2018 COMMUNITY HEALTH & WELLNESS Insert Landing for Lunch GREEN COVE SPRINGS Even Americas symbol of freedom needs to break for lunch, however, its not something we always get to capture with a camera. Corey Hardin, 25, of Orange Park, was fortunate enough to get a shot of this beauty last week while on the job in Green Cove Springs. I just set my iPhone up where they usually come to steal scraps from the buzzards that are out there. I continued working while my phone recorded. This is one of the two eagles that come around there, said Hardin, who works as the water/wastewater plant operator for the City of Green Cove Springs. It was somewhat expected for at least one of the eagles to likely show up, but not to get a good shot of them. By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS The Clay County School Board doubled down on efforts to place a school resource ofcer in every school during a special meeting here on April 23. After a workshop that lasted over two hours with the Board of County Commis sioners and Sheriff Darryl Daniels on April 18, the school board left a bit defeated, still unsure of how to fund 44 SROs. As a result, they held a special meeting the fol lowing Monday to further discuss funding options. We know what we want to do but now we have to gure out how were going to do it, said Carol Studdard, School Board chairman.

Buehn Correspondent GREEN COVE SPRINGS Framing it as their best offer, Clay County Commis sioners Tuesday approved some $2.1 mil lion to protect students by helping put School Resource Ofcers in every public school. The funding is in answer to fullling a recent state-mandate to provide armed ofcers or some sort of guardian in every public school to protect against deadly shootings like the recent situation that occurred in Parkland. The county commis sion and school board met in a workshop session April 18 to discuss how to fund the mandate without arriving at a consensus. Tuesdays action by the county commission was its answer to the situation. I feel like the school board wants to know our best offer and so to me this is our best offer, said Commissioner Diane Hutchings. Lets go ahead and put it out there and maybe that will give them what they need to move forward and lets get this solved. Agreeing it was the commissions best offer, Chairman Gavin Rollins said, This isnt easy.

But he added, the safety of the countys children was a pri ority. We have an ethical and moral respon sibility for the safety of our community and we all take that very seriously, Rollins said. The county commissioners offer came in the form of two separate votes and two separate sources of funding. Commissioners rst unanimously ap proved a one-time allocation of $1.8 mil lion from the countys capital improvement plan that would provide for vehicles and related equipment that the sheriffs de partment would need to provide for depu ties serving as resource ofcers to kick off the program. The second vote was for providing $300,000 from the countys ne and for feiture fund to the sheriffs department for operational purposes needed to provide for fulllment of the mandate. That vote was 4-1, with Commissioner Gayward Hendry dissenting, saying he would like to see more of a decision from the school board as to how it was going to respond to the mandate. All funding is contingent on the school boards action at its meeting next week on whether the sheriff will be hiring more of cers, said Stephanie Kopelousos, county manager. The $2.1 million brings the coun tys contribution to nearly 50 percent for the start-up costs estimated for the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce to provide for 44 school resource ofcers one in each of the countys public schools and two char ter schools. (The county currently funds 62 percent of the SROs already operat ing at the high schools in the county and Bannerman Learning Center.) Hutchings serves as board president of St. Johns Classical Academy charter school where her daughter, Clay County School Board member Ashley Gilhousen sends two of her children. The county already has $883,000 in its current budget for the school district. That leaves the school board with about $575,000 to come up with to fulll the sheriffs department estimate of $4.5 mil lion to start up the SRO program for this scal year, which for the sheriffs depart ment ends Sept. 30, said Commissioner Mike Cella. It was Cella who proposed adding the $300,000 to the pot for this years start-up costs. To start the program up, many new deputies, in addition to those already working as SROs, would have to be hired to place a resource ofcer in every school, said Sheriff Darryl Daniels. In actuality, he said, they should already have been hired to meet the states deadline of starting the mandate at the beginning of the 20182019 school year. The state did provide well over $1 mil lion in funding for the program but left the mandate unfunded from there, which leaves a huge gap for the estimated costs for the next scal year of about $5.6 mil lion. According to a press release issued right after the April 24 county commission meeting, the county will keep on with ef forts to nd a solution to the situation in the future. The BCC will continue to collaborate with the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce and the Clay County School District to nd a funding solution for implementing this state mandate long term, it was said in the release. At Tuesdays meeting, the idea that safety in the schools is a priority came from many sources. Daniels said people were on the same page when it came to the mission. The mission is to keep the children of Clay County, the teachers and administra tion in these schools safe. All the county commissioners are on that page, all the school board members are on that page and the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce is de nitely on that page. How we get there is what weve been debating for weeks, Dan iels said. Rollins said the school safety was very personal to all of the county commission ers. He himself is a special needs teacher in the county, Cella substitutes, Hayward has a masters degree in educational lead ership, Hutchings runs a school and has grandchildren in the schools, and Wayne Bolla once served on the school board. We all care deeply about student safe ty and its very personal for all of us, he said. He added in the countys press re lease, The BCC is taking a stand today and showing the safety of our children is vital. We agreed to delay the countys priorities of certain road improvement projects, fa cility improvements and staff benets to make it possible for the school district to meet this mandate immediately. Bolla said he absolutely agreed pro tecting our kids is something we need to do. But he added he would like to see more of a plan from the school board. The school board has got to step up and suggest that there be the one mill in crease if thats what its going to take, and then the citizens of Clay County will decide one way or the other whether there will be or not, he said. The board is expected to continue dis cussing the proposed one mill property tax increase at its May 3 meeting. The issue would be on the Aug. 28 primary election ballot. Fund from page 1 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer ORANGE PARK One of Clay Countys old est nonprots was honored this week for serving citizen with intellectual disabili ties. The Paul & Klare Reinhold Foundation awarded Challenge Enterprises of North Florida the top prize of $10,000 for out standing community service at its 25th Celebrate Clay breakfast on April 24. The event was held at the Thrasher-Horne Cen ter on College Drive. Challenge Enterprises Katie Vineyard said the funds will go towards the nonprof its mission of empowering those with dis abilities to rise above their challenges and become enterprising members of the com munity. This has been their mission since the beginning. Were proud to be able to do this for 45 years and be recognized by our peers, Vineyard said, who has been with the orga nization for 27 years. The big win came as a bit of a surprise for Vineyard, who felt honored to be in the same room as some of the other nonprots attending the breakfast. This is such a surprise, Vineyard said. Its humbling and its incredible, but its important to know that this [award] could have gone to anyone in this room every one here is so important for [Clay County]. We are honored to be recognized and we want to thank the foundation for provid ing these awards all of these years, Vine yard continued. While there was only one $10,000 award, there were several other nonprof its who took home awards for their role enriching Clay County. Chief among those were the Judges Choice Program Award winners Clay Action Coalition and Teen Court of Clay County. The Judges Choice Program Award winners are nonprots selected by a panel of ve judges, made up of three indepen dent volunteers from the community and two Reinhold family representatives, who take home $5,000 each. Donna Wethington of Clay Action Coali tion is already excited to get this money back to the nonprot so it can begin work on their upcoming programs. Im just so grateful and excited, Wethington said. This will go towards our drug-free calendar, implementing our hid den-in-plain sight vehicle and continuing our education of issues in the county that teenagers face today. Our entire goal is to make [teenag ers] lives safer. We want our community drug-free and our kids away from tobacco, Wethington said. Teen Court of Clay Countys Debo rah Mueller was surprised to receive the award as she didnt see it coming. Im honored, blessed and most of all, surprised, Mueller said. There are so many deserving organizations in this room and everyone here deserves this. Mueller isnt quite sure what Teen Court of Clay County, which holds counsel ing programs, mock trial camps and more for Clay youth, plans to do with the $5,000 but knows what the nonprot chooses to do, it will be for the good of the county. We do a lot of different things but to be honest, we werent planning on getting this so were going to need some reection Katie Vineyard, chief operating ocer for Challenge Enterprises, was all smiles April 24 after winning the top prize in this years Cel ebrate Clay awards. The nonprot was award ed $10,000 it will use to fund its programs for those who have intellectual disabilities. Charities honored for their work building community SEE CELEBRATE, 19

