Rayner DMD 2301 Park Ave, Ste 101 Orange Park By Eric Cravey & Alex Wilson OAKLEAF Two separate threats of school shootings posted on social media last week led Clay County Sheriffs Ofce investigators to arrest two teenage girls on felony charges. Deputies arrested Alexandria Ashanti Summerset, 15, an Oakleaf High 9th grader, on Feb. 23 shortly after midnight. She faces charges of making the false report of the use of rearms in a violent manner, disrupting or interfering with school administration or functions and making written threats to kill or do bodily injury to others. By that afternoon, ofcers were led to Oakleaf Junior High student, Rosa To ledo, 13, who was arrested on the exact charges as Summerset. However, Toledos threats were made public at 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 23 when ofcials at the junior high reported receiving the threats via group text messaging. Ofcers found evidence that Toldeo posted a message that isnt safe you guys going to be the rst one dead (laughing emoji), states the CCSO report. Clay County ofcials held two press conferences on Feb. 22 aimed at allay ing fears and reinforcing the role that both the Sheriffs Ofce and Clay Coun ty School District will play each time a STAFF PHOTO BY ERIC CRAVEY School Superintendent Addison Davis is surrounded by his Cabinet, school board members and other administrators Feb. 22 in a press conference that addressed school shooting threats on social media.

Buehn Correspondent GREEN COVE SPRINGS Confronted with deadly issues that could affect employees, the Board of County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to take a good look at how the county should deal with its employees and their right to protect themselves. Commissioners also decided to stage a workshop that will look at a related issue dealing with mental health services. The issues came about in part due to the deadly shooting Feb. 14 in Broward County where 17 people at Marjory Stone man Douglas High School were killed by a former student. Gavin Rollins, Clay County commission chairman, put the item on the BCC agenda, saying he did so for discus sion for the idea of changing the employee handbook to allow employees to protect themselves by carrying concealed if they have a Florida concealed carry license. This measure was about allowing lawabiding employees with a concealed permit to exercise that right to protect themselves on the job, he said in an interview after the meeting. If one of our employees was ever faced with a horrible event, Id want them to be able to defend themselves. They deserve that right to self-defense on the rfr f SEE GUNS, 7

Equally overlooked have been the men who similarly lived private lives, just regular people working hard, raising families and building strong communities. But March is Womens History Month so an introduction of a few of Clay Countys women is in order. Aunt Net Grifs lived over at Sand Hill Lake where Camp Blanding sprawls now. Her brother was a Rebel and was killed in Olustee and buried there. He was killed during the war over at Olustee and buried there the same day. Now, Aunt Net had some age on her and it wasnt easy but at least once every year she packed up a lit tle cloth sack, put her hoe over her shoul der and struck out to tend his grave. She always stopped about half way, in Lawtey, to spend the night with her daughter. And she did this until she died. In 1866, Au gusta Jane Evans, noted Southern woman novelist, published a book called St. Elmo which struck a strong chord in the hearts and minds of Southerners of the time. The federal government banned the book. So, of course, it became a best seller. In the South, it became the fad to name everything from farms and buildings to pigs for the Italian Saint in a sort of subtle rebellion. A decade of martial law, reconstruction regulations and frequent swearing of loyalty oaths was taxing. There was a St. Elmo Hotel in Green Cove Springs but not until 1902 when the Morganza Hotel was purchased and renamed by Penelope Borden and Eliza Graves. One wonders if the northern proprietors were aware of the political connotations or were merely selecting a name that was widely recognized in the South. Were it not for the Civil War, Mary The Morganza Hotel in Green Cove Springs was renamed the St. Elmo in 1902 when it was purchased by Penelope Borden and Eliza Peters. Two women launching a business of this scope was not unknown in the early 1900s but it was still rare. There is more story here to be sure. Womens history is fragmented, elusive and enticing SEE MEMORIES, 12 By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS After postpon ing a discussion on term limits for elected county ofcials, members of the Charter Review Commission discussed internal is sues with the way their board is selected. Chair Amy Pope-Wells brought up the issue, which was that they had become aware that four members of the 15-person board were appointed by members of the Board of County Commissioners who do not live in the same district. Pope-Wells questioned whether or not this affected the spread of interests throughout the county, where the original task was for each com missioner to select three CRC representa tives from their own district. We pushed back and said we need you to do your job and pick your three people from your district only, Pope-Wells said. Nothing in [the] document requires this, it just says three from each district. Because it is not a requirement that the three representatives be from the com missioners own districts, but more of a suggestion, Pope-Wells was met with in difference among her colleagues. They ex plained that the board has seen signicant falloff, with members absent at almost ev ery meeting, so their goal is not to select people from their own districts, but more to nail down anyone who is willing to give their time and actually attend the monthly meetings. Pope-Wells said the commis sion wouldnt entertain any changes to the selection process on their end, but would consider shrinking the size of the boards membership. Due again to the fact that members are frequently absent, the Char ter Review Commission members seemed to think the number should stay where it is, especially with the requirement that eight members be present to be considered a quorum. I think we need 15 because every meeting I come to people are absent, said CRC member Ronnie Coleman. We had nine one time, so you need a balance at 15 to have enough to have a quorum. We have to have enough for a quorum or we cant do anything. Other Charter Review members spoke to a similar point, stating that they do not have a problem with the selection process or the number of members as long as they have the attendance to actually continue holding the meetings. Wade Vose, the at torney who works for the CRC, added that there is no requirement for the commis sioners to select members from their own district, though it had been talked about in other instances where appointments had been made outside the commissioners district. Vose said that no action had ever been taken to change what seems like a common practice when commissioners have trouble lling spots on the committee. I happen to believe that they do the best that they can to select within their districts, and I wasnt selected by my com missioner, said commission member Lar ry Kirkman. I agree in principle that we should have a sincere effort to have equal representation, but the way its written satises that requirement. I think the mat ter is settled. Though most members seemed to agree, there was some contention from the 12 people present, including that of former County Commissioner Ronald Stottler. If Im going to address whether or not this board were on is properly appointed Im going to address it at the ballot box when the county commissioners run, because there is absolutely no excuse not to be able to nd three people out of 20,000, Stottler said. I still cant imagine how a county commissioner whos really interested in his job could not nd three people, I think that a lot of people would be honored to do it. On so many of these boards lately, half of the members never had a clue about how county government runs. No action was taken on an attempt to change the appointment process, and the committee agreed that there was little need to take any future action on the is sue at their meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for March 19 at 7 p.m. where CRC members will continue discussions on term limits for constitutional ofcers and elected county ofcials.

