Dies after a collision

with car at wreck scene

A Sanderson man became
Baker County's twelfth traffic
fatality of 2006 when his pickup
struck the rear of a sedan stopped
on SR 125 north of Glen St. Mary
the morning of December 6 at
the scene of an earlier accident
invol\ ing a county deputy.
Gene Rowe, 65, died about
5:00 that afternoon at Shands
Jacksonville, x\here he was air-
lifted 'follow ing the accident
about 7:30,, more than one hour
after the first accident.
Sgt. Thomas Stebbins of the
Florida Highi\aN Patrol said Mr.
Rowe's southbound 1994 Toyota
struck the rear of a 2003 Ford
driven by Marn Wilson. 54. of
Glen. Ms. Wilson received mi-
nor injuries.
Her vehicle and others were
stopped in the southbound lane
about three miles north of Glen
near the scene of the earlier acci-
dent involving Deputy Erik De-
loach of Macclenn), whose 2006
Ford cruiser crossed the center-
line of CR 125 w while southbound
about 6:00. Itsleft front struck
the left front of a 1986 Chevrolet
Camaro driven northbound by
Edward Force, 21, of Glen.
When police arrived on the
scene of the first accident, they
found the carcass of a deer pushed
under the Chevrolet, which had
spun counter-clockx% ise on the
pavement and slid onto the east
shoulder. Mr. Force told the high-
way patrol he had earlier struck a
deer and tied it to the hood of the
Camaro with rope. He was not
seriously injured.
Deputy Deloach, who had
one at-fault accident on record
since he joined the Baker County
sheriff's department in February,
2005, was treated at Fraser Hos-
pital for a small head laceration.
Sgt. Stebbins said the south-
bound deputy cruiser drifted into
the northbound lane and contin-
ued in a straight line after the
collision, also ending up on the

east shoulder. It was dark at the
FHP sent out a request for/
witness statements attempting
to piece together events leading
up to the initial crash, including
whether the deer carcass may
have draped over the front of the
Chevrolet sufficiently to obstruct
One witness who is acquainted
w ith Mr. Force said the Che\ rolet
had only one working headlight
and he saw% the deer on the hood
about ten minutes prior to the ac-
cident. Mr. Force told police he
was tra eling with high beams
"when the collision occurred.
Another wimess told the
sheriff's department he observed
Deputy Deloach speeding, but
FHP apparently discounted that
report because the estimated
speed of both vehicles was put at
50 mph. The limit in that area is

also looking into the possibil-
it) that a bright rising sun may
have impaired Mr. Rowe's over-
all vision as he approached the
stopped traffic.
Lt. Gerald Gonzalez con-
firmed this. week the deputy was
involved in a less serious acci-.
dent about a year ago when his
cruiser struck the rear of another
vehicle on US 90 just east of CR
125 in Glen. A written repriniand
was placed in his personnel file.
as per the department policy.
If he is found by FHP at fault
in last week's accident, he faces
another reprimand and suspen-
sion without pay based on the
circumstances. Third offenses
are treated more harshly, ranging
from suspension to termination.
Sgt. Stebbins placed damage
to. the police car at $22,000; to,
the Chevrolet $900.
With three, weeks remaining
in 2006, Mr. Row e's death brings
the total road fatalities so far up
to three more than in 2005.

Linda Rosenblatt has a
special way of honoring military
veterans in Northeast Florida.
Whenever she can, she uses her
conservation training to clean
and care for their tombstones.
Ms. Rosenblatt, of Glen
St. Mary, is an active member
of the United Daughters of
the Confederacy and the co-
founder and current president
of Gravely Hill Friends, Inc.,
an organization affiliated with
the Jacksonville Department of
Parks and Recreation.
In both capacities she is
involved with researching,
documenting and preserving
area history, especially through
the care and reclamation of
cemeteries where veterans from
the Civil War, WWI, WWII,
Vietnam and Korean Wars are

says. "Often to read the stones,
I needed to clean them."
She learned the approved
cleaning methods by attending
numerous workshops conducted
by organizations such as The
Chicora Foundation.
Chicora is a heritage and
preservation society whose

projects include archeological
and historic research throughout
the southeastern United States.
It's not unusual to see Ms.
Rosenblatt in a Baker County
cemetery with her bucket of
materials and gallon jugs of
filtered water nearby, as she
carefully wraps and soaks a

tial DRI request because there
was no set-aside provision to
help attract high-paying jobs to
Baker County to coincide %with

