Fire from faulty dryer levels Baxter trailer...
A faulty laundry dryer was the apparent cause of the blaze that destroyed James Crews' single-wide mobile home the evening of October 19. Firefighters arrived at
the northern county residence at 26335 CR 127 near Baxter 13 minutes after being dispatched about 11:00 pm and found the structure engulfed in flames. A venting
100-pound propane tank was allowed to burn itself out before firefighters extinguished the fire. "The tenant [Linda Brown] stated she smelled smoke coming from the
laundry area and saw flames coming from the dryer," said county Fire Chief Richard Dolan in his report. "It appears to be accidental in nature, because of mechanical
failure of the dryer." The contents of the home were not insured, he noted.

The two newest political
groups in Baker County may
also be the youngest, dispel-
ling the notion that people
under 40 are disinter-
ested in govern-
ment.

and the Lib- t
ertarian Party
of Baker County,
which has
two offi-

30, held
their first
meetings this
month at local
eateries.
Twenty-two
people attended
the Young Re-
publicans gather-
ing at Calendar's
October 13 and
heard from two county commis-
sioners. Ten others interested in
the local Libertarian Party met
five days before at the Waffle

House where Jeff Hunt of Jack-
sonville, a member of the state
party's executive committee,
was the featured speaker.
Clint Shivers, 29, of Mac-
clenny serves as treasurer for
the Libertarian Party of Baker
County. He said attendance at
the inaugural meeting
\\as pretty good,
"especially for a
third party."
Disconnect-
ing from the
two party
system
As a
registered
Libertarian,
Mr. Shivers
was recently con-
tacted by the party's
regional leader
Phil Laibe,
who hoped
to get a local
arm of the
party started
here.
He and an-
other local
man, Rich-

soon met
with Mr.
Laibe and started the county-
level affiliate of the Libertar-

Except for the fact that she has battled
cancer, Chase Haydu is like any other lo-
year-old.
She loves trendy clothes and animals,
likes to go for pizza with friends and enjoys
school, especially her science classes. Her
heart's desire is to meet her idol, University
of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.
Chase is one determined young lady. Even
the cancer that hit her so hard last February
and resulted in numerous operations and
weeks of radiation and chemotherapy did
not keep her from playing soccer with the
YMCA during the 2009 season.
Her example has so impressed fellow
team members that they honored her re-
cently by all wearing pink shirts bearing the
slogan, "Chase Inspires Me."
Since then, she has spoken at a meeting
of the American Cancer Society and was re-
cently interviewed by Jacksonville's Channel
12 and Channel 4 TV stations.
"I want to be a doctor when I grow up
or maybe join law enforcement," she said.
"Something in a helping profession."
The last thing Betsy Haydu expected to
be told when she took her badly dehydrated
daughter to the emergency room at Wolfson
Children's Hospital in Jacksonville to treat

"She just endured it for hours after
the operation, although I don't know

Two difficult weeks dragged by.
The young girl developed pneumo-

'House arrest' pact


is signed by county

The county's expanded house arrest program, expected to save
more than $270,000 for taxpayers annually, will begin operating next
month under management of Baker Community Counseling Services
[BCCS], the local nonprofit that also oversees court-mandated drug
counseling.
The Baker County,
Commission effectively "I' ultimatlyth

funded.
Defendants whom the
court deems suitable for house arrest, namely those with minimal
criminal history and accused of minor crimes, can be placed on house
arrest and monitored by electronic ankle bracelets for far less money
than the cost of housing them at the newjail north of Macclenny.
BCCS director Chris Thomas said eligibility criteria would be simi-
lar to that of inmate work crews often used to mow right-of-ways and
pick up trash while under supervision of the sheriffs office.
In fact, program participants who aren't already employed will be
required to join the inmate crews daily.
"They need to be giving back," Mr. Thomas told county commis-
sioners.
Detainees will be restricted in their movements and only permit-
ted to be in five locations at home, church, work, their local grocery
store or the BCCS office.
The cost of the program will be $22 per day per detainee. With

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Unfit parents, liars


Dear Editor:
I would like to know how
many parents in Baker County
are aware that we as parents are
only allowed to excuse our chil-
dren from one day of school.
Now the rules state that you
are allowed to miss nine excused
days from school in a nine-week
period, but Baker County's won-
derful school board has decided
that we as parents are not quali-
fied to make the decision as to
whether our children are sick
enough to stay home or not.
I see this as an outrage!
Since when did the respon-
sibility of raising our children
become the school board's job?
Last I checked, my name was on
my son's birth certificate. I see
no reason for the school board
to impose such a ridiculous rule,
and we as parents need to stand
up against this outrage and show
the board that it is not the ruler of
our children, but we parents are.
It will now cost each of us an
insurance co-pay each time our
child is sick, and on top of that
the school is now calling doctor's
offices after the note from their
office is turned in and verifying
that it is legitimate.
So now, not only are we unfit
parents but we are liars as well.
If you see this as wrong, please
write your own letter or contact
your school board members and
let them know how you feel. It is
important that we as parents take


back the responsibility of raising
our children and let the members
of the school board raise their
children.

Patients hook

themselves
Dear Editor:
I want the people of Baker
County to know what kind of
doctor Charles Scarborough re-
ally is. In 1998 I had no medical
insurance and Dr. Scarborough
treated me for free for diabetes.
He also gave me a job. I worked
there for two years and had to
leave because of heart trouble.
When he told patients they would
have to go to pain management
we were threatened, cussed out.
He doesn't get you hooked on
your medicine; you do it yourself.
Take it like you are supposed to.
When you want to point fingers
at someone, point it at yourself
and read the label.
Brenda Self
Macclenny
Editors note: This letter is in re-
sponse to a patient of Dr. Scarbor-
ough's who was protesting outside
his Macclenny office October16 with
a sign that read: 'This facility has
enabled me [to] become a pill head,
and maybe others! Protest!!!"

three ways: Money from the pur-
chase of the shirt, dissemination

One such shirt caught my
eye on Tuesday in downtown
Macclenny. The tie-dye design
in rainbow colors could be seen
from a mile away as well as the
large peace symbol on the front.
The slogan, well, that was the
most memorable of all "Peace,

I wasn't familiar with this par-
ticular witticism, so I did what I
always do when I don't know the
origin of something. I go to the
Internet.
Turns out that "Peace, Love

Joe's Crab Shack, a highly suc-

rants. There's one at Jacksonville

makes one think of happy hippies

of their most popular.

