By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Tuesdays meet ing of the Green Cove Springs City Council was one where visitors needed to stay until the end. As council members wound down and moved on to council comments, Pam Lew is started a conversation about a recent workshop held between the Board of Coun ty Commissioners, School Board and the Sheriffs Ofce regarding funding School Resource Ofcers for every school county wide as required by a new state law. Lewis explained that she had called members of the school board requesting that part of the money for SROs be given to the city so it can fund city police ofcers at Charles E. Bennett Elementary and Green Cove Springs Junior High. I told them how wonderful our police department is with community policing and about the hard work theyve done with children and their families, Lewis said. It makes sense to have our own police department provide the resource ofcers. Once the council comments moved to Mitch Timberlake, the mayor asked Police Chief Derek Asdot to speak to the depart ments involvement in the schools. When incidents happen in the schools were the ones responding, were the ones dealing with the families, weve already built those relationships, Asdot said. Id hate to hand those over to somebody else and then wed kind of lose that. We worked hard to build it and we do a really good job at doing that.

Buehn Correspondent GREEN COVE SPRINGS Wrapping up months of work, the Clay County Charter Review Commission decided at its April 24 meeting not to put the question to voters of whether the county managers position should be an elected post rather than the appointed post it currently is. It also set the dates for the three public hearings it is required to have to let citi zens speak to the two issues it is recom mending be put on the November general ballot for a vote, and approved the lan guage that would be used for those issues on the ballot. The Charter Review Commission is appointed every four years to look at the countys charter and determine if there are issues that need to be revised or amended. Any items the CRC suggests might need to be revised or amended must ultimately be put on the general ballot for a vote of the citizens of Clay County. The CRC has no power to actually change any part of the charter, but can only recommend items to be put before the voters for their approval or disapproval. Clay County is one of 20 charter coun ties in the state, which means it is gov erned under what is called home rule. The other 47 counties are known as con stitutional counties and are ruled by state statute. Meeting since last October, the current CRC has approved two issues it will rec ommend to be put on the November bal lot. One of the issues involves changing the term limits for county commissioners from the current two consecutive fourCharter Review Commission sets public hearing dates SEE SCHOOL, 29 SEE REVIEW, 15

At trial, Pvt. John Upchurch would claim he was homesick and just wanted to steal a car and go home to New Jersey. What happened turned out to be very dif ferent. Walking and hitchhiking, he ended up mostly sleeping in Orange Park and plotted to acquire a car at the popular lovers lane, a dirt road that meandered through the woods to the St. Johns River in the area of todays East Holly Point. Young locals, up to no good, joked about going to watch the submarine races. Sure enough, he found Nathan Ledbet ter and his lady friend Clara Jones, both from Jacksonville. Ledbetter was a popu lar former star dirt track race car driver turned successful business man and mar ried to a lady not named Clara Jones. Upchurch loomed up in the glare of the headlights and demanded their money and the car, Ledbetter pulled a pistol and the panicked soldier opened re. He emptied the clip eight rounds of 30-caliber bul lets, as fast as he could pull the trigger. The M1 Garand was a killing machine at 500 yards and served the U.S. military in Within hours of its discovery, the blood-soaked car where two victims died was towed from the secluded woods of what is now known as East Holly Point in Orange Park to the lawn at the Clay County Courthouse. Grisly double murder rocked Clay County SEE MURDER, 15 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer ORANGE PARK For Orange Park Town Council, there is no question about wheth er or not the towns police ofcers should act as Student Resource Ofcers for Or ange Park schools. During the nal moments of its May 1 council meeting, Town Manager Sarah Campbell mentioned that preliminary discussions with the Clay County School Board have been held regarding Orange Parks potential involvement. According to Campbell, the discussion centered around municipal ofcers acting as SROs in three schools within town limits Orange Park Elementary, Grove Park Elementary and Orange Park Junior High. Campbell said that regardless of how the council feels, the decision will be made at the school boards discretion. Its really at the school boards discre tion whether they would like to enter an agreement with the municipalities to pro vide this service, Campbell said. They have mentioned that there could be some cost sharing it would not be 100 percent cost sharing but a portion of this could po tentially be reimbursed. Before handing the discussion over to the council, Campbell broke down the worst-case scenario costs, which would mean 100 percent funding by the town, and how that would play out over six years. The rst year would be the most ex pensive with a grand total of $288,730. Broken down, $124,882 of that cost goes towards paying for personnel with another $36,348 going towards operating costs. In the rst year, there is also a $127,500 cost for capital. In year two, the grant total decreases to $149,395. There is no capital cost in year two or any of the fol lowing years. There is, however a slight increase in personnel costs each year and in year six, an increase in operating costs. Still though, the grand total for year six is $191,283 which is nearly $100,000 less than the year one total. When it was time for the council to come to a consensus, the ve council members found themselves in complete agreement with each other citing absolute necessity. I think its vital that we do everything we can to keep our ofcers in the school system, council member Connie Thomas said. For one, being a social worker my self and knowing that once a relationship is built with a kid, which certainly has been at this point, that we do everything we can to keep our ofcers there. They have a bet ter nger on whats going on with the kids. If the county comes in [and serves as our schools SROs], you add a second tier of a relationship that needs to be built be tween the county, the kids and the school and youre just setting up another problem there as far as trust issues go, Thomas continued. If at all, we need to look at the budget and gure out how to do this. Its in the best interest of the kids. Council member Alan Watt, too, agrees that municipal ofcers belong in the towns schools. What they offer or end up doing may not work out but I think we should surely investigate it because it would be much better for us to have our own ofcers in the schools, Watt said. Council member Ron Raymond, like the rest of the council, agreed and said that if the Orange Park Police Chief is okay with this, its a done deal. Mayor Scott Land Orange Park wants to offfer School Resource Ofcers In her career with the Town of Orange Park, Joyce Bryan serving as a secretary, cashier, town clerk, acting town manager and town manager.

Although the site at 1769 Treeland Ave. is not ready to begin a full-blown construc tion project yet, Executive Director Caro lyn Edwards said the nonprot is standing ready thanks to the efforts of April 28. We dont quite have a family picked out yet but we will and when we do, theyll help us build their new home here, right where this house currently stands, Ed wards said. Volunteers hailed from the U.S. Navy, Clay County Sheriffs Ofce, Board of County Commissioners, Clerk of Court and School Board. From the private sector came volunteers from VyStar Credit Union and Wells Fargo. According to Habitats Volunteer Di rector Kim Voigt, the Leaders Build event brings together board members and com munity leaders to work collaboratively on a project that serves a community family in need. This year, more than 60 people showed up to help atten this abandoned house. Before grabbing a sledgehammer and taking it to windows, doors, cabinets and more, Sheriff Darryl Daniels cited legacy as a driving force for work of organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. You often times wonder if what you really do matters and this is one of those things that you can reect back upon when you get older, that later generations can hear about, said Daniels, surrounded by CCSO ofcers there to volunteer as well. These are the things that matter in life and to be able to give back tangibly to the community, that really has value. Youre adding value to somebodys life and to the community and that doesnt get forgotten. Habitat and School Board member Janice Kerekes, while not joined by other school board members, said she was ex cited about the turnout. Thank you so much for joining us to day, Kerekes said, speaking as vice presi dent of Habitat. I know its early on a Sat urday but Im so happy about how many of you showed up for this cause today. We all know how important it is for our children to have a safe place to live. The kid or kids who will call this future house home will have a safe place to lay their head to rest. Theyre going to get a good nights rest, theyll do better because of it and grow into an important part of [Clay County].

By Eric Cravey L ook out, Clay County, here comes another PR stunt but this time, its not about prayer at the ag pole or Darwin. What it is, however, is plain and simple histrionics. At minimum, its a contrivance aimed only at making people upset. And, we all know what happens when people get upset there is a chemical mitted in the brain that shuts down the brains ability to think calmly and logi cally. Anger also prevents one from being able to sit down and listen to the facts. It appears a small group of stu dents or perhaps just one student at Fleming Island High opposed the April 20 event to remember the shoot ing victims at Marjory Stoneman Doug las High School. The students have twisted the entire remembrance affair into nger-pointing, name-calling and bad behavior. It began with a female student shooting a cellphone video, walking up to Principal Tom Pittman and asking him why he was preventing her from exercising her First Amendment rights that day. Pittman explained on the video how the event was not supposed to be political on one side or the other, vis--vis, the Gadsden Flag bearing the words Dont Tread on Me, which is knownas a symbol of the Tea Party. The student was complaining that Pittman and School Superintendent Addison Davis and sheriffs department ofcials were encroaching on students Constitutional rights when they seized the Dont Tread on Me ags from students. In reality, Pittman and Davis and the CCSO, were concerned about student safety. Students were witnessed running around poking each other with the ags and caused a disturbance at what was supposed to be a somber event to remember the fallen. Instead, students who did not want to take part in the remembrance are now playing the victim and saying their rights are being trampled. It sounds to me like someone has never been told no by Mom and Dad. Now, enters School Board Mem ber Ashley Gilhousen who is seeking publicity herself. After all, its her rst time up for re-election. Apparently, sources said, Gilhou sen wants to be known as Defender of the Constitution, so she has taken up the torch for the kids who basically crashed a party. Its way too easy to blow the Sec ond Amendment Dog Whistle around here. Just because ags were taken away from students out of safety con cerns, suddenly, their Constitutional rights are being taken away? As John Stossel used to say on ABCs 20/20 newsmagazine, Give me a break! By Joe Henderson FloridaPolitics.com T o the Florida Department of Elec tions, I am known by the acronym NPA no party afliation. That means I have not registered as a Democrat or Republican. This was a deliberate choice on my part, but it comes with consequences. NPAs will be treated as non-people in the August primaries. We cant cast a bal lot for candidates from either of the two major parties, even though the primary de termines who appears on the ballot in the general election. The other consequence, as a political operative once explained to me, is that I am targeted by both parties. My phone will ring constantly with sug gestions that I vote for this person or that one. And my mailbox will be over-stuffed with iers and pleas from all candidates on the nal ballot. Im the guy they want on their side. I can live with the second conse quence. The rst one, though, is becoming more of a problem for me and the esti mated 3.5 million Floridians who have de clined to formally choose sides. The Constitutional Revision Commis sion took a stab at addressing that issue with Provision 62, proposed by Commis sioner William Schino, a Republican from Tampa. It would have allowed voters in Novem ber to decide if the state wanted to adopt a so-called top two open primary where every candidate appears on one ballot and everybody gets to vote. The top two nish ers, regardless of party, then go to the gen eral election. A few states already do this, notably California. The plan passed the Ethics and Elec tions Committee 6-3, but it was skunked 7-0 in the General Provisions Committee, chaired by Republican Jacqui Thurlow-Lip pisch, a county commissioner from Martin County. Or, in the parlance of the commission, it was laid on the table.

