The Press Staff The Baker County sheriffs department sent out a regional advisory this week following the arrest of two High Springs, FL men for stealing thousands of dollars worth of copper tubing from a cellular phone tower west of Sanderson. Police suspect the pair likely is responsible for similar thefts in Florida and elsewhere, according to Investigator Steve Harvey. Timothy Jackson and Justin Wacasey, both 24, were caught by a patrolling deputy as they exited an access road near the tower about 4 am on December 17. Deputy Patrick McGauley pulled over their 1997 Ford pickup in the lot of the nearby Citgo station because its trailer had no license tag, and noticed the trailer was laden with a large amount of rubbercoated copper tubing and several metal parts. The occupants appeared nervous during questioning and said they were contractors returning from a tower job in Duval County. They gave differing versions, however, as to why they were exiting the nearby access road to US 90 from the tower owned by Jacksonville Cellular.

Suspect Melvin Thomas Mann, 29, was behind the wheel of a black 1998 Chevrolet pickup that also contained three young children, a passenger and materials and supplies commonly used to manufacture meth. Deputy Chris Walker spotted the driver, who the valid drivers license, about 4:15 pm and attempted to stop the vehicle on West Franklin Street. According to the deputys report, Mr. Mann did not stop, but jumped into the back seat after turning onto South Clinton Street where passenger Alexander Ryan Pellum, 19, of Glen St. Mary moved to the drivers seat and stopped the vehicle. The suspect resisted Deputy Walkers attempts to forcibly remove him from the back seat and used the children to shield the report indicates. With assistance from investigators present in the area, Mr. Mann was taken into custody and placed in the rear of a patrol car. Deputy Walker also noted that none of the children, ages 1, 3 and 7, were in car seats.

That threatens to derail his participation in a yearly trip to his in-laws to celebrate Christmas with his wife and children. The Times-Union asked that stories entered in the contest be a maximum of 1000 words and set on December 24 in a train station, bus depot or airport. And it just so happens that Ms. Prices grandfather, Alan Chinn, retired two years ago from CSX. He gave her some pointers and some good advice, her grandmother Blanche Chinn, said. Ms. Prices prize for winning the young student division was Magic. He needs to get his feet done, she said. Her favorite book is Misty of Chincoteague written by Marguerite Henry. Its a story about a family who raises a wild horse named Misty. Ms. Price has only written a handful of stories in school, but she reads aloud nightly and discusses the books with her family. The following is her winning story: Just another day, thought Jerry, as he prepared his cart for work. Jerry worked the evening shift as a janitor at Union Train Station in Washington D.C. It was Christmas Eve and everyone was in a hurry. Jerry took his time, pushing his cart to his the corner. There stood his boss Robert with a sly smirk on his face. Well, Jerry, looks like we need you to stay for the midnight shift because Lenny called in sick, Robert said. Jerry replied, Its not fair. My wife and I were planning to take the kids to her parents house for Christmas morning to open presents. Its a tradition. If I have to stay, it will be impossible for our family to go. Jerry, Im sorry to spoil your tradition, but I need you to work. Its either work or quit. So, what is your choice? Replied Robert. Jerry didnt dare looked at his boss with a smile and said, sure boss, Ill be glad to stay. Jerry didnt know how he was going to tell his wife and children because they would be heartbroken. Traditions were important to his family. cleaned all the stations assigned to him and it was 7 pm before he the break room and sat down to call his wife with the bad news. As the telephone rang, Jerry still wife answered, and Jerry said, bad news. What do you want to hear first? Denise replied, Well, I guess I want the good get to make some extra money, but the bad news is that I have to stay at work all night because Lenny is sick. Oh no! said Denise. What about my parents house? The children will be upset and I really wanted to go this year because my parents are not in the best of health. Jerry replied, Well, the boss told me that I had to work or I wouldnt have a job tomorrow. I really need this job