The word "crabs" features
prominently and yes, the refer-

with it by using clever plays on
words, of course.
A few are truly funny such as
"Never Crab Naked" and "Joe's

The kid's shirts are cute, too.
I like the one that says, "Crabby

was worn by a salesman at an
electronics supply shop I visited

on the blink and sent me to the
store for a novel little item called
a bridge rectifier.
When I walked in I was
promptly met by a guy wearing
a garish T-shirt that was embla-
zoned across the front in huge
letters that read, "I Got A Rocket
In My Pocket."
This curious declaration was
further emphasized by a large red
arrow that pointed downward.
Subtle.
I also saw an advertisement for
a "Dannielynn" shirt that caught
me off guard. If you recall, Dan-
nilynn is the daughter of Anna
Nicole Simpson. This innocent
child was claimed to be sired by
quite a few different men. The T-
shirt said, "Who's Ya Daddy?"
But the one I'll never forget
was a plain white tee that had
two huge black smudge marks on
the front. Underneath the marks
it said, "I Ran Into Tammy Faye
Baker At Heritage Park."
Tammy would be right on tar-
get fashion-wise, if she were still
alive. Her infamous black bat
wing lashes are actually being
seen now on runway models and
in Vogue magazine. Some things
are just ahead of their time.

Young Republicans and Libertar-
ian Party of Baker County, which
includes two 20-something offi-
cers, show it's not one rooted in
reality.
Almost one year ago, it was a
young and Internet savvy politi-
cal movement that, in part, put
President Obama, a young man
himself by presidential stan-
dards, in the White House.
Though they represent differ-
ing perspectives, the local groups
have shown the same energy and
organization in recent weeks.
The Young Republicans chapter
held its first meeting October 13
at Calendar's in downtown Mac-
clenny and the week prior it was
the Libertarian Party convening
its first meeting at the Waffle
House on South 6th Street.
Both groups were initiated by

Helium balloons a


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD

People are weird.
No. I'm not talking about my-
self or my family. I mean people
in general.
The story that interested me
last week and transfixed much of
the country was about a 6-year-
old boy presumed to have been
flying around in his parents' he-
lium balloon.
If you don't know the story
you missed an interesting one.
For several hours on October 15,
helicopters tracked the large fly-
ing saucer shaped balloon as it
flew across central Colorado.
Young Falcon Heene was pre-
sumed to have climbed aboard
the craft and let it loose. Colo-
rado National Guard helicopters
followed the craft and tried des-
perately to come up with a way to


save the boy.
Can you say hoax?
That's right. The boy was not
in the balloon, but was hidden in
a closet at his house.
The parents, particularly the
father, had conspired with a
friend to use this as a publicity
stunt and a possible reality tele-
vision show about the family.
The Heenes, who met at act-
ing school in Hollywood and
had a taste of reality television
when they participated in the
reality show Wife Swap, claimed
the show was "the best thing that
ever happened in our lives," and
wanted a show of their own.
I am not a fan of reality shows.
I'm not really sure whose "real-
ity" they are supposed to be ex-
periencing, but it certainly isn't
mine or that of anyone I know.
Then there is the case of the
Elvis fan who spent $15,00ooo to
buy some of the King of Rock and
Roll's hair. That's a pretty expen-
sive toupee.

had been taken for granted, and
in some cases ignored, and prob-
ably rightly so. After all, less than
half of eligible voters ages 18-29
usually even bother to vote.
Even in the 2008 presiden-
tial election, turnout among that
group only rose to 52 percent,
according to the Center for In-
formation & Research on Civic
Learning and Engagement.
By comparison, historical
turnout of eligible voters has
swung between 50 and 65 per-
cent since 1948, reports George
Mason University; so it's not like
we're the most civically-minded
nation on earth either.
But, with more and more
young people getting involved in
politics both here and elsewhere,
we could see a bump in overall
turnout, particularly in local and
state races.
Politicians of all stripes and
even business leaders because


they're both salesman, right?
- would be wise not to overlook
the younger crowd.
They've been raised in the in-
formation age. They're impatient
and they all want to be rich and
famous.
They also enjoy contradict-
ing long-held paradigms and
concocting fresh out-of-the-box
solutions. Think mandatory
pregnancy licenses, incarceration
for CEO's who violate truth in
advertising, regulating the bullet
supply instead of the gun supply,
or maybe, repealing blue laws, at
least on Sunday afternoons dur-
ing football season.
No matter what issues we (I
turn 30 next year) decide to latch
onto, I'm glad to see more of us
active in the democratic process.
Our level of engagement will di-
rectly impact the quality of our
representation.
More than that, these local
groups are leading by example.
They're taking responsibility for
the future, both their's and that
of the larger community, and
pressuring legislators to earn
their office.
You can never have too much
of that.

"We decided to go ahead and
sign the paperwork that day and
make it official," said Mr. Shivers,
a former Republican who also
joined the Young Republicans
meeting last week.
Both groups welcome anyone
to their meetings, not just the
party faithful, as long as debate
remains civil.
Mr. Shivers registered Repub-

true to the party as long as he
could.
"What I tell people is that I
didn't leave my party, they left


me," he explained.
The Internet and computer

with both Democrats and Repub-

vehicle for something different.
"The both keep making the
same mistakes. We need a
change," said Mr. Shivers. "The
Libertarian Party makes the most
sense to me. They stand for lim-
ited government, fiscal respon-

ily stepping outside their party's
tent, the Young Republicans, or
YRs, are about creating a new fo-
rum for ideas locally.
That forum is one that mem-
ber Jesse Davis of Macclenny
calls generationallyy relevant."
"Generally speaking," he said,
"people in this age group [18 to
40] have different points of view,
different ways of relating to each
other, different ways of com-
municating and a different view
on what the future should look
like and how politics should be
handled."
The 33-year-old benefits con-
sultant and Orlando-area native
was actively involved with the
Young Republicans in Central
Florida and brings that experi-
ence to the new group in Baker
County.
The group's first aim is to edu-
cate its peers about the platform
of the Republican Party and how
it can help shape the country.
However, the YRs also represent
a well of campaign resources that
can help elect Republican candi-
dates at all levels of government,
said Mr. Davis.

