Glen tract
Press staff
A 121-acre subdivision
southwest of Glen St. Mary
gained the unanimous approval
of Baker County's Local Plan-
ning Agency October 25th.
The development, proposed
by Drees Homes of Florida,
will feature half-acre lots and
should go before the county
commissioner at its meeting
November 15. The LPA's rec-
ommendation is not binding.
The Drees development has
been under discussion with
the county planning staff since
May. It originally went before
the LPA on May 24, when resi-
dents of the nearby Glenwood
subdivision raised concerns
about drainage impacts. At that
time, Drees asked a decision be
deferred until the LPA's June
21st meeting.
The LPA couldn't pull to-
gether enough members at that
meeting to achieve a quorum,
and by state law could not
make decisions. It was at that
non-meeting that the Drees
decision was put off until last
In that time, Drees has suc-
cessfully worked with Glen-
wood residents, county plan-
ning staff and the town of Glen
St. Mary to resolve the drain-
age concerns. The half-acre
lots will be served by central
water services and septic tanks.
County planning director Ed
Preston and his staff gave the
proposal their approval.
"Drainage issues have been
preliminarily addressed to the
satisfaction of planning staff,"
Mr. Preston said.
The LPA's chairman, Jack
Baker, said Thursday he had
serious concerns about the
septic tanks. But he said later
in the meeting that he voted
in Drees' favor out of fear of
legal repercussions. The board
was advised at the end of its
meeting that they were legally
empowered only to vote ac-
cording to a proposal's com-
pliance with the county's com-
prehensive plan.
"My concern with septic
tanks on half-acre lots, I ex-
pressed to [Drees], is the health
and long-term effect on the
county as we move forward in
trying to provide sewer capa-
bilities," Mr. Baker said. "I felt
like the half-acre is too dense,
plus the drainage in proximity
to the river on this particular
The board also unanimously
approved two other small-scale
zoning and land use changes.

The 1998 Chevrolet SUV (left in photo)
was attempting to make a U-turn from
the eastbound shoulder of CR 125 just
south of I-10 when it was struck by the
northbound 1997 Dodge, resulting in
injuries to both drivers and their pas-
sengers. Trooper J. Barry of the Florida
Highway Patrol said Dawn Kimber, 18,
of Macclenny, the driver of the SUV was
flown to Shands Jacksonville following
the 6:00 pm accident October 30, as
was her passenger, 13-year-old Eliza-
beth Cannon of Macclenny. Cynthia
Starling, 25, the driver of the Dodge,
and passenger Dalton Starling 6, re-
ceived minor injuries. Ms. Kimber was
charged with making an improper turn.

Ginger Barber of Macclenny, who signed
on as executive director of the Baker County
Chamber of Commerce two decades ago and
became one of Florida's experts in enterprise
zones to attract industry, died after
a long battle with cancer early on
October 30. She was 61.
Ms. Barber, a native of Savan-
nah, drew the attention of the Flor-
ida Department of Commerce [now
Enterprise Florida] for her dogged
efforts establishing two zones in
Baker County, joint efforts between
the county commission and Baker
County Development Commission,
for which she served also as execu-
The projects took years to come
to fruition, but were rewarded with
a trifecta of successes landing new Ging
jobs and an infusion of commer-
cial tax base revenues to Baker County. The
crowning achievement, one that drew the
attention of growth experts regionally, was
bringing the Wal-Mart Distribution Center
to Enterprise East near Macclenny in 2001.

It opened the next year with nearly 1000 em-
ployees and base pay above $11 an hour a
rate unheard of in Baker County before that.
It was lauded as "Deal of the Year" among
Florida's 67 counties by the com-
merce department.
Mr. Barber was key also in lur-
ing Sanderson Pipe and last year,
Hanson Tile to Enterprise West
near Sanderson.
She maintained a close working
relationship with regional growth
and planning groups and kept
Baker County's name at the fore-
front of availability when industrial
prospects took a look at northeast
Florida. The core of her enterprise
blueprint was a revolving pool of
$5 million funded by the state, and

as a team effort. Tracts were ini-
tially purchased by the county through the de-
velopment board, which was then repaid via
property tax revenues.

Press staff
County officials remain in
discussions with the develop-
ers behind the proposed Cedar
Creek retirement community.
But planning director Ed Pres-
ton told county commissioner
at a workshop Monday that the
development cost was likely
to eventually reach more than
$100 million.
While negotiations remain
ongoing between the coun-
ty and .Adrian Development
Group, Mr. Preston made
available a spread sheet Mon-
day estimating that Adrian
would likely have to pay more
than $48 million to expand
and improve roads affected
by Cedar Creek. According to
Mr. Preston's preliminary data,
the most expensive improve-
ments will likely come on I-
10, specifically, a stretch of
road from US 301 to Brannan
Field Chaffee Rd. Taking that
four-lane stretch and giving it
six lanes will cost more than
$36 million.
But while I-10 would re-
ceive substantial improve-
ments, several sections of US
90, SR 121, SR 228 and CR
125 would also be ticketed for
changes. The state and county
determine which roads would
be, in the words of Mr. Pres-
ton, "broken" by the devel-
opment; that is, which roads
would have to bear an unsafe
traffic load as a result of Cedar
Creek. Adrian does not have to
pay for all of the road improve-
ment costs.
Mr. Preston said that coun-
ty school officials remain in
negotiation with Adrian over
how the developer will miti-
gate Cedar Creek's impact on
the school system. While Ce-
dar Creek would largely be a
retirement community of 7000
residences, enough younger
families would move in to
strain the local school system.
At present, Mr. Preston said,
the school board is demand-
ing Adrian build a new school.

