Former 10-year CCSO veteran Mark Alan Andrews, 42, was drinking alone at the American Le gion Lodge in Key stone Heights on December 31, 2017 before he left and hit another vehicle on the road. Accord ing to the police report, the trafc crash occurred at 1:10 a.m. when Andrews, who was driving an unmarked police vehicle, abruptly pulled out into a trafc lane and struck the passenger side of a vehicle pass ing by. The driver of the vehicle Andrews struck, Eliza Taylor Chapple, of Valdosta, Georgia, immediately stopped her car and got out, but Andrews ed the scene. At the time, Chapple was unable to identify that the driver was Andrews. The crash took place on West Walker Drive near Wendys restaurant. When Andrews ed, Chapple attempted to follow him but, she was unable to catch up and returned to the scene of the acci dent. About six hours later, a call for ser vice came into the CCSO Communications unit.

Community leaders welcomed her to her new role recently. See story on page 7. By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS An advisory opinion issued by the Florida Department of State could affect more than 3,000 Clay County registered voters. The opinion, handed down by Elections Director Maria Matthews, was requested by Clay County Super visor of Elections Chris Chambless and delves into the specics of mail forwarding services in regards to who can and cannot le gally register to vote in a county within the state. We were seeing people that had done this all online and were never physically here, Chambless said. I asked, I think it was four or ve very specic questions, because there was no specic case and law. The opinion states that a person who uses a mail forwarding service to establish residency in a county, but has no residen tial address there, is not a legal resident of the county and that is not sufcient to establish residency for voter registration. Following the opinion, Chambless met with Douglas Moody and Scott Loehr who own St Brendans Isle Inc., a mail forward ing service based in Green Cove Springs and informed them that he would no longer allow their new clients to register to vote in Clay County unless they had previously lived in the county prior to signing up for their service, based on the new opinion from Matthews. Soon after this meeting, Moody penned a letter to County Commis sioner Mike Cella, whose district covers the Green Cove Springs area, as a plea for help.

We have learned that the other counties, where our larger competitors exist, will not be following this new advisory opinion as they believe the opinion contradicts previous opinions issued by the Division of Elections. This creates a serious competitive disadvan tage which will likely lead to the closure of St Brendans Isle in the not too distant future. In the letter Moody cites 3,000 current customers of their business that could po tentially be affected. Chambless said those people will not be automatically taken from the voter rolls, but their eligibility will be determined as it applies to the language in the new opinion. If youre legally available to the voter registration roll then we need to make sure youre on it, Chambless said. Were going to take the time to investigate manually each and every record, and then based upon the information that they present [on a questionnaire], were going to make a de termination on eligibility. If youre not eli gible to be on the rolls then were going to take necessary steps to remove you from the rolls, however if you are eligible to be on rolls were going to update your voter record and everything is ne. Previous opinions stated that legal res idence, in regards to voter registration, is a place where someone truly intends to reside and has made overt acts that dem onstrate that intention. Moody said they encourage their clients to establish resi dency through a list of 14 of these overt acts that were listed in the letter. Other opinions dating back decades, cite legal residency as simply being the place where someone receives messages. However, Chambless pointed out that these opinions are answers to different questions than the ones he had asked that resulted in the June 19 opinion from the state. Moody listed four of their competitors, two of which are located in Okaloosa Coun ty where Paul Lux serves as supervisor of elections. Lux said that he is not aware of any registered voters in his county that would be affected by the new opinion. I did not see anything in the opinion that was immediately contrary to our own procedures, Lux said. We require our voters to have a primary physical pres ence and an intention to return. Because we have a large military presence, we can not treat the RV people differently than the military people. If you have a Florida drivers license, you didnt get it from Italy, so at one point you must have applied within the state of Florida, which means you have had a pri mary physical presence and intent to re turn. Technically this interpretation does fol low the order, which species that voters cannot register without having a past or present physical presence and intent to establish permanent residency, meaning that a person who comes into the county, establishes residency, and intends to, at some point, return to that county can reg ister to vote. However, if they have not ever had their primary residence in the county, it is still clear that they are not a legal voter. What we were seeing is that people would become customers of St Brendans Isle electronically, then le a Declaration of Domicile electronically, then come here and register a boat or vehicle and then reg istered to vote, Chambless said. Where is the residency there? How does that tie you to the community? The 2018 order is the only one that specically mentions mail forwarding ser vices, as Chambless requested specicity regarding this type of situation, and is the most recent of the past orders in the books. Lux said he isnt sure if that supersedes past rulings, but regardless his interpreta tion of the new order has not changed the practices in Okaloosa County. The advisory opinion has the effect of law, its binding upon me, Chambless said. As the supervisor of elections, I took an oath to uphold the laws. The citizens of Clay County have an expectation that their supervisor of elections is going to ensure that the voting rolls are as accurate as they can be. Moody and Loehr declined comment on this story and referred questions to their attorney. By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer FLEMING ISLAND Despite a recommen dation for approval for the school boards recent personnel consent agenda, one school board member raised questions about the reappointment of an Oakleaf High teacher. Usually, the personnel consent agenda is voted on and passed in one motion, how ever, at the June 28 school board meet ing, board mem ber Janice Kerekes questioned the teachers reappoint ment and asked if that teacher was us ing paid leave from the district to con duct business from an elected position he currently holds. What Im addressing is...a county com missioner who is using leave time for his commission job, Kerekes said. So, last year at this time, we disciplined an em ployee who used leave time for a second job and we suspended him for eight days without pay, and I feel like this is our policy on how we handle this issue so we should be consistent across the board with every one, Kerekes said she asked for the item to be pulled for discussion because she was not comfortable reappointing this teacher, at least until Superintendent Addison Da vis had completed his investigation of this faculty member. Im personally not comfortable moving forward [despite the recommendation to do so by Davis]...while the superintendent is investigating, Kerekes said. She then asked how her fellow school board members felt on the subject, to which all of them responded that they wanted to move forward with Davis recommendation to reappoint the teacher. After some heated words between Ker ekes and school board member Betsy Con don, who said she felt Kerekes was way out of line, a motion was made to move forward with Davis recommendation. The school board voted 4-1, with Kerekes vot ing no. In other business: In her report, representative Betsy Reagor who represents the Clay County Education Association and the Clay County Educational Support Personnel Associa tion unions was grateful for the districts new A grade from the state. She also an nounced a new agreement on health insur ance. Basically, we increased the insurance contribution from about $248 to about $303 per pay period for the instruction al and non-instructional employees, so theyre going to receive about $90 a month additional if they take the insurance, Re agor said. According to Reagor, this has been nine years in the making. Its taken about nine years to get this increase on the insurance, Reagor said. This means that they will not receive as big of a hit to their insurance, because their insurance premiums are just sky rocketing, and some of our employees will actually see a decrease in the amount that they have to pay per pay period, and most of them will see a much smaller increase in that premium than they were expecting. Insurance has been a hot topic during school board meetings for years, and not only was that contract signed, the school board also voted to nalize their upcoming years property, casualty and active assail ant insurance program. During a June 26 school board workshop, representatives from Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. Insurance presented potential insurance program op tions for the 2018-19 school year. One of those options would see the school district continue its insurance pro gram of this past year with some changes to its auto and general liability self-insured retention and workers compensation. The former increases from $100,000 to $200,000 and the latter sees $250,000 in excess removed. These changes would re duce the insurance premiums in total by $58,000. The measure was approved by a 5-0 vote. Board member questions a teacher reappointment Janice Kerekes Its taken about nine years to get this increase on the insurance.

