Concerned that a recession may
push some families over the edge
financially while also impacting
donations, Beaches Emergency
Assistance Ministry (BEAM) will be
challenged in 2008.
That was the consensus of BEAM
board member who attended a recent
strategic planning session to discuss
how to meet increased demands for
assistance that are expected this year.
Based on the "huge increased need
for assistance that BEAM has experi-
enced over the past three years,"
BEAM has set a budget goal of
$520,000 for 2008, an increase of 24
percent over last year, according to
BEAM's executive director Cindy
The increase stems from the num-
ber of clients requesting assistance,
the growing financial need of these
clients, the amount of food currently
being distributed and the additional
types of services that BEAM now
In 2007, BEAM assisted 6,954
Beaches residents. This number does
not include the more than 800 chil-
dren served at the organization's Back
to School event, the 300 families that
received Thanksgiving baskets or the-

608 children that were helped for
Christmas. The number also does not
include any of the clients that receive
ancillary services such as mental
health counseling, budget counsel-
ing, legal counseling or income tax
Over the last three years the num-
ber of people assisted by BEAM has
increased by 65 percent, the board
In 2005 BEAM distributed 58,000
pounds of food, while in 2007 BEAM
distributed almost 140,000 pounds of
food an increase of 240 percent in
3 years.
All of the food distributed by BEAM
is donated by Beaches area churches,
schools, businesses, organizations
and individuals.
"The fact that this community is so
generous is the only reason that
BEAM has been able to keep up with
the demand for food assistance,"
Funkhouser said.
BEAM provides these services with
two full- time and two part-time staff
and 40 regular weekly volunteers.
BEAM volunteers logged roughly
10,000 hours in 2007 which helped
BEAM keep costs low. BEAM had only
a 19 percent administrative cost in
2007, that means that 81 percent of

An "art project" mural on the side of a Neptune Beach business will remain intact after months of
debate. Owners of Day and Night Moves, Inc. will be allowed to leave a mural of a sun and moon
on the west side of the building after City Council Monday approved the art project in a 4-1 deci-
sion. The painting sparked debate because the city previously said that the art was considered a
sign, but the ratio was larger than what the city allows. To alleviate confusion, the city passed an
ordinance to define an "art project" as "any mural, illustration, painting or sculpture that is
approved by the City Council as art that enhances the commercial district." Councilor John
Weldon Monday said he was opposed to the Day and Night moves art project because it is
"clearly a commercial sign." He added that the business owners are using a technicality to have
a commercial sign.

Child care and job help are coming

- BEAM, from A-1

all funding that comes in goes
directly to Client Program
Costs, the board said.
Over the past 3 years BEAM
has worked to bring resources
and services back to the
Beaches community,
Funkhouser said.
Social services had been
steadily moving away from the
Beaches community over the
last decade as budget cuts made
Beaches satellite offices too
expensive for many agencies,
according to BEAM. To curb the
problem, BEAM has been
restoring services back to the
Beach by offering free office
space in exchange for free serv-
ices for affected people in the

community, she said.
The additional services that
BEAM has brought to the
Beaches include: Food
Stamps/Medicaid ACCESS site,
additional utility funding, gov-
ernment foodbudget counsel-
ing, free income tax prep,
financial literacy classes, men-
tal health counseling, Medicaid
Choice counseling, housing
counseling and the Beaches
Hope Team, BEAM reported.
BEAM is currently looking for
resources for job counseling
and child care assistance for the
coming year. By providing
these services, BEAM is able to
help clients not just by keeping
them housed and their utilities

turned on but by helping these
families become self-sufficient
in the long-term, Funkhouser
BEAM's ultimate goal is to
assist families in becoming
financially independent.
"BEAM is bracing for
increased need in 2008, with
faith and confidence that the
generous spirit of Beaches resi-
dents, churches, schools,
organizations and businesses
will continue to support
Beaches neighbors in need,"
Funkhouser said.

