No more "Mr. Nice Guy"
when it comes to illegal driv-
ing of ATVs and golf carts on
Baker County roads.
The sheriff's department
announced this week it will
begin enforcing a state ban
on unlicensed recreational
vehicles on paved roads, along
with the statute that regulates
them on publicly-owned dirt
"We've allowed it in the
past and they're [careless and/
or underage drivers] taking ad-
vantage of us," asserted Sheriff
Joey Dobson earlier this week.
He was referring to an increas-
ing number of complaints
about 4-wheel vehicles speed-
ing on area roadways.
Henceforth, the sheriff says
he's instructed deputies to tick-
et violators. The minimum fine
is $76.50, but that can increase
if added offenses are detected.
Florida statute bans such
unlicensed vehicles on all
paved roads, and allows them
with certain conditions on dirt
roads. In the latter case, speed
must be kept under 35 mph
and riders under 16 must be
accompanied by an adult and
wear helmets. All other than
supervised children must be
licensed drivers.
As for golf carts, they are
banned on all roads save for
those designated by a county
or municipality, typically roads
adjacent to or running through
golf courses, and in closed
The only reserved roads in
Baker County for ATVs are
in the Osceola National For-
est, where miles have been set
aside for an increasingly popu-
lar activity. The rules govern-
ing use on public roads also
apply to adjoining rights-of-
way, and are restricted to day-
light hours.
"We don't want to start writ-
ing citations all over the coun-
ty. We just want it to stop,"
said Sheriff Dobson, calling
the existing situation a safety
hazard. Baker County has seen
a number of fatal and near-
fatal accidents involving off-
road vehicles since they were
first introduced in the 1980s.
"We'll be the first to admit
we haven't been enforcing the
statute, but deputies and the
public have reported increas-
ing numbers of violations and
we have to act."
Sheriff Dobson says depu-
ties will be instructed to use
discretion if they run across
situations that are not obvious
violations, for instance an off-
road vehicle crossing the road-
way from one .private tract to

Press Staff
The 20th 4F Big Bird Fly-
In of the Shadetree Miniature
Aircraft Association was held
November 1-3 in a field north
of Glen St. Mary. The $1155
raised from the event was do-
nated to the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life proj-
The radio controlled min-
iature aircraft of "big bird"
designation means that the
fly-in was specific to single
wing models with a minimum
80-inch wingspan and biplane
models with a wingspan of at
least 60 inches.
Many of the models were
scaled down replicas of planes
like the 1930s Stasser Wing
Beachcraft, Rose Parakeet Bi-
plane, a Robin Hood developed

by Curtis Aviation and a 1930s
PT19, usedas trainining craft for
WWII pilots.
The Shadetree club has ac-
cess to a 35-acre airfield off
CR 125 and features a 1000 by
200 foot smooth grass runway.
The 42-member club received
its charter in the late 1970s.

With Baker County consid-
ering an array of new develop-
ments, the county commission
unanimously agreed Tuesday
to ask the state to make the ap-
proval process easier.
By a vote of 4-0 (Gordon
Crews was absent from the
night's proceedings), the com-
missioners decided to ask the
state Department of Transpor-
tation to grant them a variance
on I-10.
FDOT sets a maximum traf-
fic flow on interstates. If a new
development pushes the flow
beyond that number, the devel-
opers will be forced to pay the
cost of improvements, in this
case expensive lane additions.
Baker County is asking
FDOT to push that maximum
figure higher. Darryl Register,
the executive director of Baker
County's Chamber of Com-
merce and the prime mover
behind the request, said the
variance would be crucial for
the county's future.
"Early in Governor [Jeb]
Bush's first term, we were
designated as a rural county
of critical economic concern,"
Mr. Register said. "And the
way to grow out of that is jobs.
Good jobs."
Mr. Register said that he
had assembled a group of lo-
cal landowners and interested
developers to handle all the
costs associated with the vari-
ance application. As a result,
he claimed, the county would
not have to pay anything for
the application.
Baker County's designation
as a "rural county of critical
economic concern" grants it
privileges with the state that
make development a much
simpler process.' Nonetheless,
in recent years developers
have consistently had trouble
convincing the state that their
projects did not "break" local
roads. Officials with both the
county and the city of Mac-
clenny have expressed frustra-
tion with what they consider to
be conflicting messages from
the state.
No timetable was given
Tuesday for a decision on the
In other business before
the board at its regular first
monthly meeting, the commis-
sioner unanimously agreed to
a revised memorandum of un-
derstanding regarding its plan
to maximize courthouse space.
Under the plan, the build-
ing and zoning department
will vacate its current offices
by May 1, 2008 to make room
for the public defender's office
currently located in the court-
That would start a chain re-
action eventually ending with
the county commission in a
new building ald most of the
courthouse staff re-located. If
everything works according to
plan, the game of governmen-
tal musical chairs would end in
October of 2009.
In a related motion, the
commissioners gave county
manager Joe Cone permission

