Ponte Vedra-Palm
Valley/Rawlings received kudos
Wednesday from Bob Thayer, CEO
of Goodwill in North Florida, after
Thayer experienced firsthand the
good will students at the K-5 ele-
mentary school in Ponte Vedra
Beach radiate.
Thayer was on the receiving end
in the Rawlings cafetorium as stu-
dents and teachers alike brought in
donations for Goodwill, an annual
service-oriented campaign for the
PVPV/Rawlings students.

"They've been over 90 percent
participation for the last three
years," Thayer said as he coordinat-
ed the cafetorium process, assisted
by fifth graders Corinne Quiggle
and Zach Wawrzyniak, members of
the school's Early Act club.
"We've not seen this kind of
turnout in any other school.
Absolutely the No. 1 school.

Rawlings, coordinating the outside-
the-school collection process that
saw bags upon bags of donations,
along with rugs and other items,
being dropped into bins with

Albert Aftoora of Ponte Vedra Beach, chair
of the appointed board, told commissioners

been "interesting," a characterization that
Chairman Tom Manuel of Ponte Vedra
Beach said was understated.
"Based on some of the [county's utility
company] acquisitions, I'm sure it's been
more than interesting," Manuel told Aftoora.
Manuel was referring to the county's
recent purchase of two utility companies in
Ponte Vedra Beach: St. Johns Service Co. in
2005 and Intercoastal Utilities last year.
The initial price suggested for each of
those utilities caused friction among resi-
dents of Ponte Vedra Beach, and a former
chair of the authority, another Ponte Vedra
Beach resident, resigned at least in part in
June 2005 because he said he felt intimidat-

Some Ponte Vedra-Palm Valley first graders pause with their stuffed animals

George's Music Springing the Blues
Festival is expected to bring big dollars
. to the Beaches this weekend.
Hotels, restaurants and retail shops
will all benefit from the three-day music
festival held at the SeaWalk Pavilion in
Jacksonville Beach.
Jill Sprowell, executive director of the
Beaches Chamber of Commerce,
Thursday said the thousands of people
that attend the festival every year help
maintain the Beaches economy during a
nationwide slump.
"It is great to bring that caliber of vis-
itor to the Beaches," she said. "They stay
in hotels, dine and shop. People come
from all over the country."
Festival founder Sam Veal said
Springing the Blues has evolved from a
music-based event into a diverse, com-
munity oriented festival that targets a
variety of demographics.

Palm Valley business helps create a showcase

"Beetle Bop" is one of the
newer children's books writ-
ten and illustrated by Denise
Fleming, who will give a free
program Saturday at the
Ponte Vedra Beach Branch
Library. Fleming's use of
strong colors are not always
the ones that nature choos-
es, but they help her convey
a mood and movement for
her works. See story, A-2.

Palm Valley Nursery has
been in business less than
two years, and already it's
taken on a very visible;
unusual job creating a gar-
den for this year's Symphony
Guild Designer Showhouse
and Gardens.
"This is unique to
Jacksonville because we're
featuring gardens, so it's a
house and garden tour," said
Laura Mathewson of Ponte
Vedra Beach, co-chair of the
Showhouse with her hus-
band, Doug. "The gardens
are in the English country
Gardens are one thing
that's new about this 32nd

showhouse, an English-style
country manor situated in
Pablo Creek Preserve, at the
south end of San Pablo Road
off Butler Boulevard.
The gardens being created
include herb, shade orchid,
perennial border and cloister.
It's the latter that gives the
first showhouse opportunity
for Palm Valley Nursery,
which celebrates its second
anniversary in August. They
are creating the cloister gar-
"It's a courtyard area which
is divided in half by easy liv-
ing and English garden
space," said Tom Bixler. "Our
job basically is to develop the
English garden space and
blend that theme with the
easy living space.

"When you're in landscape
in general, every single time
you produce a product,
you're marketing yourself,"
said Bixler.
"This is an opportunity to
do one product that a whole
lot"of people are going to see,
as opposed to a lot of prod-
ucts that relatively few peo-
ple will see."
The latest Symphony Guild
Showhouse opens to the
public April 19 and closes
May 11. The showhouse is
the primary fund-raiser for
the Jacksonville Symphony
Guild, of which Laura
Mathewson is president.
Many who've been
involved with setting up this
year's showhouse have a his-
tory of doing so, and some

Children's author and illus-

present two programs
Saturday at the Ponte Vedra
Beach Branch Library.
In 1991, Fleming turned
her unique style of papermak-
ing into colorful characters
for her award-winning chil-
dren's book, "In the Tall, Tall
Grass." Seventeen years later
she's still turning out popular
Her programs, to be given
at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., are
sponsored by the Friends of
the Ponte Vedra Library.
Fleming said her papermak-
ing is "wet, messy, and won-
derful," noting that the medi-
um "requires that you be up
to your elbows in brilliant
"In the Tall, Tall Grass" is a
story based on summer after-
noons spent with her daugh-
ter in the woods and fields
near her Toledo, Ohio, home.
She depicts "the hot sun,
the drone of bees in the grass,
birds in berry bushes,
grasshoppers and crickets
bouncing at our feet," and she
said she uses "strong colors,
not always the colors that
nature chooses, but colors
that convey the mood and
movement of a particular
creature or moment."
Among the author's 16
other books is "Beetle Bop,"
which came out last fall.
Her newest creation, "Buster
Goes to Cowboy Camp," will
be released in May.

