Politicos meet

in Palm Valley

Although the race to
determine the Democrat
nominee for President has
dominated national news
for months, Ponte Vedra
voters will have a number of
local choices on their ballots
in August and November.
There will be races for
three seats on the St. Johns
County Commission and a
race for the District 18 seat
in the Florida House of
For those living in the spe-
cial taxing district of the
Ponte Vedra Municipal
Service District (MSD), vot-
ers will be asked to fill five of
the seven seats on the MSD
Board of Trustees.
As of Tuesday, no one had
indicated plans to run for or
retain those seats, although
two residents have applied
for appointment to two
vacant MSD seats. Those
'appointments are to be
made by Gov. Charlie Crist.
Among the candidates for
local office expected to
attend a forum in Palm
Valley Monday are four
county officials who, at least
so far; have no opposition, ,
They are Penny
Halyburton, supervisor of
elections; Cheryl Strickland,
clerk of courts; Sharon
Outland, property appraiser,
and Dennis Hollingsworth,
tax collector.
Also scheduled to attend
are eight candidates for the
three St. Johns County
Commission seats up for
grabs. Each of those seats is
being sought by its incum-

bent commissioner.
The forum is hosted by the
Palm Valley Community
Association at its center, 148
Canal Blvd., off Roscoe
The meeting begins at 7
p.m., and all are invited.
Cyndi Stevenson, St.
Johns County commissioner
for District 1, which is large-
ly Northwest St. Johns
County but which includes
some of Ponte Vedra Beach
near the Palm Valley bridge,
is expected to attend, as is
her fellow Republican and
opponent, Albert J.
A third candidate for that
.seat, Merrill Paul Roland of
St. Augustine, is running
with no party affiliation.
Also expected to attend is
Commissioner James
Bryant. a Republican and
longtime commissioner
from District 5, which
stretches along the beaches
area from Mickler Road.
His Republican opponent,
Ken Bryan, is also expected
to attend. Bryan was a candi-
date for the District 2 seat in
2006. Running as a
Democrat,.Briya:~st lost to
Republican Ro0tn"Sanch4
A third Republican candi-
date for the District 5 seat is

Augustine,. who also is
expected to attend the

up for grabs is in District 3,

Lord of Life Church awaits loan

More than 400 truckloads of
dirt have been dumped on the
grounds of Lord of Life Lutheran
SChurch in preparation for a new
--.church building.
The 4,200-square foot struc-
ture will have a sanctuary,
narthex and greeting area,
offices, classrooms and rest-
rooms and will be "very small,
very modest, very simple," Julie
Frank, pastor of the church at
276 N. Roscoe Blvd., said this
The dirt was needed "because
the property was so low," she

At the Roscoe Boulevard site,
worship and other activities
have taken part under a pavilion
and on the grounds.'
The pavilion will remain after
the new church is built, Frank
said. It has a large, open space,
picnic tables, a commercial
kitchen and bathrooms.
The pastor said the loan for
the building is in its final stages
of approval. The loan will come
from Mission Investment Fund
through the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in America,
Frank said.

"We will get a loan," she said.
"The amount is determined by
what they decide.
"But when we get the loan,

put the pad down -It'f a- steel -
building," the pastor said.
Because the site is zbned OR
(open rural), the structuredoes-
not have to meet the standards'
or approval of the Ponte Vedra
Palm Valley Architectural
Review Committee (ARC), said
David Harrell, a St. Johns
County planner and adviser to
the ARC.
Lord of Life Lutheran has 182
members, to include a large
group of children. Membership
ranges from ages 2-1/2 to 91 for

those attending worship.
Worship times change for the
summer with Celebration
Sunday May 18, becoming one
service, at 9:45 a.m.
- Services will be held in the
pavilion. Regular services resume
the second week of September.
Frank is married to Tim Frank,
formerly a fourth-grade teacher
at Ocean Palms Elementary and
now curriculum coordinator at
Switzerland Pointe Middle
School in Northwest St. Johns
County. He spent four years at
Ocean Palms.
The Franks have three chil-
dren: David, 13; Daniel, 11; and
Rachel, "who is 9 going on 19,"
said her mother.

