by CHUCK ADAMS
Faculty, staff and students at Rawlings
Elementary stayed after school Monday
to greet Deputy Steve Bailey, a former
Rawlings youth resource officer whose
misfortunes have prompted an outpour-
ing of community support.
Bailey and his fiancee, Joyce
Holliman, were invited to Rawlings to
receive gifts of money, gift cards and a
buffet that included Bailey's favorite
chicken dish Lee's fried chicken..
Bailey has been out of work since
October, when a stroke left him para-
lyzed on his left side. An apartment fire
at Easter also left the couple temporarily
The money collected by Rawlings -
$4,800 will be added to a fund for
Bailey that includes the $10,000 prize
money St. Johns County Sheriff David
Shoar won in a recent online competi-
The Rawlings donation came from a
number of sources, but the platter of
chicken came from a Jacksonville restau-
rant that Bailey and Holliman had tried
in vain to find.
Rawlings teacher Stephanie Carroll,
who spearheaded the school's collec-
tion, said Holliman put Bailey in their
car Saturday in search of Lee's Fried
Chicken, Bailey's favorite.
But the couple couldn't find the
restaurant, so they returned home
"Another teacher and I thought it
would be a cool idea to call the owner,"
said Carroll, "and the owner donated
Sandy Clark, mother of Rawlings
teacher Stacy Norman, went to Lee's on
San Jose Boulevard to pick up the chick-
en, Carroll said.
Swisher International, where Carroll's
husband works, donated close to $1,000.
Rawlings gave $1,303, nearly half of it
from the school's coin collection. School
secretary Susan Painter had put the $600
of coins into paper rolls, Carroll said.
An anonymous donor added a check
Also given were Applebee's, Publix,
Stein Mart and Target gift cards. The lat-
ter had been given to Rawlings teachers
on teacher appreciation day.
All classes at Rawlings made cards for

Although the ,Ponte- Vedra
area has numerous ponds,

to a St. Johns COunty Sheriff's

Workers at the Sawgrass
Marriott Resort, the PGA Tour
headquarters and other busi-
nesses in the Ponte Vedra area
will be surveyed to help deter-
mine whether a JTA bus route
into Ponte Vedra is warranted.
At a recent meeting with
officials of the JTA -
authority and leaders of the
three Duval Beaches munici-
palities, the president of the
Ponte Vedra Chamber of
Commerce said the housing
market is taking some workers
away from their jobs.
Conversions of apartments
to condominiums are creating
"major problems" for service
industry workers who can't
afford to live in the city where
they work, said Jeffrey
Oliasami, Ponte Vedra
Chamber president and hotel
manager at the Sawgrass
"There are no apartments
left. They are all gone. Of over
500 of our [hotel] associates,
80 percent of them come from
Duval County," Ollasami said.
"The need for transporta-
tion is just growing."
Oliasami said many 'of his
employees take JTA buses as
far south as they go to the
Target shopping center in
south Jacksonville Beach.
"We try to pick them up"
for the remainder of the trip
to the Marriott, he said, but
some of them walk from the
Target a distance of about
Also at the meeting, held
Thursday in Jacksonville
Beach City Hall, was Mark
Slyter, administrator of Baptist
Medical Center Beaches and a
member of the Ponte Vedra
and Jacksonville Beach
Slvter said many of his
staffers and patients travel
between the hospital campus
in Jacksonville Beach and
medical offices in Ponte Vedra
and could benefit from bus
service into Ponte Vedra.
"We have offices in Ponte
Vedra and other areas that
would benefit from that type
of transportation, Slyter said.
Extension of JTA service
into north St. Johns County
was proposed last month by
,Jacksonville Beach City
Councilor Penny Christian,
who said such service could
accommodate hotel, restau-
rant and other service employ-
ees in the area who rely on
public transportation to get to
Steve Arlington, director of
strategic planning for JTA, said
said Thursday that adding
service into north St. Johns
County "could take a couple
of years to implement" if it
were included in the agency's

"JTA is going through the
most comprehensive route

.Arlington said the feasibility
of a new route is determined
by,first conducting a detailed
review of the current system
and identifying trends and
changes in the census data for
a particular area.
By surveying weekday and
weekend JTA riders, officials
find out about the most cur-
rent ridership trends.

may be [a rider's] only way to
get to their job," he said.

