What are they thinking of? "Redo" the
primaries in Florida and Michigan? What
colossal stupidity! What arrogance! While
we're at it, we might take a look around
and see if there are any other primaries
that we don't like; we might as well "redo"
them, too.
Preposterous! Have the geniuses that
run the national parties forgotten that
voters in these two states have already
voted in a primary? Are they childishly ig-
noring that the states still recognize those
primaries? If the national parties choose
to swallow their pique at being disobeyed
and certify the results of those primaries,
that's one thing. To saddle the voters or
the parties in these states with a huge
and totally unnecessary expense is quite
another. It is unconscionable.
I will go on record as saying that any
candidate that lends his or her support
to such a hare-brained idea is not worthy
of a vote.
So "Barry" Obama and Hillary Clinton
are approaching the national convention
neck and neck, so what? As things now
stand, neither one of them can win the
nomination. It's not the first time in his-
tory. Six times before, leading candidates
in the national conventions have been
unable to secure the nomination and a
"dark horse" has come from obscurity to
grab the prize. Do you doubt me? Franklin


From

Where

I Sit
Opinion Column
Bob Henderson .
BHENDERSON@JCPGROUP. COAI
Pierce was the first "dark horse" nominee.
Following after him were James K. Polk,
Abraham Lincoln, Rutherford B. Hayes,
James A. Garfield and Warren G. Harding.
You undoubtedly recognize these names
because they not only-won the nomina-
tion, they won the Presidency.
Mme. Hillary thinks the more-than-
two million voters in Florida and Michigan
should have their voices heard. So do I.
But, at the risk of being repetitive, they
have already spoken just listen to what
they have already said.
As an alternative to "redoing" the pri-
maries with polling places, workers, ma-
chines and all the rest, the suggestion has
been made to conduct an all mail-in pri-
mary. I find this second idea only a little
less unsettling than the first.
I mentioned the expense and was told
the DNC would pay for it. With what? The
last time I checked only a few days ago


- the DNC was almost bankrupt. The De-
troit Free Press reported March 6 that
DNC Chairman Howard Dean says his or-
ganization won't pay for a "redo" in the
two states. It also reported Gov. Charlie
Crist as saying Florida won't pay for it
either. That leaves the taxpayers in each
state doesn't it?
Some say that all 50 state parties
agreed not to conduct their primaries be-
fore a certain date. Apparently the legis-
latures of Florida and Michigan didn't get
the word; they set the date, the parties
didn't.
And now the cry has gone out, 'Our
people were disenfranchised." Balder-
dash! If voters, both Democrat and Re-
publican, were disenfranchised, as I have
maintained before, it was the national
apparatus that did it with high-handed
decree and the state that'confirmed it by
its wimpishly prostrating itself before the
almighty DNC and RNC. The solution? Ei-
ther seat the already elected delegates or
don't, but don't saddle Florida and Michi-
gan voters, Florida and Michigan supervi-
sors of elections and Florida and Michigan
taxpayers with any kind of "redo" for
something that has already been done.
So now the race is heating up and the
players are getting uncomfortable. I be-


lieve it was Democrat Harry Truman who
said, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of
the kitchen." Words to conjure with, 1 say.
Here's a radical idea, one that is not
likely to be taken seriously; I'm really
going out on a limb here.
Since there doesn't appear to be any
clear-cut leader in the ongoing cam-
paign and it seems quite unlikely one will
emerge, perhaps Democrats should model
their convention on a papal conclave. Put
all of the delegates and nobody else in
the convention hall and lock the doors.
Allow no communication with the outside.
Begin balloting by secret ballot; allow no
campaigning between ballots. Continue
balloting until a clear winner emerges. If
necessary, send in meals. Provide cots for
napping if it goes more than a day. The
winner might be one of the front runners.
But it might not be, either; it could be a
"dark horse."
Go ahead and jeer; it has been done
by the Vatican for a thousand years and
more.
I am 74 years old; I registered to vote
at 21. My first national election was in
1956.
I do not remember a time when I have
felt less sanguine about an election.
See Ya.

Clay Commission also against river plan


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer
GREEN COVE SPRINGS Although a St.
Johns River water withdrawal permit for
Seminole County was removed from the
agenda of the St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District (SJRWMD) pending decision on
an administrative appeal filed by the River-
keeper, Northeast Florida is not sitting back
and adopting a "wait and see" attitude.
This was evident from two items on the
agenda of the Board of County Commission-
ers (BCC) at its regular meeting Tuesday,
March 11.
Clay County Chamber of Commerce
Chairman Greg Moorehead introduced the
subject by reading a resolution of the Cham-

He was sitting with his wife Diane and
son Stephen at Town Hall Tuesday eve-
ning, March 11, following the election. The
building was also the sole polling place.
His opponent was sitting with his wife,
Toni, and his father-in-law, former five-
term town mayor Earl Harrington.
When asked what's next, Sewell's wife
quipped, "Get some rest."
Sewell said he hasn't made up his
mind yet What he'll do next, politically
speaking.
"It has been a learning experience,"
he said of his election campaign, "It has
been a process."
Howard will replace Travis Cummings,
who is running for a seat on the Board of
County Commissioners. That election will
be held on Aug. 26.
Cummings said, "I've served six years
here and it has prepared me for the BCC.


her opposing with-
drawal of water from
the St. Johns River.
an Later, Assistant
County Attorney Re-
S L becca Clayton brought
a proposal before the
Commission to adopt
a resolution joining
Rob Bradley St. Johns County in
an action against the
District. Specifically, the St. Johns County
Commission adopted a resolution initiating
Conflict Resolution procedures and filed it
with the District. In the resolution, the Com-
mission says it hopes to avoid costly litiga-
tion, but it does not rule that option out if
the Conflict Resolution fails. The board pro-


I've been learning the issues in our Dis-
trict 3."
He added he was "happy to see this
group" get a good person to take his seat
on the council.
The town's charter amendment refer-
endum, entitled, "Modification to quali-
fication procedures for Town Council
elections," spells out new candidate re-
quirements and fees.
It states, "Currently, a resident cannot
qualify for election'to the Town Council by
obtaining signatures unless he or she files
an affidavit of indigence.
"This amendment removes the require-
ment of filing an affidavit of indigence and
allows a resident to qualify by obtaining
100 signatures.
Following the tabulation taken from
the voting machines under the supervi-
sion of Chris Chambliss of the Clay County
Supervisor of Elections office, the town
council sat as the board of canvassers and
certified the election.
Howard will take his seat on April 1 at
the next Orange Park Town Council meet-


posed a date and time of 9:30 am. March
25 for a meetingato resolve thed dispute.
Vice Chairman Rob Bradley asked what
Jacksonville is doing and Clayton replied that
it was filing for an administrative hearing.
Chairman George Bush said he thought
the Board's instruction had been to join Jack-
sonville's action and asked why this alternate
proposal was coming before the Board.
Clayton explained that there were two
reasons. She said that Clay's joinder to
Jacksonville's action would be impractical
since it is specific to that city. However, the
County Attorney's Office is looking into the
possibility of filling intervener status. In the
meantime, the county attorney had received
notice of St. Johns action and now Clay had
only 10 days to join that action.


ing. He will be sworn in between now and
April 1, and a ceremonial swearing in will
take place on April 1.
The council later met in regular ses-
sion. It approved the Florida Striders
Track Club to run two races on Saturday,
April 12, starting at 8 a.m.
The Striders will be running from
Wells Road to River Road, Kinglsey Av-
enue and Astor Street, then back to River
Road and Wells Road.

In response to a query from Comiis-
sioner Do~g Conkey a to what the proposed
resolution would accomplish, County Attor-
ney Mark Scruby said this action is sepa-
rate and distinct from administrative law.
He said Clay County has no data of its own
as to the impact of withdrawal would be.
Scruby also said he is still looking at in-
tervener status.
Bradley asked rhetorically, "Where are
the feds? This is appropriate to the Clean
Water Act. I would like to see the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection involved. I
would like for staff to ask our friends why no
effort has been made to engage the feds."
The resolution was adopted 5-0.

Chambers says

it opposes

St. Johns plan

Dear Editor:

The Board of Directors for the Clay
County Chamber of Commerce unani-
mously passed a resolution to oppose the
withdrawal of millions of gallons of water
daily from the St. Johns River. The Cham-
ber strongly advocates the St. Johns River
Water Management District (SJRWMD)
to reconsider its plan which will put the
St. Johns River in peril. The health of the
river is of vital importance to the coun-
ties and municipalities that border the
river. Studies have not been completed
to determine the potential impacts to the
St. Johns River's ecological and biological
health or the impact on fisheries, shrimp-
ing and ecotourism activities.
Further withdrawals of surface water
from the St. Johns River by Issuing Con-
sumptive Use Permits or CUPs, may be a
short term solution with long term nega-
tive impacts for the river.
The SJRWMD has not initiated man-
datory water conversation programs for
the counties requesting the CUP. "The St.
Johns River represents a huge asset to
all of Florida. so it. is imperative that we
undertake a thorough scientific evalua-
tion tto.weigh the impacts of satisfying the
thirsts of unbridled growth in the central
Florida area," said Gregory A. Moore-
head, Chairman of the Board of Directors
for the Chamber. "To this end, the Clay
County Chamber of Commerce endorses a
wait and see approach to give the scien-
tific community a chance to assess these
impacts." The St. Johns River is one of
Florida's greatest natural resources and
one of only 14 rivers in the entire United
States that received prestigious nation-
al recognition as an American Heritage
River. The 310-mile long river is home to
3.5 million people, plants and wildlife.

