FDOT agrees: Pink route is best


By Debbie Israel Messer
Staff Writer
ORANGE PARK - Five months after the
Clay and St. Johns Board of County Com-
missioners each adopted resolutions stat-
ing their preference for the pink route, the
Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) announced it too would use the
route as the "preferred route."
No new route was unveiled as was


stated in last week's meeting with Clay
BCC members, FDOT Secretary Denver
Stutler and District Two Director of Trans-
portation Larry Parks.
At a Tuesday, Aug. 29, workshop held
by FDOT to present information about the
route, Parks said, "if I said there would be
a new route, I misspoke. I meant to say that
the preferred route would be announced."
The pink route was one of four routes
subject to public review during the last


two years.
The workshop was held at St. John's
Community College's Thrasher-Horne Cen-
ter in Orange Park. FDOT spokesperson
Gina Busscher said 288 people signed in
at the workshop.
One of those attending, Bill Garrison,
a Transportation Authority Committee
member, said he was impressed with the

Airport security measures more like science fiction


We live in a dangerous world but, until
we come face to face with it, it's jut. o:uti
there somewhere, just barely in our con-
sciousness. Television brays forth in esca-
lating decibels our -elevated level of
security. Newspaper headlines-scream
about this alert or another. In psychologi-
cal parlance, we have become desensitized.
Until, all at once, it breaks through 6ur
preoccupation with other things and re-
veals itself in all its ugliness.
Monday night I went to the airport to
pick up Cody, who was flying in from Mis-
sissippi. While I was.still on the approach
road, the signs began to appear; the air-
port is operating under a condition of
heightened security. Deodorants, lotions,
etc., etc, etc, were prohibited.
Inside, bold yellow signs proclaimed
that the airport was on highest level of
alert and anyone seeing someone acting
suspiciously was beseeched to report the-
fact to security. There wouldbe no prob-


lem locating a security person; one could
not look in any direction without spotting
people wearing yellow vests with Securi-
ty emblazoned across them.
From my earliest teens, I have been a
science fiction buff. Many times I have
read of a future Earth in which terror ex-
isted on one side and extreme security on
the other. Residents on the "good" side
were subject to all sorts of security meas-
ures from mere warnings, to restrictions


to requirements to be in possession of per-
sonal identification - ID cards - at all
times.
Monday night, it was like stepping into
the pages of a book. Much of what I read
about so many years ago had achieved re-
ality. Almost the only missing component
was the ID card. And a national ID card is
already under consideration in the same
Congress that was created by the Constitu-
tion that created the Bill of Rights. Oh, my!

Clay Chamber holds 'intense' annual retreat


By Jon Cantrell
Publisher

ORLANDO " This past week, 32 mem-
bers of the Clay County Chamber of Com-
merce spent two intense days in Sanford
Florida for the annual Board Retreat. The
retreat was called "Building Business To-
gether".
Why Sanford, you might ask.. Maybe
because the Seminole County Regional
Chamber of Commerce CEO President
Diane Parker, her team, along with Coun-
ty Commissioner Randy Morris came out-
and spent some prime time sharing how
our counties align similar in our regions,
and how they have moved to the next level
in cooperativeefforts between Chamber,
County,. City and Community to solve the
growing transportation, education and'
quality of life issues.
"Managing the growth is the key", said
County Commissioner Morris. The part-.
nership between Chamber, Community,
town and County officials is the overall key
to developing plans and implementing now
for our growth of tomorrow.

and film development groups. The groups

genson, owner of an International Learn-

Clay Chamber President Kellie Jo Kil-
berg gave a "State of the Chamber" pres-
entationi covering remarkable and in depth
facts and figures on the organization and
the membership results. The overview of
the accomplishments by our relatively
small Chamber team was viewed a great
step towards building a bond or partner-
ship with the community. This ended day 1.
Day. two, the group was blessed by the
words and wisdom of nationally-acclaimed
U.S. moderator Keith Woods. Woods facil-
itated the group interjecting a keen look at
trends across America. He said we need

long-term vision. He talked about the im-
portance of new members becoming im-
mersed in the Chamber and that long-time
members need to be recognized for their
continued support. He also explained that
candor and honesty are critical with mem-.
bership. Any issues, no matter how large
or trivial need to be discussed directly
.with Chamber President Kellie Jo Killberg
or Chairman of the board Ted McGowan.
The overall theme of the 2-day retreat.
ended up being "One Voice" and Unity.
When our membership can all come to-
.gether in agreement and focus on major
community issues we will begin to achieve
great things: Our Chamber is at an all. time.

Please remember that this is an opin-
ion column and'it is my personal opinion,
not an official position of the paper.
'I simply do notobelieve that we can es-
cape the security ridden world of old sci-
ence fiction unless we eradicate the
sources of terrorism. I realize that there
is a vocal opposition to this opinion and I
really do understand where they are com-
ing from. If every nation on Earth were to
become convinced that they should make
the planet a hostile environment for ter-
ror, it would be an ideal solution. Until
then, we have to settle for the imperfect.
Cody missed his connection in Atlanta
and didn't arrive until Tuesday morning.
The same security conditions prevailed
and,'even though he and his girlfriend
were somewhat inconvenienced by what
they could take on the plane, I couldn't
help but. appreciate the fact that they
were safer.
I hope I live to see better days.

School Board postpones concurrency agreement approval


By Debbie Israel Messer
Staff Writer
FLEMING ISLAND - The Clay County
School board wants one more shot at the
proposed Interlocal Agreement (ILA) that
will address school concurrency. *
Board members have spent several
sessions, and many hours, in the last cou-
ple weeks reviewing the components need-
ed to comply with school concurrency
requirements now imposed by the state.
The ILA is the document that will ce-
ment the process by which concurrency is
reached, including the process, the levels-
of service, school facilities' e .lilii. and
projected capacities, and the means of re-
solving differences
School district staff had presented
members with a recommended agreement
several weeks ago.with the intention of
having board approval at their special
meeting held Monday, August 28.
Having the interlocal agreement ap-
proved would have meant at least-partial-
ly meeting the September 1 grant deadline
set for Clay County by the State Depart-
ment of Community Affairs (DCA).
That deadline was set to meet grant
requirements associated with the grant
given to Clay County for the purpose of
completing the concurrency requirements.
According to Clay County Planning Di-
rector Thad Crowe, not all is lost.
At the Monday meeting, -there .was
concern that missing the deadline would

compromise the county's grant.
Instead, Crow says DCA is finding that
other jurisdictions in the state are having
similar problems meeting the tight dead-
line for approval.
That being the case DCA has decided
to withhold payment of the last progress
payment for the grant until receipt of
proof that the ILA has been approved by
the school board, the county and the other
local governments as opposed to pulling
the grant
Clay County will take the draft as it is
currently proposed and send that to DCA as
proof of their current progress with the filal
ILA, as executed by the local governments
to be sent after action has been taken.
Hearings by the school board, the
county, Orange Park, Keystone Heights
and Green Cove Springs will all take place
in September. * -.
The first review by another agency is
due on September. 5 by the Orange Park
Town Council.
Crowe said the County would ask the
council to approve the agreement but ac-
knowledge that they may have to take an-
other action later in the month if the ILA
is changed.
At this point, it appears that the
agreement will change based on questions
raised by Board member Wayne Bolla, and
the district's attorney Bruce Bickner..
Board members spent considerable
time with the county's consultants from
Kimley Home addressing how levels of


of the Clay County Medical Society,
and nationally has been active in his
specialty society where he serves on
the Board of Councilors of the Ameri-
can Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
Dr. Hutton believes in the building
blocks of legislative activism, mem-
bership development, and fiscal re-
sponsibility.
He pledges his commitment to
keeping the FMA the leader in patient
and physician advocacy. One of his pri-
mary goals this year will be to address
health care of the uninsured and un-
derinsured as well as the issue of dis-
parities in health care among minority
populations.
The Florida Medical Association is
the largest, most effective organization
representing the interests of all Flori-
da physicians, and their patients.
Based in Tallahassee, the FMA pro-
vfdes its more than 16,000 member
doctors with a strong voice and active
-representation in state legislation,
medical economics, practice issues
and medical, ethical, and legal affairs.

