Board relates a tale of two sewers, one in MSD
BY LAURA FOWLER
Residents of Ponte Vedra
and St. Augustine Beach have
more in common than they
St. Augustine Beach home-
owners may soon be aban-
doning their septic tanks and
connecting to a centralized
sewer system, just as hundreds
of Ponte Vedra homeowners
are doing now.
But while the cost of the
sewer has exceeded $20,000
for some Ponte Vedra property
owners, those in St. Augustine
Beach will end up paying
much less for their new $13.6
million gravity sewer system.
"This is one of the key rea-
sons we need to own the util-
ities in Ponte Vedra," St. Johns
County Commission Chair
Jim Bryant said in Tuesday's
A $9 million Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) grant to the
city of St. Augustine Beach
will pay about two-thirds of
the cost of the $13.6 million
gravity sewer system.
As a result, commissioners
agreed Tuesday to reduce the
connection fees by twoh-thirds
- from more than $2,000 to

District (MSD) may vary,.
depending on when the fee is
paid to JEA, Jacksonville's
public utility and owner of
Another difference between
the two sewer systems is that
St. Augustine Beach residents
will be required to connect to
the new system only if their
septic tanks fail. The connec-
tion fee reduction is an incen-
tive for hooking to the sys-
In the MSD, property own-
ers must hook to the system
within a year because of, the
requirements of a DEP loan to
build the system.
Bryant said the MSD could
have applied for similar DEP
grants if the county owned
the utility service in that area
last year when the new vacu-
um sewer system was built.
Although the grant awarded
to St. Augustine Beach was
only for small incorporated
cities, Bryant said other grants
would have been available to
the unincorporated MSD
because it's a special taxing
The MSD generally includes
the area east of State Road
A1A from the Duval County
line to Corona Road. Then it
runs south along Ponte Vedra
Boulevard for six miles.
Maguire of Ponte Vedra
agreed with Bryant, saying he
has received many complaints
from Porrte Vedra homeown-
ers about the tremendous
costs of connecting to the sys-
tem and abandoning their
Maguire said some MSD
homeowners have discovered
they actually have three septic
tanks, driving up costs. Some
bills for connecting to the sys-
tem have reached $20,000, he
"By owning the system, the
county has a lot more flexibil-
ity with reaching out and
offering assistance," Maguire
Although the connection
costs turned otit to be a "criti-
cal issue" in Ponte Vedra,
Maguire said that will not
happen in St. Augustine
County Utility Director Bill
Young said connection costs
in St. Augustine Beach are not
likely to exceed $6,000 for any
Young said the county has
set aside some of the money
needed to build the sewer sys-
tem but will need to borrow
about $10 million.
Then the grant, which is
renewed each year, will pay
the first 11 years of annual
payments of about $750,000,
After that, Young said the
county will take over the pay-
ments, which will lower to
about $688,000 each year.
The purpose of the project
is to abandon septic tanks that
are leaking pollutants, the
same rationale that was used
in pushing for the sewer in

"A good percentage of the
south end of Ponte Vedra went
out," said George Forbes, city
manager for Jacksonville
Beach, whose utility depart-
ment provides electricity
throughout Ponte Vedra.
"This was caused by a con-
tractor, not Beaches Energy,"
Beaches Energy got "a lot" of
calls when the power to.about
10,000 customers went out at
2:09 p.m., Forbes sai.'. ,
The outage was caused.by a
dump truck working on
Nocatee parkway along
Count) Road 210 west of the
Intracoastal Waterway, he said.
The bucket of the truck was
left in its dump position and it
"literally ripped out our
transmission lines," Forbes
Usually, one transmission
line takes over if the other is
damaged, but both lines were
ripped out, knocking out two
major substations, one off 210
and the other off Solana Road,
Power was restored to about
a third of the customers within
20 minutes, to about half with-
in 35 minutes and to all cus-
tomers within 49 minutes,
"The problem was getting
out there because of the traf-
fic," Forbes said.
"We questioned the speed
and whether he [the dump
truck driver] was watching
where he was going," Forbes
said, adding that the contrac-
tor will be charged for the
cost of repairs.
Forbes said he had no
estimate of the outage's cost
to restaurants or other busi-
nesses that were suddenly
without power, but he said
the loss could be "tremen-

