A lifelong resident of Clay County, Lancaster had a 39-year career in the Clay County School District where he had served as a teacher and vice principal at Orange Park High School. Prior to teach ing government and history, Lancaster had a short stint as a Florida Highway Pa trol ofcer after graduating from Georgia Southern College. He would later go on to serve 12 years on the Clay County Board of County Commissioners from 1992-2004. Former county commissioner Dale Wil son grew up alongside Lancaster in Green Cove Springs where they went to elemen tary school together and played Little League baseball on the same team.

SEE LANCASTER, 10 CLAY TODAY By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer ORANGE PARK The quality of life in Clay County continues to be on an up ward trend, according to a recently-re leased study. The Clay County Chamber of Com merce released its third edition of the Quality of Life Progress Report during a breakfast meeting on April 17 at the Thrasher-Horne Center on the campus of St. Johns River State College. I think what this report certainly shows is that Clay County is a place people want to live and enjoying living in, said John Tabor, who presented the report to attendees. The report features data from 2016 and survey statistics from 2017 and according to Tabor, the report shows a general increase in the quality of life for the area. Despite a few negatives, most of the ndings show a positive trend. From 2000 to 2016, Floridas popula tion grew by 29 percent and that growth is reected in Clay County as well which experienced a 7.6 percent increase from 2010 to 2016. As of 2016, the countys population sits at 208,311. As of last year, 51 percent of those who decided to call the Clay County home feel very satised while another 42 percent feel somewhat satised. The other 7 percent of people are not satis ed with their quality of life. While it is not wholly known, the 7 percent that are not satised might be feeling that way due to their annual wage as Clay Coun tys average annual wage sits more than $10,000 below the Florida average and at least $4,000 below the neigh boring counties. According to Tabor, despite a lower annual wage, people still want to move here and work within Clay Coun ty, demonstrated by a continual in crease in employ ment growth. Employment growth in the area is denitely posi tive and weve ex perienced almost 30 percent growth since 2004, Ta bor said. I think the factor that ex plains some of the other metrics ear lier is that these jobs are lower-paying jobs. Theyre here, thats good and wed rather have them than not but weve got some work to do with the higher-paying Report life is good in Clay John Tabor George Egan SEE LIFE, 11

Its a wonder he didnt turn around and go right back home to New York because that January it rained all day every day, some said. This wasnt a light rain or a sprinkle. It was a frog strangler. People wondered what they would do next ƒ rust or mildew. He was one of many Yankees, young and old, who were inspired by stories of Floridas vast resources and raw potential told by Union soldiers returning home after the Civil War. Unlike many others, Hart was well prepared with capital, a shrewd business sense and a charming willingness to work hard and learn about the people and the place. He was also lucky because on the docks in Jacksonville just fresh off the boat he attracted the attention of Col. S.B. Thompson. Thompson was a powerful and in uential Middleburg landowner and early settler with additional plantations and business interests in Madison and Lake City. In 1850, there were two main streets in Middleburg, Main and Thompson. Col. Thompson owned the hotel, general store and three large cotton warehouses. But in the War Between the States he was on the wrong side. On October 24, 1864, the Fourth Massachusetts Cavalry attacked the settlement and burned his hotel and all three warehouses to the ground. Col. Thompson was luckier than most because he owned vast acres of land, The logging industry depended on crude carts and the muscle of men and mules to recover after the Civil War.Rich timber resources sparked recovery after Civil War SEE TIMBER, 16 By Kile Brewer Staff WriterGREEN COVE SPRINGS … The Green Cove City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to accelerate new public works projects. After nding mold behind wall panels in the current Green Cove Springs Public Works Facility, the city will expedite the demolition of the current of ces and move ahead with a planned $1.6 million replacement facility. During Hurricane Irma, all of the buildings on the site experienced water damage,Ž said Public Works Director Mike Null. Around February, staff began to expect that there might be some environmental concerns in the building.Ž Null said that after having the buildings air quality tested they found problems and immediately moved staff out of the main ofces and into the break room area while they investigated further and began removing some of the affected areas. We removed the drywall and paneling from the exterior walls in the current ofces and found mold growing behind every wall,Ž Null said. While the public works staff is adjusting to life without of ces, they are waiting on air test results from the break room, which may be affected by mold as well. Should staff have to vacate their temporary ofces, Null noted that they would need to seek empty of ce space somewhere else in City Hall or somewhere else in the city that would have to be rented until they had a safe facility again. Null said that in the wake of this discovery, his department is asking that council move forward on the reconstruction of the of ce building sooner than planned, but only the of ce building, not the parking lot and other planned improvements that were included with the of ce in Phase 1 of the planned reconstruction. With this new schedule, the urgent replacement of the main of ce building would account for about $1.6 million including demolition and site work. Wendell Hall of Bhide and Hall Architects said doing the building, parking lot and other planned improvements would cost an estimated $4.5 million. Null said there is $500,000 budgeted each year over the next three years for capital project construction that could be used to accelerate the process and begin construction as soon as possible. Members of the council agreed, but council member Van Royal raised concerns over the estimated cost per square foot given by Hall, saying that for this project they had estimated almost $200 per square foot for a metal building being built by a public entity when he was aware of much more expensive buildings being built for, he said, at least $20-$40 less per square foot. $2 million is a lot for a little town,Ž Royal said. Im [working] every day in this marketplace and I dont have anything right now that comes anywhere close to these prices.Ž Royal and Hall discussed options that might drive the price down, with Royal suggesting design-build, and Hall opting for a system where a construction manager is brought in to connect a builder with the architect so that estimates can come from contractors who know the current value of construction materials. Hall admitted that often architects are not aware of current costs of materials and this can cause estimates to be higher based on the architects conservative estimations that are taken so as not to cause sticker shock when construction costs come in higher than estimated. After investigating with the citys building department, City Manager Danielle Judd found out that a recent private construction project in the city, the new Vallencourt Construction Company headquarters, had recently been built for just over $160 a square foot with much more expensive materials and features. Council members agreed that the estimated costs were too high and would need to be reevaluated, but that they were looking to move forward with the process as quickly as possible in the interest of the safety of the public works staff. Hall estimated that it would be about 60-90 days before construction drawings would be complete and they could actually begin. Royal made a motion that staff was to City to spend $1.6 million to replace building riddled with moldSEE MOLD, 8

