Roscoe cellular tower denied

The St. Johns County
Planning and Zoning Agency
(PZA) unanimously denied
Thursday an application to
build a 155-foot cellular tower
in Palm Valley after hearing
from neighbors in all direc-
tions who oppose it.
About 10 residents argued
that the tower, which was pro-
posed on the property of Lord

of Life Lutheran Church on
Roscoe Boulevard, wouldn't be
compatible in the largely resi-
dential area and might reduce
property values.
"Putting a cell tower there I
don't think is 'do unto others'
or 'love thy neighbor,' said
Mary Kohnke, a former
County Commissioner and a
Roscoe Boulevard resident who
lves within 300 feet of the pro-
posed tower.
Representatives of

Verticality, the company that
proposed the tower, said the
tower was to be located as far
east on the property as possible
so that it would hidden from
view of Roscoe Boulevard resi-
dents to the west.
The church's property is bor-
dered on the east by TPC
Valley golf course. Residents of
homes along the golf course
told PZA members they don't
want to see the tower, either.
But Verticality representa-

tives argued that the need for
better cellular coverage in the
Palm Valley area should far
outweigh the complaints that
the monopole tower would be
seen from neighboring homes.
"I believe that having a cell
phone saves lives," said
Verticality president William
Rand, pointing out that poor
coverage in the area may pre-
vent someone who is having a
heart attack on the golf course
from getting emergency help.

Rand presented diagrams
showing that Verizon Wireless
customers in the area of Palm
Valley have little or no recep-
Bruce Bowman, a Verizon
customer that lives in the area,
said his reception is just fine.
Rand said other existing tow-
ers were examined to see if an
antenna could be placed there,
including one owned by
Jacksonville Beach Utilities.
According to Rand, the utili-

ty company refused to allow
Verizon to place an antenna on
that tower because it could
interfere with future plans.
A similar 150-foot tower was
proposed on the church prop-
erty in 1993, when the land
had a different owner. That
tower proposal was denied,
according to St. Johns County
zoning manager Rosemary

holds lots of trash

When you go for a walk on
the beach, Ponte Vedra sen-
iors were advised Thursday, be
prepared to find just about
"I wear shoes now at the
beach," Chris Benjamin, St.
Johns County's environmen-
tal coordinator, told guests at
the Palm Valley Senior Center.
"I learned that on the New
Jersey beaches."
Reaching into two large,
plastic, opaque containers
and pulling out items one at a
time, Benjamin showed a col-
lection of things he has found
on his regular strolls on the
sands of St. Johns County.
There were clear plastic
containers of bottle caps, bal-
loon parts, plastic straws, bat-
teries, butane lighters and cig-
arette butts.
"Fiftv-seven percent of
everything that's out there -
quantitatively is a cigarette
butt," Benjamin said, bring-
ing responses of "Oh, my
gosh" and "Oh, my good-
ness" from the audience of
more than two dozen seniors.
There were toys, tools, a
dummy military shell, corks
from fishermen's netting, a
beach-ball-size wad of plastic
six-pack holders, an alien
mask and two paperback
"I found this book, too, but
I'm afraid to use it," Benjamin
said, showing the cover of
"Stupid Government Tricks."
With his quick delivery
matched by' a quick wit,
Benjamin commented on the
items he showed and specu-
lated on how they may have
ended up on the beach, often
bringing laughter from the

"Now, come on," he said,
holding up a container of
thermometers. "It's hot at the
beach do we really have to
know how hot it is?"
Holding a license tag, he
asked, "If you drive on the
beach, why would you leave
your license plate there?"
Benjamin, who said he has
been walking the beaches of
St. Johns County since 1981,
also showed representations
or examples of things that
make it to the beach at the
hands of natutie.
Among thin wfef e numet-
6us shells, a plastic rat-
tlesnake, a cloth skate also
known as a ray and a plas-
tic sea turtle.
Don't touch any sea turtles
spotted on the beach,
Benjamin said, advising the
seniors to call the Sheriff's
Office if they see an adult tur-
tle in distress or a hatchling

When he held up bones
from birds and some audience
members murmured,
"Ohhhh," Benjamin said,
"Those things happen. Birds
live and die just like every-
body does."
"When you go out there,
you need to be prepared for
everything," he said. "We've
actually found body parts -
from a burial at sea."
Benjamin said seniors can
pick up some harmless trash
when they stroll the beach
but advised against collecting
hazardous items.
"The really bad stuff -
we'll come along and we'll
clean it up," he said.
Benjamin said a July 5
beach cleanup is planned to
remove firecrackers and other
debris from July 4th revelers.

According to St. Johns
County Fire Rescue, the girl,
who was visiting with her fam-

under the water for no longer
than one minute.

Palmer Course Design leaving Ponte Vedra

Palmer Course Design, a
business that began when Hall
of Fame golfer Arnold Palmer
'and golf course architect Ed
Seay joined forces in 1971, is
closing up shop in Ponte
Vedra Beach, where it's been
since 1985.
The business is leaving the
office Seay built at 542 Ponte
Vedra Blvd. and is moving to
Bay Hill Club and Lodge in
Orlando. Bay Hill is Palmer's
winter-and-spring home club
and residence. He lives in his
boyhood home of Latrobe, Pa.,
the rest of the year.
The move is effective Oct. 1,
and the employees of Palmer
Course Design have been
given the option of relocating
to Orlando.
The company's name will be
changed to Arnold Palmer
Course Design Co., with
Palmer, 76, taking a more
active role and Sea, 68, leav-
ing his job as president and

becoming a consultant.
Palmer said in a news release
he intends "to be more in
charge of the company and
personally get more involved
in the designing." He also will
plan all other aspects of a
country club, as well, accord-
ing to the release.
"For the company, it's the
right move," said Seay, who
has had health problems for
some time.
"Arnold wants to get more
involved and be more active.
He's cutting back, not going to
have the huge staff we've had
for so many years.
"My first personal thought is
I'm going to miss the day-to-
day with the guys," Seay
added. "Because my health has
,been so [bad], I just can't do
what I used to do, travel and
watch golf for 35 years. I'm
just going to miss all the
Palmer was high in his
praise for Seay in the news

"Ed has been my
lead man in the 4l .
business, and I con-
sider him to be one
of the greatest archi-
tects of all time. He
has done a fantastic
job for us," said
Palmer. "Now, with
Ed as my consult-
ant, I will continue
to turn to him for
advice on all phases
of our company
Nearly 300 golf
courses in 38 states Ed
and 23 countries
bear the mark of Palmer
Course Design.
Ponte Vedra Beach courses,
designed or remodeled by
Palmer Design include The
Plantation, Sawgrass Country
Club, Marsh Landing Country
Club and Oak Bridge Club,
now Ponte Vedra Golf &
Country. Club at Sawgrass.
Other Jacksonville-area
designs include the King &

I Bear at World
Golf Village in
central St. Johns
County and the
Golf Club at
North Hampton
in Fernandina
Seay, a past
president of the
American Society
of Golf Course
(ASCGA), began
his career in 1964
as an associate to
Seay golf course archi-
tect Ellis Maples.
Since then, he has been
involved in the design and
construction of more than 350
courses worldwide.
Earlier this year the
University of Florida graduate
received the Distinguished
Service Award from the
ASGCA's boaid of governors at
the organization's 60th annual
meeting in Pinehurst, N.C.

Continued from A-, M -' \ C -.

Though no one in the meet-
ing Thursday could pinpoint
the reason that proposal was
denied, Kohnke told PZA
members that it was primarily
because residents "went nuts."
Kohnke said a crane of simi-
lar height was moved on the
property to show residents
how visible the tower would be
if built.
After seeing the crane, resi-
dents vehemently opposed the
tower because it would have
been highly visible, Kohnke
Questions of falling property
values were also circulated in
Thursday's meeting.
Bob Berwanger, owner of
three properties directly across
Roscoe Boulevard from the
church, estimated that his
properties would fall in value
by about $300,000.
Assistant County Attorney
Patrick McCormack said he
didn't think any "expert testi-
mony" had been presented for
the PZA's consideration.
But one PZA member said
that while a cell tower may not
lower the assessed value of a
home, it would certainly
reduce the value from a practi-
cal standpoint as the owners
try to sell the home.
Regardless, the PZA members
needed no such expert testimo-
ny and agreed that the tower
would be incompatible with
the neighborhood.