After a "productive" meet-
ing with developers, the
homeowners association of
Marsh Landing has postponed
an appeal to the St. Johns
Board of County)
Commissioners over what has
been called an eyesore in the
The association filed an
appeal in February disputing
the issuance of a 2005 permit
that allowed a chain link
fence and piles of dirt to be
placed on a vacant lot without
prior approval of Marsh
Review Board (ARB).
Barry Ansbacher, the attor-
ney representing Marsh
Landing, said in an interview
Tuesday that the developers
have agreed to seek the
approval of the ARB "immedi-
"We had a meeting with the
developer that was very pro-
ductive," Ansbacher said.
"We're hopeful that we'll be
able to resolve things that
In the meeting, the develop-
ers of Quadrille, a commercial
project at the corner of Solana
Road and Marsh Landing
Parkway, agreed to "beautify"
and screen the temporary
changes that have been made,
The developers plan to use
the dirt piles to create buffer-
ing and landscaping berms
once the buildings are con-
structed, according to
Ultimately, the ARB will
consider the permanent plans
for the project and decide
whether the dirt piles can stay
until construction begins.
Meanwhile, the homeown-
ers association has agreed to
tolerate the piles of dirt and
chain link fence for a little
while longer, until the devel-
opers meet with the ARB.
Last month, county com-
missioners agreed to give the
developers 30 days to work
out their problems with
Now the second hearing for
the appeal has been resched-
uled for June 27, to give devel-
opers adequate time to work
with the ARB.
But even if the Quadrille
problem is worked out before
that time, Ansbacher said he
will appear on June 27 to deal
with a bigger question: when
must an applicant seek ARB
approval before getting a
county permit to build?
Ansbacher said the unspo-
ken law that ARB approval
must be acquired before a
building permit can be issued
has always been followed in
Somehow, Quadrille slipped
through the cracks, he said.
Ansbacher said he will ask
commissioners to adopt a res-
olution that will formalize
this rule of thumb.

The Leader's Opinion
good for Beaches
Thousands of people came to the beach this past week-
end to build sandcastles, watch them be built or just to
soak in some sun.
The 60th 'annual Beaches Parade on Sunday also,
attracted a large crowd as affection for the traditional
event was unabated.
A parade of hand-made floats has long been a tradition
here on the last weekend of April, as has the annual
Sandcastle Contest. .
Both were key elements of what was once known a's
Opening Day of the Beaches. With the Beaches so busy
throughout the year, the festival had become somewhat
of a misnomer and most of the other hoopla associated
with;Ithe event is no more.'.. '
But the two remaining key. events the .parade, and
sandcastle contest remain popular and, more impor-
tantly, serve as a reminder of our roots.
No longer home to just a few bungalows by the
seashore, our Beaches community is now home to thou-
When many of those thousands turn out to enjoy a
parade of-amateur musicians or sculpt castles in the sand
alongside friends and families, it is easy to see clearly that'
ours is a great community with a lot of enthusiasm.

To the editor:
A lot has been said about
Mike Shalz, who passed away
saturday, in local eobitiaries'
and a special columrf in The
Leader by Johnny
SWoodhouse, but that is not
enough. I personally will
S praise this wonderful man
and friend far into the future.
I would like to just relate to
the community what a loss
we have suffered.
Last October my wife of
just 18 days shy of 53 years
passed away at about 8:30 at
night., I called Quinn-Shalz
funeral home and asked the
night person to make the nec-
essary arrangements for her.
Within about 5 minutes I
received a call for Mike per-
S.He explained he was on his
way to dinner and was on
Penman Road when he was
called. He immediately
informed me he was on his
.way to my home personally.'
When he arrived he took
total charge of the situation.
He said the recovery van was
on a run to Orange Park but
would be at the house in'
about 45 minutes. When the
van arrived Mike was .still
there consoling the family
and just being a friend which
he had been since he handled
the passing of my mother in
July 2000 ,. _
"When the van arrived, m
daughter, who was on her
way from Atlanta and who
did not know her mother
had passed away, was still in
1-10. Mike told the van crew
to wait until she arrived so
our daughter could be told
and have a few minutes to
have closure with her mom.
He had the van park down
the street so as not to be visi-
ble when she arrived. Mike
continued to be present and
to comfort all of us and to
oversee the arrangements at
This sensitive and consider-
ate man will be sorely missed
in this world which is, in my
humble opinion, charging
ahead too fast and not taking
the time to show love and
'care for' those around them.
God rest your soul Mike.
I truly believe you made a
difference in this world and'
you have earned a place in
heaven where God will surely
utter to you as he has to
other, "VWell done, my good
and faithful servant."