GRAND OPENING! By Chase Carle For Clay Today FLEMING ISLAND Its not difcult to tell that Cassidy, Jillian, and Corrina Laird are sisters. While not identical, the resemblance is clear enough to make the connection quickly. Similar to their ap pearance, their chosen career paths are not identical. While each of the sisters is pursuing a different specic aspect of the eld, all three are entering the world of engineering. Choosing to enter the engineering eld may not sound unusual, but the statistics show just how different three sisters entering that eld really is. A 2016 survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that women comprised 44.3 percent of full-time and salary workers. However, when it comes to the eld of architecture and engineering, the number drops to just 14 percent. That number makes the Laird sisters stand out that much more. Cassidy, 24, Jillian, 19, and Cor rina,17, are no strangers to standing out. In 2012, Cassidy tied for highest grade point average after graduating from Rid geview Highs International Baccalaureate Program. She went on to nish her under graduate degree in biosystems engineer ing with a 4.0 GPA and recently nished a masters degree. Both degrees are from Clemson University where she studied in the Honors College and was honored with From left, Corrina, Jillian and Cassidy Laird of Fleming Island smile for the camera after a recent interview. Although they have no family ties to the university, each one is attending except for Cassidy who recently graduated in May with a masters degree Clemson and majoring in some form of engineering. One family, three engineering students the Roger R. and Laura M. Yoerger Pre professional Engineer of the Year Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers while studying there. She was recently hired as a civilian contractor with the U.S. Air Force. A Fleming Island High AICE graduate and now a Clemson University student, Jillian is majoring in chemical engineering with a biomolecular concentration. She is also part of the Honors College heading into her junior year. Corrina recently graduated from the AICE program at Fleming Island High and will begin her studies at Clemson in the fall. She has received the National Merit Scholarship, the Clemson Merit Scholar ship and the Corporation Scholarship for National Merit from CSX. She will major in biomedical engineering. Oftentimes, there are stories like the Lairds, that usually involve parents push ing from behind, but that is not the case with the Lairds. Their mother Julie, an ofce manager, and their father, an assis tant vice president for sales and market ing, took a different approach. They knew we were bright kids but they never required us to get As or Bs, it was kind of just like do the best you can and were here, said Jillian. It was kind of an unspoken we want you to do your best and we wanted to make them proud so it just went from there. However, Corrina believes that parents and children played roles in their achieve ment. Thats where you get into the responsi bility on both parties. Maybe if the kids arent as dedicated naturally then their parents may have to enforce that more, said Corrina. But I think as far as we go, all you need is that encouragement and somebody thats got your back and is will ing to support you in whatever you want to do and if you have both levels of that then youre going to get somewhere. Cassidy agreed with her sister on that point and said that their family took that PHOTO PROVIDED BY CLEMSON UNIVERSITY While at Clemson University, Cassidy Laird of Fleming Island, studied in the Honors College and won the Roger R. and Laura M.

