Griffis' fate to be decided Thursday?

Board chairman

'sick of' situation;

calls meeting on

county manager
Press Staff
Reported) facing pressure from con-
stituents, Baker County commissioners
will meet Thursday to decide the future of
embattled County Manager Jason Griffis.
Chairman Alex Robinson, saying he is
"sick of" the controversy, announced
Tuesday that he was calling an emergency
meeting "to discuss the future of the
county manager."
"I made -up my mind it was time to do
something," he said. "We have a lot of
important things on the drawing board.

The tempest was triggered a few weeks
ago when Commissioner Robinson com-

Two checks written November 1 one for
$418.31, the other for $276.51 were
paid to Nextel Communications.

Records show Dopson's phone operating

Press Staff
Phone records for Macclenny
City Manager Gerald Dopson
cast doubt on his claim that he
was using his secretary's phone
when she received several hun-
dred calls from County Manager
Jason Griffis on his county-is-
sued cell phone.
Mr. Dopson told The Press
last week that he borrowed sec-
retary Christy Linster's phone
because his was out of service.

It appears, however, that his
cell phone was working
throughout the 60-day period
between September 12 and No-
vember 11.
In fact. Mr. Dopson received
calls on his phone every day but
three, according to city records.
Each of those days was a Sun-

calls to or from Mr. Griffis dur-
ing that period. Mr. Dopson is
Mr. Griffis' father-in-law.

November county bills ob-
tained this week show that Mr.
Griffis made 222 calls to Ms.
Linster's phone number.
Over the previous two
months he made 344 calls to her
All those calls were part of
high phone bills the county was
paying on behalf of Mr. Griffis.
Commissioner Alex Robin-
son raised the issue during a
meeting last month, pointing out
that two checks were written

the other for $276.51 to pay
Nextel Communications.
The bills belonged to Mr.
Until then, his monthly phone
charges were nearly always in

Monday, is for $130.

the board of commissioners, has

(See accompanying article
for fi.rther details.)
The meeting is scheduled to
begin at 3 pm Thursday in the
commission chambers on Third
Street, behind the courthouse.
Despite evidence to the con-
trary, Mr. Dopson said he is
standing by his assertion last
week that he had borrowed Ms.
Linster's phone because his was
not working, and that Mr. Griffis
was calling him.

Oh, Christmas tree!

Just where did we

acquire your magic
You C7l



The tradition of setting up and
decorating a tree during the
Christmas season is so familiar
that most people never wonder
about the origin of this unusual
custom. Here are some interesting
facts about the background of that
Christmas tree you probably have
standing in your living room.
/ Evergreen fir trees have been
used to celebrate winter festivals
for thousands of years by both
pagans and Christians. The green
branches symbolized the return of
spring and came to represent ever-
lasting life.
Christmas trees as we know
them may have evolved from
Paradise Trees representing the
Garden of Eden that appeared in
the medieval German mystery
plays used to teach illiterate peo-
ple stories from the Bible.
Martin Luther is believed to be,
the first person to.bring a Christ-
mas tree into the home.
Trees in Germany were first
decorated with.edible things such
as goldleaf-covered apples and
gingerbread. Glassmakers eventu-
ally began crafting ornaments that
looked like the original decora-
fions. A manger holding the Baby
Jesus crowned the top of the tree,
later giving.\wa\ to the more com-
monly used star or angel.
Prince Albert, Queen Vic-
toria's German husband, popular-
ized the use of Christmas trees
when he set up a decorated tree at
Wiqnsor Castle in 1841. The
Victorians were especially foidd of
decorating trees with lighted can-
dies to represent stars.
In 1895, because of the constant
danger of fire, American tele-
phone engineer Ralph E. Morris
developed electric Christmas tree
lights as a safer alternative to can-

Dear Editor:
In response to an article in last
week's edition, I am shocked at the
audacity of three businessmen who
contend that their investment in
impro\ ing their property is grounds
to force the City of Macclenny to
provide parking.
In the past it has been the in-
vestor who was'the risk taker, not
the taxpayer. All three investors
chose to invest in downtown fully
aware of the parking limitations
when they made the choice. I was
told that the owner of Calendars
established it as an investment and
intended to sell it for a profit-until
he realized it was a viable entity.
He backed out of the sale and
apparently quickly proceeded with
a plan to force Macclenny taxpay-
ers to solve his parking "problem."
The Christmas Light Parade two

