The ever-rising cost of sports for our kids


BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
With another Christmas passed, many Baker
County parents were again reminded just how
much it can cost to outfit their little tykes who
may be dreaming of becoming the next Peyton
Manning. Sh.ltu iilk O'Neal or Alex Rodriguez.
Ho\\ c(ct, biuyNig a new basketball or a base-
ball glove or pair of football cleats is only part of
what can add up to be a significant price tag, al-
beil one that parents are willing to pay.
But sometimes the incidental costs can make
a d ti(fc.t ,.c
For instance, Marcheta and Gordon Crews of
Macclenny have three daughters involved in
Ss t .
Ms, Ciews says the direct cost of sports


doesn't bother her, nor do the ancillary costs
such as travel. The problem is that her girls'
grandparents can't watch their granddaughters.
"They can't afford the $8 to go see their
granddaughter play," she said.
Crews' daughters are Jessica, 19, who plays
softball for Lake City Community College;
Kassie, 18, a senior at Baker County High
School who participates in softball, volleyball
and weightlifting; and Chelsea, 13, a middle
school cheerleader.
With that many children in that many sports,
the costs can quickly add up, although Ms.
Crews couldn't come up with a total amount.
On the other hand, single mom Karen Mallo-
ry's son Austin has participated in just one sport
- YMCA Youth Soccer League last fall and it


cost $65 to sign-up because she doesn't belong
to theY. Members pay $25. The fee pays for a
jersey and award.
In addition, soccer players are required to
have black shorts or sweat pants, and socks. The
shorts cost $12, the sweats $14-$25, and a pair
of socks $6 at the Sports Shak in Macclenny.
Optional equipment for soccer players include
cleats (which can cost as much as $75) and shin
guards ($15).
Assuming a modestly priced pair of cleats,
and excluding sweat pants, the cost for one child
to play one sport would be about $133.
The sign-up fees are the same for basketball,
flag football and t-ball through the YMCA,
which is a not-for-profit organization and

How the
Top 10 are
chosen..
It may not pass for
scientific analysis, but
the Top 10 you see in
the New Years paper
each year is the subjec-
tive judgement of the
people at the newspaper
closest to the events.
That would be, in the
case of 2005, Mike
Rinker, Laura Beth
Briner and Jim Mc-
Gauley.
Mike compiles a list of
the Top 16, and the
three of them rank the
stories (in a highly secret
vote) in order of impo-
rance. The Top 10 end
up as, well, the Top 10.

He ran up more than -....
$800 in charges over
three months, but
claimed they were busi-
ness-rclated.
TheL Plre., !Ihowe\ er,
reported the calls had
been made to the cell
phone belonging to
Christy Linster, Mac-
clenny city secretary and
once touted as the heir
apparent to the city man-
ager's job.

Robinson, who pushed for the fir-

Mr. Griffis pushed the ethical en-
velope.
Commissioners expect to begin
searching for his replacement in
January.

3 Double murder
A Macclenny man took part
in the kidnapping and mur-
der of a Jacksonville couple in Ju-
ly.
Bruce Nixon Jr., 18, led police
to a grave just over the Flori- .
da/Georgia line in Charlton Coun-
ty where he and three accomplices
left Reggie and Carol Sumner
buried alive.
Among the alleged accomplices
is Alan Wade; who lived in Mac-
clenny until a couple of years ago.
Also arrested were Michael Jack-
son and Tiffany Cole of South
Carolina.
The Sumners, both 61 and in.
poor health, were forced at gun-
point into the trunk of their car,
then driven to the Georgia woods
and buried.
The motive was robbery.
Jacksonville prosecutors said
they will seek the death penalty
against those involved.


are coming!

