Wake up, America,



we are at war


From Where I Sit


bhieemii', I@jr, 'giroipm,, )

The world is going up in flames lit by a
tiny spark from a tasteless cartoon.
Across Europe and Asia, terrorists,
who happen to be militant Muslims, are
using the cartoon as a pretext to burn,
murder and destroy.
Right here, at the onset of this column,
let me hasten to say that I do not consider
militant Muslims any more representa-
tive of Islam than I regard abortion clinic
bombers as representative of Christiani-
ty. Murder in the name of religion any
religion is wrong. That's an absolute.
Here in the Clay County community,
Muslim neighbors are going to their jobs,
running their businesses, sending their
kids to public school, participating in
community activities, and observing the
tenets and festivals of their faith. They are
doing so peacefully.
I am sure that many of these good peo-
ple are deeply offended by that ill-con-
sidered cartoon and probably with
justification. To satirize any religion can-
not be condoned. But are they taking to
the streets in Clay County? I don't see
them, do you?
In my 72 years on this planet, particu-
larly in more recent decades, I have seen
much that is offensive to nme and to other
Christians. Some militant groups have
risen up in arms, terrorized and attacked

others. Their actions simply have not
been acceptable to the wider Christian
community.
Other groups have resisted offensive
material and actions at the ballot box, in
the economic realm, in the world of pub-
lic opinion.
But is offense to religious sensibilities
the real reason for these terrorist attacks
around the world? Let recent history
speak for itself.
1979 Iran embassy hostages;
*1983- Beirut, Lebanon, embassy;
1983 Beirut, Lebanon, Marine
barracks;
*1988 Lockerbie, Scotland, Pan-Am
flight to New York;
1993 first New York World Trade
Center attack;
S1996 Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, Kho-
bar Towers military complex;
*1998 Nairobi, Kenya, US embassy;
1998 Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, US
embassy;
2000 Aden, Yemen, USS Cole;
2001 New York, World Trade Center;
2001- Washington, D. C., Pentagon.
According to one source, in each of
these cases the attackers were Muslim ter-
rorists.
So what is the agenda? It appears to be
nothing less than the destruction of
America, all things American and, in-
deed, all things non-Muslim. Even more,
it seems to be a strike for power power
for a small group of militants over, not
only non-Muslims, but Muslims as well.
Did Saddam Hussein flinch at mur-
dering his own people -Muslims that
stood in his way? No more than Hitler
flinched at murdering 5 -6 million Chris-
tians while trying to purge the world of
Jews. Raw power is raw power no matter
who is wielding it and heaven help any-
one that gets in the way.
It will take a united United States to re-
sist successfully this most recent onslaught
on our independence, our liberties, our
right to exist in the world. It will take more
than "political correctness," more than
wimpish buckling under to the shrill cries
of the weak hearted and weak minded.
It will take eternal vigilance. It will take
stiff resistance armed if necessary. It will
take rooting out terror wherever it stalks
in the world. Nothing less will do.
Edmund Burke had it right; 'All that is
necessary for evil to succeed is for good
men to do nothing."
Wake up, America, we are at war.

Growth is key issue in Keystone Heights' mayor race


By Greg Walsh, Managing Editor
gfilshl@jc-pgroirp.rom

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS -Just like for Clay
County overall, how to handle growth ap-
pears to be the overriding issue in the Key-
stone Heights race for mayor.
Three candidates Tony Brown, Mary
Lou Hildreth and Huntley Redfearn all
believe dealing with the residential and re-
tail expansion of Keystone Heights will be
the next mayor's top concern.
The town's registered voters will select
the winner of the two-year-term on Tues-
day, March 7. Early voting available from
9 a.m.- 5p.m. weekdays at the town hall is
available until March 3.
Redfearn is undoubtedly best known to
Keystone Heights residents. He has served
two terms on the council, the last one end-
ing in 2004, and lost a bid for mayor in 1999
in a runoff with Archie Griffin.
"We want to get a handle on the growth,"
Redfearn said. "We need to draw a line on the
commercial encroachment of this town."
Redfearn, who's lived in Keystone
Heights since 1944, said he's the best candi-
date because he knows how the Town Coun-
cil works and the issues it faces. Describing
himself as semi-retired, Redfearn said
being mayor would be a good fit for him.
"This is an enjoyment to me and I can the
right amount of devote time to it," he said.
'Teople know me and how I did things."
As mayor, Redfearn said he would also
enforce Roberts' Rules of Order during
council meetings, something he believes
was lacking in recent years.
He would also push to have the mayor's
seat, which is actually Council Seat 4, made
a position voted onby fellow council mem-
bers and not the public.
"I would like to be the last elected mayor
for Keystone Heights," Redfearn said.
He's also stressing his past experience
and integrity.

"You can buy anything with a MC but
you can't buy integrity," Redfearn said.
Redfearn, a longtime supporter of Key-
stone Heights Airport, said he would con-
sider annexing some areas to the town if
residents living there agreed.
Hildreth said Keystone Heights needs
managed growth and the council should
follow its 10-year comprehensive plan.
"Everywhere in Florida is experiencing
the problem," she said. "It's s not something
you can stop, you just have to control it."
However, she also wants the town that
she moved to three years ago to retain its
beauty.
"I support beautification of the down-
town area and the downtown historic dis-
trict. I think it's important to support the
history of Keystone Heights. It's a beautiful
city. We don't want huge changes," she said.
She is a strong believer that the town
council should consider annexation in
some areas.
"Annexation is a hot button topic
around here. Some are willing and some
are dead set against it outside the county,"
she said.
Hildreth said she believes the council
could begin with small areas to annex "and
use them as good example of what can be
accomplished," she said.

The council also needs to promote
the town's businesses to nearby areas,
like the lakes.
"If people go boating or fishing and they
buy bait or food or gas in Keystone Heights,
then we benefit from that," she said.
Hildreth said her job as caregiver for
her elderly mother also would allow her
adequate time to serve on the council.
Having change come to Keystone
Heights is not something everyone wants
but change can prove to be a positive thing,
she said.
"I think I can provide some fresh input
into the community," Hildreth said, "be-
cause of the fact that I've never been in po-
litical arena. I have no business interests or
ties or influences and that helps me make
objective decisions."
Hildreth, while acknowledging she has
not held elected office, pointed out she has
served as a volunteer with Florida Youth
Challenge Academy at Camp Blanding
and also served on the Heart of Florida Air
Show's VIP admissions committee.
Many Keystone Heights residents know
Brown from his previous service on the
Town Council.
Brown, who served as vice mayor when
he was on the council from 1996-99, opted
not to run again when it appeared he

would be moving. However, thejob didn't
work out and he came back to the area
within a few months.
He lost a 2002 bid for mayor.
Brown said his previous terms in office
gave him an opportunity "to meet differ-
ent state legislators and to lobby them for
Keystone Heights."
Controlling growth is key, he said, and
one way to do that is through annexation.
"In order for the city to control growth
coming closer to us, we have to annex those
areas to us," he said.
However, Brown stressed he did not sup-
port forced annexation.
Having adequate emergency medical
services is also an important issue for
Brown, who as mayor would lobby the
county for additional equipment and
manpower in Keystone Heights.
"The city could lobby the county to do
their part and with more equipment plus
staffing it," he said.
Past experience, especially on the Town
Council, is something voters should con-
sider when they go to vote, Brown said.
"I really feel a candidate for this position
should have set on some committees and
know the ins and outs of government and
dealing with the issues and concerns of the
people," Brown said.

World's troubles often touch

JEW ~sS seiwit.ilr for ltv',


The editor of a newspaper in another
state once told me: "This place is the center
of the universe," he said. "If anything hap-
pens in the world it seems like there's al-
ways going to be a connection here."
As a young reporter I naively believed
him, and even found a few examples of my
own to confirm the myth.
But having lived a few more years and
worked in a few more places- it's pretty clear
thatjust about anyplace with human beings
can claim to be "center of the universe."
Our lives are so diverse, our connec-
tions to each other so immense, that few
events on a national or international scale
can occur without you, dear reader, or
someone near you being directly or indi-
rectly affected.
Such is the case with the war in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
Clay County residents have already
been impacted by the war on terror. Clay
High School graduate Ian Manuel died in
Iraq in 2004 and Orange Park High
School's Bradley Crose was killed in
Afghanistan in 2002. Several more sol-
diers have returned home to Clay County
with wounds.
And for each of those brave young men
and women there are many more Clay
County residents continuing to serve their
country in Iraq and Afghanistan.
One of those who has served and wants
to go back is 21-year-old Specialist Christo-
pher Martin. A 2003 graduate of Orange
Park High, Martin's name came up recent-
ly when his ring was recovered from a
stolen truck.
Turns out the ring had been stolen
from his vehicle just months before he
joined the Army. He thought he'd never
get it back until his mother, Clay County
resident Cynthia Dowling, was contacted
by the Sheriff's Office that the ring had
been recovered.
But a phone call to Dowling revealed a
family dealing with a lot more than a high
school ring. Not only was her son training
at Fort Bragg, N.C., to become an M.P, but
her daughter, Pvt. Fallon Bailey, is there,
too, preparing for her first tour of duty in
Iraq with an avionics unit.
"Both believe in what they are doing
and believe it's the right thing to do," said
Dowling, a single mother. "You definitely

don't get much sleep while they are gone."
While some kids decide college or tech
school is for them, Martin was just as certain
the military was his thing. Dowling, the
daughter of a retired military man, said he
even tried to convince her to let himjoin be-
forehe turned 18 years old,butshe madehim
wait until he could legally sign on his own
"It was wartime and I was not going to
send my child," she said. "But he had that
planned and knew what he wanted to do."
And so he did. Now she describes what
her son faced while in Iraq, including hav-
ing his vehicle shot at, seeing fellow sol-
diers wounded or killed but thankfully not
being injured himself.
And she tells how this free-spirited
young man, whojust a few years ago was
roaming the halls of OPHS, has been
changed by the experience.
"It's matured him a lot," she said. "He
used to take walk on the wild side, but now
he's like a very serious person. When he was
home visiting, he never said a word about
getting up early having to work all day long.
"He's changed. He's matured. He's a dif-
ferent person."
Reached by cell phone in North Caroli-
na, Martin said he hasn't lost belief in the
mission and he wants people at home to
know there's another side to the story.
"(Everyday Americans) don't see every-
day things that we do to help people there,"
he said. "They don't see us getting thanked
by the Iraqis when we roll through down-
town Baghdad and throw out food, and
water, and MREs."
And how does he feel about his sister
going over there?
"Her being my little sister, I am a little,
worried for her," he said. "I have watched
out for her. But I think her Army training
will turn out for the best."
Your Clay County neighbors hope and
pray for that, too.

LETTERS from page A-4

Most of the little girls that attended with
us either have a father that is in Iraq or jail
orjust not around to be there for them on
the sweetest day of the year.
We ended up using this opportunity to
make this "girl's night out" and they had-
more fun than we possibly could've imag-
ined. I cannot express how much of a dif-
ference it made in not only our little girl's
lives but our own as we laughed so hard we
cried watching them dance and sing. It was
their night to shine. The people of MUMC
welcomed us as though we were family
and made us feel very much at home.
I recommend highly for anyone who
does not have a church home to visit and
feel the warmth that we felt. I would also
like to thank a young man, Clayton Nor-
ris, who came out to be the escort of all
these little girls as well as their mothers.
He truly is a young man on a very
blessed pathway to his future. May God
Bless all who were involved in making
this a night to remember!

County not treating
firefighters fairly

Dear Editor:

Clay County's fire and emergency sys-
tem is in desperate need of repair. The
county lacks the basic requirements of an
effective firefighting force. We don't
have enough fire stations, starting with
McRae, and response times are unaccept-
able in some areas of Clay Hill, Keystone


Heights, Middleburg and elsewhere.
We don't have enough firefighters,
starting at the top: Clay has no certified fire
marshal or county fire chief overseeing
the department. Almost all existing paid
fire stations are understaffed. The county's
only ladder truck isn't staffed at all.
Why is this happening? Not enough
money is being allocated to firefighting,
despite the utility tax the County Com-
mission imposed in part to help fund
public safety and other departments.
While other county staff receives com-
petitive salaries, firefighters are ignored.
A starting Clay County firefighter makes
a base salary of $8.77 an hour ($9.80 if
trained as a paramedic), more than $2 less
than a carpenter, and more than $7 less
than a Clay sheriff's deputy.
As a result, we are losing veteran fire-
fighters at an alarming rate. In the last five
years, we have lost more than 115 fire-
fighters, a turnover of 90 percent or more.
Clay County is now a training ground for
new firefighters who leave for Nassau, St.
John's and Duval. While the annual start-
ing minimum salary for a firefighter in
Clay County is $25,534, the annual salary
is $32,921 in St.John's, $31,700 in Duval
and $31,400 in Nassau County.
To make up the difference and pro-
vide adequately for their families, many
Clay firefighters work countless over-
time hours: 1,000 to 3,000 or more hours a
year. Exhausted from all that overtime,
they are less capable of making the split-
second decisions thejob demands.
Clay County firefighters are trying to
improve the system. They have pressed
for a fire chief, more and better-staffed
fire stations and competitive wages. They
have bargained in good faith with
lawyers hired by the county. They have
never failed to appear at a scheduled,


mutually agreed-upon meeting, or
walked out on a meeting in progress.
The county hired outside lawyers at
$345 an hour to resist the firefighter's ap-
peals. For their efforts, they have so far
earned $40,000 of your tax dollars. But
Clay County firefighters still have no con-
tract, no salary schedule, and no step plan
for pay raises. The lawyers delayed negoti-
ations by missing mutually scheduled
meetings, and, on one occasion, walked out
in the middle of a meeting in progress.
We ask Clay firefighters to do too
much with too little.
We ask them to expose themselves to
HIV, Hepatitis A, B, and C, toxic sub-
stances, HAZMAT materials, and radio-
logical matter.
We ask them to save our lives and struc-
tures on too little sleep, and too little pay.
Firefighters will keep doing what they
feel bound to do: protect the citizens of
Clay County.

