Two men stopped in a remote
part of the Osceola National
Forest by a federal officer ended
up charged with felony posses-
sion and growing marijuana
on a small plot in the Pinhook
Swamp forest near Highway 2
in northwest Baker County.
Officer Jim Ellis of the US
Forest Service police said he
stopped John Combs, 52,
of Glen St. Mary and Marty
Mansell, 53, of Macclenny the
morning of September 1 on
an unmarked road. Officer El-
lis said he detected the odor
of harvested marijuana plants
when he approached the men's
pickup truck, and a subsequent
search yielded a plastic garbage
bag with 41 ounces of the plant.
The plants had been freshly
cut, and Mr. Combs initially
said Mr. Mansell was not in-
volved and had merely driven
him to the area. He then led Of-
ficer Ellis to 15 plants averaging
seven feet in height. They were
under cultivation about 100
yards from where the men were
stopped.
Both Mr. Combs and Mr.
Mansell, in an interview the
next day with sheriffs investi-
gators, admitted to involvement

Man dies

in wreck

Saturday
An 18-year-old Glen St. Mary
man died after the 2005 Nissan
truck he was driving ran off
Claude Harvey Road for an un-
known reason about midnight
September 5.
Neither the victim Steven
Hicks, nor his passenger Bran-
don Waters, 21, of Macclenny
were wearing seat belts when
the northbound truck traveled
into a ditch, struck a culvert and
became airborne near Cedar
Creek Farms Road.
Both were taken to Fraser
Memorial where Mr. Hicks was
pronounced dead. He is the
county's eleventh traffic fatality
of the year. Mr. Waters' injuries
were described as minor by the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Trooper J.M. Smatt said the
crash was alcohol related.

County tax rate is retained

To balance budget with $895,000 from reserves


JOEL ADDINGTON I NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Witnessing a dozen property owners take
the podium to protest increased property
taxes and its chambers packed with nearly
o100 other like-minded residents, the Baker
County Commission voted unanimously the
evening of September 3 to leave the tax rate
unchanged and balance its
$33 million spending plan
with $895,000 in reserves.
The measure represents
a tax decrease of about
$25,000 because the com-
bined taxable value of all
the property under county
jurisdiction dropped about
$6 million this year.
The approval didn't
come without a warning,
however.
"Next year, unless the
Lord blesses us twofold,
we are going to have a day
of reckoning," predicted
Commissioner Michael
Crews after thanking past
and present commissioners
for building up the coun-
ty's rainy day fund, which
reached $11 million two Po


years ago.
It has since dropped to just over $8 million
after balancing this year's budget. Letting the
fund dip below $5 million could be danger-
ous, Clerk of Court Al Fraser said last month.
"As I look at the numbers, I believe without
a doubt we'll have to dig in there again," said
Mr. Crews. "You can only dig in the well so
many times before it goes dry."

Raising property taxes, cutting services or
both maybe unavoidable in 2010 if gas, sales
and other tax revenues distributed by Tal-
lahassee continue declining through 2010.
Commissioner Alex Robinson favored a slight
property tax increase to offset future drops
in state revenue and said last week: "I don't
want to find us in a position where we can't
take care of Baker County. I fear next year the
situation won't be so easy."
The board's vote to leave
the property tax, or millage,
rate at $7.14 per $1ooo of
taxable property value was
met with applause from the
audience members, many
of whom took time to shake
each commissioner's hand
after the meeting was ad-
journed.
At that rate, a property
valued at $150,00ooo with
a $50,ooo homestead ex-
emption would pay about
$714 in county taxes. Prop-
erty owners also pay school
board and hospital author-
ity taxes, and for those in
Macclenny, city taxes as
well.

County keeps tax


mill rate at 7.14...


< The commission adopted in
August the 7.86 tentative millage
rate used by the property apprais-
er's office to notify landowners of
their potential tax burden.
The proposed rate would've
meant a roughly $500,000 in-
crease in property taxes, but
likely also was responsible for the
standing-room-only audience for
the board's first hearing on 2009-
10 budget and tax rate.
Some in attendance shared
their experiences during what's
been called the worst economy
since the Great Depression.
"I'm blessed to be employed
right now," said Macclenny resi-
dent Garry Pelfrey. "I've taken a
substantial salary decrease. My
family has had to go through our
budget and make cuts."
Those reductions have includ-
ed reducing his family's enter-
tainment expenses, conserving
power to cut energy costs and
not purchasing new vehicles, he
said.
Former county commissioner
and Sanderson resident Julie
Combs said she and her husband,
a contractor, spent their life's
savings to start a construction
business.
"He's been sitting at home for
the last eight weeks," she said.
Eddie Davis is in the trucking
business and said that people
simply can't afford to pay more
in taxes.
"Just keep the working people
in mind," he said. "Take it easy
on us."
Mark Lancaster of Glen St.
Mary called on county officials
to be more "creative and innova-
tive" to slash departmental bud-


gets. "I can't think of a worse time
to think about raising the millage
rate," said Mr. Lancaster.
Danny Norton of Macclenny
said he had never attended a
county commission meeting un-
til last week.
"I've been moved by some of
what's been said here," said the
35-year resident, adding that
businesses can't raise prices in
a recession because they have to
stay competitive.
"Maybe the government needs
to be competitive, too," he said.
The commission's second and
final public hearing on the budget
and tax rate is set for September
21 at 6:00 pm in its chambers, 55
N. 3rd St.
In other business that evening,
the commission:
Tabled hiring a timber con-
sultant to oversee harvesting at
St. Mary's Shoals Park. Though
Green Cove Spring's King For-
estry submitted the low bid
- 3 percent of potential proceeds
from the harvesting the board
questioned whether a consultant
was really needed.
Awarded a roughly $1 million
project to APAC, the lowest road
paving bidder for work on CR 229
S. The project is entirely funded
through a Florida Department of
Transportation grant and County
Manager Joe Cone said there will
be about $400,000 left over. He
said a decision on how to spend
the remaining grant could be
made at a later date.
Commissioners also passed
a resolution endorsing another
FDOT-funded road project, re-
surfacing Mud Lake Road for
$2.9 million.


First wav(


inmates a
< formed in 2007, but planning for
the 512-bed facility began as early
as 2002.
Six years later the bonds were
sold and construction began. The
project was completed and the
sheriffs department, emergency
management services, dispatch-
ers and local inmates moved
into the complex last June. Since
then it's housed about 1oo local
inmates and a small group of
prisoners from other federal law
enforcement agencies.
"I've been anxious about get-
ting to this day," said Sheriff
Dobson, who along with other
county officials have been eager
to see cells at the complex occu-
pied and federal dollars start to
trickle in.
Since that roughly $84 per day
per prisoner is expected to repay
the bonds, the slow churning of
ICE's Washington bureaucracy
took its toll in recent months as
local officials fielded numerous
inquiries about when, if ever, the
prisoners might be transferred.
Last week Sheriff Dobson
asked for assistance from Sena-
tor Bill Nelson's office in moving
the paperwork along. He said the
senator's office called September
ito inform him that ICE inmates
would arrive within the week.
"They got it done," said Sheriff
Dobson. "My blood pressure is
probably somewhat down now...
This day is historical. It's what we
built this facility for."
The sheriff's department,
which has a management con-
tract with BCDC to run the jail,
hired 16 new guards to handle


Sof ICE


rrive at jail
additional inmates. The staffing
plan calls for two more waves of
hiring that will culminate with 60
sworn officers at the complex.
"It's not a lot of change, just in
the numbers," said Sheriff Dob-
son about the impact of housing
ICE inmates. "It changes the
complexity of dealing with them
on an everyday basis."
More than 350 cells remain
empty, and it's unclear when the
new jail might reach full capac-
ity.
"It's going to be slowly," said
an ICE supervisor from Jackson-
ville who asked not to be identi-
fied. "Once you go into this, it's
like making jambalaya you
add the rice, let it cook, then the
beans; you take your time."
In the view of BCDC president
Todd Knabb, it's good the facil-
ity didn't fill up immediately. "It
gives them a chance to get all the
kinks worked out," he said.
According to a 10-year cash
flow forecast for the BCDC, the
jail's projected income won't
reach $15.6 million annually until
2013. That figure represents how
much revenue would be gener-
ated if all 512 beds were occupied
continuously for 365 days.
The forecast also shows that
by this time next year, the BCDC
is expected to have $12.4 million
coming in with only $10.4 mil-
lion in operational expenses and
debt payments.

