Will state


seek death


sentence?
The state is holding out its
options on whether to seek the
death penalty for a Glen St.
Mary man charged with the
brutal rape and beating death
of a Yulee teenager in the early
morning hours of June 1.
Brock R. Morris, 31, de-
scribed by a relative of one of
his victims as "a monster," was
indicted June 15 for first-de-
gree murder and sexual battery
with great force in the death of
16-year-old Hope Norman.
Mr. Morris, in county jail
without bond, entered a writ-
ten plea of not guilty in circuit
court this

for July

nKearms of
Brock Morris Gain ethes-
ville, the
chief assistant public defender
for the Eighth Circuit..
State Attorney Bill Cervone
of Gainesville, who was present
at the recent grand jury hear-
ing, said this week Mr. Morris'
criminal history will be scruti-
nized in coming weeks before
a decision is made on whether
to seek capital punishment.
If so, itwill be the first such
case since a defendant was
convicted of killing a Baker
County deputy in 1966. The
death sentence was later com-
muted.
"We've not made that de-
cision and we're still collect-
ing information on his back-
ground," said Mr. Cervone. "I
expect we'll have a preliminary
decision in a month or so."
The "preliminary" aspect of
a decision has to do with tech-
nicalities in case preparation
in capital punishment cases,
said the prosecutor. At the very
least, the state would seek to
put Mr. Morris in prison with
no chance of parole.
Mr. Morris made incrimi-
nating taped statements to
sheriff's investigators that
weekend, and led them to the
shallow grave west of his trail-
er home off Okey Dr. where he
had buried the victim.

'Invasive plants can be



attractive, but a nuisance


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Baker County Horticulture agent Barbara
Smith is walking across an undeveloped lot in
downtown Macclenny. She stops at the foot of
what local residents know as a soap or popcorn
tree and examines one of its limbs filled with
small, round leaves that taper to a point.
"This is a huge one," she observes. "One of
the larger of these trees I've seen."
She separates long fuzzy "tassles" which
hold hundreds of miniscule flowers. Each one
of these tiny buds will become a seed.
"As pretty as it is, this tree has become very
problematic for the state," says Ms. Smith.
The tree is a Chinese tallow, introduced into
the United States from Asia as an ornamental
and potential commercial oil crop plant in the
late 1700s. Benjamin Franklin sent its seeds to
a friend in the then-colony in Georgia with the
accompanying note:
"I also send a few seeds of the Chinese tal-
low, a most useful plant, which I believe will
grow and thrive with you."
The tree is indeed thriving and is now natu-
ralized from North Carolina to Florida and west
into Texas and Arkansas.
Although beautiful, Chinese tallow has be-
come a serious problem in the Florida land-
scape and is threatening to displace native tree
species. It's an opportunistic tree, fast grow-
ing, able to thrive in diverse environments. It


is highly resistant to disease and drought and
the US Geological Survey considers the tree a
threat to southern habitats.
The Chinese tallow tops the list of problem
non-native "invasive" plants in Florida. Several
others that are major problems are cogon grass,
Japanese climbing fern, aquatic hydrilla and
water hyacinth.
Ms. Smith, who recently gave a presentation
on invasive plants in Baker County, hopes to
educate more residents about a problem that ex-
ists literally in their own backyards.
. "Many plants we see in the wild like mimosa
or Brazilian pepper tree are lovely," she said.
"Some people might consider them a nuisance,
but not a threat. A closer look tells a much dif-
ferent story, however."
Ms. Smith's presentation featured photos
she took of invasive plants in the Baker County
area, along with a list of the worst offenders. In
the past, according to Ms. Smith, invasives were
frequently introduced by commercial nurseries
as ornamentals. Most nurseries now operate un-
der prohibitions regarding many of the plants
identified as problematic.
"It's actually against the law for nurseries to
sell certain plants," she said.
In the wild, birds, animals, wind and water
facilitate the spread of invasives. Many human
activities, such as land clearing, the use of road
building and grading equipment and the propel-
lers of boats contribute to invasive spread also.
A primary example is (See page 2)

Commission with an, array of
opinions on a proposed closure
of the College St. railroad clos-

cogon grass, which is spread by
road grading equipment. It is the
worst non-native invasive grass
in Baker County and in Florida.
Highly flammable, it is also
considered one of the ten worst
weeds in the world.
There are many reasons why
invasives have been able to take
such a tenacious hold in Florida's
environment. Successful non-na-
tive plants lack the natural con-
straints of native plant species.
Since they did not evolve in
Florida, the insects, diseases and
animals that eat them are absent
from the equation. Such plants
don't experience their natural
cycles of growth and dormancy
due to seasonal change because
of Florida's extended growing
season.
With no environmental chal-
lenges or stresses, they colonize
freely, often taking over and
transforming an entire ecosys-
tem and forming what is known
as a "mono-culture" where no
other plants exist.
They can alter the bio-diver-
sity of an area to the point that
native, animal species become
threatened when the plants they
depend on for food and habitat
disappear.
Certain types of invasives
also have the distinct disadvan-
tage of creating excess fuel for
wildfire.
The Nature Conservancy con-
siders non-native invasive plants
a huge threat to wildlife habitat,
second only to outright destruc-
tion by development.
The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection's website
reports that "Chinese tallow is
invading thousands of acres of
protected Florida landscapes. If
allowed to continue to spread,
Chinese tallow will out-compete
many wild native tree species.

.THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
June is one of those big mo-
mentous months in family his-
tory. Kelley and I celebrated our
25th wedding anniversary. Also,
this week marked the 50 year
mark for my mother- and father-
in-law.
Kelley and I are beating the
national averages and Carl and
Sara are shattering them. The di-
vorce rate in Florida is a whop-
ping 51%, which ranks the state
eighth in the nation. Nevada is
the divorce capital of the USA
with a 71% flop rate.
Being married this long is
never a breeze, there are plenty
of times Kelley would have
liked to wring my neck. But be-
ing friends as well as lovers and
looming mortgage payments
probably stayed her hand.
I like being married. Some
people might want to make sure
that I hadn't been out in the sun
too long after that statement, but
it's true. I would much prefer to
be married than single.
Of course, to have a success-
ful marriage there are always
pitfalls that have to be navigated.
Men and women don't always
speak the same language. Things
that men say don't have the same
meaning to a woman, and visa
versa.
Since June is the wedding
month, I decided to give a few
examples of man and woman-
speak that both sides have to
understand to make a marriage
work.
The male version is courtesy
of me while some of the wom-
an's statements came from my
sister. I added others.
4 Uh huh This is man-speak.
When a man says "uh huh" to a
woman what it really means
is that the man has absolutely
no idea that the woman is even
speaking to him. A man usually
responds "uh huh" when there
are two minutes left to go in the
fourth quarter and the Jaguars
are on the Titans' 12-yard line. A
woman could be telling him that
his recliner is on fire and will get
"uh huh" in response.
V Five minutes If a woman
uses this phrase when dressing
to go somewhere it means a half
hour. If it is directed at her hus-
band who is watching the Jag-
uars/Titans game in means five
minutes, no more.
V Of course not This is what
a man had better respond any


^"^Ale frd
^"^'f


&u


ofmarriage'
time a woman asks a question
like "Does this make me look
fat?"
V Nothing Men had bet-
ter not be confused. When a
woman says nothing, it means
something. If a guy asks "What's
wrong?" and the woman answers
"Nothing," he had better start
searching his memory hard and
long for what he did to upset the
alignment of the planets in the
heavens or he will be sleeping on
the couch in no time flat.
V Thanks A woman is thank-
ing you. No telling why or how.
Just shut up and say "You're
welcome."
V Sorry One of the most
common words in a man's vo-
cabulary. Uttered often whether
he has done anything to be sorry
about or not.
V Fine A woman's weapon
of mass destruction. Usually ut-
tered to end an argument where
a man has forgotten or chosen
not to say sorry. Spoken between
clenched teeth.
V I love you A genuine term
of endearment spoken by men
and women unless the man
has forgotten a wedding anni-
versary. At that point it is spoken
sheepishly while handing out a
bouquet of roses, candy and jew-
els. A woman may also add the
word but at the end as in: "I love
you but you had better move
those dirty work boots out of the
living room or they are going in
the garbage."
VRight away takes the place
of "uh huh" when a woman does
something to get a man's atten-
tion while watching a sporting
event. Similar to a woman's "five
minutes," it has no resemblance
to real time anyway.
V Go ahead as in "You just
go ahead and go fishing with your
buddies." Only an insane man or
someone with a death wish really
thinks this means go ahead. It re-

KELLEY LANNIGAN
I know plenty of folks who
cannot conceive of eating alone
in a restaurant, but I actually en-
. joy the experience. Company is
fine too, of course, and there are
many occasions that I enjoy the
camaraderie and lively conver-
sation. But what I really like is
to dine leisurely, even if it's just
a sandwich. It's a time to think,
read, make a list of things you
need or want to do, or just relax
and let your mind drift. Letting
my mind drift is how I come up
with my better ideas.
When I was in college, I
knew girls who would not go
to the dining hall if they didn't
have someone to go with them.
If they couldn't find another per-
son to eat with, they simply did
not eat. The prospect of having
to eat alone seemed downright
horrifying to them and ,I never
quite understood that.
I much preferred the idea of
going to the cafeteria for supper,.
where I was much more likely
to bump into someone I knew
anyway and end up sitting with
them, than sulking alone in a
dorm room staring at the wall
while everyone else was at the
cafeteria.
What would make a per-
son so intimidated about eat-
ing alone that they would suffer
hunger pangs, rather than enjoy-
ing a meal and then going about


