JB fuel spill

closes road
A fuel spill closed a portion of Penman Road
for several hours Saturday ini Jacksonville Beach.
S'A Jacksonville Beach boater accidentally
pumped 100 gallons of fuel into the hull of his
26-foot Sailfish at the Chevron station in the
1,00 block of Penman Road. Firefighters
.responded to the service station around 3:30
p.m. where an additional 25 gallons of fuel was
dispensed on the ground after the bilge pump
had engaged, the boater told responding emer-
Sgency crews.
Motorists faced detours for six hours as
HazMat crews from Jacksonville Fire and Rescue
and Mayport worked to remove the hazardous
materials and the scene was finally cleared just
before 9:30 p.m. During the'cleanup, customers
were unable to access Terry's Country Store.
Firefighters established a "hot zone" and police
officers were in place to divert traffic.
A Mayport-based HazMat team responded
because the Jacksonville team was responding to
another call, but responders did not have the
proper equipment to load the fuel. The
Jacksonville HazMat team offloaded 50 gallons
of fuel. The boat was moved to another location
to continue cleanup efforts.

AB aims to curb Mayport Road woes by adding staff, code enforcement

New staff positions in Atlantic Beach
may be created specifically to address
the Mayport Road corridor, city officials
The City Commission determined
addressing crime and other problems
along Mayport Road is a top priority at
the city's strategic planning meetings
last week, according to City Manager
Jim Hanson.

Hiring more staff or reassigning cur-
rent staff duties are options that the city
will consider.
"[The Commission ] concluded that
we need to focus manpower on this,"
Hanson said.
The city may create one or two more
positions to work on projects related to
the Mayport Road corridor, but their
responsibilities have yet to be deter-
Current staff will also be involved in

various projects.
"We're talking about multiple people
working on these projects," said
Hanson. "We're anticipating a multi-
departmental approach."
Although policing is an important
aspect in alleviating crime in the area,
the city concluded that taking a broader
approach is necessary, Hanson said.
The city will also create a stakeholder's
group comprised of Navy officials, city
of Jacksonville officials, businesses and

The goal of the group will be to "find
a set of solutions that will improve the
Mayport Road corridor."
The city also plans on stepping up
code enforcement in the area, upgrading
some of the housing and forming part-
nerships with business groups.
"We would like to have a number of
solutions and direction within the next
two months. We intend to move quick-
ly on this," Hanson said.

Seven teams of two Rotarians
left Selva Marina Country Club
shortly after 8:30 a.m." Tuesday,
each headed for one of the
Beaches elementary schools.
Their mission: to deliver a dic-
tionary to every third grader, a
total of 675, at Atlantic .Beach,
Joseph Finegan, Jacksonville
Beach, Mayport, Neptune Beach,
San Pablo and Seabreeze elemen-
tary schools.
"This is an exciting project,"
said Judy Poppell, an Oceanside
Rotary board member who
chaired the club's dictionaries-to-
third-graders drive.
"Part of it is funded through a
district grant we received for this
purpose. We're joining other
Rotary Clubs throughout the city
of Jacksonville in this project.
There are other Rotary Clubs par-
ticipating; we're the only one dis-

tributing to Beaches schools."
Poppell said this was the first
year Oceanside Rotary, which
meets at Selva Marina every
Tuesday morning, had been able
to deliver to all Beaches schools.
"It's because of the grant that
we were allowed to do this," said
"In prior years we selected indi-
vidual schools to donate diction-
aries, but this year we're able to
reach all seven."
Joseph Finegan and Atlantic
Beach students received dictionar-
ies in 2006 and 2007.
"This is the third year we've
adopted this as part of our focus
on literacy," said Poppell, an edu-
cational consultant. "It's a great
project, a super project."
Reuel Flatt and David
MacInnies took the dictionaries to
Atlantic Beach Elementary, which
has four third-grade classes and 82
third graders.
An 11-year Rotarian, MacInnes
is Oceanside Rotary's incoming
president. He takes over July 1,
succeeding Don Dymer.