A pa rade of kilts and instruments, marching in military fashion, made a path through the bustling crowd. The Scottish Games had come to Clay County. On Feb. 24, an eclectic group of people came together, forgetting their differences in favor of celebrating their similarities. Their kilts sported a variety of colors, the different tartans marking the wearers clan. Yet while they divided themselves by family, they united together in honor of their Scottish heritage. Here at the games, our goal is to pro mote Scottish culture, heritage and educa tion, said Audie Gibson, president of the Jacksonville Scottish Highland Games. From 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Clay County Fairgrounds hosted the 23rd Annual North east Florida Scottish Games and Festival. Vendors selling kilts and clan accessories set up shop next to kitchens serving tradi tional Scottish cuisine. Yet, not everything was entirely au thentic, and the air of the fair took on a distinctly Scottish-American tone. The smell of haggis, a traditional Scottish dish comprised of sheeps organs, oatmeal, bar ley and spices, mingled with the scent of funnel cake and nachos. Meanwhile, the music of live traditional folk music du eled with the modern Celtic punk band the Dropkick Murphys playing over the sound system. While the Scottish Games host a huge variety of acts and events, such as the competitive sports theyre known known for, the highlight of this years games didnt seem to be any particular game or band. Instead, the most popular feature was also the newest: a whole tent dedicated to beer. Gibson said that hes been working for six years to get legislation through to allow it. Its the rst time theres been alco hol [at the Scottish Games] here in Clay County, but there are restrictions on it, said Gibson. You cant walk around the fair with beer in your hand, you have to stay in the tent. The beer tent operated on a poker chip system, where buyers would pay for chips at one booth, and then trade that in for beer at another. There were at least three ofcers and a number of volunteers moni toring the tent and checking IDs at the entrance, and throughout the day the tent stayed packed. According to Gibson, the beer tent sold rfnt STAFF PHOTOS BY ALEX WILSON A parade marched through the fairgrounds at midday, sporting traditional Scottish instruments. at least 10 kegs between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., something that had him and other fair administrators excited. Due to the success of the tent, Gibson said that next years games will likely have two tents, in order to double the access and the prots. For many of the participants, however, the Games are more than just a friendly get-together or competition. Instead, the event provides a medium for preserving their heritage and passing it down to the next generation. About 47 clans set up booths under the shade of the main arena, where they created a place to meet and educate themselves and others about their clan histories. Grant Baker of Jacksonville manned the Clan Davidson stand. Hes been partici pating in the games for over 20 years, but hes only worked the clans stand for four. Its a really a form of teaching. We have a lot of people who are rst timers who are wanting to nd out more about their heritage, said Baker. After the closing ceremonies, only a small crowd stayed to hear the last of the bands. The rest headed home, weary and ready to hang up their kilts. Yet, theyll be back next year. Another clan representa tive, Corey Patterson of Clan MacLaren, felt the games arent just about educa tion, but also camaraderie and a little bit of comfort. Were here as a meeting place for any clan member whos in the area. Every year, they have a place to go and meet old friends, said Patterson. And its also a place just to hang out in the shade.

By Mitch Perry FloridaPolitics.com K athy Castor was part of a six-member group of Democratic members of Congress visiting Cuba over the past few days, but the delegation shrank to ve this week when meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro. I came back to Tampa on Tuesday, Castor said in a recent phone call before the rest of her colleagues vis ited Cuban leader. It was Castors fourth trip to the communist island since 2011, but she has never met with either President Castro or his brother, the late Fidel Cas tro, in part because she says she wants to turn the page. Im focused on the future, and I think the Tampa area community is as well, she says, expressing regret that she didnt meet up with Miguel Diaz-Canel, the rst vice president of the Council of the State Diaz-Canel is expected to succeed Castro when a transfer of power takes place in April. The 56-year-old is the rst ofcial who does not belong to the revolutionary old guard, since he was born after the Cuban Revolution took over in the 1950s. Castor is the rst Florida member of Congress to call for the end to the now nearly 60-year-old Cuban economic boy cott after visiting the island in 2013. Although considered a bold move in comparison to previous Cuba visitors like former Mayor Dick Greco and Representa tive Jim Davis, the conditions in Tampa had paved by activists and later members of the business community in Tampa who have embraced strengthening relations between the two communities. The Greater Tampa Chamber, for example, has led several delegation trips in recent years, and wholeheartedly sup ported the concept of bringing a Cuban consulate to Tampa, an idea that died with President Donald Trump reversing the rapprochement during the Barack Obama era. Castor said part of her trip was to learn more about the mystery that contin ues to surround the strange symptoms of illness experienced by at least two dozen 4 CLAY TODAY March 1, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Opinions The views and opinions expressed on this page are those of the authors and do not necessarily reect the opinion of the Clay Today.

Although childrens brains are still developing, and they cannot fully un derstand the consequences of their actions, our criminal justice system treats some of them like grown adults. They receive adult punishments that will forever diminish their employment, educational and housing oppor tunities. Florida tries more children as adults than any other state; almost all are transferred to the adult criminal justice system at the sole discretion of prosecutors, without the opportunity to even ask a judge to review the de cision. Though any child, regardless of age, can be prosecuted as an adult in Florida, most cases involve children who are 14 to 17 years old mainly high schoolers. These children should be learn ing how to drive, applying to colleges, or worrying about who theyll take to prom. They should not be in the adult criminal justice system, where the pri mary goal is punishment not rehabili tation. Children should be kept in the juve nile justice system where they belong so they can benet from education, counseling and other programs that will make them more likely to succeed. Jails arent equipped to provide these programs, and they particularly dont offer adequate education. The Southern Poverty Law Center, based in Montgomery, Alabama, released a re port this week titled Destined to Fail: How Florida Jails Deprive Children of Schooling. The devastating ndings show how children have limited or no access to their legal right of schooling when they are housed in adult jails. In adult jails, children are some times held in solitary connement for up to 23 hours a day and are denied access to education. Some children re ceive nothing more than worksheets sometimes without a pen or pencil to complete them. Children who go to adult jails are less likely to receive a high school di ploma further limiting their job op portunities and chances for nancial stability. Children tried as adults are also more likely to reoffend than their peers in the juvenile system. This threatens public safety and increases incarceration costs for taxpayers. Especially troubling is the dispar ity in the rate of adult prosecutions for JAIL, 5 Texting bill moves to House oor, stalls in Senate TALLAHASSEE In response to House Bill 33 being stalled in the Senate Appro priations Committee, bill co-sponsorRep. Emily Slosberg(D-Delray Beach) offers the following statement: Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for teenagers. Primary enforcement of texting and driving laws de crease fatalities most signicantly among teenagers. HB 33, which I sponsored with Representative Jackie Toledo (R-Tampa), makes texting while driving a primary of fense and gives law enforcement the tools to do their job. Deaths caused by texting while driving do not discriminate no matter your age, gender, nationality, socioeconomic sta tus, or religion. We must all do our part to prevent the endless pain and suffering that thousands of Floridians feel every day. Everyone has the power to tip the scales of change in favor of justice and safety, rather tipping them in favor of death and heartache.

