Located off Sandridge Road near Ron nie Van Zant Park, and aptly called the Mid-Clay Wastewater Treatment Facility, Clay County Utility Authority ofcials said the rst phase of the $18.5 million project is about 40 percent complete. When phase one goes online, or in CCUA terms, is com missioned, the facility will treat 600,000 gallons of water per day. Phase one of the facility can handle another 2,900 homes, which would bring the total gallons of wa ter treated per day to 1.5 million. The Mid-Clay is located in the heart of the county, Johnston said. This is an area along the corridor of the expressway that we are planning for growth. We knew in mothballing the old plant that we were going to need an advanced treatment plant here. We had been looking at growth rates and when there was an uptick in the num ber of service availability requests for de velopments in the area, thats when we de cided to pull the trigger on moving forward with the plant. CCUA is in the process of selecting an engineer for the second phase but had no cost estimate for that portion of the proj ect. Design is expected to begin in 2019 with construction targeted for early 2020. This 80-acre treatment plant will sit on what used to be the home of a secondary water treatment facility.

Davis, a former Clay County commis sioner, said the board needed to be reim bursed for fuel to stay in operation for the next few weeks. Commissioners agreed to the request, but asked questions about the nancial difculties of the board. Options include decreasing the number of routes and decreasing drivers or staff. The Council on Aging operates Clay Transit, on a contract that ends in 2021, with a ridership of about 3,500 a month. The Council board will meet Oct at 9 a.m. to discuss a plan to bring before when county commissioners meet Oct. 23. Da vis said the council needed a tourniquet to stop the bleeding and would have more information by Tuesday. Well see where we are on Tuesday and give you whatever information at that point in time and see if we can put a plan to gether, Davis said. A major issue with the Council of Aging is meeting the payroll and the cost operat ing some routes to continue transportation services.

Jim Fossa, planning coordinator for the district, told school board members Oct. 4 to act now for the growth that will follow the nal phase of the First Coast Express way. In his role, Fossa gets to see rsthand how much development is in the works as he also sits on the Clay County Planning Commission. Every roof is a potential student in one of our schools, Fossa said. The more houses, the more students. Its that sim ple. Fossa said that while not every family is guaranteed to have a child, the num ber of houses built in an area can give a rough estimate of how many students will live in that area. For example, in the Lake Asbury area, already, seven developments have gone into the county building record and will soon be lled with homes. Fossa estimates that these seven developments, which will bring 3,547 homes to the area, will bring 885 new students. These students will likely go to school in the area and impact the student cen sus at either Lake Asbury Elementary or School district looks at impact of future housing growth Shadowlawn Elementary, Lake Asbury Ju nior High and Clay High schools. Most of these schools arent too far off from hitting capacity. Once those schools welcome in a percentage of the expected 885 students, Fossa said some of the schools could very well hit capacity or go over it. Its not a guarantee that we have the capabilities and space at our schools for that many students, Fossa said. This area isnt alone, either.

SEE GROWTH, 8 By Nick Blank Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS A wet and breezy Tuesday at the Historic Spring Park Public Access Pier didnt stop residents from sh ing and relaxing. Its quite the setup with a TV and a speaker blaring R&B music. Brian Coleman, 54, said he moved back to the city in 2016 after a career in the U.S. Army. He said the dock has a calming effect. I come out here in the morning and the evenings, Coleman said. Its peaceful. If Im not in the boat shing, Im at the docks just hanging out. In March, the Historic Spring Park Public Access Pier was slated to receive a $600,000 overhaul due to a legislative appropriation in the state budget. And now, the city is beginning the process of the re vamping the docks. Coleman pointed out the roof of the ga zebo and the wear on the dock. There could be improvements to the boarding, though it has held up pretty good, Coleman said. This [gazebo] roof is about gone. Really $600,000 isnt much with labor and things like that. Because of the weather, Andy Foun tain, 55, joked about adding an umbrella dispenser or a tiki bar at the pier. But he is appreciative of the repairs and said his want would be fencing and lighting. For me it would be better lighting at night, Fountain said. The improvements cover rehabilitating the oating dock, improving lighting and the gazebo, as well as creating a breakwa ter system to shield the current structure Spring Park dock repairs in the works CLAY TODAY FILE PHOTO Improvements are coming soon to the city pier in Green Cove Springs using a $600,000 alloca tion from the Florida Legislature.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference... Robert Frost By Mary Marcus O n October 26, 1963, we didnt know it then but, at 16, we were about to witness an im portant event connecting two presi dents, one from the North and one from the South. The three of us were 16 and one of us had a drivers license with access to the family station wagon. We took off. The trip from Chicopee, Massachusetts to Amherst was an hour or so away but culturally centuries. It was Saturday, well into the fall, and we were bundled up in the cold ear ly morning air. I had read in The Spring eld Union that President John Kennedy was coming to the opening of the Robert Frost Library. The excitement of seeing him up close fueled us across the hills and over the notch. I remember a huge military helicop ter landing in the eld and the president waving. He came up to us and shook hands and then went onto the college bandstand to give his speech. It was a festive day with dogs and kids running around on the college eld. The event was recorded in the archives at Amherst College. A handsome, charismatic, man was John Fitzgerald Kennedy. He had a glamour that caused me to focus on more than the speech content. Reading it now, I realize its importance in con necting Robert Frost to accessible cul ture and the arts. Public access to the arts was empha sized in his speech. I look forward to an America which will reward achievement in the arts as we reward achievement in business or statecraft. I look forward to an America which will steadily raise the standards of artistic accomplishment and which will steadily enlarge cultural opportu nities for all of our citizens. And I look forward to an America which commands respect throughout the world not only for its strength but for its civilization as well. And I look forward to a world which will be safe not only for democracy and diversity but also for personal distinc tion. Less than one month later, President Kennedy would travel to Dallas in a nal motorcade and die at Parkland hospital. It took a Southern President from Texas, a former school teacher, to insti tute The National Endowment For The Arts inspired by that speech at Amherst. On September 29, 1965, on sign ing the Arts and Humanities Bill, and as part of creating his Great Society, President Johnson said, In countless American towns, there live thousands of obscure and unknown talent. What this bill really does is to bring active support to this great national asset, to make fresher the winds of art in this great land of ours. The arts and the humanities belong to the people, for it is, after all, the peo ple who create them. By Joe Henderson FloridaPolitics.com F lorida remains divided on many po litical issues, but there seems to be strong bipartisan agreement about the issue of restoring voting rights for con victed felons, formally known as Amend ment 4. As Florida Poli tics reported, a re cent poll showed 74 percent support for the constitutional amendment on the ballot in November that would strike down voting prohi bitions for felons who have completed their sentences and parole or probation requirements. Those convicted of murder or sexual offenses would continue to be banned. It needs 60 percent to pass. That bipartisan support I mentioned 79 percent of independents and 88 percent of Democrats are in support, and even a majority of Republicans 59 percent said theyre in favor. Boiled down, this means the people of Florida had to go this route of a grassroots push for a constitutional amendment be cause Republican-controlled Tallahassee wouldnt budge fairness be damned. Florida is one of only three states Iowa and Kentucky are the other two to automatically and permanently bar felons from voting even after their sentences are complete. They can apply to the state for a restoration of rights, but not until ve years after their release. Most of the time, the answer is no and there is a backlog in the thousands of cases waiting to be heard. Amendment 4, if passed, would restore rights to an estimated 1.5 million people in Florida. Did we mention that maybe its the right thing to do? When Charlie Crist was governor, he restored the rights of thousands of non violent felons. That changed when Rick Scott took over. Thats when the legislative equivalent of Bobs Barricades was placed in front of felons to keep them from taking that next step into society and the voting booth.

Until that moment (if it ever comes), these citizens cannot legally vote for presi dents, governors, senators, representa tives, mayors, or school-board members. These citizens are subject to the conse quences of bills, actions, programs, and policies that their elected leaders enact and enforce. Naturally, Scott and Attorney Gen eral Pam Bondi fought the decision out of respect for the victims. Funny, Bondi wasnt so concerned about the victims of Trump Universitys money scam while she was receiving a $25,000 campaign check, but are we surprised? Im not. When a person is convicted of a felony in Florida, they already will face a lifetime of obstacles that will remind them daily that society has judged them to be failures. Getting a decent job with a felony on your record can be a problem. That means sup porting yourself or a family will be an on going struggle. Yes, they shouldnt have committed the crime. But lets say a felon is sentenced to ve years for robbery and serves that time. Society considers the debt paid, but Florida is like a loan shark who just keeps piling up that debt until it becomes unsus tainable on the individual. Politicians then like to say theyre tough on crime but what they really are is hardhearted and shortsighted. A person who feels more invested in society and voting can be a big part of that is less likely to fall back into trouble. I wouldnt expect the lawmakers we have now to embrace that idea, though. Its easier to demonize and tag people who made a serious mistake with a scarlet F for the remainder of their days. Thats why sometimes voters have to take the law into their own hands with things like Amendment 4. This is one of those times. n Joe Henderson appears courtesy of FloridaPolitics.com.