An eye on 2010
Getting its leaders in office
is also a goal of the Libertarian
Party, beginning with this year's
Christmas Parade.
"We're making plans for a
booth and float at the parade,"
said Mr. Shivers, adding that
plans include the Libertarian
candidate for Mel Martinez's va-
cated US Senate seat, Alexander
Snitker.
"He'll be with us during the
Christmas parade," he said.
Both organizations are gear-
ing up for the 2010 mid-term
elections only one year away.
"Now is a very important time
to begin engagement with this
group," Mr. Davis said of the
YRs. "While knowing the issues
and being passionate about them
are important, it changes nothing
unless you make the decision to
be engaged."

and radiation began. Persistent
kidney pain plagued the girl and
the doctors couldn't determine a
cause. When she began urinating
blood, a third surgery, this time
exploratory, was performed to
try to locate the cause. Nothing
was found.
"I was like a robot at this
point, just coping and struggling
to keep it together to do what was
necessary for my child," said Ms.
Haydu.
Between surgeries, Chase went
home for brief periods, but always
ended up back in the hospital.
She underwent rounds of chemo-
therapy and radiation. When her
hair fell out in big patches, she
asked her mother to shave her
head. The kidney pain continued
and soon she was back in the hos-
pital for emergency surgery. This
time to correct a blockage to her
remaining kidney. Throughout
the ordeal, the little girl told her
surgeon, "You have to help me.
My Nanna (great grandmother)
is a cancer survivor. I have to be
well enough to walk in the Relay
For Life with her."
Relay For Life is the American
Cancer Society's signature fund
raising event and takes place
annually in Baker County at the
fairgrounds. The determined
Chase got her wish and did in-
deed participate in the relay. She
was carried around the track by
her cousin Amy Pitman.
More surgery followed, and
the weeks of chemo and radia-
tion continued throughout the
summer. The scars finally began
to heal and Chase regained some
of her strength.
Having played on the YMCA
soccer team last summer, she
became determined to take her
place on the team once again.
"I just couldn't imagine, with
everything she'd been through,
that she would even consider it,
but she had made up her mind,"
said Ms. Haydu. "Convincing me


was the hardest part. I decided
to let her try if that's what she
wanted."
Soccer started in August.
Chase told her coach she wanted
no special treatment. Ms. Haydu
recalls the day Chase took a ball
right in the chest where her main
scar and medicine port were.
"It knocked the wind out of
her but she got up after a few
minutes and went on," she said.
"Meanwhile, I nearly suffered a
heart attack from fright."
Chase has held her own
throughout the soccer season.
She was happy to start school
again, having missed so much
during the past year.
Her bald head has not both-
ered her, although some of her
classmates have teased her un-


LENDER


this girl...
kindly. She takes it in stride, like
so much else in her life.
"Hair grows back," she said, in
her matter-of-fact way.
When she puts together one of
her snazzy outfits, it usually in-
cludes a matching headband that
features an eye-catching decora-
tion such as a large daisy. Her
hair is now a half-inch long.
The best news is that the most
recent tests revealed no trace
of cancer. At the moment, and
hopefully from this point onward,
she is cancer free.
"My girl is really special," said
Ms. Haydu. "I thank God for
Chase every day."

an estimated 12 inmates on any
given day, the annual cost is
$96,360, however; it's far less
than the $84.72 daily rate at the
local jail.
Mr. Thomas also said the
county judge ordering defen-
dants into the program will also
have the opportunity to mandate
payment by the accused of a por-
tion of the $22 daily rate when
appropriate.
Also, the agreement may be
terminated for any reason with
30 days notice to BCCS.
Commissioner Michael Crews
asked about the potential for
abuse in the program, specifically
favoritism in evaluating potential
candidates for inclusion.
"It's ultimately the judge's and
state attorney's call," Mr. Thomas
assured him.
In other business this week:
The board took no action on
exempting big tracts of land from
subdivision regulations that re-
quire paving roads and filing
plans with the county when carv-
ing up a parcel more than once.
The measure, desired by large
county landowners, would ex-
empt divisions as long as parcels
no smaller than 40 acres are cre-
ated and other requirements, like
a minimum 200 feet of lot width,
are met.
"This is really tough territory
in Baker County because we have
big chunks of land hundreds
and hundreds of acres that
[property owners] want to be di-
vided," said Planning Director Ed
Preston.
Though most commission-
ers agreed dividing a looo-acre
tract into five 200-acre tracts,
for instance, doesn't constitute
a traditional subdivision, they


also feared loosening of the rules
could lead to more poorly-main-
tained dirt roads like Cow Pen
Road.
Commissioners also ap-
proved purchasing additional
asphalt from APAC to pave 1.5
miles of dirt roads in the Hills of
Glen including Confederate Drive
and Confederate Lane in lieu of
bidding out the purchase.
APAC submitted the lowest
asphalt bid for resurfacing CR
229 S. last month and had agreed
to maintain the price should the
county wish to purchase more in
the future, said County Manager
Joe Cone.

Summerville, SC after spotting SO P
him at the intersection of US 90
and 5th St. and learned via com-
puter of the suspect's conviction
in North Carolina for molesting a
7-year-old.
Mr. Polchow, who the deputy
described as nervous and shak-
ing, said he was on his way to
Houston, Texas and that he had
been in Florida two and a half
days. According to the deputy,
he is required as a sex offender
to seek an update of his driver's
license within 48 hours of arriv-
ing in another state.
Failure to do so is a third-de-
gree felony.
In other felony arrests:
Tiffany Kelley, 31, of Glen
St. Mary was booked for posses-
sion of controlled drugs without
a prescription after she hailed a
county deputy post-midnight on
October 16.
Deputy Robert Simpkins said
Ms. Kelley waived him down
while standing in the roadway
near South Boulevard and 9th St.
in west Macclenny, a neighbor-
hood known for frequent drug
activity.
The officer said he spotted
a pill bottle when the woman
opened her purse, and the label
indicated it contained .5 mg. dos-
es of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.
Deputy Simpkins arrested Ms.
Kelley, who he said appeared to
be disoriented, after finding 24
other pills of three varieties of
narcotics in the same bottle, plus
17 more Xanax pills of a higher
dosage.


