SEE MILLAGE, 8 SEE MEDICINE, 16 By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS The Clay County School District is preparing to update its poli cy governing how medicine is administered to students to including medical marijuana. The policy change is one of many require ments governing bodies, such as county commissions and city council were forced to pass as part of the Leg islatures bill govern ing medical marijuana, which was approved by Florida voters in 2016. After months of review and legal re search, the school dis trict drafted a policy it will consider approving at the Oct. 4 meeting. Board members discussed the policy Tues day morning at the superintendents monthly agenda-setting workshop held in Green Cove Springs at district ofces. As drafted, the policy requires medical marijuana should a student be approved for the drug be dispensed in either an oil, a patch or an edible. In 2017, we were asked to revise our pol icy, said Clay County School District Superin tendent Addison Davis. [Clay County School Board Attorney David DAgata] and staff has worked with a number of school districts throughout the state to make sure we have a Change to include medical marijuana Addison Davis By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS The Clay County millage rate for scal year 2018-19 will re mains the same rate as the current budget year that ends Sept. 30. At the Sept. 25 Board of County Commis sioners meeting, the BCC approved the nal millage rate of 8.101 after a 5-0 vote. While this means that no homeowners will see in creased or decreased taxes for this upcom ing scal year as a result of the millage rate, homeowners could still see changes in their property taxes. If they do, though, that will be because of changes in their property value. The millage rate is effectively the same, said Clay County Auditor Mike Price. The property values for most people went up though so more money will be brought in be cause of that. Millage rates are complex and can be parsed out by governments to show exactly where funds go. For example, 8.101 is the County Services, Unincorporated Services Fund, Law Enforcement Fund, Fire Control Fund and Lake Asbury special taxing district mills added up. There is an additional 3 mills that could be added as a result of the Chal lenger Roadway special taxing district, bring ing the total millage rate to 11.101, but only a handful of people will be affected by this, so, according to Price, 99.9 percent of Clay County property owners will see a millage By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS A Bradford County woman not only cut her daily commute in half but changed her life dramatically after becoming the new est resident of Green Cove Springs. For over 15 years, Cathy Davy commuted from the trailer she rented in Starke to her job in Orange Park. The trip was 45 minutes there and 45 minutes back. Now, after putting in over 300 hours sweating over paint brushes and power tools, her com mute will take less than half as long after connecting with Clay County Habitat for Humanity. Im just so excited for this, for all of this, Davy said. Im at a loss for words. While the house at 1507 North St. in Green Cove Springs has been there for some time, it didnt become a home until Sept. 21, when Habitat ofcials dedicated the house in Davys honor. Davy received the key to open the doors to her new home and new life. Alongside Davy was her daughter, Ashaureah Bass, 15, as well as sev eral of Davys family members from the Starke area like her sister, her brother, her son and even her niece.

Fleming Island-based developer Rae lynn Homes presented a plan for 11 homes, Cottages by the Cove, with a minimum size of 1,200 square foot houses on 5,000 square foot lots. City planners said the number of houses in the plans may change after accounting for other factors such as stormwater. The property at 915 Bay St. is bordered by Tucker Street to the east, Cove Street to south and the CSX railway line to the west near the Green Cove Springs Police Department building. The plans were passed unanimously by the citys Planning and Zoning Commission in August. Adding homes valued around $150,000 is what the city needs more of, added Council Member Steven Kelley, cit ing personal experience. I do support a project like this because I was recently trying to buy a home in the same price range, Kelley said. It was re ally difcult. Resident Karen Kenney said she had a petition with 150 resident signatures opposing the plan. She also voiced con cerns with the rezoning and adding a large amount of people to a condensed area would complicate parking. Nobody likes the idea of this, Kenney said. Council Member Mitch Timberlake said the homes were necessary to deal with the citys future growth projections. Timber lake and council member Van Royal agreed the citys lack of affordable housing was an issue that can only be eased by more de velopment of smaller homes. There is not a question that Clay Coun ty, and by inference Green Cove, have a huge shortage of workforce homes, Tim berlake said. If you move to Green Cove and you have $300,000-$400,000 to buy a house, its pretty easy. Kenney, who said she had attended gov ernment meetings in the city for 60 years, argued the expansion would lead to Green Cove Springs losing its current feel. That area was an honest area. A com munity. Green Cove Springs isnt subdivi sions. Were neighborhood, Kenney said. We know the grandkids. We know the names of the dogs and cats. Council members then unanimously voted to amend the Future Land Use Map and the zoning of the property to accom modate residential medium density. Coun cil members will hear the proposal again for a second and nal reading Oct. 2. Green Cove Springs also said goodbye to City Manager Danielle Judd. She will remain as a special advisor for the next couple of weeks as she assists incoming City Manager Steve Kennedy. The city council, County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos, Keystone Heights City Manager Scott Kornegay and sev eral audience members wished the best for Judd, who has served as Green Cove Springs city manager since 2011. She thanked staff and council members. I have a lot of good memories from whats happened here, Judd said. I be lieve the city is going to move forward and be in a better place. New homes coming to Green Cove Springs By Joshua Torres For Clay Today FLEMING ISLAND When most kids come into their parents room to tell them they want to play an instrument they may get a little excited, but some will probably won der if their child will even stick with it. But when that same child says he want to play drums, then the parents might get a little concerned with how loud their house is about to become. Carson Franks parents responded with a mix of joy and uncertainty as this was something they had never gone through. Weve kinda learned along the way as hes gone through but its been fun, said Richard Frank, Carsons father. The Fleming Island High School senior has recently been selected to be on the All American Drum Line for Drumlines of America. Drumlines of America collects audition tapes from people all across the country for the All American Drum Line. He also was accepted to be a Drum Corps International member of the Loui siana Stars and spent the past summer practicing and performing. But his list of accomplishments does not stop there. He has recently been ac cepted as a member of the Macys Great American Marching Band. So, Clay County viewers will have the chance to see Carson as he marches with the rest of the band as part of the Macys Thanksgiving Day Pa rade this year. Mara Rose, the director of bands for Fleming Island High, said she believes its so great to see Carson do so much with his talent. We work hard to motivate students to achieve their goals, said Rose. Seeing that happen is truly fullling. Carson said he practices drumming ev ery single day. Its kinda become one of the things that I revolve my life around, said Carson. I pretty much think about it all the time. He said that he practices drumming anywhere between 1-3 hours a day but if he has the chance he spends the entire day practicing. It wasnt all about drumming when he rst started performing music. His rst venture into music was when he started playing piano at a young age. He rst joined his junior high band and played the alto saxophone. But Carson said that the moment he saw the drum corps he knew that is where he wanted to be. All of this practicing and love for drum line shows. His list of accomplishments and awards since 2013 is probably longer than what most of have accomplished by the time that we reach 40-years-old. But Carson is not stopping anytime soon as he hopes to be accepted as a mem PHOTO PROVIDED BY THE LOUISIANA STARS Carson Frank, at left, is shown here performing with The Louisiana Stars, a competitive junior drum and bugle corps that is based in Lafayette, Louisiana and performs in Drum Corps International competitions. Fleming Island student keeps drumming ber of the Boston Crusaders, the third oldest junior drum and bugle corps in the U.S., as well as Music City Drum and Bugle Corps in Nashville, Tenn. He also hopes to be accepted as a member of the Army All American Marching Band. Carson is planning to attend college after he graduates but has not decided on where. He has already been accepted to the University of North Florida and the University of Central Florida. But even in applying to colleges he still nds a way to bring drum corps into the picture. I learned about the long days in the hot sun practicing, pushing my mind and body beyond what I ever thought I could, said Carson, on his college application essay. I discovered the joy in succeeding in a task with others.

