Among the crimes he plead-
ed to this week: two counts of
grand theft for stealing truck
tires and an air jack from the
Econolodge parking lot in Mac-
clenny in August, 2008; one
count of interfering with custo-
dy of his son and three counts of
aggravated assault with intent
to commit a felony.
The latter three charges were
reduced from lewd and lascivi-
ous acts on a 14-year-old female
with whom Mr. Rhoden alleg-
edly had a sexual relationship
from March, 2008 through the
ensuing year.
Judge Phyllis Rosier im-
posed probation conditions on
Mr. Rhoden that include no un-
supervised contact with females
under 18 and undergoing treat-
ment for sex offenders.
Future contact with his son
must be arranged through the
Department of Children and
Families.
Several other defendants
were ordered to one-year terms
in county jail, less time served.
They include:
Jeffrey Perryman will get
135 days credit after pleading
to grand theft, petty theft and
criminal mischief. The state
dropped companion charges of
burglary while armed and bur-
glary of a structure as part of
the plea agreement.
Judge Rosier withheld adju-
dication of guilt and ordered a
three-year probation with drug
offender conditions following
release.
Charles Wisneski of Jack-

four years after release from his

Inspirational youth is battling cancer, again


KELLEY LANNIGAN

features@bakercountypress.com


Four years ago, The Press brought read-
ers a story about 6-year-old Ethan Arnold
and his struggle with ependymoma, a rare
form of cancer that affects the cells of the
brain and spinal chord.
The young Glen St. Mary boy under-
went brain surgery on three occasions to
remove the recurring tumors. The invasive
surgeries and the feeding tube he used dur-
ing recovery adversely affected his ability
to walk and breathe normally. There were
long stretches of occupational and speech
therapy.
Still, Ethan has prevailed, attending
school and completing his lessons. He
makes friends easily and remains enthusi-
astic about his school work. He also looks


forward with great antici-
pation to the annual spring
kite day event at Westside
Elementary where he is a
student.
Now Ethan, at 10 years
old, is again facing serious
challenges from this un-
relenting illness. Another
tumor has appeared and,
according to doctors, his
body will not withstand
the level of surgery it
would take to remove it.
He can no longer toler-
ate radiation, previously
used as a preventative
measure.
His mother, Brooke
Arnold, has opted for che-

motherapy in an attempt
to control the tumor's
growth. The treatments
started last week.
It's going to be tough.
Ethan's chemo will be a
daily event over the next
year with weekly doses of
powerful antibiotics as a
shield to protect his deli-
cate immune system.
For Katie Rhoden
and Karen Burnsed,
both teaching assistants
at Westside, the boy's
struggle effects them on
a deeply personal level.
Both have worked with
Ethan and both find him
exceptional.


Ms. Burnsed becomes emotional when
she speaks of Ethan, quite often wiping
a tear from her eye. She helps him with
reading instruction and says his pleasant,
happy demeanor simply amazes her.
"Ethan is always smiling, smiling, smil-
ing, no matter what," she said. "It's truly
remarkable, considering all he has been
through. I believe God put him here for
people to see that smile."
"He touches the life of everyone he
comes into contact with," said Ms. Rho-
den, who formerly worked with Ethan in
physical education class.
He's special to Annette Barton, too. The
Westside receptionist has worked hard to
organize a fund raising event in Macclenny
to benefit Ethan's family. She says she has
always been impressed with the little boy.

The percentage of tenth graders
scoring a '3' or above on the FCAT
stood at 37 percent in 2009 and
2001, he said.
Student progress under the
new schedule will be monitored,
first in February and then again
at the end of the 2010-11 school
year.
"We'll have a good indication
of its impact on the students,"
Mr. Hill said of the seven-period
day.
Furthermore, a vote taken
last year among the high school's
faculty resulted in more than 70
percent favoring an end to block
scheduling. For teachers the new
schedule will mean one less class
to plan and teach.
Six classes a day and one plan-
ning period are called for under
the seven-period schedule while
the block schedule features seven
classes and a planning period.
Some students have expressed
concerns that more classes in the
day will mean more homework at
night.
"That's probably the biggest
concern students have shared,"
he said, adding though, that they
also say sitting in the same class
for 90 minutes is too long.
Uncertainty about funding re-

weighing on the school district.

Travesty in health


bill was the elitism


and the arrogance


IMPRESSIONS
Jim McGauley
Tuesday of this week was in-
deed historic the first time
we've ever heard a sitting vice-
president utter the F-bomb while
the cameras were whirling.
Actually, it wasn't the first
time in recent history we've heard
about a sitting vice-president us-
ing the F-bomb. Dick Cheney did
it did back in 2004, suggesting
that Vermont Senator Patrick
Leahy (D-Partial Birth Abortion)
do something anatomically im-
possible.
Nonetheless, Mr. (Joe will be
Joe!) Biden did it during the sign-
ing ceremony at the White House
for the new health care bill.
There won't be any referrals
here to what Congress passed
as "health care reform." There's
nothing "reform" about it, as we
will learn as time passes.
Health care "takeover." That's
a bit more accurate.
Polls suggest more than half of
us liberals, conservatives and
those in between have actually
been paying attention the past
year as this now 3000 pages of
legislation wound its waythrough
the halls of Congress.
The other half? Let's not call
them the governed. Call them the
"managed" or "manipulated."
They don't care much either
way.
Regardless of what you believe
about the health care bill -disas-
ter or life-saver there's some-
thing all of us need to remember
based on what we've seen unfold
in recent months.
The political party in power,
with clear majorities in both
houses, was itself the reason
the bill took more than a year to
come to fruition.
Did it do so with the power of
persuasion? Were the merits and
urgency of health care law revi-
sions made clearer as the months
wore on thanks to honest and
forthright debate?
Not exactly.
The more Americans learned
about the blatant bribery used
to bring the undecideds in line
and the sheer volume of the leg-
islation, the less we liked it. That
includes Republicans (natural-
ly), Democrats who don't want
a health industry that looks like


Medicare and Medicaid, along
with that increasingly significant
group of non-aligned indepen-
dents.
So, it was the Democrats who
had problems with this bill. Re-
publicans weren't going to sup-
port it anyway.
Congressmen and women
read polls seemingly more
than they read the Constitution.
As the number of people opposed
to health "revision" legislation
grew, Democrat leadership and
the White House knew time was
running out.
Last weekend's vote was
pushed forward precisely be-
cause they didn't want members
returning home for the Easter
recess. Might get ugly.
The "historic" urgency of pass-
ing something the Democrats
wanted since Theodore Roosevelt
(damn those rich guys!) trumped
consideration that: a) there might
be a better route to real "reform"
and b) the people might be on to
something here.
In a representative republic,
which we are, our leaders are re-
ally deputies they are put into
office to vote for what they believe
is best based on what they believe
their constituents believe.
That's why we don't have a
"pure" democracy where the
voice of the people would have
to be heard on everything un-
manageable.
The travesty in last weekend's
vote isn't just the content of the
legislation, whatever that is be-
cause you know and I know most
of them including the Presi-
dent who I believe is a bit (shall
we say?) lazy, didn't read it.
The travesty is that the Dem-
ocrats and White House cast
their votes against the American
people. They went ahead after
months of flopping this thing in
front of us trying for a better pose
and getting nowhere.
They know better than us what
is "good" for us.
You know what that makes
them?
Elitists. Arrogant elitists.
That, my friends, is the trav-
esty. They also believe that we'll
come to see their wisdom as time
goes by. We just needed to be
shepherded in the right direc-
tion.
It's not time to get mad; it's
time to collect our resolve. Many
of us, unlike them, have faith in
the American people.