AB solution is in middle
STo the editor:
I'd Like to think I'm speaking
for the silent majority con-
cerning the controversy over
the proposed building ordi-
nance in Atlantic Beach. I am
speaking of those residents
that feel the current proposed
ordinance is too restrictive but
also feel that the Save Atlantic
Beach group is too extreme.
Their actions are like trying to
blow out a match with a hre
extinguisher. There has to be,
and should be, a happy lor
happier i middleground. A
wise friend of mine has said,
"It doesn't have to be hard."
There will always be issues
that divide us. But over the
last several weeks this issue
has gotten out of control. The
mean spiritedness saddens me.
Some people seem to be put-
ting the market value of their
property over the value of the
neighborhood we love. When

Nour consideration to neigh-
.bors disappears. Our property
values have increased astro-
nomically in the last few
years. It is hard to not want to
protect every right you feel
you have to that property.

ments and opinions, instead

To the editor:
A recent writer stated that
she knew of "..contracts that
had fallen through because of
the proposed draft ordi-
nance.." in old Atlantic
Beach. This is a "SAVE" scare
# tactic. If someone is choosing
not to buy an existing home
in Atlantic Beach because of
the proposed ordinance, it
would be logical that the,
buyer is not interested in
actually living in the
existing home, but is probably
be a developer concerned
because it would not be prof-
itable to bulldoze the existing
The "SAVE" movement is a
well organized, intelligent,
vocal, MIfNORITY (mi-no'ri-ti
-- the smaller number, or a
number less than half). How
do we know they are a minor-
ity? We know this because
they are the same people who
supported the incumbents in
Atlantic Beaches' last election,
and lost. The reason that they
lost is because a majority of
the residents who voted in
Atlantic Beaches' last election
voted for the candidates who
supported the platform for
maintaining the character of
Atlantic Beaches' residential
community and limiting the
Yes, residents should have
property rights. What is now
being decided is what those
rights are. Who is right? The
majority should be. Again,
that was clearly expressed: in
the last election.
If someone intends to be a-
long term :resident .of' old
Atlantic Beach," why would.
they be extremely interested
..in their properties apprecia-
tion? We plan to stay here, so
how would that proft us? I
am certainly not hoping for
higher property taxes. Are
you? Without any effort at,
all, Atlantic Beach property
will increase in value. .
Isn't it a paradox that your
property value can increase
and your quality of life can
decrease? Hasn't that hap-
pened to Jacksonville? Several
years ago politicians boasted
that the First Coast had
"..reached a population of a
million people!" Has that
been a good thing for anyone,
besides upwardly mobile
politicians and developers?
Jacksonville's property prices
are up with the rise in
demand (population); so is
crime, traffic, congestion, pol-
lution, etc. Hopefully, we will
.learn from the cities of south
Florida how big money has
ruined their property near the
ocean, and that philosophy
will never be the majority in
Atlantic Beach. Sorry
Jacksonville Beach, it is grow-.
ing a little late for you.
'PS Will Atlantic Beach
have to fund the Seminole
Road, "flyover" to get on
Atlantic Boulevard when the'
new Walmart is built?
Wake up, Atlantic Beach
I live in Old Atlantic Beach
and I am guilty of having my
head in the sand. I have little
interest in politics but recent-
ly my friend Kevin asked if I
knew about the proposed
Regulations and I was forced
to wake up. Our city is in tur-
moil and this is not good.
I joined "Save. Atlantic

our government should be
able to restrict our freedom of
design expression and person-

