will cause

traffic and

water woes
BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
The state of Florida isn't
thrilled with the plans for the
Baker Commons commercial
center across from Wal-Mart
on SR-228. And it wants the
developer and the city of Mac-
clenny to re-do its projections.
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs recently
rejected the city's proposed
amendments to its comprehen-
sive plan. In developments of
this size, cities and counties
are obligated to make zoning
changes, and the DCA gets a
veto. In a letter dated October
3, the DCA said its objections
to the Baker Commons com-
mercial development centered
largely on traffic and water-
availability.
The city is confident it can
answer any water questions
once it receives state permis-
sion to expand its capacity.
Traffic analysis, however, is
handled by the developer,
Florida LLC, and the DCA is
not convinced Baker Com-
mons will be able to fit in to the
area's traffic situation.
"The City has also not used a
professional\ accepted meth-
odology in determining the'
number of pass-by trips that
would occur on the impacted
roadways," DCA's letter said.
"The analysis submitted by the
City identified a link on State
Road 228 between Interstate
and the Project Entrance that
will fail by the year 2017"'
The Planned Unit Develop-
ment, or PUD, would occupy
94 acres on SR-228 and have
at its center a "big box" retail
store. 'Chain restaurants and
hotels are tentatively planned
for the development, which has
also met with ample resistance
from nearby residents.
City manager Gerald Dop-
son expressed some mild an-
noyance with DCA's decision
at the Macclenny city commis-
sion's monthly meeting Octo-
ber 9.
"I'm not accusing anyone
of anything, but it sounds like
[the state is] sending two dif-
ferent messages," Mr. Dopson
said. "'We need to allow Baker
County to get in the game,' but
by the same token, it looks like
they're finding ways for the
permitting process'that kind of,
you know..."
He cut himself off there.
Mayor Gary Dopson said later
that funding in the Florida Leg-
islature was controlled by "four
or five big counties," and that
Baker County often received
short shrift in Tallahassee.
Manager Dopson said he
will meet with representatives

New thisyear a the fair three local collectors


cranking up'enthusiasm for antique tractors

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Two 1929 Allis Chalmers, v
a 1950 Ford 8N, a 1952 1040
Speedex and a 1963 Oliver 550
are just a few of the, farm ma-
chines displayed by the North
Florida Antique Power and -
Tractor Club at the 2007 Baker ,
County Fair. .
A trio of Baker County resi- "
dents, Greg Sheppard, Doug
Scott and Jack Watson, started '
the organization in 1999. There i
are currently 14 members who'
all share a passion for older
tractors and farm equipment.
"Our interest grew out of a
lifelong affiliation with farm-
ing and a love of the equipment
from the early and mid- 20th
century," said member Greg
Sheppard, who refers to him-
self as the club's "head weed
picker."
The term "antique power"
refers to stationary engines that
predated tractors, but ran farm
equipment such as threshers

CEB is


opting


for new


penalties

BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
Violators of the county's
zoning ordinances will now
likely have to pay $85 in ad-
ministrative costs.
The Baker County Code
Enforcement Board decided
by a 6-1 vote Monday to estab-
lish that number as the coun-
ty's administrative costs for
dealing with code complaints.
The figure includes the cost of
board attorney John Broling's,
time and of the paperwork and
postage associated with such
complaints.
The move Monday was a
part of a larger effort by the
CEB to streamline and reduce
costs of its operation. At its
last meeting September 10, the
board unanimously decided to
charge administrative costs to
those who violate the county's
zoning ordinances. It also de-
cided at that time to eliminate
one of, the steps the board's
staff took in the process of tak-
ing an initial, complaint to a
CEB meeting.
The board members spent
much. of Monday's meeting
discussing the timing of the
administrative fine and how it
would be levied. But Chair-
man Jim McGauley eventually
pointed out that those deci-
sions had already been made at
the September 10 meeting, Un-
der the policy established then,
once a violator is given notice
that his case is coming before
the board, he has until a week
before the CEB's meeting to
bring his property into compli-
ance. If he doesn't meet that
deadline, he will be charged
the $85 administrative fine.
Once the violation case is
presented to CEB and deter-
mined to be a violation, addi-
tional costs for failure to cor-
rect it beyond a certain date
apply, including a daily fine for
up to 180 days. The code board
is authorized to seek liens on
property for unpaid fines.
While it was not immedi-
ately clear whether those pol-
icy changes would require the
approval of the county com-
mission, the board decided to
notify the commissioners of
the decisions and ask for their
approval. The CEB hopes to
present its decision on the
commission's agenda during
its meeting on October 15.
The board handled one case
Monday, unanimously decid-
ing to give Deerfield Circle

Two injured in collision

ofsemi, car on SR 121
The wreckage of the 2006 Nissan at left following the
collision between it and a Wal-Mart tractor trailer the
afternoon of October 5 suggests far greater injuries than
those suffered by driver Crystal Sheffield, 32, of Glen St.
Mary. Trooper DL. Myers said Ms. Sheffield was wear-
ing a seat belt when her northbound car hydroplaned
on the wet surface of 121 near the entrance of North-
east Florida State Hospital. It rotated into the path of a
southbound 2007 International (right) driven by Barry
McFarland, 57, of The Villages in central Florida. He
received minor injuries, and Ms. Sheffield serious inju-
ries; both were treated at Fraser Hospital. There were no
passengers in either vehicle when the accident occurred
about 12:45 pm. Charges pendfurther investigation.

and hay baler-. They were fueled
by kerosene and used 2/3 stroke
engines with external flywheels
that generated just enough power
to keep the engine running.
Advances in engine design
resulted in internal flywheels,
which all the tractors in the ex-
hibit have.
Each year, Mr. Sheppard
plants a 20-acre garden and uses
his 1950 Ford 600 for breaking
ground, plow-
ing, planting and U-
weeding. He ..
wouldn't have it
any other way. "
"What I ap- :. ..
preciate is the ,
simplicity and ...
efficiency," he
says.''"Folks back
then didn't use iJ"
the huge amounts :
of pesticides so .:'
common today. I
hitch up my cul-
tivator and sweep
and it cuts the
weeds out very
cleanly."
Mr. Scott SethSc
keeps his tractors
mostly for show
at exhibits. His Allis Chalmers
Model U is consistently the ear-
liest model in regional antique
tractor club shows.
According to Mr. Scott, Allis
Chalmers and Firestone collabo-
rated in 1929 and developed and
fitted tractors with the first rub-
ber tires.
Lacking electrical power, the
tractor must be hand-cranked to
start.
Mr. Scott demonstrates: "You
shift out of gear, turn on the gas,
pull the choke and usually two


