The Baker County School Board
approved a new program that en-
courages high school students'to
consider a career in education.
The county and the state of
Florida are facing a shortage of
qualified teachers, brought on in
part by a voter-mandated reduction
in class sizes, as well as attrition

started at the beginning of the cur-

Coincidentally, as the school
board considered the matter, Bob
Gerard, who is leading the pro-
gram, was meeting with potential

summer to learn about the program.

Once-skeptical Macclenny offi-
cials expressed support Tuesday
night for collecting an impact fee
on behalf of the' school district,
then chided the county for its role
in setting the amount of the fee.
The city commission took no of-
ficial action but indicated it would
likely enter an agreement with the
county to collect the fee with each
building permit it issues.
Neither the city nor the school
board can enact an educational im-
pact fee. And the school board can-
not collect it because it does not is-
sue building permits, so the county,
must pass the fee ordinance.
County commissioners have
scheduled a public hearing Novem-
ber 21 on a $1000 school impact
fee, which automatically doubles
after one year. Ms. Barton said
commissioners "encouraged" the
school board to structure it that

"I don't mean to thro\% rocks at
them, but they need to step up,"
echoed Commissioner Phil Rho-
den. "The need is now."
Ironically, just two weeks ago,
the commission directed its attor-
ney to determine whether the city
could legally refuse to become in-
volved with school impact fees.
"We have never been involved
in their funding process and I don't
want to be involved now unless it's
mandated," said Mayor Gary Dop-
Commissioner Bennett said at
the same meeting he would vote
against implementing a fee for the
school board "unless someone can
show me different."
He also railed against the district
for not sending someone to the city
On Tuesday night, however,
School Superintendent Paula Bar-
ton showed up, as did school board
member Dean Griffis, along with
the board's impact fee consultant
After Ms. Barton spoke to the
commission, consultant Ken Crev-
eling repeated the presentation he'd
given school officials earlier this
year about the district's financial
needs to meet projected growth.
He told the city commission that
the schools could justify an impact
fee of up to $5068.
Impact fees, levied on nev con-
struction, are intended to help pay
for the additional roads, schools,

fice %will likely have to wait a
month or more for conclusive au-
topsy findings after the coinciden-
tial deaths of r-'c. infants during [h:
early morning hours on successive
dates last weekend.
"It was very unusual. Nearly the

Chuck Brannan, chief sheriff's
investigator on call the mornings of
November 5-6 w hen frantic parents
"It was identical: parents feed

couch with the baby on their chest,
only to wake up several hours later
and find them dead."
Investigator Brannan and de-
puties who responded to the scenes
in Glen St. Mar) and Sanderson
found nothing that leads them to
suspect foul play. Cause of death
could range anywhere from SIDS
(Sudden Infant Death) Syndrome
to accidental rollover.
Autopsies should reveal evi-
dence of the latter via suffocation,
but SIDS often involves no dis-
cernable cause of death.
Christopher Petty. 29, awoke
shortly after 7:00 the morning of
November 5 to find his five-week-
old son Donovan lying unrespon-
sive between a couch and his torso.

the following morning just before
6:00 when Kaylyn Adams, 20,
awoke on a couch. She had fallen
asleep five hours earlier after feed-
ing her one-month-old son Jordan.
The child's father Daniel, 22,
administered CPR to the lifeless
babN as the couple awaited the
arrival of rescue at their residence
off CR 139B west of Glen.
The bodies of both babies were
taken to the medical examiner's
office in Gainesville for the autop-
sies, and Lt. Brannan said results
normally are known in 5-6 weeks.
The American SIDS Institute
says similar circumstances are cited
in the deaths of 2500 infants each
year, though the number is down
more than 50% since 1983.
Experts recommend babies sleep
on their backs, and parents keep
sleeping areas free of all objects

No Teaser rates.
No hidden fees.
Just really low rates.
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 fa:t, we'll even pay your closing costs on lines of 510.000 to 5125,000 We adjust our
best rate mornhll tc keep it a half a percent below the prime rate as reported by the Wall
Street Journal s Money Pate section and is current 3s of No.ember 1, 2005. Of course, there
are al:..aYs limitations and restrictions such as basic credit approval, the appraised value of
your home and the amount of money ,ou w'.ant to borrow But in the end, you'll find that our
low rates just keep gelling 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

November 15 is when seniors
can enroll in the new Medicare pre-
scription drug program. Seniors
and caregivers are advised to really
do their homework before choosing
a particular plan in the program.
The enrollment period will .be
open for several weeks, so recipi-
ents still have time to investigate
options before enrolling. The dif-
ferent projected "savings" and
costs in each tier of the program
have caused a lot of confusion.
Seniors and family members
with questions are'-urged to call
Medicare at 1-800-633-4227 or the
SHINE department at the Northeast
Florida Area Agency Elder Help
Line at 800-242-4464. Or call the
COA at 259-2223 for a case worker
to help find answers to those ques-
It should be noted that there will
be another enrollment opportunity
in the future, but the cost of partici-
pation will be higher for any eligi-
ble recipient who does not enroll.

