County's second fatal accident in as many weeks


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
A 16-year-old Glen St. Mary boy died in
a head-on collision on US 90, becoming the
fifth traffic fatality in Baker County this
year.
The death comes-only a week after two
1-10 wrecks claimed two other young driv-


ers, one 16 and the other 25 years old. One
of the accidents was in Columbia County
and killed a Sanderson man; the other was
in west Baker County and took the life of a
Tallahassee woman.
Arjun D. Good, a student at Stanton
College Prep in Jacksonville, was heading
west on US 90 about 6:22 am on March 24
when his 1998 Ford two-door crossed into


the eastbound lanes and struck the 2005
Pontiac driven by Glen St. Mary resident
Melody Flores.
Both vehicles ended up on the north
shoulder of US 90.
Ms. Flores, 46, was flown to Shands
Hospital with serious injures along with

Jail groundbreak


kicks offdialogue


on rest of acreage
BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
About an hour before the first cement was poured at the
new jail construction site in north Macclenny on March
19, the Baker Correctional Development Corporation's
board of directors gathered to solidify some budgetary
changes and discuss the future of its 90-plus acre site, of
which only 20 acres is reserved for the jail and sheriff's
office complex.
"What can we do in the long term to use this land and
what do we want to do with the excess land?" asked board
member Larry Payne. "Let's plan this out for what's in
the best interest of the corporation, the county and the
community."
Baker County has first option on the leftover property
because it provided the $200,000 loan to cover BCDC's
start-up costs. BCDC has agreed to pay back the cash by
giving the county some of the excess acreage.
But where that land is and how much each acre is
worth is still undetermined, said project manager Danny
Thomas during the board's monthly meeting that after-
noon.
What's for sure is the site includes about 30 acres of
wetlands unsuitable for building, and the county has ex-
pressed the need for new offices to relieve crowding at
the courthouse.
Last month county commissioners gave the go-ahead
for obtaining construction estimates on a 9800-square-
foot building the county had designed as part of a plan to
move some courthouse operations to the existing county
offices next door and possibly build new county offices
and parking on the jail site.
"There's plenty of room," board member and county
commissioner Alex Robinson said of the space available
for the county's needs.
The board agreed to release a request for proposals
from land planners to assist the corporation in divvying
up the 40 or so leftover acres between the county and
other interested buyers.
"We don't want to cut ourselves short," said Mr.
Thomas.

Landscaping, paving disrupt exits


There will be a flurry of activity on and
around the Interstate 10 interchanges at both SR
121 and SR 228 at Macclenny the next couple
of weeks.
The Department of Transportation says tem-
porary detours will be established during the
night for re-paving exit and entry ramps all
part of the ongoing re-surfacing of the interstate
from US 90 west at Sanderson east to the Duval
County line.
The ramp closures will last six-eight hours
starting at about 9:00 pm on these dates [weath-
er permitting]:


*March 26 closing eastbound at 228
ramps
* March 27 closing westbound at 228
ramps
* March 30 closing westbound at 121
ramps
* April 1 closing eastbound at 121
ramps DOT will set up message
boards on 1-10 advising motorists


Both interchanges will be re-landscaped start-
ing next week with more than 1500 trees. That
project is not expected to impact traffic.
Contractor AE Engineering of Jacksonville
expects to plant live oaks, magnolias, dogwoods
and crape myrtles. More cabbage and sabal
. palms along with more than 1500 silver saw pal-
mettos will enhance the palms already in place
at the two quadrants of the SR 121 exchange.
The landscape plan was designed by Buford
Davis Associates of Gainesville.

New road base


causing harm to


vehicle finishes?

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Sometimes the solution can be worse,than the
problem. /
That's how Duane Bristow feels about the county's
resurfacing of Claude Harvey Rd.
"It's ruining vehicles," the Cedar Creek Farms
resident told county commissioners during a March
17 meeting. Mr. Bristow said that white residue from
the road surface has stained his new truck and won't
come off.
He said it's mostly a problem when the road gets
wet and the residue is splashed up higher onto the
body of his new Chevy Silverado. Under dry con-
ditions the material tends to stay low and build up
around the wheels and tires. "When it's dry, it looks
real well," Mr. Bristow said about the road surface,
which is a relatively new material called EZ-Base.
The county used EZ-Base to stabilize Claude Har-
vey Road's dirt surface.
RM The light
gray material is
made by Jack-

from recycled'
ash. The public
utility markets
EZ-Base as an
alternative to
limerock, a con-
ventional road
base often cov-
ered with as-
phalt for tradi-
tional roadways.
At one-fourth
the price of
lime rock, EZ-
Base makes for
a cheaper road,
and even more