and I hate to be unemployed on Christmas Day. The line was silent for a moment and then Denise said, Traditions are important, but you need a job. I love you but it breaks my heart not to be with my parents on Christmas Day. Is there some way we can see my parents tomorrow? Jerry thought long and hard before replying, I dont know how we can. I get off at 7 am and have to be back at 3 pm. Ill be too tired to drive you and the children to your parents house and get back to work on time for my shift and said nothing but Goodbye! as she slammed the phone down. way to end a conversation with your wife on Christmas Eve. Jerry tried to call his wife back, but all he got was a busy sigand saw it was time for him to up his cart and supplies and Now what do I do, he thought. I guess I just trust that if God wants us together he will make it happen. Jerry wasnt happy about the situation, but knew that he had no other option other than working through the night. At 11 pm, he went back to the supply room and got what knew that the night would go by fast because of all the work he needed to get done. The later that it got, the more depressed Jerry his family down. What was he to believed in traditions. Spending Christmas morning with his wife, children and her parents met Denise in middle school and it was an important tradition. At 6:30 am, as he was thinking about leaving early, he heard his name being paged over the speakers in the station. Jerry Sanders, please report to the Amtrak desk on the upper level. Thats odd, he thought. I have my own radio and if they need me, they should just call me on my own radio. Again he heard Jerry Sanders, please report to the Amtrak desk on the upper level. Jerry called on his radio and asked if he was the one the Amtrak desk needed? All he heard was a yes and then nothing but static. This is just great, thought Jerry. Right at quitting time they expect me to clean up right thing to do so he pushed his cart up the ramp to the upper level. As he approached the Amtrak desk he couldnt believe his eyes. There around a beautiful Christmas tree sat his children, his wife wife stood up and said, Merry Christmas, darling! Being together on Christmas morning and celebrating the birth of Jesus with our children and my parents, means so much that we decided to join you here at work. We brought our traditions to you. Please join us around the tree. As Jerry joined his family, a group of carolers gathered around and began signing Oh Come All Ye Faithful. Jerry looked over the group that had gathered, he thought, I guess that trusting in God really does work and if traditions are meant to be continued then God will make it happen.

The suspect and Mr. Pellum, who said he was being paid by Mr. Mann to purchase ingredients used to make meth, were questioned by investigators Mike Hauge and John Hardin, the latter investigator reported. While patting down the passenger, the investigator observed a can of camping fuel, a box of pseudoephedrine and a jug of muriatic acid inside the vehicle. In the bed of the truck he found trash bags and garbage cans, one with three, 2-liter bottles that appeared to have been used to make methamphetamines, the Mr. Mann, upon questioning, said he was gathering the supplies for a friend but soon admitted to making the drug himself. Police later found more methmaking materials at his nearby residence. The truck was towed from the scene and Florida Department of Children and Families removed the children. Investigators described the suspect as an associate of two men arrested December 7 for operating a meth lab in Baldwin at the Hawkins Motel. He knows those people, said sheriffs office investigations chief Maj. Chuck Brannan. I would guess they were teaching him how to do it so he could set up shop here. Mr. Mann faces four felony charges fleeing and eluding police, three counts of child cruelty, producing methamphetamine and possessing chemicals used to manufacture the drug as well as a misdemeanor charge for driving on a suspended license.

Its the Annual Gingerbread House Building Contest and the competitors are at each others throats hurling insults and gumdrops. Somehow this helps promote Christmas cheer, or so they tell me before they take a swipe at each others house. Are you sure that is even gin gerbread? said Dylan. Looks like plywood to me, chimes in his sister Sara Beth, who is making a miniature gin gerbread village with her partner Ana Tomas. It is not plywood, said Ash ton. It is a gingerbread farm.