March 1, 2018 CLAY TODAY 5 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Cuba from page 4 U.S. diplomats station in Havana. The symptoms were rst reported in late 2016 but not disclosed by the State Department until August of 2017. In response, Washington expelled 17 Cuban diplomats from Washington, and ordered most of its own diplomatic personnel from Havana back to U.S. soil and limited travel there to emergency personnel. The Castro government condemned the purported attacks and denied any involve ment but later called into question the integrity of the incidents. A report by U.S. medical experts from the University of Pennsylvania, published last week in the Journal of the American Medical Assn., concluded the diplomatic personnel suffered brain injuries without evidence of head trauma. The Americans reported a range of symptoms including hearing loss, headaches, dizziness, nausea and loss of concentration. Initially, the U.S. government blamed the symptoms on sonic or acoustic attacks but has since backed off those labels. The Penn group could not determine a cause, saying that any sensory phenom ena was of unclear origin. Briefed by intelligence ofcials, Cas tor reviewed the Penn study and said its clear that it was no sonar or acoustic attack, but agreed something did happen to the diplomats. Castor doesnt believe the Cuban government had any motivation for the incident, since it has only frayed the improving relations between the two na tions, which began to thaw with Obamas diplomatic breakthrough in December 2014. If not Cuba, though, she says its un clear who would have a motive. Some rogue element? Some other country? There simply isnt any evidence to point in any one direction or another, she said, adding that she hopes U.S. intel ligence agencies can ultimately learn the truth. While critics of U.S. outreach to Cuba (such as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio) are continuing to criticize human rights viola tions of the Castro government. Obama overtures were fruitless since the Cuban government has continued such activities, they say. But Castor has always championed the loosening of regulations that allow the Cuban people to become more entrepre neurial. However, in her recent excursion, Castor saw less growth in small business movement. After talking to some small business owners over the past several days, Castor said: It really appears that the economic reforms on the island have stalled. According to Castor, one factor hurting the Cuban people is that the government continues to sustain two separate cur rencies one for everyday Cubans, and another for visitors. Last fall, the Trump administration rescinded one of the most signicant Obama-era changes regarding people-topeople visas for Americans to travel to Cuba. The Obama White House had expanded those categories, allowing U.S. travelers for the rst time to book a ight online to Havana, buy people-to-people visas at U.S. airport counters, then go on their trip. Now, travelers need to be accompa nied by a U.S.-based tour guide, who must ensure they engage in approved activities that help the Cuban people. Thats put a sizable dent in the number of visitors who now travel to Cuba from the U.S., Castor said. n Mitch Perry has been a reporter with Extensive Enterprises since November of 2014.

While black children make up only 22 percent of the states high school student population, they accounted for 64 per cent of children sent to the adult criminal justice system last year. It is time for our lawmakers to in tervene. The Legislature is considering bills that would begin to at least limit the number of children who are prosecuted as adults. Senate Bill 936 and House Bill 509 would set age parameters and reduce the offenses eligible for adult transfer. The proposed legislation would also imple ment judicial oversight and provide chil dren a way to return to juvenile court. We cannot throw away the futures of our children and our communities.

Emily Slosberg State House District 91 Delray Beach Former school superintendent: arm homeless veterans to protect schools As I sit and listen to the TV news as well as read the printed news, my heart breaks for the families directly and indirectly involved. That is pure emotion. When I take a step back and force my brain to act, a different image begins to emerge. Either way my prayers and heart felt pain for all is real. So many pundits are extoling the same remedies. These are the same offerings we have heard every time a tragedy, such as this, has occurred. We must ban cer tain types of rearms, raise the buying age, expand mental health criteria and designate more gun free areas. The only people affected by these rules, if legislated, are law abiding persons. When was the last time a gun toting criminal from the inner city had a mental evaluation and/or age check before handling a lethal weapon. Outlawing the bump stock will be a feel-good move for legislators but it will not guarantee a safe area. Unfortunately, I view this as theater and a rerun at that. Letters from page 4 Do these well-meaning youth realize that even if they get all they are asking for it would take months, at least, to enact. Lets look at some practical possible remedies. Why not put mobile homes on campuses and hire homeless veterans, fully vetted, to live there. They would be required to be on armed, active duty for at least one hour before and one hour after regular school hours. Hire other well qualied, preferably former police or military trained personnel to supplement the protective force during the school day. These people would not have to live on campus unless they and the board desired. As I heard Dan Bongino state, train willing educator/administrators to handle rearms. This could be done within a month. County wide school districts, as in Florida, should be able to enact this within a very short time. States that have school districts within every town or city may need a little more time to decide how to pro-rate the nancial end. It can be done. And it can be done much faster than trying to pass legislation. This would also give plenty of time to reach quality agree ment on what laws should be enacted as opposed to knee-jerk political reactions. I sincerely pray we nd a safe solution. I wish the people marching on the capitol a safe and productive mission. Hopefully, this horric incident will motivate our youth to learn and understand the com plexities of sound government. And that they follow the path of the young man, Patrick Neville, the Columbine survivor who become involved with government. Ann B.

If they can carry safely they should have that right. Rollins also called for a workshop to review mental health services in Clay County. Since the Broward County killings, many people have cited mental health is sues as a leading problem in the rash of tragic shootings that have plagued the country in past years. The goal is to make sure we have a comprehensive, collaborative approach to dealing with the mental health crisis, Rol lins said. Rollins said he actually was looking at the concealed carry issue before the Broward County shooting. He had noticed that Okaloosa County, Florida had recent ly changed its employee manual to allow those with a concealed weapon permit to carry at work if they chose. In the mean time, the tragic shooting in Broward Coun ty occurred. I still think this is an appropriate dis cussion for this time because it goes to the heart of protecting our citizens especial ly our law-abiding citizens, he said, add ing that his thought would be to change the countys human resources policy to allow for those who lawfully have a concealed weapon permit to carry in the same man ner that any other citizen does. That wouldnt give them any additional privileges. It wouldnt add to what theyre allowed to do. It would simply bring it in line with what other citizens are currently allowed to do, he said. As an illustration, Rollins used the idea of a county librarian who might have a con cealed weapon permit. That person would not be able to carry their weapon to work in the library, but a citizen with a permit simply visiting the library would be able to carry their weapon. Other counties and municipalities have also started changing their rules, he said. Offering his input, Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels said carry laws are basi cally covered by Florida statutes, and care must be taken not to supersede those stat utes. Daniels also said that if the county decided to move in the direction of allow ing employees to carry in the workplace, he would want to know how many people were talking about and that it would have to be on a voluntary basis, with prop er training involved. I like the idea that were trying to do something proactive and if the Clay County Sheriffs ofce can assist in that endeavor then youve got my commitment and Im on the record with that, he said. Current policy is somewhat unclear, county staff members said. Its interesting because in our policy it has disciplinary action but it does not say that you can or cannot carry, said Stepha nie Kopelousos, county manager, adding that basically, state law allows employees to keep their weapon in their cars in the parking lot. County Attorney Courtney Grimm in dicated that some of the problems with looking at a different policy would deal with mechanics, including such things as re and rescue employees and what would they do with weapons if they had to respond to an emergency. Things to be con sidered would include would it be all right for the weapons to be in a county vehicle, she said. Both county commissioners Diane Hutchings and Wayne Bolla said they have carry permits (as does Rollins). Hutchings said she was not yet comfortable actually carrying and had talked to the sheriff about whether he would be willing to do training and evaluations for safety purposes. Hutchings said she was generally in favor of a new policy but wanted to make sure it was well thought out. We need to plan, she said. Bolla also said he thought planning was important, and that there could be some pitfalls in the issue. Its going to take some study. I sort of have a rule of thumb if I feel like I have to carry a gun I dont go there, he said. Commissioner Mike Cella said his main question would be how many employees would be interested in carrying, or would want the issue pursued. Most of them that have already talked to me answered in a negative fashion (that) they did not want us to pursue that, he said. However, Rollins said he believed it was a fundamental right for the employees. Its not necessarily that a ton of em ployees want it. I believe its such a fun damental right that they should have that opportunity. But I denitely think that a lot of the points brought up are good in terms of making sure that we do it the right way, he said. In the end, commissioners requested staff to research the idea and bring back pol icy considerations for the commissioners to discuss. rfr rfn tfb f

