puzzled


by death
The medical examiner's of-
fice in Gainesville ruled over
the weekend the death of a Glen
St. Mary man whose body was
found partially in the rear seat
and partially in the trunk of his
vehicle the morning of October
10 was accidental.
The Baker County sheriff's
department remains puzzled,
however, as to how Mitchell
W. Wynn-Green, 35, got into
the po-
sitionin
which
he was
found
b y
Deputy
Garrett
Ben -
nett off
Rich-
ardson
d a ad d
Near the
,ic- bridge
Mitchell WynnGgreen over the
South
Prong of the Little St. Marys
River. The location is south of
Sanderson.
Deputy l Bennett said he
came upoon the white 1993
Nissan parked off the unpaved
road about 930d and suspected
w as s a stolen car. He nars,
checked the driver's seat for
an occupant, then when turn-
ing to go to the rear to note the
license tag, he noticed the deadly
man's head and one arm pro-
truding through a space near
the rear seat arm rest.
Mr. Wynn-Green appeared
Sto be lifeless and the officer
noted blood Mn the immediate
area around the head. His body
was unclothed and appeared
to have been wet like hve
was swimming in the nearby
creek. There were few signs
oof activity around the vehicle,
and the dead man's feet did not
bear residue that suggested he
walked back to his car. ac
"Right now they're calling
it an unfortunate accident,"
said Sheriff Joey Dobson this
week. "As to how he gobt into
the position he was found, we
just don't know. It could have
been he was struggling to get
out of that trunk through the
opening and died in some sort
of panic."
There were items in the car
that suggested possible drug
use a pipe a ny d steel wool
commonly used to smoke crack
- and a toxicology ruling will
take several weeks.
A relative told police Mr.
Wynn-Green had been drink-
ing the previous day, but of-
fered no information as to
what might have happened to
him. Other than a few small
scratches, the autopsy did not
reveal any signs of foul play.

County okays zoning for jail


In face of protest from adjacent neighborhoods off SRs 121 & 228


M onday's coun-
ty commission

meeting ended with

insults and acrimony

after the board unani-

mously approved the

site of Baker County's

future jail.
Dozens came out
Monday for the zoning By
public hearing either as Andrew
audience members or
to speak against the site Bare
at the corner of SR-121 PressStaff
and SR-228 just north press ta
of Macclenny. The
land, which \\as chosen by the Baker,
Correctional Development Corporation,
abuts the Foxridge and Timberlane
subdivisions, and sits near Macclenny
Elementary School. Opponents, esti-
mated at around 60 for most of the near-
ly two-hour hearing, said the proposed
512-bed facility, represented an unac-
ceptable danger to nearby children.
"It s an entirely plausible concern that
it's in my backyard," Jessica Kittrell, a
Timberlane resident, said. "Why invite
the trouble? I don't walk down the inier-
state and risk a Mack truck hitting me
just because it might hit me any \way.
"Never, never in a million years
would I have bought a home next toa a
512-bed jail."
Ms. Kittrell; whose concerns were
first reported by The Press in June,
moved to Baker County in March of
2006. Many of the speakers Monday
had moved to Baker County within the
last two years and echoed Ms. Kittrell's
claim that they would have avoided the
area if they had known of the jail site.
Kimberly Archer, a resident of the near-
by Rolling Meadows subdivision and
a mother of one, also said she would
discourage any friends from moving to
Baker County if the jail was built.
"If this happens, I don't want any
more kids," Ms. Archer said. "Had I
known, I wouldn't have moved here."
But while the commissioners said
they understood and sympathized with
the neighbors' complaints, they ulti-
mately decided to approve the neces-


jail." Ms. Kittrell

Monday, framed the controversy as an
issue of necessity.
"The county that we love has a jail
that is out-dated and insufficient," Mr.
Crews said. "I understand the concerns.
Anything can happen. I have all the con-
fidence in our Sheriff's Office."
Protesters were not swayed by BCDC


representative Danny Thomas' claims
that the facility would include state-of-
the-art security systems and that prison-
ers would not exercise outside, in view
of the neighbors.
"The jail we propose will have secu-
rity cameras throughout, inner-locked
Security doors, inner-locked vestibule
doors, all inside recreation," Mr. Thom-
as said. "There will be no inmates out-
side playing ball or lifting weights or
anything like that."
After the board's decision, several
of the attendees shouted insults at the
commissioners on their way out of the
chambers. One woman yelled, "You
care about money, but you don't care
about us!" Some suggested that the hear-
ing was pointless, as commissioners had
made up their minds before Monday.

