Principal Susan Sailor convened a school-wide assembly Wednesday afternoon to tell the student body that one of their classmates took her own life the previous night. Sailor began the meeting by telling the students, This is not an assembly I ever wanted to have, according to one person who attended the meeting. The principal also instructed students to take out their cell phones, turn the devices on and enter a crisis hotline phone number into their contact lists. Superintendent Charlie Van Zant also addressed the students, encouraging them to talk to school personnel whenever they felt depressed or under stress. We are here to help, he said. Earlier in the day, during a community Lenten Lunch at Trinity Baptist Church, Van Zant told the crowd about the tragedy and invited local youth pastors to the school assembly. In February, another Keystone High School student took his own life. According to one school district source, the two suicide victims were close. Several students said that throughout the week, the mood on campus grew increasingly somber, particularly on Friday when several incidents occurred at the school. One student, who is dual enrolled at Santa Fe College, said she was off-campus Friday morning but returned to the high school that afternoon, and was shocked by the level of tension at the school. Clay County School District spokesperson Gavin Rollins said some students misinterpreted an increased uniformed presence of Clay County Sheriffs deputies at the school on Friday as a sign of trouble. He added that on Friday, school officials called 911 to treat a student that was BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The three leading agencies of a project that would harvest storm water from the First Coast Expressway and pump it to Keystone-area lakes are now planning an alternative that would instead keep the harvested water in northern Clay County for use there. The Clay County Utility Authority, the St. Johns Water Management District and Floridas Department of Transportation provided major funding for the first study of the project. The studys author, Orlando consulting firm GAI concluded that the proposal could bring 12 million gallons a day to Keystone lakes. During a Feb. 8 CCUA meeting, GAI urged the agencies to move forward with a second study that would draft a conceptual design, prepare preliminary cost estimates and draft a cost/benefit analysis for DOT. However, during a March 12 CCUA meeting, the utilitys Executive Director Tom Morris told his board of supervisors that in senior staff meetings between the utility and water management district, participants moved toward an alternative that would harvest the water from the expressway and divert it to CCUA reservoirs instead of piping it south to Keystone Heights. We want this to be one of the options as an alternative water supply, said Morris of the project. Given the choice of treating sea water, water from the St. Johns River or Black Creek, or treating this water, Dave (Chief Engineer Dave Bolam) has said, hands down, he would much rather design a plant to treat this water and actually use it as a drinking water source. Morris said DOT officials also had reservations about pumping the harvested water south to Keystone Heights. They were very, very hesitant Audubon names Brown Conservationist of the Year Starke couple killed in Putnam Hall accidentBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A Starke couple was killed when their motorcycle collided with a car in Putnam Hall on March 12. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Elbert Dave Peace, 64, was driving a 2004 Harley Davidson westbound on SR 100 at 6:05 p.m. Lon Seibert, 57, of Grandin was driving a 1984 Mercedes Benz eastbound. As the two vehicles approached one another, Seibert attempted a left turn onto Putnam Loop Road, driving into the path of the motorcycle, which struck the left side of the Mercedes. Both the driver of the Harley, as well as a passenger, 55-yearold Christine Ann Peace, were thrown from the bike. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger was transported to UF Health with critical injuries and later died. According to the FHP report, Siebert was not injured in the collision, the motorcycle riders were not wearing helmets and charges are pending. Dave Peace was born in Waycross, Ga. and served as a supply officer in the US Navy. He settled in Starke after BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Santa Fe Audubon named Claude Brown as its 2014 Conservationist of the Year during the organizations fifth annual meeting on March 11. Brown is the president of the Putnam Land Conservancy. He is also a chemist with the University of Florida Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences Lake Watch. That program monitors the health of Floridas lakes and enlists volunteers to collect data. The Putnam Land Conservancy is a nonprofit, local land trust whose mission is to protect the natural, historic, scenic, and recreational resources in and around Putnam County through land acquisition and donations of land. Brown was instrumental in the founding of the Putnam Land Conservancy and has worked to further its goal to acquire and conserve land in Putnam County. Since 2010, the conservancy has acquired over 320 acres in eight counties through its targeted subdivisions initiative. Under the plan, owners of parcels, typically in undeveloped or sparsely populated subdivisions, receive a tax deduction by donating land to the nonprofit. The conservancy has also been active in setting up conservation easements, allowing land owners to retain an interest in their properties while also lowering estate and property taxes by restricting the lands future uses. The conservancy also partners with other groups to manage lands. It is working with the Nature Conservancy to restore the Van Meirop Nature Park and has partnered with the city of Hawthorne and Friends of Little Orange Creek to complete a community resource and environmental nature center on the 1,300-acre Little Orange Creek Nature Park east of Hawthorne. Joyce King, president of Santa Fe Audubon, contributed to this story. Santa Fe Audubons Conservationist of the year, Claude Brown, along with board members of the Putnam Land Conservancy.

Clay Comm. hires expert on regulating sex shopsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County Commissioners voted to hire a First Amendment specialist to look at its current ban on sexually oriented businesses, and to recommend whether or not to replace the 27-year-old law. Michael Kahn is a Melbourne-based lawyer who has represented several cities in drafting and defending ordinances that regulate adultoriented businesses. Commissioners first looked at its current outright ban on sexually oriented businesses last November after a potential operator of an adult-themed enterprise telephoned county staff and asked about its ordinance. County attorney Mark Scruby told commissioners that based on case law, the countys current ban on sex shops would likely not survive a court challenge, because it prohibits protected speech under the First Amendment. He added that although the county could not ban adultoriented businesses, it could, through zoning laws, regulate the time, place and manner such businesses operate. Based on the comments of School board candidate puts $100,000 into campaign accountBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A candidate running for the Clay County School board put $100,000 of his own money into his campaign account. Kenny Leigh of Fleming Island is seeking the District 1 seat currently held by Janice Kerekes. He is the senior partner of Kenny Leigh and Associates, a family law practice representing men only. The firm has offices in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, Gainesville, Daytona Beach, Boca Raton and Ft. Walton Beach. Other candidates in the District 1 race include Kerekes, who has raised $14,120 and Amber Shepherd, who has raised $10,704. Kerekes backers include Steve Boccieri, Clay County Republican Executive Committee Treasurer ($500), Orange Park Mayor James Renninger ($100), Clay County School Board Member Carol Studdard ($500), former school superintendent Ben Wortham ($500), Clay Education PAC ($1,000), Clay Education Association President Renna Lee. Paiva ($1,000), school Planning comm. chair complains of zoning creepBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The chair of the Clay County Planning Commission supported a change to an already existing plan for a commercial development at the corner of U.S. 17 and Creighton Road, but not before complaining of methods developers used to get the rezoning approved. The planning board joined Chair Ralph Puckhaber in approving a change in zoning for a parcel just south of the U.S. 17 bridge crossing Doctors Inlet. Creighton Road Development Inc. plans three buildings, parking and a roundabout on the 3.35-acre site. Developers had already obtained approval for the planned commercial development but returned to the planning board on March 11 for approval to add two bank drivethroughs to its proposal. Peter Davis, chair of the Fleming Island Advisory Committee told the planning commission his group did not object to the drive-through lanes. He added that area residents were more concerned about reckless driving of customers exiting a nearby Gate convenience store than they were about the proposed development. Puckhaber, in supporting the Clay Charter Comm. concludes business with no amendmentsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Charter Review Committee voted to conclude its deliberations without sending any charter amendments to voters. The commission meets every four years to consider changes to the countys governing document. Amendments to the charter may also be proposed through citizen ballot initiatives. Voters must approve all changes to the charter. The current charter review commission has met nine times since October and considered 15 amendments including appointing the sheriff and school superintendent, changing term limits for county commissioners, imposing term limits for constitutional officers and placing a cap on county expenditures. During its March 17 meeting, the panel voted down a proposal to create a Clay County Human Relations Commission. The charter commission will convene for a final time on April 7 to approve its lawyers final bill and to approve its own final report to county commissioners. 6th candidate enters District 4 county comm. raceBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The most crowded field on the 2014 Clay County ballot grew even larger when a sixth candidate filed papers with the supervisor of elections office to enter the race. Georgi R. Black owns a barber shop near the intersection of CR 220 and Henley Road in Middleburg. District 4 covers western clay county, including Clay Hill, Kingsley Lake and Keystone Heights.

