COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF Two separate sand mining proposals totaling nearly 500 acres in Baker County were put on hold by the Baker County Commission on the evening of August 20 after the applicants withdrew their petitions to allow more time for reviews of the plans by regulatory agencies and a consultant for the county. The decision to postpone the matter was not received well by members of the audience, however, as dozens of opponents had come to the meeting on a rainy night hoping the plans would be rejected. I just think its a stalling tactic by the sand mines to give them more time to get all their things in order, said Pat Shannon, one of an estimated 6o-70 people in attendance at the meeting, which was held in the biggest courtroom at the coun ty courthouse because a large gathering was expected. I call for a vote up or down period! The majority of people are against the sand mines, Mr. Shannon said. There would be no vote that night, however, nor would the county accept a petition signed by residents urging denial of the mining proposals because the hearing, scheduled to begin at 6 pm, was cancelled during a regular commission meeting that began an hour earlier. In e-mails sent to County Manager C.J. Thompson earlier that afternoon, the two companies Old Castle Southern Group of Tampa and E.R. Jahna, Inc. of Lake Wales had been considered after the public hearing began. But about 5:15 pm, County Attorney Terry Brown anwithdraw their applications. He told them they could. At that point, Commission Chairman Gordon Crews announced that he knew a lot of people in the audience were interested in the issue but that the public hearing would have to be cancelled. Thats when Mr. Shannon stood and made his comments, which received no response from commissioners. Marcus Rhoden, a member of a citizens group that recently worked to defeat a proposed medical waste incinerator in the same Trail Ridge vicinity targeted for mining by E.R. Jahna, also was disappointed that the board would not accept a petition that he said contained the signatures of more than 2,000 residents county wide opposed to sand mining. We wanted to see a vote, Mr. Rhoden said. We wanted it Commissioners delayed voting on the mining projects in June after some board members said they had not heard enough information concerning potential impacts on local water resources to make a fully informed decision. grant zoning exceptions to allow mining operations on prop erty zoned for agricultural use, which generally prohibits such activity. County land development regulations require the applicants to obtain permits from the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which regulates surface water and wetland impacts, before mining operations begin. Thats where the process has stalled. Both agencies are seeking additional information, including the results of an extensive test well drilling and sampling program in accordance with state environmental standards. Old Castle is seeking a 20-year consumptive use permit from the water management district to withdraw roughly two million gallons daily from the lower Floridan Aquifer during day for the next 15 years. The company agreed to construct the well and do the required sampling, but only after the permit is issued. E.R. Jahna, in an application submitted to the water management district on August 7, is requesting a 20-year permit to withdraw 2.16 million gallons of water daily from the lower 15 years. The FDEP review will include an evaluation of potential impacts that the mining plans could have on the water table, wetlands and shallow wells, according to HSW Engineering in Tampa, an independent consultant hired by the county and paid for by the mining companies for a third-party evaluation of the proposals. HSW submitted two interim reports to the county on August 17, in which associate engineer Dean M. Mades noted the ongoing review process for both companies and stated that for environmental harm, primarily to nearby offsite wetlands; ings (waste material) storage and processing areas where process water, product and waste tailings will be stored; and violation of state water quality standards. Mr. Mades also made the following comments in his report: tential effects of mining on wetland hydrology and groundwater levels and lake stages associated with wetand dry-season ante cedent conditions.