One-stop health care?



It's Bob's Medi-Mart


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
The health care bill passed this
weekend, but I'm not exactly sure
what that will mean in the long
run. I've heard a lot of people
ranting and raving on both sides
of the issue. Some claim it's so-
cialism and the ruin of our coun-
try. Others say it's the best thing
since Medicare.
I don't know which is true.
Probably neither. I am old
enough to vaguely remember
when Medicare was passed that
people screamed that it was so-
cialism and the ruin of the coun-
try.
I have not read the actual bill.
Come to think of it, I doubt more
than a handful of our esteemed
legislators on either side of the
issue have actually read the bill.
They are usually so incredibly
long that they discourage anyone
who isn't trying to cure insomnia
from reading them.
I have perused it, however;
and I think that if I am quick I
can get in on the ground floor for
a very lucrative entrepreneurial
opportunity. Let me lay it out for
you in case anyone wants to pony
up some venture capital and be-
come my partner.
Over on the west side of Jack-
sonville there is an old Walmart
that closed recently when they
put in a Supercenter and I think I
can get that space for a song. With
just the tiniest bit of renovation, I
believe we can have a fully oper-
able health care facility in just a
couple of weeks. Here's what the
discerning patient will find.
Welcome to Bob's Medi-Mart
where you can come for all your
health care needs. We are the
home of everyday low prices
and will meet or better all com-
petitor's prices.
What can you expect from
Bob's Medi-Mart? The highest
quality in sales and service after
the sale with weekly specials


on pacemakers and liposuction.
Let's start with our prescrip-
tion drugs. You can get the very
best prices on prescription drugs
at Bob's Medi-Mart. Why? We're
unlicensed, that's why. Why pay
for those high-priced board cer-
tified pharmacists when you can
get the same high quality pre-
scription drugs from our second-
year pharmacy student Reggie.
Our prescription drugs are so
cheap because they don't come
from Pfizer and other pharma-
ceutical companies who actually
make the drugs. At Bob's Medi-
Mart, ours come from the tropi-
cal shores of Belize, where, as all
cruise ship passengers know, you
can get virtually anything from
an array of pharmacies right on
the wharf.
We even offer appealing pack-
age deals. For the same price as
most major drug companies want
for one prescription, you can get
this week's two-for-one post-
Valentine's Day special on Viagra
and Lunestra. Have a romantic
evening and be guaranteed of a
good night's sleep afterwards.
Need a knee replacement? No
problem. Go to the former Tire
and Lube center and we'll work
you in without an appointment.
We have adapted all the latest
tire and lube equipment into a
state-of-the-art joint replace-
ment center.
We'll put you up on the rack,
and using only the finest Good-
year and Michelin products, have
you out of there and as good as
new in the time it takes you to say
Mr. Goodwrench.
Need a colonoscopy? No prob-
lem. Slide on over into the Elec-
tronics Department. You can
play the latest Playstation game
while we root around in there, or
watch the whole procedure on a
fabulous 55-inch Samsung lo8op
flat screen HDTV while listening
to the new Brad Paisley CD on
a Sony home theatre unit. You
can't get that at St. Vincent's.
Need some cosmetic surgery?
Head straight to the Health and
Beauty center. This week we have
a special on liposuction, featur-


ing only the best Hoover and Dirt
Devil products. We'll have you
looking slimmer and trimmer
in minutes. Then head on over
to Sporting Goods and pick up a
treadmill to keep the "new you"
slim and trim. It's another Bob's
Medi-Mart package deal for all
your health care needs.
Ladies who are expecting can
get full service from Bob's Medi-
Mart. Our fully unlicensed mid-
wives can deliver the babies, sell
you a new crib and car seat, and
even wheel you over into ladies
fashions so you can pick out some
new post-pregnancy looks.
Then it's straight to the toy
department where you can get
that new baby a Barbie or G.I.
Joe depending on what your
little bundle of joy has turned out
to be.
Having trouble paying despite
that comprehensive health care
bill? Not a problem. Put that hair
replacement procedure on lay-
away, and with our easy payment
plan, we'll have you in a thick new
head of hair by Christmas.
I like it. I think it's the wave
of the future, and if you want to
get in on the ground floor with
me, get out your checkbook now.
In no time flat, you too can be a
health care professional.
Like me.

gQ-


your task

JESSICA PREVATT
Who is responsible for our
kids? Depending on who you
ask, you will hear a variety of an-
swers. Unfortunately the one cor-
rect answer is the one you rarely
hear parents. The idea that
my children are anyone else's
responsibility offends me. My
husband and I made the choice
to have kids. Therefore, it is our
responsibility to raise them. We
make the choices affecting their
lives from what clothes they wear
to what school they attend.
I recently got into a debate
with some other parents online
regarding a new Barbie doll.
Barbie is clothed in the time-
honored 'little black dress' that
comes in a variety of styles. Some
of the dresses are a little racy but
no different than what you see on
the street every day. Actually they
probably cover more than what
you see on the street.
The debate centered around
these dolls causing little girls to
want to dress and be like Barbie.
The idea of a doll influencing a
young girl to want to dress like
an adult seemed ridiculous, to
put it nicely. Children today are
influenced far more by parents,
friends and celebrities they see
on the television. If you are con-
cerned a toy will be a negative
influence, don't buy it. Pretty
simple concept.
Parents should spend more
time policing the negative influ-
ences on the radio, television and
Internet. That is a full time job in
itself.
Parents need to step up and
make the hard decisions, from
what their children eat for break-
fast to what they wear to school
to what time they go to bed. We
can be our children's friends, but
our main job is raising them to be
good responsible adults. We may
not be the popular parents, but
our kids will be better off for it.
So many parents live by the
saying, "It takes a village to raise
a child." I, for one, do not expect
or want anyone else raising my
child. I realize some things may
be out of our hands in terms of
school, but if I was concerned
that my child wasn't getting a
quality education in a good en-
vironment there is a solution
- home-schooling.
Fortunately we have a great
school system in Baker County
so I haven't made that choice.
Children along with parents need
to learn to take responsibility for
their own actions. Parents aren't
perfect and can make mistakes.
When you make a mistake with
your kids, use it as a learning
tool. Show your kids that you can
make mistakes and learn from
them just like they do.
Let your children stay children
as long as possible. They grow up
too fast without our encourage-
ment to look and act older than
they are. Dress your six-year-old
like she's six, not sixteen. Let the
boys run and play sports without
pushing for perfection. They are
kids and will be under enough
stress when they become teenag-
ers and adults.