Here's how

this Towana

got her name
The story of how Ponte
Vedra Beach resident Towana
Parker-Hegan got her first
name goes back to the days
before she was born.
"Towana" is the name of a
movie character from a 1939
adaptation of a Zane Grey
book, "Wolf Call," Parker-
Hegan, 66, told a visitor
recently. The movie starred
John Carroll and Movita.
Towana,,an Indian princess
played by Movita, was a
favorite character of her moth-
er, she told the visitor.
Parker-Hegan has a tape of
the film, as well as copies of
the movie's posters, to under-
score that fact.

Angle's List

notes best

and worst

For the third year in a row,
home warranty companies have
earned the dubious distinction
as the most complained-about
service in 2007, according to
ratings from Angie's List, an
online list of contractors and
companies rated by consumers.
Thirty-eight percent of the
reports for home warranty com-
panies were "F" grades last year,
according to a news release
from Angle's List.

of more than 280 categories of

Teens may

lack sleep
This is National Sleep
Awareness Week. Do you know
how much sleep your teen is
Two critical factors collide
when teens are in their early
driving years, according to a
news release from Geico: They
need nearly 9.5 hours of sleep
every night, and they get an
average of 7.4 hours a night.
Also, teens' biological clocks
are set so that they fall asleep
later at night and wake up later
in the morning, a schedule that
may not fit with school hours.
It all points to a nation of
very sleepy teenagers, and teens
are known to have the highest
crash rates in the country.

Your teen may be sleep
deprived if he or she can't wake
up in the morning, is irritable
late in the day, falls asleep spon-
taneously during the day and

Every third grader gets a dictionary

MacInnes said it meant a lot to
him to deliver to Atlantic Beach.
"My wife was a third-grade
teacher at Atlantic Beach
Elementary," he said. "She retired
a year and a half ago. One of the
reasons I picked Atlantic Beach is
because I'm familiar with a lot of
the teachers there. Plus it's
around the corner from my
house. So it's a community
involvement and an opportunity
for our club to get these diction-
aries to the kids to use.
"They love them, they love the

project," he said.
Flatt, who joined the Rotary
Club 50 years ago last month, has
been a Rotarian in Florida,
Maryland and St. Simon's Island.
And he's a new Oceanside Rotary
member, having moved to Fleet
Landing last summer.
"This is one of the many activ-
ities Rotary Club does," said
Flatt. "Giving something back to
the community is one of our
objectives. It gives us a feeling of
accomplishment, that we can do
things like this for these kids,

other things that we do around
the world."
As a new member of
Oceanside, this was Flatt's first
opportunity to deliver to a
Beaches school.
"Third graders. Pretty soon
they're going to be out of ele-
mentary school and growing up.
I gave my kids, with them grow-
ing up, dictionaries, because I
thought it was very important,"
said Flatt.

Miss Jacksonville visits Fletcher Middle School


Miss Jacksonville 2008,
Laurie Snyder of Leesburg and
the University of Florida, has a
message she imparts to stu-
dents. And it's that message,
at least in part, that took her
to Fletcher Middle School Feb.
"I think it's important,"
Snyder said of her ongoing
appearances as Miss
Jacksonville, "because it
shows students you're trying
to be active in the communi-
ty. My whole message is defi-
nitely to get students
involved, to let them see
there's different role models
they can have outside the
family, [other people] they
can look up to. I know I've
had many people who weren't
in my family who inspired
and motivated me to be a suc-
cessful person. I'm hoping
maybe I can be that person to
Snyder is a junior majoring
in marketing at Florida. Her
talent is the piano, which
she's played since 5. And one
of her responsibilities, as Miss