In a draft version of the RFP;,
the agency said it is "seeking an
artist or artists team who can
understand and express in their
art the connection to historic,
contemporary and future
expressions of the vibrancy of
the location."
Michael Dunlap, who is on
the Town Center Board, said
that some type of public art has
always been intended for the
area and that the concept has
been 10 years in the making.
If an RFP is issued, the agency
may have an exhibit at Dancin'
in the Streets to showcase some
of the options, he added.
Elmore also said that if the'
project moves forward, he

" The Leader's Opinion

Spend taxes objectively

Spending public money on art for public places has
sparked substantial public debate in recent months.
That did not deter Atlantic Beach City Commissioners,
however, as they voted 3-2 to spend $45,000 in bed tax
funds to buy a bronze sculpture. Their expenditure will be
matched with a $50,000 appropriation from Jacksonville
City Council discretionary funds. -
Much has been said about whether such an expenditure
can be justified in such tough economic times.
We would suggest, however, that the question is rele-
vant no matter what the economic times. Taxes are com-
pulsory and when they are used to fund frivolity and gra-
cious living, it is reasonable to challenge whether that is
appropriate government spending.
No amount of questioning, however, will alter the deci-
sion in Atlantic Beach. But the recent art acquisition can
provide a valuable lesson.
All of us would benefit if our municipalities were to
clearly develop objective blueprints for all future expendi-
tures that do not clearly and directly contribute to the bot-
tom line for public health and safety.
If an expenditure does not improve public safety or
assure our collective wellbeing, citizens and their elected
officials should have clear guidelines on why public
money should be utilized.
Objective measures and guidelines would remove the
emotional part of the funding decision. And, when it
comes down to it, whether the economic times are bear-
ish or bullish, the public's money and trust must be pro-
Homeowners who can't afford to pay their taxes risk los-
ing their homes. Taxpayers should know that their taxes
are being used for essential public services, not pretty dec-
orations for the neighborhood they may no longer be able
to afford.

We deserve a 'Go to Hell' reply

The thing I like most about

other on the sidewalk or in the
hallway, hold the door for oth-
ers, and check on the family

importantly, we extend a help-

neighbor in need.
But a recent string of blus-
tery proclamations by our self-
absorbed politicians has me
wondering if the concept may
be fading. When our neigh-
bors in Georgia asked for:
water to ease their recent
drought, we politely told them
to go to hell. When our neigh-

Florida asked to use water from
the St. Johns River we, not so
politely, told them" to go to

be the most effective way to
ease their .needs. The
Riverkeeper, on the other
hand, objected.
I would expect him to

Nothing but a collective "go

All benefit from working together for h

To the editor:
The Sulzbacher Center is so
grateful for the warm welcome
our HOPE team received when
they arrived at-the beaches on
January 22. Businesses, law
enforcement, local government
and individual residents have
shown their support for the
HOPE Beaches program, which
provides services to homeless
men, women and children in
the beaches area. A full under-
standing of the services offered
by the HOPE team should instill
a real sense of pride in Beaches
residents, but some mispercep-
tions about the program's pur-
pose persist.
HOPE Beaches is the newest
program offered by The
Sulzbacher Center, a
Jacksonville-based provider of
comprehensive services to
homeless men, women and

children for over twelve years.
Over the last seven years, the
Downtown HOPE team has
made over 5,500 referrals for
homeless individuals to receive
shelter, substance abuse treat-
ment, medical, dental, vision
and psychiatric care. HOPE
Beaches founded on this very
successful model will provide
the same linkage of services for
the homeless population at the
beach. The ultimate goal of this
program, and of all programs at
The Sulzbacher Center, is to
move individuals into stable

Those new to state feel like dog amor

To the editor:
The recent vote on the prop-
erty tax initiative, to me, was
such a big disappointment.
Being a recent arrival to
Atlantic Beach (3 years), I have
been paying more than 5 times
the taxes than my neighbors of
lengthier residency who live in
similar homes, if not nicer and
larger, pay.
Now, should they move, they
will still be immune to this
obscene tax rate that I pay.
Between taxes and insurance, I
pay 14 percent of my gross
annual income. I am tithing to
the State of Florida, and then
some. This amount exceeds my
marginal federal tax rate.
As a result of the vote, we can
expect to pay more in fees for
services now. These are taxes
that we can't deduct on our fed-
eral income tax returns, but we
will still demand the services we
have come to expect and they
cost. What exactly is the long
term gain here? Please, some-
one enlighten me without the
use of mirrors.