Hugh and Frances Keiser of St.
Augustine, creators of the Pelican Pete
series of books, will talk about their chil-
dren's books.

Although her books are
readily identifiable by the dis-
tinctive artwork, Fleming
spends nearly as much time
on the words for the books.
"Once I get the idea, I start
working with language, form
(rhymes or no rhyme), and
little sketches and doodles,"
she is quoted in a 2007 inter-
"I have my little doodles
and lists and lists of good
words. Words that are fun to
say. Words that feel good in
the mouth, like meadow.
"I'm very aware of the

rhythm of the book and I read
out loud as I write. I like to act
out my books as I read them-
do a lot of body movement-so
I try to think of words that
would be good for body

of what the youngsters were

Blues fest in Jacksonville Beach in 18th year

- COUNTY, from A-1
Service lawyer.
The County Commission later agreed to reimburse that
chairman, Victor Martinelli, for legal fees after the com-
pany filed a lawsuit to get the records.
John Schwab, a county employee who has served as
executive director of the Water & Sewer Authority since
2003, said Thursday that dissolving the authority is "a
matter of fiscal responsibility."
Revenues have fallen as the number of private utilities
has fallen, Schwab said, so "it's a matter of dollars and
When the authority began its work, there were 12 pri-
vate utilities in the county, he said. Three remain, he
said. The authority's budget is funded from franchise fees
paid by the private utilities, he explained.
The authority's annual budget -. which was about
$200,000 when seven utilities remained in 2003, Schwab
said is now down to about $18,000.
The water and sewer board has certain required meet-
ings, and Schwab is retiring June 15.
"That on top of the fact that they're down to three [pri-
vate utilities]" means it makes sense to dissolve the board,
he said.
"The regulation of utilities is an extremely complicated
[and].... very unusual animal," Schwab said.
He said that consumer complaints one of the issues
the authority deals with have not been a problem with
the three remaining utilities: Camachee Cove Yacht
Harbor, North Beach Utilities and Wildwood Water Co.,
all in St. Augustine.
Those companies have a total of about 2,000 customers,
but Aftoora told commissioners the water and sewer
authority members "think that the county ought to retain
responsibility" for overseeing any of those company's

that it is not likely the county can retain some jurisdic-

community. We bring the
world to Jacksonville Beach."
Several outer festival events
such as the Surfing the Blues
contest at the pier and a 62-
mile Tour de Vilano bike ride
allow producers and partici-
pants alike to give back to the
community that has hosted
the three-day festival for the
last 18 years.
"This festival has just
grown into a really dynamic
event," Sprowell said. "We get

a lot of calls at the chamber
about the blues fest and the
Visitor's Center sees a dramat-
ic increase in calls."
Paul West, who heads the
Aqua East Surfing the Blues
event, said the festival pro-
vides a great opportunity for
citizens to make a difference
on a local level.
"Now is the time more than
ever to bring good strong
entertainment and some-
thing positive to the commu-

nity," West said. "We really
appreciate what they are
SMayor Fland Sharp said he
recalls when almost two
decades ago Veal approached
the City Council with an idea
to produce a blues festival.
"We thought he was crazy
but he persevered. It seems
like another lifetime ago,"
Sharp said.
"Jacksonville Beach is a
very different place 18 years

ago. It has changed fo the bet-
ter. The blues fest has been a
part of it and we are very
proud of that."
Guitarist Ed Cotton, who
was the featured performer
and educator with the Blues
in the Schools program that
exposes school-age children
to blues music said the festi-
val is vital to the community
because it provides a positive,
enriching environment for
the entire community.
"Hope is the most impor-
tant thing that an art form
can give to a listener, espe-
cially in these dffficuf ~files "
we live in. But they 'are, no
more difficult than the times
that Robert Johnson lived in
or Muddy Waters," Cotton
"Everybody's experience is
the same yet different.
Everybody has difficulties but
everybody has hope. A little
bit of that glimmer of happi-
ness that we all find in blues
music. People like Sam Veal
and the musicians that will be
playing at the festival are
keeping that alive."

Science Center helps many youth


To the editor:
I am a retired Deputy from
the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office. I was assigned to the
Mayport area for twenty-
seven years and during that
time had the opportunity to
watch many kids grow up and
become adults.
I was able to see so many
struggling young men and
women become successful in
business, school and educa-
tion because of the great staff
and learning experience given
to them at Mayport Marine