Writer takes exception to
letter on Clay tax spending

Dear Editor:

Once again, Roy Lyons thinks he knows
best how to spend Clay County tax dollars
and wants to, "protect voters rights." He
states that people in Clay County are, "not
aware of what's going on."
How arrogant of him to insinuate that
Clay County citizens are so mindless!
Clay County taxpayers pay their commis-
sioners higher salaries than some, much
larger, counties: Miami Dade commis-
sioners receive only $6,000. Our neigh-
bor, Duval County, pays them little more
than $40,000, but Clay County commis-
sioners are paid almost $62,000.
The salary reduction Mr. Lyons "edu-
cates" us about will not even out among
seven commissioners what is being paid
to five, and will not "bring less cost." Tax-
payers will be paying for automatic pay
raises every year, benefits, insurance, re-
tirement, travel allowances, office space,
equipment, utilities, etc., all for part-time
positions.
Two extra, or "three commission-
ers per district," are not needed in Clay
County, and the tax dollars would be bet-
ter spent elsewhere, where it is needed.
Mr. Lyons also expostulates that, at
a recent forum, the Committee for Term

five years prior to his arrival.
S"We have put forward a plan for
sustainable drinking water in Magnolia
Point where D.E.P. has warned in 2001
of critical problems if not completed."
Buchanan also increased police of-
ficers salaries and encouraged the hiring
of both Police Chief Musco and Electric
Director Griffin.
"I have submitted a proposal for
the purchase of Augusta Savage Cultural
Center, a community center, where we
can get the children active with a youth
development program, night school pro-

must expand and strengthen as necessary
our capacities in Public Works and Elec-
tric Infrastructures so not to be run over,
but preserve the small town look and feel
by keeping zoning ordinances in check."
"Being the mayor for a year now and
balancing government with owning a busi-
ness has given me the experience to lead
this city into economic development with
manageable growth."

Candidate announcements



Newcomer Timberlake seeks GCS council seat


(Editor's note: The following candidate
announcement was provided by candidate
Mitch Timberlake.)
GREEN COVE SPRINGS A Green Cove
Springs political newcomer will bring new
ideas to the Green Cove Springs City Coun-
cil. Mitch Timberlake is running for Seat 2
on the City Council challenging incumbent
John Buchanan.
Voters will go to the polls April 1.
Timberlake will work to preserve the
charm that gives Green Cove Springs its
"small town feel" while capitalizing on growth
that is springing up all around the city.
"Our beautiful city is surrounded by
growth yet our citizens want to maintain


the small town charm
that makes Green
Cove Springs a great
,t- place to work, live
~and raise a family,"
S,*,'.. Timberlake said.-"My
fi'i "*' vision is to lever-
.7 age the growth while
Mitch Timberlake protecting our 'home
town' lifestyle that
makes our city unique. Having improved
business operations at global manufacturing
companies for three.decades, I bring a busi-
ness acumen that will help City Council run
more effectively and efficiently to achieve
these goals."
Timberlake is also concerned about


Green Cove Springs facing shrinking reve-
nues and believes its citizens do not need to
be obligated to bond programs unless these
programs are funding essential services.
"I have been listening to the concerns
.of our citizens and people tell me they want
a responsive City Council that is going to
manage their tax dollars wisely, be held ac-
countable and work to make our city the best
it can be and that excites me," said Timber-
lake. 'I know I can make a difference."
Another reason Timberlake entered
the City Council race is to work on lower-
ing the city's electric rates, which lie said
can be accomplished by "right-sizing" the
agreement between the City and the Florida
Power Management Agency or FMPA.


"Working together we can creatively
minimize our dependence on FMPA, while
providing quality electric service and reduc-
ing rates for everyone," he said.
Timberlake supports moving the Green
Cove Springs Police Department headquar-
ters allowing the city to free up valuable
riverfront property that can be converted to
revenue-generating commercial use.
"Having our own .police department not
only provides us security, but also provides
us with a sense of community," said Timber-
lake, who has lived in Clay County for more
than 45 years.
A 1974 graduate of the University of
Florida, Timberlake and wife Naomi have
four children and three grandchildren.


Riley in running for GCS Town Council Seat 1


(Editor's note: The following candi-
date announcement is from Joe Riley, a
candidate for Green Cove Springs City
Council, Seat 1)
I am a fifth generation Floridian hav-
ing grown up in a small town in South
Florida where I graduated high school
in 1986. Subsequently, I was a deputy
sheriff in Palm Beach County. In 1997 my
family and I moved to Jacksdnville while I
served in the U.S. Navy. In 2004 we relo-


cated to Green Cove
Springs where I am
currently employed
in the General Mo-
tors Division at the
Garber Auto Mall.
My family (wife,
Julie, and four chil-
dren) and I live in
Joe Riley the "heart" of the
city. Two teenage
sons attend Clay High and my two daugh-


ters attend Charles E. Bennett Elemen-
tary.
Since Green Cove Springs is where I
live, work and play, I am vitally interested
in the city and what the future may hold
for it. My goal is to maintain the small
town atmosphere and, at the same time,
encourage the city to become a more de-
sirable place for its citizens and others
who may visit or desire to live here.
Making the City of Green Cove Springs
a destination for business growth, the


tourism industry and a great place to
raise a family should be our goal. I intend
to work on moving the city in that direc-
tion, by using towns that have accom-
plished these goals as a guide.
As a council member I will be a sound-
ing-board for the citizens of this city.
I have a strong passion for Green Cove
Springs and will bring, with me, to the
Council a common sense approach.
Election day is April 1, 2008. I would
appreciate your vote.

do not need the protection of people who
only seek power and control over 'the com-
munity.
The citizens control, by vote, who
holds office and any proposals set before
them, but they have no control over the
manipulative tactics used to persuade
or dissuade them. They have no control
overthe Charter Review Committee (CRC)
whose members were hand-picked by the
commissioners. One district did not even
have a commissioner of its own choosing.
They have no control when special inter-
est groups donate large amounts of cam-
paign money to their committee, the last
time it was almost $30,000, yet nothing to
a committee for the citizens.
The CTLAC works long and hard to
protect the taxpayers yet have nothing to
gain and use their own money. It would
be sad, and most unfortunate, if no one
watched out for this community. The
CTLAC are the ones who are truly protect-

Dear Editor:
Thank you so much for your coverage
of the Festival in the Historic Triangle on
March 1.
The Clay County Historical Society
members take great pleasure in sponsor-
ing this event for our community. It is not
only educational, but it becomes an op-
portunity to meet many new residents of
the county who share our interest in local

If you didn't get to visit the museum
that day, you must come back some Sun-
day afternoon between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
when it is opened by volunteers (holidays

We'd like you to meet...



Carl Post, from cop to


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer

MIDDLEBURG Carl Post has worn so many
career hats in his one lifetime that it fairly
makes the head spin. Even though he says
he's "semi-retired," he's still wearing many
hats and adding more as he goes along.
Post was born in Lake Wales but came
with his family to Orange Park in 1946. He
attended Orange Park High School where
he played in the school band. However, he
transferred to Forrest High School in Jack-
sonville from which he graduated.
Following high school graduation, Post at-
tended FCCJ studying criminal justice. He is a
certified police officer, firefighter and correc-
tions officer. He served seven years with the
Clay County Sheriffs office and another three
with the Duval County Sheriffs Office.
It was while working as a firefighter at
Fleming Island Station Number 22 that he
was "accidentally" introduced to the magical
world of movies.
Early in 1989 Road Raiders with Bruce
Boxleiter and others was being filmed in
Clay County. One particular scene being
filmed at the old Thunderbolt drag strip in-
volved some pretty hefty pyrotechnics and
the producers arranged for a fire truck to
stand by. It was Post who arrived with the
truck. He was hooked.
The next location was at Reynolds on the
water and a different fire station was involved
but Post arranged to be there, anyway.
From there, Post signed on as an extra,
got involved with locations, special effects
and marine coordination.
When one of the film companies began
filming a commercial for Anderson Consult-
ing Company in Jacksonville, Post hired on
as marine coordinator ferrying people from
land to barge to downtown and back.


Later Post entered a partnership with
John Minsey in a studio at 352 Stowe Ave.
in Orange Park. The building was a 9,000
square foot stage, Post recalls.
.When Minsey left the partnership and
moved to California, Post opened Adventure
Films doing commercials and infomercials.
In 1989 the Clay County Chamber of
Commerce opened its film office and he
became involved with it. Post still consults
for the office and still does the Chamber's
various films.
Post recalled some of the films with
which he has been involved.
In 1995 the major production, G. I.
Jane, was filmed at Camp Blanding and the
old clay pits on 218. This film, Post says,

ACCREDITATION TEAM INVITES PUBLIC COMMENTS
REGARDING ORANGE PARK POLICE DEPARTMENT

A team of assessors from the commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation
(CFA) arrives in Orange Park on Tuesday, March 18, 2008, to examine all aspects of the Orange
Park Police Department's (OPPD) Policies and Procedures, management, operations and support
services, Chief James Boivin announced today.

To comply with the rigorous accreditation standards, the department must exhibit
to the Commission that is has complied with the 260 standards of professionalism set by the
Commission.
As part of the on-site assessment, the public is invited to offer comments to the as-
sessment team for review; providing in put and observations for the inspectors may be done
by calling (904)278-5700 on Wednesday, March 18th, 2008, between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Telephone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must specifically address OPPD's ability to
comply with the CFA standards. A copy of the standards is available at the CFA website www.
flaccreditation.org or from the OPPD's Public Information Officer at 278-3005

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written com-
ments about OPPD's ability to meet the standards of accreditation please write to the ad-
dress below or visit the Commission's web site at www.flaccreditation.org.

