New River board decides to seek

proposals from others on engineers
BY ANDREW BARE was simply to move Mr. Darabi to a more two contracts with, Bradford county wer
Press staff detailed, time and materials contract. too different to compare prices. And the

A month ago, Frank Darabi's role as the
chief engineer at the New River Regional
Landfill seemed secure. But after the land-
fill's board of directors voted September 13
to take the first step in the process of select-
ing a new engineer, that no longer appears
to be the case.
The directors voted 4-2 to send out a
request for qualifications. Essentially, the
landfill will take out advertisements ask-
ing interested engineering firms for lists of
their accomplishments. Mr. Darabi is eli-
gible to apply, but he said Thursday that he
was unsure if he would do so.
On August 9, the landfill's directors de-
cided, in a split vote, to retain Mr. Darabi,
who also works with Baker County and the
city of Macclenny. A motion at that meet-
ing was made to retain the engineer and
not advertise for RFQs..Though the motion
failed in a 3-3 vote, it guaranteed the status
quo would remain intact.
The New River landfill serves Baker,
Union and Bradford counties, and its board
of directors is comprised of two members
of each of those counties' commissions.
Mark Hartley and Julie Combs, the Baker
County representatives, both voted to ad-
vertise for RFQs.
Ms. Combs had seconded the motion to
retain Mr. Darabi in August. But she said
Monday she thought the August motion

Wayne Smith, who
made the motion,
specified it includ-
ed retaining Mr.
Darabi with the
contract re-negoti-
ation. The minutes
show that, later in
the meeting, Ms.
Combs did show
support for issuing Frank Darabi
a RFQ.
Controversy first came to the forefront in
July, when Bradford County commissioner
Eddie Lewis complained about a lack of de-
tailed invoices from Mr. Darabi. The engi-
neer, who operates an office out of Gaines-
ville, used to work with 'JoneseEdmonds, a
large Gainesville-based firm. But once he
severed that relationship, Jones-Edmonds
was awarded a contract to run Bradford
County's landfill, a job once held by Mr.
Darabi. According to Mr. Lewis, Jones-Ed-
monds was charging 50 percent less than
Mr. Darabi did for the same work.
For his part, Mr. Darabi claimed that the

contract Mr. Darabi has with New River
pays him a monthly retainer and does not
require time and materials invoices. (That
also changed Thursday, as Mr. Darabi will-
ingly agreed to change his contract to re-
quire those detailed invoices.)
The engineer has consistently attempted
to portray himself as crucial to the success
of New River, and, generally, the landfill's
staff has not disagreed. Darrell O'Neal, the
landfill's director, said as much at the Au-
gust meeting,
But Perry Kent, New River's assistant
director, said in August that Mr. Darabi
had issued threats if he was removed as
the landfill's engineer. When asked later
to elaborate on those comments, Mr. Kent
The RFQ process is a lengthy one, and
New River attorney Jon Wershow said it
could take up to six months to complete it.
Ms. Combs suggested the landfill use an in-
dependent consulting firm to solicit qualifi-
cations, an idea that was met with approval
by the directors and Mr. O'Neal.
Mr. Darabi expressed no bitterness to-
ward the directors Thursday, though at
one point he laughingly suggested that The
Press had unfairly covered the recently

The Baker County Commis-

$15,000 on a new van.

on the St. Mary's River.

The Taylor money would go
to improve playground equip-

The boat ramp on the St.

controversial. In June, the com-
mission nixed a proposed "prim-
itive camp ground" site, and in
doing so earned a standing ova-
tion from 75 nearby residents.

The commission also accept-

and DuPont. It allowed DuPont
to re-locate a portion of CR-228
near Maxville. The county has

already earmarked the money
for experimental road re-surfac-

And in a pre-meeting bud-

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday September 20, 2007 Page 3

Proper, healthy foods can be found in

biblical passages, speaker tells audience

Press Staff
Wouldn't you like to discover
something of the health God in-
tended for His people?
That is one of the first ques-
tions asked in the popular diet
book entitled What the Bible
says about healthy living, by Dr.
Rex Russell.
Dr. Russell, a ra-
diologist residing
in Arkansas, travels
widely and lectures
on health and nutri- i a

cal principles. He
spoke at First Baptist l*.
Church in Glen St.
Mary September 7. .
Sanderson resi-
dent Nancy Oliver
follows the princi-
ples set down in Dr.
Russell's book and
was instrumental
in arranging for the
health guru to speak
in Baker County.
Ms. Oliver invited
a group of people
who planned to at-
tend the presentation
to her home to have
dinner and meet Dr.
Russell. She served
broiled lamb, salad
of organic mixed
greens and tomatoes,
cheese, olive oil, or- Dr.I
ganic bread made
from fresh milled
grain, dates and a variety of
fresh, unroasted nuts.

"Everything in this meal is
recommended in Dr. Russell's
book," she told her guests. "Most
of the ingredients can be found
in the Winn-Dixie. Anything
else can easily be ordered."
A committed Christian, Dr.
Russell's approach to health is to
use food as medicine by eating
what is sanctioned by the Old
Testament and avoiding what it
warns against.
His book's three main prin-
ciples are: eat onl\ substances
God created for food; eat foods
as the\ were created before
they are changed or converted;
avoid food addictions by not let-
ting any one food or drink be-
come your god.
Dr. Russell backs up his
claims with Scripture. During
his talk at First Baptist, Power
Point slides of applicable verses

human body, especially because

tends to naturally remove toxins

Women's Club captures a

third place for scrapbook

Press Staff

The Macclenny Women's
Club 2006-07 scrap book was
awarded third place at the state
level during the Florida Federa-
tion of Women's Clubs annual
meeting in Orlando September
15. An additional award was
earned for first place for original
cover design.
The scrapbook previously
took top awards in the Greater
Florida Women's Clubs District
4 annual scrap book judging in
Fernandina Beach August 24,
earning Best Overall as well as
first place for content, organiza-
tion and creativity. Professional
staff from Scrap 'N Around in
Amelia Island served as judges
at the district level.
The scrap books were judged
in 24 categories, earning points
for each which were calculated
for the final total score. Cat-
egories could earn a possible 20
points with an additional 10 ex-
tra points given at a judge's dis-
cretion. The Macclenny club's
book was the high scorer with
328 points.
The judge's handwritten com-
ments were as follows:
One of the best we have seen.
Lots of detail. Creative and ex-
tensive information. Overall

