Adding red light cameras to a
busy Neptune Beach intersec-
tion is being eyed pending the
passage of Jacksonville legisla-
tion on which the city could
S"We've looked into it," said
Neptune Beach City Manager
Jim Jarboe. "It depends~ on
whether the state will allow it."
.If permissible, the city may
consider ~installing cameras at
the five-way intersection on
Penman Road, where Florida

The cameras are aimed at
reducing the number of people
who run red lights by taking a
picture of a license plate when a
driver runs a red light. A cita-
tion is then sent to the violator
via mail.
-Currently, state statutes do
not allow the cameras as an offi-
cer must witness the offense.
But the city of Jacksonville
has looked into an ordinance
that would allow unattended
cameras, and Neptune Beach
may be able to "piggyback" on
the legislation, according to
Both Jarboe and Police Chief
Dandde Seba s edathatwi i

install the cameras, even if
Jacksonville's bill passed.
"Right now, we're just explor-
ing it," Jarboe said.
The cameras would not cost
the city any money to install or
maintain, according to officials.
A private company, which
would receive a percentage of
the fines, would be hired and
assume responsibility.
Although there are few acci-
dents at the intersection,
Sembach said that it is a
"strange" intersection because
of the way it is composed.
In other areas that have
implemented the cameras, there
was only a small reduction in
injuries cited, according to a fed-
eral study.
A recent report by MSNBC
said .that some communities
with the red light cameras are
removing them as they have led
to legal challenges that a private
agency may not have policing
authority. There have also been
concerns that: as drivers become
aware of the lights, there is little
ticket revenue to support opera-
tions as violations are infre-
quent. Also, in some areas acci-

Gambling affects more teens every day since
the legal gambling age is 18. Young people
often bet on cards, sports, car racing, games of
skill, dice and Internet poker. The Florida
Council on Compulsive Gambling estimates
that 70 percent of Florida teens, ages 13-17,
have gambled during their lifetime and more
than half report doing it in the past year.
Teenagers are twice as likely as adult gain-
blers to suffer from serious to severe gambling
problems. And teens with gambling problems
are also more likely to use drugs or exhibit
Other anti-social behaviors such as skipping,
stealing, fighting or bringing a gun to school.
Research has also shown that teens who gam-
ble are also more likely to engage in drugs and
drinking activitieS.

Sunny weather kicked off the 18th annual George's Music
Springing the Blues festival Friday at the Seawalk Pavilion but
organiizera said the. bad weather that followed did little to damp-
en spirits ,! J~acksonville Beach.

Two days of rain did little to
dampen the spirits of blues
fans who braved wet condi-
tions to soak in the music at
last weekend's George's Music
Springing the Blues Festival in
Jacksonville Beach,
Sam Veal, executive director
and founder of the three-day
blues festival, said Tuesday
that the failifall on Saturday
and Sunday trimmed the
crowds down to diehard fans
who didn't let the weather stop
the show.
"What it did was cull the
herd of people who came out
just because it was a free event
and not necessarily blues
lovers," he said.
"As a result, the ones that
were here were enthusiastic
blues lovers. They all came pre-
pared and checked the weath-
er. They knew this is a rain or
shine event so they sat out in
their rain gear and enjoyed the
Veal said this was the first
time in 18 years that the festi-
val organizers had dealt with
such a significant rainfall.
Despite the conditions, he said

lightning caused only minor
delays on Saturday and some
of the equipment was "still a
little damp."
"The only way ,we would
ever shut down is if there were
a tornado or a hurricane about
to hit," he said Tuesday.
Festival volunteers tracked
the storm's progress and Veal
said he called in for regular
weather updates. At one point,
he said some of the storm cells
cutting across the state packed
heavy rains and up to 75 mph
"Mother -Nature is Mother
Nature. That is why we always
hope for the best and plan for
the worst. On Saturday
evening we were watching the
radar and we started saying
'okay, we need to keep a close
eye on this thing and if it gets
any closer we need to
announce to people that they
need to seek shelter," Veal said.
"We kept a sharp eye on it
and 10 and behold, it dissipated
and we got a little rain without
any of the winds."

"When I was elected in 2004,
Jacksonville Beach was sharply

new grill rules

Barbecue grills and ornamen-

with multiple residences will
soon require the approval of
the city's fire marshal for use in
Jacksonville Beach.
The City Council Monday
voted in favor of proposed
changes that will bring the

state fire regulations.
Fire Chief Gary Frazier said
in his staff recommendation
that the changes are related to
gas, barbecue grills and similar
devices on balconies of homes
with more than two units.
According to the changes,
"no hibachi, gas-fire grill or
charcoal grill or similar device
used for cooking, heating or
other purpose shall be used to
kindle on any balcony or over-
hanging portion or within 10
feet of any structure."
The amended ordinance
does allows the use of' specific
cooking equipment using
piped natural gas with prior
approval by the fire marshal.

doned, but the city has held off on issuing
citations while the owners were waiting for the
development order, according to Fire Marshal
John Webber.
"They've always complied with everything
we've asked," he said.
There have also been some problems with
transients entering the building, Webber said.
But, after a conversation with one of the
property owners Tuesday, Webber said he
expects them to renew their demolition permit
within the next few days.
However, he emphasized that nothing has
been filed yet, so there is no definitive infor-
McClain said in a phone interview Tuesday
that the project dates will probably be firmed
up at the end of the week.
"T'his has been about a year-long process.
We want to begin," he said.
The development order is valid for one year
as of Monday, according to Community
Development Director Amanda Askew.
"We look forward to bigger and better things
down there at Penman Plaza," said Mayor Dick
Brown at Monday's meeting.