program director at the new county jail, he
didn't realize one of his responsibilities would
be the library.
After the Baker County Sheriffs Complex
opened last year, the administration was anx-
ious to establish a library of circulating read-
ing material on a wide variety of subjects for
the inmates. The task fell to Mr. Kitching.
"I had not done this particular type of thing
before so I had to formulate a plan and figure
out how to put it in action," he said.
Today he is the library supervisor and over-
sees a collection of more than looo1000 books and
magazines.
When The Press visited the sheriffs com-
plex last week to see the library, Mr. Kitching
was at his computer, entering data to help
track books checked out that day to inmates.
Several boxes of donated books sat on the
floor and as well as a clear plastic bag filled
with issues of Smithsonian, National Geo-
graphic and Travel magazines.
Later that day, he would begin sorting and
tagging the material for circulation.
What do men and women who are incar-
cerated like to read? The same types of things
that everyone else does.
Novels by Nora Roberts and John Grisham
are popular, as are the works of many other
contemporary authors.
As would be expected, male inmates like
magazines such as Field & Stream, Sports Il-
lustrated, Popular Mechanics and anything
on travel, camping or NASCAR.
Mr. Kitching has been surprised by some of
the inmates' interests, however.


"Both women and men like to read ro-
mance novels," he said. "And they prefer the
ones that are a little spicy."
Also, quite a number of men seem to enjoy
the magazines on cooking.
The library provides religious materials
and is working toward accommodating the
different faiths of the inmates.
There are Bibles as well as copies of the
Koran. Other resources like Watch Tower and
the Upper Room are available as well.
Mr. Kitching is hoping for the donation of
a Bible or other materials in the French lan-
guage because the jail has inmates who speak
Creole, a French-based dialect.
"I'm confident someone out there will find
and donate a French Bible," he said.
The library is also working toward increas-
ing other materials it is short on, like Spanish
books and magazines.
There is a definite shortage of books by
authors like Louis L'Amour, the well-known
writer in the Western genre.
"The men really love Westerns. It would be
great if we could get more donations in that
category," he said.
Once a week, Mr. Kitching loads his book
cart and visits the public areas of thejail's two
dormitories.
Books and magazines from the previ-
ous week are checked back in while inmates
browse the cart for more selections. Each book
is marked with a large identification number
in black marker to help track its circulation.
Inmates kept in lock down have access to
books, too. They are escorted to the dormitory
public area from their cells, one at a time, by a
guard who remains with them while they re-
turn or check out additional books or maga-
zines.
At the moment, library storage space is a

bit of a problem, since a library space wasn't
originally included in the jail building plan.
Mr. Kitching has devoted some of his office
space to storage of books and trying to acquire
additional shelving.
Still, even with the storage issue, continued
donations of reading material are important.
It is critical to change out resources on a regu-
lar basis.
"There are a lot of inmates who are avid
readers. They can go through books and mag-
azines quickly. Then there is wear and tear.
Reading material gets damaged and needs to
be replaced, things like that," he said.
To speak with Sam Kitching regarding a
donation to the library, please call the Baker
County Sheriffs Complex at 259-2231.

"He is awesome," she said.
"There is simply no one like
Ethan. It's my sincere desire that
the community come out and
show their support of this re-
markable young man."
The Fund-raiser for Ethan
Arnold will be at the Macclenny
Moose Lodge on Lowder Street
Saturday, March 27.
It will be a day of entertain-
ment with lots of music and
food.
Lunch will be served 11:oo am
until 4:30 pm and will feature
heart-healthy grilled chicken or
chicken and rice with beans and
potato salad. Dessert will be a se-
lection of cakes, for sale whole or
by the slice.
There will be silent auctions
on a variety of items. Theme bas-
kets, such as college team and
beauty baskets, will be auctioned
and raffled off.
From 11:oo am until 4:30 pm,
Gentleman Josie and a variety
of guest singers will be crooning
oldies-but-goodies tunes. The fa-
ther and daughter duo, Steve and
Stephanie Branch, will entertain
with country music and local El-
vis impersonator "Vernon" will
make an appearance as well.
Bluegrass music starts at 4:30
pm. Karaoke host Jimmy Barton
starts his brand of musical fun at
8:30 pm to wrap up the rest of


the evening.
According to friends, Ethan's
mom hopes her son will be well
enough after this first week of
chemo to spend some time at the
fund raiser. If not, she wants ev-
eryone to know he will definitely
be there in spirit, as will she.
Ms. Rhoden and Ms. Burnsed
have high hopes for Ethan to at-
tend the fund-raiser as well and
his speedy return to Westside.
"Ethan just wants to get back
to school and be with his friends,"
says Ms. Rhoden. "It's all he talks
about. He got a new camera re-
cently and he wants photos with
all his friends to put up on his
wall at home."
Ethan especially hopes to be at
kite day on March 26.
Teacher Jeana Duval, who
heads up the annual spring event,
knows how much he loves it and
takes his participation to heart.
According to Ms. Burnsed and
Ms. Rhoden, when Ethan gets
too tired to walk, Ms. Duval car-
ries him around the field in her
arms.
For information about the
Ethan Arnold Fund-raiser or to
make a donation to the silent
auction, contact Annette Barton
at 904-626-3173.
Cakes and other donated
items can also be dropped off to
Ms. Barton at the Moose Lodge
before the event starts from 9:oo
am until 10:3o am.


Advanced placement: for academic elite


(From page 1
"You get a lot out of it and it's
not a boring class," said another
art history student, Josh Lowery,
18, of Macclenny, who hopes to
study architecture.
Brendon Butler, 18, of Taylor
said his previous art classes have
been hands on drawing, paint-
ing and so forth while the AP
course involves more study of
history and the various styles and
media used through the ages.
But it's still an art class.
While learning about Roman
statues, students carved and
chiselled themselves, even on
Ms. Armoreda's wooden office
door. "It turned out to be a very
hard project," said Mr. Butler,
who aspires to work with video
game art design.
Angela Hunter is in her sec-
ond year teaching chemistry,
but her first teaching the AP ver-
sion. All her AP students took her
chemistry honors class last year,
something she and the students
recommend for anyone hoping to
tackle AP chemistry.
"It's a lot more content in a lot
less time," Ms. Hunter said. "But
at the same time, I can give them
more freedom to use and develop
critical thinking skills."
Rather than volunteering an-
swers to her student's questions,
she tries to help them find the
answer themselves.
"It bothers them sometimes,"
she said.
Ms. Hunter recalled another

time though, when Hampton
Raulerson, 16, of St. George came
to an answer in mid-question.
"He just stopped and said,
'Never mind Ms. Hunter.' For me,
that was awesome," she said.
Student athlete Billy Folsom
enjoys the challenge that AP
chemistry presents and how it's
preparing him for the academic
rigor of college.
"You have to keep using what
you've learned before and keep
building on it," said the 17-year-
old from Sanderson. He intends
to be the first in his family to at-
tend college.
For Jordan Hand, also a stu-
dent athlete, AP chemistry was a
bit intimidating. "I heard it was
really, really hard," she said.
One perk has been the small
size of the class only nine stu-
dents which makes it easier to
learn.
"They're doing really good,"
Ms. Hunter said. "It was a strug-
gle in the beginning, but they're
getting used to it."
Something else that comes
with AP courses is AP home-
work.
Alexandra Rohde, 17, of Sand-
erson said she spends one to two
hours an evening on AP history
assignments alone.