Model airplanes: they're realto the enthusiasts...



(From page 1)
"That is how the planes did
skywriting back in the '30s" e\-
olained Mr. Mason.
Jiinifiy Potter, who hails from
Middleburg, traveled up with his
Extra 300 model plane, a gor-
geous piece of craftsmanship,
painted in an eye-popping shade
of bright green. It was 40% the
size of the actual full scale Extra
300 airplane.
"This is one of five models
I brought with me," said Mr.
Potter. "I painted this one with
Olympic exterior house paint."
Mr. Potter explains that the'
model is constructed mainly
out of components crafted from
balsa and basswood. A special
poly fibre fabric is stretched and
attached to the frame. When the
fabric is heated it behaves like

shrink wrap and adheres to the
frame. Pinking tape, which is
used in hair salons, is also used
to construct the models.
Radio controlled models op-
erate on a special band of FM'
frequencies designated by the
Federal Communications Com-
mission for flying model air-
A highlight was the candy
drop. A plane with a compart-
ment loaded with candy took off
from the runway as a group of
mesmerized kids watched from
behind a field barrier. The con-
troller toyed with the kids a bit,
sending the plane through sev-
eral fly-bys and aeronautic ma-
neuvers before giving a signal to
release the candy payload.
As the sweet stuff fell from
the sky, the kids took off, scram-
bling all over the field hoping

FDLE crime statistics

show most areas are up
If one looks at the percentages and not the raw numbers, Bak-
er County's murder rate skyrocketed during the first six months of
The number of murders went from zero during the same period
last year to two a 200 percent increase.
So reads the latest data released by the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement covering the period January-June of this year. The
overall crime index for Baker County jumped 22 percent, from 216
reported crimes last year to 264 in 2007. The county's clearance rate
for crimes slipped a full ten percentage points from 2006, and is most
recently at 50.4 percent.
The number of forcible rapes tripled from one to three; robbery
rose from three to four; aggravated assaults from 33 to 49; burglaries
dropped from 17 to 15; larceny shot up from 143 to 179 and car thefts
dipped from 19 to 17.
The figures are taken directly from the computer case reporting
systems in each of Florida's 67 counties.
The state as a whole witnessed a five percent drop in forcible sex
offenses; a .17 percent drop in aggravated assaults, and domestic vio-
lence crimes inched down .7 percent.
Statewide, violent crimes took a two percent jump while non-vio-
lent crimes went up 4.2 percent. The murder rate across Florida rose
13.7 percent for a 589 total.
The Baker County sheriff's department was one of 405 law en-
forcement agencies reporting.

around some of the candy.
Although the fly-ins are a
wonderful family event, there is
a lamentable side to the hobby of

Here are some more news
stories that you might have
missed. In the tradition of "truth
is stranger than fiction," some of
these are actual stories. The trick
to this column is to pick out the
actual news items from the ones
I've made up.
Critics of Evolution Boycott
ABC's Cavemen. Supporters of
Intelligent Design have started
an Internet campaign to boycott
the television program Cave-
men. The group, which does not
believe in the Theory of Evolu-
tion, does not believe cavemen
ever existed. "We think that
ABC is doing a disservice to
their audiences by having a tele-
vision show that promotes evo-
lution. We do not believe that
there is such a thing as cave-
men," said Oscar Schmidt of the
group Citizens for Accuracy in
Television (CAT).
Media critics tend to agree
that television would be better
off without Cavemen on the fall
77-Year-Old Man Steals
10000 Gallons of Gas. An el-
derly Florida man was arrested
last week in Polk County for
stealing up to 10,000 gallons of
gasoline from local service sta-
tions. The man had installed a
3000 gallon tank in an enclosed
trailer. He would park it over the
giant gasoline tanks buried in the
ground and siphon off the gas.
He pretended to be working on
his trailer while he pumped the
gas. At one point he had a pleas-
'" ant conversation with a highway
patrol officer while stealing gas.
He then sold the gas at his own
towing company.
Let Them Drink Wine. The
French city of Lille is in crisis.
A ten-year drought has left the
city's water supply severely de-
pleted. Not to worry, said Lille
mayor Herve Charbenaux. In
a nod to Marie Antoinette's fa-
mous "Let them eat cake," Char-
benaux ordered citizens to stop

