early taste (literally) of what
Thanksgiving Day will be like during
the annual Pilgrim Dinner staged for
students at Westside Nursery and Pre-
School in Glen St. Mary last week.
Baker County schools kicked off the
2005 holiday season early this week on
Tuesday, and those brave enough to
bear the crowds will join thousands of
others in the Jacksonville area on
Friday and Saturday, hitting the box
stores and malls for the traditionally
busiest shopping days of the year.
Temperatures over northeast Florida
are expected to cooperate that is if
you like brisk holiday weather.

$24 million plant coming


Deal so quiet, even

neighbor in the dark ...: .
:1....:*",'' .. .3 .- ': ,... -. .. .-" :


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
The courtship ritual between county business.leaders and
Hanson Roof Tile was just the way they like it -'smooth, quick
and secret with one exception.
As the deal neared completion, Sanderson Pipe somehow
found out it was getting a new neighbor, although officials
didn't know details, which raised concerns.
"We didn't know that it wasn't another pipe mill moving
next to us," said Tom Hiday, Sanderson Pipe's comptroller.
"We didn't know if it was a company that planned to use the
railroad spur... which is vital to us... we use it all day, every
day."
He said he contacted Ginger Barber, executive director of
,the Baker County Chamber of Commerce.
"I expressed our concern to her. We never tried to stop it,"
Mr. Hiday said Tuesday morning.
He didn't say how the company found out, but denied it
came from the workers surveying Hanson's tract, which ad-
joins Sanderson Pipe to the south.
County Commission Chairwoman Julie Combs said she'd
Heard that the surveyors leaked Hanson's name to someone
from the pipe company during a conversation at the site.
"When it was almost a done deal... Sanderson Pipe called
the Development Commission and said, 'What's going on?"'
The plant is being built in Ms. Combs' district, plus she
was the commission's liaison with the Development Commis-
sion.
As it turned out, Hanson has no plans to use the railroad.
However, although Hanson is not a competitor to Sander-
son Pipe in terms of product, they may compete over work-


ers.
Mr. Hiday said the company is al-
ways advertising for quality people,
and Hanson's presence may make
it even more difficult.
The employment market is al-
ready stretched by Wiremil, another
manufacturing neighbor, and the
Wal-Mart Distribution Center.
In addition to common jobs, such
as forklift operators, companies can
easily train a typical factory worker
to handle diverse products, he said,
Meanwhile, Mr. Hiday said it's
likely that Sanderson Pipe employ-
ees will have to deal with the has-
sles of construction traffic and po-
tential power outages that could ad-
versely affect his company's opera-
tions.
"We hope it will cause as little
trouble as possible," he said. "It's
good for the county and we wel-
come them as a neighbor."

A London-based company is build-
ing a $24 million roof tile production
facility near Sanderson that is expect-
ed to provide 81 jobs and inject mil-
lions of dollars into Baker County's
economy.
In exchange, the company will get
free land and property tax rebates.
Officials from Hanson Roof Tile
told the Baker County Commission
on Monday that the plant, which is,
expected to be completed by Septem-
ber 2006, will pay workers an average
salary of $29,000 and add $14.2 mil-
lion to the local economy over its first
five years. That amount represents a 1
percent increase in the county's econ-
omNy.
Hanson Roof Tile is part of Hanson
PLC. a building materials conglomer-
ate with $6 billion in annual sales. It
employs 27,400 people in 14 couin-
tries.

er County Development Commissiofi
agreed to turn over 15.4 acres in ow ns
in Enterprise West. located south of
US 90, near just east of Sanderson
(see map). The industrial park is al-
ready home to Insteel (formerly Wire-
mil) and Sanderson Pipe.
The land is valued at $5100 per
acre, according to the property ap-
praiser's office.
In addition, the county approved
property tax rebates for Hanson 75
percent for the first five years, then 50
percent for the next five.
The state will also kick in an incen-,
tive through its Rural Economic De-
velopment Initiative.
"The incentives were a very, very
big factor," said John Quigley, group
technical services manager, who will
be overseeing construction of the.
120,000 square foot plant.
"Geographically, it's a good loca-
tion to reach our target market, which
is to supply South Florida, then ex-
pand into Georgia and the Carolinas."


