Baxter

neighbors

hostile to

cameras

at dump

JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Even testing a proposal to
replace dump attendants with
security cameras is proving
increasingly difficult in Baxter,
where last week neighborhood
residents opposed the idea in a
meeting with County Commis-
sioner Mike Griffis.
About 20 residents of the
north county communityjoined
the commissioner at the Baxter
fire station the evening of No-
vember 6 to share their con-
cerns, while Mr. Griffis hoped
to assure the group that a deci-
sion on the cameras hasn't been
made yet.
"It was a very good meeting,"
Mr. Griffis said this week. 'They
had concerns; legitimate con-
cerns. I explained this would
simply be a test an idea that
came up to see if there was a
way to save some money in the
future."
Today the county has
$187,000 annual management
contract for eight trash collec-
tion sites with Mark Wood's
Southeastern Services Inc.
[SSI], which pays the atten-
dants about $10 an hour.
Mr. Woods has agreed to
adjust the contract amount if
and when security cameras are
installed, said County Manager
Joe Cone.
Last month the commission,
at the suggestion of Commis-
sioner Michael Crews, asked
Mr. Cone to begin investigating
what savings could be achieved
by using cameras and signs at
the dump sites in lieu of man-
ning them.
The cameras were estimated
to cost about $1500 apiece and
Internet monitoring would cost
another $45 per month. The
only other actions taken were
to inform the Baxter attendant
of the possible change, said Mr.
Cone.
Nancy Foss lives across
the street from the Baxter col-
lection site and was pleased
with Mr. Griffis' interest in the
community's input. "He faced
us straight on ... He probably
changed a lot of people's minds
about county commissioners,"
she said.
Nonetheless, Ms. Foss re-
mains opposed to eliminating
the dump attendant, who en-

CATS CLINCH DISTRICT


Offense, defense gang up on Ribault in playoff,


BOB GERARD I SPORTS

For the Wildcats it was definitely a "be
careful what you wish for" situation
on Monday. To win the district they
had to face off against Ribault and Raines in
a three-way playoff. In a complex scenario,
it was possible that if things didn't go their
way, the Cats might be shut out of the play-
offs completely.
As it was, the Wildcats, with the weather and home field
advantage playing a big part, dominated the Ribault Tro-
jans to take a 21-7 win and the district crown.
The Cats will now host Madison County in the first
round of the playoffs November 20.
It was an exciting atmosphere in Memorial Stadium.
The Cats had home field advantage by virtue of a better
record and a win over Ribault. That meant the Trojans and
the Vikings would pound away at each other for a quarter
and the Wildcats got to take on the winner.

Money there


for paving...i


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Cow Pen Road west of Glen
St. Mary has been a thorn in the
side of county officials saddled
with maintaining the often
muddy or dusty thruway and
central county residents who
travel it. The easy answer has
always been to pave it, but com-
ing up with more than half-a-
million dollars to cover the bill
has eluded the county for some
time.
The newest strategy is com-
bining about $213,000 received
from the Florida Department
of Transportation [FDOT] in
2001 for the
closing of two
railroad cross-
ings in Olustee
and Sanderson
with a roughly
$395,000 one-
time disaster
recovery grant
from the US
Department of
Housing and
Urban Develop-
ment [HUD]
that's tied to
impacts of last
year's Tropical
Storm Fay.
"As long as Cow F
we submit a
legitimate ap-
plication, we should get it,"
said county grants coordinator
Maurice Postal.
The application is due in
January with an award through
HUD's Community Develop-
ment Block Grant program
expected in June 2010. The
project must also be finished by
June 2012 to remain eligible.
The money will have to be
shared with the Town of Glen


0


and City of Macclenny as well,
assuming the municipalities
have documentation of Fay-re-
lated damage.
"They'll definitely want doc-
umentation," said Mr. Postal,
adding that the money can only
be used in areas that sustained
damage during the storm,
which saturated Baker County
with more than to inches of
rain in less than a week.
The FDOT funds are not re-
stricted, said road department

Pen Road near the intersection with Fred Harvey I


director Robert Fletcher. He
said the county has fulfilled its
only obligation closing the
crossings.
"We can do anything we want
with it," said Mr. Fletcher.
The question is whether the
roughly $608,000 in combined
monies will be enough to pave
Cow Pen Road from US 90
about 2.5 miles north to Ten-
nessee Street.


"It's
going
to be a
pretty
expen-
sive
road," said Mr. Fletcher. Exten-
sive drainage work could push
the project's total cost above the
available funding, he said.
The first step is hiring an
engineer to design and permit
the project, a process the Baker
County Commission initiated
during its November 3 meet-
ing.
When the county advertised
for the engineering to resurface
Mud Lake and Woodlawn roads,

Joe Cone said 11

D BY JOEL ADDINGTON adding CowPen
Road. Road to the list
of projects and
assigning each
engineer a different project.
That strategy, he said, would
help to ensure timely comple-
tion of Mud Lake and Wood-
lawn roads, which per grant
requirements must be finished
by December 2010. The resur-
facing jobs are being funded
through $515,870 from the

Ribault had backed into the playoff. With 30 seconds
to go in Saturday's match-up with Raines, the Vikings had
the lead. Then Malik Jackson found Javon Bell for the re-
ceiver's fourth touchdown of the day and Ribault had the
win and a place in the playoff.
The Vikings and Trojans squared off, the second time
in a week for these traditional rivals from Jacksonville's
north side. The game was a defensive battle, with neither
team having much of an edge. They would get close and
the other team would stop them. Finally, Ribault hit a 33-
yard field goal that proved the difference.
The Wildcats, with their emotional leader Milton
O'Shay Johnson on the sidelines, were determined not to
let Javon Bell be the difference when it was their turn to
take the field. They double-covered the fleet receiver and
relied on their punishing defense to make the difference in
the brief contest.
The Troj ans improvised by going to their running game,
which initially threw the Cats a little off guard. William
Union had some success running the ball, but it was still
Bell who was the weapon.
Cody Wheeler, who had one of his best games of his
career, almost intercepted quarterback Damien Flem-

Six among honored vets

302 recognized at NAS ceremony


Congressman Ander
Crenshaw honored vet-
erans in the 4th Con-
gressional District for
the eighth time since
2001 the morning of
November 9, bringing
the list of those recog-
nized for their service
to more than 2000, in-
eluding more than 800
Vietnam-era veterans.
Robert Eldridge and
August Thick, both
Army vets residing in if
Macclenny, were among
the 302 Vietnam-era
servicemen honored
this year during a two-
hour ceremony at the
Naval Air Station in
Jacksonville.
"Our Vietnam-era
veterans bravely an-
swered the call of duty, Congressma
but when they returned
home, many did not re-
ceive the recognition that they so rightly deserved,"
said Mr. Crenshaw, a member of the Appropriations
Subcommittee on Military Construction and Vet-
erans Affairs. "This ceremony is about shining the
light on their service and formally thanking them for
their contributions to this country. I am honored tc
show my appreciation for their sacrifices and make
sure others have the opportunity to better under-
stand their courage."
Mr. Thick served as a heavy vehicle operator from
1970-74 in Korea where he helped perfect supply de-
livery operations from sea.
The sergeant at Union Correctional Institute is
retiring at the end of the year to travel, and plans tc
spend Veterans' Day with his grandchildren observ-
ing the Jacksonville Veterans' Day parade.
Mr. Eldridge served as a field artillery observer
clearing routes of egress in Saigan during 1968-69.
He's also a recipient of the Bronze Star, Meritori-
ous Service and RVN [Republic
of Vietnam] Gallantry Cross with
Palm medals.

