What's better than hotdogs,
chips and drinks?
Books, of course!
Nearly 100 children and par-
ents enjoyed books and lunch
when they attended the Reading
in the Park program held Sept. 16
at Glen St Mary's Celebration
Sponsored by the PreK/
Kindergarten Center, the two-
hour program was held to pro-
mote a love of reading animong
Baker County children.
"We wanted to give children
a chance to see their teachers
outside of a school setting and to
help them view reading as a fun
experience, not just something
they do in the classroom." said
PreK Center principal Sherrie,

children by volunteering to read

Parents sat on benches and on
blankets %\ith children gathered
around listening to stories.

Both the county and the
Eighth Circuit state attorney's
office were awarded Communi-
ty Issue Budget Request grants
At a workshop Monday,
county commissioners agreed
to form a committee to develop
"cohesive plan" after it became
apparent they weren't on board
with a request to spend $55,000
on a key card access system.
County Judge Joey Williams
said the system is "not anything
novel... but, allows flexibility
in programming for the public
defender state attorney, clerk of
court, judges and guardian ad li-
tem... it controls access with all
these differing needs."
Led by chairman Alex Rob-
inson, the commission seemed
skeptical of the need for the con-
trolled access system, especially
with deputies already in place
County manager Joe Cone,
also said the figure seems high.
Commissioner Gordon Crews
asked court officials to prioritize
the need for the system.
"It's not a 9-1-1 prior-.
ity," Judge Williams replied. "If

courthouse in..order to-bring the

Space at the courthouse is at
a premium, due in large part to
continued expansion by the state
"'E\ er inch is occupied,"
said Clerk Al Fraser.
There also. was talk about
setting up video conferencing
technology linking the court-
house and the jail so that judges
can conduct first appearances
remotely. The technology also
would connect different coun-
ties within the judicial circuit.
Judge Williams said court of-
ficials put together their wish list
"preliminaril.." and suggested
all parties meet to "sketch out a
long-term plan for this mone\."
He said they would like to
"hear from the county about
what is on your mind."
Mr. Robinson suggested that
representatives from the judge,
the state attorney's office, the
clerk, and possible\ others, meet
with Mr. Cone, who ill coordi-
nate the committee.
In other action at the work-
shop, commissioners considered
funding requests from three so-
cial services agencies Baker
County Community Mental
Health Services ($126,694),
Baker County Counseling Ser-

The money .would have to
come from the county's con-,
tingency fund which is about
$350,000 because the budget
has already been advertised and
can't be amended at this point.

people. I assured them I would
not write anything that would let
the enemy know we're here. In

The base stretches for miles and
has constant helicopter and con-

also look it up on the Internet
and find out almost anything
you want to know.
My new home, Camp Victory,
is on the outskirts of Baghdad,
surrounded by some of the
Sadr City-in Iraq. It's not
uncommon to hear gunfire com-
ing from just beyond our bound-
aries and we get rocked fairly
regularly by sizeable explo-
sions as our military operations
continue to clear bad guys out
of those rough neighborhoods.
Another interesting item about
the base is its proximity to
another infamous Iraqi' land-
mark, Abu Ghraib.
Other than that, it's really
pretty comfortable here. Even

Circulation is Everything
If circulation was merely the act ofmailing a publication to everyone
free of charge whether they want it or not that would be easy.
It's a bit more difficult to produce a quality publication and put it out there for sale.
It has to be professionally prepared with information your readers want and need
- information they are willing to pay for week after week. That way your readers make
It takes a professional staff dedicated to putting out that publication each week, know-
ing readers deserve to get something for their money. No other publication in Baker
County approaches our paid circulation numbers.
We do it differently. We earn your support.

No child left inside
Studies suggest the majority
of American children spend most
of their time indoors, watch-
ing television and playing video
As children become more
sedentary, there is the possibility
they will begin suffering from
health and social problems that
were not a concern a generation
ago. Many of us can remember a
time when exploring roaming a
nearby forest or searching for the
best fishing hole. Today, a child
roaming their world means surf-
ing the internet. Only now as a
society are we discovering how
this loss of natural play is chang-
ing America's children and our
own concept of society.
According to child'advocacy
expert Richard Louv, the lack of
nature in children's lives, what
he calls "nature-deficit disorder,"
can be directly linked to many of
the ailments that children suffer
today. With the rise of childhood
obesity. attention deficit disorder,
depression, and other maladies,
American children are growing
up less healthy then their parents
did a generation ago.
This is even occurring while
more children than ever are par-
ticipating in organized sports.
However, Louv believes that
nature can be a potent therapy
for these illnesses. In his new
book "Last Child in the Woods:
Saving Our Children, from Na-.
ture-deficit Disorder," Louv uses
scientific research to explain
how direct exposure to nature is
essential for children to develop
into physically. emotionally, and
spiritually healthy adults.
Richard Louv is not the only
one speaking out about this prob-
lem. The concern about children
losing their connection to nature
is so great that a national con-
ference on the subject was held
recently at the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service's National Con-
servation Training Center.