4 CLAY TODAY July 5, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Bob Holladay T here is a term in the Florida Admin istrative Procedure Act for when a state agency goes rogue and refuses to follow a legislative statute: an invalid exercise of delegated legislative authority. There are other terms for it, but I pre fer the plainest: aunting the law. If its a high-prole agency (no names, please), the legisla ture might respond by threatening to cut salaries. The ques tion is: What is it going to do about the Department of Edu cation? Since the begin ning of the summer, DOE has been vio lating Florida Stat ute 1007.25(4), the legislative language setting up a postsec ondary civic literacy requirement that passed as part of HB 7069 in 2017. DOE has been violating the statute by contracting with the Lou Frey Institute at the University of Central Florida to create a new bypass examination for students who dont want to take either the history or government coursework necessary to meet the new requirement. They cant do that. Florida Statute 1007.25(4) very plainly says that DOE must adopt in rule and the Board of Governors in regulation at least one existing assessment that measures the required course competencies The key word is existing. Existing when? How about when 7069 became law July 1, 2017? How do we know thats what the legisla ture meant? Because of the other language in Florida Statute 1007.25(4) mandating the creation of a statewide faculty commit tee to develop a new course in civic liter acy or revise an existing general education core course in American History or Ameri can Government to include civic literacy. Get it? Students can only meet the require ment by passing an existing assessment, but the statewide faculty committee could have created a new course if it wanted to (it hasnt so far). The language is very specic: new or existing coursework, an existing test. Eight months passed between the time HB 7069 became law and when the DOE rst offered Rule 6A-10.02413 implement ing it for colleges, and the Board of By Eric Cravey I ts unfortunate that I write these words, but crime is a fact of life. And, in our modern world, it seems that mass shootings are happen ing so often in our country now that its too easy to be come jaded when we hear news of yet another kill ing spree. I think, perhaps, Im not jaded but sim ply numbed by the events of last week. I should be more alive and on edge because this shooting was ex traordinarily different. This shooting hit home. Specically, Im talking about the June 28 shooting at The Capital Ga zette, the daily newspaper in Annapo lis, Maryland. Published reports tell us a man who reportedly had a grudge against the paper shot his way into the newsroom that Thursday afternoon. He killed four journalists, a sales assistant and injured two others. No. 1, it escapes me how someone can lose all ability to think clearly and allow anger to grab hold of their psyche to a point of complete self-destruction, much less kill someone. No. 2, journal ists are strong, dedicated people and we will not be shaken. Here, in my ofce, Ive had to tell other men that I will not be intimidated and Im sorry your son was arrested all the while explaining that its our jobs to report the truth both conversations my colleagues could hear with the door closed. Sometimes, however, that truth, or at least that version of it, may not be a tasty elixir to swallow by the time it hits the page. Covering crime is a daunting task. I will never forget the rst time I heard a judge sentence a person to Death Row. As he uttered the phrase, May God have mercy on your soul, my spine tingled and an unexplained heat rolled across my body. I once endured the reading of a victims impact statement by a father whose wife and three children were killed in a head-on collision by a drunk driver. I then sat and watched that same driver receive only a 10-year sentence for taking four lives. Its difcult to keep telling these stories and seeing these verdicts without wondering if the entire system is not broken. Every journalist in America felt the June 28 shooting at some level. If noth ing else, it should have publishers and news directors scratching their heads and asking if their organization has enough security in place to possibly curtail something like this from happen ing at their news organization. What that shooter didnt know is that, while he may think he got his re venge, he cannot stop an entire industry of men and women who believe in the never-ending quest for truth. Without journalism, companies and govern ments and those in power will simply continue to seek more power, conduct The views and opinions expressed on this page are those of the authors and do not necessarily reect the opinion of the Clay Today.

According to the Society of Professional Journalists, at least 39 journalists had been killed in the United States before the June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom with less than 10 killed dur ing the September 11 attacks. Many slain journalists were targeted because of their investigative journalism reporting. The Committee to Protect Journalists reports that eight U.S. journalists have been killed by crossre or murder between 1992 and 2018. Nobody ever goes into the eld of jour nalism for the money. We sit in on hour upon hour of boring government meetings, we attend ribbon cuttings and other pub lic functions and we simply keep smiling through it all. We go into this eld because we know we are part of something larger than us. We will not be shaken. Education from page 4 Governors offered Regulation 8.006, im plementing it for universities. Why, during those months, didnt the statewide faculty committee create a new test to go along with the new course they were specically authorized to cre ate? Because they knew they couldnt. Dont take my word for it; read the staff analysis by the Florida House or the one from the Ofce of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability (OPPAGA) from the end of the 2017 Legislative Ses sion. Both make it abundantly clear what existing means. There are some who are choosing to read existing as meaning the statute re quires only one existing assessment and that DOE can create as many new tests as it wants as long as one of them existed before HB 7069. That doesnt hold water either; the Florida legislature knows how to craft statutory language. Why would DOE aunt the law? How about the fact that they got caught back in March trying to make one of four existing assessments to meet the civic literacy requirement the U.S. Immigration Services Naturalization Test? You know, the one I wrote about in March, with such col lege-level questions as Name a state that borders Canada. When they were called on it, they with drew the rule, only to announce that they were going to use the Naturalization Test with supplementary questions. Which is where the Frey Institute comes in. At their May meeting, the State Board of Educa tion adopted Rule 6A-10.02413 without the Naturalization test in any iteration but were remarkably public that, sometime this summer, they were going to reopen the rule and insert the Frey Institutes handi work. Why? After all, the three remaining bypass exams (the AP History and Govern ment, and the CLEP Exam) are all genuine college level. I just graded the AP History Exam, and I know. DOE was public about that, too. They want something that is free, easy and online. Ive seen the work-in-progress of the Frey Institute; it replaces 58 out of the 100 questions on the Naturalization Test and makes them multiple choice. Would anyone dispute that that doesnt make it a new test? Why does DOE think it can cre ate a new test and claim that its an exist ing test? Heres the lowdown: the original Natu ralization Test was abandoned because it did not meet the competencies spelled out in Florida Statute 1007.25(4), because the answers are available online, and because it is fth-grade level. At a March 30 rule development work shop, DOE tried to claim that 14 states al ready use the Naturalization Test for Civic Literacy, but then was also forced to admit that none of them use it for a college level requirement. Florida would be the rst. The new test will also be online. How many times can you take it? Are the questions the same, no matter how many times? The new test retains more than 40 of the original questions whose answers are online now (how about that for a boost?) and still does not meet all the competen cies listed in both the statute and rule it self. And its a NEW test. DOE has had over a year to work on this, and they still cant read a simple stat ute. Why go to all this trouble? The answer is pretty clear to me: DOE is not interested in your college student actually learning the history and government necessary to be civically literate. Under pressure from universities who dont want to spend the money to teach the extra courses (despite the fact that they would clearly make money from them), they are interested in being able to report that 50 percent, 75 percent, 95 percent of college students were able to meet the new requirement. Even if it means aunting the law to do it. Bob Holladay writes the Florida Book man column for the Tallahassee Democrat and teaches history at Tallahassee Commu nity College.