Ginger Barber...

(From page 1)
She was an expert in devel-
opment financing vehicles, aind
in the case of Enterprise East, in
securing vital infrastructure like
utilities via a deal with the City
of Macclenny.
When Ms. Barber was first
hired in the late 1980s, Baker
County boasted a few private
industries to offset the glut of
state jobs made available via
Northeast Florida State Hospital
and the prison system. The for-
mer Wiremil opened the decade
before in Sanderson, and Baker
County suffered-a huge psy-
chological blow when General
Electric located a panel board
plant in the former Macclenny
Industrial Park, then vacated
the premises after a few years.
It was purchased at a "fire sale"
price by Macclenny Products,
a sewing operation for clothing
retailers that remains there to-
Among Ms. Barber's ac-
colades were the 2005 Re-
gional Award for Excellence in
Economic Development and
Tourism, the Eunice Sullivan
Economic Development Pro-
fessional Award in 2002. and a
prominent listing among Wom-
en of Excellence by the Jackson-
ville Business Journal, in 2005.
A reserved and intensely pri-
vate woman in a very public
position, Ms. Barber deflected
attention away from herself
and spoke in terms of team ef-
forts with the chamber and de-
velopment board. The past few
months as her health deteriorat-
ed, she shared executive duties
with Darryl Register, a longtime
member of the development
board and owner of one of the

only remaining dairy farms in
northeast Florida.
"Ginger poured her heart and
soul into the chamber and into
the development commission,
not for personal recognition but
because it was the best thing to
do for Baker County," said Mr.
Register. "I consider it a huge
honor to be Ginger's successor,
and I know everything I do to-
day and everything I do in the
future will be easier because of
the foundation she put in place
for us to build upon."
A former airline stewardess,
Ms. Barber was raised in Sa-
vannah and Bluffton, S.C. She
moved to Baker County in 1972,
about three years after marry-
ing Stacey Barber, a Macclenny
native who was employed as a
flight engineer with the former
Miami-based National Airlines.
Two of their children survive.
In recent years, Ms. Barber
served as secretary to the Baker
County Hospital Authority and
its non-profit arm Baker Medi-
cal Services, Inc. under a paid
contract arrangement.
She first "dove" into the pub-
lic eye spearheading the effort to
rehab an unused and deteriorat-
ing county pool in the late 1970s
on property where the Mac-
clenny post office now stands.
From there, she parlayed what
she learned into the county's
first private pool maintenance
business, a job she kept until
she signed on with the chamber
in 1987. Shortly after, she im-
mersed .herself in moving the
office from small quarters on
South 5th to a renovated US 90
location where the chamber and
development headquarters are

Ginger Barber: her work ethic and resolve Allege that

paid huge dividends for Baker County coach re-set


The ideal person for a tough
job: unassuming, there on week-
ends and at night if the need
arises; an ability to see the big
picture and stay on task through
frustrating setbacks; willing to
share the credit and fend off the
There you have Ginger Barber,
longtime chamber of commerce
director who died this week.
When she took the job in the
late 1980s, she often remarked
that Baker County needed, and
needed badly, an infusion of pri-
vate-sector jobs to offset a lop-
sided workforce dependant on
government salaries and help tip
the tax base toward commercial
and industrial revenue sources.
Ginger Barber, more than any-
one else in Baker County alive or
dead, did more to get that vision
on the right track.
When she first took the job,
there was trepidation. Ginger
was not a "back-slapper" with
a gregarious chamber of com-
merce persona. Her technique
was more reserved, paralleling
her personality.
But for sheer resolve and a
quiet determination to get the
job done, she was unbeatable. In
fact, given the choice of some-
one with a "chamber" personal-
ity [and oftentimes all talk] and
Ginger Barber, Baker County got
it right.
She found a unique way to
fprge out the infrastructure that
most attracts industrial pros-

They want "ready-to-go"
sites, she often preached. They
want to see a chamber that works
in unison with local government
while maintaining a healthy busi-
ness climate.
Ginger understood that before
any of us, and set about finding
the way to do it. In fact, she be-
came an expert in Florida putting
together "enterprise zones" for
that purpose, and pushed for sub-
stantial public money from Talla-
hassee to pump prime the effort.
She recognized the value of




regional cooperation, casting
aside the traditional "me first" at-
titude of local chambers when it
comes to luring new industry. As
both a board member and active
participant in agencies like the
regional planning council and
Jacksonville Chamber's round-
table, she gave Baker County a
Her biggest catch, of course,
was the Wal-Mart Distribution
Center. Ginger Barber acted like
the hub of a wheel, connect-
ing myriad elements that had to
merge to make the deal happen.

for him to see. With the short-

Jail would bring security

Dear Editor:
I would like to comment on the ongoing opposition of several resi-
dents to the site of the new jail.
They are only speculating on how a jail in their "backyard" could
affect their lifestyle and their children. Yet they ignore the needs of the
Let's be realistic. No one wants to live near a jail or prison, but
everyone wants the law to be tough on crime. I was born and raised in
Baker County, and I know firsthand that the county desperately needs
a new jail to accommodate a growing population.
The positive aspects of having a new jail at the proposed site are: an
increased police presence in the area, a more secure facility, and a very
clean and well-maintained area surrounding the jail.
I encourage all residents to look at all factors before protesting, and
also realize that if an inmate does escape, he or she will want to get far
away from the surrounding area!