The demand in South Florida is
particularly high due to hurricane
damage over the past couple of years,
said Ginger Barber, executive director
of the Baker County Chamber of
Commerce.
She said the Development Com-
mission \ ill turn over the property in
about three weeks.
Mr. Quigley indicated initial grad-
ing w ork at the site could begin,at that
time, with construction beginning af-
ter the first of the year. Hanson is
awaiting permits from the state and
the St. Johns River Water .Mariage-
ment District.
He said the plant should be up and
running sometime around September
2006.

Greystone

PUD hits

snag over

safety of

chilen
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
Baker County's first "planned
unit development" has run afoul of
another local agency, as the school
superintendent questioned whether
it has adequately planned for chil-
dren's safety.
Paula Barton raised the school
district's concerns t the Baker
County Commission meeting Mon-i
day during the first reading of a re-
zoning for the development.
Called Gre stone, it will be lo-
cated on 123 acres between the
high school and Little St. Marn's
River.
It will contain a maximum of
240 housing units, which will be
clustered toward Madison Street.
The clustering is the key ele-
ment of a planned unit develop-
ment, often called a PUD.
Rezoning to a PUD offers more
flexible and potentially creative de-
velopment, allowing a developer to
meet density and land use rules
without rigid requirements such as
minimum lot standards and use cat-
egories.
For Greystone, clustering near
Madison allows a relatively wide
natural buffer between the housing
and the river.
Ms. Barton's concern is the safe-
ty of children living in Greystone
and walking across Madison -
where drivers often exceed the
speed limit and which includes a
dangerous curve to the high
school, or to Westside Elementary.
She said the district and sheriff's
office will need to put a crossing
guard at each exit.
.When commission chairwoman
Julie Combs asked if the developer,

Most of those fans won't realize that competition between the two
schools extends off the field onto the sideline as well, where two former
BCHS cheerleaders will be helping keep fan enthusiasm at a fever pitch.
Erica Raulerson (left in photo) cheers for the University of Florida,
while on the other sideline, Taylor Nix (right) will be yelling for the
Seminoles. The girls grew up in the same Glen St.. Mary neighbor-
hood, and are lifelong friends who have taken their sport to another
level, cheering for top Division 1 universities.
SDespite being in opposing camps, their friendship hasn't less-
ened. They keep into touch every few days.
"She's still my best friend," said Erica Raulerson. "I just
love her."
The pair has been giving each other a
little stick this week as they get ready for
the big game. Taylor Nix laughed it off.
'"She's been getting on me a little this
week and I've been giving it right back."
The pair plans to meet at halftime or
before the 3:30 pm game this Saturday in
Gainesville. The Gator cheerleaders pro-
vide halftime snacks for the opposing
cheerleaders and Erica is anxious to see
her old friend.
Both girls have been cheering for a
good portion of their lives. "I suppose she

I'm a pretty good cook, but not
when it comes to dressing. That
was the domain of my late mom
Barbara. She was an expert. The
only thing I can tell you with cer-
tainty about her recipe is that she
used Ballard Corn Bread Mix. Be-
yond that, I am lost.
The secret went with her to a
better place. My sister Tracy does
quite well with dressing and she is
the one who makes it for. the
Thanksgiving meal.
My one attempt at this southern
delicacy resulted in a concoction