By Eric Cravey B eing able to have a casual conversation with the cashier at Walmart may not sound like something to aspire to, but for our neighbors who have yet to master the English language, speaking to the cashier is a big deal. How about getting your cash from the ATM? Or, going to the doctor and being able to explain how and where you hurt? Not a biggie for you and me, but, again, huge for people who are struggling to learn English. While these tasks may seem small, or even petty to some, they are downright daunting for many of the men and women who reach out to the Clay County Literacy Coalition every day for help. If you were fortunate enough to be born and raised in the U.S., chances are high that you can balance a check book, apply for a loan, conduct a job search and read a book. Not to mention, carry on a conversation in English. In other words, we take for granted the basic things that allow us to be selfsuf cient contributing members of the community. We can hold a job, take out a loan, raise children and pay taxes, etc. However, these are not easy tasks for speakers of other languages. Thats what the Clay County Literacy Coalition does. Its the only nonpro t serving adults in Clay County who need help learning how to read. But, more than that, the Coalition changes peoples lives. Its also the only nonpro t in Clay County that helps our neighbors become U.S. citizens as well. On Monday, Board President Darling Stokes thanked some of the Coalitions 22 tutors with a luncheon to cheer them on, hear their success stories and keep them motivated to keep helping others. One tutor, who lives in Jacksonville, is a retired electrical engineer who had a successful career in Silicon Valley. He currently tutors more than 20 students in mathematics each week. Another tutor is currently helping a man from Vietnam learn English, so he can get a better job, become a citizen and ful ll his plan to get married. These stories usually go untold in the same manner that you and I hardly ever encounter the men and women who need these services. They remain the hidden. They hardly will look at you in the Walmart or try to say hi in passing because they feel like outsiders. But, in reality, they want the same things you and I want. At one point, when I was a Literacy Coalition tutor, the Coalition served men and women who … when combined … spoke 48 languages other than English. And guess what? The need hardly ever goes away. There are men and women constantly asking for help with some aspect of literacy, but there are not enough tutors to go around. My hope is that someone reading this today will see it and become moved to commit at least one hour a week to tutor someone in need.

One woman was injured and 10 OpinionsBy Kyle Isakower T he Trump Administration unveiled an agenda for energy dominanceŽ shortly after taking of ce, promising to curb the global in uence of countries like Russia and China with American energy exports. Whether or not the administration succeeds will depend a great deal on ongoing trade talks with Canada and Mexico. U.S. negotiators continue to negotiate terms to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement, the trade pact between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. NAFTA has fostered a thriving North American energy market that currently supports millions of U.S. jobs and keeps costs down for American consumers. If negotiators agree to eliminate or weaken NAFTAs Investor-State Dispute Settlement, we would open the door for Chinese and Russian energy interests to exert their in uence right here in North America. Thats a national security outcome that no proponent of U.S. energy dominanceŽ would understand or support. NAFTA eliminated tariffs on several oil and natural gas products between the United States, Canada and Mexico. In so doing, it has enabled each of our nations to bene t from one anothers considerable energy resources and technical capacities. Consider Americas relationship with Mexico. The United States is a net importer of crude oil from Mexico. Yet much of that product is re ned in American facilities and exported back to Mexico. In fact, Mexico receives roughly a fth of all rened petroleum product exports from the United States. Our southern neighbor is also a signi cant and growing importer of American natural gas, accounting for a whopping 60.2 percent of Americas natural gas exports. Meanwhile, Canada accounts for 61 percent of Americas crude oil exports and approximately a third of natural gas exports. This economic relationship has been enormously bene cial for Americans. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently estimated that trade with Canada and Mexico supports nearly 14 million American jobs. SEE NAFTA, 5 SEE READING, 5 SEE HISTORY, 8

US companies won 15 percent of the 47 blocks awarded to foreign investors since 2015, while companies from Russia and China combined won 13 percent of these blocks. This could change quickly if NAFTA falls apart. By 2030, America's diminished role in Mexico's energy economy could force that nation to rely more on investment from Russia and China.

If you enjoy the rights and privileges we share as Americans, one of the greatest gifts we could ever give someone is to help them become a citizen as well. Why does the Literacy Coalition get involved in Citizenship training? Because conversational English is a key facet of the U.S. Citizenship test. "If the applicant generally understands and responds meaningfully to questions relevant to his or her naturalization eligibility, then he or she has suf ciently demonstrated the ability to speak English,ÂŽ according to the Department of Homeland Security website.

Within a few years, China and Russia had swooped in, loaning the nation $60 billion to strengthen its energy industry. In a post-NAFTA world, Mexico could easily shift to using funds from Russia and China to dramatically increase its own production and re ning capacity, and making it less reliant on the United States as a result. Fortunately, U.S. trade representatives can avoid that scenario by ensuring that NAFTA is not only preserved, but strengthened. Ideally, a renegotiated trade pact would maintain an open energy market between the United States, Mexico and Canada by making NAFTA permanent and strengthening ISDS. Today's vibrant, integrated North American energy market has served Americans well for years, while also keeping our nation's global energy rivals at bay. Failing to preserve NAFTA would leave America less prosperous, less secure and less in uential around the world.

By Wesley LeBlanc Staff WriterGREEN CITY SPRINGS … The City of Green Cove Springs was treated to an event that managed to capture the interest of over 400 unique visitors, consisting of both people that call the city home and those from outside of it, some driving from as far as Palatka and Orange Park to grab a bite to eat. Food Truck Friday attendees brought their lawn chairs and coolers packed with beer, soda and water as they chomped down on the offerings of three different food trucks while watching Baker County band, The Lonely Highway, perform an eclectic mix of old and new country and more. I grew up in the area, moved to North Carolina and just moved back [to Green Cove Springs] in December and it is so exciting to see things like this happening,Ž Wanda Duncan said. They need to keep doing these because I dont know if you can tell, but there is a lot of community support for this event and events like this.Ž The planning for Food Truck Friday began in January but its been in discussion since Planning and Zoning board member Ed Gaw and City Council member Van Royal bought two pieces of property in the city. According to Gaw, he and Royal discussed what they could do with these plots of land. We thought, well, the city just put $2.1 million into Spring Park and theres two vacant plots across from the park and right next to the theater and city hall.,Ž Gaw said. The land was strategically located and Van and I jumped on it and now, weve got Food Truck Friday.Ž Gaw said the event far exceeded any and all expectations he and the city had. In fact, all three of the food trucks in attendance sold out of all their food. Area restaurants also saw a bump in business. Ronnies, La Casita and Corner Pocket … which are in a one-to-two block area … all found themselves with fairly robust dinner traf c as well. While everyone in attendance seemed to enjoy themselves, there as one concern: will there be more trucks? According to Gaw, there will be a significant increase in food trucks. He expects a minimum of seven trucks at the next Food Truck Friday on May 11. He also plans to have different food truck offering different foods at each event. I know some people wanted more trucks but with food trucks, its very tricky for a rst-time event like this,Ž Gaw said. Food trucks have to know how many people will be there and they determine if its worth it for them. Its a negotiation but Inaugural Food Truck Friday deemed successnow that we know the success of the event, there will certainly be more next time.Ž Lee Varn drove from Orange Park to attend the event and while he wished that there were more options available, he was impressed with the available offerings, which included a sno-cone, cajun and cuban food trucks. I mean, this is great,Ž Varn said, taking another bite of his freshly-made Cuban sandwich. Next time, I hope there are more trucks here and Im sure there will be but its okay because this is delicious.

