Its not a recruiting program, he said. Its building a better citi zen program. If it keeps one kid from dropping out of high school, so much the better. All students in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to join. Those who successfully complete at least three years and then en list in the military after gradu ation will be advanced two pay grades immediately after boot camp, which could mean an extra $300 to $500 a month. But most will never get to boot camp, said Maj. Chiofolo, a for retired from the Air Force in 1995 after serving more than 20 years on active duty, ending his career as an instructor at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala. About 92 to 93 percent nev er go into the military, he said, which is okay with him as long as he keeps turning out cadets who turn into good, responsible citi zens. There are many ways to serve our country, he said, adding that hes proud of those students who choose to serve their community in other ways, such as becoming a Maj. Chiofolo, who commutes 30 miles daily from his home on Jacksonvilles Westside, said JROTC emphasizes discipline, character building and develop ing leadership skills. Thats a big part of what we teach, he said. Though hes never had a stu dent who made it to the Air Force Academy, Maj. Chiofolo said one female cadet of his came real close. She had the grades to qualify but freshmen enrollment cutbacks caused her to miss the ing in the ROTC program at the University of Florida instead. We were able to get her a scholarship, he said. Maj. Chiofolo is one half of the instructional staff in the JROTC unit. The other half is Master Ser geant Elizabeth Law-Wallace, a retired Air Force non-commis is authorized when cadet enroll ment increases to 151, but Mr. Hill said thats not likely to hap pen anytime soon. Its been a struggle to reach 100 each year, said Mr. Hill. We have recruitment nights through out the year at the middle school to generate some interest. Board member Jesse Davis praised the JROTC program for giving cadets a strong foundation for entering adulthood and be ginning careers after high school. It helps propel them into life and gives them opportunities they might not otherwise have, Mr. Davis said.

Dr. Futch negotiated with many of her vendors, who were generous in donating their prod ucts to her effort. Members of her staff enjoyed helping children through the different phases of the eye exam. Technician Gail Hodges got them started with a look through a machine called a pupilometer. The device measures the dis tance between a persons pupils, which is then used to create a guide showing the technician making the glasses how to line the lenses up directly in front of each eye. After the pupilometer, students selected their frames and then it was off to see Dr. Futch in her exam room to determine the prescriptions. She tested for nearsightedness, farsightedness and other abnormalities. During the exam she kept up an easy, pleasant banter with students, asking questions and engaging them on a personal level. So, do you have trouble seeing far or near? she asked student Jaxon Burnsed as she guided an instrument called a phoropter to his face for him to peer through. She recorded data as he looked at an eye chart through lenses of different strengths. What about the white board at school, any trouble seeing that?

An Atlanta lady claimed over the weekend that she had a 13-year affair with Mr. Cain, who peaked as a Republican front-runner for the presidential nomination just weeks ago. Now its possible that hes out of the race amid that allegation plus those of several other women the past month who accused him of inappropriate behavior. Herman was kinda my man before all this happened, and yes, theres a chance a very slim one all this could be fab ricated because hes a target of the left that despises black con servatives. Weve been to that dance before. My questions for Herman are two. If all this stuff is true, didnt you know it would all come out at the most strategically advantageous time for your opponents in both parties? If its all true and you thought youd get away with it, are you smart enough to be president? And this leads to another enticing question. What, exactly, do Americans believe is appropriate behavior by presidents or those who seek to be president? as for the people as in FDR, or a member of the little mans party as in Bill Clinton, the public is more tolerant. Theres far less patience with those on the conservative side, many of If they mess around, they topple into the hole they dug for themselves. The revered martyred president JFK we know now treat ed women like one-a-day multiple vitamins. As in the case of FDR and LBJ, a lot of people knew about it, but back then they winked at each other, as if to say Its a secret we Washington elite will just keep amongst ourselves okay? The strategy of Mr. Clinton, and that