SchoolBoard balks


on qualification list


for superintendent

Prefers to make them 'desirable'


The Baker County School Board
said in effect this week "no dice" to
a bid by the administration to set
minimum qualifications above
those required by the state for the
job of school superintendent.
The Board appears likely to fa-
vor insertion of the adjective "de-
sirable" before any such verbiage,
and the matter was tabled the eve-
ning of September 19 until a later
date.
Superintendent Paula Barton and
her assistant Glenn McKendree
both used the phrase "raise thebar"
as justification for proposing a
higher base line of qualifications.
Among them are certification in
educational leadership and mini-
mum of seven years experience, in-
cluding five years in "a site-based
leadership position."
It \\ wasn't immediately clear what
that last phrase means, but likely 'it
would be interpreted as a school
principal.
"I don't see how we can impose
qualifications that the state does-
n't," reasoned first-term Board
member Karen McCollum. "How
can we say they (candidates who
fall short of the minimums) are not
qualified for the job?"
Her sentiments were echoed by
members Dwight Crews and Dean
Griltl.
"1 don't necessarily have a prob-
lem with it, but I see a problem
with it," explained Mr. Crews.
"What if a businessman decided
to run and he had all the other qual-
ifications. Would he be a bad can-
didate?"
Mr. McKendree, an associate su-
perintendent who is in charge of
personnel for the school district,
said earlier that adoption of the


hursday September 22, 2005 Macclenny, Florida 500


new criteria "won't disqualify any-
one from going down and picking
up (qualifying) papers (to run for
superintendent.)" ''.
"All of these mirror what we are
requiring now of our educational
leaders (administrators)," stressed
Mr. McKendree. "We feel it's the
sensible thing to do."'
He described the proposal as
"making a statement" of what the
district expects in a superintendent
and "a little fast-forward thinking."
Ms. Barton initially said little
about the change, turning the floor
over to Board counsel John Caven,
who explained that members have
broad statutory authority to set goals
Sin this area and others. "
"These are desired attributes (for
a superintendent). You could say
these are desired qualifications."
Member Dean Griffis took that
suggestion and ran with it, vowing
he could support the qualifications
-with that word inserted beforehand.
"I don't want the public to per-
ceive that we're overstepping our
authority here, and I don't %want to
preclude anyone from running for
superintendent," said Mr. Griffis.
Ms. Barton after the meeting
discounted any suggestion that both
the timing and content of the pro-
posal were politically motivated.
SlIc hia, notI iidicjatLCdJ hctheI she
will be a candidate for a fourth
term in 2008.
Likewise, no candidates have
come forward as potential challen-
gers, or if Ms. Barton decides to re-
tire, to replace her.
"I just wanted to put in words
exactly what I do, exactly the way
things are with the job," she said,

This ironic juxtaposition of

weekend's Ciril War Expo
at the Ohlstee Battlefield in
west Baker County.
Actually, Tom Rachal of

Coolto a full timechief, extrapay


Baker County is surely going to
the dogs as the result of a decision
by county commissioners at their
meeting Monday night.
There \\as no bone of contention
when they cleared the %way fora pet
resort to be built on CR 229 near
Mud Lake Road.
Tina Daugherty said she is work-
ing on getting financing for what
she'll likely call the Lazy Pines Pet
Resort.
SShe hopes to have everything in
place to begin building the facility
within six months.
"It will be a spa for animals,"
she said Tuesday. "I want to have
an obstacle course, a swimming
pool and later on some nature
trails."
Grooming services will also be
available for pets who are boarded
there, "for after they're out playing
in the mud," Ms. Daugherty said.
She says the resort will accom-
modate 10 dogs and four cats.
The animal guests will have pri-
vate suites and gourmet meals, she
told commissioners.
They will be allowed "supervis-
ed 'social" interaction with other
guests if their owners so choose.
Pet spas, as well as pet parks, are
a rapidly growing industry, al-
thoughleoeal-y there is only o'ne
other pet boarding facility listed in
the phone book.
Ms. Daugherty asked the county
for a special exception to the zon-
ing classification of her 18.6 acres

6 89076 48819 8


east of CR 229.
The zoning prohibits kennels al-
though it permits private stables
and vet clinics, which include
boarding.
The resort is planned for the
middle of her property.


Two officials made last ditch ef-
forts to get projects back into the
Baker County Commission budget
during the first public hearing Sep-
tember 15.
There were no citizens present
to hear Chairman Julie Combs ask


to immediately make the county
fire chief position full-time instead
of waiting until April 1, and Coun-
ty Manager Jason Griffis seeking
$2000 salary hikes for employees
completing the certified manager
course.


Neither got support from the
three other commissioners present
as the board voted to approve a
$21,937,468 budget and the 8.96
mill levy that will fund $5.2 mil-
lion or about one fourth of it. Com-
missioner Alex Robinson was ab-


Single-car accident near Sandersonclaims life of Nebraska woman
Brenda Kohout, 47, of Omaha died later of injuries received September 16 when 'she was ejected from a carthat went airborne after crossing the median of I-10 about three miles
west of Sanderson. This 2004 Chevrolet driven by Linda Lillibridge, 48, ofJacksonville was eastbound in the passing lane around 12:25 pm when it crossed the median and struck a
concrete bulkhead and became airborne, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. While in the air, the car turned over before the left rear hit the ground and flipped over two or
three times, ejecting Ms. Kohout onto the median. The car came to rest on its passenger side in the passing lane of the westbound lanes. Both women were flown to Shands Jackson-
ville. Trooper David Wright of Macclenny is shown above inspecting the interior of the vehicle; note backed-up traffic on the interstate.