A London-based company an-
nounced in late November that. it is
building a $24 million roof tile
production facility near Sanderson
that is expected to produce 81 jobs
and inject millions of dollars into


Baker County's economy.
In exchange, the company is
getting free land and property tax.
rebates.
Officials from Hanson Roof
Tile said the plant, which is ex-
pected to be completed by Sep-
tember 2006, will pa '.\ workers an
average salary of $29,000 and
add $14.2 million to the local
economy over its first five years.
That amount represents a 1 percent
increase in the count 's economy.
To lure the company here, the
Baker County Development Com-
mission agreed to turn over 15:4
acres it owns in Enterprise West,
located south of US 90, near just
east of Sanderson. The industrial '
park is already home to the Insteel
(formerly Wiremil) and Sanderson
Pipe.
In addition, the county ap-
proved property tax rebates for
Hanson 75 percent for the first
five years, then 50 percent for the
next five.
SThe state will also kick in an in-
centive through its Rural Econom-
ic Development Initiative.
"The incentives were a very,
very.big factor," said Hanson's
John Quigley.

5 Cutting the meth

.
Nine local residents were
'among 11 arrested February 28 for
selling methamphetamine. Two
others were brought in later.
Dubbed Operation Sawmill, the,
bust was part of an investigation
by a federal task force that includ-
ed local officers. They traced the
drug ring from 2001 until the ar-

Ga. James ran the sawmill that

name.

6 Fresh NEFSH


Northeast Florida State Hospital
has been an important if not the
most important economic influ-
ence in Baker County for nearly a
half-century, employing about
1100 people. It is the state's largest
mental hospital.
Bud Stotler, the hospital's ad-
ministrator for 21 years, retired in
February. He was replaced by
Steve Kennedy, who started at
NEFSH as a ward aide 35 years
ago.
However, Mr. Kennedy faces
mandatory retirement in three
years.

7 Landfill plan is
trashed

Frank Darabi, the county's'
garbage guru, thought it would be
a good idea to put a construction
debris landfill.on SR 229 just
north of the Union Count \ line, so
he filed an application to build one


that he a aa pri\ ate citizen would d
have control over.
It tLrned out. ho% c\ er, that
n&arb) resident-s'didh'r think it was
such a good idea.'. '(.': '
As Mr. Darabi later put it in a
two-page statement: "I miscalcu-
lated the level of opposition and
for that I am sorry."
A smartly organized grassroots
effort, led by neighboring resident
Michael Crews, notified and mobi-
lized residents in an extended area
around the proposed site. In-
creased truck traffic on roads lead-
ing to CR 229 was one of the is-
sues presented to those not in the
immediate vicinity of the site.
A packed house at a south
Sanderson church sent a message
that Mr. Darabi heard loud and
clear..
He withdrew his application.

9 Cannon bails


Saying "my enthusiasm got me
into trouble," Macclenny City
Commissioner B.J. Cannon re-
signed in May, dismayed by "in-
consistencies in enforcing city or-
dinances, indifference toward en-
forcing building codes."'
One of his primary concerns
was clear-cutting land for develop-
ment, then replacing those mature
trees with tiny saplings.
Mr. Cannon took office in Janu-
ary 2002 on a coin toss, and was
unopposed for election the follow-
ing year.
He blamed city officials for at-
tacks on his character, leading to.

10 Forever being"
Two Baker County Sheriff's
deputies in March arrested chron-
ic-felon Michael Harvey on out-
standing warrants.
He resists, they react.
The result is a seemingly never-
ending FBI investigation into Mr.
Harvey's claim that the officers vi-
olated his civil rights.
The sheriff's office completed
an internal investigation but is
withholding the results until the
FBI releases its findings.
Seven months later, a jury
found Mr. Harvey guilty of resist-
ing with violence but not guilty on
two counts of battery on a police
officer.
Several days later, Circuit Judge'
David Giant sentenced him to ten
years in prison.
We're still waiting on the FBI.

FROM THE 'Bti I t LATE THAN NEVER' LETTER FILES...