Kempthorne joined more than

This is a real problem, and so-
lutions are now being discussed
around the country. The slogan
"No Child Left Inside" is often
used to 'promote the idea of get-,
ting children outdoors.
Luckily, there is an easy.way
to ensure your child does not
suffer from "Nature-deficit Dis-
order." Get your child outside.

So use your explorations of
the Okefenokee and other natu-

and yourself, to reconnect to na-
ture for health and happiness. It
will help reduce stress, improve
your health, and forge a stronger

S but as we all know, close doesn't count in football.
On the last play of regulation, Chaz Johns catches a pass
on the Vikings' five-yard line, but can't score. A couple of
plays before, Cats' receiver Jamar Farmer caught a long
pass at the ten. He had the Raines secondary beat by
more than five yards but had wait on the pass.

"That's a pretty good assessment of what happened," coach Bobby
Johns said Tuesday morning.
The Cats lost three fumbles, all of which led to Vikings' touch-
downs, including the most important. hicli came with about three
minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Up 22-14 with possession around the Raines 35-yard line, and
needing just a couple of first dow ns to run out the clock and take
home a well earned victory, the Cats put the ball on the ground and
watchedas Vikings'defensive back Anthony Curry scooped it up and
took it to the house. The two-point conversion tied the game.
In the third quarter, the Cats had the lead, momentum and field
position, and seemed poised to take control of the game when the\
turned the ball over on the Raines 25-yard line.
The first play affer the fumble. Vikings scatback Ra\ Dukes reeled

Johns said that while watching film he counted 11 missed tackles
on the play. He also saw Dukes clearly\ step out of bounds once, and
probably another time. an obsern ation echoed b\ radio broadcasters.
"Other than that run, we did a good job on him." the coach said.
The diminutive Dukes carried the ball ten times for 117 yards. Last
season at Memorial Stadium, he tore through the Cats' defense for
173 yards on 14 carries.
The Vikings first touchdown followed a turnover in the second
quarter, but Johns said the key play \as \ lien Baker defenders were

The 32/33 Veer has been one of the best plays in my offense over the past several years. It's an
option play that allows us to "read" defensive players and make decisions on who will carry the football
based on what the defense does.
At a crucial point in the third quarter, quarterback Carlos Holton made a read to keep the ball, then
went 60 yards for a score.
The play works by reading the first defensive player head up to outside the offensive tackle. The
quarterback will place the ball in the belly of the fullback, and if the defensive player squeezes down to
tackle the fullback, the QB will pull the ball back. If the defender doesn't go for the fullback, the QB will
give him the ball. If the quarterback keeps the ball himself, he will either run down the field as Carlos
did or pitch it to the tailback if a secondary defender comes to tackle him.
It's a great play if you have an athletic quarterback, but also works if you have a great "decision
maker" at quarterback. Look for us to run this play many times during the season.

Despite the mistakes, the Cats
were in position to win the game
at the end of regulation.
After Raines tied it at 22 on
the fumble return, the offense-
got the ball back with about two
minutes left. A few plays later,
with time dwindling, Jamar
Farmer had the Vikings' second-
ary beat by more than five yards
but had to stop and wait for the
pass at the ten-yard line, where
they caught up to him.
After Raines stuffed a run,
the Cats got off one more play,
a pass from Holton to Johns at
the five, but Dukes got to him
before he could get turned and
headed for the end zone.
The Vikings got the ball first
in overtime and scored easily.
They faked a kick for the extra-
point and ran it in for two.
Holton hit Johns with a five-
yard touchdown pass, but was
pressured on the conversion at-
tempt and was unable connect
with a receiver. There appeared
to be contact in the end zone, but
not enough to draw a flag.