When I was passing out
information to residents on
Beach Avenue I realized just
how misinformed a great.deal
of our residents are where the
ordinances are concerned.
I found a great deal of the
most antagonistic people had
not even read the ordinances
but were adamant in defend-
ing hearsay and misinforma-
tion. I realize how difficult the
ordinances are to read and

Most of the people involved
with "Save Atlantic Beach" are
only interested in scraping
this very restrictive proposed
plan and starting over with
what we already have and
making it better.
Please, Atlantic Beach,
awake! Read and consult until
you are informed. These
restrictions are now targeted
toward "Old Atlantic Beach"
but it will never stop there.

N Holiday Inn's closing
has triggered some nos-
talgia in me: The hotel is to be
renovated and turned into a
Marriott Courtyard, which no,
doubt will be impressive. Still,
I'll miss seeing the far-famed
sign at the place where my
late wife, Lucy, worked in the
.1970s as Assistant Innkeeper.
Being one of the most
familiar, large lodgings, it nat-
urally attracted out-of-town
groups such as football teams
playing in the Gator Bowl.
During one of those occasions
removed the front door in the
middle of the night, laying it
down on the grounic, unbro-
ken, thankfully, and underlin-
ing the hotel's "always open"
Then there was the time
when guests who arrived on
mriotorcycles wanted to park
their iron ponies in the lobby
for safekeeping. Although the
inclination of the manage-
ment was always to be hos-
pitable, the request had to be
denied. After all, what would
the decision be if someone
came later on horseback? Or
on an elephant?
,Another memorable inci-
dpnt took place when the cel-
eb rtory firing of a miniature
cannon on the roof of the
building was allowed. The,
force of the ear-splitting
explosion from such a small
artillery piece was shocking. It
bent a big, high-level, plate-
glass window inward, threat-
ening to shatter it. Happily,
though, World War III hadn't

enjoy scouting for bands to

grandiose plan to turn the
lounge into "7th Heaven,"
complete with "pearly gates"
for the entrance and fluffy,
white (cloud-like) carpeting.
Of course there would be
winged angels for waitresses.
When Lucy told me about
the proposed project, I volun-
teered to play St. Peter, gate-
keeper of Heaven.
Unfortunately, she didn't take
me seriously. Anyhow,
although the conception was
a lofty idea, it never got off

A sailboat prepares to cross under the McCormick Bridge last week. The drawbridge, opened in 1949, will be replaced by a taller
concrete span by late 2007.

bridge over the Intracoastal
Waterway at Jacksonville
Beach is entering its stretch
So too are the brid-
getenders who work there.
The drawbridge, first
opened in 1949, will be
replaced by a much taller
concrete span in a few years.
Until then, the bridge is
occupied 24 hours a day by
at least one tender who
works an eight-hour shift:
"Eight months of the year
we open upon request," said
Vicki Ireland of Jacksonville
Beach, who has worked on
the McCormick bridge for
almost eight years.
"But two months in the
spring and two in the fall we
have our heavier traffic, sail-
boats heading north for the
summer and back south for
the winter. Then we open on'
the hour and the half hour,
but that's just during rush
hour. On the weekends it's
from noon to six."
Bridgetenders lift and
lower the spans by pushing
buttons on a console in the
'tenderhouse. Warning lights,
together, by pushing a but-
ton that's part of the con-
sole," said Ireland.
"It's kind of idiot proof.
When the four locks are
pulled, the lights to open
the spans start flashing.
Then you push the open
button, and the spans go to
"Before you lower them,
you press the horn button
[five short blasts] to signify
you're ready to lower the
bridge. Once the spans are
seated, you drive the locks.
Then you raise the gates."
The entire process, Ireland
said, normally takes four to
Ireland managed a rental
car agency before becoming
a bridgetender. As a trainee,
she worked each of the three
shifts and then had to pass a
written test administered by
the state Department of
After passing the written
test, applicarits return to the
bridge for a test opening in
front of a DOT supervisor in
change of aiea bridges.
Bridgetenders are required
to take annual tests.
"There aren't as many'
bridge raisings-during the-. '
course of a shift as people
might think," said Ireland.
"During the day, it could
be a dozen times, maybe a
couple times at night, a cou-
ple times from midnight to
8 a.m. And sometimes not at
Other McCormick brid-
getenders include Coast
Guard veteran David Clancy,
Trish Herberg, whose hus-
band, Mark, oversees the
Main Street, Ortega River
and Sisters Creek bridges,
Glenn Anthony, Jim
Munyan, Louie Faulkner and
Not much has changed
during Ireland's almost eight
years on the job, except for
the paperwork, which
became computerized a few
"Prior to computerization,
everything was handwritten.
Log books were kept [to
record the passage of boats
and problems that might
occur]," she said.
Bridgetenders work for
C&S Maintenance, an opera-
tor of several Florida bridges.
All high-rise bridges over
navigable waters have to
have 65 feet of clearance,
according to Terry Hartman,
'w.hoe-supervis~i.sbrid- it bri .d A-id