The entire project hinges

If that doesn't happen, the jail
won't be built. The plan is to
repay the bonds using revenues

Responding to an inquiry dur-

attorney Terry Brown reiterated
that Baker County taxpayers
would not be on the hook if the
bond issue defaulted.


Code violation letters sent

In the month since she was appointed by the Glen St. Mary Town
Council as zoning code enforcer, clerk Donna Loadholtz has placed
14 property owners on notice to correct violations or face action by
the county's Code Enforcement Board.
Ms. Loadholtz, who also is the board's secretary, reported during
a brief regular council meeting the evening of October 16. She noted
that all the letters resulted from apparent violations north of the
railroad that bisects Glen St. Mary.
She described the infractions as similar to what the county
department often cites: yard trash and refuse, sub-par buildings and
abandoned vehicles.
"A couple of them are not so happy; some have not responded at
all," Ms. Loadholtz remarked responding to an inquiry by the council.
Glen has a pact with the county to hear non-compliance cases.
She said she will concentrate the next volley of first-notice letters
in neighborhoods south of the railroad during the coming month.

Alleges daughter molested


whilefriendspent the night


A criminal complaint was
filed by the father of a 15-year-
old female who said she was
molested during the early morn-
ing hours of October 7 at a resi-
dence near Sanderson.
The girl told her father the
incident happened when the ac-
cused, who is an acquaintance of
the complainant, touched her in-
appropriately while she slept on
the living room floor. The sus-
pect had earlier agreed to spend
the night at the house at the re-
quest of the father, who believed
his friend was too drunk to drive
home.
The teen said as she awoke
and asked the accused, who is
37 years old, what he was do-
ing, he got back into a nearby
recliner and fell asleep. She re-
portedly delayed telling her fa-
ther for fear of what he would
do to the accused.
SThe Department of Chil-
dren and Families notified the
sheriff's department on October
12 it may seek criminal charges
against a 28-year-old Macclen-
ny man for having sexual rela-

Life with pets is every bit as
challenging, dramatic, funny,
exciting and absolutely aggravat-
ing as life with human beings.
On my neighborhood walks,
I pass the same dogs nearly ev-
ery day and I often take a few
moments to speak to them over
their fences and even pet them.
You would think at this point
they should be familiar with my
scent, voice and intentions, but
it's not the case. Each day as I
approach, there is the same ritu-
al of running, barking, growling,
jumping and yipping as if I'm a
total stranger.
My next door neighbor's little
dog lies in wait as I approach,
then springs at my feet in a
frenzy of ear-piercing barking.
Such a small dog isn't noticeable
in the hedges and'flowers along
the fence. Before I figured out
her modus operandi, I would
nearly jump out of my pants in
surprise. Even now, she usually
gets the best of me.

Commission decision on

location ofnewjail suggests

indifference on re-election
Dear Editor:
With regard to the approval of the new 500+ bed jail, it occurs to me
that the county commissioners have shown by their actions that they do
not care to be re-elected. More importantly, they have displayed a total
lack of regard for the opposition presented by the people who elected
them. Gordon Crews, who represents the homeowners most impacted
by the facility, did not support his constituents in spite of them going
to great lengths to show their disapproval of the jail site. This is very
puzzling to me. Isn't that what they elected him to do?
At the public hearing preceding the vote, members of the commu-
nity who spoke were all in opposition to the jail with (to the best of my
knowledge) only one exception, and he is the brother of the sheriff's
chief investigator. That individual was not specifically in favor, of the
jail, but was in favor of doing whatever the sheriff said to do.
Speaking of which, it certainly seems inappropriate that one of the
members of the corporation that was formed to acquire the land and
present the plan for the jail is actually our own sheriff. Is this not a
conflict of interest? Should he have resigned as sheriff if he chose af-
filiation with the corporation? Or should he have left the corporate
planning to disinterested third parties? Is this an example of the small
town "good ole boy" politics we hear about? I doubt the property in-
volved was on the tax roll for $3,000,000; however, that is the price
agreed to be paid for the land.
Bonds will be offered, but who will purchase them? Will it be the
members of the corporation? Will it be our elected officials? Just who
will benefit from any profits? The corporation wants us to believe that
we, the residents of Baker County, will benefit; however, they cannot
tell us specifically how.
I am very disappointed that our commissioners would rather accept
federal funds to erect a jail than put their efforts into crime prevention
so that our county doesn't need a larger jail. It is obvious that the resi-
dents of this county would rather be recognized as living in a beautiful
area known for its family-based values rather than live in the county
with the "big jail."
Just where do we expect our future growth to come from with this
albatross? How many families are going to decide to move here?
Assuredly many less than there would have been had the vote been
against the site. Many current residents will move away. How is this
good for the community as a whole?
We put our money where our priorities lie. Too bad our elected offi-
cials don't share the same vision for our community that the tax paying
residents have. One would certainly surmise that they have a personal
agenda contrary to what is best for our community now and in the
future.

