Family members and caregivers having the knowl edge to implement something as simple as putting a baby on their back to sleep can make a huge difference. The tent cards, provided by the task force and the Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition of Jacksonville, were also dis September 12 at the monthly meeting of Healthy Baker, Inc., the local nonprofit striving to improve the quality of life and health of local residents. The task force operates as a subcommittee of Healthy Baker. The tent cards are apart of the task forces 2011-12 action plan, which was released that day to coincide with National Infant Mortality Month in September. percent of all infant deaths were found to be sleep-related, includ ing two of the four deaths last year, states the action plan. To reduce those incidences, the plan also calls for the health department to distribute safe sleep information in OB (obstet rics) bags given to new mothers receiving services there, with the materials being supplied by Healthy Start. The agencies are also partner ing to began a training program for new or soon-to-be new fa thers, which teaches safe sleep ing techniques as well as other parenting skills. The action plan targets six areas in all, including breast feeding, with various activities associated with each area, like addressing the breast feeding policies of the countys major employers. But much of the ongoing ef forts involve applying downward pressure on the countys high teen pregnancy rate, and particu larly repeat teen pregnancies. To that end, the task force in tends to review a faith-based cur riculum known as Our Whole Lives with local churches, con sider options for comprehensive sex education, including infor mation about contraception, to teen parents and implement a curriculum aimed at parents and improving their communication with teens about sex and pregnancy. The health department is also continuing an abstinence-based sex education curriculum for sev enth and eight graders this year. An abstinence-based high school sex ed curriculum has also been funded here through 2016 as part of a University of South Florida study [Editors note: See next weeks edition for further infor mation about the study]. Teen pregnancy will prove the most challenging topic to tackle, Ms. Crawford said. The varying opinions on sex education curriculum in our schools, religious views and moral beliefs all play a big part. Our goal is to decrease the teen pregnancy rate, cy. The question is how do we do this effectively. Lunch and learns with lo cal pediatricians are planned in 2012 to increase the number of moms who attend their six-week postpartum visit and funding will be sought for grief counseling to families who have experienced an infant or fetal death.

POSTMASTER: send address changes to The Baker County Press, P.O. Box 598, Macclenny, FL. 32063. With the Sesquicentennial coming up on September 24, Ive got a really fun story about the our county seats namesake, Capt. C.B. McClenny. The story was again collected by Gene Bar ber. Gene couldnt attest to its complete verac ity, but its one that the captain told over and over, so he at least claimed it was true. I read this story and immediately snatched it up for my drama production of the history of the county, Baker County, Fla. 1861-1961. It just has so much dramatic flair about it. It seems that during the Civil War, Capt. McClenny managed to get himself captured by the Yankees. Nobody knows for sure whether C.B. McClenny actually was a captain, but that is what he called himself and had every one else call him so Im inclined to think it probably wasnt a Col. Sanders situation. Capt. McClenny was quite a character. After they latched onto him, the Yankees promptly sent him north to Ft. Delaware, a notori ous Union prison camp. It wasnt nearly as bad as the Confederate camp at Andersonville, Georgia, but it was no picnic. Some 13,000 CSA troops were housed there on Pea Patch Island in the Delaware River. Many of them died. General Albin F. Schoepf was commandant of the prison, a sharp talking, red faced, sadistic type. The pris oners were fond of calling him General Ter ror. He lived up to his name. He patrolled the grounds with his bulldog Brutus and threw prisoners into the hole for the least offense. The hole was a well hole the size of a grave over which they would fasten a piece of tin. It got brutal ly hot in the hole and Capt. Mc Clenny seems very familiar with it. He was also very familiar with Brutus. The pit bull was vicious and took to wandering the camp at night and attacking prisoners if he took a shine to it. The gen eral doted on the dog and the prisoners hated Brutus nearly as much as the general. Prisoners lived cramped to gether with 13,000 in a space meant for 4,000. Disease was rampant, with smallpox, mea sles, dysentery and scurvy a con stant worry. At most times there were over 1,000 prisoners sick from one scourge or another. Food was scarce and what they got was poor quality. The biscuits were filled with worms and what little meat was scrawny or going green. The prisoners took to orga nizing a Rat Detail. The quickest among them chased the rats that were plentiful on the island and cooked them up to supplement their diet. It wasnt long before