COVERING BAKER COUNTY SINCE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings Police arrested a Glen St. Mary man and charged him with forcing his way into a north county res idence during daylight hours on February 4 and stealing hundreds of dollars in currency. Jeffrey Perryman, 30, has a criminal record that includes simi lar offenses and is cur rently on probation. He was arrested on February 6 after deny ing involvement in the burglary at the home of Eulis Yarbrough on Eulis Lane off CR 127 north. Mr. Perryman was interviewed by Sgt. Brad Dougherty after he and Jessi ca Barnwell, 23, of Sanderson were taken into custody at the American Inn on South 6th in Macclenny. Sgt. Dougherty said the suspect ended the collected incriminating statements from other witnesses. Mr. Yarbrough re ported the burglary at mid-afternoon on Feb ruary 4, and told Deputy Matt Yarbrough he was lured away from the residence by Ms. Barnwell, with whom he is acquainted. He said she arranged to meet him for lunch that day in Glen St. Mary, then telephoned to switch the location to a Macclenny restaurant, a tactic the victim believes bought time for the burglary. Deputy Yarbrough said a door was forced open to gain entry and the interior ran -JOEL ADDINGTONen en NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA anemic economy, job losses and the high price of hay and feed have all conspired to leave many horse owners with no choice but to give up their animals. Baker County Animal Control recently took in five horses after working with their owner for sever al months to ensure they remained healthy and well fed, said the departments director Georgia Monfort last week. We told her dont get yourself in trou ble, you know when you cant afford these animals. Dont let them sit out there and starve, Mrs. Monfort recalled. The owner phoned animal control in early January asking for help. You have people who call and say some bodys starving their horses, said the ani mal control director. But a lot of times its just a lack of knowledge. Theyre not trying to starve them, but they dont know how to care for them properly. They need at least one acre of open land per animal. Mrs. Monfort said she tries to educate new horse owners about the large amount of food the animals need. Theyre literally eating machines. They eat 24 hours a day, she said. Mrs. Monfort, a horse lover herself, found a home near Mud Lake Road for one of the abandoned horses and three more went to horse rescues. A rescue in Bradford County took two and Gallop Horse Rescue of North Flor ida on Arnold Rhoden Road sheltered the third, a female thoroughbred quarter horse cross named Dakota. The final horse that arrived in early January, a 13-year-old Arabian quarter horse cross named Freckles, is located at Mrs. Monforts north county property. Mrs. Monfort moved two of the horses to her residence because she feared hunt ers or others residents near the animal shelter on Steel Bridge Road could mistak enly shoot them. She said Freckles needs an intermediate or experi enced rider. Shes got too much piss and vinegar in her for a beginner, said Mrs. Monfort. at least a place at area rescues. Ive been calling rescues, but everybodys full, she said. Such circumstances have become rather common in recent years and months, espe cially after a dry winter.JOEL ADDINGTONen en NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker County Sheriffs ty jail recently, using the refur bished facility adjacent to the courthouse on a limited basis to hold inmates awaiting court appearances. The old jail, formerly known as the Baker County Detention Center, sat vacant for two-anda-half years after the sheriffs office moved to the 512-bed complex north of Macclenny on SR 228. Then late last month, the de partments corrections division mates back to the facility since it closed in the summer of 2009 for the weekly court docket. small with only three inmates, corrections division chief Maj. John Finley said this week 30 to 45 detainees are expected on a regular basis. He said some 15 prisoners were transferred the morning of February 7 from the new county jail for morning court hearings and another group of similar size arrived later for the after noon court session. They were held in one of the former dorms that measures about 500 square feet with benches, tables and a television. As the defendants cases were called, they were led up house where two holding cells are located just outside the courtroom. The new holding area en of the facilitys total area be hind bars. Maj. Finley said his department added a bench to the holding area and sealed up the bathroom because its drain was not functioning. Its a dinosaur, he said of the facility, originally built in the 1970s and expanded in later decades. Our job was a few days work inventorying all the keys and searching the place, just mak ing sure its safe and secure be fore we started bringing people in there, he said. Previously, as many as 16 inmates were held in the twin courthouse holding cells. Each cell has a toilet and bench, but are much smaller than the new holding area at about 100 square feet combined. You could have a rowdy per son in the courthouse and youd have no place to put them, said Maj. Finley. And at times, he said, the cells became so crowd ed they would start to stink up the whole courthouse. In general, more space makes inmates more docile, which in turn means fewer headaches for guards, he ex plained. It helps the judges. It doesnt take much to crowd the itty bitty cells at the court house, said the major. Renovations at the old jail consisted of roof, plumbing, electrical, air-conditioning and security repairs and upgrades.