so if used by itself without asphalt.
That's what the county did on Claude Harvey
Road.
Road department head Robert Fletcher said JEA
suggested adding a second layer of the material after
the county experienced problems with the first appli-
cation of EZ-Base. Then weekly rain kept the surface
from completely hardening.
"The rain caught us," explained Mr. Fletcher.
"When the rain got in, it never got a chance to cure
all the way through."
Given a.week without rain, the EZ-Base, which
is about 30 percent water, should function fine, Mr.
Fletcher said.
In fact, the county has used EZ-Base on six other
roads with no problems, save the occasional pothole.
And only one of those six, Deerwood Road, has been
accompanied by any form of paving. EZ-Base was
used on Deerwood Road with a layer of gravel-like
material called chip seal over it.,
Nonetheless, when Mr. Bristow expressed his con-
cerns to commissioners, they requested estimates for
adding asphalt or another cap to help the road condi-
tions. Estimates are being sought for asphalt and two
cheaper alternatives, the chip seal and another mate-
rial referred to as a coal mix.
"It seems to be doing well," Commissioner Mark
Hartley said of Deerwood Road. "It's more like pave-
ment than anything else I've seen."
While not perfect, he said the chip seal material
would be a quick fix until Claude Harvey Rd. is paved
by conventional means.
Commissioner Mike Griffis said that could happen
if.developers of the Cedar Creek project are required
to pave Claude Harvey Road. However, Mr. Griffis
called that proposition "a big if" because the street is
not classified as a regional road.
Commissioner Julie Combs has also received calls
about the problems on Claude Harvey from other
Cedar Creek Farms residents. "I think the time has
come," she said about the need for additional work.
"We can't put it off any longer."

Kneeball, sack and relay races were just some of the fun activ-
ities awaiting students when they hit the field to participate in
the annual Pre-K/Kindergarten Spring Fling. This year'sfling
was combined with field day, another annual event. Principal
Sherrie Raulerson had as much or more fun than the little
ones as she played "conductor" and drove a train around the
middle school track where the festivities were held. Other at-
tractions included a "Seaworld" inflatable playhouse with
sliding board, games like tug-of-war and 'duck, duck, goose'
and fruit-flavored snow cones. Armed with cameras, parents
were out infull force to see their little ones celebrating a won-
derful, warm spring day. (Above) An aggressive tug-of-war on

MYSIDEOF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
I guess in some parts of the
known world failure is not re-
warded. If you aren't successful
there are consequences.
What's causing me to explore
this line of thought was Billy
Donovan's reaction to the Flor-
ida Gators being bounced out
of the SEC championship in the
opening round game against the
Alabama Crimson Tide.
A late season slide and the
loss to the Tide meant the Gators
didn't make the Big Dance, the
NCAA tournament, which they
had won the previous two years
with a team full of upperclass-
man.
Instead, the freshman-heavy
Baby Gators had to settle for the
NIT.
Following the Gators' loss to
the Tide, Donovan expressed his
displeasure with his team in a
very graphic way.
He locked them out of the
gym and let them know that they
had better not be seen around
campus wearing any orange and
blue Gator regalia. In Donovan's
eyes they had choked; they had
let down the team, fans, and uni-
versity.
A little harsh? Maybe.
It got the message across. In
the first round of the NIT, the Ga-
tors dispatched San Diego State
73-49 and looked like the early
..season Gators that won 10 in a
*row. In the second round, Florida
- gaeCreighfbi University the
same treatment, handing them
82-54 defeat.
That sets up a quarterfinal
matchup with top seeded Arizo-
na State. How much Donovan's
methods had to do with the suc-
cess of the team in the NIT is
hard to say, but he defends his
tough love.
Like Kevin Costner says to his
coach Trey Wilson in the movie
Bull Durham after the minor
league Durham Bulls had a hor-
rible start to the season, "They're
kids, scare 'em." He does and
they go on a win streak. Dono-
van took a page out of Costner's
script and it seems to have work.
Probably my favorite exam-
ple of tough love is attributed
to Bill 'Gates. He used it in a
speech to high school graduates,
and though its widely attributed
to him, it actually came from a
book called DumbingDown Our
Kids by teacher Charles Sykes.
Gates and Sykes pointed out
in 11 Rules You Didn't Learn in
High School that the world is
oftentimes a tough and uncaring
place and very little is going to
be handed to us just because we
happen to be living and breath-
ing. In the real world respect and
success has to be earned.
RULE 1: Life is not fair get.
used to it.
RULE 2: The world won't
care about your self-esteem. The
world will expect you to accom-
plish something before you feel,
good about yourself.
RULE 3: You will not make
$40,000 a year right out of high
school. You won't be a vice pres-
ident with a car phone, until you
earn both.


