FLEMING ISLAND- School board mem-
bers spent a'recent workshop reviewing
the prospect of nearly 16,000 new residen-
tial units scheduled for construction in the
county during the next five to ten years.
A review of the subdivision proposals
listed b dihe district reveals iht nltumber of
units actually) exceeds 17,000. Those units
are part of subdivisions and do not include
housing units that may be built on individ-
ual existing lots.
Speaking to board members Thurs-
dayJan. 5, Assistant Superintendent Mike


Elliot told board members said, "As much
as two-thirds of those units, ha \ e al reads
recei% ed their zoning approvals."
NMaking dhe news e\ c n less pa latable \ as
the pirospec that mian\ I nits aie no sub-
ject to the requirements placed on Devel-
opments of Regional Impact, or DRI(s),
Elliot said.
Those requirements, under state law,
call for DRIs to provide land for school
sites as part of their land use approvals
from the state.
Without those approvals, the district is
iedtuced to negotiating with developers to
obtain specific sites before property is used
for other purposes.


Besides locating school sites to house
students generated by the new housing
units, the district is taking a look at how the
construction of schools on those sites will
be funded
With $100 million in debt issued for ex-
isting schools and those under construc-
tion, the district started a process last year
to consider multiple sources of revenue for
new schools.
Last spring the district approached
County Commissioners to increase the im-
pact fee from $2,000 to $7,034 ($2,000 less
than the amount estimated to be needed).

ORANGE PARK- Eleven University of
Illinois students are spending their

mentally disabled.
"I was driven to this trip because it
sounded'like an opportunity to help
people," said senior Anne Masters. "It

GREEN COVE SPRINGS "Be-

Lassiter told the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners (BCC) Tues-
dayJan. 10, "Commissioner (Pat)
McGovern has asked for a point
of privilege."
"I've been on the Commission
for 13 years and on the Planning a
Commission for two or three years before
that," McGovern said. "That's 16 years and


Ac


a long time for a person with
no political aspirations."
McGovern said he had
promised himself to make a
decision on a very important
subject by January of 2006.
"Since I am of retirement
age," he said, "I am going to
do just that retire." He will
not seek reelection to the Dis-
trict 2 seat.
Govern As of this date, only Dou-
glas P. Conkey has declared his intention
torun for the office.

McGovern said that he hoped there
would be several candidates for the dis-
trict to make the race interesting.
"I encourage anyone with thick skin, a
strong stomach and a stout heart to seek
the office," he said.
Later, when asked what he thought his
most significant contribution had been,
McGovern replied, "I'm hoping it's yet to
come." He said that the long-awaited
Outer Beltway will be the "decision of
the decade."

OH, LORD, WHAT NEXT? A pair of
pigeons has taken up residence at Thrash-
er-Horne Center and staff is worried sick
about them. Because they are banded, the
staff thinks that they may belong to some-
one. The way they bill and coo over each
other, it seems they may be a "couple." That
opinion is enhanced by the eggs that the
female produced. Unfortunately, the pi-
geons built their love nest above the box of-
fice window unprotected from the
elements. During recent high winds, all the
eggs were blown from the nest and
smashed on the pavement. The birds have


now moved to a higher location but are still

Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK An Orange Park po-
lice officer arrested on a charge of driv-
ing under the influence inJacksonville
Monday,Jan. 9, has resigned from the
force.
The officer, David Eugene Coles,
"walked in and turned in his resignation
and we accepted it," Police Chief James
Boivin said Wednesday,Jan 11.
TheJacksonville Sheriffs Office said
officers found Coles, 39, slumped behind
the wheel of his vehicle, which was
parked with its engine runningand head-
lights on in parking lot in the 6500 block
of Ramona Boulevard about 11 p.m.
S, Officers banged on the driver's win-
dow several times but the driver, whose
head was against the window, didn't wake
up, according to aJSO arrest report.
The officers then hit the window
hard enough that the man's head
bounced off the glass and awakened him.


They asked him to open the door, but
the man put down the window instead
and a difficult time opening the door.
The report says the man also seemed
confused when officers finally reached
inside and got the door unlocked.
Once outside the 2006 Kia sport utili-
ty vehicle, the man swayed, had bloodshot
eyes and appeared very disoriented and
failed a field sobriety test, the report says.
The chief described Coles as "a good
police officer" and said he had no previ-
ous negative marks on his performance
evaluations.
Coles was involved in a shooting inci-.
dent inJanuary 2005 in which he shot an
armed suspect at Community Behav-
ioral Services on Kingsley Avenue. The
shooting was later ruled justified by the
Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment and Coles returned to duty.
In another incident Boivin rescued a
suspect who had jumped into the St.
Johns River.

who's running Clay Co.


Take a look at Fritz Behring's picture
accompanying this column.
Glance at those eyes andjaw line for a
moment...
Now do you get a sense that this guy is
pretty intense and won't take any guff?
Yeah, metoo!Just based on appearances,
maybe the new county motto should be:
"Don'tjack with Fritz."
If I were one of the more than one
dozen department heads in Clay County
government I would be working my tail
off to get my house in order.Judgment
Day Fritz-style-is clearly coming.
'I had an opportunity last week to hear
Behring, who began his new duties Dec. 5, in
person and I came away thinking my early
assessment of him was right on the mark.
A physically imposing man standing
more than six-feet tall and the plus side of
200 pounds, Behring has a clear aura of con-
trolled intensity about him;it's of aguy who
is intelligent but clearly focused on his mis-
sion and determined to see it
completed.
There doesn't seem to be
an ounce of 90-day probation
period timidity in him, either.
Asked questionsabouta coun-
ty government he had been
running for a mere 30 days,
Behring didn'tflinchwhenhe
gave answers even entrenched
county managers might feel Fritz Behril
uncomfortable giving.
That's because the frank answers were
about his employers the Clay County
Commissioners, who picked him from a
field more than two-dozen applicants. He
made it clear the commissioners had made
mistakes in the past, the commissioners
needed to change, and the commissioners
should begin doing things the right way.

Dear Editor:
As we begin a new year, I would like to
encourage people in the area to consider
joining a wonderful program called
Leadership Clay, which is sponsored by
the Clay County Chamber of Commerce.
Leadership Clay is an innovative pro-
gram designed to enhance leadership
potential of Clay County citizens and
business leaders through a challenging
curriculum of educational and partici-
patory exercises. The program's goal is to
encourage potential and present com-
munity leaders to become more familiar
with current issues and to develop solu-
tions for future challenges.
As I filled out the application for
Leadership Clay 2005, Ilisted the issues I
would like to work on after completing
the course: Transportation; Economic


CEO" with commissioners being his em-
ployers who oversee his operation froin
a distance. Like Mars.
Just in terms of background, Behring
offers some impressive credentials. He
has worked in Florida for more than nine
years, first in the Fort Meade, a town of
5,455, and then moved to Deltona where
he was city manager for nearly six years.
Behring said he went to college in South
Dakota to be an attorney, but started work
the day after graduation as a city manager
and later became the youngest city
manager in Nebraska history when
he began working there.
And the soft-spoiken Behring's
knowledge of how government
should m r k isn't just "on the job."
He's been an adjunct instructor at
two colleges where he taught gov-
ernment management courses.
Thisguy, at least on paper, seems
ng to know his stuff.
But Behring has to know he faces
an uphill battle. When he told commis-
sion members that he wants commission-
ers and county residents to contact him
with their problems or comments, one
charter commission member asked how
he oIl(l add press all those calls.
His ans;%i:r: I can handle it.
If hi sr impressions are \,woIrh any-
ihing. Behring definitely\ cn. A\nd if yOu
git a pi IoblIn with that. then ion go tell
him. I'm not.


Development and Local Government
with more resident participation. Those
issues are still high on my list. One year
ago I had simplistic ideals of how I could
make a difference in these areas. After
attending the classes I now know there is
nothing simplistic about making change
happen. But I still strongly believe
changes can and will be made.
Being in Leadership Clay was a great
experience. I learned so much about the
county, state and other agencies that
make up our community. The curricu-
lum was well planned and gave me a won-
derful insight into how our part of the
world works. The other people in Lead-
ership Clay 2005 are no longer my class-
mates, they are my friends.

LEADERSHIP from page A-4
The event that made the biggest im-
pact on me is the Class Project. We
helped Quigley House prepare retail
space for their new Thrift Store. The
first couple weeks were daunting be-
cause I didn't know what to do or what I
could do. After Sharon Youngerman
(Quigley House Executive Director and
Leadership Clay 2004 graduate) called
for help, I charged in with all the en-
thusiasm and energy I had. I learned
how to tear down drywall and many
other things. Personally I put in many
hours at the shop. Even my boys helped!


The transformation from four shops to
onelarge retail space was incredible. The
grand opening gave me goose bumps.
Working with Sharon Youngerman, her
staff and their Board of Directors was in-
spiring and something I will remember
and treasure the rest of my life.
To anyone considering being in
Leadership Clay, I strongly urge you
find the time, the money and support
from your family, friends and business.
It will change your life! Contact Greg

OR ANGE PARK Creating high-wage
jobs, expanding the tax base, diversifying
the economy, enhancing our quality of life
and controlling our destiny these are the
reasons the Clay County Chamber of Com-
merce engages in economic development
The road to success begins with coopera-
tive efforts between public andprivate part-
ners as a positive growth cycle is setin motion.
A strong job-creation program allows
individuals to become self-sufficient. With
the ability to provide for themselves
through high-quality jobs, people can then
give back as productive citizens in their
communities.
Growth in Florida is inevitable. The


quality of that growth is what economic
development is about. Better jobs,
planned development instead of urban
sprawl, and an enhanced tax base are cen-
tral to this process. Local and state gov-
ernments also benefit fromjob growth
and capital investment in the region. An
increase in compensation means an up-
surge in taxes paid by the individual or the
new or expanding company. These taxes
allow governments to provide services and
create infrastructure improvements in
each city or county.
The ongoing effort to diversify the local
economy is critical to the county's future.
Economic development is needed to make
life better by bringing more wealth, an ex-
panded tax base and fiscal sustainability.

'It's all about compassion'


By Bob Henderson, staff
bhenderson@jcpgroup.comn

ORANGE PARK Three ladies at Or-
ange Park Medical Center (OPMC) are
there to assist and comfort patients,
friends and family. That's what they do.
Director Wanda Sharp, Manager Glenda
Nicolini and Coordinator Faye Archibald
are the patients' representatives and ad-
vocatesy they serve as liaison between the
patient and the hospital.
Patient Relations will work with physi-
cians, the hospital staff and all branches
of the healthcare team involved in a pa-
tient's care. They guide patients and their
loved ones through the maze of today's
healthcare system, serving an important
complementary role.
Sometimes the comfort extended is as
simple as sitting with the terrified parent
of a sick or injured child or consoling a
worried friend. Sometimes the issue is
more complex, like defusing a tense situ-
ation caused by a misunderstanding be-
tween patient and staff or physician, or
calming the sometimes-volatile emotions
of family members and friends in the
midst of a very stressful time. Whatever
is needed, these women handle their jobs
with knowledge, compassion, under-
standing, and in.a giving and caring man-
ner. Indeed, all three of them say that
compassion is key to easing a patient's or
family's concerns. Although Patient Re-
lations is relatively new to OPMC, it has
been there barely one year, it is already a
firmly established, fully functional and
critical department within the hospital
and signals OPMC's emphasis on patient
rights and patient care.
By committing to quality patient and
family service, OPMC management has
shown a-lasting commitment to total med-
ical care that the patient, and their fami-
lies, should receive quality physical,.
mental, and emotional care as part of a
strong medical program. Clay County and
the outlying communities will be the ben-
eficiary of OPMC's strong and visionary

management decision As an indication of
just how important this service is to OPMC,
while interviewing the three personnel a
knock at the door interrupted discussion
when another staff member entered the
room and asked for assistance with a devel-
oping situation. Thejob of assisting pa-
tients and families is never ending.
Patient services has tapped into the
hospital's auxiliary and, with their assis-
tance, has introduced a coffee cart for
those family and friends waiting for loved
ones in the emergency room and has re-
cently established a DVD library, along
with four DVD/CD machines. The li-
brary is available to any staff member re-
questing movies for the patients. "What
we have," Sharp says, "is a real time oppor-
tunity to meet even more patients needs."
The three staff members of the newly
developed Patient Relations department
come from similar, yet very different
backgrounds. Wanda Sharp came to
Floridajust a year ago from SouthJersey
Healthcare System in NewJersey. She has
17 years experience in the Patient Rela-
tions field following a 13-year stint as a
high school English teacher. She has

been with OPMC for one year. Some of
her most emotional moments as an advo-
cate were dealing with families that lost a
child. She said, "I had to walk a thin line
between the legalities of the moment and
compassion for bereft patients".
Glenda Nicolini came to OPMC from
the University of North Carolina Hospi-
tals at Chapel Hill, where she served as the
assistant director of Patient Relations for
seven years and as a patient advocate for
three years. She has been with OPMC for
five months. Nicolini recalls an occasion
at UNC where a man was horribly
burned in an explosion, leaving him
blind. Using this patient as the main


character, Nicolini coordinated the mak-
ing of a customer service video. Nicolini
said, "It opened the eyes of a lot of health-
care professionals and reminded them of
the importance of being sensitive and
compassionate". This initiative made the
New York Times.
Faye Archibald is also from NewJer-
sey where she was employed at Beth Is-
rael Medical Center, Newark. After
relocating to Florida, Archibald worked
in the Patient Relations Department for
17 years and served as the interim direc-
tor before leaving ShandsJacksonville.
She joined OPMC three months ago.
Archibald sees Patient Relations as a "re-
volving door" that is always open to pa-
tients, families, and friends. "Sometimes,
something as simple as making sure they
have access to a telephone, is all that is
necessary". Archibald recalls a time
when seeing-eye dogs were not welcome
in medical facilities. At Shands,
Archibald was instrumental in the devel-
opment of policies that would ensure
that seeing-eye dogs had hospital access.
The knowledge, vast wealth of experi-
ence and the caring compassionate de-
meanor displayed by these women can be
seen through all of their stories. As the
conversation wound down, Sharp re-
called that OPMC received a number of
patients from the Katrina disaster. She
recalled one patient telling the story of
how she had watched a family of five who
had joined hands, and drowned together.
In this case, Patient Relations was there
just to listen.

Charter Commission gets details about county operation


By Greg Walsh, Managing Editor
gucalsh@jcpgroup.com

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Fritz Behring is
quickly making an impact on Clay County
government, including a committee look-
ing into possible changes to the county's
Home Rule Charter.
Committee members meeting Thurs-
dayJan. 5, heard Behring say it's not neces-
sary to change the charter when it comes to
the county manager's duties.
Instead, he said, Clay County commis-
sioners and others simply need to embrace
the charter as voters approved it in 1999.
"The county manager form of gov-
ernment was never really embraced
here," said Behring, who started in the
post Dec. 5, "because the way they did
business never changed even after the
charter was approved."
Based on what Behring told the group,
the 15-member charter review committee
voted 12-0 (three members were absent) to
adopt CRC member Rob Bradley's motion
not to alter the county manager's duties.
Bradley said Behring's answers con-
vinced him the panel could leave-that
area alone..
'This is an opportunity to make this char-
ter what it was intended to be," Bradley said.
The charter commission will make rec-
ommendations to Clay County commis-
sioners, who would decide whether to put
any charter revisions before the voters.

