Clean river program includes

-By Greg Walsh
Managing Editor
ORANGE PARK - Clay County is one of
the tig k inners in the recently announced
river accord, which would provide nearly
$20 million for three different wastewater
management projects.
The reason, according to St. Johns
River Water Management District (SJR-


VNIMD) officials, is because Clay County is
one of the leaders in Noriherji Florida
when it comes to u6iinrg reclaimed water-
a prrot'ess a i.rt eep r pollutants and un-
'. anted nurrienis out of the St. Johns River.
"Cla\ Counti\ has really been a leader
in this area for a number of years," said
Kraig McLane, SJRIWMD district lower
basin program manager. ' Cne of the rea-
sons they are receiving more money than

some others because the', hae prorams

Work doesn't have to be dull


Maybe it's just me - sometimes I think
I may have a weird sense- of humor. How-
ever, in the 44 years I have been in- the
newspaper business, I have worked for a,.
number of newspapers, some large, some
small. At every one of them, there have-
been things that happen that run the gamut
from mildly amusing to wildly hilarious.
I'd like to share a few of them.
At one of the papers where I worked, I
came in one morning to find one of the re-
.porters sitting in front of her desk with an ex-
pression on her face that was very little short
of pure wonderment. It stopped me dead in
my tracks. I asked her what in the world the
problem was. In answering, she dropped her
eyes and looked to the side under the desk
next to hers. There, curled up on the floor
fast asleep was another reporter. That was
one of the few times in my life when I was
struck speechless. For awhile. .
Another time and another community
newspaper; I had hired a really shy high
school girl to come in on afternoons to
handle the front counter. One very dull.af-,
ternoon, I wandered out to the front, stood


Fromi

there for.a minute and then I said, "Gee, I
wish I had been born rich instead of hand-
some." This poor shy girl broke up and
was instantly embarrassed. The terrible
tease that I am, I never missed an oppor-
tunity after that to start, "Gee, I wish..."
That's. as far as I would ever get; the poor
girl would plead, "Oh, Mr. Henderson,
please don't." -
We had a reporter at a sister newspa-
per that was hopelessly accident-prone.
One afternoon this hapless young man fell
out of his chair - he really did. The next
day, when he *,-,e ito v irl he found that


some joker - not me, I wish it had been -
had fitted his chair with seatbelts.
The largest paper I worked for was a
fairly good-sized metropolitan daily. I
worked in the promotion department,
which could sometimes be a busy place.
We had just hired a new secretary for the
department and she reported for the first
day at work. Lunchtime came and she left.
By mid-afternoon, she had.not returned
and the boss came out of his office and
asked if any of us heard from her; we had
not. He walked over to her desk and there'
was a piece of paper on her typewriter-
(that should give you an idea of how long
ago it was). It said, "I. quit. There's no
sense talking about it; this job is not for
me." We never saw her again.
In one of the cr.imrririi:, newspapers,
the news. editor's.desk faced a reporter's
desk with only a low wall between them. On
one occasion, the editor and the reporter
were having a discussion and be darned if
the reporter didn't climb up on her hands
and knees on her desk and lean over the
Wall to make her point. The expression on


the editor's face was wonderful.
For years I have heard of "knee-slap-
pers" to describe a hilariously funny situ-
ation. The young reporter I just mentioned
is the only person I have ever seen that
actually laughed so hard she actually
slapped her knee. The occasion was when
she came bopping into my office and sat
down on a camera bag I had left on a
chair. She immediately leaped up and
asked if she had broken anything. I looked
and told her no, she had only squished my
tube of PreparationH. That's when she
went to knee-slapping.
One morning I picked up the paper and
turned to the police reports. As I was run-
ning down through the list of arrests, I
stopped, my eyes bulged and I choked. I
called the police reporter over and asked
him to read a particular entry. You could
hear his roar of laughter three blocks away.
There it was, a person was charged with,
"Possession of cannibal less than 20 grams."
That small, he wasn't even an appetizer.
These still give me a chuckle when I
think of them; I hope you've enjoyed them..

School buses roll to a smooth start


By Debbie Israel Messer
Staff Writer
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - Clay County
schools Transportation Supervisor Bob
Veres comes to work before buses roll in
the morning and stays until the last bus is
back at the end of the day.
That can make for some very long days
because the some buses head to their first
stop at 5 a.m. and the last buses will re-


Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK--The Clay County Cham-
ber will be sponsoring a debate for those.
candidates running for the Clay County
School Board.
The debate is scheduled for Thursday,
Aug. 1-0, at 7 p.m. at Fleming Island High
School, 2233 Village Square Parkway, Or-
ange Park.
Nikki Preede, reporter at WJXT- Chan-
nel 4, will moderate the event, The debate,
will be broadcast on Comcast Channel 29.
"Our public schools play a vital role in
our county and it's important that those
School Board .candidates have a forum to
inform the public on their vision for the fu-,
ture," said Bob Krieger,, chamber board
chairman. "This debate is the opportuni-
ty to ask the tough questions of the candi-
dates and find out how they plan on
-improving the education system in our
county. I-encourage everyone in Clay
County to attend or watch the debate."
The Chamber has received confirnia-
tion that all seven candidates will be par-
ticipating in the debate. They include:
* Janice A. Kerekes, District 1
* William J. Simmons, District 1
* Carol Vallencourt, District 1
* Karen A. Lake, District 3,
* Charles E. Van Zant, Jr., District 3
: Leslie D. Dougher, District 5

turn between 5 and 5:30 p.m.
The start of school could make those
days even tougher, but Veres says that the
start of school has been very smooth.
The 209 buses and drivers out on the
road these days are carrying more than
16,000 students, just under 50 percent of
the school population.
While that's a difference of only four
additional buses from last year, buses are
more full this year.


* Lisa Graham, District 5
The primary election is on September 5
and the general election is on November 7.


Veres says the increase is due prima- bc
rily to the addition of OakLeaf K-8.,
The total number might be lower if not e
for Clay County's decision -to bus more m
children than required by the state. ar
The state establishes areas called
'walk zones' where it is presumed stu- w
dents will walk to school and not need bus a
transportation. Accordingly, the state will tc
not fund transportation for students
whose homes are within the walk zones ri
with -one caveat - where the path to cc
school is considered, so hazardous that
students should not walk to school. tl
One such area includes areas along a
County Road 220., . r
The state 'established walk zone for el-
ementary is two.miles long meaning only ra
students beyond.that will be counted for di
funding purposes. ul
Clay County has chosen to use a one-
and-a-half-mile walk zone for elementary si
.schools meaning parents are happy but
that the funds for those students have to

The district also allows courtesy rid-
rs to ride the buses - a number esti-
nated by Veres to fluctuate between 800
nd 1,000 riders.
Courtesy riders are. those students
within the walk zone who are located along
route with a less than full bus. Thdy have
o get on the bus at a regular stop.
Courtesy riders are not permitted to

complete so as to not bump any rider.
Courtesy riders' parents are told .that
hey can be bumped if a regular rider needs
seat or if the ridership increases through
route zone changes or riders moving in.
Veres says the district runs a higher
ate. of buses as well for exceptional stu-

CCUA project

brings pork to


powerbrokers

Dear Editor:
The Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA)
voted 5-2 last week to spend $25,000 of
public funds to support a "Trojan horse"
pork-barrel project to benefit a couple of po-
litical powerbrokers in Clay County.
The project, deceptively labeled a "vi-
sioning" committee, is nothing more than
a pet project of these local powerbrokers
to take advantage of a loophole placed in
a state law by their Tallahassee lobbyists.
"Visioning" is deceptive in that while it
appears to the.unsuspecting public to be an
innocent, well-meaning effort to create an
inventory of all their needs for schools and
infrastructure, it really is nothing but a se-
ries of meetings attended by landowner and
real estate interests who are attuned to the
hidden purposes of visioningg."
-This ingenious loophole, written into
the Urban Growth Managemeht Act, will
prevent the state from reviewing and re-
jecting land development proposals such
as those in Lake Asbury which fail to meet
state minimum funding -standards for
schools and infrastructure costs caused
by the growth proposed by these same
.powerbrokers.
By setting up and going through this "vi-
sioning" process, Clay County will then be
exempt from state review of development
projects. In addition, the limitation on the
number of times a land use plan or zoning
map can be amended would be lifted.
The $25,000 expenditure over five
years to assist local powerbrokers evade
state scrutiny goes hand-in-hand with their
announcement to fund selected candidates
who are committed to abolish impact fees
and shift the cost of new schools and in-
frastructure back onto existing homeown-
ers in'the form of another new tax.
Tnese same powerbrokers were suc-
cessful once before when they supported
candidates to the County Commission who
passed the new utility tax in spite of pub-
lic opposition to it. It's scandalous to see
the Utility Authority squander scarce pub-
lic funds at a time when the same Author-
ity will soon be asking the public to pay the
biggest rate hike in recent history.
Concerned ratepayers should attend,
the next public hearing of the Utility Au-
thority when they consider water and
sewer rate hikes and ask them to revoke
the $25,000 pork-barrel gift to the power-
brokers that want the public to subsidize
their development costs.
Call the CCUA and get the dates, time
and place of their public hearing on the
rate increase. Let them know the-taxpay-
ers don't want their funds committed to
such a deceptive maneuver. The power-
brokers are becoming more creative in
their efforts to camouflage their ways of
feeding at the public trough!"

