key roles in the arrest of three
young suspects in the daylight

Macclenny on September 11.
It marked the second robbery

from the Quick N Handy on

In the latest incident, two of
the suspects, ages 17 and 16, ad-

they were questioned later that

year-old Gregory Robins, turned

During the July 14 meeting,
abandoned vehicles belonging

The original "back roads" reviews
by David Filipov appeared in the
Globe's Sunday edition on July 30, and
were picked up by The lteek magazine
in its September 8 edition.
Right there, in one of the country 's
most informative and interesting news
magazines, was Everybody's (actual
name Everybody's Lunch), a favorite
hangout in the Baldwin area for 65
years and one that regularly attracts i
Baker County diners anxious to grab a
taste of "down home" cooking in just
the right atmosphere.
"It's called Everybody's Lunch,
but everybody really comes here for
breakfast," read Mr. Filipov's review.
"It's the kind of place where 'every-
one stands up to greet the people who
come in, whether they know one an-
other or not.' A jukebox plays country

since the mid-1970s. She's the grand-

"One of our customers is from up near
Boston and apparently gets the newspaper.
She brought us a copy."
Mr. Filipov showed up at Everybody's
one Saturday morning earlier this summer
and chatted with James Bennett, Ms. Bar-
ber's father and the son of the founders.

places to eat, non-franchise operations that

something. As if the\ were pe-

Hmm. Am I mistaken. or,
didn't they go 12-5 last season?
Didn't they have one of the best
records in the league and maybe
the best defense in the NFL?

the Jaguars wasn't it?

I have to admit my first
thought-after a student came
into my geometry class and

I tend to think like that some-

it pains me when anything gives
our military a black eye.
Little did I know at the time
what an impact that day would
have on my life.

through the two towers with a mixture of stunned
awe and pure. utter, disbelief.
What has been foremost in the minds of this
country's citizens since that day is the brutal and
senseless sacrifice of innocent human life for what
most of us view as a fanatical and distorted cause'
that is hard by our 'western and democratic stan-
'dards to comprehend.
The bitter reality that our borders are not invin-
cible and that our national security can indeed be
breached shook American citizens to their collec-
The devastating and vicious destruction of a
world center of commerce that was an internation-
ally recognized icon of architecture and engineer-
ing resonates with me in particular.
Here are a few facts about the World Trade Cen-
ter that most people probably didn't know:
It was designed by an American citizen of Jap-
anese descent, Minoru Yamasaki, whose personal
philosophy was thus: "The purpose of architecture
is to create an atmosphere in which man can live,
work and enjoy."
There actually were seven buildings, not just
the two towers that dominated the Manhattan sky-
line, and the, complex was so large it had its own
* Because of innovations in engineering, the
twin towers were the first super-tall buildings to
be constructed without masonry.
The twin towers were not the same height,
although int photographs they appeared so. One
tower was taller by four feet.
On any given workday, 50,000 people were
at work in the center and another 200,000 passed
through the complex.
The excavated soil from the building's six-sto-
ry basement was used to create 23 acres of landfill
in the Hudson River, which eventually became the
location of Battery Park Community in southwest
Several weeks after the 9/11
attack, I read in a fax received at the Columbia
Museum of Art, a touching account of the discov-
ery of a sculpture that miraculously survived the
Doublecheck, by Seward Johnson, Jr., a life-
sized, bronze depiction of a businessman check-
ing ,his opened briefcase was unearthed, virtually
undamaged, from the twisted mountains of rubble
at Ground Zero.
The sculpture, which originally sat on a park
bench in the Trade Center Plaza, became a beloved
local symbol of survival and resurrection in the
days following its phoenix-like extraction from
the ashes. Doublecheck remained at Ground Zero
for a time after it was unearthed.
Although the workers rarely sa"' who left them,
handwritten notes expressing personal sentiments
about the tragedy, cups of coffee and even sand-
wiches began to appear in the contents of the brief-
Before the tragedy, on days when the weather
was nice. hundreds of people, most of them busi-
nessmen and women and countless other employ-
ees of the Center, could be found eating lunch and
drinking coffee in the plaza.
It was as if people were trying in this small way
to restore some semblance of normality and bal-
ance a world gone suddenly mad.
At the sight of the. former World Trade Center,
construction has begun on the new Freedom Tower,
,a stunning building whose design will feature a se-
ries of isosceles triangles and a cro" ning spire that
will eimit a beam of light into space. The tower's
height is,even symbolic, 1,776 feet, representing
the year the United States won its independence.
Reclamation of the sight of the former World
Trade Center will be a bittersweet victory. No
building, no matter how beautiful or nobly erect-
ed, can bring back the people who perished that
woeful day. Yet, people cannot live their lives in
fear of what might happen and they go forward in
hope anyway, not knowing what tomorrow might

