For NEFSH pact
After revising in the county's
fax or the "\ay the state calculates
local matching funds, the Baker
County Commission on Decem-
ber 5 voted to pay $66.820 as its
share this fiscal year of a men-
tal health ser ices contract \ ith
Northeast Florida State Hospital.
The four-vear-old Commu-
nity Behavioral Health Services
initially sought $126.694 as
Baker County's share of the net
annual contract, and that number
was whittled down to $98.494
after further deductions like third
party payments for clients and
the $16.200 already committed
by the commission last summer.
Agency representative Tonya
Branch appealed to the county
board this week to make up the
difference, which the Depart-
ment of Children and Families
said represents one-third of the
contract requiring a match.
County Manager Joe Cone
pointed out the state's formula of
a 75-25 match ratio dictates the
county's share is then a fourth of
the net applicable budget, not a

the python

Anybody seen a 33-inch long
bald python?
It's \\hereabouts are a bit of
a mystery since the 20-year-old
Glen St. Mary man who admits
to stealing it doesn't remember
what he did with the reptile.
Christopher Woolf, in an in-
tevie%\ November 30 \with Lt.
Chuck Brannan and Investigator
Steve Harvey,. said he \\as drunk
and high on prescription medica-
tion when he took the snake from
Gregory Griffis' residence on
South 4th St. in Macclenny. The
theft occurred the previous day.
Mr. Griffis. w\ho is confined
to a wheelchair. told police the
accused came to his house about
7:20 and, after asking to hold the
snake, intentionallI knocked out
a light and plunged the room into
darkness. Mr. Woolf complied
with the ow ner's request to turn a
light back on. and realized when
Mr. Woolf left soon after that he
had taken the snake.
The accused., \ho lies at
7881 Narrow Trail in Glen St.
Mary. got in touch with Mr.
Griffs the follow ing day and ad-
mitted taking the python valued
at $350, and offered to pay for
it because he could not locate it.
Mr. Woolf's girlfriend Lindsey
Chase also telephoned the owner
to promise Mr. Woolf would sell
his ATV to raise the cash.

Bald pythons are generally considered good pets and don't pose a
danger to humans, unlike some of their close relatives like Burmese
pythons that grow to 30-feet in length. The bald species with its distinct
markings rarely gets over eight feet, according to Brian Higginbotham
of Callahan, an amateur snake expert who has several for pets.
"They (larger ones) can'be dangerous to smaller animals includ-
ing cats and small dogs," he said. Whether they seize prey depends
largely on their quirky appetites since they can go months without eat-
- ing, he explained. A snake the size of the missing one normally feeds
on mice.
Bald pythons are easily recognizable with a black and brown pat-
4tern of striping with white stomachs.
As of Tuesday of this week, Investigator Harvey said the python is
still at large.

lower figure on a motion by
Commissioner Julie Combs.
Ms. Combs also wants the
agency to justify by job descrip-
tion and other means the $90.000(
annual salary of the agency's lo-
cal director Todd Berchen.
The county entered its initial
agreement itnh NEFSH in 2001
and according to Ms. 'Branch,
subsequent annual audits have
pointed out that Baker County
fell short on its agreed-upon lo-
cal match.
"This has been building up.
Baker is the only county in
[DCF's] District 4 that is not
matching funds," she explained.
Commissioner Alex Robinson
pointed out that Conmnunit\ Be-
havioral Health Services came
late to the table during budget
deliberations last summer, par-

penciling in the $16,200 as local

".Did %%e not paN this in the
past because they didn't ask us?
If we don't owe it, that's differ-
ent. I'll vote against it."
Assured it wasn't a matter of
owing more than the contract re-
quired, Mr. Crews joined fellow
commissioners in a unanimous

vote to pay the lower amount.
The sum will be drawn from the
county's contingency fund, and
the .funding re-visited in 2007
budget talks.
A spread sheet submitted'
by Ms. Branch shows contract
amounts since fiscal 2001 for the
service at $2.5 million, requiring
by the state's math formula a lo-
cal match of $775,506. Of that
the county paid $57,680, a rela-
tively low amount even .if Mr.
Cone's formula is used.