The children, their
grandmother and Mr.
Eldridge's wife Susan
all attended the cer-
emony.
He said remem-
bering the bonding
that men had on the
battlefield and how it
remained years later
moved him.
"There's a manhood
that permeates the
battlefield," he said.
"My mind drifted back
to where these men
bonded. Each one of
them was a microcosm
of what happened in
Vietnam."
This year's event
honored contributions
of all those who served
ler Crenshaw. in the armed forces
during the Vietnam
War, including the
Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and Foreign Service
officers. The ceremony included a presentation of
certificates by Mr. Crenshaw and Navy Rear Admi-
ral Tim Alexander, a reading of Old Glory, a 21-gun
salute and a playing of Taps.
"With American servicemen and women at war in
Iraq and Afghanistan, it is more important than ever
that we take time and recognize their brave prede-
cessors on Veterans' Day," said Mr. Crenshaw. "On
this day, we express gratitude to those who fought
tyranny, sometimes paying with their lives, so that
we may continue to live in freedom."
Also honored from Baker County were Marnie
Collins of Glen St. Mary, Tommy Bullard of Mac-
clenny, both Army veterans; Navy veteran Frank
Cohenour of Macclenny, and Marine Corps veteran
Michael Kisio of Sanderson.

( distance Program (SCRAP).
Also, obtaining a five-year
permit now for paving Cow Pen
Road would fast-track the proj-
ect, allowing work to commence
as soon as funding is secured.
Design and permitting for
Mud Lake was assigned to King
Engineering and Tarbox Consult-
ing received the same for Wood-

engineering work on Cow Pen

The board authorized the

ating with the above firms and
bring contracts back for the com-
mission's approval.
Troy Tarbox's past perfor-
mance, particularly delays expe-
rienced on the St. Mary's Shoals
Park entrance, worried some
commissioners; however.
"Woodlawn Road is tough,"
said Commissioner Alex Robin-
son. "I wonder if [Mr. Tarbox]

"He's assured me that he could

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR



FairTax would


trigger reforms


Dear Editor:
Unemployment seems to be a
problem these days, with statis-
tics indicating a current rate of
9.5% for the nation some re-
gions worse and some better.
While one can attribute the
current unemployment rates to
several factors, there is one in
particular that stands out, an
inherent lack of employers will-
ing to hire skilled Americans.
For years our employers have
fled these great United States for
other overseas nations, and they
continue to do so today.
We need to ask ourselves one
very simple question: Why are
they leaving the greatest nation
this earth has ever seen in favor
of developing third world coun-
tries? You could say they are evil
capitalist corporations who don't
care about the worker and his
family, or you could say that it's
the "fat cats" in charge trying to
make the stockholders happy.
I submit that the United States
of America no longer rewards
achievement but rather punishes
it and these corporations are
seeking a more true free market
system in which to conduct busi-
ness, one like what America used
to practice where you can earn
money without excessive taxa-
tion.
I don't blame them; we all do
the same thing. At least once a
year we try to figure out how to
keep more of our hard earned
money before the IRS forcibly
takes it from us forever. When
companies move factories over-
seas, more often than not the
deciding factor is not a cheaper
workforce nor a search for more
highly skilled persons. Much to
the contrary, it's how much they
can potentially save in taxes.
The Wall Street Journal ran a
story on October 10, 2007 about
manufacturing giant 3M moving
its operations overseas, citing
"attempts to reduce its overall tax
rate" as a prevalent factor in its


decision. If we want more jobs,
doesn't it make sense to make it
irresistible for employers to come
back to the United States by
making this country a tax haven
instead of a taxing tsunami ham-
mering down on its citizenry?
How could we let a nation
whose beginnings were partly
brought about due to a half cent
tax on tea become one of the
most heavily taxed countries on
the planet? Enough already!
Take some time and read the
bill HR 25 in the House of Rep-
resentatives, otherwise known as
the FairTax. The FairTax would
take great steps to resolving
many issues in our economy by
repealing the income tax, as well
as all embedded federal taxes
on our goods, and forcing illegal
immigrants to contribute to our
retirement system (aka Social
Security) without reaping the
benefits.
The FairTax would allow the
market to freely operate with-
out taxation on the providers of
your job. Former chairman of
the Federal Reserve Bank, Alan
Greenspan, said that if the Fair-
Tax were enacted it would not
take years but rather a matter of
mere months before we'd see a
surge in companies bringing fac-
tories and operations back to the
United States, and jobs for skilled
Americans with them.
The benefits of tax reform such
as proposed by the FairTax are so
great and astute that I fail to see
why we as a people ruled by none
other than themselves are not de-
manding its enactment from our
representatives. And as far as the
benefits of such reform go, the
ones briefly mentioned here are
merely the beginnings of copious
economic liberties which would
be restored to every citizen of this
great nation, should enactment
and ratification of HR 25 come
to light.

'Boater' promote


THE BACK

PORCH
Kelley Lannigan a
I met an interesting fella in the
parking lot of Applebee's in Lake City
where I had dinner last week with a
friend. We left the restaurant to dis-
cover a most unique vehicle in the
parking lot.
Was it a boat? A car? On closer in-
spection, it seemed to be both. It was
bright blue and white, festooned with
dolphins on the sides and top and
looked for all the world like a parade
float.
Then "Captain" Troy, the owner, appeared and was happy to share
some info about his off-beat mode of transportation in which he travels
around the United States.
"I think of this as a boater home," he said. "Myjourney is one of faith
so I call my vehicle the, "I'm Possible."'


Hall cartoon award...


Ed Hall was recently
awarded a third place in the
category of editorial car-
toons by the Florida Press
Club's Excellence in Jour-
nalism awards, a compila-
tion of both weekly and dai-
ly newspapers in the state.
Mr. Hall, who lives in
Jacksonville, has drawn


cartoons for the newspaper
for nearly two decades, and
has garnered a stable ofna-
tional and state awards.
Mr. Hall this year also
won a third place in the
Florida Press Association's
Better Newspaper Contest.
The honoree is a self-em-
ployed house plan designer.


es a happy life'

