HOPE for homeless gets OK

HOPE is on the way for the
homeless at the beach.
The I.M. Sulzbacher Center
for the Homeless received a
$100,000 grant Monday from
Bank of America to operate a
HOPE Van at the Beaches for
three years beginning Dec. 1.
once a van is purchased..
HOPE is an acronym for
the Homeless Outreach
Project Expansion which is
facilitated through the I.M.
Sulzbacher Center, a nonprof-
it homeless facility located at

611 E. Adams Street in down-
town Jacksonville.
Cindy Funkhouser, execu-
tive director of the Beaches
Emergency Assistance
Ministry and a member of the
board at the Sulzbacher
Center, said BEAM willpart-
ner directly with the Hope
Team to help keep the home-
less off the streets.
Two full time case man-
agers with the Sulzbacher
center will occupy office
space in the BEAM offices at
850 6th Avenue South.
"It's exciting. I'm just

beside myself," she said. "Just
having access to their
resources with their clinic,
the optical program, dental,
job and housing resources on
a daily basis is great."
Colleen Farris, director of
Public Relations at the center,
said the Hope Team works to
establish trust with the peo-
ple living on the street who
may not be coming in and
utilizing the available services
at the downtown facility.
"People living in that situa-
tion are very distrustful. The
only way to get them in is to

the landscaping for the new
Penman Road alignment proj-
The Jacksonville Beach City
Council Monday voted 6-1 to
purchase a 30-foot tide clock to
be placed at the newly paved
section of the road.
Councilman Steve
Hartkemeyer cast the opposing
vote because he said the
money would be better spent
in other areas. He said officials
should revisit plans for the
clock down the road.
"In general I like the idea of
a tide clock ,but I'm a little
miffed at.the $135,000 being
spent on a tide clock that is
more for aesthetics," he said.
"I believe the entryway that
we have designed today with-
out the tide clock will

be more than sufficient. In my
mind's eye I think that
[money] would go a long way
toward several things. Another
police officer possibly."
Cost for the clock is estimat-
ed at $118,585 with $573 bud-
geted for annual preventative


JB cityhall workers to be

behind bullet-proof shields

Some Jacksonville Beach
employees will soon be work-
ing behind bullet-proof acrylic
panels at City Hall.
The City Council Monday
authorized an improvement
program designed to better
secure Beaches Energy staff and
City Clerk employees from any
potential threat.
"I kind of hate to do this to
tell you the truth but the times
are changing and this is some-
thing I think we need to do for
the city, and the employees,"
City Manager George Forbes
City officials first discussed
implementing security meas-
ures likened to those already in
place at Atlantic Beach and

Neptune Beach facilities last
August during the annual
budget tour.
"This is something we might
utilize on the first floor [at City
Hall]," Forbes said last summer
while touring the new commu-
nity center which also houses
the administrative offices for
the Parks and Recreation
"As the world gets crazier, we
might think of doing some-
thing like this."
The new Parks and
Recreation facility is equipped
with acrylic partitions to sepa-
rate staff from the public while
still maintaining access.
Openings in the panel allow

Jax Beach to solicitdesign services to replace Carver Center

Decades have passed since the Carver
Center first opened its doors to chil-
dren in South Pablo Beach.
Noiw, the aging facility will be
replaced after 50 years of service to the
Jacksonville Beach community.
City officials Monday announced
that they planned to seek design/build
services to rebuild the youth activity
center at 730 4th Avenue South.
Last summer, Mayor Fland Sharp
acknowledged that the Carver Center
was in need of serious attention but
said the city's financial uncertainty had
indefinitely shelved any possibility for
"'t's way past rebuilding. Its func-
tional lifetime has passed," Sharp said
last July. "It's great that we've got it but
we can do better."
Sharp said the Carver Center was
among his priorities when he took

office in
.2004. .He
and City
Forbes have
the facility
for the last
three years,
he said.

The Carver Center will be replaced.

"This has
been a pet thing of mine for a long
time. We do wonderful work at the
Carver Center but it has seen its useful
lifetime expire," Sharp said.
"I would at least like to do the first
step to see what it might cost to build a
new one. With budget constraints
coming up it might be a hard thing to
do but we might as well take the first
step and look at it."