sent from the hearing.
Actually, the county budget is
$920,850 lower than the "official"
figure. Before any spending is cal-
culated, $69,665 is lopped off the
top for the Health Department,
which this year gets .12 mill.
Then there are three transfers
from general revenue: $663,076 to
the fine and forfeit fund, $55,590 to
the fire department, $10,950 to
emergency management. All three
figure into the overall total, in ef-
fect getting calculated twice.
So the real spending total comes
to $21,086,283.
Chairman Combs opened the half
hour hearing with a request to put a
full 12 month salary into the fire
department budget, even if Chief
Richard Dolan does not go to full
time until mid-fiscal year.
"I'm concerned about how fast
the county is growing. I feel this is
not jist a good thing it's necessa-
ry," Ms. Combs said:
"I made the recommendation for
mid-year because we're in a deficit
budget. But there are two 'or three
issues he could work on: the ISO
rating for home insurance rates, the
status of stations, getting certified
.as fire marshall," said Manager
Griffis.
Commissioners Gordon Crews,
Mark Hartley and Fred Raulerson
said they want to see the list of du-
ties and a job description before ap-
proving full time status.
"We need to know how long it's
going to take him to become certi-
fied as'fire marshall," Mr. Rauler-
son added.
"And I'd like to see what he's
going to do and how it will benefit

impact


fees for


singles?

Versus houses in
large developments

The Baker County Commission
is set to approve a $1500 impact
fee at its next meeting, but in the
'meantime its attorney will investi-
gate whether the ordinance can be
re-jiggered to allow common sense
to triumph over legal sense.
Terry Brown said at the commis-
sion meeting Monday night there
might be a legal way of differenti-
ating between large de% elopers and
property owners who just want to
build single-family homes for
themselves or their children.
As it stands, the $1500 impact
Sfee would be assessed to each resi-
dential unit no matter what the
size and payable when the build-
ing permit is applied for.
There is a separate fee schedule
for non-residential units, ranging
from $150 per 1000 square feet for
day care centers to $2250 per 1000
square feel for commercial retail
buildings.
Impact fees are a way to have
new development pay for the addi-
tional infrastructure and services
needed to accommodate it.
The coum. 's ordinance calls for
the fee to be used for transporta-
tion, but impact fees also may be
used for laiv enforcement, emer-
gency services, fire protection, and
parks/recreation.
The county is likely to enact a
separate impact fee for education,
but is waiting for the school board
to propose an amount. The board is
not empowered to pass its own or-
dinance.
Until Monday night, apparently,

Council on Aging staff will be
involved this month and next in an
Outreach campaign to identify se-
nior citizens in need of services.
The COA provides a wide vari-
ety of services funded by federal,
state and local government pro-
grams. Principle services include
congregate and home delivered
meals, educational and recreational.
activities, transportation, home-
making, personal care, respite,
emergency alert response (lifeline),
and case management. Services
may have waiting lists, a fact that is
very frustrating to anyone'with im-
mediate needs. But because fund-
ing is often distributed statewide
based on waiting lists, the COA has
to know how much additional ser-
vice is needed before more funding
will be granted.
Current outreach efforts will tar-
get the very frail elderly who are in
need of two or more services but
do not have adequate resources to
pay for the services. Referrals can
be made to the COA for a case
worker to visit in the home to de-
termine if the COA can help pro-
vide needed services.
For more information on any of
the COA programs or services, or
to refer someone who may need
services, call 259-2223. Council on.
Aging staff will also be happy to
schedule a time to meet with
church groups, clubs or other orga-
nizations to inform them about ser-
vices and resources available to
Baker County seniors and volun-
teer opportunities available at the
COA.

comment

Developers of a major subdivi-
sion planned west of Glen. St.
Mary want to include commercial
development that is "too intense"
under current land use guidelines,
according to the Northeast Florida
Regional Planning Council. .
The council's staff recommend-
ed the Baker County Commission
deny the developer's request for an
amendment, according to Amanda
Smith, a staff member of the coun-
cil:
However, Ms. Smith told the
commissioners Monda. night
there is a need for a land use cate-
gory that would allow a "rural vil-
lage," which integrates residential
subdivisions with commercial de-
velopment.
"While staff does. recognize the
need for some rural commercial
uses at or near this location for the
surrounding area, the Comprehen-
sive Plan does not provide for any
uses with such intensities," ac-
cording to the planning council's
recommendation.
"Staff suggests that the county
examine the possibility of devel-
pping a rural land use category
that would promote the clustering
of housing and commercial devel-
opment while preserving greater
open space."
She advised the county com-
mission approve transmittal of the
proposed amendments to the Flori-
da Department of Community Af-
fairs,'even though the commercial
amendment was denied.
She said the DCA would pro-

At one point, they were dis-

led them to scale back.
Commissioners were cool to
Mr. Griffis' suggestion and
seemed eager,to move forward.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday September 22, 2005 Page Three


I've helped write county'shistory, one week a time..


ON THE

RECORD
. *, t '. ,- I .,. .


For nearly 30 years, I have
helped write Baker County's histo-
ry a week at a time as it happen-
ed.
But as for all of us lucky enough
to live that long, it has come time
for me to retire.
I've been headed that way for a.
couple of years, but the main im-
petus came when I found the per-
fect place for me a block from
the beach inDaytona Beach.
Daytona has been "home" to
me from the time I saw my first
palm tree and the wide white san-
dy beach. We moved there from
the rolling hills and mountains of
North Carolina when I was 13.
I have since lived in 16 homes
in seven cities. But at least partly
because of my in-laws, Datonia
has been "home base" all these
years.


