Election's aftermath:

early voting popular;

spending gets results

Elections have winners and
losers, but lessons too.
Last week's primary showed
that early voting is becoming
more popular and that spend-
ing more money than your op-
ponent can help secure victory.
It also showed that deep
community roots can be just as
good as money in the bank.
The winning school board
and county commission candi-
dates all spent the most in their
respective races, according to
campaign finance reports filed
with the elections office.
They reflect campaign
spending through August 19.

giving them to charity.
Heading into last week's pri-
mary, the Democrat nominee
for the District 4 county com-
mission seat, Donnie Starling,
spent more on campaign signs,
T-shirts and other advertising
than his two primary opponents
- combined.
The nursery owner and Cuy-
ler resident spent $11,400 com-
pared to Chris Rhoden's $3903
and Michael Conner's $3964.
And while Mr. Starling ac-
counted for almost 60 percent
of the race's spending, he gar-
nered 43 percent of the votes.
Mr. Rhoden, however, re-
ceived the most votes per dollar
spent. In fact, the Glen St. Mary
resident and small business
owner received twice as many
votes per dollar (.18) as Mr.
Starling (.o9), and just slightly
more than Mr. Conner (.16).
The Republican nominee
for the District 4 seat, Adam
Giddens, outspent his oppo-
nent Jeana Duval by more than

for a slice of the transportation
logistics pie.
There's between 25 and 30
million square feet of indus-
trial warehouse space on the
drawing board today at five
locations in Baker, Duval, Co-
lumbia and Nassau counties.
Projections on the amount
of additional
space that
will be
needed in

da through 2020 range from
33 million to loo million square
feet, according to a 2008 studyby the
global infrastructure consulting firm Moffat
& Nichol and commissioned by Roberts Land & Timber
Investment Corporation.

The Lake Butler-based company is developing an in-
land port site near the US 90 interchange with I-lo west
of Sanderson known as Woodstock Park. A sec-
ond site is expected east of Macclenny
between US 90 and the interstate from
Dallas-based Jackson-Shaw Co.
Combined they could total roughly
95 3000 acres.
Then there's Jacksonville's 4000-
10 plus-acre Cecil Commerce Center,
about 500 of more than 2000 acres
owned by Plum Creek that's been ear-
marked by the Columbia County In-
dustrial Development Authority

roughly 18oo-acre in-
dustrial park site
south of Callahan

is well-positioned
in the race to develop
these sites, said county
planning director Ed Preston.
"There's always competition. But
here's what Baker County has working in its
favor," he explained.
The director pointed to Cecil Commerce
Center's need for infrastructure invest-
ments to make the center's vacant tracts
ready for development.
"They've used up all their best land," he
Columbia's IDA lacks approval from the state
for additional traffic on US 90 and the interstate, plus
it's farther from the Jacksonville port.
"We've got the available land. We've got the variance
for traffic on I-to and we're an equal distance from 1-95
and 1-75," said Mr. Preston, adding that the sites here are
18 months to two years ahead of the IDA in the planning

His adversity no barrier

David Manning's pat to the ministry

When David Manning began attending the
Christian Fellowship Temple in the mid 199os, he
knew he'd found a special place to learn about the
message and love of God.
David Thomas, one of the pastors of CFT, and
Mr. Manning developed an immediate kinship, a
bond that continues to grow stronger with each
passing year.
"Our members love David," said Pastor Thomas.
"It's hard not to love him."
When Mr. Manning was 7 years old he was
struck by a car while riding his bicycle. He awoke
in St. Vincent's Medical Center to find he was para-
lyzed from the chest down and unable to walk.
The future was uncertain, but he went through
several years of rehabilitation and eventually grad-
uated from Baker County High School.
He attended Lake City Community College (now
Florida Gateway College) for a while, met a girl, fell
in love and got married. The couple began attend-
ing CFT in 1995. He worked at the former Walmart
on Sixth Street.
The marriage ultimately ended, but by then he
was deeply involved with his new church family
who sustained him through the painful transition.
Today, Mr. Manning seldom sits still. He's ac-
tive at CFT and works as the youth pastor at First
Baptist Church of Sanderson.
In the afternoons he can be found coaching the
Baker County Middle School football team. Seeing
him zip around in his motorized wheelchair and
his modified van, it's hard to believe he deals every
day with such a serious handicap.
"I learned just how special David really is after
his divorce," said Pastor Thomas.
When Mr. Manning and his wife split, he lost
access to the vehicle he had depended on to get