RULE 4: If you think your
teacher is tough, wait till you get
a boss. He doesn't have tenure.
RULE 5: Flipping burgers is
not beneath your dignity. Your
grandparents had a different
word for burger flipping; they
called it opportunity.
RULE 6: If you mess up, it's
not your parents' fault, so don't
whine about your mistakes, leam
from them.
RULE 7: Before you were
born, your parents weren't as
boring as they are now. They got
that way from paying your bills,
cleaning your clothes and lis-
tening to you talk about how
cool you are. So before you save
the rain forest from the parasites
of your parent's generation, try
delousing the closet in your own
room.

across the bridge and took the

We looked for treasures in an-

leries. I missed her like crazy
when she went back home.
Turning 50 also seemed the
right time to go to the doctor
for a thorough physical, just to
make sure everything was in
good working order. I decided to
get a bone density test, which I
understood was a good idea for
anyone my age.
Bad news: The tell-tale dark
purple areas that glared out at

That explains the weird pain I've
had for a long time.
Good News: It doesn't seem
to be anywhere else.
Better News: Preventive mea-
sures such as estrogen replace-
ment and aggressive vitamin
therapy can help repair and slow
the process.
Still, it wasn't what I had in
mind at middle age. I thought
that was something that hap-
pened further down the road of
life and I didn't think it would
happen to me. If any of the other
women in my family have it, I
was not aware of it.

We've gotten out of the habit
of drinking milk, which has al-
ways been a good source of cal-
cium and we don't eat the green
vegetables like kale which pack
a healthy wallop of this vital
substance. We may drink milk
as children but the habit falls off
in the teenage years. Few, if any,
adults drink milk regularly. The
recommendation is three serv-
ings of dairy daily throughout
one's lifetime to build and main-
tain strong bones.
I'm guilty of not drinking
milk myself, but that is going to
change, big-time.
I visited Darryl Register's
farm out on Smokey Road last
year and saw a working dairy
in operation. The care taken of
his cows is impressive. I didn't
realize that well-fed, well-cared
for cows could be so happy and
content. They eat a carefully bal-
anced diet loaded with vitamins
and minerals. After feeding, the
black and white Holsteins lay
resting in the field nearby, re-
laxed and carefree.
"That's what a dairy farmer
likes to see," Mr. Register told
me as he gestured to the peaceful
herd. "This is the time when they
are making their best milk."
Last weekend I bought a half-
gallon of 1% milk and it was
gone before I knew it. Honestly,
I had forgotten how good the
stuff is, so there won't be any
reluctance on my part toward
drinking it. And what a simple
and agreeable way to "medicate"
yourself.

The BCDC paid about $3 mil-
lion for the site, which amounts
to roughly $3300 an acre.
A workshop is also planned
with the commission to discuss
its needs from the property. It's
possible the county may want to
purchase more land or trade acre-
age for the estimated hundreds
of thousands of dollars in impact
fees for the facility.
"We can't sell land to other
people without knowing where
the county land is," said Mr.
Payne.
Mr. Thomas also gave a brief
update on the project, saying con-
struction was ahead of schedule
and such lead time would come
in handy for bad weather.
"Ajax [the contractor] is doing
an admirable job, even working
on weekends and at night," he
said, adding that footers should
be poured within three weeks.
"They have a lot to do, but they're
on it. It's going to rain sometime
so they want to be ahead."
Bill Rutherford of Tallahas-
see's CRA Architects, which de-
signed the project, said the jail's
design allows for future expan-
sion within the 20-acre sheriff's
office complex.
And in his opinion due to
discussions with federal officials
- that expansion will be need-
ed.
Mr. Rutherford said Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) would likely ask for the
BCDC to double its capacity af-
ter one year of successful opera-
tion.
Construction.of the $32 mil-
lion facility will be paid for by


proceeds of housing federal pris-
oners from ICE and the US Mar-
shals Service.
"It's a unique thing to bring in
federal dollars to pay off bonds
and add more revenue for other
things," said Mr. Payne.
In other business, the board
agreed to make some budgetary
and payroll changes.
Mr. Thomas, who has worked
thus far as a consultant to BCDC,
will become an employee of the
sheriff's department along with
the new Facilities Director Tim
Nunn. Both men will have of-
fices at the construction site.
"Most of this is setting up an
office out there," said Sheriff
Joey Dobson of the $35,000 op-
erational budget change, which
includes travel expenses, insur-
ance, office supplies and the


like.
After the meeting, board
members, Mr. Thomas and the
architects headed to the construc-
tion site to meet with county of-
ficials and members of the Ajax
Construction team for an official
cement pouring ceremony.
"There are so many people
that put in so many hours on
this project, it's unbelievable,"
said commission chairman Gor-
don Crews. "I'm overwhelmed
by being a part of using Baker
County tax dollars in such an in-
novative way."
Jay Smith, vice president for
Ajax, also spoke about the proj-
ect's impact on the local econo-
my. "This is going to be a shot in
the arm for this area," he said.
The next BCDC meeting is
April 16.