Countyjail inmate David Zip-

said Mr. Register. "The idea is to be broad enough

Kennedy discuss the comp plan. Mr. Regis-
ter, as director
of the county's
Economic Development Commission as well as the
chamber, said he often focuses two criteria when
pursuing projects those that increase the county's
property tax base and its average wage.
Mr. Preston defined economic development a
little different. "It's anything to get people here and
drop some cash," he said.
Five other committees with five to six members
each also started examining other areas of the com-
prehensive plan this month. Their tasks should
conclude in November with recommended changes
being forwarded to the Local Planning Agency, and
then onto the Baker County Commission for final
adoption.
The recommendations will also include ways to
monitor and measure any new goals or policies be-
ing put in place, said county planner Carolyn Bis-
sonnette, who is managing the update.
"For example, a housing policy might be to in-
crease the workforce housing stock," she said. "The
underlying data would be inventories of what hous-
ing stock is currently available to that population."
The updated comprehensive plan is due to the
state's Department of Community Affairs by Janu-
ary 2010.

Looking at population trends


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Raising awareness for the
roughly 1.6 million additional
people and 650,000 new jobs
expected in the northeast Florida
region through 2060, and the
growth challenges they pose, was
the purpose of County Check, a
regional land use planning exer-
cise organized by the Northeast
Florida Regional Council at the
Ag Center on October 16.
About 20 people from Baker
County, either living or working
here, took part in the exercise
that asked participants to assign
yellow Lego blocks, each repre-
senting housing for 1500 new
residents, and red Lego blocks,
denoting 1200 new jobs, to large
maps of Northeast Florida.
The group had to decide where
the anticipated growth should
occur on the tabled-sized maps,
which had no county boundaries
to push those involved to think
about growth regionally, instead
of locally.
"Think outside the box," said
organizer Margo Moehring, the
regional council's director of stra-
tegic initiatives. "Place the blocks
however you think [the region]
should be, not necessarily how it
is or how you think it will be."
The same exercise was com-
pleted last May as part of Real-
ity Check First Coast. That event
included 300 people from across
the seven-county region and took
place in St. Augustine.
The County Check last week
was the first in a series of local
follow-ups to Reality Check that
will run through November.
Before the exercise began,
Ms. Moehring presented results
from the initial exercise, which
are available online at www.re-
alitycheckfirstcoast.com. County
Checks are also designed to gar-
ner additional public input for
regional planning efforts by the
council.
Ms. Moehring said that while
County Checks won't change the
results of the Reality Check exer-
cise, they will help in formulating
the council's new strategic plan
for the region. It hasn't been up-
dated since the mid-199os, she
said.
The council uses the plan to
guide its reviews of Develop-
ments of Regional Impact, such
as the now stalled Cedar Creek
project northeast of Glen St.
Mary.
The County Check group last
week divided into three smaller
groups, each with its own map.
The blocks, as well as colored
string representing new roads
and other means of public trans-
portation, were set aside as each
group drafted a list of five or six
"guiding principles" like conserv-
ing natural resources or provid-
ing affordable housing. Then they
went to work spreading growth
throughout the region.
Chamber of Commerce Direc-
tor Darryl Register attended both
the Reality Check and County
Check exercises.
"At the first event where all the
counties were represented, most
tables started placing their Legos
in the center of the map, Jack-
sonville, and then did the outly-
ing areas," he said. "This time
all three tables started in Baker
County then went around the re-
gion and did Jacksonville last."
Macclenny resident Mike
Yarbrough hoped more partici-
pants would've limited growth in
coastal areas.
"The coastal high hazard prob-
lem with hurricanes and evacua-
tion routes and high insurance
premiums was not a topic anyone
wished to discuss," he said. "They
went right on putting up build-
ings and concentrating larger
numbers of people in harm's way
all along the coast because that is

where they said people preferred
to live."
The results of each group will
be made available on the Web site
within a few weeks and include
things like the average number of
people and jobs placed in Baker
County, different development
patterns used during the exercise
and any consensus on guiding
principles. Participants will then
be able review the results and re-
act to them via survey questions.
The general public can also
provide input by going to the Web
site and completing the Grow
Smart survey. For additional

Moehring at (904) 279-0885 ext.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Former
A retired Baker County pas-
tor was arrested the evening of
October 12 for domestic violence
against a 17-year-old daughter
and against his wife when she at-
tempted to intervene.
Both victims told po-
lice that Charles Edward
Anderson, 44, argued
with the daughter over
the way she did house-
hold chores when he
returned home off CR
23A that evening. The
girl said she ran from
the house when her fa-
ther removed his belt
and came toward her.
"[The daughter] stat- Charles An
ed that she ran outside
to get away from him because
he has a bad temper and is vio-
lent at times and she is afraid of
him," reads the report by Deputy
Randy Davis.
The daughter said when she
went back inside, Mr. Anderson
pushed her against a wall and
shoved her to the floor, then did
the same thing to her mother
Tina, 42, when she intervened
and went for a phone to call po-
lice. The accused then grabbed
the phone and a phone book
from her.
Interviewed separately, Mrs.
Anderson told Sgt. Brad Dough-
erty she stepped between her
daughter and husband out of
fear "he would go too far with the
spanking and she was scared of


Arrests,

charges

after trio

of fights
Two people were arrested and
criminal complaints were filed
against two others for involve-
ment in a series of unrelated
attacks in several Macclenny
neighborhoods the past week. All
of the subjects are female.
Angie Burroughs, 43, was
taken into custody the evening
of October 14 at her residence
on MLK Dr. after a witness con-
firmed that she attacked Yentl
Surrency, 25, outside the latter's
residence on North Boulevard
about 9:oo. Ms. Surrencyis eight
months pregnant and Deputy
Robert Simpkins was told the two
were arguing over a boyfriend
they have in common.
Deputy Simpkins and Deputy
Matt Riegel both noted that Ms.
Burroughs briefly resisted being
handcuffed when they returned
to her residence to arrest her.
She was booked for battery and
resisting arrest without violence.
The accused allegedly struck
Ms. Surrency several times and
pulled her hair. She complained
of stomach pains and was exam-
ined at Fraser Hospital.
In other cases:
Laronda Ellis, 22, was
charged with battery on a 12-
year-old female during an alter-
cation on Sycamore St. in west
Macclenny the evening of Octo-
ber 16. Deputy Larry Clark was
told Ms. Ellis accused the girl
of stealing her cell phone, then
struck her in the face.
Criminal complaints were
filed against Ricci Gaskins, 22,
for battery and Morgo Gaskins,
20, for assisting her in an alleged
attack on Zateya Paige, 21, at an
apartment on E. Ohio the eve-
ning of October 17.
The elder suspect struck Ms.
Paige repeatedly about the face,
then grabbed her by the hair and
threw her to the floor, said wit-
ness Aimee Farmer, who was car-
ing for six small children there at
the time.
The second suspect denied
to Deputy Clark that she was


involved, but both the victim
and witness said she came to the
apartment just prior to the in-
cident, and watched from a dis-
tance after the assailant entered.
A complaint was filed by
NEFSH employee Stacy Mar-
shall, 38, of Starke, alleging she
was struck on the head from
behind by a 54-year-old female
patient.
The incident occurred the
morning of October 14 when Ms.
Marshall was handing out patient
schedules. The employee sought
treatment for head pains.

