Craig Airport - Are You Really Surprised?



In the past couple of weeks, Mayor John Peyton has come under a bit of fire from a group of Jacksonville residents.  Peyton in trouble by his boss (the citizens) has become commonplace. No matter where he chooses to jump, he seems to hit a landmine.

Downtown has, and will always, be the first to feel the effects of city government decsions, good, bad or indifferent.  The further a community is removed from the city's focus (sometimes the city having their eyes focused on a part of town is not a good thing), the less likely they are to care.  Meaning, 'if it doesn't affect me, what do I care' is the mentality.

I'm glad that this became an issue and has opened the eyes of yet another group of people in our city.  I wish it didn't have to happen at the expense of their community, but glad nontheless.

As an FSU alum, I can tell you the medical school is right on campus, not in Daytona. Not sure what you are referring to with that one.

He's refering to this one.



As a community-based medical school, the Florida State University College of Medicine provides third- and fourth-year clinical training at regional medical school campuses around the state through affiliations with local physicians, ambulatory care facilities and hospitals. At the Regional Medical School Campus – Daytona Beach, clerkship directors from the Volusia County area direct the students’ rotations in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, obstetrics-gynecology, psychiatry, geriatrics and emergency medicine. Additional community physicians serve as clerkship faculty in these and other clinical areas. The regional campus is located on the Daytona Beach Community College campus.

Ok, I totally forgot about that part of it. Thank you for the clarification.

Of course it didn't come to Jax. The Gators in this town wanted no part of it :)

I can clearly recall Gainesville complaining about a possible FSU Medical School in Jax.
They do the same everytime a Law School wants to open here as well.