A portable classroom at the school was ofcially dedicated Oct. 4 as the one-ofa-kind Flamingo Island Sensory Room for students living with such aspects as Autism Spectrum Disorder, who can often need time to get away from too much light ing or too much sound. While the sensory room has been open since the start of this school year, the rib bon cutting ceremony served as a welcome party for the Clay County School Board, the Superintendent, district staff and students. Its so exciting because it gives stu dents an opportunity to step away for a few minutes and have their sensory needs met and Im so happy we [FIE] are able to have this for students, Principal Jennifer Collins said. Sometimes students get busy and feel the pressures of the classroom and this room gives them an opportunity to take a break. While any student at FIE is free to use the special room, its primary goal is to serve as a safe place for exceptional education students to go to when the pres sures of academics become too much to handle in any one moment. While the school and community donors Fleming Island Walmart, Halls Nursery and Flamingo Lake RV Resort helped the room come to fruition, the project was spearheaded by a FIE parent who has a student with the types of needs the room addresses. Katherine Findlays son, Steven, 9, is a third-grader at FIE who has autism. Steven has sensory needs that have to be managed during the school day, needs cant be met in a regular classroom. After what started as a simple Facebook fundraiser, Findlay secured funding from area partners on be half of FIE. Months later, the room is lled with dozens of sensory-specic activities and utilities. Findlay was honored to be a part of the team that made this sensory room happen and touched that the district cared for chil dren like hers just as much as she does. This is exceptional for me, Findlay said. I know that hell be able to get the proper therapy. He does have sensory is sues and now he has a place that he can come to, a place to take a break from, a place to release. While Findlay helped the FIE team secure funds from Fleming Island-area businesses, money also came from those who would be using the sensory room the children.

North Avenue Capital assisted Twelve Oaks Farm LLC in securing a USDA Rural Development Business & Industry loan to helped repurpose the 42-acre horse farm into a premier wedding and private event venue. With its natural setting, The Manor at 12 Oaks Farm offers a lake, a bridal suite, grooms quarters, horses, a stone terrace and parking for up to 300 guests. Located near such cities as Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Gainesville, Daytona and Ocala, the newly-renovated venue is al ready hosting and accepting bookings for private parties, corporate gatherings and weddings. The Manor came out of the recogni tion of a lack of affordable event options for residents of North Florida. NAC Owner Steve Magiera, was eager to transition out of corporate life and follow his dream to start his own business. I found NAC in 2017 as traditional lending options werent going to meet the unique requirements of this project, said Magiera. He said NAC and the loan pro vides the structure and stability needed to see his vision become a reality. According to NAC CEO Ben Chatraw, The Manor is a great example of rural busi nesses struggling to secure nancing. Not only will The Manor create last ing memories for their guests, but they will contribute greatly to job and revenue growth for Clay County, Chatraw said. The Manor offers a menu of services from wedding planning to catering, oral design and photography. Whether guests choose to use The Manors partners to cre ate a full-service package or bring their own personal touch to their special day, Magiera said The Manor provides multiple indoor and outdoor settings for ceremo nies, meetings, dining, dancing and photos nearly year-round. The Manor prides itself in giving guests, whether bride and groom, family and friends, or business leaders, exclusive access to the grounds for a memorable day, Magiera said. Located south of Green Cove Springs, The Manor is within 80 miles of 2.3 million Northeast Florida residents, ideal for wed dings and events hosting up to 300 guests.

8 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 11, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM Growth from page 2 Fleming Island and Black Creek areas, there are already eight developments on record as going into the area. These eight developments will bring in 466 homes and roughly 274 projected students. While thats not nearly as many potential stu dents when compared to the Lake Asbury area, the schools in this area are close to capacity. Paterson Elementary on Fleming Island is already at 98 percent. The only reason were at 98 percent and not at or over capacity is because we just added three portables, Fossa said. Of all the regions, though, the region of Clay County with schools closest to capac ity is the Oakleaf/Middleburg area. Most of these schools capacities are less than 5 percent away from capacity, with some schools, like Oakleaf High School already exceeding capacity. Our schools are pretty full here, Fossa said. That area is already boom ing, but there another 10 developments going in, which equates to just over 3,000 homes, will bring in roughly 739 students. Our school board needs to determine what to do with numbers like that. These numbers dont even take into account the two Developments of Re gional Impact coming to Clay County. The Governors Park and Saratoga Springs DRIs will bring over 10,000 homes to the county(when at nal buildout), which Fos sa estimates will bring in 4,747 students. These students coupled with the 3,338 stu dents county developments are expected to bring in mean one thing and one thing only to Fossa. We need more schools, Fossa said. Theres no way around it. Fossa said he hopes that the school board and the district work together to be proactive rather than reactive to this in coming growth. The rst step for the school district, according to Fossa, is to determine funding. The district needs to build schools and naturally, it needs money to do so. Even with impact fees, the district is still $91 million short of the funding need ed to build necessary schools. Because of that, Fossa urged the school board and staff to begin preparations now. To be proactive, Fossa recommended that the district prepare now by determin ing funding stream alternatives. He also warned that if the district fails to be proac tive, the school district will see more por tables and accelerated construction time lines meaning higher building costs. How will 2028 Clay County look back at us? Fossa asked. Will they see that we prepared them for the future or will they see that we left them a mess? The school board did not take action on Fossas presentation, but took it under ad visement for future planning. By Eric Cravey Managing Editor MELROSE After a rough rst try at preaching, the young Billy Graham turned to the sandy shores of Lake Swan Camp to practice his oration skills. After weeks of study at Florida Bible College, Grahams mentor John Minder asked him to give his rst sermon at Bost wick Baptist Church, south of Green Cove Springs. A nervous and inexperienced Gra ham ended up giving four sermons in just eight minutes. He said he was preaching to just about 40 cowboys and farmers and so forth and he preached everything in eight min utes and thats true four sermons. But, Dr. Minder saw something in him and he encouraged that. He encouraged him to preach and so he did and thats true, said Gigi Graham Wilson, the evangelists oldest daughter. Hed preach to stumps and trees and frogs and alligators and anything around him that would listen or didnt listen, she said Aug. 26 at a celebration in which the Billy Graham Chapel at Lake Swan Camp was re-dedicated after a remodeling proj ect. Minder founded the camp in 1927 and in September 1972, Graham returned to Lake Swan Camp to honor his mentor as keynote speaker at the dedication of Mind er Hall. Wilson said God brought Minder and her father together in 1937 at a very spe cial time in the young Grahams life. While a student at Bob Jones College, then-locat ed in Cleveland, Tennessee, Graham had questions he felt were unanswered at the school. He didnt feel that he could express himself spiritually, she told the crowd of about 200 guests. And then, one day, a friend showed him an ad for Florida Bible Institute near Tampa in Temple Terrace. He felt that he was being conned so someone gave him an ad for this Bible school in Tampa, Florida in Temple Ter race and it had palm trees and orange trees and sunshine, and he just thought God lower my prideand he talked to my grandparents about it and they agreed, Wilson said. Wilson refers to that moment in her fa thers life as though it was simply meant to happen. God is always on time, she said. When Graham moved to Florida, he studied pastoral theology and hermeneu tics under Minder. Wilson said her father opened up because Minder was so encour aging. She described Minder as having a different personality, a different way of looking at things. Wilson read from one of her fathers memoirs where he recalled his time study ing with Minder. In the book, Graham said, Instead of resenting his advice, I wanted to hear ev erything he could tell me, and he did not dictate to me what to think or what to do, but rather be open and free thinking to consider the perfect trustworthiness of God for the rest of my life. Grahams rst trip to Lake Swan Camp came after his rst sermon in Bostwick. Minder asked Graham to come to the camp one summer and the young student thought he was asked there to be the speaker. What he found was a set of completely different duties. He came up here thinking, OK. Ive already been preaching, and Dr. Minder thinks Im good, and so maybe hell give me opportunities to speak and he got up here and he didnt get the opportunities to speak, Wilson said. He had to wash dishes and mow lawns and then he was a lifeguard and then it Lake Swan Camps Graham Chapel rededicated Gigi Graham, Rev. Billy Grahams oldest child, is all smiles as she holds up the sign honoring her fathers legacy of attending the camp as a young man. He went to the camp after being invit ing by his mentor, John Minder, who was also his teacher at Bible College in Temple Terrace, Fla.