It seems to me that Floridians
don't understand the concept of
"paying for what you want or
forego the desire". There is a
denial that the tax system is out
of control and our elected lead-
ers have done nothing to help
educate the general population
as to where this line of thought
is leading.
The real estate market is
depressed across the country
and I can't really see selling my
house, because full disclosure
would mean that any potential
owners from out of state will
realize what the annual tax lia-
bility is and they would choose
to live somewhere else: that
leaves one of the lucky
Floridians with the new porta-
bility measure at their disposal
and a depressed market working
against me.
On my loan disclosure state-
ment, I was afforded only the
current taxes on the house
when I purchased. I did not
know that my taxes would
increase 550% above that num-
ber. My bad- I should have done

Steve Windley with some of his third-grade math students at Finegan Elementary School in Atlantic.Beach.

Windley understands Navy life

Steve Windley is turn-
-ing students into
athletese" at Finegan
Elementary School in
Atlantic Beach.
Students practicing their
multiples in a speedball
game around the classroom
is one of the many ways he
makes learning fun.
Windley is in his 12th
year of teaching mathemat-
ics, science and social stud-
ies at Finegan. He is the
school's teacher of the year.
"I think third grade is the
most important for math
because this is the year
when the harder concepts
are introduced," said
"The multiplication and
division are huge steps.
They can't move on without
knowing them inside and
Every year teachers and
staff in Duval County Public
Schools are asked to nomi-
nate and vote for teacher of
the year to represent their
school in the district and
state Teacher of the Year
Recognition Program.
Finegan Elementary is a
Florida top 100 and "A"
rated school near Hanna
* Windley is known as the
teacher who rides his bike to
school from his home in
Atlantic Beach and the go-to
teacher for any questions
pertaining to math.
He is also known as the
"Miracle Man" after surviv-
ing a near-fatal car accident

Steve Windley wanted to
teach at a school that caters
to children of Navy families.
two years ago in which he
broke his back and was told
he: would never walk again.
He returned to Finegan in
a wheelchair and after
months of rehabilitation he
can walk again.
"It was a miracle that he
lived through it and it did
something to him as I guess
any near-death experience
would," said third-year
Finegan Principal David
"While he was already a
great teacher he came back
as an awesome teacher.
Steve has a way of question-
ing children that leads them
to the answer. He leads
them to understanding; he
leads them to a higher order
of thinking; he leads them
to multiple solutions by his
questioning. He has a gift

for it.
"That's why I call him the
miracle man. It's amazing
that he's even alive and.
then the miracle of how he
leads children; it's guided,
directed, purposeful, rigor-
ous, educational fun. You
wouldn't wait for' a better
teacher for your children."
Windley grew up in
Jacksonville and graduated
from Terry Parker High
School in 1991. He started
as an engineering major at
the University of Central
Florida, but when he took
an Intro to Education class
to fulfill a writing require-
ment, he switched major to
education. He started his
career teaching at Finegan,
which serves many Navy
"I was a child of the Navy
and that's why I wanted a
Navy school," Windley said.
"I know what it's. like when
dad's out on an eight-month
deployment and I think it
helps to have a guy around.
I wanted to give back. At
our school we are a family."
When Pinter came to
Finegan in 2005 he
approached Windley with
the idea of moving down
from fifth grade to third
grade which would then be
In previous years, a third
grade teacher taught all sub-
jects and Finegan had strug-
gled with grades of C and B.
Finegan has earned a grade
of "A" since 2005.
"For a lot of years I had
fifth graders who couldn't
do what my third graders
are doing now," Windley

