land buy

gets OK

The Jacksonville Port
Authority Monday agreed to
purchase several acres of prop-
erty in Mayport Fishing Village
for a possible cruise terminal
"to keep its options open."
Stressing there are no current
plans for a proposed cruise ter-
minal, the seven-member JPA
Board of Directors unanimous-
ly voted to purchase 4.5 acres
in Mayport for approximately
$9 million from Vestcor and
Matt Roland.
Negotiations are ongoing
with Safe Harbor Seafood for
additional property to accom-
modate a terminal.
"We did this at this point to
preserve our availability. It
does not mean it's a done
deal...I think the board saw this
as an opportunity," said Nancy
Rubin, JPA's director of com-
munications and public rela-
Rubin explained that JPA is
still waiting on "the pieces of
the puzzle to come together"
regarding various issues such as
funding and environmental
"I know people are anxious
about it and it may seem like a
first step and frankly, it may
be but the board did not vote
on the construction of a termi-
nal, they just voted on the pur-
chase of the property," Rubin
JPA is "in touch "with several
cruise lines that are interested
in the Jacksonville area,

Roscoe t be The Players' relief valve'

. The Palm Valley Community
Association once again is teaming
up with The Players Championship
to ease traffic congestion during
next week's tournament.
Roscoe Boulevard will be used as
a "relief valve" for traffic going to
and from the tournament at near-
by TPC at Sawgrass, according to
Garry Phillips, vice president of the
community association and liaison
to The Players.

During times of heavy traffic -
anticipated Saturday and Sunday,
May 10 and 11 vehicles headed
toward the tournament will be
directed from State Road A1A south
on Solana Road to an entry gate off
Roscoe Boulevard, according to a
news release.
No vehicles northbound on
Roscoe Boulevard will be allowed
to enter the Roscoe gate, according
to the release.
At the end of play, the pattern

will be reversed, with traffic leaving
through the Roscoe Boulevard gate
directed north on Roscoe to Solana
Road and A1A. No vehicles leaving
the gate will be allowed to go south
of Roscoe, according to the news
Roscoe Boulevard is one of few
roads in the Ponte Vedra Beach
area that some consider to be Palm

Sharks start

'PV tradition'

P'onte Vedra High School will kick off spring
football practice Friday afternoon at Landrum
Middle School, according to Mike Loyd, the
school's newly hired head football coach.
"We'll work with the young kids from 4 p.m. to
5:30, p.m. at Lantdrum and the older ones at 6
p.m. at Davis Park," Loyd said Tuesday from his
temporary office at Nease High School.
"We have a tentative schedule set up through
Saturday. We don't have a locker room yet so we
have to make the best of our situation."
Loyd said he will hold an "equipment check-
out" Saturday at Davis Park to pass out helmets
and other items.
Thursday is the first official day of spring foot-
ball practice in Florida. Teams cannot begin con-
tact drills until the fourth day of practice, accord-
ing to the Florida High School Athletic
Loyd said the school, which will open Aug. 22,
has ordered shoulder pads and blocking sleds, but
neither will arrive before Friday. Loyd said he has
about 50 helmets, including some procured from
the annual Army All-American Bowl in San
Antonio, Texas.
The Sharks, who will play a 10-game season
next fall, will compete as an independent entity
and will not be eligible for the state playoffs. The
team opens its inaugural season on Friday, Sept.
5, at Bartram Trail High in Northwest St. Johns
PV High and its sister school, Creekside High,
will cap spring drills with a scrimmage on
Saturday, May 31.
:: Loyd, formerly of Ardmore (Okla.) High,
arrived in town last Wednesday and was expected
to meet with incoming freshmen Tuesday at
L'tast weekend, he met with some prospective
incoming sophomores and juniors at
Cornerstone Park.
"There were about 40 kids there," Loyd said. "I
met most of them and their parents. I told the
kids they have a chance to lay the foundation.
"Nease has a great tradition, and that was part
of the reason I was attracted to this area. Now, it's
time to start our tradition."

High School participated in the annual countywide student voter drive last week. Last year, Fletcher
won the Freedom Award in the large school category for registering the most new voters.
Approximately 700 students ranging in age from 16 to 18 registered or pre-registered to vote during
the three-day drive. Supervisor.of Elections Jerry Holland, a 1972 Fletcher graduate, came out dur-
ing the drive to visit with some of the new voters. He asked students why they thought the largest
block of voters, 18-25 year olds actually voted the least. Bekki Frank, a Fletcher senior, explained
"Many students don't really feel that their vote will count or they don't know that much about the
elections." Her statement was echoed by many others in the group.