Maj. Chuck Brannan and other investigators have been surveying

In other drug-related arrests, Jeffrey Keene, 32, of St. George, GA
was booked for felony possession of two controlled narcotics after his
pickup was stopped on SR 121 in north Macclenny.
Deputy Larry Clark said he stopped the Ford truck in the parking
lot of the Quick N Handy store about lo:oo pm on September 5 after
noting a tail light out.
Mr. Keene consented to a search that yielded four Lortab and five
Clonazepam tablets in the suspect's pockets. Several of the pills were
in a snuff can.
Edward Stewart, 54, of Macclenny was arrested for possession
of a crack pipe and steel wool after he was questioned the evening of
September 4 by Deputy Jeff Shouse. The officer said Mr. Stewart was

The same officer arrested Sara Bowman, 24, for misdemeanor pos-
session of a marijuana cigarette the evening of September 4.
Ms. Bowman was driving a 1999 Pontiac on Michigan Ave. in Mac-

her purse during a consent search. She, along with passengers Megan
Finley, 18, of Macclenny and Thomas Kent, 23, of Sanderson, was also
charged with possessing open containers of beer.
A 16-year-old Baker High student was arrested for possession of

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


'Hypocritical, ridiculous...'

Last week's letter from molester's sister


Dear Editor:
I am usually not one to write letters to the paper,
but I just couldn't let the letter you published last
week titled 'Private matter into circus' by Heather
Cranford [Ludwig] pass without pointing out how
hypocritical and flat out ridiculous it was.
She was commenting on the front page article
in the August 26 edition about her brother Micah
Cranford being sentenced for child molestation.
Apparently she feels the newspaper was wrong and
smeared her family for reporting the fact that her
brother was a good kid gone bad. I guess she feels
this is not newsworthy.
I want to thank the newspaper for pointing out
the fact that he was a "good kid" based on his grades,
Boy Scouts, etc., and turned out to be a predator.
That is the story. Parents can't trust anyone any-
more with their children.
I found nothing in that article to be a smear on
the Cranford family. The only people smearing their
name are their own children.
The writer asked, "What has this family done to
hurt anyone in the Baker County community?" May-
be she should ask that same question to the parents
of the two small children who were molested!


I would understand Ms. Cranford's anger if The
Press made it front page news that her brother was
picked up for underage drinking, speeding, shoplift-
ing or some other dumb teenage decision that many
make. But this was child molestation! This is not
some petty crime.
The writer seemed so focused on clearing her
family name and it sickens me that she has no re-
morse for the crime that had been committed. Does
she have any concern for the lives of the victims and
families that have been ruined?
Lastly, I cannot believe Ms. Cranford had the
nerve to bring God into this by writing, "The day
you meet your maker, may He have mercy on your
soul."
The last time I checked, God does not think too
highly of those who hurt children. [Matthew 18:6
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which
believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone
were hanged about his neck, and that he were
drowned in the depth of the sea.]
Ms. Cranford had better save her prayers for
those who need it.

Unfathomable slaying


Seven of the eight victims
of the recent mass slaying in
Brunswick, Ga. were laid to rest
in the cemetery of Youngs Island
Community Church of God on
Saturday.
The son of one victim, Guy
Heinze Jr., a suspect in the slay-
ings, was charged the night be-
fore with eight counts of first-de-
gree murder and another count
of attempted murder.
The reasons for such an un-
fathomable act have yet to be
revealed. When they are, the re-
maining family members, friends
and the public will struggle with
the facts.
I've heard conversation about
the event several times since it
happened. There has been specu-
lation about revenge killings for
a drug deal gone wrong. Another
angle involved an alleged mon-
etary settlement won by the fam-
ily who had gathered together to
celebrate.
But no one yet knows. The
one thing that is fact is this was a
horrific event, straight out of the
darkest sort of nightmare.
Losing people to illness and
accidents is painful and we may
question why, but we understand
it was the illness or the trauma
from the accident that caused the
death. It may not seem fair, but
the mind can make sense of it.


THE BACK

PORCH
Kelley Lannigan
Trying to understand the
motivation behind an event like
the Brunswick slaying and the
mindset of the person who may
have killed his own father and
seven others leaves most people
simply shaking their heads.
For average, normal folks, the
mind of a killer is a domain that
cannot be navigated. They don't
have the frame of reference to do
so.
I occasionally visit the Wood-
lawn Cemetery in Macclenny
because two of my friends are
buried there. Family members of
other friends lay in rest there as
well. I didn't know them in life,
but knowing their sisters, broth-
ers, cousins, sons or daughters
creates a connection for me.
When I visit and walk among
the headstones I recognize
names and feel I am among ex-
tended family. I took flowers out
to Woodlawn on Sunday and
couldn't help but think of about
the Brunswick situation, trying to
imagine how I would feel.
I have never been to a funeral

where multiple family members
were buried at one time and I
hope I never have that experi-
ence.
At funerals, we fully expect the
presence of one casket. On the
rarest of occasions, perhaps two.
But seven caskets, bearing mem-
bers of the same family is out of
the realm of experience for most.
I truly sympathized with the
preacher, Danny Stilwell, on
whose shoulders the task of con-
ducting that service fell. It had to
have been exceedingly difficult.
In a video of the funeral posted
on Jacksonville.com, Mr. Stilwell
can be heard stating "I prayed for
days that the Lord would get me
through it."
Sixteen year old Tyler Heinze
can be seen also, just after the fu-
neral, speaking with the media.
He holds in his hands the tri-fold-
ed American flag that covered his
father's casket. The white stars
on the bright blue fabric contrast
vividly with his dark suit.
He is surprisingly composed
for someone whose father has
been murdered and whose old-
er brother is charged with the
crime.
He defends his brother, of
course. In this judicial system, a
man or woman is innocent until
proven guilty in a court of law.
But it doesn't look good for Guy
Heinze Jr.
Not good at all.

Dear Editor:
A member of my family was "life flighted" recently from the Baldwin
Truck Stop to Shands Jacksonville. The cost of this necessary, life-sav-
ing flight of 21 miles was over $13,000.
I moved here from Kentucky six years ago. In Christian County
(Hopkinsville), each household pays $60 a year for Life Flight, whether
they use the service or not. The amount covers family members in the
household.
The county commissions of Baker, Duval, Nassau, Clay, St. Johns,
Union and Bradford should get together with the Life Flight (and Trau-
ma One) people and see if something like this is feasible.
It takes money to buy or lease these helicopters, outfit them with
medical equipment and staff them with a crew that includes a regis-
tered nurse. Then there are maintenance costs.
If enough households would pay $50 or $75 a year for this service,
people would not face the expense of $5000 to $15,000 per flight.
No one knows in the coming year if your household will need Life
Flight to help save the life of you or your children.