Dear Editor:
Please help us understand
why the head of the Baker Coun-
ty Touchdown Club would allow
a team to re-schedule a senior
league football game so one of
its players could go on a hunting
This was done so the coach of
the Patriots could have the ad-
vantage in a game the next night,
when the Falcons would have
two of their top players missing
due to deaths in their families.
Also,we don'tunderstand why
all of the coaches in this program
have to deal with players missing
games due to injuries, schedules
or family'obligations.
Yet, never has a game been
re-scheduled for a team missing
a player until the Patriot's coach
was about to play one of the
toughest games in the last three
years, during which he hasn't
Shad a loss.
Also, why did one of the of-
ficials in that game see two times
that the Patriots had 12 men on
the field during a key play that
resulted in a touchdown run?
More than a dozen fans saw
and heard the official tell the Pa-
triots' coach he had 12 men on
the field, yet there was no flag
thrown. The official then stated to
the coach, "You owe me one."
The Youth League program is
for kids and should not be sub-
ject to this kind of leadership
example. We should be setting
positive and honorable examples
for these kids. : ,,,
SWhy is this about one.cpach's
ego and not about the kids?
Showing kids that this kind of
behavior is okay is wrong, and
letting such things happen is a
disgrace to the league.
Some people should take a
step back and think about the
consequences that await children
if they are taught the wrong val-
ues at a young age.

Arrest for death threats, attack on wife

Husband upset after admonishment for driving drunk with child in vehicle

Police arrested a Macclenny man who al-
legedly attacked his wife and threatened to
kill her following an argument that started
the afternoon of October 27 when she ad-
monished him for driving drunk with their
9-month old daughter in the vehicle.
The first confrontation took place that
afternoon, and deputies were called to the
couple's residence off Wilkerson Rd. early
the next morning after Stephen Collett, 26,
returned home and struck wife Brittany, 18
in the face and head, then tried to choke her
with his hands and with a pair of pants. He
also ransacked the premises before Ms. Col-
lett fled with their child.
Deputy Jeff Dawson said he observed
signs of a struggle on the wife's hands and
legs, and when questioned about a cut on his
chin, Mr. Collett said he got it at work.
Deputy Dawson said when the suspect
was being escorted to a patrol vehicle fol-
lowing his arrest, he stated, "You can't do
this. I know Judge [Joey] Williams and the
sheriff. They will get me out of this."
He was booked for domestic violence as-
sault and battery, and the incident was re-
ported to the Department of Children and
Families because the baby was present.

In another domestic violence case that
had similarities, a criminal complaint was
filed October 26 against Russell Tillman, 28,
of Macclenny for battery of girlfriend Lisa
Seabolt, 24, at their residence off Ben Rowe
Ms. Seabolt told Deputy Claude Hurley
that the boyfriend consumed both alcohol
and drugs while they argued that day, then
struck and choked her after threatening to kill
her if she left with their 3-year-old daughter.
The girlfriend said she passed out from the
first of two choking attacks, and Mr. Tillman
took her car keys after telling her to leave.
She fled to a neighbor's.
The suspect then drove "aggressively"
around the neighborhood, according to the
incident report, and left the area about the
time police arrived. He was reached later by
cellphone and refused to give a statement.
The complaint charges battery domestic
violence and child abuse because the attacks
were witnessed by the daughter.
Brian Patterson, 27, of Macclenny was
charged with domestic violence battery for
allegedly picking up his girlfriend by the
head and tossing her off the front porch of a
residence off Shave's Bluff Rd. about noon

on October 27.
Tanya Clemons, 27, told Deputy Erik
Deloach that Mr. Patterson became angry
during an argument, and a witness said she
drove up and found the girlfriend lying on
the ground. Mr. Patterson was walking away
and denied he struck her, a statement similar
to the one he gave the arresting officer.
Deputy Deloach said the couple have a
child who was not present.
Brothers Michael Hamilton, 23, of Mac-
clenny and Christopher Hamilton, 22, of
Glen St. Mary were arrested the evening of
October 23 following a confrontation involv-
ing numerous persons on Debbie Lane.
Deputy Curtis Ruise said an argument
broke out when the younger brother's girl-
friend, 18-year-old Amberay Reed, called
family members to pick her up from the
older brother's residence. The couple had
moved there recently and she told Deputy
Curtis Ruise "things were not working out."
The officer's report said the brothers ar-
gued with Ms. Reed's family members, and
neighbors joined in. Christopher was arrest-
ed for fighting and resisting arrest; Michael
was charged with disorderly conduct.

been looking for an expansion
avenue for several years, includ-
ing purchase and expansion of
the former ABC Liquors build-
ing to the east.
"We knew a while back we
needed more room at the exist-
ing restaurant, and we think now
this will be the best fit for the
area," said Mr. Rhoden, a Baker
County native who also owns a
Woody's in Orange Park.
The commercial zone took
a huge traffic and activity hit
earlier this year when Wal-Mart
moved from South 6th to the

SR 228-Interstate 10 location.
Winn-Dixie completed an ex-
tensive renovation earlier this
year, a prototype store coin-
ciding with the grocery giant's

emergence from bankruptcy.
But closer to the interstate
where the ABC store closed
several months ago, the new de-
velopment for which a ground-
breaking was held on October
30 should be good news for
existing retailers. The nearby
Hardee's was supposed to un-

dergo a renovation completed
next month, but the project has
been stalled.

