Ben Zirbel, 40, a 12-year veteran of the CCCSO, died 3 days after he was involved in an accident while on duty riding his motorcycle. It is very unfortunate that I have a guy whos traveling down the street enforcing traf c laws and fell victim to those laws that he was sworn to enforce,Ž Sheriff Darryl Daniels said during the conference.

During the Aug. 27 school board workshop, the board discussed a consent agenda item that calls for his base salary to receive a supplement in the amount of $28,900. Before he could read the item, however, school board member Mary Bolla jumped in to explain that it wouldnt be right for Davis to read the agenda item.

Every Clay County school is now equipped with a Stop the Bleed kit due to the Region 3 Healthcare Coalition. Stop the Bleed kits are packed with tools to stop heavy bleeding such as tour niquets, gauze and more. All Clay County school faculty members have already un dergone extensive active assailant training which included lessons in how to use the kits. We worked with hospitals, rescue ser vices and EMS in the area to train faculty in how to respond in an active assailant situation and how to stop the bleed with these kits, Region 3 Healthcare Coalition Emergency Preparedness Director Beth Payne said. The trainings began June 21 and now, with school already in session, parents and students can rest easy knowing that not only are all faculty trained to exercise appropriate security response measures in a number of tragic situations, but theyre trained to stop the bleeding that sadly, of ten occurs in such situations as well. According to the Clay County School District Support Services Director Bruce Harvin, the Clay County School District worked with Clay County Emergency Man agement, all Clay County law enforcement agencies and re rescue agencies to con duct active assailant table-top exercises. During these exercises, not only was Teachers trained, schools stocked with Stop the Bleed kits Each of Clay Countys 43 public schools now have a Stop the Bleed kit as part of a program by the Region 3 Healthcare Coalition to deply the kits. Ocials have stocked the kits with items needed in the event a tragedy strikes one of the countys schools. SEE BLEED, 15 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Clay County is one step closer to becoming the home of a 425-acre solar energy center south of the city after a Board of County Commission ers vote. During the Aug. 28 regular BCC meet ing, representatives from Florida Power and Light, the company behind the poten tial solar energy center and Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc., the company helping FPL secure the land in Clay County, ap peared before the board to answer any nal questions the BCC might have before voting to send the FPL application to Talla hassee. These representatives essentially explained to the BCC the information they doled out at a community meeting held last month. As proposed, the 425-acre Magnolia Springs Solar Energy Center would be built south of Green Cove Springs on a parcel of land purchased by FPL near Leno Road and Haller Airpark. This specic solar en ergy center, which is just one of a handful FPL has in Northeast Florida, would pro duce enough energy to power about 15,000 homes. Most of this energy would be going to FPL customers outside of the county as the power company has only about 1,000 Clay County customers. We chose that site because it met all the criteria that we look for to potentially build out our next project, FPL Spokes man Stephen Heiman said at the commu nity meeting held in July. Theres not a timeline for this project just yet, but what youll see across the state is were plan ning ahead to meet those power needs and we routinely purchase parcels that we be lieve will help us meet those needs. According to Heiman, the use of solar energy is growing at a rapid pace. Heiman said FPL is undergoing one of the largest solar expansions in the country and that within the next 15 years, the country will see a much larger integration of solar en ergy into utilities across the country. The solar center would bring 200 to 300 jobs to locals for the 7-to-9-month construction period, and those workers could be making upwards of $18 an hour. When it was time for the BCC to dis cuss the application, the only conversation centered around making the county more BCC approves solar farm plans money off projects like this. I think its a great project and I support it, said County Commissioner Wayne Bol la. The only thing I regret is weve only got so much industrial property in Clay County and were taking 300 acres of [roughly] 1,000 acres and [one] the county enjoys no new jobs out of that and today were going to zone this thing from industrial, which produces more taxes than agriculture, to agriculture. Going forward, I suggest we take a look at possibly coming up with a zoning category for solar farms that ts into the industrial box, so we can at least make a few bucks on this tax-wise, Bolla said. The other three members of the board County Commissioner Gayward Hendry was absent as he was required to be at the elections ofce where he serves on the canvassing board agreed with Bolla. In a 4-0 vote, the BCC amended the Countys 2040 Future Land Use Map from Industrial to Agriculture on 175 acres and from Rural Residential to Agriculture on 165 acres to allow the solar farm to move forward. Be cause this is a transmittal, the BCCs vote isnt the nal say. Now, this goes to Tal lahassee where the state will look over the application and everything else involved. After state approval, theyll send it back to the BCC for a nal vote. If there are is sues with the proposal, the state will send it back to the BCC and FPL to correct any outlying problems to again move forward for nal approval. The next BCC meeting is Sept. 11.

By The Society of Professional Journalists M any of the major newspapers and news organizations across the country are used Thursday, August 16, 2018, to draw attention to a dangerous precedent President Trump has set in calling the news media the enemy of the American people. His threats on freedom of the press began a month after taking ofce. His belittling of journal ists continues today. He has called CNN the worst. He has humiliated journal ist Jim Acosta for his reporting. He has banned a network pool reporter from a Rose Garden event because he did not like her questions. On Monday, the outgoing United Nations hu man rights commissioner said Trumps anti-press rhetoric is very close to incite ment of violence. The Society of Professional JournalistsRegion 3 applauds the Boston Globe for organizing a campaign to denounce the Presidents incessant attacks on the news media. The SPJ Region 3 leadership, in cluding in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Alabama, believes it is equally impor tant for local news outlets to repudiate the onslaught of hostility toward the press. We must stand rm with our brothers and sis ters in journalism as a family, supporting our First Amendment right to report accu rately on our government. In the past several months, weve seen a series of attacks directly from the President and his administration. Through tweets and rally speeches, this President insists on demonizing the press every chance he gets. He has used damaging words such as fake, dishonest, and disgusting to describe the news media. Former Presidents have not always gotten along with the news media, but none have gone so far as to paint the press as the enemy of the American people. A free press is essential to a healthy democracy. Those in power who attempt to stie the press from reporting on cer tain events simply because the reporting is not always positive can be viewed as authoritarian.

I also pray for comfort for the driver of the other vehicle in the crash, Mr. Schioppa, who I know well as a decent, hardworking small business owner. Without detracting in any way from the tragedy of Deputy Zirbels death, this acci dent has caused me to wonder why police ofcers would routinely use motorcycles for patrol duty.

Johnson Orange Park This Week in History 5 years ago, 2013 Associate Medical Examiner Stacey A. Simons, M.D. determined that Clay Coun ty Jail inmate Daniel Joseph Linsinbigler Jr.s death due to asphyxiation was a jus tiable homicide. While stating the death was tragic, Sheriff Rick Beseler declined further comment considering forthcoming litigation. n Despite growing public opposition, the Board of County Commissioners voted By Wesley LeBlanc T his past weekend, over a dozen competitors gathered at the GLHF Game Bar at the Jacksonville Landing to compete in a Madden 19 competition. Two people were shot dead while another 12 were injured either by a bullet or while trying to run away from a bullet at the competition. As I sat on my couch Saturday play ing video games, I sat with a smile on my face. Some 30 miles away, competi tors from around the country sat in chairs in downtown Jack sonville doing the same thing. Later that night, I munched on some candy while watching a movie with my wife. For those people that sat in chairs playing video games in down town Jacksonville, later that night, theyd nd themselves in a hospital and in the case of two of those people, dead. Dead. Thats a striking word, isnt it? Dead. Before this past weekend, dead was an easy word to use. I used it to describe enemies in the games I was playing. Id use it to describe people I never knew. Ive never experienced a death in my family. No longer can I say that. No, I didnt lose a family member as a result of the tragedy that occurred this past weekend but my world, the video game world, did. In fact, we lost two and we lost those two at the hands of one of our own. Two people that I have never met, and likely never would have, but through video games, knew so very well, are now dead. I know most of you reading this are likely quite unfamiliar with video games. You know what your chosen TV media channel anchors have told you. Video games are bad, theyll say. Video games cause violence, they ex pound, with no real facts to back it up, save for a few choice studies that hap pen to somewhat align with their think ing despite the fact that there are thou sands more proving them wrong. Dont let your child play video games. And lets not forget to point out the fact that the game this shooter was in Jacksonville to play, Madden 19, is a game about football, Americas mostbeloved sport. Ive played video games as long as I can remember. I still play them today, more now than ever. Im married, I have a social life, I graduated high school as sixth in my class and I have a bachelors degree with plans to obtain a masters. I have never been to jail. In fact, the only trouble Ive ever caused the police is my occasional speeding. You see, video games never brought about anything negative in me. I kill thousands of enemies in video games with guns, melee weapons and even bare hands. I lay waste to entire planets. I scream and I shout as my characters body grows covered in the blood of my enemies and still, I live a fairly normal life. How can I play such violent games (and mind you, violent games are only a fraction of the types of games I play) and not grow violent myself? Well, as any of the fellow millions upon millions of gamers in this world will tell you, its because we know games arent reality theyre simply technological interactions

Those who abuse their power in an attempt to reduce the legitimacy of the press most certainly have something to hide. The First Amendment gives freedom to the press to cover and report on stories important to their communities. When the President calls news organizations … and in some case, speci c journalists … fake,Ž he is committing a serious affront to the rights of reporters and news organizations across the country. Hes also denying United States citizens the truth. Using his words against a right granted in the First Amendment is irresponsible and undemocratic. Furthermore, if the press reported only positive news about his administration and the President, these news organizations would be nothing more than a White House public relations rm. The press has a job to do … in Washington, in our state and in our neighborhoods. Newspapers and TV stations shed light on corruption and issues to help the American people make informed decisions. Their reporting allows us to make sense of the world around us. We are able to understand issues surrounding healthcare, money matters and social injustices. We must work even harder to call out those who demonize our industry, including the President. If the President can get away it, other leaders may see an opening to treat journalists the same way. When the press comes under attack by simply asking questions, our democracy is threatened. Again, it runs counter to what our Founding Fathers intended. The Supreme Court, on numerous occasions, has explicitly expressed in court rulings the incumbent responsibility of the press to be watchdogs of government. It is, after all, a journalists job to question authority. Indeed, Justices in the 1964 New York Times v. Sullivan case recognized the press must be protected in order to further debate on issues of public importance. In the Pentagon Papers case in 1971, the Justices said that any prior restraint on the press was fundamentally undemocratic. One could take that decision to mean that any tactic to prevent a journalist from doing his or her job … through physical attacks and intimidation … would be unconstitutional. As citizens, we hope you recognize the important role of journalists. The Society of Professional Journalists Region 3 stands in solidarity with news organizations across the country, demanding our nations leaders understand that democracy cannot exist without a free press. We also ask leaders in the Republican Party to denounce President Trumps assailing of the news media. Journalism is important to our country. It starts at the local level with your mayor and city council. That respect for journalism should extend from your statehouse all the way to the White House. Unless journalists stand up against these attacks, our democracy is in for a perilous future.