To the editor:
[Re: 4-2-08 letter by Jim
Walker "People should scream
about misuse of public land"]
What's "absolutely ridiculous"
is the gimme mentality that
arises every time someone
comes up with what they per-
ceive to be better usage of part
of the Guana River State Park.
So now they need to give up
"a narrow band of land" for the
four-laning of 210 so that we
"living, breathing, tax-paying
humans" won't be inconve-
nienced during times of heavy
traffic or hurricane evacua-
tions. [As Walker said]: the tax-
.payers of Florida paid dearly
for this land. Not just the tax-
payers in Ponte Vedra, but ALL
of Florida. For preservation. So
that future generations will
have the opportunity to see
what Florida used to look like
before it became one huge
If pieces had been carved
out for special interest groups
a--"athe "need" arose, there
would be nothing left now.
The problem here is the fact
that, for years now_ thousands
of new homes have been bVilt
with no thought to concur-
rency issues. The roads simply
can't handle the load. Yes,
even people in my circle of
friends are amazed at this lack
of foresight on the part of our
elected officials.
This particular problem
should have been addressed
before Sawmill Lakes was ever
approved. Now, there's ndt
enough land to take from that

you refer to, have you ever

but also some of the most
beautiful oak hammocks I've
ever seen. Wildlife is abun-
dant, and their signs are every-
where. I'm never there alone. I
always run into other riders,
hikers, and bikers. On week-
ends I know to get there early
because parking can get tight.

Is it time for Jax Beach to sell Beaches Energy?

S selling Beaches Energy
would be a no-lose
proposition. Jax Beach
would make more money
each year, -the City of
Jacksonville would receive
additional revenue, power
costs to Beaches Energy cus-
tomers would decrease, the
existing employees would
all make more money, the
City staff could focus on
running the City instead of
a low-profit electrical com-
pany, and, potentially, each
resident would get a big
check from the profit on the
According to the budget
document for the current
fiscal year, Beaches Energy
will have a loss of about one
million dollars on total rev-
enue of about $100 million.
This is after transferring
about $3.5 million to the
City's general fund so actual
profit is about $2.5 million.
Interestingly, interest
i itomei-f o Beaches Energy:
-from..cash (about $31 -ril..
lion) in their enterprise
fund is about $2.9 million,
so all the profit is interest-
on money in the.bank.
From a buSiness stand-
point, a.Z.5% profit on $100
million in sales is not very
If our electricity was
cheap you could understand
it. However, even after
adding the 10% tax to JEA
charges imposed by the City
of Jacksonville, Beaches
Energy costs 11 to- 13%
more for residential service
than JEA and 21 to 35%
more for commercial serv-
ice, depending on the
amount of power used.
I guess it also wouldn't be
so bad if we were just serv-
ing Jacksonville Beach.
It is kind of hard to swal-
low that the City makes
businesses in Jax Beach sub-

sidize the electric bills of
residents of Ponte Vedra,
Palm Valley and Neptune
According to the budget
document, some of the
problems are increasing
maintenance costs, decreas-
ing number of customers
per employee, and, most
importantly, increased costs
for natural gas our main
. source of power.-'..-,-;::
SIt also states that :.the
demand charge (fixed cost)
of wholesale power from
F MPA [where we buy power]
will go up significantly" and
"changes in the electrical
industry due to global
warming concerns will have
a significant impact on City
revenue sources". So it looks
like our rates are going to go
even higher in the near
Now, as in Atlantic Beach,
JEA would add a franchise
fee of about 6% to the
power bill. This money
would go to Jacksonville
Beach. On total charges of
$100 million, this would
generate $6 million for
Jacksonville Beach each
year, quite a bit better than
the $2.5 million income
projected for this fiscal year.
As a bonus, the City of
Jacksonville would realize

around $9 million/year in
income, at no cost to
Beaches Energy customers.
Additionally, even with a
10% tax to the City of
Jacksonville and the 6%
franchise fee, power costs
would decrease 6 to 7% for
current residential cus-
tomers and from 10 to 25%
for commercial customers,
again based on the amount
of power used.
Beaches Energy debt is
about equal to cash-in-hand
so that would be a wash. I
don't know what Beaches
Energy is worth but for dis-
cussion assume it is worth
one years total income,
about $100 million. Jax
Beach could put that money
in the bank and generate an
additional $5 million/year
or so. Combined with the
franchise fee, this would
total around $11
million/year: way better
than the projected $2.5 mil-
iTon profit this ear. -
, i' t.EriiYel/; -the City'
could divide the profit
amongst the residents: if we
made $100 million on the
sale, we could give each res-
ident $4,500 or $13,500 to a
family of three.
Perhaps the biggest bene-
fit would be to remove the
distraction of a small com-
munity trying to run a large
utility. Now they do a good
job on running Beaches
Energy, but at what cost to
the rest of the City's respon-
If we sell Beaches Energy,
maybe Mr. Forbes could
spend more time on trying
to lower our crime rate
instead of worrying about
replacing power lines in