the rats became very scarce. Things could get particularly bad, and McClenny had numer ous run ins with the warden, who made frequent tours of the camp, berating the prisoners for being Secessionists and threatening them with Brutus. McClenny, a bit of a character who had a difficult time holding his tongue, was forever getting in trouble. After a particularly bad spell of punishment he de cided he wanted a little revenge on General Terror. He came up with a plan that was to make him something of a legend among the prisoners. McClenny convinced Charlie Burns, one of the Rat Detail, to loan him a fat rat he had caught over by where they buried the dead prisoners. Burns reluctantly agreed, but was worried that the captain would lose his rat. Late that night, McClenny, Burns and another prisoner named Frank Belton lay in wait. When Brutus made his nightly rounds, McClenny called him by name and held up the fat rat. I can picture it looking some thing like the scene in Pirates of the Caribbean when the prison ers are trying to get the keys from the dogs mouth. Brutus spotted the rat dan gling from McClennys fingers and came over. Belton jumped him and held his mouth shut while Burns hit him with a big rock. That night, McClenny and his friends had a tasty fricassee of pine needles, acorns and stewed Brutus. Tastes like chicken. Gen. Schoepf searched the camp high and low for his pet but never found a single trace of him. McClenny had his revenge.LETTER TO THE EDITOR ROBERT GERARD In the lead up to the 10-year anniver sary of the terrorist attack of 9-11, we the asked our followers on Facebook Septem ber 6, Do you feel the events of September 11, 2001 receive the attention they deserve, not enough, or too much? Heres what they had to say ...Louise Curtiss Smith: With the exclusion of any clergy, its going to be nothing more than a photo opportunity for Bloomberg! Shameful! Without God, we wouldnt be here today! Alyssa Nicole Fernandez: I think the media goes over board sometimes. I feel so sad for those who lost family and loved ones. My dad was on a ight to Tennessee that day, and I was scared out of my mind. I cant imagine that loss. But I think we should celebrate how far weve come from that day. Janet Rigney: This is a very sad day for everyone in America, more should be done on this day in history. They all said when it happened, never forget. In my view most did. I know I never will. As a New Yorker they took a part of me with the attack. God bless all those who lost and gave there lives on this day and our NYPD and NYFD and our service men and women for what they did afterwards. Jay Cannaday: Not enough of the truth and too much peripheral and ancillary stu gets reported. Mike De Baecke: I agree with Jay. Although its a very sad event and we should never ever forget that day and those that lost their lives and the loved ones left behind, I feel there is not enough of the truth of what really happended. Buddy Dugger: I personally feel a lot of people do not remember. We should know what led up to this attack on our people and nation. Did passive attitudes lead up to this from a lack of will to protect our nation and more the concerns of not oending other nations from acting before the attacks happened? Today, could we be looking at a repeat in history as with the attacks on Pearl Harbor from these same passive atti tudes before WWII, with the buildup of Chinas Navy, and the buildup of China, Russia and North Korea jointly building their armed forces? Jay Cannaday: They need to show the clips of the planes hitting the towers daily and remind Americans who hijacked those planes. Christopher Apromollo: I think that what is done is ade quate in memory, respect and honor to those who willingly and unwill ingly gave their lives on September 11. We as a country should never for get the events that occurred that day as I believe it brings us a lot closer and reminds us all that we are in fact the greatest country in the world.Then, after we posted a photo from ABC News of a waterfall at the Ground Zero memorial that formed the shape of a cross, we posted, There has been so much con troversy over Christian symbolism, particu larly the cross being present at the site the 9/11 memorial. Heres a photo during this mornings television coverage of the ser vice. Look what appeared on the surface of the water in one of the waterfalls that now mark where the Twin Towers used to stand a cross. Now, thats interesting. It sparked the following comments:Kimberly Atwood: God is much bigger than anything we can imagine. This is proof that God is there and we are the better for it! Katherine Tidwell: It just goes to show that God is there,even when some dont want him to be! PJ Lefebvre III: I guess people will see what they want to believe. Ashley Marie Nicholson: A cross should be there. And all the atheists out there spend money I bet, and that says in God we trust. I bet they dont raise hell about mon ey. Aaron Scott: If you dont like Christianity in the public arena, try this new thing they call tolerance. Its a two-way street, and I, for one, am tired of doing all the yielding. Barbara Blackshear Awesome. Lorie Williams: Very interesting, but not surpris ing! God will make Himself known!Join The Press at Facebook.com.

