Gets two life sentences


For rape,


murder of


Yulee teen

Two weeks after the pros-
ecution said it would seek
the death penalty for Brock
R. Morris for the June 1 rape
and murder of a Yulee teen, he
pleaded guilty in circuit court
in return for two consecutive
life sentences. ,
Mr. Morris, of Glen St.
Mary, appeared during Mon-
day morning's regular docket
as a surprise entry and apolo-
gized to the family of 16-year-
old Hope Norman, whose bat-
tered body was found the next
day in a shallow grave about
300 yards from the accused's
mobile home off Okey Dr. He
showed little emotion during
statements by his public de-
fenders, prosecutors and mem-
bers of the victim's family.
By the time the former nurs-
ery worker was led chained
and shuffling from the second
floor courtroom, he wept.
Earlier, chief assistant pub-
lic defender John Kearns of
Gainesville told Judge Phyllis
Rosier that Mr. Morris grew up
in, a troubled environment, re-.
moved by the state from a dys-
functional home as a youngster
and raised "in foster care and
other adverse environments
before dropping out of school
in the fifth grade at age 16.
While the publicly-funded
counsel argued such facts did
not reduce the seriousness of
the crimes he committed late
on May 31 or early on June
1, he stressed that Mr. Mor-
ris' background coupled with
a low intelligence level and
the influence of drugs and al-
cohol combined for the lethal
mixture that led him to beat or
strangle Ms. Norman to death
after he raped her.
The defendant, 32, has had
two prior stints in state prison
for a total of 27 months, and his
arrest record dating back to ju-
venile age includes one violent
crime, aggravated child abuse,
and a host of others including
auto theft, burglary, theft and
soliciting prostitution.
The murder occurred after

The Glen St. Mary Town
Council in a workshop the eve-
ning of August 27 indicated it
does not want new homes to
be any less than 1400 square
feet, but signaled that mini-
mum could include garages
and porches.
The five-member board,
meeting for, a budget work-
shop, also said it doesn't want
any more mobile homes inside
town limits at all.
The proviso was forward-
ed the following day to town
attorney Joel Foreman and
Tony Robbins, who consults on
planning and zoning. They are


expected to deliver their takes
on the proposal at the council's-
September meeting.
The policy then will be pre-
sented as an amendment to the
Glen zoning code, and adopted
only after public hearings.
"The council is saying
we don't want 'little boxes'
or mobile homes in Glen St.
Mary, declared Mayor Juanice
Padgett on Tuesday.
The mayor grudgingly sign-
ed off last month on a 1050
square foot plan, one of three
sought by contractor Billy
Dugard on a comer lot off
(See page 2)


Brock Morris at sentencing with defense attorneys Mr. Kearns and Julie Johnson


the victim was left alone in the
trailer with Mr. Morris by her
mother, 36-year-old Betty, and
Carlin Mobley, 48, of Sander-
son. Mr. Morris' wife Amanda,
31, had also been there earlier
that evening but left with her
children after she and the de-
fendant argued because he was
flirting with the victim.
The victim's mother was
not in the courtroom for the
plea late that morning, but was
in the first-floor office of the
state attorney where she spent
most of her time.crying. Betty
Norman and the victim's father
are estranged, and he was not
at the courthouse Monday.
Mrs. Norman's statement
was read by Ann Haynes, a
victim advocate for the Eighth
Judicial Circuit.


