inDRI

BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
Traffic continues to be the
main point of contention in
discussions between Adrian
Development Group and Bak-
er County over the viability of
the Cedar Creek DRI.
Adrian, a Miami-based
company, responded to initial
concerns over the proposed
retirement community north of
US 90 between Glen St. Mary
and Margaretta soon after they
were set down on paper in late
July. That was the first step of
what the state calls "sufficiency
review," where state and local
agencies submit comments and
concerns to the developer and
ask the company to assuage
their worries.
But Adrian's response has
seemingly failed to ameliorate
the concerns of Baker County
and the Florida Department of
Transportation.
DOT was unswayed by'
Adrian's claim that the devel-
opment promotes public trans-
portation, saying in a report
filed to the county, "... We re-
ject this approach, and we do
not believe this development
x ill provide public transporta-
tion that-will meet the require-
ments of the law." According to
the state, statistics indicate that
older Americans rely heavily
on cars for transportation. As
such, the department seems
skeptical that Cedar Creek res-
idents will "convert from auto-
mobiles to transit users."
Cedar Creek is a planned
community concept develop-
ment that eventually expand
to 7000 residences of varying
types with a target market
in the over-55 set. The DRI
(development of regional im-
pact) process is required in
Florida before projects of this
size are approved, ultimately
by the county of origin.
The state also says that most
of Cedar Creek's proposed ad-
ditions to improve quality of
life (shopping centers, offices,
a movie theater) would not be
within walking distance of the
populace.
All of which means that the
DOT remains intensely inter-
ested in how Adrian plans to
integrate Cedar Creek into the
local road network. The state
says that I-10 interchanges at
SR-121, SR-228, CR-125,CR-
229 and US-90 will be severely
impacted by the development.
Baker County's Planning
and Zoning Director, Ed Pres-
ton, said Monday that Adrian
could largely dictate the time-
table for its response. Accord-
ing to Mr. Preston, Adrian has
indicated that they plan to re-

Wildcats ren
In front of a sell-out crowd at Memorial Stadium
Friday, the Wildcat football team pulled
off a close win over district foe Raines,
28-21. The fans, dressed all in red, per
head coach Bobby Johns' request, were
treated to an outstanding performance by
several Wildcats. At right, school groups
like the Rhythmettes and marching Wild-
cats did their part to keep up the excite-
ment level. Baker County even got four
extra points, an impressive feat for a team
that had previously been unable to convert
a PAT. The win brings Baker County to 4-0
going into next week's homecoming game
against Ridgeview. See story on page 6.

'Buddy Check'


as her life-saver


Jeannette Scott left her home recently to
run some errands. As she walked to her car
she thought to herself "Wow, it's really cool
out here today." That's when the Glen St.
Mary resident remembered she had forgot-
ten to put on her hair.
Ms. Scott was diag-
nosed with cancer back in
July and is currently under- By

rosebud decoration over
a wig band of shoulder-
length brown hair.
She credits First Coast New's Buddy
Check 12 program with motivating her to be-
gin monthly breast examinations, something
she had never done even though her mother
had cancer.
The vivacious, 37-year-old mother of two
teenagers had always understood she should
be checking herself, but somehow never got
around to it. Back in May, when viewing the
Buddy Check 12 program, which was spear-
headed a decade ago by Jacksonville televi-
sion anchor Jeannie Blaylock, the message
finally took hold and she began the self-ex-
aminations.
Three months later, when there had nev-
er been any hint of something wrong, Ms.
Scott bumped her chest as she was getting
into bed and doubled over from the sharp
pain that shot through her body. The pain
lasted five full minutes, then was gone and
did not return. Subsequent self examinations


were painless and
yielded nothing
suspicious to the
touch.
'I had recently
lost 40 pounds
and my body had
changed and I
thought the spot

Ms. Scott. "But
something in my
subconscious just
wouldn't let it
go. I made an ap-
pointment to have
it checked."
That turned
out to be a wise
decision. A se-
ries of diagnostic
mammograms,
ultra-sounds and a
biopsy uncovered c
the unfortunate
truth. Ms. Scott
tested positive and
a cancerous cyst was discovered.
"Mine was invasive and grade 3 the fast-
est growing type," she said.
The good news was that the cancer was
diagnosed early at stage 1 and did not involve
any lymph nodes. She also tested 99% nega-
tive for the "breast cancer gene" mutation
which was usually positive in people with

her type of cancer. The 1% that was negative
was a miniscule spot that was considered in-
consequential.
Because of a deep Christian faith she be-
lieves that divine intervention was at work
and that God took care of the breast cancer
gene problem. She views the tiny spot as

Jail site


rezoning


ok'd by


planner
BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
Baker County's planning
staff is recommending the
county approve re-zoning on
the possible site of a new jail.
The Baker Correctional De-
velopment Corporation, found-
ed in late 2006 to work through
the process of building a new
jail and sheriff's complex, is
hoping to build the facility on a
90-acre tract of land at the cor-
ner of SR-121 and SR-228. The
first step is asking the county
to approve re-zoning on a 20-
acre portion of the land on the
northeast part of the property.
The corporation will re-zone
the remaining 70 acres later;
any re-zoning request over 20
acres requires a large-scale re-
zoning, and that's a laborious
process involving state input.
By contrast, if everything goes
according to the BCDC's plan,
the corporation could have the
20 acres re-zoned by October
15, when the full county com-
mission will consider the re-
quest.
The recommendation by Ed
Preston, the county's Planning
and Zoning Director, is not
binding. The Land Planning
Agency will meet at 7:00 pm
on September 27 to determine
if it will recommend the county
commission approve or reject
the request.
Mr. Preston said September
21 that he had received a "hand-
ful of phone calls" regarding
the facility's site. The location
is controversial because of its
proximity to the Timberlane
and Foxridge subdivisions.
Some residents have said the
jail and sheriff's complex pres-
ent a danger to families.
"[Those] were concerns,"
Mr. Preston said. "In fact,
we've measured how far the
proposed site is from the ex-,
isting site. And I even did an
analysis, for myself I didn't
save it where I drew an arc
around the existing facility and
an arc around the proposed fa-
cility. And there's about half
as many residential units in-
side the new arc as in the old
arc. And there have not been
any kind of issues raised from
residential neighbors to the ex-
isting facility that have been
problematic."
Mr. Preston said that a pre-
liminary traffic analysis indi-
cated there would be few prob-
lems with traffic congestion at
the new site.
But even if the corporation
is able to successfully navigate
its way through local govern-
ment, the fate of the new com-
plex will be decided by the
open market. If the BCDC is
unable to sell $40 million in
bonds to finance the project,
nothing will be built. The cor-
poration should begin selling
the bonds within a couple of
months, and the BCDC has a
January 31 deadline to deter-
mine whether or not to cancel
its contact on the land.
Officials with the jail's
non-profit board have taken
pains to emphasize that they
are not simply building a jail.
The county would move its