of his wife, was to re spond to allegations of this nature including forcible rape with straight-faced denial, or in the case of Ms. Lewinski and likely others, just lie about it. And continue lying until allega tions (your word against mine!) kinda go away. Didnt work for John Edwards of $400 haircut fame. He lied and it didnt go away, and now hes the poster boy for slime in the annals of presidential hopefuls. Its frightening to think he could have been our vice-president, a heartbeat away from another sleazy affair. that western Europeans take about the sex lives of their lead ers? Not likely, though one has to admit things have loosened up the past 50 years. One thing seems certain. Itll continue damaging candidates for president. If youve been naughty, its gonna come out. I bagged my limit this past weekend. I bet you didnt know that I was a hunter. Im not exactly. I didnt go hunt ing the deer I bagged. I just sort of ran up on it. Literally. We were driving home Thanksgiving night in the old mini-van and as we came around a curve about a quarter of a mile from my house there were six deer (and before you reach for the telephone, no Im not tell ing you where they were). There were three on one side of the road, two on the other, and one who was determined to commit suicide. Wham! The deer drove the grill through the radiator and crum pled a headlight assembly. I felt aw ful about it. Id have swerved if I could but I would have swerved into even more deer. Later, a friend of mine wrote on Facebook about her son shooting a buck over the week end. I responded Big deal I got mine with a mini-van. Jaguar head coach. So far, Wayne Weaver hasnt called me. I cant understand that. Granted I have no real coach ing experience beyond YMCA soccer, but like any Jaguar fan anywhere, I can tell whats wrong with the team, so give me a shot. The first thing Coach Bob ceiver who can catch the ball and keep his mouth shut. That dis qualifies Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. Hmm. This might be harder than it sounds. quarterback to mentor Blaine Gabbert. Hmm. The only one around is David Garrard. This is Oh, and somewhere along the line I might think about picking up Timmy Tebow when John El way kicks him to the curb at the end of the season. Once I have solved those uars, solved the season ticket problems and sold a lot of No. 15 jerseys. for the US Congress. The New York Times rated this Congress as the worst ever. They have a 13 percent approval rating up from last months 9 percent. Ive got to have a higher ap proval rating than that? So Czar Bob, how would you solve the budget crisis? In my house, in order to avoid a budget crisis I just dont spend more money than I make. If Im budget czar, that means the whole country is my house. So, I guess I wont spend more money than I make. Oh, and maybe Ill think about not borrowing money from a communist country whose longterm goal is to see us politically and economically destroyed. Who ever thought that borrow ing money from the Chinese was Wed have been better off bor rowing money from some guy named Rocco who operates out of a storefront in Atlantic City. Hed only break our legs if we didnt pay, not break our econo my. I wonder if I could be budget czar and Jaguar head football coach at the same time? No con After I solve our budget and gridiron problems maybe Ill run for President. I dont really want to be pres ident I dont really know why anybody in his right mind would want the job. Hmm maybe thats why were stuck with the current bunch of candidates. Ever thought of that? Weve got a pizza executive who cant keep his hands to him self (Herman Cain), a Texan who cant put together a coherent sen tence (Rick Perry), a guy named Newt who nobody really likes, a rich guy who looks like a robot (Mitt Romney), a couple of nut cases (Michelle Bachmann and Ron Paul), a bunch of people no ones ever heard of and our current president. I honestly dont know that I could do much worse. Fresh from a long weekend that for many featured feasts with family and ock ing to Black Friday sales for fantastically great deals, we asked our Facebook fans Monday morning, What was your favorite moment from Thanksgiving? Heres what they had to say ...Nick Apromollo: Sleeeeeep. Theresa Dinkins: Being in Tennes see with friends and family. Katie Robinson: Watching my 6 year old stomp all of the adults in a dice game. Dwayne Norman: All the laughter and reminiscing. It was a great day. Thank you Lord for such a great day. Barbara Blackshear: Coming back home! Blanche E. Legendre Chinn: Not having to cook for a change! Yea me! Clayton Yarbrough: Home made pecan and coconut cream pies. Hands down! Yummy! Shirley-Winston Sapp: Enjoying a corn dog with my husband at the Day tona car show!

Donna Hare Ruis: XBOX games! Christina Ladymasterchief Harris: Im more family oriented. Material items do not take a front seat in my life.