The Leader's Opinion

Now is the time to

speak on SJ charter

There is a serious proposal in the works to convert St.
Johns County to a charter form of government. The
group of citizens working on the proposal has released a
draft charter and is now seeking feedback from county
officials and voters. After the document is refined, the
state legislature will be asked to authorize a referendum
for voters to approve or reject the charter.
Seventeen Florida counties, most in urban or high-
growth areas, have adopted charters to provide the con-
trol for the way they operate. St Johns County currently
operates under the rules and regulations laid out by state
law for non-charter counties.
Since the charter committee has asked for feedback, we
will offer some. By the way, the entire draft of the pro-
posed charter is available on our Web site. We encourage
you to offer your own feedback.
For starters, the proposed charter continues the current
practice of electing all five county commissioners coun-
tywide. While each commissioner must live in one of the
five districts, all voters in the county get to vote for any
commissioner. This gave rise to the current situation that
has Ponte Vedra Beach represented by a commissioner
who was defeated in Ponte Vedra Beach but won in the
-rest of the county. It seems unfair that a district cannot
decide who it wants for its representative on the County
We believe Commissioner Ben Rich's proposal to have
one commissioner elected by voters in each of the five
districts and two commissioners elected by the entire
county will provide much better representation and bet-
ter government. County Commissioners voted in March
to put this question on this November's ballot.
Another section of the proposed charter that we
believe needs refinement deals with charter amend-
ments. Amendments proposed by the Charter Review
Commission appointed every 10 yearsT require the
approval of two thirds of charter commission members
in order to be placed on the ballot for citizen approval.
In addition, any proposed charter amendment must have
been considered at two properly noticed public hearings.
These are appropriately cautious requirements. A good
charter should be amendable, but not too easily.
Unfortunately, amendments placed on the ballot by
the County' Commission or by citizen initiative do not
have the same safeguards. A simple majority of the com-
mission can place an amendment before the voters and
any citizen can get a charter amendment on the ballot by
getting signatures of 8 percent of the number of people
who voted in the last presidential election. A charter that
is too easily amended gets cluttered with rules that are
inappropriate for a charter (see the pregnant pig clause in
the state constitution).
Finally, the charter proposed by the committee is too
detailed in its requirements for the county executive.
Specific education, including the exact field of study and
the degree required, as well as specific experience require-
ments, are details that do not belong in the charter.
.'These-detailsi.should be left to the County. Commnis'ion,'_
* Cbrffifmitteeembers who' Have prod-uced thi dractfifFt-f
a county charter deserve our gratitude. They have worked
many hours to get to this point. Now it is time for the
rest of us to carefully review the document and speak up.

Wal-Mart is 'predatorial'

To the editor:
I have been in the retail
business for 20 years. Over
that period I have personally
witnessed Wal-Mart's predato-
rial approach to extinguishing
local competition some of
you may remember shopping
in Pic-N-Save Stores here in
Jacksonville). When \Val-Mart
moves into a community the
small business' suffer and
many of them simply do not
make it. If WVal-Mart is
allowed to move into
Neptune Beach, not only will
K-Mart and \Vinn Dixie go
away, we risk losing surf shops
such as Aqua East, optical

shops, boutiques and other
small local retailers that are
the essential to the character
and environment of our
beach community.
Relative to increased traffic,
I urge the citizens of Neptune
Beach and Atlantic Beach to
drive their car on third street
thru Jacksonville Beach dur-
ing any event at the beach.
The traffic is out of control.
Dare try to ride a bike or
scooter, it is simply too dan-
gerous. This experience will
emulate to Neptune Beach
and Atlantic Beach if Wal-
Mart moves in.
[ urge the citizens of our

beach community to read Bill
Quinn's book 'How i'alAlart is
Destroying America (and the
world) And 'What You Can Do
About It'. This book will help
enlighten everyone on- the
negative effect that WVal-Mart
has had in other communities
like ours. Quinn's book will
enlighten our citizens that
Wal-Mart is not always who
they say they are. Citizens be
aware that their attorney's
statements in The Leader sim-
ply are not what WVal-Mart
will bring us tomorrow.

Proud of children in the military

To the editor:
;.,, l-*_ ,! 1.' HC '"' eg n
, name .is Pegine
tEclievaria and I am a mother
of two children. I have a
daughter (17) and a son il9i.
One is in the National Guard
and the other is in the Army.
We are not a military family
and have had no previous
experience With the military.
My son joined two years ago
and I began a journey that
was unlike any I've ever been
I did not want him to be a
soldier. I wanted him to stay
with me, close to me so I
could protect him and watch
over him. 1 love him and
have always been there to
guide him and protect him. I
saw the TV shows and read
the paper I knew what was
going on and I didn't want
him to bea part of it.
He called the recruiter and
spoke to her. The recruiter
wanted to come over, I told
her no. My son set up an
appointment. "He's growing
up, taking charge of his life" I
thought "but he is not
becoming a soldier." My hus-
band and I went to the meet-
ing with my son. We asked
tough questions, we argued
and we didn't believe what we
heard. When we came home I
set out to prove that I was
right "this is not a good
choice for him!" .
I spoke alright, interrogat-
ed) every vet and soldier I
could find. I stopped every
person I saw in uniform and
* asked about their life and
experience. I called on friends
in Human Resources and
asked their thoughts about
the military, specifically
regarding the Army and,
National Guard. and the ben-
efits and deterrents of a mili-
tary background in the world
of work. What I learned
changed me, my husband and
our perspective. "'
I learned the people who
serve in the military love
what they do. That they are
given opportunities to grow,
to lead and to learn that I
knew my son would never
receive in the civilian world as
a young man (he was a bagger
of groceries for several years,
but was never put in charge of
anything). I learned that

tionships that bonded them

he would never find in corpo-
rate America or on a college
campus. I learned the he
would learn that he is capable
of doing whatever is put in
front of him and that the
experience of pushing himself
beyond what he could ever
imagined would transform
him and make him stronger,
capable, responsible and con-
I also learned to confront
myself and acknowledge that
I was a barrier. I wasn't willing
to let him grow or move on.
That I didn't trust all the les-
sons [ had taught him and all
the love that I gave him. I
didn't trust that he could
meet the challenges or that he
would be safe.
The last statement trust-
ing that he would be safe -
was the hardest one for me to
confront. How could I say I
wanted to keep him safe and
protected from bad things if I
let him. drive? Why was it
okay for me to let him drive a
car? During his high school
career five teenagers died
from car accidents (that is
.0125 percent. According to
World Health
Organization/World Bank
report and the specific section
on the United States "The
death toll on our highways

for young people ages 5 to 27.
The staggering loss of life and
the incidence of life-threaten-
ing injuries occurring each
year is best described as a pub-
lic health crisis."
Yet hisc chances of being
hurt or killed in the military
were very slim. Of all the kids
who are serving in the mili-
'tary from school not has been
killed. Of the 1.4 million peo-
ple serving in the military 'a
small percentage 0.00164 per-
cent (2300) was killed since
the war began. I had to face
myself and acknowledge that'
I was using my fears and mis-
conceptions as barriers and
that I was holding him back

step aside. We supported his

After seeing Kenneth and
learning what the Army could
offer her as a career, my
daughter decided to apply
and has received an ROTC
scholarship. I never imagined
my daughter doing this. More
importantly, I never imagined
myself allowing her to do this..
I've met so many women
who are setting or who have
served in the Army and
National Guard. They don't
lose their femininity; they
gain, confidence, leadership
and a sense of self. They take
on responsibilities and
leadership roles that I could,
not have dealt with at their
age. .
The other benefit that we
have seen is how people hold
our kids in high regard. They
are seen as unique and
leaders. People continually
acknowledge them, *and
applaud them. They are
valued and are appreciated.
I am really proud of them
and what they have achieved.
I hope you give your daughter
or son the opportunity to
learn whether the Army or'
Guard is right for them.

