Local 'big ticket'


retailer woes result


from credit crunch
BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
The credit crisis in recent weeks has severely limited consumer
purchasing power for big-ticket merchandise, which is taking its toll
on local businesses some more so than others.
Credit relief from the Wall Street bailout can't come soon enough
for Mike Dees, sales manager at Pineview Chevrolet in Macclenny.
"It's probably cut my business in half," he said shortly after Con-
gress approved the bailout last week. "The banks, with the credit
situation, are just not lending."
Just about every automobile manufacturer reported significant
drops in September sales. Ford sunk 34.5 percent, Toyota was down
32 percent, Honda reported a 24 percent slump, and GM saw a
slightly smaller decline at 17 percent, which was mainly due to its
employee-pricing sale.
But now that the sale event is over, Pineview is being hit even
harder.
"This is the third day and I haven't had one person come on my
lot," Mr. Dees said of interest since the sale ended September 30.
Mr. Dees had already laid-off one employee and said more will
likely follow.
"You lay people off, skim and cut corners," he said. "That's all
you can do."
Not everyone is feeling as much pressure though.
Another downtown auto dealer, Danny Lamb, sells used vehicles
and said lower price tags have made the impact of the credit crisis
much softer.
'J "We're doing pretty
S good," he said. "I'm glad
USEDv E I'm not a new car deal-
. er."
SLike everyone else,
: Mr. Lamb finances his
vehicles through banks,
Sbut smaller loans and his
S, .._ long-time dealings with
lenders has helped, he
.believes.
"We have really good
relationships with our
lenders," said Mr. Lamb.
"Some of them we've
been doing business with
for over 20 years."
Mobile home dealers
S have also seen slacking
sales as it becomes more
difficult to get financ-
.. ing.
Ss "We are feeling it,"
.le tog.. said Roger Morgan,
_sales manager at Wayne
Pineview Chevrolet sales manager Mike Dees
said the credit crisis had cut sales at the dealer-
ship in half. PHO BY JOEL ADDINGTON (See page 2)

go by and see each other." And
since both were good Christians,
they refused to live together un-
til they married.
Billie Jordan, who retired
from Northeast Florida State
Hospital after 32 years, will be
remembered for her kindness
and friendliness.
"She wasn't like no other
mama," Mr. Rotenberry said. "If
you didn't know her, you were
going to get to know her."
Mr. Collingwood echoed
those sentiments about his gran-
ny.
"She loved everyone, even if
they didn't like her," he said.
'James Jordan, a retired state
road department worker of 35
years, was well-known for his
sense of humor.
"He was a character," said
Mr. Rotenberry's wife Wendi.
"He was a comedian," Mr.
Rotenberry added. "He was a
heart patient, but no matter how
bad he felt, he'd try to put on
smile on your face."
James Jordan's son Ira, known
to friends and family as Johnny,
was described as a one-of-a-kind
man who enjoyed workingwith
automobiles.
"Put him on a motor and he'd
have it running in no time," Mr.
Collingwood said of his uncle.
A news story about the fire
said that Ira Jordan was men-
tally handicapped. "He wasn't
mentally anything," said Mr.
Rotenberry. "He was just slow."
Ira Jordan was also very pro-
tective of his family and accom-
panied Billie Jordan most any-
where she went.
"He was like a shadow, fol-
lowing her around to make sure
nothing would happen to her,"
Mr. Rotenberry said of his step-
brother, who was usually quiet
when he first met someone.
"But once he got to know


you, he wouldn't shut up," said
Mr. Rotenberry.
The fire also took the lives
of the family's two Chihuahuas,
two-month old Bear and one-
year-old Rooster.
The blaze was started by an
electrical failure in the living
room, said state fire marshal
spokesman Andy Redding, He
said that the amount of damage
in the immediate area around
the TV, VCR, clock and other
electronics plugged into an out-
let strip led to that assumption.
There were also no smoke
alarms in the residence at 8243
Brown Rd.

Two probation sentences
totaling 18 months were giv-

he pleaded guilty to reduced

Judge Rosier set a $100,000

court. She is charged with at-

about plummeting sales else-
where. "It's definitely not a very
comfortable time right now.
Thank God we haven't had to
borrow or lay people off. We're
hanging in there."

In other developments from
the Baker County School
Board's regular meeting October
6, it approved an amended
school concurrency plan. The
county commission approved a
plan that allows developments
to request an extension if an out-
side agency causes them to miss
the Sept. 30, 2010 deadline for a
final plat. The deadline itself did
not change.
The plan will now go
before the Macclenny City
Commission.
The board was also presented
with, and approved, the 2007-08
annual school health services
plan.


Health Services Specialist
Marcheta Crews reported to the
board that 1500 students were
attended to by school nurses
over the course of the year. Each
nurse every school has one
- had an average of 50 visits
per day.
Some of the visits were by
the same students, because the
district has a high rate of stu-
dents with health conditions. Of
the 5000 students in the district,
almost one quarter have con-
ditions such as ADD/ADHD,
allergies and asthma.
The board also approved
salary schedules for the Baker
County Education Association
and Baker County Related
Personnel Association; the
employees' bargaining unions.
The BCEA schedule includ-
ed raises ranging from $170 to
$5,910. Bonuses ranged from
$100 to $800.
Superintendent Paula Barton
said funds have been lower than
ever before, but that the nego-
tiations led to monetary rewards
for employees, while remaining
financially solvent.
"[It's] quite an accomplish-
ment," Ms. Barton said.