The Carver
Center was
originally built
in the early
50's and has
experienced at
least four reno-
vations over
the years. It is
now approxi-
mately 3,500
square feet.
The last

added the satellite office of the
Community Assisted Policing Effort
but age and drainage issues continue to
threaten the viability of the structure.
"I saw that on my first budget tour
and I said If there has ever been a build-
ing that needed to be replaced and
upgraded it's that building,"
Councilman Rick Knight said.
Forbes said the process will be con-

ducted in two steps to first establish a
preliminary design and cost to deter-
mine whether the project is economi-
cally feasible.
If the project moves forward, city
officials will then develop the final cost
and design..
The Carver Center is staffed by direc-
tor LaToya Thomas and Adrienne
"It is in dire need to replacement and
I don't know how LaToya and the staff
over there do what they do with as lit-
tle as they have," Councilman Steve
Hartkemeyer said.
"I commend her for that but with
the possibility of a new facility I think
many, many great things can come out
of that building."
Programs include annual summer art
camps for participants ages 6 to 14.
Campers learn skills in drawing, paint-
ing, printmaking and drama.

Etiquette lessons for parents

You know manners have gone to a very warm place in a handwoven basket wl
lowing was handed out at the beginning of a Fletcher Middle School band conce
1. Refrain from talking. This rule is the first and greatest rule. This rule includes
to or disciplining your other children.
2. Refrain from unwrapping noisy candy wrappers during performances. If t
er wanted to include crinkle paper noises to the music, he/she would have written
3. Turn off pagers, cell phones and watch alarins. While many phones and
have very symphonic-like ring tones, they don't always fit into the musical score, r
provide pleasant sounds for your neighbors.
4. Do not wave to your child during the concert. After
all, they do know who you are already and they know you are
there; you most likely brought them to the concert.
5. Do not take flash photography. You don't want you
child to walk off the edge of the stage from flash blindness,
do you?
6. Please do not walk down the center aisle with your
video camera. Video cameras work just as well from the back
of the auditorium (besides; the light is usually not good I.
enough for video taping anyway.)
7. Do not leave as soon as your child's portion of the
concert is over. All of the students deserve a full audience for
their performances. Remember, the .next time your child's
song could be last.
8. Applaud at appropriate times. Some music has server-
al sections. Remember, it's not over until all of the sections
have been performed.
9. Do not leave the auditorium during the music. Wait
for a break in the concert to visit the restroom, unless you are
carrying a screaming child, in which case you should leave T
quietly and quickly, PLEASE!
10. Go to the concert expecting the best. You might be
surprised how good your student sounds when the other stu- Ce
dents join in!

cooperation," she said. No
shelter is planned at the
Beaches and the plan is to
offer transport to the down-
town facility when request-
"Sometimes it takes several
visits before a street homeless
person is ready to accept care
[but] it is critical to ensure
that [they] know that these
services are available and
that transportation is not a
barrier to care."
Funkhouser said the out-
reach will be a collaborative
effort between both agencies,
city officials and the police
department to "make sure
we are not working at odds."
"This is a community
effort. Everyone is on the
same page," she said. "We
want to help people get off
the street and back into
housing. It sounds simplistic
but that is the bottom line."
Funkhouser said BEAM
helped four homeless fami-
lies with children this week
and the numbers continue to
"If a family comes to us
and they are homeless they
are off the street that day.
Most are working, a lot of
them are single moms," she
said. "The economy is really
bad and people are strug-

gling. It is becoming a huge,
huge issue out here."
Jacksonville Beach Mayor
Fland Sharp said he plans to
ride along with the Hope
Team in Jacksonville to get
an idea of the services they
provide and offer insight
into the homeless situation
at the Beaches.
"The Hope Van tries to get
the homeless people off the
streets and into programs at
the Sulzbacher Center to
help them become perma-
nently not homeless," Sharp
said Monday.
"The center has a very
tough love attitude and is
very successful at what they
do. I can assure you that if
they get one person a week
or one person a month off
the streets here in
Jacksonville Beach it will
save us quite a bit of money."
Sharp said it costs an esti-
mated $800 "every time you
arrest somebody and for us
[that] is a lot of money."
"We are going to keep
arresting people but if we
could just get one a month
off the street here in some
kind of program that might
turn their life around it could
save us a lot of money and I
am very supportive of that."
Without a full-service

facility available at the
Beaches, the Hope Team will
transport transients in need
of services back to the
Sulzbacher center where the
staff is equipped to handle
the varied aspects o home-
lessness from drugs and alco-
hol addictions to mental ill-
A doctor and a psycholo-
gist on staff at the center's
full service medical office
often accompany the team
to provide immediate care in
an emergency and encourage
the homeless to seek contin-
ued care at the center.
"We have to offer real
resources to get them out of
this. It's more than just
telling them what is avail-
able. It's linking them to the
services and walking them
through so they have access
and assistance to seek and
attain the things they might
need," Farris said.
"It's a very effective way to
make those connections and
get the to come in. It is a nec-
essary thing to reach out to
these people. It's core to
what we do here."