(From page 1)
"God's fingerprint" left behind
as if to say, "I was here. This is
what I did."
Surgery was scheduled to
remove the cancerous cyst and
chemotherapy began.
Knowing she would be losing
her hair, Ms. Scott decided to do-
nate it to Locks of Love, a public
non-profit organization that pro-
vides hairpieces to financially
disadvantaged children under
age 18 suffering from long-term
medical hair loss from any diag-
nosis.
"I'd always worn my hair
long," said Ms. Scott. "But I
knew that one day it would
grow back. Others will not be so
lucky."
She had her hair cut very
short. When it began to come
out in "patches" she went for a
buzz cut. Her husband was in-
structed by a professional on us-
ing the shears and helped give
her a military "do."
"Tea tree oil helps with the
itchiness of dry scalp," Ms. Scott
recommends. "And you should
see my five o'clock shadow after
about a week."
Ms. Scott credits her family
in particular for helping her get
through the challenge. When
she's depressed over her appear-
ance, Daughter Sarah sings in a
goofy voice "You are so beau-
tiful to me," to cheer her up.
When her energy reserves are
low right after chemo, son Justin
steps in and takes over whatever
needs to be done. Being particu-
larly sensitive to his mother's
feelings, 15-year-old Justin was
very upset once when he acci-
dentally broke his mother's blow
dryer. That reduced Ms. Scott
to laughter.
"I just looked at him and said,
'Son you don't need to worry
about it. It's not like I really need
that right now."'
Both siblings help out with
housework, vacuuming and


cleaning the bathrooms regu-
larly. Members of their Harvest
Baptist Church congregation in
Jacksonville are always avail-
able to offer help and support.
"My cancer corner is re-
ally therapeutic, too," says Ms.
Scott.
She created a special corner
in her home where she can re-
treat when things just become
too much. She has a stool, a
blanket and a small library of
uplifting materials furnished by
the hospital and American Can-
cer Society.
This is where she retreats and
allows herself to feel hurt, sad-
ness, pain, frustration, even an-
ger. It's here she cries and gets
it out of her system, then gets on
with her daily life.
Ms. Scott believes a sense of
humor is vital. A lady's tea is be-
ing planned at her church to help
raise money, and she's allowing
her head to be painted.
"The object is to paint the
prettiest picture," she' explains,
"Each artist pays a fee for the
privilege of using my head as
the canvas."
Cancer hasn't really slowed
down this active mother who
home schools her children and
is an ardent football fan. She has
always been seen running up and
down on the sidelines playing
cheerleader at her son's sport-
ing events. She'll soon be back
to that, too,,she claims, although
moving more slowly.
Ms. Scott has come to view
her cancer as just "a bump in the
road" and tries to maintain a re-
alistic perspective. She now re-
alizes that all the little irritating
things don't matter at all.
"We weren't promised to-
morrow," she says. "Who cares
if your husband squeezes the
toothpaste in the middle of the
tube, or there are some clothes
lying on the floor? Since we
weren't promised tomorrow,
what counts is our today."

spond to this second round of
sufficiency by mid-November.
After the developer issues its
second round of responses, au-
thorities will begin making de-
cisions. The Northeast Florida
Regional Planning Council in
Jacksonville will issue a rec-
ommendation to Baker County,
after they have had a chance to
review Adrian's answers. Upon
receiving that recommendation,
the county will say yes, no or is-
sue a tentative yes that depends
on Adrian meeting certain con-
ditions.
Even if Baker County ap-
proves the DRI itself, the pro-
cess won't be over. The DRI
would require a change in Baker
County's comprehensive plan,
and that in turn must pass mus-
ter by the Florida Department
of Community Affairs.
All of this remains a long
way in the future. Back in July,
Ed Lehmann, the Regional Plan-
ning Council's director of plan-
ning and zoning, said the DRI
was roughly eight months away
from a yes/no vote in Baker
County.
The proposed retirement
community has been contro-
versial ever since it first came
before the Baker County Com-
mission in November of 2006.
At that meeting, commissioners
voted against transmitting the
proposal to the state.
But on March .19, the com-


mission unanimously agreed to
transmit the DRI to the state,
persuaded in part by the way
Adrian had managed to sway
nearby residents both east and
west of the 3000 acre footprint
north of US 90 who had initial-
ly opposed the retirement com-
munity.
Adrian plans to build out the
development over a decade or
so, with the residential units, a
commercial "town center" and
various amenities.

entire sheriff's office to the site.
The jail itself will contain 512
beds to house local and federal
prisoners. The corporation is
hoping to receive contracts to
house prisoners from the Immi-
gration and Customs Enforce-
ment Agency and thus provide
the county with another source
of revenue. But while ICE offi-
cials has repeatedly assured the
county that such contracts will
be available, they have stopped
short of issuing guarantees.

pumped a lot of money into pro-

Dirty, Sexy, Money. They haven't

I am anxious to see returnees
from last season like Heroes and
Bones and My Name is Earl.
Others are new and appealing
like the aforementioned Chuck,
Journeyman and The Bionic
Woman.
Chuck is about a loser geek
who stumbles onto national
security information and be-
comes a spy. There are a lot of
"loser geek" television shows,
prompted by the success of Ugly
Betty and movies like Superbad.
This loser geek is accompanied
by a really hot babe spy. That's
why we know its television and
not real life. In real life, unless
you're rich like Bill Gates, loser
geeks are accompanied by more
loser geeks. It's part of the evolu-
tionary pattern.
Journeyman is about a guy
who inadvertently keeps travel-

ala Quantum Leap. He doesn't
know why or who he is supposed
to help. I love time travel stuff.

happened to me, I wouldn't be

put her back together they give
her titanium legs and X-ray eyes

course, if that ever happened to
me, they'd put me back together
using parts from China. Before
I could be discharged from the
hospital I'd be recalled for parts
that fall off and are coated with
lead paint. Instead of that cool
bionic sound that happened ev-
ery time Lindsay Wagner was
going to do something super,
I'd probably have that annoying
UPS truck beep every time I had
to back up.
Then there are the really lousy
shows. The television networks
already know how' lousy they
are and aren't publicizing them.
In fact the head programmers
are now probably scratching
their heads and saying to them-
selves: "I knew I shouldn't have
set the network schedule when I
was hopped up on Red Bull and

When you're hopped up on
Red Bull and cheap wine, it sud-

mercial. Haven't they learned
anything by watching all the
really horrible movies based on
two-minute Saturday Night Live

Hope you enjoy them...
Dear Editor:
To the sorry creep who stole my flashing driveway markers off CR
127, I hope you enjoy them.
My daughter and infant granddaughter recently moved from the city
to the country, and she was having trouble navigating the driveway and
staying out of the ditch. My husband and I thought those markers were
the perfect solution, until you stole them!
I suppose the Lord will now light the path. Enjoy!

