Mine near I-10 firs


DuPont appeal expected

to county commission


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
S hort one of its five board
members, the Land Planning
Agency [LPA] was split 2-2 the
evening of October 8 on whether to
allow DuPont to continue mining in
the sequence it has planned. A sec-
ond vote to let operations continue
in 2010 as long as the area adja-
cent to Interstate to is mined next
- ended up 3-1.
An appeal of that stipulation to
the Baker County Commission is
expected later this month, as Du-
Pont's mining plan calls for the next
phase to start much farther south,
on a tract owned by Cummer Land
Trust.
That area is just north of the
operation's current location in the
southeastern corner of the county,
southwest of 228. The plan doesn't
call for moving north into the tract
immediately south of the interstate
and owned by LaBuena Farms and
the Knabb family until 2018.
In preparation for moving onto
the Cummer tract next year, DuPont
needed a special exception from the
LPA because mining is not permitted


under the area's -
agricultural land
use designation.
DuPont has secured
mineral rights to 4269 acres con-
taining the Cummer and LaBuena
Farms tracts and has been extract-
ing titanium and other minerals
here since the 198os. At issue last
week was whether DuPont should
mine the Cummer tract first or be-
gin with the LaBuena Farms portion
and work its way back south.
Although LaBuena Farms would
benefit sooner from mining royalties
and future land sales if its tract was
mined first, the corporation's Presi-
dent James Knabb said that's also in
the county's best interest.
"It's beneficial to the county to do
it in this manner due to the taxes,"
he said, alluding to additional prop-
erty tax revenues that could be gen-
erated once the land is developed.
"This will get our property mined
and we can get going," said Mr.
Knabb.
The LPA board also heard from
DuPont's site manager, David Pod-
meyer, about the company's $50
million in regional economic impact,
the operation's 225 employees and
$8 million paid in taxes, mostly to


Bak-
er
County.
He said
DuPont's
2002 contract
with LaBuena
Farms contains the
same mining plan
proposed last week -
south to north. The plan
is also under review by
the US Bureau of Mines.
It wasn't until 2005,
when the company didn't
expect to be successful in
obtaining rights to the Cum-
mer tract, that an alternate
north-to-south approach was
put in place.
Per its contract with
LaBuena Farms, DuPont
sent the landowner a
letter last December

Larry Burkins says he's al-
ways loved small towns, and
now he's ready to do business
in one.
The third-generation "car
man," whose father and grand-
father worked for General Mo-
tors, took ownership of the
former Pineview Chevrolet at
midnight on September 23 af-
ter several arduous months of
negotiations with former owner
Ray Odom and General Motors,
itself in the throes of re-struc-
turing through bankruptcy.
"Initially, GM couldn't enter
into an agreement [for change
of ownership] because it was
re-organizing. We had a pack-
age put together on our end
back in May, and the dealership
had survived two cuts [when
GM slashed its dealer list], so
all this took some time," said
Mr. Burkins, who has spent his
entire post-college career in the
car business.
The fact that Pineview sur-
vived the dealership cuts, de-
spite the slumping economy
and credit tightening of recent
years, was positive news for the
local business climate. Losing

Cements

daily rate

to house

inmates

JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
For more than four months
now the county has been paying
the Baker Correctional Devel-
opment Corporation (BCDC)
$84.72 per dayto house each lo-
cal inmate at the sheriffs com-
plex, even though a contract for
such services didn't exist.
That changed the evening
of October 6 when the Baker
County Commission approved
a six-page agreement with
BCDC outlining detention stan-
dards, payment expectations
and other responsibilities of the
corporation. It also included
provisions for the county to pay
three months in advance to save
2 percent.
Otherwise, a roughly
$262,000 payment for an as-
sumed 1oo inmates is due at the
beginning of each month. Pay-
ments will be reconciled with
actual inmate counts at the end
of the month and any differ-
ence from the assumed count
will then either be refunded to
the county or paid to the BCDC
within four days.
The daily rate at the new fa-
cility is almost twice what the
county paid in years past, when
inmates were held at the old jail
behind the courthouse.
The increase, as well as the
short period between when the
contract arrived earlier that day
and the vote the same evening,
led to criticism from some local
residents.
Sharon Padgett said she ob-
tained a copy of the agreement
only two hours before the meet-
ing and didn't have much time
to review it. Another attendee,
Mike Yarbrough, likened such
swiftness to recent Congres-
sional action in the nation's
capitol.
"They're jamming bills down
our throat without Congress
reading them," he said before
asking commissioners to further
examine the contract to ensure
it would benefit the public.
Commissioners had, how-
ever, reviewed the document.
Commissioner Alex Rob-
inson displayed a highlighted
copy while other commission-
ers pointed out typos and made
other minor language changes.
The vote to adopt the agree-
ment was unanimous.
Mr. Yarbrough and Ms.
Padgett also urged commission-
ers to sever ties with the BCDC
and return to housing inmates
at the former facility for $45 per
day per prisoner.
"I'd appreciate it if we sepa-
rate ways and go back to the old
jail," Ms. Padgett said.
Plans are underway to reha-
bilitate the 13o-bed facility with
a new roof and other electrical,

plumbing and security improve-
ments to once again house local
inmates, explained County Man-
ager Joe Cone.
The county submitted an ap-
plication in August for a $416,000
grant that's expected to partially
fund the project. A price estimate
for the project came in at more
than $900,000 last spring.
The grant application period
ends October 15 and Mr. Cone
said he's confident the cash has
been earmarked for Baker Coun-
ty.
"The plan is to move ahead
with that," he said.
The grant requires an environ-
mental impact study, but grants
coordinator Maurice Postal is at-
tempting to secure an exemption
for the detention center project
on the grounds it's not new con-
struction, but renovations.
An architect has begun plans
for the roofing portion as well.
Will Sexton, filling in for law
partner Terry Brown as county
attorney, also assured the board
and the public that per the con-
tract, both the county and the
BCDC can terminate the agree-
ment without notice to the other
party, and that it doesn't obligate
the county to place its inmates at
the new jail.
"That gives Baker County the
protection I think we need," said
Commissioner Michael Crews.
In other business that eve-
ning:
The commission filled two
vacancies on the Land Planning
Agency.
Board members Jack Baker
Jr. and Derrick Harvey recently
resigned. Their replacements are
Jesse Davis, a medical benefits
consultant, and Allison Brough-

clenny.

tract for management of the

Bomb


threat by


a patient

The state attorney's office will
decide whether to prosecute a
patient at Northeast Florida State
Hospital who called in a bomb
threat to the clerk of the courts
office at the courthouse.
The call was received just be-
fore 9:oo the morning of October
7, and the patient, age 24, identi-
fied herself before saying she in-
tended to blow up the sprawling
mental hospital south of Mac-
clenny.
Deputy Randy Davis ques-
tioned the woman, who was
brought to the administration
building by hospital security
staff. She freely admitted making
the call, and the deputy quoted
her as saying, "I called in a bomb
because I want to blow up this
hospital. I want to kill myself and
everyone in it."
Staff members said they
searched the woman's quarters
and found nothing that could
be used to construct a bomb.
The deputy said he forwarded a
complaint instead of arresting
the woman because of her men-
tal state, including the suicide
threat.
Making a false bomb threat is
a second-degree felony.

