SPORTS CLAY TODAY By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Although county commissioners took no action, one issue of discussion drew a lot of passionate com ments at this weeks regular meeting. For months, the county has been plan ning to hold its Second Annual Veterans Appreciation Day event on April 14 at the Thrasher Horne Center. However, the is sue drew re from commissioners when county Purchasing Director Karen Thomas came before the board March 13 with a request for immediate payment from the Thrasher Horne. Thomas said the Center requires a de posit within 30 days of the event and since it is within 30 days of April 14, ofcials there are now asking for advance payment, which is the Centers penalty for not get ting the deposit paid in a month. The total cost, which would be the sum of this advance payment, hovers at just over $8,000 despite the countys usual free pass for use of the facility. Each year the county pays St. Johns River State College $125,000 out of the countys Tourism Development Council hotel-motel tax funds.

In the late spring and summer, the town wore the trappings of a rural, rambunctious frontier settlement. Then, come late September and early October, a vast wave of Northeastern and international tourists began to arrive at the local resort hotels and boarding houses and the town tried to don a fancy mantle of civilization at least in the area adjacent to the sulfur spring where the grand Clarendon and other large hotels clustered. Conditions in the Northeast were not much better, just different. But the middle class and wealthy tourists were more easily able to avoid the heavy industrial gaging air pollution and appalling sanitary conditions in the tenement areas of their big cities. In Green Cove Springs, it was a clash of cultures in the dusty, dirty streets and the women of the Village Improvement Association waded right into the fray, cleaned up the town and organized women across the state into a force to be reck oned with. The conditions a block or two away from the spring were truly daunting. Hogs snoozed in the streets waking only to break down fences and root through gardens. Cattle wandered at will occasion ally dragging some hapless housewifes clothesline and wet wash behind. Many residents and merchants simply dumped trash and garbage in the street or nearby vacant lots. When the pile got too high, theyd set a match to it. Some swore the scent could curl nose hairs. All this was accompanied by a sym phony of aromas from rotting vegetation in trash heaps, poorly kept chicken coops and the mine eld of cow patties and horse dung dotting the streets. Eau de human waste hung in the air from poorly maintained privies. Weekends were worse. Come Saturday afternoon, rowdy cowhands and timber workers with slicked down hair and cash in their pockets rode into town ready to party. Most straggled home before In 1933, members of the Green Cove Springs Village Improvement Association gathered to mark the ftieth anniversary of their founding the rst womens club in the state of Florida. Women band together to clean up the town SEE MEMORIES, 22 county can use the THC Conference Cen ter for county events and various awards ceremonies. County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos said that this event is slightly different than previous freebies the county has received in that this time they are us ing more of the Thrasher Horne Center, in cluding the main performance stage area. I understand we need to pay custodial and those other things because we are us ing the whole facility, she said. The only thing we should be paying for is the main stage, not conference center. Kopelousos said she would try to set a meeting with representatives from the col lege as soon as possible to renegotiate the contract for the event, as well as inquiring why they were pushing for advance pay ment for an event hosted by the county government. Members of the commission were not happy with the request. Commissioner Feathers from page 1 Gayward Hendry spoke rst on the unex pectedly high price tag for the rental. The problem I have with that is the cost, especially with the nature of the event, he said. For that kind of money, Id just as soon have it at Spring Park for four or ve hundred dollars, or any other vacant eld where theres some shade. Ill support this but I think thats way out of line as far as expenditure of county money. Commissioner Mike Cella also spoke against the suggestion that the county should have to submit an advance payment for a rental they have received at a much steeper discount in the past. I have a problem with being told by Thrasher Horne that we have to pay in full, its not like were going to pick up and move out of the county and they wont be able to nd us, he said. I think even asking for the check is a stones throw too far at this point for this particular board. When it was his time to speak, Chair Gavin Rollins introduced the idea of taking the sum of the rental out of the Tourist De velopment Council money that will be given to SJRSC in next years budget, as well as rethinking their agreement with the col lege entirely. I view this as kind of a slap in the face honestly, theyre trying to nickel and dime us on a veterans event and we already give them $125,000 a year in TDC funding, Rollins said. Commissioner Wayne Bolla immedi ately spoke up in favor of the idea. Bolla decided to take Rollins idea a step further and move forward with a formal propos al to pay the advance but remember the amount when doling out tourism money next year. I dont want to throw the baby out with the bath water here, we want the event to be a stellar event, we want it to come off, but I also support Commissioner Rol lins suggestion that if they charge us the $8,000, we subtract it off their money for next year, he said. I think thats a good measured response to this and Ill put that in the form of a motion. Before he could even nish the sen tence, the motion was seconded by Hendry and Rollins announced the motion and sec ond before Cella spoke up. Before we vote, discussion would be a good thing for a cooling off period, Cella said. We do have a contractual agreement with the Thrasher Horne Center that says we have to pay them that, so you cant not do that. After brief discussion the commission decided to table discussion on the topic until Kopelousos could renegotiate the amount for the rental with the college, only paying what she feels would be fair consid ering the TDC contract and past usage of the facility. However, the commission was able to determine that the contract that re quires them to pay the $125,000 expires this year which would allow the BCC to rethink that number when they begin plan ning the next years budget. How convenient, Rollins said. The commissions next meeting is March 27.

By Dominic Calabro FloridaPolitics.com F loridas economy, although robust, de pends heavily on tourism, real estate development and nancial industries. As Floridas economy rebounded from the Great Recession a few years ago, em ployment in low-paying industries such as tourism has grown at a faster rate than employment growth in higher-paying in dustries. While any em ployment growth is good, we must be careful not to build our economy on the backs of Floridians with lower-paying jobs. Florida ofcials continue to look for ways to stimulate economic growth and development and diversify the states economy. This has been made more chal lenging with the recent reduction in eco nomic development incentive funding that, for years, was used to attract businesses to Florida and to create new higher-paying jobs. As a result, the focus has shifted from attracting new businesses to Florida to growing existing Florida businesses from within. This is important since, overall, business and job growth in Florida is oc curring in small businesses, those with fewer than 100 employees. Given the decision to grow Floridas economy from within, two existing pro grams have proven themselves worthy of the continued investment of state funds. The rst is GrowFL, which works with second-stage companies to help them connect with resources that will allow them to make better strategic decisions and have a larger positive impact on our economy. A second-stage company is a company that has survived the start-up phase and is now focused on growth, ex pansion and creating new jobs. Growing second-stage companies will be critical going forward because they are now responsible for more than 30 percent of Florida jobs and more than one-third of Floridas sales. Over the next decade, GrowFL is pro jected to create more than 43,000 highpaying jobs and generate more than $4.6 billion in additional personal income for Floridians. One would think the absence of a per sonal income tax, affordable land and la bor, streamlined permitting processes and a host of other pro-business tax policies and resources would attract manufactur ing companies to Florida in droves, but they dont. 4 CLAY TODAY March 15, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Opinions Dominic Calabro Word of the Week is a feature that aims to help readers boost their vocabu lary in a meaningful way that has practi cal application.

