Principals from schools in Clay County gathered at Fleming Island High Teacher Training Center Tuesday for the eight-hour course.

The training can impact your personal life, family and then whatever environment youre in, said Roxy Hall, one of the three trainers leading the event.

The area around Black Creek alone, with its dark bottomless depths and dense woods, is said to be littered with bodies of the losers from ghts about politics, live stock, land and love for four centuries. Legends of lost treasure and gold seem to attract considerable attention. It ap pears that pirates, the Spanish, the leaders of the Confederacy and otherwise capable large plantation owners were remarkably careless with their valuable assets. Privateer and freebooter during the Revolutionary War, Dan McGirt, with a British ship in hot pursuit is said to have ducked into Doctors Lake, unloaded his captured golden inventory and promptly dumped it in the spring at the western boundary of todays Orange Park. Carrying a lighter load, he easily evaded his pursu ers. One version of the tale purports that he returned years later to reclaim the trea sure and because his drunken crew raised such a ruckus that they woke the very short-tempered locals on land who lynched McGirt and his crew and left them hang ing in the trees to moan on dark nights and breezy days. This version was popular dur ing the late 1800s and early 1900s when lawyer, Leonidas Wade, of Green Cove Springs owned the property and bottled the spring water to sell to northern re sorts. Sadly, for Wade, it only increased adolescent trafc. It is said that during the First Spanish Period in Florida, the peculiar decision was made to bury a large collection of minted coins and bars somewhere along the old Indian trail that meandered west in what is now southern Clay County. The Spanish were usually pretty good about keeping track of their gold but Perhaps there is something in the water or the moss. Likewise, a team of Confederate sol diers is supposed to have been tasked with transporting the last remnants of the rebel treasury to the Florida east coast for dispatch to the islands so that the South might rise again. The gold never made it to the rendezvous and was lost somewhere in Clay County. In the 1880s, when Wash ington Benedict was developing Orange Park, early settler William Maierfeldt gave tourist wagon tours to the A.M. Reed plan tation called Mulberry Grove just across the line in Duval County. Maierfeldt always spun the tale that Reed in anticipation of occupation during Reconstruction buried all the family silver and gold in the yard and then could not nd it. Reed probably did bury the familys valuables and its a good thing he did be cause both the plantation house and his large home in Jacksonville were occu pied by Union troops and he was required to swear the loyalty oath three different times. Hard to believe that a man of Reeds ability could lose his candle sticks and sil verware in his own yard but the plantation was right next to Clay County where valu ables seemed to go missing all the time. Of course, no one is certain these trea sures were ever really here but locals crafted good stories about them and maybe folks will start stumbling over them any day now. In the meantime, share the sto ries. Treasure hunter George Mobley and the huge hole he dug beside Walnut Street in Green Cove Springs in the 1940s with the aid of his gold nding machine described as a forked stick with glass tubes lled with what looked like turnip seeds. His treasure hunt ended with a 25-foot hole, no treasure and Mobley moved on to Miami. Tales of treasures gone missing in Clay County Health from page 1 they think about rst aid. Weve never had training sessions that really truly focused on better understand ing our students and our learners and gaining access to them, Superintendent Addison Davis said. This is a training we brought over with many partnerships to have a common understanding of how stu dents deal with anxiety, depression, how they are exposed to potentially criminal or violent acts, or how are they exposed to mental health issues, so that we can have a better way of servicing students. The training comes two months after 17 people were killed in the school shoot ing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida. Since the shooting, Florida school districts are being asked to raise awareness about mental health, both among students and staff. Mental illness is something that has been stigmatized and kept below the radar in the community, and so its unfortunate that its taken things like Parkland and other national events to surface these con cerns, said Adele Reed, principal of Clay Hill Elementary. An educators well-being and mental health is often overlooked because the mental health of the student is what is of ten examined, but Davis wants to do a bet ter job at focusing on the educators men tal health. We talk about creating the best working conditions for adults every single day, and todays training provides another avenue for us to have a better understand ing of mental health literacy as it relates to how adults interact and how to use that information to better our students in Clay County, Davis said. Rodney Ivey, principal at Swimming Pen Creek Elementary, said the Mental Health First Aid Training is important and will help him better understand how to help educators who may be struggling with a mental illness. The things teachers and schools are having to deal with and interact with on a daily basis is so much more than the math, science and language arts curriculum is sues, Ivey said. As a part of handling stu dents challenges, a lot of time, teachers will take those on themselves, and so to be able to provide some support for teachers as they are going through all of that is im portant. The Clay County School District is work ing to expand the training to all educators and to Clay County Sheriffs deputies who work in Clay County schools. The Mental Health First Aid Training program has a goal of training 10,000 people in the Jacksonville area on mental health rst aid over the next three years, according to Hall.

By Satesh Bidaisee, DVM R esearchers just discovered a simple way to ght obesity, heart disease, and mental illness by giving people puppies. That may sound barking mad. But new medical research shows that dogs, cats, and oth er four-legged friends can sig nicantly boost peoples physi cal and mental health to the point where in teracting with pets can actually be an effective form of therapy. Consider how pets could help the 75 million Ameri cans who suffer from high blood pres sure, which increases the likelihood of experiencing a heart attack or stroke. In one study of more than 1,500 people aged 60 and over, dog owners had sys tolic blood pressure that was 3.34 mil ligrams of mercury lower than that for non-owners. Systolic blood pressure is the pressure in a persons blood vessels when his heart beats the rst number in a blood pressure reading. A difference of just over 3.34 mil ligrams of mercury may not sound like much. But for each milligram of mercu ry decline in blood pressure, a persons risk of stroke goes down by 5 percent. Pet owners also exercise more. A study conducted by Australian re searchers found that dog owners were physically active for an hour more each week than those who didnt have dogs. My own research aligns with these ndings. In a survey of people in Gre nada home to St. Georges University, where I teach my team found that less than 13 percent of pet-owners were obese. By contrast, half of the people in our sample who did not own pets were obese. Keeping blood pressure low and staying active is great for the heart. One analysis of 3.4 million people spanning 12 years revealed that those who owned pets had a signicantly low er risk of cardiovascular disease than those who were pet-less. Pets also improve peoples mental health. In one Israeli study, scientists el evated participants stress levels by telling them that they might have to hold a tarantula. Then, to calm the par ticipants down, researchers gave them either toy rabbits, toy turtles, real rab bits, or real turtles. The toys did noth ing to relieve stress. But petting both the hard shell of real turtles and the soft fur of real bunnies calmed partici pants. A survey of veterinary school stu dents produced similar results. Inves tigators asked students to report their stress levels on a scale from one to ten, as well as whether they had a pet at home. Six in ten people who did not own pets reported stress levels of eight or higher; only four in ten pet-owners said that they were similarly stressed. By Joe Henderson FloridaPolitics.com T he U.S. Supreme Court ruled Mon day that its legal for Congress or in dividual states to allow gambling on college and pro sports if they want to. Yikes. It might be a good idea to cover your ears now because the noise on both sides of this issue is sure to reach brain-splitting levels. This battle for or against making this legal in Florida might be unlike any thing the people of this state have ever seen, and thats say ing a lot. But heres a little something to con sider while Florid ians work this out: Sports wagering in our state will con tinue whether its legal or not. It always has. It always will. Do lawmakers who stand in front of a microphone and rail about the evils of gambling really believe that puts even a BB-sized dent in the innate desire of some humans to take the Bucs and 6 points against the Patriots? And you know those ofce fantasy leagues? Money is changing hands, people. The next time you get stuck in an elevator with a guy who wants to tell you how his fantasy baseball team is doing, remember, he probably has a wad of cash riding on the outcome. All those March Madness pools? Um, in the largest percentage of them the winner gets more than bragging rights. The amount of money already wagered on sports is staggering, and most of it is done illegally. Forbes estimated that $93 billion with a B was ILLEGALLY wa gered on college and pro football in 2015. Fox Business reported that nearly $5 billion with a B was wagered on the Super Bowl this year. Of that, an estimated 97 percent was done ILLEGALLY. Well, its a new dawn, maybe. Against that backdrop is a little thing called Amendment 3 that will be in front of voters in November. It basically says that if it passes, any future expansion of gambling would have to be approved by voter refer endum. That almost assuredly will include sports wagering. Heres where the noise will be the 4 CLAY TODAY May 17, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM The views and opinions expressed on this page are those of the authors and do not necessarily reect the opinion of the Clay Today.