Two suspects later seen on a
surveillance video successfully
stole, seven, laptop computers,
from the WIl-Mart SuLpercenter
in Macclenny the evening of
September 3.
The black males are shown
taking the units out of their box-
es, then placing them in a large
box they then carted out of the
store. The exchange took place
in a receiving area, said store
employee John Austin. The vid-
eo was recorded about 7:30 that
day, and the crime reported to
the sheriff's department the fol-
lowing afternoon.
The computers had a com-
bined value of $5236.
In other theft cases, seven
firearms and other property val-
ued at $3400 were reported tak-
en from a two-story barn beside
the residence of Michael Jones
off Tim Rhoden Rd.
The victim told Deputy
Claude Hurley the theft likely
took place in the 24 hour period
before he reported it about mid-
day on September 16. Entry into
the barn was through a locked
side door, and the victim said
several persons were aware of
the location of a hidden key. The
items were taken from both lev-
els of the structure, and the front
double doors were open from

great job!
Women's clubs chronicle
their activities and events dur-
ing the previous year which runs
from May to April. During that
time, members save memora-
bilia, photos and news clippings
which a committee uses to pro-
duce a scrapbook prepared to
meet state club standards.
"This is our footprint for the
year," said committee member
Trilby Crews.
Members participate in a va-
riety of activities that benefit lo-
cal and national civic projects
which fall into five main catego-
ries: home life, health, conserva-
tion, education, arts and interna-
tional affairs.
Each scrapbook must also
present a section on its club's
history, yearly meetings, related
projects, membership and fund
raising events.
"It helps to have a theme,"
said Ms. Crews. "Our theme for
2006-07 was 'Dear Diary.'"
A lady and her cat mascot
take the reader through a year
crowded with weekly projects
and activities, along with fre-
quent local and regional meet-
ings and travel.

reader along, imbuing a personal
quality to the book instead of the

In addition to the shotguns
and rifles. Mt Jones said two
pairs of binoculars, a hunting
bow and possibly some jewelry
were taken.
A chainsaw valued at $314
was taken from the bed of a
pickup truck belonging to Mar-
vin Johns and parked off Rail-
road Ave. in Macclenny between
August 27 and September 10.
*Two new tires valued at
$250 were removed from a
parked 1993 Chevrolet pickup
outside the residence of Joe
Barber off Barber Rd. overnight
on September 13. Police found
foot, tire and finger prints near
the scene.
Wanda Rowe told police she
was away from her residence on
South 5th St. in Macclenny only
about 20 minutes the evening
of September 15 when she re-
turned to find someone running
from her garage.
The intruder, who fled on foot
east from the scene, apparently
had attempted to take a pressure
washer valued at $300. It was
taken from the garage and left
on the side of the house.

mat typically seen in the
past. At the end, the lady
and her cat go to bed,
exhausted from their in-
credibly busy year.
A secondary theme
running through the book
is that of a puzzle. Puzzle
piece shapes show up
frequently in the artwork
and are put together little
by little, indicating that
when everyone does their
part, the final goal is' suc-
cessfully reached.
The massive "diary"
weighed 11 pounds and
even featured a function-
ing lock and key.
According to the com-
mittee, each member de-
voted a whopping 100-
plus hours to the project.
That time includes
shopping for additional
supplies and participating in
several short scrap booking
workshops to help the commit-
tee hone presentation skills.
According to the committee,
none had ever prepared a scrap-
book before they were given the
responsibility two years ago by
At that time, the project man-
ager became ill and the club
passed responsibility onto three
members: Ms. Crews, Peg Ar-

end and Jill Melvin.
"This is our third attempt.
The first time, we-didn't really
know what we were doing. We
thought our scrapbook was re-
ally clever. The judges thought
something else," said Ms. Arend
with a laugh.
The committee decided that
attending some scrap booking
workshops might be beneficial.
That extra effort certainly paid
The ladies also said they en-

joy looking at scrapbooks from
the past. The club has many such
books and they find it interest-
ing to see what members were
doing in the 1950s.
"It's fun to see where we were
and how far we've come," said
Ms. Melvin. "Now we're excited
about our book competing at
state level."

The ladies agree that the

scrap book is their way of honor-

knowledging the hard work and
effort that goes into the numer-
ous service projects undertaken
throughout the year.

a pair of county deputies were
able to transport him to county
jail for booking the night of Sep-
tember 14.
Before Andrew Galea, 47,
was taken from the scene at CR
229 and US 90 in Sanderson, he
managed to kick Deputy Tony
Norman once in the throat and
twice in the chest, then kick
Deputy John Hardin in the
chest. He also damaged the rear
window of a police cruiser by
repeatedly kicking it before the
leg restraints were applied.
Deputy Norman said he an-
swered a disturbance call near
the intersection about 9:15 and
Mr. Galea approached him ini-
tially with a drawn pocket knife
as he parked his police car.
He then dropped the knife and
moved aggressively toward the
officer, who then handcuffed
him. According to Deputy Nor-
man's report, that was when the
suspect began violently resisting
being placed in the patrol car.
Deputy Norman said the taser
charges had no effect on Mr. Ga-
lea, who smelled strongly of al-
cohol, nor did the pepper spray
after he was in the rear seat. It
took both officers to affix the leg
shackles, before which Deputy
Hardin was kicked.
After Mr. Galea was taken
from the jail to Fraser Hospi-
tal because of unstable vital
signs, Deputy Norman learned
he threatened James Eddy, 62,
of Sanderson in a similar man-
ner after running in front of
his westbound vehicle on US
90. Mr. Eddy said the suspect
yanked open his passenger side
door waving the pocket knife,