In last years competition, Cheryl cut out the windows, cov ered them with paper and put a lit candle inside the house for added affect. It was very impressive until we had to call out the ginger I just want you to understand that I have no stake in this con test. I am merely a chronicler like Mark Twain or Alexander Pope. My bunch is incredibly com petitive. They get it from their Mama who has been known to mope around all day after losing a game of Scrabble. Her progeny have been known to sweep all the tiles off a Scrabble board if they lose. So I choose not to compete. Im a neutral observer, like Swit zerland. I think our farm looks pretty good, said Crystal. For manufactured housing, quips Dylan. Doesnt it look good Uncle Bob? asked Ashton. Im Switzerland. Whats that supposed to mean? Theres a lot of laughter going on in our dining room. A lot of good natured ribbing and plenty of creativity. Its a fun time. Its become something of a Christmas tradition in our house and though Im not Bob the Builder and prefer to sit back and watch the competitors at work, I still enjoy it a lot. Yet another layer to the Christ mas spirit. ROBERT GERARD Dear Editor: I want to inform citizens of Governor Rick Scott recently an nounced that the new re-entry facility under construction west of Sanderson by the Depart ment of Corrections is slated for privatization. When the Baker County Com mission approved [zoning] for this facility, it and the citizens living in close proximity were under the impression it was gong to be operated by the state, not some private company. Under Rick Scotts proposed budget for next year, he plans to close six prisons and privatize some work camps and re-entry facilities throughout the state. He also plans to lay off 2,700 whom will be Baker County resi dents. I strongly urge the commis sioners to take a stand against the impending privatization of this facility the same way they did in regard to Northeast Flori da State Hospital. Let Governor Scott and our legislators know that we want curity guards running the new prison.John Bellovich MacclennyDear Editor:I read the article about teen pregnancies [in Baker County] being the highest in Florida and it proves that we need to stop talking about how to stop teens from having sex and teach them how to protect themselves. I say that because teens are going to do what they want re gardless of who tries to stop them. Im a 20-year-old mother of three, and yes, I am part of that percentage of teen mothers. Most teens (boys and girls) dont know how to put on a con dom the correct way or the girls arent taking some form of birth control. Parents, or someone, needs to explain to these girls that being a mother is not easy and is not a fairy tale like in tele vision and the movies. Give them a reality check. Im not speaking for all the teen moms, but its hard and you give up a lot. Merry Christmas and bless ev eryone. Tabitha Cohen MacclennyDear Editor: In response to the Bobcats record now at 6-2 article in the newspa per last week, the information was incorrect. The BCMS Lady Bobcats currently have a 11-1 record overall and 7-0 for the district games. They began the season by playing Lake City Middle and Suwannee Middle, winning both district games. They have also defeated Richardson Middle twice this year (your article indicated they lost to Richardson). Also, the players listed in the paper were incorrect. Megan Farmer and Vornesha Donaldson were great players for the Bobcats last year but are no longer at the middle school. Delicia Washington, Tristan Lauramore, Zoe Hamil, Lindsey Love and Abigayle Rice were also list ed in your article and are still players on the team, as well as Jada Jack son, Andrea Clark, Shea Robinson, Ashton Ray, Tynesha Reed, Keyon na Coger, Jessica Norman, Lia Love and Carliya Jefferson. All of the Lady Bobcats have played hard and deserve recognition for an awesome year, as does Coach Anne Cassidy for an outstanding two years of coaching. They have two games left in the regular season and then they will be headed to the championship game (Florida Star Conference). Congratulations Bobcats on an impressive year and good luck in your next games!Teresa Lauramore Glen St. MaryEditors Note: The Bobcats will play in the Florida Star Conference Championship January 19 in Madison County. The team defeated Su wannee County 44-25 December 15 to make their record 11-1, basket ball coach and BCMS athletic director Anne Cassidy said. Upcoming games include a home match-up against Wilkinson Junior High on January 5 before the team travels to Hamilton County on January 9. Dear Editor: This letter is to all the residents of the Hills of Glen and sur rounding area. My parents dog got out of their backyard the other night and while these break-outs are not common, they do happen. For three days they watched their pet suffer through an unknown illness. Instead of traveling to be with family for the holidays, they rushed their companion to the animal hospital, where they were told it was anti-freeze that poisoned him. There is no option but to put an animal down once this deadly poison is ingested. So they said goodbye to their beloved friend, companion and family member. This has truly broken my parents hearts. Whether it was intentional poisoning or merely an accident, it could have been prevented. Please be mindful when han dling