Re-zoning hearing a wreck
Dear Editor:
The County Commission hearing on the rezoning of property to
locate the proposed county jail glided through like a car wreck. After
two or three citizen speakers, most of the commissioners' eyes glazed
over in anticipation for the expected end approval of the proposed
rezoning.
Many concerned citizens with valid points spoke attempted to con-
vince the commission that this project indeed was a "sour apple." But
these concerns fell on deaf ears and, ultimately, the commission voted
unanimously to rezone the property. This also sealed the fate of each
commissioner with the constituent body present Monday night.
Experiencing this first hand, it has proved to me that the current
commissioners are out of touch with the people they represent and that
we are obligated to be ever-so-careful who we choose to represent us.
At times like this you want someone who can not only envision, but
also carry out an idea past their own wallet.
One final note, the office of a county commissioner is not designed
to run like a business serving their own desires, but that of a residing
passion to increase the quality of life for the people who trustingly
placed them there.

Turn hospital into ajail

Dear Editor:
I have lived in Baker County eight years, and I would like to see a
new hospital go up on SR 121 instead of a new jail. Why not use the
old hospital (remodeled) as a new jail and build a new hospital much
larger with a larger staff and improved insurance availability.
It's a shame that Baker County residents have to travel to Jackson-
ville for medical attention because Fraser Hospital and the doctors here
refuse to take Humana Insurance from the elderly. Why can't medical
teams come to Macclenny for services like they do at the hospital in
Palatka? The reason is the hospital and doctors do not take Humana.
My wife and I love Macclenny and the good neighbors we have, but
we may have to move to Jacksonville for adequate medical services.
With all the new growth Macclenny has now and is getting ready to
have, it's a shame the elderly have been left out of the picture.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday October 18, 2007 Page 4


County approves CEB bid for'administrative'


fee; approves release offunds for office expansion


BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
The county commission
Monday unanimously approved
changes to the Code Enforce-
ment Board's procedures that
would make it more expensive
to violate county zoning ordi-
nances.
The changes, as presented by
CEB Chairman Jim McGauley,
include an $85 administrative
fee for violators. That figure in-
cludes the cost of certified mail,
attorney fees and other expenses
associated with the code en-
forcement process. The board
will also eliminate one step in
its notification process for viola-
tors.
Before Monday, the board's
code enforcement officer, Phil
Thomas, would send out three


letters to violators the third
asking them to appear before the
CEB. The second letter has been
eliminated.
The CEB approved the ad-
ministrative fee at its monthly
meeting October 8 and removed
the second letter in. September.
But it was decided at the Octo-
ber session to seek the commis-
sion's official approval.
In other business before the
board, the commission unani-
mously agreed to a "memoran-
dum of understanding" autho-
rizing the release of $800,000
in state funds toward alleviating
space concerns in the county
government and courthouse.
The money, which includes
$500,000 from 2006-2007 and
$300,000 from 2007-2008, will
be used to help complete a re-


shuffling of the various offices
in the government hub in down-
town Macclenny. The plan,
which was approved by com-
missioners previously, moves
several offices in the courthouse
to the buildings currently occu-
pied by the county commission
and zoning departments. Those
two entities will attempt to find
other space.
Much of the movement would
be keyed by the Sheriff's Office
packing its bags and heading to
a new complex at the corner of
SR-121 and SR-228.
The board also approved an
agreement with Jo Gaskins of
Sanderson to conduct inspec-
tions of houses that have been
nominated for grant-funded im-
provements.
The money comes via a state


Community Development Block
Grant. Mr. Gaskins has been
charged with inspecting some
of the potential homes, consult
with contractors, monitor per-
formance and other tasks.
In a related matter, the com-
missioners approved two of
those contractors Monday. Billy
Dugard will work on four of the
homes and Brent Whitney on
two. Commissioner Julie Combs
abstained from the Dugard vote,
as her husband occasionally
works with them.
And Dupont Mining Rep-
resentative David Wright pre-
sented the county with a $4000
check, the result of a company
grant Baker County applied for
and was awarded. The money
will go to the fire department.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday October 18, 2007 Page 5