"Pinter came to me and
said that I could move down
to third grade and nip it in
the bud so kids would never
come up and not know the
basics. And they did really,
really, well. Our scores have
shot through the roof-since,
Pinter became principal."
As Finegan's lead math
teacher, Windley dissemi-
nates all the information
relating to math from DCPS
Sto the math teachers at
Finegan. He is also on the
leadership team at the
school in which several
teachers of various grade
levels meet to discuss school
"We.want to create an
environment to get every-
body on the same page as
far as discipline and what
routines and rituals we do in
the classroom and what
behavior is expected in the .
hallway, the cafeteria, the
playground," he said.
"It makes it easier on the
students and the teachers if
everybody knows what is
Windley is also chairman
of the shared decision com-
mittee which meets at the
Schultz Center to discuss
ways to improve learning.
"Basically what we've
done at our school is that
every grade feeds into the
next so we're not repeating
things," Windley said.
"Now we want to connect
sixth, seventh and eighth
,grade. Our kids come out of
here pretty strong and we
want them to keep run-

look for Wendall Sheppard's
cakes on the bake sale table.
The five rum cakes he
baked for the most recent
event sold shortly after the
doors opened.
His fruitcake, showcased
on a glass-covered cake plate,
was one of the raffle items at
the event.
Sheppard said he learned
to cook more than 30 years
ago out of necessity. As a sin-
gle parent raising three chil-
dren, he said he simply
"needed something on the
table" to feed them.
What began as a slow
process of learning the basics
eventually turned into a life-
long interest in cooking.
He also learned to be an
accomplished baker. Over
the years Sheppard has host-
ed countless dinner parties,
church dinners, family birth-
day celebrations and holiday
dinners at his Atlantic Beach
Among his favorite recipes
are many handed down from
his mother and grandmoth-
er. Holiday dinners often. .
include many southerni.;- i'!
favorites from Sheppard's
childhood, such as ambrosia,
pound cake, red velvet cake,
fresh egg nog and roast -


Sheppard also has about
400 cookbooks, including a
complete set of Southern
Living magazine cookbooks
dating from 1979.
His collection of dishware
includes sets of china and
pottery with up to 30 place
settings. He keeps the dish-
ware in a walk-in closest spe-
cially fitted to accommodate
dishes, glassware, crystal,
flatware and serving pieces.
"My Mom's Ice Box Pies"
are two recipes Sheppard
used when entertaining.
Both pies, peach and blue-
berry, must be made at least
a day before serving, he says.
Sheppard remembers that
his mother substituted sour
cream for a whipped cream
topping for these pies back
in the 1940s when some
foods were hard to find.
Substituting sour cream for
whipped cream turned out to
be an improvement on the
original recipe, Sheppard

Wendall Sheppard's storage closet is fitted with shelves for
china, pottery and glassware to make entertaining easy.

Lifeguard recruits 'watching the boat'

Lifeguard recruits."watch the boat" as instructor Rick Foster
(right) points out some last-minute instructions on Sunday.

Winter recruits with the American Red
Cross Volunteer Lifesaving Corps of
Jacksonville Beach underwent their first
training tests Sunday at the University
-of North Florida's Aquatic Center.
They swam laps, tread water in the
deep end and dove for quarters and
When the recruits weren't immersed
in the heated pool, they stood at atten-
tion "watching the boat."
"Look to your left and right," assistant
instructor Demian Harris told the more
than 30 recruits, who were lined up in a
row on the pool deck according to
"Those are the ones who are not going

"Watching the boat" will become a
common team-building exercise for the

winter recruit class over the next three
-The drill involves standing at atten-
tion with eyes fixed on an imaginary
lifeboat at sea.
In its halcyon days, the Corps utilized
wooden lifeboats for ocean rescues and
to assist boaters in distress.
Today, wooden lifeboats are iconic
images of the organization's storied
past, which dates to 1912.
"Get some water, stretch out and get
back on the line and watch the boat,"
Rick Foster, the Corps' lead instructor,
told recruits who completed a 22-lap
pool swim on Sunday.
Swimming 550 yards in less than 12
minutes is a minimum requirement for
lifeguard recruits. Full-fledged Corps
members must swim the same distance
in under 10 minutes.
More than two-thirds of the recruits
swam the 550 in under 13 minutes on
One dropped out after three laps.
Another threw up on the pool deck. The

fastest recruit clocked in at just over six
minutes. The slowest finisher took more
than 20 minutes to complete the task.
Moving down the line, Foster told
recruits who failed to make the 12-
minute time standard that their training
days were numbered.
"If you can't do it in under 13 minutes
next time, I'll have to ask you to leave,"
Foster said in a soft voice.
Later that afternoon, Foster gave a
similar speech to four recruits who
failed to complete a mile run in under
10 minutes, another minimum stan-
Two other qualifying criteria were
held Sunday: Treading water for five
minutes and retrieving objects, includ-

