By Lynn Gerlach
Correspondent
MIDDLEBURG -- If the 8-foot white rabbit
in front of Bonnie's Nursery catches your
eye as you drive down Blanding Boulevard,
Bonnie and Lou Martens are satisfied.
That's exactly why they put it there.
"I love rabbits," Bonnie says, "but we
really just bought it from a dealer who was
going out of business. He had used it to draw
attention, and that's our purpose too."
The unnamed ornament, which has
been in the Martens "family" for about
five years, is fashioned from resin and
fiberglass.

A little of this


and a little of that


This is another of those times when I
have a lot of little topics running around
inside my skull but none of them seem
destined to grow up into big topics. There-
fore, let me introduce you to my "brain
children."
The weather is always a hot topic
- pun intended but haven't these past
.few days been letter perfect? If it weren't
for all the Christmas displays all over the
place, it would be hard to believe that it
is the middle of December. "White Christ-
mas" may have been written in Florida,
but I don't expect to see one this year.
The last white Christmas I did see,
however, was in Florida over in Dunedin.
That year it snuck up on us, it was cold
as all get out when we came home from
midnight Mass and we woke up the next
morning to a white world. It wasn't snow,
though; it was frost and ice.
Speaking of Dunedin, there is another
town by that name in New Zealand and
that, of course, is south of the equator.
They can expect weather like we're having
now for every Christmas.
When I was in the Navy, I was sta-
tioned for a couple of years in Trinidad
just a short distance north of the equator.
I was fascinated by the Christmas trees in
people's homes complete with fake snow
and ice this from people who had never
seen either except in a refrigerator.


From Where I Sit

OPINION COLUMN
Bob Henderson ,
BHENDERSON@JCPGROUP.COM


Ah yes, the Christmas season is upon
us complete with all the frustrations in-
herent to the season; they come in all
shapes and sizes.
In my house, the Christmas season
begins with Advent four Sundays before
the holiday. It's on that day that the Ad-
vent wreath takes its place of honor in
the middle of the dining room table. The
wreath includes five candles, three pur-
ple, one pink and one white. The wreath
itself can be anything, usually evergreen.
Last year, however, I spotted a wreath
made entirely from silver bells; it's differ-
ent and I like it.
Dec. 2, the first Sunday in Advent,
rolled around and I went to pull the wreath
out of the closet. I couldn't find it. I spent
a week looking for the thing I was al-
most to the point of shaking the house to
see if I could hear the bells ring. Eventu-


ally I found it and placed it in the middle
of the table. Now to surround it with the
candles. What candles? The leftover can-
dles from last year were burned down too
far to be of any use; I can't imagine why
I kept them. The religious articles shop
at St. Luke's is closed for renovation. The
regular stores don't seem to have what I
need. The forlorn little wreath sits there
unadorned and will remain so until I can
get to the candle shop in the mall.
Frustration number two:
When Cody was home a couple of
weeks ago, he told me what he wants for
Christmas. It is not terribly expensive,
considering who it's for. It should be eas-
ily obtainable and easily shipped to Mis-
sissippi. Or so I thought.
Sunday after church I went to get it
and also the gift his girlfriend wants. Not.
I think I traipsed through half the stores

"We want to make sure no one comes
in our back door and takes our resourc-
es,"'she said.
State Rep. Aaron Bean echoed her
stand.
"We do have a fight on our hands," he
said.

said that water supply should be under

body's water, she said. She cited meetings
between Marion and Duval County and
ongoing talks with Georgia, which is hav-
ing its own problems. "The question is,"
she said, is this going to be a county-by-
county, regional or state effort?"
The first local official to address the
delegation was Deputy School Superin-
tendent Denise Adams. Citing the bleak
financial future, Adams asked that'class
size remain funded. She also asked that
the Legislature lighten up on the man-
dates for in-service training for teachers.

county for employment opportunities. He
also said he was happy that Duval County
also is taking an interest in the river.
Noting that the proposed Outer Beltway
would be a public and private effort, Car-
roll stressed that political support is vital.
"If they sense a failure in support,"
she said, "it wall fall apart."
In response to a question from Car-
roll, Bradley said that St. Johns County is
still on board. He also said that the aim is
to begin bidding in 2008.
Bradley invited the delegation to re-
turn in January or February for a summit
meeting.
Carroll said it is important to keep
U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns in the loop.
Green Cove Springs City Manager
Don Bowles and Mayor John Buchanan
brought several issues before the delega-
tion. Among them were continued support
for the August Savage Community Cen-
ter, the need for water treatment plant
improvements and well drilling, and the

municipal service taxing units recently
adopted by the county that impacted the
municipalities' budgeting efforts.
"You guys have some of the best staff
I've ever seen," Keystone Heights Mayor
Marylou Hildreth said. She, too, cited
water problems. Keystone is really feel-
ing the financial pinch, she noted. Their
community center won't withstand even
a moderate storm, she said. Pointing out
Keystone's distance from the county gov-
ernment in Green Cove Springs, Hildreth
said that in the event of a catastrophe, the
city would be on its own.
The mayor said that, like a lot of small
cities that are in economic meltdown,
Keystone is in real trouble. She said the
problem will worsen if the voters adopt
Amendment One that will further reduce
ad valorem.
Carroll responded that elected of-
ficials need to educate the citizens. "In-
form, educate, empower," she said.
Orange Park Town Manager John
Bowles and Mayor Travis Cummings said
their problem is transportation, trans-
portation and transportation. They asked
for variable timing on the traffic lights on
U.S. 17 and pledged their support for the
Beltway.
More speakers came forward to dis-
cuss traffic, economic development, sup-
port for various groups and affordable
housing.
Before closing, the delegation elected
Lynn chairman for the coming year and
Rep. Steve Wise.as vice-chairman.

in Clay County. A lot of things were close;
none were on the mark. I wore my legs
to stumps and destroyed my equanimity. I
will find it, though, and I will get it to him
by Christmas if I have to drive it to Mis-
sissippi myself.
Frustration number three:
It's just about time to put up the
Christmas tree. My tree is a four-footer
that unfolds and sits on a table. It even
has its lights already on it. Sounds simple
enough, doesn't it?
Well, I have a huge peace lily that I
take off its table in front of a window in
the living room and put on a small chest
in front of a window in my bedroom. It's in
my bedroom now and has been for. weeks:
I've reached that stage of life where
I am somewhat unsteady on my feet;
that's why I frequently carry a walking
stick. Several weeks ago I was carrying
a snack on a tray and somehow managed
to trip over a large, bright red footstool. I
fell into middle of the peace lily. Believe
it or not, the plant survived; the table
didn't. So now I have to get a new one and
- here's that age thing again every time
I'm in the store, I forget to look for one. It
may be after New Year's before I'm ready
for Christmas. But, if I get it all together
and get it set up, at least I'll be ready for
Christmas 2008.
See ya.

County's investments safe, Behring says


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer
GREEN COVE SPRINGS At the end of
November the State Board of Administra-
tion (SBA), manager of the Local Govern-
ment investment Pool, froze asset funds
in response to a "run" on the institution.
Because of anxiety over some of the SBA
investments some small governments
withdrew large amounts of funds from
the pool. Clay County Commission (BCC)
Chairman George Bush asked county ad-
ministration to look into the situation with
an eye to determining the safety of Clay's
invested funds. Tuesday, Dec. 11, Finance
Director Donald Moore reported.
"The county has not lost money in
SBA," Moore said.
Moore said that subsequent to freez-
ing assets, SBA had retained a global in-
vestment management firm, BlackRock, to
analyze the pool and make recommenda-
tions. BlackRock split the pool into two
funds, A and B.
The A fund contains about 86 percent
of the invested assets. These are invest-
ments that BlackRock considers "top
tier."
The B fund is a different matter; these
assets, about 14 percent of the pool, are
in default or distress. No withdrawals
are being permitted from this fund. Clay
County has approximately $10.7 million
in B.
Moore said that even though the secu-
rities in B are experiencing problems, it is
not an indication that they will not eventu-
ally pay out. In addition, he says, "...they
still have solid underlying assets."
Bush, who initiated the investigation,
said that, on the basis of the report, "If it
were my money, I'd be reluctant to pull it
out." He explained that the penalties for

Commission meeting Tuesday, Dec. 11. Winners, backed by commissioners, were Molly Understander,

Gracy, second and third place poster; and Kyle Walsh, first place poster.


early withdrawal would be too much and
that the risk appears to be very little.
County Manager Fritz Behring told the
board that the county has approximately
$25 million on hand and will not have any
problem paying bills.
Bush concluded, "I've been watching
it, sometimes on an hourly basis."
The commission agreed that funds
should not be withdrawn at this time.
Earlier, as the meeting started, Clerk
of the Circuit Court James Jett announced
that his office was returning $1,452,396
in unspent funds to the county. In addi-
tion, his office is returning $455,795 to
the state.
Jett said that increased efficiency in
the clerk's office had made the returns
possible. He said that despite increased
case loads and additional judicial officers,
the office isoperating with the same staff
level as nine years ago.
Following Jett, Scott Whalen of St.
Vincent's Medical Center in Jacksonville


gave the commission a preview of its
plans for Clay County.
The hospital will be located at the in-
tersection of Branan Field Road and Blan-
ding Boulevard in Middleburg.
Whalen said 10 percent of their pa-
tients live in Clay County and that 45
percent of Clay residents seek medical fa-
cilities outside the county. It will enclose
241,640 square feet and will be built at a
projected cost of $115 million.
The hospital will open with 98 beds
and is expandable to 200. All are private


rooms. It will have a 12-bed maternity
unit, eight-bed ICU, surgical unit, endos-
copy suite, bronchoscopy suite, cardiac
catherization lab and the entire facility
will be wired for telemetry.
Whalen said he recognized that there
probably would be challenges to the Ad-
ministrative Law Judge's recommenda-
tion announced earlier this month and, if
it went against them, St. Vincent's would
abandon its plans for a hospital but would
continue to maintain a medical presence
in Clay County.
The Agency for Health Care Admin-
istration originally selected Orange Park
Medical Center to build a second Clay
County hospital. AHCA will now review
the recommendation and can either up-
hold its initial decision or change. Either
way a legal challenge is expected after
AHCA issues its decision. No date is set.
In other business, the BCC:
Approved exercising option to pur-
chase property near the Fairgrounds for
a new public safety center;
Approved an ordinance adopting
wind speed line required. by the state for
building;
Conducted a -public hearing on add-
ing a Charter amendment question to the
ballot. The amendment would require
voter approval before casino gambling
could be expanded in the county.

Have you ever eaten fruitcake?


Scott Classon, 45,

"Yes. Sometimes I like ihem and
sometimes I don't."


Jackie Dixon, 54,

but I acquired a taste for it."


Bobble Griffin, 62,

Robert Winchester, 42,

nuts in it. I don't like the green
candy stuff."