ARC to revisit Veranda
The St. Johns County
Commission Tuesday sent the
Veranda sign proposal back to
the Ponte Vedra Architectural
Review Committee (ARC) with-
out any discussion on the issue.
Commissioners were to con-
sider allowing five of the six
Veranda buildings to have
more signs than .are allowed
under rules of the Ponte Vedra
Overlay District, overseen by
the ARC.
The overlay ordinance allows
one, 24-square-foot wall sign
per commercial building along
major roads in Ponte Vedra
Beach and Palm Valley.
The owners of the Veranda,
noting that the buildings hold
numerous tenants, have
requested a total of 14 wall
signs on the east sides of five
buildings, facing State Road
The Veranda is on the west
side of A1A just south of PGA
Tour Boulevard.
ARC, which OKs design, col-
ors, signs and landscaping on
commercial buildings, did not
come to a consensus on the,
Veranda signs .when members
discussed the issue last year.
At Tuesday's commission
meeting, Patrick McCormack,
St. Johns County attorney, sug-
gested removing the Veranda
sign plan from the. commis-
sion's agenda and letting the
ARC consider the plan May 14.
"We think it would be pru-
dent," McCormack said, noting
that he had spoken with mem-
bers of the ARC and the attor-
ney representing Veranda.
Commission Chair Tom
Manuel of Ponte Vedra Beach
said he hoped the ARC could
come to an agreement about
the signs before the issue
returns for commission consid-
eration May 27.
Variances from ARC rules

must be OK'd by the St. Johns
County Commission.
"Hopefully, on May 14, we
can get this issue resolved at the
community level,... which, of
course, be our preference,"
Manuel said.

according to Rubin. If a termi-
nal is built, it would take up
less than eight acres of prop-
erty rather than the 40 acres it
is on now as things could be
built, vertically, according to
published reports.
"We have no intention of
cementing over Mayport
Village," said Rubin. "There's
a lot that comes with a cruise
terminal. Our economic gain
doesn't go into our pockets."
Atlantic Beach Mayor John
Meserve Tuesday said that a
terminal would "jumpstart"
the area by bringing industry
to the Village.
"For anybody that says we
don't want to ruin the his-
toric ambiance of Mayport, I
would dare them to take a pic-
ture of it from the river. It's a
dump," he said regarding
Mayport's commercial dis-
Drugs are being sold in the
area and there is no move-
ment for any type of develop-
ment right now, he said.
While Meserve said he rec-
ognizes that the traffic and

Disagrees with the attitude of

opposed to any changes.
"You could put two or three
restaurants out there and sell
Mayport shrimp out of
them," he said.
However, David Fisher,
chair of the Mayport
Waterfront Partnership a
group dedicated to preserving
a working waterfront said
the partnership is "not very
happy with the situation."
The Partnership passed a
resolution in February oppos-
ing the proposed terminal
because members said it
would damage the shrimping
industry and destroy the
lifestyle of the Village.
Fisher added that he was
"appalled" by comments
Meserve made regarding the
status of the Village, especial-
ly since Meserve played an
integral role in the establish-
ment of the Partnership and
served as its first chairman.
"That was bad form," he
said. "To get a slap in the face
like that from our [first] chair-

The Leader's Opinion

Clinic cooperative

showcases the spirit,

heart of community

Millions of Americans have no health insur-
ance. Millions more have health insurance that
provides minimal coverage while emptying the
user's pocketbook.
These uninsured and underinsured are the
focus of significant public debate and hand
The political arena has, to date, afforded no
solutions nationwide or statewide.
Locally, however, a consortium of business,
civic and religious organizations has formed to
tackle the problem directly. With virtually no
rhetoric or posturing, the group has quietly been
working toward a solution to help neighbors in
The result will soon be a clinic that promises to
provide routine medical care for the needy -
including families.
The bottom line is expected to be better health
for more people once the clinic is operational in
coming months.
That means there should be fewer people get-
ting critically ill because they lacked routine
It also means hospital emergency rooms will
not be clogged by those who could have been
treated sooner elsewhere at a substantial sav-
Plans for the clinic both its physical and fis-
cal operations in south Jacksonville Beach- are
still being nailed down.
Organizers are clearly enthused about the proj-
ect. This is an example of neighbors helping
neighbors and a project that promises to ulti-
mately benefit the entire community.

