Little has been done with the re-
port by Jonathan C. Mclntire,
Ph.D. since it was submitted in Ju-

on a future Board agenda.
Mr. Mclntire calculated high

"For two schools...with a total
student population of 2,350 to
have their students suspended from
instruction for 6,262 days in one
school year represents a tremen-
dous loss of learning time," stress-
ed the consultant.
He also noted that, based on da-
ta from the Department of Educa-
tion in Tallahassee compiled the
previous year, Baker County has a'
suspension rate 2.5 times the state
School Board member Karin
McCollum made reference to the
report during a workshop the
evening of September 26 during
which Superintendent Barton re-
viewed a lengthy, seven-goal stra-
tegic planning plan for the district.
Echoing Mr. Mclntire's recom-
mendation, Ms. McCollum urged
the district concentrate on "behav-
ior modification" techniques be-
fore resorting to suspension.
The district employs two types
of suspension for students who vi-
olate the conduct rules: in-school
normally supervised by non-certi-
,fied teachers, and out-of-school ei-
ther at the alternative school or off
school property altogether.
"Students who are not in class
learning effectively are not going
to perform as well on the FCAT!"
declared the consultant, adding the
exclamation point at the end of the

excessive absences compared to

'Great Strides'raises $11,000 for cystic fibrosis research
It was still a bit on the warmside for late September last Saturday as 65 walkers turned out for the 6.2 mile (10 K) Great Strides Walk
from Glen St. Mary's Celebration Park to Macclenny City Hall and back. In this group of four are Nancy Mason (right, back), mother of
cystic fibrosis patient Jeremy Mason, who was hospitalized last weekend and unable to walk. At left is 20-year-old Jonathan Howeli,
another victim of the disease. The Baker Countyv fund raiser was the last of a series in northeast Florida organized by the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation ofJacksonville. Spokeswoman Liza Wrobel said area schools pledged 55000 in addition to the 5 11,000 raised last week.

The 'unassuming' Emily
Shy BCHS senior has right modeling tools
BO sesItImo '
BY BOB GERARD
When you look at supermodels like Karolina Kurkova, Giselle Bun-
dechen or Cyntia Dicker, it's easy to
imagine they are, with their perfect
bone structure and flawless
skin, completely different
from normal girls that .
you see walking boy
around the malls.
Or in the halls
at Baker County ."
But that's a t
misconcep- z; :-A
If you picked up the Sunday Florida Times-Union and thumbed
through the special fashion section, perhaps'one of the faces looked fa-
miliar. BCHS senior Emily Coggin was featured in seven or eight pho-
tographs modeling casual and sophisticated fall fashions.
Once you got past the lovely clothes and the pretty face, what
jumped out of the photographs of Emily was a pleasantness and ap-
proachability not all of the models seemed to possess. When you get to
know Emily, her easy, almost shy manner is one of the first things you
notice:'She is one of the most unassuming fashion models you could
When you think of models, it is easy to fall into the trap of looking
at them as a high maintenance divas, full of attitudes and demands.
That's about as far from defining Emily as you can come.
Unless you saw her pictures in the newspaper, or had attended a
fashion show where the statuesque 17 year-old beauty walked the
runway, you would never know that she was a model. She certainly
wouldn't tell you. .
"Emily doesn't like being in the spotlight," said her mother Mel-
ody Coggin, the BCHS Athletic Director. "She would rather people
not know about it."
In fact, it was difficult to convince her to do this profile because
she doesn't like to draw attention to herself. It seems an inconsis-
tency when you think of the driven, ambitious models who Watch
every calorie to stay rail thin. ;
9) "For me it's just fun," said Emily. "I like the energy. It's fast-
pqced and you get to wear some high-dollar fashions."
Emily has been modeling for five years. She actually stumbled in-
to it. She was in a mall with her mom and was approached by Mary
Ann Angelloz, the owner of Sessions Modeling Studio.
Angelloz liked her face and the fact that she was tall. Being tall is a
real asset to a fashion model and even at a young age, it was clear to a
professional like Angelloz that Emily had all the right tools to be a
"She has a beautiful smile and has the height, presence and posture
of a model," said Angelloz.
"We thought it might be fun for her and help build her confidence
and self-esteem," said Melody Coggin. "We gave it try with beginning
classes which taught her about hair, makeup and diet."
Not long after that, Emily was modeling for Belk, Calvin Klein and
Gotex swimwear of New York. "The first swimsuit she modeled was

