Baker County residents who believe the area is growing too
fast can relax a bit.
The real estate and housing slump that began nationwide
during the summer is clearly obvious here as 2006 draws to a
close. The balloon that was a frenzied re-sale and new home
market the past two years has burst, and property priced at
"old" levels sits unsold.
The downward slump is most noticeable in the new housing
market developments like Sands Pointe. Rolling Meadows,
Heritage Oaks and Cypress Pointe that sprouted up around the
fringes of Macclenny in 2006.
They are planned and platted subdivisions by out-of-county
companies like KB Homes, Drees and Richmond American,
Watson and Maronda, all specialists in the mid-range market
of homes costing $175.000-$275,000,
For the time being, they are all scaling back. waiting for an
uptick in the new housing market expected by mid-2007.
Look at the numbers: The City of Macclenny issued 111
new home permits in 2006 through November 91 of them
January through July when the market starting falling off. Had
activity continued at the same pace, total permits for 2006
would be riding around 156. Compare that to 115 in 2005.
Even with the downturn, the projected pace for all of 2006
will be 143 new home permits in the city. a respectable 24%
increase over last Near.
Outside the Cit, of Macclenny. new housing starts dropped
to three permit applications this month, down from nine last
year in November. In October, there were four applications
compared to seven last year.
"It starting slowing in the summer, but you have to remem-
ber we deal [outside Nlacclenny] mostly with individuals
building for themselves." said Robert Hathcox. the county's
building official. "Our activity won't pick tip until some of
these large developments they are proposing get underway."
KB Homes, developer of the proposed Greystone subdivi-
sion east of Baker County High School. is scaling back for the
time being to a first plat of 50 homesites. down from the origi-
nal 230 first proposed. A spokeswoman for the builder did not
respond to requests for comment on the company's strategy
for 2007 and beyond, but site preparation continues at the tract
off US 90 in east Glen St. Mary.
The residential real estate. "existing home" market in Baker
County has stagnated in the closing months of 2006. and prop-
erties priced at the "boom" level are staying on the market.
"The wv a the market is now, sellers are ha\ ing to come
down on prices it's no longer their market." observes Wayne

speakers at the public hearing this

In an impassioned three-min-
ute address, M s. Barber noted
that Brian Mala. chief operating
officer of Adrian Development

the "industrial development ele-
ment" from Cedar, Creek's mas-
"Brian was honest with me
and said he eliminated it because.

Mr. May, who along with
other Adrian employees and
professional planners who have
worked on Cedar Creek and at-
tended Tuesday's meeting, told
the board just prior to the vote
other entities indicated they are
. interested in bringing industrial
jobs here, but he did nqt name
them nor where they intend to
purchase development land.
He argued that setting aside
300-plus acres without immedi-

Adrian's market analysis shows
ample industrial land available in
this region like Cecil Field.

"All the builders are busy trying
to sell off their inentofies.".,
,-Watson is running ads offer-
ing $20.000 off new construction
contracts at Heritage Oaks and
Mr. Warren said system wide the
builder is lowering its margins to
: near-zero to move houses.
He doesn't see the market
climbing back to pre-July levels
when new and on-market hous-
ing rose to often unrealistic lev-
els, but predicts an upswing by'
the second quarter of 2007.
Many economists agree with
that assessment, calling the pres-
ent slump a "market correction."
.The continued availability of
mortgage money at relatively
low interestrates will feed the
comeback, they add.
Ed Preston, Baker County's
planning official, looks at slow-
downs as breathing room.
"We typically have a broader
horizon than most builders, usu-
ally about five years into the fu-
ture," said Mr. Preston. "These
downturns have more of an effect
on developments in the 50-100
acre range. They don't seem to
effect the larger ones as much."
Mr. Preston doesn't see the
late-2006 slump having any ef-
fect on plans of a Miami-based
developer for Cedar Creek north-
west of Glen St. Mary, a 3000-
acre project that will eventually
have 7000 homes. The County
Commission this week turned
down the initial bid to send a
DRI application off to the Flor-
ida Department of Community