service would be set, particularly within
the- five-year time frame required for the
capital improvement element.
A sticking point for most of.the board
members is the current DCA interpretation
that the -level of service for the-district's
schools may rise to the level of the highest
(meaning most impacted) level of service.
So, for example, at the Monday meet-
ing district staff said that Fleming Island
High School (FfHS) will rise to at least
195% (200% as determined on 08-30-06).
With the DCA interpretation, while the
county's desired level of service is 100%,
the other high schools would be required
to accept students until they were at the
worst level i.e. that of FIHS).
The same projection would occur at
every level, elementary, junior high etc. "
"We have a real problem with FIHS. It
is so drastic we need to work on it,," said

submitted to DCA, must show improvement
during the course of the five-year period.
Because they cannot raise the level of
service during that period, only lower it,
the district has chosen to set the levels of
service higher than what exists for some
of the district's schools.
The.board decided to separate out FIHS
from the other highlschools, as permitted by
DCA for schools that are so different from
other .schools in the district, for the pur-
poses of determining concurrency.
One of the other provisions reviewed
by the board but delayed for action, was a
determination of actions to be taken to re-
duce those levels, some of which included
changing service areas for schools and
closing a school.

finally, although we no longer operate a
shelter facility of our own, the organizations
continues to work closely with the county's
animal control on cruelty cases, provides
technical training as requested and lends,
assistance in any way possible to their
most under appreciated cause.
In regards to R. Whitesnake's lost pet, it
is the sincere wish of the Society that pet
and owner are reunited. Although the Soci-
ety has always maintained a lost and found
log to assist with the process, there is no
equal to the power of microchipping and
proper identification to help bring a lost pet
home. Both of which the Society eagerly
provides each and every day in our clinic.

Kuwait. . ...
He said the unit is not expected to enter
Iraq, although he may be required to fly
some missions into the war-torn country.
Van Zant said voters know his military
service very well. He was deployed in
Kuwait in 1998 when he was sworn in for
his first term, and he was nearly deployed
again in 2001 in Bosnia and 2003. :
He said a high-speed modem and the
school board-issued laptop computer will
allow him to attend meetings. The board's
electronic agenda also allows him to re-
ceive all documents the other board mem-
bers receive.
"I will have more time to do my school
board job ... than I would if I even were at
home," he said. "Nobody is shooting at you
in Kuwait. In Kuwait you have a lot of time
in your hands."


Lake, however, said Van Zant should
have been more upfront with board mem-
bers and voters.
"During the course of this campaign, I
have spoken to thousands of people - in-
cluding current, and retired military per-
sonnel - their opinions varied-on many
issues regarding Clay County but were
unanimous about one thing, Charlie Van
Zant should have withdrawn from this
race when he learned of his move to Ok-
lahoma," Lake said. "They say it would
have been the right thing for him to do for
our children. Instead Van Zant chose to do
what was best for him."
Van Zant counters that he has given
the issue plenty of thought, including two
full days of prayer early this year when
his wife and children were out of town.
"I just didn't feel a peace from God
about abandoning this position. I don't
care how smart how somebody is it takes
a good year to figure things out when you
first get into office," he said. "By the time
they get it figured out I will be back."

Letters
FROM PAGE 4A �
name more fitting than "Humane Society."
Janet Keskinen,
Board President
Clay Humane Society

See for yourself at
Cecil Comm. Center
Dear Editor:
Cecil Commerce Center has not been
sitting *t. ii:. .in the dust since the Navy
abandoned it.
When the Navy walked away, every
Westsider was unhappy. Shoot, every Jack-
sonvillian. every Floridia.n,; every sailor ever
stationed there silently wept a. little for the
demise of something special.
But, being the master of-canned wit,
emperor of trivia, exalted finder of all things
cliche, I must repeat: "That was then, and
this is now.".
Last Friday, I took a tour of Cecil'Com-
merce Center. The tour was sponsored by
Citizens Planning Advisory Committee, Zone
4, CPAC and the Westside Business Leaders
Association. You know what I.found? Com-
merce! .
If you or a relative was ever stationed
at Cecil Field, you owe it to yourself to come
take a look at what Cecil has become and its
potential for the future.
I thought I knew the old place pretty
well. I was stationed at Cecil from 1980 to
mid 1986. I was an air traffic control-facil-
ity watch supervisor. I know that airport like
the back of my hand.
My wife was stationed at VA-174, in the
big old brownish-yellow double hangar. Still
there, but used by Boeing today.


Now, it is full of.FA-18s; Charlie models
through the Super Hornets. Next door, sev-
eral big Navy aircraft are cattycornered into
a hangar too small to fit them straight in.
Next door to those was a hangar so
thrilling to look at for an old aviation buff
like myself, that I had goose bumps.
When I was stationed at Cecil, this
hangar was big enough to hold three
squadrons of A-7s and FA-18s. It was a
baby hangar compared to the monster
-Flightstar has turned it into. The aviation
maintenance and modification facility can
handle nine - count them again, NINE Boe-
ing 727s or Boeing 757s, each of which can
carry about 200 passengers.
' Our Flightstar tour guide said thal busi-
ness is so good that, if they had another
hangar, they could double the 500 employ-
ees working there now and add .:,,.,ii.i rIliin
aircraft; there, is that much work available
to them.
Down the flight line is LOgistic F: ,. i:
International, now' ,,,. ri inipl . as LSI, an
employee owned aviation training company.
From their web site:
Initially established to meet the aviation
training and support needs of foreign mili-
taries operating U.S. Navy aircraft and sys-
tems, LSI has developed an enviable-
reputation for innovation, responsiveness,,
and reliability among a customer base.that
includes the U.S. Department of Defense,
Department of Homeland Security, numer-
ous foreign militaries, and the largest mili-
tary aircraft manufacturing and Defense
companies in the United States.
Using another old cliche: "State of the
art" is selling this innovative company short.
LSI employs 500 or so college gradu-
ates, highly trained technicians teaching
military people across the world to operate
some of the most complex equipment man-
ufactured today.
Cecil Commerce Center with its own


fire department, police force, tenants occu-
pying every building already functions as a
multi- military, civilian center with such
varied services as Homeland Security,
Coast Guard and Army Air National Guard.
Another focal point at Cecil is the Avia-
tion School of Excellence developed by
Florida Community College at Jacksonville.
They have contracts to train workers in a
myriad of aviation occupation skills includ-
ing air traffic control. Due to the projected
needs of businesses at Cecil to move goods
to the Jacksonville port, FCCJ is offering a .
tractor-trailer driving course.
. The Naval Aviation Depot leases space
for 500 well-paid engineers and other Navy
civilian employees and contractors.
There are great things going on at the
former "Yellow water test track" We saw the
acreage being purchased by
Bridgestone/Firestone, the acreage for a
huge new FCCJ West Campus, a phenome-
nal world-class Equestrian Center (which is
already booked 40 of 52 weekends next -

year) and plenty of room for big businesses
like Wal-Mart.
At Cecil, some parts of the old base re-
main, but no barracks, 0-club or Chief's
quarters, no semi-circle of concrete enlist-
ed barracks, no clubs, no chow halls, no
admin.building, all of it reduced to rubble
along with CLAW-1 and ASWWINGSLANT.
What remains is-the promise of a future
filled with exciting prospects in aerospace
technologies.,A spaceport is a very real pos-
sibility; what was once two very different
methods of transport are rapidly becoming
one. Aircraft that take off like a fixed wing
aircraft and continue all the way into space.
This is the Cecil Commerce Center the
Westside should want and so. should the
citizens of the rest of Jacksonville and of
Florida.
Come and look what is happening at the
Commerce Center before, you vote to take a
giant step backwards.

