DADS COACHING-ON FIELD AND OFF

Not one, but two coach-player combos on 2005 Wildcats


BY BOB GERARD
Press Sports
Wildcat head football coach Carl West is in animated conversa-
tion with his quarterback. He points out onto the field and you can
see the intensity in both his and his quarterback's eyes.
Farther down the line of helmeted players, assistant football
coach Ron Lee is having the same sort of talk with a husky running
back. Even from the stands you can read the concentration on their
faces.
The players run back on the field and the coaches turn their aten-
tion back to the overall progress of the game.
If you were just casually watching, you wouldn't pay much at-
tention to the scene that played out on the sidelines. But those more


informed about Wildcats football would know they had witnessed a
little drama you don't see very often on the gridiron. Not only were
they watching coaches talking to star players, they were also seeing
fathers talking to their sons.
Wildcat quarterback Sterling West is the son of Carl West and
running back Lucious "Pooh" Lee is Ronald Lee's son.
It's unusual that a team has a father!son combination, but two on
the same team is particularly rare.
"I would never have imagined when he started playing football
that I'd be coaching my son in high school," said Ron Lee. "It's
been a blessing."
For Carl West, this is the second time around. His son Brooks

Garbage


collect tion


proposal


is held up
County to mull
budgets first

BY NANCY SZANTO
News Editor
County-wide curbside garbage
collection was temporarily put on
hold August 25 after the Baker
County Commission learned it
will cost $7500 to prepare bid spe-
cifications and evaluate responses.
That is the fee quoted by engi-
neer Frank Darabi, who also told
the board there are a lot of deci-
sions to make before a bid call can
be advertised. He estimated the
service will cost about $1.2 mil-
lion per year some of which can
be offset by closing all or most of
the nine collection centers.
The contract for site attendants
is $159,340, but there are:other as-
sociated costs in the $696,941 gar-
bage department budget including
hauling from the sites to Ellerbee
Curve Landfill that would be elim-
inated with contracted collection
service.
The $24,per ton landfill tipping
fee will remain the same, as it is
based on per ton rates; the budget
for tipping fees in fiscal 05-06 is
$231,750 about a third of the to-
tal garbage budget.
"I suggest we balance the bud-
get first, to see if we have the mon-
ey available," said Commissioner
Fred Raulerson. He has been the
most avid proponent of collection,
but backed off a bit after learning
Mr. Darabi's fee and the estimated
annual cost of the service.
Mr. Raulerson said later he now
expects the proposal will have to
wait until the next budget year.
But it is a necessary service, he be-
lieves.
"As the county grows, we won't
be able to keep up with collection
at the sites. Already there is trash
overflowing after the weekends,
and it takes the crews two or three
days to catch up."
Only two county employees are
included in the garbage depart-
ment budget. However, a supervi-
sor for the inmate clean-up crew is
carried as a road department em-
ployee, as are any extra workers
who have to fill in after weekend
or holiday dumping overloads at
the sites.
Mr. Raulerson noted the sites
are currently over maximum capa-
city with an estimated 2500 house-
holds.
"If he county grows as expect-
ed, we could be looking at 5000
households and we'd have to
make the sites bigger or get more

Writing checks on you!!

ATM rejection-a first hint that her ID had been stolen


Stacia Norman displays a copy of one of the forged checks written in Miami on her account last month.


BY JIM McGAULEY
Press Publisher
Somebody in Miami went on a shopping spree
August 11, writing checks on Stacia Norman
worth $1853.19 for everything from toys to school
supplies and clothing.
Problem was, the person wasn't Stacia Norman.
And the checks weren't even hers. They were
forged, probably via a computer printer, with her
name, her bank routing and account number, and
her driver's license number.
Identity theft, the fastest growing crime category
in the world, is becoming more common here in
Baker County, not with the passing years, but with
the passing months.
Cases like Stacia's pop up in weekly sheriff's
department reports more frequently, and most of
them have a common thread: Whoever's doing
them is able to pull off the scam fairly easily.
And the victims never know it.
By the time Stacia, who lives in Glen St. Mary,
figured out something had gone greatly amiss with
her checkbook, two of the bogus ones had already
cleared her Wachovia account: the first for $444.49
to Circuit City and the second for $431.01 to Ba-
bies R Us.
"Three more, presented at a Wal-Mart, Office De-
pot and JC Penny in the Miami-Dade area, bounced
after the first two cleared.,
Her first hint?
"I tried to use my ATM in Jacksonville on the


19th and it was rejected. I tried a credit card and it
was kicked back," she recounted. "I figured the
bank had made a mistake because I balanced my
checkbook the previous Wednesday when my state-
ment came in."
She called up a computer printout of her account
activity and there they were, checks all written in
one day to stores she recognized, but stores she had
not been in on August 11.
"That's when it sank in; I thought 'How can this
happen to me?'"
She quickly set about trying to set things straight
with Wachovia. The bank charged more than $400
in bank fees from the bounced checks, including
three of hers for a truck payment and two credit
cards (the bank eventually waived all fees).
Stacia requested copies of the bogus checks.
They displayed her name and routing numbers all
right, but with a Miami address and her correct dri-
ver's license number. On the memo line were bo-
gus telephone numbers, and the bank name is First
Union (it doesn't exist anymore).
"We traced that address for a phone number and
called it," notes Stacia. "It was what sounded like
an older woman on a recording. I doubt she knew
anything about it anyway; they just used her ad-
dress like they used my name."
How did they get her name and numbers?
"The bank told me it could have been anyone
working at any of the places I pay with checks,
probably the ones I mail inr. It would have been

Death penalty in Nixon case?
*~ ~~i Nixo / '!


State Attorney Harry Shorstein
of Jacksonville has yet to decide
whether to seek the death penalty
against a Macclenny man and three
others for the murder of a Jackson-
ville couple buried alive just across
the Georgia line from Baker Coun-
ty.
Bruce Nixon Jr., 18, is scheduled
to be arraigned September 7 in,
Jacksonville.
A Jacksonville grand jury indict-
ed him August 18 along with for-


mer Macclenny resident Alani
Wade, 19, Michael Jackson, 23,
and Tiffany Cole, 23, both of South
Carolina.
Nixon is being held in Duval
County; the other three are in South
Carolina pending extradition..
A spokeswoman for Mr. Shor-
stein said as of August 30 he hadn't
decided on the death penalty. Pros-
ecutors have 45 days after a defen-
dant is arraigned to make the call.
The four defendants are accused


of kidnapping, robbing and killing
James and Carol Sumner, both 61,
who were reported missing from
their Jacksonville home July 10.
Their. car was found abandoned
in Sanderson a couple of days later,
but a search by Jacksonville and
Baker County sheriff's deputies
failed to find anything.
Soon afterward, Mr. Wade, Mr.
Jackson, and Ms. Cole were arrest-

ity board raises


its pay and money


to SO in'6 budget


Macclenny city commissioners
agreed on a tentative budget Mon-
day night that calls for a 3 percent
across-the-board raise for city
workers, a new deputy and patrol
car for the sheriff, and a new gar-
bage truck.
The commissioners also doubled
their salary to $300 per month, the
first increase in more than 20 years,
they said.
Those were the notable changes
to the preliminary budget the board
tinkered with August 23.
To compensate for the added
spending, coinmissioneis eliminat-
ed some items in an effort to avoid
Sdepleting the contingency fund.
The city's auditors have cautioned
about the fund's shrinkage.
Nonetheless the fund, which
was at $273,488 entering Monday's
workshop, was reduced by about a
third.
With the added expenditures, the
tentative budget calls for spending
about $4.75 million while taking in
$4.93 million.
The city will tax property own-
ers at 3.65 mills, same as the cur-
rent millage rate, but it will gener-


ate more money because of in-
creased property value, largely due
to growth.
Commissioners will vote on the
tentative budget at a public hearing
September 12 at 5:00 pm. Between
now and then, citizens who want to
peruse the spending plan can do so
at city hall.
Final approval is scheduled for a
vote September 26.
Sheriff Joey Dobson was at the
workshop to discuss his budget re-
quest of $695,567, a 31.7 percent
increase over the current year. In-
cluded was the addition of three
deputies and three patrol cars. His
request hadn't been integrated into
the initial draft of the budget.
Law enforcement is the biggest
general fund expense for the city.
Water and sewer services ac-
count for the largest chunk of
spending, but they generate income
that more than offsets their costs.
The sheriff acknowledged that
"it is a large increase," but noted
the area's growth will require more'
manpower.