Federal law prohibits guns on school campuses, but it doesnt always apply to citizens with concealed carry permits. As a result of this loop hole, 18 states already allow adults to carry handguns on to school property with prior authoriza tion from the school, and 10 states allow concealed carry in schools as standard prac tice. The debate is building, but we havent heard the opinion of a crucial group of people who have the right to be heard the teachers. The Florida Education Association (the teachers and education workers labor union in the state of Florida) recently called an emergency meeting of its ex ecutive cabinet to take a formal stand against arming teachers. They even acknowledged that their position was taken without hearing from the teach ers. After publising their decision, they recently sent out a statewide email re questing teacher feedback, in it stating, You are on the frontlines every day educating Floridas 2.8 million public school students, and too often your voice is not heard in the debates. What are Teachers Saying? Im a teacher in Florida. I took the question to my school, a suburban ju nior high, with approximately 1,100 students and 70 faculty members. In addition to the lifetime educators, our teachers were previously police of cers, social workers, ofce workers, college students, stay-at-home parents and a strong representation of military veterans. Im proud of my school one where we are fortunate to have supportive ad ministrators who have fostered a com munity of cooperation and support. To them I posed the question: How do you feel about arming teachers? The recurrent comment was yes, allow guns in the school. But the di viding line was between allowing any one who wants to carry to do so, or only arming the qualied. The majority felt that the qualied are our veterans and ex-cops. Noted a math teacher, the average teacher would panic in that situation. The former military has been trained for years to handle situations of chaos. But I also recognized an underlying current. Most do not want that respon sibility. I do not have nor want the training required to take that kind of responsibility, remarked one teacher. Teaching is my profession. I did not sign up to carry a gun and be a police ofcer or a soldier, said another. Make no mistake, these teachers are speaking of the burden of carrying a gun, not the responsibility of defend ing our students. We already hold that responsibility. Our schools provide children break fast and lunch. Some schools in our SEE ARMED, 5

We pro vide students clothing, hygiene products, and school supplies, absorbing the cost ourselves. We are not required to do these activities, but good teachers do. Teaching is much like missionary work; we must meet the basic need before we can begin to address, in our case, the edu cational requirement. But when it comes to physically protecting our students, we can only take a passive stance. One teacher who is retired military noted, I can only escape as quickly as my slowest student, or I can hide with them. We are willing to ght for our students, and we acknowledge that may involve risk ing our lives. Most of us care for these kids as if they were our children. This is why so many of us refer to them as our kids. One female teacher replied, if its between a killer and my students, the killer will have a ght on their hands. Your public school teachers care that much, and it is an awe some responsibility. One professional sum marized it well This r esponsibility has nothing to do with being a teacher or a job in any other eld for that matter. This re sponsibility comes with citizenship. A sci ence teacher added, The union does not speak for all teachers. I wont do it for the money, I do it for your child. Should arming teachers be the rst choice? May I challenge you to consider, there is a more profound need than quickly arm ing faculty. Our leaders have a responsi bility to schools to put into place stronger security measures and training. Arming faculty should be the nal step. Our school is fenced in, and our doors now remain locked at all times. However, redirected funding removed our resource ofcer. Before arming teachers, we would like to see the ofcers return or have armed security and our security cameras linked with a local police monitoring station. Teachers can be given access to panic but tons if they encounter a threat. I would rather have a false alarm than an acciden tal shooting. Unfortunately, funding is always the el ephant in the room when it comes to edu cation, and it is cheaper to defer the deci sions to the states and districts and allow teachers to carry at their own expense. One social studies teacher addressed the question of money. Im not keen on the idea of arming teachers voluntarily unless it is a paid position. Im sorry Mr. President, teachers would be performing two fully paid positions, ed ucator and armed guard. It will likely take more than a cursory bonus. The Federal government must be more proactive on this legislation, at the very least providing a more precise denition of arming teach ers and closing some of the loopholes. It may come to the point of necessity to arm qualied personnel on school cam puses, but before we reach this point, we should proceed with forethought and cau tion. One teacher summed up nicely, It is unfortunate that our society has come to this, but the reality is that it has. Rather than reacting in the emotion of the latest attack on our community, we should make responsible controlled de cisions. We have to do all that we can to ensure our safety before we arm teach ers. Your public school teachers are will ing to bear arms for your children, but we want to ensure the best qualied, properly trained and compensated professionals are doing the job. We have the right to carry to protect ourselves, then why should we not have the same mindset to get something done to protect our future?

6 CLAY TODAY March 15, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfntb r b b rnn nbbr n brfbb By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer FLEMING ISLAND The pews of a Fleming Island church were lled with friends and families last week who said goodbye to U.S. Navy Lieutenant James A. Mazzuchell dur ing a funeral mass. During the 10 a.m. funeral mass held March 9 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, over 200 people sang hymns such as How Great Thou Art and I Am the Bread of Life. Guests listened to Mazzuchellis uncle share memories of his late nephew and heard his grandfather share verses from Ecclesiastes before heading to the Jacksonville National Cemetery in a formal funeral procession. Despite our feelings of sadness, it was a beautiful funeral held for an incredible person, Bobbi de Cordova-Hanks, a friend of Mazzuchellis mother, said. On Feb. 24, 32-year-old Mazzuchelli who grew up in Clay County died from injuries obtained during a military heli copter accident at Camp Pendleton, Cali fornia. Mazzuchelli was a Navy ight sur geon, assigned to the Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 267, a part of Marine Aircraft Group 39, Third Marine Aircraft Wing. Because of this, and his service as a member of the military, Gov. Rick Scott, who attended the funeral, asked that all U.S. and Florida ags be own at half-staff at the Orange Park Town Hall, Duval Coun ty Courthouse and State Capitol to honor Mazzuchellis service. Scott was not available for comment the day of the funeral but the governor put out a statement reecting on the life of Mazzuchelli and the importance of military members in our Florida communities. As a ight surgeon, Lt. Mazzuchelli courageously served our country alongside his fellow Navy sailors and our U.S. Marine Corps, and his legacy will long be honored and remembered by his loved ones and by the State of Florida, read the statement. As a Navy veteran myself, I urge all the military members to take this opportuni ty to thank the military members in their communities as we continue to pray for Lt. Mazzuchellis family during this difcult time. During the funeral, Mazzuchelli was remembered by fellow military members, including the U.S. Marines he last served with, as they presented the gifts, a Catho lic tradition that usually sees friends and Navy ight surgeon given proper goodbye family bringing the bread and wine to be used for communion to the priest. Captain Clint Neiss and Captain David Axel of the Marines presented the gifts. Mazzuchellis cousin, Brianna Anthony, and his grandfa ther, Dennis Guzzo, read prayers and vers es, and lead the congregation in hymns, all in honor of their fallen family member. Mazzuchellis Uncle, Scott Guzzo, though, was tasked with writing a eulogy. Battling tears, Guzzo remembered Maz zuchelli as the man he was not only at home but in the eld as well. He gave more than he received and it was never about the recognition, but more about the task at hand, Guzzo said. Al though we lost a son, a brother, a neph ew, a cousin, a godfather, a grandson or a friend, we didnt lose the memories and what he stood for, so when times get tough, just ask yourself, What would James do?