Clay Today staff
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - Separate trial
dates are set later this year for Christy
Fitzgerald, who was forced to-vacate her
Clay County Commission sea ,-iflrr li if,
indicted by a grand jury.
Fitzgerald, 46, of Green Cove Springs,
has an Oct. 30 trial date on five misde-
meanor-counts of petlS ith-fr. while a Nov. Chi
27 date is scheduled for a third-degree
felony count of public servant misconduct.
": Assistant Stat'eA,\rri,; Srte: Sirrel
said he was ready to proceed with the case
against Fitzgerald following a Thursday,
Aug. 24, pretrial hearing where the court
dates Were set.
Siegel said there was no truth to rumors
a plea agreement had been in the works but


hristy Fitzgerald.


fell through.
"There was no agree-
ment," Siegel said.
Published reports
quoting sources "close to
the prosecution" about a
.potential deal were sim-
ply not true, he said.
. "There are no sources
close to .the. prosecution.


It's only me and I was never contacted to
comment " Sieel said.
ii 1,n. ' i -Fitzgefald faces up to five
years in prison if convicted on the felony
charge and one year on each, misdemeanor
counts. Both trials will be held before Judge
Richard Watson.
In a related matter, pretrial hearings
are set Tuesday, Sept. 5, for former county


Public Works Director Arthur Ivey and
Charlie Dukes.
Ivey, 51, of Green Cove Springs, faces
12 third-degree felony counts, including
grand theft, littering over 500 pounds, pub-
lic servant misconduct, and eight misde-
meanor counts for petty theft and violating
state environmental regulations.
Ivey and Fitzgerald were both charged
following an-investigation by Auditor Mike
Price into the county wide dumping scandal.
A Clay County grand jury in March issued
indictments of Ivey, Fitzgerald and Dukes.
Gov. Jeb Bush immediately suspended
Fitzgerald and appointed former state
House Speaker John Thrasher to the post.
The indictments came five months after
an internal investigation by Auditor Mike
Price-cited many deficiencies in the county's


handling of the illegal dumping scandal.
The most serious charge against Fitzger-
ald alleges that she illegally allowed county-
owned equipment to be used on her personal
property, at Ivey's direction, during hurricane
preparations in the summer of 2004.
She has denied the allegation, saying
she didn't know the materials were county
owned and that Price's investigation was po-
litically motivated. Her attorney, Geddes An-
derson, could not be reached for comment.
State Department of Environmental
Protection. investigators found'illegally
dumped materials in Clay County's eight
pits, resulting in a state cleanup order that
could cost nearly $9 million.
Dukes is charged with two felony counts
of illegally littering over 500 pounds,
records show.

New service will benefit deaf and blind students


Special to Clay Today

ORANGlEPtRK--A neo,par nersrnp de-
tween the Florido School for the Deal and
the Blind (FSDB) and St. Johns River
Community College (SJRCC) is being
hailed as a positive development.
The service will be run through the'
new Office of Interpreter Serx ice. headed
SJRCC Coordinator of Interpreters \\,a ne
Alonzo.
Alonzo, a 2003 SJRCC graduate and
an interpreter for 19 years, graduated
from the University of North Florida with
a bachelor's degree in history. He has
worked for FSDB as an interpreter in the
Deaf Department mainstream program for
13 years, and he is a nationally certified
interpreter and a nationally certified
trarisliterator
Both certificates are earned through'
the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf
out oIf Alexandria. Va'. the overseeing body


for nationally certi-
fied interpreters.
According to Dr.
Glen Moore, SJRCC-
v St. Augustine cam-
pus Provost, Alonzo
will serve many
roles within the Of-
fice of Interpreter
Wayne Alonzo Services.
"Wayne will
shepherd the students and help make
them more independent," said Dr. Moore.
in addition, he said that Alonzo has de-
veloped handbooks for the instructors, in-
terpreters and for deaf students.
While Alonzo will be the primary in-
terpreter for SJRCC, he will also be in
charge of finding and matching other in-
terpreters to college classes accordingly.
Moore said 13 deaf students were en-
rolled last year at SJRCC on the St. Au-
gustine and Orange Park campuses.


OP offices to close Labor Day


He hopes establishing a full-time of-
fice on the St. Augustine campus will bet-
ter serve deaf students and increase their.
success in college courses.
Alonzo will travel to the Palatka and
Orange Park campuses if necessary
though the majority of deaf students tend
to enroll at St. Augustirne due to the col-
,lege's proximity to FSDB.


Alonzo is currently contacting deaf stu-
dents v.ho attended SJRCC in the past two
years but did not return in hopes of spread-
ing the word in- the deaf community that
more services are now available to make
the college experience more user friendly.

Early steps program helps young children's progress


By Debbie Israel Messer
Staff Writer
ORANGE PARK- Does your infant closely
watch moving objects and startle to sounds?
Does your six-month-old roll over and lift
their head or does your toddler stand with-
out help and and/or say 15 words without
help? If they can't, those may be signs of a
delay in their development.


For families or caregivers wondering if
their newborn or toddler is developing at
the right rate for their age, there is help
around the corner and it's free if not paid by
Medicaid or insurance.
The Early Steps program assists Clay
County families to determine if there are de-
velopmental delays in their child's growth
and progress. The program serves infants
and toddlers to the age of 36 months.


Rea gets trustees award
Special to Clay Today Based on academic achievement a


LIVINGSTON, Ala.-Todd Steven Rea of
Middleburg was recently awarded a
$4,000 Trustees Scholarship to attend the
University of West Alabama. .


nd


proven leadership potential, the award
comes from the UWA Admissions Office. A
graduate of Faulkner State Community
College, Rea enters UWA this month to
pursue his degree in chemistry.


The program will asses a child's devel-
opment, identify steps to increase that de-
velopment and helps to make sure that
when the child reaches school-age, they are
ready to learn.
The primary focus of the programs is
early intervention,
Before services are provided, there will
be an evaluation of each child to determine
if they need services.