Jacksonville woman is

arrested for attempted


run-down of adversary


A Jacksonville woman was
arrested and charged with aggra-
vated assault after she allegedly
tried to run over another woman
on West Blvd. in Macclenny on
October 12.
Witnesses said Lashell Brad-
ford, 18, got into an argument
with Macclenny resident Tiara
Roberson at around 9:00 pm.
Ms. Roberson claimed that,
during the fight, Ms. Bradford
got into her sedan and attempt-
ed to run her down. She failed
and crashed into a nearby park
fence.
Deputy Sgt. Phil Duval said
that when he arrived on. the
scene, he saw Ms. Bradford
chasing after Ms. Roberson with
a stick. After police subdued
her, she allegedly admitted to
attempting to run over Ms. Rob-
erson.
In other reports, Timothy
Jesseman, 33, of Macclenny
was arrested and charged with
aggravated assault October 13
after one of his tenants accused
him of threatening him with a
shotgun.
James Lauramore told po-,
lice he heard gunshots from his
landlord's residence on Jimmy
Lane. According to Mr. Laura-
more, when he went to check on
the noise, Mr. Jesseman pointed


ATV taken


from home
Police are investigating the
theft of a Honda ATV from a
home in Sanderson.
Joseph Manniko told Deputy
Greg Burnsed October 13 that
the ATV had been stolen from
a stable under construction on
his property. Mr. Manniko said
he had some problems with
workers A ho had been laboring
on his land, and that they knew
where the ATV was parked.
Sgt. Burnsed could not find
two of the workers Mr. Manniko
named.
In other reports, Macclenny
resident Robin Dugger said Oc-
tober 12 she was the victim of
identity theft. Ms. Dugger said
she had received a call from a
collection agency about a tele-
phone account opened by a
woman named Carlene Clark,
who lives in North Dakota. Ms.,
Clark allegedly used Ms. Dug-
ger's name to open the account.
Police in North Dakota are
investigating the claims.
Lorie Hay, who lives in an as-
sisted living facility near North-
east Florida State Hospital in
Macclenny, said October 9 that
someone stole her camera. Ms.
Hay was unable to provide any
possible suspects.


a shotgun at him and threatened
him.
According to Deputy John
Hardin, Mr. Jesseman smelled
strongly of alcohol when he was
being questioned. The officer
said the accused admitted point-
ing the gun at Mr. Lauramore.
His guns were confiscated when
he was arrested.
The sheriff's department said
charges would be filed against
four county jail inmates who
allegedly fought in the early
morning hours of October 13.
Deputy Harold Taylor re-
sponded to the facility in refer-
ence to a fight. There, he said, a
corrections deputy told him that
several inmates had fought.
Gregory Robbins, 19, alleg-
edly admitted to using a cooler
lid to hit inmate Terry Burnham,
31, in the head. When asked
why he did so, Mr. Robbins said
it was because he was too small
to use his fist.
Two other inmates, Marlon
Gaskins, 20, and Leonard Lee,
24, were also named in the in-
cident. The fight apparently
started after Mr. Gaskins ex-
ited the shower and made "loud
noises" in the jail. Mr. Gaskins
and Burnham started fighting. It
was then that Mr. Robbins and
Mr. Lee entered the fray. Mr.
Burnham was taken to Fraser
Hospital for treatment of a lac-
erated eye.


Husband arrested afier


death threat to wfe, child


The sheriff's department
called in its special response
team (SRT) the morning of
October 11 to arrest a Glen St.
Mary man at his residence af-
ter he allegedly threatened to
kill himself and a two-year-old
daughter.
Anthony Gray, 33, was on a
rear porch of the residence off
Kathy Jo Rd. and surrendered
without incident, said Deputy
James Marker. The daughter
and three other children ages
5-14 were safe inside and their
situation is being assessed by
the Department of Children and
Families.
The accused's wife Tammie,
30, notified the sheriff's depart-
ment about 9:30 am after she
was allowed to leave the resi-
dence for an appointment. She
met police at Celebration Park in
Glen and told them she and Mr.
Gray argued the previous night
and morning, and he would not
allow her to leave. When he fi-
nally agreed, he made the death
threats in the event she contact-
ed police. Earlier, he took a tele-
phone from her and refused to
let her leave with the daughter.
Mr. Gray was booked at coun-
ty jail for aggravated assault and
false imprisonment, both third-
degree felonies.
A criminal complaint alleg-
ing domestic violence was filed
against Jeremy Johnson, 28, of
Macclenny following an inci-
dent at his residence off South
Third St. the afternoon of Octo-
ber 12.