As part of a nationwide program in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity more than 10,000 high school and college students participate each year in what is known as an Alternative Spring Break. An alternative spring break is a volunteer experience offered to students who would rather spend their week-long break helping a community rather than lounging poolside with a drink in hand. For these six South ern Utah students, alternative spring break means building two houses in the heart of Green Cove Springs on North Street. These wonderful people are build ing two houses that will one day be called home by two families in our program, said Carolyn Edwards, Clay County Habitat for Humanity executive director. We dont have any families quite ready for a home, which unfortunately means these students wont be here for the dedication of the house to a family, but we are amazed and thankful for their generosity and unselsh ness regardless. Not only does their generosity shine through in the work theyre doing, but also the circumstances surrounding their time here in the area. Each of the students had to pay an alternative spring break program fee, which is roughly $350, and their trav eling expenses to get here. Fortunately, Habitat for Humanity is providing a place for them to sleep with help from Waste Not, Want Not in the food and drinks de partment. For some of these students, this is their From Utah to Clay County rst time participating in an alternative spring break. Others are veterans of this community service-centered vacation, like senior nursing student Karen Snyder. For the past three years, Snyder has volun teered in Mexico building houses and other activities. The biggest difference between her work in Mexico and here in Clay Coun ty? Building regulations. I went down to Mexico each year for three years and built houses and they dont really have building regulations so it was a little sketchy, Snyder said, laughing. This job here has different challenges in that its more of a hassle getting tools and supplies you need, but I prefer it. Whether shes building a house in Mex ico or Green Cove Springs, Snyder is fo cused on helping others while discovering her purpose, something she likens to her generation as a whole. I think our generation is a lot about trying to nd meaning and purpose in life, and I think that you can have all the vaca tions you want, but to have this organiza tion that this area has and all these dif ferent personalities working together, you cant just chance upon that, Snyder said.

Fleet, AICP, Development Services Director Danielle J. Judd, City Manager City of Green Cove Springs 321 Walnut Street Green Cove Springs, FL 32043 This is an honor and an opportunity to have someone train you one-on-one on how to use a power tool, and to do so with such respect, all in an effort to get the same job done. Its just very fullling. For some of the other students, like junior sociology major Christine St. Clair, this is their rst alternative spring break. St. Clair nds herself in a unique position on this trip in that the work shes doing all week ties almost directly in what she wants to do one day. Im a sociology major with a minor in psychology and family so what Im do ing here denitely ties in to that, St. Clair said. I think this gives me good experience for what I want to do in the future, which is social work. Despite the work their doing during spring break, St. Clair still sees this trip as a bit of a vacation. Im excited because this is still a new area to me and I still get to have that ex perience, but also, I just really enjoy doing things that I know are going to help some one else in the future, St. Clair said. The groups leader, Kenny Kirker, a ju nior biology major, hopes that his group takes what they learn this week building two homes for Habitat for Humanity and apply it back home in their Utah communi Habitat from page xx ties. A big part of it for us, on the leader ship side, is focusing on an issue, get ting out of our comfort zone and going to something new, and then talking about and reecting on how that relates to our own community back home and how we can bring what we learned here back home, Kirker said. When youre in a foreign, new environment, the differences kind of make you realize the similarities in our different communities and thats a huge component of the alternative spring break philosophy. Some of the ways Kirker and his team of alternative spring breakers plan to bring what they learn this week to home is through their universitys many out reach programs such as the food pantry, free swimming lessons for kids, their Days for Girls programs which provide sanitary products to girls in need and more. Kirker said the university has 12 different pro grams. Despite being the team leader, Kirker thinks its important to remember how in tegral everyone on the team is to the proj ect at hand. I really feel like everyone here is a leader in their own rights, Kirker said. Although I do a lot of the communication with Habitat for Humanity, once we are here and working, its very much a team ef fort and thats the only way things like this can ever get done. By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS By the end of this month, Clay Port President Ted McGowan and his advisors at Passero Associates will have started on the airport feasibility study to examine the potential for establishing an airport at Reynolds Industrial Park. During their Feb. 27 meeting, the Clay County Board of County Commissioners heard a presentation similar to the one given at the rst February meeting of the Green Cove Springs City Council. Andrew Holesko, Passeros national di rector of aviation, again accompanied Mc Gowan to the podium and explained their multi-step process for determining feasi bility. He explained the studys use of an advisory committee that would be made up County gets Green Cove airport brieng of representatives from both the BCC and Green Cove Springs City Council as well as relevant business owners from around the county. Before the presentation, McGowan ex plained that the commissioners could ask questions directly after, but that the men might not have exact answers for them yet because the study hasnt quite started yet. The presentations were built in as part of the process with regular return trips to the governing bodies throughout the process to provide updated information. The reason we dont have answers for you today is because the feasibility study is not done, Holesko said. Were going to be standing here in front of you four more times [before the study is over]. Following the brief overview of what will take place during the study, commis sioners took a moment to either make re marks and ask basic questions they might have before the public had a chance to speak on the topic. For me, theres a heavy focus on the ability to put industrial development around the airport and bring more jobs to Clay County, said Commissioner Wayne Bolla. Bolla went on to say that he had heard from developers that there is nowhere left to put up businesses zoned as industrial, and according to him, this would be a good spot. This is certainly a major opportunity for the county to draw high wage jobs to that area, he said. Thats a really good t for a lot of high impact jobs coming into Clay County. Other members of the board chose not to make any specic comments, instead praising the depth of the study and the mens guarantee of transparency through out the process. Commissioner Gayward Hendry asked when the rst meeting of the advisory com mittee would be held and Holesko said they had not set an exact date but that it would be during the month of March. The team at Passero has planned to have the study completed within about six months. BCC Chair Gavin Rollins then closed out com missioner comments before turning it over to the public for discussion. Sounds like this is the beginning of a process that will take place, Rollins said. Thank you for making an effort to be in clusive and allow all parties to give input and feedback. Three members of the Green Cove Springs City Council comprised the en tirety of the public comments, including council members Van Royal, Pam Lewis and Mayor Mitch Timberlake. Members of city council have opposed the idea of an SEE AIRPORT, 14