SHERIFF CHALLENGES 'MISINFORMATION'


While on hand for the county commis-
sion's consideration of an agreement with
the BCDC for housing local inmates, Sher-
iff Joey Dobson sought to dispel what he
called misinformation being spread in the
community about the new jail's develop-
ment and funding.
"There's been so much misinformation
on this project that people don't know [the
truth]," he said. More specifically he men-
tioned rumors that BCDC's governing board
members are paid and that they purchased
the bonds that built the sheriff's complex.
"They haven't even gotten a meal out of
it," said Mr. Dobson.
Former school superintendent Paula
Barton was named to the BCDC board that
evening. She replaced Ricky Davis.
The sheriff traced the history of the
project, saying it was prompted by the de-
teriorating condition of the old jail, built in


The board also accepted
three bids $6576 for a new
AC unit and duct work at the Ag
Center from GAC Mechanical of
Jacksonville, $45 (per toilet per
month) for furnishing and ser-
vicing portable toilets from Pit
Stop Portable Restrooms of Glen
St. Mary and $195 for monthly
pest control services at 18 county
properties from Massey Services
Inc. of Ponte Vedra.
The board also rejected
the sole bid for lawn services at
the courthouse and library and
decided to use inmate labor in-
stead.

1975, and finding a way to replace it with-
out using taxpayer dollars.
"Once this project gets going, the county
commission will receive revenue," he said.
"In 22 years, the county will own the facility
at no charge."
He pointed to the success of the Glades
County jail after which the facility north of
Macclenny was modeled. It has more than
470 inmates and charges the same roughly
$85 per day rate. "Total that up when you
get home and see what it is," said the sher-
iff.
It's more than $40,000 a day.
Sheriff Dobson also reminded those in
the audience that inmates originating here
belong to the community.
"Those are your inmates; not Joey's in-
mates," he said. "We put them in there to
protect you."

I kept calling across the parking

someone to come and bring me in, Kelley I

just too far away
for anyone to
hear me. All day
long, every day,
I stare at the

dream of some-

return me to
the store. It only
takes a minute.
I don't understand. I'm a good cart. I always did
my job, never complained, kept my wheels clean,
and this is the thanks I get.
People walk and drive by all the time, but they
just ignore me. I've been rained on so hard I nearly
drowned and suffered through winds so strong I
would have been blown over if I hadn't been next

Birds build their nests in these trees and poop
all over me. Then their eggs hatch and their babies
poop on me, too.
Then, there is the absolute indignity of being used
as a trash can. I'm not a trash can! Do I look like a

Here's the ironic thing and it really rusts my rails.
People can stop long enough to dump their food
trash in my basket, but can't take a few moments to
wheel me back to my store so I can do the job I was
created for.
At first I was only mildly aggravated when I was
left out here. I thought it would be just a tempo-
rary inconvenience and a store employee would be
along shortly to get me, but that never happened. I
watched in disbelief as other carts were rounded up
from the parking lot night after night. The hot, hu-

Dear Editor:
I watched a telecast on WJXT Channel 4 recently featuring meteo-
rologist George Winterling. He spoke of his career from the early days
of using magic markers and paper for weather diagrams to computers,
his back-to-back ordeal with prostate cancer, bypass surgery and con-
gestive heart failure.
He was interesting, kind and pleasant; as I always remembered him
while he did the Jacksonville area weather. But it was at the end of the
interview when George was asked to lead a prayer that I learned about
his faith, values and patriotism.
George leaned forward in his chair, closed his eyes and began to
pray. Immediately I was riveted George Winterling praying on tele-
vision. He was articulate, simply unassuming, steadily finding the heart
of his thoughts.
I have heard many prayers (and prayed many) but this was more
than just a dutiful prayer. It was unpretentious, non-judgemental, nor
was George preaching at an audience or paying lip service to God.
The prayer George Winterling prayed was one of love for God, love
of fellow man, and reverence for "our inalienable rights as stated in the
U.S. Constitution."
Between the lines one saw what George is made of and the message
resonates a clear conviction that I know many of us in Baker County
share. God grant us all strength to stand strong in our faith and to per-
severe the rights that make our country so wonderful.

Fearing the Mayan calendar


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD

People will sometimes ask me
how I think of what I'm going to
write in my column each week.
As is painfully obvious by read-
ing my columns, I usually don't
agonize over my topics until the
perfect one emerges.
I do, however, wander around
muttering, "I wonder what I'm
going to write about?" Some-
times I'll even come right out
and say, "I really need a column
idea" in hopes that somebody
within a two block radius will
say something like, "You need to
write about the Mayan calendar


or Karaoke at Calendars."
So, that's how it happens.
I was watching football this
weekend which considering
the results was similar to hitting
myself on the head with a 2-by-
4 and I encountered a truly
scary commercial for the movie
"2012."
In this movie, the world was
literally ripping apart, with major
landmarks falling and the ground
opening up. It was very exciting
and pushed the edge of special
effects.
The point of this movie, I sup-
pose, is the Mayan calendar. It
predicts the end of the world in
2012.
Maybe. Or maybe not.
At any rate that's when the
Mayan calendar stops, so New
Age types figure that it means the

end of the world.
Well, I'm not so sure. It could
just mean the end of the Mayans,
who, come to think of it, haven't
been around as a group for a
while now as it is. There are still
a few of them in Mexico and they
are getting pretty fed up with all
the questions about their ancient
calendars.
It seems that they can't read
'em either.
So I consulted Bob's Big Book
ofRevisionist History, and came
up with this answer. Page 327
claims that it isn't so much that
the Mayan calendar said that the
world would end in 2012, but
that the Mayans would change
calendars.
It isn't clear historically
whether they planned to shift to
calendars featuring cats with big
eyes and cute sayings like, "Hang
in there, it's almost the weekend,"
or one featuring Sports Illustrat-
ed swimsuit model Heidi Klum in
Mayan ceremonial bikinis.
The book doesn't make that
clear because on page 328, Her-
nando Cortez shows up with his
Conquistadors and the Mayans
are suddenly busy dying and be-
ing slaves.
Maybe that movie "2012"
clears things up.
We certainly get a little crazy
about our sports heroes.
I watched some of the ridicu-
lous hype leading up to the Flor-
ida/LSU game on Saturday and
the question that kept rearing its
ugly head every 35 seconds was,
"Will he or won't he?"
If you don't know what I'm
talking about you have either
been living in a cave staring at
your Mayan calendar or you don't
care a fig for football.
The rest of us living in this
wired society know exactly of
whom I write.
Tim Tebow. Will he start the
game or won't he?


Tebow, I remind you in case
you just emerged from that cave,
suffered a concussion in the Ken-
tucky game, and it was the most
heavily reported concussion in
the history of the world.
It was a scary moment when
the Heisman Trophy winner lay
still on the turf in Lexington.
Then the cameras followed him
every step of the way off the field,
on the sidelines, onto the cart
where he proceeded to throw
up into a plastic bag (rumor has
it that the bag will soon make it
to Ebay), and into the tunnel and
ambulance.
For the next two weeks he was
the subject of intense scrutiny.
Would he play or wouldn't he?
I consulted Bob's Big Book of
Sports Predictions for the an-
swer and found the answer on
page 12.
Are you nuts? Of course he'll
play.
What's a concussion to this
guy? He'd play if his head were
hanging on by a chin strap. That's
what he does. He bangs into peo-
ple.
Gator fans were holding their
collective breaths all day long.
The blogosphere was alive with
speculation until he was cleared
by doctors. They exhaled when
he stepped out onto the field.
It was now safe to begin com-
plaining about the game like
true sports fans. Why were they
running the ball so much? Why
weren't they running the ball
enough? Why was Tebow scram-
bling when he could hurt his
head? Why wasn't Tebow scram-
bling? Why was he throwing the
ball? Why wasn't he throwing the
ball? Why weren't they beating
LSU by 35 points?
All was right with the world.

