BCSO turning to


'community' plan


to battle crime rise
JOEL ADDINGTON I NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A rising number of thefts and burglaries in recent years has Sheriff
Joey Dobson calling for a return to community policing strategies.
"I think the sheriffs office in Baker County has gotten away from
community policing," he said during a press conference called the af-
ternoon of May 3 in front of television cameras from First Coast News
and News4Jax.
"We've been reactive to things that are happening instead of proac-
tive," said Sheriff Dobson. "And that we believe has caused our crime
rate to rise and these things to occur."
While the sheriff said the increase in rapes, from three in 2008 to
12 the following year, is not something law enforcement can do much
to prevent, he believes the 84 percent rise in burglaries and 36 percent
jump in thefts during the same period can be reversed through more
contact with residents.
"Those numbers are just entirely unacceptable for us," he said.
"We're a coun-
ty that's always
been on the
negative side of
crime stats. In
14 years we've
been here, we
had one year
it went up 1.6
[percent] and

of 25.9 [per-
cent]. As you

The move will consist of two initiatives dubbed "Drop it-Lock it-
Stop it" and "Stop-Talk-Listen."
The latter effort began last week and involves the core strategy of
community policing, engaging citizens on a regular basis and build-

To the V-E grads: the war seemed far off

Shortly before midnight on
May 8, 1945, on the outskirts
of Berlin, Germany, the final
German Act of Unconditional
Surrender was signed, officially
putting an end to World War II
in Europe.
Massive celebrations took
place that day, most notably
in London, Paris, Chicago, Los
Angeles and New York.
In Baker County, another
type of celebration was tak-
ing place, too. The 20 students
of the Macclenny-Glen High
School Class of 1945 were re-
ceiving their diplomas.
Standing with pride among
her fellow students that day was
17-year-old Dorothy Bradley.

older brother Harold, a naval
medic stationed in Guadalca-
nal, had made it possible for her
to graduate.
Each month Harold sent
his family $12 from his pay.
Without the additional money,
Dorothy would have been work-
ing herself to help support the
family. That precious $12 freed
her to attend school.
Among her classmates, grad-
uation anticipation and excite-
ment temporarily eclipsed the
magnitude of the war's end in
Europe.
But for Dorothy Bradley,
who later became Dorothy Da-
vis, the liberation of Europe and
finally the rest of the world put a
unique spin on her personal tri-
umph. Both events have always
loomed large in her memory.
"I got to attend and graduate
from high school, the first per-
son in my family to accomplish
that," said Ms. Davis. "And all
because of that extra $12 each
month."
Ms. Davis told of cards, pre-
printed by the War Department
that sometimes arrived in the
mail from her brother. Since
letters were censored, the pre-
printed cards with optional

what people should do if their
friends, family or coworkers
display symptoms of them.
The most common mental
health disorders are schizo-
phrenia and a related composite
condition of schizophrenia and
mood disorders called schizoaf-
fective disorder.
Schizophrenia afflicts about
o1 percent of the general popu-
lation and roughly six percent
of the patients at NEFSH.
"It's a high number," Dr.
Duhaylungsgod said, adding
that schizophrenics often have
a history of substance abuse.
"That's why some are very dif-
ficult to treat. They're treatment
resistant."
Symptoms of schizophre-
nia can manifest as early as
17-18 years old, but also later
in life. They include problems
in school, isolation, grooming
problems and talking to oneself,
which can be a sign of halluci-
nations.
However, Dr. Dopson cau-
tioned, the first course of action
when such symptoms surface is
to consult a physician, as some
schizophrenic symptoms can
mimic those of other medical
and behavioral problems.
"You have to rule out gen-
eral medical conditions and

abuse," said Dr. Duhaylungs-

Mental illness...


(From page 1
god.
And should a family doctor
or emergency room physician
determine a patient's symptoms
are indeed indicative of mental
illness, then patients should con-


sult a psychiatrist.
The NEFSH
physicians recom-
mended the same
actions for any
form of mental
illness, not just
schizophrenia.
NEFSH patients
come from a large
swath of the state
including North-
east and Central
Florida, but it's the
state hospital's af-
filiate Communi-


ty Behavioral Healthcare Services
on Lowder Street that offers
mental health assistance solely
to residents of Baker County.
Calling police is also an option
when persons become violent
or show signs of harming them-
selves or others. Those deemed
by authorities as a threat to them-
selves or others can be taken into
custody and ordered by a judge
into treatment under the Baker
Act.
People suffering from
schizoaffective disorder typically
have symptoms of schizophre-
nia, but also mood disorders like
depression or mania, which is
characterized by hyperactivity,
extreme optimism, rapid speech
and agitation or irritation.
For instance, schizoaffective
sufferers may have the hallucina-
tions and disorganized thought
processes of schizophrenia and a
lack of initiative common to de-
pression.
Family history can also serve
as a warning sign for schizo-
phrenic disorders.
"It's not hereditary," Dr.
Duhaylungsgod said, "but the
chances are higher."
Bipolar disorder, the third
most common mental illness, is
another mood disorder in which
patients display cyclical mood
swings from severe depression to
severe mania and back again.
Dementia is the forth most
prevalent mental illness.
The NEFSH doctors said that
while it's more common among
elderly people, dementia isn't
exclusive to the age group. Drug
abuse that's more common


among young people can cause
dementia too.
A typical symptom is forget-
fulness, but dementia is often
coupled with other conditions,
Dr. Dopson said.
"One day, you just don't know
how to get home," added Dr. Du-


haylungsgod. "It's
a slow progressive
illness. Reagan was
displaying symp-
toms while he was
still president."
There is also
no treatment for
dementia, which
usually necessi-
tates placement in
assisted living fa-
cilities or nursing
homes.
Alzheimer's is a


common form of dementia that
largely afflicts seniors.
'They become a walking dead
person," Dr. Duhaylungsgod said.
"They can't identify their family
or know their own name."
Alzheimer's typically appears
in the 50-60 age range and pro-
gresses fairly quickly.
The fifth most common type
of mental illness are personality
disorders, which include a host
of sub-disorders like multiple-
personality, paranoid personal-
ity and anti-social or sociopathic
personality.
Those in the latter group usu-
ally end up in jail, Dr. Dopson
said.

ioral Healthcare Services on West

"The War in the Pacific would go on until August 1945 when they
dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki," said Ms. Da-
vis. '"The end of the war did mean one immediate thing to us an end
to rationing."
Ms. Davis remembers working on the family farm in the summer of
1941 to raise and sell strawberries. She used her strawberry money to
order a pair of stockings and white shoes from a catalog to wear at her
eighth grade graduation ceremony. After that, shoes became a precious
commodity.
"Shoes were rationed during the war years along with just about ev-
erything else like butter, sugar, meat, tires and gasoline," she said. "You
had to have a coupon to buy shoes. There was a type of canvas shoes
you could get without a coupon. My sister and I wore the same size so
we shared those canvas shoes."
According to Ms. Davis, the streets of Macclenny were bustling on
Saturday evenings as the town filled with young soldiers and sailors
from Camp Blanding and Cecil Field.
"Those young men were from towns and farms all over America.
They came to 'seize the moment' as it was called because the future was
so uncertain," she said.
Romances blossomed between soldiers and local girls and some-
times there were marriages.
"Some of those unions endure to this day," she said.
With the 65th anniversary of VE-Day approaching, Ms. Davis has
been watching documentaries on WWII such as "The Liberators." She
is grateful the stories of the "Greatest Generation" are being told be-
cause so many are now advanced in years and passing away rapidly.
When she visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. re-
cently, it hit home how little she and her classmates actually knew
about the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime at that time.
It has made her even more grateful, she said, that "the reign of ter-
ror" did not come ashore to this country.