When my daughter was a
sophomore in college, she had a
severely broken leg and was on

After-she tried (and failed) to

Occasionally there are times

allow their now adult children to
learn how to take care of them-
In fact, many colleges and uni-
versities are offering orientation
sessions for parents to learn where
to draw the line. of involvement.
Scott Chesney, director of residen-

Chesney admits that there are
certainly times when parents need
to get involved; for example, when
students.are genuinely confused or
cannot handle normal communica-
tion. But, he says, when a parent
gets involved because a student
misbehaves, when there is a dis-
agreement with a roommate, or
when the student has a problem
with a erade in class, that is often
over the line.
There are things you can do to
help your student be prepared for
making big decisions after'leaving
Make sure they know what
resources are available if they need
help. More than a third of students
in the high school class of 2005
who took the ACT said that they
expect to need help with study
skills. Ensure your student knows
where to go for help if they're
struggling in a class. Nearly 10%
of the students said they would
need help with personal concerns.
Make sure your teen knows where
the campus counseling center is if
they need it.
Guiding students in the right
direction is very different than
swooping in and sol\ ing the prob-
lem for them. After all, in a few
years, when they're working for a

The boys and girls Baker County Middle School basketball teams are
ready to tip off a new season.
Coach Anne Cassidy held tryouts last week that were attended by 25
girls. She chose ten for her team, including five players from last year's
team, four of whom were starters.
"We have only two eighth graders... we're a young team," Cassidy
The ten girls are Meagan Osteen, Destiny Delapena, Amber Antoine,
Kiana Parker, Kierra Lee, Chelsey Ruise, Auston King, Leslie Trawick,
Caitlyn Smith and Jordyn Yarborough.
"We're going to try and build for the future and go out there and-do
the best we can," the coach said.
As for the boys team, headed by coach Anthony Mahon, last week's
tryouts saw 53 boys competing for 12 spots.
"We'll be a good, hard-nosed, disciplined group," he said.
The roster for the Bobcats this year are Brandon Robertson, Chris Mc-
Cray, Thomas Sirk, Deontay Farmer, Cason Lowery, Nathan Harrell,
Ruben Jackson, Daniel O'Brien, Blane Finley, Will Miller, Blake Hart

I can imagine if you are one of
the folks that left the Jaguars or

crowds that you are feeling a little
The cardiac Jags and the under-
achieving Gators both played
down to their opponents' level this
weekend and kept us on the edge
of our seats, while the Seminoles
were just in the cellar versus North
I just shake my head every
week I watch the Jaguars.. How
can a team that plays so splendidly
against top teams like Indy, Pitts-
burgh and Cincinnati turn around
and give a lackluster performance
against arguably the worst team in
the NFL? It baffles me.
The Jaguars had to dig deep,
and Byron Leftwich had to pull. a
switcheroo and run the ball for the
big Cats to defeat the Texans 21-
14 in the last minutes.
The Texans have the. worst of-
fense in football, but it didn't look
that way versus a defense that is
supposedly one of the best-in the

brilliance and the defense had a
tough time stopping the run. Of-

Leftwich is SLOW and the
bootleg caught the Texans on the
back foot and he ran in virtually
untouched, but the Texans tied the
score on their ensuing possession.
Greg Jones then scored the win-
ning touchdown with under three
minutes to go.
It was an ugly win, but a win
But the performance still begs
the question of why this team can't
play consistently every week and
use its obvious talent to.blow out
lesser teams? Is it a question of
character? Of leadership on the
field and the sideline?
As for the Gators, they just
couldn't put a stubborn Vnderbilt
away, and but for an overzealous
official making a very question-
able call on a celebration penalty
in the end zone, the Commodores
could have very well won this

scores with minutes to go, it
looked like they had the game in
hand. But Vandy drove.down the
field, scored, kicked an onside
kick, scored and could have won
the game with a two point conver-
sion in regulation.
However, the official in the end
zone threw a flag when the receiv-
er who scored moved his arms in a
little dance, forcing the Com-
modores too far back to go for
two. Instead they kicked a 35-yard
extra point to tie the gjme.
It's a shame that a call by an of-
ficial influences the end of the
game like that, especiallI when the
celebration was pretty negligible
compared to some I've seen.
In the end, the Gators defense
pulled them out of the fire with an
interception in double overtime.
As for the Seminoles, they have
always had trouble with NC State

They looked terrible in that game.,