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

He said the presence of a Clay County Fire Rescue ambulance on campus probably unnerved the students who saw it. Several students also said irresponsible postings on Facebook created anxiety at the school. Everybody is posting something on Facebook, said one student, and a lot of what theyre saying is not true. Another student said that particularly vitriol postings on the social media platform have drawn a response from law enforcement and school administrators which further compounded tensions on campus. They cant take any risks, said one student of the aggressive response by school administrators. Weve already had two. Rollins agreed that Facebook postings have been a source of concern for school officials. However he disputed the claim by some students and parents that bullying, some on social media, was the cause of the two students suicides. He said the sheriffs office has found no evidence that bullying played a role in the deaths. Rollins also countered another rumor surrounding the tragedies: the claim that a group a students made a suicide pact. The sheriffs office has said there is no indication of an organized effort, he said. However, another school district official said administrators drafted a watch list of students they felt were particularly at risk, and deputies visited the homes of some of those individuals. The district also brought in administrators from Clay High School, who took over some of the functions of the Keystone Heights staff, allowing Keystone administrators to focus on the crisis at the school. On Sunday evening, dozens of people gathered around the schools flag pole for a prayer vigil. One speaker at the event asked the crowd to support the schools principal. Susan Sailor has taken a lot of unfair criticism this week, the man said. After the remarks, participants broke into applause to show their support for the principal. Rollins also said that much of the criticism aimed at school and district officials on Facebook is unfair. We are doing everything we can, he said. We are looking out for each other and focusing on positive action. Rollin added that as many as 20 grief counselors have been on campus throughout the week. He also said the district used automated telephone calls during the week, especially on Friday, when there was so much turmoil on campus. Van Zant is also focusing on positive action. In an email to the Monitor, he wrote, Its been a tough month for our community. We have been reminded in tragic ways of the very real hurt and pain that is all around us. As we grieve with those who are grieving and support each other we also seek to move forward in a positive way. We have taken specific steps to provide resources and help for those in need. We have a long range plan in place to continue that support. As students go on spring break we will still have resources available for families. Several teachers and students said most people on campus were just trying to make it to Friday, March 21, a teacher planning day. The following week is spring break. Van Zant included several resource phone numbers in his email. They are: Clay Behavioral 352-4735201. Hours 11-4 MondayFriday.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24-hour hotline : 1-800-273-TALK (8255) www. suicidepreventionlifeline.org Several students said that emotions on campus ranged from shock and despair on Wednesday to confusion and fear on Friday. to get involved with what they characterized as a water war, recalled Morris of his discussions with DOT officials, taking water from here and moving it down there for essentially a recreational use. He added that chances appeared remote that the three agencies would participate in the proposed pipeline to the Lake Region, noting its $50 million price tag. If that project gets funded, Morris said of the transmission lines to Keystone Heights, it will probably get funded by some parties other than the people that are now talking: us, DOT and the water management district. Morris said that even under the new plan, Keystone lakes will still benefit. Its not as if they (the lakes) will be completely left alone, he said. If for example, we use this water, we could replace what we are drawing out of the aquifer now, with what we could collect from the horizontal wells. That, in and of itself, will help the lake levels, reduce pressure on the aquifer and help the lakes regain altitude. One supervisor asked Morris, So is the pipeline to Keystone iffy? Yes sir, Morris replied. Its a very expensive-a very, very expensive undertaking. Morris said he has also asked GAI to scale back the second study, originally projected to cost $800,000, to reflect the reduced scope of the project. During GAIs Feb. 8 presentation, the consultants recommended the same participants who funded the first study: CCUA, DOT, the water management district, Clay County, the City of Keystone Heights and the Save Our Lakes Organization, also fund the second study. However, Morris said that with the change in plans, he anticipated that only CCUA, DOT and the water management No Coincidence performs at the Lakeside Music Festival on Saturday, March 15 in Melrose.

The market is sponsoring a Kids Day on March 22. around a dozen local pastors who addressed the commission during its Nov. 11 meeting, commissioners asked Scruby to take another look at the law and to seek the counsel of constitutional law experts. During the March 11 board meeting, Scruby told commissioners he discovered Kahns work after talking to a St. Augustine official. Kahn had helped that municipality draft its ordinance which regulates sexually oriented businesses. Commissioner Ronnie Robinson said drafting an ordinance to replace the countys current outright ban would be a waste of taxpayer money. Ive got a perfectly good ordinance in place that nobody has challenged since 1987, he said. Robinson said that if commissioners followed Scrubys recommendation of using zoning laws to regulate adult businesses it could still face litigation. He cited the case of a Baymeadows Road bar in Jacksonville that is suing the city. After Jacksonvilles planning commission denied a permit that would have allowed bikini-clad women to dance at the bar, the business sued in federal court. A district judge ruled in favor of the bar, claiming that the city ordinance the planning commission relied upon to deny the permit was unconstitutionally overbroad. The city is appealing the decision. Commissioner Diane Hutchings said that she, like Robinson supports the countys current ordinance. She added that the countys ban may be challenged because of urbanization brought by the construction of the First Coast Expressway. I am very concerned that when the outer beltway comes in, we are going to see some changes in our county, she said, and being able to control those changes on the front end is a lot more effective than controlling them on the back end. Hutchings added that every attorney and law firm that Scuby consulted, including the conservative, Christian-based American Center for Law and Justice, told him the countys current ordinance would not survive a court challenge. Commissioner Chereese Stewart said another attorney which specializes in religious freedom and sanctity-of-life cases, Richard Mast of Liberty Counsel, wrote in an opinion that the way to keep sexuallyoriented businesses in the right place is by regulating them. Commissioner Wendell Davis said that his personal beliefs on adult-oriented businesses line up with Robinsons. If I could be a citizen, I would vote no, he said of changing the countys current ban on such establishments. I wish it wasnt on the agenda during our term, but it is and were here. I think we at least have to listen to someone with expertise in addition to Mr. Scruby. The board voted 3-1 to hear Kahn at its April 8 meeting. Robinson voted against the motion and Stewart left the meeting before the vote. In other news from the March 11 Clay County Commission meeting:Director of Planning and Zoning retiresThe board presented Mike Kloehn, outgoing director of planning and zoning, with a plaque thanking him for his service to the county. Kloehn came to Clay County from Osceola County seven years ago. Director of Economic and Development Services Holly Parrish said Kloehn is a true professional. Every decision that he makes is well thought out, she said. He has been a very good consensus builder during somewhat controversial rezoning issues. He has always tried to see the other side, take that side into account and tries to bring people together.Commission dedicates 28th annual Clay County Agricultural FairCommissioner Chereese Stewart read a proclamation recognizing the fairs board, volunteers, and supporters. The fair will run at the county fairgrounds west of Green Cove Springs from April 3 through April 12. Fair Director Pete Sutton reminded Stewart that she was an exhibitor at the first fair. He thanked her for her continued support. Sutton also said that 45 percent of fair patrons come from outside Clay County. Commissioner Wendell Davis said the fair has earned a reputation as a safe, fun and family-oriented event. Regional council completes strategic planNortheast Florida Regional Council Chief Executive Brian Teeple told Clay County commissioners that the council recently completed its strategic regional policy plan. The document outlines the councils goals, which cover community and affordable housing, economic development, emergency preparedness, energy, health, natural resources and transportation. Teeple reminded commissioners that under Florida law, the countys comprehensive plan must align with the councils strategic plan. He also said he did not see any conflicts between the two documents. Teeple said seven counties in the region formed the council in 1977 and that it now serves Baker, Clay, Nassau, Duval, St. Johns, Flagler and Clay counties, in addition to 27 municipalities. He also gave commissioners an update of the councils recent activities, including its work with Congress in reforming the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act, hosting a water supply workshop, staffing the countys mitigation task force, updating the regional evacuation study, running the Northeast Florida leadership academy and coordinating two emergency management exercises which simulated an outbreak of weaponized anthrax in Clay County and a train derailment and chlorine release in St. Augustine.COUPLEContinued from 1A SHOPContinued from 1A See COMMISSION, 4A