Every one you meet has things that have hap pened, are happening, or will soon happen in his life that he will not understand. The wonderful thing is that God knows every issue or problem that you face, and He will provide you with the strength to prevail in every situation if you will trust Him. The Apostle Paul faced many prob lems. The one that seemed to trouble him most was his thorn in the esh. He said he asked God three times to remove it from him, but the Lord did not do it. Instead of taking it away, the Lord said to Paul, My grace is sufcient for you. Then Paul quoted the words that God gave him, which sustained him in dealing with this thorn. Paul said the Lord told him, My grace is sufcient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. From this, the Apostle could say, When I am weak, then I am strong. Paul came to this understanding: When I am weak in human strength, then I am truly strong (able and powerful) in divine strength. Paul learned the lesson that all of us need to learn God will bring you through every hardship! It may not be exactly the way you want it to happen, but He will do it in His own way. God allows us to experience our own weakness so that He can reveal His strength. He wants us to depend on His great grace, not on our own ability. Referring to escape from trials, some one said, God will pull you through if you can stand the pull. And we can stand it. We can deal with anything! Because His grace is sufcient for us in all things. (Scriptures: 2 Corin thians 12; Isaiah 43:1-2) Dont quit! Stand rm! You will prevail by His Grace! www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org By Jennie Ritter Correspondent KEYSTONE HEIGHTS More than 240 hiking enthusiasts raised some $5,000 last weekend to help maintain the Flor ida National Scenic Trail as part of the 10th Annual I Did A Hike event hosted by the North Florida Trail Blazers. This years event held Feb. 24 was on an 11-mile section of the Florida Trail that goes through the natural sandhill communities of Camp Blanding Military Reservation and Mike Roess Gold Head State Park north of Keystone Heights. The Florida National Scenic Trail, also referred to simply as the Florida Trail, is a continuous hiking trail cover ing approximately 1,400 miles through the state of Florida, starting down south in Big Cypress National Preserve between Miami and Naples and con tinuing up into the panhandle to Santa Rosa Island near Pensacola Beach. There were people from all walks of life and all levels of hiking experience who ventured along the trail Feb. 24. Some hikers got a ride back to base at various take-out points and some walked the entire 11 miles of the trail. When I retired from the military I found out that one perk was a free lifetime pass to all Florida state parks. rffrf This opened up a whole new world of dis covery as I started reading about and visit ing the numerous parks and trails we have in this state. I took up hiking as a way to just get some exercise. Hiking does not require any complex skills or equipment. You just walk it is that simple. In the few years that I have been hiking in Florida, I have learned more about Floridas history and people than I ever did the past 30 years I have lived here. What was once just a way to get some exercise has turned out to be a rich expe rience of history, culture and community. Hiking has also given me a deep, personal connection with nature that I have never quite experienced before. I Did A Hike started at a Florida Trail entrance off State Road 21 in Camp Bland ing. We hiked 5.9 miles until crossing SR 21 into Gold Head State Park where we continued another 4.9 miles to our end ing point at the recreation building in Gold Head. The scenery along the way was roll ing sandhills, marshes, ravines and scrubs. We passed by four lakes Magnolia Lake, Lowry Lake, Sheeler Lake and Little Lake Johnson. One interesting and unique bit of his tory I learned about this particular area is that Magnolia Lake was once called Mag nolia Lake State Park. Starting in 1957, it was a segregated state recreational facility for African Americans. It was paired with Mike Roess Gold Head Park which was for white people only at the time. During the early 1960s, Magnolia Lake was one of about six segregated parks for African Americans in Northeast Florida. In the late 1970s it was closed and once again became part of Camp Blanding. To day, there are no signs marking the spot, just some remnants of buildings among the trees. Another interesting historical fact is that Gold Head State Park is one of Flor idas rst state parks. It was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, an organization started by Presi dent Franklin D. Roosevelt to combat un employment during the Great Depression. The park is in an area known as the central ridge of Florida where a deep ravine with springs issuing from its sides bisects the area and forms Gold Head Branch. The SEE HIKE, 10

Ranging from massive wee vils to some species barely visible to the naked eye, we have a massive diversity of creepy crawlers and some hardly even get noticed. However, some of these smaller insects become very noticeable when they invade our homes and begin to feed on our walls and furniture. What are powderpost beetles? Powderpost beetles are a group of insects that can infest homes but are usu ally very small and their damage is usu ally found before we see the adults. This is because the adults typically lay their eggs on the surface of a wood product and the larvae can hatch and feed within furniture, timbers, baseboards or ooring for several years depending on conditions and species. What makes this issue even worse is their small size and that they often ll their feeding galleries with their waste, known as frass. The only sign is often small round holes in the wood until adults mature from the larvae and start the process again. However, the larvae will be continually eating. There are several species of powerpost beetles in Florida and if you nd an adult, your local UF/IFAS Extension Ofce would be happy to help identify the pest. For more information about some of the likely species you may encounter, visit http:// edis.ifas.u.edu/ig119. Powderpost Protection The best way to protect against powderpost beetles is prevention, which comes from making sure they do not enter through wood products brought into the home. Check unnished lumber, furniture and ooring for any boring holes before installation. Be very wary of antique or second-hand wood furniture. Another important step is to apply a nish, such as paint or varnish, to any wood in the home as the beetles only lay their eggs on unnished surfaces. If adults emerge from nished lumber, it means they were inside of the wood before it was nished or laid their eggs inside of holes PHOTO BY JAMES CASTNER, UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA An adult Anobiid powderpost beetle. from previous infestations. Removing infested wood can be an option as well. If you see small, round emergence holes in a piece of trim or furniture, remove it and replace with an un-infested piece. Chemical controls can also be effective in treating the beetles if applied properly. Look for a surface-applied product that is labeled control of beetles indoors and apply to infected wood as directed on the label. This can kill adults as they chew their way out of the material or when they go to lay their eggs. To get good penetra tion of the products into the wood, you may have to sand off any nish. Finally, another option in treating powderpost infestations is to work with a commercial pest control company. They will have access to some products you may not and can fumigate a structure if needed. This can be especially helpful if they beetles are mainly within walls and the homes structure. n If you have any horticultural, agricul tural, 4-H or family and consumer science questions, contact the University of Florida/IFAS Clay County Extension Ofce online at http://www.clay.ifas.u.edu or call by phone at (904) 284-6355.