Judith and Gerre Hancock,
two of the most well known
Christian musicians, will pres-
ent a concert at 3 p.m. Sunday
at Christ Episcopal Church in
Ponte Vedra Beach.

member of the University of
Texas in Austin, where he and
his wife are developing a cur-
riculum for the study of sacred
He has served on the faculty
at Juilliard and holds the
Doctor of Divinity degree from

For more than 30 years, he

Referendum Day redux
The St. Johns County
Commission will continue
their "Referendum Day" meet-
ing at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in
the county auditorium off U.S.

St. Augustine.
The meeting began April 29
in St. Augustine.
The commission will consid-
er the following items to
potentially be placed on
upcoming ballots as referen-
* Charter government,
including non-partisan elec-
tions, term limits and other
important considerations;
* Funding for trans-
portation projects;
* Straw vote to gauge
the electorates desire to con-
solidate the duties of the
Anastasia Mosquito Control
District into County opera-
tions; x-wi ' .'
* Public safety general

obligation bonds, and
* Any other initiative
introduced by a commissioner
or citizen.
Citizens can present issues to
the County Commissioners
and, if the commission recom-
mends it, the issue could be
placed directly on the ballot as
a referendum item, thus
bypassing the process of gath-
ering signatures to have an
item placed on the ballot.

The Leader's Opinion

Objective measures

of program needed

Community policing is a popular term that
evokes images of a uniformed police officer
walking a beat, while swinging a night stick and
tipping his hat to shopkeepers and residents.
In St. Johns County, community policing has
another dimension.
A shift in assignments has been made so that
the sheriff's district commanders will get to bet-
ter know the various community groups and
their members.
Shift commanders who are on duty but not
busy on a call will be attending civic group
meetings throughout the county in order to
learn about residents' specific concerns first
At first blush, the plan would seem to have
some merit as all are better served when law
enforcement officials have a clear picture of a
community's concerns.
Maintaining the program could prove diffi-
cult as critics question the value of having
sworn law enforcement officers routinely sit-
ting through countless meetings in which zon-
ing skirmishes are aired and dry financial
reports are delivered.
Clearly the new initiative has some merit, but
objective measures will have to be developed to
measure the success - and cost - of the pro-
gram before it continues indefinitely;

Wise move to help those less fortunate

To the editor:
Several years ago I wrote a
letter for The Beaches Leader,
encouraging those who could
afford to, to help those less for-
tunate financially. I am sur-.
prised to get a vicious backlash
accusing me of being a igno-
rant socialist. In the sense that
Jesus was a socialist, urging us
to be our brother's keeper, I
guess that's true.
I started my letter to the edi-
tor by quoting my high school
civics teacher, Jules Bacot, in
1962. On the first day of class,
he drew a line on the black-
board, saying the haves were
on the one end and the have
not were on the other. The
haves, he said, tend to accu-
mulate wealth until the have
not have nothing to lose or
revolt. Will and Ariel Durant,
in the Lessons of History, also
propose this.
In light of the recent food
riots, this theory seems to have
merit. In its most basic form,
money is a measure of work. In

would make it more con-
venient, safer and raise
property values? Did you
not know that "the city"
whoever that may be, would
take about 20 to 25 feet of
your property setback? How
could this help raise your
property value? How does

convenience play a part in
this? Did you not know
that you would also have to
pay to have a culvert under
your driveway?
If you really want to walk,
jog or ride a bike, why don't
you jump in your car and go
up to A1A where there are
miles of sidewalks that are
set back from the busy high-
way about.25 feet. I am sure
they are just waiting for the
Director of Good Moral, the
Communications Director
and the General of Good
Health to make use of them.
Another idea would be to
join one of the many health
clubs and spas in the area.
Better yet, .join our local
YMCA. They have all kinds
of health facilities plus a lap
pool. We are also blessed
with miles and miles of
beaches just waiting for you
to enjoy the salt" air and
exercise at the same time.
But, I guess if you actually
used the beaches, there
would be no need for a
"sidewalk committee."

