By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS With less than two weeks until the Nov. 6 general elec tion, a local school board candidate has led a suit against her opponent seeking her removal from the ballot. Incumbent Ashley Gilhousen, who represents District 5 on the Clay County School Board, accused her opponent Lynn Chafee last week of failing to properly qualify as a District 5 school board seat candidate. The suit led Oct. 23 claims Chafee was not a resident of District 5 at the time of qualifying and because of that, is asking a circuit court judge to remove Chafees name from the ballot. However, at the same time, Clay County Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless, said based on the documents Chafee led for her can didacy, Chafee is a resident of District 5. After further review, Supervisor Chambless has conrmed that the docu ments that Chafee led were properly completed and her voter registration address on le does fall within the District 5 boundaries, according to an ofcial statement released by the Supervisor of Elections ofce on Oct. 17. However, whether Chafee legally resides at that residency is out of his purview. By Wesley LeBlanc Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS The Clay County School Board will soon have discussions surrounding a new school board attor ney.

The suit led by Gilhousen against both Chambless and Chafee claims Chafee does own a house in District 5 but, it was not the home she was residing in at the time of qualication. Instead, Gilhousen claims Chafee was living in a Fleming Island house at the time of qualifying. Under Florida law, a candidates primary residence must fall within the district boundaries at the time of qualication. Its this statute that Gilhousens case stands on. I own three homes and my legal resi dence is my home in Green Cove Springs and it was at the time of qualifying, Chafee said. Chafee said she has been at the Flem ing Island home lately because she is about to put it on the market. Because of that, she is there often to clean and clear it out. Chafee describes the lawsuit as a distracting scare tactic by Gilhousen and her team. She said it nothing more than a cheap trick. I havent done anything wrong and I hope the voters can see through this cheap trick, Chafee said. Its desperate and dirty tactics from my opponent and I hope people can see the attack for what it is. Gilhousen, on the other hand, said it is neither a distraction technique nor a scare tactic. Instead, she said its an oath she swore as a school board member that compelled her to le the suit. Its important to me that we respect the rule of law, Gilhousen said. As an elected ofcial, I swore an oath that I would uphold the Constitution of the State of Florida and the United States of America, and I feel that Im duly bound by that law. My commitment to the voters of Clay County is that I will do everything I can to ensure the integrity of our political process to ensure our laws are upheld. While Gilhousen acknowledged how late in the race this lawsuit has come, she said it was because it was only recently brought to her attention, in late Sep tember, that Chafee was not a District 5 resident. If it was brought to my attention months ago, all of this would have hap pened months ago, Gilhousen said. Chafee said its worrisome and scary that somebody has been following her around, photographing her. While Gilhousens team ensured this claim made its way to the Supervisor of Elections, she never expected Chambless and his staff to investigate the issue. Just to be very clear, I never asked the Supervisor of Elections ofce to do an investigation because I know that it is not within his purview to do so, Gilhousen said. There are statutory limitations and because of those, it would not be a legal thing for him to do or engage in, so I never made that request of him. Now, like Chafee, Chambless is being sued by Gilhousen although according to the ofcial ling, Chambless name is at tached in ofcial capacity only. Defendant Chambless is the constitu tional ofcer charged with administering elections within Clay County, Florida and is a necessary and indispensable party for the purposes of the relief sought by this action, the lawsuit reads. The lawsuit asks that the court order Chambless to de-certify Chafee and remove her name from the ballot as a candidate. However, voters already are casting mail-in ballots and it is unclear whether a judge will hear the case before Nov. 6. Gilhousen said she could not speak on that matter and what that means for the election. Chambless said if a court orders a candidates name off a ballot after ballots have already been printed, but before the election is over, typically, the Supervisor of Elections ofce would attempt to sup press the results. This means that mail-in ballots would go out to voters with a memo to explain a candidate on the ballot has been removed by court order. At vot ing booths, voters would see a notice that explains this as well. Gilhousen led the lawsuit with Jack sonville attorney Paul Renner, who also serves as a member of the Florida House of Representatives. Chafee has not yet re quested the services of a lawyer, though. At this point, I have only heard through word of mouth that Im being sued, Chafee said. I havent received anything to that effect so if and when that occurs, then Ill take whatever steps my self and my advisor feel is appropriate. Gilhousen said she hoped Chafee would have withdrawn from the race and eliminated the need for attorneys and court. My hope was that once she became aware, she would do the right thing and remove herself from the ballot, Gilhousen said. Im disappointed that hasnt happened yet. Chafee said she has no plans to with draw herself from the ballot. Ballots are already out and this elec tion, like my race, is moving forward, Chafee said. Chafee is in a runoff with Gilhousen after neither candidate received 50 per cent of the vote plus one vote to win. Their opponent Travis Christensen has thrown his support behind Chafee. Election from page 1 By Nick Blank Staff Writer ORANGE PARK Clay Countys ve consti tutional ofcers spoke to about 50 people at St. Johns River State College last week and addressed the 12 amendments on the Nov. 6 ballot. Coming in with 56 percent undecided in statewide polls, Amendment 10 cap tured the most discussion. If approved, the amendment would make the positions of tax collector, sheriff, property appraiser, clerk of court and supervisor of elections elected. All ve positions are currently elected ofces, but thats not the case for all Florida counties. STAFF PHOTO BY NICK BLANK From left, Chris Chambless, supervisor of elections, Tara S. Green, clerk of court, Darryl Daniels, sheri, Jimmy Weeks, tax collector, and Roger Suggs, property appraiser, discussed state constitutional amendments and county charter amendments at an Oct. 18 at St. Johns River State Colleges Orange Park campus. Forum addresses state, local amendments Clay County Clerk of Court Tara Green said the constitutional ofcers acted as checks and balances. So, [constitutional ofcers] are elect ed by the 155,000 registered voters vs. maybe ve people on a county commission or a county manager or mayor, Green ad dressed the audience. [Amendment 10] ensures you guys the right to elect those individuals in these ve positions. Property Appraiser Roger Suggs said since his ofce evaluates a propertys tax able value and the county sets the millage rate, it was critical the two processes were independent of each other. A vote yes on Amendment 10 guar antees your right as a registered voter to always be able to select your ve constitu tional ofcers in the future, Suggs said. It also guarantees those ve constitutional ofcers will be able to administer their du ties independently and without any inu ence of another government agency. Amendment 10 is a bundled amend ment in that it also calls for creating a state counter-terrorism agency, requires the state Legislature begin its annual session in January instead of March on even-numbered election years and alters language securing the states Department of Veterans Affairs, essential changing wordage from ...the state may have VA, to Shall have a VA. This new language will not only retain it, but it makes it a mandate, Sheriff Dar ryl Daniels said. Critics of Amendment 10, including the Florida League of Women Voters say as written, it would take power away from lo cal government. Opponents also claimed the new VA and counterterrorism language SEE AMENDMENTS, 6

While simply reading through the text book might work for some, sixth grade science teacher Julie Killian prefers to get her students more involved. Weeks of research, design and following detailed in structions all came together Oct. 18 when science classes held balloon races. To be exact, students built cars that were then powered by balloons to learn hands-on how energy, force and motion all work to gether to make an object move. This is a very educational way to teach them about kinetic and potential energy because its applied right in front of their eyes, Killian said. It helps them see how these things work in real life. While this isnt the rst time Killian has hosted a balloon-powered car competition in her ve-year career, its no less exciting. For her, its seeing the kids put what they learn into action and the excitement that comes with it that keeps this competition a staple at Paterson. Each student was required with cre ating a race car powered by at least one 9-inch balloon. While they were allowed to use the internet for race car inspiration, Killian encouraged them to come up with their own design. If a race car was unique enough, it earned the student a few bonus points. No matter how unique though, the car had to Not your grandfathers balloon races STAFF PHOTOS BY WELSEY LEBLANC Race cars of all shapes, sizes and colors took to the stage last week at Paterson Elementary.