Captain Troy's permanent resi-
dence is in Minnesota. On this trip he
is slowly making his way down to Key
West, where he will spend the winter.
He only drives when the temperature
'is above 45 degrees and never goes
faster than 50 mph.
SThe captain says he has a passion
for making people happy and for
helping them, which ultimately led
him to cut a motor boat in half and
weld it onto a van. He uses his crazy
car to help raise money for several
charities, including The Make A Wish
Foundation.
"I travel around and pitch my ideas
for fund raisers to the different chari-
table organizations. When one is in-
terested, I staying that area for a while. Sometimes I get a temporaryjob
to support myself while I'm there," he explained.
The I'm Possible attracts attention wherever it goes. Adults love it
as much as children. Captain Troy basks in the interaction with people
and loves to blow the boat horn for kids. He gives away pictures too,
which he autographs with, "Have a happy life," and a verse from the
Bible, John 3:16.
He lives on the road, sleeping
in the boater home, often in the
Sparking lots of gas stations and
other businesses. He says he is
sustained by people's generosity.
"Most places have a policy
about loitering, but I always go
in and talk to the owner and they
usually never have a problem
with me staying overnight," he
said. "I buy something too, usu-
ally some gas."
Captain Troy was headed to-
ward Jacksonville when I met up
with him, so I told him to call me
when he passed through Mac-
clenny. The next day, he pulled
up in front of The Press office and
blew the boat horn. It sounded
like the Titanic was coming down
)1 5th Street. He then instructed
me on the easiest way to climb
aboard the I'm Possible.
"You can use the ladder on the
side," he told me.
I had to negotiate a surf board
in order to get into the passenger
side. The I'm Possible has three
surf boards mounted on its deck
and I had to climb over the center
one and drop down into the seat.
It was a gorgeous afternoon
and in the open air of the "deck"
it was easy to believe I was actu-
ally out on the ocean in a boat.
We got surprised looks as
we drove around Macclenny,
naturally. In the parking lot of
Woody's curious passers-by
stopped for a closer look.
He was right. People respond-
i11 ed to the I'm Possible like excited
kids finding their heart's desire
under the Christmas tree.
Captain Troy was in his ele-
ment, talking and laughing with
people, wishing them a happy
life. We had lunch, then he
dropped me back at work and
headed down the highway.
"See you next year!" he shout-
ed as he waved and drove away.

bled times and help people at the

If indeed this plan passes
the Senate and gets President
Obama's signature, it could be
an opportunity for me. With mil-
lions more people then eligible
for health care in the U.S., it's a
way for me to branch out into a
new and lucrative field.
An estimated 40 million
Americans are uninsured or
have sketchy health care at best,
so with the new health care plan
these folks will feel free to get that
check up they've been putting off
for months because they needed
their slim salaries for non-essen-
tial things like eating and having
a place to sleep.
That means the health care
system as we know it could soon
be overwhelmed with millions of
sick people needing care. I could
step in and help bridge the gap
between critical care and non-
critical care.
Bob's Home Health Care is the
answer.

good opportunity to conduct in-
vestigations."
JPRS has been active at the
jail before. Back in May a team
found the Mclver St. structure
that has been unused since the
early 1970s to have a high level of
paranormal activity.
"We got evidence like crazy,"
said Ms. Gaunder.
When the group was consid-
ering the jail for some of its re-
search, Ms. Gaunder conducted
a pre-investigation during which
she documented two EVP (elec-
tronic voice phenomenon) read-
ings.
"One was a strong heartbeat,"
said Ms. Gaunder. "The other
was a voice that said, 'I'm out-
side. Come find me."'
The team returned shortly
thereafter for the May investi-
gation. It split into two groups
and using highly sensitive digital


equipment, recorded 81 EVPs
that included single words and
phrases. Some of the phrases
were "get out," "help me," "please
forgive me," and "let us out."
Some of the EVPs occurred
in direct response to questions
asked by the team. Numerous
bangs, whoops, clicking, knock-
ing and drumming noises were
documented as well.
According to Ms. Gaunder, it's
standard procedure to announce
one's presence and purpose when
entering a site of paranormal ac-
tivity. Team members routinely
ask questions of entities and
much of the EVP phenomena is
in response to those questions.
During the last investigation,
members of the team asked about
conditions in the jail during the
years it actively held prisoners.
The answer they succeeded in
recording was "horrible."
"It was awfully hot in the
building when we were there last


May," said Ms. Gaunder. "I can
only imagine what it was like to
be a prisoner there."
Ms. Gaunder, who is sensi-
tive to paranormal phenomena,
detected extreme sadness in the
oldjail's "red room" and extreme
anger in one of the downstairs
cells.
At one point a sudden noise,
like a loud bang, was recorded
in the corner of a cell. After in-
vestigating, the team could find
nothing that could have occurred
naturally to cause such a noise.
"The jail is haunted by both
male and female spirits," said
Ms. Gaunder. "My feeling is that
they want people to know they
are there and don't intend any
harm."

Baxter group hostile to cameras

sures proper disposal of garbage
so that careless dumping doesn't
impact nearby homes.
"There's no doubt he does a
good job," said Mr. Griffis. "He
cleans up every morning around
there, he monitors, and if you're
not from Baker County he doesn't
let you dump there, which is what
he's supposed to do ... Having an
attendant is the best way, but it's
also the most expensive way."
According to Ms. Foss, the
Taylor collection center is more
suited for testing the cameras.
"That dump is out in the middle
of nowhere," she said.
But, like all the other collec-
tion sites except Baxter, Taylor
is equipped with a trash compac-
tor that Mr. Griffis fears could
potentially injure someone if left
unattended. Assuming successful
testing in Baxter, the compactors
could still hinder installation of
cameras at the other sites too.
"It just doesn't make sense,"
said Ms. Foss.
The compactors, illegal dump-
ing and enforcement of dump
rules are just some of the prob-
lems county officials will consider
going forward.
"You can get a tag number, but
someone has to take the time to


run the tag number and take it to
the state attorney's office ... Or we
may want to do it through code
enforcement," said Mr. Cone.
"All these questions have to be
answered."
The matter could be brought
before the other county commis-
sioners as soon as November 16,
when Mr. Griffis intends to re-
port on the reaction from Baxter


residents.
"As far as I'm concerned we
won't change anything until com-
missioners have time to meet and
talk about these issues," he said.
"[Baxter] may not be a good place
to test this, but you can't leave a
compactor unmanned. I don't
know. We need to get together to
find another way."


Correction
A crime report in last
week's edition of The Baker
County Press stated in er-
ror that Jonathan Harris was
arrested following a dispute
involving Kyle Holton. Mr.
Holton was arrested on aggra-
vated battery while police filed
an aggravated assault charge
against Mr. Harris with the
state attorney's office.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Stabbed at state hospital


Patient accused in attack Nov. 3


A patient at Northeast Florida
State Hospital is named in a
criminal complaint for felony ag-
gravated battery following a stab-
bing on the hospital campus the
evening of November 3.
The following day, Michael
Crews, chief of hospital security,
told the sheriffs department the
25-year-old male victim identi-
fied Raul Munos, 53, as the per-
son who attacked him from be-
hind and stabbed him with either
a piece of broken glass or a knife
about 6:00 that evening.
The victim, also a patient,
was treated at Fraser Hospital's
emergency room and received 17
stitches to close the wound.
Employees Irma Hane of Mid-
dleburg and Travis Harris of Lake
City said they first saw the victim
walking down a hallway bleeding
from the neck and administered
initial first aid. The man also told
the employees that Mr. Munos
was the assailant.
The suspect told Mr. Crews he
flushed the glass down a toilet,
and the security chief advised
Deputy Matt Sigers a subsequent
search of Mr. Munos' room
turned up a rusty pocket knife
that may have been used in the
attack.
The same day that report
was made, police were told of
an attack by a 27-year-old male
patient on another male, age 30.
The victim said he was struck


