Some residents of Marsh Landing,
looking for a "neighborhood feeling,"
organized the private community's
first July 4 parade, which was held
"We're hoping this will become an
annual event," said Karim Crowley, the
newly added director of recreation and
community for Marsh Landing's
recently expanded master board.
"We're trying to revamp the neigh-
borhood community feeling in Marsh
Landing. We're trying to do more
recreational activities. We're trying to
be more family oriented and focused.
"We thought, if we started with
activities like this on a regular basis,
we'd get that neighborhood feeling
we're looking for," Crowley said.
More than 200 adults and children
took part in the parade, which was led
by a St. Johns County fire truck.
A Cub Scout color guard was there
for the opening ceremonies, which
included the playing of patriotic songs.
St. Johns County Sheriff's Office repre-
sentatives were there for safety finger-
printing of children. And a disk jockey
spun records and kept up a line of pat-
The parade made two circuits around
the perimeter of Marsh Landing
County Club's parking lot.
Gene Roos, one of Marsh Landing's
security guards and a 22-year Na\' vet-
eran, who served with the Seabees in
Vietnam and Desert Storm/Desert
Shield, was the parade's grand marshal.
Roos, who started with the Marsh
Landing security group in 1994, served
in Vietnam from 1968-1971. He left
the Navy after Vietnam, then went
back in again in 1980 and served in
Desert Storm and Desert Shield aboard
U.S.S. Leyte Gulf.
The event was staged by the Marsh
Landing master board, which recently
expanded by two members, one of
which was Crowley.
"We think there's nothing better
than having a little patriotism, honor-
ing our folks, all the military who are
abroad, and celebrating Independence
Day," said Crowley.
Organizers said they were pleased
with the event and with the turnout, a
key element of deciding whether to
bring the parade back next year.

Young said at the Coalition meeting that the county's utility

That plant will convert brackish water, which is deep-

beginning of next year.
Several residents in last week's Coalition meeting suggested
that the bottling plant find an alternative water source as well.

There are 18 condominium
projects with a total of more
than 575 units in the pipeline
that will exceed the 35-foot
height limit in Jacksonville
Beach and several others are
fighting for the same chance.
In addition, about a dozen
claims have been filed with the
city by developers declaring
their intent to seek legal relief
in Circuit Court from the city's
35-foot height restriction.
The restriction, which went
to a vote in after being pushed
by a citizen group known as
Beach Watch, went into effect
in November 2004, immediate-
ly after it was approved by
Jacksonville Beach voters.
Three developers have filed
suit against the city, seeking
vested rights to proceed with
projects that were stalled by
the height referendum.
"Some may go further than
that, some may not.aall," City
Attorney Stephen Stratford said
when asked about the remain-
der of the claims and whether
the notices will lead to law-
suits. "At this point there are
only two in court."
Projects that obtained a
building permit prior to the
effective date of the height
restriction are not limited to 35
feet in height.
Those that did not file for a
building permit before the
height limit took effect can
only go higher than 35 feet if a
judge orders the city to grant a

to help students
It is one of the best annual assistance programs
offered at the Beaches Back to School With BEAM.
Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry is already
collecting donations for its annual clothing drive. It's
a great example of locals helping locals.
The nonprofit organization will hold its 13th
Clothing and Shoe Drive from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
July 29 to help needy Beaches families with school-
age children get the children ready for school.
If you have gently used clothing appropriate for
schoolchildren of all ages and sizes -'your dona-
tions are welcome.
Also welcome are cash donations that will be used
to fundBEAM's dental program for needy children
and purchase school and dental supplies, underwear,
socks and shoe vouchers.
Backpacks and school supplies such as markers, col-
ored pencils,, pencil bags with a zipper and paperback
dictionaries are also needed by the thousands of low-
income children at the Beaches, organizers said.
Donations will be accepted at the BEAM offices at
850 6th Ave. S., suite 400 through July'28.
Donated clothing, backpacks and other items will
be sorted July 28 at the Beach United Methodist
Church Life Center at 325 7th Ave. : 1. :
BEAM project chairperson Karen Wolfson has over-
seen the project for years, getting thousands of.chil-
dren ready for school. She describes the project as
mission.work to be done in our community.
She is right.
Helping low-income parents get their children pre-
pared to attend school by properly outfitting and
equipping them is important work.
"Back to School with BEAM is essential because'
many families now depend on BEAM to help with the
cost of getting their children ready for school and for
their child's dental care," BEAM reports.
Over 2,142 of children at the Beaches live below'
the federal poverty leiel in homes with incomes at or,
below $15,000, according to BEAM.
Church groups and civic organizations are encour-
aged to collect donations and volunteer during the
giveaway. Call 241-2326 for information or send an