Sometimes there won't be enough of
them. Or they'll be so new that they're un-
familiar with the equipment. Or they'll
be ending a 72-hour shift. Or they'll be
too far away.
There is a first step County Commis-
sioners can take, right now. They can treat
their firefighters with respect and fair-
ness, as partners, rather than as adver-
saries. That's what happened in another
county with a turnover problem: St.John's.
That county's leaders realized commis-
sioners and firefighters were on the same
side: they both wanted the best protection
for their county. And they got it.
Please join me in asking our County
Commissioners to support an improved
firefighting infrastructure, and compet-
itive wages for firefighters. They deserve
it. Clay County deserves it.

County Commission to hold strategic planning session


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
disr ,uaeiesseir@j)pgroujp.ro)m

GREEN COVE SPRINGS Clay County
Commissioners will hold a strategic plan-
ning with county staff on Wednesday,
March 1.
Commissioners and the staff who re-
port to them, the county manager, the
county attorney and the county auditor
will spend the entire day with a facilitator.


"This is the first time out for the coun-
ty," said County Manager Fritz Behring,
who introduced the idea of having such
a session to the counnissioners.
"The session is intended to produce an
internal, operational, strategic plan for the
commissioners and staff," said Behring.
The session, which is open to the pub-
lic, will be held at the Thrasher-Home
Center, 283 College Drive, in Orange Park.
Behring said he hopes the planning


session will provide a roadmap for the
coming year with staff knowing the ex-
pectations of the commission.
The public is invited to attend the ses-
sion but there will not be any opportuni-
ties for public involvement at the session.
The facilitator, Marilyn Crotty, is the
director of the Institute of Government
located at the University of Central Flori-
da in Orlando.
The institute provides technical assis-


tance to localgovernments throughout
the state, which includes training, citizen
surveys, and the facilitation of strategic
planning initiatives.
Behring said attempts were made to
have a facilitator from the University of
North Florida but there were none avail-
able for the March 1 date.
Behring said he has worked with Crot-
ty in the past And knows her to be a fine
facilitator.


GCS Council receives Health Needs Assessment


By Bob Henderson, Staff
bhenderson@jcpgroup.com .

GREEN COVE SPRINGS During the
first half of 2005 the Clay County Health
Department, under the direction of Ad-
ministrator Nancy Mills, conducted a se-
ries of meetings to assess the state of
health in the county. Tuesday, Feb. 21,
Mills presented a report to the Green
Cove Springs City Council.
It was an extensive survey with a cata-
loguing of key issues and recommenda-
tions that neatly encapsulate the mass of
data collected. Briefly, they are:
Reduce teen drug and alcohol abuse:
Partnering with the Clay Action Coali-
tion, the goal would be to develop com-
munity awareness targeting both teens
and parents. Grant funding and county


assistance would be sought as well as the
involvement of schools, law enforce-
ment, churches, health professional and


community groups. Police would be
strongly urged to enforce teen drinking
violations. Development of a teen/com-
munity center is strongly recommended.
Reduce obesity and enhance
chronic disease prevention through
development of worksite/school well-
ness programs, provision of safe recre-
ational activities/parks for children in
older, established neighborhoods and


provision of affordable fitness options
as well as transportation to and from
fitness centers.


Expand mental health services by
forming a mental health task force to de-
termine what services are available and
their capacity and educate providers and
the community as to available resources.
Improve access to health services in
west and south Clay County. This could
be accomplished by expanding existing
mobile health services. In addition, the
report recommends exploring the op-
portunity with Family Medical and Den-
tal Centers to open satellite federally
qualified community health centers in
the target areas.
The entire text of the survey and report
may be found on the Health Department's
web site at http;//www.doh.state.fl.us/chd-
clay/
The council also:


Gave "conceptual" approval to a pro-
posed site plan for a new Walgreen's drug
store at Orange and Idlewild Avenues.
The approval is not binding on the coun-
cil when the final plan comes before it
for approval but it does give the develop-
er a "comfort zone" so that plans may
move forward.
Approved a Minor Special Events
request from the Green Cove Springs
Merchants' Association to present the
annual Art in the Park on Saturday,
April 29. Art Yeaman of the association
said that the present event is an out-
growth of the Augusta Savage Day of a
few years ago and it is hoped that, as it
grows, it will resume its former name
and status. A Green Cove Springs native,
Savage attained some renown as a sculp-
tor in the 1920s in New York.
Approved a Minor Special Events
application for the Clay County Histori-
cal Society's annual Railroad Festival to
be held Saturday, March 4. The event
will take place at the Historical Triangle
encompassing the old courthouse, rail-
road station and jail. There will be ven-
dors, presentations and a Civil War
reenactment.

Orange Park moves ahead on road projects


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
dlsra(meu' ,er@jcj, roup.cown

ORANGE PARK Orange Park Council
members are getting progress on the road
projects they wanted but the prices to con-
struct those roads are coming in higher
than their original estimates.
Bids for five projects were received
Thursday, February 16 from 2 compa-
nies, Grimes Construction and Gibbs and
Register.
While the announcement of the bid
was sent to 15 firms, only seven firms
picked up bid packages, and then only two
submitted proposals.
The five projects were (1) North River
Road, (2) Holly Leaf Lane (plus an alter-
nate), (3) Clarke Court (in Clarke Park), (4)
Allen Mac Road, and the (5) Ash Street Baf-
fle Box.
Bids for the projects were submitted
separately so the firms could bid on one or
more of the projects.
Both firms bid on all of the projects.
Grimes Construction had a total bid price
of $1,346,645 for the five projects and
Gibbs & Register had a total bid price of
$1,212,500.
Gordon Smith, of CGS Engineering
Inc, who prepared the bid packages and
designed the projects told council mem-
bers he recommended awarding three of
the bids to Gibbs& Register.
Those projects were North River Road,
Allen Mac Court, and the Ash Street Baffle
Box. The total for those projects is $731,500.
Town ManagerJohn Bowles advised
council members to wait to award the bids
on the two remaining projects until the
next meeting.
By then the town will have received a
bid scheduled for opening on Thursday,
February 23, for the re-alignment work for
DeBarry and Gano.
That project is expected to exceed
$600,000.which would put the bids re-
ceived for all six projects at close to two mil-
lion dollars.
Bowles reminded the council the reason
for the overall increases in costs were a re-
sult of increases in the costs of construction

materials specifically.
Council members questioned the proj-
ect cost for the North River Road project
Bowles reminded the council the overall
project for River Road sidewalks, starting
at the south end of River Road, began
nearly ten years ago.
The work to be completed with this bid
will finish that project and will include
curbs, gutters and sidewalk installation..
The project will incorporate the inter-
sections ofJustin Circle and Eldridge Road
with River Road.
One of the major pieces of the project
will be the installation of the underground
treatment or "exfiltration" of water going
from the road to the St.John's River.
That work is being competed as a re-
quirement of the state Department of En-
vironmental Protection to address the
environmental issues of what is allowed
into the river..

road pulled up to accommodate the
changes but it will be replaced and re-
milled where necessary said Smith.
Council members were surprised to see
the cost of paving planned for Clarke Park.
The low bid for that project was $332,000.
Council members questioned the need for
paving the area.
Mayor Phyllis Renninger said she felt
that the.natural state of the driveway and
parking areas added to the attraction of
Clarke Park.
Council member Travis Cummings
told the council members however that the
greatest numbers of complaints they re-
ceive about Clarke Park are about the
amount of dust.
Smith said one option for that project
would be to reduce the paving to the drive-
way, enough paving for handicapped park
ing spaces, and a section to provide for
drainage of the paved areas to go to the re-
tention pond in the rear of the property.
A brief discussion was held concerning
deferring the bids but members agreed
prices would no doubt increase.
"If we re-bid we may not get the prices
we got in this bid, said Council member
SteveJones.
The council then voted to approve the
award of the three projects to Gibbs &
Register.
Because bid prices are valid for 30 days
from the bid opening, the council will con-
sider the remaining two projects along
with the DeBarry/Gano project at its meet-
ing on Thursday, March 14.
In other business the council reviewed
the pros and cons of appointing a special
magistrate to hear and rule on code viola-
tion issues instead of using a code en-
forcement board.
Council member Robert Standifer
asked for the information saying he had at-
tended two sessions of the special magis-
trate hearings held for Green Cove Springs.


Standifer said he was impressed with
the expediency of the decisions and the
ability of the magistrate to handle more
cases in the course of a vear.
Town Attorney Rob Bradley who acts as
the special magistrate for Green Cove
Springs said it would be a conflict for him to
provide the same services for Orange Park.
Currently, the Code Enforcement
Board has three to four hearings per.year
according to Bradley.
The most recent hearing involved a sign
issue on U.S. 17. The defendant in that case
is appealing the Code Enforcement
Board's denial to the court. That would also
be the process for an appeal should a spe-
cial magistrate hear the cases.
Standifer said he also felt that with a spe-
cial magistrate there would be a better
process established to bring cases to a con-
clusion and to follow through with decisions.
Renninger said she would not be in favor
of a special magistrate preferring to have a
citizen'sboard to hear the violations She said
she was uncomfortable having just one per-
son making a decision. To which Standifer
said he felt that having been on the Code En-
forcement Board that it was sometimes dif-
ficult for members to make the decision
being a part of the community
Standifer asked that members make an
attempt to attend one of the hearings in
Green Cove Springs. He then asked for the
issue to come back to the first meeting in
April for further discussion.
Bowles announced to the council that
anew traffic signal survey would be done
for three streets in Orange Park. The af-
fected streets are on the north side of Black
Creek Bridge, Holly Point, Holly Point
West and Elbow Street
Those streets were surveyed several
years ago but did not meet the warrants es-
tablished nationwide for traffic signals.

Family-owned Tailgaters offers sports bar setting


Clay Today staff
GREEN COVE SPRINGS It's been just
over a year since Tailgaters Sports Bar
opened.
But sometimes it seems like many peo-
ple don't know it's located in Cove Plaza just
south of the U.S. 17-State Road 16 intersec-
tion, says ownerJulie McMillin.
"One of our biggest problems is that we
are located in Cove Plaza in Green Cove
anda lotofpeopledon't knowweareout
there," said McMillin.
The thing that separates it from nmnay
other sports bars is that it's family owned,
she said.
"We try to make everyone who comes
into Tailgaters feel like family, too,"
McMillin said.
The bar is open Monday-Thursday, 2
p.m. to 2 am.; Friday-Saturday, 11a.m.-2 am.;
and Sunday, 1-10 p.m.
The bar also offers two big-screen TVs
as well as more than a dozen smaller TVs.
There's karaoke every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.,
and open microphone night (called Pick-
ers & Grinners) every Thursday at 7:30p.m.
A local band, Mr. Natural, offers live
music starting at 9:30 p.m. Friday and Sat-
urday at4 p.m. Sunday.
The bar also sells some "finger foods",
McMillin said.
"We have a full liquor bar and we are
smoker friendly," McMillin said. "Tail-
gaters is open seven days a week and has
something to offer everyone. If you
aren't into sports, you might enjoy play-
ing pool or a video game like Golden Tee

Dance center announces classes


By Trisha Cormeny, Staff

ORANGE PARK- Families
searching for a fun way to get
their little ones off the couch and
exercising now have a helping
hand thanks to North Florida
Dance Center.
"I'm trying to make this place
something different than every-
where else," said ownerJeanne Gl-
ogowski. "I wanted to offer
something that everyone could
benefit from."
And so inJune 2005 Glogowski
partnered with Mary Provitz to
offer the gymnasts of North Flori-
da Gymnastics a place where they
could receive specialized, low-cost
performance training as well as a
place where all dance forms could
come together as local artists,
adults and children learn about
the latest dance steps.
"It is refreshing to share dance
techniques with gymnasts and Teach
cheerleaders," said Glogowski. lywor

But NFDC isn't just about teaching
gymnasts to dance. With affiliations
with Douglas Anderson School of the