My children and their two cou-
sins feel the same way, I found out
during my father-in-law's funeral a
year ago. They are all Navy brats
who reminisced about looking for-
ward to visiting Gay and Gop, who
had a great front porch
that caught a lovely
breeze most any time
of day and especially
in the evenings, a lush
big lawn, and a five
minute ride to the
beach.
We settled in Mac- ,
clenny in 1974. So
I've lived here longer
than any other place.
My son Terry and
daughter Lisa graduat-
ed from Baker County
High School.
And I've enjoyed my time here,
especially the relationships formed
while working at The Baker Coun-
ty Press. It has been interesting to
watch the county grow and im-
prove. We've all come a tremen-
doi sly long way from the days
when a county commission meet-


ing might consist of hours-long
wrangling over whether it was a
cattle gap or a bridge..
A bridge was. a legitimate pub-
lic expense, whereas a cattle gap
was the property owner's responsi-
bility to keep his live-
stock off the road.
Many a politician's
ability to stay in of-
fice depended on con-
vincing the other
board members his
relative or buddy de-
'IH served a "bridge."
Discussion on
many boards was
long, involved and
often strayed far from
the original topic -
and the gist could of-
ten be distilled into a
couple of paragraphs.
We sometimes didn't distill too
much, because,it was often very
colorful!
Macclenny and Glen St. Mary
meetings were less intense, and
there were far fewer subsidiary
boards back then..


Perhaps the most intense new-
comer was the New River Solid
Waste Association in the early
1990s when it was still in the early
planning stages amid a flood of
NIMBY (not in my back yard)
protests that included some out-
right lying by opponents of a
three-county shared landfill.
It ultimately passed and has
been successful well beyond ex-
pectations, with member counties
getting rebates on already low per
ton tipping fees.
To prove how history repeats it-
self, one of this year's hottest front
page topics was another proposed
landfill, supposedly to be only for
construction debris, in Baker Coun-
ty's southwest county.
Neighbors managed to quash
this proposal which proponents
said could have brought the county
up to a million dollars annual reve-
nue.
But .those battles were skirmish-
es compared to what the county is
now facing a mammoth develop-
ment spree that can create either a
dream community planned and


guided by government officials
With lots of citizen input, or a
nightmare of build-and-run subdi-
visions that will bring little reve-
nue compared to the cost of the
services required.
If I can leave you with one rec-
ommendation, it is to keep inform-
ed of what's going on not just in
your immediate neighborhood, but
throughout the county.
You may not be too concerned
about a large subdivision miles
away from you, but consider, that
500 new homes could at a conser-
vative estimate:
Put 1000 extra cars on the main
highways, tearing up the roads
quicker and vying with you for
parking spaces at the grocery store.
Add 1000 children to the school
system, often not in a mix that
would justify construction of a
particular grade level new school -
and thus may return portable class-
rooms.
Bring perhaps $500,000 annu-
ally in new property tax revenue -
but cost $1.9 million for new ser-
vices. This.comes from a recent


study by the Northeast Florida Re-
gional Planning Council that con-
cluded residential development
costs up to $3.83 for services to
every $1 in ad valorem income.
And that's just the impact from
one conservative size subdivision;
there are several many times that
size in the planning stages. For in-
stance, there are up to half a dozen
proposals in the "Development of
Regional Impact" category, for
which the threshold is 625 homes.
Be aware be very aware!
In closing, I'm particularly
touched that so many people say
they'll miss me but are at the
same time happy for me that I
have this opportunity.
I'll always be interested in Baker
County after all, it's been my
home for more than 30 years and
will continue to follow the commu-
nity's progress via a subscription
.to The Press. I'd also love to hear
from anyone who wants to stay in
contact; e-mail me at szanton@-
bellsouth.net.


IMPRESSIONS
II Y

If it's your habit to read the top
of the page first; you already know
that Nancy Szanto has decided to
call it a career. She's retiring.
She's been with us three de-
cads. That's over'1500 issues'-and
1500 sometimes hectic deadlines.
That also meant literally thou-
sands of hours sitting in govern-
ment meetings and thousands more.
writing up w hat happened there.
School boards, county commis-
sions, city commissions, landfill
boards, town meetings, etc.
She covered them all.
Local government was Nancy's
specialty. She didn't much care for
feature writing, police reporting
ind photography. On the produc-
tion side, she brought unequalled
spelling and grammatical skills to,
the proofing board.
She also takes with her a first
Class organizational mind, an atten-
tion for detail and a loyalty to this.
publication that will be difficult to
duplicate.
Nancy did the kind of "nuts and
bolts" work these 30 years that tru-
S ly falls under the generic term "ser-
vice to the community."
She gave you the readers the in-
formation you needed on how your
elected and appointed government
was operating. She couldn't control
what you did with that information,
but Nancy, like other journalists,.
subscribes to the Jeffersonian prin-
ciple that people will ultimately
make the right choices if they are
given sufficient information.
That's where the public service
comes in.
.Government reporting is often
also a thankless task. For the tedi-
um and concentration it takes to get