With the recent reduction
of property taxes and all of
the budget cuts that this is
going to affect, where do
you suggest the money
come from? We are already
faced with cutbacks in the
most important part of our
safety and protection, the
men and women that put
their life on the line for us
everyday - our police and
fire fighters. Of course, if
we had sidewalks along
Roscoe and you had a med-
ical emergency, fire in your
home or criminal on your
property, you could make it
all the better by running
away on your safe sidewalks,
placed there for your con-
venience to get out of harms
way. Problem solved. Well
not exactly - don't bother to
complain about over-crowd-
ed school rooms and lack of
teachers, there have been
cuts there also. Do you real-
ly think sidewalks .are a

:Commission must not fold on the ARC decisions


our complex society, that defi-
nition has been diluted, with
money created by having
money and the government
printing money as it wishes.
I think my previous letter
was misinterpreted that I was
requiring those with wealth to
give it up by government man-
date. That was not the point at
all. By helping the financially
distressed, I don't believe in
giving money away. All mem-
bers of society need to have
access to quality education,
appropriate role modeling, and
wages with purchasing power
for a decent lifestyle to include
water, food, shelter, clothing,
transportation, security, health
care and education. Even if we
don't believe that we are our
brother's keeper, it is in all our
best interest to help those less
fortunate, if not for their sake, .
for the sake of the system (soci-
ety) as a whole.

To the editor:
The large number of
Ponte Vedra residents
appearing at the County
Commission Meeting on
April 30 may have caused
the * developers of the
Shoppes at Veranda to re-
think their plan to bypass
the Ponte Vedra
Architectural Review
Committee (PV ARC). If the
signs at Veranda seem famil-
iar it is because in
November of 2006 the same
plan was turned down 5 - 0
by the Board of County,
Commissioners (BCC).
Could it be that once again
we have a developer who

can't understand the word
The County Commission
has sent the developer back
to the ARC and requested a
recommendation on the sig-
nage proposal. According
to news reports, Veranda
representatives say the signs
they will propose are "mini-
malist and elegant." To
that I say, "Our ARC will be
the judge of that." The
Ponte Vedra ARC has done
an outstanding job protect-
ing the aesthetics of our
community. Developers
who attempt to circumvent
the established procedures
should be given a history

lesson called "Office Depot
Sign 101."
The big question is will
the BCC honor what the
ARC recommends??
There is a perception that
when some Commissioners
hear the word Lawsuit
(occasionally before it is
spoken), their reaction is to
fold like a cheap lawn chair.
The best defense for that
would be a large turn out of
PV residents to the ARC
meeting on May 14th at 5
PM at the Library.

Consider the shrimpers and their families' needs first

To the editor:
I am getting so disgusted
listening to all these people
put down the Mayport
shrimpers. I agree with the
fact that everyone has an
opinion, but ALL you have is,
an opinion.
"Mayport is such a dump",
wellhelp. them: fix it up
(without putting them out of
Fernandina is so proud of
their shrimping industry, that
they take pride in helping
them, but God forbid
Jacksonville Would help the
Mayport'Shrimping Industry.
Everyone is so busy thinking
how great it would be to have
a cruise ship terminal in
Mayport, that they have for-
gotten about the families that
shrimping supports.
I am willing to bet that
most of the people who are
"giving kudos" to the
Jacksonville Port Authority,
are high class people that
make plenty of money and go

out to restaurants and eat
"Mayport" shrimp all the
time. People that obviously
have more money than they
do sense.
Did you ever stop to think
about the families that
depend on the shrimping
industry? The CHILDREN
that depend on the shrimp-
ing industry to eat and pay
the bills to keep a roof over
their heads. The older
shrimpers who can't get any
"other job because shrimping
is all they know and they are
top old to learn anything else
and too young to collect
Social Security.
What do you expect those
people to do? The families
that will be put on the streets
for none payment of their
bills because the wealthy peo-
ple "wanted" a cruise ship ter-
minal so they can go on vaca-
tion and have fun.
Meanwhile the shrimpers
have to explain to their kids
why they are living in their

car, well at least until it gets
repoed for none payment.
You should be ashamed of
yourself for even thinking
that this is such a "great"
thing. Stop thinking about
yourself and try thinking of
the people you are putting
out of business and possibly
out of their homes.
Do you not have a heart or
do you just not care? Next
time you look at your child or
family, think about how you
would feel if you had to tell
them we have to move into
the car because we were put
out of business by selfish peo-
ple who came and ripped our
business out from under us.
Put yourself in our shoes.
Have a heart! I give kudos to
the Mayport Shrimpers for
holding on during these very
hard times and NOT giving