Both are


charged


in cases


of battery

The sheriffs department dur-
ing the past week filed criminal
complaints for battery, two of
them involving both parties in
domestic disputes, and held off
on another one pending a look at
a surveillance video.
Complaints were filed Novem-
ber 6 against Mark Fuller, 43,
and Jimmy Sikes, 41, following
a scuffle they had at the former's
residence on North Boulevard in
Macclenny the early morning of
November 6.
Mr. Sikes, of Glen St. Mary,
said he phoned ahead to say he
was coming over to retrieve a
truck and trailer from the resi-
dence of former girlfriend Faith
Pearl.
Deputy Koty Crews took dif-
fering versions of what happened
when Mr. Sikes showed up with
his son, 16, and was met at the
front door by Mr. Fuller, the
current boyfriend. They accused
each other of physical attacks, as
did witnesses.
Complaints for battery
against both alleged combatants
resulted following a confronta-
tion between Cleo Elliott, 59, and
neighbor Cathy Luke, 49, in a
trailer park off North Boulevard
in Macclenny the evening of No-
vember 3.
Ms. Elliott went to Ms. Luke's
residence after being told by her
boyfriend that Ms. Luke's son,
David Norman, 28, had been
peeking in her windows as she
undressed.
The two women argued over
the allegation, accusing the
other of battery and Mr. Nor-
man of pushing Ms. Elliott to the
ground.
Deputy Matt Riegel said a
video surveillance camera may
determine the aggressor follow-
ing a shoving match between
Robert Hicks, 39, of Glen and
Carlton Brown, 32, of Atlanta.
The incident took place at the
Walmart Distribution Center
east of Macclenny about 12:40
the morning of November 4
when Mr. Brown accused a DC
employee of damaging his semi-
trailer.
Mr. Hicks, a center employee,
was taking a damage report from


the truck driver when he claims
he was shoved into a door. Mr.
Brown told a different story, say-
ing Mr. Hicks fell back against the
door after Mr. Brown grabbed for
a driver's license.
Two witnesses, also DC em-
ployees, backed up Mr. Hicks'
version.


from behind and knocked uncon-
scious. Hospital officials said he
was treated on campus and lost
two teeth.
A 15-year-old Macclenny
boy reported to police he was at-
tacked and robbed by two white
males who lured him behind
Moody's Chevron on US 90 in
the west city the evening of No-
vember 6.
The boy told Deputy Matt Rie-
gel he may have recognized one
of the assailants as someone he
went to kindergarten with, but
did not recall his name. The sec-
ond suspect was about 5'8" and
weighed about 160 pounds wear-
ing a Florida Gator hat and shirt.
The victim said they took $4.
Interviewed at the Fraser
emergency room, the boy said
he joined the other two walking
on US 90 then followed them to
the rear of the store where they
claimed they left their bicycles.
He said he lost consciousness
when struck on the back of the
head.
Albert Jones, 40, of Macclen-
ny was arrested for domestic vio-
lence following an argument with
ex-girlfriend Denise Womack, 41,
of Macclenny at a residence off
Pine Oaks Circle.
The girlfriend said she was
struck in the face when she at-
tempted to make a phone call
about 5:00 that afternoon. Dep-


uty Patrick McGauley said Mr.
Jones denied the allegation dur-
ing a phone conversation, and he
later confronted the suspect in
the Walmart parking lot. By that
time, the officer learned that Mr.
Jones is wanted on a probation
violation warrant, and he was ar-
rested on that as well.
Both Mary Joyner, 22, and
her mother Mary Peacock, 43,
were named in complaints for
domestic violence following a
confrontation the evening of No-
vember 6 at a residence off Brent
Lane in south Macclenny.
The mother told Deputy Rob-
ert Simpkins her daughter be-
came belligerent when asked to
return from a nearby residence
where she had been drinking.
Both parties gave conflicting ver-
sions of events and the officer
said he was unable to determine
the primary aggressor.

Student caught with drug


A 16-year-old male student at
Baker County High School was
arrested November 2 for felony
possession of a controlled drug
he claimed he purchased at a
party the previous weekend.
Campus deputy Thomas Dyal
said another student reported
the suspect, who is from the Glen
St. Mary area, was attempting to
sell a single tablet of Xanax dur-
ing first period class.
The student produced the pill,
and said he bought it for $3 and
attempted to get his money back
because he didn't want to take it.
In other recent arrests:
Eugene Burkley, 24, of St.
Augustine was jailed for drunk
driving with property damage
early on November 19 after he
drove his 2003 Nissan 350Z into
a tree on North 4th St. in Mac-
clenny.
Deputy Matt Riegel said Mr.
Burkley had a strong odor of al-
cohol and several times admitted
he was "inebriated." He failed
to pass several field sobriety
tests and his blood alcohol level
at county jail measured at three
times what the state considers
legally drunk.
Hilda Givens, 51, was arrest-
ed for disturbing the peace after

The officer was called to the
residence on Hollow Ridge Rd.

Cpl. Anderson said the suspect
was intoxicated, and he threat-
ened her with a taser gun when
she resisted being taken to jail
following the threats.
Thomas Weber, 25, of Mac-
clenny was arrested early on No-
vember 2 for driving on a license
with six prior suspensions for
failure to pay fines.
Deputy Brad Dougherty said
he was alerted by Mr. Weber's
girlfriend Felicia Hewett that the
suspect had taken her 1995 Ford
without permission from their
residence off South 6th St. Sgt.
Dougherty spotted the vehicle
on US 90 just east of Macclenny
shortly after 1:oo am.

of persons on outstanding war-
rants, including Deyon Bennett,
35, of Jacksonville, wanted by
Pinellas County for grand theft in

Deputy Kevin Jenkins stopped
Mr. Bennett driving westbound
on Interstate to doing 85 mph in
a 70 zone west of Glen St. Mary.
The arrest took place about 8:45

Man identified




as sunglass thief


The state attorney's office will
decided whether criminal charg-
es are warranted against a Mac-
clenny man for theft of three pair
of sunglasses from a convenience
store.
Benjamin Cline, 21, matched
a partial description given by a
clerk at the Kangaroo store on
U.S. 90 as the person who en-
tered about 1:30 the afternoon of
November 7 and stole the glasses
valued at $57.
Shortly after, the clerk told
Deputy Robert Simpkins she was
telephoned by a counterpart at
the Kangaroo on South 6th, who
told her a white male entered
that store seeking a refund for
the sunglasses. She told him to
return them at the U.S. 90 loca-
tion.
Later that afternoon, the same
suspect returned to the original
store but did not ask for a refund.
Another employee took down the
license number of a 2003 Dodge
pickup he was driving, and it was
traced back to George Parish, 22,
also of Macclenny.
The clerk said the suspect was
wearing a pair of glasses similar
to one stolen earlier.
When he came into the store
the second time, the clerk said the
suspect was wearing sunglasses
identical to the ones taken from
inventory.
The following day after the
clerk was unable to identify Mr.
Parish in a photo lineup, Deputy
Simpkins said he questioned Mr.
Parish at his residence on College
St. and was told he had sold the
Dodge to Mr. Cline but had yet to
change registration.
Mr. Cline was at the address
as well, and had a facial tattoo
that matched one described by
the clerk. He denied stealing the
glasses but had no information
on where and when he purchased
them.
According to the deputy, Mr.
Cline said "he often buys sun-
glasses from all over the place
and after realizing he no longer
wants] them, returns them."
In other theft cases, several
suspects who had been at the
residence were identified as po-
lice investigated the theft of a safe
and contents from the residence
of Guy Arnold on E. Ohio Ave. in
Macclenny.
Mr. Arnold told Deputy Koty
Crews the theft from a bedroom
closet likely took place between
November 4-8. Inside the safe
were a ring, checkbook and per-
sonal papers.
Police say they traced a li-
cense number to learn the iden-
tity of the owner of a truck that
left the Murphy Oil store on
South 5th in Macclenny the eve-
ning of November 5 without the
driver paying for gas. A clerk said