4 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 25, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Eric Cravey I think the year was 2006. My wife, son and I boarded a plane to go to our nephews wedding in An napolis, Maryland. And although he wasnt crying or misbehaving otherwise, I could see a bit of anxi ety ying about on our sons young face. And because he and I had had a prior conversation, I tried to do some thing special to help calm his fears. So, when we boarded, I made a point to sneakily tell the head ight attendant that this was his rst ight. After getting the plane up in the air and before it was time to pass out snacks, the surprise unfolded. The captain announced the name of all the rst-time yers just the little kids over the public-address system, while the ight attendants went around and pinned wings on each little pas senger. I could see the smile on my sons face dissolve any anxiety he felt previ ously. Last Saturday, I could relate a bit to my sons trepidation, however, I was not going to let anyone see it on my face. Or, so I thought. After hopping in the seat of the single-engine plane, we strapped in, secured the top and sat on the grassy runway at Haller Airpark awaiting our turn to take off. Upon takeoff, we cleared the trees and headed south of Green Cove Springs. My pilot, Joe Tierney, presi dent of the Experimental Aircraft Asso ciation, looked over and asked, Are you doing, OK? (See how he busted me?) I said, Yeah, yeah, as I took a break from wondering at all of the stands of pines below us. It looked like pines for miles and miles. The plane tilted to the left and Joe said we were going to take a turn and head north now. All I could do is stare out of the window. Is that St. Johns County, over there? I asked as we coasted above the river and headed to Green Cove Springs. We were about 800 feet high and we traveled about 200 miles per hour in his plane he built himself using a kit. He said he invested about $70,000 in the aircraft, but on the retail market, the same plane would cost as much as $500,000. The air was crisp and the sky clear what some call chamber of commerce weather. One glance to our left and we could T here is one easy choice on the bal lot this year a choice that has bi partisan support across the state: Amendment 10, the Protection Amend ment. Having so many decisions on the long ballot this year can make the voting process more burdensome than usual, but a yes vote on Amendment 10 is an easy choice. Amendment 10 does four impor tant things, without growing government or increasing taxes: l Protects your right to vote by en suring that your sheriff, clerk of the court, property ap praiser, tax collec tor and supervisor of elections are elected by you, not appointed by the county. l Protects our veterans by preserving the structure and governance of the Flor ida Department of Veterans Affairs to en sure Floridas military members are cared for after their service to our country. l Protects your tax dollars through improving state and county budgeting by starting legislative session two months earlier in even-numbered years. l Protects our families from acts of ter rorism by creating the Ofce of Domestic Security and Counterterrorism within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Sadly, our Florida neighbors in some counties have been stripped of their right to vote for their constitutional ofcers. Amendment 10 guarantees this would never happen again in any county. To best serve you, your elected constitutional of cers must have an independent perspec tive, free from undue inuence of appoint ed ofcials. Amendment 10 is about good govern ment, accountability, transparency and the importance of separation of powers. These are the foundations of our freedom. Consider this: l Floridas sheriffs are law enforce ment professionals united in protecting Floridas citizens and visitors. Remarkably, Floridas crime rate is at a 47-year low. In Clay County, Sheriff Darryl Daniels leads an agency striving daily to reduce crime and increase community engagement in a county that is now home to more than 209,000 residents.

Joey carried a dictionary with him everywhere hoping people would think he was intelligent. I also thought about Thunderbolt and how Fleming Islands growth in the 1990s exploded to a point the island grew to need three elementary schools.

Flying from page 4 see all of the landmark buildings in the city as we headed north towards Fleming Island. The pace was a good and steady clip. Joe said, that after a while, you get used to the bumps and bounces a small aircraft like his often takes. I truly thought it was because Id gained a little weight. From our fast-moving perch, I could identify Thunderbolt Elementary School, and other landmarks. Yet each time I saw a pine, I couldnt help but think how this county is about to experience tremendous change. I saw U.S. Highway 17 and reveled in how it looked like a ribbon with a green stripe down the middle as I viewed it from above and how it has grown over the years from a two-lane road to the six-lane thoroughfare it is today. That road is an other visible result of how growth changes not only the look, but the attitude of a community. I also thought about Thunderbolt and how Fleming Islands growth in the 1990s exploded to a point the island grew to need three elementary schools. From my perch I could also see acres and acres of cleared pine stands that are getting ready to make way for new housing developments and even more are coming. And with them, come new schools and new roads. And yet, more growth is com ing. The question now becomes, how are you going to get involved to have a genuine conversation about how things such as roads and schools get properly funded in the coming years? Will it be a discussion in Tallahas see, Green Cove Springs or Fleming Island? Either way, those conversations just may take away some anxiety that might appear on some faces. Wendell Davis

Suggs noted two other bundled amend ments Amendment 6 and Amendment 9. Amendment 6 increases the retirement age ofjudges from 70 to 75 and includes Marsys Law, a victims rights provision. Amendment 9 prohibits offshore oil and gas drilling and vaping in workplaces. Obviously those are two similar things, Suggs said to laughs from the audience. The panel also addressed the county-specic amendments added by the county commission and charter review commission. One amendment would set term limits on constitutional ofcers to three fouryear terms, which wouldnt take effect until 2032. Tax Collector Jimmy Weeks and Green said there was a wealth of knowledge in constitutional ofces. Were policy makers. Were adminis ters of the law, not ministers of the law, Green said. One other county in state of Florida I know of that implements term limits on constitutional ofcers, but the other 66 counties like the way it works. One amendment would increase com missioner salaries substantially based on an economic development review and population over four years. Another amendment would increase the county commissioners consecutive four-year terms from two to three, but permanently cap commissioners to three terms. [Currently] An individual could complete those two terms, take a term off and then come back and be re-elected, Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless said. Student Brittany Lassiter, 24, asked the panel questions about lobbying in Tallahassee. She said the panel was excel lent because she learned more about the amendments. I think this was a great opportunity to come out to honestly learn more on what were voting on, Lassiter said. Youve seen through social media about whats going, but thats not whats really going on. Attendee Samuel Edwards, 22, raised concerns about Amendment 1. He said, he learned at SJR State how much local governments rely on ad valorem taxes. Amendment 1 would raise the value of homestead property tax exemption to $100,000-$125,000 and increase the maximum exemption to $75,000. Based on current assessed values, Suggs noted the county could lose about $6 million a year, while saving eligible homeowners about $200-$400. Learning that theres going to be more exemptions, that going to be a lot less money they collect from ad valorem taxes, Edwards said. I dont think people quite understand how important taxes are for the services we use.

8 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 25, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM rfn ntn br rt n ntbt b t nbbbrt By Nick Blank Staff Writer GREEN COVE SPRINGS The Council on Aging of Clay County is turning to a famil iar face on an interim basis to oversee its transportation losses of about $17,000 a month. Renee Knight, the Councils executor director from 2001-2007, started last Fri day. She is currently ElderSources Di rector of Community Services. I will do my best to give you all and the Council on Aging the most informa tion and try my best to make this work for our seniors, Knight said On Knights end, she said the council was attempting to evaluate scaling back the organizations ex line and the councils contracts with the Jacksonville Transportation Author ity and Department of Transportation contracts, who assist with funding some routes. The Council on Agings Board President John Bowles told county commissioners at the Oct. 23 BCC meeting that Knight was more than capable for the job. The board terminated the contract of for mer Executive Director Al Rizer last week. If anybody understands our community, our agencys mission and our business operation, its Renee. We are delighted to have her on board, Bowles said. Shes going to provide our orga nization with the expertise and sup port we need in this time of transition. County Auditor Mike Price gave commis sioners a breakdown of money the Council needs to keep transportation aoat while developing a plan of controlled phasing out of ex lines over a six-month period. Price said the council needs $20,000 a month and $25,000 for fuel. In addition, he asked commissioners to forgive $165,893 in fuel and maintenance costs. With their cash position currently, I dont think the board stands that much a chance of earning those monies anyway, so this basically represents a recognition of reality, Price said. Commissioners agreed to provide the $45,000 for operating expenses and fuel and vehicle maintenance for November. CCOA Board Vice President and for mer Clay County Commissioners Wendell Davis said the council was in the process of untangling a spider-web. But with the county, council and ElderSource meeting weekly, he said they would work for the next 30 days to develop a six-month plan and assess ex lines and contracts thor oughly. In 30 days, we may not have all the answers, or have it solved. But we will cer tainly talk more intelligently, Davis said. County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos, the former state Department of Transpor tation secretary, said ofcials would meet with Florida Commission for the Transpor tation Disadvantaged. They understand what position were in and they understand what the goal is, Kopelousos said. I think theyre going to help us get to that point we need to get to. Commissioners agreed to a funding agreement with the Council, with the un derstanding there would be amendments based on future meetings of the agencies. Commissioners Wayne Bolla and Mike Cel la said cutting senior services was out of the question, but a concrete plan to curb transportation losses was imminent. Price added the Teal Line which serves the Keystone Heights area had about a $76,000 net loss per year and the Magenta Line had near $98,000 in losses. When commissioners asked Price how the problem started, he said management turnover combined with a decline in ex line revenue led to the perilous nancial situation. Mostly you have ex line revenue that isnt sufcient to cover ex line costs, Price said. In every other activity, theyve got theyre covering their costs. Fix in the works for Council on Aging money woes Renee Knight If anybody understands our community, our agencys mission and our business operation, its Renee. We are delighted to have her on board. Shes going to provide our organization with the expertise and support we need in this time of transition. Shes going to provide our organization with the exper tise and support we need in this time of transition. John Bowles

