Neptune Beach cops told to walk

a 15-minute beat every hour

To curb gas use and put
officers closer to residents
Neptune Beach residents can expect to see more
police officers around the city as a result of new rules
and schedule changes.
In an effort to save money on gas and boost police
presence, Neptune Beach Police Chief David Sembach
is requiring patrol officers to patrol on foot 15 minutes
out of every hour.
"We were looking at ways to save money because of
high gasoline costs and this was the most popular
[option]," Sembach said.
Officers will consume less gas because vehicles will
be turned off and they will be able to patrol specific
areas such as behind K-Mart and strip malls and ditch
lines, he said.
"It's been accepted whole-heartedly by the officers,"
Sembach said.
However, officers will not be required to patrol on
foot during certain hours primarily between 11 p.m.

and 2 a.m. since vehicles are necessary for DUI
The change became effective last month and reports
to determine how much money has been saved on gas
will be evaluated in June, according to Sembach.
Atlantic Beach Police Chief David Thompson said his
department is also evaluating several options to save
money on gas, such as alternative vehicles.
The city will discuss the options during the budget-
ing period beginning in August.
Neptune Beach officers will also undergo schedule
and shift changes effective in August to allow more
officers to patrol during peak call times, Sembach said.
The city hired an additional officer to allow for stag-
gered shifts which will save the city money in overtime
hours. A shift will now be 11.42 hours.
Sembach said-the city spent approximately $82,000 in
overtime last year.
With the shift changes including hiring a new offi-
cer the city will save approximately $40,000. .
"It's not only to save money. Really, it's to put more
officers on the street during peak call times," he said.
The new schedule will allow four to five patrol cars to
be on duty during the day as opposed to the current
three or four patrol cars.
The department has 20 police officers.

The 2008 hurricane sea-

are urging Beaches residents
to develop a plan now to

the last few years. We are in
an active cycle,"
Jacksonville Beach Fire

Thursday. "People need to

Holiday decor up for bid

This Christmas, don't expect to
see Santa Claus waving from the
median at A1A and Beach
After five years, the six-foot
Santa that once caused a stir
when it was stolen 'from his
annual spot at the entrance of the
city, will be replaced with some-
thing new.
City officials are seeking pro-
posals from companies specializ-
ing in holiday decorations to pro-
vide Christmas cheer in
Jacksonville Beach.
The city's contract with Clark
Sales Display, Inc. expires this
year. In 2003, the City Council
approved a three-year contract
with the company for $15,250
per year to set up, service, dis-
mantle and store the city's holi-
day decorations.

City Manager George Forbes
exercised an option to renew the
contract for an additional two
Over the years Forbes has shed
.a Scrooge-like reputation when
holiday .decorations are dis-
cussed. On Thursday he said he
hopes to continue the city's fes-
.tive holiday tradition even
though his choice of decorations
didn't please everyone.
"One of the council members
told me that the decorations real-
ly stink," he said. "I think they
look really nice. It shows you
everyone has their own taste."
The City Council held a work-
shop five years ago to discuss the
decorations from Latham Plaza to
the entrance 'to Jacksonville
Beach at Beach Boulevard.
The decorations go up at
Thanksgiving and remain until
New Years, Forbes said.

Harriet Pruette

to seek mayor's

post in Neptune

Neptune Beach Vice
Mayor Harriet Pruette has
announced she will seek the
office of mayor in November.
Pruette has served as vice
mayor for the past four years
and has been a Neptune
Beach resident since 1966.
Pruette said she is ready to
serve as mayor and would
like "to continue her efforts
to preserve Neptune Beach's
residential and family- ori-
ented quality of life."
She sponsored the 2004
referendum to restrict build-
ing height to 35 feet in an
effort to, she said, "do what
was right" and protect resi-
dents from excessive growth
and speculative high-rise real
estate development.
She said her leadership
skills were demonstrated
when she proposed a reso-
lution to protect the St.
Johns River, making
Neptune Beach the first com-
munity to take a stand to
protect the water and envi-
Pruette pledged to be a
strong citizen advocate and
said she will implement ade-
quate planning to meet the
needs of Neptune Beach resi-


As Mayor, she would con-
tinue to give courteous per-
sonal consideration to all res-
idents while providing the
experience and leadership
necessary to complete cur-
rent projects and resolve new
challenges, she said.
"Our citizens matter, as
does our community, and I
will continue to actively
work to keep Neptune Beach
the wonderful, residential
community we all appreci-
ate," she said.

Beaches residents will be welcomed back at any bridge

The colorful passes,

Ponte Vedra Beach.
Passes are available at

those who need them.