Mother is arrested for neglect

after home is found unlivable
The sheriff's department arrested a 36-year-old mother and charged
her with child neglect after police and a case worker from the Depart-
ment of Children and Families determined her residence off Main St.
in Olustee unfit for habitation by her three children.
A church pastor who lives nearby contacted authorities on March
21 because one of the children, an 8-year-old girl, was wandering un-
supervised in the neighborhood. The pastor told Deputy Mike Hauge
several church members reported unsafe conditions at the residence
after they visited it.
The officer was awaiting the case worker's arrival that evening
when the mother, returned with another daughter, age 3. The mother
"openly admitted that her residence was in poor condition and not suit-
able to be lived in," Deputy Hauge's report notes.
A subsequent inspection turned up several dogs living inside the
residence with feces and urine atop clothing and on the floor, There
was very little food and several accumulations of food that had sat for
some time. Milk in the refrigerator had a January expiration date.
DCF case worker Linda Kujala took custody of the two girls, and
was to locate a 13-year-old son believed to be living with friends in
Macclenny.
Child neglect is a third-degree felony.

check card had been used for
three purchases at Wal-Mart in
Macclenny totaling $1255 and
for a $371 purchase in Ormond
Beach, Fla.
A Jacksonville man reported
his Yamaha Bruin ATV, valued
at $5500, stolen from his Glen
St. Mary property on Bill Davis
Road around March 19.
Robert Bradshaw lives in
Jacksonville during the week
and owns the Glen residence.
Mr. Bradshaw's daughter dis-
covered the missing ATV while
caring for animals at the home.
The man told deputy Patrick
McGauley that he suspected a
recently fired employee, Shelton
Mason, in the theft because he
was the only person other than
the daughter that knew where
the ATV's keys were located.
However, Mr. Bradshaw said
Mr. Mason did occasionally have
acquaintances on the property
while he worked in the past.
SDeputy McGauley located
Mr. Mason,'-Whodewied any ini
volvement with the theft. HowL
ever, Mr. Mason told the deputy
about two others, Andy Mann
and Adam Mann, who knew the
keys' whereabouts. They denied
involvement as well.
The deputy said all individu-
als contacted agreed to voice-
stress testing in the near future.
David Hall of MLK Drive
noticed his daughter's bike was
missing after returning home
following a four-hour absence
March 23. The Schwinn bike is
valued at'$85.
David Evans of CR 229
woke up the same day to find a
camera he borrowed from fam-
ily was missing. He told deputy
Gavin Sweat that Jerry Wilk-
erson came to the house to ask
for a ride the night before and
ended up staying the night. In
the morning, Mr. Wilkerson was
gone and so was the camera. At-
tempts to contact Mr. Wilkerson
were unsuccessful but will con-
tinue.

on March 23. Deputy Michael
Hauge ticketed the driver, Clay-
ton Scott, 27, of Macclenny, for
driving on a license that had
been suspended four times, and
for the improper tag. The officer
noted in his report he issued the
tickets instead of arresting Mr.
Scott because he cooperated in.


the investigation.
Deputy Hauge said he chased
Mr. Smith a short distance before
apprehending him and threaten-
ing him with a taser gun that
morning. Initially, the suspect
gave the deputy the false name
of Christopher Cameron, and

structing police.

up wanted on a warrant from the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office for
domestic violence.

he saw a black male run from
the vehicle before Ms. Homitz
drove away on Ninth St., an area
known for drug activity.
A computer check determined.
the suspect's license had been
suspended seven times.
Jermaine White, 27, of
Union City, Ga. was arrested the
afternoon of March 22 for a six-
time suspended license violation.
Deputy Garrett Bennett clocked
him going 96 mph in a 70 zone
on Interstate 10 near Sanderson

New drivers encouraged to buckle up


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Local teen drivers got a reminder to buckle their seat belts when
operating a vehicle on St. Patrick's Day green beads promoting
seat belt usage and safe driving habits.
The project was organized by the Baker County Middle School
Students Against Drunk Drivers Club, which is headed by Officer
Tracy Benton.
The event was sponsored across the state by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation Community Traffic Safety Team. FDOT pro-
vided the bright green bead necklaces which featured a green sham-
rock imprinted with the slogan "Don't trust your luck buckle up!"
The message couldn't be more timely.
The event was held the weekend after a Sanderson man, age 20,
and a week before a Glen St. Mary youth, age 16, died in vehicle
accidents. Neither was wearing a seat belt, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Starting at the middle school, SADD passed out the necklaces to
help instill the message before teens start driving.
"The kids wore them proudly," stated Deputy Benton.
Volunteers from the sheriff's office and Baker County High School
students were present to check up on drivers as they left the parking
lot behind the high school.
If students were wearing their seat belts they were congratulated
and given a set of beads. If not, they were given a chance to buckle
up.
There are many reasons to urge teens to buckle up. Studies show
teens are easily distracted while driving. They have the highest fatal-,
ity rate during motor vehicle crashes. They tend to engage in high risk
behavior such as speeding, talking on cell phones and driving after
using alcohol or drugs. Teens also have the lowest seat belt usage of
any group.
The main message SADD tries to pass on to teens and all drivers is
wearing seat belts can help save your money and life. The simple act
of buckling up can keep you out of the hospital and help avoid getting
a ticket. Wearing seat belts is not an option, it's the law.
Sergeant Gerald Rhoden, one of the officers handing out the beads,
reminded students about another law no transporting people in the
back of their trucks.
He stopped several violators leaving the school grounds before
they got on the open road and got in trouble.
"OK folks," he told them, gesturing to passengers in the open bed
of the truck. "You can't be doing that. Let's make it right."
According to the Florida Department of Transportation, someone
is injured in a traffic crash every 15 seconds and someone is killed

beads from Sergeant Gerald Rhoden.

every 13 minutes nationwide.
Using seat belts help save 11,000 lives each year and help drivers
maintain control of their cars if involved in an accident. Seat belts
help decrease the chance of injury by keeping a driver's body firmly
in place.
Air bags are designed to be used with seat belts and are only 12%
effective in saving lives if used alone.