Meth ring kingp n

arrested in California


The alleged kingpin of an area-
wide methamphetamine import car-
tel was arrested in a sting operation
in Log Angeles on August 22 and
brought back to Baker County later
last week.
Carlos Ibarra, 31, of Los Aiigel-
es was arraigned August 25 and re-
mains in county jail under $1 mil-
lion bond. If he is indicted by a fed-
eral grand jury later this month as
expected, Mr. Ibarra will be the
14th person charged with involve-
ment in what federal authorities
dubbed "Operation Sawmill."
He waived extradition to Florida
following the arrest and alleged de-
livery of a half-pound of metham-
phetamine to a federal agent posing


as a truck driver.
Randy Crews, a Baker County
deputy on temporary duty with the
federal DEA, and another Jackson-
ville agent had gone to California
with the local warrant the previous
day.
Mr. Ibarra's involvement with
the local ring centered just over the
Georgia line in Charlton County
along the St. Marys River is said
that of a conduit for the drug from
Mexican and California sources.
Thirteen persons were indicted
last spring by a federal grand jury
.in Jacksonville for various stages of
involvement in the ring. Most of
their cases are working their way
through the federal system.

Garbage collection proposal...

of them."
The commissioner, who repre-
sents the north county Baxter-Tay-
lor area, said he first got interested
in curbside collection after a visit-
ing friend commented on the vol-
ume of roadside trash..
Other friends have made similar
comments, Mr. Raulerson said,
and constituents call when their
yards catch trash blown from bags
that fall from pickup trucks.
He feels the money can be as-
sured by the fall of 2006.
"We've got the $185,000 're-
bate' from New River Solid Waste,
we can increase the special assess-
ments, the savings we get from
closing the collection sites, we can
look to free up money from the
regular budget."
This is the county's second for-
ay into considering curbside col-
lection. In early 2004, two com-
mercial haulers were interviewed
about the possibility of a single or
split franchise.
The idea stalled because some
commissioners felt it would be a
financial or political problem.
"I believe there is more com-
mission support now, plus Robert
Fletcher," said Mr. Raulefson, re-
ferring to the road superintendent
who also supervises the garbage
department.
During the August 25 budget
workshop, Engineer Darabi enu-
merated the main decision points:












,. ,,
Wear a patch.

Lose weight.i

Make money.

904-449-8603


Length.of the contract, recom-
mending five years and renewable
for a similar time.
"Under five years is not advised
because the contractor is going to
have to spend money for start-up,"
Mr. Darabi explained.
Area of service, which is like-
ly to include all of the county ex-
cept Macclenny including incor-
porated Glen St. Mary if the Town
Council agrees.
Curbside pickup only, or re-
quire the contractor to enter the
yard. The commission opted for
the former, reasoning that even el-
derly and handicapped citizens
now manage to dri e their garbage
to collection centers. There is also
concern over damage to driveways
if the garbage trucks enter private
property.
Yard waste, recycling, appli-
ance and furniture collection. The
request for proposals will include
them as separate line items to com-
pare prices.
Closing all the current'sites or
retaining one or two for the above
items.
Starting by January 1 or wait-
ing a year until the special assess-


ment can be raised on the 2006 tax
bills. The current $50 per house-
hold (commercial rates are $50 -
$1000 based on square footage) is
expected to bring $320,863 for the
coming fiscal year.
Forbidding the low bidder from
selling the contract. "You don't
Want someone to low-ball the bid,
and then you get suckered into re-
negotiating with someone else,"
Mr. Darabi warned.
Including businesses as part of
the franchise pact or allowing them
to negotiate their own contracts.
Those who already have contracts
with a hauler are entitled to at least
three years notice. If businesses
are not included, the special assess-
ments on them can not be raised
based on the franchise plan. How-
ever, they can be raised if other
factors in the garbage budget are
considered.
How to handle the private haul-
ers who have accounts. Commis-
sioner Raulerson asked for a list of
the current vendors and the num-
ber of homes they serve.

ON THE

RECORD


This year's fiscal ruminations of
the Baker County Commission
.may be the least focused ever but
in a good way.
In three workshops so far, the
board has yet to home in on actual
.spending requests. Instead, there
have been discussions of expensive
new projects like curbside garbage
collection and road paving bal-
anced by a proposal to raise special
assessments and create impact fees
on new construction.
There has also been considerable
debate over special pay raises and
bonuses balanced by a suggestion
forf a structured pay plan to equa-
lize starting pay.
In fact, "balance" may be the
key word coming from this year's
budget deliberations.
Of course, balancing the budget
is always the goal. But for at least
the last three years, the commission
has been in the position of crying
wolf, balancing on paper with
about $1 million from reserves
each time only to find nearly a
year later from the audit that the
county is actually adding to those
reserves when all, the income and
outgo are tallied.
It would take more than the con-
ventional audit to find out whether
this is because the projections are
off or whether everyone is being
extra frugal in response to-the bud-
get preparation poor-mouthing.
But instead of trying to crunch
the numbers, this year board mem-
bers and staffers so'far are discuss-
irig cot'cepts. r
Instead of the merits of a partic-
ular employee's salary, there is em-
phasis on the fairness of overall
pay. for similar jobs with an eye to
prodding or forcing elected offi-
cials to conform.
Instead of panicking over a per-
ceived deficit, the discussion is
over how to generate, increase or
free up revenue for a desirable ser-
vice.
The latter focus may be the most
beneficial since the special as-
sessments were established in 1989
- and resulted in the next election

credit cards, we pay our bills.
That's right, pay our bills. As in
the case of Ms. Norman, it was
probably a personal check sent to
some creditor that was used by a
crooked employee to glean the in-
formation he or she needed to pro-
duce bogus bank checks, complete
with account and routing numbers,
and in her case, a driver's license
number she included on her printed
checks just to save time and be a
good citizen.
Some may have read recently
about credit card scams,pulled off
during one of our more routine
transactions paying for a meal in
a restaurant.
A waiter or waitress (they're
called "servers" today) takes your
card while you're gabbing away
With friends. He or she literally dis-
appears, only to return minutes lat-
er with your card and the check.
You sign it, take a copy and leave a
copy, then you leave the restaurant.
Has anything happened to your
card? Increasingly, diners are find-
ing out the answer isyes much to
their dismay.
Though there's a limit to your li-
ability when someone steals your
credit card information, still it's a


huge hassle, and the costs absorbed
by your credit card company rou-
tinely.get passed onto you in the
form of annual fees,-etc.
The newest trick is for waiters to
take a picture of your card with
their cell phone (yes, their cell
phone) and e-mail it to their com-
puters or to a co-conspirator.
Some restaurants have begun us-
ing portable scanning devices that
allow your card to be swiped right
in front of you at the table. Your
card never leaves your sight.
That'll work until some enter-
prising scam artist figures out a
way around it.
SWhat happened to Ms. Norman
of Glen St. Mary is probably a
good argument for on-line banking
and bill paying, which a surprising

