Ozell McNabb Jr., 24, Taurean Andretti Johnson, 30, Jordan Tyler Coleman, 22, and Alexandra Grace Schrefer, 23, all of Green Cove Springs, face one count each of rst-degree or Kolton Shearer Ozell McNabb Jr. Taurean Johnson Jordon Coleman Alexandra Schreer SEE INDICT, 8 By Eric Cravey Managing Editor FLEMING ISLAND Teachers and staff members enrolled in the Clay County School District health insurance plan will be getting a boost from the district in their next eight paychecks. The school board voted 5-0 at its March 1 meeting to spend $305,000 to give each health insurance recipi ent $100 spread out over employees next eight pay periods. The move comes as the district braces for a 29 percent hike in health insurance premiums, a year after receiving a 10 percent hike. Teachers equate the price increase to a money grab as the premium hike will basi cally wipe out a recent pay raise approved by the board. I do appreciate the raise, but I dont want it to counteract the fact that the in surance is increasing and I have no other options but to use it [health insurance], said Jenifer Burghart, a teacher at Orange Park High School. In January, the Clay County Education Association ratied a two-year deal that gives $1,000 each year to Highly-Effective A gesture School board approves insurance boost Jenifer Burghart SEE GESTURE, 2 Stumping for school safety ORANGE PARK Gov. Rick Scott was in town Tuesday to meet with local police chiefs where he discussed his plan to improve Florida school safety, which includes $500 million, part of which would go toward mental health. The Governors proposal followed the emergency meet ings Governor Scott organized with law enforcement, school administrators, teachers, mental health experts and state agency leadership, as well as meetings with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 people were killed on Feb. 14. Florida schools currently receive $64 million in Safe Schools funding, which is more than $10 million less than the 2002-2003 scal year yet there are 303,497 more students enrolled in Florida schools.

Burghart asked the board to consider some type of health insurance assistance in support of the pending measure, which was placed on the school board agenda by Janice Kerekes. Burghart she even looked at pricing for health insurance plans outside of the district and said they were comparable in price, but still characterized that pricing as astronomical. I love my job. I love what I do, but I have to be able to support my family in the process, said Burghart, whose husband also teaches in the school district. Before the vote, board members took about 45 minutes to weigh in on the pros and cons of spending the $305,000. It be came apparent that some board members are still haunted by previous years actions of dipping into the districts fund balance from 2013-2016 to balance the budget. However, the district is on track this scal year to life the fund balance to 4 percent, a point it has not seen since approximately 2011. Im sitting here feeling like, I want to say absolutely, yes, we want to do ev erything we can for the teachers, and on the other hand, Im sitting here saying, we need to be scally responsible as a school board member, said board member Mary Bolla. School board member Ashley Gilhou sen was the next to weigh in and said she echoed Bollas thoughts. She appeared to say school security was her top of mind issue as she said, Ive been getting ham mered with phone calls, emails, conversa tions everybodys concerned about school security. Gilhousen said she questioned the re al-life impact of the $100 per employee. While she asked for more time to further discuss insurance, she would go on to vote for the measure. Gilhousen also said the $305,000 was a large portion of our fund balance. However, Susan Legutko, assistant su perintendent for business affairs, said the move would only take the fund balance down to 3.5 percent, which is still above the state-recommended level of 3 percent. Meanwhile, Kerekes red back by say ing the board has talked about health in surance all year and that now is the time to take some type of action. Youre right. Its a couple gallons of gas. Weve had people come before us and say how they cant afford to buy gas to get to work meaning they are struggling. Not everybodys making $114,000 a year, Ker ekes said. Chairman Carol Studdard said she was torn on this and asked whether the district would be better off to take the $305,000 and use it as seed money to launch a self-insured plan for the district. We are committed to do something about this insurance, Studdard said. Our insurance rates are ridiculous. When I rst got on this board, there was no [insurance] cost to the employee. Look over the past years what has happened it is out of con trol. Vice Chairman Betsy Condon said she was concerned that, if the measure passed, the teachers union could come back to the board and le an unfair labor practice saying the board did not conduct recent contract negotiations in good faith. I also feel like its a gesture and Ill be honest with yall, we need to get to the minimum of what the rest of the states do ing and it was our fault ours collectively, Clay County School District Condon said. It was our fault we got into the place we did with the fund balance and were all having to live with that. Before taking a vote, Studdard asked Renna Lee Paiva, CCEA president, if teach ers have spoken to her about the proposed expenditure. I think its very important to them, Paiva said. I think youre right, that its a gesturethese people are frustrated. The employees are frustrated, but that $10[per check after taxes] is meaningful to us. The next monthly school board meeting is April 5 at 6 p.m. at the Teacher Train ing Center on the campus of Fleming Island High. STAFF PHOTO BY KILE BREWER Former Green Cove Springs Mayor Bob Page lead his table in discussion Saturday at city hall during a visioning session held for the public to present the City Council with some guidelines for where they want to see their city headed by 2025. By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Residents re cently got a chance to look into the future and ponder what kind of city they want to live in in the years ahead. City Council held a Community Vision ing Workshop March 3 the rst ofcial event of its type since 2012 to allow resi dents to share their vision for the city of Green Cove Springs and where they see it going by the year 2025. The council brought in government ex pert Marilyn Crotty from the University of Central Florida to lead the discussions, something Crotty does across the state as the director of UCFs Florida Institute of Government. Crotty explained to the group about 80 people split into a handful of tables that the discussion would con sist of two main parts. First, participants would come up with what they consider to be the citys current treasures and val ues, the things they like about Green Cove, and things that they want to see staying the same. The next step is where citizens began looking to the future of the city and presented ideas for things that they would like to see added to, or changed within, their city. Not all cities let citizens participate in these things, Crotty said. Today is all about you, its your chance to share your ideas, thoughts and feelings about this community. Members of the city council were present at the meeting, and available for background information and other minor things, but they were not allowed to par ticipate in the discussions or offer their personal thoughts and opinions. They were only present to observe and receive the input of their community. They will even tually receive a report back with a sum mary of all the ideas presented during the visioning session and use that report dur ing their upcoming budget meetings later in the year to decide where residents want their money spent. During the rst part of the discussion, there was signicant overlap between tables. Residents of Green Cove, ranging from those who have lived in the city for 25 or more years down to those who had been there about a month, were all drawn to move to or stay in Green Cove Springs for the same basic reasons. Things the crowd valued about their community included: river access, brick streets, the small town feel, city-spon sored events, their position as county seat, their status as a Tree City USA, the His torical Triangle, Spring Park, an accessible government and police department, and small businesses like Spring Park Coffee. When you live in a city that has all these assets, its something we take for granted, Crotty said after hearing the community speak fondly about their home city. The discussion moved to the recent growth, and expected growth as the First Coast Expressway moves toward the city. SEE FUTURE, 7

After City Manager Danielle Judd for mally announced that she would be end ing her time as city manager after see ing the city through this years budget meetings, the coun cil advised staff to begin the process of nding a replace ment. Tuesday evening, Human Resources Director Mary Jane Lundy presented in formation to the council that asked for action on whether or not to hire an out side agency to start searching for Judds replacement. It is staffs recommendation that the city council elects to begin the recruitment and that we would use an executive search party for the search, Lundy said. Before the 5-0 vote to engage a rm to search for candidates, Mayor Mitch Tim berlake reminded the council, staff and the public that they are looking to have some one in place sooner rather than later, with the goal being that they would have their new city manager working alongside Judd through this years budgeting process to get a feel for how the city does things. My interest is that we move forward as quickly as possible, Timberlake said. Also receiving a 5-0 vote was a reso lution that would establish Rules of Pro cedure for the City Council, a sort of guidebook for the way council meetings are supposed to function, including things like establishing Roberts Rules of Order as their framework, promoting the idea of civility among members of the council and limiting public comments to three minutes. City Clerk Julie Clevinger discovered that the rules were rst brought up in 2012 by her predecessor, but were never formally voted on or considered by the council. Clevinger updated the document and reviewed it with Judd and City Attor ney Jim Arnold before bringing it to the council. This is not us telling you what to do by any stretch of the imagination, Arnold said. This is asking you what you would like to do, how you would like to go Green Cove Springs city manager search gets underway STAFF PHOTO BY KILE BREWER Muralist Anthony Rooney installed the third phase of a mural project at the Green Cove Springs Librarys childrens section March 3.