weeks ago proves that people will
park and walk, as we have done for
years. Cleverly, the '"Wal-Mart
Supercenter" excuse is used'to
evoke the do\ ntowvn-busines3s-
area-will-suffer theme.
I'm sorry, as a taxpayer I don't
choose to bail out private business-
men, especially when some of
them obviously don't have the best
interest of the community at heart.
From where did Danny Lamb's
totally irrelevant comment about
Heritage Park come?
FYI, Walter S. Marder of the
Florida Division of Historical Re-
sources says that he has not seen a
more community-oriented project.
He also states Heritage Park is the
"best" that he, has seen. He should
know: Florida Park personnel have
assured me that Heritage Park will

made America's official national
Christmas tree. The tree stands

Every year at Christmas, little
brothers, sister and I looked for-

Club Christmas Tree lot.
We always went at night. The
air was musky with the scent of
pine pitch. and under banners of
tiny, white lights, our parents let
us roam freely among the rows of
Scotch pine and Frasier fir for a
couple of hours as they chatted
with friends and looked for the
perfect tree. Purchasing the tree,
watching it be lovingly wrapped
and bundled and loaded onto the
roof of the car for the trip home
was almost a reverent affair.
Decorating the tree was my
favorite acti\ ity. Each year, our
handmade candy canes, snowmen,
angels and bells made in elemen-
tary school from cardboard, foil,
glitter, pipe cleaners and painted

Dear Editor;:
As, a faithful, subscriber and
reader of the Press, I was surprised
that the December 8 edition of your
newspaper failed to mention the
December 7, 1941 surprise attack
on Pearl Harbor.
Veterans of World War II are
dying at an estimated rate of 1000
to 1500 a day. Shouldn't they be
remembered and acknowledged?

(Indeed they should and the newspaper has
published numerous stories about local
SWWII veterans over the years. Pearl Harbor
isn't likely to be mentioned unless the story
related somehow to Baker County.)

Seat belts

should be

a "choice
Dear Editor:
While taking my daughter to
school this morning, I was stopped
in the drop-off line at Macclenny
Elementary by .a Baker County
officer. She handed me a lollipop
with a flyer attached telling me to
buckle up it could save my life.
The key word here is could. I
disagree w irh 'the aih W requiring that
I wear a seatbelt. I researched on
the Internet and statistics show that
in 40,000 fatal accidents last year,
only about half could have been
prevented had the occupants been
wearing a seatbelt.
So why should the law force me
to wear a seatbelt, which may or
may not save my life? I believe it
should be each individual's right to
make that decision.
I smoke, even though I know I
'may or may not get cancer. But I
make that choice everytime I light
one, the same as I make a choice
everytime I drive my vehicle.
Our days are already numbered,
with or without a seatbelt, and that
is something we can't prevent with
or without a seatbelt.

the restaurant.

Juvenile age male students were
arrested for attacks on teachers at
Baker County Middle School in
separate incidents on successive

Aging has reinstated health bene-
fits for its employees following a
request for an additional $30,000
above the amount annually allocat-
ed by the county.
The funding request was ap-
proved by the county and the health
coverage became officially active
November 1, 2005.
According to Kacie Kennedy,
the council's fiscal officer, under
the current plan, the organization
will be able to cover 50% employ-
ee costs and hopes to be able to
cover more in the future.
If employees desire additional
coverage or place dependents on
their plan, they will be responsible
for the extra cost.
Covering employee costs for the
remainder of the current enroll-
ment year will require $17,000.
The councils board of directors is
now in discussion as to the best use
of the remaining $12,000.
Following discussion at the
board's meeting December 9, the
most likely use of the remaining
money will go toward providing

Hey Pop,
Here we are again, birthday time!
Typically around this time of year, we
all reflect back So I thought, why break
from tradition?
Let me bring you up to speed.
Your "Baby-Cat".has growth up so
much! She's grown a country mile
since the last time you saw her! Can
you believe that she's cheerleading
now? She's also adjusting very'well to
private school and you would not be-
lieve how well she has stepped into the
role of. "big sister." You should be
Layna, my goodness. That one is a
handful, much like her mother. Let's
keep that last part our secret, shall we?
She reminds me of myself at that age,
enjoys video games, hates to study and
has those long eyelashes to bat whenev-
er she needs to get her way. World,
,,) k ok li,. : "
Talk about "'look out." Your grand-
son is another one i, .itlchli oi fiir Lit-
tie guy has been cursel wuhll tlone Ihair,