Public safety

is worth the cost

To the editor:
I am writing in support of
David Smith's column of
April 20, 2008.
It is unbelievable that the
Council in "secret meetings"
will be offering NO increase
in the next two years'for our
police officers.
At the very least, the City
ought to provide a basic cost
of living increase as deter-
mined by the Federal Budget
Office's yearly statistics.
Many good citizens volun-
teer their time and talents to
aid the community policing
efforts, but they are not
sworn officers with that
One subject that deserves
serious consideration is a
guarantee of paying the cost
of a college education for offi-
cers who wish to acquire this
schooling. It has been proven
to help retention in our
Armed Forces and I'm sure it
would be helpful here in
Jacksonville Beach.
Public safety is not an "elec-
tive" - it is a requirement that

In the past I wouldn't be

It took an eight year old to
make it my business.
Overhearing my grandson
talk to another eight year old
about a video game that the
friend played with his father,
I was jarred. Isn't something
wrong with an eight year old
talking about killing hun-
dreds of people and dying
himself. Searching for a way
to help, I found the Parents

grass roots organization
working to protect kids from

I read a review of the bru-

of the descriptions of the
writer such as "In true GTA

game "... makes you feel like a
true assassin," "as it starts to
feel like real life,""all of it
captured with stunning real-
ism." The writer even states, "
I can't seem to construct a
coherent thought without my
mind wondering off into a
day dream about the game. I
just want to drop everything
in my life so I can play it
again." A poll conducted and
reported on

S After graduating from UNF
in 1.990 with a degree in
finance, Natherson, a Ponte
Vedra Beach resident, helped
launch an Osprey baseball
alumni club that still
remains active to this day.
"We had our 20th anniver-
sary celebration this year,"
said Natherson, a former
starting second baseman on
the '88 Osprey squad that set
a national record for wins by
a first-year program.
"Dusty told us to appreci-
ate the time that we had and
this keeps the bond going."
Natherson played only one
season for the Ospreys before
shoulder and knee injuries
'sidelined him as a senior.
He played two years of
baseball at Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville, and was a mem-
ber of FCCJ's 1987 World
Series team.
"Most of the guys I got
that first year were junior
college guys," said Rhodes,

New recruits sign up

for '08 summer class

(Final part of a series)

Recruit surfman Anthony Delossantos (right) sits with surfman Joe Weisflog on a tower near the
Jacksonville Beach lifeguard station Sunday. Delossantos, a member of the 2008 winter recruit
class, is one of six new lifeguards for the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving. Corps.

Fourteen aspiring life-
guards ranging in age from
16 to 32 showed up for sum-
mer recruit class orientation
Sunday at the Jacksonville
Beach lifeguard station.
Seated in white folding
chairs in the station's first-
floor meeting room, the
recruits, mostly high school
and college students, sat qui-
etly as instructor Rick Foster
of the American Red Cross
Volunteer Life Saving Corps
passed out paperwork.
"Does anyone have any
vacations planned this sum-
mer? Foster asked the group,
masking a smile.
It was a rhetorical ques-
"This course is not going
to be easy," Foster said.
"I can only let you miss
one class because it takes a
lot to get caught up. I'm
probably the only friend you
will have here until you get

forms and waivers, Foster
told them that Sunday's class

The real deal begins
Sunday, May 18, with the
first of 12 scheduled training
On Sunday, the recruits
were shown a promotional
film tracing the history of
the Corps from its inception
in 1912.
They took a tour of the 60-
year-old lifeguard station and
climbed a winding stairway
to the iconic "peg," or obser-
vation tower.
They also learned that
there are stringent physical
requirements to remain in
recruit training, and that a
battery of written tests will
be administered.
"By week six, you'll need
to swim 500 meters in under
10 minutes and run the mile
in under eight," Foster said.
"A failing grade [on writ-
ten exams] is 80."
As the recruits filled out
paperwork, a shift change
was occurring in the station's
bustling boat room.
Among the lifeguards
reporting for the 10 a.m. roll
call were five of the six grad-
uates from Foster's 2008 win-
ter recruit class.
"I like being a mentor,"
Foster said.