What cows say Word is that hordes of folks are al ready planning to go to the school board meeting this Thursday and attack Davis and the board. However, they apparently wont be attacking Gilhousen. The reality is, however, the people who will go there to complain will be creating an extraor dinarily unnecessary distraction for the district. Lets step back and think about the last two weeks. The school board, the county commission and the sheriff have been meeting trying to hammer out a compro mise on School Resource Ofcer funding after the Florida Legislature created a mandate that every school have an SRO. If you recall, the state did not fully fund the mandate. Now is the time for unity and levelheaded thinking because the SRO issue is not truly settled. A lot of work lies ahead for the school board and superintendent. Lets focus on making our schools a safe place for children and leave the contrived PR stunts behind. After all, in the end, level heads win. Torches from page 4 choose. The result is that we see candidates in both parties run to the extreme left or right in the primary, then disavow much of what they said when the general election rolls around because they have to appeal to the whole state. Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, for instance, spent the ear ly days of his campaign trying to sound like Rambo on steroids talking tough about all the red-meat issues his partys base adores. I think he is a lot more moderate than he has been letting on, but general wisdom is that only the most dedicated voters in each party turn out for the primary in other words, the base. And with challengers Ron DeSantis and more-than-likely Richard Corcoran shoot ing routinely ames out of their mouths, Putnam is basically forced to prove he wont cave to those lilly-livered liberal elites if he is elected. Thats no way for anyone to govern. Fun fact: In 2010, when Rick Scott came from nowhere to win the governors mansion, only 22 percent of registered vot ers turned out in the primary compared to Solution from page 4 49 percent in the general election. In 2016, primary turnout was 22 per cent compared to 75 percent in the gen eral. An open system would help moderate some of the primary garbage we hear ev ery time an election rolls around. The same goes for Democrats. Gwen Graham is defending herself from those on the hard left who will settle for noth ing less than full support of everything on their agenda. The problem is, most people live some where in the middle. That brings us back to the NPA choice a lot of us make. Right now, there are two choices: stay the same, or swallow hard and pick a par ty. Neither one helps solve the problem. People say they are tired of all the neg ativity in politics. The CRC had a chance to make a small dent in that but laid it on the table instead.

So far, students have raised more than $4,500 to help provide clean, uncontaminated water. Students are partnering with the charitable arm of Swiss-based LifeStraw, who will deploy its Community water ltration systems there. From left, Natalia Pennock, teacher Tina Detrick, Jackson Hickey and Reagan Euwema are spearheading the fundraising, which began as a student project in Detricks AICE Global Perspectives class where students studied the United Nations Sustainability Goals. Clay County residents can help with this leg up project at www.gofundme.com/c5g5gclean-water-for-all. By Eric Cravey Managing Editor OAKLEAF What began as a research project grew into a community move ment as students, parents and families in the Oakleaf community raised more than $4,500 to provide safe clean drinking wa ter for remote villages in Kenya. Oakleaf High students Jackson Hickey, 15, Natalia Pennock, 17, and Reagan Eu wema, 16, didnt expect their class proj ect to create such a response among their fellow students at rst. Euwema said when the trio made their rst presentation to the school during the third lunch period, all they had to do is explain how many children die daily due to not having access to clean water. Many illnesses can come from dirty water cholera, etc. A child dies every 15 seconds from water-related illnesses, Euwema said. The trio began their research in Janu ary as part of teacher Tina Detricks AICE Global Perspectives social studies class. Detrick had students research the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 goals that are designed to rid the planet of poverty. Detrick assigned Euwema, Hickey and Pennock Goal No. 6 Clean Water and Sanitation. Originally, it was just going to be a smaller scale fundraiser; just try and so licit donations from individual classes, but after we realized how much we could raise if we got more classes in on it, we decided to make it a sort of competition between the fth period classes at Oak leaf, Hickey said. The student-centered project required the three students to write a presentation after they collected all their research and then present their ndings to the class us ing a lesson plan similar to what teachers use daily to teach students. But, they also had to nd a solution. Thats where they came across water ltration manufacturer LifeStraw, which is based in Lausanne, Switzerland, but has a charitable arm based in Washington, D.C. During our research, we found LifeStraw, and then we found how to make our own water lters out of turkey basters and activated carbon and coffee lters, Euwema said. Their class presentation also involved showing their classmates how to make their own makeshift water lters that can be used on hikes and outings.

May 3, 2018 CLAY TODAY 7 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM 8th AnnualCLASSIC CHEVY CAR SHOWThis Saturday May 5th, 9a-2pNew Location:ORANGE PARK MALL NEXT TO SEARS rfnrtbr bfbr rfntr r By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer ORANGE PARK An Orange Park High School Juniors hobby earned her a schol arship she can use at any college. For 31 years, Concert on the Green has been helping Clay County students turn their passion of music or art into some thing more. For some, that means having a place to perform their solo pieces and earn $1,000 in scholarship money while doing so. For others, it means giving them a pub lic place to professionally display their art and for LeAnn Hilliard, the nonprot does just that. Its just so awesome that my poster is here on display for anyone to see, said Hilliard, winner of the 2018 Concert on the Green Poster Contest. Just as its done since shortly after its founding, the organization held a poster concert to give local students a chance to design the poster the nonprot will use to advertise its annual Concert on the Green. Not only will the winning poster be dis played in the Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts gallery, which is where Hilliards poster is currently hanging, but it will also be used for all ofcial information pam phlets. Hilliards poster hangs alongside 44 other runners-up the 45 posters were the ones selected by the judges out of the 148 entries. Hilliards poster would be quite hard to miss too and not because of its position in the gallery. Featuring a colorful clarinet an instrument she used to play surround ed by contrasting explosions of color and a stream of musical notes from the Overture of 1812, which is played each and every year at the annual outdoor concert, Hill iards poster truly pops. My teacher told us it didnt have to be realistic and I just sort of ran with that, Hilliard said, while describing how her poster came to be. Beyond the design, I really tried to use complimentary colors everywhere because that always contrast so well. Because her poster won, Hilliard will be receiving a $500 scholarship that she can use towards majoring in art or any oth er discipline of her choice, which is great for Hilliard because despite her love of art, she intends to keep it as just a hobby. You dont want to do a hobby as a job because then youll start to dislike it be cause it becomes what you have to do, not what you want to do, Hilliard said. According to Hilliard, she didnt think she would win and thats due to the numer ous other posters her piece is surrounded by in the Thrasher-Horne gallery. There are so many other ones that could have won this, Hilliard said, point ing to a poster her friend designed. It means the world to me, though, that I did win. There are so many great pieces and Im really happy to have my piece in here with them. While one of the key pieces of the poster is how it displays the informa tion for the upcoming concert on May 27, there were a number of things the judges were looking for, according to Carron Wed lund, poster contest chairman for Concert on the Green. We were looking at the art techniques used, the materials, the poster effective ness and elements of design and I think [Hilliards] achieved success in all of that, Wedlund said. Wedlunds stretch of roots in the Clay County art community doesnt end with Concert on the Green. Shes been in the Art Guild of Orange Park for over 10 years. Im so honored to be [the chairman] of Concert on the Green, Wedlund said. Art is just so important to this area, and to any community really, and thats why things like [Concert on the Green] and the Art Guild of Orange Park exist. We are all working to keep art in Clay County. Clay County has come a long way, too, Wedlund said. For a while there, art seemed to lose its place in schools but now, more and more art teachers are be Student turns hobby into contest win ing added. Concert on the Green President Lauren Hoffman chimed in to further explain Clay Countys art evolution. She said art and mu sic promote the greatness within our com munity. With that comes more exposure. With more exposure comes more growth. With more growth comes more events like Concert on the Green, which raises money that is then put back into the community. That money helps promote more greatness in the artistic community of Clay County and the circle continues. As long as this circle continues, Clay Countys artistic and musical students are in good hands, Hoffman said. The scholarship Hilliard received was paid for by funds raised by donors, fund raisers and events over the past year and, according to Hoffman, its always been this way. I think the most important part of our organization, besides the students, is the people that keep us going, Hoffman said. We are a grassroots movement of people who want to support art and music in our community. None of our staff is paid. We are here for the kids. The gallery will host the posters at the Thrasher-Horne Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday thru Friday, until May 11, where the gallery will be closed on Friday. The gallery will continue displaying post ers until May 24. This years Concert on the Green will take place May 27 at St. Johns Country Day School.