Ladies play tournament and
three dual matches
It was a mixed bag for the Lady Wildcat volleyball team last
They came up against some tough competition, including many of
the state's top-ranked teams. They played hard and competitively.
The highlight of the week was a second victory over Bradford
County. Earlier in the season they defeated Bradford on the road,
and this time around the Tornadoes gave them all they could handle
before BCHS came back and beat them in five games. "This was an
emotional game for us, knowing that this was our rival," said Coach
Chris Armoreda. "You never want to lose a game to your rival on
your home court. Our play was very inconsistent and our execution
was lack-luster and this put us in a hole 2 games to 1 after dropping
games two and three."
Bradford made some mental errors and the home crowd provided
a lot of noise that fired up the players. Baker came back and began to
dominate play in games four and five.
Statistical leaders for the game were Tiffany Norman and Brittany
Gray with 4 kills each. Cassie Kennedy had 8 assists. Kristin Mathis
and Kennedy had 2 aces each and Norman, MI ary Dugger and Tasha
Battles collected a pair of blocks each.,
'The Lady Cats started the week with a three-game loss to fifth-
ranked Alachua Santa Fe. The Lady Cats rose to the level of play
and gave the Raiders a lot of trouble before falling 25-15, 25-23 and
Armoreda was pleased despite the loss.
'There were a lot of positives that came from this 2anme."
Tiffany Norman led the \wa\. \ ith 5 kills. Mind\ Roberts had 3 as-
sists and Mar) Dugger, Tasha Battles and Brittany Gray had 3 blocks
This past weekend, the Lady Wildcats participated in the First An-
nual Gator Town Volleyball Tournament in Gainesville at PK Yonge
and Bucholz High.
The tournament brought the cream of the state's volleyball players
to Gainesville. Thirteen of the 16 teams ranking in the Top 6 in the
State through 2A.- 6A were in attendance.
"This was a great learning experience for the team." said Armore-
da. "We were able to play against and watch some of the best teams
in Florida. We played 5 games and out of the 11 matches in total from
the 5 games, we w\ ere able to win one match against a tough team
from Sarasota. We tookthis team to three games. I wanted the girls to
see what it took to be a tdp notch caliber volleyball team. It was an eye
opener for them to see girls their age playing at near college level."
Statistical leaders for the Wildcats \ere Gray with 17 kills, Nor-
man w ith 15 kills. Roberts and Norman with 6 aces, Kennedy with 27
assists, Norman. Ashley Holton, Battles and Gray had 4 blocks each.

he got from some of his younger players.
"Trevor shooting a 45 was big for us as far as a solid team score

Smart repairs for sellers
By Jared Wilkerson
Real Estate Writer
When planning to sell a home in
the current market, sellers should
take an objective look around
<_ the property for
that need to be
made in order to
make the home
more appealing to
buyers. Take cau-
Stion, though. The
types of repairs

they're done \aill
detennrmine whether or not you get
your money back when the home
Some repairs and upgrades are
north h while. For instance, if all of
the other homes in the neighbor-
hood that are currently on the mar-
ket have recently remodeled kitch-
ens and bathrooms, it would be a
pretty tough sell-to market a home
N% ith all original fixtures afid cabi-
netry at the same pricing levels as
the rest. Here's a handy list of do's
and don't regarding home repairs:
I Do0: Repaint all interior
roomnis with neutral col-
ors. Not only will it make the
home look nicer and less lived
in, but neutral colors are sure
not to offend the design tastes
of prospective buyers. Light
colors also make a room look,
bigger verses a darker colored
0 Do: Consider re-shin-
gling the roof if it is over
15 years old. According
to a recent statistical survey
on home repairs, homes in
Northeast Florida with new
roofs average just over 100%
return on repair costs upon the
resale of the home. This study
included only homes that were
stripped to the bare wood and
then re-shingled. If there is
wood damage present in the
roof from a leak, then chances
are that it will not pass a Wood
Destroying Organism report
(which is required by ,most
lenders) and as a result will
require some roofing repair
anyway. This is where a pre-
marketing inspection will.
come in handy to help tip the
scales on whether or not to go
for the new roof.
Sure, adding a new roof will also
take longer before the home can
1 Do: Update bathrooms
if they are becoming
dated. Nothing says yuckk"
in the mind of a buyer more
than a lime-green matching
toilet and tub set from the 70's.
Sure, they still function okay,
but that doesn't mean they still
work. This especially applies
to any bathrooms that are
adjacent to major living areas
(these are the ones the new
owners will let guests use).
These repairs can be exten-
sive and still payoff. Replace
all fixtures to include sinks,
tubs, showerheads, and even
the toilet. New solid surface
countertops are a great sell-
ing feature here. A remodeled
bathroom fetches nearly 110%
of the costs upon resale.
IZ Do: Consider doing
some minor remodeling
of the kitchen. The kitchen
is one of the most influential
areas of the house. If it looks
a little outdated, the buyers
will never forget that. All-new
cabinets simply cost too much
to replace to ever recoup that
money at closing. However,
older cabinet doors can be eas-
ily replaced with newer styles
at a fraction of the cost of
replacing the entire cabinets.
I can't believe how cheap new
counter tops are these days. A
little know how in basic removal
and installation can go a long way
toward sprucing up the look and