First Street is dangerous to cross

Auction signs are just litter

To the editor:
I'm sorry that so many peo-
ple in the real estate business
are undergoing hard times
and I hope that the market
will rebound shortly.
However, this fact does not
excuse the blatant disregard
for Jacksonville Beach city
codes that prohibit snipe
signs on the city right of
ways. I am referring to the
proliferation of AUCTION
signs that appear every week-
end in one or more locations.
I know for a fact that the bro-
kers are aware that these signs
are illegal and they put them
out only on the weekends
when they know city code
enforcement officers are off
duty. I have asked several
agents if their brokers are
aware of the illegality of these
signs and they confirmed to

me that they are.
Perhaps Mr. Forbes, our city
manager, would authorize
one officer Saturday duty in
place of another day off to
remove these signs and others
advertising various sales
events that litter our city on
the weekends. Or better yet,
the council could declare
such signs litter and any citi-
zen could remove them as
they would any other form of
It is shameful that people
litter but it seems to be a way
of life for some. Thanks to
the many organizations and
individuals who go out of
their way to make our city a
more desirable place to live
by picking up after others.

Our police deserve a better deal

ast year Jax Beach once
again had the highest
crime rate in northeast
Florida. We host thousands of
visitors but staff our police
only based on our resident
population. We have none to
manage the hordes from
across the ditch. Our police
handle more calls for service
per officer than any other
department in the area. We
are blessed to have a core
group of dedicated, experi-
enced officers probably the
best in the state.
The City and police are
negotiating police salaries for
the next two years. Our
police, similar to the
Jacksonville Sheriffs Office
(JSO), are compensated based
on a negotiated 17-step pay
scale. All new hires, regardless
of experience, normally start
at pay step one, currently
$17.10 per hour. If after oine
year the officer receives a sat-
isfactory review they advance
to pay step two at $17.60/hr.
With an outstanding review
they advance two steps to pay
step three at $18.48/hr.
-..The City would character-
,ize tthe latter as a 6% raise. I
would characterize it as
underpaid. Following this
pay plan, after six years an
officer receiving only satisfac-
tory reviews would be paid
more than $13,000 per year
less than their JSO counter-
part, with outstanding
reviews every other year
almost $9,000 per year less.
The police are asking for
raises of 7% for the next two
years to reduce this pay dif-
ferential. We have a difficult
time filling positions at the
police department and I
believe we currently have
four unfilled positions. The
Police shortage is a national
problem. I have heard JSO is
short 400 officers. Closing the
pay differential would help us
compete with JSO for the lim-
ited pool of good officers.
After secret meetings closed
to the public, the Council has


instructed the City negotiat-
ing team to offer our police a
0% increase each of the next
two years.
The excuse we hear is that
we don't have enough
money. The truth is our prior-
ities are upside down. The
budget for the City Managers
office increased 15% last year,
even before the Council
approved two years of consec-
utive 5% raises for the City
Manager. We spent
$3,000,000 to realign
Penman Road, why I don't
know. ,We paid more than
$2,000,000, for land down-
town. to be used, at least tem-
porarily, for more surface
parking to allow more visitors
we don't have the staff to
police. The $130,000 tide
clock that was approved then
disapproved would fund
three officers, the $67,000
paper folder/sorter purchased
to send full-color folded
propaganda pieces with the
electric bills would pay for
almost two.
I often think understaffing
the police is by design to ben-
efit the bar owners, the only
ones really prospering in our
"entertainment district",
which is the location of 25%
of our crime. Does the
Council worry that a strong
police presence downtown
will discourage the drunks
from visiting?
Now the police are not

responsible for causing our
crime problem. They are just
a Band-aid for the cut.
The causes of our high
crime are the policies of the
City, the actions of the plan-
*ning department, and deci-
sions of the planning com-
mission: abundant free park-
ing, high bar density,. over-
taxed police, lack of institu-
tional controls on anti-social
behavior, understaffed code
enforcement with none
nights or weekends, not pri-
oritizing crime reduction
strategies like the Head Start
program, ignoring proven
crime reduction techniques
like adequate lighting, refus-
ing to recognize the differ-
ence between a restaurant
and a bar, clinging to the past
and refusing to accept current
realities, all result in resigned'
,tolerance of crime by our res-
To date the city's approach
to our crime problem is to
either pretend it doesn't exist
or blame it on someone else.
When we had the riot in the
pier parking lot last month
That took billy clubs, tasers,
San hour, and a hundred cops
to quell: it was because school
was not in session.
When we had gunplay
amongst large early morning
crowds at Latham Plaza last
summer, it was because a bar
had closed. Guess what?
Schools let out and bars dose.
Never has the City acknowl-
edged that our high crime
rate is because we have creat-
ed an environment con-
ducive to crime, a breeding
ground. Until that occurs we
are without hope.
What are the solutions to
our crime problem? It sure
doesn't look like the Council
has any answers. If you don't
believe me, just ask one.
A good first step is to take
care of our police. They
deserve it.
Smith lives with his family in
downtown Jacksonville Beach.