She said she believed that was Gods way of training her father and using him and helping him move to a place God want ed him to be. And sometimes we get impatient, but I appreciate the fact of all that Dr. Minder did, she said. But Billy Graham learned more than how to be a pastor from Minder, accord ing to Wilson. He learned how to be a wellrounded person. Daddy was a man of integrity until the day he died. He learned a lot, I believe from Dr. Minder, Wilson said. She said Minder also taught Graham humility, leadership skills and wisdom and to never criticize his critics. Not only that, he listened to them be cause he said, You never know that they might have something to sayand he lis tened to them, she said. However, more importantly, Wilson said, Minder taught her father how to stick to the teachings of Jesus Christ. They both had the same message. They both knew they had to focus on the mes sage of Jesus Christ, the gospel of Jesus Christ and they didnt veer off from that, she said. Church from page 8

Well dont be alarmed, nothing sinister is going on inside, it is just a group getting a game of Pickleball in. If you have never heard of Pickleball, well welcome to the newest sports craze. The USA Pickleball Association calls it one of the fastest growing sports in America. Pickleball has rules that are very similar to tennis but is played on a smaller court. For example, 2 pickleball courts can t in the same space as a standard tennis court. Pickleball players use a large paddle, similar to a ping pong paddle, to hit a wife ball across the net to score points. Accord ing to the USA Pickleball, Joel Pritchard, Bill Bell and Barney McCallum are cred ited with creating the sport in 1965. Glee Glisson, Green Cove Springs Park and Recreation Program director, brought the sport here as a new program. She has a history of playing Pickleball, having played for 2 years and even competing across the state in different tournaments. Glisson said one of the best things Pickleball grows in Green Cove Springs PHOTO PROVIDED BY CITY OF GREEN COVE SPRINGS Parks & Recreation Director Glee Glisson, at far right, stands proudly with some of the regu lars who play Pickleball each week at Thomas Hogans Memorial Gym. about Pickleball is that it can be play as casually as players like or as competitively as possible and there are places for all skill levels. You can play this sport as competitively as youd like to, use it for weight loss, use it for cardiovascular endurance, said Glisson Overall its for good t ness. Glisson said attendance at the weekly games has seen a sharp increase as word has ltered through the community. She said she sees more and more people coming all the time. Danny Blevins is a volunteer who helps set up the games each week has been playing Pickleball for 3 years and said he was introduced to the sport by a friend. We used to play tennis together and then I got to where I could not play ten nis, said Blevins She asked me to check out Pickleball.

When we have hit our lowest point, it will show the true colors in those around us. The community of Keystone Heights has shown its absolute best in the last few weeks as families have rallied around a family of boys who are going through a tragedy. On Oct. 7, Freedom Baptist Church in Keystone Heights held a benet concert to help the Ulsch brothers who tragically lost both of their parents in September. On Sept. 18, Holly Marie Ulsch, 39, was driving a truck with her 38-year-old husband Phillip but known to his friends as Josh, when their 2005 Toyota Tacoma was struck by a Freightliner Tractor-Trailer driven by Alfred D. Pope, 57, of Middle burg. Both Holly and Phillip were killed, land lfet behind their 6 sons who range in age from age 13 to 8 months. No charges have been brought against Pope but Flor ida Highway Patrol has said that charges are pending. Jason Stephens, pastor of Freedom Baptist Church where the family would regularly attend church services, was tasked with telling the boys about the trag edy. Soon the outpouring of support began, and Stephens decided to do something more to help the family. Stephens and his staff had already been in contact with the Jim Brady Trio and this past spring had set up for them to come to the church on Oct. 7, but in wake of the tragedy, decided that something more needed to be done. We contacted Jim and just said We would like to do something special for these boys, a benet concert, said Stephens. Jim Brady, leader of the band, agreed and the performance was changed into a benet concert for the boys, with dona tions being collected to benet their family. It is a joy for us to be here, said Brady at the concert. We wanted to interject some hope and some gladness and some joy into despair, said Stephens. The band, consisting of singers Jim Brady, his wife Melissa Brady and Nate Jones, performed for the congregation and members of the community in order to bring some joy to the boys and to show them that the community is there for them. A GoFundMe account has been created for the boys by their aunt, Hillary Ulsch. It only took 19 days for the account to reach its $30,000 goal. Community concert benets Ulsch family PHOTO BY JOSHUA TORRES The Jim Brady Trio turned what was a previously-scheduled regular concert into a benet con cert for the Ulsch family after Pastro Jason Stephens explained how Freedom Baptist Church was helping the Ulsch family in the aftermath of a fatal accident that killed their parents. Shown here are four of the six Ulsch boys left behind by Josh and Holly Ulsch of Keystone Heights who were killed Sept. 18 in a trac accident on Ford Road at Buckhead Trail in Nassau County. We contacted Jim and just said We would like to do something special for these boys, a benet concert. Jason Stephens, pastor of Freedom Baptist Church Thank you all for the outpouring of love and support for my six nephews and all of our family. I want to update you as to the use of these funds, said Ulsch in an up date on the GoFundMe account. Donations for the boys are still being collected.

Collins said some students require the pressure of a hold or a hug. For this, the room has many areas for students to lay or sit that can apply this pressure. One fourth-grader, Aiden Harris, 9, climbed into a cloth hammock to help him discon nect from the outside world and regain his focus. When the environment gets too loud, or the lights get too bright, or anything that Harris needs to get away from, he can climb into the hammock, lay down and re lax as the hammock closes in around him. According to Harris teacher, Stepha nie Ross, the hammocks swaddling effect calms him down and makes him feel better. Sometimes they just need a break, Ross said. Academic work can put a lot of pressure on Aiden, but anytime he needs it, this room is here for him. While some of the rooms tools are strictly meant for sitting or splaying on the oor, other tools can be used to refo cus a student, or give them something else to do when academic work becomes over bearing. There are light-based puzzles, a bouncy stationary bike, vibrating tubes with fake sh inside and bubbles within, and more. Theres a tool for every sensory need students at FIE might have. Students who dont have special needs are asked to schedule a time to go to the new sensory room, but students with sen sory needs can access the space at any time. School Superintendent Addison Davis praised the schools and communitys ef forts to create such a special place for stu dents who are often simply misunderstood. We know that this type of environment will allow our students to engage and in teract with a number of their surroundings and really get to a point where they can interact and react to a much larger world within and outside of the classroom, Davis said. We know that sensory rooms will al low our students to have greater access to different parts of their brains, so they can really interact and react with different learning modalities every day, he said.

We use a biological treatment process that moves from aeration bays, to clariers and then theres added ltration and chlo rination at the end of the process, which makes sure that all of the microbes are essentially gone, Johnston said. It has a far lower level of nitrogen, phosphorus and other constituents in the water. Once the water goes through this cleaning process, it is used for irrigation, not drinking water. Beyond the need for greater ow rates in the area, Johnston said CCUA also looked at nutrient levels of other plants. Because the growth is currently tied to CCUAs Ridaught facility, that plant was bumping up against its regulatory thresholds. John ston said its necessary to have this new advanced water treatment plant to allevi ate ows at the Ridaught plant while also meeting regulatory requirements. The ex pansion will also result in increased in re served capacity at both Ridaught and MidClay, as well as help prolong the life of the Ridaught plant. This new advanced water treatment facility wont just be benecial to the MidClay area it will benet the greater Clay County community as well. When it comes to the greater com munity, having the utility capacity there to provide both pod-able water and waste water treatment is very important because you cannot support the homes and busi nesses in Clay County if you dont have that infrastructure there, Johnston said. This facility will help some 2,000 area homeowners move off of septic tanks and get on the CCUA system. Removing septic tanks from the community lessens the risk of unnecessary nitrogen getting into water ways and causing such problems as algae bloom. A centralized treatment facility pro vides you with the capability to treat a lot more water with a higher standard, John ston said. When you think about 2,000 septic tanks, that would be 2,000 homes that this area would normally have sep tic tanks there, you wont need the septic tanks for a centralized facility. So, youre getting a higher level of treatment, which allows you to have a higher density of population so that helps those residential communities. Johnston said when phase one of the construction is complete, up to 6,000 homes can be serviced by the facil ity. When phase two is complete, 12,000 homes could receive irrigation water from this new plant. While utility rates will change, Johnston said the changes will be minimal. Even after these changes, Clay County will still see some of the lowest utility rates in this region of Florida. PHOTO PROVIDED BY CLAY COUNTY UTILITY AUTHORITY Kicked o in 2016, phase one of an expansion project at the Mid-Clay Wastewater Treatment Facility is on track to be completed by years end. When complete, the facility has the future capacity to treat up to 3 million gallons of water per day for the center of the county, but when it goes online, it is expected to treat 600,000 gallons of water per day. The excess capacity will be on reserve for future housing growth.