He was 90 years old. He was predeceased by his wife Marion in 2010. He is survived by son John Jr. and daughter-in-law Lee of Massachusetts, son Paul and daughter-in-law Pei of California, and sister Betty Zorabedian Rawlinson of California. John was born on September 27, 1927 in Warwick, Rhode Island to Hagop and Agnes Zorabedian. Johns parents had both emigrated to the United States from Turkey in order to escape the genocide of Armenians in that country during the early years of the twentieth century. Hagop supported a large family by working at a number of jobs including farming, raising chickens, and operating a small variety store. The nancial struggles his father endured throughout his life greatly affected Johns own work ethic. After graduating from Gorton Senior High School in Warwick and serving in the U.S. Army at the end of WW II, John forewent college in order to avoid placing further burden on his parents and went to work at the Davisville Seabee Base and later at Quonset Point Naval Air Station in Rhode Island. He also worked a second job as a chef at The Great House restaurant in Warwick. In the early 1960s, the Navy sent John for training in computer programming. Throughout the s and early s he worked long hours in the computer eld at Quonset Point and also travelled frequently to work on data processing projects at other Naval Air Stations around the country. With the deactivation of Quonset Point NAS in 1974, John was transferred to NAS Jack sonville, and he and Marion built a house in Doctors Inlet, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. Throughout his career John rose steadily in civil service rating. By his retirement from the civil service in 1994, he had attained the grade of GM15 and the title of Senior Manager and Technical Director, with some 400 people reporting to him. John was an avid golfer. He held memberships at Eagle Harbor and Orange Park Country Club. For several years after retirement from civil service, he worked part time as the grounds and maintenance supervisor at OPCC until Marions health declined to the point where he devoted himself to her care. John loved dogs and over the years had several long-lived canine pets that he doted on. He loved gardening and later in life raised prize orchids. He was an accomplished carpenter and allaround handyman. He was widely known in Clay County and beyond through his work, golf, and gardening activities. The family received friends on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 in the Broadus-Raines Chapel and funeral services followed with Dr. Tim McDaniel ofciating.

By Kile Brewer Staff Writer OAKLEAF The blueberries are ready, but only for a short time. The nicky crop, available locally at the Blu By U blueberry farm in Northwest Clay County, will be ripe for the picking for less than a handful of weeks. The farms open ing day was April 28, and, because of the staggered ripening of the plants, will offer the fruit until the bushes are completely picked over and next years growing sea son starts. After suffering from bad weather last year, the farm in its third ofcial growing season hopes to shatter its yield record, going from 2,500 pounds in their rst year to an estimated 5,000 this year. It has to get cold in the winter to pro duce a good crop, if it doesnt get cold, you dont get any berries, said the farms owner Tom Morris. On the other hand, if it freezes you dont get any berries, but this year weve been lucky. Morris and his friend and farm man ager Matt Merrill got into the blueberry business after spending a couple decades in youth ministry. We went from raising teenagers to raising blueberries, Morris said, laughing. I dont know whats been easier, theres still drama and theyre still moody. The two set out to create something that was unique to the area, starting with blueberries and eventually growing into a destination for eld trips and youth re treats. We wanted to get a piece of property that we could do something with, Mor ris said. Somewhere we could enjoy na ture and pick and eat blueberries. We also wanted something that could be a retire ment option. They found the former site of Veterans Farm and decided to learn how to farm blueberries. After the rst years success, they de cided to try and add to the experience. Now the farm offers more than just blueberries with a built-out sandy beach area that sits next to the homemade plywood drive-in movie screen. As you take the meandering gravel road, which is lined with signs to direct patrons deep into the woods where the farm is located, you will eventually come to the penned-in area where the farms fauna are kept, complete with a dozen and a half chickens, ve ducks, a mini donkey and two fresh baby goats who moved to PHOTO BY KILE BREWER Blu By U blueberry farm owner Tom Morris, left, and farm manager Matt Merrill check on this years blueberry crop which had just begun to ripen about a week before their April 28 opening day. Blueberries are just a part of this sanctuary the farm a couple days prior to this years opening day. They even purchased 35 caterpillars that they saw through their metamorpho sis, creating the inaugural Blu By U but tery garden to accompany the bees kept at the farm that help pollinate the blueber ries. We want people to enjoy themselves out here, its not just about the blueber ries, Merrill said as he walked through the eld sampling this years crop. Weve already had a couple retreats [in the off season], and kids from local churches have come out to watch movies on the screen. Merrill said the best part is seeing the fruits of their labor, families walking the rows of blueberries smiling and enjoying what the two men have created. After the blueberries are picked and weighed, they offer snow cones and fresh squeezed lem onade made with Blu By U lemons. Blueberries sell for $4 a pound for the u-picks, and $7 if you buy the pre-picked berries sold next to the lemonade and local honey in the 1880-built farmhouse at the center of the property. They also have ado lescent plants for sale in case a customer wants to try growing their own bush full of the plump blue marbles that surely beat anything store-bought. The farm will continue to open up Tues days and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 to 6. During this years season, the farm expects at least 300 people every Saturday, and busy days might prevent some skipped hours as the berries ripen up. According to the website, the rst Saturday and Tuesdays went so well that they are forgoing their Thursday hours this week to save up berries for Sat urday, May 5. For more information, they recommend watching their website, www. blubyujax.com, and Facebook page for up dated hours. If you missed the rst round, however, there will be a second harvest in June when the late-season variety ripens.

The Garden Club of Fleming Island dedicated a Blue Star Memorial By-Way Marker as a tribute to the Armed Forces of America. The new By-Way Marker is on the grounds of the Fleming Island Public Library and is the culmination of years of work, according to Lynn Vernon, chair man of the Garden Clubs Blue Star Committee. Our desire was to create a visible and lasting memorial to a very special group of individuals, Vernon said. A visual reminder to us all to reect on how very grateful we are for those who served our nation in the past and thankful for those who serve it now. The Blue Star Memorial By-Way Memorial Marker program started in 1944 with a garden club in New Jersey, and was later adopted by National Garden Clubs Inc. The blue star on the me morial symbolized the blue star on the World War II service ag which hung in so many homes of service men and women as a tribute. While the program originally began to honor WWII veterans, it expanded its mission in 1951 to include all men and women who had served, were serving or would serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Other Clay County Blue Star Memorial By-Way Markers, include two on U.S. Highway 17 in Orange Park, one on Walker Road in Keystone Heights and another is 915 Walnut St. in Green Cove Springs. invasive lionsh.

According to Cella, this ordinance al lows the BCC to gure out ways to take homes like the one being demolished dur ing this years Leaders Build event homes that are vacant and abandoned and turn them into homes for people in need.

By Kile Brewer Staff Writer KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Answers, Clay Countys womens resource center, wants to make sure that every girl at Keystone Heights High School has the opportunity to attend their prom. For the fourth year in a row, the orga nization has offered its joint effort Prom Expo and Prom Salon that sees girls through dress selection, and then hair and makeup on the big day. Everything starts with Prom Expo at the high school, said Answers volunteer Lori Maxwell, who is a driving force behind the effort. The expo brings girls into the schools library over the course of a week during their lunch period to select from about 150 dresses that the organization receives from donors throughout the year. They are even able to offer things like shoes, jewelry and undergarments for those who need them. This year, they learned of girls at other area schools who needed help get ting the often-expensive prom items and invited them over to Keystone to share in the program. I remember what its like being a young girl and needing someone to talk to, Maxwell said. They always get excited for Prepping for prom STAFF PHOTOS BY KILE BREWER Keystone Heights High sophomore Elizabeth Hunt gets the nishing touches put on her makeup by Answers volunteer Madyson Maxwell before her schools prom. This was the fourth year that the Answers organization provided both a complementary dress shop, as well as free hair and makeup for Keystone girls before prom. An array of makeup items sit in the front lobby of the Answers womens organization in Keystone Heights during the free hair and makeup initiative hosted by the organization prior to the Keystone Heights High prom. Prom Expo. At the Expo, girls sign up for Prom Sa lon where they receive hair and makeup at no cost to go with their new dress. This year they even received owers from a lo cal ower shop to provide corsages for the girls. This is the rst year I havent had to be here, but I wanted to be here anyway because this day is always so much fun, said Answers CEO Joanna Weldon. Weldon said that their prom initiatives are done in coordination with the organi zations Beat Club director Tifny Sanders. Sanders meets with a group of girls for an afterschool program to carry the message of the Answers organization to the young women in Keystone Heights. Weldon said that due to the success of the high school program they are looking at ways to ex pand the program into the junior high level before the start of the 2018-19 school year, however, details of the program are still being worked out.

Paul wrote to the Corinthians, I tell you, now is the time of Gods favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Cor. 6:2) Jesus made it clear. No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. (John 6:44) Listen to His voice in your heart. Gods chosen time for you will be the time for your decision of destiny. This does not mean that there is only one time in a lifetime when you have opportunity to meet God. The sooner you heed His call, the sooner you will nd order in your life. If you reject Him and continue to reject Him when He calls, He will nally leave you alone. This is what J. A. Alexander wrote about in his great old hymn with such powerful meaning: There is a time, we know not when, A point we know not where, That marks the destiny of men To glory or despair. There is a line by us unseen, That crosses every path; The hidden boundary between Gods patience and his wrath. In one of the saddest verses in the Bible, Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, said, The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. (Jer. 8:20 KJV). There is a time to meet God. And that time must not be missed. Take the rst opportunity the Lord offers you to meet Him. If you accept the rst opportunity to meet Him, you will never have to worry about missing His last opportunity.