School bus is sideswiped on 121
Fire and rescue crews raced to the scene of a collision involving three vehicles including a school bus the afternoon of October
14 and were relieved to find no injuries and a minimum of physical damage. Trooper Jeffrey Hattle of the Florida Highway
Patrol charged Carroll H. Bennett of Lithia, FL with careless driving for sideswiping both the bus driven by Renee Graham with
three children aboard, and another vehicle driven by Dawn Luffman of Glen St. Mary. The accident happened at 4:10 at the
intersection of SR 121 and Estates Dr., just south of Interstate 10.



Drug, shoplifting arrest


An 18-year-old Macclenny
woman was arrested for theft and
drug possession after she report-
edly shoplifted a six-pack of beer
from the Fastway Food Store on
Woodlawn Road the evening of
October 16.
Store owner Rubina Ali said
suspect Amber Cremeans of
Southern States Nursery Road, a
regular customer, took the mer-
chandise from a store room and
exited the store. Ms. Ali stopped
the woman outside and said Ms.
Cremeans returned the beer be-
fore fleeing on foot about 9:30
pm, according to Deputy Shawn
Bishara's report.
Daryll Gatlin, 24, of Baldwin
accompanied the suspect during
the incident. When questioned he
said he didn't know the suspect
was stealing beer as he bought a
12-pack for them, but did see Ms.
Cremeans return the merchan-
dise outside, the officer said.
Mr. Gatlin also had two purses
and some clothing in his vehicle
belonging to the suspect, which
were turned over to police.
Inside the purses were 114
prescription pills and other drug
paraphernalia, including a pill
crusher and a two-inch piece of
straw, states the report.
When Ms. Cremeans was lo-
cated at her residence, the officer
said she smelled strongly of an
alcoholic beverage and admitted
the pills belonged to her though
she had no prescription.
The Main Street Market was
vandalized that evening as well,
sometime after 6:30 pm and be-
fore 8:40 am October 17, though
nothing appeared missing.
An employee of the W. Mac-
clenny Ave. market called police
when she found a broken window
on the east side of the business.
She said several drawers had
been rifled through and things
were moved.
In other property crimes re-
ported this past week:


Melvin Smith Jr. said the
homemade utility trailer he left
behind his Sanderson residence
in August was no longer there af-
ter he returned October 11.
The victim's sister-in-law said
she noted an older model truck at
the home, 14046 CR 122, around
noon on October o1. The 13-foot
trailer is black with a wooden
deck and valued at about $800.
The tag to Harold Stokes'
trailer went missing from the
Macclenny dirt pit on the south
side of Steel Bridge Road were
his employee Michael Bowie of
Jacksonville left it for several


days. Mr. Bowie reported it miss-
ing the morning of October 14.
A 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass
reported stolen in Suwannee
County turned up wheelless with
a broken window and missing
radio at the Sanderson residence
of Raymond Paige, 14172 Annie
Mae Paige Rd.
Mr. Paige flagged down Dep-
uty Scotty Rhoden at Cuz's One
Stop the morning of October 13,
saying the vehicle appeared after
he returned home the previous
evening about 8:30 pm.

repaving


to begin
An improvement project
on County Road 125 in Glen
St. Mary began this week with
daytime lane closures expected
between US 90 and Glen Haven
Lane, about two miles north of
downtown Glen.
The 2.3-mile long roadway
will be resurfaced and nearly 60
drainage pipes or culverts lo-
cated alongside the roadway will
be retrofitted with slanted ends
to meet the latest safety require-
ments. Crews will spend the first
two to three weeks on the job
working on the drainage pipes
and minimal traffic impacts are
expected.
However, when the resurfac-
ing begins in about three weeks,
motorists should expect daytime
lane closures after 8:30 am each
weekday for the duration of the
70-day long project.
Lanes will be open between
6:00-8:30 am weekdays to
minimize traffic delays for those
headed to school or work. The
contractor does not plan to work
weekends.
The cost of the project is
$583,450 and is being funded
by the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009. The
Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) is managing
the project for Baker County
and has hired V.E. Whitehurst
& Sons, Inc., of Williston as the
contractor.
The project is one of 50 in
Northeast Florida supported
with the federal economic stimu-
lus funds.

It's that busy time ofyear!

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


A motorist stopped in north
Macclenny because he wasn't
wearing a seat belt turned out
to be an habitual traffic offender
with a dozen prior license sus-
pensions.
Deputy Patrick McGauley
said he spotted Ernest Smith, 40,
of Baldwin driving a 1998 Ford
northbound on SR 228 the after-
noon of October 12 and stopped
him near the new county jail. A
computer check revealed the
prior suspensions and Mr. Smith
was taken into custody. A relative
claimed the vehicle.
In similar cases, Richard Mul-
lins, 27, of Clay City, Kentucky
was stopped for speeding on


Interstate 10 about 4:15 am on
October 13 and a computer check
showed his license with five prior
suspensions in his home state.
Deputy Daniel Nichols ar-
rested Mr. Mullins and issued a
warning ticket for going 83 mph
in a 70 mph zone near Sander-
son.
The same deputy arrested
Elick Griffis, 22, of Glen St. Mary
after stopping him late on Octo-
ber 17 for running a stop light on
South 6th St. in Macclenny.
Mr. Griffis' license has three
prior suspensions and he was
ticketed for having the incor-
rect license tag on his 1993 Ford
pickup.