One side will be screaming VOTE NO and defeat the measure so pro-gambling interests can get busy lin ing up support in Tallahassee for the next Session to pass a sports-betting bill. My guess is that hotel owners will be particularly receptive to this argu ment. The other side will be screaming VOTE YES! Betting on sports BAD. Gambling in general BAD! If that side wins the argument, the savvy or determined sports bettor here will grumble and do what theyve al ways done call their bookie. And the state gets zero. The expansion of casino gambling in Florida has been a contentious issue for years that the Legislature doesnt seem to be able to solve and probably never will. For one thing, Disneys ofcial tsktsk on the expansion of casinos has car ried considerable sway. This seems different though. This isnt about building more casi nos, at least not yet. This is something the state could strictly control at what likely would be a considerable prot. A lot of current wagering is done online at offshore sites. The state could put those cats out of business in a hurry and reap a considerable prot while do ing so. Pro sports leagues have been pre paring for this day for a long time. While the ofcial stance remains that theyre not big fans of wagering on their games, they know what a nancial bonanza this could be. Its not just owners, either. Unions in the four major sports are clamoring already for players to get their share of the money. A statement from the National Foot ball League summed it up nicely: We intend to call on Congress again, this time to enact a core regulatory framework for legalized sports betting. We also will work closely with our clubs to ensure that any state efforts that move forward in the meantime protect our fans and the integrity of our game. Translation: We dont really like this idea, but if its happening then were damn sure going to get our cut. Thats one of only two sure things in all of this. The other is that no matter what happens, sports wagering will continue in Florida. You can bet on it. n Joe Henderson has enjoyed a 45year career in newspapers, including nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. Florida is wacky, wonderful, unpredict able and a national force.

So its only natural for families to want every effort to be made to save their pets during an emergency situation such as a re. Clay Humane shares that feeling and their recent donation of pet oxygen masks to Clay County Fire Rescue shows that. Pet oxygen masks are specically de signed for use on animals and function the same way that normal oxygen masks do for humans. Smoke and carbon monoxide in halation can be extremely harmful to pets, resulting in death before they can be taken to a veterinarian for help. Fire and rescue crews having access to pet oxygen masks will allow pets to be treated faster, saving more lives. Clay Humane donated 10 sets of the masks to Clay County Fire Rescue Station 17 at 3394 Peoria Rd. near Orange Park last week. Station Captain Bernita Bush said that the sets will be distributed to rescue units around the county. Bush also said the masks could be used for wildlife affected by brush or wild res in the area as well. Each set of masks contains three sizes small, medium and large. The masks can be used on a range of animals, from dogs and cats to ferrets, birds and more. Each set costs approximately $90. Despite the cost of the sets, approxi mately $900, Clay Humane Executive Di rector Linda Welzant said the low-cost pet clinic just wanted to do what they can to help the animals and pet owners. We wanted to help the animal owners in our community by supporting the efforts of our re and rescue professionals so they will have the right tools to give our animals their best chance at survival, said Wel zant. Bush and Deputy Chief Jason Boree said that while there are other methods used to help pets after a re, these masks are better than any of those methods. They provide more concentrated oxy gen and help contain it around the nose and mouth of the animal so that it can work faster, said Boree. While these masks will help save the lives of pets, both Bush and Boree stressed that priority should never be given to save Clay Humane donates pet masks to re department PHOTO PROVIDED BY CLAY HUMANE Clay County Fire Capt.

The council voted 4-0 with council member Pam Lewis recusing herself to accept the land use interpretation that a property containing multiple lots can be returned to 50-foot lots of record and have homes that conform to R-1 zoning built on the properties. The bulk of the discussion at Tuesday nights meeting of the Green Cove Springs City Council centered around an issue placed on the agenda at the request of Lewis at the May 1 meeting. The issue is that a lot that previously housed a large 50-year-old home had been split up and sold. The R-1 zoning that the city adopted in that area about 40 years ago, however, would not allow a lot that size to have a dwelling placed on the prop erty. What Lewis and her neighbors took issue with, though, is the fact that the smaller, 50-foot wide lot is a lot of record, meaning it is one of the original lots from the original layout of Green Cove Springs. According to City Attorney Jim Arnold this designation also allows the lot to be returned to that lot of record and have a house built as long as that house conforms to all other standards, such as yard size and square footage, spelled out in R-1 zon ing. At the May 1 meeting, Lewis, her hus band and a couple of their neighbors spoke against building smaller houses on smaller lots saying it would lower the value of their riverfront properties. Some residents went as far as to say that if this house were to be built it would ruin their neighborhood. Its very upsetting to people that have invested a lot of money in their properties and were very concerned about our prop erty values, Lewis said at that meeting. I know a lot of people are upset, Im up set about it, I live in this neighborhood so I have a vested interest in this as well. Lewis asked Arnold to look more closely at the situation and determine whether or not the lot of record would actually trump the R-1 zoning that would prohibit building on a 50-foot wide lot and return with that information at Tuesdays meeting. Development Services Director Janis Fleet led the discussion citing her own re Home lot size stirs controversial debate search into the issue and ndings locally where homes were being built on 45-foot wide lots. According to Fleet, it is becom ing fashionable to build nice homes on smaller lots to keep costs down and elimi nate yard maintenance.