anti-freeze, and if you hap pen to spill some while perform ing maintenance on your vehicle, please clean it up. And, if you think it was a good idea to place a bowl of food laced with anti-freeze to get rid of a problem animal, just ask my par ents how that turned out! We have animal control for a reason; try giving them a call if you have a problem. For people who have pets, keep them close by so this can be prevented from happening to you. Merry Christmas.Shawn McDaniel Baker Work Camp Sanderson LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Kelley Lannigan rff nt btfrt ft Like most kids, I absolutely loved Christmas. I think few would argue that from a childs perspective its without a doubt the most fun and exciting holiday of the year. As adults, that perspective changes and although still enjoy able, Christmas is often viewed as a lot of extra work when you add up the hours of shopping, planning, decorating, hosting and attending parties, cooking, gift wrapping, traveling and of course, taking down and packing up all those lights. And increasingly, the premise and message the observance was founded on the spirit of giving, of peace on earth and good will gets lost amid the rampant con sumerism that, even for many At some point each Christmas, getting into the spirit. Then, in evitably, something happens to change that. This year that something is a certain inspirational music video made by a young man in Canada named Sean Quigley. Of all the Christmas music I grew up hearing, The Little Drummer Boy was one of my fa vorites, but the popularity of the song faded into the background as the years slipped by. But this young Canadians contemporary take on the song has catapulted it into the spot light once again. A drummer himself, Sean was personally inspired by the mes sage of the song, about a young man who has nothing to pres ent to Jesus but the one thing he does best drumming. Sean directed and edited his visually stunning video, which features him drumming and walking in different snow-cov ered landscapes shot around his home city of Winnipeg. Within two weeks of upload ing the video, it went viral with well over 200,000 hits. He arranged, composed, re corded, mixed and mastered the catchy, updated version of the beloved Christmas song and did the singing and played all the in struments you hear on the music track as well. Drummer Boy speaks to me so much, he told CBC News, who featured him as a guest on their morning segment Decem ber 3. The whole song is a story. Its about this boy who gets word of Jesus being born and he goes to see him and he doesnt have anything to give him; hes like I dont have money, I dont have gifts to give you. But I can play my drum and thats more than enough. Sean praised his sister who gave him a hand operating the video camera and helped him get the shots he desired. He told CBC he was inspired by the song because, as a drum mer himself and what he believes Christmas should be, he could re late on a very personal level. Its because of what Christ mas is really about. Its not about Santa. Its not about the presents. Its about the birth of Jesus, he said. You can view Sean Quigleys Little Drummer Boy video on Youtube. The Little Drummer Boy also known as The Carol of the Drum as written in 1941 by American music teacher and composer Katherine Kennicott Davis. The song has been recorded countless times since then by such artists as Bing Crosby, Ste vie Wonder, Johnny Cash, Faith Hill, and even heavy metal and alternative bands.rfntb Send us letters and make sure they are SIGNED with a phone number.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, December 22, 2011 MIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF Motorists who travel across the Manntown bridge on County Road 125, which is being replaced by the Florida Department of Transportation, will have to get used to taking a different route for at least the next four months. Beginning around mid-January, detour signs will be erected on Interstate 10 and on local roads in the vicinity to alert drivers to the road closure and divert zone. Only people who live near the bridge will be permitted to continue using that portion of County Road 125 between County Road 130 (Mud Lake Road) and Woodlawn Road near the southern end of the bridge project. The Baker County Commission approved the road closure on the evening of December 19 at the request of DOTs chief engineer on the project, James Driggers, who said construction workers and equipment would be able passing by. Safety is the key, Mr. Driggers told commissioners, adding that a good conservative estimate for the reopening of the road is mid-May. He also said that large layers of clay had been found in the excavation process and that detourmore easily remove the unsuitable material without delaying completion of the project. I could give you a better product by closing the road, he assured commissioners. If closing the road means DOT can build a better bridge, said Commissioner Adam Giddens, It makes sense to me to close the road. Others agreed. The request was granted unanimously after detour would not pose any sigconcerns. Mr. Driggers said he realizes some people wont appreciate the inconvenience of having to drive a longer distance around the construction area. But its for their safety and the safety of the construction workers on the site, he