The folks who made this aw-
ful program are saying i it is a sat-
ire on racial profiling and bigot-
ry. Hmmm. You mean that there
isn't enough real racial profiling
and bigotry in the world that
you'd have to invent a bunch of
television commercial cavemen?
At least you could have used that
charming British gecko.
Carpoolers. It's about a bunch
of carpoolers in LA. We know
this is television for the simple
fact that there are no carpoolers
in LA. I can hear the scintillating
dialogue now.
"So, what are you doing after
work?"
"Well, my kid has a soccer
match and my wife has a PTO
meeting."
"Yeah. I'll probably go home
and watch Caveman."
"Great idea. I've been looking
forward to that one."
Now that's entertainment.
There's another new show
called Samantha Who? Okay.
Well .. hmm. I really can't think
of anything funny to write about
it? That's because until I checked
the ABC lineup on-line, I had
never heard of Samantha Who?
Maybe I should just invent my
own television shows.
In the pilot of CSI Baxter, in-

DNA, he discovers it isn't really
a crime it's dinner.
On Wednesday's episode of

There you have it.

A sea of red poured through
the open double doors. The young
men wore shiny red jerseys with
white numbers
that hugged their
trim, muscular TH E
bodies.
The Baker POI
County Wild-
cats filed in, ex- KELLEY L
hibiting a quiet
dignity unusual
for such a large group of athletes
assembled, in one place. They
took their seats at the long rows
of tables decorated with gold tro-
phies and metallic star confetti
strewn across red table cloths
and set with red plates and cups.
The tempting aroma of grilling
steaks drifted in from the kitch-
en. Strains of one of the 70s rock
group Queen's most well-known
songs filled the air:
"We are the champions, my
friend; and we'll keep on fight-
ing to the end ..."
In one corner, on a large
screen television, video ghosts
from a past game ran, punted,
tackled and blocked on a brightly
lit field.
The Wildcats watch them-
selves on the'screen, reliving the
sweet agony of a near-victory over
the Raines Vikings one year ago.
Tonight they play the same
team. Will victory, at last, be
theirs? Will last year's mistakes
breed a nagging, debilitating
doubt or translate into the gritty
determination to claim the prize
and walk off the field wearing
that most coveted mantle of all:
a champion.
A man, smallof stature but
large of presence, stands before
them. The music fades, replaced
by his booming voice.
"There will be over 100 op-
portunities for you to doubt your-
self on that field tonight," E.J.
McKnight states.
He stares the team down, giv-
ing time for the thought to sink
in.
"And if you buy into even one
of them, you're going to lose."
The team members say noth-
ing, but the air is pregnant with
an understated tension.
McKnight continues.
"They're sending you to fin-
ish something, not just to start it.
Anybody can start, but only the


eye-opener
champions will finish..."
Wildcat coach Bobby Johns,


adds a fitting

benediction to the
talk.
"There are
moments in
your life that
define who you
are. Tonight will
surely be one.
Make it what
you will .."


The Wildcats did indeed go
on to victory that night over the
Vikings 28-21, much to the ela-
tion of coach Johns and adoring
friends and family.
Those moments are now re-
corded in their own video, mak-
ing Memorial Field aptly named.
The pictures tell the story. In
one such moment the camera has
frozen the image of running back
Harold Moore sprinting past the
Raines bench after catching a
pass in the second quarter.
The ball rests easy in his right
hand, his posture simultaneously
erect but relaxed, an ease that
comes not with cockiness, but
with confidence and focus.
I'm not a sports fan or a sports
writer. I don't care for large
crowds or loud noise. I don't
watch games on television. You'll
find me at home reading a book
instead of cheering in the stands.
That's the way it's always been.
Yet, ironically, some of my fa,
vorite movies involve sports and
overcoming obstacles.
In the movie Hoosiers, a small-
town high school basketball team
stands inside the empty Butler
University Hinkle Fieldhouse,
the largest arena in the country.
That evening the team will play
there for the Indiana state cham-
pionship.
Intimidated by the arena's vast
size, the team is overwhelmed
and confidence has evaporated.
Using a tape measure, the
coach marks off the size of the
court, then shows the young men
something that changes every-
thing: the court is the same size
as their court at home.
Hoosiers is about a team that
got a second chance to finish
first. The Wildcats entered the
field with the same opportunity
riding on their shoulders and
resting in their hearts.
I think they got the message.

Battery, assault arrest


ofirate husband after


two incidents last week


An angry husband who alleg-
edly threatened twice last week
to kill his wife was arrested
shortly after the second incident
and booked at county jail for bat-
tery and assault.
William (Billy) Bennett, 54,
who on the report by Deputy Erik
Deloach is listed as an officer at
Baker Correctional Institution,
first confronted his wife Darlene,
54, at their residence off Bennett
Lane in Sanderson on September
19.
In an interview at the sheriff's
annex two days later, she ac-
cused Mr. Bennett of twisting her
ears and cheeks before disabling
three phones at the residence to
prevent her from calling police.
OnSeptember21, Ms. Bennett
said her husband returned home
angry and once again threatened
to kill her, this time if she ob-
tained a restraining order. He al-
legedly attempted to prevent her
from leaving the house, but Ms.
Bennett said she grabbed her car
keys and drove off on Fred Har-
vey Rd. to Cow Pen Rd.
The husband chased her in
his pickup, and two witnesses
told police they saw Mr. Bennett
pounding on the windows of his
wife's Cadillac and threatening
to run over her if she didn't roll
down a window.
The accused also told one of
the witnesses to "get his a-- out"
when he attempted to intervene.
Mr. Bennett then drove away and
his wife went to the sheriff's de-
partment.
Later that afternoon, Deputy
Matthew Riegel said he was es-
corting the victim back to her
residence to retrieve personal
property, and he spotted the hus-
band in his white Ford truck near
Harvey and Cow Pen Rds. He
was arrested without incident.
In other cases involving do-
mestic disputes, Brian Snyder,
43, was charged with assault and
resisting an officer following an
argument with his wife Roberta,
46, at their residence off Allen
Acres on September 19.
Deputy James Marker said he
was advised before he arrived at


