Last week's release of FCAT
scores in reading and mathematics
revealed a mixed bag of results for
Baker County schools, but was
potentially troubling for parents
and teachers of fourth graders.
The percentage of fourth grade
students reading at grade level
dropped 15 points from last year's;
By comparison, the next biggest
drop was 4 percent among tenth
graders, while fifth and sixth grad-
ers each fell just one percent.
The remaining three grades saw
increases seventh (6 percent),
eighth (5 percent) and ninth (9 per-

The Reverend Tom Holohan, a
native New Yorker, is an evangeli-
cal minister, author, and former
television host currently residing in
Macclenny where he has family.
He believes the Bible today is
under a cultural attack as never be-
fore in its history, and one of the
root causes of the assault is the
publication of The Da Vinci Code.
The movie version of the book
opened last weekend to record
The story revolves around the
revelation of a mind bending code
hidden in the works of Renaissance
painter Leonardo Da Vinci. Fam-
ous paintings by Da Vinci, includ-
ing the Mona Lisa and The Last
Supper, figure prominently in the
solution to the mystery.
Seeking the truth behind the
code guarded by a secret society
results in a desperate race through
the cathedrals and castles of
Europe, and culminates with the
unveiling of an astonishing, shock-
ing truth concealed by the Catholic
Church for centuries.
"The canon (authority) of the 66
books that comprise the Bible is
currently under widespread, fla-
grant attack instigated by the pub-
lishing of this book," believes Rev.
He contends that a book such as
The Da Vinci Code, although pre-

fiction based on "fact," is an exam-

According to Rev. Holohan, the

accurately filter fact from fiction.

believes the minister. "The prob-

Rev. Holohan's program on the
Da Vinci Code was one topic pre-
sented during a four evening series
of messages of his "Set For De-
fense of the Gospel" program that
started May 28 at New Life
Church of God in Macclenny.
"I'm not presenting this informa-
tion as 'This is what I believe,'"
said Rev. Holohan. "I'm presenting
it as 'This is what fact is."'
According to Rev. Holohan, The'
Da Vinci Code story contains many
assertions statements or ideas
declared or stated positively, often
with no support or attempt at
During his Monday night pre-
sentation, the minister identified
many of the main assertions made
in the book that he takes exception
Then, based on his personal
research, he took those assertions
apart, disecting them historically,
archeologically and biblically.
For instance, according to The
Da Vinci Code story, the divinity
of Christ was not preached until
: the 3rd Century. Prior to that no
one, including the disciples,
believed that Jesuts Christ was God
That idea was constructed by
Emporer Constantine at the Coun-
cil of Nicea'(ancient Turkey) in
325 A. D. This council was a two
month meeting, during which.
Catholic bishops from many lands
hammered out doctrinal statements
and _beliefs in an attempt to unify

The Macclenny minister finds it'

"I've already encountered many

Human Baby running through
their heads, the veterinarians exam-

Insert creepy music here.
Instead of anything as mundane
as a human baby inside the belly of
the auck, what the vet seemed to
see staring back at her was the head
of ET. That's right, an alien.
And before you start wondering,
the vet was not Sigourney Weaver
and the alien didn't burst through
the lining of the duck's stomach
and eat everyone in the building.
Nothing so mundane.
The duck did, however, die,
whether from the effects of a bro-
ken wing or having a belly full of
alien was not clear. What also isn't
clear what happened to the duck
after that. If I were the vet; I might
just have taken a scalpel to see
what was going on inside its belly.
But no, instead, this intrepid sci-
entist did what any 21st century
intrepid scientist would do in this
situation. She decided to cash in on
it by calling in reporters and selling
the X-ray on Ebay.

If the public anger is there as
some suggest, 25 years of lack-
adaisical enforcement of this na-
tion's immigration laws will harm
both major political parties.,
And well it should.
Public opinion polls suggest
most Americans strongly favor
both enforcing existing laws on
immigration, while at the same
time they support letting others into
this country as long as they follow
the rules to become citizens.
The public also appears to have
no strong objection to allowing for-
eigners in on work or study visas,
this in spite of what most realize is
a continuing threat from radical
Islam and the host of other sects
and nations who wish us harm.
Americans like to believe their
culture abides in a sense of "fair
play," and that's what this is all
about. Amnesty for those already
here illegall, a requirement for
back taxes or other superficial
C"penalties" written into pending
legislation don't seem to do "much
to placate the average Joe.
Illegal means illegal; it doesn't
mean "undocumented"'or other
terms used to soften the context, of
what's really going on here.
Illegals come into the country
lacking the orientation into our cul-
ture, customs and governmental
institutions things necessary to
aspire to American citizenship.
You could make the case that
students go through many public
school systems today and don't get
that orientation, either, but that
misses the point.
People who want to come to the
United States like our ancestors did
must want also to assimilate into
this compelling and unique culture
that we have. We are many but we
are one. That's the reason people
got so incensed in early May when
the Mexican flag was defiantly.