"This is something I've
always wanted to do since I
got into the Corps [in 1996].
To see them better them-
selves is the best reward I
can get."
A project manager for a
major construction firm and
an electrical engineering
graduate of Tulane
University, Foster, 28, is one
of three officers in the Corps.
Only Capt. Thom Wright
outranks him.

mate before running for the

The instructor and the
assistant instructor are
required to volunteer every
Sunday from late January to
early August. They also
attend weekly staff meetings
at the station.
"I 'knew it was going to be
a lot of work," Foster said
Sunday as five of the 14 new
recruits swam their first time
trials at the Fletcher High
"We're trying to get good
members who will contribute
to the community.
"A leader [of the class] will
emerge quickly."

corn in the husk along with
the main course. After soak-

Another of his specialties is
Cheesy Potatoes. Herring's

students hope their recycling
program proves contagious.
Fifth-grade teacher Brooke
Axler got the school's program
started after reading that JEA
offers an Earth Day grant each
After she wrote an applica-
tion for the $500 grant to
begin the recycling program,
the school was awarded the
Axler said it's her under-
standing most Duval County
schools don't recycle to the
degree Seabreeze does.
"I know most of us recycle
cardboard. The contract allows
us to recycle plastic and alu-
minum, but most schools
aren't doing it," she said.
Axler knew'a more universal
recycling program, which
included a bin in every class-
room, was launched years ago.
"From what I understand, it
turned into more of a job for
the custodial staff," she said.
"Most people were using it as
a trash bin. Then it became a
job for the custodial staff to
sort through."
Axler said it upset her to see
the amount of waste Seabreeze
produced. The school bought
four 33-gallon trash cans, with
lids and wheels, with the
grant. The cans are in the
school's cafeteria.
"My goal was, even if we're
only doing it in the cafeteria,
then it isn't as much of an
added workload for our custo-
dial staff," said Axler, whose
class helps spearhead the
"There's recycling in the
cafeteria and Ms. Axler's room,

recycle because you're helping

Axler said students take recy-
cling out under the watchful
eye of teacher Don Kraichley.
"It's not the work," said
S raichley, "it's how little work'
it is to do it. It only takes about
15 minutes to gather up all the
recycles out of all our cans."
Along with the barrels in the
cafeteria, there's also a recv-

"Some teachers collect in
their class independently and
take it when they go to lunch,"
said Axler. "We asked that the
cafeteria be the main hub so it
was no extra work for our cus-
todial staff. It was something
the students are doing and that
we all can do."
The Seabreeze total is up to
almost 200 bags.
"We only count them if
they're full," said Axley. "We've
kept track of it on a chart in

Brett Harris is the owner and chef
of one of our community's leading
restaurants. His credentials and -,
experience as a chef are impressive

yourself to a meal at World Grill,

as Executive Chef at the Omni Hotel

There is a lot more to Chef Brett's
story than happens here at World
Grill. This modest Certified
Executive Chef has just returned
from a "Presidential" Assignment in
Washington D.C. He was invited to
the White House to assist with culi-
nary training. "The only thing I love
more than being a chef," he says, "is
training others in the art of fine cui-
sine preparation." In the two week
program in March, Chef Harris, an

worked with "the best of the best"
Navy cooks who had been carefully
screened and selected for the pro-

speaks of this experience, and a previ-

Pentagon, but not because of who he saw or even the
honor this represents. "The teaching aspect is reward-
ing for me," he says. "These cooks are motivated and
eager to progress in their chosen field - the best of the
best - as I said. As we get older, we like to help others."
He was introduced to the enjoyment of cooking as a 13
year old working at a deli in St. Louis. The mentoring
of his employers and his mother, a good cook, set him
on a career course.

Playoff run ends with loss to Palatka

SPORTS WRITER games deep into the state . - ..