Mercy Network leader: 750 families attended outreach eventsPatrick Hayle, CEO of Mercy Support Services, gave commissioners an overview of his organization and said local government, faith-based nonprofits and businesses must work together to make Clay County a caring and compassionate place. Hayle said 750 families attended his organizations two outreach programs last year. It is holding its 2014 spring outreach on March 28 at Pinewood Presbyterian Church in Middleburg. Hayle said Mercy Network was founded in 2004 to help the homeless and to combat scams that were victimizing the homeless. In 2010, Clay County churches, for the first time, worked through Mercy Network to feed temporary laborers housed at extended-stay hotels. Hayle said wages earned by the laborers barely covered their housing costs, leaving nothing for food and other expenses. That year also marked the first time area churches made a continuous financial commitment to the organization and Mercy Networks venture into the housing arena, providing temporary accommodations for the homeless. Hayle said that through 2011, the organization assisted 29 families to selfsufficiency. He said that this year, 49 families are in the organizations case management system. In 2011, Mercy Support Services was formed. Orange Park Medical Center provided office space for the non-profit and Mercy launched its referral call center. In 2012, the Clay County Housing Authority established a $520,000 line of credit for Mercy to acquire additional housing for the homeless. Hayle also said that 50 percent of the residents in the three Orange Park extendedstay hotels are trapped, making just enough to pay for lodging but unable to save money for permanent housing. Commissioner Doug Conkey said recipients of Mercy Support Services dont receive a handout. The folks that are utilizing your services have to progress toward self-sufficiency, so that they are taking the services you are providing and reinventing themselves to be able to support themselves, he said to Hayle.In other matters, commissioners also:Approved a budget amendment allowing the sheriffs office to sell $28,000 worth of ammunition and use the proceeds of the sales to purchase TASERS. The ammunition was for weapons the office no longer uses. Approved an extension of its contract with Florida Blue to manage the countys selfinsured health insurance plan. The county pays Florida Blue $38.11 per employee per month to manage the fund, and as part of the extension, the company agreed to donate $100,000 to the fund for employee wellness programs. Approved a $23,084.34 supplemental agreement to the CR 209 widening project. The additional work will mitigate drainage problems in the Rock Bible Church parking lot and at another location along the widening project. Approved a contract with Pacesetter Personnel Services of Houston to provide temporary labor for the countys recyclables operations. Pacesetter offered to provide the labor at $11.50 an hour. Other bidders included JAG Professional Services of Dayton, Ohio ($11 an hour) and Labor Ready Southeast Inc. of Orange Park ($11.86 per hour). In a memorandum to commissioners, Alan Altman, the countys director of environmental services wrote that even though JAG Professional Services was the low bidder, JAG has not demonstrated that they are authorized to do business in the state of Florida, nor has staff been able to make contact with the only reference provided in their bid package that they are doing business within the state of Florida. Altman also told commissioners that the countys recyclables processing operation now has 11 full-time employees, down from a high of 18. He wrote that managers have not replaced employees who have left the department because managers anticipate the county may soon outsource the function. However, in the meantime, the workload is now too much for the 11 employees to handle, even with overtime. Accepted the resignation of Brenna Van Ness from the Tourist Development Council. In an email to county Tourist Director Jaclyn Slaybaugh, Van Ness wrote that she was moving out of the state. change, also complained about what he called zoning creep, the practice of developers seeking approval for moderate zoning changes, then returning to the planning commission with more drastic upgrades to the original plan. Its get what you can get at the time and then come back a few years later and add stuff you couldnt get the first time, he said of the practice. Puckhaber said the Creighton Road development is an example of the scheme. If it would have originally had drive-in banking in it, the original PCD (planned commercial development) probably would have not gone through, he said.County budget committee approves settlement with auto repair shopBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Commissions Budget, Personnel and Policy Committee approved a $10,000 settlement offer from a lawsuit of an Orange Park auto repair shop. Jays Total Car Care claimed in court documents that from 2007 through 2010, its 357 Blanding Blvd. location flooded due to negligence by the county. The business claimed it incurred $27,948.24 in damages because the county failed to take action to prevent flooding on the property. It added that $15,632.74 of the costs were fees from the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation for the cleanup of waste oil that leaked from a tank due to the flooding. County Finance Director Don Moore recommended commissioners accept the settlement and told committee members the county is admitting no culpability with the acceptance of the settlement. During its March 17 meeting, the committee also: Accepted a $408,395 bid from Beaver Base for supplying the county with lime rock base for roads. Other bidders included Liberty Trucking ($411,325), Pritchett Trucking ($422,680), MidFlorida Hauling ($458,730) and MJ Stavola Farms ($478,825). Gave permission for county animal care and control to apply for a Petsmart Charities grant The grant would fund the Spay Clay program that assists low-income pet owners with sterilizing their pets. In 2013 the county received a similar grant for $100,000 and used the money to sterilize 1,953 animals. Alan Altman, director of environmental services, wrote in a memorandum to commissioners that animal intakes at the countys shelters decreased to 3,650 in 2013, down from 5,679 in 2011. While this is due to a combination of programs, he wrote, the Spay Clay program has certainly contributed to this decline. Approved a $26,600 renewal with ESRI Inc. for geographic information systems mapping software. Troy Nagle, director of management information systems, said the annual maintenance fee of $26,600 for 2014-2015 is $3,000 less than the previous year because it does not include some licenses the county determined it was not using and therefore did not renew. Approved three studies for the Transportation Planning Organizations unified planning work program. The North Florida TPO plans transportation projects for Duval, Nassau, Clay and St. Johns counties. Every six months it updates its unified planning work program and asks its member counties to recommend studies that the work program should undertake. The budget, personnel and policy committee endorsed three studies recommended by county staff that includes a corridor traffic study for CR 220 between US 17 and the East/West Parkway in Fleming Island, a corridor traffic study for Wells Road between US 17 and SR. 21 in Orange Park and a corridor traffic study for College Drive between CR 220 and SR 21 in Lakeside. Approved a plan to open the pool at Camp Chowenwaw for the summer of 2014. Commissioners budgeted funds to fill in the pool in the US 17 campground, but County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos told committee members that the facility has two years left before major repairs are necessary and that the pool is one of the camps major assets. She recommended using funds originally earmarked to fill in the pool this year to instead operate it during the 2014 summer. She added that $60,000 would likely be required to upgrade the board attorney Bruce Bickner ($500) and the Lake Education Association ($100). Shepherds supporters include Clay County Tax Collector Jimmy Weeks ($50), W.W. Gay Mechanical Contractor ($1,000), various subsidiaries of Palatkas Beck Auto Group ($2,000), Corner Stone Homes ($500), Broadus-Raines Funeral Home ($200), veterinarian David H.

Stressful experiences have big, immediate effects on childrens healthScience has shown that children who experience stressful events are more likely to face poor health outcomes as adults, but new research shows the effects may show up much sooner in fact, almost immediately. Researchers at the University of Florida discovered that when children experience three or more stressful events, they are six times more likely to suffer from a mental, physical or learning disorder than children who didnt face these traumatic experiences, said Melissa Bright, a research coordinator for the UF Institute of Child Health Policy, or ICHP. Bright will present her findings at the American Psychosomatic Societys annual meeting on March 12 in San Francisco. The kids who have the highest number of adverse experiences have the highest likelihood of having multiple conditions, Bright said. It is not one poor health outcome; it is a whole slew of poor outcomes across the board. UF researchers analyzed data collected as part of the National Survey for Child Health, which included nearly 96,000 children from across the United States. The survey contains data on the number of adverse experiences the children faced, including parental divorce, economic hardship, exposure to domestic and neighborhood violence, poor caregiver mental health, exposure to drug abuse and having a parent in jail. The parents also reported on any conditions their children had. According to the study, between 11 and 24 percent of parents reported that their children had been diagnosed with at least one disorder. About 4 percent of parents reported that their children had at least one disorder from all three categories mental, learning and physical. Children who had faced adverse experiences were more likely to have a disorder in every category than children who had not. The culprit could be chronic toxic stress, which researchers believe prompts changes to the bodys developing neuroendocrine and immune systems, Bright said. These changes can lead to poor regulation of the stress response and a decreased ability to fight disease. In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement endorsing increased efforts to combat the effects of toxic stress on healthy brain growth in children. These adverse experiences are affecting multiple domains of health simultaneously, she said. We need a holistic approach to tackle this issue. Although the study showed that adverse experiences are linked to an increased risk for various health conditions, the researchers dont yet know if those experiences cause the conditions to occur, Bright said. It is also possible that having a child with multiple health conditions puts serious financial and emotional strains on families, making them more susceptible to adverse experiences such as caregiver mental illness and divorce, she said. We are currently collecting data for a new study in which we plan to examine this possibility. In the next phase of her research, Bright also hopes to look more closely at the neuroendocrine and immune system changes and their link to poor health outcomes in childhood. If we can identify these changes early on, then we can develop interventions to hopefully prevent some of these poor outcomes, she said. 6A Lake Region Monitor Thursday, March 20, 2014 LRM Legals 3/20/14 NOTICE OF PUBLIC AUCTION Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Florida Self Storage Facility Act Statutes (Section 83.801,83.809), Lake Area Storage, LLC, will sell the following items to the highest and best bidder on Thursday, April 3,2014 at 9;00 A.M.