By Blake Dowling FloridaPolitics.com F acebook has been a modern Ameri can success story that continues to break boundaries and reinvent itself. It has also been in the news a lot lately, not for innovation, but what some people are calling, pay-to-play, exclusion, the Facebook Apocalypse and more. Some pub lishers and ad vertisers are not happy, as the platform jacks up rates and pulls the plug on what people see organically. Users are also not happy as they see too many ads. Facebook had 2 million advertisers in 2016 with over 5 million now. Good prob lem to have, but how they are handling it is, for us, a wait-and-see moment. Go back a few years in the Facebook world; pay-and-advertise was rarely mentioned. Back then, there were lots of other talks: organic, connect, share yadda yadda yadda. See this quote below, taken from a 2009 Wired article: Wired.com: So give me an example. A year or two from now, what might you be able to do on Facebook that would be an example of what youre talking about if youre a small business. Or a large business, for that matter? Mark Zuckerberg: You should be able to connect to a business in the same way that you connect to a friend, or a person on the site, and then that business should be able to publish things in the same way that that hap pens for people you care about. Anyway, Facebooks success is cool and inspiring. However, we all need to be pre pared for changes. I have been part of several conver sations in the Chamber, charity, politi cal, publishing and business sectors, all of which basically say, in their opin ion, it is all shifting. So, lets play a hypothetical game. If the Florida Politics Facebook page posts my column under the new system, not all the page followers would automatically see my column. But isnt that the whole point of sharing things on the page? However, if you pay, you can then open the gates a little further. Lets not forget; Facebook has some issues to tighten up. The New York Times weighed in again on the story of the Russian ad buys to stir discord in the process. Speaking of which, its going to be more relentless the next time; so, study up on their tactics. By Dean Wilson FloridaPolitics.com A fter going back and forth with similar bills, the Legislature cleared a pro posal Monday that would require nursing homes to have backup generators on site to keep the air conditioning running during power outages. The bill, House Bill 7099, is a pri ority of Gov. Rick Scott, who issued a similar require ment via an emer gency rule following a dozen heat-related deaths at The Re habilitation Center at Hollywood Hills following Hurricane Irma. Upon the bills passage, Florida Health Care Association Executive Director Em mett Reed issued a statement: FHCA applauds Florida lawmakers for passing legislation that prioritizes the care and comfort of the residents in our states nursing homes. The Legislatures ratica tion of the nursing home generator rule is another important step to ensuring Florida remains a leader when it comes to tak ing care of our seniors, especially during disasters. We appreciate the Legislature, Governor Scott and the Agency for Health Care Administration for allowing us to be part of the discussion and considering our recommendations as this rule was de veloped. Our priority has always been to strengthen emergency procedures so the focus remains on the well-being of resi dents and the emergency planning that en sures their safety. We look forward to the Governor signing this legislation into law. Also on Monday, lawmakers sent a bill that would expand workers compensation benets to rst responders who suffer jobrelated post-traumatic stress disorder to Scotts desk. A spokesman said the governor will review the legislation when received, but would not commit to Scotts approval. If Chief Financial Ofcer Jimmy Patronis has any sway, however, Senate Bill 376 will get Scotts signature.

I was angered and disappointed at Sat urday nights Senate vote in favor of Sen ate Bill 7026. Among the many ridiculous items included in this bill, the Senate voted against banning the sale of military-grade weapons while voting in favor of the socalled School Marshal program. The School Marshal program is of immense concern to most public school teachers. This program would allow teach ers to undergo weapons training and be armed with a handgun while on school property. Allegedly, this program would allow schools to better protect students in case of an attack by an intruder.

suicide at a rate ve times higher than the general population, and they are thinking about suicide at a rate nine times higher than the general population. Weve heard horric stories about loss of life, and the impact tragedy has on our rst responders and their families. First responders show up for us ev ery day, without hesitation or questioning our politics, and today Florida showed up for them. Last year, four states, including Texas, increased mental health benets for rst responders. Im proud we can now add Florida to that list. To those who refused to support this measure from the beginning: we got it done without you.Thank you to Senate Presi dent Joe Negron, Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran, Sen. Lauren Book, Rep. Matt Willhite, and all of the co-sponsors in both chambers. By early evening, the nal vote hadnt come down for the school safety package pieced together in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, but the Florida Coalition to Pre vent Gun Violence put out a nal statement against certain provisions in the bill. One such measure the arming of teachers was watered down in the Sen ate bill Monday afternoon. Coalition co-chairs Patricia Brigham and Andy Pelosi, as well as League of Women Voters of Florida President Pamela Goodman, put out the following statement ahead the vote Monday evening: As the Senate is poised to vote on SB 7026 (School Safety Bill), we remain op posed to any policy that will arm admin istrators, teachers, or staff as a way to defend against a mass shooting. While SB 7026 does contain certain important pro visions, arming people in our schools that are not School Resource Ofcers, whose only job is to protect the school, will not properly protect our schools and will ul timately cost more money in the long run. We call on the Senate to strip any plan that will arm administrators, teachers, or staff before sending a bill to the House. If the Senate fails to act as we have outlined, we call on the House to fully debate SB 7026 and fully remove provisions arming teachers, administrators, or staff. The issues are too grave and the stakes too high not to fully debate all is sues related to school safety in Florida. The other K-12 package moving through the Legislature Monday was House Speak er Richard Corcorans favored bill, HB 7055. It got approval from the Senate with a 20-17 vote, and the House sent it to the Governors desk with a 74-39 vote. While many teachers have negative things to say about the union-busting provisions in the bill, its passage earned praise from Americans for ProsperityFlorida. AFP-FL Director Chris Hudson put out the following statement Monday: This bill is a win-win. It stands up for the rights of teachers who dont want their money going to a union they dont support and provides Floridas kids with better ed ucation options. We commend the Senate for passing this bill, and hope the House sends it to the Governor for his signature as soon as possible. Our activists have worked tirelessly to engage with citizens and lawmakers about the importance of passing these measures into law. Their hard work every session continues to inspire positive outcomes throughout our legislative process. n Drew Wilson covers legislative cam paigns and fundraising for SaintPetersBlog and FloridaPolitics.com.

Although none of us would hesitate to bodily shield our students from harm, that is not why we became teachers. Our pri mary focus is to provide our students with a good education and nurture their growth as citizens and human beings. What does the public think would hap pen if, God forbid, we are placed in a situ ation similar to the incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School? Let one bullet red by a teacher go astray, and we would be held responsible and have no le gal protection from our school board. Let one teacher miss while ring at the perpe trator and hit a student. Both the teacher and the students family would live the rest of their lives in unimaginable mental pain. The teacher would land in jail and be sued for trying to protect the student. I nd it quite ironic that we are regu lated by state and federal lawmakers in ev erything we do. We are not trusted to teach effectively, and have had most of the blame for societys ills placed in our laps. Now our legislators want to arm us and hope for the best? (Oh, and for undergoing the training, we would earn a huge $500 bonus.) This is the most ludicrous legislation to ever be considered by our representatives. I urge all public school teachers and par ents to express their outrage over this bill. Teachers are currently leaving the eld en mass over our poor treatment and unreal istic expectations from legislators on the local, state and federal levels. If this bill becomes law, our students will, through no fault of their own, continue to see their teachers walk away from this profession. Sincerely, Pamela Jordan Fleming Island Letter from page 4 Also new in the social media political front, advertisers will now have to say who paid for them. That sounds familiar. Great idea. This blog pokes fun at that. So, Facebook is part of the world: poli tics, business, pictures of your neighbors cat named Frito, blogs about Knight Rid er, rants on everything (maybe FB should make political ranters pay-to-play; theres an idea for you, Zuck). Before our eyes, the Facebook story unfolds. And just like everyone else, they will stumble thats OK by me. You certainly cannot make everyone happy; hopefully, Facebook will nd a way to continue its great American suc cess story. I will be rooting for them all the way.

