Children squalled through-
out the September 27 meeting
of the Land Planning Agen-
cy. By the time the LPA ad-
journed, the kids' unhappiness
accurately reflected the mood
of their parents, who had come
to speak against the location of
Baker County's future jail.
The LPA voted 3-1 to rec-
ommend the county commis-
sion approve a requested re-
zoning on 20 acres of land at
the corner of SR-121 and SR-
228. The 20 acres are part of
a larger, 90-acre tract of land
that was purchased by the Bak-
er Correctional Development
Corporation for the location
of a new sheriff's complex.
The county commission will
vote on whether to approve the
re-zoning, from residential to
institutional, at its meeting on
October 15.
The location of the proposed
512-bed jail is controversial
because of its proximity to two
nearby subdivisions, Foxridge
and Timberlane. Richard Whit-
ing, who lives north of the tract
on 121, also argued the facil-
ity would be too close to Mac-
clenny Elementary School.
"It makes no sense at all,"
Mr. Whiting said. "No sense.
It's absolutely ridiculous. We
might need a new jail in Mac-
clenny. But we don't need one
downtown. Do you all have
any idea what riff-raff 500'

Representatives of the
BCDC repeatedly attempted to
assure residents that they would
be safe. If approved, the facility
would be more than just a jail.
It would include the county's
911 call center, sheriff's office
and a garage for the sheriff's
vehicles. Danny Thomas, who
works for the corporation, said
Thursday that the jail would
not be visible from the two

the engineering companies and

looking, landscaped, well-de-

Mr. Thomas said. "The safety

The residents remained un-
convinced. Jessica Kittrell, a
Timberlane resident who has
consistently raised concerns
about the facility, was particu-
larly harsh with her words.

Weekend '07

BCSB hearing on jail
The furor over Baker County's jail and sheriff's office was
not restricted to the LPA meeting. Mr. Whiting took his com-
plaints to the Baker County School Board Monday and urged
both the board and those in attendance to speak against the site
of the jail.
"It's beyond me why anyone would want to put a 500-bed
prison adjacent to a downtown community, and personally, I
can't believe this is even being considered," Mr. Whiting said.
Mr. Whiting was representing the Proposed Prison Site Op-
position, a group of nearby residents who have banded together
for the self-described purpose. Superintendent Paula Barton
and board president Dean Griffis said the board would remain
neutral on the issue until further study was completed. Many
residents have expressed concern over the proximity of the pro-
posed site to Macclenny Elementary School.
The school board did agree to hold a special meeting on Oc-
tober 11 for residents to make their concerns known. It will be-
gin at 7:00 pm in the school board meeting room on South Blvd.
in Macclenny.

The Baker County Commis-
sion unanimously approved an
agreement -with the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion Tuesday that will give the
county over $550,000 to re-
surface Odis Yarborough Rd.
According to the agreement,
Baker County will re-sur-

from CR-125 to CR-23C. As
long as the price stays under

Baker County. Anything above

In other business before
the board Tuesday during an
unusually brief meeting that
lasted less than 15 minutes,
commissioners agreed to pay
Gateway Pest Control $7100 a
year for pest control in county
buildings. According to County
Manager Joe Cone, the county
advertised twice for the service
without receiving a response.
The monthly cost to the
county will be .$525. That
breaks down to $64 for the
courthouse, $40 for the ag cen-
ter, $35 for the Emily Taber
Library, $45 for the health de-
partment, $25 for each of the
county's eight firehouses and
costs for other buildings as
The commission also unani-
mously agreed to appoint
David Theus to the Code En-
forcement Board. Mr. Theus,
an English teacher at Baker
County High School, had ex-
pressed interest in joining the
Local Planning Agency but
that board had no openings.
Brian Griffis, an Army vet-
eran who is currently employed
by the Jacksonville-based Gate
Petroleum company, was ap-
pointed as an alternate. Mr.
Griffis recently built a home in
the west Glen St. Mary area.
The commission, decided
against taking any action on a
letter sent by the Bay County
Board of Commissioners ask-
ing for support in its fight
against the county's property
appraiser. According to the
letter, written by Bay County
manager Edwin Smith, several
non-homesteaded properties in
Bay saw their appraisals rise
by up to 300 percent.
The letter says Bay County
intends to contest the tax as-
sessment roll submitted by the
property appraisal, but does
not specify what form of sup-
port it wants from Baker or
any other Florida counties. In
the letter, Mr. Smith calls the