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


I've been looking with interest
at some of the things going on in
the country. The president has ap-
pointed some dude for Chief Jus-
tice of the Supreme Court and.
some 6ther FEMA dude is in all
sorts of hot water over his handling
of the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
Since I'm the kind of who al-
ways wants to be helpful, I would
be willing to throw my hat into the
ring if President Bush needs me to
step in and take over either of these
two pFusti;un.,,Grjie i, I.viny.not
be as qualified as 'the other appli-
cants, but feel I can bring real life
experience to the job that people
who have spent all their life in gov-
ernment or on the Capital Beltway
cannot.
I would make an excellent choice
for Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court and am urging all my friends
(both of them) to e-mail the White
* House to that affect. I may know ab-
solutely nothing about the law, but
looking at lawyers and judges, some-
times the decisions they. make caus-.
es me to wonder if they have any
more knowledge of the law than me.
Here are sore of my qualifications:
For one thing, I look pretty good
in black. It has a nice slimming ef-
fect and I definitely am in need.of
slimming.
Also, the idea of sitting around
all day in a robe really appeals to
me. If chips, a big sweet tea and a
remote control are also involved,
then this job is definitely for me.
I make quick and decisive choic-
es. When I am asked in the grocery
store if I want paper or plastic, 1
don't hem and haw, I don't vacil-
late, I come out with a firm, "Paper,
please," without a moment's hesita-
tion. That kind of decision making
process is vital for a Supreme Court
justice.
Row vs. Wade. This is a really
hot button topic and one that is di-
viding the country. Not me. I know
just where I stand on this divisive
issue and I believe I can bring the


t


gets little credit and often a lot of
vilification.
For every sincere person one
co ers in a beat like Nancy's, there
are clowns, bores and outright liars.
She had to sift through them, report
fairly (often the biggest challenge)
and suffer the fools. She also made
a lot of true friends and cohorts
while covering government.
Covering the..often ,routine busi-
ness of local government doesrq'i
lend itself to the "glamour" awards
given for investigative reporting,
but Nancy among working female
journalists has more than held her'
own when it comes to recognition
by Florida Press Women and Na-
tional Press Women.
Over the years, she won 190
awards for areas like continuous
and in-depth coverage of local gov-
ernment. You read that right 190.
I never heard. her boast about
that never heard her say much of
anything about that fact. But she
can take that back to Daytona with
her, knowing no one else, at least in.
weekly new papers, is,likely to
near that mark anytime soon.
When Nancy told us she was
leaving some two months ago, she
insisted it be kept under wraps.
That's.the way she wanted it.
But since the news has leaked
out in certain quarters, it's apparent
that the people who appreciate her
and what she's done for Baker:
County are out there all over.
They've wanted to organize go-
ing away events, present her with
plaques and platitudes. Nancy
shuns that kind of attention, though
we all know she appreciates the
thought.
It also speaks to the kind of
community that Baker County is,
and hopefully will remain.
.Best of luck, Nancy. You've
done a helluva job here, both for
this newspaper and for the commu-
nity.
All of:us will miss you.


country together through my "real
world" experience.
I can tell you now, without any
double talk, that'I would much
rather row than wade. You can get
places much quicker if you row
rather than wade. Besides, rowing
keeps you from getting all vet and
nobody wants to wade around in
the, surf all day when they can row
in a perfectly good boat. I think an
Evinrude motor or a Mercury
Black Max would be even better. In
fact, I think I'll scrap Row vs. Wade
for Evinrude, vs. Mercury.
Capital Punishment. I'm for it.
100% for it. I think all of those bo-
zos in the nation's capital need to
be punished for something or the
other. We may not know what they
did wrong, but they did something.
It's a lot like what your parents told
you when you were a kid and got
spanked for something your brother
or sister did.
"Count it as a spanking for
something you did and didn't man-
age to get caught." There you have
it. Another example of myforward
thinking judicial rulings.


Gun control. That's an easy one.
If you can't control your gun, you
shouldn't be allowed to have one.
Personally, I don't own a gunfbor
my own safety. If I owned a gun I
would shoot myself in the foot
within the first week. Either that or
I'd put a hole in the milkman or the
dog. So gun control is not for me.
The right to privacy' is another
controversial topic before the court.
I am completely in favor of the
right to privacy because I don't
have any.
I am a parent. A parent never
has any privacy. I guarantee you
that the moment I step out of the
shower and am naked and dripping,
somebody will need something out
of my bathroom. At any other point
during the day my bathroom would
be completely vacant, but if I have
to use it, it might as well be Grand'
Central Station. So I'm a big sup-
porter of the right to privacy.
If the president is set on this
John Roberts dude' and doesn't
want to give me a chance, then I'm
willing to throw my hat in the ring
as the head of FEMA. I could han-


die the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency better than that
weasely-looking guy they've got
doing it now.
I know his problem. He's not
married. If he were married, he
would be able to take care of this
stuff.
Crisis management. Heck, when
you're married, everything that
happens around the house is a cri-
sis. No water? Crawl your butt un-
der the house, bang on some pipes
with a pair of channel locks. It
might not fix the water issue, but at
least your wife thinks you're doing
something useful.
Getting funds to people who
need it. Im a parent. Somebody is
always coming to me with their
hand out. "I need a check for tui-
tion." "I need gas money." "I need
a check for lunch money." "I need
to buy this new Coldplay CD."
Believe me, I know how to distrib-
ute money to the needy.
As you can see, I am the dude
for thejob. Either jobi If you agree,
then be sure to send that e-mail to
President Bush.

