Patrons visiting the Emily Taber Library liext to the historical so-
ciety, as well as passers-by on McIver Street cast curious glanlces in
its direction,. wondering what it was and why it looked so familiar.
David Richardson, the historical society's director, answered that '
question this week when he opened the courtyard to The Press for a
closer look.
"We (the historical society) were tickled to death that someone
from the school district had the foresight to consider calling us about
.this," he said, gesturing to the object that now rests on a platform
designed specifically to display it.
So what is it that the historical society was so pleased to receive?
It's the cupola from a building on the Baker County Middle
School campus. The building, erect-
ed in 1938, served many purposes (See page 2)

Even the base that supports the cupola holds some historical in-
terest as welL; The society was, given access to the bricks from the
building's foundation and arranged to receive a truckload along with
the cup~ola.
S"Some of us ii the society spent tiine out back chipping mortar off
the bricks by hand," said Mr. Richardson.
The cupolal, constructed out of wood, will soon receive a fresh coat
of white paint. The roof and weather vane, originally copper, will
retaili its muted green verdigris.
Besides being a bit ~of tangible nostalgia and an attractive ornarient
for the courtyard, the cupola will function iri another way. Inside is a
time capsule.
Contained in the capsule are photos, documents and other printed
mementos from the historical society's own holdings which are stored

inI ges I~hudpid ou that nothing of monetary value is stored
inside' jitst i4 case anyone has any ideas about trying to open it," Mr.
Richardson said with a laugh. "There's only printed information,
like the results of~ihe recent elections, photos of the area, things like
that.!
More upgrades are planned for the courtyard at the old jail in the
near future. The historical society wants to make it a pleasant place
for visitors vriho come to do research and others.
"People often come: some distance an~d spend an entire day here
doing research," said Mr. Richar-dson, "We plan to mnake the court-
yard very nice, with benches and maybe a picnic table where they can
relax arid have lunch when the weather is nice."
Located on 47 W. McIver Street, the Baker County History Society
is open on Saturdays from 10:00 to 4:00 pm.

doing the right thing, and I can
honestly say that even when I
was a principal, he was very pro-
fessional. He seldom discussed
school matters when we were
together as a family. I guess.we
had other things to share."
Avoiding conflicts may be
easier for school board members
than-on other local boards since
the bulk of votes during the two
regular monthly meetings deal
directly or indirectly with statu-
tory requirements or edicts from
the state or federal departments
of education. The district often
has little choice but to affirm
mandates since most of its op_
eratin funds come from outside
Baker Co options generally
are personnel and building and
maintenance matters.
School board members in
Baker County make $25,207 an-
nually not counting retirement
benefits. Superintendent Rauler-
son's base pay is $95,239. ,

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, December 4, 2008 Page 3


I did something this year I absolutely never do.
I went shopping on Black Friday. Usually, on
the day after Thanksgiving I sit at home and let my
wife brave the lines, the craziness and the battle for
bargains.
That has long been my plan.
She and her buddies can get up M Y S
early and elbow aside old ladies
as they all converge on the: bestsle TH
Not me. I sleep late, putter
.around the house, watch what- ROBERT
ever sports 'is available,~ and q lPIIIEllItP
maybe put up. Christmas deco-
rations. and lights if so inclined.
Recently, I've heard. Black Friday referred to as
Man Day, the day when most of the spouses' are
off spending money and dodging crowds and men
areleft to their own devices. As a result, I've come
to love the day after Thanksgiving as'much as the
stores, but for very different reasons. It is a day of
rest.
When the kids were' young, Kelley and her
friends would leave before there was,even a hint of
light in the morning sky and not return until it was
pitch black out.. Her personal record was !the year
she was at Toys R Us at 5:00 am and didn't return
home uritil 11:30 that night. .
It was like Santa, though she came through the
front door and not the chimney..I couldn't see her
'face shie-was so loaded down with packages. She
,regaled in telling me how she had done battle with
an old lady over a scarf or sweater for her rnommna.
Theli and there I firmly resolved not to get caught
up in the madness that is Black Friday -if I could do
Anything to help it. .
That was then, this is now. I've been smitten by
Big Screen TVLust.
It's just~a small step behind New Car Fever in
its virulence. Big Screen TV Lust comes upon you
suddenly and is highly contagious. Once you have
it, it is very difficult to get rid of and consumes all
your waking hours.
I got the early stages of Big Screen TV Lust by
watching part of a football game on Duncan Har-
trey's high definition tel vision.
"You can see the sweat on that gu 's face!' I said :
Sin awe.
"You ought to see a movie in Blue Ray," he an-
swered.
"Is it better than DVD?"
"Njo comparison."
The germ was planted, but it lay dormant for
weeks, if not months. All it needed was a final
weakening of my body's immune system to take
root and start me on the downward spiral that ended
with me stepping across my threshold anid ourt into