Those present were not necessarily against seeing their city grow, but they want to see sensible growth where development doesnt take over the down town area or the parts of the city that make it feel like a small town. As the discussion moved on, the groups began deciding what they want to see in their citys future. While the rst part saw many of the same answers from table to table, the visioning portion of the discus sion resulted in many unique ideas that, when assembled into a list, painted a clear picture for the council on what residents see as Green Cove Springs 2025. Some of the more common ideas includ ed: becoming a legal golf cart community to cut down on vehicle trafc, maintaining the small town feel but enhancing it with mod ern amenities as the population increases, developing the new part of the city with chain stores near the port and maintaining the old city as it currently stands, canoe and kayak launches in Spring Park, im proving the citys online presence and of fering citywide wireless internet through their utility service, restaurants that stay open for dinner, moving power lines under ground, and building a riverfront board walk. Some groups came up with ideas that were even more big picture, like the group led by Assistant City Manager Mike Null. Nulls group suggested closing Walnut Street to vehicular trafc and maintaining the brick street as a boardwalk through downtown shops and restaurants. As part of this walkable downtown district, Nulls group called for a denition of what the city wants to be known as their historic downtown, and preserving that area once it is dened. The group also suggested adding more parking as the city grows through the de velopment of vertical garages. Another group led by former Green Cove Springs mayor Bob Page proposed that the county should consider creating a Green Cove Springs Master Plan like those seen for the Oakleaf area and Lake Asbury, other city centers the Beltway will pass through. With County Commissioner Mike Cella and County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos among the participants, the idea should make its way back to the Board of County Commissioners. I was struck by the involvement, you were not only talking but also listening to each other, Crotty said while closing out the meeting. Though she had never been to Green Cove Springs before, Crotty said she was already considering moving there. Once the city has received the report from the session, they will present the ndings to the public at a city council meeting before moving forward with any of the proposed projects. Ideas favored by the council could be placed in the citys list of planned capital projects and considered during this years budgeting session. STAFF PHOTO BY KILE BREWER Green Cove Springs residents gathered March 3 to join in group discussions on the direction citizens want their city headed in the next ve-to-10 years.

McNabb and Johnson both face one count each of pos session of a weapon or ammo by a con victed felon. The grand jury handed down the indict ments on March 1. Shearer was fatally shot in the abdo men while inside a home at 1956 County Road 16A during a reported robbery about 2 a.m. Police said another man, David Cody Levo, was shot in the thigh and recov ered after surgery at Orange Park Medical Center. Schrefer and Coleman lived at the res idence, according to arrest reports. While investigating the case, detec tives said McNabb, Coleman, Johnson and Schrefer, were with Shearer and two other people at the home on County Road 16A near Idlewild Avenue around 2 a.m. The reason for the meeting was not known, but investigators said they believe robbery was the motive for the incident. They said someone in the group of four started shoot ing, killed Shearer and struck Levo in the leg. Police said after the shooting, an undis closed person drove Shearer about a mile to a Kangaroo gas station for help. The driver was not injured and tried to save Shearer by giving him CPR in the station parking lot. After the shooting, McNabb ed to the Orangedale area of St. Johns County where he hid from authorities. The CCSO then called on the U.S. Marshals Service to aid in the search for McNabb who later called the St. Johns County Sheriffs Ofce and told them he was tired of running. He was later transferred to Green Cove Springs for his rst court appearance. According to records with the Clay County Clerk of Court, McNabb is a con victed felon having been given probation for conspiracy to commit armed robbery in June 2015. Shearer, a Middleburg High graduate, was on summer break from South Georgia State College where he was attending on a baseball scholarship. Kolton was an all-American boy who loved the outdoors, shing, the beach and his family, stated his mother Angie Shear er through the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce victims advocate around the time of his death. He had a passion for baseball and excelled academically. He was looking for ward to becoming an engineer as that was his life-long dream. The indictments now pave the way for the Fourth Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Ofce to move on and prepare for the trial phase in the case. Indict from page 1 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer ORANGE PARK Orange Park Town Council made amendments to its current scal year budget for the rst time during a council meeting on March 6. Amendments include small increases to the police depart ment fund and re department funds, a decrease from 2 percent to 1 per cent in the towns contingency policy and a change in the Orange Park Athletic Associations lease which results in the town paying OPAAs water bill. The bud get was also amended to accommodate an anonymous $500 donation that will be split equally between the towns police and re departments. The most signicant amend ment, however, was a mid-year adjust ment to the Capital Improvement Plan that will result in more funding for stormwater maintenance. Basically, its roughly $580,000 that will go towards stormwater projects, Town Manager Sarah Campbell said. The Pub lic Works Director and I are already iden tifying where and how that money will be used. She said $79,500 of that amount will go towards the purchase of a 2008 Menzi Muck A91 machine and accompanying equipment that the council approved to purchase during the same council meet ing. This machines purpose, according to Campbell, is to help maintain the towns stormwater by removing dirt, debris and silt from the towns ditches. The $580,000 that Campbell mentioned is the result of the Feb. 6 council meet ing where the council voted 5-0 to move $500,000 from the towns fund balance, or Council modies budget mid-year Sarah Campbell I see it as two-fold. A person needs to come in and ask us what questions we want to ask the community and then I think its really important to bring the community in and ask the right questions. Connie Thomas reserve fund, to the general fund budget. At the time, council member Gary Meeks cited that the purpose of the reserve was for times like these, referring to the towns need for money to continue Hurricane Irma cleanup and stormwater maintenance. If we are going to do this, $81,000, I just dont think thats going to touch it, Meeks said, referencing the $81,000 freed up for Irma cleanup from the CIP. This is what the $5 million is for its for a rainy day and the rainy day is here. Council voted 5-0 to approve the ordi nance to amend the budget. After discussing budget amendments, the council went over the 2018-19 scal year council strategic goals. Campbell laid out multiple aspects the council hopes to give priority in the next year. Campbell said waterway and stormwater maintenance, street improvements and resurfacing, town vision and revenue, sanitation services, parks, trees, agency relations and eco nomic development are areas on which to focus. However, one of the biggest priori ties will continue to the equitable sharing of resources and revenue with Clay County and continued negotiations regarding the county sharing revenues from re and am bulance services now provided by Orange Park. These goals were approved but not be fore two amendments to were made. The rst amendment saw the council declin ing to develop a Request for Proposal for strategic visioning services. The second amendment saw the council strike down the idea of hiring an outside professional rm to oversee the towns visioning pro cess and lead community engagement ef forts. The council voted to approve these goals 3-2, with council member Connie Thomas and Mayor Scott Land voting no as they did not agree with the second amend ment. Thomas sees the debate in hiring out side help as a good thing. I see it as two-fold, Thomas said. A person needs to come in and ask us what questions we want to ask the community and then I think its really important to bring the community in and ask the right questions. In other business, the council voted to hold a workshop to analyze the 84-page Evaluation and Appraisal Report. This workshop will be held at a later undeter mined date.

