YOUR GUIDE TO CLAY COUNTY INSERT DECISION 2018 By Kile Brewer Staff Writer ORANGE PARK An elderly Fort White resident didnt make it far after stealing a bag of cash from the Bank of America near the Orange Park Mall Monday morning. At around 10 a.m. Clay County Sheriffs Ofce dis patchers received a 911 call from the bank which reported that Noel Arthur Johnson, 75, had handed a teller a threaten ing note demand ing money. He didnt show a weapon but he implied based on the note that he gave to the teller that he had a weapon with him, CCSO information ofcer Keith Smith said at a press conference at the bank July 23.

On a 3-2 majority vote, members of the council set the tentative millage rate to 3.6, the same it has been since the 2015 scal year, but not without a ght from council member Mitch Timberlake. Theres a signicant number of proj ects in and about the city that we keep pushing off and its going to affect us as the growth goes in around us in our in ability to provide the infrastructure and support that will make this the attractive city that we want it to be, Timberlake said. I have no problem explaining to the ratepayers in the City of Green Cove that were going to do things with that that weve been putting off for years. Timberlake explained that the city has $700,000 in stormwater projects alone that would directly benet from the increase. He did note, however, that he didnt think he would get the 5-0 vote necessary for the one mil increase, so he would also settle for an increase to 4.2763, which would only require a 4-1 vote. To keep things at the 3.6 rate, the council would only need a majority vote. Before Timberlake made his argument for the increase, council member Van Royal led off the conversation, saying that city staff had prepared a good budget with the 3.6 millage rate in mind and that they wouldnt need more money from Green Cove citizens. I think that weve taken some great steps in the last couple of years, Royal said. Weve looked at capital SEE TAXES, 18

This was especially true for a group of Jacksonville movers and shakers. All horse fans, they organized, with Paul Reinhold as president, to construct a state of the art equestrian center for training both harness racing and show horses. In the mid-1940s, they purchased a large tract of land near the Duval County line and developed The Florida Driving Club. The plan included pari-mutual bet ting on harness and standard horse races. With the greyhound racing facility in full operation on nearby property, the inves tors were condent of acquiring state ap proval. A major construction project on the west side of U.S. Highway 17 where Wells Road now stands was commenced and in cluded a show ring and a regulation racing track with an elevated tower for timekeep ers, ofcials and public announcers. In the 1940s and early s, The Florida Driving Club presented both harness and standard horse races, and various riding competitions attracting large crowds for several years. Of course, since they never gained approval for pari-mutual betting, no wagering was allowed. Driving Club was grand while it lasted SEE CLUB, 17 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer FLEMING ISLAND By the year 2038, Clay County is forecasted to have ve new schools serving both junior high and ele mentary levels of education. During the July 23 School Board Special Meeting, the school board was presented with the tentative budget of the 2018-19 school year, as well as a number of other tentative plans, such as schools that may or may not be built in Clay County. Jim Fossa, the school districts coor dinator of planning, present the 2018-19 Educational Facilities Plan and briey touched on the schools expected to be built from now until the year 2038. Fossa said the No. 1 priority is the Green Cove Springs area. So, heres our proposed schools, Fos sa said. If youre looking at the next ve years, youll see that we should be putting [a school] on County Road 315. The area Fossa referenced is near the site of the third phase of Magnolia West, which is currently in development. Ac cording to Fossa, due to the growth cur rently occurring in Magnolia West area, he projects that the property the board owns near there will be the site of the next Clay County school. Its estimated to open as an elementary school for the 2022-23 school year with 862 students and will cost ap proximately $21.85 million. Another ele mentary school is set to open for the 202324 school year with another 862 students and will be built in the Two Creeks area in Middleburg and is projected to cost $22.39 million. Tentatively, Fleming Island is set to re ceive a K-8 school that will open for the 2025-26 school year with an estimated 1,117 students for an estimated $32.91 million. A few years after that, Governors Park in Green Cove Springs will receive a $22.05 million elementary facility set to open for the 2028-29 school year that will serve 862 students. And nally, a junior high will be joining that elementary school in Governors Park for the 2031-32 school year. It will serve 1,117 students and cost $33.65 million. Fossa said the new plan, which is re quired to be updated annually, is still tentative as the numbers are expected to change with each coming year. Before all of that, though, Susan Luget ko presented the 2018-19 tentative budget to the school board. Lugetko began her presentation by explaining the 2018-19 proposed millage levy. Our proposed millage levy for [201819] will be 6.181, Lugetko said. That represents our Required Local Effort of 3.933[mills], Basic Discretionary of .748 and Capital Outlay of 1.5. The 6.181 [mills] will generate approximately $73,742,129 to the district. The Required Local Effort, which is primarily our general fund dol lars, will generate $46,922,471. The Basic Discretionary tentative millage levy will generate an estimated $8,923,979 and the Capital Outlay mill age levy will generate approximately $17,895,679. Last year, the millage levy was 6.438 and it generated $71,778,606. Despite being lower than last years, the 2018-19 millage levy will generate more money than last years did. The reason for this is increased property values in Clay County. With the increase in our [property val ues], we see an increase of $1.9 million [in funds raised by the millage levy this year over last year], Lugetko said. After explaining this upcoming years expected millage levy, Lugetko focused on the impact of the levy has on homeowners. If a taxpayer owns a home with a value of $125,000, the value will be $100,000 af ter the $25,000 homestead exemption. At the millage rate of last year, this home owner would have experienced a tax rate of $643.80 that number represents the school boards portion of the tax. For the upcoming 2018-19 year, that same home owner will pay in taxes $618.10, which is $25.70 less than last year. All of this as sumes the homeowners value will stay the same, which is unlikely according to Lugetko. From here, Lugetko moved on to the Florida Roll-Back Millage Rate. The bottom line is in order to gener ate the same tax bill you had last year, we would need to roll back our millage rate, Lugetko said. In other words, we would need to have a tax reduction in order to generate the same values. Lugetko presented an example to help break this down: Assume that a residence is valued at $125,000 with a $25,000 homestead exemption. If that is the case, the taxable value of that home in 2018 was $100,000. Now, assuming that the houses combined property tax rate was $20 per every $1,000 in valuation, the property owner of this house would have had to pay School board votes to lower property tax bill SEE SCHOOL, 13

By Joseph Pennisi P roperty tax limits thwart funding in public services that boost opportu nity while exacerbating racial and economic inequities. Those are the ndings of a new report by the Washington, D.C.based, nonpartisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Florida is one of only seven states that have limits on property tax rates, total property tax collection and in creases on a homes assessed value. On Nov. 6, Flori da voters will decide the fate of Amend ment 1, which would provide a homestead exemption on the portion of home values between $100,000 and $125,000, and Amendment 2, which would make perma nent the states 10 percent cap on nonhomestead parcel assessment increases. Another ballot measure Amendment 5 would require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to raise state taxes or fees. The Florida Policy Institute recently published a report on the dangers of making it harder to invest in communities by limiting rev enues, noting that funding for disaster pre paredness, infrastructure and affordable health care options would be at risk. Florida communities must be able to raise revenue, particularly in the wake of economic downturns. But property tax lim its, along with other revenue-restricting measures, prevent investment in those things that attract families and businesses, like well-paved roads, beautiful parks and beaches and high-quality schools. Property tax collections have fallen from 50 percent to 39 percent of local governments total tax collections between 1977 and 2015. At the same time, state and federal funding was also declining as a share of local revenue. The state share fell from 8.4 percent to 3.8 percent, and the federal share fell from 30.7 percent to 28.4 percent during that period. This puts pressure on funding for local services, like water and sewage, while making the tax system more reliant on sales taxes and fees, which disproportionately affect low-income residents and communities of color. And thats an ongoing issue in Florida. The fairness of our state and local tax 4 CLAY TODAY July 26, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Craig R. Seaton H omelessness should not be in the 21st Century lexicon of the wealthiest nation on Earth. On my drive into Jacksonville this morning, I was grateful for many things: a beauti ful day, a cool er-than-usual breeze, a family who loves me, a nice home, a hot cup of coffee in my drink holder and light trafc on Roosevelt Bou levard. My gratefulness then took a back seat while passing the Clara White Mis sion. It was about 7:30 a.m. and even though Id been out of bed for two hours already, about 20 or more folks outside the Mission were just waking up. What a contrast to my life! My sleep was peaceful, air-conditioned, softpillowed and took place in a quiet room that smelled of freshly-washed linen. Theirs was most likely agitated, hu mid and hot, whatever-you-can-nd-pil lowed and their bedroom didnt smell of freshly-washed anything. Sweat, ex crement, urine, liquor, vomit, dirt yes, but clean linen? Not a chance. How did I nd myself in a better place? I have no idea. We all have our own opinions about homelessness, its causes and effects on society. Its true many folks made bad choices that landed them on The Street. But more than you could imagine are there simply because they had no other option, or because life just dealt them a lousy deck. The reasons then, that homelessness even exists in the wealthiest nation the world has ever known, must not merely be economic. If that were the case, cer tainly those of us who happen to have a few dollars could pool our resources and solve the problem. Theres no lack of money in the world. We have lots and lots of it. Lotsofit. If it were simply an issue of suit able housing for the citys population, thatd be an easy x as well. We drive by empty houses and buildings all the time. Surely some of these could be adequate shelter for someone whose only roof over their head comes complete with stars, rain, lightning, and that blazing Northeast Florida sun. Is it mental health disease? Yes, sometimes, but not as much as youd think. But even for those cases, we have some of the best medical minds in the world many of whose ofces are right here in Jacksonville. Surely doc tors could just take a walk down Jef ferson Street with a card table and a few chairs, set up shop, and let people talk through their emotional and men tal challenges.