Obits from page 8 Allegation from page 1 absolute most discouraging item to even bring up in my mind is that it must be my gender, Thomas said. Before saying this, Thomas listed things she believes are not reasons she wasnt nominated for the position of vice mayor citing that it couldnt be that she has an underlying agenda, as in her words, she does not. She said it cant be because she openly supported a candidate last year as much of the council has done the same. She also said that could not be jealousy as she doesnt believe her fellow council members hold such an emotion. Thomas continued listing reasons it couldnt be before arriv ing at the issue of gender. Yes, I am female. I have the divine abil ity to bring children into this world. And, because I am feminine, I do not throw my voice or assert myself in a way that takes up a lot of verbal and physical space. I am thoughtful in my words and actions. I am a bridge builder and I am a woman of vision, Thomas said. If anyone mistakes those qualities for weakness, they are sadly mis taken. Thomas believes that the Orange Park Town Council should formalize a rotation process ensuring that any form of possible discrimination towards any council mem ber is put to rest. We must ensure that no one ever has to make this speech again due to their gen der, race or religion, Thomas said. I have been denied a formalized leadership role in this Towns history but let that not ever be again for anyone who is so greatly honored to serve the people of this Town. Thomas speech was met with a large amount of applause and a number of public comments condemning Raymonds nomina tion. I want to apologize for what has hap pened to you [Thomas], former U.S. Navy Master Chief Randy Anderson said. Mayor Gary Meeks, if this has happened, it is our duty to correct it and if it is a fact that it has happened [gender discrimination], I would expect these people to resign their positions and I think a lot of people in Or ange Park would agree with me. Others spoke directly to the new vice mayor during their three minutes in front of the podium. From a womans point of view, coun cilwoman told you how she felt and then we have the new vice mayor thats already sworn in that says he doesnt feel that way, Earl Padgett said. But yet, hes not a woman so he wouldnt know how that would feel so I just wanted to say, take a minute to think about what youve done this is something thats going to last for a while change needs to come. Others spoke out in favor of Thomas speech and not in favor of Raymond be coming the vice mayor and each speaker was met with applause. After the meeting, Meeks, who made the nomination for Raymond to become vice mayor, said it has nothing to do with gender. It has nothing to do with gender, Meeks said. I thoroughly enjoy working with Thomas but my nomination has to do with experience, which Raymond has more of. Meeks said the reason he didnt discuss this topic with the public was because he felt it would be counterproductive. For him, he feels that Raymond, who has served as mayor before(in the 1980s), is the most experienced and because of that, most capable of holding the seat of vice mayor. According to Meeks, Raymond has spent the most time on the council and because of that, he felt that nominating Raymond as vice mayor was the most appropriate line of action. He also stated that if some one felt Thomas should be vice mayor, they should have nominated her and opened up the council for discussion. There were no nominations from the council for Thomas. Raymond did not publicly speak on this subject, other than to say he does not feel what Thomas feels. Raymond was the rst council member to leave after the meeting was adjourned and he did so quite quickly, leaving no time for questioning. In other business, new council member Roland Mastandrea, who recently beat Eu gene Nix in a race for Seat 3 of the Orange Park Town Council, was sworn in. During the meeting, which was Mastandreas rst, he asked the council to approve an Ad Hoc Economic Development Advisory Commit tee. [Sanctioning this committee] will al low us to work with [developers, nanciers and property owners] so that we can be in volved in plans of what can happen in this town, Mastandrea said. Essentially, this Ad Hoc Economic De velopment Advisory Committee, according to Mastandrea, would serve to connect business leaders, developers, nanciers, property owners and the government of Orange Park together to create a vision for the future of the town and work together to bring that future into fruition. At its most basic and broad level, this committee would serve to bring economic growth to Orange Park, or at least try to, Mastandrea said. Without economic growth, the Town of Orange Park will be faced with reductions in service including our Police and EMS. Property values will go down and this will result in lowering values of homes in town, Mastandrea said. In cities across the country that do not stay current with developments, the overall quality of life decreases and we are trying to stop Or ange Park from potentially becoming one of those cities. Raymond was concerned with the com mittee serving as an Ad Hoc committee, citing that they would have to follow Sun shine Laws which rule that discussion can only take place in a public, noticed meet ing. Mastandrea said he welcomes those laws and takes no issue with them. Meeks found himself concerned with the vision of the committee as he couldnt quite under stand the committees purpose. Thomas felt that the scope of the committee should be narrower but that regardless, the coun cil should give the committee a chance. After 45 minutes of discussion, no vote was taken but instead, but the council de cided to bring Mastandreas committee un der the umbrella of the councils Land Use Committee. I had never considered this but I am very OK with this, Mastandrea said. Its a great idea and Ill still be able to accomplish what I originally planned for. As far as the name of this old-turnednew committee, Mastandrea said a new name will be given to it in the coming weeks. He also said this committee will meet as soon as possible and he plans for the committee to meet more often than once a month.

The Florida Constitution states that No justice or judge shall serve after attaining the age of seventy years except upon tem porary assignment or to complete a term, one-half of which has been served. Scott received Fosters letter on April 10 and convened the Fourth Circuit Judi cial Nominating Commission on April 23, which announced the vacancy during the week of May 1. After learning of the vacancy, Trotti led his qualifying papers for the seat on May 3 including sending a $5,843.20 check for the qualifying fee. Trotti was placed on the Division of Elections website as Qual ied in Group 6 for the Fourth Judicial Circuit on May 3 but was then removed that same day. Trottis suit, which was led in Leon County, argues that he was improperly removed as a qualied candidate for the seat and that the seat should be lled by election rather than appointment by the Governor. The suit cites both the Florida Constitution as well as several previous Sued from page 1 cases brought before the State Supreme Court to support Trottis argument. This is not the rst suit Trotti has brought against Detzner. In 2014, Trotti led a suit against Detzner for a similar situation as the current suit. Circuit Judge Donald R. Moran Jr, sent his letter of resignation to Scott with the date to take effect on January 2, 2015. Trotti led paperwork with the Divi sion of Elections on April 2, indicating he planned to run for that seat. He was listed as a candidate for Group 12 for the Fourth Judicial Circuit. On April 25, Trotti re ceived an email stating that the seat would be lled by appointment rather than elec tion and that Trotti should withdraw his candidacy. Trotti sued Detzner, petitioning the court to compel Detzner to accept his qualifying paperwork citing some of the same cases being cited in the current law suit. His petition was denied and the court stated that Trotti had failed to show that the Secretary had a clear legal duty to ac cept his qualifying papers and fees and qualify him for Group 12 in the 2014 elec tion as the law is clear that the vacancy created by Judge Morans resignation must be lled by appointment. The reason the vacancy must be lled by appointment rather than election was because Morans resignation date was three calendar days (one business day) before the expiration of his term. This left the seat physically vacant, even if only for a day, which allowed it to be lled by ap pointment rather than election. Trottis current suit faces the same is sue as his 2014 suit. Judge Fosters res ignation will take effect seven days before the end of his term, leaving a physical vacancy of four business days. Trotti is arguing that a four-day vacancy is not an unreasonable amount of time that would require the election process to be circum vented. Governors appointing judges is not a rare occurrence or one that is limited to Florida. All but four states allow the Gov ernor to appoint judges when necessary. However, Governor Scott appears to appoint judges at a higher rate than most. Since taking ofce in 2011, Scott has ap pointed 263 judges. Among other governors holding ofce for that same timeframe, only California Gov. Jerry Brown has ap pointed more (422) while Ohio Gov. John Kasich is behind Scott with 184 appoint ments. While California has no mandatory retirement age for judges, both Florida and Ohio require judges to retire by age 70. There is also the opinion of Judge Philip J. Padovano, now retired, who was one of the First District Court of Appeal judges to oversee Trottis appeal of the 2014 deci sion. Padovano disagreed with the major ity opinion of the court and gave several reasons why. Padovano said that the reason given for the number of days of physical vacancy be ing irrelevant is that deciding what consti tutes too long or too short would lead to arbitrary results. However, Podavano argued that judg es are well-equipped to make decisions like those and there is a greater danger in following an inexible rule, no matter how unfair the result may be, simply for the sake of following the rule. Podavano further argued that the prec edent being set by the 2014 decision would end up being abused by people who want to manipulate the election process for their own objectives. The example Podavano used was if two judges were to retire, one who supports the governor and another that opposes him, they could use their re tirement to allow or deny the governor the power of appointing his replacement. It would be as simple as how and when they announced their retirement. While both judges would have com pleted the required process legally, the ap pearance and method used would directly impact the electoral process. I see no reason why the court should allow the election process to be circum vented in this way, states Podavano in his opinion to the court. While Trotti could not be reached for comment by deadline and Scotts ofce de clined comment, the application and nomi nation process continues. Judicial applicants have until 5 p.m. on May 23 to submit their applications to the Judicial Nominating Commission. The Commission then has until June 22 to com plete the selection process and submit the nominees to Scott. In 2016, Trotti ran for a Fourth Judi cial Circuit judgeship but was defeated by Judge Bruce R. Anderson by 61.8 percent to 38.2 oercent of the vote. Gov.