To the editor:
The Leader (4/2/08) pub-
lished a letter from Mr.
Walker about widening
Mickler Road from a two to
a four lane highway begin-
ning at the round-about
east to A1A.
Conversion of this prop-
erty will in most likelihood
never happen. His letter
[has] misperceived remarks
regarding Guana.
Our community has been
down this road (no pun
intended) for years. Most
notable, the Pbnte Vedra
High School land squabbles.
The inaccuracies are as
1. "The Guana River
State_..Park .organization,
whatever or whoever that
is" -
Guana has not been a
State Park since 1999. GTM-
NERR stands for Guana"
Tolomato ..-Matanzas
National Estu'arine Research
Reserve;'one of 27 such
research reserves in the
United States. The reserve is
a partnership, co-managed

by the Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection (State) and
NOAA (Federal) agencies.
2. "You can kayak from
one end of Guana to the
other and see not a living
human being".
Sometimes that is the case
but many times you see hik-
ers, horseback riders, bicy-
clists, hunters, and oh yes,
other kayakers. Please don't
try to. discredit the impor-
tance of the NERR (National
Research Reserve) by the
absence of human sighting.
This insinuates that no one
enjoys using the land.
3. If you had an accident
in the middle of the day in
Guana and needed help you
would never be found".
The GTMNERR has login
sheets with free maps show-
ing well marked trails at
each public entrance but
you should carry a cell
phone. I don't believe I have
ever heard of anyone going
into the GTMNERR and not
coming out.
4. "it is our land".

GTMNERR is owned by all
of the taxpayers and not by
or for the exclusive rights of
Ponte Vedra or St. Johns
County residents.
In summary, acquiring
and converting GTMNERR
land for the purpose of
widening a road will most
likely never happen. It has
been my experience that
when people make the time
to explore and discover the
wonders of the GTMNERR
they feel fortunate to have
this great national and his-
torical resource in our back
yards (not a four lane high-
way) and return often.
One last observation; as I
travel east from Nocotee
Parkway across the great
expanse of the Palm Valley
Bridge onto our two lane
country road, it just feels
like home.

Watch for crooks
We continue to see residential
and vehicle burglaries on the
rise. Many thieves gain entry
simply by opening unlocked
doors and windows. I urge each
of you to remember to lock your
doors and windows in an effort
to stop these burglaries.
Another tool in combating
crime is through the
Neighborhood Watch Program.
By banding together with law
enforcement, neighborhoods
are more apt to prevent crime
before it occurs.
This community-based pro-
gram has been proven to deter
The concept for the program
is simple: Neighbors looking out
for neighbors. Any community
resident can take part, young
and old, single and married,
renter and home owner. Just a
few concerned residents, a com-
munity organization or the
Sheriffs Office can spearhead
the effort to organize a
Neighborhood Watch.
Members learn how to make
their homes more secure, watch
out for each other and the
neighborhood, and, most
importantly, REPORT activities
that raise their suspicions to the
Sheriffs Office. You can form a
Neighborhood Watch group
around any geographical unit
such as, a block, apartment
building, park, business area,
housing complex, office or
marina. Watch groups are NOT
vigilantes. They are extra eyes
and ears for reporting crimes
and helping neighbors. The
programs also builds.pride and
serves as a springboard for
efforts that address other com-
munTrfy concerns, such as recre-
Sation for youth, child care, and
affordable housing.
If you are interested in form-
ing a Neighborhood Watch in
your area, and one does not
exist, form a small planning
committee. Set a date and loca-
tion for an initial neighborhood
meeting. Then contact the
Sheriffs Office and request that
a Crime Prevention Officer
come to your meeting to discuss
your specific community's prob-
lems and needs. Contact as
many of your neighbors as pos-
sible and ask if they would be
willing to meet to organize a
Neighborhood Watch group.
There are several concrete
steps you should take to make
the organization successful.
Contact the Sheriffs Office for
help in training members in
home security and reporting
skills as well as for information
on local crime patterns. Select a
coordinator and block captain
who will be responsible for
organizing meetings and relay-
ing information to members.
Some things to look and lis-
ten out for. Screaming or shout-
ing for help; someone looking
into windows of homes or
parked cars. Unusual noises.
-Property being taken out of
houses or building where no
one is at home, or the business
is dosed. Cars vans, or truck
moving slowly with no lights or
apparent destination. Anyone
being forced into a vehicle. A
stranger running through pri-
vate yards or alleyways. A
stranger sitting in a car or stop-
ping to talk to a child.
Abandoned cars. Most impor-
tantly try to obtain a tag num-
ber and direction, of travel of a
suspect and pass that informa-
tion to the Sheriffs Office.
Remember, don't investigate
these problems yourself. Report
these and -other suspicious inci-
dents to the Sheriffs Office as
they are happening.
Once you get started, there is
virtually no limit to the innova-
tive ways to combat crime and
increase involvement of your
community. Your neighbor-
hood will not only become safer
and more secure, but will have
the added benefit of neighbors
brought closer together, with
opportunities to rekindle the
sense of community that many
areas of the country have lost
over the years.
For information, contact our
Crime Prevention Section at the
Sheriffs Office at 810-6603.

Valley/Rawlings Elementary School.

Crowds at JB getting bigger, police say

Restaurants, shopping and
miles of coastline make
Jacksonville Beach an attractive
.But it's the amount of avail-
able parking that is considered
the city's biggest draw, accord-
ing to officials.
Jacksonville Beach Mayor
Fland Sharp Monday said an
estimated 20,000 visitors
flocked to the beach last week-
end just the beginning of
what is yet to come.
Sharp said warm weather and
free parking make Jacksonville
Beach a hot spot for people
seeking a little fun in the sun.
"For better or worse, we are it.