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
Call this one "The Difference

This topic is not something
that I've just noticed recently,
but something I've never written
about. It's about accidents.
Not accidents of the auto
variety, though I'm sure that
they count, too, but the every-
day household variety. Men and
women just seem to have differ-
ent opinions about accidents and
I really don't know why.
Here's what I've noticed.
Men know that accidents are
out there just waiting to happen.
Women aren't willing to admit

their very existence.
When I drop something, my
wife always asks, "What are you
doing?" as if I'm actually doing
anything other than dropping
something. It's not as if I can an-
swer, "I wanted to see if it would
bounce."
Years ago, back in the dim
recesses of our marriage I was
moving some stuff off the sink
and dropped a cut glass dish in
the sink and it broke. In my mind
I was saying "Dad gum it, I broke
that cut glass thing."
"What was that?" Of course
she knew the answer and fol-
lowed it up with, "What did you
break?"
"This dad gum cut glass thing
slipped out of my hands." Mean-
ing it was an accident.
All men understand these kind
of accidents. They also under-
stand the ramifications. Because
when we say "The dad gum thing
slipped," women translate this as
"I wonder what would happen if
I hit this dad gum cut glass thing
with a claw hammer?"
"What cut glass thing?" She
hits the kitchen with the speed of
a jungle cheetah. For me, escape
is impossible.
She tears up at the sight of the
shattered glass in the sink. "That
was my Granny's cut glass candy
dish."
Back to the translation ma-
chine. In a man's head that
translates to "You are in more
trouble than can be believed. You
will hear about this for the rest
of your marriage every time you
break something because I am
a woman and I don't believe in
accidents. I believe in claw ham-
mers."
You might wonder what
brought up this subject?
We were driving home in Kel-
ley's van from UNF on Thursday
night. Our son's band had just
played at The Boathouse and we
were on our way home.
I remembered the Jaguars
were playing their last pre-sea-
son game versus the Redskins,
so I thought I might tune it in for
the ride home.
I pushed the power button for


the radio. Instead of the radio
coming on, all the lights in the
radio went dead.
"What did you do to the ra-
dio?"
"Nothing." Meaning noth-
ing special, nothing destructive,
nothing involving a claw ham-
mer.
"You broke my radio."
"No I didn't," I said, realizing
as I said it that denial was point-
less.
"Yes you did. You broke my
radio."
I dare not mention that had
I not been in the car the same
thing would have happened to
her the next time she turned on
the radio. That kind of thinking
implies that accidents exist.
"It's probably just a fuse. I'll
check it in the morning."
"Now I can't listen to CD's or
anything."
I said nothing.
This morning, she reminded
me.
"You need to fix my radio"
"Okay." I replaced the fuse and
the radio works again.
Also this morning, I dropped a
piece of 4 X 8 plywood on my foot
while I was working on my set for
Steel Magnolias. My foot is cut
and bruised and I have a limp.
I told my wife about it. "I
dropped a 4 X 8 foot piece of ply-
wood on my foot at the school."
"Why did you do that?" she
asked.
I looked at her a moment be-
fore answering. "Because I didn't
have a claw hammer to hit it
with."
"What?"
"Never mind."

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


CITY OF MACCLENNY



Tax increase on the way


Could mean additional $19,000


JOELADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com

In an effort to avoid a $60,000
hit contingency funds for the
coming year, the Macclenny City
Commission is set to consider
raising property taxes while cut-
ting in half a proposed raise for
city employees.
The board unanimously ap-
proved dropping the raise from 3
percent down to 1.5 percent and
setting the property tax rate at
$3.60 per $1ooo of taxable value
during its meeting the evening of
September 8.
Final adoption of the 2009-10
budget and accompanying prop-
erty tax, or millage, rate will be
September 15 at 5:00 pm in City
Hall. The new fiscal year begin
October 1.
At the proposed tax rate, the
owner of a property valued at
$150,000 with a $50,000 home-
stead exemption would pay ap-
proximately $360 in city taxes.
The millage rate would also
generate about $819,ooo for
city coffers, or roughly $19,ooo
more than this year. "It would
give us a slight cushion in these
lean times," City Manager Gerald
Dopson told the board.
The extra revenue could pump
up the $6.2-million budget's
contingency, which stood at
$124,000 in the latest proposal.
"I don't feel comfortable with
$120,000 in contingency," said
the manager.
Mr. Dopson went on to explain
how employee raises amounted
to approximately $63,000 in ad-
ditional personnel costs, and how
each percent would cost about
$21,000.
The city employes 43 people.
"I want to give the employees
a pay raise, but I'm thinking 2
percent and using that $21,000
to help with contingency," said
Commissioner Vernon Bennett.
"I was thinking more like 1
percent, to cover the cost of living
[increase]," added Mayor Gary
Dopson.
Commissioner Phil Rhoden
estimated that by cutting the
raise in half to 1.5 percent and in-
creasing the current property tax
rate, $3.48 per $1ooo of taxable
value, contingency funds could be
boosted to $177,000. This year's
budget included about $184,000
in contingency.
"It puts us almost back to
where we were," he said.
One city resident, realtor Den-
nis Collins, voiced opposition to
the property tax increase, par-
ticularly during a recession.
"Everybody's hurting," he said.
"I know people that are taking
cuts in pay to keep their jobs."
Commissioner Bennett re-
sponded by citing the hard work
of city staff.
"I can't hardly got to sleep, not
giving them something," he said.
"They're not getting by as easy as
some people might think they're
getting by."
City workers are also facing
a 10 percent increase in their
health insurance premiums, even
with a reduction in benefits.
The premiums are split evenly

between employees and the city's
employer contribution, added
Gerald Dopson.
In other business, the board
heard from downtown property
and business owners about ex-
panding the upgrades on College
Street lighting, landscaping
and brick-rimmed sidewalks -
through more of the city's core.
The city would need to borrow
an estimated $250,000 to begin
work immediately.
At 4 percent interest over
8 years that would cost about


$36,57o a year.
The city already has more than
$5 million in debt related to pre-
vious water, sewer, garbage and
street projects.
"It's big money," said The
Baker County Press owner Jim
McGauley. "I think it would kind
of foolish right now."
Ed Barber, another downtown
property owner, hoped the city
would start the project as soon as
possible, while materials are still
cheap. "That's the kind of look
we'd like to have."


Burglary at Council on Aging


Video game equipment and
cash were taken from the Baker
County Council on Aging during
the night August 31 in an appar-
ent burglary.
When employees came to
work that morning, they found
a rear door ajar and a laptop
computer in its case lying in an
unpaved parking area behind the
building on US 90 in downtown
Macclenny. There was no sign of
forced entry.
CoA director Mary Baxla said
a video game console, video
game and $240 were missing
from inside the building. Value of
the equipment was an additional
$450.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said
the laptop may have been left be-
hind during a hasty exit from the


premises.
In another commercial bur-
glary, someone cut the locks on
two garages at Secure Storage on
SR 121 south between August 30
and September 2. The locks were
later found in a nearby wooded
area.


Frank Cohenour, who reported
the burglary, said the spaces were
leased by tenants with addresses
in St. George, GA and Idaho. He
was attempting to contact them
to determine what if anything
had been taken.

Shoplifter flees


another arrested


Two deputies assigned to
court duty arrested a Macclenny
woman as she attempted to leave
the Walmart Supercenter the af-
ternoon of September 3 after an
alleged shoplifting accomplice
got away.
Sakara Albritton, 20, and the
second woman were observed by
a security employee acting suspi-
ciously, and police were told the
unidentified woman was con-
cealing merchandise. The report
did not state the method of con-
cealment, nor a monetary value
of the stolen items.
The security worker stopped
the first woman as she attempted
to leave the store about 1:oo pm,
but she ran to a vehicle and drove
off. Ms. Albritton attempted to
leave also, but was stopped and
handcuffed by Sgt. Charles Ross
and Rodney Driggers, who are as-
signed to courthouse security but
were at the store during a lunch
break.
Ms. Albritton is charged with
petty theft, indicating the mer-
chandise was valued at less than
$300.
In other cases:


A criminal complaint for
petty theft was filed September
6 against Leslie Starling, 38, of
Sanderson for allegedly taking
cash belonging to Robert Harris
of Glen St. Mary.
Mr. Harris told Sgt. James
Marker the undisclosed amount
of cash was in his vehicle and Ms.
Starling was the only person with
access to it. They had been at the
beach earlier that day, and police
were called to Ms. Starling's ad-
dress on CR 127 on a disturbance
call after an argument broke out.
She was gone when the officer
arrived.
Police got only the first name
and a vehicle description of a fe-
male who ran down a mailbox in
the yard of Ralph Self on North
Boulevard in Macclenny about
2:00 the morning of September
1.
A neighbor said the woman
had given him a ride home from
Mac's Liquors.
A license decal was taken
from a 2003 Lincoln parked at
the residence of Gil Crowser on
Wolfe Dr. in Macclenny between
August 14-28.

House.


