This season, however, has been
a different story.
"It's been a tough season," he
said. "I take losses hard. It takes a

"I don't commit myself to a lot
of stuff because I do things all the
way or not at all.
"I've always said that if I ever
lost my passion to coach, it would
be time to step aside."
West submitted his resignation
Monday morning to BCHS princi-
pal David Crawford.
"It's sad, sad, sad," Crawford
said. "It's been a long, difficult
season... the injuries, the losses,
disciplining the athletes. It's a

Coon hunters decry
road closmgs in the
Bethea State Forest
Local coon hunters urged county
commissioners Tuesday night to
pass a resolution supporting the
opening of dog hunting areas in the
John Bethea State Forest.

sociation was upset to find several
roads in the north county state pre-

preventing them from recovering

Apparently there was some diffi-
culty in getting in touch with the
appropriate officials, but County
Manager Jason Griffis was able to
contact an official from Suwannee
County, who made sure a couple of
roads were opened.
Jimmy Walker of Taylor pre-
sented petitions asking that the
roads be opened permanently..
He said of the 58,000 acres the
state purchased from Rayonier,

State officials closed the roads to
combat fire hunting because they
don't have the manpower to patrol
an area that large.
"Access is the key word for dog
hunting," he told the commission.
A state official said all roads will
be open for the hunting season, but
afterward state representatives will
meet with dog hunters to hash out a
He said in the end, however, the
state will close some roads.

Middle school burglars steal
safe with FCAT reward money
Burglars went to considerable trouble carting off a heavy floor safe from an office at Baker County Middle
School over the weekend, and along with it they unwittingly took $800 in FCAT reward money.
In all, the safe from the bookkeeper's office contained about $1200, according to Principal David Davis,
who discovered the ransacked offices and broken doors Sunday evening.
Some of it was being held for a school trip and the remainder for routine "petty cash" internal expenses.
The safe also contains small denomination gift cards redeemable at Winn-Dixie and Wal-Mart stores.
Entry was through double glass doors on the east side of the office wing, a fenced area that apparently was
Burglars used a metal chair leg to smash glass on locked officedoors, reaching inside to open them. Police
said scraping along the tile floor traced the route they used to push the safe down two hallways to a south
entry near the BCMS cafeteria.
Markings on outside concrete indicate it was dragged outside to a waiting vehicle.
The safe itself is valued at $500, and according to Principal Davis, weighs several hundred pounds.
"I know myself and another person tried to move it before, and it was too heavy," he recalled.
He said the school for several years has used cash and other rewards to motivate student performance on
the FCAT state standards testing.
"We try to do things to motivate the kids and all schools have a certain amount of leeway in deciding what
they'll use. Some use limo rides and movies. We use cash and gift certificates."
Last year select students received as much as $100, noted Mr. Davis.
The funds come from sources like the local foundation in the form of mini-grants. Awards are given both
to high FCAT scores and students who score well above what they did in a prior year.

Carl's eight years here at the
helm of Baker County's most
beloved sport (with the exception
of car racing, of course) were a dif-
ferent eight years than any similar
block in the piast..
Schools are expecting more of
athletes (they take the FCATs, too)
and football has lessened in impor-
tance compared to communities
like Lake Butler.
Athletes likewise have more
choices (and temptations) when it
comes to their leisure time, and
coaches have to try harder to get
and keep their attention virtually
Regrettably, coaches in all sports
have more "parental" influence to
worry about, given the sorry state
of many families everywhere.

even with the nine losses this year
was pretty good: 45-3S at BCHS
and 73-52 in 12.years.
Nothing to sneeze at.
He's told many of us his dream
is coaching at the college level,and
he could achieve that, though it
means he'd have to leave Baker

LETTER TO THE EDITORr
Suggests Youth League's
squads be based on size
I am concerned about safety in the Youth League football teams in
Baker County. .' ,
I've been to every game this season, and my main concern is the differ-
ence in the size of boys on each team. I've asked around and in other
counties, the division you are in is determined by your weight instead of
'Looking at the teams in Baker County, some kids are big for their age.:
Last week, a young boy was hit by two others much bigger than he, and he
was taken away by rescue.
Believe if the league teams were divided by weight class rather than
age, the boy's injuries would.not have been as severe.
If children get injured badly at this age, they may not get to play when
they are older and, who knows, may have been good enough to get to col-
lege on a football scholarship.
I also notice that if there is a neck or back injury, kids are being picked
up and carried off the field. The county should supply the league with a
backboard. You can do serious damage to someone if you move them
without stabilizing them first.
Our first priority should be safety.

