Do you remember where you were on 9/11?


The "Do you remember where you
were when...?" game took a rather
somber turn this week as dozens of publi-
cations asked the question. The when, of
course, is Sept. 11, 2001, and the impli-
cation is where were you when you first
heard of the attacks on America? I got me
thinking (that, in itself, a formidable
achievement).
Late the week before, I had stooped
over to pick something up and found that
I was unable to straighten up without a
great deal of difficulty and pain. I was,
therefore, home from work, laid back in a
recliner with a heating pad on my back. I
didn't have either the television or a radio
on so I was blissfully unaware of the as-
sault on our own soil.
It was Tuesday, deadline day for the
paper and meeting day for the County
Commission. I live very near the County
Administration Building so I figured I
would be able to cover the meeting, write
it up at home and e-mail it to the office. ,
When I arrived on the fourth floor of
the Administration Building, I saw a group
of people gathered in front of a television.
I stepped over to see what they, were
watching and I was appalled at what I
.saw. I stared for a few moments trying to
figure out if this was a drama or what. It
was no drama; it was terribly real..


From Where I Sit


OPINION COLUMN
Bob Henderson
BHENDERSON@JCPGROUPCOM


As I settled into my seat in the Coun-
cil Chamber, I heard talk all around of at-
tacks and war.
When I got home, the television went
on. I remained glued to it for days.
Over and over again I tried to grasp
the horror of those planes disappearing
into the bowels of the twin towers and the
Pentagon.
Over and over again my stomach
lurched as I saw desperate people jump-
ing from the upper floors of two of the
world's tallest buildings.
I thought of all the men, women and -
yes - even children spending their last
moments in terror because of a handful of
insane religious fanatics.
As the days wore on, we began receiv-
ing detailed reports of world reaction. One
of the more poignant moments, I thought,
was the televising of a memorial service


from London's West Minster Abbey. The
queen and several members of the royal
family were in attendance in sympathy
with former colonies. And, for the first
time in history, the abbey church filled
with the strains of "The Star Spangled
Banner." It was altogether moving.
Five years have passed and we are en-
gaged.in a "War on Terrorism." We haven't
captured Osama bin Ladin but we have
captured or killed top-level lieutenants.
Terror still exists in the world but not
since 9/11 has there been another attack
on American soil. We find ourselves fight-
ing a cowardly'enemy that hides among
women and children, an enemy that wears
no uniform or other identification (that
used to be a hanging offense); we are
fighting an..enemy with no morals, no
sense of right, only a warped idea of what
a peaceful religion expects of them.


Dear Voters,

Thank you for your show of confidence in me by electing
me to serve four more years on the Clay County School
Board. I pledge to continue to focus on school improvement
and academic excellence for our school system.

Your vote and support is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,-

(^ e4j ^ g.

We probably never will be able to ex-
terminate them, but we can neutralize
them - and we should. The cost.is and will
be horrendous but every battle our nation
has fought to maintain its security has
been costly: But after more than 200
years, the "American experiment" lives on.
May it continue to do so.

GCS home

Special to Clay Today
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The residents
of Julia Street have a new neighbor,
thanks to hard working AmSouth Bank
volunteers, and Clay County Habitat for
Humanity project coordinators.
. AmSouth provided construction costs
and arranged volunteer labor, more than
200 hours total, to help build the new
home for Sarah and Frankie Wheeler and
their three children. The new home rep-
resents an estimated corporate invest-
ment back in to the community of
$136,800.
"Our completion of this fifth Habitat
home in Clay County proves that we're
'The Relationship People' both on and off
the job," said Jacksonville City President
Marty Lanahan. "We build relationships
all the time, and working with our great
partners at Habitat in Clay County, to-
gether we're building stronger neighbor-
hoods, and improving the lives of the
families like the Wheelers."
Erika Woodcock, Business Manager
for Habitat for Humanity in.'Clay County,
said the benefits of this house reach be-
yond this one family.
"AmSouth's partnership with Habitat
in building the home in El-Dorado Heights
will continue to reap rewards. As the.
Wheeler family.repays Habitat, we will
use the repayments toward future home
'builds.
"Meanwhile, the family will receive
our support on how to I. :' urc'es-sul

property, increasing its . :iIjer .nrd .3didmg

Derelict boat near bridge focus of ongoing probe


Clay Today staff

ORANGE PARK - The owner of a house-
boat that's run aground near the Doctor's
Lake Bridge is facing arrest for not getting
the vessel moved, the Clay County Sher-
iff's Office says.
An arrest warrant has been issued for
James K. Hall, 50, of Jacksonville after he
did not comply with an order to move the
40-foot, steel hull boat within 30 days,
said Deputy Chris Castelli, who heads the
Sheriff's Office marine enforcement unit.
Hall is charged with owning a derelict
boat, a first-degree misdemeanor, Castel-
li said.
"We have a warrant out for this indi-
vidual," Castelli said. "He was given 30
days and he didn't remove' it." -
Hall told police he was moving the
boat to another location sometime July 31
when it ran aground, Castelli said.
"He said there was a storm blowing in
and it washed up there, and there it sat,"-
Castelli said.
The Coast Guard inspected the boat
and determined it doesn't pose an envi-
ronmental hazard, although the owner
says the boat needs structural repairs be-
fore it can be moved.


Special to Clay Today

MIDDLEBURG - The 4th Annual Clay
County Kid's Day is planned for Saturday,
Sept. 23, at Middleburg High School and.
will feature a fun run and several infor-
mation booths about child safety.
The event - from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
- focuses on health, safety and environ-
mental awareness affecting children, said
Dr. David Otto, an Orange Park chiro-
practor and the event organizer.
The-event, which drew an estimated
1,000 people last year, is expected to be
even bigger this year and .include a one-
mile "Fun Run". Local schools will also be
competing in singing competition.


Now the county is trying to find fund-
ing available to have boat removed. At
the same time, Castelli said he's dealing
with a myriad of state regulations that
must be followed before the boat can be
seized.
"We've had people come up and say
they will salvage the boat if they can keep
it.. But it's not like finder's keepers. A judge
will have to decide whether the boat is
sold," he said.
"There are a whole list of regulations
you have to go through when you do some-
thing like this."
Ultimately, Hall could have the boat
seized by a court and sold to .er,. .. -i
incurred by the county. In addition he
could face fines and jail time if the issue
isn't resolved, Castelli said.
This isn't the only Clay County aban-
doned boat case being worked. Castelli
said a summons hassbeen issued for a 57-
year-old Jacksonville man who abandoned
a 35-foot Chris Craft at a White Owl Road
boat ramp near Eagle Harbor.
Melvin Price also is charged with own-
ing a derelict boat, Castelli said.
"He bought the boat from someone and
was taking it home when it broke down. So
he just pulled up at a dock along White Owl


The Clay County Sheriff's Office will
also conduct free fingerprinting and the
Fire. Department provide fire safety tips
and carseat safety checks.
The Boy Scouts will be on hand to dis-
tribute essential information about envi-
ronmental awareness.
."This huge event is made possible by
our wonderful sponsors who invest in
our community," Otto said. He listed
Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Celebration
Church, Discover Family Chiropractic,
-Gordon Chevrolet, Striders Track Club,
Clay Action Coalition, Juvenile Justice,
Clay Fire. & Rescue, Clay Sheriff, Ex-
plorers, Sea Graffix and the Florida Na-
tional Guard.


and abandoned it," Castelli said.
The man didn't respond to a summons
and was arrested, Castelli said. A hearing
is scheduled next month.
Each case could potentially cost the
county up to $10,000 to investigate and to
have the boat removed.


"People need to realize the cost of
these cases," Castelli said.
But he added that won't stop him from
investigating them.
"It's going to be investigated and
brought to the State Attorney for criminal
charges," he said.

for support

Dear Editor:
I would like to thank the citizens of
Clay County for all their support during
the recent elections. I always riiji, my
time on the campaign trail visiting with
the. people who. I have served for nearly
16 years as their S:' hn:i Board Member.
It h:i 1.-lh my, distinct honor to do so.
I hope that-my campaign was indica-
tive to the way that I serve the citizens of
our great county.- no nonsense, no false
rhetoric, just hard work and honest lead-
ership. I plan to continue putting people
before politics as I always have. I never
have and never will run a negative cam-
paign which compromises my character,
because there is something worse than
losing an election - luirn: niru's, character.
Winning this past election would not
have been possible without the sup or,t of
my friends and family. Making the tough
decisions I nuiii i n l.r [ .l:, r li elected offi-
cial would not be possible without my
-faith. .