The assessment provided is ongoing so
as to. keep track and determine what serv-
ices are needed and when those services
might need to change.
Six areas are assessed: physical, cogni-
tive, gross and fine motor skills, communi-
cation, social/emotional and adaptive
development.
The program uses a team approach
with one person serving as the primary
provider to work with the family. Natural
learning opportunities are identified so the
needs of the child can be met through a fam-
ily's lifestyle and routines.
An Individualized Family Support Plan
(IFSP) is prepared to set goals for each child.

the public, citing the work shown and pre-

The workshop featured 20 feet long
aerial photographs patched together to
portray the route's delineation. Those at-
tending could clearly see homes, busi-
nesses, and other areas that the route
would envelop.
FDOT presented a comparison of the
four alternatives that had been under con-
sideration for the last several years, going
through initial planning, environmental
review, and public workshops/meetings.
FDOT's Parks said the route was cho-
sen as the preferred route because it had
local support as demonstrated by the res-
olutions passed by both P.L '.i' was des-
ignated within Clay and St. John's
Comprehensive Plans, and had a lower
:number of businesses and residences im-
pacted.
The route would require 24 fewer re-
locations than the purple route (one of the
northern routes) and has 16 fewer
parcels located in the right-of-way.
However, the route .. illi cost an esti-
mated -_i', ndiiigiii more than the cheap-
est route, the purple route.
The purple route would require less

The argument used by proponents of a
toll road, including Clay County's TAC, is
that use of tolls would mean construction
of the road and new bridge sooner than
the projected 25-30 years.
Turnpike Enterprise Intergovernmen-
tal Coordinator Matthew Click said this
project is so large that it would be a sin-
gle issue (project bond issuance.
For other bonds issued by the turnpike
they have aggregated multiple projects for
a bond issuance.
One of the surprises for some partici-
pants was the news that the new bridge
would be tolled, combined with the fact
that at a minimum, a portion of the exist-

toll to visit my relatives in St. John's Coun-
ty." Nelson told Click that in her experi-
ence in other areas where there was a toll
road, a non-tolled surface road, that might
take longer, could be used in lieu of using
a tolled road.
"With the new bridge that is different,
I will have no choice but to have to pay a
toll," said Nelson.
Two more workshops will be held, one
in St. John's County at World Golf Village
in the Renaissance Hotel on Thursday,
Aug.31 and a third, and last, in Duval
County on Thursday, Sept. 7, at the New-
man Center at Cecil Commerce Center..
Both workshops will run from 2 to 8 p:m.

tion information. Parents can enter a
street address within Clay County to de-
termine which elementary or secondary

Education did set up an electronic sys-
tem this year that allowed parents im-
mediate access to their child's FCAT
scores on the.Internet, but this required
.a password that was mailed directly to
parents/guardians.
If I have a question about my child,
can I email his/her teacher or principal?
Although principals' email addresses
are available on school websites, it is best
to just ask general questions. Neither
teachers nor principals can correspond
with parents about their child via e-mail.
This is due to confidentiality. Even if the
child is not named, the child can be iden-
tified through the parents' information in
the e-mail.
What is the Destiny Catalog System?
"Destiny" is an electronic card catalog
system r .il,'l in all schools. It is sort of
an automated iii,. . in which students


can go online to find over 443,000 book ti-
tles in the district. Therefore, if the book
is not available at their school, they can
check it out from another school.
Why do the web pages look funny on
my computer?
The district's web pages were built to
look the chest on: Internet Explorer 5.2 and
above; Netscape 7 and above; Internet Ex-
plorer 5.0 and above; Opera 7; Netscape
7.1 and'above. Monitor resolution may
also cause py-.- 10 look "funny."
If your n,,n 1 ,,1 ' resolution is at a
lower number (800 x 600) then your web
browser may only display a small amount
of the web page with larger text. If your
screen resolution is at a much higher
number. such as 1280 x 1024, then your
browser may display the entire page but
with small text. The web pages are de-
signed at a medium screen resolution.

'I Huii, learn it is a flight simulator with real
side effects. While a pilot uses a flight sim-

ROBD contain nilrogeii and oxygen. During

NAS Jax Fire Department Hazmat Train-
ing Officer Capt. Jamie Sherer was very
pleased with the way the 125th conducted
the drill. "It was very satisfying to help train
other members of the military," Sherer stat-
ed. "I'm confident in their ability to assess
and contain a Hazmat situation."
Both the fire department and Naval
Hospital Jax conduct numerous drills
throughout the year to keep them prepared
for a possible contaminate outbreak.
"Not only do we keep our assessment
Leam informed of the elements involved, but
the hospital must know what chemicals


people may be exposed to," Sherer said. "If
a person showed up at the hospital with a
cough, it might just be a cold. But if six peo-
ple showed up with the same complaint,
there could be a potential Hazmat leak and
we need to be prepared."
Medical personnel are required to be
present on a contamination scene because
they have decontamination capabilities and
quarantine accommodations to prevent the
spreading of undesirable elements.
The base fire department is on call 24
hours a day and consistently trains for var-
ious potential threats, always being pre-
pared for the worst case scenario.

Commissioner challenges


Rotarians to dream


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer
ORANGE PARK- Clay County Commission-
er Harold Rutledge shared his dream for
Clay County with members of the Rotary
Club of Orange Park Monday. Aug. 14. More
than that, he challenged them to dream and
work to achieve their dream.
Rutledge-asked his audience to dream
of a county with a zero percent high school
drop out rate; no traffic congestion; wildlife-
preserves and acres of parks and recre-
ation opportunities; a low tax rate and, fi-
nally, a responsive government accountable
to is citizens, a government that uses its re-
sources properly and frugally.
Suspecting that some of his listeners
might be thinking that his dream is impos-
sible, he pointed to the great wall of China,
to the first landing on the moon, to the de-
coding of DNA as examples of big dreams
that might, at the time, have been thought
impossible.
Big dreams accomplished, Rutledge
said, are our responsibility to our children
and our future.
"You have to share your dream," Rut-
ledge said. How?
' "We must have a dialogue so that you
tell us what you want the county to look like
in 50 years," he said. "Our first step is to

.Rutledge continued, "Along with being
involved, though, comes the responsibility
of being informed. You must be involved and

Florida mortgage brokers has

A new kind of loan - in reverse


Special to Clay Today
Baby boomers, born between 1946 and
1964 will begin to enter retirement age in
2011. With new challenges lying ahead for
those 77 million approaching retirement,
future retirees are looking for new ways to
supplement their cash flow in their "golden
years." Whether seeking money to finance
a home improvement, pay off a current
mortgage, travel, or pay for healthcare ex-
penses, The Florida Association of Mort-
gage Brokers (FAMB) looks to help people
meet those needs in new and exciting ways.
Enter the reverse mortgage.
A "reverse" mortgage is a federally in-
sured loan against your home. With a re-
verse mortgage, you can turn the equity in
your home into cash. No monthly payments
are ever required. You get to use the cash
-and not pl,, ii b.,,:. until.you sell thie home
or pass away.
The cash you get from a reverse mort-
gage can be paid to you in ..i . . i ,.