They protested that Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier erred grievously in July when she awarded custody of Miranda Wilkerson, formerly of Glen St. Mary, to Donald Ray Coleman of St. George, GA. Mr. Coleman is not the childs biological father. He was mar ried to Mirandas late mother Trista when the girl was born in July, 2007. A month later, Mrs. Coleman died in a vehicle accident in north Baker County. The couple had three oth er daughters, all of whom re mained in the custody of their father. The rub, according to the childs grandmother Rita Man ning of Macclenny, was that Mr. Coleman is a registered sex of fender. Plus, Ms. Manning said, she had been caring for the child since birth. In a series of twists that turned the cus tody dispute into a made for the media story, the childs biological fa ther James Larkey Wilkerson of Macclenny, filed for custody of Mi randa after Judge Rosier awarded it to Mr. Coleman. Add to that the fact that Mr. Colemans sex of fender status is rooted in his re lationship with the late mother when she was but 14 years of age. Her mother, Ms. Manning, approved of the union. So, whats the status of the case now? In general, the tide has turned in favor of the judge, who was maligned by the grandmother, her family and in the media.

Page 2 T B C P ursd ay, February 9, 2012 I had an interesting conver sation driving in to Jacksonville to see a movie on recently. Dick and Carmean Johnson and Chuck and Barbara Ritchy were joining Kelley and myself in see ing The Iron Lady and we got to talking about shopping. Dick hates to shop. He says I drag him all over the place looking for something I could have gotstore I visited. I feel the same way, I added. I think its a fundamental differ ence between men and women. Here we go again, said Kel ley. All Im saying is that a man store she visits and then go to better bargain. Thats not true, said Carthree. Does Kelley ever buy some thing to return it? Buy it to return it? I dont understand. Sure, said Kelley. Ill re turn something if I think I dont like it. Thats not what I mean, said Dick. What Dick means, said Carmean, is that I will buy something knowing Im going return it. I had to think about that for a minute. Even now, after a couple of days, I still dont fully under stand the concept. Let me get this straight, you buy something you already know you dont want? Thats right. Umm okay, but why buy that you dont want it? I might change my mind. Oh. Okay. I guess that sort of made sense, though Im not sure a guys mind works that way. But then I dont like to shop. Not all guys are that way, however, which I found out when I brought up that topic. I dont mind shopping, said Chuck. But I have to have a rea son. I dont do it for entertain ment. Another difference between men and women. Many women and only a handful of men shop for entertainment. They shop for the shopping experience. When they are shopping for enter tainment, they usually shop in groups. These entertainment groups often buy very little. They are there to talk and eat and social ize, looking in windows and trying on clothes. The opposite of these enter tainment groups are the shop ping packs. Like wolves hunting prey, they are hunting bargains wherever they are to be found. Women often shop in packs on Black Friday, scouring stores for the perfect sale price. Like a wolf pack, you dont want to get in their way when they are on the prowl. They usu ally work together, unless they both want the same thing. Then there can be snarling, but in the end the alpha wolf, the leader of the pack, will get the bargain. Youll also see lone wolves during bargain hunting, but they are more rare. I like to shop, but I have to have a goal, reiterated Chuck. The other day Barbie said she just had to have a new pair of shoes and I was prepared to shop all day until she found them. Thats a good husband, said Kelley. Bob refuses to shop for shoes. I have to draw the line some where. Well the problem was that after four hours Barbie wanted to give up and go home. Really? I said, but you had to have new shoes. Why are we stopping when you havent found new shoes? The mission is not accomplished. Exactly, I said. You cant hang that Mission Accom plished banner on the aircraft carrier until the war is won. Ask President Bush. Right. If you have to have it then you have to continue the mission until it is completed. Women dont think that way. Exactly, said Barbara. We know that we can always go back later. But the exact same stuff will still be there. Nothing will have changed. Our mind might have changed. The three guys just looked women all nodded in agreement. After close to 30 years of marriage it is clear to me that in some respects women are still as big a mystery to me as when I was 14 years old. LETTER TO THE EDITOR The New York Giants, who actually play and practice in New Jersey, won the Super Bowl in Indianapolis last week. But who cares, right? Its all about the commercials.