Title company activity is gen-
erally an accurate bellweather of

Naquin Chitty of the C.B.
Isaac realty office in Macclenny
is taking an upbeat approach for
2007, based on recent inquiries.
"I'm encouraged by the great-
er number of calls coming in the
past month," she said. "People
still want to move to Baker Coun-
t) and land is holding its own."
Ms. Chint notes the number
of listings on the MLS service
for Baker County averaged 50-
60 since summer, but.of late rose
to above 100. On Tuesday there
were 106 properties and 28 pend-
One of the pending is over
$300,000 and several are in the
high $200s. the majority fall in
the under $200.000 category and
that's where she sees the greatest
activity for now.
So, what dohwe know?

disputes that as No\ember draws
to a close. If you were a seller
and wanted in on the "feeding
frenzy" that \\ as 2005 and half of
2006, you've missed the boat.
If You're a buyer in Baker
County in '2007, and you either
have the cash or the ability to get
a mortgage, the slump may be
working in your favor.
If you're one of the large-
scale developers caught in the
flat zone, you've seen this before

Thanksgiving tale reminds us our
'flubs' not always as bad aswe think
My favorite Thanksgiving story \\as told to me
b1 a family friend. It seems his grandparents, who
were very poor, had been able to put aside enough
extra money to buy a turkey to
serve at the holiday meal instead -
of killing a chicken. TH E"
The big bird was lovingly and

The house was spic'n span and the table was set'
with the best dishes and the single good table cloth
used only on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.

eaten. They had been thoroughly prepared to mind
their manners too, because the preacher would be

to ha\e the grown-up responsibility of carrying the
turkey from the kitchen- to the dining room table
and setting it before the preacher, who would have
the honor of blessing, carving and serving it.
Avery was excited and very nervous at this
awesome responsibility his grandparents had
bestowed upon him.
With his hair slicked back and wearing his best
Sunday clothes, he held the large platter steady as
his grandma loaded on the turkey. After she added
some sugar coated clusters of grapes for decoration,
she held open the swinging door that separated the
kitchen from the dining room and Avery began to

seated at the table, smiling and waiting. It was
Avery's most grown-up experience to date and he
felt very important until his toe stubbed the door

the air,lhit the floor, slid under the
table and came to rest right at the

'He had embarrassed his family and most of all
his grandmother. He had ruined everything. He
felt he would collapse in a dead faint right where
he stood, but not before wetting his parts, thus
adding to an already nearly unfathomable shame.
He wanted to die.
But at such moments, grandmothers are
sometimes possessed of an uncanny wisdom and
control of character that defies explanation.
Avery's grandmother looked him straight in the
eye with an unwavering gaze that communicated
volumes and said gently but firmly: "Avery, it's

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Outspok'n is an abstinence
education program administered
through the Baker and Nassau,
Count) departments of health.
The program pro% ides a fo-
rum that encourages teens to
make wise choices and set
boundaries regarding sexual ac-
tivity and alcohol and drug use.
The primary mission of
Outspok'n is to encourage pre-
teens and teenagers to remain
sexually abstinent until mar-
riage, which eliminates the risks
of contracting a sexually trans-
mitted disease or becoming preg-
nant out of wedlock. In Baker
County, the program serves stu-
dents ages 9 through 18 in the
middle school, high school and
at the YMCA. A specific club
exists at each location.
Abstinence organizations ex-
ist nationally, but students in-
volved with the Baker and Nas-
sau County programs adopted
the name Outspok'n to distin-
guish their group.
The students felt the name
best described the program's fo-
rum for them to ask questions,
gain understanding and then
promote their adopted philoso-
phy to the community.
Through the Outspok'n pro-
gram, health or life management
classes in the public schools are
supplemented by presentations
given by health department
teachers Elisha Lane and Amber
Lenford. They lecture on human
anatomy, statistics of sexually
transmitted disease, prevention,
and other related topics. For ex-
ample: One in four teenagers en-
gages in sexual activity and one
million acquire a sexually trans-
mitted disease each year.
At the beginning of the school
year the different Outspok'n
clubs have open enrollment. In-
terested students sign a commit-
ment form which must be shared
with and approved by their par-
ents. The commitment is the stu-
dent's personal pledge to abstain
from sexual activity until com-
mitted to a monogamous mar-