12 CLAY TODAY March 8, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Kile Brewer Staff Writer MIDDLEBURG It was late in the day. William Byrns sat in an old bomb crater, covered in leaves and mud from the sur rounding Vietnam ese jungle. Byrns clutched his radio tightly, waiting for a response. When the response nally came, it was not what he wanted to hear, We cant get you til tomorrow morning, Byrns remembers hear ing from the voice on the other side of his walkie, I wont be here, he responded, just 10 days to go on his second tour of duty. I could hear them going around in the bushes, shooting, trying to scare me, he said, And it was working great. It was at this point that Byrns turned to prayer for the comfort he needed. I said, God, I havent been trusting you, Ive been trusting the United States government, but its up to you. Im willing to do anything to get out of this situation, but Ill accept your will, whatever it is, Byrns said. Then a calmness and a peace came over me after that and really never left me after that. Around midnight, Byrns woke up with the boot of a North Vietnamese soldier pressing his head into the muck he had been captured. Former POW honored for Vietnam War service SUBMITTED PHOTO William Byrns is greeted by his son Scott in 1973 upon Byrns return stateside after being held prisoner for about a year by the North Vietnamese Army. William Byrns Today, Byrns lives a comfortable life in his Fleming Island home, enjoying vis its from grandchildren and seeing his own children enjoy their successes. He was honored recently by the Clay County Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America No. 1059 who have renamed their organization in Byrns honor. The chapter is now the Col. William G. Byrns Chapter 1059. By naming the chapter, I feel that there are not enough American heroes in the lives of our youth. By us displaying our banner with his name on it, hopefully people will ask who was that man and then well be able to tell his story, the chap ters president Gary Newman said. Thats where our interest is, to have somebody that our youth can look up to and respect and hopefully be a role model. Byrns began his military career in the late 1960s, a time in American history when he didnt really have a choice. In those days you either had to join or you were gonna get drafted, Byrns said. So, instead of being drafted into the Army, he signed up for the Air Force. Af ter completing the exam required for en listment, he was given a spot in ofcers training and after that, pilot school. The Air Force wanted him to y ghter jets. Byrns, about 23 at the time, had just graduated from William Jewell College in Missouri. Soon after graduation, he got married, and six days after his wedding, he signed himself into the Air Force on August 18, 1967. Byrns father had been a pilot dur ing World War II, and Byrns had been on planes, but never own them. After almost two years of ofcer training and ight school, Byrns had mastered the F-4 air craft used by combat pilots during the SEE POW, 13

William G. Byrns Chapter 1059. POW from page 12 Vietnam era and was ready for his rst tour. In those days, the training was just getting you ready to go, Byrns said. I re ally enjoyed it and I couldnt believe I was getting paid to do it, until I got shot at. That kind of ying, its kinda fun but its kinda scary. In November 1969 Byrns was sent to Southeast Asia for the rst time, return ing a year later after numerous successful ying missions. He returned to his family, and then reported back to the Air Force for additional training on an updated version of the F-4. Byrns said that typically they would send the new pilots to Vietnam, but in the early 1970s the U.S. had started to pull troops from the southern part of the country and the northern soldiers were taking advantage of the dwindling U.S. presence. They were going to go back to North missions and bring people home so they wanted to send guys who had been there before, and they sent the new guys to Eu rope, Byrns said. So, I had to go back, and my wife was really not happy about that but were Christians so she said, If thats what God wants you to do then go. He deployed in June 1971, set to re turn, again, one year later in June. On May 23, 1972, Byrns took off from base on a routine bombing run. He took the lead. His job was to nd enemy vehicles moving south, mark the position for the rest of the squadron, and begin the attack. Byrns found some trucks on a remote road, marked them and started dropping bombs. Some pilots earlier had told Byrns group that there were no active surface-to-air missiles in the area and that they wouldnt have to worry about anti-aircraft re, how ever, when Byrns saw the rst missiles, he realized they were wrong. They look like telephone poles, and theyll blow your airplane out of the sky, Byrns said. You gotta dodge [the missiles] by going down and getting airspeed, getting them to come down with you, and then pull away and they cant make that turn. After dodging missiles for a while, By rns ghter jet began to lose airspeed, and about that time he lost control of the air craft he had been hit. I didnt see it, it wasnt locked onto me with radar, but somebody saw it and told me later, after I got released, they saw it hit the belly of my airplane and the thing pitched up, caught on re, and it was spin ning, Byrns said. I could see the Navy out off the coast and thats where I wanted to go, but the airplane wouldnt y, the stick was like a noodle. So I said, Were get ting out, and I punched us out. I pull the handle, my backseater goes rst, and then I go. After ejecting from the burning air plane, Byrns and his backseater parachut ed into two different locations, and revert ed back to the survival training they had received while training for combat ying. Byrns stashed his parachute and began walking, 20 minutes in one direction, like he had been trained, to lose any enemy soldiers who had pinpointed his location while watching his descent. At the end of his walk he reached an old bomb cra ter and climbed inside, with a .38 caliber pistol on his belt, sure that he would be evacuated before nightfall. Following his capture, Byrns was stripped to his underwear, hogtied and blindfolded. His captors beat him with a wooden club and shattered his arms and shoulders as he tried to protect his head. Then, a soldier pulled Byrns .38 from his belt. Byrns felt the gun barrel as the man pointed it at his head and pulled the trig ger. The gun didnt re, and another sol dier took it from the mans hand, shouting something about how American soldiers are worth more alive than dead. Byrns be gan a nearly three-week trek through the jungle, blindfolded, in socks, over rough terrain. A day after he was captured, his back seater was found nearby and brought along for the journey. Other American prisoners of war were added during the trip to Hanoi. Once there, Byrns was placed in solitary connement for a while before beginning a stint in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, a repur posed French political prison that Byrns described as being very primitive. I slept on concrete, and the rats were bigger than dogs, Byrns said. The roaches were bigger than the rats, I thought. All the crud and corruption they can eat, I guess. The days began to add up, and the thought of his familys safety never left By rns head. He hadnt heard anything from anyone since his capture, but that changed around Christmas time. Some members of his squadron had been shot down and captured, eventually they found Byrns and were able to tell him that his family knew he was alive. We knew how to survive, we were trained for it, the families are the ones who had a hard time, Byrns said. They didnt know what was going on, I think it was harder on the families [back home]. Following the Paris Peace Accords, pushed by Henry Kissinger in early 1973, POWs started to be released. Those with serious injuries were taken rst, and By rns left in the second to last group from the prison where he had been kept. From his time of capture until the day he was rescued, Byrns counted 10 months, 5 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes, a statistic he re cites without pause. He returned to the U.S. in March 1973. Now a decorated soldier, Byrns would not shy away from the military. By September that year, he was back in an F-4, and be gan a series of stations at bases across the country and in Europe where he taught young pilots to y. When the United States got involved in Operation Desert Storm in the 1990s, By rns was sent to Iraq. Now qualied on the F-16 ghter jet, he ew a handful of mis sions before the short-lived military opera tion was halted. I ew F-16 missions with guys on my wing my sons age, Byrns said. It was a lot different war then. After this nal deployment, Byrns would return to teaching and eventually land a job at Kansas State University head ing up the schools ROTC program. He re tired as a Colonel on October 1, 1991 af ter just over 30 years of military service. During those three decades, Byrns earned two Purple Hearts, the Legion of Merit, six Distinguished Flying Crosses, 36 Air Med als and others. Byrns now travels to schools, where he gives an annual four-class lecture at St. Johns River State College talking about the United States Constitution, something he wishes he had read and understood at a younger age. In civics class I didnt pay attention, but when you almost die defending it you pay attention, Byrns said.

Considered the greatest non-combat military disaster in U.S. military history, the story involves 23 pilots two of whom were Orange Park residents later in their lives ew directly into a Pacic Ocean typhoon. Their tale ended with 22 planes at the bottom of the ocean, six pilots dead and 16 pilots stranded in the Pacic. This sto ry, largely unheard of, is the story of Ma rine Fighting Squadron 422, or VMF-422. At the time, there were articles but nothing major, Carlson said. It was an unknown story. Carlson learned of a documentary titled The Flintlock Disaster from the man that rf Retired U.S. Navy Lt. George Davidson, shown here in a 2013 Clay Today le photo, attempted to save pilots stranded in the Pacic Ocean in 1944. rst informed him of this story. Immedi ately fascinated with the disaster, Carlson started asking questions and putting things together. When he had a story pulled to gether, he pitched it to his editor at Avia tion Magazine who, according to Carlson, really liked it. Carlsons rst article was published in January 2015. Having seen this story published, Carl son still desired to do more. There was more to this story, Carlson said. So, I began writing a book. The Marines Lost Squadron: The Od yssey of VMF-422 would be published more than two years later, in November 2017, after ve years of research and writ ing.