Pinwheels stand for
peace Sept. 21

Dear Editor:
In today's world, peace needs to be-
come more than just a word. On Sept. 21,
2006, Annunciation Catholic School of
Middleburg plans to take part in an inter-
national art and literacy project, Pin-
wheels for Peace, by "planting" pinwheels
with messages of peace at the school on
Blanding Boulevard.
Pinwheels for Peace project is an art
installation-started last.year by two art
teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan
of Coconut Creek, Fla., as a way for stu-
dents to express their feelings about
what's going on in the world and in their
lives. In 2005, groups in over 1,325 lo-
cations throughout the world were spin-
ning pinwheels on Sept.21st.
On that day, there were approximate-
ly 500,000 pinwheels spinning throughout
the world. Locally, Mrs. McLaughlin will
be coordinating the Pinwheels for Peace
project at Annunciation.
This project is non-political. Peace
doesn't necessarily have to be associated
with the conflict of war; it can be related
to violence/intolerance in our daily lives
and throughout the world.
To each of us peace can take on a dif-
ferent meaning, but in the end, it all comes
down to a simple definition: a state of
calm and serenity, with no anxiety, the ab-
sence of violence, and freedom from con-
flict or disagreement among people or
groups of people.

Hey lady, open your eyes in voting booth


Sometimes it's a mistake just to pick
up the phone.
Have you have ever had one of those
moments when you.pick up the phone
and 'u iifluin liil-,i \ r .lli o-: ,.Ii're in for
,.in I :' r-l ,n.hni,: r .
Like the automated campaign many
Clay Coun-\ r-isilrnt g: ih-, weekend
before the lriii ary ,:ietI ii,.,n If phone calls
were pennies we'd all be millionaires.
There have to a lot of political con-
sultants enjoying some healthy profits, if
the number of c,;lll ,1-te .i ll got at home
was representative of the entire state.
The problem isthat telephone'market-
ing is extremely cheap. It definitely beats
direct mail and television spots. Chances
are it even tops newspaper advertising in
terms of return on investments.
But when was the last time you said
dirty words to a newspaper ad like the
ones you may have spewed at the 17th
telephone call you got on Saturday or
Sunday night before the primary? Prob-
ably not very often, that's for sure.
Anyway, back to making a mistake to
pick up the telephone.
It was definitely the case Thursday
morning when a woman called hopping
mad that Clay Today reported on a prob-
lem at Precinct 502 in' Middleburg. She
may have hung up even madder.
It seems several voters who -should
have gotten ballots that included the
District 2 Clay County Commissioner

Republican race between Ronnie Cole-
man and Doug Curii, 'lii., poll workers
mistakenly gave them ballots without
the race
One District 2 resident cast her bal-
lot, then realized it was in error and told
the poll workers, who explained she
couldn't vote again. Upset, she called the
Supervisor of Elections Office to com-
plain. The problem was then corrected
but not before several people apparent-
ly got the wrong ballot.
Our story quoted Jerile Bailey of the
Supervisor of Elections Office as saying
that while the poll workers made.a mis-
take, it is ultimately the voter's respon-
sibility to catch the error before they cast
the ballot and ask for the correct ballot.
In other words: Everyone involved
has to take responsibility for the error.
That brings us back to the telephone
caller, who was angry that the Clay
Today reporter hadn't talked to more
voters to get their leacit:io to Bailey's

We need this siun-aIn arn others like

a very small scale, of how government

Did the poll workers make a mis-

should get more training to see it does-

Annunciation Catholic School art stu-
dents will create pinwheels of all shapes
and sizes. As part of the creation process,
the students will write their thoughts
about "war and peace/tolerance/ living in
harmony with others" on one side. On the
other side, they will draw, paint, collage,
etc. to visually express their'feelings. The
students will assemble these pinwheels
and on International Day of Peace, they
will "plant" their pinwheels at the school
as a public statement and art-exhibit/in-
stallation
On Sept. 21 keep a lookout for the pin-
wheels - the spinning of the pinwheels in
the wind will spread thoughts and feelings
about peace throughout the country and
the world!

Little talk at SB hearing

I attended the budget meeting of the

open and spirited dialogue between home-
owners and board members about the pro-

it will bring to homeowners. The reality
was there were only two homeowners
there with questions of spending and a
school board that is a puppet for the
school system. I think if the proposed
budget had been published in the paper
before the meeting there would have more
homeowners there voicing concerns (I
hope the people in this county are not as
apathetic as it appeared). -
For all those who missed it we were
supposed to have a 7.975 rollback in the
millage this year. Instead the board voted
to increase the millage by 10.43 percent.
To put that in more concrete terms my
school taxes will go up well over 100 per-
cent this year as compared to the fair
market value of my house only going up 19
percent. A board member tried to hide
behind the statement that thei- l. i,ri does
not set fair market values of rornr -. Iuii .
only sets millage rates. Before any dia-
logue could be had with a member of the
audience- the chairperson stopped the
board member from continuing. I have no
problem with the 19 p. -:reni, increase in
the value of my home. I have a big prob-
lem with taxes going up higher then the in-
crease of the market value.
The board voted on five areas of in-
crease. After-each increase was read the
chairperson asked for discussion. NOT
ONCE did any board member ask for dis-
cussion or question any part of the pro-
posed budget. I think this school board is
a puppet for the school system and are not

representatives of the people who elected
them. If they were truly representing the
homeowners and folks who elected them
they would hear the outcry that we don't
want any additional taxes.
I don't think this board is a good stew-
ard of our money. They slam homeowners
by raising taxes but are not making any at-
tempts to find funding and additional
monies from the myriad of sources that
are available from businesses, state and
federal levels..
My school board member lost my vote
for reelection tonight. I- hope that other
homeowners will look at the numbers on
their own tax bills and look at the issues
facing, the board and how your board
member is voting. You may bw ,nr, p',,s--

Keep win in perspective

Dear Editor:
On Tuesday, District 4 selected a Re-
publican candidate to be our next county
commissioner with 1,200 votes. Let's put
that in perspective. It means this com-
missioner was elected by one percent of
the registered voters in Clay County and
will be part of a five-seat commission rep-
resenting 175,000 residents. In reality, of
the total Clay County population, less than
one' percent (.6%) even knows who this.
person is. That is absolutely frightening.
There is no accountability to the elec-
torate in this outcome (district wide or
countywide).
This is the result of single-member

ie Nloo's, Fleming Island


district election. This IS the nature of the
beast.
This will not. change over time (some-
where "out there" in the future). It didn't
work on Tuesday and it won't work in
2008, 2010 or beyond. This is what it will
always be.
The Clay County Charter Review Com-
mission came up with an expansion of the
single-member districts that will add the
element of accountability. In it, they want
us to add two positions to the commission,
which are elected by the entire county.
The key to accountability is that the more
people who have an opportunriiti, elect a
person, the greater the accountability
there is in that position because he/she is
responsible to larger numbers of people.
One of these two positions is an elect-
ed chair. This means that every four years,
someone will have to stand up and tell
'Clay County what it is.they want to do for
us. Then we get to decide in four years if
they did or not. It's another layer of ac-
countability:.
The final element in the five single/two
at-large model is that the Charter Review
wants to limit commissioner salaries so
moving to this form of government doesn't
-cost us any more money than we're al-
ready spending. That means we could use
the voter's 2004 decision to go to single-
nmember districts as a stepping stone to a
form of government that has more checks
and balances.
Clay County - a commissioner elected
by 1,200 of the 175,000 people in this
county is not a true representative form of
government.