Mr. Johnson's girlfriend,
Amanda Duncan, 28, initially
told Deputy Claude Hurley the
boyfriend punched her in the
chest and threw a basketball at
her stomach during an argument
over her refusal to give him
money for cigarettes.
She was taken to Fraser Hos-
pital because she claimed to be
five months pregnant, a state-
ment that turned out to be false,
as did a claim that she had been
treated at the Baker County
Health Department. She also
changed her story to say the
boyfriend punched her in the
stomach. Mr. Johnson denied all
the allegations.

Annual fair


winds it up...
Three days of ideal fall weather contrast-
ed with blustery skies and rain the week-
end before for the final run of the Baker
County Fair on Saturday and Sunday. The
contented face of the hog in above photo
suggests she was up to resting during the
final hours of the annual event following
judging and the swine sale. At left, people
young and old pile on a sled to add weight
during the tractor pull competition, a new
event in 2007 that coincided with the dis-
play of antique tractors. Bottom photo, a
typical scene in the cow barn after judging
and steer sales ended Saturday as young
exhibitors gather to shoot the breeze and
talk about how their animals did. For a
list of winning animal entries by 4-H, FFA
members and others, see page 15.


A Baldwin man was named in
a sworn complaint October 10
for possessing drugs and drug
equipment.
Deputy John Hardin said he
noticed two cars on US 90 near
the St. Marys River bridge at
about 3:50 am. Though they ap-
peared to be disabled, Deputy
Hardin said one of the vehicles, a
truck, sped away once he turned
on his overhead lights.
According to the officer, the
driver of the stationary car said
that he had run out of gas and
that the people in the other truck
were "trying to fight" him. Dep-
uty Hardin said in his report that
he chased down the truck and
noticed it swerving around the
road.
The driver, Peter Walker, 30,
allegedly admitted to having il-
legal items in the truck. Accord-
ing to the officer, Mr. Walker
produced a marijuana pipe and
four hydrocodone pills.
In other incidents, a county
deputy arrested Hollyhill, Fl.
resident Talmadge Chandler, 42,
on October 8 after he allegedly
found marijuana in his posses-
sion.
Mr. Chandler was a hitch-
hiker riding a tractor-trailer that
was stopped on I-10 early that
afternoon. Deputy William Hill-
iard, who had been called to as-
sist the Highway Patrol, asked
Mr. Chandler if he could search
him. Mr. Chandler consented,
and Deputy Hilliard said he
found a bag of marijuana and a
small metal pipe.
Police issued a citation to
Jesse Vines, 20, of Sanderson
after they allegedly found mari-
juana seeds and stems in his car
October 9.
Deputy Hardin stopped Mr.
Vines on CR-125 and Yar-


Che itSout...


brought Rd. for driving 67 mph
in a 45 mph zone. According to
the officer, when he approached
the car he caught a faint smell of
marijuana. Mr. Vines allegedly


gave his consent to the officer to
search his vehicle.
Deputy Hardin then found the
seeds and stems.

Haunted Old Jail

October 26-27
The Old Jail, 42 W. Mclver
Street, is the place to be on
October 26-27 for one of the
scariest nights of the year. The
high school history club and the
Baker County Historical Society
are again teaming up to present
a night of horror in the old cell-
block. The proceeds from this
event will be used to restore the
building and the history club's
school trip. Food and drinks will
be on sale as part of the fund-
raiser.
Each year the members of
the history club choose an eerie
theme to carry out as they por-
tray spirits of evil. Come and
join the fun each night at 7:00
pm.

Fund raiser date

for Covenant Hs.
A candlelight vigil is planned
the evening of November 15
from 7:00-8:30 to raise funds and
heighten awareness of Covenant
House International, which helps
homeless youth with immediate
help and healing.
Sandy Rodgers of Baker
County is heading up the effort
to be held in the new park adja-
cent to the Macclenny Fire De-
partment on US 90.
The two Covenant House lo-
cations in Florida are Orlando
and Fort Lauderdale, and they
provide vital services like shel-
ter, counseling, transitional liv-
ing, health services and voca-
tional training. For more details
on the upcoming event, contact
Ms. Rodgers at 259-8816.