.i1.


s passionate

cranks fires it off."
The tractor roars to life and a
belt pulley, used to run auxiliary
farm equipment, spins rapidly.
"To turn it off you just cut the
gas," he says. "When it runs out
it just shuts off. No gunk in the
carburetor either"
Jack Watson considers his
1950 Ford 8N a member of his
family. Bought by his great-
grandfather, it has been passed
on to his grandfather, father, his
mother, himself and will go to


his grandson one day.
"I remember my Mom pullin'
on this little straw hat, hopping
up on this tractor and going to
work. I use it constantly. It's like
an old friend."
Mr. Watson points out fea-
tures that make his Ford tractor
unusual. A Sherman gear allows
the engine to be shifted by 1/2
gear degrees, allowing slower
and more powerful force. His
is the only tractor he has come
across in recent times with this
feature. As he understands it,
tractors fitted with the Sher-

man gear were used to remove
wrecked planes from aircraft
carriers during WWII.
Another unique feature is that
although the tractor was manu-
factured during the 1950s, its
three point hitch still allows it to
use plows, discs, box.blades, cul-
tivators and bush hogs of mod-
ern design.
This tractor has been in my
family for 56 years," he says.
"The only other thing I love as
much is my Harley."
Mr. Scott is pleased that an-
other generation in his family is
growing up to appreciate the an-
tique equipment. His four-year-
old grandson Seth spends a lot
of time on the Allison Chalmers
with him and has an almost en-
cyclopedic .knowledge of trac-
tors.
"Ask him the name of any-
thing out here and he will tell
you. I think he has learned a lot


SMacclen


from all the shows and exhibits
we take him to."
Young Seth has his own
Speedex, a diminutive tractor
with a plow manufactured in the
early 1950s and used primar-
ily for gardens on small plots of
land. His goal however, is to be
big enough to operate his grand-
mother's Allis Chalmers Model
B tractor.
The club hopes to organize a
tractor drive and BBQ event in
the near future with the help of
the Baker County sheriff's de-
partment. They believe it would
be a fun and memorable activity
for the community.
The tractor pull, which was
to take place last weekend at the
fairgrounds, was canceled due
to rain. It has been rescheduled
for later in the week. For more
information, call Greg Sheppard
at 229-6728.

i-"Mr. Wright had initially come
before the board in May, 2006
on a similar violation, but he was
ruled to be in compliance when
he constructed a particle board
fence in his back yard to obscure
the refuse. This time, however,
it was alleged that lawn mower
and lawn mower parts were
strewn across his lawn.
Mr. Wright said Monday that
he intended to construct a chain-
link fence with plastic sheeting
to obscure views of his yard.
The defendant, who works as a
security guard, said money was


tight and that he'd have to build
the fence in sections. The board
approved the fence, but also sug-
gested that he could accomplish
much of his goal by taking the
lawn mower partsold tires and
other refuse to a junk yard.

communication flow often


There's a time-honored "first
day of class" exercise teachers
use to break the ice and teach
students a few
things about
the power of MPr
the spoken IMPRT
word and how
information JIMMcG
gets passed
around.
Two students are chosen and
instructed to act out a scene in
front of a third student all
three of them removed physi-
cally from the rest of the class.
Typically it goes something like
this: one approaches another
and shouts something at him or
her, then the "aggressor" puts
the second student in a headlock
or takes some form of physical
action. This is done in the pres-
ence of the third student brought
in as an observer.
The third student then re-en-
ters the classroom and whispers
what he or she saw to a fourth
student, and so on until the
"message" is passed to everyone
- one by one.
What do you think happens?
It's no surprise that when the
final student stands up and tells
the class what he or she was just
told, it bares little or no resem-
blance to the original scenario.
In the filtering process the
'subjective interpretation if you
will, what starts out isn't what
emerges tainted by bias, inat-
tentiveness to detail or simply
adapting something to one's
own vision of a singular act.
The classroom lesson is re-
ally a life lesson.
Fast forward to mid-week
last week.
What was initially reported
to police as an abduction from
a Glen St. Mary convenience
store and subsequent rape ex-
ploded into a variety of versions
that spread by word of mouth
"jungle drums" throughout
the community.


s

I,


It morphed by late Wednes-
day, after everyone had an op-
portunity to discuss it on "church
night," into
a gang rape
Outside the
SIONS parking lot of
McDonald's
AULEY in Macclen-
ny. Then it
was two girls
who were raped. Then it was a
serial rapist who had been loose
in Baker County for several
weeks. Then it was a rape in the
parking lot of Baker High dur-
ing the day.
And so on.
It turns out the original rape
report was a hoax; a high school
girl possibly attempting to cover
her tracks after being with an
older male her parents report-
edly didn't like.
It's great that it was a hoax;
that means a 16-year-old doesn't
have to endure the life-scarring
trauma. She may still be trauma-
tized by the shunning of fellow
students and friends, but that's
another matter.
Many people got the time
wrong [the report came on a
Wednesday afternoon]. Several
who contacted us declared con-
fidently the "rape" happened the
previous weekend, or before the
newspaper hit the streets. Why,
they queried, wasn't it in the pa-
per?
One person e-mailed to de-
clare a serial rapist in our midst,
and hinted strongly at a cabal
between the sheriff's depart-
ment and the Press to keep it out
of the public eye. We'll call that
the "conspiratorial" response.
That's about as likely as the
theory held by some residents
of northeast Macclenny who are
convinced we conspired with
the sheriff's department to with-
hold the fact that a site off CR
228 was being considered for a
new jail.
I guess the plan was to keep it


is corrupted
under wraps until it was a "done
deal."
They know little about media
ethics and even less about zon-
ing procedures.
A rumor can go around the
world with lightning speed be-
fore the truth manages to get
down the block. Last week's
rape scare was a textbook ex-
ample, fueled partly by fear that
we're losing our "small town"
where things like that are very
rare.
Everyone's glad the story was
false. All of us who participated
in it by re-telling something as
fact should remember it because
it will surely happen again.