Yes, there are bad apples in the video game world, but there are bad apples everywhere. You see, video games arent the cause of this shooting. In fact, video games have nothing to do with it. Video games simply happened to be there. This shooter could have been a football player that lost on the eld, a fry cook that dropped yet another patty … he could have been anybody doing anything. The problem isnt that this guy was a video gamer (and one who competes professionally for more money than youd guess). Its that something wasnt right in his head. Healthy people dont kill other people like this. This man was not healthy. We dont know of a motive yet, but we do know that clearly something wasnt right. Maybe he was bullied throughout his life. Maybe his parents were abusive. Maybe he was depressed. Maybe he felt alone in this vast world. Maybe he was misunderstood as an individual and as a result, isolated from the rest of the society. Regardless of what it was, I can promise you video games were not something negative in his life … theres a good chance video games were the only positive in his life actually. Still though, whatever he had previously endured, whatever he felt, whatever was going on in his mind, he wasnt OK and as a result, lashed out at the world in the most sickening way. And this isnt a defense for him. What he did was terrible, and he has left a dark mark on this world that will never disappear. This is, however, an opportunity to examine questions that need to be answered. Why did he do this? How did he become someone capable of that? Could it have been prevented? Ive been to that game bar. My best friends have been to that game bar. That could have been me shot dead or at least injured. That could have been my friends shot dead or at least injured. Next time I go there, will I sit in a chair that someone died in? Will I walk on a oor that was covered in blood this past weekend? Will I exit a door safely and calmly that so many ran out of Saturday, praying and hoping that a bullet didnt nd their back? My bones hurt. They ache for the video game community, for Jacksonville, for those injured and for those who died and not just because of the pain … they are wrought with guilt America should be feeling today. This man needed help and we failed him. Our country failed him. The United States of America, dubbed the greatest place on earth, failed to see that something wasnt OK with this man and as a result, we failed to stop a man from becoming a shooter. And guess what? The guns protected by the Second Amendment failed to stop the shooter as well. And while were here, why is a man clearly encumbered with mental illness able to get his hands on a gun? For far too long weve looked at these shooters as isolated incidents but that simply isnt the case. Theres a trend with these shooters, and its not what you think: theyre male and theyre white. Thats not to say that all white people or all males, or all white males, are shooters or will be shooters. Its simply an observation that shouldnt be ignored. There are those that would rather cast aside these people who need help, these people desperate for mental solitude, these people crying for someone, anyone, to come to their aid, than acknowledge that this country has a problem. We Americans, we humans, need to be better. We need to help those in need. We need to love, nurture and help our neighbors, regardless of who they are, how they act, how they were born, how they live and how they simply exist. To do otherwise would be hypocritical across whatever religion or virtues you subscribe to, that is, unless your religion (or lack thereof) or virtues dictates the evilest emotion of hate. We cant continue to cast aside those society has forgotten … we must welcome them in with open arms, less they reach the darkest depths imaginable, depths dark enough to tell a person that committing the most atrocious of crimes … a mass shooting … is the only solution. I dont know why this man shot those people, but I do know that something was wrong with him, something that America could have maybe xed. If we really are the greatest country in the world, we should be able to x this, right? After every shooting, my mind goes back to an Onion article that explains this country so well: No Way To Prevent This, Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens.Ž How can this nation prevent another shooting? Everyone, open your eyes. Research. There are signs that shooters like these demonstrate throughout their life. Look for those signs and when you spot them, dont turn your back. Acknowledge them and talk with them. Ask that person if they need help. Get that person the help they crave. Be the American we all act like we already are. And while were at it, how about installing some common-sense laws to prevent people, like this shooter, who clearly shouldnt be in possession of a rearm, from obtaining one. I hope one day the USA solves its shooter problem. I dont know how to solve it, but I know how to help, and I worded that as best as I could above. Maybe its less guns. Maybe its mental health education in our schools. Maybe its free therapy. Maybe its a mix of it all and more, but not even one of us has the power to make any of that change alone. Together though, we do. Together, we can stop the senseless killing of lives that happens far too often. Together, we can be better. Its time to stop casting blame and time to start helping.

I am honored to serve the children of Clay County, said Bullock at an election night celebration in Orange Park. Condon defeated Bullock in 2104 after Bullock was elected in 2012 to complete former school board member Charlie Van Zant Jr.s term on the school board. Bullock, a long-time Clay County educa tor, retired from the district as principal of Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High School. Bullock teamed up on the campaign trail with incumbent Janice Kerekes and political newcomer Lynne Hirabayashi Chafee under the moniker of JLT. Chafee, a Guardian ad Litem childrens advocate, will be in a runoff in November with rst-term District 5 school board member incumbent Ashley Gilhousen, the top two vote getters in a three-way race. Gilhousen received 18,397 votes, Chafee received 11,134 and Travis Christensen received 8,158. In the next 10 weeks, were going to hit it hard and were going to make it happen, Chafee said. Chafee, whose adult children grew up attending Clay County public schools, said she is determined to help continuing to im prove the lives of children and thats why she got in the race. Children are my passion. I want to give back. I dont like whats going on and we can sit and talk about it or you can do something, and I just decided to do some thing, Chafee said. Meanwhile, District 1 school board incumbent Kerekes defeated Latanya Pe terson by a vote of 22,103 or 57.75 percent to 16,171 or 42.25 percent of the vote. Its really excit ing that everyone came out and voted for me again its humbling, it really is, Kerekes said. Its an honor to do what we do and serve our community, so Im really and truly blessed. People got out and worked so hard for me and I couldnt do it without them, I really couldnt. Kerekes was one of the school board members who fought for the one-mill at the same time she was up for re-election. She said it was a risk she was willing to take to improve safety for the students. The children, the school district thats the real winner here. Were going to be able to go forward and have the re source ofcers we need, Kerekes said. The one mill increase is estimated to bring in $10 million a year, half of which is the estimated cost of arming each of the districts 42 schools with trained ofcers, a state requirement in the aftermath of the February shooting spree at Marjory Stone man Douglas High in Parkland, Florida. This is the voters they spoke up and said they value public education and they are willing to increase their property taxes to cover the expense of public education, Kerekes said. While he was involved in the election only as an observer, School Superinten dent Addison Davis said he agrees with Kerekes statement that the students won this election. Overall, I think the kids were the win ners. I say that because openly and hon estly, I didnt know if the millage was going to pass, but we did a good job educating the community on how the money was going to be spent, Davis said. Davis said the tax will not be collected for the rst time until December 2019 and the school district will not have possession of the funds until January 2020 at the ear liest, so it will still be up to the district to fund school security with normal sources up until that time. Its my job, when I work with the board, to make sure we are scally responsible to develop a balanced mechanism to use the funding properly within the organiza tion, Davis said. I am grateful and thank ful for our constituents now its time to be extremely strategic and intentional so our community can see the return on their investment. Davis said once the one mill funds come in, he will prepare a report to the commu nity that will explain where the funds have been spent so there will be transparency on the issue. Teachers mobilized to help campaign for Kerekes, Chafee and Bullock. Renna Lee Paiva, president of the Clay County Education Association, the union that rep resents public school teachers, echoed Kerekes and Davis sentiments on the election results. The real winners were the children of Clay County they were real winners. We got the taxes and the raise in the millage and thats exactly what we wanted to hap pen because thats how we can have se curity for the kids sounder security and also help with the operations, Paiva said. I mean Mr. Davis walked into a situa tion where there was $300 million worth of repairs [needed] in our school system. No one has ever done the infrastructure and thats what we need to do. The general election is Tuesday, No vember 6, 2018. Winners from page 1 Tina Bullock Janice Kerekes

