'We are the (dual) Champions, my friends'
BY BOB GERARD
Yawn. Big stretch. Yawn.
I'm a little bleary-eyed this morning after staying up last night to
watch the national title game between Florida and Ohio State. The
Gators' 41-14 demolishing of the previously unbeaten Buckeyes gives
the Orange and Blue legions the undisputed college football crown.
The crystal football trophy will go very nicely, thank you, sitting
side by side with the tall, understated wooden trophy for the national
basketball title. It is the first time in NCAA history the same school has
captured both crowns within a 12 month period.
The only thing close would be the NFL and NBA titles the 1985
Chicago Bears and Chicago Bulls brought back to the Second City.
I have to admit I am not terribly surprised at the outcome of the
game. It crossed my mind this could be a Gator blowout, although I
never spoke such blasphemy aloud.
The media have been involved in a coronation of the Buckeyes
since their defeat of the Michigan Wolverines six weeks ago. When
the Gators were mentioned at all, it was that they were going to suffer
the kind of"whupping" the Buckeyes were handed.
However, they play a different style of football in the Midwest. It
is not the same as the high-powered ball played in the SEC. If you can
somehow combine the high octane offense with a potent defense, a
team can be hard to beat, as the Gators proved.
There were a lot of pluses in this game for the Gators, and I'm
most happy for Chris Leak. He was the offensive MVP of the game
and perhaps FINALLY, Gator fans will cut him some slack for not
being Danny Wuerffel (or Tim Tebow). The announcers talked about
Leak's predicament and then mentioned something ironic. They said
if Tebow had been at quarterback the entire season the Gators would
not have been playing for the title.
The biggest thing Leak and the offense did all night long was an-
swering Tony Ginn Jr.'s 93-yard touchdown run on the first play of
the game. Had the Gators gone three and out on their first possession
instead of coming back to tie the game, it could have been a very dif-
In the end, however, as many points as the Gators put up on the
board, it was the defense that won the title. Heisman Trophy winner
Troy Smith completed just 4 of 14 passes for 351 yards. So what do
you think of the Heisman jinx now? You can name that jinx Derrick
Harvey, the defensive MVP.
Plenty of Baker Countians were at the game, but a couple were on
the field. Amy Wells plays woodwinds in the Gator band and Caitlyn
Crews is twirling with the band as a Gatorette. This will certainly be
the season they'll remember for the rest of their lives.
Junk cars, metal litter I-10 entrance after truck overturns...
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Henry Cichoski Jr. and Baker County deputy Sgt. Greg Burnsed survey the metal mess that covered the eastbound entrance ramp to Inter-
state 10 from US 90 at Sanderson the afternoon of January 4 after a load of pressed vehicles headed for the shredder in Baldwin shifted and overturned. Driver Michael J.
Woods, 53, of Lake City said the shifting weight threw both his 1998 Mack tractor and trailer onto their left side, and the vehicle slid 80 feet as its cargo spilled out onto the
pavement of both the entrance and exit ramps. Mr. Woods complained of shoulder pain but refused transport to Fraser Hospital by a rescue unit. Trooper Cichoski charged
him with a load shift infraction and having faulty brake linings. The accident occurred about 2:30. The entrance ramp was blockedfor several hours that evening.