Quesons colletiv mentality' of Harve jury


h writhm ase mi


odwith thenew


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


Christmas is over and presents
are littering my house. I get very
sentimental right after Christmas.
I'm hot really sure why. Maybe it's
because so many things are the
same down the years. In some
ways it doesn't matter what year it
is and yet each year is subtly differ-
ent.
Christmas is all about continu-
ums. Trees, lights, gifts very little
changes and yet everything
changes. It's inevitable that as we
grow older we look at the holidays
in a slightly different light. I'm'
more mature than my children, but
that doesn't mean I'm any more
sentimental.
My son Spencer, for example,
can tell you where every Christmas
decoration should be and is upset if
it isn't in its place (Tradition #5).
Just because Dylan is 17 doesn't
mean that he won't count the pre-
sents under the tree and lord it over
his brother and sister if he has more
than them (Tradition #14).
Sara, who is home from college,
will still put on her monkey paja-
mas and dance around in front of
the hearth singing Christmas carols
the same way that she did when she
was six years old (Tradition #3).
Only the date has changed. In
some ways, it doesn't matter
whether it's 1958 and I'm four
years old and my dad is holding me
up to put the'star on the tree or
whether it's 2005 and my children
are trying to decide whose turn it is
to put the star on the tree and none
of them needs to be held up any
more.
In other ways, it matters a great
deal. At my age, the holidays are a
montage of memories, some dim,
others crystal clear. I remember
certain toys and smells and tastes.
I remember a plastic robot
which fit over a kid's hand like a
puppet and could pick things up
with its claws. I remember floors
covered in wrapping paper, just the
:,.way,rnine is now. I remember
smells of ginger and spice and ham
cooking with cloves, and roasting
turkey; which is the way my
kitchen smells right now as my
wife bakes a turkey in the oven.
I am connected to my children's
memories in the same way that my
mom and dad are connected to
mine. In my kids' memories I. am
doing the holding, they are placing
'the star. They are sitting on my lap


while I read The Night Before
Christmas (Tradition #6). We are
driving in the car and singing
Christmas carols. Somebody is
invariably a Grinch. and doesn't
want to sing, but is -brow .beaten
into it by the others.
These are all the same memories
I have of Christmases with my
mom and dad I shake my head in
dismay at all the ridiculous hoopla
the phrases Merry Christmas and
Happy Holidays have been getting
in the media. Some groups griped
about the phrase Merry Christmas
being replaced by Happy Holidays
at certain retail stores and even
planned boycotts. It just stunk of
politics lightly dusted with religion.
I firmly\ believe that most Am-
:ericans did what I did just
shrugged and went on decorating
and wishing people Merry Christ-
mas and singing carols. It's always
Merry Christmas and always will
be.
My children are all lying around
the house resting from Christmas.
Our family tradition is to go on the
Tour of Christmas homes. In other
words,' we woke up early and
opened presents, then hosted break-
fast for all the Norman relatives.
I'm reading and drinking a glass
of egg nog (Tradition #82). I like
egg nog,:but it -would never occur
to me any of at least 360'other days
to drink the stuff. I'm content. I've
got my family around me and there
was licorice in my stocking. As far
as I'm concerned, the spirit of
Christmas is alive and well. I've
got a lot of be thankful for and I


(The writer's commentary below is a bit belate, refer-
ring to a jury verdict back in October acquitting defen-
dant Michael Han ey on two counts of battery of police
and convicting him of resisting arrest with violence. She
is responding to an editorial comment on, the irony
resulting from the conflicting verdicts.)
Dear Editor:
I must comment on the excellent commen-
tary i, the Press by Mlichael Rinker on a "stu-
pid jury" back in late October.
I am not from Baker County, and after read-
ing that commentary do not want to be. Mr.
Rinker was correct in his review of a jury's
action on the case of a felon (Michael Harvey)
resisting police officers in the local bar.
How many times ,must a felon follow his
old deviant ways before 1he public says


"enough!"
Police put themselves in harm's way for us,
and the reward in this case would beto imply
it's okay to allow the perpetrator to cry "bru-
tality" and point to the 20 stitches that dot his
head because he became belligerent.
I do not believe policemen with reputations
in a small town nould all at once become the
bad guys. Whose reputation is on the line
here? Certainly not Michael Harvey's- there
are not enough adjectives to describe his felo-
nious behavior..,
I cannot imagine the collective mentality of
a jury that would vindicate this sort of provo-
cation by a criminal against officers of the law.
?4They shouldd have taken the blindfolds off and
:realized the scales of-justice are tipped heavily


