Benefit raises


2000-plus turn out to aid injured Cat


BY JOEL ADDINGTON AND KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Melissa Raulerson's cell phone bill is usually about $80.
But after spending four weeks planning a benefit for injured Wild-
cat football player Milton "Oshay" Johnson III, her bill jumped to
$488.
"That's how many calls I received," Ms. Raulerson said proudly.
.The inflated bill is a testament to the outpouring of community
support that was on display September 27 at Heritage Park, where
Ms. Raulerson and co-worker Darlene Barton organized a concert
and dinner that raised more than $20,000 for the Johnson family's
mounting medical bills.
The benefit hosted a handful of local gospel groups that performed
while more than 2000 residents enjoyed food, games and the park's
historic exhibits.
Many in attendance, including Oshay Johnson's friends, family,
coaches and teammates, wore T-shirts bearing the young man's pic-
ture.
The day began with a parade in Oshay Johnson's honor.
It left from Memorial Stadium on 7th Street and headed west to
Heritage Park to kick off the event. The Baker County sheriff's de-


apartment and the Macclenny fire department led the way as the entire
Baker County High School football team followed.
The school marching band and baton twirlers as well as other pa-
rade participants followed and shouts of "We Love Oshay! We Love
Oshay!" could be heard over and over.
Football coach Bobby Johns, who visits Oshay at Shands Jackson-
ville several times weekly, brought everyone attending up to speed on
the young athlete's progress.
"He's getting back to the Oshay we all know and love," said Mr.
Johns, his voice breaking slightly with emotion. "He is a pleasure to
talk to."
Coach Johns explained how the BCHS team.carries Mr. Johnson's
No. 21 jersey with them to every game they play, but that the most
significant thing is that the players carry their teammate in their
hearts, everywhere they go.
After Coach Johns. spoke, Assistant City Manager Roger Yarbor-
ough, BCHS Superintendent Paula Barton and BCHS Principal John-
ny Jacobs took turns addressing the crowd.
Principal Jacobs described the first time he saw Oshay, then a

What good's a park without picnic tables and bathrooms?
That's what local officials are wondering and why they've applied for .,
more than $325,000 in state grant funds to improve parks in Macclenny,
Taylor and at the Steel Bridge Road boat ramp. "
Baker County and the City of Macclenny won't know if they're going ., .
to receive that money until February, but in a tight fiscal year where both .
municipalities have maintained or reduced their respective budgets, any
extra money is considered well worth the wait. -

County board


cuts property



taxes $220,000

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Property owners outside the City of Macclenny and the Town of
Glen St. Mary should pay less in county taxes this year due to the
Baker County Commission's decision on September 29 to lower the
property tax rate.
The board approved a rate of $7.43 per $1000 of taxable prop-
erty value, which is more than 11 percent below the rolled-back rate
needed to generate the same amount of tax revenues as last year.
At the new rate, a parcel with a taxable value of $100,000 would
pay $743 in county taxes.
Given the reduced rate, the increase in the homestead exemption
to $50,000 which will lower taxable property values and de-
clining market values in general, most residential property owners
should have a substantially smaller tax bill this year.
In all, the county's property tax revenues will decrease by about
$220,000 for the 2008-09 fiscal year.
However, the county's total budget, which commissioners also ap-
proved this week, has increased from $26.1 million in the 2007-08
fiscal year to $31.9 million for the fiscal year beginning October 1.
County Manager Joe Cone said the increase comes from more
substantial road improvement grants received from the state.
The road and bridge budget includes two resurfacing grants, total-
ing'more than $4 million. Those grants last year amounted to about
$750,000.
The commission also agreed to instruct Mr.Cone to negotiate
an agreement with Ayers Associates of Jacksonville for planning,
design and engineering services, on the St. Mary's Shoals Park proj-
ect.
Ayers was the topped ranked of six firms interviewed by a com-
mittee of county and state forestry officials last week.
Mr. Cone said the scoring criteria included experience, timeli-
ness, staffing and the ability to perform the work.
The project includes close to 20 miles of ATV and equestrian
trails at the 1600-acre park off Odis Yarborough Rd. as well as two
small bridges and an educational center.

Effects of credit crisis,


slump minimal- so far

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Financial markets are in disarray, credit is drying up and federal
officials continue to tweak a $700-billion plan to bailout the mort-
gage and banking industry.
But despite the tumultuous events of the past few weeks, the im-
pact in Baker County has been relatively minor thus far.
Interest rates have risen at some local banks due to the credit
crunch, but the county's branches aren't closing down, consumers
haven't begun withdrawing their life savings and local officials say
they're prepared to weather the storm.
Baker County took swift action last January to withdraw $3 mil-
lion invested with the State Board of Administration's (SBA) local
government investment pool.
The investment pool which functions like a money-market
fund for municipalities and school districts across the state was
hit hard when word got out that billions of dollars in the pool's port-
folio were invested in the risky sub-prime mortgage market.
Investors pulled $10 billion out within a few days, which caused
the state to freeze the fund and overhaul the SBA's investment guide-
lines and leadership by early 2008.
Cash in the local government investment pool has also consis-
tently declined since December of 2007 when the fund balance was
about $12 billion. Today it stands at a little more than $6 billion.
"We pulled most of our money out and put it in CDs (certificates
of deposit), so we're pretty protected," said Debbie Perryman, the
county's finance director..
As such, the county's exposure in the current crisis amounts to the
$522,000 left in the SBA investment pool today.
SBA has invested in several firms that have grabbed headlines in
the financial crisis. According to a recent press release, SBA holds

Wachovia fair exhibit Patriot Wdl'


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
When employees at Wachovia
Bank in Macclenny were brain-
storming recently for an idea for
their booth at the Baker County
Fair, they wanted to come up
with something reflecting the
fair's 2008 theme: A Star-Span-
gled Celebration.
"We knew we wanted some-


thing patriotic, something with
lots of red, white and blue," said
manager Helene Guest.
The idea for the fair booth
began to evolve into something
bigger, deeper and with more di-
mension. While still the prima-
ry idea behind their fiir booth, it
turned into a full-fledged com-
munity project sponsored by the
bank.

program for new additions and
renovations at the boat ramp and
Taylor community parks.
At the 2.5-acre boat ramp
park at 1911 Steel Bridge Road,
the county is seeking $75,000
match for its $25,000 contribu-
tion to fund new picnic facilities,
handicap-accessible rest rooms,
parking and landscaping; and
make improvements to shoreline
access and the boat ramp bulk-
head.
The Steel Bridge Road ramp
is the only boat access on the St.
Mary's River in Baker County.
The other $50,000 grant could
add handicap-accessible rest
rooms, new playground equip-
ment and covered picnic areas to
the 1.2-acre Taylor Rural Com-
munity Park at 26461 CR 250.
The grant would also include
renovating the existing basket-
ball court at the'park, which is
the only one in the Taylor area.
The City of Macclenny is
looking to add sorely-needed
parking at Heritage Park off S.
Lowder St. with the help of a
$200,000 grant.
The city intends to use the
cash to develop two acres lo-
cated immediately west of the
existing park with a playground,
basketball court, picnic tables,
grills and bathrooms in addition
to the parking lot.
The property was purchased
last August using a previous
$100,000 recreation develop-
ment assistance grant.