Her sister, Mackenzie Rohde,
15, said the course has given her
plenty of essay writing practice,
which will pay off on the FCAT
writing test.
"We delve more deeper into
subjects than in other classes,"
added Chelsea Moore, 16. "We
spend a lot of time on the de-
tails."
Sixteen-year-old Malone Had-
ley, yet another student athlete in
the program, explained AP his-
tory like this: "In regular classes,
there's some content below your
level, and some above your level,
because not everybody is where
you are. But in AP, most of the
content is above your level."
Next year, the AP program
could be expanded with more
courses, said vice principal Jen-
nifer Payne.


New classes under consid-
eration are AP psychology and
calculus.
Faculty will also have more
time next year to prepare stu-
dents and parents for the rigors
of the AP curriculum. Ms. Payne
said it's likely some of the AP
classes will require prerequisites,
particularly chemistry and biol-
ogy.
"We put ninth graders in
the biology class [this year],
but a prep class would prob-
ably be needed before taking that
course," she said. "With the his-
tory, it's probably not that criti-
cal. But that will be a lot of what
we talk about."
AP teachers will take state-
mandated training courses this
summer to further develop next
year's program as well.

The Baker County Commission
decided the evening of March 15
to solicit full payment of a $2855
code enforcement lien from the
California mortgage companythat
foreclosed on an Allen Acres Road
property east of Macclenny.
The move runs counter to the
code enforcement board's [CEB]
3-2 vote earlier this month recom-
mending reduction of the fine by
$855 on the condition that HSBC
Mortgage Services paid the bill
within 30 days.
Michael J. Orsech's former
property at 2088 Glory Road was
found in violation for having ex-
cessive refuse in July, 2009. And
despite fines to compel compli-
ance, the property remained in
violation through September,
when the county filed the lien.
A majority of the CEB rea-
soned that reducing the fine by
roughly 30 percent could en-
courage quick payment by the
mortgage company, which took
possession of the property in late
February.
However, county commission-
ers saw no harm in sending a bill
for the entire lien and tabling the
matter until next month.
Commissioner Mark Hartley
also feared the reduction could
set a precedent and prompt


other lenders to make similar
requests.
"It's going to come to us every
time now," he said. "Usually, we
consider it for hardships or some
other reasoning..."
Building department director
Bob Hathcox, who also serves
as acting code enforcement of-
ficer, said the realtor represent-
ing HSBC Mortgage told him the
bank agreed to pay the reduced
fine within 30 days.
In other actions that evening:
The commission approved a
contract with John Motherwell
for fire marshal services begin-
ning in April. Mr. Motherwell
will receive $20 an hour and be
on-call for fire safety inspections,
plan reviews and other duties
mandated under state law.
Mr. Motherwell has been per-
forming the job pro-bono since
retiring in December 2008 from
employment with the county, fire
chief Richard Dolan said.
A settlement agreement with
DuPont on the company's future
mining plans in the southeastern

proved.

county's stipulation that DuPont
mine near the interstate next, but

ing there in the third quarter of

Neighbor arrested in stabbing

Victim appeared, left hospital several times


Deputies arrested a Macclenny man for ag-
gravated battery the afternoon of March 20
after he allegedly stabbed a neighbor in the
arm with a kitchen knife.
Raymond Brown, 29, was taken into cus-
tody when he returned to his residence off
MLK Dr. after initially being released because
the victim could not be found, said Deputy
Rodney Driggers. The victim, Carmus Shaw,
also 29, went to Fraser Hospital for treatment
of the wound to his left bicep but left several
times.
Police retrieved the kitchen knife used
in the attack. Mr. Brown said he defended
himself when Mr. Shaw appeared at his resi-
dence.
In other incidents the past week, a North-
east Florida State Hospital patient who was
declared competent by a judge was arrested
on March 18 for battery of four persons the
previous day two of them hospital employ-
ees and two of them fellow patients.
Deputy Chris Walker said the patient, Dan-
iel Burke, 44, from the Orlando area, was also


charged with felony criminal mischief for de-
stroying a trophy case by tossing a table into it.
That occurred while he was being questioned
in the admissions building about the earlier
incident.
Mr. Burke is charged with attacking em-
ployees Karen Emerick and Michael Walls, a
security officer. Just prior to that, he allegedly
accosted a male patient, 54, and a 24-year-old
female after advising the female to stay away
from the male, with whom she has a "relation-
ship."
Michael Crews, security chief at NEFSH,
told Deputy Walker that Mr. Burke also dam-
aged a ceiling and light fixture in Ward 31 East
when he threw a chair into them.
In another NEFSH case, a criminal com-
plaint for battery was filed against a 3o-year-
old male patient for striking another male
patient, 38, on March 16 about midday.
A 16-year-old male from Macclenny was
arrested for battery on Corey McCray, 18, also
of Macclenny, the afternoon of March 19.
The incident was witnessed by Deputy


Charles Ross, who was in an unmarked patrol
car near the Northwood Apartments on Ohio
St. at the time.
Two juvenile males were named in com-
plaints after an incident in the Macclenny II
neighborhood the evening of March 15 during
which water bottles were thrown at a pedes-
trian from a passing vehicle.
Deputy Ben Anderson said the vehicle was
driven by a 17-year-old who sped off when he
saw the officer's patrol vehicle. He and three
passengers were found minutes later parked
on Tom Norman Rd.
One of the occupants, a 15-year-old from
Jacksonville, allegedly tossed the bottle that
struck Joseph Meadows, 48, in the shoulder
as he and his wife walked along Birch St.
about 8:00.
Mr. Meadows told the officer a second
bottle was thrown but missed.
The complaint against the driver is for
reckless driving. The other youth is accused
of battery.


Teen on probation is charged State not


A 16-year-old male was arrest-
ed the evening of March 21 and
charged with domestic violence
battery on Wayne Brandies, 69,
at their residence off Klein Rd.
west of Glen St. Mary.
The father of the youth told
Cpl. Ben Anderson the two be-
gan arguing and the youth, who
is on probation for unspecified
offenses, pushed Mr. Brandies
in the front yard, causing him to
strike a barbecue pit.
Mr. Brandies, who is listed as
the clinical director of the Com-
munity Behavioral Health clinic
in Macclenny, received a small
laceration on his back from the
fall.
Cpl. Anderson noted in his re-
port that the accused, his father
and the victim all reside at the
residence.
In other reports:
Joshua Roberts, 20, was
named in a criminal complaint
March 17 for an alleged attack on
Brianna Hinson, 18, of Glen St.
Mary, who is eight months preg-
nant and told police she fears her
boyfriend's increasingly violent
attacks.
Ms. Hinson told Deputy Koty
Crews that her boyfriend blocked
her exit from the Rolling Mead-


ows subdivision off CR 23B that
evening as she attempted to leave
following an argument. Mr. Rob-
erts' address is on nearby Blue-
berry Lane.
She accused the boyfriend of
biting her on the lip and attempt-
ing to strike her before she drove
off.
The victim's mother Dianna
told Deputy Crews her daughter
has returned home in the past
with visible injuries she claims
are the result of the boyfriend's
attacks. Ms. Hinson had ear-
lier complained to police about
a threatening text message from
Mr. Roberts.
A complaint for domestic
violence was filed early on March
18 against Donald Miller, 41, by
his 19-year-old daughter Kayla,
who accused him of slapping her
during an argument over use of
his vehicle.
Ms. Miller told Deputy Jeff
Dawson her father had been
drinking before the encounter
at their residence off Bailey Ann
Lane near Glen St. Mary, and
that similar incidents have oc-
curred in the past.
Deputy Allen Markley filed a
complaint against Donald Thig-
pen, 48, for accosting his wife