it has its accidents, but its like
everything brightens up when
you hit the city limit."
Residents also said their prop-
erty values would be hurt by the
presence of a jail. Mr. Thomas,
as well as Todd Knabb and Lar-
ry Payne, both members of the
corporation, said they hadn't
studied the possible effects, but
did not believe the jail would
hurt values.
Mr. Payne caused controver-
sy when, toward the end of the
meeting, he urged residents to
set aside their "emotions" and
look at what he believed to be
the facts of the issue.
"I think you have to get away
from the emotional part of this
and I understand your concerns,
but think about this: how many
escapes have you heard, relative
to prisons across this country
now, not just here, in the last
S100 [years,]." he said.
Mr. Payne was interrupted by
a woman who said, "It just takes
one." Mr. Payne responded by
saying, "Well, you can be emo-
tional like that."
The LPA's recommendation
is not final and the board is di-
rected to mainly consider only
the legal and bureaucratic issues
facing re-zoning requests, not
policy problems. At the county

Former resident charged

with the murder of his wife
A former Baker County resident was jailed September 28 in Nassau
County, charged with the murder of his wife last January, a month after
he rescued her and their young son from their burning mobile home
near Bryceville.
The arrest of Michael Ratley, 26, followed an investigation that
spanned from January 27 when his wife Effie was taken unconscious
from her in-law's residence to Shands Jacksonville, where she re-
mained in a coma four days before dying. She sustained a laceration to
the head that police later said was suspicious.
Her death came just over a month after the couple's home was de-
stroyed by fire believed at the time to have been caused by faulty wir-
The couple's son was then two-weeks old. A judge placed him
in the temporary custody of his maternal grandmother following an
emergency hearing last Friday.
Mr. Ratley is a 2002 graduate of Baker County High School.

In October of 1789, the
French Revolution was stag-
nant. The ideals of July had
been overcome by that simplest
of forces: hunger. There was no
bread to be had, and the situation
in Paris was desperate. So, one
day, a mob of Parisian women
protested in the streets.
Soon, the protest turned into
a march on the royal palace of
Versailles. There, the women
demanded that Louis XVI return
with them to Paris and provide
them with bread. When he didn't
respond quickly enough, the
women, now joined by a large
number of male revolutionaries,
stormed the palace and hacked
to death several guards. The
royal family was taken back to
The lesson here is that the old
saying, "Hell hath no fury like
a woman scorned" can be sim-
plified to this: don't make mom
mad. The members of the Baker
Correctional Development Cor-
poration appear to have done
just that. May God have mercy
on their souls.
This space will not be used to
upbraid the BCDC for its tactics
in trying to build a new county
jail. It will not be used to urge
the mothers who spoke against
the jail Thursday to abandon
their positions for the good of
the county. It will, instead, be
used to acknowledge the fact
that in this debate, there are no
easy answers.
.It will also be used to ac-
knowledge the role this news-
paper has played in creating the
current atmosphere. The fami-
lies that came to the Land Plan-
ning Agency on Thursday feel
deceived. The fact that no one
really lied to them, per se, isn't
relevant. Jessica Kittrell, per-
haps the strongest voice in op-
position among the nearby resi-
dents, was told when she bought
her house that nothing would be
built behind her home.
Now, the county is not re-
sponsible for what realtors tell
its citizens. But the feelings of
Ms. Kittrell and the other resi-
dents are understandable. This
newspaper reported on May 31
that the BCDC was looking to
place the new sheriff's complex
at the corer of SR-121 and SR-
228 just'north of Macclenny. It
was information we had known
for some time, but had withheld
at the request of the sheriff's of-

Whether that decision was
right or wrong is, for the mo-
ment, irrelevant. And the fact
that it would be a fascinating
ethical discussion in an aca-
demic environment is of little
consequence to the angry fami-
lies. What matters is that local
media's decision to acquiesece
to the sheriff's request is now
contributing to the feeling of
distrust felt by those families.
The other side of this debate is
the reality that the current jail in
Baker County is taxed. Accord-
ing to the BCDC, the jail rou-
tinely holds 160-180 prisoners,
despite carrying a capacity of
about 120 prisoners. And there's
another essential truth at work
here: no one wants a jail near
their home, but jails have to be
located somewhere. And finding
a location that's both close to
the courthouse (a neccessity for
a county jail) and sufficiently
far away from residential areas
is well-nigh impossible.
The BCDC sees the potential
for a safer jail and a new source
of revenue in Baker County. The
residents see the potential for
fresh horror stories to be played
out in their back yards. And
when those residents look at the
corporation, they see a group of
people who are callously risking
their children's lives for the sake
of money from the federal gov-

Those things did not happen.