tural inference, like waving a red
cape in front of a charging bull.
Were I a candidate to unseat a
member of Congress on the basis
of being soft on illegal immigra-
tioni, I'd play the "Mexican flag"
card at the drop of, shall we say, a
One, can get lost amid the rea-
sons given as to why we find our-
selves in this situation in 2006.
I believe our "head in the sand"
mentality meshed so well with the
politically correct dogma of multi-
culturism, thus making it "insensi-
tive" to come down hard on any
group of foreign newcomers, legal
That explains why we have store
signs and packaging in both Eng-
lish and Spanish;
A while back, an acquaintance
vowed to avoid purchasing any
product with bi-lingual packaging,
or support any retailer falling prey
to the "sensitive" side of foreign
When the Greeks, Italians, Ger-
mans, Japanese and Chinese im-
migrated to America, did we feel
the need to package cereal in their
language? In most cases, immi-
grants spoke native languages in
their homes and neighborhoods,
but realized if they wanted to make
it in American they had to speak,
The US became strong econonmi-
cally and politically because it wel-
comed others to its shores, and
even those who met prejudice stuck
it out and made it.
A big reason was because they
came in legally. Anyone see a les-
son in that?
With the exception of ho\\ we're e
going to put the cap back on the
toothpaste tube and send illegals

It just takes a government with
the guts to say, "No more."
In the meantime, I don't think
I'm going to go along with the boy-
cott of products packaged in Eng-
lish and Spanish, or avoid doing
business with firms whose auto-

Steven Keith, 22, of Macclenny is
being sought for possession of
crack cocaine he allegedly at-
.tempted to stash in a pipe while
being chased on foot by a county
deputy the afternoon of May 27.
Deputy John Hardin said the
suspect started running after spot-

St. in the west city. The officer
said he quit the chase after falling
while climbing a fence, but saw
Mr. Keith stuff a small bag into the
pipe at the rear of a residence off

Deputy Hardin identified the
suspect after talking to neighbors
and looking at a mug shot. The
criminal complaint charges him
with felony possession.
Toni Gainey, 19, of Glen St.
Mary was booked on a similar
charge the evening of May 26 after
her 2004 Chevrolet was stopped
by Sgt. Thomas Dyal on Tony
Givens Road in north Sanderson.
A search of her vehicle turned
up a vial of 26 prescription pills of
varying description, pills she told
police she obtained from friends.
Sgt. Dyal said he stopped Ms.
Gainey in the neighborhood known
for drug activity because she was
following too closely behind the
patrol car of another deputy.
Two occupants of a vehicle that
failed to stop at the intersection of
Lowder and Griffin Ct. the eve-
ning of May 26 ended up charged
with several offenses.
Deputy John Hardin said he"

paraphernalia in the vehicle driven
by Lora Addison, 38, no address

of Macclenny was charged with
having four open bottles of whis-
key in the vehicle.

Cynthia Davis reported the theft

The upper grades have solid
math scores at or near 60 percent
but their reading percentages
drop significantly each year from
eighth through tenth grades.
Ms. Voorhees, however, pointed
out 'that other FCAT scores show
Bak)er County students improving

She was referring to the Mean
Developmental Scale Score
(DSS), which tracks students'
progress from grade to grade.
The "grade level" scores com-
pare separate groups of students -
this year's fourth graders aren't
reading as well as last year's.
"Just looking at one set of num-
bers doesn't give you the whole
picture," Ms. Voorhees said.
DSS scores show improvement
in reading and math in all grades
The DSS is intended to deter-
mine whether individuals are pro-
gressing as they should be as they,
rise through the grades.
The past year's eighth graders
showed significant progress in
reading, while fifth and seventh
graders made big~gains in math.

January, 8, 1938 -May 2,1997
Another year has come and
gone and the emptiness in my
heart is still as deep as it was the
first year you were called away to
your Heavenly home. They say it
gets easier in time, but, I guess
that time has not come for me as I
still miss you..very much today as
I have everyday for the last nine
years. Until we are reunited in
Heaven, I will still love you and
miss you daily.