Four-wheeler activity is harmless


otogra. Dear Editor:
It seems certain residents of
licy. the Blackbottom-Deerfield Cir-
cle neighborhood don't want
children in the area to have any
enjoyment.
We live out in the country
ae where there isn't a lot of recre-
ation for kids. Some of them
con- have four-wheelers and like to
ride around the circle. Every
the time a motor is heard starting up,
um- certain people have to be nosy
and check to see if it is the kids,
may then they run to the phone and
of call the sheriff's department to
y o complain.
lust It's not like the children are
destroying other people's prop-
and erty or the road; it's just the fact
S of they have four-wheelers to ride.
It got so bad at one point that
the the kids stopped riding and went
to driving lawn mowers without
ews- blades attached to have some fun.
right Of course, that also was called in
and the kids had to stop.
aerial These kids are in their neigh-
er's borhood and not out drinking,
doing drugs or riding the streets
neet to cause trouble. They can't have
any type of enjoyment because
ion. of constant complainers. We also
feel the sheriff's department has


more important things to handle
than respond to something that is
harming no one.
These complainers undoubt-
edly think they own the neigh-
borhood when they ride through
and check everyone out, then call
police when someone sneezes.
If they would take care of their


business and keep their noses out
of everyone else's, the neighbor-
hood would be a much better
place to live. God bless them in.

their business? It was rare to be
truly alone on a busy, sometimes
noisy, campus. A few minutes
to yourself to mentally re-group
and grab a bite seemed a wel-
come break to me, not a social
death sentence.
Yet, I have encountered plen-
ty of people over the years who
almost seem ashamed to be eat-
ing alone. It's as if there is some-
thing inherently wrong with the
idea. Is this a general societal
perspective that I've'somehow
escaped from being conditioned
into believing? I don't know.
I've also had the disconcert-
ing experience of having other
people insist I join them if I
happen to be sitting alone in a
restaurant where they are also
dining. Their repeated invita-
tions, which are often loud, can
cross over the line from cordial
to downright harassment, so in-
sistent are they that I join their
party. People at other tables be-
gin to stare.
"Oh, you don't want to sit
alone, now do you? Nobody
should eat alone. That's awful!
This can turn into a most
awkward social moment. Just
try to politely and diplomatically
explain to someone that you are
fine by yourself, that you simply
want to spent some time reading
and that you don't care to join
their group.
I have been forced to say this


alone


(the truth) as a last resort, when
they won't take no for an answer.
I assure you, people look at you
as if you have just given them
a kiss, then informed them you
have leprosy. It almost seems too
much for them to believe. And
throughout the rest of the eve-
ning they give you queer looks
across the restaurant.
Sometimes waitresses con-
tribute to the unease. They ap-
proach the table and say, "Oh,
you're not alone, are you. Well,
that's too bad."
One hostess was so distressed
by my "state" that she repeatedly
stopped at my table throughout
the evening to wring her hands
and lament n) mnistortune.
"Oh, I just can't stand it that
you're here all by yourself!"
I finally figured out that such
people are projecting their own
insecurity onto my situation.
It would be an unhappy way to
live to always be distressed at
the prospect of having to spend

a little time alone with your own
company.
Don't get me wrong. A won-
derful dinner, in a wonder-
ful restaurant with wonderful
friends is one of the better-things
about life. I always look forward
to those times with great relish.
But the other is good too, and for
a few of us out there, sometimes
necessary.
Bon App6tit!

Dear Editor:
As a satisfied parent of one of
the recent VPK (voluntary pre-
kindergarten) graduates, I want
to speak out in support of the
ABC Child Care and Learning
Center.
The grading criteria for VPK
programs was not fully disclosed
in a recent article in the Florida
Times-Union, and that resulted
in an unfair slant against ABC.
The school did not have an entire
school year to teach the curricu-
lum, and was graded only on a
partial year.
ABC opened in October, 2005
and became an official VPK site
in November, 2005. With only
6.5 months to teach the curricu-
lum that other programs had a
full nine months to teach, ABC
was labeled a "failing school,"
It was an "apples and oranges"
comparison.
My son graduated from ABC
last month and is solidly prepared
for kindergarten. As an elemen-
'tary school teacher, I am keenly
aware of the skills for success
in school. My son learned what
he needs to know at ABC, and
more. His teacher Connie Craig
instructed him in academics,
social skills, self-control and re-
spect for authority skills that
are often overlooked and under-
emphasized.
It has been my experience that
without self-discipline, learning
suffers greatly. Behavior man-


agement in the classroom takes
time and energy away from the
teacher and other students who
are there to learn. ABC teaches
kids how to function in a posi-
tive, effective way, and sets the
stage for learning.
Brandi Phillips
(The letter writer, who teaches in Duval
County and lives in Glen St. Mary, is re-
acting to a recent rating by the Floridd
Department of Education that placed
ABC in Macclenny in the sub-par cat-
egory based on performance level with
pre-school children. See related article

2nd in FPA awards


The Baker County Press end-
ed up second in the state both in
the number of awards (10) and
the number of first places (3)
in the 2006 Better Newspaper
competition sponsored by the
Florida Press Association.
The awards were presented
the evening of June 22 during
the final evening of the FPA an-
nual convention held at the Mar-
riott Sawgrass resort in Ponte
Vedra. The newspaper competes
in the weekly category under
7000 circulation.
The Press collected a first
place in website development
- the result of efforts by Jessica
Prevatt and Doug Wilds of Mac-
clenny, owner of bakercountyfl.
com, who assisted with techni-
cal development.
Michael Rinker, who is now
employed as an editor in Utah',
won first places for humorous
commentary and sports feature
story. He also picked up third


places for newspaper promotion
and sports game day story.
Kelley Lannigan placed third
for a photo series in one issue
(Olustee Battle) and religion
writing, and Jim McGauley
third places for best obituary,
business writing and spot news
photo.
Publisher McGauley at the
same meeting was elected vice-
chair of the FPA, which repre-
sents more than 140 weekly and
daily publications. The past year
he was treasurer, and has been a
member of the FPA board of di-
rectors for five years.
The High Springs Herald in
Alachua finished first among
weeklies in that category in the
number of awards. The Navarre
Press in west Florida came
in third. Entries are initially
screened by an FPA committee,
then forwarded to judges both
from journalism schools and
out-of-state associations.