"Since that day (June 1) my
life has been upsidedown. I
*can't sleep or eat, and all I do
is cry and think about her," the
statement read in part.
Two other family members,
the victim's grandmother Sally
Hires and aunt Nancy Taylor,
addressed the court with tear-
ful statements that echoed how
Hope Norman's murder has
crushed their lives. Mrs. Hires,
who walks haltingly with the
aid of a walker, appeared sev-
eral times to be near-collapse
both in courtroom and later in
an outside hallway.
State Attorney William Cer-
vone told Judge Rosier the
Noiman family was agreeable
to the plea allowing Mr. Morris
to escape the death penalty. It
saves them the agony of a trial,


and if a judge and jury ordered
capital punishment, the likeli-
hood of years and perhaps de-
cades of appeals and delays.
"The system would bounce
them around like a yo-yo,"
declared Mr. Cervone, the cir-
cuit's chief prosecutor.
Earlier, assistant state at-
torney Mel Bessinger told the
court the state was prepared to
prove that Mr. Morris commit-
ted the crimes that night in an
enraged and intoxicated state,
then dragged Ms. Norman's
body through fields and over
two fences to the area on the
D&D Dairy where he led po-
lice on June 2.

'divided' dialysis clinic


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Fresenius Medical Care, an
international dialysis company
with 1,500 outpatient clinics
in the United States, has taken
over ownership and manage-
ment of the Macclenny dialysis
clinic located at Stansell and
Third Sts. near Fraser Hospi-
tal.
Originally a joint project
between Physicians Renal
Care and Nephrology Group
of North Florida, work on the
4,712 foot clinic, begun in
March of 2006, was suspended
shortly thereafter.
Affordable Structures, a
modular building contractor
from Brandon Fla., was unable
to finish construction of the
clinic and withdrew from the
project, citing financial diffi-
culties.
RSC & Associates,a Gaines-


ville architectural firm that has
contracted with Fresenius for
over 20 years, will be respon-
sible for the redesign and com-
pletion of construction.
"The Macclenny clinic
should be ready for occupation
in January 2008," said RSC
project manager Roy Cribb.
"The Fresenius mission is all
about customer service and
satisfaction and this clinic will
be state of the art."
According to Mr. Cribb, the
original clinic would not have
been up to the level of care
planned by Fresenius and would
have been more along the lines
of a "Doc in the Box."
The reception area is being
redesigned with patient visibil-
ity and comfort in mind and
traffic flow should be optimal.
Patient stations will feature
bedside television sets to help
make the hours spent during


he joys ofback-to-school trffic...
South Boulevard school traffic spills onto Fifth Street as parents line up to pick
up their children from the PreK/Kindergarten Center. An increase in traffic along
Fifth due to the Wat-Mart Supercenter coupled with the start of a new school year
resulted in the all-too-familiar logjam of cars, trucks and school buses with conges-
tion peaking around 2:30 pm on school days.

dialysis more pleasant.
"One thing we had to cor-
rect was the height of the
building's foundation," said
Mr. Cribb. "The height was
potentially problematic and is
being lowered by four feet to
make access and egress easier
for patients."


Another feature being add-
ed is a hook-up for a tempo-
rary generator in the event of
extended power failure. The
building's exterior will also be
totally renovated.
"We've had a slight delay be-
cause of heavy rains at another
project, but will be on track


with the Macclenny clinic very
soon," said Mr. Cribb. "People
are anxious for the clinic to be
complete. Lots of folks have
stopped at 'the construction
sight when I've been there to
ask about its status. There is a
lot of community interest."

absent of a viable ordinance,
the town is powerless to reject
building permit applications on
the remaining two.
Mr. Dugard said in late July
he would sue Glen'St. Mary if
the permit was not forthcom-
ing, though he has no particular
objection to a higher minimum
house size.
Mr. Foreman at the town's
August meeting presented a

In other business, the coun-

Padgett's proposed 2008 budget
set for adoption in September.
Mostly due to adjustments
related to installation of a water

compared to $243,528 in an
amended budget for the current
year.
The major reduction is due to

ment the previous day when the
mother returned to the Morris
trailer and she was gone. The
accused initially denied knowl-
edge of her whereabouts, but
soon became the focus of ques-
tioning and an investigation
when police learned of his past
and the fact that he had been left
alone with her that night.
In a subsequent interview, the
defendant allegedly admitted
the crimes, and said he was an-
gry at Ms. Norman because she
refused his sexual advances.
More recently, Mr. Morris
said he came back to the trailer
that night and found his wife
straddling the victim and chok-
ing her. Two weeks ago, he took
a lie detector test, and that ver-
sion of the events collapsed.
In the weeks and months since
early June, authorities have been
aware of an undercurrent of re-
sentment that the elder Ms. Nor-
man escaped prosecution for
leaving her teen daughter at the
trailer. She claimed she and Mr.
Mobley went to purchase ciga-
rettes.
They contend a charge like
child endangerment would be