him to and from church, but that didn't stop him.
If he couldn't catch a ride, he made the trip in his
"I took the back roads," he said. "I can actually
get this thing up to about 6 mph, but 3 mph is what
I usually travel. It takes me about seven minutes to
get to the church," he said.
Regardless of the weather, Mr. Manning faith-
fully attended CFT's three weekly services.
"We'd be gathering at the church for service and
it would storming something fierce," said Pastor
Thomas. "We'd look up the road and here's David
coming around the corner in the pouring rain. His
desire to be in God's house was so strong, it really
gripped my heart."
In time, Mr. Manning fully committed himself
to CFT and the day came when he approached
Pastor Thomas about, as he has expressed it, "be-
coming more" to the life of the church than just a
CFT is an independent church. Those seeking to
be ordained work in different capacities to become
accustomed to how all aspects of the church func-
tion. This facilitates finding just the right match for

in prison

A Macclenny man was sent
off to prison for one year after
pleading guilty on August 24
to being drunk at the wheel of
a pickup truck that collided late
last year with a vehicle contain-
ing a couple and their five chil-
dren on their way to church.
For 55-

DUI con-
Judge Pe-
ter K. Sieg
also tacked
Ronald Higginbotham on athree-
year, nine
month probation following the
defendant's release from pris-
on, fined him $2000 and $448
court costs and took his driver's
license away for life.
A hearing later will deter-
mine a restitution amount to
compensate the family of Mi-
chael and Debbie Combs of
Macclenny, who were injured
when Mr. Higginbotham's 2004
Dodge pickup drifted across the
center line on Woodlawn Rd. on
a curve and struck their vehicle
The accident occurred the
early evening of December
20, 200o9 as the Combs family
headed off to a church service
in Macclenny.
Judge Sieg of Gainesville,
filling in for Judge Phyllis Ros-
ier, rejected a plea agreement
reached earlier by former pros-
ecutor Michelle Lambert and
defense attorney Daniel Delves
that called for a shorter term in
Judge Rosier had earlier
said the initial plea pact was
unacceptable to her as well due
to Mr. Higginbotham's past re-
cord for drunk driving in Jack-
sonville, Port Orange, FL and
Baker County.
Prior to sentencing, Judge
Sieg said he would be unable to
lay his head on the pillow that
night knowing that the defen-
dant was serving anything less
than a prison term.
He suggested Mr. Higginbo-
tham use the time in prison to
reflect on how lucky he has been
avoiding killing someone else,
and how his irresponsible acts
could have resulted in death
or more serious injury to the
Combs family and others.
Mr. Higginbotham, a career
electrician, was first convicted
of drunk driving back in 1975.
Court records show that
when FHP Trooper D.L. My-
ers first arrived on the scene
after the 6:oo pm accident, Mr.
Higginbotham was slumped
at the wheel of the pickup and
appeared unaware of his sur-

candidate's spending appeared
to be more effective than the
eventual winner's.
Ms. Duval, a teacher at West-
side Elementary and Macclenny
resident, received .17 votes for
each dollar of spending. Mr. Gid-

.15 votes per dollar.

No primary was needed in the
race because neither candidate
had a challenger from their party.
The seat will be decided in the
general election November 2.
The latest campaign finance
reports show Mr. Robinson has
amassed $4350 since the race
began and held a $1951 campaign
funding lead as of the August 19
filing deadline.
Mr. Anderson has raised
$3543 in all and had $634 left at

the deadline.
Mr. Starling and Mr. Giddens
spent most of their election cash
during the primary.

"They're pushing real hard,"
he said. "They'll be a worthy op-
The IDA's executive director,
Jim Poole, was more confident
that future demand for inland
port facilities will exceed the sup-
"I think they'll compliment
each other," he said of the sites
in the region. "If even half of the
potential traffic we expect comes
to fruition, it will take quite a bit
of facilities in northeast Florida
to receive and move goods from
the port."
Mr. Poole said the authority
expects to begin site planning in
three to five months, but it could
be another 12 to 18 months to in-
stall roads and utilities.
"Then we'll work on getting
tenants," he said.
The presence of Florida Gate-
way College, formerly Lake City
Community College, may set the
area apart from Baker County,
which has no post-secondary
schools. The site is also located

just east of the Lake City airport,
adding another mode of trans-
portation for goods.
Timing will also be critical for
the inland port projects and the
Jacksonville port to take advan-
tage of the Panama Canal expan-
sion, which is expected to be fin-
ished in late 2014 or 2015.
Construction on the port's new
$208 million terminal at Dames
Point is scheduled for completion
in early 2014. It's been leased to
Hanjin Shipping Company of
Seoul, Korea.
More than $560 million worth
of improvements, most of which
is dredging, are needed at the
port to serve "post-Panamax"
vessels, however; according to a
recent report from The Florida
"All of these projects have
incredibly long lead times," said
Mr. Preston, the county's plan-
ning director. "All you can do is