BCC tackles solid waste, intelligent transportation


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer
GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The Board of
County Commissioners (BCC) faced a full
agenda when Commissioners gathered for
its regular meeting Tuesday, Sept. 12.
The proposed .budget for fiscal year
2006 - 2007 produced a decrease in mill-
age but an increase in taxes. The reason
for this seeming contradiction is an in-
crease in property values. As a matter-of-
fact, the increase in property value made
it possible to reduce the millage, a situa-
tion County Manager Fritz Behring says he
hopes will repeat next year.
Several members of the audience, at-
tending the first of two public hearings,
were not enthusiastic.
Gladie Pleasants told the commission-
that her taxes had increased more than
$400 over last year. Assistant Property
Appraiser Roger Suggs explained that the
deadline for filing a petition with the Value
Adjustment Board had passed but told her
that citizens could come to the Property
Appraiser's office anytime to discuss their
situation. When Pleasants asked when-she
could do so, Suggs asked her to step to the
back of the room and they would discuss it
immediately.
Shirley Ann Fletcher told the Commis-
sion, "My problem is similar to (Pleas-
ants'). so I guess I need to back there, too."
And she did.
Douglas Main had a different problem.
"I live in Palatka," he said, "but I own prop-
erty in Clay County. People that don't live
on the land they own are getting taxed off
it." He went on i., -ili th: people moving
into the county are responsible for the ris-
ing costs and they should have to pay their
own way..He asked, "What happens to
those of us on fixed incomes if we can't pay
our taxes?"
Commissioner George Bush explained

that the impact fees charged by the County
, are intended to assign the cost of new infra-
structure to those who make it necessary.


Judy Gait complained that she-had not
been notified of the public hearing. She
was told, however, that the notice was in-
cluded with her TRIM (Truth in millage) no-
tification.
At the end of the public hearing, the
Commission approved a millage rate of
8.7536 and a budget of $245,820,136.
The next public hearing will be held
Sept. 26 at 5:05 p.m.
Turning to other matters, the Commis-
sion heard a presentation by Slade Duke,
senior project manager of Government
Services Group, regarding a non-ad val-
orem assessment for the collection of solid
waste. The study was conducted in antici-
pation of the county's move to universal
collection of refuse.
The bottom line was that, for the first
nine months of the program, the home-
owner would be billed $11.23 per morth.
After that, an assessment of $147 would
appear on the homeowner's tax bill.
Duke told the Commission that he had
a proposed ordinance for their considera-
tion that would have to be approved im-
mediately to meet required legal
advertising deadlines. Chairman Glenn
Lassiter took exception. He demanded,
"You're asking us to approve an ordinance
we haven't even seen?" The matter was de-
ferred to the next BCC meeting Sept. 26.
As transportation woes continue to
plague the First Coast, a coalition of pub-
lic and private entities under the leader-

ship of the Metropolitan Planning Organi-
zation (MPO) formed to "plan, coordinate,
obtain funding and implement ITS (intelli-


gent transportation systems) projects that
will improve ... regional transportation
systems."
Wayne Spaulding of MPO told the
BCC that planning is well advanced to
implement a system within month$ and
that a website will be available in two or
three weeks.
Victoria Pennington explained that the
511 system associated with ITS also will
be available shortly.
The two systems together will enable
motorists to determine driving conditions
before they reach a problem and will help
them select alternate routes. Information
on the two systems.may be gotten at
jax511.com and firstcoastmpo.com.
At the point in the meeting that Com-
missioners share their thoughts and com-
ments:
Commissioner Pat McGovern told
Commissioners that he had learned that
the County may use Federal funds for the
planning of College Drive north exten-
sion. He also said that the owner of Ft.

Raffle to help


Firemen's Fund


Clay Today staff
ORANGE PARK- An Orange Park man
known as a football fanatic is asking
the public for donations to support
local firefighters.
Ed Lasater, a former New England
resident who known as the Super Pat
Fan, is selling $5 raffle tickets for a
new 42-inch plasma television set.
Proceeds will go to the Clay County
Firemen's fund. The winner will be
drawn Sunday, Sept. 17, during an an-
nual NFL kickoff party at. Lasater's
Ridgecrest home.
Lasater said he is helping firefight-


ers because their salaries are too low
and that's hurting moral. A contributing
factor is Lasater's daughter was seri-
al, l., injured in an automobile accident
in Jacksonville earlier this year .
"Without the firemen, she and her three
friends could have died," Lasater said.
Lasater also plans to appear with
local TV and radio personalities Jeff
Prosser and Dan Hicken to promote
the event.
Donation jars and raffle tickets are
available at all Clay. County Fire Res-
cue stations, several Orange Park
businesses or by calling Lasater at
(904) 207-2982.

Hipps had worked hard on the project and
that he is "... a 100%, died in the wool

OPUMC hosting Ten Thousand Villages sale


Special to Clay Today
ORANGE PARK - Orange Park United
Methodist Church will invest in the lives of

"This is a fabulous way for people to pur-

Orange Park names Buttner as special magistrate h


By Debbie Israel Messer
Staff Writer
ORANGE PARK - The Orange Park Town
Council has chosen Frederic "Rick" But-
tner III as special magistrate, a contract-
ed position.
The special magistrate will replace the
town's i.ode ernfOiirc'meni board in han-
dling the zonirng andJ pladnring code issues..
Buttner, \tno has had a private laww
practice on Park Ar.riee ic o'-e rt CR 220,
is a Jai'.l.ksoriM E rnalle \
As an attorney , since 1995. But.nerr
worked for three 'eea.rs in the Sitate Aior-
ney's Office in Ja: kiiion\ lle. then for a firm
representing dci~r sin m:ldi:.:i malprac-
tice, and has had his own practice for the
last seven years.
The council's action came after sever-
al months of discussion that included con-
sistent no. votes from Council member
Phyllis Renninger who objected to replac-
ing the town's code enforcement board
with the special magistrate.
The move to have a special-magistrate
was initiated by Council member Robert
Standifer.
Standifer has said he decided to pursue
the idea of a special rnii.,rr-re after hear-
ing about and then seeing the special mag-
istrate used by Green Cove Springs in action.
That -special magistrate is Rob
Brjdle. who occupies the position of town
attorney for Orange'Park.
The town approved the ordinance creat-
ing the p'ii i ftn rie di 'n. u -A io,, at, several

code enforcement board was difficult, in

Throughout the process to consider the
change, Renninger voted no-on the proposal.

Neely, who oversees code enforcement for
the town, reviewed the resumes with a re-
sulting recommendation of Buttner to the
council for the position.
Bowles said Buttner's experience in
the State Attorney's office, being a local
attorney and experience with real estate
and'property issues were deciding factors
for him %hen mnal.in the . choice.
Bradley worked with Buttner at the
State itorne''s. Office.
The council has asked Bowles and
Bradley to negotiate a contract with But-


tner, and return to the council for ap-
proval of the contract.
That contract will include the rate to
be paid to Buttner. Bradley told the coun-
cil that the rate would pay for hours of re-
search and preparation and hearing time
but not travel time.
Buttner says he expects there to be
heated controversy at times. "It's the na-
lure . if the buLiir:e s." he said.
Buttner says while he does not have

has representril builders and Jt-'lhipers-
in closing property, r .n-: i elrion-.
"Tilhe, can't sell until there is compli-
ance with the law," said Buttner.

School District workshop tackles district's future


By Debbie Israel Messer,
Staff Writer
FLEMING ISLAND - School board members
met twice Thursday, September 7: once in
the afternoon for a special workshop to dis-
cuss the district's strategic plan and then in
the evening for a special meeting.
The special meeting culminated months
of discussion concerning the future of the
district ending in the adoption of the Inter-
local Agreement (ILA) and the Educational
Facilities Plan necessary to move ahead
with school concurrency.
The Interlocal Agreement is making the
rounds to other local governments with Or-
ange Park approving the ILA on September
5, Keystone Heights on September 12, with
consideration by Green Cove Springs slated
to occur on September 19.
The county will consider the ILA at the
end of the month.
The ILA defines level of service for the
schools in the district, the desired level of
service at 100% and the means .by which
the level of service will be accomplished.
The facilities plan is considered part of
the ILA as it describes projected facility
needs for the district .lin in�i the next five
years. .
�The i,,ar ajol.,ii, the next -:-.,:i1 ,,j_- ";


total millage rate of 7.779 mills and the
final 2006-07 budget which totals"
$381,309,106in spending.
The budget includes funding for numer-
ous capital improvement projects including
construction of an elementary school.
Coppergate Elementary is located near
the intersection of CR 220 and CR209. Cop-
pergate is under construction and is sched-
uled to open in August 2007.
While other schools are not slated for
construction during the year, there will be
design activity during the year for addition-
al schools slated for fir irr :years, including
elementary schools for Lake Asbury, one for
Oakleaf and a third south of Green Cove
Springs.
The replacement of. re II:. :ill class-
roi.miri. a Charles E. Bennett Elementary in
Green Cove Springs is also scheduled for
the coming year.
Replacement of relocatables in the dis-
trict will be a major effort during the' next
five years. The board now has a policy in
place of replacing relocatables classrooms
that are more than 30.years old.
'3SiI2r _r i:- Plan
As board members took 0 ili t fir: ,:r i. l
at updatiiig, thI ! i li tri:t's strategic plan;,
Deputy u.,irmlitilrit Ben Wortham told
Iiim ih, exercise was just i-- r fitI-.. step in