10 CLAY TODAY AUGUST 30 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM A school district [Previous Superinten dent David Owens] had the supplement. [Previous Superintendent Charlie Van Zant Jr.] had the supplement if Im not mistaken his rst year and I know after that it was stopped...looking at the way our school system went a few years during that time, also, I didnt feel that it was earned. In this situa tion, youve been on the job now for 20 months...and we have come up to an A school district and back to where we were when I rst started teach ing which was 17 years ago and were now eighth in the state and its through the leadership youve created and that youve brought to us that weve been able to do this, Bolla said. While Bolla was quick to agree that Da vis deserved the supplement, School Board Chairman Carol Studdard entered the con versation with trepidation. According to Studdard, despite her open support of Da vis, shes wary of the idea of a supplement in general due to the controversial history of supplements in Clay County. Every time the administrators got a raise, they were given a raise to that sup plement, Studdard said. ...it came to my attention that the supplement, all those years, was being given raises and a $3,000 supplement was now $28,900. I think a supplement is appropriate, Studdard said. What my concern is for is the amount. What I want to know is what is that sweet-spot number. According to the Director of Profes sional Learning, School Choice and Char ters, and Leadership Development Kath leen Moeller, the amount of $28,900 is the sweet spot number. Moeller said that because of Davis skills as an education leader, he has consistently received what amounts to poaching offers to get him to discontinue his work for Clay and instead Board from page 1 take up work in a different area, and this supplement combined with his salary is the districts way to keep Davis around. Davis, though, while grateful to poten tially receive the supplement, said he ran for this position knowing hed be taking a pay cut and regardless, his focus would still be Clay County students. From my side, I want to be in Clay County ... and while it may be uncomfort able for you, I did run and take a position that was elected and then take a pay cut, Davis said. I did because I wanted to work for Clay County and I want to be in Clay County for a long time. I will, regardless of what you do, continue to work hard for the kids in Clay County every single day. The Assistant Superintendent for Hu man Resources David Broskie, joined the discussion to explain that Davis is one of the lowest-paid su perintendents in the surrounding areas and actually makes less than the Clay County School Su perintendent made in 2006. Before the dis cussion was over, Studdard raised concerns that the public might view the supplement as a negative due to its proximity to the one mill increase vote and suggested it come up at a later date. If this supplement is given to Davis, it would not be paid from any money raised from the millage increase and is a part of an annual budget item the school board must vote on each year, at the school boards discretion. While the school board agreed to save the major discussion for the upcoming regular school board meeting on Sept. 6, school board members Ashley Gilhousen, Betsy Condon and Janice Kerekes re mained mostly silent for the majority of the conversation. Neither of the three voiced if they were in favor of the supplement or not. At the upcoming meeting, the board will have to vote to approve the supplement, a policy enacted a few years ago after past superintendents received supplements au tomatically. The supplements were put into Mary Bolla Carol Studdard Obituaries Benjamin LeMont Zirbel Benjamin LeMont Zirbel died on August 21, 2018 from injuries sustained while performing his duty as Deputy for the Clay County Sheriffs Department.

According to Harvin, all faculty are instructed to incorporate belts, under shirts and ties into their attire as each of these clothing pieces can act as a resource to stop extensive bleeding. For example, if a tourniquet isnt around, a teacher could use their belt. As of now, there are 258 kits in all pub lic Clay County schools with each school receiving a number of kits based on stu dent population. Payne said there were an additional number of kits given to Clay County to put into public buildings. The Region 3 Healthcare Coalition of cials hope to see multiple kits in every public building such as the Clay County Courthouse and more. The Northeast Florida Healthcare Coalition distributed around 3,000 Stop the Bleed kits to 18 counties. Each county is free to determine how best to utilize their given kits, too. For example, one county might have a history with situations where kids end up bleeding on a school bus. That county might equip all school buses with a Stop the Bleed kit. Despite each countys decision, every countys school will be equipped with kits. Theres different approaches happen ing in each county but at the end of the day, at least every school in a given county will have multiple kits, Payne said. According to Payne, the Region 3 Healthcare Coalition is one of three in North Florida and one of 15 in Florida. The focus of each coalition is to provide disas ter help for the healthcare communities within in county, which began as a national initiative following the Sandy Hook school shooting. The help each coalition provides comes in many forms such as training, funding and more. Each $40 Stop the Bleed kit was purchased by the State of Florida using funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One of the main priorities for Clay County, other than having the right re sources within each kit, was the expiration date. According to Payne, it was important for the countys school district to receive kits that are lled with supplies that dont expire. According to Clay County Emergency Management Director John Ward, while nobody hopes to have to use the kits, teach ers and staffers were thankful and happy to learn how to use the Stop the Bleed kits. Obviously, none of us ever want to see these things used but if a tragic situation ever occurs, we are all trained in how to best handle the situation and how to use these kits, Ward said. Theres different approaches happening in each county but at the end of the day, at least every school in a given county will have multiple kits.

It was after I took a humanities class I really started to get really interested in a lot of the history that were not really taught in school, said Slader. Slader says that writing for him is more of a compulsion. I cant not write, its just something that I do, that I need to do and Im super thankful that Ive stumbled into a way to, potentially, make some money at it, said Slader. Slader eventually reached out to Se attle author Ben Thompson, creator of Badass of the Week blog and author of the Guts and Glory book series. Slader wanted advice on writing his own book and the two soon formed a friendship and fans of both writers felt that they should col laborate. Thompson is now the co-author of Epic Fail. Seeing things take off has been amaz ing, said Thompson via email, its so sat isfying seeing kids and adults across the country posting pictures with the books or sending in kind words telling us how much theyve enjoyed our work. Slader wanted to focus on the failures of history because he feels this is just as important as the success. I always thought we learn from our failures, said Slader. As for what inspired me to write the Epik Fails of History blog, its because history is often told by the win ners, so I thought itd be fun to write about the losers, plus theres usually more to learn from them. Slader had his own share of failures as he received nearly 20 rejection letters be fore he nally found a publisher, Roaring Brook Press. It was one of the greatest moments of my life, said Slader. This week, the writing duo were invited to appear at a signing at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. this January. Slader said he wants anyone aspiring to write to keep at it and see how his own failures eventually led to success. Just keep writing, dont give up, said Slader. Slader and Thompson have two more books in the Epic Fails series that are coming out next year. Not-So-Great Presidents: Commanders in Chief will be released January 15, 2019 and The Age of Exploration: Totally Getting Lost will come out April 16, 2019.

One such employer is the Clay County School District, which held a job fair at the Orange Park Mall last weekend to try and ll a number of open bus driver positions. The school district is looking to ll twelve to fteen positions as its need for bus drivers grows. Derald Sweatt, director of Transporta tion for the Clay County School District, said that they are looking to ll as many positions as possible. The need for new bus drivers comes as the unemployment rate in Clay County seems to continue dropping as the national and state economy improves. According to the Florida Department of Economic Op portunity, unemployment in Clay County as of July was 3.6 percent, a drop from 4.1 percent from the same period a year ago. The school district is offering to pay for the Commercial Drivers License training to those who are hired. The state of Florida requires a class-B CDL to drive a school bus. CDLcareernow.com says that this type of training can cost between $1,500 to $8,000 depending on the school. Driv er pay ranges from $12.65 to $14.60 per hour. The school district is also offering a $1,000 training bonus as an incentive after a person has been driving for 90 days. He said they would like applicants to have at least 7 years of driving experience. So, is the school districts creative hir ing method just one of many organizations are using to nd good employees? Whats the whole story? Candace Moody, vice president of com munication for Fleming Island-based Ca reerSource Northeast Florida, said that while unemployment is low, it may not be telling the whole story. She said that a big problem in the current job market is un deremployment. She said that people will work multiple part time jobs rather than working a full-time job. This is a new trend that is starting to pop-up more and more as the job market becomes tighter. Employers are feeling the pain of a very tight market, said Moody. She added that its now on the employers rather than applicants to attract candidates to their positions. Moody believes this is a trend we can expect to see more often as the market be comes even tighter. Sweatt said bus driver jobs are ideal for stay-at-home parents. They work when their kid is at school and they are off when they are not in school, said Sweatt. School district looking for a few good drivers Clay County School ocials are looking for a few good drivers for its transportation department. The district held a job fair at the Orange Park Mall on Aug. 25 in hopes of nding their ideal candidate single mothers.

GRAND OPENING! r fn tb r rrfr ntbbnfbbnbbbfr bbbbbnbbbbn r fntb t nfn By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS After reviewing several grant applications for marketing funds, the Clay County Tourist Develop ment Council recently unveiled a list of events and organizations it is recommend ing for top funding in the coming year. Not only do the grant applicants need to detail how the grant funds will be used, but upon receiving a grant, each event must use that money exclusively for marketing itself outside of Clay County. Each year, the majority of dollars are allocated to three big events dubbed Signature Events while the money leftover is split among a number of smaller events in Clay County. The Signature Events this year are the Orange Park Fall Festival, which will re ceive $15,000, the Scottish Games, which will receive $30,000 and the Clay Coun ty Agricultural Fair, which will receive $45,000. Each grant was approved at the TDCs regular Aug. 22 meeting. The three events are funded from a budget line item of $125,000, with $35,000 to be split up among smaller Clay County events. There will be remaining dollars there for us to use in the event that another sig nature event comes through, said Kimber ly Morgan, Clay County tourism director. From there, the TDC voted to approve another 12 smaller events whose grant totals equate to almost $28,000. One of these events, the American Junior Golf As sociation Junior Golf Tournament, which will bring in nearly 300 visitors to Clay County, is new grant recipient for Clay County tourism. We dont really advertise it [for locals] because it brings in so many people from outside the area, said Adam Rodgers, American Junior Golf Association repre sentative. We have people from all over the country come to this event. Morgan reminded the council before they voted to approve the grants that each events attendees will be looking for a place to sleep, which drives them to Clay County hotels. After this, the conversation was busi ness as usual as Morgan continued down the list of events set to receive grants and the amounts they were set to receive, as suming the TDC voted to do so. Hoots for Heroes Sound-Off will re ceive $2,000. Moosehavens American Pride Fourth of July and annual Chili Cook-Off will receive $3,500 each. Key Tourist Council approves marketing grants stone Heights Our Country Day Fourth of July Celebration and the Our Country Day Street Dance will receive $1,750 and $1,500, respectively. The annual Christmas on Walnut in Green Cove Springs will receive $1,500 and the Green Cove Springs Memorial Day Riverfest will receive $1,500 as well. The Soul Food Festival will receive $1,500 as well. Both the Run, Rock and Roll and Ca lavida Arts festival will receive $2,000 each and nally, the Concert on the Green and Orange Park Kids Festival will receive SEE GRANTS, 21