Members of the Clay County Charter Review Commission listen Thursday, Jan. 5, in Key-
stone Heights to new County Manager Fritz Behring discuss the duties of his office.


Commission Chairman Travis Cummings
said the group's final report would be sub-
mitted to commissioners by June.
Continuing to gather information on
how county government works, the com-
mittee invited County Finance Director
Ron Moore to explain the county's Audit
Committee and how it works.
Moore explained the Audit Committee
consists of "three fee officers and two
budget officers" that basically select an
outside auditor to review county account-
ing procedures.
The Audit Committee, however, does
not direct or review the county auditor, a

Y begins annual outreach campaign


Special to Clay Today

ORANGE PARK Clay County's YMCAs
are about to kick off their annual outreach
campaign to raise funds and awareness for
YMCA scholarship programs.
Funds raised by the effort, called Share
the Y, stay in Clay County to help children
and families take advantage of the YMCA
programs, regardless of their ability to pay.
In 2005, Clay County YMCAs provided
more than $650,000 in financial assistance
including: membership services, before
and after-school care for about 1,500 chil-
dren called Pryme Time; summer and hol-
iday camp; and sports and other programs.
"We don't deny membership to any-
one," said Teri Finelli, administrative assis-
tant with Y of Florida's First Coast "If you
are a non-members and you want your
child to play in asportorjoin program we
can provide a scholarship for that"
The Barco-Newton Family YMCA has


added an outreach program, al-
lowing it to serve the Green Cove
Springs area.
The first half-day summer
camp in Green Cove Springs was
successful, "Y" officials said, and
provided more than 60 children
with the chance to swim, play
sports and games, make arts and
crafts and receive a healthy lunch
and snack.
This year's goal is $200,000,
with the campaign headed by Or-
ange Park resident Tony Knott,
Finelli said.
Knott, a longtime Y supporter,
kicked off the chairman's round-
table in November, Finelli said.
The full campaign starts Feb. 2
and will target both corporate
and individual donors, she said.
Providing programs to Clay
fainilies some of whom cannot

"We encourage the community to help with this program and
partner with the YMCA," said Krieger.


pay all or part of the cost has
been well received by parents,
and many expressed the need
for the program to continue,
officials said.
'After careful review, look-
ing at the extreme circum-
stances and documentation
provided, I was approved for fi-
nancial assistance," one mother
said. "I was filled with gratitude.
The YMCAs scholarship pro-
gram was the light at the end of
the tunnel, when all I could see
before was the train."

For information on how to
donate, contact either the Barco-
NewtonYMCA at Fleming Is-
land at (904) 278-9622 or
Dye-Clay Family YMCA, 3322
Moody Ave., at (904) 272-4304.
All donations are tax deductible.


Taxpayers pose questions, IRS gives answers


Igot married in une of this year and
changed my name. Is there anythinglneed
to do before Ifile my tax return next year?
There are a few things you should do
now to avoid problems when filing your
2005 tax return. You must provide correct
names and identification numbers to claim
personal exemptions or the Earned Income
Tax Credit If you changed your nameupon
marriage (or divorce), contact the Social Se-
curity Administration to update their in-
formation and your Social Security card so
your SSN matches your new name.
If you moved after getting married (or
divorced), notify the U.S. Postal Service.
The Postal Service provides updated ad-
dress information to the IRS; however, you
can notify the IRS directly by sending
SForm 8822,Changeof Address. This form
is available on the IRS Web site atirs.gov or
by calling 1-800-829-3676.
When it comes time to file your 2005
tax return, newly married taxpayers may
find that they now have enough deduc-
tions to itemize on their tax return.
Amounts paid for medical care, mortgage
interest, charitable contributions, casualty
losses and certain miscellaneous costs can
reduce your taxable income and lower
your tax bill.
Your marital status on Dec 31 determines


whether you are considered married for
that year. Married persons may file their
federal tax return eitherjointly or separate-
ly. Choosing the right filing.status may save
you money.

I'm a teacherand this yearlspentsome of
my own moneyforclassroomsupplie. CanI
claim this on my2005federal tax return?
If you area teacher ata public or private
elementary or secondary school and work
at least 900 hours during the school year,
you can claim up to $250 of qualified ex-
penses and lower your 2005 tax bill.
Educators may be able to subtract up to
$250 of qualified expenses (such as class-
room supplies, books, computer equip-
ment, software) from their 2005 adjusted
gross income (AGI). This deduction is
available whether or not you itemize de-
ductions on a Schedule A.
You should keep records of qualifying
expenses noting the date, amount and pur-
pose of each purchase. This will help pre-
vent a missed deduction at tax time.

Isold my house and moved this summer.
Can Ideduct any of the expenses lincurred
on my tax return?
Your moving expenses may be de-
ductible on your federal tax return if you


meet certain tests relating to all three of the
following requirements:
Your move is closely related to the start
of work at a new job location;
You meet the distance test; and
You meet the time test.

However, if your employer reimburses
you for the cost of the move, you may have
to include the reimbursement in income.
(Check outPublication521, MovingExpenses.)
Many people find that home owner-
ship allows them to itemize deductions on
their tax returns. If you're a first time
homeowner, you should know that mort-
gage interest, "points" paid to obtain the
mortgage, and real estate taxes are de-
ductible expenses that can be itemized to
help reduce the amot1 ni of taxes you owe.
(For more information, see Publication
530, Tax Information for First-Time
Homeowners.)
If you sell your main home, you may be
able to exclude up to $250,000 of gain
($500,000 for married taxpayers filing a
joint return) from your federal tax return.
This exclusion is allowed each time you sell
your main home, but generally no more
frequently than once every two years. (See
Publication 523, Selling Your Home, for
more information.)


I'm not sure I've had enough tax with-
held from my pay checks this year. Is there
anything I can do to avoid owing money
when Ifile my2005 tax return?
If you think that you haven't had enough
tax withheld and will owe money when you
file your tax return, you can still adjust your
withholding with your employer by com-
pleting a new Form W-4, Employee's With-
holding Allowance Certificate. You can also
make an estimated tax payment. Having
enough tax withheld or paid through esti-
mated payments is necessary to avoid anun-
derpayment penalty.
If you are self-employed or have income
from dividends, interest, alimony,rent, gains
from the sale of assets, prizes or awards, you
may have to pay estimated tax. (See Publi-
cation 505for addiiilonal infoi( maition on
withholding and estimated tax payments.)

Howcanlget tax information and forms?
Tax information, forms and publica-
tions are available through the IRS Web
site 24 hours a day at www.irs.gov.

If you don't have access to the Internet
or want to speak with an IRS representa-
tive, you may call the IRS toll-free at 1-800-
829-1040. To order forms or publications,
call the IRS at 1-800-829-3676.

"Here we go 'round the mullberry bush,"

"This gives them the opportunity to see
how their career goals actually work in
the field."
This is Clay's ninth year in participat-
ing in the program, says Keating, which
was started at Vanderbuilt University
under the name of "Break Away." Since its
inception, hundreds of college students
have traveled to Clay County to paint
walls;help landscape, teach children and
care for trees as part of the program.
"I really admire the teachers. It's very
challengingg." .aid junior Kim.LeG.se
while playing with some preschool chil-
dren at Lighthouse Learn i ng Ce i ie i. "I
haven't reallyworked wi\ti h people w ith
disabilities before. Ijust have a lot of re-
spect for people in this profession. This
may be something I might look into."
The eye-opening experience, says
Keating, is one of the reasons her non-
profit organization signs up for the pro-
gram year after year.
"The students' lives have actually been
changesbe acise t[le\ in,,\ ha', ea newre-
spect for people:, wu; 'h cdisailitisc." said
Keating. "Someday one of these students
might be an owner of a large business
where they won't hesitate to hire an indi-
vidual with disabilities."
The UofI group is just the first of
three Break Away sessions scheduled this
year. Students from Vanderbuilt Univer-
sity and the University of South Florida
will come to Clay in March, says Keating.

gram or to find out more about Chal-

Comedy now playing at OP Community Theater


Theater Review by Lydia Filzen,
Correspondent
ORANGE PARK Orange Park Com-
munity Theater's: ii ioui sJanuary pres-
entation "Accommodations" features
bored housewife Lee, who is tired of
being taken for granted.
She decides to ditch her inattentive
husband and her split-level Westchester
house to start a new life in a tiny Green-
wich Village apartment. She's in for a few
surprises.
The two-room dump has a breathtak-
ing view of seven fire escapes that act as a
sort of weather gauge. When the air is
clear she can see them all. The bathtub
doubles as a kitchen sink, and the rest of
the bathroom is "out there."
Because Lee found the apartment
through a rental agency, she doesn't know
her two roommates, but meeting Pat is
the first shocker. She's an aspiring actress
who has a costume and persona for every
occasion. Cross-dressing neighbor,
Simon, provides Pat with an endless sup-
ply of glamorous gowns.
Then there's Tracy. He's a graduatestu-
dent who is just as astonished as Lee when
he finds out his roommates are of the op-
posite sex.
Worse, the sleeping accommodations
are limited to one double bed and a con-
vertible Ottoman. The roommates de-
cide to draw straws to determine which

her to return to home and kitchen. After
all, he invited his boss and family to their
home for dinner and needs Lee to cook
and entertain them. He's also in for a few
surprises when he meets her roommates,
especially Tracy, who looks like serious
competition for Lee in the romance de-
partment.

The fun and misdirection gave the
Friday night audience a full evening of
laughter until the satisfying ending.
The superb cast of four puts on a de-
lightful performance. Brennan Papke
plays the opportunity-rich male room-
mate, Tracy. Lindsey Kinard is a wonder-
ful multi-personality Pat.
Andi Ciccotelli is the frustrated
housewife Lee, and her determined
husband, Bob, is portrayed by Michael
Smithgall.

Blood helps ailing Middleburg boy


By Trisha Cormeny, Staff

MIDDLEBURG --Wat-
son Realty Corp.' Mid-
dleburg office hope- to
give one little boy fight-
ing leukemia a helping
hand when it hosts a
blood drive Saturday,
Jan. 14.
Twelve-year-old Tyler
Laymon needs many
pints of blood to fight
the disease, say event or-
ganizers, and all blood
types are welcome.


Tyler Laymon
Tyler Laymon


"Our office isjust really big on helping
people," said Trish Gibson about the office,
2239 Blanding Blvd. "For every pint taken
on Saturday, no matter what blood type, a
pint of his blood type will be put into his
bank"
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., a Florida-Geor-
giaBlood Alliance mobile will be parked at
the Blanding Blvd. location in hopes the
community will turn out to help one of
their own.
"Tyler'sjust a rambunctious 12-year-


old," said 34-year-old Chris Porter.
Porter heard about Laymon's condi-
tion while attending Ridgewood
Baptist Church and called Watson
for help. "It's horrible. He's way too
young to have to deal with that. All
we can do is pray."
Being a person to practice what
:: he preaches, Porter says he regularly
gives blood to help those such as Lay-
mon suffering from diseases and en-
Scourages others to do the same.
S "It'sjust the right thing to do," said
Porter. "Those of us who can donate,
should."
Residents interested in partici-
pating should call for an appointment to
avoid waiting. Blood donation takes ap-
proximately 45 minutes, say organizers.
"Twenty-five of us from the office are
donating," said Gibson. "We're hoping
there's so many people we have to bring in
another truck. That would be wonderful."
Watson Realty's Middleburg Office is
located across from Compass Bank and
next to Bush Thompson Insurance. To
find out more about this donation, one of
three scheduled to take place this year, call
Gibson at 213-3721.

Fl' ii -\Ur. iiny General' Cyber Crime
Unit. The Special Victims Unit of the Clay
County Sheriff's Office assisted with the
execution of the search warrant and the ar-
rest.
A six-week undercover online opera-
tion led to authorities getting a search war-
rant for Rose's apartment where they
allegedly found multiple images of child
1-" n,.r i .,i !p]l\ on his
home computer, au-
thorities said.
Two computers
were seized and will .
be submitted to the
Florida Department ... :
of Law Enforcement

believe Rose used his home computer to
transmit numerous images of child
pornography over the Internet.
Authorities said Rose faces a maximum
prison sentence of 15 years for each image
that was transmitted.He is currently being
held in the Clay Countyjail.
State Attorney Charlie Crist said a study
done in recent years found at least 24 mil-
lion childrenbetween the ages of 10 and 17

One out of every five of these children
received a sexual solicitation, one in every
four received unwanted pictures of naked
people or people having sex, one in every

every 33 receive d an ag i c-.ive sexual so-
licitation asking the recipient to meet,
phone or accept gifts.

'Doll House' suspect charged

GREEN COVE SPRINGS Police say
what appeared to be the abduction of a

out to be a lover's quarrel involving Clay
County residents.
But one of the people involved was later
charged with a felony.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's .Office and
Clay County Sheriff's Office homicide-unit
determined the reported abductionabout 11
p.m. Monday,Jan. 9, at the Atlantic Boule-
vard bar was "unfounded," said Clay County
Sheriffs Office spokesperson MaryJustino.
When police found the 20-year-old
woman she told them she and her 18-year-


old boyfriend, Victor Paulk, had been
drinking that night and were arguing. The
woman said she got out of their vehicle
containing Paulk
and another man,
but then voluntarily
got back into what
was a stolen vehicle. .

Planning is key to county's future: Rutledge


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
disraelmesser@jcpgroup.com


ORANGE PARK -The County
Board of Commissioner's newest ,
member, Harold Rutledge, came
to the boardjust months before
news broke of investigations into
illegal dumping at the county's
landfill sites.
Within months of that an-
nouncement, he and other board
members accepted resignations Haro
from the county manager, Bob
Wilson and the county public works direc-
tor, Arthur Ivey.
After a year of serving as a commis-
sioner, Rutledge sat down to discuss how
his year has gone and what he sees for the
next year.
Rutledge, who held six town hall meet-
ings last year throughout the county, plans
to have two meetings in his district in May
andJune to hear from constituents about
their priorities for the county's budget
Commissioners now have a single dis-
trict to represent.
"I care about the citizens' money," said
Rutledge, who will be taking new County
Manager Fritz Behring with him to the
town hall meetings.
Rutledge, who convinced the board to
consider using a private search firm to


Id


search for a county manag-
er, is positive Behring will be
one of the best managers in
the county's record
Behring was one of the
applicants asked by the firm
to apply for the position.
Rutledge who made a
point last year of saying he
was a commissioner for the
entire county now says he
still gets more contact from
IRutledge citizens throughout the
County than from his district.
Planning is key to Clay County's future
according to Rutledge, who is proud of the
Lake Asbury Master Plan approved by the
board last year
"The Lake Asbury Plan is very smart
planning," said Rutledge who says he
hopes managed growth and smart plan-
ning will come to other portions of the
county including unincorporated areas in
the Orange Park area.
Citizen involvement will be important
when the county starts its process to exe-
cute the requirements for SB 360, the
growth management bill passed by the
legislature and signed by the governor
last year.
Rutledge attempted to get other com-
missioners to buy into developing a "vi-
sion" for the county, which they declined


to do.
Rutledge believes SB 360 will require
the county to prepare a plan that provides
a vision, which he hopes will be prepared
with citizens in on the ground floor.
"Then we can look at what we can af-
ford," said Rutledge.
Looking at what the county can afford
is key also to getting dirt roads paved in the
county, according to Rutledge.
While the county has had a prioritized
list of roads to pave, actual activity to pave
those roads has not followed suit, he says.
"The board needs to come up with a
plan to pay for it (paving)," said Rutledge.
Looking ahead Rutledge believes a plan
for preventative maintenance would save
the county money in the long term,
whether for roads or ditches or other in-
frastructure needs.
Rutledge anticipates the adoption of an
ethics policy for the commission that
would cover county staff.
Reforming the budget document for-
mat so the commission will know "where
your money goes" is another goal, he says.
Economic development planning with
the chamber of commerce where the
county provides its expertise in infrastruc-
ture planning and funding and the outer
beltway designation are issues Rutledge in-
tends to pursue within tde next year.
"I expect that in the next six months


we'll have a location for the outer beltway,"
said Rutledge, who said ajoint meeting
with St, Johns County commissioners
would help speed that decision.
As for budget expenditures and the
funding for personnel, Rutledge said, "If
we want talented people, we get what we
pay for, so we need to look at education and
experience. We will have to pay for it and it
will be worth every penny of it. All of our
county employees deserve a good wage."
As for his reaction for last year's events,
including the dumping, the associated in-
vestigations and the changes in personnel
Rutledge is looking ahead to next year.
"The difficult things thatarose last year
Share all in your perspective," said Rutledge.
"I ran in the River Run last year with a
friend (who runs faster) for the first time
and thought I might have trouble with the
Hart Bridge."
Rutledge said his friend told him to
look behind him to see that it was all down-
hill, and later that the deck of the bridge
was flat, and finally that it was all downhill
from there.
"Look at all of the great things that hap-
pened last year, we're talking about more is-
sues, and we identified problems that were
happening for years before and dealing
with them," said Rutledge who added he
expects requests included in an adopted
budget to be able to occur faster.