* As a ': Jit! il ii:., !-,, orin i i n ouri ,
*Asa '(!.ajnl hlr, ,:M--oun ri i,1 t l ,ii lou
decide when and how much of your co ailrl,
cash is paid to you. The unused portion of
your credit line grows each month, releas-
ing even more equity for your future use;
Or, as a combination of any of these
methods.
No matter how you choose to receive this
loan, you typically don't have to pay anything
back until you pass away, sell your home, or
permanently move out. Tb.be eligible for-most
reverse mortgages:, ,: rum-.I own your home
and be 62 years of age or older:
When you sh)p fr , t li.i- liorwi ni.iri-
gage, the lender ci-,: -. ':, :,ur irnc irn Ih -,
how much you can afford to pay back each
-month. However. vith -i rev-ir.,,: r,- i 2,inI;.A
'-t -e .:,r7 rn., f'iln! rl, i,-,ri: . nn -o ',Io 11


don't need a minimum amount of income to
qualify for a reverse mortgage. You could
have no income and still be able to get a re-
verse mortgage.
There are somecobmmon mispercep-
tions that one should quickly dispel re-
garding'a reverse mortgage. The first is
that only low-income senior citizens can
benefit from a reverse mortgage. This is
false. Even though some seniors may have
a greater need than others for the cash or
monthly income, a reverse mortgage can
also be an excellent financial or estate
planning tool for higher income individuals
or simply to improve the quality of retire-
ment lifestyle.
Another common misperception about
a reverse mortgage is that there will not be
anything left for one's "children." or heirs to
inherit. A reverse mortgage is a non-re-
course loan, which means "no personal
guarantees," and the children or heir is not
responsible upon your move or death. The
house, pays back the loan. The amount you
owe will be clearly disclosed during appli-
cation and again during the closing, so your
heirs will know what to expect. They will
,get to keep any equity left over, once the
HUD insured loan is repaid first.
"As with any financial arrangement,
you should consult a I ru i-i fin ir ir.:i, i i-
sor or mortgage hrnker to find a p.iAnTrhil',
right for you," Si.e- ...rin .,ier. CMC,

girlfriend's home. Hall attempted to flee
on foot from officers, but was not suc--
cessful, the Sheriff's Office said.
Hall had left the Orange Park area fol-
lowing the attack on 18-year-old Ladarius
Gordon. The Sheriff's Office said detectives
believe Hall approached Gordon in the
parking lot of the Oak Forest Apartments in
Orange Park and hit him repeatedly on the
head and upper body with a metal pipe.
Gordoin is now home recovering from
serious head and lung injuries.
Clay County Sheriff's Office detectives
traveled to High Point, N.C., and followed
up on tips that Hall was traveling with his
girlfriend and may be staying with her
family members in that state, the Sheriff's
Office said.
Tips also took the detectives to
Durham, N.C., where a friend of Hall's,
Andre' Williams, was located. A very un-
cooperative Williams was taken into cus-'
tody for outstanding Clay County.warrants
including disorderly conduct and worth-
less checks, the Sheriff's Office said.
Police in Durham, High Point.and
Greensboro also provided invaluable sup-
port during this out-of-state search, the
Sheriff's Office said.
Hall is a registered convicted felon and
has been arrested 14 prior times in Clay
County. His prior charges include armed
robbery, -battery, drug-offenses and theft, the
Sheriff's Office said. Extradition-is pending.
Pedestrian hit on Blanding
ORANGE PARK - A 44-year-old Or-
ange Park man was killed crossing the
street Blanding Boulevard early Tuesday,
Aug. 29.
The victim, Michael S. Clark, was
crossing at Orange Park Northway when
a 1994 Honda Civic driven by Charles
Keech, 27, of Palatka, the Florida High-
way Patrol. said, struck him.
Clark died at the scene, the Highway
Patrol said.
The accident snarled Clay County
commuter traffic, backing up both Bland-
ing and U.S. 17 for- miles.
The Highway Patrol said no charges
will be filed against Keech.
Contributing to the Tuesday morning
traffic woes was another accident, this
one involving a school bus on Blanding
Boulevard.
The accident involving the bus loaded
with Orange Park High School students
happened just after 7 a.m. at Wells Road,
the Florida Highway Patrol said. There
were no injuries.
Police said a car driven by Ashley Alke-
ma of Macclenny struck the rear of the bus
when she was unable to stop in time.



Rutledge
FROM PAGE 25A
It would not have taxing authority; that au-
thority, he said, is reserved to the Board of
County Commissioners.
Rutledge's own dream of transportation
cures includes not only road, but mass
transit including light rail and hovercraft.
taxi that can whisk passengers and cars
down the river from Green Cove Springs to
Jacksonville in about 10 minutes.
Rutledge said he had'heard citizens at-
tack the plan but, he said,."A transportation
authority is nothing more than your gov-
ernment trying to find new and different
ways of addressing our problems."
Building on the transportation theme,
Rutledge said people need to dream of good
jobs and an organization the county ded-
icated to attracting good businesses with
high paying jobs.
Rutledge suggested that county govern-
ment include an individual whose job is
economic development and nothing more.
The commissioner concluded, "Help
make Clay County the best place to live,
learn, work and play. Be involved. Be in-
formed. Dream now and dream big."

team almost repaiO tl l\ avor.




Orange Park won the game 14-7. But
even Panthers coach Tom MacPherson had
to admit the loss was actually a "moral vic-
tory" because his young team stayed close
to senior-dominated Orange Park.
But for Raiders coach Ted Leasor, the-
game was close only because his team
made far too many mistakes, including
seven fumbles by six different players that
allowed the Panthers to pull within one
touchdown late in the game.'
"If you fumble six times in one game
you are lucky if you come away with the
win. I don't care if you are playing the Lit-
tle Sisters of the Poor," Leasor said.
Orange Park's defense effectively con-
trolled the first half, shutting down run-
ning back Larry Williams and not letting
the passing game get started.
In fact, the Raiders first touchdown
came on an interception on the first play
of the second quarter.
Orange Park free safety Terry Young
snagged the pass near midfield and ran it
back 41 yards to the 1-yard line, mo-
ments later junior running back Marcus
Pulliam took it in for the score at 11:48 in
the second quarter.


. CORRESPONDENT PHOTOS.BY TL COCHRAN
Brian Sumlar (5) has a wall of Orange in front of him as races for some of the 157 yards on the ground he
gained.


Orange Park struck again with 4:37
left in the second quarter on a five-yard
run by senior running back Brian Sumlar,
the touchdown was setup by a 17-yard
pass from quarterback Joel Fletcher to
Ray Jackson and on solid running by Sum-
lar, who gathered 157 yards on 26 carries
during the game.
Place kicker Kyle Kupfer added both
extra points to give the Raiders a 14-0
halftime lead.
Ridgeview mounted a drive near the end
of the half, but had it stopped at 1:05 on an
interception at the Raiders' 5-yard line.
In spite of the two-touchdown deficit
the Panthers did not let it derail their
hopes of an opening game upset.
After gaining only 14 total yards in the
first half, the Panthers began moving the
ball behind Derrick Hatcher's passing and
.several fine catches by wide receiver
Quintin Thrash,
The Panthers only score of the night
was setup by a Raider fumble inside the
Ridgeview one-yard line; Hatcher then en-


gineered a 99-yard scoring drive that in-
cluded receptions of 30 and 35 yards to.
Thrash and a 31-yard strike to Ryan Guess
that cut the lead in half with 10:54 left in
the game, but that was all the offense
Ridgeview could generate..
- Even in the loss Panther coach
MacPherson said he was pleased with his
team's performance.
"Nobody really expected us to stay in the
game," he said. "This will give us confidence."