drinking water with their meals
and instead drink wine. "It will
be a boon to our economy," said
le mayor. "Who would drink
water anyway when they could
drink Chablis?"
Who's Next, Big Bird for
President? Steven Colbert,
whose The Colbert Report, is
a tongue-in-cheek ultra-con-
servative spinoff of the wildly
popular and wildly liberal The
Daily Show, has announced his
candidacy for president. Oddly
enough, after only a week he is
beginning to appear on Repub-
lican polling data in Iowa and
New Hampshire. The kicker
was when Colbert got more
votes in a Republican straw
ballot in Iowa that Sam Brown-
back, US Senator from Kansas.
After looking at the polling data,
Brownback quipped, "At least
I'm doing better than Big Bird."
He withdrew his candidacy later
that day.
U R my BFF. The English
department at the University of
California at Davis announced
that it is starting a new course
entitled Modern Language in
Research Writing. Teachers will

encourage, not discourage, stu-
dents to use the abbreviated text
found in cell phone messages
and instant messaging in re-
search papers. "We feel that we
are on the cutting edge," said Dr.
Lewis Armitage. "If language
doesn't evolve and move with
the times, it will die."
ID K about that.
Those Crazy Canadians. In
response to a US plan to build
a 20-foot high fence across the'
2500 mile long US border with
Mexico, the Canadians an-
nounced that they will do the
same along the 4000 mile border
with the US. "We realize that it
is a big step," said Canadian
Chancellor of the Exchequer
Doyle Montpelier, "but we have
to do something soon to stop the
flood of people from the States
across our borders. Have you
any idea the number of seniors
that flood into border towns to
buy cheap prescription drugs on
a daily basis?" ,
Montpelier says that in border
towns like Sudbury, Winnipeg
and Vancouver have experienced
a shortage of prescription drugs
for their own citizens. "People

are having to go on line and buy
Viagra from Belize for goodness
sake. This has to stop."
A 25-year old man from Bid-
deford, Maine is auctioning off
permanent advertising space on
the back of his neck. The win-
ning advertiser will be able to
permanently tattoo his message
on the neck of Mark Greenlaw,
who is auctioning off his neck
space on E-Bay.
I just hope he doesn't have a
hairy back.
So there you are. Two of these
stories are actually true and the
rest I made up. The odd part is
that it's a little hard to tell.
Here are your true news sto-
ries: a Polk county septuagenar-
ian is in jail for siphoning off up
to 10,000 gallons of gas and re-
selling it. I guess that's one way
to beat the gas crisis.
Mark Greenlaw will an-
nounce the winning advertiser
on a Portland, Maine radio show
later this month. I hope its noth-
ing embarrassing. Now, does
he have to wear tank tops year
round? Pretty tough to do during
a Maine winter.

5 implicated in check scheme

The sheriff's department
said November 2 that five men
would be charged for alleged in-
volvement in an elaborate check
forgery scheme that might have
resulted in dozens of bad checks
being passed in Baker County.
Deputy John Hardin was first
alerted to a forged check Octo-
ber 31 by Mark Lee at Moody's
Chevron in Macclenny. Mr. Lee
told the officer he had cashed
three worthless checks in recent
days: one for $50 from Moham-
med Abdulaal, 18, one from
Jody Griffis, 18, for' $100 and
one for $120 from Josh Martin,
21. All three checks came from
a closed account belonging to
Wesley Bennett, Mr.' Griffis'
While Deputy Hardin was
initially unable to locate the
three, he did speak with Michael
Sheridan, 20, who was seen
driving ,Mr. Griffis and who al-
legedly admitted to knowing
that Mr. Griffis was passing a
forged check.
The next day, investigator
Brad Dougherty spoke with all
of the suspects except Mr. Mar-,
tin. According to Mr. Abdulaal,
he, Mr. Griffis, Mr. Sheridan and
a 17-year-old male met at the
CVS in Macclenny. From there,
they drove around trying to cash
a check belonging to Mr. Griffis.
According to Mr. Abdulaal, Mr.
Griffis said the check was from