By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Despite a ges ture of cooperation and a desire to make it work, the Clay County School Board and Board of County Commissioners couldnt come to an agreement on how to place a school resource ofcer in every Clay Coun ty school. At an April 18 workshop in BCC cham bers, both boards met with Sheriff Darryl Daniels to discuss the logistics and how to fund an ofcer for every school. While all parties said they have wanted re source ofcers for a while, it wasnt until the Parkland shoot ing took place that putting the idea into action came about. And still, after over two hours of dis cussion, the idea is only a little closer to coming to fruition than it was before the workshop. The saddest part to this meeting today is when the state passed this law and man dated that these resource ofcers be in every school, it breaks my heart that they didnt put the money with it for this man date, said Carol Studdard, School Board chairman. Shortly after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the Florida Legislature passed a bill to fund more school resource ofcers and to arm school staff. A bill pro vided $67 million for arming staff as mar shals and another $97 million provided funding more school resource ofcers. This money also comes with a mandate as part of the bill declaring that by the start of the 2018-19 school year, every school must have an SRO or staff marshal on its campus. Oddly, there is no mention of a punishment for a district that fails to do this. Still, both the BCC, CCSO and school board are feeling the pressure. We dont know how we will pay for this but I guess we can say well pay for it, school board member Betsy Condon said. Were kind of in a quandary because we have to put them in for the 18-19 school year but the money isnt there. While the workshop was set up to al low an open forum of discussion between the school board and the BCC, Daniels ex plained the cost of placing an SRO in every school. The county is currently paying $883,023 and the school [district] pays $530,500 which makes the entire budget $1.4 million, Daniels said. The projected cost to staff up school resource ofcers in every school is $4.5 million. This $4.5 million comes from an es timated cost of $115,000 per school re source ofcer. That number includes of cer salary, benets, a fully-outtted uniform, proper equipment and a vehicle. With 44 Clay County schools, 44 SROs will be needed and, according to Daniels, ac companying those 44 SROs is six relief of cers, one detective and one trainer. The projected cost of $4.5 million drew audible surprise from almost every gov ernmental member on the dais. We have $1.5 million and thats it, Studdard said. We dont have anymore. The school board came to the work shop hoping to receive some nancial as sistance from the BCC but the BCC is just as strapped as the school board is, at least according to county commission er Diane Hutchings. We do not have this amount of money just laying around, Hutchings said. While the BCC doesnt have money to just give to the school board, they did offer up an interlocal agreement that would see the BCC essen tially loan money to the school board, with an agreement that the borrowed amount is paid back in a designated amount of time. However, it was unclear whether the agreement would include interest. Nobody on the school board really bit at this idea. Following the suggestion of an interlo cal agreement from BCC Chairman Gavin Rollins, Hutchings suggested the school board set up a designated funding stream. The [BCC] is not responsible for the school board function and this is clearly rf Diane Hutchings Darryl Daniels SEE FUNDS, 20 The saddest part to this meeting today is when the state passed this law and mandated that these resource ofcers be in every school, it breaks my heart that they didnt put the money with it for this mandate.

By Peter Schorsch FloridaPolitics.com F ormer U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy seems to be under the mistaken impression that because he was his partys standardbearer in the 2016 U.S. Senate race, that he is the partys leader. So, when the Democrat watched last weeks tele vised debate among the four announced gubernatorial can didates, Murphy, ac cording to a source very familiar with his thinking about what he may be plan ning, sized up the eld and said, Hey, I can do better than that. While theres no arguing with Mur phys concept that Andrew Gillum, Gwen Graham, Philip Levine and Chris King looked like, as the Tampa Bay Times Tim Nickens observed, they are not ready for prime time or with his conceit that he may be able to do better than that quartet, the possibility of a Patrick Murphy-David Jolly gubernatorial ticket isnt the dumbest idea Ive ever heard, but its not only implau sible, its practically insulting. After putting down Alan Grayson in the Democratic primary in 2016, Murphy ran a lackluster campaign against Marco Ru bio, losing worse than he should have. After redistricting shaded his congres sional district more blue than red, Jolly lost a quixotic bid to hang on to a seat that had become decidedly Democratic. Since those campaigns, Murphy and Jolly have fostered a friendship and have traveled across the U.S. on their tour Why gridlock rules Washington and how we can solve the crisis. The duo has become the toast of edito rial boards everywhere. Politicos who yearn for a third way in American politics would love to see a Murphy-Jolly ticket, just as they wanted to see a John Kerry-John McCain unity ticket in 2004. You know who is not clamoring for a Murphy-Jolly ticket? Florida voters, espe cially Democratic ones. And Murphy will quickly nd that out in the polling he has commissioned to gauge his statewide vi ability.

I yearn for the days when people actually did what they said and did not try to cover up their misdeeds through modern-day messaging, scapegoat ing and back tracking using prepared state ments aimed at saving face. The March 27 and the April 10 meetings of the Board of County Com missioners are a study of contrasts. But they are also a study in what happens when people get angry, pay attention and then take steps to hold elected ofcials account able. Society, in general, needs more of that in every level of government. Take for example, County Commis sioner Diane Hutchings. On March 27, Hutchings hardly said two sentences when the BCC discussed and then voted on moving the county-owned ambulance from the Town of Orange Parks Fire Department. Yet, looking as though reading from a prepared statement at the April 10 meeting, Hutchings backtracked and spoke up for the residents of the town that sits inside her BCC district a sharp contrast to the March 27 meet ing. Looking back, Im guessing every body now realizes how poorly the situ ation was handled. The new buzzword that for is optics, Im told. I cant help but think of what a dis grace it was in the March 27 meeting to not even ask Town Manager Sarah Campbell to speak at the BCC meeting. Its called common courtesy. Campbell and our reporter were the only two people sitting in the audience when county commissioners voted to move the ambulance. Poor form on BCC leadership. Plain and simple. No one attempted to make a motion that said, Whoa! Wait a minute. Lets take a step back and think about how this is going to play out. What harm would it cause to leave the ambulance there until the town gets its own certicate allowing it to run their own ambulance? Not. A. Peep. Was it bad or zero counsel from the county manager that led to this vote? Was it bad advice from the county at torney or county re chief? The truth is out there somewhere. Optics. But, the fact still remains that within 30 minutes of the nal gavel on March 27, the county took possession of its ambulance. Its great to see people take action. The April 10 BCC meeting was lled with town residents seeking answers. Now, two weeks later, in walks the new 800-pound gorilla funding School Resource Ofcers. In a week, this issue morphed from Hey, its not our job to fund them to Hey, were in this all together. The messages that rose to the top SEE GORILLA, 5

Brain folds Run from page 4 generically about, say, two centrist lead ers with experience in government, the numbers will be through the roof, but when you ballot-test Murphy-Jolly vs. the eld, reality will set in. What Murphy wants Democratic pri mary voters to do is pick him, a two-term congressman (hey, thats twice as long as Grahams time in D.C.) with a bent for moderation over a eld of tried-and-true progressives. Part of his plan is a com mitment to name as his running mate a former Republican lawmaker and lobbyist who agrees with very little in the Demo cratic platform other than Donald Trump is no bueno. If this werent Florida politics, Id say you were making this all up. Unfortunately, this is reality and heres where my words get serious. For one, Murphys plan to name Jolly as his running mate should be taken as an insult by true Democrats. Theyve been in the wilder ness for more than 20 years, and now, with their rst genuine shot of winning back the Governors Mansion, Murphy (a former Re publican himself) wants to enlist the help of his male buddy to get the job done. Nei ther of whom has worked day one in state government. Democrats should tell him thanks, but no thanks. They should tell Murphy hes more than welcome to join the Democratic primary, as candidate qualifying doesnt close for a month. But they should insist he commit to not naming any Republican be it Jolly or someone else to the ticket. I may be down on a Murphy-Jolly tick et, but I do have to give Murphy credit for something. Like John Morgan, hes helped expose the weaknesses of this Democratic eld that Gillum is too radical, that Gra ham is over-emotive on the stump and underwhelming on fundraising calls, that Levine is from that foreign land known as Miami-Dade, and that King begins his day reading the Saye Review. All four of these candidates continue to plead to party activists and the media that they are the real deal.