Benefit over weekend or injured Wildcat

freshman, on the field.
"He was going up against juniors and se-
niors, much bigger guys, on the Bishop Ken-
ney team. Oshay didn't even hesitate. He
came barreling down the field like he had
been fired from a cannon," said Mr. Jacobs.
"This young man was hurt preparing to rep-
resent Baker County. Now-it's our turn to
help support him and his family."
Oshay's parents, Adrium Jefferson and
Milton Johnson Jr., stood steadfastly on
stage, but were too overwhelmed with emo-
tion to speak. Oshay's cousin, Hank Farmer,
however, had some encouraging words for
the crowd.
"Keep up the prayers for Oshay and have
a good time today," he said.
Macclenny Pastor Joe Ruise of Emmanu-
el Church of God in Christ and Pastor Fred
Raulerson of Pine Level Church in Baxter
held hands as they each prayed for Oshay
and his family.
Ms. Raulerson and Ms. Barton expressed


their thanks to the community, city adminis-
trators and their families for supporting their
efforts to coordinate the event.
Ms. Barton urged the community to rally
further behind the family and help begin
raising funds to build a house especially
equipped to accommodate Oshay's needs
once he has returned from rehabilitation.
During a phone interview on October 1,
Ms. Raulerson said that many private citi-
zens and business owners have already made
pledges toward the goal of building such a
house.
"Oshay heard about the desire of the com-
munity to build his family a house on the
Channel 12 News coverage the night of the
event," said Ms. Raulerson. "He asked his
mother if he could have his own room. Later
when I visited him, he told me he wanted it
decorated in a hunting theme, with camou-
flage and deer."
Both organizers work at Northeast Florida
State Hospital with Oshay's parents.
Soon after the sophomore fractured his
vertebrae during football practice August 19,
they knew they had to act.


Credit crunch: city,



county out of fund...
(from page 1)
$323 million in Lehman Brothers, $164 million in Washington Mutual, $130.million in AIG and another
$939 in Merrill Lynch.
However, in all, those troubled firms only account for a little more than one percent of total SBA as-
sets.
More specifically, the local government investment pool holds about $540 million in Merrill Lynch
notes that are due to mature in December and $528 million in Bear Stearns notes that also mature at the
end of the year.
SThe City of Macclenny also participates in the SBA investment pool.
The city's office coordinator Ann Hunter estimated the city had about $1 million in the pool. She said
the funds are from water and sewer fees that have been paid up-front by developers, and will get withdrawn
as homes are built and connections to the water and sewer system become necessary.
"As long as the economy stays like it is, those houses won't be built and there won't be anything drawn
from that money," she said. "It's kind of on hold... We won't ever move it all at one time. It's moved slowly
as homes get built."
Ms. Hunter, who calls herself an "aggressive" investor, said the value of her personal portfolio has
dropped 20 percent.
On the private side, as credit lines have constricted, some local banks like Mercantile in Macclenny
have had to increase the cost of borrowing.
"It's tough," said Mercantile President John Kennedy. "It all relates to the housing market. Every bit of
it. Until big banks with home loans get some relief, we'll continue to see tough times."
Terry West, the CEO of Jacksonville's Vystar Credit Union, which has a Baker County branch, said his
institution is in a good position to weather the current crisis and has maintained its interest rates for the
past three or four weeks.
"We're fine," he said. "We have a strong net worth. We're conservative in how we make loans... We
never did sub-prime mortgages because we didn't think those were good for anybody."
Both officials didn't like the proposed congressional bailout by taxpayers, but said it was a necessary
evil.
"The market's correcting itself," said Mr. West. "[The bailout] is a tough decision but I think Congress
needs to do this. It's a planned approach to managing the crisis. If Congress doesn't do something to help
manage it, I think the economy could suffer more and taxpayers will suffer from that."


"When I heard about the accident I felt it
was something I had to do," Ms. Raulerson -
said the day of the benefit.
The event started out as a small fund-
raiser, but word spread and more and more
people, organizations and businesses wanted
to be involved in assisting the Johnson fam-
ily through their son's tragic injury.
"It just got bigger and bigger and bigger,"
said Ms. Barton.
And thanks to donations of time and mon-
ey from local government agencies, churches
and businesses, the price tag for the event
was zero.
"We didn't pay for anything," said Ms.
Raulerson.
"The community has stepped up that
much," added Ms. Barton.
Seeing a community come together to
help one of its own touched many people
at the event, perhaps no one more than the
Johnson family.
"It feels really good. The support is uplift-
ing," said Milton Johnson Jr.

Credit crunch resents second



Economics 101 lesson thisyear


The American public is getting a second real-life
Economics 101 lesson.this year with the failure of
the credit markets. .
Like the sharp rise in fuel prices a few months
ago, it is-the result of government interference with
free markets. In the case of gasoline, increased de-
mand worldwide coupled with doubts about our
nation's ability to tap into vast resources. Yes, that
had an effect on the futures market, which itself is
merely a symbol.
The price of oil on the ... """"
world market rose steeply,
followed by the price of
gasoline at the pump, be- 1 V LR
cause of uncertainty over
domestic supply. If you JIM
ask why, you need go no JIM
further than government
restrictions on current supply sources for oil and
natural gas. Couple that with the undesirability of
relatively safe nuclear power generation [France
has managed to build them] because of prohibitive
regulations and there you have it.
Look no further than the federal government in
the current credit crisis. It's not the sole reason for
Wall Street woes and the failure/sale of large bank-
ing and brokerage houses, but it's right up there in
front.
The federal government, via threats from the De-
partment of Justice on the banking industry a decade
ago to loosen rules for obtaining home mortgages,
is up to its teeth in this one.
Were people mad about $4 a gallon gas? Of
course.
Are they mad about the crisis in the lending and
banking world? I hope, and believe, they'll be mad-
der.
It's poor timing coming before next month's
presidential election because the ability of Joe Citi-
zen to sort through just how culpable the federal
government is in all this is muddied with political
backwash. If you're for Mr. Obama, you blame the
Republicans; the reverse if you're for Mr. McCain.
It's more infuriating when one realizes many of
the same clowns are now trying to fix this mess, and
I haven't seen a plan yet that can, or does, not in-


J1
Rom


volve a huge bailout using our money. We are send-
ing our children and grandchildren into a financial
hell even without the current crisis.
In a nutshell, Congress in its zeal to be politically
correct steered the federally run Freddie Mac and
Fannie Mae into the "sub-prime" mortgage market
where traditional underpinnings like ability to re-
pay were blithely tossed aside. Investors, including
brokerage houses and banks, gobbled up the "pack-
aged" investments re-sold mortgages both good
......a. and bad and leveraged
themselves heavily.
When the housing mar-
SI N S ket fueled by "easy money"
started to tank, when adjust-
AUL Y able rate mortgages inched
ULLEY upward and the Federal Re-
serve found itself unable to
loosen the money supply bang! Everything spi-
raled downward, and we ain't finished yet.
What we have is hundreds of billions of pack-
aged mortgages outstanding and nobody knows
exactly what they are worth. So the Treasury De-
partment says it'll come to the rescue, but it needs
$700 billion to re-cement the cascading foundation
that started with the sub-prime mortgage disaster.
Don't you believe it; the mess as it stands now
will exceed one trillion.
Furious Americans apparently bombarded mem-
bers of Congress over the weekend, and the result
on Monday was a defeat in the House of the bailout
measure.
Perhaps I'm simply not savvy enough to under-
stand the depth of the crisis, and need for a bail-
out of this magnitude, particularly with its bevy
of Democrat-supported spending earmarks. I'm a
"free market" disciple and as such believe the gov-
ernment, state or federal, is often the least desirable
way to right things.
It's unfortunate that our two economic lessons
since summer began are negative at least for now.
The bright side is we can learn from them, and pray
it triggers a re-birth of the principles that brought
this nation forward from a loosely knit coalition of
colonies 232 years ago.