Deputy Combs resumed shift work after the accident, pending the investigation.Dear Editor:In the times we live in today too often unnoticed are those who steadily work for inspiration, mentoring, righteousness and goodwill to the community. Bob Gerard still inspires today as he did years ago for the students of our county by way of a column in our local paper, a man of his family and community that he often writes of. Why he has tery. Another example is our long time (county) Judge Joseph Wil liams. He makes the extra effort and stands by his word and deci sions. And with community growth generally comes an increase of crime as well. The safety of our county in comparison to our neighboring ones is a testament to our sheriff and his deputies, as well as the efforts made by per sons like assistant state attorney Josh Kuhlmann. Recently, we had the Nation al Night Out event. Perhaps we should have a County Day Out tives can be acknowledged and thanked for their efforts over the years. We can claim pride in Baker County. David Yale Macclennyr rfnSeveral people, two of them involved as organizers, com mented the past week that no one seems to know about the upcom ing Sesquicentennial Celebration on September 24. Maybe thats because so few of us attempt to pronounce the word (Cess-kwa-centennial) and thus have pushed the one-day event back in the nether regions of our consciousness. No, its not a celebration of some primitive era when the di nosaurs roamed. It means Baker County is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its founding in April, 1861, a month when there wasnt much going on except, oh, for the shelling of Fort Sum ter and the start of the Civil War. Talk about being overshad owed by events. Its on par with choosing December 7, 1941 (or 9/11 for that matter) as your wed ding day. Why arent people talking about the Sesquicentennial? I submit because its still two weeks off, and since its a oneday event people just arent pay ing any attention yet. Thats what happens when one competes in a world with a million diversions. Its not like were all living on Cracker farms and cant wait to hitch up the buckboard and ride on into town for the event of the year. For those who arent from here, a phrase that used to car ry with it a stigma, maybe they arent motivated to get excit ed about the Sesquicentennial because their folks are from points distant. That shouldnt matter; the county still has a history every place does and history in any form should be of interest to citi zens of any locale. You dont have to become a walking encyclope dia of Baker Countys history, but you should be at least mildly cu rious. Plus, its a celebration, with closed off streets, speeches, a street dance, a days agenda of live entertainment. For those who complain theres nothing to do here on weekends, no rea son to come downtown anytime, heres a reason. A small but dedicated group of people, some with deep roots here, some not so deep, has worked hard to put together the celebration that was wisely can celled from earlier this year. Their efforts will pay off. People will show up, and itll be worth their while and yours.tffb rf bakercountypress.com

Thompson for an explanation. Mr. Thompson said he was disappointed the callers couldnt see past the red ambulance with the Jacksonville Fire Rescue emblem and recognize it was still local paramedics and EMTs in uniforms with the Baker County seal helping them. Rescue 36, the primary ambulance stationed in Macclenny, its back-up unit, Rescue 32, and Rescue 33, the transport unit that shuttles patients from medical facilities here to those in Jacksonville, all broke down at the same time. EMS director David Richardson said Rescue 36 busted a hose and Rescue 32 suffered from a malfunctioning air bag, both of which were repaired and back in service the following day. Rescue 33, the transport unit with more than 200,000 miles on it, broke a crankshaft, making the engine worthless, he said. The director made inquiries to the units manufacturer, Chevrolet, about trading in the trucks box, the rear section that carries patients, but had not received a response as of September 12. It could be stripped for replacement parts, said Mr. Richardson. We should get something out of it, but I cant put a dollar amount on it yet. The figure he did have was the countys bill for repairs and some $30,000 this year. Mr. Richardson said most of the work is completed by Miracle Automotive and Truck Service Center of Macclenny, but Gear & Wheel Mobile Repair on N. SR 121 and other mechanics in Jacksonville do the more specialized repairs on occasion. Yeah, [Miracle] runs into some problems from time to time, but not so much that we dont want to use them, he said, adding that the shop often does minor service or diagnostic work like battery checks at no charge. They do several little things like that ... Its just a good relationship. They work nights and weekends to get the units back to us. You dont get that in town. The director also rejected any notion that the county is not properly maintaining its rescue units. Weve never, ever neglected our vehicles, said Mr. Richardson. We try to save as much money for the county as we can, but not at the detriment of the public. The maximum life of a rescue unit is generally about 200,000 miles, he said. The two new units scheduled for delivery in November are manufactured by Dodge. The purchase will cost the county $282,518, or $141,259 each. From page 1 nience store. They apparently attempted to enter other houses in the neighborhood but were thwarted when they discovered the addresses were occupied. In a second sentencing that followed a no contest plea, Kyle Williamson of Glen St. Mary drew a two-year probation with night curfew for trafficking in stolen property and grand theft. The defendant, 28, and two codefendants were arrested for stealing property valued at $2360 from an unoccupied residence off CR 120 in the north county in May and June