Dad's advice: Don't take any wooden nickels


Dear Jennifer:
Inf a couple of days we'll all load into
the car and head south to your new school.
It looks like a nice "place. When we
visited several months ago there were
lots of friendly faces and comfortable
surroundings.
But it's not home and that means
some anxious times are ahead. Don't be
ashamed to be scared. Everyone is the
first few weeks while trying to find out
where everything is and making new
friends. Just don't let it define your ex-
perience and don't let it stop you from
enjoying the experience.
' Most of all don't be afraid to reach
out to others around you. The joy of
friendship is worth risking rejection.
Here I go giving advice when I know
you don't need any. You're a pretty smart
kid-smarter than your dad, that's for
sure.
(This is based on actual SAT scores!)
I do feel obligated, however, to give
you a little smattering of wisdom. After
all, what are parents for if not for un-
welcome advice?
Here it is: Take every opportunity to
laugh.
Laugh as hard and as often in your
life as you possibly can. Go to movies
that make you laugh. Find friends that
make you.augh, and pray that you pick
a career and a job that will bring you
laughter and joy.
There will be plenty of time for tears

ment away, whether caused by members
of your own family or the world's contin-

I'm writing this as we're wrapping
up another week's paper. As much as I
enjoy this work, life can get a bit tedious
and repetitive. Nobody can go climbing
mountains and discovering new types of
monkeys in the rain forest every, day.
Life isn't like that.

so important. Find your passion, then.

from, friends (who weren't half-bad, by
the way) will be there when you need it.
It's a scary time. Even by world stah-
dards, these are dangerous days: The
homeland we always thought was safe is
now in the crosshairs of hateful people.
Stay vigilant and be prepared.
There are going to be people you
meet at college - even respected peo-
ple in positions of authority - who 1,r -
lieve America isn't that great; even bad.
I encourage you to listen to them, con-
sider what they say and then use the
value system I hope we instilled in you
to judge their remarks. We know you will
make the right decision.
One thing: I hope you'll remember
your family has blue-collar roots. That
doesn't just mean take it easy with the
only-in-emergencies credit card we gave
you, but also that the fruits of hard work
and sustained effort are always sweeter
than a handout.
I know you will keep the Lord in your
heart and make faith a part of your life.
It will sustain you in those difficult times
everyone has to face.
Finally, I pray you will always keep
family close by, even when it doesn't
seem like you have the strength to do it.

take that smile and look of wonder you
had when you walked into that first-

Good luck bee-bee. I love you.

Dear Editor:
On Friday, July 28, we had a flag rais-
ing ceremony in honor of our patient Mr.
Norman Jones.
He arranged the Army Color Guard to
come and perform a very touching and mem-
orable ceremony as we retired our flag and
raised a.new flag.
Mr. Jones served in the Army and is
known as "Sarge" in our facility. He had
the honor of presenting our new flag to the
color guard and another Veteran resident
in the facility performed a blessing of the
flag before it was raised.
As the National Anthem was per-
formed by our very own family member
"Sandra Smith" the patients, staff and vis-
itors had tears in their eyes as we enjoyed
this patriotic moment.
Sarge stood at attention and made us
all very proud! This was a special moment
for all of us and one we will never forget!
After the ceremony we -had refresh-
ments inside and the residents were able
to visit with the Army Color Guard.
As we were socializing they expressed
how touching this was for them, some-
thing they wouldn't forget and they want
to come back and visit!
Thanks Sarge, for making a special
memory for all!

bring industry and jobs -but will also en-

County adopts magistrate plan for code enforcement


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer

GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The problem of
gaining compliance in code enforcement
actions has been a thorn in the side of the
Clay County Commissioin i BCCi for some
time.-But, as Code Enlorniemeril Board
(CEB) Chairman Ar id Nelson would the
BCC, the problem in gaining compirance
has been in the system itself
Until now, alleged x iolaiors have been
summoned to appear before the CEB
where the alleged violation was present-
ed by the code enforcement officer. If the
CEB found that a violation did indeed
exist, it could and did impose a daily fine
until the problem was resolved. Because-
some defendants were in no hurry ti conm-
ply, the problem might go on for weeks and


hired by the county.
In a parting shot, Nelson said, "In re-
gard to the increase of the Commission to
five members, the Charter Review Com-
mission did not recommend that the pres-
ent BCC be dissolved and replaced with a
single professional."
Responding to a Nelsorr sitleirent that
numbers were wrong, Commissioner.
Harold Ruiledge s.iked if'he was accuirate
County Manager Fritz Behring responded
that you can take any scenario you want
and plug numbers into it.
Rutledge then asked if there were any
reason to believe that the recommenda-
tion (to establish a special magistrate)
should be changed and Behring said no.
McGovern said that the whole ques-
tion is one of compliance. Referring to the
proposal that both systems be used, he


said, "I don't like a split system; we've
stuck with the old ways too long."
Chairman Glenn Lassiter said, "My
concern has been the perception of lack of
professionalism. This proposed system
should correct that."
Commissioner John Thrasher agreed.
"This is a quasi judicial proceeding," he
said. "If.I had been asked to design a sys-
,tem, this is the one I would create."
The plopoual passed 3-1 kith Rutledge,
still expressing reservations, voting no.
Turning to other matters, the commis-
sion did some "fine tuning" of the Concur-
rency Management System, and the Land
Development Regulations for Branan Field
and Lake Asbury.
Considering concurrency, Planning Di-
rector I hud Cro"' e presented a number of
adjustments of traffic impact, administra-
tive methodologies, traffic counts and ap-
peals procedures.
At the conclusion of Crowe's presentation,
Thrasher expressed amazement that, "...no
one in the audience had any comment."


Pretly much the same situation pre-
vailed with the two LDR items. There ws a
request, however, that final action on the
Lake Asbury LDRs be continued to mid-
September.
Responding to the suggestion, Crowe
said, ' From a selfish point of view, this is
my final gift to you. I would like to have
Lake Asbury wrapped up in a tight little
package when I leave."
All three items will receive a second
consideration Aug. 22.
In other business, the BCC:
Heard Matthew Harrell recommend
using the university system to develop an
urban plan, freeze the assets of those in-
dicted in the illegal dumping and instruct
the county attorney to initiate suit for re-
covery from them;
Received a statement from Thrasher
that Department of Transportation Secre-
tary Denver Stutler Jr. will meet with BCC
members Monday, Aug. 21, at 1 p.m. in
the County Administration Building.

muscular diseases with their Boot Drive that took place May 27 - 29. This year the Clay County Firefighters
raised $38,545:


even months with the fine accumulating
on a daily basis.
When compliance finally was
achieved, the total fine could reach hun-
dreds and even thousands of dollars and
the defendant would return to the CEB for
relief. At that point the CEB frequently re-
duced the fine and the case went before
the BCC for ratification.
The BCC usually confirmed the CEB
recommendation and the result was, as
Commissioner Pat McGovern described it,
"...a toothless tiger." To add to the com-
mission's frustration, they were seeing
some defendants over and over again.
At its regular meeting Tuesday, Aug. 8,
the commission took steps to alleviate the
problem by adopting an ordinance abol-
ishing the CEB and establishing a special
magistrate with legal powers to adjudicate
cases, impose fines and liens and order
foreclosures with BCC ratification.
Nelson approached the board to regis-
ter his reservations regarding the propos-
al. He said he was not opposed to the idea
of a special magistrate but did not approve
of the dissolution of the CEB. He suggest-
ed that the county employ both systems
and said that there are a number of juris-
dictions in the state that do. He said he
could not approve of replacing a panel of
volunteer peers with a single attorney

ZGoldman's owner is a real 'gold man


Clay Today staff
ORANGE PARK - Some people might
pass Magid Rouphail's College Drive busi-
ness and immediately believe his last
name is "Goldman."
It would be an easy assumption, see-
ing how the name of his jewelry store is
named "ZGoldman."
"A lot of people come in here and think
my first name starts with a Z and my last
name is Goldman," Rouphail said. "I can
-see how they would believe that."
So how did he come up with the name
S ofthe sr ior,. which opened two years ago
in the .100 block of College Drive.
"What is the last letter of the alpha-
bet? Z," Rouphail said, "and we are the
end, the top, when it comes to jewelry and


gold. You can't do any better than us. The
goldman stands for the fact that we han-
dle more gold than anything else."
Gold and jewelry is something the re-
tired Navy communications officer knows
a great deal about.
An Egyptian immigrant who became a
naturalized citizen in 1974, Rouphail said
he began to learn working on and creating
jewelry pieces while in the military. In
fact, he says his business was extremely
popular during the 15 years he was sta-
tioned in Italy.
After retirement, Rouphail, 50, said
he decided to leave the business be-
hind and take it easy. But he couldn't
stay away.
"It wasn't about the money. I have
pension and retirement money. This is my

Juliana Wetmore's dream comes true


By Natasha Khairullah
Staff Writer
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - Some little
ones have a wading pool in their back
yard. Some have a trampoline. Last week,
thanks to the generosity of Lowe's staff
members, Stein Mart and Dreams Come
True, Julianna Wetmore will have her very
own custom-made playground in hers.
On Wednesday, Aug. 2, team of volun-
teers from Lowe's of Orange Park, led by
Steve Jones, worked at Juliana's home
at2524 Glenfield Drive, Green Cove
Springs. for nearly nine hours to put to-
gether a CederWorks Play Place that was
presented to her and her family by Dreams
Come True and sponsored by Stein Mart.
Juliana, 3, a local child known all
around the world for her courage and de-
termination and loving personality, was
born missing 30-40-percent of the bones in
her face, a genetic craniofacial birth defect
called Treacher Collins Syndrome. She has
been through 21 surgeries and will under-
go an unknown number in future years.
She and her family have been through a
tremendous time, and continue to face an
uphill medical battle. She has been dream-
ing of her very own, custom-designed, play-
ground set and so, Dreams Come True, the
First Coast's only locally based non-profit
organization dedicated to fulfilling dreams
of children battling life-threatening illness-
es, is making Juliana's dream a reality.
"The playground set is the perfect thing
for Juliana," said Brandi Cook, Dream direc-

Construction of the $6,000 playground
set began at 8 a.m. and continued straight
through in 90-degree heat until it was com-
pleted at around 5 p.m.
"As soon as I heard about the opportu-
' nity to help, I jumped at it. It didn't take long
to get these guys ,irindi-,.il uip. either," said
Jones of the store's volunteer efforts.
And how does miss Juliana feel about
her new gift? To say that Juliana is just ex-
cited about her dream play set would be an
understatement.