He has long hair and a huge uy tail. His paws are quite large and we believe he is a Maine Coon mix. He is super friendly and loves to rub on your legs. He likes to be held, hugged and snuggled. This baby is a gem. Come and see him soon! Caspian Caspian is a 4 year old Border Collie mix. He was a case animal in an abuse case at another shelter in Florida. He is now SAFE. Yet, he desperately needs a loving home. He is sweet as can be and aectionate. He does not seem to hold his former owners abuse against people as a whole, he is just craving love. He is a beautiful color gray and white with the typical Collie spots on his nose. If you stick your face up to the kennel he licks you right through the fencing. He is just the most amazing creature. Loss from page 1 said he hadnt had the opportunity to con duct a full cash ow analysis of the trans portation, but the losses totaled about $15,000 a month. Those cash savings [from cuts] are go ing to accumulate over time. Theyre not going to happen overnight. Getting them through this crunch would require some ex ternal assistance, Price said. ($15,000) would need to be the minimum amount of cash needed to be infused to make sure they could make payroll without bor rowing between funds or anything else, but that could rise to $20,000$25,000 a month. In a prelimi nary estimate, Price said slashing all ex lines would save the council more than $700,000 in salaries, benets and van ex penses, though it would lose $365,000 in revenue. Council on Aging Executive Direc tor Al Rizer told BCC members he wanted to make sure other council funds werent impacted by the losses and the transpor tation services saw a decline in revenue. Rizer told commissioners in May that loss es totaled about $200,000 in 2017, and a report given at the May 22 meeting said the organization needed about $650,000 from the countys general fund to maintain services for another year. Its very clear the problem is transpor tation, Rizer said. Its the lack of revenue compared to what weve gotten in the past. Davis and Rizer identied routes to cut such as the teal routes, from Keystone Heights to Black Creek, which has about 45 riders a month. ElderSource, an agency that provides resources to seniors, said if the council does not meet payroll it could potentially end contracts between the two agencies. The Council on Aging was advanced two months of services worth about $144,000, ElderSource Chief Financial and Opera tions Ofcer JaLynne Santiago said. We want to know what these next 30 days look like, Santiago said. County Commissioner Wayne Bolla said he was open to helping the council in a time of crisis, but was surprised little ac tion had been taken on unprotable routes since the discussions earlier in the year. As a board member, I dont have any problem giving you a bridge loan keeping the Council on Aging aoat, but what re ally burns me is Ive been talking about this since February we had our auditor in there in the spring, Bolla said. Multiple commissioners raised the pos sibility of assisting Clay Transit, with the caveat of needing more evidence steps would be taken to cut costs. Commission ers Gavin Rollins and Diane Hutchings echoed that the main challenge facing the agency was related to sustainability. They said the commissioners need the council to provide a plan going forward. Ultimately, the decision to reduce routes and laying off drivers lies with the council. Rollins said potentially cutting transportation funding would not affect other senior services. I think theres any number of pos sibilities once we have clarity, but right now were talking about a bunch of fu ture hypotheticals, Rollins said. Clar ity is what we need, and I think clarity is what well have in a week and a half. Clay County Auditor Mike Price cautioned the Board of County Commissioners Oct. 9 that the Council on Aging of Clay County, which operates the Clay Transit program, will have trouble meeting its next payroll due to lost revenue from lower ridership. The Council board is going to meet Oct. 16. Wendell Davis and building additions on the pier. The only way to maintain a oating dock in this area of the river is to protect the dock from wave action, according to the citys application. Assistant City Manager and Public Works Director Mike Null said the improve ments would be administered similar to the Florida Recreation Development Assis tance Program grant program. City council members approved the application Oct. 2. The breakwater system will help miti gate the impact the Noreasters that come in and beat up the oating dock, Null said. Well kind of rebuild the oating dock, the Dock from page 2 utilities, the gazebo, kind of give it a good facelift. I hope well have some funds left to extend it. A city news release said the breakwa ter system would make docking at the pier simpler and the dock would remain on the same level as the water regardless the tide. According to city documents, the de sign and construction process would take about 448 days for completion, which is estimated October 2019. Depending on contractor costs, Null said the city would also consider extending the oating dock and adding pillars. Gov. Rick Scott vetoed the appropria tion in 2017. However, Sen. Rob Bradley (R-Fleming Island) served as the appro priations chair during this years budget process and was instrumental in securing the money. We put in a request for several years and they gave us the request this year, Null said. Null said the oating dock was damaged during Hurricane Matthew but escaped the need for extensive repairs from Hurricane Irma a year later. It got worked over pretty good during Hurricane Matthew, we barely completed the repairs and opened it the day before Irma, Null said. The oating dock was beat up and it was loose, but we were able to come in and tighten everything back up, with some regular maintenance, we actu ally fared pretty well even though at times it was under three feet of water.

Steven Kelley, Brass Tacks Coffee own er and Green Cove Springs vice mayor, said he learned of the concept from Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels and sought opinions and input from rst responders about the coffees name and message. He felt sheepdog was apt, mentioning a popu lar poem among rst responders and mili tary members. The sheepdog poem for rst respond ers is kind of a universal thing talking about how sheepdogs are protectors and they run toward danger instead of away from it, Kelley said. Its a really cool thing. Concerns of Police Survivors, or C.O.P.S for short, has ve chapters in the state. Northeast Florida chapter founder Charles Shinholser said his organization serves 21 counties. His son Ray, who worked for the Jacksonville Sheriffs Of ce, was killed in 1988. C.O.P.S helps grieving families and coworkers of an of cer killed in the line of duty and hosts several camps and pays for retreats for grieving participants. We pay all of their expenses to go on a retreat. All of our programs are designed to help families with their lives, we dont ask them for anything, Shinholser said. Thats what C.O.P.S is all about. Shinholser said all the organizations money comes from donations and some from payroll deductions. He said C.O.P.S, which is ran by volunteers, spends more than $100,000 on survivors each year. For every bag of coffee sold, $2 will go to the Northeast Florida Chapter of C.O.P.S until the end of the year and $1 per bag after. Were doubling the benet because we hope to make an impact for the C.O.P.S and we really want to see it benet who we partner with, Kelley said. Kelley said he was proud of partner ing with C.O.P.S after he learned of their presence in Clay County assisting ofcers Coffee roaster creates a blend for rst responders and families. One of own police ofcers in town was own out to a retreat and counseling, and stuff like that, Kelley said. It was pretty special.

16 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 11, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfr rfn tfb f Dr. William P. Register First Assembly Fleming Island Faith Walk T his is a good time to reect on Gods giving. God is the greatest Giver! He proved it when He gave His Son for us. We are overowing with His gifts. In the best known of all the Psalms, the 23rd, the writer says, My cup runneth over. In the NLT version, it is stated this way: My cup overows with blessings. Overow speaks of the abundance of Overow His blessings. Blessings are overowing every container we have in our lives. We do not have enough room to contain all the favor that our Lord showers upon us. One of the greatest reasons God pours blessings upon us is for us to be able to bless others. God blesses us so we can share with others. The more we give to others the more room we have for God to continue to pour His blessings on us. In other words, if you keep all that God provides for you there will be no room for the Lord to give you more! This is the time for us to give as God gives to us. If we keep all God gives us, the con tent of our cup becomes stagnant. When we overow, all those around us are blessed. God blesses us so we can bless others! Our desire for the blessings of God should be so we can share the blessings. The more we give, the more God gives to us. Thats why God gives us an overow. Fill my cup, Lord, so I will have bless ings to distribute to others. My desire to receive is so that I can give! The more your cup is lled, the more you can do for God. If there is an overow in your own life, you have abundance to share and bless others. The more you give to others, the more God will give to you.

No travel trailers, campers or RVs are allowed. All district lands are wilder ness areas and as such, most properties offer no amenities such as rentals, rest rooms, potable water or shelters. There are also many rst come, rst serve camp sites that do not require a permit.

Nelson said she is honored that ATF recognizes the outstanding state and fed eral partnerships in the Jacksonville area and looks forward to working with the board. I am grateful to have been invited as one of the few prosecutors on this board and hope to share and collaborate with Tracy Drake Brandon Powell others who have experienced success elsewhere, said Nelson. With the com mitment of our law enforcement partners, the investment of our city leaders, and the State Attorneys Ofce commitment to da ta-driven approaches, this is yet another way that we hope to become a national leader in the use of technology, smart pros ecution practices, and enhanced state and federal partnerships in the ght against violent criminals.

