Nease football fined for 'major violations'

Nease High's football pro-
gram has been fined $20,000
and placed on sLx years' restric-
tive probation for what the
Florida High School Athletic
Association termed "major vio-
lations" regarding special
inducements and considera-
tions for one player, the organ-
ization announced Tuesday.
Additionally, the school's
entire athletic program has
been placed on administrative
probation for five years. Nease

trative probation for violations

The Panthers, who complet-
ed a perfect fl0- season with

the team play games outside
Florida, teams from states
other than Florida or appear on
televised broadcasts during the
regular season, according to
the FHSAA.

authority of the FHSAA and we
will not appeal their decision,"

coach admitted to our investi-

arrangements between these

Valley man, 65,

shot on his land

A 65-year-old Palm Valley
man is in Shands Rehab hospi-
tal in Gaines'ille recovering
from a rifle wound that sher-
iff's deputies say was inflicted
by the man's would-be neigh-
bor in O'Brien, Fla.
Arpad Laszlo Balint, a long-
time resident of Roscoe
Boulevard, was shot in the
stomach Oct. 20 when he was
walking..his .vacant parcel in
Suwarumee County, said Wilbur
Burnett, also of Palm Valley,
who has known Balint 10 to 12
"He was over there looking
at it [the property], and from
what I gather from talking with
him [Balinti spoke to his
neighbor, and his neighbor
didn't want to get talked to."
The neighbor, Michael
Arthur Boyington, 59, called
Suwannee County Sheriff's
deputies, who found Balint
lying on the road and bleeding,
according to a report of the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Boyington, who is in the
Suwannee County jail charged
with attempted second-degree
murder, "said he picked up his
44 caliber rifle and shot the

victim to protect his property,"
the report says.
Boyington said Balint had a
bush ax, according to the
But the Sheriff's Office chief
deputy said this week there are
doubts about the claim of self-
"He was 100 foot from the
guy," Chief Deputy Ron
Colvin said in a telephone
interview Monday.
."The victim was not a threat
at over 100 feet away and the
defendant said the victim did-
n't make any verbal threats but
did raise the bush ax," the
report says.

Riders, DEP at odds on Guana path

Logan Lynn, 9, of Ponte Vedra pitches his first game
Saturday at Davis Park. His team, the black team with the
Ponte Vedra Athletic Association, defeated their opponents,
the white team.

A series of public meetings
on how to manage the Guana
Reserve has revealed a clear rift
among nature lovers.
On one side of the deepen-
ing schism stands groups like
the Sierra Club, active environ-
mentalists who work to pre-
serve and protect Guana land
and wildlife.
On the other side and with
just as much love for the
Guana -' are horse riding
groups such as the Ponte Vedra
Riding Club, which is request-
ing access to the Guana beach
through a "well-beaten foot
path" across from the northern
parking lot.
"We equestrians just asked to
be treated equally," Ellen
O'Brien, spokeswoman for the
riding club, said at a meeting
last week at the Guana's
Environmental Education
O'Brien sent a letter to Bob
Ballard, deputy secretary for
the Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP), on Sept. 13 outlining
three requests: access to Guana
beach from the northern park-

ing lot, permission to park
horse trailers on the grass area
next to the Guana dam site
and two picnic tables at the
dam site.
As of Tuesday, the picnic
tables have been granted, the
trailhead has been denied and
the direct access to the beach is
still under review.
At last week's meeting, more
than a dozen people stood to
support these requests on
behalf of horseback riders
throughout the area who fre-
quent the Guana trails and
All of the riders said they
share a love for the Guana's
beauty and merely want to
enjoy access to the land as hik-
ers and bikers do.
"If I didn't have the ability to
ride my horses on these trails, I
wouldn't be able to take advan-
tage of all the beauty [in the
Guana]," said Lynn Brown,
who moved to St. Johns
County three years ago from
But a spokesman for the
Sierra Club, which touts about
1,000 members in St. Johns
County, carried a message of

The Sierra Club opposes any
changes to the Guana that
would impact vegetation,
including any new trails.
The Friends of the Guana, a
group of about 700 members,
also had questions concerning
the impacts of horseback rid-
ing and the safety hazards asso-
ciated with riders crossing A1A.
Because the goal of the meet-
ing was to collect public input
about the Guana's new man-
agement plan, Guana and DEP
staff did not offer answers to
these questions.
But Ballard did offer to put to
rest a "ridiculous" rumor that
bulldozers would be used to
clear a path through the dunes.
"I've never seen more gor-
geous diness" Ballard said in
the meeting. "We will never do
anything to harm those
In a telephone interview
Tuesday, Ballard said the picnic
tables were granted as O'Brien
and the riding club requested
but the trailhead at the dam
site was denied.

