A review of the personnel le for Flem ing Island resident Latanya Peterson, candidate for the District 1 Clay School Board seat, shows a clouded work history during her tenure as a teacher with Duval County Public Schools. And while her rea son for termination on June 30, 2014, was problems with her license, she left under the cloud of a lengthy investi gation into a stan dardized testing scandal at Sandal wood High School. In the 2014 school year, Pe terson was a 10th grade English teacher at Sandal wood High. As was usual, her class as well as others, were subject to whats known as a Curriculum Grade Assessment. This CGA is a test given to students each quarter to assess their learning and is used by the district to gather data regarding overall student growth. On March 3, 2014, a day before her class was to take that quarters CGA, Peterson sent an email to Testing Co ordinator Sharon Bailey asking what would happen if she didnt show up to work to ad minister the exam. Bailey told Peterson she didnt know what would happen, according to ofcial emails documented in public re cords obtained from Duval Schools.

After working on the issue for three years, Congressman Ted Yoho(R-3) of Gainesville announced Aug. 1 that a 10year lease has been signed at 400 College Dr. to establish a Veteran Affairs Clinic at the site. Clay County has a population of approximately 29,000 veterans. Currently, there are approximately 11,000 veterans enrolled for care within the North Florida/ South Georgia Veterans Health System. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to share today that Clay County is getting their clinic. This project has been a prior ity for our team and I want to commend all our stakeholders who helped make this happen. There has been such a demand and a need for this project and I want to thank the VA for their efforts on this proj ect, Yoho said. The new clinic will include primary care, mental health services, lab draws and select specialty care via telehealth. Once online, the clinic is projected to at tract approximately 4,500 new Veterans and serve more than 11,000 veteran en rollees in the following years. The awarded lease has an initial contract for a 10-year lease. Construction timeline and activa tion schedules will be determined in postaward design meetings that Congressman Yoho will take part in. No details were pro vided about the size of the project, the cost or the target date for opening. We cannot do enough for our veterans and look forward to the increased care and service that will be provided out of this clinic. While today we celebrate this milestone, we still have work to do and will be working closely with the awardee and the VA in design and planning meetings to make sure we get this to the nish line as quickly as possible. This is a major win for Clay County but also for all Veterans in the 3-year drive for VA clinic resolved region. This is a project that we were not willing to give up on and we refused to let this chance slip away, Yoho said. In 2016, 2017 and again in February of 2018, Yoho hosted community stake holders, leaders and local veterans in the county to make potential bidders aware of the multiple proposals available for this project. Despite the rst two rounds of VA RFPs going unanswered, Yoho contin ued to garner support for the project. In February, several proposals for the project were submitted, which led to this weeks announcement. In addition to maintaining regular com munication throughout this process with local stakeholders, Rep. Yoho has launched a section on his website that is dedicated to the progress of this Clay County VA Clinic. One of three buildings at 400 College Dr. in the Doctors Lake Center will become home to a new VA Clinic, a project announced Aug. 1 by U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho(R-3), who has been working on this for three years. By Chase Carle For Clay Today ORANGE PARK Millions of web surfers have seen the video and soon, Orange Park residents will be able to try the coffee that Sheriff Darryl Daniels enjoys every morn ing. It doesnt have to be the result of an early morning SWAT raid however. All it will take is a trip to Urban Bean Coffee house Cafe. The Clay County Sheriffs Ofce is part nering with the local coffee shop to create a special Sheriffs Blend. The sheriff came to us with the idea and said that he thought it could help raise some money for the Police Athletic League, said Urban Bean Owner DuWayne Hagel. We always love being involved and giving back to the community and this seemed like a great way to do that. CCSO Public Information Ofcer Chris topher Padgett responded to questions via email and said the sheriff rst got the idea to approach Urban Bean after the coffee video went viral. The sheriff saw it as a unique way to build off the message that the video started. When asked about how much money they hope to raise for PAL, Padgett said that any amount would be a win but he hopes to raise a record-breaking amount to help benet the community. Padgett also said the sheriff had a clear vision of the type of blend he wanted to see produced. A blend of coffee that mirrored the high quality of service provided by our agency to the community, said Padgett. Only a high-quality coffee would do. Hagel said that it wasnt too difcult to come up with the right blend for the part nership. We had kind of an idea of what he likes for coffee, said Hagel. I know he likes his coffee strong, so we took some of our stronger coffees and created a blend with those. 3 Big Gulps Sheriffs Blend coffee coming soon The blend has already been given Dan iels stamp of approval. Hagel said the sheriff has been by several times to sample the blend and hes always left happy. Padgett conrmed Hagels statement on the sheriffs opinion of the blend. The community will be just as amazed at the taste as the sheriff was, said Padgett. He loves it. Sheriffs Blend wont be available by the cup at Urban Bean, it will be sold as the whole bean blend for customers to take home and make themselves. Hagel said that theyre offering it mostly as a whole bean coffee because he believes its better to brew it immediately after grinding the beans, but theyll work with customer re quests as well. Hagel said theyre in the process of nalizing the artwork on the bag that Sher iffs Blend will be sold in. He said that he hopes the blend will be ready to sell within the next two weeks barring any complica tions with the printing process. Those two weeks cant go by fast enough for any citizens looking to take their own three big gulps, words that went viral in a video in which Daniels stands in a home where the SWAT had entered and he talks about how those commit crimes in Clay County may end up having morning coffee with Daniels as the result of a raid like the one in the video. The video got more than 3.4 million million views online.

AUGUST 2, 2018 CLAY TODAY 3 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer MIDDLEBURG The long-overdue Omega Park improvement project has nally bro ken ground and in mid-August, construc tion crews will begin the facelift that the popular Middleburg park has needed for years. On July 26, Middleburg Association of Athletics members and their president, county commissioners, parents and chil dren, gathered near Omega Parks small and aging concession stand to celebrate the ofcial groundbreaking of the parks upcoming $470,000 renovation project. Ironically, one of the biggest improvements coming to the park will be this concession stand that, despite its best efforts over the past years, is no longer getting the job done. When this project is complete, a new concession stand will sit in its place with upgrades air conditioning, bathrooms, utilities and most importantly, an upgraded area for volunteers to serve the area. Two years ago, Commissioner Mike Cella made a motion to get the ball rolling on the funding Omega Park needed. Now, two years later, Commissioner Gayward Hendry joined Cella as they listened to Chairman Gavin Rollins, whose district the park calls home, explain the importance of parks. Parks are key to building strong com munities, Rollins said. On the football eld, soccer eld, baseball eld thats where character is built and thats where families are able to have healthy, quality fun. Thats what its all about. According to Rollins, the support of this project has been stellar. He said this has been a plan at least two years in the mak ing and now that its nally here, families in the area couldnt be happier to know whats coming. And while the concession stand is one of the more exciting things coming, there are a lot of other improve ments that have park-goers happy too. One of those things is more behind-the-scenes than anything else, but according to James Householder, director of facilities for Clay County, its one of the most important up dates Omega Park is set to receive. Were overhauling the entire drainage structure of this park, Householder said. While not the most exciting thing to hear, Householder said the new drainage will help alleviate the large amounts of standing water the park can often see after extended periods of rain. He said a large portion of the nearly $470,000 budget for this Omega Park project is going toward the drainage. When Middleburg experiences large periods of continuous rain, the football and baseball elds will often nd themselves signicantly more muddy than usual. Mid dleburg Association of Athletics Football Commissioner Andy Butler, who has been with the program since 2005, said there are many kids and many parents happy about a future with drier elds. The elds dont ood or anything its never anything too bad but it can get pretty wet on the elds, Butler said.