the county," agreed Mr. Hartley.
In earlier workshops, the com-
mission agreed the fire chief posi-
tion will start at $40,000 annually,
and approved half that amount for
the fiscal year starting October 1.
The discussion led Manager
Griffis to declare, "This process is
going to be structured next budget
time; Ms. Combs has suggested
we insist on having the audit by
January and we need to look at
it.
"Then we need to let the consti-
tutional officials submit a lump
sum budget request,, after we set a
percentage increase amount. If we
set 5% and they stay below that,
fine; if they want 6%, they'd have
to come to us."
His reference was to elected of-
ficials, who already have the right
to appeal to the state if they feel


the commission unfairly restricts
their spending.
As for the audit, the submission
has crept later each year. For in-
stance, the latest report was not re-
ceived until early August, nearly a
year after completion of the 2003-
04 fiscal year.
Mr. Griffis likewise got no sup-
port of his renewed request for sal-
ary increases for 13 employees
who completed the certified mana-
ger course.
"We've been giving $2000 sal-
ary increases for two week certifi-
cation courses. This was a two
year course and these people com-
pleted it in nine months," he said.
The board instead approved bo-
nuses of $1000 this year and next;
the money does not accrue on the
employees' total salary.
Final adoption of the millage
and budget are scheduled for the
October 4 commission meeting.


School Board balks


Trading sex for drugs, cash?


The sheriff's department says it
will investigate allegations that a
30-year-old Macclenny man is
trading money and drugs for sexu-
al acts with minor age boys.
The allegations arose after relat-
ed incidents last week. The eve-
ning of September 15, the accused
and two others were at a northwest
city residence when a neighbor
burst in and threatened them with
a pistol.
According to the statement they
gave to Deputy Erik Deloach, the
man said he'd kill them if his
younger brother had any further
contact with the 30-year-old.
The officer said all three com-
plainants were intoxicated at the
time and unable to relay further
information.
The next afternoon, the same
man was accosted by a 15-year-
old male who told police he struck
the 30-year-old in the face because
he believed the older man was
reaching for a weapon.
It was'the youth who informed
police the older man was trading
sexual favors for money and


drugs. He had gone to the same
Blair St. address to confront the
suspect.
A criminal complaint accusing
the boy of assault will be filed
with the state attorney's office.

In other matters handled during
the Board's regular meeting, the
district approved Thomas A Hill,

Westside Elementary, replacing
Sue Giles.
Mr. Hill comes to the job from
Baker High where he was a math

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS Thursday, September 22, 2005 Page Five


A partially dismantled drive-through menu station and landscaping are all that is left standing awaiting construction of a new Wendys.



Wendys will be rebuilt


In the end, they decided that re-
pair of a water-damaged roof at
the Macclenny Wendys just wasn't
worth it.
So they tore it down.
In the space of just a few short
hours on September 14, the restau-
rant on South 6th just north of the
interstate was down and hauled
away to a landfill.
It had been there only since
1998.
Chuck Satterwhite of Mac-
clenny, co-owner of the franchise,
is looking at early or mid-De-
cember as the opening date for a
new restaurant on the same foun-
dation. Pra-Con Construction of
Louisville, Ky will be the contrac-


tor, and the cost is expected to be
$650,000-700,000.
Wendys had closed in early Au-
gust for what then was to be a roof
replacement and remodeling, but
water damage on the trusses from
hurricanes last year turned out
more extensive than first believed.
"When they got in there they
found those trusses had been com-
promised. They couldn't hold the
weight of the heating and air con-
ditioning units, so razing the build-
ing was actually cheaper," said Mr.
Satterwhite, a local State Farm in-
surance agent.,
Insurance will cover the bulk of
re-building, and it will look essen-
tially the same as the former site.


The interior, however, will be
vastly different, and because of the
timing of the project, Macclenny's
store will be among the first 15 in
the United States re-fitted % ith the
"Founder's Package."
The Ohio-based Wendys is con-
verting stores over to the "fast ca-
sual" concept with softer lighting
and more upscale turnishings like
seating and booth separators.
The only store in this area like it
is the recently completed one at St.,
Johns Center on Jacksonville's
Southside.
The storm damage from last fall
resulted in excessive condensation
over the dining area at the old
store, and it had to be closed off on
several occasions.
"We're asking our customers to
be patient until we're up and run-
ning again," said Mr. Satterwhite.
"The response from the public in
Baker County has been great since
we opened back in 1998, and we
hope to be back in business as
quickly as we can."
He said major work will await
delivery of the trusses around Oc-
tober 1. ....'" *- .' i tr ; ,.,.


Two men are charged with the
theft of a $6000 Yamaha ATV
from a construction site north of
Macclenny in early September.
Joseph W. Crews, 18,,,of St.
George. Ga. was arrested after ques-
tioning at county jail on Sep-
tember 12, and alleged accomplice
Daryll W. Gatlin, 20, of Glen St.
Mary later that day.
Mr. Crews is an ex-employee of
Quality Land Clearing of High
Springs. owner of the ATV that
was recovered in damaged condi-
tion from an address off Davis
Road in Margaretta the day of the
arrests.
Deputy James Marker said a
company official suggested when
she reported the theft that Mr.

Hurricane Katrina's devastation paints a

grim picture of Biblical tribulation period


PENSEE
CHERYL PINGEL...