Jacksonville, is to make fre-
quent appearances. She was at
Fletcher Middle to speak to
the Read 180 class.
"Every year the reading
teachers have readers they try
to motivate with speakers.
They always ask if Miss
Jacksonville can come out,"
said Claudia Harris, who
teaches gifted science at FMS
and is on the board of direc-
tors for the Miss Jacksonville
pageant, "because a lot of girls
look up to them. And the boys
enjoy seeing them and speak-
ing with them."
Harris said all Miss
Jacksonvilles have platforms,
and Snyder's is volunteerism.
"She's asking students to
become volunteers, but she
also speaks about students
making the right choices or
good choices," said Harris,
noting it gives Miss
Jacksonville an opportunity to
speak to students and students
a chance to ask them ques-
tions. She has to make a cer-
tain number of appearances,
so it benefits the students as
well as Laurie."
Heidi Hermansen, an FMS
reading teachers along with
Ginger Rohrbaugh, in whose

classroom the session was
held, said the school is doing
a program called Read 180
from Scholastic Magazine.
"At the end of each work-
shop is something called func-
tional literacy," said
Hermansen. "It might be how
to fill out a job application,
could be reading a public
notice. What we try to do is
show kids the practical side of
reading. We're also trying to
expose them to a variety of
experiences. When [Miss
Jacksonville] comes and talks
about volunteerism, that's a
chance for the kids to get,

from someone they admire, a
message about volunteerism.
And that way they can devel-
op future career skills."
Snyder's volunteerism cam-
paign is called STAR, for
Students Teaching And
Reaching [Out].
"It encourages and pro-
motes youth volunteerism in
a variety of projects," she said.
"It really focuses on a total
package of a student. They can
show they're well-rounded,
have integrity, insure they
keep up their grades and get
involved in their communities
and schools."

Yard in need of work draws TV crew


If your neighbors like you
but don't like the way your
property is landscaped, what
do you do? Cara and Tom
Doud, who live on Margaret
Street in Neptune Beach,
found a solution through the
DIY [Do It Yourself] Network's
Desperate Landscapes show.
Desperate Landscapes
showed up at the Doud home
early Friday morning to over-
haul the landscaping and give
the house a facelift through
some painting.
Part of the deal is the family
works with the TV crew. Tom
Doud, his father-in-law, Tom
Gibbon, and brother-in-law,
Travis Gibbon, participated, as
did the Douds' 9-year-old son
Asheton, who assisted in some
plantings. Also on hand was
Cara Doud's mother,
Catherine Quinn, who helped
with 11-month-old Waylon.
"It was real ugly before,"
said Tom Gibbon, "and now
it's going to be real pretty. It'll
be the nicest house on the
Cara Doud, an agent for
Lifestyles Realtors, explained
the re-do happened because
the family applied.
"They have a website you
can go to," she said of the
show. "We were' accepted. So
they've come to do a complete
overhaul of our front yard,
painting and planting shrubs
and trees."
The Douds applied in
October and were chosen in
"It's a one-day thing," said
Cara Doud.
The crew, which arrived at
7:15 a.m. Friday, had expected
to be finished around 6 p.m.
"We target neighborhoods
where the homeowners are
kind of the sore thumb on the
block," said Jay Shatz, execu-
tive producer of Desperate
Landscapes. "This is typical for
the Douds. The neighbors love
them but don't like their land-
scape. The neighbors have
done some gentle encourage-
ment and have contacted us to
help out. So that's the situa-
Shatz said the show gets
"hundreds of e-mails from
homeowners all across the

country. And their neighbors,
too. We always say you nomi-
nate yourself or your neigh-
The DIY crew was to redo
seven homes in Jacksonville
over the next couple weeks for
the television show.
"We've had great homes,
great neighbors, a lot of people
who really are passionate
about fixing up their land-
scape, learning how to do it
themselves. That's what the
show's all about," said Shatz.
"Our expert, Jason Cameron,
wants to teach people how not
just to put the landscape in
but also to help maintain it."
Shatz said the show does

the year.
"It's a beautiful neighbor-
hood," Shatz said of the 500
block of Margaret Street.
"Everybody's really encourag-
ing. We're anxious to get to
the end of the day, when we
can turn this from the sore
thumb to the best on the