"We're gratified when judges
feel we're worthy of awards,
which we hope signify an ef-
fort by this newspaper to earn
the trust and support readers

ABC pre-K disputes the states rating


BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
A Baker County childcare
center is upset at the state of
Florida's claim that it has done
a poor job of preparing children
for kindergarten.
The state said ABC Child
Care and Learning Center on
South Fifth St. in Macclenny
fell just below the acceptable
level and was "low-performing"
for the 2005-2006 school year.
Florida grades participants in
its Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten
Program on a 300-point scale;
anything below 201 is consid-
ered low-performing, and ABC
checked in at 200. The high-
est-performing school in Baker
County was the Special Bless-
ings School Readiness Center,
which registered a 265.
"I'm so excited," said Special
Blessings director Connie Hol-
lingsworth. "I'm very excited.
Special Blessing's been doing
this for about 16 years, as far as
Pre-K.
"I have wonderful, wonder-
ful, dedicated teachers who do
not receive the amount of pay
that, for the job, they should."
But Brenda Harvey, who runs
ABC, was unhappy with the re-
sults and said Tuesday that the
score did not accurately reflect
the caliber of her institution.
"I am not ashamed of that 200
score," she said.
Ms. Harvey believes that
ABC was not working on a level
playing field with the other pre-
K centers in Baker County. The
VPK program began in August
of 2005, and ABC didn't open
its doors until October of that
year. She says that gap made it
next to impossible for ABC to
reach the state's preferred level
of performance.
"We feel that we've met
[the state] half-way," Ms. Har-
vey said. "We've kind of come
mid-stream into a program. So
we figure that if we scored 200
points in less than five months,
and they scored, the other cen-


ters here in Baker County, from
233 to 265 in nine months, we
feel we really did good coming
into the program halfway."
But even beyond, that, Ms.
Harvey and her daughter Terran
Crawford, an employee at ABC,
say the center's ranking was
surprising. According to the two
women, they were told when
they agreed to enter the VPK
program in October, 2005 that
the first year would be a pilot
program and no scores would be
issued.
"The state didn't even know
how they 'were going to rate
anybody, didn't know their scor-
ing system," Ms. Harvey said.
"They come up with this scor-
ing system and what was going
to be their low point and their
high point June 19, 2007 [last
week]."
Department of Education
spokeswoman Kelsey Lehtomaa
said it was department policy
to not comment on individual
schools. But she did say that the
pre-K centers were told of their
scores on May 13 and had until
May 29 to dispute them.
Ms. Crawford confirms that
ABC- did not dispute the score
when it was received, but only
because, in her words, "we
didn't know if the score was
good or bad then." ABC is op-
timistic about its prospects for

next year, when the state should
release scores for the 2006-2007
school year.
"We've put a lot of time, ef-
fort and money in this," Ms.
Crawford said. "It's going to be
good scores. Nothing to worry
about."
Kathy Davis, a parent who re-
cently saw her son graduate from
ABC, expressed confidence in
the center and said she had rec-
ommended it to other parents.


Ms. Davis, who moved to Baker
County from Jacksonville, said
she was impressed with the cen-
ter's teaching methods.
"It was not judged properly
by any means," she said. "And
my son is ready for kindergar-
ten. [ABC] has helped him tran-
sition from being a mama's boy
to ready to go to school. And
he's looking forward to that."

Missing i

Georgia authorities are look-
ing for a Macclenny man who
went missing last week during a
trip to North Carolina.
Judy Harris told the Baker
County Sheriff's Office June 20
that her brother Robert Wilker-
son, 59, had left for North Caro-
lina along with another brother
James Wilkerson in separate
vehicles on June 13. According

financing

A Macclenny woman de-
frauded her mother to pay for
breast implants, the Baker Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office said June 19.
Penny Raulerson, 59, of St.
George, Ga. came to police
that day and told them she had
received a call from Arrow Fi-
nancial Services, a New York-
based debt collection agency.
Arrow told her she owed $6915
on a credit card account first
opened in June of 2006. The
last payment had been made in
November of that year. Though
the credit card was taken out in
Ms. Raulerson's name, the bill-
ing address belonged to Amanda
Moran, her daughter.
Ms. Moran, 36, came to the
sheriff's annex later that day
and, according to police, admit-
ted to using her mother's name,
date of birth and Social Security
number to get the credit card.
But she said her mother gave
her permission to do so, with the
understanding that Ms. Moran
would pay the bill. According
to police, Ms. Raulerson denied
giving her daughter permission
to use her personal information.
Ms. Moran told police that
she used the card to pay for
breast implants in July, 2006,
and was paying off the credit
card bill until she lost her job.
She was arrested and charged
with credit card fraud.
In other reports, Tampa resi-
dent Benjamin Catlett. told po-
lice that his credit card had been
repeatedly charged from an ad-
dress in Macclenny.
According to Catlett, he
noticed three pizza delivery
charges to a house on Grissholm
St. on the card's account. Mr.
Catlett said his girlfriend had
recently left his house in Tampa
and moved to Macclenny. Two
of the charges were with Dom-
ino's; one for more than $45,
the other for $17. And one $51
delivery was charged with Pizza
Hut. ,* .. .
Deputy James Marker said he
was unable to reach anyone at
the Grissholm St. home.