Vice Mayor Gary Meeks, who previ ously served as a police ofcer at one point in his career, explained how years ago when he started the Ofcer Friendly Program in Orange Park, he believed mu nicipal ofcers should be the ones protect ing the towns students and still today, he feels the same. I fought this battle a long time ago, Meek said. Im going to tell you, its not even an option [to say no]. After their discussion, the council passed a motion 5-0 to allow Campbell to proceed with discussions with Super intendent Addison Davis under the guid ance that the council does indeed wish to put municipal ofcers in Orange Park Elementary, Grove Park Elementary and Orange Park Junior High. In other business, council presented a proclamation recognizing former Town Clerk Joyce Bryan and all of her contribu tions to the town. One of the highlights of Bryans career was the creation of the Or ange Park Fall Festival, which has grown to be a regional event in its more than 30 years. Before the proclamation was read, Campbell expressed feelings of regret that were echoed by the council in that the town did not make a proclamation like this honoring Bryan when she retired and was now playing catch up. Regardless, Bryan said she was honored and even came pre pared with a speech. I hope that I was able to help the citi zens of this town have a better life and I hope that I helped to contribute to the im provements that were made here, Bryan read from her speech. This has been my home for a long time and I hope it remains so.

May 3, 2018 CLAY TODAY 15 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM three wars. Upchurch was at most three yards from his victims. Ears ringing and eyes barely focusing, Upchurch saw the carnage, lost his nerve and ran from the scene. He ended up in Jacksonville on Market Street at military police headquarters where he spun a tale of going AWOL and stumbling across the scene and the bodies. Little did he know that the sleepy little town of Orange Park and most of Clay County were wide awake the moment after the sound of that gun re was heard. With the car lights blazing in the woods, people found the bloody horror quickly, alerted Clay County and Jackson ville law. The MPs were a little surprised when he walked in the door though. MPs drove him to Orange Park and when confronted with the gory mess now brightly lit with car lights, he cracked and confessed. Upchurch remained in military cus tody until April 3 when he was indicted for rst-degree murder by a Clay County Grand Jury and became a guest of Sheriff John Hall in Green Cove Springs. The trial for the murder of Nathan Ledbetter com menced April 23. Two days later, the jury found him guilty and recommended mercy. Judge McNeil sentenced him to spend the rest of his natural life in jail, two days after that. On May 1, he was transferred to Florida State Prison at Raiford. It was 37 days between the commis sion of the murder and the commencement of the sentence. Judging by supplemental minutes to Clay County Commission Meet ings, it took far longer for the Army to re trieve their M1 Garand from Sheriff Halls evidence locker. Murder from page 2 Chef from page 11 didnt turn out as good as the others, Alevy said. Its been a while now since that happened and Im doing pretty good. Throughout it all, my family and my friends were there to support me. Now that his time is a bit freer, albeit just barely, Alevy is back to doing all the things he was enjoying before his time on the show cooking, soccer, vlogging, pod casting, videography, photography and act ing not to mention school as well. And speaking of acting, Alevy has a movie hes in coming out this year titled, Im Going to Kill Someone This Friday. The movie is currently in post-production but when it releases, Alevy can be spotted playing the son of the main family the story revolves around. Today, with quite a bit of time between when he lmed for the show and now, Alevy sees the things he learned on the show come to fruition every time he steps into the kitchen. According to Alevy, hes now a more poised cook. Cooking in front of the judges, in front of the cameras, completing the task before time ran out and ensuring ev ery plate he made looked appetizing taught him how to not only be more efcient in the kitchen, but better in it as well. However, he enjoys the more relaxed environment of his familys home kitchen and understand ably so. While he isnt allowed to disclose how long ago he lmed for MasterChef Junior according to FOX guidelines, enough time has passed to allow for Alevy to reect on his time spent lming on the West Coast. I would say the experience, everything about it, is the best thing thats ever hap pened in my life, Alevy said. Being on national television, surrounded by friends and some of the worlds greatest chefs, be ing in such a friendly but competitive envi ronment, was amazing. Ill never forget my time [on the show]. If youre interested in more on Alevy, you can listen to his upcoming podcast, Kickin it with Camson, which will soon be available on iTunes. If thats not enough, you can head to the Clay Today website, www.claytodayonline.com, and watch Alevy redeem himself with a perfectly cooked Tilly Burger and you might even learn how to cook the burger yourself along the way. year terms, to three consecutive fouryear terms. That proposal would also impose a lifetime term limit of three four-year terms for county commis sioners. As it currently stands, a county commissioner could serve two four-year terms, take a break, then run for ofce again, and serve another two terms, repeating that action over and over. The second issue basically involves raising county commissioner salaries incrementally to bring them more in line with most other county commis sioners in the state. Clay County commissioners sala ries are currently much lower than most other commissioners in the state. Approval of this item by voters would bring the Clay commissioners salaries (over four budget years) to about 70 percent of the salaries set by general law in non-charter counties. That would put their salaries at about $51,580 instead of the $37,580 they currently earn. Those two items will be put before voters at the three public hearings the CRC is required to have. Those meet ings will be May 9, May 24 and June 13. One item that wont be put before voters is whether the county manager position should be an elected or ap pointed post. That item was brought up for discussion by CRC member Ronald Stotler. Stotler said, while he wasnt saying anything against any individu als, that he believed the position has grown over the years to one that is very powerful and includes the duties of comptroller and clerk of the records. As its evolved over a period of time, this has become probably the most single powerful position in Clay County, Stotler said, adding later, Im a big believer in checks and balances and Im a big believer in the public picking who is in control. Support for the idea was hard to nd among other members of the CRC and the citizens who appeared at the meeting to speak to the subject. In stead, the consensus was in support of an appointed county manager and in particular of Stephanie Kopelousos, who is the current county manager. Review from page 1 Many cited the idea that if the position were elected, it would become a political position, rather than an executive position a change they did not like. Saying he would not be in favor of mak ing such a change, CRC member Larry Kirkman said, Just look to the north to Duval County to the level of animosity be tween the mayor and the city council. That would give you an idea of what you might have to look forward to. Kirkman also cited the idea that an elected county manager would basically be a part of a popularity contest in an elec tion and would not have to display any real skills just popularity. That person would also become very hard to re as opposed to a county manager who is appointed by the county commission and can be terminated by that commission. I think what we have now works, Kirk man said. CRC member Tamara Brandt agreed, citing especially the requirement in the county managers contract that calls for the person to be on call for 24 hours a day. I think that this county manager does an awesome job, she said. There are checks and balances. The county manager is not writing a check for 50 cents without somebody knowing about it before it clears the bank so everybody knows about it and where it belongs. Art Hooker, also a CRC member, agreed Kopelousos was doing a good job, and mentioned her level of compensation ($177,000 a year). Its my understanding that shes never taken a cost of living adjustment so I think were being well served in this county by a county manager who quite honestly could have gone and served anywhere based on her history. CRC member Amy Miller said she would echo Hookers comments. I looked at her compensation and I dont think she gets paid enough, she said. Among those speaking in the public comment section of the meeting was Van Royal, a Green cove Springs council mem ber. The reality of it right now is weve got ve county commissioners that are re sponsible to the public and they take that seriously and its our job to elect them and their job to hire the best qualied person and in my vein they have done that and it works, he said. George Egan, president of the Reinhold Corp., spoke about the countys current form of government being good for bringing jobs to Clay County. I spend a portion of every working week trying to bring jobs to Clay County and the most attractive thing we can do for companies outside of Clay County is to make our government work smoothly and efciently and be an attrac tive place to move, he said, adding that leads to jobs in Clay County that are hope fully high paying and therefore improve the quality of life. Former county commissioner Wendell Davis also spoke against changing the county manager position to an elected one. He also spoke in favor of Kopelousos, say ing she had helped greatly in moving Clay County forward in the outer beltway con struction, which will bring many jobs here. He called Kopelousos a cheerleader for jobs and economic development and men tioned that she was denitely available 24/7. Ive talked to her at midnight and shes answered the phone. Ive talked to her at 5:30 in the morning and she answered the phone, Davis said. Mike Cella, current vice chairman of the Clay County Commission, also spoke in favor of the existing form of government in the county, saying he had spoken to prob ably thousands of residents over the past few years and not one of them had com plained about it. Our form of government works. Its survived the test of time, he said. Dont x whats not broken. In the end, Stotler repeated that he had no personal complaints whatsoever with our government, but was glad the issue was debated. I dont have any strong feelings one way or the other. I just think the discussion needed to be had and we had it, he said. There was no motion made to bring the item before voters and no vote taken. I think that this county manager does an awesome job, she said. There are checks and balances. The county manager is not writing a check for 50 cents without somebody knowing about it before it clears the bank so everybody knows about it and where it belongs. Tamara Brandt, CRC member

With proper culture and care, you may never see some of these issues but it is best to be prepared if you do. Some pests you may nd on your azalea include lace bugs, spider mites, leafminers and azalea caterpillars. Lace Bugs Lace bugs are small insects that live on the underside of leaves and suck nutrients and water out of the leaves. This will cause a speckled look to the top surface of the leaf and tiny black dots of waste on the bot tom. The insect itself may be difcult to see but is cream colored with lacey wings and is around 1/10 of an inch long. These pests can be prevented by plac ing your shrubs in the right location, wa tering and fertilizing them correctly, or even with a strong spray from a hose to knock them off of the leaves. In spring, insecticidal soap or horticultural oil can be applied to the underside of the leaves and some systemic products can give yearround control if applied to the soil around the plant. Spider Mites Spider mites are not insects, but will feed on leaves with their sucking mouth parts causing a bronzing or rusty discol oration of the leaves. These are very small and are often identied by placing a piece of white paper under the foliage and beat ing the leaves gently with your hand. Some mites should fall off and you can then iden tify them. For control, insecticidal soap or hor ticultural oil can be applied to the under sides of leaves or use a miticide that is labeled for control of spider mites on orna mental plants. Always check the label be fore applying any pesticide and follow all directions and safety precautions. Leafminers Unlike the previous two pests, the leafminer is actually the larvae of a y that eats its way through a tunnel it chews within the leaf. This is often noticed as a squiggly path on the top of the leaf. Once inside the leaf, this pest is difcult to con trol and they are often not in great enough numbers to cause major damage. Azalea Caterpillar In our area it is also likely you may have issues with the azalea caterpillar. The damage of these pests will be chewed leaves and they are between one-half-inch and two inches long. Since they feed in groups and are fairly bright colored with a red body and black and yellow stripes, they are usually highly noticeable. For control, handpicking and crushing or placing the larvae in a container of soap water is of ten sufcient but if infestations are heavy enough, a pesticide labeled for control of these caterpillars could be used. 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.