A 17-year-old Macclenny
youth stopped for speeding on
SR 228 south the afternoon of
October 28 was driving on a li-
cense that had been suspended
five times.
Deputy Curtis Ruise said he
stopped a 2000 Dodge pickup
driven by the youth for going
83 in a 60 mph zone, and a com-
puter check turned up the prior
suspensions. The boy's parents
retrieved the vehicle, and said
they did not give him permis-
sion to have the truck. The youth
was ticketed for speeding.
Two days earlier, the same
suspect was named in a criminal
complaint for assault of a 14-
year-old male in a parking lot in
west Macclenny.
The younger boy was treated
at Fraser Hospital for a deep lac-
eration to the knee he sustained
when he fell against a parked ve-
hicle while being chased by the
suspect. Earlier, the youth drove
by the victim in a pickup truck
and sprayed him with standing
puddle water. He then confront-
ed the younger boy, who took
off running.
Another speeding motor-
ist pulled over near Interstate
10 and CR 12 south of Glen St.
Mary was arrested on a similar
charge after police learned -his
license had eight suspensions.
Deputy Sgt. Phil Duval said
he gave chase after he observed
the 1984 Ford Bronco driven by
Kevin Cohen, 30, of Jackson-
ville turn onto 125 from US 90
at a high speed about .1:30 am on
October 24.
Gregory McGoogin, 44, of
Sanderson was arrested the after-
noon of October 22 for being at
the wheel of a vehicle involved
in a minor accident in the park-
ing lot of the Kangaroo store on

'Sews up' market for purses

Seamstress puts talents to work with custom designs

What started as a hobby and a
way to pass the time has turned
into an occupation for talented
seamstress Shirley Earnest.
The Macclenny resident's
knack for sewing is paying off
in ways she never dreamed.
Her custom-designed purses,

college sports. She can hardly
keep up with the demand for Ga-
tor, Jaguar and Bulldog purses.
A recent search turned up a red
and black fabric with a Wildcat
design and she is now producing
bags with that emblem.
"No one is more surprised
by all this than me," said Ms.
Earnest, who grew up in Colum-
bus, Georgia. She is having fun,
making new friends and getting
out of the house not to men-
tion the welcome benefit of extra
pocket change.
She learned sewing in her
high school home econom-
ics classes and later worked in
sewing factories that produced
clothing. She has used this expe-
rience throughout her life, mak-
ing clothing for her family and
anything needed in the home
such as curtains and table cloths.
After moving to Macclenny 15
years ago, she worked as a wait-
ress and made clothing for the
bus ministry at Emmanuel Bap-
tist Church on Lowder Street.

As part of the church's out-
reach program, local children
from underprivileged areas
were invited to attend church
and when they didn't have a way

them up. Often, a child would
hesitate to come because of not
having "church clothes." That's
when Ms. Earnest would step
in and make the child an outfit

clothes for the ministry until it
was discontinued several years

improve her spirits. According

made a few handbags by in-

was immediate and she's been

themselves. She jokes that peo-

she has made nearly 300 purses

"I always carry one with me

Theft victims pointfingers

to allegedly addicted relatives

in two recentproperty crimes

Younger relatives who allegedly have drug addictions were named
by victims of two property crimes the past week.
Robert Leighton, 30, of Macclenny was charged with petty theft
and shoplifting of tobacco products from Johnny's Snack and Gas
convenience store near Twin Bridges on October 27.
He was named as a suspect by his father Larry, owner of the store
just south of the state line on SR 121. The younger Leighton was
working as a store clerk the previous evening and admitted to Deputy
John Hardin he took 30 packs of cigarettes and cigars and stowed
them in a cooler that was later found. He is also suspected of taking
$83 from a cash.drawer.
Mr. Leighton was arrested on two second-degree misdemeanors,
and his family requested he remain jailed until he can be admitted to
drug treatment.
Two days earlier, the same deputy investigated a home burglary off
CR 23D where the step-son of the victim was named as a suspect.
Barbara Porterfield said a $1600 diamond cluster ring was taken
from a box in her bedroom, along with a jar containing coins. She
returned home the evening of October 23 to find the property miss-
ing, and named Robbie Porterfield, 29, as a likely suspect. She told
Deputy Hardin the suspect has stolen-from the residence before.

Bizarre outbursts lead

to arrest ofRaiford man

A Raiford man who was ver-
bally confronting customers at
the Raceway station near Inter-
state 10 and SR 121 the after-
noon of October 26 was arrested
for disorderly conduct and pos-
session of medication for which
he did not have a prescription.
Deputy Curtis Ruise said
he was advised about 4:30 by
a passing motorist that Steven
Fautt, 21, was behaving in a bi-
zarre manner, and when he ar-
rived at the station the suspect
was standing by his 1991 Ford
and yelling at a customer who
was trying to calm him down.
Mr. Fautt was crying and agi-
tated, smelled. of alcohol and
had slurred speech, said Deputy
Ruise. He began yelling at a cus-
tomer at a gas pump and refused
to calm himself.
The officer during a routine
pat-down found. a ,plastic pill
container in the suspect's pants
pocket and it contained pain kill-

ers and anti-seizure medicine.
The evening of October 23,
Deputy John Hardin arrested
Rahdall Johns, 41, of Macclen-
ny for possession of drug para-
phernalia a bent beer can and
steel wool commonly used for
smoking crack cocaine..
The officer stopped Mr. Johns
on US 90 in Macclenny after
he was advised the suspect had
gone to several residences ask-
ing for money. The items were
on the front seat of Mr. Johns'
2000 Pontiac.