You took our Cindy that we
love so much. We miss her love
and her touch. Her babies, their
momma, they miss. They miss all
her hugs and her kiss. Her pre-
cious daughter and little-man,
her babies just don't under-
stand. When they grow up hope-
fidly they will see their momma
where you want her to be. When
you took her through the Pearly
Gate, I knew you wanted her for
something great. Lord, take care
of all my babies today andplease
don't take any more away.

Students study mock skeleton
Juniors Lisa Corona and Wendy Chisholm examine the skeletal remains at a mock
crime scene outside the BCHS Criminal Justice Academy's crime lab October 12.
Students enrolled in the program get a taste of working as evidence technicians
as they learn correct proceduresfor securing a crime scene, measuring, gathering
and documenting evidence. They then must translate the information into the format
required for a report that will hold up in court. Students use a compass to deter-
mine north/south direction, number each piece of evidence and prepare a sketch to
indicate scene boundaries and measurements as they relate to evidence. They are
also learning crime scene photography, gathering, processing and analyzing trace
evidence and techniques offinger printing. Funded through a grant, the crime lab is
new at BCHS this year. PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGAN

Cats win penalty-filled game



against Ocala Vanguard 35-13


If every penalty flag thrown
during the Wildcats' 35-13 win
over Ocala Vanguard Friday
night lay on the field unrecov-
ered, quarterback Carlos Holton
could have run for a touchdown
on nothing but a carpet of yellow
cloth.
It was a flag-happy evening
down in Ocala. After almost ev-
ery play in the first half, a con-
fetti of yellow erupted from the
officials' back pockets. Through
it all, some here in that'ticker
tape of yellow hankies a pretty
entertaining football game was
going on.
The penalties couldn't mar a
big road win for the Wildcats.
It was a win that they needed to
bounce back from a disappoint-
ing district loss to Jackson the
prior week.
Pundits often claim that the
game following a big loss is the
most important to determine a
team's character. Will they re-
bound and come back in a big
way, or will they fold under the
pressure?
For quarterback Holton and
his Wildcats, the answer was em-
phatic after the third play of the
game. Holton raced 73 yards for
a touchdown that set the tone for
the remainder of the night.
The score shocked.and quiet-
ed the Vanguard crowd, and mo-
ments later it was 12-0 on a Lu-
cious Lee score. Lee and Holton
ran well all night and Vanguard
stayed back back on its heels.
But Vanguard had a lot of
weapons and they weren't go-


ing to stay down for long. Tyrell
Lewis replaced versatile quar-
terback Marquee Williams and
Lewis hooked up with fleet wide
receiver Kevin Hardy. Hardy has
Division 1 speed and raced 82
yards for the first Knight score.
The Cats answered right back,
however. Holton hit BJ Rowe for
a good gainer and Harold Moore
took the ball over midfield. But
the rain of yellow flags contin-
ued as the Cat ,vere hit for their
third holding penfald. It was just
the start.
The penalty could have
stopped the drive, but Holton was
definitely on his game Friday. He
found Chris Robinson in Knight
territory. Holton was a handful as
a runner all night long, and when
he wasn't carrying the ball for
big gains it was Lee and Moore.
Holton ran the ball to the 8-
yard line and a play later took
it in for his second score of the
night. He then found BJ Rowe
in the end zone for the two-point
conversion and the Wildcats
were up 20-7.
That's how the scoring con-
cluded in the first half. The Wild-
cats had plenty of opportunities
stymied by penalties. They drove
the ball well all night long, but
whenever they moved close to
the red zone, the flags started fly-
ing.
That isn't to say the refs were
completely partial for the home
team. Vanguard had its share of
hankies thrown their way.
The Wildcats opened the half
with a good drive all the way to


the Knight five. But the drive
stalled and Vanguard took over.
Lewis found Hardy again and
moved the ball into Wildcat terri-
tory to the 27. They couldn't get
a first down, however and booted
an impressive 37-yard field goal
to close the gap to 20-10.
The Knight kicker proved he
had a leg later in the quarter as he
booted a 43-yarder with plenty
of room to spare.
With the Kniiglit creeping to
within a single touchdown, Har-
old Moore got the Wildcats go-
ing to midfield. The Cats pushed
the ball and Vanguard got hit
with successive unsportsmanlike
and face mask penalties that set
up a short Carlos Holton run for
his third TD. The conversion was
good and BCHS was up 28-13.
The Wildcats got one more
score as the game was winding
down. Holton ran to the 43-yard
line and then broke an exciting
57-yard touchdown jaunt. Bren-
dan Donovan's point after was
good to give the Cats a 35-13
winning cushion.
The Wildcats will once again
take to the road on Friday to face
the only team with an unblem-
ished district record. The Bishop
Kenny Crusaders beat Jackson
in a shocking upset early in the
season. They have played one
district game less than their other
district foes and are on top of the
standings.
The Wildcats want to change
that this weekend.