difficult to prove since there's no
evidence the mother' was aware
of Mr. Morris' criminal past.
"She got a sentence worse
than any judge could have given
her," declared one court official
this week who preferred not to
be identified. "She'll live the rest
of her life knowing her careless-
ness and lack of judgement led
directly to her daughter's death.
That's not something any nor-
mal person would want to live
with."
A grand jury in July indicted
Mr. Morris, and this week's plea
leaves one other indicted murder
defendant in custody awaiting
trial for killing his girlfriend the
morning of October 16,2006.
Bobbie Dressel, then 29, of
Middleburg was indicted for
first-degree murder in the death
of Cynthia Below at south Mac-
clenny trailer park. He also fac-
es an attempted murder charge
for shooting and wounding the
victim's stepfather at the same
address.
At the time, Mr. Dressel was
under court order to stay away
from Ms. Below, and had been
jailed three times due to past
threats.

nioui- As I sit here looking at the pictures from
lubmit- this morning, wallowing in self pity listen-
nt. It is ing to Alison Krauss sing Baby Mine from
otogra- the Disney movie Dumbo and tears running
down my face, I don't know what to do next.
y It's my only child's first day of school. I'm
sure to many this sounds trivial, but many
mothers can sympathize.
I vowed I was not going to get upset un-
til I saw that little head standing by the bed
'shaking me (after 5 hours of sleep) and plead-
ing, "Please get up so we can get ready for
now: big kids' school." I would have loved noth-
th ing more than to roll over and go back five
the and a half years, when the wake up call was a
umr- cry for a food and a diaper change. But, those
days are gone, to be relived through'pictures,
may videos and memories.
So, up we go to cook breakfast. Scrambled
y of eggs (the way Granny makes them), a brief
lust argument over whether to use water or milk
in the eggs (Landon was right, it is water) and
and chocolate milk. Then while he brushes his

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD

I'm worried about China.
I'm not worried about poison-
ous lead paint-covered Barbie
dolls or radioactive Elmos. Okay,
maybe I am a little worried about
those things.
But what I'm really worried
about are the 2 billion Chinese
who don't seem to be the least
bit affected by wheat glutin and
,mercury-laden fish. What I want
to know is why?
Why do the Chinese, who live,
in one of the world's most pol-
luted countries, continue to be
fruitful and multiply? I mean, re-
ally.
Here's a country where all the
stuff we've tried to get rid of for
forty years is embraced. They
paint their houses with lead paint
that is supposed to leave inhabit-
ants blithering idiots.
They smoke unfiltered ciga-
rettes like they are going out
of style. Ever wonder why the
big tobacco companies didn't
balk when they had to pay huge
payoffs in the lung cancer suits
brought against them by Florida
and other states?
They discovered China, and
tripled their advertising budget
in Beijing and all across China.
Now it's a nation of chain smok-
ers.
They eat fish with mercury
levels so high I'm surprised Chi-
nese can't tell you the exact tem-
perature by taking off their shirts
and looking at their belly but-
tons. They've got so much mer-
cury in them I bet a red line runs
up from their belly buttons like a
thermometer on hot days.