Raiford Road's 26th festival


Tenant signed up for TV


Estimated

1200 there

KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Raiford Road Church's Fall
Festival, started by Sunday
school superintendent Willard
Garvin 26 years ago, has offered
families an afternoon of fun,
food, recreation and fellowship
every year since.
This year's festival held Oc-
tober 17 catered to nearly 1200
visitors. Best of all, everything,
including food, is always free. The
festival embodies the church's
desire to share its love of Jesus
with the world and the people of
Baker County.
"It's Raiford Road's gift to the
community," said Barb Harvill, a
church member working at the
festival last Saturday. "We be-
lieve this is what the first century
Christian church was like in its
spirit of sharing and giving. We
want to make it possible for all
families rich, poor, young and
old to enjoy a safe and happy af-
ternoon of celebration and fun."
The congregation donates
prizes, food, candy and cakes that
are given away. Weeks before the
festival, members start bringing
in bags of candy, which quickly
add up to hundreds of pounds.
"It's astonishing the amount
of candy that comes through this
place," said Ms. Harvill. '"The lo-
cal retailers must love us."
The festival is a family affair
and geared toward children.
Families register at a table at the
entrance to the festival when they
arrive and fill out a visitor's form.
The information helps provide
the church office with a count,
particularly of children who at-
tend, and helps predict the size
of festival attendance for the next
year.
"Mavis Griffis, one of the
church's founding members, is
our traditional greeter," said Ms.
Harvill. "She is always at the reg-
istration table to welcome people
to the festival."
During registration, kids are
given a tote bag to hold the prizes
and candy they collect through-
out the afternoon. They're also
signed up for a game to guess
how many jelly beans are in ajar
and a drawing for a prize is held
at a later date. Everyone is invit-
ed to sign up for another drawing
to win a $50 gift certificate to the
Cracker Barrel restaurant.
Lots of brightly decorated
booths manned with teen and
adult volunteers invite kids to
challenge their skills. Food is
abundant at the festival as well,
and some volunteers sign up to
do the same food duties over and
over. According to Ms. Harvill,
her son and daughter-in-law,
Butch and Kay Harvill, along
with friends Dan and Christy
Sellers, have been cooking the
funnel cakes for so many years,
it's become a family tradition.
The line of people waiting
for funnel cakes was always the
longest as the crispy fried batter
is the most popular treat at the
festival.
"We've got it down to a sci-
ence," said Butch as he shot bat-
ter into the hot oil of the cooker
with a narrow nozzle, creating a
criss-cross pattern. In a few min-
utes the funnel cake was golden
brown. Wife Kay scooped it up
onto a paper plate. Then it was
passed down the line, where it
was showered with powdered
sugar and handed to the next
grateful recipient.
The cakewalk is also a popular
booth and participants often go
home with two cakes.
"Our members bake and do-
nate so many cakes that some-
times we give away more than
one as a prize," said Ms. Harvill.

Several cases of fraud and
forgery were reported recently to
the sheriffs department, includ-
ing an allegation by a landlord
that a former tenant secured a
cable TV service in his name.
Lee Gross said he received a
bill for nearly $300 from Direct
TV for cable at a rental unit once
occupied by Christina Fuller, 42,
of Baldwin. He accused her of ob-
taining the service fraudulently,
and Deputy Jeff Shouse filed a
criminal complaint based on Mr.
Gross' statement.
The allegation was reported
October 12.
In other cases, Lettie Whitener
called police when she suspected
she was duped out of $226 that
was supposed to be used to repair
her grandson's vehicle.
Ms. Whitener, 80, told Deputy
Patrick McGauley she received a
telephone call the afternoon of
October 13 from a person she
believed was her grandson, who
lives in Lake Wales. He indicated
he was sending a friend to her
residence in Macclenny to pick
up the money.
Ms. Whitener said a white
male about 25 years old and
nearly six feet tall showed up at
her house for the money driving
a dark colored car. When she
later checked with her grandson,
he claimed to know nothing of
the matter.
Robbie Dorminey, 58, of
Jacksonville was named in a
criminal complaint for defraud-
ing Walter Johns of Macclenny
of $550 paid by check in late July
as down payment on a generator
he never received.
Sheriffs investigator Steve
Harvey made several attempts to
contact Mr. Dorminey following
the complaint on October 13. Mr.
Johns likewise said he had been
unsuccessful making contact
with the accused.
John Manucy of Sanderson


*11risngD1.ln
Monda


said he was notified he owed
$1097 for a past due electric
bill in New York. The collection
agency had his Social Security
number and address, and said
the bills ranged back to Novem-
ber, 1994.
Mr. Manucy told Sgt. Thomas
Dyal he was 12 years old in 1994.
A criminal complaint for


forgery was made naming Yelena
Breedlove of Jacksonville for
writing a $120 check to Kelli Hig-
ginbotham of Macclenny on Sep-
tember 15. The victim, who made
the complaint October 14, said
the account was closed.
The check was for hair salon
services.

A celebration
oflife
A daughter, a sister, a wife,
a mother, a grandmother, or
perhaps a business colleague,
and best friend. Each of these
describe my mother, Linda
Gayle Linton. But above all,
she was a woman of wisdom,
compassion, grace, beauty,
and selflessness.
Linda Gayle Tanner Linton
was born in Tampa, Florida
in 1944. She was one of four
children born to Evelyn Johns
Tanner of Macclenny, Florida
and the late Remer Tanner.
She had two sisters, Diane
Greatrex of Beverly Hills,
Florida, and Frances Head-
rick of Lake City, Florida and
one brother, Larry Tanner of
Macclenny, Florida.
On a lovely September
evening in 1965, she mar-
ried her husband of 43 years,
Robert Lamar Linton. In this,
Linda gained a mother and
father-in-law, Betty and the
late Robert Linton, and a sis-
ter-in-law, Frankie Stewart,
all of Marianna, Florida. Af-
ter several years of marriage,
Lamar and Linda had three
children, Robert Christopher
Linton of Branford, Florida,
Daleann Linton Worthington
of Jasper, Florida, and Jer-
rette Lamar Linton of Mayo,
Florida.
She worked with Lamar
many years in the logging
business in Branford and
owned a Napa auto parts
store in Jasper. Linda lived,
worked, and loved the quaint
town of Jasper so much that
she made Jasper her primary
residence with her husband
Lamar. For over 25 years
they lived in Branford, Flor-
ida, where they raised their
children and presently have
a farm.
Linda was able to wit-
ness many wonderful things
in her life, such as the mar-
riages of their oldest son
Chris to Brandi Waters, their
only daughter Daleann to
Doyle Worthington Jr. and
their youngest son Jerrette to
Frankie Starling.
Through the years, she en-
joyed seven grandchildren:
Taylor and Lucus Linton, the
children of Frankie and Jer-
rette Linton; Reagan, Chloe
and Trevor Linton, the chil-
dren of Brandi and Chris
Linton, and Anna-Marie
and Doyle Worthington III.,
twins of Daleann and Doyle
Worthington.
Six weeks after being diag-
nosed, Linda lost her battle
with cancer on September
6, 2009. Her memorial was
held at Burnham Christian
Church in Jennings, Florida,
where she was a member, on
September 9, 2009. Johnny
Brown and Elder Arnold
Johns officiated at the beau-
tiful morning service. Follow-
ing the ceremony, a luncheon
social was hosted by numer-
ous ladies in the church com-
munity in the fellowship hall.
We will miss her so. Dona-
tions can be in her name to
Burnham Christian Church,
4520 NW County Road 146,
Jennings, Florida 32053.

