rrfntbrfbfrfrr 82nd Year, Vol. 30 Winner of 7 state awards for journalism excellence in 2010 BY KELLEY LANNIGAN FEATURES features@bakercountypress.comThe middle schools Beta Club was one of the many local organizations collecting and distributing food donations for local residents who might be feeling the economic squeeze this holiday season. The Beta Club is an academic organization for students with excellent grades. Club members also involve themselves in humanitarian and school pride endeavors. Its tough for many people right now, Beta Club secretary Larry Morris said. Maybe they had a job but have lost it. This helps ease the burden a little for families during Thanksgiving. Each year the club sponsors a holiday food drive that also functions as a competition. The class from each grade level collecting the most donations is rewarded with a pizza party. Classes at the middle school began collecting non-perishable food items as early as the beginning of the school year and continued through November 17. Donations came from students, parents, teachers and some area sponsors such as the Walmart Distribution Center, which this year gave 348 of the 2000 cans of food collected and a dozen frozen turkeys. Beta Club members helped sort food and created holiday baskets for selected recipients in need. Each basket also consugar for preparing other dishes. Leftover food items were passed on to the Samaritan food bank on US 90. Club members say they believe the food drive is a worthwhile project. Its important to be involved, Brook Chambers, the clubs vice president, said. Some people just dont have the food they need and you feel bad for them and just want to help, said club treasurer Rachel Price. When you see their smiles, you get a good feeling, added Colton Yeager, who serves as the clubs chaplain. Club president Mary Elledge said, Its good to be able to help out less fortunate families. And we had fun doing it. Food drives were held at all the countys schools this year lies and others to help the community as a whole. Keller Intermediate Schools students collected 2251 nonperishable food items, which Amy Stavley, guidance secretary, said was the most collected in the six years shes been there. The drive took place between October 31 and November 10. The food was donated to the Samaritan food bank. At Macclenny Elementary, a two-week canned food drive beneedy families with students at the school. A Glen St. Mary teen remains in critical condition at Wolfson Childrens Hospital in Jacksonville, likely the result of ingesting alcohol at a Macclenny residence the evening of November 17. The girl, 14, and a student at Baker County Middle School, was flown by helicopter to Jacksonville later that evening after she became ill at her mothers south Glen residence and stopped breathing. Earlier, she and three other juvenile age acquaintances including her brother, age 16, had gone to the residence of James Harmon, 23, on Barber Circle in south Macclenny.

They were arrested April 27, 2011, and both men have criminal histories involving drug sales. Mr. Townsend served four years 1999, according to Florida Department of Correction records. He was also found guilty of DUI in 1991 and disorderly intoxication in 1995, Baker County court records show. Mr. Hardenbrook pleaded guilty in 2001 to multiple counts of conspiracy to sell marijuana Columbia County in 1999. The federal charges come as a result of a year-long ingator Randy Crews, a member of the Jacksonville DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] task force. Sheriff Joey Dobson and Inv. Crews were joined by the DEAs Assistant Special Agent Charge Cam Strahm and Robert E. ONeill, US Attorney for the Middle District of Florida, for a press conference November 16 at the sheriffs complex north of Macclenny. They announced that six suspects in the drug ring, including Mr. Townsend, who they described as a cocaine distributor, had pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge. Inv. Crews said the case began with information that Mr. Townsend was involved in surveillance, which directed authorities to other suspects allegedly involved with moving an estimated 160 kilograms of Mexican cocaine from Texas to Jacksonville between April 2010 and April 2011. alleged drug suppliers Carlos Cordero, 65, and Maria Christina Martinez, 52, both of Houston, Texas; Steven Hoskins, 39, of Jacksonville, the alleged buyer of the drugs, and Edwin McDonald, 54, of Pierce County, GA, the alleged courier. The conspiracy resulted in over $4 million in drug proMr. Cordero, Mr. Townsend and Mr. Hoskins, each of whom have prior federal drug convictions, face sentences of 20 years to life in federal prison. Mr. McDonald and Ms. Martinez face sentences of 10 years to life in federal prison.