Wanted man found at


camp with
A Michigan man who was lo-
cated the afternoon of March 17
at the Ocean Pond campground
turned up wanted in his home
state and had a stolen 1994 Jeep
Cherokee in his possession when
confronted by a US Forest Ser-
vice officer.
Baker County officers were
summoned to the scene on the
northeast side of Ocean Pond
in the west county by Chris Ca-
son of the forest service police.
There they arrested Gary Chit-
wood, 37, of Marshall, Michigan
and learned he is wanted for the
parole violation in Coldwater,
Michigan.
The vehicle was also stolen
in Coldwater, where authorities
placed a hold on Mr. Chitwood
and plan to return him.
Deputies recently arrested
several other persons with out-
standing warrants, including
Mark Tolin, 28, of Macclenny.
Deputy Brandon Kiser said he
found the suspect asleep near the
river off Crews Rd. about 2:20 the
morning of March 21 and learned
he is wanted in Bradford County.
The officer did not specify the of-
fense.
Windi McDuffie, 30, of Mac-
clenny was stopped in the early
morning of March 18 after her
vehicle was seen swerving on US
90o west of Glen St. Mary.
Deputy Koty Crews learned
that Ms. McDuffie's license has
eight prior suspensions, and she
is wanted in Alachua County for
the same offense.
Robert Proctor, 23, of Glen

seeking

death for

Aaron Fox
Though the decision was made
months ago, it was affirmed in
open court March 15 that the
state will not seek the death
penalty for Aaron M. Fox, 26, of
Sanderson for the slash murder
of a neighbor.
The matter was brought up in
response to an inquiry by Circuit
Judge Phyllis Rosier, who sought
an update on the nearly year-old
case. Mr. Fox was arrested early
on April 2, 2009 and later that
month indicted for first degree
murder by a grand jury.
He has been in county jail
without bond ever since, charged
also with robbery of victim Ster-
ling Howell, 56, who lived near
the accused and his mother off
Howell Lane and CR 229 south
of Sanderson.
State Attorney Bill Cervone
of Gainesville said last week his
reading of the circumstances of
the crime fell short of criteria for
seeking the death penalty.
"On balance, it doesn't meet
the test," said the chief prosecu-
tor, who indicated the decision
was made inside one month after
the late April indictment. Both
he and then-assistant Patrick
McClintock presented the case to
the grand jury.
Though the stabbing murder
of Mr. Howell was brutal, Mr.
Cervone indicated it fell short of
being "especially heinous" and
Mr. Fox's prior criminal record
consisted of property crimes.
The defendant was wanted in
Jacksonville for drunk driving
when he was arrested the morn-
ing after the murder. He also is
charged with taking Mr. Howell's
2007 Ford pickup, which was
found abandoned off Steel Bridge
Rd. north of Macclenny.

Firearms, purse are


stolen from vehicles


Police are looking into the
theft of two firearms from a
pickup truck parked overnight
off Glenfield Oaks Dr. near Mac-
clenny.
Travis Boone said he found
a door on his 1994 Chevrolet
pickup ajar when he went to the
vehicle the morning of March 16.
He also found that a .357 pistol
had been taken from between
the front seats and a .30/30 rifle
from behind the front seat.
Value of the firearms was
placed at $720.
In another theft from a parked
vehicle, Angela Norton said a
purse and contents were taken
from her 1999 Nissan off Ben
Rowe Circle overnight on March
15.
Other than identification and
other personal items, the purse
contained a gold tennis bracelet.
The owner estimated the loss,
including the value of the purse,
at $290.
In other theft cases:
Charles Young, owner of
Young's Auto Sales in Glen St.
Mary, reported that $600 in
tools were taken from his garage
between March lo0-19 when he
called police.
Mr. Young named a former
employee as a suspect, telling

;0


Deputy Shawn Bishara he had
fired him after a verbal alterca-
tion on March 10.
The former worker allowed
Deputy Bishara to search his
premises north of Glen St. Mary
and the officer found none of
the property. The ex-worker
suggested others who had been
fired from the business may be
involved.
Roger Cruce, 30, of Bald-
win was arrested the evening of
March 16 for attempting to leave
the Walmart Supercenter without
paying for a bottle of fragrance
and some allergy medicine.
A store security worker ob-
served the suspect place the
items valued at just over $40 in
his pants pocket before paying
for other merchandise and head-
ing for the store exit.
Deputy Brandon Kiser noti-
fied the Department of Children
and Families because the suspect
was in the company of his 3-year-
old son at the time.

O'the Green

at the COA
The Baker County Council on Ag-
ing threw a first class St. Patrick's
Day celebration bash on March 17 I
that featured Irish music, a "Most
Green" costume contest and draw-
ings for green colored prizes. A
large rainbow ending in a pot of
gold provided a backdrop as Gen-
tleman Josie entertained with his
monthly karaoke show. Kelley
Lannigan entertained, singing
such Irish melodies as "the Water
is Wide" and "Danny Boy:' Mary
Walker won the costume contest
by dressing in green from her
head to the bright green polish on
her toes. "I even wore some green
drawers!" she bragged with pride.
The party's highlight was a sur-
prise visit by leprechaun James
"the giant" Croft (pictured), who
stopped in specifically to wish a
happy birthday to Hilda Johnson
(also pictured), who turned 95
years young on St. Patrick's Day.


Drug purchase, sale
Sheriffs investigators made four felony arrests recently after arrang-
ing controlled drug buys using confidential informants. The two cases
were unrelated; one involving crack cocaine, the other prescription
pills.
The investigators, Erik Deloach and Michael Hauge, set up the pur-
chase of $300 worth of crack during the early afternoon of March 19 in
the parking lot of the Mormon church on South 5th in Macclenny.
Arrested were Keith Campble, 39, of Jacksonville, Willie Hubbard,
59, of Baldwin and Wanda Londress, 49, of Glen St. Mary.
The officers closed in after they confirmed the purchase recorded
via a bug worn by the buyer, and Mr. Campble collected an additional
charge of battery on an officer for backing his 2002 Buick into the front
of a patrol car that had converged on the scene.
Deputy Rodney Driggers was at the wheel and was not injured. The
collision damaged the front of his police cruiser, including a bumper
guard.
According to Investigator Hauge, Mr. Campble tossed out a brown
prescription bottle containing more crack. In all, police seized 4.3
grams of the drug, along with glass stems used in smoking pipes.
Police also seized $1365 in cash from Mr. Campble. The three were
booked for possession of crack with intent to sell and sale.
The same two officers used an undercover source to sell six Hydro-
codone pills to Aaron DeHart, 32, of Macclenny the evening of March
16.
The source made arrangements to make the sale for $28 in the park-
ing lot of Altman's Grocery in Cuyler. The recorded transaction was
delayed until a third party brought the suspect more cash, and the pills
were found in a baggie on the seat of Mr. DeHart's vehicle.
He is charged with a third-degree felony purchase.