What you do speaks so loudly I cannot hear what you say. Oh, but wait. Six days later, in the April 24 BCC meeting, I got your back, kids. Bravo! The real 800-pound gorilla here is the Florida Legislature. They (and the Gover nor-turned-Senate-candidate Rick Scott) brag about record spending for public education, particularly school safety, yet did not allocate the full funding needed to get the job done. I challenge Clay County residents to pick up the phone and call their legislator and have an authentic conversation about this important issue. The time for half-measures has come and gone.

6 CLAY TODAY April 26, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rrffntbbntbt rfnftbbf By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Larry Lancast ers funeral was just as he wished more celebration and singing than sorrow and preaching. On April 19, more than 150 people gath ered in the pews of the Green Cove Springs United Methodist Church to remember the life of the former educator and Clay County Commissioner. While the sanctuary was lled with sadness, it was also lled with the smiles and laughter of stories passed from those who were a part of Lancasters 70-year Clay County journey. And while there was preaching, in which Rev. Rick Douylliez spread the message of Lancaster going home to the Father, there was twice as much singing. Lancaster wouldnt have had it any other way. What we have decided to do today, is honor Larrys wishes and have much more singing than preaching, Douylliez said. Lancasters friend, Clay County Tax Collector Jimmy Weeks and members of the Weeks family, performed more than four songs Lancaster would have wanted to hear, according to Douylliez. The songs spread a message that Lancaster spread throughout his life God is with you. Despite the grief those around Lancast er felt, Rev. David Jackson assured guests that he was with the Father. We come together in grief, acknowl edging our human loss and may God grant us peace and grace, but remember, in pain, we may nd comfort, sorrow, hope, death and resurrection, Jackson said. We will never forget the life of Larry Lancaster and all that he has done. Following Jackson, Douylliez shared some stories about Lancaster, who he had known since he was once a student at the school where Lancaster taught American History. When they rst met, Lancaster was the Dean of Boys at Clay High School and Douylliez was a student. Often during lunch, Lancaster would walk through the commons area and simply point at stu dents. I was scared of him when I rst saw him, Douylliez said. Larry always had that serious face, you know, and he would just point and motion somebody to him. It appeared to us that his job was to scout out any potential trouble, Douylliez said. The student of the day that Lancaster would motion to would be brought down the hallway and out of sight. Later, Douyl liez would discover a correlation between those Lancaster motioned to and those who caused trouble. He said he would of ten see the same kids Lancaster motioned to smoking behind the gym. I only took one class of Mr. Lancast ers during my time at [Clay High School] but he nurtured in me the most profound interest in politics, Douylliez said. His passion for democracy, and fair and hon est government would earn him the title of a true statesman. Not a politician, but a statesman. This interest in politics Douylliez gained from Lancaster came to a quick close when he lost the race for class president. Lan caster saw it coming from a mile away, Douylliez jokingly remarked. Son, with a last name like yours, youre never going to win, Douylliez remembered Lancaster telling him. The girl Douylliez lost to appointed him as the student council chaplain the rst day of her class presidency. To this very day, Im not so sure that Mr. Lancaster didnt have something to do with that appointment, Douylliez said through tears. Douylliez said Lancaster had a unique sensibility to public service. According to Douylliez, Lancaster was never concerned with the politics per se, but rather, doing the right thing for people. This was the driving force behind each and every one of Lancasters Those achievements include his time served as a teacher and vice principal at Orange Park High School, a short run as a Florida Highway Patrol Ofcer, and 12 years as a Clay County Commissioner. After that, Lancaster spent his days vol unteering for the Clay County Fair Asso ciation, the Clay County Cattlemens As sociation, 4-H, the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch and the Town of Orange Park Plan ning Committee. Douylliez nished his time in front of the mic by recalling something Lancasters daughter, Rebecca Lynn Minigh, said ear lier before calling the pallbearers to the front. Your daddy was a gift, Douylliez said. Your daddy was a gift to Clay County and to all of us. A life remembered STAFF PHOTO BY WESLEY LEBLANC Clay County Tax Collector Jimmy Weeks and members of his family sang songs of worship before Rev. David Jackson and Rev. Rick Douylliez shared scripture and stories during former commissioner Larry Lancasters funeral held April 19 at Green Cove Springs United Methodist Church.

Though the left-leaning constituency has found itself in the minority of voters in the area, an April 21 event at Heritage Park in the Melrose community aimed to bring together a group of like-minded indi viduals who, when working together, hope they can get the candidates they support elected. Hosted by the Democrats of the Lakes Area, and supported by Democratic organizations from Clay, Bradford, Alachua and Putnam Counties, a pirate-themed po litical rally brought out a couple dozen vot ers and the candidates they support in the upcoming general election in November. Trying to get people in the countryside to go to political rallies can be a challenge because if it isnt very fun, nobody wants to go, said event organizer Lee Malis. The whole idea is to get real people [to come], and to get the candidates here to talk to them in person. Malis formulated the idea for the pirate theme and making the event more than a typical political rally, complete with a pi rate costume contest and parade, dunk tank and live music. The parade led partic ipants around the circumference of Heri tage Park playing kazoo-laden renditions of traditional pirate songs and holding signs calling for an ousting of the pirates in the House and Senate. Candidates were given two minutes each to speak their piece, with some lead ing the group in chants taken from the events poster including Give Yoho the Heave Ho! in support of candidate Yvonne Hayes Hinson who is running against in cumbent U.S. Congressman Ted Yoho(R-3) of Gainesville.

Were hoping to do politics differ ent. Walking through the park, there were the typical runners handing out political yers for issues such as prison reform and anti-mining platforms. There was a dif ferent environment than the typical rally closer to the main stage where a 15-foot pirate stood next to the performing musi cians. Near the highway, Malis sat atop the dunk tanks teetering platform, his head shrouded in a gruesome rubber rendering of President Donald Trumps face. Kids wandered through the grounds with smiles on their faces instead of bored whines in the face of complicated politi cal commentary. This was, as the ier de scribed it, a fun rally instead of a mindnumbing political event. Malis said he would be working with the organizations involved in the Melrose event to plan future events in Palatka and somewhere in Alachua County as election season draws closer. Local politicians were on hand to shake hands and talk about the issues, but the theme in their conversation was less selfserving and more about supporting each other in their respective races. We want to feel like a united group of Democrats, said Cheryl Owen, who is running against incumbent Gavin Rollins for the Keystone Heights-centric County Commission seat 4. There are Democrats out here and were not afraid to show that we exist!

The Salvation Army of Clay Countys Womens Auxiliary hosted its 16th annual Empty Bowls event to raise money for the Salvation Army food pantry. Guests lled the Family Life Center at Orange Park United Methodist Church where they shared soups provided by Metro Diner and Chick-Fil-A. The local event is patterned after a 1990 art class project from a Michigan high school where students set out to raise money for a food drive. The stu dents made ceramic bowls in which they served a meal of soup and bread and in vited guests to keep the bowl to remind them of the worldwide hunger problem. Here in Clay County, local students work for months to make bowls that go up for sale at the annual event. Clay County School Superintendent Addison Davis addressed the April 24 event and reminded attendees of the food insecurity in Clay County. He said more than 6,000 students come to school with neither money for lunch nor a prepared lunch from home. The Salvation Army of Clay County serves 500 individuals per month on av erage through their food pantry, and have seen demand rise in recent months.

Students from all grade levels were giv en the opportunity to display their work in front of hundreds of members of the public during the annual Clay County Art Show at Orange Park Mall. The pieces that hung in both the JC Pen ney and Belk wings of the mall were creat ed over the course of the entire school year and chosen by the teachers for matting and display on their respective schools display boards. Weve taken the best of the best. If you put some of this work next to the work of professional artists you wouldnt be able to tell whos who, said Michael Green, Fleming Island High School art teacher. You cant beat this venue as far as the public seeing it. Green and other high school and ju nior high teachers selected works in mul tiple media everything from oil paint ings to more involved mixed media pieces and sculpture for display in the wing that contained work by older kids. On display you could see a one inch by one-inch re alistic painting of a pencil nearing its last sharpening, or large human body parts created from a roll of clear packing tape. Friday evening marked the opening re ception, with students gathering to take photos with their friends and their work, as well as their family members seeing what their student had been up to all year. It means a lot to the families, Green said. The students have never seen their artwork together [with the work of stu dents from other schools] before and they like to see what other people are doing.