Juliana and her mother, Tami, stand with the volunteer group from Lowe's in front of the first half of the
playground.


"She loves it,"said Tami Wetmore, Ju-
liana's mother, noting that as soon as Juliana
saw the completed playground "she immedi-
ately got up there and ran across the bridge."
Juliana's favorite part is the tire swing.

Property tax forms sent out Aug. 11, says Week


Special to Clay Today .

GREEN COVE SPRINGS.- The 2006 no-
tice of proposed property tax forms will be
mailed to all .property owners, on Friday,
Aug. 11, according to the Clay County
property appraiser office.
Property owners are encouraged to


read the forms and verify the accuracy of
data, such as: property owner/owners"
name, mailing address, legal description
and exemptions.
An explanation as to the different
columns of taxes can be found on the re-
verse side of the form, and in the infor-
mational brochure included in the mailing.

Property Appraiser Wayne Weeks said
property owners should understand the tax
rates are set by the county taxing authorities.
The Property Appraiser's Office estimates
the market value of property, and then gen-
erates the tax bill based on those rates.
If a property owner does experience
an increase in their assessed value, the
reason may be one of the following: during
inventory, measurements were corrected
or additions, such as porches, garages,
swimming pools or enclosures are identi-
fied through building permits.
These additions may have been added
to the property some time ago, but for one
reason or another, they were not listed on
the appraiser's property record card.
If a property owner questions' the ac-






ORANGE PARK WESTSIDE


curacy of the assessed value, the first step
is usually an informal meeting with some-
one in the property appraiser's office.
This informal review can be, handled in
person, by telephone or by mail.
During or before this informal meet-
ing, the property owner should review the
property record to be sure all the infor-
mation is correct.
Almost all of the information in the ap-
praiser's office is available to the public.
The purpose at this informal review -
which is not yet an appeal - should be (1)
to verify the information on your property
record card, or correct it, (2) to make.sure
you understand how your value was arrived
at, (3) to discover if the value is fair, (4) to
find out if you qualify for any exemptions,
and (5) to be sure you .understand how to
file a formal appeal and how this office can
help you, if you still want an appeal. The
appraiser's office always prefers to settle
problems at the informal review.
The first level of formal appeal is to
the Value Adjustment Board. In order for
the appeal to be heard, a property owner
must first file a formal petition with the
Value Adjustment Board. Call the Clay
County Property Appraiser's Office, 477
Houston St. in Green Cove Springs,
at(904) 284-6305 for more information.

No Day But Today for young OP actor


By Natasha Khairullah
Staff Writer
There's only us...
There's only this ...
Forget regret or life is yours to miss....
No other road...
No other way...
No day but today...
These lyrics from the musical "RENT"
were sung by a young Orange Park actor at
New York's Stagedoor Manor this summer
as he portrayed the character of Roger in
one of the camp's student workshops. The
lyrics could have easily been written with
this aspiring performer in mind.
"For me, there is really no other day
like today. If I want to-get anywhere and if
I want to do this thing, there's no turning
back. This summer at Stagedoor played a
really big part in my making sure that act-
ing really is the road I want to take," said
the up-and-comer.
Joe Chisholm, 17, is a senior at
Ridgeview High School and already a well-
known figure in theatre circuits here in
Northeast Florida. This summer, he was af-
forded the second opportunity to .spend
three weeks at Stagedoor, the prominent
theater camp located in Loch Sheldrake,
N.Y. ,where he performed in the staged
workshop of the Broadway musical "RENT".


PHOTOS SPECIAL TO CLAY TODAY
Joe Chisholm reads the script for "RENT" durin- ther
production's staged workshop at Stagedoor Manor.


The workshop was a project in part-,
nership with Music Theatre International
(MTI) with the intention of testing the ma-
terial for high school accessibility. He per-
formed in front of the family of the late
Jonathon Larson, author of "RENT", as
well as several Broadway professionals.
"'RENT' is one. of my favorite shows
and I really like the music plus I think the
themes are really important today," said
Chisolm, "so being able to perform for
them was an amazing experience. I can't
even describe it."
Last year, Chisholm's first at Stage-
door, teen productions of "Aida" and "Miss

"Tommy" for .hich rh ,ir lsc, garnished a
best actor award.
"Tommy was really cool to be a part of,
also," he said. "It was something different
for me."
The theatrical journey all started for
Chisholm at the age 8 when he got his
start in live theatre at the Orange Park
Community Theatre production of "Honey
Suckle Hedge".


After that first initial bite from the
acting bug, he-continued to plow through
every medium for performance in the
North Florida area, including Theatre
Jacksonville, Limelight Theatre and
Players by the Sea. He has also per-
formed professionally at Alhambra Din-
ner Theatre in "The King and I" and
"Sound of Music".
Then came the opportunity at Stage-
door, the prestigious performing arts train-
ing center which has produced many
well-known Hollywood personalities like,
Mandy Moore, Natalie Portman, Robert
Downey Jr. and Zack Braff - just to name

a few. Chisholm says he now recognizes that
Stagedoor helped reaffirm that his decision
to pursue professional acting was the right
one. His director, Konnie Kittrell, who
serves as production director and head of
casting at Stagedoor Manor, agrees.
.'-"Joe really, for his age especially, has
uij.il poierilial." said Kittrell. "He grows
with every show. It's so amazing," she
added, noting that Chisholm is confident,
but quietly so, not a spotlight-seeker.
"I look forward to seeing him as one of
our star alumnis on our website."
But this high school senior, who some
might say has no need to engage in the
proletarian stuff, still maintains the life of.
a typical high school student: He's been a
part of several shows at.RHS, including
"Godspell", "Damn Yankees" and "Little


Shop of Horrors".
He's in the International Baccalaure-
ate program and holds leadership posi-
tions in several school clubs including the
Senior Board, National Honor Society,
History Honor Society and Drama Club.
Chisholm has also been a featured
vocal performer at many venues around
the area including various projects for
the City of Jacksonville, the Children's
Miracle Network and the American Can-
cer Society.
He has given back to his community
by performing at nursing homes and as-
sisted living centers in Clay County and
Jacksonville. He recently competed in
Clay County's Concert on the Green
where he won second place and a $1000
scholarship.
He is now preparing for the next stage
in his life - college. Chisholm will be au-
ditioning for several top Musical Theatre
and Drama Programs this fall at schools
around the country including Julliard,
Carnegie Mellon University, New York Uni-
versity and the University of Michigan.
"I think all these experiences so far
have given me a foundation of self-confi-
dence," he said.
. "They've shdwn me that this is where
I want to go."

repair process saving dollars


By Frank Taormina,
NAS Jax Public Affairs Specialist

* JACKSONVILLE --- Naval ,ir INAkA\IR)
Depot Jacksonville continues to put the
Warfighter first by completing a major F/A-
18 wing spar repair while providing cost
savings of $2.7 million.
Depot. personnel completed this un-
Sprecedenled repair by using a spare F/A-1.8
% wing that was available in the supply system.
: Wing Shop personnel. working in conjunction
with several trades. including engineering.
production control, quality assurance, the
CNC Machine Shop, and manufacturing plan-:
ning, performed this valuable repair.
The F/A-18 left, inner wing had a
cracked aft spar that prevented it from
being used on the aircraft. The solution to


this problem was, of course, to replace the
spar. This could not be accomplished since
there were no available spars.
Depot management decided to make a new
spar using reverse engineering. Buster
Hathcock, wing shop supervisor, ran the
hands-on portion of the repair and put his
talented artisans to work.
The first step w\,as to remove the aft
spar from the wing. Once thal was accom-n-
plished. the tedious job of manufacturing a
new\ spar began. Since there was no Local
Engineering Specilication to \iork from andi
prints were not readilN available. expensive
research vwas required.
Ruth Orr, ing shop w ork leader.
worked urelessl\ scouring the rech library
and researching technical publications and
Boeing Aircraft prints. Once the ptiublica-


tions and prints were located, the next stop
for the wing was the CNC Machine Shop.
- With the assistance of the Engineering
Department, Machine Shop personnel man-
ufactured a new spar. This was no small
task since new material and new tooling
was needed. Also, there were many obsta-
cles to overcome such as funding delays, ob-
_taining the required material, and material
certifications.
: The Jacksonville Depot was able to ac-
quire some tooling from NAVAIR Depot,
North Island. California and NAVAIR Depot,
Jac3ksonville's Oceana Detachment in Vir-
ginia BeachVa. .
What tooling couldn't be acquired had to
be developed arid itis too. \kas accom-
plished by the Machine Shop utilizing com-
puter programmin-g. WVing shop personnel


performed the critical job of installing the
repaired wing on the aircraft while other
maintenance work was being accomplished,
such as wiring the wing and pressure test-
ing the wing for fuel leaks.
Quality-assurance was incorporated
throughout the process. The successful
completion of this undertaking was also a
direct result of continuous process im-
provements implemented by the use of
Lean/Six Sigma and 5S/Shipshape concepts.
Once the process was perfected on the
left wing, a spar was built for the right wing
as well and was completed in just four
weels. Installation was completed in half
the time. In June of this ,ear, the lefi \ino
was shipped to NA\1 MR Depot. Jacksonrille's
Oceana Detachment and installed on an
F A-18 aircraft