Coach Cov ington was at Baker County High School from 1957 to 1968. He and his lovely wife Joanne were among those educators for whom teaching was a calling rather than a job. They sowed seeds of encour agement and discipline that de manded the best of their stu dents and influenced lives far beyond the high school years. They showed by example how to be men and women of integrity, how to love others as you love yourself. Even after over 40 years, a majority of former players were there to honor this couple. A suc cessful group of men, husbands and fathers, and now grandfa thers, whose own lives have left indelible marks on our commu nity. They are men of business and education, government lead ers, and professionals, all who played for T.C. What was then all about the Friday night game or track meet was really about the molding and shaping of young lives. Thank you, Coach and Mrs. Covington, for your loving investment in us. May we be as dil igent to pay it forward.Gary and Kathy Barber Glen St. MaryDear Editor:You published an article on Glenn Collingwood (sentenced to four years on November 17) in last weeks paper. He has been tried and will be punished for his actions handled through the judicial system and not through your newspaper. It is a tragedy on the rest of his family to have its name smeared like this. Not only did you not get factual information, you had to publish a picture of him. In all of the 29 years I have lived in Bak er County, I have never seen you put murderers or child molest ers pictures in the paper. Its a real shame that you would rather print stories of tragedies versus blessed events. I have never seen you write about what a beautiful wedding some one had or about a person who has dedicated many years to their job. I hope and pray to God that you will have more consideration of the families you are slander ing when printing these articles. I also pray noting like this ever happens in your family.Thelma M.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, December 1, 2011 JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comAs the Council on Aging moves forward with laying the groundwork to one day bring public transportation back to Baker County using federal grant money, the Macclenny-based nonprofit now has at least an indication there exists some de mand for such a service. The organization, which pro vides free bus transportation to the elderly and disabled, distrib uted surveys last Spring to gauge support for expanding trans portation services to the general public. About 200 surveys were re turned of some 5500 printed with 90 percent of respondents indicating they would use ad ditional public transportation if it were available in Baker County at a reasonable cost. The survey was also available online. The Council on Agings [COA] transportation coordinator Deb ra Bowen said that while more responses wouldve been ideal, such a large proportion showing interest in more public transpor tation will help in securing grants to expand services in the future. We didnt get as much feed back as we wanted, she said. But this is very good. It shows lic transportation in Baker Coun ty. Responses from the 13-ques tion survey, which also addressed destination and traveling time preferences, will be used as sup porting documentation for a grant application due in Janu ary to fund employment-related transportation services. The Federal Transportation Administrations [FTA] so-called Job Access and Reverse Com assistance to transport riders to jobs, job interviews or job assis tance centers like WorkSource on S. 6th St., according the pro grams 2011 grant manual issued by the Florida Department of Transportations [FDOT] Public the program. Funding could come as soon as July 2012, though its unclear how much will be available, Ms. Bowen said. Plans to make COA buses available to the public at-large are still in the works, but we county and we want to be the one to provide that service, she said. In other recent COA transpor tation news: for maintenance of COA buses and space for the agencys trans portation personnel is expected to move into the planning, de sign and engineering phase this month. The agencys transportation west corner of 2nd St. and Shuey Ave. in Macclenny. The new facility is planned on 10 acres at the southwest corner Willis Hodges and Buck Starling roads behind Winn-Dixie. COA bought the property be fore transferring ownership to the county, which in turn leased last summer at $1 per year. The arrangement became necessary after the county secured about $2.1 million in grant fund ing from the US Department of Transportation for the project. Private entities like COA are not eligible for the departments Transportation Investment Gen erating Economic Recovery grants and the county could not spend the funds on private prop erty. After advertising the countys need from planning, design and engineering services, the county received about 50 inquires from firms interested in receiving more detailed information about the project, said Maurice Postal, the countys grants coordinator. Advertising was placed in The Florida Times-Union and at De mandStar.com, a website where government agencies can seek vendors and vice versa. Most of the inquires, es pecially the out-of-area firms, were probably a response to the DemandStar posting, said Mr. Postal. The DemandStar ad went up a week earlier than the ad in the T-U. Firms that weve worked with in the past, such as Tarbox Engineering, Kasper Ar chitects, King Engineering and Ajax Construction have indicated interest. Mr. Postal was still surprised by the volume of responses. Its likely due to a sluggish economy and shrinking govern ment budgets, he reasoned, since the contracts price tag, which is expected to account for 10 to 15 percent of the overall projects cost, isnt extraordinary. How many people actually tions by the Friday deadline is another story, he said, refer ring to the December 2 cutoff which typically reflect a firms relevant experience and staff A three-member committee of county manager C.J.