The magic of Yule

lights, then and now


It's hard for modern Ameri-
cans to imagine Christmas with-
out thousands of electric, colored
lights. Before the ad ent of pub-
lic electricity in the late 1890s,
the holiday, from a visual stand-
point, looked very different.
Traditionally, Christmas trees
were lit by candles for a short
time on Christmas eve to cele-
brate the gathering of family and
friends a beautiful, but woeful-
ly messy and potential danger-
ous practice.
Three years after Thomas
Edison developed durable light
bulbs, his associate Edward
Johnson used them to electrical-
ly light a Christmas tree for the
first time. Johnson lived in the
first section 'of New\ York Cit\
to be wired for electricity and he
set up the display in the parlor of
his home. The electrically light-,
ed tree caused such a stir that a
visiting reporter from the Detroit
Post and Tribune %\ rote about it:
"...the eighty lights encased in
glass eggs. in colors of red, white
and blue, presented a most pic-
turesque and uncanny aspect all
In 1895 President Cleveland
presented the first electrically
lit Christmas tree in the White
House and the entire country
took notice. Grand Christmas
tree lighting parties, extrava-
gant and costly events, became
fashionable among high society.
Electric sockets had not yet been
introduced to provide easily ac-
cessible use of electricity. Elec-
tric generators and the services
of a wireman to hand wire each
light had to be contracted at the
average cost of $300, equivalent
to $2,000 in today's dollars.
Then came battery operated
lighting strings. Eventually the
first sets of pre-wired sockets,
called festoons, were introduced

by the General Electric Compa-
ny and the American Christmas
lighting industry was born.
It was a treat to see the Christ-
mas lights when I was grow-
ing up. Our family actually set
aside one evening before Christ-
mas to drive around the city.
Over the years, I memorized the
lighting displays of individual
I knew where the ten foot an-
gel Would be standing on the
roof, which yard the eight rein-
deer would be frolicking in and
which porch would feature a fam-
ily of snowmen. An entire tree,
outlined in white bulbs from the
bottom of its trunk to the high-
est point of its upward reaching
branches stood on the grounds
of the Lutheran Seminary and
looked like a giant, intergalactic
mushroom. '
Now, everything concei -
able is lit. I've seen old junk cars
on blocks out in, a field lit with
racer lights and even a group of
tombstones outlined in lights that
twinkled. ,
I think of all this as I stand in
my back yard and look out over
the fence. It's late evening, it's
foggy and the reporters on Chan-.
nel 4 have been cautioning driv-
ers about the fog.
My neighbor has a string of
snowflake lights along his porch
and they have a timer some-
thing Thomas Edison would
have gotten a kick out of. The
evening fog softens the edges of
the snowflakes, and gives them a
ghostly appearance. They blink
frantically for about twenty sec-
onds then shift to a slower pace,
finally resting as if catching their
breath a moment before launch-
ing into the next. cycle of blink-
ing and winking.
I love all the lights and the
twinkling, but nostalgically, I
long to see an entire tree with
small candles on its many branch-
es, lit and blazing in the parlor as
happy family and friends sing
Christmas carols and sip wassail
and mulled wine and give kisses
under the mistletoe.

Wonders what happened

December 5,2006
was going to be a feel-good article
about the support we have here from
a majority of the Iraqi people and
how our presence here has made a
difference in their lives.
It didn't turmm out that way.
We did roll into a new month,
which is always good, but moreso
because November was one of the
deadliest months in Iraq since 2003
and the ouster of Saddam Hussein.
In November, 1,846 Iraqi civil-
ians were killed, according to a re-
port from the Interior Ministry office.
This is 43 percent higher than the
estimated toll in October. Of course,
the numbers you hear depend on who,
is reporting them. Some people argue
the death toll from violence in Iraq is
still less per capital than some major
U.S. cities, including our nation's
One problem here is I'm not sure
anybody knows what is happening to
I talked on a daily basis with an
Iraqi employee who worked in our
building. She had three lovely kids,
and always greeted us with a big hug
and brought dates or baked pastries
to us. We in turn gave her bags full of
goodies we received like candy, gum
and soap.
I asked her one day if she thought
Iraq was better now than when Sad-
dam was in power. She said without
hesitation, "Yes." She went on to
explain that even though the infra-
structure is less reliable than before
and the neighborhoods including
hers which is one of the most danger-
ous in Baghdad were not safe, that
the ouster of Saddam at least offered
something she could only dream of
under Saddam.
"Our lives are very hard," she
said, "but at least my children now
have hope for a better life in the fu-
That made me feel good. The
good feeling, like most of those here,
didn't last long.
Within a couple of days of one of
our longer talks when she told me
of her dream of one day moving her
children to the US, he didn't show up