Complaints kill AB's 6th St. beautification

A beautification project on
Sixth Street in Atlantic Beach
was voted down after several
citizens complained.
A group of neighbors
formed a committee and
requested $2,500 from the
city to landscape the Sixth
Street beach access, but sever-
al residents said they were
opposed to various aspects of
the project.
Resident Don Ford said that
he did not have a problem
with the concept of beautifi-
cation, but was concerned
that some citizens either did
not know about the project or

were not notified properly, he
said at Monday's meeting.
"Posting and notifying citi-
zens of Sixth Street has been a
problem with this project
from the beginning," he said.
Other citizens had concerns
about obstructing beach views
and that the landscaping
would make the area less
accessible to the public.
One resident, who said he
works with sex offenders,
expressed concern that heavy
foliage and barriers could
make the area less safe.
The proposed plan included
irrigation, Sabal and
Washingtonian Palms, Muhly
grass and Pittisporum.
Ligustrums were supposed

to be included, but Rodney
Margol, who initiated the
project, eliminated them from
the design proposal after
Commissioner Carolyn
Woods mentioned concerns
about them obstructing the
Mayor John Meserve said
that the city should not take
any action until there is a
general consensus among the
residents for a design plan.
"All I'm hearing is a lot of
negative vibes from this or a
lack of understanding of what
it is," he said. "I don't think
we can be horse trading with
[different residents regarding
various aspects of the project.]

Recruits make grade on Saturday

(Part nine of a series)

Lined up on the bulk-
head at 4 a.m. Saturday,
six sleep-deprived
recruits with the American
Red Cross Volunteer Life
Saving Corps sang an old
nursery rhyme.

"The worst is yet to come,
the worst is yet to come,
Hi-ho, the dario,
the worst is yet to come."

As the recruits repeated
the customized chorus to
"The Farmer in the Dell,"
members of the Corps'
recruit testing committee
hosed them down with cold
"Wet shoes. Wet shoes,"
quartermaster Thomas
Cassaro said gleefully as he
held the nozzle.
"We do this to make them
miserable," lifeguard Bill
Posch added.
A former member of the
U.S. Air Force's elite parares-
cue team, Posch, 26, was in
charge of making the final
day of winter recruit train-
ing as miserable and
memorable as possible.

left, Eric Bohn, instructor Rick Foster, Anthony Delossantos, Monica Ruggiero, Kaity Morris,
Catherine Woodcock, Walley Meskel, asst. instructor Demian Harris and Rob Emahiser.

Air Force pararescue
jumpers, also known as PJ's,
are billed as the most highly
trained emergency trauma
specialists in the U.S. mili-
tary. Trained as parachutists,
scuba divers and combat
medics, PJ's undergo some
of the most arduous training

in the military.
Posch, who joined the,
Corps as a Fletcher High
junior in 1999, spent six
years as a PJ with the 38th
Rescue Squadron, stationed
at Moody Air Force Base in
Warner Robins, Ga.
Assisting Posch on "test

Saturday" was former Navy
search-and-rescue swimmer
Rob Emahiser, who joined
the Corps in 1994.
After a round of pushups
in their soaking wet gym
clothes, the recruits, Eric
Bohn, Kaity Morris,
Anthony Delossantos,

Catherine Woodcock, Walley
Meskel and Monica
Ruggiero, lined up on the
beach for their final timed
mile run.
Morris, a 17-year-old jun-
ior at Providence High and a
lifeguard in her native South
Africa, was the first recruit
across the line in six min-
utes and 44 seconds.
Meskel, a senior at
Stanton College Prep, and
Delossantos, a junior at
Paxon School for Advanced
Studies, crossed the line
together at 7:21. Ruggiero,
an 18-year-old waitress with
a degree in culinary arts
from Johnson & Wales
University, called out her
name as she finished in
Bohn, a 19-year-old aspir-
ing firefighter, easily fin-
ished under the 8-minute
qualifying time.
But Woodcock, a junior
honors student at Nease
High, passed by the skin of
her teeth in 7:58.
Posch wasted no time
wearing the recruits down
physically for the next hour.
They ran and swam in high
surf, performed numerous



