During the Sept. 18 regular meeting, the Orange Park Town Council voted 5-0 to end further discussion with CCUA and a $20 million offer presented last spring to buy the towns water and sewer sys tem. Prior to the councils regular meet ing, council members and CCUA board members met in a town hall-style forum in council chambers to openly present the proposal.

Reed was an enthusiastic supporter and valuable source of information on area crops, politics and people. Reed moved in powerful North Florida business and political circles for over four decades before Benedict arrived. The fam ily maintained a city residence in a pres tigious Jacksonville neighborhood and a working farm and large residence on the river encompassing much of the land where Naval Air Station Jacksonville now stands. His advice and generous hospitality were also convenient because his highly successful plantation, Mulberry Grove, was just up the road and across the line in Duval County. Reed Street in Orange Park was christened in his honor. Benedict and his family often visited in the Reeds impressive plantation home. The two-story frame, clapboard house stood on a steep knoll, formed by an old In dian mound, faced the St. Johns River and the pier where boats of all sizes landed. Guests traveled almost 300 yards to the house under a shady canopy of parallel rows of live oak trees. Gracious porches on three sides helped to cool the interior. The rst oor included the large parlor and dining room on one side and three bedrooms and a family sit ting room on the other separated by a wide hall that went straight through the center. Opening all the windows and doors allowed river breezes to move freely. Upstairs were two large bedrooms with dormer windows front and back and a bathroom with running water supplied by an artesian well in front of the house. An L to the back contained 3 more bedrooms and at the end were the two rooms for Reeds ofce and library. All these rooms were accessed from an out side covered porch. From the back porch a boardwalk led A.M. Reed was patriarch of the family that built Mulberry Groove Plantation into a thriving operation. The property was located just across the new county line drawn in 1859 to form Clay County from the southern portion of Duval County. The area is now Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Mulberry Grove Plantation faded into the past SEE PLANTATION, 13 By Nick Blank Staff Writer JACKSONVILLE Ofcials at the JAXUSA Partnership Regional Economic Develop ment Forum brought the public and pri vate sector together to discuss how Duval County and its six surrounding counties can handle an incoming burst of economic growth. Clay County is a member of JAXUSA Partnership, the economic development arm of the Jacksonville Chamber of Com merce. Avalanche Consulting, an Austin, Texas-based economic growth consulting rm, prepared the report outlining a veyear plan on how to handle the growth. The goals Avalanche Consultings Amy Holloway presented to about 100 people at the University of North Florida stuck to four key points developing and attract ing talent, preparing for economic growth, building a brand and collaborating between industries. How does Northeast Florida make it self attractive to outside talent? Holloway asked. This is just the beginning. We need to energize and intensify these activities even more. Holloway said Jacksonville should re view applying smart infrastructure, such as Atlantas North Avenue Corridor and Chicagos data por tal. In addition to adding a diverse pool of jobs, she said Northeast Flor ida should focus on marketing Jackson ville and the areas water resources, and nearby counties would benet. Presenters men tioned Keystone Heights abundance of wa ter. Keystone Heights City Manager Scott Kornegay said he was enthused about the ideas from the discussion. The most exciting part is knowing that its a regional effort and Keystone Heights is positioned with a valuable and contribut ing member to the region, Kornegay said. Economic growth for the region cant do anything but help us. The report said the region added 100,000 jobs since 2012 and saw a 10 percent increase in bachelors degree and associate degree holders. However, Holloway cited two major challenges to growth in the region hous ing and transportation. There is a massive amount of commut ing in this region, Holloway said. Every county except Duval has about 60 percent of its residents working in another county. Elevate Northeast Florida is an organi zation working toward economic develop ment in the region and a sponsor of the event. Elevate Northeast Florida co-Chair Darnell Smith referred to Duvals sur rounding counties as family members and said it wasnt just about Jacksonville. We all have to win and experience eco nomic growth, Smith said. Chereese Stewart, Clay County goven rments director of Economic and Develop ment Services, said the meeting helped her identify key areas for the county to improve. We know one of our biggest issues is workforce and education and weve got to nd ways to do those better, Stewart said. We also know Clay County citizens have to go out of the county to work every day and weve got to try to x that. Hopefully this is a good working group to do that. State Rep. Bobby Payne(R-Palatka), whose district includes the southern half of Clay County, as well as Putnam and Bradford counties, said his main takeaway from the summit led him to more questions, such as closing the skills gap and improving infra structure in rural areas. Weve heard a lot of great discussion about innovation, but were still working on getting broadband in some of the areas in rural districts, Payne said. For me, it was a learning process. The report recommended members form a committee to discuss the initia tives, meet quarterly and provide an an nual progress report. Clay has stake in regions new economic plan Chereese Stewart

By Blake Dowling T his week, Tallahassee ABC afliate WTXL27 stopped by the ofce to chat on one of my favorite topics social media posts, specically video content. If I were to critique my own social media use, one might say I post too much. However, I try and stick to a once daily max for most platforms (Twitter be ing the exception). I think one post a day is entirely reasonable. In fact, I am merely trying to share things that were intended to be shared: col umns, branding my company and (of course) very important pictures from our football tailgate. Speaking of football, did you know if you asked Siri yesterday morning who is the worst team in college football, she said the Florida State Seminoles? Very strange, as I think they are only last in FBS schools average points per game (5) they are not actually last in the rankings. Who knows where Siri gets her info. The race for worst team in the state is on with the Seminoles currently in the lead, but that could change fast as the Hurricanes, Gators or Knights could catch up at any time. We will see if Willie Wonka and the Warchant Factory can turn it around. My chat with ABC started with kids and irresponsible online behavior, before moving to some more responsible use of video, and then corporations, celebrities and, of course, politicians. We began the conversation with a local story about a man with a gun and some local youths. As of this writing, the man with the gun is still on the loose. The youths were using video to de fend themselves, documenting a situ ation where someone pulled a gun on them, and good for them, in other cases, people are using video very poorly. Really? Paul Flart? Meanwhile, a Florida Taco Bell re fused service to a guest because she didnt speak Spanish. The guest could have driven off and never said a thing. Instead, they lmed the entire en counter to document what they were dealing with and shared it. So, by way of the video, the story speaks for itself. The woman did have a great sense of humor about it: Isnt Quesadilla, in Spanish, Quesadilla? Well isnt it? Politicians love their videos too. And not just pricey TV spots, but online con tent that gets a ne-tuned message out to the public. Check out Brian Kemp for Georgia Governor; he combines his beliefs with some humor in one of his campaign spots. In Florida, Andrew Gillums team produced a more serious message about family and his childhood experiences. I also chatted with Steve from the ABC afliate about the fact that instead all-day handful of news outlets, we now have literally millions. Everyone with a phone is a reporter and might have a story or (in the context of this article) video. According to The New York Times: People are broadening their deni tions of what political leaders can look like, said Teddy Goff, a co-founder of the By Patricia Brigham E rika Donalds, a Constitution Revi sion Commissioner and sponsor of the now-defunct Amendment 8, was right when she recently wrote that the League of Women Voters of Florida cheered the end of the bundled education amendment. Amendment 8 was written to confuse. It was log-rolled with three separate is sues civics classes for middle school students, term lim its for school board members, and the giveaway of local control to an un known legislativecreated entity for the purposes of cre ating new charter schools. Voters would not have known that sticking third point be cause the language was misleading and didnt spell out just what the CRC was try ing to do. The Florida Supreme Court saw right through it and struck it from the Nov. 6 ballot. Yet Donalds claimed the League was disenfranchising voters, a laughable ac cusation. Non-transparency and sneaky omissions in ballot language are actually a better description of disenfranchise ment. The League of Women Voters has a long and proud tradition of sticking up for voting rights and transparency in government. Our primary mission is to encourage the informed and active participation of citi zens in government. We achieve that mission by holding those in authority accountable to the vot ers. The process of the CRC was a sham skirting Sunshine laws and ignoring re peated warnings from a whole host of orga nizations who raised concerns about their process and product. We repeatedly shared our concerns with the CRC regarding the bundling of multiple proposals. If the backers of Amendment 8 truly wanted this decision to be left to the voters, they would have put it forward as a stand-alone amendment in clear, unambig uous language. They had every opportunity to do just that. Donalds also claimed that voters de served to have a say in whether to allow the school district monopoly over schools to continue, but activist judges decided otherwise. Donalds needs to keep in mind that public schools are not a business 4 CLAY TODAY September 20, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM The views and opinions expressed on this page are those of the authors and do not necessarily reect the opinion of the Clay Today.

Her argument is akin to saying re departments have a monopoly over putting out res. Donalds asserted that the League grinned at the news while hurting the very women they want to run for ofce, squash ing the term-limit policy and ensuring more career politicians stay cozy in their school board seats. Elections are the ultimate term limit. Anyone who feels they are more qualied for the job than an incumbent can run against them. Donalds insisted that more parents than ever are selecting schools outside of their district. Parents and the public at large ap prove of charter schools and other educa tion choice options at an increasing rate [The Leagues] interest is in preserving the status quo and maintaining power and con trol over the most sacred of choices who will help raise our children. If for-prot charter schools are as pop ular as Donalds claims, why was there no mention of charter schools in the ballot lan guage? Why was the primary purpose of the proposal taking away local authority over public schools hidden between term limits and civics education? Floridians overwhelm ingly support the constitutional requirement to make adequate provision for the educa tion of all children that is uniform, efcient, safe, secure and high quality. This wasnt just about expanding choice for students. It was taking local school boards out of the equation to allow for-prot charter school operators to set up new schools wherever and whenever they think they can make a prot at the taxpay ers expense. Finally, it should be noted that Donalds didnt mention that she was a founding Advi sory Board Member and Director of Opera tions for Mason Classical Academy, a Hills dale College public charter school in Collier County. Donalds is also an elected member of the Collier County School Board. Do the words conict of interest ring a bell? Donalds has vowed to continue the ght for school choice, and that she and other reformers have thick skin. Interesting. Her article sounded to us like the whining of a sore loser.