Even Craveys editors sitting beside her said they were taken aback by the number of people with their hands raised high. Cravey, a reporter with The Florida Times-Union since 1987, received the Non prot Advocate Award from the Nonprot Center of Northeast Florida at its annual Local Focus. Lasting Impact. Awards Lun cheon. The gathering at the Jessie Ball duPont Center downtown gave her a stand ing ovation. The award recognizes a person or a company that fuels public awareness re garding the positive and lasting impact of our local nonprots, according to the cen ter. It is only the second one given, with the other in 2016 going to Sherry Magill, president of the Jacksonville-based Jessie Ball duPont Fund for the last 25 years and a leader in the national philanthropic com munity. She retires June 30. Nonprot Center CEO Rena Coughlin said for many years Cravey has reported on nonprot needs, impact and challenges. In a time when mistrust in the media and in all institutions is growing, having a smart and readable reporter covering your industry helps build credibility and awareness. And in the nonprot sector, we know that credibility is the currency of our realm. Times-Union Editor Mary Kelli Palka said the ovation and response is a testa ment to what Cravey and the newspaper does on a daily basis. Beth provides journalism that shines a light on important issues and doing that makes our community stronger, Palka said. We appreciate this recognition for Beth and her work in the Times-Union and on Jacksonville.com. Cravey is the wife of Clay Today Manag ing Editor Eric Cravey of Orange Park and the mother of Lochlin Cravey of Gaines ville. The Nonprot Center also paid tribute to a health care partnership that offers free mental health rst-aid training and a volunteer group formed to build a more inclusive Jacksonville. The Collective Power Award went to the Jacksonville Hospital Partnership Mayo Clinic, Baptist Health, St. Vincents Health Care, UF Health Jacksonville and Brooks Rehabilitation, the largest area hospitals for its initiative to train about 10,000 residents to recognize and help people in a mental health crisis. The award honors an unstoppable collaborative team of local nonprots, funders, government, business and/or community leaders that have gone beyond serving a population and implemented sys temic and sustainable improvements that solved big problems. This team achieved greater system-wide results than one or ganization could have realized on its own and, as a result, established a new stan dard of excellence. The impetus for the partnership, which formed in 2017, was a community health needs assessment that showed a signi cant need for education, awareness and responsiveness to the mental health chal lenge facing residents.

Ive been involved in theatre for 25 years in New York City and when I moved down here, I felt like Clay County was in need of some professional theatre, said Elaine Smith, producing artistic director of the Clamour Theatre Company. Smith traces her passion for doing the atre all the way back to her rst acting gig, as the star of her kindergarten play. Now, as a seasoned theatre professional, Smith and her associates have spent the last few years making Clamour into a reality. Clamour rst made waves by nishing in second place in the 2017 Pitch It In The Park contest to raise funds to acquire the historic Clay Theatre in Green Cove Springs as a permanent home for the com pany. However, that bid was unsuccessful as another buyer landed the property. The company instead performs at various ven ues across Clay County, while continuing to raise funds to not only nd a permanent venue, but also better compensate their professional actors. On June 16, the Clamour Theatre Com pany staged a reading of an original play, The Memories of Ruby Mae by local play wright Olivia Gowan. The play is the moving, and at times, hilarious story surrounding the life and death of its titular character. Gowan is hoping the successful reading in Clay County will translate into a future on the stage. Its very cathartic, its very vulnerable, and it brings a lot of anxiety, but its worth it, said Gowan. The cast and audience from the reading held at The Stage at NAPA at 1505 Wells Rd. in Orange Park were generally pleased with the way Gowans play turned out even if the rst cast dont follow the play to the stage. Clamour was able to serve as a valu able testing ground. Its a fantastic show, its very touch ing, said Gloria Ware, who acted in the show. The characters were well rounded and well dened and its a wonderful story, Im so proud to be a part of it. As a professional theatre company, members are working actors in the theatre industry. This is different from community theatre which allows members of the gen eral public to audition and doesnt pay per formers. The ultimate goal of Clamour is to provide actors with steady pay. This allows actors in Northeast Florida the chance to do what they love, professionally. Subse quently, it gives local theatre fans an op portunity to experience the performing arts in a new way without driving to Jack sonville or Orlando to see a professional performance. Theatre brings communities together, Smith said. It allows us to know ourselves better, it allows to know other people, oth er cultures, other ages, other races better and the world around us.

After all, everyone in the room is there to meet her, Clay Countys new chief advocate for those who fall victim to domestic violence and sexual assault. Martinez-Mullen is the new CEO of Quigley House and met with community leaders June 28 in what will be one of many meet and greet events locally. Martinez-Mullen brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with her to the position having previously worked as the specialized services coordinator at Hubbard House, a similar center in Duval County, for almost 15 years while also earning her law degree. That experience is certainly a plus, according to Assistant State Attorney Theresa Simak. The State Attorneys Ofce is very excited to be able to work with Anna be cause we know what she brings to the ta ble, said Simak. Her experience is go ing to be invaluable to those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. While Clay County does not have the reputation for crime that many counties in Florida do, Simak said domestic vio lence in particular is still a serious issue. Domestic violence isnt limited by gender, income, race, sexual orienta tion or anything like that, said Simak. It crosses all lines and barriers and can affect anyone. Thats why programs such as Quig ley House are so important, Simak said. Quigley House and the State Attorneys Ofce often work closely together. Whether its Quigley House helping vic tims report the crimes against them or the State Attorneys Ofce recommend ing their victims go to the program for counseling, the two organizations help each other whenever possible.