The $15,000 grant will fund 150 meals for Charles E. Bennett Elementary students who have been identied as constantly hungry. The funds are derived from Clay Electric Cooperatives Operation Round Up Program that began in October 2016, which was designed to promote cooperative values and principles through its Concern for Community. The program rounds up participating members bills to the nearest dollar, and that tax-deductible amount is donated to local charities. Since its inception, Operation Round Up has funded $1.4 million in grants to organizations in the co-ops 14county service area. Every weekend, children across Clay County go hungry. Maggies Meals formerly Blessings in a Backpack was started by the Womens Club in 2012. The food includes nutritious, easy-to-prepare, ready-to-eat foods, like granola bars, juice boxes, mac and cheese, and oatmeal that will feed one child over the weekend. Maggies Meals also sends home food for their siblings. When the students return to school on Monday, they are fully nourished and excited about learning. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of programs like these. Since 2001, the Magnolia Point Womens Club has given $400,476 to those in need, primarily in Green Cove Springs and Clay County. From left are, Maggies Meals Assistant Chairman Jaci Shields, MPWC President Cher yle Newman, Clay Electric Foundation representative Steve Hollingsworth, Maggies Meals Chairman Pam Brame, MPWC Grants Co-Chairman Betty Alix. Good Deeds o d D D In Clay County $1,500 and $1,950 accordingly. For each of these events, the TDC voted to approve these grant amounts unanimous ly. The meeting ended with a discussion that started with the Board of County Com missioners. According to Morgan, the BCC asked the TDC to grant a special request for the Military Museum of North Florida. [The BCC] requested that the Tourism Development Council consider funding a grant for nonprots that was traditionally distributed out of the general fund, Morgan said. [They proposed] to shift that from the general fund to the TDC. The Military Museum requested $10,000 which, according to Morgan, will come out of the TDCs Product Development budget line because the funds will not be used for mar keting but for development of the museum, which needs to repair parts of its building. My thought is, is that the $10,000 being granted on a yearly basis by the board, this is much more closer to what we do than what they do, County Commissioner and Chair man of the TDC, Mike Cella, said. As part of [the Military Museums] request, were go ing to ask for a chair on their board Cella brought up the point that John Whisenant of North Star Destination Strate gies, who recently brought the board their rst draft of a strategic plan, said Clay County should hone in on its military history as its a major draw for visitors and tourists coming in. Because of this, and because the Mili tary Museum of North Florida is a large facilitator of the countys history, Cella be lieves the TDC should approve the BCCs request. After a few minutes of discussion, the TDC voted 9-0 to approve the museums $10,000 request.

Harlow Agriculture & Natural Resources Agent GREEN COVE SPRINGS The calls I re ceive usually go like this: I just bought a few acres in Clay County and want to grow something what can I do with it? And my answer is usually in the form of several questions as I try to gure out their desires and drive to grow crops. It really depends on many factors, but if they are looking to grow, sell and prot from the crop production, I usually suggest they look into an alternative crop as our proximity to urban outlets is an advantage for niche markets. So, what are some alternative crop options? A lot of attention has been focused on certain primary alternatives like shitake mush rooms, sunowers, rice, olives, blueber ries, honey and even hops. Hydroponic food production (growing produce without soil), has become increasingly popular, es pecially on a small-scale production. Whether you are interested in diver sifying your income or just plain curious about trying to grow a new crop, it is very important to understand several factors before you make the jump. The following step-by-step approach can help you evalu ate ways you can make a few extra bucks on your small parcel of land. First, make sure there is local and re gional interest in your product. Unlike con ventional commodity markets which are well-known, many new or alternative crops markets may not be stable or may not exist PHOTO COURTESY UF/IFAS UF/IFAS researcher Zhanao Deng is researching the viability of Florida hops at the Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Balm, Florida. Turn dirt into dollars with an alternative crop yet. Establishing relationships with poten tial buyers may be the key to testing your product for success or failure. Second, do your homework on the al ternative crop you want to explore. Under stand the growing habits and the manage ment requirements. Also understand that there are reasons why certain plants and crops are not grown in Florida, due to envi ronmental and geographical reasons. A good example of this is Hops, which is responsible for the bittering, avoring, and aroma of beer. The largest producing states of hops have been in the northern states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, however, there is now interest in locally grown Florida hops for home brewers and craft breweries. Floridas geographical location pos sesses some difculty to growing hops which is affected by day length and avail able light for photosynthesis. Florida hops production is somewhat less than optimal when compared to hops production in the northern states, but UF/IFAS researchers have found that hops production in Flori da is possible and are working to develop management recommendations for this new alternative crop. Understanding your specic crops benets and challenges will give you a better understanding of how to manage your crop and how to plan for suc cess. Third, understand that starting a new enterprise or diversifying your business needs to be carefully planned. I have seen many start-ups fail because they havent had a plan. An important part of starting a new venture is developing a business plan which is a road map to guide the future development of the business. Typically, al ternative crops are labor intensive. Many farmers have been extremely successful and protable starting into new markets; olive oil, Florida grown hops, pomegranates, crop mazes and farm wed dings venues. There is an allure to starting something new, but by doing a little home work and spending a little time to under stand what you are about to embark on will save you money in the long run and make your new enterprise more protable. If you are interested in exploring your options, growing an alternative crop, or need production advice contact Luke Har low at the Clay County Extension Ofce at 904-284-6355 or harlow1231@u.edu.

I dont want to be morbid, but it is just a fact. We all know that we are only mor tals. So, this statement does not surprise anyone. Death is a part of life. The Bible states it clearly. Hebrews 9:27 says every person has an appointment with death. Since we all face this certainty, let me say some things we all need to know about death. You do not need to fear death. The reason we do not fear death is that Jesus conquered it when He rose from the tomb. Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? 1 Cor. 15:54-55 His resurrection gives us the hope of eternal life with Him. Death is a promo tion for those who trust in the victorious sacrice of our Lord Jesus. Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Cor. 15:57 Death is a transition. The Apostle made it clear. Absent from the body; present with the Lord. (2 Cor. 5:8) If we are alive at the Second Coming of our Lord, we will be caught up in the Rapture. That is a transition from mortal to immortal. The death of the physical body is the same transition. Death is a promotion. If you read the New Testament as a believer, the fear of the unknown drops out of sight. The Lord provides us with abundant assurances that Heaven is a better place than this earth. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. 2 Cor. 2:9 NLT n www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org Community News Scholarship to honor Deputy Ben Zirbel PALATKA St. Johns River State College has established the Deputy Ben Zirbel Memorial Scholarship to remember and honor the SJR State alumnus who lost his life while serving in the line of duty in an early morning trafc accident on Aug. 19.

Anne Ochsner By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS If fully put in place, a new strategic plan for the local tourism sector is set to take Clay County to new heights. Nashville-based North Star Destination Strategies presented the plan Aug. 22 at a Tourist Development Council. Over the summer, John Whisenant of North Star Destination Strategies conduct ed several community-outreach meetings where interested parties and residents met and discussed the aspects of Clay County that currently makes it unique. Some of the most popular responses included the areas access to the St. Johns River, the countys ecosystem-based activities such as hiking and overall and the small-town USA feel. I took all of the information back, crunched all of that information, crunched all of the research provided to me by [Clay County Director of Tourism Kimberly Mor gan]...and everything within the strategic plan is based on that research, Whisenant said. After conducting his tour around the county, Whisenant returned home to re view what he had learned, with the goal to return later with a strategic plan based on his ndings. Whisenants 75-page report rst broke down Clay Countys weaknesses, the great est opportunities within and the largest looming threats. The weaknesses were trafc and infrastructure, as well as the lack of public transportation. Of those, he found the lack of public transportation, es pecially for visitors, to be the most glar ing weakness. According to Whisenant, an areas tourism can end at that point, es pecially if visitors dont have a way to get around easily, they might not ever return. Despite that lack of public transporta tion, Whisenant said Clay County is primed to expand its tourism industry with the completion of the First Coast Expressway, which will not only lessen the impact of the weaknesses in the countys infrastructure and resulting trafc but will give passersby an easy way to get here. Whisenant said that the county should consider exploring a sports complex of sorts, akin to something like that found in Lake City or Disneys Wide World of Sports. Whisenant said these complexes can bring in hundreds of people in that not only are the athletes going to be coming to the county, but theyll bring their friends and families to watch as well. ...and all of those people need a place to eat and to sleep, Whisenant said. Whisenant said a threat is the possible loss of the small-town feel and how that could happen if the county doesnt work to preserve it. People need to see reasons to actually stop in Clay County instead of just passing by, Whisenant said. From here, Whisenant spent the next two hours dissecting the moves he believes Clay Countys tourism sector needs to make to elevate itself as a viable sector of the areas economy. He rst began by read ing a proposed Clay County destination vi sion statement, which Whisenant believed best summed up what the areas tourism should stand for. Clay County is the destination of choice for visitors seeking a unique Florida experience: charming small towns, abun dant natural and cultural resources, out standing recreational opportunities, and welcoming and friendly people, the pro posed vision statement read. Thats what you want Clay County to be in the visitors mind, Whisenant said. It also explains that you are a destination of choice. Youre not just an add-on, not just a, well, were on our way from Jackson ville to St. Augustine so we might as well drive through Clay County,. You want to be a destination of choice. To bring the plan to life, Whisenant pre sented actions to make it all happen. The rst step is to acquire the services of an agency of record, or basically, marketers. Instead of relying internally to get the word out, Whisenant said the TDC needs to hire a dedicated set of people who will work to market Clay County as a destination for people to visit. Alongside that, Whisenant said the TDC needs a comprehensive and annual marketing plan to not only keep the countys tourism marketing in check and focused, but also to ensure that yearly goals are being met. And nally, Whisenant said the TDC simply needs to spend more money on advertising. Aside from marketing, Whisenant gave the TDC some goals he believes they need to hit. The rst is more staff. Currently, its essentially just Morgan working fulltime on area tourism. With added help, naturally, more can get done. From there, the countys tourism sector needs to work more closely with media and inuencers, according to Whisenant. Along with this, he said the county needs a greater social media presence and should adopt something along the lines of an electronic newsletter to let people out side of Clay County know whats happening here. All of these things work together to get the word out about Clay County, Whisenant said. TDC Chairman, County Commissioner Mike Cella rst asked if Clay County even has enough to market, to which Whisenant responded with a resounding yes. From there, members of the TDC, such as Or ange Park Council Member Connie Thom as, suggested things Clay County could add to advance its tourism sector. She suggest ed the creation of an Old Florida tour that would take guests from Clay County to St. Augustine and all the way to Winter Park. We really are the gateway for that en tire scenic tour, Thomas said. We need to meet with neighboring communities and say, I think we have a brand here that to gether, we can really develop. Whisenant responded by saying that in Tennessee, theres a tour just like the one Thomas mentioned and it is a major driv ing force for tourists to visit. The conver sation took a turn when TDC member Bob Olson asked Whisenant if Clay Countys tourism is tourist-driven or visitor-driven. Whisenant and everyone else on the TDC agreed that the county is visitor-driven and because of that, needs to appeal to those passing through. They need hooks to keep them here for some time, Whisenant said. When the discussion ended, the council decided that instead of voting to approve the draft at the meeting, they would spend the next few months the next TDC meet ing is in October reading through the massive strategic plan draft and come back at a later time to decide ofcially what to do with it.