OPINION


Pushed to the side abandoned


Sa long winter freezing my frame off
A K f out here under these trees.
There was some talk a while
CH back among a fringe group about
CH organizing a strike to raise public
awareness of this problem. They
nnigan were going to call themselves the
National Orga-
nization for the
Ethical Treat-
ment of Shop-
n aping Carts.
That's when
we heard that
the primary
organizer had
been left out
in the park-
ing lot during
the Christmas
shopping rush.
She rolled down
an embankment
and ended up in
a drainage pond.
She stayed there
for weeks with
her legs and wheels sticking up in the air. How em-
barrassing.
What really bent my bars was the snooty Winn
Dixie carts that were left out here one afternoon not
long ago.
I was so glad to see my own kind that I immedi-
ately started talking away. They looked down on me
as if I were a babbling idiot and refused to acknowl-
edge me. Wouldn't even say hello.
I couldn't believe it. Of all the nerve. What if our
roles had been reversed? Didn't they realize it could
just have easily been them stuck out there under
these trees.
But nooo.
They stood there, all superior in their flashy
black-and-red Winn Dixie duds. I was so furious, I'd
have shoved them out in front of a delivery truck, if
only I could have managed it.
They were retrieved that evening, while I was left
behind once again. I can't blame the boy from Winn
Dixie. It's not his job to pick up Dollar General carts.
But it still hurt my feelings.
What does the future hold? I don't know. I'm not
asking for much, just a helping hand. I want to go to
work again and pull my own weight. I want to con-
tribute, to make a difference. You can understand
that. I have my pride, you know.
Is anybody listening?

notifying it of the company's in-
tention to begin mining within a
year. Mr. Knabb said that led to
clear-cutting hundreds of acres
of timber, for which LaBuena
Farms received compensation.
The discussion's emphasis on
deals made between LaBuena
Farms and DuPont raised a red
flag for the board's attorney
Will Sexton, who cautioned LPA
members to focus on what's in
the county's best interest.
"Whatever is going on between
them on the lease ... is not some-
thing the county should involve
themselves in. It's something the
county should stay out of," he
said.
Mr. Sexton also spoke about
potential impacts of the board's
decision, should the matter end
up in court. It would be easier to
defend granting the special ex-
ception without conditions than
granting it with them, he said.
The county's attorney further
advised the board that if a condi-
tional approval was granted, that
members should explain why the
county would be better off due to
the condition or why it helps fur-
ther the county's land use plan.
Not long thereafter, board
members asked Mr. Podmeyer
about the additional costs asso-
ciated with changing the mining
plan to move north to south. He
said it would mean seven addi-
tional months of operation and
millions in extra expenses.
Further discussion moved
to how soon the LaBuena tract
would be ready for development
under the current mining plan.

begin in 2018 plus two more

Dealership changes hands...


((From page 1
His first priority is an expand-
ed service department catering
to all brands of cars and trucks,
not just those built by General
Motors.
"We're going to develop what
we'll call a Hometown Service
Center," he said. "I believe mon-
ey follows a good service depart-
ment, no matter where the deal-
ership is."
Mr. Burkins managed to re-
tain the former Pineview service
techs and more will be employed
as the department expands. Two
on the sales staff, which had been
greatly depleted as the car busi-
ness went into a tailspin, have left
since the ownership change. Jack
Deford, a longtime sales manager
who a decade ago was Pineview's
general manager, is back.
Mr. Odom, who had been
seeking a franchise buyer for
some time, originally owned
Pineview with Dr. Gary Dopson
and the late Bobby Dugger. He
and Dr. Dopson, current mayor
of Macclenny, split off in 2000
when Mr. Odom took the deal-
ership and Dr. Dopson the now
defunct Pineview Golf Course.
Mr. Burkins was an All-Amer-
ican football player at Ouachita


Baptist University in Arkansas
before a leg injury stymied his
prospects in the 1989 NFL draft.
He went to college on an ath-
letic scholarship after graduating
from Wolfson in Jacksonville,
where he lettered in football and
wrestling.
Since 1990 he worked for two
of the area's largest dealership
chains, Coggin and Scott-McRae.
Last year he left his post as chief
operating officer of Duval Honda
after 16 years and took time off
to purchase a farm in Arkansas
near the hometown of his wife,
Stacey.
They have three daughters
and live on the St. Johns River
near Orangedale.
Darryl Register, executive di-


rector of the Baker County Cham-
ber of Commerce, is among the
local business interests relieved
that the area has retained its new
car dealership.
"Larry's done some things al-
ready that will make it a stronger,
more viable dealership," said Mr.
Register. "He understands the
small town and he understands
what it will take to be successful
in a small, but growing commu-
nity."

The 'Silver Screen ..


(( From page 1
said. "At the Ritz they were only
shown in the summer because
the building had no heat. To the
best of my recollection, it didn't
have bathrooms, either.
"It was primitive by today's
standards, but you don't miss
what you never had. Nobody
minded. The movies were a big
deal because it was practically
our only entertainment."
The cafe's movie posters were
donated by Baldwin's Mayor
Stan Totman two years ago. His
parents built the Ritz and later
a drive-in theatre in Baldwin
that remained open through the
1970s.
Though Robert and Ella Tot-
man closed the theatre before
adopting Mr. Totman, he dis-
covered the posters stored in the
small wooden appliance store
building they also owned and
operated.
"These posters are signifi-
cant because they weren't mass
produced like things are today,"
said Mr. Totman. "In fact, when
a movie run was over, the poster
was passed on to be used at the
next theatre where it was sched-
uled to show."
Within the cinema industry,
the posters were referred to as
"window cards." At the top of the
posters was a blank space where
each location attached its own
information which was usually
pasted on.
According to Mr. Totman, a
poster advertising the upcoming
movie was displayed in the win-
dow of The Baker County Press
office and changed each week.

The weekly routine
The Ritz wasn't the only area
theatre Ms. Gerson worked at
that summer.
She traveled alongside Earl
Chessman selling movie tickets
as he delivered and set up film
reels for theatres in Macclenny,
Baldwin, Callahan, Hilliard and
Jacksonville each week.
Her father's store in down-
town Macclenny was practically
next door to Chessman's Theatre,
so she walked in one day and
asked for a summer job.
"Mr. Chessman went and
spoke to my father about my
working for him and Daddy
agreed," she said. "In those days,
girls didn't have to worry about
any inappropriate behavior in
the company of an older man."
Every Saturday, Mr. Chess-
man went to the train depot and
picked up several sets of movies
from the distributor. They came
on large reels and were shipped
in flat metal canisters.
Mr. Chessman picked up the
young Ms. Gerson at 4:30 pm
sharp. They arrived in Baldwin at
4:45. While he got the projector
and reels set up, she prepared her
cash box and tickets. From 5:00
to 5:3o, when the movie started,
she sold tickets for a whopping 15
cents.
A movie consisted of two large
reels which had to be switched
when the movie was halfway
through. Mr. Chessman would
set everything up and he em-
ployed a young boy who was re-
sponsible for switching the reels
so he could leave the theatre.
When ticket sales at the Ritz
were finished, Mr. Chessman
and Ms. Gerson left Baldwin to
deliver another set of reels to the
theatre in Jacksonville. As Mr.


Chessman set things up, Anita
watched the trailer of coming
attractions because she wasn't
needed to sell tickets there.
From Jacksonville, they drove
to Callahan and then to Hilliard,
where they repeated the same
routine he delivering and set-
ting up the reels while she han-
dled the money and ticket sales.
After sales in Hilliard were
complete, Ms. Gerson went into
the theatre and watched the
entire movie. Afterwards, Mr.
Chessman rewound the movie
reels and packed them back into
the truck.
Then it was back to Calla-
han to rewind and pick up movie
reels, then to Jacksonville, then
Baldwin. Finally, about 12:30
am, the pair arrived back home
in Macclenny. The next day, Mr.
Chessman would go to the depot
and send the reels back to the
distributor.
"I got paid $20 dollars for the
day, big money in those days,"
said Ms. Gerson. "I'd been mak-
ing only $10 a week working in
my Daddy's store and I thought,
'to heck with this!'"