4 CLAY TODAY AUGUST 2 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Joe Henderson FloridaPolitics.com V oting in Florida is a right, not a privilege. And since life today doesnt run at the same pace as it did back when Ozzie met Harriett (look it up, kids), the govern ment should make it as easy as possible for citizens to exer cise that right. So yes, it was, as League of Women Voters of Florida President Patricia Brigham noted in the following state ment: truly a victory for the citi zens of Florida July 24 when U.S. District Judge Mark Walker granted a preliminary injunction against the states prohibition on early voting at college and university campuses. Why would the state try to prohibit ear ly voting in such locations? Oh, lets take a wild guess. College students generally skew toward more progressive ideas and candidates. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who needs every vote he can get to unseat Democrat Bill Nelson in the race for the U.S. Senate, is not progressive. Republican gubernatorial candidates Ron DeSantis and Adam Putnam are not progressive. Ergo, logic 101 would tell us that Re publican candidates will lose votes if stu dents can cast early ballots at the place where they go to school and spend most of their time. Its not always easy for them to track down a regular polling place, so thats where the GOP made its stand. Tacky. As the judge noted in his ruling, This Court can conceive of fewer ham-handed efforts to abridge the youth vote than Defendants afrmative prohibition of oncampus early voting. The hammy hand began its subter fuge in 2014 when Secretary of State Ken Detzner ruled that a building the Univer sity of Florida planned to use as an earlyvoting site didnt meet guidelines to qualify as a polling place. That led to what Walker called a stark pattern of discrimination designed to suppress on-campus voting. If the injunction becomes permanent, By Eric Cravey I t was a day of solidarity and unity and it sent a huge message to those in elected ofce in 2016. Hundreds of Clay County teachers crammed into the Teacher Training Center at Flem ing Island High to attend a quasijudicial hearing the school board was holding after an administra tive law judge recommended the district end its impasse over the teachers union contract negotiations. Months of stressful and boisterous school board meetings forced members of the Clay County Education Associa tion union to search for a creative way to voice their opposition to the boards actions and debate during the hear ing. When contentious subjects arose in the boards discussion, an unforget table sound of uttering lled the room as if a swarm of doves was taking ight from Trafalgar Square. Clad in red union golf shirts, teachers bonded to gether and held up simple white sheets of 8-and-a-half by 11-inch paper baring the words We Will Vote You Out in August printed in black. No spoken words or jeering, just a unied mes sage without a threat or boos or other disdainful speech. The 9 a.m. hearing was held at such an inconvenient time that teachers were forced to use personal days off to attend and take part in the decisionmaking process. Board member Janice Kerekes started the meeting by asking thenchairman Johnna McKinnon if she could have a point of order to voice her objection for holding the meeting at what was viewed an inconvenient time. Her objection was met with claps and vocal cheers from the approximately 300 attendees. Your objection is noted, McKinnon responded. Kerekes went on to offer a motion that the entire meeting and its agenda be tabled and re-scheduled for a time that was more convenient for teachers and other stakeholders to be able to attend. Board member Carol Studdard seconded Kerekes motion, which was voted down 3-2, with McKinnon and board members Betsy Condon and Ashley Gilhousen joining her. Kerekes then went on to make a motion to lift any time limits for those who wished to speak at the hearing despite at the outset of the meeting, McKinnon stating that citizen com ments were going to be limited to 30 minutes total before the board would discuss the merits of the administra tive law judges recommendations about collective bargaining. Kerekes request was met again with applause and overt joy. When that motion was also killed on The views and opinions expressed on this page are those of the authors and do not necessarily reect the opinion of the Clay Today. Wed like to hear from you.

AUGUST 2, 2018 CLAY TODAY 5 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM it has the potential to tip statewide elec tions. Scott twice won the Governors race by about 1 percent. Across Florida, more than 1.1 million young men and women were enrolled in in stitutions of higher learning in 2016; near ly 830,000 were enrolled at public colleges or universities, Walker wrote. Almost 107,000 staff members worked at these public institutions. Put another way, the number of people who live and work on Floridas public college and uni versity campuses is greater than the pop ulation of Jacksonville, Florida or the populations of North Dakota, South Da kota, Alaska, Vermont, Wyoming, and the District of Columbia. Trying to hold down the turnout from voters likely to support the other candi date is becoming a pattern for Tallahassee Republicans. In 2011, for instance, Republicans cut the number of early voting days in the state from 14 to eight and eliminated the option of casting a ballot on the nal Sunday be fore Election Day. Black voters were par ticularly affected because that nal Sun day has become known as Souls to the Polls in their churches. Under withering pressure, Scott re lented and signed a law in 2013, restoring much of what had been taken away. The judge did it for him this time, and it has big implications in a year where stu dents, in general, are registering to vote in large numbers, likely as a response to the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Doug las High School in Parkland. It strains credibility to suggest the states resistance to on-campus early vot ing has nothing to with what kind of build ing that might be used as a polling place. It has everything to do with the fear young people might get motivated in a way that might not bode well for the incumbents. Well, as Ive said before, Im not a law yer. In this case, though, I think its possible to succinctly summarize what the judge felt about the states argument: Seriously? And heres the knockout punch: Stu dents rights proved more important than incumbents privilege. n Joe Henderson has enjoyed a 45-year career in newspapers, including nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune.

History from page 4 on a 3-2 vote by the same board play ers, Studdard asked why Superinten dent Charlie Van Zant Jr. was sitting at the dais with the board. Then, Tracy Butler, who repre sented the CCEA at the time, took to the audience podium to say how she believed Van Zant was sitting at the dais as an intimidation factor. The tension was obvious from the beginning. The hearing would go on to last more than 2 hours and end with a 3-2 vote to deny the magistrates report leaving the teacher contract at status quo. School district ofcials cited state mandates to shore up its fund balance to three percent instead of providing teacher raises. Superintendent Charlie Van Zant Jr. said his recommendations were based on the scal reality of the school district. I wrote down what I wanted to say to make sure Id get it all in and I dont appreciate those comments, said Gihousen, responding to an audience member who alleged she was read ing from a statement prepared by Van Zant. By the end of the meeting, the tension had evolved into fear as she asked a Clay County Sheriffs deputy to escort her out of the building. Fast forward to 2018 where Gil housen is in the midst of her rst-ever re-election campaign for the District 5 seat on the Clay County School Board. One glimpse of her direct mail campaign card that went out to voters last weekend and its clear to see what her priorities are not. Put simply, it reads like she is a politician, not someone who cares for Politickin from page 4 teachers or children. In fact, the word student appears on the mail piece one sol itary time. The word teachers or teacher is nowhere to be found on the piece. What she focuses on are political buzz words, such as conservative, leader, and school choice, which translates into charter schools. And its a well-document ed fact that her children attend St. Johns Classical Academy, the rst-year charter school whose board president is her moth er, Diane Hutchings, who is also a county commissioner. There are some 5,000 employees of the Clay County School District who should read Gilhousens mail piece and decide for themselves who has their back going forward. And it wouldnt surprise that when school board term limits get voted in in November which they likely will since Rick Scott has made them a hot-button issue again this year, as a state constitu tional amendment that Gilhousen, if reelected doesnt bounce over and try and run for County Commission or some other seat in the future, because, after all, once a politician, always a politician.

By Kile Brewer Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Elections in Clay County should be more secure than ever with federal grant money being spent locally on both physical and cyber security. Following recent attacks on voter registration systems in Illinois and Ten nessee, the federal government handed down $381 million across the nation in an attempt to securely lock down the en tirety of the election process. The creation of the Elections Infrastructure subsector following the 2016 election cycle allows the federal government to spend money on elections, not just the states. The state of Florida was granted $19 million of the federal money and Clay Coun ty Supervisor of Elections Chris Chamb less was awarded $138,740. According to Chambless, this money will be put to good use, though the process in Florida remains more secure than others by design. I cant speak to other states, but I will tell you that in the state of Florida, we again have a paper ballot and I can repro duce the election over and over and over again, Chambless said. The most compel ling argument against the insecurity of an election here, is that after an election is completed there is a mandatory audit that takes places of randomly selected precinct and contest that is not known by anyone. This physical hand counted audit of that precinct and contest would illuminate any irregularities. Though Florida hasnt seen the same in trusion that has happened in other states, Chambless said there is still a need to look forward and make the process as secure as currently possible. Everything is hackable, what makes it not hackable is physical security and cy bersecurity, Chambless said. But start thinking about the process called zero day. The reason antivirus is able to detect ma licious or bad signatures is because they have been used before, and in best systems those signatures are updated in real-time. What happens when youre the rst, and the script is rst being used on you, this is known as a zero day threat. The grant will fund the incorporation of the state-of-the-art Albert network moni toring system that will identify any threats to the voter registration records should someone try something like what was done in Illinois or Tennessee. Though the ofce is implementing great er physical and digital security, Chambless maintains that the actual voting process is and has always been completely se cure. The machines, which are sealed and locked when not in use, work ofine, and are never connected to any network where they could be accessed remotely. Also, the fact that all the ballots are marked paper ballots allows them a greater freedom for reproducing results without even using the machines if it were necessary for the integrity of the process. He said that the biggest factor in 2016 election, and the one that was most common, was social media campaigns to bring about political polar ization among the population. Our systems are tested for 100 per cent accuracy, not 99 percent or one or two ballots, Chambless said. At the end of the day, I just dont know how you would be able to change the accuracy. I think the larger motive was to cause social discourse or this whole idea of corrupt government, elections bought and paid for, and those things are very hard to combat against. Though many of these types of attacks happen without warning, Chambless said that the new systems being put in place will offer greater protection for the pro cess, in the same vein as the large steel bollards that line the outside the ofce which would stop a car from ramming through a building. Everyone should be very impressed and proud with resources that we have deployed here in Clay County, Chambless said. Its no longer if, its now becoming when [an attack will be attempted], and it would be prudent for any government agency to adopt that same philosophy.