IMPRESSIONS


This week's page one article on
identity theft is worth reading be-
cause the crime in all its present
forms has evolved from something
that happens to other people rarely
to something that already has hap-
pened to someone you know.
Or happened to you.
We chose Ms. Norman for the
subject of the article not because
this is the first time it's happened in
.Baker County, but because she
seemed like the typicall" victim of
an identity seam. And indeed she
is.
She's typical in that she has the
perfect tools for the identity thief: a
checking account or two, a debit
card and maybe a few credit cards.
SThat's all they need.
Most of us are a bit careless with
our identity, though we're loathe to
admit it. We leave receipts and old
checks lying around in our vehi-
cles, we don't watch clerks closely
during the brief time they have our.

defeat of commissioners who voted
for them.
Politicians since then have been
spooked at the mere suggestion of
increasing taxes or fees, although
expenses in both the garbage and
fire departments have far outstrip-
ped income.
Perhaps the county commission
should take a lesson from Macclen-
ny's utility fees ordinance, which
allows an automatic annual in-
crease if the city board chooses to
invoke it. No public hearings, no
special notices the monthly bill
just goes up a bit. Customers prob-
ably don't even notice, figuring
they're just using a bit more water.
A modest 3% annual increase
since 1989 in the $75 combined
garbage disposal and fire protection
assessments would have them now
at $123.97. And instead of bringing
in $482,500, the annual revenue
would now be $797,573.
As with Macclenny's utility
fees, the special assessment in-
creases would be barely noticed
among the changing figures on the
annual ad valorem tax bill. Taxpay-
ers already know to expect a bit
higher bill each year on their prop-
erty levies, even if the taxing au-
thorities lower their millage, be-
cause the taxable value of each
home can increase up to 3% annu-
ally.
Similar automatic cost-of-living
increases could be built into other
fees like building permits.
It's likely the commission will
soon have to settle down to the job
of balancing the coming budget. It
is, after all, due for enactment by
September 30.
In the meantime, some very pro-
ductive discussion is taking place.

Thank 'Ron'for all that's worthwhile


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


I don't feel funny. I have no en-
ergy. I need some help. I need
something that will make my life
easier.
When I am in this kind of mood,
there is only one person I can turn
to who can help pull me out of this
blue funk and put me on the right
path. That's right I am talking
about the Mahatma of Machines,
the Guru of Get it Done: Ron Pop-
eil.
"Why isn't it your wife?" my
wife asked looking over my shoul-
der as I write. "Why don't you say
bubble bath and champagne?"
Ron Popeil. His name might not
ring a bell, but I am absolutely cer-


tain his company and products will.
Ron Popeil, the CEO of Ronco
Products, those great gadgets that
can stop men from going bald, slice
and dice potatoes, firm your abs
and tie the perfect bow.
"Change that to candlelight,
bubble bath and champagne!" my
wife said.
Ron Popeil's entire life has been
dedicated to making life easier for
people like me. There should be
some kind of Nobel Prize for Ron
Popeil. I mean really who has
helped helpless human beings like
me more than Ron Popeil?
"Your wife. The answer.to that
question is your wife."
So I'm driving along a country
road and there in amongst the trees
is a swiftly moving creek. I am ov-
ercome with the urge to stop the car
and get out and fish. But do I have
the time to drive all the way home
and get my fishing pole, worms


* 0


and a Styrofoam cooler?
Of course not. Never fear. Ron
Popeil is there to help. Out of the
trunk I pull my trusty Popeil pocket
fisherman, complete with every-
thing I need. In no time flat, I am
sitting on a log, humming happily
and pretending to be Huckleberry
Finn.
"Me pocket fisherman. Me -
pocket fisherman. Which one can
give you greater pleasure and satis-
faction?"
I look in the'mirror and see I am
losing my hair near the back.
Should I panic? Should I run out
and get hair replacement surgery?
Or should I attempt the dreaded
comb-over? All I have to do is rely
on Ron Popeil and his line of Ron-
co products and I'm back looking
like a 20 year old again.
I pull out my can of Ronco hair
magic and spray in the offending.

bald spot. Hair magic, with its pat-
ented hair camouflage technology,
comes out of the can looking a lot
like the flocking you spray on
Christmas trees. You can buy it in
black, brown, blonde, gray and red.
Once again, Ron Popeil has
come to the rescue. Okay, so the
back of my head looks like an as-
phalt road, but I'll take that over
the dreaded comb-over any day.
If I'm still feeling badly about
myself I can turn to the Bun and
Thigh Maximizer. With this simple
machine, I can turn myself into
Adonis. Who needs a high-priced
gym when for $9.95 I can get the
ultimate in fitness tools? How can
he sell this revolutionary product
for so little? It just supports my rea-
soning that Ron Popeil is a candi-
date for sainthood.
Popeil has thought of it all; he's
taken all our foibles and solved
them. I am chronically losing the
remote control to my,television.
That is a problem since I am so la-
zy I will not get out of my chair to
turn the channel. Ronco to the res-
cue. Popeil has two models guaran-
teed to keep my remote control
within my grasp. The chair holster
keeps all my remotes at hand. It
folds neatly over the arm of my
lounge chair. It also comes in, the
colors of my favorite college or
NFL team. I can also get a remote
holder that velcros to my belt like a
cowboy.
'Yee-hah! Does that come in
leather or naugahyde?"
I think it's leather.
I'm helpless in the kitchen, but
that won't stop me from being as
good a chef as Emeril with the
range of Ronco products for cook-
ing. If I have trouble scrambling
eggs not to worry. Simply insert
the Ronco In The Shell Egg Scram-
bler,'a wire that spins around inside
the egg, and I don't have to worry
about any of the mess associated
with making a delicious breakfast.
If my food tastes bland, I use the
Flavor Injector. It looks a lot like
the kind of hypodermic needles
vets use on horses. I inject soy
sauce, or garlic...
"Or motor oil.
And have a delicious roast.7If I
make more than I can possibly eat,.
there is the Ronco Food Dehydra-
tor. For the amazingly low price of
$19.95, Ron Popeil can show me
how to suck all the water out of my
food and turn it to beef jerky.
"Do you think that would work
on cellulite?"
I don't know for sure, but I think
Popeil has a home liposuction kit in
the works.
For $29.95 you can take care of
Those cellulite problems, and if you
call within the next 10 minutes you
can' receive a Epilady Jr, that re-
moves unsightly hair absolutely
free.
I feel better now. I am ready to
face the world, knowing I can
scramble my eggs, make my bald
spot disappear and catch a nine
pound bass, all for the low low
price of $29.95.
Ron Popeil should be the next
President of the United States. If he
can revolutionize my kitchen, just
think what he could do for the
economy.


number of people do anyway.
Most banks and financial institu-

make it next to impossible for peo-
ple to hack inside your account da-
ta. In fact, the banking conglomer-
ates don't exactly come out and say
it, but they want to make it easy for
you to never have to come into
their offices.
If you bank on-line, they don't
need the employees, the big build-
ings and the like. You're cheaper to
service on-line. With gas jumping
soon to $3 and tight schedules, it's
looking better all the time even

Development


board takes look


at Sanderson plat


The county's newly organized
Development Review Committee
met for the first time August 24 to
review two site plans.
The committee replaces what
has for years been called the plat
review board. It has representa-
tives of half a dozen departments
plus the school district that will be
impacted by development.
The first review was of the
229.6 acre Sanderson Farms tract
near the Interstate 10 and US 90
interchange. It is planned for 125
home lots and a 12 acre commer-
cial area.
The latter was dictated by the
Florida Department of C6mmunity
*Affairs, which wants outlying resi-
dential areas to have their own
support business districts.
"There are lots of cul de sacs in
this plan, so we need to be sure
there is adequate turn room for
emergency vehicles," noted Emer-
gency Services Director Rick
Clark.
"And it would be good to have
a second exit in case there's a fire
at the first house that would leave
the rest of the people trapped,"
said Road Superintendent Robert
Fletcher.
S Special Projects Manager Bob-
by Hancock noted the subdivision
will likely trigger a new school
bus route. Mr. Hancock retired
from the school district, for which
he was the transportation director.
The county and school district
are discussing impact fees that
could cover some of such costs,
but a new clause could be added to
the comprehensive land use plan
to assess a separate "fair share" fee
from developers.
Mr. Clark also suggested the
Sanderson development is a good
reason for the county to consider
,water and sewer plants. "This is
the w\ay it starts for most commu-