of this year. Some of the items were recovered from Scrappy Pappys salvage yard near Macclenny where the defendants had sold them. Judge Rosier also ordered Mr. Williamson to do 100 hours of community service and enroll as a full time student or get a job as conditions of probation. From page 1 rJOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comWith no one from the public attending the Baker County ing on its 2011-12 budget and property tax rate, three commisto vote their approval. Commissioners Jimmy Anderson and Adam Giddens were not present for the hearing. Weve been through this four miliar with the intricacies of the budget, county manager C.J. Thompson told the board while presenting an overview of the $27.4-million spending plan for This is pretty much a highlevel overview, he said. It showed the proposed property tax, or millage, rate unrate of $7.1459 per $1000 of taxable property value. At the proposed rate, a home with a taxable value of $100,000 would pay $714.59 in county property taxes, excluding school district, Macclenny, hospital and water management district levies. Mr. Thompsons overview also noted the expected dip into reserves to balance the budget at $2.2 million, compared to $1.7 million this year. The total budget, however, is down some $4.6 million, or 14 percent. The overview also included a breakdown of department budgets and each departments percentage change from last year. Seventeen of the countys 24 departments reduced their anticipated spending by as little as .37 percent (Supervisor of Elections) to as much as 51.66 percent (grants). The latter cut as well as a 36.33 percent drop in the planning and zoning departments budget came as a result of two layoffs announced in early August. The majority are downward trends, said Mr. Thompson. Some increases in expected spending were explained in the documents footnotes, including about $35,000 in the solid waste department for a new roll-off truck, $477,868 in corrections from a change in the number of inmates presumed for budgeting purposes and $9000 for animal control from the county assuming service in the City of Macclenny. Mr. Thompson said the latter increase will be offset, however, by revenue from the city. proval of the budget and millage rate is scheduled for September 19 at 5:01 pm.BAKER COUNTY COMMISSIONrfffA luncheon is set for this Thursday, September 15 at noon to observe the name change of Comprehensive Community Services to The ARC of North Florida.

Demetria Dinkens, 28, allegedly first went to the residence of Miquelle Jones, 35, on Robinson Lane in Olustee where the two argued and engaged in a physical confrontation. Ms. Jones told Deputy Chris Walker that Ms. Dinkins returned a short time later, forced her way into the front door and brandished the knife, which she then used to slit four tires on Ms. Jones 1993 Buick parked outside. Deputy Walker interviewed the accused at her home on Derek Arline Rd. and she admitted the allegations, saying she returned to Ms. Jones address to do her damage. She was booked for aggravated assault, battery and in a subsequent criminal complaint, aggravated battery because Ms. Jones is pregnant and her assailant was aware of it. The victims two children, ages 3 and 6, were present during the incident. In another assault complaint, Allen Yonn, 31, of Macclenny is accused of threatening landlord Jeffrey Lucas, 50, of Glen St. Mary during a confrontation at a residence on Grant St. the afternoon of September 7. Mr. Lucas told Deputy Brad Dougherty he went to the property about 5:25 to collect past due rent, and Mr. Yonn screamed and cursed at him before leveling threats against him and his property. He also noted that the tenant was bleeding from the bridge of his nose and appeared to be under the influence. That was the same inference drawn by Deputy Jared Satterwhite when he visited Mr. Yonn shortly after and noted other scratches and cuts on his person. Police also talked to his livein girlfriend, who had a facial bruise. The couple insisted the cuts and bruises were from cutting up a tree earlier. was attacked while at the Macclenny Park with his brother, age 16, the evening of September 7.

Victor Crow, 39, owns property on the east side of 125 nearby, and allegedly took an excavator and front end loader over the Labor Day holiday. He is also charged with theft of diesel worth $300 in addition to the estimated $2400 damage to the machinery. Mr. Crow told Deputy Tony Norman he obtained permission from a supervisor with K and L Land Clearing of St. Augustine to move the excavator if it obstructed the entrance to his property. He said the contractor had pushed trees onto his property and he used the front end loader to remove them from trees situated on raised platforms. In the process, the loader bogged down and he then used the excavator to push it free. Mr. Crow is employed by another contractor on the project. Daniel Duncan, the supervisor for the land clearer, said a battery box, tail lights, front fenders and a handrail were damaged. The equipment belongs to NEFF Rentals of Jacksonville. In other cases reported to the sheriffs department the past week, an ex-boyfriend was named in a complaint for burglary and theft at the residence of Lajoya Evans between September 8-10 while she was away. Ms. Evans told Deputy Patrick McGauley she returned to her residence on Thomas Sweat Rd. in Sanderson and found the front door had been forced open and an estimated $500 in clothing taken. She named Jarius Holcomb, 30, of Jacksonville as the likely suspect. Deputy McGauley learned from Yellow Cab in Jacksonville, the suspects employer, that the GPS system on his cab indicated it was at the residence for about an hour the evening of September 8. The complaint also alleges trespass and criminal mischief for the door damage. ey in north Baker County named one of the youthful residents in a complaint alleging he vandalized the counselors 2005 Chrysler the morning of September 9.