SMark Crews, 26, of Jack-
sonville entered a no contest
plea this week to possession of
a firearm by a convicted felon,
possession of prescription drugs
and resisting an officer, and
drew a one-year sentence in
county jail. He was arrested on
the first charge in October of last
year; on the two other counts in
May, 2007.
He, too, has a prior record
ranging from burglary to unlaw-
ful burning and making obscene
phone calls.
Travis Bonnell, 27, of Jack-
sonville was given a nine-month
jail sentence following by two
years on drug-offender proba-
tion in return for his no contest
plea to four counts of sale and
possession of prescription medi-
cation and cocaine. He was ar-
rested in April, 2007 after an
undercover sting in the parking
lot of the Wal-Mart Supercenter
in Macclenny.
The state dropped two related
charges in return for the plea.

early afternoon on September
Darnell Lee, 25, was ar-
rested for disorderly conduct for
failing to calm down after a con-
frontation with ex-wife Tamika
'Lee, 30, at her residence off
Dolphin St. in Sanderson.
Deputy William Hilliard was
called to the address about 4:30
am on September 12 and said
Mr. Lee smelled of alcohol and
refused to keep away from the
residence or cease yelling and
cursing. Once confined to the
rear of a patrol car, he repeatedly
struck his head on a window.
Rufus Donaldsonl, 48, was
arrested for trespass after warn-
ing on the property of Karen
Thomas, 44, on Rush Lane in
Sanderson following an argu-
ment. Deputy Wayne Limbaugh
answered the call about 1:30 am
on September 11 and learned
from a dispatcher that Mr. Don-
aldson was forbidden to go on
the property because of past
similar incidents.
A criminal complaint alleg-
ing aggravated battery was filed
against a 16-year-old female
and Tiara Robertson, 18, both of
Macclenny, following an inci-
dent at the corner of South Blvd.
and Grissholm St. the evening
of September 13.
'Latrice Givens, 21, of Mac-
clenny said she was attacked by
the pair while standing on the
corner engaged in a conversa-
tion with others.



A hit-and-run accident out-
side the Country Club Lounge
in south Macclenny early on
September 15 resulted in the
arrest of the driver of a pickup
truck and her husband after he
was found walking along South
6th St. near the scene.
Christina Harvey, 42, of Glen
St. Mary was booked for drunk
driving after she was spotted at
the wheel of the red Dodge pick-
up that had earlier been reported
as the vehicle that struck a mo-
torcycle in the lounge parking
lot as it sped away.
Lt. Billy Miller found the
pickup in the parking lot of the
Waffle House not long after the
accident was reported about
2:16, and Deputy Harold Taylor
said Ms. Harvey was unsteady
on her feet when she exited the
vehicle. She also failed several
field sobriety tests, and refused
further testing when taken to
county jail.
The earlier parking lot acci-
dent injured Carl Miller, 34, of
Macclenny, who was on a mo-
torcycle. There was no informa-
tion on the extent of his injury,
nor the damage to the bike.
Deputy Taylor said he found
James Harvey, 43, walking north
of the Interstate 10 viaduct, and
he also smelled of alcohol and
was uncooperative when ques-
tioned about the accident. He
consented to a search of the ve-
hicle his wife had been driving,
and police found 70 grams of
marijuana and 71 pills of three
varieties in a plain bottle. Mr.

The Baker County School
Board voted to award the bid
for unleaded gasoline and diesel
fuel to L.V. Heirs, Inc. of Mac-
clenny during its September 17
Hiers was not the lowest bid-
der, but was selected over others
because of a bid provision that
it have a re-fueling site within
a two-mile radius of the bus ga-
rage in west Macclenny.
"Theirs was the only compa-
ny able to guarantee the delivery
of fuel in adverse circumstanc-
es. even a hurricane," said Gary
Pelham, the district's director of
According to Mr. Pelham, if
the district's buses were forced
to use regular retail outlets to get
fuel for even one day, the cost
would outstrip any savings the
lower bid company would have
afforded. That alternate site is
the Hiers office on Florida Ave.
in east Macclenny.

generate a clear picture of a stu-

skills mandated by each state.
ThinkLink testing's claim
to fame is being able to predict
with up to 90% accuracy the
performance levels of individual
students. Since testing results are
returned quickly to teachers and
school administrative personnel,
they are supposed to then more
easily pinpoinmveakareas. Test-
ing can be perfortied up to thiee

times yearly.
"This is a wonderful pro-
gram," touted assistant BCHS
principal Thomas Hill. "It's
much more than just a test. It
quickly focuses teachers to stu-
dent needs"
Teachers also interact with
the ThinkLink website, down-
loading suggested supplemental
material to use in their student
intervention practices.
"I believe one of the reasons
we were so successful in math
this year was due to our use of
ThinkLink and FCAT Test-
Maker. ThinkLink allowed us to
identify our student's individual
weaknesses through test ques-
tions based on the standards,"
said teacher Tammy Binn. "Once
they were identified, we were
able to use FCAT TestMaker
to provide them with additional

Smile for the tooth x-ray camera ..
Dental hygienist Andrea Griffis demonstrates using a bite wing for taking dental x-
rays to students at Keller Intermediate last week. Ms. Griffin, who works in the office
of Dr. Meg Romeo in Macclenny, was at the school to talk to students about the im-
portance of basic dental.care and the dangers of smokeless tobacco on oral health.
Students looked at actual x-ray film and learned to identify where fillings and cavi-
ties were located and studied the physical difference between molars, incisors and
the other types of teeth. The school hopes to make the visits an on-going program.