Judges are selected by the teachers and the group is usually made up of local professional artists, art instruc tors from universities and colleges and people who own art shops and galleries. Judging this years printmaking category was Ryan Long, a friend of Greens who owns the Liquid Edge print shop. Im looking for the prints that stand out above the rest, specically in detail, ap plication and clarity of the printing, Long said. [Some of the prints] have so much depth and detail, you can see the time it took. Its cool to see kids making this level of prints at this age, they have so much po tential based on what theyre doing now. On the other side of the mall, the art is much less serious, but the projects are just as impressive and most are being complet ed by students who had little to no experi ence with creative expression before the start of the school year. Teachers select a handful of students to represent each of the projects completed throughout the year, with the best examples from all stu dents in kindergarten through sixth grade represented in the show. For students who dont feel very artis tic, it means so much to have this conr mation of their work and its very inspiring and motivating for them to know that their work represents a good example of this project, said Rhonda Wilson-Williams, art teacher at S. Bryan Jennings Elementary. Everyone is so excited to come tonight. Even my students who dont have work in the show have asked me Can I come to see my friends and just hang out? Wilson-Williams also noted the positive effect and importance of Superintendent Addison Davis push to put art back in ev ery elementary school in Clay County. You have to lay the foundation, she said. They cant do the harder stuff [in high school and junior high] if they havent had that exposure in earlier grades. She teaches students about the oppor tunities that artists have in the modern era, including careers such as graphic design and brand marketing for large cor porations, not just painting and drawing. She hopes to get kids interested in art and helping them understand that it could be a lucrative career and to erase the stigma that art is just an elective in high school that fullls an educational requirement.

Like the Green Cove Springs dock proj ect, which was also approved this year, the Chowenwaw improvements were con sidered a budget turkey in 2017. However, the state found the $400,000 during this years Department of Environmental Pro tection budget process and identied funds to improve the trail system at the countyowned park. According to a resolution adopted at the April 10 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, the park will use the mon ey for improvements to the parks Jungle Trail Dock, the boardwalk leading up to the kayak launch area, the kayak launch itself and the main parking lot. With the money being granted by DEP there are restric tions on the types of things it can be used for, but the improvements conceptualized by the county all t within the criteria of the grant. Commissioner Mike Cella noted that the money was marked with a deadline of Dec. 31 for improvements to be nished, which, according to county staff, will be more than reasonable. County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos said the county is already working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency on some of the areas of the park that were damaged by Hurricanes Matthew and Irma and the $400,000 will be used on some of the most necessary repairs. Were working on the actual dock structure and the boardwalk structure, Kopelousos said. So, were working with FEMA as well but well get this portion done and use the $400,000 by the Decem ber timeline. Commissioner Wayne Bolla also noted that the camp could use additional signage, citing a recent meeting about Clay County trails where attendees had discussed the lack of signs letting people know about the kayak launch and other facilities. We have a kayak launch there now but theres no sign telling anybody its there, Bolla said. As you drive by it, its pretty tough to tell that even Camp Chowenwaw is back there. Kopelousos said the issue with signage at the site has always been a right-of-way problem with the current sign at the foot of the parks driveway being the only thing al lowed, in the same way that hospitals and other parks are allowed small roadside signs. Thats one of the jewels of the county isnt there anything we can do to highlight that its there? Bolla said. Kopelousos said that her staff was al ready working on spreading the word about the improvements made to the camp to a wider audience and that they would look into signage as a part of that. What we want to look at is some addi tional advertising, marketing, maps, those type of things thatll bring some additional attention, Kopelousos said. But let us see if we can nd a creative way to do some thing different up front. Work from the state dollars will be com pleted once the states new budget year starts on July 1, and work will be complet ed throughout the remainder of the year.

There have always been date setters and there always will be. But Jesus said we do not know the day or the hour that He will return. Men have always predicted the exact date of His coming. They have always been proven wrong. There is an entire denomination that is founded on an erro neous prediction of the time of the Lords return. In recent times, we have seen highly publicized dates of the Lords return. False teachers have proclaimed in books, newspaper ads, and other media, the time that Jesus would return. They have all been wrong. And every prediction of a date and time that He will return will always be wrong. Because Jesus plainly said that no one knows the time of His coming again. (Mark 13:32) Anyone who tells you that he knows the time of Jesus return is speaking con trary to the word of the Lord, Himself. What our Master does want us to know in all the warnings He gives us about His return is that we should be ready for it, at all times. You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. (Luke 12:40) This is the real warning about His coming. We do not know a certain day or hour; we do know that we should be ready to see Him every day and hour. This is the message Jesus gave about His second coming: Be ready every mo ment because there will be no advance announcement of His return, other than the ones recorded in His written word! This is certain: He promised that He will come again. So, He will! Do you believe Jesus is coming again? If you do not, you will be caught unpre pared for the next great event in world history! www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org When will Jesus come again? By Kile Brewer Staff Writer FLEMING ISLAND Following the passing of the state budget, Sen. Rob Bradley(RFleming Island) made the trip to Middle burg early April 19 for the April meeting of the Clay SafetyNet Alliance. Bradley sat near the head of the table next to the podium and elected to speak at the end of the meeting. He was inter ested in hearing the testimony, needs and introductions of the growing membership of Andre Van Heerdens mutual assistance initiative that brings together represen tatives from nonprots, churches, busi nesses and other special interest groups throughout Clay County. When he took the podium, Bradley rst took a minute to address the group and explain why he felt it was so important to visit them before explaining some of the things that he brought to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott this year in his new role as the chairman of the Appropriations Commit tee. I think its important that we talk to Bradley gives community group legislative update our friends and neighbors and make sure they understand that, as they go about their daily lives, that there is this commu nity of people that are handling those who are struggling, Bradley said to the packed room. I just want to tell you that I under stand it, and I appreciate it, and thank you so much for all that you do. As he moved to the budget overview, he mentioned Floridas rise to the No. three spot among U.S. states in terms of popula tion, narrowly passing New York and sitting behind California and Texas, respectively. Despite the states rise in population, though, he said he and his fellow legisla tors balanced their budget at $88.7 billion while New York was allotted almost twice that much. Bradleys demeanor changed when he moved on to discuss the Feb. 14 shoot ing at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that turned the budget on its head. He at dinner with his wife in Tallahas see when he began, admittedly, check ing his phone was immediately hit with a ood of information and number of deaths, Bradley said he started sobbing. I knew that everything was going to be different from that point on in our state, he said, still noticeably shaken by the tragedy. The budget had to be rewritten toward the end of session, with $70 million be ing allocated for mental health for those who do not currently have access as well as $100 million to create safer buildings and structures throughout the state. All of this made up part of the total $300 mil lion spent on trying to change the way schools are run throughout the state in an attempt to thwart another incident like Parkland where lives were lost to gunre. We promise in our state constitution to provide an education for every single child, regardless of their background, that is a promise weve made to every single Floridian, every single child, he said. Not every child shows up at that school house with the same tools in the toolbox. I wish that wasnt true. Through increased funding, specical ly for mental health and recognizing those students who have more needs to be met, he said he hopes to meet that goal in edu cating every single Floridian. Bradley then moved on to the more lo cal things that were funded in the upcom ing budget year, including the funding for the First Coast Expressway that will of cially connect Interstate 10 to Interstate 95 through the heart of Clay County. He also discussed $25 million worth of budget items that will benet the lakes region surrounding Keystone Heights as well as conserving and improving the St. Johns River. The lakes are already starting to come back, Bradley said. This is going to have a signicant impact, not only on the quality and health of our aquifer, which the lakes feed, but its going to help with bringing those lakes back.