Military Briefs Christian Elkins Devon Berania CORRECTION In a story about Orange Park Town Council and problems regarding the Kingsley East project, we incorrectly reported some informa tion. To clarify, Besch & Smith of St. Augustine is the contractor for Kingsley East, while R.B. Baker of St. Augustine, was the contractor for the Plaineld Avenue project and Stone Engineering of Jacksonville designed both projects. Plaineld was not funded by a bond but is currently under a warranty bond from 2 years of completion. system is ranked 49th in the nation, ac cording to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. According to ITEPs anal ysis, non-elderly families whose incomes are under $17,000 pay almost 13 percent of their income on state and local taxes. Those with incomes in the top 1 percent, at roughly $500,000 or more, only pay about 2 percent of their income to taxes. Meanwhile, as the CBPP report points out, higher-income and white individuals are more likely to benet from the lim its. The owners of high-value homes, who are more often white, receive the greatest property tax discount. Whites are estimat ed to have received about 89 percent of na tional savings from property tax limits in 2011, according to a 2017 academic study. Michael Leachman, senior director of State Fiscal Research at CBPP and one of the authors of the national report, noted that: State property tax caps constrain funding for critical local services like schools and roads. That alone should be reason enough for states to repeal or relax these limits. But its even worse, because property tax caps also exacerbate racial and economic inequalities. The good news is there are other, more sensible ways for states to reduce or control property taxes without leading to dramatic disinvest ment in services or increasing inequality. State policymakers who want to relieve property taxes should focus on creating or strengthening circuit breakers, which re fund households whose property tax pay ments are deemed unaffordable. At the same time, actions to limit property taxes should be coupled with state actions to eq uitably raise the revenue required to main tain and expand investments in schools and other critical services. Joseph Pennisi is executive direc tor of the Florida Policy Institute, an independent, nonpartisan and nonprot organization dedicated to promoting widespread prosperity through timely, thoughtful and objective analysis of state policy issues affecting economic opportunity.

By Chase Carle For Clay Today GREEN COVE SPRINGS Children laugh ing isnt usually a sound most people as sociate with a golf course however, Mag nolia Point Golf and Country Club isnt just a normal golf course. The club is home to The Golf Academy of North Florida, the top-rated junior golf academy in the Jacksonville area. The academy is run by Dale Claussen, 51, who has been teaching golf for over 25 years. Claussen has been ranked as one of the Top 50 junior golf instructors in the country multiple times by several golf pub lications. If a child starts with me at the age of nine or 10, I cant guarantee it but I would feel very comfortable saying that I will get them into college on a scholarship, Claussen said. Claussens track record supports his claims. Seventeen players from the acad emy have gotten scholarships to division one or division two colleges and universi ties in the last eight years. The most successful member of the academy recently is 18-year-old Brandon Mancheno who is a sophomore at Auburn University. As a freshman, Mancheno was named the SEC Freshman of the Year and was a seminalist for the Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year. He sank the putt that clinched the SEC title for Auburn and tied for individual rst in the NCAA Champi onship before losing in the playoff to be named runner-up. Mancheno adds those awards to the ones he won earlier in his golf career where he was a two-time Ju nior Amateur Player of the Year, a medalist at the 2015 US Junior Amateur Champion ship and the 2014 Junior Tour Champion. Mancheno, who dreamed of being a pro fessional golfer as a child, started at the academy when he was nine-years-old. He Were making champions here PHOTO BY THE GOLF ACADEMY OF NORTH FLORIDA Dale Claussen st bumps golf academy camp student, Brady Glavin. credits the academy for helping him nd a balance between work and play when it comes to golf. They keep it fun and simple while also making sure you stay focused and im prove, Mancheno said. Claussen sees endless potential in Mancheno, who was one of Claussens rst students at the academy when it opened in 2007. Brandon will play professional golf, Claussen said. I think hell win on the PGA Tour, thats how good he is. Mancheno said that his relationship with Claussen has morphed over the years from the instructor and student dynamic. SEE GOLF, 20

New projects to be funded: CONSTRUCTION AND REMODELING Security Cameras County Wide (#3231) MAINTENANCE, RENOVATION AND REPAIR Erosion Control/Stormwater Repair (#3009) All concerned citizens are invited to a public hearing to be held on July 31, 2018 at 5:01 p.m. at Teacher Training Center at Fleming Island High School, 2233 Village Square Parkway, Orange Park, FL 32003. A DECISION on the proposed amendment to the projects funded from CAPITAL OUTLAY TAXES will be made at this meeting.Legal No. 42177 published July 26, 2018 in Clay Countys Clay Today newspaper. By Chase Carle For Clay Today KEYSTONE HEIGHTS The race for the District 4 seat on the Clay County Commis sion pits two teachers against each other. Current commissioner Gavin Rollins of Keystone Heights taught ESE History under a three-year temporary certicate at Oakleaf High this past school but is moving on to the St. Johns Classical Acad emy to teach seventhand eighth-grade his tory this fall. Rollins faces fellow Republi can Smitty Huffman of Keystone Heights who teaches social studies, math and science at McRae Elementary north of Keystone Heights. If elected, Rol lins said he views a second term as a continuation of his service from the current term on of ce. Rollins said he wants to help improve the quality of life for Clay County residents. He cited specic examples such as reopen ing the boat ramp in Keystone Heights. When Im gone from the commission, Id love for people to say Gavin left his mark in regards to our parks and nature areas, said Rollins. Huffman says the biggest issue right now is a lack of communication between the commission and the residents of Clay County. He wants to change that. I would like to set up regular ofce hours at different companies or busi nesses in the district and have a schedule where the citizens could come and see me DECISION 2018 COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 4 Candidates Smitty Huffman (REP) Cheryl Owen (DEM) Gavin Rollins (REP) during those hours, said Huffman. But, Rollins counters that he helped usher in more transparency for residents during his tenure. He said he pushed for the implementation of Facebook Live for meetings as well as moving the meetings from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to allow more access by the public. Rollins said that he also would like more educational materials and videos to help citizens understand why the commis sion does certain things. Huffman also believes commissioners should return all phone calls within 24 to 48 hours. He wants to move the commis sion meeting times once again as well. It was a pseudo solution to change the time from 2 to 4, said Huffman. It looks good to say theyll do it later, but it doesnt actually help the citizens since most of them cant make it by 4 either. Huffman said a 6 p.m. start would re sult in greater citizen participation. Huffman believes that he can provide the necessary leadership to help gov ernment agencies work together more smoothly, however, he said more diploma cy is needed. I believe I have the ability to set aside my ego. At my age and experience I can do that easily because all of my decisions will be based on whats best for the citizens rather than for me and my interests, said Huffman. That leadership doesnt exist on the commission for this district currently. The Sheris Oce $3 million budget increase request When asked their thoughts on the re quest by Sheriff Darryl Daniels for a $3 million budget increase for his depart ment, despite crime statistics trending downward, both men had slightly different opinions. Rollins said that he believes public safety is the most important thing in Clay County and that the police force is what helps keep citizens safe. He views the requested budget increase request as a proactive maneuver rather than poten tially having to make a reactive maneuver if crime increases. Rollins said that the size of the sheriffs ofce needs to grow in proportion to the population. However, he also said the CCSO budget would be looked at carefully. Its not a blank check by any means, said Rolins. Were going to scrutinize and make sure its in the best interest of the citizens, but we have to trust that the sheriff knows what hes doing. Huffman said he would immediately want to review the request as well as oth er factors that would come into play. He said its a pretty straightforward process in his mind. What is that $3 million going to be used for is the rst question I would ask. What is his current budget being used for, said Huffman. Every department would like a budget increase. The biggest problem is being able to take the existing budget and see where the money is being spent, what the priorities are and what the citizens want the priorities to be. Growth Management Both candidates have similar stances on handling projected future growth for Clay County. With some estimates project Clay Countys population could double in the next 20 years, which makes growth management a key issue. Growth is inevitable, said Rollins. What you have to do is manage it cor rectly. Rollins said that part of that manage ment is setting aside conservation land. He wants to make sure that Clay County maintains its green spaces and nature ar eas even as it grows. We have to let growth happen at a sus tainable rate, said Rollins. We cant just let growth happen anytime, anywhere with no oversight. He also said that he wants to see more business growth so fewer Clay County resi dents have to commute out of the county for work. Huffmans views on growth or similar. He said growth needs to be controlled, with a long-term view that is well thought out and well planned. I think a lot of times decisions are made in the county that are short-term thinking. They are based sometimes on special interests and some of the politi cal powers that may be, said Huffman. I think that long-term plans, well thought out plans are whats needed. The citizens of the county need to come rst. Huffman also said that positives of the growth are the economic side as well as the improving school system. He said that the school district improvement will only aid the economic growth since good school districts help increase property values. Tourism When it comes to tourism in Clay Coun ty, both Rollins and Huffman seem to feel that using and promoting whats already available is the best course. Rollins talked about the natural re sources that are plentiful in Clay County such as Black Creek and the St. Johns River as well as the various parks. He also brought up the museums at Camp Blanding and in Green Cove Springs and areas with a rich history such as downtown Middle burg to bring in outside tourism. Huffman also talked about the water ways and parks as attractions. He thinks highly of a yearly event that takes place in the county as well. We have, I still believe, one of the best county fairs in the Southeast, if not the rf r Gavin Rollins Smitty Human SEE DECISION, 13