Drunk, refuses to surrender


The sheriff's department ar-
rested a Glen St. Mary man on a
charge of disorderly intoxication
after he allegedly repeatedly re-
fused a deputy's order to surren-
der after a fight in Macclenny.
Deputy Michael Crews was
dispatched to Mac's Liquor on
West Macclenny Ave. August
26 after police received word of
a fight. By the time the officer
arrived at Mac's the fight was
over, but several people, who
Deputy Crews said were drunk,
were loitering in the parking lot.
At that point, the officer said, he
saw Robert Brown, 39, stumble
over to his car and try to drive
away.
The deputy said Mr. Brown
was bleeding from his nose and


Defendant

said'high'at


sentencing
A defendant may have to be
re-sentenced later because au-
thorities say he was under the
influence of drugs when he ap-
peared in circuit court the morn-
ing of August 27 to be sentenced
for a violation of probation.
Michael Baker, 22, was deter-
mined to be high when he was
brought back to county jail to
begin serving nearly a year.for
violating probation on burglary
and grand theft offenses from
2006. He was given a two-year
probation term in March of this
year, and the next month was
arrested near Baldwin for do-.
ing 109 mph on US 301. Duval
County authorities charged him
with reckless driving.
It will be up to Circuit Judge
Phyllis Rosier whether to re-call
Mr. Baker for another sentenc-
ing hearing. Defendants are rou-
tinely asked if they are under
the influence of drugs or alcohol
when they enter pleas, and Mr.
Baker this week answered in the
negative.
In other cases this week, John
L. Brown, 32, drew an 18-month
term in state prison in return for
a no contest plea to two counts
of grand theft and burglary.
Mr. Brown was working at a
northwest Macclenny residence
as a contractor employee when
he took $700 in coins in May of
this year. His prior arrest record
includes a DUI, battery and as-
sault.
Machel Givens pleaded no
contest to battery of a law en-
forcement officer and drew a
six-month term in county jail.


mouth and cursing at others in
the parking lot. Mr. Brown start-
ed to drive away and allegedly
refused to heed Deputy Crews'
orders to stop. Eventually the
deputy was able to convince Mr.
Brown to stop by threatening
him with a taser shot. It was then
that Brown was arrested.
In other incidents, Deputy
Patrick McGauley arrested a,
Mexican man living in Sander-
son for drunk driving the morn-
ing July 26 after he allegedly
attempted to blow into the dep-
uty's pen.
The officer says in his report
that he saw Arturo Merino-Nar-
ciso, 36, parked on Smokey Rd.
between US 90 and the railroad
tracks. According to the offi-
cer, the 1995 Plymouth van re-
mained still in the northbound
lane of Smokey Rd. for about
one minute. When the officer
approached Mr. Merino-Narci-
so's car, he saw that the man had
the car in drive and his foot on
the brake..
Deputy McGauley said the
man appeared to be intoxicated
with dilated eyes. He also saw
an open container of beer in the
car. According to the officer, Mr.
Merino-Narciso spoke only bro--
ken English and had trouble re-
sponding to his questions.
The deputy also noted the
driver had trouble-standing up
when he exited the van, and he
agreed to submit to field sobri-
ety tests. When the officer at-
tempted to move his pen in front
of Mr. Merino-Narciso's eyes to


see if they followed, the man in-
stead attempted to blow into the
pen, evidently thinking it was a
breathalyzer. According to Dep-
uty McGauley, the same thing
happened one more time.
The report notes that when
Mr. Merino-Narciso took a real
breath test at county jail, he reg-
istered a blood alcohol level of
.206 far above that consid-
ered drunk.
Police are investigating
Glen St. Mary resident Mitchell
Canaday's claim that someone
shattered the window on his ex-
cavator overnight on August 22.
Mr. Canaday, who owns a con-
struction company, told Deputy
John Hardin the excavator was
at his home on Glen Farms Rd.
Deputy Hardin found tire
tracks from an ATV leading
from Mr. Canaday's property
and going in the direction of
Bob Burnsed Rd.
Police are also looking into
Macclenny resident Cortney
Clevenger's claim that some-
one keyed her 1999 Honda Ac-
cord on August 26. Deputy Greg
Burnsed said he noticed deep
scratch marks on the driver's
side door, consistent with a car
key.
Ms. Clevenger listed as a pos-
sible suspect a female who she
claims threatened her at a party
the previous night.