"I can't go into a cemetery
now and see a veteran's grave
in disarray without stopping to
cut back overgrowth and clean
the stone if necessary," said Ms.
Rosenblatt. "I believe we owe it
to the brave soldiers who have
given their lives for the freedom
of our country."
On this day, she is working
in Cedar Creek Cemetery near
Sanderson at. the gravesite
of Robinson G. Dugger, a
Confederate soldier who lost his
life in the Battle of Olustee.
She developed a special
affinity for the soldier after
studying details of his life
during her research. According
to historical accounts, Robinson
Dugger was buried in a shallow
grave on the battlefield. His
widow, searching for a clue to
his whereabouts, recognized
the ring on his hand protruding
from his grave. She brought
him home, prepared his body
and buried him at Cedar Creek
Ms. Rosenblatt chose this
individual as the 'Soldier
of Honor' for the upcoming
Battle of Olustee re-enactment
scheduled for February.
"He was from Baker County
and his descendants, many of
whom are still in Macclenny,
will be honored in Lake City
during the pre-battle festivities. I
think everyone in Baker County
should know who this man was,"

However, Kelley, head of the THE V
high school English department, is
knee-deep in research papers and ROBER]
semester exams and won't be able
to see through the haze of red ink until, well, Christ-
On the other hand, I am under orders not to touch
them. There's a good reason forthat. Kelley knows
exactly where things are supposed to go. I know
where nothing is supposed to go.
My job is to unpack all the Christmas stuff from
storage and then put them back after the holidays.
While the decorating process is going on, I am sup-
posed to stay out of the way, but be on call in case
something has to go on a really high part of the tree
or the top of the mantle. I'm also needed to hang
garland on the arches between rooms.
Hanging garland is very similar to moving furni-
ture. No matter how carefully you try to place it, it
is never in the right place to suit.
"It's not centered," said Kelley.
"Okay. Which way do I move it?"
"Move it to the left. That's not the left."
"It's my left."
"I'm talking about moving it to my left. Wait! ...
too much. Move it back to the right."
"My right?"
"No, my right. Perfect. Now tape it up."
"Where's the tape?"
"I gave it to you."
"Here it is. It's in my pocket. I've got it."
"You moved it. Move it back to the left."
"Your left?"
It goes on like this from one door to the next.
The garlands wind up being perfect, but I can't tell
my left hand from my right. So the best thing for

"Man," was all he said.
"I didn't put any of your ornaments on it."
A half-hour later, his brother came in. "Hey, who
decorated the tree?"
Same indignant routine. Later that evening, his
sister breezed through on her way home to hei
apartment in Jacksonville.
"You are kidding me. You decorated the tree
without me?"
"Uh, not really."
"Yes you did. I see how it is."
If I ever wondered how the Grinch felt, I now
know. Any other decorating will have to wait. The
kids have decided they will have to put their deco-
rations on the tree before Daddy Grinch does any
more. Kelley will.soon be finished with school and
will put the house to rights. It will look great, as ii
always does when she decorates.
As for me. I'll do what I always do on such oc-

The winter robin invasion


Birds of a feather flock to-
gether, the old saying goes.
On a recent morning when
the temperatures dipped down
toward freezing, I woke to find
my back yard filled with rob-
ins. Their chirps loudly punc-
tuated the air and sounded like
a thousand squeaky toys being
squeezed over and over.
What a racket. Although loud
to the point of being distracting
- they had in fact woken me up
- it was a happy noise and ev-
erywhere from the lawn and pa-
tio to the tops of the trees, rob-
ins flitted, darted, fluttered and
chattered. Those that roosted
did so for only a couple minutes,
puffing their feathers up into a
reddish, thermal balloon. I have
since read that this keeps a rob-
in's body temperature at a con-

stant 104 degrees even in sub-
zero temperatures.
Every few moments, a pair
of robins flew by in tandem in
a dizzying "loop the loop" for-
mation as they playfully chased
each other. One pair buzzed
the top of my head and I had to
duck slightly to keep from col-
liding with them. My cats were
going nuts watching these aerial
I wish I had grapes or raisins
to offer. Robins don't eat seed,
but can be attracted to feeders if
you put out some berries. Fruit
and berries are their typical win-
ter diet. In spring they go for in-
sects and worms.
When the weather warms up
they are one of the birds heard
early in the morning as they
scour lawns for their favorite
snack of earthworms.
They lay up to five eggs and
the blue color of the shells has
long been celebrated by poets
and painters.
I painted a room in my house
this color once and it was the
most restful and calming place