POSTMASTER: send address changes to The Baker County Press, P.O. Box 598, Macclenny, FL. 32063. Most people would like to be remembered for something positive. Such is the case with Emily Taber, who died this week just short of her 100th birthday. Surely she was aware she would be remembered by Baker County mostly for her ef forts to bring a li brary to what was, well, a libraryless community. A Baker County commission de cades ago did just that, naming the countys library in the old courthouse for Mrs. Taber. She once said what mattered most to her wasnt the fact that her name was attached to the library, but that Baker County had dedicated an historic building that housed a library. She truly believed that, but those who knew her believe she was quite appre ciative of the honor nonetheless. An avid reader until later years when even audio books didnt do the trick as her hearing failed after her eyesight, she told and retold how she (and a few others) got motivated to do something about the lack of a public library here. She was rebuffed by individuals who could have made it hap pen using private funds, yet sup ported by others. Ultimately, her persistence paid off with a mod est, quite modest, beginning in rented space on College Ave. in Macclenny. That initial collection of donated books stayed mostly modest, and the presence of a county library remained under stated until it was moved upstairs in the old courthouse on McIver St. Mrs. Taber continued to play an active role as the library grew partment moved out and, with the help of the late Peggy McCol lum, who took on the role of li brarian and repersistent, a combination of grants, public and private money funded an exten sive renovation. The Taber Li brary, now with a recent addition to the first floor, is an ideal use for the posing old court house building a ends. And it all started with Mrs. Taber. Those of us who knew Emily Taber when sever al of our young families resided on the Glen St. Mary Nursery grounds where she reveled in her role as matriarch in the 1970s re member her as having the ideal personality for that role. ly loyal to her beloved George (the late George Taber Jr.); ma ternal, she was, in another role as substitute mother for those of us who found ourselves in Baker County, a new home far from our homes. She was no slouch on the tennis court, either. Futurists predict that freestanding libraries will go the way of the horse and buggy now that printed information is delivered electronically. Maybe so, though its hard to fathom a world where hard bound books arent avail able somewhere. The Internet and Kindle werent around when Mrs. Taber saw the need for a library in Bak er County a half-century ago. Back then it was books, shelving, cataloging and bricks and mortar. The need was there and Emily ing that need. She made a differ ence. Theres been push this year to Shop Small this Christmas and support local businesses who often oer American-made products and services, instead of those coming from outside the US. We asked our Facebook followers November 18, What are some ideas you can oer local residents so they can support Baker County-based businesses? Heres what they had to say ...Leslie Wahlstrom Teeter: Buy lawn service for a family or pay to have a family members drive way sealed or their house pressure washed. These local businesses need our help! I am only buying local this year. Plenty of the shops around here have great gifts. You just need to get out and look! Sarah Elizabeth Williams: Shop local grocery stores, fruit stands, etc. instead of big box stores to buy in gredients for holiday meals and baking. rrrfJim McGauley It was fun, fun, fun at the Baker County PreK-Kindergarten Center last Friday. My visits there are always a special expe rience and the powwow was just another in a long line of exceptional events at which this schools enthusiastic staff excels. The schools positive be havior support program is well established and students have the opportunity each month to be involved in a re ward activity. This month it was a powwow that capped off their recent study of Thanksgiving, pilgrims and native American customs and culture. When told about the upcoming pre-K pow wow I couldnt help but smile. I was to be a spe cial guest that day and the kids recognized me in a very personal way. Everyone got to be an Indian for the pow wow and even have the honor of using a tradi tional name. When I arrived at the front office I was greeted by She Who Guides The School, also known as Principal Bonnie Jones wearing a fringed buckskin dress in honor of the Indians of the Great Plains region of the United States. She Who Guides The School presented me with my regalia for the day, courtesy of Ms. McNeals class. This enterprising teacher and her students designed and created a custom vest and headband especially for me. I was even made a princess and given an Indian name for the day, inspired by my journalism profession: Princess Writes Alot. Regalia is the term native Americans use in stead of costume to describe the traditional clothing often worn at powwows and other The members of the high schools history club pre sented a delightful program for the kids and their regalia was great, right down to their body paint. They did an especially good job re-enacting a group of warriors returning from a successful buffalo hunt and the celebration tribes engaged in after such an