raises two questions.
First, who should vote to
determine the outcome of the:
I gather Mr. Gulliford favors
a property ,qualification to
vote,: thereby excluding
renters but including absentee
landlords. This concept stems
from the 18th century when
Africans could be chattel and
white women lawfully beaten
by their husbands or fathers.
Renters pay their fare, howev-
er short-lived their residence.
Absentee landlords' voting
,their property is plutocratic,
and 'without precedent in
modern America. If you live
in Atlantic Beach, you should
be able to cast your vote on
any municipal ballot.
Second, should the out-
come of the, "community
character" debate be applied
to all of Atlantic Beach?
It was former Mayor John
Meserve's cohort on the
Atlantic Beach Commission
that started the "community
character" debate, appropriat-
ing $50,000 of the taxpayers'
money. My understanding is
that the core city, designated
Old Atlantic Beach, was the
source of complaints that ,led
the Meserve cohort to under-
write the Winter study. (I
attended the three "commu-
nity chats" held recently in
Donner, Marsh. Oaks and
Jordan Park and the "commu-

Mahoneys enjoy New
by KATHY NICOLETTI
Sherry and John Mahoney
of Ponte Vedra Beach
alvwas found the'time'to
cook for their family, and
now that they are so-called
"empty nesters," they still
prefer eating well-prepared
meals at home.
"If you,re going to sit down
to eat, you might as well eat
good," said John Mahoney,
vice president of Mergers and
Acquisitions with Allen C.
Ewing & Co. ,
Wife Sherry is a dietician
and director of the nutrition
department and the intern-
ship program at the May'o
Family dinners were the
norm while the couple's two
college-age daughters were
still at home.
The family regularly
enjoyed a home-cooked din-
ner served by candlelight
with music playing around 7..
This was a chance for the
family to relax after a day at
school or work, Sherry said.
"The whole day just lifts off
you and you can really wind
down," she added.
As the girls grew older and
the family's needs changed,
Sherry said her husband
became more involved with
the daily meal preparation.
This worked very well as he
had developed an interest in
cooking during the years he
had lived in New Orleans.
While he was a student at
Tulane University, Mahoney
,1. swaidjhat he quickly found ,
that dining at restaurants was;
too expensive and fast food
was just not an option.
Good food is part of the
culture of New Orleans, and
Mahoney easily became swept
up in it.
"It's just a tradition there
for guys to talk about food.
It's almost like another major
league sport," he added.
Most weekday nights,
SMahoney handles the cook-
ing responsibilities, either for
the whole family when the
girls are home or for himself
Friday and Saturday nights
are designated for trying new
recipes. The couple has a col-
lection of close to 50 cook-
books, including some by two
of John's favorite chefs, Paul
Prudhomme and lacques
Sherry's influence on keep-
ing their diet healthy is obvi-
ous. She prefers lean cuts of
meat, poultry or seafood
which they frequently enjoy
grilled. Vegetables and salads
S accompany the main course,
and if pasta is included they
choose whole grain varieties.
To make salads more inter-
esting and nutritious, Sherry
adds fresh or dried fruit,
pecans, walnuts, or sunflower
seeds. The salads are dressed
with vinaigrette dressings
made with the more healthful
varieties of oils.
One of the couple's favorite
vegetable dishes is J.T.'s
Famous Italian Spinach. The
recipe is John's version of
spinach dishes served in two
Italian restaurants from their
hometown of Memphis.
: This dish is so delicious
that John said that lie would
have liked spinach as a child
if he had been served this.
He adds Louisiana style sea-
sonings to two classic recipes,
Boeuf Burguignon and
Crevettes avec Nouilles
(Shrimp with Noodles), to
give them' new flavor.
John's version of Beef
Burgundy has subtle heat
from the use of three types of
ground pepper for seasoning.
It is important to include all
three types, he said, as each is
tasted on different parts of
In the shrimp dish, the
three types of pepper are used
along with paprika, thyme,:
and basil to season the veg-
etables and shrimp. The
seafood stock is easy to make
after .shellinag..the 'shrimpBoil
the shells with sorrie basic
vegetables for less than a half
hour. Any extra stock freezes
well for future use.
Sherry's Coated Pecans add
crunch and a touch of sweet-
ness to salads. A few simple
ingredients and about 10
minutes in the oven and the
pecans are ready for salads,
.snacking, or other uses.
Fresh salmon marinated in
'a Maple Mustard Glaze takes
. on extra flavor from grilling
on a cedar plank. The
Mahoneys also enjoy simply
prepared grilled or pan-seared
tuna served over salad greens
dressed with a homemade
Wasabi Vinaigrette Dressing.