Drinks are conned to the Shipyards location so there will not be any shopping and drinking throughout the mall. Shipyard Brewing Co.s selection includes an array of stouts, porters, IPAs, pale ales, avored ales and bar snacks. The venue will also offer a food menu of lighter fare it will prepare through a partnership with an area catering company. All of our beer that we dont get from Shipyard or Seadog [Shipyards sister brewery in Lake Buena Vista] will be from local breweries like Bold City, Green Room and Engine 15. Harris has experience as a bar trainer in Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville Beach. He said the experience suited him well for the new venture, and calls the bar in the mall a unique opportunity. This is the rst thing of its kind that I know of, Harris said. Honestly if this goes well, I think this will be implemented in a lot of other malls. Shoppers at Orange Park Mall, if they havent already, have a chance to learn about craft beer at the new Shipyards Brewing Co. kiosk that opened last week. This market is phenomenal for what were trying to do. Were located smack dab in the middle of the mall. We have local craft brew and stuff that you cant nd that often in Clay County. Nick Harris, Shipyards Managing Partner

GOT MUD? By Nick Blank Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS Thousands will ock to Vera Francis Park Saturday for food, entertainment, a parade and more on the 17th Annual Soul Food Festival, held from 12-7 p.m. Festival Coordinator Felecia Hamp shire said turnout was low last year, about 2,800 people, because of the Hurricane Irma. But she said the festi val has more than 50 vendors this year and she credited a staff of more than 30 volunteers for what she expects a record turnout. That was low for us, Hampshire said. This year, with the requests for vendors, it seems as if were probably going to hit record numbers again. This years entertainment includes rap act 69 Boyz, hailing from Jacksonville, who hit platinum album sales for their 1994 album, Quad and hit single Tootsee Roll. The festival also features the Special Formula Band, the 7th Street Band, singer Kia Uwanda, rapper Royale and a tribute to Aretha Franklin. We try to bring in well-known artists that generally brings a crowd, Hampshire said. Hampshire said the dance contests and the parade, featuring Mayor Connie Butler as grand marshal are other major draws. The parade begins at the adminis tration building on Palmetto Avenue and ends at Vera Francis Park. People from the community far and near get involved, Hampshire said. People love parades. They dont care how long or short they are, they love parades. Then theres the food. The festival will host barbecue ribs and sweet potato pie contests. Erich Mr. Pop Terry has been a xture at the festival for the past decade, cooking fried crabs, fried chicken wings, shrimp and sh. Terry, of St. Augustine, said he brings 300 pounds of food that is gone by the festivals conclusion. Whatever you bring you sell out, Terry said. Terry said the event had a great atmo sphere because it draws different people from different places. Its good for the whole family. You listen to a bit of music and its a good day of being out and enjoying yourself, Terry said. After the parade theres so many people. Youre like, Where are they com ing from? Theres not this many people in Green Cove. What I found out is, people come from all around, they graduate and come back home for that event. Thats what makes it a great event. Hampshire said this years theme is Heart to Soul. The cause for this years festival is heart disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. A portion of the festi CLAY TODAY FILE PHOTO In this shot from last year, Jacksonville restauranteur Isaac Hall works the smoker at the Soul Food Festival in Green Cove Springs. Halls aromatic meats drew patrons throughout the day who came to his tent, Good Food 247, seeking barbecued chicken and ribs. City is ready for some Soul Food vals proceeds will go to those in need who have heart disease. Theres a cause to what we do. We re alize we have to give back to our commu nity, Hampshire said. People are going to eat all the good stuff [Saturday] and thats OK. But we try to tell folks to minimize intake, do everything in moderation. People from the community far and near get involved. People love parades. They dont care how long or short they are, they love parades. Then theres the food. The festival will host barbecue ribs and sweet potato pie contests.

24 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 11, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfrrrrrrntb ntbfntrb bntbnntbrfnrtb By Wayne Hobbs Environmental Horticulture Agent W hile it may seem like summer is still here throughout much of our area, your lawn is slowing down for the season. Shorter days and cooler nights have stopped its grow ing and it will soon enter a dormant winter sleep. With this change, what do you need to keep it healthy over the next few months? Forget the Fertilizer At this point of the year, fertilizer should be the last thing you want to put on your lawn. As a solid rule, never apply nitrogen fertilizers to the lawn after mid-September as the grass will not use it and it will runoff into surface waters or leach down into the ground. You also risk bringing about a ush of new growth which can be more easily killed by frost. Wait until April 15 to apply anymore nitrogen, anything before then is a waste and can harm the environment. Limit your Irrigation When its not growing, your lawn does not need much water. Only water dur ing times of extended drought when leaf blades look silver or folded, this is a sign of wilt. Another characteristic of grass at this time is that footprints will persist for several moments after walking on it. When it is wilted, you can water but keep it to between one-half inch to three-quarters of an inch of water per application. However, remember that in the St. Johns River Water Management District, which covers Clay County, there are limi tations to irrigating during Daylight Saving Time. During Daylight Saving Time, homes with odd-numbered or no addresses can only water on Wednesdays and Saturdays from the second Sunday in March until the rst Sunday in November and, evennumbered homes can water on Thursdays and Sundays in the same period. During Eastern Standard Time, homes with oddnumbered or no addresses can only water on Saturdays from the rst Sunday in No vember until the second Sunday in March, while even-numbered homes can water on Sundays. No Mow? When the grass is dormant, mowing be comes much less frequent. Be sure to be mowing to the proper height for your turf grass species and only remove a maximum UF/IFAS PHOTO BY CAMILA GUILLEN Mowing may become less frequent this time of year, but proper turf care is still essential. Dealing with dormancy: turf in cool temperatures of one-third of the total leaf blade height each time you cut. This will save you some time in the yard and your grass will be less stressed. Weeds, Insects, and Diseases A group of annual weeds, such as an nual bluegrass, tend to show up in lawns soon and early to mid-October is the time to combat that with some pre-emergent fertilizer. These products put down a layer of herbicide to stop weeds from germi nating and are a great way to reduce the amount you have to treat the lawn through winter. Make sure to read the label of any pesticides or herbicides you use and follow the instructions exactly. Some good news for the lawn is that pests and diseases slow down in the cooler months. Through October, be on the look out for some fungal diseases such as takeall root rot but many issues will not reap pear until the spring. Brown is Normal One thing to remember is that once we get our rst frost or freeze, browning out your lawn is normal. This does not mean the grass is dead, but patience is needed once we warm up in the spring to give it time to grow back and recover. Do not water it heavily or fertilize early to spur on its growth. Just wait until the weather improves and your grass will be back to normal. If you want a green lawn in winter, con sider planting annual ryegrass now but this does mean you have to mow and care for the lawn more over the next few months.

At the Oct. 6 St. Johns River Athletic Conference championships, Fleming Island took one more step toward one of the best seasons in school history with a rst-ever conference title, rst, and, second, with a huge win over 7A-power Nease High. Its been all about the kids coming together as a unit, said Fleming Island coach Amy Walker, 20-2 and ranked sixth in Class 8A by Maxpreps, who has taken down all comers from class 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A and 8A to put together their win streak with the Nease win coming after an explo sive win over 4A state seminalist Provi dence (ranked sixth in 4A by Maxpreps) on October 2.