Anniversary fetes


at the Waffle House


((From page 1
night when they were attending
either a Wildcat or Gator game.
"We wanted to celebrate by
going out to dinner, but the main
part of the evening was occupied
by sports," said Mr. Covington.
"By the time we'd finish up,
Waffle House would be about the
only place open, so wherever we
were, that's were we would go."
The couple came to look for-
ward to their late night celebra-
tion over waffles, bacon and cof-
fee.
"We've always been the best of
friends and have done everything
together. People tease us about
being joined at the hip," said Mrs.
Covington. "If you're with your
best friend, doing the simplest
thing becomes special."
The Covingtons met as ninth
graders in Murray, Kentucky.
Both attended Murray State
University and married after Mr.
Covington served in the military.
His high school coaching jobs
ultimately brought him to work
at the high school in Bell, Florida,
about forty miles from Gaines-
ville.
They became Gator fans at
that time. Mr. Covington left Bell
to became Baker County High
School's coach in 1957.
The Covingtons quickly grew
to love Macclenny.
"I'm not a big city person,"
says Mr. Covington. "I didn't like
big city attitudes. I didn't find
that in Baker County. I didn't
have to put up with disrespectful
students."
He says he certainly kept the
boys in line, but coaching was
like being a father, too. He loved
being able to get to know the peo-
ple in the community, something


working in a big city school didn't
lend itself to.
For Mr. Covington, a reward-
ing experience was to coach two
generations. A football player
would graduate and then later
down the road, his son would
come along and he'd would coach
him too.
"After we moved to Macclen-
ny, anything we ever did outside
of school had to revolve around
either the Wildcats or the Gators
playing," said Mrs. Covington.
'That's the way it was."
Mr. Covington suffered a heart
attack in 1987, ending his coach-
ing career. He then became an
assistant principal and later the
school district's property chief.
He admits he took his invol-
untary absence from the field
hard. After recovering from the
heart attack, it was a year before
he could be a spectator at a Wild-
cat game.
"It nearly broke my heart not
to be able to coach the boys, but
I had no choice. I eventually was
able to enjoy just watching a
game, though," he said.
The Covingtons still go to
Wildcat games and this year
marks the 55th season they will
be in the stands to watch the
Florida Gators do their thing.
Because they have always en-
joyed doing things together, they
share the same hobbies. They en-
joy refinishing antique furniture
together, boating and for many
years both practiced taxidermy.
"We were fortunate to land in
Baker County," said Mrs. Coving-
ton. "It's been a joyful ride. I'm
with the person I was meant to
be with. We couldn't have asked
for a more blessed marriage. And
Go Gators!"


Alleged pistol pointing


In case of

road rage
The state attorney's office will
decide whether a Glen St. Mary
man will be charged with bran-
dishing a pistol at a truck driver
he claims ran him off CR 23-D
north of Macclenny the morning
of September 2.
Deputy Tony Norman said he
stopped a Chevrolet pickup driv-
en by Hubert Stalnaker, 66, when
the truck driver called police with
the license number shortly after
the altercation about 11:30.
The complainant, Kenneth
Gunter, 48, of Jacksonville said
he was westbound on 23-D and
veered into the opposite lane to
avoid an overhanging branch.
Shortly after, he was confronted
by the suspect who briefly point-
ed the pistol at him, then replaced
it in a holster.
When questioned, Mr. Stal-
naker admitted to involvement
in the altercation, but denied
pulling the pistol. He consented
to a search of a tool box where he
indicated his pistol was stored,
and Deputy Norman retrieved
a loaded .32 caliber magnum
revolver. It was confiscated as
evidence.
The officer also learned Mr.
Stalnaker has a concealed weap-
on permit. He could be charged
with aggravated assault.
In other complaints:
Leroy Spatcher, 50, accused
George Church, 47 of picking
him up by the neck and waist,
then throwing him to the ground
about noon on September 1.
Several witnesses to the in-
cident affirmed Mr. Spatcher's
version of events just off Barber
Rd. in Macclenny. Mr. Spatcher,
who Deputy Brad Dougherty
noted smelled strongly of alcohol
when questioned, said his cousin
Mr. Church had given him a ride
home and denied provoking
him.
The accused gave a different
version, telling the deputy his
cousin initially said he would
pay for the ride home then be-


gan cursing him and refusing
to pay anything. Mr. Church
said his cousin was intoxicated
and possibly taking drugs, and
he slammed him to the ground
when he thought Mr. Spatcher
was reaching for a knife.
Another employee at North-
east Florida State Hospital has
filed a criminal complaint against
a patient for attacking her.
Livia Ruise, 42, of Glen told


Deputy Randy Davis a 24-year-
old male patient struck her on
the shoulder late the morning
of August 31. She reported the
incident September 4 on the ad-
vice of a supervisor in an effort
to transfer the patient because of
violent behavior.
Ms. Ruise also said she was
pursuing a charge of battery
against the patient.


Licenses suspended
The sheriffs department arrested four motorists the past week for
driving on suspended licenses, one of the arrests the result of a traffic
stop for a seat belt violation.
Deuty Shawn Bishara said he stopped a southbound GMC Yukon
on SR 121 late the morning of September 6 because a female passenger
was sitting on the lap of a male passenger and was not restrained by a
seat belt.
He learned via a computer check that the vehicle's driver Terry
Burnham, 33, of Glen St. Mary had eleven prior license suspensions.
Other violators include:
John Davis, 59, of Glen with a license suspended as an habitual of-
fender. He was stopped by Deputy Larry Clark about 1:20 the morning
of September 2 on Taber Blvd. His 1997 Honda was swerving in the
roadway, and Mr. Davis was also ticketed for having an open container
of alcohol in the vehicle.
Charles Walker, 20, of Macclenny, had four prior suspensions.
Deputy Bishara stopped him in a 1998 Ford near his residence on Lew-
is St. just before midnight on September 4 because the license tag had
been stolen in Duval County.
Mr. Walker was also ticketed for having no insurance and the stolen
tag.
Robert Curran, 47, of Glen, driving a 1988 Ford southbound on
South 6th in Macclenny with no tag lights the evening of September 4.
A computer check revealed Mr. Curran's license had seven prior
suspensions.

Domestic battery arrest



Tried to force wife into vehicle


The sheriffs department ar-
rested a 23-year-old Macclenny
man September 6 and charged
him with domestic violence bat-
tery for attempting to force his
wife into his pickup and prevent
her from getting into another
one.
Matthew Weichman was
charged after Deputy Daniel
Nichols questioned him at the
residence of his mother of Clete
Harvey Rd. several hours after
the incident.
Lisa Weichman, 22, told po-
lice she left the residence about
11:30 that morning on foot fol-
lowing an argument. She admit-
ted striking her husband in an
attempt to fend him off, and said
he then struck her and pushed
her to the ground when she re-
fused to get into his vehicle. He
also attempted to pull her from
another vehicle that stopped to
assist her.
The occupants of the second
vehicle, John and Cassandra
Wheeler of Macclenny, corrobo-
rated Ms. Weichman's version of
events.
Later that day, the accused's
mother Debbie Brown told Dep-
uty Brad Dougherty she suspects
Ms. Weichman is neglecting or


abusing the couple's two chil-
dren, ages 1 and 2. Her complaint
was referred to the Department
of Children and Families.
The wife sought treatment at
Fraser Hospital for a hand injury.
Deputy Nichols noted her arms
and face had abrasions consis-
tent with her complaint.
In other incidents, a criminal
complaint for domestic battery
was filed September 6 against
April Goff, 28, of Glen St. Mary
for allegedly teaming up with
another woman and beating her
boyfriend Jeffrey Cates, 24, also
of Glen. The couple has a child
together.
Mr. Cates told Deputy Jeffery
Shouse he had been drinking at
the beach with the accused and
Bethany McCrary, 29, also of
Glen, and they struck him repeat-
edly in the face during an argu-
ment on the way back to Baker
County about 2:00 am.
The boyfriend said the women
again struck him when he went
to Ms. McCrary's residence about
3:40 to retrieve his motorcycle.
The officer interviewed him at
the Fraser Hospital emergency
room where he went for treat-
ment of facial abrasions.
Ms. Goff was arrested after