County black caucus 1st organizational meeting..
An organizational meeting of the Baker County Black Democratic Caucus was held March 18 at the home of Anita Gerson. The
dinner meeting was hosted by Andy Bales, president of the Baker County Democratic Party. The group is forming strategies to
encourage people in the community to register to vote, and plans to target and assist citizens who may feel their vote does not
count. "We want all people to feel empowered by their right to vote, regardless of political affiliation," said Liz Jenkins, president
of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida, who spoke at the meeting. Front row from left: Ms. Jenkins, Marva Williams, Anita

Ronald McDonald


pitches reading at



day care March 17 i


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Students and teachers at Spe
cial Blessings Day care were
treated to a special visit by Ronl
aid McDonald on March 17,
Ronald the clown is (raveling
throughout counties in Florida
to promote the McDonald's lit-
eracy program "Reading Rang-
ers." The event was coordinated
through the efforts of Cathie Sh-
emp, director of Episcopal Chil-
dren's Services.
Ronald, in his signature yel-
low suit, oversized shoes, bright
red hairdo and perpetual smile,
read books aloud to the kids and
entertained with a variety of ac-
tivities including magic tricks
and cooperative drawing.
Delighted children, many
dressed in green T-shirts to cel-
ebrate St. Patrick's Day, could
hardly contain their excitement
in the presence of the fast food
celebrity.
"OK, We're listening now,"
said the enthusiastic clown, cup-
ping his ear. "Let's sit criss-cross
applesauce."
The boys and girls promptly
sat up straight and crossed their
legs underneath them, trying to
sit still on the floor of First As-
sembly Church where the pro-
gram was conducted.
Ronald read a book entitled If
The Dinosaurs Came Back, ask-
ing the children many times for
their input on how things would
be in the world if suddenly it was
again populated with huge rep-
tiles.
He also read the ever popular
Ten Little Monkeys, a story with
rhyming verses that count back-
ward from ten to one in which
the children participated, some-
times at a deafening crescendo:


Ten little mon-
keys
Jumping on the
bed
One fell off and
bumped his
head!
Momma called
the doctor
And the doctor
said
No more mon-
keys
Jumping on the
bed!
He asked them
at one point to
shout as loud as
possible, then
speak as quietly as
possible. The whis-
pered verse was to
illustrate how they
should speak when
in the library and
being respectful
of others trying to
read.
A cooperative
drawing was pro- :
duced on a "mag-
ic" drawing board. "
One by one, differ-. i
ent children were
asked to come up
and add a feature
to a circle, creat-
ing a face. When it Ri
was complete, the
mouth suddenly
started moving. Ronald spoke
to the face on the drawing board
and it spoke back. The kids
screamed in amazement. Ron-
ald, it seems, is also a talented
ventriloquist!
When the program conclud-
ed, each child received coloring
books and a personalized print-
ed certificate of participation.

program he wears a "stepom-

of steps he walks.

children, Ronald has taken

Vantage e

By Bob Gerard
Press Movie Reviewer
Vantage Point is a lot like the
cliche about Chinese food.
You can eat your fill of this
movie and love every bite, but it
is, only when you leave the the-
ater and start thinking about it
that you discover that you want
more.
Vantage Point is a thrill ride
that at the end leaves you won-
dering where the two hours went
that you sat in the theater. It will
have you on the edge of your seat
from almost the opening frames
until the closing credits.
It's in those credits that you
start examining what you've just
seen and wondering why a lot
of it didn't make a whole lot of
sense. While you're in it, though,
just sit back and enjoy the mov-
ie.
The idea is an intriguing one,
even while the premise is chill-
ing. The president of the United
States is attending a summit
in Spain and is shot during, his
speech. The moments leading
up to the shooting and after it
are then examined over and over
from the point of view of the par-
ticipants.
This isn't ground breaking
filmmaking. Akira Kurosawa did
it best in the classic, Rashoman.
But Travis handles it well and
holds on to it, letting out clues as
he goes.
We get the events through
the eye of a television camera,
through the eye of a two Secret
Service agents, a couple of ter-
rorists, a Spanish policeman, the
.president and a spectator who
finds himself in the middle of