Richard wants no petty-coats in racing
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Sports Commentary
Danica Patrick may have fin-
ished a disappointing eighth in the
Indy 500 Sunday. but the real loser
in auto racing this weekend was
Richard Petty. ...
He was widely quoted as sao ing.
"I just don't think it's a sport -for
women. And so far, it's pro\ ed out.
It's really not."
Coincidentally, exactly 30 years
ago, he expressed the same senti-
ment when Janet Guthrie became
the only woman to race in the Co'ca
Cola 600. She also was the first
w oman to drive in the Daytona 500
and Indy 500.
"She's no lady," King Dick said.,
"If she was, she'd be at home.
There's a lot of differences in being,
a laUd and being a woman."
On the other hand, there's not a
lot of difference in being a seven-
time Winston Cup winner and an
ignoramus w ith a big, goofy hat.
Compare Petti's opinion to that
of NASCAR uber-legend Junior
"I thought of her as a race driv-
er. I didn't think of her as a woman
or a man. .-
Will there e\ er be a time where
that is the norm?
Who know s, but it certainly
Nearly every tine golfer
Michelle Wie gets a sponsor's
exemption to compete in a men's
tournament, there's, at least one
dork in ugly pants who complains.
that she doesn't belong.
Usually, the objection concerns
the poor fellow out there every'
week trying to make a living, but
can't get in the tournament because
Wie swoops in and takes a slot that
would have been his.
As if any tournament would suf-
fer because the 108th ranked male
player isn't on the course while one
of the most intriguing golfers in the'
world is. He ,she's not just a
female, but she', only 16, ears old!
Who wouldn't't want to watch, her
compete against grown men?,
(Other than the grown men she

complain about a \'oman pla. ing
It's not a coincidence that the
whining comes from auto racing
and golf, %those participants are
always the usual suspects in the
."Ari they really athletes?" discus-
sions at bars.
Feeling a little inadequate,
In mni opinion, it doesn't require
classic athletic ability to drive.'a car.
or drive a golf ball.
The most basic human athletic
endeavor is running. Throwing is
right behind, then catching. Neither
golf nor racing has any of those
unless you count a driver running
out on the track and throwing his
helmet at the guy who spun him
out, then catching hell from
That's not to say it doesn't take
serious skills to do both. It also
doesn't mean that a golfer can't be .
a great athlete, it's just not neces-
sary to the sport.
But walking around Augusta or
driving around Talladega for a few ,
hours doesn't exact tax the car-
dio-vascular system. Try running
through the five boroughs in the
New York City Marathon.
Of course, if you're John Daly,
lugging that beer gut around the
'course while sucking down ciga-
rettes, you're probably working up
a pretty good sweat.
And I'm sorr\ NASCAR fans,
but the fact ihat some drivers feel it
necessary to urinate in their fire
suits doesn't mean they re pushing
themselves beyond their physical
limits. It probably means the\ for-
got to go before lea\ ing their RV.

McReynolds were announcing
Sunday's Coca Cola 600. With-
about 100 miles to go DW started
talking dramatically about how dif-
ficult the race is because it's longer
than any other on the NASCAR
"This is when all that nutrition,
all that training pays off," the for-
mer Cup champion said.
McReynolds, a former crew
chief, jumped in with, "Can you
still focus? -Can you get up on that
One other thing he said, howev-

OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD .............
If you .\watched any of the
Southeast Conference champi-
onship game, you got to see
Macclenny nativeTyler Rhoden
pitch for the Vanderbilt
Rhoden is the son of Jamie and
Rhoden led the surprising
CommoJores.--inio the SEC cham-
pionshipN game against i the
Mississippi State Bulldogs, a
perennial NCAA College world d
Series team. Rhoden pitched four
innings and ga\ e up four runs on.
six hits in the 9-3 loss.
It was amazing to see the
Macclenny ace on the mound.
That the Commodores would
entrust the biggest game of the sea-
son to a sophomore is a testament

"He pitches well in tough situa-
tions," Corbin said.
There aren't many tougher than

Prior to joining the

Bolles and was an all First-Coast,

ning back who tested positive for

only does he love his marijuana,
but if you threaten to keep him
from smoking it, he'll just walk off
the team and disappear. He quit in

second, or third or fourth chance
bui he couldn't keep away from the
At some point, the Dolphins and
the NFL just need to cut this gu\
loose. If he wants to stay up north
of the border, let him. Sure he can
run, but what kind of effect does
having a guy like Williams in the
locker room have on the team.
Football is a team sport about
discipline and hard work and stick-

as good. It doesn't seem that those,
qualities have made it through
Williams' dreadlocks. He's all
about Ricky Williams.