We all need to stand together in the ght against substance abuse, Davis said. Were here to help our youth make the right decisions so that they can stay healthy both mentally and physically. In the video, there will be a series of stand-up interviews cut together that feature monologues from Coy, Davis, Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels, and CAC Executive Director Donna Wething ton. The goal is to keep their messages short and succinct and present a unied front against drug use by the youth in the community, as well as the adults. We want to promote a pro-social message that its never OK to use drugs, Wethington said. Its important to keep that message that we, as adults, dont want drugs in our community. We want to stop it and we want to start young. The nal product should be about two minutes long and in the typical drug-re sistance education fashion, comes with a catchy tagline, Choose to Refuse, which will be shouted by dozens of young volunteers toward the end of the video, all wearing bright red T-shirts that bear the slogan. The goal is to get this out to all grade levels, in the morning announce ments, and especially during Red Ribbon Week, Wethington said. We want to keep kids healthy and keep their brains healthy and promote the development of their social skills. Message from page 7 Clay County Superintendent of Schools Addison Davis walks o camera after delivering an anti-drug monologue. Bride from page 8 the United States Veterans, said Jones, who refers to herself as an American-Aus tralian, not an Australian-American. After moving to Florida, Jones joined the Garden Club in Keystone Heights. Later, she served as the president of the Keystone Heights chapter. Jones is also a founding member of the Garden Club of Green Cove Springs, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary last year. The Green Cove Springs Chapter has worked on nota ble projects such as cleaning up the Green Cove Springs Library, adding a Buttery Garden and redoing the shrubbery around the Historic County Jail. She has also worked on several proj ects that honor the United States military veterans, including the Veterans Path way Project and bringing Wreaths Across America to Clay County. Jones started the Veterans Memo rial Pathway Project, a veterans memorial with engraved bricks, in November 2004 after dreaming up the idea. She present ed the project to city council and it was agreed on by a unanimous vote. Building began on the Pathway in Jan. 2005. I kept thinking for a long time about what I could do for the GIs. Fifty-four years later, I had a dream in the middle of the night. I went out to the kitchen and started writing all of this stuff down. It was the dream telling me what to do for the GIs, said Jones. She dedicated her life to the project, which was funded in full by private dona tions from businesses and organizations in and around Keystone Heights. For years, she coordinated and emceed Independence Day, Memorial Day and Veterans Day cer emonies at the Pathway Memorial. In 2009 and 2010, she attended cere monies for Wreaths Across America at the Jacksonville National Veterans Cemetery with a friend and then began wondering if the program would work in Keystone. So, she contacted the national nonprots headquarters in Maine and started tak ing donations for the wreaths. Two years later, in 2011, the rst Keystone Heights Wreaths Across America ceremony was a hit and had around 200 people in atten dance. I invite everybody; I would say within 100 miles around Keystone Heights, she said. Weve never had less than 200 people (at the ceremony), she said. Over the years, it has spread through out cemeteries across Clay County, in cluding churches throughout Middleburg, Green Cove Springs and Orange Park. Jones orders wreaths for other cemeteries upon receiving donations. Then, the other groups come to Keystone Heights and pick up their wreaths at 9 a.m. on the morning of the national ceremony. For her seventh year involved with Wreaths Across America, Jones is already planning the program and receiving dona tions for wreaths for this years ceremony in Keystone Heights. This year, she wants to have a kids choir sing the National An them. Sponsors can donate $15 for one wreath or buy two wreaths and get one free for a $30 donation. Jones plans to gather donations for 700 wreaths this year. The 2018 ceremony is set to take place on Dec. 15 at the Keystone Heights Memorial Gar dens. Jones says that anyone who wants to help unbox the wreaths can show up at 9 a.m. on the day of the ceremony.

Clay County can now worry a little less after ofcials stepped mosquito control efforts last year when they hired Louisiana-based Mosquito Con trol Services, which was founded in 1985. While Mosquito Control Services has regional ofces throughout much of the Southeast. In Clay County, Entomologist Jessi Howard serves as the overseer of operations for the companys East Coast program in Georgia and Florida. Howard is currently training fellow employee Sarah McInnis to manage daily operations in Clay County. Her team, along with the help of surrounding teams located in other counties, is responsible for ensur ing the West Nile Virus found in a sampling of mosquitoes located in Keystone Heights didnt make its way across the county. Be cause of their work, which included initiat ing a response protocol involving elevated and targeted larviciding and truck spray ing in the general area where the positive sample was collected, re-tests of mosqui tos in the area showed negative for West Nile Virus. Nobody in Clay County was diagnosed with the virus during this time either. Anything that is disease capable is identied and sent for testing, Howard said. As we saw recently, when we do identify a disease presence, its not really a reason for alarm were proactive and we caught it early. We then followed our emergency protocol where we basically quarantined that health risk. We achieved our goal as the tests are now coming back as negative. This was the companys rst document ed health risk in Clay County and according to Howard, it went as well as expected. We executed [this health risk] pretty well for our rst time in Clay County, but the goal there also is to not just identify the disease and then act appropriately, but educate the public as well, Howard said. Howard said public education is a ma jor facet of mosquito safety. When the West Nile Virus was found, Mosquito Control Services delivered door hangers to houses in the area that alerted the homeowner, worked with the news media to get the word out and worked with multiple agen cies to ensure the community knew not only what was being done, but how to best protect themselves. The recent rains have also forced of cials to remain aware of the threat that standing water poses in the world of mos quito control. Mosquito Control Services has been working day and night to stay on top of the problem. During the day, a signicant number of hours goes into the research of those pesky insects that plague just about all of Florida. Howard said the company has numer ous functions here in Clay County sur veillance, disease-testing, potential breed ing site identication and inspection, appropriate larvicide treatment, chemical adulticide truck applications and commu nity education. Bugs dont respect county lines, so we work with agencies outside of Clay County and within the area, and we are constantly working to trap, test, research and sup press [the mosquito population], Howard said. Hidden within Clay County, although mindful eyes might see them, are four different kinds of traps although they have plenty more at their disposal used to trap mosquitoes that Mosquito Control Services will then test to identify things such as West Nile Virus although more commonly, the mosquitoes turn out to be free of health risks. Surprisingly, that itch might not be what you think. Although the common ver nacular is mosquito bite, its technically not a bite at all: its a proboscis penetra tion. A proboscis is an elongated sucking mouthpiece that is dened as typically tubular and exible, and commonly found on mosquitoes and many other insects as well. Before the proboscis penetration, the mosquito which is female because only the females do this spit on your skin. Spit acts as a numbing agent and the itch that follows isnt a reaction to the probos cis entering your skin, but rather, its a reaction to the numbing spit. According to Howard, this spit is the mosquitoes way of sucking blood from the skin without the victims knowledge. Without this numbing agent, its easy to imagine that a mosquito bite might pack more punch. To prevent these unruly itches, How ard said its important that people prevent the buildup of standing water, the ideal place for a mosquito to lay eggs. Mosqui toes only needs about a bottle caps worth of water to lay eggs, of which there are typically 200. By removing standing water from your premises, youre removing the chance that another 200 mosquitoes call your stomping grounds their home. The removal of standing water is just one of the 4 Ds that Clay County Public Information Ofcer Kimberly Morgan said Clay County people should follow: Dusk/ Dawn, Deet, Dress, Drain. Dusk and Dawn are the times when mosquitoes are most active. If youre out during these periods of the day, the chance of a mosquito bite are very much heightened. Deet is the spray that every mom in the county tells their kid to wear. It doesnt kill the mosquito, but it instead makes you invisible to its an tenna, which is typically how mosquitoes nd their prey. Everyone should dress ap propriately mosquitoes cant bite your skin if a long-sleeved shirt and pants are covering it so if youre going into a mos quito zone, think about wearing some lay ers. The, residents are urged to drain all standing water. Howard wants all residents in Clay County to know that while the West Nile Virus is dangerous and can be frightening, Mosquito Control Services is constantly working to remain proactive and on top of the situation so that when occurrences do happen, such as in Keystone Heights, things are business as usual they trap, research, test, suppress and test again to ensure the risk is gone.

Solar is denitely growing at a rapid pace, and FPL is in one of the largest solar expansions in the United States, Heiman said. Over the next 10-15 years youll see a much larger incorporation of solar energy and with that youll start to see other tech nologies that piggyback off of solar like bat tery storage technology. FPL has plans to incorporate 2,300 megawatts of solar power into its system by 2023, which would put the Juno Beachbased power company at about 10 million total solar panels in service. To reach that level they would need about 31 solar energy centers, and theyve built, or at least started building, just over 20. Heiman estimates that the eight brought online this year will save customers $100,000,000 even after the cost of construction is factored out. Though the project wont bring much power to Clay County residents who dont receive FPL power, Heiman said that once construction gets going they will offer about 200-300 jobs to local people for the 7-to 9-month construction period. Two years ago, when constructing the solar center in the Melrose area, FPL hired some contractors for as much as $18 per hour, which at the time, were jobs that proved to be in-demand. We ask contractors to look and hire lo cally, Heiman said. Weve seen that in two recent North Florida projects, in Putnam and Alachua Counties, where 90 percent of the labor came from in and around those counties. Heiman also said that once the Magnolia Springs station is nished, that does not nec essarily mean the job is done. Contractors pull talent from previous jobs onto new construction sites, he said. Theyre going to look at previous workers rst when they go to build the next one be cause of that experience. Recently FPL met with its future neigh bors at the Green Cove Springs Police De partment, which they consider an act of good faith as well as to explain the project before it gets underway, what impacts if any and just to get to know the area and the people who live there. We want to continue to be as transpar ent and open about the project to our future neighbors, Heiman said. Meetings like this benet us too because these landowners know the area and can help us out. He said that some people hear power plant and think about smoke stacks, trucks going in and out and lighting at night. With solar, however, none of this is the case. Once the solar center goes online it is monitored remotely, and functions without any sound or need for after-dark lighting. FPL has even partnered with the Audubon Society to in corporate Solar Sanctuaries into most of their projects that provide a habitat for local animals, such as bees or bats since the pan els go directly into the ground and still allow grass to grow underneath.