Macclenny Ave., Suite 11 | Mid-Towne Center in Tallahassee last month upheld Judge Rosiers awarding of custody to Mr. Coleman. It affirmed without comment that she fol lowed state statute in giving the child to the man married to her mother when she was born. Late last year, Judge Rosier rejected the paternity-based ap peal by Mr. Wilkerson, whose re lationship with the late mother was the cause of Mr. Coleman fil ing for divorce. The judges reasoning, indi rectly affirmed by the separate appeals court ruling, was that Mr. Wilkersons claim as the bi ological father does not trump what Florida law requires judges to do award custody to the par ent married to the mother at the time of the babys birth. Mrs. Manning, who was placed on probation in 2007 for child neglect due to acquiescence on her teen daughters affair with Mr. Coleman, declined to com ment on the appeals court ruling this week on advice of her attor ney. Weve asked the court for its reasoning in rejecting that ap peal, so we wont have any com ment until we hear from them, said Joseph Manniko, the Mac clenny attorney representing Mrs. Manning. The courts decision on January 19 was delivered per curiam, which means it did not go into detail. The grandmother initially filed for adoption of the girl, trig gering the custody petition by Mr. Coleman and the judges rul ing that brought the case to the publics attention. The grand mother sought an airing of the case in the media when she contacted a Jacksonville television station in July. From there, the case led off in other directions, including a court petition by First Coast News to be allowed into an Au gust 10 court hearing it believed was on a criminal contempt matter rather than an adoption, which are closed to the public. Mr. Coleman requested the hearing on a motion to hold Mrs. Manning in contempt for speaking to the media about the case. She was never cited for contempt but complied with the ban after the two-hour closed session. The television station ap pealed Judge Rosiers ruling de nying entry to the hearing. The appeals court dismissed it. In another fallout from the Wilkerson case, Mr. Manniko and his law partner/wife Barba ra Baris sought to remove Judge Rosier from 18 other cases pend ing before her, arguing their re lationship with her soured over, among other things, the judges accusation that they orchestrated the media publicity blitz. The at torneys denied doing so. The appeals court refused to remove the judge from their cas es, responding that the attorneys failed to present evidence of bias that rises to the level that would justify taking her off other, pend ing cases. Judge Rosier after the flareup of negative publicity, removed herself from any further deliber ations involving Miranda Wilkerson or other related parties. Circuit Judge Toby S. Monaco of Gainesville was appointed in her place.

Tobias. County Probation, Inc., which serves Baker, Bradford and Union coun ties. Sheriff Joey Dobson said this week the new holding area simply means a slight change in where inmates are located before appearing in court. It did not save his agency any money, he said. While some members of the public may view the remaining jail space an untapped resource, Sheriff Dobson said using it for anything more than a temporary holding area would require substantially more resources. He said lighting and drainage problems remain throughout much of the building and additional work to meet state corrections codes and staff the facility with guards, cooks and nurses would mean a substan tial investment. From page 1Jail now a holding areaTheres no grass to feed them now, noted Mrs. Monfort, add ing that drought conditions in Texas cattle country are pulling Florida hay west and causing a shortage here. said. Susan Barnes, who operates the roughly 15-acre Gallop Horse Rescue near Sanderson, can at test to the great demand for plac es to send abandoned horses. Since last March, she said her rescue has taken in 20 horses, ed by authorities. The majority of people are just in economic stress. Its not abuse or neglect ... They really love the animal and they call up in tears because they have to give it up, said Ms. Barnes. With a dozen horses already at the rescue, shes now planning to accept seven more during the coming week. We are in desperate need of adopters, fostering homes, dona tions and volunteers to meet this incoming challenge, she said. It has been gut-wrenching to hear people on the phone who have lost everything and now have to surrender their horse on top of all else. She estimated the rescue re ceives about four calls a week from people searching for some place to send their horses. Ms. Barnes keeps a list of peo ple interested in particular types of horses and contacts them when one comes in. Sometimes I can take them, but sometimes I cant, she said. When that happens, I have a group of fosters I try to place them with. Another rescue operation, Hidden Springs in Marianna, re cently received 11 horses in a sin gle day, Mrs. Monfort said. A review of county animal control records for the last three years showed a spike in the num ber of horses seized or surren which ended September 30, 2010. That year 10 horses arrived at the shelter. Three went to res cues, three were adopted by pri vate individuals and four were returned to their owners. The following fiscal year, 2010-11, animal control corralled two donkeys wandering near the fairgrounds and the total for this all came from the same owner last month. From page 1 sacked.