AUGUSTINE After enduring the sur prise death of their coach just days before the softball season opener, the Ridgeview High softball team had a bit of regroup ing to do on their way to an eerily weird 6-0 win over Clay High in the district 4-6A championship game played April 27 at Pedro Menendez High School.

We went through a lot as a team this year and there was a turning point in the middle of the season that we decided that we were going to use (Coach Roger) Harveys death as a motivation. He would have loved this. We were tight in the beginning of the sea son with a lot of emotion, but then decided he played loose and had fun and thats where we needed to be. The title, Ridgeviews rst ever cham pionship trophy in softball, came by way of a rst inning of mishaps by Clay; three eld errors, that led to a quick 3-0 lead for the Panthers, and a seventh inning of mishaps that added the nal three runs. This means a lot for me; knowing that coach Harvey was here, said Kelsey Sol omon, a senior player for Harvey last year and now an assistant coach with Barker.

A walk to Hannah Fos ter led to a crazy-bounce single to Chloe Chambers that bounced off Clay second baseman Ali Sarman facemask to set up a run-scoring hit to Raven Little past third base. A single to right eld from Ashlyn Halford got a late throw to home to score run two and a drop of a yball from Sarman put the third run in. Every bit of tonight was Roger Har vey doing his job, said Clay coach Matt Lewis. We give them six errors; what would you expect? They came out using that momentum. Morgan threw solid. Lewis noted that the Panthers come-from-behind 3-2 seminal win over defending disttrict and region champion Ponte Vedra two nights prior; off a three run homer from Alyssa Ad ams in the seventh inning, was part of the Harvey mystique. They are playing high on Harvey and I dont blame them, said Lewis, a long-time coach with Harvey at Clay. Tonight is xable. Bryson concurred that Harvey played a part in the seminal win. That walkoff to put us here, he was denitely a part of that, said Barker. I felt for sure he had something to do with that. Clay advanced to the nal with a 10-1 win over Orange Park who squeezed out a round one 4-1 win over Menenedez to advance to that seminal. After the rst inning bonanza for Ridgeview, both teams settled down from the opening blitz to control the basepaths with Ridgeview pitcher Brit tany Michaels and Crutcher reballing batters back to the dugouts. As the night moved into the sixth inning with the score still 3-0, an an ticipated nal surge by Clay seemed im minent, but Michael got a strikeout and two yballs in the bottom of the sixth to set up a second three-run inning for Ridgeview. A single from Sarah Anderson fol lowed by a misplayed grounder to Jorge-Silva in right eld that rolled to the fence put one run in. A chopper over third base from Foster put a second run in with Foster surviving a weird run down situation between rst and second base on a long yball from Adams that left coaches discussing the umpire call for nearly 20 minutes. Two more ineld errors got run six in with third baseman Haley Stone holding on to a bobbling yball to end the surge. Michaels ended the game with y balls. Both teams advanced into the region 1-6A playoffs with Ridgeview (14-6) hosting Ed White (6-12) while Clay (1411) travels to Paxon (14-11) on Wed., May 2. Softball from page 17 By Ray DiMonda Correspondent OAKLEAF Oakleaf Highs reputation of power softball nearly got halted by a pitcher that refused to buckle under the Lady Knight repower, but in the end, af ter seven innings of grueling heavyweight punching that looked eerily similar to Chuck Wepner vs. Muhammad Ali, Oakleaf emerged with an eighth-inning squeeze bunt play to score a 3-2 district 2-8A semi nal win over Fleming Island that could very well be scored the game of the year for both teams. We knew the only way to beat Oakleaf was to get out ahead early and keep that lead said Fleming Island Head Coach Jen nifer Bucklew, who lost a quick 8-1 regular season game in March to Oakleaf. Madi (Davis, Oakleaf top pitcher) is a tough pitcher. She hits her spot, she hits her changeup well, she had that tonight and we just couldnt put anything else together after that. We told our girls they had to be creative to beat her and beat their team. We just couldnt get a ball through and were short of a home run by two feet. Against Fleming Island, Oakleafs Katie Kistler opened the scoring with a single and two stolen bases that put her on third before a wild pitch from freshman pitcher Morgan Kendrick put the rst run on the scoreboard. In the second inning, Fleming Island punched back with Tiara Peters singling off Davis and Morgan Grimm walking to set up a near-catastrophic deep y ball from Halle Corless that looked like it would make the Oakleaf High School parking lot.

Montalvo was fth behind Miller at the 2017 3200 champion ship with Miller at 9:37.28 and Montalvo at 9:38.88. Miller, a senior, and the school record holder in the 3200 meters, topped the re gion eld with his 9:25.46 winning effort that beat the eld by nearly two seconds. Miller also competed in the 1600 later in the day, but did not fare as well with a 4:33.62 effort for the 10th place with a 4:21.20 the winning time. Miller ran 4:30 to win the district title and has a 4:23 school record set this year. It wasnt his day in the 1600, but we are past that and ready to focus on the gold medal in the 3200, said Moritz. In the sprints and hurdles, Fleming Is land got top nishes from hurdler Glenn Rodgers and sprinters Anfernee McCaskill and Felipe Fernandez to put three more Golden Eagles in top contention for state medals.Rodgers, who transferred from Ridgeview last year to be able to compete in football and track, continued his blitz at tack on the state 110 high hurdle lists with his fourth sub-15 second effort at the re gion championships with a 14.74 nish for fourth place. Rodgers had crept lower into the 14s with a 14.78 split in the prelims after winning the district title in 14.92. He had good basic technique when he got here, said Fleming Island boys coach Chris Otero. We worked to get him to that rst hurdle in step because he was stut tering when he got there. From there, his form just clicked and he keeps getting fast er. He has to trust his steps. Rodgers, a junior, nished 12th at the Class 2A championships with a pedestrian 15.97 for Ridgeview last year. McCaskill, seventh at last years region 100 meters and an injury scratch in the 200, bounced back to get third in the 200. In the 100, McCaskill had his fastest time of the year at 10.92, but the wicked fast nal was won in 10.62 with seven of the eight nalists well under 11 seconds. Both Anfernee and Glenn were just shy of breaking their own school records with Glenns time from regionals sitting eighth on the state qualiers list, said Moritz. Another good run could see a medal. The 200 has always been Anfernees best event. Thanks to the plus eight rule, he made it out in the 100 a well. McCaskills 10.92 is the 13th fastest time in the state with Taylor Banks of Mi ramar top time ast 10.57. Hes been very explosive out of the blocks this year, said Fleming Island boys coach Chris Otero. He had some injury issues last year, but hes healthy and mo tivated for his senior year. He has been stronger on his nish more this year and thats a key in the 200. In the 200, McCaskill, fth ranked, is one of six sprinters under 22 seconds list ed for the state meet. Coach Chris Otero and Coach Jessica Track from page 17 Zayakosky have done a great job work ing with him this season and putting him in competitive meets, said Moritz. Hes been racing against the best all year and was prepared to compete in a fast region. In the 400, Fernandez, a senior, has also chipped away at his time with a hand ful of sub-50 second efforts in the last two weeks, hopefully, putting him on track for at least two more drops in time and shot at the state title. Fernandez nished second at the region meet in 49.13 with a 48.76 the winning time. His split has him eighth ranked in the state with the top two times under 47 seconds; 46.56 and 46.83 and the next nine under 49 seconds. Felipe was 49.28 in the region prelims and got handtimed at 48.94 in the 4 x 400. We asked a lot out of Felipe this week and he more than surpassed our expecta tions, said Moritz. He anchored both the 4x800 and 4x400 teams and ran in the 400, qualifying for state in all three. He is the rst athlete in school history to qualify for the state meet three events. For Oakleaf, Briley continued his path to a repeat state title; he is the 4A defend ing champion in the triple jump, with one of his best efforts with a 47-11.25 win ning jump. Briley, about a foot better than the state list and also third in the long jump at 21-10.25, has gotten close to the elusive 50 foot mark in the triple jump which has been his target all year. Oakleaf jumps coach John Carter has coyly hinted that the state meet will be where his best jumps will come. Briley is ranked 10th in the long jump with two jumpers both over 23 feet at the top. We work all year to be at our best at the biggest meet, said Carter. Melvin likes to have someone pushing him to go bigger. Brileys 47-11.25 jump is top ranked with three jumpers in the 46-plus foot range just behind him. He is a one of a kind athlete and that is what separates him from the others, said Carter. He is still working on his tech nique everyday. For Johnson, consistency has been the key thus far with Carter noting that her ex perience in the past two state meets could carry her to gold in two events. Johnsons winning leaps of 18-9 in the long jump and 38-9 in the triple jump; rst ranked and second ranked by just one inch, re spectively, put her in prime position to earn her rst track state medal. Johnson nished 13th in the triple jump and fth in the long jump last year, but is the only returning jumper in the top ve at the long jump and one of just three sophomores from last years top 15 nishers. Its all hers this year, said Carter. She has seen two years of state meet ath letes and it should be her turn this year. One other Oakleaf athlete, mammoth shotputter Jalen Rivers, just a sophomore, unloaded his best put of the year with his rst 50-plus mark; a 51-2.25 effort that earned third at the region meet. Rivers, with a 48-footer at districts, positioned himself as the third best on the state meet two feet from number one and just a foot to number two. For Fleming Island, also earning their trip to the state meet with either a top four nish or a Plus 8 invite were the boys 4 x 400 relay; Jared and Jacob Ashe, Austin St. Laurent and Fernandez, 14th ranked in 3:23.45 (3:15.78 top time) and the boys 4 x 800; Jared Ashe, Cameron May, Landon Opp and Fernandez, 16th ranked in 8:09.75 (7:52.82 top time); For Oakleaf, also earning a trip to the state meet was Tahja Peoples in the 200; sixth at regions in 26.13 and 22nd ranked (24.29 top state time). Region nishers for Fleming Island were; in the 200, Jasmine Morris and Charisma Brown (13th and 16th); in the high jump, Nick Ferendo (11th), Ella Shaw (14th) and Amaris English (15th); in the long jump Christian Cook (14th); in the triple jump, Darnell Deas (13th); in the STAFF PHOTO BY RANDY LEFKO Fleming Island High senior Felipe Fernandez has unique opportunity for three golds at Class 4A track championships with entry in the 400 and two relays. discus, Camilla May (12th) Britney Payne (13th); boys 4 x 100 (11th); girls 4 x 400 (14th), girls 4 x 100 (13th); boys 4 x 800 (6th); in the 800, Cameron May (13th); in the 3200, Emma Millson (11th); in the 3200, Kameron Wallizada (7th).