Back yard

a'bit of


'Can you spare five min-
utes to. come see my back
yard?" Susan, a new friend,
.asked when Ldropped by her
house to pick up some
paperwork for a project I'd
been working on. Though
pressed for time and anxious
to look over the material
Susan had given me, some-
thing compelled me to stay
put for a little while."
"Oh sure. Why not?" I said
while crawling out of my
messy car.
Susan's front lawn was
much smaller and more
plain than I thought it
would be. Since she was a
leader in the local garden
club, I thought the young
grandmother's yard would
be a sea of organized colored.
It came as a surprise when
Susan only had two tiled
concrete benches and a
smattering of potted plants
dotting the front of her
immaculate property.
As soon as I passed
through the property's side
gate, I saw why. Susan had
saved everything for her
back yard bit of heaven.
"This is," I blurted while
catching my breath, "amaz-
ing. It's stunning."'
It was. The entire half acre
was outlined in a thick forest
^green. hedge thpt wasi well
')pve .. eight e,et.iligh.. .4,
s. prowling oak tree .stood in- a
carpet of spring green fern
while decks, swings, picnic
tables, fountains, statues,
bird baths and a rainbow
colored side garden targeted
to welcome wildlife, gave the
cottage looking yard the feel-
ing of being an outside
room. It seemed like I was
standing in the middle of a
"Better Homes and Gardens"
"It's taken a few years to
get it how I wanted it," Susan
said. "But now there is no
where on earth I'd rather
spend time than right out
here with my dogs."
Violet and Muffin, a 70-
pound greyhound and a 7-
pound Yorkie, both rescues
that would have been eutha-
nized if not for their human
"mom", seemed overjoyed to
hang out as well.
As Susan and I strolled
from one end of her outdoor
retreat to the other, life
began to feel slightly
slower., By the time my
friend and I plopped in
wooden swings near a trick-
ling fountain, I was ready to
camp out.
"This is so soothing," I
said. "Wish I had time for a
place like this each day."
"Make time. I did," Susan
replied before telling me
how, at age.45, she gave up a
corporate position for a
chance to spend more time
with the people, and in the
places, she loved. ,
"When my father .ended
up spending the last six
months of his life in a
nursing home, I visited every
day," Susan explained. "It
changed my perspective on a
lot of things. I knew that if I
didn't do something drastic,
I, was going to miss out on
the essence of life."
Susan said she cut back to
part time, made lots less
money, and had far fewer
material perks. She also
became much more relaxed
and joyful.
"Paring life back to the
basics did wonders for my
marriage," Susan said. "I
realize that everyone can't
do what I did, but I also
know that no amount of
money could buy what we
have now. Giving upa hectic
lifestyle and extra stuff was
the right choice for us."
A choice, I thought while
hurrying on to work, that
may be worth some serious,

Commission needs to stay focused

To the editor:
Recently the "movement", in
Atlantic Beach to "Save" the
town has become very interest-
ing. The make up of the leaders
of the movement as listed on
their website is suspect at best.
Involved are no less than
three- architects, two realtors,
two developers, one contractor
and a couple that recently built
a "McMansion" on a postage
stamp lot. Would it be fair to
say they all have a financial
interest in maintaining the sta-
tus quo?
They can afford to mount a
slick campaign to
preserve their interest,
The petition listed on the
website has many flaws, and as,
a legal document would not be
allowed as there are no less

than 50 signatures that do not
have Atlantic Beach addresses.
It implies the petition's,
originators obtained as many
signatures as possible to show a
large number. The number of
signatures is less than 7 percent
of the population.
Unfortunately, the original
focus of the citizens that
brought the overbuilding prob-
lems to the city have been
ignored. The projects built on
2nd St. that have two very large
boxes with 35 foot high walls
7.5 feet from the property lines
were the examples used by
these citizens.
They block the seabreeze and'
they place the adjacent proper-
ties in the shadows of the
morning and evening sun.
The city commission needs,

to stay focused on the original
problems as expressed by the
homeowners .in the core city
and move to keep the area from
being over built.

sands to landscape the medi-
ans? Does she find sight lines
blocked at intersections in
Jacksonville Beach? Do parked
cars on First Street cause con-.
cerns for her? What Del neg-
lected-to' mention is that this is
just the latest skirmish in ,a
long-simmering' feud among
various neighbors on Pine
Street that has included street-
lights, frog ponds, security
lights, parking and errant
sprinklers. /
Del appeared 'before the
Neptune Beach City Council-
and, using the adult version of
a child's ratings, begin tossing
out the L-word lawsuit if
the bushes weren't removed.
Though I believe Del's con-
cerns are unfounded, he has
illuminated a much larger
problem: Neptune *Beach's
schizophrenic policies- regard-
ing public landscaping.
In Neptune Beach, overreac-
tion is the response we've come
to expect from our elected
officials and bureaucrats and
Del's bush bashing now has
taken an even more absurd
turn. i
Apparently, City Manager
Jim Jarboe ordered Police Chief
David Sembach to inspect
every intersection along
First Street to identify offend-
ing plants so the city could
begin clear-cutting the 20 prob--
lem spots Sembach reported.

It's becoming evident that
Jarboe lacks the acumen to
manage a child's lemonade
stand, much less a city. (The
Solantic debacle that cost tax-
payers thousands and the
inability to have trash collected
on a regular basis are just two
examples that come to mind,
but that's a different letter).
And if .the police chief doesn't
have anything better to do
than stakeout a bunch of nefar-
ious foliage,. then he should
turn in his badge and Neptune
Beach residents should open a
discussion on whether we
should continue to spend tax
money on a police department
that obviously has too much
time on its hands.
As I mentioned, Neptune
'Beach recently spent a couple
hundred thousand to land-
scape medians along Third
Street, a project that I believe
has drawn near-unanimous
praise. It's been so well-received
that residents are clamoring for
more medians to be
landscaped. But what's good for
Third Street appears unaccept-
able in other parts of the city.
In recent months Neptune
Beach has waged a bullying
campaign against oceanfront
homeowners who live adjacent
to street ends, threatening to
remove"landscaping at many
locations, while actually
butchering plants and bushes
at other spots. On Pine Street,
oceanfront homeowners John
Roberts and Todd Krohn have
spent hundreds of dollars and

man hours beautifying and
maintaining the street end, a
job the city abandoned years
ago. They, like many other
oceanfront homeowners in
Neptune Beach, have created a
welcoming access, not only for
residents, but for visitors to our
And what was the city's
They approached Roberts
and threatened to cut down his
hedge. Why? Because city offi-
cials are terrified that
landscaping may create the
impression that this is a private
Now, they plan to expand
their search-and-destroy tactics
to First Street, which I guess
will make it much easier for
elderly drivers to navigate our
streets. It's time for Neptune
Beach to halt this madness.
Instead of turning First Street
into a wasteland, our elected
representatives should be work-
ing to create a park-like setting
along First Street.
Lately, there has been an out-
cry about a proposed Wal-Mart
destroying the charm and char-
acter of our city, and rightfully
so. But the enemy within -
Neptune Beach City Council
members and bureaucrats --
are the ones seemingly intent
on destroying the character
east of Third Street.
In other words, leave our
plants alone.

each player about
$2,000 but that

"It was a

practice session
Wednesday. "We're,
going to see the U.S. play

players will also benefit from a
pair of two-hour training ses-

licensed coaches.
"I think everyone's excited

about the trip and the oppor-

face international competi-

players are all sophomores and

juniors and there's no doubt
the games, and training ses-.