As our cities grow, we lose what was once a breathtaking and humbling sight, as if the sky has become vandalized with ar ticial light. Stargazing is becoming a lost art, and we are los ing our connection with the cosmos. Granted, cer tain events, such as eclipses, will make the news and encourage some to take an interest in the heavens. But it is often eeting, unable to compete with a myriad of hectic schedules, TV binge-watching, Fort night, or even the synthetic skies found in movies and virtual reality glasses. How very unfortunate. Perhaps I can present you with another celestial show that will entice you to be come reacquainted with the night sky. We are in the middle of the Perseid Me teor shower, which occurs every August. Its name is derived from the fact that it ap pears to be originating from the constella tion Perseus in the Northern sky. Even though the event peaked on Au gust 12, the sky is still replete with me teors, or shooting stars, as they are also called. Between 50-100 may be seen an hour, with many leaving spectacular trails behind them. Because the moon is still in its waxing crescent phase, it sets early, making the canvas of night pristine for such a brilliant event. Do not let the name fool you: Shoot ing stars are not stars at all. Far from it! Instead, they are pieces of dust and rock, usually no larger than the size of your st, that enter our atmosphere at high veloci ties. The interaction with our atmosphere causes them to disintegrate, leaving a ery path in the sky behind them. Should one of these meteors survive the trip and impact the surface, it is then called a meteorite. On any given night, you can expect to see a dozen or so meteors every hour. But there are times when Earths orbital mo tion carries it through a debris eld and the sky becomes alive with dazzling streaks of light. In addition to the annual Perseid Me teor Shower, there are the Geminids, Orio nids, Leonids, and Quadrantids, to name a but a few, each with their own story. The story of the Perseids begins with Comet Swift-Tuttle. This solar system in terloper swings around the Sun every 133 years, leaving behind outgassed material it is has collected in its travels. The last time it paid us a visit was 1992. Comet Swift-Tuttle is remarkable in that it has an unusual orbit. Its path around the Sun is very steep compared to those of the planets and indeed the general plane of the solar system. It is almost as if the comet dives down toward the Sun, whips around, and then zips out again at very high speeds. This elongated orbit and high speed of this comet means that its debris is moving faster than those of other comets, around 37 miles per second. This is what gives the Perseids the extra pizzazz that sets it apart from others. So, what can you do to experience this natural reworks show? It is very easy. Find a dark, safe area, lay back and look up. While an additional study of the heav ens could also happen, telescopes and bin oculars are actually discouraged because there is no way to predict where exactly a meteor might appear in the sky. The universe is there to teach and in spire us every night, and it doesnt even cost a thing to be witness to its magni cence. I fear, with reection, that with progress our priorities have run amuck. Sometimes the best thing we can do is turn everything off and remember our place in space. n Thomas Webber teaches AP Phys ics 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 second ary and collegiate levels.

They wore us down in the fourth quarter.Ž Right from the opening whistle, the matchup of the two region nalist teams from last year, was going to be a mainly determined on the ground. Clay High coach Joshua Hoekstra quickly commented that his team needs to improve. Well x it,Ž said Hoesktra. With the full strength return, for Fleming Island, of junior tailback Dewayne McBride, who riddled the Blue Devil defense last year for the Golden Eagles own second half surge and the win, the Golden Eagles got 156 yards rushing and two scores from the bruiser to dictate the rst half action. We knew what he could do last year, but he got hurt,Ž said Springs. Fleming Island quarterback Dean Hyams gave McBride the ball six of seven plays in the initial series with a 16 yard pass to tight end Sam Snyder setting up a one yard scoring plunge for a 7-0 lead in just three minutes. Clay would try to answer with quarterback Spencer LeSage in command behind center, but Fleming Island stuffed the effort in three downs. Two overthrown passes from Hyams to Aaron Ramirez and Snyder stalled Fleming Island at their own 32 yard line. Those were on me,Ž said Hyams. My line was giving me the time to hit those.Ž With 2:10 left in the rst and a rst down at their own 20, Hyams orchestrated an 11-play scoring drive behind McBride and a facemask ag that put tailback Tim Thomas on fullback Max Michaels tail for a ve yard score as the quarter ended with Fleming Island up 130. Our big push this year is to keep number seven standing and clean,Ž said Fleming Island new offensive line coach Justin Reagan, a product from Bartram Trail High School who put together the Golden Eagles game plan with another new coach, former Clay High coach Ryan Wolfe, the offensive coordinator. Weve kind of taking two different styles of offense; mine a Bartram and his most recently from Creekside High, and married them up to try and score some points.ŽEagles hold o Blue Devils surge STAFF PHOTO BY RANDY LEFKORunning back Dewayne McBride stretches to score o a 45 yard run that put the Fleming Island Golden Eagles up 20-0 in the rst half of their season opener against rival Clay High School.

30 CLAY TODAY AUGUST 30, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COMORANGE PARK … The Ridgeview Panthers, led by senior quarterback Tyler Huff, got a huge 30-27 early season win over playoff regular Nature Coast Friday night at Ridgeview High School to put themselves in great early position in the FHSAA playoff points system. I didnt even win a game here until my junior year; to see where we are now and where we hope to go its really awesome,Ž said Huff, who nished with 190 passing yards and two scores. The atmosphere in the school is fantastic with our classmates high ving us in the halls and yelling our names; its really been a good time.Ž The Panthers took the opening kickoff to the 45 yard line to give their offense a short eld on their opening possession. Huff found sophomore Spencer Calise on a third down pass for a 20 yard gain to the Nature Coast Sharks 26 yard line. On the next play, wide receiver Brian Jackson ran 21 yards to the ve yard line powering the pile the last ten yards of his run and bringing the crowd to their feet in appreciation of his efforts. Huff would nd Isaac Chaf n two plays later on a ve yard touchdown pass to give the Panthers a 7-0 lead. The Ridgeview defensive line dominated early in the game against NCAA Division I running back prospect Mike Weston who is a large, bruising runner. Weston would convert a fourth and one run to give Nature Coast a rst down at the Ridgeview 21 yard line but a fumble on the next play would be recovered by senior linebacker Mike Green. Huff and Jackson would team up again on the next drive; one for a 20 yard gain and a second for a 26 yard gain down to the Nature Coast 14 yard line. However, the Week one football Ridgeview gets early playo boostdrive would stall and the Panthers were forced to kick a 23 yard eld goal by Matt Koziolek to give Ridgeview a 10-0 lead with just under nine minutes until halftime. After a punt by Nature Coast, the Panthers would turn to their own bruising running back Caleb Plyler who would break a 25 yard run to the Sharks four yard line. Two plays later Huff would call his own number and will his way into the endzone for a 17-0 lead and the Panthers were looking to blow Nature Coast off the eld. The Sharks were stunned and wounded but not extinct quite yet. Weston was a one man wrecking crew on the next possession bulldozing his way down the eld including a 25 yard run on a critical fourth down and 10 to end a 70 yard drive with a touchdown closing the gap to 17-7 with just 28 seconds until halftime. Turns out the Panthers only needed 24 seconds to score. Plyler would break a 32 yard run to the Sharks 28 yard line with just enough time for place kicker Matt Koziolek to boot a 45 yard eld goal to give the Panthers a 20-7 halftime lead. To start the third quarter, Nature Coast would drive to the Ridgeview 22 yard line including a fourth down conversion. However an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty later in the drive would stall the drive at the Panther 37 yard line and result in a punt that would land at the one inch line. Huff would convert a third down pass to the 12 yard line then later in the drive Huff would nd Rolando Grey for a 35 yard gain to the Nature Coast 29 yard line. Huff would then throw a perfect 29 yard touchdown pass to Brian Jackson in the front corner of the endzone to cap off a 99 yard drive and what appeared to be a commanding 27-7 lead. That drive was huge. Our offensive line is experienced and they knew we needed itŽ said Ridgeview head coach Cameron Porch. Huff had a con dence boost just before the drive began. I thought it was a touchback but it was on the one inch line so my center told me hey we are going 99 yards and I believed himŽ said Huff. Again, Weston took the majority of runs either straight up the middle or slightly to the left side and powered his way through for large chunks of yards. He would convert a critical fourth down run for a touchdown late in the third quarter to cut the lead to 27-14. The Sharks would score again after a poor punt by the Panthers gave Nature Coast the ball at the Ridgeview 31 yard line. Weston would power to the 13 yard line and a helmet to helmet penalty on the Panthers gave Nature Coast the ball at the six yard line. Weston would score with 5:55 remaining in the game to close the gap to six points seizing momentum late in the game. The kid (Weston) is a great running back and once he got a taste of success after his rst touchdown they really started pushing the tempo and got us on our heels a little bitŽ said Porch. Ridgeview had their back against the wall and needed a solid scoring (Or at least time consuming) drive to close out the game. They answered the call with a 51 yard drive to the Sharks 22 yard line that resulted in a 43 yard eld goal by Koziolek to give them a two possession lead. Most importantly the drive took over ve minutes off the game clock. That last drive is something we can use for the rest of the season and my kicker Matt Koziolek had an awesome night. I cant say enough good things about himŽ said Porch. Howver Nature Coast would not stop ghting. quarterback Fabian Burnett would complete his only pass of the game for 40 yards to the Panther 10 with :25 seconds left. Weston would score on the next play and cut the lead to three at 3027 with :21 seconds left. Oddly enough the Sharks went for the two point conversion instead of the extra point for an unknown reason. It wouldnt matter as the Panthers would recover the onside kick to go 1-0 on the season with a quality playoff opponent to impress the new playoff point system in Florida. Ridgeviews defense was led by senior defensive end Odijuan Whit eld who had 12 tackles, a quarterback hurry and caused two fumbles. Junior Glendon Miller had 15 tackles to lead the Panthers. Defensive backs Matthew Dye and Wes Morris both had one interception with Dye and linebacker Mike Green grabbing fumbles. The Panthers travel to Creekside next week looking to go 2-0 for the second straight season. By Doug DetersKnights open fast to defeat RaidersOAKLEAF … A highying passing game and a returned onsides kick for a touchdown led the Oakleaf High Knights to a 45-14 non-district win over visiting Orange Park High in the season opener for both teams. Led by sophomore quarterback Walter Simmons, who threw for two touchdowns off 247 yards in the air, the Knights went air more than ground against the Raiders with all state running back Keshawn King limited to just 42 yards rushing on eight carries. Oakleaf, 2-8 last years, gets to 1-0 in their climb to resurrecting a winning season record while Orange Park, 1-9 in 2017, looks to nd the formula for success under coach Tom Macpherson. In the Friday clash, Oakleaf blocked a eld goal attempt on the Raiders rst offensive drive that came from a 37 yard pass play that put the ball at the Oakleaf ve yard line. Oakleaf immediately went to offense with running back Keshawn King nishing off the scoring from two yards out. Still in the rst quarter, Oakleaf quarterback Walter Simmons found wideout Terrance Anthony twice for scores with the rst pass deemed out of bounds. Simmons went right back to Anthony for a second shot in the end zone that put Oakleaf up 14-0. Anthony would nish with four catches for 105 yards. Oakleafs next score came off a 40 yard pass play from Simmons to Sean Washington that set King up for a second touchdown. Washington would nish with four catches for 63 yards. Again, Simmons went to the air with a 25 yard pass play to Antonio Marshall that led to a Braden Ammon eld goal and a 24-0 lead. Ammon was perfect on six point after kicks for Oakleaf. Orange Park ended the half with wideout Terrence Johnson snagging a 30 yard pass, but the Raiders could not nish the drive as the half ended. Trying an onsides kick to start the second half, Orange Park got surprised when Oakleaf linebacker Dexter Moore scooped up the loose ball and returned it for a touchdown to start the half.