ursday, September 15, 2011 T B C P Page 7 KELLEY LANNIGAN FEATURES features@bakercountypress.comBaker County has six desig nated emergency shelters, all lo cated at local schools, which can accommodate people who evacu disaster. But what about pets? Can they come too? The county, at present, does not have a pet-friendly shelter. However, according to Adam Faircloth, director of the Emer gency Management Division of the near future the answer to that question should be yes. Identifying and designating one of the six emergency shelter facilities as a pet-friendly shelter was a topic of discussion at the Local Mitigation Strategy Task Force meeting September 12. Its not a state mandate, but the Florida Comprehensive Emergency Management Plans section on sheltering cites the Florida statute that strongly urg es all counties to establish one or more designated emergency shelters as pet-friendly, said Mr. Faircloth. And its something of a requisite if an agency or entity accepts Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, funding. In the past, the countys emer gency management plan has uti lized the services of Baker County Animal Control to house animals during situations involving evac uation. There has been an agreement between the two entities to ac commodate larger animals like livestock, said Mr. Faircloth. For example, when Hurricane Fay came through the county, horses were evacuated to the fairgrounds, which is generally a high and dry area. That agree ment will continue. According to Mr. Faircloth, the ongoing process of designat ing a shelter will include input from the school district and the task force anticipates feedback and suggestions from Denny Wells, the school districts direc tor of facilities and maintenance. Once a location has been set modation will need to be decided. For instance, will people and pets be sheltered together? Would pets be housed separate ly? Or would pets be housed sep arately, but in the same facility? That is certainly something that will take some consider ation, Mr. Faircloth said, as some people have allergic reac tions to animals. Will the shelter provide food and water for pets and for how long? Our thinking is that in the midst of a crisis like a hurricane thinking of getting himself and the pet to safety and not stop to pack supplies, said Mr. Faircloth. Its possible the shelter could provide food and water temporarily, especially during the first 24to 36-hour time frame. Any future pet-friendly shelter will likely follow basic guidelines used for similar shelters already established in other counties such as the need for pet owners to show proof of registration and vaccination before pets can be ac commodated. Owners will also be respon sible for the care of the animal while at the shelter and pets will need to be properly crated ac cording to the type of animal. The type of pets that can be housed, thats another thing that will need to be decided, said Mr. Faircloth. The majority of pet owners have dogs and cats, but some more exotic species. What if a pet owner showed up with a llama? to deal with something like that through time and experience, he said. Although all of Floridas coun ties dont yet have pet-friendly shelters in place, the number of such facilities is growing. Floridas statute on accommo dating people with pets at emer gency shelters has its origins in the Pets Evacuation and Trans portation Standards Act of 2006, which was signed following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. At that time, statistics showed that given a choice between their own personal safety or abandon ber of people chose to risk their lives in order to remain with their pets. JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA new grant to the school dis tricts Career and Adult Educa tion department is expanding lit eracy and GED classes at Baker Correctional Institute and the county jail. The grant, administered by the Florida Department of Cor give inmates serving time at BCIs work camp an opportu nity to sharpen their reading and writing skills and obtain the equivalent of a high school di ploma. The $51,665 award from the federal governments Adult and Family Literacy Corrections Project will also allow the district to offer education programs dur ing the summer months at the county jail. The programs have been of fered there during the fall and spring for several years. The school board approved the grant agreement with the Florida Department of Correc tions during its regular meeting the evening of September 6. The education programs at the prison near Olustee have ex isted for some time, but they take place during the day when work camp inmates are in northeast Florida counties picking up trash or landscaping right-of-ways. The grant will pay for a teacher in the evenings when those prison ers can attend. There are approximately 220 inmates at the work camp in need of a high school diploma and within three years of release to communities in the region, said Ann Watts, director of the Career and Adult Education, in an August 22 letter to Superin tendent Sherrie Raulerson. For the last year, BCI has been the regions designated re-entry prison, a facility that provides ed ucation, vocational training and behavioral counseling to inmates in the lead up to their release into nearby counties. The grant will fund two parttime teaching positions for 10 hours a week at $24.90 per hour for 42 weeks, plus supplies, equipment and teacher training. At the county jail, 73 percent of federal inmates and 49 percent of local inmates dont have high school diplomas, according to a letter from Sheriff Joey Dobson in support of the grant. Ann Watts has done a great job for the school district and were pleased theyre working with us to educate our inmates, he said this week by phone. We think it will make a big difference worthwhile program. BCIs new warden Chris Southerland, who assumed the post last April, is also pleased to partner with the school district. She said only 60 percent of the 285 work camp prisoners hold high school diplomas. Its huge, said Ms. Souther land. They can work during the day and work on getting their GED at night. It can only help for when they go home. I would like for everybody to have a GED before they go home. This part nership is just a win-win for the institution, the inmates and the public.