We are the only beach city with
any parking at all. If you didn't
live here where would you go?"
he said.
Jacksonville Beach Police Sgt.
Tom Bingham said officers on
patrol can expect heavy traffic
and large crowd volumes from
now until August.
"This is only a sign of things
to come," he said. "As long as
the weather holds up, people
are going to flock to
Jacksonville Beach for the park-
Sharp said the congestion
caused a backup from South
Beach Parkway to the Casa
Marina hotel at 1st Street and
6th Avenue North.
The slow moving traffic made
it difficult for motorists to move

quickly through some parts of
the city but it also lessened the
opportunity for one impaired
driver to cause further damage
in the pier parking lot.
According to a police report,
the man struck a vehicle while
attempting to park and drove
away before exchanging infor-
mation with the other driver.
The victim called police to
report the hit and run and
while the officer was complet-
ing the paperwork, the suspect
was spotted still circling the lot.
Police said the man appeared
oblivious as to why he was
stopped and denied any
involvement in the crash
although blue paint matching
the victim's car was found on
his vehicle.

"In the middle of the day he
blew a 3.0. Police said he was
one of the drunkest people they
had ever seen," Sharp said, not-
ing that the man had not fre-
quented any bars but rather had
an empty bottle of liquor in the
vehicle. The legal definition of
intoxication is .08.
"It was a good thing traffic
was moving at 5 mph. If he hit
someone at least he didn't hit
them very hard."
Bingham said with the three-
day blues festival this weekend
at the SeaWalk Pavilion, the
beach is going to be busier than
"We've got spring break on
top of that," he said. "Every
year gets busier than the year

"We're the largest volunteer
donor base to the symphony.
We're proud of that,"
Mathewson said.
, The Colliers were asked to do
"something unique and differ-
ent, not the average
Mediterranean-style home
we've been building in Florida.
We looked at many architectur-
al styles, finally settling on the
English country manor," said
Elwood Collier.
Their research took the couple
to England two years ago. They
also visited U.S. communities,
such as Charleston, S.C., with
English architecture.
"This is the fourth year we've
had the opportunity to build
the Symphony Showhome over
the 35 years we've been build-
ing," said Collier, whose compa-
.ny builds exclusively at the
Beaches and in the Duval
County Intracoastal area.
The house will be available for
sale after the Showhouse is com-
pleted, Rebecca Wells of the
Jacksonville Beach-based
Callaghan Agency said.
"The technology inside is
incredible," Mathewson said.
"Even though the house is
designed to look as if it had
grown over the centuries, it is
modern inside."

Technology is virtually invisi-
ble in the showhouse.
"It is nothing that would look
out of place in an old home,"
Collier said-of small keypadstin

at home in a house like this. All
lighting, audio, video through-
out can be handled from one
The house also has an eleva-
"It's an old English walnut
elevator inside to match the
walnut floors in the parlor and
banquet hall," said Collier, who
expanded the detail that's gone
into the house.
"The amount of detail is in
the millwork throughout the
home: the archways that are all
paneled, the heavy crown mold-
ings and baseboards, wood-pan-
eled rooms, wood-paneled ceil-
ings, wainscoted stairways," he
"There's just woodwork and
millwork throughout the entire
home, like you'd see in an old
English country manor, where
they did the really highly
detailed woodworking. We
don't see that in a lot of the
homes being built today, so we
tried to showcase that type of
work in this home."

The new Jacksonville Beach
post office is still planned for
the Beach Plaza shopping cen-
ter but lingering questions
about the location exist for
both city and postal officials.
Plans to relocate the facility
from its current site at Third
Street and 7th Avenue North
to the shopping center on
Beach Boulevard were
announced last year.
But Mayor Fland Sharp
Monday said that city officials
are still in the dark about
whether the project will actu-
ally come to fruition.
"We know less about this

said. "It is disappointing that
this is the way it is."

complaints from some of the
Sharp said despite the assur-
ance of Rosenberg, who took
over the job as Postmaster in
October 2007, city officials
are still grasping for informa-
tion without much result.
"I think he was perfectly

apparently he wasn't on the
inside," he said. "I am con-
vinced they don't know what

T [ -is week marked the last
opening game at Yankee
Stadium. This season
marks the last for the Yankees
in their historic Bronx ball-
park. It's kind of sad seeing
another sports monument fall
this year (Brett Favre retiring
was the first). What's next,
Boston tears down Fenway
While I'm from New York,
I've never been to Yankee
Stadium, but hope to make a
trip before this season over ...

Speaking of baseball and
the season starting this week,
who will be the focus of
steroid talk? With Barry
Bonds not on a team, will
there be no asterisk-marked
signs or syringe-littered fields
at which we can all shake our
heads in shame? Or will
everybody continue to pick
on Roger Clemens and, the
newest target in Jose
Canseco's tell-all tale, Alex
Here's hoping for a clean
(no pun intended) 2008 base-
ball season...

This just in: Researchers at
Sthe New England Historic
Genealogical Society have
linked Presidential hopeful
Barack Obama to New
England Patriots quarterback
Tom Brady. Obama and Brady
are reportedly 12th cousins,
twice removed...