Poor week for most ofdistrict teams


What a difference a week makes! The Cats win
on the road at Vanguard and the only blemish on
the BCHS season so far (Jackson) gets shut out. In
fact, for most of the Wildcats' district mates, it was
a weekend that they would rather forget.
That's certainly true of the Jackson Tigers, who
got their third loss on the books with a pitiful 22-
0 whitewash at the hands of Ed White. The Com-
manders got a pair of touchdowns from quarterback
Aaron Seigler and two sacks by Zack Smith as they
stymied the Tigers. Jackson had 250 yards rushing.
Raines lost a heartbreaker to Lee. The Generals
got 155 yards rushing from James Perkins and Tiray
Dove scored a late touchdown as Lee won a thriller
14-13. On defense, Gerald Rogers intercepted a
pass on the five yard line to stop Raines driving for


the winning score.
Bishop Kenny had a heartbreaking loss of its
own leading up to this week's matchup with BCHS.
Fleming Island got two touchdowns from quarter-
back Ryan Aplin as the Golden Eagles beat the Cru-
saders 17-14. Kenny quarterback Brett Whitmire
was intercepted three times Friday night.
Ridgeview continued its slide, losing to Clay
County 20-7 as Quentin Battle rushed of 192
yards.
Bradford County got its third win of the season
with a 21-7 victory over Ribault.
West Nassau posted an exciting 17-16 win over
Fernandina Beach.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday October 18, 2007 Page 13



Wildcats regain old toughness underJohns


FROM THE


'PRESS BOX'
Mike Crews

I have had a lot of conversa-
tions with people over the years.
Those who know me understand
that this is one of the things that I
come by fairly easily. I can strike
up a conversation with just about
anybody on just about any sub-
ject. The subject that I choose
most often is, obviously, sports.
Lately, the subject has turned
more and more to people asking
me about the Wildcats. "How
did the Wildcats do last night?"
is one of the questions that I re-
ceive frequently on Saturdays as
I venture around town. With all
of the questions and conversa-
tion about the Wildcats becom-
ing so prevalent, I can't help but
think that this year's team and
the excitement remind me a lot
of the days when the Cats were
coached by Danny Green.
Many of you will remember
Danny Green and the passion
that surrounded the team when
he was at the helm. This year's
team resembles the teams Danny
coached for a lot of reasons.
First Results. Danny never
won a state championship in
Baker County, but his teams
were always competitive. In fact,
the reputation' that the Wildcats
carried in the 80's and early 90's
was one of toughness. Teams
didn't want to play the Cats back
then because they knew they
were going to be tough to beat.
Bobby Johns is bringing that
toughness back. That's not to say
that teams in the past ten years
haven't been tough because there
are certainly examples, but the
reputation lost its luster a little
bit over that stretch.
Second Coaching Family. I
remember Danny Green having
the same group of guys on the
sidelines year in and year out. I
remember the kids of the coach-
es growing up together and being
involved with each other on and
off the field guys like Bobby
Harrison and Jerry Chester. They
mirrored the toughness the Wild-
cats portrayed on the field, and a
lot of ex-players in Baker Coun-
ty are thankful that they had the
opportunity to be coached by
these men. I see the same type
of coaching family tree being
built with Bobby Johns. And,
likewise, I see a resemblance of
the toughness evident within the
team. I know it's only year two
for this staff, but it has the ingre-
dients for longevity, something
the program has lacked over the
last decade or so.
Danny Green .has gone on
to enjoy success at Columbia
County High School, just west
of Baker County. Danny's teams
continue to be some of the tough-
est around. When you hear that
somebody is playing against Co-
lumbia, you immediately think,
"Boy, I'd like to see that game."
That is the type of attitude and
personality under this Wildcat
coaching staff I think you can

expect. That doesn't mean the
Wildcats will win every game; it
means only that you can expect
the team will be tough, that the
coaches care about the team's
reputation, and that mediocre
will not be good enough. In the
end, those are the things that sep-
arate the top high school teams
from the rest of the pack.
In just his second season, Bob-
by Johns and the Wildcat coach-
ing staff are headed in the right
direction. The Cats are 6-1 this
year, giving Johns an 11-6 record
as the Wildcat head coach. If you
ask Coach Green, I bet he would
tell you he is proud to see the
Wildcats regaining some of the
reputation back from years gone
by. I'll talk to Coach Johns about
getting a Baker County-Colum-
bia County game on the schedule
next year. Boy, I'd like to see that
game.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday October 18, 2007 Page 14