JTA program manager Liz Peak said the resource center, which will be available online or by phone, will function like many travel websites where riders can see schedules, fares and other in formation and book trips imme diately. The bookings will feed directly to bus drivers via the mobile data terminals. Private transportation companies, JTA buses and COA buses will all be part of the sys tem. You will pay more for a direct trip, but you could pay less on a [COA] vehicle or JTA vehicle the public transportation op tions, Ms. Peak said. Riders will be able to choose whether to leave immediately via a taxi, for instance, or wait a few hours for the next available COA or JTA bus. populations veterans, the dis abled, seniors and low-income individuals in Baker, Clay, Put Ms. Peak said trips from those areas to VA facilities in Gaines ville and Lake City will be also be available. The grant requires that the center serve veterans, but it does not exclude other eligible riders. The grant was one of 33 na tionwide from nearly $35 million allocated by FTA. JTA will soon release a Request for Proposals to implement the regional resource center, in cluding the terminals, website and Internet phone components.JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker Countys crime rate con tinued the roller-coaster trend of recent years by jumping close to compared to the same period last year, after falling close to 11 per cent between 2009 and 2010. The recent increase comes largely due to 35 more thefts be tween January and June of 2011 a increase of 32 percent, accord ing to semi-annual crime data re leased by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement last month. The crime rate reflects the total number of seven index ible rape, robbery, aggravated as sault, burglary, larceny and mo tor vehicle thefts. The total number of index crimes for January to June of this year was 193 versus 157 for the same period last year, an in crease of 22.9 percent. But as the number of such crimes rose, so did the number of arrests and share of cases cleared or solved. law enforcement agencies oper ating here mostly the sheriffs and Florida Highway Patrol made 435 arrests. For the same period in 2011, law enforcement made 512 ar rests, of which 92.3 percent were adults, 7.6 percent were juveniles and 14.4 percent were for thefts and burglaries. Arrests climbed 17.7 percent between the two periods. There were 15 arrests for aggravated assault, three for motor vehicle thefts, eight for robbery and one for a forcible sex offense between January and June of this year. The percentage of crimes solved by law enforcement in creased too, from 49 percent dur percent for the same period in 2011. Compared to semi-annual crime data from 2010, there were two more forcible rapes, three more robberies, seven fewer aggravated assaults, two more bur glaries and one more motor ve Baker County has historically had relatively low numbers of in dex crimes when theyre stacked up against other counties. Bradford County, for in stance, had 683 such crimes in 2010 while Columbia County had 2,428 and Baker County just 394. With such a small volume of crimes here, minor increases or decreases in particularly index crimes can mean larger swings of the overall crime rate. Still, the 22.9 percent rise in Baker Countys crime rate was on par with the increases seen in 29 other counties around the state, most of which ranged between 15 and 30 percent. Bradford Countys crime rate, however, more than tripled while 38 other counties like Duval and all saw declines. crime reports, which go back more than a decade, visit http:// FSAC/UCR/UCR-Home.aspx.

We are available online at www.bakercountypress.comT B C PPage14DECEMBER 1, 2011 A team of 7and 8-year-olds selected as all-stars from the Baker County Touchdown Club league traveled to Waycross Nothe winners of the 2011 Mickey Kataveck Gator B0wl tournament. The youths shutout two teams in the three-game tournament double-overtime with a 6-0 victory against Camden County on November 23. It was an all out war, said coach David Crummey, whose team registered as the Baker County Wildcats after BCHS football coach Ryan Sulkowski donated jerseys. Another team coach, Bruce Sapp, painted players helmets white before stickers of the Wildcat logo were added. Mr. Crummey said the Camden team, who had won the tournament several times, was notably bigger and stronger than his team, but the heart of the Wildcats couldnt be matched. Camdens defense kept us in check for most of the game and we turned the ball over twice, fense was maybe even better, not allowing Camden to get into the end zone and forcing two turnovers themselves. At the end of the game, the scoreboard read 0-0. That triggered a tie-breaker in which each team received a chance to score from the 15-yard line. ther team found the end zone and our defense, although tired, was giving all they had in the tank, and continued to stop Camden County, he said. In the second ran it right at them while asking our offensive line to dig as deep as they could to block a bigger and faster line. With the ball at the 1-yard line, the Wildcats runner was rebuffed. The team ran the same play on fourth down, but this time the running back crossed the goal line untouched thanks to strong blocking from the offensive line. The score ignited local fans who had traveled north to cheer on the young Wildcats. Then it was Camdens chance to answer. Camden got the ball for their shot at the end zone and although we stopped them for a big loss on a third down, a questionable face mask penalty was called, and gave them an auto9 yard line, said Mr. Crummey. Three plays later and no closer to the end zone, Camden sent there tallest receiver out for a hail mary pass and it was broken up on a nasty hit by a couple of Wildcats players. The teams championship trophy will be displayed at Memorial Stadium. It was something these kids will never forget, he said. The Wildcats made their way Jeff Davis County, 13-0, and Charlton County, 7-6. The teams players were Hunter Nordstrom, Mason Davis, Cameron Crawford, Carlos Jefferson, Garrett Cain, Noah Ray, Walker Avera, Ronnie Ellis, Tyson True, Carson Crawford, Bryson Burkhalter, Parker Cason, Zane Mobley, Toby Frier, Ross Crummey, Wesley Skaggs, Kevin Manley and Jacob Williams. Also coaching the team, which was sponsored by the Walmart Distribution Center and Firehouse Subs, was Chris True, Ronnie Ellis and Shannon Mobley.