I sat at the emergency room
with my son Spencer the other
day waiting for him to get a mi-
nor cut stitched up and overheard
the nurses talking about a South-
ern horoscope. I'm not someone
who is particularly interested in
the zodiac,
but I thought
this was pret-
ty interesting M
and found it
online. THEN
, Haven'tyet
seen the offi- ROBER
cial Southern
horoscope?
Read on:
V Dec 22-Jan. 20 Okra Al-
though you appear crude, you
are actually very slick on the
inside. Okras have tremendous
influence. An older Okra, can
look back over his life and see
the seeds of his influence every-
where. Stay away from Moon
Pies.
Sausage dog Tough skinned
and spicy, you are the life of the
party. People remember you long
after you've gone. You're really
good with onions and peppers,
but avoid a knish.
V Jan. 21-Feb. 19 Chitlins
You come from humble back-
grounds. A chitlin, however, can
make something of himself if
he's motivated and has lots of
seasoning. In dealing with chit-
lins, be careful. They can erupt
like Vesuvius. Chitlins are best
with catfish and okra.
VFeb. 20-Mar. 20 Boll Wee-
vil You have an overwhelming
curiosity. You're unsatisfied with
the surface of things, and you
feel the need to bore.deep into
the interior of everything. Need-
less to say, you are very intense
and driven as if you had some in-
ner hunger. Nobody in their right
mind is going to marry you, so
don't worry about it.
V Mar. 21- April 20 Moon
Pie You're the type that spends
a lot of time on the front porch.
It's a cinch to recognize the phys-
ical appearance of Moon Pies.
Big and round are the key words
Here. You should marry anybody
who you can get remotely inter-
ested in the idea. It's not going to
be easy. This might be the year
to think about aerobics. Maybe
not.
VApril 21 May 21 Pos-
sum When confronted with
life's difficulties, possums have
a marked tendency to withdraw
and develop a "don't bother me
about it" attitude. Sometimes you
become so withdrawn, people
actually think you're dead. This
strategy is probably not psycho-
logically healthy, but seems to
work for you. One day, however,
it won't work and you may find
your problems actually running
you over.
V May 22 June 21 Craw-
fish It is a water sign. If you
work in an office, you're always
hanging around tht water cooler.
crawfish prefer the beach to the
mountains, the pool to the golf
course, the bathtub to the living
room. You tend to be not particu-
larly attractive physically, but

New EMS contract levels raises,


ups holiday pay an
BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
A day before the county's contract'with emer-
gency medical service (EMS) workers was set to
expire, the Baker County Commission agreed Sep-
tember 29 to a wage increase, more holiday pay
and three other changes sought by the employees.
CommissionerGordon Crews said that with the
changes, the new annual contract was the best one
he's seen since taking office four years ago.
"It's just got a lot of common sense in it," he
said.
Contract negotiations have been ongoing be-
tween County Manager Joe Cone and the.union
representative, David Richardson of emergency
services, since August.
Under the new contract, EMS personnel will re-
ceive a pay increase equal to that of other county
workers (roughly $1000 more per year), double-
time pay for holidays worked while on overtime,
the ability to sell back 20 more hours of unused
sick time, new uniforms, and possibly, exercise
equipment.
There were a couple of compromises, though.
The union originally proposed increasing sell-
back time from 80 hours under the old contract to
120 hours under the new one.
Mr. Richardson said the change would likely
only affect two long-time employees who have ac-
cumulated close to 1000 hours of sick time because
they rarely take time off.
"It just keeps rolling over," he said. "But it won't
affect a lot of people."
Commissioner Alex Robinson said he'd ."re-
luctantly" agreed to a 100-hour limit on sell-back-
time.
Mr. Crews and the other commissioners (Julie
Combs was absent) agreed.


allows buyback
The other compromise came on the exercise
equipment.
Mr. Crews said the county offered to furnish
the equipment previously, but wanted employees to
sign an agreement to use it at least 30 minutes each
day.
That proposal was rejected by the EMS employ-
ees in the past, he said.
The board decided to insist on the stipulation in
the new contract.
"It will help with insurance and workers c6m-
pensation," said Mr. Crews.
Mr. Cone, however, made it clear that the exer-
cise equipment would not be new.
S"We're not talking Nautilus equipment here," he
said.
In fact, Mr. Cone said he'd be happy to take do-
nated exercise equipment from the public to help
keep the EMS workers in shape.
"You could probably fill a warehouse with all
the unused exercise equipment out there," he said.
Increasing the amount of holiday pay when
working on overtime was also something the work-
ers felt strongly about.
Under the old contract, EMS employees were
paid time-and-a-half when on overtime, whether it
was a holiday or not.
"Basically they're not getting anything extra,"
said Mr. Richardson. And since workers are paid
when they take a holiday off, "It benefits you more
not to work," he said.
By hiking it to double-time when working a
holiday while on overtime, Mr. Richardson said it
would be easier to fill holiday shifts with the extra
incentive.
He also estimated the holiday pay change would
cost an extra $5000 in the budget.


Traffic stop yields two felony arrests

Both occupants of a car stopped in southwest Macclenny about 11:00 the evening of September 27 were
arrested on felony drug charges after police found prescription medication in the vehicle.
Deputy Erik Deloach got behind the car driven by Steven Stiles, 31; of Glen St. Mary after observing what
he believed to be a narcotics transaction at the comer of Grissholm and South Boulevard in the neighbor-
hood known for drug-related activity. He stopped the vehicle after it failed to stop at 9th St. and Lowder.
The officer said he observed several pills later identified at Fraser Hospital as Soma, a muscle relaxant
available only by prescription. Neither Mr. Stiles nor passenger Raymond Strickland, 28, of Jacksonville
produced proof the drug had been prescribed, and the latter admitted to Deputy Deloach they had purchased
it moments before from a black male who was not identified.
Both were booked on third-degree felonies, and police learned Mr. Stiles is wanted on an outstanding
warrant. He was also ticketed for driving on a license with eight prior suspensions.
In other drug cases, Shawn Jones, 18, of Middleburg was charged with misdemeanor possession of mari-
juana found in a plastic bag with other belongings near a curb on the CVS Pharmacy property in downtown
Macclenny.
Deputy Matt Riegel went to the location about 1:30 am on September 27 on a loitering complaint and
saw Mr. Jones seated on the curb.
Samatha Grandgerald, 22, of Jacksonville was arrested on a similar charge after a baggie of pot was
found in a Jeep she was driving when it was stopped for speeding on Interstate 10.
Deputy Randy Davis said he clocked the eastbound vehicle at 94 mph about 9:00 pm on September 25
and detected an odor of marijuana emanating from the interior. The baggie was lodged between the console
and passenger seat, and a second occupant was not charged.