Lacking details from district, NB opts

to challenge water redistribution

by ALEXANDRA KUMMERNES the resolution.
STAFF WRITER .. "We are growing at a rate

A proposal to transfer several
million gallons of water daily to
central Florida merits review,
according to a resolution passed
unanimously by the Neptune
Beach City Council Monday.
The resolution asks the St.
Johns River Water Management
District, a taxing authority that
oversees water provision and
preservation in North Florida, to
rethink the plan.
Vice Mayor Harriet Pruette
proposed the resolution to raise
awareness about the district's
proposal, which would transfer
millions of gallons of water
daily from the St. Johns River to
central Florida.
"I support the action because
I think it encourages debate,"
said Mayor Dick Brown.
A district spokesman said last
week that they wanted to
address some concerns and clear
up confusion before the resolu-
tion was considered.
But, after a representative
from the district,
Intergovernmental Coordinator
SGeoffrey Sample, attended the
meeting to answer questions,
there was little clarification, offi-
cials said.
Pruette said Tuesday that "he
wasn't really able to answer any
Asked if the Environmental
Protection Agency has been

"It's an experiment, pure and
simple," he said in reference to
the district's proposal.
Although. Neptune Beach is
the first of the Beaches cities to
take action regarding the dis-
trict's proposal, Jacksonville
Beach City Councilor Lee Buck
wants the issue on that city
council's Nov. 19 agenda.
In a letter passed out a a meet-
ing Monday, Buck said "We
seem to be slow learners when it
comes to learning from history.

to tell us that when we start

Issues with safety

Thick ballistic-resistant acrylic panels will come between cit-
izens and customer service representatives at the city of
Jacksonville Beach's electric utility and at the city clerk's office.
The reason is to improve security at the ground floor offices
in Jacksonville Beach.
There are often large sums of money in the building, from o
customers paying their bills, and the decision was made to
beef up security after months of internal discussion among
staff. -..
The city's police chief said a security analysis of the public
building recommended the improved security, noting that
history shows many instances where people unhappy with a
perceived slight or a mistake in a bill present a security risk to
city workers. s h..
Several observers have noted that the changes were
inevitable given the violence in the world.
A little wariness and prevention are good things.
But it's lamentable that the public can't be trusted to have
impeded access to its employees. The breakdown in commu-
nication and trust will be tangible.
The change may make employees feel safer, but at what cost
to the relationship between the public and its servants?
And, if the city must spend $60,000 to safeguard its employ-
ees in Jacksonville Beach then should private businesses be
doing the same?

Do you know your PSA?

or all men 40 and over,
do you know what your
PSA level, the result of a
simple blood test to check on
your prostate, is?
I've known mine for years.
It had always been..- almost
perfect, a 1. Thought I was
perfectly safe. Until mid-
August, that is. At that junc-...
ture, my PSA report told the
urologist my.. level had
jumped to..2.3. Now, 2.3 by
itself isn't bad, unless, that is,
you've been a regular 1.
That waved a red flag,
which led to a late-August
biopsy of my prostate. And
that showed, I was told in
early September, I have early-
stage prostate cancer.
Cancer isn't a disease with
which I'm unfamiliar. One of
my mother's late-in-life afflic-
tions was colon cancer,
which is hereditary. So I go in
every so many years for a
colonoscopy. Aside from the
first, which led to removal of
a pre-cancerous polyp, every-
thing's been just fine.
This time, however, it's for
real, in a prostate sense. And
I've chosen to have my
prostate removed. There
might be/can be/will be some


downsides to that approach,
but I decided I wanted to say
goodbye to this cancer. And,
having been told it's "early
stage," I'm hoping I'm very
much ahead of the game.
Another urologist told me
my tumor has been forming
5-7 years. So, so much for all
my "perfect" reports. The PSA
tests don't necessarily tell the
full story. But, by virtue of
the fact I've known for years
what my PSA level has been,
that may have saved my life.
Yes, I could have chosen to
do nothing, since it may be a

slow-growing tumor. Or I
could have chosen to have
radiation treatment, or
cryosurgery, or have radioac-
tive seeds implanted in the
prostate. Or, for that matter, I
could have gone to the
Dominican Republic or
Mexico, where I understand
"avant garde" surgery is being
performed by American doc-
My choice is to get rid of
the prostate and, along with
it, the tumor, which hopeful-
ly hasn't metastasized. I hope
what is called a radical
prostatectomy will rid me of
the entire cancer. But I under-
stand there's no guarantee. In
that case, I'm ready to con-
tinue the battle.
After all, "health" and
"life" are very important, not
just to me, the father of two
and grandfather of one, who
would like to see them all get
a lot older, but to anyone
who might be reading this.
To all you guys who are
over 40, if you don't know
what your PSA level is, you
should. For prostate cancer is
one of the leading killers of
men and I don't intend to
be one of its victims.