Author finds

story in own

back yard

A local author is traveling in
good company via her chil-
dren's story in which the
young characters become
intrigued with flying.
In the brief book, "Magical
Adventures in Your Own
Backyard," Delores Suggs-
Marshall has created an cute
imaginative yam wherein the
setting is the back yard at her
grandchildren's home, embel-
lished by fairy-attracting bird
For the book, the author
uses the pen name, "Ganma,"
a childlike mispronunciation
of "Grandma," originated by
one of her grandchildren.
"I didn't get an option, "the
author told me. "She called
me that from the time she was
able to talk." The author said
that using it for a nom de
plume was "kind of catchy."
Models for the lead roles in
the story were three of her
grandkids, ages 8, 9, and 10.
Their unusual first names are
used, respectivelv: Brea, Caru. .
Sand K~nya. tne book is dedi-
cated to all nine of her grand-
"The children's book is
about three sisters meeting
two fairies in their back yard
and the adventures they
incur," said Suggs-Marshall.
The fairies, being winged
and capable of flight, were
drawn to the bird feeders,
which were also being visited
by hummingbirds. The young-
sters began to interact with
the fairies, and the fantasy
proceeded. The author's prac-
tice of employing unique
given names continued, as the
fairies were called Tafcee,
Goefcee and other equally
novel monikers.
In building the tale, the
author manages to include
some rules for juvenile behav-
ior, e.g., they were allowed to
amuse themselves "...only
when homework and chores
were all done," the author
She also infused some child-
like foibles that so often show
up in the relations among sib-
lings. In our interview, she
referred to the coverage in the
book of "...all the bickering
and conniving that goes. on
between sisters...." The con-
flict of overdevelopment and
the natural environment is
indicated, too.
The flitting of fairies around
the bird feeders might be con-
sidered symbolic of the situa-
tion. According to the author,
the book will be available
through www.publishameri-
ca.com, and book stores on
May 5.

their families after each
round, said Gonzalez, who
previously served as execu-
tive chef at The TPC
Michigan and at prestigious
hotels and private clubs in
Virginia and Michigan.
He became executive chef
at the Sawgrass clubhouse
shortly after it opened last
"I fell very fortunate to be
part of the clubhouse in the
first year," he said.
Gonzalez said it is mean-

ingful for him to work for
the PGA Tour with its core
values, "We Care, We Lead,
We Learn, We Respect, We

"Nasty food has a pur-

the 2006 winter recruit class.

"Lifeguards have to deal

At 6:25 a.m., Posch, wear-

pararescue trainee, entered
the chilly classroom and
scolded the recruits for tak-

written exam.
"Are you guys sandbagging

Ruggiero finished the test
first at 6:26 a.m. Woodcock
was second at 6:27.
At 6:30 a.m., the recruits
were ordered to grab shovels

it wasn't, I wouldn't feel this

Woodcock, who shined on
written exams but had to
work on the physical aspects
of lifeguarding, was amazed
she got through it.
"I wanted it from day one,
but I never thought I could
get in," the former gymnast
and cheerleader said.
"I just worked at it. Every
time I came to the station, I
tried as hard as I could. It
feels really good to be stand-
ing here right now."
Bohn, the oldest of the
group, said he started prepar-
ing himself mentally for
recruit training a rhonth
before it began on Sunday,
Jan. 27.
Bohn grew up with a few
lifeguards in the Corps, but
said that hurt him more than
'helped him.
"They made me work 10
times harder," he said.
"Knowing people in the
Corps won't get you in. I
wanted it pretty bad. Words
can't describe how I feel
right now."
Before his six former
recruits were dismissed,

neering degree in college and
works as a project manager
for a major construction
firm, gave them a final piece

tional way and according to
him "the classics remain the
However, Gonzalez also
embraces change, and is
enthusiastic about continu-
ing to learn and grow in his
The general public, he
said, is better educated about
food today and more willing
to try new ingredients and
new preparations.
"This is a very exciting
time for anyone in the culi-
nary field," he added.
At home, Gonzalez enjoys
cooking for his family or
cooking with them. He said
he is just as enthusiastic
about dinner at home as he
is for preparing a banquet for
500 guests at the clubhouse.
"I can still get excited
about grocery shopping," he.
Choosing the best ingredi-
ents, such as high quality
tomatoes and herbs, and
paying attention to details,
such as making sure bacon is
really crisp, is the difference
between dishes that are good
enough and those that are
superior, he adds.
Now that The Players is in
May instead of March,
Gonzalez said that he prefers
to offer lighter dishes to the
golfers and their families. He
said fresh fish will be served
every day.
"Mango Salsa can be used
on a number of different
fish," Gonzalez added.
"I like to sear either
grouper or Florida snapper
seasoned lightly with black-
ening spice until bronze in
color. Your favorite blend is
usually best and topped with
the salsa the fresher the bet-
ter," he said.
He also goes beyond basic
tuna salad with his Tuna and
Chick Pea Salad. This dish is
made with macadamia nuts,
raisins, and fresh basil.