"We expect people to
come in and explain why
they need it," Thompson
.said. "We're fairly flexible.
We're not going to fight
with you about it."
Thompson said passes

are also issued to people
who live on Mayport Road
in Jacksonville.
Business owners must
provide identification, a
utility bill or a business tax
receipt to receive a reentry
In Neptune Beach,
records clerk Joan Herman
said business owners are
asked to write a letter ask-
ing for an employee to
receive a pass.
Those returning to the
Beaches without a pass
must be able to provide
proof of residence to gain
access. Authorities said
that will delay return as
individual documents will
have to be examined.
Linda Stoughton,
Deputy Director of
Emergency Management
for St. Johns County,
Thursday said she encour-
ages residents to keep the
reentry passes in their
glove compartment and
remember to move them
to a new car or home.
"Cars change and homes
change. There are going to
be people who don't have
one and those who can't
locate them when. they
need one," she said.
"We also have people in

short term condo rentals
who may not have one
either. They will just have
to show us an ID or some-
thing that lets us know
they are where they need
to be."
"The blue passes allow
business owners, to come
in and check on their
property but they will not
be able to open for busi-
ness," Frazier said.
"The Beaches will be
pretty locked down until
the infrastructure is clear
and the power is restored."
Passes also distinguish
emergency, medical and
city personnel that are
considered critical to the
safety of the residents.
"Hospitals, lumber facili-
ties like Home Depot and
places like Publix will be
considered critical," Frazier
said. "No one will be
allowed back until every-
thing is secured."
Stoughton said reentry
passes are only issued to
residents living east of the
Intracoastal Waterway.
"This gives us better con-
trol of people going across
the bridges," she said. "If
we have an Atlantic storm,
that is the area that will
receive the most damage."

Stoughton said the
hanger tags do more than
speed up the reentry
"They provide twofold
for us. We recognize resi-
dents and business owners

residents will be able to

Frazier and Stoughton said.
Frazier Thursday said the
key to a safe storm season
is planning. Residents
should plan to evacuate as
early as possible and plan
to stay with friends or fam-
ily members elsewhere.
"If you are going -to
leave, the key is to leave
early. Staying with friends
or relatives is the best way
to go," Frazier said. "We

Beach vendor gets approval from Jax Beach council

Resort-style amenities will
soon be available to beach
goers in Jacksonville Beach.
Tom Baker, owner of Rent
Beach Stuff, LLC, Monday
received the okay Monday
from the City Council to
lease beach equipment such
as chairs, surfboards, bikes,

kayaks and other gear to vis-
itors in front of the Quality
Suites Oceanfront Hotel.
Baker is partnering with
the hotel to provide the serv-
ice which will be available to
guests and walk-up clientele.
'By having an attendant
on the beach, we can offer a
higher level of service to our
guests and it encourages
them to return," said Shawn

ieNoble, Area Manager for
Quality Suites.
Baker said the service he
plans to provide are consid-
ered as "an expected ameni-
ty at many beaches through-
out Florida."
"Now that Jacksonville
Beach has this service avail-
able, we can expect more
tourism and by default more
tax money to pay for street

upgrades and our schools."

upscale beachfront resorts in

The Leader's Opinion

Swimming skills vital
in coastal community
School is out in Duval County and soon will be
in St. Johns County.
That means thousands of children will be out
of the classrooms and on the beach, in the play-
ground or on the streets.
More children means more vigilance is needed
by all. Drivers must be extra careful, while par-
ents can expect to spend more-time keeping tabs
on their children.
Part of the.increased vigilance means making
sure that when a child is near water, whether an
ocean or a swimming pool, the child is properly
supervised. Making 'sure a child is safe in the
water requires teaching a child to swim. That
skill is absolutely vital in our
Some parents may want to teach their own
children. For those parents who do not want to
take on the task, for whatever reason, lessons are
available at several pools in our community.
Swimming lessons last a lifetime and are worth
the investment of time and money.
A child who knows, how to swim can enjoy
safer times in the water. And the heat is on, so
safely spending time in the water is a great idea.