a process designed to continue throughout
-the school year.
"We want to be able to complete the up-
date of the strategic plan by then so that the
first year of the plan will dovetail with this
next fiscal year," said Wortham.
Wortham said the intent was to gain
board input on needs, issues and concerns,
followed by input from the district's strate-
gic planning committee (composed of dis-
trict administrators) after which a
composite list of strategies would return to
the board for approval.
Those iijiragi-s would then be incor-
porated into the strategic plan.
Subsequent to the board's approval, ac-
tion teams, chaired by district administra-
tors, would work to establish the necessary
steps for accomplishing each strategy.
Discussion of the process prompted
Ii.J,: :. i'-i 1,v board members about parent
involvement. School board member Lisa
Graham asked where in the process parents
would be asked for their input.
An initial reaction from staff was that
parent input would come at the action team
1 :2- ui, then Wortham said it would be up,
to individual action team chairs to decide
whether parents would be asked to be part
of the committee.
Board chair Carol Vallencourt .ai 1 "The


board may want .t6 require that parents be
on the teams."
Superintendent David Owens said that
he didn't want it (the process) to get " like
it did before." Owens said in a prior process
more than ten years ago that some strate-
gies were thrown out because they were not
possible resulting in a lot of" hurt feelings."
Wortham has now indicated that all
schools are being asked to include parents,
during the month of September in the plan-
ning process.
He said he expects that schools will in-
clude the request for input as part of their
School Advisory Committee (SAC), School
Improvement Program (SIP), or Parent Fac-
ulty Association (PFA) meetings.
He said if no such meetings were sched-
uled, he e.- p-.-' l ' . ll . ii - . .ir\ilijirlea ln oppor-
tunity for such input by the end of September.
Wt ilaini encouraged board members to
offer ideas regarding issues, needs and con-
cerns they thought would be important for
the next five-year planning period from
2007-2012.
Board members listed their concerns
including -ifi, a n.ii .n rili, communica-
tion needs, teacher recruitment and reten-
tion, and the need to make board meetings

Investors eye GCS spot for 'upscale' restaurant


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer

GREEN COVE SPRINGS - The City of
Green Cove Springs is undergoing a ren-
aissance of sorts. The recently concluded
visioning committee produced a detailed
report that painted a glowing picture of
the city's future. The City Council has
taken the report-to heart and is already at
work preparing the ground for growth. Or-
dinances have been amended. Others are
being looked at with an.eye to amendment.
But, as frequently happens, varied in-
terests find themselves in conflict.
Such was the case when Bill Gause,
vice president of Wheeler Investment'


Group Inc., approached the City Council at
its rescheduled meeting Wednesday, Sept.
6, seeking help in resolving a conflict.
Wheeler told the council, "In recent
weeks I have taken the opportunity to
showcase our city to a group of investors
from Jacksonville." He said the group is
"very interested" in bringing an upscale
restaurant to the city. They would like to
build on US 17 and they want to sell alco-
holic beverages.
Therein lies a problem. Zoning along
US 17 is C-2 General Commercial. This
zone stipulates that no alcoholic sales may
take place within 1,000 feet of a church.
And, says Gause, "There are so 'many
churches along 17 that more than 75 per-
cent of the street is excluded."


Planning and Zoning Coordinator Lee
Bentley pointed out, however, "The near-
by central business district permits the
sale and consumption of alcoholic bever-
ages as close as 500 feet from a church or
school or is separated from the church or
school by a street or highway." He sug-
gested that a similar provision might be
included in the C-2 zoning district.
Bentley told the council that no action
was expected from them at that time but it
would be brought to the Planning and Zon-
ing Board (P and Z) at its 5 p.m. meeting
Sept: 28. That board would look at the re-
quest and return its recommendation to the
City Council at one of its October meetings.
The council discussed the possibility of
including alcoholic sales in restaurants as


a special exception in the C-2 district.
Councilman Mike Kelter objected. "I'm not
in favor of a special exception," he said.
Vice-mayor John Buchanan noted,
"The Saratoga Springs development im-
mediately to the west of Green Cove
Springs will undoubtedly have zoning cat-
egories to accommodate such an estab-
lishment." He said he was not in favor of
losing opportunities.
The council expressed a general inter-
est in finding a solution to the problem and
approved its submission to P and Z.
Following the unanimous vote to refer
the matter to P and Z, City Attorney Jim
Arnold cautioned the council, "Whatever
you do, you must be consistent."

Paris, was a guiding light for the Harlem Re-
naissance in New York, established the Sav-
age Studio of Arts and Crafts and became
the first director of the Harlem Community
Arts Center.
In recent years, interest in Savage has
grown in Green Cove Springs. It has been
fed by the City's recent opportunity to ac-
quire the former Dunbar High School
property, presumably the site of the build-
ing where Savage was born. If the City's
acquisition is successful, plans are to ren-
ovate the gym and classroom buildings
and restore the auditorium. The complex
would be renamed for Savage and be used
for numerous cultural, athletic, and civic
-events.
Earlier this year, the city council re-
tained University of North Florida Profes-
sor Katherine Gill to research and. write
grant proposals for the Dunbar property.
Wednesday, Sept. 6, Gill appeared be-
fore the council with an update of her ac-
tivities to date. The four-page report
included, among many others:
"Contact and rapport with Professor
Leininger-Miller that-led to Florida Hu-
manities Mini-Grant and upcoming lecl,tre
and roundtable"
"Many unpublished photographs of Sav-
age and her work (were) located. Among the
more important of these.is one of Eleanor
Roosevelt and Mary McLeod Bethune in Au-
gusta Savages Harlem studio."
"Request from Florida Humanities
Council to submit proposal for a Major
Grant to fund the publication of a short
book for a general audience."

Gill also outlined a number of grants
that may be available to the City for the ac-
quisition and restoration of the property.
With Gill's presentation complete,
Councilman Mike Kelter voiced some
reservations.
"Books and so on will come," he said.
"Capital funds for buildings are 0. K. but I
am concerned about how we are going to
fund the day-to-day operation of the cen-
ter once it is open."
"We need a plan," Kelter continued.
"It's a good project but look at the Qui Si
Sana. We bought it and then couldn't re-
store it. I'd like to see a whole plan; capi-
tal plus operation and maintenance."
Councilman Matt Tinney objected. ""We
will be capturing history," he said. "Augus-
ta Savage represented Green Cove Springs
before Green Cove Springs represented it-
self. This is an excellent opportunity to-take
advantage of something we lost before be-
cause we didn't do the right thing."

Fundraiser ride for deputy's family


brings hundreds of cycles out in support


1II .


Clay Today staff


ORANGE PARK- More than 200 motorcy-
clists filled Clay County roads on Saturday,
Sept. 9, to help raise funds for a sheriff's
deputy whose wife has been diagnosed
with cancer.
The fundraising event for Deputy
Richard Seeley and his wife, Pamela, filled
much of the Kmart parking lot at Blanding

Lake Ac bury Area Beauty!