Dear Editor:
I am 20 years old and a survivor of Cystic Fibrosis.
First, I would like to apologize for the lateness of this letter. I have
given much thought to the subject.
On September 29, 2005 your newspaper printed a photo and cutline
story on the "Great Strides Walk" in Macclenny the previous Saturday.
I have supported this cause in the past and take much pride in raising
awareness of CF. However, much to my surprise, I along with several
other walkers, was featured in the front page photo.
As much as I was delighted to see this event make the front page,
and see myself in the paper, I was much troubled over the use .of the
word "victim" referring to myself and others who have been diagnosed


on the side of the offender.
Heaven help you if you are in a situation
requiring force to quell an offender. Were
these jurors "just out" or did the photo of the
20 stitches hide the evidence?.
Kudos to Mr. Rinker and shame on juries
that allow Mr. Harvey and thugs like him to
become the victims. When that happens, we
all lose.
I was just passing through Baker County
and I feel for the lack of support law enforce-
ment received. I wonder what sort of "ordi-
nary people" make up the county's population,
judging by the jury's action.
N"'" L. COLLINS

with CF.
I do not consider myself a victim of anything. I keep a positive out-
look on all things involved in my life. To have a thought process of
negativity brings on depression and poor mindsets.
To consider me a victim to a disease would in essence be calling me
"dead" to something, which I am not!'
When someone has had breast cancer and is still living they are con-
sidered "survivors."
I am still a living, breathing, alive being, thus I will never consider
myself a "victim" of Cystic Fibrosis.
I am a survivor.

Guardians 'double up'


(From page one)
Guardian ad Litem program.
Being a guardian is a sobering
and enlightening experience. The
Mabes found out quickly that
many children live in unfortunate
and even life-threatening environ-
ments.
"You have to- learn to leave
your biases and sensibilities at the
door and just focus on the kids,"
said Norman. "You can't spend
your time being personally offend-
ed by the behavior of the parents
or judging the sometimes less than
ideal state of the children's homes.

Rare arrest for
a violation of
peddler's law
Two Valdosta, Georgia men
were arrested December 22, charg-
ed with rare violation of the coun-
ty's retail peddling ordinance that
prohibits solicitation from dusk to
dawn.
Deputy Ben Anderson said he
recognized a vehicle description
When Deputy Alison Tomlinson
stopped a maroon van near North-
wood Apartments just before 9:00
that evening.
The deputy earlier responded to
a complaint at an unspecified loca-
tion that two suspects were solicit-
ing door-to-door and acting suspi-
ciously.
They were at the front door of a
residence asking if "the man of the
house was in," according to the
complainant. The report did not
* specify, what they were selling,
however officers later noted they
had merchandise in the rear of the
van.
Booked were Carl Miller, 22,
and Jason Yarbrough, 25, and pol-
ice noted there was a discrepancy
in the latter's Social Security num-
ber.
Mr. Yarbrough also had two
driver's licenses issued by the state
of Georgia; both are suspended.


"At first it took some getting
used to," Norman recalls. "A large
percent of the domestic situations
brought to our attention are prob-
lematic because of drug abuse.
Many of the babies we work to
place in foster care are born
addicted to cocaine. It was a world
we weren't familiar with, but one
.we had to learn to deal with if we
were to benefit the children."
The Mabes might handle cases
individually, but like to work as a
team. They often spend evenings
after dinner at a small table in their
kitchen, going over the files of
children whose cases they are cur-
rently assigned to.
"It's goQd having Helen along
with me, says Norman, "Some-
times she notices things I don't
catch. It's helpful to be able to com-
pare notes after visiting a child."
When the Mabes aren't work-
ing to better the life of a child,
they pursue tth er interests.
Helen enjoys their four horses and
dogs that live on the property
north of Macclenny near Mac-
edonia.
Norman, though he can no
longer eat normally, greatly enjoys
cooking and bakes wonderful
cakes.
"I can't physically eat, but I still
love to taste." he declares with an
enthusiastic smile. He also keeps
physically busy, usually improving
their property. "He's always got a
project going, says Helen.
But their real passion is for the
children, whose lives they work
hard to improve.
'This isn't for everyone, but,it's
very important. It's definitely a
special calling," they believe.