his step-father who owed him
After failing to cash the
check at Raceway, they drove
to Moody's. There, the other
three convinced him to use his
Florida's driver's license to cash
the check, and he was able to
do so. At that point, Mr. Abdu-
laal told Investigator Dougherty,
the three men placed him in the
trunk of the car before driving to
Sanderson to buy marijuana.
Investigator Dougherty said
during an interview with Mr.
Sheridan, he admitted knowing
Mr. Griffis had stolen his step-
father's check book. Mr. Sheri-
dan said he did not fill out any
of the checks, but was, present
when almost all the checks were
The 17-year-old told Depu-
ty Dougherty that he "kind of
knew" the checks were stolen.
He said he had filled out and
signed four or five of the forged
checks. He also said he was
present for the cashing of 10-12
Mr. Griffis admitted to Dep-
uty Dougherty that he stole the
checks from his step-father and
cashed as many as 15. The men
would cash the checks and use
the money for food, gas and
Police said that the charges
against all four would come in
the way of sworn complaints to

the state attorney's office. They

be charged only for the three
checks cashed at Moody s, but
that more charges would be filed
once the other checks posted.
Jackie Lumpkin of Mac-

Ms. Lumpkin said she probably

15 year probation for

lewd acts arrest in '05

A Macclenny woman ar-
rested in the summer of 2005
for performing lewd acts in the
presence of a young relative was

file, and told investigators he
witnessed Ms. Ramirez engaged
in sexual acts with adults numer-
ous times between the ages 5-9.
In other cases during the
regular court session November

ing trial of Jeremiah Henderson,
the alleged robber.

After a very difficult few

moment to thank everyone for
the love and support you have
shown our family during this
tragic time. To those of you,
too numerous to name, who

of the times that Ira and Velma

who kept us in their thoughts

Sweetheart, it has been a year
since God called your name to
be with Him. Ricky and I miss
your smiling face, laughter and
beautiful voice.
If tears could build a stairway
to heaven I would walk there to
be with you. One day we will all
be together in heaven. You will
always be in my heart. I know
you are happy there with God
now and singing your beauti-
ful songs for Him. We miss you
very much but I know you are
looking in on us. I will always
love you and will be with you
again when the Lord calls me

The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning
that God was going to call
your name. In life we loved you
dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone; for part
of us went with you, the day
God called you home. You left
us peaceful memories, our love
is still our guide; and though
we cannot see you, you are
always at our side. Our family
chain is broken and nothing
seems the same; but as God
calls us one by one, the chain
will link again.

In Loving Memory
of Cassandra Leann
Hammonds Carter
It's been a year already since
you left without saying good-
bye. A year of change and mem-
ories, a year of asking why.
You left behind a newborn babe,
a five-year-old and a two. With
questions hard to answer, about
where their mom went, too.
You left behind a husband, with
a grieving, heavy heart, not
knowing how to answer, or even
how to start.
You left behind a mom and dad,
brothers and sister, too. You
left behind a lot of friends, not
knowing what to do.
We cannot change that fateful
day that took you from our life,
that took our hopes and dreams
away, a mom, a daughter, a
If tears could cure this heart-
ache, then we would be OK, for
you would be back here with us,
each and every day.
But you are with our Lord now,
and all is not in vain, for you
will fill His need now, accord-
ing to His plan.
And we are left with memories
that death can't take away, we
will hold on to them tightly
forever and a day.
And we will tell your children,
what the Lord puts in our hearts
and try to answer questions that
tear us all apart.
Little Logan wants to know why
he can't be an angel, too. Going
to heaven would be OK, as long
as he had you.
And Brookelyn has the blue
eyes you always wanted in a
child, though you never got to
see them, I know they'd make
you smile.
Jessilyn tries so very hard to
fill her Mommy's shoes, to take
care of her Daddy and her
brother and sister, too.
I know you would be proud of
them if you could only see, your
babies are all OK, I am keeping
them with me.
And we will tell them stories
about their mommies love and
how she always watches them
from her home above.