An acquaintance of the sus pect, Daryl Norman, told Depu ty Rodney Driggers he saw Mr. Perryman in the vicinity of Eu lis Lane that afternoon and Ms. Barnwell told him the suspect was in the area meeting with the mother of his children.

Charlie Dean (R-Citrus County) for his efforts on behalf of state correc tization of 29 prisons in south Florida. I along with many of my and members of Teamsters Lo cal 2011 went to Tallahassee last week and listened to debates on privatization. I can assure County that we have a strong ad vocate and ally in Sen. Dean. Throughout the recession state workers have received no pay raises and watched their pensions cut. Our tax collars shouldnt fund a wealthy CEOs retirement over fair wages to Thanks to Sen. Dean for put ting interests of the working men and women in our state prisons who risk their safety and well-being to protect the public over the big money interests of the private prison corporations and their CEOs. Sgt. John Bellovich MacclennyThank you Gibre George. If youll permit a white guy to write about this subject, how pleasing it is to see that some younger black people arent fond of the term African-American when referring their race. If a two-word combo ever equaled the sound of long fin gernails dragged down a chalk board, that is it. An Associated Press article appearing in Mondays edition of The Florida Times-Union credited Mr. George, who lives in Hollywood, FL, with starting the Facebook page Dont Call Me African-American. It just doesnt sit well with a younger generation of black people, the 38-year-old entrepreneur was quoted as saying. Apparently a lot of people agree, and one can only hope that they are black people, both young and old. Itll have to be blacks themselves who toss this offensive term into the ash heap. The article points out that blacks in America have been called various names over the years nigers (from the Latin and the root for the now toxic N word), Negro (from the Spanish), colored (as in separate drink ing fountains) and in the 1960s, black and Afro-American. In the late 1980s, Jessie Jack son a huckster and shakedown artist with few equals in mod ern times was credited with launching African-American into the language mainstream. (Mr. Jacksons association with the term should be enough to turn off the younger generation, but well see.) So the dreaded term made it into the lexicon, fueled by the political correctness climate that has since wormed its way into all public language. The media, of course, jumped right on it, refer ring to this day without any tinge of irony to white people as white and black people as AfricanAmerican. My position, and the reason you never see A-A used in this newspaper, has always been: If a persons race is important to a news story, then it should be get this a matter of race only. In the case of whites and blacks, that generally means the color of our skin. An example: when the cops are looking for someone, that person is described as a white male driving a red pickup or a black man wearing... On the other hand, one never refers to a persons race when it shouldnt make a difference. A Glen St. Mary man retired from the school district after 45 years. Who gives a damn what race he is. There are exceptions: A Mac clenny woman, the first black school principal hired in Bak er County, has retired after 45 years. In this case, the persons race is notable because, the read er can accurately infer, there was a time when blacks werent hired as school principals. If race matters, we say so. Af rican-American is not a race, and Mr. George makes that point in the AP article. In fact, and this makes me be lieve that Jessie Jackson indeed is at the root of this dreaded des ignation, African-American is divisive just like Mr. Jackson and his generation of civil rights dinosaurs. My hope is that younger (and many older ones according to a 2011 NBC/ Wall Street Journal poll) blacks want to be known as Americans, and theyre going to be making their voices heard more in the coming years. We are all Americans, with no hyphen.Put African-American in the ash heapLauds Dea n for stand on privatizing Subscribe to our E editionwww.bakercountypress.com