PALATKA - Nease High's
2008 baseball season ended on
the same field as it had the
year before.
Only this time, there was
more on the line.
The Panthers' season came
to a close after the team's
fourth loss this year to district
rival Palatka High School. The
3-1 defeat at the Azalea Bowl
in Palatka means the Panthers'
campaign ends in the same
dugout at the same field-as the
2007 season
finale during
the District 5-
4A tournament.
"It was a
great high
school baseball
game," Nease
head coach
Travis Chapman
said following
the loss. "We
had great pitch-
ing, we hit the
ball really well.
It's a game of

lead of the game. After NcNeal
stole second, Brandon Bennett
hit to Will Allen at first, who
tossed the ball to Haga. Haga
and Bennett both fell at the
first base bag, allowing
McNeal to score.
"We just had to keep bat-
tling," Palatka head coach
Matt McCool said. "We knew
Will [Haga] was going to do a
great job, something he's done
all year long for them. We just
had to keep battling, keep
hanging in there and wait for
opportunities to go [our] way.
That's all you can ask for."

Nease High's Brett Mueller squares around to bunt last Friday night against Palatka in the regional semifinal round of the Class 4A
state baseball playoffs. Mueller reached on a bunt single to load the bases, but the Panthers plated only one run in a 3-1 defeat
that ended their season.

Nease was unable to make
anything happen in the sev-
"We did great, we played a
good game," Chapman said.
"They just got a few more hits
than us and their pitchers
threw a great game. We just
got beat by a better team. We
played hard.
"It's a game of baseball. We
didn't throw the game away,
we had no errors, we complet-
ed plays and we just got beat."
The loss ended a turnaround
season which saw Nease cruise
through the district, going
undefeated against District 5-
4A opponents for most of the
year (first district loss came

against Palatka).
After losing just a handful
of seniors to graduation in
2007 and the departure of a
coach, Chapman came in and
built the group into a state-
playoff team.
"I didn't know what to
expect this year," Chapifiii
said. "What I found was nine
seniors willing to learn and
that they cared and were will-
ing to go to battle with each
other. As a coach, that kind of
surprises you."
Zach Gray, a senior, spent
most of the season observing
the Panthers from the dugout
with a shoulder injury.
"We came into this season

with real high expectations,"
Gray said. "We played hard
game in, game out. Will
[Haga] threw a great game
tonight. Palatka just had a few
more hits.
"We knew what to do, we
beat them earlier this year the
first time.we.pagpe out here we
handled them pretty easily,
winning 9-3. We knew we had
it in us, we had the intensity,
the fire to come out here and
play some hard baseball. They
played a great game. They
have a good team over there,
we respect them a lot."
SWhile Palatka moves on
into the regional finals against
Dade City Pasco, McCool

couldn't help but recognize
what his team accomplished
against Nease. After all, it was
McCool's Panthers that were
able to get past a strong Nease
team four times this season.
"I wouldn't say we handled
them, we were just fortunate,"
the Palatka skipper said. "Like
I told coach Chapman, he's
done a fantastic job with that
program over there, putting
together some good players in
a short period of time. We
were fortunate, but unfortu-
nately for them someone had
to lose tonight. We talked
about that and we were both
happy for each other no mat-
ter what happened."

Golfers get in practice swings at TPC Sawgrass

Number of the world's top golfers were out Tuesday morning getting in practice rounds for this week's
Players Championship, which begins Thursday. The Players traditionally features the strongest field in pro-
fessional golf, and even Tiger Woods' absence this year as he recovers from knee surgery hasn't diminished
enthusiasm for the event.

Fantastic weather leads to great catches

Great weather with good
fishing greeted both
inshore and offshore
anglers last Thursday morning.
Outstanding is the only way
to describe the bottom fishing.
Capt. Dennis Young on his
Sea Dancer out ofJax Marine
in Mayport set the pace off-
shore last weekend. Capt.
Dennis, with the Duane
Schmidt party on Sunday,
brought home 10 snapper, five
amberjack, a blackfin and 50
On Thursday, both the
Mayport Princess and the King
Neptune brought home happy
anglers. They helped their
fishermen unload as many as
40 snapper each afternoon
weighing up to 15 pounds,
grouper, amberjack, sea bass
and dozens of big beeliners.
This was the story on the
Princess each afternoon.
Capt. Scott Reynolds and his
crew helped their smiling
anglers string up and ice down
35 snapper on Sunday. In
addition there were three big
grouper, three amberjack and
plenty of beeliners.
Earlier in the week, on
Thursday, in addition to
another excellent catch of
snapper, anglers put 11