Palatka trail to

Lake Butler
The Florida Department of En-
\ironmental Protection's Office of
Green% a\ s and Trails has begun
\ or k on the Palatka to Lake Butler
State Trail. Clearing and mowing
of the trail corridor commenced
last week in Palatka near State:
Road 100 and will continue west
to Lake Butler..
Purchased from Norfolk South-
ern and Florida Railroad Company
with Preservation 2000 funds, the
trail corridor will be approximate-
ly 47 miles in length and traverse
Putnam, Union, Clay and Bradford
counties. It will be the longest con-
tiguous trail in Florida to date and
will contribute to the Florida Na-
tional Scenic Trail, a 1400-mile
project that will one day stretch
across some of the state's most
picturesque areas from the Pan-
handle through South Florida.
The Palatka to Lake Butler Trail
tra erses flatwoods, sandhills and
wetlands and passes through sev-
eral small Central Florida towns. It
crosses eight creeks and comes
within one mile of 11 lakes, mak-
ing it an ideal "peddle and paddle"
trail for biking and kayaking or ca-
noeing.
The Office of Greenways and
Trails manages eight state,trails.
DEP also maintains five rail-trails,
or railroad tracks restored and con-
verted to recreational trails for hik-
ing, biking and skating.

ida trails, visit www.FloridaGreen-

nities, and the county is losing out
by letting Macclenny spread out
and get those customers," he said.
Macclenny is unlikely to spread
as far west as Sanderson, but has
been annexing in all directions
around its city limits.
Planning and Zoning Director
Cathy Rhoden said the county is
considering utility plants at the St.
Mary's Shoals Park north of Mac-
clenny. New development there in-
cludes a 650 acre project by Adar
Developers of Miami, and another
2200 acre proposal for which the
developers are due later this week
for an initial review. Several other
parcels have already been under-
way for several years.
The committee also briefly dis-
cussed the Greystone development
near Glen St. Mary. The 123'/2
acre project was originally slated
to annex into Glen, but land own-
ers J. Ray and Gerra Gatlin pulled
the request after Macclenny
claimed jurisdiction over utility
line connections.
"They didn't want to get caught
up in a two-to three-year squab-
ble," Ms. Rhoden explained.
Greystone will include .a com-
mercial section along Wildcat Drive,
possibly including some homes
above commercial space. That
would concur with the Envision
Glen Plan written in 2001, a plan
that calls for mixed uses rather
than segregating residential and
commercial.
Road Superintendent Fletcher
suggested the developer should
pave all of Westside Loop rather
than just along the subdivision.
"Residents are going to go north
from there to CR 125. We can re-
quest it and also check if we can
make them do it," he reasoned.
Sidewalks should also be a re-
quirement, Mr. Fletcher said, be-
cause there will be so many chil-
:dr.en \. walking to.,nearby-.schools
and a swimming pool at the front
of the project..
EMS Director Clark said fire
hydrants should be included in the
Greystone project.
Ms. Rhoden asked for written
responses from each department
within 10 days after data on each
project is sent to them.
"You will decide whether a par-
ticular project is going to impact
your department and how
much," she explained.

Off-duty officer tips police to

man wanted in two counties


A Starke, Florida man wanted
on warrants in both Bradford and
Alachua counties was corralled
following a brief foot chase in
south Macclenny the afternoon of
August 28.
Local deputies were advised by
an off-duty Starke policeman that
Malcolm J. Newby, 20, was in the
neighborhood around Grissholm
St., and the suspect fled when ap-
proached by Deputy Brad Dough-
erty.,
With the help of several other
officers, Mr. Newby was captured
Sin a private yard when again ap-
proached by the officer, who
threatened to down him with a
Taser electric jolt.
Mr. Newby is wanted in Brad-
ford County for battery and in
Alachua for violation of probation.
In another arrest for resisting,
Christopher J. Combs, 28, of Mac-
clenny was cited after he four times
ignored requests by Deputy Adam
Faircloth to leave the parking lot of
the Country Club Lounge.
Mr. Combs was standing in a
crowd holding a beer when offi-
cers arrived at the lounge in the
early morning hours of August 28
to assist a woman who had passed
out.
Jerry Wilkerson, 29, of Glen St.
Mary was arrested the same morn-
ing when he returned to Mac's Li-
quors in Macclenny after being
warned the pre\ ious evening to
stay away.
Mr. Wilkerson, who has been
arrested twice on other offenses
the past two weeks, was creating a
disturbance at the downtown bar

2 potcharges

after traffic stops
Traffic stops by county deputies
resulted in misdemeanor drug pos-
session counts against two persons
the past week, one a driver and the
other a passenger.
Deputy Darrin Whitaker said he
chased a 1994 Ford pickup west on
'Nursery Road and Reid Stafford
Road the evening of August 24 after;
it sped by him in a congested area.
SDriver Jacob Himmelhaver, ,22 ,'
of Macclenny produced a marijuana
cigarette while being questioned by
the officer.
Late on August 27, Deputy Ad-
am Faircloth arrested Gary W.
Crews, 18, of Macclenny on a simi-.
lar charge after stopping a vehicle in
which Mr. Crews was a passenger.
The officer followed the vehicle
with a defective taillight in an un-
marked, car north on 121 to just
south of the Georgia state line. Mr.
Crews had a small amount of pot
and a smoking pipe.

and initially complied when or-
dered to leave by Deputy Erik De-
loach.
Police made two other arrests,
both for disorderly intoxication, at
the same lounges the past week.
Edward Lipnick, 42, of Mac-
clenny attempted to flee on foot
from Mac's the evening of August
25 after police were called for a
disturbance.
Gregory S. Barton, 21, also of
Macclenny, was arrested the morn-
ing of August 26 at the Country
Club Lounge after a disturbance.

Wife arrested

for attack on

her husband
A wife and mother faces a
count of domestic violence battery
following her arrest in north Baker
County the evening of August 27.
Sheilah J. Knapp, 52, allegedly
struck husband Raymond M.
Knapp, 49, several times and pull-
ed his hair during an argument at
their residence off Shadd Lane
near Taylor about 7:00.
Deputy Ben Anderson made the
arrest after he found Ms. Knapp
walking along CR 122 and ques-
tioned the couple. He also sum-
moned a social worker from the
Department of Children and Fam-
ilies to look into allegations of
abusive behavior on the part of the
mother toward a 14-year-old son.
Two days earlier, deputies re-
sponded to a domestic violence
call north of Glen St. Mary involv-
ing a gunshot and arrested Glenn
Villabroza, 32, of Jacksonville.
The suspect went to the resi-
dence of estranged wife Tina, 23,
just after midnight and forced his
way inside. He was armed with a
.40 caliber automatic pistol which
he surrendered to officers when
they arrived on the scene.
Minutes earlier, Mr. Villabroza
apparently dodged a bullet fired
from another pistol in the hands of
Wilfredo Huertas, 25, of Jackson-
ville, who was hiding in a bed-
room of the residence off Jr. Burn-
sed Road..
In another arrest involving a
firearm, Nicholas D. Williams, 19,
of Glen St. Mary was charged Aug-
ust 23 carrying a .22 magnum pistol
concealed in his pants pocket.
Deputy Erik Deloach said Mr.
Williams. and two others were
standing near the intersection of
CR 139B and Carver Loop that
evening with an open beet.
Mr. Williams behaved suspi-
ciously and nervously when ques-
tioned, and consented to a body
search that yielded the firearm. He
was also charged with loitering.