16 CLAY TODAY April 26, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM r f f nt f Resource from page 1 April 18 workshop with a mission to come up with a few viable options to meet a mandate made by the Florida Legislature earlier this year. This mandate declares that every school in Florida must be pro tected by an SRO, a staff marshal or some combination of the two. Not only does the school board want to put an SRO in every school, but their hand has been forced in doing so. During the special meeting, Da vis presented the school board with four options. Option one sees an SRO in every school with a decit in funding of $1,299,000. Option two puts an SRO in all secondary schools all Clay County high schools already have an SRO and Guardian Program participant in each elementary school. Option two would leave an ad ditional $481,000 leftover. Option three places an SRO in all secondary schools and armed security guards from armed vendors in all elementary schools. This option would create a decit of $166,000. Finally, option four involves an SRO in all secondary schools and the hiring of offduty law enforcement from surrounding areas to cover elementary schools. This option leaves a $459,800 decit in the school boards budget. These calculations include $1,641,000 from the state to fund Safe Schools, the new program requiring an SRO in every school. The option to utilize the Guard ian Program would receive an additional $370,000 in state funding. Quite quickly, the school board elimi nated options two and three citing a lack of interest in hiring outside security, as well as eliminated the Guardian Program as op tions. I have not heard from a single teach er that wishes to be a Guardian, school board member Betsy Condon said. Not to mention, the training is not something ev eryone will complete. In Polk County, 10 staff started the training and only three people nished it, Condon said. With the help of Daniels, Davis ex plained the nancials behind the remain ing two options. Option one requires 44 ofcers at a cost of $55,000 per ofcer, six relief ofcers at a cost of $55,000 each, one detective for $55,000, six sergeants at $75,000 apiece and one trainer who would cost $55,000. The total cost of option one is $3,310,000. Option four requires eight ofcers, one relief ofcer and one sergeant with the same costs per position. It would also re quire 33 off-duty law enforcement ofcers from surrounding agencies at a rough esti mate of $57,600 per ofcer at a total cost of $1,900,800. Davis recommended Option four but not for a lack of also wanting Option one. I dont know if this is the most sound option. I do think there are other counties that will follow this but I wanted to present you with another viable option that would see law enforcement ofcers at each of our schools every single day, Davis said. Be cause of nances, this is my most realis tic recommendation. Daniels, though, was not a fan of this option, although he understands that his agency is to follow whatever recommen dation is made. For Daniels, Option four could result in a lack of consistency in law enforcement coverage as a different ofcer would be at a different school each day. Daniels also said moving ofcers around prevents what he calls the bond ing between students at a school and their SRO. I kind of have a problem with [outside agencies] coming in who have no vested interest in the success of Clay County or the safety and security of our kids and teachers so I personally am against it, Daniels said. After some discussion, the school board agreed with what Daniels said concerning Option four and opted to throw that one out, leaving Option one as the only choice left. It was at this point in the discussion that a new take on Option one arose. Since the state mandate, the school board has wanted a resource ofcer in every school but the funding simply wasnt there. Con don suggested that the board contract 44 SROs and nothing more. Daniels then said the 44 SROs would also need supervisors, relief ofcers, a detective and a trainer. Condon explained to Daniels that it was not the school boards place to dene how the CCSO carries out it work and left the choice of having supervisors, relief of cers, a detective and a trainer up to the sheriff. Were not eliminating those positions, Condon said. Thats between the sheriff and his funding sources, which he gets his direction from the BCC. As a statutory re quirement, we want to put 44 resource of cers in our 44 schools and that is what we have to fund. Essentially, Condon, and the board who for the most part agreed with her, told Davis and Daniels that the school board will pay for 44 SROs for its 44 schools be cause of the state mandate. The school board reached a consen sus to have School Board Attorney David DAgata draft a contract for the 44 of cers from the CCSO in collaboration with the BCC. They also gave Davis direction to work collectively in determining the proper wording for additional millage, which the board plans to have on one of the upcoming fall ballots. This new millage, which will serve as a direct funding stream for maintaining SROs in every Clay County school, is a mill age the board believes the community will get behind and pass in the fall. I feel like our communities will get be hind us, Condon said. I feel like our par ents want safety in our schools and they will support us. STAFF PHOTOS BY WESLEY LEBLANC Sheri Darryl Daniels, left, met with School Superintendent Addison Davis, second from left, and the School Board on April 25 to discuss how to fund School Resource Ocers. At a meeting held in Green Cove Springs, ocials tried to hammer out a nancially sound option to fund 44 School Resource Ocers in the wake of new state legislation that requires SROs, yet came without full state funding for the mandate.

Ranging from Florida natives that lose their leaves in the winter, to the evergreen exotic varieties that seem to be present in every suburban landscape, they are every where for good reason as they are usually low maintenance but some special care should be considered to make them strong performers. Azalea Varieties Azaleas are a varied group of plants, with the most popular being the evergreen, non-native varieties. One item to note is that there are many cultivars available, with some performing better in our area and size should denitely be considered when making a selection. If a small shrub is needed, stay away from the midto large-size varieties as they will need heavy pruning which is never good for the plant. There are also considerations such as bloom timing, color and foliage color but the Azaleas at a Glance fact sheet found at http://edis.ifas.u.edu/mg019 is an excel lent resource. Underutilized in the landscape are the native azaleas. These are usually decidu ous and are larger woodlands shrubs but when they enter full bloom in the spring they are magnicent. The two major vari eties you will nd are Florida Flame and Pinxter. Azalea Culture When growing Azaleas, plant them in part or dappled shade for best blooming, with a preference to protect them from the afternoon sun. Deep shade will also reduce owering and growth. Soil conditions should also be consid ered as their shallow root system makes them susceptible to drought and they pre fer a sandy, well-drained soil. They do best in acidic soils (pH 4.5-6.0), so a soil pH test is recommended before planting. If pH is high, the addition of organic matter over a large area where they are to be planted can help. If in a high pH area, Iron becomes unavailable and leaves will become yellow with green veins and this is very common in our area. Azalea Care Azaleas in the right environment are fairly low maintenance but do require some care. First of all, irrigation is needed during plant establishment, usually two to three times a week, and then some water will be required during extended dry peri ods. If drought stressed, the lower leaves will wilt yellow and drop. Watering should focus on the root zone of the plants and should not be applied overhead to leaves and blooms. Fertilization is also a standard require ment of azaleas as nutrient deciencies appear. An acidifying fertilizer can be helpful in maintaining pH and providing nitrogen while foliar or soil applications of iron and other micronutrients can x other deciencies. Light prunings can help create a denser plant and should occur following owering. Do not prune after July 4th, as fall and next years owers are forming. Hedging of the plants will likely cause blooming to be severely depressed and will reduce the plants overall health. We will focus in the common diseases and insects of azaleas next week.

Jax man charged in DUI crash KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Bond is set at $100,006 for a Jacksonville man charged with driving under the inuence and caus ing serious bodily injury to a passenger in his car. The Clay County Sheriffs Ofce ar rested Kenneth Lamar Parker, 28, on April 18 after extraditing from the Duval Coun Police from page 18 Casey Rowland ty Pre-Trial Detention Center to the Clay County Jail. According to the arrest warrant, Park er crashed his black BMW into a black Honda Accord on County Road 215 north of Keystone Heights near the in tersection of State Road 21 at midnight on November 29, 2015. The Florida Highway Patrol in vestigation found that a passenger in Parkers car suffered a fractured neck in the crash as Parker was traveling at 130 miles per hour. Accord ing to the warrant, there was blood on the front passenger side airbag, front passen ger side of the vehicle and center console. At the scene, Parker was believed to have been intoxicated as ofcers said he had bloodshot and reddened eyes, slurred speech, a ushed face and a strong odor of alcohol emitted from his car. He also refused a blood-alcohol test at the scene, which led police to obtain a warrant to test his blood-alcohol content. The test re vealed his blood-alcohol content at .218, almost four times over the legal limit. During the investigation, the driver of the Honda told FHP that he was making a left turn onto to SR 21 from CR 215 when the crash happened. Parker also faces one count of DUI with property damage.