City leans toward widening
and striping ofSo. Boulevard
The City of Macclenny this week appeared willing to widen
the eastern stretch of South Boulevard from 5th St. east to East
Boulevard to ease traffic congestion during peak school hours near
the new PreK/Kindergarten Center.
City Manager Gerald Dopson was authorized following a lengthy
discussion during the city commission meeting the evening of
January 9 to consult with Duval Paving of Jacksonville on the cost
of extending the road up to four feet (2 feet per side). The contractor
was scheduled to repave that portion of Boulevard as part of a
$500,000 resurfacing project begun late last year. The Boulevard
stretch was the only one remaining.
It appeared at least initially the improvements may satisfy
residents who rose up in protest over traffic congestion and parking
on private property following the opening of the county's newest
school in August, 2005.
Two of the organizers of that protest, Brenda Swisher and Danny
k Lamb, were present at this week's meeting opposing the striping of
a repaved Boulevard, fearing it enticed speeders and was an inferior
method to the traffic cones that now direct vehicles in the morning
and afternoon on school days.
South Boulevard in that neighborhood has for years been one-
way east during school hours.
Macclenny commissioners appeared determined to stripe the new
surface, reasoning it will be as or more effective than the cones,
which Mayor Gary Dopson termed "ugly."
Both Mr. Lamb and Ms. Swisher cited a decision last year by
a specially created traffic committee to deploy the cones and put
road striping on the back burner until later. The decision to stripe,
however, is Macclenny's and not the school district's, it was pointed
School Superintendent Paula Barton was on hand with copies
of school board minutes that recall a district plan to declare an

Ms. Swisher, who like Mr.
Lamb lives on Boulevard
in close proximity to school
properties, questioned how the
school district can declare the
issue "dead" when it didn't so
notify the traffic committee.
Relations between the two
spearheads of the protest over
traffic congestion and the school
administration have been chilly
at best since Mr. Lamb in a
school board meeting accused
the district of negligence and
lack of foresight placing the
new school in a residential area
already somewhat congested
with school traffic.
After more than an hour of
give and take on the matter,
the commission leaned toward
widening South Boulevard as a
means of preserving sometimes
crumbling pavement near edges
as vehicles hug the right side of
lanes to avoid oncoming traffic.
A study will come later on
construction of sidewalks, which
might be complicated because
of drainage woes toward to east
end of the street.
Quizzed pointedly by Mayor
Dopson and Commissioner
Vernon Bennett, both Mr. Lamb
and Ms. Swisher after some
dancing around their reasons
for opposing the road striping
said Boulevard at its present
width is too narrow, a position
the city board agreed with
based on its unanimous decision
to seek prices on widening.
Commissioner Tommy Johns
Mr. Lamb also produced
photos of vehicles blocking
private driveways and fire
hydrants during busy pick-up
and drop-off times on school
days. Commissioners indicated
that was more a law enforcement
problem than a reason to not
stripe the road.
In other business during the
three-hour regular session, the
commission passed unanimously

urban development) designation

purchase of the west portion.
Macclenny will still have
considerable sway over details
of construction like setbacks

specific zoning, and the present
plan meets or exceeds existing
ordinance requirements, Mr.
Fish pointed out. The back

Also approved on first reading
was.a re-zoning request from
Todd Ferreira for a residence on
Chip Shot Dr. directly west of
his funeral home in the west city.
Mr. Ferreira told the commission
he will use the structure as
an office and for additional
parking. He mentioned also
plans to acquire more property
in the immediate vicinity to ease
a parking shortage.
The commission on second
hearing nodded final approval
of an ordinance rezoning a
home off 7th St. behind Country

You made a 'baldface gnorantmistake!
Though we didn't see them until this week due to a glitch in our
new email address, The Press received a good number of adverse
comments some a bit nasty over our use of the word,"bald"
instead of "ball" modifying the word python in a December 7
Yes, we know now the species is a "ball python" and we'll
never make that mistake again. Publisher Jim McGauley, who
doesn't know snakes from, shall we say Shinola (?), wrote the
story and copied the error from a police report. So we know now
at least he and one county deputy believed there was such a thing
as a "bald python."
Shame on them.
Amount in error
The statement in last week's
edition regarding $180,000
raised for a Baker County preg-