Two taken to hospital after chain reaction accident on Lowder Street
A Glen St. Mary man was charged with careless drivingAugust 29 after his northbound truck slid into the back of a car stopped on Lowder Street in west Macclenny, pushing it into the back of another
car, which was behind a vehicle waiting to turn left onto Charlie Rowe Drive. Joshua Lovingood, 18, told police he slammed on his brakes when he saw the cars stopped in front of him, but his truck slid
on the wet road He rear-ended a 1998 Honda driven by Regina Starling of Macclenny, who was pushed into 1992 Chevrolet driven by Patricia Terry, also ofMacclenny.




City board raises pay,money to SO

He said he requested two depu-
ties a few years ago, but got only
one with the understanding the,
other would be added in the future.
It wasn't, which is why he ask-
ed for three now.
However, he offered a compro-
mise budget figure, telling the
commissioners he could get by
with a 12 percent to 15 percent in-
crease.
Mayor Gary Dopson said, "I'm
'looking at 12 percent, but that's
stretching more than I wanted to."
Commissioner Phil Rhoden said
two offiMlS" dget priorities are fire-
and police protection.
"There's no point in having a
sidewalk if it's not safe to walk
down," he said; adding that the
commissioners should "do as much
as we can."
They ended up doing 12 per-
cent, which is enough to pay for
one new deputy and one new pa-


Hit, run

at county

EOC drive
A motorist who drove into a
guard rail at the Emergency Oper-
ations Center early on August 28
then fled the scene was driving
without a license that had been
suspended a dozen times.
Christopher D. Gay, 29, of Mac-
clenny had been declared an habit-
ual offender because of past dri-
ving violations.
A dispatcher inside the EOC
reported seeing Mr. Gay's full-size
Chevrolet strike the guard rail in
front of the building on US 90 just
before 4:00 am.
Deputy Erik Deloach was in the
neighborhood and pulled over the
motorist shortly after he drove
back onto US 90 and headed east
into Macclenny. He was charged
with driving without a license and.
leaving the scene.
In another case, Lee N. Wooten,
31, of Macclenny was charged the
morning of August 23 with driving
without a license that had been
suspended four times.
He was stopped at SR 121 and
North Boulevard just before 8:00
am by Deputy Brad Dougherty be-
cause the license plate on his 1984
BMW was assigned to another ve-
hicle.
He was also charged with mis,
demeanor possession of marijua-
na. Mr. Wooten's license had been
suspended for a prior drug-related
offense and for failure to appear in
court.

trol vehicle.
The sheriff's budget also in-
cludes raises of nearly 3 percent
for the nine employees currently
funded by the city, and a few thou-
sand dollars for operating expens-
es, he said.
City workers also got their
raise, which is 3 percent across the
board, the same as last year.
Commissioners bumped their
own pay and the mayor's. During
the discussion, it was estimated it's
been about 24 years since the ci-
ty's governors got a raise.
"We're making all the decisions
and taking all the flak," said Com-
missioner Vernon Bennett. "We
ought to at least get enough money
to pay for gas."
Commissioner Rhoden said,
"When I applied for this job I did-
n't know what the salary was.... I
know why I wanted the job. None
of us is here to make money."
The vote to approve the raise
was unanimous.


Although the initial budget pro-
posal called for the purchase of a
garbage truck, city manager Ger-
ald Dopson said the department
could get by maybe another year
or two.
But after cutting $30,000 for im-
provements and a new maintenance
building, commissioners decided
to pick up the garbage truck, ap-
proving $40,095 for the first of
four payments.
In a low-money, long-discus-
sion issue, the board rejected a re-
quest for $25,000 from the North-
east Florida Community Action
Agency, but conditionally approv-
ed $20,000 for the Baker County
Youth Hope Center.
The center, which needs about
$60,000 to pay off a mortgage
note on its land, asked for an equal
amount from the city, county and
Glen St. Mary.
Glen officials said no, but the
center's president, Carl West, has
asked them to reconsider.


City commissioners agreed to
pay their share if the other entities
do also, but said they won't fund
the entire amount alone.
The $20,000 would be paid
over three years.
The commissioners viewed the
contribution as a one-shot deal to
help get the center going.
However, they were wary of
funding the Community Action
Agency for fear it would become a
recurring request.
Commissioner Bennett also
wondered why the agency, under
former director Dan Gibbs, was
able to provide services for years
without asking the city for money,
but now suddenly needs $25,000.

Repairman

accused of

a burglary

The sheriff's department says it
will file a criminal complaint for
grand theft against Justin T. Payne
for allegedly stealing $5720 in
jewelry from the home of Maggie
Brooks off Yarbrough Road near
Taylor.
Ms. Brooks told police she
returned home that evening after a
brief absence to find a bracelet and
four wedding rings missing from a
master bedroom.
The suspect and his wife were
at the residence earlier that day to
repair an air conditioner, and ac-
cording to Deputy Adam Fair-
cloth, Mr. Payne later confessed to
taking the property. He was not
immediately arrested, but police
said a criminal complaint was for-
warded to the state attorney's
office.
In another home burglary, this
one between August 22-28, some-
one removed nearly $1600 in
property from the residence of
Richard Kidd off Cow Pen Road
west of Glen St. Mary.
The owner said he returned
after the weeklong absence to find
two televisions, photos, DVDs and
a VCR missing. Entry was through
a bathroom window.
Another night theft was report-
ed at the school district's new pre-
K and kindergarten center which is
not yet completed.
A nail gun, power drill and pow-
er saw were taken from an un-
locked tool box behind the district
office on South Boulevard. The
tools belonged to Rhodes Brothers
Construction of Lake City and
were valued at $1200.
A vehicle burglary occurred

Battery on


A complaint alleging felony
battery on a pregnant girlfriend
was filed August 27 against Mel-
vin L. Ostrander, 24, of north
Macclenny.
Chrisi\ Perez, 19, of Sanderson
told police the boyfriend struck
her and pinned her down during an
argument at a North Boulevard
residence early that morning.
The incident took place in the
presence of the couple's 1-year-old
son, and a subsequent search that
morning turned up no sign of Mr.
Ostrander, who was gone when
Deputy James Nickles arrived.
A criminal complaint was filed
the same day charging Timothy
Griffis, 32, of Macclenny with ac-
costing ex-girlfriend Angela
Howard, 36, while she was work-
ing at the Country Club Lounge.
The girlfriend told police, a
judge earlier banned Mr. Griffis
from seeing her, and it was later
learned that at least one warrant
had been issued because of domes-
tic violence.
Another battery complaint was
filed August 20 against 19-year-
old Jordan Satterwhite of Mac-
clenny for allegedly attacking Am-
ber Harvey, 20, of Glen St. Mary
during an argument.
Ms. Harvey and several wit-
nesses said she was pushed, chok-
ed and slapped during the con-
frontation off Lauren Lane.
Linda Lewis, 24, of Sanderson
filed a domestic violence com-
plaint against her estranged hus-
band Charlie Lewis, 27, following
a fight at their residence off Light-
er Road early on August 25. ,
Ms. Lewis said the husband
was drunk when he returned home
after an earlier confrontation and
they again fought. She said she
was pushed to the ground and
struck several times.