Glen man tasered, arrested for officer battery


afier party-related confrontation early Sunday


A Glen St. Mary man faces
twin charges of battery of a
county deputy and resisting ar-
rest following an incident early
August 26 outside his residence
off Fred'Taylor Rd.
Deputy Gavin Sweat said he
shot a Taser charge into the torso
of Christopher B. Crews, 43, be-
fore he and Deputy Garrett Ben-
nett subdued him following a
verbal and physical exchange.
Deputy Sweat had an earlier
encounter with Mr. Crews near
Glen Farms Rd. when officers
were investigating a party in a
nearby wooded area and reports
of juvenile-age drinking.
Mr. Crews, whose son was
allegedly one of the revelers,
drove away after refusing to
give the officer his address, tell-
ing Deputy Sweat it was "none
of your business."
Later, after an estimated doz-
en of the youths were transported
to county jail, Deputy Sweat and
Deputy Garrett Bennett went to
Mr. Crews' residence looking
for other juveniles, including
Mr. Crews' son, who may have
gone there.


Deputy Sweat inquired as
to why Mr. Crews abruptly
drove off earlier, and he denied
"speeding away," calling the of-
ficer a [obscenity] liar." The of-
ficer said Mr. Crews got within a
foot of him "with his right hand
inches from my face" saying the
deputies had no right to threaten
him.
Mr. Crews then allegedly
shoved Deputy Bennett when he
intervened, then pushed away as
the officers attempted to hand-
cuff him. Deputy Bennett said
he struck Mr. Crews in the face,
and when he continued to resist
being handcuffed, Deputy Sweat
fired the Taser charge.
Deputy Bennett's report said
they had to threaten Mr. Crews'
girlfriend Amanda Ray, 29, with
arrest when she attempted to in-
terfere with the arrest.
Mr. Crews was released from
jail in a matter of hours after the
incident just after 1:00 am.
Sheriff Joey Dobson this
week said the department will
increase patrols to curb weekend
parties like the one last weekend
that often draw a good number

Circulation is Everything

If circulation was merely the act of mailing a publication to everyone
free of charge whether they want it or not that would be easy.

It's a bit more difficult to produce a quality publication and put it out there for sale.
It has to be professionally prepared with information your readers want and need
information they are willing to pay for week after week. That way your readers make
the decision.

It takes a professional staff dedicated to putting out that publication each week, know-
ing readers deserve to get something for their money. No other publication in Baker
County approaches our paid circulation numbers.


We do it differently. We earn your support.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday August 30, 2007 Page 6


Statues,

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press "', .,'"
In the last nine months the
Macclenny Fire Department
has been making a series of im-
provements to its downtown sta-
tion located on U.S. 90.
The. fire fighters painted the
building a bright terra-cotta color
to spruce it up prior to the 2006
Christmas parade. A few months
later, the former Bennett's Tire
and Fish Welding, which stood
on adjacent property purchased
by the city for future expansion
of the fire department, was razed
and cleared.
Unfortunately, large semi-
trucks that constantly rumble
through the town began using
the open space to make U-turns,
swiftly adding to the deteriora-
tion of the property.
When Chief Buddy Dugger
appealed to city hall for help
to improve the appearance of
the property, he was teamed up
with Lin Adams, former owner
of A-Muse Cafe, who has been
working with the downtown re-
vitalization committee.
"When I met with Ms. Ad-
ams, 1 simply thought to ask for
a few of the planters of orna-
mental plants she had been plac-
ing downtown and maybe deter
the trucks from busting up the
lot," said Chief Dugger. "I was
*excited to learn she had bigger
ideas than that."
Planters of ornamental flow-
ers were brought in to form a
barrier along two sides of the lot
and shrubs were planted near the
station along with a bed of flow-
ers.
Ms: Adams then proposed a
small rock garden in the center
and also installing statuary with
a fire-fighter theme.
Landscaping rock was donat-
ed by Burger King and the City
of Macclenny funded the pur-
chase of two fire-fighter statues.
One statue depicts a fire
fighter in full uniform carrying
a small child to safety. The other
represents the international em-
blem of fire fighters, a modified
Maltese cross that includes other
symbols significant to fire fight-
ing such as ladders, a helmet, ax
and water hydrant. A smaller-
scale fire-fighter stands near the
emblem, holding a hose.
According to Chief Dugger,