Columnist dons his

'sports cap' to reveal

what others will not
As you may know, I also moon- M
light as a sports columnist. True, SIDE OF
many of you haven't read my sports
column because you regularly get so THE M A TT
frustrated after reading my humor 1 1
column that you throw the paper ROBERT GERARD
down in disgust and turn on Oprah
instead.
So, for all of you who don't read the sports page, here's a taste of
what you are missing. Here are some of the hard-hitting stories that
I've been covering over the past few days.
In an unusual break from the ordinary NFL training routine, Oak-
land Raider owner Al Davis recently cancelled his scheduled mini-camp
and instead invited his top draft pick to his home outside of Palo Alto.
The draft picks were surprised to find that they had not been invited
to a get-to-know-you garden party like they had suspected. Instead, the
eccentric Raider owner handed first-round pick Rolando McClain a can
of Simonize and a sponge.
"You know fellas, we've been just plain awful over the last to years.
I've tried drafting quarterbacks, I've tried drafting running backs and
linemen. I've tried just about everything and we keep getting worse and
worse. So this weekend I was watching a little TV and I caught that Ka-
rate Kid movie you know, where Mr. Miagi trains that Brooklyn kid
to fight by having him wax his car. Okay, Rolando, there's my Beemer.
Wax on, wax off."
For two hours a shocked McClain waxed and re-waxed Davis' BMW
while second-round pick Lamar Houston worked on the deck. "Sand
the deck, sand the deck."
For lunch the befuddled Raiders were made to eat bowls of rice with
chopsticks one grain at a time. When one hamfisted Raider complained,
Davis insisted that, "It worked for that Ralph Maggio guy in Karate Kid
i and 2." Next week Davis plans to have McClain stand on a block with
one foot in the air in what he calls, "the secret stork move."
"Wait until we unleash that against Tom Brady. He won't know what
hit him."
In what has to be a first, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handed
down a unique punishment to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben
Roethlisberger. Goodell, known for his unusual management style,
suspended the former Super Bowl MVP for six games due to his al-
leged sexual assault on a woman in a Milledgeville, Georgia bar. The
suspension itself is not that unusual but it is the stipulation he attached
that is drawing eyebrows.
For the duration of the six-week suspension Roethlisberger is be-
ing forced to join the cast of MTVs Jersey Shore. "If Ben wants to act
like a sleezeball, we'll just let him see what sleeze is all about. A couple
of weeks with Snooki, Paulie-D and 'The Situation' should set him
straight."
Lawyers for Roethlisberger have called the punishment "excessive,"
but Goodell insists that the severity of the penalty is designed to put Big
Ben "back on the straight and narrow."
NASCAR recently fined driver Carl Edwards after he injured a 79-
year-old grandmother in a Charlotte, North Carolina Publix by slam-
ming her into the wall with his shopping cart.
Edwards, who has a history of retaliation against other drivers in
big races, claims that the septuagenarian cut him off in the canned veg-
etable aisle.
"You let one person get away with stuff like that and before you know
it they're blocking you out on the third turn at Darlington. I'm just pro-
tecting what's my own," said Edwards.
In an unusual bid of his own, NBA commissioner David Stern has
surprised basketball fans by shortening the length of pro games to just
five minutes. When questioned by ESPN's basketball analyst John
Greenberg, Stern admitted the change was a long time coming.
"After all," said the commissioner, "everyone knows that it is only
the last five minutes of the game that really counts."
The remainder of the time will be filled with instant analysis, shoot-
arounds and dunk contests. "It should make for riveting television,"
said Stern.
News of the change started a bidding war for the NBA contract which
is up for renewal this year.
"This is the most exciting news in sports in a long, long time," said
CBS exec Ronald Murray.

The 'aggrieved' attack Arizona


It gets more predictable
all the time. IMPRESSIONJ
Arizona tires of the fed- IMPRESSIONS
eral government neglecting
its constitutional duty to Jim McGauley


maintain secure borders, so
it enacts a law requiring people to prove they
are in this country legally.
And the rage begins. This country's most
viable domestic product -the chronically
aggrieved springs to life loudly protest-
ing that this is the new Alabama of the 1960s
where the underclass the citizens less free
- are being targeted. One liberal columnist
wasted little time calling the law a "draco-
nian anti-immigrant bill."
Hogwash.
What that statement blatantly and con-
veniently ignores is that the majority of
American citizens favor keeping our borders
open for legal immigration. We welcome
them and we need them.
What nearly four of five Americans reject
is the ongoing refusal by the federal govern-
ment, the governments of both major po-


litical parties, to enforce our
borders with physical barri-
ers and deportation of per-
sons who show disdain for
our laws by their very physi-


cal presence here.
Most Americans also favor reform of our
immigration laws, and polls show most of
them do not believe amnesty for those al-
ready here should be part of that reform.
What to do with the "undocumented?"
Any reform should include an avenue toward
citizenship. One of the best ideas around is
to require public service two years in the
military or working in the social services, for
instance as a prerequisite.
Another "howl" in the wake of the Arizona
law is it will result in a "Your papers, please"
mentality reminiscent of Hollywood's por-
trayal of Nazi Germany.
Again, hogwash!
The authors of that law are well schooled
in what the courts have said about profiling
and unlawful search and seizure.
The law does not allow police to seek im-


migration status documents from people
willy nilly. They can only do so via "lawful
contact" like a traffic stop.
Is it unconstitutional for the cops to ask us
for our license and proof of insurance during
traffic stops?
What the professionally aggrieved don't
tell you is that people with permission to be
in this country on work visas are already re-
quired to have documentation at all times.
The very suggestion, as Mr. Obama voiced,
that Hispanics can now be officially harassed
when they take their kids out for ice cream is
blatant nonsense, not to mention inflamma-
tory and unpresidential. But then again.
One commentator said this week that pro-
tests of the Arizona law are akin to a group of
burglars gathering to object to the fact that
you upgraded the anti-theft alarm system in
your home.
If they're not breaking the law, they have
nothing to worry about.
Arizona took action because it's in the
thick of it with an estimated 460,000 illegals
running loose. Bravo to Arizona!