event. And the kids loved it. It was a great prelude to the Thanksgiving holiday now upon us. This year it would be vance. NFL.com actually states that the game of football is a sacred Thanksgiving tradition, but I think we all know football is not sacred and has nothing to do with the origin of the Thanks giving celebration. Ongoing scholarship directed by the Thanksgiving research project at the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts is prob ably your best bet for gaining an understand ing of the events that led to our current holiday traditions. Unlike the more familiar Plymouth, the alternate Plimoth spelling was adopted for the museum by scholars who have determined its closest to what would have been accurate in the 1700s. The presence of Wampanoag Indians is a primary ingredient in the ongoing research of what is considered Americas premier living history museum. They had occupied the area where the pilgrims initially settled for more than 7,000 years. Nearly half the English settlers who came tion. It was Squanto, an English speaking Pan tuxet Indian, who is credited with teaching them farming techniques to grow food. In a gesture of good will, the colonists invited the Wampanoag and other tribes in the area to vest. Unfortunately, that goodwill was not to last on either side, but that is another story. To learn the most up to date information about Plimoth Plantation, the Wampanoag In dians and the origin of the Thanksgiving holi day, consider taking the Plimoth Plantation Virtual Field Trip. You can view it at http://www.scholastic. com/scholastic_thanksgiving/webcast.htm or just google Plimoth. Kelley Lannigan The best way to title this col umn is Thanksgivings I Have Known Thanksgiving usually isnt quite as memorable as Hallow een or Christmas or even Easter for that mat ter, but Ive had some memora ble ones. Theres the time my sister decided to try a new cooking technique she heard about on television and cooked the turkey was supposed to give you a juicier turkey. Instead, we got a raw turkey. My sister, in a fit of pique, grabbed it, walked to the back door and hurled the bird as far as she could while saying distinctly un-thankful things. We had Swanson TV dinners that Thanksgiving. Then there is my earliest memory from Turkey Day, which proved to be a pivotal moment in stepped on stage. If you only know me from reading my column, let me en lighten you about why that is important. Im the high school drama director and have been in volved in plays in one way or an other for most of my life. I got my start in a Thanksgiving play when I was in the third grade. You know the story. Pilgrims in their buckled shoes and tall hats come to the New World to make a new life. It doesnt go particularly well until Squanto and his friendly In dian tribe teach them about farm ing. Happy Pilgrims and happy Indians celebrate with big feast. I was 8 years old, a Pilgrim and not happy about it. Why? I didnt want to be a Pil grim and wear a stupid tall hat made out of cardboard, an even stupider white collar made out of construction paper and buckles on my shoes made out of tinfoil. I wanted to be an Indian and paint my face, wear feathers and carry a bow and arrow. I was not happy with my teacher Mrs. Dukes for making me a Pilgrim. I had lines and got to sing We Gather Together with the other Pilgrims but that did not make up for not having a bow and arrow. So, the show begins and all is going well until Squanto forgets his lines about fertilizing the veg etable garden with fish bones. The line never comes. We all stand looking at each other wondering who had messed up. I knew who messed up because I had learned everybodys lines. Young over-achiever at work. I knew the line, but it wasnt my line so I wasnt about to say it. I was a Pilgrim. Give me a bow and arrow and Ill pull Squantos Terror begins to seep up from the stage. The Indians and Pil grims all have a turkey-in-theheadlights look. For some reason unbeknownst to me, Mrs. Dukes does not have her script so she cant feed Squan to his lines. The silence drags on and on. Sweat begins to form on young foreheads. Finally, Pilgrim 3 had enough. Hey, Squanto, why do you have those fish bones in your hand? Huh? Squanto was not the brightest Indian in the tribe. What are you going to Do with those ! OH! Squanto say plant the fish bones in vegetable garden and crops grow tall. dience applauded and Pilgrim 3 waited to receive his thanks from his grateful fellow cast members. Hey, Robbie, whyd you for get that line? Yeah, I felt like an idiot stand ing there. Thats the last time I want to be in a play with you. I was dumbfounded. Some how, they thought that really was my line instead of me throwing a life preserver to a drowning In dian. I never did get the credit I de served, so naturally one might as sume that Pilgrim 3 never would set foot on stage again. Wrong. I wanted to get it right the next time. Or maybe I just wanted the bow and arrow. ROBERT GERARD rfnnntbbbb Send us letters and make sure they are SIGNED with a phone number. Emily Taber