Ive been watching the politi cal campaigns of Pres. Obama and Gov. Romney closely and Im thinking that I could do a better job for the country than either of them. Its not that I am particularBut Im troubled and thats no joke. Weve gotten to the point in party politics where there is no center. What I mean by that is that you have the left wing ultra-liberals on one side and the right wing ultra-conservatives on the other. And nobody in between. The liberals propose bills the conservatives call socialist. But its basically the same stuff JFK and LBJ did in the 60s. The conservatives call up the ghost of Ronald Reagan. But the truth is that Reagan was a moderate conservative who liked to delegate authority and if he were running for governor of California today, the Tea Party would call him a liberal and put up a candidate to run against him. A republic is based on compromise and nobody is willing to compromise because they think it makes them look weak. So here we are with Barack and me. Ive got to be able to do as good a job as these guys. I dont want to get all negative or anything theres enough of that going around. But lets look at my opponents. President Obama came in to the White House as a moder ate liberal on a wave of change. But, because of the struggling worldwide economy most of the change has been for the worse. Is this his fault? How should I know? His most memorable success was the killing of Osama Bin Laden and his most controversial proposal has been universal health care. Is he a socialist? Nah. Hes LBJ without the Vietnam War. You want real cries of socialism? Read some of the political cartoons and newspaper ar ticles from the 1930s. Franklin Roosevelt was called a socialist and a communist for instituting this crazy plan called Social Security. Its an interesting read. Mitt Romney was a moder ate as governor of Massachusetts and worked well with the Democrat legislature. His claim to fame was rescuing the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and his biggest controversy is some JESSICA PREVATT | S TAFF Its that time of year again a preK student so I pulled out my trusty old sunglasses. I didnt think it would be as hard the second time around but I discovered I was lying to myself. My baby doesnt even turn four until the end of August and I just dont think hes ready for school, but according to the State of Florida he is. What do they know? Then again, Ive been getting more and more disgusted with the state and the mandates for our local school board. Last year a program was started to allow students in fourth and complete math or reading through the virtual school at a sixth or seventh grade level. This year, the program was pulled. Where is that going to leave the students who opted to complete and passed the online course? Nobody seems to know and I guess we have to Then theres the speculation that because of the new performance pay system for teachers, schools will do away with top groups in the different grades. The reasoning is that a teacher of a top group class will be at a disadvantage because students wont make large enough learning gains because they already know so much. There needs to be allowances made for those teachers because it would not fair to the students who are in these classes. Several teachers have told me that if students in the top group were to be moved to a regular classroom they will not do as well. These students need the extra work a top group requires to keep them busy. My son is quite the social creature and would probably stay in trouble for talking/playing if he didnt have the class work to keep him busy. A lot more thought is warranted before this change becomes a done deal. We parents need to make sure we stay informed about decisions made at both the state and local level. If we continue to let things go and remain at the current status quo, its just going to get worse. Read up on what the Florida Department of Education is doing. Attend local school board meetings. Ask questions at the school. Our local teachers and administrators have always taken the time to address any concerns I and many other parents have, and they welcome yours. If there is something you arent happy with they can either work with you to solve the problem or point you in the right direction. Parents staying involved and working together can ensure our kids get the best education possible.

In a letter to the county manager dated August 20, Douglas Rillstone, a Tallahassee attorney representing E.R. Jahna, stated that his client was in the process of completing the analysis of whether there will be any localized effects on the water table as requested by these regulatory agencies, and will provide such analysis to HSW and these regulatory agencies. While we believe there will be a favorable outcome to our analyof such analysis as directed by the board. During the commission meeting this week Mr. Rillstone said E.R. Jahna will move forward with the permitting process and return to the board at a later date to resume its application for the required zoning exception. Dennis McClelland, general manager of Old Castles aggregates division, told the board and the audience during the commission meeting that his company was not trying to do any harm to Baker County. We want to be a good neighbor. He further stated that the companys calculations are correct that we would not have an effect on anybodys well. After the required state permits are issued he said he will return to the county for local approval. County Manager Thompson said afterward that he was surprised by the requests for withdrawal of the applications. When asked when he thought the matter might be brought back to the board, he shrugged his shoulders and said he had no idea. It could be two months or two years, I dont know, he said. Critics say theyre in it for the long haul. No matter how long it Were not giving up, Mr. Rhoden said. Were going back to neighborhoods throughout the county, knocking on more doors. Our goal is to make it 5,000 (signatures). He said he wanted to make it clear that the citizens group he represents is not anti-business, simply concerned about the countys limited natural resources. We dont want to be labeled as anti-industry, Mr. Rhoden said. We want to have industry in our county if its not going to be detrimental. But this (sand min ing) would be taking out so much of our natural resources for little or nothing back. Our biggest concern is the consumption of our drinking water and the affect on our wells. Weve talked to so many people in our county and we found less than half a dozen that were in favor of it, he said, adding that two of them worked for DuPont, which owns the land Old Castle plans to mine under a lease in the southeastern part of the county. Despite the technical reasons for the commissions decision to cancel the scheduled hearing this week, some residents left the People need to take a position. If they dont take a position I have to question their leader ship, said Mark Broughton who, along with his wife Allison have helped spearhead grassroots opposition to the incinerator and sand mining proposals. DuPont has been conducting mining operations for decades in Clay and Baker counties, but that company is in the business of extracting minerals from the earth, not sand, Mr. Broughton said. Theres a huge difference between them, he said. DuPont takes about 3 percent of the top soil and puts the rest back. Sand mining companies, he said, haul most of the material away in trucks, which creates adroads and highways, and leaves huge craters with high walls and water 125 feet deep. Clerk of Court Al Fraser said people continued to arrive at the courthouse until 6 pm or later expecting to attend a hearing that had been cancelled about 5:15 pm. Long after the meeting had been adjourned, they continued to mill around in front of the courthouse talking about what had happened, he said. About 6:15 pm I had somebody go down and put a sign on the front door, Mr. Fraser said. es was issued in early August for Hailey Dan, 20, of Macclenny, who sheriffs investigator Mike Hauge says is in Duval County jail charged with a theft from her grandmother in Jacksonville. Police say Ryan Taylor deposited a bogus $900 check into the Vystar account of ex-girlfriend Amber Goldsmith of Macclenny on July 29 after borrowing her bank card on the false premise that his was not operable. The check was written on an account that Mr. Taylor opened at TD Bank the previous day, and he then allegedly withdrew the maximum daily $500 from an ATM using the Vystar card. Investigator Hauge then confirmed that Mr. Taylor and Lauren Smith, 19, of Macclenny both opened TD accounts that day but deposited only $10 in them. Further investigation revealed that Mr. Taylor used the same card three times to obtain cash advances of $100 each at Walmart on July 29. He later admitted he spent the cash on clothing and a tattoo. Ms. Smith was identified as the girlfriend of Aaron Taylor, whose closed account at Wells Fargo Bank was used to issue checks for $400, $500 and worthless and deposited into his Vystar account. The bogus checks for $900 written by Ryan Taylor and Ms. Smith for deposit into their TD accounts were also frozen and they were unable to withdraw cash. Mr. Taylor also implicated Ms. Dan in the scheme, and said she participated in making out one of the $900 checks and completely walked (Aaron) Taylor through the process ... as she had done with him (Ryan). Investigator Hauge said further charges are possible as police unravel the trail of bad checks and bank records including surveillance videos at the ATM machines. In an unrelated fraud case reported to police the past week, a Macclenny woman reported she was being badgered by collection departments of several utilities and companies, apparently the result of bogus accounts opened using her personal information. One of them involved a $362 outstanding bill to Florida Power and Light owed on an account opened in her name. Others involve Verizon, Comcast and ATT. She reported the situation on August 15.