the scene that Mr. Snyder had a
firearm, a fact confirmed by the
wife. When the officer arrived,
however, it had been placed
in a safe. Ms. Snyder also said
her husband had been drinking
and they argued about which
one would take possession of a
truck.
The second charge resulted
from the accused repeatedly in-
terfering while Deputy Marker
questioned the wife on her ver-
sion of events.
The same afternoon, a crimi-
nal complaint alleging domestic
battery was filed against both a
34-year-old mother and her son,
age 13, following a scuffle over a
cell phone given to the youth by
his father. The two accused each
other of choking and hitting dur-
ing the afternoon confrontation.
A similar complaint resulted
September 22 against Ernest
Smith, 22, of Baldwin, for al-
legedly striking Yasmeen Bones,
20, who she asked for her house
keys. Mr. Smith also choked her
and pushed her to the ground, ac-
cording to the report by Deputy
Jeremy Moran.
Ms. Bones said she saw Mr.
Bones and another man seated in
her car when she approached the
residence off Ohio St. in Mac-
clenny about 11:20 am. The ac-
cused retrieved the keys from a
hidden spot and apparently had
been in the house without Ms.
Bones' knowledge.
Debra Stewart, 40 of Lake
Butler filed a complaint on Sep-
tember 19 accusing niece Joan-
nie Johnson, 24, of Macclenny of
threatening and stalking her sev-
eral times, the result of a year-old
dispute that began when the aunt
refused to allow Ms. Johnson's
boyfriend to stay at her resi-
dence.
Vincent Thomas, 38, of
Jacksonville is accused in a
complaint of threatening Hidies
Akins, 46, with a pocket knife
when the two exchanged words
on King Dr. near McIver about
6:10 pm on September 21. The
alleged victim's four-year-old
son was with him at the time.

Police use foot markings to track


suspect in theft ofjewelry in Glen


A Glen St. Mary resident told
police September 21 that $3,750
in jewelry had been taken from
his home on Kathy Jo Rd.
Richard Godwin said that he
left his home at 6:30 am and
returned just before noon. He
found the rear door damaged
from what appeared to be pry-
ing. Neighbor Michelle Holman
told Deputy Matthew Riegel that
several burglaries had occurred
in the area the night before.
Police say they found foot-
prints leading from Mr. God-
win's home to a home on
Guernsey Rd. nearby. Accord-
ing to police, there they found
a suspect, Ryan Demar, 25, who
was wearing shoes that matched
prints found at the scene.
While Mr. Demar was taken
to the sheriff's annex, Deputy
Riegel picked up a backpack
belonging to Mr. Demar at his
mother's home. The jewelry
taken from Mr. Godwin's home
was found in the backpack, and
the suspect was arrested and
charged with burglary, larceny
and criminal mischief.
In other incidents, Tommy
Simmons of Sanderson said
September 22 he had been the
victim of a home invasion at his
residence on Sanderson Circle.
Mr. Simmons told police he


was awakened by the barking
of his pit bull. When he walked
into his living room, he found a
15-year-old Sanderson resident
he knew. According to Mr. Sim-
mons, the boy began crying and
begging him to not to call the
police. Mr. Simmons said they
would discuss it once he put
some clothes on, but when he
returned from his bed room, the
intruder was gone.
Later that day, Deputy Gavin
Sweat found the 15-year-old
digging a ditch outside his home
on CR 127. The boy told Deputy
Sweat that he was in Mr. Sim-
mons' home only to return some
DVDs. Mr. Simmons denied
that, and the boy was arrested
and charged with burglary.
Macclenny resident Rhonda
Funk said September 19 that she
noticed $845.88 in charges on
her checking account at a Wal-
Mart in Easton, Pa., Ms. Funk
cancelled her debit card.
Todd Ferreira of Macclenny
said September 17 he noticed a
riding lawn mower and a weed
eater missing from a property he
owns on Tim Rhoden Rd. Po-
lice were unable to lift any fin-
gerprints at the scene. The two
items were valued at more than
$1500.


Couple named in complaint


for multiple animal neglect


The county's animal control
department transported a num-
ber of malnourished and neglect-
ed animals off privately owned
property near Sanderson last
week, and criminal complaints
will be filed against their own-
ers.
Animal control officer Geor-
gia Monfort summoned the sher-
iff's department to property off
Seminole Lane owned by Dena
and William Graham early that
afternoon and gained access via
a nearby easement.
There they found that starving
dogs had been eating ducks in a
fenced area; nearby were penned
rabbits and young dogs, sheep,
goats and a calf all showing
physical signs of neglect. Deputy
Gavin Sweat noted no presence
of food or clean water.


The complaint alleges the Gra-
hams, reportedly in Jacksonville
that day, violated a state statute
on animal cruelty, a first-degree
misdemeanor.
In another complaint involv-
ing animals, David Brookshire
said he returned to his residence
off CR 125 late on September 21
and saw several dogs run out of a
fenced area where he keeps live-
stock. The next morning, he dis-
covered his mule had sustained
a laceration to the eye likely
from an attack.
Ms. Monfort and Deputy
James Nickles questioned neigh-
bors on nearby Plantation Rd.
where he saw two of the dogs
running toward the previous
evening, and they insisted their
canines were locked up in the
residence at the time.