becomes more than just a game. One might say
that it is a way of life, but even that sort of
description sounds hackneyed and absurd.
After all, how can you put. into words some-
thing that stirs a person's blood and psyche to
such an extent? What causes the very being and
character of a country to become so galvanized?
Other than in wartime, when a people may be
fighting for survival, confronted by a common
enemy, what else can make them feel as deter-
mined and unified?
And -what other sport can bring people from
every comer of the, earth together in celebration
and appreciation of a heart-felt sport that .they
know so well and feel so passionate about?
There is only one: Soccer. Or as the rest of the
world calls it: Football.
For many it is more than a mere game, it is their
identity. National pride and honor are at stake
with every match result.
When a national team stands on the stage of
the world's biggest, most important soccer arena,
the World Cup, it represents more than just a geo-
graphical place. It stands: for its social classes, its
culture and even its political ideologies. For one
small moment the WVorld Cup embodies the,

And what a run soccer has had! A
kickball game resembling soccer
showed up in China in the second
and third centuries B.C. during the
SHan Dynasty.
S. o The ancient Greeks and early
Romans played a soccer-like
."game" with as many as 27 players-

England and Scotland founded
the modern' game of soccer. At
Eton College in 1815 the Cambridge Rules were
devised and by 1848 these rules had been adopt-
.ed by all universities and colleges. In 1863 the
Football Association (FA) was created. The game's
official name would be Association Football.
The curious moniker "soccer" does-have some
historical legitimacy. In the 1880s, students at
Oxford University created their own slang by
-shortening words and ending them with "er."
Rugby, for example, became Rugger. The "soc"
was lifted from Association and "er" was added.
The term soccer was bom and lives to this day,

led by Jules Rimet, had the idea of bringing the,.
world's strongest national football teams together
to play for a World Championship.
The first World Cup took place in Uruguay in
1930. The original solid gold Jules Rimet trophy
was mysteriously lost and never recovered.

After three tournaments, the Cup was halted for
12 years due to the Second World War. Once it
was resumed it grew in popularity and. prestige
and soon became the world's greatest single sport-
ing event. A total of 28.8 billion viewers are said
to have watched the 2002 World Cup.
Since its: founding only seven countries have
won the World Cup: Brazil, Germany, Italy,
Argentina, England, Uruguay and France. Despite
the fact that there are many great teams in the
race for the Cup, only a handful have a realistic
chance of winning. .
But in every World Cup there are the mixers,
the up-setters, and the giant-killers. Which ones
can win it? Which ones can surprise and upset?
Next week we will take a look at the teams, the
players and'the odds.

Nease A.D. embarks on improvements

Not one to rest on his school's
laurels, Nease High athletic
director Ted Barbato has already
drafted a: to-do list of improve-
ments for next year..
The Panthers won state titles
in football and girls' soccer in
Barbato's first year at the helm,
but upgrades to. the Panther
Stadium playing surface, the
ability to host a track meet next
season and filling s6me coach-
ing vacancies top the athletic
director's list.
Improving outside facilities is
high on Barbato's list. The foot-,
ball/soccer/lacrosse field, torn
up by the amount of play it had
last year, is a case in point.
TPC at Sawgrass superintend-
ent Fred Klauk has looked at the
Nease High field and made
some recommendations.
"He said the field needs some
rest. In a high school situation,
that doesn't happen," said
Barbato, who added, "We've
been looking at trying to do a
turf deal [which was scrubbed at
a Tuesday meeting, where the'
decision was made to go with
natural grass]. That, and I want

to see attack meet here."
The last home track and field
meet for the Panthers was in the
spring of 2002. A new track was
laid inside the stadium three
years ago, but the school ran
out of money to upgrade field

Here we have state
championship teams,
and what do our facilities
look like? Not like the
caliber of the athletes we
have playing on them.

Ted Barbato
Nease athletic director
Barbato has a master plan to
improve those facilities. It calls
for the high jump area to be
located inside the track, at the
west end of the grassy oval; the
pole vault runway and throw-
ing circle to stay where they are,

and the' long jump/triple jump
runway and pit to be beside the
visiting bleachers.
", I want to follow through and-
make sure that gets done," said
Barbato. "
The Nease fields have older.
irrigation systems.
"We plan to get an assess-
ment of the irrigation system
for all fields," said the Nease AD.
"Here we have state champi-
onship teams, and what do our
facilities look like? Not like the
caliber of athletes we have play-.
ing on them."
Nease athletic programs pro-
duced two state championships,
something Barbato became
accustomed to in New Jersey,
where he worked at Sparta High
for 34 years, the final 21 as ath-
letic director before retiring and
moving to Florida.
Sparta achieved 25 state titles
during Barbato's tenure. His first
year at Nease, after 18 months
in retirement, produced the
school's first state football title
and the third girls soccer crown
in the last five years.
Nease has two open coaching
positions, as well as a need for
some assistants. The head jobs

are boys soccer and girls soft-
ball. Barbato said he's in the
final stages of making a recom-
mendation for boys soccer after
a national search produced
more than 50 applicants,
including some from Europe.
"Hopefully we can have some
completion within a week," he
.Barbato added that cross
country, with James Thomas in
place as one of its coaches,
needs some help.
"We'd love to have a female
coach, a positive role model for
the girls," said Barbato, who
advocates on-staff coaches.
"We've got some real good
outside people," he said of
adjunct coaches such as Dave
Silverberg, whose girls soccer
program is the gold standard at
Nease. "But for the athletes, to
have that contact with a person
during the day, is the best sce-
nario. If a student needs a little
support, that coach is there.
"For the most part, I'm very
impressed with the quality of
the coaching," said Barbato,
who makes it a practice to
spend time with each sport.
Barbato responded to those

Nease athletic director Ted Barbato holds the two state champi-
onship trophies Panther teams won last year in football and girls

who say Nease recruits.
"If you have an A-rated aca-
demic school, and you have an
excellent athletic program, par-
ents are going to seek out
opportunities for their chil-

dren," he said. "If they move
into the district, into our zone,
if they want to be a part of the
program, I'm all for it. I'm

Physical exams and screenings

are the keys to early detection

friend of mine was diag-
nosed with colon cancer.
This was,discovered after
he had a colonoscopy at his
wife's recommendation.
I was speaking with a mutual
friend a few days later, who
had heard the terrible news
and he asked me about what
screening tests a guy his age
should receive. He suggested
that this topic would also make
a good column. I hope this
helps you and everyone else
for that matter.
Starting at age 20 and
through your 30s, a general
physical exam is recommended
every two years. An exam of
your heart, lungs, and
abdomen would be performed.
It would also provide an
opportunity to take a look at
your blood pressure, your cho-
lesterol levels, and assess any
risk factors for diseases such as
smoking, diabetes, aand heart
Some diseases such as vari-
ous skin cancers and testicular
cancers are seen during this
decade and should be screened
as well.
For females, monthly self -
breast exams are recommend-
ed, with a physician directed
exam at least every other year.
If you are at high risk for breast
cancer, such as a strong fanilly
history, mammogram screen-
ings should be considered start-
ing at age 35. Pap smear stud-
ies should be done annually.
For those in their 40s, a gen-
eral exam should be performed
at least every two years, again

sure, your cholesterol levels,
and evaluate you for diseases
such as smoking,.diabetes, high

for the "fattening of America."
We eat at Micky D's too
much, deep fry too much, and
like our salad dressing thick.
By the way, don't even think of
depriving Americans of ice
; It's true you could make bet-
ter mealtime decisions than a,
quick burger and fries; however,
it's not the fat in those foods
that are killing us. It's the
The sugar in the foods we eat
happens to be the root of all
evil and fat. .High sugar diets
lead to high cholesterol, high
blood pressure, hyperglycemia,
diabetes, heart disease and con-
tribute to almost every other
negative health issue you can
think of. Being educated and
informed about the health risks
involved in high sugar diets is
the best way to motivate you
into making a lifestyle change
and get off the sugar.,
Sugar is found in all foods
that people eat. The body
processes sugars differently
than non-sugary food. .
"Sugars" include not only ice
cream and snack cakes, but also
highly processed carbs like soda
and white bread. When the
body consumes sugar, there is
an ineffectiveness of insulin's
ability to convert carbs to ener-
gy.- When this happens, the