used to create a "Patriot Wall."
The bank put up signs in its lobby asking for
photos and solicited local churches by placing an-
nouncements in their Sunday bulletins.
"We realized there is nothing in the county that
functions as a tribute or memorial to people giv-
ing their time and sometimes their lives in service
to this country," Ms. Guest said. "We wanted our
project to address that."
Over the last several weeks the bank has col-
lected images brought in by former service men
and women and by people with family members in
the military. In all, 75 images were collected and
have been copied so originals can be returned to
the owners.
The team from Wachovia has also partnered
with the Jacksonville branch of the USO to collect
funds to purchase 100-minute phone cards. The
cards will .be included in Thanksgiving care pack-,
ages shipped to the soldiers, ensuring them an op-
portunity to call home during the holiday.
The funds are being generated in several ways.
AT&T is working in cooperation with the USO be-
cause the company can purchase phone cards at a
discounted rate. Wachovia is also collecting used
cell phones to ship to a company that refurbishes
the phones, sells them, then donates the cash back
to the USO for the purchase of the phone cards.
Wachovia will accept straight donations also. A
$25 donation will fund one care package for a ser-
vice member.
"We are very pleased to be taking part in such a
worthwhile cause overall," said Ms. Guest, "but as-
sembling the "Patriot Wall" has got us the most ex-

The collection represents people from different
backgrounds and age groups in service to a com-
mon cause the defense and freedom of the Unit-
ed States.
Ms. Guest's father is among the images. His
black and white visage looks out from a desert
background where he was stationed in Iran (for-
merly Persia) during WWII.
Brothers, cousins, husbands, -sisters and wives
are represented. One photohows a husband and
wife, both of whom were serving in the Navy at the
same time. Nearby is their son's photo, a. Marine
currently stationed in Iraq.
A group of photos from a squadron in Iraq
shows soldiers going about their daily tasks: cleai-
ing weapons, patrolling, eating, working on heli-
copter engines, sprawled out on a cot, catching a
much needed 40 winks of sleep.
"People are excited about seeing the photos
assembled," said Ms. Guest. "Right now, there is
nothing that we are aware of in the community that
serves as a monument to honor those performing or
who have performed military service."
After the fair, the Patriot Wall will be erected in
the lobby of the local branch.
"I think it would be a wonderful thing for one
of the city administration offices to establish some
sort of display where such images can be seen reg-
ularly by the public," said Ms. Guest.

Woman is


victim of


Medicare


phonescam

An elderly Macclenny wom-
an was the victim of a telephone
scam earlier this month, the re-
sult of a solicitation for a Medi-
care health care package.
Jimmie Snell, 80, of Macclen-
ny informed the sheriff's depart-
ment about the call on September
25. She received it on September
10 from a person who identified
herself as Ruth 'Collins from the
Medicare agency. The caller ap-
peared to have accurate personal
information on the victim, who
authorized a $394.45 withdrawal
from her credit card account, os-
tensibly the cost of a new plan to
lower her insurance rates for the
coming year.
Ms. Snell was advised the
next day of the possible fraud,
and learned from the Medicare
office that no one with that name
worked there, nor does the fed-
eral agency solicit over the tele-
phone.
The victim's credit card pro-
vider confirmed the payment
was sent to a company ironically
named Integrity Identity in Que-
bec, Canada.
In another credit card fraud
case involving an elderly victim,
George Gay, 84, of Sanderson
reported September 27 his .card
was used to purchase nearly
$400 in liquor and cigarettes
from Cuz's One Stop.
Mr. Gay told Deputy Cur-
tis Ruise he likely left his wal-
let atop a newspaper vending
machine that morning. A clerk
at Cuz's said a black male and
white female later used a card to
make the purchases. They appar-
ently attempted unsuccessfully
to use it at a Macclenny conve-
nience store.
SPaul Grainger of Glen St.
Mary reported on September 23
his Wachovia card was used since
early August to withdraw $1900
from banks in North Carolina,
Jacksonville and once in Mac-
clenny. All of the withdrawals
were for $100; the bank does not
require identification for them at
$100 or less.
A Vystar checking card be-
longing to Melody Williams of
Glen St. Mary was used four
times as payment to Web sites
for a total of $155 between Sep-
tember 19-22. Her card informa-
tion was apparently stolen from
her computer.


'Protected' name

A man found walking near Pine Top Rd. west of Glen St. Mary late
on September 27 initially refused to give his name to a county deputy
because he claimed to be in the witness protection program.
Sgt. Thomas Dyal said he responded to a suspicious person call
about 11:00 and found the man, later identified as Michael Aramus, 49,
walking along the railroad tracks.
"1 approached the suspect and asked for his identification," reads
Sgt. Dyal's report. "The suspect advised that he didn't have one. I
asked the suspect for his name and he advised that he was in witness
protection and couldn't give me his real name."
The man eventually gave the officer his real name, along with a
birth date that would have made him 60 years old. Sgt. Dyal chal-
lenged him on that also, and he was taken to jail.
The report does not indicate an address, only that Mr. Aramus was
born in Spain.
The witness protection program is employed by federal agencies
to give persons at risk due to their testimony in criminal cases a new
identity and occupation.
In other cases, an arrest warrant was due this week for Bryan Paige,
37, of Glen St. Mary, who ran from a sheriff's investigator when he
was spotted on MLK Dr. in Macclenny the afternoon of September
26.
Investigator James Nickles said he was aware that Mr. Paige had
an outstanding warrant for driving on a suspended license,'and ap-
proached him from an unmarked police vehicle. He grabbed the sus-
pect by the shirt, and Mr. Paige then took off running toward Keller
Intermediate School.
The second warrant is for resisting arrest without violence.
Deputy Larry Moore arrested Thomas Vann, 54, of Macclenny the
evening of September 24 on a Volusia County warrant for non-pay-
ment of child support. The arrest took place on Frank Combs Circle in
the north county.

Steals itemsfrom Glen subdivision site
A 17-year-old male from Glen St. Mary was arrested in the early morning of September 24 and charged
with vandalism and theft of two brass water faucets from the Greystone subdivision off US 90 at the east
town limits.
Deputy Darrin Whitaker said he questioned the youth near the Little St. Marys River bridge about 1:35
after spotting him walking eastbound on a sidewalk. The boy was carrying a flashlight and produced the
two faucets from pants pockets, all of which he took from a lot at the subdivision. They are the property of
Collins Builders of Jacksonville.
Sgt. Whitaker said the faucets had been removed from plastic piping on the property, and the immediate
area was flooded. The youth was charged criminal mischief and petty theft.
In other vandalism cases, Chance Jones, no address listed, reported damage to the door of his 2004 Chev-
rolet pickup while it was parked at the Exxon Store in west Macclenny the evening of September 22. There
is a suspect.
Valerie Givens reported a broken front door window at her residence off California Ct. in Sanderson
the afternoon of September 24 while she was away for several hours. Nothing was reported missing from
the interior.