Smooth sailing for PV marina

At a recent Ponte Vedra
Architectural Review
Committee (ARC) meeting; it
was smooth sailing for a pro-
posed marina that has experi-
Senced four years of sometimes
rough seas.
S ARC members voted unani-
mously to approve plans for
the Marina Club at Ponte
Vedra, to be located on the
east bank of the Intracoastal
Waterway at the intersection
of County Road 210 and
Roscoe Boulevard.
That news brought great
relief to Randy McNeal, prin-
cipal developer of the marina,
who originally bought the
land in November 2003.
"It's been a long time com-
ing, thank you," McNeal told
ARC members after they
approved his plans at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
The vote means McNeal can
apply' for a building permit,
which he says can take 45 to
60 days to acquire.
At last month's ARC meet-
ing, members refused to sanc-
tion the marina until more
specific details about the boat
storage facility were known.
At issue was a lack of foliage
along one side of the boat
storage facility in McNeal's
Bit McNeal came back with
plans that included more
palm trees and a hedge along
that side of the facility.
"I appreciate you coming
( back with more landscaping,"
ARC chairman Michael
Koppenhafer told McNeal
during the meeting.
This last obstacle was mere-
ly the latest McNeal has over-
come in order to build the
Last year, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers delayed

In addition to the boat stor-

The planned storage facility
is 17,400 square feet, and can
hold up to 156 boats.

Some of the most
incredible examples of

I've ever heard of are
covered in the Nov. 5

Talk about a golfer's

Smith said she couldn't
have gotten through that
time without the support of
her parents, Don and Mary
Lou Mikush and her parents'
friend, Father Chris Whatley
of St. Mark's Catholic
Church in Catonsville, Md.
"My parents [originally
from Maryland] have chil-
dren all over the country
where they could have
moved to, but the fact that
they were here was a god-
send," Smith said.
"And Father Whatley was

Smith said the support
from the community and
their doctors was beyond
what they could have imag-
ined. Although the Smith
family has never had to
receive funds from the Jay
Fund, they have met families
who have needed it.

They support the cause by
participating in Jay Fund
events such as the annual
holiday and Valentine's Day
"You get to know the other
families who are going
through chemo with their
children, and we've seen
families who have needed
help and what a difference it
makes in their lives," Smith
"Financially and emotion-
ally it is very difficult.
Whatever a family needs the
Jay Fund takes care of it. No
red tape. No paperwork.
What they do is amazing."
To order the "When I
Grow Up" calendar,, visit or write to the
Jay Fund at P.O. Box 50798,
Jacksonville Beach, Fla.,
32240. For more on the Jay
Fund, call 543-2599.

The mission of the Tom
Coughlin Jay Fund is to
assist children with
leukemia and other cancers
by providing emotional and
financial support to help
reduce the stress associated
with treatment.
Paying for an umbilical
cord blood transplant or a
college scholarship for a can-
cer survivor are just some of
the ways the Jay Fund sup-
ports families with children
suffering from cancer.
The fund is named for for-
mer Boston College football
player Jay McGillis, who died
of leukemia. Coughlin, for-
merly the head coach of the
Jacksonville Jaguars and cur-
rently the head coach of the
New York Giants, was
McGillis' college coach.
One of the ways the Jay
Fund raises money is by pub-
lishing an.inspirational cal-
endar featuring many of the.
cancer patients it assists.
The sixth annual "When I.
Grow Up" calendar was
released Saturday, Oct. 27,
on national "Make a
Difference Day."
"The calendar, which cost
$12, features pediatric oncol-
ogy patients dressed in what
they would like to be when
they grow up," said Keli
Coughlin, executive director
of the Jay Fund and Tom
Coughlin's eldest daughter.
"Unfortunately there are a
few children we have lost
over the years, but the calen-
dar is mostly an uplifting
childish calendar."
The Smith family of Ponte