more ways than one. My child's teacher has a personal con-

ble parking downtown.
Many in the audience, how-
ever, were not as impressed with
the deal struck by the committee
and CSX. Hugh Fish, a Mac-
clenny attorney, expressed con-
cern over the terms of the lease
that would be signed by the city;
the agreement would charge
Macclenny $7500 a year for the
28 feet on the north and south
side of the railroad from 6th St.
to 4th St. But CSX's standard


lease agreements with munici-
palities include a 30-day can-
cellation clause; in other words,
CSX can cancel the lease with
30 days notice.
"I feel like you're giving it
away," Mr. Fish said. "You're
agreeing, if you do this, to close
one of your seven crossings,
you're very limited, in exchange
for the right to use this property
for 31 days. That's it. 31 days
and it's over."
Mr. Fish did not mention it,


Stolen, vandalized and


abandoned
Police are currently inves-
tigating how a red PT Cruiser
came to be abandoned and se-
verely damaged on the side of
Steel Bridge Rd.
Deputy Bill Starling was
called to the scene on the eve-
ning of June 23. There he found
the vehicle with the windshield,
side mirrors, brake lights and
headlight lenses shattered. The
seats and tires were slashed, and
there were dents on the side of
the car. The officer was able to
retrieve shoe prints at the scene.
Deputy Starling says he talk-
ed with Carrie Schuler, owner
of the vehicle, who said she al-
lowed a friend, Michael Word,
to take over payments on the
car. She also told Deputy Star-
ling that Mr. Word had told her
someone had stolen the car and
vandalized it. Mr. Word impli-
cated Daniel Kent, 30, of Mac-
clenny.
When the officer talked with
Mr. Kent, he said he was riding
in another car with Mr. Word
and friend Ashley Wilkes that
evening, and left the PT Cruiser
at his mother's house. Accord-
ing to Mr. Kent, Ms. Wilkes at-
tacked him and forced him out
of the car. When Mr. Kent final-
ly arrived back at his mother's
house, the vehicle was missing.
Mr. Kent denied stealing the car,
and Deputy Starling says his
shoe prints 'didn't match those
found at the scene..._-,
In other reports, police ar-
rested two Sanderson residents
June 20 on charges of domestic
battery after each accused the
other.
David Newell, 61, told police


car found
his girlfriend Jean Wolfe, 41,
repeatedly hit him in the face
as they drove back from a fish-
ing trip. Ms. Wolfe accused Mr.
Newell of hitting her in the eye
without any provocation.
Deputy Michael Crews said
both participants had visible
injuries consistent with their
claims.
George Crawford, 57, of
Sanderson allegedly admit-
,ted to police that he repeatedly
rammed a a car belonging to
Sanderson resident Christina
Fuller on June 22.
Ms. Fuller's car was parked
on West Macclenny Ave. and
had been there for days. A wit-
ness told police that a white
truck with a "Crawford's Pro-
duce" sign had hit Ms. Fuller's
green Chevy three times before
driving away. The sheriff's de-
partment says Mr. Crawford ad-
mitted to ramming Ms. Fuller's
car because he was upset her
car had been parked in the same
place. Deputy John Hardin said
in his report that charges will be
filed against Mr. Crawford.
Police say they will not file
charges against Macclenny resi-
dent Melody Jackson, 21, stem-
ming from an incident where
she was alleged to have slapped
Ashley Amerson at the Baker
County jail.
Ms. Amerson accused Ms.
Jackson of hitting her during an'
argument over who would visit
with an inmate. Ms. Jackson
denied the accusation, and wit-
nesses told Deputy Gavin Sweat
that no attack had occurred and
the officer said no wounds were
visible on Ms. Amerson's face.

but his law office on South 5th
parallels the north railroad right-
of-way.
Some in the audience were
concerned that CSX would one
day have to add in a second rail
line to handle additional traffic,
necessitating the cancellation of
the lease agreement. Cliff Stay-
ton, Director of Public Affairs
and Safety for CSX, attempted
to dismiss the notion.
"One of the things with the
lease, the way that 28 feet on
both sides gives us room in the
event that we would ever need to
to expand with a second track,"
Mr. Stayton said. "It still allows
us room to put that second track
in without triggering the 31-day
cancellation clause, without
breaking the lease. This allows
the city what they required, and
it allows CSX room for expan-
sion. To my knowledge we have
no plans at this time to install a
second main track through Mac-
clenny."