Even the birds weren't interested.
The abandoned sections of rubber-
ized corn, bread subsequently mol-
dered and eventually went back
from whence they originally came -
the dirt which was a fitting end,
seeing as to how they didn't taste
much better than that.
Since then I've stuck to making
biscuits.
But what's a traditional Thanks-
giving meal without the dressing?
Just that a meal without the dress-
ing. And it's woefully noticeable. It
just isn't Thanksgiving without it.
There is a big hole on the table that
no proliferation of additional side
dishes can fill.
O,h, I love the sweet potato
casserole with the little marshmal-
lows on the top and I could eat an,
entire can :of cranberry sauce by
myself. Rice is nice with the giblet'
gray, but it's not the same as a
large helping of golden dressing,
fragrant %% ith sage, steaming on the
plate beside the:turkey and the
string beans. Oh, no. not by a long
Sshot..
, ..And who was the nut that first
prepared dressing \with OYSTERS
in it? Why would someone do that
to a pan of perfect dressing, the


IN-. UM


holy of Thanksgiving holies?
I remember (how could one for-
get such an experience) the first
time I was served this horror. I
nearly jumped up and ran from the
room. Picking the offending objects
out and discretely feeding them to
the poodle that was begging under
the table. Oysters smell like marsh
mud and to me don't taste much
better. I concluded that the hostess
must have had a bout of temporary'
insanity..
The most wonderful thing in the
world is to get dressing right from
the bird, Most folks don't prepare it
this way anymore, baking it inside
the cavity of the turkey. The rea-
son, I've heard from cooks, is that
it takes too long and in this busy,
working-mom society, any shortcut
is a blessing.
I've bought dressing from res-
taurants and it's pretty good. You
can get an entire holiday meal al-
ready prepared from many of the
larger supermarkets. My friend
Margaret decided to do this one
year and save herself some time
and hassle.
That turned out to be a huge
mistake.
She thought her. children were
going to throw her into the river.
There was weeping and wailing
and gnashing of teeth. "Boy," she
told me, "that went over like a lead
balloon. And they ne\ er let me for-
get it."
Maybe I'm sentimental to a
fault, but I want the real thing.
There is nothing quite like walking
into a kitchen where the Thanks-
giving meal is cooking and having
the aromas envelope you like a
Aarm blanket. You can hardly wait
to sit at the table with friends and
family, say grace and dig in.
Maybe someday I'll learn to
make that dressing. Or if I'm lucky,
marry a man who cooks.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Esc impact fees are set


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
The,simple idea behind impact
fees making growth pay for itself
has become a somewhat tortured
process among Baker County's
governing bodies.
In the latest twist, the Board of
County Commissioners decided to
rewrite the ordinance establishing
an impact fee for education.
Until Monday, the fee was set at
$1000 for each new residential-
unit. After one \cari it would auto-
matically increase to $2000.
Now, it will be $1500 the first
year and $1500 the second. Each
'year after that, it will increase 20
percent.
Macclenny city officials had
criticized their county counterparts
over their handling of the educa-.
tion'impact fee.
In fact, Ma.for Gary Dopson
read an apology. at the county
board meeting Nlonday evening.
He said the "harm and unfair-
ness'" of the remarks was "not in-
tentional."
In one instance. C'it Comnmis-
sioner Vernon Bennet, .referring to
the graduated impact fee, said: "If
it's going to be $2000. wh\ not do
it now? The need to stand up and
be men."
As to the education impact fee,
commissioners Mark Hartley, Gor-


don Crews and Fred Raulerson
asked that the ordinance be rewrit-
ten to exempt church parsonages
from the fee.
The county will charge a 2 per-
cent administrative fee. for collect-
in' the tax on behalf of the school
district.
In other impact fcV Aciion, com-,
missioners approved an interlocal
agreement to collect Glen St.
Mary's fee, which the county set at
$1500 in its ordinance
However, at last week's Glen
Town Council mecline. council-
men asked Mayor Juanice Padgett
to seek a consultant to adise the
town on implementing its fee.
Councilman Larry Payne said
he had doubts about approving the
fees as part of the county ordi-
nance.
The county ordinance, however,
is already law.
Impact fees, levied on new coin-
struction, are intended Io help pay
for the additional roads, schools, .
police and fire services needed to
accommodate growth. ,
There are rules go erning
ihen. ,\here and ho%\ much can
be spent, and the fees must be jus-
tifiable.
Malicclenn\ his set its fee at'
$3000, although the ordinance is
a a\iting a second reading before
it is enacted.