The August 24 primary also
demonstrated the growing popu-
larity of early voting, which began
in 2004.
This year a record-setting
1559 voters cast ballots weeks
before the election. That's about
11 percent of the county's 13,673
registered voters and a third of
the total votes cast.
The 2006 primary's early vote
count totaled 1023 and 1564
people voted early in that year's

He said the vehicle's interior
reeked of alcohol, and the defen-
dant reached for a drink in a dis-
posable cup and poured it out the
driver's side window onto the
trooper's feet and pavement.
Trooper Myers also charged
him with careless driving, having
no proof of insurance and a seat
belt violation.

defendant appeared more con-

about the welfare of members of

their personality. They may also
work in other churches to fulfill
this purpose.
"We felt like David would be
a good match for the youth pro-
gram," said Pastor Thomas.
That's how Mr. Manning
suddenly found himself face to
face with a classroom of second
through fifth graders on Sunday
"They put me in charge of
children's church and boy was I
nervous that first day," said Mr.
Manning. "But the nervousness
passed quickly. The kids were
great. I found out this wheelchair
is actually a great icebreaker."
He started by telling the chil-
dren about his accident and what
it took to recover. He told them
how he didn't view the chair as
a hindrance. He invited them to
examine the chair and ask any
questions they wanted.
"Of course, the boys immedi-
ately wanted to know how fast
it can go," he said, laughing.
"With them, everything is about
Mr. Manning's work with
youth, both in church and on the
football field, eventually caught
the attention of a parent of a child
he was coaching.

The kids are Mr. Manning's
The beauty and irony of his
story is that as a wheelchair-
bound youth pastor, it is often
Mr. Manning who makes it pos-
sible for some children to get to
church by picking them up in his
"It's important to me that if
someone has a desire to be here
and to grow in the word of God,
then I'm to do everything I pos-
sibly can to make that happen."
Mr. Manning couldn't provide
a carpool for kids without his
trusty modified van, a gift from
members of the church and the
Music fund raisers and other
events at CFT helped to purchase
the van.
"People in the community, not
even affiliated with this church,
were immensely generous in giv-
ing toward the van's purchase,"
said Pastor Thomas. '"The day we
presented it to David was a joy-
ous occasion. People were lining
the sideways cheering for him."
"There were some tears that
day," said Mr. Manning. "I just
didn't know what to say."
Some other people, however,
did know what to say regarding
David Manning.

Several preachers have had
visionary experiences concern-
ing the remarkable youth pas-
tor. They have "seen" him going
out in his van and evangelizing
across the country.
Mr. Manning believes it will
happen. And he is looking for-
ward to the day he begins travel-
ing to help spread the message of
God's love.
He looks forward to another
day as well, one that is even more
exciting to him and the people
who know him best.
"Our church still believes in
miracles, even though in soci-
ety today, we don't see them as
much as we'd like," said Pastor
Thomas. "But that doesn't mean
they don't and can't happen. We
believe that David may one day
walk again."
Mr. Manning quietly but con-
fidently agrees. He believes his
great personal faith coupled with
evolving medical and scientific
advances could definitely make
walking again a reality.
'The dayis coming when I may
not need this chair anymore," he
said. "But for now, I'm more than
happy to being going about God's
business from it."

pines draped with Spanish moss,
it seems far away indeed.
The constant rush of wind in
the tree tops was hypnotic when
I arrived last Wednesday after-

Only a few people were about
and the campground was still
and quiet.
"The Pond," as folks in these
parts refer to it, was much fuller
than I remember seeing it since
moving here nearly five years
ago. All the recent rain has raised
the water line considerably.
I pulled my kayak to the beach
and stood looking out. The air
was invigorating and the sun on
the water sparkled.
The steady wind ruffled the
water's surface into a steady chop.
Out in the middle, one-foot high
waves were cresting with a bit of
white at the top. They seemed to
belong at the seashore instead of
this landlocked fresh water lake.
Maybe that's why they call
it "Ocean Pond," I remember