said. Besides, he said, if the road delayed possibly just as much because lane closures would be retime. The project began earlier this year to replace the old bridge, which many considered dangerously narrow, with a new span measuring 47 feet in width and straddling the south prong of Little St. Marys River. The new structure will include two, 12-foot-wide travel lanes and two 10-foot-wide shoulders. Nearly all of the huge concrete pilings necessary to support the massive weight of the new span have been driven deep into the ground and contractors have begun setting girders on top of the pilings, Mr. Driggers said. Soon, they will begin the job of pouring concrete to form the road bed for the new bridge. After the next phase of construction is completed in May, traffic will be allowed to drive across the new bridge and the old span will then be removed. The project also includes widening and resurfacing of 3,420 feet of County Road 125, which will include paved shoulders on each side, on the north and south approaches to the bridge. Mr. Driggers said the new bridge will remain a solid structure that should serve Baker County well for at least the next 50 years or more. Long after Im dead and gone it will still be holding up, he said. In other business the commission: sure of Barber Road, a narrow, winding county road that has become a popular short cut for many motorists between SR 121 and the Walmart on State Road 228 in Macclenny. Residents in the area have pleaded with commissioners to close the road, half of which is dirt and the other half paved, because of increasing trafJames Bennett, the DOTs urban transportation development administrator, told commissioners that should remain open. It is a public roadway to serve adding that the road helps keep local motorists from getting on I-10 at SR 121 and traveling to the next exit, SR 228, to reach Walmart. He said that in the long term interest of the county, a better solution would be to extend Barber Road due east to SR 228 along a new route from where the road pavement now ends.

ursday, December 22, 2011 T B C P Page 5 MIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF The City of Macclenny will solicit applications next month from lowto moderate-income assistance to repair or completely renovate substandard dwellings under a new federally-funded Housing Assistance Plan. Money to fund the upgrades will come from a $700,000 Community Development Block Grant, which was approved several months ago. The program would have been started already sent the proposed Housing Assistance Plan back to the city for a wording revision. The City Commission approved the revised plan the evening of December 13 two months after the city sent the original plan to the Department of Economic Opportunity for approval. Melissa Thompson, assistant to the city manager, said a DEO administrator sent the plan back to the city with a recommendation to add language making it clear that the grant money is not to be used to rehabilitate rental properties. Mayor Gary Dopson asked at the beginning of last weeks commission meeting if the additional language was recommended or demanded? It was strongly suggested, said City Manager Gerald Dopson, the mayors brother. The new language reads: A rental rehabilitation program will not be included as part of the Citys Housing Assistance Plan. The word not is in boldface type and underlined. citys intention to offer any of the money for rental repairs and they thought that was made pretty clear in the original wording of the plan. The new language immediately follows the following sentence in the original document: The rehabilitation units to be assisted are currently owner occupied. Owner occupied, to me, says I own it and I live in it, said Mrs. Thompson. But she (the DEO administrator) wanted it to be In any event, the city has complied with the states recommendation and the plan now is expected to receive the states approval. The next step will be to advertise the program and seek applicants. Depending upon how far the money stretches and how extensive some of the rehabilitation projects are, a minimum of 12 dwellings must receive funding assistance, Mrs. Thompson said. Parrish and Associates Inc., a hired in September to administer the grant program for the city. Consultants will review all applications and determine each ones priority based upon a number of factors, including the types of repairs needed. Other criteria include: shall be ranked higher than lowto-moderate income households. wood frame, mobile home and manufacture housing will be ranked equally. ly head of household, a handicapped individual living in the home, and families of five or more members with at least one child under the age of 12 shall be given preference. title to the property, or be up to date with their mortgage payments. ble for funding assistance if they are behind in their payments for utilities, taxes, or garbage collection bills. Mayor Dopson said similar grant programs in the past have and its residents. They have helped us bring all areas of the city that were once blighted up to standards in terms of infrastructure, paving, sidewalks and housing, he said. Whereas other grants have been allocated for a mixture of purposes, such as water and sewer utility improvements, streets and storm water drainage, this new grant is earmarked 100 percials said.