Grateful for my opportunities
M ost women remember
their firsts a date,
the prom, a kiss ...
I confess that I do not recall
any pleasurable moments in
'my life when I was young,
Not because my brain atro-
phied, but because the circum-
stances at the time of my
youth were difficult. It was
after World War II and I was
busy with work and survival.
All I remember from my ado-
lescent years are the hardships
I suffered on imy first job.
S:I was 14 years old in 1950,
living in post-war Germany,
when .[began to work. I had
been a good student and,
hoped to educate myself, but
my mother, a 31-year old war,
widow with two young chil-.
dren, had different ideas.
In January 1945, Mutti (my
mother), my 10-year old,
brother,- and I; were evacuated
from Breslau, our hometown
in Silesia, because the Russian
front was coming nearer.
Overcrowded trains, carrying
scared and hungry women
and children, took us away
from the:immediate danger of
SAllied air raids. After four-
weeks in a refugee camp and
one brief stay with a family in
Goerlitz, we settled in Hof, a'
small city in northern Bavaria,
where the only work available
to my mother was in a factory.
Every day Mutti complained
that if she'd learned some-
thing practical, she would
have been better able to sup-
port us. Her favorite saying
was: "A trade never lets you go
hungry," and pressured me to
become a dressmaker.
Vacancies for dressmaker
apprentices in Hof were filled,
but there were openings for
tailors. Though I would have
preferred learning office skills,
I told my eighth grade teacher
that I'd take any sewing job
and was sent to "Herr
who was head of the tailors'
union. After a brief interview,
he informed me that I was
going to be his "Lehrling"
"I've got it, I've got it" I
shouted when I came home.
Proud 'because I. was the first
girl in the city to enter that
male domain, I was ignorant
of what awaited me.
. For the next three years I.
worked from 8 a.m. 'till 6 in
the evening during the. week
and 'till 1 p.m. on Saturdays:
By the time, I walked home
and helped Mom with house-
hold chores, there was little
time left for leisure. activities.
"-My workplace 'was in the
home of my boss, in a room 9
feet by 12 feet, separated by a
curtain from the kitchen. I
hated the cooking smells per-
meating our work area, mainly
because Mutti could not afford
the kind of meat simmering
on the stove, teasing my taste
buds. All we ever ate was fried
bologna and hamburger meat.
More difficult were the
irons. They weighed about five
pounds, weren't electric, and
were heated on the kitchen-
stove. While I used one,
another was warming. Since
we placed a wet cloth on the
material to prevent scorching,
frequent changing to a fresh
hot iron was essential.
The sewing-machines were
relics, operated by foot pedal.
It took some time to master
them, especially since I didn't
have a machine at home on
which to practice.
Not only was I an appren-
rice studying tailoring, I was a
slave to my boss's wife who
openly expressed her dislike of.
, me. She's like the wicked step-
mother and hates me because
I am young and .cute, I
thought, ard treats me like a
servant. I washed their floors
and windows, shoveled snow,
ran errands, and walked miles
to deliver finished suits and'
coats to clients, some of
whom rewarded me with.
small tips. For my Cinderella-
like drudgery I earned the
equivalent of $1.25 per week
for the first year, $1.88 the sec-
ond, and $3.13 the third year.
The highlight of my three
years of indenture was that
once a week I was given time

got my longed-for education,
became an educator, and
taught for 25 years.