Quick rule of thumb: know-
ing something is almost always
better than not knowing some-
So the New River Regional
Landfill's board of directors
should be applauded for its de-
cision last Thursday to seek out
potential new engineers. The
current engineer, Frank Darabi,
has been with the landfill since
its opening in the mid-90's. (Yes,
this is a column about a dump.
Stop yawning. It's important.)
Most officials associated
with New River have praised
Mr. Darabi's work with the
landfill. Even Eddie Lewis, the
Bradford County commissioner
whose protest two months ago
sparked the current controversy,
has spoken highly of the engi-
neer's work. (The exception to
the above seems to be assistant
director Perry Kent, who said
in August that Mr. Darabi had
threatened him. But Mr. Kent
has since refused to expand on
those comments) So this isn't an
issue of incompetence.
It is, instead, an issue of
avoiding willful ignorance.
Since the landfill's opening, it
has had only one engineer. At no
point has the landfill's board of
directors even attempted to look
at the qualifications or prices
of other engineers. That's un-
derstandable, as the landfill has
..beOn an almo.sj.inqualified,.sic-
Nevertheless, there's no clear
reason why New River should
not, at the very least, ask the
question. New River is not com-
mitting itself to a change in engi-
neers by filing a request for qual-
ifications. Mr. Darabi is eligible
to submit his own qualifications,
which certainly seem consider-
able. And the board of directors
will not be forced to switch to

a complete stranger unless they
deem it to be the right decision.
Essentially, there's no downside
to the action taken last Thursday.
New River's status as a success-
ful landfill will undoubtedly at-
tract some intriguing engineer-
ing firms.
However, it's important to
recognize the human element
at work here. As mentioned,
Mr. Darabi's been the engineer
at New River since the landfill
opened its pits. In fact, his rela-
tionship with New River goes
beyond that. He was instru-
mental in getting the tri-county
landfill, which is something of
an innovative concept, off the
So the man has a right to be
somewhat irked by'recent devel-
opments. Anyone who has ever
worked on a project, only to see
the credit claimed by another,
can understand how Mr. Darabi
is undoubtedly feeling. To see
the organization he has helped
shepherd to success perhaps turn


A D'high schools evidence

ofa lack ofcommitmentby

away from him must be galling.
Surely, even more infuriating is
the knowledge that the landfill's
very success, largely a result of
Mr. Darabi's own work, is what
is enabling New River to search
out top-flight engineers.
Mr. Darabi said last Thursday
(and confirmed Monday) that
he was not yet sure if he would
submit his own resume when the
board goes out for a RFQ, Back
in August, he responded to the
potential issuing of a RFQ by
saying that such an action would
be "a slap in the face." Again, an
understandable human reaction.
But while New River should
remain sensitive to all of the
above, it has an obligation to
the citizens of the three counties
represented on its board. The
board of directors should ask
whether or not those citizens
can be better served by another
engineer. Whatever the answer
to that question is, Baker, Union
and Bradford counties will be
better off because it was asked.


What I'm about to say is prob-
ably not going to win me any
friends, and may even alienate
some that I already have. But it
just may shake things up enough
to bring about an absolutely vi-
tal change that we desperately
need in Baker County.
Unless you've been locked up
at Guantanamo for the last year,
you know that Baker County
High School is a "D" school.
Why in the world is that the
case? We have a great campus,
skilled teachers, solid students
and some superb folks in lead-
ership. So why are we doing so
The answer is very simple:
It's because being an "A" school
is not really. our first and fore-
most, absolute, at-all-costs, do-

Bizarre buthumorous in the world ofsports

Normally, I don't mix sports
into my humor column, but
lately the news out of the sports
world is just so bizarre that it has
to be considered humor. That's
the only way to
look at without MY
getting serious-1
ly depressed.
Here are THE
a few actual
items from the ROBERT
world of sports
that made me shake my head in
disbelief. Of course, I add a few
of my own interpretations on the
Just when you thought the
world was weird enough, this
piece of nuttiness. The mallard
mascot for the University of Or-
egon was suspended for a game
for brawling with another mas-
The Oregon duck got into
an escalating war of words and
actions with the Houston Cou-
gars two weeks ago. The duck
shoved the Cougar, who shoved
back. Later, as the Cougar did
pushups after Houston scored,
the Duck kicked him over and
body slammed him.
Later in the game, after an-
other altercation on the sidelines
where the two had to be:sepa-
rated by security and the Hous-
ton cheerleaders, the rampaging
mallard tackled the Cougar and
started punching him. The Or-
egon athletic director said the
Duck had been guilty of several
"inappropriate actions" over the
course of the season.
I blame ESPN, which ran a
series of commercials featuring
the college mascots. The com-
mercial was very funny, but it is


obvious the duck didn't feel like
he was being given enough face
time ... er ... mask time ... er ...
giant plastic duckhead time, and
wanted to get the attention of the
--folks at ESPN.
Of course, in
I)E F a world where
television has
ATTER shows about
rERARD brides and over-
the-top "sweet
sixteen" parties, it won't be long
before we get the Ultimate Mas-
cot Fighting Challenge in which
Albert the Alligator bites the
head off the Fresno State Bull-
dog, and Chief Osceola throws
his spear through the Oklahoma
State Cowboy.
One of the funniest com-
ments heard on the sidelines of
the Baker County Wildcat game
this weekend happened when a
stray dog ran on the field. It took
a couple of minutes to corral the
mutt, but when Principal John-
nie Jacobs picked him up and
carried him off the field, you
could hear one of the police of-
ficers yell, "Hey, Michael Vick.
Put that dog down."
I had to laugh.
Other than the Oregon Duck
and the rampaging mutt, my fa-
vorite weird sports story of the
week has to be Bill Belichick of
the New England Patriots steal-
ing defensive signals from the
New York Jets. "Camera-gate,"
as it has been dubbed, occurred
two weeks ago when an assistant
coach videotaped the Jets' de-
fensive coaches' signals to their
players and sent it to coaches in
the booth. They then informed
quarterback Tom Brady -about

how the Jets were lining up.
The Jets and the NFL were
not impressed by this bit of grid-
iron espionage and came down
hard. They fined Belichick half
a million dollars and the team a
quarter million. They also took
away the next first-round draft
pick away from the Patriots.
Naturally, I try to look at the
upside of things and scanned the
sidelines on Sunday's game be-
tween the Pats and the Chargers.
I thought that perhaps the coach-
ing staff would have gotten a
new sponsorship from Sony
Digicam. They might have worn
it on their uniforms like NAS-
CAR drivers, maybe helping to
defray the cost of the fines.
If you're a Gator fan, you
might find this one funny or
maybe appropriate. This past
week's big game with Tennessee
was supposed to answer whether
quarterback Tim Tebow was re-
ally ready for the big time.- The
commentators talked about how
after two games against lesser
competition, the Gators were
ready for the "big boys."
Tebow is probably the most