Patient



destroys



machine

A male patient was named as
the person who destroyed a ma-
chine at Northeast Florida State
Hospital the evening of Novem-
ber 4.
Employee Stan Lerman of Or-
ange Park said the 27-year-old
patient became enraged and de-
stroyed the device that monitors
vital signs and is valued at $1681.
He added that the same patient
has been responsible for trashing
hospital equipment before when
he is angry.
A complaint for felony crimi-
nal mischief was filed with the
state attorney's office.
In another vandalism case,
someone ransacked the outdoor
pavilion area behind Mac's Li-
quors in downtown Macclenny
after the 2:00 am closing time on
November 7.
An employee reported wiring
pulled from an exterior wall and
damage to a sink, furniture and
an outdoor grill. There was no
damage estimate.


An employee of the nearby BP
station reported hearing com-
motion from the area as he pre-
pared to close the store around
3:30 am, an said he saw a white
male of stocky build in the area
wearing a camouflage jacket and
jeans.

Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), the petition
must be filed (received) either by delivery at the

CITY COMMISSION



Sidewalk signs OK for now


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Macclenny City Commis-
sion during it monthly meeting
on November to granted down-
town business owners a tempo-
rary reprieve from the city's sign
ordinance to help boost business
during the holiday shopping sea-
son.
The move came at the request
of about a dozen such owners
who gathered the week prior to
discuss acceptable standards for
the signs like limiting them to
six square feet and ensuring they
don't obstruct foot traffic along
the sidewalks.
"We need the signage to help
us," said downtown boutique
owner Karen Rhoden. "A lot of us
are having a real tough time."
The merchants also asked
that city commissioners consider
amending its sign ordinance to
allow sidewalk signs year round
in the future. That process could
take months to complete, how-
ever; Chamber of Commerce
Director Darryl Register said in
a memo to the board that time
could mean the difference be-
tween a profit or loss on the year.
While commissioners didn't
object to the signs downtown,
and Mayor Gary Dopson agreed
to them as far west at the Main
Street Market on US 90, he


wasn't as agree-
able to permitting
them city-wide.
"I person-
ally think, to start
with at least, we
should limit it to
downtown with
few exceptions to
be evaluated by
the city manager
on a case-by-case
basis," said Mr.
Dopson.
The merchants
initially asked
that the excep-
tion be applicable
city-wide in the
interest of fair-
ness. Restricting
it downtown could
lead other busi-
ness owners, like
those neighboring
Jack Baker Jr.'s
insurance office in The sidew
the 500 block of S.
6th St., to insist on it as well.
"Like the woman at Goodie
Two Shoes," said Mr. Baker. "If
she's having a sale, I'm sure she'll
want to put something out."
Commissioners also asked
that common sense be used with
placement of signs to ensure they
don't block lines of sight for driv-
ers or pose a safety risk.
Amuse Cafe owner Tabitha


Mathews used the opportunity
to recommend the city do some-
thing about sidewalk holes near
her storefront where visitors of
the senior center downtown of-
ten pass.
"We've helped two people that
have fallen into those holes," she
said.
The sign ordinance exception
will be in effect until June 1 and
the signs and their locations will


Burglaries from vehicles


Two men were jailed during
the early morning hours of No-
vember 8 and charged with bur-
glary to several vehicles parked
outside the Country Club Lounge
on South 6th in Macclenny.
Deputy Chris Walker was
parked across the road from the
bar near the 2:oo am closing time
when he responded to two sub-
jects fighting in the parking lot.
One of them, Quienten Canaday
of Jacksonville, told the officer
that three firearms had been sto-
len from a vehicle parked in the
rear lot. He named Jeffrey Perry-
man, 28, of Glen St. Mary as the
person who took them.
The officer said he arrested
Mr. Perryman after questioning
him standing next to a vehicle
and noting a shotgun laying on
the ground. Based on statements
by others, he also arrested Wil-
liam Homitz, 19, of Glen St. Mary
as an accomplice.
The vehicles entered that
morning included a 1993 Jeep
belonging to Alisha Edwards and
a 1984 Chevrolet pickup belong-
ing to Carl Noles, both of Mac-
clenny.
Other than the three weapons,
including two rifles recovered
later by Mr. Noles in bushes
adjacent to the parking lot, the
stolen property included a cell
phone, shirts and purse belong-
ing to Carolyn Thigpen of Glen St.
Mary. Heather Burnsed of Sand-
erson was also listed in Deputy
Walker's report as a victim, but it
was not clear which of the items
belonged to her.
Total value of the property
was placed at $2051, the bulk of
it firearms.
Mr. Perryman and Mr. Homitz
were booked for armed burglary,
a first-degree felony, burglary of
a vehicle and grant theft.
In other crimes involving ve-
hicles:
Alan Spring said a pickup,
car and motorcycle belonging to
him were vandalized overnight
on November 1. The damage in-
cluded broken windshields and
windows, dented panels and a
smashed odometer on his 2003
Ford pickup, 2000 Ford sedan
and Yamaha motorcycle.
All were parked on his prop-
erty off Dollie Lane near Glen St.
Mary, and Mr. Spring told police
he suspects neighbors may be re-
sponsible.
A 1995 Chevrolet pickup be-
longing to Lonnie Harris of Glen
was damaged while parked near
a softball field on the campus of
Baker County High School the
morning or early afternoon of
November 4. Someone scratched
an obscene message into the
hood.
Chris Raulerson of Glen re-
ported his 1991 Toyota pickup
was stolen from where he parked
it unlocked with the keys inside
the evening of November 3. It


was left near the intersection of
Crews Rd. and Moseberth Lane.
The vehicle was involved in an
accident on CR 125 about lo:oo


that evening and abandoned
when the police got to the scene.
The Toyota struck a guardrail.