Boulevard and Kingsley Avenue with mo-
torcycles.
More than $18,000 was raised for the-
family, said Sheriff's Office spokesperson
Mary Justino. The Fraternal Order of Po-
lice Lodge 104 sponsored the event and
deputies from the CCSO's Community Re-
lations Unit handled the logistics.
More than 50 volunteers from the
agency and the community worked booths,
directed traffic, sold meals, played music
and ran raffles and a silent auction.
"The FOP and our agency members
cannot thank enough all of the many local
businesses that donated supplies, food and
items to this event," Justino said.
More than 80 vendors also got involved
in the effort to help the Seeleys, who have
a 3-month-old daughter.
"We just feel so blessed," Pam Seeley
said after motorcyclists returned from a
60-mile ride. "We had no idea this many,
people would turn out."
She was diagnosed with breast cancer
a two months before the baby was born
and has already begun four to six months
of chemotherapy.
Sheriff Rick Beseler said he was excited

Since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 9,000
Florida Guardsmen have served in the war
on terror, said Adj. Gen. Douglas Burnett.
"Gov. Bush's support of our soldiers
and their families is unprecedented and a
model of emulation for other states in this
nation," Burnett said.
Brig. Gen. Michael Fleming said the
Florida National Guard Foundation came
up with a plan to design and build, the
marker, which would be placed in Camp
Blanding's Memorial Park.
Local businesses also contributed to
the memorial, including Bonnie's Memor-

Florida's commitment to helping its soldiers.
"In Florida we do more to provide
more support for the enlisted men, the re-
servists, and most importantly here today
for the Guard and their families than any
state in the country," he said. "Because a
lot of people have looked into your eyes
and said this is more than appropriate."
Bush said a liberal commentator re-
cently wrote that while he supports the
war, he did not support building monu-
ments to war.
"I think it is appropriate for us to build
monuments for the men and women that
die din the line of duty and to win the war,"
he said. "I think we can do both."
"Today we are here to just that; to pay
tribute to some incredibly courageous men
who have served the Guard and have died
in the line in the duty. I can assure you
that this governor and the next governor
and next governor after that if need be will
not ever believe that they died in vain."

report says. Goss and woman are cur-
rently fighting for custody of the child.
Smith was one of the investigators
who probed the thefts, the report says.
. "While there is no evidence to support
Deputy Robert Smith's motives were to
put Brandon Goss in jail for personal
gains, Deputy Sheriff Robert Smith's ar-
rest of Brandon Goss has an overwhelm-
ing aura of impropriety," the report says.
"The fact that it is believed the informa-
tion developed leading to Brandon Goss'
arrest came from (the female informant)
is one of the problems plaguing the crim-
inal investigation ..." the report says.
The report says Smith should have
maintained only professional and working
relationship with the woman and that a
personal relationship could jeopardize fu-
ture prosecutions of Goss.
Smith told a supervisor he had a rela-
tionship with the woman and that the:.two
had gone camping together, the report says.
Smith had no previous disciplinary ac-
tions during his 10-year Sheriff's Office
career, said Sheriff's Office spokesperson
Mary Justino. -
A separate internal investigation also
determined detectives did not "bug" an in-
fant child of the same confidential inform-
ant when she involved in the purchase of
an-illegal weapon earlier this year.
.Detectives David Vaughan and Greg
Michon had previously told the woman not
to have the child present when making a
drug purchase in May, the report says,
However, the woman took the child when
she was used again, this time in August to
make an illegal weapons purchase for U.S.
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
agents, the. report says.
The investigations began when the
woman was being interviewed by DCF,
which had taken custody of the children.
The woman told a DCF investigator that
she was involved in illegal activity at the
Sheriff's Office's direction and that she
was having a relationship with a deputy.

Kitten killed; man charged
MELROSE - A Melrose man is
charged with throwing a kitten into a pack
of dogs that ripped it apart during a dis-
pute with his neighbors.
James Jared Rutland, 22, is being held
on $25,000 bond-on an animal cruelty
charge following the Aug. 30 incident, the
Clay County Sheriff's Office said.
Rutland is accused of going to the
home of neighbors, who had complained
that he had driven recklessly on their
road, the report says.
When Rutland pulled up at the home
he called over the neighbor's dogs and

then threw the stray kitten into the pack,
which attacked and killed it, the report
says. Detective Annie Henderson said Rut-
land apparently was looking for "a shock
effect" when he threw the stray kitten into
the yard.
Two people in the home, including a 4-
year-old child, witnessed the attack and
recognized the pickup the man was driv-
ing as belong to their neighbor's son,the
report says.
The report-says Rutland fled the scene
and hid his vehicle so deputies couldn't
find him. He was arrested Tuesday, Sept.
12, at his home, the report says.

terman as Henry, and T. J. Horwath as his

sica Palombo was The Mute, who acted as
an elegant, straight-faced stage prop.

often in the play, but in this context it re-

in th6 poem "The Rape of the Lock." It is
not intended to imply actual abuse.

list included addressing "portable versus re-
locatables", ,lo.in at the expansion of the
district office, looking at the capacity of the
bus compound, and considering the future
of having separate junior/senior high
schools in Keystone Heights.
Board member Charles Van Zant who
represents Keystone Heights said he is
asked frequently when that will occur.
Van Zant said he knew the school was
not a the "break point" but that he would
like to know what that was exactly so,"I can
tell people how many students are need to
make that .r ".
Board members said they want to con-
tinue the current- year plan to match fund-
ing raised by individual schools for covered
physical education areas.
Van Zant raised the concern for the
need to move the district office, or some
services provided by the offices, to a more


central location in the county.
Van Zant said,"The county office has a
dirt parking lot and no resources have been
spent improvinhgour own facility,"
Superintendent David Owens said he
would like to see the enactment of an en-
dowment fund for local students who would
pursue teaching careers within the district.
: Safety for the disiri,-i iinlu.led a look at
Internet safety with board members citing
concern about "My Space" web pages.
Not many suggestions were made con-
cerning instruction except to look at in-
forming parents about the purl;e ,of FC \i
and to continue the e .p,sure of elementary
students to art and music.
Wortham emphasized this a continu-
ing process and that as ides are generat-
ed by board members that can be added
later as well.

ly disappearing.",
Draper agrees, adding, "Each painting
is a journey. I work with an image until I
am able to reach beyond the form and into
another place... a place of deeper mean-

look at nature and draw lessons from it,"
said Draper. "I look at the resilient nature
of a palm tree and see a spirit that can
sustain everything from isolation to ,dep-
ravation to.hurricanes, wind and even
fire...To me, they have a real story to tell."
AmSouth Bank, which is doubling its
presence in Clay County this year, is the
exhibit's major sponsor.

pleased to be part of this extraordinary
community, but more importantly to be
part of the growing arts community. As
Clay County continues to grow, we believe
strongly that art belongs at the forefront
of that growth."

Impact fees
FROM PAGE 1A

multi-family (to $2,933 from $3,326)
units and for mobile homes ($5,420 from
$5,979).
The BCC has approved two previous
recommendations for impact fees, in 2003
and 2005, with no change from the school
board's recommendation.
Board members heard from consultant
Ken Creveling, of Urbanomics, about the
reasons why the fee would be reduced, the
majority of which were based on a set of
assumptions, some of which changed from
the prior fee approval process
Board members approved all of the
assumptions on which the analysis was
built in board meetings held in the last few
months.
Creveling explained that the computa-
tion of the fee involved determining the


cost of student stations
He said he expected the state Depart-
ment of Education's standard amount for
student station cost to closely relate to
then district's actual costs. -
Board member Wayne Bolla has asked
in the past that the district use the actual
cost of construction of the student stations
citing the district's experience that their
cost was higher than the DOE standard.
The board approved the use of the
DOE cost factor for use iii this study.
The board also approved thle use of a
five-year credit period versus a 20-year
period used in the past in his previous
studies, which also resulted in a lower fee.
One additional change in the calcula-
tion that resulted in the lower fee involved
the receipt of Classroom for Kids (class-
size reduction funds) dollars to the tune of
38 million. While those funds are to be
used to reduce class sizes across the dis-
trict down to classrooms, the district also
used those funds for growth.


Using that as a precedent, Creveling
used a portion of those funds to develop
the calculation that resulted in the lower
fee.
The school board's new policy of re-
placing existing relocatables in the district
also affected the calculation.
Only a portion of those relocatables
will be replaced in any one year. The pol-
icy indicates relocatables that are more
than 30 years old will be replaced.
Fore the coming year, for example that
means that 245 relocatables are sched-
uled to be replaced. The district currently
has. 1108 relocatables being used as
classrooms. '
The district's reliance on relocatables
has resulted in 45 percent of the student
stations being found in those relocatables.
This is the third time the board has
adopted a recommendation for the resi-
dential building impact fee.
The current fee of $7,034, adopted in
2005, would normally be reviewed two


years after its adoption by the BCC and if
not renewed or changed, would otherwise
sunset.
However, according to Assistant Su-
perintendent Mike Elliot, new state law
requires that before an impact fee is con-
sidered for approval by the BCC, it must
be before the public for 90 days.
Elliot said that the intent of the. new
legislation is to revisit the fees based on"
current and localized data."
If the district followed previous
process timelines, the approval of the fee,
with the 90 day review period might result
in a period of time during which the fee
might sunset, or would otherwise not be in
place.
- Creveling noted that the district's
growth may "even out in the future."
Board members approved the new fee,
which will be conveyed to the BCC for ac-
tion. The timeframe for that conveyance
has not yet been set.