It starts with all the riders (that want to participate) circling the arena once on horseback to an upbeat western song. The two riders with the Clubs Flag and the American Flag (usually the King and Queen of the club) remain in the arena after. The Clubs Flag moves to the center of the ring while the music changes to the National Anthem performed by LeAnn Rimes. After the National Anthem has finished, a prayer is said to ask for God to watch over all the horses and riders and to pray for healing and safety for those that have been injured or are going through hard times. It really is a site to behold, especially in todays times. Once the opening ceremonies are completed, the real fun begins and the barrel racing horses are ready to run! Recently, however, there have been numerous occasions where people have been discriminated against by one person in the club, casting a dark cloud over everything the club does. A board member at the riding club has taken it upon himself to hand judgment down on individuals that dont suit his beliefs or his variation of who should be allowed to attend the clubs events. I, being a homosexual man in a long term relationship, found myself and my partner to be the targets of such an instance on March 1st, 2014. My name is Keith Warren, and many people in the community know me. I was raised in Bradford County and attended Bradford County schools. I have also been attending events at the Bradford Riding Club for over 25 years now. I always try to help people when they need it and try to keep a smile on my face with something good to say to everyone I come across. For me, this was a completely appalling and demeaning event. My partners name is Michael Young. He is originally from Iowa and has taken an interest in horses and learning as much as he can about them and the sport of barrel racing. He is an outstanding man that is always there for our friends and his family. He gives everyone a fair chance and even if they mess up, he still offers another shot at a friendship. All in all, we arent hateful or spiteful people. We just wanted to take part in a club that has meant a lot to me in my life and try to make a difference in the lives of those around us. The night started off well. My partner and I had been voted in at the January members meeting and had volunteered to work the kitchen as part of our membership. So, we were working the kitchen and one of the board members (the Arena Director) had approached the counter and requested a beverage. That was the job we were asked to do, so we greeted him and proceeded to have his beverage made. In the meantime, he proceeded to ask us if we were gay, which would have been fine, but he used some very derogatory terms and then told us that we were not Disappointed with Bradford Riding Club in the midst of discrimination to touch anything that was to be given to him as he didnt want a gay person touching his food or beverages. I was speechless. All I could do was remain silent and smile. This is 2014 and although I know people are all raised differently and have their own beliefs, I thought that respecting another person was considered the right thing a long time ago! After he received his beverage, I presented the issue with the President of the club who did all she could to correct the situation. She initially came back to me and informed me that without witnesses, the board could not do anything. I understood this and had started to tuck the issue away in my mind. Shortly afterward, however, the board members that were present that night had approached him and he admitted to what was said. As the board began to discuss the issue with him, he offered to leave and give up his key. This offer was, to my shock and dismay, refused by the board. The President of the club came back to the kitchen to inform my partner and me of what the final verdict in the situation had been, and both of us were livid. Here we were, standing in the kitchen selling food and beverages for the Bradford County Riding Club in order to keep our membership with the club in good standing, and we are being discriminated against by one of the clubs own board members! Not only were we being discriminated against, but the rest of the board had decided that no punishment was necessary in a situation like this! Since that night, my partner and I have not been contacted by the board members that were at the Riding Club that night and we have not been issued an apology from the board member that had so much to say about our personal life. Our belief on this matter is that the club has no interest in the well-being and overall safety and security of its members. If there was any concern within the board, it was brushed under the rug in the hopes of the issue going away. Unfortunately for them, we are not willing to go away. We want this issue placed in the public eye. If you have ever been affected by discrimination, you know how serious this is and how damaging an event like this can be. We arent asking for this man to be placed in jail or the club to be shut down. We just want the right thing to be done and nobody else to ever feel as if they are not welcome. Our country has come too far for society to slip back into the ways of segregation (for any race, religion, sexuality, or gender). My partner and I just want it known that we were not treated fairly as a fellow human being should be. The Bradford Riding Clubs motto is Just for the Fun of It and I am still asking myself, What is the fun in discrimination? We were very respectful to all members at the club and worked our shifts. We just dont know what more we could have done. Michael and I would like to say a special Thank You, to all the people that have supported us and kept our spirits high during this time. It is in your darkest hours that you find out who is standing in your corner. From our hearts to yours, thank you for all the kind words and outpouring of support. We really do appreciate it! Submitted by: Keith Warren Keystone Heights Dear Editor: Now I know how stories take on a life of their own. You start out with a short article about corruption in a small town and a comment that blows up into a cause. That comment, from an elected official, said Hampton will cease to exist if they do not behave. Of course Hampton will continue to exist and the state or county taking their city charter would be rare but now the stage is set. The state and then national media have something to run with. Imagine a town so criminal and bad that big brother has to step in and end it all. Bad news sells and this is bad news with a whole town indicted for sleaziness. Next month it will another person or place that excites us and makes us go how could it be so bad, we would never allow that? Having worked in this small town for almost the last thirty years I can tell you most of this story is just that, a story. This is really about a small town steeped in poverty just hangin on like most little towns in America the last few years. Early on Hampton boomed awhile with banks and hotels, a train stopping and strong rural economy. Then one day a major road bypassed it and you have what happened to thousands of little towns like it. Left behind when the cars went elsewhere. Hampton also drew attention because it is between two of the most famous speed traps in America. I put quotes around it because speed traps are places that used to lock you up if you didnt have the cash. Neither is a speed trap. The highway going through them is basically an interstate highway and the locals are trying to slow them down. There are enough signs to warn you and having driven through them most of my adult life I can say all you do is slow down for the speed limit. Hampton tried doing the ticket thing on 301 and that angered some people. The intersection they covered was dangerous. A new stoplight was put in and large trucks routinely ran it because they could not slow down from 65+ in time to stop. I go through that intersection 6-10 times a week and NEVER pull out on the green until I see them stopping. What I believed happened in Hampton is someone with power received a ticket and not enough How Hampton became the next big (bad) thing respect from the local marshal of Hampton and the hammer came down. All of a sudden many Hamptonites were complaining about the corruption and the guys in the white hats swooped in to save them. Yes, and I have a bridge to sell you in the Santa Fe Swamp. The big thing is where did the money go? My comment is what money. Hampton had revenue from those tickets. Most of that went to the state or county. The rest paid those extra officers and gas. The other is the money from the water system. Not much there. The fingers point to a city manager and son. Everyone knows that 95% or more of that went for gas, and a deal it was as Hampton had much cheaper gas than Alachua County. I know these people in Hampton. I have taught many of them and now their children. No elected official is getting rich or even comfortable stealing from the bulging coffers of The City of Hampton. Most of those city people from the manager to the council people did those jobs because most people did not want to mess with it. They always say follow the money trail. You first have to have money to find a trail. I think this trail leads a different way. Someone was treated unfairly and Hampton became the target. Yes, records were poorly kept and Hampton probably should not have followed the leads of Waldo in police work but this great sport of holding Hampton up as some sort of southern cess pool of crime is just the media running with a comment after finding an easy target. The people I know in Hampton are good folks from the ex manager marshal and council people to all the children in that school. They say a school reflects the community it represents. If that is the case you can feel better because Hampton has earned more A grades since the state started that abomination than the rest of the county schools combined. You can look it up. And that is unusual because Hampton Elem. has been a Title One School as long as I can remember. That means the population of the school has a majority living in poverty and eligible for free or reduced lunch. Those schools rarely attain As and you can look that up, too. I saw where the Orlando Sentinel picked up the story and the comments from it explain how big city people feel about the backwaters like Hampton and Archer. To quote: They practice cash register justice Hampton is just a map smudge, two bit redneck towns that are an embarrassment to Florida, and it goes on. Of course bad news sells and those that read it form opinions. If they think that Mickey Mouse parking lot in Orange County is great with its traffic and crime is wonderful they can have it. I imagine they waste or steal more money in a few hours down in Orlando than Hampton could pilfer in its entire history. When such a small place becomes a target for investigation I have to wonder whose ox was gored. It sounds like someone was angered and dropped the hammer with their power. It made good sport for the Gainseville Sun. Dont be fooled by all the pomp and circumstance around Hampton. It is still a nice little town with a great school and quite a bit of poverty. Nobody is getting rich in Hampton from that money pit called the City of Hampton. Steve Acree Brooker Thanks to departments Dear Editor: When Florida adopted Daylight Saving Time, it was not without a fight! Yes, there was a time when we did not change our clocks twice a year. The contention was that DST would save energy. For me, no one has been able to satisfactorily explain how Springing forward and Falling back twice a year could ever conserve energy since we did not save any daylight time its just rearranged. But then Rearranged time doesnt sound nearly as effective as Daylight Saving Time. On March 4, 2014, SB 74: Daylight Saving Time was introduced by Senator Darren Soto and HB 701: Daylight Saving Time had a first reading by Representative Mark Danish requiring that the State of Florida and its political subdivisions observe Daylight Saving Time year round. In March 2008, State Senator Bill Posey introduced a bill to abolish DST and keep Florida on year-round standard time. There is opposition on both sides of the issue! My solution: At a specified date in the future either Spring forward or Fall back one-half hour (30 minutes) and keep it that way year round. Hopefully this would be a compromise all could live with! I have contacted my representative, my state senator and the governor with my suggestion because I would like to see an amiable end to the nonsense of changing clocks twice a year. Martha Capallia Lake Butler Changing clocks twice a year is nonsense