Kayla and Reid are both
brain tumor survivors and
are featured in the calendar
as an artist and a lifeguard.
"Both my kids, tumors
were benign but in a malig-
nant location," said Donna
"They are both doing great
and are tumor-free. They get
annual MRIs, and we've had
some genetic testing at

an optic glioma in 2005, and

Paton thought it was aller-

he sent Reid to ophthalmol-

Reid went through
chemotherapy at Nemours in
Jacksonville for nearly two
years before undergoing sur-
gery to remove the tumor at
Bascom Palmer Eye Institute
in Miami.
"We went to specialists all
over the East Coast, and we
wanted a doctor who could
do the surgery and help cos-
metically so his eyelid
wouldn't droop," Smith said.
"We're so happy we went
there because his eyelid is
totally functioning."
Kayla showed no symp-
toms, but when her mother
noticed some puffiness
under one eye it got her
radar going. She went to see
the ophthalmologist and
they were not worried about
the puffiness but they got an
MRI just in case.
"They found a tumor on
her cerebellum and it was

unrelated to the puffiness, so
it was a coincidence we even
found it," Smith said. "That
was the worst day of my life.
We went two years with
Reid's tumor and I didn't
think anything was going to
show up on the MRI with

have to admit her, I was
Smith said the tumor was
found on a Thursday and
Kayla had surgery to remove
. it the following Monday.
SKayla was treated at Shands
in Gainesville, where pedi-
atric neurosurgeon Dr. David
Pincus removed the tumor.
"I had no idea how I was
going to tell her, but the
neurosurgeon was like,
'Don't worry, I'll talk to her,'
Smith said.
"The neurosurgeon was
amazing. He said, 'See that
White spot on your brain,
that's not supposed to be
there. I can take it out with
an operation and I think we
should do that so you don't
get sick. You'll be asleep and
you won't feel it. Your stom-
ach will hurt when you wake
up and your neck will hurt,
but it will go away.' And
Kayla just nodded. She
knew what to expect. She

tress, a traditional innerspring mattress or
any combination of these, we carry it," he added.
The importance of a good night's sleep becomes apparent
when Dave reminds customers that they'll spend one third
of their lives in bed. "So at Bedtime USA customer comfort
is our no 1 priority comfort in a mattress and comfort in
its priwe," Dave said.
"Because we have so many mattresses in our inventory, we
can offer our customers the most comfortable mattress avail-
able in the most comfortable price range for them," he
added. "For example, we have twin sets for as low as $199.95
and queen sets for as low as $299.95."
Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the
lowest price the manufacturer allows, which means queen
Tempur-Pedic mattresses start as low as $1,199.
But Bedtime USA has more than the mattresss of your
dreams (pun intended). "We also carry a wide selection of
adjustable beds plus bed frames, platform-type beds, head-
boards, futons, futon covers, pillows, bolsters, bed pads,
mattress protectors and even some 'beachy' decorative
items," Dave said.
Expecting overnight guests this summer? Bedtime USA
can help. "\We carry Night and Day Furniture, which manu-
factures some of the best futons available," Dave said. "They
offer 40 different designs of futons, and we showcase 10
models in our store, not to mention more than 300 fabric
samples from SIS Fabrics, a leader in designer furniture
upholstery." Plus, Bedtime USA adds a futon mattress cover

Today's hectic schedules keep us on the
go, and getting the uninterrupted sleep
researchers say we need can be a challenge.
. top-quality mattress can be the first step
to quality sleep. Dave Fox, factory-trained
and -certified mattress specialist and owner
of Bedtime USA in lacksonville Beach, can
help you find a mattress tailored to your
individual preferences so you can get the
rest you need and deserve.
Family-owned and operated and cele-
brating four years in business in
Jacksonville Beach, Bedtime USA is your
mattress headquarters. Dave and his staff
have the expertise and inventory you need
to help you find the right mattress at the
right price.
"We are not a chain, vet we are one of
the only stores in northeast Florida and
southeast Georgia that carries such a com-
plete line of mattresses and bedding prod-
ucts," said Dave, who himself has more
than 20 years of experience in the business
and has lived at the Beaches for nine \ears.
"\Ve have more than 40 mattresses on dis-
play, and we'll help you find the one that's
just right for you and your budget!"
No matter what type of mattress you're
looking for, Bedtime USA most likely has it.
The list of brand-name products available
is impressive, including mattresses by
Tempur-Pedic, Simmons, Englander.
Restonic, Spring Air, Chattam &t Wells, and
futons by Night and Day Furniture and
Anchor Furniture.
Bedtime USA carries all eight models of
the popular Tempur-Pedic brand includ-
ing the GrandBed and the new BellaSonna
Bed. "Tempur-Pedic is often described as
the "Cadillac" of mattresses because of its
extravagant design and unsurpassed luxu-
ry," Dave said. "No matter what type of
mattress you prefer a natural latex mat-
tress, a visco-elastic memory foam mat-

with every futon frame and mattress purchase.
But Bedtime USA offers even more than wide selection
and variety, according to Dave. "We also provide a level of
personalized customer service not found in many larger
chains and that makes us different," he said. "At Bedtime
USA we take care of our customers, work with them one on
one and help them make sound purchasing decisions."
Bedtime USA also offers free delivery throughout the
Greater Jacksonville area on a schedule convenient for cus-
tomers and their schedules. Some retailers offer a three-hour
or even half-day delivery "window." Not Bedtime USA. "Not
only do we give our customers a one-hour delivery schedule
but we also give them a call when the delivery truck leaves
the store," Dave said.
Stop by Bedtime USA and,talk with Dave to see bow. y'p
can treat yourself to some well-deserved rest. Be sure to ask
about special financing, too, which offers zero-percent
financing over three years for Tempur-Pedic products and
zero-percent financing for 12 months for all other merchan-
dise totaling more than $800.