Volleyball team lost


two matches last week


The Lady Wildcat volley-
ball team struggled last week in
games against Columbia High
School and Ridgeview. At CHS
.the Cats were handed a straight-
set defeat by the scores of 25-19,
25-17 and 25-18.
"This by far was not our best
showing. We were lifeless and
we could not get anything going
offensively and defensively. Not
to take anything away from Co-
lumbia County, but we just hand-
ed the match to them, we did not
put up a fight," said a frustrated
coach Chris Armoreda. "If the
real Wildcats came to play, we
would have taken care of busi-
ness."
Statistical leaders in the game
were: Kills-Gray (4), Holton (2),
Dugger (2); Blocks-Norman (3),
Holton (3), Dugger (2), Coffell
(1); Assists-Kennedy (4), Smith
(2).


Cross-country


Ridgeview was a key district
contest, and the opponents took
the court with a better attitude
and demeanor. This match was a
very exciting one. The Cats bat-
tled Ridgeview point-for-point
and though the team lost the
match '26-28, 25-20, 23-25 and
22-25, they were hard-fought.
"The girls had to overcome
some of their miscues but they
played with such positive emo-
tion that they did not let any er-
rors stop them from playing their
best. Even though the outcome
is not what the team wanted, it
showed them that if they play as
a team and trust each player, who
knows how far they will go?"
said Armoreda. The Wildcats
travel to First Coast on Thursday
for the final game of the regular
season. The district tournament
kicks off at BCHS on October
22nd.


teamsfinish


5th, 8th atLake City Invite


The Wildcat boys' cross coun-
try team finished 5th in a 10-team
meet at the Lake City Invitational
at Columbia High School on Sat-
urday. The girls finished 8th.
Coach Charles Ruise was
pleased with the finishes as the
teams get ready for the upcom-
ing district meet in a couple of
weeks.
"It was a good job by both
teams. They came out and com-
peted well," said Ruise. "The
invitationals give our athletes
the feel of a district meet set-
ting, allowing them to gain some
valuable experience for the com-
petition they will face there. I'm.
encouraging them to keep up the
good work because I feel very


confident about our chances
come district time."
Luke Kennedy finished first
for the Cats with a time of 18:25.
Evan Ward was second with a
time of 18:55, Robert Mason
third with a time of 19:17; Tim-
my Mason fourth with a time of
19:22; Raphael Jackson fifth at
21:33; Cory Cavanaugh came in
sixth with a time of 23:08.
For the girls, Alexandria Ro-
hde was the top finisher forBCHS
with a time of 25:37. Shea Raul-
erson was second with a time
of 26:16; Ariel Luffman third at
31:17; Brittany Dale fourth in
33:49; Sylvia Sotomayor fifth
with a time of 35:56; Krystal
Langeburg sixth at 35:59.

Dracula (Josh Willoughby) prepares to bite the unsuspecting Mina
Murray (Alex Gotay) in a scene from the BCHS production of Dracula.



Add 'bit to yourweek



with 'Dracula' atBCH5


Be prepared to be 'scared -
very scared.
The BCHS drama department
will present Dracula this Thurs-
day and run Oct. 18-21 and Oct.
25-28. Dracula is the classic
horror tale of the Transylvanian
vampire who comes to England
to terrorize London. He is dis-
covered by an intrepid group of
scientists who seek to find a way
to stamp out this evil by way of a
crucifix and wooden stake.
The play is set both in Tran-
sylvania and an English country
home. The elaborate set and cos-
tumes help to set the mood for
this Victorian melodrama. Drac-
ula is a great way to get into the
spirit of Halloween.
BCHS Drama Hall of Fame
member Josh Willoughby re-
turns to the BCHS stage as the
Transylvanian Count. Garrett
Lucas is Professor Van Helsing,
who has been seeking him for
years. Spencer Norman-Gerard
is Dr. Seward, whose sanatorium