Dear Editor:
After three and a half years running a business in downtown Mac-
clenny, 1 am saddened to say that our shop has been victimized. The
Ivy Cottage has always been a ministry within itself, willing to help
when others were in need and at the same time offering beautiful gifts
at affordable prices.
October 2 was no different from any other day. We were enjoying
Sour customers, who make everything we do worthwhile. Many take
the time to just come by and say hello. But on this day, when the store
was empty and things got quiet, we realized that merchandise was
missing. Someone took advantage of our kindness.
They are not welcome back in our shop because I am protective of
both the shop and the customers who have been so supportive of my
business.
The Ivy Cottage will recover, but until those certain folks are
stopped, each smile they give and every word they speak is deception
to get what they want.
If anyone knows or has heard anything about the theft of our mer-
chandise, please contact the Baker County Sheriff's Office. We would
sincerely appreciate the information.

Beloved fairy tales


short on'happy ends'


Considering realities

You never know what's going M Y SI
to trigger a column idea. I was
S watching television the other
night and a commercial came THE A/ TTER
on. Disney was hawking a newly v A I
digitized and re-mastered ver- ROBERT GERARD
sion of Sleeping Beauty. They
showed how much clearer the
cells were and how much more colorful.
There was the handsome prince, who had just hacked through
thorny vines and battled a witch in the shape of a dragon to get to
. Sleeping Beauty. He bends over the lovely girl and kisses her on the
mouth. She opens her eyes and flashes him a beautiful smile.
It got me thinking about how unrealistic fairy tales and fables re-
ally are. I'm not the first one to have that idea. Poet Adrianne Rich
wrote a scathing series of poems on Cinderella. One of my favorite
children's books is about the real story of the Big Bad Wolf and James
Gardner's Politically Correct Fairy Tales are wonderful. Nonetheless,
here are a few of my own takes on Sleeping Beauty and other such
fables.
SI guess I'm happy for Sleeping Beauty, but I'm not so sure about
S the prince. He might be getting a raw deal. She's beautiful all right,
but think about the morning breath!! I think he might have recoiled
more in horror from the first whiff of that then he did when he first
caught sight of the dragon. His first words to her would probably have
been, "Tic Tac?"
He's got another problem that he probably hasn't considered. It's
going to be a while before "happily ever after" is a reality because this
is a girl with one seriously messed-up sleep cycle. The prince comes
home to the castle after a hard day of cleaving helmets and charging
battlements and all she wants to do is sit up all night watching old
-episodes of the A Team and buying baubles on the Home Shopping
Network.
I have some problems with Snow White as well. Okay, it's clear
that Snow was mentally abused as a child by her stepmother. But
should she go from one dangerous situation into another? Isn't there
some federal agency that could get her somrr help in this kingdom?
I mean, really?
This teenage girl's stepmother tries to poison her and she runs
off into the forest and lives with seven dwarves. The Feds swooped
down on that polygamist sect in Texas; somebody really should have
phoned this in.
Who are these dwarves anyway and why are they all living in
one house? Are they related? They don't look alike. They're living in
squalor and having to care for a special needs child whom they heart-
lessly call "Dopey." She's moving from one bad situation into another;
no wonder she jumps at the first prince who happens to ride by.
Don't look for happily ever after here. These things never work out
the way you want them to. Pretty soon she'll be just one more guest
on the Jerry Springer Show.
Then there's her cousin Cinderella. I'm concerned that there is a
climate of abuse in this kingdom that is being swept under the rug.
They need some "Change You Can Believe In" or "A Couple of Mav-
ericks" to sweep into office and shake things up in Fairytale Land.
Yet another young girl is suffering mental and physical abuse and
is ready to run off with the first guy who happens by. She and Snow
could be on Springer together.
It is also not very easy for the stepsisters, either. In the actual
Grimm's tale, one chops off her toes and the other her heel to fit the
glass slipper. It is obviously very tough to be a female adolescent in
Fairytaleland.
Then .there's the Three Little Pigs. I guess all these fairy tale crea-
tures live in a lawless country without any building codes. A good
building inspector would never let this house of sticks fly. If a wolf
can huff and puff and blow it down, think what Tropical Storm Fay is
going to accomplish when she rolls through.
As for the house of bricks, what do these pigs do for a living that
they think they can afford this expansive mansion? Don't they re-
alize that there is a credit crisis in this country and that they have
spent above their means and are about to be yet another victim of the
sub-prime mortgage fiasco? I'm just hoping that they don't have their
401Ks invested in Lehman Brothers or they're in for a lot longer term
problems than a simple wolf.
I guess I need to take a surface reading of these fairy tales like
most children do. A deeper examination of the text reveals some pret-
ty scary undercurrents in Fairytale Land.

Mc Cain,' GOP wi// get blamed


It's getting down to the wire in the race for presi-
dent and the economy is looking more and more
like a giant club perfect for bashing Republican
seals.