Thomson defended that con-
trol, stating that Nease turned
itself in to the FHSAA when the
violations were discovered.
"Because we turned our-
selves in, I think that's one rea-
son why the penalties weren't
such that we would be disqual-

ramifications and we'll move
forward with the idea that this

is only going to make Nease
better," he said.
"Mistakes were made but
we're going to correct them,"

steps to be taken is making sure

the club wants to park their

Equestrian access. to the
Guana beach from the.north-
ern parking lot is still under
consideration. ,
Ballard said, in his opinion,
there are two "perfectly legiti-
mate" ways to access the
Guaia beach: from Mickler's
Landing to the north and from
Vilano Beach to the south.
O'Brien said *Tuesday that
both Mickler's and the Gate gas
station in Vilano Beach, which
is the closest parking area to
the south, are three miles from
the Guana beach.
As for the foot path across
from the northern parking lot,
Ballard said the endangered
beach mouse inhabits the area
and there is thick vegetation
surrounding the path.'
There is also an emergency
vehicle access to the beach just
to the'north, but it is 8/10 of a
mile from the parking lot and
it is unsafe for the riders to

travel that far along A1A.
Ballard said an equestrian
dune walkover has even been
mentioned to him, but those
are "extremely expensive" and
are not currently in the DEP's
;"L don't have the funding to
do any of that,"'he said. "Our
money needs to be spent on.

Horseback riding has been
allowed for many years on the
Guana trails Monday through
Last year, a one-year pilot
program extending equestrian
access to seven days a week
began along with another pro-
gram to allow horseback riding
on the Guana beach.
The first program expiredin
. October and the second will
expire on Thanksgi\ing Day,
according to Ballard.
Ballard said Tuesday both
programs will be extended
another year so that water
quality can be monitored for
bacteria levels from : horse.
Dave Williams, director of

beach services for St. Johns.
County, said in an interview
Tuesday that -. extensive
research on the effects of horse
manure on the beach was con-,
ducted several years ago by the
county to determine whether
horses should be allowed on
public beaches.
Williams said horse manure,
which consists of, mainly oats
and hay, virtually dissolves in
the waves and does not cause
bacteria levels to spike.
,Williams said the count\
requires horseback riders to
ride on 'the wet part of the
beach so that waves can wash
away the droppings.
"To 'this date we've never
had an issue," he said.
Williams said he does not
know how many horses are onr
county, beaches on .a daily
basis, though that is currently
being studied by the county's
Beach Services Division. No
more than 25 horses are
allowed on Guana beaches per

The Leader' Opinioni

Secret sessions shut

out the citizens

A hearing later this month to consider possible settle-
ment with those who want to open a Wal-Mart in
Neptune Beach will not be conducted in secret session.
That was the final decision of the city council, but not
before several councilors made it clear they would rather
the special magistrate's hearing, a form of arbitration
that could result in a settlement, be held at a meeting
:: closed to the public.
It would be easier if the public is not part of the
process was the essence of the council's arguments for
excluding citizens from the session.
Fortunately, the council heeded the sage advice of its
legal advisor, City Attorney Chris White, and conclud-
ed, after discussion, that the meeting will be open to the
State law is very clear that the public cannot be
Excluded from public meetings, except in cases where
the governing body is discussing litigation in which it is
"presently a party."
The city has rejected Wal-Mart's bid to open a store at
600 Atlantic Boulevard, but no litigation has been filed
so the dry is not "presently a party" to litigation.
Public interest in the proposed Wal-Mart has been
intense. Excluding citizens from a hearing on the mat-
ter at this juncture is both ill-advised and, according to
the city attorney, illegal.
"The best way to ensure that government truly repre-
sents the people it serves is to keep the government
open and'accessible to those people," the state attorney
general has said.
We agree and would remind the council that making
decisions in secret is a means to guarantee public dis-
trust in both the process and the outcome.