Whatever
JESSICA PREVATT
I have yet to reach middle age,
but already wish for the good old
days. Of course, as a child they
didn't always seem great, but
they were happier times with less
to worry about. Stress levels ex-
tended no further than not want-
ing to eat the okra and tomatoes
on my plate. Now, as a married
mother of two boys working a
full time job, life's stresses have
increased dramatically.
Why do children nowadays,
mine not excluded, feel like they
deserve so much for so little?
When shopping at Walmart you
hear the crying, and occasionally
screaming, kids wanting toys. It
doesn't matter that they have a
toy box (or two) full at home,
and probably more at Granny's
house, they want more.
I cringe when I hear them,
feeling sorry for the parents and
the attention it draws, right up
until I realize the parents could
care less. They ignore the kids,
letting them pitch a fit in the
middle of the store while every-
one else suffers, or better yet,
give in and buy the toy.
Since when did it become okay
to let your kids rule your life. I
realize not everyone believes in
spanking, but I am a firm be-
liever it works when done prop-
erly. I come from a family full of
"spankers." There were an elect
few aunts and uncles who didn't
believe as my parents did and
as kids we would sit around and
criticize those kids who whined
constantly or threw tantrums.
Even as kids, we understood the


happened
need for discipline and realized
it made us better people in the
long run, although being on the
receiving end was no fun.
A lack of discipline is preva-
lent today. Kids disrespecting
parents, teachers and other
adults, vandalizing other peo-
ple's property, etc. What people
don't seem to understand is that
today's generation has turned
into a "gimme" group. They de-

I don't want to lump all kids
into this group. There are some
very good, responsible kids out
there. Unfortunately, they are
few and far between. I realize
how easy it is to want more for
your kids than you had and I
hear that frequently, but are you
doing them any favors by giving
them all they ask for?


Parents need to step up. A
wise person once told me we
aren't our child's best friend, we
are their parents. It is our re-
sponsibility to raise kids who re-
spect others, and work hard for
what they earn. Society can get
better but it is our job, as par-
ents, to make it that way.

there not enough room in the new jail to

there is ample room, it would appear to

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION


Urged t


Community
The Baker County Commis-
sion went about making the
county greener the evening of
May 4, in more ways than one.
The board approved both the
development of a community
garden intended to help supply
the Samaritan food bank on US
90 with fresh fruits and vegeta-
bles and the placement of a pub-
lic paper recycling bin on county
property.
The request for placement
of the recycling bin came from
Boy Scout leader Greg Shepard
and Joseph Anderson of Paper
Retriever Recycling, a subsidiary
of the paper and wood products
manufacturer AbitibiBowater.
Mr. Shepard leads a co-ed
youth group that hopes to build
an environmental stewardship
project around the bin, which
Paper Retriever will maintain
free of charge.
"Long term, we'd like to see
these at the county dumps," Mr.
Shepard told commissioners.
Paper products disposed of in
Paper Retriever's 7-cubic-yard
bin will be used at AbitibiBowa-
ter paper mills, Mr. Anderson ex-
plained, eliminating such waste
from garbage bound for the New
River landfill.
He also said the youth group
will be paid for each ton of paper
that makes it into the bin.
Paper Retriever already oper-
ates in other Northeast Florida
counties including Duval, Clay
and St. Johns.
Then, one of the Baker County
Farmers Market's chief organiz-
ers, Helene Guest of Lawtey, re-
quested permission to use about


o take 'green' measures


garden for food bank; paper recycling


one of the county's six acres ad-
jacent to the sheriffs complex
off CR 228 N. for a community
garden.
"It's something very near and
dear to my heart," said Ms. Guest,
an avid gardener. "Our economy
has not recovered and there are
still people suffering."
The Samaritan food bank,
located between Macclenny and
Glen St. Mary on the south side of
US 90, receives donations from
local grocers and the Walmart
Distribution Center, but much
of the supply is non-perishable
packaged foods lacking in nutri-
tional value.
'"The food, as fast as it comes
to the shelves of the food bank,
it goes right back out," she said.
"It's usable to eat, but it's not
fresh produce."
Ms. Guest also pointed to the
educational benefits the commu-
nity garden could offer students
and others eager to learn how
to grow fruits and vegetables at
home. She said school field trips
to begin planting in the fall have
been coordinated already.
"Teaching that to children
- service to others should be
a part of their everyday life," said
Ms. Guest, who retired this year
as the manager of Macclenny's
Wachovia Bank branch. "I'm re-
ally excited to get started. We just
need the land."
With the commission's bless-
ing, the site will be cleared of
what Ms. Guest described as
small saplings and a fence is also
planned. Ms. Guest said she's
secured sponsors to cover such
costs and therefore wasn't re-


questing any funding from the
county.
The board at one time planned
to construct a county administra-
tion building on the land, but a
lack of grant funding tabled the
project.
"Since we're on hold with our
project, it sounds like a good fit,"
said commission chairman Alex
Robinson.
In other business that eve-
ning:
Despite a county-wide freeze
on hiring and pay raises, com-
missioners decided to increase
the salary of IT specialist Clint
Shivers by $15,000 in an effort
to keep him from taking a simi-
lar position at Northeast Florida
State Hospital.
Mr. Shivers had been paid
$35,134 and will now receive
$48,200.
County Manager Joe Cone
and the board heard from a
number of department heads
expressing the desire to keep Mr.
Shivers on board. He maintains
all of the county's computers and
software, including those at the
courthouse, assists with voting
machine testing prior to elections
and maintains public records da-
tabases of the clerk of court and
tax collector offices.
Mr. Cone recommended the
raise given the costs associated
with hiring and training a re-
placement, even if someone with
sufficient qualifications could be
hired at Mr. Shivers' existing sal-
ary.
"It's not a good business de-
cision," he said of not giving the
pay hike.


E-Z road base a health risk?


(From page 1
sioners to a "blistering" article
appearing in Jacksonville's Fo-
lio Weekly about the material's
safety, specifically its use on a
residential property in Middle-
burg.
"Before we use any more of
that material," Mr. Crews cau-
tioned, "we should make sure it's
not hurting folks."
The largest application of EZ-
Base in the county was more than
18,000 tons applied to Claude
Harvey Road before it was paved
with asphalt, which seals the base
and prohibits the spread of toxins
found in the material.
The fly-ash and lime rock mix-
ture comes from JEA's Northside
Generation Station, a coal-burn-
ing power plant.
EZBase contains arsenic, lead,
mercury and many other metals.
According to a material safety
data sheet from the US Depart-
ment of Labor's Occupational
Safety and Health Administra-
tion (OSHA) on EZBase, it also
has seven other "hazardous com-
ponents."
The data sheet specifically
warns that prolonged inhalation
of one of the components, silicon
dioxide, can cause chronic bron-
chitis and a lung-scarring condi-
tion called silicosis.
Skin or eye contact with EZ-
Base is not recommended, nor
is allowing it to become dry and
dusty, which makes dangerous
contact more likely.
Nonetheless, FDEP condones
the proper use of EZBase, and
has since 2005.
FDEP officials said problems
arise when the material's applied
inappropriately without respect
for department guidelines, like
using the it upon delivery so it
doesn't dry out and become air-
borne.
"The main thing is you try to
keep it contained and don't let
it go out anywhere," said Rob-
ert Fletcher, the county's road
department director. "Once it's
sealed down and rolled, you're
OK. You just have to keep it from
migrating into wetlands and
keep it out of ditches and swales.
That's the main concern."
EZBase is also not supposed
to be left uncovered at sites adja-
cent to wetlands, water bodies or
roadside ditches; which occurred
on the Claude Harvey project in
October 2007 and again at Little
St. Mary's Park in June 2008.
Mr. Fletcher said a contractor
hired by JEA to market EZBase
failed to provide the proper di-