She is super loving and alert. She is a tiny bundle of love. Darla is truly a blessing and will ll your home with an abundance of cuddles and kisses. PEPPER Pepper is an adorable 5 month old kitten. She is a black and white domestic short-haired kitten. She is shy and reserved. Pepper is very loving and cuddly to her humans and needs someone who will give her the attention she needs to come out of her shell. Races from page 3 move off the force of a blown-up balloon, had to roll on at least three wheels and must have been made using exclusively re cyclable materials found around the house. While these rules sounds strict, it didnt stop students from coming up with some pretty unique race cars. One student, So phia Zhao, 11, built one of the biggest cars in the race, so big that she didnt even call it a car. Its a bus, Zhao said. Its made of in dex cards and cardboard, and the wheels are made of container lids. It looks really awesome, but it didnt really do too well. It only went a fraction of a centimeter. While Killian encouraged students to make their car unique, she also stressed that function should come before fashion. Sometimes they spend so much time making the car look great that they forget it also needs to work, Killian said. The main goal is to create the fastest car, but the student will lose or gain points based not only on speed, but distance, orig inality and appearance as well. After all of the races, the top two from each class were determined. Those two will compete in a grand nale of sorts at the end of the school year against the other top two from each class. The rst-place winner for Killians last science class of the day, Jil lian McKinney, 11, was surprised her car got rst place. I didnt think mine would be rst place, but Im excited it did, McKinney said. McKinneys car had a leg up in the race in that she worked off the blueprint of her 9th grade brothers design. Like McKinney, her brother made a balloon-powered race car when he was in sixth grade. Accord ing to McKinney, her brothers did pretty well so she used a similar design. Natural ly though, McKinney added her own air: rainbows. After the race, each student was re quired to graph how their car performed and complete a four-page report detail ing the materials used, the procedure to build the car, an analysis of how energy, motion and forces applied to the car and a reection on the unit. This report is just as important as the race car itself, with each aspect accounting for 50 percent of the projects grade. STAFF PHOTO BY WESLEY LEBLANC Sixth graders use sharp-focused eyes after blowing up their race cars balloons Oct. 18 in the Paterson Elementary cafetorium. Its a bus. Its made of index cards and cardboard, and the wheels are made of container lids. It looks really awesome, but it didnt really do too well. It only went a fraction of a centimeter. Sophia Zhao, 6th grade By Bradley Burbaugh, Ph.D. UF/IFAS Extension I teach monthly leader development classes, and, in these classes, Im often asked what is one factor that distinguish es good leaders from great lead ers? And like any good academic my answer is it de pends! When par ticipants dont like that answer and force me to re spond my answer is vision. Being able to commu nicate a compel ling vision is a dening characteristic of great leaders. Consider the critical role vision has played throughout history in the success of leaders like Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Jeff Bezos and many others. Each of these leaders shared a clear and compelling vision with their followers. Without a compelling vision, people are not moved to follow a leader, and if the quality of a leaders vision is inadequate people will be reluctant to follow. I recently polled attendees in one of my leader development classes and less than 20 percent could identify the vision for their team. I realized leaders recog nize the importance of vision they just dont know how to develop one. So here goes. Do you want to be a great leader? If so, the following questions can help guide the development of your vision. Q1. Why does our team exist and why is it important? The keyword in this question is why every leader knows what their team does, but its harder to articulate why they do it. I encourage you to web search Start with Why and watch the video by Simon Sinek. He explains that individuals are not compelled to join a cause when you explain what you do; the more compelling approach is to explain why you do it. The video has some great examples of highly successful compa nies that use this approach. Q2. Over the long-term (5-10 years), what do we hope to accomplish? What difference do we want to make? When answering these questions, think about your team in the future. If they are consistently fullling their purpose with excellence, what images do you see? What ideas come to mind? Once you have that image in your mind the next question becomes: what are the stories I might tell around those ideas and images that explain my vision? Q3. What are two goals my team has for the next year? These goals are the action steps the team needs to take over the next 6-12 months to help accomplish the longerterm vision. Answering this question helps a leader align the team with the vision and can help guide the communi cation of expectations. So, if you have followed me, you should now realize creating a compel ling vision requires an appeal to the bet ter angels of our nature (Q1), it is part storytelling (Q2), and it involves some strategic thinking (Q3). In more practi cal terms, answering these questions can help you identify the purpose/mis sion of your team, the team vision and team goals. From my experience, people dont follow leaders with fancy titles and au thority. They follow ordinary folks who can create a compelling vision of the fu ture. I hope you will use these guiding questions to clearly dene where your team is going and how they are going to get there. n If you would like your employees, teams, or students to participate in my leader development trainings contact me, Brad Burbaugh, at the UF/IFAS Extension Ofce at (904) 284-6355 or brad784@u.edu for more information. Vision is the secret to success Bradley Burbaugh

USDA warned of contaminated corn in Marketside Fiesta Salad with Steak. The product came in clear clamshell packag ing produced from Oct.11-14, with a use by date of Oct.17-20. The salads shipped to Walmart, Trader Joes and Whole Foods in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. GHSE LLC, a Green Cove Springsbased arm of Santa Paula, Calif.-based Calavo Growers. Calavo began operations, primarily avocados, in the former 800,000 square foot Food Lion facility three years ago. The problem was discovered on Oct. 15, 2018 when GHSE, LLC received noti cation that the corn used in the produc tion of their ready-to-eat salad product was being recalled by their corn supplier due to Listeria monocytogenes and Salmo nella concerns, the USDA said. Products recalled have the establish ment number, EST. 45781 inside the USDA mark of inspection. Citing a high health risk, the recall was issued Class I status, meaning there is a chance consumption of the prod uct may cause serious, adverse health consequences or death, according to the agencys website. At presstime, there were no conrmed cases of salmonella or listeria monocy togenes related to the salads so far. The USDA said it urged people who consumed the product to contact a healthcare pro vider. Salmonellosis is a common bacterial foodborne illness usually lasting four days to a week. Most people recover without treatment, according to the USDA, though some may need hospitalization. Within 12 to 72 hours, symptoms include abdominal cramps, fever and diarrhea after eating a contaminated product. Eating food with listeria monocytogenes bacteria could cause listeriosis, an infec tion affecting weak immune systems, preg nant women, newborns and older adults. The release said its uncommon the bacteria affects people outside those three groups, but fever, muscle aches, headaches, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diar rhea or other gastrointestinal effects are potential symptoms. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience u-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell their healthcare provider about eating the contaminated food, the USDA release said. Salad recalled due to salmonella fears

The event distributed more than 40,000 books 33,222 pounds to students via Clay County Education Associations part nership with Washington, D.C.-based non prot First Book and the American Federa tion for Teachers for the second year in a row. Megan and Greg Roach brought their four children to the event. As their son Landon, a Plantation Oaks fth grader, was nearing the 10-book limit. Megan Roach said the selection of books was great. I think its awesome for the kids and the community, she said. Something we talked about before we came was, Are they going to be good books? But they have tons of chapter books for the older kids. Monique Summers brought her three children. Oakleaf Junior High eighthgrader Keilan Summers said he will read anything by Rick Riordan, author of the modern Greek-mythology fantasy series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Kennedi Summers, a Plantation Oaks rst grader, held up various books about superheroes and Eric Carles 1997 book, From Head to Toe. (The event) teaches kids that learning is fun, Monique Summers said. The kids get to pick out whatever they want to pick out, and it encourages them to read, which is amazing. Volunteers hovered around the line and carried water bottles on wagons. Waiting in line with an umbrella over her one-year-old son, Maren Garner stood with her daugh ters Chloe, an eighth grader at Lake As bury Junior High, and Rachel, enrolled in pre-kindergarten. Chloe Garner said Harry Potter was her favorite book series and the opportunity for free books was exciting. My kids love to read, Maren Garner said. We thought free books would be a great opportunity. This year, children were limited to 10 books and needed to be accompanied by a parent. CCEA President Renna Lee Paiva credited a cadre of 50 people with orga nizing the book giveaway all-day Friday. The books came unsorted in the truck, Paiva said with an exasperated laugh. First Book event deemed success by many The quality of the books was better even [though they came unsorted], but we would get 200 of the same kind [last year], Paiva said. So now we had to buy three more tarps because the variety is so good, but it took a long time to set it up.

Clay County School District Superinten dent Addison Davis praised Paivas vision for securing the event for the second year running. For her to bring this initiative for a second time is really important to us. Not many counties throughout the state have that availability to bring it here, Davis said. Learning takes place at home. If we can get parents and family members, who are the most important educators, an opportunity to give resources to our kids, it will help them inside the class rooms. E.J. Skippers, a Coppergate Elemen tary third grader, said his favorite books were Jeff Kinneys, Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I like how he made books about his life, Skippers said. His father Ezra Skippers, who heard about the event online, said it is impor tant to read to children early and create good habits. Its very important for the kids so they can learn. Its awesome theres 40,000 books to give away to the fami lies, Ezra Skippers said. When youre at home, you need to instill things like read ing and similar stuff like that because when theyre at school they might not have a lot of time for it. My kids love to read. We thought free books would be a great opportunity. Maren Garner

Private school adds new faculty ORANGE PARK Seven Bridges School recently expanded its faculty by welcom ing four new teachers for the 2018-19 aca demic year. The faculty members, who ar rived on campus in mid-August for training and meetings before the start of the new school year, will be teaching in the lower division classes and in the foreign lan guage department. With more than 15 years experience as an educator, Patricia Fisher joined the lower division facul ty as a Third/Fourth Grade teacher. She is a returning alumni teacher at Seven Bridges School. Our job as teachers is to help children in any way we can to develop their full potential. Every child has the capacity to learn. Each child comes with his or her unique learning style. Given the opportunity to develop, they will succeed, Fisher said. Also joining the lower division is Ken dra P. Slinker, who has been teaching for over 15 years. She teaches a K-2 grade class. Learning is a personal journey that is realized in a safe environment free from stress and anxiety. In short, my philosophy of teach ing is through equal amounts of love and logic. With these two in abundance, stu dents will achieve their maximum potential, Slinker said. Michael Joseph Rivas also joined the lower division as a Fifth/Sixth grade teach er. Rivas believes an educator is always learning. He has taught for six years, and frequently researches modern techniques and projects to incorporate into the class room. Allen Kurt McCall joined the faculty to teach classes in lower and upper divi sions in drama, humanities, speech, music and physical educa tion. My goal at Sev en Bridges School is to teach the whole individual, i.e., the cognitive, the physi cal, and behavioral dimensions of each individual, McCall said. The Foreign Lan guage Department welcomes Wanda Ro driguez, as the new Spanish teacher. She previously worked as an English teacher for Our Lady of Carmel Catholic School in Maryland, in addition she is a Title One Resource and Collaborative teacher for LD Students.