Rightly or not, the blame for this
mess will be placed at the doorstep I
of the Grand Old Party, which O N 1
has held the White House for two
terms and controlled Congress for I f
six of the last eight years.1
There's probably enough blame JOELAD
to go around, but far more people J
are reaching into empty pockets
these days, and they're looking at the leadership for
answers.
Bank closures, shrinking credit, record deficits,
record spending, high gas prices. All of these have
occurred on a Republican watch.
People are not complicated. They may not fully
understand all the details of these problems, but
they do know which party has been telling them
everything's alright.
It makes me think of the -wizard of Oz: Pay no
attention to the man behind the curtain.
I know McCain has been saying he will change
Washington and take on his party for the better-
ment of the nation. But that's hard to believe, given
he's been there so long and surrounds himself with
some of Capitol Hill's most influential insiders.
I'm talking about McCain campaign manag-
ers Rick Davis, who is on leave
from his Washington lobbying
firm, and Steve Schmidt, who is STATEM
a protege of Karl Rove, the ar-
chitect of the Bush administra- Titl
tion. Publihing i
When the Democrats took 20.00anua
$ r20.00 anuam
control'of Congress in 2006,
people said it was a referendum $35.00
on the war in Iraq. If they win Complec ni.i
the White House in November, P.O
I'm sure it will be framed as a
referendum on the economy.

Florida.
It's certainly Obama's race to
lose.
oINT First, his opponents used scare
tactics by saying he was weak on
INT national security and possibly a
1 Muslim. When that didn't work,
INGTON they said he was inexperienced
INGON and couldn't be trusted to make the
big decisions. Next he was going to
raise taxes and cripple the economy.
In actuality, Obama only wants to raise taxes for
soie like oil companies with record profits and
individuals earning more than $250,000 a year.-
Contrary to the McCain-Palin mantra, Obama's
plan is to.cut taxes for those in the middle class
like me, and probably most of you.
Now that none of those attacks has hurt Obama's
chances, and the economy and McCain's dismal
understanding of it has grabbed headlines, I'm sure
the McCain campaign is looking around the office
right now for a kitchen sink.
They really have nothing left. If the worst dirt
they can dig up on Obama is that he knows Bill Ay-
ers, a professor and former member of the Weath-
ermen, the Republicans have a tough road ahead.

Value adjustment board denies petitions



from property owners to lower tax bills


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
None of the eight property owners who
petitioned the Value Adjustment Board for
reductions on their 2007 tax bills got such
relief during hearings held October 2.
The board made up of two county com-
missioners, a school board member, business
owner and taxpayer sided with Property
Appraiser Tim Sweat in each instance; how-
ever, only two petitioners actually showed up
to argue their cases.
Four petitioners were late filing for, or re-
newing, a commercial.agriculture classifica-
tion from the appraiser that allows a substan-
tial tax break.
The classification is commonly referred
to as a "green belt," which must be renewed
each year by filling out and returning to the
appraiser's office a small green card.
That's something that Noel Road property
owner Eugenio Cruz didn't do by the March
1 deadline, as he had done for the previous
two years. He was the only green belt peti-
tioner present at the hearings last week.
"Last year I paid $153 [in taxes]," said the
Atlantic Beach resident who purchased his
Margaretta property in 2004. "Now they're
$1600."
Mr. Cruz is building a home on the land
and said he didn't receive the green card re-
newal at his home address.
"Can I get a little break until I finish my


house?" he asked the board.
Mr. Sweat said Mr. Cruz eventually did
conic to his office and file a late 'application
to get his green belt, which was denied for a
lack of "extenuating circumstances."
The board had no sympathy either.
"Filing the green belt card is an impor-
tant thing," said Paul Raulerson of the school
board. The other Value Adjustment Board
members agreed and the vote was unani-
mous to deny Mr. Cruz's petition.
"You'll be seeing me at a lot more county
commission meetings," said Mr. Cruz.
Angela Bates' Trips Way property south
of Glen St. Mary was also denied a green
belt classification along with two lots owned
by World Eximport Properties Inc. north of
Folsum Trail, and John Steinmeyer's land in
Old Nursery Plantation.
All were either late in filing or late renew-
ing their green belt classifications.
Two other cases weren't even heard by the
adjustment board because the petitions to ap-.
pear were filed late with the clerk of court.
Montgomery Land Co. developer of
the Sands Pointe subdivision off CR 23A
north of Macclenny filed its petition one
day after the deadline.
A company engineer, Maurice Rudolph,
was present to request a hearing to dispute
the appraiser's valuation of 101 Sands Pointe
lots.
Mr. Randolph said a slump in the housing


market led to staff layoffs, including an at-
torney who would've normally appeared at
the hearing and filed the petition, presum-
ably on time.
"It Ithe petitions fell through the cracks,"
said Mr. Rudolph. "This is not typically how
we do business. Please listen to our case."
However, the board voted unanimously to
deny that request.
"If somebody quits or leaves, somebody
has to pick up the slack," said Jack Baker, the
board's business owner.
A case involving the property at 321 S. 1st
St. owned by Asberry-Hardin Living Trust
was also late in filing its petition and was not
heard by the board.
No one showed up to represent Seda Con-
struction Co. of Jacksonville, which had pur-
chased lots from.Montgomery Land in the
Sands Pointe subdivision.
Seda filed its petition on time to dispute
the appraiser's $37,500 valuation on its lots.
Mr. Sweat defended the valuation by say-
ing it was based on prices for 24 lots sold in
Sands Pointe in 2005, which were the most
recent ones sold.
The prices ranged from $42,000 to
$56,000, but averaged about $49,000.
The board sided with Mr. Sweat in that
case, too.
The board's attorney, Russell Wade of
Lake Butler, said decisions of the board can
be challenged in court.