reactions. JEA eventually did so
itself after firing the contractor.
"We didn't have the official,
appropriate directions on how
to use it," he said. "[The contrac-
tor] did a poor job of educating
people."
FDEP hasn't seen any evi-
dence of harmful impacts from
more recent applications of EZ-
Base at St. Mary's Shoals Park off
Odis Yarborough Road.
JEA has been sampling water
at the park, including Cedar Creek
and ditch lines, and reporting the
results to FDEP's Tallahassee of-
fice for the last six months.
"There's been no red flags or
indications that the material is
going to cause a problem in the
environment," said Lee Martin,
an FDEP engineer with that of-
fice.
The testing will continue for
six more months.
The park's main entrance and
parking area, which is covered
with EZBase, is set for paving
later this summer. A secondary
entrance with EZBase Fred
Taylor Road is not apart of that
project, Mr. Fletcher said.
EZBase has also been ap-
plied, and remains uncovered, at
Glen Nursery. It was used on the
newly-relocated Glen Nursery
Road that runs adjacent to the
interstate and connects with Reid
Stafford Road.
FDEP was unaware of that
project until an April 23, when
notified of it by The Press, and
sent an inspector to investigate
the site south of I-to and west of
CR 125.
"The EZBase application


looked good; however, there were
some cracks in the EZBase so we
will be asking JEA to rework the
material to eliminate the cracks,"
said FDEP spokeswoman Jodi
Conway.
As for the future use of EZBase
in Baker County, Mr. Fletcher
said it's not out of the question.
"Unless we plan to pave over
it, we probably won't use it any-
more, just because of the bad
publicity," he aid. "Ultimately, it
will be up to the [county commis-
sion]."
In addition to the roads de-
scribed above, EZBase has been
used on Denise Street, Deerwood
Circle, James Britt Road, Ruben
Crawford Road, Thomas Road,
Rufus Powers Road, Ruise Lane,
Thomas Sweat Road, Woodlawn
Cemetery Road and a residential
property owned by Gary and Ja-
net Smother at 12737 N. SR 121.
All are paved today.


Clerk of Court Al Fraser said he
will pledge money for the raise, at
least for one year, from IT funds
set aside in the court budget.
Commissioner Mike Griffis
said research on similar posts
in other government agencies
showed salaries in the $47,000-
54,000 range, and some even
higher.
"I appreciate you even giving
us a chance to keep you," he told
Mr. Shivers.
Though approval of the raise
was unanimous, Commissioner
Michael Crews said the funda-
mental unfairness of giving only
one employee a raise weighed
heavily on him.
"We have other county em-
ployees who are underpaid," he
said. "Is the board putting itself
in the position of hearing this
three or four times a year?"
In another personnel related
decision this week, commission-
ers awarded a paving bid for
the main entrance and parking
area of St. Mary's Shoals Park to
APAC, the low bidder, but also
directed county staff to hire a
temporary supervisor to ensure
that APAC does the job correctly.
The latter decision came on
the heels of comments from
Commissioner Michael Crews
about what he called "at best sub-
standard" work from APAC on
previous road projects, particu-
larly the recent repaving on CR
229 south near his residence. Mr.
Crews said the road shoulders
are deteriorating, basketball-size
chunks of asphalt were left in the
roadway and deep ruts were left
in the ditches.
"It seems like they tore up
more than they actually fixed,"
he said.

ing relationships that can help
prevent and solve crimes.
"What this requires is that 10
minutes out of every hour on a
deputy's 12-hour shift, they will
have some community inter-
action," explained the sheriff.
"They will either be in businesses
- they'll turn off their cars; that's
going to help us on gas consump-
tion or they're going to get into
neighborhoods, talk to kids, talk
to parents and find out what are
their concerns that the sheriffs
office can help with."
That interaction is mandatory
for officers on patrol and those
higher up the chain of com-
mand.
"They won't have a choice,"
Mr. Dobson said. "Ten minutes of
every hour they work on a shift,
they will be doing something,
and we'll be keeping stats on
that. How many citizens have we
spoken to; how many businesses
have we been in ... They're going
to document that we're doing it."
The "Drop it-Lock it-Stop it"
initiative will also involve inter-
action with residents and busi-
ness owners outside the normal
scope of responding to crimes
after they happen.


As deputies travel the commu-
nity, they'll be looking for open
garages, unlocked doors and
other things that increase the risk
of crime. They'll also be stopping
by businesses regularly to make
themselves more visible, and in
turn, deter criminal behavior.
"We can stop crime before
it occurs," Sheriff Dobson said.
"We're going to help our citi-
zens look at their homes and
their neighborhoods to help us
find ways to prevent a burglary
or theft. That deals with garage
doors, bicycles in the yard or toys
in the yard; boats, rods and reels,
or anything of that nature that we
think they need to be made aware
of."
The sheriff believes the days
when residents could leave their
doors unlocked are gone.
"We're not the same Baker
County we used to be, therefore
we can't act like we used to," he
said. "That's a sad day for us that
we can't have those kind of good
feelings, but if we can get the
community involved along with
deputies riding in the neighbor-
hoods and by businesses, we
think we can lower our crime
rate."

NEW RIVER LANDFILL



O'Neal 'insulted' in Alachua


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR t(
reporter@bakercountypress.com p
Alachua County and City of Gainesville y
commissioners rebuffed New River landfill
director Darrell O'Neal the afternoon of April [
29, asking that he not deliver a 15-minute i
presentation responding to what he called e
misstatements made earlier in the month by ta
Alachua County's major trash hauler to both c
bodies. a
"It was pretty insulting," Mr. O'Neal said tl
the following day. f(
The director had traveled with Karen
Cossey, chairwoman of New River's board of a
directors, to the 1:oo pm joint meeting be- $
tween the two commissions. t
They waited for more than an hour to s
speak, but after Mr. O'Neal approached the D
podium, Cynthia Moore Chestnut, Alachua's p
board chairwoman, and Gainesville Mayor
Pegeen Hanrahan suggested the presentation h
be withheld so that Waste Management, op- o
erator of the Chesser Island landfill in south-
ern Georgia that's competing with New River r,
for disposal of Alachua's commercial garbage, h
could present alongside New River.
"Admittedly I won't have to sit through
[Mr. O'Neal's presentation] if we put it off, but o
would it be better to have them compared side C
by side, rather than hearing this today and the W
other one a later day?" asked the mayor. t
"I think it may be better, to have the whole p
complete picture," said Ms. Chestnut. "I'd like A
to hear them both together."