Two shoplifting suspects who
insisted they had receipts but
refused to show them drove off
from the parking lot of the Wal-
Mart Supercenter in Macclenny
during the early morning hours
of September 19 [the store is
open 24 hours].
The pair, one of them in a mo-
torized riding cart and the other
pushing a cart, were confronted
by a store employee about 3:00
am, and she told Deputy Jeremy
Moran they had several portable
phones and a box fan in the cart.
When asked to produce a receipt,
the suspects insisted they had
one but did not produce it, then
told the employee a door greet-
er had verified the receipts a
false claim.
They then unloaded the mer-
chandise in a 2000 silver Chev-
rolet and drove south on SR 228.
The employee noted the license
number, and it came back to a
woman in High Springs in Ala-
chua County.
She described the suspects as
black males, one wearing a red
shirt and the other a white shirt
and jeans.
In other reports the past week,


a Jacksonville motorcyclist was
arrested the afternoon of Sep-
tember 19 for driving on a li-
cense that had been suspended
three times.
Deputy Wayne Limbaugh
said he chased the speeding 2001
Suzuki eastbound on Interstate
10 to just east of Glen St. Mary
after clocking it at 90 mph just
west of the US 90 interchange at
Sanderson.
Driver Jason Butler, 21, ad-
mitted to reaching a speed of 130
mph before he was stopped, ac-
cording to the deputy's report.
He was ticketed for speeding and
taken to jail on the suspended li-
cense count revealed via a com-
puter check.
Amanda Mobley, 27, of
Macclenny was arrested for mis-
demeanor possession of marijua-
na after a plastic bag was found
inside her 1989 Nissan after it
was stopped about 10:30 pm on
September 20.
Deputy Claude Hurley said
he stopped the Nissan because it
had but one headlight, and Ms.
Mobley consented to a vehicle
search.


Complaint for tavern assault


Police said September 23 that
charges would be filed against a
Macclenny resident for alleged-
ly attacking another Macclenny
resident.
Lynetha Bones told police that
she was at Club 229 in Sanderson
with her cousin when she began
talking to Brandy Manining, 24.
According to Ms. Bones, Ms.
Manning got hostile and hit her
on the face. Ms. Bones' cousin
broke up the fight.
Ms. Bones alleges that Ms.
Manning followed the two wom-
en out to their car and hit the left
fender with a liquor bottle. Po-
lice said they could not locate
Ms. Manning, but did confirm
that there were scratch marks on
Ms. Bones' face.
In other incidents, Glen St.
Mary resident Jerry Ratliff said
September 21 that his 1994 Ford
Ranger was vandalized while he
was working on another vehicle.
The incident took place on Reid
Stafford Rd.
Mr. Ratliff said the wind-
shield was smashed, the driver's
side window shattered and a
cooler was stolen from the truck
bed. Deputy Greg Burnsed said
he noticed pry marks on the
driver's side door. He also found
tire tracks leaving, the scene of
the crime.


Police are looking into claims
that someone took a baseball bat
to lights at the Michelle Drive
and Wells Rd. entrances of the
Whispering Pines sub-division.
Steven Adkins, a Whispering
Pine resident, said September
22 that he saw two young men
attacking the lights with base-
ball bats. According to Mr. Ad-
kins, one of the men was wear-
ing a baseball cap. The other had
light-colored hair.
And police say that Billy
Burnham admitted September
22 to driving into several mail-
boxes on Deercreek Lane in
Macclenny.
Beth Nichols, a resident in
the area, said that eight mail-
boxes had been knocked down
at the end of her. driveway.!
Deputy Sweat,said that the staff,
at Fraser Hospital told him Mr.
Burnham came into the ER with
a severe laceration on his foot.
According to hospital staff, Mr.
Burnham initially claimed he
tripped over a brick, but later
admitted to crashing into the
mailboxes, only to recant that
confession later.
But according to Deputy
Sweat, Mr. Burnham admitted
to knocking down the mailbox-
es and said he would pay for the
damages.

Nursing home residents donate teddy bears...
This group of residents at Macclenny Rehab and Nursing Center hold teddy bears they made to donate to the Care Bear Program
of the Baker County Sheriff's Department. Several organizations have done so, and deputies keep a supply in their cars to hand
out to children at the scene of accidents and other traumatic events. Pictured above are Claudia Raysin, Osceola Green, Larry
Smith, Amelia Smith, Jacqueline Wolters, Mildred Howell and Johnnie Strickland. The group dedicated the effort to the memory
of the late Melinda Baxley, who initiated it as a means of giving something back to the community.

Truck stolen from in front of home


A Macclenny resident said
September 21 that her 2001 Nis-
san Frontier was stolen from her
home on SR 121 about 11:00
am.
According to Denise An-
gela, she often left the key in
the truck's ignition because the
vehicle was used to take plants
from one end of the property to
another. She said she hadn't giv-
en anyone permission to drive
the car.
In other incidents, Macclen-
ny resident Chad Donaldson
said September 22 that a four-
wheeler belonging to Shamika
Blair, his girlfriend, had been
stolen from their home on Mc-
Iver Ave.
According to Mr. Donaldson,
the vehicle was kept in a fenced-
in area of the back yard. There
was a gate, but it wasn't locked.
None of Mr. Donaldson's neigh-
bors were able to provide any
information.
Joe Newmans of Glen St.
Mary told police September 20
that three vehicles belonging to
him had been burgled. Accord-
ing to Mr.- Newmans, a former
Baker County sheriff, a cell
phone was stolen out from his


car's glove box. The ignition
key for his truck was also stolen,
and a CD player had been taken
out of another car on the prop-
erty off Aunt Mary Harvey Rd.
Police could not find any fin-
ger prints or foot prints at the
scene.
William Griffis, also of Glen,
said September 17 that his util-
ity trailer was stolen from the
front yard of his new home. Mr.
Griffis said the trailer, which
had an expanded metal dump
bed and two broken tail lights,
was taken during the night. The
trailer's left tire is bigger than
the other tires.
Jerry Norman said September
23 a trailer containing 45,000
pounds of scrap aluminum was
taken from a location on S. 6th
St. in Macclenny.
Mr. Norman said the alumi-
num belonged to a Puerto Rican
company called Aluminio Del
Caribe. The man told police that
he had dropped off the trailer on
September 22. When he returned
the next day, it was gone.
The sheriff's department is-
sued citations to Macclenny
resident Aldric McGlashan, 56,


after a witness said he drove into
a utility pole on Bill Davis Rd.
the afternoon of September 22.
According to the witness, a
16-year-old boy, Mr. McGlashan
was speeding northbound and
veered off the road into the pole,
which was broken in half by the
impact. The witness said Mr.
McGlashan was unsteady 'on
his feet and spoke with slurred
,speech.
Deputy Patrick McGauley
contacted Mr. McGlashan the
following day on the basis of the
license plate noted by the wit-
ness, and he admitted to being
in an accident. He denied being
under the influence of alcohol at
the time, and said he drove off,
"Because I didn't know I dam-
aged the telephone pole."