The following are recipes
Gonzalez will serve to the PGA
Tour players and their families
during tournament week.

3 mangos, small dice
2 small red bell peppers,

2 tbs. rice vinegar
1 tbs. olive oil

One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating

Welcomes Home One of Its Own

Eddy and Dee.

Super Tune-up
Special 247-7119

Craig Eddy Jr. is back from Kuwait and
Iraq after serving a tour of duty with the
Naval Reserves and he is eager to get back in
his One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating
van to serve this community as your air
conditioning service provider. One Hour
Air, located at 1198 Mayport Road. Suite 11.
is a family-owned and operated business.
When the call to duty comes, it affects the
family in a number of ways. Craig's absence
affected not only the family but the busi-
ness as well.
"The entire team at One Hour Air depends
on each other greatly," says Dee Eddy.
"When one is away it is felt by everyone.
The team members pulled together and car-
ried on and we felt as though we were doing
our part to serve this country while Craig
was away." That is behind them now, and
Craig is back and ready to serve the cus-
tomers of One Hour Air.
Craig and his parents, Eddy and Dee,
share one singular mission: to provide cus-
tomers with the highest quality service.
However, this company has taken its leg-
endary service to an even higher level of
service excellence. How? One Hour Air's

focus is all

about "time" and how important and valuable it is to
you. While "on-time service" is a common phrase, it is
generally not practiced. Together, One Hour Air and every
member of the team will change this reality by dedicating.
their entire philosophy to providing on-time service, or as
their new mission states, "Always On Time ... Or You
Don't Pay a Dime!".
"You know how you call a HVAC technician; then wait
days or weeks, for him or her to show up?" Craig explains.
"Frustrating, isn't it? Well, we think wasting your time is
a crime. We're One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating -
Always On Time ... Or You Don't Pay A Dime!. It's our
way of letting you know that we do what we say we'll do.
When we say we'll be there, we'll be there because we're
Always On Time ... Or You Don't Pay A Dime!.
"We know when you need us," Dee says, "you really
need us. We also know your time is valuable. So if we're
late for an appointment, your repair is free." That's a
strong incentive for the skilled professionals at One Hour
Air to get it right. They do get it right where timing is con-
cerned, and they get it right where the work is concerned.
"We're proud of the top-quality, professional services
we offer our customers," says Eddy. "We guarantee our
work and we are a UWIN elite service provider." UWIN is
a third party consumer agency that allows elite home
service contractors to provide an extra level of protection
and peace of mind to homeowners. UWIN's goal is 100%

Panthers hoping to rally in state playoffs

Following last Friday night's
9-3 loss to Palatka in the
District 5-4A championship
game, the Nease High baseball
team was hoping to right its
ship in time for last night's
state playoff opener.
The Panthers traveled to
Crystal River Tuesday night
for a regional quarterfinal
Against Palatka, errors were
the key to Nease's downfall.
The host Panthers committed
four errors that led to six runs
in the ballgame.

highlights for
Nease included
solo home runs
from Jared
MacNaught and
Steven Delvalle,
but they
weren't enough
to overcome
Palatka's four-
run second
inning and two-
run sixth.
Palatka didn't hit Nease
starter Will Haga hard only
one ball left the infield during
its second-inning rally but
took advantage of miscues and
made the most of opportuni-
ties to win a third consecutive
district title.
But Haga struggled with his
control during the 3 1/3.
innings he pitched. The right-
hander plunked two Palatka
batters and surrendered seven
runs on nine hits with a walk
and four strikeouts.
With the loss, Nease
dropped to 16-11 on the sea-
son but still advanced to the
state playoffs after missing out
in 2007.

Mandarin 6, Fletcher 5
This one had to hurt most
of all.
After losing to Mandarin

four times already this season,
the Fletcher High softball
team figured it had finally
turned the tide with a two-
run lead heading into the bot-
tom of the seventh inning of
last Friday's regional semifi-
But it was not to be as the
Jlost Mustangs rallied for
three runs in their last at-bats
to send the Senators down to
defeat for a fifth time this sea-
son, this'one by a 6-5 count.
Fletcher seemed to be coast-
ing with a 3-0 lead through
four and a half innings before
SMandarin (25-
2) played small
ball and took
advantage of
some Senators
With one out
in the bottom
of the fifth,
Mustangs batter
Katy Black
bunted down
the third base
line to get
aboard. Clara
Kendall then laid down
another bunt intended as a
sacrifice but reached safely on
a throwing error, putting
Mandarin runners on second
and third.
A sacrifice fly brought Black
home to make it 3-1 and
Michelle Moultrie's triple plat-
ed Kendall. A terrific relay
throw from Fletcher outfielder
Katie Satterfield to second
baseman Bridget Carey to
catcher Brooke Peaver cut
down Moultrie at the plate as
she tried to stretch her three-
base.hit into an inside-the-
park home rtnm.
That left things at 3-2 and it
appeared the Senators had
dodged a disastrous inning.
After Mandarin's leadoff,