Page 4 T B C P ursday, November 24, 2011 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe top environmental health concern in Margaretta is the preponderance of broken septic tanks, while Sandersons chief priority is clean water, according to focus group results announced last week by the county health department. The departments environmental health director Terry citizens from both communities last August and September and conducted the surveys aimed at uncovering each areas top environmental health concerns. Though the environment was broadly defined, encompassing sidewalks, roads and lighting as well as role models for children and drug dealing on the street, the highest priority for each community was still waterrelated. Ten citizens from Sanderson participated in the survey. Five ranked clean water among their top five environmental health concerns, four chose sidewalks or lighting, three cited access to recreation or parks, two pointed to trash or litter and only one placed septic tanks among the The survey also included questions regarding water quality, septic systems and homes in need of repair or weatherization. The Sanderson survey showed that 30 percent of respondents said they have or know someone who has a broken septic tank and 20 percent said they have an unused or abandoned well or know somebody who does. All respondents from Sanderson said their water quality was good or okay, and 40 percent said their home or the home of somebody they know needs repair or weatherization. Weatherization refers improvements intended to protect homes from the cold in the winter and the heat in the summer like new windows or better insulation. These two communities are very different ... In Margaretta, its basically the opposite, Mr. Graham told attendees of the monthly board of directors meeting for Healthy Baker, Inc., to improve the health of local residents through the cooperaother segments of the community including schools, the sherproviders. The survey results from a group of 23 residents from Margaretta showed the communitys top priority to be septic tanks. In fact, 96 percent of respondents said they or someone they knew had a broken septic tank and 90 percent said they had or knew someone who had an unused or abandoned well. In ranking their top environmental health concerns, four respondents placed malfunctioning septic tanks within the top by three respondents. Mosquito control, hard water and street level drug dealing were noted among the top concerns twice, while role models for kids and neighborhood appearance each showed up once. Half of the Margaretta respondents said their water quality was acceptable while the other half said it was bad. Twenty-two in the group said their home or that of somebody they knew needed repairs or weatherization. The surveys were funded through a roughly $14,000 grant from the Florida Department of Health and could be replicated throughout the county in the future using remaining funds. The survey results will be used to support applications for additional grants to fund environmental health improvements, though Mr. Graham said hes yet to identify a potential grant source. He stressed, however, the importance of demonstrating comprovements. Were trying to get them to help us help them, said Mr. Graham. The chances for winning a grant award greatly improve when the residents who will benare actively seeking such assistance, he explained. Otherwise theyll say, you as a state agency, are in search of a problem thats not there, said Mr. Graham. Vicki Terry, a regular attendee of the Healthy Baker meetings who does outreach for Northeast Florida Community Action Agencys weatherization program, was surprised that the surveys showed such a need for the program in the two communities. Weve done quite a few homes in Margaretta and Sanderson, Ms. Terry said. But I also have a lot of postponements in those areas ... What they need is often beyond what weatherization can do. Many residents, she added, are living in deplorable conditions, heating their homes with gas ovens or going without running water. For whatever reason, theyre falling through the cracks, Ms. Terry said. Still, recent efforts to spread the word about weatherization assistance have caused an uptick in applications for the program from seniors and others. In other health-related news from the Healthy Baker meeting: parents of children up to toddlerage is planned to begin in January. The Parents Helping Parents group will give moms and dads a chance to swap helpful tips about potty training, disciplining, safety and baby cues. The group meetings are free and incentives will available for participating parents. Health department personnel will be on hand for the meetings to offer their suggestions about healthy and safe child development. Not every child comes from a strong family, said health department director Kerry Dunlavey. Things that may seem intuitive for many are just not there. She said the program comes on the heels of state funding cuts that eliminated the countys Healthy Families program. There was a big gap left, she said. Now we have something to help uneducated parents. Healthy Baker board members unanimously approved the new program. For more information about Parents Helping Parents, call Andrea Birget at 259-8267 ext. 2253. Ms. Birget said donations are being sought to buy snacks and gift cards, which will serve as incentives for participation for the program. tality Task Force will have its next quarterly meeting December 2 at the health department at 2:30 pm. The task force is set to review 2010 birth data and review the Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalitions regional plan to combat teen pregnancy. ed its fall run and has plans to reopen in March.