Katrina ransacked the Gulf
Coast region leaving massive dev-
astation and destruction in its
wake. Tremendous physical and
emotional tolls have been experi-
enced by all who have been affect-
ed by it: families separated and
"scattered from one end of the
country to the other, a whole city
uninhabitable, widespread eco-
nomic consequences.
- Preachers speculate as to the
cause: Is it nature or God's judg-
ment upon the country? We know
from the Bible that Jesus has the
power to calm the storm. We also
know He instructed us to be care-
ful how we judge. He had been
instructing the people and some
told him of a group of people who
Pilate killed and mixed their blood
with the blood of their sacrifices.
Jesus responded, "Do you think
that these Galileans were worse
sinners than all the other Galileans
because they suffered thus? I tell
you, No; but unless you repent you
will all likewise perish. Or those
18 upon whom the tower in
Siloam fell and killed them, do
you think that they were worse
offenders than all the others who
dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, No;
but unless you repent you will all
likewise perish." (Luke 13:2-5,
RSV) .
The Bible tells of a time coming
referred to as the greatest tribula-
tion the world has ever seen.
Regardless of Katrina's purpose
she has become an excellent
model, on a much smaller scale, of


what is to come. The Bible fore-
tells massive earthquakes and
meteor showers that will affect the
whole earth and terrify all leaders
of the world (Revelation 6:12-17)
It speaks of hail and fire mingled
with blood being cast upon the
earth with '/ of the trees being
burnt and all of the grass. It speaks
of the death of 'A;of the creatures
living in the sea and the destruc-
tion of 13 of the ships. It speaks of
the water and rivers becoming
contaminated, of insects torment-
ing humans with bites like scorpi-
ons, of disruption in the light from
the sun, moon and stars, of scorch-
ing heat. And it warns of a world
leader rising to power in the midst
of this chaos that will create even
more human suffering than already
imagined. (Matthew 24; Revel-
ation 6-18)
The Bible also reveals an
escape plan. We are told, the Lord


Jesus will gather all those living
and dead who believe in Him to
himself. Paul wrote, "For if we
believe that Jesus died and rose
again, even so them also which
sleep in Jesus will God bring with
him. For this we say unto you by
the word of the Lord, that we
which are alive and remain unto
the coming of the Lord shall not
, prevent them which are asleep. For
the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with
the trump of God: and the dead in
Christ shall rise first: then we
which are alive and remain shall
be caught up together with them in
the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air: and so shall we ever be with
the Lord. Wherefore comfort one,
another with these words." (1
Thes. 4:14-18, KJV)
SDo you have your escape plan
in place?

Cat baseball players invited


to play for 'showcase' team


Eugene Murriell carries the ball against Raines




Raines hands Cats




worst season loss


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Sports
The Wildcats found out first-
hand that when it Raines it pours,
as they fell 26-2 to a dominant Vik-
ings team Friday night at Memorial
Stadium.
The loss dropped Baker's record
to 0-4 overall and 0-1 in district
play.
Coach Carl West said it's the first
time he's ever started a season 0
Sand 4.
: knew we'd have to play a per-
fect game to beat them," Coach
West said. "I knew we had to score
points.. that we couldn't contain
them. I was hoping for some turn-
overs to maybe get some momen-
tum.
"The\ 're going 10 %in the district
- .naJdrmkc me.-no ir U s iatLs." -
Unlike their first three losses, all
of which were close, Friday's game
was out of reach early. Raines
jumped to a 13-0 first quarter lead,
then added another touchdown in
the second before the Cats' defense
got the team's only points with a
safety. The score at the half was 19-2.
In the second half. Raines (4-0,
1-0) scored just a single touchdown n
on a spectacular 46-yard broken-
field run by scatback Ray Dukes in
the fourth quarter.
"We've been pla ing good de-
fense in the second half this sea-
son." West said.
Dukes' touchdown was his third
of the game, the others coming on a
three-yard run in the first quarter
and a 47-yard run in the second.
It \ as at the end of the latter run
that Dukes made perhaps his only
misstep of the game, drawing a
penalty flag after taunting Baker de-
fenders as he crossed the goal line.
An incensed assistant coach
grabbed him as he came off the


field and screamed, "Don't ever
[freakin'] pull that [crap] again!"
Raines' other score came on a
seven-yard pass from quarterback
Bruce Robinson to tight end DeAn-
gelo Evans at the end of the first
quarter.
The diminutive Dukes accounted
for more than half the Vikings' total
yards, rushing for 173 yards on 14
carries.
"He's so small he can hide be-
hind-those big guys... and he has
the speed and quickness to break
big plays," WVest said.
:Raines gained 326 yards for the
game 259 yards on the ground
,and 67 yards passing.
The Wildcats, on the other hand,





from injury
The Wildcats got some good
news Tuesday when doctors
cleared senior quarterback Craig
Yarborough to play this week.
Yarborough began the season
as the starter, but suffered a leg
injury in the Cats' Kickoff Clas-
sicAugust 19.
In subsequent games, three
quarterbacks took turns under
center before the coaching staff
settled on sophomore Carlos
Holton.
SCoach Carl West, however,
said Yarborough will start against
Friday against Ridgeview High
School at Memorial Stadium.
"He's been running and
throwing on his own.. he knows
our system, so he should be
ready to go," West said, adding
That the offense will benefit from
Yarborough's leadership.