Startled but enthusiastic visitors exit the haunted jail. PHOTOBYKELLEYLANNIGAN

'Horror-filled maze entertains

at annual old jail Halloween Lest

Press Staff
Baker County folks got a
chance to have the starch scared
out of them during a two-night
frightfest held at the old jail on
McIver Street October 26 and
The annual Haunted Jail Hal-
loween Tour attracted scores of
people looking for a family at-
traction good for a few thrills
that wouldn't break the pocket
The event is a collaboration
between the Baker County His-
toric Society, which manages
the jail, and students from Baker
High. The maze-like cellblock
portion of the building is turned
into a pit of horror.
Inside, police officers with
flashlights (high school students)
escorted visitors on a stomach-
churning journey during which
the "undead" sprung forth from
dark, dungeon-like rooms filled
with smoke from dry ice and
illuminated by flashing strobe
lights. The effect was unnerv-
Those brave enough to take

the tour caught glimpses of
ghoulish monsters, zombies,
vampires, scenes from a night-
marish doctor's office and chain
saw wielding evil clowns lurch-
ing toward them in the flashing
As they left the haunted maze,
people looked dazed and relieved
to get back outside. Frightened
children clung to parents who
laughed shakily, trying to assure
them that it was all just make-
As one group made its exit, a
young man grabbed a porch col-
umn for support, shut his eyes
and breathed hard to still his
racing heart. He then exclaimed
to his friends, "I think I should
have worn my brown pants!"
"The students from the high
school help us with this each
,year," said Joan Waters of the
historical society. "The commu-
nity really seems to enjoy it."
Not everyone ventured in-
side the haunted old jail. Many
listened to the screams coming
from inside the dark building,
but remained a safe distance
away at the refreshment stand

which was manned by historical
society volunteers. Comments
such as "Man, no way am I goin'
in there," could be heard from
the restless crowd.
Of the haunted exhibits, par-
ticularly creepy was the "red
room" with its bright paint the
color of blood peeling from
the walls. Allegedly, an inmate
hanged himself from the over-
head light fixture. A scrap of
bedsheet still remains wound
tightly around the base of the
"The story associated with
this room always intrigues peo-
ple" said David Richardson,
president of the Historical So-
ciety. "The jail and historical
society is undergoing a renova-
tion, but someone suggested we
leave that one room just like it
is so people can g6t a fist-hand
impression of what the jail was
like in its early years. We might
do that."

Stranded car struck by train
A Glen St. Mary youth jumped free of an approaching eastbound
CSX freight train the evening of October 27 after he drove his car
onto the tracks.
David Robinson, 17, told FHP Trooper Dan Myers he was dis-
tracted by a CD player and neglected to turn onto Franklin Ave. from
Jefferson Ave. about 8:30. He stranded his 1991 Pontiac on the tracks
by driving onto them from the south right-of-way.
Engineer Wylie Gilkey of Green Cove Springs activated the emer-
gency braking system, and the freight slowed to about 15 mph when
it struck the car, dislodging it from the tracks.

In Memory
of our mother,
Ruby Lee Davis

Its been a year since you left

have of you. We miss and love

states: "For he who has died
has been acquitted from sin."
Romans 6:23 states: "For the
wages of sin pays is death. But
the gift God gives is everlasting
life by Christ Jesus our Lord."

In Memory
of our mother,
Pearl L. Paige
You were a precious gift from
God above, So much beauty,
grace and love. Your smile so
bright, even on the bad days.
You heard
God's -
you home.
You didn't ,
want to go
and leave
us.alone. ''
You loved A
us so
you held
on tight, Ms. Paige
till all
the strength was gone and you
could no longer fight.
God had called your name
before, but this time you knew
you couldn't make him wait
So you gave your hand to God
with Auntie Hilda by your side
and slowly slept away. Knowing
that with out love, we will be
together again some day.

In Memory
of Nana,
Pearl L. Paige
Its has only been a year since
you've been gone.
But I could have sworn you
were just here yesterday.
Your soft hands,
Just a faint touch
I heard you yelling my name,
Just an echo in my head.
I saw you looking at me,
Just a watchful stare.
I think about you everyday, but
it just isn't the same seeing you
That's why every night I kneel
on my knees and pray, Lord,
save my soul, so I can see my
blue-eyed Nana once again.

In Memory
Pearl L. Paige

Dear Nana,
It's been a whole year, that life
without you here, has gone by.
Closing my eyes, I can just
reminisce of the good days and
bad days that I miss.
The times you heard my muf-
fling cry. Saying "girl what's
the matter now?"
Then you would say, "baby
hush that fuss" because every-
thing's gonna be alright.
The secrets I told you, that you
kept inside, even when I was
wrong, you never judge or hurt
me, but made sure to tell me
Words you spoke with love and
meaning, seem to give much
Even though you're gone, your
spirit lives on.
And Nana, we still have one
more song.

Thanks everyone
The family of Raymond M.
Hines would like to thank ev-
eryone who sent cards, flowers,
food, phone calls and prayers
during our time of loss. A special
thanks to Rev. Albert Starling
for a wonderful service and also
the Ladies of Glen Friendship
Tabernacle for preparing the de-
licious food for the viewing and
after the funeral and thanks to
the Hurd family for singing.
God bless ya'll.