The clearance needed to-,.

bridge has to be raised
depends on the tides, said
Ireland. Bridges are raised at
high tide for any vessel
measuring more than 35
Hartman said his company
will try and reassign its ten-
ders to other bridges once
the McCormick drawbridge
is replaced. The first of two
new spans is expected to be
completed by late 200,7.
Ireland said she may
switch to the Bridge of Lions
in St. Augustine or to a
drawbridge on State Road
206 near Crescent Beach.
She said bridgetenders
have many ways to occupy
themselves when the spans

The Palm 'Valley Grahl
Neitz remembers had black
bears, panthers and the
Guana River running
But by 1960, a dam had
transformed the once-serpen-
tine river into a lake, and
wildlife that once roamed.
Palm Valley's thick forests,
and dense saw palmettos had
become visions of the past.
Three decades later, Neitz,
* a descendent of a pioneer
Palm Valley family, began
putting her childhood mem-
ories on paper as a way to
preserve the heritage and
historical significance of a
unique village once known
as Diego Plains;
Neitz's 12-year writing
project culminated recently
with the publication of her
Duck Feathers and the Tides:
A Collection of Palm Valley
The 337-page book also
features family photos, draw-
ings and poems by Neitz, 75,.
who was raised in a house
on Mickler Road a few hun-
dred feet from the Atlantic
"Constructed of a shell
and cement mixture
icoquinal, it proved to be
adequate for a beach resi-
dence," the book says.
"A beach-shell driveway
ran from the road to the
garage. ... The generator
powered our one oscillating
fan and provided electricity
l-',duringteven ing. hours."
Niltz, whose maiden name
is Barkoskie,.was born in
1931. Her father was a cattle-
man of Polish descent. Her
mother was once a railroad
station telegrapher in Pablo
In "Cabbageberries," Neitz
reflects on her childhood
years (1931-45) in Palm
Valley, "when primitive
Florida was struggling
against the increasing pace
of progress," the book says.
"During the early 1990s, I
saw Palm Valley's saw pal-
metto plains and dense
swamps being gradually
replaced by houses and street
lights and realized my mem-
ories of a beautiful era and
area would die with me,"
added Neitz this week.
"The idea of attempting to
portray,themin a book slow-
1.v matured. As subdivisions
began to grow in the area, I
saw a need to finish the
Neitz began compiling her
memoirs in 1993 after retir-
ing from the billing depart-
ment at CSX.
She researched the origins
of Palm Valley at area histor-
ical societies and libraries
and interviewed neighbors
and family members to sup-
plement her own stories.
The book also includes
more than a dozen pencil
drawings by Neitz, some
based on archival photos.
Among the most interest-
ing of Neitz's recollections
are chapters on Guana River,
moonshiners, Mlickler's pier,
and School No. 26, where
Neitz said she learned, "the
three R's plus geography
while sitting at wooden
desks with ink stains and .
carvings of scholars'who had
"Each row of desks made
up a grade from first to
sixth. ... Sports equipment
was unheard of. ... One out-
house for boys and another
Neitz attended the old
two-room schoolhouse on .
Palm Valley Road until its
demise in 1942. She trans-
ferred to.Jacksonville Beach
Elementary and went on to
graduate from Fletcher High
School in 1949.
During summer break,
Mickler's pier was a "major
hangout," Neitz says in the,
"Other than a windmill, a
3-horsepower engine sup-.
plied the only power source
for the pier. I remember _
those ice-cold belly' washers
in the drink box."
Neitz writes poignantly of
her late parents, Eston and
Lois Barkoskie, who married
in 1925. Neitz's mother
raised three children and
then spent 25 years as a
"house mother" at the
Daniel Memorial Home for
Children in Jacksonville.
Her father died in 1961, on
the eve of Alan Shepard's
first space flight.
Neitz doesn't claim to be a
historian, just one of the last
survivors of one of the first
families of Palm Valley.
"I wanted to get it all'
down the way it was,"''she
* said.' '