galvanize the national psyche

complacent in the prosperous

I am arrogant enough, how-
ever, to offer the following
two pieces of advice. There is
a yawning abyss separating the
two sides. At this point, it sim-
ply cannot be bridged at LPA or
county commission hearings. If
there's any hope for a truly posi-
tive solution, representatives
from the corporation and the
residents must talk. Otherwise,
the county commission cham-
bers will be a hostile and bilious
place on October 15.
And for the BCDC, I would
recommend that Larry Payne
not be involved in those dis-
cussions. Mr. Payne, who is a
member of the jail corporation,
clearly means well. But his at-
tempt to grab the intellectual and
logical high ground at the LPA
meeting by urging the residents
to "get away from the emotional
side of this" was an embarrass-
ing misstep. Telling mothers and
fathers to remove emotion from
the equation will inevitably re-
sult not only in failure, but in a
violent backlash.
In many ways, the furor over
Baker County's future jail is a
fascinating affair. But whatever
one's view on the drama playing
out in front of us, it's important
to remember what's at stake for
the actors performing on stage.

Dear Editor:
Many residents and taxpayers
have been seriously question-
ing the location of the proposed
$40 million, 512-bed new county
jail (prison) supported by Sher-
iff Joey Dobson and the Baker
County Commission.
The proposed location near
the comer of SRs 121 and 288
has been selected as the site, and
the cost of the property is $3 mil-
In my opinion, the site is total-
ly unacceptable and inappropri-
ate for a facility that size five
times the size of the present sher-
iff's complex. Located in the im-
mediate area are hundreds of pri-
vate residences, the Macclenny
Elementary school, two day care
centers and four churches.
From the proposed site, it
takes 45 seconds to drive to
Macclenny Elementary School
and the Children's Elite Day
Care school next door. Some of

the churches and the day care
center are even closer. Just from
these items alone, the safety of
our children and residents are be-
ing compromised.
Why locate the new jail prac-
tically in downtown Macclenny
again, when thousands of acres
in the county are available for
consideration? Why spend $3
million for the property when the
county already owns other land?
On Monday, October 15 at
5:30 pm, the Baker County Com-
mission will vote on this site. I
plan to be there speaking against
it, and I urge every interested
citizen to attend.
If this site is approved by the
commissioners, it will be a ma-
jor mistake for the residents of
Baker County, one that will have
to be dealt with for many, many

Several weeks ago we had a campaign going to try to get the people
of Baker County to use local companies and medical facilities.
Recently I had hip replacement surgery in Jacksonville, and after-

desired. The lady in charge of nursing was very nice and caring, but
one can't operate a facility that size alone. The attendants were very
rough at handling patients and had nasty attitudes they generally
just didn't care. The wait time for nurses was unreal.
So, I asked to be transferred to Macclenny Nursing and Reab, and
there I got excellent service. The nurses were gentle and kind to pa-
tients, and when I needed something there was no long wait for as-
I'm not the easiest person in the world to live with when I'm sick
or feel bad. But the staff was very considerate of my feelings and my
well-being. The therapy was excellent; they had me up and walking
the very next day. My therapist's name was Will; he was very kind and
considerate, and very thorough.
We all need to support local doctors and medical facilities. The way

'Peaceful, relaxing past time evolves

into a Tuesday afternoon tradition

Press Staff
Just off the stage of the fel-
lowship hall of the Macclenny
United Methodist Church is a
door bearing a small sign that
says "Quilting."
Each Tuesday afternoon, .a
group of ladies meet in this small
room, sitting around a wooden
frame as they chat, piece, cut,
stitch, and knot to their heart's
Under their careful minis-
trations, fabric is transformed
into an attractive and utilitarian
blanket worthy of display in an
art exhibition.
The group was started three
years ago and today a core group
of six ladies consistently carry
on the art of quilting.
According to the group,
church member Ann Combs
instigated interest in forming
a quilting club three years ago.
Other church members donated
materials, supplies and sewing
machines. One woman's hus-
band studied an existing quilt
frame, then constructed one for
the group's use.
The quilters all agree that the
practice is peaceful and relax-
"When I have a needle in my
hand, or I'm at the machine,
nothing bothers me," said Bar-
bara Lee. "It's such an escape.
For one and a half hours there
is no phone, television or family
Shirley Nettles echoes that
sentiment. "Everything else just
disappears. I can do this 12-14
hours a day," she said.
The group produces several
full size quilts annually, which
are raffled off during church
functions or bid on through si-
lent auction. The money raised
goes back into the community
through charitable donations.
The quilts can bring in anywhere
from $250-$1500.
"I remember a quilt that
brought in $1500," says Ms. Net-
tles. "It was entirely hand-sewn
with a maple leaf pattern."
Quilts are produced by stitch-
ing a cloth top, which is usually
decorative, to a bottom cloth