"I'm Free"
Don't grieve for me, for now
I'm free. I'm following the path
God laid for me. I took His
hand when I heard Him call, I
turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day to
laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay
that way. Found that place at
the close of day. If my passing
has left a void, then fill it with
remembered joy. A friendship
shared, a laugh, a kiss. Ah yes,
these things, I too, will miss.
Be not burdened with times of
sorrow. I wish you the sunshine
of tomorrow. My life's been full,
I savored much good friends,
good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all
too brief; don't lengthen it now
with undue grief. Lift up your
heart and share with me; God
wanted me now, He set me free.

Wildcats win 36-0 against Solid Rock academy


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
Though the Baker High Wild-
cat football team ran its record
to 6-1 with a 36-0 win over Solid
Rock Christian Academy at home
last Friday, it was not the romp
that Wildcat fans expected.
In fact, with the exception of
two big plays early in the game,
the Christians played the Wild-
cats surprisingly well and trailed
by only 15-0 at the half.
Solid Rock is a first-year school
from Miami and thus playing
a limited schedule this season.
They have traveled north to take
on University Christian and the
Wildcats. UC defeated them 35-
o, but very little is known about
the team.
The Wildcats started the game
like they did the previous week
with a quick strike. They got an-
other whiplash touchdown from
Harold Moore, who struck within
16 seconds of the game's opening
on a 61-yard touchdown return.
The Christians were rocked by
the quick score, but not knocked
out of the game.
Add that to the Cats not play-
ing at the top of their game and
it became a frustrating half for
Coach Bobby Johns.
"Without that big play on the
kickoff we'd be going in up 7-0,"
he said.
The Cats were guilty of looking
ahead to this week's game with
Raines and it showed in their ex-
ecution October 16.
"We were all looking ahead
to Raines. If I'm looking ahead,
everybody is looking ahead and
it was an example of us not be-
ing ready to play no question,"
said Johns.


Solid Rock had not encoun-
tered a defense as quick and
physical as the Wildcats and
couldn't manage much on of-
fense. Neither their running or
passing game were very effective
against one of the area's top de-
fensive units, and they had to rely
on their defense to keep things
close.
For the first half they did that
pretty effectively. The Wildcats
moved the ball well and scored
a second touchdown on a 4-yard
Darvin Ruise plunge, but they
weren't able to score a lot of
points against a determined Solid
Rock defense.
"Most of it was us not playing

jump around and move around
and we would miss a block and
they would make a tackle."
For the first half, the Chris-
tians frustrated the hometown
crowd that expected a big lead by
half time.
Coach Bobby Johns had
hoped to be able to get the game
in hand early so he could substi-
tute freely and give some of his
second string players valuable
game time. But it didn't turn out
that way and the Cats kept their
first string in the game until deep
into the third period.
Coach Johns changed his
strategy in the second half, say-
ing, "We tried some things in the
shotgun that we wanted to work
on and in the second half Darvin
got up under center and we ran
the ball right at them."
The change worked immedi-
ately and the Wildcats drove the
ball 50 yards to pay dirt. Moore
and Rueben Jackson pushed
down the field on a 6-play drive.
Ruise hit Tymachee Givens at the
4 and then ran it in for the score.
"We just got tired of messing
around with them," said Johns.
Solid Rock quarterback Dom-
inic Smith had some success
against the Wildcat secondary
but couldn't sustain a drive and
the Cats got the ball right back.
Harold Moore took the punt
and ran 50 yards for the touch-
down to put BCHS up 29-0.
The final score resulted from a
BCHS drive from the opponent's
45 yard line and was highlighted
by a 32-yard touchdown scamper
by Moore.
With the exception of Moore,
the Wildcats were not particular-
ly impressive in a game against
the first year team.
The Cats can't be blamed if

they looked ahead to this week's
key district match-up with the
Raines Vikings. Both teams go
into the contest with 2-0 dis-
trict records and it's a game that
Johns pointed toward at the start
of the season.
"We thought Ribault would
be good, but we didn't know a lot
about them. But we know Raines
would be a big game," said the
coach.
Raines has size, speed and
physicality. "To say they are
huge is an understatement," said
Johns.
The Cats host Raines at Me-
morial Stadium on Friday at 7:30
pm.


'Big' Raines on deck


Huge.
If you were to pick out a word
that fits the Raines Vikings, it
would be huge. Or gigantic. Or
maybe massive. Any of those
would fit.
The Vikings are big and strong
and physical and the Baker High
Wildcats know from past experi-
ence they will be in for a battle on
Friday when they play host to the
powerhouse. Their offensive and
defensive line hovers around the
300 pound mark with 6'2 defen-
sive tackle Louis Nix weighing in
at 320.
The Vikings are loaded with
talented players and with numer-
ous Division 1 prospects. None-
theless, with losses to Jackson,
White and Sandlewood, the Vi-
kings have struggled a little this
year.
It's the second year in a row
that the storied program has had
the talent, but hasn't been able to
eke out a lot of wins. Last year the
Vikings went 2-8 and the Wild-
cats handed them a 26-6 loss at
home in Jacksonville.
The Vikings have already bet-
tered last year's record with a 3-3
mark, including victories over
Baldwin, Suwannee and Lee.


They are much improved and
their 49-14 victory over the Bull-
dogs demonstrates that.
Last week, quarterback He-
man Tapley connected with his
brother Sean for a pair of touch-
downs in the win over Lee. Sean
Tapleyis an experienced receiver;
Herman Tapley tossed for 209
yards that night.
Running back Freeman Dozi-
er is also a threat for the Vikings.
Though they relied more on Ta-
pley's arm versus Lee, Dozier is
capable of breaking big runs.
Defensively the Vikings are
led by tackle Nix. The Division
1 prospect blew through the Lee
Generals offensive line for sever-
al sacks on Friday. They also have
speed and good hands at defen-
sive back. Leroy Pate can pick off
balls thrown in his direction and
knows what to do with a ball in
his hands.
To top it off, both the Wildcats
and the Vikings are 2-0 in the
district, and a victory could go a
long way to securing the district
title and a spot in the playoffs.
If you want to see some hard-
nosed football, the place to be on
Friday night is Memorial Sta-
dium.