The new Orange Park Monarch Waystation, ofcially named the Monarch Byway, took quite a bit lon ger than two weeks to nally emerge from its own cocoon however. The process ulti mately took a little over two years. The process of establishing a Monarch Waystation in Orange Park began in May 2016 when Carolyn Warren was elected chairman for the project by her peers in the Garden Club of Orange Park. Her com mittee got to work and built and planted the waystation area at 1820 Smith St. in June and July, only to be destroyed by Hurricane Hermine in August before the committee could apply for certication from Monarch Watch, a network of students, teachers, volunteers and researchers dedicated to the study of the Monarch buttery. Not to be deterred, Warrens commit tee replanted the area throughout May and June 2017 and applied for certica tion, which Monarch Watch approved a month later. Excited and prepared, Warren planned a dedication ceremony for that September. However, Mother Nature had other plans once again as Hurricane Irma destroyed the waystation in early Septem ber, just before a planned dedication cer emony. The third time proved to be the charm for the waystation this year. Warren and her husband Bob planted the area in May 2018 where they took advantage of the heavy rainfall. The certication obtained in 2017 was still good so all that was left was to schedule a public dedication. Tropical Storm Alberto made its presence known early this year but the waystation was spared any damage this time around and PHOTOS BY CHASE CARLE Two years in the planning, the Orange Park Monarch Byway was ocially dedicated June 28 by the Garden Club of Orange Park on Smith Street. The Byway will help Monarch butteries thrive during their annual migration. rf the Orange Park Monarch Byway was of cially dedicated on June 28. A monarch waystation contains every thing monarch butteries need to sustain their migration and produce future gen erations of butteries. The most important plant at these waystations is milkweed. Monarch buttery caterpillars only eat milkweed, which provides necessary nutri ents that help them lay their eggs. There are also a multitude of nectar-providing owers at these waystations that help sus tain the butteries. The reason these waystations are need ed is because of the annual migration of monarch butteries. In the spring of every year, hundreds of millions of monarchs migrate from their overwintering sites in Mexico and Southern California to differ ent sites throughout the United States and Canada. Every fall, hundreds of millions of but teries make the return trip to those over wintering sites in Mexico and Southern California. Without the milkweed and the nectar from the owers, the butteries would not have the energy to make the trip and due to habitat destruction, the waysta tions are quickly becoming the main source of those plants for the butteries. Without milkweed, which is viewed by many as simply a pest plant, the monarch buttery would have nowhere to lay its eggs and would quickly face extinction. The Orange Park Monarch Byway is now ofcially part of a global conservation effort and the members of the Orange Park Garden Club hope it attracts plenty of but teries for Orange Park residents to enjoy. Warren nished the dedication with a buttery blessing that captures the vision they have for the waystation. May the wings of the buttery kiss the sun and nd your shoulder to light on, to bring you luck, happiness and riches today, tomorrow and beyond.

That can be an invaluable resource for victims who may not have access to other options or the money to pay for a lawyer. At the reception to introduce MartinezMullen, the original CEO of Quigley House and the woman who has been the interimCEO for the past several months, Ellen Siler, was asked to introduce her. Siler worked with Martinez-Mullen at Hubbard House and had been fervently hoping that she would apply and be select ed for the position at Quigley House. Siler began to get emotional as she spoke about how happy she was that Martinez-Mullen would be taking over in Clay County. Martinez-Mullen said she was grateful for her new role as CEO and for her valu able experience at Hubbard House. She talked about how eager she was to begin helping those in need and stressed how much strength it takes for victims to seek help. So often they view themselves as weak and helpless, said Martinez-Mul len. Theyre not weak, they are surviving every single day and that takes an im mense amount of strength. After the introductions, Siler spoke about how much Quigley House has changed since it was started in 1988 when she was the only employee. Quigley House rst began as a tele phone hotline before evolving into a shelter for victims in 1991. The program spent the rst seven years working out of a borrowed house and was originally only working with domestic violence victims. It has since become a program with its own headquarters and staff and now helps vic tims of domestic violence and sexual as sault. As far Martinez-Mullen, Siler only sees great things in the future for the pro gram under the new CEO. Shes the perfect person for Quigley House, said Siler. Shes the perfect per son for Clay County.

Suggs reports that the preliminary taxable value of Clay County property is slightly higher than the estimate reported on June 1. On June 28, Suggs submitted the Certi cation of Taxable Value to the Florida De partment of Revenue and the Clay County taxing authorities. The 2018 preliminary taxable value is estimated at approximate ly $10.6 billion, an increase of more than $723 million. The statutory assessment date for the 2018 assessment roll is January 1, 2018. Therefore, the overall increase in value is a reection of the upward direction the real estate market has taken during 2017. Al though market values have increased, the assessed values of properties with a home stead exemption will be limited, or capped, at a 2.10 percent increase, excluding any additions or improvements, and nonhomestead residential and commercial properties will be limited, or capped, at a 10 percent increase due to constitutional amendments passed by voters in 1992 and 2008, respectively. Taxable value is based on the market value minus differentials, or caps, and exemptions. The taxing authorities have until Aug. 6 to notify the property appraiser of their 2018 proposed maximum millage rates, and the date, time and place of their re spective public budget hearings. This in formation will be used by the property ap praiser to prepare the Notice of Proposed Property Tax forms (TRIM notices), which will be mailed to all property owners in mid-August.

Granted when youre little, no one wants to do homework and things like that, but they really sat us down and said no, youre going to do this and kind of gave us this mainframe and once we took to it they just let us go and do our own thing, said Cassidy. Jillian also made sure to enforce the fact that their parents instilled a sense of pride and self-reliance in all of them as well. I want to impress my parents but everything theyve taught has been do this for yourself, this isnt us thats go ing to gain from it. Its ultimately you. Youre going to get farther based on your efforts and youre going to reap the rewards. Were going to be proud parents on the sideline and support you whatever you do, but do it for yourself, said Jillian. But, what about sibling rivalry? Surely, that plays a part in this. If its not their parents driving them to succeed, could it be sibling rivalry? All three sisters dismissed that idea fairly quickly, although Cassidy joked about being the one to start everything since shes the oldest. Were all competitive but its more of an, OK, thats been done, what more can I do feeling, said Corrina. Its more about pushing each other to be better than trying to beat each other, said Jillian. All three agree that they were encouraged to try new things and their parents goal was for them to be as wellrounded as possible. For example, each sister took one year of music lessons in junior high to see if it was something they wanted to pursue further. I think all of us, except Jillian, kept going with an instrument at least through high school, said Corrina, laughing. Id love to learn more but I think I take more joy out of other people play ing the instruments, said Jillian. I dont think the French horn was quite her instrument, joked Cassidy, who played the alto saxophone in the Clemson Tiger Band, where she was also section leader. While Jillian may not have taken to music, she certainly excelled in other extracurricular activities. Jillian was captain of both the swim and track teams in high school while also playing soccer. At Clemson she is a member of the Alpha Chi Omega Soror ity, plays on the club soccer team, sits on the Calhoun Honors College Commit tee and RHA Community Council and participates in a number of other clubs and organizations. All of the Laird sisters have impres sive resumes of extracurricular activi ties to match their academic achieve ments. Cassidy was a drum major in high school band as well as being on the swim and soccer teams and doing martial arts. She founded the Order of the Engineer at Clemson, was a member of multiple honor societies and other organizations. Cassidy has also traveled and studied abroad in countries such as Australia, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic. Corrina plays soccer for both her school team as well as the Clay County Premier Club, is captain of the varsity swim team at Fleming Island where she qualied for districts, regionals and state, holds the 50-yard buttery and 50 yard backstroke records for the FCSSL, plays ag football and is a member of the Fleming Island varsity track team where she made All-County First Team. She is also a member of multiple honor societies, including the vice president of the Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society, a soccer camp counselor and a member of a number of other clubs and organiza tions. The Lairds certainly see the value in being well rounded, and they apply that philosophy to life in general, not just academics and extracurriculars. We found our own value in our community as well as our education. At the end of the day if youre just commu nity based or just education based then theres no connection between them, said Jillian. But the whole point, espe cially for engineering, youre supposed to do it for the public and for the better ment of the world so it really helps to have a well-rounded persona.

