The commission voted 4-0

The Glen St. Mary Town
Council decided November 21 to
fine residents who tap into exist-

after they connect to the munici-
pal water system.
After some discussion that
.evening, the board, decided to
levy a $1000 fine for violators,
plus make them fork over legal
and other costs in the event Glen
has to shut down its central water
system due to contamination.
Councilmen fear interruption
of water service similar to that
in Macclenny earlier this month
when one of the city's aging
water mains burst resulting in a
"boil order" until the entire net-
work tested free of contaminants.
The order lasted three days.

Joel Foreman of Lake City urged
stiff fines for what he termed "a
breach of trust" when residents

using their own wells after con-

Councilman Dickie Foster,
a plumbing contractor, again
reminded the board state law
forbids wells within 75 feet of
septic tanks unless water is used
for irrigation only. The town will
continue to allow that.
Mr. Foreman will add the fine
portion to a pending utilities or-
dinance, one of several such
"housekeeping" matters he has
been asked to resolve.
The attorney also reported last
week he is further researching an
ordinance on impact fees, and
recommended Glen take "a fresh
look" at them. The town in July
approved a $2750 fee for new
construction to offset an increase
in services, and will collect the

Mayor Padgett said she fa-
vors a system like Macclenny's
where revenues are funneled out
to agencies like fire and rescue,
police and road department.
In a workshop prior to that
evening's meeting, the council
ordered a $100 security deposit
from tenants connecting to the
water system, compared to $35
for homeowners. Mayor Padgett
urged the higher amount because

Just over two months ago, he became ill and we took him to his
regular doctor. We then discovered he had a problem with fluid on his
ears, along with a runny nose and cough.
Two months and several different medicines later he is still sick.
During his last visit to the first doctor he was sent for an x-ray of his
head to see if he had a blockage or sinus infection.
Three days later, our son was even worse, so we took him for a sec-
ond opinion. We discovered he had developed pneumonia in his left
lung and had a declining oxygen level.
After a breathing treatment, a change in medication and a damn
good scare, I still wonder why his condition was not caught sooner, or
how it could have gotten this bad in just a couple of days.
This letter is not intended to hurt or damage anyone, it's just a way
of saying a second opinion can't hurt. It may be the best way to go.

'Buz zer win' Tuesday
Center Tyler Thomas hit a
last-second buzzer beater to
defeat Baldwin 41-40 in the
Wildcats' home basketball
opener Tuesday evening. Coach
Charles Ruise called time out
with 5.1 seconds left in the game
and the Cats trailing by a point.
Nate Strachen got the in-bound
ball and went up for the shot. It
missed and Thomas pulled down
the layup and immediately put
the ball in as his teammates and
fans mobbed him.
It was a fitting ending to,
the game since Strachen and
Thomas carried the team much
of the way. Strachen got ten of
his game-high 12 points in the
first half, and Thomas got all his,
8 points in the second half. He
also played extremely well on
defense, pulling down multiple
The Cats actually held a 16-
12 lead at the end of the first

Parker free throws. ,
The Indians pulled closer as
the second period progressed
and tied the ball game on a dunk
with 3:50 to go in the half. The
large Baldwin crowd exploded.
But soon after, Kyle Kennedy
drained a three pointer and
Thorne Crowley also. hit from
beyond the three point-line. The
Wildcats extended their lead to a
28-20 margin at the half.
Both teams started ice cold in
the second half. Baldwin tried
to rely on three pointers but
they wouldn't drop. The Indians
closed to within three. points
before Thomas hit a basket at
the end of the third period to put
BCHS up 34-29.
The Wildcats had a hard time
penetrating Baldwin's 2/3 zone,'
'and instead of forcing them
into man to man coverage, they
pushed the ball inside where it
was stolen. Baldwin narrowed
the game to two points w ith 2:30
left in the game and then took
the lead at 1:51 to go. That's
when things really got exciting.
The Indians missed the top
end of a one-and-one and the
Cats got the ball back. Strachen,
who only had one basket in the
second half, tried to penetrate
on the baseline but was hemmed
in by two Indian players. Ruise
saw the predicament and wisely
called time out.
Strachen's last. second shot,
came off the backboard right
into Thomas' hands. He went up
almost uncontested for the layup
and the \win.

I would also like to thank the parents
and fans that braved the cold weather

weather was cold and windy, we still
had so many fans in the stands.for every fail\ to join us as t
game that it felt like we were actually
at a BCHS Wildcats Friday night game. 25th a
This Allstar team was comprised of 21
players from the different Senior Divi-
sion football teams and I want to espe- S 1
cially thank them forworking so hard u nd ay ,
and giving up their time to make all of
this possible. We only had two weeks 1 1
to prepare the kids and some of them 11
had never played football together, but
that didn't slow them down. They were Guest
ready from the minute we set foot on
the field. Reve'ere
In addition to the team receiving
trophies, the BCTC provided the foot- Lulnch follo\\i

The BCHS Lady Wildcat bas-
ketball team had a rough week
leading into the Thanksgiving
break, dropping a pair of games
to two of the top teams in the
district. The were handled easily
by an athletic Bradford County
squad, but battled Ridgeview
down to the wire on the road.
Bradford cruised to a 31-57
win over the Wildcats on the
girls' home court on Monday.
The Tornadoes ran out to an
early lead and never relinquished
it leading horn to horn. It was
a frustrating night for Coach
"They jumped on us early and
it took until the second half until
we finally settled down enough
to play decent ball," commented
Bradford's fast break was
devastating in the early going,
cutting through the Lady \Wild-
cat defense like butter. Bradford
held an 7-20 lead at the end of the
first quarter. The pace slowed a
little in the second period, but the
1Wildcats could not manage to put
the ball in the basket. The\ onl\
scored two buckets in the second
period and \\ere outscored 4-14.
The Tornadoes \\ere up 34-11 at
The Wildcats played the Tor-
nadoes even in the third period.
but couldn't claw their \\wa back
into the game. Bradford's first
half lead \was insunnountable.
The shooting woes showed in
the box scores. None of the Cat
players reached double figures,
with Destin\ de la Pena and Brit-
tan\ Hinson leading the \\ay
with six points. Kara Dupree
had fi'e points. Brittan\ Ruise,
Deanna McKenzie and Caitlin
Griffis had four points and Mea-
gan Osteen a basket.
The girls battled Ridgeview
basket-to-basket, but in the end
they were derailed by free throw
shooting and lost 43-40 to their
district foes. They came back
from the big loss to Bradford and
played well enough to win, but
the ball didn't fall in their favor.
The Cats fell behind to Rid-
geview early and trailed 7-14
points at the end of the first pe-
riod. But they clawed their way
back to a 22-28 deficit at the half.
Neither team shot well after
the intermission, but the Cats
made a big surge in the fourth
quarter to almost come back and
win the game. Coach Griffis was
enthusiastic about the effort.
"I. was very proud of the fact
that we were down by 12 in the
fourth quarter and fought back to
within two points," said Griffis.
"The girls ne\er quit playing
hard and we had a couple of op-
portunities to w in."
In the end. it was the tree throw
shooting that cost them the \\in.
The Cats shot onlI 27' c from
the line. and when it counted the
most. the ball %wouldn't drop.
Hinson led the Cats with 14
points, hitting four three point-
ers. Griffis added 8 'ind Ruise
7 points. Destin\ de la Pena hit
for 5 and Meagan Osteen. Sarah
Tra\iick and Deanna NIcKenzie
all had a basket.
The Lad\ Cats have a big
ataa\ match at Santa Fe on