Golden Eagles start season with 44-0 win


Eagles post most points
and first ever shutout
By Alan Nicotra
Correspondent
HASTINGS - The Fleming Island Golden.
Eagles opened their 2006 season Friday
night in what was a night of many firsts.
in the short fiu -:, r,:r history of the foot-
ball team.
* Three touchdowns from running back
Eric Johnson and one from quarterback
Jemar Anderson, the Golden Eagles de-
feated the Falcons of Pedro Menendez with
ease, blanking them 44-0 in what was the
fi, .1 irhioui. ever posted by a football team
from Fleming Island and was also the most
points ever scored in a single game.
"I've never been more proud coaching
.this football team than I am tonight,"
Fleming Island heal i::,i..ii Il-l Chipolet-
ti added following his team's first' ii:fi:l,
of the season.
After Jemar Anderson fumbled on the
first drive of the game, the G,.,1leri Eagles
offense :.',-,i' ,.'n their next possession, a
20-yard quarterback keeper from Ander-
son, giving Fleming Island the early 7-0,
with 5:12 i-m:i li ng in the first ,1 ii-i .
S "I just came out and made plays when
they had to be made tonight," said Ander-
son after the game.
. ,i1 8:43 remaining in the fi :-, half
and Fleming Island leading 10-0 .j.-r a 22-
yard field goal by Nathan Branz, the Gold-
en Eagles defense forced the first of seven
turnovers by Pedro Menendez in the game.
Defensive tackle Mar pr:- he i.' ili ,--
covered a fumble and returned it to the
Falcon's three--,,.l.. liidn:, setting up Eric
Johnson's first touchdown of the game, in-
creasing the Golden Eagles' lead to 17-0.
Looking to add another score before
halftime, the Golden Eagles did just that,
as Eric Johnson received a screen pass
near the sideline from Anderson and took
it 64 yards for the touchdown, making the
score at halftime 24-0.
\\ik , A r i n.'i:i- sidelined the rest of the
game with an elbow injury, junior quarter-
back Ryan Aplin stepped in and on the very
first play of the second half the Golden Ea-
gles offense scored once again, Eric John-
son took the hand off and went 49 yards to'
score, giving Fleming Island a 30-0 lead.
"I thought I played decenttonight,"
added Johnson after the game, "The of-


fensive line did a great job tonight and that
really helped me and our offense out."
Fleming Island would tack on another
touchdown before the third quarter was
over on a three-yard touchdown run from
Sheppard to go up 37-0.
In the fourth quarter, Fleming's'Trey
Kendrick scored the final touchdown for
the Golden Eagles, running it in from 22
yards out.
Fleming Island will face .iuni., rival
Clay High School Friday night at home as
'the Golden Eagles go for their first victo-
ry e o\r -.. i-r the Blue Devils. : .

Golf season gets underway with Clay County Classic


By Charlie Rector
Correspondent
ORANGE PARK - Last'week junior golfers
from Clay High, Middleburg, Fleming Is-
land, Orange Park, Keystone, Ridgeview
and St. Johns Country Day School sent
thirty-five junior golfers out to the links at
Eagle Landing Golf Club for the Clay Coun-
ty Classic.
Although the classic was cut short to
nine-holes due to inclement weather, the
Fleming Island Golden Eagles won with a
.151, number one golfer for the event Joey
Keene shot a two under par 34 on the first
nine and was the Medalist-of the match,
shooting one stroke better than his team-
mate Brian Newman (35) and two better
than last years teammate Thomas Modlin
with an even par (36).
Clay High followed with at 161, Orange
.Park was third with 167, a young team
from St. Johns who had two middle school
players grabbed 4th place with a 170 while
Middleburg followed with a 174 and Key-
stone and Ridgeview tied with a 211.
Here is a brief look at each team and.
their scores at the classic:
Orange Park - Coach Michael Johns
"We did not play very well today, a cou-
ple of the guys are playing high and we
should be lower. These guys are seniors and
should be playing better, four of our five are


seniors and have plenty of experience."
Scott Hall 40. Adam Eiswerth 41, Matt
Houck 42, Brandon Steele 44, Eric Bell 47.
Clay - Coach Jacques Bush
The Blue Devils picked up Fleming Is-
land's number two golfer in Thomas Mod-
lin whose family moved to Green Cove.
"My top four golfers probably im-
proved the total team score by 20 to 30
strokes, both Travis McQuaig and Jimmy
Norton have worked hard this off season
and cut 5 to 10 strokes off their game."
Thomas Modlin 36, Travis -McQuaig
37. Jimmy Norton 43, Justin Rhoads 45,
John Sgromolo 46.
Fleming Island - Coach Bruce Cloud
"We've got a stronger- team than last
year. Today. we didn't have our number
one player in Joseph Yoo who is the U.S.
Amateur for this week. The guys we
brought are solid, its hard to pick who is
going to play, they are all very competi-
tive. It should be a good year."
Joey Keene 34, Brian Newman 35,
Brian Mills 41, Zack Salsman 41, Robert
West 41
Keystone - Coach Reginald Good
Our team is very young, we only have
one senior and he is not qualified to play
today, but hopefully he'll be back next week."
Stephen Kennedy 46, Scott Williamson
48, Greg Mi.mbs 58, Cameron Sapp 59,.
John Bounds 61

Ridgeview - Coach, Kirby Slemmons
"I must say we are very young this
year and it may be a little tough but I'm
sure we will win, a few this year.".
Hunter Larsen 51, Michael Mason 52,
Michael Farinella 53, K. Febastraphagen

St. Johns - Coach Scott Sutek
By far the youngest team to play with
an 8thgrader and 6th grader but still fin-
ished in the middle of the.pack at fourth.

Keystone defense stifles Branford in 21-0 win


Defense gives up just 140
total yards in win

Special from Cliff Smelley
. KEYSTONE - It was a tale of two halves for
the Keystone Heights offense in the season
opener against the Branford Buccaneers
but the defense turned in a solid perform-
ance throughout the game, limiting visiting
Branford to less than 140 yards of total of-
fense in the shutout victory.


the first play from scrimmage and the In-
dians limited the Branford offense to just.
three plays on its next two possessions.
Robie Latner broke up a pass play on
third down, Jeramy Lewis record a tackle
for a loss of 5 yards and Sam Theisen
sacked Branford quarterback David
Campbell for a loss of 7 yards as the de-
fense put their staple on the game in the
opening minutes of the second half.
However, while the defense played
lights out it was another story for the of-
fense as they gained just 59 yards in the

Keystone quarterback Blake Lott (5) throws a jump pass to an open receiver in the Indian win.


"Anytime you get a shutout no matter
who you play its a positive," Keystone
head coach Chuck Dickinson said.
Dickinson said his team had to make
some adjustments defensively as the game
went on; Branford's offense presented a
different look then it had been in the
spring contest. Still, the Indians limited
the Buccaneers to just five first downs
through the first three quarters.
"The defense played well and I think
we made some good adjustments," added
Dickinson.
The defensive unit came out of the
locker room with an especially strong per-
formance in the third quarter as defensive
back Clayton Mosley intercepted a pass on


second half and failed to capitalize on
Mosley's interception, which gave them
the ball at the Branford 26, while another
drive ended with a-fumble.
"I guess we decided to play one quar-
ter offensively," Dickinson said.
Actually, the Indians seemed unstop-
pable in both quarters of the opening half,
but a fumble ended their first drive of the
game.
The Indians took care of the ball the
second time they touched it, putting to-
gether a 12-play, 83-yard drive that ate up
nearly seven minutes.
Running back Greg Taylor, who fin-
ished the game with 82 yards on 13 car-
ries, was the workhorse. He had seven