During the July 24 Board of County Commissioners meeting, Greg Hunting ton, municipal marketing and government affairs manager, for Advanced Disposal explain the companys goals moving for ward and how it plans to mend its rela tionship with its customers in Clay Coun ty. Huntington said the trash company takes full responsibility for all problems the county has experienced. I wish I could say we were here un der better circumstances, but Im here Months of trash pickup woes end with BCC Greg Huntington representing Advanced Disposal...to take full responsibility for the fact that we have fallen short and in many cases, very short, in fullling our con tractual obligations as it pertains to your waste manage ment contract that you have with us, as well as the services that the residents expect, Huntington said. There are in ternal issues as well as external issues, but those are issues are ours and they shouldnt become yours. For well over a year, the BCC has re ceived numerous complaints that Ad vanced Disposal hasnt provided to citi zens who expect their trash and recycled products to be picked up accordingly, and those who have reached out to the cus tomer service lines of the company. At the last BCC meeting, Rollins said he has received numerous letters explaining that when someone calls the customer service lines hoping to receive a solution to their problem, theyre often left hanging with either no reply from the company or a non-answer answer. Huntington assures that these errors are being xed, though. On July 13, Huntington and County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos met to create an action plan to x the woes of the company. That action plan included two key steps in improving the service Ad vanced Disposal provides to Clay County. The rst step has already taken place and will continue to take place, which is customer service. Huntington said SEE BCC, 19

New projects to be funded: CONSTRUCTION AND REMODELING Security Cameras County Wide (#3231) MAINTENANCE, RENOVATION AND REPAIR Kitchen/Cafeteria Renovations County Wide (#3817) All concerned citizens are invited to a public hearing to be held on July 31, 2018 at 5:01 p.m. at Teacher Training Center at Fleming Island High School, 2233 Village Square Parkway, Orange Park, FL 32003. A DECISION on the proposed amendment to the projects funded from CAPITAL OUTLAY TAXES will be made at this meeting.Legal No. 42178 published July 26, 2018 in Clay Countys Clay Today newspaper. Decision from page 11 nation, said Huffman. The emphasis seemed to be less on building or developing new tourist at tractions and more on promoting existing things. Were not going to compete with Or lando and things like Disney World, said Huffman. But that doesnt mean we cant advertise and improve on the things that we do have. Use and allocation of available funds Rollins and Huffman have ideas on how available funds can and should be used. Rollins seemed more focused on how to save money while maintaining quality. He cited the commissions decision to pull out of the Regional Planning Council after ser vices the Council provided became some thing that the commission did in-house. Rollins said that leaving the council has saved $320,000 over the last four years. If we come up with a better way of doing it, we can provide the same level of service and we dont have to raise taxes on citizens, said Rollins. Huffman focused more on infrastruc ture and recreational facilities for funds to be used on. Huffman said there are roughly 700 roads in Clay County and more than half of them are unpaved, especially in Dis trict 4. He believes that improving those roads and the drainage associated with them will go a long way to improving ev eryones quality of life. Huffman also said improving the rec reational facilities in the area will help improve quality of life as well. He believes enhanced recreational facilities and infra structure would also help boost local tour ism. Huffman said whatever decisions are made, their needs to be more input from the citizens. That has to be decided, not by a group of commissioners on their own, said Huff man. That needs things like town hall meetings and citizen input. He also believes that more input would help citizens understand the decision-mak ing process more. A lot of times the decisions arent nec essarily bad, but they need to have own ership by the citizens, so they understand School from page 2 why those decisions are made and thats not being done right now, said Huffman. Their campaigns Both Rollins and Huffman said their campaigns are going well although both said it was unfortunate that money had to play a such a large role in the process. Rollins, who has amassed $27,975 in contributions and $8,870.80 in expens es, said his funds are being used to help spread the word about what hes already accomplished as commissioner and what he plans to do if re-elected. I can do all kinds of things, but if peo ple dont know about them then they cant use that to make a decision on whether to vote for me or not, said Rollins. If they dont know what I stand for then theyre going in blind, and thats what I use my funds for. Huffman, who currently has $6,691.72 in contributions and $5,109.13 in expens es, said hes grateful for the contributions hes received so far. All of my funding comes from individu als and blue-collar workers, said Huff man. I would refuse to take any campaign funding from any companies that do direct business with the county. Its a conict of interest. The race between Rollins and Huffman will be decided during the primary election on Aug. 28. The winner will run against Democratic candidate Cheryl Owen, also of Keystone Heights, on Nov. 6. Owen did not return calls prior to deadline. $2,000 in taxes in 2017. Using the same house, if its value was increased by $10,000, with the homestead exemption, what tax rate would the home owner need to pay to maintain $2000 in taxes in 2018? That tax rate is the rollback rate. This home, valued at $135,000 would have a taxable value of $110,000 after deducting the homestead exemption of $25,000. At the current rate, this house would generate $2,200 in taxes. The roll back rate is the rate that would get this number back down to $2000, which is what the number was in 2017. The tax rate would need to roll back to $18 per $1,000 in valuation to meet the $2,000 in taxes paid. After roll-back rates, Lugetko pre sented the number that everyone wanted to hear: the general funds fund balance, which functions much like a reserve fund. At the start of the 2018-19 school budget year, which began on July 1, the fund bal ance of the school board tentatively sat at $28,985,129. Its tentative because the nal numbers for the 2017-18 school year have yet to be audited, meaning theyre not nalized. Because those numbers directly affect the 2018-19 school year numbers, every thing so far for this year is simply an es timate, or rather, whats expected. The to tal revenue the school district is expected to earn this year is $281,531,759. If this number remains true, the school board will have $310,516,888 total in funds avail able, which will pay for a number of expen ditures the board faces such as employee salaries and benets, materials and sup plies, debt service and more. She pointed the districts debt service obligation payments for the 2018-19 school year is looking like $5,450,854. This is how much debt the school board plans to pay this year. By the 2031-32 school year, the board is estimating that number will drop signicantly lower to $216,350. Over the next few weeks, the school board will continue to meet to discuss this years budget. On Sep. 6, the school board will host a public hearing to approve the nal budget where its expected that the budget, in its entirety, is nalized.

The list of checks ranges from uncashed jury service checks, witness checks, over payments, refunds, to cash bonds. The smallest check is for $4.88, while the larg est is more than $500. Clerk of Court Tara S. Green urges ev ery Clay County resident to review the list of checks just to be sure their name is not on it. We work to make sure our customers receive the funds that are rightly theirs, Green said. Whether the amount is large or small, its important that we help citi zens nalize their court-related process by notifying the recipients in this way. Like all Clerk of Court ofces across the state, local Clerks review unclaimed and uncashed checks annually and send out a public notice once the funds have remained unclaimed for more than a year. Clay Countys list of unclaimed checks is online under the Announcements sec tion of the website clayclerk.com, as well as this weeks Legal Notices section in the Clay Today. Residents whose names are on the list have until Sept. 1 to claim the money. The checks listed were mailed but were never cashed for various reasons.

Under Florida law, unclaimed checks not picked up by the deadline are forfeited and deposited into the Clerks Fine and Forfeiture Fund. For more information, call the Clerks Ofce at (904) 269-6317. Henry named region superintendent in Duval Schools JACKSONVILLE A Green Cove Springs resident and former Clay County School District ofcial is now the region super intendent of middle schools for the Duval County Public Schools.

Henry returned to Duval County in 2017 after serving as head of human resources in the Springeld Public School District in Springeld, Or egon. During the 2017-18 school year, Henry also served as interim principal at Jean Ribault High School from January to June. As we experience transition in leader ship, I am honored to serve in numerous capacities district-wide in order to move this very important work forward. Indeed, I am very appreciative of all the oppor tunities afforded to me to build capacity throughout the district, Henry said. His background includes a focus on instruction, school improvement, leader ship, human resources, mentoring and building capacity among school-based and district-level administrators, along with serving as a national AdvancED Systems Lead Evaluator for accreditation. Previ ously, Henry has served as an elementary principal for schools in Springeld, Mass. and Clay County. Henry also served as a middle school principal in Duval County from 2006-2010.