In what was described as anoth-
er case of credit card fraud, a
Macclenny woman was bilked of
$251 from her bank account by
someone who used her identity at
an ATM in Pakistan.
Leah Larson told the sheriff's

She told Deputy Tony Norman
she knows no one in that country,

card to purchase on eBay.
In other thefts, someone took a
$300 cell phone from Amanda An-

A painting of The Miracle Quilt
of Democracy made .by, Kate

the old train depot at the park.
Mrs. McClenny raised her fami-
ly in Baker County in the late
1800s and is buried here. The
counts seat carries the family's
name (though spelled differently).
The quilt did a fair bit of travel-
ing in its day. It was hung at the
Florida Capitol in 1937 and dis-
played in Tallahassee as part of the
Florida Quilt Heritage Project.
Mrs. NMcClenn\;'s son, R.E.

1983 to.the Beach Area Historical
Society (BAHTS). \ here it remains
SAccording to Miller, the quilt
.was left in her care by her grand-
mother. thus giving no right to her
father to donate the quilt.
"I've been trying since 2001 to
get it." said Miller.
In a: letter from the BAHS, it
indicated that earlier this year, Mrs.
Miller called the board president
and requested the quilt be Ipaned to
The letter explains a policy of

"Mrs. Miller. and eventually
Mrs. Smrnall\ ood. were informed of
this requirement," wrote executive
director Holle\ Beasecly and collec-
tions manager Kathy Mays.
A letter was sent in July from
LaViece Small'oa od to the BAHS
requesting the quilt and was
denied. The denial letter explained
that a permanent display was being
built at the beach that would incor-
porate tlie quilt. Due to stipulations
put forth by the builders, the arti-
facts niust remain on site.
Thus the 6X7 fool painting of
the quilt by Fred Downs is all that
can be donated

deputy in city
Two white males in a 1998 Hon-
da successfully evaded a county de-
puty after he chased them through a
north Macclenny neighborhood
near midnight on October 27.
Deputy Brad Dougherty was
alerted to the Honda being driven
recklessly on US 90 west of the
city, and observed it after the vehi-
cle turned into a convenience store
The car sped off after the driver
spotted the deputy behind him,
turning north on 7th St. and onto
Shuey where the occupants fled
into nearby woods after skidding
into a driveway.
Several witnesses told police
they saw two persons matching the
description running elsewhere in
the neighborhood, and they got
into a blue vehicle and rode off.
The Honda belongs to Karen
Woolf of St. George, Ga., who was
not immediately available for
questioning. The report does not

This year, hunters using dogs to
pursue deer on private lands in
Florida must register for the 2005-
06 hunting season.
This new statewide, no-cost
registration program is mandatory
during any open deer-hunting sea-
son when taking deer with dogs is
permitted. The rule also applies
during the deer-dog training sea-
son, which has concluded in most
of the state.
The deer-dog hunting season
(general gun) on private lands
opens October 29 in the South
Hunting Zone and runs through
January 8. Farther up the state in
the Central Zone, the season runs
November 12 January 22. In the
Northwest Hunting Zone, it comes
in Thanksgiving Day and lasts
four days until November 27. Two
weeks later, the season reopens
December 10 and runs through
Hunting clubs, landowners or
anyone wanting to hunt deer with
dogs on a particular tract of land
can register by completing an
application available from all
regional FWC offices and at
MyFWC.com/hunting. The appli-
cant may be the landowner or a
person representing a group (hunt-
ing club) leasing the land for hunt-
Proof of landowner permission
or a copy of the written lease
agreement must accompany the
application along with a general
map of the property showing
boundary lines and legal descrip-
After processing the applica-
tion, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
will issue the applicant a unique
registration number, and that num-
ber must be affixed to the collars
of all dogs used to pursue deer on
that registered property. Where a
group or hunting club is hunting
the same tract of land, one regis-
tration number will be issued for
all dogs used on that property or
Any individual engaged in'
hunting or training deer dogs on
private lands must have a copy of
their registration while doing so
and must not allow their dogs off
the registered property, whether
intentionally or negligently.
This new rule does not apply
for hunting or training deer dogs