THE OFFICE MART
110 South Fifth St.


Two escaped prisoners from a
west Georgia county were caught
the morning of April 26 driving a
pickup truck that had been stolen
from a farm north of Macclenny
near the state line.
Chief sheriffs investigator
Chuck Brannan said he was no-
tified by a detective in Liberty
County, GA that morning after
the 2001 Nissan was stopped and
determined to be stolen.
The truck's owner, Ronald
Francis, had reported it was
missing from his property the
previous evening, and police also
learned another vehicle used by
the escapees from Harris County
was found abandoned on Farley
Bumsed Rd. in Charlton County
just north of the state line.
The inmates were identified
as Jammaal Castilla, 22, a federal
prisoner, and Joe William Sea-
born, 37, who was being detained
by Harris County.
Maj. Brannan had no details
on the escape or the inmates'
criminal record.
"We figure they left the other
car just over the line and walked
to the farm near Twin Bridges,


took the truck and headed
back north again on 121 toward
Folkston and northeast to near
Hinesville where they were
caught," said the investigator.
Baker County issued warrants
for grand theft, but likely the local
charges will be dropped in lieu of
others in the Georgia counties.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Arrests



after guns



are fired



at melee

Both parties to a confrontation
late on May 1 during which shots
were fired from two guns were
arrested later for aggravated as-
sault.
Charged with third-degree fel-
onies after police sorted out the
events that took place on Vicki
Dr. off Woodlawn Rd. were Tra-
vis Crawford, 24, of Macclenny
and Timothy Leighton, 27, of
Maxville.
The latter suspect was in a
vehicle driven by his mother that
was stopped near Interstate 10
and SR 228 by Sgt. Brad Dough-
erty about 12:20 the morning of
May 2.
Police were investigating a
report that shots were fired, and
Deputy Shawn Bishara said Mr.
Leighton was returned to the
scene where Mr. Crawford was
detained.
The two apparently argued in
the presence of Rachel Crawford,
the estranged wife of Mr. Craw-
ford and until recently the girl-
friend of Mr. Leighton.
The words escalated before
Mr. Crawford allegedly reached
into his vehicle for a .22 caliber
rifle that he fired several times
in the direction of Mr. Leighton,
who took off running into a near-
by residence where he retrieved a
.12 gauge shotgun.
He allegedly fired that weapon
into the air to scare off Mr. Craw-
ford, who then left the scene.
The shotgun was retrieved from
the residence and the rifle from
a wooded area aside the Country
Club Lounge on South 6th.
In other reports:
Benjamin Martin, 23, of Glen
St. Mary was arrested for domes-
tic battery on his wife Paula, 24,
outside Mercantile Bank just af-
ter noon of April 29.
The wife, who is employed
at the bank, told Deputy John
Hardin she and her husband ar-
gued about use of a vehicle and
he snatched keys from her hand,
causing a laceration. She also al-
leged she was held briefly against
her will.
Criminal complaints for do-
mestic battery were filed against
both parties involved in an argu-
ment the evening of April 27 over
custody of their infant son.
Deputy Larry Clark said Dan
Hope, 27, denied acting aggres-
sively against Xavier Ruise, 25,
when she came to his residence
on MLK Dr. about 7:30 to pick up
the baby.
The mother claimed the baby
was not being properly cared for,
an allegation that Deputy Clark
said was not borne out by an in-
spection of the child and the con-
dition of Mr. Hope's residence.
He also said Ms. Ruise made
several inconsistent statements,
including that scratches on her
arm were made by the ex-boy-
friend.
A 16-year-old male neigh-
bor was arrested for battery of
his landlord off Hid Dugger Rd.
south of Sanderson the evening
of April 26.
An argument between the
youth and Kary Godwin, 32, al-
legedly started over an threat-
ened eviction and both claimed
self-defense. Deputy Bishara said
witness statements and physical
marks on Mr. Godwin suggested
the teen was the primary aggres-
sor.
A complaint for battery against
the landlord will be forwarded to
the state attorney's office.

Historic Glen Nursery bell is recovered Crack is found on


An historic bell stolen from the Glen St.
Mary Nurseries the night of March 5 was re-
covered last week at a residence north of Mac-
clenny.
The bell, estimated to weigh around 300
pounds, was lowered from a 20-foot tower
sometime during the night and police had no
clues on its disappearance until it showed up
in a photo taken at Scrappy Pappy's Recycling
on SR 121 north.
Maj. Chuck Brannan, chief investigator at
the sheriffs department, said the scrap yard
owner Wilmar Bryant gave the bell to Charles
Lauramore and he stored it in a barn on his
property off CR 23C.
Mr. Lauramore told police he sought the


bell as a collector's item and was unaware
of the theft from the nursery. It was then re-
turned to nursery president Lin Taber, who
earlier offered a $400 reward for its recov-
ery.
The bell is believed to be at least 11o years
old and for decades was rung near the nursery
office signaling the start and end of work days
and lunch hours.
Maj. Brannan said police have urged Mr.
Bryant to retain photographic records of scrap
brought to his collection site because of the
rash of stolen property turning up there.
"We'll have a more difficult time figuring
out who stole the bell or who brought it there
because the records are incomplete," said the

In an unrelated case, Dustin Lee Irish,
23, of Glen St. Mary was arrested recently
for fraud after he brought heavy storm wa-
ter grates, rings that hold manhole covers
and other iron material to the scrap yard and
turned it in for cash.
Maj. Brannan said the materials were sto-
len from the Greystone Subdivision in east
Glen St. Mary. They were stored on the prop-
erty and had yet to be installed because the
sagging housing market halted completion of
the project.
Mr. Irish is charged with a third-degree
felony because he signed an affidavit affirm-
ing he owned the property.

Alt. School student


Several drug-related arrests
were made in the county the past
week, including that of a 15-year-
old male student at the county's
Alternative School found with
crack cocaine in a plastic bag.
School principal John Staples
told police he was searching stu-
dents at the school for disciplin-
ary problems in the early after-
noon of April 29 when he found
a baggie of crack in the pants
pocket of the student.
Mr. Staples at the time was
conducting an investigation into
the theft of an iPod from another
student.
The boy, with a Glen St. Mary
address, was charged with felony
possession and the case turned
over to the Department of Juve-
nile Justice. He was released into
the custody of a guardian.
In other felony arrests:
Lavar Chaplin, 21, of Jack-
sonville was charged with at-
tempting to bring a small amount
of marijuana into Baker Correc-
tional prison the morning of May
1.
Kemp Martin, an officer at the
prison, said he found the mari-
juana in a baggie stuffed into
Mr. Chaplin's right shoe during
a routine search of visitors that
morning.
The suspect told Deputy Bran-
don Kiser he was unaware of the
pot in the shoe, which he claims
belongs to a cousin who placed it
there without his knowledge.
Two brothers who live off
Crews Rd. were arrested April
30 when sheriffs investigators
found five marijuana plants
growing in pots in the backyard
of their parents' property.
Wesley Zipperer, 22, and his
19-year-old brother David were
booked for growing the drug, a
third-degree felony.
Chief investigator Chuck Bran-
nan said police were looking for
stolen property in the area when
Investigator Steve Harvey came
upon the plants ranging from 2-
12 feet in height.
"When their [the suspects']
mother Julie Theophile was
asked who was growing marijua-
na in her backyard, she replied by
pointing at her sons and stating,