Scouts collect clothes for Haiti
Members of Baker County's Boy Scout Troop 150 loaded up a small trailer
at St. James Episcopal Church in Macclenny the afternoon of March 12 with
clothing donations bound for the Caribbean island recovering from last
month's earthquake. Margaret Christopherson, the wife of Scoutmaster Rich
Christopherson, said the donations were on their way to Mission Harvest of
America in Jacksonville. She said the church, the Council on Aging and scouts
participated, donating garments that filled more than two dozen bags. Pic-
tured are Jonathan Mobley (shorts), Stephen Willing (jeans) or John McElroy
(red hair). Scouts Kevin and Daniel Smith also participated.




New shelter coming



for Margaretta family



with damaged home


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com

A Margaretta family living
under a make-shift roof with no
power or running water will soon
have shelter and other necessities
they've been lacking since a torna-
do-like wind gust damaged their
residence and razed a neighboring
mobile home in December 2008.
County Manager Joe Cone said
his office has been flooded with
calls and e-mails from people
wanting to offer assistance, partic-
ularly since First Coast News aired
a story about the family March 15,
roughly two weeks after it first
appeared in The Baker County
Press.
A Jacksonville couple Ron
and Ellen Coggin planned to
deliver a travel trailer to the Sim-
mons family March 24. It can be
hooked up to an existing septic
system that Mr. Cone said remains
in working order.
The Coggins had used the 25-
foot Coachman trailer at their
hunting camp before replacing it
with a newer model.
"In lieu of bringing it home and
trying to sell it, somebody had a
need for it, and it has everything
they'll need to not have to cook on
a camp stove," said Mrs. Coggin,
a 23-year employee of Wachovia
Bank. 'The need is so great to help
people in our community and it
was aggravating to see that this
family was not getting any assis-
tance."
Because of the small scale of the
storm's damage and new restric-
tions placed on the State Housing
Initiative Partnership, or SHIP,
program, the family didn't qualify
for government assistance.
But as word spread, everyday
people both inside and outside
Baker County began donating
food, clothes, blankets, kerosene
and other supplies.
Architect Jeff Thomas of Life-
style Designs in Jacksonville e-
mailed Mr. Cone after seeing the
First Coast News coverage, offer-
ing to draw up construction plans
for a new house free of charge.
"What a shame that someone
could not have helped this family
through a very rough winter cold
spell and probably the hottest
summer they have ever endured
living in Margaretta for the past 15
months in a damaged house," he
wrote. "I just get so angry when I


hear about housing situations like
this family has to endure when
there are so many government
agencies that cannot assist when
it's needed the most."
The county has received calls
from builders offering to donate
materials for the new home too,
and yet others have volunteered
time and labor for construction,
Mr. Cone said.
An account has also been set up
for monetary donations at First
Federal Bank of Florida in Mac-
clenny. Mr. Cone said donations
of furniture and other household
items should be withheld for the
time being because there's not a
safe place to put them.
"What we're encouraging
people to do is buy grocery store
gift cards for food only," he said.
'They can bring it by or mail it to
our office and we'll make sure it's
distributed."
With nine people, including in-
laws, in the Simmons family, the
county is also hoping to retrieve a
FEMA trailer from Alabama next
month for use until permanent
housing is finished.
P&R Electric of Macclenny has
set up a power pole on the Ruise
Lane property to run the septic
system and the health department
has agreed to donate the electricity
deposit.

Spring cleaning took on new
meaning in the Taylor Commu-
nity March 20 as residents were
joined by members of the Baker
County Fire Department, the
Florida Division of Forestry and
the US Forest Service to prepare
their homes for fire season.
It marked the second annual
Taylor Firewise Work Day. Taylor
is a nationally recognized Fire-
wise Communities/USA com-
munity. The purpose of the effort
is to help homeowners clean up
yard debris and get their homes
back to Firewise specifications.
Some of the available ser-
vices were: trimming overhang-
ing limbs; clearing brush from
around homes; and removing leaf
litter from roofs and gutters. Best
of all, these services were offered
at no cost to the homeowner.
It's been proven that homes
following Firewise recommen-
dations have a strong chance


from Keller Intermediate, Susan
Reimer, also took part.
All who complete the 1-mile
run were presented with a "fin-
ishing" medal on a bright red,
white and blue stripped ribbon.
Some of the students have run
in the race multiple times, but
first-timer Emmalee Campbell
was amazed at the amount of
people and the sheer scope of the
event.
"It was just huge," she said. "I
never dreamed anything was so
big."
When asked why the event was
exciting, her answer was matter
of fact and mature.
"It really helps your heart stay
healthy," she said.
Makenzie Webb experienced
a particular sense of accomplish-
ment when the race was over.

emergency services cannot reach
the home. Tests have shown that
homes with a fireproof roof, fol-
lowing Firewise landscaping
practices, have up to a 95 percent
chance of survival.
After a fast-paced morning,
the workers met back at the Tay-
lor Voting House for a barbecue
lunch funded by Florida's For-
estry Arson Alert Association
and expertly prepared by Billy
Johnson of the Baker County Fire
Department. Attendees brought
salads, side dishes and desserts.
"It's an excellent opportu-
nity to get together socially and
work to make each other safe at
the same time," said Firewise
Committee Chairman Nancy Oli-
ver. "Neighbors helping neigh-
bors. That's what Firewise is all
about."
Following lunch the teams
were ready to tackle the remain-
der of the day's schedule.
In all, 42 volunteer workers
mowed, cleared and trimmed at

Will Wiggins was proud that
he finished in to minutes.
"There was a funny part, too,"
he said. "I made it to the finish
line in to minutes, but I thought
I was going to pass out doing it!"
His hard work paid off with a
fun reward. The students got to
jump in a bounce house after the
race was over, something Will
says he really enjoyed.
John Turrentine, who claimed
he was probably "the best runner
in the county" was impressed by
the presence of so many police at
the run.
"They were lined up all along
the way," he said. "And they were
on their motorcycles, too."
All the students are looking
forward to running again.
"I know I'm definitely going to
do it again next year," said Noah


joggers
McCollum.
Mr. Robinson's daughter
Shanna has participated in the
race for the last four years. She
enjoys training with her mother
before the event by running a
mile three times a week leading
up to the race.
The part she likes best? Just
running fast is the answer she
gives.
"And seeing my friend Shelby
cross the finish line too," she
said.
Mother Pam values the run
for the opportunity to instill the
importance of physical exercise
in her students.
"What they come to under-
stand is that it's a free event and
it's healthy,' she said. "Also, it's a
family activity and most if all, it's
a lot of fun."