light-hearted reverie, all who suc-
cumbed to its charm seemed to
walk away with rosier outlooks.
Famed in song and story, the porch
swing has also gotten credit for
sparking countless romances.
In the 21st century, we are still
captivated by the porch swing,
which has worked its way so deeply
into the fabric of our culture that
it's hard to find anyone who does-
n't own one, or have fond memo-
ries of one. In fact, its popularity is
increasing, as today's hectic
lifestyles create the yearning for a
more carefree time.
Fortunately, you can have the
best of both worlds. With one of the
largest selections of porch swings
available, everything from classic,
hand-crafted wood swings, to gor-
geous porch swings made from
polywood; .and a new, synthetic
"wicker" that looks authentic, but,
like your memories, is virtually
indestructible. In styles from rustic
to elegant, every porch swing is
crafted for ultimate comfort.
Furthermore, even if you don't
have a porch, you can still enjoy a
swing by getting a durable swing
stand for your deck, patio, or yard.

Panthers football opens with Memphis
The Nease football team, which opened
its 2005 season in Hoover, Ala., gets start-
ed closer to home this year. The Panthers'
season begins Aug. 26 at the University of
North Florida, where they take on two-
time defending Tennesseestate champio_ i
Memphis University School.
The two schools will meet in the inau-
gural Bill Bates High School Football
Classic benefitting Tom Coughlin Jay Fund
Foundation. Game time is set for 4 p.m.,
but is subject to change for television.
This year's Nease spring game, originally
scheduled for May 20 at DeLand, has been
moved to May 18 because the Bulldogs are
playing in the Class 6A state baseball
championship in Sarasota May 19-20.
Game time of the spring game is 7 p.m.
The site is Spec Martin Field in DeLand.
The Panthers meet Memphis University
School after playing in a pre-season classic
Aug. 17 at The Bolles School. They contin-
ue the regular season Sept. 8 by traveling
to Sanford Seminole.
Nease entertains Fleming Island for
homecoming Sept. 15, then plays host to
Palatka Sept. 22.
The Panthers travel to their next three
games, Pedro Menendez Sept. 29, St.
Augustine Oct. 6 and Ridgeview Oct. 13.
They return home for Lake City Columbia
Oct. 20, then hit the road again for
Middleburg Oct. 27.
The Panthers conclude the regular sea-
son by hosting Bartram Trail Nov. 3.
Ridgeview, Columbia and Middleburg
are District 5-4A games.
Nease, under coach Craig Howard, is
Florida's defending Class 4A state chamnpi-
on following a 13-2 season last year. The

"All of us at MUS are cautiously excited
about the opportunity to play Nease," said
Alston. "The exposure Nease received last
year, starting with the game with Hoover,
all the PR covering Tim Tebow, then fin-
ishing up with a state championship, cer-
tainly makes Nease a school with a well-
deserved national reputation."
Nease was featured in the first-ever
nationally broadcast high school football
game on ESPN from Hoover High last year.
"The opportunity to host and compete
against a class program and powerhouse
like MUS is something our boys and our
community are excited about," said
Howard. "Hopefully playing the game in
front of 10,000 fans at LUNF and attracting
television and media coverage will give
boys from both schools a big-time experi-

The inaugural football classic is named
for Bill Bates, who played for the Dallas
Cowboys for 15 years, including the 1992,
1993 and 1995 Super Bowl championship
teams, and was named to the All-Time
Dallas Cowboys Team.
Before arriving in Dallas, Bates was a
four-year starting safety at the University
Bates and his family live in Ponte Vedra
Beach, where he is a volunteer for youth
sports leagues and an assistant coach at
"Maintaining an association with high
school athletics is important to us," said
Bates. "My.wife Denise and I are excited
about the opportunity to help organize
and promote a national high school game
every year. Of course, with three of our
boys being members of the Nease team
and me being an assistant coach at Nease,
we are thrilled we could start this tradition
right here at home."
Bates' sons Graham and Hunter, two-
thirds of a set of triplets, will be juniors in
the fall. Younger son Tanner will be a fresh-
man at Nease.
"This year's matchup features two great
programs," said Bates, "one from my old
state and one from my new state, and
we're excited about the game. It will be a
great day for high school athletics."