Press staff
Give Lucious Lee a chance to run over a defender, and
he'll seize it with little hesitation. Give him a chance to
answer a question with a simple "yes" or "no," and he'll
take it with no hesitation.
Lee.isn't the talkative sort. But his performance on the
field requires little bragging. Operating in an offense that
relies heavily (and at times almost exclusively) on its run-
ning game, Lee is both a featured back and a favorite target
for opposing linebackers. With 973 yards on 127 carries,
Lee ranks second on the Wildcats in
rushing. (Quarterback Carlos Holton i
is number one) He has carried the
ball more often than any Wildcat.
"I kind of like it," Lee said of be-
ing the focus of opposing teams. ,
It's one thifig for a running back
to carry a heavy load. It's another for 'i-
him to carry that load on a pair of

questionable hamstrings, as Lee has
done all season. In Baker County's
28-21 win over Raines on September
21, Lee gained 186 yards on 12 car-
ries. Impressive, especially consider-
ing the senior could barely walk on
the sidelines.
And he was able to gain 100 yards
and tote the ball 20 times in the win
over Suwanee despite his hamstrings
flairing up again. Ronald Lee, Lu-
cious' father and Baker County's run-
ning backs coach, was torn watching
his son on the sidelines. As a coach,
he needed his star running back in the
game against a district opponent. As
a father, it was heart-breaking.
"As a dad, it does bother me," the

Coach Ron Lee

Luscious Lee

Lucious Lee

elder Lee said. "But I'm his dad and coach too. Friday was
hard, because when he got hurt, it was his hamstring and
groin. When I looked over at him, he was crying. If he's
crying, he's really hurt."
Lucious was able to grit his teeth and gut his way
through the game. Ron Lee has been coaching his son ever
since Lucious began playing youth football, with the ex-
ception of Lucious' two-year stint at Baker County Middle
One of the areas where Ron Lee has trained his son is
the weight room. Lucious, who is listed at 5'10 on Baker
County's roster and at 5'9 on the recruiting website Scout.
com, won the 1A State weightlifting title when he bench-
pressed 390 pounds.
"I just work hard," Lucious said. "I put in a lot of
hours in the weight room. Many hours. About 20 hours
a week."
But for all the numbers Lee has posted at Baker County,
perhaps the most important to his future is the one he likely
will never achieve: 6'0. In a college game where the play-
ers continue to get bigger and faster, running backs who
don't measure 5'10 don't often get many looks from col-
lege scouts, unless they're blazing fast. And Lee, whose
40-yard dash time is listed on Scout at 4.75 seconds (4.4
seconds is generally considered very good), doesn't fit
the mold of the ideal tailback nowadays, especially as the
game evolves to feature more wide-open, spread option
Lucious readily admits that he uses his height as a mo-
tivating factor. His father, for one, has no doubts about Lu-
cious' ability compete at the Division 1 level.
"You have a lot of teams out there that are going back
to a basic running back," Ron Lee said. "You've got a
lot more teams that are looking for running backs, not so
much speedster guys, but guys they can give it to when
they need to. And he'll be that back. He's a durable back
for you."
Lucious said Monday that he had received strong in-
terest from Western Michigan, Ball State and Central
Florida. Though both Lee and the colleges are waiting on
the senior's transcript before any scholarship offers are ex-
tended, Lee said he was leaning toward UCF because of
the school's proximity to home.
For now, Lee's just 27 yards away from his second
1,000-yard rushing season in a row. If Baker County hopes
to succeed in the playoffs, the Wildcats will need the se-
nior to continue acting as a target for opposing defenses.

Press staff
Baker County used a balanced rushing attack
led by quarterback Carlos Holton to beat Suwan-
nee High-Live Oak 36-21 Friday night and es-
sentially guarantee the Cats a trip to the regional
Holton scampered for 275 yards and two
touchdowns on 23 carries. Beyond that, the se-
nior QB converted several long third downs with
his legs.
"Pretty much everything he did [Friday] was
spectacular," head coach Bobby Johns said.
"Thank goodness he's on our side, is all I can
The Wildcats seemed poised early Friday
night to rout -the Bulldogs, who are now 3-4
overall and 0-3 in the district. Suwannee was
able to convert a 3rd and 12 on the first pos-
session of the game, thanks to a scramble from
quarterback David Campbell. But,Cainpbll
fell short on another third-down scramble, *
and the Bulldogs were forced to punt.
The Wildcats took advantage on the ensu-
ing possession. Holton kept the ball on a 3rd
and nine, option read play and scampered 25
yards to the Bulldog 24-yard line. And the
quarterback was responsible for keeping the
drive alive on 4th and nine when he ran for 10
yards. Greg Williams, who would eventually
contribute 81 yards on nine carries, finished
the drive with an 11-yard touchdown run.
Baker County missed the extra point, but
a lucky bounce gave the Wildcats a golden
opportunity. On the ensuing kickoff Lucious
Lee, who was largely contained by the Bull-
dogs' rush defense, saw the ball squib off the
side of his foot. Once the ball hit the turf, it spun
right back into the oncoming Wildcat players.
Baker County recovered the inadvertent on-side
kick, and grabbed a 14-0 lead when Holton took
it in from 24 yards out. Holton shoveled a pass to
Williams for the two-point conversion.
But just as the Wildcats seemed on the verge
of an easy victory, their troublesome pass defense
bit them once again. On the Bulldogs' first play,
Campbell threw a 68-yard touchdown pass over
the head of Harold Moore. The sophomore was
able to get a hand on the ball, but the Suwannee
receiver hauled it in and took it to the end zone.
"We got burned because we lined up improp-
erly," Coach Johns said. "We lined up wrong, still
batted the ball, but then they come down with it.
It still could have been an incomplete pass had
we made the play on it."
The Wildcats, however, responded exactly in
the way their coach demanded. They embarked
on a marathon drive from deep within their own
territory that took almost eight minutes off the
clock and resulted in a two-yard touchdown run
by Lee. The back-breaker came on 3rd and 17