Results of opponents


Here's how some of the Cat
opponents past and future did on
the weekend:
Crescent City was handed only
its second loss of the season at the
hands of Melbourne Central Catho-
lic. The Raiders lost 34-14 to the
central Florida powerhouse.
Bradford County handed PK
Yonge a 44-6 loss at home in Starke.
Ribault pounded the Forrest
Rebels 44-7 as they had another big
day throwing the ball. The Trojans


have a big game next week against
the Suwannee Bulldogs.
The Raines Vikings got a big win
over old time rivals the Lee Gener-
als. The Vikings shut down the Gen-
erals and took away a 36-8 win at
the Graveyard.
ACD traveled to Gainesville to
take on Oak Hall. It was a pleasant
trip for the Apaches as they rolled
72-3. After losing their opener to Yu-
lee, ACD has reeled off five straight.
Three opponents were off.

Haunted


old jail

returns

Halloween fright nights at
the old county jail will be at 7:oo
pm on Saturday, October 24 and
then again Friday and Saturday,
October 30 and October 31. The
Baker County Historical Soci-
ety and the Baker County High
School History Club have teamed
up again to bring you the scare of
your life!
All proceeds from the haunted
jail, tours and refreshment sales
contribute to the History Club's
annual trips, and the Old Jail's
preservation and restoration. A
less frightening candlelight tour
of the former sheriffs office and
quarters next door offers inter-
esting history about the Old Jail.
Come and join us each night
for an experience you won't for-
get at West 42 McIver Street next
to the Taber Library!


Members of the Baker High history club ready and waiting for Fright Nights to
begin this Saturday at the old jail. Proceeds benefit the club.


Dear Walmart,
I sincerely apologize for taking things that did not be-
long to me. My stupidity at that moment made me act
in a reckless way. In hindsight, I know I did the wrong
thing. I sincerely regret my actions and honestly hope
that you would be able to forgive me. I would like to
assure you that I shall never resort to such an unethical
means in the future.
Sincerely, Angelica Nobles


JOE DARASKEVICH I SPORTS
Cross country teammates be-
gin each race together and then
congratulate each other at the
end, but every runner on the
BCHS team realizes that five ki-
lometers of isolated running is
more about team pride than their
individual stride.
"First and foremost, we want to
create a team atmosphere," head
coach Charles Ruise said. "The
team comes first and individuals
come later. When the team rises
to the top, our individual times
will take care of themselves."
The girls' team got one of its
best individuals back for a meet
on Thursday, October 15, when
Alex Rhode returned from an ill-
ness to place second overall with
a time of 22:05.
The race was Rhode's first
since September and Ruise
is confident her times will be
quicker in the weeks leading up
to the district meet November 5
at Bishop Kenny.
"She's the pace setter for us,"
Ruise said. "If she can finish at
the top it gives our team a good
chance to succeed."


Senior

week at

LCCC
Senior Emphasis Week for
persons 55 and older will be held
on November 2-4 in the Lake
City Medical Center Auditorium
on the Lake City Community Col-
lege campus. This event will in-
clude health education, fun, food
and games.
The schedule includes a daily
continental breakfast and time
to visit with friends at 8:30 am.
Guest speakers and student pre-
sentations will begin at 9:oo and
lunch will be served each day
with the activities ending at 1:30
in the afternoon.
There is no cost for program
participation. A potluck covered
dish luncheon will be held the
final day where guests may bring
a favorite food to share with the
group. You do not need to bring a
food item in order to participate
in the activities or the luncheon.
If you have any questions call
Henrietta Pope, LCCC professor
of nursing at (386) 754-4319.
Bring a friend and neighbor to
participate with you.

Helping hand
Carol Burnsed and family are
trying to start an organization to
raise money, clothes, furniture
and appliances for needy families
in the area. Leftover items will
then be sold at a fund raiser yard
sale to provide Thanksgiving and
Christmas for these families.
For more information or to
donate items, please call Carol at
259-3747.

Many thanks
I would like to thank Kent
Williams of Diamond Timber
Company for purchasing the
Grand Champion hog at the
2009 Baker County Fair. His
support of the Baker County
youth is greatly appreciated.
SINCERELY,
TAYLOR TRULUCK


Both teams succeeded last
Thursday in the home meet that
featured Yulee and Hilliard. The
boys finished first with 23 points,
Yulee finished second with 32
and Hilliard ended up with 49.
The girls won with 21 points
with Hilliard and Yulee taking
second and third.
The girls' leader returned to
action last Thursday, but Chris
Tran has been emerging all sea-
son as the clear-cut top runner
on the boys' side. He finished first
overall with a time of 21:21 and is
always a favorite to win any race
he enters.
"The boys having Chris Tran
maintaining his finishes has been
huge," Ruise said. "We've been
securing team titles with him fin-
ishing near the top every time."
Ruise is proud of his top run-
ners and thinks Rhode can repre-
sent Baker County in the regional
meet. He also understands the
importance of the team's sup-
porting cast.
"I've got to give a lot of props
to Autumn Jackson because last
year she was one of our beginning
runners," Ruise said. "Her times


don't indicate her improvement,
but she's really come a long way
to become a contributor on this
year's team."
Another runner who's been a
real team player is Carissa Ward.
Her determination has been
noted throughout the season as
she has battled respiratory ills all
year.
"It was a major help having
her in our lineup the other day,"
Ruise said. "She's our caboose
and really gets the girls motivat-
ed. 5K is no joke and to see her
battle to finish has been inspiring
for the rest of the team."
The boys will look to Bradley
Mareth, Corey Sweeney and Dil-
lon Kett to turn in good times
in the district meet and the girls
hope Kayla Eligino can keep up
her quick pace. With those run-
ners, along with the Davis sib-
lings, Noah and Catherine, the
Wildcats are setting up nicely for
the districts in November.
"We finally got our girls' team
filled out with Alex back," Ruise
said. "So now the rest of the sea-
son should feel a little more down
hill."