Principal Susan Sailor convened a school-wide assembly Wednesday afternoon to tell the student body that one of their classmates took her own life the previous night. Sailor began the meeting by telling the students, This is not an assembly I ever wanted to have, according to one person who attended the meeting. The principal also instructed students to take out their cell phones, turn the devices on and enter a crisis hotline phone number into their contact lists. Superintendent Charlie Van Zant also addressed the students, encouraging them to talk to school personnel whenever they felt depressed or under stress. We are here to help, he said. Earlier in the day, during a community Lenten Lunch at Trinity Baptist Church, Van Zant told the crowd about the tragedy and invited local youth pastors to the school assembly. In February, another Keystone High School student took his own life. According to one school district source, the two suicide victims were close. Several students said that throughout the week, the mood on campus grew increasingly somber, particularly on Friday when several incidents occurred at the school. One student, who is dual enrolled at Santa Fe College, said she was off-campus Friday morning but returned to the high school that afternoon, and was shocked by the level of tension at the school. Clay County School District spokesperson Gavin Rollins said some students misinterpreted an increased uniformed presence of Clay County Sheriffs deputies at the school on Friday as a sign of trouble. He added that on Friday, school officials called 911 to treat a student that was BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The three leading agencies of a project that would harvest storm water from the First Coast Expressway and pump it to Keystone-area lakes are now planning an alternative that would instead keep the harvested water in northern Clay County for use there. The Clay County Utility Authority, the St. Johns Water Management District and Floridas Department of Transportation provided major funding for the first study of the project. The studys author, Orlando consulting firm GAI concluded that the proposal could bring 12 million gallons a day to Keystone lakes. During a Feb. 8 CCUA meeting, GAI urged the agencies to move forward with a second study that would draft a conceptual design, prepare preliminary cost estimates and draft a cost/benefit analysis for DOT. However, during a March 12 CCUA meeting, the utilitys Executive Director Tom Morris told his board of supervisors that in senior staff meetings between the utility and water management district, participants moved toward an alternative that would harvest the water from the expressway and divert it to CCUA reservoirs instead of piping it south to Keystone Heights. We want this to be one of the options as an alternative water supply, said Morris of the project. Given the choice of treating sea water, water from the St. Johns River or Black Creek, or treating this water, Dave (Chief Engineer Dave Bolam) has said, hands down, he would much rather design a plant to treat this water and actually use it as a drinking water source. Morris said DOT officials also had reservations about pumping the harvested water south to Keystone Heights. They were very, very hesitant Audubon names Brown Conservationist of the Year Starke couple killed in Putnam Hall accidentBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A Starke couple was killed when their motorcycle collided with a car in Putnam Hall on March 12. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Elbert Dave Peace, 64, was driving a 2004 Harley Davidson westbound on SR 100 at 6:05 p.m. Lon Seibert, 57, of Grandin was driving a 1984 Mercedes Benz eastbound. As the two vehicles approached one another, Seibert attempted a left turn onto Putnam Loop Road, driving into the path of the motorcycle, which struck the left side of the Mercedes. Both the driver of the Harley, as well as a passenger, 55-yearold Christine Ann Peace, were thrown from the bike. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger was transported to UF Health with critical injuries and later died. According to the FHP report, Siebert was not injured in the collision, the motorcycle riders were not wearing helmets and charges are pending. Dave Peace was born in Waycross, Ga. and served as a supply officer in the US Navy. He settled in Starke after BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Santa Fe Audubon named Claude Brown as its 2014 Conservationist of the Year during the organizations fifth annual meeting on March 11. Brown is the president of the Putnam Land Conservancy. He is also a chemist with the University of Florida Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences Lake Watch. That program monitors the health of Floridas lakes and enlists volunteers to collect data. The Putnam Land Conservancy is a nonprofit, local land trust whose mission is to protect the natural, historic, scenic, and recreational resources in and around Putnam County through land acquisition and donations of land. Brown was instrumental in the founding of the Putnam Land Conservancy and has worked to further its goal to acquire and conserve land in Putnam County. Since 2010, the conservancy has acquired over 320 acres in eight counties through its targeted subdivisions initiative. Under the plan, owners of parcels, typically in undeveloped or sparsely populated subdivisions, receive a tax deduction by donating land to the nonprofit. The conservancy has also been active in setting up conservation easements, allowing land owners to retain an interest in their properties while also lowering estate and property taxes by restricting the lands future uses. The conservancy also partners with other groups to manage lands. It is working with the Nature Conservancy to restore the Van Meirop Nature Park and has partnered with the city of Hawthorne and Friends of Little Orange Creek to complete a community resource and environmental nature center on the 1,300-acre Little Orange Creek Nature Park east of Hawthorne. Joyce King, president of Santa Fe Audubon, contributed to this story. Santa Fe Audubons Conservationist of the year, Claude Brown, along with board members of the Putnam Land Conservancy.

Clay Comm. hires expert on regulating sex shopsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County Commissioners voted to hire a First Amendment specialist to look at its current ban on sexually oriented businesses, and to recommend whether or not to replace the 27-year-old law. Michael Kahn is a Melbourne-based lawyer who has represented several cities in drafting and defending ordinances that regulate adultoriented businesses. Commissioners first looked at its current outright ban on sexually oriented businesses last November after a potential operator of an adult-themed enterprise telephoned county staff and asked about its ordinance. County attorney Mark Scruby told commissioners that based on case law, the countys current ban on sex shops would likely not survive a court challenge, because it prohibits protected speech under the First Amendment. He added that although the county could not ban adultoriented businesses, it could, through zoning laws, regulate the time, place and manner such businesses operate. Based on the comments of School board candidate puts $100,000 into campaign accountBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A candidate running for the Clay County School board put $100,000 of his own money into his campaign account. Kenny Leigh of Fleming Island is seeking the District 1 seat currently held by Janice Kerekes. He is the senior partner of Kenny Leigh and Associates, a family law practice representing men only. The firm has offices in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, Gainesville, Daytona Beach, Boca Raton and Ft. Walton Beach. Other candidates in the District 1 race include Kerekes, who has raised $14,120 and Amber Shepherd, who has raised $10,704. Kerekes backers include Steve Boccieri, Clay County Republican Executive Committee Treasurer ($500), Orange Park Mayor James Renninger ($100), Clay County School Board Member Carol Studdard ($500), former school superintendent Ben Wortham ($500), Clay Education PAC ($1,000), Clay Education Association President Renna Lee. Paiva ($1,000), school Planning comm. chair complains of zoning creepBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The chair of the Clay County Planning Commission supported a change to an already existing plan for a commercial development at the corner of U.S. 17 and Creighton Road, but not before complaining of methods developers used to get the rezoning approved. The planning board joined Chair Ralph Puckhaber in approving a change in zoning for a parcel just south of the U.S. 17 bridge crossing Doctors Inlet. Creighton Road Development Inc. plans three buildings, parking and a roundabout on the 3.35-acre site. Developers had already obtained approval for the planned commercial development but returned to the planning board on March 11 for approval to add two bank drivethroughs to its proposal. Peter Davis, chair of the Fleming Island Advisory Committee told the planning commission his group did not object to the drive-through lanes. He added that area residents were more concerned about reckless driving of customers exiting a nearby Gate convenience store than they were about the proposed development. Puckhaber, in supporting the Clay Charter Comm. concludes business with no amendmentsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Charter Review Committee voted to conclude its deliberations without sending any charter amendments to voters. The commission meets every four years to consider changes to the countys governing document. Amendments to the charter may also be proposed through citizen ballot initiatives. Voters must approve all changes to the charter. The current charter review commission has met nine times since October and considered 15 amendments including appointing the sheriff and school superintendent, changing term limits for county commissioners, imposing term limits for constitutional officers and placing a cap on county expenditures.

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

He said the presence of a Clay County Fire Rescue ambulance on campus probably unnerved the students who saw it. Several students also said irresponsible postings on Facebook created anxiety at the school. Everybody is posting something on Facebook, said one student, and a lot of what theyre saying is not true. Another student said that particularly vitriol postings on the social media platform have drawn a response from law enforcement and school administrators which further compounded tensions on campus. They cant take any risks, said one student of the aggressive response by school administrators. Weve already had two. Rollins agreed that Facebook postings have been a source of concern for school officials. However he disputed the claim by some students and parents that bullying, some on social media, was the cause of the two students suicides. He said the sheriffs office has found no evidence that bullying played a role in the deaths. Rollins also countered another rumor surrounding the tragedies: the claim that a group a students made a suicide pact. The sheriffs office has said there is no indication of an organized effort, he said. However, another school district official said administrators drafted a watch list of students they felt were particularly at risk, and deputies visited the homes of some of those individuals. The district also brought in administrators from Clay High School, who took over some of the functions of the Keystone Heights staff, allowing Keystone administrators to focus on the crisis at the school. On Sunday evening, dozens of people gathered around the schools flag pole for a prayer vigil. One speaker at the event asked the crowd to support the schools principal. Susan Sailor has taken a lot of unfair criticism this week, the man said. After the remarks, participants broke into applause to show their support for the principal. Rollins also said that much of the criticism aimed at school and district officials on Facebook is unfair. We are doing everything we can, he said. We are looking out for each other and focusing on positive action. Rollin added that as many as 20 grief counselors have been on campus throughout the week. He also said the district used automated telephone calls during the week, especially on Friday, when there was so much turmoil on campus. Van Zant is also focusing on positive action. In an email to the Monitor, he wrote, Its been a tough month for our community. We have been reminded in tragic ways of the very real hurt and pain that is all around us. As we grieve with those who are grieving and support each other we also seek to move forward in a positive way. We have taken specific steps to provide resources and help for those in need. We have a long range plan in place to continue that support. As students go on spring break we will still have resources available for families. Several teachers and students said most people on campus were just trying to make it to Friday, March 21, a teacher planning day. The following week is spring break. Van Zant included several resource phone numbers in his email. They are: Clay Behavioral 352-4735201. Hours 11-4 MondayFriday.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24-hour hotline : 1-800-273-TALK (8255) www. suicidepreventionlifeline.org Several students said that emotions on campus ranged from shock and despair on Wednesday to confusion and fear on Friday. to get involved with what they characterized as a water war, recalled Morris of his discussions with DOT officials, taking water from here and moving it down there for essentially a recreational use. He added that chances appeared remote that the three agencies would participate in the proposed pipeline to the Lake Region, noting its $50 million price tag. If that project gets funded, Morris said of the transmission lines to Keystone Heights, it will probably get funded by some parties other than the people that are now talking: us, DOT and the water management district. Morris said that even under the new plan, Keystone lakes will still benefit. Its not as if they (the lakes) will be completely left alone, he said. If for example, we use this water, we could replace what we are drawing out of the aquifer now, with what we could collect from the horizontal wells. That, in and of itself, will help the lake levels, reduce pressure on the aquifer and help the lakes regain altitude. One supervisor asked Morris, So is the pipeline to Keystone iffy? Yes sir, Morris replied. Its a very expensive-a very, very expensive undertaking. Morris said he has also asked GAI to scale back the second study, originally projected to cost $800,000, to reflect the reduced scope of the project. During GAIs Feb. 8 presentation, the consultants recommended the same participants who funded the first study: CCUA, DOT, the water management district, Clay County, the City of Keystone Heights and the Save Our Lakes Organization, also fund the second study. However, Morris said that with the change in plans, he anticipated that only CCUA, DOT and the water management No Coincidence performs at the Lakeside Music Festival on Saturday, March 15 in Melrose.