Martin relies on southem recipes
by KATHY NICOLETTI
The beautiful plantation ,
homes in southwestern
Georgia near Albany and the
rich heritage of Southern
cooking enjoyed by their
inhabitants were the inspira-
tion for "The Southern
Plantation Cookbook" by
Ponte Vedra resident Corrine
Carlton's cookbook, pub-
lished in 1976, includes
chapters on the history of
the area's plantations, pho-
tographs of the plantation
houses, and recipes from
many of the families who
Martin's family home was
Oakland Plantation where
she spent her childhood.
Oakland and several other
plantation houses dated
back to the late 19th century
while others were from the
era before the Civil War.
. A good number of the
plantations are to this day
working farms, said Martin.
"The Southern Plantation
Cookbook" has recipes for .
real Southern cooking from
the women of the area.
Although out of print,
copies of the cookbook are
available on Ebay, Martin
Although Ponte Vedra has'
been their home for several
years, Martin and her hus-
band Joe return to southwest
Georgia every year to spend
time at their quail hunting
Earlier this year, Martin's
second book was published.
The children's book is titled
"Tsunami Sue" and is about
a small girl swept away by
the 2004 Asian tsunami.
The child in this imagina-
tive story clings to her
beloved doll as she holds
onto a tree above the rush-
ing water. The story ends
happily as the little girl is
rescued'and reunited with
Martin said that she felt
compelled to write the book.
She was inspired by a for-
lorn looking rag doll she.
found a week after the disas-
ter. Proceeds from the sale of
the book will be used to
benefit children in the areas
impacted by the tsunami.
"Tsunami Sue" comes
packaged with a small doll
like the one in the story. It
is available at The Book
Mark in Atlantic Beach, A:La
Carte Catering, Wickets,
Pineapple Post, and at
"The Southern Plantation
Cookbook" remains a source
of recipes in Martin's
kitchen. Even though her
style of cooking'has changed
with the times, many of the
recipes in the cookbook are
part of family tradition for
holidays and special occa-.
One her favorite recipes in
the cookbook is Light
Homemade Biscuits. She was
taught how to make biscuits
with this recipe by another
southern cook years ago.
With a little practice, Martin
said, it's easy to make really
great biscuits with this
recipe is Tomato Pudding, a
casserole that was a standard
on holiday tables in south-
The pudding is "sweet and
sinful, like a dessert" and
-delicious with a
Thanksgiving turkey or any
other type of fowl, said
When she is entertaining,
Martin enjoys selecting
Recipes for taste as well as
for eye appeal. Since "the
eye eats first," the presenta-
tion of the food adds much
to the enjoyment of any
Martin's recipe for Black
Forest Pork Chops combines
thick pork chops with a lus-
cious cherry sauce.