Mazzuchelli was an advocate for charities and organ donations through out his life, with his family even asking that in lieu of owers for the late lieu tenant, donations be made to further or gan donation. They asked donations be made in Mazzuchellis honor to The Sem per Fi Fund an organization that offers nancial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 survivors and the United Network for Organ Sharing a private, nonprot organization that manages the nations organ transplant system under contract with the federal government. Guzzo looks forward to one-day learn ing of the lives his nephews organs have saved. Someday I hope to nd out more about his organ donation, maybe have a drink with his liver, have a touching story with his heart, share a priceless vision with his eyes or just be educated on how he continues to help others from afar, Guzzo said. For obvious reasons, Mazzuchellis family and close friends were not avail able for comment but friends of the fam ily, such as deCordova-Hanks and Mau reen St. John were. Both breast cancer survivors, the women attended the fu neral to support Mazzuchellis mother, herself a fellow breast cancer survivor Christine Cheers. Ive only met her son once but Christine is family and that means [Maz zuchelli] is family, deCordova-Hanks said. With all of the stress and ght ing in the world, we need peace and it doesnt matter where you come from or how much money you have in the bank when theres a tragedy like this where a young life is lost, we need to be there to support the family and thats why we are here today. St. John knew Mazzuchelli a bit more than her friend deCordova-Hanks and found herself at the funeral not only for support of the family, but also to give thanks to a fallen member of the mili tary. Im here to thank James, not in sad ness, but thanking him and thanking his parents for raising him to be such a fo cused and determined man, whether it be at home, in the military or even as someone who chose to be an organ do nor, St. John said. Hes never going to be forgotten and I think because this is a military town, thats what keeps our spirits going. We need to be a support group to everybody. James is survived by his mother, Christine Cheers, father, John Maz zuchelli, step-father David Cheers, and step-mother Trina Mazzuchelli as well as two sisters April and Ashlen Cheers. Surviving Grandparents include Virginia and Dennis Guzzo as well as Jack and Lolly Mazzuchelli. He will be missed greatly by uncles, Scott, David and Bryan, Aunts, Renee, Lisa, and Mary, two nephews, Joseph and Ryder, seven cousins, Ty, Logan, Brianna, Sarah, Alyssa, Cheyenne and Bella, one Godchild Leo, as well as many other extended family members and close friends.

Some of the things [rst respond ers] do, you probably dont think about, said Timberlake in his keynote presenta tion. They serve in our churches and our schools. Many times, they buy food out of their own pocket for needy people. Those are things that go on behind the scenes. Breakfast from page 10 Richard Knoff, now a volunteer re ghter and former Green Cove Springs Fire Chief, said he appreciated the effort from the VIA. Its nice for the community to recog nize what rst responders do, because often times they go unrecognized, said Knoff. Lt. Deanscella White, with Clay Fire Rescue, also appreciated the breakfast, noting that its rare for all the different departments to have a chance to relax as a group. It was great for all of us to get together, White said. We dont have many opportunities like this, we usually just see each other in the eld.

Around 50 participants, mostly stu dents, took time out of their afternoon March 9to work with Rise Against Hunger, formerly known as Stop Hunger Now. The colleges Rotaract Club, a chapter of the global community outreach network, raised over $3,000 over the course of the last two years, in order to bring the foodpacking event to the school. These meals provide vitamins, veg etables and proteins for entire families, said Shandette Ballesta, vice president of St. Johns Rotaract Club. We are going to make a difference in someones life today. While the Rotaract Club organized the event, representatives from a number of different clubs and organizations also par ticipated. Ashley Richardson, president of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, par ticipated with several of her chapter mem bers. She was shocked at the pace of the event. I didnt realize how quickly we could accomplish this, Richardson said. We just packaged 2,000 meals in 20 minutes.

Fleming Island High sophomore Jordan Detwiler, left, stands with Gordon Connell, executive director of the Marine Industry Cares Foundation and Hetwiler Halibuts teammate Austin Hughes, a freshman, March 10 after capturing rst place at the 2018 Marine Industries Cares Foundation SeaPerch Qualier, held in Fort Lauderdale. in all three and we practice a lot. We aver aged high enough to place second overall last year. The SeaPerch competition idea is a three-part competition that teaches stu dents how to research, build and compete using underwater remotely operated ve hicles or ROVs. Alternatively, its described as an innovative underwater robotics pro gram. The settings of the competition include an obstacle course for speed, a puzzle course that measures dexterity of the operator and a research notebook which details the teams preparations, Detwiler said. A team gets points for each based on execution in the competition and there is an overall competition award. At the 2018 Marine Industries Cares Foundation SeaPerch Qualier, held March 10 in Fort Lauderdale, Detwiler and Hughes, under the team name of Hetwiler Halibuts, won in all three aspects to take home three small trophies. They also won the overall points total to take home one more huge trophy and a trip to the national competition. To show perspective, in the puzzle course Detwiler used a remote module to control a tethered underwater ROV to move nine objects from one platform to another. The competition allows for up to 15 minutes to complete the task, said De twiler, who operated the remote control of the ROV while Hughes directed the tether and offered obstacle advise. We did ours in three minutes and 13 seconds and put all of our puzzle pieces on the hardest part of the course. It was amazingly intense. Hughes said the time limit leaves the task little room for error. The tasks we can practice at home, the speed is what is the variable, Hughes said. For Hughes, the speed course entails operating the ROV through ve underwater rings buoyed to the pool oor at different heights and angles. ROVs must travel from one side of the pool, approximately 30 feet, through each of the rings, then sur face, turn around and return through the same rings while not tangling the remote controls tether. Science from page 1 My job is to direct the ROV according to my own visibility and also with Jordans coaching as it pertains to the speed and direction of the cable to make the return easier, Hughes said. We practice in my uncles pool in Keystone Heights most of the time. Hughes ran his ROV through the course in an amazing 34 seconds to dominate the eld of 10 high school teams and 10 junior high teams. Last year, we beat the course record of 37 seconds in practice, but not in competi tion, but this year we beat the record with our 34 seconds in competition, Hughes said. Jordan ran a 3:04 later in the same day, but it did not count as a record. We had already qualied for the national com petition, but the times were still there. The nationals will be held June 2 in Massachusetts and Hughes expects that practices will become even more intense. We used the same ROV for the quali er, but it has pretty much maxed out its use at this level, said Hughes. From now until nationals, we will have a whole new design. Hughes noted that there are larger, more intense levels of robotics competi tions above and below the waters surface, but he and Detwilers objective is to take another four-trophy win at the national level. We go in with just the two of us hav ing done all the preparation, building and execution, Hughes said. We would like to clean sweep this competition at the na tional level then move up. For Jim Hughes, Austins father and chief logistics and operations executive; meaning driver and supplies buyer for Home Depot, and Teri Briggs, Jordans mother and chief driver until recently when Jordan received her drivers license, the competition seems to be easier from the duos initial walk in, but immense prep aration is the key. The key to their success is their con dence and that comes from hours of prac tice and competition against the clock, said Jim Hughes. Their dedication to the idea of being the best at this part of their life is pretty impressive. When they walk in to the pool area, they know they have to bring their A game because they are rec ognized from their successes.