Other appearances Snyder
has made include judging and

"I also helped out with the

she said, "and I implement my
platform weekly at Carver
Middle School in Leesburg."
The Miss Jacksonville pag-
eant was held Dec. 15. Miss
Florida will be the first week
of July, with the finals the
night of July 5.
"I'm very excited [about
that]," said Snyder. "I'm a
'newbie,' but I'm ready to give
it my all."
"Laurie Snyder is .a very
good selection," said Ruth
Sidbury, president and execu-
tive director of the
Jacksonville Starship
Foundation, which presents
the Miss Jacksonville pageant.
"She qualified for Jacksonville

counties, and Alachua County

FMS sixth-grader Ana
Arellano stopped by
Rohrbaugh's classroom to
meet Miss Jacksonville.
Arellano said she would like to
be Miss Jacksonville someday,
but since 17 is the minimum
age, she realizes she has a few
years to go.
Before Snyder's talk began,
Howie Pabsty shared with her
a picture of his sister, Liza,
printed in The Leader. Liza
Pabsty is among the 25 Miss
Fletcher candidates.
Among the frequent ques-
tions Snyder gets from stu-
dents is one about her crown.
"They ask me if I wear the
crown, to sleep sometimes.
And I don't. It's nice to have
the crown and banner. It gets
the students' attention. It's
almost like an aid in getting
your message across to them."

offers complimentary pro-
grams at Beaches libraries.
Karin Frosio, director of
HeartSong/Kindermusik, was
at the Beaches Branch Library
twice last week.
The library visits are an
extension of programs offered
at Hollie's Dancin' Dream in
Atlantic Beach and at Let's
Dance Studio in Ponte Vedra
"The goal of Kindermusik is
to bring music back into fami-
ly lives. One way we do that,"
said Frosio, "is by offering pri-
vate classes for families to
enroll in, 45 minutes once a
week with parents."
"Another way we offer that,"
she said, "is by doing free
demonstrations and story
times at libraries. That way we
reach another segment of the
community that might not be
familiar with the benefits of
music to the development of
the child."
Frosio said one of the chal-
lenges she faces going into the
community is regular classes
are limited to 12 children, but
community demonstrations
attract twice that size or more.
"Many of the parents have
never been in such a setting, so
I give them guidelines at the
beginning to relax them, and
just participate," Frosio said.
"Because the minute you tell
a toddler to do something, all
you hear is the big N-O. I tell
them just do the activities and
have fun.
Kindermusik International's
motto is "We're in the business
of changing the world one

"Studies have shown that-

ment, their social skills. All
that happens in one session."

This screening is designed to evaluate the
health of the leg veins and assess the risk of get-
ting blood clots in these veins. Dangerous
blood clots form in the leg veins of over 2.5 mil-

break loose and travel to the lungs, killing up to
200,000 Americans each year, according to the
American Venous Forum, a non-profit medical
society dedicated to venous health.
"We want to help raise awareness and to pro-

this screening. And it is free." The Beaches Vein
Center is a full-service vein center here at the
Beach with state-of-the-art treatment for veins.
As part of this nationwide service program,
Beaches Vein Center invites you to call and
make an appointment for your free screening on

/ L,

day for the free venous screening at Beaches Vein Center, 1205
Beach, to be held March 22.

The actual screening will include an examina-
tion of your legs to check for signs that the veins
are not working properly, explains Vining. This
includes varicose veins and other abnormalities
associated with venous insufficiency. You will
then receive a "reflux" ultrasound test which
looks at the function of the valves in the leg
veins. If the valves in your veins do not work
properly, it can result in problems in the leg.
The screening is performed by a team of nurses,
technologists and the doctor.
When your screening is complete you will
leave the office with valuable information on
your risk factors and, importantly, how to deal
with them. Educational material is available for
you. It is reassuring to know that, should you
need assistance or further medical treatment,
you can have that available to you right here at
Beaches Vein Center in Jacksonville Beach. You
do not have to go downtown.
"You will receive a Venous Report Card,"
Viffing says, "that will score your risk factor.
This venous report card can be taken to your pri-
mary care physician so that you can discuss pre-
ventative options with your medical doctor."
Call today for an appointment for your screen-
ing. Appointments will start at 9 a.m. and all
screening will be done at the Beaches Vein
Center at 1205 Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville
Beach. The number to call is 904-246-6724.