AUGUST 2, 2018 CLAY TODAY 15 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Thomas Webber W hat a spectacular sum mer it is for those who enjoy the splendor of a starlight night. Even the most casual of observers would have noticed four bright jewels appearing night after night, competing for our attention. These brilliant points of lights are actually not stars, but other worlds of wonder Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. Indeed, the Red Planet is some what of a celebrity right now, the center of some fantastic facts and some faulty ction. First, the facts: Mars is very close to Earth right now. In fact, on July 31 Mars was the closest to Earth than it had been since 2003. At the time of print, it is still very close, roughly 57.6 million kilometers or 35.8 million miles. This close approach of Mars means it is currently the fourth brightest object in the night sky, behind the Sun, Moon and Venus. It is even a whopping 1.8 times brighter than the mighty Jupiter. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to experience this contrast among four worlds. Venus is the brightest object in the western sky after sunset. Moving eastward against the backdrop of stars we nd Jupiter, then Saturn and nally Mars. For almost two hours, from the rise of Mars at 8:50 to the setting of Venus at 10:45, our celestial stage is replete with four of our planetary neighbors. Their or der of brightness is Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. For those of you already writing let ters to the editor, I left out Mercury on purpose. Yes, it is technically visible in the western twilight. But it also sets at approximately the same time Mars is ris ing, so it is difcult to do a direct com parison. Neener neener. So what physics is at work that brings Earth and Mars so close together? The phenomenon is called perihelic opposi tion and is due to the fact that the orbits of the planets are elliptical. This means that every planet has a point where it is closest to the Sun, and a point where it is the farthest. I bet you can see where I am going with this. Earth reaches the outermost point of its orbit, called aphelion, in early July. Even at the end of July, we are much farther from the Sun than average, and therefore much closer to the orbit of Mars. Meanwhile, Mars is near opposi tion. This means that, when viewed from above, the Sun, Earth, and Mars are in near alignment. One last condition: Mars closest or bital approach to the Sun perihelion is occurring while it is in opposition. Put it all together, and Mars is very close to us, relatively speaking. And now, for the science ction: Back in August 2003, when Mars was a mere 56 million kilometers or 34.6 million miles from us, the closest in over 60,000 years, rumors spread on the internet that Mars would appear as large as a full moon in the sky. Almost every summer since then, this claim seems to rear its ugly head. Not one to be overly dramatic, permit me to say that if this were true then there would have been a humdinger of a gravi tational shift in our Solar System and we would have much larger concerns than how Mars looked in the sky, such as rapid temperature shifts, extreme weather and tides and even the loss of our atmosphere. This whole rumor started because of a statement that was made back in 2003. Because Mars appeared 6 times larger and 85 times brighter, it was written that Mars would appear as large as a full moon does to the naked eye through a telescope with 75x magnication. The last part of that statement was ignored, and the rumor mill began. Let this be a grammar lesson to us all. And remember, as I just veried on Wikipedia, it was Abraham Lincoln who warned us to not believe everything we read online. Now, you must excuse me. I just received an email from a foreign prince promising he would share his fortune with me if I sent him money to release the funds, and I am going to go yacht-shopping. n Thomas Webber teaches AP Physics at Oakleaf High School and worked in the planetarium eld for nearly 20 years, including at MOSH, and has also taught physics and astronomy at both the sec ondary and collegiate levels.

Election from page 1 Peterson showed up to work anyway and administered the test. During the rst period of testing, then-Principal Victoria Schultz, walked in to check on Petersons class after Bailey had alerted Schultz about Petersons email. The result: Schultz walked into a classroom in which students were not being tested, according to the 7-page DCPS investigative report. When Schultz asked Peterson why the students were not testing, Peterson said her stu dents were not ready for the exam and that she didnt understand why they needed to take it. Principal Schultz informed Ms. Peter son that it was too late for her rst period students to take the exam; however, she expected Ms. Peterson to be in the com puter lab second period administering the exam to her students, states the DCPS in vestigative report. During second period, Schultz joined Peterson in the computer lab to assist with the administration of the exam. According to the report, Schultz noticed that the ma jority of the class was scanning over the exam and not marking answers. Schultz made what appeared to be a mental note and then left the class. Later in the day, another teacher at Sandalwood High, Crystal Parker, in formed Schultz of something Peterson had told her. Ms. Peterson stated to Ms. Parker that she (Ms. Peterson) told her students to mark all C on the exam, states the DCPS investigative report. Due to this information, Principal Schultz printed the exam and it appeared to be true. All of the rst period students selected C as the answer. Its likely that this occurred due to something Peterson told her class. We was in class and we wasnt ready to take the CGA 3, but the Principal said we have to so we all went down to a com puter room and Mrs. Peterson suggested we all pick C, so the whole class picked C, one student said, whose name was redact ed from the report. The report features another 11 stu dents detailing what occurred, all point ing toward their teacher, Peterson, telling them to essentially do whatever [they] want on the exam one student even used the term Christmas tree in their witness report. Once Schultz learned that all of Peter sons rst period students selected C, she instructed Peterson to tell her students not to pick C for every answer. The next class to test after Schultz told Peterson this was Petersons fourth period class. They didnt choose C for every answer. Instead, the majority of students chose A. Some of the witness statements report that Peterson told them to all pick A. A deeper dive into her DCPS personnel le showed that Peterson clearly under stood her duties as an educator. On August 26, 2013, Peterson signed the Test Admin istrator/Coordinator Prohibited Activities Agreement that states, I understand that during testing I may not do anything that would cause the achievement of the stu dents, teacher, or school to be inaccurately measured or reported. On the night of March 4, 2014, Peter son attended the Duval School Board regu lar meeting. According to Peterson, she went before the board ahead of the test ing period to ask the board not to force the teachers to administer the test. I went before the school board, and its documented, the day before the test was supposed to be given, and I asked, Please dont have us give this test. Our students arent ready. If we can push it back, that would be great. Give us time to teach it so its a true assessment that we can use to measure their growth,, Peterson said. At the meeting it was said that it was up to the discretion of the teacher, and I knew that was the answer, but I wanted to go on record because other teachers did not know that. However, a search of past Duval School Board meetings, failed to show Peterson spoke to the school board. According to Peterson, union mem bers are not required to administer the test. At the time of the testing investiga tion, Peterson was vice president of one of the teachers units within Duval Teachers United, the teachers union. Terrie Brady, DTU president, would not comment on any specics of Petersons case or the CGA, but she did say that no union member can ne gotiate the terms of administering a test. You asked me the question, Can a union member basically be exempt from administering a test? and the answer is no, Brady said. Right now, the district is the one that gives us test dates and there is some exibility of measurement, but [its] not by test dates or end-of-course work, or any other major test that is sent out by the district. Rena Lee Paiva, president of the Clay County Education Association teachers union, concurs with Brady and said that in Clay, teachers are not allowed to choose whether or not to administer a test. Its a teachers job to administer a test and administer all tests as directed by the Superintendent, Paiva said. [Union mem bers] dont get exempt. The next day, on March 5, 2014, Schultz met with Peterson and presented her with the allegations made against her in an ef fort to grant her an opportunity to explain herself. Peterson denied that she directed her students to choose C as their answer choice, according to the investigative re port. However, the witness statements of the students in her class offer a clearer glimpse into the allegations. Some stu dents said Peterson told them to pick C for every answer and thats it. Other stu dents said she said to pick C for every answer, but that they didnt have to if they didnt want to. The day of the tests, March 4, 2014, an ofcial investigation was opened by DCPS. On March 5, 2014, Schultz reported to Aaron Clements, the investigator from the DCPS Ofce of Equity and Inclusion/ Professional Standards, to show him the answers of Petersons class. All of her rst period selected C as the answer, accord ing to the district report. Six students in her second period class selected exclu sively C, while the entire class selected C for the majority of their questions. In Petersons fourth period class, 11 students selected only A as their answer with the majority of the class choosing A as well for most of their answers. As part of the DCPS investigation, Schultz obtained writ ten statements from many involved, in cluding the teacher, Crystal Parker. According to Parker, Peterson told her why she instructed her students to answer the exam the way they did. Because we decided that C was going to be the answer to all the questions, said Peterson to Parker, according to the inves tigative report. No one else takes the test seriously, so why should I? Later in April of 2014, the investigation ended with the conclusion that Peterson violated the Code of Ethics and the Prin ciples of Professional Conduct of the Edu cation Profession in Florida which states, Shall make reasonable effort to protect the student from conditions harmful to learning and/or to the students mental and/or physical health and/or safety, and, Shall not intentionally suppress or distort subject matter relevant to a students aca demic program, respectively. Based upon the foregoing, it was de termined that there is substantial evidence to sustain the charges of the exercise of SEE ELECTION, 19 You asked me the question, Can a union member basically be exempt from administering a test? and the answer is no, Brady said. Right now, the district is the one that gives us test dates and there is some exibility of measurement, but [its] not by test dates or end-of-course work, or any other major test that is sent out by the district.