Fight nursing
Dear Editor:
I am writing in response to the
very gracious letter from Mary
Smith regarding the care she re-
ceived at the Macclenny Nursing
and Rehab Center. We enjoyed
serving her and are very gratified
to know that she was so pleased
with the care that she would write
such a wonderful letter.
On a more important note, I
want to make everyone aware
of the fact that the governor and
state legislature are meeting to
determine budget cuts. It is un-
fortunate that, after all the work
Aaron Bean and other legislators
did to help the nursing homes of
Florida receive increases in the
amount of money paid to pro-
vide the kind of care Mrs. Smith
enjoyed, we,must now face the
prospect of having that money
cut back.
I would urge everyone to
write, call or e-mail Governor
Crist and other state legislators
and tell them to not cut nursing


More candidates than Iowa residents


The new census is out and
the most surprising thing is that
the state of Iowa has almost
doubled in population the past
six months. The only thing I can
imagine is the jump is a result of
all the presidential candidates,
their handlers
and the news ir Si
media flooding M Y SI
the state.
There are as THEM
many politicos
as there are lo- ROBERT
wans.
SBy my infor-
mal count there are at least 800
people running for the presiden-
cy. I can't understand why.
Before he became president,
George Bush was a pretty well-
liked guy, a "Bubba" you'd
invite over for a tailgate party
before the big game on Sunday
afternoon. He'd sit around with
your friends and talk football
and trucks. Now? Well, I'm
afraid he'd suggest a troop surge
for the Jaguar offense.
Before he became president,
Bill Clinton had brown hair and
amused himself by flirting with'
the counter help at the Little
Rock McDonald's while he or-
dered thiee Big Macs and two
large fries. Now, he has snow
white hair. and Saturday Night
Live's Darrell Hammond looks
more like him than he does.
It's clear to me it's no fun
being president. So why do all
those people want the job?
Those 800 candidates are as
useful as ants at a picnic. If I
were an Iowan, I'd be tired of
them. It's like having a house
guest who decides to stay for
six, eight or nine months.
I'm not sure when the Iowa
primary is, but I don't think
it's anytime soon. By the time
it comes around, most of these
camdodates could be legal resi-
dents of the state, they've been


[I



w"


there so long.
Here's another thing I'm curi-
ous about. Do these people have
real jobs? Are they plumbers or
pipe fitters? I checked into it,
and most of them are senators,
congressmen and governors.
None of them,
by the way, rep-
DE OF resents the state
of Iowa.
ATTER Who's run-
ning these peo-
ERARD ple's states? Be-
------ing a politician
must be a great
job if you can afford to be away
from it eight or nine months.
No wonder the country is in
the shape it is. All of the people
in charge of running it are look-
ing for another job.
We should dump all these
primaries and let them post their
resumes on CareerBuilder.com.
I don't have a clue what any
of these candidates stand for
because I haven't paid any at-
tention to them. They have
had plenty of debates, but they
haven't said much of anything
worth remembering.
Besides, it's a lot like watch-
ing the first half of an NBA
game. Not much happens that's
worth anything until the last five
minutes. The rest is filler.
Speaking of filler, that de-
scribes most of the candidates
Some of the pundits in Iowa
were wondering if Republican
Fred Thompson, who used to
be a senator or something in
Tennessee and is now on the
television program Law and
Order, came into the race too
late. I don't think so. After all,
no one outside the state of Iowa
can name more than five of the
people running for president
anyway, and with the excep-
'tion of Hillary Clinton, we don't
know much about any of them.
So, Thompson's not in too bad


shape.
The only thing he has going
for him is that he plays a lawyer
on television. That's a plus ... he
could actually be one.
As for Mrs. Clinton, she
has one big thing going for her
- her marriage to Bill Clinton.
Many people who didn't like
Bill Clinton think that is a draw-
back; that Bill will actually be
running things. I don't look at it
that way.
I figure if you can live with
Bill Clinton, dealing with almost
any crisis coming your way is
going to be a piece of cake. As
for Bill running things, I doubt
Hillary will want him around
much. After all, she probably
doesn't have a lot of good mem-
ories of Bill in the White House.
I imagine she'd send him on so
many fact-finding missions to
Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka that
he'd never be around.
Rudy Guiliani is running. I
guess he doesn't have a job like
Hillary and Fred. After being
mayor of New York you really
don't want to take a job at Star-
bucks or Target.
John McCain already has a
job. He's a senator from Ari-
zona, but the only thing people
remember about him was that
he was a prisoner of war. I think
that qualifies him for the job be-
cause after all, President Bush is
also a prisoner of the war.


As for Barak Obama, he's
running because he has a cool
name and nobody knows any-
thing about him. It helps not to
have anybody know anything
about you if you're running for
president.
John Edwards is also in the
mix. The only thing people re-
member about him is he might
have run for vice-president last
time with John Kerry and gets
$400 haircuts. Either that or he
was on one of those swift boats
with John Kerry during the
war. He's a lawyer, and that's
good because if he loses to Fred
Thompson he can takes Fred's
job on Law and Order.
That's about it. There are
about 874 other people running,
but I don't know anything about
them.

tremendous strides over the last
few years through the efforts of
the Florida Health Care Asso-

homes are reimbursed at a proper
level to increase the level of staff.
Florida now has the highest staff-
ing standards in the nations.
The 72,000 Floridians who
live in nursing homes, and those
who may someday need our ser-
vices, need to be assured the gov-
ernor and state will not be cutting
back on a commitment they and
the Florida Health Care Associa-

high level of care.
At this facility, we are com-

care possible. And again, thanks
to Mrs. Smith for her wonderful
testimony to our staff.

lacking in


compassion

Dear Editor:
My parents are raising four
grandchildren on a fixed income
and currently live in a trailer
they own parked in a trailer park
whose owner I won't mention.
Five months ago, the owners
said they had six months to find
another place to live; that the
trailer park was closing down.
Since then, they have been look-
ing with no luck for another lot.
Either the rent is too high or they
don't allow children.
I believe the owners of the
trailer park are not telling the
truth; they own five trailers in
the park, all rented, and none of
them have been told to move.
Come November 1, my parents
are going to be out of a place to
live, and they have nowhere to
move their trailer, or the money
to move it.
There are a lot of people like
them in Baker County. I am not
a Christian, but I believe in God
and try to live right. I also firmly
believe one should treat people
the way they want to be treated.
I know there are a lot of good
people in Baker County, but
some have no compassion for
others especially when they
put grandparents and grandchil-
dren out of a place to live.