While the city's impact fee will
be apportioned among transporta-
tion, law enforcement, emergency
services, fire services and recre-
ation, the county's $1500 is exclu-
sively for transportation.
A consultant hired by the
school board said earlier this year
the district could levy a fee of up
to: $5068.
That's why the school board's
fee can automatically increase,
ihrhile the county's can't, although
the county can assess fees for oth-
er services, such as law enforce-
ment and recreation.,
The county must enact the ordi-
nance for the schools because the
school board cannot make its own
laws.
The county also must collect
the fee on behalf of the schools
and Glen St. Mary because neither'
issues building permits. The fee is
collected when a permit is pulled.

said that after a real estate agent

mentioned Baker County as an op-
tion, company officials checked
the Internet.
Ms. Barber credit her group's
Web site: (bakerchambeifl.com)
with making a good first impres-
sion.
"It's the first time we got some-
body through the site,'"she said.
The two sides worked three
months on the agreement.
County commissioners approved
the deal at their regular meeting
Monday night. Within minutes, the
Development Commission met at
the Commerce Center to approve
the agreement.
Commission Chairwoman Julie
Combs said the incentives package
is a small price to pay to bring
Hanson here.
"Even with the ad 'valorem re-.
bate, we'll still be getting other
benefits... personal property tax on
equipment and the franchise fee."
The plant will be located in Ms.
Combs' district. .
,She took time to salute the ef-
fort of Darryl Register, chairman
of the Development Commission.'
"'Other than the economic im-
pact, that was the biggest deal to.
me," she said. "Being a volunteer,
he stepped'up to the plate and
pulled this thing off.
"He spent a lot of time on this.
He even flew to California and'
toured a plant to make sure it
wouldn't be a blight on the county."

Although for tax purposes, the
'--land is currently valued at $5100
per acre, it will increase drastically
once the facility is built, which
will boost the county's total as-
sessed value.
As a result, each mill of tax will
generate more revenue for local
governments.
The Northeast Florida Regional


Planning Council calculated the
economic impact of the plant, and
presented-its finding to the com-

years of operation, the plan gener-
ate $5.8 million in personal in-
come.

Woman held in Michigan will

likely be charged with car theft


A chance match-up of birth-
dates coupled with a past arrest in
Baker County furnished key leads
in connecting an Orlando woman
to the theft a Honda SUV belong-
ing to a Keller Intermediate teach-
er on November 1.
The woman also took purses,
credit cards and identification be-
longing to the teacher and a co-
league.
Jennifer Jean Vuich, 24,. also
known as Jennifer Perez, is being
held by authorities in Oakland
County, Michigan near Detriot on
an unrelated charge of credit card
fraud.
Baker County authorities were
tipped off by relatives of the wo-
man living in Michigan that she
was in jail, and an inquiry last


week led to the information that
she indeed was, and may have
lined up the Honda for dismantling
at a Detroit "chop shop."
The 2005 Honda Pilot in her
possession matched the vehicle ID
number of the one stolen that
morning from McKenzie Harrison
of Macclenny.
Michigan authorities initially
said they had a lead on the vehi-
cle's whereabouts, but this week
that was in some doubt.
Ms. Vuich, who has relatives in
Baler County and a history of
stealing vehicles after taking purs-
es with remote entry keys inside,
was in the area that day at the near-
by Family Service Center.
Ms. Harrison and fellow
teacher Kim Taylor of Glen St.
Mary also identified the suspect as