A project to revamp a major Neptune Beach
shopping center is anticipated to start soon.
The Neptune Beach City Council Monday
approved a development order along with sev-
eral variances for Penman Plaza, Ltd. The for~
mer Neptune Theater will be demolished and
approximately 46,500 square feet of office and
retail space will replace it at the southwest cor-
ner of Penman Road and Atlantic Boulevard.
Although a definitive timeline for the project
is not available until a meeting can be sched-
uled with the owners, Tiin McClain of Flagler
Properties and one of the owners representa-
tives, Tuesday said "we definitely want to move
forward as quickly as possible."
The Neptune Theater building is expected to

A start-up children's museum wants your ideas
and has scheduled a "brainstorming" session in
Ponte Vedra Beach Tuesday.
The meeting begins at noon at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library, where guests can learn
about plans for the Children's Museum of St.
"It's a chance for us to present the vision and
concept behind the museum and lay out a pro-
posed timetable for making it all happen," said
Jennifer Koppman,a board member of the chil-
dren's museum.
"But, it's also a chance to brainstorm and invite
ideas and feedback from the public."
The meeting is one of several being held around
the county by organizers of the museum, which
got its start last year at a child's~birthday party.
Wendy Philcox, museum vice president, and
Kathy Wjeed were at the party with their children
and began talking about the children's museum in
Charleston, S.C., which opened in 2003.
Weed is originally from Charleston, and P~hilcox
has family and frierids there.
"It's so funny how a chance meeting can make
all the difference," Philcox said. "The Children's
Museum of the Low Country is just wonderful,
and we said how we wished we had something

like this, how we need something like this in St.
Johns~ County."
The two moms started writing letters to city
council members and researching what it would
take to open a children's museum. Preschool
teachers Jenni Jackson and Kathy Marquis and
another mom, Susan Connor, who has experience
in fund-raising, joined their commitment to
bringing the museum to the area.
"What really makes a children's museum tick is
when children are learning while they're having
fun," Philcox said.
"Self-paced, self-learning is sort of a grassroots
movement to have these kinds of unstructured
learning in an informal setting. Many of the chil-
dren's museums around the country are hands-on
and are unique to their community. We hope it
will be a great resource for fanulies.''
Philcox said it is hoped the museum will be
located within an eight-mile radius of downtown
St. Augustine.
"We are still in the early stages but we are about
to go into high gear in terms of getting a site
nailed down," Philcox said. "We are looking at
some specific possibilities and we are hoping we
can get something donated, either a building or
land. The State of Florida Division of Curltural
Affairs is about to lose some major funding so we
realize it's going to depend on private donors
and foundations."

"I guess it kind of helped'
everybody out. Obviously it's
going to have that effect
because- that's what it is," Veal
said. "It was a double edge
sword. All of the businesses that
I've talked to said "sorry for
your bad luck Sam but it was
great for us'."
Management at the Best
Western at 305 1st Street North
said the hotel was at capacity
Friday and Saturday and experi-
enced no cancellations because
of the weather.
At Campeche Bay Cantina,
located within the festival
boundaries at 127 1st Avenue
North, co owner Vince Maguire
said sales were down by about
20 percent but business was still
"better than we expected."
"I just wish I had more of a
staff on. The crowds are usually
out in the sun until about 4 or
5 p.m. then they come in here
to eat," he said.
"When they did come, we did
what we could. After it rained
five inches in 10 minutes, they
were not clamoring for drinks
or food. They just wanted to get
dry. But overall it was not too
Maguire called Springing the
Blues "the best festival we have"
and said he "would always
stand behind that one." The
weather, he said, is "just the
way it goes."
According to preliminary fig-
ures, Veal said the keg count for
this year's event was only off by
approximately 31 compared to
the 2007 festival numbers. A
total of 140 kegs of beer were
served last year.
"That's a lot of beer," he said.
Veal said even though organ-
izers are prudent with the festi-
val's "design, efforts and budg-
et," the money pot for the 19th