Child found wandering near
Mayport Road prompts police
investigation at AB trailer
The Department of Children and Families
(DCF) are investigating an incident in Atlantic
Beach Friday involving a two-year-old boy
wandering alone within 10 feet of Mayport
Road during morning traffic, according to a
Atlantic Beach Police later, while investigat-
ing the incident, found the child's 6-month-
old sister in a back bedroom of a nearby trail-
er, inside a stroller with no supervision,
according to the report.
The investigation revealed that the 23-year-
old father of both children left the girl at the
trailer with two men both of whom police
later found sleeping while he went to the
, store to get baby wipes, and the boy playing
with a neighbor's 6-year-old son, the report
said. The neighbor's son later denied that he
saw the 2-year-old that morning, according to
the report. '?'. rl .... .Li
Police are awa'iting c ihplti'on of the DCF's
report before deciding whether to file charges.
Police around 8:44 a.m. were called to a
trailer park at 120 Mayport Road, where a city
public'work's employee had followed the 2-
vear-old who he.had just observed walking
along West 2nd Street "approximately 10 feet
from Mayport Road." The city worker caught
up with the child who was standing alone in
the parking lot of the Harbor Bar, 160 Mayport
Road, and followed the child to the trailer
park, according to the report.
It was there the city employee asked the
child where his "mommy" was, but got no
response. The child later walked into one of
Police soon arrived and observed the unsu-
pervised child playing with the front door of
the trailer. The officer knocked on the door
and the child opened lit, according to the
report. In the trailer the officer found two
men, ages 22 and 25, sleeping in different por-
tions of the residence. When questioned, both
men said they knew who the child belonged to
but that they did not know that the child was
in the house. Both men said they were not
responsible for watching the child, according
to the report.
But one of the men pointed police in the
direction of an adjacent trailer where he
thought a "babysitter" was supposed to be
watching the 2-year-old. When police ques-
tioned the 33-year-old woman, she said that
she was not supposed to watch the child until
between "12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m.," according to
Police then contacted the children's'mother
'who arrived at the scene arid told them s he left'
both children with their father so she cduld go
to work, according to the report. That's when
police found the 6-month-old girl in the trail-
When questioned later, the father told
police that he told the 22-year-old man' who
police found sleeping in the trailer that he was
going to the store. The 22-year-old told police
that he "vaguely remembered" the father men-
tioning for him to "keep an eye on his son,"
But that he wis "half asleep" at the time.
The 33-year-old neighbor told police that
she believed the father had been living at the
trailer with the two children for the past week
or so, according to the report.
Police use Taser on man
Grant Allen Ness, 28, of St. Augustine was
arrested June 28 and charged with aggravated
battery with a'deadly weapon and aggravated
assault at an apartment in the 300 block of 32nd
Ave. S., according to a police report.
SPolice said Ness met the victims, two women,
at a bar in PonteVedra Beach and the three of
them left together and went to the home of one
of the victims.
According to police, one of the women said
Ness became enraged when she rebuffed his sex-
ual advances and struck her repeatedly in the
head with his fists and hit her in the chest with
a chair, knocking her to the floor where he
kicked her several times in the head.
When the second victim attempted to inter-
vene Ness punched her several times in the head
and threatened her with a kitchen knife, police
reported. The victim was able to knock the knife
out of his hand..
Ness struck the first victim in the head with a
cutting boardarid straddled her chest and began
choking her with both hands, police said.
SThe second victim was knocked to the floor
and lost consciousness when she kicked him off
of her friend, police said.
A witness heard the commotion and observed
Ness and called 911, police said.
Police reported they observed Ness inside the
residence just after 2 a.m. running away from
officers as they ordered him to the ground. After
a brief struggle, police struck Ness with a Taser
and secured him. Both victims were transported
to the hospital for treatment.