In late July 2015, an FBI condential source began exchanging messages with Goldberg as he posed as AusWitness on 12 CLAY TODAY July 5, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Police Briefs Keith Fiorentino Timothy Costello Joshua Goldberg Amy Carr social media. Between July and mid-August 2015, Goldberg discussed getting an indi vidual in Melbourne, Australia to carry out a terrorist attack and to have the conden tial source commit a bombing in the U.S. During portions of those conversations, Goldberg sent the condential source ve website links containing instructions for making an explosive device, including pipe bombs and other incendiary devices. On Aug. 20, 2015, Goldberg stated that he was thinking of pipe bombs at a large public event and later said that a pressure cooker bomb may be better. Later that month, Goldberg told the condential source that he had found the perfect place to tar get on September 13, 2015, and sent the condential source a link to a Kansas City, Missouri reghters event that memorial ized rst responders that had been killed in the September 11th attacks. On August 27, 2015, Goldberg instructed the condential source to place the bomb near the crowd at the memorial event and to ensure it was very well hidden. The following day, Goldberg provided the condential source with a list of items to use in the pressure cooker bomb, includ ing shards of metal, nails and broken glass. He then instructed the condential source to dip screws and other shrapnel in rat poison before putting them in the pressure cooker bomb in order to inict more ca sualties. Goldberg stated he would post a video of the bombing. A forensic analysis of the bomb making information determined that it could have been used to make explo sives that would cause property damage, personal injury and death. The Federal Bureau of Investigations Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Gold berg in September 2015.

(904) 215-2910667 Kingsley Ave. Orange ParkFor information call (904) 215-2910 Indicted from page 1 abandoned CCSO vehicle in Keystone Heights. When police got to Andrews house at 6357 Baker Rd. in Keystone Heights, there were numerous CCSO items thrown across a yard, including a taser, several loaded rearm magazines and more. After the call, CCSO made contact with Andrews who reported that his police ve hicle had been stolen and then abandoned a few doors down the street from his home. As a result, CCSO opened up a full inves tigation, during which, they determined that the damage done to the vehicle was consistent with the trafc crash reported by Chapple. It was then determined that Andrews vehicle was the vehicle that crashed into Chapples car. During CCSOs investigation, Andrews knowingly provided written and recorded sworn statements in which he said that his police vehicle was stolen. He also said that he was asleep at his home when his ve hicle was stolen and had no knowledge of the trafc crash reported by Chapple. Ac cording to the police report, Andrews also said that he never left his home the night of the crash. Further investigation concluded that Andrews had lied, as discovered by a num ber of reasons, including two witnesses who say they saw Andrews drinking at the American Legion Lodge shortly before the accident. Police also found that Andrews had used his CCSO-issued laptop shortly after the accident occurred. Police also seized Andrews personal and CCSO-issued cell phone records, which showed he was not asleep, but made phone calls in the aftermath of the crash. Police said the cell phone records show Andrews was in numerous areas of Key stone Heights prior to and after the crash. It was also determined that Andrews was the driver of the police vehicle that crashed into Chapples car. As a result, on May 16, 2018, an arrest warrant for Andrews was issued and the next day, on May 17, Andrews was arrested. Andrews was bailed out of the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce on an un disclosed bond amount. A little over a month later, on June 19, the State At torneys Ofce began proceedings to charge Andrews with two misdemean ors. Although it is unclear when it oc curred, Andrews resigned from the sheriffs ofce earlier this year.