Stage fright is a really scary thing


Standing in the wings of the Orange
Park Community Theater, hands sweaty
and pulse elevated as I waited to die a
horrible death onstage, my mind began
to focus on one person.
Director Barbara Wells.
How could I ever thank, her for this
"opportunity" to appear before a live
audience for the first time since 1977?
Several medieval pain devices came to
mind.
What choice words would I possibly
say to her after I flubbed my lines, draw-
ing giggles of embarrassment from the
audience?
Thoughts of "Is my fly closed?" and
"Where's the exit?" crossed my mind,
too, while remembering who it was that
got me into this mess.
It was Barbara, who weeks earlier
had called me, and with the most flat-
tering comments, talked me into a small
part in the two-day Readers Theater
play called "A Christmas Carol.com."
It was a speaking part, she said, but it
was not one of the main characters and
could be easily done by even the green-
est novice.
Now only moments from going on stage
and beginning to feel more that a little
green myself, I also thought of my wife,
a frequent backstage manager at the the-
ater, who was Wells's partner in crime.
There's my cue...
"Where am I?
"What's my name?"
For an introvert who's spent a ca-
reer being an observer of events and
people but rarely a participant, walking

into the light was a scary proposition.
Yet Wells convinced me she knows what
it takes to be on stage and that I would
do fine.
She is the veteran of many plays
at the cozy little theater that sits along
Moody Avenue that was quickly becom-
ing my house of horror. The small white,
church-like building from the outside
looks so welcoming and the perfect set-
ting for Clay County residents to spend
a few hours as their fellow citizens per-
form drama, comedy and musicals.
Like all good directors, Barbara was
in control from our first rehearsal and
put everyone at ease. It's her job to take
an eclectic group of human beings in
our case, the cast ranged from a savvy
little second-grader who is cute as a
button to a bald-headed ex-Marine who
does one of the scariest Scrooge laughs
you will ever hear in theater or cinema
- and get them to perform.
Readers Theater allows the actors to
hold the scripts while saying the lines
and the production time of a few weeks
is much shorter than a regular play, but


we did have scene and minor costume
changes, props to move and lighting
marks to hit.
It all went so well the first day...
until we got to the part of the script
where my character is supposed to kiss
the leading lady played by Shana De-
busk. Oh God! Didn't anyone tell this
woman I hadn't been on stage since
my high school senior play "Rowan and
Martin's Laugh-In" 30 years ago?
Thanks to Barbara we got through
that situation with laughter and forged
ahead. Looking back I realize it was
Wells's comments at those moments
that kept us unified and on-task. She
barked when she needed to, especially to
the teens that needed a reminder of the
rules, and nudged the adults toward what
she felt the script required them to do,
And it was her words earlier open-
ing night during a cast circle that I ulti-
mately remembered just before walking
into the stage lights.
"Go out there and have fun and be
relaxed," she said.
Fortunately, I didn't wet myself on
stage and the lines came out somewhat
understandable. With each scene it got
a little easier and the second night was
even better.
To my fellow cast members par-
ticularly Shana, whose smile helped me
get through those scary stage moments,
and Fred and Steve for their encourag-
ing words I say "Thank You."
And to Barbara Wells I say OK, I
enjoyed it and I await my next triumph!
Just have your people call my people.

Bonnie's


has every lawn ornament imaginable


By Lynn Gerlach
Correspondent
MIDDLEBURG When is retirement prob-
ably not in the cards?
Ask Lou Martens, co-owner of Bon-
nie's Nursery in Middleburg. He should
know. The 79-year-old, already twice re-
tired, says, "If I retire I'll get old, and I
don't want that to happen." Surrounded
by thousands of lawn ornaments, foun-
tains and outdoor statuary of all kinds,
Lou sits with his wife Bonnie, many years
his junior but also contemplating retire-
ment, and reflects on his third career.
For Bonnie, retired from the U.S.
Navy just like her husband, the nursery
has been only a second career.
"It's really the customers who keep us
going," Bonnie explains. "We have a data-
base of over 2,000, and those people are
what make our business fun."
The two started this venture 14 years
ago selling plants in the St. Augustine flea
market. When the commute from Middle-
burg became a burden, they opened Bon-
nie's Nursery in its present location on SR
21, just south of CR 218, on land owned
by Lou's daughter. They're easy to spot
now. The 8-foot white rabbit out front sort
of gives them away.
The nursery offers 10,000 azalea
plants, still for 99 cents, as always, in-
cluding dwarf, miniature and Formosa
types. Thousands of Society Garlic plants
and lilies also await the home gardener.
But it's not the plants that get your
attention. It's the sparkling blown glass
gazing balls, the carefully painted military
statues, the fountains and alligators and

pelicans.
Bonnie's Nursery .is an extensive
collection of every type of lawn orna-
mentation imaginable, displayed along a
meandering trail dotted here and there
with storage sheds and indoor shopping
areas.
The couple offers classic pieces, tra-
ditional ornaments, and the whimsical,
ranging in price from $1 to $2,400.
"They really look better once they're
placed in someone's yard," Bonnie ex-
plains. "Sometimes we get to see our
products in place. That's a real thrill."
The Martenses are proud that all their
products are made in the USA, mostly by
Florida craftsmen.
"We help each other make a living,"
says Bonnie, "and that makes us feel
good about what we're doing." Where the
statuary and lawn ornaments end up is
another story though. The couple delivers
to Gainesville, Palm Coast, Kissimmee

And it does get attention, though.
The Martenses' daughter would like to
put it out in her Middleburg pasture, but
Mom and Dad are not yet ready to part
with the bunny.
And a rabbit farmer from Brookfield
has his eye on the hare, too. He thinks it
would be a great attention getter for his
business.
"I've priced it high enough that people


and beyond.
One time they took two gargoyles
along on a family cross-country trip and
delivered them in Arkansas. And they.
have a couple of customers who come to
northeast Florida each year from. Illinois
and shop the nursery. One year they even
stayed in the Martens' home!
A customer who purchased a four-tier
fountain told the couple he was visiting
from Africa's Ivory Coast and would take
his prize back home with him. They were
astounded when, a year later, he returned
with photos of their made-in-Florida foun-
tain beautifully situated on his property
in Africa!
"No two days are ever alike," Bonnie
says. "We're in an excellent location here
on a state road." Although the increased
traffic on Blanding Boulevard is sure to
impact their business positively, the
Martenses admit that it's the returning
customers who make it all worthwhile.


will have to think real hard if they want
to buy it," Lou Martens says. "I'm asking
$1,200."
Sadly, the oversize flop-ears is still
without a name. With a little encourage-
ment, Bonnie has decided to run a rabbit-
naming contest in spring before the hare
goes out to perform his annual Easter egg
hunt duties.
"We'll offer a nice prize for the best
name," Bonnie said.
Meanwhile, interested persons may drive
past 2779 Blanding Boulevard, just south of
Middleburg, and start conjuring some win-
ning names for one very large rabbit.

They've seen military families move away
on orders and, a few years later, return
to Clay County and come back for plants
or ornaments. Some customers fall in
love with an oversize giraffe or a whimsi-
cal bench but just can't afford to pay the
price. "We put things on lay-away," Lou
explains.
"We don't mind keeping things for a
while as long as folks make monthly pay-
ments."
Lou tells the story of a 14-year-old boy
who bought a $200 fountain some years
ago. He made monthly payments faithfully.
"When he had just two payments to go,"
Lou says, "I told him to take the fountain.
I'd take care of the balance for him."
The couple's best memories are about
the community events they participated
in, particularly the Ham Jam when it first
started in Middleburg. One year their
display won third place in the Southern
Women's Show at the Prime Osborne Con-
vention Center.
It's their connection to the community
that keeps them going. When Lou's daugh-
ter died of cancer in 2005, the outpour-
ing of sympathy from their customers and
area business owners was overwhelming,
they say.
So are they still in it for the long
haul?
"We're in the coin-flipping stage," Lou
said. "I know it's time to get out, but work-
ing outdoors like this keeps us healthy."
Bonnie would like more time for family,
and Lou would like to work in his own yard
for a change. "I'd like to retire sometime
and just be a homemaker," Bonnie said.
"My husband doesn't get homemade pie
often enough." Lou seconded the motion.
Readers can visit Bonnie and Lou and
their manager, Richard, at Bonnie's Nurs-
ery, 2779 Blanding Blvd., Middleburg, or

Padrinos Pizzeria is home cooking from NYC


By Jim Kelly
Staff Writer
ORANGE PARK If, from your youth, you
fondly recall a renowned neighborhood
eatery serving "from scratch" recipes
brought from the old country, then you
already know a lot about Padrinos.
"Padrino's" is Italian for "Godfather,"
said Angela LaRosa, family daughter and
owner. Her mom and dad are also active
in this new venture, and since Salvatore.
gets along with kids so well, they decided
he is like their godfather; they transferred
the name to the restaurant.
If you recall visiting a storefront eat-
ery where you smell the sweet tomato
sauce melding with spicy Italian sau-
sage and garlic butter smothering crusty
homemade bread before you get out of
the car, then you have experienced Pa-
drino's.
The LaRosa Family moved to Jackson-
ville from the Miami area just a couple
of years ago. Prior to their more than 20


years in the restaurant business down
south, the ethnic cuisine chefs honed their
skills in Queens, New York City:
Salvatore and Patricia La Rosa
brought their daughter Angela up in the
business and today she inherits from them
a commitment to serve fine Italian Pizza
and pasta in the tradition of old country
charm, promoting the sense that only the
best graces a guests dinner plate.
Don't go in there in a hurry. McDon-
alds sits just down the road for wolfing
down a quick dinner.
Go when you are ready to be pam-
pered with attention and offered pizza
variety featuring large lightly glistening
toppings of fresh oregano, tomato sauce
and fresh mushrooms and vegetables cov-
ering delectable chunks of Italian sausage
and pepperoni; all baked to Sicilian-crust
perfection; offering the palate a taste and
texture sensation guaranteed to bring you
back again. And when you can't make it
into the restaurant, they promise to deliv-
er a piping hot pizza to your front door.


But the pie for which to die is only
the beginning. A rather extensive menu
of delicacies from crispy and lightly fried
calamari or baked scallops will set your
tummy for more. We recommend the Min-
estrone because the soup is chock full of
vegetables seasoned with just the right
amount of spice to keep the bowl flavor-
fully interesting.
I had the veal Parmigiana; it was very
nice, smothered in homemade sweet to-
mato sauce, accompanied by a mound of
angel-hair pasta alongside. Be prepared
to take home tomorrow's lunch as this
meal offers enough food for two meals, es-
pecially if you enjoy the bread as I did. An
extensive children's menu offers choices
for kids at reasonable prices.
Angela says spaghetti and meatballs
is one of her favorites and very popular
with frequent visitors. Chicken Milanese
and the Alfredos are very sought-after by
patrons.
Other popular dishes, all from
scratch include mussels or shrimp fra
diavolo, veal and chicken marsala and so

much more so that those of less than
firm conviction will change their mind
many times.
Let us not forget dessert. But frankly,
I don't know where you will put it. Angela
features the famous La Rosa Cannoli, New
York Cheese cake and a creamy coconut
cake that brings Orange Park residents
David and Michele Benjamin, two ardent
promoters of the restaurant.
The restaurant features most favor-
ite wines, bottled beers and many other
drinks including hot tea and sturdy Italian
coffee.
For the money, Oakleaf Town Center
now boasts one of the finest Italian res-
taurants south of Long Island.
Angela, Salvatore and Patricia LaRosa
invite you to enjoy hearty meals in a rus-
tic ambience every evening; eat inside or
on the sidewalk.
The restaurant opens daily with a spe-
cial lunch menu Mon. through Sat. until 2
p.m. (dine in only). Early bird specials are
held Monday-Saturday, 3-6 p.m. Call Pa-
drinos at (904) 317-8282 for details.