'The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc.
3504 Lake Lynda Drive, suite 380
Orlando, FL 32817

OPPD's Accreditation Program Manager is Sergeant G.A. Goble, who said the assess-
ment team is composed of police practitioners from other law enforcement agencies. The as-
sessors will review written materials, interview department employees and visit offices and
other places where compliance with the standards can be observed.

Once the Commission's assessors complete the review of OPPD, they report back to
the full Commission, which will then decide if the Orange Park Police Department is qualified
to receive accredited status. This status will last for three years. Verification by the team that
OPPD complies with Commission standards is part of the voluntary process to gain or maintain
accreditation a highly validation of law enforcement excellence and professionalism. OPPD's
status will be reviewed at the Commission's June 2008 meeting of the full board.

running for reelection and a challenger. The
two incumbents are Mike Kelter, Seat 1, and
John Buchanan, Seat 2. Challengers are Joe
Riley, Seat 1, and Mitch Timberlake, Seat 2.
The City Election is Tuesday, April 1.
Following brief opening comments by
each candidate, they responded, in rota-
tion, to questions from a previously pre-
pared list. Each candidate answered the
same question.
Riley stood in opposition to bond issues;
he said he feels other avenues should be
available. He also cited problems with the
City's Electric Utility and rates.
Timberlake, in reference to the Elec-
tric Utility, said the City needs to position
itself to move away from the present-sys-
tem. He also defended City Manager Don
Bowles as effective in reducing the budget
and getting grants.
Kelter, noting that he works for the
people and standing on his record for the
wise expenditure of taxpayer dollars, said,
in reference to employee evaluations, "This
is my time to be evaluated."
Buchanan said he is a local business-
owner and is active in the community.
Responding to comments regarding the
Electric Utility, he said he had voted in favor
of the city's withdrawal from the Florida
Municipal Power Association (FMPA). He
also said that splitting off parts of the City's
system is "very, very serious." He said Vero
Beach had tried it and it cost them millions
in litigation.
All the candidates saw growth as both
an opportunity and a challenge. They agreed
that, if it is to be beneficial, growth must be
managed.
The candidates also agreed that an-
nexation can be a good thing but suggested
it be done carefully.
They parted ways on the electrical issue.
Riley noted that the City is already com-
mitted to getting out of FMPA and said that,
come September they need to look into get-
ting out of parts of the system.
Kelter took the opposite tack. "I support.
keeping the electric system," he said. He
said that, if someone hit a golf ball through
your window and you were getting cold, you
had three options; sell the house, whine to
the mortgage holder or fix it. He said the
electrical system is broken but can be fixed
and produce good revenue for the City.
Buchanan said the Electric Utility pays
for much of the Police Department and
makes a substantial contribution to the
City's General Fund. He said that when he
discussed Green Cove's thoughts about sell-
ing the system with officials in other cities,
they were dumfounded and asked, "Why
would you want to sell your utility?"
Timberlake noted that the electrical
issue was one of the clearest differences
between the candidates. He said the City
should exercise its rights under the contract
with FMPA and take portions of the system
and move them to lower cost providers.
The electrical issue returned in answers
to other questions.
The candidates were asked, in the face
of mandated tax cuts, how would you make
up for the shortfall in revenue?
Don't sell off valuable utilities Kelter
said; find new revenue sources.
Buchanan said the City needs to cut
spending. Timberlake said that, if there is
a shortfall, the City needs to "cut fat." Riley
noted that no one really knows how City
will be affected but said spending and "fat"
should be cut. Both Kelter and Buchanan
stressed they are experienced councilmen;
the challengers dismissed experience as an
asset.

AVATAR artists have fun at what they do


By Bob Henderson
Staff Writer
GREEN COVE SPRINGS Brian Martin,
along with Dan Froehlich and Mike Quer-
ing, have fun at what they do but, when
they are working, they are not playing a
game.
They are artists in every sense of the
word. Their product, sometimes whimsi-
cal, sometimes not, is always designed
to identify the customer; who he is, how
he sees himself and how he wants to be
seen. What is their product? They produce
murals, vinyl signs, embroidery, T-shirts,
silk screen, air brushing, pin striping, logo
design, custom graphics and vehicle let-
tering and graphics.
A visit to the AVATAR shop at the cor-
ner of Orange Avenue and Palmer Street
in Green Cove Springs is a visit to a world
where color is king. But right up there
with color is a universe of design. One
wall is covered with brilliant posters dis-
playing the talents of the trio.
A rack of T-shirts is accompanied by
more in a glass case. Martin says some
T-shirts have been created for the City of
Green Cove Springs.
The building they rent from Rusty
Chaney is, itself, a representation AVA-
TAR of who they are; driving south on
Orange Avenue it is virtually impossible
to miss the huge mural that covers the
entire side wall.
AVATAR has been in its present lo-
cation in Green Cove Springs just three
months and already they feel at home in
,, the community. Martin moved the shop
from Jacksonville after he was shot during
an attempted robbery and spent a lengthy
period in the hospital.
Martin says they frequently put in 15-
hour days.
Quering agreed. "If we're not here,
we're usually installing signs."
Froehlich is a five-year resident of
Green Cove Springs. Though they now live
in Jacksonville, Martin and Quering both
are looking for homes in the area.
"We love Green Cove Springs," Froe-
hlich says.


Dan Froehlich, Brian Martin and Mike Quering cheese it up in front of the mural on th

munity," Martin said. "We like to spend ing asked, "If you were to

Street legal golf carts sold in Reynolds Park


Clay Today staff
GREEN COVE SPRINGS A company
that specializes in selling street-legal golf
carts is now open in Reynolds Park.
American eCars offers carts that can
be ridden in subdivisions or on streets
were speed limits do not exceed 35 mph,
said sales manager Michael Ziolko.
The business, which opened in a for-
mer Reynolds Park Yacht Center building
at the corner of State Road 16 and Martin
Avenue, is one of the few golf car dealers
in Northeast Florida to handle neighbor-
hood electric vehicles (NEV).
American eCars is locally owned and


operated by Joe Taylor.
Large developments like Fleming Island,
Eagle Harbor or Oakleaf Plantation have
amenities like shopping or doctors offices
close by, making the NEVs a good alterna-
tive to a standard automobile, Ziolko said.
"These sporty, good-looking, and fun
vehicles are eco-friendly with zero emis-
sions, low maintenance (no messy oil
changes, expensive car repairs, and noisy
engines) no gas required, and only cost
cents a day to charge and drive," the com-
pany said in a press release.
Some of the many options include air
conditioning, CD player, Sirius satellite
stereo, full enclosures, windshields, seat-


belts,ground effects and chrome rims.
The company is currently rending two
2008 models for use in downtown St. Au-
gustine.
American eCars also offers rental,

carts, NEV's and scooters.
The company offers a variety of
electric vehicles that come in two-four-
six-eight-eleven and fourteen passenger
models including heavy duty and extend-
ed passenger transport vehicles as well.
American eCars are a franchise dealer for
Star Cars and Tomberlin brands.
"We feel like we're in a pretty good
spot because they are talking about turn-
ing this into a resort," Ziolko said. "If they
do we'll be in a good spot."
Reynolds Park's private owners previ-
ously announced tentative plans to turn
the property now dominated by marine-
related industries into a residential devel-
opment. No timetable has been announced
for when the project might begin.
The selected route of the proposed
Outer Beltway, which would connect In-
terstate 10 to 1-95 by going through Clay
and St. Johns counties, also would run
near the business, Ziolko said.
The dealership is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. Saturday for sales. For information

Bridge troll

part of

car dealer

conspiracy
GREEN COVE SPRINGS- As it
turns out, there's more to the
story of the troll that's been
harassing people trying to cross
the bridge to Green Cove
Springs. Word is out that a group
of car dealers, all competitors of
the Garber AutoMall, held a pri-
vate meeting to discuss tactics to
get their market share back from
Garber. Ever since Garber built
their giant new auto mall on high-
way 17, just 5 miles south of
Orange Park, people are heading
there for a better selection and
lower prices. One of the Garber's
competitors came up with the
idea of hiring an evil troll to stop
people from crossing the bridge.
Jenny Barnett of Orange Park, a
recent customer of Garber, said
the troll jumped over the guard
rail and ran into the middle of the
street as she was approaching the
bridge. She thought the troll was
actually kind of a cute little thing
trying to be a bad guy. While the
troll initially acted tough and
wouldn't move, he quickly
jumped out of the way as she
punched the gas pedal of her Ford
F-150. "That little purple-haired
critter isn't going to stop me from
getting a negotiation free deal at
Garber" Jenny said. She got to
Garber, no problem, and said she
saved a fortune compared to deal-
ers selling the same brands.


The Garber Auto Mall is fast
becoming known for their All-
American Test Drive where con-
sumers can test drive all the
American truck brands side-by-
side. Plus at Garber customers
have the convenience of dealing
with one salesperson for all the
brands. The Garber Auto Mall is
indeed the one-stop-shop for
American made vehicles. Jim
McGraw of Fleming Island
recently bought a Chevy truck
from the Auto Mall. When we
talked to Jim he said he knew he
wanted the Chevy but it really
was nice to test drive the Ford and
Dodge at the same location. No
running from dealer to dealer.
This was the best way to buy!
While car dealers will always be
competing for sales, we have to
say the troll was something we've
never seen before. The tactic
looks like it's backfiring for the
dealers. People seem to get a kick
out of the troll, even though he
tries to annoy them and stop them
from crossing the bridge to Green
Cove Springs.
Both Garber and the troll are
gaining popularity.