Mulcahy joined the Math De partment in the upper division and teaches algebra, geometry/advanced topics, sev enth and eighth grade math. He brings with him over 30 years of experi ence working in the elds health care and education. Teaching is a collaborative pro cess. No single strategy works in every situation.

16 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 25, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM vote by the school board, in which board members Janice Kerekes and Chairman Carol Studdard dissented, DAgata has ac cepted a position as deputy general coun sel with the Florida DOE in Tallahassee. Reaching the decision to resign was incredibly difcult for me, as my tenure fortuitously coincided with an era of dra matic growth and improvement seldom seen by public school districts in our state, and even our country, DAgata wrote in his resignation letter. I take tremendous pride in having played a role albeit a mi nor one assisting the Board, the Super intendent and his Cabinet Members, and so many gifted personnel throughout our District in such achievements for the good of Clay County students and the community at large. DAgata was originally attracted to the job hes leaving after learning Davis was elected to lead over the district in 2016. According to DAgata, he had worked tan gentially with Davis in the past and en joyed doing so, so when he learned Davis was elected, he applied for the position in Green Cove Springs. Now, after 18 months, hes moving on, but he said hell always be available for advice to the board. DAgata also told the board during the Oct. 23 School Board Agenda Review Workshop that the board will have a good friend in the DOE now. While hes served as the attorney for the Clay County School Board for about 18 months, Clay County was not where he fell in love with education. DAgata began his career as a classroom teacher more than a dozen years ago. I was an educator before I was a lawyer, DAgata said. I was a teacher. I got my Ph.D [a doctorate in education] while in my second year of law school. DAgata said it was his time as an educa tor that inspired him to practice law in the eld of education. Today, he has 15 years of law practice under his belt, with many of those years devoted to education. Davis, like the rest of the school board, said he was sad to see DAgata go but hap py about the work he did for the district during his tenure. Im thankful for the last two years of work DAgata has done for this board, Da vis said. Its not easy being in that posi tion, but he did great things for us and with us. Looking forward, the school board is now tasked with hiring a new attorney and they must do so fast as DAgatas last day is Dec. 21. We have to try to gure out the best way for Clay County because every county is different and I want to get the best legal service I can get for the least amount of money, Studdard said. Because the Oct. 23 meeting was only a workshop, no action could be taken. The Clay County School Board will discuss its next move in the legal arena at the upcom ing regular school board meeting, which will be held at 6 pm. on Nov. 1. In the initial discussion, the board talked whether there was a consensus to hire a new attorney or a desire to only contract for legal services with a law rm well-versed in education policy and law. DAgata replaced Starke attorney Dan Sikes who was hired by former School Su perintendent Charlie Van Zant Jr. Attorney from page 1 Police Briefs Plea deal: 5-year sentence for drunk driving death GREEN COVE SPRINGS A 55-year-old Magnolia Point Golf and Country Club resi dent faces a ve-year prison sentence, two years of house arrest and eight years of probation for a 2017 drunk-driving fatality. Fourth Circuit Court Judge John Skin ner sentenced Lisa Frances Beverly to prison on Oct. 23 for the death of Glen Aaron McDon ald, 39, of Fleming Island whom she struck and killed while McDonald was driving a scooter on U.S. Highway 17 around 10 p.m. on August 4, 2017. The State Attorneys Ofce originally sought to convict Beverly of DUI man slaughter, but the negotiated charge was lowered to leaving the scene of an accident involving death and misdemeanor DUI. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, which investigated the crash, Beverly had a blood-alcohol content of .20 the night of the crash, more than double the limit of .08. According to terms of the plea, Beverly wont have driving privileges for three years after being released from prison, will be required to wear a SCRAM alcoholdetection monitor for one year after prison and be subject to random alcohol testing while on probation. After prison, Beverlys vehicle will also be equipped for three years with an inter lock device that requires drivers to take and successfully pass a breathalyzer BAC test before the car allows them to drive. She will also be required to perform 250 hours of community service with Mothers Against Drunk Driving and participate in a Victims Impact Panel, which involves tell ing others how their drunk-driving experi ence changed their familys lives. The night of the crash, witnesses told FHP they saw Beverly heading south on U.S. 17 when she rear-ended McDonalds scooter at the foot of the Black Creek Bridge. The scooter and McDonald became trapped underneath Beverlys GMC Envoy and dragged McDonalds body to the top of the span of the bridge where he fell off. Beverly continued dragging the scooter without McDonald until her vehicle passed Garber Auto Mall where it ew out from under her SUV. Meanwhile, Beverly con tinued driving with the vehicle engulfed in ames until she pulled into her driveway in the 3300 block of Hawktree Court. After being detained and questioned by police, Beverly said, she didnt know what to do so she drove home. The entire inci dent was captured on video. The night of the crash, McDonald was transported to Orange Park Medical Cen ter where he was pronounced dead later in the week. Several of his organs were do nated to others after the crash. Country Club resident in possession of 700,000+ images of child pornography ORANGE PARK A Orange Park Coun try Club resident faces 10 counts of child pornography possession after an investiga tion by the Clay County Sheriffs Ofce. Police arrested John Michael Moss man, 39, on Oct. 22 at 3:07 p.m. us ing a warrant police obtained after rst interviewing him on Oct. 16.

On Oct. 16, Mossman conrmed for police that he was the only user of his electronics in the home and that they were password-protected. According to the po lice report, he also told police he owns an external hard drive and laptop. The ofcer went on to ask Mossman if he had knowl edge of peer-to-peer le sharing and Tor rent websites, which Mossman admitted he did. I advised John that Law Enforce ment on multiple occasions downloaded child sexual exploitation material from the IP[Internet Protocol] address at his resi dence, states the report.

OCTOBER 25, 2018 CLAY TODAY 17 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM BUY YOUR TICKETS!9 0 4 -6 4 1-1212alhambrajax.com OCT. 17 NOV. 18PRESENTING SPONSOR By Weston Williams Correspondent ORANGE PARK In an idyllic scene of child hood fun, hundreds of kids ran, laughed, played and launched handmade rockets. Many were clad in uniform, kids gath ered in mass to have a day of fun outside at a local Scout camp. However, this day was not for the Scouts themselves. Instead, it was for a community of children who rarely, if ever, have this opportunity. This scene unfolded Oct. 20 at Camp Echockotee in Orange Park, where Learn ing for Life, a Scouts of America organi zation that focuses on special needs kids, organized a Special Needs Camporee for youth throughout the metro Jacksonville area. The Camporee drew in almost 200 special needs students and their families and provided kids a place where they could feel safe. I think it has an incredibly positive ef fect on their lives, said David Gabriel, the youth event chairman for Order of the Ar row, the Scout honor society that helped or ganize the event. This experience could be something that they remember for the rest of their lives. If it gets them excited to take a break from their phone and take a break from their TV and go outside and join nature and have fun, thats why were here. According to the Episcopal Center for Children, a private nonprot organization in Washington, D.C. that assists children with special needs, getting special needs children outside can be crucial for their health. It can improve their coordination, motor skills and their social skills, as well as build self-esteem. With the ever-increasing technological advancements that are coming along, its easier for children to just be perfectly con tent sitting at home with their phone and their screens, totally invested in the palm of their hand, Gabriel said. Getting back into nature sort of gives them the opportunity that a lot of children dont get. The Camporee included games, Scouting activities such as arts and crafts, bounce houses, food, and boat rides on Doctors Lake. After the daytime activities, the or ganization set up camp sites in the woods of Camp Echockotee, with free to use tents, prepared for special needs to spend the night and experience real camping out doors. The Scouts even prepared a show for them, including skits and songs for the campers. According to Michelle Thompson, a Learning for Life executive who organized the event, such an event can have a great impact on the Scouts as well. Its touching because you get to see a lot of young men and women who are nor mally in it to earn badges and help them selves put themselves aside and help come together and make a lot of fun for a lot of kids who dont normally get a situation where they can just have fun and its care free and its not just about each individual Scout, Thompson said. Some of them said they dont really bump into any special needs kids where they are, and they said theyre not really different from how we are, they just learn differently than we do. Another thing is that they learn com Camporee provides fun, builds condence PHOTOS BY WESTON WILLIAMS The Oct. 20 Special Needs Camporee began with the Scouting tradition of the ag ceremony at Camp Echockotee on Doctors Lake Drive. Kids came from all over the Jacksonville area to put down their electronic devices, play outside and build self-esteem. passion and patience. It gives them an op portunity to give back to the community as a whole. They have to learn to put others rst, Thompson said. AJ Wooten, 16, of Jacksonville, said this was his fourth year attending the Campo ree. Its pretty fun, Wooten said. I like the idea of everyone coming out to help the spe cial needs. It encourages them, helps them to keep going and learn more. And it helps them to accept themselves. Its something to socialize, go outside, have fun. According to Wootens father, Albert Wooten, the event has changed AJs life drastically. When he was in school, they would call him stupid and make fun of him and stuff like that, just really give him a hard time, Albert said. It wasnt until he came here that there was that rst time he really felt accepted. It was that rst time I saw him socially interacting and stuff in a real way. He was just having fun you know he felt ac cepted. To me, as a parent, that was just amazing. So that set the stage and thats why we go every year. Albert Wooten said theres no way to measure how much AJ has improved be cause of the Camporee, but as a parent, he knows the Camporee is a major reason behind it. Now hes a little more comfortable in The Special Needs Camporee also allowed Scouts to learn more about others who are dierent from them. his skin, Wooten said. Now hes a social buttery. I mean hes still got some awk wardness about him of course, but hes a lot more uent about his communication and interacting with people. Hes more condent. So, I think thats the key thing is growing their condence. Having that moment where youre just one of the kids, they accept me, they like me, then it lets him know there are other kids out there like him, where Im not sure he really believed that before.