the lot has been designated for
public parking and is undergo-
ing repairs. It will be striped and
an entrance and exit created for
traffic. Water and electrical lines
will be installed, as will a spigot
and outlet at the center garden.
The lot will be available for
any city-approved outdoor func-


tion and vendors will have a per-
fect place to set up during the
Christmas parade.
"It's become a point of pride
for my men here at the station,"
said the chief. "They have been
on me hard to get a pole installed
so we can get our American flag
up."


Chief Dugger credits Ms. Ad-
ams with the vision and initia-
tive to improve the property.
"She's a go-getter who really
gets the job done. I really admire
her for what she's done for our
station and the downtown area,"
he said.

She spruced up heryardto a palette ofcolor
When Christine. Potter moved to her home on Fourth St. and Minnesota in Mac-
clenny, the stark yard was an invitation, and she got to work. The result is a palette
fidl of color. She preferred elevating her garden to pots for extra effect and ease oj
care, and filled the pots with crocus, caladiums of all colors, and begonias, to name
a few. Both the front and back yard are punctuated by a very large and old date
palm that arches gracefully as it reaches for sun. Add the many azaleas, hydrangea,
and hibiscus and the result is color all year. Here, she enjoys the day with great-
grandson Chase Crews. For more information on Yard of the Month, or the Garden
Club of Baker County, please contact 259-6064.

Disputed attack leads to arrest


Police arrested a Macclenny
resident and said charges would
be filed against her husband
stemming from a disputed do-
mestic violence incident outside
the Country Club Lounge Au-
gust 26.
Stevie Gibson, 28, told Depu-
ty Gavin Sweat at her residence
that her husband, David Gibson,
38, had beat her outside the bar
after she refused to have sex
with other customers. The dep-
uty said in his report that Ms.
Gibson appeared to be drunk,
and she admitted to hitting her
husband with a metal dolphin
when they returned home.
For his part, Mr. Gibson said
his wife had become hostile
after he confronted her about
having sex with someone in the
bar's bathroom. He confirmed
that his wife had hit him with a
metal dolphin and also claimed
she threw a beer bottle at him.
Witness Richard Ellis told
Deputy Sweat that Mr. Gibson
never hit his wife. Due to con-
flicting statements, Ms. Gibson
was arrested. A criminal com-
plaint was made against Mr.
Gibson.
In other incidents, Mac-
clenny resident Geffery Church
told police August 26 that two
women, Chazatee Moore, 19,
and Tiara Robertson, 18, hit him
in the face with a metal object.
According to Mr. Church,
he and friend Tarus Wilson had
stopped at a "store" operated
by Tim Paige on Grissholm St.
when Ms. Moore walked over to
their car and began hitting him
with the metal object. Ms. Rob-
ertson allegedly hit him in the
back of the head.
Mr. Wilson was able to pull
the two women off Mr. Church.
Deputy Jeremy Moran said nei-
ther could be located. Charges
will be filed through the state
attorney's office.