had just 128 total yards.
Quarterback Carlos Holton com-
pleted six of 26 passes for 23 yards
and threw two interceptions, but led
the team in rushing with 48 yards
on 7 carries.
"Carlos is slowly getting better...
he's young," West said. "We had
some underthrows, some over-
throws and a few dropped balls.
.."They had good coverage in. the
secondary and the\ ha e speed and
quickness up front.
"Our line blocked better, but had
some breakdownss"
Running. back Dontay Johnson
ran six times for 30 yards and caught
2 passes for five yards. He also
threw an incompletion on a halfback
option.
Wide receiver Gary Dugger had
one catch for 11 yards.
West edited safetN lNate Thrift for
his play against Raines. It was.
Thrift who was responsible for the
Cats' only score when he tackled a
Vikings ball carrier in the end zone.
"He plays with heart and deter-
mination week in and week out.
He'll give you 10 or more tackles
every game.
"He's an example' of the kind of
effort I want all my kids to give."
The Cats' next game is Friday at
home against Ridgeview beginning
at 7:30 pm.
The Panthers are 3-1, including
last week's 33-0 win over Middle-
burg, which beat Baker County 10-
9 at Memorial Stadium August 26.
Ridge- iew, w which runs its of-
fense out of the shotgun, will be the
first pass-oriented, team the Cats
have faced this season.
The advantage, according to
West, is that the Cats will be able to
focus on running one defensive
scheme, unlike the Raines game
where the Vikings used multiple
formations on offense.

Two Baker County players were
selected September 12 to play for a
traveling scout team.
Junior Adam Lewis and senior
Matt Wilson tried out at Santa Fe
Community College and Flagler
College for Des Hamilton and Ad-
am Souilliard, coaches for the Pi-
rates.
"There were about 75-80 kids
trying out," said mom Anna Lewis.
The candidates were divided into
four teams and played scrimmages
for the coaches, who chose 30 for
the team.
The Lewis family is no stranger
to the scout scene as Adam's older
brother Woody went through the
same type program. Woody played
at Embry Riddle and graduated a
year ago,

The creed of the North Central
Florida Scout team is to provide ex-
posure for the players and provide
parents the opportunity to get valu-
able contacts in the baseball com-
munity.
"I'm definitely making con-
tacts," Mrs. Lewis confirmed.

ball since he was five. He went

through the Baker County Little
League, and now catches for the
Wildcats.
The 6'2" 160 pound Wilson, an
infielder, also started as a youngster.
S"He's played since he was big
enough to throw a ball," said mom
Cherry. "'He's always watching
baseball, it's his favorite sport."
One of the coaches for the Pi-
rates saw a summer baseball game
with the Wildcats at Terry Parker.
He approached coach John Staples
to encourage the boys to try out for


the traveling scout team.
Staples recommended four play-


ers.
As for the future, Wilson is well
on his way to playing in college. He
has received a letter from the Uni-
versity of Florida, but is waiting to
further explore his options.
Both guys wish to pursue their
baseball career to its fullest extent.
S"We're looking to get drafted out
of high school," said Lewis.
Their first game will be Septem-
ber 24 in Clearwater.


Golfers get used to life on the road


BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports .
The closing of the Pineview Golf
Course has affected the Baker
Co~infy High School golf team, but
not as badly as it could have.
"Having to play all the matches
awIay has not had that big of an ef-
fect, but the lack of practice time
due to the inconvenience of not


having a home course has hurt,"
head coach John Staples said.
The team traveled to West Nas-
sau September 13 to play the War-
riors -.
It proved to be a successful one
because not only did the Wildcats
beat the Warriors 159-209, but also
came within seven strokes of the
school record.

It was a good weekend for the
state of Florida in college football.
All three major teams crossed big
hurdles on their way to a success-
ful season. But some questions
remain.
Florida had an outstanding win
against the Tennessee Volunteers
in Gainesville. The Gators went
into the game with the phrase
"Take back The Swamp" ringing
in their heads. They certainly did
that.
It was always clear this was not
a game that either team was going
to win in a walkaway. That's not
usual the modus operandi in
Gator/Vols games and it didn't
prove to be here.
I was impressed with Chris
Leak's poise under pressure and
with the Gator defense. They
didn't excel with the running
game, but that could have been the
fact that Tennessee has a strong
run defense.
I was disappointed that the
much ballyhooed Urban Meyer
offense didn't really light it up.
Meyer's Utah spread ,offense has
not looked a lot different that what
the Gators have been running in
previous years. I was hoping to see
more option play from Leak that
would highlight his mobility as a
quarterback, but they didn't run
much option. It could be that with
so much on the line they chose to
go conservative.
At least the Gators had an
offense. The Seminoles struggled
offensively yet again, waiting until
well into the second half to take
control over Boston College. I
knew that this would be a tight
game. Boston College is a huge
team with an offensive line that,
averages well. over 300 pounds
and has players that are 6'8" and
6'9". They pushed around the
Seminole defense through much of
the first half.
FSU got on the board early
thanks to a pair. of interceptions
and when the Eagles got back off
their heels and started to play ball
it was the defense that kept FSU in
the game. That seems to be the
pattern for this season.
Finally, offensive coordinator
Jeff Bowden realized that if the
Seminoles couldn't match up in
size they could in speed and
spread out the receivers.
That, and an injury to the Eagle
quarterback, did the trick.
If 1 were FSU, I wouldn't be
eager for this year's Bowden fami-
ly reunion against Clemson.
Miami needed three overtimes
to beat the Clemson Tigers. It's
amazing how some teams seem to
have the other's number. Clemson
won in overtime last year in the
Orange Bowl and only a lapse in
their outstanding defensive effort
allowed the 'Canes to runin un-
touched for the winning score.