The Baker County Health
Department and the Florida De-
partment of Health reminds all
citizens of the Fish Consumption
Advisory that was first issued in
1989 by the state of Florida.
The purpose of the advisory is
to inform the public of potential
health risks of eating certain fish
species in specific Florida waters
that contain mercury and other
contaminants.
A pamphlet entitled "Your
Guide to Eating Fish Caught in
Florida" is available at the En-
vironmental Health office, 360
E. Shuey Ave., the Baker County
Tax Collectors office, 32 N. 5th St.,
and the Baker County Health De-
partment, 480 W. Lowder St.
The advisory contains eating
guidelines for fresh water and
marine fish from Florida waters,
including Ocean Pond, the St.
Mary's River, Palestine Lake, the
Suwannee River and all coastal
waters.
For instance, women of child-
bearing age and young children
should not eat largemouth bass,
bowfin, gar or white catfish
caught from the St. Mary's Riv-
er, while everyone else should
limit their consumption to once
a month.
While most fish caught in Flor-
ida can be eaten without harm,
developing fetuses and young
children are more sensitive to
the harmful effects mercury has
on the brain than other people.


To look at the advisory online,
go to www.myfloridaeh.com and
select "fish consumption advi-
sory" from the A-Z Topics.

In Loving Memory
of
Elden Ray Pennington Jr.
9/23/1946- 3/27/2009
To remember
Ayear has passed of mourning
Remembering a loved soul
From thejoy of his heart
To the humor he often showed
The love he hadfor family and
friends
The passion he hadfor his wife
The dedication he had for his values
The hopes he never saw fulfilled
Thejoys of camping he loved to do
Traveling to see new things, places
andpeople
Always with the same smile
And the wonderful saying he gave to
everyone
We shall remember him always hop-
ing the saying is true
"Everything is lovely"
Elden Ray Pennington Jr. you are
missed

Heartfelt thanks
The family of Albert Cox Sr.

to all who helped us through our

The best gift you ever gave me
never came from afancy store.

Unconditional love is the best
gift I ever received from you.
I owe you so much, too much to
repay,
so I'll give you a gift that time
can never take away.

for your wonderful gift.
Love ya always!

If I had a dime for every time
I thought ofyou,
I'd be a millionaire.
And I tellyou what I'd do.
I'dfind the world's best engineers
and have them draw up some plans
to build some stairs to Heaven
to be with my little man.
Love, Mom and your family


In Loving Memory
of
Marcille Raulerson
12/17/1931 -03/27/2008
She was my anchor to this life, the
rock that I clung to,
The place where I could turn, when
no one else would do.
Now the ravages of time, have worn
my "rock" away,
And all I have to cling to, are memo-
ries of yesterday.
But somewhere in my heart, beneath
all the pain,
Is a smile I still hear, at the sound of
her name.
She was so very precious, she was my
world, you see,
But now my heart is breaking, for
she's no longer here with me.
With tear-filled eyes we watched her
suffer and fade away,
Although we loved her deeply, we
could not make her stay.
Now even though she's left this earth,
and had to take her flight,
We know that she is here with us,
each morning, noon and night.
For death leaves a heartache that no
one can heal,
but love leaves a memory that no one
can steal.
We miss you more with each passing
day,
And love you more that words could
say.

Poultry team places third


The FFA poultry judging con-

20 at the University of Florida in
Gainesville and the BCHS team

The team of Brenan Baze,

and Clayton Lyons, plus alter-
nate Chase Brannan, placed 3rd,
missing the state title by nine
points and second place by three


points. Baze took 4th place in the
individual competition.
Thirty-four teams from
throughout Florida competed
for the state championship and
a chance to represent Florida at
the National FFA Convention in
Indianapolis. After winning the
state contest last year, this team

bor who went into debt for his
automobile is only about halfway
through his car loan. Poor guy.
And here's the kicker. Want
to know what you could do with
that other $100 a month that you
decided not to throw away on a
car loan? If you put that $100 ev-
ery month in a good mutual fund
that makes an average market re-
turn of 12 percent, and keep do-
ing that for 25 years you've got
a whopping $189,763! And it's all
yours! Yes, you can really do it.
Many folks argue that signing
for a car loan is wiser than pay-
ing cash because they don't want
to dwindle their savings down
to nothing when purchasing a
car. As a financial counselor,
I wholeheartedly agree. But if
paying cash for the car you want
would deplete your savings and
leave you broke, you shouldn't be
buying it in the first place! Not if
you want to win with your money
anyway.
Paying outright for your car
will force you to get a more real-
istic view of what type of vehicle
your income can afford. More im-
portantly, your kids will see that
you take such a large purchase
seriously. We all need to work
hard to eliminate the element
of instant gratification that runs
rampant today.
The ideas mentioned above
require sacrifice and time. And
that just might do us some good.

Joseph A. Infantino (left), Northeast Florida State Hospital's top administrator,
presented the Department of Children and Families Assistant Secretary for
Substance Abuse and Mental Health David A. Sofferin with a plaque commem-
orating the hospital's recently attained CARF accreditation. The three-year ac-
creditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.
"This accreditation is proof that all of you working at this hospital are true to
your mission of rehabilitating individuals with mental illness and restoring the
hope that empowers them to acquire or recover the skills, support and stabil-
ity they need to successfully live, work and contribute to their communities,"
said Mr. Sofferin at a ceremony held at the hospital to commemorate the event
March 19. The hospital went through a rigorous peer review process and dem-
onstrated to a team of CARF surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs
and services are of the highest quality, measurable and accountable. CARF is
an independent, non-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the
quality, value and optimal outcomes of services. "This recognition reflects the
daily efforts of our staff who work tirelessly in service to persons who suffer
from severe and persistent mental illness," Mr. Infantino said. "This achieve-
ment would not occur without our employees' passion and commitment to
serve."

Chris Waddell slides back onto base after Bishop Snyder's first baseman misses a catch.


Cats move to 7-5 on the season


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Wildcat baseball team got a pair of big
wins this week defeating a tough Arlington
Country Day team and shutting down Bishop
Snyder in a district match up.
The victories run their record to 7-5 overall
and 3-0 in the district.
The 7-2 win at home on March 16 was a
big one for the Cats, who got a strong perfor-
mance on the mound from Cameron Crews
and Corey Mercer.
Crews got in three strong innings and Mer-
cer didn't allow a hit in four innings of relief.
Mercer also had 6 strikeouts in those in-
nings.
Crhis Waddell had a triple to highlight the
offense and Thomas Sirk and Scooter Gross
both added a pair of RBIs.
The Wildcats pounded out nine hits at
home on Friday, March 19, in their district
match up with Bishop Snyder and shut out
the Cardinals 6-0 to run their winning streak


to three games.
The Wildcats also had a great night on the
bases with nine steals.
Klate Duvall had his second home run of
the year, Gross added a triple and Hunter
Hanks a double to propel the Cats to victory.
Chris Waddell pitched a four hit shutout and
Dillon Jones came on in the seventh inning to
preserve the blank slate.
Coach John Staples was particularly
pleased with the defensive end of the games.
His walks and error totals have been held very
low.
"We strive to only give three freebies a
game," said Staples, "and the last two games
we have allowed only five total. As long as our
pitchers throw strikes and we keep playing
our defense, we'll be what all the other teams
want to be."
The Cats have a big district game at home
against West Nassau at 6:00 (JV) and 7:00
pm on Thursday, March 25, and then host


Krista Smith at bat.