Palm and cycad enthusiasts converge October 6


at gardens
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Palm and cycad enthusiasts
traveled from across Florida and
as far away as New Orleans to
Baker County on October 6 to
tour the gardens at the home of
Dr. Kyle Brown north of Glen St.
Mary. The group of nearly 20
people, many clad in beige tee-
shirts printed with a palm logo,
spent several hours touring, dis- I
cussing and taking photographs
of their favorite plants. Undaunt-
ed by the rain, umbrellas were
plentiful. L
Dr. Brown is a member of the
First Coast Palm & Cycad So- t
city, one of seven chapters in
Florida. They are sub-organiza-
tions of the International Palm
Society.
Nearly everyone is familiar
with and can identify some spe- 1
cies of palm trees, but cycads are
an ancient group of seed plants
characterized by a large crown
of compound leaves and a stout
trunk. They are frequently con-
fused with palms, but are not
related. The popular landscape
plant, the Sago palm, is not a
palm at all but a cycad.
For the last 30 years, Dr.
Brown has planted a variety of
palms and cycads on his property
off CR 125. The garden contains
many tropical species not usu-
ally grown with success in the
extreme north of Florida where
temperatures can sometimes dip I
to freezing and below. Much of
the group's conversation focused (
on incidents of rare but record t
cold temperatures and freezes
experienced by the state and the
effects on palms and cycads. It
was exciting for the group to. I
view species that normally are
only seen in the southern part of I
the state.


near Glen;
Sue Quinley, a member of the
Macclenny Garden Club, was
most impressed with the gar-
den's "micro environments."
"Dr. Brown has great luck
with the newer species devel-
oped to tolerate the cold and has
created areas of trees that 'over-
;tory' less cold hardy types. That
helps them to survive," she said.
Society members were im-
pressed by many of the unusual
variegated and dwarf palms.
Chuck Buster, who with wife
Margie own Alpha Foliage, Inc.
.n Homestead, Fla., sells six va-
rieties of palm that are common
to horticulturists and gardeners, \
among them the Majesty, Chi-
nese fan and Queen varieties.
"Our clients typically buy
only commonly recognized va-
rieties," he said. "But palm col-
ectors will pay $75-$200 for
more rare examples."
The group listened intently as
Dr. Brown described a lucky find
of a rare variegated needle palm
growing near a golf course.
"It was dumb luck that I just
stumbled across it," he told them.
'I almost had a fit the first time
t bloomed, because I knew there
would be all these seeds."
According to Wickipedia, p
worldwide there are 2600 spe-
;ies of palms and 305 described
species of cycads with new spe-
cies being discovered as research
and identification methods im-
)rove. ,
"Some of the cycads are an-
cient, nearly unchanged since
he dinosaurs roamed the earth,"
a member said.
Dr. Brown retired after years
as a horticulture instructor at
Lake City Community College.
Hie is a recognized expert on
palms, bromeliads, orchids and
other species of plant life.

A Macclenny resident said
October 7 that she had been
robbed of jewelry valued at
more than $3600.
Shirley Young called police
to her home on SR 121 when
she found the jewelry box miss-
ing from her bedroom. A shot-
gun was also missing.
Ms. Young noticed the miss-
ing items when she came home
from work that day. She told
Deputy Garrett Bennett that no
one outside of her immediate
family knew the jewelry box,
which was attached to the wall
in her room, was actually a jew-
elry box since it was disguised
as a picture.
She was unable to provide a
serial number for the gun or of-
fer any potential suspects.
A Glen St. Mary resident re-
ported a similar home robbery
October 6. Jo Narramore-Manu-
la told Deputy Patrick McGauley
that a friend of her son's, Jeremy
Coburn, had been staying at her
home on Ridge Estates Drive
for some time while she was in
Jacksonville with her parents.
Jewelry, a camera, a laptop, a
lawn mower and a TV were sto-
len.


Mr. Coburn denied involve-
ment in the crime and said he
last saw the TV on October 5.
Deputy McGauley said in his
report that there was a large hole
in the bedroom wall and items
scattered on the floor. It is be-
lieved that the burglars entered
the house through an open win-
dow.
Christopher Wheaton of
Macclenny said October 3 that
someone had broken into his
home on Deerfield Circle.
According to Mr. Wheaton,
he noticed a side window open
when he arrived home. He found
a screwdriver near the window.
According to him, nothing was
taken, though he did notice a
lamp was broken. Police were
unable to lift any fingerprints at
the scene.
And Macclenny resident
Shanna Roundtree said Octo-
ber 4 that someone had cashed
a forged check for $34.99 on her
account with Vystar.
According to Ms. Roundtree,
the check was processed with a
check printing company called
Virtual Services. Ms. Roundtree
said that'Vystar would investi-
gate the complaint.

ber 6 when she ran into Mr. Har-
ris' girlfriend. (The full name
was not'provided in the police
report.) According to Ms. Dan-
iel, the girlfriend demanded to

officer, Mr. Spatcher again be-
gan to yell at his girlfriend on
the front porch. Because he was
causing a commotion and dis-
rupting neighbors, Mr. Spatcher
was arrested for disorderly con-
duct.

went to: Joe Ruise, Brandon
Beckenbaugh, Kerry Dunlavey,
Mike Griffis, Margie Croft and
Roger Yarborough.
David Theus was awarded an
honorary membership as the fac-
ulty advisor for Key Club.
Ms. Oglesby said that al-
though she was supposed to give
the Kiwanian of the Year to only
one person; there were two peo-
ple who had gone way above and
beyond being a club member to
help this club succeed. Both have
spent countless hours working
for the club.
The first plaque went to Ali-
cia McIntosh for working with
the schools and with community
businesses to establish a Terrific
Kids program in all three elemen-
tary schools in Baker County.


The first Terrific Kids were rec-
ognized in March of 2007. The
program was only held twice
during the last school year. In
the 2007-08 school year children
will be recognized almost every
month with an assembly at the
school.
The second plaque went to
Cooter Bob Kerce for preparing
meals for the club every week
at little cost to club members. In
addition, he has been the fund
raising chairman. One example
of his dedication to this club
was shown last month, when he
spent a Friday afternoon, night
and Saturday morning preparing,
cooking and selling ribs. Then
he returned to Baker County on
Sunday to provide a meal for the
YMCA Bike Ride.
Lt. Governor Tom Weller, on
his first official day on the job,
installed the board and club offi-
cers. In his remarks he said, "It is
not easy being a new club. This
club is doing well."
He said that some clubs do not
make it and that as a member of
a fairly new club, he was jeal-
ous of our Terrific Kids program.
Tom is a member of two clubs
in the Gainesville area Univer-
sity City, an established one, and
Santa Fe, a club he started three
years ago.
Club officers from last year
agreed to continue on for a sec-
ond year: other than Ms. Ogles-
by, they are vice-president Joe
Ruise, secretary Judy Becker,
treasurer Margie Croft, board
members Mike Griffis, Cooter-
Bob Kerce, Anna Lewis, Alicia
McIntosh, Bob Milner and Rog-
er Yarborough.
The local club usually meets
each Thursday at noon at the
Baker County Health Depart-
ment Community Room. This
week, however, it will be meet
October 11 at Macclenny City
Hall.