Smoke from multiple wildres burning in the region blanketed Baker County periodically throughout the week. Florida Division of Forestry spokesman Kurt Wisner said that atmospheric conditions kept the smoke low to the ground, particularly in the morning before temperatures begin to rise. These conditions usually improve as the day warms, he said. Mr. Wisner at tributed most of the smoke early this week to the resurgent Honey Prairie Fire in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia. Inside Baker County, the so-called Road 205 Fire encompassed some 138 acres as of September 13 and the Road 72 Fire about 91 acres. Mr. Wisner said both remained within re lines. There is no signicant rain forecast for our area and conditions are very dry once again, said Mr. Wisner. We are seeing a signicant amount of re-burn in areas of re which had been contained. This is caused by fresh fuels falling onto still-hot areas. He urged residents to exercise caution when burning outdoors due to the dry conditions. rfnrtb Interested in Girl Scouting?

A citizens advisory task force will review all applications for funding assistance and make recommendations for appropriating the grant money after applicants have been screened to ensure they meet eligibility requirements, including income guidelines, the city manager said. Mayor Gary Dopson credited Floridas Community Development Block Grant program with helping clean up rundown properties and improve the appearance of neighborhoods in decline for years. It has really, really helped bring blighted areas up to standards, he said. The $700,000 grant boosted the citys proposed budget for next year to $7,300,706, including $3,940,993 for the general nicipal services except water and sewer utilities. Except for city officials and one newspaper reporter, nobody else attended this weeks public hearing on the budget and proposed property tax rate, which is the same as last years 3.60 mills, or $3.60 per $1,000 of taxable property value. Maintaining the current tax rate actually will result in a 3.74 percent tax reduction because of declining property values countywide. The city could have elected to go with a rolled-back rate of 3.7397 mills, which would have generated the same revenue as last year, but commissioners decided against it. The tax bill on a home with a taxable value of $150,000, after deducting the $50,000 in homestead exemptions, would be $360, in addition to levies by the county, the school district and other taxing authorities. begin at 6 pm on September 26. ber 1.

Although there have not been any reported cases of human or veteri nary cases of mosquito-borne illness in Baker County in 2011, 12 cases of human West Nile virus have been reported in Jacksonville and have the potential to occur here, said Terry Graham, the countys environ mental health director. While the director is not issuing a mosquito-borne illness alert or advisory at this time, he said residents should still take precautions by removing any standing water that could support mosquito larvae. I go to a lot of properties for inspections and things and see a lot of mosquito larvae in bird baths, pet water bowls and tire swings, Mr. Graham said. The worst I ever saw ... was an outdoor bathtub half full. There must have been tens of thousands of mosquito larvae in there. Dressing in clothes that cover arms and legs and wearing socks and shoes also minimize the chance of mosquito bites. Using a repellent which contains DEET is very important, said Mr. Graham. Avoiding the outdoors during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active, is recommended as well.

JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBCHS students joined St. Johns River Water Management District volunteers to clean up the Steel Bridge Road boat ramp on the St. Marys River Septem ber 10. Clean-ups are great because they bring so many groups to gether, said Cheryl Bell-Abbott, the districts outreach contractor for Baker and Duval counties. Twenty-one volunteers in all, including another outreach worker for Nassau and Duval counties, Felicia Boyd, picked up beer bottles, cigarette butts and other trash from the shoreline, trails and right-of-ways around the boat ramp and park area. Inmate crews had recently picked up litter inside the park, 17 garbage bags of assorted re fuse, including a syringe, lawn chair, stop sign, clothing and ar madillo skeleton. District volunteers Anne Co rum of Callahan and Matt Bum gardner, 17, a student at Ed White High School in Jackson ville, uncovered the days most unusual object, a vehicle bumper. It kind of blended into the dirt and bushes, said Ms. Co rum. That was definitely the strangest thing we found. Thats something that usually doesnt show up by the river. Ms. Bell-Abbott said she con tacted teacher Stephanie Wheel er at the high school, who in turn solicited volunteers at the cam pus. She organized everything, said Ms. Bell-Abbott. She was fantastic. Cross country coach Chris Ar moreda, JROTC (Junior Reserve sponsor Liz Law-Wallace, art teacher Tiffany Armoreda and their students were among the high schools volunteers. It only took a couple of hours, but the good feeling of having done something to make a dif ference will last a long time, said Ms. Law-Wallace. They started at 8 am and left the park pristine about 10:30 am. It was a very pretty place to clean up, Ms. Corum said.PHOTOS COURTESY OF ST.