In Memory
Glenn L. Williams
I may miss you, but you're still
here. I will always remember
you and hold you dear. I'll re-
member your smile and laugh-
ter forever, and be assured that
you will leave me never. I may
miss you, but know and believe
you'll be standing in the dis-
tance giving me time to grieve.
When I think of you, I know
you've made peace with God.
You've joined in unity with a
new flock and you left with a
simple nod. I may miss you, but
when I reminisce about you, I
think of your eternal greatness.
For you have been set free out
of your misery.
I was a father and a friend,
remember me, but let me go.

to extend an offer of $385,000
to the owners of the Elegance N'
Bloom flower shop on South 5th
St. in Macclenny. The county's
plan is to then move the com-
mission's staff and the building
and zoning department to that
location until they had a new,
permanent facility. The offer is
contingent on an appraisal indi-
cating the building has a value
of at least $385,000.
The commission also in-
structed Mr. Cone to continue
negotiations with CSX Railroad
for the closing of a rail cross-
ing in Olustee. Roberts Land

is planning a Megaa site" near
Olustee that would feature an
industrial park.
Avery Roberts, the corpora-

the opening of a new public rail-
road crossing at the location of
its site. In order for that to hap-
pen, both CSX and FDOT are
asking the county to close one
other public crossing and one
private crossing.
The board said it would hold
a public hearing at the Olustee
fire house before making any
decisions. Mr. Roberts also of-

help the county build a public
The board also approved the
planning staff's initial set of
questions for its comprehensive
plan examination called "evalu-

law, the county is required to
examine its comprehensive plan
every seven years and revise it
The first step in that process
is the submittal to the state of 15
questions that the county will
ask itself. This year, the staff
will question its comprehensive
plan's ability to combat urban
sprawl, encourage safe develop-
ment, conserve natural resources
and dealwith other issues.

Raines hands Wildcats district title

Cats have easy

time with small

Potter's House

Press staff

he Wildcats' performance Friday
night after learning of their first dis-
trict championship since 2002 was
flawed, frustrating and plenty adequate for
the occasion.
It seemed obvious simply from watching
warm-ups that the Potter's House Chris-
tian Academy Lions were over-matched Abo
and under-sized. And nothing that oc-
curred during Baker County's 47-6
victory made that perception seem
Head coach Bobby Johns was not terrible .;
thrilled with his team's effort and focus. The '
Wildcats were told of their district champ ion-
ship just before boarding-the bus for the d r e
over to Memorial Stadium. When asked if he
was afraid his team would have a focus prob-
lem, Coach Johns responded simply.
"Absolutely, and we had one," he said
"We pretty much had it all night. I'm \eri\.
very disappointed in our execution offen, i \ e -
ly, disappointed in the fact that we allo \ ed
them to move the football on us and score
Nevertheless, Baker County was ne~er
close to being in danger from the Lions. The
Wildcats scored the first 26 points of the
game, including seven uii the opening kick-
6ff' when HWrold Moore rani-186 yards for u
After Potter's House went three and out.
Holton scampered in from 13 yards out, gi-
ing the Wildcats a 14-0 lead. The senior quai -
terback had his best passing performance in
several weeks, as he completed three in lie Ne
attempts for 44 yards.
After another three and out from the Li-
ons, Holton was able to salvage Baker Coun-
ty's next drive when he ran for 22 yards on
3rd and 19. Senior Lee Battles, the primary
rushing threat on Senior Night, finished thle ':"
drive with a 10-yard TD run. Potter's House '
fumbled on its next drive, and Harold Moor e t
rumbled 30 yards for a touchdown and a 26-0 I
It was at this point that things wen: off f "
the tracks a bit for the Wildcats. After the Li-
ons failed to convert on fourth down, Bake i
County took the ball at the Potter's House '
27-yard line. But Lucious Lee fumbled, g\I-
ing it back to the Lions.
Potter's House then capitalized for its only
score of the game. The Lions completed a
long bomb deep into Baker County territory and
capped off the drive with a short TD pass. The
Wildcats' lead was down to 26-6.
That was the end of the good news for Potter's
House, as the Wildcats went on to score 21 un-
answered points in the second half, largely with
backups and rarely-seen seniors.
The influx of new players resulted in a number