ATV accident injures 2

Two ATV riders were flown to Shands Jacksonville with serious
injuries after their vehicle went out of control on Fred Raulerson Lane
in the north county the afternoon of September 29.
The 2006 Honda was driven by Michael Jewel of Sanderson and
Thomas Harvey of Glen St. Mary was a passenger. Both are 17 years
old.
Trooper Dan Myers of the Florida Highway Patrol said the Honda
was westbound on the dirt road and went out of control on a left curve.
It slid off onto the westbound tree line where it struck an oak tree,
ejecting the driver.
The ATV rotated once again and struck another oak tree on the left
rear, ejecting the passenger.
Charges pend further investigation. The accident happened at 3:00.


DU other charges after


deputy spots swerving SUV

A Macclenny motorist faces multiple charges after his careening
SUV was stopped by a county deputy on South 6th in Macclenny late
on September 26.
Deputy Matt Riegel said he spotted the southbound vehicle about
11:00 about the time it struck a concrete divider, then noted it veered
off the pavement after he got behind it and initiated the stop.
Driver Nicholas Byram, 25, was unsteady on his feet and smelled
strongly of alcohol, the arrest report reads, and the driver failed several
field sobriety tests before being taken to county jail. Once there, he
refused to submit to a breath analysis.
Mr. Byram was booked for DUI and declining to take the breath
test, careless driving, not wearing a seat belt and failure to produce a
driver's license.
Thaddus Walker, 18, of Lake, Miss. was arrested following a traf-
fic stop the afternoon of September 21 in west Macclenny.
Deputy Patrick McGauley said he clocked Mr. Walker's 1998 Ford
at 45 mph in a 30 zone in west Macclenny about 3:30. A computer
check revealed the license had expired and been suspended in Missis-
sippi.

'Yarn tas

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
"Is that a modified Plymouth
Surrey?"
"Did you try this Alpaca?"
Such comments filled the
air as patrons chatted away and
sampled the wares offered at The
Local Needle's first anniversary
celebration and yarn tasting held
September 27.
Yes, you read that right yarn
tasting. Wine glasses filled with
balls of yarn in various shades
and textures were offered to cus-
tomers attending the event. In
this instance, however, custom-
ers were knitting, instead of im-
bibing.
Alpaca and Plymouth Surrey
were just a few samples of new
yarns offered this season by the
knitting supply shop on US 90 in
Macclenny. The shop was over-
flowing with natural fiber yarns
in vibrant colors.
Foot traffic was heavy in the
store from 10:00 am until 4:00
pm with many patrons driving
out from Jacksonville, Flem-
ming Island, The Beaches and
surrounding areas.
For those bitten with the knit-
ting bug, sampling different
yarns can be as enjoyable as tast-
ing a good, chilled chardonnay
or a full-bodied shiraz. Patrons
were offered wine, cheese and'
chocolate, but it was the yarn
that was the highlight of the
"tasting."
The event also featured a
trunk show of beautiful designs
by well known knitter and de-
signer Hanne Falkenberg.
Ms. Falkenberg, a household
name among serious knitters, is
well-known in the yarn world for
her contemporary sweater de-
signs. Her sweater kits were one
of the goodies available for knit-
ters to sink their needles into.
"Trunk shows move from
store to store on an established
route. I was lucky to get the one
featuring Ms. Falkenberg's work
for my one year anniversary,"
said Joan Trawick, The Local
Needle's owner.
Garments featured in such
shows give knitters a first hand
look at the highest levels of
craftsmanship since they are de-
signed by professionals.
Calendars Restaurant, located
next door to the shop, cooperat-
ed with the event by setting up a
"Sit N' Knit station, an area spe-
cifically for the visiting knitters
to kick back, knit, socialize and
relax over a bite of lunch.

"Knitters, when they travel
and visit stores in other towns,
tend to bring their knitting with
them and set up house for a
while," said Mr. Traywick.
Conversation .among the knit-
ters often focused on industry
books such as The Knitting
Circle by Ann Hood and refer-
ences to Elizabeth Zimmerman,
who started a knitting school in
Wisconsin and is credited with
preserving traditional hand knit-
ting and propelling it into the
21st Century as a viable, popular
craft.
According to Ms. Traywick,
her store has developed a group
of what she calls "local loyals."
Knitters have a tendency to de-
velop close friendships and even
form their own knitting circles
outside of the shop environment
where they meet to take classes.
These are "knit-alongs" and in
Macclenny, they happen a couple
times a month at Starbucks and
the Wal-Mart Subway.
Ms. Traywick has participated
in these knit-alongs herself. For
her, the real pleasure is working
with beginning knitters and fol-
lowing their progress.
"Seeing them progress to the
point where they are confident to
start a project such as a sweater
is a big reward to me," she said.
The Local Needle store grew
out of what began as a home-
based business which mainly


processed sales for online knit-
ters. Ms. Traywick gave kudos to
two of her "local loyals," knitters
Kaycee Heinz and Jeff Ward, for
helping make the event a suc-
cess. Ms. Heinz brought beauti-
ful orchids from her greenhouse
for decoration and Mr. Ward, an
accomplished knitter, loaned his
- table runners and other items for
display.

Arrests for


release of


AC fluid


atWcstside

Two male suspects, one of
them a juvenile, are charged
with felony criminal mischief
for opening pressured air con-
ditioning valves on the roof of
SWestside Elementary and releas-
ing $16,519 worth of antifreeze
compound.
The sheriff's department
made the arrests last week fol-
lowing an investigation of nearly
two months since the incidents
occurred in late July and early
August.
Seven others who climbed
two security fences and hopped
onto the school roof via a refrig-
eration unit ndar the Westside
cafeteria are charged with mis-
demeanor trespass.
Charged with third-degree
felonies are Bradley Home, 18,
of Sanderson and a 17-year-old
male from Macclenny. The ar-
rests were made on the basis of
interviews with others involved
in the incident who told sheriff's
investigators they saw the two
open the valves.
"They did it for entertainment
because the liquid shot 10-15 feet
in the air and was pressurized,"
said chief investigator Chuck
Brannan, who made the arrests
September 26 and 29.
The liquid, propylene glycol,
is used in the school's chiller
units to keep water from freez-
ing. The school district said 21
barrels of the product were need-
ed to re-fill the system.
The suspects told police they
climbed onto the mostly flat roof
of the Glen St. Mary school to
drink alcohol and sit atop the
higher peaked roof over the li-
'brary. The vandalism occurred
during a three-day period starting
July 31, said the investigator.
Police had scant leads initially
until one of the trespass suspects,
Robert Kelly, 18, of Sanderson
showed up at the school office
in early August and claimed
his girlfriend misplaced his cell
phone on the grounds during a
scavenger hunt. In truth, he left
it on the roof, where he retrieved
it after leading office staff to be-
Slieve the phone was behind the
school.
A description of Mr. Kelly led
investigators to. him, and they
picked up another lead from a
parent who became aware of the
incident and interviewed the par-
ticipants over a period of several
weeks.
Investigator Brannan said all
but Mr. Kelly are 2008 graduates
of Baker County High School.
Another suspect charged with
trespass is a 17-year-old female
from Glen. The others are Kyle
Kennedy, Ryan Monds and Cas-
sandra Adams of Glen; Lisa
Mackey ofSanderson and Ryan
: Stampe of Lawtey. All are 18
years old..
The Westside air conditioning
system installed last year is de-
signed on the "thermal storage"
model that freezes water during
off-peak night hours, then cir-
culates it through the buildings
during the day. The propylene
glycol lowers the freeze point of
water to keep it a liquid.
A school maintenance worker
contacted the sheriff's depart-
ment after investigating lack of
cool air inside the building and
finding the released chemical on
the roof, along with the opened
valves.
In a second school vandalism
case, someone trashed a class-
room at Baker County Middle
School overnight on September
26.