"New" Pet Clinic opens in Lake Asbury


ByTonya Davie, Correspondent
GREEN COVE SPRINGS There's a
"new" place in town to take animal
friends when they need their yearly
check-up or special attention.
The Lake Asbury Pet Clinic is a "new"
place because it has not been in this area
or at this location before now. It's not to-
tally new though because the staff has
been working at the Black Creek Veteri-
nary Hospital for years.
The Lake Asbury Pet Clinic at 2851
He n1:\ Rd. Suite 103 openedJan. 2.
Veterinarian Craig Price, who also
owns Black Creek Veterinary Hospital, is
very familiar with this area as he has been
in this area for most of his life.
Because his dad was stationed at NAS
JAX during part of his 40-year Naval ca-
reer, Price was born at NASJAX. He grad-
uated from Forest High School and the
University of Florida.
When it was time to start his own pet
clinic, he chose the Middleburg area be-
cause he likes being a mixed animal prac-
titioner.
"Clay County is in the top five counties
in the state of Florida for number of
horses," said Price.
Price also gets involved with the com-
munity and local schools. When asked, he
attends career days, works with the sci-
ence classes and does what he can for all
grades.
Some of the staff one might see at the
Lake Asbury and Black Creek Clinics in-
cludes Gretchen Currey, Courtney Van-
noy andJudee Mattox.
Currey is the Hospital Manager of the
Lake Asbury Pet Clinic and has been
working with Price for six years.
Vannoy has been in the vet business
for nine years, spending seven of those


Special to Clay Today
Dr.Jeffrey Runge, head of the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA), was quoted in an AP story as say-
ing that, "Since the early 1990s, we haven't
made any progress," regarding effectively
reducingdrunkdrivingintheUnitedStates.
There were approximately 17,000 alco-
hol-related fatalities in each of the last three
years,according to theNHTSA. With rough-
ly 14 million people in the country current-
ly addicted to alcohol and millions more
displaying symptoms of abuse, the number
of casualties is unfortunately not surprising.
The same AP story said Runge was
pushing for funding for states to develop
more drunk driving courts with special
prosecutors and judges. There are cur-
rently a few of such courts in the United
States. The intent to focus on one singular
issue seems to have been successful, much
like the idea of drug courts and their surge
in popularity and effectiveness.
One key to the success of such programs
in the courtsystem is effective rehabilitation
for the addicts. This is an essential compo-
nent, whether individual is sentenced to
outpatient or residential treatment.
One of the most successful rehabilita-
tion programs in the country is called Nar-
conon Arrowhead, which is the largest
center in a worldwide network of Nar-
conon programs in 36 countries.
Narconon Arrowhead addresses addic-
tion with proven effectiveness to fully re-
habilitate the individual, not with some
temporary patch treatment or medication
and not from the viewpoint that addiction
is an incurable disease.
Based on the secular drug-free rehabil-
itation methodology developed by Amer-
ican author and humanitarian L Ron
Hubbard, approximately 70 percent of
Narconon program graduates remain


with Price.
Mattox has worked with thisgroup for
six years.
Others working for Price have been
with him for as long as 15 years.
"I'm proud to have long term employ-
ees," said Price. "They've stayed with us
and enjoyed staying with us."
The vets who work at these locations
along with Price are Krista Davis, Mace
Bartin and Elizabeth Cleveland. Davis
takes care of the small animals and will
rotate between Black Creek and Lake As-
bury along with Price. Bartin and Cleve-
land take care of the farm calls.-
The Lake Asbury Pet Clinic is a full
service hospital and can take care of com-
panion animals such as dogs, cats, ferrets
and gerbils.
They perform almost every service ex-
cept for boarding and major surgery. If
the care needed includes either of these,
the pet will be seen at the Black Creek of-
fice. Besides the medical attention, the
Black Creek office also has limited board-
ing for clients.
When they have no extra space for
boarding or if the animal is not a client,
they suggest boarding the animal at Mid-
dleburg Kennel and Grooming Salon at
2251 S Dolphin Ave in Middleburg. "This
is one of the cleanest kennels around,"
said Price.
Along with the normal companion
animals and farm animals (pigs, cattle,
goats, donkeys and horses) they have
taken care of emus and exotic wildlife. If
they feel they cannot do the best for ex-
otic wildlife, they will consult with
wildlife specialists or direct patients on
where to go for the best care.
The hours of the Lake Asbury Pet Clin-
ic are 8 am.- 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For more information, call 282-9535.

SCHOOL from page A-1

However, with the number of units
projected for construction, Elliott said
the district would run short of funds nec-
essary to construct schools, even if sites
were donated.
Compounding the problem is the
prospect of developers getting credits for
donated land instead of paying the impact
fees. An example of the problem came
with the proposal unveiled last spring by
LandMar, developers of the Saratoga
Springs development near Green Cove
Springs.
Saratoga Springs will add more than
4,300 units to the county. According to
David Connor, district coordinator of
planning and intergovermnental relations,
the district assumed students would be
generated by only 3,562 of those units.
The rest of the units are considered "ac-
tive adult" or senior units, which will have
deed restrictions that will not allow chil-
dren to be housed in the units.
Elliot asked the board for guidance in
negotiating with LandMar, developers of
Saratoga Springs (plannednear State Road
16 and County Road 315).
On Dec. 21, 2000,the school board ap-
proved an exchange of land between the
district and the property owner, Jerry
Agresti.
As a result of a request from the owner,
and an appraisal of the proper-ties, the
board approved trading 21 acres of district-
owned property for equally appraised
pieces of property owned by Agresti,
which amounted to 77 acres.
The acreage was to be used for three
school sites, as well as other school district
purposes.
Elliott said,"LandMar wants to transfer
only 60 acres to the district for school site
use only, and to receive impact fee credits
for the land."
"It's not like it was given to us, it was an
exchange, like a swap. Why would you give
credit for a swap?" said school board mem-
ber Lisa Graham.
Board member Carol Studdard pulled
out the minutes from the board meeting in
2000toremindtheboardof theactiontaken.
- In that meeting Agresti had assured the
board the agreement to swap the property

could be recorded against the property
and to "run with the land, even if I pass the
property onto somebody else".


The school district planned to use the
acreage for several schools and for ancillary
district uses, including a school bus yard.

An additional 1431 units have been added to the total number of units. These units
were not previously included in the total presented to the school board. School Dis-
trict staff estimates this number of units translates into 8843 student stations in the
district that will need to be added.


MCGOVERN from page A-1


Buying the Utility Authority was an
important move, he said.
He also labeled the Branan Field sec-
tor plan a landmarkk decision." It was a
decision, McGovern said, that brought
developers to the table and made devel-
opment pay for itself.
But in regard to the Beltway "Every-
thing else pales by corhparison."
Regarding the Outer Beltway, McGov-
ern said he didn't think that federal funding


would materialize. He said that large funds
usually went to large counties such as Duval
andDade.
Speaking to the BCC later in the meet-
ing, former Commissioner Dale Wilson
commended both McGovern and Las-
siter on their service to the community.
"You will be missed," he said, "but you
will not miss the stress, the demands on
your time."
Earlier in the meeting, Commissioner
George Bush told the BCC that he couldn't
agree with a suggestion to go to mediation
between Clay and StJohns Counties as to a
route for the Beltway. He said that Clay
County needed to establish a position be-
fore resorting to mediation. He also said
that economic development is not an issue
and pointed out that 1-95 had been built


i


estinllaed.
Beyond using ad valorem for construc-
tion, the district has historically used it to
fund replacement of school buses, main-
tenance and other operational costs to the
district
"You can't be losing ad valorem to other
things," said board chair Carol Vallencourt.
Location of the school sites within
Saratoga Springs is in dispute with the dis-
trict wanting more centrally located sites
reducing the need for busing.
The board confirmed with Elliot they
wanted him to be attentive to the original
agreement.
Elliot told the board" we know impact
fees are not enough" to fund the district's
construction needs adding that construc-
tion costs are climbing with the district es-
timates now using 2 -year old data from
the state (the state has not issued any re-
cent figures).
Elliot was asked by the board to check
again with the state on when new con-
struction costs will be issued.
SThe board was asked to consider the
possibility of having 100 percent relocata-
bles at elementary schools, a proposal that
dismayed board members.
"I don't want to do that to our students,"
said Superintendent David Owens.
Elliot said the district now has 1,100 relo-
catables in the system with approximately
60 being added every year.
I would not go for 100 percent relocat-
ables," said board member Carol Studdard.
Board members agreed no school
should have more than 30 percent to 50
percent of their classrooms as relocatables.
Preparation of an adequate facilities
plan by the county will be a task pursued by
-the county planning department this year
according to Elliot. However that docu-
ment may not provide relief immediately.
Elliot said he has been told by state De-
partment of Community Affairs staff the
county may not consider the adequacy of
schools on an area basis until three years
have passed.
Instead the entire county must be used
ignoring the fact that there may be capaci-
ty in one area where there is no capacity in
another part of the county.
This raises the prospect of re-districting
school attendance boundaries until the
district can look at an individual schools'
capacity.
Superintendent David Owens remind-
ed the board they are building stripped
down schools compared to schools such as
the new Arlington Elementary School,
which just opened in Duval County.


through St.Johns County many years ago
and only now is commercial development
appearing along the route.
Bush said that he did not favor a toll fa-
cility or the use of local funds to build the
highway; he said that the county should
pursue federal funding.
Bush advocated holding public meet-
ings with interested citizens much like
those conducted by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation.
Lassiter, however, said that a decision
can't be made without input from all peo-
ple including St,Johns County.
McGovern agreed, saying we need St.
Johns County.
"If you pick a route," McGovern said,
"land donations go away. Taxes should
not have to buy the land."

roster ranging from Negro Spirituals to The

Wounded soldier talks with FIE class


Special to Clay Today
Before leaving on his second tour of
duty, Marine Sgt. LanceJennings of Or-
ange Park, visited Fleming Island Ele-
mentary School fifth graders.


The students "adopted"Jennings by
writing letters, making posters, and send-
ingweekly Motomail.
Jennings was injured while serving in
Fallujah, Iraq. He received the Purple
Heart before keeping his promise to re-


turn to the past and present classes of 5th
graders.
To his surprise his grandmother, Lor-
raine Steward, and his mother, Cindy
Jennings, were also in attendance. Their
favorite Marine graciously talked to and


answered questions from the eager
group.
The children were thrilled to see
their hero, proud of his commitment to
our country, and thankful to have him
home.


Marine Sgt. Lance Jennings visited his pen pal class at Fleming Island Elementary re-
cently. Jennings had just returned from a tour in Iraq.


PHOTOS SPECIAL TO CLAY TODAY
Jennings took the time to talk with a group of fifth graders about his experience in
Iraq and the importance student letters were to him.


Store opens for aquarium enthusiasts


By Amy Dimmock, Correspondent
FLEMING ISLAND- Local resident
Daniel Mills turned his longtime hobby
Sintoa business b\ opening Flemin Igsla1nd'S


Daniel Mills and his 6-month old son
Daniel, Jr. wait to help the next customer at


new aquarium store, Dan Co Fish Tails.
Located in Suite 175 at 1605 County
Road 220 in the plazajust west of Home
Depot, Fish Tails opened Nov.18.
Fish Tails specializes in African Cich-
lidsJapanese Koi and Saltwater aquariums
but stocks a large variety of freshwater fish
and aquarium and pond supplies as well.
Inventory is ordered from around the
world, arriving from places such as In-
donesia, Hawaii and California. Though
his inventory may fluctuate, if a customer
is looking for a specific fish, Mills can spe-
cial order it.
Mills offers assistance to customers
whether they're experienced with aquari-
ums or looking to start one up.
"I will help out in every way I can. I'm all
about customer service," he said.
For newcomers to aquariums, Mills rec-
ommends a freshwater tank.
"A saltwater tank is easy to take care of
but it's more involved [than a freshwater
tank]," he said. He is happy to help cus-
tomers set up their tanks and carries a large


Mills' aquarium store, Fish Tails, now open
in Fleming Island west of Home Depot. AQUARIUM continued on page A-28

p.m. but no processing is done.
Dry Clean City also uses the most up-
to-date and environmentally friendly
process to clean clothing, which can also
be starched on request, he said.
Some customers may be surprised to
find Dry Clean City is a "pay in advance"
store, but Wheeler said that allows the
company to reduce costs.
Wheeler is a strong believer in the dry
cleaning process versus using a standard
home washer, especially for work cloth-
ing or formal wear.
"It eliminates shrinkage or color loss
that you get when you just wash your
clothes," he said.
The Wheelers took over only two
weeks ago and ask customers to realize
they are still repairing equipment and
streamlining the process. He said some
past customers might have stopped com-
ing there because of practices done
under the former ownership.
"Wejust want them to know there is
new ownership and to give us a try again,"
said Wheeler, adding that he is not affili-
ated with any other Dry Clean City in the
Jacksonville area.
"We helped build all of them in the
Jacksonville area," he said. "But now the)
are 1run1 by someone else."

GCS pooch going to national show


By Lydia Filzen, Correspondent
GREEN COVE SPRINGS For the sec-
ond year running, a Clay County dog has
earned the right to compete in the invita-
tion-only American Kennel Club/Eu-
kanuba National Championship show.
Ruby, a four-year-old Belgian Tervuren,
was rated one of the top 25 show dogs of
her breed in the nation last year. She will
make the trip with owner Lynn Wetherell,
where she will vie for top honors with some
of the finest show dogs in the world.
Wetherell selected Ruby, officially
known as Champion Bilgay's Red Hot
Mama, Novice Agility Jumper, from a lit-
ter owned by a Tampa breeder, Jane'
Mixon. Because Wetherell had handled
Ruby's dam to her championship, Mixon
rewarded her with a pick pup. Wetherell
and Ruby have been a highly successful
team ever since.
Conformation dog shows such as the In-
vitational are judged according to how
closely eacH dog meets a written breed
standard. Each aspect of the ideal dog is de-
scribed, from head type and coat to body
structure and temperament.
Ruby has won about 100 Best of Breeds
so far.