- handful of dedicated volunteers.
Some of the activities included arts

they were split up according to age groups
and sent to various places to create sucI
arts and crafts as suncatchers and dour
hangars,-to music class to prepare for a
presentation for families and friends the
last day of VBS or to their classrooms to
learn their lessons. They also enrir,,'d a
nutritious lunch each (l:i. prepared t1v ihe

deer the kitchen this year.
"This is really fun being here. I'm re-
ally enjoying the arts and crafts classes.'
said 10-year-old Sarah Kinney as she dec-
orated a door hanging project.
VBS is run each year by volunteers who.
are given a curriculum to follow and who
adapt each of their lessons to their own in-
dividual teaching style. This year, 24 adults
and teens volunteered to help out with the
program. "Each year in February, I choose,
several different curriculums that I think
might work for us and present them to the
chapel staff. They will choose the one that
best suits our needs. After that, we deter-
mine how many volunteers we need and
start recruiting," said VBS Coordinator
Grace Heffner. "Volunteers don't need to be
experienced, the only criteria is that they
have to love children."
Each year, the program holds a spe-
cial mission project to collect items for an
organization that helps others. This year's
project was close to home as the.children

Joint Reserve Intelligence Center now open


By MC2(SW) Sunday Williams
NAS Jax Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE - Reserve Intelligence Area
13, (RIA-13) celebrated the grand opening
of the new RIA-13 / Joint Reserve Intelli-
gence Center, (JRIC) with a ribbon cutting
ceremony July 22 on Naval Air Station
Jacksonville, Fla.
The ceremony took place in front of
building 135, which several years ago
served as a meat freezer for the base com-
missary. Special guest speaker Rear Adm.
Ann Gilbride, commander Navy Reserve In-
telligence Command, explained her first re-
action to the idea of using the building to be
more comical than optimistic.
"When* I first saw the building, I
thought 'how are we going to make this a
pristine place of business?' It was old and
unclean and the 'smell was terrible," said'
Gilbride. "I kept thinking of the 'where's the
beef?" commercials." .
She then turned from comical to endearing.


"I can tell you now that the meat is still
right here iji this building. The meat is the
service men and women that made all of
this happen and turned this old meat freez-
er into a pristine and professional place to.
do business." �
Lt. Cmdr. Claudia Flores, the officer in
charge of RIA-1 3, initiated the project
three years ago. According to her she
could not be happier with the way the
building turned out and the space they
now have to do their jobs.
"I am very excited that I could see
everything come together before I transfer,"
said Flores. "Our staff worked so hard to
make this all work. We support the war
right from this building and now people can
come to work, and do their job comfortably
and know that they have everything they
need to accomplish their tasking."'
Both RIA-13 and the JRIC operated out
of building 966 where they had a total of
6,000 square feet. Out of the 6,000 square
feet, 4,000 square feet was used as special
compartmented information facility, (SCIF).

Lt. Col. Marty Kahnleft, Capt. Russell, Rear Adm. Gilbride, and Lt. Cmdr. Flores cut the ribbon to the new Re-
serve Intelligence Area 13 (RIA-13)/Joint Reserve Intelligence Center, (JRIC) July 22.


Intelligence analysts and targeteers shared
11 secret Internet protocol routing network,
(SIPRNET) systems, three open source in-
formation system, (OSIS) and 43 joint
worldwide intelligence communications sys-
tem, (JWICS) terminals. The new building
now has 18,000 square feet, 12,000-of
which, is SCIF space. The new JRIC facility
has 100 individual and collaborative work-.


spaces, which is currently configured with
30 SIPRNET terminals, 17 OSIS and 63
JWICS systems.
Capt. Gordon Russell, commander of
SRIA-13 said he has been so impressed with
the work of his staff, and is very excited
about the building. He thinks the new build-
ing will allow his staff to do their jobs bet-
ter and allow for expansion if needed.

Clay fire, police train

for terror attack


Clay Today staff
CAMP BLENDING - More than 60 Clay
County law enforcement and fire person-
nel participated in a terrorism drill
Wednesday, Aug. 9, at Camp Blanding.
The annual drill, held last year at the
Orange Park Mall, helps police and fire-
fighters learn how to effectively work to-
gether when responding to a mass
casualty situation, said Clay County Fire
Rescue spokesperson Bernita Bush.
"Everything went pretty well," Bush
said. "The objectives so far have been met.
We are gathering.some very valuable in-
formation and learning things that can
help us speed our response."
Funding for the drill came from the
U.S. Department of Homeland Sr,:uirwl by
way of the state Emergency Management
Agency. Each Florida county will receive
Sa portion of the funding, which is distrib-


uted based on population. Clay County
Emergency Management Director Jan
Chilson oversaw the event.
Bush said the scenario involved fire
personnel initially responding to smoke
coming from a building. However; it-be-
comes clear a biological agent has been
released, causing a dozen casualties.
The drill was held at collection of
buildings used by military personnel train-
ing at Camp Blanding.
Training of this type is necessary, even
for county-level responders, Bush said.
"The purpose to be able to respond ef-
fectively and safely to a weapons of mass
destruction event," Bush said.
Participating, in the drill were Fire
Rescue- personnel, Sheriff's Office
deputies and SWAT team menwber,, Or-
ange Park Fire Rescue, the county haz-.
ardous materials team, and Melrose
Volunteer Fire Rescue.

_tatiorns like Seminole Electric near Palat-
Ra lndi Orlando Ultiliiie .
Its largest line through the country, is its "A
Line," which operates southward from Jack-
sonville to a place named "Yukon" with a
1 0.000-foot siding on its.southern end at mile-
lpost 65'3,, where it crosses into Clay County.
From there, it's mostly a single track
through Orangre Piark. FDocto'r's Inlr[. Green
Cove Springs and onto Putnam Couni.v and
eventually Tampa, Orlando anild Miani.
Permitted train speeds range from 45
to 79mph. for Amtrak pasengerir trains. and
mostly 60 for freight trains.
Jacksonville-based CS\ spokesman
Gary Seas'i- said, "Cld Countr\ traffic data

These are used in industrial applicallonsi

them by our common carrier status."

ardous materials team conducts ongoing
training in preparaition for response to a

dents in [he ererit there vas a crash or
other emergency."
They have a contingency plan.
She said, "Our dispatch personnel
would contact CSX, so information on the
cargo for that train could be determined.
This infiornition would be f:orw- arde' i ,o re-
sponding fire and EMS units and would dic-
tate \\ ha immedidliaite sps would be needed
to contain and safeguard the site, as well as
any surr-,unding residents, businesses and

He added thai the iirr department has

Police say murder-suicide


results in two OP deaths


Clay Today staff
ORANGE PARK - A man and woman
found dead in a Wells Road apartment
Monday, Aug. 7, was the result of an ap-
parent murder-suicide, the Clay County
Sheriff's Office said.
The victims were identified as Jen-
nifer Adair, 31, of Orange Park, and Derek
Taylor, 28, of Jacksonville, the Sheriff's
Office said. The shooting happened at
Bluff House Apartments, 2040 Wells
Road, where Adair lived in Building 1.
Police, responding, to a call from
Adair's mother who could not reach her
daughter, found the two dead at about 7
p.m., said Sheriff's Office spokesperson
Mary Justino.
Investigators believe Taylor shot Adair
and then shot himself, said detective
Marty Cotchaleovitch. Officers checking
Taylor's residence also found notes he
wrote to family members alluding to the
possibility he would go through with the
.shootings, Cotchaleovitch said.
The couple also had an unusual rela-
tionship, he said.
"They were kind of like oil and water.
They didn't like each other but.-[he\ could-
n't be apart," he said.
There are no prior incidents of do-
mestic abuse involving the couple on
record with the Sheriff's Office, Justi-
no si&d.


Crash kills GCS man
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - A 62-year-
old Green Cove Springs man died Saturday,
July 30, in a head-on crash on County Road
209, the Clay County Sheriff's Office said.
The accident killed William R. Aultman,
of the 2200 block of Treasure Point Road,
and injured five other people, according to
a Sheriff's Office accident report.'
The accident happened at 2:18 p.m.
when a northbound car driven by Matthew
L. Cunningham, 26, of Green Cove Springs
struck the rear of another northbound ve-
hicle driven by Kelsay Nicole Padgett, 16,
of Green Cove Springs. Padgett told police
she was waiting for Aultman's car to pass
so she could turn onto Tranquility Lane
when her vehicle was struck from behind
and pushed off the road, the report says.
Cunningham's car then rolled the op-
posite direction into the path of Aultman's
southbound car, striking it head-on, the
report says.
William Aultman and Kelsay Padgett,
who suffered minor injuries, were taken by
ambulance to Orange Park Medical Center
where Aultman died a short time later..
Also transported were Charles Harris, 27,
a passenger in.-Cunningham's vehicle, and
a 13-year-old passenger in Padgett's car,
Zachary Padgett, the report says.

Two dogs left inside the car survived,
but required hospitalization overnight, the
report-says,
One of the dogs, Scruffy", a 2-year-old
Maltese/Poodle mix, is now available for
adoption as part of the CCSO's and Animal
Control's Cruelty to Kindness program.

fendant's mother and will be returned to

mal Control office at 269-6342 for details.