Arts, the Florida Dance Association,
FCCJ,JU, FSU, FloArts and MartaJack-
son School of Dance, Glogowski says her
days stay packed.
"I've taught all over the area," said Gl-
ogowski, who also mentioned her center
has no recital or costume fees.
Children are not the only pupils Glo-
gowski's staff works with. A strong be-
liever in physical fitness, Glogowski says
she offers classes such as adult ballet
and yogilates in the mornings to entice
busy parents to take a few moments out
of their days to devote to their own
physical health.
"This is just a great way for a physical
and emotional outlet," said Glogowski.
"There's just not one kind of dance we


have here. Itjust depends on someone's
personal preference and how they like
to move."
Tired of running after that rambunc-
tious three year old? Bring to the Parent-
Toddler fun dances Wednesday mornings,
says Glogowski.
"There just isn't one of these in Or-
ange Park," said Glogowski. "Our teach-
ers work closely with their students."
Classes cost $45 a month and a yearly
$40 registration fee is charged. Siblings
will receive discounts.
North Florida Dance Center, 4261

Great American Cleanup March 18.
The Great American Cleanup consists
of many events from March 1 through
April 30.
Clay County will kick off the "Cleanup"
March 18 from 8 a.m.- noon with the 11th
annual St.Johns River Celebration (SJRC),
the largest one-day cleanup of the St.
Johns River and its major tributaries. Vol-
unteers of any age are needed to assist in
the cleanup. Boaters are always needed to
get to locations that have been missed in


years past.
Students requiring community serv-
ice hours to satisfy scholarship require-
ments will receive double community

"It really has made me more outgoing,"
said Holesko about her work experience.
Holesko says her biggest influences
have been her mother Cheri and father
Andrew.
"They'vejust been through a lot," said
Holesko. "I wouldn't ask for any other par-
ents. They're perfect."
Holesko credits Fleming Island High
teacher Teresa Cornett with helping her
find her true calling in life: interior design.
"She's like a second mom to me," said
Holesko. "She's just one of those teachers I
just click with. Shejust has that spark. She's
a good teacher and I've learned so much
from her."
Interior design, says Holesko, runs in

So how does one balance the rigors of
sports with the demands of school? Not
easily, says Holesko.
"It's hard," she said. "I love soccer and
school so much Ijust find the time. I like
English a lot."
Holesko's advice to fellow students is to
step out of their comfort zones and see
what lies beyond their borders.
"Fleming Island's a small place and
when you get to leave, you get to meet
other people," said Holesko. "I was so excit-
ed when we moved down here, Ijust love it."

"The Chorus has been described as

provided boys-more than 900 of them to
date-with the training, motivation and

gram of choral music."

Take Stock in Children seeks

cyclists for scholarship ride


Special to Clay Today
Take Stock in Children, Florida's pre-
miere mentoring and scholarship pro-
gram is looking for cyclists to participate
in its first North Florida Scholarship
Bike Ride.
Cycling for Success will offer cyclists a
choice between a 50k or 100k route
through scenic back roads in Clay Count)y.
Registration for the event is $40 and
each rider is asked to raise a minimum
of $100 towards the purchase of a col-
lege scholarship for a low-income, at-
risk child.
Riders who register at About Bicycles,
175-9 Blanding Blvd., will receive a $5 dis-
count on their registration fee.
All funds raised, beyond the registra-
tion fee, by each cyclist will help pur-
chase scholarships for Take Stock in
Children students living in the partici-
pant's community.
Along the route, rest areas, SAG wag-
ons and sheriffs escorts will keep riders
rolling. Breakfast and lunch will also be

purple, black, pink or brown. In Clay
County, the purple and black corridors
are substantially the same as are the
brown and pink. The difference lies in
that the purple/black would cross the
St. Johns River north of Green Cove
Springs, the brown/pink south of the
city in the vicinity of the existing
Shands Bridge.
Getting to the river in Clay County has
been a bone of contention for residents
with some supporting the northern route
and some the southern.


provided to all riders.
Founded in 1995 in response to the
need for a scholarship program that pro-
vided more thanjust financial assistance
to recipients, Take Stock in Children pro-
vides scholarships, mentors, and hope
for a better future to Florida's most de-
serving children.
A public-private partnership, this
school-based mentoring organization
has affected the lives of more than 10,000
children.
Take Stock in Children has an 89 per-
cent success rate in keeping students, who
enter the program in the seventh grade,
in school and on track to high school
graduation. Additionally, 68 percent of
Take Stock in Children students attend
college within six months of graduation.
Take Stock in Children is providing a
solution to overcoming child poverty, ac-
ademic failure and youth crime.

participate in Cycling for Success call 1-
888-322-HOPE or email kmattox@take-
stockinchildren.com.


On the St.Johns side of the river, the
differences between the routes are more
pronounced. The northern, or pink, cor-
ridor would provide a northbound ac-
cess to Interstate 95 but none to the
south. To correct this, a second access was
added to the main corridor and dubbed
the black corridor.
The southern, or pink and brown cor-
ridors, as proposed, provide either a
northbound or a southbound access, but
not both. Another proposal that surfaced
in St.Johns County would combine both
of these into a "brink" corridor providing
access in both directions.

Scotch features return



Scottish Games return to Clay fairgrounds


Clay Today staff

GREEN COVE SPRINGS The North-
east Florida Scottish Highland Games re-
turn to various Clay County locations this
weekend.
The games, which offer a slice of both
modern and 17th century Scottish life, will
offer some new element this year, said
Richard Gordon, president of the game's
organizing committee.
This is the third year for the games to be
held at the Clay County fairgrounds, with
an estimated 5,000 people attending in
2005, Gordon said.
"It's all weather driven," said Gordon.
"On a clear day we could have over 7,000."
New events this year include:
A professor of Gaelic studies will teach
common Gaelic phrases.
"He'll also have song books so people
can learn to sing Gaelic songs," Gordon
said. "I did that in North Carolina and it was
a lot of fun.
A Scottish small pipes tent will inform
visitors about the smaller cousin of the
bagpipes.
"They are designed to be played indoors
can be accompanied by harper or a singer,"
Gordon said.
A golf chipping area will be set up
where contestants can try to make a hole-
in-one. Proceeds will go to the American
Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund.
Fiddlers and "harpers" will be compet-
ing for prizes in separate events.
Nine of the 14 breeds of Scottish dogs
willbe on display, as well as Scottish cats and


different breeds of cattle.
Also returning are the crowd favorites,
including the axe throwing and archery
areas, where visitors can give it a try. Or vis-
itors can stand back and watch the caber
tossing competition or border collie-shep-
herding demonstrations.
Another popular Scottish Games event
is the whiskey tasting set for Friday, Feb. 24,
at the Hilltop Restaurant in Orange Park.
"The whiskey tasting is operated by
Byron Cassell, who is a graduate of the
whiskey college in Scotland," Gordon said.
"It's a wonderful opportunity to taste a va-
riety of whiskeys and to learn how they
are each made. He even brings in roasted
barley from Scotland so you can taste the


before and after."
In all, about 80 performers put on the
games, along with 70 Scottish dancers and
12 pipe bands.
Gates open at 8 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25.
Those with tickets Saturday can attend a
Scottish evening of singing and food in
one of the fairground buildings and at-
tended by the day's performers.
Admission to the fairgrounds is $10 in
advance or $12 at the gate. Scottish and
American food and beverages will be sold
on the grounds.
Tickets to the whiskey tasting are $20 in
advance or $25 at the door, and are avail-
able by calling (904) 353-7511 or from the
Grotto Wine Bar in San Marco.
For more details, call (904) 725-5744 or

Locals participate in 30th anniversary



re-enactment of Battle of Olustee


By Tonya Davie, Correspondent
OLUSTEE The annual re-enactment of
the Battle of Olustee near Lake City last
week included some Clay County residents.
The Dion family of Middleburg is
just one family of the dedicated reen-
actors. Members of the 1st Clay County
Confederate Artillery, formed in 1989,
the Dions are currently 4 of about 20
active members.
The members of this group have par-
ticipated in events in Florida, Alabama,
Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina.
They have also.been at other events such


as the World of Nations and air shows at
NASJAX. They have started the last few
Memorial Day ceremonies at Camp
Blanding and then later the same day they
have been seen in Green Cove Springs.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans
(SCV) meet every second Thursday at the
Middleburg/Clay Hill library. During this
meeting, there is an overlap of subjects
covering the SCV and the re-enactors.
This is the 30th year for the re-enact-
ment, which marked the 142nd anniver-
sary of the Olustee battle.
On Feb. 20, 1864, 5,000 Union and

The Battle of Olustee was fought
about 15 miles east of Lake City and is also

School Board defers Elementary "X" in Lake Asbury


By Debbie Israel Messer, Staff
dir ra'lumesseirt jrc/pgro/uproin

-FLEMING ISLAND School board mem-
bers took action at their meeting on
Thursday, Feb. 16, to defer construction of
the Elementary "X", to be located in the
Lake Asbury area, until August 2009.
Board members were told that the
district's capital improvement plan had
to be amended due to the rising cost of
construction for the other projects in
the plan.
Current year projects, including the
construction of the Oakleaf K-8 School
and the Coppergate School located off
County Road 209 and C 220, have in-
creased in costs over and above what their
original estimates were by more than $1
million now.
Assistant Superintendent for Support
Services Mike Elliott said the choice was


difficult but the lack of funding required
a choice to be made.
Board member Carol Studdard in
speaking about the delay said," This is the
worst year that I can ever remember. We
have delayed this school, the school in
Oakleaf is backed up and we really need
five elementary schools on Fleming Is-
land. I am really concerned about kids
having to cross major streets."
Studdard said she was concerned that
the delays would act to erode the reputa-
tion of the Clay school district having
good schools.
The board did authorize district staff to
pursue purchase of the property. That
pursuit will include the preparation of an
environmental study, a survey of proper-
tyand a property line survey.
The property is owned by the Reinhold
Corp. and near County Road 218.
Elliott has indicated they wish to


purchase the property before property
values climb in the area as they have in
Other parts of the county.
Board members decided to turn down
any offer of free services by their former
communications consultant, David Voss.
The board voted to end the contract in
December 2005. Because Voss was not
contacted about the decision until late in
December he was paid an additional
month's retainer.
Voss was then asked by Board Chair
Carol Vallencourt to assemble.a list of
projects, which he would provide free of
cost based on having received the retainer.
.Among those free projects was the
establishment of a Superintendent's
Key Communicators Network. This
would have involved individuals out-
side of the district to assist with advis-
ing the board and superintendent of
community concerns.


Another free activity was to start a
school ambassadors program with two
people from each school. A third activity
would have been to update the district's
web page, started recently by district staff,
and then marketing the web site.
After a discussion of the listed items, in-
cluding others that would not be free but
with additional specific charges, board
members decided to take no action to have
further work, free or not, done by Voss.
Board members were asked by School
Attorney Bruce Bickner to authorize him
to represent the board's concern about
vandalism.
Bickner told the board he felt prosecu-
tion of criminals who have vandalized
school property should be dealt with
harshly by the courts.
He said recent juveniles seen by the
court have received only probation and
the requirement to pay fines of $10-12,000.


SCHOOL from page A-1


the commissioner's meeting.
At the commission meeting, Commis-
sioner Harold Rutledge asked commis-
sioners to discuss the issue of school
concurrency.
During the discussion, Elliot said Board
Chairman Glenn Lassiter told commis-
sioners the school district "needs to be
tougher on development."
The issue of how much authority the
school district has in order to be tougher
on development is not clear. The BCC
considers and makes all decisions in-
volving land use approvals in unincor-
porated areas.
The relationship between the BCC and
the school district is prescribed by an in-
terlocal agreement, which expires in Sep-
tember.
The inter-local agreement specifies
that the school district notify the county of
its capacity needs via a five-year plan and,
as the county considers development, the
county is to refer projects to the school dis-
trict for review and comment.
The school district provides comments
to the county that reflect the impacts each
development is expected to have on the
district's capacity.

School board member Carol Stud-
dard, the school board's representative
on thejoint development committee last
year, was concerned about the commis-
sion's discussion.
"What do we have to do, draw them a
picture?" asked Studdard. "What do they
think if we tell them our schools are over
capacity? Maybe we do need to remind
them that we have made an entree to them
more than once."
Elliott said the comment was an indica-
tion of the misunderstanding of the role
the school district has concerning the ap-
proval of new development.
"The non-DRI (Developments of Re-
gional Impact) development is hurting us
more than the DRI(s). We have always had
the ability to ask for exactions from
DRI(s)," saidElliott
Exactions are requirements for land or
funding according to Elliott
Last year the school district sent a letter
to the BCC asking to have a representative
on the Planning Commission who would
become a voting member rather than an
ad-hoc member representing the district.
The letter was later withdrawn on the
advice of commissioners, said Elliott.
Last year Gov.Jeb Bush signed SB 360
into law. The bill, known as the state's


1711 BLENDING BLVD. u
387-6527 t 5
MON TAT lOAM -' PM

SCHOOL BAND INSTRUMENTS S99 AND UP


growth management bill, outlines how
counties must address the impacts of
growth on infrastructure including
schools.
The bill also sets deadlines for estab-
lishing capacities for the infrastructure
and the report, which details the response
to the identified impacts.
The school district will be establishing
the capacities for schools within thedistrict
and identify their funding sources for
needed schools, both activities they per-
form currently.
That data will be used by the county, in
determining whether proposed develop-
ments will adversely impact the school dis-
trict's infrastructure.
The deadline set by the state for school
elements of the growth management plan
isJan. 1, 2008
In response to the recommendations
fiom Elliott, the board appointed school


board member Charles Van Zant to be-
come the liaison to the BCC.
Board chair Carol Vallencourt said the
first task for Van Zant will be reminding
the county commissioners that the school
board had sent a resolution to the county
inJuly 2005.
The resolution asked county commis-
sioners to consider using the "Martinez
Plan", a plan initiated by Senator Mel Mar-
tinez when he was a county commissioner
in Orange County. The plan, in effect es-
tablishes that developments are not ap-
proved until the infrastructure to support
the development is in place.
The plan has evolved to include having
the funding in place.
Board members agreed to review the
other recommendations at their workshop
to be held Thursday, March 2, at the
Teacher's In-Service Center at Fleming Is-
land High School.