and adaptable ordering system to help you save money by
managing your inventory.
Another one of Atlantic Laser's most sought-after and
money-saving specialties is remanufactured cartridges. "The
components for today's remanufactured cartridges are much
more complex than they used to be," Patsy says. "Some have
computer chips with more advanced features that require
more technical compatibility considerations, and that's why
our remanufacturing experts are fully trained in the remanu-
facturing process that we perform in house."
Atlantic Laser's remanufacturing process includes pre-test-
ing, disassembly, reassembly and post-testing. Note that the
process begins and ends with testing. First the technicians test
to see which parts of the cartridge can be recycled and then
they disassemble the cartridge. Those parts that are reusable
are cleaned and sorted for reassembly. All unused toner is
cleaned out and defective parts are properly disposed of.
Using new and reclaimed parts, the cartridges are reassem-
bled and filled with high-quality graphics toner for a crisp,
clean print. Then it's back to Atlantic Laser's thorough testing,
which includes checking for any print defects and continuity
of a quality print. After testing, each cartridge is sealed in a
humidity-stabilizing Mylar bag, boxed with instructions and a
test print, ready for delivery.
But there's more! Atlantic Laser's cartridge remanufacturing
process and product delivery service are as "sweet" as they are
thorough. Every remanufactured cartridge box as well as
'eveihy office supply, product and equipment delivery -
includes a sweet bonus. Every order from Atlantic Laser
includes a treat a piece or two of candy. If the order's sweet,
you know it's from Atlantic Laser!

The Beaches Leader/Ponte Vedra Leader
Jaguars get some nice catches on draft day
Halfway through the
NFL's annual fishing
thought occurred to us that
only the names change every
year. The coaches and fans
(and media) remain the same.
This is a fishing expedition,
but unlike fishermen, nobody
brags about the ones that got
This is a tournament where
the pickers may not openly
boast about what they caught,
but they will defend their
catches to the end.
Even if a team comes up
with a suspect who is blind in
one eye, has one leg shorter
than the other and is timed in
the 40 with a calendar, the
coaches and paid kibbutzers
will swear that-"Limpy" or
"Squint" or whatever his
name is, was what they were
looking for all along.
The Jaguars took (we said,
"took," not "were taken") two
men from UCLA: Tight end
Marcedes Lewis and running
back/kick returned Maurice
Drew and one from
Oklahoma, Clint Ingram, line-
This constituted the first
dav's catch. The latter was the
sole linebacker netted and he
was quick to say he wants to,
start and replace Akin
Ayodele, which sounds note-
worthy, but then one could
hardly expect him to say he's
content to sit on the bench
and spend the games playing
gin with other stationary
chattel such as David Garrard
and Quinn Gray.
That should be hardly the
case. The Jaguars need a fix at
linebacker to replace.Ayodele
and anyone can apply and
show his stuff. Ingram has a
chance. He's not competing
for quarterback against Byron
Leftwich, in which case he
might as well stay home.
How about this Maurice
Drew, described as a running
back/kick returned? He's 5-
feet-7, 209, a welcome change
from most these days who
range in the 8-foot area. At
least those of us in the media
can talk to Maurice without
standing on a chair.
What's in a name? The great
Barrymore actors, Lionel and
John (and Ethel) had a father
named Maurice and a grand-
dad from the Drews. They all
had class coming out of their
ears. Maybe this Maurice, who
had a mess of records with the
Bruins and passed up his sen-
ior year "to please his grandfa-
their chalked up all-purpose
yardage of 4,688, and among
other things, returned 15
punts for 427 yards, catching
31 passes for 453 yards, will
also have class.
He led the nation with 28.7
yard average on punt returns.
So far, he sounds all right.
At a luncheon last week
before the NFL draft began on
Saturday, Coach Jack Del Rio
told his media listeners that if
the Jaguars committee were
paying big attention to the
usual talents pf the college
candidates, speed, agility, past
achievements, etc., they were
also studying the character of
This is taken to mean that
no matter how talented a
player might be, his conduct
would be very important. No
presidential assassins or
known terrorists would even
be considered, we understood.
He didn't say that some off-
field or campus capers would
necessarily eliminate anyone.
If anyone might be slightly
tarnished by the latter, it
would be Dee Webb of the
Florida Gators out of
Jacksonville's Ed White High.
It always helps to have at least
one local lad coming in with
the truck load of talent.
If some critics doubt Webb's
conduct, most Gators don't
and none of the Jaguars' brass
look at him like he might be
another Lee Harvey Oswald.
They drafted a Gator, so .that
helps the overall PR approach.
Jacksonville didn't draft a
Seminole, even though there
were plenty of them to go
around. They didn't draft a
Bulldog, although some
thought skyscraper Leonard
Pope would be a nice catch.
But they did take Dee Webb
and mat pleases a lot of
Florida fans. The old saying
that you can please some of
the fans some time, but all of
the fans never, is still true.
What's important is that the
Jaguars'. brass is pleased.
Webb has been haunted by
the incident he was investigat-
ed for last February. The story
was that while showing a
teammate a AK-47 weapon, it
accidentally discharged and
nearly hit a couple of women
in the next apartment. He
probably didn't know it was
There were other things
young Dee did of question,
too, but all that is in me past,
so how can he help Del Rio's
cause now? As a cornerback
he might be a threat to the
other teams, even if he's
frisked at the gate.
What about Brent Hawkins,
DE, of Illinois State, James
Wyche, of Syracuse, or free
agent signee Jamaal Fudge, a
free'safety and also a former
Ed White star, and various
other free agents?
They say Fudge is not only
sweet, but can cover ground,
so he might be worth a
Let us not forget free agent
Nick Greisen. Del Rio and
staff like him. What else is