Arrests in the same



neighborhood for



unruly intoxication

Sheriffs deputies were in the same north Macclenny neighborhood
on successive nights last week and made arrests for disorderly intoxica-
tion.
Deputy Matt Sigers arrested Brandon Stanley, 21, after he ignored a
warning to stay away from the residence of Jeremy Rhoden. The deputy
first went to the scene September 1 about 4:45 am on a disturbance call
after Mr. Stanley broke out a window, then returned on a similar call
shortly thereafter.
This time, Mr. Stanley was cursing loudly and refused to calm him-
self.
The following morning about 12:45, Deputy Jeffrey Shouse was back
in the same block to arrest Linette Barron, 36, on a similar charge. She
was yelling loudly and cursing inside the residence of Ralph Self, and
refused to calm herself.
Ms. Barron was also charged with resisting arrest without violence.
In other cases:
Jason Leonard, 18, of Macclenny was arrested inside the Country
Club Lounge about 1:4o am on September 5 for underage drinking,
fraudulent use of an ID and misrepresenting his age.
Deputy Shouse said he was acting on a tip when he confronted the
suspect drinking inside the bar, and Mr. Leonard initially showed him
a driver's license belonging to Christopher Brantley, who is 23. Mr.
Leonard said he stole the license during a previous visit to the lounge
off SR 121.
Two bartenders at the same location were arrested last month for
selling to a minor.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of David Zipperer, 19, of Glen,
who fled from a residence off Bertha Mae Harris Rd. the afternoon of
September 4 when a deputy showed up to serve two other warrants.
Deputy Daniel Nichols said Mr. Zipperer ran south from a rear door
after the officer asked his brother Wesley Zipperer if he could search
the premises. He is wanted on two counts of failure to appear in court,
and the latest warrant is for resisting arrest.
The brother initially told Deputy Nichols the suspect was not there.




Speeder captured;



wanted for felonies

A Tallahassee man stopped for speeding on Interstate 10 about mid-
night on September 6 turned up wanted in Georgia on two counts of
felony fraud.
Craig Murphy, 24, ran briefly from police after he was stopped in an
eastbound 2000 Buick that was clocked going 87 mph. Deputy Patrick
McGauley said a computer check revealed the outstanding warrants
and that Mr. Murphy was driving on a suspended license.
The officer said the suspect took off running south while he was be-
ing questioned, then parallel to a right-of-way fence about 100 yards
before he was tackled in about two feet of water. Deputies McGauley
and Larry Clark, along with FHP Trooper J.M. Smatt, struggled briefly
with the suspect before he was subdued and handcuffed.
Mr. Murphy was taken to countyjail to await extradition to Georgia,
and was charged with the license violation and resisting arrest.
Three other occupants of the Buick from Tallahassee and Apopka,
FL were not charged.
The same officer stopped another west Florida motorist on the inter-
state late on August 31 and charged him with drunk driving.
Deputy McGauley said he first observed Christopher Wilson, 44,
of Pensacola make a u-turn on CR 229 before entering the eastbound
entrance ramp about 10:15. The 2004 Mercury driven by Mr. Wilson
weaved out of its proper lane both on the ramp and after it entered the
interstate.
The driver smelled strongly of alcohol and his motions were un-
steady. He refused to submit to field sobriety tests, or later at county
jail, to breath or blood tests.
Mr. Wilson was also ticketed for an improper u-turn and failure to
stay in a single lane.
Jeremy Jenkins, 25, of Glen St. Mary was arrested just after mid-
night September 5 for reckless driving and fleeing police in downtown
Macclenny.
Deputy McGauley said the 2003 Chevrolet pickup driven by Mr.

Portion of the BCHS student body on hand for the Obama speech on September 8.

Choice option on speech


Most students saw

Obama's address
The Baker County school district followed the
lead of the vast majority of others across the United
States and gave students and their parents the op-
portunity to opt out of President Obama's address
to school students on September 6.
"We were able to review the speech beforehand
and determined that what he said was appropriate
for students, that there was no political agenda,"
said School Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson ear-
lier that day.
"We also decided not to do any of the follow-up
activities they first wanted to do. Our curriculum
map is so set that we didn't feel we should interrupt
it."
Ms. Raulerson said later in the day a relatively
small number of parents contacted her and indi-
vidual schools to make sure their children had the
option. Still fewer were making sure their children
would be allowed to watch what was essentially an
inspirational message to students on a day when


many districts were experiencing their first day of
a new year.
Baker County schools have been open for two
weeks.
In the younger grades when the 28-minute ad-
dress that included a few questions conflicted with
lunch periods, principals opted for the latter rather
than disrupt cafeteria operations. The speech was
televised in classrooms in many cases, and Baker
County High School opted for an hour's delay so it
could be during fourth period. Principal Tom Hill
estimated 1100 students turned out for the viewing
in the gymnasium.
Superintendent Raulerson said following the
broadcast she was satisfied that the message was
appropriate.
"What he said he was going to say he did."
Initially, the White House wanted to include a
post-speech activity consisting of having students
pen letters to themselves asking how they can help
to improve schools and increase motivation. The
message was altered following criticism that such
activity smacked of totalitarian regimes and pushed
Mr. Obama's liberal political agenda.


Paver promises to correct job


A Raiford, FL man was told
September 2 he has until Octo-
ber 15 to correct a faulty driveway
asphalt paving job or he will be
charged with felony fraud.
Deputy Sgt. Thomas Dyal
said he conveyed the mandate to
Danny Jeffery following a com-
plaint of shoddy workmanship
by Virgil Manning, who in Au-
gust arranged for the resurfacing
of a driveway off Osteen Rd. near
Macclenny.
Mr. Manning called the sher-
iffs department last week after
he was unsuccessful getting Mr.
Jeffery and a paving crew back
onto his property. The complain-
ant told Sgt. Dyal he contracted
with the paver on August 10 to
re-surface the driveway with four
inches of asphalt for $3200.
According to police, a crew
showed up the same day, and


Mr. Manning said Mr. Jeffery,
described as the project foreman,
badgered him for the money so
he could purchase more materi-
als and pay the crew. The com-
plainant complied and withdrew
the money from the bank, and
when he returned home the crew
had left.
Mr. Manning said the fore-
man told him over the phone he
would return in 90 days to finish
the job after the asphalt had time
to cure.
Sgt. Dyal also noted in his
report that he spoke with an "as-
phalt consultant" at the Florida
Department of Transportation
who confirmed that asphalt does
not require curing. The same con-
sultant said the Manning drive-
way was subpar with pot holes
visible and varying thickness of
asphalt between 1-3 inches.


Contacted by phone this week,
Mr. Jeffery said the crew ceased
work because of rain that day,
and only a square section of the
driveway will have to be re-done.
He said he would meet the Octo-
ber deadline.

NEWS EDITOR

Expecting an exceptionally
good harvest this season? Afraid
all those fruits and vegetables
might go to waste? Then the
Baker Food Project wants to hear
from you.
The local effort organized by
Helene Guest and Mitch Rhoden
of the Samaritan Food Ministry
is asking that food growers hold
back a small portion of their
harvest 10 percent to be exact
- for its inaugural campaign, "o10
percent in 2010."
The Baker Food Project held
its first meeting in June with
participation from Macclenny
city officials, the county health
department and the Second Har-
vest food bank in Jacksonville,
where some of the local pantry's
donations originate.
"I wanted to see how we could
be more self-sustaining and nu-
tritious," explained Ms. Guest,
an avid gardener herself. She de-
scribed her love of "digging in the
dirt and growing things" as a la-
bor of love, and one that can help
sustain families in need during
these tough economic times.
"I hear a lot of growers say
they would grow more if they had
someone to give it to," Ms. Guest
said. "There are people with such
generous hearts and this gives
them another outlet."
Those wanting to participate
in the "o10 percent in 2010" pro-
gram can drop donations off at
the Samaritan food bank on US
90 between Macclenny and Glen
St. Mary, or just leave the excess
in the ground for volunteers to
pick and transport themselves.
"If they have an abundance,
we can put together a gleaning
group," said Mr. Rhoden. "A lot
of times farmers have the food
but they can't hire people to har-
vest it."
The Society of St. Andrews is
a volunteer crop-gleaning group
that could be tapped for assis-
tance, said Ms. Guest.
Though food donations tend
to grow during the holidays, this
time of year is particularly dif-
ficult. "The cabinets aren't bare,
but we're scraping the bottom,"
Mr. Rhoden said.
Falls crops like peas, corn,
squash and greens are just some


of the fresh foods the group hopes
to initially acquire through the
effort.
"Whatever's in season, we'll
take it," said Mr. Rhoden, a pas-
tor with United Christian Church
in Macclenny.
Growers can also begin plan-
ning their spring planting with
the food bank in mind.
"We figure there are a lot of
growers and farmers that just
aren't aware of the need," said
Ms. Guest.
"They don't even have to pick
it," added the pastor.