Questions fire overruns

Salaries $19K, repairs $35K more

The Macclenny City Commission got its first look
at the 2010-11 budget the evening of August 31 and
had a lot of questions, particularly about a number
of proposed increases in fire department spending.
Salaries are expected to rise from $347,705 in the
2009-10 budget to $362,523 in the fiscal year that
begins October 1.
Fire chief Buddy Dugger defended the roughly
$15,000 hike as needed to more accurately reflect
higher-than-expected overtime costs this year from
sick leave and state-mandated training.
"We didn't budget for all of this," he said regard-
ing more than $19,ooo in salary overruns so far this
year. Expenses for repairs and maintenance have
also run over budget by about $35,000.
Chief Dugger cited seven non-budgeted repairs
that were needed, sometimes due to negligence by
city employees.
Those included a fire engine's collision with bay
doors at Station 2 that cost $4,500 and resulted in
the driver's suspension; a firefighter resigned after a
motor vehicle crash that cost the department $6500;
and a mistake while servicing a fire truck's engine
that led to a motor replacement cost of $14,500.
The reaction from city commissioners and City
Manager Gerald Dopson was tempered.
"I saw a $42,000 increase and I about fainted,"
said Commissioner Vernon Bennett of the fire
department's overall increase in planned expendi-
tures. "But you gave us a good explanation. We need
to pray that we don't have so many people get sick

Daughter's jewelry

worth $5K is missing

Few leads were given to police
after a Sanderson woman report-
ed $5300 in jewelry belonging
to her daughter and herself had
apparently been taken from her
residence off Cedar Creek Dr.
Kathryn Smyth said her
daughter Amanda, who no longer
lives with her but left a jewelry
box in her care, discovered the
loss when she went to retrieve a
pair of earrings on August 23.
The mother reported the theft
two days later, and told Deputy
Daryl Mobley small trinket boxes
belonging to her were also miss-
ing. The jewelry in her daughter's
box was valued at $5000.
Ms. Smyth said several per-
sons had been at the residence in
the two months since her daugh-
ter moved out, including a niece
and friends. Deputy Mobley said
there were no signs of forced en-
In other thefts:
A small wood deck, canvas
awning and concrete steps were
taken from rental property owned
by Stanley Monds and located off
Jefferson St. in Glen St. Mary.

ed police on August 22, said the


cited in

gas theft
It appears a Macclenny con-
venience store is the victim of
a unique "hose switching" gas
pump theft technique.
The sheriffs office was made
aware of the incident after store
employee Douglas Stivers found
a discrepancy of fuel sales versus
inventory on pump 3 at the store
on US 90 across from the county
Mr. Stivers said the morning
of August 28 that 160 gallons
were unaccounted for and likely
had been pumped from the tank
using the "switch" scam. Value
of the missing fuel was placed at
"[The employee] explained
that people have been known
to break open the bottom of the
pump, unscrew the pump from
the hose, and hook up their own
hose to pump gas," reads the re-
port by Deputy Steven Smith.
The officer noted a lock had
been broken off the bottom panel
of the pump station.
Mr. Stivers told the officer
there are no surveillance cameras
monitoring the pump islands in
the front of the store.
The receipts covered the pre-
vious night's sales.

property was valued at $4200.
A witness told Sgt. Tony Nor-
man she was on the property
August 17 and two white males
drove up inquiring whether it
was for sale. She recalled they
drove off in an older red Chevro-
let pickup.
A water pump valued at $325
was taken from a residence be-
longing to James Dobbs of Live
Oak and located off Clarence
Dobbs Rd. near Sanderson.
The theft was reported by
Johnny Bryant, the caretaker
who named a person who had re-
cently been evicted as a possible
Amanda Williams told police
she returned to her apartment
off South 7th St. in Macclenny
the morning of August 27 after
an absence of 24 hours to find a
door had been forced open and
parts of the interior ransacked.
It appeared the intruder or
intruders drank a bottle of liquor
and possibly slept there during
her absence.
A rear door was pried to
gain entry to the residence of
Elsie Roberson off CR 127 north
of Sanderson during a 22-hour
period starting the afternoon of
August 22.
She told police prescription
medicine was missing from a rear

and have accidents. It all kind of globbed together
this year."
The fire chief expects his department to operate
under budget in 2010-11 and the city manager said
he expects the same even if it means employees
working overtime voluntarily.
'The challenge for you is to do whatever you can
and get creative to stay within this salary figure,"
Mr. Dopson said.
Changes to other city departments' spending
plans were mixed with some rising and others, like
the costs for legal counsel, falling.
The new budget reduced Macclenny attorney
Frank Maloney's projected hours by more than 61
on the year, saving about $9000.
Meanwhile salary expenses in the road, water
and sewer departments are expected to increase
An employee normally working in the road de-
partment has been filling in on garbage trucks when
those employees take leave, which increased the
road department's budget by roughly $4600 in the
coming year. The sewer department added a new
employee to drive the city's sludge truck and the
water department's overtime rate increase added
about $2000.
Also new to the road department's budget is
$10,000 for the replacement of trees in downtown
Macclenny with shrubs or shorter trees that won't
block merchants signs.
In all, the city's $6.6 million spending plan for
2010-11 is $208,639 higher than the current year.
Public hearings to adopt the budget are set for Sep-
tember 14 and 28, both at 5:15 pm in city hall.