Mischief at the movies

Occasionally someone, usually
a teenager, pulled a fast one in
the theatre and upset the routine.
One afternoon at the Ritz, when
she had just finished locking up
her cash box at 5:30, the lobby
suddenly filled with people.
"Everybody was rushing back
out the doors to the street and I
thought what in the world is go-
ing on? Then I smelled this abso-
lutely horrible odor," she said.
As it turned out, a boy had set
off a stink bomb in the theatre
and was gleefully watching the
chaos from the sidelines.
"We had to open up all the the-
atre doors and get it ventilated.
It delayed the start of the movie
about 30 minutes. Mr. Chessman
was so mad he could hardly stand
it," she said.
Ms. Gerson chuckles when she
remembers how scandalous such
behavior was considered at the
time. Setting off a stink bomb in
a crowd of people was considered
a terrible thing.
"And sometimes people in
the balcony threw chewing gum
down on top of the heads of those
below and that was considered
awful, too," she said, laughing.
Ms. Gerson said her theatre
summer was a wonderful expe-
rience. The people in each town
had unique characteristics and
she loved interacting with them.
She loved the glorious smell of
hot buttered popcorn that per-
fumed the air at each theatre. She
loved being able to relax and see
a movie for free at the end of her
shift.
Best of all, she enjoyed seeing
how much other people enjoyed
the movies back then.
"I remember, if the movie was
a Western and there was a high
spirited chase on horseback, boys
would be standing up in their
seats shouting and cheering for
the good guys. It was a wonderful
thing to witness," she said.
Note: Although the story
states that movies were only
shown on Saturday, occasion-
ally they were shown on week-
days, as the poster in the photo
indicates. According to Mayor
Totman, holidays sometimes ac-
counted for the switch in rou-
tine.

Intoxicated man is


arrested for threats


to others at Trailridge


Police arrested a Macclenny
man late on October 7 for slash-
ing the tires of a vehicle in a trail-
er park east of Macclenny and
threatening bodily harm to two
other persons.
Woodrow Joyner, 39, was
charged with aggravated assault
with a lo-inch kitchen knife he
retrieved from the residence of
Terrie Bennett, 34, in the Trail-
ridge trailer park about 11:oo pm.
Deputy Patrick McGauley said
the intoxicated suspect slashed
two tires on a car belonging to his
wife.
Ms. Bennett and Nathan Ben-
nett, 18, fled the area after Mr.
Joyner allegedly threatened he
was "going to cut everyone up in
the yard and ... gut them."
The deputy said he found the
knife in a grassy area near the
residence, and described Mr.
Joyner as "belligerent and dis-
ruptive" on the way to county
jail. He also allegedly threatened
the Bennetts again while being
driven away.
In other incidents:
Michael Farris, 33, was
charged with domestic battery
late on October 5 for allegedly
punching his live-in girlfriend
Vickey Morris, 43, at their resi-
dence offAnne Rd. near Glen St.
Mary.
The girlfriend told Deputy
Kevin Jenkins that Mr. Morris
returned home after a night of
drinking and they argued about
food. She later went to retrieve
him from a couch about 11:30
and he punched her in the left
eye, knocking her to the floor.
A criminal complaint for the
same offense was filed naming
Elizabeth Barton, 37, of Macclen-
ny in an attack on her estranged
husband in the parking lot of the
Walmart Supercenter the eve-
ning of October 7.
William Barton, 34, said his
wife accosted him after seeing
him talking with another female
about 8:00 pm. They had been


separated three weeks, and the
couple's two children ages 11 and
13 witnessed the incident.
Deputy McGauley said the wife
is suspected in the destruction of
property at the couple's home off
Smokey Rd. in Glen St. Mary.
Mack White, 38, was named
October 8 in a complaint for
violating a court order to avoid
contact with his estranged wife.
Linda White, 38, of Fred Harvey
Rd. west of Glen told Sgt. James
Marker that Mr. White sent her
140 text messages since Septem-
ber 9.
Two juvenile females ages 16
and 17 were named in complaints
for aggravated battery and bat-
tery after they fought the after-
noon of October 5 on Aunt Mary
Harvey Rd. west of Glen.
The girls are reportedly
friends, and the more serious ag-
gravated battery count was lev-
eled against the 16-year-old for
biting the older girl and kicking
her in the face.
Donate kid's books
The Hooked on Books organi-
zation will host a children's book
drive at the October 23 Wildcat
home game at Memorial Sta-
dium.
Fans and parents are asked
to bring appropriate books and
donate them for distribution to
children in Baker County. They
will be given away free.

CITY COMMISSION



Not'giving up' on city downtown


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A renewed effort at revital-
izing downtown Macclenny may
be afoot despite no dedicated
funding source for potential im-
provements.
Chamber of Commerce Di-
rector Darryl Register pledged
during the Macclenny City Com-
mission's meeting October 13 to
begin gathering interested busi-
ness owners to formulate plans
for the future.
He was joined that evening by
two downtown merchants who
recently met with a handful of
other business owners to discuss
approaching the city about mak-
ing minor, less expensive changes
to downtown.
When finalizing this year's
budget, commissioners tabled
borrowing $250,000 to expand
improvements made on S. Col-
lege Street lamp posts, land-
scaping and decorative sidewalks
- through more of the city's
core.
"We really want to see a viable
downtown," said framing and
gift boutique owner Karen Rho-
den before suggesting ways to
make the area neater and more
accessible. She requested that
overgrown trees be trimmed and
signs placed near the interstate
advertising Macclenny's historic
downtown.
"It's always been neat and
clean, but things need a brush up
from time-to-time," Ms. Rhoden
said.
Additional lighting downtown


could also help attract visitors
during evening hours, though it's
one of the more costly improve-
ments and neither city hall, nor
business owners have committed
funds for revitalization yet.
"We have not given up on this
..." Mayor Gary Dopson assured
the audience, which also included
city staffers, knitting shop owner
Joan Trawick and realtor Dennis
Collins. "Times got hard enough
that we were afraid to jump
into [borrowing $250,000], not
knowing how bad things would
get."
The board intends to wait until
midway through the fiscal year to
reassess its financial outlook and
decide how much money, if any,
can be used for improvements


downtown.
"There's nothing to say next
year we can't do the whole buck-
et," said Commissioner Vernon
Bennett.
Wilting foliage downtown
further demonstrates the lack of
available resources, noted Mayor
Dopson, saying that a city worker
who was watering plants has been
placed on garbage truck duty.
"They're not getting enough
water and they're starting to die,"
he said.
The pots they sit in may also
share the blame.
"The pots need to be redone,"
said the city's code enforcement
officer Joy Chapman. "There's
too much rock in them ... There's
no place for the roots to go."