Eatery burglarized


A pair of muddy boots and
three Dum Dum suckers played
a major role in the arrest of a
Macclenny man for the night
burglary of the Connie's Kitchen
restaurant on South 6th on No-
vember 2.
Jailed on multiple charges is
Johnny Lee Belford, 46, who had
incriminating evidence on his
person when arrested on an un-
related warrant about 1:oo that
morning. Deputy Larry Clark had
gone to a west Macclenny neigh-
borhood near Edgar and Lewis
Sts. on a suspicious person call,
and learned that Mr. Belford was
wanted on a warrant.
The officer noted the suspect
had about $150 cash at the time
of his arrest, money Mr. Belford
insisted he obtained by selling
marijuana the previous night.
Deputy Clark also inventoried
as personal property the suckers
and a pocket knife with a bent
blade.
Later that morning after 4:00,
the same deputy recalled that
Mr. Belford had on muddy boots
when booked at county jail, boots
that were matched to footprints
inside the restaurant after police


probed the burglary there.
A cash register had been
forced open and $150 cash in
bills taken, along with another
$51 in bills that were signed by
well wishers and customers, and
had been taped to the wall.
Sheriffs investigator David
Morgan noted the suckers were
identical in brand from those in-
side a plastic bucket by the cash
register.
The "message" money, some
of it with adhesive tape still at-
tached, was also identified by
restaurant owner Louie Salameh
via the written words on the bills.
Investigator Morgan arrested Mr.
Belford after the suspect was un-
able to explain during question-
ing why the items were found in
his possession.
Entry into the rear of the
building was through an opening
made by removal of an air condi-
tioner. The burglary was discov-
ered when an employee reported
for work about 4:00 am.
Mr. Belford is charged with
criminal mischief for damag-
ing property, burglary and petty
theft. The burglary count is a
third-degree felony.


need approval from city staff be-
fore going up.
"As long as it doesn't create a
nuisance it's acceptable," said as-
sistant city manager Roger Yar-
brough.
In other business this week,
the commission agreed to pay a
$5040 share of Tallahassee lob-
byist Chris Doolin's $25,200
contract to represent the Baker
County Legislative Coalition, a
group made up of the county, the
city, the Town of Glen and the
school district.
"He's served us well in the
past year on many levels," said
Commissioner Phil Rhoden, cit-
ing how instrumental Mr. Doo-
lin was during the fight to keep
Northeast Florida State Hospital
in public hands earlier this year.
"He's proven to be adept at
knowing what's going on so that
we're an active participant rather
than just being on the receiving
end of what comes down from
Tallahassee," said Mr. Rhoden.
Commissioner Vernon Ben-
nett recalled his time in Talla-
hassee with the lobbyist, saying
he was "Johnny on the spot" at
all times.
"That was probably the best
$3,000 we spent last year in the
whole budget," he said in refer-
ence to the city's previous contri-
bution. "He had a lot to do with
keeping that hospital out there

Mr. Doolin's previous contract
was for six months at $15,000.
The county has been funding
the new contract since July.
The legislative coalition meets
periodically to discuss issues of
mutual importance like full fund-
ing of state grant programs, man-
agement at the state hospital and
changes in growth management
rules. The next meeting is set for
December 7 at the Chamber of
Commerce.

How to Buy a Quality Used Car or

Truck Under $200 a Month Without

a Penny Out of Your Pocket


Gainesville, FL -
Now more than ever, great
quality and great value are what's
on everyone's mind. How can
you get the most car for the least
money? Wade Raulerson Honda
has the answer
"We've had car after car and
truck after truck returned to us.
People simply can't make the
payments any more and just
bring the vehicle back. We've got
so many of them, our only
option is to let new customers
take over loans on the vehicles
and start making payments,"
said Jason Dillon, used car sales
manager.
Wade Raulerson Honda has
row after row of quality
pre-owned vehicles available for
this program. Their service
department, which is one of the
top rated service departments in
the state, has inspected, recondi-
tioned and certified vehicles.
"We just need to move these
vehicles for the banks. Right
now, you can get a used car or
truck, many less than a year or
two old, for less than two
hundred dollars a month
without a penny out of your
pocket. This is a program I
haven't seen in twenty years in
the business," added Dillon.
I ate model vehicles, which
have already had thousands of
dollars in payments made against
them are being brought back at a
staggering rate.
Neither the bank nor dealer-
ship wants these vehicles since
they've already been retailed. The
banks and the dealership arc


looking for good customers -
with good credit or bad who
are willing to take payments on
these vehicles.
"There's not a vehicle on our
lot that can't be bought for under
two hundred dollars per month -


"Right now, you
can get a used car

and these aren't clunkers. Lxok
at this example a 2004 Toyota
Tacoma, Stk# FH8170A, with
$0 down is just $197 per month
for 72 months at 5.9% APR
with approved credit plus tax,
tag and title. And I've got fifty
other cars and trucks that arc
similar values," added Dillon.
Dealerships and banks aren't
in the business of taking back
vehicles when customers can't

make payments. They'd rather
get them off their books immedi-
ately and will do whatever is nec-
essary to do so.
Wade Raulerson Honda has
taken all of the vehicles and put
them in a special section on their
lot. Any interested consumers
who'd like to view the inventory
should call the dealership to
make an appointment.
"All we're asking is to make
an appointment. We've got these
vehicles sectioned off and they're
ready to be driven, inspected and
taken home today. We're clearly
posting prices and payments. If
you see a vehicle you like, but
aren't happy about the take over
price simply make an offer I'm
sure you hear stories every day of
banks and businesses taking pen-
nies on the dollar for
surplus products. I don't see why
any offer will be refused,"
finished Dillon.
Wade Raulerson Honda has
been Gainesville's top dealership
for many years. Respected by
Honda and the community, the
dealership has built its business
on fantastic products, great
customer service and prices that
you can feel good about.
Interested consumers should
call the dealership at 1-877-639-
8148. This event is going on
through 8:00pm Monday.
"After that, we've got to ship
inventory off this lot. We can't let
it sit here forever for the banks or
lenders. Make an offer now, or
you may miss an opportunity to
get a great car under $200 per
month," added Dillon.

exhibits.

Nutrition, good health

stressed to 3rd graders
KELLEY LANNIGAN I FEATURES

Macclenny Elementary third graders recently received an in-depth
instruction of the food pyramid during their study of health and fitness.
The study unit concluded with a special exhibit on display in the school
cafeteria November 3.
"The health and fitness unit takes place during the first nine weeks
of school," said teacher Beverly Rentz. "The purpose is to give them
tools to understand food and physical activity as ways to improve and
maintain life-long health."
Much of the content in the curriculum for the health and fitness unit
comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture-sponsored Web site
MyPyramid.gov.
The color-coded food pyramid emblem helps students easily identify
the five basic groups of grains, vegetables, fruits, milk, meat and beans.
One half of the pyramid emphasizes exercise and shows a series of steps
with a person climbing to the top.
Major areas of discussion included identification of food groups
most often consumed, importance of balance in the diet, examples of
healthy versus unhealthy foods and snacks, foods to avoid and those to
eat in moderation.
"We talked about such things as how food affects performance in
school, why some fat in the diet is necessary and worked to identify
personal eating habits that might need improvement," said Ms. Rentz.
Students kept a food and physical activity journal to help them docu-
ment what they ate and how much exercise they did over a week. Using
it as a reference, they could increase or decrease foods and activities to
help them get on the road to healthier lifestyle habits.
"They would bring in their own snacks and we would discuss wheth-
er they were good examples and why," said Ms. Rentz. "For instance,
we determined that grapes and cereal are good snacks. Twinkies, how-
ever, are not and we talked about why."
Using the information they learned over the nine weeks, students
then were required to construct their own food pyramid exhibit boards
at home. Two of them, Cheyenne Adcock and Peyton Ferry, volunteered
to discuss their pyramids.
Miss Adcock re-created the pyramid from the Web site, but added
numerous illustrations of foods in the multi-colored bands.
"It took a long time to do this," she said. "About five hours."
Adjacent to her pyramid were illustrations of people playing soccer
and doing aerobic exercises. Even a dog was getting exercise on a skate
board.
Miss Ferry's pyramid was constructed with colored paper. The milk
section was highlighted with a package from Laughing Cow cheese, her
favorite.
Her display board also included examples of a healthy seafood reci-
pe her mother often prepares as well as information on other healthful
benefits such as the use of soothing music to relax.
Both girls agreed they really enjoyed learning about the food groups
and the importance of healthy eating and exercise.
"My family eats healthy and I already knew about some of these
practices," said Miss Ferry. "This was a pretty easy project for me."