ursday, September 15, 2011 T B C P Page 15Heres a sports item I just dont understand. Major League Baseball (MLB) denied the New York Mets request to wear special baseball caps on 9/11. The Mets wanted to wear caps honoring the fire department, police and port authority. MLB denied the request, saying it wanted to keep uniform policy consistent throughout all the teams. I bet if they had polled all the teams not a single one would have complained. In fact, I wouldnt have been at all surprised if the other teams would have wanted to wear the caps themselves. Sometimes people just dont have an iota of common sense. for Gator fans. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weiss was quoted as saying that he had never coached anyone as fast as Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey. That included his stint in the NFL. They are pretty quick fellas. bled Friday nights Wildcat football game. After getting up in the early going, the Tennessee Titans came back to nearly upset the Jags. Just like on Friday night, it took a late interception to seal the win. I wonder if what we saw on Sunday is going to be the trend for the season for the Jaguars. The game looked like it could have been played in 1958 with a dominant running game the focus of the play. I think it was pretty smart for Jack Del Rio to keep the onus of the game off new quarterback Luke McCowns shoulders. Del Rio seems to be letting McCown grow into the starting role and he looked pretty good with the throws he did make. He only had one or two errant tosses, and many of the drops were just that. They hit the receivers in the hands and they dropped them. the release of David Garrard. I liked Garrard and thought he was a pretty good quarterback. I also believed a lot of Garrards problems stemmed from having a mediocre receiving corps. He was never going to be a marquee quarterback like Peyton Manning or Aaron Rodgers. But then, he didnt have Reggie Wayne or Donald Driver like they have. Colts arent the same team without him. The 34-7 loss to Houston demonstrates that the team is built around Mannings skills. Kerry Collins is a veteran but he isnt Manning. lins, allow me to grumble. I didnt attend the Jaguars game in person on Sunday for the sheer reason that I have never been to a Titans game that the Jaguars won. The last one I attended, the Jaguars went up big and Jeff Fisher benched Vince Young in favor of Collins. Collins promptly came back and won the game. As the varsity football Wildcats collected their second straight win over ranked opposition, heres a look at how their opponents fared. Ahmad Fullwood scored two touchdowns and intercepted a pass to lead Bishop Kenny to a 28-14 win over Fletcher. The Crusaders held the Senators to 182 yards total offense.

Page 16 T B C P ursday, September 15, 2011 BOB GERARD | SPORTS It was definitely a tale of two football halves on Friday night at Memorial Stadium as the Baker High Wildcats ran up a 31-7 lead in the first half and then clawed their way to a 31-28 win over the defending state champion Trinity Conquerors. The win brings the Cats to 2-0 against ranked opponents to start the season. It was nearly impossible to shoe-horn another fan into the stadium September 9 as BCHS faced off against the #4 ranked Conquerors. Both teams were primed and ready for the game. BCHS beat Trinity on the road last fall and the visitors wanted desperately to return the favor. From the start, however, it looked like it might be a cakewalk for Baker High. Everything the Cats tried seemed to work. Trini ty had obviously prepared for the passing game, and instead Coach Ryan Sulkowski hit them in the mouth with the running game. Where Thomas Sirk and Ken drick Singleton connected in the 34-6 win over Atlanta West minster, on Friday Sirk used his legs to run up, over, around and through the Conquerors in the first half. The Wildcat defense came out of the chute fired up and aided by the penalties that plagued Trinity all night long, shutting down the Conquerors. The Wildcats moved the ball easily, with Sirk and Fa lon Lee cracking off 15-yard runs. Sirk was a little off all night throwing the ball and overshot his receivers on the first posses sion. But his legs made up for it as BCHS drove to the 19-yard line before the drive stalled. Normal ly reliable Jeremy Wannamaker pulled the ball wide to keep the game scoreless. But the Cats shut down Trin ity in two more possessions and Sirk connected with Singleton in the corner of the end zone mid way through the first quarter for a 7-0 score. That opened the floodgates. Freshman CeCe Jefferson caused a fumble on the kick off and the Wildcats got the ball back deep in Trinity territory at the 20-yard line. Sirk followed Brandon Grey and Jordan Parker to the 5 and three plays later ran it in for the 14-0 lead. Despite sacks from Wanna maker and Jefferson, quarter back Oshay Carter found Nick Washington to cut the lead to a touchdown at the start of the sec ond quarter. Wannamaker, who had touched the ball very little in the first game and in the first period, made the most of his carry on the next BCHS possession, break ing free for a 