Whiskey, 6 baseballs, 2 arrests

ORANGE PARK Six baseballs, a bot-
tle of Southern Comfort and a Clay
County Sheriff's Office speed trailer.
That's all two Orange Park men need-
ed to have some fun Saturday, Feb. 18.
That is before they were arrested on pos-
session of alcohol by a minor, a Sheriff's
Office arrest report says.
JonPaul Chartier, 18, and ThomasJ.
Lee, 19, were arrested
by Orange Park Po-
lice after an officer
saw them standing
near the trailer in the
2500 block of Park
Avenue about 2:30
a.m., the report says.
Curious why the
men were near the
trailer, he stopped to Thomas Lee
talk to them. The offi-
cer then smelled alco- n : ..
hol on their breaths
and found two drinks
containing whiskey
on top of the trailer,
the report says.
According to the
report, Chartier "ad-
mitted that he had
been throwing base- Jon Paul Chartier
balls at the trailer to clock the speed of
the ball when they threw it," the officer D.
Mills wrote in the report.
Police took the men back to their ve-
hicle, which was-parked nearby, and
found a bottle of Southern Comfort in
the front seat, the report says.
The trailer didn't appear to be any
worse for wear, said Orange Park Lt.
Mark Cornett.
"It had a couple of dents in it but we
couldn't attribute those to them because
people driving by throw things at it," he said.

Drug arrests mounting
GREEN COVE SPRINGS Three peo-
ple caught in a drug sting operation that
netted record amounts of illegal drugs
for Clay County will be sentenced Thurs-
day, March 23.
Clay County officials say their case is
just the latest in a string of drug arrests in
2005 by its county's Drug Task Force. Last
year, the task force:
Made 386 arrests
Conducted 637 drug investigations
Seized 244 pounds of cocaine
Seized-2,494 pounds of marijuana
Seized 354 grams of other dangerous
drugs, such as methamphetamines and
prescription pills.
Julio Rodriguez-Martinez andJose De-
Gracia were each convicted by Clay Coun-
tyjuries and a third defendant, Gladys
Villavicencio-Conde, pleaded guilty, the
Clay County Sheriff's Office said.
The trio faces 15-30 years in prison
when sentenced next month for traffick-
ing cocaine and conspiracy. When arrest-
ed, police found more than 6 pounds of
cocaine, the Sheriff's Office said.
Assistant State Attorney Rebecca
Zima said the task force's case against the
three defendants was solid and led to the
conviction.
"In this case, it was so well put together
by the detectives involved, we had no
problem prosecuting it at the local level,"
she said. "They had the suspects on
video tape and on audio tape. It was a
very strong case."
Narcotics-related investigations that
yielded the largest amount of seized
drugs in 2005 were those conducted as
task force or joint-effort initiatives, the
Sheriff's Office said. For example, the
Organized Crime Unit worked wi th the
Drug Enforcement Agency, the U.S.


Postal Service, Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office and the Orange Park and Green
Cove Springs police departments on var-
ious operations.

Stolen car arrest nets five
ORANGE PARK Police arrested five
Jacksonville residents Tuesday, Feb. 14, on
charges they were driving a car stolen
from Jacksonville.
Twojuveniles and three adults-were
charged with grand theft auto after their
arrests at the Orange Park Mall shortly
after 1 p.m., according to a Clay County
Sheriff's Office arrest report.
A witness who saw the suspects getting
out of the car in a parking lot called po-
lice after seeing one of the men throw a
wallet on the ground near the car, the
Sheriff's Office said.
Police waited for the men to leave the
mall and then attempted to stop the car.
However, the car driven by a 16-year-old
suspect initially refused to stop and got
around a police vehicle, the Sheriff's Of-
fice said, But another unit in the next
parking lot area got the vehicle to stop
and the suspects were arrested without
incident.
The juveniles, ages 16 and 17, were
charged and released to their parents.
The adults charged were James A.
Boykins, Kevin Tankersley and Kejuan
Cheeks, all 18 years old.
All five suspects are charged with
Grand Theft Auto. The two juveniles
were field booked and released to their
guardians. The three adult suspects were
booked into the Clay County Jail where
they remain at this hour.

Flu exercise held
GREEN COVE SPRINGS Clay
County Emergency Management offi-
cials, law enforcement and hospital rep-
resentatives were among those who
conducted a tabletop exercise last week to
formulate andpractice plans to address a
possible flu pandemic.
Capt. Bernita Bush, spokesperson for
the Clay County Fire Rescue, said the
possibility avian flu could threaten the
United States is very real and local offi-
cials stay in contact with federal health
officials about the situation. Avian flu
has not been reported in the United


* Control understory
plant competition.
* Minimize tree wounds
during harvests.


PREVENT


States and the number of cases world-
wide remains small.
However, if a pandemic struck it could
affect up to 30 percent of the general
population, Bush said, and impact public
services including law enforcement, hos-
pital services and food and fuel deliver-
ies. Schools and public buildings and
private businesses could potentially be
closed, and voluntary isolations could be
a possibility, she said.
Emergency Management and health
department officials stress residents
should have a year-round emergency
preparedness plan and provisions similar
to those recommended for hurricane
season, Bush said.
Among those participating in the
tabletop exercise were the state Depart-
ment of Health, Orange Park Medical
Center, Kindred, Red Cross, Salvation
Army, local law enforcement and other
community partners and county depart-
ment heads.

Car thief captured
ORANGE PARK A 16-year-oldJack-
sonville resident is behind bars after po-
lice say he stole a $38,000 SUV from an
Orange Park dealership and tried to out-
run deputies.
The youth was captured about 7 p.m..
Tuesday, Feb. 21, in Orange Park after he
fled Gordon Chevrolet, 1166 Blanding
Blvd., in the vehicle. However, two of the
dealership's employees saw him take the
vehicle and followed him, using a cell
phone to relay the location of the 2007
Chevy Tahoe to the Clay County Sheriff's
Office, according to an arrest report.
The youth drove down Blanding then
turned onto Londonerry Drive, but he
made a U-turn when he saw an ap-
proaching deputy's vehicle, the report
says. He drove the white Tahoe to the back
parking area of the Goodwill store,
jumped out, and began running. But he
was arrested without incident a short
time later, the report says.
During the brief chase the vehicle
struck a mailbox with its right front fender.
The youth, who was a passenger in a
vehicle parked at the dealership, told po-
lice he decided to steal the Taho when he
noticed the keys in the door as he sat
nearby, the report says.

Neighborhood Watch program gives helpful info


By Joe Chisholm, Correspondent
ORANGE PARK- Do you have the ability
to tell a fraud and scam from a golden op-
portunity? Do you destroy all of your old
bank statements and carefully watch you
credit card bills?
Seven hundred reports of fraud were
made in Clay County last year and the
Clay County Sheriff's Office took steps to
educate citizens with proper means of
protection Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the
quarterly Neighborhood Watch meeting.
The night consisted of a debriefing of
many advances being made by the Sher-
iff's Department and a presentation by
the White Collar Crime Unit on fraud
and deception.


Sheriff's DeputyJack Clanton opened
up the meeting with some news about the
Neighborhood watch and its meetings. The
last meeting was held at Ridgeview High
School where their drama program per-
formed a memorial show for fallen sheriffs.
"It was a great success," said Clanton.
"We are planning another one, sometime
in May."
Clanton later introduced Sheriff Rick
Beseler, who began with a word of en-
couragement. During the Christmas sea-
son there were hundreds of arrests, and
crime was kept close to the margin of
zero. Even the smallest of crimes are
being stopped short.
"When petty crimes take hold," said
Beseler, "felony crimes will follow."

Sheriff Rick Beseler leads a question and answer session during the quarterly Neigh-
borhood Watch meeting Feb. 22. The next meeting is scheduled for May.


In 2005 there were 25,000 citations
written in Clay County. The Sheriff's Of-
fice is starting to crack down on traffic vi-
olations.
Beseler outlined a new program that
has been put in effect at many of the
large intersections in Clay County to
catch red light running drivers. Now, dis-
guised as homeless people or surveyors,
deputies are sitting on the corners of big
intersections ready to catch those who
decide to gun it.
It has been quite successful, said Be-
seler. On last Tuesday alone, 80 tickets
were handed out at the intersection of
Blanding and Kingsley. This new pro-
gram, called Special Traffic Enforcement
Program (STEP), is bound to make citi-
zens cruising the streets think twice be-
fore running a red light.
After he concluded his speech, Besel-
er introduced the White Collar Crime
Unit, who gave a presentation of fraud
and financial crimes.

CRC from page A-1
said the decision to delay hearings was "a
good idea" in light of voting to hire Watts.
Watts, who has worked' with several
Florida counties on their charter amend-
ment commissions, would be paid $200 per
hour plus per diem for travel expenses in-
stead of a lump-sum payment of about
$5,000, the group agreed.
Member Karen Lake, who made the
motion to hire Watts, said the group "runs
the perceived risk" of having a conflict of
interest by continuing to use County At-
torney Mark Scruby, who works for the
Board of County Commissioners.
Member Mary Cooperman described
Scruby as a close personal friend, but she
said the CRC needed to make the change.
"W'e have to hire an outside attorney,"
Cooperman said. "Watts is totally knowl-
edgeable. It's in our best interest to hire

Member Roy Lyons added that while
Scrub)' is very credible he feels an outside
attorney "would be very good."
In addition to handling the wording of
ballot questions, Watts should also attend
all meetings to answer questions, the group
said. Member Rob Bradley will handle ne-
gotiating the final contract with Watts.
Cummings said Scruby indicated to
him it would be "prudent" for the CRC to
hire outside counsel.
"Mr. Scruby also told me that he wants
someone else to look over our constitu-
tional amendments," Cummings said.
Hiring Watts means he will have to re-
view all the CRC's proposed ballot initia-
tives, including those previously approved.
The proposed ballot initiatives are:

Commissioners that restricts their contact.

Homestead

Exemption

deadline nears

Special to Clay Today

Wayne G. Weeks, Clay County
property appraiser, announces that,
"Ever) person who has legal or eq-
uitable title to real property in Clay
County, Fla., resides thereon, and in
good faith makes it his/her perma-
nent residence onJan. 1, is eligible to
apply for homestead exemption."
The initial application should be
made in person, on or before March
1. Failure to apply by March 1 con-
stitutes a waiver of the exemption
privilege for that taxing year. If one
qualifies and desires to apply for
the homestead exemption, they
should do so at the Property Ap-
praiser's Office.
First-time homeowners must
bring their deed, and if married,
provide both spouses' social securi-
ty numbers when they apply. If the
applicant is a mobile homeowner,
in addition to deed and social secu-
rity numbers, also bring the titles)
or vehicle registrations) for the mo-
bile home. Applications will also be
accepted at the clerk's Orange Park
Branch Office, 1518 Park Ave.
Once the initial application has
been filed and granted, the home-
owner will be placed on the auto-
matic renewal system each year.
As long as nothing changes, the
exemption will be automatically re-
newed on Jan. 1. In January, a re-
newal notice will be mailed
identifying the property.
If the property owner still lives
in this home and qualifies for the
exemption, nothing need be done;
just keep the card as receipt and
continue to enjoy the benefit of
lower taxes.
For more information, contact
the clerk's office at 284-6305 or the
Orange Park Branch at 278-0803.