Writing checks on you: Fraud


(From page one)
easy for them to copy the informa-
tion my driver's license number
is even printed below the ad-
dress!"
Stacia says new checks from
Wachovia (they opened a new ac-
count for her) don't have the dri-
ver's license, and the bank says it
advises customers to avoid putting
it on checks.
"I always thought I was doing
people a favor by putting it on
checks. No more!" she vowed.
It's also likely that the thief or
thieves produced some form of bo-
gus identification at the stores,


something they fabricated to match
the information on the checks.
Even though Wachovia replac-
ed the filched funds after about a
week, Stacia says the whole ordeal
has cost her hours of telephone
calls and several letters to prove to
her creditors she'd been fleeced by
ID fraud.
"I've got everything straighten-
ed out, but believe me, it takes a lot
of time out of your schedule," said
Stacia, who cominutes daily to a
San Marco pharmacy and works
part time for a Southside physi-
cian.
Her lesson? She's switching
over to on-line banking for credit


card and installment payments,
and since account activity is readi-
ly accessible online or via ATM
machines, she's going to keep a
closer watch on the inflow and
outgo of money.
"Trouble is, everything moves
so fast, by the time you figure out
what's happened it's too late.
These people work fast in my
case they cashed all those checks
in one day.

The three reportedly fingered
Mr. Nixon, who was arrested July
15 for murder, kidnapping and

After confessing to Jacksonville
police, he led JSO homicide inves-
tigator Dennis Sullivan, Baker
County Sheriff Joey Dobson and
Chief Chuck Brannan to the cou-
pie's bodies, which were buried
near a hunting camp off Stokes
Road in Georgia, a few miles
north of Baker County.
Mr. Nixon said he and his ac-
complices had dug the graves a
couple of days before they kidnap-
ped the Sumners. The plan was to
scare them into.giving up the PIN
to their ATM card.
Investigators said the couple,
both in poor health, were forced
into the trunk of their car at gun-
point, driven to Charlton County
and buried alive.


Shorstein said that under Flori-
da law, the heinous nature of the
crime and the apparent "cold, cal-
culated premeditation" with which
it was conducted allow prosecutors
to seek the death penalty.

The suspect entered the restau-

the week before. The burger, he
told store manager Charity Givens,
had a piece of plastic in it.
The manager denied the refund
because the bag contained only a

Richard and Karin Rewis, a lo-

The Tree Steakhouse: pricey


but quality, atmosphere tops


BY BOB GERARD
Features and Commentary
I've always heard that The Tree
Steakhouse is one of the places to
go in Jacksonville if you want
great steak in a nice atmosphere,
but before last weekend I had nev-
er been to the venerable area land-
mark. It's everything it's cracked
up to be.
The Tree has loads of atmos-
phere and the waiters treat you
very well. You can tell when you
enter the door that it's a cut above
most eateries. One clue is that the
patrons are dressed a little better.
The Tree is more pricey than many


restaurants and is a place people
go to celebrate special occasions
like birthdays and anniversaries.
It is dimly lit with the look of
an English hunt club. There are
hunting prints on the ivy green
walls, deer and game birds on the
walls. If it weren't a restaurant, it
would have an "old boy's club"
feel to it.
This is a place that encourages
conversation. The tables are roomy
and there are no televisions on the
walls beaming baseball and pre-
season football.
The Tree has a dim piano bar if
you want to stop in for a drink or
are waiting for a table to come


Bananas by the bunch in Nellie's yard
Nellie Farris of Macclenny poses with this hearty bunch of hybrid bananas growing on a
tree aside her residenceeast of town off US 90. With her is caretaker Carson Brooks who
lives on the property. Ms. Farris said the banana tree has been there at least 20 years, and
she doesn't recall a fruit yield quite like the one in this photo. Past harvests have been made
into banana pudding, she noted, adding she is not sure why the bunch this summer grew to
the impressive size that it did. It is the only bunch produced by the tree.

available. It's a nice toucn and
gives the restaurant a more formal
ambiance.
But what really makes The Tree
stand out is the food. From the loaf
of puffy, freshly baked bread to the
choice of salads, the place is first
rate, I visited the large salad bar,
though I could have chosen from
among three other salads. I'm not
really a salad eater, but I enjoyed
the variety of choices on the-salad
bar.
If your name is The Tree Steak-
house, naturally you specialize in.
steaks. I usually don't order steak,
but it seemed a bit ridiculous not
to try the specialty of the house.
The Tree has a large variety of cuts
of meat and I ordered an 11-ounce
prime rib, while my wife had a
nine-ounce rib eye. The rib eye is
the restaurant's prime cut, the
steak that has earned its reputation,
so I definitely wanted a bite of my
wife's meal.
The kitchen is open. to view, so
Sou can watch your steaks being
grilled. My prime rib was large
and succulent and was swimming
in au jus. I also had a side of garlic
nlashed potatoes, so I settled in to
some serious comfort food.
I was not disappointed. The
prime rib was delicious, very thick
and juicy. I'm usually only so-so
about prime rib. There's some-
thing about the texture that I don't
really enjoy. But the taste out-
weighed that.
The garlic mashed potatoes were
also very good and the service ex-
cellent. The waiter had a good
sense of humor and kept our tea
glasses filled.
To top off the meal, I had coffee
and a terrific slice of bread pud-
ding in a white chocolate glaze. It
was the highlight of a good meal.
I enjoyed The Tree Steakhouse
and it is definitely somewhere I
will want to go again for a special
occasion. It's is located on San Jo-
s6 just over the Buckman Bridge.

Urging less
power usage
after hurricane
Floridians are being urged to re-
duce their electricity usage follow-
ing a state-wide generating capaci-
ty advisory from the Florida Relia-
bility Coordinating Council.
Natural gas production facilities
in the Gulf of Mexico were shut
down because of Hurricane Katri-
na, creating uncertainty in the de-
livery of natural gas to generating
facilities in Florida.
Seminole Electric Co-op, which
supplies wholesale power to Clay
Electric and nine other electric co-
ops in the state, reports experienc-
ing natural gas supply cuts. Semi-
nole is currently using No. 2 fuel
oil at its generation facilities that
normally use natural gas. Semi-
nole officials say they have ade-
quate supplies of oil on hand to
meet short-term generation needs.
Up to 35% percent of the elec-
tricity generation in Florida de-
pends upon natural gas as a prima-
ry fuel. Assessments to determine
the extent of damage to the natural
gas production facilities in the
Gulf of Mexico are underway.
Air conditioning is one of the
largest users of electricity around
the home. The easiest way to re-
duce air conditioning run times is
to adjust the thermostat up a few
degrees (for example, from 75 to
78). Users can maintain higher
thermostat settings until the call
for energy conservation has ended.
Some other conservation tips
that can help lower energy con-
sumption:
If no one is home during the
day, raise the A/C thermostat to 82
degrees or warmer. Change the
unit's filter to help the unit operate
more efficiently.
Close blinds and curtains to
keep sunlight-out. Turn off room
air conditioners and fans when you
leave the room.
Reduce the use of non-essen-
tial appliances like dish washers
and clothes dryers, and limit their
use to periods other than during
the late afternoons and early eve-
nings. Turn off non-essential light-
ing. Reduce the run-time of pool
punips.