CCSO probes phone scam
GREEN COVE SPRINGS -The Clay Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office is investigating a phone
scam conducted by county jail inmates.
I Detectives discovered 833 collect calls
made from a cell block since July 18. Dur-
ing the-calls the participating inmates con-
fuse the call recipient byusing the Spanish
language prompt and then pretend to be �
employees of the phone company calling to
service the line, said Mary Justino, Sher-
iff's Office public information officer.
The victim is then told by the suspects
to press No. 72, which forwards the call and
allows the suspects to set up a line for mak-
ing multiple collect phone calls charged to
the victim's number, Justino said.
Anyone who thinks they have'been tar-
geted by this scam should report it imme-
ditji.l, to Sheriff's Office detective Cathi
Andrews at (904) 213-5914.
Clay County residents who think they
may have taken a call like this h:.u)iJi I'.:!,
close attention to their next phone bill and
look for any entries called "Global Tel Link".
It is unknown at this time hdw many
jail inmates participated in the scam from
the cell block, which holds eight inmates
at one time, Justino said.
The investigation continues and no ar-
rests have been made at this time.
Horse owner arrested
MIDDLEBURG - A Middleburg woman
is charged with animal abuse after police
said they found her
horse in extremely poor
physical condition.
The arrest of Shanon
Marie Oneill, 52, of the
4200 block of Robert
King -Road came
Wednesday, Aug. 2, after Shanon Marie
a sheriff's deputy visited Oneill.
her home, according to
an arrest report.
Oneill's horse, Sugar frosted oat, was
found to be malnourished, lame in the
front legs, dehydrated and had parasites.


AUGUST 10. 2006 * CLAY TODAY - 21A


There was no food or water in the 1-acre
area where it was kept, the report says,
and Oneill could not say when a veteri-
narian last saw the animal.
* After being examined by a veterinari-
an, the horse was taken to a-boarding fa-
cility and was being fed a special diet.
Oneill also has waived her ownership of
the horse, allowing it to be placed in a Clay
County Animal Control program called
Cruelty to Kindness.
Due to prolonged neglect, Sugar is
considered a special needs adoption and
although the vet says she can recover.
from the malnourishment, Sugar can
never be ridden again, said Sheriff's Office
spokesperson Mary Justino.

Centex Homes

goes green

Special to Clay Today
FLEMING ISLAND - Centex Homes
North Florida division is offering energy-
efficient homes. According to ENERGY
STAR, a government-backed program
helping businesses and individuals protect
the environment through superior energy
efficiency, homeowners in the North Flori-
da climate zone living in a one-story home
that meets ENERGY STAR criteria can
save an estimated $30 to $35 per month
and two-story homes can save up to $75
per month.
Centex traditional single-family homes
feature specific window placements, size
and heat transfer ratings to provide home-
owners with less radiant heat gain from the
summer sun, keeping homes nice and cool;
and reduce heat loss in the winter, keeping
them warm when needed. In addition, the
included energy-efficient insulation helps
homes remain at the homeowner's pre-
ferred temperature longer without the use
of air-conditioning or heat.
The Residences at Cypress Trace, Cy-
press Glen at Fleming Island Plantation
and Brookshire Landing are a few Centex
Homes communities .that approach cur-
rent standards for ENERGY STAR certifi-
cations. Ranging from the $203s to the
$423s, these communities are cited in
some of.the most desired locations with-
in the greater Jacksonville area including
Racetrack Road, Rampart Road and Flem-
ing Island Plantation.


It is my desire to make you feel welcome
and to acquaint you with Clay County.
!f you are new in the area, a phone call
will bring a prompt visit from me.
I have brochures, civic information, and to help
with your shopping needs, cards of introduction
and free gifts from local merchants.
Local merchants are also encouraged to inquire
about participation in the newcomer packets.

Fleming Island churches


Emmaus Road Church offers families a relaxed setting


(Editor's note: Patricia Boysen, a
member of the Emmaus Road Church on
Fleming Island, wrote this introductory
letter. Clay Today encourages all Fleming
Island churches to submit news and infor-
mation about their congregations.)
By Patricia Boysen
Sunday mornings you can find me in
church. That doesn't make me unique in
any way, nor do my beliefs. I am not
unique but my church is a different story.
For many years, I have wanted my family,
friends and co-workers to be involved with
God and for me that means being part of a
church family. In inviting people to church
I have encountered various forms of 'no'.
Folks get very creative in why they can't
be in church: wrong time, wrong clothes,
bad memories, stuffy old hymns, not fitting
the mold of church member and the list
goes on from there! These days, I can
counter most of those responses. Let me
tell you about my church.
Every Sunday morning at 10 o'clock,
we begin our worship service. Look at the
music team. It is led by a young man in
jeans and flip-flops. Two middle-aged men
and a very young man, accompany him.
The backup singers are teenaged girls.
Before we begin to sing, the young man
asks us to stand up and we do. Look
around, standing now praising God are
people who range in age from less than a
year to over 90. We stand and we sing
then we sit and listen to our pastor. He
sets a timer that he sometimes ignores
but no one cares because week after week
the message is powerful and delivered in
such a way that time doesn't matter. Look
at the faces of the people: some look un-
-comfortable; some look intrigued and
some, to be honest, look sleepy but re-
member those babies and those 90+
members. Sometimes our pastor uses

he delivers a great message.
When he is finished preaching we
pray, for ourselves and for others.
Then we come to the pivotal point of
the service where God comes to meet us

the very diverse music team. At that time
a prayer minister stands off to the side

Local coordinators would host exchange students in OP area


Special to Clay Today

ORANGE PARK-- Academic Year in Amer-

Coast-to-coast

bike ride

honored at BCC

In June, Cliff Boughton and his bicycle flew to San
Diego, Calif. There, he dipped the rear wheel of his
bike into the Pacific Ocean and started pedaling
east. Thirty-one days later, at Jacksonville Beach,
Boughton dipped his front wheel into the Atlantic
Ocean-and his ride was over. Tuesday, July 25,
iijr: was honored by the Board of County
Commissioners. Originally planned as a health trip
for himself, it became a ride for the cancer socie-
ty. Boughton said that there were times along his
trip when he felt like giving up. Then he would
think of those fighting cancer without the luxury
of quitting and it gave him strength to keep on
going. Here, Commissioner Pat McGovern reads a
resolution of condemnation as Boughton, his wife
and mother look on.

is looking for men and women to serve as
Local Coordinators and make a difference in
the lives of young people all over the world.
Each year, AYA welcomes more than


1,000 international students to the U.S. to
live with American host families and attend
local high schools. The process of finding
loving, caring host families around the


country and helping these students accli-
matize to the U.S. are responsibilities of an
AYA Local Coordinator (LC).
LCs are actively involved in making the
international exchange a wonderful experi-
ence for the students and families. They act
as a program liaison for AYA at a local level.
If you live in the Orange Park area and
would like to work with teenagers from
overseas, then perhaps being a LC is right
for you. As an LC, you will work closely
with the students that you place in com-
munities in your area. You will supervise
the students and meet with them on a reg-
ular basis to make sure they are getting the
most out of their time in the U.S.
AYA rewards Local Coordinators for the
number of placements they make over the.
course of a year. As a new LC, you can qual-
ify for a place at the 2006 AYA National
Meeting in Munich, Germany this November.
Local Coordinators also earn bonus points
that can be redeemed for travel or supplies
to enhance your work as an LC: digital cam-
era, computers, office supplies and business
cards. The effort you put into the position-
dictates the rewards you receive.
To-find out more about becoming an LC,

Boat strikes manatee in river, one man fatally injured


Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK - A 36-year-old Jack-
sonville man was fatally injured Thursday,
Aug. 3, when his boat struck a manatee
sign in the St. Johns River near the Doc-
tors Lake Bridge.
Arthur Isaac Ferrell was found with
critical injuries inside his 15-foot Ranger
bass boat about 11:30 p.m., said Karen
Parker, 'public information office for the
state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's Lake City office.
He died at 4:45 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5,
at Shands Jacksonville, Parker said.


Parker said Ferrell, who was alone in
the boat, had participated in a weekly
-bass tournament held earlier in the
evening at Whitey's Fish Camp.
However, the tournament had ended
at 8:15 p.m., well before the accident, said
Earl Lee, tournament director.
Lee said Ferrell was at the dock for
the conclusion because he gave the tour-
nament organizers a written form showing
he returned safely.
"He weighed in safely at 8:15 p.m.,"
Lee said. "In fact, he got five points for his
catch."
Ferrell turned in one bass weighing


1.5 pounds, he said.
This is the 11th year for the Thursday
night tournament, which started in April
and is averaging 48 boats fishing from 5
p.m. to dusk. It runs for 22 weeks, he said.
Ferrell was following another boat
back to the dock when he struck the sign
near the Doctors Lake Bridge, Parker
said.Ferrell's boat was traveling in ex-
cess of 25 mph when it struck the sign,
Parker said.
The other boater, whose name was un-
available, went searching for Ferrell after
he didn't arrive at the dock, Parker said.
An investigation is continuing. Parker


said investigators believe alcohol was a
contributing factor in the accident. -
"We've had very few problems over the
past 11 years. Three years ago we had one
get run over by his own boat and lost his
arm. But he's back fishing with us," Lee
said. "Then down in Green Cove Spring we
had some guys crash their boat, but they
were going too fast for conditions."
Lee said Ferrell was a regular this
year,, having missed only four Thursday
nights since the event began this year.
"He must have gone out after the
weigh-in. We can't do anything about
that," he said.