Best of Breed winners go on to compete in
their respective groups according to breed
function. Winners of the seven groups
compete for Best-In-Show. Ruby has won
many placements in the hotly contested
Herding Group including a first place.
Not just a pretty face, Ruby also herds
sheep, competes in agility and is preparing
for obedience trials. She shows typical
herding dog intelligence.
"She can open any door," Wetherell said.
"She uses her nose or her paw to flip up a
latch and she will let out all the other dogs
so she can play with them."
Wetherell's husband Ron keeps both
himself and Ruby in condition by taking
her for a three-mile-bike spin every other
morning on the Black Creek Trail. Between
roadwork and the running and jumping
required in agility practice, Ruby and her
owners stay fit and trim.
"Iacquired my first Belgian Tervuren
in 1988," Wetherell said. "I was looking for
a working dog that didn't have a lot of
health problems."
She met Gail Cooper, a breeder who
lived in Mandarin at the time.
"Gail sold me my first Terv, then we be-
came partners." Besides breeding and
showing their dogs, Wetherell and Cooper
run an obedience school in Orange Park.
Wetherell also offers agility training at
her facility.
The AKC/Eukanuba National Cham-
pionship will be held at the Tampa Con-
vention CenterJan. 14-15.
The group and best-in-show judging
will be carried live on Animal Planet and
the Discovery Channel, starting at 8 p.m.
both nights. In addition to the conforma-
tion dog show, the invitational will also fea-
ture agility and obedience competitions.
All entrants have earned the right to
compete by meeting certain criteria, The
event is also open to top competitors from
other nations.
"I sent her to last year's Invitational with
a handler, but this year I'm showing her
myself," Wetherell said. "I am so excited I
can hardly stand it It's an honor to have
earned the right to go, and to be included
in the top 25."



Elliott exhibit

opens at THCA

Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK Denial, unity, es-
trangement, flight and approach,
bondage and freedom, birth and death,
transformation and stagnation are just
some of the multi-faceted issues visual
artist Ginny Elliott explores in her new
exhibit Inside Outside.
Elliott, a Fleming Island resident,
says her paintings are centered on her
Christian beliefs and certain aspects of
Jungian psychology.
"My paintings evoke spiritual or psy-
chological truths for the viewer," said
Elliott. "They draw attention to man's
feelings of wonder, mystery, pain, joy
and awe as he struggles with the spiritu-
al and psychological aspects of living in
today's world."
Each painting, on display at the
Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts,
Jan. 13- March 18, tackles heavy issues
using characters rich with color to weave
the central theme of good verses evil.
The Thrasher-Horne Center is
owned and operated by St.Johns River
Community College and is located on
the college's Orange Park campus, at
283 College Drive.
Gallery hot irs are 10 a.m. 4 p.m., Mon-
day-Friday. Galleries are also opened
during all schliedi i performances.

Blackett leaves engineering command


Special to Clay Today

JACKSONVILLE Naval Facili-
ties Engineering Command lost a
dedicated civil servant and mentor
to many employees as Navy Public
Works CenterJacksonville's Busi-
ness Manager Kenneth Blackett re-
tired on Jan. 3 after 36 years of
federal service.
Many employees and friends of
Blackett, who lives on Fleming Is-
land, attended a retirement lunch-
eon on Dec. 15, to celebrate and

By JO1 Mike England
Assistant Editor,JaxA irNews

The following are questions and an-
swers from a recent interview with Rear
Adm. Mark Boensel, commander, Navy
Region Southeast who assumed the posi-
tion Dec. 9.
Q:How does it feel to be back inJack-
sonville?
A: It's great to see familiar faces and be
back in the territory I'm acquainted with. I
guess your comfort level goes up a little
when you come back to a place you know
your way around, fully realizing of course
that my new job has a scope well beyond
Jacksonville.

Q: What do you think will be your
greatest challenges as Commander,
Navy Region Southeast?
A: I think we're still in a transforma-
tional mode in the way we manage shore
installations. That will continue in the con-
text of BRAC and the possibility of being
responsible for geographical areas we
weren't responsible for before. Certainly,
this part of the country has been subject to
some natural disaster issues in the past and
the forecasters tell me that we can expect
that to continue for the foreseeable future.
I think those along with the continuing
challenges with budgets and resources will
be the biggest things to look at.

Q: What will your priorities be as
CNRSE?
A: Being able to deliver the right
amount of readiness at right cost to the
fleet is definitely a priority. We still have
work to do in determining the right
amount of readinessas global changes and
mission changes trickle down to us. The
kind of services we provide andthe extent
to which we provide them will also evolve.
On the resource side, we need to find ways
to perform the mission as efficiently and
economically as we can.

Q: What kind of changes do you see
coming down the pipe that will affect
the average Sailor?
A: The average Sailor will see alot more
responsibility put on them individually for
their development. This goes along with

Blackett's first federaljob was soldiering
duty with the U.S. Army as an Infantry-

jobs and 11 moves from Utah to Germany,

Liberty Tax collecting 'cell phones for soldiers'


By Bob Henderson, Staff

MIDDLEBURG The inflatable Stat- i
ue of Liberty must be at least ten feet
tall. She's hard to miss, even when driv-
ing down Blanding Boulevard in Mid-
dleburg just before CR218.
Beside Lady Liberty, under a
canopy, stands Erin Knight, dressed as
the statue, itself, and her husband, Ray,
dressed as Uncle Sam. The couple, pro-
prietors of Liberty Tax Service, 2620
Blanding Blvd., are collecting retired
cell phones for reactivation and distri-
bution to armed forces personnel on
active duty.
They plan to be there, out in the
parking under the giant Statue of Lib-
erty for the next five Saturdays, 11 a.m.
to 3p.m. After that, they will still accept
cell phones at their office throughout
the tax season, until April 15.

gram had its genesis id2004 when 13-
year-old Brittany Berlquist and her 12-
year-old brother, Robbie, of Norwell,
Mass., heard a news report about a sol-
dier who was faced with a huge tele-
phone bill from calling home from
Iraq.
The two raided their piggy banks,
collected snack money from their
1 friends and took $21 to open a special
account at a bank. The bank donated
$500 and the program was launched.
Today, not quite two years later, the
program has spread nation wide with
Liberty Tax Service as one of the na-
tional sponsors.
OnJan. 7, Dan Parent, a teacher at
Wilkinson Junior High School,
dropped by. Impressed by the pro-
)N gram, he offered to spearhead a coun-
ts tywide school effort. The Elements
Science Club of Wilkinson has taken
on the project and will be the focus of col-
lections in all the schools.

contract to give the commission auditor
somejob protection.
Adding a 'just cause" clause to the audi-
tor's contract would give Price "more au-
tonomy," Rutledge said. Currently, the
auditor works under an "at will" contract.
Rutledge described Price as "very
strong willed" and said he couldn't foresee
an-instance where he would not grant
Price permission to pursue an audit.
CRC member Rob Bradley said the
panel could recommend the change,
which would not involve altering the coun-
ty charter.
Another CRC member, Roy Lyons, said
he supported any change that would"give
them autonomy ... so they don'thave to
worry about being fired."
More meetings are planned, including
7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23, at Green Cove
Springs City Hall. Members also plan to at-
tend a Home Rule Charter workshop at 6

Panthers work overtime to beat Raiders 73-70


By Horace Davis, Staff
idavis@jcpgroup.co in

ORANGE PARK In possibly the game
of the year in Clay County or at least up
to this point, the Orange Park Raiders
hosted the Ridgeview Panthers on
Thursday,Jan 5 and the game had all the
makings of a classic match.
The Panthers came into the game
with an 11-1 record and had moved up to
the number seven spot in the state rank-
ing for class 4A. While the Raiders had
reeled off three consecutive wins fol-
lowing their surprising loss to the Clay
Blue Devils for an 8-1 record.
The atmosphere was festive as close


"This was a big win for our guys, to
come into a hostile environment and win
this ball game shows their resiliency", said
Panther head coach Rob Feltner.
Hostile crowd it was, the Raider faith-
fuljeered any moment they could, how-
ever the Panther faithful that helped
pack the crowd, in turn jeered when
they could and Ridgeview mascot Slash
was turned away from his patented Pan-
ther cheer at mid court by several
Raider fans (one was escorted out) but
Slash never got to finish.
While Orange Park took an early
first quarter lead of 14-12, thanks in part
to Mark Marlar's six points and a three-
point bomb by Harris (one of four).

times sinking two.
Ridgeview's Gilbert took the game
over in the third quarter scoring 11
points (6 consecutive) and brought the
visiting crowd to their feet with a thun-
derous slam-dunk off an inbounds pass
from under the basket from Reece.
But the Raiders answered with senior
center Tristan Choo-Quan who scored
six points in the quarter, Darius Jenkins
five and another Harris three-ball and
the Raiders trailed by just three-points
at the end of three 60-57.
Ridgeview's Godette picked up where
Gilbert left off, he scored 6 fourth quar-
ter points including a three-pointer
however, he fouled out after scoring 18
points with 1:02 left in the game.
Again, free throw shooting was the
nemesis for the Raiders; they shot 11 free
throws in the fourth quarter and made
just four, as a team they shot just 26 per-
cent from the line in the game.
In spite of the porous free throw
shooting, Moses McCauley's three-
pointer with twenty-seconds left pulled
them within 66-63 setting the stage for
Harris's three-pointer with two seconds.
But in the overtime, a Longmire
three and baskets by Reece and Gilbert
sent the Panthers home with their
twelfth win and the Raiders with their
second loss.
Both coaches were proud of their
teams play and intense spirit on the
floor but Orange Park's Lauderdale was
dismayed with his teams' awful free
throw shooting, "That killed us, along
with too many unforced turnovers. But
Ridgeview is a very good team and de-
serves their #7 ranking".
Ridgeview's Feltner reflected on his
bench play, "We are fortunate to have a
deep bench because we needed every-
one. We lostJamal (Godette) to fouls and


he was having a great game, we were in
foul trouble throughout the night but
the guys kept battling and played thru
the whistles".

ty go at one another and they were given
a treat with an extra quarter of play
when Raider guard Mike Speicher-Har-
ris drilled a 3-point shot with two sec-
onds remaining to send the game into
the extra four minutes.
"This was a great game by both
teams", said Raider head coach Darrel
Lauderdale.
"Sure I'm disappointed we lost and
did not defend our home court but I'm
not disappointed in how the kids
played. I love the heart and intensity
they played with tonight and every
game", he added.
The game featured plenty of action
and took on a college type atmosphere,
from the end to end play and the full
court presses by both teams, to the ex-
plosive dunk by Ridgeview's Charles
Gilbert on an inbounds play in the third
quarter and finally to the desperation.

to put the Raiders up by five but
Ridgeview's Evan Reece answered with
a three to cut the deficit to 19-17, then
the Panthers went on a 7-1 run with
back-to-back three-pointers by
Charles Gilbert andJerred Longmire
to take a 26-20 lead.
However, Marlar added two baskets
andJerome Clyburn added a three-point
play to tie the game at 31 at the break.

ter fouls plagued the Panthers, Joe
Everett picked up his second foul before
the break and Ridgeview was in the
penalty with 3:21 left before the half.
In spite of the foul trouble, Orange
Park failed to benefit, they shot 5 of 17

Bears offense too much


for Golden Eagles


By Alan Nicotra, Correspondent

JACKSONVILLE The Fleming Island
Golden Eagles made the trip to St.Johns
County on FridayJan 6 to face the Bar-
tram Trail Bears, a St.Johns River Con-
ference and district 3-5A foe.
The Bears, led by point guard Dar-
rick Mercer's 16 andJosh Lanning's 15
points handled the Golden Eagles from
the tip-off, defeating them 62-42, hand-
ing the Golden Eagles their eleventh
loss of the season.
Bartram Trail began the game with
an early 6-0 lead, resulting from
turnovers by the Eagles on the offensive
side. A three pointer fromJosh Lanning,

one of three in the game, gave the Bears
an 11-6 lead with 3:00 left in the first
quarter. For Fleming Island, baskets
from Patrick Boyle and Justin Stokes cut


the Bartram lead to only three points, 15-
12 as the first quarter came to an end.
In the second quarter, Bartram
Trail's offense worked to perfection,
using back door passes and the pick
and roll to go on a 14-2 run in the quar-
ter. Then Bears forward Brian Davis
nailed a three-pointer with 5:10 left in
the half, increasing the Bears lead to
22-14.
Bartram point guard Mercer contin-
ued his offensive dominance in the sec-
ond quarter, finishing the first half with
12 points. Fleming Island was held to
only two points the entire quarter, as the
Eagles were unable to convert on easy
scoring opportunities and were forced
into numerous turnovers.
Fleming Island trailed Bartram Trail
29-14 at the end of the first half and they
would never get closer.
Bartram Trail continued to pound
the Golden Eagles on the offensive
boards; they opened the quarter with an
11-4 run to take a 39-18 lead with 2:54 to
play in the third quarter.
Fleming Island head coach Ivin Gun-
der knew his team needed a spark and
he called on Andrew Bridgewater.
Bridgewater came off the bench in
the third quarter and added a much-
needed offensive spark, scoring six
quick points in the quarter to cut the
Bears lead to 44-22 heading into the
final quarter.
Now down by 22 points, Fleming Is-
land attempted to create easy scoring
chances by putting in a full court press to
try and slow the Bartram Trail offense.
Their attempt to make a comeback in
the game was to no avail as the Bears
continued to score seemingly every time
down the court.

a fourth quarter drought in which the

"I think the experience factor played

Bolles shuts down Golden Eagles 3-0


BY TL Cochran, Correspondent

FLEMING ISLAND -The
Bolles Bulldogs surprised the
Fleming Island Golden Eagles
with three-first half goals and
once they got the lead they rein-
forced their defenders to keep
the Eagles off the board for the
shutout win on Monday,Jan 9.
The Eagles started quickly,
when Manny Lozano made a se-
ries of nice moves to get past a
Bolles midfielder but the Bull-
dog defense stopped the play
and in turn earned a corner
kick.
Bolles midfielder Chris Har-
rington touched a header past
Fleming Island goalkeeper
Matt Urbano for the first of the
three goals.
Urbano then made a spec-
tacular stop to keep the Eagles
only one goal behind but that
did not last long because sec-
onds later Bolles striker Scott
Sylvester was missed by defend-
ers in front of the net and

Fleming Island's loss.


slipped a shot past Urbano
for the second goal.
Just minutes later Bolles
forward Chase Decker scored
on a common crossing play.
A confused Eagles defense
allowed Decker a clear path
to the net and he made them
pay to give Bolles the 3-0 lead
and that's all they would need
tonight.
'A good team takes advan-
tage of another team's mis-
takes and that's what they did
tonight", said Eagles head
coach Frank Pontore.
"We're just not being ag-
gressive, we're not going to
the ball and we're losing our
marks. Things you can't do
when you play good teams",
he added.
Fleming Island worked
well between the eighteen-
yard lines but could not pen-
etrate the Bolles red zone.
The Bolles sweeper main-
tained perfect position and
bottled up Eagle forwards


Lozano and Chris Moore in the offen-
sive zone.
On the Fleming Island defensive end,
keeper Urbano was tested like never be-
fore by the attacking Bolles pressure, the
Golden Eagles could have very easily
been looking at a larger deficit than
three goals in the first half.
Following the disastrous half of play,
Pontore made wholesale changes in his
game set-up for the second.
Ryan Locke moved back to sweeper
from midfield andJosh Andone moved
up to forward along with Lozano.
The move appeared to work as the
Eagles were able to move the ball deep
into Bolles territory and Lozano finally
broke loose for a hard shot on goal and
earned a corner kick.
Fleming Island looked a lot better in
the second half but just not enough to
overcome a terrible first half of play as
they watched their record fall to 12-4-2.
"It's the story of two halves", said Pon-
tore. "You can't play forty-minutes, you
have to play a whole game but we'll look
to bounce back in our next two games
against Bishop Kenny and Clay later this
week", he added.