In other business that evening,
the commission:
Annexed the Council on Ag-
ing's new property on the south-
west corner of Willis Hodges
and Buck Starling roads into city
limits.
Adopted an ordinance giv-
ing City Manager Gerald Dopson
and the board the authority to
set garbage collection schedules
and fees that incorporate annual
automatic adjustments based on
prior year expenses and the Con-
sumer Price Index, which typi-
cally increases 2-3 percent each
year.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


NEW RIVER LANDFILL


'Borrow pit' plan is nixed

Baker County site may be sought


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The New River landfill dropped
its plans to purchase 130 acres of
nearby land after neighboring
residents voiced opposition to
its proposed use borrowing for
daily cover dirt.
"We want to help you the best
we can," said Union County resi-
dent Mitchell Anderson, "but we
don't want a big pit in our back-
yard."
A handful of residents echoed
that sentiment to both New Riv-
er's board of directors October 8
and the Union County Commis-
sion during its consideration of a
permit to accommodate the proj-
ect, which was turned down.
"This borrow pit's a dead is-
sue," added Doyle Thomas, who
serves on both bodies.
The roughly $390,000 pro-
posal to buy two parcels north
and south of the landfill from
Plum Creek may have yielded
enough dirt to last more than a
decade, however; the overall in-
vestment for labor, equipment
and other associated costs was
estimated at close to half-a-mil-
lion dollars.
About $17,000 was already
spent on investigating the bor-
row site's usefulness.
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal said last July there re-
mained an 18-month supply of
dirt at the facility, so the need for
additional cover material wasn't
an emergency just yet.
Mr. O'Neal will be looking at
other possible locations, includ-
ing sites in Baker County, he said.
The other option is purchasing
dirt and having it hauled to the
Raiford facility; though he con-
sidered that a last resort.
In other actions last week:
S The board approved the
transfer of about $135,000 from
its long-term planning account
to its operating supplies account
to cover the cost of a soil delivery
contract with Ellington Construc-


tion of Lake Butler.
The contractor is hauling con-
taminated dirt from the old Pin-
eview Golf Course.
Mr. O'Neal said the expense
was not budgeted and there
wasn't enough cash in the oper-
ating supplies account to cover
it. The contractor has delivered
418 loads of dirt, or between 85-
loo tons, since September, which
amounts to about 20 percent of
the stockpile in Macclenny.
The dirt itself is free but con-
taminated with arsenic, making
it unsuitable for traditional con-
struction.
The transfer leaves about
$175,000 in the long-term plan-
ning account.
SAlso approved were four work
orders worth about $412,000 for
engineering services from Jones
Edmunds. The work orders
represent not-to-exceed prices
for environmental monitoring
required under the landfill's
FDEP permit, miscellaneous en-
gineering services and materials
to be rendered as needed, water
district permitting related to con-
struction of the facility's newest
cell 6 and permitting necessary
for start-up of the new gas collec-
tion system.
The collection system was
one of three ongoing projects for
which Jones Edmunds engineer
Joel Woolsey provided updates.
The system's construction is
ahead of schedule, he said, and
recently drilled wells are now
being connected. He said the sys-
tem should be up and running by
year's end, which is also the per-
mit deadline.
Mr. Woolsey said the permit
application for construction of
cell 6 would be submitted to
regulators the following day and
a request for proposals for the
sale of landfill carbon credits has
been released worldwide, includ-
ing markets in Europe and China.
Proposals are due November 6.
He also said certification of
the credits by the Climate Action
Reserve is still pending but that


preliminary findings were posi-
tive.
"It looks good," said Mr. Wool-
sey.
The reserve is a carbon credit
exchange in California similar to
the Chicago Climate Exchange,
which has certified New River's
credits. However, the Califor-
nia exchange typically fetches a
higher price for credits because
its certification requirements are
more stringent and yield higher-
value credits.

Theft leads to drug arrest


A Macclenny woman was ar-
rested October 8 for felony pos-
session of prescription drugs af-
ter she and a male acquaintance
were reported for shoplifting at
the Raceway station near Inter-
state 10 off SR 121.
Deputy Jeff Shouse questioned
Amber Cremeans, 18, after she
and Matthew Eddins, 32, also of
Macclenny, were seen walking
south on 121 and matched the
description given by the store
clerk.
The clerk called police about
10:30 pm after confirming via a
video surveillance system that
Ms. Cremeans pilfered dual
packs of cigarettes valued at $32
while Mr. Eddins was distracting
him to inquire about the price of
a drink.
Lt. Scotty Rhoden found the
cigarettes in the woman's purse,
along with a bottle with numer-
ous pills including Xanax. Later

Ms. Cremmeans admitted to

he was unaware of the shoplift-

faces one count of attempting to
smuggle contraband into jail.
Three men were arrested the

Cash For Clunkers Forces Dealers To Pay

Thousands More Than Trades Are Worth


GairnsviceFL-
The ;Gov rnnreit' CARS
or Cash for Clunkers pro-
grain was wildly .Lmccessful.
Consumers traded in older,
gas gulzzling vehicles for
new, safer, more fuel effi-
cint minodels with govern-
ment rebates up to $4,500.
As new car sales scmard,
hundreds of thousands of
would-lc trade in vehicles
were destroyed, causing
Wade Raulerson Honda st

Gaiincsville r offer up to
$4,500 for any trade.
"Thlc supply of
vehicles is extrenmly low
and demand is at an all time
high. The bulk of our inven-
tory COrwI from rrade-ins.
Before the Cash for Clunk-
ers program it was difficult
to keep $10,000 or less ve-
hicles in srock, now it's al-
in~r impo.ssible. They're
sold as soon as we get them
in," said Jason r ilko, used
Car Sales Manager at Wade
Raulerson Honda.
The market is ripe for
trades of all types from late
model Toyota, Honda, Nis-
san and Fords to luxury
Mercedes-Benz, BMW and
L.exus inodels. Wade

Port seeks to expand FTZ zone


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Attracting international trade
and manufacturing companies
to Baker County could become
easier after the Jacksonville Port
Authority obtains permission
from federal regulators to expand
the boundary of its Foreign Trade
Zone [FTZ] No. 64.
The authority is preparing an
application to the US Foreign
Trade Zones Board that will al-
low businesses within 60 miles
of the Jacksonville port to pursue
inclusion in zone 64 and take
advantage of relaxed or removed
tariffs.
Since all of Baker County lies
within that boundary, the FTZ
expansion will make industrial
park sites being planned at either
end of the county more attractive,
predicted Chamber of Commerce
Director Darryl Register.
"We just have to take advan-
tage of it," he said.
FTZs represent areas where
goods can be imported and ex-
ported without companies hav-
ing to pay the same taxes they
would normally. For instance,
products exported from FTZs to
foreign countries can be shipped
duty free and import tariffs can
be deferred until products leave
the FTZ.
Since tariffs on finished
products are typically less than
those on their component parts,
manufacturers operating inside
FTZs can save considerably by
importing product components,
assembling them and shipping
the finished goods overseas.
Permitting the expansion of
FTZs well outside international
ports is a new practice for the US
Foreign Trade Zones Board that
began this year. The board con-
sists of officials from the federal
commerce and treasury depart-
ments.
The port authority's applica-
tion to participate in the expand-
ed program should be complete
in two to three months, but it
could take another six to nine
months before it's processed by
federal regulators, said Deborah
Lofberg, the port's director of
marketing services.
The Baker County Commis-
sion passed a resolution in sup-
port of the application at its
meeting October 6.


The port currently has eight
existing FTZ sites in Duval Coun-
ty, though they remain under
used with only four companies
participating.
"I'm very optimistic with ev-
erything going on in and around
Jacksonville that we are attract-
ing major customers here as far


as manufacturing and import-
ers," she said.
And although there are 300
possible applicants for the new
program, Ms. Lofberg said the
authority is one of less than to
actively pursuing participation.
None have gained approval
from regulators yet.

Tracks are


there, but


ATVgone
Police are investigating the
theft overnight of an off-road
vehicle from a rear porch at the
residence of William Raulerson
off US 90 west in Sanderson.
The victim told Deputy Kevin
Jenkins he last saw the cam-
ouflage Honda ATV valued at
$8000 when he left the residence
about 7:30 the evening of Octo-
ber 10. The next morning he dis-
covered it was gone.
The officer's report noted
tracks leading from the porch
to a rear gate, and tracks from a
second vehicle near the rear gate
and road shoulder.
In other theft reports involv-
ing vehicles, someone removed
nearly $1500 worth of personal
property from a 2002 Chevrolet
that had broken down on SR 121
at the Union County line the af-
ternoon of October 7,
Owner Lisa Mackey of Sand-
erson said she returned to the
vehicle the following day to find
the front passenger window had
been smashed to gain entry. The
inventory of stolen items includ-
ed medical books and equipment,
a CD changer, radar detector,
rings, a camera and other items.
Ms. Mackey told Deputy Dan-
iel Nichols she abandoned the
vehicle about 3:oo pm, and it
was intact when a state trooper
tagged it an hour and a half later.
A bicycle valued at $100oo was
taken during the late afternoon
October 11 from the residence
of Barbara Mosely on W. Min-
nesota Ave. in Macclenny. It was
parked on the front porch, and
went missing during a half-hour
period starting at 5:30.