Hour-long hit shows such as "Crime

"CSI," also give viewers unrealistic

"It's nice to have the spotlight on you.
But those shows also give you a skewed

Enforcement (FDLE) in Jacksonville, said
"We can't solve cases in 48 minutes. In
the real world, it takes a lot longer."
Tucker was among a handful of FDLE

Get the Rest You Deserve at
Bedtime USA in Jax Beach
Ahhhh. You're heading east across the
Intracoastal and already find yourself in
beach mode. One of the best things
about living at the beach is sleeping at
the beach. And there's one thing that
makes sleeping at the beach even better -
and that's sleeping on a mattress tailored
to your individual preferences, says
Bedtime USA owner and factory-trained
and -certified mattress specialist Dave
Family-owned and operated and cele-
brating four years in business in
Jacksonville Beach, Bedtime USA is your
mattress headquarters. Dave and his staff
have the expertise and inventory you
need to help you find the right mattress
at the right price.
S"We are not a chain, yet we are one of
the only stores in northeast Florida and
southeast Georgia that carries such a
complete line of mattresses and bedding
products," said Dave, who himself has
more than 20 years of experience in the
business and has lived at the Beaches for
seven years. "We have more than 40
mattresses on display, and we'll help you
find the one that's just right for you -
and your budget!"
No matter what type of mattress you're
looking for, Bedtime USA most likely has
it. The list of brand-name products avail-
able is impressive, including mattresses
by Tempur-Pedic, Simmons, Englander,
Ther-A-Pedic, and Restonic and futons
by Adonis Furniture and Night and Day
"We carry all seven models of the pop-
ular Tempur-Pedic brand including the
GrandBed and the RhapsodyBed often
described as the "Cadillac" of mattresses
because of its extravagant design and
unsurpassed luxury," said Dave. "No
matter what type of mattress you prefer
- a natural latex mattress, a \isco-elastic
memory foam mattress, a traditional
innerspring mattress or any combination of these, we
carry it," said Dave.
The importance of a good night's sleep becomes appar-
ent when Dave reminds customers that they'll spend one
third of their lives in bed. "So at Bedtime USA customer
comfort is our no. 1 priority comfort in a mattress and
comfort in its price," he said.
"Because we have so many mattresses in our inventory,
we can offer our customers the most comfortable mat-
tress available in the most comfortable price range for
them," he added. "For example, we have twin sets for as
low as $199.95 and queen sets for as low as $299.95.".
Bedtime USA also sells Tempur-Pedic mattresses at the
Lowest price the manufacturer allows, which means twin"
Tempur-Pedic mattresses start as low as $699.
But Bedtime USA has more than the mattress of your
dreams (pun intended). "We also carry 20 different mod-
els of adjustable beds plus bed frames, platform-type
beds, headboards, futons, futon covers, pillows, bolsters,
bed pads, mattress protectors and even some 'beachy'
decorative items," said Dave.
"Adonis Furniture and Night and Day Furniture manu-
facture some of the best futons available," he added.
"They offer 80 different designs of futons, and we show-
case 15 models in our store, not to mention more than
300 fabric samples from SIS Fabrics, a leader in designer
', .' .

But Bedtime USA offers even more than wide selection
and variety, according to Dave. "We also provide a level

er chains and that makes us different. At Bedtime USA
we take care of our customers, work with them one on

Atlantic Beach's Karina Pet-

exposure in the pages of FHM
magazine due on newsstands
Petroni, 18, is featured in a
pictorial entitled "Swell

surfers Daize Shayne and

In a brief FHM article, Petro-
ni recounts a 2003 tournament
in New Smyrna Beach in which
sharks were spotted near surfers
as they were competing.
"When I was coming in, this
guy was screaming at me from
sand, 'Don't get off your
board!" Petroni is quoted as
saying. "Then I saw what he
was yelling about. Two fins
were racing straight toward me.
I paddled so hard I was still
paddling when I hit the sand."
Over the weekend, Petroni
was defeated in the semifinal of
the Mr. Price Pro Junior surf
competition in Durban, South
Africa. The teen was the
defending women's pro junior