as a planning and information

police they went to the residence
with the other truck occupants to
purchase prescription drugs.
The older female teen is re-
portedly Mr. Hakes' girlfriend,
and he became angry when they
showed up at his residence with
two other males. They and the
truck were parked about 100 feet
from the residence at the time.
Also questioned as witnesses
were Mr. Hakes' two juvenile
age brothers, who along with
others were slightly injured by
fence wire as they fled from the
direction of the gunshots.
In a second, unrelated case-
involving aggravated assault
with a firearm, Paul Bailey, 32,
of Baldwin was arrested after he
allegedly pointed a .38 caliber
pistol at Andy Bradford, 32, of

Mr. Bradford said he chased
the accused on foot to the nearby
intersection of Morris and Col-
lege, and confronted him. It was
then Mr. Bradford said the pistol
was pointed at him. He backed
away, but again followed the
Honda on foot to near US 90 and
South 6th where he persuaded
an unnamed motorist to tail the
Honda, which by then turned
south on 6th.
Deputy Bennett said the SUV
containing Mr. Bradford flagged
him down and advised the officer
the Honda was in a line of traffic
at the nearby stop light.
The officer stopped the Honda
moments later, and Mr. Bailey
said he was repossessing the car.
He also acknowledged he had the
pistol under a seat. Deputy Ben-
nett said Mr. Bailey did not have
a permit to have the weapon, nor
did he have authorization papers
to repossess the vehicle.
Repossession agencies rou-
tinely notify the sheriff's depart-
ment when they come into the
county. Mr. Bailey did not do
that, either, and said his mother
dropped him off at Mr. Brad-
ford's residence. She later con-

"We try to get the serious mes-
sage content across, but keep the
fun in it, too," she said.
For example, a program may
be focused on the realities of
teen pregnancy, which few stu-
dents comprehend. Tent dis-
plays are set up and large price
tags call attention to the many
areas of enormous financial re-
sponsibility. Taken as a whole,
the message has a strong impact
on a teen's thought process and
Students participate in absti-
nent promotion activities which
are often held in conjunction
with media representation. Part
of the grant that helps fund the
Outspok'n program involves
marketing support to promote
the abstinent message in print,
and over radio and television,
usually featuring club members.
Prom Night Abstinence is a big
project promoted by the clubs in

Six Outspok'n members from
Baker County High School
were recently featured in a com-
mercial which aired on CW
Channel 17 during prime time
According to Ms. Lewis, the
Outspok'n commercial was seen
in conjunction with episodes of
Seventh Heaven, Gilmore Girls
and Dancing With The Stars.
"Lots of students saw their
peers' on television promot-
ing the abstinence message and
commented on it. It got their at-
tention, which is what we're
working for," said Ms. Lewis.
Parents, guardians or oth-
er adults involved in the teen's
life are encouraged to partici-
pate in the Outspok'n programs
and promotion activities, to help
enforce the abstinence message
by providing positive adult role
Statistics indicate that it takes
five years for a message to make
an impact and for results to be-
gin to show up in the public
"We're beginning to see some
results from our program. At
this point the results are small,
but they have begun. That's en-
couraging," says Ms. Lewis.

Mr. Hutcheson had been
steadily hemorrhaging and the
hospital was having trouble put-

negative blood needed to help
save his life.
Finally, the blood was avail-
able, but his blood pressure was
dropping steadily and the hem-
orrhaging seemed out of con-
trol. The doctors worked hard to
keep him from slipping away.
Mr. Hutcheson recalls a doc-
tor telling him after the surgery,
"You were losing blood as fast
as we could give it to you."
While lying in the operat-
ing room close to death, Mr.
Hutcheson believes he was vis-

that he heard a rustling sound
and saw the room light up as if
it were filled with sparklers. The