The Civil War was over and Martin Padgett, called Bud by friends and family, was making his way home when he stopped at the Muse family farm to water his horse. It must have been love at rst sight because within a short time they were married and soon raising two children. Then Bud began missing home and kin but was concerned he might not be welcome because he left so abruptly. He just upped and joined a contingent of Confederate soldiers headed north without a word to anyone. It wasnt until dark when he never showed up for dinner that his brothers tracked down someone who had seen him with the soldiers in a pieced together uniform. So, he wrote a letter asking if he would be welcomed. His family had given him up for dead so they were ecstatic to have Bud and his family home again in Long Branch, just west of Green Cove Springs. Bud and Mary were enthusiastically welcomed and it wasnt long before four more children joined one of Clay Countys pioneer families. Arrests from page 1 threat is received. The threats began on Feb. 21 with a social media post alleging an imminent at tack from a student at Oakleaf High, one week after 17 people where gunned down at Broward Countys Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. My cousin has a bad disorder and hes planning on shooting Oakleaf High School because he saw the other shootings and plus the students there dont talk to him, said one of the posts. Student and Teach ers please Stay home and Stay Safe Thurs day February 22 [sic]. Forty percent of the 2,452 students at Oakleaf High School did not attend school on Feb. 22 and attendance had not re turned to normal levels last Friday either. A second post was made the same day, al leging that the same cousin was just wait ing for everyone to be back. The police report also mentions a text message sent to multiple people on Feb. 22, but the con tents of this message were redacted from the police report. School Superintendent Addison Davis, anked by district staff, administrators and law enforcement from Orange Park, Green Cove Springs and the Florida High way Patrol, reiterated the districts policy of zero tolerance at a 10-minute press con ference outside the high school on Feb. 22. He said every threat will be punished to the extent of the districts code of conduct. As a community member, as an educa tor, as a parent, no student, no teacher, no staff member should experience this tragic act as it is unacceptable for anyone to penetrate the sanctity of a school, Davis said. It is essential that I assure that each school workplace be a respectful and safe work environment for all all students where students can learn, where teachers can teach and employees can support the robust learning conditions that lead to our emotional and social growth for all of our students. Despite the press conference, the dis tricts attempt to be proactive in the wake of last Wednesdays shooting, some parents are not convinced enough has been done. Beatrice and Jeremiah Bredeson are parents of a ninth-grade son at Oakleaf High who stayed home worried about the shooting threat. However, they came to the press conference to meet Davis and share their concerns. At rst, we were worried and scared it could happen anywhere, Beatrice said. What bothers me more than anything is they say that theyre working on actively making the school safer, but thats such a general response. I can say I added one more police ofcer and I made it safer. Why dont you give us some information so we can make an informed decision than us just guessing what youre doing, Jeremiah said. He said he is open to backpack search es or metal detectors as a way to make the school safer. Regardless, he is seeking clear information on what safety measures are put in place. A show of force is one of the rst things you do me being in the military. When you do a show of force, you de-escalate the situation and if that doesnt work, you do other things, but why not inform the par ents about what steps youre taking, then you might have had more people show up for school today, Jeremiah said. In his Feb. 22 press conference, Sheriff Darryl Danielss rhetoric mirrored the larg er narrative about school safety and gun control that is currently moving through the country. While he didnt clearly state it, Daniels stopped short of endorsing the arming and training of school personnel with rearms. Ill speak on behalf of the Florida Sher iffs Association, which is entertaining the thought of helping to train teachers and administrators on the proper use of deadly force and gun safety, Daniels said. There may be a time in the very near future where state funding is made available for us to do that, and teachers and administra tors will be carrying guns in schools. Daniels said that while cooperation from law enforcement would help initiate this movement, the decision to arm school employees ultimately remains a school board decision. He also said that while there is a dialogue between himself and Superintendent Davis, the subject of arm ing school personnel has not come up yet. Daniels went on to emphasize the im portance of the parents role in this con versation. Its time for parents to be parents. Its time for parents not to be friends with their children, said Daniels. These are real life situations that are going on across the country and in the state of Florida. As parents, we set the parameters about oth er things, its time to set parameters about things like this. Meanwhile, Davis said the Broward County shooting has created a heightened sense of awareness about school safety here in Florida and across the country. Like Daniels, Davis said there may be copycat threats of mass shootings within the schools and on social media. The community needs to know that Clay County District Schools is prepared and as it may be frustrating, know that we stand ready and that we stand united. We will take every call seriously. We will take every social post seriously in order to problem solve and create the best and the safest environment for our learners and our employees.

In the months since that turmoil, the school has transformed into Orange Park Performing Arts Academy International with a new administration and new stu dents. It opened as a new private school in August. On Jan. 25, OPAAI held a ribbon-cut ting event on its Kingsley Avenue campus where students and their families could, for the rst time, take a look at the schools new library, which the school called The Lions Den. Kennedy Brown, a seventh-grade stu dent at St. Johns Country Day whose grandmother is the music teacher at OPAAI, spoke about the importance of li braries at the event. Learning to appreciate reading is a way to better yourself, Brown said. Li braries can serve as the place where stu dents can enjoy reading a book, where they can explore subjects of anything they can imagine and it can be a quiet place where students can study, relax and dream about the future. Alesia Ford-Burse, the schools board president and founder, attended the open ing of The Lions Den and sees the library as another step in the schools pursuit of academic greatness. In ve-to-10 years, I really believe that we will be one of the top schools in the county, Ford-Burse said. Thats the goal and what we are looking for to make that happen is a strong reputation and more community support. Since its new beginning, Ford-Burse believes the biggest difference in this pri vate school and its previous life as a char ter school to be the schools strong and supportive staff and the families who be lieve in what OPAAI is trying to do. More literally, the previous charter school had to be sponsored by the school district. Because OPAAI is a private school, it nds itself having more freedom in how the Florida curriculum is taught, with a heavy inuence on the arts, but it also nds itself being paid for by private funds. Ford-Burse said the hardest thing about opening a private school is the nancials behind it but according to her, the school still received help from the district nan cially specically, in the Exceptional Stu dent Education, or ESE. Floridas state voucher program allows students and the families of students who no longer wish to attend a public school to receive nancial aid to help pay enroll ment in a charter or private school. OPAAI students use not only this state voucher program, but also the McKay, Step-Up, Gardiner and AAA scholarships to help pay OPAAI tuition, which is $7,000 a year. Currently, OPAAIs enrollment is just under 100 students, with 11 new children enrolling this past month. OPAAI offers kindergarten through sixth grade. Students have access to a gymnasium, a performing arts stage, a library, computers in many of the classrooms and a dance studio. One of the reasons for OPAAIs success, according to Ford-Burse, is the new head master, Kelly Kenney, who has been with OPAAI since July when it transformed into a private school. She brings to OPAAI 29 years of work in education and an infec tious degree of enthusiasm, both behind the mic and in front of it when talking with students and families alike. I am very passionate in what I do and I believe in the vision and want to see the children have a choice and be successful, Kenney said. By infusing performing arts with high academic standards, children can succeed. Kenney grew up with an arts education. She began playing viola in junior high, a STAFF PHOTO BY WESLEY LEBLANC Rev.