May 17, 2018 CLAY TODAY 11 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfntnb fttf rfntbtnttffrfrntbrbr Debate from page 7 Fortunately, or unfortunately, thats the trend, Fleet said. Fleet said that it was her opinion that properties like the one on Lewis Drive should be allowed to go back to lots of re cord, as that seems to be the standard for the way things like this are dealt with. Following Fleets introduction, Arnold got into his research. Arnold started by cit ing his sources, saying that at a recent mu nicipal law conference he inquired into the issue with anyone who would hear him out. He also said he spoke with Brenna Durden, the city attorney for Atlantic Beach who has done work as an outside counsel for the city when they needed third-party legal advice. From his ndings, lots of record are to be upheld unless there is specic code language that species otherwise. Durden advised that Atlantic Beach has included a provision to prevent this specic thing from happening, preventing lots that have been combined from being broken back down. Arnold said, though, that while At lantic Beach and other municipalities have these provisions, Green Cove and most other places do not. The owner of the lot in question, Steve Santorsola, spoke after Arnold, saying that he bought a property with the under standing that he could put a home there, and doesnt understand why anyone would want to prevent that. We ask that we be granted the ability to build a home, our home, in this neigh borhood to become one with this commu nity, Santorsola said. Second to speak during public comment was Rosalind Arnold, the realtor who sold the lots and said she understood that a lot of record can be built on as long as the home meets all other R-1 requirements. Before I sell anything I go check it out, she said. I would never want to sell somebody something that he couldnt use it for what he intended to buy it for. After hearing the report, council mem bers seemed to agree with city staff and Council member Mitch Timberlake made a motion to accept the report and allow the land use interpretation. Council member Van Royal seconded the motion. Though the council seemed at ease with the issue, Lewis spoke up before a vote could be taken with her comments. The issue here is not the size of the homes that are going to be built there, Lewis said. The home that was originally built there 50-something years ago was a nice home, and it was spread over a much larger portion of the property and it was that way for 50 years and our codes talk about non-conforming. Its very concern ing to me that you can suddenly go back to a lot of record from 100 years ago when something has been used in a different way for 50 years. Lewis continued, having abandoned her argument from the May 1 meeting that building on the 50-foot lot would lower property values in the neighborhood, hers included. She instead focused on her opin ion that since the lot of record preceded the large home that the neighbors had got ten used to, it should render smaller homes on smaller lots to be non-conforming uses of the property. We were accustomed to a large home, however disheveled it was, being on that property, Lewis said. Nobody ever en visioned that there would be 50-foot lots there. Lewis said she disagrees with the city attorney, and that she considers the 50foot lot of record to be non-conforming. She then moved on to her opinions on Roy als question at the previous meeting as to whether or not Lewis would recuse herself from the vote based on her personal in terest in the issue, specically comments about property values being affected. I was, basically, asked to recuse my self because I live in the neighborhood, she said. Just because I live in a neighbor hood means I cant represent the people in my neighborhood because I own property there? That would be like Van not being able to vote on any of the redevelopment that we have on Walnut Street because he owns property there. Lewis then went on to further push her point that she shouldnt have to recuse herself by citing that the realtor who sold the properties, Rosalind Arnold, being the wife of the city attorney and business part ner of Royal. I realize this is a small town and it gets complicated, she said. But Im ask ing myself, Why am I recusing myself? I mean, the whole thing is complicated. I would prefer, even though Jim is probably completely right, I would prefer an opinion from a different legal person. Royal responded by asking her to re cuse herself not only because she owns property near the lot in question, but be cause at the last meeting she said that she personally believed that she might see a decrease in her property values because of this. Royal, who recuses himself from at least one agenda item at most meetings, said that recusal is only necessary for a person who stands to gain or lose nan cially based on the outcome of a vote. Following more back and forth between Lewis and Royal, with Arnold, again, cit ing his conversations with outside counsel about the issue in response to Lewis re quest for a second legal opinion. Eventually, newly-appointed Vice May or Steven Kelley spoke up in support of the staff report, saying that it would be irre sponsible to deny Santorsola from building before moving on to comments on the fu ture of land use in the growing city. Theres not any new land, obviously, but theres new interest, and more and more interest, Kelley said. Were going to see more of this where theres nothing to buy, but people are realizing they have multiple lots within a piece of property here. Members of council started moving to ward the vote with Lewis still mulling over whether or not to recuse herself from the vote. The thing that concerns me about re cusing myself is I dont want to set a prece dence, she said. Think about that, if you live in a neighborhood, every time you vote you may increase or decrease your prop erty values. I thought thats why we were elected. Arnold said the situation she described would be conjecture where the person vot ing wouldnt have a specic interest in is sues that may or may not change property values. In this case, Lewis had, at the last meeting, expressed specic interest that she thought this would lower property val ues if passed. Well, I have a pretty good idea of where this vote is going anyway so Im just going to recuse myself, Lewis said. After she had made her decision the vote was taken and passed 4-0.

Register First Assembly Fleming Island Faith Walk Revised minimum levels plan will help lakes Brooklyn and Geneva PALATKA The St. Johns River Water Management District Governing Board authorized staff to initiate the rulemak ing process to revise the existing mini mum ows and levels for lakes Brooklyn and Geneva near Keystone Heights. The board also approved moving for ward with development of any required recovery or prevention strategies neces sary for the lakes to achieve the revised water levels. The MFL report for lakes Brooklyn and Geneva is currently under going the peer review process and the nal peer-reviewed MFL report will be available in June. A public workshop to address draft revised MFLs and any required recovery or prevention strategies for lakes Brook lyn and Geneva is scheduled for 5-7 p.m., July 26, at district headquarters at 4049 Reid St. in Palatka. Minimum levels for lakes Brooklyn and Geneva were adopted in January 1996. Those MFLs were based on a methodology designed to maintain the location of existing stable wetlands and organic soils. However, stable wetlands and organic soils do not exist at these sandhill lakes. A reevaluation is neces sary to ensure that appropriate, protec tive minimum levels are developed. When a water body or watercourse currently does not or is anticipated to not meet a proposed MFL, the district is required to develop recovery or preven tion strategies for adoption in conjunc tion with the proposed MFL.