By Randy Lefko Sports Editor TALLAHASSEE St. Johns Country Day School distance runners Benjamin Kai les and Juliet Moody dug deep to push the paces of their respective races; the 1600 and 800, at the region 1-1A track championships to earn their tick ets to the Class 1A track championships on May 3-4 at the University of North Florida. Moody, just a seventh grader, in her rst state level race for coach Jay Bir mingham, ran a personal best and pro duced a strong kick to take fourth in the 800 in two minutes, 24.36 seconds in a top four eld that was separated by just 1:20. Juliet ran six-second PR and out kicked some much faster girls in the Re gion 800, said Birmingham. If she gets into the fast section of the state 800 (12 runners), I believe she will medal (top 8). Moodys nish got a 12th seed in the 800 with a 2:13.05 the top time and three runners under 2:20. In the 1600, Kailes, who has dropped his times incrementally toward the state meet, ran an eight second best time at 4:31.03 and has beneted somewhat from the competition in St. Johns dis trict with St. Josephs Sean Snyder. Kai les, with a 4:31.03 split for second to Snyders 4:30.80 in the region race, has 55 second 400 speed and Birmingham likes his chances for a state medal. Sean Snyder is a senior and state medalist last year, said Birmingham, noting Snyders seventh place nish in Class 1A last year in 4:36.77. I believe Benjamin can medal this year and may break the St. Johns record of 4:27.0 this season. He has twice cracked 55 sec in anchor leg of 4x400 relay. Class 1A track rffn tbfnf SEE ST. JOHNS, 22

With that, the Lady Blue Devils won a 20-12 district title from a feisty Orange Park High team for the 4-1A crown on April 24 at Baldwin High. They (Orange Park) are very talented and that quarterback (Harlee Sharp) is a good athlete back there, said Stilianou. We had a few dropped balls and missed assignments, but we can correct that. We beat them 27-0 in the season and maybe thought they didnt need to show up. From here on, we have to play as if its our last game because it really is. In seminal action on April 23, Clay rolled over Westside 47-0 while Orange Park won a tense 20-19 game over host Baldwin. In Class 2A, Fleming Island, the de fending district 1-2A champion, and Oak leaf both lost in their seminal matches at Mandarin High; 13-12 to Robert E. Lee for the Golden Eagles and 16-0 to Sandalwood for Oakleaf. Sandalwood beat Lee 24-0 to advance. Fleming Island lost in the region nals to Dr. Phillips of Orlando last year. In district 5-1A, Keystone Heights beat top seed Lecanto 12-0 in their seminal but fell to Belleview 33-12 in that champi onships held at Citrus High School. Clay moves into the region seminals with a Thurs., May 2 match at Terry Park er. Last year, Clay defeated Terry Parker but lost to Choctawhatchee in the region nals. In Clays seminal win over Westside, quarterback Ciara Zino continued her Joe Montana-like dominating play as the Blue Devil signalcaller with a rst quarter touchdown pass to Alexis Stilianou from 10 yards out with a PAT pass to Kimber Grif n. We have her rolling out and making op tion decisions on the edge, said Stilianou. Shes become more of a runner lately be cause defenses are sitting back on our re ceivers. We take what is open. Up 7-0 into the second quarter, Clay exploded with scoring blasts; two runs for touchdowns from Zino; one off a Lester Hayes-like interception from safety Lea Plante. Now up 20-0, Grifn snagged a De ion Sanders-like pick six interception for a Flag football Clay pulls out district title from Lady Raiders Orange Park defender Savannah Lyons steals end zone PAT pass to preserve 20-19 seminal win over Baldwin for Lady Raiders. touchdown from 30 yards out to push the score to 26-0 with a PAT to Abby Hawkins upping the score to 27-0 with 3:30 to the halftime break. A lofty punt return from Brookelyn Gerush put Clay inside the Westside 20 on the next exchange that turned into a Plante touchdown reception and a 35-0 halftime lead. After the break, Plante ignited the Clay fans with a zig-zagging, Marcus Allen-like 40 yard run to score the game at 40-0 on the rst play of the stanza. For Orange Park, in their seminal win over Baldwin, it was a Richard Shermanlike interception in the end zone from Sa vannah Lyons that was the difference as Baldwin came back to put the score at 2019 with just 1:55 left in the game. Baldwin scored rst against the Lady Raiders after defender Naeyli Williams nearly snagged a Lem Barney-like inter ception on Baldwins rst pass of the game. From there, after two series exchang es, Baldwin hit a wide open receiver over the middle for a 20 yard touchdown to go up 6-0. Sharp, showing some Fran Tarking ton-like mobility in the pocket wheeled and dealed with passes to Jacie Ankrom, who showed off some Lance Alworthlike smoothness after catching quick out passes, and senior Rosa Sawyer, who has emerged as the Don Maynard of Raider football with her downeld catches, includ ing a 55-yard scoring bomb against Flem ing Island last week. On the rst scoring play for Orange Park, Sharp hit center Tori Cole over them middle who made a Gronk-like catch be hind the Baldwin linebackers, then later aled back to Sharp on the run who found Larickya Cummings sneaking downeld like Walter Payton to paydirt from 30 yards out. Up 7-6 with Sharps pass to Sawyer on the PAT, Baldwin responded with a 40 yard run play from their John Riggins-looking tailback, but the Raider defense stiffened to force a punt. From 35 yards out, Cole made a John Mackey-like catch in the end zone to put Orange Park up 14-6 with Sharp adding the PAT point. Just before the half, after an Ankrom interception that looked like Ronnie Lottlike steal, Sharp just missed Sawyer on the y like Randy Moss on the nal play of the half. After the break, Sharp showed some Johnny Unitas-like coolness in the pocket before nding Cole at the one yard line. Sharp would plunge the yard in Earl Camp bell-like power to give the Raiders a 20-6 lead after a pass to Jordan Kinsall for the PAT. Baldwin was not letting Orange Park slip away with an easy fourth quarter as they rebounded with two scores; one a pass with just 27 seconds left in the third; the other, a scoring pass just after the two minute mark. Baldwin chose to go for the win, but Lyons made her interception.