Slowdown has a bright side:


More timefor the states planning mandates


and learning the deck forfi ture development


BY JOEb ADDINGTON
Press Staff
For the Baker County planning department, the
nose-diving real estate market has meant relief from
growth pressures that a few years ago had employ-
ees up to their eyeballs in development plans.
Planning Director Ed Preston, who has been
with the county since January 2006, said that al-
though the downturn has been bad for everyone, it
has also given his office some breathing room to,
well, plan for the future.
"When I got here, we were processing the Cedar
Creek development, we also had an application par-
tially processed for Navona Creek although that
dried up and went away' and we had probably
four times as many large-scale comprehensive plan
amendments in 2006 and 2007," said Mr. Preston.
Today, most projects have been put on hold, and
instead of spending his time reviewing new subdi-
visions, Mr. Preston is working to unclog a back-up
of three comprehensive plan amendments that have
stalled with the Department of Community Affairs
(DCA) in Tallahassee.
The comprehensive plan is the governing docu-
ment for development throughout the county and
all changes to it must gain DCA's approval.
Two of the stalled amendments would rezone
,property west of Sanderson and east of Macclenny
for industrial park projects that could create 9000
new jobs within the next five years. The other
amendment pertains to a development strategy for
the county's core area around Macclenny, Glen St.
Mary and Sanderson.
The highlight of the latter amendment is a
growth boundary encompassed by a proposed four-
lane loop road. Inside the loop will generally be
the area located south of Tim Crews Road, north of
Mud Lake Road, east of the Osceola National For-
est and west of the Baker County line.
A more urban-style of development will-be en-
couraged inside the boundary due to expected ex-
pansion of water and sewer utilities, while more
rural areas outside the boundary will be protected.
However, DCA wouldn't consider those amend-
ments until the county completed its Evaluation
and Appraisal Report (EAR) required every five
years as the first step in a multi-year comprehen-
sive plan updating process. The county was noti-
fied last month that the state approved report and
the amendments can now be processed.
"It was huge," Mr. Preston said of the accom-
plishment. "We did that thing in 25 percent of the
time they recommend doing it. We busted that
thing out to catch up."
The report's completion is one of a few goals
Mr. Preston has been working toward to "clear the
deck for things to come."


The state is also mandating school and trans-
portation concurrency, which aims to establish a
mechanism by which developers pay up front to
offset impacts on local roads and classrooms from
their projects.
Previous methods of accomplishing this like
charging impact fees have often fallen short in
generating enough money to build adequate capac-
ity by the time it's needed.
However, implementing concurrency is easier
said than done.
Language in a school concurrency agreement
that had gained approval from the governing boards
of the City of Macclenny, the school district and
the Town of Glen St. Mary was recently changed
by county commissioners and now must go back to
the other boards for their re-approval.
"It's the most nit-picky stuff you can imagine,"
Mr. Preston said of concurrency, something else
keeping him busy as development has slowed.
Concurrency involves accurately predicting a
development's impact down to the number of trips
on a road or the number of desks in a classroom,
coming up with a system by which the developer
can pay a dollar amount to mitigate the impact, and
doing it all in a way that can withstand legal chal-
lenges by developers.
County planners are also working on an agree-
ment with the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion (FDOT) that will give Baker County a traffic
variance on 1-10 and make the area more attractive
for industrial development that cbuld bring thou-
sands of new jobs to the area.
In return for the variance, FDOT has asked the
county to meet a number of conditions, including
the identification of road projects to relieve traffic
on the interstate, both in the short- and long-term.
Within the next 10 years, for instance, FDOT
wants the county to pave Barber Road to connect
CR 228 and SR 121, opening an alternative route
to 1-10.
That project could be funded through increased
tax revenues from the jobs the interstate variance
would create during the next few years.
But, FDOT also wants the county to include
transportation projects in a five-year capital im-
provement plan, which means identifying a fund-
ing source for design, right-of-way acquisition, en-
gineering and construction for each road segment
in the plan.
"They'd like to see the county commit to build-
ing east-west roads with the same function as I-10,"
said Mr. Preston, adding that although road seg-
ments for the capital improvement plan haven't
been identified, they'll likely be in the eastern part
of the county as most of the traffic is going back
and forth from Baker to Duval counties.