The Baker County Health Department is eager to serve
the community and offers a wide variety of medical ser-
vices including:

Man flees on foot from Glen to

A Macclenny man who suc-

and Macclenny early on
August 24 was nabbed

Wesley Belford, 27,
fled initially on a bicycle
after he was spotted out-
side a closed laundro-

about 4:50 that morn- Wesle
ing. Deputy Patrick Mc-
Gauley said he trailed the suspect
along the railroad with the aid of
his canine Tango after Mr. Bel-
ford was seen by Deputy Johnny
Bryan hopping off the bike and
heading south to the railroad in
east Glen.
With the dog and deputy fol-
lowing him from the west, the
suspect was seen again running
along the tracks west near the
Macclenny city limit, and he
again evaded officers heading
toward Big Oak Court.
An off-duty deputy, Steven
Smith, was monitoring radio
traffic and when a description of
Mr. Belford, who was wearing a
white tank top and light-colored
shorts, was aired he recognized
the suspect as a neighbor.
Believing the suspect was in-
side, police surrounded the resi-
dence and were initially told by a
female he was not there. Shortly
after he was collared by Deputy
Smith as he attempted to run out
a back door.

Fred Cole


Navy veteran and Orange Park
resident Fred Cole (pictured) took
over the helm at the Baker County
YMCA recently and replaces for-
mer director Jim Bouldin. Mr. Cole,
35, has worked for the First Coast
YMCA organization for seven years,
most recently as the Johnson Fam-
ily YMCA's associate director."I just
want to really put the YMCA back
in the forefront in Baker County,"
he said. "I want the community to
know the Y's here for them and it
always will be:'The Fredricksburg,
VA native recently celebrated his
14th wedding anniversary and has
two daughters, ages 10 and 16.
When he's not working, the self-
described "sports guy" said he's
usually volunteering as a youth
sports coach or watching sports on
television. "I'm happy to be here,"
he added. "Everyone's treated me
great from the staff to the resi-
dents. I look forward to working
here and helping the community:'


He was booked for resisting
arrest without violence, loitering
and trespass.
Two days later Mr.
Belford was re-arrested
while still in jail on a
warrant for driving on a
suspended license.
In another recent
case, Lee Battles, 20, of
Macclenny was found
the afternoon of August
26 hiding in the attic of
his Grissholm St. resi-
dence. He was wanted
on a warrant for viola-
elford tion of probation and
sale of marijuana, and
sheriffs deputies went to the
residence on a tip he was there.
Deputy Shawn Bishara said
officers got no response knocking
on windows and doors, and once
given permission to enter by the

suspect's mother, they noticed
that sheet rock was missing from
the ceiling of a utility closet.
Police also found that a hall-
way ceiling had nearly caved
from above, and they used a
crawl space above a closet to en-
ter the attic.
Other warrant arrests:
William Webb, 28, was taken
into custody at his residence off
Cedar Creek Farms Rd. north of
Sanderson the afternoon of Au-
gust 27. He was sought in Duval
County for violation of probation
for domestic battery.
Jason Eddins, 33, of Mac-
clenny was arrested in the early
afternoon of August 25 when
police stopped the pickup he
was riding in on SR 121. He was
wanted in Putnam County for an
unspecified offense.

source/mitigation bank permit (#0288852-001) to
the Bayfield Mitigation, LLC to establish the Bayfield
Mitigation Bank (SMB) on a +1994.64 acre parcel.
The project includes the preservation of the site and
the restoration or enhancement of a mosaic of up-
land and wetland communities described as longleaf
pine/xeric oak, mesic pine flatwoods, hydric pine
flatwoods, ecotone, cypress dominated or mixed
wetland forest depressions, and mixed slough and
stream swamp. Credits generated may be used as
mitigation for future unavoidable wetlands impacts

the service area. Restoration and enhancement will
be accomplished by installing ditch blocks and low
water crossings, removing -1/2 ac. of fill road and
associated ditches, thinning and removal of planted
pine, reducing woody shrub density, decreasing
bedding impacts, planting longleaf pine and peren-
nial groundcover species, supplemental planting of
cypress, hardwood and mixed wetland forest veg-
etation in appropriate habitats, and implementing a
long-term management program including frequent
prescribed burns. The mitigation was assessed
by the Uniform Mitigation Assessment Method

tential of 280.77 freshwater credits (108.10 Hydric
Flatwoods/Wet Prairie Credits (38.50%) and 172.67