After a jury trial in Clay County, Antho ny Delane Washington, 33, was convicted in September 2016 of rst-degree murder and burglary with an assault in the death of Alphonso Doss, 44, who was at Naval Air Station Jacksonville for training. Doss was murdered on Feb. 12, 2014. Washing ton was sentenced to concurrent terms of life im prisonment and 30 years in prison. Washington argued that his convictions and sentences should be vacated because the incriminating statements he made to the police should have been suppressed, states court papers. Washington having an affair with Dosss estranged wife, Yolinda Hunter Doss when Navy commander killer appeal denied the killing took place at the Astoria Hotel. Orange Park Police interviewed Wash ington 9 days after the murder and six months later when Washington drove him self to the police station around 10:17 p.m. After several discussions about his Miranda Rights and the right to an attor ney and being honest and doing the right things, court documents state Washington began offering two OPPD detectives some incriminating statements. Washington moved to suppress his statements, arguing that they were not freely and voluntarily given because the detectives ignored his repeated requests for counsel and downplayed the signi cance of the Miranda warnings. After con sidering argument from counsel and view ing the video recording of Washingtons interrogation, the trial court found that there was no delay in the administration of Washingtons rights and that there was no indication that he was intimidated, co erced, or deceived into waiving his rights, states the DCA ruling. The court also found that Washington never clearly and unequivocally request ed counsel during the interrogation. Authorities believed Doss was killed be cause his wife wanted to collect $600,000 in insurance money that she was due if he died, authorities said. It is well-settled that police ofcers must immediately stop an interrogation when a suspect clearly and unequivocally requests counsel at any time during a cus todial interview, states the DCA ruling paperwork. Failure to do so requires sup pression of any statements made after the suspect has invoked his right to counsel. However, the police are not required to stop an interview when a suspect makes an equivocal or ambiguous request for counsel. During the second interview, police asked Washington numerous times if he needed a lawyer and Washington asked police as least twice, So will I walk out ta here tonight? to which one ofcer re sponded by saying, Well, we dont know what youre gonna tell us Anthony and the second detective told Washington, We wont know the answer to that. The DCA ruled that Statements such as maybe I should talk to a lawyer are not unequivocal requests for counsel, states the ruling handed down Aug. 1. Washington did not thereafter invoke his right to counsel and indicated his will ingness to speak to the detectives after being fully advised of his rights. Because Washington did not unequivocally invoke his right to counsel, and the detectives provided straightforward and simple an swers to Washingtons questions about his rights, we hold that the trial court properly denied Washingtons motion to suppress. The DCA also stated that there was no evidence to determine whether Washington was mentally incompetent and did not un derstand the detectives line of questioning. The circuit court trial prosecutors said Washington, Yolinda Doss, and Wash ingtons friend, Ronnie Wilson II, 35, am bushed Alphonso Doss in the hotel room while Yolinda Doss acted as a lookout, then staged the scene to look like a burglary had gone awry. Anthony Washington Sandridge Road to open next week LAKE ASBURY Clay County ocials report that this stretch of Sandridge Road, where a new culvert is being installed, should open on August 10, weather permitting.

As a result of these ndings, Peterson was issued what is known as a Step II Pro gressive Discipline, a written reprimand. This disciplinary action was given instead of a reduction of pay or full dismissal in the effort to give her a more progressive disci pline, reads the district report. This rep rimand was placed in her personnel le. While Peterson was not dismissed as an employee from Sandalwood High School, she would later be terminated on June 30, 2014, due to issues with her teaching cer tication. Documents in Petersons personnel le showed she was teaching on a temporary certicate and Peterson did not turn in proper certication to maintain her teach ing position. According to Peterson, she purposefully chose not to pursue this cer tication and instead resigned because she was planning to work for the Republican National Committee. Before her termination, however, the Florida Department of Educations Ofce of Professional Practices Services opened an investigation into Peterson on May 28, 2014. On February 3, 2015, The Florida Department of Education published a 74page report and closed Petersons inves tigation without taken any type of action against her. Instead state ofcials stated that the written reprimand she had already received was appropriate and no further action would be taken. On top of this investigation, but not necessarily linked to it, Peterson received an ofcial evaluation using the Collab orative Assessment System for Teachers, which earned her a .6 in the area of show ing professionalism. This score translates to developing/needs improvement, and is close to the score that would have trans lated to unsatisfactory. According to Peterson, all of this oc curred because she promised her students that she would never test them on mate rial they hadnt yet been taught. In this instance, the test covered subjects she hadnt yet taught which is why she told her students to answer the way she did. Mean while, the Duval Schools investigative re port states that Peterson denied telling her students to all pick C. Peterson told Clay Today that she told her students to do whatever they want on the exam because she didnt want to hold her students accountable for something she didnt teach them. When asked why they hadnt been taught this information yet, Peterson said that simply put, her class had not yet reached that point in the curriculum. It was our discretion as a teacher, per the union, that if they werent where they needed to be, you could lump [two tests] together so that in the [sixth week], you could have one big test, Peterson said. That was our goal. We had talked about it as a department, but because again, I was the one that was vice president of the teachers union, the principal wanted to make an example out of me and that was ne. Peterson said the reason an investiga tion was opened was because she was in volved in politics. The principal at the time, because I was politically-active, decided to take it another step further and start this investi gation, Peterson said. Nothing was found because it wasnt a state assessment its a district test. So thats what happened. When asked about the punishment, Peterson said that the reason she only re ceived a written reprimand, rather than harsher punishment, was because there was no real harm done, although no stu dent in her class received higher than a 60 percent on the exam, she said. It was, OK, maybe not the best choice of words to say, do what you want to do, but it was no harm, no foul, Peterson said. Now, more than four years later, Peter son stands by the decision she made in 2014. I stand by it, Peterson said. We didnt have to use the benchmark test that we were given so it didnt matter. Nobody uses the data but the district and thats why I fought for it. I let the process do what it was going to do and I came out in favor, Peterson said. However, a further look into Petersons personnel le showed she had also been in volved in a testing investigation when she taught at Oceanway Middle School. The May 24, 2012 investigation did not result in disciplinary action after another teacher reported Peterson. While counting test booklets Ms. Pe terson was witnessed reviewing the End of Course Examination for Language Arts and taking notes on the content, states her personnel le. According to DCPS personnel records, Peterson held a temporary teaching cer ticate for English Grades 6-12 issued for 7-01-2006 to 6-30-2009. A current search shows she does not hold a current teach ing certicate in Florida. Prior to teach ing in Duval, Peterson taught two years in Broward County and half a year in Nassau County where she resigned mid-year, on November 2, 2006, before her teaching evaluation. She taught a total of 69 days in the 2005-06 school year. Former Sandalwood High principal Vic toria Schultz, who now serves as Chief of Schools for DCPS, did not return calls for this story. Park from page 3 some improvements to help that and in all of the changes coming to the park. Some of the changes coming alongside better drainage and a new concession stand is a resurfaced parking lot, a basketball court, a tennis court repaving and more. Shannon Cloud, president of the Middle burg Association of Athletics, couldnt be more thrilled about the changes. For her, parks are not only a place to gather and enjoy a ball game or slide down a slide, but a living piece of the community as well. This park is not only home for us, but its home for many, many, many years of memories, Cloud said. Everybody here has had a loss, theyve had a victory, but what theyve had most is friendship and family. Its a place where friendships are made and lessons are learned. [These improvements are not only happening] to make the ones that served before us proud, but we want to pave the way for those that will come after us, so that we can continue on the legacy of Omega Park in Clay Coun ty. On July 26, ocials from Clay County govern ment held a groundbreaking ceremony at Omega Park o County Road 218 in Middle burg. The park is going to get about $470,000 in upgrades some say are long overdue.

Excelsior Status acknowledges law enforcement agencies that have successfully completed ve reaccreditations without conditions and is FCACs highest form of recognition. It takes in excess of 15 years for an agency to attain Excelsior recognition as assessments are conducted in 3-year intervals. The award comes after the jail went through an onsite review in March led by a threemember team from the Osceola County Corrections Department. The team ensured compliance with 248 Florida correction standards. Of the 248 standards, the detention facility complied with all mandatory and applicable non-mandatory standards. The assessors commended CCSO Detention members for their knowledge and professional ism. They also commended several facility programs, including the implementation of Batterers Intervention, a 24-lesson, hour-long program that is modeled after the Duluth Model using the Power and Control Wheel Control and Power. The program is to help the abuser identify their behaviors and correct them by using the Equality Wheel. The Clay County Jail received its initial FCAC accreditation in 2003 and every three years since, it has earned reaccreditation status. Excelsior Status was awarded on June 19 at an event in Orlando.

He has a justice system in place that always provides true jus tice just as He has promised. We have experienced many high prole, highly publicized criminal trials in Florida. They have emphasized the aws and weak nesses of our legal system. There will al ways be aws and failures in a system that depends on men to deny self interest and do the right thing. God is just and perfect. So, all of His verdicts are right. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? (Gen. 18:25) It is a rhetorical question because the answer is obvious. Yes. We can always depend on God to do the right thing. Everyone will stand before the bar of Gods justice to give an account of his life. The Bible makes this very clear. Romans 14:12 says Each of us will give an account of himself to God. And when you stand in that awesome place you know that God will not be unfair or unjust. But that presents this problem. When I look at my life, I know I do not want the verdict that I deserve pronounced on me. I do not want to eternally serve the sentence that I know I deserve. That Great Judge has made a provision for me to receive mercy. I can make the claim that the penalty for my law-breaking sinfulness has already been paid. When that claim is proven true, God will show me mercy and forgive my trespasses be cause He will not require my sins be paid for twice. He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:32) God shows his love for us in that while we were still sin ners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) The justice of God has already been sat ised by judgment for sin being laid upon Jesus on the cross. If you accept that pro vision of Jesus, your sins are forgiven. You can then expect mercy when you stand be fore Gods justice bar because the penalty for your sins has already been paid.