Dear Editor:
I live in Macclenny and am very proud of our city. We have a beau-
tiful new hardware store and our Heritage Park is well taken care of
and beautifully decorated at Christmas time.
This is a rough economic time for everyone, but the people of Mac-
clenny are very friendly and always there to lend a hand when you
need on&. With this Christmas season I have tried to help everyone
I can and spread the holiday cheer. Birt I have. one complaint, v which
may seem trivial to most.
I ride down Macclenny Avenue and they have decorated for Christ-
mas and done a really nice' j~oi. BuCt .for gosh sakes -- whio in the wNo d
thought pf putting up blue lights for thie street dhecpbrationsi't sure
doesn't look like Christmas!
The fire station and Senior Ceilter look beautiful, but the street
overhead colors need some real thought. Thar'k you for allowing
me to give my opinion. God bles's everyone and I w~ish you a Merry
Christmas and Happy New Year.

the Black Friday shopping experience.
The next step came the day before Thanksgiving
when I was on the internet and spied an article that
screamed The Best Flat Screen Deals Ever!
Ever? Ever. Ever is good. I
[DE OFread the article and the germ
within my body stirred. The
current economic forecast
[ATTE. meant that electronic giants
like Best Buy and HHII Gregg
were cutting prices on big
IG.ERARD screen televisions.
"This is the best timle ever
to buy a big screen television.
It says so right here. Prices are rock bottom," I told
my wife.
"We'vre nowhere to put a big screen television,"
she replied.
In woman speak that translate's to "Are you
nuts? A big screen television? In man speak that
translates to "She didn't say no!"
All I had to do was find a way to make it fit. Big
Screen TV Lust exploded in my system. Break out
the: Stanley Fat.Max tape measure. I measured the
inside of our current entertainment system. I mea-
sured walls to see what would fit. I measured furni-
ture to see how if could be moved to accommodate
a new, television. I even measured my old TV so I
could speak about its pitifuhiess.
At that point the Big Screen TV Lust had flout-
ished to~ such a point that I said th~e unthinkable.
"You know, I think I'll go shoppitig with you Friday
and look at big screen televisions."
My wife was so caught off guard by that remark
all she could do was look shocked and say, "Ok."
Let me say one thing right now. I was self pos-
sessed enough that I didn't get up at 4:00 in the
morning so I could stand in the bleak dark staring
at the locked door of Walmart or Circuit City will-
ing it to open. I waited until mid-morning. That
gave me more time to research 1080p and HDMI
and Dynamic Contrast Ratios. I dare you ask me a
question. One of the symptoms of BSTVLust.iisyou'
speak incessantly about it and even write columns ~
about it. -
Okay.: Let's cut to the chse. Did I get.my big
screen television on Black Friday? 190. Did I re-
cotir from the lust? Oh no. Then why am I not en-
sconced in my chair watching my HDTY?
My wife knew the antidote that would not cure
it, but at least put it into remissioil for a short time.
Four hours into our fruitless search she injected me
with the serum.
<"~I think the prices are even going to go.lower."
She.said itin calm, flat voice.
I looiedJ at h'er with fevered brow. "You think?"
"Yep." _