Band will march in D.C. July 4

To the editor:
Three years ago the
Duncan U.' Fletcher High
School Band .was having
rough times. They had not
achieved a superior rating
with any of the large ensem-
bles .in two years, enrollment
was down, and the band did.
not even have enough work-
ing stands for students to use
during class. Then a new
director was hired.
Over the last three years
the band program has made
great strides. With the help,
of the PTSA, SAC, and Band
Boosters the band has been
able to obtain much needed
equipment such as music
stands, lockers-, -antd new
instruments. Through the
hard work of students and
their parents the band has
achieved a new level of per-
formance standard and will
continue to push the bar
For the past three years the "
band has earned Superior rat-
ings during marching sea-
son. This year. saw two
Fletcher High School band
students that were selected
for the All-State Band and
eleven for the All-District
Band. These numbers are
among the highest in our
county. 53 students partici-
pated in District Solo and
Ensemble. This resulted in
33 superior medals and 27
students who qualified to
perform at State Solo and
Ensemble. Those students
brought home superior
medals and excellent ratings
from their State Solo and
Ensemble, performances in
April. In addition, the Wind
Ensemble recently received a
Straight Superior rating- at
FBA District 17 Music
Performance Assessment,
qualifying them for appear-
ance in the State FBA Music
Performance Assessment.
This was the first time that
the band had achieved that
in five years. Their appear-

ance at State resulted in one
superior rating and 2 excel-
lent ratings.
The FHS Band once again
ranks among the top bands
in the state and has sus-
tained well; entertaining and
representing our communi-
ty; fostering a love of music
in generations of Beaches
families; and furthering the
academic careers of many
through scholarships and
specialized training.
This year the FHS Band
was selected to represent the
State of Florida in the 2008
National Independence Day
Parade in Washington D.C.
The band is one of only 25
selected from the entire
coiiitry:. We were nominated
by Mayor John Peyton and
were chosen for this honor
based on the decision of the
National Selection
Committee, which consid-
ered and reviewed a digital

achievements, and current
competition ratings. This is
a onee in a lifetime opportu-
nity for our local school -
Fletcher High School to rep-
resent not only the beaches
communities, but also
Jacksonville and the State of
Florida on a national level.
The.entire Beaches commu-
nity rallied around the band
and helped us to raise the
funds necessary so that all
band members can attend
this trip.
"The Pride of the Beaches"
will be marching in
Washington Dacron July 4,
2008 and with the continued
support of our school and
community, the Fletcher
Band will continue to reach
new heights in the years to
A heartfelt THANK YOU to

the past. They are function-

Don't leave animal in a parked vehicle

To the editor.
Once again during these
hot days, I cannot believe
what I see: Animals locked in
vehicles. It is a horrifying
sight. The animals are panti-
ng and have' difficulty
breathing. They are absolute-
ly trapped in a suffocating
furnace. This is particularly
directed at the individual
with" the silver truck who left
his two-dogs locked-in on'
Sunday morning at the
Cobalt Moon parking lot.

The animals were clearly in
distress.' Unfortunately, there
was no animal control officer
on duty and the other police
officer was on another call.
A car's temperature can
soar to more. .than 102
degrees in a short period of
time; a dog's temperature
ranges' from 101 to 102.5
degrees. Dogs cannot with-
stand higher temperatures
much longer without-suffer- .

such as crime prevention

Foreclosures bring vacant homes that keep

atmosphere charged for suspicious activity

by Charles J. Kovaleski
A tumultuous year of record foreclosures is rooted,
at least partially, in the rise in mortgage fraud. When
housing prices were climbing toward their zenith, it
opened the doors for criminals to obtain mortgages
illegally in myriad ways. One consultant estimates
the national annual losses between $4 billion to $6
Florida has the nation's worst problem, according
to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Fort Myers,
where the housing downturn is among the worst in
the Sunshine State, ranks No. 8 nationwide among
cities plagued by misrepresentation to lenders.
Recently in Polk County, two men pleaded guilty to
illegally receiving $34 million by completing almost
300 fraudulent mortgage applications over two years.
Rapidly rising home prices were one factor that led
:to the spike in mortgage schemes, leading to a 176
percent jump in mortgage fraud investigations over
the past five years by the FBI, which has nearly 40
task forces or working groups focused on the prob-
Lenders have tightened lending requirements over
the past year, which may help curb fake applications.
However, as the number of vacant homes increase
and represent bargain purchases, the atmosphere
remains charged for potential fraud. A classic signal:
the promise of an outrageous profit in a short
amount of time. Be aware of those who present unso-
licited contracts and use high-pressure sales tactics.
Consumers both buyers and sellers can protect

themselves through an old adage: If something
sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Consulting a real estate attorney can help protect
against potential fraud. The attorney can review doc-
uments and provide solid legal counsel. Buyers and
sellers alike never should sign blank documents.
Other tips for avoiding mortgage fraud:

REVIEW THE TITLE: See how often the property
has been sold. If it has changed hands a number of
times in a short period of time, the "flipping" may
have artificially inflated the value. Your real estate
attorney can assist with this review.