Texas EquuSearch team discusses the proper way to handle crime scene evidence during a training exercise.


'Body, people searchers' train


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Texas EquuSearch, a volun-
teer organization devoted to
searching for and rescuing miss-
ing people, conducted a training
session in southwest Macclenny
November 8 for its recently
formed north Florida chapter.
The Texas EquuSearch
Mounted Search and Recovery
Team was formed in 2000 by Tim
Miller, whose teenage daughter
was abducted and murdered.
Frustrated with the search and
investigation of her disappear-
ance, he later founded his own
volunteer organization specifi-
cally to hunt for missing people.
Volunteers from the organiza-
tion participated in searches for
Caylee Anthony, Haleigh Cum-
mings and most recently Somer
Thompson.
Texas EquuSearch is expand-
ing into other states. Its resources
have evolved from the horse and
rider teams suited to the Texas
terrain to include foot searchers,
water searches (divers, boats,
sonar) air searches (planes, he-
licopters, drone), dog teams (air
scent, cadaver and tracking) and
the use of ATVs.
Prior to the training, Brian
Fallon, head of the north Florida
EquuSearch group, who is based
in St. Johns County, traveled to
Macclenny to scout for potential
training locations. City of Mac-
clenny firefighter Joey Mathis, a
member of the organization, as-
sisted in identifying the training
areas.
Twenty-one people, some
seasoned searchers, some brand
new to the experience, traveled
from various locations in central
and north Florida to participate.
After a brief overview on using
maps and compasses, they spent
the rest of the dayinvolved in four
detailed field exercises that took
place near Turkey Creek south of
the W. Lowder St. fire station.
The nature of each exer-
cise was different and involved
searching for live persons as well
as evidence of persons believed
to be deceased for years.
One of the sessions began
with a debriefing about missing
children.
"Listen up, people," shouted
one team leader. "We've got two
missing children, both girls, one
6 years old, one to. Their names
are Melissa and Katie. Both miss-
ing since last night."
At that moment, a radio com-
munication exchange took place.
"Search operations to com-
mand."
"Here."
"Ten minutes to search."


"We're ready."
Team members prepared
themselves: hats, gloves, back-
packs, water, ropes, pruners.
Each carried a multi-purpose
stick that served to keep their bal-
ance when the footing gets tricky
as well as push aside foliage and
probe the ground for evidence.
"We follow precise protocols
when performing a search and
there are reasons for that," said
Mr. Fallon. "Each search begins
with a briefing of the situation
and the appointing of team lead-
ers. It wraps up with a debriefing
during which the search is dis-
cussed and detailed paperwork
filled out."
Prior to entering the site,
searchers formed a horizontal
line-up about four feet apart.
At a signal, they began to move
forward simultaneously, negoti-
ating swamp land covered with
heavy forest, thick underbrush,
winding creeks, barbed wire and
brambles. Anchor persons at
each end of the line helped main-
tain consistency by monitoring
the line's movement.
A shout of "Hold the line!"
would go up if anyone needed to
stop for any reason. When one
stopped, the entire line stopped
until given the signal to move
forward again. In this way an en-
tire "grid" or predetermined area
could be searched as thoroughly
as possible.
The swamp mud was deep,
making movement awkward
and difficult. Sometimes people
stumbled or fell. Brambles tore
at uncovered skin. The humidity
closed in. Ticks and other insects
were a nuisance. But the search-
ers pushed forward undaunted
because two children were miss-
ing, children, the briefing had
disclosed, who were probably
suffering from dehydration.
About an hour into the exer-
cise searchers heard the radio
code 10-loo meaning something
had been found. Searchers on
one end of the line had discov-
ered the children huddled in a
thicket. Whistles were then used
to call the other team members
out of the swamp because visibil-
ityin the dense vegetation was no
more than o1 feet.
When all were assembled, the
children were placed on a rescue
stretcher and evacuated on foot.
Searchers went ahead as they
progressed, clearing a path and
holding back undergrowth.
The training session con-
cluded, as all searches do, with
a discussion on the process, any
problems encountered and what
could be done to correct them
in the future and better prepare
team members.
During discussions, searchers

learn facts such as lost children
will often linger around the base
of large trees, bodies dumped in
the forest are typically about 20
feet from where the trees begin
because that is the average dis-
tance they can be carried, bones
and clothing can even be found in
tree limbs because animals will
drag them there.
Texas EquuSearch teams often
work in conjunction with local
law enforcement. The forms and
maps on which their searches are
documented are very important
because they represent evidence,
especially when the search area
becomes a crime scene. The
forms may be utilized by law en-
forcement personnel or attorneys
at a later date.
Another exercise took place
in an open field planted with evi-
dence near a fabricated shallow
grave. Unknown to the team, one
member who was working the
tree line 20 feet into the forest
had been instructed to "disap-
pear." Part of the training was to
see how well members kept up
with each other.
"Even searchers may get into
trouble and need to be rescued,"
said Mr. Fallon. "In heavily for-
ested terrain with limited visibil-
ity, it happens. You need to know
where your team is at all times."
The line progressed slowly,
methodically. Searchers brushed
aside straw and grass with their
sticks, probing anything that
looked suspicious. Dumpsters
were searched and brush grow-
ing along a low cement wall was
probed. When the anchor person
in the woods could not be ac-
counted for, the line was stopped
until she was located.
After two thirds of the field
was searched, clumps of human
hair were discovered mixed in
with grass near a mound of dirt.
At each location of hair, a flag
with a bright-colored tag was
placed to mark the spot.
As the search proceeded into
the dirt mounds, more hair was

discovered and then a portion of
hamburger meat representing
decayed flesh was found. When
the surrounding surface dirt was
gently brushed away, the edge of
a pair of blue jeans became vis-

Mr. Fallon then explained
that the team's work was done.
EquuSearch members do not
handle evidence, they only locate
it. Once located, the evidence is
tagged and law enforcement is
called in.
People from all walks of life
and all ages become members of
Texas EquuSearch and are unit-
ed by a common desire to assist
families in locating loved ones
who have gone missing.
One team member's back-
pack displayed a memento that
summed up their collective com-
mitment. It was a button featur-
ing the smiling face of a young
girl. Under her face was printed,
"Haleigh Cummings, we love
you."