Not only were the consumers in atten dance happy, but the food truck operators were as well.

These kind of events help build commu nities and obviously, the more people that show up, the better it is for everyone, in cluding us. While the food trucks in attendance were making money, Gaw said money isnt a priority for the city in terms of Food Truck Friday. According to Gaw, it is a Green Cove Springs promotional event. He said its for the people of the area, and out side of it, to come and enjoy the town and see how far it has come. Eventually, Gaw anticipates the event being such a hit that both the west side and the east side of Wal nut Street will be used to host food trucks and a band at each side. This is only the beginning. Food Truck Friday will help bring people to this won derful city, Gaw said. Looking down the road, this event is going to do nothing but grow.

Clay County of cials said faulty wiring may be the cause of a mid-day re at Bible Baptist Church at 3060 Moody Ave. near Orange Park. An apparent joyride in a Clay County Sheriffs Of ce cruiser began on Loch Rane Boulevard and ended on Lakeshore Boulevard with the cars lights ashing and headlights on after Lt.

An eight-hour County Commission meeting led to commissioners instating a 60-day cooling off periodŽ for the CETA program after County Comptroller George Carlisle found discrepancies in how scal responsibilities are to be shared with the county and the program. A group of residents formed Clay County Citizens Coalition to ght the Jacksonville Electric Authoritys plan to build a coalred electric generating plant here in Clay County.History from page 4 begin looking at ways to fund Phase 1 of the project as quickly as possible, while Hall was to nd a construction manager that he thought would be a good t for the project moving forward. In other council business, the city will move forward with ling an annexation report with the county which will begin public hearings concerning the citys plan to annex ve commercial properties on their way to annexing the 70-acre St. Johns Landing housing complex. This annexation would place ve properties within the city limits including a state-owned building that also houses a dockside substation operated by the Clay County Sheriffs Of ce, a privately-owned piece of land referred to as the Huntley Parcel, the EZ Stop Food Store, a Verizon Mold from page 2 retail location and an Advance Auto Parts location. Of the ve properties, two have already given consent to the annexation, the state building and the Huntley Parcel, with an agreement from Verizon in the works. The other two property owners are not opposed and their participation is expected, but, due to tax season and corporate policy, they are moving slower than usual. Despite waiting on the other two for consent, the city only needs 50 percent of the property owners from the proposed annexation to consent to the process, and it was noted that the two already received account for 55 percent, but the city, in good faith, wants everyone on board. My goal, and what Ive been telling people, is to get all ve of them in,Ž said Janis Fleet, Development Services director. I feel con dent that in the next week well have three, and all ve in a month or so.Ž The move would really only affect ad valorem taxes, with most of the buildings already hooked up to the citys electric utility, the water utility, or both. However, Judd mentioned that the second part of this annexation, containing the residential dwellings, would add to the citys utility revenue as St. Johns Landing operates its own water plant and would be hooked up to the citys water utility post-annexation. [St. Johns Landing] has already submitted an application,Ž Fleet said. We have to kind of go through the jigsaw puzzle to get to them.Ž Council members didnt have much opposition to the annexation proceedings, and all seemed in agreement that this was still something they are interested in pursuing as part of the natural growth of the city. Following the 5-0 vote, the report will move on to the Board of County Commissioners and the annexation process will be underway. At the beginning of Tuesdays meeting, the council also discussed medical marijuana treatment centers. Council members discussed amended ordinance language that originated from the citys Planning and Zoning board that would dene drug sales in city code and add conditions for operation of medical marijuana treatment centers within the city limits. The amended language didnt receive much contention from council who have seen this issue come before them time and again throughout two moratoriums and several scheduled discussions on agendas since the state MMTC bill passed by a 70 percent margin in the 2016 general election. Following some clari cation on the zones where MMTCs would be allowed, with council members Royal and Pam Lewis questioning placement within RPO zoning, which would allow the centers on the fringe between professional of ces and residential housing. City Attorney Jim Arnold reminded the council that only a limited number of the facilities will exist and that it would be unlikely that one would locate within an area zoned as RPO, but he and Fleet agreed to look into possibly removing this distinction. As invisible as the state wants them to be, they want them to be visible,Ž Arnold said. They dont want them to be tucked back around somewhere where you dont know where they are and its hard to nd them.Ž Currently, the citys exemptions within RPO did note that pharmacies could be placed within areas designated as RPO, and the state law says that MMTCs have to be allowed where pharmacies are allowed. I realize that the [State of Florida] statute seems stringent but it just concerns me,Ž Lewis said. This is a perfect example, I just dont like the state telling us what we have to do.Ž Council voted 4-1, with Lewis making up the single no vote, to move forward to a second and nal public hearing at the May 1 council meeting.

REXTON EMERALD 30 $1699 PER PAIR Lancaster from page 1 graduating from Clay High in 1965, both Wilson and Lancaster enrolled at St. Johns River Community College. Later, as adults, both Lancaster and Wilson would serve on the colleges board of trustees. In high school, I was president of Student Council and he was my vice president. We later went on to St. Johns River and he was president of Student Government and I was vice president,Ž said Wilson, who warmly describes Lancaster as a gentle spirit.Ž He loved Clay County, he was a big family person and he did so many positive things for Clay County we cannot enumerate them all. He was just a wonderful man,Ž Wilson said, who served on the county commission with Lancaster. Lancaster comes from a tradition of public service as his father Lanny Lancaster also served on the county commission before going on to serve as Supervisor of Elections. Lancasters younger brother, Scott Lancaster, was elected as Clay County Sheriff after having risen through the ranks in that agency. Wilson said Larry Lancasters rst love was education. After I graduated from law school and came back and started practicing law, Larry was in education and education was his rst love. He wouldve been a wonderful school superintendent. He loved children and he made many contributions to our school system,Ž Wilson said. When Lancaster retired from the District 5 seat on the county commission in 2004, four newcomers vied for his seat. Prior to the election, Lancaster sat down with political newcomer candidate Harold Rutledge and gave him what Rutledge described as fatherly advice. We spoke a lot before the election and we met several times and he explained some of the ropes, some of the ins and outs of the job, the good, the bad. It was the kind of advice like a father would give a son and I cant thank him enough for doing that,Ž Rutledge said.Rutledge, who went on to serve one term on the BCC, characterizes Lancaster as a statesman. What a huge loss for our county … he was truly a statesman, not a politician. I could talk about Larry for hours. I thought he always did whats best for the county and not whats best for him. It might not have been popular, but it was the right thing to do.Ž Larry was an extremely honest person. We didnt always agree on every issue, but you always knew he was sincere,Ž Wilson said. Former Clay County School Board member Lisa Graham remembered Lancaster for his work as an educator. I appreciate all he did for Clay County and the school system! Praying for the family,Ž Graham wrote on social media. Orange Park entrepreneur Jane DiLoreto offered her prayers for Lancasters family. Larry was one of a kind. I am so sorry for you and his family. I know a void in your life had been created. I pray for your strength and faith,Ž DiLoreto wrote in a social media post. Former Orange Park Council member Eugene Nix honored Lancaster for his years of public service. [An] Amazing person for sure and Im a better man for having known and spent time with him. Hes in a beautiful place now and will be missed by many. A true community servant in many ways,Ž Nix wrote. An active member of First United Methodist Church of Green Cove Springs, Lancaster served with various community organizations, such as the Clay County Fair Association, Clay County Cattlemans Association, 4-H, Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch and the Town of Orange Park Planning Committee. He was predeceased by his parents: Lanny and Frances Lancaster; wife, Thanna Jewell (Edwards) Lancaster; and son, Murray Leon Lancaster. Survivors include his wife, Dawna P. Berlin; children: Rebecca Lynn (Mike) Minigh, Joseph Earl (Shelley) Lancaster, Sharon (Joe) Ploeger and Bret Berlin; 2 brothers: Barry (Sandy) Lancaster and Scott (Stacie) Lancaster; sister, Joanie (Kevin) Bressler; and 15 grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