for work. That was unusual, but we
didn't think too much about it at first
until another Iraqi employee, one of
our friend's neighbors, told us she
and her son had been kidnapped.
That has been a couple of weeks
ago. Each day her neighbor gave us
updates. The best news he could give
us was as he and other neighbors
scoured the morgues each day, she
and her son had not been found in
one of them.
Most of us at this point, includ-
ing many of us who had grown too
attached to her family, realize we
probably will never know of what
happened to her, her teenage son and
the two bright younger children with
whom we shared candy, gave stuffed
animals and mugged for dumb pic-
Most of the remainder of her fam-
ily has left Iraq for Syria, which she
told me was not safe but cheaper than
Jordan or Egypt. I found out today her
neighbor has also left the country.
So we all sit here, wait and won-
der. We wonder about whether the
fact she was probably observed com-
ing to work for us, despite her efforts
to cover the fact, led to her kidnap-
ping. We wonder if it was a bag of
candy or some other American prod-
uct we gave her that tipped off the
bad guys; or maybe even one of her
S I wonder if she would still tell me
today that she loved the American
soldiers and that the only time she
and her neighbors felt safe was when
they saw our guys patrolling their
Mainly I wonder about the thin
line of hope she talked about for her
children. Hope for a better future
in a country where, while writing
this column, I have written, deleted
and written again to' eliminate every
possible trace of identity that might
imperil her and her family further. A
country where we blur the faces of
Iraqis in photos we take to protect
their identity.
That is the country of hope she
lived in.
I can only hope and pray that she
and her kids still have that hope for a
better life, no matter where they are.

Twenty years ago, the Baker
County Chamber of Commerce
. sponsored a visioning process for
community leaders. The cham-
ber,, development commission,
City of Macclenny, and county
commissioners identified Baker
County's strengths and weak-
.nesses and developed the Eco-
nomic Development Strategy for
Baker County.
The plan emphasized the need
for ready-to-go industrial sites.
The sitesAould entice prospects
to build manufacturing plants
and distribution centers in the
county. The development would
create high-wage jobs and widen
the county's ad valorem tax base.
The revenue generated from the
property taxes would fund coun-
ty services.
The plan was simple but the
implementation was another

Dear Editor:
Last Saturday we had a won-
derful Christmas Parade, as al-
ways, and I was astounded by
the number of people who came
even though the weather was
pretty miserable.
I must say I'm appalled at the
way parade viewers treated prop-
erty. When the parade ended, all
I saw were empty cups, candy
wrappers and even a half-eaten
turkey leg all thrown on the
Some of the people who set
up lawn chairs earlier in the day
covered them with trash bags,
and after the parade they didn't
fill those bags with trash lying
at their very feet. Instead, they
threw the bags on the ground.

and two gentlemen I never met
before cleared up the trash left on
the comer where we enjoyed the

This winner is a 'big loser'

Jack Hinson kicked soft drink, other habits to ose 100-plus pounds

Press Staff
Back in April, Jack Hinson
got some serious news from Dr.
Charles Scarborough.
"Your blood sugar count is
317, Jack. You have got to do
something to help yourself," the
Macclenny doctor told him.
By his own admission, Mr.
Hinson had seriously let himself
go. The Glen St.
Mary resident was
*tipping the scales
-'at 291 pounds. He
was addicted to
Coke, consuming
a 12-pack daily.
:It wasn't uncom-
mon for him to eat
supper three times
while he watched
television late into
the evening.
"I didn't just
eat a few pieces of
chicken or a few
ribs. I ate an entire
plate of chicken or
ribs," he recalls.
,"Then dessert.,
Then more Coke." 'i
Mr. Hinson de- "
veloped high blood
,pressure and dia-
betes, which his
' /weight gain ag- ,
;gravated. 'I was a
mess," he admit
-as he looks at a
photo of his former
hefty self taken last
,spring. ..-.. H,,,f..-..
s Back in 1991,
'Mr. Hinson suf-
fered an accident that nearly.
:severed his right hand. Recon-
structive surgery, poorly per-
"formed, left him disabled. It was
:a struggle to find work, as em-
;ployers were reluctant to hire
'someone with his disability. He
spent years searching fruitlessly
for an opportunity and finally
:resolved himself to the fact that
,.no one would hire him.
: He hated the idea of not con-
tributing so he devoted himself
,,to the care of his three children.
which allowed his \ife Wendy
ito \\ ork full-time. He took care
,of the housework, running the
vacuum cleaner with his good
*.arm, got meals on the table
,,and made sure homework as-
signments were complete. He
gained a new respect for what
housewives and working moth-
ers handled in their lives.
SAlthough Mr. Hinson never
*,neglected helping his family, he
eventually neglected taking care
of himself.
"When no one has the confi-
dence to give you a chance for
employment and you're at home
looking at those four walls all
the time, well, that can do some-
thing to a man's pride," he said.
"I just let myself go and gradu-
ally my weight ballooned up to
'291 pounds.
Dr. Scarborough had helped
Mr. Hinson get considerable re-
lief from a back problem and
managed the ongoing care of his
disabled hand. Now, the doctor
kindly but directly informed his
patient of the cold, hard outcome
of his situation if he continued to
gain weight and consume mas-
sive amounts of sugar.