School officials reported a fire
extinguisher was sprayed inside
the classroom of Kevin Meister,
student papers were tossed on
the floor and obscenities drawn
on desk tops and blackboards.

Suspect in thefiofseven guns


said to be in Sarasota rehab

A 39-year-old Macclenny man currently at a Sarasota rehab center
was named as the person who took seven pistols and a shotgun from
a locked cabinet at a residence off Short Putt Dr. sometime earlier this
month.
Raymond Tems reported the theft on September 25 and named Da-
vid Brannen, 39, as the likely suspect. He is the son of Mr. Tems' girl-
friend Kathy Stone, who reportedly took him to the rehab facility ,on
September 23 for treatment of a crack cocaine addiction.
The guns were valued at $2650, and included a pistol Mr. Tems was
holding as collateral for a loan made to a friend.
The victim said Mr. Brannen earlier said his daughter misplaced
the cabinet key, and that she would return it to him. Later, Mr. Tems
learned from the daughter she said no such thing and knew nothing
about a missing key.
Deangelo Thomas, 28, of Raiford, described as a friend of Mr. Bran-
nen, told Deputy Deputy Jerald Peterson that the suspect confessed to
stealing the guns and said he traded them for crack. He will likely be
arrested later for grand theft of firearms, a felony.
In other case involving a gun cabinet, Sally Williams reported Sep-
tember 24 that her son Aaron Salts confronted a neighbor that after-
noon standing by the cabinet in the bedroom of her residence on Gatlin
St. in south Macclenny.
The neighbor, identified as Genero Harris, 22, was also seen by Mr.
Salts attempting to open a rear door. Mr. Genero, when questioned
by Deputy Chris Walker, denied involvement. Nothing was reported
taken from the cabinet.
A 17-year-old male was arrested September 27 for burglary and
grand theft at a residence off Ben Rowe Circle south of Macclenny
three days earlier.
Angela Norton reported the theft of various electronic games, jew-
elry and a camera, and told Deputy Erik Deloach that her husband saw
the youth sitting in front of their residence on their residence when he
returned from work the day of the thefts.
The youth admitted to the crime when questioned, but denied steal-
ing some of the games. He led police to the home of a person who
purchased the camera from him for $60, and the remainder of the prop-
erty was recovered from a residence on Morningside Ln. where he had
been living with relatives.
Wires valued at $700 were severed from the base of a commu-
nications tower owned by Verizon Communications off US 90 near
Sanderson overnight on September 23.


Wife adds sexual battery


complaint to earlier one

A woman who filed a domestic battery complaint against her ex-
husband September 20 contacted authorities again this week to add a
sexual battery charge to the case.
Shirley Barton, 41, told deputies she was punched in.the nose and
knocked unconscious that evening by 29-year-old George Barton Jr.
while exiting a tent they were sharing in the backyard of Mr. Barton's
mother's house at 14630 Boyce Rd. in Glen St. Mary.
Four days later Ms. Barton reported to authorities that Mr. Bar-
ton sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious. Investigator
Brad Dougherty met with the victim September 26 and took her state-
ment.
Ms. Barton told the deputy that when she regained consciousness
the night of the incident, she awoke unclothed to Mr. Barton sexually
assaulting her inside the tent.
According to the investigator's report, th6 victim then ran inside
the house, put on clothes and went to bed. She awoke a short time
later to find occupants of the house going through her purse and that's
when she called the sheriff's office.
Ms. Barton also went to the emergency room three times due to
constant bleeding, but each time left before being examined.
Deputy Dougherty also noted that the suspect and victim had been
drinking the evening of the incident and that each time he'd spoken
with Ms. Barton she was intoxicated.
When questioned by Deputy Mike Walker the night of the alleged
assaults,.Mr. Barton said his ex-wife fell and injured herself.
The state attorney's office will decide whether to file domestic
and/or sexual battery charges against the suspect.
In other violent crimes this week:
SLee Seabrook of Jacksonville reported that a group of three white
males in a white truck followed him onto the interstate and began
ramming his vehicle in an effort to push ot off road the evening of
September 27.
The victim then fired two warning shots from his pistol and the
truck rammed him again before exiting onto the highway off-ramp.
Mr. Seabrook said the incident occurred when he left work at the
KFC on S. 6th St. where he is a manager. The trio of males became
upset earlier in the evening when he told them to leave the restaurant's
parking lot.
Ronnie Phelps of Starke was accused of threatening to shoot fel-
low hunting club members in Sanderson September 26 after drove
around a locked gate in the hunting camp and flatten his tires on a
board of nails.
Danny Jones, the vice president of the One Shot Hunting Club in
Sanderson, said Mr. Phelps had been warned on several occasions
about driving around closed gates at the camp and when warned
again last week made a comment about shooting whomever placed
the board of nails. That's when Mr. Jones said he revoked Mr. Phelps'
club membership.
Mr. Jones filed the report with the sheriff's office due to the nature
of the comments made by the suspect, who police were unable to lo-
cate because he lives outside Baker County.
Officers received three battery complaints from patients at North-
east Florida State Hospital. The first occurred September 22 when
staffer Mark Durica said two days prior a female patient suffered a
broken arm after a male patient, 29, pushed her to the floor.
A female patient filed a battery complaint against another female
on September 25. The victim said the assailant struck her from be-
hind with a fist that morning and that it was the third time in the past.
month the suspect had attacked her for no reason. The complaint was


forwarded to the state attorney.
The last case was reported September 27 when a male patient said
he was struck from behind while eating lunch by another male patient
two days earlier. The deputy noted no visible marks where the victim
had been hit. A battery complaint was filed with the state attorney.
The same day, Jon Sapp, 21, was arrested for allegedly grabbing
girlfriend Nicole Zimmerman, 22, by the arms and forcibly stopping
her from leaving their residence on W. North Blvd. about 11:30 pm.
Responding Deputy Matthew Riegel noted large red marks on the
victim's arms that appeared to be from hands.