Police chase fleeing


driver in Sanderson

A Macclenny man is charged with multiple criminal and traffic viola-
tions for fleeing a pursuing deputy south of Sanderson the evening of
October 8.
Deputy Matt Sigers said he first noticed a 1991 Honda driven by
Teddy Belford, 18, swerving in and out of its lane about 11:15 on CR
229 near downtown Sanderson. The Honda kept going south on 229
past Wiremill Rd. after the officer got behind it with emergency lights
engaged. It sped south across Interstate lo, then east on Reid Stafford
where Mr. Belford continued at high speed with headlights off.
The officer said Mr. Belford and one of three male juvenile occupants
fled on foot after the Honda turned too fast off Nutty Buddy Lane and
struck a house. The youths remaining in the Honda refused to identify
the fleeing suspects, and a K-9 team tracked down the 16-year-old, who
in turn identified the driver as Mr. Belford.
The suspect got away and was questioned later at his residence off
MLK Dr. in Macclenny, where he admitted running from the scene be-
cause he is on probation.
Mr. Belford was booked at county jail for high-speed fleeing, resist-
ing arrest, three counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors,
having improper equipment on the Honda, failure to maintain a single
lane, speeding and driving without headlights.
In another incident south of Sanderson, this one on October lo,
Donnie Tanner, 30, of Callahan was named in a criminal complaint for
improper display of a .9 mm pistol by allegedly waiving it at another
motorist on Interstate 10.
Fredrick Muskewittz, 50, of Jacksonville said he twice attempted to
pass a black Mustang driven by Mr. Tanner and it accelerated. The sec-
ond time, the complainant said Mr. Tanner waived the pistol in front of
the passenger window. A passenger then pushed the firearm down.
Deputy Earl Lord said he found the pistol and 49 rounds of ammu-
nition inside the Mustang after stopping it based on Mr. Muskewittz's
description. The vehicle by then was in downtown Sanderson.

'Magnolias' on stage


Community theatre makes comeback


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
For the first time in 15 years,
Baker County will be treated to a
community theatre performance,
this time featuring Steel Magno-
lias and scheduled to open Octo-
ber 29.
A matinee showing of the play
with a dessert reception will be
dedicated to former Baker Coun-
ty drama student Eddie Kramer,
who recently passed away. Pro-
ceeds from the matinee will go
to fund a drama scholarship for
a Baker County student.
Director Bob Gerard, who
had a specific reason for instigat-
ing the community play, shared
some of his insights into the spe-
cial production during a recent
afternoon rehearsal.
When he saw the entries last
year at the Florida Community

Jailed man's trailer


A padlock was severed to gain
entry to a trailer home off Hassie
Johns Rd. sometime during sev-
eral days leading up to October
9 when a relative of the owner
showed up to clean it.
Tammie Parker told Deputy
Kevin Jenkins she was at the
north county residence about a
week before and left it locked.
She is the sister of owner Thomas
Walker, who is in jail.
The sister said missing prop-
erty includes furniture, a bed and
picture, plus a green Ford pickup
that was parked to the rear of the
trailer. She named an ex-girl-
friend of her brother as a suspect.
There was no value placed on the
missing property.
In other recent incidents in-
volving petty theft and vandal-
ism:
Someone vandalized win-
dows and a door at an abandoned
residence on South Boulevard in
Macclenny between October 4-
7. Owner Harry Pitts placed the
damage value at $125.
A Macclenny man sum-
moned police October 7 and ac-
cused his son, age 14, of stealing
$1oo from a drawer in a bedroom
of their residence off Woodlawn
Cemetery Rd. The father told po-
lice the son has stolen from him
previously, and that he found the
money in a backpack.
The boy said he needed the
cash for extra food at school.
A camera valued at $250 was
taken from an unsecured locker
at Baker County High School the
morning of October 5. It was the
property of a 15-year-old female
student who was in gym class at
the time.
A cashier at the Macclenny
Food Lion was bilked out of
$50 by one of three men using
the "quick change" con game
intended to confuse the money
handler.
A surveillance video shows
the suspect and two other black


males at the checkout counter
about 5:00 the afternoon of Oc-
tober 9. The suspect initially gave
the cashier $50 to buy a bottle of
water, then in quick succession
presented other denominations.

Heartfelt thanks
The family of Charles "Chuck"
Allen extends a heartfelt thanks
of gratitude and appreciation to
the following people who helped
us through this painful loss and
celebration of his life: Mark Ray,
Taylor Church, Tony Bloxham,
Tina and Kevin Arnold, Lydia Al-
ford, and the many friends who
offered their sympathy to our
family. We can't know why some
things happen, but we know that
love and beautiful memories can
help us endure the pain of grief.
We know that there's a place in-
side the heart where love lives al-
ways, and where nothing beauti-
ful can ever be forgotten. If we've
learned anything through this,
it's that nothing beautiful in this
world is ever really lost and gone.
Those we cherish will always live
on in memory.

Community education effort

Firefighters hit schools, day care for outreach


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com

Staff member Kelley Lan-
nigan recently spent several
days with members of the City
of Macclenny firefighters. This
the third installment of her three
part series.
Public education plays a big
role in the duties of firefighters.
Several times a year, City of
Macclenny firefighters conduct
education programs at local day
care centers and both of Baker
County's elementary schools.
They also speak at civic orga-
nizations such as the Women's
Club, Rotary Club and other
groups like the Baker County
Council on Aging.
Visits to school children are
made periodically throughout the
year, but usually intensify during
National Fire Prevention Week,
this year observed October 4-10.
"During that week, it's not
unusual for members of the
team to spend several days in the
schools," said Division Chief Scott
Crews. "It's a community service
that the department feels is very
important for the children."
Exposure to alarms, fire engines
For children in day care, fire-
fighters usually bring smoke
alarms to familiarize them with
the sound.
"They participate in required
fire drills at the centers, so they're
already familiar with the sound
of the fire alarm," said Mr. Crews.
"We also talk about the impor-
tance of practicing a fire drill at
home with parents."
A firefighter may sit on the
floor surrounded by kids and
pass some of his equipment
around such as his radio, gloves
and helmet.
Getting to see the truck up
close is the big thrill for the small-
er children, however; even more
so when the they are allowed to
go inside.
Mr. Crews especially loves
"Water Day." On such an occa-
sion, usually in mid-summer, the
firefighters arrive at a day care
center in the tower truck.
They hook up one of the large
hoses to a hydrant, raise the tow-
er ladder and let the water rain
down on the kids in their bathing
suits.
The firefighters get a tremen-
dous kick out of the experience.
"The kids go nuts, running
around, screaming and laugh-
ing. It's such a blast to watch," he
said.
With age comes curiosity
The programs for elementary
age school children are a little
more involved.
"You get twice as many ques-
tions from that age group," said
Mr. Crews.
Students typically want to
know such things as how much
water the truck tank holds. Ac-
cording to Mr. Crews, at least
one child always asks where the
department's K-9 mascot is.
They love the truck too, of
course. Compartments are
opened to show the different
pieces of equipment and explain
what each is used for. Kids get to

sit in the driver's seat, activate
the siren and honk the horn.
When speaking to groups of
adults, the firefighters will tailor
the subject matter to the particu-
lar group.
Safety and prevention is the
message at the heart of most
presentations and a program tar-
geted at senior citizens may focus
on kitchen fires.
"Fires that start in the kitchen,
commonly occur among the se-
nior population. We always try
to emphasize safety precautions
to them regarding that issue," he
said.
Education also takes place at
the station and groups like scout
troops commonly visit. They tour
the firefighter's living quarters,
the call center and the office of
Chief Buddy Dugger.
Mr. Crews remembers one
evening when a Brownie troop
was visiting. The girls and their
leaders were out in the bay being
shown the trucks when the alarm
went off. Of course, the tour was
instantly abandoned.
The Brownie leaders later told
Mr. Crews that witnessing the
firefighters spring into action,
don their bunker suits, jump into
the truck and take off with lights
and sirens going full tilt was the
greatest thing that could have
happened for the girls.