52-yard touchdown run. The Cats added to the lead a couple of minutes later when Jar ed Lee picked off an errant Carter pass to give BCHS the ball at the 44-yard line. Sirk kept the ball on the first snap from center and out raced the defense for a 56-yard score and a 28-7 lead. The Wildcats got the ball right back when Jefferson forced an other fumble on the kickoff at the Trinity 16. The drive went nowhere, but Wannamaker con verted a 28-yard field goal to put BCHS up 28-7. Trinity gave a taste of what was to come in the second half when Lynn Griffin scored on a run from the Wildcat forma tion where the running back takes a direct snap from center. Much of Fridays Wildcat game was a mirror image of the Jaguar/Titans game on Sunday. In the first drive of the second half, BCHS marched all the way to the Trinity 5-yard line before the drive stalled and Trinity got the ball back on an interception in the end zone. From then on it was all Con querors. You dont get to be state cham pions by lying down and playing dead, and the stop revitalized the visitors. They found a hole in the Cat defense with the Wild cat formation and ran it again and again throughout the half for good yardage. Marvel Taylor got the first score on a 10-yard run and Nick Washington a second with 2:15 left in the game. The Conquerors went for two and got it to narrow the game to a field goal at 31-28. Everyone in the stadium knew to expect the on-side kick except, it seemed, the officials. The ball bounced off a Trinity player be fore it went 10 yards but the of ficials gave the ball to the Conquerors. The miscue fired up the BCHS defense. Kyle Anderson sacked Carter, and with the clock run ning Carter rolled out and threw the ball down field. Falon Lee stepped in front of the intended receiver and pulled in the inter ception to save the game for the Wildcats. Sirk finished with 213 yards on 16 carries. Jefferson had an outstanding game with a pair of fumble recoveries and 2 sacks. The Cats have an open date this Friday before opening their district play on the road versus Clay County, a 34-27 winner over Ridgeview last weekend.BOB GERARD | SPORTS Amazing what a couple of wins can do. After defeating state champion Trinity Christian 3128 on Friday and Georgias #5 team Westminster the week be fore, the Wildcats shot up in the power polls. The Cats are ranked #2 in the state in the power polls in their classification. They are ranked #12 in all classifications and Max Preps ranks them #405 nationally, or in the top 5 percent in the country. Coach Ryan Sulkowski was also named Coach of the Week. Not too shabby. But dont look for Sulkowski to rest on his laurels. He knows that it will all go away just that fast if the Wildcats lose to Clay County next week in Green Cove Springs. You dont win state titles with power rankings, said Sulkowski. You do it by winning games. The Wildcats found out a lot about themselves during the Trinity game. They also found out that state champions dont give up, even when they are trail ing by 24 points. Trinity came back to shut out the Cats in the second half, some thing that Sulkowski attributes to Trinity knowing how to win, and to fitness. We literally scored too quick ly in the first half. That meant our defense was out there all the time. By the second half our guys were gassed, he said. Sulkowski traces the Trin ity comeback to its touchdown with the Cats up 21-13. If they hadnt have scored that touchdown right before the half, they wouldnt have been in the game, said the coach. But they did score, and that along with a blown assignment inside the 10 yard line that cost the Wildcats a score, gave Trin ity the momentum it needed to make a game of it. They showed that they knew how to overcome adversity, but so did we. We made the plays when we had to, particularly Fa lon Lees interception at the end of the game. Lees pick off of an Oshay Carter pass sealed the win for BCHS, said Sulkowski. Lee was one of many stand outs for the Wildcats. Thomas Sirk showed his rushing ability, something that didnt come as a surprise to his coach. It was in the game plan, he said. If a team focuses on your passing game we go with the run, and it looked like Trinity planned to defend against the pass. Though there were a lot of de fensive standouts, freshman CC Jefferson had an outstanding game. Hes had five sacks in two games and the record is 12. If he keeps it up he can have the school record, Sulkowski said. One of the freshmans ma jor advantages besides his 6 250-pound frame is his willing ness to be coached. From the first day of pads we knew he was a special guy, said Sulkowski. We keep harping on imagine where youll be if you keep working imagine where you could be in four years. The Cats came out of the titan ic battle with no major injuries and have two weeks to get their energy back. We have to refocus for Clay. Its a district game theyre the ones that count. You dont win those and you dont go to the playoffs, he said. Power polls and rankings aside, that is where Ryan Sulkowski and the Wildcats want to be. 11 Hardees Food Systems, Inc. 11 Santa Barbara Restaurant Group, Inc. All rights reserved.