Broncos' late goal deals


Falcons first loss

Townsend's game winner.
MIDDLEBURG The Middleburg
Broncos seemed to be in control after a
Michael McDonald goal gave them a 3-1
second half lead, but a late rally by the
Menendez Falcons who scored two goals
tied the game at three, however, Middle-
burg striker Zech Townsend played a
corner pass into the net with less than
eight minutes left to give the Broncos
the win and hand the Falcons their first
loss of the season in an exciting match
from start to finish.
Middleburg improved to 11-2-3 and
impressed their coach Adam Goodwin
on the way, "the guys played great, they
played like a team, this was a total team
victory", he said.
"I was really impressed with the pass-
ing, everyone passed well, we shot well,
finished good and our defense played
well also", he added.

Lady Raiders late goal


ties Lady Eagles


BY TL Cochran, Correspondent

FLEMING ISLAND -The Orange Park
Lady Raiders were the happiest team to
get a tie in a game this season when they
scored a goal in the final two minutes to
tie the Fleming Island Lady Eagles 1-1 in
a rivalry game Thursday, Jan. 5.
The fans that braved the declining
temperature could have arrived for the
first two minutes of the game, watched
Fleming Island score in the first two
minutes, left for dinner and come back
74 minutes later for the last two minutes
to see the Orange Park goal.
The Eagles Lacy Matsko took a pass
fromJane Buzzell and fired an easy shot
past Orange Park's goalkeeper Carolyn
Navarro for the score with only a minute
and a half off the clock.
The Raiders answered with a break-


matic plays or strong shots on goal as
both defenses turned back the opposing
teams strikers well short of the goal area.
However, with ten minutes remaining
in the game, the tide began to turn with

Then with less than two minutes to
play, Orange Park's Padgett fired a high

bounced past the Fleming Island's goal-
keeper Sara Federschmidt into the far
corner of the net to tie the game.
Orange Park Coach Eric Andrew
who had not beaten the Eagles in two
previous matches said, "It was a wonder-

least a tie in the match".

Spring runs offer hot action in cold season


*Editors note Clay Today introduces
Vance McCullough who will write weekly
outdoor column about Clay County's out-
doors scene.
If you any ideas for Vance, send hint an
emailat 7vance8@comcast.net

Many people believe the St. Johns
River is the "Bass Capital of the World".
The best time to fish it may be during
the coolest months of the year, when
oxygen levels are high and heavy female
bass prowl the shallow grass lines to
feed-up prior to the spawning rite that is
just about to kick off this month.
However, cold fronts play havoc with
the best-laid plans this time of year and
the north half of the river can seem prac-
tically dead. The spawn won't be on for a
couple of months up this way, with March
to May being prime time. The most de-
pendable areas right now are the spring-
fed runs of Lake George's west bank.

Florida Shlrine Bo%\ I game, which en-
ables dle Nlotocco Shrine to provide
treatment to thousands of children free
of charge, will be played on Saturday,
Jan. 21 at Orange Park High School.
The shrine of North America oper-
ates 22 hospitals specializing in ortho-
pedic and burn treatment as well as
research and has been a leader in help-
ing children under the age of 19.
The motto of the Shrine Bowl game
is "Strong legs runs so that weak legs

There are three major sources, all of
which offer gin-clear water that is always
about 70-degrees as it flows up fin n 11 ic
springs and empties into the huge lake.
Silver Glenn boasts two huge.springs
that are very popular warm weather des-
tination for power-boaters and partygo-
ers but in the winter it belongs to more
natural types of % i ldli fe
The run is only about a half-mile
long, so the clear water spills well out
into the lake and onto sprawling grass
flats north and south of the mouth of
the creek. While these grass beds are
loaded with bass, you will also see a few
redfish in the deeper pockets and
stingrays in the shallows.
Juniper Run is the longest of the three
major spring-fed creeks. Much of its
upper reaches will be difficult to navigate
in anything more cumbersome than a
canoe except for the air boats, which are
common on Lake George. The big cove
into which it enters is a top spot to find
largemouth bass early in the year. This
area, in fact, has produced the 1st, 2nd, and
3rd place catches during professional bass
tournaments held in Palatka.
Salt Run is six miles of bass heaven
that winds through low grass marshes
and past oak-laden bluffs before reach-
ing Salt Run Cove in the lake's northwest
corner.
There may be a need for a traffic cop
in there on the 14th of this month, as that
will be the full moon, and it also happens
to fall on a Saturday. Many local tourna-
ment anglers will scramble for position to
get a shot at the numerous bedding bass
that lay in clear view over the sandy pock-
ets among the eelgrass.
It is considered good manners to re-
lease-these spawning fish if you catch
one. Tourna ment nglers have great in-
centive to protect the fish they catch.

than in other parts of the brackish river.
For instance, in the springs at Silver
Glen, striped bass can swarm so thickly
that they block out the sun for divers
snorkeling beneath them.
One good bet for simple fun fishing
is ladyfish in the deep holes near the
head of Salt Springs run. These "poor
man's tarpon" offer exciting aerial leaps
for those casting shiny, deep-running
baits on light line.
I was on Salt Run the other day and
there are packs of chunky pre-spawn bass
cruising in the pool close to the spring.
Shawn Michael, a fishing guide from
Palatka caught and released a big-bel-
lied beauty that weighed in at 11-
pounds, 9 ounces.
That is a big bass by any standards -
even in the "Bass Capital of the World".

Zoning laws can dictate improvements


Special to Clay Today

When many people first move into a new
home, visions of transforming their new
place into their own personal castle begin
to form.
But as exciting as such transformations
can be, before mapping out plans for a
moat and drawbridge, consider your
town's zoning laws, which can greatly
limit what you're legally allowed to do
with your property.
Zoning laws are designed to regulate
what a person can and can't do with their
property when it comes to building.
These govern building issues with respect
to height, use, bulk and density.
Zoning regulations can change quite
often, depending on how much a com-
munity is changing and developing. Gen-
erally, these laws won't prohibit you from
making renovations that are consistent
with your existing house.
For instance, if you live in a residen-
tial neighborhood and were hoping to
add a bedroom onto a house, the zoning
restrictions with regards to use shouldn't-
be a concern.
However, if you intend to add a room
such as a shed or a detached garage,
there could be existing laws that prohib-
it such add-ons.
Typically, the zoning laws you'll want
to pay most attention to are those ad-
dressing height and bulk. If you're hoping
to raise the roof of your home and add
upwards, this might be illegal, as it could
negatively affect the property value of
your neighbors by making their homes
seem less valuable.
Should such laws exist but you still
harbor the desire to build up, you can
apply for a variance, which can be a cost-
ly endeavor that may or may not work out
in the long run.
A variance is essentially an exception
to the zoning regulations, one that will
allow you to renovate as you choose re-
gardless of existing laws.
Getting your local zoning board to
grant you a variance, however, is no
small task.
If you're really set on making a homre
improvement that doesn't comply with*


zoning regulations, you'll likely have to
hire a lawyer and possibly even an archi-
tect or engineer to prove you need the
variance.
But even a lawyer and the testimony of
professionals do not guarantee your zon-
ing board will grant you a variance.
It's also important to note that you'll
need a variance should you decide to
change the use of your home. For in-
stance, if your home is defined as solely
residential but you choose to turn part of
your home into a doctor's office or even a
-law office, you won't be allowed to do so
without first being granted a variance
from the local zoning board.
Before building onto your property,
know the setback distance, or the man-
dated distance between the building area
and the property line. Such distances are
established for a number of reasons to
provide you and your neighbors with pri-
vacy so all parties don't feel as though
they're sitting in each other's laps when
in the privacy of their own homes. Such
regulations also exist to address accessi-
bility and ventilation concerns.
The setback distance should be in-
cluded on your property's survey plat,
which you should have received when
you purchased your home. Know the set-
back distance before doing add-ons of any
sort, as violations of the distance can re-
sult in you being forced to remove them
entirely, a costly mistake that can leave
you on the hook for several thousands of
dollars.
Another thing to consider is whether
or not you have any easements or deed
restrictions on your property, which can
negate your right to build any add-ons.
Again, if there are any of these on your
property, they should be listed on your
survey plat.
An easement is essentially a restriction
on your property that exists to provide
easy access to utilities or other services.
Typically, an easement is placed on a
property by the government, meaning
they are the lone people allowed to build
on a designated area.
This doesn't necessarily mean they

Ceilings become "fifth walls" thanks to design technique


Special to Clay Today

How many walls do you have in your bed-
. room or kitchen? If you quickly answered
'four' then you're missing one very im-'
portant area of the room the ceiling.
These days designers refer to the ceil-
ing as the 'fifth wall' of a room.
To bring attention to the ceiling and
make it connect with the overall style of
the room, many homeowners add decora-
tive crown mouldings or ceiling medal-
lions: But there's also another creative
idea to enhance your ceiling. Faux beams..
Made of lightweight urethane, the beams
come in both smooth white and wood--
grain styles.
"When people talk about .revolution-
ary-type products, Fypon's beams really
fit the category," said Don Zeman, host of
the nationally syndicated home-improve-
ment radio show Homefront with Don
Zeman. "Beams on a ceiling add drama
and character to any room. One of the
hottest trends today is to add beams to
cathedral ceilings in family rooms and
throughout kitchens to add architectural
flair and warmth to a setting."
Fypon beams are available in both
smooth white and woodgrain versions.

Home designers are now turning ceilings into "fifth walls" through the use of Fypon beams.


With continuous, beams running up to 20
feet long, the woodgrain versions are
available in cedar, white ash and red oak


textures that can be stained to resemble
real wood.
"The versatility of these beams is in-


credible," says Zeman, whose News from
the Homefront consumer tips runs na-
tionwide on television. "You can create a
coffered ceiling treatment by installing
them ina grid-like pattern that serves as
a visual accent in a room. This is usually
done in more formal rooms, like a dining
room, living room or home office.
"A more relaxed stile would be to use
the beams for horizontal placements stag-
gered every few feet on the ceiling. This
can help achieve a Craftsman, country or
cottage style in the room."
Urethane beams can be stained, paint-
ed or faux finished. Each beam is made
of durable urethane that resists rot,
decay, humidity and insects, making it
the ideal low-maintenance product for
the home.
"Real wood beams are expensive and
heavy, oftentimes requiring extra struc-
tural support in a home," says Zeman.
"The urethane beams are lighter in weight
and have a hollow interior, making them
easier to install. Creative homeowners can
match them up with moldings and deco-
rative corbels to personalize their ceiling
treatments."

Misunderstanding a home's value could lead to costly decisions


Special to Clay Today

Most Americans watching mortgage rates
rise are deciding that now is'the time to
buy or sell before it's too late.
Whether selling or just improving a
home's value, before you tap into your eq-
uity, here are five things experts suggest
you consider before calling your bank or
putting the 'for sale' sign on your lawn.
Make only renovations that count. Ex-
perts agree the right renovations, especially
bathrooms and kitchens, affect the mar-
ketability of a home. Bathrooms have be-
come a popular remodeling choice, and for
-good reason they have the highest rate of
return of any home addition or home re-
model. Real estate agents agree a gleaming
kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, cork

or hardwood flooring, stone countertop and
lots of cupboard space can sell a house the
instant a prospective buyer sees it.
Conversely, a cramped, ill-lit kitchen with
outdated linoleum and harvest gold appli-
ances might actually scare buyers away.
Improve what you can't renovate. If
you can't afford to renovate, update and
refresh key rooms instead. Replacing an
old countertop, repainting cupboards and
walls, and installing new door pulls and
lighting make big improvements to your
kitchen for a very modest price.
Similar touches increase the appeal of
older bathrooms, too. Fresh paint
,throughout your home is another low-
cost,. high-return project it makes
everything look cleaner and brighter, and
buyers love a house they won't have to re-
decorate immediately.
Maintain where you can. Depending
on the age of the house,.you can expect to
spend between one and three percent of
its value every year on maintenance and
repair. Your maintenance budget should
increase as your house ages: .o include
funds to replace major systems as re-
quired. Foundations and roofs are things
that are difficult to inspect, but in the long
run minor repairs can save about ten
times the cost of work necessary to re-
place or rebuild.

refresh a room and make it more inviting.


Don't over-improve. Before commit-

may be consigning sour house to an odd-

Consumers want homes to fit their lifestyles


Special to Clay Today

The booming real-estate market of recent
years has challenged builders to meet the
demand of consumers in the way of new
house construction.
What's more, builders have also been
given the task of producing not only more
homes, but ones that are affordable and
meet the evolving preferences of today's
home buyer. As a result, homes are being
built that cater to the lifestyles of the mod-
ern homeowner.
Drive around a new home develop-
ment and you're likely to discover one ob-
vious fact instantly: new homes are much
larger than their older counterparts. Ac-
cording to the U.S. Bureau of the Census,
square footage of homes built in 2004 was
nearly 140 percent greater than homes
built in 1950.
Although houses are bigger, yards may
be smaller or non-existent. Why? Home-
owners want large homes to house their
toys, but may have less interest in main-
taining outdoor living spaces. Here is a
look at some of the interior home trends.
In addition to offering larger square
footage, many of today's new homes are
designed to include useful living spaces.
As telecommuting becomes increasingly
popular in today's business environment,
dedicated home offices top the list of
wants from homebuyers, and these rooms
are wired for business.
A recent study by the Consumer Elec-
tronics Association said that approxi-
mately 60 percent of new homes include
a network of high-speed data, voice and
HDTV-capable wiring.
An open floor plan is also a common
theme among new construction. Buyers
are no longer interested in a formal dining
room and living room to act as an unused
showcase.
Rather, some builders have nixed the
living room in lieu of a great room, which
includes a spacious eat-in-kitchen that

rate home- theater systems.
Gone are the days when homeowners
would house electronics within an enter-
tainment center or behind closed doors.
Today's gadget lovers want their top-of-
the line products on display and in use.
With living .spaces adjacent to the
kitchen/eating area, family members can
congregate in the same area while enjoy-
ing their respective activities. These
spaces are also great for homeowners
who enjoy entertaining in their homes.
Elaborate laundry rooms have also
been added to new construction master
plans. Yet the jury is still out as to the pre-
ferred location of such laundry rooms.
Some homeowners prefer it on the ground
floor, off the kitchen, to act as a mudroom
or transition space into the body of the
home. Others want it upstairs or by the
bedrooms where the majority of dirty
laundry is generated.
Another room that has popped up as of
late is a private space for some family mem-


bers, like in-laws or caregivers. That is why
bedrooms off the kitchen or garage have be-
come common. And in regard to the garage:
it's bigger than in past years. Many new
garages are built two feet deeper so that
minivans and SUVs will fit comfortably.
With homes much larger, energy,
costs are likely a concern for homeown-
ers. That's why many builders are also
including 'smart home' features, equip-
ping their houses with technology that
controls home systems from one loca-
tion. Heating, security, cooling, audio
and other systems can be programmed,
helping owners use fewer resources.
These systems are also accessed via the
Web, so homeowners can turn the heat
down a notch anywhere they have ac-
cess to the Internet.
As homeowners' preferences continue
to evolve through the years, builders will
surely have an ear open to their wants
and needs to build homes that will offer
the most bang for their buck.