Tips on how to save money


BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
Children's sports can cost a lot of money but
there are ways to sa'.e money.
At Baker County High School. fundraisers
such as the Wildcat Card can help pa\ for foot-
ball or basketball equipment.
The card is sold b\ athletes for $10-$20. Buy-
ers use it for discounts at local areas of busnes.
If the player sells enough. he or she is able to
pa\ for the equipment package.
In addition to the cards, one mother said her
son sold advertisements to offset the cost of his
baseball equipment.
Each team has a fund that can be bolstered
through fundraisers, such as the recent "strong-
man" competition that benefitted the weight lift-
ing team.
Parents are often advised to get a sponsor for
their child.
"Wirh m\ tw.o girls, it ~\as hard to get a spon-
sor for one. let alone tw\o." said Marcheta Crew s.
w.ho had tmo daughters in the fast pitch softball


program at the same time.
"It was hard finding a sponsor with everyone
else looking for one at the same time."
Here are a few other vwas to save money) :
Buy used equipment.
Pla\ It Again Sports in Jacksonville offers all
sorts of used equipment for sale. Though the store
is most\ new items, there are used items in every
section. They also buy used equipment.
One outlet for sporting needs that is usually
not utilized is Goodw'ill or other thrift stores.
Items are not consistently kept in stock, but they
do get sporting equipment. Your best bet would
be to call ahead.
Use hand-me-dow ns.
Former players often sell their items or pass
them on to current players.
"One \ear we didn't buy a whole package be-
cause we still had some stuff left from the year
before." Ms. Crews said.
Do not buy name brands.
As long as a shoe does the job, it doesn't have
to say "Nike" on the outside.


Cheerleaders must pay, as well


BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
Cheerleading, which is closely\ tied to sports.
also can dip into a family's w allet.
For a high school cheerleader, parents must
bu\ the proper (color coordinated) shoes and
socks, which cost $54. Uniforms are provided
by the school.
There are extras, too.
"We are thinking about doing shirts which
would cost $20," said Tara Rhoden. junior \ arsi-
ty coach. "If .we can raise enough money by do-
ing a fundraiser then \we can pa\ for them out of
our account. [but] I have found that most moms
would rather pa\ $201 than to do one."
The le\el at which most cheerleaders get
their start at is in the Youth Football League,
where the\ hav'e their own coaches, practices
and uniforms (unique to their teams.


The sign-up fee of $45 together w. ith the uni-
form, shoes and socks adds up to $100.
The youngg ladies also ha.e the option of
buying pictures, and competing for Miss
Princess at the Youth Da\.
Melinda Le\wis has e\iensi.e experience in
cheering.
"I'e had parents look at competitive cheer
prices and say 'That's too much.'" she said.
"But they're been in'ol\ed in competitive soft-
ball and said it \was more expensive and re-
quired more practices."
Ms. Lewis e een has a few students looking at
college scholarship opportunities with their'
cheerleading.
Ms. Le is workedd at the YMCA and orga-
nized a.cti' cities and camps for youth.
There ,.'as such a response to tumbling
camps that she started her business. American
Cheer and Dance.


Admission $$$ add to cost


BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
When parents pay for sports equipment, it's
obvious what the, get for their money .
Eiu B htij'jDbiudt tl'e-"llt'1e\ "'Fe*'" p' 1rfl ",'. a:th
their children plaj ?
Admission to Baker County High School
football games is $5 per person and goes to-
wards a number of things.
Memorial Stadium's light bill alone averages
$742.80 a month during football season.
The field is also used b\ the Baker County
Middle School and the Youth Football League.
There are also events like the Cat Grovl I which
use the lights as well.
Part of the admission money goes to game
officials. w. which cost $2300 for the entire season.
Gatekeepers are paid $400 and $150 for var-
sity and junior varsity respectively.
Whatever is left goes toward "all costs for all
sports." said BCHS Athletic Director Nlel6d\