Cancer Society expects


3,000 for Sept. 30 walk


Special to Clay Today

ORANGE PARK.-The American Cancer
Society's 3rd Annual Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer 5K walk, present-
ed by St. Vincent's Medical Center, will be
held on Saturday, Sept. 30, at 9. a.m. at
Orange Park Town Hall.
More than 3,000 walkers are expect-
ed to participate to raise $45,000 in the
fight against breast cancer. The morning
will begin-at 7:30 as Town Hall is filled
with fun for the whole family - entertain-
ment, food, and games for the kids.
The walk will start at 9 a.m. M along
beautiful River Road and return to Town Hall.
This nationwide event enables the
American Cancer.Society to continue to
tigtii i'ea'st cancer in our community and
to continue increasing research in the
cause, prevention, and cure for this terri-
ble disease. It also gives everyone -
young, old, men, women and children - an-
opportunity to raise money to help the
fight against breast cancer.
Event chair Susan Harrist said: "I am
so proud to be a part of this great event to
bring .w rern, s s .f breast cancer to the
Clay County area and also to raise need-.
ed funds to'fight the disease. The event
promises: to be a morning of great fun


GCS council
FROM PAGE 14A
'Later in the meeting, City Manager
Don Bowles said, "Of course it's going to
take an operational budget, we owned it
20 or 30 years ago but couldn't afford to
run it."
Vice-mayor John Buchanan agreed,
"We need a financially responsible plan."
Mayor Debbie Ricks told the council,
"The grants are not focusing on books; we
need money for acquisition and renova-
tion. As a city we need to be visionaries."


while helping to remember and honor
those touched by breast cancer and to
raise money to fight breast cancer."
Participants come from all walks of
life...cancer survivors and their families
and friends; American Cancer Societyvol-
unteers, teams from corporations, hospi-
tals, schools, churches and law .firms.
- "There's still plenty of time to form a
team," said Jeani Murray, event co-chair.
"Sign up on-line or call the American Can-
cer Society for an information packet. It's.
such a great event helping to fight a dis-
ease that is so familiar to many of us,
,.., , ,., r will want to be a part of it.
There are so many teamsthat are in
honor of friends currently battling breast
cancer. This is such great way to show
their support and help fight the disease."
The community event brings a lot of
fun, with radio station 88.1-FM The
Promise, local entertainment including
Ridgeview and Orange Park High School
Dance Teams, cheerleaders, clowns and
many activities for kids.
All breast cancer survivors are invit-
ed to participate in the walk. Each will re-
ceive a complimentary T-shirt and are
invited to the breast cancer survivors' cel-
ebration after the walk donated by
Crispers.


Councilman Bob Page cut to the
chase. "I suggest we fund Dr. Gill as proj-
ect leader. This is a beautiful first phase
plan for acquisition. Until we acquire the
property, we'll bumble and stumble along.
I'd like to see phase one - acquisition;
phase two - renovation; and phase three
- operation. We need to fund Dr. Gill to
develop a phased plan."
Bowles said, "Getting these grants will
lead to bigger ones. Katherine's on the
right track; she needs to be supported."
The council authorized Gill to contin-
ue-working on the acquisition of grants.

Orange Park

track coach to

be honored

Track field to bear his
name before Sept. 22
game against Clay

By Horace Davis
Sports Writer
ORANGE PARK - When the Orange Park
Raiders suit up to play county-rival Clay
High on Sept. 22 the game will take0on
much more significance than a win or a
loss for either of the two teams fighting it
out on the field.
The administration at Orange Park High
School decided to.honor longtime cross-
country and track coach Don Hall by nam-
ing the track field at Hoyt B. Cotney
Stadium after him, the'longtime coach has
.el.n-t :'inil,.-. hout s volunteering with the
school and working with the track program.
"The 81-year old Hall who has been in-
ducted into the Florida High School Ath-
letic Hall of Fame as well as the Orange
Park Hall of Fame has been a coach for 48
years and at the school since 1955 said,
"I just enjoy working with the kids and it

really does something for my heart when
I see them come back."
Orange Park athletic director, Clayton
Anderson said, "This has been long time
coming for Mr. Hall, he is. an institution'
.and you could not ask for a better role
model than him."
The track field will now bear the name
Don Hall Track at Hoyt B. Cotney Stadium
and Anderson went on to say, "-He has
meant so much to the school and the kids
are very fortunate to -have him around,
there is.no better time to honor a man like
him than now."

St. Johns falls

on the road

By Horace Davis
Sports Writer
ORANGE PARK-The upstart football pro-
gram of the St. Johns Spartans took their
show on the road last Friday as they paid
a visit to Lake City Christian and although-
they lost46-17 there were some positive
signs according to first year head coach
Rodney.DuBose.
"Offensively, I believe we v. r.-1 iii
Execution is the key to our offense and we
had only 2 turnovers but we also had 2
takeaways."
After falling behind 8-0 on an early
score by Lake City Christian, 'the Spartans
answered back as senior 'quarterback
Robert,Ballantine hit senior running back
Will Buehn with a strike for a 78-yard
: touchdown pass to close the score to 8-7..
However, defensively St. Johns had trou-
h.. i,,.,pi, the run and Lake City Christian
-scored 22 unanswered .- ,ini; ,: r :i' a 30-7
lead before the opening quarter ended.
"Their running back had too much speed
for our unit, we could not catch him once he
got around the corner. But part of the prob-
lem was a few blown assignments and that
will always cost you," added DuBose.
' In spite of the large first quarter deficit,,
St. Johns fought their way back as Ballan-
tine and Buehn hooked up again with a 17-
yard pass and catch for another touchdown.
Buehn also added a 30-yard field goal to
complete the scoring for the Spartans.
"I truly believe we showed signs of im-
provement and that's our goal is to get
better every time we step on the field.
However, we must do a better job tack-
ling," said DuBose.

Wheelchair

bodybuilder

successfully

defends title

By Horace Davis
Sports Writer
ORANGE PARK - A few months
ago we ran a story on Wheelchair
Bodybuilding Champion Josh Dil-
laberry, the Orange Park man
who was born with cerebral palsy
and has overcome the disability
to win the Debbie Kruk Classic
last year in Daytona Beach. On
Aug. 26 Dillaberry returned to
Daytona Beach to defend his title
and after the scorecards were
.displayed the Orange Park man
became Debbie Kruk's two-time.
champion by defeating Herb An--
derson from Jacksonville.


Herb Anderson, left, was runner-up to defending champion
Josh Dillaberry.


The reigning champion Dillaberry strikes a pose for the crowd
and judges.


District play opens with key

contests for area teams


By Horace Davis
Sports Writer
ORANGE PARK - This Friday's football
schedule opens the all important district
play for area teams and can determine who
will go on to play in the state playoffs and
who will return home. Yes its just one game
but it's the opening game and each team
would like to start district play with a win.
Here is a brief look at the district
slate-
Orange Park at Fletcher - The Raiders
got off to a slow start against Ridgeview
but turned it on against Forrest in their
second game with running back Brian
Sumlar leading a strong running attack.
While the Senators from Fletcher
opened the, season with back-to-back
blowout losses against two tough opponents
in Jackson. and Sandalwood they rebound-
ed to defeat Englewood 26-7 last week.
This game last year was a stumbling
block for the Raiders in which they never
recovered and failed to make the playoffs,
however, look for the senior laden Raiders
to have learned from the pounding to took
from Fletcher and repay the favor. But
they must stay away from turnovers for a
different result.
Pick -Orange Park in a close one
Clay at Atlantic - The Blue Devils have
dropped their opening three games but all.
have come against tough opponents.