Oakley's goal lifts girls lacrosse to victory


Victoria Oakley's goal with
1:35 remaining broke open a
7-all tie and gave the Fletcher
girls lacrosse team an 8-7 vic-
tory overstanton Prep last
Friday night at Jack Taylor
In a back-and-forth contest
that saw six different lead
changes, the Senators staged a
fourth period rally to over-
come a pair of Blue Devils'
Senior Romy Sidelsky led
Fletcher with four goals.
Oakley added three and Katie
Mahay scored in the victory.
"I'm pretty sure Romy
passed it to me and I shot over
a girl's head and into the
upper right comer of the net,"
Oakley said in describing her
game-winning goal.
"They have a very good
goalie and she made some
stops on us throughout the
game. But we scored the one
when we needed to."
Oakley said the victory was
satisfying in light of a lopsided
loss to girls lacrosse power-
house Bartram Trail several
days earlier..
"This puts us back on the
right track," she said.
"It's so much fun playing
with our team this year. Last
year may have been more of a
learning experience, but this
year we really are like a family
with everyone getting along
and it's just a happy team."
The Sidelsky-Oakley combi-
nation emerged last season as
the Senators' most potent
offensive force and the duo
continues to rack up points
this year.
"We just have a good con-
nection," said Sidelsky. "Last
year we were kind of getting
our act together and now we
get to teach the new girls how
to play."
First-year Senators head
coach Jessica Muller is pleased
by the play of her veterans and
newcomers alike.
"We've gotten a lot of great
athletes from other sports like
soccer, and basketball and
when they're
natural athletes
you can teach
them lacrosse
very easily,"
said Muller,
who served as
Fletcher's assis-
tant head coach
last season.
"We've got a
lot of people
who picked it up just like that.
They've been very quick to
learn and everyone's very
enthusiastic to play. And once
they learn lacrosse, they're
like, 'I'm done with soccer, I'm
done with basketball, I'm fin-
ished with softball. I want to

Oakley scored the game-winning goal with about a minute and half to play as the Senators earned an 8-7 victory over the Blue Devils.

play lacrosse."'
Muller said the transition
from learning the game last
season to executing plays and
becoming more competitive
this year has been seamless.
"They've really progressed.
They're pretty
advanced," she
said in describ-
ing her players.
"They're one of
the best teams
in the league,
for sure. We've
got a lot of
tough competi-
tion but we're
definitely a
team to be reckoned with."
Muller said the future of
Senators girls lacrosse is in
good hands because the team
includes plenty of freshmen
and sophomores who are ben-
efitting form the leadership of
Sidelsky, Oakley, Margaret and

Ashley Szerba and others.
While Fletcher will lose a
handful of seniors after this
season, the coach hopes she is
establishing a good environ-
ment in which younger play-
ers can flourish and continue
to develop their skills.
"I do a lot to bond with the
girls and foster camaraderie,"
Muller said. "I'm all about pro-
moting them to support each
other as women and as team-
mates and being positive with
each other instead of being
rude or having a lot of drama
on the field.
"Hopefully that's something
that lends itself to making
players want to keep playing
and getting better."

Stanton 4, Fletcher 2
The Senators suffered their
-first loss of the season last
Friday night at Stanton Prep.

Fletcher scored a pair of runs
of four hits, including a double
by Ryan Mahoney.
Senators pitcher Michael
Johnson was tagged with the
loss as Fletcher surrendered
four runs on seven hits while
the defense committed a pair
of errors.
With the loss Fletcher
dropped to 6-1 on the season.

Sandalwood 3, Fletcher 2
Sandalwood scored a run in
the home half of the seventh
Monday night to break open a
2-2 ballgame and emerge with
a victory.
The Senators out-hit the
Saints, 6-5, including a double
by sophomore Katie
The loss dropped Fletcher to
6-3 on the season.