Royal was the rst to take the mi crophone and talked about the future of Green Cove Springs. Theres development happening, businesses coming in, residents coming in, Royal said. People are wanting to be here. He said an airport and boom of in dustrial develop ment that close to the city center would gut prop erty values and drive develop ers and home builders away in favor of commu nities that dont have air trafc. Using examples of airports in surrounding communities, Royal said high-end housing and nice restaurants do not develop near local and regional airports. He said that the county should add industrial zoning to areas in the undeveloped southern portion of the county or west on State Highway 16 if they are interested in seeing growth in those types of businesses. Lewis took the podium next and said that anything other than a small private airport where people could rent a condo and store their airplane or boat would be detrimental to the feel of their riv erfront city. A municipal airport is a terrible waste of our beautiful waterfront prop erty, Lewis said. I picture people using our river like they do every day without regularly scheduled ights go ing over. There are plenty of airports. Timberlake spoke last, moving on from the nancial and aesthetic impact of the proposed airport on the city to the impact on the citys current residents. We have Keystone [Heights] thats begging for an airport, and we would suggest that to be the area to look at, Timberlake said. This issue, even more so than the dragstrip, has elicited more phone calls to me saying please dont do this to where we live. Airport from page 8 Van Royal Clay Electric to refund record $12 million in capital credits KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Clay Electric Cooperatives board of trustees declared a record $12 million Capital Credits refund for members who received service from 1988 through 2016. Capital credits reect the cooperatives not-for-prot and member-owned status and represent each members pro-rata share of any revenue margins left over at the end of the year after all expenses are paid. Capital credits are a unique benet of being served by an electric cooperative. Investor-owned electric utilities also send their margins, or prots, to stockholders and municipally-owned utilities return their prots to city coffers for use in roadpaving or similar projects. Before Clay Electrics nine-member board of trustees decided whether a re fund could be made, it carefully considered a variety of data and economic conditions. Following this review, the board decided it was prudent to refund $12 million to en titled members and former members. This years refund will be the 44th consecutive time that the cooperative has refunded capital credits. Current members of the co-op who are entitled to a refund will receive a credit on their March bills. The number of capital credits bill credits scheduled for this year is approximately $133,700. The average amount of a bill credit this year is $38.66. For those entitled to a refund but who no longer receive service from Clay, a re fund check will be mailed around the mid dle of the month.

STAFF PHOTO BY KILE BREWER Participants in the 4th Quarter Athletics Mardi Gras party pose for a group photo March 3 at the softball elds outside Thomas Hogans Memorial Gym in Green Cove Springs. Mardis Gras comes to Green Cove Springs By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Middleburg resi dent Steven Smith wants to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to partici pate in sports. Through his organization 4th Quarter Athletics, Smith, who the kids call Coach Smitty, is organizing group sports and providing equipment for the community in Green Cove Springs. They have a really close community [here in Green Cove], Smith said. You can see 40 or 50 kids outside at all times. After falling in love with the small town charm that he perceived in Green Cove Springs, Smith wanted to help the commu nity and make sure every kid that wants to participate in sports has that opportunity. A lot of kids want to play and the price of the shoes keeps them from playing, Smith said. My goal is to take that worry off the table so that they can just play. Since last July, Smith has been collect ing sneakers and cleats, shoes for every sport a kid could get involved in and in ev ery size imaginable. Once the Baton Rouge, Louisiana native had about 325 pairs, he decided to go back to his roots and host a community-wide Mardi Gras celebration and give all those shoes away on March 3. Smith said they had over 175 register for the event and gave away more than 300 pairs of athletic shoes. The event provided free pizza, snacks and drinks in addition to games of basket ball and kickball at the Thomas Hogans Memorial Gym on Lemon Street. Smith could be seen among the crowd of people with a big smile on his face as he watched the community come together, with him, to help kids realize their full potential through athletics. I want to bring sports back to the Green Cove area, Smith said. We have some great talent here and I want to help showcase that talent outside the commu nity. This event was the rst of its kind for 4th Quarter Athletics, and going forward, Smith hopes to build on the success of this inaugural shoe giveaway. In his mind, this was the rst of many events that he will host in trying to promote and facilitate ath letics in the city.

Rebellion R ebellion against God is one of the most serious offenses anyone can commit. There are Christians who believe they are doing right things just because they are not living in outright sin. Rebel lion is deceiving. When you do not live according to the revelation of Gods word about the victorious Christian life, you are rebelling against His word. Rebelling against Gods word is to rebel against Him! The rst sign of rebellion is acting as though you are right and everyone else who is serving God is wrong. When your actions proclaim that you are right and everyone else is wrong, you are in serious rebellion. If you reject the teachings of the word for yourself while you expect others to adhere to them, you are rebelling. What is the answer to a rebellious spirit? It is simply this: Submission. How hard is it to submit? It is very hard when you have rebellion within you. Rebellion manifests in hyper-criticism, disrespect towards leadership and a hard ened conviction that you are completely right and others are completely wrong. This happens in the workplace, in the family, in social settings, and saddest of all in churches. When you are rebellious, no one can completely satisfy you. That spirit churns within you. You know what others do not know. You hear from God while others are deaf. You know how things should be done but others know nothing. You are right; anyone else is wrong. Listen, husbands. Listen, wives. Listen, children. Listen, teachers. Listen, students. Listen, everyone! Rebellion will place a barrier between you and your Lord that can only be broken down by sub mission the hardest thing for rebellion to accept. Ask forgiveness for your wrong spirit and submit yourself to the correction of Gods word. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. (Ephesians 5:21) This Scripture makes it clear just how serious this matter really is. Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols.

Hunger from page 12 whole. This often takes the form of agricul tural or educational projects. The goal is to create sustainabil ity. These meals are sort of the doorway into these communities, Haulbrook said. Once were there, we can help establish what works for them. Just basic literacy, in a lot of cases, makes all the difference in the world. Food insecurity is a global concern, with over 815 million people remaining malnourished in 2017, according to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. This is almost a ve per cent increase from the 2015 statistic of 777 million people. For perspective, this more than twice the U.S. population, which sits at 325 million as of 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Haulbrook said that Rise Against Hun ger, due to participation from different organizations across the country, pack aged and shipped over 75 million meals in 2017. While 10,128 meals may seem small in comparison, this didnt affect the enthu siasm of the participants. Any small thing can make a differ ence, Ballesta said.