en-USBy Craig R. Seatonen-USIen-US en-USdont want anybody staringen-US down at me lying in a cofn! en-US Dust to dust ashes to ashes, en-US thats my philosophy. Send me owers en-US while Im living Ive always said. When en-US my time comes I just want to be creen-US -en-US mated.en-US Thats good. At least youve made en-US that important decision so your loved en-US ones dont have to decide it for you.en-US Cremation is en-US gaining popularen-US -en-US ity and people en-US are choosing this en-US method for dispoen-US-en-US sition of their reen-US -en-US mains more than en-US any time in recent en-US history. The reaen-US-en-US sons vary from en-US person to person, en-US but lower cost en-US seems to be one of en-US the biggest factors en-US driving this trend.en-US Another reason is that it simplies, en-US or at least seems to simplify, the order en-US of events when a death occurs. en-US Cremation sounds easy, clean and en-US worry-free.en-US While this sounds plausible its not en-US entirely true. Here are some points to en-US consider when choosing cremation for a en-US family member who has recently died, or en-US even for your own choice in the future, en-US a prearrangement. Like most things in en-US life, being informed and educated about en-US cremation and other end-of-life details en-US helps to make the process a bit easier. en-US First, be sure of your motivation.en-US Selecting cremation simply because en-US its less expensive may not be the wisen-US-en-US est choice. Yes, we should only spend en-US money on things for which we nd value; en-US but when talking about the disposition en-US of something as precious and emotionen-US-en-US ally-complex as the physical body which en-US carried our loved ones soul (spirit, life en-US force, essence) for their whole life, wed en-US do well to think it through.en-US Second, be sure you know what creen-US-en-US mation entails.en-US What happens during the actual creen-US-en-US mation process is sometimes a tough en-US emotional pill to swallow. Imagining en-US your loved ones body during the creen-US -en-US mation itself can be very taxing on your en-US thoughts both now and in the future, en-US especially given the range of emotions en-US which accompany the loss of someone en-US close to you. en-US Granted, some would say the same en-US about picturing what happens to someen-US-en-US one buried in a casket. Either way its en-US important youre at peace with your deen-US -en-US cision. Its rarely benecial to delve too en-US deeply into what actually happens to the en-US remains (during cremation or traditional en-US burial), but cremation is an irreversible en-US process, so be certain this is what you en-US want.en-US Thirdly, just because cremation is en-US chosen as the nal disposition of the en-US remains doesnt preclude you and your en-US family from setting aside some time to en-US celebrate the life and acknowledge the en-US death of your loved one.en-US Yes, death is a sad affair and the proen-US -en-US cess is natural and unavoidable, but that en-US doesnt mean that we should just go on en-US living our lives as if nothing happened. en-US For most people, signicant life events en-US are worth stopping our routines for a en-US short time and doing something special.en-US Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, en-US promotions, graduations and the like all en-US carry with them a sense of the need to en-US recognize what has happened or what en-US has been accomplished by having some en-US type of ceremony to mark the event.en-USBy Jim Rosicaen-US FloridaPolitics.comen-USTen-USarget and Walmart are heading to en-US court to get en-US an adminisen-US-en-US trative law judge to en-US give them what Gov. en-US Rick Scott wouldnt: en-US The ability to sell en-US whiskey and Wheaten-US-en-US ies in the same en-US store. en-US The big-box reen-US-en-US tailers late Monday en-US led an adminisen-US -en-US trative challenge en-US against the states en-US Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Toen-US -en-US bacco.en-US At issue: The states obscure, 24-year-en-US old Restaurant Rule, which restricts eaten-US en-USeries and other businesses that have conen-US -en-US sumption on premises liquor licenses from en-US selling anything other than items customen-US-en-US arily sold in a restaurant. The plaintiffs en-US say the rule is not supported by logic or en-US necessary facts.en-US For over eight decades, Florida law en-US enacted after Prohibition has required en-US retailers to sell hard liquor in a separate en-US store, though beer and wine can be sold in en-US grocery aisles.en-US The current end game is that retailers en-US selling ready-to-eat food, such as Costen-US-en-US co, would be able to use consumption on en-US premises licenses normally granted to resen-US-en-US taurants to avoid the prohibition on selling en-US booze in the same space as other goods.en-US (Costco isnt involved in the current en-US case but has also been ghting the battle. en-US One of its Florida stores was denied a conen-US -en-US sumption on premises license earlier this en-US year.)en-US Bills have been led since 2014 to reen-US-en-US move the wall of separation between hard en-US liquor and other items. Last year, legislaen-US -en-US tion barely passed both chambers only to en-US get vetoed by Scott, who said itd be a job en-US killer for small businesses, many of whom en-US would likely be overwhelmed by big-box en-US stores superior selling power.en-US Attorneys for the GrayRobinson law en-US rm, which has represented Costco in en-US Florida, led the petition challenging the en-US Restaurant Rule on behalf of Target and en-US Walmart, each of which operate(s) nuen-US -en-US merous locations in the state of Florida en-US that are licensed as restaurants.en-US In effect, the Rule forecloses (them) en-US from obtaining a consumption on premises en-US license, the petition says. en-US4 CLAY TODAY en-US September 27, 2018en-US CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM en-USen-USThe views and opinions expressed on this page are those of the authors and do not necessarily reect the opinion of the en-US Clay Today. en-USen-USWed like to hear from you.

September 27, 2018 CLAY TODAY 5 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM with Eric Gilmour Saturday, November 10, 2018 9am 6pm ABTs rule denes items customarily sold in a restaurant as only ready to eat appe tizer items, ready to eat salad items, ready to eat entre items, ready to eat vegetable items, ready to eat fruit items (and) hot or cold beverages. State law, however, is si lent. In any case, the state has granted hun dreds, if not thousands, of applications for consumption on premises licenses for enti ties that sell items beyond those identied in the Rule, the petition says. Applications that have been approved include ones for golf country clubs, hotels, casinos, movie theatres, retail stores, sports complexes, bowling alleys, and se nior living complexes, among others, all of which, in addition to ready to eat foods and beverages and lottery tickets, sell merchandise like golf clubs, clothing, toi letries, jewelry, fashion accessories, movie tickets, cosmetic products and other items similar to those sold by petitioners. Also joining the challenge is the TopGolf golf entertainment chain, which has ve locations in Florida. State regulators have also recently in formed TopGolf that its Florida locations, which are licensed for consumption on premises, are prohibited from selling items other than those identied in the Rule, de spite the fact that TopGolf has been sell ing such items since opening each loca tion in Florida, the petition says. ABT was fully aware of such sales at the time it issued the licenses to TopGolf. Yet, the Division has now decided to se lectively enforce the Rule against TopGolf and other similar restaurant retailers. The case has not yet been assigned to a judge at the Division of Administrative Hearings. An attorney representing Publix, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, and the Florida Inde pendent Spirits Association, all of which oppose tearing down the wall, warned regulators at a rule-making workshop earlier this year. The purpose of rule-making is to in terpret statutes, not to get around laws that a party does not like, said William Hall of the Jones Walker rm. The (state) should reject this attempt to use rulemaking to usurp the legislative process. n Jim Rosica covers state government from Tallahassee for Florida Politics.

Using the screen name Mr. Fireball, Christopher Shawn Potter, 49, of Jack sonville, believed he was messaging a 14-year-old girl in Putnam County, the fed eral afdavit said. According to investigators, Potter sent a 14-second video depicting a sexual act between a minor and an older man to un dercover ofcers Feb. 10 via Kik, an in stant video messaging platform. Potter also discussed sex and sent a minute-long video where he pleasured himself to the undercover ofcer. The report said Potter stated he saved the video and sent it.

Former Clay teacher facing child porn charges There is something innately human about ceremony and marking the life and death of someone we love should be no dif ferent. Funerals, memorial services, wakes, even gatherings at a restaurant, a religious location or other special place, carry with them the corporate sense that remember ing this particular life is worth temporarily rearranging our hectic schedules. So, when cremation is your choice, consider these things and be sure you are choosing rightly for your loved one (or even for yourself in the future). If you can answer yes to two ques tions, youve most likely made a good choice: Did I do the right thing? and, Did I do what they wouldve wanted? Not only will a well-thought decision help with the long process of healing your head will rest easier on the pil low tonight. n Craig R.

The 17,000-square-foot surgery center will include large operating suites on Bap tists Fleming Island campus. According to a Baptist Health release, the center will cost $11.7 million. The surgery center is an expansion of Baptist Healths presence in Clay Coun ty. Baptist Clay Medical Campus, which opened in 2013, cost an estimated $39 million. Darin Roark, Baptist Health vice presi dent of ambulatory campuses and system emergency services, said Baptist Health had its eye on opening the rst week of De cember. Construction began in March. Well probably add at least 30 health care jobs in Clay County, Roark said. Thats 30 fewer people who have to work outside of the county. Baptist Health has previously applied to build a hospital in Clay County but has been prohibited by the states certicate of need law, which prevents adding hospi tal beds depending on the population. The state shot down a proposed $80 million 100-bed hospital in 2015. The Baptist Clay Medical Campus cur rently has emergency care, an imaging center, a laboratory and specialty services. It also houses other medical partners, in cluding Wolfson Childrens Hospital pedia tricians. Roark said increasing Baptists outpa tient services was the next logical step. Roark said the surgery center would ac commodate the outpatient needs of Clay County residents. Our next step, while we wait to add hospital beds to the campus, is to add out patient surgery to meet the demands of Clay County residents who wish to be able to remain in Clay County when they have surgery, Roark said. The center will contain two 600-squarefoot surgical rooms and a procedural room for minor surgeries such as endoscopies and colonoscopies. It will also have nine patient rooms and an advanced sterilization center for pa tient well-being. $11.7 million surgery center set for December opening PROVIDED BY BAPTIST HEALTH When completed, the Baptist Health Surgery Center on Fleming Island will look like this rendering.

Price said the BCC is expecting $83.54 million to come in from the 2018-19 mill age rate of 8.101. While this is an increase of roughly $5.6 million that will be used to fund increases in public safety and health care among other things, 8.101 is still not enough to com pletely cover police and re and rescue. Price said the bare bone cost of police and re and rescue is $83.7 million, but when you toss in other costs, the taxpayer might not think about, such as the cost to ensure buildings are built to code, the number rises to over $100 mil lion. Even with increased property values that will bring in more money, its still not enough to cover the cost, Price said. Commissioner Mike Cella touched on this aspect before voting to approve the millage rate, and explained that the BCC will have to take money from other places to pay for public safety services. The bottom line is that even though the ad valorem property tax will increase...it is still not enough to pay for both the sheriffs department and re and rescue so those essential services in our community...are still not covered by our property taxes, Cella said. We have to take money from other areas to pay for this service. Cella said that even with an increase in the property tax as a result of the in creased property values and not because of the millage rate the BCC has worked hard to keep costs lower in other areas such as doing a lot more with a lot less staff. The rest of the BCC echoed Cellas thoughts before voting to approve the mill age rate. To put the numbers into context, last year, the certied taxable value of homeowner property in Clay County was $9,929,585,600 and the millage rate was 8.101. This year, the certied taxable val ue is $10,642,384,756. Despite the mill age rate remaining the same at 8.101, that 7.18 percent increase in taxable value will bring in more money for the county. For a homeowners property valued at $150,000, the property tax for scal year 2018-19 will be $1,212.15. This number continues to rise by roughly $400 for each $50,000 increase in property value. For example, a property valued at $200,000 will see a tax of $1,620 and a $250,000 property will see a tax of $2,025 and so on. This will come out as a tax increase at the end of the day, said Commissioner Wayne Bolla. The millage rate that we paid last year will be the same that we pay this year and the increase will come from the increase in your property values that happen because Clay County is a better place to live in.

After graduating from Ridgeview High School in 2005, Tucker, now 31, rst began her collegiate journey at St. Johns River State College in 2008. While working fulltime as a cosmetologist and only taking classes she could afford, Tucker took ve years to complete her A.A. degree. How ever, she didnt let the slow pace of her academic journey stop her from continuing to put one foot in front of the other. Once she was awarded the federal Pell Grant, Tucker became a full-time student at SJR State in 2010. Although she contin ued working full-time as a cosmetologist, it wasnt her dream job. In 2017, Tucker decided to set her sights set on a career in human resources and enrolled in SJR States Bachelor of Applied Science in Organizational Man agement program.