through their work with the Ex-
plorers, a volunteer scouting pro-
gram for teens.
Explorers spend time at the
fire station and learn all the de-
tails about the mechanics of the
fire trucks. They also take the
same first responder course re-
quired to prepare firefighters in
stabilizing accident victims until
emergency medical service per-
sonnel arrive.
Explorers don't fight fires, go
into homes or perform any duties
associated with first response, but
their association deepens their
understanding of a firefighter's
role.
"The Explorers work with a
team of scout advisors and must
complete certain requirements.
When they reach a specific level,
they can accompany firefight-
ers on calls and assist in limited
ways," said Mr. Crews.
Explorers are required to learn
where everything is kept on a fire
truck so they can pull those tools
if a firefighter requests them.

Serving and educating the
community is not limited to

learning center as well and pride
themselves on making the public

they feel they can do that. Unless
we're occupied at the moment,
we're always open to visitors,"

S with Coach Bobby Johns


Indians scalped by Cats


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
When Baldwin Coach Andy
Giddens decided to make the
move up in classification from
Class 2B to Class 2A, he knew
that he would be in for some
tough times early on. He probably
didn't expect to be down by
35 points just seconds into
the second quarter after
bringing the Indians to
Macclenny October 9.
The Wildcats struck
early and often against an
outclassed Baldwin squad
on their way to a 49-0 vic-
tory that night. The Cats hit
Baldwin even before all the
fans had settled into their
seats.
On the second play of
the game, Darvin Ruise
faked a handoff and broke
free of containment. He
outpaced the shocked Indi-
an defenders for a 70-yard
touchdown run. Kendrick
Sampson's extra point
gave the Cats a 7-0 lead and Abo,
rocked the Indian fans who
made the nine-mile trip
down US 90.
Wildcat Coach Bobby Johns
was understated in his praise of
the team's quick start. "It was one
of those nights where things kind
of clicked early and we were able
to do some things," he said.
Just like that, the Indians were
a touchdown behind with less
than a minute gone off the clock.
Baldwin was rocked back on its
heels, but they weren't ready to
throw in the towel by any means.
All night long the Indians
picked up good yardage on kickoff
returns and started their opening
series from the 40-yard line.
A quick pass completion ad-
vanced the ball to mid-field and
the quarterback dropped back
and fired again. This time the ball
was caught by the Cat's Harold
Moore, who returned it 55 yards
for a touchdown, putting the
Wildcats up 14-0.
Moore wasn't just in the right
place at the right time, however.
"We were looking at the back-
side slant because we knew that
they like to throw it and Harold
just stepped in front of it," said
Coach Johns.
It was a nightmare opening
for Baldwin and things just kept
getting tougher. On their next
possession they fumbled the ball
and Cody Wheeler recovered for
the Wildcats at Baldwin's 21-yard
line.
Two plays later, Ruise broke
through the line and dashed 19
yards to pay dirt. Sampson missed
only his second extra point of the
season and the Wildcats were up
20-0.
For the first time in the game,
Baldwin got the ball and didn't
hand it right back to the Wild-
cats. That didn't mean that the
outcome was going to be any dif-
ferent though.
The Indians could not man-
age any kind of offense against
the Wildcat's defensive unit. By
game's end, the Indians would
have gained only nine yards rush-
ing.


49-0 route is second


shutout this season

bling Indian during Friday's win.


Coach Johns was very compli-
mentary of the effort. "They are
the most disciplined defense I've
ever had. They whole-heartedly
believe in what we are doing on
defense," he said.
The Wildcats got the ball back
on their own 37-yard line and
drove the length of the field for
another score. Then Moore ran
into Baldwin territory to the 40.
A penalty moved the ball back
into Wildcat territory but three
plays later Milton Baker took a


toss from Ruise and scrambled
around the end for a 25-yard
score.
Dekimby Hogan ran in the
two-point conversion for a 28-0
lead.
It didn't get any easier for
the visitors. Kendrick Singleton
hauled in an athletic and graceful
one-handed interception grab to
give the Wildcats the ball in In-
dian territory.
Moore struck quickly, but his
touchdown run came back for


a penalty. That just extended
the drive and Ruise and Hogan
moved the ball steadily down
field. Moore got his second score
of the game on a lo-yard plunge.
The Cats were up 35-0 and things
started happening very quickly.
Down by 35 before halftime,
Coach Giddens agreed to
a running clock. At that
point, the clock didn't stop
between plays and the half-
time interval came very
quickly.
Johns began substitut-
ing freely. Ruise sat down
and Kendrick Sampson
took over the single calling
duties. Sampson, who has a
smooth throwing rhythm,
demonstrated his acumen
by hooking up with Single-
ton for a 27-yard touch-
down pass.
The Cats would score
once more in the second
half. Sampson chewed up
yardage with a long pass
skevich play to Tymachee Givens
and Hogan ran the ball in
from nine yards out for the
score.
Perhaps the most exciting se-
ries of the night was an outstand-
ing defensive stand. Darrius Nash
returned the kickoff 83 yards for
the Indians, finally at the Wildcat
2-yard line.
Johns had no intention of let-
ting the defensive unit lose its
shutout and returned the starters
to the game for a goal line stand.
It was impressive. The Wildcat
defense not only wouldn't let the
Indians in the end zone, it pushed
them back. After four successive
tries, the Indians were pushed
back to the to-yard line and the
shutout was preserved.


We're now 2-0 in the district!
It may not sound glamorous
to everyone reading this after the
way the game against Baldwin
turned out this past Friday, but I
am excited about it. My
hat is off to Coach Andy
Giddens and the Bald-
win players for their ef-
forts and perseverance
last week under tough
circumstances without
several of their key play-
ers.
People have asked
what can you take away
from a game like last
week that will help you
prepare for the stretch Coach B
run of the season. My
answer is that we look at the ex-
ecution of our team more closely
than who we are playing. In gen-
eral, with our starters in during
the first half, we did some very
good things on both sides of the
ball. We implemented some new
wrinkles on offense that we have
been working on for a few weeks
now and it looked fairly sharp.
Defensively we played sound
and fast most of the night and
I was proud of our starters who


obi


came back in the game on the
goal line stand and held Baldwin
out of the end zone.
We now begin to prepare for
the upcoming district run against
Raines, Suwanee and
Santa Fe. After Solid
Rock this week, our
playoff future will be on
the line every game. We
have a chance to win our
second district cham-
pionship in just four
years and only the sixth
in school history. It will
be an exciting time for
us and we are looking
forward to it.
by Johns I hope everyone will
join us this week at 7:30
as we face Solid Rock. I assume
the county fair hurt our atten-
dance last week a little and I sin-
cerely hope our crowd will be its
normal capacity this week. We
need everyone in the stands over
the next four weeks as go after a
district crown, and possibly set up
a home showdown with Madison
in the first round of the playoffs.
Hope to see you there. Go Wild-
cats!