body goes into.saing mode
(not the turning one we want)
and starts storing fat.,
Additionally, the body is at a
higher risk to develop diabetes
and hyperglycemia with up
and down insulin levels.
Sugars are stored within the
body as fat yes, the same fat
that we have been warned
about for decades.
Trans-fatty acids present in
fat lower good HDL cholesterol
and raise the bad LDL choles-
terol. This leads to the build up
of plaque on the walls of arter-
ies; which can ultimately lead
to a life of high bl6od pressure,
high cholesterol, heart disease,
and stroke.
Although trans-fatty acids are
a. bad thing, we do have help
finding out-how much is in the
foods we eat. The FDA has now
made it mandatory to start list-
ing these silent killers on the
nutrition labels found on every
.food in the store. Even though
they are silent they are no
longer invisible.
What do you say? Will you
start eating the right foods
now? You don't have to cut

out the foods you love just
cut down. Choose from lean
meats, fresh vegetables, nuts,
berries,; plenty of water and
whole grains.
Really look at the foods you
buy for yourself and your fami-
ly. There are more healthy
options in the supermarket
than ever before.
For example, did you know
that they make whole grain
pasta? Whole-grain pastas con-,
tain cholesterol lowering
Omega 3 fatty acids that are
also found in fish and flaxseed.
Try fat free or reduced fat
milk. Did you know that Milk
has fat burrung capabilities? It
has been shown that the calci-
um in milk may increase the
breakdown of fat.
Choose foods like no fat or
low fat cheese, cottage cheese
and yogurt. Remember that old
saying "Out with the bad in.
with the good." It definitely
applies to eating healthier.
We must reduce our depend-
ency on refined oils! Sound
familiar? The statement holds
true even for our bodies.
Eat more of the things that
are good for you like, and less
foods that are high in refined
or processed sugars. Eating
properly, coupled with a solid
exercise regime will cost money
- because you may have to buy
a whole new wardrobe. (That's
money that most people don't
mind spending.)

SBug of the month: Carpenter Ants'
Carpenter ants are very active in the summer. These large black ants not only live
in dead trees and rociing logs, but will also construct their nests in our homes.
Their nests are often tound in porch pillars, roofs, windowsills, and wood that is
in contact with soil. Each colony of carpenter ants can contain as many as 2,000
workers. They can also cause-extensive damage to foam insulation. Homeowners,
beware of ant baits as many have reported that they do not work for carpenter
% 'ants. Nader's Pest Raiders does work. Nader's Once-A-Year pest control program
includes carpenter ants. Call today for a free inspection.

Red plumes of
bottlebrusli will
bloom all season,

T ast week I talked about
adding summer color
.L.ith annuals, but there
are other ways color can be'
provided, as I have found
through many years of gar- \
dening in North Florida.
Having lived in three sep-
arate places here, I have test-
ed many combinations of
plants in an effort to have a
colorful summer landscape,
no matter what type of soil
or amount of shade I have
had to deal with.
I have found that since I
cannot tolerate working in
the heat for very long, and
because I typically am away
in lune and July, 1 must rely
on plants that need little or
basically no maintenance
once I get them established.
I do have a sprinkler sys-
tem and I don't exceed the
two-day-per-week watering
rule of the St. Johns Water
Management District.
I also have someone who
cuts the grass and trims the
hedges and a company that
fertilizes, but the rest of the
Work is done by me.
First of all, I love crape
nmOitles and have variitieties of
them in the front, on the
side and at the back. I like
to keep them trimmed,
allowing for space under-
neath for growing shorter
perennials or annuals.
I also have bottlebrush
which will keep blooming
its red plumes all growing
season if I cut off the dead
plumes when they have fin-
ished their cycle.
IMy very favorite mid-high
(about 6 feet shrub is
blooming now and it is
called chaste tree or vitex. It
has long beautiful lavender
spikes that smell like an
herb. This plant flowers pro-
fusely for about eight weeks,
then stays green. It does
require heavy pruning but it
is a fav orite of us and of the
birds. ,
These three types of
plants I would call my skele-
ton plants for these two
areas as well as the crapes
pro hiding the color in front.
In the front, I basically
rely on azaleas for spring
color and plant some annu-
als in beds. In the summer-
time, I just rely on the
healthy green of my hedges.
I do have a few old fash-
ioned roses here and there,
and if they bloom during
the summer its great, and if
not, oh well.
I have found that a few
hanging baskets of begonias
in the crapes have added
extra color and they have:
done just fine with whatever
rain we get.
I also have a few
hydrangeas which are about
to come into bloom. Other
than that, the front is not a
showpiece during the sum-
The rear of the house is
where I like to have color,
yet it gets the full blast of
the sun. The taller plants I
mentioned, crapes, chaste
tree and bottlebrush, are the
big bones, and underneath
them I have come to love
angel trumpet.
I know it is a poisonous
plant and therefore probably
I should not have it. I
rationalize it by the fact that
I do riot have any children
running around, and my
dog is not a chewer of

twice before planting one,

X-Men 3: Stronger story, darker mood

"X-Men: The Last Stand,"
the conclusion of the X-Men
movie trilogy, features more
mutants, more stunts and a
higher body count than.
either of the first two films. It
also boasts a stronger story
and darker mood than the
previous installments.
"The Last Stand" has two'
intertwining plots. In one, an
ominous "cure" for mutant
abilities has been discovered.
The cure is heralded by
some as a chance to live "nor-
mal" lives, free from the stig-
ma attached to being a
mutant. Others, who don't
see their mutations as being a
"disease" in the first place,

consider their very existence
to be threatened.
The second plot has more

personal implications for the
X-Men. One of their own,
Jean Grey (Famke Janssen),
has returned from the dead.
Grey's return does not herald
a joyous reunion, however;
she has been resurrected as
the Phoenix, a murderous
mutant of nearly incalculable

Matheson: Utilize mixture of flowering shrubs

Cont. from B-1
Also in the rear beds are
two yellow flowering shrub
like plants that stay about 3
feet in height and width, but I
have to prune them to stay
that way.
They are Marguerite daisy
and something that was an
experiment years ago called
thrysallis. I use blue plumba-
go, perennial purple salvia,
caladiums, a very carefully
sculpted area of ruellia (
Mexican petunia), walking
iris, coleus, and if I am lucky,
some hibiscus.
For some reason I have a
horrible time getting hibiscus
to flower for me and therefore
have gotten to the point of
not bothering with them.
I have some gorgeous gold-
en dewdrop and beauty berry
that the birds really like, but
the rest of these areas are just
covered in mulch to try and
keep the weeds down.
I have created an area that
has a flagstone base which is
amongst these plants. It has a
variety of poles that hold my
bird feeders and a place for a
pretty ceramic birdbath to sit.
My initial attempts were to
have something blooming all

year back there, but because,
of my odd schedule and
inability to care for the plants *
in the intense heat, I have
ended up with the most tried,
and true for me.
I get no shade at all from 11
a.m. until sunset, so this is a
true full summer sun area. I
do back up to a lake and have
gorgeous ginger lilies down
there. I also have a trellis on
either side of my porch which
has purple passion vine and
confederate jasmine growing
up it.
There are many wonderful
shrub-like plants you can use
for summertime. Here are oth-
ers that many, people enjoy
Butterfly bush
Canna lily

like a tall purple onion)