CSX had originally proposed
closing the crossing at 4th St.
But the idea was vetoed by Fire
Chief Buddy Dugger, who said
the fire department needed 4th
St. in order to reach schools.
Calvin Work, one of the own-
ers of Calendars Pizzeria on
College St., said the restaurant
desperately needed parking to
attract additional customers. But
many protested that adequate
parking already existed in the
area.
None of the commissioners
appeared willing to express a
definite position at Tuesday's
public hearing. Phillip Rhoden,
Tommy Johns, Floyd Bennett
and Mayor Gary Dopson all said
they remained undecided after
the two-and-a-half hour meeting
concluded. The city board will
again consider the matter at its
July meeting.
"I don't know how I'm going
to vote," Mr. Johns said. "As my
aunt used to say, I'd say, 'Aunt,
did you sleep good last night?'
And she'd say, 'No, I was wres-
tling with the covers all night.' I
imagine I'll wrestle with this."

Rotary Club-sponsored exchange student takes in the culture during a year in India


Lisa Austill, a 2006
graduate of Bak-
er County High
School, recently returned
from nearly a year of living
and studying abroad in In-
dia.
Sponsored by the Baker
County Rotary Club, the 19-
year-old was chosen to
participate in the Rotary
Youth Exchange pro- y
gram. The local club -
is part of the Rotary's Kell
noihK-.isi Florida dis-
trict and currently holds Lan
the distinction of being Press
named the outstand-
ing exchange district in
Canada and the USA. It
sponsored 20 students in coun-
tries worldwide during 2006-
07.
After completing the writ-
ten application which involved
numerous essay questions and a
lengthy interview process, Ms.
Austill was chosen as a recipi-
ent.
"I couldn't believe I was cho-
sen. I actually didn't open the
notification letter for a couple
days because I thought it was
a notice telling me I was late
sending in my medical history
requirements," she recalls.
During eleven months in
India, Ms. Austill lived with sev-
eral host families, staying a few
months with each. She traveled
to meet other hosts, often spend-
ing just one day with them. She
laughingly recalls her arrival in
the state of Mumbai."
"My first hosts, the Sanghavi
family, met me and brought
along their extended family
members. There were about 15
people greeting me and giv-
ing me hugs. The host brought
brothers, sisters, uncles, cous-
ins, and their wives."
From day one, life was very
different than in the United
States. Ms. Austill was the
only American in the city of
Umbergaon. Since students
in Umbergaon only attended
school through ninth grade,
the Sanghavis decided to relo-
cate to the city of Vapi so their
exchange student could attend
classes with other students clos-
er to her own age. She was late
starting classes because her host
family took her on a trip down
the Daman Ganga River.
According to Ms. Austill, the
people in the region of India
Where she lived speak Hindi
as their native language, but
because of the past British colo-
niial influence, school books are
printed and instruction given in
English.
Children grow up reading,
Writing and understanding both
Hindi and English," says Ms.
Austill. "They speak mostly
Hindi, however."
The diet of native Indians is
very different from that of west-
erners and the northern cuisine
is different from that of the
south. Religious influence plays
a part.
Meat is often not acceptable
and eating eggs is considered
improper among many groups.
Those that follow the Jain reli-
gion don't believe in the cruelty
of killing animals for food, and


le)
ni
Sta


many avoid eating
roots such as pota-
toes because to har-
vest them kills the ;
entire plant.
"There aren't gro-
cery stores like here
in the states, says
Ms. Austill. "To
buy bananas, you
go to a banana ven-
dor. To get
milk, you
purchase
it from a
y milk deliv- .."
ery man. It
igan comes in
plastic bags
and you
must boil
it yourself.
Often it is from buf-
falo. Food is often
sweeter than in the
states.
The best meal
she had was from
a street vendor and
came served on a
banana leaf. It was
an Indian version
of an American "all
you can eat" restau-
rant.
She recalls how
her host family
attempted to make
something western
for her to eat. Yet,
they always put a bit
of sweetener in it.
"Alfredo sauce
doesn't call for
sugar, but they
would prepare it
that way."
As she visited
different cities she
attended Rotary
meetings. One took Lisa Austill d
place on a beach with
a bonfire. She also
participated in events arranged
by the government for all Rotary
exchange students such as cul-
tural festivals.
Ms. Austill. found one of the
most interesting and rewarding
aspects of living abroad to be

experiencing the cultural cus-
toms and celebrations of anoth-
er country. She was particularly
moved by Rakshandan, which
celebrates and strengthens the
relationship between brothers.
and sisters.

Just Right:


"Weddings are very involved
and meaningful to Indian peo-
ple," said Ms. Austill, who
attended two ceremonies while
living in India. Such experienc-
es helped her learn a lot about
the decorative ornaments and
marks worn by Indians, particu-
larly women.
The bindi decoration, which
has become a fashion trend
among western women, is a tra-
ditional decorative mark worn
by Indian women to indicate
that they are married.
Another decoration worn by
Indian women before marriage
is the tika, a metal chain with a
free hanging ornament on one
end. Women part their hair in
the middle and the tika covers
the part with the ornament rest-
ing on the forehead. During the
ceremony the groom removes
the tika and paints the part in red
sindoor powder, a sign that the
bride is now a married woman.
While in her host country,
Ms. Austill often wore tradi-
tional Indian clothing such as
punjabi, a type of trousers that
are gathered at the ankle or just
below the knee; a salwar, which