But for JJ Harris that is perfectly OK with him because he nally gets to be in the sun. In March 2018, the Clay County Eco nomic Development Corporation and its board of directors an nounced Harris had accepted the offer to become the organizations new president and executive director after a nationwide search. Harris, who was raised in Bedford, In diana, sees a lot of the same things in Clay County as his hometown. It reminds me of my southern Indiana roots, said Harris. Harris studied at Indiana Wesleyan Uni versity and received a bachelors degree in business administration and a masters in management. Harris served in the Army from 1985 until 1995 where he rose to rst lieuten ant. He re-enlisted in 2007 before retiring in 2017 as a major. Harris said the opportunity present in Clay County is one that makes him excited to get to work and work with residents. He said that the people he has meant are out going and friendly and have been eager to show him what the community is all about. Im very very excited for the oppor tunities here and Im looking forward to working with the communities, said Har ris. Before coming to Clay County, Harris Harris excited to be in Clay JJ Harris By Nick Blank Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS The citys fre quent power outages dont stem from one particular issue. Assistant City Manager and Public Works Director Mike Null said the recent outages were exacerbated by trees, lightning or rodents. Last weekend it was bird that caused a brief outage. On Labor Day, power was out in 800 homes for several hours, and Null said it was likely a bad arrestor, a de vice used to protect the grid from lighting strikes. Two weeks ago on Ogle Bay Drive, the issue was a 20-year-old sectionalizing box. Null said it takes longer to nd an un derground issue Overhead problems are easier to see. Underground problems are harder to see, all the wires are underground, Null said. If you have melted wires between one box and the next, you dont know until you start checking line by line. Null said the city is saved further out ages thanks to reclosers, which try to switch the power back on three times, in stalled a few years. When folks see all these little blips and they have to reset their clocks, thats in convenient, but that blip is potentially in the place of a two-hour outage, Null said. Staff felt that was better for folks. In April, the city council approved a $10.7 million loan from State Bank in Jacksonville over three years to upgrade the power grid. Magnolia Point would see more than $3.1 million in improvements by replac ing underground cables and adding a third feed, according to a presentation provided by Hooper Corp., the citys outsourced electricity management contractor. The infrastructure in Magnolia Point is overtaxed, it has been for a while. Some of the stuff is 30-plus years old, which is about at the end of its useful life if not past, Null said. Weve got to get that third feed in to allow us to do some of those re placements. Null said an additional $700,000 re build electric system infrastructure on Roberts Street was necessary to Magnolia feed power. Every one of our customers is going to benet from the loan, Null said. The citys electric utility recently in spected a quarter of the citys electric pow er poles, about 1,400 poles in all. A city release said 77 poles that failed inspection were being replaced. The city also aims to replace lines on State Road 16, County Road 209, Forbes Street, Pine and Cypress Avenues, strengthening voltage in numer ous areas and bolstering fuse coordination to limit the scope of potential outages. City Council Member Pam Lewis said the $10.7 million upgrade was much need ed for the city to have a more reliable grid and said the improvements were important for the citys expansion. We have a very old electric infrastruc ture, Lewis said. Weve made so many improvements in the past eight years, its just amazing. Its one more thing we really need to do. rfnrt SEE HARRIS, 8

He also held the role of chief executive ofcer and president of Laramie Chamber Business Alliance in Laramie, Wyoming and was president and chief executive ofcer of Laramie Econom ic Development Corporation. Harris said he sees a lot of opportunity within Clay County and believes the county will begin to see growth. One of the biggest projects that he is working on is the First Coast Expressway, the multi-lane, limited access toll road that will cross parts of Duval, Clay and St. Johns counties when completed. Part of this is already nished and the tolls are expected to begin being collected this fall. He also said that he is working with Florida Power & Light on an 850-acre so lar power project in Green Cove Springs to help create green energy for the com munity. Harris believes Clay County is a com munity that is willing to invest in itself and has leadership that wants to provide a liv able community. He also sees Clay as being a hot real estate location. With the changes he does expect push back, but Harris asks the community to be patient until the proposals have been shown. He asks that the community to be open-minded while the business is being done before making judgments. Listen to the facts about those indus tries that are coming here, said Harris. Harris is looking forward to working with the community that he sees as being aggressive and people that are willing to put forward the effort to help the commu nity grow. Harris said the FPL project should start in June 2019. Meanwhile, the segment of the First Coast Expressway from Blanding Bou levard to Green Cove Springs is always scheduled to get under construction next year as well. Harris from page 6 By Joshua Torres For Clay Today ORANGE PARK Not every surprise ends with a roomful of hugs, but that was the case at a local nonprot on Tuesday in Or ange Park. THE PLAYERS volunteer arm known as the Red Coats, visited Building Abili ties of Special Children & Adults Inc. on Sept. 18 and surprised them with a check for $20,000. They also presented everyone there with brand new backpacks and hats for THE PLAYERS as gifts. Its just so heartwarming, said Beth Clark, CEO of BASCA For them to take their time during the day to come out and visit us is huge. Clark said that the money will go to wards buying new gas tanks for generators that are at the group homes used by the organization. BASACA is an organization that pro vides services, such as housing, jobs and social experiences, to children and adults with intellectual and developmental dis abilities. The main focus of the organiza tion is to try and help the individuals feel like citizens of the community. The folks we work with are a part of the community and they cant always get out everywhere, said Clark. rfntb Clark said that the state provides them with generators for the group homes but they needed to buy new gas tanks that they were not able to afford. She said that she reached out to THE PLAYERS and they pro vided in a big way. The Red Coats have been a big help to BASCA for several years now, having do nated $58,000 to the organization since 2011. Its really amazing to give back the dol lars that 2,000 volunteers put their time in to, said Adam Campbell, 2019 Tourna ment chairman for THE PLAYERS Champi onship. Its so exciting to see the joy that comes to being able to support these orga nizations that need these dollars.

By Nick Blank Staff Writer TALLAHASSEE The 1st District Court of Appeal denied an Orange Park mans appeal that USB drives that led to his ar rest on a charge of possession of a re arm by a convicted felon should not have been used in court. According to court documents, Thom as Gerald Duke reported his vehicle sto len in November 2015, though the arrest report did not mention USB drives. Duke was sentenced to 92 months in a state prison for the gun possession charge. A man in possession of the USB drives, Mario Hampton, was arrested on unrelated charges. Hampton said he ex changed drugs for the drives. Hampton consented to a search and told deputies the drives contained offensive material. Detectives said the video depicted a man and an underage child. Police identied Duke in the video, and after executing a search warrant on his vehicle, they found a rearm. Duke was then arrested on one count of pos sessing a rearm as a convicted felon. He pleaded no contest to the charge and was later found guilty. Duke challenged the court that depu ties violated the Fourth Amendment by searching the USB drives without his consent and led a motion to suppress the evidence because ...he had not abandoned the drives; he retained an expectation of privacy in the contents of the drives after they were stolen; he did not consent to the search... The court stated Duke failed to have the initial burden of proof a Fourth Amendment search occurred. The court said Hampton only viewed one video and directed deputies to the contents of the video, and deputies viewing of the video was upheld by the court because Hamp ton consented to the search. Accordingly, under the circum stances, it was not unreasonable for the detective to conclude that Hampton had the apparent authority to consent to a search of the USB drives. We did not overlook the fact that the detective told Hampton that law enforcement knew the USB drives were not his, but that does not undermine the reasonableness of the detectives reliance on Hamptons appar ent authority to consent to a search of the drives, the court wrote. High court denies convicted felons appeal A man in possession of the USB drives, Mario Hampton, was arrested on unrelated charges. Hampton said he exchanged drugs for the drives.

During the regular council meet ing Sept. 18, town council voted 5-0 to reduce the mill age rate for scal year 2018-19 to the rolled back rate of 5.9212. Previously, it was 6.1818. While this rolled back rate will see the town lose $132,964 in revenue, Mayor Gary Meeks said he is happy that the council opted to move forward with a lower millage rate. The reason I am glad for it is that we promised the people that when we did the utility tax, that if there was any way that we could possibly in the future make a re duction...we would do it, Meeks said. The utility tax is an upcoming monthly stormwater utility tax that will see resi dents of Orange Park pay based on the parcels they own. The funds will help pro vide funding for future stormwater man agement. For the most part, residents were happy that the town council voted in the tax. For decades, Orange Park has been plagued with problems resulting from the towns management, or lack thereof, of stormwa ter. This utility tax, along with a $500,000 increase to the General Fund balance the town voted in back in February, will help tackle these problems head on. While this utility tax has not yet been implemented the council is still making amendments to its ordinance and still has another public hearing and reading before its ofcial residents can expect to pay no more than $10 a month. However, resident who own around 2,000 square feet of land will pay an amount closer to $5 a month, under the proposed ordinance. The decreased millage rate will offset the utility tax that residents will soon have to pay and give citizens a much-needed break, according to council member Alan Watt. I think the people deserve a break, Watt said. If were going to have stormwa ter, we have to be able to treat and main tain and take care of the stormwater, and if theyre going to pay for that [in the form of the stormwater utility tax], we have to give them a break somewhere else.

I dont think weve ever gone down the list of water services and what that means to the town. What is the communitys reac tion to this offer and how important is the provision of water and sewer service to the town by the town for citizens? These are questions were looking to get answered before we move forward with anything, Campbell told Clay Today in August. A room of over 50 constituents heard Morris explain the benets the acquisition would provide, as well as CCUAs reasoning behind the offer. Morris said, if the deal was approved, CCUA would help prepare Orange Park for the future of water services such identifying water from sources other than the Floridan Aquifer, stormwater reusability and more. He said the town has all its eggs in one bas ket, so if one water plant goes down, the town would be in an undesirable position, whereas with CCUA in control, if one plant goes down, there would be an additional 17 Water from page 1 plants available to continue service. Vice Mayor Ron Raymond, though, had no desire to deal in what ifs and future pos sibilities and instead offered Orange Parks services as a partnership for CCUA, rather than outright ownership. [The Orange Park water utility sys tem] is a cash cow and its a piggy bank and weve got the capability to x those prob lems [that Morris stated], Raymond said. I think we can work together. I think the discussion that weve had has said, okay, weve got some mutual needs and we can work together, but Im more interested in being your partner than being your cus tomer. CCUA board members jumped into the discussion just as other town council mem bers did but at the end of the town hall, the council was not going to budge, and they didnt, although they all commented how attering CCUAs interest was. A number of outspoken Orange Park residents shouted that CCUA only wanted the deal because of money, among other things. When residents got the time to speak later during the regular meeting the message was clear they did not want the council to take CCUAs deal. When council voted to end further dis cussions with CCUA about the offer, a thun derous applause erupted from the audi ence.