Clay should get into the win column as
.Atlantic brings an 0-2 record into this
contest and are not a very good team.
Pick - Clay in a laugher . -
Middleburg at Ridgeview - Both teams
enter with one win but Ridgeview's came
over Menendez who have lost 16 straight,
While Middleburg pulled off a dramatic
comeback on the road at Santa Fe.
Each team is young and has a sopho-
more leading the offense but Middleburg has
-more seniors and may be better offensively.
Pick - Broncos hold off Panthers
Fleming Island at Nease - The Golden
Eagles passed their first test against Clay
but this week is a tougher test and will de-
termine if Fleming Island has enough fire-
power offensively and defensively to make
a run at their first playoff berth.
Nease destroyed Memphis University
High, a state champion in their opening
game and shutout their next opponent.
Pick - Hard to pick against the reigning
4A champs but Fleming Island keeps it close
Keystone at Bolles - Last year the In-
dians held their own for the first 18 min-
utes and had a 6-0 lead until the Bolles
machine got running.
The Bulldogs have outscored all three
opponents 165 to 28 this season and it ap-
pears Corky Rogers and the Bulldogs are-
taking no prisoners.
Pick - Bolles wins big

FROM PAGE 3B
of those sophomores is the starting quar-
terback Derek Hatcher who on the second
play from scrimmage was picked off by
Bears safety Mark Safer who returned it
inside the one to setup the first score for
Bartram on the night.-
That turnover was the beginning of
the end for Ridgeview as Bartram forced
four turnovers in the first quarter to build
a 21-0 lead.
Things got no better for the Panthers
in the second quarter, the defense could
not stop the high-octane Bear offense and
Ridgeview's offense could not achieve any
momentum or sustain a drive as Bartram
built a 45-0 halftime lead.
When asked about his. approach at
halftime, Coach MacPherson remarked.
"We stunk on offense, we stunk on de-
fense, what else can you say?
"The days are gone when you could
break loose in the locker room without
landing in trouble. We will just to try and
get some kind of scheme to work."
If their was a moral victory of .0 1r
for Ridgeview it came in il-r1, :1.--nd
half, although Bartram ('nil. U: 1i.1
maintain a good hard defend: -r ie P.jin-
thers began to show a more solid de-
fensive effort.
There wasn't many bright spots for
Ridgeview but in the second half the de-
fense allowed just ten points which led
Ridgeview'fan, Tameria Wilford to com-
ment, "They didn't beat us up as bad and
it was more enjoyable this half."
However, Coach MacPherson re-
sponded with, "We were playing their
third team the second half, even though
they only scored 10 in the final two we
still played bad on both sides of the ball.
We were outplayed and out coached on
both sides of the ball."
Ridgeview will try to get back on the
winning track as they host district and
county rival Middleburg on Friday.

ORANGE PARK - Just a few weeks ago,
actually the second game of the season,
Fleming Island's volleyball team delivered
a blow to the psyche of Orange Park's
Lady Raiders who entered the season with
high expectations, the Eagles swept the
Raiders in a commanding three games.
But on Thursday, Sept. 7 Orange Park
returned the favor with a high-octane, in-
tensified attack and swept the Lady Ea-
gles 26-24, 25-20 and 25-23 in front of a
large, ri uticu - crowd at-the Raider Dome.
Coincidentally it was also Fleming Island's
first loss of the season and Orange Park
was happy to deliver it.
"When the season began I told you
how good we could be," said Raider coach
Amy Walker.
"For the most part we have played
1 :iit ihru icn'hut the season but tonight we
really put it all together. In previous
matches we excelled in one area but not
in another but tonight it all came togeth-
er, the girls came out really focused and
took care of business, they did not fall
apart when we fell behind, they really
showed the mental toughness I know they
li,: e " .h,'idd d jll.er.
The mental toughness Walker spoke
about appeared in the first game of the
match, after trailing most of the game and
talrhn behind 24-18, and on the brink of
the opening game loss, the Raiders roared
back to snatch the game away 26-24:.
Six-foot senior right side hitter Kim
Postma had much to do with the comeback


as she asserted herself jiI ileli', ereI sev-
eral kills and the Eagles committed sever-
al unforced errors down tr i-h� sii:hli di
ultimately cost them the opening game.
"We did commit t many errors but
'Orange Park played a. great game
tonight," said Fleming Island first year
coach Bree Feist.
- "Their defense was'outstanding; they
picked a lot of balls up off the ground and
prevented u. fhionJi puttinir any away. But
we'll bounce back," she added.
Orange PF' il lI lhini in the 2nd and
3rd games as well, however, they showed
great resiliency in coming back.
Postma led ti :tiii.l in and around
the net, at one juncture in the second
game; she combined with Gina Gilikin on
a block as Fleming Island advanced to the
net, then she added consecutive overpow-
ering kills to put the Raiders up 20-18.
Kira Crehore then made the lead stand
with two service points and two aces.
Sophomore Taylor Martin finished off
game two with a kill that put Orange Park
on the verge off the sweep.
"We've had some intense practices of
late and it li, r [ri nngig r, the girl ili-
played the intensity I've been looking for
all season. We have also talked about
being more creative offensively and Alli-
son Riner delivered that from the setter
spot with timely passing and the v. hole
team communicated well. In addition we
moved S,:arh Mrl.arr to the liber, position
and she answered the id.lii derfen.t in. On
a whole everyone played well and Kim

Whitey's crowns classic champions in season finale'


By TL Cochran
Correspondent

DOCTORS LAKE - All season long fisher-
man jockeyed for position for the final
showdown at Whitey's Fish Camp on Sat-
urday afternoon dubbed the 'Classic".
With $1300 on the line as. the first place
prize 20 teams vied for the title and the big
money. After all the boats returned and
many fish weighed, the Stalvey family swept
the top two positions as Jerry Stalvey and
J.T. Bernard grabbed top money honors and
Jerry's son Lee Stalvey and his fishing part-
ner Troy Ray placed second.
"We had a good limit by .7:30 this
morning," said Jerry Stalvey..
"But then we didn't catch any fish
from 7:45 until we made it back here
about a hour ago," he added.
J.T. Bernard added, "We caught 48
fish today, we caught fish under docks and
we caught about seven or eight here under
.the 220 Bridge."
The second place team of Lee Stalvey
and Troy Ray were the final qualifiers into
the Classic and they surprised some of the


old timers with their strong finish to take
home $800 and Stalvey said, "We caught
35 fish today, we were catching them so
fast this morning that we didn't have time
to cull any out. I counted 30 of them right
off the brush pile in Lake George."
Momentum played a big roll in the
success of Matt Dortch and Joey Holt
who finished third, "It was.a long hot day.
We didn't catch a fish until late. We had
two small ones this morning then the last
two fish came right before weigh-in,"
said Dortch.
Just a few weeks ago we where in
29th place but we started finishing in the
money and dragged ourselves into the
classic," added Holt.
Brian Clark and James Macko won the
Big Fish portion of the tournament. -
It's been a record-breaking season for
the tournament as the North Florida Bass
Masters Club,and the fisherman donated
over $6000 for Community Hospice of
North East Florida.
In 'addition over $29,000 in prize
money w., Ii i:1 iiled to the fisherman

Playing

Hooky

"Vance, pay ATTENTION," the teacher
would yell when I was a kid. in school. Did-
n't she know that my thoughts were on
something far more important than learn-
ing division? Oh sure, I saved the planet on
occasion, as we all did once in a while, but


'Playing Hooky' is very important business


my mind often .' nri [iri:,, ni hunting or
jjI. 11l.iin i liniig through the open coun-
tryside - anywhere but that classroom
where I had to sit still beneath the artificial
lighting. 'Hey', I thought, and likely sug-
gested at times, 'there's plenty of perfectly
good light.on the other side of the class-
room door - let's go out there and study'!
One day in junior high, a buddy nudged
me and said "pssst... look." As he flipped
the pages through a magazine.that I was
certain he had stolen from his dad, I gave
him the tlir..l,: up A disgusted science
teacher stomped to the back of the room
and ,i'if.:: ei - that .magazine, you


know - Field & Stream.
Now, I'm not old, but I was raised in an
era when parents would still actually
(gasp) discipline their children, so I did not
skip school, not physically, anyway. But it
is no coincidence that I write a column ti-
tled 'Playing Hooky'..People tend to get to
busy. We all need to' take a break and play
hooky from all of our pressures once in a
while. This can take any form you want:
sports, arts & crafts, photography, stamp
collecting - I enjoy just about any activity
that gets me out the door and on the water,
in the woods, at a ballpark, etc.
Apparently, I'm not alone. There is
enough demand for outdoor recreation
-that it has become a multi-billion dollar


and all of the vacationers go, those guides
stay very busy," Captain Rich said.
Perhaps the foremost outfitter for out-
doors activities of all types in our area is
Black Creek Outfitters. If you are not new
to the neighborhood you may remember
when they were located on Blanding Boule-
vard. In recent years they have moved to
10051 Silver Lake Drive in Jacksonville.
Vice President and General Manager, Joe
Butler III shared his views on self-employ-
ment in outdoors retail, a landscape that
has seen much change in the past decade.
"The biggest challenge is the continu-
ous change in the retail environment," he
said. "A lot of businesses that started
small got g,'i,'li'-.l-ip by big businesses