In June, Carnegie won the Junior Miss of Florida 2018-19 pageant. By Sarah Pickett For Clay Today MELROSE A veteran. A photographer. The mayor of Melrose. These are all titles that Cornelius Clayton Jr., 74, of Melrose, holds. Born in Jacksonville in 1943, Claytons parents moved to Melrose in 1949. He graduated from high school in 1963 as the vice pres ident of his senior class. After high school, he worked at Shands Teaching Hospital until he was drafted for the Vietnam War in December 1966. He was wounded during a napalm drop after six-and-a-half months in Vietnam, which put him in a hospital in Japan for about three months. Upon returning to the United States, Clayton received a Purple Heart. He went on to spend his last nine months of service at Fort Benning, Geor gia. I (was) supposed to get one (Purple Heart), but it was a mistake on the or ders, Clayton said. He received one of the Hearts in Viet nam, and another when he returned to stateside. After his military service, Clayton went back to work for Shands. Then, he used the GI Bill to earn an associate de gree at Santa Fe College in Gainesville. He was working on a bachelors degree in management at the University of Florida when he started experiencing post-trau matic stress disorder. I nished about halfway with my Bachelors, but my PTSD really started kicking in then, said Clayton. To overcome this challenge, he relied on the strength he has in God and his life passion for photography. Photography has strengthened me because it took me to where people were, he said. He started photographing people when he was 12-years-old. He took his camera to church and school. Then, he became more involved in the art of photography and began shooting events, weddings and class reunions. I dont go anywhere unless I take my camera, whether Im taking pictures or not. Its just my life, he said. I do it for fun, most of all. Occasionally, I do it for events. Im also a clown; I like to tease and make people laugh, he said. Melrose is home for Clayton. He loves Melrose for its trees, country roads and kind people. He has attended the same church, Saint John Missionary Baptist Church, since he moved to Melrose in 1949. It is a nice country town. Everybody gets along. Everybody is family there no matter what the race is. Theres a lot of love in Melrose, said Clayton. Clayton is known as the unofcial Mayor of Melrose. We cant have a mayor. But, since Ive been living there since 1949 and know a lot of people, (the town) proclaims me as the Mayor of Melrose, said Clayton. He loves to help others, too. If theres any way that I can help you, I get great joy out of doing that, said Clayton. Karen Lake, mayor of neighboring Key stone Heights, has known Clayton a num ber of years. He is certainly the unofcial Mayor of Melrose. While I can claim Keystone right now, today, I think Clayton will al ways be considered the unofcial mayor for Melrose. We celebrate him and are very proud of what he does for our com munity, she said. Tony Brown, former mayor of Key stone Heights, has also known Clayton for around 15 years. Hes probably one of the funniest guys Ive ever met. Ive never seen him down. Hes always happy and fun to be around, said Brown.

24 CLAY TODAY AUGUST 2 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Wayne Hobbs Environmental Horticulture Agent GREEN COVE SPRINGS Daily rains are now the norm and could likely stay that way until fall. This can be a great thing for landscapes but for some homeowners, they forget one fact that should be done in weather patterns like this. Turn off your ir rigation. Irrigation Needs Within the lawn and landscape, irriga tion can be a great help when it is needed during dry times but right now is not that time. If the forecast is calling for rain for several days throughout the week, it is a good idea to go to your irrigation timer and shut things off until it is needed again. For lawns, wait until the grass leaves fold or turn silvery which are the signs of a thirsty turfgrass. In beds, most of our land scape plants will not need much supple mental water during the year so watering should be done only as needed. The only exception to both of these rules is if you are trying to establish newly planted lawns or landscapes, where additional water may be needed. Rain Shut-O Devices Did you know that you are legally re SOURCE: UF/IFAS Water is a precious resource in Florida, so ensuring your irrigation is o when it isnt needed is vital to conserve water for future generations. Irrigation and Rainy Weather quired to have a functioning rain shut-off device if you have an in-ground irrigation system? Whether you knew that or not, it is probably time to check your current one or install one if its missing. Rain shut-off devices work in a few ways, the most common being a sensor that operates using a cork disc. When the cork becomes wet, it expands and the sensor will cut off your irrigation system. These are low cost and low maintenance. However, this cork can break down over time, so it is a good idea to replace the cork in your sensor on an annual basis. There are other options available in cluding those that shut off irrigation when water lls a cup and goes over a weight limit and some that work off the electrical conductivity of rainwater. However, they are less common. Soil moisture sensors which measure the water available to plants and will shut off irrigation systems until levels drop to a place of need are also very effective. When deciding on a shut-off device, think about its effectiveness and cost. Cork based devices are very affordable (starting at less than $20) while other op tions may be more expensive. No matter the device, install it based upon manu facturers recommendations and check it regularly. If you want to take the next step in au tomating your irrigation, look into smart timers. Some allow you to change sched uling through Bluetooth and others even receive weather reports through the in ternet and water your lawn accordingly. n If you have any horticultural, agri cultural, 4-H, or family and consumer science questions, contact the Univer sity of Florida/IFAS Clay County Exten sion Ofce online at http://www.clay. ifas.u.edu or call by phone at (904) 284-6355.

Most notably is Oakleaf High School with features, arguably, the fasters ball carrier in north Florida if not all of Florida, senior tailback Keshawn King. Im not going to tell you too much, but were going to throw the ball down the eld, said Jamaric Bonner, a Knights se nior slotback who also doubles as a safety on defense. He (King) is a little faster than me, but Id give the ball to him. Knights coach Frank Garis, a rst year hire with sideline experience at such offen sively strong schools as Ponte Vedra and Clay, likes the look of the new Knights. First and foremost, we are going to run the football, said Garis. July was a perfect attendance month for the today and that tells me they are buying into the system. Top names mentioned were King, Bon ner, Xander Warner, a tight end and mas sive offensive tackle Jalen Rivers at 6-5, 310-320 lbs. The team likes Walter and thats vital, said Garis. Just down the road, Ridgeview High houses the most dangerous package of pass play acrobats led by senior quarter back Tyler Huff. Huff has a crafty bunch of pass catchers with Denalo Lindo, Jaiden Turner, Brian Jackson and tailback Caleb Plyler. We miss just one guy from last year with Kiaran Turner, Jaidans big brother, graduated with his nine touchdowns, said Huff. Its easy to spread the ball. I think we have the most explosive offense around. One plus for the is senior tackle Cory Nicholson, who returns from an injury to lead a ve-man front that missed games last year with injuries. Me and Anthony Troupe come back from injuries and our other three are re turners, said Nicholson. We know we have explosive guys behind us and we have to deliver our part to get them downeld. At Fleming Island, senior quarterback Dean Hyams should be strong with big run ning back Dewayne McBride, who missed most of the season last year with a broken hand after bludgeoning Clay High in the season opener, and veteran Max Michaels behind him. Hyams top target will be reconverted offensive tackle back to tight end Sam Snyder, a 6-5 product that just ver bal committed to University of Louisville. Media Day Snyder will be a prime target from his height with slot back Aaron Ramirez, a track 100, 200 meter runner, the second shot downeld. Dean has improved on his patience and will be able to make that good decision to nd one of us or Jacob Ashe, the other 6-3 pass catcher at a wide receiver slot, said Snyder. They big question mark for Fleming Is land fans is replacing the three graduated linebackers. They set the bar very high, said Flem ing Island defensive coach James Nichols. Coach Kennard (former Oakleaf defensive coach Kyle Kennard) has been doing a good job to nd the right three. Clay High senior quarterback Spen cer LeSage comes in as a returning pass catcher from last years region nal team, but standing in this summer for injured se nior Turner Erstad. Turner got his rst return to the eld today, said LeSage. We dont know yet who is going to be quarterback. I dont re ally care where they put me as long as we win. Clays strength, as history has shown, comes from the offensive line that just grinds down people up front. Led by senior Jordan Collins, the front features senior center Mike Carns, who Fleming Island High seniors, left to right, Jake Libretto, Aaron Ramirez, coach James Nichols, Sam Snyder and Eugene Oglesby at Baker Sports Media Day in Jacksonville. Clay Highs Blue Devils at TIAA Stadium were, left to right, Mike Carns, Jordan Collins, Ricky Bernabeu, Spencer LeSage and Wilguens Dorvilus.