the person they saw on the
Intermediate School grounds just
prior to the thefts.
She is also known at the Family
Service Center from past. visits
there applying for assistance. Last
year she had sought relief as a hur-
ricane victim.
Her sister also told officers re-
cently Ms. Vuich has a drug prob-
lem and visits Baker County from
time to time to see her, parents.
They had suspected she headed for
Michigan early this month because
other family and a boyfriend live
there.
Within hours of the November
1 thefts, authorities learned the
stolen credit cards were used at a
Lake City Wal-Mart, a Gate Food
Store in White Springs, Fla. and
Flash Foods in Lake Park, Ga.
near Valdosta.
Clerk Jennifer Phipps. at the
Gate store recalled Ms. Vuich and
remembered she purchased ciga-
rettes and several other items.
The store routinely keys in a
purchaser's birthdate when they
buy cigarettes, and that proved to
be a major lead for local investiga-
tors trying to trace the suspect's
route after leaving here..
Investigator Gerald Rhoden
said the birthdate on the register
receipt matched the one recorded
when Ms. Vuich was arrested here
in 2004 for driving on a suspended
license.
Her mug shot was shown to the
victims and they identified her as
the female, seen on the Keller cam-
pus, and the photo matched sur-
veillance pictures from the con-
venience stores.
The day after the thefts, Ms.
Harrison's wallet and several per-
sonal items were recovered near a
grocery store in Macon, Ga.
Police theorize Ms. 'uich made
her way north on 1-75 to the De-
troit area, and purchased gasoline
along the way attempting to stay
ahead of credit card cancellations.
To do that, she bought several'
plastic gas containers at stores
after leaving here, and kept them
inside the Honda.

Attempts to

steal nearly

$20K in body

shop property
An ex-employee faces multiple
felony counts after he was caught
by police in the process of carting
off nearly $20,000 in equipment
and supplies from Butch's Paint
and Body Shop north of Macclen-
ny in the late evening of Novem-
ber 18.
Police were called to the scene
off Harley Thrift Road just after
11:00 pm after a relative of shop
owner Butch Gifford was alerted
to a 1976 Chevrolet truck parked
in front of the shop.
Deputies Adam Faircloth and
James Parham, III were about to
enter the body shop to search it
when they spotted Shawn P. Nich-
olson, 33, of Jacksonville emerge
from a frofit office door.
The suspect complied with
police orders to place his hands
above his head, and initially said,
"It's alright, I know Butch. I used
to work for him."
He had several items from in-
side the shop, and told the officers
he was borrowing them and in-
tended to return them the next day.
By that time the shop owner,
who lives next door, was at the
scene and confirmed Mr. Nich-
olson once worked for him "five
or six years ago."
Mr. Gifford also identified sev-
eral boxes of equipment in the bed
and cab of the Chevrolet, and later
estimated by a quick-count the
inventory and equipment taken out
of the shop before police arrived
was worth $9570.
Early this week,, he estimated
other items that had been. stashed
in'a trash bin awaiting removal to
the truck were valued at another
$9855.
Mr. Nicholsbn was booked on
four counts of felony grand theft,
armed burglary because he had a
knife in his pants pocket, along
with several lesser misdemeanors
including armed trespass, improp-
er parking, improper license tag
and revocation of a driver's license
for using a vehicle to commit a
felony.- .: -. "

PENSEE
CHERYL PINGEL

Thanksgiving is once again
upon us. This year it comes in the
midst of much natural disaster and
world-wide tragedy.
Earthquakes, mudslides, hurri-
canes, tornados, floods and fires
have taken their toll in 2005, but:
the victims of these massive waves
of destruction are not the ones who
will fail to give thanks as one
might expect.
We have all watched as people
return to a pile of rubble where
once their house stood, grieving
over the loss of prized possessions
and walking through neighbor-
hoods where nothing remains. Yet
somewhere in the conversation we
also heard them express thanksgiv-
ing.
They were thankful they still
had each other, or thankful they
were able to find some of their
family photos, or for the aid they
were receiving from complete
strangers.
You'd think it would be the
ones wh6 have everything who
feel heartfelt thanksgiving and
offer meaningful expressions of
gratitude this holiday, but it won't
be. Those of us who haven't been
recently touched by tragedy settle
into a type of complacency.
We take our blessings for grant-
ed, and what is even worse, we
seem to develop an attitude of re-
sentment because we don't have