annual event will feel the pinch
of this year's bad weather.
"Even if we never sold the
first Coke or beer, we will be
okay. We are not going to suffer
from it but the belt is going to a
whole lot tighter for next year,"
he said.
"We have money set aside in
reserve for operation. Next year
that reserve is going to be
depleted. So we will just have to
double up on our resources."
Jacksonvilrle Beach Police Sgt.
Thomas Bingham Thursday
said from a security standpoint,
the rain washed out the unde-
sirable elements associated with
such large crowds.
Bingham said there were no
significant incidents reported
involving public drunkenness,
traffic congestion or other dis-
SHe said the number of officers
assigned to patrol the festival
area was reduced when the
weather "got bad and stayed
bad. "
"We went with our original
game plan but once the weath-
er turned we drew back a bit,"
he said.
Veal said the festival patrons
and artists alike were "fantastic,
noting that the performers were
given the option to play or can-
cel in light of the weather.'
"They get paid anyway. But
they are artists and they said,
'hey, we came to play some
blues'," he said. "[Alligator
Records artist Michael] Burks
offered to come back and play
for free on Sunday."
"You get to see who the real
fans are. There are those who
leave at the first sign of a dark
cloud. Then there are those that
leave at the first sprinkle and
those who leave when the rain
really starts falling," Veal said.
"Then there are those who
hunker down and say "I ain't
leaving for nothing.' They hun-
ker down and enjoy the music."

To the editor: .
I wish to speak for many in
attendance at the Sunday,
thakh 30, O;:open hdu e of the
'Miiytf- Cliniic. I can't count the
times I told people in charge
that this open house to the
community went beyond
what I would ever had
I expected cheese and
punch, but to my amazement
there were many varieties of
cheese, breads, spinach/arti-
choke .dips phi~s others.
Vincent was so nice and rec-
ommended the excellent
ranch dip. Desserts abounded.
The brownies were out of this
world. They even had sushi.
And now to the occasion -
to show off the new hospital
which they did. Every person

working there had a sincere
smile and gave helpful
answers to every question.
I've never se81` such a big
operating roojm lanId s told
all 14 of them are that big.
The pre op and post op rooms
are very open, not confining.
The 21 treatment rooms for
the ER are also large and very
relaxing. Everything was how
I would want if I was in need
of surgery or an ER visit.
Thank you Mayo Clinic for
myself and everyone else who
attended for such a wonderful
open house. Those of you
who didn't go, you missed a
good one. You should have
been there.

To the editor:
Mayport Road Design flaws
gnd tax money wasted!
I have lived off Mayport
Road for 27 years and seen
many changes. Some were
good and others not. I saw it
grow from two lanes to four
and then five (center turn
lane). Then, we got sidewalks
which were desperately need-
ed for years but came only
after many pedestrian inci-
dents. Later, we got traffic
lights and they made sense
(except the Buccaneer Trail
intersection which changes
regardless of traffic flow).
Now, we are getting some-
thing that we do not need!
Plus, it will probably be obso-
lete or need to be~ changed
again by the time it is fin-
ished. I am talking about the
Mayport Road Median. If the
barricades and barrels are any
indication of the design, it will
be a disaster for those of us
who live and travel the road
daily. The turn lanes will NOT
be long enough for the

amount of drivers making
turns. Another thing is that
access from roads not at desig-
nated intersections will
require drivers to make U-
turns (if they are allowed).
Already, I see drivers getting
frustrated and hitting the bar-
rels. I can only imagine what
it will be like when the medi-
ans arrive.
I do not remember anly pub-
lic hearings on this project
and wonder who performed
the traffic study (if there was
one) and how much time was
spent on it. Did they consider
boat and tractor trailer usage?
Did they consider the cycle of
Navy deployments? Were
there actual vehicle usage sta-
tistics to justify the need for
these medians or did someone
want the road to "look pretty"
despite traffic safety?
I see problems at the
Atlantic Beach Post Office,
Plaza Drive, and Navy
Commissary, Assisi Lane, A1A
and Wonderwood Road inter-
I believe this project is a

waste of tax dollars (which are
scarce now) and will require
more wasted money when the
cities discover they made a
mistake. Their error will be
that the road will require a
redesign when they realize the
havoc made by the medians
and decide to change back to
something that works! Forget
about what is aesthetically
pleasing to the eye. Be practi-
cal and do something right
(for a change).
If Atlantic Beach wants to
beautify their section of the
road, then by all means do it.
liut Jacksonville should recon-,
sider and not waste the
money and go along with
what appears to be a very bad
idea. I see too many flaws and
good money will be spent
after bad when it is all done.

Mike Wydra
P.S. I live in Jacksonville but
was given an Atlantic Beach
mailing address for the post
office on Mayport Road.