By adding a Cardiology Fellow ship Program, the hospital will bring fu ture cardiologists to the area to further their medical training. The new program is designed to pre pare the physicians also known as fellows for academic or clinical prac tice in general cardiology or a subspe cialty. The fellowship program follows a specialty training program known as a residency program. During their time at Orange Park Medical Center, fellows will have the benet of instruction and men torship of cardiologists that specialize in all areas of adult cardiology. Orange Park Medical Center is a growing academ ic center, said Dr. Andrea DeNeen, a cardiologist who runs the Cardiol ogy Fellowship Program. Given our high volume of diverse cardiac pa tients and excellent outcomes, it was a natural next step to add cardiovascular training. Orange Park Medical Center is the only Comprehensive Stroke Center in Clay County. Having this new group in our facility will not only give them great experience and bring Orange Park Medical Center to the next level for heart care, it will help contribute to the nations effort to increase the number of well-trained car diovascular specialists. Orange Park Medical Centers will accept new fellows each year with their rst class starting July 1. The program lasts 3 years. OPMC currently has 68 residents in its graduate program with an additional 41 starting in July. The program includes family medicine, internal medicine, der matology, a transitional year program which focuses on subspecialties, psychi atry and cardiology.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis sion and partners are sponsoring an Air Potato Challenge to distribute air potato leaf beetles to people trying to get rid of invasive air potato vines on their prop Community Briefs erty. Air potato leaf beetles will be handed out to people at two free upcoming events. The rst is May 18 in Leon County from 9 a.m. to noon at the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Center for Vi ticulture and Small Fruit Research, 6505 Mahan Dr. in Tallahassee. The second event is June 6 in Bay County from 9 a.m. to noon at the Univer sity of Florida/Institute of Food and Agri cultural Sciences Extension Ofce, 2728 E. 14th St. in Panama City. This event will end with an afternoon talk and workshop. Air potato leaf beetles are being used in Florida as a safe natural bio-control that helps us combat the invasive air potato vine. This nonnative vine can grow up to 8 inches a day and up to 70 feet in length, crowding out or killing native vegetation, said Matt Phillips, who leads the FWCs invasive plants section. Air potato leaf beetles are small, colorful and harmless to us and other plants, but they have aggres sive appetites when it comes to eating air No Charge Paid in full W hen preaching on Mothers Day, I have several times used the story titled No Charge. It is not new and certainly not original. I heard it years ago and I have always remem bered it. I have been asked several times by members of my congregation to provide them copies of this story. So, I thought it might be a blessing to you. The story is as though a mother wrote it. My little boy came into the kitchen this evening while I was xing supper. And he handed me a piece of paper hed been writing on. It was a bill for his services. This is what it said: For mowing the grass, $5. For making my own bed this week, $1. For going to the store $.50. For playing with baby brother while you went shopping, $.25. For taking out the trash, $1. For getting a good report card, $5. For raking the yard, $2. I picked up the paper, and turning it over, this is what I wrote: For the nine months I carried you, growing inside me, No charge. For the nights I sat up with you, doc tored you, prayed for you, No charge. For the time and the tears, and the cost through the years, No charge. For the nights lled with dread, and the worries ahead, No charge. For advice and the knowledge, and the cost of your college, No charge. For the toys, food and clothes, and for wiping your nose, No charge. Son, when you add it all up, the full cost of my love is No charge. When he nished reading, he had great big tears in his eyes. And he looked up at me and he said, Mama, I sure do love you. Then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote, Paid In Full. What an illustration of our Saviors love for us! The cost of our salvation is paid in full! www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org Andrea DeNeen Air potato leaf beetles SEE BRIEFS, 13

People who attend Air Potato Challenge events should bring a sample of air potato vine from their yard or land, so its identi cation can be veried by biologists. If they do have the vine, people will receive a con tainer of 10 to 100 air potato leaf beetles to take home and release on their property. The events are informal, and people are invited to come and go throughout the morning. People are asked to pre-register for the events at http://blogs.ifas.u.edu/ stlucieco/2018/04/04/2018-air-potatochallenge-days/. Beetles also will be avail able to people who attend and have not pre-registered. The Air Potato Challenge is sponsored by the FWC and partners, including UF/ IFAS, FAMU Center for Biological Control, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and U.S. Department of Agriculture. The benecial beetles are reared at FDACS Division of Plant Indus trys biological control facilities in Gaines ville. FWC is also accommodating those who cant attend an Air Potato Challenge event. Sign up online at http://bcrcl.ifas. ufl.edu/airpotatofiles/airpotatoforms. shtml. Air potato is one of Floridas most problematic invasive plants. The air po tato leaf beetle (Lilioceris cheni) is bright red, about the size of your little nger nail, and has a big appetite only for the invasive air potato plant whose vines can completely consume natural areas, smothering other plants and degrading native habitat. Researchers have shown that air potato leaf beetles are host-spe cic to air potato vines and will not feed on other plants. The beetles chew through air potato leaves, leaving them riddled with holes. Air potato leaf beetles were discov ered in Nepal and China by scientists from the USDAs Invasive Plant Research Laboratory in Fort Lauderdale, and were rst released in Florida as a biological control agent in 2011.

Cannabis Dennis Lance Swann, 65, Green Cove Springs, FTA-Transfer of Ownership By Chase Carle For Clay Today GREEN COVE SPRINGS A three-woman, three-man jury handed down a guilty ver dict last week in the trial of Tomy Lee Byrd, 48, of Orange Park after hearing closing arguments last Wednesday. Byrd is charged with two counts of second-degree at tempted murder of a law enforcement ofcer, burglary and battery on a reght er. The charges stem from a July 2016 incident where Byrd allegedly stole items from the Walmart at 899 Blanding Blvd. He was stopped by Clay County Sheriffs Department in his vehicle where he attempted to ee. During the get away attempt, Byrd struck Detective Rob ert Baltean with his Dodge Ram truck and ran over Deputy David Vallers legs. Prior to closing arguments, Circuit Court Judge Michael Sharrit spoke to the attorneys and Byrd without the jury pres ent. When Sharrit asked Byrd if there was any evidence that he wished had been shown that had not been, Byrd said yes. Byrd said he wished the photo of Deputy Vallers leg had been shown because the photo showed no scarring or bruising to the leg. When Sharrit questioned the relevance of the photo, Byrd said that he believed that the photo shows that the deputy wasnt as hurt as it was being made out to be. Byrd even went so far as to seemingly mock the deputys screams that had been heard on recorded audio earlier in the trial. He said the jury was allowed to hear the screams but never saw the photos that showed that it wasnt as bad as theyre trying to make it seem. After a recess to confer with Byrd, the defense ultimately agreed not to have the photo used as evidence. They told Byrd that the extent of injury had no bearing on the charges he was facing and that they could argue his case without the photo. State attorneys Hector Murcia and Jes sica Narducci went back over the evidence as well as quotes from the ofcers and wit nesses in their closing statements. For the charge of robbery, Narducci emphasized the use of force and threats by Byrd while leaving the store. She stated that both video evidence and witness testi mony established those facts. She moved on to the charge of battery of a reghter. She stated that reghter Justin Dean was in full uniform and had ar rived to the scene in a retruck which she argued meant there was no chance Byrd was unaware that Dean was a reghter. The most serious charges were saved for last. Narducci insisted that Byrds actions proved ill-will, hatred or evil intent to wards the ofcers, a key component of the charges of attempted second-degree mur der. Narducci said that Byrd could hear the screams of Deputy Valler as his legs were run over, yet still didnt stop the truck. She repeated what Byrd said to Detective Bal tean as Baltean attempted to gain control of the vehicle as further proof of Byrds in tent. Youre gonna have to kill me, just kill me. I ran over a cop, just kill me, Narduc ci read quoting Byrd the day of the robbery. Defense attorney Mark Wright began his closing statements by saying that Byrd isnt completely innocent, but he is over charged. He urged the jury to consider lesser charges. Hold him accountable, but hold him accountable for what he actually did, said Wright. Wright refuted the States case for rob bery, saying that no threats or physical violence occurred and that the video sup ports that. He argued that Byrd was guilty of grand theft, not robbery. The more serious charges were next and Wright told the jury that he simply wanted justice. His actions are not excusable. Im not asking you to like Mr. Byrd. Im asking you to uphold the law, said Wright. Wright argued that Byrd was resist ing arrest, kicking and ghting everyone. Which means that he did not intention ally target Justin Dean and had no way of knowing Dean was a reghter. The denition of attempted second-de gree murder has two parts. The rst part is that the defendant intentionally did an act which would have caused the death of the victim ex cept someone or something prevented his death. The second part is the intentional act is known by the average person to be dan gerous and the act itself is done from an evil heart with no care for human life. Wright argued that neither of those parts applies to Byrds actions. Wright said that Byrd was attempting to ee and turned the vehicle away from ofcers and that there was no evidence of hatred, spite, evil intent or ill will. Wright said that Detective Balteans ac tions of grabbing the wheel of the vehicle led to the ofcers being in harms way, not Byrds actions. Wright stated that Byrd is guilty of grand theft, resisting a merchant, eeing ofcers, resisting an ofcer with violence and battery. He ended his closing state ments by saying that while Byrd was guilty of those things, he was not guilty of at tempted second-degree murder. No date has yet been set for sentencing.