Women's Services, $54,624 of
the target goal of $150,000 has
been raised to date.
The group seeks $150,000
initially to secure a loca-

clusion that we've got it pretty
good here. In fact, the weather
the last month has pretty much
The average temperature
during the days has been in the
60s- albeit it has gotten chillier
and rainier lately with cloudless
blue skies and light breezes. In
fact, as we walked to'lunch one
day, I mentioned how great the
My buddy agreed and said, "It
is nice. If it wasn't for the wide-
spread death and devastation,
complete lack of infrastructure,
depressed economy and the fact
people are always shooting at
you, I would like to have a time-
So I decided to come up \\ ith
a list of things that are good here
and things that stink.
THINGS THAT STINK: Of
course, portalets, but actually,
they keep these pretty clean, so
even they are not that bad. When
the weather is dry it is a dust
bowl here with a fine, brown
talcum powder on everything.
When it rains, it becomes a mud
hole where the mud is like walk-
ing, through peanut butter. The
mud sticks to your boots un-
til they weigh ten pounds each
and then rocks stick in the mud,
making them even heavier.
It also stinks that we are in
a prison-like environment. As
comfortable as we have it, it still
bothers us a bit when we can
only go so far until we run into a
wall or fence with a guard tower.
The difference is the guards are
looking out instead of in.
It stinks that you can't play
golf with the great weather we've
had. It stinks when you're able
to distinguish between the dif-
ferent weapons being fired-in-
cluding which ones are the good
guys and which ones are the bad
guys -just because you're heard
them fired so often. It stinks that
you have to get dressed and walk
a couple hundred yards to the
shower. It stinks that you can't
be with your family. Having
lived in a touchy-feely environ-
ment my entire life the thing that
may stink most for me is you go
for months without having any
physical contact (i.e. hugs, lit-
eral pats on the back, etc.).
THINGS THATARE GOOD:
We have great food and a group
of pleasant young men, mostly
from Pakistan, India, and Ban-
gladesh, who fix the food, serve
it and clean up after us. We have
almost an unlimited choice of
food: fast food, somewhat home
cooked meals, Indian, Italian,
sandwiches, you name it. And it
really is good.
It's good because we have
ladies from the Philipines who
wash our clothes. You drop off
your laundry and three days lat-
er, go pickit up.
It's good because of the peo-
ple you meet and the way every-
body looks after everybody else.
When I came to 3rd MEDCOM,
I didn't know anyone. The lon-
gest I knew anybody was about
fdir months-'iwhich in Reserve
tinie equals eight days, Now
I have a new group of friends
from all over the country-we
have 37 states and six countries
represented within our unit.
To paraphrase one of my new
buddies, "We give each other a
hand when it's needed, a shoul-
der when it's needed, but most
importantly, space when it's
And it's good because you
get to see first-hand the quality
of people our country has repre-
senting it in the military. It has
to make you proud, from the
lowest ranking guys to the sur-
geons, lawyers and engineers-
including nuclear. I'm in awe of
the sacrifices they make and the
way they conduct themselves.
But it's especially good be-
cause of the support we get from
people back home who send
boxes and letters and who tell
us how much they appreciate
what we are doing. I don't get
enough of this back home. But
I also know that I don't let my
family and friends know how
much I appreciate them either.
There is definitely something to
the saying, "Distance makes the
heart (and this case, Hart) grow

he allegedly attempted to hide
from Deputy John Hardin, who
was called to the area off Black-

reckless and drunk driving.
The officer said he located a
white Pontiac Sunfire described
in the complaint and it was stuck
in a ditch offAsh Road.
Mr. Johnson was nearby ar-
guing with three females, one
of whom identified herself as
Amanda Jarrell, an acquaintance
of the suspect. She said he barged
in the front door of her residence
near the scene and yelled "Don't
let the law get me."
The officer said Mr. Johnson
had a strong odor of alcohol
about him, and initially asked
Deputy Hardin to help him get
the Pontiac out of the ditch.