The night of the accident, the driver of the vehicle Andrews struck, Eliza Taylor Chapple, of Valdosta, Georgia, immediately stopped her car and got out, but Andrews ed the scene. The crash took place on West Walker Drive near Wendys restau rant. When Andrews ed, Chapple attempted to follow him but, she was unable to catch up and returned to the scene of the acci dent. About six hours later, a call for service came into the CCSO Communications unit. This call involved the report of an aban doned CCSO vehicle in Keystone Heights. When police got to Andrews house at 6357 Baker Rd. in Keystone Heights, there were numerous CCSO items thrown across a yard, including a taser, several loaded re arm magazines and more. After the call, CCSO contacted Andrews who reported his police vehicle had been stolen and then abandoned a few doors down the street from his home. As a result, CCSO opened an investigation that deter mined the damage done to the vehicle was consistent with the trafc crash reported by Chapple.

Why, when I was but a wee lad back in the 1970s, Halloween meant dressing like Superman or Wonder Woman; watching Its the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and bobbing for apples in the junior high school gym. Today, kids dress as blood-cov ered monsters or half-naked anime characters, people watch Daryl Dixon shoot zombies in the eye, and kids throw apples through the junior high school windows. Yes, it is that time of year, when little tykes and tykettes roam around with out stretched bags, begging for candy. Mean while, dentists start shopping for new yachts as cavities become rampant. But, Tom, I hear you saying. Couldnt we, as responsible adults, simply give out healthy foods or even toothbrushes as treats to the children? By all means. It is not too difcult to remove toilet paper from trees. My advice: Use a hose. What an interesting holiday, Hallow een. It is much more than masks, pump kins, and the start of the countdown to Thanksgiving. It actually has an interest ing history. As with many other holidays, its origins can be traced to ancient pagan traditions. Halloween nds its roots in the British Islands more than 2,000 years ago. At that time, the Celtic people celebrated a fes tival called Samhain (literally, summers end) on or around November 1. Samhain marked the end of the harvest and the preparation for the harsh winter months that would follow. Some sources claim that Samhain was also a time for individuals to reminisce about those who have passed, and possi bly even commune with them. While this is a source of debate, many historians do posit that this association with death and the macabre links Halloween and Samhain together. Other cultures contributed to the fes tivities associated with modern Hallow een as well. The Romans, for example, celebrated Pomona this time of year the goddess of fruits and trees. Really. We see this inuence in decorations and activities of the season (see, apples, junior high). Halloween follows a path similar to Christmas and Easter. When Christian ity came to Britain, monks decided that it was easier to incorporate local traditions within the weave of the new sacred ones. November 1 is the Christian Feast of All Saints and November 2 is All Souls Day. As a result, October 31 became the Eve of All Saints, or All Hallows Eve Hallow een! A holiday rich with Christian, Roman and Celtic histories. Jumping ahead, America didnt really practice any traditions connected with Halloween until Irish immigrants brought them from Europe in the mid-1800s. In true American fashion, Halloween has since been turned into a protable chil drens holiday. So, while there are some religious groups that still embrace its spiritual mes sages, Halloween is now synonymous with big business. Indeed, more than $9 billion was spent on Halloween costumes, decora tions and candy in just 2017 alone. Thats a lot of boo in the bank! Speaking of sweets, Halloween also brings the dreaded phrase trick or treat uttered over and over and over. What a strange proposition to present to individu als who might otherwise just be trying to enjoy a quiet evening at home.

N 276-7642 Really important things I n 1975 Alabama played football against Notre Dame in the Or ange Bowl in Miami. Alabama had a perfect record of 11 wins and was expecting to win the national championship. Notre Dane was 102. The 1975 game was won by Notre Dame by a score of 13-11 crushing the national championship hopes for Alabama. My son, Billy, a young teenager at the time, was at that game. He was brokenhearted that Alabama lost. (I think his only allegiance was his Southern roots.) He saw the Alabama coach, Bear Bryant, at a book signing the next day in a Miami mall. Billy went up to the coach, and almost tearfully, he said, Coach, Im so sorry you lost the game last night. Bear Bryant looked at him and in his low, gravelly voice, said, Son, it was just another ball game. Coach Bryant had been denied a national championship the previ ous year by a loss to Notre Dame. Alabama came in to the 1975 bowl game undefeated with eleven wins. Notre Dame had two losses. Ala bama was expected to win. But once again, Coach Bryant and his team were denied a championship by the same team. The next day he could say It was just another ball game. That is having your priorities in order. It is having an understanding that there are important things and there are really important things. I am not saying those football games had no importance. They were, in fact, important to many people at the time. Some things may be important at the time. Really important things have lasting importance! I dont care who any celebrity is dating. Or going to marry. Or wheth er they are having a boy or girl. I do care when a friend or family member is diagnosed terminally ill. Or when a loved dies. Or when a terrible ac cident disables or impairs someone for life. I want to always distinguish be tween something that may be mo mentarily important and something that is really important. n www.rstagcc.org Write the Pas tor at PastorBill@rstagcc.org

Charlotte Moore (904) 651-0998CharlotteSellsMoore@gmail.comREALTOR Providing the keys to a Moore Successful Move" Halloween from page 22 The notion of people disguising them selves and begging for food is not new, especially in the winter months. Mass so licitation rituals were actually quite com mon centuries ago. That explains the treat. The trick part is linked with what started as playful mischief. On Halloween in the late 1800s, simple shenanigans might be played in a neigh borhood or town. A pot overturned here, a lantern blown out there. Simpler times. Sadly, by the 1930s, what were once innocent pranks had become more ag gressive forms of vandalism. Municipali ties responded to this growing frustration by embracing the old ideas of dressing up in disguises and asking for food. It was thought to be a way of redirecting youthful, shall we say, energy. So, what children are basically saying to you is, give us a treat or we will direct our youthful energy to committing aggres sive forms of vandalism on this neighbor hood or municipality, whatever the case may be, Such darling angels. But now, you must excuse me. Mrs. Webber has promised that she will dress as Wonder Woman this year as a special treat for me. And thats a trick I dont want to miss! n Thomas Webber teaches AP Physics at Oakleaf High and worked in the plan etarium eld for nearly 20 years, including at MOSH, and has also taught physics and astronomy at both the secondary and col legiate levels. Halloween follows a path similar to Christmas and Easter. When Christianity came to Britain, monks decided that it was easier to incorporate local traditions within the weave of the new sacred ones. November 1 is the Christian Feast of All Saints and November 2 is All Souls Day. As a result, October 31 became the Eve of All Saints, or All Hallows Eve Halloween! A holiday rich with Christian, Roman and Celtic histories. Zirbel promoted to THCA director ORANGE PARK St. Johns River State Col lege has named Anna Zirbel as the new ex ecutive director of the Thrasher-Horne Center. Zirbel, who has 20 years of theatre and venue management expe rience, has served as both ThrasherHorne Centers director of market ing and sales and box ofce manager since joining the team in 2005. Fol lowing a nationwide search, Zirbel suc ceeds previous executive director, Denton Yockey. Annas experience, discipline and organizational skills make her the perfect leader to take the Thrasher-Horne Center to the next level, said Yockey. And thats exactly what Zirbel plans to do. As a key member of the ThrasherHorne Center team for the past 14 years, I am fully invested in the future of this organization, stated Zirbel. I believe the Thrasher-Horne Center has the potential to continue to grow into the cultural ag ship and hub of arts and commerce we want it to become for St. Johns River State College and Northeast Florida. Zirbel has a master of ne arts in the atre management from Florida State Uni versity and a bachelor of arts in public relations with a minor in theatre from the University of Northern Iowa. Her profes sional background during her time in Or ange Park also includes founder and presi dent of the Florida Association of Ticketing and at-large board member of the Orange Park Community Theatre. St. Johns River State College President Joe Pickens said the college is thrilled about Zirbels leadership at the ThrasherHorne Center. Annas appreciation for the arts, com bined with her sound knowledge and ex pertise in the eld, will allow her to keep building upon the strong foundation laid by Denton Yockey, said Pickens. The Thrasher-Horne Center is owned and operated by St. Johns River State Col lege and is located on the Orange Park campus. Anna Zirbel