The tragic event is now chronicled in a new book. about the subject than any other person alive, Carlson said, reminiscing about Col. Robert Leonards who went through this disaster rst read and how much he learned from the book. It was the most in tense, detailed and hardest work Ive ever done but I was determined to do it right, make it as comprehensive and as accurate as possible, and I wanted it to be readable by the average person. The odyssey of VMF-422 begins in Tarawa, an atoll a ring-shaped coral reef usually encircling a lagoon of sorts in the Pacic Ocean. At 9:50 a.m. on Jan. 25, 1944, the 23 pilots were briefed on their mission. Standard during this time of war, the pilots were set to complete a milk run mission with the goal of relocating ghter planes out of harms way. Little did they know, they would soon be heading straight into harms way themselves. At 10 a.m. on Jan. 25, 1944, the pi lots took off in their state-of-the-art F4U Corsairs brand new ghter planes at the time headed towards Funafuti, roughly 800 miles away, on a weather report that was 26 hours old with no escort. Often, single-engine planes were accompanied by an escort, or a twin-engine aircraft, whose job was to ensure a ight went safely. De spite multiple requests for one, Gen. Lewie Merritt denied the pilots an escort. Around noon, the pilots saw a typhoon, Book from page 18 spanning across the horizon, and too late to divert course, ew directly into it. Fifteen minutes later, they would break out under the typhoon, scattered apart, without any navigational beacon and far off course. Only one pilot would make it through this storm and to the destination of Funafuti pilot John Hansen, who would later call Orange Park home. Hansens daughter, Heidi Hansen, didnt learn of this story until the 1990s. I didnt know about this disaster for many decades of my life, Hansen said. My dad didnt talk about the military so until I, myself, read the articles, I didnt know much about this at all. When Hansen nally learned of this ter rible event and how her father was one of the 23 that survived, she, like most would, asked how he felt about it. He felt the way everybody felt. It didnt have to happen, Hansen said. It should not have happened. They were unpre pared, ying over 800 miles of open ocean, with only the beginnings of radar. They didnt even have lunches packed. When Hansen learned that Carlson was writing a book about the event, she helped SEE BOOK, 20

Register First Assembly Fleming Island Faith Walk E verywhere you look in the world to day, there is chaos. Almost no part of our world has been spared. Some places are in major turmoil. Throughout the United States, cities have erupted with violence. Even as I write this message, the news is lled with stories of the violence in many places in our country. Christians are persecuted and killed in many places in the world just because they are Christians. The horror stories are reported in the news almost every day. The days of the martyrs have not ended. While the horrendous reports are giv en in the news, the deep dread, and even fear, disturbs the composure of those who have intense feelings about the suffering of others. But there is safety and security in the Lord for those who trust Him. Paul the Apostle wrote that the peace of God, which transcends all understand ing, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:7) Whatever the turmoil that may sur round us in a world of chaos, God will surround us with a spirit of peace and assurance if we trust Him. Isaiah says it so eloquently: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. (Isaiah 26:3 KJV) It does not come through our own understanding. Who can comprehend the vicious horrors perpetrated today? It does not come through any means other than placing our trust in Him and keeping our minds steadfastly attached to Him. It may not always result in physical safety. Many have suffered physically. The peace that God promises to those who trust Him is a peace in our spirit. The safety He promises is the guarantee of safety in eternity with Him. Trust Him today for your eternal as surance. Peace, peace, wonderful peace, Coming down from the Father above! Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray In fathomless billows of love! Peace in turmoil Book from page 19 out in any way she could, sharing details, photos, thoughts and more. When the book nally released, Hansen was left paralyzed by how real the book made this event feel. It was and is very hard for me to read this book because all of a sudden, its a live event, youre right there with them and it is so scary, Hansen said. Carl son is quite an author and we are really blessed he wrote this book. When pilot Hansen made it to Funa futi, he explained what had happened, al though the staff of that military base were well aware that something was off. In our eyes, yeah, he is one of the saviors, Hansen said of her father. So many people were involved in the even tual rescue but my dad certainly did his part. By 3:30 p.m., the pilots still ying had to ditch their planes for rafts that would keep them aoat in the middle of the Pa cic Ocean. Experienced in basic survival training, the stranded men endured the salty wind battering their eyes and skin. Sharks encircled their raft waiting for an easy meal as the men grew tired from the lack of nutrition that made it difcult for them to keep their wits. This was a really tough time for those men, if not the toughest, Carlson said. They were marines, though, and they hung in there and did what they had to do to survive. Eventually, an amphibious Patrol Bomber plane piloted by U.S. Navy Lt. George Davidson would arrive to rescue the stranded men. Having to land in high seas and dangerous weather conditions, Davidsons plane would see one of its two engines ripped off after three attempted landing passes. Because of that, David son and his plane would not be able to take off. He knew he couldnt take off but he still wanted to get these men out of the water, said the late Davidsons wife, Bar bara Davidson, of Orange Park. Davidson and his aircraft crew at tempted to pull eight men into the plane by roping all of the rafts together but the rope snapped under the weight, releas ing ve men back into the water. For over three hours, Davidson maneuvered the plan around until he was able to bring those ve men onto the plane. Similar to Hansens experience with her father, Davidson didnt learn much of the story until much later in her life. He explained to me that he had res cued some marines in the Pacic during the war but that was about it, Davidson said. He was like most pilots and sol diers that went through that war. They didnt talk about what they went through or what they did. Nobody was overly-anx ious to talk about what happened during the war, even with a disaster like this. After rescuing the men from the wa ter, a Navy Destroyer ship rescued them and returned them to land, according to Hansen. Four months later, almost all of the pilots that survived that day would found themselves in the cockpit of another plane, continuing the ght in the Pacic. Thats what you did back then, Carl son said. They hadnt had their chance to ght yet. They put it behind them and got back out there. Merritt would go on to be investigated by the military with a case that would end with what Carlson called a slap on the wrist. The men who survived, and the fami lies of the men who didnt, would never truly learn of why what happened that day happened. According to Carlson, in their close circle, they knew it was Mer ritts fault but to what degree, they would never learn. From that point forward, though, escorts became mandatory. That was their legacy, Carlson said. They changed the military in an impact ful and important way forever. Seventy-four years after the event, Davidson said she misses the men, in cluding her husband who passed away in October 2014. She said she will never forget their humor, bravery and camara derie. These men were one big family and they had such a great sense of humor and they maintained that even through all they went through, Davidson said through tears. They faced death together and subsequently, loved life together. 100 from page 6 since she moved here, said Myra Lewis, who works with Buff at the Se nior Center and Lake Area Ministries. Shes always been active and always been a part of everything here. To say that Buff stays active is an understatement, maintaining a level of activity that would be high for someone decades younger than 100. She volun teers at the Keystone Heights Senior Center where she serves daily meals to the centers clients, most of whom are much younger than Buff. She also helps out with Lake Area Ministries in Keystone, an organization she has stayed involved with for decades. She just loves everybody, and in turn, they love her back, said her son, Gene Coble. Everybody [in Keystone] is her neighbor, shes friendly to every body she meets. Coble remembers growing up in Keystone where his mother was known for her ambitious spirit and kind na ture. As he grew older and had kids of his own, and those kids had kids, and so on, their family grew into dozens of people who looked up to Rachel and aimed to be active members of the Key stone community with many sticking around. Some of Buffs greatand greatgreat-grandchildren attended the party last Friday. She always liked to be doing some thing, Coble said. Up until a couple years back she was still jogging three to ve miles a day. Stories about Buff and her energetic nature were the theme of the day. If you talk to her, youll understand why her se cret to aging gracefully is to not be com placent. Get out and get some exercise, and watch what you eat, Buff said. Dont just sit and watch television all day! Buff also noted that she had been blessed with naturally good health and taken care of herself over the years, but for her, activity is the best medicine. When she woke up the morning of the party, she had no idea what she was in for. In her mind, she was headed to the Senior Center, like always, where she would eat her noon meal and maybe a piece of cake with her friends and colleagues at the cen ter. Instead she got the red, or in this case blue, carpet treatment. She started the day in hair and makeup before heading outside where a long white limousine was waiting to pick her up, her rst limo ride in all 100 years. As she made her way to the party, signs lined her route including a big happy birthday wish on the marquee of Johnnys Restaurant on State Road 21. Finally, she arrived at the Senior Center, but instead was taken across the road to the outdoor pavilion where the party was waiting. She was escorted from the limo through a balloon arch and down a long blue carpet to her seat at the head table. The entire event was drenched in blue Buffs favorite color and the smell of her favorite foods, fried chicken and po tato salad, lled the air while oldies kara oke serenaded guests. The whole day has been one big sur prise, Buff said, smiling. I didnt know any of this was going to happen.