hyped quarterback in the NCAA,
unusual considering this is his
first year as starter. By all ac-
counts, he has handled his "ce-
lebrity-ness" pretty well.
In college, to' get ready for
the opposing team, a scout team
runs plays against the varsity
that they expect to see on Sat-
urday. The players on the scout
team take on the personas of the
opposing team.
As a joke, the scout team
quarterback portraying Tim
Tebow worked out all week long
wearing a Superman cape.
From the outcome of Sat-
urday's game, he should have
passed the cape over to the real
Tim Tebow.

or-die priority.
Now, this doesn't mean our
leaders don't talk a good game
about how important education
is to them; to our children, to our
future and so forth. But their ac-
tions belie their words. If making
BCHS an "A" school was really
our "whatever it takes" priority,
we'd have done something dif-
ferent by now. Surely we'd be
better than a "D" school!
Apparently there are things
more important to us than the
future of our children, and so we
never demand the dramatic and
bold changes that are needed.
So, who's to blame? There's
plenty to go around. And, as-
suming that our teachers and
students are just as capable as
their peers throughout the state,
we must place part of the blame
on our school superintendent
and school board. We did elect
them to make a difference, did
we not? Alas, the results speak
for themselves. We obviously
are not doing the same thing
that "A" high schools around
the state are doing. Instead, our
beloved high school is appar--
ently patterned after other "D"
schools in the state, or so one
would think.
I realize our school system has
had some notable successes, and
I applaud them, but that doesn't
excuse the poor showing of
BCHS. I read some of the "ex-
cuses" made for our drop from
a "C" school to a "D" school. I
have to ask why, if other schools
are; able toiuaecomplish these
things, haven'tw?".
How about setting aside "the
mother of all bonuses" if BCHS
becomes an "A" school within
two years? Or how about the
school board cutting its own
salaries and those of administra-
tors by 15% per year until we
become an "A" school? Even if
such an effort failed, we would
have to applaud them for try-
ing. And, really, could that make
things much worse for BCHS?
But there are also others to
blame, but first we'll all need a
mirror. Yep, we're to blame, too.
Why? Because even though the
FCAT has. now been informing
us for some time as to how poor-
ly BCHS is performing, we have
meekly tolerated that average
(at best) or below average per-
formance. Where is the outrage
that our children are being short-
changed academically? Where
are the angry letters to the news-
paper because our high school is
one of the poorest performing in
the state? Where is the landslide
of votes for change at election
time? All of these things could
work together to force change,
but we have went "quietly into
that good night," I'm afraid. So
you see that we share part of the
Here's a "put-up-or-shut-
up" challenge for school board
members, and the school super-
intendent: either bring BCHS to
an "A" level within three years
or resign their positions and
promise to not seek re-election
in Baker County for at least five
Now there's an incentive to
do the right thing! Further, if
they pull it off, who wouldn't
want to vote for them?
Don't you just love a chal-
lenge? If they pull it off, I'll be
happy to cast my vote for them
all. It's time we remember that
"it's all about our children."
It's not about anyone's politi-
cal agenda. In fact, it's not even
about you and me. It's about the
children. And it starts with this

inary engineering on a new well
and plans for water extension to
neighborhoods north of US 90.
The contract cost is $62,500.
The engineering phase is
supposed to secure "readiness
to proceed" status for the Glen
project, bumping it up in line
for funds via a Community De-
velopment Block Grant in the
next cycle. If the application is
successful, Glen could start con-
struction later next year.
The council also approved
without dissent:
Alterations to the employee
handbook changing the start
time for yearly benefit anniver-
sary from January to October
to coincide with the fiscal year
calendar; revising the rules on
comp time; and amending the
rules on carrying over unused
vacation time.
Appointing town clerk Don-
na Loadholtz in a dual role as
code enforcement officer. Glen
St. Mary contacts with the coun-
ty's code enforcement board to
hear. cases of violations of zon-
ing and land use laws, but Ms.
Loadholtz will now be charged
with initial citing of violators to
prod them into correcting them
before they get to the hearing
Council members indicated
an awareness of multiple code
violations currently existing,
and the county CEB has heard
but a handful of Glen cases the
past decade.
Appointment of a five-mem-

ber design review committee to
insure adherence to the town's
"Envision Glen" guidelines.
The group will be asked for a
recommendations on matters
like minimum square footage on
new residences, and whether a
batting cage business should be
allowed on US 90 in the main
business district.
The council concurred with
Mayor Juanice Padgett's sug-
gested appointees: Cathy Men-
dolera, Aaron Hicks, Joe Raul-
erson, Peggy Driggers and
Larry Dupree. All have agreed

to serve.
Amendments in both the
current and 2008 budgets, most-
ly involving moving balances
around into new categories.
Removal of obsolete or un-
used property from the town's
inventory list. These include an
old fire truck and rescue unit,
office equipment and damaged
outdoor furniture.