JACKSONVILLE Validated drink ing water test results for 19 off-station wells sampled indicate all are below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Lifetime Health Advisory of 70 parts per trillion for perand poly-uoroalkyl substances, or PFAS. All property own ers have been notied of the validated results. No more testing is planned. The Navy voluntarily tested 19 pri vate drinking water wells within iden tied areas around Naval Air Station Jacksonville in August to ensure water supplies are not impacted by past Navy use of chemicals aboard the air station. This is part of Navys ongoing testing of drinking water currently taking place at and near U.S. Navy installations. PFAS are man-made chemicals per sistent in the environment that are not absorbed well in soil and could migrate to groundwater. PFAS have been used to make products that resist heat, stains, grease and water, including nonstick pans; water resistant textiles and water resistant sprays. In May 2016, the EPA issued LHA levels for peruorooctane sulfonate and peruorooctanoic acid, at 70 PPT, indi vidually and combined if both are pres ent. The EPA established these LHA lev els to offer a margin of protection from potential adverse health effects from ex posure to PFOA and PFOS in water. The most common historical Navy use of these chemicals is reghting foam. AFFF is the most effective way to put out petroleum-based res, such as an air craft accident. In June 2016, the Navy issued a poli cy to identify areas of potential environ mental release of the materials. As part of this policy, the Navy tested for PFOS and PFOA in and around NASJax. On station, drinking water is pro duced by NAS Jacksonvilles Public Works Utilities Division and is supplemented by JEA. Both systems have previously tested for PFAS, which were below the detection level.

Projects in the ve-year capital im provement plan call for about $500,000 for both the Clay Street storm basin and improvements to Magnolia Avenue. As sistant City Manager Mike Null said the estimated $850,000 for West Street and $750,000 for Julia Street were important repairs, though he expected 75 percent of those projects to be funded by grants. Theres still millions and mil lions of dollars in stormwater proj ects that need to be completed within the foreseeable future, Null said. Robert Walpole of CHW Professional Con sultants, told council members an Equiv alent Stormwater Unit was set at 2,400 square feet. He said the rate should be set by dividing the amount of impervious area in the tax parcel by the 2,400 square feet. Levying a fee on every city parcel ap pears like an enormous sum of money, but Walpole said he expects about half of all parcels to qualify for mitigation credit by having modern stormwater infrastruc ture. New development and redevelop ment can also qualify for the credit. Agricultural and vacant land would be considered exempt and residential units would only be classied as one ESU. Wal pole said Magnolia Park would be exempt from the fee, but there was a caveat. ...Provided they dont discharge into any city systems, they still maintain their own systems and stay in good standing with the [St. Johns River Water Manage ment District] permits, then they could be exempt from this, Walpole said. To determine the numbers of ESUs per parcel, council members directed staff to contract out the mapping of each parcel. Walpole said the process is tedious, but only has to be done once. Everything is based on impervious area. The Clay County Property Appraiser does not maintain impervious area for commercial, school, government or prop erty, Walpole said. So, we have to look at how were going to collect all of this data. Walpole estimated the city collecting fees from about 4,500 parcels and rec ommended the city set the fee at $167 per ESU to reach the $750,000 per year needed for stormwater projects. Outgoing City Manager Danielle Judd said the city ought to know the total im pervious area rst before setting the fee amount. We need to know that from going through all the analysis that needs to be done, she said. Council Member Mitch Timberlake said the city needed to send a notice to every homeowner and businesses about credits. I really prefer us getting in front of it and letting people know what our meth odology is going to be and making sure we got the numbers right, Timberlake said.

The tan hipped-roof building at 1734 Kingsley Ave. has been renovated by its new owners Jacksonville-based Bold City who is renting ofces. He has already es tablished a co-working space on the sec ond oor of the building, which also has a 600-square-foot conference room on the rst oor. Bold City Commercial managing part ner Tim Horvath said the company put about $87,000 into renovations in addi tion to its $550,000 sale price, according to the Clay County Property Appraiser. Original blueprints of the building, built in 1987, are encased on the rst oor walls with a plaque commemorating the build ings donors. We kept the traditional brown, and the placard from when the building was do nated, Horvath said. Wed paid homage to that. The upstairs is more modern, which Horvath said will operate as a shared coop space with utilities and furnishings for businesses that dont need a full-time of ce. For the upstairs, we completely reno vated the entire thing, Horvath said. We at Bold City are hoping to attract small and growing businesses from within the com munity. Clay Chamber of Commerce President Tresa Calfee said she was pleased the new ownership was able to put a different spin on the building while maintaining some of the older features. Back in the 1980s, a lot of the cham ber buildings in Florida were similar to that one, Calfee said. There was a lot of heart and soul put into that building. A lot of people in the community gave to make it happen. The chamber moved to Fleming Island in December 2017. Calfee cited the need for the chamber to be centrally-located in the county and closer to Green Cove Springs, Penney Farms and Keystone Heights. The [chamber] board of directors thought moving to Fleming Island was an excellent choice and we are thrilled to be here, Calfee said. [The old building] served a purpose for the last 30 years, but its changed now with the First Coast Expressway coming through and our busi nesses migrating. Fifteen years ago, Flem ing Island was not what it is today. The property had also been the former home of the Clay County Development Authority, which was an equal partner in the buildings ownership. For years, it was home to economic development deals that helped shape the future of the Clay County workforce. But, the property on Kingsley Avenue has a legacy that came with the larger tracts past. Its often referred to as The Monkey Farm.

Earlier this year in May, Superinten dent Addison Davis opened up applica tions for students who wished to be on this council whose purpose was to give Davis and the school district a new perspective on Clay Countys education system. After combing through over 65 applications, and interviewing another 35 in person, the council has met for the rst time on Sept. Inaugural student advisory council empaneled 24. Before jumping into an icebreaker for the students, Davis explained to the stu dents what he hopes comes of this inaugu ral council. The real responsibility of this is really for us [administration] to have a greater access to communication and interaction with students, Davis said. Let me be hon est: Im leveraging your knowledge, your skillset and your ears to become the best school district in the State of Florida. If the rst meeting is any indication, the Student Advisory Council will serve to provide a perspective that Davis, the ad ministration and the school board dont usually to get to hear from students. This perspective, or lack thereof, is something Davis identied, and as a result, created the council to ll that gap. Its very easy for me as Superinten dent to sit on the sidelines and I can work with adults and I can work with parents and I can work with school-based leaders, teachers, district-based leaders to truly gure out whats working, whats not and what we can do differently but whats more important is being actively engaged with PHOTOS BY WESLEY LEBLANC Superintendent Addison Davis, left, discusses issues facing the school district with Keystone Heights Jr.-Sr. High student Sloan Lybarger, one of 16 members of the new Student Advisory Council.

After a quick icebreaker, students ex plained to Davis what they hope to see come of this council, and for the most part, their vision aligned perfectly with his. Both parties want to see the Clay County School District become the best it can be. We are the voice of students in Clay County and I think we have to come to gether to represent those who might not be heard, said Michaela LaSauce, a 10th grader at Middleburg High. We have to work together to make the district better for them and for everyone. We can make the school district the best its ever been. More specically, the council wants to tackle issues such as bullying, casespecic discipline, miscommunication. According to Davis, the council has a real opportunity to affect change across the county, both from an in-school viewpoint and a school board policy stance. Its mem bers come from different backgrounds and range from seventh through 12th grades. Once we get to a point where we start to prioritize what this council really wants to be their major areas of focus, what well do is start unpeeling that onion and g ure out if its change we can grasp at the school-level or if it needs to go through the school board, Davis said. My aspiration, as we get this cohort moving in the direction to better the expe rience for all of the kids, is that we get to a point where well have quarterly updates for the school board. If it gets to the point where we have to push and change the way we think with district policy, or initiatives, or our ways of work, then I will immediate ly engage all leaders and the school board to talk about how we can involve the prac tice with the lens of this council to really make a change and act in the best interest of our learners, Davis said. At the next meeting, willing seniors and juniors of the council will have to present their case for why they should serve as the council chair and vice-chair respectively. These two students will be the ones re sponsible for talking directly with school district leaders and school board members. Students were forced out of their com fort zones and held open discussions on such topics as teacher-student relation ships, school culture-climate, communica tion-messaging, district policy and student engagement and motivation. They moved around the room and covered six different posters with sticky notes lled with ideas and issues that will be discussed further as a means of nding solutions. I see a lack of motivation in other stu dents and I think that together we can come up with ways to annihilate that, said Kaley Colter, an eighth grader at Lake Asbury Ju nior High. Different people need different kinds of engagement and motivation. According to Davis, this rst meeting served as a way to discover what areas of interest in Clay County education the coun cil could tackle on an individual basis. By the end of the hour-long meeting, one thing was clear: despite their youth, these students were wise in their thinking. Not only do they want to help Clay County rise to the top, but there was a feeling of duty in the room. It seemed as if each stu dent had taken up a call of duty to service not only themselves, but the thousands of students they represent. According to Davis, these students might be the nal push the Clay County School District needs to overcome St. Johns as the No. 1 school district in Flori da. Until the October meeting, the council will continue the meetings discussion in a shared Google doc where theyll not only share ideas and concepts with each other and Davis, but plan for their next meeting agenda. Michaela LaSauce of Middleburg High takes part in a brainstorming session Sept. 24. Habitat from page 1 EverBank were the helping hands be hind the home. A representative from TIAA Bank attended the dedication alongside two Jacksonville Roar cheer leaders and Jaxson de Ville, the famed Jaguars mascot. Davy and her daughter hugged the eccentric mascot after he handed her two tickets to an upcoming Jaguars game. This dedication was not only a his toric moment for the Davy family, but, like every home dedication, a big day for Clay County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Carolyn Edwards as well. The Davy house marks milestones for the organization and the city. We are just absolutely delighted to celebrate this day, Edwards said. Its another home built in this great city and the 105th of 165. Weve already got another ve or six homes coming into [Green Cove Springs] too. Were always looking for the next homebuyer and this city is a perfect t for our mission. While these homes might seem like acts of charity, theyre actually houses the homeowner must purchase like any other homebuyer. They pay a mortgage payment each month and if they de fault, they lose the house. Edwards said their clients are given months of nan cial preparation for this shift from, in Davys case, renting to owning. Each client must have a credit score in the low 600s at least, which Habitat for Humanity helps make happen. Families must bring in at least $2,200 a month and if they have bankruptcy on their record, it must have been discharged within the past three years. Program rules also prevent clients from having a felony conviction on their record within the past seven years and they must put in at least 300 hours of volunteer work into the orga nization. Often, this volunteer work is completed on the house that the volunteer will one day own. Davy was not alone in volunteer ing, though. Her daughter and many other Habitat for Humanity volunteers lent a helping hand as well. One volunteer didnt even know Mrs. Davys rst name be cause he, and everyone else, always called her mom because she always had children around she also treated everyone in volved like her own. Bass said she used tools she had never touched before and completed tasks she never thought she would at this age, such as installing windows. Despite the hard work building a home takes, she wouldnt trade in a second of it for free time. I learned so much from all of this and a lot of it was actually very interesting, Bass said. I wouldnt trade this for any thing. Its a dream come true for me, for my mom, for us.