Coach Bobby Johns demonstrated that he is wise
beyond his years in setting up this season's sched-
ule. Though still young by coaching standards,
Johns showed some much needed wisdom and
guile -in scheduling an open date at the end of the
regular season.
He suspected the Wildcats might qualify for post-
season play, and rather than putting the open date in
the middle of the season like most teams, he put it at
the end, giving his players essentially two weeks to
heal and rest before marching in to the playoffs.
Here's a look at the playoff picture.
Going in to Friday night's game with Potter's
House, the playoff situation was murky at best. The
Cats knew that they were in the playoffs, but didn't
know whether they would go on the road as district
runners-up or host the opening round as the district
It all came down to the Friday afternoon game
between Raines and Jackson, the lone blemish on
the Wildcats' schedule. They had beaten Raines, so
were up on the Vikings in the head to head stand-
If Jackson won the matchup at "The Graveyard,"
the Raines stadium, it would have won the district.
If Raines won, BCHS won the district, Raines was
runners-up and Jackson was bounced from the play-

Both teams had everything to play for and every-
thing to lose. The Cats could just sit back and watch
and bite their fingernails.
Raines scored first and its defense looked very
good. Near the end of the half, their starting quar-
terback was injured. His reserve came in for the sec-
ond half and promptly scored another touchdown.
The game finished Raines 15, Jackson 0.
The Cats were district champions. Coach Johns
said Saturday that the Cats had three coaches, at the
Raines-Jackson game, all providing the staff back
in Baker County will constant updates. The players
were told as they boarded the bus to drive to Memo-
rial Stadium.
Meanwhile, down the road in Green Cove
Springs, the Clay County Blue Devils were pound-
ing Pedro Menendez 35-21 to clinch the runner-up
spot in District 4 3A. They will travel to Glen St.
Mary in two weeks to take on the Wildcats.
"We know that [the Blue Devils] are very ath-
letic," Coach Johns said. "Hard to tell how big they
are. They don't look huge. But we know they're
'very athletic, very well-coached.
"They're going to be physical. They're going to
play hard, play physical. They're a run-dominated
football team, which is good for us. They do throw
it around a little bit, but they're going to line up

of penalties; at one point in the third quarter the
Wildcats were flagged for holding on three con-
secutive plays.
"We have done a poor job on penalties all year
long," Coach Johns said. "And it's not that we
don't try to work on them. But for us to think. that
we're going to solve that problem in Week 11, go-
ing into the playoffs, that would be foolish on our