Solutions to homelessness need attention

To the editor:
"None of us are home until all
of us are home", these are the
words of Sister Mary Scullion,
RSNM, director of "Project Home"
and International expert on
homelessness. Taking these
words to heart, we are our
brothers/sisters keepers!
Homelessness is not indige-
nous to "the Beaches" nor

grace that needs national atten-

Hunting is violent

To the editor:
In response to Ann Von
SThron's "Hunters' daughters
don't whine" column, first I
would like to ask, what are you
talking about?
Are you supporting hunting,
* or opposing it? Hunting is no
longer needed for survival, it is
just a violent form of recreation.
Hunting has contributed-to the
extinction of animal species all
over the world, and has obvi-
ouslh contributed to the decline
of quail populations in Florida.
Hunters often shoot, and injure
animals, and then don't retrieve
them. That leaves the animals
in the wild to suffer prolonged,
painful deaths.
Biologists have estimated that
more than 3 million wounded
ducks go unretrieved every year.
Hunting accidents often injure
or kill unintended victims, such'
as horses, cows, dogs, cats, or
other hunters. Hunting is not
only dangerous, it is wuneces-

Quails are sweet birds, they
care for their young, and you
can often see them traveling in
lines with their babies. Quails
are, also tame birds,, you can
almost go up behind them and
grab them. How could someone
kill such a loving bird, and for
no reason?
Sport hunting jeopardizes
nature's balance, and it won't be
long until quails, and other
game animals become endan-
gered, or even extinct. Hunting
disrupts migration patterns,
which in turn, also disrupts
nature's balance.
I, personally, don't see how
someone could hunt, or could
support hinting. So, Dr.
vonThron, if your friend's freez-
er is filling up with quail car-
casses, maybe the solution is
not just cooking them, maybe
it's to stop hunting.

,Better retireiient optionS

To the editor:
Residents as well as the
employees of the City of
Atlantic Beach need to pay dose
attention to the details of the
responses given by the City
Manager regarding the opera-
tion of the city pension fund.
The city employees are
already paid far less than their
private industry and even gov-
ernment counterparts in similar
positions and are stuck in a plan
that mandates their participa-
tion in a long term investment
that effectively yields no inter-
est at maturity, assuming they'
vest in the plan to begin with.
Would YOU invest your own
funds in such a plan?
Well...you are! Sound familiar?
(Social Security)
And if they fail to remain in
the plan for at least five years,
the best they can hope for is to
get their own contributions
back...without interest and like-
ly with a penalty for "early
withdrawal". Makes you want
to just flock do\wn to city hall
and apply, doesn't it?
Even social security has a cost
of giving adjustment, as poorly
managed as it is. Is it asking too
much to want to at least offset

BLE. In order to even make 100
percent of your average final
compensation at a 3 percent
annual accrual you would have

to work at least 34 years and be
at least the minimum retire-
ment age and then you could
get 100 percent, but not more.
Even then, your wages would
have had to remain the same for
the best five years of your term
of employment, too.
While it is true that the bur-
den of funding any city pension
plan rests with the taxpayers, so
does the responsibility to make
wise investment choices for
your employees and taxpayers.
There are other choices avail-
able to local governments on
pension plan participation
which DO offer cost of living

Chief David Sembach.
The checkpoint ran near

There were a total of 303

At Monday's Neptune
Beach City Council meeting,
councilors said they were
impressed with the check-

Sembach if it was possible to
increase' the number of
checkpoints, rather than
holding just one annually.
"I think it's a great exer-
,cise," Councilor John
Weldon said, adding he
thinks it is a positive influ-
ence on drivers.
Sembach told the council
that it would be too costly,
but the Beaches area has
three checkpoints through-
out the year to reduce the
number of drunk drivers.

San Pablo seeks city

help to improve lot

A Jacksonville Beach elemen-
tary school is looking to the city
to help irrigate its playground
and update its play equipment.
The playground at San Pablo
Elementary on the comer of
18th Avenue North and 10th
Street is open to the public on
evenings and weekends as stipu-
lated in a grant to fund a sprin-
kler system for the school's ath-
letic field.
The school received $65,000
several years ago to install the
irrigation system. Fletcher High
School uses the grounds as a
practice field.
Kendra Robertson, San Pablo's
Student Advisory Council tSAC)
chairperson, said in an Oct. 17
letter to Mayor Fland Sharp that
school officials want permission
to tap into the irrigation system
to help beautify the campus and'
keep the playground safe.
"We are happy to share this
playground with the communi-
ty if that means receiving some
funding to update it," she said.
"In fact, the athletic fields them-
selves bring many families in
that are using it already." .
Robertson said the. play-