Thanks so much
Laughter is indeed good.
This is a special thank you
to everyone who attended the
presentation of my daughter
Deanna's story at the Sander-
son Christian Revival Center on
Sunday. My family was honored
to have you.
Special thanks to the ladies at
the Emily Taber Library, Mike
Griffis, Glenn Ruis, Ann Dugger,
Josie Davis, Pastor Bridges and
the BWPN. Without your help,
advice and encouragement, this
couldn't have happened.
Most of all, praises to God.
He alone brought me through
the most turbulent storm of my
life and taught me it's okay to
laugh again.
Sincerely,
Eva Redmon

47-7 route of Sante Fe Runners look to next year


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Baker High Wildcats knew if they were to
secure a spot in the playoffs they couldn't slip up
against 1-7 Alachua Santa Fe on Friday in Alachua.
The Cats had to do the job they came to do and not
look ahead to Sat-
urday's match-up
of Raines and
Ribault.
That game
loomed large for
the Cats. If Raines
won the game
they were the dis-
trict champs and
BCHS was the
runner-up. But
Ribault winning
threw the district


championship
into disarray,
resulting in the
three-way playoff
at Memorial Sta-
dium on Monday
night.
Though the
playoff situation
was in every-
one's mind on
the field and in
the Wildcat side
of the stands, one thing was ve

( ing and later snuffed the Trojan
drive with a huge hit on Union on
fourth down. Wheeler met Union
running through the line and sent
him flying backwards.
The Cats took advantage of
their first possession. Darvin
Ruise gave a great fake to Rueben
Jackson that completely fooled
the Trojans and dashed 68 yards
down the field for the score. But
the point after was blocked to
give Ribault a window of oppor-
tunity.
It didn't take them long to
capitalize. Two series later Ruise
fumbled and the Trojans got the
ball deep in Cat territory. Malik
Jackson hit Bell at the 13 and on
fourth down Bell tossed a half-
back pass for the score. Ribault
kicked the extra point for a 7-6
lead.
It was anxious moments for the
capacity crowd. However, BCHS
answered and answered fast. On
the kickoff, Harold Moore broke
containment and raced 95 yards
for the score. Ruise ran in the
conversion for a 14-7 edge.
After that, the defense took


From there Tymachee Givens took over and two
plays later scored to tie things up. Then the defense
took over. Santa Fe didn't manage much offensively
for the rest of the game as the area's top-ranked de-
fense shut them down cold. Nothing Santa Fe coach
Shay Showers tried worked as first one, then another
Cat stepped up to
make a big defen-
sive play.
Ruise took
over at quarter-
back and ran the
ball into Raider
territory. Just like
that it was 14-7
when Dakimby
Hogan broke two
tackles on a 35-

run.


It was 21-7 be-

Opponents' results

The Wildcats did what they had to do in order to qualify for a district
playoff by beating Alachua Santa Fe last weekend. Here's a look at how
their other opponents from this season fared.
V Crescent City hosted Fort Pierce Carol City and came away with its
seventh win. The Raiders defeated Carol City 28-23 in a nail biter.
V The Trinity Christian Conquerors defeated Bishop Snyder 55-0 to
remain undefeated and one of the top teams in the state.
V Bradford County wrapped up its season last week. The Tornadoes
fell 35-7 to the Fort White Indians.
V The Ribault Trojans also did what they had to do on Saturday af-
ternoon to make the district playoff. The Trojans narrowly defeated
the Raines Vikings 27-21 at the Graveyard to set up a three-way tie at
the top.
V Baldwin fell to district foes Suwannee County on Friday. The 37-6
loss left the Indians at 2-7 on the season.
V Arlington Country Day was handed its second straight loss Fri-
day, falling to Hawthorne 36-0. The Apaches travel to Baker County for
Friday's homecoming match-up with the Wildcats.


with time running out and the
ball on the 1-yard line, Ruise
punched it over for the score and
a district title.
It was jubilation for the Wild-
cat and heartbreak for the Raines
Vikings. On Saturday, Raines
had been 30 seconds away from
a district title and suddenly they
were out of the playoffs. Just like
that.

on no matter
what happens,"


Cats secure playoff birth with win


The Wildcats will face off
against the Arlington Country
Day Apaches at home this Friday
in a homecoming match-up. It's
hard to judge Arlington's 6-3 re-
cord because all their wins come
against Christian schools with
the exception of a 72-3 pounding
of Oak Hall, a Gainesville private
school.
When the Apaches square off
against public schools the out-
come has not been as good, with
losses to Yulee, Lafayette County
and this past week's 36-0 loss at
Hawthorne.
The Apaches have some tal-
ented players, however, and
Coach Bobby Johns won't want
to look past the team as they
prepare for the first round of the
state playoffs.
The Cats shut out the Apaches
in the third game of the season

last year and hope for the same
sort of result this time around.
The Apaches have improved
substantially on last year's 3-8
season and Coach James Sims
has to be happy with his team's
progress. One of the keys to this
season's success has been experi-
ence.
The Apaches return to players
on offense and eight on defense,
and that kind of experience has
shown in the results. In each of
their wins they have beaten op-
ponents by an average of more
than 50 points.
Arlington has three games
when it scored more than 60
points, so they are more than
capable of generating some of-
fense.
The Apaches are led by senior
running back Dietrick Payne,

Cal's Best had 'scary' landing


FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD
I saw a scary thing on Satur-
day that reminded me again of
how dangerous college sports
can be. I was watching the Cali-
fornia/Oregon State game. Cal
was driving for a touchdown and
Javid Best, one of the country's
top running backs and a genuine
Heisman hopeful, took the ball
around the left and catapulted
into the end zone.
As Best dove for the score, he
was hit by two Beaver players and
sent a good seven feet into the air.
He landed in the end zone on his
upper back and his head bounced
off the turf. At that point every-
one, Cal and Oregon State play-
ers alike, started screaming and
gesturing for help.
Best was out cold it was a
Tim Tebow moment. The sta-
dium went quiet and as medical
personnel went to work on the
Cal standout, both teams took a
knee and prayed for his recov-
ery.
Luckily, like Tebow, Best
emerged from the incident with
a concussion and not paralysis.
From the way he landed on the
curve of the upper back and neck
it was cause for great concern.
Football's a rough sport and
I am amazed at how few major
injuries occur. I guess it's a testa-
ment to the equipment modern
football players wear.
Later, I watched highlights
from a rugby match. Rugby is a
game that is just as brutal and
hard hitting as football but the
players wear no padding what-
soever. There are no flak jackets,
thigh pads or helmets. I thought
of Best and Tebow and was
amazed that they aren't carting
rugby players off the field right
and left.
For the briefest of moments I
thought my Seminoles just might

pull it out on Saturday against
the Clemson Tigers. They were
ahead and looking dominant,
but then CJ Spiller of Lake Butler
worked his magic.
Injured and barely at 75% of
full speed, Spiller gave the Noles
fits. He ran as fast and far as his
injuries would let him and then
darted out of bounds. Spiller had


been recruited by Florida but
went to Clemson when he saw
the handwriting on the wall that
the Gators would be relying on
the pass.
It's scary to think about Spill-
er, the ACC all-time leader in
total yardage, in orange and blue
instead of orange and purple.