The proceeds of the coffee go to the Clay Police Athletic League. Keith Smith is the Clay County Sher iffs Ofce public information ofcer and executive director of the Clay Police Ath letic League program that provides kids football, cheer, baseball and basketball for kids. He said the program was al ways looking for new ideas and initia tives and the coffee will add to its coffers. The root of all that is funding and mon ey, Smith said. By doing this, not only do we have Sheriff Daniels full support, but were looking for avenues to get nancial backing that we can do more programs and scholarships for the kids and spread the wealth. Sheriff Darryl Daniels said community engagement gives residents the opportu nity to meet deputies and discuss issues. He said people are less apt to feel unsafe when they have positive interactions with law enforcement. Thats why the depart ment unveiled the coffee at one of its popu lar Coffee With a Cop events, this one at Urban Bean. When I became the sheriff, I wanted to make sure we did all we could to engage the community, Daniels said. He said Clay PAL was a worthwhile cause and it was more than recreation for the kids. It helps our children in Clay County stay out of trouble, gives them some life skills that transfer into adulthood and keeps them out of the hands of law en forcement in a negative way, Daniels said. Daniels approached Urban Bean Cof fee owners Duwayne and Pam Hegel about creating the blend earlier this year.

French river Medicine from page 1 clean procedure policy that addresses [medical marijuana] in a conventional and careful manner. We have to permit the use of medical marijuana, however, we will not maintain, we will not store and we will not administer medical marijuana at any point in time. Instead, school medical staff will en sure that schools identify a safe location for the user to be administered the me dicinal marijuana. The administrator must be validated by the state-given registered card. DAgata jumped into the conversa tion to clear up some school board questions regarding students and medi cal marijuana and said students will not be able to selfadminister at any point. The policy is for students who require administration from others, DAgata said. In other workshop business, School Board Member Betsy Condon asked that Davis and staff examine student transpor tation to extracurricular activities, or lack thereof. According to Condon, a few years ago, the school board enacted a policy that prevented students from transporting themselves from school-sanctioned activi ties, and instead, required students to use district transportation, such as buses. Where we are today is, if they cant get a bus for whatever reason, the stu dents are, told get yourself to the game, Condon said. I have watched ve teenag ers pile into an SUV with a 16-year-old driver...I just everyday pray that theres not a tragedy in this county that causes us to change our policy. Davis, who like Condon admitted that this problem has been around for a num ber of years, said that last year, his staff directed school administration to utilize third-party vendors sanctioned by the school district to transport students if needed. According to Davis however, these administrators arent using these other vendors because of the cost. Coaches and athletic directors have to do a better job making certain, and we can make certain they do it, that they take one of the options we gave them, Davis said. Davis told Condon that he and district staff would speak once again with athletic directors across the county to ensure that not only are they aware of this solution, but they are actively using it in situations where district transportation is unavail able for every student. The school boards monthly meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Teacher Training Center at Fleming Island High. Betsy Condon By Joshua Torres For Clay Today JACKSONVILLE Do you ever wonder what the ofce would be like if Jim and the Dunder Mifin crew worked in a restau rant? Well if you have, then thats the es sential premise of the new YouTube series Lemoncurd. The web series follows Virginia Lemon curd, played by Jacksonville actress Laura Mauldin, as she begins her journey to cre ate her own home cooking show with the help of producer Abe, their camera crew who does not stop lming no matter what and her less-than-interested in anything she does husband, Duke. The series is being produced by Drew Brown, a Middleburg High School gradu ate, who heard about the series from a friend, Abigail Saenz. But this wasnt always the plan for Brown. He said that at one point he was going to St. Johns River State College with the idea of becoming an art teacher. I had an epiphany one day that I really wanted to do lm, said Brown. He went on to the now-closed Art In stitute of Jacksonville, and 2 years ago Saenz, showed him a rough draft of the script and he decided that he needed to be a part of the show. Mauldin came up with the idea of the show from a character she created on the video-messaging app, Snapchat. I dont think Snapchat even had the Stories feature yet so I saved all the vid eos on my phone and strung them together Middleburg lmmaker tackling web series using some app I had at the time, said Mauldin. The character was completely different but the idea of a bored, restless housewife character trying to get her hus bands attention with food was there. While the show is being shot in a home in Jacksonvilles San Marco community, Brown said its very much inspired by the easygoing, southern mentality atmosphere of Middleburg and the residents who live there. The show has just released its third ep isode and is running a GoFundMe to help produce the rest of the rst season. Their goal is to raise $10,000, which will allow PHOTO BY ZANE HALL Actors Laura Mauldin and Josh Waller star in the new web-based comedy Lemoncurd, which cinematopher Drew Brown, a Middleburg High grad, said is growing in popularity with each episode.

Lemon from page 16 producers to comfortably budget the sub sequent episodes, including funding lm equipment, wardrobe, props and paying the artists who devote their time and dedi cation to the show. So far, the reception has been very positive, and the show has been gaining a following. Its been absolutely incredible seeing how much people like it, said Mauldin. Lemoncurd did a lm festival premiere at the LOL Jax Film Festival, a short lm festival held in Jacksonville, where they met fans for the rst time. I arrived at the festival on day 2 and got swarmed by people who wanted to talk to us about the project, tell us how much they liked it, and wish us well, said Mauldin. It was after this that they realized that the show might have something extra to it. More and more creative projects are PHOTOS BY ZANE HALL From left are actresses Laura Mauldin and Brooks Anne Meierdierks, who co-star in the web series Lemoncurd. Mauldin portrays Virginia Lemoncurd in the mockumentary. being shown online rather than being pitched to a TV studio. Artists are choosing to fund their project themselves, maybe with help from fans, and put it out through their own channels. Its a really effective way to have peo ple see your work and to see your content on what youre working on, said Brown. You can see companies going more to wards the online platform as their effective way of having their content seen. Roosterteeth, an online production company based in Austin, Texas, was started in the bedroom of one of its found ers, Michael Burnie Burns in 2003. The company now has 8 locations and employs over 300 people. Online streaming companies, such as Netix, are distributing exclusive shows such as the hit show Stranger Things on its platform. Whether the eventual route that Mauld in and Brown take the show is not known just yet, they hope to take it wherever they can. Weve gone to great lengths to try and make this into something special and it would be a great reward to have the op portunity to let it grow, said Mauldin.

You will face pressure and many peo ple do not know how to handle it. The stress of life weighs upon us. It may be from difculties in nances, relation ships, job issues, sickness, death the list goes on! There are many ways that people try to deal with it. Too many turn to a false crutch such as alcohol or drugs that does not help. Then there are those who succumb to an ger and lash out toward others. Some sink into depression. The Word of God has a solution for deal ing with pressure as it does for all the is sues of life. We are encouraged to cast all our care upon Him because He cares for us. If you can bow at the cross with the pressure of life upon you, then rise and leave all your cares there, you will have victory over all the burdens that press you down. And you can do that knowing that the Lord wants to lift your burdens that press upon you. He may not totally remove them, but he wants to lift them with you. He is your burden bearer or the One who bears every burden with you. Jesus said, Come unto me all you who are heavily burdened and I will give you rest. (Matt. 11:28) His words are a prom ise to every person who has succumbed to the pressures of life and bowed in surren der under the load. He will lift your burden. He will come to your rescue. He will give you rest from the pressures of life. You can trust Him because He is in the arena of your daily life with you. He knows everything that plagues you and He is with you. He is the Helper that you need. Come every soul by sin oppressed, theres mercy with the Lord And He will surely give you rest by trusting in His word. n www.rstagop.org Write Pastor at Pas torBill@rstagop.org Community Briefs Interested in art?

As I reect on the lessons learned from my familys experience, and the calls I received at the Extension Ofce, I wanted to share how to prepare our horses for the next hurricane. Florida is ranked 5th nationally for horse ownership with over 121,000 horses and ponies. In Clay County, there is a large population of horses who are mainly used for showing and recreation. Because of this, I typically receive frantic calls from horse owners asking how to prepare before a big storm is headed to our area. When preparing your horses for a hur ricane there are two options for you to con sider: sheltering in place and/or relocating your horses. Regardless of the option you select, getting your contact information on each of the horses is critical. There are several ways to do this. UF/IFAS FILE PHOTO Neck ID collars are great for writing contact information using permanent marker. SEE HORSE, 22 By Thomas Webber Y es, the rumors are true: I am a transplanted Yankee. Eeek! Alas, it is true, having spent the rst 25 years of my life north of the MasonDixon line. I have shoveled snow on Hal loween, dodged icicles falling from the gutters, and sat in a running car for 10 minutes waiting for it to warm up. Good times. With the sea sonal changes be ing much more abrupt up north, calendars werent really necessary you simply had to pay attention to your surroundings. Take Autumn, for example. There would be a crispness in the air, the leaves would change color, rakes would replace lawn mowers and rewood would be brought in. Contrast this to Autumn in Florida. The temperature is still in the 80s and 90s, palm trees dont change color nor drop their leaves, many people dont even own rakes, and replaces are sim ply places to hold the TV. But whether you call the North or the South home, there are two things we can agree upon this time of year: Football season is underway and the days seem to be getting shorter. The former is a cherished way of life, the result of decades of sis, boom and bah. The latter is based on physics and closely related to why we even have sea sons at all. Lets take a look. The beginning of Autumn is not tied to the gridiron, the start of school, or even the Labor Day weekend. In fact, this year the rst day of Autumn was Sept. 22, at 9:54 p.m. to be exact. This date and time has nothing to do with holidays or scal calendars. As Earth revolves around the Sun over the course of a year, it carves out a plane. From our terrestrial point-of-view, however, this plane would seem to be de ned by the motion of the Sun around the Earth, creating a great circle on the Ce lestial Sphere called the ecliptic. One of the challenges in studying sci ence at any level is being able to consider models from a different or even larger (or smaller) perspective. The equator of Earth does not stay parallel with the plane of the ecliptic; that is, Earth is actually tilted off its or bital plane by about 23.5 degrees. It is this tilt that gives our planet its seasons. There are two dates when this tilt is the most extreme. The rst is the Sum mer Solstice, around June 21. Here, our Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun, we receive more direct sunlight, and the arced path of the Sun is highest in the sky. Summer has ofcially begun. On Dec. 21 the Winter Solstice our Northern Hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun, we receive less direct sun light, and the path of the Sun is found low in the sky. It is the rst day of Winter, The Autumnal Equinox Thomas Webber SEE AUTUMN, 22