It was excruciating pain, said Mack. She had felt the lump on her breast but hadnt really been too worried about what it might be until the pain seemed it would not go away. This caused her to become alarmed and decided to get it checked. When she went in to her doctor to get the diagnosis, she had a feeling that all would be well and her doctor was attend ing to another patient so she thought that she was in the clear. This lump would turn out to be stage 3 in situ carcinoma, which according to the website cancer.gov, is a group of abnor mal cells that remain in the place where they rst formed and have not spread. The abnormal cells may become cancer and spread into nearby normal tissue. Mack said she can remember vividly being told her diagnosis but remembers nothing after that moment. She said her thoughts rushed through her life and everything up until that and she believed that at any moment she would be gone. Until someone reached out to her who wasnt in her life much, her father. Her father told her something that res onated with her and was one of the driving forces that helped her remain positive. He said that Everytime we hear the word cancer, we think death, said Mack Every sickness is not until death. Now 6 years later, the Orange Park res ident is cancer free and is doing what she can to help those who have gone through it or are now going through the stages of can cer treatment. She is helping to promote the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Clay County that is scheduled for Oct. 13 at Moosehaven at 1701 Park Ave. in Orange Park. She has also started her own personal project in which she brought out several survivors and had a day of pampering for them and had a photo shoot. She will also makes care packages for people who are undergoing cancer treatments. She wants to encourage people and ad vocate for diseases that do not get nearly as much attention such as male breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, there will be an estimated 2,550 new cases of breast cancer in men in the U.S. in 2018. Mack said she believes most men dont even realize that they can get breast can cer. They probably have a sense of shame, said Mack. She wants men to realize that its nothing to be ashamed of and wants others to be aware and take care of them selves. If you would like to sign up for the Mak ing Strides of Clay County or donate you can do so here http://main.acsevents.org/ site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=89645 Its not too late to start a team for the walk either.

This was the domain of the grandsons, Reed and Charles Pearson and their friends, considered too boisterous for the main house. The kitchen, made of brick, sat some distance from the house and was con nected by a walkway of the same brick. Another brick walkway led through Lou ise Reed Pearsons (A.M.s daughter) ex tensive garden to the greenhouse where she experimented with new varieties of roses and geraniums. Known for her ne intelligence Louise was forced to focus much of her ingenuity on keeping the family dogs from scratching up her plants. A smoke house made of oyster shell and lime held hams, bacon and beef and mutton hanging from the ceiling. Crops included oats, peas, potatoes, beans, corn and sugar cane. The old sugar house and the smoke house were south of the house on the road that went to the swimming pool. By the late 1800s, few of the mul berry trees which had given the place its name remained. On the rst oor of one storage building were the remnants of wooden trays and racks where the silk worms were kept and fed on mulberry leaves. On the second oor of this build ing shelled peas were stored in a locked room. After drying in their hulls, peas were placed in gunny sacks and then the sacks beaten with sticks. The contents were then spread out on the clean oor and the dried peas separated from the broken hulls. Ice was delivered by water in hun dred-pound blocks and brought by hand cart to the house, then slid down into the cellar on boards placed over the steps. In the rst room of the cellar fresh meat in clean cloth bags and dairy products were kept with the ice. In the back, canned fruit, jellies and preserves were stored. In August 1899, A.M. Reed died in his bed at Mulberry Grove. By the turn of the century, his family was residing in Jack sonville, and in 1905, family members began selling off the land. Part of the main house burned, and insects and water rot took hold. But for several years, Old Mr. Mierfeldt made his tobacco money taking tourists up to look for ghosts and listen to his stories. They especially liked the one about Mr. Reed burying the family silver in the yard when the Yankees came and then not be ing able to nd it when they left.

14 CLAY TODAY September 20, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM GREEN COVE SPRINGS Once a statewide pilot program, that has helped hundreds of Clay County citizens, the Clay County Clerks Ofce Low Bono Program is enter ing its third year of operation. However, there is room for more citi zens to benet from these low cost legal appointments just $1 per minute plus a need for more attorneys to volunteer their time to assist these clients with their fam ily law matters. My hope for Low Bono in the future is that it continues to be a robust service that we offer the citizens of Clay County and that they recognize that this program is there for them to utilize, said Clerk of Court Tara S. Green. Low Bono was designed to lower the barriers that prevent people who have moderate nancial means from accessing legal services, specically those involved in family law cases. The program, developed initially by Clay County Clerks Ofce General Counsel Justin Horan, is available to Clay County residents for Clay County family law cases only, with a focus on clients who represent themselves. Helping people get through their fam ily law related legal cases, feeling con dent about what they are doing is really the end goal, said Horan. Other involved attorneys agree. We want our community to understand that we are here for them, so take advan tage of this program, said Jessica Ska petis of Wiggins Law Firm in Green Cove Springs. Skapetis is one of eight licensed at torneys who volunteer and meet with Low Bono clients regularly at the Clay County Courthouse. There are misconceptions about how the court process works, Skapetis said. The biggest problem we see is inadmissi ble evidence, like hearsay, so we work with them to get them on the right track, so they have the best opportunity to be successful in front of the magistrate, she said. Skapetis describes the program as a win-win. If you love Clay County like I do and want to put roots down here in the com munity as an attorney, this is totally worth while, she said. The benets of this type of community outreach outweigh any time I occasionally lose in my ofce. Volunteer attorneys can meet with up to eight Low Bono clients a day. The majority of people come in after receiving a giant packet of paperwork and forms and dont know where to start. Theyre overwhelmed and often end up ling the wrong paper work or unnecessary forms. We help make the correct steps clear, so they can move forward, Skapetis said. Citizens may contact the Clerks Ofce to schedule an appointment with a Low Bono attorney at a rate of $1 per minute, minimum appointment time of 30 minutes, up to sixty minutes ($60). Services are provided on a cash only basis paid directly to the Low Bono attorney at the time of the appointment. Appointments are held at the Clay County Courthouse, 825 N. Orange Ave. in Green Cove Springs. Citizens are encour aged to watch a new informational video online at www.clayclerk.com on the SelfHelp Center page and on the Clerks You Tube channel and then to call the Clerks Ofce Civil Department to schedule an ap pointment at (904) 269-6363.

By Sarah Pickett For Clay Today MELROSE Tinsel the Cow and Holly the Cow almost met their fate at a cattle auc tion, but auctioneers deemed them too small and weak, due to the conditions of the transport truck, to sell for meat. The cows were rescued by farm sanc tuary workers, who then brought them to Rooterville Animal Sanctuary in Melrose. Today, Tinsel, the gentle giant weighing around 2,000-pounds, loves bananas and frequently feasts on peanut hay, which comes from the tops of peanut plants. Hol ly follows Tinsel everywhere he goes. Rooterville Animal Sanctuary serves as a rescue home for injured, abused or aban doned animals like Tinsel and Holly. The animal residents live out the rest of lives free to roam and play around the 30 acres of land on which Rooterville sits. Founder Elaine West started rescuing animals nearly 30 years ago. I started rescuing pot belly pigs when I found out that my local animal shelter was just giving them to people to eat and not even trying to nd them homes, she said. West rescued over 100 pigs before starting Rooterville. The inspiration for Rooterville was Stella the Pig. Stella was a farm pig who was a gesta tion sow, so her job was to have babies for the pork industry, she said. She fell out on the road on the way to slaughter and ended up in someones drive way, where West rescued her. I was afraid that she would be big, aggressive, unpredictable and dangerous. She was the total opposite of what I was expecting. [Stella] was sweet, gentle, af fectionate and just the best animal ever, she said. West wanted to show people that what they think about pigs is probably not right. I knew that if I had those stereotypes [about pigs] everybody else probably did, too. I wanted everyone to be able to expe rience farm animals and, hopefully, open their hearts and their minds to see them as Rooterville A place to grow old and be loved PHOTO BY SARAH PICKETT Rooterville Founder Elaine West stands with the animal sanctuarys star Tinsel the Cow who was saved from a life as a dairy cow.

September 20, 2018 CLAY TODAY 15 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Nick Blank Staff Writer TALLAHASSEE A man convicted of kill ing an Orange Park woman at Florida State University seven years ago is appealing to the states Supreme Court. In January of 2011, an inebriated Evan Cook Wilhelm, 21, allegedly was waving an AK-47 around at a FSU fraternity party. He discharged the rearm and killed 20-yearold Ashley Cowie, 20, of Orange Park. Last week, Wilhelms attorneys led a notice they are appealing the 1st District Court of Appeals ruling from June. According to court documents, Wilhelm pleaded no contest to three charges: cul pable negligence with injury, possession of a rearm on school property and man slaughter. Wilhelm was convicted in July 2012 and later sentenced to 20 years in prison and 10 years on proba tion. Wilhelms appeal was denied by the 1st District Court of Appeal. He claimed his attorneys were ineffective, and he should have been tried as a youthful of fender and he was given an illegal general sentence. Wilhelm claimed two of his four attor neys were knowledgeable of a 10-year plea deal offered by the state. The two attorneys testied to the court they told Wilhelm of the plea and he refused the offer, instead he wanted a sentence of two or three years. Wilhelm also said his lawyers missed a window for him to be sentenced as a youth ful offender. The appeals court stated the charges were led a few months after he turned 21. The appeals court also correct ed its initial ruling in August and stated the 20-year sentence is for the manslaughter charge and the other two charges amount ed to time served. We additionally nd no merit to the argument that counsels failure to own up to miscalculating Mr. Wilhelms age at the sentencing hearing created a conict of in terest and ineffective assistance, the ap peals court wrote. Wilhelm, 28, is incarcerated at Wakulla Correctional Institution in Crawfordsville. The State Supreme Court has not sched uled oral arguments in his case.