Idcat'raines' on


Lee, Donovan


dazzle fans


at Friday S


districtgame

BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
When Lucious Lee walked,
he limped. When he ran, he daz-
zled.
On the sidelines, Lucious Lee
was a wounded cat. On the field,
he was a guided missile.
Lee was one of the only
weapons in Baker County's ar-
senal Friday night that was truly
effective in the Wildcats' 28-21
win over district foe Raines.
Despite continuing to battle a
hamstring injury he suffered in
the opening classic against West
Nassau, the Baker County run-
ning back piled up 186 yards,
including a 66-yard touchdown
run, on just 12 carries.
Lee went down hard after a
45-yard run in the third quar-
ter and limped off the field. At
times, it looked like he could
barely walk on the sidelines.
But Raines had no answer for
the powerful senior.
"He's tired of sitting on the
bench," Wildcat head coach
Bobby Johns said. "We held
him out last week. And he didn't
get very many carries the week
before. Every time he came out,
[the training staff] stretched him
out-and-ahe'd- get,:back up and
say, 'Coach, I'm ready.' So we
put him back in."
Lee's 66-yard TD run proved
to be the game-winning score.
With the Wildcats up 21-14 in
the third quarter, Lee broke sev-
eral tackles and barrelled down
the middle of the field. Six dif-
ferent Vikings futilely chased
after him. They never got close.
In fact, Lee's first big run
came on Baker County's first
drive of the game. Facing a third

Johns
s a i d.
"Every- :' :i
body kept
saying, :
'When are
we going
to get a kicker?' Well, we aren't
going to get one to move in. So
we kind of kept messing around.
[Donovan] said, 'Coach, I can
kind of kick a little bit.'
"A lot of times, kids can stand
out there and kick field goals with
no rush. The question is, when
they've got 11 guys coming af-


ter them, can they kick them?
And so we worked all week on
rushing him during practice. We
did it every day, put about 14 or
15 kids on defense to come after
him to see if he could handle the
pressure."


With the score at 7-0, Raines
was able to get back in the game
with a wobbly, tipped touch-
down pass. But they couldn't
convert the extra point.
The Wildcats stormed into
halftime with a 21-6 lead, cour-
tesy of another TD run by Holton
and a touchdown pass to tight


end Trek McCollough. Holton
had his most accurate passing
performance of the season, as
he was six of eight for 90 yards,
through the air.
Baker County entered the
season intent on "finishing the
game." While the Cats were able
to do that Friday, their finishing
wasn't flawless. Sitting on a 28-
14 lead with just 6:17 to go in
the game, the Wildcats fumbled
deep in their own territory. On
the subsequent Raines posses-
sion, the Vikings converted a
crucial fourth and six. Soon af-
ter, they punched the ball into
the end zone, and the Wildcats
were clinging to a one touch-
down lead.
But while Baker County
couldn't score on its .nex pos-
session to put the, game away,
they took'the clock do\\n to
1:05, thanks in large part to a 10-
yard pass from Holton to Lee on
third and 10. Things very nearly
collapsed, however, when the
Wildcats went to punt. The long
snap to Holton was well over
the QB/punter's head. But the
senior leaped into the air, caught
the snap and punted the ball to
the Raines 21-yard line.
"That's the one mistake you
can't have is a bad snap," Coach
Johns said. "You've got to make
that play. When I got here last
year, we really didn't have a
punter. And Carlos had never

punted before. I want an athlete
back there that's going to be
calm under pressure. And I usu-
ally try to put my quarterback
back there punting, if he can do
it."
The Vikings' final drive was
something of an anti-climax.
They made a first down on the
first play of the drive. But the
next two plays left Raines in a
third and long situation. The
third down snap \ as furnbled.

"[The crowd] was good,"
Coach Johns said. "It was the
first time I've really seen every-
body excited about what's going
on. And that was really nice to
see."
The Wildcats are now 4-0
and are coming off a big win


against a good team. There's a
lot of optimism surrounding the
program, and rightfully so. But
Coach Johns said he wouldn't

Hurt Lee is inspirational


We gave serious consideration
to naming WR/Kicking Savior
Brendan Donovan our
Man of the Match. Af-
ter all, how often does
Baker County convert
four consecutive ex-
tra points? But upon
further thought, the
choice was obvious, as
reflected in the accom-
panying game story.
Lucious Lee was
nothing short of inspirational
Friday night, rushing for 186
yards on two pain-wracked legs.
Lee, who's been battling a ham-
string injury since the opening
exhibition game against West
Nassau, gutted his way through


the game and carried the Wild-
cats. Lee even caught two pass-
es for 22 yards. Both
receptions resulted in
key third-down con-
versions.
The big run for Lee
was a 66-yard touch-
down rumble down
the middle of the field.
He also added a 45-
yard run and a 20-yard
scamper.
Lee did yeoman's work on
the defensive side of the ball,
as well. If the Wildcats' training
staff can keep Lee healthy, he'll
play a big role in the team's run
for the district playoffs.


Bishop Kenny beatsJackson

The Wildcats got a huge win on Friday when they defeated the
Raines Vikings at home in the first district game of the season. As big
a smile as the Wildcat coaches had on the sidelines after the game, they
had to have gotten even bigger with the news that Bishop Kenny beat
Jackson.
Kenny gave the Wildcats a big advantage in 17-15 win over the Ti-
gers. The difference was the arm of quarterback Brett Whitmire, who
was 11 of 18 passing for 153 yards and two touchdowns.
Whitmire put the Crusaders up 14-7 at the half and held on to win.
They intercepted the Tigers late in the fourth to clinch the final score.
In other Friday contests involving past and future Wildcat oppo-
nents, West Nassau rolled over neighbor Yulee 48-13. Yulee scored
first to surprise the Warriors, but they answered with a 67-yard drive
and then dominated the rest of the game.
Ridgeview quarterback Derek Hatcher passed for 365 yards and two
touchdowns as the Panthers squeaked by Fleming Island 28-21. Rid-
geview stopped a Golden Eagle drive late in the fourth with a fumble
recovery and then ran out the clock to preserve the win.
Suwannee County, the other district foe, was pummeled by the
Cowboys of Madison County 35-0.
Ocala Vanguard lost to Belleview 28-7.