Optimum time for planting


strawberries in early October

By ALICIA LAMBORN
Extension Horticulture Agent

Strawberries are a very popular crop here in Florida, and can be
grown in gardens throughout all areas of the state. Planting dates for
north Florida are between October 1-November 15, although the ear-
lier they are planted the better.
During .the fall plants grow vegetatively, followed by flower for-
mation and later fruit production in response to the shorter days and
cooler nights of winter. The leaves will withstand the cold weather,
but if plants lose their flowers and early fruit due to a frost or freeze,
a later crop will develop. The fruit is ready for harvest about a month
after flowers are formed, and protecting early blossoms will result in
early fruit.
Strawberries prefer well-drained, moist, sandy soils with lots of or-.
ganic matter, but accept most all soil types. Before making the beds,
broadcast fertilizer over the plot and work it into the soil. Use two
pounds of a 6-8-8 fertilizer per 100 square feet. Prepare beds using the
hill system, spacing rows 36-40 inches apart. Apply more of the same
fertilizer in a single, narrow band between rows, four to eight inches
deep. Applying fertilizer directly under plants will cause foliar wilting
due to salt burn.
Mulching is not necessary but recommended. While straw and oth-
er natural organic materials may be used, black polyethylene plastic
mulch has proven to work best. If plastic is used, apply a 1-1 mil-
limeter thick sheet to cover the top and sides of the bed. This should
be done just before planting. Soil can be placed on the edges to hold
it in place and holes can be cut at the proper intervals for plants to be
inserted (plants should be spaced 10-14 inches apart).
Purchase certified, disease-free plants and be sure to keep them
moist before planting. Make sure the soil is moist when you plant them
into the ground, which will prevent transplant shock. Spread the roots
out in a fan-shape (do not double or crumple up), and set plants at the
correct depth. Do not cover the crown, but do not leave tops or roots
exposed. Finally, pack the soil around the roots firmly, and sprinkle
with water from overhead.
Overhead irrigation will fill in the soil around the roots and keep the
tops from drying out until the roots can get established. Once estab-
lished, a drip irrigation line can be used as long as it is not placed over
the band of fertilizer, which would cause the leaching of nutrients and
therefore nutrient deficiencies.
Suggested varieties for the Florida garden include Camarosa, Fes-
tival and Sweet Charlie. Camarosahas been tested in North Florida
and is one of the most productive varieties. There are also many other
varieties of strawberries available. However, it is important to select
a variety adapted to Florida conditions. For example, stay away from
everbearingg" varieties of strawberries.
If you would like to grow strawberries but are limited on space, try
growing them in planter boxes, strawberry pots or barrels. For more
information, contact Alicia Lambom, horticulture agent, at the Baker
County Extension Office at 259-3520 or alambor@ufl.edu.

Johnson thank you
Words cannot express our ap-

were replaced with tears. So, on
behalf of Oshay, we would like

prayers, and time dedicated to
seeing us through.
You have no idea how much
it means to Oshay and his fam-
ily to know that he has caring
people like you on his team. As
we persevere on this journey,
God places each of you in a po-
sition to give us hope when we
are hopeless and strength when
we are weak-and for that, we say
thank you.

Wildcats remain



undefeated with



26-6 Raines win


When the Wildcats' football
schedule came this summer,
anybody who casually scanned
it opened their eyes wide when
they got to the fourth game of the
season. There it was in black and
white at Raines High School
in the district opener.
, If you know football you
know Raines and the tradition
that lives at "The Graveyard,"
their storied field. Names like
NFL great Harold Carmichael
come to mind when you think
Raines. This game would be the
unofficial start of the season.
Raines was down this year,
going into the game 0-3, but that
doesn't mean that the Vikings
weren't loaded with hard-hitting
and impressive Division 1 pros-
pects. It promised to be a helmet
rattler.
It lived up to the hype. This
was a game of two intensely
physical halves. The Wildcats
came out of the game with a 26-
6 victory, but tough win. They
only managed one score in the
second, leaving it up to the de-
fense to preserve the win.
The victory made it four in a
tow in the still-young season.
i From early in the game it was
a defensive battle. That was to
be expected when you match
two teams known for punish-
ing defense. Raines stopped the
opening Wildcat drive and the
Cats returned the favor. Cody
Wheeler and& re"k McCullough
both recorded sacks on quarter-
back Cedric McCloud.
, It was a different story when
the Cats got the ball on the sec-
ond series. Harold Moore took
the ball to the 41 yard line and a
ilay later Darvin Ruise cracked
4 40-yard run for the first touch-
down of the game. Ruise deliv-
.red a nice stiff-arm to power
him into the end .zone. The con-
version attempt was no good.
; Raines struck immediately.
Julius Frazier took the kickoff
and raced down the sideline to
the 1-yard line. A penalty moved
it back to the 6 but two plays later
p'Angelo Jordan tied the game.
The PAT was no good.
S BCHS took the ball and
marched down the field, taking
lots of time off the clock as it did
so. They ran the first quarter out
driving to mid-field and Ruben
Jackson and Hank Farmer took
bver. They drove the ball from
the mid-field stripe deep into
Raines territory. Ruise pushed
it in from two yards out for the
second' score. Once again, the
conversion was no good.
: The brutal defensive effort
from the Wildcat defense con-
tinued. The Vikings were un-


successful all half running the
ball and the offense fell to Mc-
Cloud. The talented quarterback
couldn't find his receivers as he
was flushed out of the pocket by
heavy pressure.
The Cats got the ball back
with time running out in the first
half. Williams took the ball to the
44 and Jackson brought it to mid-
field. Raines had trouble all night
defending Darvin Ruise and the
fleet signal caller punished them
again. Ruise turned a broken
play into a 50-yard touchdown
scamper. This time the conver-
sion wa good for a 20-6 lead to
end the half.
As impressive an offensive
show as the Cats put on in the
first half, after intermission it
seemed as if the air had gone out
of the ball and the respective de-
fenses took'over. Both defenses
did their jobs in a very physical
game.
McCloud got some rhythm
going in near the end of the quar-
ter and connected on some me-
dium pass plays. He found some
open receivers to move the ball
to the Wildcat 11-yard line, and
that is where the drive stalled.
The linebackers and defensive
backs wore the receivers like a
cheap suit and on fourth down,
McCloud got a bad snap and had
to go to one knee to get the ball.
The Cats had dodged a bullet in
"The Graveyard".
BCHS needed a big drive to
run out the clock, but the desper-
ate Vikings were able to stop the
Cats and get the ball back. Mc-
Cloud cocked his arm and threw
it down field.
Once again, Ruise proved
their undoing. He made a great
over-the-shoulder interception
to stop the drive, Time clicked
down and neither team really got
going. The Cats pressured Mc-
Cloud on almost.every pass play
and he was forced to go for it on
fourth down.
There was only one score in
the second half. The Cats took
over in Viking territory. Ruise
scampered to the 30 and from
there Ruben Jackson punished
the defenders with run after run
from his fullback position. Jack-
son finally punched it in from 11
yards out for the final score of
the game.
The Cats will travel to Rid-
geview next week for a 7:30 pm
kickoff with a district win under
their belt.
Darvin Ruise had 164 yards
rushing. The Cats once again
rushed for 300 yards and held
the Vikings under 100 yards on
offense. .