Watching the NCAA
Tournament, I can't help but
realize how much more
exciting this format would
make college football.
Sometimes there are those
great upsets, and, for the first
time it's like this season in
which all four No. 1 seeds are
in the Final Four. The NCAA
should abandon its Bowl
Championship Series. I know
it's a little early to start
thinking about football
(although spring games are
right around the corner) but
when you think about how
high schools and the pros all
use a playoff format, why
doesn't college? Why not
take the top two teams in
each conference and place
them in a bracket? Maybe
this way Ohio State can bow
out in the-Sweet 16 instead
of getting pummeled in the
national title game ...

This whole war going on
between NASCAR owner Jack
Roush and Toyota is getting
old. Roush seems to be noth-
ing more than jealous about
a team that in its second year
of Cup racing is winning
This battle started last sea-
son with Roush worried that
Toyota's deep pockets were
going to allow it to be a force
in the league soon, some-
thing it has done this season,
largely due to hooking up
with Joe Gibbs racing.
It has escalated recently
thanks to a missing sway bar,
something that Roush clams
was "stolen" last September
at Dover International
Speedway by member of a
Toyota-backed team.
The New York Yankees
seem to have spending power
over other teams in their
sport, yet they haven't won
any championships in a good
while ...

Funny thing that made me
laugh this week: A political
cartoon showing a couple of
inmates playing baseball
with one on the phone
telling the guys "Hey, we
might be getting Clemens!"
Yeah, okay, it's not really
funny, but it did make me
smile for a minute.

(Part one of two parts)

Over the past 30'years, Mike Loyd has
had the opportunity to be around some
of the most innovative minds in college
and professional football.
Names such as Bud Wilkinson, John
Cooper, Jim Hanifan and Jerry Rhome.
During a five-year playing career in
three different pro leagues, Loyd, a for-
mer quarterback, played behind such
notable signal callers as Jim Hart,
Warren Moon and Doug Williams.
Loyd gleaned a wide range of knowl-
edge from a plethora of coaches and
players, but the most influential figure
in Loyd's life over the past quarter cen-
tury was a legendary high school coach
in Florida named Billy Livings.
"Out of all the guys I played for or
coached under, Billy Livings was proba-
bly the best," Loyd, the newly appoint-
ed head football coach at Ponte Vedra
High School, recalled in a recent inter-
"I played for some great X and O
guys. But when.I think back now after
21 years as a head coach myself, Billy
Livings was pretty special."
One of Florida's all-time winningest
prep coaches, Livings was the head foot-
ball coach and athletic director at Vero
Beach High for 26 years.
He also was the first person to hire
Loyd as an assistant coach when Loyd
was between stints as a pro quarterback.

Circa 1980: Former St. Louis Cardinals quarterback Mike Loyd (No. 14) passing
against the New Orleans Saints at the Super Dome. The Cards won 40-7.

"Coach Livings told me he was going
to make me his quarterback coach. But
when I got down to Vero he said, 'I'm
going to make you secondary coach
because you have to learn a lot more
about football,' Loyd recalled with a
"I was around him for two short sea-
sons, but there was no one who impact-

ed me more than Billy Livings. He's the
reason why I choose to coach high
school football, because when you
coach high school football, you're
doing it for all the right reasons."

Classic dropback passer
Loyd, 51, was a star athlete in his
hometown of Joplin, Mo.

Growing up, Loyd thought he was
going to be the next "Pistol" Pete
Maravich or Walt Frazier in basketball.
A power forward in high school, he
averaged 16 points a game and led
Joplin Memorial High to the state play-
offs as a senior.
"I remember that he hit two free
throws at the end of a game to win the
district title for Memorial in 1974,"
Charles Nodler Jr., an archivist at
Missouri Southern State University,
recalled in an e-mail.
On the football field at Memorial,
Loyd played linebacker, donning jersey
No. 51 for his hero, Dick Butkus of the
Chicago Bears.
"I didn't move to quarterback until
the middle of my freshman year," Loyd
"Everybody in my family had been
linebackers. My dad and uncle were all-
state football players."
A big-armed quarterback, Loyd was a
first-team all-state selection as a senior
and on the radar screens of major col-
lege recruiters.
Former Big-Eight Conference schools
such as Kansas and Missouri coveted
Loyd, who stood almost 6-4 and
weighed more than 200 pounds.
"My coach at Tulsa University, F.A.
Dry, told me, 'Go get Mike Loyd,' "Jerry

offensive coordinator," said in a phone
interview from his Buford, Ga., home.