You can also use livestock tags, neck collars, or heavy-duty plastic identication tags that can placed around the horses neck or be braided into the horses mane or tail. Another option is to halter your horses and attach an identi cation tag to the halter. I have found that metal identication tags, much like you would use for your dog and cat, work re ally well. To my knowledge, there are no public or government facilities in Northeast Florida that will shelter horses during a storm. The reason is there are very few reinforced structures or barns that have been built to withstand hurricane force winds in the area. Individuals who contact me seeking horse shelters often have older or unstable barns that they do not feel comfortable leaving their horses in during a hurricane. If you nd yourself in this situation, and youre unable to transport your hors es elsewhere, you should consider turn ing your horses out to pasture during the storm. Livestock, in general, are resilient and will make it through a storm, but we can do a few things to help protect them. First, take inventory of your premises and identify any objects that could become ying projectiles because of the wind speed. Secure movable objects so your horses are not dodging them during the storm. Make sure to provide water and a covered area for hay and/or feed so the horse doesnt go searching for it elsewhere. If you plan to relocate your horses within Florida, there are a few pieces of information and supplies you will need to bring with you. These include copies of your animals vaccination and medical re cords and proof of ownership. Also, be sure to pack plenty of extra feed and water for transport. Trafc is likely to be an issue when evacuating. Individuals leaving Florida with their horses, in most cases, will be required to have a current health certicate to cross state lines. Additionally, all horses are required to have a negative Coggins test, within the last 12 months, for interstate transport. These documents will need to be presented when you stop at agricultur al inspection stations. One of the biggest lessons learned from Irma was to be pre pared well in advance of the storm. We also learned that evacuation is the best option if you live in a ood plain. The best place for local information regarding evacuation zones and hurricane preparedness info is ALERT.claycountygov.com. I hope you consider the abovementioned advice the next time a storm is headed to our area. If you would like to learn more about preparing your horses for a hurri cane, contact Stephanie Conner at the Clay County Extension Ofce at (904) 284-6355 or sconner04@u.edu.

There are two other dates of interest between the Summer and Winter Solstices linked to Earths tilt with respect to the Sun. They represent the midpoint of the Suns apparent altitude between its maxi mum arc on June 21 and its minimum arc on Dec. 21. These two dates are called equinoxes, literally equal night. The Sun is direct ly over the equator at noon and we have equal hours of day and night. When the Sun is heading northward over the equator, it is the Vernal Equinox, or the rst day of Spring, approximately March 21. When the Suns trek is south ward, it is the Autumnal Equinox, which tends to fall around yep, you guessed it Sept. 21. So even though there has been over a month of football and the days seem to have been getting shorter ever since the end of June, the ofcial start of Fall wasnt until Sept. 22 this year. Judging from the Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas decorations that have been littering stores since August, this could have been an easy fact to overlook.

24 CLAY TODAY September 27, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Mike Zima Correspondent FLEMING ISLAND Fleming Island Highs six foot, six inch tight end Sam Snyder bat ted down a potential game-winning Hail Mary throw by Ridgeview quarterback Ty ler Huff on the games nal play, allowing Fleming Island to escape with a 42-37 nondistrict win over the visiting Panthers on Sept. 21. He [Snyder] did it exactly how its designed. He high-pointed the ball and deected it away, explained a relieved Fleming Island coach Damenyum Springs after the game. For the second week in a row, the Golden Eagles let a big lead slip away. On September 14, the Golden Eagles led Gainesville Buchholz 35-14 before losing in overtime. This week, they teetered on the edge of another monumental collapse before Snyder, a 6-foot, 5-inch tight end, saved the day. When the score got closer, it kind of felt like that [Buchholz game] again, said Springs. Aaron Ozzie Ramirez and Dean Hy ams staked the Golden Eagles to their big lead, assisted by an opportunistic defense. Ramirez, a receiver who moved to running back after starter Dewayne McBride suf fered a broken wrist, ran for 122 yards and two rst half touchdowns. The senior also gained 35 yards on a reception from Hyams to set up a touchdown throw from Hyams to Max Michaels that gave Fleming Island a 21-14 halftime lead. Ozzie is an athlete, said Springs. It all comes naturally for him. And Dean has had two great games back-to-back. Hyams completed 12 of 17 passes for 227 yards and two scores. His second scoring toss was one for the ages, and was the turning point of the game. After a muff and a holding penalty on the second half kickoff forced the Golden Eagles to begin the possession at their own three yard line, Hyams faked a hand-off and lofted a spiral up the right sideline. Eugene Oglesby, a defensive back brought over to the offense only because of the injury to McBride, snared the ball in stride near mideld and raced the remaining distance for a 97 yard touchdown that swung the momentum to the home side and gave the Golden Eagles a 27-14 lead. The jolt energized the Fleming Island defense. On Ridgeviews ensuing posses sion, Huff and running back Jaiden Turner botched an exchange. Golden Eagles line backer Declan Bertolini pounced on the loose ball at the Ridgeview 22 yard line. Two plays later, Tim Thomas blasted up the middle, sidestepped a linebacker and tugged a Panthers safety across the goal line for a 14-yard score. On the next series, linebacker Andrew Thomas and safety Jared Ashe crashed into Huff from opposite sides as he scrambled away from pressure, forcing another fum ble that was recovered by the hosts Zach Payne at the Panthers 25 yard line. After a pass interference penalty brought the ball halfway to the goal line, Tim Thomas cov ered the remaining 12 yards in two plays to give Fleming a seemingly insurmount able 42-14 advantage. You cannot give a good team the ball Raider defense; 3 INTs By Ray DiMonda Correspondent MIDDLEBURG As the Orange Park Raid ers were coming off a monumental win over the Clay Blue Devils last week and riding a three game winning streak, they headed into Middleburg to take on the Broncos who were coming off their rst victory of the season with a 37-7 trounc ing of the Englewood Rams to have them sitting atop of 6A district 4 standings with a 1-4 record, for what should have been a Friday night home showdown. After holding the Raiders to a 13-7 halftime decit, the Broncos succumbed to lose 39-7 by the nal whistle. The rst half of tonights game lets ev erybody know we have to work hard, prac tice hard, play hard, otherwise we dont get good results, said Orange Park coach September 28 1A-Hawthorne (4-0) at 4A-Keystone Heights (2-2) HHS 33, KHHS 20) Hawthorne is fast and furious with scores of 69-0, 60-0, 51-19 and 60-0 and near 900 pass ing yards in four games and two receivers with 6TDs each; one a 5-5 speedster. Can the Indi ans defense slow down the oense? Keystone Heights coach Chuck Dickinson knows how to run the ball to keep the oense on the eld. If Channell and Friedlin hold the ball all night, this could be a very big upset. Oensive line play; Dodd, Baxter and Hughes need to play best game. Carter Semione will have big night. District 3-7A: Oakleaf (3-1, 1-0) at Fleming Island (3-1, 0-1) (OHS 26, FIHS 23) On paper, this is a close game. On the eld, depends on which Fleming Island defense shows up. Fleming Island had critical second half overtime loss to Buchholz two weeks ago and needs this one to stay in the playo hunt. Oakleaf won a track meet with Bartram Trail then went toe-to-toe with Clay last week and won the fourth quarter. Frank Garis has the Knights smelling a district title. Walter Simmons, QB, is real deal. District 5-5A: Ridgeview (3-2, 0-1) at Orange Park (4-1, 1-0) (RHS 28, OPHS 27) Raiders are rolling and Macpherson likes district titles. Knocking o Clay was huge. Losing to Palatka was huge for Ridgeview. Hu wants the title and has most of his weapons back. Raiders secondary is as athletic as any in town. District 4-6A: Middleburg (1-4, 1-0) at Ed White (2-3, 1-0) (White 23, MHS 12) Middleburg made mistakes against Orange Park, but played hard. White has Kevin Sullivan, a wily veteran, as coach and that makes for an interesting matchup of wits. White has played some pretty good teams and will be revved thinking Middleburg is a gimme. District 5-5A: Clay (1-4, 0-1) at Menendez (4-1, 0-1) (CHS 44, Menendez 16) Everyone thought Oakleaf would be a blowout win over Clay, but Blue Devils put a show of force against Knights. Menendez start ed out as everyones worst nightmare, then lost to Baker County to give Hoekstra a slim look at the playos. Hoekstra will take that slim look and make it work. Cedrick Brown was monster against Oakleaf until cramps pulled him. Fresh man LaQuarius Ray is legit hammer in second half. Clays little linebackers showed up against Oakleaf. Menendez RB Ty Edwards is a bigger Keshawn King. That could be a problem. Baker County slowed him down to 107 yards; Ponte Vedra held him to 67. The other guy, Kenny Logan, is almost as good, but smaller. Will be up to Rodney Keller to corral them. SJCDS (2-2, 1-1) at Halifax Academy (2-3, 0-0) (SJCDS 26, Halifax 13) Common opponent is Florida Deaf; 40-0 for Halifax, 47-6 for SJCDS. This is an even con test. Take Chipoletti as the edge. Max Monroe and Brady Walden are automatic. Mighty Max Arnold is legit beast on the edge. Halifax has a big pass game as well so secondary play critical. First round of district matchups: Clay beats Menendez after tough dinger from Oakleaf, Ridgeview exacts playo hopes on Raiders. Chipoletti has this Spartan thing gured out. Oakleaf run game punches Fleming Island out. Game of the Week: Ridgeview stays alive in seesaw battle with Raiders.

Orange Park wound up snagging three interceptions off Middleburg quarterback Joe Justino in the second half to fuel the win. Wideout/quarterback Terrance John son provided much of the reworks for the Raiders with a 39 yard run opening the scoring for Orange Park, but Middleburg responded with returnman Brody Senn catching a wacky kickoff and giving the Broncos rst down at the Raider 38 yard line.