JACKSONVILLE They call it the 'Po ri
Packed'06 Van. And power packet I it is. I
does everything but come to you hi: i
you whistle.
Start with the transmission; coinpiIutc
controlled for ordinary driving, it has t :
capacity to hand operation ovei to I hr
driver whenhe/she wants more .'i Mn ol.
The engine has more power this \ rea 3.'1-
liter with 255 horsepower and piA itt\
much the same gas mileage --18 m i ks pel
gallon in the city, 25 highway.
Adjustable gas and brake pedals a,: : u n -
modate any driver, tall or not so tall.
Windows and seats are power o'erat led

tons. Unlike most vans, the glass In ih1 e
sliding doors lower just like the g lass in
the back doors of sedans. The ,N indo\ s
and the rear vents may be operated either
from the front or from where the win-
dows are located.
The radio as well as the speed control is
on the steering wheel. The sound system
has eight speakers distributed about the
vehicle, front to rear. An upgrade in-
cludes a multi-disc DVD in the dash. An
available MP3 system makes it possible to
download music.
The seven passenger van provides "stow
and go" seating with the third row folding
flat into the cargo deck.
Safety is a big issue with the new Kia van;
passengers are protected all around with
curtain air bags on both sides as well as


Pt, 1f' I .- .


Product Specialist Andre Rowe shows off the brand new Power Packed '06 Van


the usual font bags. Front air bags are
weight sensitive to accommodate passen-
gers of varying size as well as providing
for the safety of pets.
Because the sliding doors operate so eas-
ily, they are equipped with childproof
locks for additional security.
Reverse sensors alert the driver if an ob-
ject is approached too closely when
backing up.'
A tire monitor warns the driver if tire
pressure drops.
Comfort and convenience have not been
neglected, either. Larger seats offer more


comfort and three seat belts on the third
row provide safety for the middle pas-
senger.
A digital climate control regulates hie
tenpera tire in three zones It is poiible

There are even twoglo\e con ipairtnints,

RAY CARTER from page C-1
presence in Jacksonville in 1967 and
opened the present dealership at 6373
Blanding Blvd. in 1986. Ray CarterJr. grew
up in the automotive world; his firstjob was
washing cars for his father.
General Sales Manager Steve Kowalski
says that Ray Carter employees are very
much a family; they are treated that way
and feel a family closeness.
In addition, customers at Ray Carter are
treated as employees would have their
own families treated.
Ray Carter acquired the Kia franchise in
1997, not long after the Korean automo-
bile made its first appearance in Califor-
nia. Since then, says Kowalski, "Growth has
been incredible."
The manager says that the dealership en-
joys a really good repeat business. There
are customers, he says, whose families
have been returning for ten years. In fact,.
some customers who have moved away
come back to Ray Carter when they are
ready for a new car.
Counting repeats and referrals, Kowalski
says, accounts for as much as 30 percent of
the company's business. To accommodate
all customers, the sales floor is open daily
from 9a.m. to 8p.m. : ...._
Ray Carter services what they sell. The
service department is staffed with ASE
certified technicians. It is open Monday
through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Kia offers seven lines of automobiles at
present and will add five for a total of
12 by 2012. The manufacturer also is
working on a hybrid model but has not
established an introduction date as yet.
Kowalski describes the dealership as,
"friendly, low-key."
Employee longevity is the norm at Ray
Carter. The floor manager has been
with the company for six years, the fi-
nance manager for seven. Kowalski has
12 years of service to the dealership.
Ray Carter is a good citizen in the com-
munity; the dealership is a perennial
sponsor of athletic teams and cheer-
leaders. In addition, the company has
been recognized for its support of
Hubbard House, a refuge for endan-
gered women and children.
"It's a family atmosphere we have
here," Kowalski says. "Unlike corporate
giants, if you have a problem, you
come back to the same person. It's the
same face every time."
"We don't want the customer for just
one day," the manager says. "We want
them today and tomorrow and tomor-
row and..."

High tech elegance:2006 Buick Lucerne sedan


Marking the return of V8 power to
Buick passenger cars, the all-new full-
size Buick Lucerne is the nameplate's
most premium and elegant model --
incorporating themes of the brand's
new design direction. Replacing two
long time staples of the Buick passen-
ger car line-up -- the LeSabre and the
Park Avenue sedans, the Lucerne is
loaded with safety, comfort and con-
venience features normally found in a
high-end luxury car.
Manufactured in General Motors'
Hamtramck (Detroit), Mich., assembly
plant, the all-new Lucerne is available
in CX, CXL and CXS trim levels. Base
power for the new Buick is provided by
the always reliable 3800 3.8L Series III
V6 engine, while the top-of-the-line
trim level is equipped with the North-
star 4.6L V8. Buick is getting its own
version of the refined and accom-
plished Cadillac V8! Torque is com-
municated to the pavement through
the Hydra-Matic 4T65-E electronical-


ly controlled four-speed automatic for.
the V6, while the V8 is bolted to the
Hydra-Matic 4T80-E electronically
controlled four-speed automatic


transmission.
On the road, the big, beautiful Buick
equipped with the 3800 Series III V6
engine is smooth and responsive. A


competent, able performer at speed,
the Lucerne coddles driver and pas-
sengers in reassuring comfort. The
flagship Buick sedan offers drivers
four specifically tuned suspension
packages. The base model is
equipped with a standard FE-1 sus-
pension with 16-inch wheels, while
the CXL with the V6 engine benefit
from an F-41 suspension with a
slightly firmer calibration and com-
plimented with 17-inch wheels.
CXL V8 models feature firmer sus-
pension damping and GM's magnet-
ic assist steering system -- a first for
Buick. The top-of-the-line model
features 18-inch wheels and adds
Magnetic Ride Control paired with --
another first for Buick.
The foundation for the four-wheel
independent suspension hardware
starts with a stiff body structure.
MacPherson coil-over-spring struts,
twin-tube dampers, (monotube on
CXS) and a 29-mm tubular stabilizer

bar up front works with the multi-
link rear suspension with coil
springs, semi-trailing arm, airlift
control dampers and a 18-mm tubu-
lar stabilizer bar to keep the large
Lucerne firmly in control.
All Lucerne models benefit from
Buick's all-encompassing QuietTun-
ing engineering initiative, designed
to reduce or tune out unwanted
road and powertrain sound in order
to provide best-in-class levels of ride
quietness.
Inside the airy cabin, the Lucerne
boasts a complete range of comfort
and convenience features such as
heated/cooled front seats; factory-
installed remote vehicle start; ultra-
sonic rear parking assist;
rain-sensing windshield wiper sys-
tem; heated windshield washer fluid
system; nine-speaker 280-watt Har-
man Kardon audio system; six-disc
in-dash CD change with MP3 capa-
bility and DVD map navigation.
Interior appointments underscore
Buick's focus on elegance, comfort
and spaciousness. Premium materi-
als are complemented by tasteful
wood and chrome finishes and a
flowing, cross-car design theme that
is trimmer and sleeker than previ-
ous full-size Buick sedans. Rear leg
room is impressive while an addi-
tional two inches of front seat travel
XXXX makes the large Buick a very
hospitable place.

Golfers will enjoy a daytrip




to Disney World's 5 courses


Special to Clay Today

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.-- Walt Disney
World Resort has grown from a place of-
fering a couple afternoons of golfing fun
to a world-class golf-vacation destination
with five championship-caliber courses.
With a total of 99 holes on 775 acres of the
47-square-mile property, Walt Disney
World Resort is one of the largest golf re-
sorts in the country. In addition to scenic
and challenging courses, Disney's golf
program offers instruction and well-
equipped pro shops.
Combined with the vast offering of Walt
Disney World hotels and entertainment
meccas, the resort has earned a reputation
as one of the great golf havens in the en-
tire United States: one of 25 resorts earn-
ing a gold medal designation in the 2004
edition of Golf Magazine's biennial eval-
uation of America's greatest resorts;
among the Top 75 Golf Resorts in Amer-
ica as selected by Golf Digest in 2002; and
among the 75 Top Golf Resorts Around
the World honored by Cond6 Nast Trav-
eler in 2002.
The newest courses are Osprey Ridge and
Eagle Pines, introduced in 1992 and de-
signed b\ renowned golf course archi-
cs: r Toirn Fazio and Pete Dye, respectively.


motos courtesy of usney worna
As one of the two original Disney golf courses, the Magnolia opened in October 1971, and immedi-
ately became home for the Walt Disney World Golf Classic. In true PGA TOUR style, this beautifully man-
icured course has all the earmarks of a golfer's paradise: Elevated tees and greens, rolling terrain, and
a very special bunker on the sixth hole in the shape of you-know-who. The Joe Lee-designed course is
aptly named for its over 1,500 ir-,..- I.- trees:


hosts more than 400 other tournaments,
camps and clinics, and other outings, large
and small, each year. In 2002 and 2003 the
Disney courses hosted the Coca-
Cola/Tiger Woods Foundation Junior
Golf Clinic as the world's most recogniza-
ble player provided instruction and an ex-
hibition for young players from five cities.
And as for vacationers from all over the
world: Now more than ever, golf can be
thought of as the primary reason for visit-
ing the Walt Disney World Resort

Here's what's in store:

Osprey Ridge
Fazio's Osprey Ridge is a course un-
like any other. With uncharacteristical-
ly rolling Florida terrain, Osprey Ridge
is enjoyable for theresort guest as well as
the accomplished professional. Located
in the northern section of Disney's Eagle
Pines & Osprey Ridge Golf Club, Osprey
Ridge is 7,101 yards from the back tees.
From the middle tees it measures 6,680
yards, and from the forward tees it plays
to 5,402 yards. Fazio designed Osprey
Ridge with both the golfer and the envi-
ronment in mind. Having disturbed as
little vegetation as possible, the course
winds through dense vegetation, oak


Built in I1972, Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course stretches to 6,819 yards from the championship tees.
LBV is a tough challenge to many, as native foliage looms close to the narrow fairways. The course is some-
what more forgiving from the middle and forward tees which measure 6,268 and 5,1 76 yards, respectively.
The Lake Buena Vista course is located near Downtown Disney and Disney's Old Key West Resort.


The Fazio and Dye championship designs
join the Magnolia, Palm and Lake Buena
Vista courses as championship venues.
Rounding out Disney's 99 holes of golf is
Oak Trail, a family-play nine-hole walk-
ing course.
The Magnolia and Palm courses, located
on the northern portion of the Disney
property near Magic Kingdom, were de-
signed byJoe Lee and opened with Walt
DisneyWorld Resort in 1971. The follow-
ing year, Lee added the Lake Buena Vista
course, adjacent to the Downtown Disney
entertainment complex.
Walt Disney World Resort has hosted the
PGA TOUR for a fall Classic annually
since 1971. Currently, the event -- the
FUNAI Classic at Walt Disney World Re-
sort --is played qn the Magnolia and Palm
courses. Walt Disney WorldhRa Trt aldo
i '


forests and moss hammocks. Fazio him-
self considers this one of his best.

Eagle Pines
To the south of Osprey Ridge at Dis-
ney's Eagle Pines & Osprey Ridge Golf
Club, Dye's Eagle Pines is a stark contrast
to Fazio's creation. With relatively flat
terrain and a combination of traditional
grass rough, sand and pine straw await-
ing errant shots, Eagle Pines offers every
player a unique challenge. Eagle Pines is
a visually intimidating course, but a
complete joy to play. At 6,772 yards from
the back tees, 6,309 from the middle arid
4,838 from the forward, Eagle Pines is en-
joyed by all levels of competitors.

Four-wheel fashion statement:



GM's accessories business


By Kimatni D. Rawlins
Is it a fad or a way of life? Maybe a fash-
ion statement or the style of this cul-
ture? However it is paraphrased,
customizing "your whip" is as much a
way of life as dressing in the morning.
Individualsare particular and so should
the cars, trucks and SUVs they decide to
purchase and sport around town.
So what is it about simply customizing
a vehicle that has generated more
headlines than CNN's nightly news? It
sure is not anything new to the novice
or nowhere new to the streets. Stylish
rims have as much history as Hip Hop
and flipping whips goes back to the
early days. Yeah, ihe early days! And
now it seemingly looks though both
are being joined at the hip by media
and neophytes to the games as if they
were separated at some point in time.
Yet, even though music, music videos,
and music networks have brought the
ideology of customizing rides to the
forefront of mainstream culture,
mainstream culture has been in the
game long before referees were intro-
duced. Media organizations and car
companies alike need to understand
that by the time they catch up to a self-
proclaimed trend -- it is no longer a
trend anymore -- thus, no longer a
major issue. Just a way of life!
Therefore, the key is to understand the
market at the point the market is de-
veloping and setting off new styles,
habits, trends, manners, fashions, cus-
toms, etc. Grow with the culture and
the ending will be more fruitful for all.
Take for example plus-sized rims. The
standard on a full-size SUV is at least a
,2-2 inc. 1icNh,weI q GM offerr its
own 22s on the new 2007 Caddy Es-


calade when it arrives next year. The
benefit being that the customer can
roll the cost into the vehicle loan pay-
ment; any problems to the wheel are


warranted, and since the wheel and ve-
hicle are designed in tandem, the con-
sumer is guaranteed proper
performance, safety and reliability.
GM insures that wheel calibration,
ABS brakes and TPM (Tire Pressure
Monitoring) are on point. Even the
tires are fitted precisely to the wheel,
the vehicle, and its characteristics. It is
dn adyntagOGM cajIs,'"best' fit and
best fiincftion.


However, even after touring the GM
Accessory Design Studio in Michigan,
the wheel was not available to see. The
only drawback about going with a GM


rim over HREs or Rennens is the lim-
ited availability of "off the hook" de-
signs. Their first attempt at designing
an in-house wheel was as disappoint-
ing as watching RoyJones' legacy fall
to Antonio Tarver. Now, the Detroit
.native has taken an introspective look
at its accessories business and is listen-
ing to what the shops are saying and
'r h' reilr' e h 1 tc .' -" -' .


Said Nancy Philippart, executive di-
rector, GM Accessories, "the value
proposition of the aftermarket is va-
riety, and clearly the aftermarket is
pushing the trend. As an OEM
we have the ability of devel-
oping accessories to be avail-
able at time of purchase."
GM's accessories business
began about four years ago
with little marketing buzz.
Now they are offering a full
line of parts including
wheels, entertainment pack-
ages, spoilers, supplemental
storage configurations and
much more via their network
of dealers. Though the deal-
ers who have signed up repre-
sent a small percentage of all
GM dealers, every success
story has to start somewhere.
S The added value being that a
customer walks away with a
new car and the gear to go
with it, rather than research-
ing parts that may or may not
be available or even in their
Price range.

!ti:" "Chevy HHR customized by
Boston Acoustics. It featured
DV'D screens in the headrests
that actually tilt and can play separate
movies on each. In the rear was a drop
down screen large enough for a living
room. A little excessive for that type of
vehicle, but ultimately a cool showoff
for what can be done with an HHR.
GM will be displaying it at the 2005
SEMA Show in Vegas next month.