Tips on encouraging your child's math and science skills


BY ROSE RENNEKAMP
ACT VPfor communications
What was your least favorite
subject in school? Almost four in
10 adults responding to a recent
AP-AOL News poll identified
math as their least favorite subject.
That's unfortunate. But what's
worse is that we may be passing
our aversion to math on down to
our children. Fewer than half of
2005 high school graduates who
took the ACT college admissions
test are ready for first year college
algebra classes.
The lack of math and science
skills in our students has business
leaders concerned about where
they will find future employees.
This summer, 15 national business
organizations, led by the Business
Roundtable, began a campaign to
improve math and science educa-
tion in America. A major concern
is a declining interesting careers
that require math and science
training.
That decline ig evident with ACT
test-takers. Over the past 10 years,
among students who responded to
a question about their plans for a
college major, fewer students each
year expressed interest in engineer-
ing and related technical fields.
What can you do to encourage
your teenagers, and even younger
children, to give math a chance?
Show them why they need it.
Have your young children measure
ingredients when you're making
cookies. It's a great way to under-
stand the practical application of
fractions. As they get older,.have

them help figure the grocery bill as
you shop. Then when they're old
enough, have them set up a sav-
ings account to learn about interest
and the value of compounding in-
terest.
You can also raise your student's
interest in science. When you
work on your next do-it-yourself
home project, include your teenag-
er. Seeing the physics of how a
deck is built, the chemistry in how
a paint solvent works, or the life
cycle of seeds that become flowers
and vegetables, can help them re-
alize how science works in their
lives.
Even if math and science aren't
your strong suit, you can look to
your local science, natural history
or children's museum. Many offer
classes that allow kids to get a
hands-on look at Earth science, ge-
ology and more. Some school dis-
tricts and libraries offer similar pro-
grams, especially over the summer.
Parents can also keep tabs on
what's going on inside the math
and science classes at school. Mis-
understanding just one concept can
frustrate students and keep them

from understanding the next les-
son. Encourage your student to get
extra help at school, if needed.
Many teachers set aside time at
lunch or after school for help ses-
sions.
Math and science are crucial to
many of the fastest-growing jobs.
Many jobs in healthcare, computer
programming and information


technology require a very high
level of math and science. Parents,
show your children the importance
of math and science from an early
age. Then, keep working with your
teenagers as they get to high
school and choose their courses.
Continuing in math and science
can open up many more career
choices for them down the road.

Motorist picked up drunk near


Baxter inspection station Saturday


A 26-year-old man who appar-
ently drove drunk as far as the
agricultural inspection station off
CR 127 near Baxter was arrested
for disorderly intoxication, and
later at county jail, for possession
of a crack smoking pipe.
Deputy Tony Norman said
Donald Smith, no address indicat-
ed, drove to the station and was
wandering in the area on foot
when the officer arrived. He
appeared disoriented when ques-
tioned just before 2:00 am on Sep-
tember 17.
A' routine search while he was
being booked at the jail turned up
the pipe in a pants pocket. Mr.
Smith faces an additional count for'
attempting to bring contraband
into the jail.
The arrest was one of several-
involving intoxicated suspects the


past week:
V Debra Murray, 48, was warn-
ed that same morning to remain
inside a North Boulevard resi-
dence in Macclenny, and was ar-
rested minutes later after ranting in
the neighborhood that someone
was eating her cat's food.
She is charged with disorderly
intoxication.
/ The following morning about
2:30, Matthew Green, 18, no ad-
dress indicated, was taken to jail
on a similar charge for breaking a
beer bottle at the entrance to the
BP convenience store in down-
town Macclenny.
The store clerk summoned pol-
ice after noting the license number
of a vehicle occupied by Mr.
Green and a juvenile aged male.
The suspect attempted to steal beer
after he was told he couldn't buy it


after 2:00 am.
Deputy Norman stopped their
vehicle east on US 90.
V Two hours later, the same
deputy arrested Jonathan Brown,
18, of Glen St. Mary for disorderly
intoxication after he found the sus-
pect staggering outisde the Kan-
garoo station across from the
county courthouse in Macclenny.
V Jamie Sigers, 28, of Macclen-
ny was found in the. same condi-
tion in the parking lot of Baker
Beverage downtown the evening
of September 14. She also alleged-
ly threatened another woman earli-
er that evening at city park.
V Dustin Rhoden, 19, was
found staggering along Mocassin
Circle in north Baker County the
afternoon of September 18, and
arrested by Sgt. Thomas Dyal after
speaking incoherently.


Prevents girlfriend from leaving


SA man is accused of beating his
girlfriend and preventing her and
her two children from leaving a
residence in Glen St. Mary the
night of September 14.
Charles Guernsey, 26, was ar-
rested later that day after Joanna
Young, 23, notified the sheriff's
department of the incident during
which she suffered a facial lacera-
tion.
She told police Mr. Guernsey
came home late the previous eve-
ning and acted abusive toward her.
He reacted violently when she at-


tempted to leave with the children,
and she fled the residence that
morning while he showered.
Ms. Young is six months preg-
nant. The boyfriend is charged
with domesticviolence battery and

A sheriff's investigator stopped
a vehicle occupied by two wonan
with outstanding warrants and
ended up arresting them for pos-
session'of merchandise stolen
from three area stores.

lied $343, according to Inves-
tigator Gerald Rhoden, who made
the arrest the evening of Sep-
tember 15 on King Drive in Mac-

issa Givens, 32, both .of the same
Glen St. Mary address, are charg-
ed with petty theft from Food