OPHS senior club raises funds for Children's Miracle Network


By Randy Lefko
Correspondent

ORANGE PARK-Two Clay County families
shared their ordeals concerning a cancer
diagnosis to a family member, but then
energized a Sunday, Dec. 9, meeting of
Orange Park High School students to help
the next family that may become part of
the Children's Miracle Network (CMN).

mer Orange Park High baseball star Ste-
ven Dandridge and how young and strong
he was, but cancer took him," said Orange
Park High instructor Christy Jump, coor-
dinator of the Orange Park High Senior
Women's Clfib fund-raiser.
"Cancer is an ugly, painful ordeal that
can happen at any time to anyone no mat-
ter what they do or who they are. That's
why we are here," Jump said.
Jump was joined by 50 high school

students who are members of the Orange
Park High Senior Women's Club. The
group was organized this year by instruc-
tors Cindy Ankrom and Laura Mayberry
as well as CMN Jacksonville office coor-
dinator LaShanette Campbell.
The two families who shared the gut-
wrenching ordeal of dealing with the can-
cer were the Rothwells, with Michael,
15 and a Keystone Heights Senior High
student, joined by his parents, Roger
and Diana with sister Rachel; and Taylor
Smith, an Orange Park sophomore, with
his mother, Laurie Woolwine.
Rachel Rothwell, who as a 16-year-old
Keystone Heights student, started a hand-
made jewelry businesses that still thrives,
was directing a jewelry-making session
with the club members with money raised
going to the CMN.
"When Michael went through his
cancer, dad was very involved with the
Children's Miracle Network back then and
to this day and we wanted to give back
something for all they did," said Rothwell.
Roger Rothwell, co-owner of Ace Hard-
ware stores in Clay County, has been a
fund raiser for CMN since son Michael
was diagnosed at age two.
"The reason I stick to the Children's
Miracle Network is 100 percent of the
money raises goes right back to the hos-
pitals," he said. "My daughter Rachel has
been donating 10 percent of all of her jew-
elry sales to the Network and tonight she
will be donating all proceeds."
Jump said the Women's Club was to
pay $5 to make two bracelets with one
being donated back to the Network which


includes Wolfson's Children Hospital,
Shands Hospital at Jacksonville and the
Ronald McDonald House. The second
bracelet could be kept or given as a gift
with a card that told the.recipient a simi-
lar bracelet has been donated to the Net-
work.
Taylor Smith was a healthy, fit karate stu-
dent in 2005 and about to test for his Black
Belt when he found a bump on his neck.
"The doctors told me it was Cat
Scratch Fever and he would be in and out
in 30 minutes," said Laurie Woolwine,
Smith's mother. "Almost two hours later,
they came out, took me to a small room
and told me it was cancer and it was very
close to his brain stem."
Woolwine said it was excruciating for
her to have to tell her 13 year old son
that, first, he had cancer, and, second, he
couldn't test for his black belt.
"Hlie simply said, I can do this," she
said.
Last Friday, Smith completed his
Black Belt test successfully and has been
in remission. He still suffers from some
dexterity and balance issues, but said his
martial arts training is helping him get
stronger.
'He has a three-year wait to be sure it
is completely gone," said Woolwine.
Campbell spoke to the group and re-
minded them that the Network's goal is to
make the entire cancer treatment process
as comfortable as possible.
"Our focus is making the kids com-
fortable while at the hospital," she said.
"Almost 60,000 kids are part of the Net-
work.".

Teen Court offers young offenders second chance


By Randy Lefko
Correspondent
GREEN COVE SPRINGS The grand-
father was visibly emotional and tears
nearly welled in his eyes as he seemed
desperate to find a solution to alter the
course of life that his granddaughter was
heading.
She is blonde, a pretty girl, a junior in
one of Clay County's many high schools,
grades are As and Bs. Yet, she is in real
trouble.
"Sometimes I think we spoil them too
much and they don't think anything can
happen to them," said the grandfather.
"She got in with some bad friends and got
caught shoplifting a buck or two item and
now this."
"This" is Teen Court of Clay County.
Available since 1996, Teen Court at-
tempts to divert teenagers who may have
broken the law from forever suffering with
a criminal record.
At the direction of Debbie Mueller, a
smiling, witty and hard-nosed adminis-
trator of the "real world" as she calls it,
the granddaughter will sit through a two-
hour intake conference with her grandfa-
ther just to decide if she'd like to willingly
admit to the guilt of the crime. If she does,
then she will be judged by her peers, be
under the scrutiny of monitoring by Muel-
ler and her staff and, more importantly,
change her life's direction before sanc-
tioned court appearances and possible
jail time occurs.
"This is the first glimpse of real world
for many of these kids," Mueller said.
"Ninety percent of these kids are just good
kids that made a mistake or got into a bad
situation they could not get out of then got
involved with law enforcement.
"Teen Court is a non-court way of
rectifying the situation without the court
costs, the arrest record and the possible
jail time. If they don't choose impor-
tant, they choose to comply, I'll ship
them right back into the court system and
that will stay with them for-most of their
lives."
At first glance, Teen Court may look
like a bunch of kids playing judge, jury
and lawyer, but that would be a mistake,
Mueller said. Between 250 and 300 ju-
veniles annual go through Teen Court,
which is held up to three times per month
depending on how many kids are enrolled
per week.
At the intake conference, Mueller de-
tails the procedures to the defendants and
their parents and explains the impact of a
criminal record if they don't comply.
Mueller is quick to include the parents
in the process.
"The parents did nothing wrong to be
in Teen Court and I am their best friend

here, but once their child is here, they too
are a part of it," she said. "Many parents
are embarrassed that it is their kid that
is here and that creates some tension be-


"Their cases to us are suggestions
that can be handled without the court sys-
tem," said Mueller. "The State Attorney
can drop the charges and let us handle it


"Once they get in that witness stand is when it re-
ally hits them. That fear of public speaking really
brings it home. Sometimes that public apology is
enough to turn a kid around, having to look a
parent in the eye in front of people. ""

tween us and them, but once they real-
ize that, with a little hard-core discipline,
their child may not end up with jail time
and a lifelong arrest record.
"The misconception that juvenile re-
cords are sealed is just that, a miscon-
ception. Government entities can look at
juvenile records and they may see three
incidences of minor drug use, some do-
mestic violence, some DUIs and that will
end any hopes of a career somewhere."
Teen Court applicants come to Muel-
ler via the State Attorney's Office, which
chooses teens it believes can be helped
with Teen Court.


without the court system. The courts can
be slow moving, costly and forever."
Mueller attempts to sway the parents
that their child's participation is a two-
man operation and she is on board to as-
sist the parents in any way she can.
Defendants are accompanied by par-
ents at the intake and can sit in on the
trial portions of the court, but they must
give her full cooperation and access in ap-
plying the punishment doled out by Teen
Court.
Teen attorneys, both defenders and
prosecutors, try the cases at the Old Clay
County Courthouse in Green Cove Springs
in front of a teen jury consisting of ex-de-
fendants who are assessed jury duty as
part of their punishment.
"Our teen juries are actually a lot
tougher than most because these kids are
have been through the process," she said.


"I tell my defendants, first, don't lie, and,
second, don't cop an attitude because they
may see teens in the jury and think they
can influence them. They won't."
A Florida Bar Association member
sits as judge of each session and keeps
the trial moving judiciously. One of those
judges is former U.S. Navy Judge Advo-
cate General Ben Barker, a veteran of
more than 40 years of court proceedings.
In a second courtroom, on the first
floor, Ashley Turner, a recent University
of North Florida graduate and a Clay High
graduate, takes on cases in her first year
of being a judge. Turner has volunteered
as an attorney in the Teen Court for near-
ly 10 years. Barker volunteered to be a
judge when he read a newspaper article
about Teen Court about 10 years ago.
In court last week, jurors were faced
with two defendants who were caught
with less than 20 grams of marijuana,
some open beer bottles and some ciga-
rettes in the vehicles they were in. Pros-
ecuting Attorney Caroline Capes grilled
the first defendant, just 17 years old, as
to why he decided to lose the trust of his
- family and why the illegal drugs were in
his vehicle. The visibly nervous defendant
admitted to smoking the cigarettes and
having the marijuana, but was vague as to
the purpose of having the marijuana in his
possession. The defendant was assessed
some community service, some jury duty,

and had to openly apologize to his mother
in court that night.
"Once they get in that witness stand
is when it really hits them," said Turner.
"That fear of public speaking really brings
it home. Sometimes that public apology is
enough to turn a kid around having to look
a parent in the eye in front of people."
Barker's extensive court experience
lends itself to occasional civic lessons
during the trial.
"I try to execute my duties as close to
a real court as possible, but occasionally
will interject some civil lessons along the
way," Barker said. "I'll explain the usual
court proceedings and terminology, but
also throw out some questions to the at-
torneys or discuss the Constitution to be
sure they are paying attention. They are
pretty sharp though."

has been part of the Teen Court since sev-

Hickson, who admitted to the adrenalin
rush of being in a courtroom, said he has
"no regrets" about his purpose.
"They knew what they did was wrong,
but they still did it," he stated. "I don't be-
lieve in excuses." Mueller softened Hick-
son's remarks by saying Hickson has told
her that being involved in Teen Court has
made him never want to go through it.
"He told me he would never want to be
in their shoes and if that's enough to keep
him out of trouble, that's good enough for
me," she said.

County Concert Band comes to Penney Farms


By Linda M. Mclnturff
Correspondent
PENNEY FARMS -- Barrows Hall was packed.
with the residents of Penney Retirement
Community (PRC) on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
The Clay County Community Concert
Band presented a Christmas Concert to its
enthusiastic audience.
In the words of the lead conductor, Jim
Layton, "We like to come to PRC because
you really appreciate us." With four resi-
dents of PRC members of the band, it isn't
hard to see why everyone likes to come out
for the concert.
To kick off the concert, the band opened
with a Christmas favorite, "Sleigh Ride," by
Leroy Anderson. No doubt several in the au-
dience were saying to themselves, "I know
that song, but what is its title?"
The band has three other associate con-
ductors, who, each in their turn, was passed
the baton so they could direct the band. 'Scott
Boyer conducted a Christmas medley, which
included such favorites as "Good King Wenc-
eslas," "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells," "Angels
We have Heard on High," "0 Come All Ye
Faithful," "I Heard the Bells on Christmas
Day," and "Deck the Halls."
Next to take the podium was Associate
Conductor Cheryl Knight, directing Franz
Van Suppe's "Light Calvary Overture." A
Christmas Medley followed, with arrange-
ments by John Moss, entitled "Christmas

on a Snowy Night," "Let it Snow," "Silent
Night," and "I'll be Home for Christmas."
Scott Foote, Conductor of the Southeast
Navy Band, directed "A Magical Christmas"
with such titles as "The Hollyfest," "A Little
Night Magic," "Christmas Moon," "March
of the Pinecones," "Sleigh Flight," and "Fi-
nale."
A modern re-arrangement of the "Hal-
lelujah Chorus," by Chip Davis and recorded
by the Mannheim Steamroller group set ev-
eryone's toes to tapping.
The Chorale Ensemble from PRC joined
the band in a rendition of "America the
Beautiful."