"He told me if I kept on my
current path, I would end up in
a wheel chair, possibly suffer
a stroke or die from a heart at-
tack," says Mr. Hinsorn. "I heard
him loud and clear."
Mr. Hinson credits God with
opening his ears that day and let-
ting Dr. Scarborough's message
make a strong impact. That day
in the doctor's office, he reached

deep down inside himself and
made a commitment to change.
He decided not to resort to or-
ganizations like Weight Watch-
ers. He felt it more important to
lose the weight on his own. He.
quit drinking Coke and substi-
tuted Seven-Up Plus made with
fruit juice and Splenda, which
Dr. Scarborough recommended
to help manage his sugar levels.
He cut down on portion sizes
of meat and raised his intake of
Vegetables and fruit. He stopped
eating after 10:00 in the eve-
ning. It took thirty days to suc-
cessfully alter his eating habits
and get accustomed to his new
diet regime. Sometimes it was a
tough experience.
"Watching someone drink a
Coke man that was murder,",
Mr. Hinson laughs.
After 30 days he started in-
corporating exercise. The sup-
port of family helped him stick
to it. The entire family would go
to the middle school and hike
around the track. Mr. Hinson be-

gan using martial arts stretching
and kicking routines to burn the
calories. If he got to 25 repeti-
tions, he'd push on to 100. The
fact that it was summer helped,
too. He just pretended he was in
a sauna at the gym, sweating off
the pounds.
At home, he was eating
grapefruit and making fresh car-
rot and orange juice and enjoy-.
ing the special Sev-
en Up Plus drink
with no guilt. The
weight began to fall
off steadily, then
S His pant size
decreased by 1-2
inches weekly and
there were a some,
weeks hq lost as
much as 18 pounds.
Every week he had
to'buy a new pair
of pants in a small-
er size. His weekly
losses were doc-
umented by Dr.
Every time he
was tempted to go
off his routine he
would declare to
himself "My wife
and kids need me
n -., and my life is worth
more than a damn
plate of ribs!"
y. To date, Mr.
Hinson has lost
over 100 pounds
and is maintain-
al enoe ing his weight at
190. He no longer
has to take oral insulin for the
type II diabetes he was plagued
with and Dr. Scarborough re-
cently took him off the medicine
that was controlling high blood
When asked what she wanted
for her upcoming birthday, Mr.
Hinson's wife looked lovingly
at her husband wearing size 32
jeans and said, "This is my pres-
ent a new,, healthy husband."
Mr. Hinson says he has actu-
all\ enjo ed losing the N\eight
anld still ha SOmie \ork to do
on the "'love ha ndles'" around
his middle, but at this point he
is confident those will disappear
eventually also.
With his new, deep commit-
ment to health, his faith in God
and his attentive doctor, he feels
he can't go wrong.
"And I've got my trusty Sev-
en Up Plus," he smiles. They
must make this stuff in Heaven.
I couldn't have made it thisfar
without it."

'Tuna X-mas'

brings laughs

to small town

for holidays
It's 24 hours before Christ-
mas and everything that could
go wrong in the town of Tuna,
Texas, is guaranteed to happen
as BCHS presents the hilarious
comedy, A Tuna Christmas this
Thursday, Friday and Saturday at
7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:00 pm
in the Baker High auditorium.
In addition to all the normal
traumas that afflict the wacky
citizens of Texas' third smallest
town, a Christmas Phantom is
wrecking the annual Christmas
yard display contest. The Phan-
tom puts boxer shorts on all the
sheep in the nativity scene and
the town is in a tizzy to find the
culprit. If that's not enough, the
power company is threatening
to turn the lights off on the Little
Theatre's production of A Christ-
mas Carol if they don't pay an
overdue light bill.
A Tuna Christmas is one of
the most popular holiday plays
each year for good reason. The
bizarre characters are memora-
ble and very familiar to anyone
who lives in a small town. There
are also some tender moments in
addition to the toy sack full of
Thomas Elledge and Garrett
Lucas are newscasters Thurston
Wheelis and Arles Struvie. Alex
Gotay,Alyssa Fernandez, Corryn
Medecke and Dylan Gerard are
the very dysfunctional Bumiller
family. Jamie Buford and Spen-