The Moringa tree (Moringa ole ifera), also known as the miracle tree or drumstick tree, is a native of eastern In dia but has become widespread through many tropical areas. It is also becoming increasingly popular throughout Florida as much of the tree can be eaten and its oils can even be extracted from its seeds. However, even with the benets of the tree, it should be avoided at all costs in our state as it can be very invasive. Identifying Moringa Moringa is a small tree, growing quick ly to around 25 feet tall and is often mis taken for a legume due to its seed pods. The leaves are fern like and deciduous, ranging from 9-24 inches long on droop ing branches. The tree also bears white fragrant ower in loose bunches along the center of the leaves. Why is it harmful? Moringa is very easily grown from seed or cuttings, which is one of the reasons why is has been listed by the University of Flor ida/IFAS Assessment of Non-Native Plants in Floridas Natural areas as invasive and it should be avoided throughout the state. The tree is highly adaptable to the differ ent climates throughout our state, grows in a variety of soils, and the high amount of seeds could be easily spread by wind and water. With these characteristics, it is highly likely it will spread to and survive in our natural areas, where it could outcompete native plants and upset our ecosystems. In short, do not plant this tree in your yard. Why is it Popular? Even with its invasive nature, Moringa has been gaining popularity due to its use fulness and signicance in the cuisine of some Asian cultures. Some also tout medi cal uses of the plant, but none of these health benets have been fully proven by scientic study and more research is need ed on potential benets from the plant. However, even with some unique uses, this tree could still be attributed to the de struction of our natural areas as an inva sive species and its cultivation in Florida should be avoided completely.

Copies of the Towns September 30, 2017 Audited Financial Statements are available for Inspection in the oce of the Town Clerk, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm By Randy Lefko Sports Editor JACKSONVILLE Clay senior pitcher Con ner Solomon punched out 11 strikeouts to lead the Blue Devils to a 5-1 region playoff win over Stanton Prep May 8. Conner Solomons performance was impressive, but honestly its more of the same all year, said Clay coach Josh Pers inger, who guided the Blue Devils to the region nal last year where Mosley won a 3-0 decision. When Conner is on, he is a three-pitch pitcher and him and Gus Schlosser, former Atlanta Braves reliever and our pitching coach, work really well together. I stay out of their way and let them work. Clay (23-6) advances to play at Ponte Vedra (15-12) Tues., May 15 in the fourth meeting for the two schools. As far as Ponte Vedra, this will be our seventh matchup in two years, said Pers inger. There arent a lot of secrets on ei ther side. I see a heavyweight title match set for Tuesday. Last man standing earns a trip to the Panhandle for a shot at the Regional Title. Clay defeated Ponte Vedra twice in regular season play; 4-1 and 8-4, but the Sharks turned the tables with a 6-4 dis trict championship win on May 3. In the district title game with Solomon on the mound for six innings, Ponte Vedra built a 5-1 lead in the second inning with Clay pushing two in the fourth and one in the seventh in a comeba We showed ght in the district cham pionship after their ve-run second in ning, but missed some opportunities, said Persinger. I said all along that Ponte Vedra would be a tough team due to their college-level pitching staff and major col lege commits they have peppered through the lineup. Regular season records are out the door and now its win or go home. In the other region 1-6A seminal, West Florida (18-9) will host Mosley High (21-5). Mosley beat Clay 3-0 in last years region 1-6A nal before losing to eventual 5A champion Archbishop McCarthy in the state seminal. Despite Solomons command from the mound, Stanton was able to hold a 1-1 tie with the Blue Devils with Stanton getting their lone run in the third off a single and error that put baserunners at second and third. A yball deep to centereld scored one run. We had a good approach against Stan tons lefty, said Persinger. We squared some balls up early, but they just didnt nd the hole. I commend our guys for keeping with the plan and knocking on the door until it nally broke through. In the following inning, Solomon dou bled after a ground out to Josh Lemen to set up a Andy Yarbrough single that scored Blake Parker from third, pinch baserun ning for Solomon. The score stuck at 1-1 until the fth when a strikeout to Dylan Faulkner was followed by singles to Kevin Jackson and Nick Barrie and an intentional walk to purposely load the bases for the Stanton defense. popped a perfect punt to the pitchers mound that scored Jackson in the midst of the ineld chaos. Solomon added one more run with a sacrice y to left eld to score Barrie be fore Chase Holman doubled in Spence and Lemen. From there, Solomon nished the game with seven of his 11 strikeouts in the nal two and a half innings to end the game.

The region playoff win was Fleming Is lands rst foray into the second round of the state playoffs. Ever since we beat Clay in the early part of the season, we have been play ing not paying attention to records, said senior captain Calab Lanoux, after his sterling seven innings of pitching with ve strikeouts that fueled the Lincoln win. Clay was kind of the restart, then we beat Pensacola Catholic, then Fletcher and we just keep poking along. The district title created a whole new season. Fleming Island advanced to play Tues., May 15 at Tallahassee Chiles, a 4-2 win ner over Lincoln for the district 1-8A title and a 3-0 region winner over Atlan tic Coast, in the region seminal. Chiles owns a 7-4 win over Fleming Island from March 2.