Miami school to sub


There's not a lot of say about
Solid Rock Christian Academy,
the Wildcats' opponent Friday
at Memorial Stadium. That's
because there's not a lot known
about them.
Solid Rock is a first-year
team from Miami that plays in
a small conference of Christian
schools. They were added at the
last minute after the Performing
Arts Academy cancelled on Oct.
6 when their head coach was ar-
rested for embezzling athletic
department funds.
The Performing Arts Academy
had been added to the Wildcats'
2009 schedule after Bay Pointe
from Miami cancelled earlier in
the season. It's turned out to be
an odd bit of scheduling for the
Cats.
"The only reason this was
possible was that we had talked
to these folks when we lost Bay
Pointe," said Coach Bobby Johns.
They didn't have a full schedule
and were willing to add the Cats
on this date, but not on the Oct.
6 date Baker High originally
wanted.
Solid Rock is willing to take on
bigger, more powerful schools for
much the same reason Charles-


ton Southern is willing to sched-
ule the University of Florida.
'They are a first-year program
and they're taking their lumps
early," said Johns. But, like
Charleston, it makes them a bet-
ter team in the long run.
Solid Rock has made a visit up
north this year. Two weeks ago
they were shut out by University
Christian 35-0.
Offensively, the team is a bit
of an anachronism. Its main of-
fensive set is the tradition Power
I formation. But they will also
drop back into a shotgun with
five wide outs and only the quar-
terback in the backfield.
One of Coach Johns' main
reasons for picking up the team
is that they run the same defen-
sive formation as the Cats' next
district opponent, the Raines
Vikings.
"Defensively they are a 3-5
team like Raines," said Johns.
Playing Solid Rock gives the
Wildcat defenders a chance to
go to school on Raines in a game
situation.
"Our goal is to try and get it
under control in the first half. We
aren't going to take them lightly,"
he said.

Ladycats


handed


2 losses


this week

JOE DARASKEVICH I SPORTS
The Wildcat volleyball team
lost two matches this week to fin-
ish the most grueling stretch of
the season.
The team traveled to Bishop
Snyder October 6, losing 3-1 (26-
24, 23-25, 25-17, 25-17). The loss
came after a weekend tourna-
ment in Keystone that featured
some of the best competition in
the state.
"We hung in tough in the first
game [against Bishop Snyder]
but we were drained from the
weekend," Head Coach Chris Ar-
moreda said. "Even though it was
a loss, it was the most complete
game we've played."
Armoreda was proud of his
girls' effort but felt they needed
a few days after the gauntlet. The
girls rested Wednesday, prac-
ticed Thursday and were given
Friday, Saturday and Sunday off
before a match against Union
County October 12. The team fell
3-2 (25-18, 22-25, 25-21, 25-20,
16-14) to Union County on their
home floor.
"We were matching errors for
errors and that's not our team,"
Armoreda said. "I was glad they
were back physically, but their
minds were somewhere else."
The loss to Union County
was a tough one to swallow for
Armoreda, but his team gets a
shot at revenge against Bishop
Snyder.
The girls host the Cardinals
on Thursday October 15 at 6:00
p.m.
"Our seniors were upset after
Monday's loss," Armoreda said.
"I told them the season depends
on them and there won't be any
more second chances this year."
Seniors Brittney Alford, Kari
Harris, Meagan Osteen and Ash-
ley Holton are versatile leaders
that guide the younger players in
different ways.
"One leads by example, one is
very encouraging, one is sympa-
thetic and the other one fires the
team up," Armoreda said.
The girls will finish the regular
season at home, hosting Hilliard
October 19. Senior night is the
following evening against Trinity
Christian.
Both games start at 6:00 p.m.
The JV volleyball team placed
fourth out of eight teams over
the weekend at a tournament in
Keystone. They will play Bishop
Snyder and Hilliard an hour be-
fore the varsity matches.


Wildcats'


opposition

BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Baker High Wildcats pre-
pared for their makeup football
game against Solid Rock Acad-
emy with a 49-0 drubbing of
Baldwin to go 2-0 in the district.
Here's a look at how this season's
opponents, past and future,
fared:
Crescent City's only loss has
been to the Wildcats. The Raiders
cruised to a 35-14 win over Holy
Trinity Episcopal of Melbourne.
Trinity Christian continued
to roll. The undefeated Conquer-
ors bowled over PK Yonge 42-0
at home on the Westside of Jack-
sonville.
Bradford County traveled to
Lake Butler to take on the Union
County Tigers. The Tigers did
not make it a happy trip as they
handed the Tornadoes a 26-21
loss. Bradford is 2-4 on the sea-
son.


There is no other way to say
this than Ribault destroyed Ala-
chua Santa Fe in a district battle.
The Trojans went on the road
and crushed the Raiders 75-13.
That isn't a misprint. The Trojans
scored 75 points on the road.
Raines went on the road to
Live Oak and spanked the Bull-
dogs 49-14. The Wildcats will
match up with the Vikings in two
weeks.
ACD road the bus to Mon-
ticello and pummeled Aucilla
Christian 60-0.


Fair wraps


up week...
Four-year-old Elly Yori of St. George,
GA poses for the camera while en-
joying the rotating truck ride with
Kelton Lanier, 2, also of St. George
the evening of October 7 at the
Baker County Fair. Fair officials re-
ported this year's event to be wildly
successful, particularly due to the
addition of a professional rodeo
show. A bull riding exhibition or
Bull-o-rama is being planned for
the Spring thanks to the popularity
of the rodeo. Clear weather, albeit
hotter during the latter part of the
week, also seemed to help atten-
dance at this year's event.

Rhodes returning after injury


JOE DARASKEVICH I SPORTS
Alex Rhode is the BCHS girls
cross country team's most impor-
tant puzzle piece and she's been
missing for the last two meets.
Rhode has been under the
weather but is feeling much bet-
ter after the time off and head
coach Charles Ruise expects her
back in action this October 15 for
the team's home meet with Hill-
iard and Yulee.
"Alex is back and she's been
running strong," Ruise said.
The rest of the team has been
running without their leader, but
have not been eligible to win a
team title with only four entries
in each of their last two meets.
The boys and girls both trav-
eled to Yulee October 6 for a meet
that also included West Nassau.
The boys placed second while the
girls just ran for individual acco-
lades.
The girls weren't the only ones
affected by illness though. Brad-
ley Mareth was forced to miss the
meet in Yulee, so Tristan Payne
had to step up his performance
to give the boys squad its second-
place finish.
"Tristan has been coming
along," Ruise said. "This week
we put a little heat on him and he
performed just fine."
Payne finished 20th overall
with a time of 28:48 and without
Mareth, Ruise was grateful to


have the extra pair of legs.
Chris Tran finished second
overall with a time of 20:15 and
teammate Noah Davis followed
right behind with a time of 20:28,
which was good enough for third
place.
Corey Sweeney and Dillon Kett
placed 6th and 8th respectively
with times of 21:32 and 21:38.
Kayla Eligino was the girls'
top runner, placing fourth over-
all with a time of 21:26. Catherine
Davis placed sixth overall with a
time of 25:11 and Autumn Jack-
son finished loth with a time of
28:54.
Eligino's time is encouraging
considering Carissa Ward and
Rhode are the top Wildcat run-
ners this year.
The meet in Yulee was Ward's
first race back after feeling ill her-
self. She finished 13th with a time
of 31:o6.
"Carissa has been battling a
little sickness as well," Ruise said.
"She's normally a top runner that
we've been pushing all year."
Ward and Rhode are both
feeling better this week and will
make a huge difference in Thurs-
day's meet.
The race starts at 4:30 but fans
are encouraged to arrive at 4:15
to show support for the runners
before they leave the gate.
"Allergies have really been af-
fecting us this year," Ruise said.


"Both the boys and girls should
be commended for their effort
lately and I expect our teams to
be back to full strength on Thurs-
day."