S. y J.eep iO- s MERCURY
Nothing compares to Garber's One-Stop-Shop experience for all the American brands. Work with one salesperson
and drive all the brands you want in one location. Then decide what's right for you. There's no better way to buy.

Town approves wastewater project


By Jean Abell
Contributor
PENNEY FARMS Some time ago
the Town of Penney Farms decided to
connect to the county wastewater sys-
tem rather than build its own plant.
However, a lot of work has to be done
in Penney Farms in order to connect
with the county.
The engineering firm of Mittauer.
and Associates made the feasibility
study for the town. It examined the
17 bids received from contractors to
construct the wastewater system. On
Thursday, Feb. 28, town engineer Joe
Mittauer recommended to the Town
Council that the bid from Royal Amer-
ican Construction Company Inc., for
$4.6 million, be accepted.
Of the 17 bids, five had been
under $5 million. Royal American's
references were found good, as well
as their licenses for underground and EnL
general contractors. Mittauer assured
the Town Council, "We are in budget.
What you are doing now is the best proj-
ect you could do."
He commended Town Manager Mar-
tina Kohler for the remarkable success of
her efforts in obtaining grants from the
state and other sources, including Rein-
hold Corp.
The Town Council unanimously autho-

rized the mayor to award the contract to
Royal American to construct the wastewa-
ter collection and transmission facilities.
Mittauer had the package of docu-
ments all ready to send to Tallahassee
and hoped to have their approval within a
week. "They really have been very good,"
he said.
The Town Manager added, "They al-


ready have it verbally. We
Needed data from the bid to
get the money. They know
the name of the company,
the amount, and many other
facts."
Mittauer had already se-
cured the necessary permits.
Lane Fowler, general su-
perintendent of Royal Ameri-
can, assured the Council that
'"I' they planned to start con-
-: struction before the end of
March. They will start at the
S north end, on County Road
218, in order to have the
new Shadowlawn Elementary
^ School connected before it
opens in June. "Ninety days?
.'l I think I can do it in half that
Timee" he said.
Council Member Kathryn
BYJEANABELL Lockwood pointed out, "When
Farms Town people in the neighborhood
start to see people moving
around, then they'll believe
this is going to happen."
Putting in the local sewers will be the
last part of the project. After connecting
at the north end, the next phase will start
at the sewer plant with the master lift
station. There will be two more collection
systems, at the east and west (New Hope)
ends of the project.

Extortion
FROM PAGE 1A

tions of forcible sexual abuse and coer-
cion of juvenile and adult males in New
York, is being held in the Clay County Jail
on $325,000 bond on charges of sexual
battery and false imprisonment in addi-
tion to extortion, the report says.
The report says Filancia began threat-
ening the life of the local victim and his
girlfriend in August. The victim succumbed
to the threats and allowed Filancia to take
several photographs of him in the nude
and in his underwear. Filancia kept the
photographs and threatened to distribute
them to the victim's parents and friends
and post them on the Internet if the victim
didn't perform sexual favors and acts of
bondage, the report says.
In January, Filancia bound the victim
in chains and forced him to perform oral
sex, the report says.
The victim then went back.to Filan-
cia on March 10 and pleaded with him to
stop the threats and turn over the photo-
graphs, but Filancia continued to threaten
him, the report says.
After the meeting detectives arrested
Filancia outside his apartment in the
6200 block of West Shore Road B, the re-
port says. He was later charged with pos-
session of a controlled substance when
detectives allegedly found in the car a
small amount of white powder that later

Felancia has an extensive criminal his-
tory in Clay County dating back to 2002,
with arrests for resisting arrest with vio-
lence, criminal use of an ID, selling alco-
hol without a license, worthless checks
and several traffic-related charges, ac-
cording to Clay County arrest records.
Currently on probation for a fraud
conviction. Felancia will also be charged
with violating the probation and will held
in jail without bond, Jett said.
Some of Filancia's victims in New York
state were as young as 15, but be was
often able a "to plea out to keep the young
victims from having to testify," said Jett,
a 27-year CCSO veteran.
Lt. Charlie Charlie Sharman said the
investigation is still on-going, limiting how
much police could release.
"There are certain things that, because
of the prosecution, because of victims out
there we're trying to protect, that we'll try


not to'get into," Sharmin said.
He expected to be able to say more in
a week or two.
"We just want to be sure the other vic-
tims out there will feel comfortable com-
ing forward, so we have to be careful how


we say things not to intimidate or make
them fearful to come forward," Sharmin
said. "If they need help, we have to get
them the help they need."

Community Theater play is two plays in one


By Lydia Flizen
Correspondent
ORANGE PARK- Attend "Play On!", the Or-
ange Park Community Theater's spring of-
fering, and you get two plays for the price of
one. It's a toss-up as to which is funnier, the
ostensibly serious murder mystery "Murder
Most Foul," or the cast trying to get their
act together with only four days of rehearsal
left. Both provided plenty of laugh lines that
had the whole audience roaring.
Play On!, written by Rick Abbot, uti-
lizes an unusual device. "It's a play within
a play," director John Pope said. "A com-
munity theatre is rehearsing a play written
by a local playwright. The cast is frustrated
by the fact that the author keeps bringing
in rewrites."
The not-so-professional playwright,
played by Megan Padgett, seems bent on
driving the cast nuts with her script chang-
es. The Cast gets into the act of changing
things around when certain wording lends
itself to modification.
Tension mounts as the rehearsals spiral
into confusion, and cast members take out
their frustration in hilarious ways. The be-
leaguered director, played by Susan Pope,
stays at wits end while the stage man-
ager, played by Korina L. Barber, is busy
both solving and creating problems. The
cast of the murder mystery, played by Mi-
chael Smithgall, Annabelle Howard, Kristen

missing cues and trading jibes. The script
manager, Sara Green, tries valiantly to keep
things running smoothly, but omitted pages
and dropped lines create chaos. Is it pos-
sible they will be ready to perform this train


wreck of a play on opening night?
"Fortunately I have a very talented real
cast to play these characters who have dif-
ficulty getting into their parts because they
are frustrated by the rewrites," the director
said. "The challenge for the actors is that
they may do the same scene several times

Thomas Hogans Memorial Gym dedication is March 15


Special to Clay Today
GREEN COVE SPRINGS The City of
Green Cove Springs will dedicate its
newly renovated gym at 1107 Martin Lu-
ther King Jr. Blvd. on Saturday, March
15, at 10 a.m.
The gym will be dedicated to and
named "The Thomas Hogans Memorial
Gymnasium" in honor of "Coach" Thomas
Hogans, a Clay County educator and life-
long community leader.
Hogans studied at Florida A&M Uni-
versity (FAMU) in Tallahassee, receiving
both Bachelors and Masters degrees
in physical education. While attending
Florida A&M, Hogans was an outstand-
ing basketball player who was inducted
into the Sports Hall of Fame at FAMU.
Hogans taught History and Physical
Education at Green Cove Springs Middle
School and Clay High School, and was the
only-coach to serve in the gymnasium at
the old Dunbar High School. He was in-
strumental in winning multiple district
and state basketball championships for

The renovated gymnasium in Green Cove Springs
will be dedicated to Coach Thomas Hogans.


both boys and girls teams during his era
as a coach. Hogans was an inspiration to
young people,.many of them now commu-
nity leaders themselves.
Hogans was a loving husband to Jet-
tie, his wife of 51 years, a devoted and
.supportive father to his children, Velda,
Sonya, Lakay, and Tony (Anthony), and
"Papa" to a host of beautiful grandchil-
dren. He loved Green Cove Springs and
the community in which he and his family
lived. Hogans was one of the first suc-
cessful black businessmen in Green Cove
Springs and was a true entrepreneur own-
ing several businesses including a barber-
shop, gift shop, and laundromat.
Hogans also loved his church and his
church family. He was a member of the
First African Missionary Baptist Church
in Green Cove Springs for more than 50
years, rarely missing a Sunday service.
He considered everyone in Green Cove
Springs his family.
Hogans was a true gentleman on and
off the basketball court. He was a lover of
poetry, classical music, history and the art


of debating. In fact, Hogans was known as
the "Great Debater." He spent his entire
adult life sharing his love of these things
with students and friends.
Hogans passed away in September
but his legacy will be with those that
he inspired and those whose lives he
touched throughout his life. The Green
Cove Springs City Council voted to honor
Hogans by naming one of his favorite
spots, the newly renovated Thomas Ho-
gans Memorial Gymnasium, in his honor.
He touched more lives in that very gym
than he probably ever realized. He was
an inspiration to so many.
The City of Green Cove Springs in-
vites everyone to attend the dedication
ceremony which will include the recog-
nition of the Hogans family, a tribute to
Coach Hogans, a poetry reading, scrip-
ture and prayer, alumni recognition and
an official ribbon cutting. Afterwards,
everyone is invited to have refresh-
ments and join in the "Old Timer's"
games and youth activities in the newly
renovated gym.