UNF student from FI spends summer abroad


By Clay Today staff
FLEMING ISLAND - Some college,
grads would be lucky if they could hon-
estly say that they have traveled to more
than a handful of states throughout the
United States.
One young Fleming Island resident,
however, has the privilege of boasting in-
ternational travels before being of legal
drinking age.
Nineteen-year-old Erin Traci Lee is offi-
cially a junior at the University of North
Florida after she completed her last six soph-
omore credits in France this summer as part
of a study abroad program, offered by the uni-
versity's Center for International Studies.
A Fleming Island resident from the day
she was born, Lee's international travels
had previously extended only as far as the
Island of Aruba in the Caribbean. Lee says
that this trip was more than just a study


abroad opportunity; instead, it was one of
growth, firsts and new beginnings.
"It was special for me because it was
the first time I was away from home and
on my own," said Lee.
The opportunity all came about last
year when Lee heard about the chance to
earn some credits while beach-watching
from. the mountains in Nice, gazing at the
stars from the Eiffel Tower, drinking wine
at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam
and soaking in cubism at the Tate Modern
in London.
As an international business major as,
well as a travel- junkie-hopeful, Lee says
the opportunity seemed too perfect to
pass up. The fact that she took two se-
mesters of college French already and
was about to enter her third upper-level
French unit didn't hurt either.
"I wanted to go to Europe I mean, I
really wanted to travel:..but France par-


ii:j uirl, is a Place I've always wanted to
visit," said Lee.
So off she went. The trip began on
June 1 in Paris and then zigzagged
through Europe for 30 days making stops
at Aix in South France, Amsterdam, Lon-
don and Nice.
"I would have to say that my favorite
thing was watching the France/Spain
World Cup game while in France," said
Lee, "because it was really cool to feel
that unity and energy."
In addition to earning credits and being
educated on the finer fabrics of European
fashions, Lee said the experience was also
one that cleared up.a few misconceptions
of Europeans as well, and she would rec-
ommend any 19-year-old to jump at the
chance to study abroad if they are able to.
"I would recommend it to anyone who
wants a change of cultural scenery," she
said.

Master Kam Lee and ,/ie_ L:-..i Lee wvre at rthe t r-,m Lee Martial Arts and Wellness Center in Fleming Island
for their July 25 opening.


Lee is martial arts professional who is-
skilled in Kung Fu and Tai Chi as well as
acupuncture and muscle therapy and last
month, he brought his expertise to the
Fleming Island area by opening the Kam
Lee Martial Arts and Wellness Center.
The Center opened on July 25 at
1:835-5 East West Parkway and is the sec-
ond center in Northeast Florida operated
by Lee and his staff.
He and his brother, KahSun Lee, cur-
rently operate another center in Jacksonville
at 103rd Street and Blanding Boulevard.
"We opened another center here be-
cause we though Fleming Island is a great
location, considering things are moving
very fast here," said Lee.
"Demographics-wise, we think a lot of
the adult and child populations here can
b,_-i.i-l !r ,ii our services," he added.
Lee says that Kung Fu and Tai Chi are
two of the most popular classes offered by
the Jacksonville center and. soon he ex-
re-i:.:. thri two classes to reign over the
new Fleming Island location, as well.
While people of any age can enjoy ei-
ther art at any time, Tai Chi is usually ideal


twice it implement theories and principles
to help expand the mind.
Master Lee has been a martial arts
specialist for over 30 years and said that
he definitely wasn't always the astute
master that he is now.
"When I .was younger and first started
out, (practicing Kung Fu) even though we
learned:the philosophies of the art, all we
wanted to do as boys was fight," jokes Lee
about his boyhood fervor for the art.
His training in the martial arts and
acupuncture began in 1973 in Batu Pahat,
Malaysia, and Singapore. He has lived and
taught in both Jacksonville and Orange
Park for the past 20 years.
He has made several appearances on
Jacksonville morning TV shows and has
also served as the chief judge for the Tai
Chi division of several international youth
championships.
For more information of the Kam Lee
Martial Arts and Wellness Center and the
programs offered there, call (904) 215-

Special to Clay Today

Winn-Dixie donates nearly 10,000
tickets to Jaguars home games to
thank teachers and. reward students
for improvements in academics, at-
titude and attendance

August is a time when students are
filled with the excitement of another*
school year. It's also a time when the
Jacksonville community is abuzz with the
anticipation of a new season for the
Jaguars. Today the excitement .sur-'
rounding education and ,-0fi .l.ii intersect-.
ed when the Jaguars, Winn-Dixie and,
superintendents from the First Coast. an-
nounced -an innovative program to honor
teachers and motivate students.
In a news conference at Alltel Stadi-
um, Winn-Dixie announced a new program
called "Winn-Dixie's A-Team," which hon-
ors teachers and rewards middle school
students for their hard work in academics,
good attendance and overall attitude. For
each of the 10 Jaguars home games this
season, Winn-Dixie will provide family
four-packs of tickets to students and two-
packs to teachers in Duval, St. Johns,
Clay, Flagler, Baker and Putnam Counties.
"Winn-Dixie's A-Team program is a fun
way to reward our students and teachers
for their hard work, while instilling and
promoting characteristics that will help
students become successful in both their -
personal and professional lives," said
Peter Lynch, Winn-Dixie's President and
CEO. "Winn-Dixie is committed to giving
back to.each of the communities we serve.
We hope that the A-Team will go a long
way toward thanking teachers and offer-


, ing students another motivation to achieve
their goals."
In addition to rewarding students, the
program also shows.appreciation to mid-
dle school teachers on the First Coast.
Winn-Dixie will provide 480 teachers per
game with two tickets for each of the four
evening games this season, rewarding a
total of 1,600 teachers.
"As we continue to work toward clos-
ing the educational gap. in Duval County,
programs like Winn-Dixie's A-Team are
important additions to our efforts," said
Dr. Joseph Wise, superintendent for Duval
Public Schools.' "The success of every
student is our number-one priority, so we
are extremely grateful for the opportune
ty to '. 1 i iil'i '. i ' in . i 1 ' ,- 1 .1111 iH .i re-
wards the hard work of our students,
while at the same time thanking our
teachers for their tireless rr,,, "
Winn-Dixie's A-Team allots 960 tickets
for each game, with tickets divided into
family four-packs for students-and two-
packs for teachers. Students in the Jack-
sonville area will attend six of the home
games, and teachers will attend four.
-Each of the participating .'ri, school
districts will be responsible for determin-
ing how the tickets will be distributed to
students and teachers.
"Our long-standing partnership with
Winn-Dixie has given many First Coast
residents the chance to attend Jaguars
games each season for the past several
years," said Wayne Weaver, chairman and
- CEO for the Jacksonville Jaguars. "We
are thrilled to be a part of Winn-Dixie's A-
Team, and look forward to seeing the stu-
dents and teachers in the stands."

Jaguars finish first week of camp

- set for pre-season opener


By Horace Davis
Sportswriter
ORANGE PARK- The Jacksonville Jaguars
finished the first week of training camp
with a live scrimmage that took place in
Alltel Stadium in front of 7,855 fans last
Saturday following a brief practice session
in the morning.
"We have a lot of work to do. I expect
us to be-a little crisper than we were of-
fensively. I thought defensively we did
, some really good things," said head coach
,.Jack Del Rio on the scrimmage. "The first
week of camp is over and we continue on."
The Jaguars then had a mock game on
Saturday morning where they simulated
the things they expect to see when they
start playing games for real. "We are be-
ginning to look like a professional team,"'
added Del Rio.
Del Rio has been pleased with the
progress of his offense through the first
week of training camp and commented
on second-round draft pick Maurice


Quarterback Byron Leftwich looks for a receiver during the scrimmage.


Jones-Drew.
"Maurice had a nice run and we just
missed him on a screen. It would have
been a gainer. He showed some of that ex-
plosive quality that he has. He has that
ability to get out:in the open field and then
really get going. So I thought we got a lit-
tle taste of that tonight," said Del Rio.
"It was a chance to go out there for real
with the lights on," said Jones-Drew. "I
made some pretty decent plays. I messed up
on a few things, but I have to go back out
there and make sure I don't do it again. I
never try to make the-same mistakes twice."
"We put ourselves in a lot of situa-
tions," said Del Rio. "We got to finish off
our first week of camp and go through a lot
of the mental work right there. We got a lot
of things worked out, a lot of kinks worked
out. We should be much smoother when we
go into our first preseason game."
Del Rio and the Jaguars open the pre-
season slate Saturday in Miami when they
face Nick Saban and the Dolphins.

Point leaders Glenn Blackman and
Joey Beach finished thiril to add to.their
point total.
"We caught a lot of fish, heck we land-
ed everything we saw. They were biting
well tonight, we found some fish this week
and when we went there tonight we
caught four or five of them. We culled a
fish here in the creek just before weigh-in
but couldn't come up with that kicker fish
but we're happy to be leading in points,"
said Beach.
Rounding out the money paying posi-
tions were Mark Gore and John Griffin in
fourth and Jerry Stalvey and JT Bernard
in fifth place.
"I had one that felt like seven pounds
and she hung me up on the back side of a
dock. I couldn't land her so I had to set-
tle for the five including a small one,"
said Gore.
"We had a long run south almost to
Palatka and had three solid fish in the
first 20-minutes with an old torn up lure,"
said Bernard.

Are you hunter enough?