Yulee too much for St. Johns

in first game for both teams


By Larry Scarborough
Correspondent


ORANGE PARK - It was the battle of two
new schools yet to play there first regular
season game but that all changed on when
the St. Johns Spartans hosted another
first year program in the Yulee Hornets,
so someone had to win their first ever
game and that happened to be the Hornets
with a 45-7 thumping of St. Johns.
The Spartanr '.eningi ir possession was
indicative of the nigh, t .hey I.oiil.l h.in e,
after winning the toss and taking the
opening kinkorff .o the 3:3-yard line, Ryan
Peeples took their first, play in regil.llar
season history for a one-ya.rd gain
However, after an in':nniplelirin. James
Matchet intercepted quarterback Robert
Ballantine as-he tried to hit wide receiver


Andrew Creighton over the middle.
The Hornets took the ball on their
forty-eight yard line and moved the ball in
six plays to the Spartans four-yard line.
But on the next play the Yulee returned
the favor by fumbling and senior line-
backer for St. Johns TJ Weaver recovered
the ball with 6.05 left in the first period.
Now deep in their own territory and
after two running plays that gained 3
yards, Ballantine dropped back to pass
and he was picked off again, this tifni liy-

first play, Hornet quarterback William

Finally with 4:07 remaining before
halftime, the Spartans gave the home
crowd something to cheer about and it
came in the form of senior running back
Will Buehn who caught a pass in the right
flat, he faked two Yulee defenders and
shook off another on his way to the end
zone for the first touchdown in Spartan
history, a 62-yard pass from Ballantine
and Ramzi Shaykh added the extra point
to make the score 20-7.
Unfortunately for St. Johns it would
their only score of the night as Yulee scored
again with 1.54 left in the first half to take
a 26-7 lead into the locker room at halftime
and they dominated the line of scrimmage
the rest of the way scoring 19 points in the
second half for the decisive win.
There weren't many bright spots for
the Spartans but Carter Weber had a
super game with eleven tackles while TJ
Weaver recorded eight.

Big plays 'bedevil' Clay in season opening loss


Long run, pass play spell
doom in hard-hitting battle

By Horace Davis

GREEN COVE SPRINGS - Each time the
Clay Blue Devils and the Gainesville Hur-
ricanes meet spectators can be assured
two things. The game will be closely con-
tested and it will be hard-hitting.

Clay looked to strike back quickly,
Francis continued to terrorize the front
seven of Gainesville with impressive runs
but with 8:08 left in the. quarter he fin-
ished off a nice run with a fumble that the
Hurricanes recovered and his counterpart
Batie went back to work with a gain of 16-
yards, he then capped off the drive with a
15-yard scamper to make-the score 20-7
with 6:52)left in the third.

- Batie took a handoff made-one cut and
he was into the Blue Devil secondary on-
his way to an 84-yard gallop to tie the
game at seven with 7:02 left in the half.
Big play number 1.
Following Batie's score both defenses
seemed to settle down delivering huge hits
and forcing turnovers.
Both teams exchanged turnovers in the
opening half with Brian Christian recover-
ing a fumble and Ben Carter recording an
interception. But the Blue Devils did not
make them, pay and the score remained
deadlocked at 7 going into halftime.
Gainesville did not wait long to break
the tie and Batie was part of it again, he
returned the kickoff 45-yards to midfield
to setup a short drive.
The Hurricanes converted a 4th down to
keep the drive alive, on the next play Brandon
Blundell ran a wheel route and beat the un-
suspecting Clay defense on a 42-yard score.
Big play number 2.
"Those were two big plays they made,
we just did not defend them that well. But on
the whole I like the way the guys battled. I
saw a lot of good things tonight and I'm very
proud of the way guys played. Malcolm ran
the ball very well; Steven did. a good job in
his first start and the defense played well
along with the offensive line. However I think
we may have worn down in the second half,

Lying awake one night some years ago.
in Eustis, It wasn't the memories of the
fish I had caught from a wooded canal that
afternoon that kept me from sleeping. It
was an uncontrollable itch. My.buddies
advised me that I had red bugs bedded in
my side and that the best remedy was a
vinegar bath. Now, they.didn't say how
much vinegar to put in the bath, and I
wasn't in the mood to take any chances, so
I itched through the night until the near-
est grocery store opened the next morn-
ing. The roosters and I howled at sunrise
until finally the man with the key opened
the place. I grabbed a shopping cart and
went to the vinegar aisle. I emptied the
shelf of gallon jugs.
When my friends awoke, they followed
their noses to the pickle factory that had
been a bathroom the night before. Ten
empty vinegar jugs lay on the floor and I
soaked in the tub, my sinuses quite clear
and my skin nearly numb. I ril .lourii re-
lief, and they had found comic relief. "Why
did you buy ten gallons of vinegar?" they
hollered in disbelief. "Because the store
didn't have eleven gallons," I told them.
"Y'all said to take a vinegar bath." "Yeah,"
they replied, "but you're only supposed to
put a cup or two of the stuff in a full tub of
water. How can you breath, in here?" Like
I said, I wasn't in the mood to take any
chances. I decided I was going to kill those
nasty bugs even if I died in the process.
Yes, go ahead and laugh, reader. Mine
isn't the craziest story.- I have.heard of
people using turpentine - I look back now
and thank God that my buddies didn't rec-
ommend that course of action. I was so in-
sane from the itch that I would have likely

Have you found out what's


filled the tub with it and dove in.
I heard a caller on the BellSouth Out-
doors show one Saturday morning share
his experience. He was advised by a phar-
macist at the old Pic N' Save store to use
hydrocortisone.
He bought a tube and didn't wait to go
home. Needing immediate relief, he ran
into the restroom, disrobed, and applied
it to all affected areas. The sight was
rather confusing to the next customer
who entered the restroom - a naked pink
man in the. Pic N' Save restroom - how
bad do you have to go?
Late last summer my 3-year-old boy
and I went scouting through some woods
heavily populated with deer. Areas that
harbor large-populations of mammals -also
harbor large populations of ticks, which
depend on the mammals to survive. After-
a short trip, we emerged to find several
ticks on each of us - and we had been care-
ful not to touch any plants that we didn't
absolutely need to. Because I was raised
to be aware .of ticks and check for them
when leaving the woods, we removed the
creatures before they dug into us.
As autumn approaches, many of you
will venture into area woods to scout in
preparation for the Iup b ,liri:, hunting sea-
son. You'll return home with new informa-
tion and a renewed sense of optimism - and
some bugs crawling on and under your skin.
Ticks carry diseases, including Lyme
disease. Besides that, they are aggravat-
ing to remove once the head is buried into
your skin. In the likely event that you do
find a parasite burrowed into your side
(I'm not talking about 30-year-olds'who
move back in with you, but rather, actual
insects) use.sterilized tweezers to grasp
the critter as close to the skin as possible..
With a big enough pair of tweezers you
may be able to remove grown children
also. Try to get a grip on the creature's
head. Then simply pull it out. Cleanse the
very minor resulting wound with alcohol
or peroxide, etc. Make certain that no
piece of the head is left inside the skin. If
a visual inspection reveals pieces that you,
can't remove or dI .,-.inr : .. or swelling
occur, it is a good idea to see a doctor. One

bite in a hundred will produce a bull's-
eye-shaped rash. This is not a major
cause for concern, but it has been linked
with incidence of rare diseases and would
be cause for, at least, a phone call to the
physician. Note: never try to remove one
that is close to your temple. A doctor, in
general, should remove ticks in the head,
as they pose special dangers.
Since an ounce of prevention is worth,
oh, I'd say about 10 gallons of cure, wear
long pants and long-sleeved shirts and
tuck pants legs inside socks and boots.
Besides keeping some ticks off of you,
dressing this way really makes you look