2006 winter recruit class.
"We are going to be teach-
ing you how to rescue people
no matter where you are."
The 2008 winter recruit
class began Jan. 27 with a

Recruits begin learning CPR
the next two Sundays, fol-
lowed by a 40-hour first
responder course.
Foster said recruits who fail
to meet the time standards
for the pool swim and the
mile beach run will be certi-
fied in CPR upon departure.
"Approximately 10 to 15
percent of recruits graduate
from this program," says a

Bulldogs again end Senators campaign

Fletcher can't find net

in regional quarterfinal

Last year, Flagler Palm Coast
boys soccer standout Jason
Alverez ended Fletcher High's
season with his foot.
He did it again last
Thursday night.
Alverez booted the lone goal
in the regional quarterfinal
match at Fletcher with about
eight minutes remaining in
the game, ending the Senators
season by a 1-0 count. It was
the same score by the same
team that ended Fletcher's run
a year ago.
"That was a great goal,"
Fletcher head coach Mike
Levine said of Alverez's kick.
"I thought we played well all
night, we just didn't finish.
"I don't think they did any-
thing spectacular defensively.
We created some opportuni-
ties but we should have been a
little more poised in the box.
They scored a great goal. That
wasn't a typical goal on any
level. Not high school, not
college or the pros. It was just
a great goal."
With both team battling out
a scoreless game near the
Senators' goal, Alverez hit the
ball just outside the box and
slipped it past Fletcher goal-
keeper Taylor Wyman in the
top right comer of the net.
A year ago, playing in a
scoreless match against the
same team on the same field,
Alverez calmly approached a
penalty kick late in the game
and sent his Bulldogs to victo-

"When we were sitting there
talking after the game, I told
the players if we were going to
lose, at least we lost on a great
goal," Levine said. "That was
just the story of the game.

Fletcher (20-2-2) appeared
to dominate possession early
in the contest, keeping the
ball at the Bulldogs' (20-1-1)
end of the field and limiting

Party boat anglers come up with great catches

Anglers coming off the
party boats last week had
the fishing community
buzzing as they unloaded their
eye-popping catches of snap-
per, grouper, beeliners and sea
Capts. George Strate on the
"Mayport Princess," Scott
Reynolds on the "King Nep-
tune" and Dennis Young on
his "Sea Dancer" reported bent
poles on every stop they made.
Don't forget the very popu-
lar El Cheapo Sheepshead
Tournament sponsored by the
J.O.S.EC to be held on
Saturday February 23rd. Entry
forms can be picked up at any
of the local bait and tackle
shpps. The entry fee is $60.
The captains meeting will be
held on the 22nd at 7:30 p.m.
in the J.O.S.F.C club house.
Houston Stevens led smiling
anglers off the "Mayport


Princess" Sunday afternoon
with a pair of ten pound snap-
per and a cooler full of big sea
bass and beeliners.
Other anglers were gathered
around the cleaning table with
28 other snapper weighing up
to 17 pounds, two big amber-
jack, a 16-pound grouper and
dozens of big sea bass and bee-
liners. One angler reported

that they caught 35 snapper
on the Monday trip.
On the "King Neptune," the
story was much the same.
Snapper weighing up to 15
pounds were iced down in all
coolers along with some of the
largest sea bass and beeliners
that have hit the cleaning
table this season.
Capt. Dennis Young with the
Kevin Coleman party on the
"Sea Dancer" was the next
boat to report in at Mayport
Marine on Sunday. They
caught their limit of 10 snap-
per weighing up to 12 pounds
and 30 huge sea bass.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his,
"Enterprise" with Mark and
Andy Wise made a jetty trip on
Sunday and they weren't dis-
appointed. They anchored off
the tip of the north rocks and
pulled up four reds to 38 inch-
es, two sheepshead to seven
pounds, a drum and one trout.
In the canal, veteran guide
John Dyrssen and Dwight
Hibbard teamed up Wednesday
for three flounder, 10 blues
and two keeper trout out of a
dozen. On Thursday, Dr.
Fechtel and a friend fished the
canal and creeks with John
and caught 14 trout (kept two)
and a dozen blues.
Willie Ulmer and Louise
Carson used artificial in the
river near Sanford last Sunday
and caught 24 shad weighing
between two and three pounds
along with seven perch. They
trolled and cast their plugs
throughout the morning.
Al Wiltshire and friend Jim
Bell on Jim's "Renegade" fished
the river last week near N.A.S.