18 CLAY TODAY March 1, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Randy Lefko Sports Editor ORANGE PARK Orange Park High senior guard Ty McBride followed two layups from teammates John Abate and DMarre Crad dock that tied the Raiders region 1-6A quarternal game at 60-60 with less than two seconds on the clock in what was to be a spinetingling comeback against Ribault High School. Did not happen. Ribault High guad Devon Matthews took the ensuing inbounds pass going right to left in front of the Raiders basket then lofted a long pass-throw for a nal attempt of avoiding overtime as the packed Raider dome arched to watch the trajectory as the buzzer sounded. Game over, swish, 63-60. Ive never had a game end like that before, said a visibly emotional Orange Park High coach Derek Kurnitsky after tak ing nearly 20 minutes in the team room to console his shocked troops. We always ght our guts out on the court. It is what it is. I still think Raider basketball is in a good place. For Orange Park, a second district 4-6A title goes into the history books with a second early exit in the state playoffs, but Kurnitsky, though emotional in this outcome, was optimistic. The seniors here have left a mark, said Kurnitsky. Raider basketball is in good shape. It hurts more because I wont see these seniors in the locker here any more. Led by junior John Abates 21 points, the Raiders were unable to counter the 66 presence of Ribault center Julian Clark, who dominated the paint through the rst half as Ribault opened a 14-7 rst quarter By Randy Lefko Sports Editor ST. JOHNS Fleming Island Highs girls basketball team roared to a 20-12 rst quarter lead and looked to be thwarting the threat of Bartram Trails challenge in their region 1-8A seminal game on Thursday at Creekside High School, but turnovers and a cold shooting spree ended the Golden Ea gles season with the Bears winning 51-48. We beat ourselves against this team both times, said Fleming Island coach Joey Williams. We had nine turnovers last time and 20 tonight. Fleming Island ends their season at 24-6. The Golden Eagles played in the Fi nal Four last year. Bartram Trail, who de feated Fleming Island 50-47 in the district 4-8A championship game on February 10, advances to the region nal against Tal lahassee Lincoln (21-1), the district 2-8A champion over Tate High. So many turnovers tonight, said Flem ing Island High coach Joey Williams. This is the youngest team we played this sea son. Twenty turnovers is not going to win games like this. The two losses to them are the most frustrating for me as a coach. After the rst quarter scoring bonanza, Fleming Island cooled their jets to end the half behind 28-27 behind a halfcourt buzz er beater from guard Reedy Davenport. That one hurt, said Williams. The momentum was in their locker room when the half ended and I had to convince our girls that we could still win the game. Both teams volleyed about in the third period with defensive efforts from Aubrey Burke and Molly Ragle stiing the Bartram Trail attack. Fleming Island looked to be nding their groove with a set of steals to assists to layups with Hope Rozier and Tia Robin son answering as Fleming Island went up 31-30 near the two minute mark. Bartram Trail got a layup but, then, an other backbreaking three pointer; this time from freshman Dana Art as Fleming Island. From there, with the score at 35-31 for Bartram Trail, Ragle took the reigns and nailed a three pointer from the left side of the lane to keep the Golden Eagles within reach. A second Ragle bomb landed the score at 37-37 with 1:26 left in the third en route to a 39-39 score at the break. Rebounds and free throws became the scenario for Fleming Island with Robinson hitting one of two on one series and center Skylar Baltezegar also going one for two. We needed those extra free throws obviously as a game like this comes down to missed free throws, said Williams. We have to hit those. Ragle again pushed the pace for Wil liams with a strong defensive stand against Davenport swinging the momentum to Fleming Island who took a 43-39 lead off two free throws from Ragle. A bobbled ball by Burke led to a steal and breakaway for Bartram Trail guard Tia Singleton that seemed to ignite the crowd. Bartram Trail would tie the game at 43-43 off an offensive rebound that led to two free throws from Singleton with 4:41 to go. I have to do a better job as a coach to teach this kid of situation, a close game, said Williams. Mental toughness is a tough thing to coach. Again, both teams volleyed about ex changing baskets to create a 47-47 tie with 2:15 to go as Baltezegar, the hero of the Golden Eagles region quarternal win over First Coast, got two inside layups to keep the score close. Bears took the lead off a layup over Baltezegar by senior guard Grace Tybor that caused a time out from Williams to im plore his team to take shots at the basket. It seemed like no one wanted to take the tough shot, said Williams. We were passing way too much at that point as the clock was ticking down. A pass from Robinson to Ragle got smothered under the basket and created a jump ball whistle that gave the ball back to Bartram Trail who got a free throw off the exchange to go ahead 50-47 with less than a minute to go. Robinson again hit one of two free throws on the next Fleming Island offen sive set to score the game 50-48, but a missed three pointer from Ragle, that was in and out of the rim, almost won the game. Fleming Island had one more shot, with 10 seconds on the clock, with an inbound situation at the far end of the court, but Burke could not get a handle of the errant pass as the buzzer sounded. rr STAFF PHOTOS BY RANDY LEFKO Orange Park High guard John Abate gets close defense from Ribault High defender Capreece Wells in Raiders 63-60 loss in region 1-6A quarternal match at Orange Park High School. lead that grew to 24-17 at the half.