The Baker County Commis-
sion this week turned down a
request by a resident off Wood-
lawn Road for a zoning change
allowing a conventional home
on a half-acre lot.
Robert Gray sought the change
from a one-acre minimum either
to sell off the tract or build there
himself, but neighbors of the area
off Larimer and Dupree roads
protested, arguing it diverts from
the original plat and devalues
their property. Curt Tharpe, who
spoke against the re-zoning dur-
ing a hearing the evening of No-
vember 21, presented a petition
signed by a dozen others.
Mr. Gray told the board he
was being "piled on" because
of recent protests to a proposed
subdivision off Woodlawn just
east of Dupree. The half-acre is'
vacant and he argued it would be
far more valuablee %\ith a struc-
Commissioner Mark Hartle),
in whose district the neighbor-
hood lies, agreed with Mr. Thar-
pe that most residents moved
there because of larger lot size

re-zoning. Commissioner Julie
Combs seconded and it drew

proved for Da\ id and Jacqueline

The minimum acreage was 7.5.
The motion to appro\ e con-
tained the stipulation of a life-
time deed restriction to prevent
them from selling off the lots to
The board .granted similar
changes to Claudette Crawford
and her son Bentley Rhoden to
re-zone 1.43'acres from agricul-
ture to, commercial for mini-stor-
age units. The property is at the
.west end of ten acres off Hodges
Road just west of Interstate 10
and SR 121.
^'The counts 's planning depart-
ment recommended passage of
all the changes.

day regular meeting, board mem-
bers sympathized with Buck

but lamented there was little that

The best hope for paving at
least part of the often washed-out
road would be inclusion in DRI

Cats struyle in re-season,
get victory over W Nassau
The Lady Wildcat basketball
team started its season with a
tough loss to Hilliard, but re-
bounded to finish the week with
a pair of big wins. It was a good
start for the girls, who looked
good in the pre-season with a'
tournament win to their credit.
It looked as if the Cats were
going to have their way with the
Flashes. They jumped out to a big
16-5 lead with strong shooting
and rebounding. Hilliard woke
up in the second quarter and by
halftime, held a 27-21 lead.
Baker regrouped somewhat in
the locker room at the half and
trimmed the Flashes' lead to 31-
35. From there it stayed even
through the fourth quarter, with
Hilliard winning 44-41.
Brittany Hinson led the way
for the Wildcats. The senior
dropped in 15 points.All of them
came from outside the three-point
stripe. Brittaii Ruise added 8
points. Destiny de la Pena, Dean-
na McKenzie, and Caitlin Griffis
each had 4 points. Michelle Lo-
pez had a three pointer and Kara
Dupree added a basket.
It was quite a different story
in the West Nassau game as the
Lady Cats led from the opening
tip to win 59-50.
"The girls responded well to
the challenge to step up the in-
tensity after the Hilliard game,"
said Coach Franklin Griffis.
"They came out playing very
aggressive on both offense and
The Cats led by eight at the
half and built on the lead through
the third and fourth quarters. Brit-
tany Ruise was top scorer with
16 points. Hinson had 15 points
including two from beyond the
three-point line. Deanna McK-
enzie had 8 points, Lopez and
Griffis 6 and de la Pena 3 points.
The girls pounded Yulee on
Friday 41-19 to run their record
to 2-1 in the young season. The
Cats started slow, walking out to
a 7-2 first period lead, then ran
their lead to 10, with a 16-6 edge
at the half.
Coach Griffis woke them up
at the half and the girls had a big
third quarter, doubling the lead at
30-15 and building from there.
"We didn't get off to a great.
start and certainly didn't play our
best game, but we played well
enough on defense to.hold them
to a few points and come away
with a win," said Griffis. "Every-
one was able to contribute to the
win and score points."
Hinson led the way with 13
points, 9 of which came from
three pointers. Griffis had 6
points, de la Pena and McKenzie
4 points. Dupree, Sarah Trawick
and Lopez had 3 points. Meagan
Osteen and Ruise had 2 points
and Jessi Nunn added a free
The Lady Cats will be off for
the holiday, but take on Middle-
burg in a big district game on the
road November 27 at 6lpm and'
7- nm ..... ......
The Wildcat basketball team
got 18 points from Thorn Crow-
ley and 16 from Nate Strachen
on the road in Callahan as the
boys opened their regular season
with a 75-56 victory over West
Nassau. The win helps erase
the memory of a poor pre-sea-
son performance in the Baldwin
Tournament when the Cats lost
both their games.
The Wildcats steadily built on
a lead buzzer to buzzer' against
the' Warriors. Coach Charles
Ruise substituted freely, and got
scoring from the majority of the.
The Cats' pressure defense
gave the Warriors trouble
throughout most of the game and
Thorne collected seven steals as a
result of the tight pla\. The War-.,
riors weren't having much luck
on the inside against the sticky
Cat defense and had to rely on
three-point shots to sta\ close.
West Nassau drained three
pointers in the first period, but
BCHS stayed even with three
of their own and owned a 17-14
quarter lead. They increased it to
36-27 at the half as the Warriors
went cold from the perimeter.
Crowley didn't ice up, howev-
er, hitting on a pair of treys early
in the quarter. The Wildcats have
x\orked hard on their free throw
shooting and it paid off, as 10
of their 19 second period points
came from the charity stripe.
The Cats never really ran
away with the game, but it was
clear which team was tops on
the night. Baker was a step or
two faster and easily more ac-