Kameron Wallizada, a sophomore who burst on to the cross country season last year for Fleming Island High with a handful of freshman school records in cross country and track, battled to a seventh place nish in 16 minutes, 39.10 seconds at Flagler against one of the fastest early season elds for 2018. Statewide, the Spikes and Spurs top three nishers registered three of the top ve times statewide for all season openers. I passed two guys near the two mile mark, but it may have been too early because they passed me when we got closer to the nish,Ž said Wallizada. I have to work on my race strategy against guys like this who are strong at the end.Ž Winner for the boys race, from Georgias Peachtree Ridge High School, was senior Chase Condra who overtook early leader Benjamin Foltz of Bolles near the midway point to win in 15:44.69. Foltz was second in 16:02.35. Condra was the Georgia cross country runner of the year with bests of 15:04 in cross country and a 4:24 mile on his resume. Condra was seventh in Class 7A at the Georgia state cross country championships. Foltz was 12th in Class 2A last year for Bolles who won the Class 2A boys title. In third place emerged another young and coming runner, Nease High freshman Rheinhardt Harrison, who came in at 16:17.62 with Bolles senior Chase Rivera fourth in 16:23.43 and Buchholz Caden Monk fth in 16:27.02. Rivera was ninth in 2A last year for Bolles. Monk was 15th in region 1-4A in 16:31. Harrison was last years middle school state champion with a 9:43.91 best for 3KM. Bolles won the mens title with 58 points with Bartram Trail second at 122 and Creekside third at 186. Fleming Island was fourth at 203. For Fleming Island, freshman Mei Chiang, a state middle school cross country third place nisher while a Orange Park Junior High, stayed at the front of a second pack that sat about 15 yards off the pace of a trio of frontrunners including Lake Marys Mya Bodrato and two Lake Brantley runners; eventual winner Ashley Klingenberg, a junior who won in 19:06.08, and senior Jordan Stevens, who would nish fourth. With Chiang was eventual runnerup Elizabeth Iliff, a sophomore at Creekside, who surged to take second in 19:30.93 ahead of Bolles senior Maeve ORiordan who was third in 19:36.47.

32 CLAY TODAY AUGUST 30, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COMClay could still muster little offense with Fleming Island linebacker Andrew Thomas and safety Jacob Ashe thwarting pass attempts. Another facemask penalty on a pass to Ramirez pushed the Fleming Island offense inside the Clay side of the eld where McBride nished off the drive with a 45 yard run ending with a ying stretch into the end zone for a 20-0 lead. Brown and LeSage executed an inside/outside attack on Fleming Island and moved the ball 60 yards to paydirt with LeSage keeping from the four yard line to score the game 20-6 with 4:29 to the half. On the ensuing possession for Fleming Island, Hyams went over top to wideout Jared Ashe who got behind cornerback Eric Premore and caught the ball at Clays 36 yard for an initial gain of 37 yards. Two handoffs to McBride; one for 16 yards, put Thomas in the end zone from ve yards out for a 27-6 score with just over two minutes to the break. Both teams exchanged zero movement series with McBride fumbling away with a minute to go at the Fleming Island 16 yard in an ominous moment for Clay. Hoekstra put senior quarterback Turner Erstad in and mammoth freshman running back AlQuerious Ray, a 6-0, 240 lbs. Lake Asbury Junior High product, to the Fleming Island defense with a 45 yard run up the middle that Oglesby saved from a score with a tackle from behind at the Fleming Island 30 yard line. We cant give up that kind of yardage in the second half and win big games,Ž said Springs. We bend, but dont break.Ž Erstads second shot into the end zone wound up a fracas between wide out Derek Holt and cornerback Darius Harris that ended with Harris dislodging the ball on the way down. Clay gave up the ball on downs with an incompletion to Brown. From the Fleming Island 26, Holt nearly redeemed his earlier mishap with a sideline catch that got free at the eight yard line for a sprint to the end one but reversed with a foot stepping out of bounds at the eight. LeSage returned behind center and nished the drive with a keeper putting the score now at 27-13 with 1:47 left in the third. Starting at their own 20, Erstad hit Brown for 11 yards before, on a third down and 10, Erstad found Holt on a slant that got away from Oglesby on the ensuing run and nished at the Fleming Island three yard line in the biggest play of the night for the Blue Devils. From there, Erstad punched in for the 27-20 score with 5:55 left in the game and both sides in a frenzy. Hoekstra called for a blooped onsides kick from kicker Tucker Reape and the ball oated over Fleming Islands coverage team and behind up back Zach Paine who blocked two Clay chasers for enough time for the Golden Eagles to recover the ball that seemed idle for 30 seconds on the turf. Clay held on defense to force a punt. At their own 22, Erstad bobbled a center snap that Libretto and Paine covered him. An offensive pass interference pushed Clay to their own three before LeSage got gang-tackled after a pass at the 10 yard line ending the game. Eagles from page 29 Football from page 30 Marshall would score in the third period off a 28 yard scoring pass. The game ended with Orange Park getting two touchdowns; one a four yard pass to Deantwaan Holton and the second a four yard run from Isiah Blair. Oakleaf got a nal touchdown from running back Darrius Allen who punched in from three yards out. Oakleaf travels south to Miami to take on Glades Central while Orange Park hosts Nease High School on Fri., Aug. 30. By Don A. LongBroncos corraled by Menendez run gameST. AUGUSTINE … A fourth quarter lightning delay was enough defense to keep the Pedro Menendez High offense from reaching 50 points a second week in a row as the Falcons beat visiting Middleburg 42-7 in the weather-shortened non-district opener for both teams Friday night in St. Augustine. Menendez running back Kenny Logan punched in for 219 yards on the Broncos defense with four touchdowns as Menendez got to a 34-7 lead before halftime. Menendez got scoring plays of 72 yards on one play and an 80 yard pass play. Broncos junior quarterback Joe Justino scored the Broncos lone touchdown on a two yard run. The Broncos got 129 rushing yards from Tyler Bryant and Anthony Havens on 22 carries total. By Randy LefkoSpartans pound for seven scoresORANGE PARK … With an offense utliziing six ball carries that accrued 268 yards rushing, the St. Johns Country Day School football team opened the new season under coach Derek Chipoletti with a resounding 49-0 win over Merritt Island Christian Friday night at the St. Johns campus in Orange Park. With quarterback Max Monroe at the controls, the Spartan offense got strong running from Eli Morton, Monroe and Brady Walden, all three just above 70 yards rushing apiece to keep the Merritt Island defense on its heels. Monroe and Morton both scored twice on the ground with Monroe, seven of 12 in the air, getting a third score in the air to Morton off a 38 yard pass play. The other three ball carriers for Chipoletti were Max Arnold, 25 yards on four carries; Marcus Coleman, 24 yards on three carries and Nate Rowen, two yards on three carries. In the air, Matthew Kelley snared three passes for 35 yards with Tanner Walker getting two passes for 17 yards. Morton and Walden both caught one apiece with Morton getting his 38 yarder in the end zone. On defense, Morton led the Spartans with 10 tackles; two for loss. John Nowicki had two sacks.