Until the Fat Lady Sings

The Jaguars got what they're 'wanted since the first game of the season when the\ lost to the
Indianapolis Colts 10-3.
They got a rematch on their home soil. There \\as a lot of hype and a lot of loose talk flying around
all .aeek as to w hat the Jaguar defense would do to the Ind\ offense.
As it turned out, the Indy offense looked pretty darned good on the w ay to a 26-18 v.in.
You don't sta\ undefeated with this much of the season gone %without being top notch, and the\
pro\ ed it.
The Jaguars did a pretty good job of stopping everyone but Mar' in Harrison. Unfortunately. w\.hen
you can't stop Marvin Harrison he can do a lot of damage as he proved on Sunday.
The Jaguars didn't play badly, the' just didn't put up the kind of fight defensively that the\ had in
Indianapolis in week one or against Pittsburgh.
The Jaguars did a pretty good job w ith Edgerrin James but it's hard to stop all aspects of the Colts'
David Garrard once again showed he is capable of running the offense. The fact that he is the back-
up quarterback hasn't been the least bit glaring. Garrard showed a lot of poise, and his running made a
difference in the Jaguar offense. He's a tough guy and he showed it as he shrugged off five tacklers on
his to a touchdown.
Fred Taylor was ineffective and Greg Jones only managed around 50 yards.
The Jaguars may get another shot at the Colts if the) make it into the playoffs.
Sunday 's loss by the high flying San Diego Chargers further muddied the \w ild card picture, but one
thing is certain. A trip to the playoffs for the first time in fi'e years is firml\ in the Jaguars' grasp. They
ha\ e the easiest remaining schedule of an) of the pla off contenders. They just can't slip up.
The Jaguars have had a recent history of play ing up or do\\ n to the competition. If the\ face a tough
team the\ rise to the occasion. If they face patsies they tend to play like patsies themselIes. As
Indianapolis showed on Sunday, the w\\a that you become a higher level team is consistency.
Last year, the Jaguars missed out on the playoffs b\ one game. Let's hope they learned a valuable les-
son from that and don't slip in an\ of their remaining three games.
They host the 49ers on Sunday, travel to Houston the following week and then return to Jacksonville
for a rematch %% ith Tennessee on the last game of the season.
I'd hate to come up against Steve. McNair and the Titans with a playoff spot hanging in the balance.
It sure would be nice to wrap up the \ ild card slot before that final game.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS Thursday. December 15. 2005 Page Eleven


The Wildcats wrestling team hosted the 16-team Ironcat tourna-
ment December 9 and 10 in honor of James "Turtle" Windell, a
Wildcat wrestler who died from an auto accident earlier this year.
Suwannee County won the event. The Cats lost six matches, but
defeated Bradford County in the two-day tournament inside the
Baker High School gym.
The Cats wrestled well; four of. their six losses were close
matches, according to coach Joe VanVactor.
"Hey, we could go 1 and 20, but as long as that one win was
against Bradford, I'd be happy," he said.

'Narnia' more gentle than'Lord

Press Features
I can still remember the first
time I read the Chronicles of Nar-
nia bv C.S. Lew is. It \\as in ele-
mentarl school and mv mother
had bought the set through the
book fair.
I fell in lose after the first read-
through The story is enchanting
and timeless
E er since I heard late last year
that Disne'y w\as in production on
,\Ninua. Tthe Lion. The ItitchI anl

ticipating and dreading the release
As a huge fan of the second

story in the :Narniaseries, I
couldn't wait to see the story on
the big screen, but it had to be
done right.
The mo ie is set in the throes
of the WW II England bombing
raids. The Pes ensies, Peter, Su-
san, Edmond and LucN are evacu-
ated to liLe in the country. They
moe into a beautiful old mansion
\with a stuff\ housekeeper and a
kind professor
The children discover a
wardrobe that houses a doorwaN
to the magical %world of Narnia
that has been locked in a \winter
for over 100 \ears. And it is the
yucky kind of \ inter, the sort

with no Christmas.
The winter is because of the
evil queen Jadis (aka The White.
Witch) played by Tilda Swinton.
The children are thrown into'the
middle of a series of etecnts that
includes talking beavers, a \?.ar
and Asian, the king of all beasts.
He is a lion voiced b\ Lian Nee-
son, and is not a tame lion.
The casting \w:as well done in
using British children w ho are
ne%\ comers to the screen. I v. as
little disappointed that Jadis \as
as not e~il incarnate as I had
hoped. Swinton was almost like-
able enough to break bread w ith.
Not a good attribute if you're
pla' ing a villain.
The makeup %\as a little rough
around the edges as well. At one
point, I could see the costume
seam on the centaur's bell\.
Most people \ ho go into this
mo\ ie expecting something from
the Lord of the Ringscloth will
be disappointed. There \s one
battle in the w% hole mo\ ie and
takes up about 10 minutes.
Narnia is more gentle and in-
nocent, but is still brilliant Let's.
face it, these are four children all
under the age of 16 They're not
going to start gutting and dis-
membering the enemy.