May 3, 2018 CLAY TODAY 23 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Instead of a three run homer, Corless home plated Peters and Grimm and squelched the Knights faithful who found themselves down 2-1. From there, the match became a slugfest with Kendrick taking the best bat ters in the state to task with her versatility on the mound. That kid threw great tonight, said Oakleaf coach Christina Thompson. The rst time we faced her, we had some things gured out. Her ball was moving way bet ter tonight and the rise ball was working exceptionally well. She got us to chase and I was very impressed with her tonight. Oakleaf could not get any air off Ken dricks pitches, but, in the sixth, Angela Agurkis, the Knights power hitter softball put down a squeeze bunt that got Rebecca Koskey across home plate for a 2-2 score. When coach gave me the sign, I thought I have to get this done. I havent been producing hitting so if I need to bunt, I need to bunt and lay it down; there is no stopping me on that one. As soon as I put it down, the energy came up and we knew there was no stopping us now said catch er Angela Agurkis. Were going to come back and win this thing. After the seventh inning passed with no fanfare, Koskey teamed up with Kistler on base with a double and a stolen third base that set up an unlikely second squeeze bunt situation. Thompson signaled and Ko skey pulled the trigger. Ill give it to them; they nd a way to dig deep said Thompson. Even when were down, you get nervous, but you al ways have that inner hope, that feel that they are going to pull it off and thats what they did tonight. By the way, Oakleaf pounded Atlantic Coast 10-0 in the championship game. I think tonight we just came out r ing on all cylinders, said Thompson, who beat Atlantic Coast in the district nal last year, then dimed them 10-0 in the region seminal. Ive been on them all year that they havent had all three elements togeth er and how dangerous they can be if they can gure that out. Tonight, I was proud of them because we had pitching, we had de fense and we had hitting. All year we only had two of the three at any one time. This game, we came out on all levels tonight. Oakleaf (26-2) enters the region 1-8A playoffs with Tallahassee Lincoln (17-7) on Wed., May 2 at 7 p.m. Atlantic Coast (1113) travels to Tallahassee Chiles (21-3), the district 1-8A champion over Lincoln. Oakleaf from page 18 play good defense. They are a great team. Keystone Heights (17-10) now must travel to Eustis (19-5, 5A runnerup in 2017) for their region quarternal while Santa Fe (19-8) will host South Sumter (17-3) on Wed., May 2. Against Santa Fe, who Keystone Heights beat 8-2 in March and 1-0 in April en route to a 13-0 district record, Ludwig, in the ninth spot of the batting order and Jennings in the leadoff position, the pair gured in all of the Indians scoring. Jennings drove in Ludwig and Cami Worley with a double in the fth inning to drive in the Indians rst two runs. The senior also singled in the sev enth and, after stealing second base, came home along with Ludwig on Bailey Storeys base hit. The Indians fell behind in the decisive third inning, in which the Raiders scored six runs despite hitting only one ball out of the ineld. After ineld hits by Santa Fes Court ney Robinson and Jordie Bevington, Santa Fes Jay Carter hit a high bouncer to pitcher Daelynn Eatmon. Eatmon elected to throw to third base in an attempt to throw out Rob inson, but her throw arrived too late. With the bases loaded, the Raiders Bailey Ledvi Keystone from page 18 na bunted. Again Eatmon tried to eliminate the lead runner, but again Robinson beat her throw, allowing Robinson to score and Ledvina to reach rst. A wild pitch allowed Bevington to score, and an ineld single by Hailey Raulerson plated Carter. Eatmon then walked Santa Fes Riley Schnyder and hit Jenna Hornsby with a pitch to make the score 4-0. Robinson, who had led off the in ning, capped it with her second hit of the inning-a sharp single to right center that drove in two runs. Eatmon allowed only three hits in hold ing the Raiders scoreless in the other six in the bottom of the third when the Spartans exploded for four runs and moved out to a commanding 5-1 advantage. They sent nine players to the plate drawing three walks, and RBI single by Enter and scored two runs on wild pitches. We got off to a rough start but Brianna hit her spots and gave us what we needed, said Enter. Enter struck out six and induced ve in eld outs over the last four innings to close out The Fighting Christians. The rst time I faced them I was able to dominate them, but they made adjust ments in our second matchup. I wanted to focus on hitting my spots and letting my defense make plays behind me, said Bri anna Enter. Spartans from page 18 St. Johns Country Day School pitcher Brianna Enter is backbone of Spartans season that includes a district title. I thought they would play more small ball by bunting and forcing us to make plays. These teams know each other really well so we have to mix it up. Brianna Enter nings. She may have limited the damage in the third frame by throwing out the batter instead of trying to nail the lead runner, but Marquart supported her freshman pitcher. We were trying to be aggressive, said Marquart. I cannot fault her for that. The Indians outhit Santa Fe 13-7, but stranded eight runners. In the third and sixth innings, Keystone Heights failed to score after put ting two runners on with only one out. Santa Fes Ledvina made three outstanding plays at third base, including a reexive stab of a line drive off the bat of Worley, to squelch the rallies. The Indians might have drawn closer in the fth inning but for an umpires call that went against them. Jennings was called for the third out trying to return to third base after rounding the bag on a single by Bailey Storey. The shortstop [Santa Fes Robinson] made a great play, backing up the third baseman. But I saw her [Jennings] hand on the base and the shortstop tagging her up here, Marquart said while pointing to her waist. Molly Crawford, the Indians clean-up hitter, doubled to lead off the next inning. Keystone Heights almost rallied in the seventh inning. The Indians had already scored two runs on Storeys base hit, and put the tying run on base when Savannah Channel singled. But Channel was caught in a force out on a sharply hit ground ball by Megan Moncrief to end the game. The loss means that the Indians, now 17-10, will go on the road for the Regional seminal. Marquart is counting on leader ship from her six senior starters to bounce back. Its not over. We get to play another week, she said. If we hit like we did to night, we can beat anyone. Santa Fes Robinson went three for three with two RBIs and a run scored. The Raid ers, now 19-9, will host a regional seminal. Keystone Heights outelder Ashton Ludwig throws ball back in during district seminal 11-1 win over Newberry on April 25.

In the second seminal of the night, Oakleaf, the districts top seed, fell 4-1 to Atlantic Coast after scoring just one run on a bases loaded seventh inning. In district 4-6A at Clay High, Clay won a 10-0 match against Orange Park, but Ridgeview fell 7-4 to Ponte Vedra to keep the two county teams from a championship showdown. In Keystone Heights, the Indians lost to Newberry in the district 5-5A opener to end their season. In district 3-7A, Columbia beat Middle burg 3-1 and Gainesville won a 4-3 match against Vanguard. In district 2-3A, St. Johns Country Day School held off St. Joseph to win 7-6 to advance to that championship game on Thursday against University Christian, an 11-1 winner over Oak Hall. For Fleming Island, the unlucky season nally got a lucky bounce. We just had three straight games that we lost by a run in two and 10-5 in the oth er, said interim coach Grant Bigilin, who has lled in for head coach Marty Lanoux as he recovers from heart surgery. This team has been in a lot of games, but we nd a way to not close them. Tonight, they may have been tired of losing close games. Maybe its a turnaround for us. Fleming Island returns to Atlantic Coast to face the Stingrays on Thurs., May 3 in the district championship with Atlan tic Coast owning at 2-1 regular season win in March. Either of these two other teams would be ne for us to face because Oakleaf we tied 1-1 and Atlantic Coast we lost 2-1, said Bigilin. We gave both games away so this is our second chance. With Fletcher scoring in the second in ning off a throwing error, Fleming Island District 2-8A baseball Eagles trump Knights in district seminals responded with three runs; two off a single from Adam Peck after Collier Summers and Scott Kondroik both drew walks. Summers scored the rst run off a Tyler Hudson sin gle. Peck then drove in Kondroik and Hud son with a blast over the shortstop to put the game at a precarious 3-1. With senior Calab Lanoux controlling the mound, Fleming Island kept the Fletch er bats at bay with Lanoux getting a y out and strikeout to squash a bases loaded fourth inning for Fletcher. We just trust what we do all year, said Lanoux. We schedule the teams we play for a reason. Fletcher is a good rivalry be cause they dont like us and we dont like them. In the sixth, with Fletcher gaining some near-miss scoring opportunities, Kondroik again reached on a walk and advanced on a sacrice bunt from Hudson to set up a fourth run from Wilkersons single. In the nal at bat for Fletcher, Lanoux got himself in a pickle after two strikeouts to open the inning before he knocked down a sharp grounder that got to shortstop Noah McCollum late and put a Fletcher baserunner at rst base. A single to right eld was followede bya two run double that scored the game at 4-3. Lanoux buck led down and got the nal strikeout on a swinging curve ball. I told them we needed to get at least one more run before their seventh, said Bigilin. Then we get three outs and go home. Bigilin has channeled his playing days as a clutch player for Fleming Island High under coach Don Suriano into his coaching approach. Its fun being in charge of the deci sions, but I think Im seeing all the hard work weve put in to teach the little things in baseball, said Bigilin. Baseball is not all about the home run, but all the little pieces that move baserunners and get outs. Oakleaf held off the Stingrays with the score still at 0-0 into the sixth with pitcher Logan Schmidt and some nifty de fense from inelders Dustin Espinosa and Keegan Barrs, but two consecutive suicide squeeze bunts with the bases loaded put three runs on the board and the Knights in a hole. In the seventh, relief pitcher Noah De trick got hit with a triple that a wild pitch scored and put the game at 4-0 before Det rick got a strike out to end the inning. Atlantic Coast walked in Oakleafs lone run int he seventh after a double from Espinosa and two batters getting hit with pitchers set up a walked run in. Fleming Island Highs Adam Peck slammed this two run single in the second inning to put the Golden Eagles ahead 3-1 in their 4-3 district seminal win over Fletcher on Tuesday. Fleming Island advances to the district championship game against Atlantic Coast on Thurs., May 3. Atlantic Coast beat Oakleaf 4-1. Oakleaf High baserunner Dustin Espinosa watches Atlantic Coast pitcher release as he awaits a chance to score in seventh inning of Knights 4-3 district seminal loss to Atlantic Coast.

May 3, 2018 CLAY TODAY 25 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM in 2A with two jumpers on top with 6-7, three at 6-5 and 12 jumpers with Roy at 6-3.5. His stamina out there is much bet ter, said Nesi. People dont know how energy sapping standing around and wait ing to jump is. The cross country has really helped him to improve. Sampson, the triple jump champion in the district championships, improved to 46-0 inches at regions to advance after winning districts at 42-9.5. Samp son, who hit his 46-foot jump on his last jump, was just 1.5 inches off the top mark of Menendez Tristan Willis who is seeded tied for best jump at 46-1.5. Jacolbi has left up to two feet on the runway,said Nesi. If he hits the board dead on, he adds his speed and power to his jump and doesnt lose distance. That makes for long jumps. For Keystone Heights Guy, a junior, a 4:32.36 time in the 1600 edged out Tava res Dalton Brown for fourth place by just .02 seconds. We knew a 4:30 1600 was needed to get to state, said Keystone Heights coach Richard Bland. He showed some grit. In the 800, Guy hit a strong 1:59.37, one of his best career times, to take second behind Brown who won in 1:57.47. In the state seeds, Guys 800 nish gets him a 14th rank while his 1600 puts him at 20th. The top seed in the 800 is 1:55.71 while a 4:14.26 tops the 1600 with four runners under 4:20. From Clay, making the state Plus 8 lists were; in discus, Kelly Catlett (6th at re gions, 17th seed); Region nishers for Clay were; in triple jump, Jared Glisson (13th); in shot put, Ti anna Nichols (9th); in 110 hurdles, Aaron Weber (9th); in 300 hurdles, Samantha Franco (9th); 4 x 100 boys (9th) and 4 x 800 boys (13th).