The Power Rankings are the playoff points systems utilized by the FHSAA to determine the top eight teams in each region. The top four teams are consid ered district champions with the sec ond eight teams selected chosen based on power rankins points. Points are determined from won/lost records and strength of schedules. In region 1-7A, Columbia Lake City is tops with a 46.00 total with Robert E. Lee second at 41.71, Buchholz third at 41.25 and Edgewater (8-0) jumping to fourth at 39.25. Tallahassee Lincoln, a probable district champion, fell to sixth under Oakleaf with 38.88 with Oakleaf at 39.13. Lincoln (6-2, 2-0) jumped over both Oakleaf and Edgewater in week nine with a 28-3 win over Pensacola Escam bia (6-2) for their fourth win in a row and the district 1-7A title of a threeteam lineup; Lincoln, Chiles, Leon. Lin coln has 4A-Raines (7-1) and unbeaten 5A-Godby (8-0), remaining on their schedule with no playoff ramication with a loss to either. Chiles and Leon are playing on Friday. Oakleaf nishes with 3-7As Creekside (4-4) and unbeaten 6A-Ocala Vanguard (80), second-ranked in region 2-6A behind Tampa Armwood. Oakleaf needs to just beat Creekside and wait. The projected playoff games as of Oc tober 22, if Buchholz beats Bartram Trail on Fri., Oct. 26 and Oakleaf (4-4) beats Creekside, put the Knights visiting Lincoln in the round one region playoffs. If Bartram Trail wins, Oakleaf, who beat Bartram Trail, is district champion and would host a round one playoff. In district 2-7A, Columbia (7-1, 3-0) plays First Coast (4-4, 1-2) this week, but First Coast has two district losses and will not supplant Columbia as district cham pion if they win because Columbia has beaten both Lee (6-1, 2-1) and Fletcher (6-2, 2-1).

28 CLAY TODAY OCTOBER 25, 2018 CLAYTODAYONLINE.COM By Randy Lefko Sports Editor MIDDLEBURG Orange Park runner Wil liam Saunders signed up for the Black Creek 5K run to get a quick time on a rela tively at course. They didnt tell me they changed the course and added hills, said Saunders, who won the 30-34 age group despite the hills, but with a 23 minute, 25.5 second split. That was awfully hard. I was shoot ing for around 20-21 minutes. With the 7th annual event adding a 10K (6.2 miles) course to the agenda, race di rector Michael Patch saw an increase in interest in 2018. The 5K had 330 runners. The 10K had 57 nishers. The race pro ceeds benet the David White Memorial Scholarship named after Clay County Sher iffs Ofce Detective David White, who was killed in a drug arrest operation in 2012. I think the 10K distance will become popular as more hard core runners can get enough distance to make it worth the effort, said Patch, who noted the David White Scholarship fund has released near ly $65,000 over the past seven years. The 5K is a more recreational runner t while going 6.2 miles is a bit more intense for the average runner. We had about 80-85 new faces this year. In the 5K, Clay High cross country ace Luke Bybee, 16, battled with previous win ner and masters runner John McColl, 36, of Middleburg, and came out on top with a nal surge to win in 19:57.8. McColl was just ve seconds behind at 20:04.0 with 13 year old Triston Schultz third at 22:04.5. In 2017, Bybee was sixth with McColl second to Ridgeview High senior Keith Kelley who won on the easy course in 17:48.8. I think being near districts in my high school cross country season helped me in the new course, said Bybee, who will com pete Wednesday in the district 4-2A cham pionship race at Ridgeview High School. John is a strong runner and was tough to shake. For the women, Bishop Snyder High Schooler Hannah Johnson, 15, had to battle with another previous winner, Or ange Park stalwart Jessica Jewell, 37, with Johnson winning in 22:22.1 to Jew ells 22:39.1. Anjuli Mars, just 13, nished third in 24:20.8. Johnson outdueled Jew ell last year winning the female trophy in 21:17.3. Jewell was top female in 2016 with Johnson third female. For Jewell, Johnsons win was okay. Time to pass the baton to the younger runners, said Jewell, a Lakeside Elemen tary School teacher with numerous age group wins on the Jacksonville running circuit include the 1st Place Sports Grand Prix Series. Among the 5K runners, Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels, 53, nished sev enth in this age group in 35:59.3. In the 10K race, run as a second loop of the treacherous 5K rst loop, Middle burg masters runner George Simcox, 45, donned his best Batman shirt and literally ew cape-free across the nish line to win in 42:36.6 with Peyton Godwin, 53, second in 43:53.2. Zimberlist Hester, 51, outdu eled Orange Parks David Bonnette, also 51, for third by just 16 seconds; 44:51.445:07.1 with Middleburg cross country coach Paul Grybb rumbling in in fth in 45:40.1. Fleming Island masters runner Sharon Hawley may have ticked off a few seconds on her rst female time of 45:41.0 had she not had a warmup run earlier than the 7:30 a.m. race start. My husband, Dave, and I woke at 3:30 a.m. to run 15 miles this morning for marathon training, said Hawley, who is a Boston Marathon veteran and plans on competing in the upcoming Space Coast Marathon in Melbourne.

Bartram Trail shutout the Golden Ea gles with game scores of 27-25, 26-24 and 25-14 as both teams advance to the region 1-8A tournament. Fleming Island (23-3) will travel to district 3-8A champi on Fletcher High ( in Neptune Beach while Bartram Trail will host district 3-8A run nerup Atlantic Coast on Wed., Oct. 24. We just did not pass well tonight, said Fleming Island High coach Amy Walker, who nished her regular season as the number two seed behind Bartram Trail despite splitting games with the Bears in regular season play. Typically, what sepa rates us from other teams is that we did not have that ght in us tonight. Despite 15 scoring kill shots from se nior Lyara Rosario, the Golden Eagles backline defense had its share of mishaps off deep spikes from the Bears front line, mainly senior middle hitter Alexia Kuehl, who nished with over 200 kills for the season. Ten receiving errors during the match were critical in momentum shifts through the game that drained the spirit of the Golden Eagles. I could see the body language and lack of intensity, said Walker. I dont think the win streak was on their mind, but more the strain of putting ourselves out there as targets. We just have to regroup and move By Ray DiMonda Correspondent MIDDLEBURG With 34 years under her belt, Middleburg High volleyball coach Carrie Prewitt thinks she has something special in her team this season, and they proved it at home Thursday night as the team brought home the district 3-7A title and trophy with a 3-1 win over their nem esis Nease High Panthers. With the win, Middleburg (15-11) reversed last years district nal; won by Nease. Nease would eventually lose in the region seminal to Ocala Vanguard. Middleburg lost in the quarternal to Ocala Vanguard who made the region nal before losing to eventual 7A champion Choctowhatchee High. Mid dleburg has lost to Vanguard in the region playoffs the past two years with Prewitt last winning a district title (3-6A) in 2015. They (Nease) beat us three times this season, said Prewitt, who will host Ocala Forest (17-8), the district 4-7A runnerup on Wed., Oct. 24. They (Nease) are such a good team and its been such a tough battle every time we get on the court. We knew it could go either way so we just had to stay on course and our kids played really well and they were ready for this match. The Bronco gym was packed and the corner crazies were in full out mode. Having those kids over in the corner was huge,said Prewitt. It was such a big thing for us. Anytime you have a fan base like that its part of the package that pumps the girls up.

After a lengthy discussion at the far end of the gymnasium where Brightman re minded the team that they were not going to let Baker County steal a fourth district title from them, the Panthers roared out to a dominating 17-7 lead behind a fourman assault at the net from Rivers, Nick son, Kaeley Kelley and Aubrey Brown that left Barton and the Wildcats shaking their heads. Nickson nished with eight blocks on the night with Rivers adding another six. Leading the scoring parade was setter Ka tie Belveal who had 53 assists on the night.

In Game three, the Broncos made one heck of a statement that they were not go ing to go quietly.

The Broncos went on a seven unan swered point roll to close down the Pan thers 25-12 when the Panthers hit the ball out of bounds to stop themselves. When asked if the blow out was a con cern during the match, Prewitt said No not really because weve been in the oppo site position before, so we understand the momentum of the game and we knew we would have to start fast. Weve been work ing on that all season long, getting out on the court and get out quick because were kind of a slow starting team. Weve really worked on that and it showed.