Softball goes 3-1 on the week


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Lady Wildcat softball
team had a strong week, winning
three games and losing one to
Columbia High.
The Cats got things started
on March 15 with a 5-2 home
win over Baldwin. The Indi-
ans jumped on top of the Cats
early for a 2-0 lead and held on
through four innings. But the
Cats got it all back in an explosive
fifth inning.
Taylor McCann led off the in-
ning with a single and the hits
kept coming. Jordan Hand,
Krista Smith, Shelby Gatto and
Taylor McCann all singled. With
two outs, Alexis Branch delivered
a two-run double to secure the
victory. Cami Craig got the win
on the mound.
The Cats handed West Nassau
a 5-1 loss in Callahan on March
16.
"It seemed like a repeat from
the day before," said Coach Jami
Rodgers. '"The Cats were down 1-
0 going into the fifth inning."
A leadoff walk by Ashley
Brownlee started the rally as
BCHS scored five runs in the in-


ning.
"Cami Craig came through
with a huge two-out hit to give us
the lead 2-1," said Rodgers. "Jor-
dan Hand kept it going with her
second hit of the day followed by
Shelby Gatto's RBI single. Cami
Craig pitched another great
game."
The girl's bats exploded March
18 in a home rematch with the
Baldwin Indians that ended lo0-
3.
"We hit the ball very well
Thursday," said Rodgers. "Sev-
eral players tallied multi-hit
games."
Jordan Hand and Cami Craig
had two doubles. Freshman Alex-
is Branch had her best day of the
season, going 3-3 with a double
and 3 RBIs. Krista Smith also
had a big game and Shelby Gatto
pitched very well to get the win
for the Cats. Haley Crews came
in to relieve Gatto to protect the
win.
On Friday, the Cats were
handed an 8-2 home loss to Co-
lumbia high in a game Rodgers
described as "much closer than
the score would show."


Trailing 2-1 with two outs in
the top of the fourth, CHS ex-
ploded with six runs to put the
game out of reach.
"They were a good team and
sometimes you just get beat.
Our girls played really hard and
showed great character," said
Rodgers.
Krista Smith added her third
home run of the year in the sixth
inning.
The Cats will face Hilliard at
home on Thursday at 4:00 pm
and West Nassau at 5:00 pm Fri-
day, also at home.

high jump, and the relay team of
Jelenia Plummer, Chelsey Ruise,
Taytum McCullough and Parker
in the 400 meters.
The Cats finished second to

three-way meet with Fort White

the 100 meters and the boys 400-
meter relay team.
On the girls side, McCullough
won the long jump, Keiser the

ters.
The Cats have had a number
of athletes out with the flu and
Coach Charles Ruise hopes that
as they get healthy, the teams will
become more competitive.


Tennis teams post

three straight wins
BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The boys' and girls' tennis teams had an outstanding run this past
week sweeping all three of their games.
"We had a good week," said Coach Allen Murphy. "We were three-
for-three and beat West Nassau, who we lost to earlier in the season."
The 4-3 West Nassau win highlighted a great week for the boys that
also saw convincing wins over Baldwin and Union County.
The boys got things started on March 15 with a 7-0 victory on the
road at Baldwin.
Trey Baker took the number one singles match 8-4 and Nick Duke-
man won in the number two slot 8-0.
Spencer Burnett won in number three play 8-3 and Samuel Murphy
went 8-1 thereafter. Grant Burns finished up the boys singles matches
with an 8-6 victory.
The doubles team of Baker and Burnett won 8-1 and Murphy and
Dukeman 8-2 in number two doubles play.
The Cats defeated Union County 6-1 on March 16 in Lake Butler.
Baker won 8-4 and Dukeman got an identical score. Burnett was victo-
rious at 8-1 and Murphy at 8-0.
Both doubles teams won by 8-4 and 8-3 scores.
The Cats worked hard to avenge their February 18 loss to West Nas-
sau, scraping out a 4-3 victory on Thursday, March 18, at home.
Dukeman won a hard fought match 8-5 in number two singles and
Burnett fought for a 9-7 win. Murphy had an easier time at 8-3.
The doubles teams split, with Baker and Burnett getting the win for
BCHS with an 8-5 victory.
It was just as impressive a week for the girls. They defeated Baldwin
5-2, had a 6-1 win at Lake Butler and a 5-2 win over West Nassau.
Kari Crummey won her matches against Baldwin and UCHS 8-0 and
8-3 in number two singles play. Destiny de la Pena won all her matches,
going 8-0, 8-1 and 8-2. Jessica Rhoden won 8-0 and 8-3 against Bald-
win and UCHS and Logan Raulerson won all three matches 8-1, 8-3
and 8-1.
The doubles team of Crummey and de la Pena won all three matches
8-2, 8-1 and 8-1. Raulerson and Rhoden beat West Nassau 9-7.
The Cats have two very tough matches this week, travelling to Yulee
on March 23 and Bishop Kenny on March 25. The Kenny match will be
the stiffest test of the year for the BCHS tennis teams.

Bobcats in final game

Will host softball championship


The middle school's Lady
Bobcat softball team will host a
conference championship March
25 after dispatching Richardson
Middle School of Lake City 5-2
March 18.
The team of 18 sixth through
eighth graders boasts an over-
all record of 9-1, losing only to
Suwannee Middle School by a
single run.
"We were actually leading the
game the whole way till the sev-
enth inning," said head coach
Jon Mobley.
The recent win over Richard-
son solidified home field advan-
tage for the first place Lady Bob-
cats, a squad that reminds Coach
Mobley of the 13-3 conference
champion team he helped coach
in 2005.
"That group of girls are mostly
seniors [at BCHS] right now, but
some were on the team last year

had an outstanding showing at

meets Monday, March 22, at

Trace McCullough first place;
heavyweight, Ray Mangiafico
first place, Garrett Griffis third
place.
Coach Scott MacDonald said
he's confident the lifters will

that was so instrumental, like Tif-
fany Smith, Ashley Holton and
Tami Craig," Mobley said.
"We have a very good group of
eighth graders right now. They've
shown great improvement as
have the seventh and sixth grade
groups. We have high hopes for
them as well."
With starting pitcher McK-
enzie Wingard out against Rich-
ardson, resting a sore arm from
the week's earlier games, cold
hitting and errors plagued BCMS
through most of the game.
"We didn't play that well at
all," said the coach. "And all of
a sudden our girls decided they
didn't want to lose the ball game
and hit like gang busters to win
it 5-2."
The conference championship


starts at 6:30 pm Thursday at
the girls' softball complex at the
corner of N. 6th St. and North
Boulevard in Macclenny. Coach
Mobley said he expects to face
Lake City Middle School, which
lost both its games against BCMS
this season, 7-1 and 7-6.
"We commend these girls for
the effort and time they put in,
and their parents for supporting
them," said the coach. "Without
them, we wouldn't be where we
are."