Be as sured that you are not alone in that condition. Everyone you meet has things that have happened, are happening or will soon happen in his life that he will not understand. The wonderful thing is that God knows every issue or problem that you have and He will provide you with the strength to prevail in every situation if you will trust Him. The Apostle Paul faced many prob lems. The one that seemed to trouble him most was his thorn in the esh. He said he asked God three times to remove it from him, but the Lord did not do it. Instead of taking it away, the Lord said to Paul, My grace is sufcient for you. Then Paul quoted the words that God gave him which sustained him in dealing with this thorn. Paul said the Lord told him, My grace is sufcient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. From this the Apostle could say, When I am weak, then I am strong. Paul came to this understanding: When I am weak in human strength, then I am truly strong (able and powerful) in divine strength. Paul learned the lesson that all of us need to learn. God will bring you through every hardship! It may not be exactly the way you want it to happen, but He will do it in His own way. God allows us to experience our own weakness so that He can reveal His strength. He wants us to depend on His great grace not on our own ability. Referring to escape from trials, some one said, God will pull you through if you can stand the pull. And we can stand it. We can deal with anything! Because His grace is sufcient for us in all things. (Scriptures: 2 Corin thians 12; Isaiah 43:1-2) Dont quit! Stand rm! You will prevail by His Grace! www.rstagcc.org Write the Pastor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org Supervisor looking for elections workers GREEN COVE SPRINGS An expect ed high voter turnout is forcing the Clay County Supervisor of Elections to nds additional poll and elections workers for the Nov. 6 General Election. Elections workers are integral to the election process and ensure voting is run efciently and fairly. They serve in the precincts on Election Day as either deputies or inspectors and must be a reg istered voter in Clay County. Workers responsibilities include checking in voters, issuing ballots, moni toring equipment, maintaining order at the precinct and offering any assistance needed. Both positions earn $150 per election. The Supervisor also needs bilingual Elections Workers who are able to read and write English and Spanish uently. This is a great opportunity for civic-mind ed individuals to help their community and take part in the democratic process. Florida Statute requires Elections Workers complete a training class before each election. On Election Day, they re port to their assigned precinct by 6 a.m. to prepare for voting, which begins at 7 a.m. They will stay till polls close at 7 p.m. and every voter has voted. Though its a long day, it is a valuable and reward ing role. To learn more about working at the polls for the 2018 General Election, visit ClayElections.com or contact Thunder Nkere at (904) 269-6350.

September 20, 2018 CLAY TODAY 21 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM after Fourth Judicial Circuit State Attor ney Melissa Nelson recused herself and her assistant prosecutors from handling the case. The governors May 15 executive order states that Nelson recused herself because Wilkes is the daughter-in-law of a retired senior judge in the Fourth Judicial Circuit. Wilkes is married to Joey Wilkes, the son of retired Senior Judge William A. Wilkes, also of Keystone Heights. The late judge died July 20. According to the arrest warrant, Me linda Wilkes stole the funds from Keystone Chiropractic and Alliance Rehabilitation & Chiropractic between April 3, 2009 and April 20, 2016. However, it was not until July 31, 2018 that law enforcement ob tained warrants for Melinda Wilkes arrest. Jinnifer Stephan advised Melinda Dawn Wilkes has been stealing money from the business by conducting fraudulent transactions via checks, money transfers, and debit card based transactions, states the warrant. Police found seven checks that were made payable to Melinda Wilkes for a total of $5,200 and another 9 bank withdrawals performed at Compass Bank in Keystone Heights for a total of $24,054. From the bank withdrawals, investigators found that Melinda Wilkes used $10,865 to make a down payment to purchase the Keystone Chiropractic building at 330 South Law rence Blvd. CCSO Financial Crimes Unit detectives also found Melinda Wilkes wrote 31 checks for $3,403 to pay for her childrens extra curricular activities, states the warrant. Wilkes also wrote checks from Stephans businesses to two companies owned by Melinda Wilkes Trinity Consult ing and Wilkes Building LLC. There were 26 checks written to Trin ity Consulting which is a company owned by Melinda Dawn Wilkes. Jinnifer Stephan advised the company never performed any work for her business. The total of those checks was $46,520, states the warrant. Investigators also found Melinda Wilkes had written 14 checks totaling $22,300 to Wilkes Building LLC, which became the owner of the building that housed Stephans chiropractic ofce. At that point, she alleg edly raised the monthly rent from $659 to a varying rate of $1,000 or $2,000 a month despite Stephan never agreeing to change the rental agreement. Felony wildlife killing suspect held without bond GREEN COVE SPRINGS Court of cials have set aside Oct. 3 as the next day in court for a Green Cove Springs man charged with intentionally killing or wounding various species of animals, in cluding one that is threatened. Christopher An drew Pippin, 31, remains in the Clay County Jail without bond following his Sept. 6 arrest at his current home in the 4100 block of Ranch Land Trail in Green Cove Springs. He is also being held for drug and drug para phernalia possession, as well as violating probation related to a prior felony charge. According to the warrant obtained by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigator Troy Starling, the investigation began when his estranged wife called FWC and alleged that Pippin had illegally killed a number of animals. A July 7 search of their home in the 1200 block of Lions Den Drive in Green Cove Springs uncovered a pair of Sher man Fox Squirrels, which are protected as a State Species of Special Concern by Floridas Endangered and Threatened Spe cies Rule. Starling also found ve bags of bear meat, four sets of short or unlawful deer antlers and one full bodied Bobcat, states the warrant. Pippins wife told FWC that her hus band had bragged about killing the rare squirrels in 2017 and saw him place them in a freezer to save for taxidermy. She also stated that he had killed mul tiple deer during the closed season as he admitted such, along with close encounters with Law Enforcement during times that he would have to leave a dead animal for fear of being caught, the warrant states. She also told police that he would stay out all night hunting and using metham phetamine and was never home. On July 18, Pippins wife called FWC and reported that Pippin had returned to the home to steal things and was arrest ed by the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce for violating an injunction for protection she had against him. When FWC interviewed Pippin in the county jail, he admitted to killing the squir rels and said he shot them with a .17-cali ber rie off of Springbank Road in early 2017 in Clay County. Under Florida law, killing an imperiled species is a third-de gree felony. Christopher Pippin did also say that he was older and wiser now, and he would like to possess better views so that he may instill them in his children. Pippin said that he would no longer be a poacher, and shoot bears, Florida Fox squirrels and unlawful deer off the side of the road, states the warrant. Appeal process starts in DUI manslaughter conviction GREEN COVE SPRINGS A 53-year-old Green Cove Springs man sentenced in July to 10 years in prison for the death of his son is appealing his case to the 1st District Court of Appeal. Thomas Frank Clark, convicted of DUI manslaughter in the December 2015 ATV accident that claimed his special needs sons life, asked the high court on Aug. 6 to begin a review of the lower courts verdict.

According to the warrant, both of these dogs also appeared malnour ished and emaciated, with its bones pro truding from their body. When the deputy and animal control ofcer entered the house, they found another ve dogs locked inside. The house had no running water or electricity. These seven dogs, Caleb, Brock, Bo, Midnight, Annabelle, Mojo and Izzy, were removed from the property after Tedder relinquished her right of ownership over them. Nine months later, Tedder was arrested and charged with seven counts of animal abandonment. She is free on bond from the Clay County Jail. According to Clay Hu mane Senior Staff Veterinarian Christian Broadhurst, as long as the abuse is report ed in a timely manner enough, the animals have a higher chance of rehabiliation. Fortunately, dogs are extremely resil ient, almost to a fault, Broadhurst said. According to Broadhurst, the biggest hurdle when rehabilitating dogs, whether they are neglected, abandoned or abused, is not physical its psychological. If we can get them out of the situation, chances are pretty high that the dog will be OK in the long run, at least physically, but psychologically, theres a chance these dogs struggle resocializing with humans, Broadhurst said. Well get them healthy in just a few weeks to a few months, but teaching them that not all humans are like the ones they previously lived with is the challenge. According to Broadhurst, dogs are so resilient that even after traumatizing abuse, theyre able to isolate danger to their body in order to survive. For exam ple, if a dog has an exposed bone, theyre likely going to acquire a bone infection. A dog is able to isolate the infection to keep it from spreading and keep itself alive un til help comes. For a bone to be exposed though, the dog likely endured much worse conditions than neglect they were prob ably abused. Broadhurst said neglect and abandonment are signicantly more com mon than abuse, but throughout the year, hell see cases of both situations. Part of Broadhursts job is identifying animal abuse or neglect. Sometimes, pet owners will bring in a dog for a checkup and he will notice key signs of abuse or neglect, such as differently-aged healing injuries or a desire to ee from the owner. When this happens, Broadhurst will call Clay Animal Services and request a well ness check in which an animal services of cer stops by a pet owners home to child on the animals welfare. Often, neglect, such as Tedders case, is the result of hoarding, he said. Broad hurst, who has a masters degree in Veteri nary Forensic Science, said hoarding oc curs when pet owners have more pets than they are able to accommodate. Broadhurst recalled a woman with over 70 cats in her house. Its a psychological thing when it comes to hoarders, Broadhurst said. Their intentions are in the right place but what ends up happening is these animals are neglected. If convicted, Tedder could be ned $5,000 per count and face imprisonment. Animal abandonment is a misdemeanor under Florida law. more than a menu option, she said. West achieved 501(c) nonprot status in 2004. Since then, Rooterville has been build ing like crazy and growing like crazy, she said. The sanctuary is home to over 300 ani mals including pigs, cows, goats, miniature horses, ducks, turkeys, chickens and dogs. The 30 acres includes a boarding and re covery area for recent rescues or veteri nary visits. It also has a space for the cows and goats, a retirement community for the pigs who are 10 or older, an area for the old geriatric animals and a gift shop. There is also an active beehive. The one space on the sanctuary that does not have animals is what they call the People Barn, where visitors can camp and wake up to the roosters crows. There are also two rooms Rooterville from page 14 Rooterville holds community events, such as Boo at the Roo scheduled for October, as a way to not only have fun but educate the public about the animal sanctuary and its mission. The feed bill at Rooterville is more than $5,000 a month, which means the sta at the nonprot animal sanctuary has to also be raising funds to keep the animals happy and cared for. available for a bed and breakfast. Rooterville is run entirely on foundation support and relies on donations from the public. The sanctuary offers a membership program where donors become monthly sponsors for the animals. Our feed bill alone is around $5,500 a month, said West. People dont realize how expensive it is. The sanctuary also offers a volunteer program and is always looking for new ones. Laney Testa, a Ridgeview High School senior who started volunteering at the sanctuary this summer, said that through volunteering, she has learned more inter esting facts about the animals and what they need to survive. I love the animals. They are all so cute and each one has their own personality, she said. Rooterville is open for tours by appoint ment. The sanctuary does not offer tours in August due to the heat. Currently, Rooter ville cannot accept any more animals due to its full capacity, but West said that they provide networking with other sanctuaries, if needed. The sanctuary is currently looking to expand and move to Orlando. However, West has her eye on a nearby piece of property that may become available near the sanctuary. If it does, the sanctuary will remain in its current location. The sanctu ary holds about four public events yearly, most recently, the July Jamboree. The July Jamboree, held on July 14, brought in about 500 visitors and included activities for kids including face painting and feeding the animals. We gave out samples of vegan ice cream, vegan hot dogs, and had snocones, said West. The next event, Boo at the Roo, will be held in October.