BY JOEL' ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Cafeteria manager Nancy Ash was recently named Baker County
Middle School's non-instructional staffer of the year. Ms. Ash has
spent the last six years as a Bobcat and the previous 16 years working
in Keller Intermediate's lunchroom.
"I love the kids and feel blessed to be apart of such a good school
system," she said. "It feels like home working here. We're a team."
Ms. Ash joins eight other district employees nominated for the
'distnict-wide non-instructional employee of the year honor. The
group will be recognized during a regular school board meeting in
February.
Also named were Vicki Sweat, secretary of health services; Craig
Jones, AC mechanic; Dale Bennett, bus driver; Selina Waddell,
BCHS secretary; Claude Paige, Keller custodian, Vonda Crews, nurse
at Westside Elementary; Maureen Baker, teacher aide at Macclenny
Elementary; Cheryl Collins, ESE aide at Pre-K/Kindergarten Center.
Baker County Schools will pay $100 to its top three nominees at
the district-wide level.
"The employee chosen to represent the district will also get a mon-
etary award from the state. We don't know how much just yet," said
Ann Buxrch of the district.
Based upon the availability of funds, the Florida Department of
Education presents cash bonuses to the state-wide employee of the
year, each stsate-wide finalist and each district-wide employee of the
year.

ROTC cadets Jean deNicola, Robert Scheilding, Scott Jones and James Kuster visit with OsceolaoGB LEY N NIAN



Cadets make rounds at rehab


many of the residents, especially
the veterans, who have much to
share about their war experi-
eirces. Some develop very close
relationships with the folks they
visit.
They, have also begun to un-
der~stand the importance of their
participation.
"Their presence makes a big
difference to the residents and
they have come .to understand
that," said Ms. Wallace. "It also
seems to be making the cadets
appreciate their own youth and
health even more."
Serving the community, is
paramount to the ROTC leader-
ship experience. Ms. Wallace is
interested in identifying future
community service venues for
her dedicated group of students.
She can be reached at 259-
6286, extension 11101.

to go the next week."
The cadets rotate in groups of ;
;four and visit the nursing homne
'and rehab center etich week on
Tuesday afternoons for .two .
hours. Those two hours are de-
;'voted to spending quality, mean-

a variety of ways.
The cadets are always in uni-

'ROTC t-shirts, They help with
craft activities such as decorat-

new one opens.
Inspector Diane Johnsoi, a
lieutenant with Columbia Coun-
ty SO and a certified inspector,
spent the day October 23 sizing
up the 30-year-old facility with
Florida Model Jail Standards.
The annual review includes in-
terviews, reviews of key docu-
ments like policy manuals and a
walk-through inspection.
Lt. Johnson cited the facility
for holding church services in a


non-secure hallway, which Lt.
Finley explains is the only place
available.
She also noted that juveniles
are required to be kept out of
sight and sound of adult inmates,
not housed with adults after
transfer for court and that a sepa-
rate housing area available,
For now, juveniles are con-
fined to a lockdown cell removed
from the general population.
The jail averages 130 irimates
on a given day, including 15 fe-
males. The number of federal
prisoners is down to 5-7, said Lt.

Firearms were taken during two overnight burglaries at Baker
County businesses the past week, including a Macclenny gun shop
that has been hit before.
Owner Bill Krall estimates a dozen or more pistols were taken
from a display case overnight November 29 at his Hole in the Wall
shop on 4th St. Someone pried a front door open to gain entry, and a
neighbor reported seeing folk white males in the area between 1:00-
1':30 that morning. -The neighbor said he did not call police because
he doesn't have a phqne. ~
A passerby alerted police when he noticed the front door open.
In a secoild incident, the front door of the Citgo station at US 90
and Interstate 10 west of Sanderson was pried open to gain entry
about 12:30 am on December 1.
Deputy Jerald Peterson responded to an alarm and found a crow
bar lying near the door but no one inside. Owner Mark Andzeiczak
said a .357 pistol was taken as the intruder or intruders rifled through
the area behind the counter.
*Faye Rhoden reported a burglary at her residence during daylight
hours November 25. The residence on SR 121 north of Macclenny
was entered via a pried rear dpor, and Ms. Rhoden said rings and an
HDTV were taken, along with a 30-year-old football autographed by
the entire Buffalo Bills team that inch~ided O,J. Simpson.
*William Kelly said a newly issued Vystar debit card was, taken
from a drawer ait his residence off Woodlawn Rd. the afternoon of
November 21 and used to make $360 in purchases from three loca-
tions. He named a grandson as a suspect.
A slate sign valued at $300 was removed from the front yard,at
the Joe Beaver residence off Copper Dr. in Macclenny overnight on
November 27.