By Randy Lefko Sports Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGS With junior Spencer LeSage showing top playmaking abilities as the starting quarterback for the Clay High football team, it may leave soph omore T.K. Kocak as the secret weapon as both signal callers showed off similiar tendencies during a Blue Devils intrasquad scrimmage May 11 at Clay High. This is end of third week, day 15 with ve left, and I think Spencer is doing a good job at quarterback, said Clay coach Josh ua Hoekstra. The O-Line with fullback Ricky Bernabeu are mostly returners and have continued to get better. In the scrimmage, with Hoekstra limit ing LeSage on the eld and allowing Kocak more time behind center, Kocak showed off some downeld breakaway speed with a 50-plus yard quarterback option that went the distance for a score. LeSage mainly gave off handoffs to backs Wilguens Dorvi lus, who caught a long touchdown pass for a score that was nullied by a penalty, and Dallane Brown with both pounding behind the offensive line of Jordan Collins, Mike Carns, Ross Doan and senior Sebastian Nelson, all who t the Blue Devil mold of big, mobile bashers up front. Add Berna beu out of the backeld and Clays puts six guys in the defenses face to contend with while the backeld revs up. One guy in the backeld that could be a big factor in the offense is wrestler Abbott Taylor. Hes not a breaker, but he can be a constant 10 yard guy in the clutch, said Hoekstra. Hes strong, in shape and is a just physical kid. He needs to be the ham mer with the other two the breakers. On the defense, returners Cody Devore and Kenny Johnson impose a good look on the corners with newcomer Jeremy Simms catching Hoekstras eye. The defensive line is basically brand new with Cody Devore and Kenny Johnson key returners at the ends, said Hoekstra. Well struggle in the beginning.

Defending is Sincere Gilbert. Clay travels to Matanzas High on May 18 for their spring game. Linebackers include Mason Adams, the nal Adams brother with Mike Adams a mainstay now at Bethel University with Clay teammate Jeremy Bilodeaux, and Cain Creery, who though not imposingly big, has a strong nose for the ball. Mike Adams was on the sidelines of Fridays scrimmage. One of Clays rst scores was a long kickoff returned for a score from Derek Holt, who returns from an injury last year and looks like a good candidate to run kicks back. On the outside, receivers Christian Sweat and Jared Glisson both are six foot ers with rangy speed and long reaches. Sweat converted a slant for a 40 yard gain last week, but fumbled away a big gain in Fridays scrimmage.

Saying that, the defense were the stars of the night as they rushed and took down starting quarterback Dean Hyams at least 10 times. Jake Libretto was coming off the end pretty fast said Springs.Once the O-line started chipping them and slowing them down a bit, he was able to get his foot in the ground and complete the passes. The offensive line has work to do, or the defensive front is just that powerful. I still cant judge my defense yet be cause our O-line is young, theyre new, they have a lot of work to do, said Springs. I cant judge them yet, but I can say they looked better today than they have in prac tice.Sothey did surprise me. Time and again, the line broke through and were in Hyams face before he could do anything with the ball.Hyams was stopped for loss at least ve times while trying to scramble out.Later, as Hyams was put into pressure situations, he responded, stepped up and connected. In the backeld, Springs showed off several weapons, led by Dewayne Mc Bride.McBride broke away over and over for short yardage, but then found a seam and took off for several rst-down worthy gains.McBride was backed by Darnell Deas Jr. who showed ability to get short yardage and nd holes. Deas can pound it too.He showed me some good moves tonight, said Springs. Also, of note was Middleburg transfer Andrew Thomas who had a break away run for touchdown late in the scrimmage. Andrew Thomas is the fastest on the team.He can y, said Springs.Right now, we have him on defense, starting.But as Eagles from page 20 Fleming Island tailback Dewayne McBride tries to break away for more yards in Golden Eagles scrimmage on May 11. the season progresses, he may see more and more carries. Andrew is our homerun hitter. Thomas 35-plus yard run dusted the defense and showed his ability to scram ble for long gains. Also, in the backeld showing some toughness was Byran Maddox. Maddox rounds out my backeld that gives me four good backs that can pound the rock and can take it to the house. The game had a full compliment of of cials and Springs used the opportunity to run a full game day tempo, had penalties called, and readied the team for Friday nights home action against Flagler Palm Coast.

Cooper City (23-5 and region nals loser to St. Thomas Aquinas last year) advanced with a 10-0 win over Mater Dei Charter, 15-0 over Nova in four innings and 2-1 over St. Thomas Aquinas in the region nal. Oakleaf beat St. Thomas Aquinas 10-0 in the state semi nal last year en route to beating Wellington 6-1 for the Class 8A title. Junior pitcher Madyson Davis likes the momentum of the past three games as the Lady Knights seem to be peaking with their bats at the right time. Honestly, I feel like God is with us,Ž said Davis, who got seventh inning relief from Cambria Arturo who ended the game with two strikeouts and a yball. Luckily, I think today we had all four parts of our game clicking; running, hitting, defense and pitching. I think Cambria and myself offer a pretty formidable pitching duo.Ž Against East Ridge, Agurkis, at catcher and one of the bomb hitters for the powerpacked lineup of Rebecca Koskey, Baylee Goddard and Kaylee Lambrecht that exploded in the rst inning for three runs off a single from Katie Kistler, a single to center eld from Lambrecht and a walk to Koskey that gave the Lady Knights two shots to score a bucket of runs with Goddard up Knights from page 17 to bat and Agurkis to follow. I was due,Ž said Agurkis, who planted a run-scoring bunt in dramatic fashion in Oakleafs 3-2 district semi nal win over Fleming Island to keep the Oakleaf train on the tracks two weeks prior. I was thinking in my head, I really want to hit the ball and tonight was going to be my night. Finally.Ž Goddard hit a elders choice grounder to shortstop that got Kistler out at home on the force play to set up one of the more dramatic three run doubles in softball lore with Agurkis smashing a ball to the center eld fence that got Lambrecht home rst with Koskey and Goddard in close pursuit around third base and Agurkis sprinting hard off second base. With all three girls on full steam running and the ball getting back to home plate just after Koskey scored, East Ridge had a series of confused throws that forced Goddard back toward third, Agurkis reversing and heading back to second where an errant throw turned Goddard back to home plate and a run and Agurkis winding up at second base when the dust settled. Oakleaf, of course, was up 3-0. East Ridge responded with a double off pitcher Madi Davis to open the inning and a run scored off a singled from Reese Moss to left eld. With East Ridge gaining some momentum with a walk putting two baserunners in play, a popped up bunt was caught on the y by Agurkis in one of the bigger plays of the night to squash a scoring opportunity before Lambrecht corraled a ri ed shot to the shortstop hole and got the nal out at third base. She (Agurkis) was tremendous behind the plate,Ž said Thompson. She was quick and trying to make opportunities.Ž Oakleaf looked to add more runs in the second inning with a bases loaded scenario coming from a walk, an error on a Kistler whistler to shortstop and a walk to Koskey, but Goddard hit a y ball to right eld to leave the runners stranded. Oakleaf was able to chip in some insurance runs in the third with Pacetti singling in one on a elders choice grounder to put the score at 4-1 and Agurkis blasting another double in the fourth to score Goddard from second who sliced a shot past third base. Up 5-1, Davis took control of the mound to shut down the East Ridge offense while Thompson put in some reserve players for some championship game time. In the sixth, the Oakleaf bats erupted for four more runs with top of the lineup; Kistler opening with a walk, Lambrecht and Koskey singling with Koskeys hit scoring both teammate who were positioned at second and third after steals. When we get the insurance runs, I want them to start having fun,Ž said Thompson. When we get a decent lead, I think we have the pitching to hold teams at bay.ŽA wicked line drive from Goddard over third base put Koskey at third before Agurkis blasted a a two-run single for the nal runs.