Fans, teammates will miss Jimmy Smith

Jaguars wide receiver Jimmy Smith celebrates a catch last
season. Smith stunned fans and teammates late last week
when he announced his retirement on the eve of mini-camp.
By REX EDMONDSON
SPORTS COL LIANIST
Jaguars fans and coaches have
suffered several severe losses in the
past decade, but none compares
with the departure of Jimmy
Smith, one of the prime receivers
in modem NTL annals.
Smith wasn't just a great receiv-
er, "who could make things hap-
pen," as former teammate and
long time.laguar quarterback Mark
Brunell put it, he was an inspira-
tion to his team, the coaches and
Some years ago we penned the
description of his catches and runs
as "the King James Version."
Jimmy said he loved it. But he
never said much in vanity. He was-
n't the type to blow his own horn
much. But he was human and he
wanted his genius appreciated.
There were times when he
might have shown off a bit, much
to the dismay of old time fans
who liked their football straight,
not as a vaudeville act.
But anything Jinummy did on the
field or off (charge of drug usage,
but nothing else) could be forgiven
by those who loved his talent and
the way he let the enemy know
that when he was in the lineup,
they'd better beware he could
beat them almost by himself.
Not being privy to his inner
thoughts or the battle he must
have had with himself over the act
of retirement, it's hard to say
whether he made the right deci-
sion at this time.
One thing is sure his absence
from the Jaguars will hurt. It will
hurt the team, in more ways than
one. It will hurt in their chase for
the elusive Super Bowl. It will hurt
at the gate and anything that hurts
paid admissions, hurts owner
Wavne Weaver, who has been
struggling ever since 2000.
On a personal basis, it _
hurts the media. Jimmy
Smith was an oasis of
optimism and com-
mon sense in times
of distress to this
players who have
just lost a game or are in the
midst of a bad streak is not easy,.
Jimmy Smith made it a lot better
than some players, who either
make themselves invisible or
shrug off questions with a frown.
Losing Tony Boselli at his prime
was tough. Losing Mark Brunell,
one of the most popular players
who stood up under tremendous
physical abuse, but was far from
through, was also tough.
There have been others whose
loss due to the salary cap mess,
was difficult to replace. But losing
Jimmy Smith, especially at this
time when Jack Del Rio's team
appears to be on the road to great
success, tops them all.
Jimmy's mouth full of smiles
won't be forgotten. His family
may be the winner because they'
get him exclusively now even in

Instant Air Conditioning & Heating
Offers Tips to Prepare Your Unit
for This Year's Hurricane Season
It's not too early to prepare for the upcoming hur-
ricane season, and the professionals at Instant Air
Conditioning & Heating in Atlantic Beach have
some pre-storm tips to keep you and your air con-
ditioning unit -- safer.
Instant Air Conditioning & Heating owner Eddy
recommends several items to help you, protect your
home. "Surge protectors can guard against equip-
ment damage due to lightening strikes, brown-outs
and power surges," he said, "and digital program-
mable and non-programmable thermostats with
built-in time delays can keep your compressor from
In addition, hurricane straps now required per
new building codes can secure your condenser
unit, and zinc anodes help protect against salt air
corrosion and electrolyses. 'Also, in the event of
hurricane evacuation, remember to turn off all your
utilities and electrical breakers before you leave,"
Tips like these are just part of what makes the
professionals at Instant Air Conditioning & Heating
different. "We're proud of the top-quality protes-
sional services we offer our customers," says Eddy.
"We're equally proud of our straightforward' pricing,
our 100-percent in-writing satisfaction guarantee,
our Seal of Safety program and our Service Club
membership program bonuses that few air condi-
tioning contractors are able to offer."
According to Eddy, not all air conditioning con-
tractors are the same. "Some don't specialize in the
repair or replacement of older systems, or may carry
just one brand," he said. "Othe'rs offer services onlyI
during the busy season and are not fully staffed year
round. Some even fail to show up on time or don't
show when they say they will a real frustration for
today's busy customers."

ny's endearing canine mascot. Dee and Eddy have

of combined experience among them, they run their

brands new or old," says Eddy. "In fact, our trucks

Even Instant Air's repair service is guaranteed in

Sound too good to be true? "At Instant Air we are