An Olustee man faces a fel-
ony charge of dealing in stolen
property for allegedly taking a
tailgate and specialized wheel
caps from a 2000 Dodge pickup
that had been left at a Lake City
used car lot on a consignment
The owner of the truck, Jason
'Harrell of Jacksonville, request-
ed police accompany him Janu-
ary 7 to the salvage and junk lot
operated by Michael Deyton,
48, off Forest Road 732 east of
Olustee. He suspected a tailgate
and wheel simulators removed
from his pickup were the same
ones he saw when he went to the
junk yard early that afternoon.
Mr. Harrell was alerted to that
possibility by a son, who while
riding in the woods recently
spotted Mr. Deyton's Dodge
dual axle nearly identical to the
one he left at Easy Street auto
sales in Lake City. A month ago
while returning to Jacksonville
with two sons, Mr. Harrell by
chance noticed the similar truck
turning into the used vehicle lot
off US 90.
That was a day before he
learned the equipment had been
removed from it while it sat on
When Mr. Harrell went back
to the lot accompanied by police
that afternoon he brought his
Dodge, and the tailgateat the
junk yard was an exact match.
The wheel caps were also on the
property, and Mr. Deyton was
cautioned by Deputy Patrick
McGauley to leave the, items in
place until investigators from
Columbia County could inspect
On January 8, investigators
Steve Harvey and Chuck Bran-
nan met with counterparts from
Lake City at the junk yard, and
learned Mr. Deyton's son hid
two wheel simulators in the
The property owner was ar-
rested for having the stolen
items on his property, and be-
cause he tried to hide several of
them from the investigators. Mr.
Deyton initially told the deputy
he purchased the items in Lake
City from a tire store and an in-
dividual he knew only as Mike.
The tailgate, along with wheel
simulators and center wheel caps
were returned to Mr. Harrell.
A security video system may
produce a suspect in the disap-
pearance of more than $700 in
earrings on a display sleeve at
the jewelry counter of the Mac-
clenny Wal-Mart sometime the
morning of January 6.
Store clerk Beverly Hill told
police she inventoried the jewel-
ry about 7:00 that morning, and
about 11:00 am noticed a pair of
earrings on the floor. The jewelry
case was locked and there was
no sign of forced entry, though a
set of counter keys went missing
Store manager Brandon Beck-
enbaugh said store video moni-
tors were not functioning, but
said he would make copies of the
surveillance tape and forward
them to Deputy Mark Hall.
In all, 19 items were deter-
mined to have been on the dis-
In other theft and vandalism
reports, Gregory Barton, 22, of
Macclenny was named a suspect
in the disappearance of $120
stashed under a television at the
residence of Tonya Robinson off
Linda St. in Macclenny.
Ms. Robinson told Deputy
Claude Hurley that Mr. Barton
was a house guest and in the
room when her sister hid $500
cash in a bedroom, and he was
there later on January 3 when
they determined some of it was
missing. When she told Mr. Bar-
ton she was calling police, he
fled the residence.
Inmate Christopher Jones, 27,
of Glen St. Mary was charged
with criminal mischief for de-
stroying a phone in the visita-
tion area of county jail on Janu-
ary 6. Mr. Jones told jail officers
he slammed the phone against a
wall because he was angry.