X-MEN: Story is not black and white

Cont. from BE-
super Ipowers and sometimes bizarre
appearances of the mutants and you can
substitute nearly any oppressed group.
There are no black and white issues or
characters here. The government has a
mutant in a cabinet-level position
(Secretary of MIutant Affairs), while
authorizing the use of the mutaht cure as
a weapon. "Evil" mutants, such as
Magneto, exhibit both compassion and
nobility, while Professor Charles NXaier
ilatlick Stewartr, a "good" mutant, wants
to use his telepathic abilities to place
mind blocks on Jean Grey against her
will, ostensibly to protect mankind from
The main characters from the first two
nimo-es are back, although some of them
have moved to the forefront while others
have been given reduced roles. Storm
(Halle Berry) becomes the de facto leader
of the X-Men. Iceman (Shawn Ashmore)
is required to put his romantic feelings
for the missing Rogue (Anna Paquini on
the back burner as he steps up from a
super-hero-in-training to a full-fledged
member of the team. And Wolverine
(Hugh Jackman), a character already
ruled by his emotions, finds himself

gripped by internal turmoil with the
return of Jean and her subsequent defec-
tion to Magneto's brotherhood.
"The last Stand" allows several cast
members a chance to shine. In a greatly.
.reduced role, James Marsden portrays
'Cyclops, the previous leader of the group.
as a morose, unshaven loner mourning
the death of his beloved Jean. Berry
brings a maturity and self-assuredness to
Storm, who finds herself responsible for
the leadership of both the X-Men team
and Professor Xavier's school. And Kelsey
Grammer is a standout as Hank McCoy
(Beast), a blue-furred, blue-skinned
mutant caught in a three-way struggle
among the X-Men, the brotherhood and
a presidential administration that doesn't

While "The Last Stand" is loaded with,
action and impressive special effects, the
true standout in the movie is the story.
The plot is complex without becoming
bogged down in itself. While a movie fea-

with their minds and can walk through
'walls naturally has to stretch the limits of
believability, "The Last Stand" doesn't use
the characters' mutant powers as an .

'Dead Broke' packed with A-list cast

If you've ever tangled with a
debt collection agency, you're
certainly aware it's not partic-
ularly pleasant.
Even if you'vee absolute
proof of payment, things
often don't go well: from the
agency's side, employees are
threatened, verbally abused
and sometimes, physically
. It's into this little-seen, .
shadowy world that "Dead
Broke," a murder mystery just
out on DVD, takes its audi-
Another flick that for
unknown reasons enjoyed an
extremely limited' theatrical
run, it's packed with A-list
players. Though not a flick
you'll remember for the rest of
your life (it doesn't even have
,a website!), it's a solid 98 min-
utes of entertainment!
"Dead Broke" opens with a
murder, a killing along a
grimy Brooklyn waterfront. It
occurs directly in front of the

Polite Persistence Collection'
Agency, though no one inside
its massive doors admits to
knowing anything. The police
are anonymously alerted to
the shooting by phone, but
upon arrival, find no body.
Divers are called in to search:
they assume the victim's' car-,
cass either fell or was tossed
into the open sewer-that's .
allegedly one of the rivers that
divide Gotham.
The focus then turns to the
collection agency employees,
all of whom, it seems, have
reasons good ones to lie.
: Playing the dogged lead
detective is John Glover, the
well-known, 62-year-old actor
who did a fine job in
"Smallville" and "Num3ers."
Like'real-life professional
detectives, he pays attention
to the smallest details!
Initially, his prime suspect is
67-year-old Brooklyn native,
Paul Sorvino, who, the film
alludes, has mob connections.
If one method doesn't cause
customers to cough up what
they owe, "another way" is

contemplated, some actors
Providing glamour in this
semi film noir is Jill Hennessy,
the. "pure" collection agency
employee who daily can be
seen in reruns of "Crossing
.She's multi-talented in real
life, too. She speaks Italian,
French, Spanish and German.
But when it comes to acting
prowess, it's little-known
Patricia Scanlon, who steals
the show. As Frankie, other-
wise known as the "Doberman
of Debt," she's literally the
film's attack dog. Tony Roberts
and Justin Theroux fill' the
flick's other important roles.
Edward Vilga directed "Dead
Broke." He also wrote the
story and screenplay. In all
areas, he did a better than
passable job. There's talent
here the type that's honed
only by more experience.
Though not an Oscar candi-
date, this R-rated flick is
decent entertainment. You'll
particularly like the twist at
the end!

excuse to throw all reason out the win-
dow. We can feel the pain of Magneto
when he has to leave a fallen comrade
behind as a "casualty of war." When a
father finds his son bloody and in tears
after tring to cut wings from his back,
the embarrassment and shame both dis-
play come across as real emotions. When
Cyclops vents his rage at the lake where
Jean Grey sacrificed herself to save her
teammates, he shows a grief that is real
to anyone who has suffered the loss of a
loved one.
"X-Men: The Last Stard" is, to be sure,
an action/fantasy movie. But the story'
and characters would not be out of place
in a more mainstream drama. There are
few lighthearted moments, as all sides
suffer substantial losses. The overalF .
despau of the movie is summed up best
before the final credits, as a despondent
Magneto mourns the loss of friends and
comrades. (Note: Be sure to stay through
the entire closing credits, as the fate of
one major character is hinted at in the
final scene.)
Directed by Brett Ratner, "X-Men: The
Last Stand" is rated PG-13 for "intense
sequences of action violence, some sexual,
content and language."

Fine Arts Series, "St. Paul" by
Felix Mendelssohn, will be "a
unique offering at the beach

Palms Director of Music and
Fine Arts Ronn Cummings.
"The piece is a sacred orato-
rio. The music is theatrical
and dramatic.... and tells a
Many churches don't have
the vocal resources or the
space to accommodate doing
something like this, said
"An oratorio is the same as
an opera with a large orches-
tra and a large chorus with
solists. While an opera uses
sets and costumes, an oratorio
is performed concert style,"
The' performance of "St.
Paul" is a joint effort of
Palms Chancel Choir, the
Chancel Choir from Riverside
Presbyterian Church, and
thirty-five members of the
Jacksonville Symphony
Forty members of each
church's choir will participate
in the concert. ,. .,
Andrew Clarke, Director of
Music and organist at
Riverside will conduct half ot
the concert. Cummings will
conduct the other half.

German, the ninety minute
performance will be sung in
The oratorio tells the story
of dramatic events in the life-

of St. Paul. The martyrdom of
Stephen, Paul's conversion,
and his efforts to spread
Christianity are part of the
story told by the music.
"Parts of the oratorio are
mighty and powerful. There
are also lovely pastoral sec-
tions," said Cummings.

Damage to th9 former Jacksonville Beach amusement area near the boardwalk as it appeared
after a hurricane in 1944. The Beaches Museum and History Center's newest temporary photo-
graphic.exhibit titled "Disruption and Destruction: Florida's Hurricanes in the 1920s and 1940s"
depicts the ravages of hurricanes in the First Coast Beaches during the early part of the 20th
century. Photographs will hang in the lobby hallway and portray the destruction caused by the
hurricanes of November 1925, September 1928, October 1944, October 1947 and August 1949.

Beach utility has disaster plan

Despite a myth that the
geography of Northeast
Florida protects it from hurri-
canes, experts say that this
area is definitely fair game for
"significant" storms.
And AJ Sandrik, senior fore-
caster with the National
Weather Service's Southern
Region in Jacksonville, points
to the history of tropical
storms in the area as the rea-
son why.
"When you go back into the
1900s, it was very, very
active," Sandrik said of signifi-
cant hurricanes which affect-
ed Northeast Florida and
coastal Georgia. i
"If it happened then, there's
absolutely no physical reason
that prevents a major storm
from coming in the 21st cen-
A few years ago Sandrik
headed up a study of the his-
tory of storms in the area. The
research chronologically listed
tropical storms affecting the
North Florida and Coastal
Georgia areas from 1565 to
The study shows numerous
"major hurricanes" Category
3 or greater which had "sig-
nificant impact" on the coasts
of Northeast Florida and
In particular, several storms
between 1893 and 1898
caused major damage to the
area, he said.
Sandrik points to a major
hurricane in October of 1898
as causing "8 feet to 10 feet of
storm surge in Jacksonville
Beach." The study likens the
effects of that 1898 storm to
Hurricane Hugo in 1989,
which heavily damaged
Charleston S.C. in 1989.
"They [storm surges] were
enough to cause significant
impact in Jacksonville Beach,"
Sandrik said.
Sandrik says, however, that

\ nifi cant

occur [in
the Northeast Florida area]
about three times in a centu-
ry," he said.
"So, certainly we should see
one every 33 years. And it's
been 42 years since Hurricane
Dora [hit the First Coast]."
But Sandrik and other
weather experts do admit that
the "curvature" and location
of Northeast Florida does
"provide some favorable geog-
raphy" in relation to storms.
Mark Collins, a meteorolo-
gist for First Coast News in
Jacksonville, said that the
shape and location "does
help" sort of.
"That [the curvature] does
come into play," Collins said.
"We're kind of in a safety
zone. But it's not just
Jacksonville. There are a lot of
places in Florida that are more
immune to hurricanes "
Collins said, however, that
no place is truly immune to
Ironically, however, it is
that curvature in Northeast
Florida which will actually
increase the intensity of a
storm if one does hit, said
"The curvature ensures
that storm surges will be
much more significant when
it does hit," he said. And he
says history tells us that will
"If those storms can occur
in the 1800s, and Dora in
1964, then there is absolute-
ly nothing stopping it from
happening in the 21st
Century," he said.