bottom of the sixth, Fletcher
stood five outs from victory.
But Taylor Carter singled up

ond on Robyn Adams' sac fly.
Cora Milliken then hit a
routine grounder to short but
a throwing error allowed
Carter to score and knot the
game at 3-all before a ground
ball out ended the inning.
While the Senators could
have been deflated by the
turn of events, players instead

responded with a rally.
Amanda Luke reached on
an error and Samantha
Meenaghan walked on four
pitches to put Fletcher run-
ners on first and second with
no outs. After failing to get a
bunt down, Kelly Wilson sin-
gled to load the bases.
Brooke Peaver followed
with a two-run single, giving

the Senators a 5-3 advantage
and needing only three outs
to extend their season.
In the home half of the sev-
enth, Black again bunted to
get on and Kendall followed
suit with a bunt that was mis-
played resulting in Mustangs

outs. ,

clubbed a two-run double to
make it 5-all.
Moultrie followed with a
drive to right that sailed over
Satterfield's head, enabling
Kelly to score the game-win-
ning run for Mandarin,
"This [loss] was the worst,"
said Senators head coach
Christina Flores. "Not only
did we have the lead we
scored two runs in the first -
and then in the sixth inning
we regained the lead with two
more runs, but.they're a very
good team and I know in two
innings we gave them five
outs. So it's tough to beat a
good team when we're giving
them extra outs and not mak-
ing the routine plays."
Flores also noted that over
the course of five games this
season Mustangs batters have
become very familiar with
Fletcher starting pitcher Erin
Schuppert, and were able to
wait for pitches they liked in
the latter innings.
Despite the disappointment
of losing to Mandarin five
times and seeing their season
come to an abrupt end, Flores
hopes in time players will
realize they made great strides
this spring.
"We went farther than we
have in at least five years,"
she said. "We had a great sea-
son. We're 20-8, and five of
those losses were to the same
team. And again, some of
those were one-run ballgames.

A good variety of fish caught from Pier

Snapper weighing up to 14
pounds were brought in
from the party grounds all
last week. A good mix of
drum, sheepshead, trout, pom-
pano, flounder and Spanish
came over the rail of the
Jacksonville Beach Pier. Catch
the tide right, and you can
bring home whiting and pom-
pano from the surf at Little
Talbot Island.
Lowell Breeding on his PK's
Mistake with Butch Garvin,
J.B. and Mike Tandarich
anchored about 14 miles off-
shore and pulled up 10 snap-
per to 14 pounds, two grouper,
two flounder, a large yellow-
mouth trout and a 35-pound
red bass. All the fish were
caught on dead cigar min-


Capt. Dennis Young, on his
Sea Dancer with the George
Kessler party last Saturday, tied
up at the Jacksonville Marina
with their limit of snapper to
ten pounds, three grouper,
several flounder and a shark.

David Moore, right, gets a little help from guide Fred Morrow
with the 43-pound black drum he caught recently.

On Sunday, Capt. Dennis
put his guests Jun Sicango and
his son Paulo, Lee Bautista and
his sons Paulo and Franco on
another bite of bottom fish.
They caught 10 snapper
weighing between five and
eight pounds, a 10-pound
grouper and 20 fat beeliners.
Earlier in the week, on
Tuesday, Willie Montgomery
and Miles King with Capt.
Dennis boxed their limit of
snapper to 12 pounds, four
grouper to 15 pounds, and
dozens of sea bass.
Capt. Chris Rooney, John
and William Goodling and
Mike Watts fished the T.W.
bottom last Sunday aboard the
Driftin' and Dreamin' and iced
down eight red snapper and
24 beeliners.
Jimmy Holt, David Kelly
and Chad Prince made a blue
water trip on the Huntin' and
Fishin' last week and caught
nine dolphin to 20 pounds.
Capt. Harry Graves, his son
H.B., Jack Ross and Molton
Smith had an exciting week-
end trip to the party grounds.
They checked in with a black-
fin tuna and five dolphin to
30 pounds.
Pier fishing picked up con-
siderably last week. Cameron
Jones, on his very first trip to
the Jax Beach Pier, caught sev-
eral whiting and 3-year-old
Isaiah Smith caught his very
first fish last Tuesday.
Larry Finch and his grand-
son Logan teamed up in last
week's Extreme Redfish
Tournament and caught 13
reds using live mullet and
mud minnows. They won
third place.
Larry also made several trips
to the surf at Little Talbot
Island last week and continues
to catch dozens of whiting
and pompano.
George Atelevich finished in
first place in the Redfish
Tournament with two reds
weighing 13.72 pounds.
Capt. Kirk Waltz on his
Enterprise last Monday with
Tom Delcourso and his broth-
er reported the yellowmouth
trout are hot in the river near
the south jetties. The party
caught 51 trout.
On Thursday, Ken Drednick