'Tea and Tour' shows OP's historical roots


By Leo King
Staff Writer
ORANGE.PARK This town is only about
three-and-a-half square miles, but it is
filled with historical landmarks. That be-
came evident on Saturday, March 8 when
the Historical Society of Orange Park pre-
sented a "Tea and Tour." Clay Transit buses
roamed the town starting at Clarke House
in celebration of the Clay County sesqui-
centennial, 1858-2008..


Carrie Clarke's (1885-1979) headstone marks the place where she rests. Her husband, William F. Clarke (1884-1943), rests at left.


African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church
at 504 McIntosh Ave., as is Moosehaven,
between Park Avenue and River Road.
The original St. James Church, built by
the town's African-American community


ca. 1879, was built on land Benedict con-
veyed to the church trustees.
Moosehaven, a retirement home for
members of the Loyal order of Moose, ac-
quired eight acres (and an option for 18


more) along St. Johns River, and was dedi-
cated in October 1922. Its front gates are
on Park Avenue. The tall water tower went
up in 1937.

Ladies in dresses from earlier periods in Orange
Park history wereat Clarke -House for a "Tea
and Tour." Cindy Cheatwood, left, wore a dress
patterned after mid-1860s styling while Cynthia
Stone wore a more up-to-date dress, ca.1900.


Washington G. Benedict founded the
town in 1878, and.two of its early leaders
were William Clarke and his wife, Carrie.
Their house, at 1039 Kingsley Avenue, is
now part of a park owned by the town.
Back in 1803, Zephaniah Kingsley
bought 1,000 acres from Mrs. Rebecca Pin-
gree and started Laurel Grove Plantation.
The buses and tours will return on
March 22, for "Carrie Clarke Day."
The free tours last weekend were a sell-
out, so-to-speak, with two buses roaming
the town and all 14 seats filled in each. The
historians even made an extra run because
the demand was so high.
Rich Valliere, a historical society mem-
ber, was a tour guide.
The first stop on the tour was Magnolia
Cemetery, literally across the street from
Clarke House. It was created ca. 1866, and
many of the town's early leaders are buried
there, including the Clarkes.
He explained, "Benedict and Alpheus P.
Blake gave the town seven acres ca. 1886
for the cemetery. Several former mayors
are also buried there." So are some Civil
War veterans.
The tour continued to several other
sites, including The River House, at 2137
Astor St. It is apparently the oldest struc-
ture in the town, built around 1850. Record
keeping in years past wasn't so good, so the
historians can only make educated guesses
when the structures were built.
"The structure was moved from Hibernia
(on Fleming Island) to the Club Continental
estate in 1978," Valliere told the 14 riders
aboard Bus No. 37. Driver Helga Mohaned
tried to keep the bumps to a minimum.
Club Continental came along around
1921, and its "Mira Rio" was built by Caleb
Johnson of Milwaukee, Wis.
Other significant places visited included
the Morgan-Sigman House at 1200 Plain-
field Avenue, built ca. 1878. The Rev. W. H.
Helffrich built it along with four sons from
plans they brought from Pennsylvania.
Other important sites are the St, James

$5,000 as some of the most out-of-place
items found during the Great American
Cleanup, among many other unusual
items. D'Alessio reported finding a re-

some volunteers have even found "No
Dumping" signs.
"We find a lot of different tires," said
Karrie Huntley, who volunteers in Clay
County. Some of the more unusual items.
such as a washing machine have been
collected as well. "I think the strangest
thing we found was a telephone booth
that was collected at the Lake Shore Boat
Ramp," said Huntley. This year, the Lake
Shore Boat Ramp will serve again as one
of three local collection points for volun-
teers participating in the Great American
Cleanup.
To kick off the national cleanup ef-
fort in Clay County, Keep Clay Beautiful
has scheduled its 13th annual St. Johns
River Celebration for March 15. Since the

munity-based effort, volunteers work to
address issues specific to their area. For


Clay and neighboring counties,
the greatest focus is placed on
cleaning and maintaining the
St. Johns River and its outly-
ing tributaries.
"We cover a lot of creeks,"
said Taana Jolley, executive di-
rector ot Keep Clay Beautiful
Inc. In addition to cleaning up
rivers and streams, Keep Clay
Beautiful encourages cleaning
up of roadways and adjacent
ditches which all feed into
the local waterways. "We try
to clear up ditches along the
roadways, because it flows to a
water source which will even-
tually end up in the river."

assessment The problem is that trash

eburg. ing their way into local bodies
of water because of the ele-
ments. Wind and rainwater both affect how
litter scatter throughout the community.


"We do make an impact,".said Jol-
ley regarding previous cleanup efforts in
Clay County. According to the Clay County
Environmental Services, over 6,074 vol-
unteers have successfully removed more
than 182,441 pounds of trash and debris
from the waterways of Clay Coqnty over
the past 12 years.
In 2007, 348 volunteers, many of
whom where students taking advantage
of the double community service hours
benefit, showed up and collected 8,080
pounds of debris under adverse climate
conditions. Jolley expects to see a greater
turnout this year.
"My goals are always high; I would
like to see it back up to 550 or 600," said
Jolley. County officials and others con-
cerned with the overall success of Keep
Clay Beautiful want to observe two trends
over the years.
First, a steady increase of partici-
pants and volunteers are desired to reflect
a growing awareness of environmental
concerns throughout the community. Sec-
ond, county officials want to see a steady
decrease in the pounds of waste collected
to reflect a successful cleanup of the river
and tributaries. The most productive year
for Keep Clay Beautiful was in 1999, when
636 volunteers collected over 26,000
pounds of trash and debris.

A legal challenge is expected either way
AHCA decides.
Leaving OPMC ends the third stay in
the Jacksonville area for Mayo and his
wife. He plans to spend time with his fam-
ily before starting the new job.
"It's something I've never done be-
fore," he said. "I always just went from
one job to another and started immedi-
ately, but I want to take some time off to
spend with my wife and daughter.
"Then I am looking forward to new
challenges. If I can be half as successful
there in such a short short time as I was
here in OP then I will consider it a suc-
cess," he said.
While under Mayo's leadership, Or-
ange Park Medical Center opened new fa-
cilities, enhanced existing patient areas,
upgraded their technology, won several
awards and recognition, significantly in-
creased their patient satisfaction scores,
and filled key leadership positions by re-
cruiting highly trained specialists from
across the nation.
"We're grateful for the great work Mi-
chael oversaw during his time with us,"
said Jim Wood, HCA market president and
Memorial Hospital CEO. "His leadership
was instrumental in ensuring Orange Park
Medical Center's future success."
Last May, the hospital's North Tower
opened, creating 22 private rooms and
new operating suites.
.The Emergency Department also re-
ceived an upgrade with new waiting rooms
and an enhanced admitting area and, just
this month,
Express Care opened to handle non-
life-threatening patient injuries and ill-
ness needs. State-of-the-art technology
advancements, including a new R2 CAD


Mammography system, a Picture Archive
Communication system for the Radiology
Department, and an eMAR Patient Scan-
ning and Barcoding system, were also
implemented over the past year.
"The hospital's recent technology en-
hancements have been very impressive,"
adds Dr. Deevid Miller, practicing physi-
cian and Board of Trustee moderator.
While Mayo has been at the helm, the
*hospital also received the area's only five-
star rating for clinical excellence in ma-
ternity care by HealthGrades, the nation's
leading independent healthcare ratings
company.
"We're extremely proud of this accom-
plishment, as we were the only hospital
in the Jacksonville area to receive this
award," says hospital Board of Trustee
Virginia Hall.
"The entire board appreciated Michael
Mayo's management during this exciting
period."
Despite Mayo's departure, new con-
struction projects are in queue and addi-
tional technology upgrades are planned at
the hospital.
"While we're happy for the new op-
portunity Michael has before him," says
Board of Trustee member Greg Moore-
head, "we're also thrilled with the possi-
bilities ahead for our hospital."
Mayo said he is grateful at how quickly
the community embraced him and he will
take with him several good memories, es-
pecially the 2007 opening of the hospital's
new patient tower and renovated emer-
gency room.
"The theme was honor the past and
embrace the future ...." he said. "That
will stand out in my mind as a real special
point because it really emphasized what
this hospital is all about."

sented a.request to the Commission for the
release of.Historical Commission funds for
several projects. With little discussion, the
Board approved:
Up to $450 for the Middleburg-Clay
Hill Library's participation in the Sesquicen-
tennial Celebration;
$750 for the Railroad Festival in
Green Cove Springs;
$140 for a Sesquicentennial banner;
and
Up to $1,1750 blinds and stage cur-
tains for Middleburg Civic Center.
The rub came when the board was
asked for $2,500 and $1,600 for the Wings
of Dreams air show at Keystone Heights Air-
port. Stone told the Board that, although it
is a new event, it has already drawn great
support.
Bush was not happy, "I have a problem
with the (Historical) Commission doing proj-
ects without consulting the BCC. It is bad
public policy for the BCC to fund projects
afterward."
Bob Oehl, executive director of Wings of
Dreams, stepped forward to tell the Board
that the event had featured World War II
fighter aces and was approved by the Ameri-
can Fighter Aces Association. There were
bomber crews, as well.
Dottie Baker said that approval of the
request could send a strong message of BCC
support for the historical project.
Mayor Mary Lou Hildreth said that her
community really values the air show. She
said a WWII museum is being planned.
Bush asked, "How much did Keystone
Heights contribute to this event?"
Bob Cannady answered the question.
"No money," he said, "but a lot in people
and support. "
Bush continued his contention that
events such as this required prehpproval of
the BCC if it expected to receive BCC fund-
ing.
The request was approved 3-2 with Bush
and Bradley voting against.
In other action, the BCC:
Approved a request to surplus several
animals for auction;
Announced that a traffic light at US17
and Creighton Road will be installed in
June;
Appointed 11 members to the newly
created Affordable Housing Advisory Com-
mittee; and
Discussed a meeting of Clay County,
Camp Blanding and citizens regarding a buf-
fer zone required for Blanding. It will be dis-
cussed further at the March 25 meeting.