The Leader's Opinion

TFime for Jax Beach

to be full post office

Jacksonville Beach City Councilors are angry they can't
seem to get a straight answer from postal authorities about
where a post office will' be located after 2009, when the cur-
rent lease expires on church-owned land at 7th Avenue
Oh, the city officials have tried. They have wailed and lit-
erally gnashed their teeth over their collective inability to
pin North Florida postal officials down on where the
Jacksonville Beach branch will be located.
Maybe they should pursue another path one that has
already quietly been suggested to the city by a Jacksonville
Beach resident who was once in charge of the facilities pro-
gram for the North Florida Postal District.
Postal retiree Howard Shumate suggested, in a February
letter to Jacksonville Beach's City Manager, that city offi-
cials solicit U.S. Congressmen to get Jacksonville Beach
established as a post office, instead of being a branch of the
Jacksonville Post Office.
This way, Jatksonville Beach would be assigned a post-
master instead of the postmaster in Jacksonville being
responsible for the Beach. Atlantic Beach could then be
made a branch of the Jacksonville Beach Post Office and the
:ntrewo ldB c scure dfor prae n o ota f le t U n
Jacksonville Beach is independent of Jacksonville and cer-
tainly there are many arguments to be made for creating a
separate post office and postmaster in the city.
The change would help preserve the Beaches' separate
identity. More importantly, establishing a separate post
office at Jacksonville Beach would preserve local postal serv-
ices in the future. Postmasters rank higher than station
managers in the post office world and that means more
clout which can matter when decisions of import are
being made.
We believe that some political muscle and expertise
would probably be required to effect such a change on the -
federal leveL. Jacksonville Beach city officials, who are clear-
ly still angry about the recent lack of communication and
cooperation, should be able t~o muster the will to enlist the
support of congressmen in the matter.
Ponte Vedra Beach has its owvn post office and postmaster.
Jacksonville Beach should have the same.
City officials have the chance here to do more than com-
plain and threaten that postal authorities should take a fly-
ing leap. Indeed, the city can- and should leap at the
opportunity to secure a postal presence for the commercial
hub and population center of the Beaches.

Leonard Blanchart is a retired
Merchant Marine captain and
river boat pilot. His career suc-

financial stock market invest-

students who lacked the
resources to attend college. In
1989, the Jacksonville couple
established a scholarship
endowment at UNF for stu-

Bishop Kenny High School.
The scholarship endowment
was the first such endowment

added to the fund and have
taken advantage of the state
matching gift program. With
the couple's recent gift, the
value of their scholarship
endowment has reached
$2.25 million. Five high
schools were added this year,

News Desk
Tax season is one of the most
stressful times of the year. And a
University of Florida eirpert cau-
tions against making common
mistakes that can 'complicate
matters. '
So Michael Gutter, an assis-
tant~professor in family finan-
cial management with UF's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, has com-
pried a list of A~mericans' tcifi 10
Etax-season gaffes.
1. Not making use of VITA
(Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance) sites. If your taxes
aren't terribly complicated-you
don't own a b~isiness or have a
lot of ~investment income to
report-then VITA is an under-
used resource worth checking
"It's a free service, done by
people who literally work with
tax code day in and day out."
Check with the Florida
Prosperity Campaign,
to find your closest VITA site.
2. Not keeping organized
records and missing deductions
or credits you deserve.
Gutter said taxpayers should
keep in mind that the tax code
is designed to promote and
encourage good-citizen type
behavior: Getting an education,
taking care of your children,
buying a home, giving to chari-
ty, etc.

financial emergency, tax refund

Gutter said. The loans are simi-

So until April 15, 2008, you can
contribute to your IRA for tax
year 2007.
9. Delaying filing a return
without a good reason. .
This just leaves your refund mn
the government's hands when it
could be accruing interest for
you, Gutter said. There are some
instances where it might make
sense to sit on one's tax return
until the last minute-such as
waiting to pay Uncle Sam if you
still owe taxes.
10. Breaking the law by lying (
on your taxes or not filing a t
return at all. "We always tell
people, even if you owe the IRS
money, work on it-you're not
going to get away with this for
very long," he said. "And if you
don't know how to file your
taxes, get some help. But not fil-
ing is not in your best interest."

tage of it, you're really giving

3. Not using your kids to your
best (tax-saving) advantage. If
you have children, Gutter said, a
number of tax credits might be
relevant for yTou. If you have col-
lege-age offspring, there are
even more. ,
SGo to www.irs.gov and search
"education tax credit."
4. Noct fbalizngR that if you're
struggling financiallyp yiu
might be eligible for the Earned
Income Tax Credit, a credit for
low-income workers. Even if
your income isn't high enough
to require a tax return, you can
still get the credit.
Go to www.irs.gov and type
"Earned Income Tax Credit" in
the search box.
5. Spending your tax-refund
windfall instead of filling out
IRS Form 8888. The 2-year-old
form can be used to automati-
cally funnel your tax refund

as a savings account or an IRA or

"Water is where you have been
called to serve, and water is where you
will be tested."
From "The Guardian."