After having smoked up the house more than once and after having to throw open all the windows and get all the smoke out, my wife said, Im going to schedule a class for you, said Beck who is a graduate of the Academy of Coffee Excellence at Wil liamsburg Coffee in Williamsburg, Virginia. When roasting was a hobby, Beck gave the coffee to friends and family. But, in 2016, that changed when he set a goal of going into business as full-edged coffee roaster after years working in the engi Coffee from page 22 neering industry. He is certied as a roaster with the Santa Ana, California-based Specialty Cof fee Association, and since that time, has earned certications for Golden Cup Brew ing a technician course and is a certi ed Green Coffee Buyer. Since opening at 322 SR 100, Beck said he has experienced a steady climb in light roast coffee sales because he has done more and more to educate custom ers about which beans have more caffeine. The answer runs counter to conventional wisdom. As youre roasting the beans, its just like if youre steaming green beans a lot of your avor is going away in the steam and the water and in this case, [the a vor] is getting roasted out, Beck said. Its a minor amount, but its actually less, so if you want more caffeine, its better to have a lower roast level than a higher one. In other words, bold coffee taste does not equate to bold amounts of the stuff cof fee drinkers seek to wake them up. Its not real common knowledge, Beck said. Everybody thinks theyve got to have their dark bold coffee in the morning. Becks top seller is the Ethiopian, fol lowed by the Sumatran, which is followed by Colombian beans. In his training, Beck has learned to put his senses of smell and taste to their full est use. He is trained and tested on that training to sniff out unwanted, tainted smells, as well as smells that help cre ate the ultimate coffee experience for the consumer. Hes even had training on wa ter quality and how that aspect plays into making great coffee. Its a marriage of technology and art and I had the technology side down and the art side you just got to have a feel for it or have some help. My wife, I think, has that because she is kind of artsy and shes been instrumental, and also a partner in getting this business going, Beck said. Beck and his staff can roast up to 500 pounds of beans per day in their opera tions 1,800 square feet of space. Up front is the coffee shop and the back area is where the beans and roasting equipment are stored. To nd out more about FirePower Roasters, check out their website at www.repower.coffee.

September 20, 2018 CLAY TODAY 25 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfrrrrrrntb ntbfntrb bntbnntbrfnrtb By Bradley Burbaugh UF/IFAS Extension Director Clay County GREEN COVE SPRINGS Honey is one of the most appreciated and valued natural products introduced to humankind since ancient times. In Clay County we have over 80 registered beekeepers who have ap proximately 180 hives. Florida continually ranks as one of the top ve honey produc ing states. Last year, Florida beekeepers produced over 8 million pounds of honey, which is often referred to as liquid gold. As a former beekeeper I was always happy to share the liquid gold the bees would produce with my dentist, dry clean er and family members. As a beekeeper, I found there is no shortage of reported health benets from honey, but as a re searcher, I always disclosed that some honey benet claims are more substan tially supported with research than others. For thousands of years, humans have been using honey for medicinal and healthrelated purposes. There is a now a growing body of scientic research, which is out lined below, that demonstrate the antioxi dant, anti-inammatory and antimicrobial properties of honey. Antioxidants Antioxidants scavenge and eliminate unstable molecules (i.e., free radicals) that can damage the cells in our bodies. Honey is a dietary antioxidant, which means it contains components that can help delay this damage to our cells or tissues. There are over 300 types of honey and the amount and type of antioxidant proper ties varies for each type. However, honey in general, provides more antioxidants than white sugar, corn syrup, or agave. Some studies show that darker colored honeys contain more antioxidants than lighter colored honeys. Anti-Inammatory While honey has been used as a health product for thousands of years, only re cently have studies been conducted to con rm its potential to help reduce internal and external inammation. After applica tion of honey to wounds and infections, the number of inammatory cells was shown to be reduced, suggesting honeys benets in wound treatment applications. In addition, honey has also been found to reduce internal inammatory response in recent clinical trials. Honeys ability to reduce inammation has not been attrib uted to one compound but to its overall composition and properties. Antimicrobial The antimicrobial capacity of honey has been attributed mainly to the presence of hydrogen peroxide, a compound that when UF/IFAS PHOTO: TYLER JONES Honey Bee products on display at the Bee College on Friday, March 20, 2009. Health benets of honey used at low concentrations can induce wound healing. Hydrogen peroxide is pro duced from compounds found naturally in honey. The high acidity in honey is also thought to inuence the antimicrobial capacity, because many bacteria cannot survive in acidic environments. Honey makes an ef fective antimicrobial agent for treating sore throats and other bacterial infections too. Darker honeys generally have been shown to exhibit stronger antimicrobial capacities. Allergies Friends would often ask for some home honey because they believed it could help with common environmental allergies such as pollen, dust and grass allergies. There is no consensus in the scientic commu nity as to whether honey does help reduce allergies. The theory is that the increased exposure of pollen in natural, unprocessed honey may help to reduce allergies to these specic pollens. The composition and overall properties of honey make it a food that can provide antioxidant, anti-inammatory and antimi crobial benets. Its important to remem ber that color and varietal source play an inuential role in the medicinal properties of honey.

28 CLAY TODAY September 20, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Randy Lefko Sports Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGS In a classic slug fest between two Clay County rivals, Or ange Park High got two monumental defen sive efforts; one a stuffed fourth down run at the Raider six yard line, the other an end zone interception, as the Raiders held on to beat Clay 29-28 in a district clash that puts district 5-5A into turmoil with losses to early frontrunners Ridgeview and Pedro Menendez. This feels great, said Raider de fensive end Kendy Charles, who stuffed a fourth down run play at the Raider six that thwarted a go-ahead scored for Clay. Weve been working all week to get this one. No one believed in us and we just came together. For Raider coach Tom Macpherson, the win was a big jolt for the Raider program, but the more important element of the night was the resolve of his team after suf fering two seasons of sub-par play. You got to give hats off to Clay, they do what they do and it was up to us to stop them, said Macpherson. They are very hard to get off track on offense. We just fought and fought. My guys are starting to believe in themselves. Clay coach Joshua Hoekstra took the brunt of the blame for the result citing Clay history as maybe creating an atmosphere that was outed Friday night. I take the blame for maybe not going for eld goals because we traditionally dont kick eld goals because we make the fourth and ones, said Hoekstra. We had 450 yards on offense and lost. Hats off to Orange Park. I think our guys didnt real ize how good they were going to be until it was too late. They answered every score we made. In the nal two minutes of the nailbiter, Clay looked to be engineering yet another Blue Devil fourth quarter win. With the score at 29-28 with 4:17 left on the clock, Keystone Heights BYE Keystone Heights rebounded from district loss to Bradford with 49-0 blowout of Umatilla. Keystone Heights returns to action September 28 with a home game against unbeaten 1A-Hawthorne with wins of 69-0, 60-0, 51-19 and 60-0. They (Hawthorne) are always very athletic and like to score fast, said Keystone Heights coach Chuck Dickinson. Our best bet is to control the ball and not let them stay on the eld. With the bye week, we get a chance to rest up for that one. Indians lead rusher Nick Channell again topped the rush stats with 152 yards on 12 carries against Umatilla with one score. Channell had a 61 yard run that led to a two yard score from teammate Ty Friedlin. We only punted once and ran for over 400 yards, said Dickinson. Defensively, we controlled the line of scrimmage. Friedlin also pounded for 149 yards on 10 carries with four of them for scores; one a 40 yarder. Sophomore Sterling Roberts added 45 yards of rushing with a score and a 40 yard long run. Sophomore tailback Kaleb Vojnovski returned to the lineup for the rst time sine an injury and added 64 yards on four carries with a 30 yarder his longest. Kaleb played some defense last week and is getting back into running shape and that will help our backeld, said Dickinson. Umatilla remains winless at 0-4. W EEK 5 FOOTBALL Keystone Heights linebacker Logan Murphy closes in on Umatilla ball carrier. Orange Park at Middleburg (OPHS 23, MHS 12) Orange Park gets a big win over district 5-5A stalwart Clay High and will keep moving toward a showdown with someone in that district later this season. Middleburg (1-2) returned to the win column against Englewood (1-3) in big numbers with 37-7 district 4-6A win Friday night. Bronco coach Karl Smeltzer liked his teams eort against Englewood and saw a spark of sorts for the rest of the season. Look at who we opened our season with and I think the little bit of success we had may have turned things around for them, said Smeltzer. We got beat up pretty good from Menendez, Fleming Island and Clay and we are very young. I think I saw something click against Englewood. Against Englewood, quarterback Joe Justino passed for two scores and ran for one with running back Tyler Bryant running for two more scores. Bryant nished with 90 rushing yards with Justino passing for 136 yards. Trevor Todd caught one score on a slant after a nifty punt return by wideout Anthony Havens that went 60 yards to the Ram ve yard line. From there, Justino hit Todd for the score. A reverse from Justino to Laron Bryant went 58 yards to set up another score. We were able to drive the ball downeld most of the night, said Smeltzer. A couple of big plays and we were in control. The Bronco defense got ve sacks with Devin Moody and Trevor Shearin getting two and defensive end Noah Janda getting the fth. Shearin also got an interception on a diving snag of a Ram pass. SJCDS BYE Spartans score 34; not enough GAINESVILLE Despite three touchdown strikes from quarterback Max Monroe, the St. Johns Country Day School football team lost a thrilling 53-34 match to St. Francis Catholic Friday night in Gainesville. Running back Matthew Kelley topped the pass catch ing game for the Spartans with 108 yards on seven passes with one touchdown. Running back Eli Morton had one pass for a 38 yard touchdown for St. Johns. Morton also rushed for 58 yards on 13 carries. Morton also had four tackles. Wide receiver Brady Walden had two pass catches for 50 yards wtih one a 35 yard touchdown. Walden also had ve tackles and one pass breakup. Max Arnold had four catches for 39 yards and a score with a 36 yarder his longest. St. Johns is now 1-1, 0-1 in conference play with the St. Francis loss.