Senior's blast propels Keystone over Ridgeview

By Horace Davis
Staff writer
ORANGE PARK When Hall of Fame man-
ager Earl Weaver patrolled the baselines
for the Baltimore Orioles for a couple of
decades beginning in 1968, he had a pen-
chant for the dramatic three-run homer
to lift his teams to victories and one of his
famous quotes was "The key to winning
baseball games is pitching, fundamentals,
and three run homers."
Well, on Monday at Ridgeview High .: ,f
School, Keystone head coach Alan Mat-
tox had his chance to rekindle Weaver's
fondness for the big blast as he watched

Freshman's no-hitter keeps Lady Eagles soaring


By Horace Davis
Sports Writer
ORANGE PARK The string of no-hitters
in Clay County continued this week as
Fleming Island freshman Kaira Robison
pitched a five-inning no-hitter against an
overmatched Lee Lady Generals team to
the tune of a 10-0 victory for the Lady
Eagles, the no-no gave the county three
no-hitters in three weeks as Robison feat
matches Clay High's Crystal Chesser who
no-hit Nease and Tori Harvey who actually
threw a perfect game against Atlantic.
Although no-hitters may be rare for
some pitchers this freshman hurler was
quick to note that this one was not her
first, "I also threw another one a couple of
years ago for my travel ball team."
Robison struck out ten Generals on
the way said she had one thought as the
innings kept going, "I just kept telling my-
self stay.calm and one inning'at a time."
The same approach this season has
been true foi Eagles head coach Heather
Schlictman-who has thrown her share of
no-hitters during her illustrious career at
Orange Park and the University of Arkan-
sas and stated, "Right now it's one game at
a time," said the third year head coach.
With the win Fleming Island improved
to 8-2 (3-1) in District 3-5A and the fast
start has Schlictman somewhat surprised,
"We still have a young team with only two
seniors and we have several new players
but the team chemistry of the girls has
really been impressive."
Schlictman has seen her squad has
put together 2 four-game win streaks in
between their two losses and is hitting

with #1 starter Alex Kieffer to hold oppo-
nents to a .180 batting average.
"Alex is our top starter but in some
games we give Kaira a chance and today
she was good," added Schlictman.


Robison improved her won loss record
to 3-0 this season and Kieffer currently
is 5-2 allowing just 12 earned runs, and
at the plate Jessica Miner and Maddison
Kieffer. is leading the team with .393 and
.394 averages.

"Thus far we've had two bad games
but each time the team has been able to
bounce back, as I mentioned the chemis-
try is great, the girls pull for one anoth-
er and it translates onto the field," said
Schlictman.

Key hit in sixth inning sparks Lady Panthers comeback win


Randy Lefko
Correspondent

ORANGE PARK Ridgeview High School's
girls' softball team has the big bats of
Jessica Bobango and Nicole Ankrom with
averages above .350, but it was a bases
loaded single by Brittany Moss (.067) that
gave Ridgeview a come-from-behind 3-2
district win over Middleburg on Tuesday
afternoon at home.
"It was good to see other members of
the team step up and make the big play,"
said Panther coach Tom Frawley, who
has his team at 4-9 overall and 3-4 in
district play. "Our big bats did not put
up any numbers so we had a couple of
key, well-placed hits to score the runs
we needed."
Up 2-0 after the second inning on a
two-run in-the-park home run by Erinr
Brand that sailed over the Ridgeview
outfield, Middleburg tried to slow down
the Panther counterattack, but fielding
errors gave the Panthers bases loaded
opportunities twice in the fifth and sixth
innings.
"We are very young and very inex-
perienced," said Middleburg coach Mike
Harrison after the game. "The kids are
developing as the season progresses,
but the junior high kids we have are


Ridgeview's Brittany Moss delivers the winning
single with the bases loaded in the sixth inning
to give the Lady Panthers the 3-2 district win over
visiting Middleburg.


Middleburg shortstop Brianna Little stretches out unsuccessfully
for Ridgeview hit during Tuesday's game at Ridgeview.


feeling the sting of high school
ball."
With pitcher Kami Reinecke
manning the mound, the Pan-
thers allowed just one baser-
unner in the final three innings
with Reinecke shutting down
the Broncos with two flyouts
and a strikeout to end the game.
Reinecke holds a 1.56 earned
runs average with 75 innings
pitched this season and 60
strikeouts.
"Kami has been playing
great from the mound, "said
Frawley. "We get some field
play and execute at the plate
and we could, be one of the
spoilers for the district. We
have had all close, one or two
run games with all of our dis-
trict rivals."
The Panther runs came
in the fifth with Erin Coletti
drove a hard shot to center that
scored Nikole Doolittle who got
on base on an error. Then Co-
letti scored from second on a
drive to center by Leigh Freitag
to close the game.
With the loss the Broncos
fell to 1-12 for the year.

his senior Colton Crews step into the
box with the bases loaded in the fourth
inning and did one better then Weaver
liked, the senior first baseman drilled
a 2-2 fastball over the fence to turn
a 4-2 deficit into a two run lead and
eventual 7-4 win for the Indians.
"It really felt good to be put in that
position and come through with the
homerun," said-Crews. "I have been
hitting fairly well this season and I
knew it felt really good coming off the
bat." added Crews.
Ridgeview was able to build a 4-2
lead behind the bats of Justin Geerdes,
Tyler Bass and Eugene Leckich, each
had two singles apiece with Bass and
Geerdes adding RBI's.
Bass not only supplied some of-
fense but he also took the mound and
gave coach Bob Adamson three innings
of one-run ball, he scattered four hits
while also striking out four but trou-
ble began to brew in the 4th.
During the fateful 4th inning, Pan-
ther Scott Williamson relieved Bass
on the mound and the good fortunes
turned bad as Williamson allowed five


runs on four walks and the grand slam
by Crews as Keystone took a 6-4 lead
on the hit.
"This was a good win for us," said
Mattox. "Things have been getting bet-
ter lately, the guys are playing really
hard and it seems like every night it's a
different guy getting the big hit today
it was Colton's and he came through."
The Keystone coach was not only
happy about the big hit by Crews but
he also pointed to the job he received
on the mound from starter Andrew Se-
cules and junior Clayton Mosely.
"That was a great pitching job
by both of those guys, when our bats
weren't going early they kept us in the
game.
Secules and Mosely limited Rid-
geview to nine hits but they were
all singles and they only walked one
batter between them and when they.
needed it the defense came up big as
freshman outfielder Ryan Latner made
a diving catch to save a few runs.
With the win Keystone improved
to 5-3 and Mattox hopes this could be
a signature victory during the course
of the year stating, "This could be a
momentum builder, it definitely was a
timely hit and we hope it can give us
momentum going into latter half of the
season and into the districts."

By Horace Davis
Sports Writer
ORANGE PARK Most players and fans
of girl's basketball probably would agree
that the season ended too early as none
of our county teams made it out of district
play into the regional pool. Even though
that was the case we did get a chance to
see some good team and individual per-
formances during the season, like the
Orange Park Lady Raiders and new head -
coach Mandi Matrichardi started the sea-
son undefeated through nine games before
losing, they eventually ended the season
with an area's best record of 21-4.


Individual performances included
Clay High junior Mariah Masalin going
over the 1,000- point mark this season,
Fleming Island's Brittany Lewis signing
a division one scholarship with Virginia
Tech and Ridgeview junior Angelica Pen-
nington finishing in third place at the
three-point shootout in Lakeland during
the state finals.

First team
Mariah Masalin, JR. Clay Aver-
aged a tad over 17 points per game to

- Led the Lady Eagles in scoring and re-
bounding in consecutive years, will take
6-foot-2-inch frame and scoring prowess
to the ACC.
Katherine Zander, FR. Orange Park
- Not often does a freshman lead a team
in scoring and rebounding but this one did
for the Lady Raiders.
Angelica Pennington, JR. Ridgeview
- Top scorer and team leader on both
ends of the floor, placed third at state-
wide three-point contest.
Stephanie Kindel, SR Orange Park