Expand the County Commission from
five to seven members, with the two new
members being selected at-large instead of
single-member districts like they are now;
Require Commissioners adopt an
ethics policy. The proposal, approved at the
Feb. 16 meeting, included discussion on
whether the CRC should craft the policy.
But the group ultimately decided to let the
commissioners determine exactly what
the policy would say and how it would be
enforced
Cummings agreed with member Bill
Garrison that if the CRC completes its
work by May, it would have time to present
its formal ballot questions to Commission-
ers by the end ofJuly.
In other action the commission:
Tabled a discussion on how many
names citizens groups would be required
to collect on petitions seeking to place
charter amendments on the ballot; Mem-
ber.Ralph Puckhaber said a statistical
analysis of past elections shows a fair num-
ber would be 7 percent of registered voters,
not 10 percent as is required now.
Puckhaber agreed to bring his
analysis to the next meeting for further
discussion.
Tabled a discussion concerning con-
stitutional officers. Member Mary Coop-
erman said she would like to see the
Sheriff's Office brought under the um-
brella of a public safety supervisor and she
criticized Sheriff Rick Beseler's handling
of the department personnel and finances.
Set the next meeting for Thursday,
March 2, in the Tax Collector's Office at the
County Administration Building in Green
Cove Springs. It begins at 7 p.m.
Discussed, but took no action, on
whether it would propose a charter
amendment that would have one of the
two at-large members run as commission
"chairman." Some members feel a chair-
man serving a four-)ear term could set
goals and implement their vision easier
than the present system, in which com-
missioners select a chairman for a one-
year tern.
Heard Barbara Davidson, who was in-
volved in the committee that created the
count's clharer in the late 1980s. say the
CRC should strongly consider what voters
would likely approve. She questioned the
idea of adding two commission seats, say-
ing past commissions considered the idea
but dismissed it because two more people
added little to the decision-making process
but would cost voters more money in
salary and benefits.
Discussed, but took no action, on a
proposal by member Rob Bradley that


the commission write a final report, titled
"A Vision for Clay County Government in
the 21st Century." The report would out-
line the commission's ballot initiative, the
reasoning behind each recommendation

Ridgeview cultivates College corner


By Kelly J. Stigliano, Correspondent
ORANGE PARK-Ridgeview Baptist
Church sits on 15 acres on the corner of
College Ave. and Blanding Blvd. After
desiring to purchase an adjacent -acre
lot for 21 years, they stepped out in faith
to build.
Three weeks after the decided to build,
the owner of that bordering lot ap-
proached them to sell. To Ridgeview ad-
ministration and congregants, that marked


God's "seal of approval" on their plans.
They completed a successful capital
gift campaign to raise funds for the
building project and will renew it in five
years. Those pledges and gifts, combined
with regular ministry funds, will make
the $5.3 million Worship Center and Fel-
lowship Plaza complex a reality.
The Worship Center will be multi-
functional with a movable stage for dra-
mas and creative events. It will allow
Ridgeview Baptist to continue serving


their community in a more accommo-
dating way. Ridgeview High School often
uses their facilities because the school has
no auditorium.

The Worship Center will be on the
corner of the property and will go 55 feet
high, featuring a mezzanine level. The
plan is to build up instead of out, to save
the land for future expansion and park-
ing. Ridgeview currently has two services
on Sunday morning and may go to three.
The new Worship Center will seat 1,560
people, allowing for just one Sunday
morning service.
The plans show their baseball field
being moved to a different corner of the
property. The Fellowship Plaza will join
the Worship Center and come within 10
feet of the existing buildings.
The buildings in the Fellowship Plaza
will also be multi-functional, hosting
their current ministries. Dinners and
seminars will be held there. It will have an

from the kitchen. The new facilities will
also have many restrooms.
Ridgeview's First Class Learning Cen-
ter, educating students from age one
through four, will remain in the existing
buildings.
The oldest building, currently serving
as the Administrative Building, will be re-
moved. They will lease office space else-
where during the building process.
"There are preparations to make," said
Senior Pastor, Dr. Hal Fletcher. "We have
to bury a power line and tear down the
old building. We'll start the first of March
moving everything out of the Adminis-
trative Building to tear it down. We'll
probably start in March building the new
parking lot, too."
Ridgeview Baptist Church's theme is
"Helping People Connect" and they feel
their location is choice for doing just that
Dr. Fletcher said their building was de-
signed around their theme.
Their ministries prove their intent.
Meeting the needs of the community,
they have weekly or monthly meetings
for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), Di-
vorce Care,JoyJubilee (senior citizen fel-
lowship), AWANA ( for pre-schoolers
through 6th graders), No Limit (youth
ministry), Children's Worship and Bible
Study, Men's and Women's Ministries, The
Wire (college and career fellowship), and
soon to come, a Businessmen's Ministry.
They hope to complete the new facili-
ties in 10 to 12 months' time.
"The Lord has been doing really amaz-
ing things," Fletcher said. "Our goal is
reaching out to help families. Our church
is in a strategic position to help families,
and we are focused on doing that."

Networking Group helps businesses grow


By Amy Dimmock, Correspondent
FLEMING ISLAND- In today's world of
high powered ads and creative market-
ing, several local businesses still utilize a
form of marketing that has been around
for years: word-of-mouth.
One of three such groups sponsored
by the Clay County Chamber of Com-
merce, First Coast Networking of Flem-
ing Island meets weekly to discuss what's
happening with their businesses. Mem-
bers share ideas and products as well as
information on upcoming promotional
opportunities and local events all with
the goal of helping each other locate new
customers.
First Coast Networking is open to new
members who are dedicated to providing
quality products and proven services at
competitive prices. To be a member, there
are no dues, but 80 percent attendance at
weekly meetings is required. Generally
only one representative of a business
type is allowed. Members are welcome
from large companies or single owner,
home-based businesses.
Current members represent a diverse
group of local businesses, such as Hair by
Lee and Friends, Primerica Financial Ser-
vices, Travel Experience, Americom Real-
ty, Inc., Stubby Stutches Embroidery and
screen Printing, Mary Kay Cosmetics,
Ameriplan USA, 1st Choice Mortgage
Group, Nancy Goodwin, Licensed Massage
Therapist, and League &Jesperson, PA.
Members carry business cards for
themselves and group members. When-

ever they come upon someone needing a
specific product or service someone in
the group offers, they share the group
member's information.
Referrals and leads generated from
the group have created various business
opportunities for the members. In fact,
several members have needed and uti-
lized the services of other members.
For example, Kimberly Stubbs, owner
of Stubby Stitches Custom Embroidery
and Design, has helped members get cus-
tom shirts made.


"I get a lot of leads from the group,"
she said. "I have a product that's good
for this."
Stubbs mentioned another benefit
of the group. While recently attending
a Chamber of Commerce meeting un-
intentionally without her business
cards, she saw several members of the
networking group and was able to get
some of her cards from them to share at
the meeting.
Many members first learned of the
group from other members. A year ago
when Stubbs moved to the area, she pur-
chased a home from Realtor Joyce
Roberts of Americom Realty, Inc.
Roberts told her of the networking
group and Stubbs immediately joined.
"There's a social element to the group.
We get settled in with our coffee," said Lee

Studio promises to

do more than just

take photographs

By Trisha Cormeny, Staff
tco 'it rmeny@jpc)group1m).to'i

FLEMING ISLAND- Kirk Kief's studio
isn't quite what one would expect to find
on the island.
In fact, Kief Photography is unlike its
counterparts in many ways.
"I wanted to try and find someplace
that had an exclusive feel to it," said the
30-year photographer best known for
his newborn and high school graduate
photos.
Kief, who opened his shop on 2245
Plantation Center Drive a little over a
year ago, says he enjoys riding his Harley
to work every morning.
"It makes for a nice ride," said the for-
mer Palatka photographer. "Business is
better up here because there's a larger
market."
Specializing in capturing a newborn's
first weeks in this world, Kief will waive
the sitting fee and create a complete
package that includes photos with mom,
dad and the little one.
"A lot of families don't get the baby's
photograph at that age, but it's impor-
tant to," said Kief, who compiles the
photo session in a slideshow set to ap-
propriate music. "My goal is to get the
dad to cry during the slideshow. It's
something most of us have never expe-
rienced before."
Not interested in the formal senior
pictures the school takes? Take a look at
Kiefs palette where black and white com-
bines with a student's interest to form a
variety of options Kief promises will be
sure to please.
For instance, Kief told of one gentle-
man who loved playing poker. He incor-

"I want to...let...the kids know they
don't have to go fojust the school pho-
tographer. They can do some pretty, cool
stuff," said the Fuji and Kodak Awards
winner. "My creative juices are flowing. I
do things a little differently here."
It's a wonder Kief has the time to do
anything but capture family moments,
but he does. As a member of several pro-
fessional photographer's associations,
including secretary of the Board of
Directors for Florida Professional


Photographers Incorporates, Kief

DAPS: The new generation of publishing

By J02(SW) Bill Lamrned the facility's desktop publishing equip-a ..0.M.. .E : .- amm m .--


JaxA ir Veins


Electronic publishing has doomed the
traditional printing press to extinction. At
NASJacksonville, this is no exception at
the Document Automation and Produc-
tion Service (DAPS), located in Building
721 on McFarland Street. Providing every-
thing from technical manuals on CD-
ROM to retirement ceremony programs,


ment and proficient graphic designers cre-
ate many useful products. The facility
serves the Department of Defense (DoD) in
addition to other federal agencies.
When you open a technical manual or
CD-ROM full of engineering diagrams,
you may be benefiting from the diligent
hands and minds of DAPS.

More than 30 million American women are menopausal. More are approaching
this personal transition, during which various forms of hormone
therapy become necessary to help treat symptoms such as hot flashes,
weight gain, moodiness and sleep disturbances.


Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
Therapy may be an effective solution for those
women who want another option to synthetic hor-
mone therapy. Compounding pharmacists can
prepare treatments using plant-derived hormones

said Bill Barrett, director of DAPS.
The reward for cutting-edge skill is a
plethora of products that serve the gov-
ernment when bulky volumes aren't the
best solution.
Constantly looking for ways to save
space aboard ships, the Navy instantly ap-
preciates the benefit of using CD-ROMs or
DVDs instead of bulky technical manuals.

facility is responsible for producing, prices
are cheaper than what commercial ven-

ager for DAPS. Blueprints and schematic di-
agrams don't remain unchanged forever
and DAPS reduces costs whenever update
pages are required.
"I have seen 100 page changes for one
single manual here at DAPS," said Delores
Lehr, an automated printing specialist.
"Try going out to Kinkos and getting a bet-
ter price for that many changes. It'sjust not
going to happen."
Besides offering paper and CD-ROM
products, DAPS maintains Web sites and

"We have computer servers on-site in
addition to people with Web design and
maintenance skills," said customer account
manager Dan Gacek. "Some groups re-
quest that the Navy Marine Corps Intranet
(NMCI) create or maintain websites for
their needs. But we have the advantage of
being a Defense Logistics Agency and
enjoy fewer restrictions on what we can
help a customer create."
His organization also performs mainte-
nance on copier machines.
"Many commands take it upon them-
selves to buy a printer and maintain it on
their own. Some, however, have contracts
with us to maintain their copiers for them,"
Gacek said. According to Gacek, the 18 South-
east region offices care for 3,000 copiers.
Orders are delivered via Federal Ex-
press or courier, or can be picked up. Any-

Benefit barbecue brings

out hundreds
Greg Martin, left, and Stacie Mathewson check on the chicken they are cook-
ing at a benefit barbecue in Green Cove Springs Wednesday, Feb. 22. The cook-
out was held to raise funds to help in the treatment of Tyler Laymon, 12, who
was diagnosed with leukemia in December. During the serving period, cars
and vans were pulling in and loading up with large numbers of dinners. Lake
Asbury Junior High, Laymon's school, bought 48. Shortly after, Clay High School
picked up 51 dinners to take back to the faculty lounge. Although he must be
carefully protected from even the slightest infection, Laymon was on hand to
witness the efforts of so many people lending a helping hand in his young life.

Clay finishes fifth, while
Ridgeview's Dipaul and OP's
Malta grab second place
By Horace Davis, Staff
hd(v'is@jcpgroIp.com
LAKELAND- Power, focus and determi-
nation werejust a few a words used sever-
al times during the wrestling state finals
held in Lakeland, FL. Feb. 16 -18 where 17
area grapplers took to the mat looking to
bring home the coveted medal.
Clay High took nine wrestlers to the fi-
nals after winning their seventh straight
regional and looked to win another team
title just as they did in 2004.
Things looked good for Clay entering
the Friday afternoon semifinals session
as they only trailedJupiter Christian and
Suwannee 58.50 to 57.00 points and were
primed for the run.
However, promise quickly turned to
disappointment for the Blue Devils start-
ing with the 103-pound match with Gar-
rett Soileau who was pinned by
Suwannee's Merritt Burrus and the domi-
no effect began.

Orange Park sophomore Jason Malta (bottom) reversed this move to defeat Goleman's Eddy Fuentes 7-3.


Following the Soileau pin, two-time
state winner Cory Baudendistel faced
Palmetto Ridge's Richie Dehnz and was
also pinned and had to settle for a fifth
place finish at 130-pounds.
Sean Wetherill, Steven Joseph and
Andy Milburn also lost decisions in the
119,135 and 140-pound matches andjust


that quick Clay fell from the fringes of
first place down to fifth place.
"This was a tough round," said Clay
CoachJim Reape.
"After Garrett (Soileau) lost I think we
may have folded but we'll regroup and
come back tomorrow with a strong finish.
Our guys came with a lot of hope and


promise, we did not see this one coming,
but with a top five finish we will keep our
streak alive," he added.
Following the disappointing semifinal
round for Clay, the story quickly turned to
the championship round where Clay

Panthers fail to advance, fall to Bishop Kenny


FILE PHOTO
Charles Gilbert led Ridgeview with 11 points but it
was not enough to lead the Panthers past Bishop
Kenny.