For the region title, Washington Highs Tytavia Har dy won with a 5-5.75 leap with Petroskys rival Abigail Thorpe of Creekside second at 5-3.75. Petrosky beat Thorpe in the dis trict championships with a 5-5 leap. Kaley had problems with her footing early which caused her to be in a jump off for fourth place, said Middleburg High coach Craig Martin. During the jump off she cleared a height higher than the sec ond place jumper cleared. Her two jumps in the jump off looked perfect, she should be good at UNF with a chance to win. Petroskys Middleburg training partner, Bryce Quiett, the district 4-3A champion at 6-7.5, needed just a 6-5.5 leap to win his region title by two inches. Quiett is sec ond seeded for the 3A championships with a 6-11 leap the top mark of the season. Bryce is good. There is one jumper from the south region who jumped that 611, said Martin. We will see what hap pens. For Bronco sprinter Marcus Floyd, a second place nisher at the triple jump last year in Class 3A, the region 1-3A champi onship meet held at Florida High in Talla hassee on Thurs., April 26, produced some drama as the lithe sprinter and jumper got the triple jump title, got third in the 100, but walked off the track in the 200. First in the region triple jump at 44 feet, 6.25 inches, Floyd will need to punch up two feet plus to get into the medals at the state meet with the top mark at 4710.8.

Marcus jumped 46 feet mid season last year, said Middleburg High coach Craig Martin. He irritated a muscle in the 100 so he didnt nish the 200 nals. Floyd won the district 200 in 22.28, but will not run the state race where that time would rank 12th statewide behind six sprinters under 22 seconds. In the 100, Floyd, eighth in 3A last year at 11.22, was second in this years district 100 behind Bartram Trails Devin Coo per with a 10.84 effort. At regions, Floyd got third at 10.92 to be ranked 14th with Cooper ranked 16th statewide behind top two times of 10.44. St. Augustines Dexter Brown, third at the district 100, won the region title in 10.83 with Cooper fth. For Orange Park, sophomore Alex Col lier, the district champion and the region champion with a 48.79 effort, will be in hot water with a pair of sub-48 second times on top of the 400 meter race. Collier is ranked seventh and led a 1-2-3 district n ish in the 400 last week, but teammates Sean Dixon and Alex Meadows could not break the 50 second barrier with Meadows nishing 10th in 50.98 and Dixon 11th in 51.45. Two other outstanding region perfor mances came from Orange Park thrower Destiny Basden who took second in the shot put at 35-2.5 just four inches off from rst place and third in the discus at 105-11 with the winning toss at 123-8. Basden is 18th seeded in shot put and 17th seeded in discus. In the distance races, Orange Parks John Bear, a winner in the 800, 1600 and 3200 at districts, nished fourth in the 3200 in 9:52.55 and fth in the 1600 in 4:30.76 which got him a Plus 8 invite, but Bear did not nish in the 800. Bear got a 16th seed in the 1600 with a 4:12.56 the top time with his 3200 time seeded 19th with a 9:28.80 at the top. In pole vault, Middleburgs Matt Oli ver, fourth at districts at 12-9.5, nished 11th at regions at 11-9.75. Matt needed a foot personal record (to get out of regions), said Martin. We used a different pole to try and reach that (winner at 16 feet-plus), but the pole didnt quite work out. For Middleburg, in discus, Alex Bareld nished 10th at regions. For Orange Park, region nishes included, the boys 4 x 800 (11th); in long jump, Sean Dixon (12th) and, in long jump, Markez Sermons (13th).

May 3, 2018 CLAY TODAY 29 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM do and follow our Facebook page and see what were doing, were in the schools, were already there. Asdot then presented some numbers to the council, saying that his department had been involved in 1,411 programs at C.E. Bennett since 2015 and 1,709 at the junior high in the same time period. I think that speaks volumes right there, Asdot said. Thats what we do. Timberlake and the council decided to make an emergency motion, and voted unanimously, to send Asdot and City Man ager Danielle Judd to Thursdays school board meeting to present their case for funding members of the Green Cove Springs Police Department for their two schools. Weve already got heavy involvement in the schools, and our ofcers have al ready done a phenomenal job of engaging themselves in the community, Timberlake said. It makes sense to use people that are already involved in the schools and that the students already know. Also in discussion was Spring Park Pool, which is now xed up and ready for the rst full season after last years con struction snafu caused a late opening. That pool is a huge attraction and will continue to be a huge attraction for this city, said long-time pool supporter and city council member Van Royal. The pool will begin operations Saturday, May 5, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., hours that will continue on the weekends until Memo rial Day, May 28 this year, when the pool will open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. all days Tuesday through Sunday with Mondays re served for cleaning. After Labor Day, the pool will revert back to the weekend hours through the rst day in October. Fees for the pool are set at $4 for adults and $2 for children under the age of 17, with seniors 65 or older and active duty military being charged $3. Passes will again be available at $84 per adult and $63 for children, seniors and military. Family passes, for a group of ve, will be $200 for the season. For more information, contact the pools long-time manager and newly ap pointed Green Cove Springs Parks and Recreation Director Glee Glisson by email at gglisson@greencovesprings.com, or by calling (904) 297-7500 ext. 3332 Aside from the recently renovated pool, the city will be doing a rehaul of another city-run entity the electric utility system, after unanimously passing a resolution Tuesday that will allow the city to borrow the not-to-exceed amount of $10.7 million from CenterState Bank, the lender chosen the last time the council met. Passing the resolution sets the money in motion with the city now having ap proved the full amount as well as any costs related to the transaction. The $10.7 million is being borrowed at a 3.3 percent xed rate over 15 years with the city paying $915,445 annually until the term is up in 2033. The total interest paid by the city on the loan is expected to be around $3,179,322. We are accelerating projects that wouldve taken us well in excess of 10 years to even begin to work on, and hope fully theyll be completed over the next three to ve years, said Timberlake. It will make a huge difference to the reliabil ity of our electric service. Following the resolution, there were no additional action items, but the council heard a presentation from North Florida Transportation Planning Organization rep resentative Wanda Forrest concerning im portant transportation improvements com ing to Green Cove. Forrest talked about four major areas where road resurfacing and sidewalk im provements will be completed, including the First Coast Expressway bridge across the St. Johns River just south of Green Cove Springs that will take palce sometime in 2022-2023, and a resurfacing project along U.S. Highway 17 from Black Creek going up to Water Oak Lane on Fleming Island, which is expected to start con struction later this year or in early 2019. The last two areas of improvement are sidewalks that will go in along Governors Creek Bridge and along N. Palmetto Ave nue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in the city. Where there are not sidewalks, there will be sidewalks on both sides, said Janis Fleet, city Development Services director. Royal, who has been asking for im provements to the sidewalks along the Governors Creek Bridge during previous years TPO presentations, has nally got what he asked for. Thank you, particularly for that bridge its a safety issue, Royal said. It will make it a lot easier for a lot of us to have connectivity. School from page 1 By Karassa Stinchcomb For Clay Today ORANGE PARK A nonprot organization that provides services to seniors honored four seniors for their community service. The eleventh annual Golden Years Gala took place Wednesday morning at Club Continental to honor nine Clay County se niors who were nominated for their volun teer service in the community. Shepherds Center of Orange Park sponsored the Gala and presented awards to four volunteers in four categories: Life time Achievement, Man of the Year, Woman of the Year and Volunteer of the Year. Those honored annually are nominated by people in the community. Nominators write a letter about the person and what they have done to serve the community. A committee then reads the nominations and select from the eventual winners. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Ron Coleman, who spends his time volunteering and serving on Clay County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Clay County Development Authority, the St. Johns College District Board of Trustees, Orange Park Medical Center Board of Directors, Clay County Council on Aging and YMCA of Floridas First Coast and the Early Learning Coali tion of North Florida. Coleman also serves at the Calvary United Methodist Church on the Adminis trative Council as a Certied Lay Speaker and choir member. I absolutely did not expect to win. I was quite surprised by it and very thrilled by it, Coleman said. Volunteering is something that I just naturally do, and this is a great reward. Gordon Danielson accepted the award for Man of the Year. Danielson has volun teered at Community Hospice and Pallia tive care since 2009. He also volunteers at Penney Farms Hagen Center and Heritage Sharing programs. Judy White received the Woman of the Year award. White spends her time vol unteering at the Salvation Army Womens Auxiliary, as a Nurse Advocate to the el derly and she led the Empty Bowls fund raiser. I am humbled and honored there is no way I am deserving of that, White said. I think it was Gods design that we give back to our community. Nancy Keown was awarded Shep herds Center Volunteer of the Year. She teaches jewelry making at the Adventures in Learning Program. Keown has donated handmade jewelry to be auctioned at pre vious Galas. When I found out I was nominated, I was very surprised and felt very honored and blessed, said Keown. The Gala was hosted by ElderSource to benet The Shepherds Center of Or ange Park. The sponsored event had 180 attendees and featured both a silent and live auction. The auctions are expected to raise around $24,000, said Lori Donalty a volunteer at The Shepherds Center of Or ange Park. Ernie Cohen emceed the event, which is usually emceed by First Coast News Re porter Ken Amaro, but Amaro was unable to attend this years Gala. If we just do one random act of kind ness every day to somebody in need, we can certainly make this a peaceful world, White said.