DEP launches algal bloom grant program TALLAHASSEE The Florida Depart ment of Environmental Protection has launched a $3 million grant program to help local governments clean up water ways affected by algal blooms caused by federal discharges from Lake Okeechobee. As we continue our focus on long-term and larger-scale solutions, such as the EAA reservoir, rehabilitation of the Her bert Hoover Dike and reviewing innovative technologies, we are also committed to partnering with local communities to ad dress immediate impacts. We encourage local counties to work with DEP to take advantage of this grant program and to help us move forward with these longerterm solutions, said DEP Secretary Noah Valenstein. The emergency funding will be provid ed to help communities provide targeted clean-up efforts to quickly reduce and ad dress impacts to signicantly impacted ar eas, such as marinas, boat ramps and oth er public access areas. Funding from this grant program can be used for services including containment, removal, cleanup, elimination, transportation and disposal of harmful algal blooms in key areas identi ed by Floridas local counties. As our state once again faces harm ful algal blooms from federal water re leases, we continue to take a multifaceted approach to protect families and ensure Floridas pristine environment and natu ral treasures are protected. While we continue to focus on federal repairs to the Herbert Hoover Dike and water storage in the EAA Reservoir, this $3 million in emergency state funding will help our local communities quickly respond to and miti gate algal blooms, ensuring the safety of Florida families and protecting jobs, said Gov. Rick Scott. Earlier this month, following a tour of the Caloosahatchee River, Scott issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency in Glades, Hendry, Lee, Mar tin, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lu cie counties to help combat algal blooms caused by Lake Okeechobee water dis charges. Camp Blanding to receive portion of $1.4 million in military grants TALLAHASSEE Camp Blanding will benet from a half-a-million dollar grant from awarded through the Florida Defense Support Task Force Grant Program. Its one of six projects to protect mili tary installations across the state. This year, awards were given to the South Flor ida Progress Foundation, Polk County, Clay County Development Authority, Bay Coun ty, the Central Florida Planning Region and Gulf Coast State College. The grant program awarded $500,000 to the Clay County Development Authority, which will use the funds to buy land around Camp Blanding to buffer the base from in compatible land development. Camp Blan ding trains over 350,000 members of the Florida National Guard, active duty mili tary, and law enforcement. In accordance with our principal pur pose of promoting sound economic devel opment of Clay County, the Clay County Development Authority is pleased to re ceive this grant. It will strengthen the strategic partnership with Camp Bland ing Joint Training Center and improve the quality of life for our citizens by securing a buffer from future development and en croachment, thus protecting the installa tion that comprises almost one-fth of the county and is tied to its economic viabil ity, said Josh Cockrell, executive director of the CCDA. This project will purchase fee and/or less than fee interest in properties within the approved Army Compatible Use Buf fer around Camp Blanding Joint Training Center to buffer it from incompatible land development and encroachment, by using matching funds from the Florida Defense Michael Henry James Machado SEE BRIEFS, 22

The impressive clubhouse was located on the northeast corner of U.S. 17 and Wells Road and the exterior was modeled after Washingtons manor house at Mount Vernon. The grand main room boasted the rst terrazzo oors in Clay County and an oversized ornate replace with a 4-foot by 2-foot mosaic tile rendering of the club seal above the mantle. In 1946, to provide a suitable launch of the venture, a spectacular two-day show was held on October 5 and 6. It was billed as a grand opening, although many of the structures were still under construction. The event was a smashing success and set a record for the state, drawing 200 en trants in 47 classes with horses, trainers, owners and handlers from throughout the Southeast. The show was actually held on the ad jacent track at Jacksonville Kennel Club since the main track at the Driving Club was not complete. The facility provided substantial grandstand seating. Sold out two weeks shy of the show, 400 private boxes each accommodating 6 guests were available at ringside for the serious horse people. Crowds arrived by chartered buses and chauffeur-driven limousines before noon for the rst days 1 p.m. show and just stayed on for the second round of events at 7:15 p.m. Although the weather proved uncooper ative and a light drizzle persisted for most of the weekend, crowds both days exceed ed 3,500. Orange Parks population danced around 700 souls at the time, so this was really a big deal. Sadly, the certication for pari-mutual betting never materialized. For several years, the complex boarded horses for local owners and trainers and Northern harness racing stables leased portions of the property for winter training in milder climes.

Phone Number Protected.Text 313131 to904-479-1555 Dr. William P. Register First Assembly Fleming Island Faith Walk Praise the Lord Today I was having a conversation with Jackson, my nine-year-old grandson. We were discussing blessings. We agreed that we should always thank the Lord for His blessings to us. Everyone knows this. We should praise the Lord and thank Him faithfully. Howev er, so many of us fail to do it. Every day is a cause for rejoicing and praising Him. Praise Him for this day! This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalms 118:24) Paul said to the Thessalonians: In ev erything give thanks (praise Him). This is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thess. 5:18) Jesus healed 10 lepers on one occa sion. When they were healed, they went to show themselves to the priests because that was the protocol for them to return to society. Nine of them rushed away. Only one of them turned and paused to give thanks to the Lord Jesus for his healing! Thankfulness by one out of 10 may not be typical. I hope not. But it does illus trate the point that we can so easily re ceive wonders from the Lord and not take the time to praise Him for His blessings. Choose to be like the one, not like the nine. When Jesus was being praised by mul titudes who were declaring Him to be the Son of God, the envious Pharisees called on Him to rebuke the people who were so loudly and joyfully praising Him. Jesus re plied, If these were silent, the very stones would cry out. (Luke 19:40) The Lord will be praised! If we leave it to others in His creation, we lose the ben ets that come to us by our participation in exalting Him. We should join our voices and hearts with all He has created and praise Him. Praise the Lord! Praise him according to his excellent greatness! (Psalm 150: 1-2). Let everything that breathes, sing praises to the Lord.

It worked out good partnering with those [agencies] that are around us, Smith said. We had a good ending to this incident today. No injuries were reported, obviously you can imagine the tellers and the workers inside the bank are a little shook up. Once he was arrested at the scene, paramedics arrived to check over the rob ber after he reported feeling light headed and because of his age, police said. It was an older gentleman that was involved in this incident so for precau tionary reasons they had rescue come around there and just check him out, Smith said. According to the CCSO report, $1,760 was recovered from the vehicle. After his arrest, police transported Johnson to the Clay County Jail where he was booked on felony charges for armed robbery with a deadly weapon other than a rearm. He is being held on a $10,000 bond and will appear in court on Aug. 29. In the past, when these type of crimes happen, people would come over from Duval or surrounding counties and commit crime here in Clay and then jump back on I-295 or jump back over into Jacksonville and think, Hey were gonna be safe and you cant come and catch us, Smith said. Well, now we have things in place to combat that and this one worked out just like it was supposed to. Bank from page 1 improvements, across the board now with the addition of electric. Weve looked at stormwater, weve got those things in place. He continued, Being somewhat conservative, leaving it at that 3.6, as suming well get 3 percent, and as Dan ielle [Judd, city manager] has pointed out in her memos, we can live within that and I think that at certain times its fair to the public to ask us to live within our constraints and with what we have. Councilor Pam Lewis spoke next, agreeing with Royal. I think that the budget was well done, it gives us the funds that we need to continue building our city infrastruc ture, which is very important, Lewis said. It provides adequate facilities for our workers to work in and I think we need to proceed with that. Im pleased with 3.6 as well. Council member Steven Kelley also spoke in favor of keeping things where they are at, agreeing with the two pre ceding council members. I think setting the precedent of working within the 3.6 is good, espe cially in this time of appreciation that weve had over the last year, Kelley said. Timberlake took to the microphone next, Madame Mayor, Ill be the con trarian tonight, which doesnt surprise anyone. Royal made a motion to keep the rate at 3.6, but Timberlake advised the mayor to hold out on that vote so he could make a motion and offer mem bers of the council a chance to support his request for an increase. [By approving the millage rate at 3.6] were essentially locking our selves into an arbitrarily low number before we sit down and look at the various budget items that are before us and it affords us no opportunity, or very limited opportunity, to raise the millage rate on a going-forward basis, Timberlake said. Royal offered a rebuttal. There are going to be times that we cant get everything done, but the Taxes from page 1 city has made large strides [within the budget constraints], Royal said. Every body doesnt get a 4.6 percent increase in their salaries and it would be fair across the board. Timberlake spoke again before a vote could be taken on Royals motion. Theres a difference between being conservative and being ill-advised, Tim berlake said. Nocatee is an area that has taxes and fees that are signicantly higher than ours, and its one of the fastest growth areas in Florida. Mayor Connie Butler spoke up support ing Timberlakes tax hike. I would rather have something to work with, personally, than just the 3.6, Butler said. I would feel more comfortable with having a little bit more there to work down from, if we think we can still work with the 3.6. Royals motion passed 3-2, with Lewis and Kelley sticking to their previous state ments, and Timberlake and Butler dissent ing, holding out for a tax hike. The vote also set dates for public budget hearings, which cannot coincide with those of the School Board and County Commission. Green Cove Springs will hold budget hearings in conjunction with their regularly scheduled meeting dates and times on Sept. 4 and 18. Though this was the only item pre sented under council business, the consent agenda saw the passing of two projects that will each bring their own impact to the city. The rst item passed will allow for the purchase and construction of a large elec tronic sign in front of City Hall to be used to inform citizens of city events and other information they might nd useful. The $44,944.82 sign will be paid for by $70,000 that was set aside for this years CIP budget, which included the sign and one more that will not be built yet. Due to the size, however, Tuesdays 5-0 vote to ap prove the sign is contingent on the Plan ning and Zoning Boards decision to allow a variance to allow for the large size. Also, on the consent agenda was a pro posal for the purchase and installation of a T-shaped dock for Vera Francis Hall Park. The dock will cost approximately $16,911.19 and will be paid for out of a pair of $50,000 Florida Recreation De velopment Assistance Project grants for the park and the Augusta Savage Arts and Community Center.