Glen man tasered afier resisting deputy


and ramming his truck into phone pole


A 22-year-old man was
shocked with a Taser gun after
screaming and kicking inside an
officer's patrol vehicle and re-
sisting attempts to restrain him
October 3.
Deputy Christopher Walker
came into contact with suspect
Kyle Baumgardner of Glen St.
Mary while responding to a bur-
glary, in progress on O.C. Home
Road about 3:00 am.
'A disoriented Mr. Baumgard-
ner was sitting in front of the
residence at 12347 O.C. Horne
Rd. when the deputy arrived and
was soon handcuffed and placed
in the patrol unit. The women
who reported the burglary told
the deputy that Mr. Baumgard,
ner had broken in and passed out
inside. She didn't wish to pursue
charges, however.
While en route to the burglary
call, Deputy Walker passed an
accident on O.C. Horne Rd.,
which he returned to after the
suspect said he wrecked his ve-
hicle at an unknown location.
At the accident scene was a
Ford pickup that had crashed
into a telephone pole. The truck
was registered to Mr. Baum-
gardner.
While Deputy Walker waited
for dispatchers to contact the
power company, Mr. Baum-
gardner began to yell and kick
the glass barrier and door of the
squqd car. When given orders
to stop, the suspect refused and
tried to get his handcuffs from
behind his back.
That's when the officer deliv-
ered two short touch shocks to
the suspects lower legs and up-
per arm. He was then taken to
jail, cleared by rescue and cited
for reckless driving.
Another man, this one a 45-
year-old from Sanderson, re-
sisted Deputy Walker's efforts
to place him in the back of a
patrol vehicle the following day,
and was "knee spiked" in order
to do so.
That incident began when the
officer was on patrol in the area
of Friendship Place and the 229


Club and saw two black males
run from a pickup truck driven
by John Childs.
Deputy Walker pulled the
truck over and.questioned Mr.
Childs about his reason for be-
ing in an high drug area and
why the two men ran from his
truck. The suspect first said he
was at the club to buy a chicken
and later said he was looking for
a friend.
Nonetheless, a check with
dispatch showed Mr. Childs' li-
cense had been twice suspended
for failure to pay traffic fines.
When told he was being arrested
for the offense, Mr. Childs began
yelling obscenities at the officer
and pinned himself between the
patrol vehicle's door and door
frame.
"A knee spike was delivered
to the left leg of John Childs to
make him sit down in my vehi-
cle," reads the deputy's report.
The suspect continued to be
disruptive while being taken to
county jail and opted not to be
examined-by rescue.
Two others were arrested
this week for driving on a sus-
pended license.
Josh Davis, 27, of Macclenny
was seen driving in circles at a
high rate of speed about 11:15
pm October 3 in the 229 Club
parking lot. He was stopped
by Deputy Walker and found
to have a license suspended 10
times.
Andrew Johnson, 22, of Glen
St. Mary was pulled over at the
Citgo gas station on CR 125 by
Deputy Walker the afternoon of
September 30 because a wire
was obstructing the view of the


tag on his truck. A check of his
name and birth date turned up a
license suspended five times. He
was issued a warning for the tag
obstruction.
A cracked windshield led
Deputy Michael Hagel to stop
Joe Levister, 24, of Macclenny
on US 90 near SR 121. A check
with dispatch showed he did not
have a Florida drivers license.
He was arrested for driving with-
out a license and given a citation
for the broken windshield about
1:30 pm September 30.
David Zipperer, 18, of Glen
St. Mary was also arrested for
driving without a license after
driving his stepfather's untagged
and uninsured vehicle into a
ditch on Crews Road about 12:30
am October 5. The incident fol-
lowed an argument between the
two men.

More than $5600 in property stolen


in burglaries and thefts this past week


A north Sanderson resident
returned home to find more
than $3600 of personal property
missing from her house and shed
at 10566 Jonny Harvey Rd. the
evening of September 29.
Among the items stolen from
Chana Himle were appliances, a
children's four-wheeler, TV, rid-
ing lawn mower, stereos, gold
chain, car keys, cell phone and
socket set.
The victim reported the home
was locked when she left about
1:00 pm September 27. No signs
of forced entry were apparent
and a neighbor in the only oc-
cupied residence nearby said she
didn't notice anything during the
time of the burglary.
Ms. Himle also said her wel-
fare card had been stolen twice
previously and used in Mac-
clenny.
The next day, Alfred Johnson,
the owner of New Wave Heating
and Air, reported that his storage
unit at American Storage, 9755
S. SR 121, was burglarized.
The victim said more than
$2000 worth of supplies like
copper wiring, freon and ther-
mostats were taken from the unit
sometime overnight September
29-30.
Mr. Johnson arrived about
7:00 am to find the lock on the
unit pried open and the sliding
door halfway up.
He named a fired employee
as a possible suspect as well as
several others, all of whom were
interviewed and denied involve-
ment in the burglary.
In other thefts reported this
past week:
Clayton Williams, 18, of
Macclenny was arrested for
grand theft auto September 29
after admitting to taking Troy
McCullough's Cadillac for a joy
ride with three other teenage
males.
Mr. McCullough gave Mr.
Williams a place to live due to
family problems and was away
!J


from his home at 3717 Raintree
Dr. for a hunting trip when the
theft occurred. -
The suspect initially told the
.victim.it was Matthew Mar-
tin, also 18 and of Macclenny,
who took the car for a ride. But
subsequent interviews with Mr.
Martin and others in the vehicle
by Deputy Christopher Walker
revealed that Mr. Williams re-
trieved the keys and asked if
anyone wanted to go for a ride.
He later admitted to the crime.
About $70 in store merchan-
dise was taken from Ivy Cottage
at 28 W. Macclenny Ave. Oc-
tober 2. The theft was reported


about 4:30 pm by owner.Kath-
leen Arnold, who said she was
the only one working as sev-
eral customers in the store were
walking around during the time
of the thefts.