Loss from page 29 By Randy Lefko Sports Editor OAKLEAF A 70 yard Tony Dorsett-like run in front of the Oakleaf Junior High sideline by Lake Asbury Junior High tail back Kaygen Williamson in the Lady Tigers opening drive of the second half fueled a thrilling comeback that turned a 13-0 decit at halftime to a 14-13 win in the Northeast Florida Athletic Conference ag football championship Oct. 18 at Oakleaf Junior High. With the Oakleaf Lady Yellow Jackets entering the game unbeaten in two years and with championships from the previ ous two years, the daunting task of wrest ing the title from coach Machele Crowley would require Lake Asbury coach James Black to gure a defense against the Yel low Jackets historic speed. Opening the game, Oakleaf quickly em ployed those speed tactics behind quarter back Kaylah Turner who sent running back Kyah Shannon over the middle with a quick pass that turned into a 60 yard breakaway sprint to paydirt and a 6-0 Yellow Jacket lead with a failed sweep from Turner on the point after attempt proving fateful. On the Lake Asbury drive after the score, Turner stepped in front of an out pass from Lady Tiger quarterback Gabby Ellis near the 20 yard line and cruised untouched for a second score in less than minute with Shannon running in the point after for a 13-0 lead into the second quar ter. On their opening drive, Oakleaf opened with an interception from Fantasia James near the Tiger 20 that Shannon carried her rst carry to the Lake Asbury ve yard as Oakleaf looked to score quickly to lengthen their lead. A jet sweep to Christina Lewis got Oak leaf closer with Shannon dropping a pass on third to set up a critical fourth and goal play at the 12 yard line. A pass to Shannon creating a collision with Lake Asbury defender Peatyn Miller that got a turnover on downs. On rst down, Ellis optioned left to Wil liamson who wiggled through a handful of defenders to outsprint the Oakleaf defense to paydirt for a 13-6 score. On the point after pass, wideout An nalee Harberson scored to push the score to 13-8. Oakleaf, in the third quarter, attempted to respond to the Williamson breakaway only to have Lake Asbury defender Taylor Thompson intercept Turner on the Oakleaf 15 yard line.

It was not meant to be fore whatever reason. From the opening kickoff, the Blue Dev il historic edge in big playoff ramication games seemed to be slowly building up on the Clay sideline as the offense, fueled by a 20 yard pass play from quarterback Turner Erstad to Cedrick Brown put Clay on the Wildcat side of the eld amidst a stunned Baker County sideline. From there, Clays offensive strategy of running around the huge Baker County defensive front became apparent as Brown slanted left for seven more yards and slot back Spencer Lesage caught a pass for another 10 to put the Blue Devils on the Wildcat doorstep; 19 yard line. Lesage would strike again off a swing pass right that he carried to the nine be fore the Wildcat defense swelled up and stopped the momentum to get a Tucker Reape eld goal. Next coaching strategy move; against a gigantic Baker County offensive line that averaged nearly 315 pounds, was a boband-weave attack led by wrestler-at-nose guard Abbott Taylor putting up a fearless front against the Wildcat girth while line backer stunts in the gaps from Joe Reed and Bryan Chapman and squeezes from the outside from defensive ends Cory Devore and Kenneth Johnson seemed to befuddle the Wildcat attack. On the Wildcats rst series, two pen alty ags and a near interception from Clay linebacker Cain Creery thwarted a fast re taliatory strike by the powerful Wildcats attack of running backs Scooby Graham and John Green as the Blue Devils got a punt from near mideld as the clock ran down to near four minutes from the rugged ground attack of both teams. Erstad came right back out and com bined with Lesage and Alec Holt for pass gains of 21 and 11 yards to put Clay back inside the 50. Another rollout pass to Les age got 12 to the 30 with another two plays later for seven to the 20 as the Blue Devil attack had Baker County reeling in pursuit from one sideline to the other. Holt snagged a hook pass with two de fenders draping him to put the ball at the 11 where Brown took two snaps to the three and freshman Al-Querius Ray n ished the drive for a 10-0 lead with 9:36 left in the half. Clays defense again went on the offen sive on the line of scrimmage with Baker County again trying to shake Green loose for his infamous long breaks downeld, but being unsuccessful with Abbott and Chap man both creating havoc in the backeld. A quarterback sack from Abbott on third and three put quarterback/punter Alex Bowen eight yards back for his second punt of the day. Starting at the 40 and with anticipa tion of the rise of the Wildcat defense up front, Erstad went deep to Holt across the middle from the 40 between two defenders that nished with Holt snatching a tip ball Clay from page 25 and racing to the end zone to send the Clay sideline into a frenzy with their lead now at 17-0 with Reapes third PAT kick. The score ignited the energy level of the Clay defense to a Purple People Eater level (reference legendary Minnesota Vi kings defense) as Reed and Ty Summer ford nailed Green on one play behind the line of scrimmage and Chapman and Cre ery grabbed Graham for a loss of one with the ofcials putting a sideline warning ag on the turf as nearly the entire Blue Devil sideline was frothing at the mouth to get a piece of the action. Taylor nailed Bowen twice on rollouts with Baker County punting again with nearly no offensive momentum for the en tire half. With the punt landing at the Clay eight and with 2:36 to halftime, Hoekstra was looking to get out of the half unscathed and up 17-0. Unfortunately for Hoekstra, the Wild cats defense woke up. Three plunges on handoffs resulted in a punt lineup from the six that the Wild cat defense smothered and recovered the loose ball for a touchdown and a 17-6 lead. More decisively, the intended momen tum into the locker room was stolen. That punt (block) gave them life, said Hoekstra. That was the game. After a lengthy homecoming event, Baker County stormed ot of the lockers and immediately stamped their desire to turn the game around with the Wildcat running game measuring out successive gains to mideld from the 20 before Bowen hit a pass just over Clay defender Jayden Bryans ngertips from the 36 that put the game quickly at 17-14 with a two point conversion. Erstad was harassed for two of three plays in the Blue Devils ensuing drive with a sack losing 14 yards to force a punt to mideld. Baker County, again, reverted to their power run game and moved quickly to the Clay two yard line behind Graham who n ished off the drive for a 21-17 Wildcat lead at 2:24 of the third. We needed a takeaway and didnt get one, said Hoekstra. The effort was amaz ing against the bigger kids. Clay hunkered in behind Ray attacking the tackles on the next drive with the burly ballcarrier nailing two runs to the 45 to set up a thrilling scoring pass play to Holt that ignite Clay, but nished with a penalty ag on the turf. Ray struck back with a 33 yard run back into Wildcat territory; 32 yard line, before Lesage took a sweep handoff left on fourth and three from the 27 and zigzagged around a handful of defenders before n ishing in the end zone in full horizontal dive to put Clay up against 24-21 with 10:52 to go. Baker County would net just 25 yards on their next drive with Taylor stopping Graham on third and eight to force a punt at mideld. Clay, stopped in three downs and forced to punt from the Blue Devil 20, nearly got a game-saving turnover when Baker Coun ty punt returner Chris Smith bobbled the punt and got smashed by cover man Eric Predmore. Baker County recovered. From there, the Wildcats strong-armed the now-fatigued Clay defensive front with straight power football between the tack les to the ball 70 yards in 12 plays to set up a dramatic goal line confrontation that put Baker County up 27-24 with 1:42 still on the clock. Clay football being Clay football, Hoek stra strategized yet another would be dramatic nish with Brown returning the lineup after severe dehydration cramps and delivering a 25 yard pass play to the Baker County 41 then Lesage adding two catches that put Clay at the 30 before Er stad went for Lesage streaking into the end zone two steps ahead of the safety, but throwing short for an interception that ended the game. Too many mistakes in the second half, said Hoekstra.

Two plays later, cornerback Jared Ashe forced a fumble by Creekside receiver Jack Goodrich which was recovered by the Golden Eagles Jake Libretto at the Knights 45 yard line. Dean Hyams then connected with Snyder for 25 yards and followed that pass with a ve yard scor ing toss to Broden Domenico that gave the Golden Eagles a 36-14 halftime lead. Fleming Island, now 4-4 overall, 1-3 in District 3-7A, forced two rst half turn overs that turned what might have been a shootout into a lopsided game. Librettos fumble recovery led to a touchdown, while a rst quarter fumble recovery by safety Darius Harris at the Golden Eagles 10 yard line prevented a Creekside score. The turnovers were important, said Springs. We do turnover circuits in prac tice where we swipe the ball, rip the ball and punch the ball out. Things only got worse for Creekside in the second half. Domenico crushed any hope of a comeback by returning the third quarter kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown, giving the hosts a 43-14 lead after Avery Coussens extra point. Domenico ran left, found a crease and cut upeld, taking ad Eagles from page 26 vantage of several downeld blocks as he sprinted up the sideline. After the defense forced a three and out, Hyams found up back Max Michaels up the seam for an easy 37 yard score, initiating a running clock with 9:00 left in the third quarter. The Fleming Island defensive coaches made an adjustment to their pass coverage at halftime, taking the screen pass away from the Knights playbook. Lavatai was limited to 15 passing yards in the second half after throwing for 207 yards in rst two quarters. Quinn Sieger, who had seven catches before halftime, caught only one more in the second half. McBride scored for the second time on a weaving 72 yard gallop, and back-up run ning back Kaleb Seyboldt put the nishing touches on the win with a 60 yard burst in the fourth quarter. The blowout against a District 3-7A foe that had entered the game with a win ning record was therapeutic for the Golden Eagles. This win means a lot, said Springs.