grouper up to 20 pounds and
a 25-pound cobia on the
cleaning table.
Capt. David King took
friends fishing on his Crusty
Crab last Friday. Claudia Estes,
Ann White and Melissa
Middlewhite had great action
in the river near the Dames
Point Bridge. They caught
three trout, three drum, 60
croakers, yellowmouth, a
flounder and a pair of man-
grove snapper.
Capt. Willie Ulmer and
Louise Carson fished the river
near the Naval Air Station last
Sunday and caught five reds to
30 inches and seven drum to
12 pounds.

Garvin used crickets for bait
on four-pound line and caught
75 bluegills and shell crackers
at Hanna Park.
Larry "Fishman" Finch and
Tommy Yates used sand fleas
last week on three occasions at
Little Talbot and caught their
limit of pompano on each
Capt. David Sipler with his
guest Dave Colteal fished the
river with live shrimp and
caught three huge trout, two
reds and lots of jacks.
Sheila Reynolds, fishing the
canal with dead bait, weighed
up a seven and three-quarter-
pound trout at B&M.
Dwight Hibbard and his
daughter Candy fishing the
canal with guide John Dyrssen
netted five speckled trout last
Wednesday. Candy had one
that weighed four and a half
pounds. They also caught one
red, a flounder and several
mangrove snapper.
Capt. George Bull and his
friend Johnny Braddock on
the'Bionic Bull last Friday cer-
tainly had a red-hot day. They
used live shrimp and jigs to
capture 22 reds to 26 inches,
four trout, four drum, two
flounder and a blue.
The best out of town fishing
report this past week comes
from James and Tina Gergley.
They worked several spots in
the Keys last week near Florida
Bay on their Head Hunter and
caught 38 trout (19 to 24
inches), sheepshead, to seven
pounds and black drum to ten
pounds. On another short trip
while they were there they
picked up six bonefish to six
pounds, mangrove snapper,
dog snapper and a 'cuda.
Last Wednesday and
Thursday were active days on
the Jacksonville Beach Pier.
Black drum, sheepshead, whit-
ing, flounder and pompano
showed up in coolers all dur-
ing the two-day period.
Capt. Kirk Walsh with the
Jerry Mallard party last
Wednesday at the end of the
rocks had to work hard but it
paid off later in the morning
with a catch of eight reds to
33 inches, two trout and five

Will an unknown once again win The Players title?

W ho's your pick in this
week's gamble they
call The Players
Championship? Phil
Mickelson? K.J. Choi? Geoff
Ogilvy? Adam Scott? Some
darkhorse you've never heard
Don't laugh at "darkhorses,"
one of them just one the
Kentucky Derby. Well, maybe
not in the conventional sense,
but Big Brown was dark
enough, and he was surely
horse enough.
But in golf lingo, we mean a
hoss nobody thinks has a
chance of succeeding this week
out at TPC Sawgrass. Or at
least a players nobody has
thought of at all until report
card day on Sunday,
By that we reference a player
like Craig Perks, winner here
in Ought Two, who prior to
the tournament was no more
known in these parts than his
great grandma. No offense


intended toward Grandma,
Perks, who no doubt is a nice
doll, as writer Damon Runyon
would have put it, but how
many golf tournaments had
she won?
For that matter, how many
events has Perks won since he
upset the field and wagerers

here in 2002? Fact is, Craig did
a Mark Hayes (winner in 1977)
and vanished into the Twilight
Zone after his shocking victory
here, the first time, incidental-
ly, this tournament was played
in the Sawgrass confines.
For years there were rumors
of Hayes having been spotted
here or there, but no success.
He was like the horse a certain
writer we know (no names,
please) wagered on that never
came in. Search parties were
sent out, to no avail. Rewards
were posted, but the losing
horse never turned up.
Not so with Hayes, who later
made a comeback of sorts and
eventually won again.
One scribe suggested the
shock of Hayes winning the
1977 Players Championship
caused him to go into an
amnesia coma, explaining his
missing years. At least Hayes, a
quiet, inoffensive Oklahoman,
did resurface and wasn't like
the infamous'Judge Crater