Girls are trounced by
It was a rough week for the
Lady Wildcats. The girls were
shell-shocked after a pair of loss-
es to Bradford County and Rid-
geview. The losses left Coach
Franklin Griffis shaking his
"We came out a little slug-
gish from the holiday and played
a couple of good teams from
our district and the combination
was not very pretty for us," said
The Lady Cats got their worst
shellacking of the season on
Thursday when they traveled to
Starke to take on Bradford Coun-
ty. As Griffis said, it was not
pretty. The Tornadoes handed the
Wildcats a 73-23 loss.
"They are a very quick and
athletic team and are ranked in
the top 10 in the state and are in
first place in our district," said
The Lady Tornadoes con-
trolled the game from the open-
ing tip. They burst out of the
gates for 28 first period points,
while allowing only 5 from the
Lady Cats. Bradford turned off
the afterburners a little in the sec-
ond period, but led easily at the
Bradford continued to extend
its lead with a lot of pace and
good percentage shots that the
Cat defense couldn't stop. To
their credit, though they were far
behind the Tornadoes, the Cats
didn't give up.
"One thing about these girls,"
said Griffis, "even when we are
not playing particularly well,
they continue to play hard and
they never give up. As a coach,
you can't ask for more than
Brittany Hinson led the Cats
with 12 points. Brittany Ruise
had 8, Kara Dupree 2 and Caitlin
Griffis 1 point.
Ridgeview continued the
rough handling, handing the
Cats a 56-38 loss. Ridgeview
kept BCHS on the back foot for
most of the night with a sticky
defense. "Ridgeview never al-
lowed us to get settled into our
offense and kept us off-balanced
the entire game," said Griffis.
Ridgeview was up 25-15 at
the half and continued to extend
the lead as the game progressed.
Brittany Ruise was the top scorer
for BCHS with 13 points.
The Lady Cats will travel to
Live Oak to take on Suwannee
County on Thursday and will
host West Nassau on Friday.
Both tip offs are at 7:30 pm.
Senior Kyle Kennedy is
this week's Man of the Match.
Kennedy got a season high 17
points against the Middleburg
point total is
15 of the 17
points came J
off of three- I
is the team's KyleKemiedy
specialist and never met a long
range shot that he didn't like.
Like most three-point shooters,
Kennedy isn't discouraged if
a shot doesn't hit and has the
confidence to keep gunning.
When he gets hot, as he did
versus the Broncos, it can have
a devastating effect on the
opposition. Kennedy's shooting
was particularly effective in the
third period of Thursday's game.
Middleburg came out after the
Kennedy's three pointers
allowed the Cats to keep the
Broncos at arm's length in the
game and maintain the lead.
That's why long range
bomber Kyle Kennedy is this
week's Man of the Match.

the Tornadoes and Friday was
no exception. Though BCHS
won the game 54-49, they had
to battle back from a one point
The first half was a back and
forth affair with both teams
evenly matched. This night
Bradford was hot from outside
the arc. They stayed up on the
quick Cats with four three point
It was the third period that
proved the difference for BCHS.
The Wildcats doubled the score
put up by the Tornadoes in the
period. The Cats exploded for 19
points while holding Bradford to
8 points. Ike Parker hit for seven
of his 14 points in the period.
Bradford made a run in the
fourth quarter, but the Wildcats
held them at arm's length for the

BCHS got the tri-fecta on
Saturday night with a 77-46 rout

hung close in the first period but

Wildcats up and they scored 26
points to West Nassau's 16 in
the final stanza to put the game
West Nassau tried to follow
in the fourth period to close the
gap, but they kept fouling the
wrong guy. Blake Rowan got
sent to the free throw stripe and
nailed every opportunity.
Strachen led the way with 14
points. Rowan had his best game
of the season with 11 points. Joe
Reed had 9 points and Doneric
Jefferson 8 points for the Cats.
BCHS hosts Santa Fe, on Jan.
12 and Bradford on the 16th.
The Wildcat basketball team
got off to a great start in 2007
with three wins last week. The
Cats clinched home wins against
Middleburg and West Nassau,
then traveled to Starke for a
big win over rivals Bradford
The Cats were on fire from
outside the three-point stripe on
Thursday as they cruised to a 74-
56 victory over the Middleburg
Broncos in the BCHS gym. Kyle
Kennedy hit five long range
shots. Fifteen of Kennedy's
game high 17 points came from
outside the three-point arc.
The Wildcats were faster
than the Broncos and the speed
definitely showed in the first
quarter. The Cats ran over,
around and through the Broncos,
tossing in 20 points to the 11 the
Broncos scored. The Cats didn't
let up an iota in the second
period, dropping 20 more points
to take a 40-25 lead into the
During the first half, the
Wildcats were nailing long range
bombs from left and right. They
hit five three pointers during the
first half of play, and wound up
with nine for the game.
The tempo slowed slightly
in the third period, allowing
the Broncos to stay even with
BCHS, but they were never able
to close the distance. Whenever
they got close, Kennedy would
hit another long range bucket to
widen the gap.
Thore Crowley had 16
points and 6 steals that night;
Nate Strachen had 12 points
and 6 steals; Logan Price had 8
points and Delano Paige 7 points
and 6 rebounds.
The Wildcats knew they
would have a tough time when
they boarded the bus for Starke.