with a layer of "batting" be-
tween. Today's batting is usually
a polyester blend, but tradition-
ally it was cotton, wool or silk.
Often wool blankets were used
for the middle batting layer. The
ends of the cloths are rolled in
scroll fashion onto two ribs of
the quilt frame which holds ev-
erything stationary and allows
stitching from both sides.
The quilt top is made by
many methods and employs a
wide variety of decorative fea-
tures. A method called "piecing"
is common. Different colored
and printed cloth is measured
and cut into different sized seg-
ments, then pieced together in
the desired pattern, such as Dou-
ble Wedding Ring, Lone Star,
Flower Basket and Log Cabin.
Applique, embroidery and other
decorative embellishment can
be used.
"There are literally thousands
of patterns," said Ms. Nettles.
Quilts traditionally were sewn
and stitched by hand, but mod-
ern quilters are employing sew-
ing machines more and more.
According to the ladies there
are "long arm machines" avail-
able which allow a quilt to be
sewn together in a fraction of
the time it takes by hand. The
machines can even be pre-pro-
grammed to stitch specific pat-
terns onto the quilt.
"I am really impressed by the
art quilts you are seeing so much
of today," said Ms. Lee. "The
textile artists can literally paint a
scene with cloth. One that really
impressed me was at an exhibit
and looked like an aquarium
with plants and fish. I'll never
forget it."
Quilting did not become a
common craft in the Americas
until the mid-nineteenth century
when machine woven textiles
freed the masses from the time-
consuming practices of spinning
and weaving. Quilting evolved
into a social custom, often done
in groups, and allowed the quil-
ters, predominately women,
a treasured means of artistic
expression. The quilts indeed
served the practical, utilitarian
function of keeping a family

warm, but were also produced to
commemorate special occasions
like marriage, birth pf a child, a
significant historical or cultural
event, or as a gift from a com-
munity to a visiting dignitary.
Quilting is an ancient art. The
word quilt" is derived from the
Latin culcita which was a pad-
ded, tied mattress similar to a
Japanese futon. Early quilting
was predominate in decorative
wall hangings and clothing.
Strong, quilted clothing was
worn by knights under their ar-
mor and the method was used to
produce exquisitely decorated
ecclesiastical garments worn by
the clergy. In France among the
upper classes, quilting of ladies
petticoats became so elaborate
'that it was fashionable to wear

beautiful designs of the under-

Couple accused


perfume with

worthless check
Police said September 26 that
charges would be filed against
a Macclenny man and Jackson-
ville woman after employees
at Walgreens claimed that they
stole perfume they had tried to
pay for with a bad check.
According to the manager at
the store, Kevin Carroll, 38, and
Shannen Millard, 26, were seen
on surveillance footage attempt-
ing to buy two bottles of per-
fume with a check. The manager
said that when the two were told
their check was no good, they
placed the perfume bottles in the
man's pocket.
Deputy Gavin Sweat said he
obtained Ms. Millard's address
from the bad check. However,
when the deputy arrived at the
SR-121 address, he was told that
Ms. Millard had moved to West
Macclenny Ave. There, the offi-
cer was told that she had moved
to Jacksonville.
The officer noted that on
October 1 Ms. Millard called
him and placed the blame for
the theft on Mr. Carroll, whom
the officer was unable to reach.
He said charges would be filed
against both individuals.
In other incidents, Macclen-
ny resident Derek Daniels said
September 28 that a tree stand
was stolen from his home on
Harley Thrift Rd. According to
Mr. Daniels, he followed foot
tracks leading from his home to
another on East Riverside Dr.
Mr. Daniels said that the
owner of the home told him that
Jason Collett, 23, was camping
on the property. Mr. Collett de-
nied taking the stand.
Deputy Erik Deloach spoke
with Melody. Collett, Jason's
mother. According to the officer,
her son admitted to taking the
stand with the intention of sell-
ing it. Police were unable to lo-
cate Mr. Collett, but said charges
of petty theft would be filed.
SA 14-year-old middle school
student said September 27 her
purse was stolen from the hall-

Store owner charged

in $9000 credit fraud

A Glen St. Mary store owner
is charged with felony credit
card fraud for allegedly running
up $9000 worth of charges on
the account of a customer.
Talina Broughman, 34, changed
her story several times when in-
terviewed by sheriff's investiga-
tors in the days leading up to her
arrest on September 18.
She is the owner of Trindie
Treasurers on US 90 west of the
town limits.
The sheriff's department first
began looking into the case fol-
lowing a complaint by Ann
Padgett, also of Glen, that her
credit card account turned up
with $4000 in unauthorized pur-
Ms. Broughman initially told
Investigator Steve Harvey the
purchases, consisting of purses,
were made by a person named
Madiline Stoke.
She was unable to describe
Ms. Stoke, and said the "knock-
off' purses were ordered over the
phone and picked up by a daugh-
ter, who she also did not know.
The owner told police further
that she did not ask for identifica-
tion from the customer and con-
tinued to submit the credit card
number and other information