He began the comeback with a 10 yard scoring toss to Brian Jackson, who made a diving catch in the end zone. That touchdown was fol lowed by scoring tosses of 34 yards to Spencer Calise on a rollout and 35 yards on a catch and run by Turner with 0:30 remaining. After Cole Pittman covered Matt Kozi oleks onside kick, the Golden Eagles elected to down the ball behind the line of scrimmage on three consecutive plays, despite the fact that Ridgeview had all three of their time outs. Facing a fourth and 30 from their own 25, Hyams took a shotgun snap and retreated into the end zone, stepping out of bounds for a safety when the Panthers defenders converged upon him. Since one second remained on the clock, the Golden Eagles were forced to kick off, and Ridgeviews Caleb Plyler executed a fair catch at the Panthers 41 yard line. Huff sat in the pocket until his receivers neared the Fleming goal line, and then lofted the prayer that Snyder would swat away to end the game. Huff nished 18 of 24 for 280 yards, with no interceptions. He is a warrior, Porch said of his se nior signalcaller. He is always going to ght. Plyler led the Panthers in rushing with 56 yards and scored their other touch down on a two yard run. Both teams are now 3-2 and face dif cult district games on Friday, September 28. The Panthers travel to District 5-5A foe Orange Park, while Fleming Island has hosts Oakleaf in District 3-7A. We have got to play almost a perfect game, control the line of scrimmage, and make plays when we can, said Springs about the matchup with the Knights. Eagles from page 24 Ridgeview High tailback Caleb Plyler added late score against Fleming Island.

September 27, 2018 CLAY TODAY 27 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Patton scores two goals in two games JACKSONVILLE Florida Gulf Coast Uni versity womens soccer coach Jim Blanken ship couldnt have asked his team for much more on the opening weekend of ASUN play in Jacksonville. After a 6-0 thumping of JU on Friday, the #25 Eagles (8-0-2, 2-0-0) came back with a dominating 4-0 win over North Florida (5-4-1, 0-1-1) on Sunday to remain one of 13 unbeatens remaining in the NCAA Division I ranks. FGCU has ties with Dayton University, 0-0 on September 9, and 1-1 against Loyola Chicago on Sep tember 16. It was a great weekend Blankenship said. We got points on the road and that is what we came up here to do. I am pleased with how the kids played, it was a good overall performance. We got a chance to play a lot of people and that is going to be a strength throughout the season with ev erybody contributing. The Eagles came out the aggressors Sunday, showing fresh legs after their blowout over Jacksonville and North Flor idas double overtime grinder against Stet son. FGCU put four quality shots together in the rst 15 minutes of the half, a pair of them nding their mark on left, with the others just missing. In the two games played in front of a Jacksonville hometown crowd, former Oakleaf High soccer standout Lindsey Pat ton, a junior at Florida Gulf Coast, landed a goal in each game with her goal against North Florida giving the Eagles a 3-0 lead. The two goals were Pattons rst of the season with ve shots on goal on 13 shots. Against Jacksonville, Patton scored the sixth goal of a 6-0 win off a header in the 78th minute of play. College Updates Against a packed in Osprey defense, it took until the 31st minute for the Green and Blue to break through when Marjo rie Boilesen (Sao Paulo, Brazil/Porto Se guro/West Florida) played a beautiful ball through the UNF defense and found Ev dokia Popadinova (Hadzhidimovo, Bulgar ia/Nikola Vaptsarov/Northwestern Ohio) on the other end for an easy chip shot goal, her ASUN leading eighth of the season to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead. FGCU threatened to make it a 2-0 game in the 38th minute when Lindsey Patton (Jacksonville, FL/Oakleaf HS) beat the keeper on a header off of a corner, but an Osprey slid to the back post just before the ball crossed the goal line to keep it a 1-0 contest. Shots were 12-1 in favor of the Eagles at the half while FGCU drew seven rst half corners to just one for UNF. Again, UNF played tight to begin the second half, but as time began to work against the Ospreys, the Eagles were able to stretch them out and nd space in the attacking third. In the 64th minute, Zoey Spitzer (Na ples, FL/Gulf Coast HS) lobbed a ball into the box and found Boilesen who beat the keeper with a header for her fth goal of the season to make it 2-0. Just 10 minutes later the Eagles add ed onto their lead as Camille Knudstrup (Lakeland, FL/George Jenkins HS) drove a head high pass into the box to Patton who scored her second goal in as many games in her hometown of Jacksonville to make it 3-0 FGCU. The onslaught from the Eagles con tinued into the 80th minute when Alyssa Abbondandolo (Cape Coral, FL/Oasis HS) took a shot from a sharp angle on the right of the box and zipped it past the keeper for her second of the year to extend the lead to 4-0. The FGCU defense and goalkeeper Me lissa Weck (Yorba Linda, CA/Esperanza HS) would do the rest from there to keep the clean sheet intact as the Green and Blue went on to win 4-0. The Eagles nished with 15 shots to just ve for the Ospreys. FGCU put eight of those shots on frame to a pair for UNF. Seven players registered points for the Eagles in the win including the four goal scorers. Knudstrup and Silvana Gordon (Medford, NJ/Shawnee HS) each recorded two assists for FGCU. Weck stopped both shots she saw on goal for her 25th career shutout. FGCU improves to 8-0-2 overall on the season and begins ASUN play where they left off 2017 on top at 2-0-0. UNF drops to 5-4-1 overall and 0-1-1 in ASUN action. After a nearly month long hiatus, the Eagles will return to the FGCU Soccer Complex next weekend to host North Ala bama Friday and Lipscomb Sunday. By Roy Allen, FGCU Athletics SJCDS Newton returns to Florida to face Lady Gators GAINESVILLE Sophomore forward Lind sey Eaton scored the rst goal of her LSU career on Setp. 23 at Donald R. Dizney Stadium, but it wasnt enough as the LSU soccer team (6-4-1, 0-2-1 SEC) fell to the Florida Gators (4-6-1, 2-1-0 SEC) by a score of 4-1. Former St. Johns Country Day School star Abbey Newton, an LSU freshman, made her 11th start of the season as a sideline defensive midelder. Newton has three goals and two assists for the Tigers with 17 shots; 10 on goal. Newton got her rst collegiate goal in just her second game; a 1-0 win over Lib erty on August 23. Her next two goals were in a 2-0 win over Stetson on September 6 and a 2-0 win over Samford University on STAFF PHOTO BY RANDY LEFKO Oakleaf High graduate Lindsey Patton, left, returned to Jacksonville area to lead Florida Gulf Coast soccer team to wins over Jacksonville University and University of North Florida.

Gators won 4-1 in Sunday match in Gainesville. September 9. Newton assisted on a goal in a 2-0 win over Texas State on August 26 and a 3-0 win over Lamar University on September 4. In the second half, Newton was moved to a center midelder and nished with 79 total minutes. LSU, 6-4-1 overall, 0-2-1 in SEC play, has now lost three straight with a tie to No. 9 Auburn, 0-0 in double overtime on September 19. The Tigers opened with an overtime loss to Villanova (2-1) before rattling off six wins with 11 goals scored and zero goals scored against the Tiger defense. LSU lost a 3-0 Southeastern Con ference match with No. 4 Texas A & M on September 14 before losing to Cincinnati 2-1 on September 16. Against the Gators, Marlena Cutura started it all by sending Shannon Cooke in down the right side of the pitch. Cooke took a dribble or two and her shot from 28 yards out was initially blocked by a Florida defender. The remnants of the blocked shot trickled into the box and it was a mad dash for the ball inside the box. Eaton maneu vered her way around the crisscrossed Ga tor defender and beat her to the ball before she nished it off with a shot to the far left post from eight yards out. Cooke was cred ited with the assist, which was the rst of her LSU career. After Eastons early goal for LSU, Flor ida tied the game 1-1 just before the half time break, then racked up three second half goals for the win. The Tigers will return to the friendly connes of LSU Soccer Stadium for a matchup against Alabama on Thurs., Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. By Randy Lefko and Aaron Hyder, LSU Asst. Communications Director