Battle ofthe undefeated looms

Cats smother Arlington

inFriday opener 61-10

Press staff
The Wildcats scored early,
easily and often Friday night in
a 61-10 rout of Arlington Coun-
try Day School.
It wouldn't be accurate to
say that Baker County played a
flawless game or had no prob-
lems during its first home tilt of
the regular season. But when the
Wildcats were able to get their
plays off on time and without
drawing a holding penalty, they
shredded ACD's defense.
The Wildcats racked up 516
yards on just 39 plays, mean-
ing the; essential, averaged,
more than a i.rst down every..,
time they ran a play. The big-
gest gains came in the rushing
attack, where Baker County
ground out 416 yards and sev-
en touchdowns. Almost ev-
eryone got into the act for the.
Wildcat running game. Greg
Williams picked up 121 yards
and just seven carries. Harold
Moore scored two touchdowns
and accrued 96 yards on only
six rushes. Quarterback Carlos
Holton sprinted for 90 yards on
six carries. Even Darvin Ruise,
a sophomore athlete who spends
most of his time in the defensive
backfield, picked up a 65-yard
touchdown run.
"It was a good win for us, a,
good, solid win," head coach
Bobby Johns said during his
Monday radio show. "I thought
we executed very well on of-
fense. They were not real good
defensively; that was pretty ob-
vious for us."
But the Wildcats' first score
came through the air, on the very
first play from scrimmage. After
.forcing a fumble on Arlington's
40-yard-line to start the game,
the Wildcats received the benefit
of a defensive holding penalty.
On the very next snap Holton hit
Ruise streaking down the right
side for a perfectly executed 30-
yard touchdown pass. Moore ran
in the two-point conversion.
The play was part of a con-
'certed effort by Coach Johns
and the rest of the coaching staff
to bring more balance to the
Wildcats' run-heavy scheme.
Against schools like Raines,
Baker County will need to put
the ball in the air occasionally.
"Our goal at the beginning of
the season was hopefully throw
20 times a game," Coach Johns
said. "If I'm throwing it 30, I'm
in trouble. If I'm throwing it five
or six, I'm probably not scoring
enough points."
The following defensive pos-
session was a frustrating one for

Harold Moore stiff-arms a Arlington Country Day defender.

Baker County. After the Apaches
drove down the field, Williams
picked off a pass at the one-
yard line and took off down the
left sideline. Unfortunately, he
fumbled the ball and Arlington
recovered. They would go on to
kick a field goal, cutting Baker
County's lead to 8-3.
But the Wildcats shook off
the disappointment with shock-
ing speed. On their first play
from scrimmage on the drive,
Moore broke a 42-yard touch-
down run. Though the two-point
conversion failed, the Wildcats
had 14 points on all of two of-
fepsive plays.
After the ensuing Apache
drive resulted in a turnover on
downs, the fans at Memorial
Stadium again witnessed Moore
in the end zone. This time, he
scored from 18 yards out. A
botched Arlington punt later,
and the score was 22-3.
Lee Battles added his own

The scoreboard says it all.

18-yard run to make it 30-3.
Arlington would score its final
touchdown on a quarterback
scramble, but 30-10 was as close
as the Apaches would get.
The biggest play of the night
was Carlos Holton's 60-yard
touchdown scramble on 4th and
14 from his own 40-yard line.
But the win, which came a
week before the Wildcats' huge
showdown with Raines, was
somewhat marred by an on-field
fight at the end of the second
half. It was unclear exactly what
sparked the brawl, but it started
after Arlington, down 43-10
with 1.7 seconds left in the first
half, apparently hit a long bomb
deep into Wildcat territory. Af-
ter the play was ruled dead,
several Wildcats and Apaches
traded blows. The incident re-
sulted in Baker County's Harold
Moore being ejected, as well
as an unknown member of Ar-
lington Country Day. While the

Wildcat partisans in the
stands cheered, Mr. Johns
was visibly angered by the
scrum. Moore will miss
Friday's game against
"Two guys jumped on
him, and he retaliated,"
Mr. Johns said. "Obvious-
ly, we were disappointed
that he did that. But it is
what it is. It just kind of
got out of hand."

The Wildcats rolled over Ar-
lington Country Day in their
home opener on Friday, but will
face a much tougher test this Fri-
day in their first district game
versus the Raines Vikings at Me-
morial Field.
The. Vikings were victorious
this past week as they capitalized
on a pair of third-period fumbles
to defeat Ed White 38-14. It was
a matchup of undefeated teams.
It's hard to judge exactly how
good the game might have been
because the Commanders lost
their leading rusher in the second
quarter and the Viking defense
gave Raines the edge in the sec-
ond half. The game was a close
one in the first half, but Raines
took a slim 12-7 lead into the
locker room.
One thing is sure the Wild-
cats haven't faced a team yet
this season that has the variety
of weapons that the Vikings pos-
sess. Raines has about as bal-
anced an offensive effort as a
coach could wish. Quarterback
Kevin Hutchings had 166 yards
pAssinig'fid the tearri rushed the
ball 24 times for 123 yard's: .
The running game wasn't as
dominating as it has been, but
the Vikings didn't really need
it. Hutchings had plenty of big
plays to make the offense work.
Defensively, the Vikings were
very powerful. The defense broke



Statistically, the Wildcats
couldn't have had a much bet-
ter outing than their romp over
Arlington Country Day last Fri-
day. The 61 points they amassed
stopped at one shy of tying the
Baker High record point total of
62 set against Stanton prep in
Offensively, The Cats racked
up the stats with 416 yards rush-
ing on 25 attempts for an amaz-
ing 16.6 yards per rush average.
This contrasts with the 27 yards
rushing the Wildcat defense al-
lowed ACD.
Greg Williams led the way
for the host Cats, running the
ball 7 times for 121 yards and
a touchdown. Harold Moore
had 6 rushes for 96 yards and 2
scores. Carlos Holton rushed for
90 yards on 5 carries and scored
a touchdown. Darvin Ruise only
ran the ball once, but it was for
a 65-yard touchdown scamper.
Lee Battles carried the ball 5
times for 41 yards and 2 scores.
Quarterback Holton threw the

Friday's game against
Raines is being touted as one
of the biggest games in years
and Coach Bobby Johns and
the Wildcats want to make
sure fans are prepared to be
the "12th man." Johns is re-
questing that home fans all
wear red to the game.
"I know that our colors
are red, white and gold,"
said Johns, "but we'd really
like a red-out for game."
Other teams in the past
have requested fans wear
a certain color. The Gators
requested that the home

black and Penn State's game

Hutchings opened the game
with a short pass to Javon Per-
due, who raced 86 yards for the
score. That wasn't the only big

pass. He connected with Varner
on a 65-yard pass play. Vamer
almost scored on the run. Hutch-
ings finished the drive with a one
yard sneak.
The Wildcat defensive backs
will need to play sharp. But
perhaps first on Coach Bobby
Johns' priority list will be stop-
ping mental mistakes. Johns'
face got redder and redder as the
Cats committed holding penalty