City plans targeted


(From page 1)
from Florida LLC Wednesday to
discuss the rejected comp plan
amendment. According to Mr.
Dopson, any amendments they
make to fall in line with DCA's
request would not come before a
public hearing.
In other business before the
commission Tuesday, Frank Da-
rabi, the Gainesville engineer in
charge of the city's water sup-
ply, said Macclenny was almost
certain to receive a state grant
of more than $42,000 to use on
design plans to expand the city's
water supply.
Macclenny is hoping to ex-
pand its water treatment facil-
ity near the health department
on Lowder St., but needs state


approval to do so. The state
Department of Envirdnmen-
tal Protection money will fund
the city's effort to complete the
plans and paper work needed for
such an effort.
The city has applied for a
grant to fund the construction
itself. The state will make that
decision later in the year.
The commission also passed
three resolutions regarding the
city's retirement plans. The
board agreed first to withdraw
from the Florida Municipal Pen-
sion Trust Plan. Then, it unani-
mously decided to re-join the
Florida State Retirement Sys-
tem. Finally, it designated the
city's elected officers for inclu-
sion in a special class within the
state retirement system.

Burglary from garage
Police are investigating the theft of a cordless drill and socket set
from the 7th St. home of a Macclenny woman October 6.
Alexis Cross told Deputy Gavin Sweat that she had recently moved
into the home with her husband. The items, valued at $270, were
taken from the family's garage. Ms. Cross said she had left a key to
the garage outside so construction workers could enter and finish up
work inside the home.
In other incidents, the sheriff's department is looking for a Bald-
win resident who is accused of stealing clothes from the Family Dol-
lar store in Macclenny.
Stephanie Carlan, the store's manager, said October 6 that she saw
a woman with brown hair take a diaper bag filled with clothes out of
the store without paying. According to Ms. Carlan, the woman ran
toward the woods northeast of the store.
Police found the stolen items next to Family Dentistry on West
Boulevard. A witness at a nearby gas station said he had given the
woman, alleged to be Melissa Crawford, 34, a ride to the Family
Dollar. Police were unable to locate the woman when they filed the
report.

We Thought of You Today
We thought of you today
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know
Remembering you is easy
We do it everyday
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.

Loving memories of

And as it is appointed into men
once to die, but after this the
judgement: Hebrews 9:27

When we are happy, or when we
are blue, God is aware of whatever
we do. And He will never leave us
alone. God shares in our sorrow;
it is comforting to know that God
did not take your passing without
feeling our pain. We thank our
God upon every remembrance of
you, because there is no sorrow on
this earth that heaven can't heal.
For God is the only shot caller; He
allows whatever happens in our
lives, and gives us the strength to
go through it.
In other words, to live is to suffer,
to suffer is to live, to live is to find
meaning in the suffering. So the
dead in Christ, your suffering was
not at all in vain, for they shall.
rise again. Rest in peace, Dad, our
hearts will never let you go we
miss you! Loving memories never
die as days go and years pass by.
Deep in our hearts a memory is
kept of the one we love and can
never forget.
LOVING YOU ALWAYS,

of sorrow or regret and never
cease to care. Come, grown up
children and rejoice that you
can hear your mother's voice.

Ma, you wrote this to your

your warm hugs once more.

Two long-time ministers join over 400


celebrating First Baptist's 124 year history


By Carrie Mizell
UNF Journalism Student
With eyes tightly closed and
a slow hum on their lips, several
members of First Baptist Church
of Macclenny reacted to the deep
sound of the Rev. Jim McCord
singing "How Great Thou Art"
with a raised hand to the sky or
a subtle toe tap the morning of
Sunday, October 7.
Though the worship service at
First Baptist Church of Macclen-
ny has evolved over the church's
124-year history, blending tradi-
tional with contemporary styles,
the word of God as it is preached
remains unchanged, according to
the Rev. Edsel Bone, senior pas-
tor.
"We're not what you'd con-
sider a country church," Bone
said. "Our church is very fam-
ily oriented ... we like to say, 'It
feels like home.'"
The crowd of 400 members,
visitors and old familiar faces
who attended the 124th Home-
coming Celebration had no trou-
ble assimilating to the boisterous
atmosphere inside the church.
Much of the excitement came
from the return of Rev. McCord,
a former music minister at First
Baptist Church of Macclenny
and Dr. Allen Carter, a former
senior pastor at the church.
Carter, the second longest
tenured pastor in the church's
history, and McCord continue to
serve the Lord together as minis-
ters at Calvary Baptist Church in
Bel Air, Md.
"On Sept. 16, I announced
to my church family in Mary-
land that I will be retiring," Rev.
Carter said. "Betty Sue, Marilyn,
Jim and I have served together
for 22 years. When we got the
invitation to come back to Mac-
clenny together for homecoming
I thought things couldn't be more
perfect."
Rev. Carter said that history
has become very important to
him over the years. He !remem-,
bers the struggle over selecting
the right color of stained glass
for the windows of First Baptist
Church of Macclenny's current
sanctuary and the ancient pine
tree that loomed over the prop-
erty.
The enormous tree was cut
down and the wood was planed
into two solid beams that are
currently in the church's narthex
along with two old electrified
lanterns that were found beaten
and distressed in the education
building. The lanterns required
refurbishing before they could


be installed in the new sanctuary
facility, according to Carter.
"First Baptist Church of Mac-
clenny has a very rich history,"
Rev. Carter said. "Dr. Billy Gra-
ham preached his first sermon
here. Woodrow Flynn was the
pastor at the time and he asked
Graham, who was a former
classmate, to come preach. Sup-
posedly he preached from Gen-
esis to Revelations in less than
10 minutes."
While church members have
worshiped in three other sanc-
tuaries over the last 124 years,
the church family decided before
Rev. Bone came to serve as se-
nior pastor that while the build-
ings may change, the church's
current location along SR 121 at
the comer of Minnesota Street
will be its permanent location
The church to begin purchas-
ing property along two adjacent
streets, according to Rev. Bone,;
who said thAt '85 'percent of'th&
planned purchases are complete.
Before Rev. Carter presented
the message, his successor rec-
ognized longtime church mem-
bers who were baptized or mar-
ried during Rev. Carter's tenure
as senior pastor, while also ac-
knowledging those who joined
the church during that time.
Leather Bibles were presented
to Bernice Green, Mary Finley
and Margaret Helms, all whom
claimed to be the longest active
ongoing members of the church