Playing

Hooky

With Vance


Vance McCullogh
7VANCE8@COMCAST.NET


By Vance McCullough
Correspondent


Big game hunting is just plain hard. It
requires a lot of hard work if you're going
to do it right. It requires dedication and
time in the field. Most successful hunters
have knee-high grass in their yard and an
otherwise angelic wife whose patience has
long since worn thin by Thanksgiving.
Deer hunting in Florida can be espe-
cially challenging. If you seek a real test
of your patience, try bow hunting here. I
know hunters who have taken kudu in
Africa and when they try to explain what
an elusive target they are they compare
them to our whitetail deer. Understand-
ably, it often takes years before a hunter
arrow a whitetail.
One problem is the season itself,
which opens'when the air temperature
still reaches the 90's most afternoons.
Scent control is a major concern. An en-
tire segment of the hunting accessories in-
dustry deals with scent control and
elimination. A deer's sense of smell is un-_
fathomably better than ours. So after you
shower with unscented soap and use un-
scented deodorant and put a clean, scent-
free towel on the seat of your truck to keep
you smelling 'invisible' you must then step
out into the muggy air of late summer in
the Florida flat woods. Then you sweat, at


least a little. You find yourself hunting into
the wind as always, otherwise all of the
aforementioned precautions may have
been for naught.
Smelly issues aside, you scout, every
evening in late summer after work and on
Saturday (because there's no football on
now anyway, and how. else can you excuse
yourself from mowing the grtss?). You pat-.
tern the movements of some deer, maybe
does, which are legal to take during bow
season. You accept one of the great chal-
lenges of the hunting world and decide to
do it as did our native ancestors of cen-
turies past and take your winter's supply
of meat with stick and string.
On opening morning you ascend a tree
well before daylight, still needing sleep, as
you got very little the night before - nobody
ever sleeps well the night before a big hunt
or a fishing trip. All of the practice in the
yard has paid off, as has the scouting during
summer. You are the apex predator in these
woods; the top of the food chain; a deadly,
meat-for-the-family-producing force.
Then HE shows up - you know, the guy
in blue jeans and a red flannel shirt, a cig-
arette in one hand and a coffee mug in the
other with a climbing tree stand clinking.
noisily on his back as he whistles his way
right past you an hour after sunrise en
route to the tree where he will climb up,
take aim, and kill the buck of your dreams.
Oh yes, it has happened to me! The oblivi-
ous stooge didn't even have a clue that I
was there within a few feet of him. I
thought about putting an arrow in his back-
side but I decided that he wouldn't look so
great mounted on my wall. As if bow hunt-
ing wasn't tough enough. I guess that's part
of the fun of hunting public lands.


To experience this great thrill you need
to practice with your bow and arrow if you
haven't already started. If you don't have
room to set up a bail of hay or a lifelike 3D
deer target (or a target that looks curious-
ly like the .guy who always ambles past
with the stale smell of last night's beer on
him well after sunrise) in your yard, hunt-
ing goods retailers, such as Thrifty Out-
doors, often have indoor or outdoor space
where you can launch a few arrows.
Practice shooting in the clothes you
plan to hunt in, even if that includes jeans
and flannel. I like to simulate actual hunt-
ing situations by simply picking up the
bow and shooting from some semi-awk-
ward position, as often happens in the
field when a deer surprises you from an
.unexpected direction. You won't have time,
then to stretch or do any exercises. Just
pick it up cold, and take a.shot. When you
can hit a paper plate 3 times out of 3 tries
:from about 30 yards away, you should be
able to take a deer with confidence.
Start by getting good at ground level
and then be sure to take some shots from
a tree stand. Note that you will aim a tad
lower on the animal from a tree stand
than from the ground because gravity is
not pulling absolutely perpendicular to
your arrow's trajectory - yeah, I know, I
threw some physics mumbo jumbo at you
- just aim lower when shooting from an el-
evated position.'It's also important to re-
member when in a tree stand to maintain
you forni, but bend at.the-waist instead
dropping the bow lower or raising your
head. Anchor your hand at the same spot
on your face, and keep that bow hand
-steady, just bend at the waist.
While it is less common to do so in


Florida, you may find yourself i-11i i y an
animal, especially if you hunt some open
terrain. If so, you need to practice taking
shots from your knees, leaning around
trees, shooting through openings in bush-
es, and other crazy angles that may be en-
countered in the field.
One great technique for _-i'iir, your
bow shooting form right is 'blind bail
shooting', where a hay bail is shot from
relatively close so you can't miss it. With
eyes closed, you think only of how a prop-
er shot feels. There is no anxiety over hit-
ting a bull's-eye, nor any. other
self-imposed mental clutter or pressure.
Once you .train the body recognize what a
good shot feels like, you will shoot better
when your eyes are open.
Remember to find a consistent anchor
(the place where your shooting hand
meets your face). Also straighten the
spine, roll the shoulders back and squeeze
the shoulder blades together as you
stretch the string tight. The moment the
arrow leaves should be something of a
.surprise. Maintain focus on the target and
let the arrow go as you increase tension in
your back muscles. The concept of .follow
through is important here just as it is in
wing shooting with shotguns. Stay on your
target even after the arrow is released.
If you accept the challenge, bow. season
begins locally on September 23 and runs
.until October 22. Some wildlife manage-
ment areas have special djir uniilue to
those WMAs, so check the Florida hunting
regulations or My FWC.com/hunting. Also,
for those with a medieval streak, the-state
will permit hunting with crossbows from
October 23 through October .27. However,
.crossbows will not be allowed on WMAs.

Chamber Receives Recognition

at Annual Conference


The Florida Association of
Chamber Professionals recognized
the Clay County Chamber of Com-
merce at its annual conference in
Sarasota, FL. The Chamber re-
ceived the Outstanding Website
award and received its certification
designation.
The Chamber launched its new
website, www.claychamber.com, a
year ago. The site,, created and
powered by web904.com, boasts
many features including a down-
loadable membership application, a
photo gallery and the ability for
members to submit events and
photos for publication on the site.
The site gives users access to the.
Chamber calendar, to the commu-
nity calendar and to Chamber news.
"Our website is vital to promoting
our Chamber and its programs. To
be recognized for the work that
went into developing the site is an
honor," said Bob Krieger, Chairman
of the Board. -
The Clay County Chamber also
received it certification at the con-
ference. The Certified Chamber of
Commerce program sets stan-
dards of excellence for Chambers


The Chamber shows off its plaque for the Outstanding Website award. Pictured (from left to right)

in Florida. It recognized chambers
that have met these high stan-
dards. Certification benefits the
Clay County community because it.
strengthens free enterprise by pro-
tecting the business environment


and provides assurances to the
businesses joining the Clay County
Chamber that they are investing in
a not for profit corporation whose
revenues are utilized for business
and public good, not personal gain.

land High School. More than 100

nity.an opportunity to greet the new
teachers and to thank them for their
dedication to educating our county's
future workforce. "We want the teach-
ers who are new to Clay County to '
know this is a special place," said
Doug Fuzzell, Chairperson of the New
Teacher Welcome Breakfast Commit-
tee. "This breakfast will show our new
teachers that they not only have sup-
port from parents and from their
school, but from the business com-
munity as well."
During the event, Clay County's "
new teachers enjoyed a continental
breakfast and a tote bag full of school Two teachers register to win a door prize at the breakfast.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT


Highway Accessibility Ranks


High for Corporate Relocation


By Danita Andrews,Director of
Economic Development
It is important to stay abreast
of current national trends related
to economic development in
order to increase our ability to at-
tract companies to Clay County.
The goal is to work every angle
that leads to quality employment 0
opportunities for our residents.. ,
Area Development's 20th annual
survey of corporate executives was
published in February 2006.-This re-
port benchmarks the top thirty-five
site location decision criteria on an
annual basis and provides a good
synopsis of what is most important
to corporate executives: making
plans for possible new facility reloca-
tions and expansions. Here are the
top ten criteria in order of rankings.
. Highway accessibility was number
one, receiving a rating of 91.4 percent,
which reveals that companies all
across the country place a high pri-
ority on rapid and efficient ways of
both getting' their materials and
goods to market as well as their em-
ployees to and from work.-
Labor costs and the availability of
skilled workers ranked number two
and three respectively. Workforce is
often one of the largest costs of
doing business and a major concern
to employers. Not only do employers
need to keep salaries competitive,
they have to contend with rising
healthcare and benefit costs as well.
However, the survey also revealed


that another related
topic, training programs,
increased significantly
during the past year and
|. ranked almost nine per-
- ' centage points higher
P-. - 1 than last year's survey.
We concur that training
greatly compliments a,
anitla Andrews firm's workforce capabil-
ity, increases both produc-
tion and efficiency and enhances skill
levels across the board. As a matter
of fact, the workforce issues are very
much in line with what Clay County's
existing businesses are telling us.
State and local incentives follow at
fourth with an 86 percent rating in
importance, which did not change,
from the previous year. The report
highlighted tax exemptions and tax
credits as two of the most valuable
types of incentives for companies;
this also fits with our findings that
companies first determine the best
locations related to the cost of doing
business and then inquire about what
state and local incentives are avail-
able to help offset their potential re-
location. We find incentives help keep
our community competitive with the
rest of the country and are an impor-
tant aspect of "closing the deal."
The availability of high speed inter-
net access came in fifth place in the
survey and was noted as a critical fac-
tor in conducting transactions with
speed. Corporate tax rates ranked
sixth and also compliment the incen-
tives factor noted earlier. Occupancy


/ and construction costs followed with
an overall rating of 83.6 percent. It
was noted that this factor did not
change from the previous survey.
Moreover, the report indicated
that nearly 75% of survey respon-
dents believe having an available
building is an important considera-
tion in their location decision. Prox-
imity to major markets was ranked at
83.2 percent, which is a competitive
factor for companies in -delivering
their products or services to market
as quickly as possible to increase
their bottom line overall. This factor
jumped from fourteenth to ninth
place in rankings from 2004 to 2005.
Finally, energy availability and
costs completes thelist of top ten fac-
tors. The survey noted this was one
of the more surprising rankings given
current world events and escalating

natural gas and fuel costs overall;
however companies are also continu-
ing to look for ways to lower their pro-
duction costs and increase efficiency
across the board which give rise to
implementing lean concepts for all
types of operations.
Overall, the information revealed
in this corporate survey is of great
interest to our office as we launch
the first direct mail marketing cam-
paign'for site consultants and target
the types of business that are com-
patible with Clay County's attrib-
utes and current site availability. We
are certainly taking note of these
-top ten factors to help align our pro-
grams and implementation of the
countywide strategic plan to signifi-
cantly increase the success of our
economic development initiative for
Clay County.