March 1, 2018 CLAY TODAY 19 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM OHS Rosano wins title By Randy Lefko Sports Editor OVIEDO Fleming Island Highs wrestling team did what they were supposed to do as far as winning a third region 1-3A title, ad vance a handful of wrestlers to the March 3-4 state meet and put their hat in for the chase of a Class 3A title to South Dade High School, the defending and 10 times Class 3A champion. We just didnt wrestle well, especial ly in that Blood Round where we lost matches we should have won, said Flem ing Island coach P.J. Cobbert, referring to Blood Round, the consolation seminals matches that create the nal two of four wrestlers to advance to the state champi onships. Theres three matches we lost by like one point. We have to wrestle to win those tough matches, regardless of the calls made which make it close. We wrestle our way and dominate, we should win. We did not dominate. Cobberts team, second in Class 3A last year to South Dade, not only won the re gion 1-3A team title with 219.5 points, far ahead of runnerup Hagerty Highs 156.5 and third place nishers Flagler Palm Coast at 135.5. Oakleaf nished 12th with 42.5 points based off a region title from se nior Ryan Rosano, his rst. The win was Cobberts third consecutive region title. Fleming Island will send just four wres tlers as region champions; Briar Jackson at 113, still unbeaten at 59-0 Paul De twiler at 170, Ryan Smenda at 220 and Jose Concepcion at 285 with ve more as top four nishers; Lou Gagliardo, fourth at 106; Albie Snedaker, second at 113; Jacob Sandoval, second at 126; Jaquan English, second at 132 and Tyler Williams, fourth at 138. Cobberts dismay at close losses includ ed a double overtime 5-4 seminal loss for Gagliardo to Hagertys Ryan Rowland, last years 106 runnerup; Williams 6-4 loss to Hagertys Ethan Woods in the 138 semi nal and Luke Chops 5-4 loss in the 152 seminal to Logan Perkins of Hagerty. For Oakleaf High School, senior Ryan Rosano defeated Fleming Islands Albie Snedaker 3-0 for the 120 title to advance. The Knights had six wrestlers advance from districts; freshman Addiert Escobar at 106; Ethan Gustillo at 138, who lost to region champion Michael Martins of Fla gler Palm Coast in his semnal; Trent Car roll at 145; Lavell Jones at 160 and Isaiah Graham at 170, who lost in the consolation seminal to Keyshon Talley of Apopka 7-2. 2017: Third at 152 By Randy Lefko Sports Editor FLEMING ISLAND In the annals of sports, going unbeaten and winning a championship in your event is mostly a matter of God-given talent, preparation and training and a little bit of luck. For Fleming Island High senior 170 pound wrestler Paul Detwiler, the key piece of that three-way puzzle is the preparation. I didnt really think about an unde feated season way back, said Detwiler. who nished third at 152 pounds last year with a 54-5 record. I think every thing kind of clicked after my Disney Duals week where I beat a lot of really good and ranked guys. I just dont want to lose. Detwiler, who had started this season with a string of rst period pins for wins, has recently had some close calls; includ ing a 4-2 win over Tallahassee Lincolns Justin Grant, a third placer in Class 2A last year, at the Osceola Knockout Christ mas Tournament that Detwiler won an individual title. Its all matchups and Ive wrestled a lot of good guys; a lot of defending state champions, said Detwiler. I really havent thought about a state title yet even though its just four days away. Throughout the season, Detwiler said his philosophy, as coach P.J. Cobbert often repeats, is to concentrate on the match in front of him at the time. I try to take one match at a time, said Detwiler. Detwilers speed and ferocity on the mat combined with his hidden grip strength and leverage has left many oppo nents gasping for air early in his matches and unable to cope with the pace. I always think that these guys are going to break at some point because of my pace, said Detwiler. If they are tough in the beginning, I know that I can just weather the storm, start working my moves and take over in the third period. Im in pretty good shape and really pa tient. Ive always been in good shape. Against Hagertys Justin Segarra in the region seminal, Segarra held a 2-1 lead after the rst period with Segarra grabbing a rst takedown in the match with a single leg takedown. Detwiler would pin Segarra in the second period. I was content ending that match (with Segarra) 2-1, said Detwiler. I knew if I went out and tried to hit a bad shot, he was very athletic and still red up and could have hit something. I can tell when a guy is about to fold. The difference from last year to the present, said Detwiler, is simply the cut ting weight aspect of wrestling. Ive always had good technique, but last year I was cutting weight everyday, said Detwiler, who struggled to make 106 as a freshman, tried to stay at 138 before settling for 152 last year. I wasnt lifting, focusing on technique and not being at full strength. This year, without that worry, I can say I havent missed any reps (in the weight room and on the running track). At the upcoming state meet, one wres tler that is on Detwilers radar is South Dades Mikaelle Fundora, whom Detwiler pinned twice earlier in the season. Fun dora, 58-2 (both Detwiler pins) nished fourth last year at 160. I wrestled him twice and pinned him twice early in the season, but I havent seen him since, said Detwiler. I think they did that for a reason by not letting me gure him out and him also surprising me this week. South Dade guys always get better as the season moves on.

Rodriguez, who heads to the Class 2A state meet March 2-3 in Kissimmee defeated Middleburgs Tazz Hampton for the region title as well as for the district 3-2A title a week ago. minutes on the eld for St. Johns, said St. Johns coach Mike Pickett, who now has seven consecutive Class 1A titles to add to his 10 overall titles since arriving at the St. Johns Country Day School campus 20 years ago. That second half was about as beautiful a second half of soccer as I could ever ask for. The ve seniors on this team went out showing off why they will be forc es at the next level in college. St. Johns nishes unbeaten at 26-0-0 with district and region titles and a long standing as the number one team in Amer ica while Miami Country School nishes at 19-4-2 including an overtime win over previously unbeaten Lakeland Christian in their state seminal a week earlier. St. Johns opened up against the muchbigger, much taller Miami team but wasted little time in getting the ball downeld and in front of the goal. With a long throw in from Payton Walton that found forward Alisa Detlefsen camped in front ot the goal, outside forward Kamy Loustau picked up the deected Detlefsen header and buried the ball into the net for the rst goal of the night with 36 minutes until halftime. We have scored more goals off our set pieces this year; corner kicks and free kicks, said Pickett. Against Miami, we scouted their taller defenders and saw that they were not very aggressive in the air. Alisa is not very tall, but the timing is the key. Just two minutes after the initial goal, Walton found Payton Crews in the goal box that nearly became the second goal of the night, but a twisting kick from Crews fell into the hands of goalie Soa Benenson. At 31 minutes, Detlefsen lofted a free kick from inside the 50 to a speeding Abbey Newton down the right side of the goal that got a kick just inches right of the goal post. As Miamis defenders in the middle, led by 6-footers Ava Hansen and and Isabella Allen, kept banging the Spartans offensive threats, Pickett was jotting notes in his playbook. We saw that they were going to be physical with whoever came up the mid dle, said Pickett. We put two of our bigger Soccer from page 17 players up front; Maddie Moody and Anna Carrico to battle back and hopefully wear them down. Carrico had two strong runs to the Mi ami baseline, but could not penetrate for a clean shot, but her second run resulted in another Detlefsen corner kick. Payton Crews got a second close-up shot on goal from the Detlefsen corner kick that saw her head the ball to the ground, spin and punch the ball into the net for a 2-0 lead at 23:44. From there to the half, both teams vol leyed around the mideld stripe with minor scoring threats. We hit them with our big players in that end of the rst half and we were going to go with speed in the second half, said Pickett. If that plan didnt work, we were going to need something else. It worked very nicely. Right from the start of the second, St. Johns swarmed the goal and sizzled the eld with play after play blowing past the Miami defense with Crews starting the barrage of shots on goal with just 57 sec onds off the clock as Crews blasted a shot left and over Benenson. At 36:55, it was Kamryn Towers taking a rebound off a shot from Newton off the goalie that landed right of the goal. Crews started the score with a lofting feed over the Miami defense to Newton on the left side of the goal. At 36:33, Newton and Kirsten Pavlisko sped over mideld in tan dem before Newton found Pavlisko among three Miami defenders. The FSU-bound Pavlisko zigged and zagged before planting the fth goal of the night as Miami had no answer to the St. Johns attack. Newton would score the nal goal at 24 minutes to go to get the St. Johns starters a rest break on the bench for most of the rest of the game. They had done their job and pretty much played their best set of soccer, said Pickett. Being able to put the younger girls on the state title eld is always a bo nus for the program. Thats part of what keeps us going strong each year. St. Johns had 18 shots on goal to Mi amis eight with St. Johns getting seven corner kicks to Miamis two. St. Johns goalie Maddie Wilkes had four saves for the night with three in the second half with Benenson elding nine shots on goal for Miami. Maddie stepped in as our goalie with little experience at the position, but she worked, studied the position and listened to every bit of coaching to become an out standing goalie for us, said Pickett. She has great positioning and vision. STAFF PHOTOS BY RANDY LEFKO St. Johns forward Alisa Detlefsen got a head on this throw-in that found the foot of teammate Kamy Loustau for the rst goal of the Spartans 6-0 win against Miami Country Day School. On defense for the St. Johns Country Day School soccer team, senior Kirsten Pavliskos speed afoot was too much for Miami. In the rst half, Spartan coach Mike Pickett employed the physical presence of senior Anna Carrico to counter Miamis front line size.