Stove needed
The Central Center is in need
of a gas commercial stove. If
you have one for sale or would
like to donate a stove, please
call Marva Williams at 275-

preparing meals for our senior

Stanton beats Wildcats;

Lake City humbles them

This past week was one that
Baker High, basketball coach
Charles Ruise would like to for-
After last week's dramatic
last-second win over Baldwin,
the Cats came into the week mo-
tivated but apprehensive. They
were facing two good teams who
would answer a lot of questions
about the Cats' playing ability.
Stanton Prep gets consistent
scoring from its guards and Co-
lumbia High is loaded with tal-
ented athletes. The Columbia
game on Friday was one that
Coach Ruise was pointing to as
a yardstick for judging how his
team was progressing.
The answers \\ weren't the ones
Ruise wanted.
They lost a tight game to Stan-
ton and were blown out by Co-
lumbia High in one of the worst
defeats in recent memory.
The 57-51 loss to Stanton on
Nov. 30 was a hard-fought affair.
Stanton held a ten-point phls lead
throughout most of the fourth
quarter, but some timely three-'
point shooting from Thorne
Crowley helped to trim the lead-
near the end.
The Cats and the Blue Devils
battled back and forth in the ear-
ly going. Crowley and Ike Parker
were shooting well in the first
period and it was knotted 10-10
at the end of the first.
Blue Devil guard Eric Yi got
the hot hand in the second, hit-
ting 7 of Stanton's 15 points. The'
Wildcats were struggling from
the field, however and Stanton
pulled out to a 25-19 lead. They
built on the lead in the third pe-
riod, going up 44-28.
Stanton held the Cats at arm's
length until near the end of the
fourth period. In the last three


minutes of the game Crowley
nailed three 3-point shots to
make it interesting at the end.
But despite the pickup in inten-,
sity, the Cats couldn't narrow the
gap any more and fell to defeat.
Crowley led thle way with 16
points. Parker had 14 points and
7 rebounds and Nate Strachen
12. Delano Paige added 7 points
and Jamal Lee a bucket.
The Cats traveled to Lake
City on Friday to take on Colum-
bia High in a much anticipated
matchup. There are a lot of fam-
ily connections between players
on the Tigers and the Wildcats
and it is always a talking point in
the game.
It was the Tigers who were do-
ing both the talking and the hot
shooting from the start on their
way to a 60-29 win. The athletic
Tigers opened the game red hot.
CHS jumped out to a 27-14
lead after the first period, with
12 of those points coming from
outside the three-point line. They
built on their lead by dumping in
'18 second quarter points while
completely huntingg down the
Wildcat offense to just 4 points
to take a 45-18 halftime lead.
The Tigers built on that lead
in the third period, outscoring the
Wildcats 11-5. Neither team did
much offensively in the fourth
period, but by then the damage
was done.
Crowley was the only Cat to
manage double figures with 11
points. Strachen had 5, Parker
4, Blake Rowan and Joe Reed 3
The Wildcats travel to Suwan-
nee on Friday and host Hilliard
on Saturday night. JV plays at 6
pm and varsity at 7:30 pm.

Brittany Hinson sank a bas-
ket at the buzzer to power the
Baker High Wildcats past the
Middleburg Broncos 47-46.
The Cats trailed by a point with
time slipping away. Hinson got a
pass from Deanna Mckenzie and
took the jumpshot as the buzzer
sounded. The shot went in as the
team celebrated the big win.
The win over the Broncos No-
vember 27 was the highlight of a
week that saw the Lady Cats fall
to powerhouse Alachua Santa Fe
and First Coast. The Cats were in
both games but couldn't stop the
Raiders and First Coast's offen-
sive surges.
The Lady Cats battled back
against the Broncos, despite trail-
ing by 13 points at the half. The
game was nip and tuck in the first
period, with BCHS down by a
single point at the end of the first
period. But Middleburg domi-
nated the second period, outscor-
ing BCHS 19-7 and looked as if
they had the game in hand.
BCHS picked up the tempo
and started to chip a%% \a at the
Broncos in the third period. They
harassed Middleburg defensix ely
and closed to w within live points
at the period buzzer.