The Cats face a very antici-
pated matchup with the Raines
Vikings on Friday (see related
story), setting up a showdown
between two undefeated teams
with the Raines contest at home
this Friday.
Here's a look at how other
Wildcat 2007 opponents did last
The Jackson Tigers rebound-
ed from a loss to Charlton Coun-
ty with a 28-14 victory over Clay
County. Running back Antonio
Lenton ran for 117 yards, and
two touchdowns for the Tigers.
Jackson platooned quarterbacks,
using senior Cory Addison, who
didn't throw the ball much, but
hit a 25-yard touchdown pass.
.The Tigers also brought in Nigel

Mitchell as their signal caller.
West Nassau gbt its first win
of the season with a 13-7 edging
of Union County. The game was
knotted at 7 most of the night,
until John Horton sacked Chris
Alexander and forced a fumble
deep in Tiger territory. Lineback-
er Perry Denham scooped it up
and ran home the game winner.
Ridgeview dropped from
the ranks of the undefeated with
an embarrassing 40-0 skunking
by powerful Bartram Trail. The
Bears capitalized on five Panther
turnovers, including two inter-
ceptions of Ridgeview quarter-
back Derek Hatcher.
Ocala Vanguard fell to Dun-
nelon 20-7.

Cat volleyball team drops first match

The Lady Wildcat volleyball
team lost its first match of the
season September 4 when the
girls traveled to Fletcher High
School. The Jacksonville Beach
school stopped the Cats 3 games
to 1. The scores were 25-22, 25-
20, 20-25 and 25-16.
It was a game that Wildcat
coach Chris Armoreda thought
that BCHS could win. "We felt
very confident coming into the
game as we tried to continue the
momentum we built from the
previous week," said Armoreda.
"We came into the game enthusi-
astic and looking to give them a
run for their money. But we made
too many errors and only served
81% for the game. If we want to
be successful we have to serve
90% or better for the game."
On the positive side, the Cats
stayed close in the games and
hung with Fletcher's hard hitting
team. Britanny Gray had 7 kills
and Tasha Battles 5. Defensive-
ly, Ashley Holton had 7 blocks,
Krista Smith 6, Whitney Coffell
5, Tasha Battles 5 and Mary Dug-
ger 3. Callie Crummey (11 serve
points) continued her superb ef-
fort. Cassie Kennedy had 10 as-
sists and Krista Smith 5 assists.

Jessi Nunn, Tina Fraze and Cal-
lie Crummey dug a lot of balls
off the floor.
On the weekend of Sept. 7
and 8, the Cats participated in
the 8-team Bell High School
Invitational Tournament. They
finished third with a record of 3-
1. The tournament results are as
Game 1 Baker County
swept Trenton 2-0 (25-20, 25-
Game 2 MaClay (Talahas-
see) defeated 'Baker County 2-0
(25-8, 25-13)
Game 3 Baker County
defeats Cornerstone Academy
(Gainesville) 2-1 (25-19, 19-25,
Game 4 (3rd place match)
- Baker County sweeps Mead-
owbrook (Ocala) 2-0 (25-20, 25-
The Cats played very well,
with the exception of the MaClay
match. "We just did not show
up for that game. We matched
up very well against MaClay,
but we were not focused and it
seemed like we were anticipat-
ing the night of rest ahead."

Penalties, penalties. Fri-
day night at Memorial stadium
the Wildcats ran their record to
3 wins against no losses in run-
away fashion as the Apaches
from Arlington Country Day
proved to be little match for the
speed and depth of the Baker
County squad.
All is ~e1ll for the Wildcats as
they prepare for one of the biggest
games to be played at Memorial
stadium in recent memory.
All is well unless you take into
account the fact that the Wildcats
are racking up nearly as many
penalty yards per game as their
opponents are gaining in offen-
sive yardage.
Offensive indeed.
To the casual fan, penalties
are a minor problem easily cor-
rectable through good coaching
and discipline. True enough, but
the last thing a playoff hope-
ful team like the Cats need is to
shoot themselves in the foot with
self-inflicted penalties.
The one thing we have learned
in the short tenure of Bobby
Johns as the Cat head coach is
that he will work tirelessly to
improve in this area. Count on
the Cats to reduce the number
of penalties this week, and play
hard versus the Vikings from
Raines High School. Raines
is also 3-0 this season with a cou-
ple of impressive victories. Might
be a good idea to get down to the
stadium a little early on Friday
night to get a good seat.
News and notes. Last week,
I picked the Gators, Wildcats,
Raines, Seminoles, and Jaguars
to win. Looks like that makes
me a perfect 5-0 going into this
Let's get right into it: The
Gators travel to Oxford, Mis-
sissippi to take on the Ole Miss
Rebels. This is the perfect "let-
down" scenario after the big win
over Tennessee (had to mention
it Mr. Sinclair), but the Gators
will roll again and improve their
record to 4-0. Gators-42, Ole
The Bulldogs of Georgia
hit the road to face the Ala-
bama Crimson Tide. Something
tells me that Nick Saban is go-
ing to have the Tide in the hunt
this year. Alabama will roll over
Georgia, 31-22.
The Jaguars will be off to
the Mile High City to take on the
Denver Broncos. Unfortunately
for the Jaguars, the Broncos are
2-0 and looking like a solid play-
off team already. The Jags are
not. Denver 24 to Jacksonville's
Raines at Baker County. The
Wildcats will be ready to play on
Friday night. Assuming a healthy