26 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 11, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Randy Lefko Sports Editor KEYSTONE HEIGHTS Keystone Heights High football coach Chuck Dickinson knew exactly what he had to do to offset the strong run game of visiting Crescent City High in their Oct. 5 clash. Keep the ball, said Dickinson. Run our ground game and dont let them get on the eld. They are explo sive. For nearly three and a half quar ters, the Dickinson proclamation was proving to be prophetic as the Indians employed the double battering ram power of ball carriers Ty Friedlin (108 Yds) and Nick Channell (75 Yds) behind the bulldozing of front liners Joey Bax ter, Dan Dodd and Josh Hughes. In the fourth quarter, score tied 1313, Keystone Heights had their rst slip of the night with Crescent City wide out Tyler Unruh snagging a come back pass and twisting away from two Keystone Heights defenders to sprint October 12 1A-Wildwood (4-3) at 4A-Keystone Heights (2-3) (Wildwood 28, KHHS 14) Keystone Heights comes o rugged fourth quarter loss to Crescent City. Key players have to heal up and be ready to go. Tough call. 7A-Oakleaf (4-2) at 4A-Raines (5-1) (Raines 26, OHS 12) Kicko moved to 6 p.m. Oakleaf chewing big chunks of season with rugged non-district schedule bent on preparing team for district run and region playos. Trinity Christian was able to throw on Knights defense. Raines is defending 4A champions with their own senior running back (Brandon Marshall) and two senior wide outs. Much like Oakleaf, big run game, pop in big passes. Another shootout possible. 5A-Ridgeview (3-4) at 5A-Clay (1-5) (CHS 32, RHS 27) Key district showdown. Clay is rested. Ridgeview is questioning from loss to Middleburg; Hu just 100 yards passing, three interceptions. Game is rivalry with a slim chance of playo implication. And, it is at Clay. Both are just outside the top eight in playo points rankings. 6A-Middleburg (2-4) at 6A-Nease (0-6) (Nease 24, MHS 33) Whoda thunk at 2-4 Middleburg could reverse slow start and get to playos again? Broncos thumped Ridgeview with aggressive pass defense. Joe Justino is getting better. Nease has had little scoring in their six losses; 6-5 loss to Matanzas? Really? Move up in district 4-6A possible for Broncos. With upsets (of sorts) over St. Augustine and in makeup game with Ed White, Broncos could sneak into playos. Stay tuned. Smeltzer did it once before. 5A-Orange Park (5-1) at 5A-Baker County (5-1) (Baker County 14, OPHS 10) Note: This game moved to Oct. 13 7 p.m. This could be game of the century in a very hostile Baker County environment with the coach implica tions (Macpherson red from Baker County three years ago). Orange Park is hungry to prove its mettle. This is the game for that. District 5-5A title on the line for both teams. Both are in top eight in playo power points also. 7A-Fleming Island (3-3) at 7A-Bartram Trail (4-2) (FIHS 18, BTHS 14) Fleming Island is dangerous and has shot their own foot in their losses this season with overtime loss to Buchholz, dropped passes against Oakleaf. Nows the time to put the four quarters together. McBride may be back in backeld and that will help. Fleming Island needs this and help for playos. Season nal against Orange Park (if 9-1) could be fateful. IND-SJCDS (2-4) at 2A-Oak Hall (3-3) (SJCDS 12, Oak Hall 10) Oak Hall is chasing top dog St. Joseph Academy in North Florida Football Standings. St. Johns has been playing outstanding ball with limited roster and could upset the apple cart with a win (upset of sorts) here. Chipoletti is squeezing as much Lemonade as seem ingly possible to put Spartans program in good stead. Spartans lost 41-13 to St. Joseph in Friday clash to give St. Joseph a berth in the North Florida Football Conference championship game. St. Johns got three turnovers against St. Joseph with a blocked kick also so the Spartans play true to form with outstanding eort for four quarters. With a win here, a probable win next week in Georgia, Chipoletti may get his .500 season. Final game with Aucilla Christian (6-1) will be tough sendo to season one. Go big or go home week with district lineups tightening up. Knights take on 4A state champion Raines in non-district biggie. Spartans catch histori cally strong Oak Hall on rebuild year. Macpherson gets shot at Baker County upset with holster full of weapons. Fleming Island faces the Bears jinx. Middle burg? What? Again, the Broncos can sneak in. In 5A, Ridgeview vs. Clay. Oh My!!

We did what we said we were going to do and ran the ball right at them. Just didnt put it in the end zone.

King, a Virginia Tech commitment, ran for 183 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries against a star-studded defense fo cused on stopping him. Keshawn was a champ. He ran as hard as he could all night, and he never wavered, said Oakleaf head coach Frank Garis. I was extremely proud of his ef fort. Conquerors running back Marcus Crowley, who is headed to the University of Miami next fall, matched Kings two scores and eclipsed him with an eyepopping 282 yards on 19 rushes. The pair treated an overow crowd to a display of power, speed and agility not often seen on a high school gridiron. Rarely did either back go down upon rst contact. King raised the hopes of black-andgold-clad partisans by staking Oakleaf to an 8-0 lead on a 24 yard run followed by a successful dive for a two-point conver sion. But after having forced a turnover on downs on the Conquerors rst pos session, the Knights lost their handle on the Trinity offense. The visitors scored on six consecutive possessions to turn the much-anticipated contest into a laugher. Crowley scored twice during the run on almost identical runs of 71 and 62 yards. Each time, the senior took a handoff over left guard, broke left upon crossing the line of scrimmage and outran the Oakleaf secondary up the sideline. After losing a yard on his rst carry, Crowley averaged 15.7 yards on his next 18 rushes. When the Oakleaf safeties crept up to ward the line of scrimmage to try to stop Crowley, the Conquerors Jacory Jordan and Isaiah Washington made them pay. Two plays after King gave Oakleaf its ear ly lead, Jordan hit Washington in stride at mideld. The 192-pound senior broke the grasp of 160-pound sophomore corner back K.J. Henry-Duncan at the 20 yard line and sped the rest of the way to com plete a 72 yard score. Washington bested Knights cornerback Donovan Thomas in the second quarter for touchdowns of 64 and 42 yards. Washington nished with 211 receiving yards on ve catches.

Jake [Bentley] was getting reps this week and I was getting reps this week, said Scarnecchia, who redshirted for a year with an injury. It was just being ready, because you never know what is go ing to happen. When it came to the decision, I was ready. Scarnecchia, named starter during the team warmups, calmly entered the game amidst the threat of thunder and lightning storms and methodically hit 20 of 35 passes for 249 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions and just two mishaps, according to most observers. Scarnecchia orchestrated a game-winning nal drive with just 1:18 left on the clock that set up 33 yard eld goal for the win. Scarnecchia hit a 27 yard pass to keep the drive moving. I was not nervous, said Scarnecchia, who had just 13 passing in his career prior to Missouri. I felt condent in my abili ties and how the coaches prepared me and the rest of the team, so I felt good with my game plan and everything. In the rst quarter, Scarnecchia answered Missouris rst touchdown of the game with a ve yard scoring pass on a 37 play drive to tie the game though Missouri scored again to go up 14-7. In the second quarter, Scarnecchia hit a 17 yard scoring pass on top of three Mis souri eld goals as the half ended at 23-14 for Missouri. In the third, Scarnecchia opend the scoring with an eight yard pass on a 66 yard drive that scored the game 23-21 before a South Carolina eld goal got the Gamecocks ahead 24-23 with 5:15 left in the third.

28 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 11, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM lockdown cornerback on the eld side for the Flames defense. The growth began last season as a junior and has carried over into the programs rst season at the Foot ball Bowl Subdivision level. I push myself to do the right thing ev ery day and day in and day out, Peters said earlier this week. When guys notice that, they have more respect for you. Ive been seeing that, especially this season. A lot of guys respect me more. Peters earned the respect of the coach ing staff before his sophomore season, when he was elected a team captain. He and Wells both were elected captains, but they decided to relinquish those spots in favor of older players. And Peters used that season to document and use as ex amples the things the leaders then did on and off the eld. It was denitely a tough decision then, he said of giving up the formal captain role, but it was probably the best one for me. The 5-foot-10, 195-pound senior was the only junior captain last season, when he continued developing his leadership skills while becoming the teams top cor nerback. The development came after a left ham string injury suffered against Virginia Tech derailed his sophomore season. In his return in 2017, he put on a stellar performance in the opener at Baylor, so lidifying his spot in the defensive backeld. Peters, who credited position coach Mar shall Roberts for his improved technique, completely shut down one side of the eld against the Bears and was not tested over the nal three quarters. He has done the same thing in his se nior campaign, with opposing teams learn ing quickly he can break up a pass or se cure a tackle to prevent a big play. North Texas, last weeks opponent, test ed Peters, and Rico Busseys rst-quarter catch on a sideline pass last week was one of the few completions Peters has allowed this season. With me, I hate when a receiver catch es a ball. I dont care if its a hitch, a slant or something, I hate when they catch a ball, Peters said. Thats one thing I dont like, but sometimes you will get beat or they will catch a ball, youve got to deal with it and move on to the next play. I make sure it doesnt happen again. Peters also takes pride in his tackling ability. He ranks second on the team with 13 solo tackles, is tied with Bejour Wilson for the team lead with three pass break ups, and he also forced his rst fumble last week against the Mean Green. He brings it every game and every game the team knows what theyre going to get out of No. 2, linebacker Solomon Ajayi said of Peters. They know that hes going to be really physical, hes going to be sound, technically sound and hes going to be a great leader on the eld and make sure everybody knows where theyre sup posed to be at. Peters learned from the upperclassmen over the past two seasons his voice would become dominant in the locker room once teammates saw the sacrices he was will ing to make for the team. True freshman JaVon Sruggs (Appomat tox) has said Peters has taken him in and taught him how to become a better corner back. Ajayi said everybody listens when Jeremy speaks, and several others have highlighted the things Peters does behind the scenes to ensure the program is in a better state than when he arrived. As a whole, its just the work that he brings to the team. Hes not a guy thats going to just vocalize a lot and just rahrah-rah talking, Wells said. Hes just a guy thats going to come in, do whatever the coaches tell him to do, and hes going to always compete and make the person next to him grind harder than they have.