and I wanted
something to
wear to a fall
festival which would make me
easily identifiable to them at
all times," said Ms. DeWolfe.
'"When I found the costume, I
knew it was just the thing."
After relocating to Mac-
denny, Ms. DeWolfe joined the
First United Methodist Church
and soon became involved in the
many activities sponsored by the
congregation.
"Practically everyone in the
church is involved in some way
with The Pumpkin Patch," said
Ms. DeWolfe. "When I was
asked to go along to the elemen-
tary school to help with story-
'telling, I let them know I had
this costume."
SMs. Pumpkin made her sto-
ry-telling debut at Westside El-
ementary. Today, she is a fixture
at The Pumpkin Patch lot.

Being a church-sponsored
event, the stories all convey a
moral lesson. Ms. DeWolfe's fa-
vorite story she shares with the
kids employs the use of a group
of pumpkins that are painted
different colors.
One little pumpkin wants to
be accepted so badly he is will-
ing to become what he thinks
others expect him to be by
changing his colors. In the end,
he realizes it's perfectly alright
to be orange just the way God
made him.

Wolfe.
Ms. DeWolfe loves her role

Taylor selected as '08-09


top teacher by Walmart

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Quentin Taylor, a reading coach at Keller Intermediate School, has
been named Walmart Distribution Center's Teacher of the Year for
2008-09. Mr. Taylor is also Keller's current teacher of the year.
Kelsey Griffin, Human Resource Manager for the distribution cen-
ter, spoke at the Keller Media Center October 1 and presented Mr.
Taylor with a $100 gift card.
Because of Mr. Taylor's selection, the school also received a check
for $1000 that he will use to renew an online FCAT preparatory pro-
gram called Study Island. Students can access the program from
home computers as well as from the classroom.
Teachers are nominated in each community and selected by a com-
mittee of Walmart Store or Sam's Club's associates. Nominees at the
local level have the opportunity to apply for state teacher of the year
making their school eligible for a $10,000 grant. The national winner
qualifies for a $25,000 education grant.
"We received twenty nomination forms this year for the local
award," said Mr. Griffin. "Fifty percent of those were for Mr. Tay-
lor."
Mr. Griffin enthusiastically shared excerpts of some of the com-
ments about Mr. Taylor written by teachers and parents:
... He makes learning fun and never settles for less than what he
believes a student is capable of..
... He is concerned about the welfare of the entire school ...
... Mr. Taylor goes above and beyond the call of duty ...
... I think he is the student's unsung hero ...
...He has a passion for learning, especially reading ...
"This is an auspicious day," said Mr. Griffin. "We recognize the
amazing things you do with your limited resources here at Keller In-
termediate and we commend you for it. It's our pleasure to present
Mr. Taylor and the school with this award."
Since the program began in 1995, Walmart Stores Inc. has honored
more then 25,000 teachers nationwide.

"In Loving Memory"
of
Mitchell "Bo"
Wynn Green
5/10/72-10/10/07
All that's left are memories of
Bo gone so soon, how could
we know? Jacob was thirteen,
Reece just six and Bailey only
seven. How do you say Daddy's
in Heaven?
Our hearts will never be the
same, if only we knew where to
put the blame.
A lot ofpotential, laughter and
so strong. Bo, your passing
feels so wrong.
Forever so sad I just can't let
go, because all that's left are
memories of Bo.
WE'LL LOVE AND MISS YOU ALWAYS,
"JJ.", JACQUELINE, JACOB,
BAILEY AND REECE

Family thankful
It is with great pride that we
take this -opportunity to thank
the Baker County community
for the great outpouring of love
that has been shown to us during
the illness and ultimate passing
of our loved one, the late Mrs.
Ruby Lee Roberts.
Words cannot adequately
express how your kindness and
supporthas helped strengthen us
during this hour of sorrow. Our
family wants you to know that
we love you, and we praise God
for you.
A special thanks to our sher-
iff Joey Dobson and the Baker
County Sheriff's Department.
THE ROBERTS, HAWKINS,
WRIGHT AND GIBBs FAMILIES


In appreciation
Patricia A. McGlashan's two
sons and families once again say'
a very humble "God Bless" each
one of you for your prayers,
kind love and humble words of
encouragement. Thanks for the
serving of food, flowers and the
help taking care of our mother.
Thanks to our church and
church families for holding us
up in prayers to God through
Jesus Christ without whom we
would not have been able to en-
dure the difficulties that come
with these tender moments of
our loved ones as they pushed
on to win Heaven.
"O Death, where is thy sting;
O Grave where is thy victory?" I
thank God through Jesus Christ
we have the victory of everlast-
ing life through the Blood of Je-
sus.
Until we meet again on Heav-
en's shores. Are you ready for the
next world to come? Get ready!
Jesus loves you all. Amen.