22 CLAY TODAY March 8, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Police Briefs Pot grow operation busted near Orange Park ORANGE PARK An Orange Park area man was arrested March 6 for allegedly growing marijuana at his home. The investigation began with an anony mous call to the Clay County Sheriffs Of ce and led to the arrest of Clarence Richard Staples, 64, who, police said, was growing marijuana in a backyard shed in the 400 block of Neptune Road. Two detectives went to Staples house and knocked on the door but nobody answered. Shortly after, Stapless son approached the detectives from his driveway and asked if everything was OK, according to the police report. Detectives asked the younger Staples if they could check out the shed in his backyard. He obliged and allowed the de tectives into the shed, which police said, smelled strongly of marijuana. Detectives said the son quickly began breathing heavily and showing signs of nervousness. Staples called his father, Clarence Staples, and asked him to come home. When Clarence Staples arrived, po lice explained what was going on and after reading him his rights, Clarence agreed to a search of the shed. Police seized arti cial grow lights and other items from the operation but did not disclose how many plants were seized or destroyed. Police arrested Staples and trans ported him to the Clay County Jail. He was bailed out on an undisclosed amount. Child molestation charge for Jax man GREEN COVE SPRINGS A Jackson ville man was ar rested on Feb. 28 after allegedly mo lesting a victim un der 12 years of age. On Jan. 16, a mother told the Clay County Sheriffs Of ce that Jorge O.

March 8, 2018 CLAY TODAY 23 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM will be followed by a lifetime of supervised release. Leslie pleaded guilty in federal court on Oct. 21, 2017. Yesterdays sentence demonstrates the severity of the crimes committed in this case, said Chapa Lopez, U.S. attor ney. We intend to continue our pursuit in prosecuting such egregious crimes as this, in hopes that justice will be served for the victims. Andrew Leslie committed unspeakable crimes against the most vulnerable of vic tims, children so young that they literally cannot speak for themselves said John P. Cronan, acting assistant attorney general. Our prosecutors and law enforcement partners are committed to identifying and prosecuting offenders like Andrew Leslie and securing sentences like yesterdays, which ensures that he will never harm an other child. This predator has committed atroci ties that are beyond comprehension, said Charge Spero special agent. We hope yes terdays sentencing can bring some solace to the victims in their recovery process. According to admissions made in con junction with the guilty plea, during the execution of a federal search warrant at Leslies Middleburg residence, agents lo cated a digital camera next to Leslies bed. Inside of the camera was a memory card that contained a series of images depicting Leslie sexually abusing two children, one of which was an infant child and the sec ond who was approximately two years old. The two-year-old child, whom Leslie admitted was in bed with Leslie at the time law enforcement agents entered the residence, was found in the residence and rescued. Forensic analysis of other digital devic es seized from the residence revealed that Leslie had produced, received, distributed and possessed numerous images and vid eos depicting child pornography. This case was investigated by U.S. Im migration and Customs Enforcements Homeland Security Investigations and the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce. Assistant U.S. Attorney D. Rodney Brown of the Middle District of Florida and Trial Attorney Lauren E. Britsch of the Criminal Divisions Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section prosecuted the case.

Right Here in Clay County! By Wayne Hobbs Environmental Horticulture Agent W hat do you do after a long day at work or when stress just gets to be a bit too much? We often nd something that releases this stress and allows the physical and mental toll to subside. How ever, your plants can become stressed as well and they do not have the option of watching a favorite movie or taking a nap. It is up to you to limit the stresses they face as much as possible. What stresses plants? Plants can be stressed by many dif ferent parts of their environment, usually anything that alters their optimal grow ing conditions. Too much rain or irriga tion, drought, disease, wind, pests, lack of essential nutrients, frost and physical damage can all work to lower the quality of plants lives and can lead to even more issues. Eects of Plant Stress How can you tell your plants are stressed? Look for signs that the plant is not growing properly, such as a slower growth rate, a lack of leaves, discolored fo liage, or wilting among others. Sometimes these issues can even look like disease. A big sign of stress is leaf, fruit or blos som drop. Citrus was heavily stressed this year by the weather, leading to a much lower yield than normal as they shed their fruit to survive the wet summer and Hur ricane Irma. This will occur in other plants as well. Stress can also make a plant much more likely to have disease or pest issues. Turf that stays too wet will often get fungal or insect issues so it becomes key to man age your irrigation properly and ooding can make it likely a tree could be attacked by insect pests. Limiting Plant Stress So, what can you do to limit the stress in the garden and landscape? The best place to start is to research the needs of your plants and provide optimal growth conditions. One part that is often over looked is to make sure they have the prop er soil conditions, light and temperatures to thrive before they are planted. A plant that is improperly placed will always have issues. To nd out the needs of your speci mens, check http://edis.ifas.u.edu or con tact your local UF/IFAS Extension Ofce for help. Once planted, make sure to manage ir rigation and fertilizer properly. Mulch can also be used in beds to slow the loss of water and to improve soil conditions but remember that if left against the stems of plants, it can lead to further stress. Cut all turfgrass at the proper height because if you allow it to grow too tall be tween mowings or scalping it too short, can lead to major issues. Only prune plants Stress management for plants Wayne Hobbs PHOTO PROVIDED BY WAYNE HOBBS, UF/IFAS Ambrosia beetles (as shown by the tubes on this trunk) are known to attack trees that have become stressed. can lead to major issues. Only prune plants when needed and do so at the proper time of the year. A common example of this is when shrubs are hedged too frequently, leading to death of branches or when green fronds are pruned from palms which causes them to lose their stored energy, which attracts palm weevils. Another overlooked stressing agent is also trafc over a plants root area. Heavy machinery, vehicles, or even piles of dirt and debris near a plant can result in plant stress and even death. Finally, keep an ac tive lookout for disease and pests in the landscape (at least once a week) so that issues can be dealt with before they esca late.

He had a pretty massive injury to re cover from in his junior year and it was iffy if he was going to return, said Clay coach Jim Reape. Hes a tough kid and worked hard through the therapy to get it done. To days the proof that makes it a good story. Also with Green on the podium for Clay was senior Kurt Jackson, wno lost in the 195 nal via pin to Lake Highland Preps Logan Andrew; Stevie Chopek at 120, who lost in the nal to Lake Highland Preps Nic Bouzakis; a fth place nish from Abbott Taylor at 182 to a 4-1 decision to American Heritages Mikey Tal Shahar, and a sixth for Daniel Porter at 113 with a pin to Car son Kirk of Astronaut. Green, returning the the Blue Devil lineup after knee and shoulder surgeries, blasted through the 160 lineup to earn a bronze medal after losing by pin in the seminal to eventual runnerup Colin Na tion, a freshman from Tampa Prep with a 46-5 record. Nation was younger brother to Troy Nation, whom Hughes beat in the 138 nal. I knew what it would take to make a comeback on the mat, said Green, who nishes at 39-5. I was wrestling strong mentally in the beginning knowing that the injuries would make things painful and sore. I just tried to push through it. In his opening two matches, Green dis played no recoil from his standard strongarmed throwing tactics and aggressive pushes into opponents to win by pin and a 15-2 major decision. I kept thinking this is feeling good, said Green. In the semi, I just got caught and he pinned. Green quickly made the mental adjust ment to ready himself for a run at a medal; being sixth two years ago, and stepped into the consolation nal with a 12-2 major de cision over Osvani Ley, a 52-3 senior from Cardinal Gibbons. Made all the therapy and training worthwhile, said Green. From there, I knew I was okay and the aches and pains would not stop me, said Green. Also wrestling for Clay were Cale Hoskinson at 126 (0-2); Gabe Peddycord at 132 (0-2); Dylan Taylor at 152 (1-2); Carson Yost at 170 (1-2) and Ryan Rivers at 285 (1-2).