With Buchholz smarting from early season losses to powerhouses Ocala Van guard and Columbia Lake City and Fleming Island returning key players to the lineup, the rst half looked like the Golden Eagles retroactive to 2017 with a dominating rst half performance from Ramirez and quar terback Dean Hyams, who shouldered four touchdown passes in the statistic-heavy opener. The Bobcats would have the comeback of a lifetime to tie the game 35-35 with less than a minute to play, send the game into overtime and then intercept Hyams on Fleming Islands rst play in overtime. By Mike Zima Correspondent ORANGE PARK Ridgeview High quarter back Tyler Huffs three touchdown passes were not enough to keep up with Palatkas big play offense as host Ridgeview suffered a 39-25 defeat in a District 5-5A opener marred by an ofciating controversy at the end of the rst half. The game started promisingly enough for Ridgeview. Tackle Stanley Jean-Baptiste sacked McKinnon to force a three-and-out on the games opening series. Huff then di rected the Ridgeview offense on a 55-yard march, converting a third and 18 with a 21 yard scramble along the way. Sophomore Spencer Calise capped the drive with a 10 yard touchdown reception. Matt Kozioleks kick made the score 7-0 half way through the rst quarter. But as the game wore on, Ridgeview could not contain the Palatka trio of Mitchell McKinnon, Jaylyn Sessions and receiver Treyvon Williams. McKinnon com pleted 11 or 17 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 83 yards and a third score. Sessions ran for 147 yards and a score on 20 carries. Williams aver aged a glittering 28.6 yards per catch on ve receptions. His 38 yard catch and run got Palatka on the scoreboard late in the rst quarter. Each time Palatka needed a big play from one of its stars, they came through as the Panthers amassed 474 yards of total offense without turning the ball over. Ridgeview was without four skill posi tion players, and it showed. The hosts were not able to run their high-speed, no huddle offense at its usual pace, and never estab lished a running game outside of Huffs oc casional scrambles. Huff led the hosts with 70 yards rushing on 10 carries. We could not get a rhythm, said Rid geview coach Cameron Porch afterwards. It was uncharacteristic of our offense. The controversy came in the closing moments of the rst half. With 20 seconds until halftime, Palatka had the ball with a rst and goal at the Ridgeview four yard line. Sessions lost a yard on a run up the middle. With the clock running, McKinnon lofted a fade towards Williams that fell incomplete with three seconds left, stop ping the clock. Before the next play, Pal atka was called for illegal motion. After the ball was set back ve yards for the penalty, the referee blew his whistle and wound his arm, mistakenly signaling to the clock op erator to start the clock, which ran down to 0:00 before the ball was snapped. On the play which ensued, McKinnon threw incomplete on a pass broken up by Rid geview linebacker Dominic Staneld. Rid geview headed toward their locker room, only to be called back to the eld. Accord ing to Porch, the referee told him that the side judge had blown a whistle as the clock struck 0:00, thinking that the half was over as the third down play was occur ring. According to the referee, some play ers stopped playing, or might have stopped playing, when they heard the whistle. The decision was made to repeat third down. McKinnon took the snap and red a slant pass intended for receiver Abrie Williams. The pass was incomplete, but interference rfnftbf SEE EAGLES, 35 was called against Ridgeview. The ball was moved half way to the goal line, and since a half cannot end on a defensive penalty, Palatka was given one additional untimed down. McKinnon took advantage of this chance by connecting with Abrie Williams, who landed in the eld of play but was able to lunge into the end zone with a Panthers cornerback draped over him. Thus, Palatka went into halftime with a 12-7 lead. That was a complete hose job, said Porch after the game.

Coach (Karen Moritz) told me to not go out real fast for the rst mile or she was going to pull me off the course, said Wal lizada, who lost his timing chip last week at the UNF Invite and stopped to retrieve it in a fast eld that pulled away quickly as Wallizada nished sixth. I saw her at about two miles and she told me I could go. So, I went. Wallizada, who nished in 16 minutes, 40.93 seconds behind winner Charles Hicks of Bolles split of 15:55.17, bided his time in seventh place until the 2.5 mile mark then spied Bear and put a target on his back. I knew if I was near him, I might run a fast time, said Wallizada. I got next to him and then pushed hard. Wallizadas nish, with junior Will Live say, who has improved race by race, in 19th place at 17:22.50 and Landon Opp, another junior, returning to full strength and nishing just 10 seconds from Livesay, bolstered the Golden Eagles top team n ish ahead of Bishop Kenny and Nease high schools. Fleming Island nished with 124 points with Kenny and Nease locked at 139 and Creekside fourth at 143. Hicks, the Class 2A champion last year, pulled away quickly from the eld and sep arated for a solo jaunt on the Bartram Trail course leaving Fernandina Beach High senior John Sorensen and Buchholz Ca den Monk to fend off Wallizada. Bear was with Sorensen and Monk until the halfway mark with Wallizada cruising behind in a four-man pack with Neases Justin Tackling and Rheinhardt Wilson, a freshman and middle school state champion, and Bar tram Trails Evan Ritter. Sorensen nished 18th in Class 2A last year with Ritter 42nd in Class 3A. Monk, third in district 1-4A in 2017 in 16:42.49, had a horric region race and nished a disappointing 94th in 17:27.75. Wallizada and Bear both nished out of the top 16 at their respective region races last year; Wallizada 95th in 18:27.52 and Bear 18th in 17:14.84. With one more circuit around the Bar tram Trail baseball and softball elds be fore returning to the nish area, Wallizada crept past his pack and kept his eye on the front pack. I felt okay with the guys I was running with until we hit the elds again and then I made a move to catch John Bears group, said Wallizada. When I got to them, I still felt strong and just kept going. Moritz, who has tried to corral Wal lizadas running energy to be strongest at the end of his races, commented that her warnings to him are in jest, but he under stood her intention. He likes to take off at the start and then he struggles to hold on, said Moritz. Hes very strong at the end and if I can keep him thinking about that nish strong, hell see results.

Bear, fourth last week at UNF with a strong 16:19.60 split, struggled with the heat at Bartram Trail, according to coach Doug Burrows, and faded to ninth in 16:52.28. He just had a bad day, said Orange Park coach Doug Burrows of Bears nish. Its good to have one of those days now, then later. Orange Park eventually nished 11th with 313 points with a rapidly-improving Middleburg High team under coaches Paul Grybb and Kyle Brown taking 17th ahead of Oakleaf at 19th. Oakleaf junior Dylan Nelson nished 23rd in 17:28.76 with Orange Park ju nior Ledarius Dumas 58th at 18:10.73.

September 20, 2018 CLAY TODAY 31 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Randy Lefko Sports Editor JACKSONVILLE With a week of power strokes from sophomore hitter Jasmine Robinson, the Fleming Island High volley ball team rebounded from back-to-back debilitating district losses to both Buch holz and Bartram Trail to reset the teams playoff aspirations. We were at a point where we were making too many mistakes and not play ing as a unit, said Fleming Island coach Amy Walker, who is trying to exorcise the demons of the past ve years of district seminal ousts from the very rugged dis trict 4-8A lineup; Buchholz, Bartram Trail, Creekside and Oakleaf. I think we got to a point this week where we were all on the same page. Id rather them hiccup now then at playoff time. First on the block was a tough dual match win over Ridgeview High, the threetime district 4-6A champions under coach Destiny Brightman, a former assistant coach with Walker in the very consistent playoff runs at Orange Park High School from years past. Against Ridgeview, Robinson emerged as the top hitter for Walker with 11 kills on the night as the Panthers tried to double up on Fleming Islands top hitter Rayna Durden with blockers Kaelye Kellar and Aubrey Brown. Fleming Island won convincingly 3-0, but lulled in game two with Ridgeview surging to an early 11-7 lead, but then fall ing 25-22 to set up the 25-17 nal for the win. We have a feeling sometimes that we got this and I have to shake them out of it against tough teams like Ridgeview that will ght each game, said Walker. They nished strong, but I knew Ridgeview would not back down.

Fleming Island defeated top-ranked Bartram Trail 3-0. with a 2-0 win over previously unbeaten New Smyrna Beach, a Class 7A Final Four nisher in 2017, then proceeded to wreck Ponte Vedra 2-0, 4A-Providence (region nalist) 2-1 and defending Class 1A champi on Sneads 2-0 to set up a rematch of sorts with the defending Class 6A champion Ponte Vedra squad that only graduated two players from their 2017 roster. That game was a test of endurance and mental focus, said Walker. All the teams playing that tournament got very physical games on a tight schedule and we lasted to the nal with a little grit. Against New Smyrna Beach, won 2510, 25-15, Fleming Island roared to the lead behind seven kills from Durden and ve from Lyara Rosario, the other outside hitter.. Robinson had three kills plus three blocks at the net. Against Providence, won in a tough 2523, 24-26 and 15-3 overtime, Fleming Is land had to regroup behind freshman Maya Walkers ve kills at the net as Robinson got stymied to just one scoring shot and Fleming Island was limited to just three blocked shots. Against Ponte Vedra, in the champion ship game, Fleming Island won handily 25-14 and 25-15 behind eight scores from Durden, ve from Walker and three from both Robinson and senior Madison Mas as the Ponte Vedra blocking personnel seemed a second or two late to the fast-attacking front of Fleming Island. We tried to keep them guessing by swinging the ball from side to side on the court, said Walker. We needed an edge against their height and our libero, Jange lyz Ramirez made 15 digs on their front hit ters to keep the ball alive for us. Fleming Island will further test their playoff readiness with Bartram Trail and Buchholz both visiting the Golden Eagle gymnasium this week (Sept. 18 and Sept. 20) with Creekside and Oakleaf the follow ing week. Also at the River City Jam, Oakleaf won two matches and lost one; beating Johns Creek High (Ga.) and Tallahasse Maclay before falling to Pedro Menendez, before losing to Florida High in the rst round of the championship bracket. In other brackets, Clay won one match; 2-1 against Efngham County (Ga.), and lost two: Bolles and Stanton. Orange Park nished with one win; 2-0 over Trinity High before nishing fourth after a loss to Bolles in the third place match. Keystone Heights won two matches; 2-0 over Duval Charter and 2-0 over University Christian in pool play then nished third overall with a win over Fernandina Beach.