They continued to press in
the fourth period and came even
with the Broncos. When Middle-
burg scored to go up by one with
seconds to go, it looked as if they
might have sealed the game, but
McKenzie and Hinson's last sec-
ond heroics gave BCHS the win.
Brittany Ruise led the Lady
Cats with 21 points. Hinson had
12, Kara Dupree 5, Caitlin Griffis
4, Michelle Lopez and McKen-
zie 2 points. McKenzie was big
on the boards, pulling down 17
The game against Santa Fe
was not as satisfying. The Raid-
ers took an early lead and built
on it to defeat BCHS 54-34. At
halftime they led 21-13, and then
outscored the Cats by 8 points in
the third period to seal the win.
Hinson led the way with
15 points. Freshman Meagan
O'Steenhad 6 points and 4
blocked shots. Sarah Trawick
had 6, McKenzie 4 and Ruise 3
The Lady Cats started strong
against First Coast, leading 12-8
at the end of the first quarter. But
First Coast led by a 23-18 margin
at the half and steadily built on it
to take a 64-34 win.

Coach Jason Blair was partic-
ularly pleased by Gage Preston,
a seventh grader who trains with
the team. Since Fort White is a
6-12 school, they had an eighth
grader who could wrestle Pres-
ton. Preston won the match 12-

Hinson scored 18 points to
lead the Lady Cats. Griffis had 5
points and 7 blocked shots. Ruise
had 4, Lopez 3 and Osteen and
McKenzie each had a basket.
"I was proud of the fact that the
girls didn't quit in either game,"
said Coach Franklin Griffis. "We
continue to work hard and im-
prove, and hopefully will be able
to finish the first half of the sea-
son with a couple of wins."
The girls will play on Thurs-
day and Friday at home versus

It takes a degree in astro-phys-
ics to figure out the Bowl Cham-
pionship* Series. Physics people
understand Chaos Theory, and as
a college football fan, only Cha-
os Theory explains how teams
are chosen for the top bowls.
The Gator Nation is thrilled by
the way things shook out in the
final weekend of the regular sea-
son. With a 10-point win over the
Arkansas Razorbacks in the SEC
title game and a loss by USC to
cross-town rivals UCLA, the Ga-
tors edged theMichigan Wolver-
ines for the second spot.
Let's review:
T\\o weeks ago, Michigani
lost to #1 Ohio State by 3 points
in Columbus, and leaped Florida
in the polls. Then USC won big
and leaped Michigan and Flori-
da. That left the Gators the odd
men out.
USC only had to beat, UCLA
to go to its third straight title
game. Michigan had to wait and
see, and UF had to beat a very
good Arkansas team. UCLA;
wasn't given a chance to win.
But this is a rivalry game, what
the Brits call a local derby, and
you can't pick them. Look at UFI
FSU. FSU could easily have won
that game.
UCLA won. Florida won.
Michigan. the odds-on favorite
to move into the #2 spot should
the unthinkable happen and the
Bruins beat the Trojans, started
looking over their shoulders.
By mid-afternoon on Sunday,
it was clear that UF and not UM.
would get the nod. The Coaches
and Harris polls jumped Florida
over Michigan for one simple
reason. UF was a conference
champ and UM was the runner-,
up to Ohio State.
The chaos revolves around
the fact that college football is
the only major sport without a
It's simple money. The big
BCS schools don't want to share'
millions of dollars in bowl mon-
ey with the rest of the NCAA.
They would rather live with the
chaos and reap the profits. The
losers are the fans.
Even if they didn't have a
playoff, there would have been a
simple resolution to the UF/UM-
situation. In. soccer, if there is a
situation like UF/UM at the end
of the season, they hold a one
game playoff. Put UM and UF
, together at a neutral site, like
Papa John Stadium in Louisville,
and let them duke it out on the
field. The winner plays Ohio
State..But it's decided by playing
the game.
That's where things like this
should be decided. Not in a com-
puter room.

week's Wildcat Player of the

The 5'8" McKenzie was also
instrumental in securing the win
for the Cats. She was able to pick
out Brittany Hinson for the last,
second, game-winning shot that
beat the Broncos.
Coach Franklin Griffis had
only good things to say about
McKenzie. "She is active on the
court and very aggressive. She
has helped us to win the games