In other business ... Clay County Emergency Management Services Director John Ward asked the BCC for approval to apply for a grant to help fund six drainage projects. If ap proved, the Hazard Mitigation Grant from FEMA would fund 75 percent of the six drainage projects with the county covering the other 25 percent. These six projects are already on the BCCs Capital Improve ment Plan, so the projects are already bud geted to be paid in full, according to Ward. If this grant is awarded, the county would only have to cover the cost of 25 percent of the projects. Were hoping to try to save the county some money by applying for this, and these projects are all drain age projects that would hopefully pre vent some of the ooding we have in some of our drainage areas, Ward said. The total amount of these six projects comes out to $3.89 million, so if the grant is received, the county would only be covering $974,250. The board approved Wards request with a unanimous 5-0 vote. Commissioners also received an update on FEMA reimbursements the county has already applied for. County Finance Di rector Clayton Meng said Clay County re ceived its rst reimbursement installment of $200,000 in Hurricane Irma money from FEMA. Almost as signicant as the money itself is the time it took for the money to arrive. Its quite signicant that we already received some money back from Irma because that happened, a little over nine months ago, and the reimburse ments for Hurricane Matthew took al most a year-and-a-half, Meng said. We still have quite a bit outstanding but its nice to see the ball rolling so soon. In other business, the BCC voted to ap prove an agreement between Clay County and St. Johns Classical Academy charter school. County Attorney Courtney Grimm ex plained that in almost every situation, BCC members are prohibited from abstain ing from participating in a vote unless a member would receive a personal benet from something that may be triggered by the vote. In this case, Grimm was speak ing to Rollins, who is set to be a teacher at SJCA this upcoming school year, and Com missioner Diane Hutchings, who serves as the Founding President for the SJCA Board of Directors. As we discussed, based on your em ployment with [SJCA], there could be a perceived personal benet even though its actually to your principal, Grimm said. I believe that it would be your decision that you would like to abstain based on that and le the actual disclosure. Rollins responded by explaining that al though he probably could technically vote on this agreement, he would prefer to act in an abundance of caution to rid any po tential perception or impropriety and he did so by recusing himself from the vote. Hutchings disclosed her relationship with SJCA shortly after Rollins statement and explained that she receives no benet or gain at all in voting on this agreement and because of that, she would not be recusing herself like Rollins. Hutchings two grand children also attend the charter school. This agreement serves as a way to en sure that SJCA follows the trafc construc tion promises it has contractually made with the county. The improvements include a Dec. 31 deadline to construct a south bound right turn lane on Canova Road that leads to the SJCA entrance driveway. The BCC voted 4-0, with Rollins ab staining, to approve this agreement be tween SJCA and Clay County. BCC from page 12 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer ORANGE PARK While multiple candidates introduced themselves and discussed their platforms at a recent candidate forum, the liveliest discussion took place among the seven candidates vying for three seats on the Clay County School Board. Sponsored by the Clay County Repub lican Executive Committee, some 150 guests attended the July 19 event at Rid geview High School. Attendees also heard from candidates running for a Fourth Judi cial Circuit judgeship, a seat in the House of Representatives and a Board of County Commissioners seat. After one-minute candidate self-intro ductions, moderator Kent Justice launched into questions for School Board District 1 candidates, incumbent Janice Kerekes and her opponent Latanya Peterson. The rst question came across as a bit of a softball and asked candidates to explain their posi tions on recusing themselves from a school board vote. Kerekes answered rst by refer ring to a Florida Statute that lays out the circumstances in which an elected ofcial should recuse themselves from a vote and Peterson agreed. State statutes are the supreme author ity in these instances, as my opponent has already mentioned, Peterson said. You also want to make sure that you are not vested in special interests that contribute to your campaign [during a vote] and you have to make sure youre honest at all times. Peterson has accepted campaign separate $500 contributions from at least one char ter school company, Red Apple Develop ment LLC and consulting rm, The Horne Group, which lobbies the Florida Legisla ture on behalf of charter schools. When Justice asked District Three in cumbent Betsy Condon and her opponent, Tina Bullock, about the challenges facing the school board today, Condon focused on the need to bolster the use of technology and trade education in Clay County schools. Bullock focused on the budget, citing a need to provide more funds to teachers. Both agreed school safety should remain a prior ity throughout the county. It wasnt until Justice asked Peterson and Kerekes about charter schools that the discussion became heated. Not only did Pe terson and Kerekes speak their minds about this hot-button topic in the county, but Dis trict Five incumbent Ashley Gilhousen and Bullock got involved as well. According to Peterson, charter schools simply represent another choice parents have when selecting a school for their chil dren. Its no different than choosing what stores to shop in, what car we want, what jobs we want, Peterson said. I support charter schools. Kerekes drastically disagreed with Pe tersons position, citing the idea that char ter schools are meant to be presented as options for parents in locales that have fail ing schools. According to Kerekes, there are no failing schools in Clay County, which begs the question of why are charter schools in the area at all. Gilhousen, whose mother, County Commissioner Diane Hutchings, serves as the St. Johns Classical Academy charter school founding and current board president, sided with Peterson. Gilhousen said charter schools are held to the same standard as any other school in the county. After Gilhousen, Bullock said the idea that money doesnt follow students leaving char ter schools, an issue hurting the funds of the school board. A lot of people think the money follows our child when they go to a charter school and thats correct, Bullock said. But you know what, it doesnt follow them back[to the public school]. So, in other words, if they go over to a charter school and decide theyre unhappy or dissatised, guess what they do; guess where they go back to: pub lic schools. Guess where the money stays, though[at the charter school]. Charter schools remained the hot topic for a bit longer after Justice brought up low grades for some schools in the county. One of the biggest surprises in Clay Countys school grades this year was St. Johns Clas sical Academy receiving a C. That schools C comes a year after charter school Or ange Park Performing Arts Academy had its charter revoked by Clay County and the state for getting an F grade. Bullock said a C grade isnt the kind of difference anybody wants from a charter school, playing into the idea that charter schools offer students a different kind of ed ucation. Condon was quick to defend SJCA, though, and brought Clay Charter Academy into the conversation. According to Condon, when this school opened, it did so as a C school. The following year, it received a B and this year, an A. Using one year as a microcosm to say whether a school should be approved or not is one, not statutory and two, not a fair comparison of those kids, Condon said. The discussions continued with mod eration by Justice bringing issues such as state legislature communications, school resource ofcers and budget priorities into the conversation. Almost entirely across the board, the candidates found themselves in moderate agreement with each Center, school board candidate Tina Bullock, speaks with two Janice Kerekes, incumbent Dis trict 1 school board member, supporters at the July 19 Republican Party candidate forum held at Ridgeview High.

Claussen believes the biggest differ ence between his academy and others can be summed up in one word passion. I truly believe that the reason were so successful is because of the passion we have, said Claussen. Within the rst ve swings a student takes, Claussen can tell if theyre a natural or not. He makes it clear that just because someone isnt naturally gifted doesnt mean they cant be successful. Conversely, just because someone is naturally gifted doesnt mean theyll excel at the sport. For Claussen, again, it all comes back to passion. A sign in Claussens golf cart says you have to have passion to be the best, and he stands by that. That applies to whatever you do, said Claussen. If you dont have passion then you can be good, but you wont become great. The academy takes students as young as ve and teaches them all aspects of the sport. They learn how to play but they also learn how to handle themselves on the course, etiquette, the mental aspect of the sport and more. You cant just become a good player by learning how to swing a golf club, said Claussen. Theres so much more that you need to learn. There are ve instructors at the acad emy, including Claussen, and each one works with their own group of students. While the other instructors work with new er and part-time students, Claussen works with the more advanced students. The academy has a multitude of pro grams and the instructors work to tai lor the lessons to the students needs. Claussen said that one lesson can be to just go play on the golf course and have fun. For him its all about making sure the students dont lose sight of the fun of the sport. That mindset has certainly spelled suc cess for his students so far. Claussen has nine students currently playing in college and says he has about 15 he believes could reach the same level as Mancheno. One of his current students is ranked 19th in the nation and 4th in the state. After a student reaches the college level, Claussen takes a step back from the role hes often been in for years. He seems content to watch their progress and suc cess from afar if necessary. Once they go off to college I like to let them spread their wings and do their own thing, said Claussen. Some kids will go off to college and I wont hear from them for 6 months or more, while others, like Brandon, I talk to twice a week or so. Brandon Mancheno of Mandarin tied for the top spot at the NCAA Championships at 7-under overall before falling in a playo. He trained at Golf Academy of North Florida. Dale Claussen and Alex Blom, 10 practice putting skills on the putting green at Magnolia Point Golf and Country Club, home of the Golf Academy of North Florida.