April 19, 2018 CLAY TODAY 11 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM r fff ntfbfrrrf ntbf ntr fnr fnfrr rff wage sectors. Tabor said people are taking the lowerpaying jobs to be closer to where they live, which for many, is Clay County. In 2010, an estimated 57.2 percent of people worked outside the county. Now, that number sits at 48 percent. For those that work in the county, though, their commute has risen from 13 minutes in 2008 to 19 minutes in 2017. There are many factors involved with [the increase in commute time] but I think one of the biggest reasons for the jump in time construction, said George Egan, pres ident of the Reinhold Corporation, said. As Im sure youre all aware, Clay is experienc ing a lot of construction but that construc tion is to improve things like commuting in the future. Since 2012, the number of home sales has climbed 61.3 percent with the me dian home sale sitting in the mid-to-upper $100,000s and 81 percent of those home owners feel safe in the neighborhood that they live in. According to Egan, this could potentially be attributed to the continued decrease in Clay County crime, a trend that follows holds true statewide. Chamber ofcials formed a partnership with St. Johns River State to compile the Quality of Life Progress Report, which will be available online and in the Chamber of Commerce ofces. It was an absolute blessing to work on this and I enjoyed this project greatly, said Carly Culver, a family metrics student at St. Johns River State. This project provided me the opportunity to really dive into [Clay County] to work with and meet new people. We got the facts and this is how it is. Culver worked with Organizational Management Professor Aaron Knowles and other students to complete the study. Ive had a lot of fun and I would en courage more to get involved, Culver said. Chamber of Commerce President Tresa Calfee said the presentation was a success. Id say this breakfast was a very suc cessful event, Calfee said. We have over 160 guests and because well be doing this every two years, which is how often well release these reports, Im already looking forward to the next one. For Egan, Ta bor, Calfee and the Clay County Chamber of Commerce, the goal of the report isnt to showcase only the positives or downplay the negative trends. Egan said the report is about providing the people of the area an in-depth and concise report of the county they chose to call home. What the report is about is informing people in this room and in our community about whats going on in the county and to give everybody a holistic view, with both the pluses and minuses, Egan said. We want to make everybody a little more articulate, a little more thought ful, about the issues that we have everyday in our county and overall, I think it was a great report. We know whats working and we know what we need to work on. Life from page 1

He was one of the 12 apostles chosen by Jesus. The pejorative title was given to him because of his re action when he heard the news that Jesus had risen from the dead. He did not actually doubt any more than the rest of the apostles. None of them believed the rst report of the resurrection that was delivered to them. Thomas missed the rst meeting of the apostles after the resurrection. It was at that meeting, when Jesus appeared, to prove to them that He was alive. Now they believed He had left the tomb of the dead and that He was alive. When they told Thomas, that they had seen the Lord, he said, I wont believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my ngers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side. Just like the other apostles, Thomas wanted personal proof before he would believe that Jesus of Nazareth had risen from the grave of death. At the next meeting of the apostles, Thomas was present. Jesus appeared again. He spoke directly to Thomas say ing, Put your nger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Stop doubting and believe! Thomas said to him, My Lord and my God! These men doubted so that we would not have to doubt. Jesus proved His res urrection with many infallible proofs, as the Bible states. We are blessed, today, to have the same evidence that was present ed to weak, doubting, questioning men, that enables us to believe, as well. We are honored by Him to be able to walk by faith not by sight, since we have been given new life in Christ. We were dead, too. In sins and trespasses. But now, in Christ Jesus, we have been brought out of the death of sin into the life of His res urrection. Doubt no longer, Thomas; by faith, see and believe! www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@ rstagcc.org Settle your doubts By Rev. Heather Harding T here is nothing more painful than the betrayal of people you have trusted. Church can be a joyful community, where our relation ships are so close, they feel like family. Many nd their purpose in the life and work of a church and nd their iden tity with a local church. When betrayal comes by church members or worse, by the leaders of the church, it can have a dev astating effect on a persons spiritual life. It is as if our sa cred home has been vandalized. Sadly, many have experi enced the pain of being hurt by a church. Churches have divided over the social issues of women in ministry, LGBTQ inclusion, divorce, and in the case of the early church, circumcision and Scriptural interpretation. In some cases, the issues may be smaller, but the pain is real. Fleming Island United Methodist Church began with 250 people on their rst service at Paterson Elementary in 1995, and then grew to have their own site. A little white World War II chapel was moved from Orange Park United Methodist Church that had previously been at Camp Blanding. This served as the sanctuary for the newly formed When betrayal, hurt comes by church Rev. Heather Harding congregation. The church grew to double its size and brought in young families, reaching people who had never been part of a church before. The church had plans drawn up to build a new sanctuary, fel lowship hall, and gymnasium. Only one of those buildings was ever completed. Pastors in the United Methodist Church are itinerant, so when the beloved found ing pastor, Dawn Lawton, moved to anoth er church, the church not only struggled with its feelings of grief as she left but also struggled to adopt a change in vision that the new pastor brought. People were hurt by this transition and many left the church. The congregation of 500 shrunk to 100. Eventually the congregation stabilized, but was never able to regain the number of members it had in the early life of the church. After a new worship center was built, the little white chapel, known as Grace Place changed from being a sanctuary to a recreational space for the youth group. There was a nine square court duct taped on the middle of the oor, a pool table, and many other active games. It also be came a place for unwanted items, clut ter, and storage. When the church held its 20th anniversary celebration, church elders sought to clean it up and downplay the damage, but it was heartbreaking to everyone who had experienced warm and vibrant worship in that space to see Grace Place reduced to a rec room. Grace Place became a metaphor for the life of the church. As the building showed signs of neglect and damage, the congrega tion also struggled with feelings of betrayal from the conference every time a new pas tor was appointed. In 2016, a group of military histori ans came to visit the chapel to identify its history. During their visit Russ Kamradt, a dedicated church member and retired U.S. Marine, decided to head up a renova tion project of the historic chapel. Initially his idea was to clean the carpet and put up some bead board on the walls to cover the damage. Like many construction proj ects, it grew to involve donations from many people in the community, including a new pulpit and communion table from Englewood Baptist Church. A stained glass window that had been donated to Flem ing Island Presbyterian and was no longer needed when that churched closed was re-donated to Grace Place. The old carpet was pulled up to reveal beautiful hardwood oors which were renished. The interior had new drywall installed and was com pletely repainted. Russ Kamradt headed up his three wise men a group of retired men who did most of the renovation them selves along with their wonder woman, a retired police ofcer in the congregation who worked together two days a week for over a year to renovate the building. As Grace Place transformed, the church also experienced renewal, with new mem bers joining the church and a revitalized mission team engaging in partnerships with local, regional, and international missions. The church established a sister church partnership with a church in Cuba, partnered with Mercy Support Services of Clay County and Family Promise of Jack sonville, and have supported local food pantries, the local shoe drive for needy children, and the Florida United Methodist Childrens Home. The number of children and youth involved has tripled. The church now has a vital small group ministry where people grow deeper together in their faith. Fleming Island UMC was among approxi mately 46 churches in the North East Dis trict that were not considered vital, but this year, the church has hit the 8 out of 10 metrics needed to be considered a vi tal congregation. The church recently held the rst wedding in Grace Place since the renovation and hopes to have many more weddings in this beautiful venue. Transformation is what the Christian life is all about. We were lost and then found. We were brought from death to life. Jesus of Nazareth spent his ministry healing the sick, feeding the hungry, com forting the grieving, and building strong relationships with his disciples. Even Jesus experienced church hurt from the religious leaders and betrayal from those in his inner circle. As he hung on the cross, he asked for forgiveness for those who hurt him. On Easter morning, we cel ebrated the risen Lord, the only one who can conquer death. In our joy, we rejoice that no matter how much pain we have ex perienced, no matter how dark our worst days are; Jesus can heal us and bring us into new life. We invite all who have been hurt by another person, or by lifes circumstanc es, to forgive and then to walk forward in faith, responding to the invitation of Jesus to come and follow.