via telephone.
The suspect gave varying
versions of the initial story dur-
ing interviews leading up to her
arrest, and Investigator Harvey
notes in his report that a compar-
ison of sales slips with store in-
ventory showed the purses were
still in stock.
Police then concluded Ms.
Stoke was fictional, and Ms.
Broughman was fraudulently tal-
lying up sales using Ms. Padgett's
account number.
The victim said she visited
the store only once, on August
8, and purchased $428 worth of
merchandise. She used her credit
card and that was the sole trans-
action that month.
By the date of the arrest, Ms.
Padgett learned the total of frad-
ulent charges on that account had
risen to $9000.
The investigator said Ms.
Broughman is also wanted in
Duval County on two warrants
for worthless checks.

Wildcats reign in homecoming game

Baker County explodes with huge

rushing performance to beatRidgeview

Panthers, 42-14 athomecoming

Press staff
On a night when Baker
County had no passing game,
the Wildcats instead leaned on
an effective rushing attack and
their defense' in order to beat
Ridgeview, 42-14.
Quarterback Carlos Holton
completed just two passes in
10 attempts, threw an intercep-
tion in the endzone and fumbled
once. But the Wildcats racked
up 537 yards on the ground and
were paced by Harold Moore,
who earned 138 yards on just
nine carries.
"I guess your definition of
'encouraging' is what the ques-
tion is," head coach Bobby Johns
said. "Encouraging in that, with
the passing game not working at
all, we were able to run the foot-
ball. [There's] nothing encour-
aging about the way we blocked
on our passes. We did a terrible
job of protecting. We did a ter-
rible job of throwing it."
Coach Johns said Monday
that the Wildcats' passing game
hadn't improved over the course
of the season. As a result, he
said, the team would make some
adjustments when they threw the
ball. According to Coach Johns,
Baker County would try to take pay for its aerial struggle

vert a fourth-and-one from their
own 30-yard line on the opening
drive of the game. The Wildcats
stopped cold Ridgeview's at-
tempt to run for the first down
and took over deep in Ridgeview
territory. A few plays later,.
Holton ran the option beauti-
fully and was not touched as he
scampered into the. endzone for
a 35-yard touchdown. The Wild-
cats got yet another extra point
and led 7-0.
After the Panthers went three-
and-out on the next drive, the
Cats capitalized with a 69-yard
touchdown rumble from Hank
Farmer. This time, Baker Coun-
ty missed the extra point.
Though the Wildcats forced
another three and out, their sub-


sequent drive was a tale of near
misses and frustration.. Holton
returned the punt for a touch-
down, only to see the play nulli-

fied by a block in the back. The
quarterback set his team up for
another score when he raced
21-yards to the Ridgeview four-
yard line, but his interception in
the endzone ended the drive.

forced','. another three-:ind-out
and, on the subsequent drive, got
a nine-yard touchdown run from
Greg Williams. After the two-
point conversation, the Wildcats
led 21-0.
Ridgeview never seriously
challenged the Wildcats Friday
night. The Panthers came into
the game with an impressive,
shotgun-oriented passing attack.

But Ridgeview QB
Derek Hatcher was
held to just 147 yards
passing after throwing
for 365 yards the week
before. While Coach
Johns wasn't happy
that his team allowed
two late touchdowns to
the Panthers, the Wild-
cats did well against
the first pass-heavy,
multiple receiver of-
fense they had faced
,*: this year.
S "We practice to
try and prepare for
[passing] .teams every
week," Coach Johns
said. "If we don't pre-
pare for them as the
season goes along,
S when we get to that
game, we won't be
: ready for it. What it
Sdid for us, it gave us a
Chance to see, to really
evaluate where we are
in our pass defense.
"We didn't play
bad. I was very dis-
Sappointed during the
game that we gave up
PORTS.COMtwo big pass plays on
one-on-one coverage.
When you go back
and look, most of their passes
were short, underneath stuff that
we made good breaks on. They
catch the ball for five yards, we
made the tackle."
The Wildcats are 5-0, 1-0 in
their district, but they're enter-
ing what in many ways is the
meat of their schedule. Baker
County faces three straight road
contests, two against district
opponents, and one against fai-
away Ocala Vanguard. If the
Wildcats can slip through the
road trip without a loss, they'll
be in outstanding position. But it
projects to be a tough road.
"I'm more confident than
I was last year at this point,"
Coach Johns said. "We've still
got a long way to go. As far as

the mental side of things, I think
this team has got a pretty good
bit of confidence in itself right