ground is unsafe and unkempt
without the proper irrigation.
"The lack of irrigation has
resulted, in sandy' soil with
patchy grass growth and lots of
sand spurs and fire ants," she
said. "This may seem minor but
it has become a safety issue."
According to Robertson, one
student fell into a patch of sand
spurs while chasing a basketball,
"resulting in lots of tears'and
painful pulling of each spur out
of her clothing and skin."
Fire ants prevent students
from utilizing a courtyard area
and trees purchased with grant
monies received by the PTA, are
not thriving in the sandy soil
despite being hand watered.
Parks and Recreation Director
Gary Meadors Tuesday said the
Duval County School Board is
responsible for the irrigation
system that is used to water the
practice field.
SMeadors walked the campus
with Robertson to look at the
site and provide information
but ultimately he said the deci-
sion is up to the school board.
He said he also discussed the
situation with Fletcher High
School's athletic director, Joe

commissions from the collection of taxes and fees. for the mandated State functions of the Division of
Motor Vehicles, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, as well as the Department of
Revenue. The excess revenues also include interest earned from' investments.
The excess revenue Mr. Hollingsworth has collected over the past year are a result of the tax and tag
offices operating with prudence and efficiency. Mr. Hollingsworth is honored to serve the citizens of St.
Johns County by managing their Tax Collector's Office. "I am personally accountable to each citizen
for the way we spend their money and operate their office," Hollingsworth said. "We cannot foolishly
spend without realizing we will be held accountable."
The major portion of the refund ($3,430,181.06) will go to the St. Johns County Board of County
Commissioners since it is one of the largest taxing authorities. The other taxing authorities receiving
this financial surprise are:

St. Johns Mosquito Control
St. Johns River Water Management District
St. Augustine Airport
Hastings Drainage
Flagler Estates
School Debt
Ponte Vedra Municipal Service District
Florida Inland Navigational District
St. Augustine Pon, Waterway & Beach District
Julington Creek Plantation CDD
St. Augustine Fire Assessment
Marshall Creek CDD
Sampson Creek CDD
Brandy Creek CDD
St. Johns Forest CDD
Turnbull Creek CDD
Heritage Park CDD
Heritage Landing CDD

"One of our annual goals is to increase our efficiency in operating the Tax Collector's Office. As a
result we try to increase the excess fees or unused revenues each year. We have been able to match, if
not increase, the revenues most of the years since I have had the opportunity to serve as Tax Collector,"
Holingsworth said.

This refund amount is an estimate because more monies are generated by the office and received
throughout the year from other State Agencies such as mobile home revenues received from the
Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and revenues in escrow accounts in Tallahassee
from the Vessel Revolving Trust Fund which are distributed quarterly by the Tax Collector's Office.

The total earned revenue from interest on investments for the taxing authorities by the Tax Collector's
Office for St. Johns County for 2005-2006 was approximately $657,748.53.

The total revenue earned bythe St. Johns County Tax Collector's Office was in excess of $4,657,318.27.