In Loving Memory
of
Russell 0. Hodges
"Russ"
Although it has been a year since you
went to be with our Lord, I still see your
loving and smiling face. I dearly cher-
ish and remember all the days you lived
with us, and when we went fishing
(even though you caught most of the
fish) Well, Jesus is a fisher of men and
chose to call you home. I just look for-
ward to the day we meet in heaven again
to sing praises to God together.
BEING LOVED AND MISSED BY YOUR
LOVING SISTER SHIRIEY
AND HER HUSBAND AND SON

In Memory
of
Vernon (Tom) Davis
3/24/1929 8/30/2004
A year has come and gone.
God took your spirit home.
It's so lonely around the old place.
We miss your smiling face.
Jesus knew you were going home.
So He took your spirit to the throne.
All we have to do is get right,
And then we all can see the light.
So rest our, dear dad,
We will try not to be sad
LOVE, WIFE, CHILDREN & GRANDKIDS

Council on Aging staff distribut-
ed emergency food packs on Mon-
day to all home-delivered meals
clients in preparation for any flood-
ing that might occur from the broad
band of rain accompanying hurri-
cane Katrina. Disaster rations were
also given to all congregate meal
participants at the Senior Center.
Although we still have a way to
go, caring people of Baker County
are beginning to volunteer to help
the Council on Aging deliver meals
to the elderly and disabled. Long
time volunteer Mary Covin, (re-
cently recognized by Channel 12's
Twelve Who Care), has been joined
by volunteers now fully .,manning
two of bur six meal routes and par-
tially filling in on others. Mother
and daughter team Diane Williams
and Melonie Long have adopted
one route. Other volunteers doing a
great job delivering meals are Lori
Dugan and David Dorman. Denise
lelona organizing a team from
the- Frs i'td Methodist Church
of Macclenny to adopt a five day
route, has no\\ been joined by fel-
low\ church members Barbara Cro%%-
ser and Nelson Mock. The COA is
appealing to other churches, par-
ticularly in the Taylor and Sander-
son areas, to follow the examples
being set to adopt a route.
The COA is also blessed by ded-
icated volunteer help in other areas,
Mary Snow routinely provides val-
uable administrative assistance for
service staff, and the kitchen counts
on the daily help of volunteers-Su-
sie Fralick and Ethel Canterbury.
During their August 25 meet-
ing,.Board of Director members got
to inspect a 20 passenger van like
that being purchased by the COA
with funding recently granted by.
the Florida Commission for Trans-'
portation Disadvantaged. Rivers
Bus Sales of Jacksonville brought'
the bqs and answered questions
from the board and staff.
S Last week's article erroneously
listed Mary Rouse as helping with
the Senior Activities'yard sale.
The senior who so generously gave
her time for this event was instead
Mary Recknor.
SENIORS' MENU
for the week of September 5-9
MONDAY: BBQ ribbette, potato salad,

West shoulders blame for loss

Says fake punt was wrong decision in 10-9 loss to Middleburg


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Sports
It was an odd game Friday night
when the Wildcats hosted Middle-
burg.
Neither team completed a pass.
Each scored all its points in a
single quarter Baker in the third,
the Broncos in the second.
And the coach blamed himself
for the loss.
It all added up to the Wildcats
losing 10-9 -in their season opener,
with a missed extra point account-
ing for the difference.
Coach Carl West, however, said
the turning point was when he call-
ed a fake punt with about six min-
utes left in the game and the Cats at
midfield.
S The Broncos stopped the play
cold and took over on downs.
Baker got the ball back with less
than two minutes to go, but was in
poor field position and unable to get
within field goal range. The last-
ditch effort ended with an in-
terception.
"I told the kids it was a bad call,"
West said. "We should have punted,
played for good field position and
maybe got a field goal.
"I told them,'I'll take the
blame.'"
West said he noticed that Mid-
dleburg lined up strong to the right
side, so he thought the left side
would be open.
He thinks the defense may have
been tipped off after one of the Cats
lined up %% wrong and West had to yell
out to reposition him.
Prior to the failed fake punt,
Baker's offense had shaken off a
sluggish first half to twice push the
ball deep into Broncos territory for
scores.
The first drive resulted in a
touchdown run by Dontay Johnson,
who rushed for 67 yards on nine
carries in the second half.
Johnson, along \N ith fellow .run-
ning back Eugene Murriell. sat out
the first half because of missed
practice time.
Jonathan Trippeit gained 38
vards-on six icafri es. -

Overall, the Cats had 124 yards
on the ground, but none through the
air. Holton threw three passes, in-
cluding an interception. West pass-
ed twice, one of which resulted in a
pass interference call against Mid-
dleburg.
The Broncos gained 219 yards,-.
all of which came from the running
game.
\ Baker's defense recovered three
fumbles.
Middleburg coach Rob Justino
said his team played well overall,
_..tt.wyould be working this week to
cut do\ n on the fumbles.


Jonathan Trippeti, /iho ran or 38 Yards against Middlcbury Fridav, is cut down.


"We were inside the 20 two oth-
er times, we should have put up
more than 10 points," the first-year
coach said. "I'm proud of our de-
fense, but the offense has got to fin-
ish drives."
He said the Broncos defense
held First Coast High School to 32
total yards in the two quarters they)
played in their preseason game.
After neither team scored in the
first quarter, Middleburg got a.
touchdown on a long run from
scrimmage.
Another long run.and a key pen-
alty at the end of the half enabled
them to kick a field goal to take a
10-0 lead.
After the Broncos' back punched
through the line of scrimmage:
around midfield, a Wildcats' defen-
der dove toward him and caught
him by the face mask.
The runner was able to break:
free and take the ball down near the
goal line as the Memorial Stadium
clocked showed all zeros.
The penalty, however, gave the
visitors another play, which they
converted into three points.
"Our defense played hard, but
the offense got off to a slow start,"
West said. "I challenged them at
half time."
It worked, as the offensive line
fueled an impressive third quarter
for the running game.
Unfortunately, the old football
adage about missed extra points
coming back to bite you, came back
and bit the Cats.
After Johnson scored to make it
10-6, the kick was wide.
The snap was good, and al-
though the field was a little wet, the
kicker didn't slip. West said it \\as
just one of those things. "Even the
pros miss those once in a while."
West said he was more frustrated
later in the quarter on the Cats' sec-


Lady Bobcats undefeated

BY LAURA. BETH BRINER
Press Sports .. ., .. .

The Baker County NMliddle School olleyball .
teams have been playing well so far this year.
In their Preseason Classic August 23 against
Lake City and Richardson, the A and B teams
both won.
"Our teams have show n improvement alrea-
dy," said head coach Allen Murphy.
The Bobcats also went up against Suwannee
and came out on top.
The stat book \wasn't kept at the games, so
scores and statistics are unavailable.
The Lady Bobcats on Team A this year are l
Jordan Yarborough,, Kari Crummey, Krista
Smith, Brittney Alford, Keri Pifer, Destiny De-
lapena, Lindsey Thompson, Megan Osteen, Kari
Harris and Ashley Holton.
,Team B is made up of Harli Livingston, Lau-
ren Nevil, Tori Paulson, Delaney Gaine.. Ashley
Stuhr, Lacey Alford, Ann Marie Byrd, Kristen *-
Bell, Laura Shuemate and Ta'kenya Ruise.
S Their next match is September 8 at home
against Fernandina Beach at 5 pm. It will be the
first conference game for the Bobcats. Destiny Delapena watches Jordan Yarbrough return serve vs. Suwannee


ond deep dri\e, vhich ended % ith a
field goal.
"The key was a bobbled snap...
we had to settle for a field goal in-
stead of a touchdown n."
That made the score 10-9.
Neither team threatened in the
fourth quarter, although on the last
dri e a good run by Holton put the
Cats near midfield needing only a'
field goal to win.
However, with the seconds tick-
ing do% n, Holton's desperation
fourth-do% n pass was intercepted.
West said -the passing game was
hurt by the weather and his quarter-
backs' inexperience.
"It was a wet game and these
were two young kids. They got hap-
py feet in the pocket. We had some
bobbled snaps and a busted play.
We tried screen passes that didn't
work.
"That's youth, that's inexperi-
ence."
With that in mind, West said he's
decided to go with senior Chris
Crews in the Cats' game at Brad-
ford County on Friday.
Justino also said inexperience at
quarterback crippled his passing
game..
"He's an Ilth grader, but hasn't
played quarterback since maybe
Pop Warner.." he said. "We called
about 10 pass plays, but he tucked
it and ran when he got even a little
pressure."
Asked for his opinion about the
Wildcats. Justino said he expects
them to "get things rolling."
"They've got the right coach....
The beginning of the season is
)tough, but there were two good
teams out there Friday."