Coggin
\blle\ball, basketball, softball and baseball
charge $4. "An\ sport that has officials, we
charge admission," she said.
.. .__.Admisso.ii. .m iddle.school Iflabalgames.^,-j
is $4.
"'We're basically hae the same list [of ex-
penses] as the high school." said BCMS Athlet-
ic Director Jon Mobley, although the scale is
somew\\hat smaller.
An\ amount left over goes towards equip-
ment and uniforms.
The same is true for volleyball and basketball
eames, which had cost $3.
"We met as a conference and voted to raise
admission to $4 for all sports." Mobley said.
The middle school's dated gym, which was
recently\ refloored, does not receive admission
money.
The Youth Football League charges $1.50 for
adults to their games. That also goes towards
use of the field.


Parents p

(from page 1)
charges no admission.
Soccer and basketball are
played in both fall and spring. For
basketball, players need shoes and
black shorts. T-ball requires
cleats.-
Youth sports are where prices
escalate.
A Baker County family 'ith
two children each playing youth
baseball, football .and soccer
Should be shelling out well over
$1000 per year in sports costs.
Here's how it adds up:
Little League baseball registra-
tion is $45 for one player, $65 for
'two.
The league provides team
shirts 'and hats and basic equip-
ment such as helmets, bats and
catcher equipment.
S..Players must have-pants ($11-
$14). socks ($4), glo es ($22-
$55), spikes ($30-$40) and athlet-
iccups($11). i .
.In some' instances, team spon-
sors kick in,some money.
"We w' ish w\e could do more,"
Said player agtnt Teri High, "but
after maintaining the field and the
insurance, there's not much left."
The Youth Football League
sign-up .fee is $45 per child. The
money goes toward league-pro-
vided jersey and socks.
However, players are responsi-
ble for a helmet ($60'-$65), shoul-
der pads ($35-$57), ty\o pairs of
pants (one for games. one, for
practice) at $19-$24 apiece, cleats
($30), knee, thigh, hip pads for
pants ($15)..
Baker County Middle School
pro\ ides riost of the..football
equipment helmets, pads, game
and practice jerseys and pants.
Players must furnish their own
cleats ($20-$45) and cups ($8).
The volleyball and basketball
teams also supply nearly every-
thing'the players need. They must.
have their own shoes and socks.
V Volleyball players also have
had to buy their ow'n knee pads -
an important option for the sport -
but BCMS Athletic Director Jon
.I' Moblev said the school w ill likely
begingi n offering hem next season.


Zy for kids

Baker County High School,
which offers the widest array of
sports, generally hands out uni-
forms in all cases.
"We order what they need, they
buy what they want," said Athlet-
icDirector Melody Coggin.
In tennis and volleyball, how-
ever,. players order all or part of
the uniform ($30 for volleyball
shorts and $70 for tennis shirt and
bottoms) but keep the clothes af-
ter the season ends.
"I 'wvish we could buy the'
whole uniform'for the tennis kids,
but we don't bring in any gate
money," said tennis coach Karla
Amburgey.
For most sports, parents have
the option of buying equipment
through the school. The cost is ab-'
sorbed through fundraisers or paid
dut of pocket by the parent.
The school offers a package




A


to play...

and covers helmets, gloves and
sliders, although players aren't re-
quired to purchase the package to
play. Other items such as cleats
($40-$90), socks ($4), and belts
($5.) are the parents' responsibil-
ity.
Basketball players can pur-
chase warm-up clothing and other
accessories through the school.
Again, players can go through the
school or shop around.
The price of the package varied
from ear to year, says coach
Charles Ruise, depending on
fundraisers and deals involving
sporting goods suppliers like Adi-
das.
In volleyball, shorts, socks,
shoes and knee pads can be or-
,dered through the school for $30.
In cross country, football,
'. \restlitig. basketball, track,'base-
ball, softball, cross country,

.with all necessary equipment, in-
cluding items such as socks or
shoes, rwarm-up clothing or hel-
mets. -
The purpose is to have match-
ing equipment for all players.
In! softball, for instance. Ms:
Crewc said the high school pro-
' \ ided the jerseys, pants, shorts
and bats.
SThe package costs $130.$4.0


w weightlifting and bowling the
school pro ides the necessary
equipment.
Again, tennis is' ah exception.
Players must have their o\.n rac-
quet (beginning at $50).
For wrestling, the school pro-
\ ides the singlet (uniform), warm-
up suits, and head gear. Players
must bu\ mandatory regulation