For almost 20 years he pastored Orange Park Assembly of God and, for many years, he was the Pastor of Christian Faith Center in Middleburg. Come hear him!! Old friends should re-unite with Pastor Shaw. rfntb rnrr r assembly a Funds from page 3 a school board function, said Hutch ings, who also serves as board president of St. Johns Classical Academy, a char ter school that is paid for by Clay County tax dollars. Weve been participating up until this point but I would rather partic ipate by asking you all to get a dedicated funding source through ad valorem and well encourage and support that. Then, you know the money is there, theres no more pointing at who is go ing to pay for it this year because its taken care of and I cannot imag ine the people of Clay County not supporting that, Hutchings said. While most of the school board agreed that a dedicated fund ing stream was a great objective for the board to achieve, School Board member Janice Kerekes still found her self disappointed with the BCC. It sounds to me like were saying we are going to work together but your sug gestion is a loan, and your suggestion is an ad valorem tax, and were not re ally working together. Working together would mean the school district searches for whatever additional funds they nd and the county commission comes up with funds that they can nd and the sheriff maybe nds a couple of posi tions that you could maybe eliminate, and thats working together and thats a compromise, Kerekes said. Its shame ful that were not all willing to work to gether. Rollins, who also teaches So cial Studies at Oakleaf High School, inter rupted Kerekes by asking County Attorney Courtney Grimm to come up to the podium where he then asked her whose responsibility it was to pay for SROs. Grimm explained that the law indicates the responsibility is solely that of the school boards. Because this meeting was simply a workshop, neither the BCC or the school board could take ofcial action, despite clear indications from all bodies that ac tion must be made soon if they are to meet the Legislative mandate to have SROs in every school at the start of the new school year.

She will be a great addition to ant home!!! By Ray DiMonda Correspondent PONTE VEDRA On the road to close out the two-game series against district 4-6A opponent Ponte Vedra High, the Clay Blue Devils already locked up the number one seed heading into the playoffs with a 4-1 home win over the Sharks the previous night, so what was left? We locked it up last night so this was, I wont say a trap game, but it gave them that edge. You have to tell your guys heyits all about that one seed, its about going undefeated said Clay coach Josh Persing er, after Thursdays win. Its real easy to lose focus. Were rolling and doing things right, so I didnt want to do anything to take away from that. Despite a Sharks three run rally in the top of the sixth, the Blue Devil bats were hot as the team racked up eight runs to let the Sharks 8-4, setting the team up to complete the last week of regular season play knowing they go into the post season undefeated. After a game-opening single by Kevin Jackson got things started off right, Clay moved quickly to 3-1 lead with a handful of ineld hits that, combined with errant pitching by the Sharks, put Blue Devils baserunners in position. Doubles by Nick Barrie and Josh Lemen highlighted the scoring barrage with Chase Holman getting an RBI single. Barrie doubled again in the fourth for another Clay run with Holmans basespeed on a grounder causing a throwing error and another run as Clay zoomed to a 7-1 lead. I told our guys; dont give them any light, dont let up, said Persinger. You come out here and lose, or let them come back in it, then you let them know that they can beat you. Dont ever let anyone know that they can beat you. Persinger was well aware of the recent playoff history between Clay and Ponte Ve dra with both making deep state runs in the past ve years through each others paths. Clay went to the region nals last year despite Ponte Vedra being the district 4-6A champion. In 2016, Ridgeview beat Clay for the district title. In 2014, Clay, the district 4-5A champion over Ponte Vedra, beat Ponte Vedra in 5A region seminals en route to a 5A title game loss to Tampa Jesuit. In 2013, Ponte Vedra was the 5A champion while Clay, in district 5-5A, lost to Creekside in the district title game and the region seminals. There is an opportunity, that if we take care of business against the winner on Menendez and Orange Park, and they end By Ray DiMonda Correspondent KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Keystone Heights baseball coach Alan Mattox cited pitch er Connor OSteen as stellar for his ve strikeout performance in Friday nights 12-1 pounding of P.K. Yonge in a key district 5-5A match at Keystone Heights High School, but Mattox could very easily have praised his lively batting lineup for the crushing ve-inning win. It starts on the mound. Connor was fantastic. He had all three pitches work ing and then obviously we have to play good defense said Mattox. We did that tonight and everything else just kind of fell in place tonight. Offensively, the Indians cleared the house and put up 12 runs to crash the Blue Wave early with a stellar 12-1 home win in front of a packed Friday night home crowd. Keystone Heights, the defending dis trict 5-5A champions over the same P.K. Yonge team that was shellshocked Friday night, sits in the middle of a won/loss trafc jam of teams led by Santa Fe, 1111 overall but 8-4 in district play with the Indians, P.K.Yonge, Newberry and Fort White all with 6-6 district slates, ght ing for the number two slot. The Indians nish regular season play with Ridgeview (April 24), Clay (April 25) and Buchholz (April 26). Everybody in our district beat up on each other, said Mattox. Santa Fe kind of separated themselves a little later in the deal here, so, the seating is just going to determine who youre going to play. If we go out and throw strikes, play good defense, and have quality at bats, we got a chance. In the second inning, down 1-0, the Blue Wave knew they were in trouble as they nally got a runner on with a single, only to have the rst of two double plays thrown to kill any momentum they start ed to build. In the bottom of the second, the In dians Trey Alsabrook hooked up a center eld line drive single, followed up by a Kaison Harvey walk for runners at rst and second. Will Yeldell moved his run ners with a sacrice to set the scoring stage. Enter Cole Mattox who listened to the call for low shots and placed the ball perfectly with a right eld two-RBI grounder, scoring Alsabrook and Harvey, 3-0 Keystone Heights. Keystone Heights would increase their lead to 4-1 on an Alex Kanos single and a two-RBI single from Osteen that pushed the Indians lead to 6-1. With two outs, Tyler Noble scored off two wild pitchers to push the lead to 7-1. A third wild pitch scored Nate Gagnon to leave the inning at 8-1. Three singles in the fth; Yeldell, Cole Mattox and Kanos scored the game 9-1 with an error on an OSteen grounder adding one more, 10-1.

April 26, 2018 CLAY TODAY 23 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Oakleafs season-ending 7-1 trouncing of 5A-Baker County, regional nalists last year and 5A champions in 2015, came with a game opening three run homer by Angela Agurkis that put the Knights in the drivers seat for the rest of the game. Baker County did get baserunners to second and third bases in the nal three innings, but the Oakleaf defense prevailed with Lambrecht coming up big with four putouts from shortstop. In the out eld, veteran left elder Destiny Pacetti stole a long y ball off the fence for a key out before Lambrecht stied a steal attempt at second base to end the inning. A second big hit from Agurkis, a run scoring double in the fourth was the Knights nal scoring salvo. With devastating wins over all district 2-8A foes; to the tune of a 70-12 runs scored versus runs allowed ratio, the Knights defense, led by third baseman Baylee Goddard and second baseman Rebecca Koskey as well as consistent play by shortstop Kaylee Lambrecht, has all but shut down the best bats around. We have experienced some hiccups defensively, but we have done our best to rectify those missteps,Ž said Thompson. The key to our success is to limit those occurrences, and avoid giving away a big inning.Ž On the mound, pitchers Madi Davis, Cambria Arturo and Amelia Stalter hold a 1.114 earned runs average with Davis winning six games and Arturo winning three. The trio has given up just 26 earned runs in a 26 game schedule with 83 strikeouts. When you have a strong arsenal of a pitching staff, you are always able to have a fresh arm ready to go,Ž said Thompson.Knights from page 21 By Randy Lefko Sports EditorFLEMING ISLAND … Fleming Island High softball coach Jennifer Bucklew let second pitcher Sammy Dill warm up the St. Johns Country Day School batting lineup before unleashing top pitcher Morgan Kendrick en route to a 9-0 non-district win Thursday night at Fleming Island High School. Fleming Island opens the district tournament with a rst round game against First Coast before an anticipated showdown with 8A champion Oakleaf High in the semi nal rounds. Oakleaf defeated Fleming Island 8-1 on March 29, but the Golden Eagles have nished strong with wins over Atlantic Coast, Episcopal (11th in 4A) and Matanzas before a tough 5-3 loss to 5A-power Baker County (7th in 5A). Against St. Johns, seventh in 3A with just three losses (13-3), Dill opened the game and stayed on the mound for less than two innings. The Golden Eagles could not shake St. Johns pitcher Brianna Enter as both teams scored three outs in three batters into the bottom of the second inning with Dill striking out four batters and Enter getting one whiff and some heads up defensive plays including a double play after a single to Fleming Islands Madi Lanoux. St. Johns shortstop Maddie Wilkes made a quick stab of a liner by Maya Littles that caught Lanoux midway to second. Wilkes throw to rst base outed the errant baserunning. Fleming Island then unloaded on Enter in the bottom of the second with a single to Tiara Peters, en error, a double to Morgan Grimm for a run and a two-run single to Hallie Corliss to put three runs on the board. With Kendrick on the mound for Fleming Island, St. Johns got baserunners to second and third base off a single, a walk and a eld error, but Kendrick settled in for strikeouts to end the threat. Enter, in the fourth, crushed the Fleming Island batting lineup with three strikeouts, but the Golden Eagles erupted for six runs in the nal two innings for the win behind a Dill double and a barrage of singles from Peters, Littles, Lanoux and Anna Hull.