New QB against Bradford

BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Sports i
It's only about two weeks into the season and the Wildcats will
see their fourth different quarterback under center this Friday against
Bradford County High SchooL. .
Senior Chris Crews, who had been converted from quarterback to
wide receiver this season, will be reconverted this week and is sched-
Suled to start against the Tornadoes, according to Coach Carl West
The change comes in the wake of the Wildcats not completing a
pass in their 10-9 loss to Middleburg last Friday.
Underclassmen Sterling West and Carlos Holton shared the pass-
ing duties, but were unable to get anything going.
They played because senior Craig Yarborough was hurt in the pre-
season Kickoff Classic. West replaced him, but didn't get a lot of
playing time because the varsity squad played just one half.
Coach West said Yarborough. who is on crutches, will be out 2-4
weeks,
In the meantime, Crews will step in.
"Coming into the season, we had a senior quarterback and I want-
ed to develop the younger guys," West said. "So Chris and I reached
a mutual decision to move him to wide receiver."
"Unfortunately, they haven't developed as fast as I'd have liked.
We need experience, and Chris can do the job."
Last year, Crews played behind Yarborough, who played behind
Kris Linster and Jonathan Woods.
West said, however, that Crews ran the scout team last year, as
well as this season. Scout teams run the opponent's offense for the
defense to practice against.

Last week, the Cats hosted the
Ridgeview Panthers, with the junior

match in straight sets, 25-12 and 25-
14.
The varsity didn't fare as well,
losing 3 games to 1 in the best-of-
five match.
Tn the JV match, the Wildcats
stumbled out of the gate and were
down, but came back to win.
They dominated early in the sec-


ond game, holding their opponents
to low numbers. At match point, the
girls allowed a slight comeback, but
regrouped to take the win.
Armoreda credits Dugger and
Samantha Briggs as strong hitters

Kallie Crummey.
Kendra Russell and Kayla Harris -
have been "superb" on their serves.

DADS COACHING-ON FIELD AND OFF


(From page one)
came through the program, but that
doesn't make it a piece of cake.
"It doesn't get any easier," West
laughed. "I learned some things
coaching Brooks, but it doesn't get
any easier."
Having a father as head football
coach isn't always rosy. Coach
West's biggest worry is that he
doesn't want to give anyone the
impression there is any favoritism
involved.
"People are always going to.
think that, so I have to lean a little
to the hard side. I told him, 'You'll
always be my son, but on the field
I'm your coach."'
Sterling West had the benefit of
being able to see how 'his father
dealt with his big brother, but it's
still tough. '
"He's talked to me about it,"
said the younger West. "He let me
know he had to be harder on me so
it doesn't look like he's playing fa-
vorites. He gets on to me just about
every day."
Pooh Lee feels the same way.
"When I mess up, I get yelled at
a lot, '-he said. "But he's been do-
ing that since I started plaN ing. I'm
used to it. I like it, though. I can
talk to him about things when I
need to."
As unusual as it may be for fa-
thers to be coaching their sons on
a ,high school football team, Ron
Lee has been coaching his son for
many years, but for Sterling West
it's a new experience.

West started playing football in
the fourth grade and went through
youth league and middle school
ball without having his dad as a
coach. That didn't mean he didn't
get a lot of advice.
"He would tell me to run this
way or that way," said West, who
only recently made the change
from running back to quarterback.
"It really helped."
Lee has been coached by his
dad since he was 6 years old.
."I've been coaching him since
he was on the Little League Gat-
ors," said the elder Lee. "It's ironic
because even then he wanted to
play for the Florida Gators."
Sterling West also would like to
be a Gator and grins when remind-
ed that his Dad started for, the
South Carolina Gamecocks.
"That's kind of funny," says
Carl West. "That's where I wanted
to go when I was in high school,
but I was down on Coach Doug
Dickey's depth chart and South
Carolina was persistent."
The two households deal with
football differently on the home-
front. In the Lee household there is
a lot of extra football talk.
".'We watch a lot of films at
home," said Ron Lee. "He watches
film of (ex-Wildcat standouts)
Cliff Green, Walter McCrary and
Kelly Williams, trying to learn their
moves."
"We're always talking foot-
ball," added Pooh Lee.
In the West house, they don't
talk much football.
"We'hardly talk about it at all at.
home," said Carl West. "When he
was younger and I wasn't his coach,
I'd try to teach him things, but
now that I'm his coach I want him
to know at home I'm his father,
and I don't want to give the im-
pression that it's all about football.
Football is way down the list. First
it's about faith, then family, then


academics and then football."
On the football field, both coach-
es have seen big improvements in
their sons' play.
Pooh Lee has made tremendous
strides since middle school. "His
size and strength as a sophomore
are unbelievable," his father said.
"He is up to 350 pounds in the
bench press and 500 pounds in the
squat."
Pooh added, "The weights make
me run harder. My dad wants me
to run over people."
Coach Lee can see the results.
"These last two years he's been
able to stiff-arm people or just
lower his shoulder and run them
over. At 5'10" and 212 pounds,
pretty soon defenders aren't going
to want to get in his \vaN and will
try to arm tackle him."
Sterling Westhas had a rougher
transition into high school ball. He
was a running back all through
youth league and middle school,
but was changed to quarterback
this season. Jt has been a difficult
transition for both father and son.
"He's still young and learning
his position. He needs to have a
-veteran iinfront of'him to teach'
him and show leadership."
At the start of the season, that
veteran was thought to be senior
Craig Yarborough. But Yarbor-
ough injured his knee playing de-
fense in the Kickoff Classic and
West had a sticky decision to make
as a father and coach. For the
opening game against Middleburg,
he played both of his young back-
ups, Carlos Holton and Sterling
West.
But then...
"I had to make a tough decision.
I moved Chris Crews, who was
our scout team quarterback last
year and was a receiver this sea-
son, into the starting role," said
West. "They'll both rotate in and
play quarterback, but they'll have

One of the problems with hav-
ing a coach for a father is that you
have to be careful what you say at
home. Pooh Lee is pretty closed-
mouthed about injuries because he
doesn't want his father to take him
off the field.
"He doesn't tell me, he tells his
mom and sometimes he doesn't
tell her," Coach Lee said. "This
summer he hurt his shoulder and I
had to find out about it from his
mom."
Both sets of fathers and sons are
quick to praise the role of the boys'
mothers.
"His mother gets all the credit
for raising Sterling," West said. "I
try to be the best father I can, but
this job takes me away a lot and
his mother has done a great job."
Said Pooh Lee, "My momma has
never missed one of my games."
Win or lose, both fathers are
bursting with pride seeing their
sons perform on the football field.
"It's just such a blessing for me
to see him out there," said Lee.
"I'm so proud of him because
of the kid he is," said West.

Financial contributions are
preferred: Cash donations help to
avoid the labor and expense of
sorting, packing, transporting and
distributing donated goods, and
voluntary relief agencies can use
cash to meet hurricane victims'
specific needs more quickly.

nd great goods should be made only to
more of agencies that have requested spe-
Scific items.
Confirm the need Before col-
lecting: Donors should be wary of
ING anyone who claims "everything is
)NDAY needed." Many groups have been
disappointed that their efforts and
Sthe good. they collected were not
appreciated. A community hit by
ay disaster, however, does not have
the time, manpower or money to
S dispose of unneeded donations.
Get precise information and con-
firm the need before collecting any
donated goods.
Volunteer wisely to help oth-
ers: In a community struggling to
respond to and recover from a dis-

tions can make the process even
more difficult. Before traveling to
the disaster area to help, learn
where, and when your skills will be