exciting but

the action. Each time we see the
events replayed we get another
piece of the puzzle.
Things are not as they seem.
Let's just say that.
There are some recognizable
faces in the cast. Oscar winners
Forrest Whitaker and William
Hurt are the spectator and the
president. Dennis Quaid and
Matthew Fox (Lost) are the Se-
cret Service agents and Sigour-
ney Weaver is the news director.
After the first couple of re-
plays, I thought the technique
might get old, but it never did. I
never really found myself wish-
ing that they would just tell the
story.
Director Pete Travis, in his
first major film debut, does just
that in the final third of the mov-
ie. It's a roller coaster ride of
explosions, car chases and plot
twists and turns.
I admit, some of the plot
twists caught me completely by
surprise, while others I came to
expect from the clues gathered in
the flashbacks.
The acting was good, though
some of it was a little cliche. For-
rest Whitaker was workman-like
but wasted. Quaid, the focus of
the film as a Secret Service agent
returning to the job after taking
a bullet protecting the president,
is his usual troubled self. He
seems to have graduated from a
grinning comic sex symbol to a
brooding middle aged actor fol-
lowing the path blazed by Clint
Eastwood. In fact, his role looks
very similar to the one Eastwood
played for In the Line of Fire.
Weaver is wasted, as is Hurt.
Action and plot drive this movie.


Fox shows he can handle his first
major feature film role, but it's
Eduardo Noreiga as the love-sick
Spanish police detective who
steals every one of his scenes.
It's the "why" of this movie
that makes you want to scream.
There are so many unanswered
questions that just a few more
lines of dialogue could have
cleaned up.
I can't tell you all of them,
without ruining the story, but
they will become clear. Why are
the terrorists doing this? Who
are they and what is their grudge
against the president? And fi-
nally, what did they do to lure in
some of the willing participants?
This is a very entertaining
movie and I recommend it for
someone wanting an action mov-
ie fix. It has problems, but you
won't be worrying about them
when the movie's on the screen.
Vantage Point is rated PG-13
for some language and lots of
violence. I give it three of four
stars.

Thanks so much
The family of Wesley Ben-
nett would like to thank ev-
eryone from the bottom of our
hearts who helped us mourn the
loss of our son, brother and hus-
band. There are no words to tru-
ly express how our hearts feel.
We have so many to thank and
hope not to leave anyone out.
We would like to send a spe-
cial thanks to Brother Jim Cox
for the beautiful service and for
being there with us the morning
we received the tragic news to
hug us, dry our tears and give us
God's word; Todd Ferreira Fu-
neral Home for the beautiful job
they did with the large crowd,
the service and the compassion
they showed; Sheriff Joey Dob-
son and the sheriff's dept. for
the many items they brought,
and the Baker County fire dept.
for the assistance the morning of
the fire. Thank you to everyone
who sent their love, the phone
calls we received, the prayers
that went up for our family,
the beautiful flowers, the food,
the hugs people came to give,
donations people gave, Taylor
Church, our feed store families.
Thank you to everyone for the
compassion we were offered by
all.
Our family has lost a son, hus-
band, brother, daddy and most of
all, our friend. Those who knew
Wesley knew he loved a crowd
and people came to show their
respect for him in massive num-
bers. We may never be able to
personally look each and every
one of you in the eye who had
a hand in everything that was
done for us, but I promise you
that every dish of food that was
brought, every flower that was
sent, every phone call that was
made, every card we received,
to every person who shed tears
with us, we love you and thank
you from the bottom of our
hearts. Friends are what Baker
County is made of and Wesley
is in Heaven right now smiling
down at all of the people who
truly loved him.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL,

No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye; you
were gone before I knew it and
only God knows why.
So I'll not ask that question,
just trust Him and obey, then
when at last He calls me home,
He'll wipe these tears away.
You lived beneath my heart for
nine months, you'll liveforever
in it. Rest well, my beautiful
baby.
LOVE,
MOM

Sincere thanks

The family of Ella Jean Din-
kins would like to sincerely
thank everyone for their gener-
ous support during this time.
Whether you sent a card, called,
visited or were just with us in
prayer, we appreciate them all.
We especially want to thank Bill
Guerry funeral home and our
church families at the Macclen-
ny Church of God, Raiford Road
Church and Mt. Zion Church
along with Pastor Shannon Con-
ner and Pastor Bobby Griffin for
their compassionate words.

As the raindrops fell from the
misty sky, and the tear drops
fell from our swollen eyes, we
knew our hearts were not sup-
posed to grieve, for God called
you home, your pain for Him
to relieve. But, for those of us
you left behind, comforting
words are hard to find. As you
are sitting there on Heaven's
stair, know that everyday we
will send a prayer to thank you
for all the things that you have
done, for all the laughter and
all the fun. We miss you.
You would be so proud ofS.L.
and Amanda. They are doing
so well in school and are so
smart. Amanda still cannot wait
to play on your feet again, and
S.L. looks like your twin.

My dearest mom, my friend,
it's been a year since God
called you home.
He took your hand and He said
come with me, my precious
child. No more pain, no more
tears. You looked back to say
I must go now, don't be sad
for that I am free. For I have
earned my angel wings, and for
that I am very grateful to have
had a mother like you. I'll miss
you today-yesterday and tomor-
row. But F knowtWhen it's trime,
God will also take my hand to
meet you again at Heaven's
Gates. Until then I'll keep you
in my heart.