With the score locked at 0-0 in the fourth, Clay opened with pop outs to Kaitly Kumpf and Charlotte DeNapoli as pitching was controlling the game to that point. Morgan (Clay pitcher Morgan Crutch er) took command of this game and has been our leader from the mound, said Lewis. She s very tough to rattle out there when things get tight. Crutcher nished with ve strikeouts Devils from page 17 in seven innings of pitching with just four hits. From there, Marianne McDonald opened the door with a pitch hitting here that was followed by Stones monster dou ble to left eld. I wanted to get more runners on base, but Haley crushed the ball and we got the one, said Lewis. Clay had hit a nerve with the lone run with Sydney Lewis singling and Delaney Alnson walking to set up a back-to-back run scoring hits from Paolo Jorge-Silva and Kylee Stacy to punch in four more runs. Paolo has been hot in the batters box lately and has come up big not just with her bat, but with some great outeld play, said Lewis. She has become an exciting player to watch. In the sixth, Crutcher orchestrated a key double play ball off a West Florida bunt attempt with baserunners in place. Clay got one nal shot at runs in the sixth with a single to Ali Sarman and a double to Kumpf with DeNapoli loading the bases getting hit by a pitch, but McDonald struck out to end the inning. West Floridas lone run came in the seventh with two singles and a bunt with Lewis making a heads up play at rst to tag out a West Florida baserunner. in the third inning to keep the Indians with in a run in the nal innings. She (Story) has always been clutch in big situations never a doubt in my mind she was going to do something great, said Marquart. The win puts the Lady Indians into the Final Four in Class 5A for a Saturday seminal match against West Nassau with an 8:35 a.m. rst pitch. Keystone Heights has two previous Final Four appearances; 1995 with Mike Horn-lost 13-5 to John Carroll in state seminals (3A) and 2012 with Belinda Phillips-lost 1-0 to Florida High in state seminals (4A). I think its great that we both get to ex perience this, said Marquart. I know they are a great team and will be an exciting game. Keystone Heights (20-10) advanced with region playoff wins over Eustis (5-3), Santa Fe (4-1) and Hernando County (3-2). It denitely has been nerve wracking but in a good way, said Marquart. The adrenaline and excitement is what makes this game great. I have so much condence in this team and right now they believe so much in each other they are refuse to lose. West Nassau (22-6) advanced after wins over Suwannee (7-2), Baker County (8-2, region nalist in 2017) and Marianna (2-0). In the other Final Four contest, Hardee (20-12, lost to Eustis in state seminal in 2017) will face Coral Spring Charter (282, defending 5A champions over Eustis) at Indians from page 17 9:50 a.m., also on Sat., May 18. Megan Moncrief started on the mound for Keystone Heights, but was relieved by Daelynn Eatmon in the fourth. Eatmon dominated the Hernando batting lineup with six strikeouts in the nal four innings to keep the game within a run for the op portunistic Indians offense. Keystone Heights was able to get bas erunners in place in the early innings with Story singling in the rst inning at bats and Savannah Channell and Makayla Smith singling in the second, but no runs were scored. Hernando struck rst with a solo homer in the third that was followed by a double to rock Moncrief on the mound. A run scoring single scored the second Hernando run before Moncrief retrieved a grounder for the nal out of the second. Keystone Heights answered quickly with Ashleigh Jennings bunting on to rst and Ashton Ludwig moving Jennings on her own bunt to set up Storys two run shot to left eld that scored Jennings. Two strike outs ended the inning, but kept the Indians within striking distance. That rst run that Story scored I be lieve kept us in it, said Marquart. I just told them to keep grinding and its not over yet. Eatmon entered the game in the fourth and immediately stymied the home crowd with three strike outs to end the inning after a walk and error put baserunners in play. Eatmon added two strikeouts and a grounder in the sixth to keep Hernando at bay and also to create a tense seventh in ning for the Indians. She did exactly what she needed to do keep them off the bases, said Marquart. In the seventh, Lexi Northway doubled to left eld and Jennings reached with speed to rst on a ground ball to set up Storys game winner. Keystone Heights has used the eet feet of baserunners like Ashton Ludwig, pictured, to pressure defenses into eld errors.

Harder than I thought, Simpson said, who shot a one over par 73 in the nal round that kept his lead in tact while fend ing off challenges as close as four strokes for the nal round. I kept reminding my self today that the only thing that matters is the next shot. Its easy to do on Thurs day; its a lot harder to do today. Simpson, 32, nished with a total score of 270, 18 under par, with three golfers be hind him at 14-under; Charl Schwartzel of South Africa, Jimmy Walker of Oklahoma and Xander Schauffele, three hardly recog nizable names, nonetheless, with previous winner Jason Day the closest at a 13-under 275. Not making the Friday night cut were names like Rory McIlroy, Ricky Fowler, Phil Mickelson and while 2017 champion Si Woo Kim nished tied for 63 with a 285 total with just one round better than par. I feel like this is my rst win, like Simpson crushes round three to Players title the last one in Greenville in 2011, said Simpson, previously ranked 41st. I never doubted myself, but that s a long time; four years, to go without a win. To come here against this eld and put up the numbers on the rst three rounds; Im so happy. In one of the more epic comeback at tempts to steal Simpsons enormous lead, Tiger Woods shocked the eld with a 14-under run on the rst 12 holes as the Woods crowds to thousands for a classic showdown at the historic 17th hole only to have Woods sink his tee shot short and in the lake. Woods went out in 32 and got to 14-under with his birdie at the 12th hole. He was in second, breathing down the neck of the leader Simpson I hit it so good, Woods said. I had control of it from tee to green; I made some putts; I felt good on basically every facet of the game, and its weird; not to really mishit a shot today and only shoot 3-under par is just weird, because I played much better than that. Woods would struggle through the nal ve holes at 4-over to sink to 11th place with a 69; four shots off Simpson torrid pace. Simpson earned $1.98 million for his win with the trio in second taking home $821,333 apiece. Past champion Sergio Garcia, in 70th place, earned $22,000. STAFF PHOTOS BY RANDY LEFKO The Players Championships champion Webb Simpson walks past Champions crystal trophy to ward rst hole tee with a seven stroke lead. Simpson maintained his lead for a four-stroke win. Two-time Players champion Tiger Woods is in unfamiliar territory on the penalty box of the 17th hole as his second place run up in the nal round crumbled around a misplayed 17th hole tee that wound up in the lake in front of the green. Woods nished 11th.

Maddi was a spirited and funny girl as well as a powerful runner, said Fleming Island coach Chris Otero, as he introduced Michelle Kahlig, Maddis mother, prior to the Maddi Mile. She will be missed. For Kahlig, the ceremonial mile offered a bit of a surprise. I was having people walk up to me and saying they heard of Maddi and wanted to show support at the run, said Kahlig. It was overwhelming how many people came out. Overall winner was Fleming Island High freshman Kameron Wallizada with a time of 17 minutes, 11 seconds ahead of Fleming Island High senior Aidan Am stutz at 18:07. John Webb, 47, was third in 18:21. For the women, Fleming Island veteran runner Sharon Hawley, 31, was top female in 20:41 for 11th overall. Erika Olson, 24, was second female at 21:29 with Green Cove Springs Junior High eighth grader Lauren Schaudel third female at 21:44. The race was staged at Fleming Island High by 1st Place Sports of Jacksonville with results on the 1st Place Sports web site.