With hurricanes comes the
promise of extensive power
outages as tropical winds and
rain uproot utility poles and
blow out electrical grids.
The 32,000 customers of
Beaches Energy Services will
likely experience a power fail-
ure during a hurricane,
Jacksonville Beach Assistant
City Manager Roy Paxson said,
because city officials will often
make the call to shut down
power before the storm can.

"It depends on the magni-
tude of the storm," Paxson
said. "During a significant
storm system, it only helps us
to turn things off."
Paxson said officials consid-
er wind speeds when deciding
whether to manually cut
power. If a tree is felled on an
active power line, crews are
less able to remove the debris
and establish power.
If the power is off, Paxson
said crews cain easily get the
tree off the line to restore serv-
Winds below 45 mph will

usually allow utility crews to
maintain service, he said.
"If it is just a glancing blow,
we do the best we can to ride it
out," he said. "Once the winds
get above 45 mph, it's danger-
ous for crews to keep things
on." ,
In a major hurricane,
Paxson said emergency crews
will "batten down the hatches
and hunker down with the rest
of the crews until the winds

The former Jacksonville Beach pier at 6th Avenue South is
destroyed during Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

Emergency preparedness focuses on evacuation here

This colorful pole two blocks
off the beach shows where
water levels could reach
during a hurricane's storm
surge. Cherry Jones, 5-feet
tall, is barely above where
water would be in a
Category 2 hurricane. The
top shows water levels in a
Category 5 hurricane.

A mandatory evacuation is
issued to ensure the safety of
residents living in the path of
hurricane destructive.
But who decides when and
where to issue an evacuation?
Officials with the Emergency
Operations Center make the
final determination and all
evacuations are issued county-
wide by Jacksonville Mayor
John Pe\ton.
"Mayor Pevton does it as a
county function. We don't do it

Mayor Fland Sharp said, refer-

The Beach Boulevard drawbridge in Jacksonville Beach at
the Intracoastal Waterway was the,only bridge to the barrier
island that remained open to traffic in 2004 after winds over
45 mph from hurricanes offshore caused public safety
authorities to close all of the other bridges, which have a
higher profile. The bridge is being replaced this year with
higher concrete spans. State and county officials have not,
explained how evacuation will proceed if all of the bridges
are high profile and are closed when high winds blow as
storms approach.

And even without the con-
struction, a new study is,
expected to more than dou-
ble the number of hours used
as an estimate for evacuating
the barrier islands in
Northeast Florida.
Ray Ashton, director of
emergency management for
St. Johns County, said ,that
based on' a 1998 study, the.
official estimate of evacua-
tion time from the barrier
islands has stood at 18 to 20
hours. ':
The new study, expected to
be released soon, "is going to
be 40 to 60 hours," Ashton
The estimate is changing
largely because of increased
development in Florida in the'
past few years and because
South Florida evacuees can be
expected to jam the road-
ways, Ashton said.

swung precariously above the
empty streets. No cars, no peo-

Unwilling to show my
defeat, I put on a brave face,
cracked a fresh beer and turned
on the television to learn my
fate. Floyd, the news anchor
said grimly, was coming.
If landfall came as predicted,
Floyd would arrive around 5
a.m. We finally lost power, ren-
dering it impossible to count it

glance nervously at my watch.

History of Hurricanes

at the Beaches

The Jacksonville Beaches have not suffered a direct hit from a hurri-
cane, but it has been nicked by several glancing blows over the years.
In October 1898, a hurricane that made landfall.in Fernandina Beach
caused $500,000 in damage, according to "Florida Hurricanes and
Tropical Storms" by John. M. Williams and Iver W. Duedall.
Earlier that same year, a hurricane that killed 12.people and affected the Apalachicola area,
caused a 10.8-foot storm surge in Fernandina Beach.
The first storm to affect the Jacksonville Beaches in a residual way made landfall in the
Sarasota-Tampa area in 1925. -.
The Category 1 storm caused 50 deaths and $1.6-million in damages to the Tampa Bay area.
The storm's outer bands brought high winds to Jacksonville Beach, toppling a wooden roller
coaster on the boardwalk.
In 1928, a Category 4 storm (hurricanes were not given names until 1950) that-affected the
Palm Beach and Lake Okeechobee area caused more than, 1,800 deaths and $26 million in dam-
The roller coaster in Jacksonville Beach suffered additional damage as did several wood-
framed homes, including a well-known boarding house. .
The coaster was rebuilt, but realtor H.B. Daniels placed the heavily-damaged "Georgia House"
up for sale "at a bargain"'price, according to a 1928 photo.
In 1944, a Category 3 storm that hit Sarasota with 163 mph peak:winds, causing 18 deaths
and $582 million in damages, caused a storm surge of 12.3 feet in the Jacksonville area.

Look for fire hazards. Do not strike a match or
use a flame until positive that there is no gas leak.
Check for gas leaks. If you smell gas or hear a
blowing or hissing noise, leave. Turn off the gas,
using the outside main valve if you can, and call
the gas company from a neighbor's home.
Look for electrical system damage. If you see
sparks or broken or frayed wires, or if you smell
burning insulation, turn off the electricity at the
main fuse box or circuit breaker. ,
Stay away from downed power lines.
Check for sewage and water line damage. If
.-you suspect sewage lines are damaged, avoid psmng
the toilets'and call a plumber. If water pipes are
damaged, avoid using water from the tap.
Don't assume your water is safe after a severe
storm. Water supplies can become tainted. If you

don't know if the water is safe, boil it before you
use it for anything (brushing teeth, cooking,
drinking, bathing, etc.).
Watch out for animals, especially poisonous

* Trim any deadwood and weak/overhanging branches from
all trees,in your yard.

* Any dead tree near your home is a hazard. Remove it
now. Don't wait for the last minute. Diseased trees are also
susceptible to wind damage; have your tree surgeon do a
thorough walk through while they are on your property.

* Trim/prune your trees for wind. When done correctly, this
leaves the tree less prone to wind damage. HOWEVER, point-
ing or selectively removing limbs can make the tree more
vulnerable to wind damage than before, causing an imbalance
and stressing the trunk and/or specific limbs. This can be
difficult to visualize and must be done by a tree surgeon/tree
service with extensive experience.

you and your home.

* Be cautious of any service going door to door "work-
ing down the street for your neighbor." Ask to see their li-
censes and insurance. NEVER pay for services up front.

Flooding is a problem in pans
of the Beaches during heavy
rains. In the event of a hurri-
cane, water could be several
feet deep throughout the

Downed trees and tree limbs are a hazard that results from tropical storms and hurricanes. The falling tree limbs can also cause
problems with power supply as they knock down electrical lines. Above shows some of the damage that occurred in 2004 when
Hurricane Frances was offshore. The storm was one,of four that came in quick succession that fall.