World Grill offers international cuisine,

attentive service at affordable prices

When he was only 13 years
old and working at the
Sherman Brothers Delicatessen
in St. Louis, Mo., Brett Harris
dreamed of someday having
his own restaurant. vTenty-
five years later, he's living his
dream as owner/chef of the
newly opened World Grill in
Jacksonville Beach.
"1 think our guests will be
-surprised at our menu and our
prices," said Brett, who has
been in Jacksonville for 11
years after working his way up
in prestigious kitchens such as
the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta, the
Marriott and Embassy Suites ..
before becoming executive
chef at the Omni Hotel in A,
downtown Jacksonville. He's
even taught culinary arts at the
First Coast Technical' Institute.
"Our lunches run about $11,
including tax and tip, and are '' ^^i
served in about 10 minutes, l.,
and dinners range from $12.95 With more than 50 years of
to $28.95," he said. World Grill's executive chef Frank Boice
appetizers and mouth-watering of the world at the newly op
desserts run about $7 each. Be
sure to ask about Yetta Seltzer's Chocolate Smetna Cake.
-"Yetta is my great-great grandmother from St. Louis, and
the recipe. has been passed down to me," Brett said.
"Smetna is the Yiddish word for sour cream, and the cake
is one of our signature desserts 'here, along with our irre-
sistible peach cobbler."
In addition to fresh food featuring fresh weekly mari-
nades, great prices and a comfortable environment, what
makes World Grill different is its wood-burning grill. "It's
.our niche and the whole concept behind this restaurant,"
Brett said. "We burn mesquite and hickory wood because it
'enhances the flavor of our food and makes it look pretty,
too." The authentic grill, which is fired up at 9 a.m. to have
it ready for lunch, burns all day and evening until the
restaurant closes.
"The wood-burning grill is also health conscious," he
said.."Although we have some items that are sauteed, basi-
cally we offer healthy choices and guests can build lunch
or dinner around a baby spinach salad with grilled fish,
shrimp, chicken or beef tips marinated in our weekly mari-
nade." World Grill also offers vegetarian, kosher and lac-
tose-intolerant items. Ask your server about these options.
But there's even more! World Grill offers cooking classes
so you, too, can learn some of the restaurant's secrets to its
mouth-watering entrees. Held on the second Monday of
every month, each class features a different cuisine from
around the world. "Our first class, slated for Dec. 11, is
called 'The Taste of Tuscany,"' Brett said. "It will never be
the same cooking,- other months we'll prepare dishes from
Jamaica, Russia, France and other regions of Italy."
The classes-a leisurely three to four hours long-are
thorough and generate lively food.-discussions, he said.
"We don't rush it because we want the class to be an expe-
rience," he said. "All participants receive instructions and a
menu, and then we bring the food. outon big platters and'

A gift certificate for one class or a series of World Grill's
cooking classes would be a perfect gift year round. The
price is $125 per person per class and includes instruction,
recipes and menus. The cooking classes offer a creative
activity for social groups, card clubs, dinner clubs, bridal
showers and business organizations, too.
It's not too early to make holiday dining plans, and
World Grill offers a classy, festive environment with a
delectable holiday menu. "We will be doing a phenomenal
plated menu from noon to 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day,"
Brett said. "It includes an appetizer, entire, choice of
dessert and coffee or tea all for $26.95 plus tax and tip."
A New Year's Eve package is also available.
"We want World Grill to be known as the place where
you get impressive service and phenomenal food," Brett
said. "Frank Boice, executive chef, and I are both center-of-
the-plate people who demand that (1) our food comes out
hot and on time, (2) our servers provide fantastic service
and (3) our menu is affordable. The next time you're decid-
ing where to go for lunch or dinner, we want World Grill
to be your first choice." A private room is also available for
up to 40 people.

Ex-MP suited for school administration

Caleb Thomas is a rare
commodity in the high
school coaching ranks: He's a
football coach who teaches
Thomas, 28, is also ideally
suited to be a high school
dean of boys someday, hav-
ing spent six years as a mili-
tary policeman in the Army,
including a year as an "MP in
Camp Bucca, Iraq.
"I loved the Army, but I'm
not a recruiter," said
Thomas, who teaches
English at Fletcher High, is
faculty sponsor of the
school's newspaper and

But if they don't have the
means to do that, than the

military can help them out."
Thomas spent more than
10 months as an MP at
Camp Bucca, one of the
largest U.S.-controlled deten-
tion centers in Iraq.
He also guarded prisoners
as a Army MP at Camp Delta
in Guantanamo, Cuba.
"We were the first MP's in
Cuba when the Taliban pris-
oners got there," said
Thomas, who put his college
studies on hold at Florida
State University to serve on
active duty after 9/11.
"We definitely had the
extremists [at Camp Bucca].
Republican Guard, fedayeen
and Ba'ath Party militia. You
name it."
The son of a former high
school football coach,
Thomas was studying

English at FSU and preparing
to follow his father into
coaching when he joined the
Army Reserve to supplement
his income.
A year later, in the wake of
9/11, Thomas' reserve unit,
the Tallahassee-based 160th
Military Police Battalion, was
deployed to St. Petersburg to
guard the ports.
In 2002, the 160th was
ordered to Cuba to guard the
first prisoners from the war
on terrorism.
Thomas returned from
Cuba and finished up at FSU,
graduating in 2003.
WVith a degree in English,
he had his choice of high
school teaching and coach-
ing jobs in the state.
He chose Fletcher because
of its close proximity to the