Corporate sponsors provide National Clay Electric warns customers of phone scam KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Ofcials at Clay Electric Cooperative are warning customers to be on the lookout for a phone scam that involves a misleading offer from the power company. Several Clay Electric members in Clay County have reported receiving a yer in the mail that offers rebates for free attic insulation. The mailer states that a free inspection is required and comes with a business reply envelope. This offer is not from Clay Electric. Clay Electric also reminds its resi dential and commercial members that it does not make phone calls to collect on past due bills or offer unsolicited ser vices. A member in Keystone Heights re ceived a phone call that identied itself on the screen as originating from Clay Electric, but was not a number belonging to the co-op. Clay Electric encourages its mem bers to be suspicious of anyone who contacts them and claims he or she rep resents the co-op and wants to offer a service or be paid for an overdue bill. The cooperative does not offer services or collect past due amounts over the phone. Clay Electric informs its mem bers of services in ofcial publications and sends a reminder letter for past due bills. If you are at all suspicious of some one claiming theyre with the power company, hang up and call Clay Electric at 800-224-4917. We especially urge our members to ignore suspicious requests for personal information such as bank account num bers, credit card numbers, user names and passwords, or Social Security num bers, said Derick Thomas, director of the co-ops Member & Public Relations Department. Members should not share condential personal information over the phone. The accompanying photo is a recent example of an offer that was mailed to co-op members claiming to be from Clay Electric, but is actually part of a scam. SEE BRIEFS,15

Guests are asked to wear Red to honor those suffering with heart disease. This years ball was designed to raise proceeds that will fund the booking of the Soul Food Festivals headline act for 2018. The committee hopes to book an R&B artist for the anticipated 4,000-6,000 guests expected for the 2018. With a limited budget and volunteers often coming out of pocket, we hope to raise enough money to book a well-known artist or group. Last years fundraiser helped but still fell a little short of what our intended goal was. We are hoping to have a bigger and better turnout this year,Ž said Felecia Hampshire, Festival coordinator and former mayor of the city. Last year, national recording artist Tony Grant was the headliner and festival organizers are hoping to possibly have more than one national recording artist if the fundraiser goes as expected. Tony Grant will once again come and serenade the crowd at the fundraiser this year, along with comedian, Benny Hook nn, aka CatshŽ along with talented Christian Pop Artist Jody Finch aka Jody. Hampshire said the festival, which will celebrate its 17th year in 2018, is also looking for sponsors to help make the festival larger than ever. The Soul Food Festival is a well-respected, family, funlled event in Green Cove Springs that serves to broaden cultural awareness and welcomes and respects all races and religions. Events include a parade, where we invite every high school band in Clay County and surrounding counties to participate. We also have an annual softball tournament, sweet potato pie contest, barbecue rib contest, live entertainment, dance contests, motorcycle show and much more, Hampshire said.

When they leave here each one of them is doing the absolute best they can do.Ž In an effort to keep things fresh, Miller regularly attends workshops and classes to advance her skills so that she can impart that knowledge to her students. Her drive to teach others is profound and the respect her students have for her is obvious as she moves from student to student as they sculpt furiously during her classes. Once the intensive course is over, Miller hopes that each student is fully-equipped to do anything they want with clay. This is when the pressure is taken off and they are nally free to create with their newfound skills. Each year Millers students bowls are auctioned off as part of the Salvation Armys annual Empty Bowls Luncheon where tickets grant participants a student-made bowl and soup. Ticket proceeds go directly to fund Salvation Army programs for the needy in Clay County. Bowls from page 13 The bowls made by Millers students, however, are auctioned off alongside bowls from professional artists, each one going for at least $50. The pressure is tremendous in AP Ceramics, every eight days they have to complete a work,Ž Miller said. After the pressure is off they make a bowl. Empty Bowls is a dessert for them because they have the skills to create and no pressure and they make a beautiful bowl.Ž The students bowls are mixed in with the artists and you cant tell a difference between the students and the artists works,Ž Miller said. My goal is for them to go as high as possible. If my students make them very beautiful, the bids will go very high, and its all for the Salvation Army.Ž Miller mentioned that some students become attached to their bowls and dont want to give them up, so she allows them to purchase their own creating for a $50 donation to the Salvation Army. She also said that sometimes students parents will attend the event and bid on their childs bowl as well. This years Empty Bowls event will again be held at the Family Life Center at Orange Park United Methodist Church next Tuesday, April 24 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include soup, bread, water and a bowl made by Clay County students. In addition to the silent auction where Millers students bowls will be auctioned off, there will be a bake sale. Proceeds bene t the Salvation Army of Clay County and its food pantry located on County Road 220 between Fleming Island and Middleburg.