Rodriguez is going into her senior year and has been in the Pace program since February. She stopped going to public school and started acting out after her par ents separated. Before attend ing Pace, I had never thought about attending college, Rodriguez said. But when I got to Pace, it became an option and now its a dream of mine. The July 16-19 camp was a part nership between the Pace Center for Girls and SJR States Orange Park campus. Girls from Pace Jacksonville and Pace Clay who are graduating within a 12-calendar month were able to participate in the boot camp. Each day of the boot camp taught the girls something different about college. On Monday, the girls did a support and vision exercise and then went on a campus tour with the dean and directors from SJRC. On Tuesday, the student activities co ordinator from SJR State discussed the transition into college, the behavioral ex pectations and code of conduct. The aca demic advising staff discussed resources available to college students, how to use them and why they are benecial. Mind, body and soul was the theme for Wednesdays class. Study skills, how to read a syllabus, how to read and manage Pace from page 3 a schedule and how a college classroom is different than a K-12 classroom. After lunch, Penny Powell, communications spe cialist ofce of public relations SJR State, did a yoga mat stretch, made smoothies and discussed healthy eating and mindful habits. Financial services was the main topic on Thursday. Budgeting, how to write and balance a check book and nancial aid were discussed. Financial aid advisors ex plained what nancial aid is and how to use it. After lunch on Thursday, the girls were presented with awards from the college marking their successful camp completion. Anna Lebesch, executive director of SJRC Orange Park campus, said why SJR State wanted to team up with Pace to offer the boot camp. One of the reasons we wanted to do the college boot camp was to give the girls an opportunity to see that college is an op tion for everyone, Lebesch said. We also wanted to give them an inside look of what its like to be on a college campus and equip them with some of the tools they need to be successful. Girls are only in the Pace program for 12-15 months, so they dont have four years to prepare for college like other students do. The girls involved in the boot camp have been receptive to the program, according to Destani Shadrick, who has been the executive director of Pace Clay for three years. Weve had reports from the staff at the Pace Center that when the girls get back theyre ecstatic and telling everyone what Students from the Pace Center for Girls program listen to a guest speaker at the SJR Orange Park Boot Camp. they learned while theyve been here and have said they feel like they can go to col lege, she said. Jennifer Griner, the career and techni cal education advisor, thinks the program has been successful at teaching the girls the information they need to be successful. We developed this to be more handson to show all components of college, she said. In the classroom, they are engaged, even though they keep to themselves, I can really see it clicking so it makes me really happy. Pace and SJR State would like to con tinue offering the boot camp for girls in the future. SJR State provided the facility, instruc tors and swag bags containing t-shirts, pencils, notebooks and other tools for suc cess. Pace made the t-shirts and provided lunch for the girls. The main donation came from Baileys Health and Fitness which do nated 20 yoga mats for the wellness por tion of the boot camp. Pace opened in 2015 in Clay County and currently has 50 girls in the program. Girls are in the program for 12-15 months to get caught up academically and get a fresh start. Rodriguez said she plans on studying business marketing and insurance at SJR State and then transfer to the University of North Florida. West Nile Virus found in mosquitoes in Keystone Heights KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Samplings of mosquitoes collected in the Keystone Heights area have tested positive for West Nile virus, according to Clay County Mos quito Control. No human cases of West Nile virus have been conrmed in any area of Clay County. In response, Mosquito Control will bolster its control operations until mosquito levels have dropped to acceptable levels and no further positive samples are found. Response activities include frequent truck spray treatments, inspections of property, treatments of potential breeding areas, increased surveillance of adult mos quitoes and the distribution of educational materials and notications. Mosquitoes that carry West Nile are most active from dusk to dawn. Clay County and Keystone Heights ofcials urge residents to take the following precautions now and throughout the summer. Reduce mosquito breeding in your yard by eliminating standing water in gutters and items such as planters, toys, wheel barrows and old tires, reduce outdoor exposure at dawn and dusk, wear a longsleeved shirt, long pants and socks when outdoors, particularly at dawn and dusk and in areas with large numbers of mosqui toes, make sure window and door screens t tightly to keep out mosquitoes and use an insect repellent containing DEET.

24 CLAY TODAY July 26, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfntfb b f rrtt f rff brt rtb fbffffb By Wayne Hobbs UF/IFAS Environmental Horticulture Agent GREEN COVE SPRINGS In Florida land scapes we have the benet of viewing many amazing animal species. From insects to birds to mammals, there is a huge variety in our landscapes and we can work to at tract even more by providing them with plants that provide food and shelter. How ever, sometimes you may attract wildlife with special protections for good reason. Gopher Tortoises in Florida The gopher tortoise has been around for millions of years but has become a protect ed species in Florida in recent years due to loss of habitat from human encroachment. They prefer upland, dry habitats such as sandhills, scrub forest, or atwoods and dig extensive burrows under the surface. While these gentle reptiles may not seem important, they provide essen tial benets to hundreds of other wildlife species when everything from rabbits to rattlesnakes will use their abandoned bur rows for shelter. They also graze on many low growing plants and spread their seeds. An active burrow can be identied by a half moon shape and a clear area around the entrance. This is because the tortoises actively clean the opening near the burrow and if there is excessive debris, it is likely a sign the animal has moved on. However, they leave the burrow for use by other creatures. Sometimes it is possible to con fuse the round burrow of an armadillo with that of the tortoise. Protections for Tortoises Due to the loss of their habitat and their importance, homeowners cannot le gally move the tortoises if they are found or build a burrow on their property. Do not handle the tortoise or destroy the burrow, it is best to leave them alone to feed and allow space around the burrow, so they are not disturbed. The only time you can move the tortoise is if it is in the road and then it can only be moved off of the surface in the direc tion it was traveling. Never attempt to re locate the tortoise to another site. If you have other questions regarding a gopher tortoise on your property visit http://my fwc.com/wildlifehabitats/managed/gophertortoise/rules-and-regulations/. Additionally, if you know of a gopher tortoise that is in peril, such as a burrow in the direct path of development or one that has been hit by a car, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Wildlife Alert hotline at 1-888-404-3922. What You Can Do to Help There are still several things you can to benet these amazing creatures on your property. If you have a gopher tortoise, provide them with habitat by leaving un disturbed areas around the burrow, plant native plants, and keep pets, children, and lawnmowers away. If you have a decent amount of suit able property, you can also apply to be a tortoise relocation site, as some tortoises may need to be relocated by a licensed agent when their burrows are in an area slated for development and proper proce dures are followed. For more information on how to help, visit http://myfwc.com/ wildlifehabitats/managed/gopher-tortoise/ help/. n If you have any horticultural, agricul tural, 4-H, or family and consumer science questions, contact the University of Flori da/IFAS Clay County Extension Ofce on line at http://www.clay.ifas.u.edu or call by phone at (904) 284-6355.

At 12:04 a.m., the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce re ceived a call re porting a reckless driver at Park and Kingsley Avenues in Orange Park. The caller told police that a white Ford pickup truck was traveling southbound on Park Avenue. Lat er that day, a police ofcer was dispatched to a person calling for help near the Gar ber Automall on U.S. Highway 17. While en route, the ofcer was informed by dispatch that the vehicle had crashed at 1293 Gov ernors Creek Dr. When police arrived at the address, they saw Douglas Gerald Skinner, 33, dig ging through the front passenger seat of a white Ford pickup truck, the same truck police received a reckless driving report on. While digging through the truck, police asked Skinner to show them his hands. Skinner looked at police and then contin ued to dig through the truck. At this point, police pulled their guns out and ordered Skinner to show them his hands this time, he obliged. According to the police report, Skin ner might have been under the inuence of narcotics due to his erratic behavior and profuse amount of sweating. After placing Skinner in handcuffs, po lice made contact with the victim who was found in the vehicle, with a towel hidden to obscure her face. Although many details have been redacted from the report, its believed that Skinner abducted the vic tim at the Stay Suites of America on Wells Road in Orange Park. While it is not entirely clear, based on the police report, it appears that Skinner used a knife to abduct and threaten the victim. While battery was allegedly com mitted, its unclear if this knife was used to commit battery. After his arrest, Skinner was transport ed to the Orange Park Medical Center for medical clearance after the trafc crash. He was then transported to the Clay Coun ty Jail and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, adult false impris onment and manufacturing of a controlled substance. At press time, he remained in jail with a bond amount of $200,006 for two of the charges and no bond amount for one of the charges, meaning he will not be eligible to bond out of jail.

Forum from page 19 other, nding dissention not in the goals, but of the methods in reaching them. For example, everyone agreed that School Resource Ofcers should be placed in every school. Some, such as Peterson, felt that what was already in place was in motion and that rather than jumping the gun, everyone should wait until January to see what the legislature can and does do. Kerekes and Bullock, though, both agreed that the responsibility to put SROs in every school falls on the Clay County Sheriffs Of ce, not the school board. Kerekes said it is CCSOs job to protect the residents of the county and provide safety to all, which, in cludes children, staff and faculty at school. To close out the school board candidate discussion, Justice asked each member about term limits and whether or not they should be implemented into the Clay County School Board system. There is a State Con stitution Revision question on the ballot this fall asking voters to set school board term limits at two years. One of Gilhousens opponents, Lynn Hi rabayashi Chaffee, is not in favor of term limits. I am not in favor of term limits, Chaffee said. If voters are happy with what their public ofcials are doing, then public ofcials will be voted in and continue doing what theyre doing. If they dont like it, they wont [vote them back in]. Kerekes and Bullock agreed with Chaffee, citing that some elected ofcials are extremely valuable resources in their positions, both in knowledge and wisdom from serving for extended periods of time. By setting term limits, boards such as the Clay County School Board might lose valu able resources simply because a term limit says they cant serve again. Gilhousen spoke one word to answer this question: absolutely. Her other oppo nent, Travis Christensen, agreed. Yes I do and I actually went to two meetings in Tallahassee and spoke at the meetings of the Constitutional Revision Commission, and one or two meetings in Jacksonville that involved the same sub ject, to explain [why there should be term limits], Christensen said. Condon also favors term limits, citing her belief in remaining a true conservative, although she doesnt believe that decision should be made in the constitution. Peter son also said shes in favor of term limits. Following that question, Justice allowed According to the police report, the vic tim said this kind of behavior had been oc curring for the past three days. Bledsoe was arrested, transported to the Clay County Jail and charged with com mitting the offense of simple battery on a person 65 or older. Bledsoe is currently free on an undisclosed bond amount. Multi-state suspect booked in Clay GREEN COVE SPRINGS A Lake City man was extradited from the Putnam County Jail on July 23 to be ofcially booked in Clay County on multiple charges of burglary to a business and petit theft. The arrest of Christopher Randell 2 Dickey, 27, comes after a string of bur glaries that span across much of the Southeastern United States, with warrants for his arrest led from multiple agen cies. The rst of these burglaries took place in the early morning hours of September 11, 2016, when Dickey allegedly entered Stricklands Food Mart on Kingsley Lake Drive. Once inside, Dickey attempted to steal the cash register. He failed but man aged to steal the cash box attached to the bottom of register. It was estimated that this item was valued at $100. A cash box matching the description of this one was found in Dickeys residence after a search warrant was served by the Columbia Coun ty Sheriffs Ofce. On the same day, Dickey stole a cash register, food and tobacco products from the Country Convenience Store on U.S. Highway 17 in Green Cove Springs. On Oc tober 5, 2016, after a warrant for Dickeys arrest was led, a Clay County Sheriffs Ofce Detective contacted Dickey and at tempted to question him. Dickey refused to answer any of their questions. On March 31, 2017, when the afdavit for Dickeys arrest warrant was signed, it was stated that Dickey was still incarcer ated in the Columbia County Jail for mul tiple burglary charges led by multiple agencies. Two of those burglaries Dickey was in carcerated for occurred on September 13, 2016. At 1:15 a.m., police responded to an alarm at the Dominos Pizza on Bland ing Boulevard in Orange Park. It isnt clear what Dickey stole from this business, but according to the warrant, he attempted to steal money from the cash register and store safe. A few hours later, Dickey bur glarized the Vintage Market business on Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park where he stole a cash box. On July 23, 2018, Dickey was trans ported from the Putnam County Jail to the Clay County Detention Facility and booked on charges of burglary to business and pe tit theft. At press time, he remained in the Clay County Jail with bond set at $70,019.