As Clerk, Circuit Court


Dear Editor:
As the head football coach of the Baker County
Wildcats, I want to express my siincere, appreciation
to mainy of the, people who supported pur team this
Past season.. As you ivell know, no football program
can be successful on the level ~that. ours has over the
past two seasons without the unbe~liealeb support
from people ojf-fhis commuiiity.
First, thanks to niy famrily, especially my won-
derful- wife Chev;on, for allowing me tor do what I
love to do and belng my- biggest fan. Thalnks also
to the: administration at Baker Countyr High School,
especially Me~lody Coggin. Without her- and the
rest of those folkS, we~ could never run the quality
program we hbpe to have.
*Thanks to Paula Barton for all of her support
Over th~e` past three years, t~o Fred Munsjn-and the
eitire W~ildcat Football Booster club, for being the
backbonie off our support base and for being great
pe~rsonal friends to both myself and our entire
teari.
The boosters met all of our requests during such
tough financial times. Only id Baker County would
we be able to raise the kindi of inoney- we 'did this
,year w~ith things so bad aroxind the country. It showvs
the dedication the people of this c~ommulnity have
for our kids.
:* ~Thank you to a small group of private support-
ers w~ho have been so good' to us~ over these three
years, including Mlr. aind Mrs. Jlmm\ Yarborough,
M~r. and Mrsj. Ray~ Gatlin, Mr. and M~rs. Dickiel Da-
vis, M~r. and MrIs. Gary Dopson, Mr. arid Mirs. Larry
iPayne. M~r. and M~rs. Fred Mhunison. Troppy Conner


and Mike Griffis.
*I would also like to thank the partners whO
support us each year on our Jumbotroix, including
-NEFCOM, the Baker County. Health Department,
W.W Gay, Mercantile Bank, American Enterpnise
Bank, Vystar Credit Union, Winn-Dixrie, Macclen-
Sny Equipment and Tractor, Burnham Construction
and the National Guard.
Thanks to Walmart DC for stipport of the fund
,raising efforts for Miltoh Johnison, as well as their
support for ogr entire ~teridi: A 'spbcia~l tiiiktis goes
out to Tim Sweat for arranging our p~re-game meals
and also to all of those- who fed our team all season
such wonderful meals in preparation of our gameS.
Thanks 'to the churches who participated in our
;breakfasts each week and to Coach Dale Johnson
for setting up those meals.
Thanks. to the parents of my players as well
as the fans who supported us all year. Without the
commitment of our parents and the support of our
fans, nothing we do would: b~e possible.
I want to thank God for all His strength. I know
that without HiS guidance, this football team could
have never endured the many trials it faced this past
season. I can't imagine another team that was chal-

tO lead team to wins


The Wiildcat varsity basketball team kicks off the season this week
and the Cats hope to improve on last season's 15-13 record and chal-
lenge for the district. ~Coach Charles Ruise is optimistic about the
team's chances.
"We're anticipating great things out of our senior leadership and
looking forward to putting Baker County back in.the hunt for some
'long-awaited post-season play," said Ruise.
Ruise, who will be starting his 12th year as thie Wildcat. head coach,
has an overall record of 175 wins and 116 losses,
The Cats will lean on three strong returning seniors. Josh Wiseman
is a 6'5" combo player who can start ~at guard, forward or center de-
pending on where he is needed, W iseman has the shooting touch to be
able to take over :a game anytime he gets liot.
Delano Paige can play guard or forward and is an athletic, versatile
player. Ruise particularly likes his attitude. H3e attacks the basket with
an unstoppable mentality. .
*Ike Parker is a solid rebounder for the center position. Parker has
good hands agound the basket and is a solid finisher from the paint. He
is also one of the top rebounders on the team.
Besides the seniors, keep an eye on Blane Finley, Britndon Robert-
SOn, Jarvis Simmons, Chris Walton, Anthony Baker, Marcel Gayden,
Darvin Ruise and Chris Robinson. .
AS usual, Coach Ruise .has the Cats in a swarming man-on-man
defeiise. They are big onshustle anid consistency, and their experience
Will be a big plus ii1 a tough district. The Wildcats use a lot of motion
011 OffellSe and can shoot the ball from anywhere on.the court.
The Cats will have a key gable early in their season when they take
on Br~aldford County~ Thursday at 7:30 in the -BCHS gynt. Ruisle has
marked the games against Bradfoird, Ridgeview and Alachua Santa Fe
as ones that are pairticularly important for the Wildcats to win if they
are to coinpete for a post-season slot.