Market forecast show downturn

Real Estate writer
Sometimes I get the feel-
ing that my life would be so

on the back of the TV din-
ners and I'm thankful for lit-
eracy again. Plus, this col-
umn's bad enough as it is
without it being a conglomer-
ation of nonsensical letters
and punctuation marks hap-
hazardly arranged at random
which only make sense to
At any rate, the point I'm
getting at is that, against my
better judgment, I've been
reading a lot of real estate
speculation reports again
and the news may spell trou-
ble in the coming years.
Let's start out with a cou-
ple of questions my recent
reading has brought up:
I Is the lending industry
responsible for a coming fall
of home values across the
1 Are weak real estate in-
vestors who are still reeling
from the 2005 boom about

1 Last but not least, why
aren't the subdivisions
around Baker County filling
According to an MBA
(Mortgage Bankers Associa-
tion) national delinquency
survey conducted in March,
2006, the number of foreclo-
sure proceedings in the U.S.
has been steadily increasing
over the past three years.
There are several factors be-
ing blamed for the increas-
es, ranging from rising ener-
gy costs to the rising inter-
est rates on home loans.
But there may be another
source of this evil which is
going somewhat overlooked.
First, let me say that fore-
closures are absolutely horri-
ble. Some investors may
love them because
it leads to opportu-
nities to purchase
homes at reduced
prices, but the truth
is that every time a
home goes into fore-
dreams have just
along with their
credit. It's some-
thing that will follow
and affect that fami-'
ly for years to come.
Contrary to popu-
lar belief. banks and
lenders hate the
foreclosures just as
much as anyone
else. For them, it
means huge profit
losses in the way of
not getting the inter-
est payments they
were hoping to col-
lect, as well as the
possibility of por-
tions of the principle
amount of the loan
never being fully
It is for this last"
reason that it may
surprise some read-
ers to learn that one t
of the major causes
for the increase in
ings is the maturing of a
number of creative financing,
methods that were offered
by lenders in the recent
In 2004, an unusual
amount of adjustable rate
mortgages (ARM programs)
and interest-only loans were
issued to buyers in the U.S.
housing market. These lower
payments were lovely during
the first year or so, but as
the interest rates rise along
with the LIBOR (London Inter
Bank Offered Rate) index
and balloon payments be-
come due forcing refinanc-
ing, these payments aren't
so low anymore. People who
bought homes under these
programs anticipating their
own income to rise during
those years to make up the
difference are finding that it
just didn't happen that way.
Whether the homes actu-
ally come to full foreclosure
and are sold at auction or
simply entice the owners to
The real estate market could falter in the next few years.
sell quickly with a real estate
agent for a lower price really
makes very little difference
when it comes to the affect
it has on the market.
With an influx of these
homes selling low, it drags
down the appraisal figures
for the homes selling in the
same neighborhoods., Add
that to the fact that the, ris-
ing rates make less money
available to the average buy-
er and that's how prices go
Don't .worry too much
about the foreclosure thing
here though. Right now,
there are a whopping three
bank-owned properties on
the Baker County market
and our county has support-
ed an annual average of only
about 70 letters of lis pen-
dens (notice of impending
foreclosure) issued over the
last several years. Taking in-
to account differences in
population, that's still noth-
ing compared to Duval and
Clay counties, whose actual
foreclosure numbers range
in the thousands. .
Regarding the investor im-
pact on land developments,
there are two prices that
need to be considered pre-
construction and post-con-
struction. A simple rule of
thumb is that preconstruc-
tion prices are almost al-
ways lower than post-con-
struction. That's why so
many investors take advan-
tage of new developments.
They buy the properties
cheaply, wait for the subdivi-
sion to fill up and become
established, then resell the
home when supply has di-
minished and demand has
However, so many in-
vestors did this in the 2005
boom that many speculators
today are wondering if those
same investors may still be
too tied in with their previous
properties to repeat this
practice in the coming years,
thanks to the slower housing
Without the demand for
new construction being
somewhat inflated by in-
vestors, it seems obvious
that these homes and con-
dos being built everywhere
will have to sell at a slightly
lower price than if the com-

petition for them was higher.
Some developers are
even trying to enforce
"homestead- only"' guide-
lines in order to prevent in-
vestors from purchasing in
the early phases of con-
struction. The rationale for
this is that it's an attempt
to keep all th6se "For Rent"
signs out of their pretty new
subdivisions while they're
trying to get buyers to come
in and pay full price.
However, it-borders on
counterproductive to prevent
the sale of these homes if
the practice ultimately puts
a halt on construction until
a certain number of intend-
ed residents commission to
have the homes built in the
Basically, when some-
thing isn't selling, the price
goes down until it does.
Which scares me into ask-
ing the question: Why do so'
many of the developments
here in Baker County seem
to be coming along so slow-
Maybe I've just been
spoiled by the develop-
ments I'm more accus-
tomed to in Jacksonville,
where one day I drive by and
see a sign that some new
development is coming and

then a few months later I go
back by and there's an en-
tire neighborhood where, the
woods used to be. Just the
same, I get the feeling that
some of these newer subdi-
visions aren't selling so
I could be wrong about
that, no doubt. After all,
these same home plans are
selling for $30,000-$40,-

so they're certainly attrac-
tive to new people in this
It's just that if these devel-