'That would be them,"' related
Investigator Brannan.
Kimberly Ready, 19, of Van-
couver, Canada was charged with
having drug paraphernalia in the
1992 Nissan she was driving the
evening of April 29 when it was
stopped near Miltondale and
Lowder in west Macclenny.
Deputy Jason Bryan said he
also charged Ms. Ready with con-
tributing to the delinquency of
minors because three males ages
15-17 were in the vehicle. One of
them had a small baggie of mari-
juana in his pants pocket and was
charged with misdemeanor pos-
session.
The boys were from the Mac-
clenny area. Deputy Bryan said
he stopped the Nissan because
one of its headlights was out. Ms.
Ready was ticketed for that.
Jonathan Anderson, 19, of
Glen St. Mary was charged with
misdemeanor possession and
contributing to the delinquency
of a 16-year-old male in his 1999
Chevrolet pickup the evening of
April 30 in the parking lot of the
Agriculture Center in west Mac-
clenny.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said
he approached the truck about
10:3o and smelled marijuana
smoke when questioning the oc-
cupants. They admitted to smok-
ing pot and a small amount was
found atop a book in the vehicle's
interior.

"He was always determined,
even as a baby," said Felicia
Raulerson of her 16-year-old
son Hampton. "When he came
home last October and told us
he wanted to try Jiu-Jitsu, we
weren't that surprised."
What did surprise his parents,
however, was their son winning
his very first tournament during
the Jax Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Open. The event took place at
the National Guard Armory on
Normandy Boulevard on April
24.
Not bad for a guy with only
seven months training.
Not bad for a guy who only has
one good arm.
Hampton was born with an
under-developed left arm that
extends slightly below the elbow.
When asked about his victory
he says winning the tournament
was a great surprise to him.

The 4oth anniversary of Earth
Day, observed nationally April
22, and the Baker County Ex-
tension Office's second annual
SpringFest were celebrated at the
Ag Center April 24.
Master gardeners and Baker
County horticultural agent Alicia
Lamborn manned information
booths in front of the center to
supply the public with recycling
tips.
There were examples of cheer-
fully decorated rain barrels and a
complimentary reusable cloth
shopping bag from Walmart was
issued to each attendee. Visitors
could also register for a drawing
to win free plants for their gar-
den.
An informative and eye-catch-
ing display gave visitors lots of
tips for reusing plastic contain-
ers. Such containers normally get
tossed in the trash and end up in
landfills where they take decades
or longer to decompose. The
master gardeners wanted to raise
awareness of the importance of
recycling such items.
One example was using plastic
milk jugs as gardening tools and
bird feeders.
Attendees could also take part
in a variety of gardening demon-
strations and presentations while
their children enjoyed nature and
gardening-themed craft activi-
ties.
The Plant Doctor (Dr. Kyle
Brown) booth stayed busy help-
ing gardeners get their most
pressing questions and con-
cerns addressed. The following


"I was really surprised," he
said, laughing. "Not to mention
exhausted. But credit goes to
my trainers. Those guys are
awesome."
Hampton trains twice a week
at Combat Martial Arts studio
on east Macclenny Avenue. The
instructors and co-owners of
the studio, Steven Kish, James
Collins and Chad Gaines, are
extremelyproud of their student's
achievement.
Hampton not only beat three
opponents to win but he also
tapped out (forced to submit)
every one of them into quitting.
Practitioners of Jiu-Jitsu
defend themselves without
weapons, subduing their
opponents by turning their own
energy against them. This branch
of martial art relies heavily on
holding and controlling one's
opponent by the sleeves and belt
of their uniform, which is known
as a gi.
"There is a lot of grappling
involved and usually a choke
hold of some sort. It boggles my
mind what Hampton is able to
do," said Mr. Kish.
Energy was high at the open,
with up to four matches taking
place at once. Mr. Kish describes
with great pleasure the experience


of witnessing Hampton take
down his first opponent.
"When the guy
realized he was up
against someone
with only one good
arm, he looked over
at his team with a
little smirk on his
face. I've seen that

Georgia clay. They will certainly

Question: "We noticed good
bloom on most fruit trees this
year. What made it different from
other years?"
Answer: "Fruit trees, like
many plants, need a chilling peri-
od around 40 degrees. There was
a prolonged cold period this last
winter which resulted in some
trees producing good fruit sets."
Question: "I've noticed a de-
cline in the number of bees visit-
ing my flowers and trees. Should
I be concerned?"
Answer: "There is some con-
cern because without adequate
pollination activity from bees,
plants don't bear fruit or veg-
etables. Spraying of pesticides
and viruses spread by a certain
type of mite to which the honey-
bees are particularly susceptible
are believed to be the root of the
problem.


he is today. From day one, Mrs.
Raulerson and her husband
DuShane decided to treat their
son as if he was no different from
anyone else.
"We never let him turn his
difference into an excuse," she
said. "I think that helped him
develop his attitude of going after
whatever he put his mind to.
Whatever it is, he finds his own
way to do it."
Mrs. Raulerson recalls when
Hampton was just a small child
and the family took him to a
Shriner's Hopital where a staff
member worked with the boy to
help him learn to tie his shoes.
Hampton was determined to
tie his own shoes with no help
before they left. According to
Mrs. Raulerson, the family had
to wait an extra day at the facility
to accommodate him.
"He wasn't going to leave until
he could tie his shoes himself and
so we just had to wait," she said.
Mr. Kish says they kid the
young man about a similar thing
at the studio which he takes in
stride.
"We tease him a lot. We tell
him it takes him longer to tie up
the string to his gi pants than it
does to defeat an opponent."
Hampton Raulerson has
definite plans for his future.
Currently dually enrolled, he
plans to pursue a career in
criminal justice.

Brothers looted AC components

Witness followed them; scrapper ID'ed them


Two brothers are charged with
grand theft and criminal mischief
for stealing an air conditioner
compressor and copper tubing
at a residence off Crews Rd. on
April 29.
David Zipperer, 19, and his
brother Wesley, 22, were identi-
fied by a witness in the neighbor-
hood who saw them leave the
property of Wesley Mobley and
drive to their residence in the
same neighborhood. There, wit-
ness Randall Mobley said he saw
the two unload materials from a
Chevrolet Blazer.
Deputy William Hillard and
Sgt. Bill Starling went to the resi-
dence where the brothers reside
and found a top to an air condi-
tioning unit that later matched
up with the vandalized one at the
Mobley residence.
The next day sheriffs investi-


gators interviewed the Zipperers,
who said they were in Jackson-
ville on April 29 and denied in-
volvement. They were arrested
after the match-up of the air con-
ditioner top.
Later that afternoon, Investi-
gator David Morgan obtained a
statement from owner Wilmar
Bryant of Scrappy Pappy's Recy-
cling north of Macclenny that the
brothers sold the air conditioner
parts the previous afternoon.
Mr. Bryant also produced a
form signed by David Zipperer
attesting he owned the items.
The brothers were booked also
for dealing in stolen property,
and David Zipperer for fraud.
They were also charged with
felony possession for growing
marijuana in pots at the Crews
Rd. residence [see related story
elsewhere in this edition].