more. We will be the ones grumb-
ling we can't see the game we
wanted to watch because we have
to go to so and so's again for din-
ner.
We will be the ones complain-
ing because the turkey is too dry
or the pie too brown. Those with
every reason to be thankful will
celebrate the season with the least
genuine expressions of thanksgiv-
ing. I ; ,
And it will be the ones who
have had their lives shattered, their
possessions demolished and their
worlds turned upside down who
.will be offering sincerely felt
words of thanks and praise.
They have learned the value of

Still friends despite football rivalry


Sarah Tranick battle wo ri igers fi,r a loose ball in Ith : C.i.s Li'n:., C ,n,


Lady Cats defeat Broncos;


savor long-sought victory


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Sports Editor
The Baker County girls basket-
ball team did something Tuesday
it hadn't done in nearly two years.
It won.
The Wildcats traveled to Mid-
dleburg and beat the Broncos 34-
23. Their record nowstands at 1-2
"It was a total team effort,"
said coach Franklin Griffis. "We
got good defense and make key
baskets when we needed to."
"It's an ugly win, but after not
winning in 20-some games, we'll
take it."
Last year the Cats went winless
on the season, but two weeks ago,
they picked up a preseason tour-
nament win in Lake Butler.


On offense, Baker was led by
Brittany Hinson, Kara Dupree and
Brittany Ruise.
Unlike the preseason and first
couple of games of the regular
season, the Cats played tough de-
fense without committing a lot of
fouls.
Griffis said the bench played
well, so well in fact that he alter-
nated the starters and backups in
each quarter.
"We got into a good flow," he
said.
The victory, especially against
a district foe, helped wipe out a
tough home loss the day before.
Union County rode a dominat-
ing third quarter to a 60-45 win.
The two teams traded the lead
throughout the first half, with the


Tigers taking a 29-25 advantage'
into the locker room.
The visitors came out with a
10-0 run before Hinson hit. a pair
of free throws after the Tigers
picked up a technical for an ille-
gal substitution with 3:46 left in
the third quarter.
Two minutes later, Ruise hit a
difficult shot from the lane, but
that was the extent of the Cats
scoring in the quarter, which end-
ed with Union County up 47-29.
Led by Hinson, the Cats
outscored the Tigers 16-13 in the
fourth quarter, but it was too little
too late.
Their next game is November
29 at home against Bradford
County.


(From page one)
started cheering in Little League
when she was about three," said
Becky Nix, Taylor's mother.
"We've always been Seminolk fans
and have had season tickets since
she was a little girl. So it was al-
ways a dream of Taylor's to cheer
for the Seminoles.
As a freshman, Taylor Nix isn't
able to travel to a lot of away
games. "There's seniority and
freshmen have to waitAheir turn,"
she explains.
Erica Raulerson took a slightly
different path to the sidelines. She
didn't cheer until middle school.
Growing up, she was a gymnast
and spent most of her time tum-
bling and flipping. They were skills
that came in handy later.
"It sort of gave me an edge.
when I started cheering and even
here at Florida I came in a little bit
ahead. I already knew the tech-
niques."
Her ability to tumble served her
well as a BCHS cheerleader. She
would often flip from one side of
the gym floor to the other during
basketball games and the skill real-
ly worked up the fans.
Taylor and Erica went from all-
girl squads in high school to coed
squads and that has been a big ad-
justment. Both girls are lucky to be
paired with big, strong guys who
can lift them over their heads as if
they were light as a feather.
Taylor really likes the change.
"The guys really look after us.
We're like a big family and they're
like our brothers."
Erica agrees and has a lot of
confidence in her partner. There is-
n't ever a question of whether he's
going to drop, her. It just isn't going
to happen.
Neither girl was prepared for the