Last Friday, Beaches Chapel School hosted a school wide Blue Angel's Play Day.
Families enjoyed watching the Blue Angels fly over the school. Students and parents
enjoyed a family cook-out during lunch and afterwards had fun doing balloon relays, cro-
quet, football toss, face painting, paper airplane decorating and a bouncy house.
Students dressed in patriotic or military clothing to show their support of the Sea and Sky
Spectacular. For more information call 241-4211 or go to

Other first-year starting line-

Andy Reed and right tackle
Chris Spencer, all seniors.
Reed (6,3, 230) is a convert-

260), who did not play last
year, is versatile enough to
play both, tackle or guard.

"I'm really pleased he's start-

a program guy who stuck with

"He's not really big enough
to play the position, but he
gets the job done every week."
"Matt is a guy who you
wondered if he was going to

never quite made the starting
lineup," added Conroy.
"He's a guy who had to step
into a role James Wilson left.
Buit he has a great work ethic
and he's someone T'can
depend on."
In Reed, Nease has an athlet-
ic tackle it can utilize as a

"The offensive line does not
get the headlines or the statis-
tics, but you don't win district
championships or go deep into
the playoffs without them,"
said Howard, whose son, Bo,
was the starting center for
Nease's 2005 state champi-
onship squad.
"It's a team within a team
and the timing and the execu-
tion has to be just right. Most
of them don't start until they
are seniors."

ers and orderly minds, Howard

While their offensive team-
mates practice exciting run-
ning and passing plays, line-

pushing blocking sleds and
running through chutes.
Conroy defers some of the
credit for Nease's ability to
reload on linemen to the
team's year round weight and
conditioning program.
"Danny Cowgill has a lot to
do with that," said Conroy
about Nease's defensive coordi-
nator and strength coach.
"'O"Otifeifght room develop-
ment has been incredible.

Minus the services of leading

yards), who sat out Friday's
game with an ankle injury,
Nease rushed for a game-high
145 yards against Middleburg.

Howard, who never is at a
loss for inspiring words or his-
torical analogies, likens his
unheralded offensive line to
an under-appreciated beast of
burden from American folk-
"Even though offensive line
is not a gloried position, you
can't do without them," said
"Where'would Paul Revere

Shepler wins another girls

state diving championship


Nease High's Kirstyn Shepler won her second
consecutive state title in diving during last
weekend's Class 2A swimming and diving cham-
pionships in Orlando.
Shepler edged Claire Page of Middleton by
8.90 points (415.85-406.95) to successfully
defend the 1-meter state title she won last year.
The junior completed an undefeated season
for the Panthers and helped the Nease girls team
earn a tenth-place finish with 77 points. Boca
Raton won the Class 2A state title with 256
Shepler's teammate, Shannon Thompson, fin-
ished 15th in the diving competition.
Kristen Gerkens placed eighth in the 100-yard
backstroke in 1:00.62.
In the boys state championship meet, Matt
Schlytter helped the Panthers swim to a ninth-
place finish with 101 points. Miami's Belen
Jesuit Prep won the Class 2A title with 275.5
Schlytter was edged by just .17 of a second in
the 50-yard freestyle race after clocking a time of
21.33 seconds. Kelley Wyman of Tallahassee

won the event in 21.16.
Schlytter also finished eighth in the 100
freestyle in 48.41 seconds and- teamed with
Nicholas Holterman, Thomas Brad Scott and
Will Stevenson to earn third place in the 200
freestyle relay in a time of 1:29.00.
The junior also helped Nease earn a fourth-
place finish in the 400 freestyle relay when he
teamed with the same teammates to finish in

The Panthers fought to a nil-all draw with the
Bulldogs Saturday afternoon at Bolles.
After rolling up a season-opening 4-1 victory
over Beaches rival Fletcher High last Tuesday
and a 3-1 win over Episcopal last Thursday, the
Panthers could not find the back of the net in
Saturday's defensive struggle.
Nease was set to continue its busy early-season
schedule with three games this week including
Monday night's clash with Clay, a trip to Pedro
Menendez High on Tuesday and a return home
to host Atlantic tomorrow night beginning at
5:30 p.m..
The Panthers are 2-0-1 on the season.