30 CLAY TODAY September 27, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM quarterback Walter Simmons, Jr., coun tered with a 44 yard sprint touchdown to break the Clay momentum shift. For Oakleaf coach Frank Garis, in his rst year as a head coach, taking on a for mer boss; Hoekstra at Clay High, was en lightening at best. Its not the rst time coaching against him (Hoekstra), but rst time as a head coach, said Garis, who was part of the Ponte Vedra High football program that de railed the Blue Devils in the Class 5A state seminal two years ago in a 52-42 thriller. I learned so much from him and hes a great friend. Its a huge challenge to coach against him, but we had a job to do. Oakleaf (3-1, 1-0 in district 3-7A) continues their monumental season turn around from a 2-8 season last year with a record-setting 69-53 district 3-7A win over Bartram Trail, the win over Clay with another district matchup against Fleming Island on Friday. The Knights lone loss was a 32-26 setback to 4A-Glades Central in week two. For Clay (1-4, 0-1), Hoekstra may have answered a question of readiness after last weeks disastrous 29-28 district 5-5A loss to a renewed Orange Park High team that is also responding to their 1-9 team of 2017. I think the Orange Park game woke us up to how good or how not so good we can be, said Hoekstra. I put much of the blame (Orange Park loss) on myself for some coaching decisions, but tonight we may have seen some spark for our upcom ing district schedule. We needed to regroup for Menendez (second district game on Fri day). Oakleaf, with a barrage of points against Bartram Trail last week that led to a 35-26 halftime score, was saddled in the rst half by a divide and conquer defensive strategy, with defensive tackle Ty Summer fords number 57 seemingly always around King, that limited the space King had to op erate in while securing the ball on offense to keep King on the sideline as Oakleaf got just a pass touchdown to wideout Antonio Marshall to hold a slim 7-0 lead after the rst quarter. Clay s strategy of keeping King bottled up worked, but the latter part of the strate gy never emerged as the Blue Devil offense was stymied by two four-down series. On the Blue Devil defense, lineback ers Joe Reed and Mason Adams shadowed King from his rst jab step and met him at the line of scrimmage to limit his potential damage. Simmons was relegated to fakes to King being effective to set up throws downeld to Marshall, Sean Washington and Ter rance Anthony with Marshall snatching a 35 yard post pattern for the lone score. On the rst play of the second quarter, after Simmons directed a 11-play drive with two third down conversions to the Clay three, King crashed in to up the score to 14-0. Key plays on the drive were two seven yard runs by fullback Adrian Grey; Devils from page 23 one on third and three and a second on second and 10 to the Clay 44 that set up a Simmons 36 yard run after a fake to King to the Clay eight yard line. After a miss to Marshall, King lugged the ball into the end zone. Clay looked desperate to stop any po tential outburst by the Knights and Hoek stra settled in with seniors Cedrick Brown and Abbott Taylor challenging the interior of Oakleafs defense before quarterback Turner Erstad went airborne twice to wide out Spencer LeSage for quick outs of six and 12 yards to the Oakleaf 28 yard line. Brown and LeSage exchange carries and catches to the 20 before Erstad found junior wideout Brishaun Britt for nine yards to the 11 before two shots by LeSage got a Blue Devil touchdown with 5:32 left in the half. In the blink of a proverbial football eye, King, after a kickoff return from Darrius Allen to the Knight 34 yard line, shredded off right tackle for his second score of the night and a quick 21-7 Oakleaf edge just 21 seconds after most fans thought the game was going to become a defensive slugfest. King would nish with 195 yards on the night; mostly in big chunks. Clay again regrouped behind LeSage and Erstad and took three minutes to cut the lead to 21-14 with a eight play drive highlighted by a Derek Holt catch and run for 15 yards to the Clay 45 and Brown pounding for 12 on the next snap to mid eld to set up a Erstad to LeSage jump ball touchdown pass to put the game at 21-14 with 2:04 still left in the second quarter. Spencer was mad at himself for two plays against Orange Park that he had, said Hoekstra. He played strong. A pooch kickoff got Oakleaf rst down at their own 37 and Simmons again used the danger of King; a fake handoff, to free Marshall for his second touchdown, a 30 yarder after just 20 seconds ticked off the clock with Oakleaf pushing to a 27-14 half time lead. Clay opened the second half with their rst successful onsides kick and posses sion at the Oakleaf 47 with Taylor rum bling for three and Brown crashing for 28 to the Knights 19 where beefy freshman AlQuerius Ray pounded the interior of the Knights defense for gains of three, and 10 before scoring from six to score the game 27-21 in just three minutes. King again for 26 yards to the Clay 34 preluded a magnicent sideline catch from Marshall to the Clay ve where King scored to push Oakleaf to a 34-21 lead and fans wondering if another 70-60 barnburn er was about to happen. Mixing the now energized Clay offense with Rays heft pounding the interior and LeSage on the corners, Erstad directed an other 10 play drive that had no third downs with Ray punching out a 15 yarder and LeSage grabbing a 12 yard pass to set up a Tucker Reape eld goal to score the game 34-24 with 4:30. Erstad had two near-miss passes to have Hoekstra settle for the eld goal. Hoekstra slyly called for onsides kick number two and the Blue Devil sideline erupted at its success smelling yet another The battle of the line of scrimmage featured Oakleaf Highs Seger Mckisick and King Solomon, on right, versus Clay Highs Ty Summerford and Cody Devore, on left. Clay miracle comeback. Our front line bailed on the rst one (onsides kick) and the second one we didnt even attack it the way we should have, said Garis. Those were great calls at that point by them. We have to do a better job of executing in that situation. From the Oakleaf 41, Ray took two snaps to trample for 16 yards with Erstad missing Britt at the end zone pylon. Back to Ray for six and Abbott for three more set up a reverse to LeSage from the Knights 21 to put the game at 34-31 and Oakleaf seemingly reeling at the audacity of the Blue Devils to not wilt. On the next Oakleaf series, Clay defen sive end Cody Devore stormed in on Sim mons and got a strip sack that put the Blue Devil fan base into delirium. From the Oakleaf 45, Erstad hit Holt for six yards with Ray pounding for three yards in two carries to set up a third and seven at the Oakleaf 26. From there, Oakleaf senior middle line backer Dexter Moore crashed through the Clay offensive line and piledrived Erstad into the ground for a ve yard loss and a fourth and 11 yard situation for Clay. Hes our lightning bolt, said Garis. That play shook us awake. We kind of slowed down a little bit coming out for the second half and when that happened, it ig nited everybody. On the fourth down play, Erstad at tempted to throw to LeSage on an out pat tern, but the pass fell short. Oakleaf did not answer on the big de fensive stop and Clay had one more breath left after Taylor, playing noseguard, and Jeremy Sims, the starting noseguard, combined with Ty Summerford, also a noseguard, clogged the middle of the Clay defense and stopped King on a fourth and 15 to give Clay possession at their own 35 with nearly nine minutes left in the game. Hoeksta went right back to Ray and Ab bott to try and get the knockout blow on the Oakleaf defense and, after LeSage, at quarterback, nished off a fourth and four to mideld for a rst down, Erstad got caught by linebacker Marcus Anthony for an interception near mideld that put King back on the eld with 5:51 on the clock. Eleven seconds later, and 44 yards of running, King upped the score to 41-31 by outracing Clay linebacker Mason Adams to the corner of the end zone. A kickoff by kicker Brandon Ammons to the end zone put Clay on the 20 and the Blue Devils needing to throw. This time, it was Chrystian Sellers who read Erstads pass and put the Knights back on offense at the Clay 38 where Simmons took two plays before hitting wideout Terrance Anthony on a hook pass that Anthony spun and eluded defensive back Eric Predmore to nish off the score and the nal 49-31 score. With a third quarterback in, sophomore T.K. Kocak, Clay tried to move the ball and nearly got Sellers a second interception before the game ended. Oakleaf travels to Fleming Island for a key district 3-7A clash while Clay travels to Pedro Menendez for their second dis trict 5-5A game. Oakleaf High assistant coach Mark Michaels gets the attention of his special teams players as the Knights get set to take the eld against Clay. Oakleaf won 49-31.

I just went in the last mile. Im feeling better in the ve mile courses. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Fla.) was the top non-Division I team with 102 points.

Kailes from page 25 Fleming Island High wins team titles By Randy Lefko Sports Editor MIDDLEBURG Two names emerged at the Clay County High School Cross Coun try Championships held Tues., Sept. 18 at Middleburg High, and they were not the winners of the races with both pushing Fleming Islands girls and boys teams to team titles. Fleming Island High sophomore Kam eron Wallizada continued his assault on the running scene in north Florida with a decisive win in the boys race in 17 min utes, 24.64 seconds while Fleming Island freshman Mei Chiang did the same with a 20:54.1 winning time in the girls race. The emerging names belong to Flem ing Islands Will Livesay for the boys, who has followed Wallizada closely in the past two races and who snuck in at fourth overall in the county boys race. For the girls, junior Jennifer Fliess, who was third Fleming Island nisher at last years district 1-4A championship race with a time of 20:05.95 and then fell to a disappointing 23:13 time for 104th at the region 1-4A race, has quietly put herself back into the top ve picture with her recent nishes. In 2018, Fleiss hit a second place 23:13 in the junior varsity race at the Bob Hans Invite at Ridgeview on September 1 then a 22:52 for second in the junior var sity at the Horsepark Invitational in Ocala on September 8. At the county championship race, Fliess was fourth Fleming Island nisher in 22:28.88 as the Golden Eagles girls took the team title with four nishers in the top ve. Next up for Fliess was the Katie Ca ples Elite race where she would be up against some of the best teams in Florida at this point in the season. Fliess dropped her time to a quick 21:11 to place fth n isher for Fleming Island in an effort that secured fth place for the Golden Eagles. Jennifer is my go to girl for any race, said Fleming Island girls coach Suzanne Baker. She was never intended for the JV squad this year she just happened to miss the rst meet this year so she needed to earn her spot back. She has the crazy ability to run exactly what I ask of her. Livesay has crept closer and closer to the top with a 17:22.50 split for 19th at Bartram Trail. After his times started dropping at the end of cross country and track last year, I think he realized his potential and really bought into the training, said Fleming Island boys coach Karen Moritz. I fully expect to see him dip below 17 minutes as we inch to the post season. While Wallizada has pushed his times to near 16:30, Livesay has approached the elusive sub-17 mark that would give the Fleming Island boys team a jolt in team scoring for the upcoming district and region races. At the Clay County race, Orange Park senior John Bear nished second in 17:37.09 with Oakleaf High junior Dylan Nelson third in 17:39.86. Livesay was fourth with Ridgeview senior Joel Nesi fth in 18:14.82.

A shanked punt by Middleburg running back Tyler Bryant, net two yards, after Jus tino was shaken up on a run, put Johnson and friends at the Bronco 30 yard. Johnson again took the direct snap and veered to the end zone for a quick 13-0 Raider lead with Middleburg stopping a two-point con version try. We tried to do a few different things on extra points to show our opponents, on lm, some different things and we just didnt do a good job executing and we missed some extra points, said Macpher son. Last week, points won us the Clay game. We got a two-point conversion and made three extra points and that won us the game. This week we didnt do a good job. The Broncos took the ensuing kickoff and drove 75 yards in under three minutes to bring the score back to 13-7 when Jus tino was cleared to return and found Tyler Bryant open for a touchdown pass at 4:53. The blitz hurt us a little bit and got us into some trouble, said Macpherson. We didnt do a good job tackling and we have to work on that. On the counter drive by the Raiders, the Broncos got a huge boost going into the locker room when Noah Janda and Brody Senn led a group of Broncos that smoth ered Raider quarterback Vinney Walker for a sack to end the half. Any momentum Middleburg got from the half-ending sack was lost with an inter ception at the 50 followed by another John son touchdown as Orange Park pushed to a 19-7 lead. We did a better job in the second half defending the pass and seeing the screens, said Macpherson. All in all, our defense showed up, but we still have to do a better job. On the next Bronco drive, with Mid dleburg starting on the 34, a screen pass bounced off the receiver and right into Raider defender Antwuan Coopers hands. In less than ve minutes, the Raiders had two interceptions resulting in scores, 25-7. After a brief Bronco drive that resulted in a punt, the Raiders took over from the 21 yard line, ran a play action to Alex Col lier that sucked in the Bronco defensive backs and left Johnson all alone deep down the eld for a 79 yard scoring pass from quarterback Vinny Walker for a 32-7 lead. On the return drive, Justino was again picked off as Raider Diallo Bryant jumped the route to put his team back on offense. With only 13 seconds left in the third quarter, Walker looked up to see wideout Umar Young all alone, hit him with a per fect strike and went 51 yards for the nal dagger in the Broncos, 39-7. In the nal quarter, the Broncos would get two more possessions that nished with a punt on one drive, and stopped short with fourth down and short to go. Our kickoffs were terrible, said Mid dleburg High coach Karl Smeltzer. I think we had guys jogging. I dont think we had guys running down the eld and playing real hard. Our kicker on the rst two kicks in the rst half were terrible so we have to clean that whole thing up. Orange Park will face off against anoth er district foe this week with a home game against the Ridgeview Panthers. The Bron cos will hit the road and head over to Jack sonville to face off against another district game with the Ed White Commanders. Orange Park coach Tom Macpherson has the Raiders operating at a high-scoring pace with Ridgeview coming for district 5-5A match.