The Colonel re cruited young Hart as a partner and they began to build a fortune (Thompsons sec ond and Harts rst) in the logging business along Black Creek. They put together a huge operation. Their basic equipment included 20 mules and carts, sufcient hand tools for cutting, overhand hauling and rafting for replace ments when repair was required. Critical to the efcient operation was a portable forge to routinely maintain iron tools, har ness and wagon parts. Their smithy be came an additional money maker by taking in jobs for other timber operations. A full crew of 15 men was expected to harvest 6,000 board feet per day from standing live in the woods to oating a mile and half to three miles overland in a near by creek. That represents enough wood to frame three 1,800 square foot homes to day. Men with hand tools and mules did it all. Employers fed and housed workers in crude housing and paid from $1 to $1.50. The work was demanding but, unless rain turned the ground soft, the Thompson and Hart crews never missed their quotas. They felled pine trees then cut them into lengths ranging from 20-to-35 feet to produce a log averaging 300 board feet of lumber each. There was an art to the cut ting so that it fell in a way that the wheels of a cart could be straddled over the wider butt end and the log hauled up and chained to the underside of the cart, suspended be tween the eight-foot tall wheels. Then, depending on the condition of the ground, either four or six mules were hitched to the assembly and dragged the log a mile or so into a nearby creek. There they oated restrained by a temporary corral that kept them from meandering off down the creek until sufcient logs were accumulated for sale. Just before deposit in the water, every log was branded on each end with the owners initials. This arduous work was done in all kinds of weather under the most punishing con ditions. The only real help a man got was from the mules and it is kind to say that a mule is a temperamental beast. Worse yet, man and mule worked with the constant threat of the other residents of the woods and creeks. Mosquitoes and sand ies were as certain as the sunrise. Water moc casins patrolled the areas near the water and diamond back rattlers infested pine woods. Hart swore he saw an eighteen-foot alligator. Ambrose Hart remained in Clay County almost a year to the day then moved on to the Lake City area with the Thompson family to investigate opportunities there. Thankfully, he wrote frequent letters home vividly describing the land, people and their day to day lives. Over a century later, his words recall rural Clay County strug gling to recover from a vicious war with dignity, hard work and humor.

Look outside in your landscape and you will likely nd these tiny baby grasshoppers on many of your shrubs and plants, chewing away. So, what can be done to control the infamous lubber grasshopper? Learning about Lubbers Found throughout the Southeastern United States, the Eastern Lubber Grass hopper gets its name from its slow, clum sy movements but is mostly known for its large size, color ful appearance and damage it does to landscape plants. If you ever dissected a grasshopper in bi ology class, it was likely a lubber. The mature grasshopper is usually yel low, with black bands around the body but the young nymph we are seeing in the land scape now is black with some orange mark ings. These nymphs hatched from eggs that were laid last fall and over the spring and summer they will move through several life stages as they mature into adults, eventu ally laying another generation of eggs for next year. As they grow, the lubbers will eat many different species of plants, including vege tables and landscape plants. They will feed freely on peas, lettuce, beans and cabbage but are less likely damage to tomatoes, okra, peppers and sweet corn. Within the landscape, amaryllis, crinum lilies, and other members of that family are favor ites along with oleander, Mexican petunia and lantana. They also like Florida betony, stinging nettles, chamber bitter and even smooth crabgrass. Controlling the Pest The Eastern Lubber is notoriously hard to control, being resistant to most pesti cides except at a very early stage. If they are present in the landscape, mechanical control is often the most effective and be accomplished by crushing the insects or picking them off plants and placing them in a soapy water solution. As they age, they will even become tougher as their exoskel eton thickens. There are also several natural preda tors of this pest, but most are not fully understood. Some estimates show that SOURCE: UF/IFAS The infamous eastern lubber grasshopper. populations could be controlled by up to 60-90 percent by parasitic tachinid ies. Most lizards, birds and mammals learn to avoid eating the grasshoppers due to their poisonous secretions. However, the logger head shrike, a small bird, has been known to pick up the insects and impale them on thorns and barbed wire. n If you have any horticultural, agricul tural, 4-H, or family and consumer science questions, contact the University of Flori da/IFAS Clay County Extension Ofce on line at http://www.clay.ifas.u.edu or call by phone at (904) 284-6355.