Coaching, community support

big kcy for successful Wildcats


Mike Crews

Two years ago, the Baker
County Wildcats lost in their fifth
game to the Ridgeview Panthers.
At the time, their record was 0-
5, and they eventually would end
the season 0-10.
This season the reverse is true.
The Wildcats are coming off a
42-14 win over the Ridgeview
Panthers and begin the 2007 sea-
son 5-0.
An undefeated 2007 is there
for the taking, but still a lot of
football waits to be played.
Two years two different
Being around the Wildcats
as long as I have, you come to
understand that there are many
reasons why a turnaround for the
team is not so difficult to under-
Let's diagnose the three keys
I believe are helping the Wildcats
to such a successful season:
#1 Players It has been said
that Jimmy's and Joe's are better
than x's and o's. I won't go that
far, but in order to have a good
football team, you've got to have
your share of good players. The
Wildcats certainly have a few
play makers this year, but more
importantly a ton of depth. Baker
High has nearly 100 players who
suit up each week for the JV and
varsity squads.
#2 Coaching I couldn't men-
tion the players without mention-
ing the coaches. To use the word
coaching, though, doesn't really
do justice. Being around the pro-

gram this year, you realize excel-
lence begins with the head coach
and funnels down through the
assistants, playersand fans. This
coaching staff eats and sleeps
Preparation and planning are
the keys to success in all walks
of life, and football is no differ-
ent. Drive by the high school on
a Saturday morning at around
7:00, and you can see the com-
This type of planning and
commitment separates the upper
echelon from the rest of the pack.
This coaching staff is committed
to making the Wildcats a part of
the upper class in Florida high
school football.
#3 Community involve-
ment. In small towns all over the
country, the only show in town
on Friday nights is the local high
school football team.
More importantly, in many of
these small towns, the locals em-
brace the team, and want to be a
part of the team's success. Mac-
clenny is no different. This com-
munity has always supported
the team, there is no questioning
This year, though, you can
sense a difference. Two weeks
ago against Raines High School
of Jacksonville, I witnessed one
of the biggest home crowds I can
remember, and the community
followed that this past Friday
with a great showing against
The community is backing
this team, players and coaches.
Some would say winning is the
key ingredient. By the looks
of things, winning will be no
stranger to this Cat team, and
teams to come.
Inside of these three keys,
there are many, many, other con-

Jackson Tigers are a


Going into the 2007 football
season, if you were to pick a game
that could be key to a successful
season, this week's match-up of
the Baker High Wildcats and the
Jackson Tigers would be the one
to come up in red. The Tigers
won the district title three of the
past four years, and are always a
dangerous team.
Andrew Jackson lost most of
its offense and defense to gradu-
ation, but that doesn't mean that
they are a team to be taken light-
ly. They are big and quick, with
plenty of offensive weapons.
What they haven't had this
season is consistency. The Ti-
gers are 3-2, beating Englewood,
Clay and Forrest. But they have
a pair of losses, 28-7 to Charlton
County, Ga. and a shocking 17-
15 defeat at the hands of Bishop
Though they haven't the ar-
senal that they had in previous
years, it would be unwise to
minimize the threat posed by
Jackson. That seems to be one
of the things Coach Bobby Johns
has preached to his Wildcats this
season. They didn't look past
Ridgeview during the craziness
That is homecoming week, and its
doubtful they will do that versus
Jackson. If you can't get up for
a three-time district champion,
you can't get up for anyone.
The Tigers are platooning a
pair of quarterbacks Cory
Addison shares time with Nigel
Mitchell. Both can be dangerous
and are pretty accurate throwing
the ball. They have a good re-
ceiver,in Bernard Dawson, and
fullback Emmett Diamond can
catch the ball coming out of the


__i J:_yJ' dtjconi

Baker County



Antonio Lenton has been the
Tigers' most potent threat out of
the backfield. Chris Campbell
can also run with some power.
Most of the Tigers' experience
comes on the defensive side of
the ball. Nine of eleven offensive
starters are new, and Coach Kev-
in Sullivan will need a big game
from his defense if he hopes to
stop the Wildcats' high-powered
running game.
Jackson hasn't faced a team
quite as explosive as BCHS. Last
week against Forrest, the Tigers
forced three turnovers. They
got a quick edge when Johnnie
Daniels recovered a fumble- on
the opening kickoff. This led to
a touchdown pass from Addison
to Diamond for the first score.
Derek Owens picked off a pair
of passes against Forrest.
BCHS comes into the game
unbeaten and on a high note. The
Cats rushed for over 523 yards
against Ridgeview and poten-
tially could have had a shutout
except for a pair of late scores.
The Cats have equaled last
season's win total, and Coach
Johns will be pushing hard to
surpass it this week with a big
district win over the Tigers.