Trend alert curly girls!
Perms are (sort-of) mBack!

That's right, you heard it this spring!
here first. Perms are making
a comeback. More specifical-
ly, wavy curly hair is back in
vogue and perms are making
their way back in the public's
confidence after the big hair
"wave" of the '80's. To this
end spiral perms are again
being considered as an alter-
native to poker straight hair. F
Spiral perms are different Febr
than regular perms as per the
direction of the curl. This o111
usually works better with
longer hair and it costs a bit
more than a traditional perm
but the look is sexy. Perms
dry out your hair so in case 500/
you've forgotten the drill, it's 0
all about conditioning! You
can use the diffuser to dry All
your locks so you don't have
to have wet hair ever morn-
ing and you can blow it out
to straighten. Those with fine .
hair will enjoy the added
fullness without the curls. 548 Atlanhc

Browsing and shopping.
for books should be fun.
It should be something to
brighten your day and a
way to escape the trials or
boredom of the everyday.
But it would be nice if the
cost of that enjoyment
could be kept under con-
trol. Skip the $4 lattes
and head for Buy the
Book, our newest Beaches
bookstore located at 1517
Atlantic Boulevard in
Neptune Beach. Bob
Drashin has brought us a
place to find really "nice"
used books as well as a
selection of new books at
prices that don't hurt at
Everything is 50 per-
cent off the publishers'
price, and each day of the
week has an extra dis-

count attached to one of
the genres so you save even more. For example,
today (Wednesday) if you visit Buy the Book,
you can take 75% off paperbacks and non-fic-
tion. Take the kids along tomorrow (Thursday)
and receive 75% off on children's books and
some fiction for yourself.
ChooChoo Van Wabbit the store's own black
rabbit, knows how to be quiet, but mothers
don't have to worry about their children. There
is a room with windows and comfortable little
Chairs where the young browsers can look at
their own books and even talk about what they
like. Parents can close the door and read to the
children without fear of disturbing other shop-
pers. Also located in that room are books on
women's issues and the Christian book section.
This is not Bob's first bookstore, but it is in the
place he loves the Beach. He is a member of a
synagogue in Ponte Vedra, and is proud to have
this location for his store at the Beaches. His two
other bookstores specialize in textbooks, one
serving UNF and FCCJ, and the other located in
the Coastal School of Law. Buy the Book is an
expansion of the concept he started with those
stores and is based on his experience in this
"We're heavy into business and Christian
books," he says. "Business men and women are
coming up today who have been getting advice
from friends or the internet" but not from
books. "Business books carry more authoritative
information. They have been written by experts
and carefully screened by publishers. They carry

good information from which people in business
can benefit."
"At our store, we have helpful books in man-
agement, business, advertising, entrepreneur-
ship and motivation. Many times business peo-
ple don't know what they may be doing wrong.
Books will tell you. You don't know what you
don't know!" When this wealth of help can be
available at affordable prices, it makes good busi-
ness sense to take advantage of the opportunity.
"Business success doesn't change that much,"
he says. Culture changes but the principals to
success are timeless. Some of the standard books
are still helpful because they spell out such
basics as "being civil, nice" as Bob sees it.
When you are shopping for a gift for a book-
lover, Buy the Book has some great ideas for you.
"We have a selection of new books, like James
Patterson," Bob says. You can select one of these
plus two other books, have them gift wrapped
and you are out the door with three gifts for an
amazing total of $10. There are other popular
fiction authors like Connelly, Kellerman or
Stephen King to match with friends' or family
names on your shopping list.
Buy the Book is open Monday through Sunday
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and credit cards are accept-
ed. Managers Gae Weber and Ed Tottman, both
Beaches residents, are there to assist you in your
book search or to provide reading gift sugges-
tions. It's not an outlet or a chain, but a wel-
come new local merchant for our Beaches com-

Serving the Beaches since 19~1