who got into a New York taxi-
cab one day back in 1930 and
was never seen or heard from
This is not to put Craig Perks
in that class; simply to point
out that he is one of those
players who came here, made
a splash, then fell off the radar
screen with respect to winning
subsequent PGA tournaments.
Then we have Trevor
Immelman,. the young South
African who shocked staid old
Augusta National by winning
the Masters without even a
pedigree to his name. Rarely
heard of at Augusta.
Can this gifted, but previ-
ously practically unknown
golfer do it again here this
And what about old faithfuls
like Ernie Els, Mark
Calcavecchia, Davis Love III,
Sergio Garcia, runner-up last
year by two strokes, and reign-
ing champ Phil Mickelson?
Or how about Steve

Elkington, who's done it
before and knows the ropes
like a sailor? Or Vijay Singh,
who has more fans than a
milkman on a cat farm? Isn't it
finally time for the Fijian, who
presently resides in Ponte
Vedra Beach, to win this
And as long as we're looking
for local heroes; what about
Fred Funk? Name one fan who
hasn't cheered for the diminu-
tive and personable Fred lots
of times. He did it three years
ago and can repeat. Then
there's Jim Furyk, the trans-
planted Pennsylvanian who
also makes his home in Ponte
Vedra Beach. He's among the
best in the world but hasn't
cracked the Sawgrass win col-
umn yet. Maybe the fates will
realize this and do him a long
overdue favor.
Here's a question we'd like
the experts who run this tour-
nament to answer: Will play-
ing in May cause the PGA,

media, Congress, Dr. Phil, the
United Nations and network
television to immediately
declare The Players
Championship a "major" tour-
nament? Will it mean victories
for all those players who have
been unable to win here?
We were told moving to
May would solve everyone's
problems and that there would
be no more bad weather. Why
did we wait so long for
The ghosts of Bob Jones and
Cliff Roberts should be hon-
ored again for the "new'
Players Championship and
their work to bring this tour-
nament into being. And the
greats - Ben Hogan, Sam
Snead, Arnold Palmer and Jack
Nicklaus -*who gave it so
much even though handi-
capped by having to play in
March should be praised now
so that younger generations
will know who they were and
what they meant to the game.

"walk down the boardwalk" in the permanent exhibition; see the quality of the artwork submitted by the Fletcher Fine Arts -
Department, wander past photos and memorabilia depicting days at Fletcher. Upstairs, there will be yearbooks and other pho-

Big crowds, small waves on

Saturday; reverse on Sunday


Though few were there to
actually see it, competitors
took advantage of some of the
best waves and conditions in
recent memory Sunday morn-
ing for the finals in several
divisions of the 25th annual
WaveMasters Surf Contest.
I The scene just South of the
Jacksonville Beach Pier was
quite a bit different than the
day before, when hundreds of
spectators turned out for pre-
liminary heats of the
WaveMasters event, only to
witness an uncooperative
Atlantic Ocean produce just
the occasional decent-sized
Nevertheless, surfers sol-
diered on through Saturday's
heats and were rewarded with
consistent three- to five-foot .
waves Sunday morning. To
take advantage of the condi-
tions, finals in the men's and
women's shortboard pro divi-
sions were moved up and took
place first.
By noon, however, the big .
waves had subsided and the
sea was mostly calm for finals
in the longboard and tandem
The weekend contest fea-
tured some of the area's top
surfing talent, as well as kids,
seniors (ages 35 to 49) and,
legends in action.
This year's contest was dedi-
cated to the memory of Jed
Davis, one of North Florida's
top all-time competitors,
according to WaveMasters
president Mitch Kaufmann.
Davis died last December in a
traffic accident. Kaufmann
said he couldn't recall Davis
ever missing a WaveMasters
In conjunction with the surf
contest, WaveMasters also
conducted a raffle to raise
money for local charities. The
raffle featured thousands of
dollars worth of surfboards
and accessories, Kaufmann
Mote information about the
WaveMasters organization and
its history is available at the
group's website: wavemas-