April 19, 2018 CLAY TODAY 23 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM with the help of a late inning homer from senior Connor Solomon. As long as we keep winning, our season doesnt endŽ said Clay Head Coach Josh Persinger. Our speech after the Thursday win was less about great job today, and more about nish the job tomorrow.Ž Clay used the game two Friday night game at Clay High School to host the Mrs. McCool honor night to debut pink jerseys and rile up the huge home crowd. McCool was a sports fan of all Blue Devils athletics and lost a long battle with cancer recently. On Friday night, in front of a packed crowd behind both dugouts, Ridgeview threw every weapon they had in their arsenal to even to series, but again it was the Blue Devils that got ahead early in a big way, then defensively pin down the Panthers, never allowing them to catch their breath or build any sort of momentum as Clay again rolled the Panthers 6-1, owning the two-game series and rmly grasping the lead in district 4-6A. Anytime you play a good team like Rid-Devils from page 21 geview or Fleming, you have to strike rstŽ said Persinger, who lost a 3-2 decision to Fleming Island after giving up three runs in the rst inning. Ridgeviews last hope to derail Clay comes on the backs of the Ponte Vedra Sharks as Clay has one last division opponent to face. Ridgeview handedly disposed of the Sharks 11-0, and 5-0 the week prior. If Clay falls to the Sharks this week, it will come down to tie rules to see who takes the division title. Baseball is one of the best games in the world because just when you feel like you have it gured out, not that Im saying we do, but when you think things are going well, this game humbles you,Ž said Ridgeview coach John Sgromolo. Our pitching carried us all season and we just broke an 11-game winning streak. It was all because we were throwing strike one, and today we didnt do that. Today was a huge teachable moment. You have to handle your business and today we didnt do that. We didnt do what we were supposed to do.Ž In Thursday nights event, Ridgeview hurt themselves early when Kevin Jackson, the rst Blue Devil at bat, was hit by Panthers hurler Evan Wickeri, who then walked Nick Barrie putting Blue Devil runners on rst and second base. Tyler Spence stepped up next and crushed the ball into right eld for a two-run double to put the Devils up 2-0 quickly in the top of the rst. With Ridgeview unable to answer the runs, Clay was back at work with Zack Morris singling to left eld, Kevin Jackson singling off third baseman Austin Kittle, then Nick Barrie with an RBI single scoring Morris, 3-0. In the top of the fourth, Clay again turned up the wick with a Dylan Faulkner double, followed up with a Nick Barrie RBI single to put Clay up 4-0. Two was not enough at the time,Ž said Persinger. Staying in it one through seven is what we really did today.Ž Ridgeview did show a spark in the bottom of the sixth when Even Wickeri tripled to lead off the inning, followed by a Maury Gonzalez RBI single. Clay nished up with a Zack Morris RBI double to score Connor Solomon in the fth, capped off with a Connor Solomon solo home run, taking the rst pitch, to lead off the top of the seventh inning to seal the game. Friday the 13th, back at Clay again struck fast to a 3-0 lead through the second off Chase Holman reaching on an error and Andy Yarbrough whisking a single before Zach Morris slammed a second single to score Holman. Kevin Jackson kept the run going with a single to load the bases before Barrie belted a line drive to left eld to score the game 3-0. Sgromolo quickly pulled starting pitcher Marcus Roman for senior Brandon Dumas, but Spence landed an RBI single to score Jackson for a 4-0 lead. The offense has come on late. Coming in we were not concerned about hittingŽ said Persinger. The rst 10 games we were batting around .200 as a team. Weve hit a lot and we are peaking late. Some of these guys are hitting .500 and you dont really hear about them. Weve got it to work.Ž With Solomon on the mound, Ridgeview got a wild pitch with baserunners to score their lone run off a Dumas grounder. Solomon nished all seven innings allowing four hits, posting 11 strikeouts, and only a single walk. My team makes it easy on me knowing I have that defense behind me if I make a mistake,Ž said Solomon. Its a total team effort and my guys are always there for me.Ž By Randy Lefko Sports EditorFLEMING ISLAND … Despite some baserunning miscues, the Fleming Island baseball team continued its end-of-season run toward a better district seed with a comefrom-behind 3-2 win over Fletcher Saturday night in a rain makeup game with district rami cations. In district 2-8A, with Oakleaf (4-0-1) currently unbeaten in district play, but with a season-opening 1-1 tie with Fleming Island, three teams; Fletcher (3-1-0), Atlantic Coast (2-2-0) and Fleming Island (5-10-1, 2-2-1) all are battling for the two to four seed positions. You give us eight runs over the course of the season that we could use for our season record and we are a 13-2 team,Ž said Fleming Island head coach Marty Lanoux, who was sitting off the eld while recovering from recent heart surgery. We have a habit of getting guys to second base and not completing the mission.

Oakleaf coach Chris Lannom, sporting at 10-5-1 overall record and 4-0-1 in district 2-8A play, chose to not talk of his teams topsy-turvy season, but implored the dugout to keep focused on the game at hand. In a non-district game Thursday night at 7A-Middleburg, Oakleaf High catcher Colby Coldiron put his hat in that Mr. ClutchŽ hopper with a bases loaded crashdown of Middleburg baserunner Tripp Rawlins off a bases loaded, seventh inning Bronco scoring attempt that he followed with a run scoring double to center eld that became the games gamewinning hit in an eight inning 4-3 Oakleaf win. In that fateful seventh inning, with Middleburg getting a walk to Zach Kelley, a single off a scramble on a bunt to Doug Evans and a slippery bunt from Tripp Rawlins to load the bases, Oakleaf pitcher Noah Detrick hit Scott Kneer for a 3-2 score then walked Justin Mosley to tie the game at 3-3 to set up Collin Henderson for the potential gamewinner. With no outs and bases loaded, Henderson lashed a long y ball to right center eld that Oakleaf out elder Monte Stephens caught on the y and ri ed a throw to home plate as Rawlins tagged up from third. Coldiron snatched the missile coming to him and caught Rawlins chest high with the tag to put two outs on the scoreboard and Detrick to face Christian Powell for the nal out.

Middleburg opened the Ridgeview game with a heads up out at second base from shortstop Jaden Marsh on a steal before getting in the batters box and lling the bases on a double from Emily Bach to set up a scoring walk to Felicity Muncy. Up 1-0, the Broncos struck again in the second with a walk, singles for Marsh and Bach and bases loaded three times off walks from Ridgeview pitcher Milani Sablan before a run scoring single by Muncy put the Broncos up 4-0.