This time, board members praised the school for a nationally-recognized drama program, a somewhat unique culinary arts curriculum and for embarking on a new idea using solar energy technology as an instructional tool to emphasize science and math. It was the schools drama pro gram that garnered the boards the meeting at New Jerusalem Church of God in Christ in Margaretta. I want to say how proud we are of our drama program and how they continue to be recog nized year after year, said board chairman Dean Griffis, noting that Baker County High is the only high school in the nation in vited annually to a drama festival in Arkansas. Thats what brought the schools drama class to the boards attention this week. Prin cipal Tom Hill asked the board to approve a request from the schools drama director, Bob Gerard, for a group of students to travel to the Petit Jean Performance Festival in Morrilton, AK. The festival is in its 28th year and BCHS has been attending for almost 20 years, Mr. Ge rard wrote in a letter to Mr. Hill requesting approval for the trip. We are the only high school in the country invited to attend this prestigious festival and it is an in valuable learning tool for our stu dents and a way to spotlight them for potential scholarships. This year we will perform a one-act play as well as do individ ual acting scenes, he said. We thank you and the school board for the past support. When he was asked why Baker County High is the only school in the country to be invited every year to the event, Mr. Hill said it was simple: Were the best. He said the schools drama students have competed and won against college drama students in the past, including those at Loui siana State University and other institutions of higher learning. The group goes to Arkansas the last week in April in a school bus, and will pay for lodging and registration at the festival. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson announced that some of the drama students will be appear ing in the upcoming Broadway in Baker production at the high school Thursday through Sunday this week and next week. I have a cameo appearance the second weekend and its go ing to be quite a surprise, she said, declining to give any clue about her role other than to say she would not be singing. Up next came the subject of food, or rather the art of preparing and serving food by students in the high schools culinary arts program. The board approved a collab orative agreement with Florida State College at Jacksonville that will enable students in grades 9-12 to earn college credits to ward an associates degree in culinary management while earn school. The proposed Career Path ways Culinary Articulation Agreement was submitted by Ann Watts, director of career and adult education. In her proposal, she said the program will focus on high wage, high skill and high need workforce areas. Board chairman Griffis praised the unusual curriculum at the school as a valuable careershaping program, noting that not every high school has a culi nary arts program. Next, the board approved a proposed agreement between the district and Florida Power & Light Co. to install solar panels at BCHS and provide computer software and curriculum mate rial for a Photovoltaics (PV) for School Program in 2012-13. Superintendent Raulerson said the program will promote the states new mission to empha size STEM Science, Technolo gy, Engineering and Mathematics in high schools. Other school districts, in cluding Suwannee County, have joined ranks with FP&L to launch the program and have experi enced very positive results, Mrs. Raulerson said. The agreement calls for FP&L to design, install, own and main after which time ownership of the equipment will transfer to the school district. David Davis, district director of teaching and learning, said the solar panels will produce about 5 kilowatts of electricity, which he said would probably power two classrooms. But the intention, he said, is not to trim the schools utility bill, but rather to give stu dents an opportunity to learn more and get a deeper under standing of this area of science. Mr. Hill, noting that FP&L has been a very good business part ner for us, said the program will help students in many ways, in cluding the development of critical thinking. It can be imbedded into every science class we have, he said. These are the hands-on opportu nities that our students have been missing. In other business, the board: in compliance with state classsize mandates, while allowing some classes to minimally exceed the cap due to slight enrollment increases. Marcelle Richardson, executive director of support services, said state law allows districts to exceed the class-size require ments temporarily if the district school board determines that it is impractical, educationally un sound, or disruptive to student learning to not assign a new student to a class that is already There are no elementary classes over the cap, Mrs. Rich ardson said.