to relax and read. Robin's egg
blue was officially added as a
Crayola crayon color in 1993.
Although once eaten for food,
it has traditionally been thought
unlucky to kill robins or keep
them in captivity. The poet Wil-
liam Blake wrote:
"A robin redbreast in a cage,
puts all Heaven in a rage."
Lots of legends sprang up
about how they received their
red color, which is actually more
of a burnished orange. One story
claims the robin received its red
breast from trying to remove the
thorns from Christ's head at the
Crucifixion. Another portrays
the bird's breast being singed
from flying water down into hell
to relieve the burning sinners.
It's also commonly believed
that seeing robins chirping on
a tree branch is a sign that fair
weather is imminent.
Sure enough, the day after
my robins visited the tempera-
ture climbed into the 70s.
Come back anytime, my fine
feathered friends.

Moving om Glen to

Utah, and greeted by

a driving snowstorm

(People are curious as to what hap-
pened to Michael Rinker, who recently
moved'from Baker County but preferred
to do so without any prior fanfare (save
for a small party at a Jacksonville res-
taurant). His guest column this week
should answer the question: "What hap-
pened to'Mike?")

Aloha from Utah, home of
Mormons, mountains and me.
In case you don't remember
me but really,, who could for-
get? I used to work for this
newspaper as an editor, writer,
photographer and one of the top
delivery boys in North Florida.
But my wife and I moved to
.the Beehive State (so named for
the prevalent hairstyle here) to
work for an animal sanctuary
called Best Friends.
As senior editor for Best
Friends magazine, I'm still in
journalism, but I have to tell you
that working for a non-profit
organization that rescues dogs,
cats, horses, birds and bunnies is
e a whole other, uh, animal.
Before I get to that, though,
s there's this.
After 14 years and one month
living in Florida, we arrived in
e Utah amid a driving snowstorm.
And when I say drivingg." .I
mean me with a death grip on the
steering wheel of a 31-foot RV,
trying to keep it on a snow-cov-
ered road with 35 mile per hour
crosswinds and near-zero visibil-
t ity. But the real challenge was
coming up behind some goober
f puttering along at 60 mph and
trying to pass him on the two-'
lane, winding, climbing, dipping
highway. ("Hey Zeke! The gas
pedal's the one on the right!")
And speaking of cold, did
you know that human excrement
The day after we arrived, the
temperature dropped to 12 de-
grees and we woke up to a frozen
water line and sewer hose (RV,
remember?). As we tried to thaw
s them out, my wife was shaking
r the hose when it snapped (fro-
zen plastic is brittle, honey), and
guess what came tumbling out.
That's right, Poopsickles!
A couple of days later, after
paying five bucks each to shower
V at the local gym- our water heat-
er wasn't working we headed
into our first day at work. Be-
cause I was hired after a series of
phone interviews, it was the first
t time I would meet the founder/
president of Best Friends, the

chief executive officer, the direc-
tor of marketing and the editorial
As soon as I stepped into the
CEO's office, his dog Cinnamon
targeted my crotch like a guided
muzzle. I tried nonchalantly to
extricate his nose (the dog's,
not the CEO's) from between
my legs while maintaining eye
contact and making small talk
with my new boss, who seemed
After five minutes of hand-to-
nose combat, it was time for the
Friday\ editorial meeting in the
president's office. Cinnamon fol-
lowed us in and lay on the floor
next to my chair. He later got up,
went to the door and scratched at
it until a secretary in an adjacent
office got up and let him out.
My next meeting was Mon-
day in the marketing director's
office with media and communi-
ty relations staffers. And his two
dogs. One had a bone he would
take to each of us, expecting the
recipient to throw it across the
office. He'd retrieve it, gnaw on
it a little and take it to the next
person. I tried to make it more
interesting by hiding the bone
when he brought it to me. So I
slid it under my leg one time; up
my sleeve another, then looked
at the dog and held my hands
up like, "Where'd it go?" But