They got a big one on the kickoff, but the defense was able to bend but not break.Ž Channell, with two touchdowns on the night, was joined in the Indians ground game that put up 359 total rush yards by junior Ty Friedlin who added another 132 yards with two more touchdowns. Keystone Heights is still without tailback Kaleb Vojnovski, who injured a hand over the summer. Keystone Heights coach Chuck Dickinson had mentioned that his offensive line for 2018 was as big as he has ever had with senior Dan Dodd leading the crew which includes junior Joey Baxter and senior Josh Hughes. Sophomore Gage Stevens was quarterback for the Indians with just three completions of ve throws with Friedlin catching two and senior Colton Crane snagging a 29-yarder. Channells rst score was a ve yarder behind Hughes. Channell had a handful of runs of more than 20 yards. Channells second touchdown had Dodd line up as a right side tight end and lead blocker Tyler Cumbus from the left guard position creating a gaping hole for the touchdown. We put all the power on the right side and overload the attack point with TC (Cumbus) coming over from the left side,Ž said Dickinson. Its tough to defend all those big guys coming at the defense.Ž Keystone Heights heads to P.K.

Clay missed a possible upset at Fleming Island by the pigskin of a close call on a fourth quarter onside kick that stalled the second half momentum of what could have been another Blue Devil comeback classic. Clay a bit bruised and this score could go bad quickly if the sting of Fleming Island remains. Middleburg has to rebound so questions of preparation are snubbed and the season is not doused. 7A-Fleming Island (1-0) at 8A-Sandalwood (1-0) (FIHS 32, SHS 16)Fleming Island got a great rst half display of their o ensive repower, but the second half zzed out. Sandalwood topped a pretty good Ribault team 21-8. The Saints are huge with a ton of 6-footers plus just in the backeld and two 6-5Ž wide receivers. 5A-Ridgeview (1-0) at 7A-Creekside (1-0) (RHS 52, Creekside 6)Ridgeview passed their rst test of the season with rugged Nature Coast 30-27 and showed some grittiness in doing so. Creekside, hammered in their preseason game 50-12 by Menendez, rebounded with a 21-9 win over Winter Springs High (0-10 in 2017), who came in with a strong run game, scored rst, but could not hold the edge. Creekside got three touchdown passes from quarter Tai Lavatai. This could be a passing bonanza. 2A-Trinity Christian (1-0) at IND-SJCDS (1-0) (SJCDS 26, Trinity 12)St. Johns Country Day School opened with a 49-0 win over Merritt Island Christian. Trinity Christian (2-8 in 2018) opened with a 34-6 win over Bishop Snyder and is new to the Spartan schedule. Trinity ran for 282 yards against Snyder with two ball carriers over 100 yards; senior quarterback Jacob Mullee (No. 5) with 165 yards.

Nease got beat 35-14 by Ponte Vedra in a classic rivalry in St. Johns County. Nease was up 14-13 at the half, but Ponte Vedra used sophomore running back Campbell Parkers 115 yards (55 yard run with six yard score following) to take the win. Nease got scores o a 43 yard pass play and a recovered end zone fumble by Parker. Raiders scored two late touchdowns against Oakleaf.7A-Oakleaf (1-0) at 4A-Glades Central (0-1) (OHS, 32, Glades 30)Glades Central has a storied history, but got hammered by 4A-University High (10-2 in 2017, lost in state semi nal to Cocoa High) 35-6 in their opener; 28 points in the rst half.

AUGUSTINE Erskine College volleyball made the long trip to Flagler College so the Fleet could measure up against three top ranked NCAA Division II teams; Flagler, No. 25, University of Minnesota Duluth, No. 3, plus 28th-ranked St. Leo University. University of Findlay (OH), ranked sixth in the midwest regions also competed. Flagler College was hosting the four teams in their annual Flagler Saints Classic held Aug. 24-25. In four games, Erskine left with four losses; all 3-0, but, according to head coach Heather Vahjen, the trip was a learning experience. "These are all top ranked teams and we want to give the girls as much opportunity to see what the next level looks like," said Vahjen, who nabbed Ridgeview High 2017 graduate Jauhna Smith as one of her top recruits for a young class of players; nine returning sophomores, designed to build the program. "We liked Jauhna to come here because she has the big girl mentality; she's a little giant."