Visiting Eastside High Rams hand Wildcats
their first loss ofJeason,
BY MICHAEL RINKER
In the wake of the Wildcats' 41-22'
loss to Eastside last week, coach Bobby
Johns headed out to the practice field
Monday afternoon with an unfamiliar
It was the first time in three years he
had to conduct practice after a loss.
Johns returned to Baker County this
year after leading Blountstown High to
24 straight regular season wins, then
won his first two'as Cats'coach.
Each of the three previous years ended
with losses in the playoffs including
the state championship game in 2004
- %% which means there were no more prac-
tices those seasons.
"It's the first time in three years I had
to get up and go to work the next day,"
he said, referring to film sessions on
Asked how it felt, he laughed and
said, "Not very good."
Nonetheless, the intense Johns seemed
at ease on the field prior to practice
"If I get too bent out of shape and
flustered, the kids will too," he said. "I
told them to put the game in the past and
It's probably best that his players do
Despite entering the game 2-0 and
playing at home, they came out flat.
Their lack pf intensitN \\ as palpable and
'seemed to spread (o the crowd. %which
the previous week had.been energized
"There was a spiraling effect ... we
were flat, the fans were flat, and every-
one got flatter," Johns said Tuesday
morning. "If we had taken that first drive
down the field to score, we may have got
some excitement going."
But unlike the previous week at
home against Bradford County, the Cats
offense stalled, thanks to key mistakes,
including a dropped pass.
Those mistakes continued through
most of the game, and the -two most
obvious led to defensive touchdowns by
The first one was when quarterback
Carlos Holton and running back Lucious
Lee were unable to connect on a swing
pass in the right flat. As it turned out,
however, it was ruled a lateral, so when
the ball fell to the ground a Rams player
scooped it up and ran it in.
The second key mistake killed a
fourth-quarter rally by the Cats and cost
them any chance at the win.
After recovering their second con-
secutive onsides kick, Baker seemed
poised to make a game of it with about
four minutes left.
The first onsides kick had led to a
touchdown 'that drew the Cats to within
34-22. If they could do it again, they'd
be one touchdown away from the lead.
After a good run was negated by a
penalty, Holton tried a shovel pass that
bounced off Lee's shoulder pads into the
hands of a Rams' defender, who returned
it for the game-elinching touchdown.
"It would have been. tough to come
back, but at least our kids played hard at
the end. I wish they would have played
that way at the beginning."
In addition to those crucial errors, the
Cats made a lot of mistakes in the back-
field, including missed blocks and not
carrying out fakes, Johns said.
He also lamented dropped passes and
"atrocious" blocking by the offensive
"We weren't physical. We didn't get
after people. We're getting softer instead

The big tuning point this past week came in the second half when it looked as if we were going
to mount a comeback. We had an opportunity to score and had a matchup on the linebacker that we
thought we could win.
With us running the Veer as much as we do, we felt as if the Veer pass was a good call for us to
isolate the linebacker. The routes we were supposed to run were not executed and we ended up with a
lateral pass that we did not recover. Eastside picked it upand ran it back for the touchdown that helped
put the game back into their hands.
The play is designed to be a play-action off the Veer running play and to freeze the linebacker
so we can hit the hot route behind him. It must be blocked and faked like the Veer run and the
quarterback must make a quick read on the linebacker to choose his target. We did not execute
the play properly and it resulted in a fumble.