Ridgeview


noteasy for


4-0 Cats

Wildcat football coach Bobby
Johns and coaching staff are sure
to be hoping that the flurry of
homecoming activities this week
won't affect the team's focus. The
4-0 Wildcats will line up against
3-1 Ridgeview on Friday in what
could be a whale of a match.
It often seems that the game is
an afterthought to all the hoopla
that is attached to homecoming
week. But with the Cats sitting
on an undefeated record, Johns
won't want any distractions.
Momentum is a. fickle thing,
and any bump in the road could
adversely affect the rest of the
season. The Wildcats will need
to be at full throttle when they
take on the high-octane Panther
offense.
The Panthers' only loss this
season came at the hands of the
very powerful Bartram Trail
Bears. The Bears shut out Rid-
geview 40-0 in a game that was
not indicative of how Panthers
have played this season.
When he is clicking on all
cylinders, quarterback Derek
Hatcher is a very potent weapon.
He certainly was operating at full
throttle in last weekend's 28-21
victory over Fleming Island.
Hatcher passed for 365 yards
and two touchdowns. He has a
good arm but can be inconsis-
tent; he has receivers who can
catch the ball, and the Wildcat
defense will have to provide a lot
of pressure to keep the passing
game in check.
Defensively, the Panthers
have been up and down. They
struggled against Bartram's
high-powered and balanced of-
fense, but against Fleming Is-
land they put a damper on the
Golden Eagles running game.
They restrained the Eagles' tail-
back Salmon Williams to just 39
yards, and forced the quarterback
to try and win the game. -
The Panthers haven't really
faced a team with the number of
weapons the. Wildcats possess,
with the exception of Bartram
Trail, and that was a blowout.
The Cats will need to play with
the same physical presence they
did against Raines to control the
line of scrimmage, and let the
running game wear down their
opponents.
BCHS came out of the game
physically taxed. It will take
.a couple of days before they
are fully over the effects of last
week's game.
The Wildcats got a big effort
from Lucious Lee and another
strong game from Carlos Holton.
Both will need to be on their
game to beat Ridgeview.

team got its first win of the fall
season with a victory over West

'Heavenly' weekend


for gorging

I am constantly reminded
lately why sports are such a big
part of my life.
As I write this article, I am
re-living in my
head some of FROM
the exciting FROM
events from this
weekend in the 'PRESS
world of sports.
If you're as fa- Mike C
natical as I am,
then this. time
of year is like Christmas, your
birthday, and having a good day
on the golf course all rolled into
one.
At no other time during the
year will my wife (or yours for
that matter) allow me to spend
every waking moment of the
weekend wrapped up in sports
action. But that's just how -I
spent this weekend, and how I
plan to spend the next couple of
months.
Let me share some of the highs
and lows of my sports weekend:
The Baker County Wildcats
began their season 4-0. That's
right, 4-0.
The Raines Vikings came to
town on Friday night, and the
Wildcats were waiting. The game
proved to be as good as the hype,
with the teams trading blows
virtually all night. The Wildcats
were too strong for the Vikings
in the end, and the Cats took an
early lead in the District 3-3A
race with the 28-21 victory.
I had my normal seat for the
game next to my
broadcast partner David
Crummey in the press box. What
we saw was a standing room
only crowd, and an emotionally
charged Wildcat football team. If
the Wildcats can bring this sort of
effort every Friday, they proved
that the playoffs are certainly a
possibility.
On Saturday, I knew I had
to get started early with the Ga-
tors How good is this? Barely
12 hours after the Friday night
action, I was again front-and-
center watching the ball game
- this time from the comfort of
my couch, and not the press box
The Gators were tested, but
went on to win. At this point, the
weekend is moving along quite
nicely.
Many people who have
known me over the years will
probably tell you that, while
football is certainly my passion,
baseball is the game. I follow
the Philadelphia Phillies, and
at times over the years, this has


[


)


on sports

been painful.
But this year I have hope with
only a week left in the season.
As of Sunday night, the Fighting
Phils are only V
game out of the
[ THE National League
wild card race.
B /iC' By the time
you read this
irews column, I hope
they are atop the
standings.
Only time will tell, but again
another reason why I follow
sports religiously.
Finally, on Sunday, the Na-
tional Football League comes
through with ten hours of excite-
ment. You can start the day every
Sunday at 1:00 pm and watch
right up until the 11 o'clock
news. How's that for keeping the
wife happy?
In addition, the Nextel Cup
Chase for'the Championship is in
its second week, and after today
only eight races remain to crown
this year's champ.
Did I mention that I love
sports?
This week's picks
Last week I took a bit of a set-'
back by only getting two right.
That puts my season record at
7-2 so far.
Ridgeview at Baker County
so much for scheduling an easy
win for homecoming. The Pan-
thers are playing good ball, and
come into the game with a re-
cord of 3-1. Last year, the Wild-
cats easily handled the Panthers
on the road. Look for the game
to be closer this year, but I think
the Cats will be 5-0 with a 36-20
win.
-Auburn at Florida boy, the
Gators sure proved they were hu-
man last week. Don't be fooled
into thinking the Tigers have a
chance in this one, though. Last
year, the Tigers were the only
team to beat the Gators on their
way to the title. Florida will have
revenge and a talent edge on
their side, and win convincingly
38-17.
Alabama vs. Florida State
in Jacksonville great match up
of one-loss teams. Look for Ala-
bama to roll in with something to
prove. I just don't buy the Florida
State offense, and this will be the
best team they have faced so far.
Alabama will win at no-name
stadium, 28-13.

team played host to West Nassau
High School and defeated them
in four matches by the scores
of 25-20, 25-19, 16-25 and 26-
24 on September 20. The Lady
Cats were particularly pleased
with the win since it avenges last
year's loss to the Warriors.
"The seniors on the team re-
ally wanted to beat West Nas-
sau because over their four-year
high school career, they were not
able to beat them," said Coach
Chris Armoreda. "I am happy for
them."
Armoreda was philosophi-
cal about the match. While he
was happy the team got the vic-
tory, he didn't feel that they had
played their best ball. "A win is
a win, but we did not bring our
"A" game for this match. We
played right into the slow and
methodical pace of West Nassau


and we made too many errors at
critical points of the game. The
.team is very fortunate to eke out
this victory."
It was the offense that pushed
the victory. Brittany Gray, Tif-
fany Norman and Ashley Holton
led the Cats. Armoteda was par-
ticularly pleased with the play
of Holton, who neutralized West
Nassau's middle hitter with great
blocking. The Lady Cats will be