By Charlie Rector, Correspondent

JACKSONVILLE -John A. Bald-
win Athletic Center was a full
house and the site of the Region
1-4A basketball playoff game
that would eliminate either the
(19-7) Ridgeview Panthers or host
(24-4) Bishop Kenny Crusaders.
The Panthers from
Ridgeview had entered the con-
test looking for their first re-
gional playoff victory after
failing the previous two-years
even though they were district
champs.
Panthers head coach Rob
Feltner said prior to game, "We
will not show as many defenses
.tonight, we'll go back to the ba-
sics against a solid team such as
Bishop Kenny." Feltner did not
feel that his team's quickness
and height advantage would
make a great difference against
the Crusaders due to their good
perimeter shooting.
Kenny's coach of thirty-seven
yearsJoe Pichardo remarked be-
fore the contest, "We have not
matched up with many oppo-
nents in either quickness or


height this season, we just play as a team
and it has worked for us."
The Crusaders jumped out to a quick,
but unexpected 9-0 lead as the Panthers
looked tight and unorganized on offense
until they broke the ice with a basket by
senior Charles Gilbert.
Both teams alternated man-to-man
and tight zone defenses during the first
half as Kenny held an eight to ten point
lead throughout.
As the buzzer ended the half, Kenny
enjoyed a ten-point bulge at 27-17.
The Panthers came to the court in the
second half with a different look and at-
titude, determined not to go down easy.
They kept Kenny confused as the third
quarter progressed, Ridgeview played a
pressure half court man-to-man causing
twelve Crusader turnovers, which al-
lowed the Panthers to climb back to
within 34-32 to begin the final period of
one teams season.
The final eight minutes brought out
different defensive looks from the Pan-
thers, that coach Feltner had not planned
on showing.
Ridgeview went to full court press and
pulled to within 41-40 when Lee Gal-
loway and Charles Gilbert hit back-to-
back three pointers with less than 3:00
left on the clock.


However, Crusader guard Brandon
Walker answered with a three-pointer
with 2:41 to play and this made the clock
the Panthers worse enemy.
They began forcing shots, missing
inside and out, committing intention-
al fouls in order to stop the clock, how-
ever the Crusaders free throw
shooting proved to much for the Pan-
thers as Ross Preston, Colin Mulhol-
land, Drew Wolf, and Brandon Walker
sank fourteen consecutive, paving the
way to Bishop Kenny's 58-48 victory
thus ending the season for the
Ridgeview team.
Coach Feltner felt his team played
with all their heart but the outside shoot-
ing of Crusaders was just too strong on
that given night. Both he and assistant
EugeneJenkins said the back breaker
came at the end of the third quarter
when Ross Preston hit a three pointer
keeping their team from going into the
final period with a lead."
In the season ending game only two
Panthers reached double figures, in
Gilbert who had 11 and guard Evan
Reece's 10 points.
Joe Everett added 9, while Aundar-
rious Cowell, Lee Galloway andJamal
Godette chipped in with eight, six and
four respectively.


Blue Devils season ends in 57-48 loss to Lecanto


Special from Dawn Reiss
St. Petersbi rg Times

LECANTO Senior guard Mychal
Nichols proudly pumped a fake WWE
heavyweight belt into the air as the crowd
hoisted him and his teammate Eddie
Buckley on fans' shoulders.
For the third time in Lecanto's history
the Panthers are headed to the region
semifinals with a 57-48 win against Clay.
But it wasn't without a fight.
After Clay (19-8) scored the opening
bucket, Lecanto went on a 10-0 run,
churning out 19 points in the first quar-
ter to the Blue Devils' 13. Nichols and
Buckley led the charge, each scoring six.
Helped by its ability to platoon and
reset with an entirely new lineup, Lecan-
to (22-4) capitalized on its small size and
quickness by pressing and storing 3-


pointers on rested legs. Drastically dif-
ferent, Clay's five starters were all 6-feet
or better, led by senior center 6-foot-8,
270-pound Blake Elrod, who picked up a
quick first technical halfway into the
first quarter.
Elrod re-entered in the second, and
helped Clay take a lead by scoring eight
of his 10 points with a presence inside
coupled with a Clarence Hampshire
hoop and senior forward 6-foot-5 Wanick
Cime's free throw, which gave the Blue
Devils a 30-28 lead at halftime.
"We told our guys at halftime, keep
pushing the issue, make them play fast,"
Lecanto coach Chris Nichols said. "I think
they survived the first run, they survived
one in the second, but that third one, they
had nothing for it."
That run led to a 10-point lead after
three.


Clay's coach
Gary Gartin
said, "We knew
they had good
perimeter shoot-
ers but we
looked to exploit
them with our
size and it
worked early on.
However, we
may have wore
down towards
the end and they
had the comfort
of playing at
home. But this
loss does not di-
minish a fine
season we put to-
gether."

Sign-up Saturday for new Fleming

Island Little League Baseball


ByA nmyDimmock, Correspondent

FLEMING ISLAND -Youth baseball play-
ers in Fleming Island now have the oppor-
tunity to play Little League Baseball in a
newly formed league expected to run
from late next month through early June.
Registration for the new league will
be held Sat., Feb 25 from 10:00 a.m. to
1:00 p.m. at Box Seats Restaurant in the
Village Square Shopping Center across
from Fleming Island High School.
Children ages 6 to 12 as of April 30,
2006, are eligible to play. To sign up, bring
proof of residency, medical insurance in-
formation and a copy of the child's birth
certificate. Registration is $90 per player.
Basic skills assessment will also be
held Sat., Feb. 25 at Thunderbolt Park
(across from the Fleming Island Li-
brary). Players age 8 and under will be
assessed at 2:00 p.m., and assessment
for ages 9 12 will be held at 3:30 p.m.
Players should bring their glove and
appropriate footwear.
According to Tom Helock, one of the
new local league's founders, Fleming Is-
land Little League is chartered with the
national organization based in
Williamsport, PA. Fleming Island's
league was formed to serve local fami-
lies living between Doctor's Lake and


the Black Creek Bridge on US-17, and
east of the railroad tracks on CR-220.
Games will be played at Paterson Ele-
mentary, Thunderbolt Park and Arm-
strong Park. Helock expects teams to play
twice a week, with one weeknight game
and a Saturday morning game likely.
"We have enough now for eight teams;
we'rehopingtogetl0-12teams" saidHelock.
Players 8 and under will be machine
or coach pitched. More advanced teams
will be kid-pitched.
"Depending on the range of ages and
skills, ideally we'd like to have a minor
and major league," said Helock. Players
of all skill levels are welcome and chil-
dren under age 8 with advanced skills
may be eligible to play in the older or
more advanced league.
Helock and Mike Collins have been
planning this league for over a year. Pre-
viously involved with a league outside of
Fleming Island, "We noticed 80% of the
kids were from Fleming Island; there
was such an unmet need," said Helock.
Helock said there are many opportuni-
ties for volunteers as well as players. "We're
always looking for volunteers, with the
proper background checks, of course."

St. Johns Mixed Classic opens tennis season


Special to Clay Today

ORANGE PARK Area tennis teams
from Fleming Island, Clay, Ridgeview
and St. Johns Country Day School
kicked off the tennis season with the
annual St. Johns Mixed Classic last


week at the Country Club of Orange
Park.
The unique format that pits a male
or female player against five different
levels of play, the winner of this year's
tournament was Fleming Island and St.
Johns finished as runner-up.


BRONCOS from page B-1


back by Pasco's keeperJose Hernandez.
But with 10:22 left in the match Mc-
Donald found himself open again ap-
proaching the net, he faked Hernandez
out of the net and popped the ball over
his head for the score and the'hat trick'.
Brent O'Keefe added the final tally
on a pass from Devin Tully to set up the
finals match withJensen Beach.
"We capitalized on their keeper. He
was overly aggressive, we got him to
come out and we had the guys to score.
We always play hard when we are down a
goal so when they took that early lead we
were ready to play harder. The field
helped us tonight, it's the biggest field
we've ever played on so we could stretch
out the defenders," said Goodwin.
Even following the loss in the finals,
the Broncos were gracious in defeat
and were very thankful for the run to
the finals.
"It was great to play this well in the
state finals. Our season has been so long.
I'm just overjoyed at this moment," said


sophomore Cody Spanbauer.
Senior forward Michael Mc Donald
who some thought may not play be-
cause of the severe collision during the
playoffs said prior to the champi-
onship game.
"This is just dream to play this well in
lhe finals. I was nervous but once the
game started, you concentrate and for-
get about everything else."
"We've had a tough week with the in-
jury but to get a hat trick and assist in a
big game like this, it's really special. I'm
very grateful to my teammates and
coaches just to get here," he added.
Senior goalkeeper Michael Gibbs
summed it all up stating,"I've got every-
one to thank, my coaches, my team-
mates and our fans. Nobody gets here
alone, we all played out hearts out and
showed what we have. I thank God
everyday that I'm on this team; it's the
best bunch of kids anyone could ever
play soccer with and this was the great-
est game I've ever played in my career.
Both teams played hard but they capi-
talized and we couldn't."

ORANGE PARK A host of family friends
and teammates gathered in the Raider-
Dome on Tuesday, Feb.14 to witness and
congratulate soccer player Samantha Warr
on signing a soccer scholarship with Fla-
gler College in St. Augustine.
Warr, who was a standout midfielder
for the Lady Raider team said, "I am so
excited, this is a dream come true".
She also played club soccer for Clay
County United and Coach Rodrigo Rojas
who was unable to attend the signing but
sent a letter wishing Warr best of wishes.
"Samantha has truly been a joy to
coach over the years, she has been a hard
worker and team leader with many tal-
ents and skills. I will miss her," he said.
Warr's plans at Flagler other than soc-
cer includes majoring in communica-
tions and a minor in advertising, said," I
fell in love with the Flagler campus and
can't wait to get started there." She also
reminisced about her final soccer season
at Orange Park.
"The biggest game or goal that I
scored came against our rival Fleming Is-
land, I scored the-winning goal in that
game. That's one I'll never forget."

Keystone Heights


First year head coach Eric Andrew
shared his thoughts on Warr and what
she meant to his team, "She is an out-
standing athlete who possesses extreme-
ly great skills that will keep Flagler
moving forward."
"Although, I only had Sam one year
she showed me her knowledge of the
game and.more importantly she has a
great passion and a taste for winning. I
know Flagler has found a great addition
to their team," he added.
Not only did Warr fall in love the Fla-
gler community but her mother Lauric
Shugrue did as well.
"The school and campus is awesome,
during our tour I knew this was the
school," she said.
Samantha's father Eric Warr said,"this
is a great opportunity for her and I'in
happy she got the chance."
Also on hand was Flagler head coach
Teddy Myers whojust completed his first
year as coach and is excited about the ad-
dition of Warr.
"I believe Samantha is the missing piece
to our program, I view her as a cornerstone
to the soccer team who will keep us moving
forward. We lost nine seniors last )ear but
Sam is the type of player that can and will
make an immediate impact," he said.

CHIROPRACTOR -

OVERWORK AND OVERSTRAIN
You need body mechanics for good health, and this includes a spine in proper
alignment and a properly functioning nervous system. This can be threatened
however, by overwork and overstrain, especially on the job. In spite of attempts to
avoid overwork and overstrain, many people suffer the consequences, often in
painful back conditions, sore/tense muscles, stiff neck, headaches and pain between
the shoulder blades.
If this happened to you, you may be able to benefit from treatment by a doctor
of chiropractic. Back pain and other symptoms related to spinal misalignment can
be relieved through skilled manipulation techniques and other therapies. Your
chiropractic physician will correct the misalignments and help restore your nervous
system to normal functioning, relieving the pain and discomfort.

r Big weekend upcoming in Kissimmee


--r e B I It's a great time
for an impromp-
tu vacation to
Kissimmee, FL.
Fifty-one of the
VanceMcCullough best profession-
al bass anglers
P ayi on the planet are
i ayi g battling for a
$500,000 top
hooky prize in the 36th
annual Bassmas-
ih ter Classic, Fri-
with day Sunday,
Feb 24-26.
V n ce Historically,
raCe the Classic has
been contested in
late summer/early fall when waters of the
Deep South are too hot to ensure survival
of the fish that will be released, as they al-
ways are inBASS sanctioned events. As a re-
sult, Floridians have had to travel in order
to see bass fishing's greatest spectacle.
One of the recent changes enacted by
ESPN after purchasing the Bassmaster
circuit was the move to a winter Classic,
such that the best fisheries in the nation
would be able to host the "Super Bowl of
Bass Fishing".
Thousands of fans will line the banks
to see the pros take to the waters of West
Lake Toho at 6:30 a.m. each morning
from Lakefront Park in Kissimmee, adja-
cent to Big Toho Marina.