points and the Episcopal Eagles
by 9 in Baldwin.
The Flashes built a quick 10-
point lead. and though the Cats
fought back to 29-34 at the half,
the Flashes were able to hold
them off in the second half for
a 60-48 win.: Thorne had 17
points and Kyle Kennedy had 13
The Episcopal game was a nip

came out on top 49-40. Strachen
led the way with 15 points and
Parker had 10 in a losing effort.

Check out the
Player of the Week -
Lady Wildcat senior guard Brittany Hinson is this week's Wild-
cat Player of the Week. Hinson scored a total of 43 points over the
three games the Lady Cats played this week.
The hot shooting guard's forte is the long
ball. Hinson rainbowed in 8 three-point shots
in matches against Yulee, West Nassau and
Coach Franklin Griffis has had the luxury of
watching Hinson grow as a shooter and as a
.i team leader. A four year player, she has stuck.
.. it out through winless seasons and seen the
team gain experience and victories.
I She helped lead the Cats to a pre-season
1 30 L,- tournament title and a current 2-2 record.
1 Hinson has quickness and strength and can
Ms. Hinson shrug off defenders to score. She has a quick
release and is the most accurate three point
shooter on the team.
Coupled with Brittany Ruise, Hinson provides a good one/two
scoring punch for the Cats. Coach Griffis is looking for a big sea-
son from his senior scorer.

U of Miami
I woke up Sunday morning
and walked out to the living
room where my wife was drink-
ing coffee and reading the paper
while waiting impatiently for the
replay of the Gator game on the
Sunshine cable channel. That
strikes me as odd since-she went
to the game.
t "I want to see what I missed,"
is her standard answer.
Today, however, she dropped
a sports bombshell on me.
"Guess who's going to be the
next Miami Hurricane coach?"
"I wasn't aware that they'd
fired Larry Coker."
"Cart before the horse," I said,
heading for the coffee machine.
"You want to know?"
"The Old Ball Coach is going
"You heard it here first."
"Sure did. Where'd you hear
"Thai's ju hat then 're sa\ ing."
"'They'. are ?"
"That's right," she answered
"You can take it to the bank."
"Well, if it's true that will
leave the rest of the ACC quak-
ing in their Adidas. Thai's actu-'
ally not even fair somehow."
It really isn't, you know. Mi-
ami can get so many great re-.
cruits just by being Miami, with
their history of moving people
straight into the NFL. Adding
the Old Ball Coach to the mix
should be some violation of the
t Spurrier is so cagey, so smart,
s crafty, that when you put su-
per4ast, athletes into the situa-
tion, things like ACC titles and
national championships will be
a natural reaction. As a Miami
despiser, it makes me a little nau-
seous to consider it.
SSupposedly, "they" claim'
the Old Visor Thrower wants to
leave South Carolina and that
Miami has expressed interest
about giving him the job. With
the sub-.500 season the Hurri-
canes are having and the on-go-
ing discipline problems, it's a
foregone conclusion that Coker
is gone at the end of the season.
This afternoon, I heard it re-
ported on the NFL Today, so I
guess Kelley and her assorted
sources are right on target.
I'm already dreading next
season's Miami/FSU game.