*Glen St. Mary resident Me-
lissa Branch accused her ex-
boyfriend Andrew Perry, 20,
who lives in Georgia, of leaving
threatening phone calls on her
voice mail. According to Ms.
Branch, Mr. Perry came by her
work site and threatened her
there. ,


Deputy Jeffrey Dawson lis-
tened to one of the messages
and said Mr. Perry demanded
that his ex-girlfriend re-pay him
some money she owed. Police
were unable to contact Mr. Perry
at the time of the report, and a
sworn complaint was filed with
the state attorney's office.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday August 30, 2007 Page 7


Retrieves 1824 newspaper


from trash pile in a pickup


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
As the old saying goes: One
man's junk is another man's
treasure. You never know where
buried treasure will turn up, and
for Daryll Starling, a chance en-
counter with a pick up truck last
week yielded an unusual discov-
ery.
Mr. Starling, who
resides in Cuyler, was
outside in his yard
speaking to a man re-
garding some plumb-
ing work. The bed of :
the man's truck was
loaded down with
trash and debris.
As the two talked,
something caught Mr.
Starling's eye. It was
the edge of a folded
document printed with
old- fashioned look-
ing type. Curious, he
reached over and start-
ing pulling it free.
"What's this?" he
asked, shaking off the
dust.
The man didn't
know anything about
the refuse in his truck,
nor did he care. He
was simply hauling "
it off for disposal. He
offered the old paper
to Mr. Starling in ex-
change for a cold beer.
Mr. Starling thought
the paper looked inter-
esting and decided to
go for it. He got his
visitor a beer, stuck
the paper on the dash-
board of his own vehi-
cle and continued talk-
ing about the plumbing
work to be done.
"I didn't know what
I had," he admitted." I
sort of forgot about it
and rode around with
it on my dashboard for
a week."
It was Mr. Starling's
father R.L. who final-
ly brought the paper's
significance to his
son's attention.
"Do you realize
this is dated 1824?" he asked,
amazed.
That's when the son realized
he had something important.
The issue of The Maryland
Herald was printed November
16, 1824. Where it came from
and how it ended up thrown
away and in the back of a pick
up truck in Cuyler on its way to
the dump is a mystery.
A comparison to contempo-
rary papers illustrates a striking

1987 class reunion
The Baker County Class of

The cost is $15 per person

eryone there.

Volunteers are

preparingfor


relay in spring
Glenda Scallan and Jo-Ann
Huk, volunteers for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society, attended a
two-day workshop in Orlando
preparing for the 2008 Relay for
Life.
The annual relay is a celebra-
tion for survivors of cancer, a re-
membrance to those we've lost
to cancer and the fight for a cure
for cancer. The ACS has many
programs to help people dealing
with cancer, including prosthet-
ics, transportation to treatments,
the Hope Lodge in Gainesville
for caretakers while patients are
receiving treatments and much
more.


If you or anyone you know
needs help dealing with cancer
and recovery, call 1-800-ACS-

If you are interested in enter-
ing a team for the Relay, call Jo-
Ann at 259-6942.

modern papers typically high-
lights breaking news.
The front page of The Her-
ald consists entirely of adver-
tisements, announcements of
auctions, weather predictions,
lottery statistics and other infor-
mation useful to the public.
Some of the items on the front


fered for the return of runaway
slaves.
Mr. Starling is anxious to
share his discovery with his
friends.
"I'm not sure why the paper
caught my eye. It was about the
last thing I expected to find,"
he said. "I guess you just never
know."

In Loving Memory
of my Dad,
Vernon (Tom) Davis
1929-2004
It has been three years since he
has left. I miss hing more each
and everyday. He was some-
one I could talk to ifI had any
problems in my life, which I
have had a few, but no one to
really talk to. It won't be long
until God comes back and then
I can have my talk with my
Dad. Because Acts 24:15 tells
us there is going to be a resur-
rection of both the righteous
and the unrighteous and Psalms
37:11& 29 brings out that the
meek ones themselves and the
righteous one will possess the
earth and reside upon it forever.
I hope to share this with my
dad.

Thanks for kindness
To our families and many
friends in Baker County and
surrounding areas:
You might think that what
you did was a little thing because
you do so much for others all the
time. You are so naturally gen-
erous and thoughtful every day
that you probably don't realize
how rare it is to find people who
are so considerate and so happy
to give of themselves as you are.
But what you did really meant a
lot to us and we just want to say
thank you for being so kind and
thoughtful; thank you for being
the wonderful people we know
are in Baker County.