DAYTRIP from page C-8

Magnolia
As one of the two original Dis-
ney golf courses, the Magnolia opened
in October 1971, and immediately be-
came home for a PGA TOUR event. In
true PGA TOUR style, this beautifully
manicured course has all the earmarks
of a golfer's paradise: elevated tees and


greens, rolling terrain, and a very spe-
cial bunker on the sixth hole in the
shape of you-know-who. TheJoe Lee-
designed course is aptly named for its
over 1,500 magnolia trees.
Palm
The natural beauty of Florida wood-
lands makes the Palm not only a pleas-
ure to play but also one of Walt Disney


World's toughest. Rated one of Golf Di-
gest's "Top 25 Resort Courses," thisJoe
Lee course measures 7,015 yards from
the back tees, 6,461 from the middle and
5,414 from the front. With greens re-
cently rebuilt from the drainage basin
up, this course is perhaps better than
new. Save a sprinkle of pixie dust for No.
18 -- it's been rated as high as fourth
toughest on the PGA TOUR.
Lake Buena Vista
Built in 1972, this Joe Lee course
stretches to 6,829 yards from the cham-


pionship tees. LBV is a tough challenge
to many, as native foliage looms close to
the narrow fairways. The course is
somewhat more forgiving from the
middle and forward tees which measure
6,268 and 5,176 yards, respectively. The
Lake Buena Vista course is located near
Downtown Disney and Disney's Old Key
West Resort
Oak Trail
A par-36 executive golf course, per-
fect for a quick nine, practice, or the be-
ginning golfer.


Every year, a favorite draw for PGA TOUR golfers and fans is the Funai Classic at Walt Disney World
Resort. Walt Disney World is in Lake Buena Vista.


With 99 holes of quality golf, Walt Disney World Resort ranks among America's favorite golf resorts, and
as the only golf resort in the world that also offers four theme parks, two water parks and abundant
nightlife, it is the premier family golf resort on the planet.


Name: Disney World golf
courses
Why visit here?: OK, it's
not for everyone. But for
those of you who enjoy
hitting the links, this is one
of the best ways to
do it in Florida.
Best family spot: There's
lots to do, of course, but
Downtown Disney can
meet nearly all the
entertainment needs
of young and old.
Places to eat: Too many to
list, but that means
lots of choices.
Places to stay: Disney regu-
lars know one of the best
ways to find price-reduced
rooms is online, at places
like www.hotwire.com or
www.priceline.com.
Places to play: Again, tons
of places on the Disney
resort once you get
off the course.
Directions: Take 1-95 south
to 1-4, then go west to
Orlando and follow
the signage.

extensive amount of fiber optic

There will not be that issue with GM.
They make sure that the vehicle's com-

be safe at the plate because their war-

Auto companies are really beginning
to understand the culture of auto cus-

Chrysler, Ford and of course GM see
the light. Yet, they still have a lot of work

they unite full force with the shops and

Mr. Christopher Warren, Deputy
Executive Director and Chief Oper-
ating Officer of Florida's Turnpike
Enterprise, was featured at the
Chamber of Commerce's Economic
Development Quarterly luncheon
held on December 14th at the Or-
ange Park Kennel Club. His re-
sponsibilities include all operational
divisions within the Turnpike or-
ganization such as Planning and
Production, Highway Operations,
Toll Operations, Business Develop-
ment and Concession Management.
Mr. Warren's presentation includ-
ed an overview of Florida Turnpike
Enterprise's organization, funding
tolls and partnerships. He relayed
that at 460 miles, Florida's Turnpike
is the largest user-financed trans-
portation system in the state serv-
ing more than 1.6 million customers
a day. It is the fourth largest turn-
pike system in the nation but has
the distinction of having the highest
'bond rating. Moreover Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise is operated
like a business from within the
Florida Department of Transporta-


tion and is
charged with
maximizing ef-
ficiency and
maintaining ac-
countability.

Monthly Message from the President


Happy New Year! It's that time of
year again to make resolutions and
goals for yourself
and your business.
The holidays are
behind us and it .1
time to get back to
business. In 1972,* ;
Life Magazine pub- s,
lished a story
about the amazing
adventures of John Kellie Jo Kilberg
Goddard. When he
was 15, John's grandmother said, "if
only I had done that when I was
young...." Determined not to make
that statement at the end of his life,
John wrote out 127 goals for his life.
By the age of 47, he had accom-
plished 103 of his 127. Not all of us
have the same motivation as John;
however, setting a few goals can as-
sist you in meeting your expecta-
tions for the year.
In this edition of the Links, sev-
eral Chamber members have writ-
ten business articles in a. special
section "Focus on 2006" to assist
you in planning and setting goals for


the coming year. Be sure to read
their strategies and see what idea
may help you this year. Have you re-
viewed your business plan lately? If
not, take a few moments and see if
you are on track. If you are.on
track, congratulations! If you are
not on track, stop by the Chamber's
Small Business Resource Center
and take advantage of the research
tools there to enhance your busi-
ness techniques. We have many
Chamber members who are con-
sultants and are able to guide you
through the business maze as well
as the Small Business Development
Center's business specialist who is
in the Chamber office once a week.
Don't just sit there and wait for
someone else to accomplish your
business or personal goals.
Speaking of personal goals, it is
that time of year for the Chamber's
Annual Health Screening Program.
Registration dates are February 6-
March 17. New this year is the abil-
ity to register online at
http://www.claychamber.com. The
cost for the panel of test is skill only


$35 and $15 for the additional men
only screening for prostate cancer.
Make this one of your personal
goals for the year.
We have the ability to define our-
selves and our businesses. We do it
daily in the choices we make; we do
it annually in the resolutions and
the goals we set. The capability,
willingness and determination to
change are some of the most heart-
ening acts. Is there a business
you've dealt with that performed
above and beyond your expecta-
tions? Did someone work after
hours to complete your project?
Did someone go the extra mile to
get answers to your questions? I
would like to recognize those
Chambers members monthly in my
article. Just write a brief blurb
about how the Chamber business
you know has done something that
exceeded your expectations.
In addition, is there a good book
you've read lately that you feel
would benefit other Chamber mem-
bers? Past Chamber Chairman
David Robertson of Reynolds,


Smith and Hills recommends Good
to Great: Why Some Companies
Make the Leap by Jim Collins as
reading for any business or organi-
zation moving to the next level. The
book is now making it way around
our Chamber staff. I agree with Mr.
Robertson, there are many great
gems in this book that can help any
business. It's a bookyou'll highlight
and pull out from time to time for
refreshers. Let us know what you
are reading and let's share the
knowledge. Contact me at kjkil-
berg@claychamber.com with either
"Exceeding Expectations" or "What
Your Reading?"
We strive to giv-you the tools you
need to get there. What goals have
you set? What information will help
you achieve your goals? This month
make a goal to make 10 new con-
tacts as you are networking at the
Chamber Connection on January
26th at The Golf Club at Fleming Is-
land Plantation.
Remember to do business with
Chamber members. Join us as we
Focus on the Future.

Recent Tax Law Changes Bring Relief


for Some Taxpayers in 2006


By: Roy Wilson
Wilson's Accounting & Tax Service, Inc.
With tax season rapidly ap-
proaching, it's about time to start
gathering your tax information, and
going through all of those boxes of
receipts. Maybe you've been good
this year with your record keeping,
and you only have to print a P & L
from QuickBooks. But no matter
which method of accounting you
use, shoe box or software, it is im-
portant to keep abreast of all of the
new tax law changes that may affect
you this filing season. With that end
in mind, here are just a few of the
2005 changes that have been an-
nounced by the IRS recently.


1. IRS Certifies Ford and Mer-
cury Hybrid Vehicles for Clean-Fuel
Deduction
The model year 2006 Ford.Escape
Hybrid and the 2006 Mercury
Mariner Hybrid vehicles have been
certified as being eligible for the
clean-burning fuel deduction. An in-
dividual who purchases one of these
vehicles new during calendar year
2005 may claim a tax deduction of
up to $2,000 for tax year 2005.
2. IRS Increases Standard
Mileage Rate for Remainder of 2005
In an effort to alleviate the rise in
gasoline prices for taxpayers, the
standard mileage rate has been in-
creased. Beginning September 1


through December 31, the rates are
as follows:
48.5 cents per mile for all busi-
ness miles.
22 cents per mile for medical.
22 cents per mile for moving.
3. Automatic Six-Month Exten-
sion Available for Taxpayers
Beginning January 1, 2006, most
individuals and businesses will be
able to request a full six-month tax-
filing extension without a reason or
even a signature. Individuals will be
able to request an automatic six-
month extension of time to file, be-
ginning with 2005 returns due in
2006. This will replace the existing
procedure that only allowed an au-


tomatic extension of four months:
Extension procedures will also
be streamlined for business taxpay-
ers. The new regulations will make
a six-month extension available to
most non-corporate business tax-
payers, including partnerships and
trusts.
This is just a small sample of the
recent tax law changes, and if histo-
ry is any indication, there will be
more to come before the end of
2006.
For questions on these, or any
other tax related issues, feel free to

counting & Tax Service, Inc. at

How to Better Market Your Business


in The New Year


By: Tracey Martinez
Martinez Communications

In times of intense competition,
it is more important than ever to
effectively market your business by
identifying your differential advan-
tage.... and then communicating
that advantage to your target mar-
ket. How many choices do con-
sumers have when it comes to
buying a product or service that
you offer? Why should they choose
you? How do you stack up against
the competition? These are all
questions that help you determine
your differential advantage. If you
don't know what your differential
advantage is, make that your prior-
ity in early 2006.
The most important point to
your customer is "what's in it for
me"? If your advertising isn't ad-
dressing these concerns, you could


be wasting precious dollars.
Following are some steps you
can take to help get more from
your advertising efforts in 2006:
Identify your target market -
this may change and evolve with


your business and the times. Go
back and look at what your target
was when you started, and where
you are today. Does the message
you're currently sending clearly
"speak to" your current target mar-
ket?
Define your Differential Advan-
tage what do you offer that solves


the problems of your target mar-
ket? Is it what you think is impor-
tant... or what your customers
think is important? Your cus-
tomers are happy when you're solv-
ing their problems, not yours.


If you're not a low price leader in
your industry, be sure to highlight
the other features that make doing
business with you better than the
competition. Don't fall prey to
"one-upmanship" always follow-
ing the lead of your competition
and lowering prices accordingly.
Studies have shown that price is


usually not the first priority on the
consumer's list of benefits sought.
If appropriate for your business,
always create a call-to-action in
your message. Tell the consumer
what you want them to do, when
you want them to do it. Create ur-
gency for then to act immediately.
Finally, track your results. There
are way too many advertising op-
tions out there not to hold your ad-
vertising expenditures absolutely
accountable.
Having concisely defined your
target, differential advantage and
message; the only thing left to do is
"rake in. the .business", right?
Right! Apply the above to a strate-
gic marketing plan and you're off to
a great start in 2006.
For help with these and other
marketing issues in 2006, please
contact Martinez Communications
at 281-5400.

FOCUS ON 2006









Ensure Good Returns on Your


Investments in 2006


BV: Steve Goranson, MBA
Action International Business Coaching

Business is about making a prof-
it, so if your business strategies
aren't adding up to business profits,
don't do it, or do it differently.
To be a business, your business
must give a good return on invest-
ment plus a full wage for every hour
you spend working in your business.
You can then pay someone to do
your job and the business profits
are not affected.
The quote, 'if it doesn't add up,
don't do it,' can be applied in all
areas of your business. Advertising
is a prime example. If an ad runs
and does not get an immediate re-
sponse, there is no point in keeping
that ad running. It is wasting pre-
cious time and money. Change the
ad or where it is running.
Increasing your team must also


add up in dol-
lars. Perhaps a
business should
consider setting
training and op-
erating systems
in place so jun-
iors can be
hired to follow
the systems,
rather than hir-
ing seniors who
have the head
knowledge of
how it should
be done. Alter-
nately perhaps
the business
should look at
new machinery
or technology
instead of more
team members.
If you want


to buy a busi-
ness, the fig-
ures also must
add up or
have the poten-
tial to do so.
Make a list of
the criteria the
business must
fill and make
sure this list is
filled before
you commit
yourself. Many
people buy into
something be-
lieving it would
fulfill their
needs, to dis-
cover the fig-
ures were
inaccurate or
did not add up.
If you "are not


sure, get help.
A great idea when looking at a
business is to check the industry av-
erage and see how your business
compares. Given that four out of
five businesses go broke in the first
five years, you may want to be bet-
ter than average.
Finally the bottom line where
your figures must add up is in net
profit margin. To get this figure a
business must add all expenses, in-
cluding an appropriate wage for all
the hours you put in, plus interest
on the capital you put into the busi-
ness. This will give your real mar-
gins.
'If it doesn't add up, don't do it"
must be applied regularly. Don't wait
until the end of the financial year to
find if you have made a profit.
To learn more about making the
most of your business, call Steve
Goranson at (904) 730-0200.


Consider Setting Safety Goals in 2006


By: Jonathan "Jon" Haas
Haas Consulting

A business may set annual goals
for sales, inventory turns, new
clients, profit margin and things
measurable that affect the bottom
line. To meet those goals, action
plans are developed with responsi-
ble parties, deliverables, milestones
and metrics, and due dates.
Few businesses, however, set
goals (or the light goals) for safety.
A business may go a long time with-
out an accident and feel no need for
anything related to safety is needed
on a programmed, regular basis.
With that opinion, one thinks about
what's needed for safety only when
something has happened. That re-
active approach sends the message
to employees, "Management only
cares about safety when someone
gets hurt."
A pro-active, goal-oriented ap-
proach for safety programs can be
virtually cost-free, yet have great
benefit. Goals (and rewards)
should never be related to an injury
count, as that sends a wrong mes-
sage too.
Examples of low cost, pro-active
goals include:
One discussion a month on a
safety-related topic, which could in-
clude a review of hurricane pre-
paredness, fire evacuation routes


from the building and procedures,
office ergonomics, foul weather
driving tips, MSDS information,
etc.
One inspection a quarter of all
areas of the business, looking for
trip hazards, electrical issues, incor-
rect storage of combustibles,
blocked fire exits, etc.
Arranging for the American
Red Cross to teach first aid and
CPR at your location and inviting
family members of employees to
participate.
Even if your work environment
contains few obvious hazards, con-
sider a safe driver program for 2006
or some other off-the-job safety pro-
gram. Workers compensation in-
surance data shows that a very
large percentage of days away from
work is related to automobile in-
juries on the job.
Consider joining the National
Safety Council

free training programs download-
able from http://www.osha.gov.

Safety Engineers at

Employment Benefits Got You Down?