*An expert marksman with
the 9mm pistol, Thomas rose
to the rank of sergeant in
the Army, and was a squad
leader in Iraq.
At Camp Bucca near Basra,
he worked in one of five
prison compounds, each
containing between 300 and
500 detainees.
"It was the size of five real-
1l big football fields,"
recalled Thomas, who served
at the prison camp from

February to November 2004.
"We got a lot of prisoners
when Abu Ghraib closed
down. I wanted [to go] Iraq.
I joined the Army Reserve
because they were essentially
going to pay me to workout.
But nobody saw 9/11 com-
ing. I liked to be a cop, be
on SWAT and kick in doors,
but the only reason I'm not
is I want to have a family."
Thomas also loves coach-
ing too much, especially
football, a sport he played at
Tallahassee Godby High,
where his father was the
defensive coach in the mid-
"All the things I learned in
football, like discipline and
chain of command, all that
rolled over into the mili-
tary," Thomas said.

Nease volleyball makes state Final Four

With an attitude of, "Once
we're in the final four any-
thing can happen,' the Nease
High girls volleyball team
advanced to the state semifi-
nal round with a four-game
victory over Groveland South
Lake last Thursday night.
The Panthers downed the
visiting Eagles, 25-18, 25-21,
26-28, 25-17, to win the Class
4A Region 3-4A final.
Nease's final point, an
emphatic kill by junior out-
side hitter Paige DePriest,
touched off an exuberant cele-
bration of fans and players as
the team equalled its furthest
voyage into the postseason.
"It still hasn't hit me that
we actually won yet," said
senior middle blocker Laura
Phillips. "Nease hasn't made
the final four since 1992. It's
surreal. It's awesome. We're all
stoked that we set this as a
goal and we achieved it."
Nease rode the hot hands of
DePriest, who had 24 points,
13 kills and a dozen digs, and
Meghan Sherman, who
totalled 42 assists, 21 points
and 17 digs.
But it was far from a two-
player show. The Panthers
received major contributions
from middle blocker Christina
Vergo (nine kills), senior right
side Meghan Oakley (eight
kills), 24 digs from libero
Cierra Pillsbury, seven kills
from setter Tara Carrigan, and
Phillips' five blocks.
"Our defense and our tenac-
ity are what stood out
tonight," said Nease co-coach
Dawn Madden.
"The fact that we were in
better shape was significant,
too. I mean, we dug some
amazing balls on defense. We
played out of our minds on
defense and I accredit a lot of
the plays that we made to the
fact that we are so condi-
tioned. They busted their tails
all summer and when we got
into season we continued to
work out hard. I think it
showed out there,"
The Panthers were in posi-
tion for a three-game sweep of
South Lake, but the visitors
rallied in a tension-filled third
game that saw six lead
changes down the stretch. The
Eagles eventually prevailed,

third game because our serv-
ing was off and we tried to
minimize the errors but it did-

definitely showed them and
we put it away." -..

run of six straight Nease
points as the home team took
a 7-1 lead it would never relin-
quish. South Lake closed to
within 14-11, but Nease put
together another run to take
seven of the next eight points
and a commanding lead that
gave way to a finish as anti-

climactic as the previous game
had been up in the air.
"We've played better at
times this season, but it
always depends,' Madden said.
"You have to play to the team
that you [are facing]. This is
the best defense we've seen.
So this is not the best we've
ever played, but we've also
never seen a defense like
[theirs]. South Lake is the best
defensive team we've come
The post-match celebration
was hardy because the
Panthers know they have a

monumental task ahead of
them in the semifinal round:
Fort Lauderdale's Cardinal
Gibbons, 30-0 on the season
arid holder of 17 state volley-
ball championships.
Madden said players and
coaches won't have much
time to enjoy Thursday's \ic-
"We're immediately think-
ing ahead," she explained.

But Phillips said the
Panthers know volleyball
matches are deided,on the
court, not in the history
"We'll play Cardinal
Gibbons and we know they're
an extremely competitive
team," Phillips said. "If we
bring our best game, we'll give
them a good game. We're
going to play hard no matter
what. We're going to give
them a run for their money."