Spectators often follow the action at a
safe distance in their own boats. Courtesy
is of utmost importance. Bring binocu-
lars and don't run motors of any kind any
more than necessary. While the pros cer-
tainly enjoy entertaining a live audience,
they are also working and, as such, should
not be interfered with including having
their spots fished by onlookers as soon as
they leave. They often return to these
spots at regular intervals throughout the
tournament. Every fish counts for that
pro. Help him make history.
Many attendees stay on land during
tournament hours and visit the Classic
Outdoors Show, an experience that,
alone, would make the trip worthwhile.
Held in the Orange County Convention
Center, the show features the newest
boats, baits, and products from practical-
ly any company in the bass business.
There are also hunting-related vendors,
and even those hawking products not en-
demic to the outdoors industry.
The weigh-in extravaganza features
music, laser lights, pyrotechnics, and lots
of big Florida bass. The free show begins
daily at 2:30 p.m. in the Orange County
Convention Center. The house is always
packed with tens of thousands of.scream-
ing bass fans. So arrive early.
Of course, Kissimmee is 10 minutes
from Disney World, and not much further
from the numerous other Orlando attrac-
tions. Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World is


one not to be missed. They have live feed-
ing shows in the huge freshwater tank that
is the centerpiece of the store. Visitors can
watch redfish and snook feed alongside
some huge bass. There are even a couple
of the rare Suwannee Bass that inhabit
only the Suwannee River and its tributar-
ies and the tank at Bass Pro Shops.
Take the short drive and enjoy the
weekend. While you're-at it, root for local
anglers, Terry Scroggins, and Preston
Clark, both of Palatka, to win the most
major event in bass fishing.
To get to the lake: once in Kissimmee,
follow US Hwy 17/92 West (actually south
from Vine St.) to a left (south) on Ruby
Ave. A few blocks south, you'll run into
the lake, a right turn onto Lakeshore
Blvd. takes you west, to the boat ramp.
The Orange County Convention Cen-
ter is located on International Drive, near
1-4, south of Sand Lake Rd., between Ex-
hibit Drive and Convention Way.
Lots of useful information awaits at
wwwBassMaster.com and FloridaKiss.comn
Spring turkey season is not far off. In
about a month cameo-clad ninjas will sit
silent beneath trees in area woods hoping
to harvest the highly coveted Osceola
Turkey.
The Osceola, also called the Florida
Turkey, is a subspecies found nowhere on
the globe except the Florida peninsula.
While popular with locals, it also draws
out-of-state hunters almost as well as


trailer parks attract tornadoes.
The season opens March 18th and
runs through April 23rd in Florida's
North and Central hunting zones, with a
chance for hunters to get started sooner
if they head to the South region where it
opens on March 5th.
Success in the field begins with proper
preparation before entering the woods. It
never hurts to listen to some expert ad-
vice. Mr. Fred Stokes, a.k.a. "The Turkey
Man", will give a free seminar at Thrifty
Outdoors, Thursday, Feb. 23rd at 7:00 p.m.
Mr. Stokes has been making, using,
and teaching others to use, his "Feather
Touch" box calls for four decades. He is
among the nation's foremost turkey
hunting authorities.
Thrifty Outdoors also offers hunter
safety courses Feb. 27th 28th, and March
2nd, 3rd, and 4th, along with a concealed
weapons class Saturday, Feb. 25th at 9:00 am.
For more info, or to make reservations
for any event, call Thrifty Outdoors at
786-9080. Thrifty Outdoors is located at
6300 Yukon Street.
Bobcat and Otter hunting seasons
continue until the end February.

until March 5th in the Central hunting
zone, which includes Clay, and sur-
rounding counties.

Don't make the mistake of overpricing a home


Special to Clay Today By Krista Werbil
Prudential Network Realty

Pricing matters. When you decide to sell
your home, one of the most important de-
cisions you'll make is your initial listing
price.
Of course, you want to get as much for
your home as buyers may be willing to
pay. However, when determining the
price, don't make the mistake of over-
pricing. It's an understandable mistake,
but one that could prove costly if it slows
down the sale or makes other homes look
like a good value by comparison.
One trap many sellers fall into when
deciding a price is basing it on emotion.
After all, your home has been special to
you and your family. You've perhaps made
changes and improvements over the years.
But you need to ask yourself: how
important are those changes to a po-
tential buyer? How up-to-date are the


improvements?
It's easy to think your home is worth
more than your neighbor's or more than
the current market may support.
But, if you overprice your home, you
may attract the wrong buyers-buyers
who will compare your home to other
homes within the same price range and
walk away disappointed.
Some of those other homes may have
more amenities or be in better condition.
At the same time, you may eliminate a
pool of potential buyers who are shopping
for homes priced in the range of your
home's true market value.
Another challenge you face with over-
pricing is less initial traffic and diminished
interest. Generally, a home receives the
most activity during the first weeks it's on
the market.
If your home is priced more than similar
homes in your market, it may discourage
potential buyers who believe they can get a


better value somewhere else. In addition,
real estate professionals tend to not guide
qualified buyers to overpriced properties.
And, the longer your home stays on
the market, the more buyers may begin to
reason that there is something wrong with
the property.
If you overprice your home with a
thought of using a "price high then drop"
strategy; you run into the same risk of
buyers believing that something is wrong
with the property-or that you are des-
perate to sell. Eventually the property may
sell, but at how much of a loss-especial-
ly if you have purchased another resi-
dence and now have to cover two
mortgages and pay ongoing expenses?
Overpricing can also result in fewer of-
fers. For various reasons, buyers may feel
uncomfortable submitting a low bid when
there's a considerable difference between
the market value and selling price.
And, if you were to accept a bid at an


inflated price, your buyer may face fi-
nancing problems, because an over-
priced house will not appraise for the
selling price.
What can you do to ensure you're not
overpricing your home? Stick to the facts.
Hire a real estate appraiser for an ob-
jective unbiased estimate. Then consult
with a real estate professional who can
help you determine true market value
based on a comparable market analysis.
The key is to work with your real es-
tate professional to price right and create
a strategic marketing plan that creates ex-
citement from the moment your home de-
buts on the market.
Don't let the temptation to overprice
keep you from your best chance of getting
the best price, quickly.

Eliminate the woes of surprise home repairs


Special to Clay Today

.Few things are more disruptive and
frustrating than unexpected home re-
pairs. And when they occur, they can be
budget-busters.
From water heaters to air conditioners
to dishwashers, homeowners spend hun-
dreds of dollars annually to maintain and
repair their home's systems and appli-
ances. When major systems fail, expens-
es are even greater, averaging more than
$1,000 in repairs, according to experts.
The-good news is, there's a practical
and affordable solution to the surprise
costs and hassles when home systems and
appliances break: a home warranty. Home
warranties cover these major breakdowns,
and often for less than $500 per year.
More and more homeowners are dis-
covering home warranties. According to
recent findings, nearly 72 percent of real
estate professionals nationally recom-
mend home warranties to their clients
and 90. percent of California real estate
transactions close with one.
But cost isn't the only factor driving
their popularity; questionable contractors
are playing a role, too. When heating sys-
tems go haywire or the refrigerator loses
its cool, most homeowners prefer to have


someone else do the work. Trouble is,
finding qualified technicians quickly is no
easy task, compounding many home-
owners' frustrations.
Poor quality of work, disreputable con-
tractors and work not complying with
local codes are growing concerns among
homeowners searching for contractors.
Fortunately, home warranties can en-
sure help from a qualified technician in a
timely manner. In fact, American Home
Shield works with a network of 11,000 au-
thorized contractors who promise to visit
homeowners within two business days.
To ensure that homeowners receive the
best possible service, American Home
Shield continually evaluates its contrac-
tors on quality, cost and professionalism
by surveying homeowners.
SContractors with the highest survey
rankings receive more work, while those
with poor performances are removed
from its network.
In the past year, American Home
Shield covered more than 1.2 million
homes' systems and appliances with its
warranties and performed more than 2.3
million service calls nationwide.
For more information on how a home
warranty can save you money and time,

Homeowners turn up the volume on the home rehab trend


Special to Clay Today

For some, a home in need of repair and re-
habilitation represents a chance to be-
come a first-time homebuyer.
However, for others, such a home rep-
resents a business opportunity in the
growing $130 billion home remodeling
industry. Experts say rehabbers often help
first-time homebuyers realize their dream
of owning a home in a market full of sky-
rocketing prices.
Now, thanks to a franchise operation
that buys houses in volume, some believe
it may be possible to have a positive effect
on the homeownership trend and turn a
profit at the same time.
Through a national franchise chain
called HomeVestors of America, existing
single-family homes are purchased, re-
habbed and sold for a profit, often to first-
time homeowners, many of whom can't
find similar home prices available through

conventional real estate channels.
Franchisees buy homes in large
quantities that need the kind of fixing
up that existing homeowners don't want
to tackle and that first-time homebuyers
don't want to inherit. In 2004, fran-
chisees contracted to buy more than
6,000 run-down houses across the coun-
try, eliminating those remodeling
headaches for many.
Unlike independent real estate in-
vestors, the company has built its brand
and its collective buying power through
franchising.
Today, with more than 250 locations, a
multimillion-dollar advertising campaign,
business training and home financing
support, it has also established a reputa-
tion for being a legitimate and reputable
home rehab chain that a consumer can
trust when selling or buying a home.
Its business plan calls for growing its

American homeowners become accidental investors


Special to Clay Today

A recent national survey revealed that the
majority of homeowners are "accidental
investors" when it comes to real estate.
While millions of people are buying
homes, only 11 percent are using this
time-honored investment as a retirement-
building tool that could ensure long-term
financial security.
"Homeowners have acknowledged
that real estate is the most 'able' invest-
ment a person can make," said Dave
Jenks, co-authoi of The New York Times
and BusinessWeek best-seller The Mil-
lionaire Real Estate Investor. "It is,
among other things, appreciable, lever-
ageable, improvable and stable. Knowing
that, it's surprising that even though 81
percent of homeowners surveyed de-
scribed their primary home as a 'good' or
'great' investment, only 16 percent are


seriously planning to invest in addition-
al real estate in the near future."
The independent study commissioned
by Keller Williams Realty International,
surveyed 600 homeowners and renters in
the United States to find out why they
rely on traditional investment vehicles,
such as 401(k) plans (43 percent) and
savings accounts (40 percent) to fund
their retirement, instead of additional
real estate investments.
Homeowners stated they were reluc-
tant to invest in real estate outside of their
primary homes because:
They don't have enough money or
are still saving (37 percent);
It involves too much responsibility,
upkeep or maintenance (34 percent);
They don't want to or aren't interest
ed (29 percent);
It costs too much money (28 percent);
They don't want mortgage payments


(18 percent); or
They have too much debt already
(14 percent).
Survey respondents also highlighted a
lack of financial savvy (homeowners, 9
percent versus renters, 15 percent) as a
barrier to investing in real estate.
"These findings reinforce what we
learned while interviewing more than 120
millionaire real estate investors for our
book," says co-author Jay Papasan. "So
many people are letting this opportunity
slide by because of what we call
'MythUnderstandings.' They think that
they don't have enough money or lack the
knowledge to invest and that a MythUn-
derstanding holds them back. The truth is
that it is possible and our investors
showed us the way."
The door is open but only 11 percent of
Americans are using real estate as a
wealth-building tool.

later on and that could mean spending
more money than you had in mind.
If you are not able to safely make the
repairs yourself, contact a local home
maintenance or repair professional for as-
sistance. If you are unsure of how to iden-
tify a reputable construction contractor,
electrician or plumber, consider a local
real estate professional as a resource.
Making an informed decision is cru-
cial when selecting who will complete the
needed repairs on your home.
Should you remodel?
In addition to protecting and preserv-
ing what may be the largest single pur-
chase in your lifetime, your home is also
intended to be lived in and enjoyed. It's
been said that a person's home is his or
her castle, so why not make it so?
No matter what the age of your home,
sooner or later, you're going to want or
need to join the millions of homeowners
who want to remodel. Among the major
reasons homeowners remodel is more
space, upgrading outdated areas or ele-
ments such as kitchens or baths, improv-
ing the overall energy efficiency of the
home or trying to increase the home's
overall value for resale.
Whether conducting routine home
maintenance or considering the addi-
tion of a guest room or breakfast nook,
remember that while homeownership
can be a dream come true, it requires a
great deal of work and responsibility in
order to enjoy it and keep it in good
condition.
Make that home repair now. Later, it
may cost lots more.