Roy McCance, a popular local musician
has played around the world. He is a fine
clarinetist, and performed a solo entitled.
"Clarinet on the Town." Roy has several]
music degrees and played in the US Ail
Force Band for many years. He has alsc
taught in the Jacksonville School System
for many years. Roy never missed a beal
as he made his clarinet sing, for which he
received a rousing applause.
Medley tunes that have come from
Broadway Musicals included, "It's Begin-
ning to Look a lot Like Christmas," "Toy-
land," "March of the Toys," "My Favorite
Things," "We Need a Little Christmas." and


"God Bless Us Everyone."
Gustav Hoist, who is well-known for his
work called "The Planets," also wrote "In the
Bleak Mid-Winter," which was masterfully
begun with first chair clarinetist, Virginia
Townsend's solo. The orchestra bells, played
by Helen Stephens, joined in, creating a sort
of duet. This was followed by the brass sec-
tion of the band; the trombone, baritone sax,
and tuba. The rest of the band joined in for
the final part of the number.
A Christmas Medley on Angels included
such favorites as "And I Heard Angels Sing,"
"Angels From the Realms of Glory,"-"Angels
We Have Heard on High," and "Hark, The
Herald Angels Sing."
For the finale, the band did a Christmas
"Sing-a-long," allowing the audience to join
in the singing of well-known carols like,
"Hark, The Herald Angels Sing," "0 Come
All Ye Faithful," "Deck the Halls." "Silent
, Night," "The First Noel," "Joy to the World,"
I and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."
At the close of the concert the band
members had an opportunity to visit with
I the many PRC folks who so much enjoy their
t concerts. The band gathered together for a
photo shoot before heading home.
The band works very hard to put on con-
certs around Jacksonville. All of the band

SARAH MARGARET FLSFSSFR
Mrs. Sarah Margaret Elsesser, former-
ly of Manchester, beloved wife of the Rev.
Alex H. Elsesser, passed away peacefully
on Tuesday, December 4, 2007, at home in
Penney Farms. She was 84. Born in Pitts-


burgh, Pa., on March 5, 1923, she was the
youngest of five children of the Rev. Arthur
A. Schade, former professor at Rochester
Divinity School and a nursing home pioneer,
and Emma (Schaefer) Schade, a descendant
of the German Baptist Dunkard community
in Pennsylvania's Blooming Grove Valley.
She enjoyed playing piano, met her future
husband when she was asked by her father
to accompany the divinity school student
as he played the musical saw on a visit to
the professor's home. She and Alex went on
to make touching music together during 64
years of marriage. Besides being a devoted
partner in the Rev. Elsesser's ministry in
Meriden; Dayton, Ohio; and at Community
Baptist Church in Manchester, she also be-
came .a librarian and media specialist for the
town of Manchester, working in the elemen-
tary schools. She wrote and published teach-
ing materials on library skills and, later,
family biographies and essays. The Sarah
M. Elsesser Media Center, at Robertson El-
ementary School in Manchester is named in
her honor. Her passion for music extended
to stints as a church organist, including at
Memorial Baptist Church in Hartford, and
various choirs, including the Manchester
Chorale. Arriving with Alex at P.R.C. in
1992, she quickly found her place by join-
ing the choir, the Women's Chorus, and of-
fering herself as a trained librarian when
it was only a one-room center for readers.
She helped expand it to more space until
the building of the Commons Building, when
she served on the committee enabling us to
enjoy this lovely facility. She also served as
a volunteer at Penmor Place; she even found
time to take up weaving. She was a tough
competitor, not only in the many games she
loved, especially mah-jongg and Scrabble,
but in life as well, confounding doctors with
her stoic resolve in overcoming one medical
adversity after another in her later years.
Many who came to know her were inspired
by her selflessness, her always-positive
outlook and her view of time as a precious
gift, to make music, to sew, to write, to read,
right to her dying day. Besides her husband,
she leaves four children, Ruth E. Elsesser
of Cottonwood, Ariz.; Lois J. Elsesser and

KH talking


to manager

candidate

By Aida Mallard
Correspondent
KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Provided
contract negotiations are successful,
Kenneth Venables will be the first-ever
city manager for the city of Keystone
Heights. But because the city council's
next regular meeting will be held on
Jan. 7, 2008, it is unlikely that he will
come on board as city manager before
the end of the year.
"I'm very exiled. I think it's a good
thing for Ke stone 1, I -Ilmi and a good
thing for me." Venables said in a tele-
phone interview. "This \\ill be my first
time in a permanent, or eilt manager
position. 1\'ve served in temporary po-
sitions five times."
"I'm extremely impressed with the
city council and with the people I've
met," he said. "It's a great city. great
staff, and I think it will be a terrific
relationship all around.
"I look forward to resolving con-
tract negotiations early and get the
ball rolling."
Mayor Mary Lou Hildreth said
she is looking forward to having a city
manager ready to take the administra-
tive reins for the city. leaving the city
council to set policy.
"I don't believe in micro-manag-
ing," said Hildreth. "You don't, want a
'yes man.' We want someone that will
bring his ideas to the table. Someone
that will give uis a different perspec-
tive.
"Our role is to set policy, and the
city manager's role is to administrate
and to advise the city council."
"I feel I will work well with the city
manager." said Hildreth, adding that
having him on board will free her to
pursue other city issues such as an-
nexation."
"Ken (Venables) is extremely ex-
cited about the job," Hildrelh said. "I
believe he will be reasonable in con-
tract negotiations."
Interim city manager Karen Nel-
son said Venables' wish list included
an annual salary of $60,000, a $400
monthly car allowance, and $150,000
life insurance policy.
Although some of the candidates
for ciy'manager requested six months
severance pay. Hildreth said the cit'
can only offer three months. '.itiji
Venables wanted a five year contract.
Hildreth said she thinks two years is
goo.d.
"It's oiur first time, and it will be a
transition period for the staff and the
council," said Hildreth.
Interim city manager Karen Nelson
is happy that contract negotiatiations
with Venables are under way.
"It's a new and positive change. I
think it will work out for the city." said
Nelson.
She. added, "I'm looking forward
to resuming my duties as city clerk.
While serving as interim city manager
and doing my duties as city clerk, it
was very time consuming.
"I'm looking forward to having a
little more time to spend with my fam-
ily."
John Schneiger, who was offered
the city manager position in mid-No-
vember but failed to respond in a time-
ly manner leading the city council to
believe he was not interested, called
this week to say he wanted to be ri-
consi(lered for the position.
He (Schneiger) sai(l thai in tie
event -r -,'ii miii.n failed wilh \Vie -
ables. he wanted to be r'econsidt'ieoId
for the position. said Ititldr l.h.
In oth'r cit's bliSie('ss:
L Learned the city was awarded
$2.500 from DuPont to be used for' I ho
community.

LAJH students spend -


time with an astronaut U


By Tonya Davie
Correspondent
LAKE ASBURY The delay of the shuttle
launch was sort of a lucky thing for stu-
dents at Lake Asbury Junior High (LAJH).
Because of the delay that meant that Mi-
chael Baker (Captain, USN, Ret.) had the
opportunity to visit with the students,
tell them about his trips into space and
answer their questions about NASA and
traveling in to space.
Baker, who was on four shuttle mis-
sions between 1991 to 1997, has logged
in 965 hours in space and is currently
the International Space Station Program
Manager for International and Crew Op-
erations, Johnson Space Center. More
importantly though, he is dad to LAJH
ESE teacher. Jane Baker. The fact that
his daughter teaches at this school is the
main reason that Baker was here to share
his experiences with these students.
Before anything else, Baker told the
students that "it is important for all of us
to get a good education." Baker received a
Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace
engineering from the University of Texas
in 1975 and went on to complete flight
training and earned his Wings of Gold at
Naval Air Station Chase Field, Beeville,
Texas.
He added that, "People your age will

be the ones going to Mars." A possible
future astronaut in the crowd yelled out,
"Yeah!"
Baker showed the students a pic-
ture of the earth he had taken while in
space. He shared with the children that
his favorite part of flying into space is
looking-at earth. "It takes 90 minutes (for
the shuttle) to go around the earth and
every 90 minutes I get to see the sun rise
and set."

Counselor


aids people


who grieve


By Jim Kelly
Staff Writer
ORANGE PARK Roxanne Clemens is Man-
ager of Bereavement and Community Grief
for Community Hospice of Northeast Flori-
da. She recently held a session for people
who are dealing with a death of a loved one
this year or at holiday times in years past.
Clemens believes
people should know
that it is okay to miss
a loved one any time
of the year; and she
knows it is especially
difficult during the
holiday season and
may be .even harder
when it is a child Roxanne Clemens
being mourned.
"Many parents and relatives cannot
foresee a time when their family will enjoy
a significant holiday again without the loved
one," said Clemens, "So I tell them it is OK
to break with tradition."
She says one family couldn't just stay
home and do what they had done when their
child was with them, so they didn't put up,
a Christmas tree and stockings. They went
to Las Vegas instead. Another family might
choose a cruise or visit relatives far away
from home.
Living without the loved one takes time,
according to Clemens, so often times what
people need is permission to not have a
great holiday.
Clemens has a checklist of sorts to help
families decide what holiday tasks they will
take on. From decorating the tree, to send-
ing holiday cards to preparing traditional
holiday foods; the list then allows prioritiz-
ing projects in varying degrees of affirma-
tive to negative. Example: Is decorating
the tree really necessary? Something to do
differently? An obligation? With or without
help? Or do you even like doing it?
The chart helps clarify decisions.
Community Hospice offers bereavement
services to individuals, families and chil-
dren, as well as support groups and Camp
Healing Powers, a therapeutic camp experi-
ence open to any child ages 7 to 17 who is
grieving the death of a loved one.
Clemens says survivor coping comes
with R-E-S-T
Reasonable expectations;
Exercise;
Simplify to relieve stress and
Take time to relax and remember your
l1ved one.
"It takes communication, compromise
and choices to successfully handle- difficult
challenges stifling those feelings is not
the answer," said Clemens. "To survive, do
positive things that make you -feel good and
seem most appropriate to you."
Plan a remembrance ceremony;
Serve that persons favorite foods at
a gathering;
Toast the missing person;
Listen to their favorite music;
Light a candle;
Plant a tree;
Hang a stocking for that person.
Some honor their departed loved ones
by occasionally wearing a piece of their
jewelry when the day is a difficult one. It's
important to remember that everyone has a
different way of coping. Family and caregiv-
ers are often hit pretty hard by a loss. There
are specific things friends can do and should
not do to help someone who is grieving the
loss of a loved one. If you would like to know
more, Clemens will conduct another "Hope
for the Holidays" meeting in Orange Park
on Thursday, Dec. 6, from 6:30-8 p.m. at Is-
land View Baptist Church in the Fellowship
Hall at 900 Park Ave. For more information
on this or other bereavement programs of-
fered by Community Hospice, contact their
Orange Park office at 728 Blanding Blvd. or