AUGUST 2, 2018 CLAY TODAY 27 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Randy Lefko Sports Editor ORANGE PARK Football is here. Monday, July 30, was the rst ofcial day of practice for area high school football teams and the prognostication of who wins and who loses will start at the most signi cant position on the eld. Gone are Clay Highs Caleb Eason, Mid dleburgs Garrett Blanchett and Keystone Heights Adrian Ciena, who transferred to Bradford County High School. Also via transfer, Orange Parks top candidate, A.J. Mealer, is now at Baldwin High with wide out Terrance Johnson a potential returner to quarterback for coach Tom Macpherson. Back behind center are Ridgeview se nior Tyler Huff, Fleming Island junior Dean Hyams and two underclassmen, St. Johns Country Day School freshman Max Monroe and Oakleaf High sophomore Walter Sim mons Jr. Tops in the county at quarterback, thus far, barring the eeting ability for athletes to transfer to other schools on a whim it seems, Ridgeview High senior Tyler Huff stands out as the guy to watch for 2018. He kind of has the keys to the engine for us, said Ridgeview High coach Camer on Porch. He struggled his rst year as a sophomore which is expected, he improved a ton his junior year as he started to un derstand our scheme and, this year, he will run the show as his team. His maturity level at this point makes his expectations very high. Huff, who nished with nearly 1,700 yards of passing offense with 21 touch downs and a 54 percent completion rate, returns to the helm with a bevy of targets to choose from in the Panthers unique run-pass option setup. Top catcher will still be junior Denali Lindo, who grabbed a team-leading 26 passes last year with ve touchdowns as graduated Kiaran Turners nine touch downs will have to be replaced. Also impressive over the summer, with Ridgeview engaging in a handful of 7-on-7 passing scrimmages with area opponents has been senior Brian Jackson. Jackson was a critical sixth-man last year with 14 catches and four scores, but his glue fac tor has been up-ticked over the summer. We really dont have one go-to guy with our offense and thats a plus, said Porch. Porch led the Panthers to a scorching start last year with a 6-1 season opening record led by a ton of scores, but Fleming Island, Clay, Menendez and Baker County all stumped the party with wins over the Panthers. The Clay game (49-3 district loss), I think, shocked the team, said Porch, who noted three straight losses to end the sea son; one to Menendez, that knocked Rid geview from playoff contention with a 6-4 record. I think this year we know what it will take to take on the big programs on our schedule. At Fleming Island High, where the Golden Eagle defense was the focal point of the attack, junior Dean Hyams returns at quarterback to guide a potentially explo sive offensive unit complete with a big run ning back; junior Dewayne McBride, and a huge pass catching target; 6-5 tight end Sam Snyder in his holster. He has to become more consistent in his directing of the offense, said Fleming Island coach Damenyum Springs, who got a region championship berth against Bar tram Trail last year that ended the season with a second loss to the Class 7A runnerup Bears. With the repower around him and a great summer of preparation, he just has to stay calm and deliver the ball. Hes got all the tools. Hyams, in summer passing sessions, looked smoother out of the pocket and a bit more patient in waiting for his targets to clear defenders. Having Snyder as his main target, as was graduated tight end Nick Ferendo, also a 6-3 product, will make Hyams job easy and the pair has already started clicking through passing scrimmages over the summer including a 19 scores in three games output at the Jacksonville Univer sity pads camp in July. Snyder, a Louisville verbal commit after a slew of college offers came in when he shifted back to his tight end position after being an All County offensive tackle, could very well be the most productive point scorer in the county next year. He did us a favor last year and stepped in at tackle last year due to injuries, said Springs, who nished at 11-4 last year. Hes a natural tight end with great size and is one of our fastest guys on the eld. At St. Johns Country Day School, twoyear starter Max Monroe, only a sopho more, has the benet of one of the top returning coaches in all of Florida in for mer Oakleaf, former Fleming Island coach Derek Chipoletti. Chipoletti has an outstanding record of developing quarterbacks with Oakleaf freshman Jordan Johnson playing all four years for the Knights with an undefeated playoff season in Chipolettis nal season. Fleming Island High junior quarterback Dean Hyams was thrust into the helm two years ago amidst coaching changes, but has emerged as the top gun for the Golden Eagles oense while leading Fleming Island to a region nal last year. Ridgeview High senior Tyler Hu ramped up his game last year under coach Cameron Porch, but just missed the playos. This year, Hu is expecting big things for his Panther Nation. SEE QUARTERBACK, 30

We have to live up to the history of past offensive lines. Orange Parks future shifted quickly with the tranfer out of one probable quar terback, but the retooling of a junior var sity guy, Vinny Walker, who comes in with his own set of skills and targets, according to coach Tom Macpherson. Terrance Johnson, last years quarter back and a key playmaker, is the guy we want to put the ball in his hands as much as we can, said Macpherson. Vinny has two starts under his belt and our base of fense is designed to get the ball to our skill guys. Skill guys included Alex Collier, a track speedster; Zykiem Sermons at tailback; Deonte Demonick, who returns from a shoulder injury and adds some heft to the attack with Sean Dixon, another track speedster on the outside. We have enough skill position guys that if our offensive line holds up, well be alright, said Macpherson. On the line, big men James Rhodes (280 lbs), Cedric Flanders (240 lbs.) and Silas Little (295 lbs.) will lead the charge. We are working on our fourth and fth guys to complete the offensive line, said Little.Our chemistry is working together Media from page 26 with three years strong with each other. Watch for sophomore tailback Alex Col lier, a 48 second 400 meter track guy that took third in the 400 for Class 3A. Hes a speed demon, said tailback Robbie Reynolds, also a linebacker. St. Johns Country Day School, under new coaches Derek Chipoletti, Steven Reynolds and former Oakleaf High center David Broskie, are starting at ground zero in giving the Spartans a new look. Its a quaint atmosphere at St. Johns, said Reynolds. Just the community of players, fans and parents is special and we want to improve that. We are creating a buzz. From the Spartans, newcoming senior Tyler Townsend, a Bishop Snyder transfer after a freshman year at Oakleaf with Chi poletti. We want to just show everyone who we are, said Townsend. Every one wants to make us their homecoming game. Thats going to change. Key on offense is quarterback Max Monroe, a prototype-sized player with good size, good vision and a little grit. Monroe loses his favorite receiver in Cade Walden and tailback Troy Myers, but Eli Morton returns to be the offenses leader. Eli will be a feature back with Max Arnold a slot, said Reynolds. Townsend makes a good tight end target. Max can St. Johns Country Day School had, left to right, Tyler Townsend, Wyatt Smith, Ashton Correia, Alex Mosborg and Eli Morton as representing the Derek Chipoletti era.

Max can be a premiere quarterback at any other school, said Spartans assistant coach Steve Reynolds. He has the tools; great arm strength, tough, leader and has not missed a workout all summer. He can be the beacon that leads St. Johns into the future. Missing will be graduated Cade Walden, Monroes top target and running back Troy Myers as Chipoletti will have to work his magic with a team near 20-25 athletes. Monroe is one of the biggest kids on the team, has visited a handful of quarterback camps through the summer, including the Peyton Manning Camp and has a good eye on the eld, of course, Walden being 6-3 was an easy target. At Oakleaf, sophomore Walter Simmons was impressive in leading the Knights un der new coach Frank Garis to a 14-14 tie in the spring game against Class 5A run ner-up Baker County with a few drops of probable scoring passes within the rst half. We are blessed to have a quarterback of his talent as a sophomore, said Garis. Walter started every game last year. Hes Quarterback from page 27 made tremendous strides and his team mates like him. Thats half the battle. Simmons nished with 1,100 yards passing with ve touchdowns off 44 per cent completion rate, but must rely on pass catching help to show off his skills; a soft long ball and accurate slant and out slices, that could give Garis high-ying offensive mind from Ponte Vedra High in 2017 with a state runner-up nish capable of putting big points on the board. Simmons has the fastest running back in North Florida, Keshawn King behind him with All-American game invite Jalen Rivers on the offensive line. Between the three, Garis should be able to get the ball down eld quickly. At Middleburg, a third Justino, Joseph, takes over the Broncos offense with dad Robert Justino and big brother Daniel Jus tino in his dugout ready for advise for the agile and quick-footed little Justino. He has a great football IQ and with his family all being quarterbacks, I dont think there is a question that he cant ask that they wont have an answer, said Middle burg coach Karl Smeltzer. He opened with the spring game and showed some good survival skills out of the pocket. Our offensive line will be the key to him being more productive. Middleburg has three massive of fensive linemen; underclassmen Larry LeClair, Colby Warner and senior Jesse Saunders to protect Justino. LeClair and Warner were impressive at a line camp at FSU over the summer. Last year, injuries killed us, said Smeltzer. We lost 30 of our 43 players for at least one game last season. At Clay, coach Joshua Hoekstra has been bantering about three or four names; senior Spencer LeSage, a converted wing back/receiver last year; senior Turner Er stad, who is hoping to return full time prior to the season start; sophomores T.K. Kocak and Tre Griner. LeSage and Kocak took most of the snaps over the summer passing sessions and both had their ups and downs. Ironi cally, with Kocak throwing and LeSage back catching, Clay was most procient against opposing secondaries. Griner showed off some good passing touch with his reps al beit his reps may have been against second stringers in passing scrimmages. Erstad is the unknown of the quartet with backup reps behind Eason last year, but none through the summer session. For Orange Park, whomever Macpher son nds for quarterback, with underclass men Vinny Walker who had two starts last year in the mix, will have a speedy tailback in Alex Collier (third in 3A 400 meters on track), a rugged full back Zykiem Sermons and the Raiders typically athletic wide re ceivers corps; Sean Dixon (part of Raiders 4 x 400 track state relay team). The Raid ers will have one of the biggest offensive lines with James Rhodes, Silas Littles and Cedrick Flanders all near 300 pounds. Oakleaf High sophomore Walter Simmons Jr., is a seasoned player in a short amount of time and will take control of an explosive unit. Clay High senior Spencer LeSage is a multifunctional player that can throw passes or catch them if the Blue Devils call. St. Johns Country Day School sophomore Max Monroe is a big school sized quarterback in a small school setting. The third Justino to play behind center at Middleburg High will be junior Joe Justino who comes in after big brother Daniel and dad, Robert, left their marks in Bronco land.