Panthers achieve perfect regular season

Crisp passing game lifts

Nease over pesky Bears

in war of district champs

A perfect regular season has
been achieved and now its full
speed ahead for the Nease
High football team as it seeks
to defend the Class 4A state
championship won last
December in Miami.
The Panthers open the 2006
postseason Friday night at
home with a regional quarter-
final contest
But last \ .
Friday it was
all about the ,
Panthers' quest
for their first
10-0 season
since 1992.
Bartram Trail,
the District 2-
5A champion,
was supposed
to present a BEARS
stiff challenge PANTHER
for Nease, but
junior quarter-
back Ted Stachitas was nearly
flawless in shredding the Bears
defense for 269 yards and a
pair of TD passes in the 24-17
victory .
"I thought Stachitas was
brilliant in passing," said
Nease head coach Craig
Howard. "I mean, he was 8-
for-10 in the first half, then
we came back out in the sec-
ond half and he went 6-for-7
down the field. It was high-
percentage stuff and Ted [was]
reading the coverage so well.
That's what our game plan


Bartram Trail had a couple
of opportunities to make a
statement early in the game,
but two drives from deep
within Nease territory result-
ed in only three points -
Ryan Brookins' 25-yard field
goal and a missed attempt
from 15yards out.
"Wind affected the kicking
game more than our offensive
strategy," said Bartram coach
Darrell Sutherland. "We were
really looking
more at what
they were
doing defen-
sively and just
trying to take
advantage of
anything we
might be able
to get that

halftime, but the Bears
responded with a 80-yard scor-
ing drive to start the third
quarter. The drive was sparked
by Bartram QB Kyle Parker
who finished the night 13-of-

one touchdown. Parker scam-

Jaguars cornerback Rashean Mathis (27) breaks up a pass
intended for Titans receiver Brandon Jones Sunday.

Last week after a tri-
umphant road trip by the
Jacksonville Jaguars in
which they clamped down on
Donovan McNabb and the
Philadelphia Eagles, the ques-
tion was which one of Jack.
Del Rio's teams would show
up to greet the Tennessee
Titans. Not even Del Rio him-
self had the answer.
Then on bleak Sunday, a
day more fitting for the kind
of disaster the Titans used to
serve upon Jacksonville, the
years suddenly faded away
and the old stars of the Mark
Brunell-Jimmy Smith-Keenan
McCardell era showed up
playing under the names
David Garrard, Maurice Jones-
,Drew and Fred Taylor. The
Jaguars erupted for a a 37-7
.slamming of the once-feared
boys from Nashville.
Actually, Titans coach Jeff
Fisher was the villain who
used to- delight in picking at
Jacksonville.. But let by-gones
be by-gones. Coach Fisher is
probably a nice guy and, actu-.
ally, he wasn't poking more
fun at Jacksonville than any-
one else does, so let's just con-
sider the sources.

i o


Now, about the "new":
Jaguars. Did they handcuff the
Titans Sunday because it was
just their week to shine? After
all, the Jaguars; have played on
and off all season.
Did .the new look of Garrard
account for most of the
offense, or was he just the
lucky recipient of an old-time
offense suddenly coming back

recovers from his serious
injury he will again be the
leader of Del Rio'steam and
never doubt it.
Few fans have ever had the
chance to talk to David
Garrard in a quiet moment
away from.the crowd and
game. They would be: pleased
to know he is a good-natured,
fine athlete and very savvy. All
these years on the sideline
haven't rusted his brain or
caused his muscles to atrophy.
Most of all, Garrard hasn't
kidded himself about his role
with the Jaguars. He knows
he's still No. 2 as long as
Byron Leftwich is available
and that is as long as Owner
Wayne Weaver and chief of
staff James Harris are there.
They call the shots in this sit-
uation, not Jack Del Rio.
Now what about the Jaguars
Defense against Tennessee?
The Titans were playing in
their "second home" as Fisher
used to call Alltel Stadium, but
on Sunday the Nashville boys
looked like they didn't know
what hit them. As usual,
Rashean Mathis had his week-
ly steals, picking off two of
rookie Vince Young's heaves.
And as usual, Rashean gave

credit to the linemen for the.
pressure they put on an inex-
perienced quarterback.
Question; How come the
Jaguars don't play like that
every week? Maybe Del Rio
should hypnotize his players
on the road and tell them,
"You're getting sleepy ...
you're playing at home. You're
in Alltel Stadium ..." It's
worth a try.:
Let;s see what happens next
week at home against a Texans
team that ran roughshod over
the Jaguars just a few weeks