While some resi dents fear another storm, others are still trying to recov er from the oodinduced destruction that came in the wake of Hurricane Irma last September. An estimated 300 homes are still in a state of disrepair as homeowners seek options for getting back to normality. The rst of the two meetings will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10 at the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce headquarters in Green Cove Springs. The meeting is hosted by the countys united church community and will focus on emergency preparedness as well as providing some information on the advent of school resource ofcers in Clay Countys junior high schools in ad dition to the ones who have already been working in the high schools. The church community mobilized imme diately following Irma, with an outpouring of volunteers countywide who worked to clean out homes, move families into tem porary housing and provide meals and sup plies to those displaced by the storm. The relief effort was organized by Clay Safety Nets Andre Van Heerden, who hopes to bring even more churches into the fold for future disaster relief. The clergy meeting will focus on identi fying churches throughout the community that will join the effort to provide facilities and food to volunteers, specically those from out of state, who need shelter while working on storm recovery. After Hurricane Irma, Van Heerden es timates that the community response was about 30 percent volunteering their time. Part of that was coordinated through the clergy, while others were just out on their own volunteering. Van Heerden wants to up that number to 60-80 percent should another disaster hit the county, and have all of the effort coordinated through a cen tralized location to provide the most ef cient use of volunteer resources. Our biggest problem is communica tion and coordination, he said. I want to challenge the community to come together through one central body. Van Heerden said that churches who want to stay involved in the community and be part of the non-emergency Clay Safety Net should start by sending a representa tive to attend their monthly meetings at 8:30 a.m. on the third Thursday at the Sal vation Army headquarters on County Road 220. Van Heerden said that once church es are all together and know each other, it makes it that much easier to mobilize should something happen that requires a great volunteer effort. Were really trying to rally the church es together, said John Ward Clay County Emergency Management director. After a storm the long-term recovery effort comes from churches and volunteers. Two days after the meeting at the sher iffs ofce, Clay County Emergency Man agement is hosting its own meeting spe cically geared toward those people who are still dealing with problems created by Irma. Ward and representatives from state and federal relief agencies will be on hand to provide information to people regarding home elevation or acquisitions. This meet ing will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 12 in the Middleburg High School cafeteria. We have a lot of residents still working on their homes and waiting on assistance, Ward said. At this meeting were hoping to nd out the exact number of residents who have needs, and well have representatives from agencies who can provide them with information on what to do next. rfr Andre Van Heerden JACKSONVILLE A former Clay County School District administrator is now the new director of the Northeast Florida Regional STEM2 Hub.

Phone Number Protected.Text 313131 to904-479-1555 Dr. William P. Register First Assembly Fleming Island Faith Walk Suering and victory A nnie Johnson was born on Christ mas Eve in 1866. When Annie was three years old, her mother died giving birth to her sister. Their father placed them in foster care where they stayed un happily for about two years. Then they were adopted by a loving Christian couple whose name was Flint. Annie and her sister took the name Flint and were known as the Flint sisters for the rest of their lives. At the age of eight, she was saved in a revival meeting. Annie Johnson Flint began a life of fellowship with the Lord. In her teen age years, Annie learned to express her heart in poetry. When her poetry matured, the verses challenged the mind and moved the heart. Her poems are still among the most powerful declarations of Christian faith. When her schooling was nished, she began to teach the primary grades in a school near her home so she could attend to her ailing mother. In her second year of teaching, Annie was attacked by arthritis. It became in creasingly worse until she was barely able to walk and by the end of her third year, she had to give up her teaching position. For more than 40 years, there was scarcely a day when she did not suffer pain. Here are the verses of one of Annie Johnson Flints greatest poetic messages. I will let it speak the message of her heart out of her great suffering. He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;To added afic tions He addeth His mercy,To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace. When we have exhausted our store of endurance,When our strength has failed ere the day is half-done,When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,Our Fathers full giving is only begun. His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men; For out of His innite riches in Jesus He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again. www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org By Wayne Hobbs Environmental Horticulture Agent Clay County GREEN COVE SPRINGS Does anyone want 80-foot-tall grass in their landscape? Landscaping with bamboo gives you that option and it can either provide an excellent feature or border plant or be an ecosystem-destroying nuisance, depending on the variety you choose. Keep reading to nd out your best landscape options. Spreading Bamboo The bamboo you denitely want to stay away from is the group commonly known as spreading bamboos including the ex tremely common Golden Bamboo (Phyl lostachys aurea). These spread heavily by underground stems called rhizomes, and grow rapidly. Once thought to be a great solution for quickly established screens, windbreaks and erosion control, their spreading nature allows them to overtake native plants and natural areas. Do not plant any spreading bamboos. If you have established spreading bam boos you want to get rid of, which is the case of many who have it on their property, options include digging out of small stands, mowing to control the size, or mowing and then using chemical controls. For more Good bamboo, bad bamboo information on bamboo control see http:// edis.ifas.u.edu/ag266. Clumping Bamboo An alternative to the invasive bamboo that is underutilized in the landscape are the clumping bamboos. This group of plants does not spread by rhizomes, but instead fairly slowly spreads from the main base. These can grow into excellent screens, a thick background for other plants, or an awesome specimen. There are some breathtaking variet ies of these plants, including black bam boo with a dark cane and Buddha belly, which has bulging, segmented shapes up the canes. They are also available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 3 feet to 80 feet tall. However, not all varieties are going to do well in our region so a little re search may be necessary to make sure it will be successful through the winter. Also of note is the cost, as many clump ing bamboos can be quite expensive. In general, clumping bamboos pre fer full sun conditions, but some will tolerate shade. They can survive in a wide variety of soil moistures but they will need some irrigation during estab lishment. Most need between 1-3 inch es of rain every week or so to be com pletely happy but many varieties are drought tolerant. Look for the leaves on the edge of your clump to roll, this is a sign of water stress. Native Bamboo Another little seen plant in the landscape is switch cane (genus: Arun dinaria) which is actually a group of 3 native bamboos. These usually grow to around 6-8 feet tall but can reach 25 feet in the right conditions. For more information on these plants see https:// plants.ifas.ufl.edu/plant-directory/ arundinaria-gigantea/.