He said he sees it nothing more than

Searchers find body of


missing Miami boater


Clay Today staff
GREEN COVE SPRINGS The body
of a Miami man who fell off a sailboat in
the St. Johns River was found Wednes-
day, Dec. 12, by a state wildlife officer,
authorities said.
An autopsy will be performed on the
body of Cesar Martin Montano to de-
termine the cause of death, said Karen
Parker of the. state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. The body was
found about 10:30 a.m. nearly two miles
from where Montano was first reported
missing Friday, Dec. 7, Parker said.
Montano's wife, Jennifer, made a
call for help about 9:15 a.m. when the
couple's 27-foot sailboat was south of the
Shands Bridge, the Clay County Sheriff's
Office said. She told police Montano fell
overboard while attempting to put gaso-
line in the engine.
An initial search by the Sheriff's Of-
fice marine unit, dive team, air units and
patrol deputies found no sign.of him, al-
though a gas can was spotted in the river
from the air.
Officials from several agencies also
searched throughout the weekend with no
result, said FWC Lt. George Pottorf.
"It's very sad. If only he had been
wearing a life jacket, we-would not be out

Montano and his wife, Jennifer, were
on .a 12-day trip that began in Miami.
They were headed for Welaka from Jack-

thorities said.
Officers from the FWC, Clay and St.

fice said.
He refused to put down the weapon
then fired one shot in the air before lower-
ing the barrel and firing at least one shot
toward responding officers, Sheriff Rick
Beseler said. The two were about 30 feet
apart when the shots were fired.
Deputy Eric Twisdale, a 10-year
Sheriff's Office veteran, then fired sev-
eral shots at McAnnally, who was taken
to Shands Jacksonville. He remained in
critical condition at the hospital.
Green Cove Springs Officer Chris Ken-
nison did not fire his weapon, Beseler said.
McAnnally has been arrested in Clay
County seven times since 2004 on charg-
es that included grand theft, burglary and
armed burglary and retail theft, the Sher-
iff's Office said
The Florida Department of Law En-


forcement is investigating the shooting
incident, which is standard procedure, the
Sheriff's Office said.
Beseler said it was unclear why the
man was angry.
Twisdale, 36, has taken several days
leave, which was scheduled prior to the
shooting, Beseler said.
Deputies arrested McAnnally Nov.
29 at a Middleburg home after the hom-
eowner called police to say the man was
outside his door with a gun, according to
a Sheriff's Office incident report.
Jason Tebedo, of the 1500 block of Ash-
leigh Street, told deputies McAnnally was
demanding $50 that McAnnally's grand-
mother had given to him, the report says.
McAnnally allegedly grabbed a hand-
gun in his pocket to display the handle and
told Tebedo, "I ain't playing around," the
report says.
The man told deputies "1I felt like my life
was in extreme danger," the report says.
McAnnally was released on $7,500
bond the week he was shot, records say.

Military


Pearl Harbor memorial brings young, old together


By Jim Kelly
Staff Writer
ABOARD USS SAMUEL ROBERTS Com-
mander Wallace Lovely, Commanding the
USS Samuel Brooks Roberts, FFG-58, was
pressed quickly into action just prior to a
Pearl Harbor Day reunion at Mayport.
He handled the emergency order to
bring the ship about and return to home
port at Mayport Naval Station to pick up
more than 240 retired military, descen-
dants and surviving family members for
the express purpose of providing trans-
portation to the deep sea Atlantic in re-
membrance of Pearl Harbor Day attacks.
Included on the Roberts list of VIPs
passengers were three Pearl Harbor sur-
vivors. Jane Duncan, daughter of Pearl
Harbor survivor Charles Ellis, spoke of
her privilege to be out to sea to commem-
orate the loss of life-of many Navy person-
nel during the 1944 attack.
"We owe them so much, those heroes
who fought and died that day," said Duncan,
who has been along on eight other voyages
with her aging father, "and they continued
to persevere while under attack, afraid for
their lives and witnessing so much carnage
and confusion during those first hours."
Chuck Ellis, 19 years old then and 83
today, stood alongside his pal and former
shipmate Al Cory, 17 then, 85 now. They
answered the questions asked of them al-
most routinely.
"We have lots of practice answer-
ing questions about that day,". said Ellis,
looking far back into his presumably aging
memory nerves; his brain kept preven-
tively maintained all these years by an-

The Giving Tree tradition


starts at NAS Jax


By MC2 (AW/NAC) Kaitlyn Patterson
JaxAir News
The NAS Jacksonville Navy Exchange
(NEX) began a new Christmas tradition this
year with the "Giving Tree."
The NEX recently held a ceremony in
the courtyard to light the Giving Tree. Chil-
dren from the NAS Jax Child Development
Center (CDC) made ornaments to decorate
the tree and sang Christmas songs at the
ceremony. They also helped NAS Jax Com-
manding Officer Capt. Jack Scorby Jr. count
down to the lighting of the tree. Santa also
showed up to give the children a treat for all
their hard work.
"It's so good to see you and what you're
doing for the kids who are less fortunate. This
is really great," Scorby told the children.
The Giving Tree is a community out-
reach program for NAS Jax that helps bring
Christmas cheer to families that need a
little help this holiday season. On the back
of each handmade ornament is information
on a child that needs a little extra gift this
year. The ornament has the child's sex,
age, clothing size and maybe a special toy
.if requested., NEX customers can pick an
ornament off the tree, register their name
at Personalized Services inside the NEX and
purchase or make gifts for the child. The
gift should then be returned, unwrapped,
within seven days to Personalized Services.
The deadline for gifts is Dec. 15. The USO
will wrap the gifts and deliver them to the
families Dec.17.
NEX General Manager Steve Foster
helped start this program after seeing a
similar one at NS Mayport when he worked
at the exchange there. "It's a great thing
to be able to help someone during the holi-
day season," Foster said. "Plus, it gets the
kids involved."
NEX'Service Operation Manager Pat

Jr. pulls a decoration off the "Giving Tree."

Schaaf assisted Foster with starting the
Giving Tree at NAS Jax. "The Giving Tree
is a special community project that we're
doing here to help families on our base that
may need the extra help that.we all some-
times need." The goal of Schaaf and Foster
was to get NAS Jax streamlined with NS
Mayport in helping the community during
the holiday season.
The USO worked with base command
master chiefs to put together a list of Sail-
ors who had children that would benefit
from having their names on the Giving Tree.
All names are confidential.
For more information on how to help a
NAS Jax child this Christmas, visit the Navy
Exchange or contact the USO.

They even made gallons of coffee in
order to dye their white hats brown in

angry? "Not really, we were too busy

right then."

Circus Fit targets kids


Special to Clay Today

ORANGE PARK -- Considering the recent
findings released by the New England
Journal of Medicine that 1 in 3 children
are considered overweight or obese, the
YMCA of Florida's First Coast has part-
nered with the CircusFit program estab-
lished by Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus. CircusFit is a fitness pro-
gram developed to encourage America's
youth to lead active lifestyles by combin-
ing the fun of circus skills with stretching,
strength building and aerobic exercise.
On Tuesday, Dec. 11, four clowns, in-
cluding the first female clown to graduate
from Ringling Brothers School in 1976,
will be teaching YMCA's youth partici-
pants how to "clown around" to get fit.
The training is in preparation for the
CircusFit program to be introduced to
more than 1,500 children throughout Clay
County.
The CircusFit program will be offered
at 24 Clay County YMCA after-school sites
starting Jan. 9. The YMCA also received
1,200 tickets donated by Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus which is
coming to Jackonville Jan. 16-20.
The tickets are valued at $28,800 and
were given as a donation along with 1,200
clown noses.

approached the CHS Student Council with an idea for Christmas for Soldiers. The Student Council, with the support of Principal Pete McCabe. began
a campaign asking for donations of boxed goodies including board games, puzzle books, gum, candy, socks and hygiene items.

New software

can monitor

sex offenders

By Leo King
Staff Writer

ORANGE PARK- The Clay County sheriff
has found yet another way to find sexual
offenders and predators.
Sheriff Rick Beseler unveiled new
software on Thursday, Dec. 6, that will
allow country residents to track offend-
ers.
Named OffenderWatch, the inter-
active computer program is tied to the
sheriff's web site and lets the public dis-
cover if there are any known convicted
offenders in their neighborhood.
Mark Wilson of Watch Systems,
LLC from Coving-
ton, La., and Be-
seler presented
the information to
media.
The purpose of
the program is to
lessen residents'
anxiety by pro-
actively alerting MarkWilson
them should an
offender/predator move into their area.
The program also enables the Sheriff's
Office to verify that newly registered of-
fender/predator addresses do not violate
any safety buffers in place around insti-
tutions in the county such as schools,
day-care centers and churches.
This new service will enhance but
not replace the in-person agency noti-
fications done already in neighborhoods
by the Sheriffs Office, officials said.
Beseler said it would enhance the
sheriff's department in general and the
Special Victims Unit in particular.
A circular pattern displays a two-
mile radius, or one mile in any direction
from the center.
Beseler pointed out sheriff's offices
in Jacksonville and St. Johns County are
using the software.
"It will enable citizens to search for
the presence of registered sex offenders
and predators living near their homes,
places of work, schools and day care
centers. OffenderWatch users may enter
any address and see a map and listing of
offenders or predators within one mile of
that address," he said.
The software went online on Thurs-
day, Dec. 6.
Beseler said county residents can
now register addresses and receive
emails from the CCSO alerting them that
an offender or predator has registered
an address within one mile.
Wilson noted there are three ways to
be notified online on the website, via
email or standard mail.
Beseler added, "This doesn't replace
any other system. This is an additional
notification system."
He added, "There are 300 preda-
tors in Clay County. Those are the ones
they know about."
Detective Melissa Dangerfield ex-
plained, "There are others we don't know
about the ones who have never been
caught. Those are the ones that scare us."
She said they get an average of 10
to 12 new people added each month,
but about that many move away s well,
so the total number remains fairly con-
stant.
She also pointed out that convicted
offenders and predators are required
to register no matter where they live,
and if they move, they are required to
reregister.within 48 hours at their new
location.
CCSO spokeswoman Mary Justino
said, "We are charged $7,000 per year.
The fee is based on county popu-
lation, so other, larger counties, like
Duval, pay much more, and small ones
pay less. It should be a great tool and
service to residents once they know they
can use it."
The software is currently running in
over 300 agencies in 24 states.

Kids enjoy holiday with firefighter 'buddies'


Special to Clay Today
MIDDLEBURG -- More than 30 off-duty
firefighters arrived at fire Station 14 in
.Middleburg Saturday, Dec. 8, eager to
spend the day with less-fortunate Middle-
burg children.
After being assigned, a "buddy," the
children were treated to hot chocolate
and doughnuts from Middleburg's own
Donut Caf6, and then whisked away to
Wal-Mart on Branan Field-Chaffee Road
for an exciting morning of shopping.
Two Clay County Council of Aging
drivers, Ira Warren and Earl Greene, do-
nated their time to drive the children-to


Wal-Mart.
Firefighter buddies helped each child
make selections from the vast array of
toys displayed. Clay County Professional
Firefighter's Local # 3362 picked up the
tab for the gifts.
On the return trip, the children were
treated to a wonderful display as Life
Flight 2, based in Green Cove Springs,
landed at Middleburg Elementary school.
The children got an up close and personal
look at the helicopter, and were able to
ask questions of the crew.
Once back at Station 14, delicious
Papa John's pizza was served, and the
children made gift trays for their par-


ents from kits, complements of The Home
Depot on Branan Field Road. An unex-
pected visit from Santa himself made the
day, as he distributed stockings filled with
goodies.
County Manager Fritz Bering also
stopped by to join in the festivities.
At the end of the fun-filled day, each
child's family was provided with a Christ-
mas food basket, generously donated by
Wal-Mart.
So many generous donations of time
and services made this day possible. Clay
County firefighters were overjoyed to bring
smiles to these children, and look forward
to this becoming an annual event.