Sw~~~limmngi fundamental skill
So for the better part of three
hours on Stinday, sixr recruits wvith
the American Red Cross Volunteer
Life Saving Corps tested their water
skills in a variety of ways at the
University of North Florida Aquatic
Center. .
They swam laps, practiced rescu-
ing a submerged victim' in the deep
end and took turns pushing a 5-
pound rubber brick under water,
simulating a scene from "The
Guardian," a 2007 film about U.S.
Coast Guard rescue swimmers.
"I love that movie," 18-year-old
recruit Monica Ruggiero said before
taking part in the oxygen deprava-
tion exercise, where recruits paired
up to push bricks along the~pool
Only one recruit at a time could
surface to catch his or her breath. If
both surfaced, both failed.
"The reward for winning this drill
is a special mention at Tuesday's
meeting," lead instructor Rick Foster
told the remaining members of the
Corps' 2008 winter recruit class,
which began with 35 souls, but has
been whittled down to six.
Along with Ruggiero, a waitress at
Bukkets in Jacksonville Beach, the
class includes 2007 Fletcher High
grad Eric Bohn, an aspiring firefight-

Seafood staple ofMenorcan cooking




Retired Corps member David Streans of Ponte Vedra Beach speaks with winter recruits before a recent training day at the Jacksonville Beach lifeguard station.

Recruits test their mettle in water

pool with their hands. .
"1, 2, 3, sweep," says Ruggiero as
she and her cohorts dive down to
locate a black rubber brick.
Later, the recruits tread water in
the deep end holding the brick over
their heads for 60-second intervals.
"That's a lot harder than it looks,"
Ruggiero, the daughter of a former
Olympic-caliber swimmer, exclaims.

jumps from the high dive, simulat-

Foster said.
The recruits finished the first half
of their training day performing a
basic lifesaving skill: one-arm car-
Justice, a 23-year-old Army ser-
geant who served as a flight medic
.with the 111th Aviation Regiment
last year in Iraq and Afghanistan,
underscored the importance of peri-
odic pool testing.
"We do these drills to save your
life, a victim's life and to earn the
respect of the public," said Justice,
who was honored for her military
service by Gov. Charlie Crist, during
the March 8 State of the State
Address at the Florida Capitol. .
SEmahiser, who joined the Corps as
a recruit in the summer of 1994
after serving five years in the Navy,
said the final pool test for the win-
ter recruit class will resemble what
he endured in SAR school in San
"It will be very similar," Emahiser

er, and four high school students,
Kaity Morris of Providence,.
Catherine Woodcock of Nease,
Walley Meskel of Stanton Prep and
Anthony Delossantos of Paxon
School for Advanced Studies.
Sunday marked the ninth week of
recruit training and the first of sev-
eral pool tests before graduation day
on April 27.
TIhey opened the clay swimming

lowed by 100-yarders on two min-
utes with a 20-second rest.
Morris, a former water polo player
from South Africa, swan the 100's in
under 80 seconds.
"Now we're going to swim 20
more 50's on 50 seconds," said
Foster from the pool deck, "but for
every question you answer correctly,
I'll knock off a 50."
"Morris. Which flag flies on the
northside of the peg?" Foster asked.
"The American flag, sir," Morris
"Good. Now you owe me 18."
At one point, Foster added anoth-
er 50 because a recruit was late hit-
ting the wall.
"That was 51seconds..That one
doesn't count," said Foster, a 12-
year veteran of the Corps..

'After the Q&TA laps, the recruits
were ordered to swim 200 yards in
under four minutes. All six clocked
in around three minutes, led by
Morris at 2:34.
Next up, the recruits practiced
mock rescues in the deep end with
Foster and veteran Corps members
Allison J~ustice and Rob Emahiser

serving as victims.
Justice, a flight medic with the
Florida Army National Guard, and
Emahiser, a former Navy search and
rescue swimmer, were not there to
provide moral support.
There job was to bb~ as combative
as possible.
"The object in this pool test is to
get the victim to the side," Foster
told the recruits lined up on the Iw::
pool deck with ciralige fojrpedo
buoys in hand.
"On active/unassisted rescues, the
victim will try to take the buoy and
wear you out."
Emahiser, who spent two years as
a SAR swimmer on a Navy cruiser,
was such a difficult victim that at
one point a male recruit had to
abort his rescue.
"Everything you do should be
nice and relaxed," assistant instruc-
tor Demian Lewis told the recruits,
"because if you panic, the victim
will panic."
Recruits are schooled in dry-land
techniques to brake the frantic grips
of panicked victims, along with spe-
cial holds.
They also utilize their ubiquitous
buoys to tow victims to shore.
"Nice grip, Santos," Foster telfs a
recruit, who exits the pool with his
chest heaving from the arduous
"Let's talk about Code X."
'In a drill designed to search and
rescue a submerged victim, recruits