Page 8 T B C P ursday, November 24, 2011 KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES features@bakercountypress.comCommunity service hours have become an important part of competing for college scholarships, especially Florida Bright Futures scholarships, as seniors at Baker County High School well know. At one level, such volunteerism is performed with the knowledge that its required to college, but for one Glen St. Mary senior, Sarah Whitehead, being a volunteer is just a natural part of her personality and her life. Some scholarships only require 30 hours of community service for a candidate to qualify. To date, Ms. Whitehead, 17, has racked up a whopping 531 hours since her freshman year as well as countless hours of volunteering that are not documented. And this altruistic student has no intention of putting the breaks on her volunteer endeavors any time soon. It all started with her aunt Amanda McCook, a teacher at Callahan Elementary. My Aunt Amanda and I were practically joined at the hip when I was younger, she explained during an interview with The Press November 14. I was always going with her to her school and so I just got involved in whatever was going on, she said. During the summer she often helped her aunt prepare for the upcoming school year. When she was older she got involved in helping students with art projects during the schools Friday Family ing and grading papers. This scenario would become the source of many of her community service hours needed by the scholarship program. I was always by my aunts side, she explained. Getting involved and helping just became natural to me. And I grew to love working with kids. Thats one reason I entered the high schools health academy. I want to be a pediatrician. horizon. When she graduates this spring, she will only be a semester away from an associates degree in health science. Then she plans to enter the University of North Florida to earn her nursing degree. After that, shell probably tackle medical school. Meanwhile she will just keep volunteering. I simply cannot be idle, she admits. I have to be busy, to have plans to do something. She has worked with Habitat for Humanity, cleaning up debris from house construction sites and even helping with plumbing. Whatever was needed, we did it, she said. Shes been out in 95-degree heat for hours cooking at food tions such as The Rotary Club. She loves her church and helps out any way she can and she does volunteer work in line with her chosen future profession. Volunteering is not always a walk in the park, shes discovered, but in the long run, always worth it. Sometimes the most important thing is the ability to have patience, said Ms. Whitehead. She found that out while volunteering for the school districts hearing and vision screenings done in conjunction with the Baker County Health Department. Patience was very important with all the children and especially the disabled or special needs children. They can get quickly confused by the experience, get frustrated easily if they dont understand the directions and so discouraged when they dont score well, she said. She came to learn how challenging communication can be, but that its important to just keep at it until a way is found to help children understand. After working with the elementary schools screenings, she was reluctant to volunteer to do a stint with the PreK-Kindergarten Center. But her guidance counselor Debbie Charko talked her into it. Im glad I listened, she admits now. The children were awesome. Such innocence, such joy at getting the correct answer. Im so glad I experienced the PreK as well as the other grade levels. Last summer Ms. Whiteheads volunteer service helped her earn a Rotary Youth Leadership Association scholarship to a weeklong leadership camp in St. Augustine. There she had her most cherished volunteer experience to date, working with children at the St. Augustine YMCA. She fell in love with every single one. And the leadership camp experience helped her cross paths with people she would have never met otherwise, people of all races and backgrounds. Im sort of a quiet person by nature and not that outgoing, she admitted. Its actually a challenge for me to put myself out there and get involved. Volunteering has helped me grow a lot in that respect. So whats her future dream volunteering gig? That would be administering polio vaccine to children in a third world country, she said.