Vystar chief: affinity for rural areas

"I have a particular affinity
for small rural communities like
Macclenny," said Terry West,
president and CEO of Vystar
Credit Union in a talk to the Baker
County Rotary Club August 11.
"When I come to such places, I
feel at home," he said.
Establishing a Vystar branch
in Macclenny and similar com-
munities is a source of personal
pride for Mr. West.
He recalled spending his for-
mative years in a rural commu-
nity and how that came to play
a significant role in the path his
career ultimately took and his
personal commitment to help-
ing people with their financial
Mr. West grew up in a farm-
ing town in North Carolina, the
youngest of four children. His
father worked on a tenement to-
bacco farm.
"The area where I grew up was
the type of place where you often
saw crops growing right up to the
sides of the farm houses," said
Mr. West.
His family was poor. Farming
took a tole on his father's health
so he switched to driving for the
Gulf Oil Company, delivering
heating oil to private homes.
Mr. West's oldest sister taught
him to read before he began first
Learning would come easy to
the young boy and as the years
passed, his teachers had a pro-
found impact on his life.
"Being 'a poor kid' among a
student body of smart, rich kids
was frustrating for me, I admit,"
said Mr. West. "In spite of that I
liked learning. I liked my teach-
ers and I made good grades. By
the time I reached eighth grade, I
knew I wanted to be a teacher."
But becoming a teacher meant
going to college and college cost
money; money his parents did
not have.
In a twist of fate, his next door
neighbor was a retired state sena-
tor and one of his father's clients

Vystar president Terry West.

was the president of First Citi-
zen's Bank of North Carolina.
Both men wrote letters on his
behalf which helped him secure
grants and full scholarships to
attend North Carolina State. He
majored in mathematics and
earned a teaching certificate,
becoming the first person in his
family to attend and graduate
from college.
Teaching salaries were mea-
ger. In the summer he tutored
students and taught at a commu-
nity college. He remembers going
to the grocery store and looking
at the fruit.
"I could have apples or ba-
nanas, but I couldn't afford both.
I had to make a choice," he said.
One summer, a serious ac-
cident rendered him unable to
perform his supplemental sum-
mer work and he couldn't pay his
apartment rent.

Desperate for money to tide
him over until his first paycheck
of the new school year, he turned
to the First Citizen's Bank, whose
president had helped him get his
scholarship. He asked for a $200
The bank did not make loans
for such small amounts, but since
he was a teacher, they sent him
to the state credit union where
he was eligible to borrow money
against his retirement.
"I didn't even know what
a credit union was," said Mr.
Four years later he went to
work for the credit union as a
loan officer. In 1988, he became
vice president of member ser-
vices for Jax Navy Credit Union
- later Vystar.
He became Vystar's president
and chief executive officer in

Mr. West believes his "apples
or bananas" experience helped
him understand that small com-
munities have an important need
for a good financial institution
with the customer's best interest
as its priority.
"Vystar's goal for communities
like Macclenny is to do all we can
to understand their particular
needs. Our people come to work
everyday with that goal in mind.
"It is important to have a pas-
sion for what you do. My father
taught me that. Teaching was
something I liked, but I can say
that credit unions and the people
they serve is what I love."
Vystar today is one of the larg-
est credit unions in the country
and originally began as Jax Navy
Federal Credit Union, which
served military and civil service
In 2001 it became the largest
state chartered financial institu-
tion headquartered in Florida
and "federal" was dropped from
the name.
In 2002, the credit union's
name was officially changed to
Vystar. Approval was received
from the State of Florida to open
membership to anyone living or
working within the five county
area including Baker, Duval, Clay,
Nassau and St. Johns Counties.
The Macclenny branch opened
in 2003.

October 23-25 in Atlanta.
The team is made up of Cindy
Raulerson, Christy Nowlen,
Robin Smith, Kelly Lowery and
Tricia Martin. Their T-shirts say
"60 miles and lots of smiles."
Over three days, walking 20
miles each day, they will com-
plete the 60-mile journey and
raise $12,500 for breast cancer
The women can be seen most
days pounding the pavement on
the walking track at Memorial
Park in Macclenny. They rack up
the treadmill miles at Anytime
Fitness and sometimes on their
lunch break, they walk the roads
around Fraser Memorial where
they work.
"People frequently stop and
ask us about what we're doing,"
said Ms. Martin, the group's
team leader. "When we tell them
they say, 'I think you're crazy, but
it sure is for a good cause. Keep
up the good work!'"
At the beginning of 2010, the
women decided to walk together
for the health benefits. Shortly af-
ter that, Ms. Nowlen came across
the website for the 3-Day walk.
Ms. Nowlen realized that each
woman in her walking group has
been affected by breast cancer,
either directly or indirectly. Here
was a way to actually do some-
thing about stopping it.
"We should do this," she
She then requested a media kit
and after watching a DVD about
the event walk, they all agreed
it was something they could do.
Must do.