Dakoda Dowd plays in LPGA
event; fulfills mother's wish
Pnolo by ROB DeANGELO
Fletcher High head'football coach Joe Reynolds, whistle in mouth, inspects his
troops on the first day' of spring practices Monday. The team is preparing' for its
annual spring game later this month.
D akoda Dowd is an '
golfer, probably the best
13-year-old female in the state
She has won nearly 200 tour-
naments, and as a sixth grader
this past year, played in the
number two spot on the
Northside Christian High
School golf team and help it
win its first state title. She has
dreams of someday being a pro-
fessional golfer and playing full
time on the LPGA tour, but
knows that she must be patient
and bide her time.
The problem is that Dakoda's
mother, Kelli Jo, doesn't have a
lot of time.
Kelli Jo Dowd was diagnosed
with breast cancer in 2000 and
underwent a double mastecto-
my and chemotherapy, and
doctors felt that she had been
cured of her cancer. Then last
year, the cancer returned,-this
time invading multiple areas in
.her skeleton argid bet Uy,g,,ind,
she was ,told that her condition
was terminal. "
Knowing. that she didn't have
, long to live, Kelli Jo realized .
that there were many goals that
she would never see her daugh-
ter reach, and one of those was
seeing Dakoda, fulfill her dream
ofplaying in an LPGA event.
Bobby Ginn, a real estate'
mogul knew that he could
make things right. As chairman
of the Ginn Clubs andResorts
Open, an LPGA event in its
inaugural year in Orlando, he
extended a sponsors invitation
for Dakoda to play in the tour-
nament which began Thursday
Naturally, Dakoda accepted,
and when she teed off in her
first professional event, her
mother was walking with her
every step of the way.
Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among
women, other than skin cancer,'
and is the second leading cause
4c#S gr death in women, after
According to the American
Cancer Society, approximately.
213,000 women in the United
States will be found to have
breast cancer in 2006, and: over
40,000 women will die from
the disease this year.
Also, there are slightly over
two million women living in,
the United States who have
been treated for breast cancer..
, One out of every. eight women
will 'develop breast cancer, and.
of those that develop the dis-
ease, about one-third will die. -
Fortunately,'due to earlier ,
detection and improved treat-
*ments, breast cancer death rates
are going down.
Signs of breast cancer include.
a palpable breast lump or mass,
swelling of part of the breast,
skin irritation or dimpling, nip-
ple pain or the nipple turning
inward, redness or scaliness of
the nipple or breast skin, nipple
discharge other than breast
milk, and a lump in the ui"- -
The ACS has several guide-
lines for finding breast cancer
early in women without symp-
toms. The most common sign
of a breast cancer is a new lump
or mass, and therefore women
in their 20s should begin
monthly self breast exams, and
have a physician examination
every three years. ,.
Annual mammograms and
physician directed breast exams
should begin in women age 40.
Kelli Jo Dowd urges women
not to do what she did, for-she
didn't heed the-warning signs.
She was 36 years old and-found
,.lj4pp, but she ignored it.and
waited some ten months to.
finally get it checked, thinking
there was no way it was cancer.
If you have any of the signs
suggesting cancer of the breast,
get it checked immediately.