The market is sponsoring a Kids Day on March 22. around a dozen local pastors who addressed the commission during its Nov. 11 meeting, commissioners asked Scruby to take another look at the law and to seek the counsel of constitutional law experts. During the March 11 board meeting, Scruby told commissioners he discovered Kahns work after talking to a St. Augustine official. Kahn had helped that municipality draft its ordinance which regulates sexually oriented businesses. Commissioner Ronnie Robinson said drafting an ordinance to replace the countys current outright ban would be a waste of taxpayer money. Ive got a perfectly good ordinance in place that nobody has challenged since 1987, he said. Robinson said that if commissioners followed Scrubys recommendation of using zoning laws to regulate adult businesses it could still face litigation. He cited the case of a Baymeadows Road bar in Jacksonville that is suing the city. After Jacksonvilles planning commission denied a permit that would have allowed bikini-clad women to dance at the bar, the business sued in federal court. A district judge ruled in favor of the bar, claiming that the city ordinance the planning commission relied upon to deny the permit was unconstitutionally overbroad. The city is appealing the decision. Commissioner Diane Hutchings said that she, like Robinson supports the countys current ordinance. She added that the countys ban may be challenged because of urbanization brought by the construction of the First Coast Expressway. I am very concerned that when the outer beltway comes in, we are going to see some changes in our county, she said, and being able to control those changes on the front end is a lot more effective than controlling them on the back end. Hutchings added that every attorney and law firm that Scuby consulted, including the conservative, Christian-based American Center for Law and Justice, told him the countys current ordinance would not survive a court challenge. Commissioner Chereese Stewart said another attorney which specializes in religious freedom and sanctity-of-life cases, Richard Mast of Liberty Counsel, wrote in an opinion that the way to keep sexuallyoriented businesses in the right place is by regulating them. Commissioner Wendell Davis said that his personal beliefs on adult-oriented businesses line up with Robinsons. If I could be a citizen, I would vote no, he said of changing the countys current ban on such establishments. I wish it wasnt on the agenda during our term, but it is and were here. I think we at least have to listen to someone with expertise in addition to Mr. Scruby. The board voted 3-1 to hear Kahn at its April 8 meeting. Robinson voted against the motion and Stewart left the meeting before the vote. In other news from the March 11 Clay County Commission meeting:Director of Planning and Zoning retiresThe board presented Mike Kloehn, outgoing director of planning and zoning, with a plaque thanking him for his service to the county. Kloehn came to Clay County from Osceola County seven years ago. Director of Economic and Development Services Holly Parrish said Kloehn is a true professional. Every decision that he makes is well thought out, she said. He has been a very good consensus builder during somewhat controversial rezoning issues. He has always tried to see the other side, take that side into account and tries to bring people together.Commission dedicates 28th annual Clay County Agricultural FairCommissioner Chereese Stewart read a proclamation recognizing the fairs board, volunteers, and supporters. The fair will run at the county fairgrounds west of Green Cove Springs from April 3 through April 12. Fair Director Pete Sutton reminded Stewart that she was an exhibitor at the first fair. He thanked her for her continued support. Sutton also said that 45 percent of fair patrons come from outside Clay County. Commissioner Wendell Davis said the fair has earned a reputation as a safe, fun and family-oriented event. Regional council completes strategic planNortheast Florida Regional Council Chief Executive Brian Teeple told Clay County commissioners that the council recently completed its strategic regional policy plan. The document outlines the councils goals, which cover community and affordable housing, economic development, emergency preparedness, energy, health, natural resources and transportation. Teeple reminded commissioners that under Florida law, the countys comprehensive plan must align with the councils strategic plan. He also said he did not see any conflicts between the two documents. Teeple said seven counties in the region formed the council in 1977 and that it now serves Baker, Clay, Nassau, Duval, St. Johns, Flagler and Clay counties, in addition to 27 municipalities. He also gave commissioners an update of the councils recent activities, including its work with Congress in reforming the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act, hosting a water supply workshop, staffing the countys mitigation task force, updating the regional evacuation study, running the Northeast Florida leadership academy and coordinating two emergency management exercises which simulated an outbreak of weaponized anthrax in Clay County and a train derailment and chlorine release in St. Augustine.COUPLEContinued from 1A SHOPContinued from 1A See COMMISSION, 4A

Mercy Network leader: 750 families attended outreach eventsPatrick Hayle, CEO of Mercy Support Services, gave commissioners an overview of his organization and said local government, faith-based nonprofits and businesses must work together to make Clay County a caring and compassionate place. Hayle said 750 families attended his organizations two outreach programs last year. It is holding its 2014 spring outreach on March 28 at Pinewood Presbyterian Church in Middleburg. Hayle said Mercy Network was founded in 2004 to help the homeless and to combat scams that were victimizing the homeless. In 2010, Clay County churches, for the first time, worked through Mercy Network to feed temporary laborers housed at extended-stay hotels. Hayle said wages earned by the laborers barely covered their housing costs, leaving nothing for food and other expenses. That year also marked the first time area churches made a continuous financial commitment to the organization and Mercy Networks venture into the housing arena, providing temporary accommodations for the homeless. Hayle said that through 2011, the organization assisted 29 families to selfsufficiency. He said that this year, 49 families are in the organizations case management system. In 2011, Mercy Support Services was formed. Orange Park Medical Center provided office space for the non-profit and Mercy launched its referral call center. In 2012, the Clay County Housing Authority established a $520,000 line of credit for Mercy to acquire additional housing for the homeless. Hayle also said that 50 percent of the residents in the three Orange Park extendedstay hotels are trapped, making just enough to pay for lodging but unable to save money for permanent housing. Commissioner Doug Conkey said recipients of Mercy Support Services dont receive a handout. The folks that are utilizing your services have to progress toward self-sufficiency, so that they are taking the services you are providing and reinventing themselves to be able to support themselves, he said to Hayle.In other matters, commissioners also:Approved a budget amendment allowing the sheriffs office to sell $28,000 worth of ammunition and use the proceeds of the sales to purchase TASERS. The ammunition was for weapons the office no longer uses. Approved an extension of its contract with Florida Blue to manage the countys selfinsured health insurance plan. The county pays Florida Blue $38.11 per employee per month to manage the fund, and as part of the extension, the company agreed to donate $100,000 to the fund for employee wellness programs. Approved a $23,084.34 supplemental agreement to the CR 209 widening project. The additional work will mitigate drainage problems in the Rock Bible Church parking lot and at another location along the widening project. Approved a contract with Pacesetter Personnel Services of Houston to provide temporary labor for the countys recyclables operations. Pacesetter offered to provide the labor at $11.50 an hour. Other bidders included JAG Professional Services of Dayton, Ohio ($11 an hour) and Labor Ready Southeast Inc. of Orange Park ($11.86 per hour). In a memorandum to commissioners, Alan Altman, the countys director of environmental services wrote that even though JAG Professional Services was the low bidder, JAG has not demonstrated that they are authorized to do business in the state of Florida, nor has staff been able to make contact with the only reference provided in their bid package that they are doing business within the state of Florida. Altman also told commissioners that the countys recyclables processing operation now has 11 full-time employees, down from a high of 18. He wrote that managers have not replaced employees who have left the department because managers anticipate the county may soon outsource the function. However, in the meantime, the workload is now too much for the 11 employees to handle, even with overtime. Accepted the resignation of Brenna Van Ness from the Tourist Development Council. In an email to county Tourist Director Jaclyn Slaybaugh, Van Ness wrote that she was moving out of the state. change, also complained about what he called zoning creep, the practice of developers seeking approval for moderate zoning changes, then returning to the planning commission with more drastic upgrades to the original plan. Its get what you can get at the time and then come back a few years later and add stuff you couldnt get the first time, he said of the practice. Puckhaber said the Creighton Road development is an example of the scheme. If it would have originally had drive-in banking in it, the original PCD (planned commercial development) probably would have not gone through, he said.County budget committee approves settlement with auto repair shopBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Commissions Budget, Personnel and Policy Committee approved a $10,000 settlement offer from a lawsuit of an Orange Park auto repair shop. Jays Total Car Care claimed in court documents that from 2007 through 2010, its 357 Blanding Blvd. location flooded due to negligence by the county. The business claimed it incurred $27,948.24 in damages because the county failed to take action to prevent flooding on the property. It added that $15,632.74 of the costs were fees from the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation for the cleanup of waste oil that leaked from a tank due to the flooding. County Finance Director Don Moore recommended commissioners accept the settlement and told committee members the county is admitting no culpability with the acceptance of the settlement. During its March 17 meeting, the committee also: Accepted a $408,395 bid from Beaver Base for supplying the county with lime rock base for roads. Other bidders included Liberty Trucking ($411,325), Pritchett Trucking ($422,680), MidFlorida Hauling ($458,730) and MJ Stavola Farms ($478,825). Gave permission for county animal care and control to apply for a Petsmart Charities grant The grant would fund the Spay Clay program that assists low-income pet owners with sterilizing their pets. In 2013 the county received a similar grant for $100,000 and used the money to sterilize 1,953 animals. Alan Altman, director of environmental services, wrote in a memorandum to commissioners that animal intakes at the countys shelters decreased to 3,650 in 2013, down from 5,679 in 2011. While this is due to a combination of programs, he wrote, the Spay Clay program has certainly contributed to this decline. Approved a $26,600 renewal with ESRI Inc. for geographic information systems mapping software. Troy Nagle, director of management information systems, said the annual maintenance fee of $26,600 for 2014-2015 is $3,000 less than the previous year because it does not include some licenses the county determined it was not using and therefore did not renew. Approved three studies for the Transportation Planning Organizations unified planning work program. The North Florida TPO plans transportation projects for Duval, Nassau, Clay and St. Johns counties. Every six months it updates its unified planning work program and asks its member counties to recommend studies that the work program should undertake. The budget, personnel and policy committee endorsed three studies recommended by county staff that includes a corridor traffic study for CR 220 between US 17 and the East/West Parkway in Fleming Island, a corridor traffic study for Wells Road between US 17 and SR. 21 in Orange Park and a corridor traffic study for College Drive between CR 220 and SR 21 in Lakeside. Approved a plan to open the pool at Camp Chowenwaw for the summer of 2014. Commissioners budgeted funds to fill in the pool in the US 17 campground, but County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos told committee members that the facility has two years left before major repairs are necessary and that the pool is one of the camps major assets. She recommended using funds originally earmarked to fill in the pool this year to instead operate it during the 2014 summer. She added that $60,000 would likely be required to upgrade the board attorney Bruce Bickner ($500) and the Lake Education Association ($100). Shepherds supporters include Clay County Tax Collector Jimmy Weeks ($50), W.W. Gay Mechanical Contractor ($1,000), various subsidiaries of Palatkas Beck Auto Group ($2,000), Corner Stone Homes ($500), Broadus-Raines Funeral Home ($200), veterinarian David H. Watkins ($500) and the Clay County Port Inc. ($400).COMMISSIONContinued from 3A FUNDSContinued from 1A PLANNINGContinued from 1A See POOL, 6A