There were both wonderful things happening all over the field and baffling miscues that kept the team out of the playoffs. Five points separated the Wildcats from a perfect season and maybe a No. 1 state ranking. Four points kept the Cats from the playoffs and a district title. Those are the kind of stats that make Coach Ryan Sulkowski and his staff yank their hair out. The absence of ace kicker Jeremy Wannamaker due to a high ankle sprain and some costly turnovers made all the difference. You cant turn the ball over and win games, said Sulkowski. The ball just didnt bounce our way. There were remarkable wins and heartbreaking near wins. The Cats gave Clay a big lead with costly turnovers then battled back to lose by a point. They led Bolles by two touchdowns only to see the Bulldogs come back and win by a point. Nonetheless, on paper it was a remarkable and record-setting season. Offensively, the Wildcats were the poster children for a balanced offense. They averaged 162.5 yards passing per game and 168.3 yards rushing per game. The Cats had 2437 total yards passing and 2524 yards rushing. The offensive juggernaut put up a school-record 64 points versus Paxon. The Cats had a pair of 1000 yard rushers in Falon Lee (1082 yards) and Thomas Sirk (1018 yards). Lee averaged 8 yards per carry and Sirk 9 yards a try. Sirk threw the ball 207 times with 141 completions for 2303 yards and 26 touchdowns. The likely future Duke University Blue Devil had a completion percentage of .681 and 127 quarterback rating. He set a school record with his six touchdown passes against Terry Parker. He ran the ball 111 times for 1018 yards and 17 touchdowns. Sirk also punted the ball 13 times for a 46-yard average. His top receiver was Southern Mississippi commitment Kendrick Singleton. Singleton set a school record with four touchdown catches against Terry Parker. He had 60 receptions for 1085 yards and 16 touchdowns. His highlight reel includes a 91-yard touchdown reception. He also had a rushing touchdown and 52 tackles and an interception. Malone Hadley finished the season with 40 catches for 667 yards and six touchdowns including an 85-yard scamper. Falon Lee was the top rusher, carrying the ball 127 times for 1085 yards and six scores. His longest run from scrimmage was 55 yards. Lee also led the team in interceptions with six. Jared Lee had a huge senior season with 111 tackles for a 10.1 per game average, plus three interceptions. Hunter Sullivan had 76 tackles and four sacks. Kyle Alexander had 66 tackles, six fumble recoveries and a trio of interceptions. Freshman CeCe Jefferson had 56 tackles and 10 sacks. That tied him for the team lead with Elijah Lee, who had 48 tackles as well. Rickie Tharpe had 42 tackles, an interception and a sack. Terry Givens graded out as the top offensive lineman.

I NJURY LA W $ $ WE BUY TIMBER $ $ Lady Wildcat volleyball striker Chelsey Ruise was recently named to the Florida Athletic Coachs Association Senior All-Star Game on December 4 at St. Leo University. It is first time that a Wildcat player has been named to an All-Star squad in volleyball. Its a really big deal, said Athletic Director Melody Coggin. I cant remember it ever happening before. Ruise played in 69 sets for the Wildcats this season and had 115 kills and a .413 hitting average. She had 2.27 kills per set. Ruise led the team in blocks with 37 and had 33 additional block assists. Chelsey is an amazing force at the net, said Coach Heather Sulkowski. Ruise had remarkable mobility around the net either blocking an opponents shot or altering what an opponent would attempt just by her presence. She is a leader and an amazing athlete, said Ms. Sulkowski. I am so glad that she is representing us in the all-star game.PHOTO COURTESY OF BAKER COUNTY TOUCHDOWN CLUBSkins clinch league title with 34-14 winBaker County Touchdown Clubs Redskins team coached by David Manning (shown center above) won the senior league championship game 34-14 against the 49ners team the evening of November 17.