Ally, a sophomore and a Clay Today offensive player of year, also returned two punts for 36 yards with a 26 yarder. Roberts, a redshirt freshman and a Clay Today defensive player of year, now has 29 tackles for the season for fth best on the Bulls defense. For USF, Cronkrite averaged 13.1 yards on 23 carries with touchdown runs of 77, 76 and 30 yards out in his third straight game rushing for at least 100 yards.

By Ray DiMonda Correspondent ORANGE PARK Middleburg High football was less than polite on the opening drive of the Panther homecoming festivities with an early 8-0 lead en route to a 22-13 win for the Broncos in an upset of sorts for the edgling Middleburg High program that has been struggling to get some traction on a season anticipating a few more wins. With Middleburg down to 30 players, 29 dressing out due to one injury, the team has dubbed itself the Dirty 30. That s just what we are, thats our style, said Middleburg High coach Karl Smeltzer, now at 2-4 overall. We are just now getting healthy. We ve played seven different line combinations in seven games. If we stay healthy up there, this can be our identity. We run the ball and that s who we are. The Broncos held Ridgeview scoreless in the rst half of the game, then came up with three fourth quarter interceptions of Ridgeview s Tyler Huff to squash any come back drive on their way to the 22-13 road win. On the Broncos rst possession, Pan ther linebacker Austin Childers collided with Bronco quarterback/punter Joe Jus tino to get a roughing the punter ag and infuse new life into the Middleburg offense. Justino responded by driving the Broncos 80 yards to paydirt in over six minutes with tailback Anthony Havens scoring and Justino running in for the extra two points.. There is more to come, said Havens on the Bronco turnaround. We ll wake them up. This team has put in a ton of work. If we play like we played tonight, we could go all the way. Ridgeview would only get as close as a Matt Koziolek eld goal attempt that sailed wide on the Panthers next drive. Justino revved up the Bronco offense again with a 32 yard scamper that got run ning back Tyler Bryant close enough for a two yard plunge and a 15-0 Bronco lead. It s an amazing feeling to see all that green ahead of you, said Justino. Havens would end the half with an in terception. An errant kickoff by Justino to open the second half set up a 60 yard scoring sprint from Ridgeview tailback Caleb Plyler as the Panthers looked to stop the bleeding quickly. An onside kick got the Panthers on the Broncos Dirty 30 spoil Panthers homecoming Bronco one yard line and a chance to tie the game in less than two minutes, but a botched center snap got scooped up by Bronco defensive end Justin Borchardt. Middleburg could not make any advance on the fumble recovery as both teams ex changed series into the third period. Plyler would get the nod again and score the game at 15-13 that seemed to put momentum on the homecoming side line, Ridgeview chose to go for a fourth and one at their own 29 yard line that Bronco linebacker Brody Senn intervened by nail ing Plyler for a two yard loss. From the Panther 28, Justino hit tight end Trevor Todd for 14 yards before op tioning himself into the end zone from nine yards out with 10:44 to go. Im just like thank you Joeperfect pass, said Todd. When you re in that situation, you need that rst down and Joe throws the comeback, it s just unguard able, you can t do anything with it. The rest of the fourth quarter was a Bronco highlight reel as Havens, Kevin Littles and Larry Stephens took turns in tercepting Huff with Littles getting the nal snag to seal the game with 44 seconds to go. Smeltzer capped the night by imploring his kids to give themselves some creditor for good effort. Ive been telling my kids to get out of your own way, said Smeltzer. Give your self a chance to succeed and you will. To night, we kept making mistakes, but got key turnovers to help ourselves nish this off. Ridgeview heads over to Clay for dis trict 5-5A clash that can put either team into the playoffs with a win while Middle burg heads to Nease High for a district 4-6A clash. Nease is also hosting their homecoming next week. The Middleburg vs. Ed White make-up game is moved to October 22nd.

Nease, currently ranked ninth in 7A by Maxpreps, was the district 3-7A champion and a region seminalist last year. We made a strategic move to stretch our blockers across the top of the net in stead of straight up to cut down the angle that Neases big hitters could get through said Walker. Rayna (Durden) and Miah (Pena) were strong in that nal game be cause we knew they were going to come at us with everything they had. Also at the SJRAC tournament, Middle burg, in district 3-7A with Nease, upset the much-anticipated clash of Fleming Island and BartramTrail in the nal with a rst round upset of the Bears behind strong play from hitters Mallory Roney and Jillian Bemis, who took on the Bears 6-6 inside hitting of senior Alexis Kuehl. When we play smart and aggressive, we are very good, said Middleburg coach Carrie Prewitt. We knew she was going to be formidable wherever she was and we had to go around her. Middleburg won the best of three match with a nal 15-11decider, but lost to Nease in the seminal to face and beat 6A-Pedro Menendez for third place. In the seventh place match, Orange Park, who opened with a loss to Nease and second round loss to Bartram Trail, n ished with a win over Matanzas. Our two main hitters have had shoul der problems as of late and we slipped a little, said Orange Park coach Katherine Ruelas. We hope to be strong to take on our district with Ridgeview staying unbeat en in district play. With district tournaments set to start Mon., Oct. 15, coach Walker is aiming for the district nal that has eluded the pow er-packed Golden Eagles lineup in recent years. With their most recent wins; a 3-1 win over 4A state runnerup Providence on Oc tober 2 followed by a 3-0 win over district 3-8As Fletcher High, the defending 3-8A Volleyball from page 25 champion and a rst round playoff loser to BartramTrail, Fleming Island (17-2, 6-2) moves into the nal week of regular season play with Keystone Heights, Ridgeview and Orange Park before district tournament play hosted by Bartram Trail High School. Also in district 4-8A, Oakleaf (7-15, 0-7) has had a slew of unfortunate injuries after a 4-1 season start and have lost their last 11 of 12 games. The Knights were ready for a turnaround season with wins over Baker County, Orange Park, St. Johns Country Day School and Keystone Heights before the losses started to pile up with wins over Maclay, Johns Creek and Man darin in the mix. Keystone Heights, in district 4-5A, is 14-7, 6-3 and sitting behind Newberry High, at 15-7, 10-0 in district play, and with a recent win over the Lady Indians. Taylor High, 20-4, but 3-3 in district play, looms as the threat to a Keystone Heights vs. Newberry nal as both teams have split in regular season play. Newberrys regular season losses have come to 7AGainesville, 8A-Fletcher, 5A-Bolles and 5A-Florida State University High (16-6). Newberry did win one game over Bolles at the Bolles Invite. Keystone Heights nishes with Inter lachen, Ridgeview and Fleming Island be fore the district 4-5A tournament; hosted by Interlachen High School. Ridgeview, the three-time defending district 4-6A champions under coach Des tiny Brightman, have won the right games to repeat that task with an 8-12 overall re cord, but 4-0 in district play with a strong 3-1 win over Baker County September 27. Brightman lost the services of two key players to a car accident, but both are recovered and expected to be full-go by district tournament time. A 3-0 loss to Stanton (16-2), whom Ridgeview has faced in the past three region openers and beaten, offers a readiness question, but nal games with Keystone Heights and at Fleming Island will certainly answer that readiness question. Also in district 4-6A, Orange Park sits in the third seed spot at 6-10, 1-1 with nal games against Clay and Fleming Is land. Orange Park does have a 2-1 win over Ridgeview in tournament which may be enough of a condence booster to be a surprise in the tournament. Ridgeview will host the district 4-6A tournament. In district 3-7A Middleburg, always in mix under long-time coach Carrie Prewitt, is at 10-9 with a 3-1 record against Nease High, the top squad at 16-8, 4-0. The home court advantage for the Lady Broncos could prove to be pivotal if the Bronco Gym rises to the occasion. Prewitt commented after a 3-0 win over Ridgeview last week, that her concern is not what other teams bring to the gym, but what her team does to not nish games. Nease knocked out Fletcher on October 1, but lost to Ponte Vedra, the 6A defending champion, on October 3 with a nal game October 8 against Bartram Trail. Middleburg, a after a rugged 3-2 loss to Nease at home on September 18, lost a tournament match, 2-1, against Nease at the Elise Bush Invite at Bolles on Septem ber 28 so there is some light for a district tournament nal for the Lady Broncos. Clay, in district 5-6A (5-13, 3-3), has stayed alive against two of the best area teams; Ponte Vedra (16-2, 9-0) and Menendez (15-5, 7-2), but both will offer tough play in tournament time. The Lady Blue Devils did knock off Ridgeview in Sep tember. Clay ends their regular season with Orange Park October 9. Menendez will host the district 5-6A tournament. In district 2-3A, St. Johns Country Day School will host the district tournament with the Lady Spartans staying within reach of the top two teams; defending 3A champion Christs Church Academy (16-5, 6-0) and Warner Christian Academy (11-5, 5-2) with Lady Spartans at 8-7, 4-2. Both of St. Johns district losses were to the top two teams with the Spartans taking on big ger schools such as 6A-Orange Park, 8AOakleaf and a nal district game against Christs Church on October 9. St. Johns nishes with Bishop Snyder (Oct. 10) and Bolles (Oct. 11).