Fleming Island soccer


team wins 11th straight


Missed opportunities


cost Middleburg in loss


By Randy Lefko
Correspondent

FLEMING ISLAND Fleming Island High's
boys soccer team continued their ram-
page on the 2007 season with 3-goal hat
tricks by both Brennan Hyler and Jeremy
Urbano leading to a dominant 8-0 non-
district win over visiting Ridgeview High
on Monday night.
The triple-triple highlighted what
'head coach Frank Pontore calls a smart-
er, faster game that has given the Golden
Eagles an unblemished 11-0 record with
district foe Bartram Trail High slated for
Friday in the final district game.

Keystone's Maurice Godau scored the game win-
ner in a hard fought battle against Oak Hall.

"We are trying to close down the field,
run a little smarter game and save some en-
ergy for the playoff runs," said Pontore. "We
have great athletes that hustle to every ball,
but I want them to minimize the field with
smart play. That's where we are."
In the first half, Urbano and Hyler
took control of the game quickly with se-
nior midfielder Zack Papuga emerging as
the team's quarterback and feeding laser-
guided passes to their feet as Fleming Is-
land went up 6-0 at the half.
"Speed, speed, speed, is what is get-
ting the job done," said Hyler, who scored
his third early in the second half to com-
plete his three-goal performance.
"Zack circles into the middle to start
the offensive push and Jeremy and I just
fly down the sidelines," he said.
Hyler's first goal was just a display of
his footspeed with a breakaway solo goal
to start off the barrage.
"We have good combinations going
right now," said Hyler.
In a 2-0 district win over Wolfson on
Friday, Hyler noted that the Golden Eagle
attack got stymied by Wolfson's ability to
clog the middle.
"We got the two goals early, but they
were a little more physical in the middle
and were able to slow us," he said. "We
adjusted and pushed the ball down the
sidelines to keep the win."
Fleming Island's other two goals were
scored by Matt Cooksey in the first half

and the game-ender by Nathan Branz with
about five minutes left on the clock. Goalie
Mike Thorne knocked down just five Rid-
geview shots in the first half with freshman
Zack Slanker preserving the shutout.
The Golden Eagles finish their season
for December with Bartram Trail, Jack-
sonville Bolles on Dec. 17 and Orange
Park on Dec. 21.
In other action:
The Keystone Heights Indians and the -
Oak Hall Eagles fought for eighty minutes
in a nail bitter with Indians pulling out
a 4-3 victory. Keystone started strong
controlling the action and pushing for-
ward for many scoring chances when in
the twenty-fifth minute Ryan Miller sent
at pass to Maurice Godau for a Keystone
1-0 lead. An alert Brad Gober converted
on a wide open net in the thirty-seventh
minute assisted by Godau for a Keystone
2-0 half-time lead.
Oak Hall came out hard in the second
half opening up their attack. Keystone
counter attack with shots off the goalie
and goal post, but could not score. Oak
Hall broke the ice in the forty-fifth minute
when Nick Salafrio took a pass from Jona-
than Wang and beat freshman goalie Tim
Frysinger to cut the Keystone lead in half
2-1. Then in the 50th minute Austin Groves
slammed the ball in the net off a Gober as-
sist for 3-1 lead. Oak Hall came back on a
pair of goals from super sophomore striker
Jordan Chung who fired two bullets into
the net in the fifty-sixth and seventy-sev-
enth minute to knot the score at 3-3.
Not to be denied Keystone took the
ensuing kick off and worked ball quickly
down the field inside the eighteen and
fired several shots that ended up in a
scrum in front of the net when Godau
poked the ball pass the goalie giving Key-
stone the hard earned win 4-3.
Keystone out shot Oak Hall 24-12 and
improved their record to 7-5-1 while Oak
Hall dropped to 8-4-2.

MIDDLEBURG The Middleburg Broncos
hosted 2A state semifinalists last year
Jacksonville Providence in soccer ac-
tion on Friday and the Broncos held their
own against the Stallions for at least the
opening 35 minutes of the game as nei-
ther team could score a goal but in the
end Providence used a three goal scoring
spree to turn away the Broncos 5-1.
The Stallions methodically began to
pull away from Middleburg in the second
half and scored the deciding goals in a
six-minute span to turn a 1-all tie into a
4-1 lead and all but put to bed the hopes
for a Bronco upset.
"We were trying out a different forma-
tion in the first half and it seemed a little
uncomfortable for the guys, but the bot-
tom line is it didn't seem to work as well,"
said Providence coach Scott Dunckel.
The Broncos played very defensively to
open the game and limited the scoring chanc-
es for Providence by keeping them away from
the net and it appeared the Middleburg of-
fense got things rolling with back-to-back-to-
back shots on goal but none could pierce the
back of the Stallion net, which would come
back to haunt them in the end.
Middleburg's string of missed opportu-
nities continued as they had a cross taken
away about one yard from the net, then
Cody Spanbauer just missed a goal when
he hit the post with 11:37 left and yet

the game, Weiskopf put one past the out-
stretched arms of the sliding goalkeeper
from 12-yards out to get the equalizer and
make the score 1-1. However, things just
went south from there for the Broncos,
when six minutes later freshman, Matt
Mackoul, shot one from directly in front
of the net from 10 yards out before the
defense could converge on him and put it
past the reach of the Bronco keeper for the
2-1 lead and Providence added three more

After Middleburg had a couple of
promising drives stall, John Christie of
Providence scored the games first goal,
Christie appeared to be offside but was
not called and the Stallions took the 1-0
lead with 6:40 left in the half.
Although the Broncos trailed at the
half, Middleburg coach Craig Martin was
inspired by the effort stating, "We were
really determined in the first half, and
played really hard."

"It was really a combination of both
our players gaining confidence and their
players losing confidence," said Dunckel
about the 7:52 span in which his team
scored three goals.
"We really lost focus after they scored
that second goal on us, we let it get to us
and because of that it got out of hand,"
added Middleburg's Martin.

season Coach Martin is still optimistic.

Lady Panthers lose district

The Panthers also have added two new
coaches to the staff in Carolyn Ziegler and
Juan B. Cowan Colon and he said, "We are
still in the learning process, we've got a
lot of freshman and we are working with
them both physically and mentally. We've
got to work on the physical part because
every team is pushing us around right
now. Coach Adamson is doing a very good
job getting the team ready mentally and
we're here to support her. We have young
girls and they are in the process of learn-
ing and it will take a while but we've got
faith in them. You've got to take the bitter
with the sweet; you see progress some-
times then (the game) doesn't let you take
the full satisfaction. It's a step at a time.
I'm pretty sure by next year you'll see us
playing at a different level."
Adamson added, "I'm very excited
about this team and the ways we are
growing. We've got a lot of youth which
is a good thing. Your going to make
mistakes then grow then make some
more mistakes but grow stronger. I'm
pleased; I'm not disappointed at all with
the game tonight, or our record. I always
say every year that you play for Janu-
ary and anything can happen during the
districts. I told them tonight that we've
got to keep working and getting stronger
and the main thing is to have faith in
your teammates. They are going to grow

Masalin, Pirie lead Lady Devils over Matanzas


By Randy Lefko
Correspondent

Clay High's girls basketball team ratch-
eted up their offense behind three three-
pointers from Sarah Pirie and Mariah
Masalin's hot shooting for 24 points as
the Lady Blue Devils bombarded visit-
ing Matanzas High 61-22 in district play
Tuesday night. Clay improves to 3-6, 1-4
in district.
"I am glad to see that Sarah joined
in on the scoring," said Clay High Head
Coach Jared Moses. "We've been strug-
gling and the points put on the board
tonight is a good sign as the districts
start soon."
Pirie hit for 19 total points to add out-
side scoring numbers to Masalin's total.
"We have had good shooting from
Mariah for the season and a lot of defens-
es have been double teaming her," said
Moses. "Sarah stepped up tonight and
was making big shots all night."
Moses though was not completely
satisfied in the first quarter as he sub-
stituted the entire first team at the
3:28 mark with just four points scored
in the quarter.
"Sometimes it's good to make them


watch the game from the bench," said
Moses. "They weren't playing like they
were capable of. I think it got their at-
tention."
In the second quarter, Clay exploded
from an 11-6 first quarter lead to a 31-10
halftime deficit with Pirie hitting for eight
and key defensive steals from Ta_Neisha
Pifer, De-Alisha Watson and Masalin.
"We started attacking them," said
Moses.
In the third period, the barrage con-
tinued with Masalin coming alive for 10
points as Clay increased their lead to a
51-17 lead. Key on defense was Court-
ney Shabazz who stole four passes from
Matanzas that led to scores.
Clay has a key district game against
PonteVedra Nease High on Thursday be-
fore heading to Middleburg High for a dou-
ble header with both boys and girls teams
playing the Broncos. Junior varsity boys
start at 4:30 p.m. with the girls playing at
6 p.m. and boys playing at 7:30 p.m.
In other action Katherine Zander led
Orange Park to 58-33 win over Ridgeview
to bounce back from their first loss of the
season last week. ,
Senior Chelsea Williams also hit nine
points all coming from beyond the arc.

win.

but the Raiders finished in the top five in,
the area for production which led questions
to the defense that Leasor directed which
gave up 273 points during the season in-
cluding 54, 35 and 42 points in three of
their four final games of the season .
"I have tremendous respect for him
and he brought the program from where
it was to where it is now but at times you
-have- to make tough-decisions and this is
one of them," said Anderson.
The announcement coincided with a
planned booster club meeting on Tuesday
night with parents, players, coaches and
Principal Michael Wingate who announced
the decision to them, several parents and
players were dismayed with the decision
and Anderson was aware of that stating,
"Anytime you have change there will be
some resistance or don't agree with the
moves and Coach Leasor had a great rap-
port with the kids so it's understandable
they may have been devastated but our big-
gest goal right now is to find the right fit for
the program and keep it moving in the right
direction as of now Coach Rob Garcia will
wear the interim head coach label and we
will move forward from there."
Orange Park has not reach the state
playoffs since 1999 and Anderson's goal
is to change that with his next hire, "We
have posted the position on the FHSAA
website and I'm sure it will garner a lot of
interest both locally and out of state, we
also are in the process of putting together
a search committee to help with finding
the right fit the kids are our main con-
cern and doing what's right for them."
Leasor who was available for comment


late Tuesday said, "I believe the decision
was made a long time ago and I think this
sets a precedence for other coaches in the
area who are coming off winning seasons
- you are never safe."
The former head coach was known as
a program changer in his stops in Lou-
isville, Daytone Beach and several other
high school programs but he never really
had the success some thought he should
have with Orange Park, in his first four
seasons the Raiders went 2-8 (twice), 3-7
and 5-5 before the breakout 7-4 season
that preceded the dismal 1-9 showing this
year but through it-all Leasor felt he was
moving the program in the right direc-
tion even after dismissing three offensive
coaches recently.
"It definitely was a tough season but
I had looked forward to getting back to
work but we'll see what happens from
here, I spoke with the kids as a group and
told them they must have good character
through it all," said Leasor.
Leasor also teaches history at the
school and plans on continuing in that
capacity and also said he would be open
to helping a new coach but he knows that
may be farfetched stating, "It would be
up to the new coach so it's totally hypo-
thetical but I enjoy and love the kids and
that's what it's all about."
Anderson who was hired by Leasor as
linebackers caoch when he arrived at the
school from Tennessee added, "That made
it tough too, I have the greatest amount of
respect for Ted but we needed a change, ul-
timately we will have a new coach and the
assistants that are here now will be here or
at least until the new head coach arrives."
The Raiders plan to have their new
man in place by the end of January.

going to really work him in practice and
did not know how much action he would
get, but his number was called and he
made the most of it."
Added Walters, "I was a little nervous
when I stepped on the floor but after tak-
ing and hitting my first 3 the nervousness
went away."
Along with Walters, Andrew Hamilton
and Will Frey stepped forward to lead the
comeback and eventual win, Frey scored
21 points and Hamilton scored 19 with
10 of them coming in the final moments of
regulation and overtime, but in the end free
throw shooting down the stretch separated
the winners from the losers this night.
Fleming Island went 18 of 23 from the
charity stripe and 10 of 11 during the clos-
ing moments while Ridgeview shot 20 of 35
and 4 of 12 during the closing moments.
"We have done a complete 180 degree turn
since the beginning of the season, we are still
young and still learning and this will definitely
be used as a learning tool," added Graham.