Flu vaccine should be plentiful locally


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff

The Washington Post reports
that a record amount of flu vac-
cine is expected to be available
nationally this year. The Baker
County Health Department has
geared up to conduct several flu
shot clinics; the first two sched-
uled for October 2 and 9 from
9:00 am until 4:00 pm. A third
date will be announced.
That is welcome news com-
pared the crisis shortfall of vac-
cine many areas of the country
experienced in 2004 due to prob-
lems a key provider had produc-
ing enough viable vaccine to fill
demand.
Due to the quick action of
employees at the local health
department, the county did not
suffer the same 2004 shortages
of vaccine many areas of Florida
experienced. An NPR radio pro-
gram at the time described thou-
sands lining up for the shots,
only to be turned away. Health
professionals warned of looming
crisis situations in hospitals and
emergency rooms with so many
people going unvaccinated, and
federal officials were criticized
for lacking an emergency plan.
"As soon as we got wind that
there was a problem, we didn't
hesitate to identify another
source and reorder the vaccine,"

ion Rainwater from Crossville,
TN and numerous nieces, neph-
ews and friends.
The funeral service was held
Wednesday, September 26 at
Fellowship Baptist Church. In-
terment followed at Fellowship
Baptist Cemetery. The arrange-
ments are under the direction of
V. Todd Ferreira Funeral Servic-
es, Macclenny.

Sincere thanks
My goodness, how do I thank
the whole community for being
so kind and thoughtful through
my accident. I have had such
wonderful friends and family,
old and new to come and see me
in the hospital and at home. So
many prayers have been said for
me throughout the city, state and
far away. My gratitude is cer-
tainly a humbling experience.
God truly knows how thankful
I am for every word of every
prayer. I could feel the presence
of our Lord every time I woke
up. These encounters with ev-
eryone will always hold a very
special place in my heart and
soul.
For the people who read this,
please know that I am very sin-
cere in what I say. Somewhere
in your life today try to show
God's' love. The realness of
our Lord is so true that I want
to be able to tell everyone just
how simple it is to find out what
"real" means.
Thank to the Baker County
sheriff's department, the emer-
gency medical services of Baker .
County and the fire depart-
ments.
Again, I thank everyone who
prayed for me, sent cards, flow-
ers, phone calls and all the deli-
cious food.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU EVERYONE!
LOVE, ARLENE AND TOMMY RAULERSON
AND FAMILY

Thanks everyone
The family of Fred (Bunny)
Combs, would like to thank ev-
eryone for their words of com-
fort, their prayers, their cards
and for their donations made to
his beloved little church in the
mountains. Fred (Bunny) was
a loving husband, a wonderful
daddy and an incredible man.
Our hearts are broken and we
have a huge void in our lives.
We pray to the Lord to teach us
to set our hopes on heaven, to
hold firmly to the promises of
eternal life, so that we can with-
stand the struggles and storms
of this world.
May God's holy word be
a soothing medicine to the
wounded heart. One day when
we get to heaven, we will wrap
our arms around him and never
have to let him go again.
MAY GOD BLESS US ALL!
THE FAMILY OF FRED (BUNNY) COMBS

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday September 27, 2007 Page 11


In Loving Memory
of
Seab Rhoden
3/15/86-9/29/06
It's been one year since you've
been gone, but our love for you
is still very strong.
Your face we love is missing,
your voice we know is still.
A place is vacant in all our
hearts, that only you could fill.
A thousand times we needed
you, a thousand times we cried.
If love alone could have saved
you, you never would have
died.
A heart of gold stopped beating,
two blue eyes closed to rest.
God broke our hearts, to prove
He could take the best.
Never a day goes by that you're
not in our hearts and souls, but
our love for you we will cherish
and always hold.
WE LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH,
MOM, DAD, BRANDI, SHANE
AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY

Returns to his

hometown for

church revival
The First Baptist Church of
Olustee will hold revival servic-
es beginning Sunday, Septem-
ber 30th at 11:00 am and 6:00
pm, and continuing at 7:00 pm
nightly through Wednesday, Oc-
tober 3rd. The guest speaker will
be evangelist James Croft, who
lives in Olustee. Each service
will also feature special music.
This will be Croft's first re-
vival appearance in his home-
town. He currently travels as a
full-time evangelist throughout
the South and maintains a min-
istry in Ghana, West Africa. To
learn more about his ministries,
which includes online videos
and a monthly Podcast, visit his
website at www.jamescroft.org.
For more information or di-
rections to the church, call Pas-
tor Mike Williams at (386) 719-
8868.
In Memory
of
Jimmie Osteen
8/25/54-9/28/06
The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that
God was going to call you home.
In life we loved you dearly, in
death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the
day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
And though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and
nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us one by one
The Chain will link again.
THANKS TO EVERYONE AT UCI, RMC, NERCI
AND EVERGREEN BAPTIST FOR ALL YOUR
PRAYERS.
THE FAMILY OF JIMMIE OSTEEN

'Down on the Farm' fair Oct. 5-13


will feature
"Down on the Farm" is the
theme of the 2007 Baker County
Fair which opens Friday, Octo-
ber 5 and runs through Saturday,
October 13.
Fair Association president.
Cathy Rhoden remembers work-
ing on her grandfather's farm
during the summer as a child.
To her, it seemed farming kept a
family together.
"Nowadays, if you ask a child
where eggs or milk comes from
they tell you Winn-Dixie," she
says with a chuckle.
Ms. Rhoden hopes Baker
County families will bring their
children to the fair to see where
these products really come from
- hence the fair's theme.
A highlight of this year's fair
will be an antique tractor exhibit
featuring tractors from all over
the country. There will be a trac-
tor pull event to showthat tt these
old workhorses can still hold
their own in the field.
According to Ms. Rhoden,
one major difference this year
will be the absence of the rodeo.
Funds usually allocated for the
rodeo events went toward spon-
soring an illusion and escape
show featuring master illusionist
Kevin Ridgeway and America's
premier female escape artist,
Kristen Johnson. Fair goers can
watch in full view as a bound


her move!
The ever popular Disc-Con-
nected K-9s will be around
again to dazzle kids and grown-
ups alike.
"This act is so popular," says
Ms. Rhoden. "Everybody en-
joys the amazing antics of those
dogs."
The Great Little Bear Show
showcases the talents of trained
bears and their German Shep-
herd buddies. Jeanette Rix grew