.. The Baker High Wildcats
Remained undefeated with a
22-0 shutout of the Ridgeview
Panthers on Friday in St. Johns
County. The win sets up a loom-
ing battle of undefeated teams
this Friday at Memorial Stadium
when BCHS tackles the Jack-
son Tigers in what could be the
deciding game for the district
crown and a place in the play-
offs.
Once again, the Wildcat
defense rose to the occasion,
Holding Ridgeview's potent of-
fense that had been averaging 35
points a game to just 30 yards of
total offense.
The Wildcats.on the other
hand rushed for more than 300
yards that night. They contin-
.ued to spread around the carries
between Rueben Jackson, Greg
'Williams, Harold Moore and
Hank Farmer as "well as a hand-
ful of other running backs.
Defensively, the Panthers
held their own for two quarters.
BCHS had only an 8-0 lead at
the half and Ridgeview was


definitely within striking dis-
tance. But talented quarterback
Derek Hatcher could not find
a way around, over or through
the Wildcat defense. He was ha-
rassed and intercepted all night
long and his running backs had
-31 yards rushing. Harold Moore
and Greg Williams both had in-
terceptions to snuff drives.
The lone score of the half
came on a 70-yard drive high-
lighted by a 38-yard scamper by
fullback Jackson. The drive was
also juiced by a 15-yard face
mask penalty that put the ball
inside the Panther 20. Two plays
later, Darvin Ruise snuck in for
the score. Harold Moore added
the two-point conversion.
If their offensive woes weren't
bad enough, it got worse for the
Panthers. They clearly were not
as well conditioned as Bobby
Johns' Cats and as the game pro-
gressed they got tired and lost
their intensity. BCHS began to
control the line of scrimmage'in
the second half and push around
the-Panther defenders.


Unbeaten Wildcats to take on


Tigers in district titlepreview

1 The BCHS Wildcats will the game into perspective. "
-play one of the most compelling we don't win our season is n
games in recent memory as they over, but if we win Friday nig
host the seventh ranked Jackson we are where we need to be."
Tigers Friday night at Memorial He added what could be tl
:Stadium. The Cats face a team most concise and accurate a
;that is loaded offensively and de- sessment of the Cats' chance
fensively, and full of Division 1 "It's time for us to find out
.prospects. we're a good football team."
''The Cats are'5-'0, with four
shutouts under their belt and a
lot of confidence. They come off
*a 22-0 win over Ridgeview on
-the road and are well aware the
task at hand.
"I don't think anybody Jack-
son has left can beat them,"
'said Coach Bobby Johns on his
'weekly coach's show. "It's us or
nobody."
SThe Wildcats lost to Jackson
last year when the Tigers broke
,.pen a close game by intercept-
ing a Carlos Holton pass and
running it back for a score. Johns
knows that his team will have to
'avoid those kind of miscues to
secure a win.
" "We know what we have to
'do. We have to gain four yards a
"lay with no turnovers and pen- H o m
alties."
The game could and should
determine the winner of the dis-
trict title. With Raines winless
so far, Suwannee 2-2 and Kenny
,already losing big to the Tigers,
Johns wasn't far off in his assess-
ment that "it's us or nobody."
Coach Kevin Sullivan has
:good athletes at his disposal. ave a
His quarterbacks Cory Addison
and Nigel Mitchell can throw'
the ball and run well. They drop.
,deep in the pocket and if chal- 'O u r
lenged, won't hesitate to pull the
,ball down and sprint for the cor-
,ners. Chris Campbell lHad 135
'yards rushing this past week in
:a win over Forrest.
The Tigers haven't really been
challenged this season. Forrest
-held them.blose in the first half,
but Jackson asserted itself in the
second half, much as BCHS did
with the Ridgeview Panthers. p p
SThe Tigers will line up in a 4-
4 defense and their athletic line-
,backers will try to force the Cat
running backs into the middle J
and keep them from turning the
corner and making good yard-
,age. _,- ,
It should be an exciting game Th ursd
with power matching up against
power. Coach Johns probably put

Early in the half, BCHS had
one of its most impressive drives
of the season. Pinned back close
to his own endzone, Ruise en-
gineered a 95-yard touchdown
drive. He got breathing room
out to the 18 yard line. Moore,
Farmer and Jackson moved the
ball well and ground out yard
after yard, culminating in a 25-
yard end around to Moore for the
score. Ruise ran in the conver-
sion attempt to put BCHS up 16-
0. Defensively, BCHS continued
to baffle Hatcher and company.
Hatcher was harassed, sacked
and hurried throughout the sec-
ond half. The defensive backs
covered the receivers tightly and
Hatcher had nowhere to go.
"I don't care how good a
quarterback you are," said Johns.
"You can't do much if you're on
your back."
One of the highlights of the


second half was a bruising 45-
yard run by Greg Williams. He
just would not go down as he
shed tacklers like a snake sheds
its skin. The Cats gave the ball
up on the 5-yard line but the
Panthers gave it back and Hank
Farmer scored from three yards
out. The conversion was no good
but the Cats were up 22-0.
Baker High dominated offen-
sively with Jackson leading the
way with 91 yards on 11 carries.
Williams had 79 yards on eight
rushes.
The lack of a 100-yard rusher
was an indication of how the
Wildcats spread around the ball
carrying duties.
The.win was the 20th of
Bobby Johns' two-plus years at
BCHS.
The Cats will host Jackson at
7:30 pm on Friday.