One of the greatest gifts God
gave to His human creation was
free will. It makes us unique. We
are not a bunch of puppets being
yanked about with strings, and the
decisions we make aren't con-
:trolled by the gods.
That being said, free will is also
one of the most difficult aspects of
We are probably accustomed to
thinking of free will as choices
available when confronted by neg-
ative temptations. Should I take
that drink or not? Should I flirt
with that married man or not?
Should I slip that candy bar in my
pocket instead of paying for it?
God doesn't keep us from answer-
ing "yes" to any of these.
We might also be accustomed
to thinking of it in the basic Christ-
ian sense: will I accept Jesus as
my Lord and Savior? This is often
the focus of sermons on free will.
We are given the choice and God
doesn't make it for us.
Beyond the fundamental choice
of becoming a Christian and the
choices concerning the occasional
negative temptations, free will is
involved in every moment of our
Christian lives, and plays its great-
est role in how close we come to
Christians are very busy people
and have many demands on their-
lives. As a result they often believe
there isn't time for anything else.
They say things like, "I can't be
there every time the church doors
are open!" "I know I should read
my Bible more, but I don't know
where I'd fit it in." "I'd like to
spend more time with the Lord,
but something al\% a s seems to get
in the \\3\."
\\c foretr it really\ is all about
free -will.and the choice's we-make.
Adjusting our schedules so there is
time for God in our lives and the
lies of our families is a choice.
God will not make it.happen.
Too many of us have bought in-
to the idea that our work is the.
most important aspect of our lives,
so it takes center stage. Without it
we won't have the money we need
to provide for our needs and the
:future of our children, so we struc-
ture the rest of our lives around it.
The.future of our children
comes next. We want to make sure
they have every opportunity to get
all the positive experience they
can. We enroll them in sports,
dance, drama, cheerleading. We

But all of it is a choice. What.
would happen if you chose to put
God and your relationship with
Him first before the job, the kids,
the chores? Do you think every-
thing else would suffer?
Not according to Jesus, "There-
fore do not be anxious, saying
'What shall we eat?' or 'What
shall we drink?' or 'What shall we
wear?' For the Gentiles seek all
these things; and your heavenly
Father knows that youth need them
all. But seek first his kingdom and
his righteousness, and all these
things shall be yours as well."

BISHOP TAKES NIGHT
Cats still winless
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Just when Baker County foot-
ball fans thought it couldn't get
any worse, it did.
Although the Wildcats hadn't
won a game all season, their loss
at Bishop Kenny Friday was as
gut-wrenching as it gets.
Bad enough apparently to con-
tribute to Coach Carl West's res-
ignation Monday. (See page one
for that story.)
The Cats are 0-9 heading into
their final game Friday against
Fernandina Beach, Baker High's
The Cats came out at Bishop
Kenny looking like a whole dif-
ferent team. They took it to the
Crusaders on offense, and shut
them down on defense as they ran
to an 18-3 lead at the half.
But Bishop Kenny dominated.