Linoleum is a floor covering whose time
has passed in today's housing market. If it can
be replaced with a moderately priced alterna-
tive, it will be well worth the effort. Finding a
good deal on more energy efficient appliances
is not a bad idea either, depending on how old
the existing ones are. Making room to add in a
dishwasher to a kitchen without one will win
all sorts of favor with buyers.
1] Don't: Bother replacing win-
dows. Everyone loves the idea of dou-
ble-paned thermal windows, but the price

about a 20% loss at resale.
Don't: Remodel any rooms to
include adding customized shehv-
ing or built-in storage spaces.
Built-in shelving units can add a lot of
uniqueness to a room and obviously will
come in handy for the new buyers, but
the shelves might also run the risk of not
fitting in with the buyers' design tastes
or may even hinder their furniture lay-
out ideas. Despite what you may have
seen on one of HGTV's redesign shows,
bare rooms are still the best way to go.
Besides, it would probably cost 25%
more to redesign the room's layout than

Scare up Halloween fun with tricks and door treatments
From a witch enshrined
in cobwebs to a cornucopia
of autumn colors, JELD-
WEN's door decor ideas cap-
ture the spirit of Halloween
- front and center for one of
the heaviest entryway traffic
times of the year.
JELD-WEN, the world's
leading manufacturer of reli-
able windows and doors, of-
fers expert Halloween door
decor advice and creative
harvest themes for a vari-
ety of today's most popular
styles. The designs are made
with colorful and playful
materials, adding to a home's
curb appeal and festive feel.
"When planning Hallow-
een decor. consider the archi-
tectural style of the door first,
then choose a design that
will function best within its
framework," said Elizabeth
Souders, JELD-WEN door
marketing manager. "For
example, a simple wreath or
swag would work best with
a highly detailed front door.
Whereas a simpler door style
would complement a Hal-
loween decoration ith more
color and detail."
When it comes to spend-
ing on Halloween, consum-
ers have no fear. Research
shows Hallow\een is one of
the biggest decorating sea-

sons of the year. Around
60 percent of homeown-
ers purchase decorations,
arid almost half decorate
their homes or yards. Retail
spending amounts are heart-
stopping, totaling more than
$3 billion, according to the-
National 'Retail Federation.
And thanks to trick-or-treat-
ers, the front door and entry-
way gets most of the action.
To dress the door for
the season, some of JELD-
WEN's suggested Hallow-
een door designs incorpo-
rate unique accents, like a
mossy wreath with a devil's
mask and small bats with
red eyes tucked throughout.
The design really "pops"'
when hung on a red door
such as the JELD-WEN@
Steel Provincial@ door. For
a less spooky,. more harvest
season feel, a woven cornu-
copia, filled %ith brilliantly
colored dried flow ers, leaves
and moss overflo%%s to greet
guests throughout the au-
tumn months. All of these
creations, including a simple
and affordable do-it-yourself
option, complement each
door's architectural style,
texture and color.
Fall into the door care
Because Halloween means
a lot of attention on the front
door, it's also a great time
to check your door for any
maintenance or cleaning
"Halloween and the be-.
ginning of the cool weather
is the perfect time to inspect
your doors to make sure
they're in good working or-
der before the chilly win-
ter months," Souders said.
"Just a few quick touch-ups
can add years of life to your
JELD-WEN offers sim-
ple steps to help front doors
look their best for Halloween
Gentle cleaning: Just like
windows, doors can often
use a good wash. JELD-
WEN recommends using
gentle materials such as mix-
ing one teaspoon of baby
shampoo to one gallon of
water. Dry thoroughly with a
clean, soft cloth. Do not use
abrasive tools, harsh liquids,
power washers or hoses that

can damage doors and
Carefully look at the
frame, seals and weath-
erstrip to make sure the
door won't allow cold
air into the home dur-
ing the winter months.
Inspect door sur-
faces: For painted or
stained doors, inspect
the finish on all six r
sides for any signs that
restoration is needed,
such as cracks, dulling
or a whitish cast on the
door's surface. Be sure
to follow the manufac- J
finish when retouch- ,