Panthers suffer first

district baseball loss

Not everything in sports is
supposed to go perfectly.
The Nease High baseball
team found that out the hard
way Tuesday night in a 3-1 loss
to District 5-4A rival Palatka.
With the loss,
which was the
first for Nease
(11-6, 9-1 dis-
trict) this season
in the district
after running up
a 9-0 record, the
Panthers still
hold control
over the top
seed, but now
the advantage
over Palatka is
just one game.
Despite hold-
ing that one-game lead,
remaining games are still as
important as ever, according to
Nease head coach Travis
"It matters, absolutely,"
Chapman said of the remain-
ing schedule. "We're battling
for'the number-one seed with
those guys over there (Palatka)
and the top seed gets a first
round bye and that's impor-
tant. They're all big games now
until the last game of the sea-
Nease struggled from the
start against Palatka, a team the
Panthers defeated 9-3 at Palatka
earlier this season.
Palatka piled up three hits
and a run in the first inning off
starter Will Haga. Trevor
Kennedy hit a double and
scored on a single by Clint
Warwick to put Palatka up 1-0.
Nease had trouble at the
plate as well at the start, going
hitless against Palatka starter
Charlie Overturf.
As Haga settled down in the
innings following the first,
Nease was able to pick things
up in the fourth when Overturf
walked Jared MacNaught to
open the inning. MacNaught
worked around the bases,
reaching second on C.J.
Thompson's single and third
when Haga grounded out.
MacNaught scored on Travis
Allen's sac fly to tie the game 1-
Palatka took the lead for
good in the sixth inning, tak-
ing advantage of some Nease
fielding mistakes.
Warwick doubled and
Brandon Bennett followed with
a single. The throw to first was
off target, allowing Kevin
Davis, running for Warwick, to
cross home. Chase McNeal
drove in the other run off a
double to give Palatka a 3-1
Nease was unable to make
anything else happen in the
following two innings, taking
its first district loss of the sea-
"Will (Haga) threw a decent
game but it wasn't his best
game," Chapman said. "We
gave them a few extra at-bats
and they gave us a few extra at-

bats and they took advantage
and got a couple of more runs
than we did."
The loss drops Haga to 4-2
this season. The right-hander
struck out four batters and
allowed 10 hits in six innings
on the mound. Andrew
Stricklin finished out the game
in the seventh
Overturf dom-
inated the
mound for
Palatka, holding
Nease to just
three hits and
striking out five
in the complete-
game win.
Mike Mantia,
Justin McKenna
and Thompson
each picked up a
hit for Nease.
"That Haga kid's a good
pitcher, he did a real good job,"
Palatka head coach Matt
McCool said after the game.
"He settled down a bit and
made us battle but fortunately
they made a mistake and we
we're able to take advantage of
"You have to against a team
like that. Obviously they were
9-0 until this point. Coach
Chapman has done a great job
turning that program around.
They're a great program all the
way around."
While the win was nice for
Palatka, McCool understands
catching Nease in the district
will probably take some luck,
along with hard playing.
"We have three district
games left and they have two,
so we're a game behind them,"
McCool said. "So they're all
very important games from
now on.
"If they (Nease) go out and
continue to play like they're
capable of playing, then it
probably won't matter that
much for us. They're a good
program and they're going to
out and make team work
Following an 8-1 non-district
loss to Providence on
Wednesday, Chapman said the
focus would swing back to dis-
trict play and another key
matchup as the Panthers trav-
eled to Pedro Menendez High.
"We've got to play as a
team," the Nease skipper said.
"It's another big district game
on Thursday. It's a big game."

LOYD: Many prominent coaching mentors

Continued from page A-8

up in 1964, eventually recruited
Loyd to Tulsa, but Kansas won
the bidding war for Loyd out of
high school.
.Under head coach Dan
Fambrough, the Jayhawks were
a passing team when Loyd
arrived in 1974. A year later,
Kansas became a running club
under former Bear Bryant assis-
tant coach Bud Moore.
The scheme change would be
Loyd's first setback on the col-
lege level.
"In those days, everybody was
running either the wishbone,
the split-back veer or the I-for-
mation," Loyd recalled.
"I could move a little bit, but I
was a classic dropback passer.
That's the reason why I moved
around in college."

A student of the game

In 1975, Rhome convinced
Loyd to transfer to Tulsa, where
the Golden Hurricane led the
nation in passing, and featured a
wide receiver named Steve
"Tulsa was throwing it all over
the yard," Loyd said. "I had to sit
out because of the transfer, but I
still worked out every day with
Steve Largent during his senior
The next season, Rhome was
offered a job coaching quarter-
backs for the fledgling Seattle
Seahawks, one of two NFL
expansion teams.
Tulsa brought in John Cooper
as the head coach in 1977 and
with him came the two-tight-
end, split-back veer.
"I recruited Loyd to Tulsa and
it broke my heart that I couldn't
coach him," said Rhome, who
coached 25 years in the NFL and
was inducted into the College
Football Hall of Fame in 1998.
"I remember calling him and
telling him that. Mike was very
intelligent. He was a student of
the game. I'm glad he picked
himself off the canvas."
Loyd wasn't down for long.
After alternating at quarter-
back at Tulsa in 1977, Loyd saw
greener pastures closer to home.
"I knew if I wanted to play
NFL ball, I needed to go where
they threw it," said Loyd, who
transferred to Joplin-based
Missouri Southern as a senior
and led the Division II Lions in
passing (1,314 yards) and scor-
ing (36 points).
Loyd started the last eight
game for MSSU (5-4-1) and
caught the eye of pro scouts. In
1979, he signed a free agent con-
tract with the St. Louis
"I went to.mini camp at Busch
Stadium. Bud Wilkinson was the
coach my rookie year," Loyd
recalled. "Jim Hart was
entrenched as the starter. I had
to beat out six other quarter-
backs in camp to be the third
The next year, the Cardinals
drafted Rick Lisch out of Notre
Dame. Loyd beat Lisch out for