Erskine traveled to Flagler College for two-day tournament against top-ranked NCAA Division II teams on Fri.-Sat. Aug. 23-24.geview High graduate and a Clay Today Player of the Year, the trip got a family visit and a chance to see top ranked play. "They are a lot taller in college," said Smith, one of nine returning sophomores for Erskine. "The conditioning part at this level is the quickest change in volleyball for me from high school." For the tournament, Erskine lost 2514, 25-14, 25-17 to Flagler with Smith registering six scoring shots to tie for the team leader with four digs. Against Flagler, Smith competed against a familiar face in Middleburg High grad Maddie Erwin, a libero for the Lady Saints. Erwin registered two service aces in the game. Against Saint Leo, the scores were 25-10, 25-13 and 25-23 with Smith registering just two scoring shots, but getting seven digs and a blocked shot. Against Minnesota-Duluth, the scores were 25-17, 25-12 and 25-10 with Smith registering ve scoring shots against a huge front line with four digs and one blocked shot, plus one scoring ace. Against Findlay, the scores were 25-12, 25-11 and 25-14 with Smith registering four scoring shots and ve digs. In 2017, with Erskine nishing with just two wins and 23 losses, Smith played in 65 sets with 146 scoring shots, 13 services aces, 143 digs and nine blocked shots. Vahjen likes Smith's attitude on the court more than her size. "Jauhna plays a lot bigger than she is at 5'-6"," said Vahjen. "She's a leader for our very young team. Vahjen concurred that, though Smith is a jumping machine and plays above her height against much taller fronts, her athletic abilities give her plenty of opportunity to contribute to the team in other areas. Vahjen wants Smith to become more consistent on her serving. "A lot of things that worked in high school are very much different here because of the size," sadi Jahjen. "'She's working on more tools in her tool box." Smith reiterated that the size differences has been the biggest surprise of college volleyball. "I have to play smarter in placing my shots more than just overpowering," said Smith. "I'm improving other parts of my game each week." Middleburg High grad Maddie Erwin is junior defensive specialist for Flagler College.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS AND REVISIONS FOR THE 2018 GENERAL ELECTION I, Ken Detzner, Secretary of State for Florida, do hereby give notice that the following proposed amendments and revisions to the Florida Constitution will be presented in each county on the 2018 General Election ballot. The language for these amendments may also be found at FloridaPublicNotices.com, at DOS.Elections. MyFlorida.com/initiatives, and at this newspapers website. NO. 1 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE VII, SECTION 6 ARTICLE XII, SECTION 37 BALLOT TITLE: Increased Homestead Property Tax Exemption BALLOT SUMMARY: Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to increase the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homestead property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies other than school district levies. The amendment shall take effect January 1, 2019. FULL TEXT: ARTICLE VII FINANCE AND TAXATION SECTION 6. Homestead exemptions. „ (a) Every person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner, or another legally or naturally dependent upon the owner, shall be exempt from taxation thereon, except assessments for special bene“ ts, up to the assessed valuation of twenty-“ ve thousand dollars and, for all levies other than school district levies, on the assessed valuation greater than “ fty thousand dollars and up to seventy-“ ve thousand dollars, and on the assessed valuation greater than one hundred thousand dollars and up to one hundred twenty-“ ve thousand dollars, upon establishment of right thereto in the manner prescribed by law. The real estate may be held by legal or equitable title, by the entireties, jointly, in common, as a condominium, or indirectly by stock ownership or membership representing the owners or members proprietary interest in a corporation owning a fee or a leasehold initially in excess of ninetyeight years. The exemption shall not apply with respect to any assessment roll until such roll is “ rst determined to be in compliance with the provisions of section 4 by a state agency designated by general law. This exemption is repealed on the effective date of any amendment to this Article which provides for the assessment of homestead property at less than just value. (b) Not more than one exemption shall be allowed any individual or family unit or with respect to any residential unit. No exemption shall exceed the value of the real estate assessable to the owner or, in case of ownership through stock or membership in a corporation, the value of the proportion which the interest in the corporation bears to the assessed value of the property. (c) By general law and subject to conditions speci“ ed therein, the Legislature may provide to renters, who are permanent residents, ad valorem tax relief on all ad valorem tax levies. Such ad valorem tax relief shall be in the form and amount established by general law. (d) The legislature may, by general law, allow counties or municipalities, for the purpose of their respective tax levies and subject to the provisions of general law, to grant either or both of the following additional homestead tax exemptions: (1) An exemption not exceeding “ fty thousand dollars to a person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner, who has attained age sixty-“ ve, and whose household income, as de“ ned by general law, does not exceed twenty thousand dollars; or (2) An exemption equal to the assessed value of the property to a person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate with a just value less than two hundred and “ fty thousand dollars, as determined in the “ rst tax year that the owner applies and is eligible for the exemption, and who has maintained thereon the permanent residence of the owner for not less than twenty-“ ve years, who has attained age sixty-“ ve, and whose household income does not exceed the income limitation prescribed in paragraph (1). The general law must allow counties and municipalities to grant these additional exemptions, within the limits prescribed in this subsection, by ordinance adopted in the manner prescribed by general law, and must provide for the periodic adjustment of the income limitation prescribed in this subsection for changes in the cost of living. (e) Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall receive a discount from the amount of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the veteran owns and resides in if the disability was combat related and the veteran was honorably discharged upon separation from military service. The discount shall be in a percentage equal to the percentage of the veterans permanent, serviceconnected disability as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for the discount granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to the county property appraiser, by March 1, an of“ cial letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs stating the percentage of the veterans service-connected disability and such evidence that reasonably identi“ es the disability as combat related and a copy of the veterans honorable discharge. If the property appraiser denies the request for a discount, the appraiser must notify the applicant in writing of the reasons for the denial, and the veteran may reapply. The Legislature may, by general law, waive the annual application requirement in subsequent years. This subsection is self-executing and does not require implementing legislation. (f) By general law and subject to conditions and limitations speci“ ed therein, the Legislature may provide ad valorem tax relief equal to the total amount or a portion of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property to: (1) The surviving spouse of a veteran who died from service-connected causes while on active duty as a member of the United States Armed Forces. (2) The surviving spouse of a “ rst responder who died in the line of duty. (3) A “ rst responder who is totally and permanently disabled as a result of an injury or injuries sustained in the line of duty. Causal connection between a disability and service in the line of duty shall not be presumed but must be determined as provided by general law. For purposes of this paragraph, the term disabilityŽ does not include a chronic condition or chronic disease, unless the injury sustained in the line of duty was the sole cause of the chronic condition or chronic disease. As used in this subsection and as further de“ ned by general law, the term “ rst responderŽ means a law enforcement of“ cer, a correctional of“ cer, a “ re“ ghter, an emergency medical technician, or a paramedic, and the term in the line of dutyŽ means arising out of and in the actual performance of duty required by employment as a “ rst responder. ARTICLE XII SCHEDULE SECTION 37. Increased homestead exemption. „This section and the amendment to Section 6 of Article VII increasing the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homestead property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies other than school district levies shall take effect January 1, 2019. NO. 2 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27 BALLOT TITLE: Limitations on Property Tax Assessments BALLOT SUMMARY: Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to permanently retain provisions currently in effect, which limit property tax assessment increases on speci“ ed nonhomestead real property, except for school district taxes, to 10 percent each year. If approved, the amendment removes the scheduled repeal of such provisions in 2019 and shall take effect January 1, 2019. FULL TEXT: ARTICLE XII SCHEDULE SECTION 27. Property tax exemptions and limitations on property tax assessments. „ (a) The amendments to Sections 3, 4, and 6 of Article VII, providing a $25,000 exemption for tangible personal property, providing an additional $25,000 homestead exemption, authorizing transfer of the accrued bene“ t from the limitations on the assessment of homestead property, and this section, if submitted to the electors of this state for approval or rejection at a special election authorized by law to be held on January 29, 2008, shall take effect upon approval by the electors and shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2008, or, if submitted to the electors of this state for approval or rejection at the next general election, shall take effect January 1 of the year following such general election. The amendments to Section 4 of Article VII creating subsections (g)(f) and (h)(g) of that section, creating a limitation on annual assessment increases for speci“ ed real property, shall take effect upon approval of the electors and shall “ rst limit assessments beginning January 1, 2009, if approved at a special election held on January 29, 2008, or shall “ rst limit assessments beginning January 1, 2010, if approved at the general election held in November of 2008. Subsections (f) and (g) of Section 4 of Article VII are repealed effective January 1, 2019; however, the legislature shall by joint resolution propose an amendment abrogating the repeal of subsections (f) and (g), which shall be submitted to the electors of this state for approval or rejection at the general election of 2018 and, if approved, shall take effect January 1, 2019. (b) The amendment to subsection (a) abrogating the scheduled repeal of subsections (g) and (h) of Section 4 of Article VII of the State Constitution as it existed in 2017, shall take effect January 1, 2019. NO. 3 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE X, SECTION 29 BALLOT TITLE: Voter Control of Gambling in Florida BALLOT SUMMARY: This amendment ensures that Florida voters shall have the exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling by requiring that in order for casino gambling to be authorized under Florida law, it must be approved by Florida voters pursuant to Article XI, Section 3 of the Florida Constitution. Affects articles X and XI. De“ nes casino gambling and clari“ es that this amendment does not con” ict with federal law regarding state/ tribal compacts. FINANCIAL IMPACT STATEMENT: The amendments impact on state and local government revenues and costs, if any, cannot be determined at this time because of its unknown effect on gambling operations that have not been approved by voters through a constitutional amendment proposed by a citizens initiative petition process. FULL TEXT: ARTICLE X, FLORIDA CONSTITUTION, is amended to include the following new section: Voter Control of Gambling in Florida. (a) This amendment ensures that Florida voters shall have the exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling in the State of Florida. This amendment requires a vote by citizens initiative pursuant to Article XI, section 3, in order for casino gambling to be authorized under Florida law. This section amends this Article; and also affects Article XI, by making citizens initiatives the exclusive method of authorizing casino gambling. (b) As used in this section, casino gamblingŽ means any of the types of games typically found in casinos and that are within the de“ nition of Class III gaming in the Federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, 25 U.S.C. § 2701 et seq. (IGRAŽ), and in 25 C.F.R. §502.4, upon adoption of this amendment, and any that are added to such de“ nition of Class III gaming in the future. This includes, but is not limited to, any house banking game, including but not limited to card games such as baccarat, chemin de fer, blackjack (21), and pai gow (if played as house banking games); any playerbanked game that simulates a house banking game, such as California black jack; casino games such as roulette, craps, and keno; any slot machines as de“ ned in 15 U.S.C. 1171(a)(1); and any other game not authorized by Article X, section 15, whether or not de“ ned as a slot machine, in which outcomes are determined by random number generator or are similarly assigned randomly, such as instant or historical racing. As used herein, casino gamblingŽ includes any electronic gambling devices, simulated gambling devices, video lottery devices, internet sweepstakes devices, and any other form of electronic or electromechanical facsimiles of any game of chance, slot machine, or casino-style game, regardless of how such devices are de“ ned under IGRA. As used herein, casino gamblingŽ does not include pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing, dog racing, or jai alai exhibitions. For purposes of this section, gamblingŽ and gamingŽ are synonymous. (c) Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the right of the Legislature to exercise its authority through general law to restrict, regulate, or tax any gaming or gambling activities. In addition, nothing herein shall be construed to limit the ability of the state or Native American tribes to negotiate gaming compacts pursuant to the Federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act for the conduct of casino gambling on tribal lands, or to affect any existing gambling on tribal lands pursuant to compacts executed by the state and Native American tribes pursuant to IGRA. (d) This section is effective upon approval by the voters, is self-executing, and no Legislative implementation is required. (e) If any part of this section is held invalid for any reason, the remaining portion or portions shall be severed from the invalid portion and given the fullest possible force and effect. NO. 4 CO N S TITUTI O NAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE VI, SECTION 4 BALLOT TITLE: Voting Restoration Amendment BALLOT SUMMARY: This amendment restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. The amendment would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses, who would continue to be permanently barred from voting unless the Governor and Cabinet vote to restore their voting rights on a case by case basis. FINANCIAL IMPACT STATEMENT: The precise effect of this amendment on state and local government costs cannot be determined, but the operation of current voter registration laws, combined with an increased number of felons registering to vote, will produce higher overall costs relative to the processes in place today. The impact, if any, on state and local government revenues cannot be determined. The “ scal impact of any future legislation that implements a different process cannot be reasonably determined. FULL TEXT: Article VI, Section 4. Disquali“ cations.„ (a) No person convicted of a felony, or adjudicated in this or any other state to be mentally incompetent, shall be quali“ ed to vote or hold of“ ce until restoration of civil rights or removal of disability. Except as provided in subsection (b) of this section, any disquali“ cation from voting arising from a felony conviction shall terminate and voting rights shall be restored upon completion of all terms of sentence including parole or probation. (b) No person convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense shall be quali“ ed to vote until restoration of civil rights. (b c) No person may appear on the ballot for re-election to any of the following of“ ces: (1) Florida representative, (2) Florida senator, (3) Florida Lieutenant governor, (4) any of“ ce of the Florida cabinet, (5) U.S. Representative from Florida, or (6) U.S. Senator from Florida if, by the end of the current term of of“ ce, the person will have served (or, but for resignation, would have served) in that of“ ce for eight consecutive years. NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE VII, SECTION 19 BALLOT TITLE: Supermajority Vote Required to Impose, Authorize, or Raise State Taxes or Fees BALLOT SUMMARY: Prohibits the legislature from imposing, authorizing, or raising a state tax or fee except through legislation approved by a two-thirds vote of each house of the legislature in a bill containing no other subject. This proposal does not authorize a state tax or fee otherwise prohibited by the Constitution and does not apply to fees or taxes imposed or authorized to be imposed by a county, municipality, school board, or special district.

Raises mandatory retirement age of state justices and judges from seventy to seventy-“ ve years; deletes authorization to complete judicial term if one-half of term has been served by retirement age.

(b) To preserve and protect the right of crime victims to achieve justice, ensure a meaningful role throughout the criminal and juvenile justice systems for crime victims, and ensure that crime victims rights and interests are respected and protected by law in a manner no less vigorous than protections afforded to criminal defendants and juvenile delinquents, every victim is entitled to the following rights, beginning at the time of his or her victimization: (1) The right to due process and to be treated with fairness and respect for the victims dignity. (2) The right to be free from intimidation, harassment, and abuse.

(7) The rights of the victim, as provided i n subparagraph (6)a., subparagraph (6)b., or subparagraph (6)c., that apply to any “ rst appearance proceeding are satis“ ed by a reasonable attempt by the appropriate agency to notify the victim and convey the victims views to the court. (8) The right to the prompt return of the victims property when no longer needed as evidence in the case. (9) The right to full and timely restitution in every case and from each convicted offender for all losses suffered, both directly and indirectly, by the victim as a result of the criminal conduct.

(c) The victim, the retained attorney of the victim, a lawful representative of the victim, or the of“ ce of the state attorney upon request of the victim, may assert and seek enforcement of the rights enumerated in this section and any other right afforded to a victim by law in any trial or appellate court, or before any other authority with jurisdiction over the case, as a matter of right. The court or other authority with jurisdiction shall act promptly on such a request, affording a remedy by due course of law for the violation of any right. The reasons for any decision regarding the disposition of a victims right shall be clearly stated on the record. (d) The granting of the rights enumerated in this section to victims may not be construed to deny or impair any other rights possessed by victims.
