Just in Time for America’s Birthday

2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Weigel Senior Center, 3916 Section Street, Middleburg, Fl.    Click to help find directions from your home or business


We can see from the Question & Answer above what once was taught to America’s children about the founding generation.  What about those good, wise and brave men who gave so much to make their country free?  In our current time, we have men & women in the highest offices of our land degrading America & apologizing for America –all over the world.  We have seen our top secrets divulged to the world, and many of us are concerned that we may be losing America as we have known our nation.


If you would like to hear the truth about America and her founding, specific to the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence, you will want to attend Frankie Anderson’s Crash Course on the American Revolution. 

During these- the fastest three hours in American Revolutionary War history- here are only a few topics Frankie will cover:

1.      Just what led the colonists to decide to become a free & independent nation?

2.      From the Declaration of Independence, you will study definitions and principles from the Bible within the Declaration of Independence:  self-evident truths, unalienable rights, why governments were instituted, etc.

  1. What about the lives, fortunes and sacred honor of the signers of the Declaration of Independence?
  2. American  military character at Valley Forge
  3. The contribution of an American patriot who waged guerrilla warfare in South Carolina
  4. The Patriot Pastors and their indispensable influence before and during the American Revolution
  5. Diversity—and-- Press One for English, during the American Revolution?  Are you kidding?


Attending this class-just in time for July 4th- will remind and inspire you to share with your family & friends the true, exciting, exceptional HIStory surrounding the birth of the United States of America.  You will be reminded of the reasons why you love America---You do not want to miss this Crash Course on the American Revolution!


Participants will receive a free copy of the Declaration & some class Notes/flyers.  Please bring a pen, a highlighter, and your Bible.   Also, high school and college students are welcome!


For more details, contact Sandy Scarborough at or call her at 904-282-1883.  Sign up is not required, but requested so that an adequate number of materials will be available.  Although there is no charge for the class, donations are accepted.    Class begins promptly at 2:00 PM. 


                    A Crash Course on the American Revolution—Hope to See you there!

As most of you know who own septic tanks in Florida, the only ones that now will pass are the above ground drain fields, even though yours is working fine;  I Was told that it would be best to contact your State Senator Here>

Sandy, Thanks for the great workshop on the Constitution.  It was most helpful, and affordable too. Thanks


I know many in Clay County own septic tanks and will be interested in contacting the new Governor concerning a new law that is basically Charlie Christ's  pork (pay backs) to a few select septic tank companies.  Following is the information (please pass it on to  those effected by this pork legislation)


New Statewide Septic Tank Evaluation Requirement Effective January 1


New Statewide Septic Tank Evaluation Requirement Effective January 1

-Residents urged to learn more, contact local State Legislators-

Florida Senate Bill 550 (thanks to Charlie Christs Legacy)  Please read more HEREand contact the New Governor HERE

Also please pass this on to others so they can help too.

Where are all the people (FCTP) of Clay not showing up at the county commissioner meetings telling them to stop the spending...Lets go
Comment by travis christensen on November 1, 2010 at 8:27pm has complete ballot summaries of state and local ballot items on it's front page.

this is how i see the charter amendments and the school referendum

1)in 2008 a charter amendment was made so that if florida ever legalizes gambling it will still be banned in clay unless a countywide vote is held. currently the charter says the bcc "may" hold a vote. the amendment on this ballot basically (very basically) changes the "may" to a "shall," meaning the bcc "shall" put the item on the ballot, not that they "may," if they feel like it, after they decide who is most important to be pandered to. I voted yes on this because I think that if something is prohibited unless there is a vote, then there must be a vote, otherwise it is simply a ban by another name and I don't think that is what the voters meant in 2008 when a little over half voted yes.

2)this one is complicated. IF amendment 1 (above) is passed, and IF florida legalizes gambling, this amendment would change the wording of the charter relating to the current ban on gambling and voting procedure, and replace it with verbiage that says gambling has been approved. Why all the interest in gambling? I dunno, unless florida is willing to break its contract with the seminole casinos I don't see casino gambling being approved anytime soon.

3)Clay has a 15 member charter review committee appointed every 4 years. if this amendment is approved then 5 alternates will also be appointed. i voted yes on this because it would eliminate some potential problems that were experienced by the last crc in that it was alleged that a commissioner placed a replacement in the crc so that he could vote against a specific issue.

I have to admit that neither of these 3 amendments is vital for Clay, however I think that each of them are an improvement and I don't see any negative side effects. There are some out there objecting to any charter revision on the basis that items should be legislated, our founders gave us republican form of government, yada yada yada. It's a county charter, the founding fathers of this document put it together in 1990, and our elected officials can bite me. perhaps some disagree but the voting will be over tomorrow night, and after that maybe we can get down to adventures in citizen lobbying.

school board item.

i voted yes on this, though i don't see a prayer of a chance of 50% of voters approving what looks like a tax hike. this is actually a continuation of an emergency tax that began 2 years ago. as it was explained to me the state had been whittling away at the money they give the schools and the local effort has also been going down, so school funding has been dropping for some time. State statutes allow the school board to pass an emergency assessment, but it has to be voted on after two years, hence this ballot item. I was told it is to be used for "operating expenses" that doesn't really explain what it is for except that it is not for building, it is general school money. the amount from tax payers has been 2.5 million, which according to a recent clay today piece comes to about 31 dollars a year for most homes. they also get some state matching funds for this, so if it does not pass it means clay schools lose 4.5 million, but clay taxpayers keep 2.5 and florida taxpayers keep 2. It really just depends upon whether you think the schools need to maintain their current funding or make do with a little less.
Comment by Cheryl Lominick on November 1, 2010 at 4:16pm
I'd love to have any input with explanations of why you're voting that way. For example, on the state constitutional amendment proposal some conservative groups recommend voting no to the extra homestead exemption for deployed military but other conservative groups are voting yes. When I asked about the difference, the explanation came back that this should NOT be something that changes our state constitution. Recognition and appreciation can be given another way. Changing the Constitution opens the door for other groups to come in later and demand equal treatment. Okay, that makes sense.

I'm new to Clay County and am not familiar with the Charter. I want to understand, in layman's terms, what we were voting for, what it will really cost us, and how it affects the quality of our lives.

A tea party e-mail might be better than a public blog for this--it's up to you how comfortable you are sharing here. Thanks for any help!

Has the Clay County Tea Party made recommendations on the last 3 items on the ballot--the Charter amendment regarding gambling, the charter amendment regarding filling vacancies, and the referendum on the school board tax? Thank you.