tributors that have the Wildcats
poised for success this year, but
I would need a book to outline
them all. Let's just say that when
you think back at this team's suc-
cess, think of those three things:
players, coaching, and communi-
ty involvement. It almost sounds
too easy, but if you take a look
around the area you'll notice the
difference, and understand why
this Wildcat team may be one
that we'll all be talking about for
years to come.
This week's picks:
Let's just say this past week
wasn't one of my best. At least
I picked the Wildcat game cor-
rectly, and that should keep most
of us happy.
-Baker County at Jackson:
The Wildcats are getting
healthy at the right time, and
gearing up for a key district run.
Only five games remain this sea-
son, and the Cats have their eyes
on the prize. Wildcats win the
-Florida at LSU:
Even with my orange and
blue blood flowing, I can't see
the Gators winning this game.
The Tigers are #1 in the country
this week, and the Gators were
embarrassed at home by Auburn
this past week. I'm picking LSU,
but hoping for the Gators.
-Georgia at Tennessee: Bull-
dogs win on the road.

Upset alert! Upset alert! South

(FWC) wants to make it clear to
all muzzleloader hunters not
all muzzleloaders are created
equal. Some of the new models
do not meet the legal definition
of guns authorized for use dur-

The two most asked questions
are whether muzzleloaders with

is legal for use in Florida during

The legal types of guns for

frontline hitters and blockers did
a great job offensively and de-
fensively. The weak part of the
Cat lineup is the back row.
"We are just not rotating our
defense and some players are
standing around waving at the
ball instead of giving up their
body," said Coach Amoreda. "In
order for us to be successful like
the other good teams we have
faced, our back row players need
to step it up and do their part."
Armoreda hasn't been happy
with the defensive effort, al-
though he isn't assigning the
blame to the entire team. "Our
setter, Cassie Kennedy and
frontline players who play the
back row do what they need to
do. Our back row players need to
play better and have confidence
in what they do," said the coach.

Autopsy ordered to

determine death cause

of a Sandrson woman

The sheriff's department is
investigating the death of a 29-
year-old Sanderson woman who
did not complain of illness or
show any visible wounds.
Amanda Bijeaux, 29, was
found lying in bed unresponsive
on September 24 by her mother
Sheila Bijeaux. She found her
daughter around 6:45 am. Res-
cue personnel pronounced Ms.
Bijeaux dead at 7:16 am, ac-
cording to a police report.
Sheila Bijeaux said her
daughter had not complained
of illness before going to bed
at around midnight. Police say
they found no visible wounds on
her body. Her body was sent to
the medical examiner's office in
Gainesville for an autopsy.
In other reports, police ar-
rested a Sanderson man after his
wife accused him of hitting her
in the face.
Kathleen Whitener told po-
lice she was arguing with her
husband Enrique Villatora, 40,
at their home on Tom Wilkerson
Rd. when she placed her hands
over his mouth in an effort to
silence him. According to Ms.
Whitener, he then turned around
and punched her in the face.
The accused said that he ac-
cidentally struck his wife with
his elbow after she placed her
hands over his mouth. Mr. Vil-
latora was charged with battery.
Deputy Garrett Bennett said in
his report that charges of battery
would be filed against Ms. Whit-
ener through the state attorney's
office "due to the fact she is sev-
en months pregnant and had no
one to supervise her child."
*A Sanderson man was named
in a sworn complain after his
wife accused him of threatening

her with a muzzle-loaded rifle.
Brenda Burnsed told Deputy
John Hardin that her husband
Richard, 52, threatened to "blow

Mr. Burnsed admitted to going
to his wife's home, but only to

Police are looking for Sand-

man, 18, after a 61-year-old man
accused him of threatening him

David Newell said Mr. Hoff-
man walked in front of his house
that evening, and his dog ap-
proached the accused. When the
older man called to the dog, Mr.
Hoffman said he thought he was
yelling at him. According to Mr.
Newell, Mr. Hoffman pulled up
a shirt, grabbed a pistol and said,
"You don't want none of this,
old man."
Mr. Newell also alleges that
Mr. Hoffman returned later with
a hammer and tried to entice him
into fighting. Police said they
could not locate Mr. Hoffman,
but indicated a sworn complaint
would be filed through the state
attorney's office.

rested a Glen St. Mary woman
after her husband accused her of
stabbing him in the arm.
Sandrine Cales, 34, called
police to her home on Clete

her husband Scott was inside the
house "acting crazy." Deputy
Tony Norman said the woman

He was my friend
God knew what a great father
he was to his children on earth
So He wanted him in Heaven to
Our father was loved in Heaven
as he was on earth. How lucky
they are to have him forever,
and someday we will be togeth-
er again in Heaven and forever.
So bye for now Daddy.
When I see you again there will
be no more tears, only happi-
ness. Until thenLord, please
take good care of the father that
took such good care of his fam-
ily, and was so loved here on
earth and will sadly be missed.