Against Fletcher (13-7), who had already beaten Fleming Island 2-0 on April 9, Fleming Island battle to three innings of scoreless baseball with senior pitcher Caleb Lanoux on the mound. In their rst at bats, Fleming Island got the bases loaded off three walks, but failed to capitalize with Justin Hawkins whif ng on a third strike pitch. We have to get the baserunners in,Ž said Lanoux. Lanoux controlled the Fletcher bats in the bottom of the rst with an opening strikeout on a wicked curve ball, a yout deep to center eld and a heads up play from right elder Adam Peck who took an errant throw from Lanoux to rst base and launched a pick off throw to second base to nail Fletcher baserunner Brock Sinaly for the out. In the fourth, with the score still locked at 0-0, Fletcher opened with two singles and a third hard shot to Fleming Island third baseman Zack Mercer who bobbled the snag, but was able to get a tag on Logan Roberts trying to get to third base. From there, the Fleming Island defense faltered with two throwing errors getting two Fletcher runs across home plate; one a pickoff attempt from catcher Sam Kondroik that sailed over third base. Fleming Island again got baserunners in place, but failed to complete the mission with two walks and a stolen base coming up empty. In the top of the fth, Lanoux got two youts, but gave up a walk that turned into a tag out at third from Mercer. In the bottom of the fth, Lanoux walked to set up baserunner Tyler Hudson for a run off a Peck chopper that Fletcher catcher Aidan Fernandez mishandled as Hudson snuck behind him for the run. Fletcher responded with a single down the third base line and a steal, but Lanoux got a strikeout and two grounders to end the threat. In the bottom of the sixth, Hudson blasted a long single into left center eld that fueled the Golden Eagle dugout. A bunt from Collier Summers moved Hudson to second before a balk pushed him to third base. Noah McCollum shot a long double to left eld to score both baserunners as Fleming Island took the lead 3-2, but still had to face the Fletcher lineup one more time. Fleming Island nishes with the St. Johns River Athletic Conference tournament April 16-20 with home games against Fernandina Beach (15-5 overall, April 24) and Bishop Kenny (13-5 overall, April 25) and the season nal at Episcopal (9-11 overall, April 27). Eagles from page 23 By Ray DiMonda CorrespondentGREEN COVE SPRINGS … With both teams garnering mentions in recent state ag football rankings, Clay High coach John Stilianou unleashed his defense on to the Orange Park Lady Raiders vaunted offense to the tune of a 27-0 thrashing on Friday to dispell any ideas that Clay may not be a third in the state level team. Orange Park is a good team; dont fool yourselfŽ said Stilianou. Sometimes I think you just have bad days and maybe that was the case because they are good. That score doesnt represent how good they are.Ž The Blue Devils, led by Lea Plantes cross country touchdown jaunts all season, had other plans as they needed a quarter of play to settle in and get the offense moving. The rst quarter went by as a game of cat and mouse as both teams were looking where one another would go in situations. In the rst quarter, we didnt do the little things,Ž said Stilianou. Just look at the dropped balls.Ž At the end of the rst, it was still 0-0 with neither team getting any momentum started. The second quarter began with a declared Raider punt from the end of the rst quarter, that Clay ran back for a few and set up their offense. The pair of Ciara Zino at Quarterback, and Brookelyn Gerush seemed to match up well as the Blue Devils went to that exchange several times. After earning a fresh set of downs, Zino found a wide open Abby Hawkins for a huge 16 yard gain. Then on second and goal, Zino went back to Gerush for touchdown number one with 8:50 left in the half. Zino did a heck of a job putting the ball up and letting her go up for it and get it,Ž said Stilianou. Sometimes its not plays, its players.Ž Back on offense, Orange Park quarterback Harlee Sharp tried getting her offense going with several pass ands run attempts, but the Clay smothering defense was too much for the Raiders and had to declare kick. Off the punt, Plante took the catch, pitched it to Zino and gained another 10 yards back. Now dealing with a short eld, the Devils scored on fourth down with Zino nding Hawkins again wide open in the end zone to make it 13-0. Plante ran a sweep left for a good point after and a 14-0 lead that Orange Park couldnt build off of before the half, only running three plays before time expired. The start of the second half, the Raider unleashed defender Larickya Cummings on speed rushes to get quarterback sacks. The defensive strategy seemed to work until Clay went right back to work seemingly at will with a Lea Plante jump catch for another Clay touchdown. Alexis Stilianou came up with the point after to make it 21-0 Clay. As the Raiders got the ball back, on second down, Stilianou jumped Orange Parks Nayeli Williams to intercept the ball. I tell the girls just sit and do your job, matchup when people come to your zone, and Alexis made a great break on the ball and sealed it by making that catch,Ž said Stilianou. Clay nished with a Kimber Grif n touchdown reception. The point after failed, leaving the score 27-0. With 3:20 left in the game, the Raiders would run three more plays before the Mercy rule kicked in at the 2:00 mark and the game was called by the of cials 27-0.

McDonald delivers a bobbly grounder right in front of Michaels that caused some confusion but, with Johnson on the run to second, forced a hurried throw from catcher Brooke Michaels to second base that sailed into center eld. Johnson got the green light from Lewis at third and sped to home plate for the winning run. We made great plays all night except the nal inning,Ž said a dejected Ridgeview coach Bryson Barker. We practice backing up our bases in practice all the time.Ž In the rst four at bats; rst and second innings, Crutcher and Ridgeview pitcher Brittany Michaels locked down the batting lineups with grounders and youts with Ridgeviews Raven Little getting a single in the second the only baserunner. McDonald got snuffed by Ridgeview second baseman Sarah Anderson who bobbled the ball on the glove exchange but kept her cool to nail the fast-running McDonald at rst base. In the top of the third, Crutcher got a strikeout to Cheyenne Vincent before giving up a singles to Brittany Michael, Alyssa Adams and Sarah Anderson in the games rst scoring threat. Brooke Michael lashed a hard line down the third base line that Clay third baseman Haley Stone nailed with a backhand stab before throwing out Brittany Michael at home plate in a crash with Clay catcher Kaitlyn Devils from page 25 Kumpf. I saw her coming and just told myself I was not going to let her get to the plate,Ž said Kumpf, who crushed an Orange Park scoring attempt on the last play of a 1-0 Clay win last week. I have to be the wall as they say.Ž With the scoring shot stopped, Clay immediately used the momentum to put three batters on base with three Ridgeview errors; a double to right eld by Delaney Annson, a bunt to Paolo Jorge Silva and a bunt to Ali Sarman that scored An nson. With two baserunners still in play, Michaels would get to youts and a grounder to end the inning. Ridgeview rst big hit of the night; Chloe Chambers with a monster bomb to center eld that ended at third base, set up the Panthers next scoring opportunity and a grounder to Ashlyn Halford put Chambers on the run to home plate where she avoided a Kumpf tag to tie the game. I thought she would crash into me because shes pretty big, but she went under me,Ž said Kumpf. It was close.Ž Both teams would get singles in the next at bats; Sydney Lewis for Clay, Brittany Michael for Ridgeview, but defense again negated the bats with Michael getting nabbed trying to steal second and Lewis left stranded on youts. We didnt get hits against Ponte Vedra and it looked the same tonight,Ž said Lewis. We have to get hits to get on base come districts.Ž In the sixth, Foster got a single off an error by Stone but was nailed at second on a steal off a ri e throw from Kumpf. In the bottom of the seventh, Clay nearly pushed baserunners for a win, but Jorge-Silva, on with a single, got nailed on a steal attempt at second by Foster to end the inning. Crutcher squashed the Ridgeview batting lineup in the eighth with a two out strikeout to Anderson who was caught looking on a third strike pitch. With district lineups settled, both teams continue to the regular season end with even bigger games on tap; Oakleaf (20-2 overall, April 16), Keystone Heights (15-7 overall, April 17) and 7A-Bartram Trail (15-3 overall, April 18) for Clay with Ridgeview at a resurgent Middleburg (recent wins over Bartram Trail and Nease, April 16), at 7A-Nease (9-6 overall, April 18) and Bradford (April 19).

In addition to the regular agenda, which may include, but is not limited to, business affairs, personnel matters, facilities items and academic and student affairs, the District Board of Trustees will also consider a decrease in the Distance Learning fee and the addition of a new laboratory fee related to a business course. Florida Statute 1009.23(16) grants authority to Florida College System institutional boards of trustees to assess a student who enrolls in a course listed in the distance learning catalog, a per-credit-hour distance learning course user fee. A distance learning course is one in which at least eighty percent (80%) of the direct instruction of the course is delivered using some form of technology when the student and instructor are separated by time or space, or both. Based upon the projected costs of technology and related services required to deliver distance learning courses to the students of St. Johns River State College, a proposed adjustment to the distance learning fee would result in a $2.00 per credit hour decrease. Upon approval of the Board of Trustees, the change in the distance learning fee effective for Fall 2018 would change from the current $15.00 per credit hour to $13.00 per credit hour. In addition to the change in the Distance Learning fees, a new $20 laboratory fee for the course MAN 4504-Operational Decision Making will also be presented for Board approval.