"Menorcan Family
The cookbook' is about 10
years old and includes
recipes collected by the
Menorcan d'ultural Society in
St. Augustine.
The Menorcans (sometimes
spelled Minor'cans) are the
descendants of early Florida
colonists who primarily
came from the island of
Menorca off the coast of
Spain but also came from
Greece, Italy, France, and
Corsica. They arrived in
Florida in 1768.
After working as contract
laborers under harsh condi-
tions at an indigo plantation
in New Smyrna, in 1777 the
Menorcans were given per-
mission to leave the planta-
They traveled on foot to
St. Augustine where they and
their families settled and
many of their descendants
still live, said Carol Lopez
Bradshaw, a descendant of

pepper, said Lopez Bradshaw.
Some claim that the
Menorcans brought it with
them to Florida or that the
pepper is a hybrid of other
types of peppers which the
Menorcans grew after arriv-
ing in Florida.
What is generally accepted
is that it has a unique hot
and flavorful taste and it
"grows best in St.
Sauces, jellies, and relishes
made with Datil peppers
accompany seafood and
other dishes. Whole datil
peppers are also ingredients
in many Menorcan dishes
such as Shrimp Pilou or
Clam Chowder.
Tomato-based Menorcan
Clam Chowder is frequently
found on the menu at local
restaurants, said Lopez
Bradshaw. Pilau is main
course with rice that is often
made with shrimp but can
also be made with chicken or

tries made the night before

Many of these recipes were
part of "every day life" for
the Menorcans, some had
never been written down
before and had been passed
down through the families,
said Lopez Bradshw.
Seafood was an important
part of the diet of the
Menorcan families. Local
fish and other seafood was
plentiful in St. Augustine as
it probably had been on the
island of Menorca, she said.
Mullet, considered by
some as "trash fish," was
prized by the Menorcan fam-
When they heard the call
of "mullet on the beach,"
Lopez Bradshaw's parents
and siblings (and other
Menorcan families) spent
many June evenings on the
beach catching the fish.
After the fish were cleaned,
the women fried them over
Open fires and served them
with grits, she said.
The Menorcans are also
well known for the use of
datil peppers in their cook-
ing. No one knows with cer-
tainty the origin of the datil

the Menorcans and
President of the Menorcan
Cultural Society.
Lopez Bradshaw grew up
in St. Augustine and lives
there in a house built by her
great~ grandparents in 1878.
The history of the
Menorcans is the American
story of people leaving their
home country to build a bet-
ter life in what was to
become the United States.
The descendants of the
original Menorcans number
around 15,000 in the St.
Augustine area, she said. .
In the 1980s the Menorcan
Cultural Society was formed
to preserve the history and
culture of the Menorcans.
"Menorcan Family
Favorites" contains recipes
brought by the Menorcans
from their European home
and recipes that made use of
what was available or could

The "Menorcan Family Favorites" Cookbook is one of the ways
Carol Lopez Bradshaw and the membership of the Menorcan

Lopez, who was a member of the Rogero family.

Dreams come

true for kids

No doubt one of the
saddest sights in
humanity is a child
who will likely die young.
In 1991, I was on a cruise
in Russia and Ukraine on the
Dnieper River.
Along with our group of
U.S. travel agents, there were
Soviet firemen who had
foiglht the flames in the
infamous 1986 Chernobyl
nuclear power plant disaster,
which may have caused
thousands of cancer deaths
and birth defects.
These people and their
families were awarded a free
cruise as compensation by

the radiation they had suf-
*Who knows what kind of
sweet dreams those kids had
or if they even knew clearly
what had happened to Ithem?
But we knew, so we weren't
very happy cruisers.
I thought of that situation
after I was reminded recently
of a Jacksonville organization
devoted to granting th'e
dreams of children living or
being, treated for a life-
threatening illness. It's called
"Dreams Come True."
The charity has been oper-
ating for 24 years, fulfilling
the yearned-for wishes of
over 2,200 sick youngsters.
The Dreams Come True
leadership is a veritable all-
star team of Jacksonville-area
The desires met b~y the pro-
grams indicate that deter-
mined, imaginative effort is
exercised to convert the kids'
dreams to reality.
On my Soviet river cruise,
pale, obviously unwell kids
tried to amuse themselves.
However, without a swim-
ming pool or fun-10.ving,
Disney-type cartoons charac-
ters or kids'activities found
on American cruise ships,
the juvenile amusement
opportunities were extremely
Thanks to organizations
such as Dreams Come True,
the U.S.A. must certainly be
a better place for a child
even to have a life-threaten-
ing illness.

The Senators were able to
take advantage early against
Stanton racking up 10 hits
and scoring nine runs in the
weather-delayed first inning.
Fletcher's Trevor Adeeb
opened the
game with a
single. Ryan
Mahoney fol-
lowed with a

Franklin drove

on the following at-bat. Sean
Brown and Houston Brown
followed Franklin with hits,
loading the bases. After James
Dillon went down on strikes
for the inning's first out, Nick
Reedy belted a shot to right,
scoring both Johnny Williams,

who was running for Franklin,
and Sean Brown.
Tanner Gregg then followed
with another single, Fletcher's
seventh hit in its first eight
batters, loading the bases for
Will Campbell.

The Blue Devils got on
board in the bottom of the

and Stanton's lone score of
the game.
After a quiet third inning,

Fletcher also defeated
Stanton in the season-opening
Bakers Sports Tournament
played at First Coast High
uThis, and the Bakers tour-
nament we did at the begin-
ning of the season, really help
with the district and the con-
ference," Kevin Brown said.