Crucial contests

The Wildcats clinched a playoff berth
with their win over Suwannee, and a lot of
other district standings became clear as teams
squared off against district rivals.
Raines knows it has a playoff berth in sight
after a 33-21 win over Bishop Kenny on Fri-
day. If the Vikings beat Jackson on Friday they
will be in the playoffs. Raines got an 87-yard
kickoff return in the second half from James
Williams to break open a close game. Bishop
Kenny came roaring back to tie it at 21 at the
end of the third quarter, but Raines got a 65-
yard drive to seal the game.
In other games involving past Wildcat
opponents, Bradford defeated Interlachen
43-7 as Robert Boswell, Jernard Beard and
Chuckie Covington combined for 271 yards
Bolles blanked West Nassau 31-0 to remain
undefeated. The Warriors are 4-5 this season.
Ocala Vanguard lost to Gainesville East-
side 34-3, and Union County defeated Dixie
County 34-28.

from the Suwannee 29-yard line, when Holton
kept the ball on an option and ran it 24 yards. Af-
ter the touchdown and two-point conversation,
Baker County had a 22-7 lead.
"It's real big," Coach Johns said. "Suwannee
was not the offensive team that Bishop Kenny
was, but they could hurt you offensively with
that quarterback running and throwing."
Suwannee proved the truth of Coach Johns'
words when, on its ensuing drive, Campbell ran
a draw out of a spread formation and rumbled 23
yards for a touchdown. It was not the last time he
would burn the Wildcats with that play.

Up 22-14, Baker County received the kick-off
at its own five-yard line with less than 1:30 on
the clock. It looked for all the world like a situ-
ation where the Wildcats would run up the mid-
dle, earn a first down and go into the half content
with an eight-point lead.
Coach Johns didn't think that way. After the
Wildcats marched to their 30-yard line, Holton
broke a magnificent, field-reversing, tackle-
breaking 69-yard run to the Bulldog one-yard
line. He punched it in on the very next play, giv-
ing Baker County a 30-14 halftime lead.
"We were hoping to score," Coach Johns said.
"The reason being that we had played about as
good on offense as we could play in the first half.
And I wanted to try and get as many points on
the board as I could before they had a chance to
make adjustments in the second half."'
It proved a wise decision.
Though Holton notched a 40-yard touchdown
run on a bobbled snap in the Wildcats' first drive
of the second half, Baker County was largely shut
down after the break. Things became uncomfort-
ably close when, in the third quarter, Campbell

again swept through the Wildcat defense with
a draw out of the spread formation for a touch-
down, making the score 36-21. Coach Johns said
the two draws were successful because Baker
County had moved a safety out of the middle of
the field to defend the multiple receivers Suwan-
nee used on the play.
After Campbell's second touchdown, the
Wildcats kept defensive back Darvin Ruise in
the middle of the field. The strategy worked
when the sophomore intercepted a.deep pass in
the fourth quarter. But the Bulldogs had one last
Still down 15, Suwannee gathered in a punt
at the Baker County 40-yard line midway
through the fourth quarter. Three plays later,
with his team facing 3rd and 15, Campbell
completed a 32-yard pass deep into Wildcat
But unlike what happened so often last
year, Baker County dug in tostave, off a ate
game disaster. After Hank Farmer stopped
Campbell behind the line for a three-yard loss
on 3rd and eight, the Bulldogs faced 4th and
11 from their 13. Campbell threw a strike to
his receiver in the end zone. But though the
play was initially ruled a touchdown, the of-
ficials reversed their call and ruled the play
an incompletion. The Wildcats still had to run
down the clock. But they had essentially won
the game on that play.
S "That was huge," Coach Johns said. "Be-
cause now we're looking at them being down
one score, you know they're going on-side,
five and a half minutes to go in the game.
", There's plenty of time.
"You don't see those types of calls over-
turned very often. It was definitely not a catch."
With a 3-1 district record, Baker County can
finish no lower than second in the district. When
Raines and Jackson play November 2, the Wild-
cats will be interested spectators. A Raines vic-
tory would give Baker County a district cham-
pionship, while a Jackson win would slot the
Wildcats into the "wildcard" position.
But for all the good news coming out of Me-
morial Stadium Friday, not everything worked
flawlessly. The Wildcats again struggled with
their passing game; Baker County could gain only
three yards through the air, and Holton threw an
interception at a crucial point in the game. While
Coach Johns has always used a run-heavy of-
fensive scheme, the Wildcats' passing game has
largely fallen apart in recent weeks.
"I don't really have an answer for that," Coach
Johns said. "We have not worked [the passing
game] one minute less in practice than we did
last year or the beginning of this year or any oth-
er year I've had. For whatever reason, we're not
throwing it well. When we do throw it, we're not
catching it well."