Getting kids 'hooked on books'

Literacy advocates launch effort to give them away free


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
At the beginning of last sum-
mer, Janice Bessinger, a former
4th and 5th grade teacher, helped
jump start an effort to encourage
reading and provide free books
to youngsters in the Sanderson
area.
She partnered with friend Dr.
Jean Dowling and their activities
evolved into a community project
which has been named Hooked
on Books.
"I'm pleased and surprised at
the level of interest and support
we've gotten from teachers, busi-
nesses and interested individu-
als," said Ms. Bessinger.
Hooked on Books will be hold-
ing its first book sale at the Mac-
clenny Woman's Club September
26. The group is collecting do-
nated works of fiction, non-fic-
tion, textbooks, manuals and any
other suitable reading material,
mostly at the adult level, to sell.
All proceeds will go to purchase
good quality children's books for
the Hooked on Books project.


One of the missions of the
project is to expand to the point
that it can provide free books to
children in waiting rooms of lo-
cal doctors and dentists, and the
Baker County Health Depart-
ment.
Last year, Ms. Bessenger and
Dr. Dowling visited the Central
Senior Center in Sanderson
where seniors meet during the
week for lunch. Since there is lit-
tle established social activity for
Sanderson children when school
is out, the center invited them to
start coming for lunch during the
summer.
"Jean and I were talking and it
occurred to us that the children
out there had no way to get to the
library for books to read in the
summer when school was out,"
said Ms. Bessinger. "The book-
mobile goes to Sanderson, but
only to the post office. Many kids
have no way to get there either."
They also discovered was that
even if children had access to the
library or bookmobile, many par-
ents weren't willing to have them
check out books because the chil-

dren often lost them. Lost books
have to be paid for.
The ladies met with Marva
Williams who helps manage
Central Center. They proposed
making books available to the
children who came for lunch and
Ms. Williams was very supportive
of the idea.
The ladies got busy asking
people to donate books. They also
put up some of their own money
to purchase them and started
scouting second hand stores like
Goodwill.
"Merchants were so generous.
Sometimes they simply gave us
books when we told them about
the project," said Ms. Bessenger.
For Dr. Dowling, Hooked on
Books is only the latest of her
life-long endeavors to help foster
literacy and learning. The former
teacher and retired head of the
former children's unit at North-
east Florida State Hospital un-
derstands the fundamental value
of reading.
"There are children that don't
necessarily have access to books
in their home environments,"
Dr. Dowling said. "They are so
surprised to learn the books are
theirs to keep."


Lty


~t.


The project has attracted oth-
er supporters such as forth grade
teacher Angela Callahan and first
grade teacher Charity Green-
wood, both passionate propo-
nents of literacy for children. Ms.
Callahan, who teaches at West-
side Elementary, has conducted
summer reading sessions for
children at the Macclenny Park.
The four women have begun
meeting weekly and brainstorm-
ing about new directions Hooked
on Books can be taken.
When she was in Macclenny
for the summer, Dr. Sonja Peter-
son-Lewis, a professor at Temple
University in Philadelphia, also
participated in the planning ses-
sions and donated materials.
"We now have the support of
the Baker County Rotary Club
and that's exciting," said Ms.
Bessinger. "Literacy is one of the
Rotary's main missions."
Anyone who wants to donate
books for the Hooked on Books
book sale should bring them to
the Women's Club on Fifth Street
on Friday, September 25.
The book sale will be the fol-
lowing day from lo0:00oo am until
4:00 pm. Please call Ms. Bessing-
er for information at 259-7884.

Soil pH testing key to good gardening


ALICIA LAMBORN
HORTICULTURE AGENT
Baker County Estension Service
Soil testing is an important
part of gardening but a part that
is often overlooked or deemed
unimportant. Having your soil
tested to determine the pH
(measure of acidity or alkalinity
of the soil) and extractable levels
of nutrients (level of nutrients
available to your plants) will ac-
tually take the guesswork out of
gardening.
Whether you are growing veg-
etables or other landscape plants,
soil pH is important because it
will ultimately affect the growth
and quality of the plants. It does
this byinfluencing the availability
of certain nutrients in the soil.
For example, plants may ex-
hibit nutrient deficiencies (or
toxicities) as a result of soil pH.
In acidic (sometimes referred to
as "sour") soils, the availability
of plant nutrients such as potas-
sium (K), phosphorus (P), cal-
cium (Ca), and magnesium (Mg)
is reduced, while the availability
of potentially toxic elements such
as aluminum (Al), iron (Fe), and
zinc (Zn) are increased.
In alkaline (sometimes re-
ferred to as "sweet") soils, the
availability of iron (Fe), manga-
nese (Mn), zinc (Zn), and boron


(B) are reduced.
So what does all of this mean?
There are exceptions, but most
fruits, vegetables and landscape
plants grow best when the soil
pH is between 5.8 and 6.5, which
is considered slightly acidic. (A
soil pH of 7.1 or above is consid-
ered alkaline.) This is because
the availability of all nutrients
is maximized within this range.
Applying lime to the soil may be
needed if the soil pH is below this
range to reduce soil acidity, sup-
ply nutrients to the soil (mainly
calcium), and bring micronutri-
ents into usable form.
If you have strongly alkaline
soils, lowering the pH is much
more difficult and there is no way
to permanently lower the pH of
soils formed from high amounts
of liming materials. Under these
circumstances, it is best to select
plants which are tolerant of high
pH conditions to avoid continu-
ing plant nutritional problems.
However, the soil pH can be
temporarily lowered by adding
elemental sulfur. Repeat appli-
cations are necessary, but care
must be taken since plants can
be injured or killed if too much
sulfur is applied or if it is added
too often. Therefore, never apply
more than five to ten pounds of
sulfur per looo1000 square feet per
application and always monitor


your plants.
"Acid-forming fertilizers"
containing sulfate (such as am-
monium sulfate) can also be used
to lower the soil pH, but not all
sulfate materials (e.g., calcium
sulfate, magnesium sulfate, po-
tassium sulfate) will acidify soil.
Organic materials such as manure
and peat can also help reverse the
effects of alkaline soil pH on some
landscape plants but since these
materials decompose slowly, an-
nual or semi-annual applications
are usually necessary.
Before attempting to make any
changes to your soil pH, be sure
to have your soil tested. A soil test
will determine your soil's pH and
tell you how much (if any) lime
should be applied. A soil fertility


test will also give you advice on
how to fertilize your plants for
maximum growth and health.
If your soil test results indicate
that a drastic change in pH is
needed, it is usually best to re-test
the following season to make sure
your efforts have been successful.
Soil testing is available through
the University of Florida's Soil
Testing Laboratory and the Baker
County Extension Office located
at 1025 West Macclenny Avenue
(Hwy 90).
Stop by today to pick up a soil
testing kit. Results take approxi-
mately two weeks and you should
contact the extension office at
259-3520 to discuss results or if
you have any questions.