Basketball charity game, fun and competition for a cause


By Horace Davis
Sports Writer


ORANGE PARK For the past several
years Lakeside Junior High basketball
coach Joey Williams tried to find a way to
honor outgoing seniors who played bas-
ketball for area county teams and may not
get the chance to play at the college level,
additionally Williams who works with au-
tistic children was hoping to find a way
that it would benefit the less fortunate
ones he works with.
After formulating the thought in
his head the idea reached paper and
the result was the first annual charity
basketball game that would benefit the
autistic children in his charge, "The
outcome of the game was a total suc-
cess," said Williams. "All the money
raised is going to be utilized to start
our project which is to build a new

playground for autistic 794."
As far as the games went, Fleming
Island's Brittany Lewis (six points) and
Orange Park's Ashley Wilkins (five) led
the West team over the East 45-43,
the East was led by Chelsea Williams
(OP), Olivia Drew (FI) and Rachel Har-
din (OP) with nine and eight points re-
spectively.
In boys' action a sizzling 49-point per-
formance by Raiders Clarence Tillman led


the way for the East in a high-scoring 85-

Clay County Chamber of Commerce Opposes


Water Withdrawals from St. Johns River


The Board of Directors for the Clay
County Chamber of Commerce unani-
mously passed a resolution to oppose the
withdrawal of millions of gallons of water
daily from the St. Johns River. The Cham-
ber strongly advocates the St. Johns River
Water Management District (SJRWMD) to
reconsider its plan which will put the St.
Johns River in peril. The health of the
river is of vital importance to the coun-
ties and municipalities that border the
river. Studies have not been completed
to determine the potential impacts to the
St. Johns River's ecological and biological
health or the impact on fisheries, shrimp-
ing and ecotourism activities.
The SJRWMD has the responsibility
to plan for the use of the waters of the
St. Johns River in ways that will not ad-
versely affect the river's health and ecol-
ogy. The SJRWMD should engage outside
agencies such as private consultants and
universities engaged in similar scientific
research to participate in the study so as
to provide analysis and open discussion of
the effects of proposed water withdrawals.
The results of such study should be.wide-
ly distributed to the public prior to any
permits being issued by the SJRWMD for
withdrawal of water from the rivers and
give public and private interests sufficient
time to review and respond to findings.
The SJRWMD should base the approval of
any Consumptive Use Permit (CUP) hav-
ing the St. Johns River as the source of
supply on the following criteria:
The long term impact of the request
and potential future withdrawals on the
St. Johns River, and not solely on the pro-
_-..... .......posed permitted use..itself .. .


Consideration that once approved, a
consumptive use permit for water drawn
from the river will be very difficult for
Central Florida permit holder user to
discontinue use of this water resource.
This will be especially true in times of
drought when this water resource may be
needed the most. as evidenced by the cur-
rent controversy regarding utilization of
waters from the Chattahoochee River be-
tween the State of Georgia and the Florida
Panhandle.

SJRWNMD Lawn and
Landscape Irrigation Rule
Lain and landscape irrigation can
account for more than 50 percent of
total water use at residential and com-
mercial locations. The purpose of ihe
rule is to ensure lawn and landscape
irrigation efficiency Ito reduce o\eraii
water demand.
Lawn and landscape irrigation is al-
lotwed before 10 a.m. or after -1 p.m..
with a few exceptions. This requirement
has been in effect since 1991. Beginning

vation efforts when considering approving
the St. Johns River as a source of water.
Further withdrawals of surface water
from the St. Johns River by Issuing Con-
sumptive Use Permits or CUPs, may be a
short term solution with long term nega-
tive impacts for the river. The SJRWMD
has not initiated mandatory water con-
versation programs for the counties re-
questing the CUP. "The St. Johns River
represents a huge asset to all of Florida,
so it is imperative that we undertake a
thorough scientific evaluation to weigh the
impacts of satisfying the thirsts of unbri-


When Carpe DM relocated to Flor-
ida in 2003, we quickly implemented
the single best tactic to maximize
awareness among local business deci-
sion makers. As a full-service adver-
tising agency, you might suspect that
involved a glossy print campaign or a
targeted direct mail effort. Actually, it
was as simple as joining and partici-
pating in the Clay County Chamber of
Commerce.
By attending the after-hours events
and council meetings, I quickly expanded
Carpe DM's network of key prospects
and vendor resources. After speaking
at Chamber-sponsored seminars and
lunches, business from several Chamber
members (including the Chamber them-
selves) poured in.' While our creative
ideas and results-producing programs
keep local clients coming back, the
Chamber's opportunities provided the
initial trial. Without doubt, our business
grew as a direct result of our participa-
tion with the Clay Chamber.
In addition, the Chamber has pro-
vided several outstanding resources
that have enabled Carpe DM to expand.
Strong vendor partners (including Cham-
ber members C & H Printing, Compass
Bank, Unicorn Web Development, and


dled growth in the central Florida area,
said Gregory A. Moorehead, Chairman of
the Board of Directors for the Chamber.
"To this end, the Clay County Chamber of
Commerce endorses a wait and see ap-
proach to give the scientific community
a chance to assess these impacts." The
St. Johns River is one of Florida's great-
est natural resources and one of only 14
rivers in the entire-United States that
received prestigious national recognition
as an American Heritage River. The 310
mile long river is home to 3.5 million peo-
ple, plants and wildlife.

President's Message


Small businesses are vital to Clay's


success


Small business-
es are the heart and
soul of the Chamber ..
and local economic
development. These
businesses cre-
ate thousands of
jobs and introduce
unique products KellJoielliberg
and services into
the marketplace each year. The entre-
preneurs who open small businesses are
risk takers and wealth builders. They are
willing to sacrifice their time, talent and
treasure to achieve their dreams of a bet-
ter life for themselves and their families.
Starting a small business isn't as easy
as renting a retail space and selling a


product or service. There are several
steps that must be taken to ensure a bril-
liant idea turns into a sustainable and
profitable enterprise.
The Chamber's Business Develop-
ment Advisory Board explores some of
the challenges that face small businesses
and the services that are being offered by
Chamber member businesses and other
organizations to support this important
economic sector.
All businesses are confronted with
conditions that are sometimes beyond
their control. The increasing cost of fuel,
high recruitment costs, property and rental
costs, ability to borrow money at reason-
able rates, rising levels of government
bureaucracy and competition place many


Chamber member businesses in a chal-
lenging position.
The Chamber serves as an important
business partner for its members by pro-
moting, supporting and encouraging the
development of the small business sec-
tor in the Clay County area. The Busi-
ness Development Advisory Board, led by
Marge Hutton, Jacksonville Orthopaedic
Institute, develop programs and events
that offer opportunities for businesses to
promote their products and services to
other Chamber members as well as the
community as a whole.
Opportunities that are coming up in
the next several months include the Home
and Garden Expo presented by Granite
Transformations at the Orange Park Mall
this Saturday, March 15th. More than 30
businesses of all sizes are exhibiting and
the public is encouraged to visit the mall
to see the tremendous variety of products
and services. Coming in May is the An-
nual Chamber Golf Tournament at Eagle
Landing at Oakleaf Plantation on May 1st
and the Military Appreciation Luncheon
presented by VyStar Credit Union on May
15th. Give Greg Voss a call at 264-7503
to participate in and/or sponsor any of the
Chamber activities.


In February, the Chamber took our an-
nual trip to Tallahassee to visit with our
legislators, elected officials and other state
agency officials. While in Tallahassee,
State Senators Steven Wise and Evelyn
Lynn presented us with a proclamation
to recognize Clay County's 150th Anniver-
sary. The proclamation was signed by all
members of our legislative delegation. One
theme that was discussed throughout our
visits was there is no money in Tallahassee
except for essential services. It is impor-
tant to fully fund education and trans-
portation. The next eight weeks will be
interesting as we watch the development
of the 2008/09 budget. The unfortunate
news was that one of the first activities the
legislators had to deal with had to do with
cutting the current budget. One thing for
sure is with all of the budget cuts whether
at the state or local level we will continue
to receive services; however, the level of
service we see today will not be the level
of service we have a year from now. Get
engaged in the discussion regarding the
quality of life here in Clay County.
Until next month, remember It's Good
Business to do Business with Chamber
Members. Join us as we are "Promoting
Your Success".

Promoting a Vibrant Economy


By: Danita Andrews,
Vice President ofl' Eonomic DevIlopmllent

Our trips to
Tallahassee are
extremely \orlth-
while, providing in-
sights to county and
statewide economic
development initia- .~j
ties and creating
the opportunity to DanitaAndrews
interact directly
with fellow practitioners, legislators and
various agency representatives on criti-
cal issues important to growing our local
economy. For example, Kellie Jo and I
attended the Enterprise Florida board
meeting and stakeholder's council meet-
ings at the end of January where we met
Dr. Dale Brill, the new Director of the
Governor's Office of Tourism, Trade and
Economic Development (OTTED). Brill
addressed the Enterprise Florida stake-
holders noting that the role of OTTED is a
service organization and an agency that
helps cut the red tape and also serves


as a cheerleader in articulating the eco-
nomic development framework for the
state. In addition, he commented that
OTTED needs to be a better story teller
in continuing to spread the enthusiasm
and success of Enterprise Florida and
its statewide partners (local Economic
Development Offices and Chambers of
Commerce). Dr. Brill introduced the
Governor's Blueprint for Florida's In-
novation Economy and the Six Economic
"Drivers" that provide focus on the com-
mon framework to unify state-wide eco-
nomic development planning and action:

1. Sustainable Growth preserving
quality of life for all Floridians and future
generations.
2. Competitive Business Climate
- favoring low tax structure and reducing
constraints.
3. Multi-modal Infrastructure en-
hancing safe and efficient space, sea as
well as land-based transportation.
4. Research & Development creating
new products and processes in our uni-
versities/institutes.


Six Essential Drivers of Florida's Innovation Economy

(OTTED) briefed Chamber members on February 21 during the annual legislative trip to Tallahassee.