Diabetes can't slow Franklin



keep on


after spending a whole
season without pay-
g attention to the
sport, I finally decided to
watch Game 5 of the
Stanley Cup Finals.
So this is what I've been
missing all along?
After seeing the Pitts-
burgh Penguins score with
just 35 seconds left it to
overtime (which was excit-
ing all by itself), the game
then went through three
OT periods before the Pens
scored again to extend the
series against Detroit.
This was sports at its
finest. There were guys
bleeding all over the ice,
physically drained from
playing the equivalent of
two straight games, goalies
making numerous stops
when it mattered most and
the tension only sudden-
death overtime can bring.
Though a champion was-
n't crowned that night and
in the end the Red Wings
won the series in six games,
that three overtime contest
was far more exciting than
other championship
games, like the one the BCS
played this year ...

gTiger'piq&s took a shot

Sad as it, is, he's dead

watch the sport, but those

What's up with NFL stars
who can't decide whether
to play for their teams?
First it was Chad John-

Jason Taylor straying from
Miami, yet both players
now say they will return to
their teams.

team? Make the one you're
already on better. Isn't that

CBS showing the Kimbo

Big Brown goes for the
Triple Crown Saturday.
My only concern is a

of his feet. The owner
says it's no big deal, and
maybe it's not. Let's hope
he's not just another typi-

is willing to risk his

It's the time of the year for lightning safety

Almost two years ago
to the day, my house
was hit by lightning.
Unfortunately for my wife,
I was out of town and she
had to tend to the kids
during the storm and calmn
them down.
I did find out about it
though. She called me the
next morning, while I was
in the middle of an impor-
tant golf tournament mind

me all of the things that
had been destroyed.
Televisions, CD player,
VCRs, garage door openers,
wireless telephones, sprin-
kler system all ruined due
to some unfortunate luck
bestowed upon me by
Mother Nature. -
So not only was I totally
bummed out about my
stuff, I also lost my focus of
my round and proceeded to
have a few bad holes, and
:shot myself out of con-
'tention. As you can imag-
ine, the timing of that
phone call remains a dis-
cussion for us.
-I learned first hand just
how powerful lightning can
Every year about this
time, a report comes across
the news about someone
injured by lightning. It was
just a few years ago that
two people were hit by


lightning here on Amelia
Island. Unfortunately, it
seems that it is always after
the fact that we think
about just how dangerous
these summer storms can
With that in mind, it is
imperative to review safety
measures you can take
when storms approach.
Lightning kills more peo-
ple every year in the United
States than any other
weather event. Lightning
kills about 100 people
across the country annual-
ly, and Florida has the
highest number of light-
ning strikes to ground.
Knowing some simple
facts and using some com-
mon sense can save your

Here is the correct
way: After you see
the lightning flash,
count in seconds
until you hear the
thunder. Each five-
second count is one
mile. For example, 15
seconds means the
storm is three miles
away. Storms can
move fast, so head
indoors before a
storm gets within
those three miles.

"We want the girls to be

Baldwin said. "By the time I

Baldwin graduated from
UNF with a degree in busi-

surfed on the WQS from

her highest ranking of

The only thing better than three
saxophonists for the price of one is
three for free.
That's the price jazz lovers will
pay when the city of Jacksonville
Beach kicks off its seventh annual
Summer Jazz Series Sunday at the

The concert, which runs from 5 to
9 p.m., also features C1 Jazz and

"Kashiwa plays with graceful ele-
gance, Steve Cole with glorious
abandon and Kim Waters with
sophisticated soul," Toronto music
critic Francoise Morissette said.
"Our first concert was a sold-out
show and there was instant chem-
istry among the three of us," said
Kashiwa, a tenor saxophonist for-
merly with The Rippingtons.
The group's debut CD was
released in May.
Marshak, who has played at some
of Europe's biggest jazz festivals, has
appeared on top 30 jazz charts with

"Blue Morning" on Captiva

First St.