Touting Scouts to the Rotarians


Believes benefits to young men are immeasurable


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Mark Gibson, leader of Boy Scout troop 304 in Waycross, Georgia,
was the speaker at the weekly Baker County Rotary Club meeting Sep-
tember 2.
Mr. Gibson spoke of the merits of scouting and the beneficial influ-
ence it has on young men who get involved with the organization. He
also shared some background on the history of the Boy Scouts which
celebrates its looth anniversary in 2010.
"Scouting is a proven way of teaching boys the correct path to be-
coming responsible men who revere God and respect other people," he
said. "And it gets them away from the TV and other bad influences."
According to Mr. Gibson, scouting helps instill many qualities such
as independence, confidence, creativity, respect, responsibility, coop-
eration and leadership skills.
It provides opportunities for experiences contemporary young men,
particularly inner city youth, may not have otherwise, such as camping,
boating, fishing and hiking.
"That's where the summer camp experience plays a vital role," he
said. "Some families simply don't have the money for such things, but in
scouting no boy is ever turned away because of inability to pay fees."
Mr. Gibson participated as a leader at a camp in Thomasville, Geor-
gia this past summer. He witnessed firsthand what scouting is uniquely
designed to achieve.
"One of the junior leaders was a 16-year-old who had a serious
speech impediment. It was very difficult for him, but in the camp set-
ting he was in his element. Being involved in scouting empowered him
to challenge himself to take on that role."
Mr. Gibson shared some statistics with Rotarians:
One in four boys are involved in scouting
3 to 4 percent of Boy Scouts attain the rank of Eagle Scout
90 percent of men who become astronauts are Eagle Scouts
Sam Walton, Neil Armstrong, Bill Gates, John F. Kennedy, Bill
Clinton, David Bowie, Jimmie Buffet and Steven Spielberg were all Boy
Scouts.
"This year Mr. Spielberg helped establish a new category of merit
badge in cinematography," said Mr. Gibson.
Mr. Gibson became an eagle scout at age 17. His brothers were all
involved in scouting, as are his nephews. He is hopeful his sons will
follow in the same path.
"I would encourage every boy to get involved in scouting. I've seen

firsthand the powerful positive influence it can have."
Today, women are often scout leaders and headmasters of troops.
Mr. Gibson gives them a lot of recognition and credits his own mother
with his achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
"I was interested in girls and other things by that time and it was
distracting. My mother just kept kicking my fanny about it and I did it,
thanks in part to her," he said.
According to Mr. Gibson, it is most beneficial for young men to enter
scouting when they are boys. Entering scouting as a teenager, a boy has
less tendency to participate as fully and receive the maximum level of
benefit.
"At that point, once they smell the fumes (perfume, car exhaust) it's
harder to keep them focused," he said with a laugh.
Mr. Gibson is an executive with Gibson-McDonald Furniture, head-
quartered in Waycross.

Netters post win


JOE DARASKEVICH
SPORTS WRITER

The Lady Wildcat volleyball
team entered the regular-season
win column September 3 with a
3-0 (25-10, 25-13, 25-3) home
trouncing over Interlachen.
BCHS was winless in the first
month of the season last year,
so notching an early victory was
very important for this year's
success.
"The team's pretty optimistic
right now," said head coach Chris
Armoreda. "There's a completely
different feel in the air, and the
team is much more confident this
season."
After losing a close match to
West Nassau in the Pre-Season
Classic, Armoreda was concerned
with his team's ability to finish
off opponents. But finishing was
not the problem last Thursday as
Jordan Hand served 16 consecu-
tive points in the third game to
cement the victory over Inter-
lachen.
"She was definitely the back-
breaker that night," said Ar-
moreda.
Hand was not alone as the
four senior leaders contributed,
along with freshman outside
hitter Kayla Holland. Armoreda


believes in starting the best team
possible, so Holland sees time on
the court despite her age.
"If you can do the job, you
can do the job," said Armoreda.
"She's got a good volleyball sense
and she's one of the most consis-
tent players on the team."
BCHS is 1-1 at home this year,
but will have to learn to win on
the road as they finish September
with seven of eight matches on
the road.
The Lady Wildcats host
Baldwin September 15 at 6:oo
pm. The contest will be the first
game against an opponent from
the northern half of the district.
The district was shuffled during
the off-season and only matches
against the northern division will
count in the district record.
The new district includes Bald-
win, West Nassau, Bishop Snyder
and Baker County. Keystone, In-
terlachen, Crescent City, Union
County and Bradford County in
the south.


Benefit volleyball
A benefit leisure volleyball
tournament will be held at the
courts in north Macclenny on
September 12 starting at 10:00
that morning.
There is a $50 entry fee per
team, and the proceeds go to a
fund for Rodney (Scott) Davis,
who is battling colon cancer.
The event is sponsored by
Dinkins Church. Refreshments
will be available.

Trinity will be seeking revenge


in Cats' opening home contest


The Baker High Wildcats will face a tough test this
weekend with the Trinity Conquerors in town for the
season's first home game. Don't expect the walkover
from last season when the Wildcats spanked Trinity
in a 42-0 shutout.
Coach Bobby Johns doesn't believe his team will
have as easy a time as last year, or for that matter
last week against Crescent City.
"I think they got embarrassed last year when we
played them," said coach Johns. "I know they're
hungry for payback."
The Conquerors opened their season in fine fash-
ion on Friday with a 48-21 win over Episcopal. Like
the Wildcats at Crescent City, the Conquerors let the
Eagles roll up an early lead and then came back to
amass 34 unanswered points in the victory.
Though comparing victories is an "apples and or-
anges" situation, the size of the victory is an indica-
tion that Coach Verlon Dorminey has some athletes
on his team.
Ironically, it was feast or famine last year for the
Conquerors. They were either beating teams by 30
or more points on average or losing by a similar


Weight 'dividend'


FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD

One thing was clear to me
where the Wildcat game was con-
cerned on Friday night.
Despite all the miscues and
turnovers as the game went on,
what made the difference was all
the time spent in the weight room
over the summer.
All summer long Coach Bobby
Johns had his players at the
BCHS gym working on condition-
ing, and as the game progressed
it became obvious. Early in the
game the teams looked pretty
evenly matched, but as early as
the second quarter it was clear
that the Raiders were being worn
down by the Wildcats.
As the game progressed, the
Cats pushed the Crescent City
defense around and won the
battle at the line of scrimmage.
It wasn't a particularly hot night,
but it was muggy and the turf was
spongy so it took a lot out of the
players. By the second half, the


battle up front was clearly being
won by BCHS.
Johns and his staff push condi-
tioning every year and he claims
that he doesn't want anybody
beating up on the Wildcats in the
fourth quarter. It certainly didn't
happen against Crescent City.
I am glad college football is
back. My wife and sons took in
the Gator game at the Swamp.
You might have seen them on the
television they were the ones
in orange and blue. As I write this
I am watching Craig Yarborough
and the Seminoles (see related
story) play the Hurricanes. The
Noles are up by a touchdown in
the fourth quarter and I am hold-
ing my breath.
There were a couple of big
upsets on opening weekend, the
biggest of which was BYU over
Oklahoma. The most surpris-
ing game was William and Mary
beating Virginia. The two schools
are only about an hour away. In
soccer they call a game like that a
"local derby" and there is no way
to predict those kind of games.
It's going to be a fun season.


margin. Trinity went 5-4 last fall and that was not a
record that satisfied Dorminey, the fans or the Con-
querors.
The Conquerors started the season ranked loth
in the Florida Times-Union power poll. The Wild-
cats on the other hand did not crack the top ten.
Perhaps that was a reflection of their poor showing
in the Kickoff Classic, but it is not a slight that will be
lost on Coach Johns or his staff.
They'll want to show the media as well as the
Conquerors they not only belonged in the poll, but
considering the shellacking they gave Trinity in the
Conqueror's home stadium last year, they should
have been ranked well above their opponent.
Trinity's main weapon is Andre Buie, who rushed
for 205 yards and two touchdowns on Friday. They
also had a 92-yard kickoff return for a score from
speedy Rashad Knight and a 55-yard interception
return for a score by Ahmad Christian.
The key to the game should be stopping Buie like
the Cats did last year, and avoid some of the costly
errors and turnovers that plagued the Wildcats in
Crescent City.