Trinity Christian amassed 461 yards of total offense in the rst half, 236 on the ground and 225 through the air, taking a 42-15 lead at the intermission. Crowley had 212 of those rushing yards, while Jor dan completed seven of nine throws and threw for three touchdowns in the rst two quarters. While Jordan was dissecting the Knights secondary from a mostly comfort able pocket, the Trinity front seven con stantly harassed his counterpart, Knights quarterback Walter Tre Simmons III. The Conquerors brought Simmons down eight times, led by linebacker Jonathan Ealeys three sacks. We knew we had to stop number four [King] and then put pressure on the quar terback, said Trinity Christian head coach Verlon Dorminey. The Conquerors blitzed at least one linebacker in most passing situations, and the Knights could not block the extra rush ers in their spread formation. When Sim mons was not sacked, he threw on the run or was hit while he threw. The sophomore, who entered the game averaging 225 yards passing per game, was limited to 95 yards while completing eight of 21 attempts. They like to bring pressure. We knew that, said Garis. There were some situ ations where we knew Walter would have to stand in the pocket and take a hit, but make the throw. Safety Stephen Williams made the play that turned the momentum rmly in the Conquerors favor. Having led the Knights to the Trinity 16 yard line late in the rst quarter, Simmons moved up in the pocket and threw a pass over the middle. Williams stepped in front of intended receiver Sean Washington, intercepted the ball at the goal line, and returned the theft 21 yards. Two plays later, Crowley took off on his 71 yard run to give the Conquerors a 20-8 ad vantage. The lead grew from there. The game was the rst meeting be tween Trinity Christian, an undefeated rul ing Class 4A champion, against a Class 7A Oakleaf unit that had averaged 47 points per game while winning four of ve games. The crowd was treated to a full games worth of explosive plays in the rst half Knights from page 26 STAFF PHOTOS BY RANDY LEFKO Oakleaf middle linebacker Dexter Moore puts blitz on against Trinity Christian quarterback Jacory Jordan.

Knights split end Ter rance Anthony reached over a defenders back to snare a pass from Simmons in the end zone to breathe life back into the home side, cutting Oakleafs decit to 28-14 ear ly in the second quarter. The atmosphere was incredible, said Dorminey. Oakleaf is close by, and they are a good football team. They would make for a great rival. The second half was played at a slower pace. The Conquerors huddled between plays in order to milk the clock. Trinity defensive end Trevon McClain and tackle Latrell Wade sandwiched Simmons in the end zone for the Conquerors fourth safety of the season. King fought his way into the end zone off of right tackle for the rst offensive points of the half with 0:26 left in the third quarter to make the score 44-22. Jordan threw a touchdown pass to leaping Malik Myers in the nal stanza to close the scoring. Jordan, a sophomore, nished with 11 completions on 20 attempts, throwing for 293 yards and four touchdowns. The Con querors, now 7-0, entertain Westside in a District 4-5A game on October 12. Oakleafs Anthony had a team-high 64 receiving yards, while Sean Washington, coming off of a nine-catch, 192 yard per formance on September 28 at Fleming Is land, was limited to 13 yards on two recep tions. The Knights, who drop to 4-2, face an other defending state champion next week when they travel to Class 4A Jacksonville Raines.

We made some plays like this tonight; unfortunately just not enough of them, said St. Johns Country Day School coach Derek Chipoletti. Brady (Walden) makes plays for us all over the eld on both sides of the ball. The Flashes took less than two minutes to score on their rst possession with an 18 yard touchdown pass to freshman wide receiver Kent Hill by quarterback Dylan Thibault to take an early 7-0 lead. The Spartans had an early opportuni ty to immediately punch back and tie the game but a third down pass to wide receiv er Matthew Kelley who had no one in front of him was just over his ngertips. Instead of a potential tie game, the Spartans were forced to punt.

We were going to use whatever it took to get the ball downeld, said Dickinson. I needed to give my two guys a break with Sterling. At the seven, Channell channeled his inner missile to the four yard line where he dove and the ball popped out into the end zone. Standing nearby after nishing off his block, 6-4, 275 pound tackle Dan Dodd went horizontal on a diving snag of the loose ball to get a rare tackle touch down. A two-point conversion from Roberts gave the Indians a 13-6 lead as the fourth quarter was about to begin. Crescent City stalled at their 40 with Layton Murphy keeping the Crescent City backeld occupied for two tackles for loss. On their ensuing possession, Roberts pounded the edges of the Raider defense with three straight handoffs to the Cres cent City 37 where Stevens rolled right away from a dive handoff fake left and gained 13 yards before a holding ag cre ated a third and long situation that ended the drive with a punt.

We really wanted to establish the run game early tonight with what we run of fensively, but we just were not able to do that said rst year St. Johns head coach Derek Chipoletti. After another punt by the Spartans led to St. Joesphs driving deep into St. Johns territory, the Spartans Eli Morton nearly single handedly stopped the Flashes drive. On rst down, the senior tipped a pass at tempt by Thibault and, on second down, he sacked Thibault for an eight yard loss. The Flashes would attempt a eld goal on fourth down when Morton would get free and blocked the attempt to keep the Spartans within striking distance. Hes a heck of a football player. Ive coached 7A teams that went 10-0 and three rounds into the playoffs and he can absolutely play at that level said Chipo letti of Morton. Later in the half, the Flashes would fumble the ball away at their 28 yard line giving St. Johns a short eld to work with. Quarterback Tanner Walker would run 16 yards to the 12 yard line to set up a beautiful third down pass to Brady Walden in the corner of the end zone to put the Spartans on the scoreboard at 14-6 early in the second quarter. The Flashes would regroup offensively and add two more touchdowns to take a 28-6 lead. Late in the second quarter, the Flashes looked for a deep pass to add to their lead but Walker would intercept the pass with just seven seconds until the intermission.

The lone bright spot of the second half was a 70 yard touchdown pass to Max Arnold with 30 seconds remaining to end Spartans from page 33 St.Johns Country Day School wide receiver Matthew Kelley has 15 catches for 286 yards and three scores for Spartan oense. the game and a nal score of 41-13 in fa vor of the Flashes. The Spartans head coach is in his rst season and looking to build a win ning program takes two things: Effort and time. Numbers are also another challenge especially at a school known more for its swimming, soccer and baseball teams than football. We have to recruit the hallways and get as many kids out here as possible. Right now we have 17 players that we consistently play and and over half of those are going both ways. Thats around 120 plays per game so we do get fatigued late in games said Chipoletti. In practice I actually have to use some of my coaches as offensive lineman so we can get proper looks. The head coach has led schools with over 2,000 students, had a perfect regu lar season and gone three rounds deep in the state playoffs but this group has held a special place for him. I am more proud of this team than any other team I have ever coached. These guys play their hearts out every day. They play both sides of the ball and have to learn multiple positions which is not easy. I just have alot of respect for how hard they work for us he said. St. Johns Country Day School quarterback Max Monroe is equally adept on the run and passing for Spartans.

On a 3-2 majority vote, members of the council set the tentative millage rate to 3.6, the same it has been since the 2015 scal year, but not without a ght from council member Mitch Timberlake. Theres a signicant number of projects in and about the city that we keep pushing off and its going to affect us as the growth goes in around us in our inability to provide the infrastructure and support that will make this the attractive city that we want it to be,Ž Timberlake said. I have no problem explaining to the ratepayers in the City of Green Cove that were going to do things with that that weve been putting off for years.Ž Timberlake explained that the city has $700,000 in stormwater projects alone that would directly benet from the increase. He did note, however, that he didnt think he would get the 5-0 vote necessary for the one mil increase, so he would also settle for an increase to 4.2763, which would only require a 4-1 vote. To keep things at the 3.6 rate, the council would only need a majority vote. Before Timberlake made his argument for the increase, council member Van Royal led off the conversation, saying that city staff had prepared a good budget with the 3.6 millage rate in mind and that they wouldnt need more money from Green Cove citizens. I think that weve taken some great steps in the last couple of years,Ž Royal said. Weve looked at capital SEE TAXES, 18 Subscription Special and school fundraiser ATTENTION CLAY COUNTY PARENTSSubscribe to the Clay Today for one year at $34 and $10 will go back to your childs school!