'Cats to end regular season Friday

with 1-7 Potter's House Christian

Coach Bobby Johns' pre-sea-
son plan is turning out just like
he envisioned when he gazed
into the crystal ball while mak-
ing up his schedule. Johns put
the brunt of his face-mask bend-
ing, helmet-denting games"in the
middle of the season, so that if
the Cats got into the playoffs they
would have a slightly easier time
in their final game, then have an
open date to rest and recuperate.
That's the way it worked. The
win over Suwannee County on
Friday night assured the Cats of
a playoff spot. Now if Raines can
manage to defeat rival Jackson
this coming Friday, the Wildcats
could host a playoff game as dis-

trict champions.
If Jackson pulls out the win
and seals the district crown, the
Cats will have to file onto buses
to travel to playoffs. Either way,
the creative scheduling plays into
the Wildcats' hands.
Johns scheduled Potter's
House Christian, a small 1-A
Jacksonville school with a 1-7
record, for the final game of the
season and reserved his open
date for the end of the season.
The Cats will still prepare hard
for Potter's House, but even the
Lions' supporters would agree
that its not the same as preparing
for Raines or Jackson or Suwan-
nee. It's a chance perhaps to rest

some starters and give valuable
game experience to substitutes.
The Cats are in pretty good
shape physically. They have
some bumps and knocks from
Friday's physical game with Su-
wannee, but nothing that won't
One thing's for sure, the Cats
will know going into Friday's
game if they are the district
champ or runners-up. Raines
plays the remainder of its games
in the afternoon because of
threats of violence. So come
game time Friday night, Baker
County will know the outcome
of Raines-Jackson.

Lamenting the soon-to-end Jildcats 'regular season


Mike Crews

I wonder sometime where
time goes. Although the wait for
the beginning of football season
seems like an eternity to endure
every summer, the end of football
season comes swiftly and far too
quickly for those who follow the
game. It leaves behind memo-
ries, thoughts (some painful), and
hope for the beginning of a new
The Baker County Wildcats
football season is in the last week
of the regular schedule, and it re-
minds me of something I read on
the back of a baseball card years
ago. It was penned by A. Bartlett
Giamatti, the former commis-
sioner of Major League Base-
He entitled it "The Green
Fields of the Mind," and the fol-
lowing is an excerpt:
"It breaks your heart. It is de-
signed to break your heart. The
game begins in the spring, when
everything else begins again, and
it blossoms in the summer, filling
the afternoons and evenings, and
then as soon as the chill rains
come, it stops and leaves you
to face the fall alone. You count
on it, rely on it to buffer the pas-
sage of time, to keep the memory
of sunshine and high skies alive,
and then just when the days are
all twilight, when you need it
most, it stops."
Giamatti was speaking of a dif-
ferent sport altogether (baseball),
but the correlation is obvious.
Granted, college and pro foot-
.ball will keep us alive with foot-
ball fever for months to come,
but the high school football sea-
son that began a little over eight
weeks ago is coming to a close,
at least the regular season.

Thankfully for the Wildcats,
this past Friday night they served
up fans with at least one more
week. Given the Wildcats' 3-1
district record after the win over
Suwannee this past Friday, the
Cats have earned a playoff spot
for the 2007 season.
With this, the Cats could ex-
tend the season right up through
Thanksgiving with a long play-
off run, or it could end after one
week. Either way, more football
is yet to be played.
The Wildcats still await the
winner of this week's Jackson vs.
Raines game to determine the dis-
trict champion, but no matter the
outcome the Cats will be playing
in the post-season. Quite a re-
markable journey for a program
that less than two years ago ended
the regular season 0-10, and had
many Cat fans questioning the di-
rection of the team.
There won't be many question-
ing this year as head coach Bobby
Johns and his talented staff have
the Wildcats geared up for this
playoff run.
He'll have a couple of weeks
to get healthy before the playoffs
begin, I would guess Coach Johns
has big thoughts on his mind.
Congratulations to all who
have contributed to make this a
successful season for the Wild-
cats,. You deserve it, and I have
enjoyed watching.
This Week's Picks:
Last Week: 2 right-3 wrong
-The Potter's House @ Baker
Well, the Wildcats clinched the
playoff spot last week, and really
don't have anything to play for.
That normally means a team may
not get the win, but it will be Se-
nior Night, and the Wildcats cer-
tainly would love to finish the year
9-1. Go with the Cats 35 10.
-Vanderbilt @ Florida:
The Gators certainly are a
banged up group right now. Sev-

eral key defensive starters are out,
and Tim Tebow is hurting. The
season has not played out like
many Gator fans would like, but
the future still looks bright. The
Gators, with three losses already,
are playing for pride.
At home, I like the Gators 33
-LSU @ Alabama:
Boy, a few weeks ago, you
Wouldn't have given the Tide a
chance in this one. Coming off
of the embarrassing loss to lowly
Florida State, the Tide appeared to
be ready to fold. A couplehof im-
pressive wins later and the Tide's
got a shot at the SEC Champion-
ship. Too bad they have to beat
LSU to get there. LSU wins 28
-Jaguars @ Saints:

Man, the Jaguars are getting
Tough to pick this year. I thought
they would win October 22
against the Colts. That didn't hap-
pen. After that, I thought the Bucs
would get them at home. That
didn't happen.
Soooo, this week, I like the
Jags to beat the Saints, but I am
going to pick the Saints to win
27 20. Picking the Jags to lose
should make Jags fans happy, as
my record on predictions hasn't
been great.
Although the season is almost
over, we're still meeting every
Monday night at Calendar's Pizza
with Coach Johns.
Also, if you have a take on
sports, don't forget to email it to