Lucious Lee is on the field the
Wildcats should be able to run
the ball and control the clock.
Look for Baker High's strength
to be a factor. I'm picking the
Cats, 26 -20.
Finally, I have to mention
that while football season is tak-
ing center stage, the Chase for
the Nextel Cup is underway after
this past weekend's race in New
Hampshire. Look for Jimmie
Johnson, Tony Stewart, and Jeff
Gordon to pull away from the
pack early in the Chase.
Jeff Gordon has been out in
front of the points standings all
year long, and I believe hie is
hungrier than ever for his fifth.
Cup Championship.
Don't expect Stewart and
Johnson to go down easily, but
look for Gordon to drive hard for
this championship.
I'll be here. again next week.
Don't forget, if you have a take
on sports, send an e-mail to me at

Ashley Holton did an excellent
job offensively, and defensive

This week contained a some-
what bizarre note for the Lady
Wildcats when traveled to Green
Cove Springs on September 17
to take on the Clay Blue Dev-
ils. But instead of playing a real
match, the girls played an exhi-
bition game due because referees
did not show up.
Coach Chris Armoreda claims
that should constitute a forfeit,
since the home team is respon-
sible for officials. Nonetheless,


In youth football this past
week, the Packers beat the Jag-
uars, 13-6.
For the packers, Cooper
Hodges carried the ball 10 times
for an impressive 155 yards

TDs. Will Rhoden contributed
35 yards on eight carries, and
Christian Watkins chipped in
with four carries and 20 yards.
Jesse;, Ta \lotl contributed: .the

For the Jaguars, Jacob Per-

only touchdown, and it came on
a 59-yard run. Kenneth Davis
added 45 yards on 10 carries and
Savoy Jefferson pitched in with
five yards on three carries.

BCHS played a best two-of-
three match with the respective
JV coaches officiating the game.
Baker beat Clay 2-1 by the scores
of 24-26, 25-12 and 15-8.
"I had told the team before the
game what was going on and it
made them sit back and rest on
their laurels," said Armoreda.
"They did not come out with the
aggressiveness and tenacity they
normally play with. The team
squandered a 24-20 lead in the
first match by playing very slop-
py volleyball. The communica-
tion and poor defensive coverage
lead to the demise,"
Losing the first game was a
real wake-up call for the Wild-
cats. They crushed Clay in the
second game by the score of 25-
12. The back passed the ball with
precision and the passers set up
the hitters for their kills. Brittany
Gray and Ashley Holton both
spiked the ball extremely well.
"Their spikes were so fast and
accurate that Clay had no an-
swer but to watch the ball hit the
ground in front of them," said Ar-
moreda. "The team finally came
alive and played Wildcat vol-
leyball. The girls showed great
poise and character in bouncing

Gators impress, but

Noles depress vs. CU

It was both the sublime and
the ridiculous in college football
this weekend. Unfortunately for
me, the sublime
was the way the
Gators beat the
Tennessee Vol- FA
unteers and the
ridiculous was ROBERT
how my Semi-
noles escaped
with a win at
The quarterback of the Ten-
nessee scout team practiced all
last week in a Superman cape in a
thinly veiled slap at the hype Tim
Tebow is getting. But for most of
the game on Saturday, it looked
as if he should have passed the
cape on to Tebow at the start of
the game.
To say the Gators dominat-
ed all aspects of the game in a
59-20 win is a real understate-
ment. They ran around, over and
through the Vols. The defense ha-
rassed Eric Ainge and shut down
any running threat the Volunteers
might have had.
I As for Tebow, the question
before Saturday was whether he
could live up to the hype. After
all, Western Kentucky and Troy
State are not Tennessee. Granted,
he had two big wins and padded
stats against the Hiltoppers and
the Trojans, but would he per-
form against what the commen-
tators called "the big boys."
The answer was a big yes. He
threw, he ran and showed poise.
He looked like the real deal and
the Gators looked like they de-
served their ranking.
SOn a slightly different tan-


gent, do you know who I really
would like to see play in a bowl
game? Florida and West Virginia.
I've watched all
the top teams
except USC
LADY this season,
and UF and the
'GERARD Mountaineers
are the two fast-
est teams I've
seen. These
two playing each other would be
nothing but a blur.
As for the Seminoles,
they've been nothing but a bore.
Granted, they defeated Colorado
on Saturday and only a late Buf-
filo score stopped the shutout,
but it was the defense that shone
for FSU. The offense? Well they
really haven't shown up since
Chris Weinke graduated.
They have looked about as
anemic as the Jaguars offensive-
ly. They can't run consistently,
they can't throw consistently, de-
spite having very talent and very
quick receivers.
Drew Weatherford actually is
the fifth-ranked passer in school
history, but it has been a quiet
amassing of yards. It is clear to
a huge FSU fan like me why the
team is called the most overrated
college team of the decade. Com-
pare these guys to the FSU teams
of the eighties and nineties and
well there is no comparison.
Though the Noles are 2-1 on
the season, with the brunt of the
ACC schedule ahead of them,
I'm not anxious to see how
it plays out. Please prove me
wrong, because I am thinking a
game over .500.

Runners place 2nd

The Wildcat boys' cross country team ran to a second place finish
at a quad meet in Callahan on Sept. 11. The Cats placed second behind
Fernandina Beach, but ahead of host West Nassau and Yulee in the
meet. The girls' team placed third behind Fernandina and West Nas-
sau, but ahead of Yulee.

place overall finish ahd Shea Raulerson \\as tops for the giirs. Ken-
nedy ran an 18:55 over 3.1 miles and Raulerson came in at 28:07.
Robert Mason placed fourth overall in 19:13 and Alexandria Rohde
was the second top finisher for the girls in 28:12.
Both teams are returning some key runners. Shea Raulerson, Brit-
tany Dale, Guadalupe Campos, Sylvia Sotomayor, Sarah Combs and
Kelsey Dudley are back from last year's squad. The girls have also
added Rohde, Krystal Langeburg and Michelle Lopez.
The boys return Kennedy, Corey Cavanaugh, Robert Mason, Tim-
my Mason, Evan Ward, Chris Holland and John Crawford. The add

"We're looking forward to this season and we're hoping that we can

said Coach Charles Ruise.
The Cats' first home meet is Sept. 25 versus Hilliard at 4:15 pm.