Clay started at their own 42 yard line and pounded running backs Abbott Taylor and AlQuarius Ray into the teeth of the Raider defense with two passes to wideout Spen cer Lesage putting Clay at the Orange Park 19 at 1:23. From there, Clay quarterback Turner Erstad lofted an end zone pass to Lesage in the corner with Raider defensive back Isiah Blair that produced a jump ball won by Blair that seemingly put the dagger in the heart of the Clay sideline. We knew they were going to try to nd their number 4 (Lesage), said Blair. I knew I was going to go up and get it. I was thinking of trying to run it out, but my teammates held me. Blairs pick put the Raiders on the 20 for a nal series, but Clay High coach Joshua Hoekstra methodically used two time outs to counter Orange Park quarter back Vinny Walker kneeling twice after the snap. Forced to punt, Clay was looking at a nal minute from near mideld for a nal surge, but LeSage fumbled the punt to end the game. The win puts the Raiders at 3-1 and un beaten in district play with Baker County beating Pedro Menendez and Palatka beat ing Ridgeview putting the Raiders right into the mix for playoff possibilities. In the rst quarter, Clay opened with offensive efciency behind Ray and a pass from Erstad to Cedrick Brown to move the chains with Lesage taking a Wildcat snap to the 17 of Orange Park. Kendy sacked Erstad on rst down, but Taylor powered through the defensive line to paydirt and a 7-0 Clay lead with six min utes off the clock. Knowing that his Raiders had to answer the opening salvo, Macpherson blasted the Clay defensive with wideout Terrance Johnson going 16 yards on rst down to set a tone. Handoffs to tailback Alex Col lier gearing up behind guard Silas Little got gains of six and eight to the Clay 42 where two penalty ags for offsides by Clay moved the chains to the Clay 32. From there, Walker found wideout Hunter Moore in the back of the end zone for six. With the score at 7-6, Macpherson put Raiders from page 28 in his heavy package and got Charles to pound in for a prophetic two point conver sion. That might be the play of the game al though it was so early in the game, said Macpherson. We hit all the PAT kicks and Kendy does that winds up being the differ ence. Clay again pounded the middle of the Raider defense with Ray rumbling in from 28 yards out to up the score to 14-8 with 8:46 left in the half. Clay is going to use all four downs to get their 10 yards because they are so con dent of their kids, said Macpherson. Orange Park went air to counter the Clay bludgeoning with Walker nding John son in full stride in front of the Raider bench for a 51 yard play to the Clay 36. Walker calmly hit Holton with a 33 yard scoring pass to put the game at 15-14 with Jean Brevilles second PAT kick of the night. Trading blow for blow, Clay roared right back on offense with Erstad going 14 on a scramble to the Clay 46 where Taylor broke into the secondary for 26 yards to the Raider 19. Clay pounded again with Ray and Taylor setting up a ve yard score for Ray and Clay now ahead 21-15 with 3:38 left in the half. From their own 16 after the kickoff, Or ange Park let loose with Collier speeding out of the backeld for six on rst down and, on third down, blasting 70 yards in front of the Clay bench for a 22-21 Raider lead with 2:22 still left in the half. Me and Silas (Little) and Cedric (Flan ders, offensive tackle) got a thing going on now, said Collier. Im small and can hide behind them, then jet away. Clay looked to add one more before the half and took the kickoff start from the 30 to the Raider two yard line in the remain ing two minutes only to have Charles stuff Erstad on third and goal as the clock ticked off the nal seconds. Erstad set up the nal surge with a 45 yard pass to Brown from mideld to the four yard line where LeSage got two and wideout Derek Holt was out of bounds with an end zone catch before Charles stop. In their rst drive of the second half, after Clay defensive end Kenneth Johnson stopped Collier on a third and six handoff to force a punt, Clay took over at their own 27 and immediately crushed any thoughts that Orange Park may have had of a Blue Devil nap as Taylor busted off right tackle and sprinted 60 yards to the Raider 13 to set up a one yard plunge by Ray that put Clay up 28-22 in less than two minutes. Knowing that Clay was going to come out amped for the second half, Macpherson knew his guys had to stay calm and react. Im kind of a lunatic out there because I love this game so much, but they have to stay in the game and not get crazy no mat ter what Im doing on the sideline, said Macpherson. They reacted. From the Raider 19, Walker went to Johnson again for 22 yards on a slant pat tern to get the offense revved up for a re taliatory strike. I think my guys respect me and trust me as their quarterback, said Walker, a junior varsity athlete last year thrust into a starters role due to a player transfer and Macphersons need to have Johnson amongst his playmakers downeld. I can look them in the eye in the huddle and they know I got their back. Walker called his own number on a quarterback draw for seven before setting up a ea icker from Walker to Collier to wideout Umar Young that caught the Blue Devil defense off balance and got Orange Park on the Clay two yard line. Two snaps to Johnson in shotgun got the score and the Raiders 29-28 lead with 6:12 left in the third period. Clay wanted to end the Raider attack on their home turf and settled in to just grind the ball to the end zone with Taylor and Ray pounding between the tackles to the Orange Park 37, but defensive plays from Alex Moore, Orange Parks 5-3 defensive tackle, thwarted one attempt. An unsports manlike ag on fourth down put Clay at the Raider 12 with a rst down. Lesage took the snap and swept left on his way to the corner of the end zone, but was upended by linebacker Jacob Moore and lost the ball out of the end zone giving Orange Park pos session of the ball at the Raider 20. Orange Park stalled in four downs on the opportunity and Clay took over near mideld with a full quarter of time left. Taylor and Ray went to work and a 32 yard pass to Brown put Clay inside the Raider 20 looking to go ahead, but, on fourth and one at the six yard line, Charles again came up with the big stop on Taylor to end the effort.

Last Friday, it took Oakleaf less than three minutes to strike rst on a ground attack led by quarterback Walter Simmons III and King. On third down and eight, King ran 40 yards for a rst down at the Bar tram 23 yard line with Simmons following that with a 15 yard scamper to the six. From there, Simmons barreled in for the quick 7-0 lead. Bartram Trail played the role of the big boy on the block taking a punch from the new up and comers while they calmly and precisely rushed and passed their way down the eld getting an average of 6-12 yards each play. They would easily score their rst touchdown in just over three minutes of game time to tie the game at 7-7. Intent on keeping pace, Simmons went to the air to wideout Terrance Anthony for a 58 yard catch but Anthony fumbled the ball out of the end zone to return posses sion to the Bears. On the next Bears series, Knights line backer Dexter Moore blasted through and caused a Bears fumble that linebacker Marcus Anthony scooped up at the Knights 20 yard line. Simmons and the Oakleaf of fense stalled at the Oakleaf 20 forcing a punt just outside of the end zone. A high snap to punter Tyler Laberis would sail into the endzone with Laberis attempt ing to throw out of the end zone only to be intercepted at the 10 yard line. Two plays later, Bartram Trail scored and went ahead 14-7. Bartram Trail tried an onsides kick that left Oakleaf mideld. From the nine yard line, King would crash in to tie the game at 14-14. After a Bears touchdown made the score 20-14, Simmons hit two passes; a 25 yarder and a 12 yarder to Antonio Mar shall to put Oakleaf at the Bears four yard line. Simmons ran the ball in to give the lead back to Oakleaf 21-20 with 5:02 to the half. Having the ability to convert on third downs has been our calling card all year so far and it was an unbelievable effort by our offense all night said Garis. Simmons again would convert two third down plays before throwing a 50 yard touchdown pass to Sean Washington to push the lead to 28-20 with less than two minutes until halftime. Bartram Trail answered with a 45 yard touchdown pass to A.J. Jones with one minute left to close the gap to 28-26. Not to be outdone; Simmons would nd Anthony on a 60 yard touchdown pass with less than 30 seconds left to push the lead to 35-26. The Bears took all of 90 seconds to score on their rst possession of the sec ond half with a 24 yard touchdown pass to Grifn Helm who made a difcult juggling catch to get the Bears to within two points at 35-33.

Against Elon University, the Bulls season opener, Roberts had one tackle assist in the 34-14 Bulls win. Against Georgia Tech, a 49-38 win, Roberts had two solo tackles and one assist. South Florida is ranked 27th in most NCAA polls. King would take multiple runs down the eld all the way to the Bartram ve yard line. King would take one play off to catch his breath then score on a two yard run for a 41-33 lead and it looked as if defense would be optional in the second half for both teams. Bartram Trail would answer Kings runs with their own drive that resulted in a 26 yard touchdown run by A.J. Jones to pull the game back to within two points at 4139 with the failed two point conversion. Oakleaf running back Adrian Grey chipped in with a 15 yard run with 2:48 re maining in the 3rd quarter for a 48-39 lead in a game that was quickly turning into an episode of Can You Top this! The Oakleaf defense dodged a bullet on a dropped pass by a wide open Bears play er that would have been an easy touchdown that turned into a punt back to the Knights. King would make the Bears pay with a 53 yard touchdown run with 1:17 left in the third quarter to give Oakleaf a command ing (But not comfortable) 55-39 lead. The Oakleaf defense decided to make a play as Chrystian Sellers would intercept a pass on the Bears next possession and return it to mideld and the big boy of the neighborhood seemed to be shell shocked by the Knights. Our defensive guys had cramps and rolled ankles all night. We even had to put a guy at middle linebacker that had never played there before. We just kept being positive with the defense and they made some big plays especially in the second half said Garis. King would then deliver a knockout blow with a 47 yard touchdown run to break the game wide open at 62-39 with 10:30 left in the contest. However, Bartram Trail would answer with a two minute drive to pull back to within 17 points at 62-45. Right on cue, a third Oakleaf running back, Adrian Grey, would respond with a 45 yard run down to the 10 yard line to set up King for another knockout shot in just 25 seconds to take a 69-45 lead with just over eight minutes remaining. Bartram Trail would add one more touchdown with ve minutes left but Oak leaf was able to keep the ball and convert rst downs for the nal four minutes to leave with a record-setting 69-53 district win.