Commissioner Gordon Crews, who as sumed the leadership role in November, said during the board meeting on February 7 that he wants every department head and consti get by with less revenue than they have in the current budget. Were not going to try to tell them how to run their departments, he said, adding, how ever, that it is the boards responsibility to adopt a balanced budget and thats what the board will do. To accomplish that, he said, he will call for a percent cut across the board, even if it means employee layoffs or other drastic mea sures. Nothings off the table, Mr. Crews said. Were going to balance the budget. Thats one of the reasons he said he wants to get the budget meetings started in April, a little earlier than usual, so that everyone will have ample time to work together and share ideas. Between now and then, the chairman said, he wants a thorough review of the employee insurance program so that insurance costs wont play a detrimental role in his plan to cut the budget by 10 percent. Were going to shoot for a zero percent increase in insurance premiums, Mr. Crews said, noting that insurance costs are a major factor on the expenditures side of the ledger. He said he wants the insurance review com mittee to strive for a plan that will allow for that zero percent cost increase. If employees are adamant about wanting insurance provisions that would result in a premium increase, so be it, he said, but em ployees would have to accept higher premi ums. The chairmans comments presumably were received favorably by other commission ers, since they all pushed for county-wide bud get cuts last year before ultimately adopting a the previous year. In recent months all commissioners have stated steadfast opposition to any further withdrawals from the reserve fund to balance the county budget. In other business during the board meet ing, which began at 5 pm, commissioners: road department and solid waste members of the Florida Council of Industrial and Public Employees, Local 2120, for the period October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012. No pay raises were included in the contract, the same as all other county employees this year. The major changes in the contract, accord ing to the county manager, included a provi sion adding a union member to the countys insurance committee, agreeing to reimburse their commercial drivers license versus a Class E license, and reducing the term of the con tract from three years to one year. Other provisions remain the same, such as 12 paid holidays a year, seniority rights, main taining a standard work week of four consecu tive 10-hour days Monday through Thursday, and the accumulation of personal leave from days a year for those who have been employed by the county for over 15 years. sons recommendation to select Bentley Ar chitects and Engineering Inc., of Longwood, to do the design and engineering work on a transportation center in conjunction with the Baker County Council on Aging.

E-books are becoming in creasingly popular, Ms. Bird said. Amazon and Barnes & Noble sell e-books for their devices and report a big business. Weve started low key, but as people become more aware of the service and buy ereader devices I expect the numbers to grow. April Teel, director of the Emily Taber Pub lic Library in Macclenny, said shes not sure she would ever use an e-reader, unless some one gave her one as a gift, because she enjoys reading real books and feeling the pages on her hands. But she anticipates the number of e-book enthusiasts to grow. I think its part of the librarys future from now on, Ms. Teel said, adding that many peo nient. Theyre very light and thin, she said.

And you can log in from anywhere to get another book as long as you have a valid library card. Some people will like the e-book format and others will not, Ms. Bird said, adding that its a personal preference, sort of like a hard back copy versus a paperback copy. Theres also the initial cost of buying an ereader to consider, though Smart phones can be used as e-readers, too, and many people already have them, she said.

ursday, February 9, 2012 T B C P Pa ge 9 Page 8 T B C P ursd ay, February 9, 2012 JOEL ADDINGTONen en NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comFour high school sophomores ventured to the 49th Annual Junior Science, Engineering and Humanities Symposium last week at the University of Florida to present a study on diabetes research they conducted in the classroom this school year. The young ladies from the health academy Kelsey Brown, Devon Burns, Sydni Starling and Sarah Farnesi were selected from 127 students in biology teacher Deirdre Riggs classes to attend the three-day event and share their conclusions. Ms. Riggs had her students pen a two-page paper about whether a rare form of diabetes called MODY (Maturity On set Diabetes in the Young), that shares characteristics of Type 2 diabetes more common in over weight adults, is inherited or caused by environmental factors like lifestyle and diet. exams and followed laboratory research partially funded by the university as part of a program to enrich high school science class es by incorporating more handson activities. Last summer, after an application process, Ms. Riggs was cho sen to attend a two-week training session at UF along with about 20 other Florida high school teachers. Her goal for the training was to develop a laboratory-based research project she could take back and implement in the class room. The university paid her worth of lab supplies to make the research project a reality. We could pick anything, Ms. Riggs said of the potential proj ects. Ms. Riggs decided to build her project around diabetes be cause hospitalization and death rates for the disease in Baker County are well above the state average. Plus, she said, shes got a background in health care af following graduation from Syra cuse University with a bachelors degree in biology. The whole idea is to promote research, she said of the sum outcome was to write a research