Win against Cougars


pushes Bobcats to 4-0
BY JOEL AI)I)INGTON
Press Stlff
By toppling Green Cove Springs last week 56-14, the Baker County
Middle School's Bobcats captured their division and will move onto
the playoffs.
This is the second year in a row the football team, now 4-0, has
taken the division. It will host the first round of the playoffs October
21.
The victory against the Cougars started with a Falon Lee touch-
down on a sweep that Cory Lawler followed up with a two-point con-
version to give the Bobcats an 8-0 lead in the first quarter.
Lee, Mike Boone and Trey Mosley added three more touchdowns
by halftime, and Mosley tacked on two more conversions to make the
Green Cove deficit 28 points.
In the third quarter, Mosely broke away on the second-half kickoff
and ran the ball for a 50-yard return. That set up Lee's third touch-
down of the game for a 34-0 lead. Darius Greene pushed the lead to
40 points by scoring on a dive play.
Then Lawler got two more points on a quarterback sneak.
Green Cove Springs finally got on the board with a sweep to make
it 42-6, which was soon followed by Lee's fourth touchdown.
The Cougars got another score in the fourth quarter before Lawler
struck again, this time with a quarterback bootleg, making the final
score 56-14.

S Anticipation building for deer hunting
Local hunters are watching the calendar a lot more closely these days. Piqued
by the fact that the South Carolina deer season is over a month old and hunting
there has been good, area hunters who haven't ventured up to the Palmetto
State await the Florida and Georgia seasons. Deer populations are reported to
be healthy and good harvests are predicted, especially after the weather begins
to change to autumn conditions.
First up is archery, which began Sept. 13 throughout Georgia and opened September 20 in Florida's
central zone. Archers traveling to Florida's south zone began hunting on Sept. 6, while those who hunt the
Northwest zone have to wait until Oct. 18.
Camp Blanding permit holders note changes. Due to scheduled military training, the FWC has been forced
to change the dates of some hunts scheduled at Camp Blanding this deer season. Holders of the 350 permits
issued for the first archery hunt are most immediately affected. Originally slated for Sept. 23-25, the hunt was
moved to Sept. 25-28 and extended from three days to four. Permit holders are being notified by mail. The
Sept. 30- Oct. 2 second archery hunt was not changed, but several subsequent hunts were.
Since the scheduling of military training is sometimes unpredictable, all hunt dates on this military facility
are subject to change. Hunters can stay informed by calling the Camp Blanding hunter hotline at (904) 291-
9912 or the FWC regional office in Lake City at (386) 758-0525.
Jury still out on deer and soybeans in our area
"I mixed soybeans with the corn in my gravity feeders and'the deer picked through the corn to get at the
soybeans" said Scott Davis, president of our little club south of Sanderson. I have no doubt that Scott be-
lieved this to be true, but the deer that pick through.his corn haven't found my
feeders.
The two bucks pictured here were captured by one of my
game cameras last spring. The captions depict the actual con-
versation that they were having when the image was taken.
Honest.
On Scott's recommendation, I had rushed out and spent
Nopel nearly $30 on a bag of the "wonder beans" last fall. I've blown
I don't that much money often, but never with as much consequen-
trust those tial heartbreak. A couple of pounds were scattered among
trust iVe the freshly fallen acorns of an oak tree that had several deer
rid this non-native feeding under it daily. That couple of pounds was still there
fiellow'S food a week later.
fellow's sources. OK, maybe those acorns were exceptionally good.
soybeans I had some deer coming to corn in an unplanted food
Syet? plot. A small pile of soybeans was placed five yards from an
identical pile of corn in that plot. The next day there was no
Scorn there but the beans appeared to have multiplied. They
remained untouched until some of them actually germinated and began to grow. The
tender new plants never inspired as much as a curious nibble.
About a week before Tropical Storm Fay passed by last month, most of the remaining folly beans were
planted in the same food plot. I guess it was just as well that Fay drowned them just as they were beginning
to sprout from the ground. Deer traffic began to wane there. I don't know why.
D.C. Rivers, who maintains a remarkably successful lease off of Clete Harvey south of Sanderson, reports
a similar soybean experience. After years of maintaining food plots and feeders that produced and retained
quality deer like the 180 lb+ ten-point pictured here, he planted a quarter acre of the high protein duds. Not
only did his deer not touch them, they almost stopped traveling through the plot where they were!
Last week I decided to give it one last shot with the remaining one pound of my albatross beans. The bucks
pictured at the feeder here consistently eat about five pounds of "C'mere Deer" treated corn every night. One
pound of "C'mere Deer" treated jack's magic beans has gone ignored under that feeder for eight days now.
Scott, you can come pick through my corn for some soybeans if you'd like.
For free.