pany of several other persons who
were not charged. They were drink-

from the Citgo. Two cartons of cig-

were also found at the residence

"'It was our special time," said
Coggin. "Every Saturday morning
we'd drine into Jackson\ ille for
Emily's modeling classes."
Emily mo% ed into intermediate
and later professional classes. It
wasclear that she was getting bet-
ter but at one point Coggin ap-
proached Angelloz with an impor-
"I asked her if there would
come a point when we'd know if
she really had potential or whether
she'd just keep taking classes until
she got tired of it," said Coggin.
"Mary Ann told me to watch her
in the fashion show at the end of
the class and I'd know the answer
to that question. When I saw her
up there in the clothes and makeup
and hair, I knew. She looked like
she was having so much fun."
One of Emily's selling points as
a model is her personality. She is
hard working, professional and has
a great attitude. She frowns when
asked whether some of her col-
leagues are prima donnas.
"There are some models who .
have bad attitudes and are always
complaining. I've heard photogra-
phers say, 'I'll never work with her
again,' about some of them." ,
That won't be said about Emil y.
She is well liked by the photogra-
phers and fashion directors.
"One of the things that she
learned at Sessions was to come in
with a very professional attitude,"
shid Melody Coeigi6. "Slhe learned
right away that if'you're told to be
somewhere at a certain time, with
your hair fixed and your makeup
just so, that they expect you to be
on time arid ready. That was one of
the most valuable things that she
learned, and has carried over."
Emil\ is still learning with each
photo shoot. "The photographers
don't really tell you a lot. You
have to keep mo\ ing and giving
them different looks and they just
keep shooting." It took a while for:
..her to get a feel for how to feature
the clothes by turning a certain
way or assuming a particular ex-
Though it is usually 'fun, it isn't
always easy. "We did one of the
Times-Union shoots in January
and we were modeling s, im\\ ear.
I had to pretend it was 90 degrees
and sunny when I was standing in
a swimsuit freezing."
There can be glitches. At one
point Emily broke a $500 necklace
during a photo shoot. Surprisingly,
the photographer just wrote it off
as one of the hazards of the job.
Emily has been in the Times-
SUnion's fashion special forfour
years and is one of Sessions' top
models. She has walked the run-,
way in the Southern Women's
Show, The Cancer Society's Fash-
ion Show and in shows for Belks
and St. Johns Knits. -

Our sincere thanks goes to
everyone for the food, cards, flow-
S ers, prayers and other support to us
during Paul's long illness and
Special thanks to our pastors
David and Timmy Thomas. Paul
always loved your visits. And also
S we thank the whole CFT family
You left us two years ago. Oh, how
hard it was to let you go. You were so
brave. You had God's strength to take
you through. You were so humble and
smiled when I would be crying, know-
ing there was nothing I could do. You ,
touched so many lives. You wrote if I
live, I win for I will be with my family;
and if I die, I win, for I will be with Je-
sus. You were truly ready to go. Just
how many people are truly ready?
There's not a doubt in my mind that
you're not with our Heavenly Father.
You will be 45 on Thursday and all I
can leave you is a rose on your grave.
But you left behind a testimony that
maybe someone might be saved. You
loved God and when they say "out with
the old, in with the new, it was you all
over. You could see the. love you had
for God Rev. 21:4 And God shall wipe
away all tears from their eyes and there
shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
or crying, neither shall be no more pain
for the former things have passed away.
WE MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU,
In Loving Memory