he knew. He stared at me like I
was a moron, so I tossed it across
the office where it hit a desk.and
ricocheted into someone's ankle.
Maybe I am a moron.
Mean while, the other ,dog
scratched, at the door, but the
marketing director didn't have
a secretary to let him out. So the
little guy (the dog, not4the mar-
keting director) walked back to
where everyone was sitting and
took a whiz on the floor.
You can't blame the dog. He
made at least a token effort to let
us know, plus he's 17 years. old. I
don't know about you, but when
I was that age I often relieved
myself in inappropriate places.
Now I'm looking forward to
having a meeting in my wife's
office, where one of the dogs
scoots around the place using just
his front legs because his back
ones don't work. And he wears a
diaper, which pretty much means
he won't pee on the floor.
I wish I could say the same for
Aloha from Utah.

Dear Editor:
There are some thieves who might not be thirsty after stealing the
Pepsi machine from the front of the Taylor voting house and fire sta-
Sometime the night of December 5 or early the next morning it ap-
pears someone backed up a small pickup to the porch and pushed the
fully-stocked drink machine into the back and took off with it.
The machine and another one have been maintained by the volun-
teer firefighters at Station 40 the past ten years for the convenience of
citizens of Taylor. Profits from the machines help purchase Christmas
toys and food baskets for the needy in the area, and also are used to
purchase equipment for the fire station.
It is a shame that some people take advantage of the hard-working
volunteers who give their time and service to the community.
If anyone saw anything or has information regarding this incident,
please contact the sheriff's department.

Middle, heavy classes put

Wildcats over Bradford Co.

The Wildcat wrestling team
got a stiff -test from rival Brad-
ford County, but managed to
come out on top 40-34 Monday
night at the BCHS gym. Brad-
ford controlled many of the light
weight classes, but the middle
and heavier weights belonged to
the Wildcats.
The Cats opened strong with
Timmy Mason and Brittany Dale
winning on forfeit in the 103 and
112 classifications. From then on
the Wildcats struggled. losing the
next five weight classes to the

Tornadoes. Brandon Lucas got
the Wildcats back on track with a
4-0 win over Mark Wininger.
Joshua Trippett kept it going,
pinning Shawn Boyette at 1:53
of the first period. Josh Hodges
had a tough match against Alan
Lin. The match went back and
forth before Hodges turned Lin
for apin in 5:26 of the third peri-
od. David Corona had the quick-
est pin of the night, with a stop
in 1:17 of the first period. Blake
Yarbrough finished the scoring,
forBCHS with a pin.

Boys lose to Suwannee,

beat Hilliard Saturday

Thorne Crowley had a big
week for the Wildcat varsity bas-
ketball team as it split games.
The guard scored 15 against Su-
wannee County and 16 versus
the Hilliard Flashes to lead the
scoring for BCHS.
The Wildcats traveled to Su-
wannee hoping to rebound from
a tough loss to Lake City Co-
lumbia last week, and though
they fell 50-45 to the Bulldogs, it
put them back on track to defeat
Hilliard on Saturday.
Baker High led most of the
way at Live Oak, but a last-min-
utesurge by the Bulldogs in the
fourth quarter gave the hosts the
victory and sent the Cats off for a
quiet bus trip home.
Three-point shots from Kyle
Kennedy and Nate Strachan got
BCHS off.to a good start. The
game started at a relatively slow
pace and the wildcats built to
their lead with baskets from all
five starters. BCHS was up 13-8
at .the end of the period.
Suwannee woke up in the sec-
ond and a pair of three pointers
helped it match the Wildcats bas-
ket for basket. BCHS led 25-20
at the interval.
Suwannee came out deter-
mined and slowly chipped away
at the Wildcat lead in the third
period. Only Crowley and Joe
Reed found the basket that quar-
ter as Suwannee trimmed the
BCHS edge to one point at the
In the fourth period they took
the lead and built on it. Strachan
dumped in a pair and Ike Park-
er contributed all seven of his
points in the period to keep the
Cats close. But in the end, Su-
wannee was determined not to
lose at home.
Crowley had 15 and Strachan
11 points. Parker added 7 and Ja-
mal Lee 5 points.
The Cats reversed the five-
point loss to Suwannee with a
five-point win over Hilliard on
Saturday in the BCHS gym. It
was a back and forth game, with
first Hilliard and then BCHS tak-