In other thefts:
Michael Clark reported two
deer stands valued at $630 were
missing from a hunting lease off
Bill Davis Rd. near Glen St. Mary.
He last saw them two-three
months ago.
Nate Fraser said $120 was
taken from his wallet and a dozen
cans of beer from a refrigerator at
his residence off CR 23A while he
slept the night of May 2.
Mr. Fraser said a window was
broken to gain entry and he sus-
pects a neighbor may be respon-
sible.
Glenda Garcia of Lake City
told police a Jacuzzi tub valued
at $300 and three ceiling fans
worth $150 were taken from a
double-wide trailer she is rehab-
bing off Thomas Sweat Rd. in

Had eight prior suspensions


A motorist who allegedly ran
through a four-way stop in west
Macclenny late on May 2 was
arrested for driving on a license
with eight prior suspensions.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said
Mark Crews, 28, of Macclenny
has a five-year revocation on his
license because of drunk driving.
The officer stopped Mr. Crews
in a northbound 2005 Chevrolet
pickup after seeing it run through
the intersection of Blair St. and
Ohio Ave. about 11:oo.
Mr. Crews was also issued a
ticket for the traffic violation.
In other arrests:

2 deaths

are likely

suicides
Two deaths in the county over
the weekend, including that of a
pediatrician on staff at a local of-
fice, are being ruled suicides.
An employee at the Children's
Medical Center in Macclenny
alerted police because she had
not seen Dr. Barbara Mansmann
since the morning of April 24.
When Deputy Johnny Hodges
went to her residence on Copper
Court about 11:oo the morning of
May 3, she was found dead in her
bed.
Notes at the scene indicated
Dr. Mansmann, 50, took her own
life with an overdose of various
pills.
On May 1, Jack Strickland,
78, died of a self-inflicted gun-
shot wound in the garage of his
home off Mudlake Rd. south of
Glen St. Mary.
Mr. Strickland's wife Inez told
police the couple returned from
a trip to the grocery store about
noon and he entered the garage
where he retrieved a shotgun
from a storage room.
Kimberly Streiffert, 44, of
Glen was admitted to Shands
Jacksonville for treatment of a
bullet wound to the shoulder and
for a mental health evaluation
after she shot herself at her resi-
dence on Ponsell Nursery Rd.
Police and rescue personnel
were called to the address about
noon on April 29, and Ms. Strei-
ffert said she shot herself in the
left shoulder because she could
no longer endure the pain of an
injury several years ago.
The wound was described as
not life-threatening.


clenny was jailed for disorderly
intoxication after he was found
passed out on the second-floor
breezeway of the American Inn
on South 6th.
Deputy Daniel Nichols said
he was called to the motel about
midnight on May 1 and took Mr.
Schlitz to jail when he learned the
suspect was not staying there as
he initially claimed.
Deputy David Murray ar-
rested Daniel Barnes, 42, of
Jacksonville on the same charge
after responding to a suspicious
person call about 7:oo the eve-
ning of April 28.
Mr. Barnes was staggering on
Barber Rd. west of SR 228 and at
one point fell onto the road sur-
face.
Bruce Manior, 50, of Jack-
sonville was already in county
jail when re-arrested April 27 on
a Duval County warrant for fail-
ure to pay child support.


Mr. Manior was initially ar-
rested on April 23 for selling
crack cocaine to a police infor-
mant.

A 16-year-old student at
Baker County High School re-
ported the theft of an iPod Touch
the morning of April 28. He said
the person responsible used the
phone to log onto his MySpace
page and informed him of the
theft.


Victim of

flim-flam
A cashier at the Macclenny
Food Lion was the apparent vic-
tim of a "quick change" con at her
register the evening of April 28.
The employee, said to be new
on the job, told police she was
conned out of $149.70 by the
black male whose features were
largely hidden on a surveillance
tape by a ball cap.
The suspect first gave her a
$50 bill for purchase of a pack
of cigarettes, then sought change
for one dollar while the cashier
was giving him his change. In
quick succession, he then asked
for change on another $50 then
for other denominations, confus-
ing the cashier.
She described him as 5'11",
older with facial wrinkles and
wearing a tan shirt and black hat.
He also had a "chubby face."
The tape shows a second black
male standing nearby. They left
the store together.

By Dr. John Coleman, Podiatrist Foot Specialist


ARE YOU DIABETIC?
You may be entitled to obtain a pair of Diabetic
shoes with inserts paid for by insurance. Before you
get your next pair of Diabetic shoes
ask some Questions:

1. How long has the company been fitting
for diabetic shoes?
J Dr. Coleman has been fitting and
dispensing Diabetic shoes over 15 years.


2. If I have a problem, where is your office
and who will take care of me?

dispense shoes out of the trunk of their
car. If there is a problem with your
shoes or feet, you are on your own.

was about 200. Among the array of
speakers for the event that highlighted
old-fashioned patriotism and an un-
derstanding of the American Republic
founded on a constitution and rule of
law was Jim Nealis (pictured), a Jack-
sonville physician and conservative
talk show host. Among other speakers
under a hot spring sky that afternoon
were Phillipe Garcia, another physician
and a Cuban refugee, Joshua Warren,
Adam Faircloth of the sheriff's depart-
ment and County Commissioner Alex
Robinson. The Baker County Tea Party
organization was founded last year.

Sulkowski

sizing up

new squad

for spring

As any football coach will tell
you, sometimes you just have to
drop back and punt. That's what
the Wildcats had to do on Satur-
day when their plans for a Mid-
night Madness to open the first
day of training camp was rained
out.
The Jumbotron was flashing
"118 days to West Nassau" as the
rain pelted down on an empty
parking lot. Things were differ-
ent that afternoon, however as
fans shielded themselves against
the hottest day of the year and
watched a spirited practice out
on the field.
Many of the players weren't
ready for the 90-degree tempera-
tures and were clearly gassed as
they bent over at the waist and
held on to their knees to catch
their breath. Others handled it
better and impressed.
Overall, Coach Ryan Sulkows-
ki was pleased with what he's
seen so far.
"We've had two good prac-
tices," said Sulkowski. "We're
looking at about 142 players total
with 45 being 8th graders. The
heat's been an extra obstacle but
it's something that they have to
get used to."
Sulkowski is sorting through
the players and trying to decide
who fits where. However, he
knows that it will take time and
that when the Cats don pads for
the first time on Thursday that
will change things dramatically.
"I've seen plenty of kids who
look good in shorts and t-shirts
who look completely different
when they put on pads. That will
separate the upper tier from the
lower tier. Then we'll begin to see
who needs more reps at what po-
sition."
Sulkowski said that a layman
watching practice would see
"controlled chaos" but that it all
"has a rhyme and reason." The
coaching staff is still understaffed
and at present "we're not able to
give as much individual attention
as we'd like."
He laughed at the players' re-
action to him now that he has put
on his coach's hat.
"When they first met me they
took my nice guy exterior for
granted," said Sulkowski. "But
football is my livelihood and on
the field it's all business."
The Cats will continue to prac-
tice hard during the week and on
Saturday to prepare for the Red
and White game on May 22. They
will take the field at 6:00 pm in
a scrimmage that will allow the
coaches to see what they've
learned after three weeks.