Most of the 18 counties in the district received less than an inch of rain in Feb ruary. By comparison, average February rainfall for the districts southern counties ranged between 2.5 and 3 inches. The good news is that, despite a month of mostly dry weather, 12-month rainfall totals are still above average throughout most of the district. Rainfall during February followed the trend of below-average rainfall for many counties, with a few exceptions. Seminole, Brevard, Volusia, Indian Riv er and Orange counties all received less than a half-inch of rain. Baker County re ceived the most rain at 1.64 inches, but this is still less than half the county av erage for February. Putnam County has the highest 12-month rainfall total at 66.8 inches. Silver Springs ow increased slightly during February, ending the month in the high-ow range at 711 cubic feet per second or 459 million gallons a day. The Keetch-Byram Drought Index shows favor able conditions for wildre are beginning to develop in south Florida. Meanwhile, on March 13, the SJRWMD board of directors approved a proclama tion designating April as Water Conserva tion Month to encourage awareness about the importance of saving or cutting back on water usage. Water conservation is something we can all participate in without having to drastically altering our habits, said Ann Shortelle, SJRWMD executive director. The district has been committed to water conservation for many years through its educational programs, watering rules and Consumptive Use Permitting program. Wa ter Conservation Month is one more way we can raise awareness about this impor Low February rainfall raises water concerns tant topic. March 20 is the rst day of spring, and many Floridians will begin turning their attention to sprucing up their landscapes now that the dormant winter months are behind us. The district offers a variety of online resources at www.sjrwmd.com/wa ter-conservation, including a searchable water wise planting guide, tips for saving water indoors and outdoors a home water ing use survey, and details on the districts watering restrictions, which are designed to ensure the efcient use of water for landscape irrigation.

Appeal court upholds 2016 rape conviction GREEN COVE SPRINGS The 1st Dis trict Court of Appeal has upheld the 2016 rape conviction of an Orange Park man. On March 8, the court afrmed the July 15, 2016 sexual battery conviction of Kirby William Kines, 23, who was found guilty for raping a woman in 2015. Attorneys for Kines appealed the lower court ruling on grounds that a fundamental error occurred when the trial court admit ted a redacted version of Kines recorded interview with a detective because the jury heard the detective say that Kines was guilty and accused of Kines of lying when Kines denied the victims accusations, ac cording to court doc uments. In January 2015, the victim and sev eral others were attending a party at Kines home. When the victim became ill and unable to move as a result, she was taken to Kines bed room to rest. While the victim was physically immobile, Kines had sex with her against her will, accord ing to court documents. The court denied the appeal citing that there was no objection to the admission of the interview in question during the trial and that nothing the detective said com pared to the claims that Kines was assert ing in his appeal. The court documents also state that Kines waived any claim of error. Moreover, we agree with the state that any claim of fundamental error was waived because the defense counsel invited error when he announced that he had no objec tion to the admission of the redacted inter view and when he referred to the interview during his closing argument, court docu ments said. Kines is in state prison serving an 15year sentence.

Sheris oce warns of counterfeit $100 bills GREEN COVE SPRINGS The Clay County Sheriffs Ofce reports there have been cases of reportedly mass-produced counterfeit currency being passed on to retail merchants in the county. A CCSO social media post said a large portion of the bills many of which are $100 bills have the words For Movie Use Only written on them. These bills clearly state For Movie Use Only and do not have any of the secu rity features of authentic currency, states the post. CCSO ofcials also said there have been Chinese and Russian bills found in the retail market as well. These bills have obvious Chinese markings or what appears to be Russian markings on them and as with the counter feit movie money, have none of the security features that are common with authenti cate US currency, the post continued. CCSO ofcials warn residents to re main aware of the problem and call the agency on its non-emergency line (904) 264-6512 if a counterfeit bill is spotted.

An alliance of ladies, winter residents and full-time residents, formed the Village Improvement Association in 1883. With the proceeds from a fund-raising ball, they installed board sidewalks on popular routes, arranged for clay surfacing on some of the main streets and fenced the cemetery to keep out livestock. After a lull of several years, they reor ganized in 1888 and were in full swing by 1889 when the club ofcially incorporated and John Borden, the condensed milk heir, offered them the use of a cottage. The group established Green Cove Springs rst library and a reading room complete with engraved stationary and hired a servant to serve refreshments. In February of 1895, Bordens daugh ter, Penelope, donated a house and lot at the corner of Palmer and Palmetto Streets which served as the clubhouse until 1914 when a new building was built and remains home to the VIA. They expanded the cultural offerings of the community with concerts, teas and receptions. The ladies creatively raised funds with popular moonlight cruises on the St. Johns River on board the steam ship, Manatee. Proceeds allowed them to launch a beautication campaign including cleverly painted and strategically placed trash barrels. They were so successful that Northern journalists christened Green Cove Springs The Parlor City of the South.

Not resting on their laurels, the group invited delegates from ve other Florida womens clubs to Green Cove Springs in 1895. In a matter of days, they wrote and passed a Constitution and bylaws and elected Penelope Borden president of The Florida State Federation of Womens Clubs. They were just getting started.

Does this sound a little far-fetched? The truth is the capybara, the worlds largest rodent, could become an established citizen in Florida and our county. Description of Capybaras Capybaras are native to South Amer ica and were originally brought into our country through the pet trade and for use in zoos. At adult size, they can be almost four feet long and spend their lives near bodies of water where they can thrive due to their webbed feet and heads designed to allow them to breath easily while swimming. Their main food source is aquatic plants but they tend to be selective eat ers. However, in South America, many consider them to be a pest because of their damage to major crops including sugar cane, rice and soybeans. Semi-aquatic animals that live in social groups in forests, in the wild they prefer being near rivers, lakes or swamps. Re search has shown they can survive on var ious types of vegetation, from grasses to bark. There is a growing concern because they can reproduce at a fair pace because they have four-to-eight babies per litter. An Unexpected Arrival The rst capybara encounter in Florida was a roadkill instance in 1992 and since then, according to invasive species report ing site EDDMapS, there have been at least 35 instances of capybara sightings in the state. Most of these have been along the Santa Fe River but there is one report in Clay County in 2015. It is likely that most of the capybara that have been spotted in Florida are those that have escaped or were abandoned pets. They have been observed in breeding populations over time. However, an accu rate estimate of established animals is not known. A Major Problem? As of now, the capybaras present in Florida have not shown much of an impact and populations have not exploded. More research is needed to understand if they may become a pest in our natural ecosys tems and agricultural elds. Additionally, they have been shown to be a carrier for a few human diseases which could poten tially increase the prevalence of existing pathogens or introduce new ones altogeth er. Overall, management strategies are not known as resources are focused on more destructive and established pests such as feral hogs. n If you have any horticultural, agri cultural, 4-H Club, or family and con sumer science questions, contact the University of Florida/IFAS Clay County Extension Ofce online at http://www. clay.ifas.u.edu or call by phone at (904) 284-6355.