The support of Speedo USA and my new Team Speedo USA teammates is going to be in credibly important as I train to reach my goals. I look forward to joining the ranks of the incredible athletes who have worn Speedo when its mattered most. Dressel bolsters Speedos position as swimmings most decorated brand, with more Olympic medals won in Speedo than all other swim brands combined. He joins an elite Team Speedo USA competitive ros ter that includes standouts Nathan Adrian, Missy Franklin, Ryan Murphy, Cullen Jones, Kevin Cordes, Katie Meili, Conor Dwyer, Hali Flickinger and Becca Meyers, who have won a combined 35 Olympic and Para lympic medals, and 43 FINA World Champi onships medals. Dressel will compete in the Speedo Fastskin line of competitive suits, goggles and caps, and train in the Speedo Turnz line of practice suiting. Caeleb is a star, plain and simple, said Speedo USA President John Graham. Our goal with Team Speedo is to always build a complete, well-rounded roster of worldclass swimmers who will embody Speedo in and out of the pool and connect with our fans across the country. The addition of Caeleb is certain to be part of that tradition, and we cannot wait to see how he grows and shines in our brand in the years to come. Dressel, 21, who won gold in two events at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Ja neiro (Mens 4-meter medley relay and 4-meter freestyle relay), reached superstar status during the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest.

Dressel from page 29 OP swimmer heads to USA Swim Nationals By Randy Lefko Sports Editor and Fike Swim Products INDIANAPOLIS FIKE Swim, an inno vator in competition swim products, is thrilled to announce the addition of ris ing distance star and U.S. National Cham pion Ashley Neidigh to its growing team of brand ambassadors, according to FIKE Swim Products press release on July 17. A former Bolles School and Auburn University standout, Neidigh, of Orange Park, is now a member of Indiana Uni versitys pro group and trains under Mike Westphal and assistant coach Caitlin Hamilton. Since Olympic Trials in 2016, she has been on a tear, dropping time in amounts that would make an age grouper jealous. Ashley is capable of shocking the world this summer, and Im just excited to be with her cheering her on. We are so lucky to have Ashley on our team. Shes more than an incredible swimmer, shes also one of the nicest people in the sport. She ts perfectly with what were building at Fike Swim. said Fike Swim founder, James Fike, who invented the weighted kickboard, called The Brick, after a stellar career as a swimmer at the University of Texas. In 2018, Neidigh has competed in the 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series campaign with her second 1500 freestyle title in June in Santa Clara. After winning this event in Mesa in April with a 16:38.24 and posting a 16:21.62 for fth at Mays Indianapolis stop, Neidigh went on to post the 13thfastest time in the world this year with her 16:17.43 a month ago. At the 2017 U.S. Open, Neidigh earned a podium nish in the 800 free. She knocked over ve seconds off her lifetime best, taking second place with an 8:34.71. The mile has always been my favor ite event, said Neidigh, who noted she is training at near 80K meters (about 50 miles) per week. I love the way it tests you mentally and physically over a long period. I truly get excited for it. Neidigh won her rst career U.S. Na tional Championship at the 2017 Win ter Nationals in Columbus, Ohio. There, swimming in a eld that included U.S. Na tional Teamer Mallory Comerford, Neidigh slashed ve seconds from her best time in the 500 to win in 4:34.47. She followed up her national title with another win in the mile with a time of 15:38.35, making her the 9th fastest woman of all time in the event. Five time Olympian Katie Ledecky has the world record in the 1,500 at 15:20.48 set in Indianapolis in May 2018. Ledecky holds world records also in the 800 free (8:04.79) and 400 free (3:56.46). While preparing for the 2018 U.S. Na tionals, 2018 Pan Pacic Championships and ultimately Tokyo 2020, she will also be working towards a Master of Mental Health Counseling degree at IU and has already begun helping Fike Swim test and roll out more of the innovative products it is becoming known for. I am so excited to be joining Fike Swim. I love that Fike shows a genuine love for the sport of swimming and is looking to help swimmers everywhere. I am very lucky to be a part of this team! added Neidigh. Ashley joins Sarah Gibson (Texas A & M buttery specialist with ve SEC titles, a gold medal in 4 x 100 medley re lay at 2107 World Swim Championships and a 15-time All-American for Aggies), Zane Grothe (Auburn grad, two-time SEC (1,650 free and 800 free relay plus part of 4 x 200 relay at 2017 World Champion ships bronze medal) with 12 All-American nods plus school record holder in 500, 1,00, 1,650 freestyle), Hellen Moftt (University of North Carolina backstroke and buttery specialist that qualied for 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials with numerous school records), Lizzi Smith (a RIO Para lympics silver and bronze medalist with two bronze medals from the 2013 World Championships), and Zac Stubblety-Cook (who joined FIKE in 2016 as a 17 year old Australian National Age Group record holder in the breaststroke and a recent qualier for the Australian team for the 2018 Pan Pacic Championships) on Fike Swims ambassador team. Grothe, also at the Santa Clara TYR Pro Swim Series, Grothe, now living in Mission Viejo, held off a hard charging Ri cardo Vargas and True Sweetser for the win, clocking a time of 15:18.43. Grothe has been as fast as 15:05.31 this sea son, done at the Indy stop in May (where he also won). Vargas and Sweetser both made a big push at the end, ultimately taking 2nd and 3rd in times of 15:19.34 and 15:19.86 respectively.

Im sure lots of players on this team and in the league have numerous titles among them. Pickett, 24, who had been traded from a two-year stint with the Seattle Reign after being drafted out of FSU in 2016 to Orlando for this season, was part of yet another tough match with Seattle that put both teams in win or go home situations with ve games remaining in the 2018 campaign. The two teams tied 0-0 in their rst regular season match June 3 in Se attle. Im pretty good friends with most of the girls from Seattle, said Pickett, who did get a friendly collision with a Seattle player late in the game. It was a friendly goodbye, but I got away with that one late in the game. For the season, Pickett, as a defender, has 14 games started in 16 contests with 1220 minutes played. In 10 games, Pickett Pickett from page 29 STAFF PHOTO BY RANDY LEFKO Orlando Pride defender Alanna Kennedy out jumps three Seattle players in front of goal. played the entire 90 minutes. North Carolina (Courage) is the top team with one loss and the rest of the standings; the two, three, four spots are all pretty close and pretty evenly talent ed, said Pride coach Tom Sermanni, 64, a former professional player and a former USA and Australian womens national team coach born in Scotland, Wins are critical from this point; losses will be hurtful. North Carolinas Courage sits atop the league standings at 14-1-4, with 46 league points to hold a commanding lead over Seattle (8-4-6) with 30 points, Portland Thorns FC (8-5-5) with 29 points and Or lando (8-6-5) with 29 points. Chicagos Red Stars sit just below Orlando at 7-4-7 with 28 points. Orlando travels to North Caro lina for a swing game on August 18. Against Seattle on Sat., July 21 in Or lando, the Pride scored rst in the rst half off a loose ball in front of the Seattle goal from defender Toni Pressley. Seattle would answer that goal in the second half in the 70th minute with a quick-tough goal that snuck past Pride goalie Haley Kopmeyer who had six saves to that point of the game. At 1-1 with nearly 10 minutes left in the game, Sermanni sensed a need for a change of attack and put Pickett in on the left side defensive formation. I was in the starting lineup because we were going with a different lineup, said Pickett. Sermanni did not like the way his Pride team was attacking the Seattle de fense and put Pickett in to move the ball forward. I thought we needed to change up the lineup to inject some speed into their end of the eld, said Sermanni. We know Carson can gallop up and down the lane all day and get forward to make her cross es. Her attacking ability would be an as set for us in those last 15 minutes. She made some really good runs, but we could not get our formation set up for a scoring shot. Sermanni lamented his teams inabil ity to transfer scoring opportunities into actual goals in the past few games with just 27 goals for versus 26 goals against. Orlando has just two games with three goals scored; one a 3-2 win over New Jer sey June 16, the other a 4-3 loss to North Carolina May 23. We know we have the ability to score as todays pre-game ceremony showed (forward Ali Krieger honored for 100th goal), said Sermanni. We have to be able to put the ball in the back of the net when we get the opportunity. For Pickett, who was recently featured in a LIFETIME documentary for her soc cer career playing without a left arm since birth, the pro life has been chock full of good experiences. For the upcoming kids who are think ing of playing at this level, the games speed of play and physicality is tremen dous, said Pickett. Knowing where you are going to go before you get to the ball is probably the biggest adjustment at this level.