Cats shut out Tigers


Boys bring home another district


title, advance to regionals


In the sport of baseball, the elements can
be a help or hindrance. That was certainly
the case April 27 when the Cats squared up
against Bishop Snyder in the sub-district
championship game at the BCHS field.
The Cardinals took the upper hand as the
Cats had difficulty finding the strike zone.
Snyder jumped out to a 4-0 lead and looked
to be completely in control of the game when
the bottom dropped out and the umpire called
the game.
When it resumed on Wednesday, the game
started as it had ended, with the Cats down
and Johnny Elasik on third and Chris Wad-
dell on first.
"I knew we had to spark our guys some-
how and wanted to get something going right
away," said Coach John Staples. "That night
my wife Staci said, 'Why don't you guys dou-
ble steal to get the boys going?' I replied she
was a librarian and I'm the coach."
When play resumed, Waddell broke for
second and when the pitcher threw to first,
Elasik raced to the plate with the Cats' first
run, on a perfectly executed "Staci Staples"
double steal.
With Waddell on second, Adam Holland
laid a perfect bunt down the third base line
for a hit, which put runners on first and third
and the Cats threatening. Cason Lowery, who

Scooter Gross bunts.
has been one of the Cats' hottest hitters lately,
hit a sacrifice fly to score Waddell. Thomas
Sirk and Klate Duval followed with walks and
sophomore Kyle Home hit a two-run single to
tie the game.
The Cats went ahead in the fourth when
Home singled. He advanced to third on an er-
rant pickoff play and scored on a wild pitch.
Cameron Crews pitched almost five solid
innings, giving way to Chris Waddell when
the Cardinals threatened in the 5th with two


outs and runners on first and second. Waddell
promptly struck out the Snyder hitter to end
the inning.
"Crewser and Wadsy did a great job on the
bump and Kyle Home got it done for us of-
fensively," said Staples.
The following day the Cats faced Union
County in the district championship game.
Chris Waddell got the start and completely
dominated the Tiger hitters on the way to a 4-
o shutout. Waddell only allowed one hit and
one walk while striking out nine Tiger hitters.
"Union County came in on a hitting hot
streak, but that was against lesser compe-
tition; not guys of Waddell's caliber," said
Staples.
Johnny Elasik and Cason Lowery had two
hits to pace the Cats. Adam Holland, Lowery,
Hunter Hanks and Kyle Home had RBI's to
produce the Baker County runs. In the last five
games the Cats have only committed a pair of
errors and have improved their win streak to
seven straight going into the regional playoffs
against Episcopal on Wednesday night, May
5, at 7:00 pm at the BCHS baseball field.
"I've said all along if we don't give them any
freebies we are a pretty unbeatable ball club,"
said Coach Staples, who is retiring after this
season.


Parker


takes 4th


at state


track meet
High jumper Kiana Parker
was the lone BCHS Wildcat at
the state track finals on Saturday
in Winter Park. Despite being in
the toughest competition of her
life, Parker
made a
great show-
ing, finish-
ing fourth
in the state
and miss-
ing the state
title by just
two inches.
The ju-
nior jumper
turned in a
leap of 5'2" Kiana Parker
to clear the
bar and take the fourth spot.
Parker's performance left Coach
Charles Ruise thinking about
next year.
"Kiana's just a junior and she
was very nervous," said Ruise.
"She's jumped 5'8" during the
year so with more practice we're
expecting big things from her."
"Her technique's good," said
assistant coach Dianna Hinson.
"It was just big match nerves."
Jordan Edwards of Tavares
High won the event with a jump
of 5'4".



FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD
Coach John Staples might
want to reconsider his decision
to hang up his cleats at the end
of this season. After Tuesday's
rain-out against Bishop Snyder,
somebody just might be on the
Wildcat's side.
The Cardinals shocked the
Wildcats early in the game as
they rattled out four runs to put
BCHS in a serious hole. Though
men were on base for BCHS, it
was about the worst start that the
Cats could have envisioned.
Then Mother Nature played
her hand, dropped buckets of wa-
ter on the field and got the game
cancelled for a day. The Wildcats
turned around on Wednesday to
beat the Cardinals 5-4 and ad-
vance to the district finals, which
they swept 4-0.
Hey, if even Mother Nature is
conspiring on your behalf it has
to mean something, right? Ei-
ther Staples should think again
or he should play the lottery. Or
maybe a trip to Vegas? If a bigwig
like Mother Nature is wearing a
Wildcat jersey, maybe the slot
machine gods will make the tum-
blers fall his way.
Think about it coach you
can't fight Destiny.
The weather gods were not
quite as cooperative with the
BCHS football team. Coach Ryan
Sulkowski had wanted to run a
Midnight Madness at the foot-
ball field at midnight on May i to
kick off spring practice, but the
weather didn't cooperate.
Though the Jumbotron was
flashing messages to beat the
band, the field was empty and
the lights were off as rain pelted
down. The first practice was
moved to Saturday afternoon.
There was a spirited practice on
the hottest day of the year so far.
Players showed some intensity
and a few even threw up always
a good sign in football terms. If
you've got people throwing up at
practice it's a sure sign that you're
working hard or else they ate too
much at lunch.
The first chance most of us
will have to see the new Wildcat
football team will be on May 22
for the Red and White game. I'll

Storm ends Bobcats' run at title


The Lady Bobcat softball team
finished the season as runners up
in the district April 15 at BCMS.
The Bobcats were surprised in
the district championship game
by Lake City, a team that they
had beaten on two separate oc-
casions.
The girls easily reached the


finals, but the Falcons started
the game red hot and the Bobcats
struggled. Lake City jumped out
to an early lead.
"We came out very flat," said
Coach Jon Mobley. "But as the
game went on we were coming
back and got within one run of
them."


It was then that the weather
took a hand in the game. With
BCMS threatening and the mo-
mentum definitely on the side
of the Bobcats, lightning cracked
in the distance and the umpire
called the game at the start of the
sixth inning.
The Bobcats were down 6-5 at


that point.
"This is a really good group of
girls," said Mobley. "It was un-
fortunate that the game ended
the wayit did. I'm convinced that
if the game had gone on that we
would have won the way we were
playing."

get closer to kickoff.