August "Tourism Buzz!" ]


Mr. Frank "Bud"
Nocera, President and
Chief Executive Offi-
cer for VISIT FLORI-
DA, was the guest . .
speaker at the July ..
12th meeting of the
Clay County Tourism .,
Advisory Board meet-
ing. Mr. Nocera dis- EveSzymanski
cussed VISIT FLORIDA programs
and how they impact Clay County
tourism and vice versa. He present-
ed several opportunities for our
county. Mr. Nocera used to be with
the Jacksonville Convention and Vis-
itors Bureau and is very familiar with
Clay County.

Tourism Grant
One way VISIT FLORIDA is help-
ing Clay is by providing grants. The
Chamber's Tourism Division was
awarded a grant for $2,500 to help its
marketing efforts during the 2006-
2007 fiscal year. "The members of the
Tourism Board are thrilled with the
grant money," said Brian Sponaugle,
chairperson of the Tourism & Film
Advisory Board. "These funds will be
used for printing a Clay County
Tourism Map making it easier for vis-
itors to find those types of locations
of interest. It will help us better po-
sition Clay County as a desirable des-
tination."

TDC Applications
Twenty nine applications were re-
ceived by the Clay County Tourist
Development Council (TDC) by the
new deadline of July 1, 2006. These
were for events occurring between
October 1, 2006 and September 30,


2007. This is the first time the TDC
required all events submit their ap-
plications at one time instead of
staggered throughout the year: A
community calendar of events with
information will be available sooner
for better planning and promotion.
Planners will have longer lead time
to find sponsors, vendors and vol-
unteers. The number of annual
events and their impact for tourism
in Clay County is growing and is very
exciting. Most of these applications
are for the larger and annual events.
They do not include all of the events
in Clay County. There were approxi-
mately 100 events listed on the Clay
County Community Calendar from
Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2006. The
TDC will be meeting in August and
September in order to review and
make recommendations to the
Board of County Commissioners,for
the promotional funding requests.

Tourism Survey
In an effort to better serve the
tourism efforts of Clay County, the
Chamber's Tourism and Film Advi-
sory Board took the initiative and
sent out a survey to other tourism of-
fices and convention & visitors bu-
reaus in Florida. It is the time of the
.year for creating our product devel-
opment plan for next year, and we
wanted to get some input from other
counties. Our questions had to do
with how they handle funding for
events, how they differentiate be-
tween events that have real tourism
impact and other more local events
that improve the quality of life for our
citizens. Do they have "bid pools" for
offering an incentive to organizers to

ule to open this fall.


bring their event into the
county? Do they work with
both profit and non-profit -
organizations, and do they
have a set of values that de-
termine the level of qualifi-
cations? We will share the .
results next month. ',,

Sleep Inn and Suites
-The new Sleep Inn and
Suites is coming along nice- '
ly! It's part of the Choice Ho- '
tels, Inc. franchise and will
have 90 suites, a boardroom
and all the good things Sleep
Inns are noted for. We look Southern I
forward to its opening in the grounds Se
late fall and welcoming it to
our family of Clay County accommo-
dations.

Monster Trucks
The Monster Truck Show is just
around the-corner. Six trucks are
signed and there's a possibility of 2
more joining the event this year at
the Clay County Fairgrounds on Sep-
tember 15, 16, & 17! The secondary
act will be Pro Stadium trucks!
These trucks are the smaller equiva-
lent of monster trucks and are simi-
lar to the "Baja" trucks you would see
out West in the sand dunes.


Monster Truck ShoWdowdn returns to the Fair-
npt. 15-16.

Our Truck "Show 'n Shine" contest
has been expanded. It is now called
the "SMTS Car, Truck & Motorcycle
Show" and will be held Saturday
morning in conjunction with the mon-
ster truck show. This event has al-
ready been published in .national
magazines in their calendar sections,
so we hope to have a huge turnout.
The gates open at 6:00 p.m. on Fri-
day & Saturday and the show starts
at 8:00 p.m. On Sunday, the gates
open at noon and the show starts at
2:00 p.m. The Pit Party is one hour
before show time!


Bud Nocera, President of VISITFORIDA, speaks to the Tourism and Film Advisory Board during its
July meeting.

Hector Coraminas is the winner of the Great Clay County Bug Out contest for July.


Hector Coraminas of D & H
Embroidery was our winner of a
$100 Savings Bond on July 20th!
He spotted the Tourism Bug

Small Business


Resource Center is


Moving Forward


By Pam Russell
A God Send Ministries & Chairman, Small
Business Resource Center Committee
The Chamber opened its small
business resource center in Febru-
ary 2005.. The goal of the center is
to provide a physical location with-
in the Chamber where small busi-
ness owners can find resources to
assist them in starting or expanding
their business.
The center offers technology re-
sources and published materials -in-
cluding business and industry.
publications, how-to-books, brochures
and catalogs. Additionally, visitors will
find a computer-terminal with high-
speed internet access and book-
marked small business favorites.
The newly revitalized committee
is now ready to move forward with
the center and see the dreams of
those who worked to get it in place


realized. The committee is in the
process of updating the. room's
many resources. In order to do that
though, the center needs sponsors
and business professionals who are
willing to donate their time and ex-
pertise to help a small business
owner get off on the right foot.
In an. effort to make the re-
sources available known to the
public, there will be. free Starting
Your Business seminars at the Clay
County Library every first Friday of
the month at 11:00 a.m. The thrust
of the seminars is to lead the busi-
ness owner to the resource center
to take advantage.of free services
so they can spend their dollars
elsewhere.
If you're interested in helping the
Small Business Resource Center
committee, contact Greg Voss at
264-7503 or at gvoss@clavcham-

County Jail and Archives followed by
a trip to the Clay County Historic
Museum and Old Courthouse. From

lunch the class traveled to St. Mar-,
garet's Church arid had a great his-
tory lesson from Janet Robinson.

Leadership Clay 2006

Finalizes Project


The 2006 Leadership Clay
class has partnered up with the
Clay County Habitat for Human-
ity for its Class Project. The
class will work with Habitat to
add an additional feature to
what they currently offer.
Habitat is known for building
and renovating affordable hous-
ing: However, they currently do
not furnish the houses. The class
will work on building partner-
ships with furniture stores, ap-
pliance outlets, and other
organizations that may be able
to offer assistance to the Habitat
organization.
"What Habitat does for the
community is already widely
known," said Dr. Charles Hark-
ness with St. Vincent's and the
President of the Leadership Clay.


2006 Class. "What we are at-
tempting to do is set long-term
arrangements between Habitat
for Humanity and some of the or-
ganizations that are interested in
being a part of this great organi-
zation for a long time to come."
If you are interested in learn-
ing how your company can help
with this project, please contact
the Chamber at 264-2651.

ByFrank RVllJr.
President Florlda Chamber of Commerce
Another special interest-backed
constitutional amendment is only
$1.5 million away from making the
2008 ballot. Only, we're not talking
about pregnant pigs or legalizing
drugs, we're talking about killing jobs
and shutting down important proj-
ects such as transportation improve-
ment and even affordable housing
solutions.
On June 22, the Florida Supreme
Court ruled that the "Hometown
Democracy" amendment's language
could be included on the 2008 ballot.
Now that it has met the Supreme
Court's single-subject requirement
and the Attorney General's review,
all that's left before making it on the
2008 ballot is to collect the required
611,009 signatures. We expect the
special interests behind this initia-
tive to hire out-of-state, paid signa-
ture gathering firms to ensure that
the amendment makes it on the bal-
lot.
Hometown Democracy, the group
behind the amendment, is a front
group for environmentalists who
want to turn representative democ-
racy on its ear. The' group opposes
constitutional amendment reform
and is spearheading an amendment
that would kill jobs and stop
progress in Florida.
This proposed initiative would re-
quire voters to approve every pro-
posed change to a local government's
comprehensive plan, which serves as
a blueprint for development including
the building of new schools, hospitals
or other necessary development. The
ramifications would be disastrous to
Florida's business climate, as job cre-
ation would be eliminated and con-
struction would come to a halt. How
will we accommodate the 1,100 new
residents that move to Florida each
day without jobs and housing?
There is already local control over
comprehensive plan changes. The
special interests don't want you to
know that:
* Local officials (not state govern-


ment or special interests) already
manage the process to change a
comprehensive plan.
* These locally elected officials
have the experience that allows
them to make complex growth deci-
sions.
* If this'passes, special interests
will clog local governments with cost-
ly campaigns to defeat or pass com-
prehensive plan changes.
* The resulting additional special
elections will be a very expensive
burden on local taxpayers.
Supporters will try and convince
Floridians that this initiative will not
result in special elections. Take Palm
Beach County, for example, where
1,500 plan changes were proposed in
2003. The only alternative to special
elections - waiting up to two years to
vote on an excessive number of pro-
posals in a regular election - isn't re-
alistic or probable.
The bottom line is that Home-
town Democracy does not belong in
.the Florida Constitution. The pro-
posed amendment is just another ex-
ample of special interest groups
using Florida's broken ballot initia-
tive process to amend our state Con-
stitution for their benefit. The
Florida Chamber is actively monitor-
ing this initiative as well as nearly 40
other proposed ballot initiatives at-
tempting to make the 2008 ballot.
There are two ways you can help
us defeat the Hometown Democracy:
* Vote "YES" on Amendment 3 this
November. If voters approve Amend-
ment 3, all future constitutional
amendments must receive at least 60
percent of the vote for approval.
* Sign up for ChamberWatch at
www.floridachamber.com, to stay in-
formed on the issue and find out
more about how you can help.
Together, we can defeat this pro-
posed amendment and safeguard
Florida's future.

the ballot, visit www.VoteSmart-