The two dugouts looked like a mismatched David vs. Goliath was about to begin. With Fleming Island rocking the Spar tans defense for ve runs in the fth, Lu cas and his Spartans orchestrated a come back of epic proportions led by two homers from freshman Tanner Zellem and a walkoff gamewinner from Cody Myers as St. Johns prevailed 6-5 in front of their home crowd plus a ton of Fleming Island followers. Thats what I was more proud about than anything. A lot of teams quit there, said Lucas of his teams moxie. You have to go with some young guys, an eighth grader comes out of the bullpen, my little leftie, and gets us the two outs we needed. Theyre not scared. They are going to go in there and give us everything they have. Thats what we love as coaches. I got nine or 10 guys Ill put against anybody. The Spartans drew rst blood with a Hunter Russel single RBI in the second in ning before Zellem blasted his rst homer; a two-run shot, to put St. Johns up 3-0. Fleming Island, behind a walk to Sam my Kondroik, got a two run homer from Aiden Mastantuno en route to a 3-2 score in the fth. Two eld errors on singles put the fourth and fth runs on the board for Fleming Island. I told them make them earn all nine outs (remaining in the game at that point) said Lucas. Put yourself in a situation where you have a chance to come back. In the sixth, Spartan catcher Tyler Kuramoto singled to set up a second dinger from Zellem that tied the game at 5-5. I turned and saw the coach give what I thought was a sign for a fast ball said Zel lem. I just saw it right out of his hand and it was right in the strike zone. In the eighth inning, with two baserun ners for St. Johns, Russell hit a pop y to ward third base where Mercer misread the ball to load the bases. After a rst pitch strike, a foul, and a swing for strike two, Myers connected on a blazing grounder to left eld. Fleming Island outelder Scott Kondroik couldnt make a play on the low shot which allowed Britts to seal the deal 6-5 and shut down opening night with a dramatic eight inning thriller that will be the talk of Spartan baseball for the rest of this season.

March 1, 2018 CLAY TODAY 27 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM allowed the game to continue. Its part of the playoffs. In the rst half, Orange Parks offen sive attack that featured slashing strikes toward the basket from outside the three point lines used to open up three point shots by Kadin Elmore or Abate, it was a series of passes from center Davontai Crutch to freshman forward Craddock that put in some tough layups. Elmore, who hit key three pointers against Westside in the district nal, hit his rst one in the third with a one-step fake before launching that seemed to fuel a Raider surge. With Craddock taking two layups against Matthews for success, Or ange Park slowly closed the scoring gap to 32-29 with four minutes left in the third and Raider Nation sensing another highpaced fourth quarter surge. I saw something in their eyes that said we were going to be alright, said Kur nitsky. These guys are ghters. Orange Park continued to press and Ribault seemed to be wilting by the pres sure as went baseline to baseline with a layup at the buzzer scoring the game at 45-37. In the fourth, Abate and McBride turned up the volume with relentless in side attacks in the paint causing either layups or free throws as Crutch and Abate chipped away at the Trojan lead. A nifty steal at halfcourt by Elmore that reached Abate and nally found Craddock for a jumper got the score to 47-43 with six minutes to go. Ribault stayed steady, but quickly forced fouls against the Raid ers to force free throws on their side as the score loomed at 54-51 with a minute left and both teams in a frenzy trying to or chestrated time outs and intentional fouls. At 57-51, with 52 seconds, McBride blasted through the lane but did not get a roll on a layup, but Elmore again respond ed with a huge three pointer in front of the Raider bench that put the score at 58-54 with 45 seconds left. A little Kharma left the Ribault basket with two missed free throws landing Abate on a twisting drive to the basket and Crutch nding Craddock for a layup put the score at 60-58 with 35 seconds to go with Ribault again missing one of two free throws in the raucous Rai derdome noise. McBride took the ensuing throw-in and went straight up the middle of the Ribault defense against two 6-4 buildings and wiggled in a twisting layup to tie the game at 60-60 with :09 on the clock. We did just about everything right, said Kurnitsky. We got the shot, set up for pressure inside halfcourt and made them throw a running in bounds pass. Unfor tunately, they got lucky on the throw. We didnt give him a clean look. Its what we sign up for, endings like this happen. Hoops from page 18 STAFF PHOTO BY RANDY LEFKO Orange Park center Davontai Crutch tries to slash inside against Ribault in Raiders 63-60 loss in the regin 1-6A quarternals on. By Ray DiMonda Correspondent ORANGE PARK The visiting Ridgeview Panthers came into the connes of Saint Johns Country Day School to face the feisty team that could; St. Johns Country Day School which had a come-from-be hind 6-5 win over Fleming Island already on their hit list. Watching their pre-game, they dont make mistakes said Ridgeview coach John Sgromolo. They dont have a bunch of huge guys but they do all the little things right. I told our guys all week it was going to be a battle and it was. The Spartans got out ahead with a second inning Hunter Russell RBI to bring Tanner Zellem home for the games rst score. Ridgeview batter Justin Farmer knocked out a third inning deep left eld home run to tie the game. In the end, the Spartans could do no better than get a few runners on and leave them abandoned as Ridgeview add ed three more to close the game out with a 4-1 road victory to end week one.