Lady Wildcats crush district


opponents by 19-run margin


The Lady Wildcat softball
team is on a roll, winning four
straight and gaining momentum
going into the final half of the
season. This past week the girls
notched wins against district
foes Middleburg and Ridgeview
in which they outscored their op-
ponents 23-4.
The girls opened with an 11-1
thrashing of Middleburg at home
on March 18. Ashley Curry's
grand slam home run in the third
inning was the game's highlight.
The Cats opened with a four-run
first inning and then proceeded
to score in every inning except
the fourth.
The Wildcats opened the scor-
ing in a big way with a two-run
Bridget Williams homer and a
double by Kristen Smith. The big
bats brought in Ashley Holton
and Tiffany Smith.
Ashley Curry tripled in the


second and Jessi Nunn brought
her in for the only score in the
second. Meanwhile, Tiffany
Smith was dominating on the
mound, holding the Broncos
scoreless.
The Cats exploded for five
runs in 'the third inning behind
Curry's towering grand slam.
They got a run from Tiffany
Smith and then loaded the bases
for Curry.
The Cats' only other score
came in the fifth from Caitlin
Griffis.
Smith shared the pitching
chores with Cami Craig. She al-
lowed four hits and struck out
four in three innings, and Craig
allowed just one hit in her two
innings on the mound.
The Cats followed up a big
Tuesday game with an equally
impressive run Thursday at home
in a 12-3 romp over Ridgeview


for another big district win.
The girls jumped out to a 4-
1 lead and never trailed. Curry,
Nunn, Holton and Smith all
scored.
The Cats got two more in the
second behind Nunn and Holton.
They got a single run in the
fourth when Curry doubled and
was brought home by an RBI
single from Kristen Smith.
The Lady Wildcats finished
the game like they started with
hot bats. They pounded out five
runs in the sixth inning to seal
the win. Curry, Nunn, Holton,
Smith and Williams all scored
for BCHS.
The Lady Cats have no games
over spring break, and are on the
road at Eastside on April 1. They
will take part in the Bell Tourna-
ment that weekend and won't re-
turn home until April 8.


Wildcat bats

deliver win

in Hilliard
There wasn't a lot of action on
the diamond this past week for
the Wildcat baseball team. But
what there was certainly kept the
fans entertained.
The Cats have found their of-
fense in a big way. Their last four
wins have been by the "slaughter
rule," and last Thursday's match-
up with Hilliard was no excep-
tion. The Cats took the Flashes
to school in a 13-2 pasting on the
road.
T-:he Wildcats collected 15 hits
that night.
Travis Tyson had the hot bat
for the Wildcats, collecting four
hits as the Flashes didn't have an
answer to his bat.
Chase Bennett also plagued
the Hilliard pitcher with three
hits for the Wildcats.
The Wildcats will take to
the road this week with games
against the Jackson Tigers in
Jacksonville and the Suwannee
Bulldogs in Live Oak.

in March.

I love the NCAA tournament.
March Madness is what college
football should .be. It's a roller
coaster ride where little teams
like Davidson
get to shock the FA
big boys and
where power-
houses like Kan- Bob
sas get to show
why they are so
highly regarded.
It took a day or so for the up-
sets to start rolling in, but when
it happened it happened in a big
way. All teams that were expect-
ed to win did, though there were
some nail-biters like Duke's one-
point victory over Belmont.
But then the games started in
earnest and big teams started to
fall by the wayside. Kansas State
shocked USC and San Diego left
Connecticut with heads hanging.
But it was the second round
where things really started to
shake up. West Virginia handed
Duke a plane ticket back to Dur-
ham.
The shocker of the tourna-
ment was the Davidson Wild-
cats' overtime defeat of George-
town. A lot of people, myself
included, thought that the Hoyas
would make it all the way to the
final four. Not so, said the lowly
Wildcats. We, too, can play with
the big boys..
Davidson is riding a 24-game
win streak and needed some
of that lightning to set off the
Hoyas. But they never lost confi-
dence and advanced to the Sweet
16.
Many of the big-time schools
were tested but made it through.
UCLA was pushed hard by Tex-
as A&M. Texas had a rough time
with Miami.
Kansas was untroubled by
UNLV and UNC, and handled
Arkansas with aplomb. They
look the class of the tournament,
but you never know. UNC could
be tested by Washington State,
though Kansas should have an
easier time against Villanova.

Gt


So, who will make it through
to the Elite Eight? I haven't ex-
actly proved a pundit so far, but
then I'm not alone.
I think both
A Y UNC and Kan-
A sas flourish.
Memphis and
erard UCLA will


survive against
Michigan State,
and Western Kentucky, but will
-be tested.,. i,
Xavier beats West Virginia
and Louisville upsets Tennessee.
The two games to watch are Da-
vidson vs. Wisconsin and Stan-
ford vs. Texas.
I left my Magic 8 Ball at
home, but I'm predicting David-
son by five over Wisconsin, and
Texas in overtime against the
Cardinals.
In other sports news, Tiger
Woods proved that he was mor-
tal. Though he staged a furious
comeback in the Doral Open,
the mighty Tiger lost his first
tournament of the year after five
straight titles.