St. Augustine 14, Nease 3

Things haven't been run-
ning so smoothly for the
Nease High School softball
team lately.
Between having, to resched-
ule games because of bad
weather to numerous players
fighting colds, the Panthers
have been having a little trou-
ble on the softball diamond.
That trouble hit a low point
last Friday when Nease (4-3, 3-
2 District 5-4A) struggled to
stay in the game against dis-
trict rival St. Augustine High
School (6-4, 3-2), losing 14-3
in just five innings of play.
"We got down early,"
Panthers head coach Gordie
Rolison said following the loss.
"I'm not going to make any
excuses, but we haven't played
in nearly two weeks and every-
one's been fighting the flu.
"I had my 10th grader in
there tonight and she's not
feeling well. My main starter

ing well. We just got down

couple of runs, bringing the

Former Jaguar Stroud seeks fresh start in Buffalo

Page 3B

Consider it the strange
ballad of Marcus Stroud,
who was traded from the
Jaguars to the Buffalo Bills last
The former University of
Georgia star was everything the
Jacksonville Jaguars expected
when he was selected in the
first round of the 2001 NFL
Draft. And for five years he was
practically unstoppable, wrack-
ing up records in tackles and
The 6-foot, 6-inch, 310-
pound Stroud and fellow
Jaguars defensive line mate
John Henderson (6'7", 335
ponds) formed the core of Jack
Del Rio's awesome defense.
They were about the most
feared tackles in the NFL.
Then, two years ago, Stroud
began getting injured. The
problem with his ankle was the
worst one. Ankle surgery in
2006 was just the start.
A bigger problem occurred in
November of 2007 when
Stroud drew a four-game sus-
pension for violating the
league's steroid policy.
Things came to a head last
season when Stroud played
only two quarters of the Jaguars
final 10 games that included
two postseason games. It was
probably his last stand.
The massive defensive tackle
played in nine games on the


s. -:..-:.


season and finished with 22
tackles (19 solo and three
sacks) while missing five games
because of the ankle.
Although some might think
Stroud's request for a trade
from the Jaguars was surpris-
ing, the wear and tear on his
29-year-old body was obvious.
Marcus had strangely been
unhappy here for two years.
The suspension didn't help.
For the last year he has not
been the Marcus Stroud we
used to know. One didn't find
him joking and kidding in the
locker room.
Strangely, the more success-
ful the three-time Pro Bowl
player became, the more sullen
he acted.

In 2005, Stroud inked a
$31.5 million contract as the
Jaguars showed appreciation
for his past performances.
Now, Stroud says a new start
is what he needs and maybe
relocating to Buffalo will give
him that.
He'll arrive in upstate New
York with a career total of 22
sacks and 457 tackles per-
haps just the tonic the Bills
need for their ailing defense.
He'll leave his old pal
Henderson here in Jacksonville
to pick up the slack at defen-
sive tackle. To fill Stroud's
vacancy, the Jaguars will rely
upon veteran Rob Meier, who
started nine games last season.
Stroud also leaves a goal for
other players to try to match:
Three Pro Bowl appearances
and six years of league-wide
respect for his abilities.
Off the field, Marcus has
been known for his devotion
to family. He paid for his
mother, Thelma McDonald, to
attend nursing school and he
bought her a home. Stroud's
participation in numerous
charity events, supported by
fellow Jaguars and other play-
ers, made him well-known
throughout the greater
Jacksonville community.
The saddest thing about
Stroud's departure from
Jacksonville is remembering his
brilliance before injuries took

Marcellus Wiley in 2006. Stroud was traded to the Buffalo Bills for a pair of draft picks last week.

their toll. He was credited with
being a leader in the locker
room as well as on the field.

It will take a great deal of tal-
ent to replace the massive for-
mer Bulldog, a man regarded as

a local star as well as one of the
most feared defensive lineman
in the NFL.

Kayak Fishing Classic, the world's
largest kayak fishing tournament,
will take place May 2-3. The
event promotes kayak fishing in
Jacksonville with a conservation-
oriented format and raises funds
for children's programs through