PHOTOS BY WWW.BAKERCOUNTYSPORTS.COM are why some folks in the area think that this
may be one of the best Wildcat teams we have
ever seen. The team has put on a show this
year, and many memories have been shared
from big plays to big wins, and even a dis-
appointing loss to a newly-found rival in the
form of the Jackson Tigers. The ball seems to
be bouncing the Wildcats' way this year.
It bounced the Cats' way this past Friday
when the Raines Vikings knocked off the
Jackson Tigers to secure the 3-3A District
Championship for Baker County. A Jackson
win would have meant the Wildcats were the
district runner-up and a trip to St. Augustine
tto play the feared Yellow Jackets. With the
-. Jackson loss, now the Cats are champions and
S" are playing at home in the first round. Life is
What will all of this mean for the Cats as
,, they enter the playoffs? Absolutely nothing
The playoffs' are a different animal. One loss
and you're out. Five winsyo id allnre the state
One thing we know for sure is that the
chances of the latter improved dramatically by
virtue of the Wildcats'having the opportunity
to play at home in the first round. Traveling to
St. Augustine would not have been anyone's
choice for this team. Two years removed from
a state championship of their own, the Yellow
Jackets are rolling again, and many believe
are the class of north Florida in 3A.
What will it take for the Cats to make a run?
Let me give you the three keys as I see it:
.* Big plays from Carlos Holton. There is
no doubt the Wildcat quarterback is a special
player. He makes them happen with his ath-
S leticism. In the playoffs, the Wildcats offense
S. will go as far as Carlos can take them.
Limit penalties. The coaches say this is
an area that has improved for the Cats. I say
_it's shaky at best. The Cats have been up and
.. down, I agree, but have truly shot themselves
'..:'".. .'" in the foot at inopportune times. Limit the
'- ."- .- penalties and they'll be okay.
Pass the ball. Coach Johns has indicated
that he would like to be more versatile with the passing attack. This is a must for the Cats to have a chance
at a deep playoff run. Right now the offense is racking up yardage and points, but there is too much of a
one-dimensional feel. The week off will help to work on this part of the offense.
Hold on Wildcat fans, this should be exciting!
This Week's Picks:
S/Florida @ South Carolina: The Gators stumbled against Georgia, but rebounded against Vandy. Spur-
rier's Gamecocks are reeling after three losses in a row. South Carolina is a tough place to play at night, but
the Gators will win 38-30.
-/Florida State @ Virginia Tech: Florida State has found its quarterback. Wait, which one is it? FSU is as
up-and-down as they come. Tech, on the other hand, is playing more consistently despite blowing the lead
to BC a couple of games back. This one should be entertaining. VT wins 33-16.
VAuburn @ Georgia: The Bulldogs are rolling and Auburn is having a nice year. This game has the mak-
ings of another SEC battle royal. The Dawgs will be looking to return to the SEC Championship with a little
help, but Auburn spoils the day 31-30.
,/Jaguars @ Titans: The Titan defense is swarming and the Jags are hurting. The Titans win 23-20.
If you have a take on sports, send it to me at mike@bakercountysports.com. See you all next week.

'OldJail' restoration nearly complete;

fourth staue of historic

By Chris McComisky

Renovation of the Baker
County Historical Society head-
quarters [old county jail] is
nearly complete, and a public
re-opening may take place later
this year, according to President
David Richardson.
"All of the work is essentially
finished," Mr. Richardson said.
"At this point, we just need to
move all of our documents and
materials back into the build-
ing. This is not an easy process,
though, so the re-opening may
have to be pushed back to early
The Historical Society build-
ing on McIver St. in Macclenny
is currently in its fourth phase
of renovation, the first of which
started in 1993. The primary
goals of the present phase have
been to repair the building's
structure and update the electri-
cal system. These were made a
top priority in order to preserve
this important county landmark
so visitors and researchers alike
may continue to benefit from its
literary and historical resources.
Financial support for the res-
toration comes from both fund
raisers and from government
grants. According to Mr. Rich-
ardson, the most recent grant
for which the Historical Society
applied totaled about $360,000.
The Society itself is a non-profit
organization with a core staff
chiefly composed of volunteer
"We typically have around 10
to 12 active volunteers who do
about 90 percent of the work,"
Mr. Richardson said. "We take
them when they come. We also
occasionally have state or county
inmates who come in to perform
demolition when it is required."
And considering the previ-
ous function of the Historical
Society's present site, it really
is not a unique circumstance to
see prisoners toiling within its
walls. About ,four years after
its founding.in, 1978, Itho.SOcIr.
ety was moved into the former
Baker County jail. Prior to this,
local historical records were kept
in the county courthouse, but an
increasing amount of water dam-
age and mold brought about the
forced relocation.

The Old Jail was built in
1910, and a supplementary cell
block was added in 1938. With
this new accommodation, sher-
iffs and their families lived in the
downstairs area where the origi-
nal jail had been and even occa-
sionally cooked for the inmates,
who were housed directly above
them. In addition, the jail features
a trap door that was intended as a
gallows [back in those days, ex-
ecutions were the responsibility
of county sheriffs], an attraction
that has been available for public
view in the Historical Society for
the past 20 years.
Overall,' the Baker County
Historical Society aims to give
people a view of this area from
the past to the present so that
they can understand and appre-
ciate where the county has been
and where it will go in the future,
the director said.
The genealogical and histori-
cal library offers local residents
a wide variety of books and
documents to peruse, several of
which contain unpublished re-
cords on Baker County. Visitors
can chronicle their family's pedi-
gree or descent, access census
information, research Florida',
history and retrieve personal date