- each having been a member
for over 50 years. .
Eighty-five-year-old Myrtice
Begue believes.it is the care and
concern church members have
for one another that make First
Baptist Church of Macclenny so
special. A second-grade Sunday
school teacher since 1979, Ms.
Begue began teaching Sunday
school in 1960 after she and her
husband moved from Lake City.
Her face lights up as she shares
colorful stories of second-grade
antics over the years, but she sits
up a bit straighter in her chair as
she talks about the church's mis-
sion.
"Our primary purpose for be-
ing a church is to present Jesus to
the community and to the world.
We are a lighthouse for Jesus,"
Ms. Begue said, echoing the sen-
timents of Pastor Bone.
According to the senior pastor,
thl churh does not only attract
established business 'profession-
als, but also a vast group of blue-
collar everyday people seeking a
relationship with the Lord.
The church, which was con-
stituted in May 1883 by a Florida
Baptist Convention missionary,
currently averages 300 members
each Sunday morning for wor-
ship, according to Rev. Bone.
They are very missions-oriented,


contributing 12 percent of each
dollar given in tithes and offer-
ing to support missions through
Southern Baptist Convention
cooperative programs and three
missionaries the church has ad-
opted on its own.
Church members are also ac-
tively involved in the community.
The youth group sells curly fries
each year at the Baker County
Fair as a fund raiser, while other_
members set up inside a fair barn
to talk with attendees and give
away copies of The New Testa-
ment.
Also in October, the church
hosts a safe Halloween alterna-
tive in the Family Life Center.
Each year the event with its
games, rides and candy, draws in
nearly 900 children.
"The church really hasn't
changed much in all the years I
have been attending here. Con-
temporary housese' are ,now
iiterspersed ahdc'thereitte 1ridre
activities for youth and younger
children," Ms. Begue said. "The
love is still here. It's amazing
how much we feel for one an-
other. I can hardly describe it ...
it's such a precious thing."

Unbeaten streak 'snapped'



Wildcats fall short in key district match-up


It was the little things that
broke the Baker High Wildcats'
unbeaten string Friday night.
The Cats were hampered by
penalties, miscues and poor deci-
sions, giving the Jackson Tigers
just the impetus that they needed
to take a 21-13 win. It was a frus-
trating night for Coach Bobby
Johns and the football team.
"We out-gained them 300 to
200 yards," said Johns. But it
was what they weren't accom-
plishing that made the biggest
difference.
The Wildcats came into the
game with a curious lack of in-
tensity that they haven't shown
in their previous matches, and
Jackson capitalized early. Johns
said that he noticed the lack of
focus on the bus ride over and in
the locker room before the game
and that it worried him.
His fears were justified very
early in the game. After a hold-
ing penalty pinned BCHS deep
in their end of the field on the
first series, Darrius McCray
picked off a Carlos Holton pass
and darted 10 yards into the end
zone to shock the Wildcats and
their fans. The Tigers were up
7-0 while people were still filing
into their seats.
It woke up the sparse Tiger
crowd and left the large Wildcat
traveling faithful stunned. It also
stunned the Cats.
The Wildcats haven't had to
play from behind this season and
even the coaching staff wondered
how they would respond.
Baker High struggled offen-
sively after the Jackson score.
They committed another frus-
.trating penalty and had to punt
back to the Tigers, but Carlos
Holton booted a great kick that
pinned Jackson on the one-yard
line. The defense rose to the oc-
casion and the Cats got the ball
right back.
Lucious Lee ran the ball well
and the offense executed well all
night until they got into the
Red Zone. The miscues contin-
ued to hound them. On the drive
they had a penalty, a fumble they
got back and a bad snap. It was
as if the Cats were playing off


the back foot from the opening
whistle
Lee and Holton combined to
drive the ball to the 2-yard line
of Jackson before a bad snap put
the ball on the 21 yard line and
snuffed the drive.
Jackson was not having those
problems early on. They got the
ball on their own 21 and drove
all the way down field for the
touchdown. The Wildcats did a
good job stopping running back
Antonio Linton, but that allowed
tailback Chris Campbell to have
a big night.
Jackson plodded down the
field and Campbell ran in from
the 3 for the score. The kick was
good and BCHS was down 14-0
with the half winding down.
When Coach Johns and his
staff analyzed the game on Sat-
urday, they discovered the Cats
were lining up incorrectly 50%
of the time. That meant that the
Wildcats were having trouble
recognizing how the Tigers were
setting up offensively and de-
fensively, and thus were chas-
ing the play. In the previous five
games, the Cats had graded out
at over 90%. Those mental errors
would prove the difference in the
game.
The Cats showed a lot of char-
acter coming out of the locker
room and drove down the field to
score on the first series of the sec-
ond half. Lee and Harold Moore
ran the ball extremely well, then,
Moore pushed the ball in from
two yards out for the score.
That woke up the large crowd
of Wildcat fans who had braved
the bad weather to make the
trip. All the Cats had to do was
combine for a big stop and the
momentum would shift their
way. You could feel it in the wet,
heavy air.
The only people who didn't
feel it were the Tigers. Just when
the Cats had them stopped and
were ready to take control, Jack-,
son threw a curve ball literal-
ly. Stalled on 4th down and nine
yards to go, the Tigers hurled a
halfback pass to Marquelle Lee,
who snagged it and ran in for the
score. It was a back breaker.