As the number of homes for sale
on the market increases compared
to the number of potential buyers,,
sellers will need to begin to explore
more options that will help their
home rise above the competition.
More homes on the market means
longer marketing periods before-
the home actually sells. There are
ways to make a
home stand out
in the hearts and
minds of buyers.
just one or two of
the techniques is

yalue. Sellers need to understand
that although prices are not drop-

the rate that property o\ ners had

average appreciation rate in Florida,
has recently sunk to a mere 4.68%
annually. That is a drop of nearly
five percent over this time last year.
Keep in mind that this still repre-
sents a growth in home values, not
a decline. It just means that sellers
can't really expect to be able to add
that 1-3% 'let's see" money on top
of the market value for their price

Aside from the price being right,

sellers aren't really all that aware
of what a home \\arrant\ does for
themselves and the buyers. Most
home warranties take effect on the
day that the home is purchased and
coverage lasts for a full year after
that. If any appliances, such as air
conditioning units or dishwashers,_
etc, break down during'that time,

but there was just nothing all that
appealing about it from the outside.
In fact, some of the agents I contact-
ed after their scheduled show ings
on the property to see how it went
had mentioned that the buyers never
even made it inside the home. They
took one look at the outside and
decided they didn't need to see any-
more. Of the bu)eirs who did go in,
the feedback was great. After all, the
home had been completely remod-.
There are two lessons to be
learned from this story: 1) Never
attractive outside can have a signifi-
cant effect on the price at which a
home sells, not to mention how\ long
it takes to find that perfect buN er.
3. Gi\e the interior walls a nice
fresh coat of paint. Sellers generallyN
dread the idea of having to move
all the furniture and lay down miles
of painters tape just have their last
: memories of their home be over-
shado\ed with a strong paint smell.
However. repainting goes a long
way toward giving a home a newer,
less lived-in feel. Tri to keep in
mind that a home that feels less like
someone else's home \\ ill more eas-
ily feel like it could be the buyer's
next home \\hen they're trying to
picture themselves there.
Keep the colors neutral and bright
to a'oid offending someone's taste
and to make the rooms feel larger.
4. Consider putting in new car-
pet. Filthy and heavily stained car-
,pet is a sure-fire way to make a
home look like a dump in the eyes
of the buyers from the second they'
walk in the door. Sometimes a good
thorough cleaning will take care of
the problem. Sometimes it won't.
Buyers will often discount a home
in new carpet right after they. just
moved it in %vill certainly not sound
Very appealing to potential buyers.
5. Consideradvertising that you're
offering allowances. If you're not in,
the mood or don't have the time or
money to paint or put in new carpet,
but you know that the home really
does need it, there is another option
that is almost just as good. You
might offer a carpet allowance to be
paid back to the buyers at the clos-
ing table from sour proceeds. The
amount to offer is usually) based on
the square footage that is carpeted in
the home. It is pretty common lateL
ly that people will offer or request
around $2500 for carpet.
Sellers also offer redecorating
allow ances from time to time. These
are more or less a catch-all that is
offered in the case of a home that
hasn't been updated in years and has
fallen behind what is normnnal conim-
pared to other homes on the mar-
Redecorating allowances can
actually be pretty high. but their
worth considering if everyone \\ho
comes to see the home complains of
how dated it looks. Basically. some-
times it costs money to make money
in the sale of a home.
'6. Offer to pay closing costs.
If you're truly motivated to sell a
home and don't \ant to wait your
turn in line behind the competition
in your neighborhood. you night be
willing to pay some or all of a buy-
er's closing costs. It is not necessary
in the current market to expect to
have to pa\ these costs. That's w-h\
doing so really makes people want
your house above the others. The
less money it takes for the buyers to
get moved in, the more concessions
they will be killing g to make to steer
them into N our home; e\en if it isn't
exactly what. they're, looking for.
Even if you're only offer one or two
thousand dollars toward the buyers'
closing. now-it seems like a deal.
If paying a certain percentage
of the price or a flat dollar amount