o'clock in the morning," he said
of the shift leader positions.
During the board's regular
meeting that evening, com-
missioners also committed to
loaning the Baker Correctional
Devekipment Corporation (BCDC)
$195,000 for utility upgrades
along the west side of SR 228
from the new jail property to
just north of Linda Street.
The terms bf the loan will be
outlined in' a contract between
the county and the BCDC in
coming weeks.
Commission chairman Mike
Griffis said he preferred to keep
payback options open, allowing
the county to accept cash or acre-
age as payment for the loan.
"You never know what the
future may hold," he said. "The
land .may be more valuable to
us."
SCommissioner Gdrdon Crews
said he wanted interest charged
on the loan at whatever rate the
county receives on the reserves
from which the loan will be
funded.
With the ~board's decision to
loan the funds, the new jail's
builder Ajax Building Corp.


- can begin the utility work
while already mobilized for
the current construction, said
BCDC's project manager Danny
Thomas.
"They just needed the com-
mitment," he said.
In other business the county
commission approved:
*Accepting Robert Ogles
roughly $34,000 low bid to re-
roof the Ag Center, which is
about 30 years old.
The new metal roof was need-
ed because the exxitin'g shingled
roof had suffered damage in
during storms and consistently
leaks in heavy rain.
*Seeking a mold removal
estimate on a house that's being
rehabilitated by the county
through a state housing assis-
tance program. The rehab con-
tractor found the mold and sug-
gested demolishing the, house
to build a new one for $58,000,
rather than spending about
$56,000 to clean; up the mold
and finish the rehab. However,
the board decided to seek a
price for removing the mold that
may be below the contractor's
$17,000 estimate.


Three shift leaders from
county emergency medical ser-
vices will be receiving early
Christmas gifts thip year in the
form of $500 bonuses,
During an afternoon work-
shop December 2, the Baker
County Commission approved
the payments to EMS paramed-
ics who routinely^ perform extra
duties like training, ordering
supplies, reviewing procedrires
and protocols and assisting with
scheduling .of the- department's
12 staff members.
'"They're there to make deci-
sions when I'm not there," said
EMS director David Richardson. .
"They're there 24 hours st day."
He said that shift leaders, who
are the most senior paramedics
in the department, were given
those positions last January and .
have become the first point of
contact for other EMTs with
problenis or questions.
"It was saving alot of Monday
mormings that people were run-
ning around telling me about
what liad happened over, thie
weekend," said Mr. Richardson.
"It,saved me a lot of aggrava-


tion."
The shift leaders meet with
Mr. Richardson on, weekly or
monthly basis to talk about
departmental issues or changes
they think should be implement-
ed, like the use of new equipment
or procedures for instance.
"I think they serve a good
purpose and there's no upward
mobility after you become a
paramedic," he told the commis-
sioners. "They didn't come ask-
ing for this. I think they deserve
it."
Next the discussion turned
to how to disperse the bonuses, .
whether annually, quarterly or
monthljr or weekly.
It was decided to retroactive-
ly compensate the shift leaders
for the previous twelve months
with $500 sometime before
Christmnas.
The county can then decide
with the EMS union to change
the union contract to specify
how the bonuses would be
distributed in the future, said
County Manager Joe Cone.