Jamie Lee Barton, 25, entered no contest pleas during the sentencing hearing that afternoon, and tearfully spoke to the judge of his remorse in the death of close friend Jason Lee (Jake) Hodges, 23, in a one-vehicle accident on a private hunting lease the evening of July 20, 2007. Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered him onto a 15-year probation with drug offender sanctions and suspended his drivers license for three years.

Mr. Barton maintained early es was driving the pickup, and when the vehicle ran off the road and overturned on a deep shoulin the passenger seat. FHP maintained the position of Mr. Hodges, who received the fatal injuries when crushed as his body was partially ejected, discounted Mr. Bartons version of events. The investigation nonetheless concluded the evidence was inconclusive as to who was driving. The defendant ran from the scene about 3.5 miles to the residence of an uncle on SR 121 and called his parents before returning to the scene. He was then taken to Fraser Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. His blood alcohol level measured more than four hours after the 10:30 pm accident was .082, drunk. He admitted to troopers at the scene that both he and Mr. Hodges had been drinking, and they noted he smelled of alcohol. The blood alcohol level of the victim was about twice what the Judge Rosier also ordered Mr. Barton to participate in a MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) panel on the impact of accidents like his, and to submit handwritten copies of the obituaries of 27 persons who died when their church bus was struck by a drunk driver in Kentucky in May, 1988.

You cant make that up, said Kerry Dunlavey, health department director, last week. Well do our best to keep as many services as we can. Well be trying to work harder, better and leaner. The Florida Department of Health has asked the county department to start formulating a workforce reduction plan for its review to help the local agency meet future revenue projections, Ms. Dunlavey said. The process is paperwork intensive, she said, and could take 30 to 90 days to complete. Ms. Dunlavey attributed the lack of revenue to budget cuts by the state legislature, the loss of Medicaid clients and resulting revenue due to turnovers of Medicaid managed care providers and dwindling grant funds.

We are available online at www.bakercountypress.comT B C PPage13DECEMBER 22, 2011 Former Wildcat football defensive guru Jami Rodgers was unveiled as the new head coach of the Suwannee County Bulldogs on December 16 in Live Oak. Rodgers, who has been coaching with Bobby Johns at Bacon County High in Alma, Georgia, will take the reins of a team rich in tradition. The Bulldogs won four straight state titles under head coach Mike Pittman, but have fallen on hard times recently. This years Bulldogs were 1-9 under head coach Willie Spears and 5-15 the past two years. Defensively the Bulldogs were a mess, one of the reasons that SHS Principal Ted Roush picked Rodgers. Rodgers led a Wildcat defense that was one of the best in North Florida. Under his tutelage the 2008 Cats held opponents to a 120-yard per game average. Equally as important to Roush was the fact that in 2009 Rodgers defensive unit stopped a 13 game for the Madison Cowboys, a team the Bulldogs regularly face. When Johns left BCHS for Milton High School, Rodgers went with him, and followed Johns to Alma where they posted with Bacon High. It was a huge step for Bacon High, which had previously had but two other seven-win seasons in its 60-year history. Rodgers had a number of other head coaching options but chose Suwannee for its tradition and the fact that it is close to home. Rodgers will bring the enthusiasm, character and coaching experience necessary to begin bringing our program back to prominence, SHS Athletic Director Hunter Abercrombie stated at the press conference. After graduating from BCHS, Rodgers played baseball at JU where he got a bachelors degree in business. Rodgers main focus will be pulling the team together after a demoralizing season. He is used to that, as he and Johns turned around a Wildcat squad that was winless when they took it over. He will start with team building. In todays everyone look at me Im the star sports world mentality, the most important concept of team sports has been lost the team, said Rodgers.PHOTO COURTESY OF CHRISTINA AND ROBERT CARTERChampionship medalsSix youths (shown above) from Baker County garnered four silver and ve bronze medals at the North American Grappling Associations ( NAGA) Pan-Am Grappling Championship December 17 in Kissimmee, FL.