Hamiltons superior play enabled the Golden Eagles to stay within range of the Panthers, who outshot Fleming Island 3423. Like a Jedi with a light saber, Ham ilton waved his stick high, low and sideto-side to repel shot after shot. His most difcult save came late in the third quarter on a bounce shot from close range from Neases Hunter Kobin. Hamilton nearly did the splits as he dropped to get the head of his stick to the ground to thwart the fast break. That number 15 [Hamilton] was in credible, said Gurowski after the game. He stopped a lot of good shots. The Panthers dominated possession time thanks to the faceoff work of senior Ashton Wood and uncharacteristic turn overs by Fleming Island. Wood, committed to play for Mercer next year, won 17 of 19 ball drops against the Golden Eagles tan dem of Max Michaels and Declan Bertolini. The senior gave Nease the momentum by racing downeld with the opening faceoff and delivering a perfect pass to Zach Ott for a putaway and a 1-0 lead just seven seconds into the game. After that, the Golden Eagles began to concede faceoffs in order to prevent the fast breaks that often ensue when Wood is at the mideld circle. In high school lacrosse, he is as good as youve got, Fleming Island coach John Eagles end lacrosse season with playoff loss to Nease Hawley said of Wood. Other teams, even Ponte Vedra, concede faceoffs to him. Building on the momentum of Otts game-opening goal, Nease scored half of their total goals in the rst quarter to take a 5-1 lead. Kobin, who nished with a hat trick, scored two of those goals. But Flem ing Island fought back, and trailed only 6-3 at halftime after junior Daniel Horrell grabbed a rebound and used an underhand scoop to get the ball into the net before Panthers goalie Joey Pappaceno could re act. The teams traded goals in a tense sec ond half, with Fleming Island narrowing the decit to two goals on four occasions. Kobin converted a man-up opportunity for the Panthers one of three Nease goals scored with a one-man advantage to give Nease a 10-7 lead with 4:02 remaining. A steal by Fleming Island middie Cooper Cavins led to an unassisted goal by senior Cole Stark with 2:46 left, but with Wood winning the ensuing faceoff and a penalty landing Golden Eagles defender Addison deAbreu-Reese on the sideline for thirty seconds, Nease was able to run the nal two minutes off of the clock. The Panthers clamped down on Pat rick Schreiber and Eric Dobson, Fleming Islands two leading scorers. The Panthers devoted a man to tightly guarding Dobson at all times in an effort to deny him the ball. The strategy was especially effec tive in the rst half, when a wraparound goal by Schreiber was the only point either of the attack men could tally. But Hawley countered by moving Dobson from attack to midelder so that he could come in off of the sideline to receive passes before he was picked up by a defender. The sopho more scored both of his goals in the second half and assisted on a fourth quarter goal by Schreiber. Fleming Island did get offensive contri butions from players other than their two stars. Junior Matthew Welsh found the net twice to complement the goals by Horrell and Stark. One of the positives from the game was that we got scoring from other play ers, said Hawley. I was very pleased with the young guys stepping up. The Golden Eagles, who nish the season with a 10-3 record, will lose nine seniors off of the playoff roster, including the entire starting defense and Schreiber, who has led the Golden Eagles in scoring the last three years and nishes his high school career with 128 goals. But Dobson, who has 67 goals in just two seasons, and Hamilton will return to lead next years campaign. I am incredibly proud of these play ers, Hawley said of his team. To get to the playoffs in this district is a tremendous accomplishment. Our goal was to win two district games, and we did that.

I had us at six points in second before the 4 x 400 relay and I was getting tear ful about the performances tonight, said Fleming Island High second year coach Karen Moritz. The team rose up without Evan Fuller here and I am ecstatic. We got a lot of surprises and a lot of personal bests. Oakleaf High got standout performanc es from sprinter Tahja Peoples and jumper Loren Johnson to take third behind Flagler Palm Coast and Mandarin; 6.5 points away from second place while triple jumper Mel vin Briley continued his journey to defend ing his Class 4A title with a win in his spe cialty plus a bonus win in the long jump. For Fleming Island top performance for the night came from senior distance ace Andrew Miller, who with Fuller and fresh Track from page 21 man Kameron Wallizada, formed a trio of front runners that was capable of scoring big points in the distance events. Miller, a 3200 meter fourth place in 4A last year with Fuller 10th, led a three-man front pack of Clay County runners to a win in the 3200 in nine minutes, 53.11 seconds with Oakleaf Highs Dylan Nelson second at 9:58.94 and Wallizada third at 9:59.85. It was a little strange not having Evan next to me, said Miller, headed to Elon University next year with Fuller going to Flagler College in St. Augustine. Him and I have battled side by side for the past two years and he has inspired me to get to this level. I was happy to win, but sad to not have him with me. In the 1600, Miller continued his domi nant front running tactic with a ve sec ond win in 4:30.84 with Nelson sixth in 4:44.12. ?If they were going to let me lead, I was going to slow the pace then out kick them, said Miller, who has a 4:23 time this season. In the sprints, senior Anfernee Mc Caskill came back from a third in the 100 to blast the 200 eld with a 22.82 winning split. In the 110 high hurdles, junior Glenn Rodgers broke through a three-man battle at the nal hurdle to take the win in 14.92 over Sandalwoods Edwin Carter, second at 15.22. In the 400, Fleming Island senior Felipe Fernandez took second by just .02 seconds with a 49.97 come-from-behind effort. Briley has jumped nearly untouched in the 47-48 foot range all season to win ev ery meet he has competed in, but the 50plus mark is always on his mind. We competed at less meets this year so that we can hold a longer peak into the state meet, said Briley, after winning the triple jump by seven feet with his 475.75. I got a win in the long jump (214.75) and the training for both is helpful to both. For Johnson, who has become more consistent in the 35 foot-plus range in the triple jump, her wins in the both the long jump and triple jump were as dominant as Briley with a two foot win in the long jump with her 17-7 and a four foot win in the Oakleaf High senior Melvin Briley continued his assault on the triple jump with a district win. Briley is defending 4A champion.

Johnson took fth in 4A last year in the long jump at 1711.75 and 13th in triple jump. Shes getting her mind right to stay consistent and approaching the bigger meets with less nerousness, said Oak leaf jump coach John Carter. I think her relationship with teammate Melvin Briley helps in seeing how the training works if she focuses out how big the meets are. Peoples, a junior, took the title in the 100 meters in 12.70 with First Coasts La Queria Bryant, the 200 champion, a close second in 12.78 and Mandarins Latavia Powell, third in 12.93, as the trio all leaned at the nish line nearly simultaneously. Peoples, who won the high jump at 409, nished fourth in the 200 behind Bry ant and Fleming Islands pair of Charisma Brown and Jasmine Morris. Peoples also was part of the 4 x 100 relay team, with Hadassah Davis, Destiny Harris and India Watts that won that event in 50.15 over Flaglers 50.77. For Fleming Island, nishing in the top four for a region berth were long jumper Christian Cook, third at 20-4.25; high jumper Emma Shaw, fourth at 4-9; discus thrower Britany Payne, fourth at 85-8; triple jumper Darnell Deas, second at 408.75; high jumper Nick Ferendo, third at 5-11.5; 3200 meter runner Emma Mill son, fourth at 12:13.63; Fleming Islands 4 x 800 girls relay, fourth in 10:34.68; Fleming Islands 4 x 800 boys relay, third at 8:22.38; 800 meter runner Cameron May, third at 2:00.83; Fleming Islands 4 x 100 boys relay, fourth in 42.76; Fleming Islands 4 x 400 girls relay, third at 4:18.96 and Fleming Islands boys 4 x 400, fourth in 4:27.06.