Blues tribute to Iglauer

Producers of the 18th
George's Music Springing the
Blues Festival are changing it
up a bit this year by celebrating
the music of legendary blues
label Alligator Records.
Sam Veal, the founder and
executive director of the free,
three-day event, staged today
through Sunday at the SeaWalk
Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach,
said the tribute stems from the
strength and dedication of one
man's vision. ..
"Tfis yeair we are paying trib-
ute to Alligator Records and
their founder Bruce Iglauer,
who 40 years ago took an
unknown itinerant blues artist
off the front porch of his house
in Mississippi and through his
own chutzpah put together a
recording of this fellow and
took him in his station wagon
around to colleges, clubs and
festivals," said Veal, a Ponte
Vedra Beach resident.
"To this day when you ask
him he always carries around a
recording of this blues artist
especially when he flies
because if they give you the
bad word that your plane is
going down, when he goes to
meet his maker he wants to the
listening to the great
Mississippi Fred McDowell."
A conversation with Iglauer
will be conducted at 12:45 p.m.

mate West Stage, where Iglauer

George Hines, CEO of
George's Music Superstore,
attends the festival bearing his
name every year., He speaks
passionately.about the annual
festival that celebrates the clas-
sic American blues music.
"There is food, shelter and
music. Those are the three
basics in life. I can't imagine
life without music and we are
really proud to be involved in
Jacksonville Beach with what
we believe is the premiere if
not the best blues festival in
the United States," Hines said.
"We are honored and we are
privileged. I can tell you after
this many years that it keeps
getting better-and better."
Hines said he considers blues
a "positive music" that enter-
tains-fans of all ages. Programs
such as Blues in the Schools
help expose children to the
American art form.
Blues artist Ed Cotton,
whom Veal called a "remark-
able artist and educator," was
the featured performer this
year, visiting several local
Cotton said children natu-
rally gravitate towards any-
thing that has a little "boogie
woogie" to it like the blues.
"Blues is an important
American art form that com-
municates better than any sin-
gle style of music. It encom-
passes various stylistic ele-
ments of other style of music,"
Cotton said.
"Without the blues there
would be no jazz. Early coun-
try music and a lot of early
rock is based on blues. It's
probably been the most influ-
ential art form."
Teaching blues in the
schools is important, Cotton
said, because of the message,
an "inherent optimism" that
shines through the music.

"There is a corhmon miscon-
ception that the blues is all
about sadness and loss,"
Cotton said."
I One thing you will find if
you look at blues lyrics is that
there may not be an actual res-
olution to the problem but
there is the hope of it.

Local girls model in faith-based fashion show


Four local girls will model in the Pure
Fashion Show at 2 p.m. on Saturday at UNF's
University Center.
"Pure Fashion is a faith-based program that
encourages teen girls to live, act, and dress in
accordance with their dignity as children of
God," according to Pure Fashion's website
www.purefashion. com.
West beaches residents Racquel Doty, and
Clarissa, Jessica, and Victoria DeGrafft will be
among the thirty-one models in tomorrow's
fashion show.
The girls are members of St. Paul's Catholic
Church in Jacksonville Beach and all are home
schooled. Doty is in the 10th grade, twins
Clarissa and Jessica DeGrafft are in the 11th
grade, and their sister Victoria is in the 9th
The fashion show is the final event in the
Pure Fashion Model Training Program for girls
who are 14 through 18 years old.
This is a national program that guides
young ladies to become accomplished and
competent leaders who value the virtues of
purity and modesty, said Carol Carlson,
Sponsorship Coordinator for Pure Fashion
Pure Fashion Model Training helps young
ladies to become "not just a model but a role
The girls participating in the program met
monthly beginning in October of last year.
"Every month a virtue is highlighted," said
The training was spiritually and scrip-
turally guided. Everything was brought back
to faith... and respect for your body," said
The Pure Fashion Model Training curricu-
lum includes community service, learning
about etiquette, public speaking, dressing
tastefully and modestly, as well as runway
walking, hair, make-up, and photo shoots.
New friendships with other girls was one of
the benefits of participating in Pure Fashion
mentioned by Victoria DeGrafft who said she
would "definitely recommend it to others."
Guest speakers provided information to help
the girls learn to handle themselves with poise
and grace in different situations.
Charlene Shirk, Director of Public Relations
for The Players Championship, shared insights
with the girls on public speaking.
She challenged the girls to quickly impro-
vise a short talk which they then presented to
the entire group, said Jessica DeGrafft.
Shirk also explained how the way a person
dresses for college interviews and in business
situations can affect their success, said Carlson.

Dillard's and other local businesses were
sponsors of the program and donated both
"time and talent," said Carlson.
Jacksonville is one of over a dozen locations
within the United States where there will be a
Pure Fashion Show this spring, according to
the website.
Tickets are $30 to $45 for Jacksonville's
Pure Fashion Show and can be purchased at
www.purefashion.com or at the door at the
University Center at 12000 Alumni Drive.
Pure Fashion, a project of Mission Network
within Regnum Christi in the Catholic
Church, will offer Model Training again next

and girls regardless of church affiliation can
participate in Pure Fashion, said Carlson.