Opponent

scoreboard
Here's a look at how the
Wildcat opposition did this past
weekend starting with the Trinity
Conquerors.
This Friday's opponent came
from behind to score 34 unan-
swered points and beat Episco-
pal 48-21. Anthony Buie had 205
yards rushing in the win.
It was not as happy a show
down the road in Starke. Brad-
ford County lost to an explosive
Keystone Heights team 35-12.
The Baldwin Indians were
shocked by Eagles View 36-28.
The difference was the passing
by the Warriors.
Turnovers doomed the Raines
Vikings in their loss to the pow-
erful Jackson Tigers. The Vikings
had five turnovers and Jackson
capitalized for a 27-0 victory.
Suwannee County got off
on a winning start with a 28-7
cross border win over Hamilton
County.
Alachua Santa Fe had an
evening to forget with powerful
Newberry. The Indians handed
the Raiders a 41-point loss.
The Apaches of Arlington
Country Day lost 48-6 to Yulee.

Wildcats outmuscle Crescent Raiders


After a slow start,


post a 47-7 victory
BOB GERARD I SPORTS
reporter@bakercountypress.com
After a shaky start, the Baker High Wildcats erased all
memories of their Kickoff Classic struggle by defeating
Crescent City 47-7 on the road in the opener for both teams
September 4.
It was not a pretty start as the Cats and Raiders combined
to turn the ball over six times in the first half.
"We made mistakes early in the ball game," said Head
Coach Bobby Johns. "We had to regroup ourselves and we
couldn't lose confidence in what we were doing."
The Cats settled down and despite soggy conditions
started to impose their physical dominance on the Raid-
ers as the game progressed. The Wildcats manhandled the
Raiders in the trenches, and after giving up an early score to
Crescent City they took control of the game and scored 47 Junior William Wheeler and another
unanswered points.
Coach Bobby Johns had made a lot of changes in the lineup that took the field against
West Nassau. Mardreakus Ford lined up behind center Terry Givens. Ford managed the
game well and fullback Rueben Jackson and tailback Harold Moore made a good combi-
nation of power and speed.
The opening drive looked promising as BCHS went deep into Raider territory behind
Jackson and Moore, but soon turned the ball over. It didn't take long for Crescent City to
return the favor with Klate Duval picking off a Steven Baker pass.
Both teams kept handing the ball back to one another before Baker shocked the Cats
with a pass to Mark Dock in the end zone. Dock made a one-handed circus catch, pulling
the ball down for the score.
If it did anything, the Raiders' 7-0 lead seemed to wake up the Wildcats. From then on,
they stopped turning over the ball and got serious.
"Our kids have been through a lot of adversity over the last few years," coach Johns
said. "We weren't going to let something like that get us down."
The Cats drove down the field as the sloppy first quarter came to an end, and Ford
found Tymachee Givens for the score. Kendrick Sampson booted the extra point to tie the
score.
After that, the Raiders seemed to deflate like a balloon and all the off-season condition-
ing kicked in for BCHS. As the second period progressed, BCHS looked stronger than the
Raiders and pushed them around at the point of attack and open holes.

On a relaxing Labor Day
when most Americans were en-
joying an overdue day-off from
work, Baker County native and
Florida State defensive end Craig
Yarbrough was finally given his
chance to get some work done in
a college football game.
Yarbrough started on defense
for the first time in his career
as the Seminoles' opened their
season against downstate rival
Miami on national television and
in front of 81,ooo fans at Doak
Campbell Stadium on Monday
night. Yarbrough played at defen-
sive end, linebacker and quarter-
back at BCHS, but an MCL injury
almost ended a football career
that started back in the Pee Wee
ranks. He was happy to help his
high school team by playing on
both sides of the ball, but has al-
ways preferred defense.
"I kind of played quarterback
because I had to," said Yarbrough.
"I really like a little contact, hon-
estly. I just love hitting."
Yarbrough's Seminoles lost the


opportunities to hit Hurricanes
throughout the night.
"I think there will definitely be
some jitters before the first snap,"
Yarbrough said before the game.
"But when the ball is in play I'll
just be doing what the coaches
have trained me to do."
If there were jitters during the
game, Yarbrough didn't let the
television cameras notice. He was
part of a third down Seminole
dog-pile that stopped Miami on
the goal line in the third quarter
and then had a solo tackle later in
the game on a first down run.
Yarbrough graduated from
BCHS in 2006, so he never got a
chance to play for current football
coach Bobby Johns. However,
Johns did help get Yarbrough's
foot in the door at FSU.
"When I first got here he [Yar-
brough] was looking for a place
to play and I had a really good
connection with Jody Allen who's
in charge of walk-ons at Florida
State," said Coach Johns. "I made
a phone call to Jody and told him
about Craig. He invited Craig to


A bad snap on a punt gave the Cats the
ball deep in Raider territory and Ford used
his speed to score. The PAT gave the Cats a
lead they would not relinquish.
The 14-7 game was too close for comfort
at the half, but BCHS came out of the locker
room fired up and ready to take it to Cres-
cent City. They didn't waste much time.
After the defense stopped the Raiders'
opening drive, Harold Moore took the punt
and raced 49 yards for the score. Sampson
made it 21-7.
After that the floodgates opened. Ford
intercepted a pass by Baker and on the
next drive Moore kept up his tough run-
ning with a 48-yard score. After the score
a scuffle ended with Dock, Crescent City's
top receiver getting ejected. The PAT was
no good and the Cats led 27-7.
It just kept getting worse for Crescent
City. Another bad snap to the punter gave
PHOTO BY JOE DARASKEVICH BCHS the ball on the two yard line and
er Wildcat defender pursue the Raider quarterback. Moore scored his third touchdown to put
BCHS up 33-7.
Sampson replaced Ford at the quarter-
back position and found Darvin Ruise in the corner of the end zone for a score.
The final score came off a two-yard rush by John Ford.
The Cats had 350 yards rushing on 45 carries while holding Crescent City to under 1oo
yards in total offense. Moore notched the first of what will likely be several loo-yard plus
games this season.
The Wildcats will return home this Friday, September 11, against Trinity Christian.
After a two-hour drive south to start the regular season in Crescent City, the Wildcats will
be glad to keep the bus in the parking lot for the first time this year.
"We didn't have anywhere to dress when we got down their last week," said Coach
Johns. "So it kind of gets you out of your game plan. But I thought our kids responded well
and did a great job playing on those field conditions."
Coach Johns is hoping for better weather this week at home so he can open up the
offense a little against Trinity. Although running the option and airing the ball out are
important to his offense, Coach Johns knows intensity will be key to winning on Friday
night.
"We usually play pretty good at home," said coach Johns. "I'm just concerned they're
going to be more motivated than we are."
The game starts at 7:30 pm at Memorial Stadium.

nd now things
here."


Although it was his first de-
fensive start, Monday night was
not Yarbrough's first time on a
collegiate football field. He got
an opportunity to play on spe-
cial teams during the Seminole's
bowl victory over Wisconsin last
season.
"Craig really scratched and
clawed to get to where he is to-
day," said his father Lynn Yar-
brough. "Hopefully he can stay
healthy and keep playing at this
level for a while."
Health is a concern, but Yar-
brough still has plenty of eligibil-
ity. He enrolled at Tallahassee
Community College in the fall
of '06, and was grey-shirted that
year. He joined the Seminoles in
'07 as a red shirt, so although he
graduated from BCHS in '06, he
is now just a red shirt sophomore
at FSU.
"He was so young coming into
college that coaches felt it would
be a good idea to grey shirt him at
TCC," said Lynn Yarbrough. "He
had just turned 18 in June, so he
was pretty young for his class."
Craig has worked hard to get

against

team that
played so Coach Bobby Johns

against West Nassau last week
was nowhere to be found. I hope
they never show up again.

near the type of football team we
will face along the road this sea-
son.
I will say this it was one of
the most physical games our kids
have ever played. We hit people
harder than we probably have
in a long time and by the second
half, we were able to wear them
down and control the game.
This week we will face a Trin-
ity team that will be hungry for
revenge. After last year's game,
there is no doubt we will be on
the field with a highly motivated
team bent on proving that we are
not the team we hope we are.
It will be a war, without a
doubt, and I hope our kids realize
the effort it will take to win. This

of our season and we need all of

"I got where I have because of

said Yarbrough. "My family is a

my Lord.
Though he's now playing foot-