Post 129 hosts another successful event

Ed Stanford won this year's
Post 129 Croaker
Tournament with his
three-pound, three-ounce
croaker. Larry Clark had the
heaviest five croaker aggregate
at nine pounds, 12.5 ounces.
Ray Cabrera caught the

another wonderful tourna-
ment and fish fry.
Congratulations to Clyde
Aspen and his committee for a
great tournament.
The best out of town report
last week comes from Chuck
Darner, his sons Scott and Rob
and friend Bill Wilderotter.
Their three-day trip to Venice,
Louisiana was cut to one
because of the high seas.
On the one calm day, how-



ever, they caught a pair of
hefty yellowfin tuna at 80 and
100 pounds and their limit of
red snapper. The entire crew
revealed that fishing the oil
rigs 65 miles into the blue gulf
water is a great experience.
Flounder and red bass
remain strong in our area.
Capt. Mike Morris, with Roger
Mente and Jim Mitchell last
weekend, caught 18 reds, 12

trout, three flounder, a drum
and a blue.
On a Sunday trip, Capt.
Mike, David Dryden and his
father Mike caught 83 speck-
led trout, seven reds and four
Troy Hutto, Mike C. and
Bubba used finger mullet and
mud minnows in the river to
catch 30 flounder weighing up
to five and a half pounds.
Johnny Nettles and his son
Brad fished with guide Fred
Morrow in the river last Friday.
They netted six sheepshead,
two drum, three yellowmouth
and 223 croakers.
Capt. David Merry on his
Saturday trip last week with
Jim Thomas, fished for two
hours on one of his favorite
spots and caught 26 flounder
weighing from three to seven
pounds. All of their fish were
caught on finger mullet.
Capt. Kirk Waltz, fishing
from his "Enterprise" with Pat

Devlin and his son Zack, had a
great trip last Sunday. Fishing
for only four hours at Ft.
George they boxed 14 reds, 13
sheepshead, five croakers and
a dozen ladyfish.
Freddy Bridges and his wife
Judy trolled the canal with
artificial last Sunday and
caught nine speckled trout to
three pounds.
Larry "Fishman" Finch
fished the river near the
Dames Point Bridge and
caught a dozen sheepshead
and 10 flounder with live fin-
ger mullet and fiddlers.
Capt. GeorgeStrate and his
guests on the "Mayport
Princess" made a trip to the
party grounds on Sunday.
Anglers brought up 21 snapper
weighing between eight and
15 pounds, a pair of amber-
jack, four cobia to 47 pounds
and lots of beeliners and sea

Did Tebow resurrect Heisman

chances with Saturday's win?

ust when they were giving
up on the chances of Tim
Tebow to make a showing
his year's Heisman Award
running, the pride of Nease
High football rose to the occa-
Never sell short a champion
he will come back and show
why he is a champion. Tebow
did that on Saturday when he
set a new Southeastern
Conference record with his
14th rushing touchdown of
the season, eclipsing by one
the old mark of 13 set by
Kentucky's Derrick Ramsay in
1977 and Georgia's Andy
Johnson in 1971.
On top of that, besides
Tebow's two rushing touch-
downs, the sophomore also
passed 281 yards for three
more scores in leading the
Gators to a 49-22 victory.
Saturday's performance was-
n't against Podunk Teachers
College, but against a tough
Vanderbilt team that is gaining
more respect in the conference
each week.
And Tebow did it with a
shoulder not yet healed from
the injury he sustained a few
weeks ago against Kentucky.
First, with three Florida loss-
es, Tebow's chances of winning
the Heisman are extremely lim-
ited, especially as he's a mere
sophomore sensation. Then
the bad shoulder, which limit-
ed the quarterback in the
Georgia defeat, seemed to cut
short his chances of doing any-
thing special the rest of the

There's another asset on his
ledger. Tebow's deportment has
been way above reproach. In
an era in which so many ath-
letes are guilty of bad conduct,
the pride of the Gators stands
out as a role model for young-
The Gators not only showed
an All-American style in
Tebow, but in fellow sopho-
more Percy Harvin who

.. yards rushing and receiving. In
so doing, Harvin became the
L- first 100/100 man in Florida's
storied football history.