amount of time that goes into big-
time college cheerleading.
"I have to be at conditioning at
5:30 am in the south end zone to
work with the conditioning coach-
es. We're out there with the athletes
getting into shape."
When interviewed at 11 pm on
Monday night, Taylor had just got,
ten back from three hours of prac-
tice. Both girls practice day and
night and it takes up a lot of their
time, but both agree that it's worth
it on Saturday afternoon when they
run out onto the field.
"You can't imagine the noise,"
says Erica. "You just can't imagine
the noise in The Swamp before a
game. Right before the game when
the PA announcer says, 'Welcome
to the Swamp, where only Gators
get out alive,' it is so loud that it
physically hurts. I don't think Tay-
lor is prepared for that. I've
cheered at Doak, but it's an open
stadium. The Swamp is more clos-
ed in and the noise is incredible."
Taylor Nix remembers the first
time she cheered at a Seminole
game in Doak Campbell stadium as
being terrifyingly exciting.
"When I stepped out there, I did-
n't know whether to run away
screaming or to scream with excite-
ment. It's been like that ever
since."
Her mother felt the same way.
"I've been to games ever since I
was little and I always loved the
band and I would always watch the
horse (Renegade, the Seminole
mascot)," says Becky Nix.
"But the first time she cheered I
didn't even know there was a horse
but there. It was so emotional for
me because she had reached her
dream. She wasn't always the best
tumbler or flier, but here she was


out there on the field."
Sherrie Raulerson, Erica's mom,
agrees.
"Seeing Erica on the field the
first time had the most emotional
impact. It was special because it
was a goal she had set a long time
ago. Watching Erica tumble across
the field that first time was very ex-
citing for me."
Both girls feel that they have a
responsibility as cheerleaders to
represent the school and the squad
in a positive way.
"We spend a lot of time in public
appearances," says Erica. "And we
love it. We appear at Gator Clubs
and at elementary schools. Those
kids really look up to us."
Taylor Nix agrees. "We are role
models to a bigger community than
in high school. It's like we're held
to a higher standard. We represent a
bigger school."
Both girls will be bringing that
notoriety to national television
when the teams face off on Satur-
day. For the cheerleaders it will cap
a week of Florida/Florida State
competition as the teams compete
in basketball and other sports lead-
ing up to the clash at the Swamp.
With neither team in the hunt for
a national title this year and coming
off open weeks, the game is even
more intense.
Intense ri' airy or not, two for-
mer BCHS cheerleaders will have
one eye on their fans and one
peeled across at their friend in or-
ange and blue or garnet and gold
on the opposing sideline.
'For a couple of committed
cheerleaders who have been friends
since grade school, it doesn't get
much better than that.


Ruise wants to leave past behind


BY MICHAEL. DRINKER
Sports Editor,
Wildcats boys b:asketlball coach 'lC:lce Ruise is
looking for a rebound,
Specifik.lM, Ihe' looking to bounce back from a
d;iappointing, sea'-on last year, one in which his team
went 7NiS, iinludinig being \swcpt oat heir own Christ-
mas tournament.
"Last. cr wa~ -- ---

Exactly how he's
going to do that i I
Ialrin a mystery, at i
least until November
29 when the Cuas
travel to Hilliard to
open the !~eau::'n,
At practice oil
Monday and at
school Tuesnda
morning, Ruise a: t,
reluctant to talk
specifics about the
team. He said le
doesn't want hla
players to see their
names in the paper Coach hates r admaputs t ear

"they're the man."
But that's one due to how he'll approach this sea-
son = it's all about team,
"e're not goinr, to be looking for is: one guy ." he
said, "In the past, we've had an athlete who we went to
in the offense, That just made it easy for teams to pre-
pare (11. uQ',