Robin Smith, Tricia Martin, Kelly Lowery, Christy Nowlen and Cindy Raulerson join hands to fight breast cancer.

"There wasn't any question.
If you watch that DVD and don't
want to participate in this walk,
then there is something wrong
with you!" Ms Martin declared
last week when she and her team
stopped by The Press before go-
ing for their daily training.
They've been training for a
little over six months and already
the team can walk 20 miles in a
single day. At one point, they de-
cided to just go for it and do 20
miles on the track in Memorial
Park. They started at 7:00 am.
They saw all kinds of people
come and go and quite a few
birthday parties begin and end,
but they did it.
Training is still first and fore-
most, but the group has been
focused on fund raising as well.
Each woman must raise $2,300
for the event.
Other teams have been train-
ing and fund raising throughout
the last year. The Baker County

_Corner oF Sapp Rd. and CR 229,

gals are attempting to reach their
goal in only half the time.
They've been holding garage
and bake sales, raffling gift bas-
kets and soliciting private dona-
tions. A few corporate donations
have been trickling in and on
September 25, an all-day com-
munity event at Heritage Park
will benefit their effort.
Along the route of the 3-day
walk through Atlanta, the teams
will stop at stations every three
miles for water, snacks and medi-
cal attention if necessary.
At the end of each segment is
a camp, complete with pink two-
person pup tents where they will
spend the night. The ladies will
be given dinner and treated to
an evening of music and other
Why is participating in the
Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the
Cure walk so important to these
"Both of my grandmothers
passed away from breast can-

cer, one of whom had two aunts
pass from it. My entire life has
been shadowed by this. I have a
daughter and I want this to stop,"
said Ms. Martin.
"When we talk to women in
this community it is amazing
what we hear my mother, my
daughter, my aunt, my sister, my
friend everyone knows some-
one this disease has affected,"
said Ms. Nowlen.
The ladies also note that many
women in Baker County couldn't
afford certain health services
such as annual mammograms if
it weren't for funds provided by
the Susan G. Komen Founda-
"In this way we can help give
back to our community," they

The Baker High Wildcats will
be looking to start a lot faster on
Friday than they did against West
Nassau in the Kickoff Classic.
The varsity limped to a 7-3 win in
a penalty-strewn three quarters
of football.
Coach Ryan Sulkowski will
want to avoid those mental er-
rors when he hosts Crescent City
Friday at Memorial Stadium.
The Raiders made the playoffs
last season before losing to Trin-
ity Christian 42-10 in the first
But this is not the same Raider
team that BCHS beat 41-7 in the
first game of last season and then
shook it off to win all but one of
their remaining regular season
First year coach Quintin Lewis
is doing some serious rebuilding.
The Raiders were hit harder by
graduation than most teams.
They played with a very senior
heavy squad and are now paying
the price.
The Raiders lost 90 percent of

their offensive team to gradua-
tion and it tells, especially in the
running game.
"We have to fill a lot of holes,"
said Lewis. "We are looking at
starting a ninth grader at QB, and
a backfield with a combined total
of 75 carries between six guys."
Lewis does return some com-
petent receivers and plans to
throw the ball a little more than
the Raiders did last season. The
offensive line has some experi-
ence and Lewis thinks that with
good pass protection, the throw-
ing game could be "explosive."
Crescent City didn't get off to
a good start in its own classic,
however. They were shut out by
the Matanzas Pirates 10-0 away
from home.
Both the Raiders and the
Wildcats will want to correct
their mistakes and head into the
season with a win in game one
under their belts.
The Cats have the home field
advantage and that may be all
they need.

Coach's reaction

The Wildcats take the field for the Kick-off Classic against West Nassau August 27 with head coach Ryan Sulkowski.