The Cats, however, absorbed,
the blows aid began to counter-"
punch. They scored twice in the
fourth quarter to go up 30-23 with
just 1:25 left in the game.
The Crusaders, led by quarter-
back Mike Stukel, drove for the
tying score with 22 seconds on
They then scored a touchdown
in the first overtime, but Baker re-
sponded in kind.
However, the Cats failed to
score on their possession in the
second overtime, setting up a 27-
yard, game-winning field goal by
Bishop Kenny kicker Matt Eller.
Ironically, the Wildcats lost in
double overtime at Bishop Kenny
two years ago, West said.
The coach blamed himself for
Friday's loss, saying a strategic
lapse on his part cost his team the
With 1:55 left, the Cats led 24-
23 when they stopped the Cru-
saders on fourth and four, and
took over on their own 34.
After a short gain on first
down, Lucious Lee broke a 55-
yard run to the.Bishop Kenny 11.
There was 1:37 left.
Two plays and 12 seconds lat-
er, Lee punched it in from the
The touchdown put the Cats up
30-23, but a bad snap led to a
missed extra point.
The Crusaders had 1:25 to dri-
ve for the tying score, which they

"'I kinda got wrapped up in the
game," he said. "In hindsight, we.
should have taken a knee.

The Cats took the field Friday
without five key players, includ-
ing starting wide receiver Gary
Dugger and Dante Johnson, an
impact player on both sides of the
overtime loss to Crusaders
West had suspended them for
violating team rules.
In their absence, Baker got big
contributions from Lee, quarter-
back Carlos Holton and Andrew
Bowman, an offensive/defensive
lineman who had an interception
and caught a touchdown pass. He
also pinned the Crusaders on their
one-yard linewith a 65-yard punt
that led to a safety.
Lee, in addition to his 55-yard
run that set up his touchdown near
the end of the game, rushed for

Bowman's interception at the

drive, but the Crusaders got the

The defense held, but Eller put
three on the board for Kenny.

kickoff down the field, highlight-

Holton then threw to Chris Crews
for the two-point conversion.
The score was 16-3 with about
three minutes left in the half.
A short kickoff gave the Cru-
saders possession at their 46, but
they turned the ball over on an in-
The Cats, however, were un-
able to move the ball, despite an
outstanding play by Holton, who
completed a third-down pass
while a defender was pulling him
to the ground.
On fourth and five from the 34,
Bowman's punt hit and rolled to
the Kenny one yard line.
On the Crusaders' first play the
Cats' defense recorded a safety
with about a minute to go in the
half, putting them up 18-3.
Bishop Kenny took the second
half kickoff down the field and
scored on a 12-yard pass just 2:47
into the third quarter. The drive
was highlighted by Stukel's 17-

total yards, ran for two touch-
downs and threw for three more.
With Craig Yarborough under
center, the Cats got a couple of
first downs on their next drive, but
had to give up the ball.
After one of his blockers
backed into his path, Bowman's
punt traveled just three yards to
the Crusaders' 45.

Gar Fraser was involved in an
altercation with a teammate after
the game, which led West to kick
him off the team.
Gary Dugger, who set a school
record for receiving last year and
is among the top pass catchers in
Northeast Florida this season, also
was dismissed after an incident
with an assistant coach on the
sidelines during the game.
Neither player was in uniform
due to disciplinary action.
"It became so important for
him to maintain his 'principles'
that he lost sight of the team's
goals," Ryan Fraser said.
For the Bishop Kenny game,
West suspended five players, in-,

who were either starters or got
significant playing time.

It's likely the next coach will

If you shop around for a home equity loan or line of credit, you'll find that a
lot of low advertised rates don't look as good when you read the fine print. At VyStar,
the more you read, the better it gets. That's because our rate is not a teaser rate just
to get you in the door and it doesn't go up based on your credit. There are no hidden
costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties that change the true cost of the loan to you.
In fact, we'll even pay your closing costs on lines of $10,000 to $125,000. We adjust our
best rate monthly to keep it a half a percent below the prime rate as reported by the Wall
Street Journal's Money Rate section and is current as of October 7, 2005. Of course, there
are always limitations and restrictions, such as basic credit approval, the appraised value of
your home and the amount of money you want to borrow. But in the end, you'll find that our
low rates just keep getting better, the more you know. For example, you can get our best rate
on up to 80% of the value of your home, less the first mortgage balance, if it's your primary
residence. Other loan to value rates are equally attractive and again, aren't encumbered by
hidden charges and early payoff fees. Visit a branch or call us for details and learn why we are
the leader in home equity loans and lines of credit.