Chelsey Ruise continued her scoring streak, with 24 points to lead all scorers. The Cats took a 30-17 edge into the locker room and continued to build on it into the third period. The Cats put the game away in the third period, out scoring Snyder 26-10 to seal the game. Coach Aaron Summers again was able to rest many of his starters through most of the second half.

ursday, December 22, 2011 T B C P Page 15Wildcat quarterback Thomas Sirk signed a letter of intent on December 14 to attend and play football at Duke University. The signing took place during a pep rally in the BCHS gym. Sirk, who played a number of positions for the Wildcats over his career at BCHS, hopes to play quarterback for the Blue Devils. He certainly has all the tools. He is 6 and 210 pounds pocket, he is a very effective runcult to bring down. When teams focused on shutting down his passing, he helped win games with his feet. He had several 100-yard rushing games for the Wildcats last season. He finished the season with 1018 rushing yards placing him second on the team in rushing behind Falon Lee (1082 yards). Duke is interested in his size and throwing ability. Sirk has a 68 percent completion rate, hitting 141 of 207 passes for BCHS last season. He had 26 touchdowns and turned in a quarterback rating of 127. Sirk averaged 209 yards passing per game and threw for 2303 yards. The Wildcat faithful hope that the varsity basketball team has finally turned the corner. The Cats are riding a three-game win streak going into the Florida First Coast Classic (see related story), and won two of those games this past week with home victories over Baldwin and Interlachen. The wins gave the Cats a 3-5 games. Coach Charles Ruise was upbeat and promised his team would surprise people. It was sweet retribution for the Wildcats to beat the Indians, who had hammered BCHS in Baldwin 61-44 and dominated all aspects of the game early this season. The Cats returned the favor on December 13 with a 65-55 pasting of Baldwin. For much of the game it was a nip and tuck affair with both teams trading basket for basket. BCHS got the early edge with three-point shots from Jesse Gardner and Cameron Mack to give them a slim 12-10 lead at the BCHS continued to get solid minutes from all of their starters and despite trading shots with BCHS went into halftime with the slimmest of leads at 25-24. They slowly edged ahead in the third period as Gardner nailed two more three-pointers. Marcus Gamble kept it close for Baldwin as he shot his way to a game high 21 points. The Cats broke the game open of his 17 points and the Wildcats out scored Baldwin 26-20 to seal the win. Gamble led all scorers with 21. Mack led the way for Baker with 17 and Gardner had 13. Charles Ruise Jr. stepped up his scoring with 9 points. Daryl Johnson had 9 for the Cats as 10 of 12 players got on the score sheet for BCHS. rolling with a 71-49 rout of the Interlachen Rams. The game started close with both teams trading buckets and the score knotted at 14 all at the ter. But Daryl Johnson came alive with six big points in the paint in the second period and BCHS went on a 12-1 run. The swarming Wildcat defense turned the ball over a lot as Ruise went to his inside game. Interlachen shook it off at halftime and played even in the third period. The Wildcats committed some pesky fouls and the Rams were laser-like in their foul shooting, hitting 10 of 12 from the free throw line. Free throws were just about all that the Rams could manage in the second half, however, as BCHS went wild in the final period, hitting 29 points. Johnson led all scorers with 17 points. Ruise had his best game of the year with 15 points, including a pair of threes. Gardner hit for 10 and Sean Fogurty, Johnny Lamb and Mack all contributed 8 points.