Traveling back to Tallahassee this
past month afforded the opportunity for
our Clay County legislative team to meet
with Dr. Brill at the Capitol, where he
shared the Blueprint for Florida's Inno-

down the silos of government that exist
and eliminate "cookie cutter" approaches
so that all agencies find their role in eco-
nomic development without getting in the
way. He referred specifically to the abili-
ty to bring together the review of Florida's
growth management policies and encour-
age collaboration.
Long term the vision includes pur-
suing innovation and productivity as the
foundation for global competitiveness and
economic prosperity within Florida's busi-
ness climate to promote attraction and
retention of business, to create a low tax
structure, to review regulatory areas to
better align state policy with the unique
features and needs of urban and rural set-
tings, and to encourage development and
improvement of transportation systems
that facilitate mobility and help grow
Florida's economy. Moreover, the vision
incorporates adoption of the "evolve or
die" concept and modeling what business-
es have done to innovate their products,
services or methodologies to increase
productivity, drive competitiveness and
increase the ability to innovate. In addi-
tion, the call is being made for innovation
and productivity from existing businesses
of all sizes and well as newcomers and
startups. "Sole proprietors are the bread
and butter of the state." With more small
business startups occurring in the state
of Florida, we need to adopt "economic
gardening" and foster a balance at the
local level between "outside in" recruit-
ment efforts with "inside out" nurturing
of home grown businesses. This means
providing access to capital, best practices
and encouraging angel investment in addi-
tion to benchmarking business incubation.
Accordingly, there is a focus on research
and development to help create new prod-
ucts and processes through university and
private sector institutes dedicated to in-
novation such as Scripps -Torrey Pines,
Max Planck and key education institu-
tions. They attract private sector invest-
ment, generate new companies, and help
to cultivate new, high-wage, high-skill
jobs. Development of world class talent
rounds out the blueprint initiative to help
Florida compete nationally and globally.
The plan fosters early childhood educa-
tion and encourages career education for
adults and young adults to receive the
training and skills needed to support suc-
cessful industries critical to-sustaining
and growing Florida's economy. In line
with this, the turnaround of the space in-
dustry provides a unique opportunity for

After Hours at the New Holiday Inn

On February 12, the new Holiday
Inn Hotel & Suites hosted its first Clay
Chamber of Commerce event, the Febru-
ary After-Hours. The lobby, restaurant,
bar and conversation area filled up quickly.
Fabulous hors d'ouvres like jumbo shrimp
and beef kabobs were served, as well as
a bountiful buffet. We toured their spa-.
cious guest rooms, suites, spa, fitness and
boardroom suites as well as 2000 square
feet of banquet space with state of the art
technology including large 52" wall mount-
ed flat screen televisions at each end and
LCD projectors mounted to the ceiling. The
134 rooms are a welcome addition to Clay

1,440 overnight accommodations.

well as guest room accommodations. Come

Meet Your TDC: Ms. Denise Buzzy
The Clay County Tourist Development
Council (TDC) is an advisory group that re-
ports and makes recommendations to the
Board of County Commissioners (BCC) as
set up through Florida Statute 125.0104.
The hotel tax on overnight accommoda-
tions is often called a "bed tax". The TDC
makes recommendations as to the use of
the bed tax. The BCC has the option to
accept, deny or change the recommenda-
tion. The nine member TDC is made up
of a County Commissioner (chair), 2 city
representatives, 2 or 3 business repre-
sentatives and up to 4 hoteliers. They
hear requests for promotional funding
and other tourism related issues. These
volunteers from the hospitality industry,
city government and related businesses
give their time and experience to evalu-
ate how tourism dollars are spent. We
would like to thank our TDC members and
let you know who they are.
This month, since we were just at the
Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites, it seemed per-
fectly logical to introduce Denise Buzzy
to you. Many of you probably knew Ms.
Buzzy when she owned Buzzy's Incredible
Edibles. Denise is the Catering & Sales
Manager at our newest hotel. She brings
a wealth of experience from the restau-
rant side of tourism. Since visitors don't
usually have a kitchen while traveling, ob-
viously, they often go out to eat. Food &
beverage, pleasing the customer and great
service are all a part of the restaurant
business. Thank you Denise for repre-
senting our restaurateurs in tourism, and

a great idea to educate business owners

Leadership Clay Class of 2008 Overnight Retreat


The Leadership Clay Class of 2008
had a great time during Orientation and
the Overnight Retreat, sponsored by
AT&T. Classmates met at Camp Bland-
ing Joint Training Center on February
7th and were treated to dinner and an
incredible presentation on Leadership
Diversity by Ray Jorgensen of Jorgensen
Learning Center. Classmates were able
to get to know each other through-inter-
active exercises during the presentation.
Margie Thomas from Compass Bank said
that Ray's presentation was a great ice
breaker and that the group talked about it


later that night. She also mentioned that
everyone would be using the skills they
learned both at home
and work.
The next day, the
class ventured into
the woods and par-
ticipated in a Leader- LEAD
ship Reaction course. C
During each exercise,
leaders were given a problem that re-
quired both physical and mental thinking
to complete the task as a group. There
were six exercises that became more diffi-


El
"LA


cult each time the class proceeded. After
lunch at the Chow Hall, the group took to
the woods once more
to complete a land
Navigation exercise.
After an hour, facilita-
tor Mike Lee set out to
RSHIP find a missing class-
-y mate, Darren Dailey
from the Jacksonville
Children's Chorus. You can imagine the
jokes he suffered from his teammates. It
was all in good fun.
The class concluded the day by shar-
ing what they learned from the last two
days. Nicole Williams from Old Navy
said that even though there are different
personalities within the group, the exer-


cises were a great way to bond with her
classmates.
The Leadership Clay program gives
participants the closest possible look at
all phases of Clay County. The program's
goal is to encourage potential and pres-
ent community leaders the opportunity
to become more familiar with current
issues and develop solutions for future
challenges.

session, not only at the state level, but
the local government as well," said Doug
Conkey, Clay County Commissioner. "I
greatly appreciate the hard work of our
local delegation working on behalf of Clay
County."
The Chamber scheduled appointments
with 37 representatives and senators. The
teams were led by Greg Moorehead, The-
resa Smith, Randy Knepper and Marge
Hutton. Many issues were discussed with
the lawmakers. Some of the highlights
were the First Coast Outer Beltway, af-
fordable housing, property tax and insur-
ance, Florida Ready to Work program,
Medicaid Reform, constitutional amend-
ments and withdrawal of water from the


St. Johns River.
In addition to meeting with lawmak-
ers, Chamber members met with Charles
Bronson, Commissioner of Agriculture;
Monesia T. Brown, Director of the Agency
for Workforce Innovation; Clint Furhman,
Deputy Secretary for Communication
and Legislative Affairs for the Agency for
Healthcare Administration; Dr. Dale Brill,
Director of the Office of Tourism, Trade
and Economic Development and Doug
Wheeler, Vice President of Grassroots
Advocacy and Political Action Committee
Development for the Florida Chamber.

legislative proposals, please visit www.my-
florida.gov or www.floridachamber.com.


Charles Bronson, State of Florida Commissioner or Agriculture discussed the "Farm to Fuel" plan for
alternative fuels, including biodiesel, bioethanol and ethanol.

the state and will require a commitment to
keep the phenomenal engineering talents
that exist here. Dr. Brill pointed out that
much of the blueprint follows Enterprise
Florida's strategic plan, which is indus-
try led and not a government idea. These
two plans share core organizational val-
ues, common themes and vision to ensure
that Florida continues to have a growing
vibrant economy.


OTTED was created in 1996 by the
Legislature, within the Executive Office of
the Governor, to assist the Governor, Lieu-
tenant Governor, and Legislature to for-
mulate policies and strategies designed to
provide economic opportunities for all Flo-
ridians. Economic development programs
are implemented through Enterprise Flor-
ida's public/private partnerships for which
OTTED provides direct oversight.

Students at Fleming Island High School
are taking steps towards better health
with a little help from a Jacksonville busi-
ness. Laura Kirk, a Fleming Island High
School teacher, contacted ScholarshipEx-
perts.com last month, hoping the company
could help her with some school supplies:
paper, pens, pencils, Post-It notes, pe-
dometers and heart rate monitors. While
the company expected the common items,
the pedometers and heart rate monitors
were an unusual request.
"Fortunately, we have an employee
who works with Susan G. Komen for the
Cure North Florida," said Lori Grand-
staff, co-founder of ScholarshipExperts.
com, "and she was able to secure more
than enough pedometers for the entire
class."The company was able to provide
Kirk with all the items on her list, except
one. "I'm still working on the heart rate
monitors," said Tamara Krause, marketing
representative for ScholarshipExperts.
com. "I have connections with several
health groups and I'm hoping to get them
to the school soon." Kirk was happy to
receive the donated items, "I am so grate-
ful. It will all be put to good use."
ScholarshipExperts.com, a free online
scholarship search service, partnered
with Kirk during last year's New Teacher
Expo, which seeks to pair businesses
with educators, is designed to help teach-
ers cover the cost of school items needed
throughout the year.


North Area Business Council Donates

$600 to Three Area Clay County Schools


The North Area Business Council of
the Clay County Chamber of Commerce
presented a $200 check to three sepa-
rate Clay County School Media Centers
to help defray the .cost of new books. All
of the media specialists were very happy
to learn of the donation. At Grove Park


Elementary, Media Specialist Opal Thelps
had a big smile when she learned of the
gift. W.E. Cherry's Media Specialist Mar-
sha Foster also was enthused to receive
the check. The final stop on the donation
list was S. Bryan Jennings Elementary.
Linda Woolschlager immediately had


a use for the funds: replenish the book
stock. The North Area Business Council
members were proud to use the funds in
the educational arena, as there is a con-
tinuing need for supplies and books to as-


sist in the education of our Clay County
children. Frank Houle, Council Treasurer
presented the checks and Ambassador
Shirley Houle was the designated photog-
rapher on the trip.