Midway between south and southwest Courtesy of UNAAthletics.com FLORENCE, Ala. After one season as receivers coach at the University of Ten nessee-Chattanooga, former University of North Alabama receivers coach Ryan Aplin is returning to UNA as offensive coordina tor. Aplin is a graduate of Fleming Island High School where he played quarterback and also was a guard on the Golden Eagles basketball team. Aplin led the Golden Ea gle football team to a region playoff game against Bartram Trail High School in 2010. Aplin, 27, follows Steadman Campbell in the role as offensive coordinator at North Alabama. Campbell served as UNAs offen sive coordinator in 2016 and 2017 and will now take the reins of the Lions defense as defensive coordinator. Brett Borden, who was UNAs defensive coordinator last sea son, has taken a medical sales job and left the coaching profession. Ryan is a very passionate and very involved coach and he played quarterback and coached in the offensive system that we would like to run, said UNA head coach Chris Wil lis of Aplin. When we looked at lling positions on our staff, we didnt look at just the position but wanted to get the best coach and the best t. Ryan is a great t for us as far as gelling with our players and coaches and hell help us in recruiting. Willis said he expects Campbell, in his 13th season at UNA, to excel coaching the Aplin named to North Alabama football staff Lions defense. I think Steadman will do a great job with our defense, said Willis. He was originally a defensive coach who made the switch to the offensive side and has done a great job there. Hell know what defenses have given us trouble and how to attack an offense. During his previous stint at UNA in 2016, Aplin coached the UNA receivers as the Lions posted an 11-2 record, won Gulf South Conference and Super Region 2 championships and advanced to the NCAA Division II National Championship Game. Prior to coming to UNA, Aplin had served as a graduate assistant coach at Auburn University under Gus Malzahn in 2015 and had spent two years as an ad ministrative intern at Ole Miss under Hugh Freeze. A former two-time Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year at quarterback for Ar kansas State University where he played under both Freeze and Malzahn, Aplin led the Redwolves to back-to-back conference championships in 2011 and 2012. He be came the rst person in the history of the Sun Belt Conference to receive the Male StudentAthlete of the Year award twice. Under Freezes tutelage in 2011, Aplin threw for 3,588 yards and 19 touchdowns (with 16 interceptions) and rushed for 10 more scores. With Malzahns help in 2012, Aplin upped his accuracy to 68 percent and cut down on his interceptions, throw ing just four. He was responsible for 30 to tal touchdowns, throwing for 24 and rush ing for six more. He completed his four-year career with more than 25 combined single-game, sea son and career school records and became the Sun Belt Conferences all-time leader in completions, passing yards and total of fense. Aplin is originally from Tampa, Fla., and graduated from Fleming Island High School near Jacksonville. He earned a bachelors degree in exercise science from Arkansas State in 2012 with a cumulative GPA of better than 3.3. He is married to the former Victoria Price of Fleming Island and they have two sons, Maverick and Hawkins. Willis said the Lions still have to ll a full-time position for a receivers coach and will hire a restricted earnings coach to work with the defensive line.

From the start, the Raiders stampeded their way through the rst two innings with a ton of help from Mauldin to build a strong 6-0 lead that the Broncos could never overcome. They plateaued a little bit, but then the homerun by Addy sparked it said Raiders Head Coach Lee Taylor. Mauldin drove in runs in the rst and second inning, then when her team needed a shot in the arm, she took the rst pitch of her at bat in the fth to send the ball out of the park for the nal Raider score. The Broncos tried several times, but would leave girls stranded on base as the Raider defense kicked it into high gear for the home 7-4 victory. After sending the rst three Middleburg batters back to the dugout; two striking out, the Raiders stepped up to the plate and put the Broncos on notice. Carrington Robin son was the recipient of a Payton Mahon error and made it safely on base. Ramsey Phillips wasted no time as she took pitch one, and sent it to deep left eld for an RBI double. Jenna Hiers sacriced to move Phillips over the third base. Next was Ad dyson Mauldins turn as she laid down a perfect bunt that was not played well at all. She was safe on rst, driving Phillips in for score number two. When pitching resumed, the catcher couldnt hold onto a McKenzie Bush pitch and Mauldin made her way to second. With only one out, Kayla Saunders got the signal for bunt, and again made her way onto rst, this time by way of an error by rst baseman Payton Ma hon. As Mauldin scored, Saunders made her way to third. 3-0 Raiders. The Broncos got the last two outs to close the inning, but the damage was done real early. Asked if he was happy with his teams batting, Taylor said For tonight; yes. To night, they did pretty good, but we have some things we have to work on, we have r to change a few styles here and there and then they should be ready. In the top of the second, Middleburg would get Payton Mahon, and Haleigh Wright to second and third base, but leave them there as the next three batters would all be retired. Back at work in the batters box, the Raiders again wasted no time as Samantha Kinsall continued taking advan tage of the issue the Broncos were having with bunts. With Kinsall safe, Kalli Winder sacriced down the third base line to ad vance Kinsall as Winder was out at rst.

In the girls game, senior Kierra Marquis scored six goals, scooped four ground balls, made four steals and won seven of 11 faceoffs to lead the Golden Eagles, who return seven of 10 starters from last years 9-7 squad. Not only does she score, but she wins ground balls and the draws,Ž Fleming Island coach Clint Lyons said of Marquis. If we do not have her, it is a different game.Ž Marquis, who plays mostly mid elder but spends some time at attack, scored three goals in the rst ten minutes as Fleming Island shot to a 6-0 halftime lead. She also scored the games most critical goal, snaring a rebound and sending it back between the posts just after Forest had threatened to make it a contest by scoring two consecutive goals to open the second half. Marquis rebound ignited a string of ve straight Golden Eagles goals that put the game out of reach. Lyons considers his rst mid eld line of Marquis, Lindsey Knight and the speedy Karina Ortiz as the strength of his team. Ortiz, a junior, notched one goal Friday and led all players with ve ground balls. Katie Nichols will start for the second consecutive year at attack, and Lyons is counting on her and freshman Lexi Jordan, a natural athlete who scored a goal Friday, to pick up more of the scoring load shouldered by Marquis. Knight will also occasionally play attack. On defense, starters Bryanna Sarmento and Lacey Hawkinson return, and Lyons is hoping that a dependable defender emerges among the trio of Sarah Hines, Colbi Thykadavil and Cameron LaBelle.