SThe Easiest Place in the World to Buy a Car or Truck"


is a tunic-style top, and a long
duppatta scarf, usually worn
over each shoulder as a sign of
modesty.
Ms. Austill saw many sig-
nificant sights like the famous
Golden Temple surrounded by
water, the Taj Mahal palace, tea
plantations, and many factories.
Probably her most memorable
experience was. the ten days she
spend in a Buddhist sanctuary
where she received instruction
on meditation and took a tempo-
rary vow of silence.
"You live as the monks live,"
she explained. "There is no talk-
ing."
Ms. Austill says she was very
happy to return home, but she
misses India and her host fami-
lies.
"I do want to go back and per-
haps take my mom to show her
where I lived," she says. "The
Rotary helped make this pos-
sible for me and I will always be
grateful for the experience."
Ms. Austill will give a presen-
tation regarding her exchange
experience to the Baker County
Rotary Club during its weekly
Thursday meeting, July 25, at
noon .at the Macclenny Church
of Christ on Fifth Street.

Nancy Jacobs relaxes in the shallow waters just off the shore at Ocean Pond campground with her yellow lab Daisy on a tem-
perate evening June 26. According to Ms. Jacobs, Daisy was a stray she and her husband took in and trained. "Daisy loves
chasing water," she said. "I fill a plastic cup and throw the water and she leaps into the air trying to bite it. She'll do that until
she drops." The couple, who live in Live Oak, are avid boaters and visit Ocean Pond often with Daisy. "If we aren't in Michigan,
we're here," they said.

Lillian Reynolds,

pre-school retiree
The funeral service for Lillian
Inez McGlashan Reynolds. 80,
of Baldwin was held 11:00 am
on Friday, June 22, 2007 at the
First Baptist Church of Baldwin
with Rev. Chris Drum and Rev.
Gene Burnsed officiating. Inter-
ment followed at Brandy Branch
Cemetery near Bryceville. Mrs.
Reynolds was born June 10, 1927
in Homerville, Georgia, daughter
of Joseph V. McGlashan and the
former Vida Ideal Jolly. She died
June 15, 2007 in Jacksonville
following a brief illness.
A wife, mother and home-
maker for 44 years, she began
a new career in child care and
retired earlier this year from the
First Baptist pre-school due to ill
health after 21 years of the loving
care she gave to all her "babies."
A skilled story teller, she often
said, "I wish I had taken notes
so I could have written a book."
Even at the age of 80, working
on her computer, crossword puz-
zles and reading were some of
her favorite pastimes.
Ms. Reynolds was a Southern
Baptist and read her Bible and de-
votional daily. Being very inde-
pendent and quick to express her
mind, she never met a stranger;
she loved to talk so much that it
was hard to get a word in "edge-
ways" when she got on a roll.
She is survived by daughter,
Lula (Larry) Hill of Baldwin;
Sons, Cary (Linda) Reynolds
and Gary Reynolds of Baldwin,
and Michael (Leta) Reynolds of
Gassville, Ark.; brothers, Jimmy
Von (Sandy) McGlashan of St.
Augustine and James E. (Bet-
ty) McGlashan of Spring City,
Tenn.; grandchildren Kenneth,
Gene, Timmy, Joey, Dale, Mi-
chael, Angela and Monica; 18
great-grandchildren.
Ms. Reynolds was pre-de-
ceased by husband Cecil Eugene
Reynolds; brother Joseph Wil-
liam; sisters Genina Gieger and
Eloise Alligood; grandson Larry
Noel Hill Jr. Special people in
her life were Steve and Christy
Stafford, Les and Judy Manucy,
Norma Francis, Kay Wright,
Revs. Chris Drum and Gene
Bumsed and families.
Prestwood Funeral Home in
Baldwin was in charge of ar-
rangements. In lieu of flowers,
the family suggests donations to
Community Hospice, 4266 Sun-
beam Road, Jacksonville, Florida
in her honor.

Mr. & Ms. Stoutamire

50th anniversary dinner June 29th
Elder Curtis and Flossie (Farmer) Stoutamire will celebrate their
50th wedding anniversary with a dinner among family and friends the
evening of Friday, June 29 at their residence in Margaretta. The couple
wed on that date in 1957 in Baker County.
The couple has eight children: Cheryl of Glen St. Mary, Evelyn of
North Carolina, Curtis Jr. of Mississippi, Ronald of Texas (currently
deployed in Iraq), Margie and John of Alabama, Michael of Lakeland,
Fla. and Dan of Las Vegas.
The event begins at 5:00 pm; all family and friends are invited.


Special thanks
I would like to send a spe-
cial thanks to Harold, Meggy,
Michael and Matt, and all who
helped organize the 1st Annual
Horseshoe Tourney, "Throwing
for Petey" this past Saturday. It
was such a success. Thank you
for remembering Philip.
January 17,2006, when Petey
was taken from us left a void in
life that will never be filled, and
most days are unbearable. When
I think of how blessed my son
was to have known what true
friendship is makes the unbear-
able days bearable. Most go
through life never knowing what
it is like to have friends such as
ya'll.
Thanks to all who attended,
hope to see you at the horseshoe
tourney next year.