Cats boys basketball hopes to begin

turnaround at First Coast Classic


The Baker High boys basket-
ball team is hoping to reclaim
Some lost mojo nhen it hosts the
2005 Florida First Coast Classic
December 29-31.
Until last Near, the Wildcats
had never lost a game in their hol-
iday tournament.
This year, ho..eter, would bea
good time for the Catsito return to


form because the first third of
their season has 'fallen short of ex-
pectations..
They stand at 2-6 (1-3 in dis-
trict) after a brutal opening stretch
during which they played seen
of those eight games on the road.
Coach Charles Ruise said he
thinks his players are starting to
get on the same page, and expects
them to finish the
S season strong.
; ,, Other than a
S mid-January tour-
nament in Jack-
son\ ille, ten of
the Cats' last 12
games are at
Some, including
five against dis-
trict opponents.
Asked if he
i t plans- to use the
i I, Classic to experi-
1 ment with his
i team, he laughed
li .. ,- and said, "No,
.. .. w e're in it 0to %in.
SWe're always',
IA looking to win."
The first round
of the tournament
S, 1 begins Thursday
at 2 pm %\ith
Providence play-
ing Universit3.
Christian, fol-
low'ed at 4 pm by
Englewood ver-
sus Fernandina
Beach, then Cres-
... cent City plays


Paxon.
The Wildcats take the court
against Union County at 8 pmi.
After the tournament, they re-
turn to the regular season sched-
ule at Ridgeview January 6. The
,next night, they begin a string of
home games against Hilliard. who
they defeated in their season
opener.





Jacksom ille Jaguars defensive tack-
Ic. Mlarctis Stroud, flipped his SU' De-
ccmber 24 on I-10 near Sandersoin.
Stroud overtook a trick towing a,
tradelir in the right lane on his way to
his hometown of Barney, Ga. He
clipped the left end of the trailer with,
the right front bumper of his SUV
The SUV flipped, but Stroud was
Swearing a seatbelt and suffered minor'
injuries to his left arm, rte occupants
of the truck \ie re uninjured.
: Stroud, who was juist picked for his
third.Pro Bowl, was ticketed for care-
less driving. He is not expected to miss
anv practice.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS Thursday, December 29, 2005 Page Sixteen

Out as projects manager
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
Bobby Hancock of Macclenny, who'd been serving as the county's spe-
cial projects manager, resigned Tuesday morning to spend more time with
his wife and focus more on their home-crafts business.
Mr. Hancock denied rumors that he resigned because he was unhappy
with the recent firing of County Manager Jason Griffis.
"I've been mulling this over for about a month; maybe it's just this time
of the year leads self-reflection," he said.
When he was hired to handle code enforcement for the county, it was
supposed to be a part-time job, Mr. Hancock said, but it became practical-
ly full-time when he began working on developing the St. Mary's Shoals
Park and putting in time on county utilities grants.
"I wasn't looking for another career," he said.
County Commission Chairman Alex Robinson also denied the Griffis
firing had anything to do with Mr. Hancock's situation.
Mr. Robinson took the lead in the firing, and some speculated that he
would rid the county commission corridors of those who were close to Mr.
Griffis.
Last week, he directed' Mr. Hancock to vacate his office in the county
building and return to the building department.
"The rumor is probably on the street, but it did not occur to me," Mr.
Robinson said.
"I told Bobby he was welcome to stay... and that I appreciate what he's
done here."
Mr. Robinson said the rumor can probably be traced to some of Mr.
Griffis' sympathizers "trying to keep stirring the pot."
He said he doesn't anticipate a problem finding someone to step in for
Mr. Hancock, saying "we have some smart people on our team."
"I'm hoping the commission pulls together to keep things moving for-
ward," he added.
Mr. Hancock is retired from the Baker County school system, where he
was a teacher, coach and administrator.
His final position there was director of facilities.