Johnnie (Stump) K.
This has been a long. lonely year lor

Mount Everett in 21-7 loss
Ridgeie QB Joe Everett runs for 99 yards, one TD, passes for 154 yards, two TDs
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Baker County's passing offense
continued to sputter Friday night,
gaining just 28 yards in a 21-7 loss
to Ridgeview at Memorial Stadium.
Quarterback Craig Yarborough,
in his first game back from a knee
injury, completed four of 11 passes,
and threw one interception.
The senior signal caller was hurt
in the Kickoff Classic August 19,
and at times Friday appeared to be
favoring his leg.
"He's not totally 100 percent,"
said coach Carl West. "He's work-
ing on his conditioning... his knee is
probably a little weak.
"He was a little rusty, but we had
some key drops, some breakdowns
in pass protection."
Yarborough was the fourth Wild-
cats' quarterback to play in the
team's five regular season games,
which have all been losses.
Over that stretch, they've com-
pleted less than 30 percent of their
passes and are averaging about 50.
yards per game.
West, who would like to see at
least 150 yards passing per game,
said Yarborough is still the starter
and will get a lot of reps this week
"We need his leadership."
The Ridgeview (4-1) game was
won and lost at the quarterback po-
Panthers' junior Joseph Everett
turned in a Michael Vick-type per-
formance, passing for two long
touchdo% ns 57 and 50 yards -
and running 21 yards for another.
He completed eight of 16 for 154
yards, and threw two interceptions.
He ran the ball 10 times for 99
As a team, the Panthers gained
233 yards on 31 carries.
The Wildcats ran for 156 yards
on 31 carries. Luscious Lee had 69
yards on 11 carries, while Dontay
Johnson gained 66 on 11. Johnson
delivered several hard hits, both on
offense and defense.
Because Baker County empha-
sizes the run, West says he'd like to
see at least 200 yards per game on
The Cats turned the ball over
four times three fumbles in addi-
tion tothe interception.
"Fumbles kill you," West said.
"We'll keep teaching our kids how
to carry the ball, to get their shoul-
ders down and protect it."
Ridgeview scored first on an 89-
yard drive capped off by Everett's
57- ard touchdo\ n pass to Charles

OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD
It's certainly clear to me and
everyone who's watched Gator
football over the years that Urban
Meyer doesn't have the same type
of personality as Steve Spurrier.
That's not necessarily a bad thing.
In fact, it may actually be a good
During the Spurrier era at UF, if
the Gators had run up a 49-7 half-
time lead like UF did at Kentucky
on Saturday, the ol' ball coach
would have kept pouring it on. By
the end of the game'the score
would have by 82-7.
Meyer takes a different tack. In-
stead of endangering his starter in a
useless exercise in score inflation,
he put in his second team, then his
third. This gave them game experi-
ence that will come in handy down
Kentucky came back in the sec-
ond half and scored 21 points while
the Gators scored none. There was
grumbling from some Gators who
would rather have seen the 82-7
I don't go along with that. It's a
long.season and one thing that can't
be predicted or avoided are injuries
to key players. If Chris Leak or oth-
er starters were to be hurt next
week in the game against Alabama,
their replacements would come in
with game experience under their
belts, which is much more valuable
in the long run than running up 82
points on the Wildcats.
I am a Seminole fan, but) I have
been impressed with Urban Meyer.
I can't fault much he has done this
season with our hated rivals.
He's instilled a lot of discipline,,
both off and on the field. He doesn't
allow much fooling around and
talks a pretty good game about not
permitting the kind of infractions
that have been problems in the past
with many big-time college pro-
grams. He.sort of reminds me of the
college version of Denver Broncos

The drive began with 52-yard
run from scrimmage at the Pan-

bad snap pushed Ridgeview .back

down. The extra point made it 7-0.

Curtis Martin and made both Chad
Pennington and Jay Fiedler wish

The offense didn't look excep-
tional, but I liked the game plan of
running Fred Taylor to set up the

but it worked when it had to.
On another matter, it's driving
me off my gourd to hear commen-
tators talk about how old Jimmy
Smith is and how well he's playing
despite being 36. He's playing well
because he's Jimmy Smith and is
one of the top five receivers in the
NFL and has been for a decade.
He's never gotten the respect he de-
serves. If he keeps playing, as well,
as he has all season, it could cement
his Hall of Fame status.
And that was the problem, ac-
cording to West.

we drove down to the 30 but didn't

drove down to the 30 again, but we