26 CLAY TODAY March 15, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Ray DiMonda Correspondent ORANGE PARK From the rst drive, the Baldwin Indians took the ball, drove down and put the Ridgeview Panthers in a hole that they worked at for three quarters to dig out of. We talked about how mistakes were going to happen, regardless, but it wasnt about making mistakes, it was about re sponding to them said Panther Head Coach Bryan Arnette, who managed a game-long strategy to end up with a 19-13 win on Wed., March 7. On the Baldwin opening drive, it was opening night jitters that Ridgeview need ed to rst overcome. We have some rst year players, some multi-sport players out here, said Arnette. Theyre learning. Once the Indians drove down with a succession of passes and runs to put a quick six on the board, the Panthers stood tall as they broke up the point after at tempt, infusing some energy into the home team. Baldwin is a team that we had dog ghts with the last few years said Arnette. They are a top team in the county, always in that top three or four, so we just had to settle down. We knew if we let our emo tions get to us, they can run out of here with this thing. On offense, it was Brittany Sutton at quarterback showing the home crowd who was practicing her timing throws as she picked off the Indian defense almost at will to march the ball downeld. One of her pri mary targets was receiver Trenity Gilford, who happened to be the last target of the opening drive. Sutton looked to see a wideopen Gilford, put the ball up and Gilford coming down in the end zone for Panther score number one of the season. As it was coming to me, all I could think was dont drop it said Gilford of the rst Panther touchdown catch of the 2018 season. Ridgeviews point after attempt was foiled, keeping things tied up, but not for long. After a back and forth with both teams not able to convert, it was the Indians of By Ray DiMonda Correspondent MIDDLEBURG In their March 8 home opener, host Middleburg Highs ag foot ball squad drew cross-town rival Orange Park High and got hit with a brick wall defense en route to a 25-0 Raiders win. On offense, the Raiders used an air and ground attack orchestrated by senior Harlee Sharpe at quarterback. She red at will, connecting with numerous receivers to rock the Broncos back on their heels. Shes a stud said Raider Head Coach Gary Valero. I just call them and she exe cutes. Shes got great vision, an all-around athlete, shes a stud. Just as the Broncos would adjust to the air assault, Valero would unleash eet footed tailback Jacie Ankrom with her cut back moves that kept the Broncos from pulling her ag to stop the play. Everybody knows shes got the speed and you know the old saying, speed kills said Valero, talking about Ankrom. We call it shake and bake. Just give them the ball and see what they can do. I tell them; you are athletes, dont just run straight ahead. I want shake and bake. The one-two offensive and defensive punch were just too much for the Bron cos to withstand as the Raiders buried the Broncos 25-0. In the rst quarter, Sharp launched a ball between two receivers; Rosa Sawyer tried to catch it, tipped the ball, and al lowed Kaylee Ohar to get under it, handle it and score touchdown number one for the Raiders. The point after was no good for a 6-0 lead with 2:04 left in the rst. On a fourth down pass play, Middleburg attempted a ip pass that was picked off by Orange Parks Tori sure hands Cole. Ive been playing basketball about all my life, so the good hands come easy to me. Said Cole when asked about her ability to pull in the passes. Cole took the ball and went another 10 yards before the Bronco offense turned defense could get Coles ag. On the rst offensive play, Ankrom to use her footwork to skedaddle down the left sideline from about mid-eld for Raider score number two. Ive been playing since I was four. All my coaches over the years had me work on my fundamentals so it really pays off now said Ankrom when asked about her moves. Shake and Bake, you know? I trust my feet more than I do my hands. I play a lot of other sports too, so it all helps out. With a good point after, the Raiders built a 13-0 lead with two minutes left until half. The Broncos again went three and out, resulting in another punt. On the punt reception, Ankrom again dazzled the crowd as she caught the punt and used her footwork, juking, and gain another 15 yards after the catch. Working with a very short eld, Valero called Tori Coles num ber back-to-back as she rst caught a onehanded reception to get the ball closer to the end zone, then again with a touchdown catch over the middle to put the Raiders up 19-0. Middleburg couldnt do anything with the 48 seconds left until half and were simply shut down by the smothering Raid er defense. The Raiders would sack Taylor Swagel to dash any hopes for a rst half score. For the Raiders, it was speed demon Larickya Cummings that seemed to elude the Bronco blockers as she racked up ve sacks on the night. I dont take quarter backs lightly said Cummings. Im fast in general, I get off the line quicker, and Im small so they dont think Ill do anything. This is my fourth year and that is my goal to get at least ve sacks a game. In the fourth quarter, it was a long Raider drive that nally stalled on an over-throw while going for it on fourth down. The ensuing Bronco drive was snuffed out in three plays and a punt. With time running out, Orange Park kept their foot on the gas and started to drive once again. Receptions from Ankrom and Cole both re sulted in huge gains to get the Raiders in scoring position once again. Going for it on fourth and goal to go, this time, Sharp found Rosa Sawyer uncovered in the end zone for the nal Raider score. With 2:00 left on the clock, the mercy rule was ap plied and the game was complete with a Raiders 25-0 victory. Lady Panthers hang on for season opening win fensive drive just before half that was working. As the Panthers were still sort ing things out, getting the right players into position and players learning their responsibilities, the Indians used a pre vailing air attack to work the ball around enough to keep earning rst downs. With nine seconds left until half, the Panthers blew their deep coverage, allowing a r Orange Park quarterback Harlee Sharpe races downeld for big gain in front of coach Gary Valero to lead Lady Raiders to 25-0 season opening win over Middleburg High.

Combs cleared 300 on his second bench press, but instead of going for 305, attempted 315 and failed. I knew my bench would be the difference,Ž said Araujo. He was tough though and we watched each other lifting to see who would blink.Ž In the nal tally, Baker County won titles at 119, 129, 139, 154, 169, 238 and heavyweight.

Michael would nish up the inning with a strikeout and yout. Ridgeview, in their initial at bat, would sored off an RBI double from Adams who punched her shot over second base with Raven Little at second base after getting hit by a pitch. After a single by Raider catcher Addyson Mauldin opened the second inning, Michael dethrottled the Raider attack with strikeouts to the next three Raider batters. An opening double to center eld set up a scoring double from Foster as the Panthers were nding the seams of the Raider defense. For two innings, Michael and Raider pitcher Jennifer Hiers would limit opposing batting lineups to just four at bats apiece to keep the score 2-0 into the fth. The bottom of the fth saw Ridgeview add runs with an opening double to Little, a single to Chloe Chambers and a single to Tatiana Ilias into center eld for a 4-0 lead. Halford was left at second base after a double on a yout to Reghan Boyd. Orange Park showed some resilience in the sixth with an opening single from Carrington, an error to a Ramsy Phillips out eld y and a walk to Hiers to set up Mauldin with a bases loader scenario and a chance to go yard as she did in a win over Middleburg a week prior. Mauldin would sail a y ball to deep center eld, but Chambers would track the ball down for an out, but Saunders calmly took her shot with a long triple in the left center eld gap to put three Raider runs on the scoreboard.