4 Steps to a
Quality Interior Paint Job
| jthe surface
Courtesy of The ROhbi n.rrd H.u,. F'Wil Qualio. Institute
(MS) It's not surprising
that interior painting is the
most popular do-it-yourself
You can transform an entire
room in a short period of
time, with minimal effort
and little expense. To help
you succeed in your next
interior painting endeavor,
the experts at the Rohm and
Haas Paint Quality Institute
suggest that you follow
these four basic steps:
1. Prepare the surface
properly. Good .paint
largely on good paint
adhesion. Paint adheres best
to surfaces that are clean
Remove dust, dirt and
grime from all surfaces
using a detergent-and-water
solution. Rinse, then allow
to dry. Next, fill in small
holes and cracks with either
filling compound or caulk.,
Allow to dry and make
a second application if
necessary. Then prime any
repaired areas or unpainted
surfaces with a quality
interior latex primer.. If
there are any water stains'
or other discolorations, use
a stain-blocking primer. To
ensure the most uniform
consider priming the entire
area to be painted.
2. Use the right tools and
brushes. Quality brushes
and rollers apply paint
more smoothly and evenly.
a heavy, smooth coat
delivers maximum hiding
and durability, which helps
the paint film stand up to
cleaning and scrubbing.
The best brushes are well
balanced, hold a lot of paint
and distribute it evenly.
Look for tightly. packed
bristles, and test them for
flexibility by fanning them
out. Tug lightly on the
bristles if more than a
couple come out, consider
Sturdy, top-quality rollers
apply paint heavier and
more evenly than economy
When applying water-
based coatings, use
only synthetic (nylon or
polyester) bristle brushes

and roller covers. Alkyd
and oil-based paints can be
applied with either natural-
material or synthetic
3. Choose the right gloss
level. From an aesthetic
standpoint, decide what
sheen level will look best
on the surface. Practically,
however, also consider how
the paint will be expected to.
perform: Ahigher gloss level
will highlight imperfections
in the wall, but it also offers
easier cleanup of any dirt or
stains that get on the paint.
4. Use top quality paint.
Compared to ordinary
interior paints, top quality
products provide superior
adhesion and better stain
resistance, apply more
smoothly and generally look
better longer. Top quality
paints also'won't spatter or
show brush or roller marks
during application. These
paints are also tougher and
more durable than ordinary
grades; resist yellowing
and have superior stain

toward closing costs is some-
'thing you're willing to do,
. advertise that on your flyers
and in ads to let buyers know
7. Be willing to Co-Op
with agents. If you are trying
to sell by owner to keep from
having to pay a commission,
you may be finding that it's
not going as well as you
thought it would. In a normal
market like the current one,
buyers spend less and less
time out there actually look-
ing for homes for sale. That's
because they're not all that
hard to find when there's so
many available. Unless the
proper advertising is being
used, these buyers may not
ever find out that your house
is on the market.
Consider a Co-Op, or
cooperating, with real estate
agents to sell your home.
In this deal, the agents will
show your home to their buy-
ers if you agree to pay them
a certain percentage, usu-
ally half of what they would
charge for a full listing in
which they do all the market-
ing for you. Sure, it will cost
some of your net profit, but
how does that amount com-'
pare with the money you're
paying in mortgage pay-
ments (which are probably
mostly interest and won't be
recouped in the sale) while
waiting months for someone
to buy the home?
You don't have to wait for
agents to offer this Co-Op
to you. You can take the ini-
tiative and call them to tell
them about your willingness
to participate. It might not
help, but it certainly won't
hurt and it will probably
cause your home to sell a
whole lot faster. Also, you'd
be amazed at all the freebie
services you can squeeze out
of agents while you're sell-
ing on your own if they think
you might someday list with
them. Don't tell anyone I said