Local wrestling programs return to mat


Randy Lefko
Correspondent

ORANGE PARK With a regional title from
last year and seven returners back at Clay
High, the Blue Devil wrestlers, currently
ranked #2 in class 1A, have some bumps
and bruises to deal with, but look to the
spring as another big year for Clay High
wrestling.
"Of course, losing a leader like Cory
Baudendistel affects the team, but his
legacy as well as the legacy of the other
15 state champs from Clay is what drives
this team," said Blue Devil coach Jim
Reape. "We have a strong return group
with seven state qualifiers."
Clay recently took top honors at the
12-team Ed Kilpatrick Classic Tournament
at Citrus High School after taking a tough
second at the equally prestigious Sebring
1A Shootout in November. The Blue Dev-
ils currently sit behind Sebring champion
Riverdale in the IA rankings.
"They are by far one of the best teams
in the state with us number two and Su-
wannee High ranked fourth or fifth," said
Reape. "Once we get through a couple
minor injuries and football bruises, we'll
get stronger."


I.


Middleburg High will look to returning battlers, Jared Podhaney, from left, JJ. Steichen, Mark Swartz and Larry Cames for this year's wrestling season. ,


Clay High's Eric Minich, from left, Kyle Mills, Wade Coston, Garrett Soileau and Steven Joseph will look to
bring home a state title for the Blue Devils.


Clay High's football team extended
their season one game into the regional
playoffs this year with members Eric
Minich, Kyle Mills and Ken Beecher all
hitting the wrestling mats a week late.
Returning state qualifiers for Reape
will be junior Garrett Soileau, third at
112 in 2006 and ranked number one; se-
nior Steve Joseph, second at 119 in 2006
and also ranked number one; junior Robby
Nicholson, junior Kyle Mills, senior Wade
Coston, fourth at 152 in 2006; junior
Eric Minich, and junior Ken Beecher. The
group had a combined won/loss record of
255-61 last year before the state meet.-
At Fleming Island, the co-district
champions (with Tallahassee Lincoln)
and third place regional finisher look to
improve upon their record with the com-
bination of three brothers and a quartet
of young guns in the lower weights as the
Golden Eagles wrestling prowess gets. big-
ger and better each year.
In the latest reports after initially
suspending the program, Fleming Island
wrestlers will get back on the mat some-
time after Jan. 1, 2008 and that's good
news for head coach Jeff Jordan who said,
"The three Taylor brothers, Adam, our re-
gion champ and state runnerup at 140
and his brothers, Grant and Chris, should
have a great season," said Fleming Island
coach Jeff Jordan. "The self-claimed "Four
Horsemen," Mark Cornett, Corey Perry,
Chris Fox and Harrison Stubbs all have


started well this season for our lower
weights and should get stronger."
Fleming Island opened their season at
the Lincoln Duals at Tallahassee Lincoln
High and, finished that tournament with
wins over three-time district champion
Lincoln who is currently ranked 15th in
class 2A, Tallahassee Lawton Chiles and
Panama City Mosley, a district champ
and ranked 12th in 2A. Also, at the high-
powered Seahorse Open Tournament at
Nova High over Thanksgiving, led by Adam
Taylor's-second place finish at the state
level competition, Fleming Island High's
wrestling team garnered three firsts and
three seconds.
Jordan cited footballers David Mat-
thews and Zack Pierce as strength in the
bigger weights, but needing mat time after
the Fleming Island football team recently
lost in the region final playoffs.
For Middleburg, four returners: se-
niors Jared Podhaney, Larry Carnes and
J.J. Steichen, plus sophomore Mike Swartz
will be the core of the Bronco matmen.
Podhaney finished third at state at 160
with a 37-5 record with Carnes qualify-
ing, but withdrawing due to injury. Swartz
finished one win away from qualifying at
112 as a sophomore and Steichen blew a
shoulder early in the season and nearly
qualified two years ago as a sophomore.

The American Fishing Tour District
19 held its most recent bass tournament
out of Palatka Saturday. While balmy tem-
peratures, sunny skies and a lack of wind
made for a beautiful day on the river, the
conditions also made for poor catches
across the tournament field. Except in the
case of Frank Streeter.
Always a force on the big river, Street-
er caught a 5-fish limit anchored by three
'hawgs', as we like to call over-stuffed bass,
including the biggest of the tournament at
7.66 pounds. His total weight was 25.56
pounds. Nobody else was even close.
There was a tight battle for 2nd place.
Tom Reeves had 10.65 pounds. Allen Hop-
per had 10.48; Stanley Hunt, 10.25.
Even tournament director TJ Clark
barely edged-out Adam Hemphill by 0.03
pounds to take 5th with 7.66 pounds. Roger
Helm was hot on their heels with 7.04.


Streeter wows crowd at AFT Tournament


It would have been a close race if
Streeter had stayed home.
Many local anglers are enjoying the
serious, yet friendly competition of Ameri-
can Bass Anglers' American Fishing Tour.
"We had 25 guys today," said assistant di-
rector, Debbie Clark, who noted that four
of them were non-boaters. Those without
boats are welcome to fish and will be
paired with a boating partner for the day.
It is a wonderful opportunity to learn from
and share knowledge with others who are
passionate about th sport.
As for the weather Debbie said, "The
launch was delayed until 7:15 due to
heavy fog.-It finally burned off around
11 a.m. The weather was great, but not
for fishing. It was&79 (degrees) with an
east-southeast wind at 4 mph not even
a ripple on the water."
TJ, Debbie and all of the guys would
love to fish with you at their next tourney,
January 12th, 2008. Call 904-291-3956
for details.
Judging from the results of this tour-
ney it doesn't seem as though the bass are
bedding, unless they are doing it where
they sometimes do in Lake George before


Christmas and Streeter was the first man
to make his way down there. Sometimes
bed fishing becomes a flat out race when
there are a limited number of fish up shal-
low in a known area. Then again, when
gas costs $3.00 per gallon few anglers
are looking to run a bass boat any farther
than they must to find fish. Most rigs only
give you about five miles to the gallon.
As for bedding fish, Peter Thliveros
told me recently that he has noticed a

of over $1,500,000 in tournament cash
over his career, 'Peter T', as he is known
throughout the bassing world, knows what
he's talking about. He says not to wait on
the spawners. "This time of year you can
get on the outside edge of the grass, in
four feet or so, and burn a Rat-L-Trap or
even a crankbait, like the Rapala DT6 and
consistently catch bass of all sizes with a
real good shot at finding a school of big
females staged-up."
In addition to crankbaits, Pete points
out that surface plugs are often the tick-
et on overcast or breezy days. "I love to
throw the old Devil's Horse. Just make
sure the blades are spinning freely. I

Local Elite Series pro Bryan Hudgins,
who competes with Peter T these days,
said topwater bass action is excellent
right now. "You can have an absolute
blast with those four-pounders that are

group will need help from some promising
freshman to keep the team competitive in :-.
the bigger matches. .
"We got a good freshman from Wilkin-
son Junior High's program; Matt Lane at
103, with four or five more in other weight
classes that could help us," said Warner.
Ridgeview coach Chris McNealy will
be looking to a core of big men also to
fortify his team with big man Jonathan
Dixon at 285, only a sophomore, the king-
pin. Dixon had a regular season record ofA- M I
33-4 last year and lost two matches at the
state meet.
"Hie will dominate this year," said Mc-
Nealy. who lost state runnerup Stephon
Cohens to graduation. "lHe is big and fast .
and hungry and with a year under his belt
in all the big meets, he'll be less nervous
against, the major competition."
Joining Dixon will also be returners.
Shane and Cole Hoskins, Derek Johns and
Richard Manwarren.
The Orange Park High team is return- ..
ing seven starters from a team that fin-
ished a surprising second in last year's
district tournament.
Ridgeview High returns 285-pound strongman
-,Jonathan Dixon, a sophomore, to lead the Panthers
"'this season. Helping Dixon doing better pushups
".are Cole Hoskins, from left, Shane Hoskins, Derek
Johnson and Richard Manwarren.

According to Head Coach Chad Park-
er, a combination of youth and experience
77 will lead the Raiders who look to build
upon last season's success.
"What I'm really looking forward to is
the improvement from a summers worth of
work," Parker said. "Consistently, we had
about 20 guys in the wrestling room during
I our club season. The last time that was the
case, Orange Park had pretty good teams.
The senior class really set an example during
-- those summer months,.and they will be ex-
_..pected to do even more during the season.
.- Retuirning for the Raiders will be se-
niors Jason Malta, Gabriel Herrera, An-
thony Owens, Matt Thompson, juniors
Mike Miller and Will Shockley and sopho-
more Pat Laniel.
Orange Park in their first dual match
of the season wrestled their way to a 66-
15 win over the Poinciana Eagles of Kis-
simmee and the Raider schedule will be
one of its most challenging in years, ac-
cording to Parker.
"We will be competing against some
of the nation's best programs," he said.
"There will be no inflated records or egos,
or a question of how tough we really are.
Orange Park High will lookto retumerWill Shockleyto lead the Raiders intobattle. Here Shockley clamps down on an Ocala Forestwrestlerin recent action at Orange Park. hdavis@jcpgroup.com

"Joining the chamber has put me in con-
tact with some of the most wonderful and
amazing people. The Chamber is full of fel-
low business owners that are willing to share
their experiences and useful insights, which
in turn enables me to make my business bet-
ter. I have met people that genuinely care
about Clay County. I found out that there is
a place to turn when I have questions. Most
of all, I found out that the Chamber is re-
ally about people-people coming together to
make a better life for themselves and their
community. "

"The Chamber offers a one-of-a-kind op-
portunity for nonprofits such as the Early
Learning Coalition of Clay, Nassau, Baker
and Bradford Counties. This is the key
place to connect leaders in our community
to the work we do on behalf of children and
their families. Business leaders who learn
about the importance of getting children off
to a good start support quality early learn-
ing opportunities. Our membership in the
Chamber helps us engage support and fu-
ture board members for our coalition. Our
membership in the Chamber is vital to our
community outreach and awareness effort."