Many folks would love to their living amidst our beautiful outdoor environment.


industry. Where there is industry, there
are jobs. The camping industry alone gen-
erates 2.3 million careers. Fishing and
snow sports both produce well in. excess
of 500,000. Hiking.puts 716,000 folks to
work, bicycling employs 1.1 million.
The impact of all the money spent on
our outdoor pursuits is a great..stimulus
for our economy. Sport fishing is about a
60-billion-dollar-a-year machine.
Local charter boat captains and
guides don't do as well as their counter-
part's downstate, but they aren't starving
either. "If you can book two or three trips
per week and keep some repeat customers
coming back every year, you can do al-
right," shares Captain Rich Grey, who
works out of.Thrifty Outdoors and often
works in the store when he isn't booked.
"Down south where the water is real clear

that have share-holders. Some of them
seem to be less concerned about the out-
doors and more concerned with the
almighty dollar."
Then again, the Butler family wouldn't
be in the business if it weren't rewarding.
"I'm 38 years-old," said Joe, "but because of
all the young people I deal with, I stay young.
I really enjoy that young state of mind."
* Joe invites all of you to stop by and check
out the new 3,000-foot addition that will be
complete in mid-to-late November. "We are
expanding the kayak area," he said. "It will
be like a grand opening all over again." Call
(904) 645-7003 for more information.
My teacher meant well when she con-
fiscated a copy of Field and Stream mag-
azine from me, but she had no idea how
important the subject matter on my mind
was. While I was focused on big business,
job creation, and economics, well, sort of,
she went on about stuff that I have long-
since forgotten and never missed. Let's
keep our priorities straight, shall we.
On September 22nd Thrifty Outdoors is
holding a seminar'on bottom fishing. Fea-
tured speakers will be Captain Dennis Young
and Denny Young of Sea Dancer Charters.
Time - 7 p.m. Call 786-9080 to reserve your

SeDtember - 2006












Stakeholders Working to Strengthen


Florida's Competitive Edge

By: Danita Andrews, Director of Economic Development


Communities
and regions from
across the entire
state of Florida
were represented
at the Enterprise
Florida, Inc. (EFI)
Stake holders
Council and Board


of Directors meet-' UIuanilIpurew
ings in August. Practitioners dis-
cussed strategies and action plans
for advancing Florida's global ini-
tiatives from both rural and urban
perspectives. The Econoimic Devel-
opment staff participated in nu-
merous working group sessions
relating to workforce, marketing,
global commerce, defense and
space,- technology, entrepreneur-
ship and capital, as well as legisla-
tive issues.
The workforce working group led
by Pete Tesch, Ocala-Marion Coun-
ty Economic Development, dis-
cussed recruitment and retention
and the critical situation the state is
facing with labor force shortages.
The group discussed initiatives for
retaining and retraining industry
specific employees through pro-
grams and policy; finding job op-
portunities to recapture Florida's


graduates; encouraging develop-
ment of pilot projects to address in-
dividual county needs and a "grow
your own" approach in working with
the Department of Education on
career institutes, the choice pro-
gram and internships to "fill" the
pipeline of needed workers for- our
existing and potential new indus-
tries.
The marketing working group led
by Kathy Baylis, Economic Devel-
opment Corporation of Sarasota
County, reviewed the 2006 Image
Study about how Florida is per-
ceived by business executives with-
in targeted sectors throughout the
U.S., the United Kingdom, Germany
and Canada. Since the 2002 study,
Florida rankings were up overall as
a positive place to do business and
as a high tech state. Even though
perceptions are growing more fa-
vorable, branding Florida to com-
plete is a long term multi-year
strategy that will include maintain-
ing momentum with the progress
that has been made in marketing
the state as the "Innovation Hub of
the America's." The ability to ad-
dress key impression drivers cross
into other strategic initiatives in-
cluding strengthening of the state's


education system, providing a high-
ly skilled workforce and intensifying
Florida's presence with leading
edge high tech businesses.
EFI's International Trade and
Business Development Division will
be administering grants for primary
and regional organizations to devel-
op sustainable programs to expand
foreign direct investment or export
trade and increase international
trade development overall. These'
initiatives are important compo-
nents of the statewide "Roadmap
for Florida's Future," strategic plan
for economic development.
In addition, Sharon Binnun with
the Office of Insurance Regulation
(OIR) provided information related
to the challenges within the Flori-
da's property insurance. market-
place. Availability and cost of
property insurance is a major con-
cern since the 2004-2005 hurricanes
resulted in $36 billion dollars in
property losses spread over 2.8 mil-
lion claims. Florida residential
property owners that cannot find'
coverage can look to Citizens Prop-
erty Insurance Corporation as .a
"last resort." Moreover, only com-
mercial policy holders whose busi-
ness property is located in the


"wind pool" can qualify for this cov-
erage. Ms. Binnon reported that
the OIR has made considerable ef-
forts to stabilize the market. They
have been working with Governor
Bush and the Legislature on mak-
ing property insurance more avail-
able to businesses and consumers
throughout Florida. The effort re-
sulted in Senate Bill 1980 to provide
incentives for insurers to partici-
pate and additional stabilization of
the market is anticipated through
longer term strategies to improve
building codes and to mitigate the
risks and losses associated with
high winds.
EFI is the public-private partner-
ship responsible for leading Flori-
da's statewide economic
development efforts. Regional and
local economic development organ-
izations partner with EFI to contin-
ually improve Florida's business
climate and ensure its global com-
petitiveness. These Stakeholders
meetings occur three-times a year
and provide an excellent opportuni-
ty to look over the horizon for
what's happening around the state,
to benchmark the progress of our
own initiatives and learn about cur-
rent statewide programs.

"Focus on the Future" has been
the Chamber theme over the past
two years. I feel confident as I
leave my post as Chairman that

ing the economic climate and qual-
ity of life in Clay County. I give my

SciFi Lands in Clay County!
Mr. David Dwiggins, a film pro-
ducer for such movies as Species III
and Flightplan, came to Camp


Blanding in August to check out
some possible sites for an upcoming
project. It will be a film for TV for
the SciFi Channel. It could be shot
as early as November. It's about
aliens landing.on a distant planet
where our heroes are stationed.
During the site visit, we were dis-
cussing economic impact when a
cast and crew come in to film. Mr.
Dwiggins said it like this: Say a film
group stays at a hotel and it's unex-
pected revenue for that property.
Perhaps then the hotel manage-
ment decides to take that income
and repaint. Then a painter is
hired. Perhaps the painter then
buys a new truck that he needed.
The truck dealership pays some-
thing else forward. On average, a
dollar is spent about fotir times in a
community. Mr. Dwiggins travels all
over the world and said there's a
good chance he may be coming
back to the Jacksonville area and-
also to Camp Blanding. We are very
excited! We will know by next

Your Dollars Send


Kids to College


When Chamber members receive
their yearly membership invoice,
they probably notice the voluntary
scholarship donation of $10.95. This.
money goes toward the Chamber's
Scholarship Program. Each year,
the organization awards five schol-
arships - one $1,000 scholarship and


four $500 scholarships.
The Chamber recently received a
thank you letter from one of this
year's scholarship recipients. We
thought it was important that we
share this note with you. Your small
donation every year is allowing Clay
County students to go to college.


2-Aug-i1,6




Dear CCCC,
My name is Alexander Whipple, -and I was awarded the CCCC Scholarship for the-
amount of $500. I would like to take the time to thank you (CCCC) for this wonderful
opportunity to continual my education.
I was adopted about two years ago, and going to college was something that I always
wanted to do. However, at the time I did not know how I was going to pay for it without getting i
into dept. by taking out student loans. So college turned into a dream, that I did not think was
going to come true. But, with your help that dream has now come true. This is why this
scholarship is so important to me. So I would like to thank you once again for this opportunity

Sincerely, .............



Alex Whipple