NFLB youth competition comes to town,

JV football squad posts close to 500 yards


SBY CHUCK NICHOLS
Press Staff
More than 50 Baker County
youths participated in the Pepsi-
NFL Punt Pass & Kick competi-
tion September 20 at Memorial
Stadium.
The event was sponsored by
the Baker County Touchdown
Club (BCTC) for players and
cheerleaders involved in this
year's football league.
Each participant was judged
on distance and accuracy in at-
tempting to throw, punt and kick
a football from a tee as far as
possible and as close to a provid-
ed line as possible. The distance
from the line is deducted from
the total distance in each event.
Then the three final distances
are added together for the total
score of the participant.
All participants were award-
ed a certificate signed by NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell
and NFL Punt, Pass & Kick rib-
bons were given for first through
third places in each age group.
Winners were Caleb Crews
(boys 8-9), Hunter Riggs (boys
10-11), Joshua Allen (boys 12-
13), Bailie Cochran (girls 10-11)
and Megan Powell (girls 12-13).
They will go on to a sectional
competition November 8 at 2:00
pm at the Dupont Family YMCA
in Jacksonville. Those winners
will have a chance to compete at
halftime during the Jacksonville
Jaguars game against the Min-
nesota Vikings November 23.
Previous participants in the
NFL Punt, Pass & Kick events
include former Denver Broncos
quarterback John Elway and
Peyton Manning, the quarter-
back for the Indianapolis Colts.
The BCTC league is going
strong as the weather is cooper-
ating, unlike last year, and teams
are nearing the halfway mark of
the season. Here are the win-loss
records of the teams to date.
In the Pee Wee Division: the
'Bucs (0-2), the Cowboys. (1-0),
the Eagles (1-1), the Giants (0-1),
the Jaguars (2-0), the Packers (2-
0) and the Vikings (0-2).
In the Middle Division: the
Chargers (1-1), the Jets (1-1), the
Lions (0-2), the Panthers (2-0),
the Raiders (2-0) and the Titans
(0-2).
In the Senior Division: the
league includes Jamboree games
as part of the regular season
games. Therefore, including
Jamboree games the Falcons (2-


2), the 49ers (3-0), the Patriots
(0-4) the Redskins (1-2) and the
Steelers (3-1).
Keep up the good work.

JV Wildcats offense
explodes

The Junior Varsity Wildcats
continue to show that they are
something special on the foot-
ball field.
After hammering Union
County 38-6 at home September
18, the team traveled to Bradford
County last week, and behind
their best offensive showing of
the year, pounded out almost
500 yards of offense on the way
to the 38-12 win.
Head Coach Ronald Lee de-
clared it. "our most outstanding
offensive effort yet."
Standouts included Jered Lee
who had 126 yards rushing on
14 carries, 43 yards on three re-
ceptions and two rushing touch-
downs.
Running back "Dreak" Ford
carried the ball eight times for
73 yards, caught two passes
for 55. yards and a touchdown,
and threw two completions for
44 more yards. Quarterback
Thomas Sirk went three-for-
three passing for 80 yards and a
touchdown, rushed for 41 yards
and caught a 25 yard touchdown
pass.
Officially the team posted
487 yards in total offense in the
game.
Coach Lee also praised the
efforts of the his defense.
"We had three young men
that had an outstanding defen-
sive game," he said.
Middle linebacker Jered Lee
had eight tackles and a fumble
recovery. Nose-tackle Hunter
Sullivan added six tackles and
outside linebacker Richie Thar-
pe matched that with six tackles
of his own.
"Our line coaches Brett
Dopson and Brock Canaday -
deserve a lot of the credit for the
success of this team," Lee said
before applauding offensive co-
ordinator Chat Johns.
"He's doing a great job call-
ing our offense," said Lee.
The JV Wildcats will host
Suwanee at 7:00 pm October 2.
The following week's game at
Nease has been moved up to Oc-
tober 7 at 7:00 pm.
The Baker County Middle
School Bobcats also won its

son continues to go well on Sat-

Cats facing

experienced

Ridgeview

The 4-0 Wildcats this week
once again go on the road to take
on the powerful Ridgeview Pan-
thers, a team with a lot of weap-
ons and a lot of experience..
The Panthers return 17 play-
ers from last year's 4-6 team that
was a disappointment for Coach
Tom McPherson. One of those
losses was.an embarrassing 42-
14 drubbing at the hands of the
Wildcats in Macclenny.
The Panthers will want to
make up for that miscue and
have the guns to challenge the
Wildcats. Quarterback, Derek
Hatcher has a good arm.and can
run the ball. He likes to look for
Demario Kohn, who caught a
48-yard touchdown pass against
Ponte Vedra.
The Panthers suffered a hard
loss to ex-Wildcat coach Danny
Green's Orange Park Raiders in
the first game of the season, but
Same back with a pair of games
to get on the winning track.
Offensively, look for Tyler
Bass, a talented return man who
had a 97-yard kickoff scramble
for a touchdown, Lamar Ezell
and kicker Michael Taylor, who
can boot them from distance.
With so many experienced
players on both sides of the ball,
Panther fans are looking for .a
trip to the playoffs and though
not a district contest for the the
Wildcats, it will certainly be a
measuring stick to see how close
they are to achieving their goal.

efferson out ofrace; Crews

new District commissioner

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
County commission candidate Philip Jefferson dropped out of the
race against fellow Sanderson resident Michael Crews for the district
1 seat on the Baker County governing board.
Mr. Crews, a Republican, defeated incumbent Julie Combs in the
August primary election and would have faced Mr. Jefferson, a Dem-
ocrat, in the general election November 4. Mr. Crews has now won
the race by default.
However, even though not in the race, Mr. Jefferson's name will
appear on the ballot.
"It's too late to get it off," said Carol Ruise of the election supervi-
sor's office. "Absentee ballots have already been sent out."
Letters will be sent to all voters who requested absentee ballots
after Mr. Jefferson's withdrawal, informing them of the change, and
any votes cast for the candidate will not be counted.
In the other local races, incumbent Sheriff Joey Dobson, a Demo-
crat, will face off against Republican Gregory Bohannon and Inde-
pendent Timothy Smith, and Republican Vincent Ferreria will take
on Democrat Sherrie Raulerson for Superintendent of Schools.
The candidates will speak at a rally at the fairgrounds October 18
sponsored by The Baker County Press. State and federal candidates
on next month's ballot will also be invited.
The final days have also arrived for new voters to register and reg-
istered voters to update their information.
The deadline to register to'vote, change parties, update an address
or change a name is October 6, when the voting rolls are finalized.
Do any of the above by going to the supervisor's office at 32 N.
5th St., Suite A, in Macclenny or online at www.bakerelections.com
under the voter info section.
Once registered, either show up at an assigned polling place on
election day, vote early or vote by absentee ballot.
Early voting is October 20 through November 1 at the elections
office between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.
Request an absentee ballot through the mail by calling 259-6339 or
going to the Web site. Absentee ballots must be returned to the office
by November 4.
So far, the office has received about 900 requests for absentee bal-
lots.