The Wildcats knew that play
was in the Tiger arsenal and
had practiced against it all week
long. But on this night they were
unable to stop it. Three defensive
players had a chance to break it
up, but couldn't quite make the
play and the Tigers had regained
the elusive momentum.
The Wildcats would score
again on a Carlos Holton touch-
down with just 16 seconds left in
the game. They tried an on-side
kick in hopes of regaining the
ball, but like so much that night,


Bishop Kenny only district unbeaten


The Wildcats took one on the
chin this weekend with their loss
to district foe Jackson. The loss
threw the district into a spin.
With the Cats having stopped
Raines and Bishop Kenny beat-
ing Jackson the previous week,
the Vikings' big win 18-7 over
Suwannee County means that
only Kenny is unblemished in
the district.
Here's a look at last weekend,
and how other past and future
Wildcat opponents fared.
The Crusaders defeated
Paxon 27-13 behind a strong
effort from quarterback Brett
Whitmire. Ross Crabtree caught
a trio of passes for 40 yards and


a touchdown. He also picked up
a fumble and raced 40 yards for
the score. Cody Anderson in-
tercepted two passes. The Cru-
saders had trouble stopping the
running game and Paxon's Mark
Lark ran for 147 yards.
Keystone Heights shut out
West Nassau 28-0. Matt Storey
was the "story" of the game with
142 yards rushing on 19 carries
for Keystone Heights.
The Bolles Bulldogs pound-
ed on Bradford County 49-13.
Bolles had 337 yards rushing
and seven touchdowns on the
ground in the rout of the Torna-
does. Chuckie Covington had a
good night for Bradford, return-


ing a fumble for a 66-yard touch-
down.
Things continued to go bad-
ly for Ridgeview after its loss
to the Wildcats. Nease beat the
Panthers 63-3, but it was a costly
win. Quarterback Ted Strachitas,
one of the best in the state, went
down with a knee injury.
Union County beat Trinity
Catholic of Ocala 29-28.
ACD beat Lake City Chris-
tian 35-28.
Potter's House lost to Eagle's
View 42-14.

- - - - -


it didn't go their way.
The Wildcats finished the
game statistically on top. They
out-gained the Tigers 291 to 211,
but Jackson captured a key win
that threw the race for the district
title wide open.
The Wildcats will have to
regroup this week and take a
100-mile road trip to face the
Vanguard Knights. The Knights
are much better than their 1-3 re-
cord (see related story) and have
a very talented passing quarter-
back.


Steelers beat


Lions, 30-0

Weather and the field con-
ditions at Memorial Stadium
resulted in many youth foot-
ball games being cancelled last
week. However, we do have
four results.
I. The Pee-Wee Cowboys
beat the Vikings, 26-0.
2. Still in Pee-Wee, the Jag-
uars beat the Bucs, 19-7.
3. The Middle Division Steel-
ers beat the Lions, 30-0.
4. And the Raiders beat the
Titans, 14-13.


The Wildcats will attempt
to rebound from Friday night's
loss to the Jackson Tigers when
they again take to the road,
this time heading down 1-75 to
Ocala to face a dangerous Van-
guard team. The Wildcats were
stunned by the Tigers. Though
they out-gained Jackson by al-
most 100 yards, they made lots
of mental and coverage mistakes
that Coach Bobby Johns felt cost
BCHS the game.
"We were embarrassed by
the way we played," said Johns.
"Our effort level was poor."
Johns particularly pointed to
bad coverages, where players
were lined up incorrectly on of-
fense or defense. In the previous
five games, the team had been
grading out around 90% in cov-
erages. Against Jackson it was
closer to 50%.
"Everything seemed to go
wrong," added Johns, "and we
couldn't put our foot on it to turn
it around."
The coach was more bouyant
after Monday's practice, howev-
er, as the players came out angry
and showed a lot of intensity. The
hope is that they can turn the loss
into a learning experience and
come away with increased focus
for the remainder of the season.
They will be taking their lon-
gest road trip in the two years
that Johns has been head coach.
He scheduled the game for a.rea-
son.
"If we make it into the play-
offs, we might have take some
long road trips and they need to


be used to it."
They will be playing a team
with over a dozen district titles
in the school's long history, with
some excellent players. Raider
quarterback Daunte Cullpepper
was a Vanguard Knight.
This year's Knight signal call-
er, Marquee Williams, is prob-
ably the best quarterback the
Wildcats.have faced. So far this
season, he has accounted for 700
of the team's 1000 yards of of-
fense.
He has a couple of fleet receiv-
ers. Kevin Hardy runs a 4.4 forty
and Akai Milson has good hands
and runs precise pass routes.
Tight end Jeff Hawkins had over
200 yards receiving last season
and is an excellent blocker. Pe-
ter Barry is an inside runner who
hits the holes well.
On the defensive side,
Hawkins and linebacker Doug
Smith can hit with the best of
them.
The Knights are a much bet-
ter team than their 1-3 record in-
dicates, and if the passing game
gets in synch they could be very
dangerous.
On the plus side for the Wild-
cats, the Knights have had a hard
time stopping the run. Their 3-
3-5 defense has given up big
chunks of rushing yardage.
This is one of those "test of
character" games. The Wildcats
and their fans will get to see how
well they handle adversity com-
ing back from a loss in a game
they could have, and perhaps
should have, won.


Wildcat volleybal team wins


two, loses onethisp ast week

It was a busy week for the Lady Wildcat volleyball team. The Cats
took on Fernandina Beach, Santa Fe and Bradford. The team easily
defeated Fernahdina at home on Monday by sweeping the Pirates in
three games by the scores of 25-19, 25-17 and 25-18. Coach Chris Ar-
moreda was pleased with the team's attitude going into the game.
"This was a big win for the team as they try to avenge some medio-
cre play from the last week and a half. All facets of the team's game
was in full swing," said Armoreda. "Our back row play and defense
was especially great on this night. Our back row players really played
well. They were digging the ball well and showed great effort in keep-
ing the ball off the ground. The backline really stepped it up and the
team rallied behind their efforts."
Stat leaders: Kills-Gray (11), Norman (7), Dugger (5)and Holton
(5); Blocks-Holton (5), Coffell (2); Assists- Kennedy (16), Smith (9)
The Cats hosted Santa Fe the next night. This was a key district
match-up for BCHS and they used the momentum from the previous
night's win to get them going against a very good Alachua team. The
Cats put up a real fight, but lost in three games.
The Cats knew coming in that Santa Fe is a good team but if the girls
neutralized two of their key players and matched their intensity point-
for-point, they had a good chance of beating them. The Cats ended up
on the losing end by the scores of 28-30, 20-25 and 18-25.
The team gave Santa Fe all it could handle in the first match. BCHS
was down 12-3 before lightning killed the power in the gym. After a
10-minute delay, the Cats battled back to take the lead 22-18. The team
matched Santa Fe hit- for-hit pass-for-pass, but some key errors and
missed serves lead to the outcome of this match.
Stat leaders: Kills-Gray (10), Dugger (7), Norman (5), Holton (4);
Assists-Kennedy (10), Smith (6); Blocks-Holton (4), Dugger (2).
The Cats traveled to Bradford County on October 4 and once again
blew past the Tornadoes in three games by the score of 25-16, 25-14
and 25-18.
The team played very well and both the backline and frontline play-
ers were key to this victory. The back row, lead by Jessi Nunn, pro-
vided the setters great passes to get the offence going. Stat leaders:
Kills-Dugger (10), Norman (7), Holton (4), Gray (3); Blocks -Holton
(3); Assists-Kennedy (13), Smith (7).
The Cats will host Ridgeview on Thursday at 5:30 pm. This is a
key district game and it will impact the seeding for the district tourna-
ment. The final home game is on Tuesday, Oct. 16 versus Columbia
High. It's senior night and the Cats will honor senior Brittany Gray,
Cassie Kennedy, Tiffany Norman, Jessi Nunn, Mary Dugger and Kal-
lie Crummey.