the river and caught 54 trout,
a red, 12 jacks and 24 blues.
Sheila Reynolds used dead
shrimp in the river to catch a
speckled trout weighing seven
and three-quarters pounds.
Jay McCarter reported a
catch of four reds, a six-pound
trout and 10 blues he made at
the big jetties.
Buck Gergley, a veteran
angler aboard the King

the jetties with live fiddlers
last Monday and caught eight
sheepshead to seven and a
half pounds, a 28-inch red,
and a 31-inch red.
Willie Ulmer found his spot
in the river near the Bolles
School last Friday and caught
three six-pound drum, a 12-
pound catfish, a red and six
speckled trout to five and a

Even though it sounds
repetitive, remarkable bottom
fishing continues offshore.
Anglers on both the King
Neptune and Mayport Princess
worked their tackle hard on
each trip as they pulled up
snapper and grouper weighing
up to 17 pounds, amberjack
and an occasional cobia in the
40-pound class.
A typical day on the Princess
last week mirrored Saturday's
catch when they returned
with 42 snapper, 12 amber-
jack, two grouper and plenty
of beeliners.
A typical day on the King
Neptune resembled last
Friday's catch of 45 snapper,
two mangrove, a pair of
grouper to 16 pounds, a 43-
pound cobia, a blackfin and
dozens of sea bass and beelin-

Beaches Fine Arts

Series offers prep

session for triathlon

Beaches Fine Arts Series hosted a Duathlon
on April 19 at the Town of Nocatee. The
Duathlon, a 2-mile run, followed by a 12
mile bike, followed by a 2-mile run, was a
new race for Beaches Fine Arts Series, which
annually hosts a Sprint Triathlon Series as a
benefit for its free fine arts programs.
Approximately 175 athletes participated in
the race under clear skies and perfect condi-
tions. The course, designed by Steve Curran,
was described by athletes as both beautiful
and functional. The race took place in the
community of Coastal Oaks, with some of
the bike course on Palm Valley Road and
Crosswater Parkway. The pre and post race
activities took place in the Riverwood com-
Overall male winners were Justin Jacobs,
JacksonvTille at 52:23; Joseph Sindad, St.
Augustine at 55:23; Steve Pettit, Atlantic
Beach at 55:38. Overall female winners were
Colleen Nicoulin, Port Orange at 1:01:14;
Kellie Smirnoff, Jacksonville at 1:03:31; Liz
Boudreaux, Atlantic Beach at 1:05:54.
Bike Fitters of Ponte Vedra Beach donated a
Kuota K Factor Full Carbon Frameset valued
at $1799 and the winner was John Snow of
Ponte Vedra Beach.
The Beaches Fine Arts Duathlon was a pre-
lude to the Lifestyles Realtors Beaches Fine
Arts Sprint Triathlon Series (BFAST), which
begins on May 17 at Mickler's Landing in
Ponte Vedra Beach.
"We felt that presenting a duathlon prior
to our triathlons would encourage people to
train and would offer a chance for those who
are uncomfortable with the swim portion of
the triathlons to participate in a race without
a swim," said Liza Bowcock, Race Director for
the Duathlon. "For new racers as well as
experienced ones,.we will host our annual
Triathlon Clinic at Cannaday Building on the
Mayo Clinic campus on Thursday, May 1
from 7-9 p.m."
The clinic will focus on concepts of
triathlon, including race day preparations,
equipment setup, and nutrition. The clinic
will feature the Mayo sports medicine doc-
tors along with experienced triathletes who
will share tips and experiences. There will be
break-out sessions for both novices and more
experienced triathletes.
This clinic is followed on Saturday, May 3,
at 8 a.m with a hands-on triathlon tutorial
hosted by Hammerhead Racing at Mickler's
Landing, the site of our races. For informa-
tion about either of these clinics or the
triathlon series, call 270-2074.

loaded at the website at