New year,neu

It will be nrew set of oppo-
nents this season as the Baker
High Wildcats enter into another
two-year FHSAA schedule. Ev-
ery couple of years the schedule
shifts, bringing in new teams and
dropping others. Some years the
district also realigns, but this year
it's the non-conference teams
that have been changed.
Here's a look at the new
schedule for District 3 3A:
' / The Cats will open on the
road for their first two games,
the first against Union County in
Lake Butler on August 31. The
following eeek the\ travel to,
Starke to take on the Tornadoes
of Bradford County. The game
versus BCHS's traditional rival
is Sept 7.
On Sept. 14 the Wildcats open
at home against Arlington Coun-
try Day. It will be the first time
BCHS has played the Apaches
on the gridrion.
District play opens the fol-
lowing week as the Cats host the
Raines Vikings on Sept. 21. They
will take on Ridgeview at home
on Sept. 28.
; The Andrew Jackson Tigers
will bring the Wildcats to their
Main Street lair on Oct 5. BCHS
will travel 100 miles south on
1-75 to square off against Ocala
Vanguard on Oct. 12.
The road trip will end with a
district game against the Bishop
Kenny Crusaders on Oct. 19.
The Cats come home for their
last district game of the season
against the Suwannee County


Suns at the top


their league

The Jacksonville Suns sit atop
the Southern 'League standings
this week. Their 12-game win-
ning streak recently snapped, but
their baseball has been outstand-
ing. They are on the road most
of this week, but come back to
the Baseball Grounds on Satur-
day for a four-game home stand
against the Mobile Bay Bears.
SMontgomery is keeping up
with the Suns and the two are
at the top of the division. The
Bears are in fourth place in the
division and would like nothing
better than to get back on track
by knocking the Suns out of first
place.
On Saturday, the Suns are
giving away Nolan Ryan action
figures. The Hall of Fame pitcher
once played in Jacksonville.
The Zooperstars will entertain
on Sunday. Under eye black with
the Suns logo on it will also be
given away.
Monday is racing night and on
Tuesday there will be pre-Fourth
of July fireworks.
The first pitch is at 7:05 pm on
Saturday, Monday and Tuesday.
The Sunday game starts at 5:05
pm.


7 schedule

Bulldogs on Oct. 26.
The final game of the sea-
son will be November 9 versus
Hawthorne Junior/Senior High.
This marks the first meeting with
Hawthorne in football.


Duo chosen


for T-U team

A pair of Wildcat baseball
players made it onto the second
squad of the All First Coast team
selected by the Florida Times-"7
Uhioi. Kell\ Davis and Jarrell
Rodgers were both named to the
team.
Davis, a senior, was one of the
team's top hitters. A four-year
standout, he developed into a
slugger and one of the team's top
offensive performers.
Rodgers was the standout on
the mound for Baker High, eas-
ily the team's best pitcher. Coach
John Staples used the junior
hurler in key situations where he
knew that the-Wildcats needed a
win.

Pablo Montoya at the start of the
NASCAR season. With his win
Sunday in a road course at So-
noma, California, the Colombian
began to repay those expecta-
tions.
Montoya won just about ev-
erything there was to win in his
career as a top Formula One
racer. He wanted a new chal-
lenge and got it when he made
the move to NASCAR.
It has been a rough adjustment
for the charismatic star. There are
more differences than similarities
in F-1 racing and stock car rac-
ing. Cars aren't nearly as tightly
packed and don't deal with as
many high-banked ovals. Fl rac-
es are on a lot of road courses.
On Sunday, however, Mon-
toya turned the tables on his new
NASCAR buddies. He was in his
element, racing around a road
course that requires a whole dif-
ferent set of skills.
You wouldn't know it from
where he started on the track.
Montoya had an awful qualifying
and wound up starting at #32. It
was a record for Sonoma, which
hadn't had a driver start farther
than 18 and come back to win.
Montoya set another record
Sunday as the first foreign driver
to win a NASCAR race since


road racing

1974. Canadian Earl Ross was
the only other one.
Montoya slowly but skill-
fully crawled through the pack.
,He used skills that were foreign
to many of the other racers. He
knew how to stretch his gas and
lessen wear on his tires and in the
end it paid off.
There doesn't seem to be an
iota of doubt in anyone's mind
who the first players will be in
the NBA draft. Ohio State's Greg
Oden and Kevin Durant of Texas
are locks to go one and two. Port-
land will likely choose Oden and
Seattle will snap up Durant.
From there on out, it's any-
one's guess. Al Horford, the Ga-
tor center, could go third, fourth
or fifth. Horford, OSU's Mike
Conley and China's Yi Jianlian
are tossups.
Other name players to go in the
first round will be Corey Brewer
and Joakim Noah of Florida, and
Al Thornton of FSU. Brewer and
Noah will easily be top ten picks,
and Thornton could break the top
ten, though is more likely to be
in the 11-15 range.
Will any of those be breakout
stars? It's kind of hard seeing
Oden, Durant, Jianlian and Hor-
ford failing. The same is true for
Corey Brewer and Thornton. The
only question mark is Noah.
But not in the eyes of the
NBA.