Stressful experiences have big, immediate effects on childrens healthScience has shown that children who experience stressful events are more likely to face poor health outcomes as adults, but new research shows the effects may show up much sooner in fact, almost immediately. Researchers at the University of Florida discovered that when children experience three or more stressful events, they are six times more likely to suffer from a mental, physical or learning disorder than children who didnt face these traumatic experiences, said Melissa Bright, a research coordinator for the UF Institute of Child Health Policy, or ICHP. Bright will present her findings at the American Psychosomatic Societys annual meeting on March 12 in San Francisco. The kids who have the highest number of adverse experiences have the highest likelihood of having multiple conditions, Bright said. It is not one poor health outcome; it is a whole slew of poor outcomes across the board. UF researchers analyzed data collected as part of the National Survey for Child Health, which included nearly 96,000 children from across the United States. The survey contains data on the number of adverse experiences the children faced, including parental divorce, economic hardship, exposure to domestic and neighborhood violence, poor caregiver mental health, exposure to drug abuse and having a parent in jail. The parents also reported on any conditions their children had. According to the study, between 11 and 24 percent of parents reported that their children had been diagnosed with at least one disorder. About 4 percent of parents reported that their children had at least one disorder from all three categories mental, learning and physical. Children who had faced adverse experiences were more likely to have a disorder in every category than children who had not. The culprit could be chronic toxic stress, which researchers believe prompts changes to the bodys developing neuroendocrine and immune systems, Bright said. These changes can lead to poor regulation of the stress response and a decreased ability to fight disease. In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement endorsing increased efforts to combat the effects of toxic stress on healthy brain growth in children. These adverse experiences are affecting multiple domains of health simultaneously, she said. We need a holistic approach to tackle this issue. Although the study showed that adverse experiences are linked to an increased risk for various health conditions, the researchers dont yet know if those experiences cause the conditions to occur, Bright said. It is also possible that having a child with multiple health conditions puts serious financial and emotional strains on families, making them more susceptible to adverse experiences such as caregiver mental illness and divorce, she said. We are currently collecting data for a new study in which we plan to examine this possibility. In the next phase of her research, Bright also hopes to look more closely at the neuroendocrine and immune system changes and their link to poor health outcomes in childhood. If we can identify these changes early on, then we can develop interventions to hopefully prevent some of these poor outcomes, she said. 6A Lake Region Monitor Thursday, March 20, 2014 LRM Legals 3/20/14 NOTICE OF PUBLIC AUCTION Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Florida Self Storage Facility Act Statutes (Section 83.801,83.809), Lake Area Storage, LLC, will sell the following items to the highest and best bidder on Thursday, April 3,2014 at 9;00 A.M.