Chamber Quarterly Breakfast


The Chamber held its first quarterly
breakfast of the new fiscal year on No-
vember 8. The workshop, entitled "The
Psychology of Government Contracting,"
taught participants the things they need
to know when considering doing business
with the government.
Paul Arrington of the Small Business


Center at the Jacksonville Regional Cham-
ber of Commerce facilitated the workshop.
He discussed the motivators that drive gov-
ernment and large government prime con-
tractors in deciding who to buy from.
The Chamber plans on presenting
several other business-related seminars
in 2008. Stay tuned for details.

Active and Focused on Economic Development


By Danita Andrews,
Director of Economic Development

The Chamber's
Economic Develop-
ment Division has
been extremely busy
with various activi-
ties specifically fo-
cused on increasing
business develop- ,
ment opportunities DanitaAindrews
on the international,
national, regional and local levels. We
began November with participation in the
Team Florida Brazil Mission. This impor-
tant global event for the state of Florida took
place November 3 through 8 in Sao Paulo,
Brazil. Enterprise Florida, Our state's lead
economic development organization, struc-
tured the mission as part of its comprehen-
sive strategy to market Florida products and
services worldwide and this was a great in-
ternational opportunity to help promote Clay
County's present and future business poten-
tial. While there, we gained insight into
the business climate of Brazil as Florida's
largest trading partner. For example, Bra-
zil has significant standing to build stronger
economic relationships with Florida com-
panies as the overall total trade between
our locations was documented in excess of
$11.3 billion dollars in 2006. Moreover,
the country's gross domestic product is
approximately $700 billion and represents
roughly half of the South American territory
and economy. The country is rich in agri-
cultural, mineral, and industrial resources
and offers substantial market opportuni-
ties for US exporters. In addition, Brazil is
progressive and is looking to industrialize
further through energy and transportation
investments, and has a tremendous drive
to cultivate export-led growth. Governor
Charlie Crist led the mission of more than
200 representatives from all parts of the
state with diverse backgrounds as leaders


in business, government and or community.
Various business briefings, networking and
receptions were held; however Kellie Jo and
I spent most of our time at the Team Florida
Business Matchmaker and EXPO held at the
AM CHAM (American Chamber of Commerce
in Brazil). We were provided with a transla-
tor that was of great assistance; however
there were no barriers in promoting op-


portunity and awareness of Clay County,
the Northeast Florida Region and our local
business community as the people we met
were eager to establish connections. We
received tremendous response from Brazil-
ian business and entrepreneurs interested
in developing relationships and furthering
trade in sectors such as paper products,
computer software, automotive, medical

found the demand for American products in
Brazil to be quite vast and we believe this
mission will prove very beneficial for our
international trade program overall.
We are pleased to bring you information
on a few additional statewide summit events
of importance to economic development and
business development. For example, Aman-
da Meyer, Investor and Events Coordinator
attended the Manufacturer's Association of
Florida (MAF) 4th Annual summit in Lake
Mary on November 5th to gain insights into
current trends and concepts beneficial to
our existing industry program. (MAF was
organized in 2006 to advocate on behalf of
all manufacturers in Florida with the prima-
ry purpose of improving the manufacturing
business climate and developing a qualified
workforce.) A few examples of the topics
covered included Florida's tax landscape
and reducing tax liabilities, preparing youth
for careers in manufacturing and career
academies, as well as engineering technol-
ogy, greening of manufacturing, monitoring
internal and external supply chain concepts,
and the growing transportation challenges

increased need for manufacturers to export
in order to stay successful, which ties back
to the importance of international trade and
diversification of market opportunities.
In addition, Jill Schechter, Marketing
and Research Coordinator attended the 10th
Annual Florida Brownfields Conference en-
titled, Revitalizing Florida's Future: From
People to Properties. This event was held
in Orlando, November 7- 9 and covered the
nuts and bolts of Brownfields redevelopment
with core concepts in environmental liability
& reuse of contaminated sites. The event
is designed to generate awareness of the
tools and resources available for successful
redevelopment of sites with environmental
concerns. Concepts involved in navigating
through engineering and legal strategies
as well as political and community aspects
involved in acquiring and cleaning up sites
was covered through various seminars, lec-
tures, presentations and case studies. It is
important to continue to be active and gen-
erate increased awareness within our local
community on the benefit of taking an unde-
rutilized piece of property, redeveloping the
brownfields and creating an aesthetically
pleasing environment for the community.
The continuing education and exposure to
additional potential resources assists us
in moving forward with the Greater Green
Cove Springs Brownfields initiative.
The Florida Defense Alliance (FDA) and
Enterprise Florida Stakeholder's Council
(EFI) meetings were held in Cape Canav-
eral November 13 14. The FDA's most
discussed topic involved encroachment of
surrounding communities upon military
bases in Florida, preservation of surround-
ing land near the bases and expansion of
land conservation efforts. For example, the
Forever Florida will greatly benefit Camp
Blanding to help in preventing community
development near key military training
areas. In addition the effort to expand NS
Mayport to nuclear carrier capabilities was
discussed as well as looking towards Cecil
Field to expand space and tourism. Key top-
ics covered in the EFI stakeholders council
included President, John Adam's report on
the current status of our state and key chal-
lenges. He reported that 1 million jobs were
created this year and Florida now has a 4%
unemployment rate. We have the 3rd larg-
est population in the United States, surpass-
ing New York. Our economy is equivalent
to the size of Argentina and there is a 6-day
delivery time from China compared to previ-
ous 70-day delivery. Key challenges that the
state needs to focus on include education
reform, day care improvement and settling
property tax issues. Moreover, the Econom-
ic Development Barometer Report found
that we need to set up positive marketing
and images of our state and to continue fo-
cusing on attracting new jobs.
Finally, we participated in a couple
of site consultant events in November/
December that will assist in business de-
velopment. The EFI Consultant event in
Dallas was held November 14 16 and
included meeting with key site consulting
firms involved in various types of reloca-
tion projects from warehouse-distribution
to office and all points in between. We also
generated a leadership trip to Atlanta to
meet with top office and industrial devel-
opers to discuss key attributes and loca-
tion advantages such as development of the
outerbeltway to greatly enhance transpor-
tation and establish direct connectivity to
interstate highways that will improve the
opportunities to create true employment
centers within Clay County. Overall, we
were very pleased with the outcome and
dialogue shared. It is important to con-
tinue building key relationships and gener-
ating awareness of Clay County's attributes
as an excellent location for business.

Bridal Bootcamp Will Film in Clay County
Leftfield Pictures came for a site visit
on Halloween. After spending several
hours at Camp Blanding, it was obvious
that this was a perfect setting. It had all
the components: barracks, an obstacle

Courtney Napurano was a delight as she
video-taped all the venues wrapped up in
one site. Our own David Silverman led
the way at Camp Blanding. Carl Post was
on hand to handle technical needs and I
coordinated anything that did not fall into
those categories. Ms. Napurano then
headed for Orlando and finally returned
to New York. After a week's deliberation,
it was decided that they will be here for

Kid Friendly on Une May Call You!
Several months ago, we were contact-

organization that works with children in
the classroom. There will be a 5th grade -
class in a Georgia Elementary School that
will be writing a book about Clay County
from a kid's point of view. We have sup-
plied them with contact information in
order to interview planners and .research
many of our festivals, historic sites and
natural attributes that are "kid friendly."
Next year some of the children will come
with their grandparents to visit some of
these places. In the meantime, we will be
on their website and will receive a copy
of the book. So if you get a call from CJ
with KFOL, he is our point of contact. It is
all about kids, education, families, travel,
scholarships and philanthropy. Go to

LEADERSHIP CLAY


December 2007


Leadership Clay Opens New Teacher Supply Depot


LEADERSHIP
CLAY
The Leadership Clay Class of 2007,
a program of the. Clay County Chamber
of Commerce established a Clay County
Teacher Supply Depot in the old Dunbar
School for the class project. The depot
was dedicated and opened to more than
120 teachers on November 3rd. The
depot is located at 1107 Martin Luther
King Jr. Boulevard in Green Cove Springs.
It will serve approximately 2,700 teach-
ers in 36 schools throughout the county.
New and reusable materials donated by
businesses and the community were dis-
tributed to teachers in Clay County free of
charge on'a first-come first-served basis.
"This Leadership Clay class wanted to do
something that would make a difference.
The teacher depot is an obvious choice as
there is a need," said Patrick Connolly,
WorkSource and president of Leader-
ship Clay. "When you help the teachers,
you're helping the students and they are










Teachers lining up
to shop the depot ,


our future." The depot was the idea of
class member Sandy Lancaster of AT&T.
Sandy wanted to establish a teacher sup-
ply depot in Clay County to help teachers
provide for their students without invest-
ing personal funds in their classrooms.
The response from teachers was in-
credible. "I really needed a kickball,"
said Alex Tyson, a 4th grade teacher at


c. rt i i :O -Il, pe nttr h"j,7 po F.


Ridgeview. "I did not know this was going
on," said Terri Woodward, a 7th grade
teacher at Lakeside Jr. High. "This is a
great last minute surprise."
The class would like to give special
recognition to the Nancy Keating of Chal-
lenge Enterprises for donating space, the
Duval County Teacher Supply Depot for
their advice, support, and generous do-


nations and the Clay County Education
Association for agreeing to manage the
depot after the opening. Donations are
needed ongoing to keep the depot active.
If you are interested in making a donation,
please call the Clay County Education As-
sociation at (904) 264-8810.

New Members Welcomed


to the Chamber


New members attend a reception in their honor on November 14


Fourteen business owners and indi-
viduals attended a new member recep-
tion presented by Baptist Health held in
their honor on Wednesday, November 14,
2007. Refreshments were provided and
members were welcomed by Greg Moore-
head, Chair of the Board of Directors,
Kellie Jo Kilberg, President and Chief
Economic Officer of the Chamber and
Lynn Gerlach, Chair of the Membership
Committee. Mr. Moorehead thanked the
members for joining the Chamber. Presi-
dent Kilberg said "It is an investment in
your business; the greater the numbers,
the stronger the voice.". She discussed
things that the Chamber is focused on
such as making sure that people make the
most of their membership. She suggested
they get involved in area councils, go to
networking events, attend regular events,
take a leadership role in a business coun-
cil, read LINKS, mentor someone, do busi-
ness with Chamber members, sponsor an


event and join a Leads group.
John Wilbanks, COO for Baptist and
Scott Finnegan, Controller for Baptist at-
tended the reception. Mr. Finnegan an-
nounced the new members to the existing
members and staff. New members were
given a plaque by a Chamber Ambassador
and posed for a group photo before net-
working with the Board of Directors, Mem-
bership Committee and Chamber staff.
The next New Member Reception is
planned for January 16, 2008. If you
have joined the Chamber in the last 12
months and have not attended a New
Member Reception, please contact Greg
Voss at 264-7503.