Steve Vaughn says he may
be the only person in the his-
tory of boating to trade in a
20-foot bow rider for a flat-
bottomed Jon boat.
Vaughn needs the smaller,
lightweight vessel to motor in
and out of the nooks and
crannies of the St. Johns River,
where a lot of his favorite sub-
ject matter exists.
"What I do is almost not
like work," said Vaughn, a for-
mer Orlando newspaper exec-
utive whose exhibit of
panoramic photography
opens today at First Street
Gallery in Neptune Beach.
A'reception for the artist is 7
to 9 p.m. at 216-B First Street.
Formerly the executive edi-
tor of The Orlando Sentinel,
Vaughn retired from the daily
newspaper grind in 1992 to
devote more time to his
hobby landscape photogra-
At The Sentinel, where he
worked for 25 years, Vaughn
said he enjoyed mingling with
staff photographers and photo
editors. When he retired after
30 years in journalism, he did-
n't imagine a second career as
a full-time artist.
"I thought I'd try it for a
year and see what happens,"
Vaughn said. "Now, I'm in my
16th year."
A regular exhibitor at art
festivals in Jacksonville, Ponte
Vedra and Fernandina Beach,
Vaughn said he ."adopted"
panoramic photography as his
"niche" through trial and
"I have no formal training,
except pressing the shutter,"
he quipped.
"When I'm at art shows, I
try to make time to shoot
Before manning his booth
at the PV Art Festival in the
early 1990s, Vaughn shot the
old wooden Jacksonville
Beach pier at sunrise, captur-
ing a frozen moment in time.
Vaughn said he didn't know
the photo, titled "The late
great Jax Beach pier," would
have "historic value" when he
took it.
Vaughn said his blue water
beach scenes of the Bahamas
and the Caribbean are among
his best-selling pieces at art
shows in the Midwest.
Many of Vaughn's large-
scale panoramics hang in air-
ports, hospitals and city halls
around the state, including
Jacksonville. His work was
recently exhibited at the
Florida Museum of Natural
History in Gainesville.
Vaughn uses a Fugi 617 roll
film camera, which produces
7-inch-wide negatives.
"That's the reason I can
make the prints so big," added
Vaughn, who sells panoramic
prints and photos on canvas
at his website
( and

His exhibit runs through
June 30. For gallery hours, call

Dog day
With the 10th annual
"Take Your Dog to Work
Day" set for Friday, June 20,
Bark Busters, the world's
largest dog training compa-
ny, offers tips for anyone
planning to do just that.
The event was begun by
Pet Sitters International and
is designed to educate the
working public on the bene-
fits of responsible pet owner-
ship, raise awareness of the
importance of the human-
animal bond and support
efforts of local animal shel-
ters, rescues and humane
societies, according to a news
release from Bark Busters.
Carol Anne Karol, a Bark
Busters trainer in
Jacksonville, said the key to a
successful dog-at-work expe-
rience "is to prepare yourself
and your dog in advance and
to recognize potential situa-
tions before they happen."
She offers the following
What to bring
Something familiar-a
dog pillow or blanket-so
your dog has something
familiar in an unfamiliar set-
ting, and toys to help pass
the time.

of work is 6/20

Tell us
your plans
If you or someone
you know plans to take
their dog to work on
June 20, please notify
Kristin MacCaull at
maccaull @'beach - or at 249-
9033 so The Leader can
try to get some photos.

A leash to walk from the
car to the office and to main-
tain control in the office.
Food and water.
Avoiding trouble:
Don't leave the dog
alone with other dogs. If you
must be gone for a time, iso-
late the dog in a closed office
or have someone dog sit.
.* Keep aware of other
dogs for signs, of aggressive-
ness such as growling, star-
ing, and stiff body posture.
If conflict appears possi-
ble, remove your dog from
the area.
Stopping a fight
-If a dog scuffle occurs,
don't lunge in. Throw your
dog's blanket over the heads

of the fighting dogs, giving
you time to diffuse the situa-
Be a good leader
*Establish a clear leader-
ship role with your dog
before the office field trip.
You can do this by beginning .
to ignore requests from the
dog, such as nudges to be
petted or to play. To do so,
break' eye contact. Then,
when the dog has "given
up," call him back to you to
be petted or to play. When
he responds to you, versus
you to him, he sees you as
the leader.
*If your dog misbehaves,
correct his behavior with a
forceful, low-toned growl
("BAH!"), which is a form of
communication that your
dog can understand. As soon
as he stops, offer pleasant,
high-toned praise. He will
understand his mistake and
respect you as his leader.
Like leaders in the wild,
show your leadership by
always leading your dog-
up and down stairs, through
doorways, and especially on
walks. Remember, the leader
always leads. This establishes
you as "top dog" and gains
your dog's respect.

"Should prayers offered at local busi-

ers will judge the debate. WJCT-FM
reporter Karen Feagins will moderate the
The debate is free and open to the pub-
lic. RSVPs are required;contact OneJax at
354-1529 or
A grant from the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting is providing the funding for
the event. The debate will be filmed for