downs, Harvin rushed for 113
yards and picked up 110 yards

Caldwell also snagged nine of

Low-income households boost

Florida's consumer confidence

Florida's consumer confi-
dence rose three points to 80 in
October largely due to opti-
mism among low-income resi-
dents, a new University of
Florida study finds.
One possible explanation is
that these consumers, having
already experienced the worst
of the housing crisis, now look
forward to property tax reform,
or it could be the result of some
unknown factor, said Chris
McCarty, director of the Survey
Research Center at UF's Bureau
of Economic and Business
"Consumer confidence in
Florida, which has been lower
than the nation, is now very
close to the national number of
80.9 as measured by the
University of Michigan,"
McCarty said. "The source of
the rise in Florida appears to be
low-income households, those
living off of less than $30,000
"For these people, consumer
confidence was already as low
as it has been for a long time, so
it's almost to the point where
the only way it could go was up,
whereas there was still room for

confidence among middle- and
upper-income households to
decline, which turned out to be
flat this month," he said.
While consumer confidence
among middle- and upper-
income households has
remained the same at 81, the
measure for low-income house-
holds rose from66 in September
to 75 in October, he said.
"The rise in confidence
among low-income households
appears to be driven by
improved personal finances
now compared to a year ago
and expectations about
improvement over the next
year," McCarty said.
Among this group, there was
a huge increase in perceptions
about whether it is a good time
to buy big-ticket items, from 68
to 86.
"Respondents may have
already factored in the ill effects
of housing and are anticipating
improvement," he said. "They
may also be looking toward
property tax reform from the
Florida Legislature as a source of
relief as the governor and
Legislature considers property
tax cuts."
The housing debacle has hit
Florida hard compared to the

nation as a whole, McCarty
said. Florida, along with
California, Arizona, Nevada and
parts of Washington, D.C., have
suffered very large declines in
sales and housing prices, he
Last month's overall con-
sumer confidence was revised
downward two points to 77
after all completed surveys were
included in the index.
The rise in this month's con-
fidence was due to increases in
three of the five components
that make up the index.
Perceptions of U.S. economic
conditions over the next year
rose six points to 75, percep-
tions of whether it is a good
time to buy big-ticket items rose
four points to 85 and expecta-
tions of personal finances a year
from now rose four points to
The two components to
experience declines were U.S.
economic conditions over the
next five years, which fell two
points to 78, and perceptions of
personal finances now com-
pared to a year ago, which fell
one point to 70.
On the positive side, gas
prices declined briefly in
October, but they are likely to

go up as oil prices on the inter-
national market rise, he said.
Such a price increase would
occur just as the holiday season
approaches, McCarty said.
"Retailers will very likely slash
prices early to get otherwise
hesitant consumers in the
door," he said.
The research center conducts
the Florida Consumer Attitude
Survey monthly. Respondents
are 18 or older and live in
households telephoned ran-
domly. The preliminary index
for October was 434 responses.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buying
patterns by measuring the
mood of consumers toward
purchasing. Although other
economic indicators also pre-
dict buying patterns, consumer
confidence tends to be available
sooner. The index is bench-
marked to 19'66, so a value of
100 represents the same level of
confidence for the year. The
value of the index is in compar-
ing changes over time rather
than looking at an isolated

Northeast Florida Realtors

offer training courses

The Northeast Florida
Association of Realtors has
begun offering specialized
"short sales" training courses
for its members as a measure to
help financially distressed
homeowners avoid foreclo-
Some homeowners with
adjustable rate mortgages or
interest-only loans are finding
it tough to keep up with their
increased monthly payments.
For those who have little or no
equity in their homes, trying
to sell their property results in
an upside-down financial situ-
ation. Often, homeowners
don't even recognize that they
are facing a financial problem
until they are ready to list their
home and learn that the cur-
rent market value is less than
what they owe on their mort-
A short sale occurs when a
mortgage lender agrees to
accept a payoff of less than the
balance due on the loan. A
short sale may or may not
involve a property in foreclo-
sure. Many lenders are now
more actively working with
property owners to find solu-
tions rather than charging off a
delinquent loan or foreclosing
on the property, since alternate
options are usually less costly
and time consuming for the
lender. Unfortunately, home-
owners often don't realize that
pre-foreclosure or short-sale
options may be available a

situation in which having the
specialized knowledge of a
Realtor working on their
behalf is invaluable.
Short sales can offer great
advantages for homeowners.
One is that all mortgage debt is
fully discharged. Another sig-
nificant advantage is the
-reduced negative impact on
the homeowner's credit score,
since short sales appear on a
credit report as "pre-foreclo-
sure in redemption," rather
than "debt discharged due to
Because a short sale involves
the seller's negotiating with
the lender, these transactions
can be more complicated.
NEFAR President Hank
Oltman'ns says, "Short sales
can require more work for
Realtors. Helping a seller
resolve their difficult financial
situation to avoid foreclosure,
however, makes it all worth-
while. It helps sellers, it helps
our overall economy, and it's a
service we're happy to pro-