FWC sponsors free fishing weekend
and special licence offer
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission has designated the week-
end of April 5-6 as Free Fishing Weekend.
Residents and non-residents can fish public
fresh waters statewide without a licence.
All other fishing rules apply.
The FWC is also offering a special five-
year freshwater licence bonus program be-
ginning April 1st. This program provides an
extra incentive in the form of free tackle,
publications and fishing accessories. Five
year licenses cost $79.
The first 3000 sportsmen to upgrade to
a five-year freshwater fishing license after
April 1 will not only save from $6 to $20
in fees, but also receive a bonus package
by mail with samples, magazines and cou-
pons from fishing related companies. Items
offered include free hooks, lures, a coupon
for sunglasses, a de-hooker, a lure retriever
coupon and more.
Several publications including Florida
Wildlife magazine will provide 'information.
about safe, fun and successful fishing. Oth-
er package inserts include a Polk County
lakes map and coupon book.
Fishing license fees are a major source
of funding for conservation programs. Since
a resident freshwater fishing license costs
just $17 for an entire year, it is already an
outstanding value.
Five-year licenses are available online
at myfwc.com/license and via the toll free
phone number 1-888-347-4356. In addi-
tion they may be purchased at any licensed
agent or the county tax collectors' office.
If your current license has not expired
you can order a five year license now and
have the effective date for the license set
for 60 days after purchase. To verify that
the offer is still in effect and that you will
be one of the first 3000 visit myfwc.com/
fishing/5yr2008.html where you can also
see all the contents.


Randall Dippman of Cuyler is more than just a man who makes
fishing lures. He is an artist and a perfectionist with the attitude
and patience of a turkey hunter. Time Out(doors) visited him re-
cently to see what goes into a lure that takes two weeks to go
from raw material to finished package.
Randall was born and raised in Wausau in north-central Wis-
consin where he fished the abundant lakes and rivers for musky,
pike, bass, trout and panfish. He is a marine carpenter and has
built or worked on everything from small boats to multi-million
dollar yachts and big ships. He moved to Jacksonville 14 years
ago. He and his wife Wanda, a Jacksonville native, built a log
home in Cuyler three years ago. The Dippmanns love it here and
say that they will never leave.
A collector of old wooden topwater lures, the kind that his fa-
ther and grandfather taught him to fish with, he began to try to
reproduce these old classics. Two years later, he has established a
growing e-Bay and word-of-mouth business, and is exploring po-
tential retail placement
opportunities for his
"Granddad's Lures"
line of custom topwa-
ter lures. Some repeat
customers buy them
to collect and display,
never to be fished with. bi,
Randall has sold lures
to fishermen and collec-
tors across the country. Mr Dippman constructs his lures.
He crafts individually
unique topwater (i.e.
crank baits, jerk baits, poppers and buzz baits) only. The combina-
tions of shapes, styles and color patterns are practically endless.
A wounded minnow or a shiner-style bait, for example, can have
a perch color pattern, a shad color pattern, a dark water pattern, a
clear water pattern or any imaginable combination.
The process begins with a plain block of agathis (a type of fir
that grows in New Zealand) wood on a lathe. Agathis is chosen
for its light weight and weath-
er-and rot-resistant character-
-7 .istics. It is used extensively in
Sthe boat building industry for
-.ef these same reasons. The mate-
rial is meticulously shaped and
Some of 'Graddad's Lures' then fine-tuned and sanded by
hand. If there is even the slight-
est imperfection or flaw, Randall discards the piece. This standard
applies to every step of production.
When he is satisfied with the form and shape of a lure, the
long process of applying the finish begins. Although the time spent
physically working on each piece is measured in hours, most of
the two week-plus production time is consumed by each of the
five layers of finish being thoroughly dried and cured.
The lures are first dipped in a high quality primer and allowed
to dry for a week. They are then sanded again. Two coats of white,
yellow or black lacquer base paint are applied by hand. Randall
adds the color scheme and scale pattern with an air brush. Painted
or 3-D eyes are added before a 24-hour cure time. On rare occa-
sions an imperfect finish will be stripped and redone, but usually
any flaw will send an incomplete lure to the trash. The final layer
is a clear Epoxy dip that adds brightness, and a hard finish that
protects the lure and requires another week to dry and cure.
The last step is adding the hooks and other hardware. Randall
prefers Mustad hooks because they are light and sharp. Some of
his customers specifically request Owner hooks which are lighter
and sharper, but are much more expensive.
Time Out(doors) obtained a variety of "Granddad's Lures" for
evaluation. They will be tested in the Florida panhandle saltwater
flats and in and around the St. John's River from Lake George to
the Mayport jetties. The results of these field tests will be pre-
sented in a future column. E-mail Randall at granddadslures@
aol.com.