Here's an Alternative


BV: reborah Summers-Walsh

If you are a-business owner or
employee concerned about dwin-
dling employee benefits, you are
not alone. Of the 33,533 business
enterprises in Northeast Florida,
95% of them are small business
with 50 or fewer employees. Na-
tional statistics report that more
than 3.5 million companies have 10
employees or less and that, in 2004,
there was a 15% increase self-em-
ployed professionals.
As recently reported in the
Florida Times-Union, rising insur-
ance costs are causing many of
those small businesses to discon-
tinue their employee supplemental


health benefits. If your business is
facing this dilemma, you may want
to consider an alternative to pro-
viding insurance coverage.
Discount medical and/or sup-
plemental health plans are rising
in popularity because they offer an
affordable way for small business-
es to continue health benefits.
Similarly, if you own a business
that has not offered such benefits
before, a discount medical plan
may be the way to get your feet
wet. Providing a discount medical
plan may also help with the
longevity of employees who might
be less likely to leave a job if they
are happy with their health plan.
While discount plans don't pro-


vide the complete coverage that
insurance offers, they do offer a
discount price on medical, dental,
vision, prescription, and chiro-
practic services. The plan member
pays for healthcare services at a
discount price from healthcare
providers who have contracted
with a discount medical and/or
supplemental plan organization.
There is no deductible or co-pay,
just a discount cost to pay at the
time of service. Monthly cost for
the employer is much less than the
price of insurance premiums. Em-
ployee presentations can be
arranged to introduce new cover-
age. Pre-existing conditions are
always accepted which is good


news for those with a chronic dis-
ease or illness.
Billing is easy as well; it is done
by a monthly bill list. The em-
ployer can either delete an em-
ployee's name on the list or add a
new one as necessary. While there
may be a one-time registration fee,
that fee can often be waived when
a business joins. Coverage begins
as soon as the application is
processed.
Think you can't provide em-
ployee benefits? Discount med-
ical and/or supplemental plans
may have you thinking again. For
more information, contact Debo-
rah Summers-Walsh at (888) 762-
4147.

FOCUS ON 2006





By: Lonnie Loonan
Ho More Clutter
Getting organized is one of peo-
ples' top three New Year's resolu-
tions, and January is filled with
opportunities for getting and stay-
ing organized. Learn about the
"magic 8 organizing tools" and then
use one of the following holidays as
the focal point for your 2006 organ-
izing effort.
Get Organized Month: List the
three most troublesome areas of
disorganization in your office and
work toward getting control over
these areas one at a time. No back
sliding keep the first and second


areas cleared as you work on the
third.
New Year's Day: Instead of list-
ing your resolutions for the year, list
your accomplishments from 2005
and celebrate them. Then list those
things that you have not completed
and decide what to do about them
in 2006. If they are no longer appli-
cable in your life, celebrate by let-
ting them go.
Clean-Out-Your-Closet. Month:
Select supply closets/areas that you
would like spruced up and schedule
the time to do it. Making an ap-
pointment to do it will ensure that
you get it done. Perhaps items in
the closet can be donated to others,


also garnering you a tax deduction.
Be-On-Purpose Month: Identify
what would build the greatest bal-
ance. in your life in 2006 self care,
relationships, hobbies, volunteer
work, etc. Schedule the time
RIGHT NOW to add that balance
to your life.
Most importantly, you need the
right tools to stay organized. Fortu-
nately you probably already have
most of the necessary technology
and business tools to see you
through National Get Organized
Month and the whole year. The list
is short but essential to get and
keep ah office running at optimal ef-
ficiency. The magic 8 include: A file


management system that works for
everyone involved; a contact man-
agement system to control the
mounds of paperwork that besiege
most business owners; filing space
to hold all business documents; a
daily planner; a large wastebasket;
a shredder; a tickler file for to-do
items and current projects; and a
three-tiered IN, OUT and TO FILE
box.
With the right equipment and
stick-to-itiveness, you're on the
right path to getting organized,
staying organized, and taking your
business to the next level. For more
information, contact Lonnie Loon-
am at (904) 535-4553.


Is Your Business Prepared


in Case of a Fire?


By: Alexis Lloyd
American ire Extinguishers, Inc.


Learn CPR another first aid
and life-saving techniques.


If you need a fire extinguisher in
your business or in your home,


contact American Fire Extinguish-
ers, Inc at (904) 226-2978.


At the beginning of the year,
everyone should take some time
and think about fire safety and pre-
vention both at work and at home.
Additionally, a person should make
sure that fire protection systems are
in order, evacuation plans are in
place; and fire and disaster pre-
paredness plans are reviewed.
SA recent survey sponsored by
DuPont was quite interesting with
regard to fire safety in U.S. house-
holds. The survey was performed in
conjunction with the start of the
World Congress on Safety and
Health at Work in September: It re-
vealed that nearly half i46%) of
American families do not have an
evacuation or contingency plan in
case of fire or emergency. It also re-
vealed that nearly one-third 131.4%)
had not practiced or discussed any
type of plan with their families in the
past year. Moreover, 30% of the fam-
ilies surveyed DO NOT have a fire
extinguisher in their homes. The
DuPont survey also showed that
43.9% change their smoke detector
batteries only once a year. A trou-
bling 14% have never changed the
batteries. -The National Safety
Council recommends that smoke de-
tectors be tested monthly and that
batteries be changed twice a year.
According to FEMA's (the U.S.
Federal Emergency Management
Agency), two-thirds of fatal resi-
dence fires occur in homes that do
not have smoke alarms.
Fire protection and disaster pre-
paredness should be of great im-
portance for everyone, both at
home and at work, given the devas-
tation of hurricanes, fires and other
natural disasters.
We at American Fire Extinguish-
ers, Inc. encourage everyone to
make fire protection both at work
and home an integral part of your
lives. Every day should be consid-
ered part of Fire Prevention Month.
To help ensure home safety
around the clock, follow these sim-
ple tips:
Install smoke detectors on
every floor of your house.
Form an evacuation plan with
your family in case of a fire or. disaster.
Keep a properly working and
accessible fire extinguisher in your
home.
Keep a first aid kit in your home
and car.

Planning a Caribbean Cruise?



Don't Forget Your Passport!


By: Bill Aselage
CruiseOne of Fleming Island

If you don't have a passport and
plan on taking a cruise in the next
year or so, 2006 is the year for you to
finally get that passport. Effective
January 1, 2007, everyone, no mat-
ter what their age, will be required
to have a passport to reenter the
United States from the Caribbean,
Bermuda, Panama Canal and Cana-
da. Because it can take several
weeks to receive a passport, one
must start thinking now about ob-
taining the right documentation be-
fore taking a cruise in the future.
Until the change occurs on De-
cember 31, 2006, a cruiser 16 years
or older can use either a passport or
a raised-seal birth certificate and a
government issued picture ID. In-
dividuals under 16 years of age will
need an original raised seal birth


certificate. .
Applications -
for a passport -
can be ob-
tained from
your local post
office. There
are two appli-
cations avail-
able. The first
is for a person
who has had a
passport which
is due to expire
or has expired.
The second is
for a person
.who has never
had a passport.
If you've had a
passport in the
past, you need
to use form DS-82. You will need to
submit this form with your old pass-


.-.. port, two re-
cent 2x2 color
p. photographs
and a check for
the new pass-
port. If you
have never had
a passport, you
will need to use
form DS-11.
After complet-
ing the form,
you will need
to submit the
form with poof
of citizenship,
two recent 2x2
--color photos
and a check for
1 the cost of the
passport.
When present-
ing the application to the post office
agent you must appear in person


and have with you proof of identity.
To submit an application for a
child under the age of 14, either par-
ents or the child's guardian must
appear and present the following:
Evidence of the child's US
citizenship
Evidence of the child's relation-
ship to parents or guardian
Parental identification.
If only one parent appears, the
following must also be submitted:
The second parent's notarized
written statement consenting to
the issuance of the passport
Primary evidence of sole au-
thority or:a written statement made
under the penalty of perjury ex-
plaining the second parent's un-
availability.

ing Island at (904) 278-1105 or toll

Get Informed about End-of-Life



Care in 2006


By: Celeste Pattee
Community Hospice of Northeast Florida

Community Hospice of North-
east Florida advises-the best time to
learn about end-of-life care is now-
before an unexpected illness or
health crisis occurs. Making your
wishes known through completing
advance directives will help ensure
that they are honored. Additional-
S-ly, they will relieve your loved ones
of having to make difficult decisions
for you.
Advance directives are complet-
ed in advance of serious illness or in-
capacity and provide written
direction about how a person would
want medical decisions to be made.


In Florida, advance directives can
include three forms: a living will, a
health care surrogate or a durable
power of attorney. You may choose
to complete one, two or all three of
these documents.
A living will (as opposed to a legal
will, which provides direction for
disposal of personal property on or
after death) is a legal written state-
ment, signed when you are mental-
ly competent, .to instruct your
doctor whether you do or do not
want life-sustaining procedures if
you become terminally ill, have an
end-stage condition or are in a per-
sistent vegetative state. It spells out
what you want done if you cannot
communicate your wishes.


A health care surrogate is some-
one you designate in advance to
make medical decisions on your be-
half at the end of life or at any time
an injury or illness leaves you un-
able to communicate your own
wishes. This role is also referred to
as health care agent, health care
proxy and medical power of
attorney.
A durable power of attorney al-
lows you to name a person to han-
dle your legal, business and
property affairs should you become
unable to do so for yourself. This
person acts on your behalf accord-
ing to the specific responsibilities
and duties outlined in the docu-
ment, which may be very broad or


limited to specific acts. If you want
the person designated in your
durable power of attorney to make
medical decisions on your behalf,
the document must contain specif-
ic language to this effect. An attor-
ney should write the document and
it must be witnessed by two people
and notarized. The document is
legal until death or cancellation.
Standard forms for a living will
and designation of health care sur-
rogate are available online at
www.myfloridalegal.com, along with
additional information on advance
directives. Locally, you may visit
www.communityhospice.com for
more information on this topic and
other end-of-life care topics.


Get Your Employees Healthy in 2006


The Clay County Chamber of
Commerce is partnering with other
county organizations to help busi-
nesses have healthier workplaces in
2006. The Well County Well Work-
site initiative is a plan that will help
business owners improve the health
and well being of their employees.
The idea behind the program is to
help business owners cut down on
the number of sick days an employ-
ee may take, to create a climate
that fosters engaged employees,
and to be part of a team that is
committed to improving the health
of those who work in Clay County.
Why worksite health? To begin
with, the workplace is an ideal set-
ting for health promotion and dis-
ease prevention programs. After all,
the majority of Americans work. In
fact, of the nation's 203 million peo-
ple over the age of 16, 136 million are
employed in the US workforce. Add
to this the fact that Americans
spend a substantial amount of time
at work (nearing 50 hours per week)
and the workplace emerges as an

distressed, urban inner city;
rural area; Enterprise Zone or
Brownfield area;
whose grant proposals have
the greatest potential for, econom-
ic impact; ...................


ideal setting to address issues of
health and wellness. The philoso-
phy behind the Well Workplace is
that you use the worksite to edu-
cate employees and they in turn
bring the information to their
homes and educate their families
and friends.
In order for Clay County to be
considered a Well County, the coun-
ty needs to have 20% of its work-
force working in a designated Well
Worksite. What is a Well Worksite?
It's one that meets the Well County
of America (WELCOA) list of re-
quirement which include CEO sup-
port, a Wellness Committee or
designee and activities to improve
the health of employees. The
Chamber's Health Screening Pro-
gram is an example of this. Other
WELCOA requirements include
crafting an operations plan, choos-
ing the best way to implement the
plan, creating a supportive environ-
ment and evaluating outcomes.
The Clay County Chamber of
Commerce is developing a plan to


contribute in-kind and/or cash
matches.
The reimbursable training ex-
penses include:
instructors'/trainers' salaries
curriculum development
textbooks/'manuals I

The Area Beautification Com-

median landscaping project. We re-
ceived a donation from the North

project.
A small group spent the morning
of December 13th sprucing up two
medians on Kingsley Avenue in

mulch. It was a little chilly, but that
did not stop us from getting the
work done. Special thanks goes to

Class Tops Off Year


with Military Day


Members of Leadership Clay 2005 pose for a picture just outside the NAVAIR Depot.


Leadership Clay Class of 2005
wrapped up their year with Military
Day on December 6. The class
started the day at NAVAIR Depot
at NAS Jacksonville. The class was
briefed by Representatives from
NAVAIR Depot; US Marine Corps
Blount Island Command; Naval
Station Mayport and NAS Jax. The


class then got a tour of the Depot.
They got the chance to see first
hand how the planes there are com-
pletely taken apart, cleaned, re-
paired, parts completely remade on
site and reassembled just like new.
After lunch, the class learned
about and explored the Camp
Blanding Joint Training Center in


Clay County. Originally established
as a mobilization station for WWII,
Camp Blanding is now recognized
as a premier training center for Mil-
itary, Law Enforcement, and Civil-
ian Agencies. During the afternoon,
class members got the chance to
shoot M-16's during a simulation


exercise and received a tour of the
Military Operations In Urban Ter-
rain Assault Course at Camp Bland-
ing.

Bylee Sackett,
Chairman of Networking Opportunities Committee
The start of a new year. The
chance to fix what fell into disre-
pair...to turn around what-went
south...to pay spe-
cial attention to
those areas that
have been ignored.
It's an opportunity
to start fresh.
Like other success-
ful professionals, I .
see the beginning
of 2006 as an occa- Lee Sackett
sion to focus on
those areas that can help grow my
business. I've developed new sales
goals and identified areas I can im-
prove my advertising agency over
the next twelve months. But this
year, I did something different: I
also developed the following four
"Networking Resolutions".
Networking Resolution I: SHOW
UP
Okay, I know this sounds obvi-
ous, but you'd be amazed how
many folks think networking hap-
pens in their absence! If I want to
be a successful networker, I must
attend as many networking events
as possible. Additionally, to increase
the number of individuals I meet, it
would help if the events were at dif-
ferent times (breakfast, midday,"
after hours) and locations. Also,
whenever I go, I need to maximize
my time and efforts by arriving
early, focusing on my objectives.
and staying until the end.
Networking Resolution II: MEET
NEW PEOPLE
It's easy to talk to people you-
know. There's a comfort in connect-
ing with people who share your in-
terests. But good networkers are
always trying to expand their net-
work. My goal this year is to get to
know at least five individuals at
each event who I have never met
before. My goal is to find out who
they are, who they know, why
they're there, and how I can help
them.-
Networking Resolution III: HELP


OTHERS FIRST
Contrary to popular belief "help"
is not a four-letter word. For the
more you help others solve their
problems, the more they want to
help you reach your goals. Interest-
ed in talking to a prospect about
your product? Don't cold call them
or swing into a sales pitch at a
mixer...send them a new client. Be-
lieve me; they'll take your next call.
In 2006, I will try to discover how I
can help my contacts first before
'trying to help myself.
Networking Resolution IV: STAY
IN TOUCH
I'll let you in on a little secret...we
advertising guys are not always the
best communicators. Though I hate
to admit it, there have been times
when I've forgotten to follow up
with a new prospect after a meeting
or failed to connect with a new con-
tact after a networking event. This
year, I will send an email to each
new person I meet (assuming they
gave me a card with a cuwTent e-mail
address) and will hopefully help
them with their networking needs
or business challenges.
So are you ready to try out some
Networking Resolutions of your
own? Then grab your business
cards and head over to our FREE
networking event, Chamber Con-
nections Winter Wonderland. This
networking festival, held on Thurs-
day, January 26 from 5:15pmn -
7:15pm at The Golf Club of Fleming
Island, will bring together 150 -200
top business folks, free gourmet
food, great giveaways (including
Chamber Bucks), and a collection
of top notch sponsors offering ideas
and solutions to help your business
excel in 2006.
The Golf Club of Fleming Island
is located on US 17, just south of CR
220, and is convenient from Orange
Park, Middleburg, Green Cove
Springs, and (of course) Flemine Is-
land. Not a Chamber member but
interested in attending? Simply
email me by January 25 at rietwork-
inagdm-experts.com and we'll save
you a spot.