Fleming Island looked to Ramirez to start the drive, then on second down and eight to go, Hyams found tight end Sam Snyder for a 40 yard strike for score number two. The offense executed good the rst half. Sam came up big, he caught some balls that he needed to catch, said Springs. Dean didnt over-throw him and threw some really good strikes. They were on-point. Hyams ended the night with over 180 passing yards with four touchdowns. On the point after, Fletcher would pull the ball left and miss, 13-0. On the return drive, Buchholz would get one rst down before punting again, but Ramirez got loose on a 40 yard scamper that resulted in no points. In the second quarter, still driving, after a Fleming Island fumble and recovery that had the Golden Eagles staring at a second and 18, Hyams found last weeks standout Brody Domenico open in the endzone for the third Fleming Island unanswered score of 19-0. Avery Coussens would get another au dition at place kicker, but the snap was in the dirt. The returning drive by Buchholz saw plenty of action from their go-to runner, 56, 155 pounder EJ Cason. Cason would use his speed to dart around Golden Eagles all night with a 46 yarder resulting in the rst Bobcat touchdown at 8:27 left in the second quarter. Bobcat kicker Muhannad Farahat would be Mr. Automatic as he put the ball down the center each attempt, 19-7. The next Fleming Island play could have been the play of the game. With a touchback putting the ball on the Fleming Island 20, on rst down, Snyder went on a tear from the right side. Hyams saw him open and let it y. On the catch, Snyder went 80 yard in one play to put the score at 25-7. Springs would opt for a two-point con version, only to have Hyams stopped on a QB option. The returning Bobcat drive included a 40 yard pass. The deep pass exposed a chink in the armor of Fleming Island de fense that would come back and hurt late in the game. We just have to tighten up when things get late into the quarters and stay mentally sharp, said Springs. Our guys stopped communicating. We just have to stay men tally sharp. The drive continued and resulted in another Bobcat score. 25-14. With 4:06 left to play until half, Ramirez would have another breakout run for 37 yards. The Eagles continued driving down the clock. With 33 seconds left until half, on second down with ve yards to score, Hyams found Kaleb Seybolt all alone in the endzone for a 32-14 lead with Coussens kick. At halftime, Buchholz made major ad justments. They came out and switched up some stuff on us and they executed it well, said Springs. As the fourth quarter started, both teams failed to move the ball until wide out Eugene Oglesby grabbed a 38 yard pass to set up a 30 yard eld goal from Coussens to put the game at 35-14. Starting on their 30 after a Fleming Is land drive stalled, Buchholz would be in tercepted by linebacker Darius Harris, but running back Brian Maddox fumbled the ball back to Buchholz. Noting the deep coverage issue earlier in the game, Buchholz went deep and found a receiver yards deeper than the cover age for another touchdown with 4:51 left to play. Another good point after put the score at 35-27. With an on-sides kick attempt recov ered by Fleming Island, the Golden Eagles botched a fourth and one on their own 36 with Ramirez falling two inches short of the rst down. Buchholz took over with 1:52 left and converted a fourth and two for a rst down that got more yards with a facemask ag to the Fleming Island 13. With 1:23 left, an incomplete pass fell, but not before Fleming Island was called for pass interference. The half the distance to the goal penalty gave Buchholz 1:11 left to score. A run and two incomplete passes saw fourth down, three yards to score and 35.3 seconds left in the game. The play action to EJ Cason drew in the secondary and left Bobcat Blake Mitchell all alone for an easy pass score. Needing two points to tie, Bobcat quarterback Camden Orth found Isaiah Mitchem in the endzone for the twopoint conversion. On the ensuing kickoff, Fleming had 30.8 seconds to try anything they could. A deep pass to Max Micheals fell, a scram ble by Hyams and a no-time left intercep tion would send the game into overtime. Fleming Island lost the coin ip and Buchholz chose to defend rst. On the rst play, Hyams saw an open Sam Snyder coming from right to left. His pass was slightly behind Snyder and was picked off by Bobcat Victor Nelson. Denying the Golden Eagles in one play, Eagles from page 29 the Bobcats needed only score and they win. On rst down, they set up to attempt a eld goal. Fleming Island lined up in the neutral zone and even though the ball sailed perfect, the play was blown dead. On the second Muhannad Farahat attempt, Springs tried to ice the kicker and called time out. The ball again sailed perfect, but didnt count as the whistle sounded before the play. On the third attempt, Farahat again was perfect and sent the Golden Eagles home 38-35 in overtime. Asked about re bounding from this, Springs said Theyll come back. Come back ready to play. They know they played a great game. Dont be surprised this week if an email goes out from the Fleming Island athletic department to all members of the boys and girls soccer teams looking for a young man or woman to come out and audition for the starting role as the Golden Eagle place kicker. Fleming Island returns home to try and keep their perfect intra-Clay County record as the face the visiting Ridgeview Panthers. Ridgeview, 3-1 on the season, is coming off a 39-25 home loss from Palatka. CORRESPONDENT PHOTO BY RAY DIMONDA Fleming Island slot back Brody Domenico latches on to rst half scoring pass from quarterback Dean Hyams in Golden Eagles 38-35 overtime loss to district foe Gainesville Buchholz. the referees to dictate the outcome of the game. As the referees exited the eld after the Palatka touchdown, Ridgeview Athletic Di rector John Sgromolo, III, got into a heated discussion with them and drew two un sportsmanlike conduct penalties. For the game, Ridgeview was penalized 13 times for 130 yards. Palatka was penalized nine times for 70 yards. Ridgeview had only total 138 yards in the rst half, well below their average. On Ridgeviews next possession, Huff was looking for Spencer Calise on a post pat tern, but his overthrow was picked off by Palatka safety DShawn Shaw, who fol lowed a convoy of blockers 46 yards into the end zone for a 19-7 Palatka lead. The turning point came on the next Pal atka possession, after Ridgeviews Brian Jackson had scored on a crossing pat tern from six yards out to cut the decit to 19-13. Needing 16 yards for a rst down, McKinnon gained 22 on a third down scramble. On the next play, he bobbled the snap, preventing him from executing an intended hand-off to Sessions. The senior ran left, broke the hold of Ridgeviews defensive end Panthers from page 29 behind the line of scrimmage, and sprinted down the left sideline to give Palatka a 2513 lead with 11:13 remaining. Palatkas Willie Fells went for it on a fourth and one in the rst quarter, and his decision to fake a punt from his own 14 yard line sealed the outcome. After send ing the Ridgeview offense off the eld with no points after a rst and goal at the two yard line, Palatka faced fourth and two af ter a running into the kicker had brought the ball ve yards closer to the rst down marker. Upback Keyshawn Russell took the snap and bowled straight ahead for three yards and a rst down at the 16. On the next play, Sessions ran right, was hemmed in, cut left across the eld and outran ev eryone 84 yards to the end zone to give Palatka an insurmountable 32-13 lead. Its the districts, said Fells of his deci sions. We had no fear. Sessions converted the fourth down in the rst quarter with a short run, and McKinnon made the move pay off with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Treyvon Wil liams. Ridgeviews Jackson had two touch down receptions on the night, while Rolan do Grey pitched in with a rushing touch down. Ridgeview goes on the road to face Clay County rival Fleming Island.

Jacksonville maintained a lead into the second half, but the Eagles offensive re power was too much for freshman keeper Matt Levy as the Dolphins fell 5-3. Jacksonville started strong in the rst half, scoring their rst goal in the sixth minute off the boot of senior Selemani Baruani. Baruanis goal was assisted by freshman Reed Davis, who wasnt done contributing to the cause. Early in the 26th minute the Dolphins were awarded a corner kick, which was served up nicely by Inti Antunez, and then touched by Steven Saunders. Davis took the pass and scored his rst collegiate goal, pushing the lead to two. The Eagles got back into the match toward the end of the rst half when Ja vier Corbonell scored with seven minutes remaining. The Dolphins took the 2-1 lead into the locker room. Jacksonvilles Nazar Deputat scored a goal in the 56th minute to give the Dol phins their third goal, the most theyve scored in a single match this season. How ever, less than two minutes later Georgia Southern came back with a goal of their own on a penalty kick. It seemed as though each team would continue to trade goals, but the Eagles tightened up on defense and their scoring chances continued. Carbonell, who had already scored in the rst half, went on a tear netting his second, third, and fourth goals of the match all in the nal twenty minutes. Jack sonville was unable to keep pace with the Eagles, resulting in the 5-3 decision. Levy ended the night with four total saves, while the Phins managed 17 shots to Georgia Southerns 19. CHS Stoel nets go-ahead goal MELBOURNE Florida Tech (2-2-1) made the most of its home eld advan tage on Sunday as the team won 3-1 over Valdosta State (2-2-0), to move to 2-0 at Rick Stottler Field this season. The Panthers shared the workload in the attacking third as Keira McCarthy (3), Elisabeth Stoffel (2) and Maria Mu noz (3) all netted a goal. Stoffel, a Clay High School graduate, served up teammate Keira McCarthy for the Panthers rst goal of the rst half to go up 1-0 as the halftime break ap proached. Stoffel is a red shirt freshman and one of the top scorers out of Clay High. The Blazers caught the Panthers nap ping to start the second half as they knot ted the game at 1-1 less than a minute after the whistle. Florida Tech responded quickly as Stoffel found the back of the net for the game-winner. Later in the half, Munoz beat her defender in a one-on-one situa tion and tacked on the insurance goal to bring the nal score to 3-1. The Crimson and Gray will go back on the road on Wednesday, Sept. 12, when the women head up I-95 to St. Augustine, Florida for another regional match, this time with Flagler College. First kick is set for 7 p.m. on the pitch at Saints Field. Maria Sanchez Recuero (2-2-1) occu pied the space in between the posts as she tallied ve saves on the afternoon.