Fleming Island outshot the Wildcats 26-6. The girls have once again been placed in North Floridas most competitive district along with Ponte Vedra, Bartram Trail, Creekside and Nease. Lyons believes that getting ground balls and being consistent in their passing and catching are critical if Fleming Island is to make any noise in the district. We got most of the ground balls tonight, but we were not as ef cient on offense as we could be,Ž said Lyons. Fleming Island improved to 2-2, while the Wildcats, who got two goals from middie Meleah Norris, fell to 0-3. The boys rout over the Wildcats was led by Patrick Schreiber and Eric Dobson. Schreiber, a senior who led Fleming Island in points in each of the last two seasons, scored ve goals and had two assists, while Dobson scored four goals and had four assists. Head coach John Hawley lauded Schreibers ability to score from a variety of angles, but believes that Dobson, a sophomore, may have surpassed him. Eric Dobson is dominant,Ž said Hawley. He is the best all-around lacrosse player we have, at least offensively.Ž Daniel Horrell, Andrew Schreiber and freshman Clark Schaeffer all had multiple goals for the Golden Eagles, who evened their record at 2-2. The scoring chances were plentiful because Max Michaels and Declan Bertolini dominated the faceoffs, combining to gain possession on 18 of 21 ball drops. Hawley credits the work of assistant coach Chip Lonsdale, who was a faceoff specialist at Notre Dame, for the pairs development. SEE LACROSSE, 35

Next up was Fleming Islands 170 pounder Paul Detwiler, coming in as one of a handful of unbeaten wrestlers in all classes, who ried through his lineup with three key opponents on the other side of the bracket as his main threats; Hagerty Highs Justin Segarra, whom Detwiler beat in the region 1-3A seminal, South Dades Makaelle Fundora, whom Detwiler beat twice early in the season and Timber Creeks Brian Santiago, whom Detwiler beat for the region 1-3A title. Wrestlers from page 25 In the nal, after Segarra took out Fun dora 6-5 in the quarternals and Segarra took out Santiago 11-4 in the seminals, Detwiler smashed Segarra with a pin with 13 seconds left in the rst period. I kind of felt all along that this would happen, I just didnt want to say it, said Detwiler, who nishes at 63-0. I kind of wanted someone new for the nal, but I had a kid in the quarternal that was tough to turn and I had to work to beat him 10-3. The nal gold for Fleming Island was senior 220 pounder Ryan Smenda, who de spite a late start of the season due to foot ball region playoffs, stormed through his season unscathed until a clash with Lake Highland Preps Ben Goldin in Brandons Tony Ippolito Invite. Against Goldin, Smen da executed his now-legendary Spradle pin move as the nal buzzer sounded and lost as ofcials determined the move was n ished after the clock stopped. At the state meet, Smenda was leav ing no doubt who was the best 220 in the building with a rst round pin of 12 sec onds, a second round pin with 41 seconds left in the rst period and a rst period pin with 31 seconds left. In his nal, against Cypress Bay senior Matthew Toribio (502), Smenda slowed his game down to win 9-4 with an attempted Spradle not suc cessful in the rst period. I knew he really wanted to throw me, so I kept my hips away and just beat him with points, said Smenda, who heads to play football at Wake Forest next year. I wanted the pin the rst, but he slipped out and I didnt want to chance it. Smenda and Detwiler, together as wrestlers since Lakeside Junior High days, complete an astounding career of wres tling with Smenda having two thirds and now a gold and Detwiler a third last year and this years gold. For Clays Hughes, the faces were fa miliar on his way to gold, but the results favored his long, strong style as Hughes rst had to dispatch of Lake Highland Preps Noah Castillo, a two-time defending state champion with a one win, one loss mark with Hughes this year. Hughes faced off against Castillo in the seminal round and had to have a third period urry to pull out a 12-10 win. Hughes beat Castillo 6-4 at the state duals seminal clash in Janu ary. Probably beating Castillo a second time was harder than winning the state title, said Hughes, 38-2, Hes so fast and explosive, but I was able to watch him wrestle his quarter and saw some things. We went from 5-5 into the third period to the 12-10 nal. After dispatching of Castillo, Hughes had to reset his game plan for a more me thodical attack from Tampa Prep senior Troy Nation (41-4) who beat Hughes 11-3 at the Clay Rotary Invitational in February. He got a head and arm on me and kept turning me at Clay and won so I knew he was strong, said Hughes, who won the nal 5-2. Nation is a more methodical wrestler and I knew I had to be patient on him. It was tough from the high-ying at tack of Castillo to settle into Nations ap proach. STAFF PHOTOS BY RANDY LEFKO Fleming Islands Jacob Sandoval throws power move in 126 pound match. Sandoval nished fth. By Randy Lefko Sports Editor KISSIMMEE Oakleaf Highs Ryan Ro sano got as close to the Class 3A nal as he could, but happened upon a defend ing state champion in his seminal to halt the Cinderella march to a Knights wrestling nalist. It was disappointing to lose like that, but he was the champ, said a dejected Rosano, who completed his journey with a fourth place medal after winning a rst-ever region title last week for Oak leaf. I put it all out there, I think. For Rosanos second trip to Kissim CLASS 3A WRESTLING Fleming Islands 132 pound wrestler Jaquan English nished fourth in Class 3A. Oakleafs Ryan Rosano had to face o against defending champ in seminal. mee and the Class 3A wrestling champi onship festival, the ride has been more than fruitful for the hard-charging se nior, now at 40-5. I think I learned a lot about myself that can go a long way in life, said Ro sano. Rosano entered the arena with two rounds of wins; a 6-3 win and a 3-0 win before facing off with defending state champion Bretli Reyna of South Dade High, also the defending Class 3A team champions. Reyna had his way with Rosano with fast-moving offense. SEE ROSANO, 35

His style was not a good t for Ryan who is a strong, in your face wres tler. He had a great season. Also in Class 3A, Fleming Island had a handful of top six medalwinners with Louis Gagliardo taking third at 106; Albie Sne daker at 120 (1-2); Jacob Sandoval at 126 for fth; Jaquan English at 132 for fourth; Tyler Williams at 138 (0-2) and Jose Con cepcion at 285 for third. Gagliardo, third in Class 1A the past two seasons while at Clay, lost 10-7 in his opening match to eventual runnerup Jaekus Hines of Osceola then battled back with ve wins for his bronze medal includ ing a consolation seminal rematch win over Ryan Rowland of Hagerty, who beat Gagliardo in the region 1-3A seminal be fore winning the region title. Sandoval, at 126, nished off a strong senior season with his fth after losing by pin to eventual champion Malyke Hines, also a defending state champion. Concepcion, at 285, returned to better his sixth place nish of last year, with a seminal loss to South Dades Treyvonne Jackson, 7-2, before holding on for a 1-0 over Dion Bergan of Osceola for third. Jackson was runnerup to unbeaten Will Putnam (33-0) of Plantation. Michaels is a dual sport guy, and some of his football physical tough ness comes to the fore, said Hawley. But Declan has come in for extra work before practice and pushed Max, and that has made Max improve. Bertolini was a perfect 10 for 10 on faceoffs Friday. As much as Patrick Schreiber, Dobson and the rest of the offense lled the stat sheet Friday, Hawley believes the Golden Eagles defense will be the teams strength this year. Justin Szafranski, Alec Goria, Addison DeAbreu-Reese and Zane Phillips, the four players who manned the three defense spots and the long-stick mid die position in 2017, return for their fourth year. The seniors smothered Forest on Friday, allowing just twelve shots in the game, and only two in the second half. They are athletic, they are physi cal, they are keeping guys close to them, said Hawley. Korbin Hamilton returns at goalie, and Hawley has high hopes for the junior. Korbin has developed nicely and is great in the goal, said Hawley. We are still working on some of the out-ofthe-goal strategy.

With two outs and two runners in scoring posi tion, Mauldin nailed a hard shot to Bronco shortstop Emily Bach, driving both Phillips and Hiers home; 6-0 Raiders. In the top of the fth, Haleigh Campbell drove a two RBI single to give her Bron cos some new life. A tie was only two runs away. That hope was dashed again when Ad dyson Mauldin was the rst batter up of the inning and took the rst pitch dished up, sending it out of the park in deep left eld. I knew that she was going to throw me high and I like high pitches, so I put it in my mind that if she was going to lay one low for me, I was going to take it said Ad dyson Mauldin of her homerun at bat. As soon as it left the bat, I knew it. Try not to look, try just to sprint to get on base as fast as I can, but I knew it. It feels good and I love hitting homeruns. At the same time, it doesnt stop; you never know what can happen so you just keep grinding, keep working hard. In the games last six outs for the Bron cos, they could do no better than get four runners on base, only to leave them there as the Raider defense would come to life and lasso the Broncos with a 7-4 loss.

If there are none, the petition must so state; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