Cats win classic on final drive

More balanced attack against West Nassau

The term Kickoff Classic is
usually a misnomer. There's not
much "classic" in it. It's a grind it
out, test the limits, see who can
perform situation when coaches
on both sides of the field get a
chance to evaluate what they
have and what they haven't. It's a
start of the year pre-test.
That was certainly the case
August 27 at a rain-soaked Me-
morial Stadium where the varsity
Wildcats scraped out a 7-3 win
over the West Nassau Warriors.
The capacity crowd braved
the rain and humidity to get its
first glimpse of Ryan Sulkowski's
high-flying pass offense. They got
some of it, but in fits and starts.
Pouring rain is not conducive to
the passing game.
Fans discovered that quar-
terbacks Jeremy Wannamaker
and Kendrick Sampson can both
throw the ball, and there are re-
ceivers who can catch it. They
also saw the running game, which
at least on Friday night, looked
like a work in progress.
They found out the Wildcats'
small but quick offensive line
is still learning to pass protect.
They saw that Wannamaker can
run over people when he is forced
to scramble and that Sampson
has nerves of steel.
They also had to scratch their
heads and wonder what it is
about West Nassau that makes
the Warriors such a hard team
to play. Whether it's the nature
of the classic or the nature of the
Warriors, scheduling West Nas-
sau as a kickoff opponent guar-
antees a rough, tough game.
It doesn't matter who the
head coach is whether it's Carl
West or Bobby Johns or Ryan

headache in a classic.
They always seem to give the
Wildcats trouble, and that's not a

bad thing.

It certainly was Friday night in
the rain and muck.
Here's my take on the team.
The passing game that we've
been hearing so much about is
Both Wannamaker and Samp-
son can air it out and Sampon's
arm strength is impressive.
The quarterbacks have a va-
riety of receivers from the rangy
Thomas Sirk and the quick Ken-
drick Singleton, all the way down
to sturdy fullback Ruben Jack-
The line still has a way to go.
West Nassau put a lot of pres-

nals and forced some scrambles.

demonstrated he could run the
ball with power when he left the

rarely got a chance to demon-
strate his speed outside of the
tackle box.
But the kicking game was im-
pressive. Wannamaker booted it
out of the end zone on the kickoff
and nailed a 35-yard extra point
with plenty of room to spare.
It's business as usual for the
defense and that's a good thing.
They held the Warriors without
a touchdown and kept West Nas-
sau out of the end zone. Dakimby
Hogan picked up where he left
off last year and Hunter Sullivan
and Malon Hadley made some
big plays.
Mental wrinkles still need
ironing out before Friday's regu-
lar season opener.
It was a preseason game and
you could tell from the number of
penalties that players were strug-
gling to reach the speed of a game
The Cats made the plays when
it counted.
There were some fourth down
conversions, and Sampson's ex-
citing pass to Sirk in the corner
of the end zone with two seconds
on the clock at the end of the first
half electrified the crowd, the
sidelines and the players on the

Coach Ryan Sulkowski's as-
sessment of Friday night's Kick-
off Classic was that it was a pre-
season game, pure and simple.
"It's a kickoff classic, that's
all you can say about it," said
Sulkowski, Baker High's first-
year football coach. "It was slop-
py, we made some mistakes, but
we also did some things pretty
well. These kind of games are
important in that theyjump start
your season. What really matters
is this Friday and we intend to
strap it on for Crescent City."
The Cats will meet the Raiders
for the second time in as many
years. Last season they pum-
meled Crescent City 47-7. The
Raiders went on to win 8 of 9
remaining games and make the
The Raiders have replaced
a lot of players from last year's
team (see related story). First
year coach Quintin Lewis ran the
defense for four years and knows
that he has a tough task on his
hands. He expects to start a fresh-
man quarterback and though
he has an experienced offensive
line, the team has weakness at
the running back position.
His experienced defense is
the team's bright spot and for
the Wildcats the same is true.
Though he was generally pleased
with the defensive performance,
there were some other elements
of the game that irritated the new
Wildcat head coach.
"We made some critical mis-
takes and some penalties that
hurt us. We have to protect the
football. Sometimes improve-
ment is as simple as the snap."


Sulkowski is determined that
the Cats "stay on schedule" and
continue to practice hard all
week long. "We fumbled at the
beginning of practice on Thurs-
day and did the same thing again
on Friday. Hopefully they'll get it
into their heads that you play like
you practice."
West Nassau is a difficult team
to play and they gave the Wild-
cats some difficulties.
Though he mentioned the
Trinity Conquerors, the week
two opponents and state runners
up, Sulkowski is working hard
to keep his players from looking
"I tell them that the Crescent
City game is the most important
game of the season because it is
the one we are playing this week,"
he said.
Expect to see some new wrin-
kles in the game with a variety
of pass patterns, including an
empty backfield.
Though the Cats will throw
the ball as much as necessary,
Sulkowski is also known for cul-
tivating looo-yard rushers. But
unlike other Wildcat teams of
the past, he has a different view
of what characterizes a running
game. Sulkowski is quick to point
out that he considers some of the
short dump passes to the running
backs tantamount to a running
He also expects the special
teams to play an important part
in the game. "We spend an hour
and 45 minutes a week work-
ing on special teams in practice.
That's probably more than any
other team in the state."