ing the lead and losing it. The
lead changed places a number
of times during the game and
both teams pla. ed well enough
to win.
Hilliard got three 3-pointers
from Nathan Carter in the first
period to go up by a 15-14 edge.
The Cats stormed back with all
of their starters contributing to
go up 29-23 at the half.
But with shades of the Suwan-
nee game, Hilliard chipped away
at the lead and narrowed it to two
points at the end of the third pe-
riod. The Wildcats had seen what
had happened on Thursday night
and went basket-for-basket with
Hilliard fouled inf hopes the
Cats would miss from the free
throw stripe, but BCHS nailed
seven of nine free throw shots to
secure the win.
). Crowley led the way with 16
points. Strachan had 11 points

bounds. Kyle Kennedy also had
9 points, all of which came on
three pointers. Tyler Thomas had

Girls sweep three games,

beat Tigers andBroncos

The Lady Wildcat basketball
team had an excellent week, win-
ning three out of three games.
The girls are one game over
the .500 mark and host Yulee at
home this Thursday.
The week started in a slightly.
bizarre fashion. The afternoon of
December 5, the team boarded
the bus for an away match at
Union County. But the Tiger
coach misread his schedule and
also boarded a bus for what he
thought was an away match at
the BCHS gym. The buses must
have passed each other on SR
121 in the opposite direction. An
angry Tiger coach got a hit with,
a forfeit, but will undoubtedly
look more closely at his schedule
in the future.
On Thursday, the Lady Cats
hosted Suwannee County, and a
63-32 trouncing on a cold night,
made the Bulldogs wish they'd
have' stayed at home. Brittany
Hinson tossed in 18 points as
the Wildcats led all the way
The Cats opened up on fire,
running up and do% n the. court
and scoring at \ ill. The3 held a
20-5 edge at the first period buzz-
er and the game was decided for
all intents and purposes. By half-
time the\ were up 39-14.
The Cats took their foot off the
pedal in the second half but con-
tinued to keep up the defensive
pressure. Caitlin Griffis pulled
down 14 rebounds and Deanna
McKenzie 13 as the Cats con-
trolled the defensive and offen-
sive boards. They outscored the
Lady Dogs 11-5 in the third, and
while the teams plaN ed even\ in
the fourth period, the Lady Dogs
had effectively been put away
early in the second period.
Hinson led the Cats followed
by Brittany Ruise with 15 points,,
Destiny de la Pena with 10,
McKenzie with 7 ariand Michelle
Lopez with 5.
On Saturday, the Lady Cats
hosted Middleburg and pounded
the Lady Broncos 53-29. Destiny,

Ex-player, manager

at Bowden induction

When Florida State's leg-
endary coach Bobby Bow den
was inducted into the College
Football Hall of Fame at a New
York City gala on December 5,
Tommy Johns of 1MIacclenn\ was
in the audience a special guest
along with several other mem-
bers of the football team at South
Georgia Junior College during
the 1950s.
Mr. Johns played briefly at
South Georgia in 1956 where he
also ran track, and the following
two years was the football team
manager. It was one, of Coach
Bowden's first coaching posi-
tions in a career that has lasted
more than a half-century.
Coach Bowden, 77, said last

The other high-profile honor-

ee that evening at the famed Wal-
dorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan
was Joe Paterno of Penn State,
whose induction was postponed
because he suffered a broken leg
in a sideline mishap earlier this
"All I can say is what a great
honor it was to be included in
something like this," said Mr.
Johns, whose friendship with
Coach Bowden has survived over
the N ears. Also in attendance was
a foirner Macclenn\ resident \vho
also played tor South Georgia,
Vernon (Pee-Wee) Brinson, who
has prospered in the car business
and now lives in New Orleans
Other members of the Douglas
team that won two state champi-
onships and a co-championship
during Coach Bowden's tenure
were also there for the weekend.,

Notice to readers:
The newspaper often publishes classi-
fied advertising on subjects like work-at-
home, weight loss products, health prod-
ucts. While the newspaper uses reason-
able discretion in deciding on publication-
of such ads, it takes no responsibility as
to the truthfulness of claims. Respondents
should use caution and common sense
before sending any money or making other
commitments based on statements and/or
promises; demand specifics in writing. You
can also call the Federal Trade Commission
at 1-877-FTC-HELP to find out how to spot
fraudulent solicitations. Remember: if it
sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