A quick pass and catch and the Panthers were going into halftime down 13-6 after the good Baldwin point after attempt. In the third quarter, Baldwin started with the ball, only to go three and out and a punt. On the punt, it was Gilford once again catching the kick, then picking up another 15 yards before any Indians could catch her and strip her ag. The next offensive play, Arnette stuck with Gilford and Sutton hit her on a cross route. They are going to catch it, then run their butts offŽ said Sutton of her receivers. Just catch it, run, score, and we can move on with the next play.Ž With the catch and run, Gilford had her team just 10 yards away from nally putting the game tying points on the board. On the next two plays, it was Katherine Anderson with the sure hands that rst caught a 6 yarder, then the 4 yard catch to bring the score to 13-12. With the good point after reception from Destiny Alston and the game tied at 13, it was time for the Panther defense to make a stand. They did their job and it was back to work on offense. In the fourth quarter, Sutton looked and saw track sprinter Chereece McEwan open, putting up a great pass that landed perfectly. With the ball in her arms, it was dance time and McEwan didnt disappoint. After the catch, she ran, twisted, and lunged to get the ball safely across the goal line for the rst Panther lead all night 19-13. Flags from page 26

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER IMPOSITION OF SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS PURSUANT TO SECTION 170.07, FLORIDA STATUTES, BY THE MIDDLE VILLAGE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER ADOPTION OF ASSESSMENT ROLL PURSUANT TO SECTION 197.3632(4)(b), FLORIDA STATUTES, BY THE MIDDLE VILLAGE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT NOTICE OF REGULAR MEETING OF THE MIDDLE VILLAGE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT The Middle Village Community Development District is considering obtaining a lower interest rate on those result in a lower annual debt assessment payment on your property and will not The District will hold public hearings on April 9, 2018 at the Plantation Oaks Amenity Center, 845 Oakleaf Plantation Parkway, Orange Park, Florida 32065 at 2:00 p.m. to consider the adoption of an assessment roll, and to consider the imposition of non-ad valorem special the District in the manner set forth in the Districts PreliminarySupplemental Special Assessment Methodology Report for the Special Assessment Refunding Bonds Series 2018-1 and 2018-2, dated March 5, 2018 (Assessment ReportŽ), be obtained upon contacting the District. The purpose of the assessments is to secure the Improvements. The process by which the allocation is to be made is set forth in the Assessment Report, and the maximum amounts to be allocated by product type are as set out in the Assessment Report, which will be presented and approved at the March 5, 2018 meeting of the Board of Supervisors. The public hearings are being conducted pursuant to Chapters 170, 190 and 197, Florida Statutes. A description of the property to be assessed and the amount to be assessed to each piece or parcel of property may be obtained at the Districts Management Services, LLC, 475 West Town Place, Suite 114, St. Augustine, Florida 32092 At the conclusion of the public hearings, the Board will, by approved by the Board. The bonds subject to the Districts proposed refunding include the Series 2004A Special Assessment Bonds in the outstanding principal amount of $35,810,000 (the Series 2004 BondsŽ) and Series 2008A Special Assessment Bonds in the outstanding principal amount of $2,840,000 (the Series 2008 BondsŽ and together with the Series 2004 BondsŽ, the Original BondsŽ). The Original Bonds, which were issued to fund a portion of the Districts various infrastructure improvements (ImprovementsŽ), are secured by non-ad valorem assessments levied on property throughout the District (Original AssessmentsŽ). As noted above, the District is contemplating the refunding of the Original Bonds and issuance of new bonds in one or more series (2018 BondsŽ) to, among other things, take advantage of interest rate savings. The Series 2018 Bonds will be used to (i) currently refund and redeem all of the outstanding principal amount of the Original Bonds; ii) pay certain costs associated with the issuance of the Series 2018 Bonds; (iii) make deposits into the reserve account; and (iv) restructure the allocation of the debt to the assessable property within the 2018 Assessment Area. The refunding will result in a lower interest rate thereby reducing annual assessments owners of property subject to the 2004 and 2008 Assessments. the Series 2004 Bonds and the Series 2008 Bonds and re-issuing the Series 2018 Bonds is a slight increase in the Districts outstanding debt. However, due to the reduced interest rate for the Series 2018 Bonds, the Districts annual debt service payment will decrease. See chart below: contemplated by the District may be accomplished, in large part, through a private placement of the Series 2018 Bonds to a single purchaser (likely a banking institution). There are various contractual obligations of the District that would be required by the purchaser of the Series 2018 Bonds in order to achieve the interest rate savings and par debt reduction set forth above. For example, in the event that the Series 2004 Bonds, Series 2008 Bonds, or Series 2018 Bonds were to ever lose their tax-exempt status, the District would be required to pay a higher rate of interest to the bondholder in accordance with the terms of the draft Fifth Supplemental Trust property would include the obligation to pay assessments corresponding to this higher interest rate in the event the Series 2004, Series 2008 or Series 2018 Bonds were to ever lose their tax-exempt status. 4.8962%, which is slightly lower than the 2004 Bonds of 5.8% and the Series 2008 Bonds of 6.75%. In addition, the District would be required to pay an amount equal to any interest, penalties on overdue interest, and additions to tax owed by the owners of the bonds at that time as a consequence of the Series 2004 Bonds, Series 2008 Bonds, or Series 2018 Bonds losing their tax exempt status. The actual amount of such interest, penalties and additions to tax is indeterminable at this point in time, but the assessment lien against your property would include the obligation to pay assessments to fund interest, penalties on overdue interest, and additions to tax in an amount equal to that owed by the owners of the bonds at that time as a consequence of the Series 2004, Series 2008, or Series 2018 Bonds losing their tax exempt status. and re-issued, any property owner April 9, 2018. Interested property owners may contact the District Manager at 475 West Town Place, Suite 114, St. Augustine, Florida 32092; (904) 940-5850 to request note that property owners who opt to pay the 2004 Assessments or the 2008 Assessments in full will continue to be responsible for paying the annual operations and maintenance assessments levied annually by the District. The Districts assessments will apply in the manner set forth in the Assessment Report. The Assessment Report contains a listing of each property type within the District and the allocation of the assessments per parcel. Debt assessments for the various property types within the District were assigned based on Equivalent Residential UnitsŽ (ERUs). The below table sets forth the number of each property type within the District and the following information for each property type: the ERU factor, the current net annual debt assessment, the new net annual debt assessment for the 2018 Bonds, the current par debt, and the new par debt for the 2018 Bonds. Please note that property owners within the District that own the same property type may have a higher or lower assessment levels. Such variations are the result of prepayments made by the current or prior property owners, which resulted in a decreased assessment level on certain units. The total revenue the District will collect by the subject assessments is $2,113,697.25, exclusive of collection costs and early payment discounts. The assessments presented above represent estimated maximum amounts that may be lower than what is stated and that will Supervisors at the assessment hearing on April 9, 2018. These assessments may be collected directly by the District in accordance with Florida law, or may be collected on the property tax bill issued by the Clay County Tax Collector.