As for this year,, he ,:i\ -.,. "you can I,-'l' il : our style
of play as 'the best man open.' ,
Eight players are returning, including Carlos

Parmer is part of a nationally ranked

cheerleading squad at Central Florida


BY BOB GERARD
Press Features,
While Erika and Taylor get
ready for the big game in The
Swamp, BCHS's third big-time
college cheerleader, Katie Parmer,
will be getting ready for the Nation-
al College Cheerleading Cham-
pionships.
Katie cheers at 0CF, the only
college in the state to take part in
competitive cheerleading.
UCF is a former national cham-
pion, a notoriety that caught Katie
Parmer by surprise,
"They introduce us by name be-
fore the games and it's weird, we're
kind of treated like celebrities be-
.cause we're the only sport that has
won a national championship at
UCF," said Parnmer.
Like RanlJison and Nix, Pranner
spends a lot of time in practice.
"We practice 26 hours a week and
have two-a-days on Thursdays. You
can't imagine how hard some of
these practices are."
Parmer wasn't prepared for how
physical cheering was at UCF.
When she hit the weight room dur-
ing the first week of training it
made her physically ill.
"I threw up after my first train-
ing session. I had never done any-
thing like that and my body just
wasn't ready for it."


After a season of cheering, how-
'ever, she is in the best shape of her
life. "I have arms like a man," she
laughs. "I come home and people
laugh at my man arms."
Like it is for Erika and Taylor,
stepping out onto a football field is
exciting, but for her it is different,
Rather than being the culmination
of a week
of hard
work, at
times it .
feels like .
another "
practice
for the
competi- "
tion
show.
"This ere :. o
seems -
strange to
say, but
what we
do in
practice
is a lot
harder Katie Parmer
than what
we do on the sidelines. We use the
games to try out some of the stuff
we're working on in competition."
The practices are watched over
by the cheerleading coach, who has
been at UCF for 24 years and by a
trio of trainers who work out the


bumps and bruises to keep the
squad healthy.
SParmer has been surprised by
how well UCF is doing in football
this season. The Knights are 8-3
and challenging for the Conference
USA title and a bowl game. The
cheerleading squad is doing even
better. It is ranked number 4 in the
country and are seeding into the fi-
nals of the competition on January
15 at Walt Disney's Wide World of
Sports resort.
"The seeding is nice because it
means we can skip the preliminar-
ies and go straight to the final
rounds."
UCF joins two-timenational
champs Kentucky, Alabama, Ten-
nessee and Memphis in the finals.
The competition will be televised
on ESPN.
Parmer has been cheering for
eight years, but nothing prepared
her for college cheering.
"It's much more dangerous,
though I've never had more than a
sprained ankle. One of our routines
is a pyramid where I'm up three
high sideways and go head first in-
to a catch."
You'll get a chance to see Katie
Parmer's hard work pay off in the
National College Cheerleading
Championships in January on ES-
PN.

Kristen Wilkinson.


Ruise wants
to leave past..
(From page ten)
As for defense, Ruise was a little
more forthcoming.
"We'll run variations off a 2-3
zone. Sometimes we might stack
the two guys at the top, then split
them 'out according to the ball
movement... sometimes we may
have them trap the ball handler."
He'll also continue to use a full-
court press. "That's m'y middle
name, but we'll do it situationally,
when there's a need."
He said the team's strength is its
pre-season conditioning.
"We'll force an uptempo game,
wear down the other team, then
hopefully put it away later in the
game."
Trying to avoid any "hype," he
summed it up by saying, "We're
going to be competitive."
'+trF t-lliem- we're going to, be,
whatever kind of team they. want to
be." '"
After opening in Hilliard Tues-
day, the Cats play four more road
games before returning for their
home opener December 13 against
Ridge\ ie\\.