I told the team that Lake Asbury was not going to come here to just let us win, said Smith, who coached the defending champion Oakleaf team last year. We came out a little at and looking like like we got this and they made us pay for it. Oakleaf reorganized and engineered their own scoring drive behind quarterback Drew Ammon and Outlaw who followed the blocking track of backeld mate Trevyn Smith to paydirt all night. Outlaw scored his rst touchdown with 4:15 left in the rst to tie the game at 8-8, but Lake Asbury got a second spectacular kickoff return when Edwards blasted down the Lake Asbury sideline to the end zone to quickly evaporate the Oakleaf lead after just 15 seconds. Outlaw again carried the Yellow Jack ets downeld with four carries that ended with a 40 yard scoring run and a 16-14 score in the fast-paced clash. Back-to-back interceptions; one by Oakleafs Corey Washington, the other by Lake Asburys Abram Wright with Wrights Jackets from page 32 snag setting up a 40 yard score from Sin gleton that put Lake Asbury up 24-14 with Singleton pounding in for the two pointer. On the next Oakleaf series, Outlaw followed Smith for 23 yards and a 24-20 score with 1:22 left in the half. Lake Asbury got a heads-up play from center Braden Cunningham on the ensuing kickoff; an onsides kick, with a block that cleared the ball to be picked up by Bradley Warren to set up the Tigers at the 45. From there, Hampton opened with a 10 yarder with Singleton carrying the rest of the 45 yards on the next snap to up the Ti ger lead to 32-20 in just a 22 second span as the half ended.

I didnt know what I was going to get from them, defen sively, so I just wanted a feel for the game and for our kids and I needed to know what I could do on offense rst so I knew what kind of game I had to call. On the opening drive, the Raiders saw a steady dose of Terrance Johnson and Zykeim Sermons who slashed their way through the Panther defense and marched 72 yards on the opening drive to score only 2:29 into the game. With an Umar Young sweep right for a two-point conversion, the Raiders were up 8-0 and ready to face what the Panthers had in store for offense. To no surprise, Panther quarterback Mitchell McKinnon was a threat all night, but contained with the Raider scheme that would watch him closely. The drive was heavily dependent on Palatka senior run ning back Jaylyn Session who was able to turn several good runs, but was hawked all night as well and remained contained. The inside play action by McKinnon was a tough read all night and on the opening drive, the Raiders would not hold the Pan thers who used McKinnon on a naked boot leg to put the rst six points on the board for the Panthers at 5:04 remaining in the rst. Trying to even the score, the Raiders held when Palatka showed an unbalanced line and attempted a pass that was inter cepted. 8-6 Raiders still in command. With a kick out of bounds, the Raiders started on the 35 and drove down, now showing Johnson in a Wildcat formation, but playing quarterback splashed in with direct snap and run that kept the Panthers on their heels. After the dynamic duo of Johnson and Sermons drove the ball down to the one yard line, it was Raider quarter back Vincent Walkers turn to have some fun as he punched the ball in at 2:37 left in the rst quarter. The kick for point after was good and the Raiders were up 15-6. Early in the second, on the return Panther drive, it was Raiders Deonte Domineck who came up huge with a sack of McKinnon that forced a fourth and 20 Panther punt. This drive would end on the Palatka 36 when Orange Park attempted a fake punt, pass that sailed and turned the ball over on downs. On the return drive, with the Panthers driving at the 40, the Raiders forced a fumble of McKinnon, recovered by Raiders Jean Breville. The drive stalled, but put momentum in the Raiders favor. On the next Panther drive, as McKin non rolled right to set a screen pass, it was Raiders Safety Shaq Magwood who would have the glory as he picked off McKinnon and took it to the house for a pick-6 inter ception for the Raider defense. Johnson would add another two with a sweep right to put the score at 23-6. At 57 seconds left to the half, the kick back to Palatka was a touchback. The Pan ther drive was stopped by breakups of a deep balls by Alex Moore, backed up with another by Diallo Bryant. A draw play was stuffed and with the time outs called by the Panthers, and the last one by MacPherson, the Panthers would have to punt back to the raiders with 3.9 seconds to play. On the snap, in stead of running around to drain the clock, the Panthers tried to punt and the Raiders brought the house. Seeing the onslaught, the Panthers punter was distracted, and his toe jammed the turf, just tipping the ball that popped right into the hands of rushing Raider defender Cameron Grif eth. Grifeth snagged the ball mid-air, took off and cashed it in as the buzzer sounded to end the half. The Raiders kicked the point after and headed to the locker room up 30-6. The second half was a Raider defense highlight reel loaded with outstanding play that choked the Panthers to two scores in the second. The opening Panther drive was thwarted when Jean Breville stripped and recovered the ball as the Panthers went for fourth and short. The counter Raider drive got inside the Panther yard when the Raiders made the only faux pas in the game. After using a steady diet of Terrance Johnson and Zykeim Sermons, MacPher son tried a twist with Hunter Moore, Umar Young, and Robbie Reynolds III in the back eld. The plan was a direct snap, sweep, but something went wrong and the ball sailed through the trio and recovered by the Panthers at 7:05 in the third. I made a mistake. I tried to get a kid in there to keep his head in the game for the next few weeks and it backred on me, said Macpherson.That situation I should go with Terrance Johnson all day. I made the mistake and I own that. The Panthers drove and capped it off with a 59 yard deep throw touchdown. Again, the Panthers went for two and the Raiders foiled the try once again. Both teams would trade possessions capped with punts and the Panthers would add one more score with 3:02 left to play. The Raid ers killed the 2-point try and thats where the game nished as the Raiders got the on sides attempt back, and killed the nal 3:00. Im so proud of our defense, said Macpherson. Even on the goal line stand, even if we didnt stop them, making them go 6-8 plays from inside the 10 yard line takes the clock down. With the loss, Palatka will nish out the season and move to winter sports. Orange Park appreciated the Baker win over Clay that helped the Raiders in the standings. They must win Friday night at Menendez to keep their hopes for post season burn ing bright. Menendez, 6-2, beat Palatka 66-65 two weeks ago, and is coming off a division loss to Ridgeview last week, 34-33.

Fleming Island boys golf second in district SEE GOLF, 37 In region 2-5A, Orange Park has a prime opportunity to jump into the top eight with their game at Menendez this week as Menendez dropped to eight after losing to Ridgeview on Friday. Baker County has won the district 5-5A title with Menendez and Orange Park to battle for a possible top eight nish. North Marion (6-2, 2-0) is on top of district 6-5A; a three-team district with Eastside and Belleview, and should be the district champion. Nature Coast (61, 4-0) and Crystal River (7-2, 4-1), await the nish of this Fridays Nature Coast vs. Hernando game for district 7-5A title. Crys tal River nishes with 7-5As Weeki Wachee (3-5, 2-3). In district 8-5A, unbeaten Zephyrhills (8-0, 5-0) has a nal district match with Hudson (2-6, 2-3) to determine that district champion with River Ridge (5-3, 4-1) going up against Wesley Chapel (5-3, 4-1) in their nal district 8-5A game for a possible top eighth spot.

Rockledge leads district 4-5A. In region 2-4A, Keystone Heights, at seventh, is on the doorstep of the top six spot needed to get into the playoffs with In terlachen eighth. Keystone Heights loss to Villages was a strong loss to a high-point team as the Villages are still unbeaten. In terlachen (2-6, 1-4) should not challenge Keystone Heights, but the Indians (3-4, 2-4) will need some help to get into the top six. The Indians nish with a 3-5 Taylor High team that doesnt offer a bunch of playoff points. Bradford (4-4, 1-1) had a strong sched ule to assist their top ranking with Universi ty Christian (2A champs 2016, 2A runnerup 2017), an upset of previously unbeaten West Nassau (region seminals 2017) and loss to powerhouse 4A-Cocoa (4A runnerup to Raines 2017).

Interlachen 30.38 In region 1-6A, the slim chance of the Middleburg High Broncos beating Ed White on Monday (Ed White won 49-8), St. Augus tine on Friday and 4A-Bradford (top-ranked in region 2-4A) on November 2 is a scenario that could put the Broncos in as district 4-6A champion. Nease is in the mix with a district game at Englewood the deciding factor if the previous scenario happens. Middleburg controls their own destiny here and can make it despite a dismal season re cord, but they did it a few years ago. In the Panhandle, where seven of the top eight teams reside, in district 1-6A, leader Escambia (6-2, 1-1) has one nal district game against Washington (0-8, 0-2) with Pine Forest (5-3, 2-0) playing Tate (26, 1-1) with possible upsets putting either in jeopardy for the district title. In district 2-6A Navarre and Gulf Breeze are both 7-1, 2-0 in district play and meet ing for the nal showdown. One will get pushed to the second eight after this week. In district 3-6A, Crestview (6-2) and Niceville (7-1) meet with unbeaten district records (2-0) and one will push to the bot tom eight.