With three siblings all state level swimmers and college bound athletes, Orange Park High graduate Jena Zander, Class of 2011, joined the U.S. Air Force to honor her parents and America for allowing her adoption and U.S. citizen ship. After being adopted from China when I was a baby, I realized I had been given so many opportunities to freely pursue any thing I so desire, said Zander, 23. This is truly a great privilege, and I feel the duty to serve my country that I am indebted to and am honored to be a part of. My father was my rst inspiration and he served in the Army from 1972-1975. Zander, who nished second in the 50 freestyle in Class 2A as a senior and eighth in the 100 buttery in 2011, attended Florida State University from 2012-2015 and graduated with two degrees; human resource management and management information systems. From FSU, Zander entered the business world as an informa tion technician for a year. I attended Ofcer Training School at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, AL in August 2016, said Zander, who stills swims but not competitively. I was Commander Zan der for a month for my squadron. I com missioned as a second lieutenant on 28 Oct 2016. Zander, whose siblings included 2008 Class 3A 50 free gold medalist Katherine Zander, now married three years after college basketball stints at Oklahoma and Belmont University and is a physical ther apist assistant; David Zander, Katherines twin, both 25, also a state swimmer in the buttery who attended and swam at Emory University and is in New York as a invest ment banker associate. Oldest brother Jon is in Salem, OR as an IT network technician for the state of Oregon. Zander remembered that swim practic es with iconic swim coach Shawn Delifus, who passed away unexpectedly two years ago, were a bit more taxing than her mili tary training. Swim practice with Coach Shawn was denitely worse, said Zander. Ofcer training school did train me to how oper ate under stressful environments. Currently stationed at Los Angeles AFB, Zander is working as an acquisition ofcer. Im a program manager for the GPS III missions with SpaceX, said Zander. Ill be pinning on rst lieutenant in October this year. Zander got second in 2011 in the 50 free in 24.08 seconds with the winning time at 24.01. She was eighth in the 100 buttery the same year and, in her previ ous three years, she was a part of numer ous state relay teams for Orange Park.

Dressel, with a 47.17 mark that stands as the American record set at the FINA World Championships almost a year ago to the day, had the second fastest opening 50 meters, but fell off the pace quickly to nish in 48.50 with winner Blake Pieroni taking the gold medal in 48.08.

Dressel nished ahead of Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian in the 50 free with the top three all timed un der 22 seconds. Dressel holds the Ameri can record at 21.15.

FLEMING ISLAND PLANTATION COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DISTRICTNOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER THE ADOPTION OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2018/2019 BUDGET; NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER THE IMPOSITION OF OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS, ADOPTION OF AN ASSESSMENT ROLL, AND THE LEVY, COLLECTION, AND ENFORCEMENT OF THE SAME; AND NOTICE OF REGULAR BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING. Upcoming Public Hearings, and Regular Meeting The Board of Supervisors (Board) for the Fleming Island Plantation Community Development District (District) will hold the following two public hearings and a regular meeting: The rst public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, to receive public comment and objections on the Districts proposed budget (Proposed Budget) for the scal year beginning October 1, 2018 and ending September 30, 2019 (Fiscal Year 2018/2019). The second public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapters 190 and 197, Florida Statutes, to consider the imposition of opera tions and maintenance special assessments (O&M Assessments) upon the lands located within the District, to fund the Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2018/2019; to consider the adoption of an assessment roll; and, to provide for the levy, collection, and enforcement of assessments. At the conclusion of the hearings, the Board will, by resolution, adopt a budget and levy O&M Assessments as nally approved by the Board. A Board meeting of the Dis trict will also be held where the Board may consider any other District business. Description of Assessments The District imposes O&M Assessments on bene tted property within the District for the purpose of funding the Districts general administrative, operations, and maintenance budget and providing the funds necessary to pay debt service on outstanding bonds as re ected in the Districts debt service budget. A geographic depiction of the property potentially subject to the proposed O&M Assessments is identi ed in the map attached hereto. The table below shows the schedule of the proposed O&M Assessments, which are subject to change at the hearing: The proposed O&M Assessments as stated include collection costs and/or early payment discounts, which Clay County ( County) may impose on assessments that are collected on the County tax bill. Moreover, pursuant to Section 197.3632(4), Florida Statutes, the lien amount shall serve as the maximum rate authorized by law for O&M Assessments, such that no assessment hearing shall be held or notice provided in future years unless the assessments are proposed to be increased or another criterion within Section 197.3632(4), Florida Statutes, is met. Note that the O&M Assessments do not include any debt s ervice assessments previously levied by the District and due to be collected for Fiscal Year 2018/2019. For Fiscal Year 2018/2019, the District intends to have the County tax collector collect the assessments imposed on property within the District. It is important to pay your assessment because failure to pay will cause a tax certi cate to be issued against the property which may res ult in loss of title, or for direct billed assessments, may result in a foreclosure action, which also may result in a loss of title. The Districts decision to collect assess ments on the tax roll or by direct billing does not preclude the District from later electing to collect those or other assessments in a di erent manner at a future time. Additional Provisions The public hear ings and meeting are open to the public and will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Florida law. A copy of the Proposed Budget, proposed assessment roll, and the agenda for the hearings and meeting may be obtained at the o ces of the District Manager, located at Inframark, 175 Hampton Point Drive, Suite 4, St. Augustine, Florida 32092 Ph: 904-940-6044 (District Managers O ce), during normal business hours.

Upcoming Public Hearings, and Regular Meeting The Board of Supervisors ( Board ) for the Two Creeks Community Development District (District) will hold the following two public hearings and a regular meeting: DATE: August 22, 2018TIME: 6:00 p.m. LOCATION: Courtyard by Marriott, 610 Wells Road, Orange Park, FL 32073 The rst public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, to receive public comment and objections on the Districts proposed budget (Proposed Budget) for the scal year beginning October 1, 2018 and ending September 30, 2019 (Fiscal Year 2018/2019). The second public hearing is being held pursuant to Chapters 190 and 197, Florida Statutes, to consider the imposition of o perations and maintenance special assessments (O&M Assessments) upon the lands located within the District, to fund the Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2018/2019; to consider the adoption of an assessment roll; and, to provide for the levy, collection, and enforcement of assessments. At the conclusion of the hearings, the Board will, by resolution, adopt a budget and levy O&M Assessments as nally approved by the Board. A Board meeting of the District will also be held where the Board may consider any other District business. Description of Assessments The District imposes O&M Assessments on bene tted property within the District for the purpose of funding the Districts gene ral administrative, operations, and maintenance budget and providing the funds necessary to pay debt service on outstanding bonds as re ected in the Districts debt service budget. A geographic depiction of the property potentially subject to the proposed O&M Assessme nts is identi ed in the map attached hereto. The table below shows the schedule of the proposed O&M Assessments, which are subject to change at the hearing: The proposed O&M Assessments as stated include collection costs and/or early payment discounts, which Clay County ( County) may impose on assessments that are collected on the County tax bill. Moreover, pursuant to Section 197.3632(4), Florida Statutes, the lien amount shall serve as the maximum rate authorized by law for O&M Assessments, such that no assessment hearing shall be held or notice provided in future years unless the assessments are proposed to be increased or another criterion within Section 197.3632(4), F lorida Statutes, is met. Note that the O&M Assessments do not include any debt service assessments previously levied by the District and due to be collected for Fiscal Year 2018/2019. For Fiscal Year 2018/2019, the District intends to have the County tax collector collect the assessments imposed on certain de veloped property, and will directly collect the assessments imposed on the remaining bene tted property by sending out a bill pri or to, or during, November 2018. It is important to pay your assessment because failure to pay will cause a tax certi cate to be issued against the property which may result in loss of title, or for direct billed assessments, may result in a foreclosure action, which also may result in a loss of title. The Districts decision to collect assessments on the tax roll or by direct billing does not preclude the District from later electing to collect those or other assessments in a di erent manner at a future time. Additional Provisions The public hearings and meeting are open to the public and will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Florida law. A copy of the Proposed Budget, proposed assessment roll, and the agenda for the hearings and meeting may be obtained at the o ces of the District Manager, located at Rizzetta & Company, 2806 North Fifth Street, Unit 403, St. Augustine, Florida 32084, (904) 436-627 0 (District Managers O ce ), during normal business hours. The public hearings and meeting may be continued to a date, time, and place to be specied on the record at the hearings or meeting. There may be occasions when sta or board members may participate by speaker telephone.