In Memory
Jimmie Osteen
If we could have a lifetime wish
and one dream that could come
We would pray to God with all
our hearts, just to see and speak
with you.
A thousand words won't bring
you back, we know because we
tried. And neither will a million
tears, 'we know because we've
You've left behind our broken
hearts and precious memories
too, but we've never wanted
memories, we only wanted you.

civic groups such as Rotary,

Women routinely purchase the
dictionaries and distribute them
to local schools.
The project was spearheaded
in 1992 by the volunteer efforts
of Annie Plummer of Savannah,
Georgia, who in her lifetime
raised money to supply 17,000
dictionaries to school children
in her community.
Her efforts evolved into

The Baker County Rotar-
ians seek to encourage children
to improve their reading abil-
ity and assist teachers in turn-
ing students into active readers.
Providing dictionaries supports
Reading in the Park, the club's
other literacy activity.
The dictionaries contain a lot
more than just words and defi-
nitions. In each is a copy of the
Declaration of Independence,
the United States Constitution,
maps of the seven continents,
information about each state, bi-
ographies of the US presidents,
a list of weights and measures,
and even facts about the eight

English language, an enzyme
that has 267 amino acids and
takes 1909 letters to spell!
The dictionaries, which fea-

stickers inside the book jacket
that say, "Best wishes from the
Rotary Club of Baker Coun-
ty" and contain a space for the
child's name.
Rotary member and former
club president Joel Barber has
a lot of personal enthusiasm for
handing out the books to young
"Receiving tne oooks seems
to mean a lot to the students and
I think it makes a good impres-
sion on them about reading," he
says. "I've had some come into
my store [Gibson-McDonald
Furniture] afterwards with their
parents and they remember me.
They say 'Hey, you're that dic-
tionary man. I still have the book
you gave me and I use it, too."'

Pumpkin Patch' now

an annual faltradition

Press Staff
The Pumpkin Patch opens October 3rd at the United Methodist
Church of Macclenny and pumpkins of every shape and size will be
available for purchase through the end of the month.
According to volunteer Karen Hughes, there will be nearly 3000
of the bright orange squashes displayed on the Fifth Street lot across
from the church. That number is higher than last year.
According to Ms. Hughes, the pumpkin crop was sparse last year,
but the .local patch had such good sales, the supplier sent triple the
amount for the '07 event. The Pumpkin Patch is an annual effort
sponsored by the church to raise money for its missions trips. This is
the ninth year it has been held.
The pumpkins are grown on a Navajo reservation near Farming-
ton, New Mexico and are shipped east to Florida.
The large tractor trailer-truck arrived about 3:00 pm last Mon-
day and even in the rain, a cadre of enthusiastic volunteers formed a
"bucket brigade" line to unload the first 1300 pumpkins of the ship-
Some were loaded into wheel barrows and pushed to locations
around the lot. Jim Havercamp arrived with his bright orange front-
end loader and ferried loads of pumpkins back and forth as volunteers
arranged them in patterns accessible to foot traffic.
"We leave these paths so folks can get up close and easily pick out
the one they want," said a volunteer.
Volunteers Edna Dean and Dot Shephard have helped every year
since the event started.
"I love it and look forward to it all year," said Ms. Dean. "It's a lot
of fun and it's a good project for the community," said Ms. Sheph-
Both ladies say they love seeing how delighted the school children
are when they visit:
A visit to The Pumpkin Patch has become a popular field trip for
many school children in Macclenny because volunteers dress up in
costumes and put on talks and presentations. For those who cannot
make the trip, volunteers travel into the schools, present a fun pro-
gram and have miniature pumpkins available for sale at the special
price of fifty cents.
"That helps ensure that every child gets a pumpkin," said Ms.
The Pumpkin Patch is so colorfully decorated that many parents
bring their children specifically to photograph them in front of the au-
tumn harvest displays. A new feature this year will be a huge brightly
colored wooden turkey made by Bill and Barbara Cooper and their
"The turkey's body will be a large roll of hay," said Ms. Cooper. "It
will be a good backdrop for a photo."
What happens to leftover pumpkins? Some go to the state hospital
and local nursing facilities and are used to make pumpkin pie. Others
that might be just starting to go bad are given to local farmers to feed
The Pumpkin Patch will be open daily starting Oct. 3; hours are:
11:00-7:00 Monday-Friday; 10:00-6:00, Saturday and 1:00-5:00 on
Sunday. The event ends Oct. 31.