Off", though I have never tried it. I'll prob-
ably test it out next time I roll in some
Spanish moss. Last time I had the boogers
I would have taken advice from an Indian
medicine man. How does that dance go,
chief? Hit the drums - I'll do it!
As for prevention of red bug infestation,
-avoidance of Spanish moss alone can go a
long way toward keeping you itch-free.
They pack into the stuff like Yankees flock-
ing to a new condominium on the beach.
I heard a story from one'novice hunter
who climbed a tree and "made my own
camouflage with Spanish moss. I stuck

Wildcats
FROM PAGE 6B


day hit receiver Chase Weiskopf on a 46-
yard pass and catch, the Middleburg faith-
ful did not have much to cheer about as
they were already trailing 22-0,
"What can I say, we are a young team.
Actually we are. real young. It's tough, on a
sophomore quarterback (Cannaday), but I
feel.he's coming along good. Sometimes
there will be nights like this."
M-iddleburg's offensive woes started
early, their first possession produced"
three-plays for three-yards but a gutsy
move.by Justino who reached into his bag
of tricks and called a fake punt on his own
29-yard line, it worked and prolonged the
initial drive.
However, after a nice gain by running
back Kentrell Davis and a sneak by Can-


U-011SI SLE


naday the drive stalled and there was no
fake punt this time.
Baker County took over on their 19-
yard line and was not able to move the ball.
After thwarting the Wildcats offense
through the first quarter, Baker County
began to confuse the Bronco defense be-
ginning with quarterback Carlos Holten
bootleg around left end to the'four, two
plays later Mark Johns took it in from
the one with 9:43 left to give Baker
County the 8 -0 lead after a two-point
conversion.
On the ensuing kick off Middleburg's
Trae Stephenso.n turned a nice return
into a costly turnover, he gained 16 yards
on. the return but fumbled inside the
Bronco 25-yard line for the first turnover
on the night.
Two plays and a Middleburg penalty
later, Johns was at again, he capped off
the short drive with a five-yard plunge as
the Wildcats extended their lead to 16-0


with less then four minutes expired in the
second quarter. "
Now the Broncos looked to strike back
and-appeared they might as Dayis had
three runs for positive yardage plus a fif-
teen yard penalty against Baker County
moved the Broncos into its deepest pene-
tration of the Wildcats.
However the drive killer appeared
again as Davis broke off another nice run
to the Baker County 38-yard line before
fumbling and Baiker County recovered. .
Once again the Wildcats made the
Broncos pay for the costly turnovers, this
time it was the quarterback Holton who
capped, off a sixty-two yard drive with 35-
yard scarhper on a quarterback keeper to
blow the game open at 22-0.
.After the Broncos cut the lead to 22-8
before the half ended they would get no
closer as the Wildcats used 38 and 18-
yard runs by Lucious-Lee to put.the.game
out of reach.


"Our defense was out there a long
time and it makes it rough to stop the run
when you are so worn down-. Middleburg
is known as a smash mouth football team,
but we just didn't do it tonight. We. are
close, we just have to keep working at it
and see what happens when we. go Santa
Fe next week,"-said Justino.

order to protect people, espe-
cially youth, from health haz-
ards of using tobacco, includ-
ing addictive disorders, can-
cer, cardiovascular diseases,
and lung diseases; and to dis-
courage use of tobacco, par-
ticularly among youth, a por-
tion of the money that tobacco
companies pay to the State of
Florida under the Tobacco
Settlement each year shall be
used to fund a comprehensive
statewide tobacco education
and prevention program con-
sistent with recommendations
of the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), as follows:
(a) Program. The money
appropriated pursuant to this
section shall be used to fund a
comprehensive. statewide
tobacco education and pre-
vention program consistent
with the recommendations for


effective program compo-
nents in the 1999 Best
Practices for Comprehensive
Tobacco Control Programs of
the CDC, as such Best
Practices may be amended
by the CDC. This program
shall include, at a minimum,
the following components,
and may include additional
components that are also con-
tained within the CDC Best
Practices, as periodically
amended, and that are effec-
tive at accomplishing the pur-
pose of this section, and that
do not undermine the effec-
tiveness of these required
minimum components:
(1) an advertising campaign
to discourage the use of
tobacco and to educate peo-
ple, especially youth, about
the health hazards of tobacco,
which shall be designed to be
effective at achieving these
goals and shall include, but
need not be limited to, televi-
sion, radio, and print advertis-
ing, with no limitations on any
individual advertising medium
utilized; and which shall be
funded at a level equivalent to
one-third of each total annual
appropriation required by this
section;
(2) evidence-based curricu-
la and programs to educate
youth about tobacco and to
discourage their use of it,
including, but not limited to,
programs that involve youth,
educate youth about the
health hazards of tobacco,
help youth develop skills to
refuse tobacco, and demon-
strate to youth how to stop
using tobacco;
(3) programs of local com-
munity-based partnerships
that discourage the use of
tobacco and work to educate
people, especially youth,
about the health hazards of
tobacco, with an emphasis on
programs that involve youth
and emphasize the prevention
and cessation of tobacco use;
(4) enforcement of laws,
regulations, and policies
against the sale or other pro-
vision of tobacco to minors,
and the possession of tobac-,
co by minors; and
(5) publicly-reported annual
evaluations to ensure that
moneys appropriated pur-
suant to this section are spent
properly, which shall include
evaluation of the program's
effectiveness in reducing and
preventing tobacco use, and
annual recommendations for
improvements to enhance the
program's effectiveness,
which are to include compar-
isons to similar programs
proven to be effective in other
states, as well as compar-
isons to CDC Best Practices,
including amendments there-
to.
(b) Funding. In every year
beginning with the calendar
year after voters approve this
amendment, the Florida
Legislature shall appropriate,
for the purpose expressed
herein, from the total gross
funds that tobacco companies
pay to the State of Florida
under the .Tobacco
Settlement, an amount equal
to fifteen percent of such


funds paid to the State in
2005; and the appropriation
required by this section shall
be adjusted annually for infla-
tion, using the Consumer
Price Index as published by
the United States Department
of Labor.
(c) Definitions. "Tobacco"
includes, without limitation,
tobacco itself and tobacco
products that include tobacco
and are intended or expected
for human use or consump-
tion, including, but not limited
to, cigarettes, cigars, pipe
tobacco, and smokeless
tobacco. The "Tobacco
Settlement" means that cer-
tain Settlement Agreement
dated August 25, 1997,
entered into in settlement of
the case styled as State of
Florida, et al. v. American
Tobacco Company, et al.,
Case No. 95-1466 AH (Fla.
15th Cir. Ct.), as amended by
Stipulation of Amendment
dated September 11, 1998;
and includes any subsequent
amendments and successor
agreements. "Youth" includes
minors and young adults.
(d) Effective Date. This
amendment shall become
effective immediately upon
approval by the voters.

Financial Impact Statement:
This amendment requires
state government to appropri-
ate approximately $57 million
in 2007 for . the
Comprehensive Statewide
Tobacco Education and
Prevention Program.
Thereafter, this amount will
increase annually with infla-
tion. This spending is expect-
ed to reduce tobacco con-
sumption. As a result, some
long-term savings to state and
local government health and
insurance programs are prob-
able, but indeterminate. Also,
minor revenue loss to state
government is probable, but
indeterminate.