GREEN COVE SPRINGS -Just one year
ago this month Garber Automall
opened its sparkling new body shop on
U.S.17just north of Green Cove Springs'
city limit. In that time, says Body Shop
Manager Mike Fitzgerald, volume has
almost doubled over that at the old site.
Staff, too, has nearly doubled, from
seven employees at the old location to
13, to handle the increase and support
future growth.
Motorists on US17 can't miss the
body shop; unlike most dealership
shops, it's right up front and easy to get
to. This, Fitzgerald says, was at the direct
instruction of the Automall's owner,
who places a high premium on customer
convenience. Says Fitzgerald, "It's all
about customer satisfaction and ease."
When the body shop was moved in
February 2005, no existing equipment
was brought along; the new shop was
equipped with all new machinery
from electronic measuring devices to
frame straightening equipment to
brand new paint booths. The shop
even has facilities for spray-in truck
bed liners.
The paint booths are really state-of-
the-art with computerized paint mixing
that can exactly match the vehicle's orig-
inal color. By entering the vehicle's paint
code, the equipment mixes the color
from its extensive supply of pigments.
The main bay of the shop is equipped
with vehicle lifts, something not seen in
many body shops.
Frame machinery is among the most

Rebuilt engines better than original


Q: About four or five times a
month the idle on my 1997 Nissan
Sentra GXE is much lower than
normal. It runs so slow, it feels as
though the engine is going to stall.
It does not matter if the engine is
at full operating temperature or
stone cold. Within five minutes
the idle returns to normal until
the next time it falters. What could
cause this? Is it the computer or
distributor? -- R.H., Anaheim,
Calif.
A: It is not likely either of these
parts is at fault. The condition is
probably caused by excessive dirt
and deposits. What may need to be
done is a thorough cleaning of the
throttle body. This is a matter of
removing deposits of dirt and
grime using a factory suggested
spray chemical.
It is a job tht can probably be
done at home for those that are
mechanically inclined, have the
proper tools and a repair manual.
Chemical products for this type of
service are available at just about
every auto supply store. A parts
department person at a dealership
also should be able to suggest an
appropriate cleaner.
Once a thorough cleaning is
properly completed, the idle
should return to normal at least
until the next time dirt and grime
impairs proper throttle body
function.
Q: The supercharged engine in
my 1995 Buick Riviera with78,000
miles sounds like a noise similar to
ball bearings rolling around in an
old washing machine. The noise is
prevalent at an idle but not when
driving.
My local dealership technician
diagnosed the cause of the noise as
a worn belt and pulley. After re-
placing the parts for $540 the
noise remained and the engine
had a terrible vibration. The tech-
nician said he installed the incor-
rect pulley. He replaced it and the
vibration disappeared but not the
noise. They said the noise possibly
could be the result of a failing su-
percharger. To replace the part is
$2,000, but there is no guarantee
that this actually is the cause of the
noise.
I went to another garage that
was well rated and had them re-
place all of the pulleys and install
another belt. Despite this, the


noise continues. Is it worth replac-
ing the supercharger for $2,000
without a guarantee that it is the
cause of the noise? -- A.S., Laguna
Nigel, Calif.
A: It would not be wise to re-
place the part unless certain that it
is the cause of the noise. Since the
noise is only heard at an idle, here
are some ideas to consider sug-
gesting to a mechanic.
First he could listen to the su-
percharger with a stethoscope. If it
appears to be the source of the
sound, with the drive belt removed
from the supercharger, he could
start the engine for a short dura-
tion and listen for the noise. If the
noise is not present, this is a pretty
good sign that a bearing or bush-
ing in the supercharger failed and
is the source of the sound.
Also, since the supercharger
contains oil for lubrication, the oil
could be drained and sent to a lab-
oratory for analysis. A lab test
costs about $30. If a laboratory
technician finds excessive bearing
material in the oil, it is a sure bet
that the supercharger has internal
failures and needs replacement.
Q: Every 3,000 miles I take my
1997 Honda Civic to my local deal-
ership for an oil and filter change.
Right now it has 82,000 miles on it.
The technician always fills the en-
gine with regular motor oil. This
time a service advisor suggested
switching to synthetic oil. agreed
to the switch even though it is
more expensive.
Since I-want to put another
82,000 miles on this car, was this
good advice? Are there any advan-
tages or disadvantages to using
synthetic oil? -- J.Z., onawanda,
N.Y.
A: Synthetic oil does have the
ability to provide better lubrica-
tion over mineral oil in extreme
cold temperatures and in hot
weather. Since you live where it
can be brutally cold, the engine
will benefit from the performance
of synthetic oil. The engine will
crank faster especially during the
initial start on cold mornings be-
cause synthetic lubricant remains
liquid in extreme cold tempera-
tures when mineral oil turns to the
consistency of grease.
Yes, the cost of synthetic lubri-
cant is higher. Synthetic oil gets
just as dirty in 3,000 miles as regu-


lar mineral motor oil. So the cost
would be higher since it is impor-
tant to change the oil and filter
every 3,000 miles as the grit and
chemicals accumulate in the oil
whether the lubricant is synthetic
or mineral oil.
The fine particles and chemi-
cals wear internal engine parts
such as the cylinder walls, bearings
and valve guides where proper lu-
brication and cleanliness are es-
sential for the longevity of the
engine. The more dirt and chemi-
cals contained in the lubricant, the
more the parts are subject to wear.
Since the oil is changed so regu-
larly, the Civic will probably last
for another 200,000 to 300,000
miles or longer without an engine
overhaul wit the use of synthetic
because of its lubricating proper-
ties but the cost of the lubricant
will far exceed that of mineral oil.
The decision really depends on
how long you want your vehicle to
provide service.
Q: What is the difference be-
tween a used engine and a rebuilt
engine? If a used engine is in-
stalled in my car, is the mileage on
the used engine added to the
mileage on the original engine? --
B.T., e-mail.
A: A used engine generally is an
engine purchased from a junk
yard, salvage yard or auto recycler.
It has not been reconditioned and
bears the wear and tear of the
original vehicle. Engines such as
these may have a limited warranty
or no warranty at all. If a used en-
gine has 50,000 miles on it and the
car that needs the engine only has
40,000 miles it shouldcbe disclosed
to a future buyer that the engine
has 10,000 more miles on it than
the odometer states.
Another thing to consider is that
when you purchase a car, there are
numbers on the engine that identi-
fy it to the vehicle. If you change
the engine and for some reason
there is an investigation, a check of
the engine number and vehicle
number will reveal that the origi-
nal engine is not in the car.
A rebuilt or remanufactured
engine is a used engine that is
completely remanufactured to
meet or exceed the carmaker's
specifications. Generally, the bear-
ings, pistons, piston rings, valves,
crankshaft, .camshaft, balance


shafts, bushings, washers, guides,
gaskets and any moving part or
part that needs to be brought back
to original factory condition and
specification is renewed. It is as
close to new as it can be with up-
dates that often exceed the facto-
ry specifications when it was
originally built. Remanufactured
or rebuilt engines often have a
warranty that covers many years
and thousands of miles. These are
more expensive than used engines
but there are many more benefits.
Q: My 1987Jeep Cherokee Lare-
do with 142,000 miles and a 4.0-
liter six-cylinder engine runs great
once it is warm. The problem oc-
curs when it is stopped before the
engine reaches full operating tem-
perature. Then the engine is diffi-
cult to restart but it eventually
starts. Also, the idle at a stop light
will drop so low, the engine wants
to die. Once it reaches normal tem-
perature, it runs fine. The care has
a new fuel filter and fuel pump so
these are not part of the problem.
What is wrong? -- T., e-mail.
A: There are a few things to con-
sider. It is possible that with
142,000 miles the engine has ex-
cessive carbon deposits in the
cylinders and valve system. The
deposits could impairproper fuel
delivery especially when the en-
gine is not at operating tempera-
ture. If this is true, a top engine
cleaner might be in order to re-
move the deposits and return nor-
mal fuel delivery.
It is also possible that the engine
idle needs adjustment. There is a
procedure a technician can per-
form to adjust the idle.
Another possibility is that the
crankshaft sensor might be faulty
or the electrical connection on the
sensor might be impaired due to
corrosion, oil, dirt or a fault. A
technician can test the sensor and
check the elecytical connection for
faults. If the sensor is faulty, re-
place it. If the connector plug is
dirty, clean it. If there is a fault in
the wiring, replace it. Ask an expe-
rienced technician to consider
these suggestions.

New look, new capabilities:




2007 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV


First of the next generation of full-size
SUVs from General Motors, Chevrolet
introduces the all-new 2007 Tahoe.
Comprehensively redesigned, Tahoe
delivers a sharper, more precise driving
feel, more power, segment-leading fuel
economy, increased interior refine-
ment and improved quietness. The new
Chevrolet SUV is built on GM's new full-
size SUV platform, which features a new,
fully boxed frame, coil-over-shock front
suspension, rack-and-pinion steering
and an all-new premium interior system
that bolsters the vehicle's comfort,
quality and capability.
Wider front and rear tracks enhance
handling and lower the center of gravi-
ty for a more confident road feel. The
five-link rear suspension features a
more robust rear axle design for in-
creased payload capacity. Like the front
suspension, the rear suspension uses
new, stiffer frame mounts for suspen-
sion component attachment, along with
variable-rate springs and monotube


- I.


shock absorbers (except with Au-
toride-equipped LTZ models).
The 2007 Tahoe is available with
three distinctly tuned suspension
systems: ZW7 Premium Smooth
Ride (std. 2WD/4WD models), Z55
(includes Autoride) and the Z71 Off
Road suspension (available on 4WD
with late availability).
Available in two- or four-wheel
drive configurations, power for the
Tahoe is produced by a new gener-
ation of GM's legendary Gen IV
small-block V8 engine. Boasting
advanced technology such as Dis-
placement-on-Demand, the Tahoe
will be available initially with the
5.3L V8 prime mover. A Flex-Fuel
E85 version capable of running on
E85 ethanol fuel or a mixture of
E85 and gasoline is standard on
4WD models and available on
2WD models. A smaller 4.8L ver-
sion of the Gen IV small-block V8
will be standard on Tahoe 2WD

models later in the model year. Both
engines transfer torque to the ground
through a Hvdra-Matic 4L60E four-
speed automatic transmission.
Offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim
levels, the new Tahoc was designed
with an all-new interior that represents
significant new levels of refinement,
comfort, quality and convenience.
Displays, controls and switchgear were
all updated for a modern, sophisticat-
ed look and operation.
The roomier interior of the 2007
Tahoc is airy, thanks to a lower instru-
ment panel and deeper windshield that
improve outward visibility. Passenger
space is increased too, including more
shoulder space for rear passengers. Of
particular note are features such as a
unique remote-release fold-and-tum-
ble second row seat and a third row seat
that is also easily removable. In Clay
County, both Garber Automall in
Green Cove Springs (264-2442) and
Gordon Chevrolet in Orange Park
(272-2200) have several models of the
2007 Tahoe to choose from.

Come live the human side of space


at Astronaut Hall of Fame


By Mark Pettus
m petI us@jrpgroup.com

CAPE CANAVERAL -- Of all the
things that fascinate us about the
space program, perhaps what is most
fascinating is the people, the astro-
nauts, those brave men and women
who would strap a rocket to their backs
and take off toward the stars. The U. S.
Astronaut Hall of Fame is dedicated to
those human pioneers, and one of the
few places on this planet where visitors
can walk in their footsteps.
When school let out in December
1968, I'm sure I imagined spending my
Christmas vacation sleeping in, or
playing in the makeshift fort that
served as headquarters for the neigh-
borhood boys. I know I didn't plan on
spending it watching television, cer-
tainly not watching Walter Cronkite,
but when Apollo 8 took off for the
Moon, with astronauts Frank Borman,
James Lovell, and William Anders, for
mans first close up visit to our lunar
companion I (along with millions of
other people) found myself glued to
television.
Cronkite and his fellow news peo-
ple spent a lot of time talking about
the science, and the engineering, and


what a marvel it was that this tiny cap-
sule could carry men so far from
home, keeping them alive in the great
void of space. The science and engi-
neering was too much for my soon to
be eight years old brain, but I under-
stood those were men up there, human
beings not much different than me.
Later, while sitting alone on my roof,
staring at the moon hoping to catch a
glimpse of the command module, it
was easy for me to imagine myself as
one of those astronauts, more alone
than any human being in history had
ever been. I decided then that I want-
ed to be an astronaut.
Almost 40 years have gone by, and
the road I followed never led to the
stars, but that eight-year-old boy is still
lurking inside me, waiting for his
chance to strap a rocket to his back and
take off for the moon. I know he's still
there, because he came out to play at
the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.
Whether you grew up in the age of
the Space Shuttle, or the age of Apollo,
or were already an adult when Alan
Shepherd rode Freedom 7 into the his-
tory books in 1961, you'll find some-
thing to connect you to the stars at the
hall of fame. The first thing you see as

you approach the building is a full
sized space shuttle with a walk ramp
leading to its door. When you enter the
building, you immediately come face
to face with a larger-than-life bronze
statue of Shepard, the first American
flag flown in space, and a 30' mural
painted by Astronaut Alan Bean.
Inside the exhibit hall you'll see Gus
Grissom's Mercury space suit, and a
historic collection of spacecraft, in-
cluding a Mercury Sigma 7, a Gemini
Trainer, adidthe Apollo 14 command


Module. The Hall of Fame has glass
etchings of the inducted astronauts,
and the world's largest collection of as-
tronaut memorabilia. One large case
is filled with items that the astronauts
carried into space with them, and an-
other has flight helmets a reminder
that many of these spacemen were
originally fighter pilots.
Finally, the chance to walk in the as-
tronauts' shoes comes in the interactive

with you, can climb into simulators that
allow you to explore the surface of Mars,
play handball in a virtual space station,
and feel the pull of four G's in the G-
Force trainer. You can walk in a simula-
tor that is designed to mimic walking on
the moon, where gravity is 1/6th what it
is on earth. You don't need to be as fit as
one of the Mercury 7 to use these simu-
lators, but if you suffer from motion
sickness, or heart problems, you might
want to stay with the stationary simula-
tors that allow you to practice landing
the space shuttle, or docking with a satel-
lite traveling 17,000 miles per hour. You
can don an astronaut's helmet, and use
an astronaut's boot to make footprints in
the fine powder that simulates the lunar
surface. I particularly enjoyed a small