If the Fletcher High School
baseball team could meet
Stanton Prep in the state
championship game, chances
are the Senators would have
loads of confidence.
For the second time this sea-
son, Fletcher (13-6, 3-3
District 1-6A) defeated the
Blue Devils in a championship
game, this time a dominating
16-1 win in the All-American
Spring Tournament played at
Mandarin High School. .
"He had run out of pitch-
ing," Fletcher head coach
Kevin Brown said, referring to
Stanton head coach Joel
Davis' line-up. "That's what
these tournaments do, that's
why we play in them'. He had
to pitch a bunch of guys to
get here. He had to throw his
centerfielder today."

Senators first baseman James Dillon scoops up a ground ball in the championship game of the
AII-American Spring Tournament last Thursday. Fletcher won the title with a 16-1 victory over
Stanton Prep in a game played at Mandarin High.

pitchers," Brown said. "I've
seen guys go up there and not
have the focus and whiff,
whiff, wrhiff.
"But our guys went up; there
and started tagging."lt was
everybody, it wasn't one guy.
That's what happens. They've
(Stanton) got a good team,
they were just down to the
bottom of the barrel and that's
what happens to you."
Fletcher heads into its final
regular-season games this
week both against distrct
opponent Orange Park High
School, and both, according to
Brown, must-win games.
If Fletcher sweeps the
Raiders this week, it will be in
a three-way tie for the top
seed in the district.
"When you get a three-way
tie, anything can happen,"
Brown said. "You have to go
through this five-way tie-
breaker and I'd rather be there
than the number four or five
seed. So we need to win both
games~against Orange Park."

Raiders on Thursday and then

Joplin is only a 30-minute drive from
Northeastern Oklahoma, but Loyd said he still
needed to be closer to his sister.
"I wanted to be around her. That's why I left
college coaching," Loyd recalled.
"Joplin had fallen on hard times, but we had
two decent years [3-2 and 4;1 in conference
play]. I'm glad I did it. I wouldn't change any-
Garrick McGee, a former all-american quar-
terback at Northeastern Oklahoma, said Loyd's
biggest achievement as a junior college coach
was not winning more than 87 percent of his
games, but his ability to mentor a "melting
pot" of players.
"Coach Loyd cared about you as a person,
not just as an athlete," said Mc~ee in a phone
interview from his office at the University of
Arkansas, where he is the quarterback coach
under Bobby Petrino.
"He attacks problems, not people."
Loyd left Vero Beach in 1984 to sign with the
USFL's Oklahoma Outlaws.
He played behind Doug Williams when the
Outlaws went 6-10 in their inaugural year.
After that season, Loyd accepted his first
high school coaching job at Tulsa Memonial
Highwas told, 'You will not win here,' Loyd
"But our first season, we were 6-4 and went
for two against Tulsa Union and got beat 7-6."
At Tulsa Memorial, Loyd installed an early
version of the one-back offense, a scheme he
brought from the USFL.
Even during his early days at Vero Beach,
Loyd knew how to dismantle a defense.
"Mike taught us plenty about attacking the
secondary," recalled Livings.
After Loyd went 31-13 in four years at Tulsa
Memorial, his offensive exploits caught the eye
of junior college coach Glen Wolfe, then the
head coach at Northeastern Oklahoma.
Wolfe, who won a national title in 1980,
hired Loyd in 1990 to be his offensive coordi-
nator and heir apparent.
"Glen wanted to learn more about throwing
the football," Loyd recalled. "At the time, a
wide-open formation was three wide receivers
or split backs with two wide receivers."
Loyd ran a balanced, one-back attack for the

1980, Livings compiled a 103-22-4 record at
Alabama's Jeff Davis High.
"He's the Bear Bryant of high school foot-
ball," said current Vero Beach High football
coach Gary Coggin in a recent phone inter-
"Once you coach for Billy, you admire him
so much. There came a point where he no
longer coached kids, he coached coaches."
Loyd fondly remembers his two short sea-
sons under Livings, first as a secondary coach
and later as Vero's offensive coordinator.
According to Loyd, Livings was a Bobby
Bowden-like figure who treated his players and
coaches with the utmost respect.
Coggin said,Livings was a "father figure" to
coaches in two states and a person of "high

rapport with the kids. You
knew he was going to be a

Livings (211-85 in 26 years at Vero Beach)
was a former University of. Kentucky center
who modeled his coaching career on the teach-
ings of Bryant and Vince Lombardi.
"Everybody followed what Coach Bryant did
in those days," said Livings, who won a state
title at Montgomery's Jeff Davis High in 1978

In21 years as a head football coach, Mike
had a losing record.
In five years at Northeastern Oklahoma ATM
College, Loyd went 47-7. His winning perc~ent-
age (.870) is still the best in school history.
But steering down-on-its-luck Joplin (Mo.)
High to a break-even season in 1997 and a
share of its first conference crown in more
than a decade may have been Loyd's most
memorable gridiron accomplishment.
"We won the Ozark Conference for the first
time in 11 years. When I reflect back on it, that
might have been one of my better coaching
jobs," Loyd, the newly hired
head football coach at Ponte .................