proposal. Then we did all the labs there that I turned around and did with my students. After learning about the various types of diabetes and its prevalence among the population here, students turned to learning lab safety and proce dures while conducting the re search to uncover the root cause of MODY, which is usually diag nosed before age 25. Whats different here thats not happening in Orlando? asked Ms. Riggs. Thats the kind of stuff I wanted them to look at to see if its genetic or environ mental. Most of her pupils papers ar gued what Ms. Riggs expected that MODY is caused by a mix of heredity and lifestyle choices. The four girls selected to at tend the symposium, however, all took the same stand. While ones lifestyle can impact the dis ease positively or negatively, they argued, MODY is nonetheless traceable to the characteristics of ones DNA. During the three-day sympo sium at UF, January 28-30, the students were exposed to the campus, the universitys science programs and other high school students from around the state. I thought it went well, Ms. Riggs said upon their return. I ty was a little out shown though. I think the science curriculum at some of the other schools is a lot higher. Many of the students invit ed to attend came from private schools or magnet schools with more rigorous science and tech nology programs, Ms. Riggs said. Juniors and seniors attend ing the event presented their re search results as part of a judged competition to win scholarships and a trip to the National Junior Science and Humanities Sym posium. Sophomores, like the group from BCHS, and freshman presented their research as well, but not competitively. The four girls didnt know each other well before the trip, but said they became friends, bonding on the car ride south and enjoying late-night milk shakes. Ms. Riggs was in the hotel room next to us, so we just kind of had some girl time and talked and got to know each other, Ms. in Gainesville, which followed a pizza social. We really liked staying at the hotel because there was a SteakN-Shake on one side of the hotel and a McDonalds on the other side, she said. For much of the trip, the teens in with the rest of the students there. We kind of stuck out com pared to everybody else, said Ms. Burns. Once we got there everybody was dressed in suits and ties and we were just dressed casual. We still looked cute and stuff, but we kind of had our own little group. On the second day of the sym posium, the teens toured a num ber of labs at the campus and heard about topics that included climate change, ocean drilling and how ions are made. It was huge, Ms. Starling, also 16, said of the campus. Ev erybody was riding bikes to get around ... We even saw a guy on a unicycle. in front of their peers to review their research results. The girls pulled information from their papers to create a slide show. They described the experience as nerve racking. All of us were nervous when we got up there, said Ms. Farne si, 15. I felt my voice getting shaky and my hands shaking so I tried to hide them behind the podium and not make eye contact ... added Ms. Burns. Still, the girls felt they did pretty good, especially since they didnt practice the presenta tion beforehand. Seeing people going up there before us do it, we were really nervous, said Ms. Burns. They must have been used to it or something because they were at all, but everybody told us we did okay. Then we saw the peo ple who went after us, and they were brilliant people, but they could not speak up there. They were like uh, uh. So after that I we did. I think we did pretty good for Farnesi said. All four teens said they hope to return to the symposium next year as juniors to compete. One of the girls on the way home was saying how dumb it made her feel, but also how she wanted to try harder because she knows now what shes up against in terms of applying for colleg es and stuff like that, said Ms. Riggs, who also presented on her project to other teachers at the symposium. She characterized the diabetes project as semi-successful. Im very much like the girls, she said. I wish Id taken it more seriously. Because the middle school doesnt have a fullyequipped lab, we were more fo cused on lab safety and learning to use the equipment and less on the research. She hopes to improve on the project next year by covering ge netics more thoroughly and in viting a local healthcare profes sional to speak about diabetes, Ms. Riggs said.

Football players collected 171 As, 168 Bs, 142 Cs and only 48 Ds and 27 Fs during the se mester. Sulkowski was very pleased with the improvements. As a football program we pulled together as a staff and made a commitment to improving the academics here at Baker County High School, said the coach. When I ar rived the academic situation was awful in regards to our football student athletes and that was something that I knew we needed to immediately put an emphasis on. Sulkowski says that the coaching staff stresses aca demics on a regular basis. These young men need to know that someone is constantly monitoring their aca demic progress. On a daily basis we have constant con tact with about 8 percent of our student body, which is our football team. When they hear about it every day it sinks in and I believe that is where we are now, he said. He is particularly proud of the drop in ineligible play ers. Only two players were ineligible this school year, a drop from a two-year high of 15 in spring 2010. Football players are coming to school more, averaging only 3.58 days absent. The coach believes that the improvement in the athlet ic grades can have a positive effect throughout the school. I cant help but think that in some little way we have been part of the solution in improving our school grade, said Sulkowski. Athletes are natural leaders, so when a football player is focusing on the lesson being taught, it impacts other students in the class, just as if a football player was being a disruption, others in the class are more likely to do the same.