Feasible to add protection to older homes

Continued improvements in Florida's
hurricane building code have been shown
to provide structures with a measurable
degree of protection.
But owners of older homes can take some
measures to shore up their structures,
according to a nonprofit organization spe-
cializing in strengthening homes.
That organization, the Federal Alliance
for Safe Homes IFLASHi, based in
Tallahassee. recently launched an education
campaign to help property o ownerss make
their homes hurricane-resistant.
At an event in South Florida's Broward
County May 10, FLASH and a University of
Florida engineer unveiled details of a new
"Retrohtness" campaign with "to do" lists
for homeowners and access to free technical
With .'about 95 percent of homes in
Florida built under' older or less strict build-
ing codes, the education campaign "is'
designed to give the owners of those homes

j.press release. ,, 1

site (www.flash.org).
The site contains suggestions for protect-
ing homes from flood damage and wind,
damage, with measures ranging from
removing dead tree limbs in the home's

landscaping to elevating the home to keep
out flood waters.
Among suggestions are the following:
Consider building temporary emer-
gency panels to cover windows and doors
that are not impact-resistant.
The site has a printable step-by-step guide
that can be downloaded.
To strengthen garage doors, which are
"particularly vulnerable to high winds,"
either replace the door and track with a sys-
tem designed to withstandd high winds and
debris or protect the existing garage door'
with an approved impact-resistant cover-
ming. .
Reinforced garage doors required under
newer building codes "proved very effec-
tive," according to the results of, a
University of Florida engineering study
released in July.
The study, which compared homes built
before and after the state's latest building
'codes and how they fared during the states'
four hurricanes in 2004, found that homes
'built with reinforced garage doors had no

hotel to 'set up operations.
"We felt that we would prefer
to be more productive. We'd
rather be doing something.
"We don't want to just be
there. We want to be part of
the solution."
He said Administrative
Assistant for the Public Safety
Department Laurie Scott will

be in charge at the school
located at 2281 South Kernan
Thompson said that the
school was built for a hurri-
cane shelter and is "very well
"It will withstand just
about anything we can throw
at it."
The cities of Jacksonville
Beach and Neptune Beach do
not man specific shelters and
instead set up operations at
locations in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville Beach Fire
Chief and Emergency
Management Coordinator
Gary Frazier said that the city
used to operate a Red Cross
shelter but has decided not to
in recent years.
"You can't guarantee it for
family members. And if you
can't do that, it makes it sort
of tough," Frazier-said.

Hurricane shelters are.
designed as a last resort,
according to Christian Smith,'
director of public support for.
the Northeast Florida Red
Cross. .
"Shelters are. available to
everyone but we always rec-
ommend to stay with, family
or friends first because you'll
be more comfortable there,"
said Smith, who was part '.of
the relief effort in Mississippi
after Hurricane Katrina.-" And
don't wait until, the last
minute to leave. I remember
before Floyd the mayor [of
Jacksonville] was on the news
and said he. was going to
order mandatory evacuation
in the morning. That night
the roads were clear. At 5 a.m.
the next morning the roads
'were clear. But by 7 a.m. the
traffic Was heavy and by 9
a.m. it was' total gridlock.

Anyone who 'can leave, early
should for their own conven-
Sience and so that emergency
Crews can get through."
'Those who opt to stay in
local shelters can expect three,
meals a day, water'arid .basic,
. first aid. People should bring"
'their personal disaster relief,
kit including toiletries,' cloth-,
ming,. bedding and personal
identification. No alcohol or,
weapons are allowed in shel-
ters. Air mattresses. are
, allowed but can take up more
space than blankets or sleep-
ing bags. .
Evacuiees are given approxi-'
miately .10 square feet of space,
per person which can become
crowded in a" shelter at full
capacity. During Hurricane
Floyd in 1999 Northeast
Florida Red Cross housed
10,000 people in shelters. The
primary shelter.locations that
'service the Beaches are
Landmark Middle School,

Sabal Palm Elementary School
and Twin Lakes Academy.
"People often pick shelters
that are closest to their
homes, but it's always good to
pick other shelter locations,"
Smith said. "The shelters clos-
est to the Beaches fill up
much faster. Last time [during
Floyd] we wdre at full capacity
at 1,000 people at one shelter
'when just 10 mile -down the
road there were only 300 pep-
.ple in. a shelter."
Up to three pets per house-
hold will also be allowed in
another section of the .shel-
ters. Northeast Florida Red
Cross. is not responsible for
pets but' specific guidelines
will be available through
Animal Control. Smith said
some of the guidelines
include registering pets in
advance for those who plan to
stay in a. shelter during an
, evacuation and providing
* vaccination records, food and

water. [More information will
be released through
Jacksonville Emergency
Management 630-2472.]
"In a shelter; environment
you can get really bored so
bring things like books, toys
or games," Smith said. "And I
know some people would like
to work so if you are interest-
. ed in working at a shelter call
now (904-358-8091) so you
can go through'the training."
The Northeast Florida Red
Cross Chapter serves 10
,counties in Northeast Florida
and Southeast Georgia, mak-
ing it the largest chapter in
Florida. Information on hur-
ricane preparedness is also
available on the chapter web-
site at www.nefloridared-
cross.org. '
"We've heard all the horror
stories but. having a plan. and
being prepared will help in a
disaster situation," Smith

History: September is busiest month of season

Cont. from page 3'
A concrete seawall, at 32nd 'Avenue
South in Jacksorfville Beach was
breached and high winds plaYed havoc
'witl the, boardwalkk, daniaging a steel
fetris wheel and'both the Jacksonville
Beach and Atlantic Beachi wooden fish-
ing piers. .
In 1947,, a Category 4 storm that
struck Pompano and caused a 21.6-foot
storm surge in Clewisfon killed 51 and
resulted in $704 million in' damages.
The bulkhead in Neptune Beach wa$
breached. In a photo, Navy; sailors are.
sandbagging the area.
And then there was' Dora' in
September-1964. .
The Categoryv2 hurricane made land-
fall near St. Augustine with peak winds
of 125 mph. Maximum storm surge was
12 feet. .
: Dora did more.than.$250 million in
damages ($1 billion iii 1990 numbers,
,dumping more than 10 inches of rain
in Northeast Florida and 23 inches near
'Coming off the -heels of Hurricane'
Cleo, "Dora struck the Florida coast at a
near 90-degree angle from the east of

St-. Augustire," according to "Florida
.Hurricanes and -Tropical Storms."
It was the first hurricane, to do'so,
north ofE Stuart,, since the Great
Hurricane oft 1880."
.At the Beaches, Dora's effects includ-.
ed a storm surge of '10 feet; causing.
extensive beach erosion. Some roads
were washed out, including a 2-mile
stretch of State. Road A1A south of
lernandina Beach .
. Both fishing piers at the beach sus-
tained major damage., The 1,200-foot-
long Jacksonville Beach pier was.
clipped by more than 600 feet.'' '
The Atlantic Beach pier also lost more
than half of its decking. .
The Atlantic Beach Hotel and an
adjoining residence also suffered major
" President Lyndon -Johnson surveyed
Storm damage near 12 Avenue South in
Jacksonville Beach with' state, and local
dignitaries in tow.,. -.
A hurricane .watch was -issued for.
-most of Florida's East Coast in Auguist
1996, as Hurricane Fran, a Category. 3'
storm, passed offshore. .
The Greater Jacksonville Kingfish

Tournament was postponed earlier 'that
summer for similar precautions.
The first storm to ever mandate a
mandatory evacuation of the Beaches
was Hurricane' Floyd i'n Septemnbier
The eye of the Category 3 storm
passed within 90 miles of Jacksonville
Beach. Waves of more thann 25 feet
pounded the Jacksonville Beach pier
before the. wooden structure broke
. apart in two pieces.
Floyd was am6ng, the largest hurri-
canes of its strength ever recorded. It
ranked ninth among the 10 most costly
U.S. hurricanes before the record-break-
ing 2005 hurricane season';'
Predicting where a hurricane might
make landfall is still an educated guess.,
One thing is-for certain: September
seems to be the busiest month of hurri-
cane -season, according to National
"Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration. Before 2005, 36 of the
64 storms classified as major hurri-
canes, occurred in September, including
Dora in 1964 and Floyd in 1999.