One tenet Livings lived by: If a team con-

Coach Livings was that you have to treat your

organization has brought world-
class musical performers to our
area. There is no telling how
Many lives have been positively
affected by the BFAS. Moreover,
they have done it without
charging anyone a dime.
But BFAS is not sitting back on
its heels waiting for a sucker
punch; its plan is to become less
dependent on the whims of on-
again off-again! state subsidies.
"They've told us not to expect
anything," said BFAS director, ,
Kathy Wallis, of Duval County's
About 15 percent of the BFAS
annual budget of $350,000
came fro Duval. The Cultural
Council of Jacksonville provided
another $52,000, all money that
BFAS won't see.
Now in its 22nd season, the
Beaches Fine Arts Series
8 Triathlons have grown not only
in the number of people'
involved in them but in their
importance to the BFAS organi-
zation. The popular sprint

added a new
event, a duathlon,
to its lineup in
order to help
cover the gap in
funding and also
to bring another
group of partici-
pants into the

They can forget; their water
phobia, for the duathlon, set for
April l9 at 8 a.m., will consist of
two 2-mile runs and a 12-mile
bike race. The course will be
entirely inside the developing
Nocatee area along CR210 in
Ponte Vedra.
Wallis said:'People have been
amazed at the beautiful area. It
is a wonderful place for a race
and there is very little traffic.
"This is an event that anyone
can do, it takes iery little train-
ing and it's an easy race for a
cyclist, only 12 miles. They can
even do it' as a team," Wallis
continued. "It starts with a two-
mile run, then a 12-mile bike
race, then finiishes with another '
two-mile run."
The earmark of the BFAS
sprint triathlons has always
been creative, unique awards,
attractive tee shirts, first-class
organization, great goody bags
and valuable raffle drawings.
The duathlon will be no differ-
ent. A carbon frameset worth-
$1,699 has been donated by
Bike Fitters in Ponte Vedra. All
the duathlon's participants are
eligible to win.

SContinued from B-1

most part in junior college, and
coached three future NFL tail-
backs, including Lamar Smith, a
third-round pick of the Seattle
Northeastern Oklahoma
appeared in three national
championship games while
Loyd was the head coach from
"At NEO, if you ~didn't win or
play for the national champi-
onship, it wasn't a successful
season," Loyd said.
"I've been where it's a busi-
ness. That's why I enjoy coach-
ing kids. You don't get rich
coaching high school, but you
get rewards in other ways and
that stuff is very satisfying."

Winning not endl-all

JoAfter hisdtwoa sbtin at
school programs at McAlester
and Ardmore, Okla.
He led McAlester to the Class
5A state semifinals in 1999, a
week after knocking off the top-
ranked 5A team in the state.
At Ardmore, Loyd was 67-27
overall with eight consecutive
state playoff berths and two
state semifinal appearances.
In January, Loyd saw the
Ponte Vedra High football
opening advertised on the
Assitio n esitelan trw

his hat into the ring.
"I've always wanted to get
back to- Florida," said Loyd,
who inquired about the Vero
Beach football job when Livings
retired in 2005, but never for-
mally applied.
"Sometimes you get another
challenge in your career. But it's
not easy to leave a place after
eight years."
"Oklahoma is losing one of
the best coaches in the state,"
said McGee, whose late father
coached high school football at
Tulsa's Booker T. Washington
"I'll always appreciate what
Coach Loyd did for me as an
athlete and a young man."
"I wish more NFL guys were
coaching at the high school
level," added Jim Hanifan,
Loyd's former football coach
with the St. Louis Cardinals.
"You earn more aut tre
their minister and their surro-
gate father."
Hanifan, a former assistant
coach on Super Bowl teams
with the Washington Redskins
and the St. Louis Rams, said
Loyd was an accurate passer
who was always "cool, calm
and collected in the pocket."
Williams, the Super Bowl
XXII MVP who played with
Loyd in the USFL and succeed-
ed Eddie Robinson as head
covh at srammbhin hatles

"biggest thrill" coaching on the
High school level.
"Ain't nothing like it,"
Wnilliams, now a personnel
executive with the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and a former high
school coach in Louisiana, said
in a phone interview.
"NJot many people know this,
but my team [Northeast] beat
Peyton Manning's team
[Newman] in the state playoffs
his senior yea."
Loyd may not be able to top
that, but winning alone hasn't
always been the end-all for
Livings said he equated suc-
cess if his team gave its all on
any given Friday night.
"You're not a failure, just
because you lost a football
game," said Livings, who was
inducted into the Alabama
High School Athletic
Assoiation's Hall of Fame in
Added Loyd, who will inau-
gurate spring football practice
at Ponte Vedra High in May:
"Coaching high school football
is not an ego thing for me. I
think it's a privilege to work
with young men and teach
them some life lessons.
"I'm very competitive, don't
get me wrong. But that's not
the most important thing. If
~my kids can lay it on the line,
play as a team and give every-
thing they have, they; are win-