Munson defensive Man of the Match


Picking a defensive player for Man of the Match from r-
Friday's season-opening football Kickoff Classic was a tough
one. The defense played extremely well, limiting West Nassau -
to just 87 yards on offense in the Wildcats' 44-7 win over the
Warriors.
There were lots of standouts on the defensive side, but ,'
when the Cats needed something to happen defensively, it
was Ethan Munson's name that was called. The 16-year-old
sophomore defensive tackle made a lot of good things happen
for the Cats, breaking up passes, tackling runners of a loss,
and harassing Warrior quarterback AJ Higgenbotham all night long.
It was Munson's first game in the red and white of the Wildcats. The
son of Fred and Kim Munson of Macclenny played as a freshman for
the Trinity Conquerors before transferring this year to BCHS.


"I played defensive tackle on the JV for Trinity, and then
got moved up to varsity," said Munson.
Trinity's loss was the Wildcats' gain. Munson says strength
and conditioning mark the biggest difference. in the two pro-
grams. "We're a lot stronger here."
He is strictly a defensive player one of the few Cats who
don't platoon, and that suits him fine.
"I like playing defense because I like collisions," said Mun-
son. West Nassau running backs can attest to that as Munson
laid some serious lumber in Friday's game.
Coach Bobby Johns praised him for his tackling and as a complete
player on defense. Munson had five unassisted tackles that night for
BCHS.


Former'Bama QB


new coach at Union

It's old home week at Union County High as fans in Lake Butler
welcome back one of their standout players in a new role. Andrew
Zow, who led the Tigers to state.titles and a football dynasty, and then
went on to lead the Alabama Crimson Tide as their quarterback, puts
on the coaching shorts and whistle as the new Tiger head coach.
Zow and his Tigers will host the Baker County Wildcats this Fri-
day evening, fresh off an impressive 44-7 pastingof West Nassau in
the Kickoff Classic at Memorial Stadium. last week. Zow is convinced
that his team has seen a lot of improvement in the off-season. Bobby
Johns is convinced of the same thing regarding the Cats. We'll see who
comes away more convinced.
Coach Johns has preached "finishing the game" all summer. Zow
has stressed togetherness and team spirit. It could all add up to the
same thing a W in the win column for the team that takes its mantra
to heart.
Zow has plenty of weapons to work with. New quarterback Chris
Alexander takes over from Austen Roberts, who graduated and will
play at Georgia Southern. Though short on experience, Alexander has
all the tools. He's quick, elusive and has a good arm.
He also has an outstanding receiver in senior Jordan Clyatt with
good hands, decent speed and size.- a dependable player. Jordan Wil-
liams lines up on the other side of the line from Clyatt and can also
catch the ball.
Alexander has a number of fleet running backs. The Tigers will
work out of the I-formation, and leading the way will be fullback Jus-
tin Hanson. He will primarily be a blocking back this season, but is
very strong and dependable in short yardage situations.
Look for Todd Filer, Shandale Lee, ,Deven Perry, Sammy Sim-
mons and Justin Tyson to split time at running back. Perry scored a
pair of touchdowns in the Tigers' spring jamboree and will.probably
be their main ground threat; at least until someone takes that mantle
from him.
The Tigers have a good, experienced offensive line and can pass
defend as well as open holes for the running backs. On defense they
lack a lot of size but make up for it with quickness. Zeke Scaff and
Aaron Dukes lead the way in the linebacking corps, and senior Mi-
chael Chandler anchors the defensive line. Zow's defense operates out
of the 3-5 set, so the linebackers get a lot of work.
Coach Zow has something that the Wildcats lack a talented kicker.
Cody Bogard isn't experienced, but has shown a lot of promise since
lacing up the kicking shoes in the off-season.
All and all, the Tigers should prove a good test for the Wildcats and
visa versa. These are two teams that have put on quite a show when
they've met up in the past, and Friday night in Lake Butler should be
no different.