1 fine


record for


Wildcats


FROM THE

'PRESS BOX'
Mike Crews

A lot can change during the
course of a season, but for the
Wildcats the world seems to
have flipped upside down after
last week.
Beginning the season 5-0, and
with so many expectations lead-
ing into the game against Jack-
son this past Friday night, the
Wildcats seemed unstoppable.
Averaging over 37 points per ball
game, it would be hard for the
Tigers to keep this offense out of
the end zone and knock them off
track making the playoffs. Yet, it
only took a few plays before the
Cats found themselves in unfa-
miliar territory. Before Jackson
intercepted a Wildcat pass on
the first series and ran it in for a
touchdown, the Wildcats had not
trailed in a ball game this year,
leading many to believe this may
be a year of destiny.
What happens now? Will the
Wildcats still be able to make the
playoffs? Why was Jackson able
to stop the Wildcats?
These are many of the ques-
tions I have been asked and
many of the questions running
through the heads of Wildcat
fans today. The answers will be
learned over the next few weeks,
but let me give you my opinion
on where things stand for the
Wildcats heading towards the
home stretch of the season.
First things first. If you would
have predicted before the season
the Wildcats would be 5-1 after
six games, most people would
have relished the thought. I can
certainly see that this program
is headed in the right direction.
Once you start winning though,
there's no turning back. Just ask,
the Gators, or the Jaguars for that
matter.
On a much different scale,
the same could happen to the
Wildcats. The lofty expectations
placed on this team can be a bur-
den. My solution to this would
be for fans and players to enjoy
the experience. It's good to have
your team talked about on the
news and in the paper. It's good
to go to the stadium and see a big
crowd of fans. It's good to even
think you have a chance to make
the playoffs.
Chances are the Wildcat foot-
ball team is still pretty dam good
even though it suffered the loss:
Chances are that the Wildcats by
winning their last two district
games will still have a very good
opportunity to make the play-
offs. Chances are the best is yet
to come for this team. Enjoy the
ride, because before you know it,
the season will be over.
This week's picks:
Baker County will travel
to Ocala Vanguard to face a 1-3
team. Look for the Wildcats to
regain their form this week and
win the game 35-14.
Florida State @ Wake Forest
- Florida State is on the road at
Wake Forest in a revenge game
against last year's ACC champs.
Wake is not playing at last year's
form and the Seminoles have
some confidence going in. For
Ms. Begue, I will pick the Semi-
noles to win, 23-7.
Houston Texans @ Jaguars
- the Jaguars seem to be doing
well with David Garrard at the
helm, and they would love to put
a whooping on the pesky Texans
at home. I'll pick the Jaguars, 20-
3.
Remember; come join us at
Calendar's Pizza on Monday
nights from 7:00-8:00 pm. Head
coach Bobby Johns, myself and
David Crummey discuss Wildcat


football, and Coach Johns takes
questions from the crowd. If you
can't make it, though, tune to
92.1 FM. If you have a take on
sports, email it to me at mike@
bakercountysports.com. See you
all next week.

Lions Club is

grateful for the

donatedglasses
The Macclenny Lions Club
would like to thank the commu-
nity for supporting the Recycle
for Sight used eyeglasses collec-
tion program. In August and Sep-
tember, we collected more than
500 pairs of unwanted glasses
and sunglasses for distribution in
needy countries.
The donated specs are sent to
a regional recycling center where
they are cleaned, sorted by pre-
scription and prepared for distri-
bution.
By making the donations, you
help improve the lives of people
in need. In most developing na-
tions, eye care is either unafford-
able or inaccessible. For many,
poor eyesight left uncorrected
leads to unemployment for adults
and inability to attend school for
children.
The local Lions express their
appreciation to the following
for serving as drop-off centers:
American Enterprise Bank, Bak-
er Vision Center, Country Feder-
al Credit Union, Ferreira Funeral
Services, Food Lion, Macclenny
Optical, Mercantile Bank, Wa-
chovia Bank, Wal-Mart vision
center and Winn-Dixie. Contin-
ue to bring the glasses to these
businesses just look for the
Lions Club blue and white dona-
tion box.
If you are interested in learn-
ing more about Lions Club ac-
tivities here in Baker County,
call president Chuck Prachar at
259-1900 or William Beckum,
1st vice-president, at 533-3809.

AnnualSt. Mary's event raises funds for charitybuilding..
St. Mary's Catholic Church's annual yard sale and fish fry took place October 5-6. Sponsored by the church's Council of Catholic
Women and members of the Knight's of Columbus Chapter 11566, proceeds go to local charity projects and the church's build-
ing fund. At the end of each day, shoppers are given a bag which they can fill for $1.00. Any items left after the sale endsgo to
Catholic charities. Father Jose Maniyangat, St. Mary's pastor, reports that so many new people are moving to the area it will
soon be necessary to build a new sanctuary. When one shopper could not come up with the full $5.00 price for a meal, the Knights
served her anyway. "That's what it's really about," said Knight Jim Tillis. Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Food Lion and Easy Stop Store
donated food items for the event. In photo above, Knights of Columbus members Ken Cochran, Jim Tillis and Jimmie Johnson
serve up crispy fried fish.