It starts with all the riders (that want to participate) circling the arena once on horseback to an upbeat western song. The two riders with the Clubs Flag and the American Flag (usually the King and Queen of the club) remain in the arena after. The Clubs Flag moves to the center of the ring while the music changes to the National Anthem performed by LeAnn Rimes. After the National Anthem has finished, a prayer is said to ask for God to watch over all the horses and riders and to pray for healing and safety for those that have been injured or are going through hard times. It really is a site to behold, especially in todays times. Once the opening ceremonies are completed, the real fun begins and the barrel racing horses are ready to run! Recently, however, there have been numerous occasions where people have been discriminated against by one person in the club, casting a dark cloud over everything the club does. A board member at the riding club has taken it upon himself to hand judgment down on individuals that dont suit his beliefs or his variation of who should be allowed to attend the clubs events. I, being a homosexual man in a long term relationship, found myself and my partner to be the targets of such an instance on March 1st, 2014. My name is Keith Warren, and many people in the community know me. I was raised in Bradford County and attended Bradford County schools. I have also been attending events at the Bradford Riding Club for over 25 years now. I always try to help people when they need it and try to keep a smile on my face with something good to say to everyone I come across. For me, this was a completely appalling and demeaning event. My partners name is Michael Young. He is originally from Iowa and has taken an interest in horses and learning as much as he can about them and the sport of barrel racing. He is an outstanding man that is always there for our friends and his family. He gives everyone a fair chance and even if they mess up, he still offers another shot at a friendship. All in all, we arent hateful or spiteful people. We just wanted to take part in a club that has meant a lot to me in my life and try to make a difference in the lives of those around us. The night started off well. My partner and I had been voted in at the January members meeting and had volunteered to work the kitchen as part of our membership. So, we were working the kitchen and one of the board members (the Arena Director) had approached the counter and requested a beverage. That was the job we were asked to do, so we greeted him and proceeded to have his beverage made. In the meantime, he proceeded to ask us if we were gay, which would have been fine, but he used some very derogatory terms and then told us that we were not Disappointed with Bradford Riding Club in the midst of discriminationto touch anything that was to be given to him as he didnt want a gay person touching his food or beverages. I was speechless. All I could do was remain silent and smile. This is 2014 and although I know people are all raised differently and have their own beliefs, I thought that respecting another person was considered the right thing a long time ago! After he received his beverage, I presented the issue with the President of the club who did all she could to correct the situation. She initially came back to me and informed me that without witnesses, the board could not do anything. I understood this and had started to tuck the issue away in my mind. Shortly afterward, however, the board members that were present that night had approached him and he admitted to what was said. As the board began to discuss the issue with him, he offered to leave and give up his key. This offer was, to my shock and dismay, refused by the board. The President of the club came back to the kitchen to inform my partner and me of what the final verdict in the situation had been, and both of us were livid. Here we were, standing in the kitchen selling food and beverages for the Bradford County Riding Club in order to keep our membership with the club in good standing, and we are being discriminated against by one of the clubs own board members! Not only were we being discriminated against, but the rest of the board had decided that no punishment was necessary in a situation like this! Since that night, my partner and I have not been contacted by the board members that were at the Riding Club that night and we have not been issued an apology from the board member that had so much to say about our personal life. Our belief on this matter is that the club has no interest in the well-being and overall safety and security of its members. If there was any concern within the board, it was brushed under the rug in the hopes of the issue going away. Unfortunately for them, we are not willing to go away. We want this issue placed in the public eye. If you have ever been affected by discrimination, you know how serious this is and how damaging an event like this can be. We arent asking for this man to be placed in jail or the club to be shut down. We just want the right thing to be done and nobody else to ever feel as if they are not welcome. Our country has come too far for society to slip back into the ways of segregation (for any race, religion, sexuality, or gender). My partner and I just want it known that we were not treated fairly as a fellow human being should be. The Bradford Riding Clubs motto is Just for the Fun of It and I am still asking myself, What is the fun in discrimination? We were very respectful to all members at the club and worked our shifts. We just dont know what more we could have done. Michael and I would like to say a special Thank You, to all the people that have supported us and kept our spirits high during this time. It is in your darkest hours that you find out who is standing in your corner. From our hearts to yours, thank you for all the kind words and outpouring of support. We really do appreciate it! Submitted by: Keith Warren Keystone Heights Dear Editor: Now I know how stories take on a life of their own.   You start out with a short article about corruption in a small town and a comment that blows up into a cause.   That comment, from an elected official, said Hampton will cease to exist if they do not behave.   Of course Hampton will continue to exist and the state or county taking their city charter would be rare but now the stage is set.   The state and then national media have something to run with.   Imagine a town so criminal and bad that big brother has to step in and end it all.   Bad news sells and this is bad news with a whole town indicted for sleaziness.     Next month it will another person or place that excites us and makes us go how could it be so bad, we would never allow that? Having worked in this small town for almost the last thirty years I can tell you most of this story is just that, a story.   This is really about a small town steeped in poverty just hangin on like most little towns in America the last few years.   Early on Hampton boomed awhile with banks and hotels, a train stopping and strong rural economy.   Then one day a major road bypassed it and you have what happened to thousands of little towns like it.    Left behind when the cars went elsewhere. Hampton also drew attention because it is between two of the most famous speed traps in America.   I put quotes around it because speed traps are places that used to lock you up if you didnt have the cash.   Neither is a speed trap.   The highway going through them is basically an interstate highway and the locals are trying to slow them down.   There are enough signs to warn you and having driven through them most of my adult life I can say all you do is slow down for the speed limit.   Hampton tried doing the ticket thing on 301 and that angered some people.   The intersection they covered was dangerous.   A new stoplight was put in and large trucks routinely ran it because they could not slow down from 65+ in time to stop.   I go through that intersection 6-10 times a week and NEVER pull out on the green until I see them stopping.   What I believed happened in Hampton is someone with power received a ticket and not enough How Hampton became the next big (bad) thingrespect from the local marshal of Hampton and the hammer came down.   All of a sudden many Hamptonites were complaining about the corruption and the guys in the white hats swooped in to save them.   Yes, and I have a bridge to sell you in the Santa Fe Swamp. The big thing is where did the money go?   M y comment is what money.   Hampton had revenue from those tickets.   Most of that went to the state or county.   The rest paid those extra officers and gas.   T he other is the money from the water system.   Not much there.   The fingers point to a city manager and son. Everyone knows that 95% or more of that went for gas, and a deal it was as Hampton had much cheaper gas than Alachua County.   I know these people in Hampton. I have taught many of them and now their children.   No elected official is getting rich or even comfortable stealing from the bulging coffers of The City of Hampton.   Most of those city people from the manager to the council people did those jobs because most people did not want to mess with it.   They always say follow the money trail.   You first have to have money to find a trail.   I think this trail leads a different way.   Someone was treated unfairly and Hampton became the target. Yes, records were poorly kept and Hampton probably should not have followed   the leads of Waldo in police work but this great sport of holding Hampton up as some sort of southern cess pool of crime is just the media running with a comment after finding an   easy target.   The people I know in Hampton are good folks from the ex manager marshal and council people   to all the children in that school.   They say a school reflects the community   it represents.   If that is the case you can feel better because Hampton has earned more A grades since the state started that abomination than the rest of the county schools combined.   You can look it up.   And that is unusual because Hampton Elem. has been a Title One School as long as I can remember.   That means the population of the school has a majority living in poverty and eligible for free or reduced lunch.   Those schools rarely attain As and you can look that up, too. I saw where the Orlando Sentinel picked up the story and the comments from it explain how big city people feel about the backwaters like Hampton and Archer.   To quote: They practice cash register justice   Hampton is just a map smudge, two bit redneck towns that are an embarrassment to Florida,   and it goes on.   Of course bad news sells and those that read it form opinions.   If they think that Mickey Mouse parking lot in Orange County is great with its traffic and crime is wonderful they can have it. I imagine they waste or steal more money in a few hours down in Orlando than Hampton could pilfer in its entire history.   When such a small place becomes a target for investigation I have to wonder whose ox was gored. It sounds like someone was angered and dropped the hammer with their power. It made good sport for the Gainseville Sun.   Dont be fooled by all the pomp and circumstance around Hampton. It is still a nice little town with a great school and quite a bit of poverty. Nobody is getting rich in Hampton from that money pit called the City of Hampton. Steve Acree Brooker Thanks to departmentsDear Editor: When Florida adopted Daylight Saving Time, it was not without a fight!   Yes, there was a time when we did not change our clocks twice a year.   The contention was that DST would save energy.   For me, no one has been able to satisfactorily explain how Springing forward and Falling back twice a year could ever conserve energy since we did not save any daylight time its just rearranged.   But then Rearranged time doesnt sound nearly as effective as Daylight Saving Time. On March 4, 2014, SB 74: Daylight Saving Time was introduced by Senator Darren Soto and HB 701: Daylight Saving Time had a first reading by Representative Mark Danish requiring that the State of Florida and its political subdivisions observe Daylight Saving Time year round.   In March 2008, State Senator Bill Posey introduced a bill to abolish DST and keep Florida on year-round standard time.   There is opposition on both sides of the issue! My solution: At a specified date in the future either Spring forward or Fall back one-half hour (30 minutes) and keep it that way year round.   Hopefully this would be a compromise all could live with!   I have contacted my representative, my state senator and the governor with my suggestion because I would like to see an amiable end to the nonsense of changing clocks twice a year.

After graduating from Runge High School in 1942 he went on to the University of Texas, playing the trumpet in the marching band, after which he joined the Navy and received his wings to become a Naval Aviator in 1945. He was stationed in many places, most notably in Greenland, Iceland, Guam and Malta flying the Douglas R5D and the P2V Neptune for squadrons VP-3 and V6. Jim flew sorties as part of the great aviation history made during the Berlin Airlift, where he was counted among the Raisin Bombers, an endearment for American pilots delivering food, fuel and supplies to our German allies during World War II. His squadron the V6, along with the V8 flew thousands of sorties in what they fondly called Ten Tons to Templehof, with planes averaging 13 hours flight time daily and consistently operating over 125% efficiency. He was particularly proud of the V6 and V8 squadrons instrument flying ability, competing with other branches of the military to be superior at landing in Germans tough, wintery fog conditions. He met and married Bettye Ruth Luck in 1955 at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville. After serving in the Navy for 24 years, Lieutenant Commander Zowarka retired at the Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia in 1966 and moved to Keystone Heights. He worked at the University of Florida in Gainesville for 37 years and was an avid Florida Gator football fan, cheering on the Gators and enjoying season tickets for over 48 years. Jim was involved in his community serving in the Keystone Heights Volunteer Fire Department from 1969 to 1975 and was Fire Chief from 1975 to 1983, working to bring the first ambulances and trained EMT volunteers to the area. He was a lifetime member of the Lions Club of America, a member of Keystone Golf and Country Club for over 40 years, a member of the vestry at St. Annes Episcopal Church in Keystone Heights and later transitioned with the congregation to Trinity Episcopal Church in 406 Gone but not forgotten March 18, 1993 A Firemans Prayer When I am called to duty, God wherever flames may rage Give me the strength to save some life whatever be its age Help me embrace a little child before it is too late Or save an older person from the horror of that fate Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout And quickly and efficiently to put the fire out I want to fill my calling an to give the best in me To guard my every neighbor and protect their property And if according to your will I have to lose my life Please bless with your protecting hand My children and my wife In Memory In MemoryLori Lavine SmithLori Lavine Smith Feb. 9, 1971 Mar. 18, 2012 It has been two years since God called you home. You are out of the problems of this life. No more pain or health problems. If you had lived, you would be a Grandma. You have two hard working sons. We cherish the time we had with you. We have a lot of good memories. You always had a helping hand for us. You are in good hands now. Love your mom, Lois Hodges Hau Melrose. He enjoyed electric trains, aviation history, playing golf, boating and being outdoors. Jim will be missed by his loving wife of 58 years, Bettye Ruth Luck; his children, Chris (Jennifer), Patricia Ganey (Tim), Suzanne Van Hatten, Michael (Tricia); ten grandchildren, Alpha, Nova, Milisa, Margaret, Benjamin, Camille, Alexandra, Michael, Sara, Jackson; and four great-grandchildren, Jonah, Shannon, Chloe, and Zackery.