Former Middleburg High pole vaulter Samantha Stelmaszek giggled when she was asked if track prac tice was tougher than her U.S. Army boot camp. Track practice was denitely tougher, said Stelmaszek, a 2016 Class 3A pole vault champion for the Broncos under head track coach Craig Martin. It was 10 times tougher. Track practice and the discipline sure did prepare me to do well in Army boot camp. Stelmaszek, who had earned a scholar ship to jump at Southern Wesleyan Univer sity in South Carolina, but the college life was not structured enough. I was doing things with my life that were not good, said Stelmaszek. I went from a 3.75 grade point average to just barely making 3.0 and my pole vaulting was a foot off my state jump of 11 feet, six inches. Stelmaszek said God called her to change. My parents and myself thought the U.S. Army might be a good idea because of the structure, said Stelmaszek. I was a little worried because Im kind of clumsy, but the whole environment was very good for me. Stelmaszek completed her basic train ing at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri on July 19 and is now assigned to Fort Sill in Oklahoma where she is in radar technician school for 40 weeks. I dont know if they know I am a pole vaulter, but I may tell someone and see if I can get back to that in the future, said Stelmaszek. I never would have ever thought I would t in the military, but so far, it has been good for me. Stelmaszek said the physical part of U.S. Army training was something she handled, but was surprised at the mental conditioning that was required. I did not understand some of the little things we did and why we did them, she said. As I went along, I gured out that I had to be smart all the time and keep my mental focus just like a tough track meet.

In photos below, Stelmaszek was multiple event track athlete at Middleburg and also for a year at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina where she won indoor and outdoor pole vault confer ence titles. Cycling from page 29 STAFF PHOTO BY RANDY LEFKO Luke Steinberg, left, with older brother David Steinberg in 2011 track action for Fleming Island High School, started cycling while at the University of Central Florida then became part of the U.S. Air Force team at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado. my new longest ride ever. Steinberg, 24, and a 1st Lieutenant in the Air Force based in Buckley Air Force Base in Denver as a astronautical engi neer, graduated from Fleming Island High in 2011, University of Central Florida in 2016 and commissioned into the Air Force thereafter in Colorado. For us in the military, the RAGBRAI is a ride of distance each day, but our mission is to be on the course support as we go, said Steinberg, noting the 46th year that military personnel from all services par ticipate. We are in it for the ride, but our mission is support along the way. We x ats, help people who fall back and, today, even xed a derailleur on a bike. Day one saw Steinberg and his team nish off a 44 mile trek with day two, Mon day, a 71.7 mile ride. The ride averages between 50 and 70 miles per day; a 428.1 mile total with 12,576 feet of climbing. Eight stops along the way include Onawa (start), Denison, Jefferson, Ames, Newton, Sigourney, Iowa city and Davenport (n ish) with a tire dip in the Mississippi River. In Denver, we have the Rocky Moun tains to train on, but this is hilly in a more consistent pattern, said Steinberg. On open roads, we average in the high 22-25 miles per hour pace, but most times its closer to 20 miles per hour.

Upcoming Public Hearings, and Regular Meeting The Board of Supervisors ( Board Ž) for the Two Creeks Community Development District ( District Ž) will hold the following two public hearings and a regular meeting: DATE: August 22, 2018 TIME: 6:00 p.m. LOCATION: Courtyard by Marriott, 610 Wells Road, Orange Park, FL 32073 The rst public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, to receive public comment and objections on the Districts proposed budget ( Proposed Budget Ž) for the scal year beginning October 1, 2018 and ending September 30, 2019 ( Fiscal Year 2018/2019 Ž). The second public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapters 190 and 197, Florida Statutes, to consider the imposition of o perations and maintenance special assessments ( O&M Assessments Ž) upon the lands located within the District, to fund the Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2018/2019; to consider the adoption of an assessment roll; and, to provide for the levy, collection, and enforcemen t of assessments. At the conclusion of the hearings, the Board will, by resolution, adopt a budget and levy O&M Assessments as nally approved b y the Board. A Board meeting of the District will also be held where the Board may consider any other District business. Description of Assessments The District imposes O&M Assessments on bene tted property within the District for the purpose of funding the Districts gene ral administrative, operations, and maintenance budget and providing the funds necessary to pay debt service on outstanding bonds a s re ected in the Districts debt service budget. A geographic depiction of the property potentially subject to the proposed O&M Assessme nts is identi ed in the map attached hereto. The table below shows the schedule of the proposed O&M Assessments, which are subject to change at the hearing: The proposed O&M Assessments as stated include collection costs and/or early payment discounts, which Clay County ( County Ž) may impose on assessments that are collected on the County tax bill. Moreover, pursuant to Section 197.3632(4), Florida Statut es, the lien amount shall serve as the maximum rateŽ authorized by law for O&M Assessments, such that no assessment hearing shall be held o r notice provided in future years unless the assessments are proposed to be increased or another criterion within Section 197.3632(4), F lorida Statutes, is met. Note that the O&M Assessments do not include any debt service assessments previously levied by the District and due to be collected for Fiscal Year 2018/2019. For Fiscal Year 2018/2019, the District intends to have the County tax collector collect the assessments imposed on certain de veloped property, and will directly collect the assessments imposed on the remaining bene tted property by sending out a bill pri or to, or during, November 2018. It is important to pay your assessment because failure to pay will cause a tax certi cate to be issued against the property which may result in loss of title, or for direct billed assessments, may result in a foreclosure action, which also may result in a l oss of title. The Districts decision to collect assessments on the tax roll or by direct billing does not preclude the District from later electing to coll ect those or other assessments in a di erent manner at a future time. Additional Provisions The public hearings and meeting are open to the public and will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Florida law. A copy of the Proposed Budget, proposed assessment roll, and the agenda for the hearings and meeting may be obtained at the o ces of the District Manager, located at Rizzetta & Company, 2806 North Fifth Street, Unit 403, St. Augustine, Florida 32084, (904) 436-627 0 ( District Managers O ce Ž), during normal business hours. The public hearings and meeting may be continued to a date, time, and place to be specied on the record at the hearings or meeting.

Upcoming Public Hearings, and Regular Meeting The Board of Supervisors (BoardŽ ) for the Rolling Hills Community Development District ( DistrictŽ ) will hold the following two public hearings and a regular meeting: DATE: August 14, 2018 TIME: 6:00 p.m. LOCATION: Rolling Hills Amenity Center 3212 Bradley Creek Parkway Green Cove Springs, FL 32043 The rst public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, to receive public comment and objections on the Districts proposed budget ( Proposed BudgetŽ ) for the scal year beginning October 1, 2018 and ending September 30, 2019 ( Fiscal Year 2018/2019Ž ). The second public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapters 190 and 197, Florida Statutes, to consider the imposition of operations and maintenance special assessments ( O&M AssessmentsŽ ) upon the lands located within the District, to fund the Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2018/2019; to consider the adoption of an assessment roll; and, to provide for the levy, collection, and enforcement of assessments. At the conclusion of the hearings, the Board will, by resolution, adopt a budget and levy O&M Assessments as nally approved by the Board. A Board meeting of the District will also be held where the Board may consider any other District business. Description of AssessmentsThe District imposes O&M Assessments on bene tted property within the District for the purpose of funding the Districts general administrative, operations, and maintenance budget. A geographic depiction of the property potentially subject to the proposed O&M Assessments is identi ed in the map attached hereto. The table below shows the schedule of the proposed O&M Assessments, which are subject to change at the hearing:The proposed O&M Assessments as stated include collection costs and/or early payment discounts, which Clay County ( CountyŽ ) may impose on assessments that are collected on the County tax bill. Note that the O&M Assessments do not include any debt service assessments previously levied by the District and due to be collected for Fiscal Year 2018/2019. For Fiscal Year 2018/2019, the District intends to have the County tax collector collect the assessments imposed on certain developed property, and will directly collect the assessments imposed on the remaining bene tted property by sending out a bill prior to, or during, November 2018. It is important to pay your assessment because failure to pay will cause a tax certi cate to be issued against the property which may result in loss of title, or for direct billed assessments, may result in a foreclosure action, which also may result in a loss of title. The Districts decision to collect assessments on the tax roll or by direct billing does not preclude the District from later electing to collect those or other assessments in a di erent manner at a future time. Additional ProvisionsThe public hearings and meeting are open to the public and will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Florida law. A copy of the Proposed Budget, proposed assessment roll, and the agenda for the hearings and meeting may be obtained at the o ces of the District Manager, located at 475 West Town Place, Suite 114, St. Augustine, Florida 32092, (904) 940-5850 ( District Managers O ceŽ ), during normal business hours. The public hearings and meeting may be continued to a date, time, and place to be speci ed on the record at the hearings or meeting. There may be occasions when sta or board members may participate by speaker telephone. Any person requiring special accommodations at this meeting because of a disability or physical impairment should contact the District Managers O ce at least fortyeight (48) hours prior to the meeting.