By Randy Lefko Sports Editor FLEMING ISLAND The Florida SOL FC womens soccer club defeated Florida Gulf Coast FC 3-0 on June 24 and will be on a bye week July 1 to set up a must-win game July 7 against Florida Krush to keep play off hopes alive for the following week. Coached by former Fleming Island High goalie Katie Nimitz and St. Johns Country Day School ace Annie Bobbitt, the Florida SOL FC team is led by goal scoring forward Lissy Stoffel, a Clay High grad, who has been getting her assists from the left from Oakleaf High grad Nikki Conte. Against Gulf Coast, Stoffel wound up with the rst assist of the day with a cross ing pass to Madison Murnin for a 1-0 lead in the rst half. Later in the rst half, defender Talise Roman recovered a rebounded corner kick near the corner of the 18 yard line and re turned the ball into goal box only to have it bounce off the left side post. From there, Stoffel found a seam and buried the ball in the net for a 2-0 lead. Florida SOL FCs nal goal came in the second half with Fleming Island High grad Kirsten Sciartelli nding the foot of team mate Alyssa Howell as she sped into the face of the goalie. Florida SOL FC has one remaining game on July 7 before playoff brackets will be determined. The Sunshine Confer ence, where Florida SOL FC competes, is still undecided with only one of eight clubs mathematically eliminated. Only six points separate the top of the table from seventh place. FC Surge and Tampa Bay United sit in a three-way tie for second along with Florida Gulf Coast Dutch Lions, all with identical records and nine points. The winner of this match gains a serious ad vantage in the standings, and these points could prove the difference come the end of the season. In the South region, Asheville City SC, in the Carolinas Conference, is at 7-0-1 (28 Pts.) with Carolina Rapids in second place at 7-1-0 (21 Pts.). In the Southeast Conference, Chatta nooga FC at 6-1-0 (8 Pts.) leads with the Memphis Lobos second at 3-3-0 (3 Pts.). In the Gulf Conference, Pensacola FC leads at 4-0-1 (10 Pts.) with Baton Rouge United second at 4-0-1 (11 Pts.) Playo spot looms Special from armadafc.com NAPLES The Jacksonville Armada FC hit the road for the rst matchup with Naples United FC in the NPSL season Saturday. The home team delivered the Armada FC its second loss of the season with a nal score of 1-0. The rst half saw a few opportunities from the Armada FC, but neither team was able to get on the board. Instead it was a physical battle that yielded ve yellow cards between the teams. Armada forward J.C. Banks was rst to register a shot several minutes into the match. He found space to move in side the box and red a shot, but it went over the crossbar. Ciarn Kilduff was next with an op portunity when he gained possession of the ball in the mideld. He blasted the ball from 30 yards, but it also went over the net. The Armada FC received the best chance of the rst half when Derek Geb hard used his speed to get inside Naples box and tried to tap the ball in, but it was blocked by the Naples goalkeeper. The teams returned to the second half with more momentum and the Ar mada FC gained sight of the goal just minutes after play resumed. Just minutes into the second half, Naples received their rst shot on goal from some distance. Crucial goalkeeping by Armada goalie Brian Holt knocked the ball up and over the crossbar though. In the 65th minute, the game was suspended for 30 minutes due to light ning in the area. After the lightning delay, Naples got on the board in the 75th minute. An ini tial blocked shot by Holt was returned into the net on the rebound by Naples. Holt kept Naples from doubling its lead in the 90th minute by pushing out the ball after a close encounter inside the box. With two matches left, Jacksonville still has a chance to make the NPSL Sunshine Conference playoffs. The team will hit the road again for the last away match on Wednesday. Kickoff is sched uled for 2:30 p.m. against Storm FC at Central Broward Stadium. Armada re turns home for a 7:30 p.m. start against Naples. rrf STAFF PHOTOS BY RANDY LEFKO Florida SOL midelder Liz Fogarty, right, eyeballs her header as it heads downeld in SOL 3-0 win over Florida Gulf Coast last week.

As the Academy advanced to the Gold championship bracket, Lake Gibson Gold, with numerous team mem bers from their Class 2A champion team, beat NFWA 38-19 to knock out the Acad emy for their second run at a nals berth. I thought we would do better against them, said Cobbert. Our match after that I think they woke up and wrestled better. This is a grind and they were pumped to come after us. Against Lake Gibson, Peyton Hughes, from Clay High, came in with a shoulder brace after getting his shoulder wrenched Wrestle from page 17 in NFWAs opening Gold match against Ce dar Cliff of Pennsylvania. Hughes, a Class 1A champion for the Blue Devils, was less uid in his attack, but won, nonetheless, over 2A state qualier Elijah Gray 5-2. Hughes, 5-3 overall, was replaced in the lineup after Lake Gibson to take out key points for the Academy. Losing a guy like Peyton is devastat ing, said Cobbert. Hes a state champion and he gave it his best against Lake Gib son, but we didnt want to get him seriously hurt. He wanted to keep going. Gagliardo, third at 106 in Class 3A for Fleming Island and third twice in Class 1A for Clay, powered through his rst three opponents before losing to Warrior Elites David Pierson in Pool play to nish at Ross at 138 both nishing with a 10-1 re cord to earn a Silver All-American medal. Mercado and Ross both had seven pins. Also wrestling for NFWA Red were Jack Pham at 106, 2-8; Aidan Mayo at 113, 0-10; Brady Dunlap at 120, 0-4; Joshua Sando val at 126, 6-5; Kenneth Deford at 145, 6-5; Ethan Baur at 152, 6-5; Drew McDan iel at 160, 2-9; Bronson Carter at 170, 7-4; Pierre Toney at 182, 5-5; Zhaquez Grifn at 195, 4-7; Alexander Anzivino at 220, 8-2 and Michael Porchiazzo at 285, 2-9. For the Oakleaf Spartans, who moved to the Developmental Division after com peting in the Community I division last year, All-American status went to Cam eron Broughton at 126, 7-2, Bronze AllAmerican with seven pins; Ethan Gustilo at 138/145, 8-1, Silver All-American with eight pins and a 13-12 loss to Thomas Traver of Brawlers Bird Gang; Jordan Mo bley at 170, 8-1, Silver All-American with three pins and a win over Brendan Ham ilton of the Brawlers Bird Gang and Jacob Moore at 182, 7-2, Bronze All-American with four pins. This was a team put together with a few area teams, said Oakleaf coach Wes Champs. The guys who earned All-Ameri cans are veterans of this level of competi tion and were leaders for the younger guys. This was a denite boost to our program. Also wrestling for Oakleaf were Egan Gustilo at 106, 2-7; Marcus Mcgee at 113, 1-8; Owen Bronson at 120, 3-6; Da vid Parkes at 132, 5-4; Killian Prentice at 145/138, 2-7; Dustin Tollison at 152, 4-2; Robert McGynn at 160, 0-9; Caleb Dickens at 195, 4-5 and Ryan Delgado at 220/285, 4-5.