We have a lot of young guys and were just going to lay low, hide and be ready for November, said Fleming Island coach P.J. Cobbert, also the director of the North Florida Wrestling Academy. We had a good showing and were geting 40-50 kids to wrestling practice every night. They are ready to get on it. Newcomer Tanner Hill, at 163, also n ished second with a tough loss in the nals.

We like to get this meet under our belt, but I think the October date for the Super 32 is a little close to the start of our sea son, said Cobbert. Well let the kids and their parents think about whether they go or not. Cusick, an add-on wrestler from Bishop Kenny High School (5th in Class 1A at 152 last year) who trains at the NFWA, lost to Lake Gibson wrestler Elijah Gray in the 155 nal 3-2 after dispatching of four wrestlers to advance. Gray also beat Chop in the quarternals to push Chop to the consolation rounds. Chop advanced to the quarternal with three wins; a 1-0 deci sion, a 9-1 major decision and a 7-2 over time decision. In consolation, Chop fought for a top four spot; a 1-0 overtime match, a 1-0 de cision and a 4-1 decision and nished third by forfeit when Winter Springs Hayden McCandless chose to not wrestle. Luke is a strong, mobile guy out there and he is improving his footwork, said Cobbert. Cusick is a strong wrestler from Bishop Kenny that has trained with us all summer. They will both be expected to ex cel come November. At 135, Dalton Baysinger won two deci sions and via pin to advance to the quar ternals, but lost by pin to drop to the con solation rounds where he lost by pin to Ted Gjerde of Charlotte, NC. In the middle school ranks, Green Cove Springs Junior Highs Jhoel Robinson won four matches to take the 140 pound title. Robinson had two major decisions; 10-0 and 11-2, a decision (9-2) and won the title with a 26 second pin. I watched one of his matches and kids like him are how we are going to equal last years team, said Cobbert. Not this year so much because we are young, but we got some hammers coming and, in two years, we are going be strong top to bottom like last year. Wrestling for the Clay Wrestling team middle school division, Liam Davis won the 70 pound division with two pins and an 8-4 decision in the nal. Wyatt Leduc placed fourth at 100 pounds to advance with a bye, a loss by pin in the quartenal then three consola tion round wins before falling by pin four fourth place.

From the opening kickoff, Monroe moved sideline to sideline with Walden, Ar nold and Mathew Kelley taking quick toss es and making yards off blocks from Tanner Walker and Marcus Coleman on the edges. Monroe just missed a wide open Arnold on second and 15 from near mideld be fore nding Walden on the same pass two snaps later on fourth down and 11 for a rst down. Walden hauled in the post pat tern pass near the 20 and strode in un touched for the rst score of the night at 9:08. Monroe kicked the PAT to put St. Johns up 7-0. Chipoletti called for an onside kick, but got agged for offsides on the rst try, but Walker scooped up the second kick to put the Spartan offense back on the eld at the 44 yard line. A jet sweep to Arnold put St. Johns at the Deaf 24 for a 32 yard pickup that led to Monroe faking the jet sweep to Walden and setting up a second and two that Walden grabbed a quick out to get a third and one for the Spartans. Walker, behind Coleman, got the rst down pass to the Deaf four yard line where Monroe nished off the drive with a run up the middle and a 14-0 St. Johns lead with 7:05 still in the rst quarter. On the kickoff, Monroe set up with Kel ley and Walden set up as possible kickers as Chipoletti went for a third onsides kick. Florida Deaf took over on offense after a lengthy referee discussion and moved behind an off-tackle offense. Tackles by Walden and a quarterback rush from Wyatt Smith set up a fourth and seven at mideld for Florida Deaf. A sack from Walden gave St. Johns possession at mideld. Walden took the rst handoff off left tackle behind tackle Ashton Corriea and put St. Johns at the Florida Deaf 30 for a 20 yard gain. On rst down, Coleman found a gaping hole in the middle of the Florida Deaf with Grayson Hall and Mosborg clearing a path for a 12 yard gain to the Deaf eight yard line. Monroe optioned left to Walden for a score to put St. Johns up 21-0 as the sec ond quarter started. As the second quarter started, Walden stepped in front of a Florida Deaf receiver for what would have been a sure pick six play, but the ball fell to the turf. With 9:07 still in the half, St. Johns took over at their own 20 and opened with a jet sweep to Arnold behind Smith that got another rst down with Walden getting to the Deaf 38 yard line on his own jet sweep for 30 yards, but a ag put the ball back at the Deaf 38.

38 CLAY TODAY September 27, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM GREEN COVE SPRINGS Ofcials from the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce said Clay residents should be on the lookout for a Secret Shopper scam. Such types of fraud involve scammers who send out ofcial looking USPS Prior ity Mail or FedEx packages containing a check and instructions. The instructions tell the victim to cash the check and use the money to buy various gift cards. The unknowing victim is then directed to evaluate the customer service at such stores as Walmart, CVS and Walgreens as they purchase the gift cards. Victims are then asked to email or text their evaluation of the stores customer service, along with the gift cards activa tion code and a picture of the card so they can conrm the cards were activated. The victim is told that their reward is getting to keep a portion of the check for helping with the survey, but they cannot inform anyone. The scammer then uses the gift card information to retrieve the money stored on the cards. Sheriff Darryl Daniels urges residents that these checks are fraudulent and if anyone is asked to do this, to report it immediately to police. He said the checks are fake and will bounce. In the meantime, the victim is left with a felony fraud charge and the scammer has gift cards they will use to shop online. Daniels recommends not responding to any of the contact information and to check the tracking numbers on the pack age as tracking does not reect a return address and to report the incident to the Postal Inspector.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS AND REVISIONS FOR THE 2018 GENERAL ELECTION I, Ken Detzner, Secretary of State for Florida, do hereby give notice that the following proposed amendments and revisions to the Florida Constitution will be presented in each county on the 2018 General Election ballot. The language for these amendments may also be found at FloridaPublicNotices.com, at DOS.Elections. MyFlorida.com/initiatives, and at this newspapers website. NO. 1 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE VII, SECTION 6 ARTICLE XII, SECTION 37 BALLOT TITLE: Increased Homestead Property Tax Exemption BALLOT SUMMARY: Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to increase the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homestead property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies other than school district levies. The amendment shall take effect January 1, 2019. FULL TEXT: ARTICLE VII FINANCE AND TAXATION SECTION 6. Homestead exemptions. „ (a) Every person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner, or another legally or naturally dependent upon the owner, shall be exempt from taxation thereon, except assessments for special bene“ ts, up to the assessed valuation of twenty-“ ve thousand dollars and, for all levies other than school district levies, on the assessed valuation greater than “ fty thousand dollars and up to seventy-“ ve thousand dollars, and on the assessed valuation greater than one hundred thousand dollars and up to one hundred twenty-“ ve thousand dollars, upon establishment of right thereto in the manner prescribed by law. The real estate may be held by legal or equitable title, by the entireties, jointly, in common, as a condominium, or indirectly by stock ownership or membership representing the owners or members proprietary interest in a corporation owning a fee or a leasehold initially in excess of ninetyeight years. The exemption shall not apply with respect to any assessment roll until such roll is “ rst determined to be in compliance with the provisions of section 4 by a state agency designated by general law. This exemption is repealed on the effective date of any amendment to this Article which provides for the assessment of homestead property at less than just value. (b) Not more than one exemption shall be allowed any individual or family unit or with respect to any residential unit. No exemption shall exceed the value of the real estate assessable to the owner or, in case of ownership through stock or membership in a corporation, the value of the proportion which the interest in the corporation bears to the assessed value of the property. (c) By general law and subject to conditions speci“ ed therein, the Legislature may provide to renters, who are permanent residents, ad valorem tax relief on all ad valorem tax levies. Such ad valorem tax relief shall be in the form and amount established by general law. (d) The legislature may, by general law, allow counties or municipalities, for the purpose of their respective tax levies and subject to the provisions of general law, to grant either or both of the following additional homestead tax exemptions: (1) An exemption not exceeding “ fty thousand dollars to a person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner, who has attained age sixty-“ ve, and whose household income, as de“ ned by general law, does not exceed twenty thousand dollars; or (2) An exemption equal to the assessed value of the property to a person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate with a just value less than two hundred and “ fty thousand dollars, as determined in the “ rst tax year that the owner applies and is eligible for the exemption, and who has maintained thereon the permanent residence of the owner for not less than twenty-“ ve years, who has attained age sixty-“ ve, and whose household income does not exceed the income limitation prescribed in paragraph (1). The general law must allow counties and municipalities to grant these additional exemptions, within the limits prescribed in this subsection, by ordinance adopted in the manner prescribed by general law, and must provide for the periodic adjustment of the income limitation prescribed in this subsection for changes in the cost of living. (e) Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall receive a discount from the amount of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the veteran owns and resides in if the disability was combat related and the veteran was honorably discharged upon separation from military service. The discount shall be in a percentage equal to the percentage of the veterans permanent, serviceconnected disability as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for the discount granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to the county property appraiser, by March 1, an of“ cial letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs stating the percentage of the veterans service-connected disability and such evidence that reasonably identi“ es the disability as combat related and a copy of the veterans honorable discharge.