The Blue Devils went to work on the opening drive, punted only once all night, and choked the Golden Eagles with a 33-0 blowout to end both teams regular sea sons. Clay Quarterback Ciara Zino had a eld day with her receivers as the Blue Devils threw at will and picked apart the Golden Eagle defense. On the opening drive, it was a steady diet of Brookelyn Gerush and Lea Plante. After three rst downs, Zino saw Plante open, launched and after 5:50 were up 6-0. The good point after brought it to 7-0 and nally a chance for the Golden Eagles to even the score. On offense, the Fleming Is land team was hamstrung due to a couple of key players being across town at the district track meet. After two small gains, Clays Ariana Bellemy went on a tear, broke through and stripped Fleming Quarterback Hope Roziers ag for a sack, resulting in the Golden Eagles rst punt. That script would play over four more times with Zino hitting Skye Paradise, Plante, and nally over to Abby Hawkins for score number two. The failed point af ter left it 13-0 at the end of the rst quar ter. The start of the second quarter began with Fleming back on offense which result ed in another three and out punt. The Blue Devils stuck with what worked and again passed to Paradise, then a pass to Gerush Flags from page 25 who pitched the ball to Lea Plante for a huge gain and rst and goal to go. Zino got the team to the three yard line with a good end run. After a couple failed attempts, Zino launched a ball that only Plante could climb the ladder for, haul the ball in and put their team up 19-0. In the end, I cant do it without my teammates said Coming into the Fleming Island game, Zino, a sophomore, had thrown 30 touch downs and no interceptions.

Naeyli Williams also had an interception. Fleming Island scored in the fourth quarter to end the game 33-6. By Randy Lefko Sports Editor OAKLEAF The Davis family of Oakleaf; Mike and Kim Davis, and children Jason and Mikayla, have quite the trophy room with Jason Davis winning a state wrestling championship last year for Fleming Island and Mikayla earning an NCAA Division I scholarship with softball at Bolles (state runnerups). Add Maximus Aurelis Davis, or Max, for short, to that list of medalists. He was named after the Gladiator movie character, said Davis. Max, a 90 pound, one year old Black Labrador that Mike Davis got in June as a pup, just earned the rst of what may be more titles as a retriever dog in backto-back hunt tests in Hilliard and in Twin City, Ga. I tell you what, I watched a lot of championship stuff between the two kids, but getting a title with Max today (Sun., April 22) was pretty stinking exciting, said Mike Davis. I was a follower and sup porter of my kids, but, with Max, I was the coach. I now know what coaches feel when their athletes win titles. Davis took Max, just a year old April 19, to two separate Hunt Retriever Club test ing sites to have him tested as a Started Hunting Retriever (SHR). There are three levels to start with; started, seasoned and nished, said Da vis. Each one progresses in testing the dogs for specic tasks as they relate to hunting. Its very intense, but Max, me and Jason go dove hunting quite a bit. For the title, Max had to earn ve points of perfect execution in four separate tests in two different sites for his 20 point total before being dubbed a Started Hunt ing Retriever title dog. The test is somewhat stringent; they have a duck-thrower that throws the duck overhead and a shooter that simulates the gunshot of a hunt, the dog has to sit until released, then the dog is released and he has to retrieve and return to within one foot of the handler, said Davis. Any de viation is a fail. There are no points, just a pass or fail. The testing consists of two releases on land; in opposite directions among a eld of brush, trees and swamp-like tundra then Maximus Aurelis Davis gets his rst title two releases; again in opposite directions, this time over water that the dog has to en ter, swim, retrieve and return in the gen eral area of the handler; with a one-step rule after the dog drops the duck. Max had his rst two tests on land in Hilliard and they were awless, said Davis. On the second duck throw, he re trieved and was returning and veered just a bit toward the shooter blind on the other eld. I was able to correct him with voice commands and my whistle and he quickly diverted and came to me. I was sweating a bit on that one. On Sunday, in Georgia, with 10 points toward his title, Max was into the water test with full aplumb.

EVERY ISSUE MAKES YOU FEEL GREAT TO BE INFORMED rf ntbt bt Creeksides Johna Washington, third at 2:01.32, who both battled to close down Bears gap. I was using my arms to keep my legs moving down that nal stretch, said Bear. I know someone would slingshot off the curve after I blocked the wind in the back stretch. I was stronger. Bear employed a two-lap strategy of patience with his nal push coming at about 300 yards to go for a three second win in 4:27.85 over Creeksides Matthew Ortiz, and Ponte Vedras Antonio Romero who nished second and third in 4:30.06 and 4:30.29, respectively. In the 3200, Bear won by two seconds with his 10:00.92 time beating Creeksides Ian Smith, second at 10:02.56. In the 400, with sophomore Alex Col lier, a 52.01 fourth place district nisher last year, already carding four sub-50 sec onds winning times throughout the season, the Raiders trio of Collier, Sean Dixon and Alex Meadows crushed the eld with their 1-2-3 nish. Collier, in at 49.88, led Dixon at 50.79 and Meadows, in at 51.05, as Bartram Trails Zach Nelson was at 52.26 for the fourth spot. We knew Alex was going to be a top contender and that Sean and Alex were ready to man up and get medals, said Or ange Park coach Doug Burrows. I hope they didnt all just peak tonight because we still have more races to win. The same trio, with Collier opening with a 46.3 split, combined with sopho more Kadin Elmore to take second in the 4 x 400 relay in 3:28.85 behind Bartram Trails 3:23.68. We know a sub-3:20 gets us to state and maybe a medal, said Bur rows. Thats the goal. Also in the district 4-3A meet, Middle burg got repeat performances from high Run from page 21 jumpers Bryce Quiett and Kaley Petrosky, plus a double from sprinter/jumper Mar cus Floyd. Quiett, who has been in the 6-7 range all season, topped the eld with a 6-7.5 leap with Petrosky beating Creekside rival Abby Thorne on misses with both clear ing 5-5. Thorpe, second to Petrosky in the high jump last year, would also win the long jump and take second in the 100 hurdles while Petrosky missed a top four in the 200 with a fth place nish just 0.28 seconds away from a region berth. Floyd, second in the 3A triple jump last year at 45-11.75 and the defending dis trict triple jump and 100 meters champion, won by about a half second in the 200, won the triple jump in 43-1.5 and took second in the 100 in 10.84. Floyd was second in the district 200 and eighth in the state 100 in 11.22 last year. Top four nishers for Orange Park, ad vancing to regions, included Destiny Bas den, second in shot put at 34-10.25 and second in discus at 110-11; Sean Dixon and Markes Sermonds, third and fourth in the long jump at 20-3.5 and 19-8.75 and David Araujo, third in shot put at 431.5. Top four nishers for Middleburg in cluded Alex Bareld, third in discus at 146-00; Dakota Peppard in the girls dis cus at 109-06; pole vaulter Matthew Oli ver, fourth at 12-9.5; In relays, Middleburgs 4 x 100 girls relay; Cheyna Kidson, Jamyah Harkins, Stephanie Morelus and Petrosky nished fourth in 51.02.

They have three-four big arms so theyre not a bad team. In the top of the sixth, Connor Solo mon hit a sacrice y to right eld to score Eric Predmore who was courtesy running for relief pitcher Tyler Spence. Ponte Vedra made things interesting in the bottom of the sixth as they got things going with one out to bring a few more runs around. Clay quickly adjusted and stopped the bleeding after three runs where the game score would eventually end, 8-4. Connor Solomon was hot on the mound for 5-1/3 innings with nine strike outs, three walks, 91 pitches with 60 strikes. The change-up was good, the curve ball was working pretty well tonight, the fastball obviously was there as I was get ting strikes with it, so it was real easy to set as my second pitch said Solomon on his efforts on the hill tonight. I wish I could have gone the whole game, but sometimes you just have to come out and let other pitchers do some work.

Sometimes, they get too amped and leave early and thats a fail. As long as they dont leave before the release, they are good. After his second perfect retrieve in the water test, judges apprised Davis that a tradition would ensue knowing that Max had achieved his rst Title; the Title Swim. After getting the rst title, the owner and the dog both have to jump in the lake and retrieve, said Davis. And the water was quite cold, but it was well worth it. Davis said further competitions will put Max to more stringent testing, but he is willing to train him up. I had a dog named Jake a few years ago when the kids were young that could take hand and voice commands from 100 yards away, but I was busy going to softball games and wrestling matches, said Davis.