The gate to the minor league asked a county employee to unlock it and he refused. Another coach brought his mower to been kept up, and he also had to line it. I have several grandchildren who play ball and have traveled to games in other areas. I have never seen a facility as nasty as ours. Baker County only offers our kids the ball parks, so why cant they keep them clean, especially when they have free inmate labor? We have kids to be proud of, why should we be ashamed of the facilities? Why are the gates locked when this is a public recreation area and coaches practice teams there? Where does the money go? Sports help keep kids out of trouble, and this should be important to our commissioners. Barbara GibsonMacclennyBalleld rest rooms are nastyThe ideal alternative to Mitt, Barackof his business deals. Fear of losing has pushed him farther and farther away from the center toward the ultra-conservative right so that now he is basically unrecognizable to the guy who ran Massachusetts. A lot of the trouble isnt the folks behind the throne. Theres just so much money out there. Even in state politics, its the crazy money.

Resource Management is a Critical Value Oldcastle Southern Group is committed to the conservation of Baker Countys water resources. It is a core value of Oldcastle Southern Group to be good stewards of the environment by responsibly managing our nite natural resources. Our sand mining plants utilize state-of-the art technologies to minimize water consumption and maximize onsite water reuse and recycling. Water Sources The mine site will draw from a deep water source currently not used for residential or the City of Macclennys water supply. The sites water supply will come from the Lower Floridan aquifer. Well Water Usage Well water is most needed during the initial years of the mining operations. The vast majority of the well water usage is in the rst ve years. The water allocated for usage beyond year ve is intended for emergency purposes. Water Balance Conservation The sand mines proposed process plant is designed to be a closed loop operation that maximizes the amount of water recycled and reused onsite. Approximately 99.5% of all the water used in our process operations is reused or retained onsite The majority of the water not returned to the process will leave the plant in the material by way of truck.

Four years later, Mr. Payne and fellow BCDC board mem bers have yet to chart a course for most of the land surrounding the 20 acres occupied by the county I think weve just been dealing with the turnaround and getting BCDC off the ground rather than doing something innovative or progressive as it relates to what to do with the land, Mr. Payne said this week. He said he and BCDC president Todd Knabb, a real estate developer himself, both feel strongly about the need for a meeting among stakeholders to sit down and weigh our op tions. Id like to give some help to the taxpayers of the county in terms of bringing in some more revenue, Mr. Payne said, adding the land could be leased or sold to an entity not exempt from paying property taxes like the BCDC or local governments. The land was purchased for about $3 million, or $33,000 per acre. Mr. Payne conceded the acreage would not fetch that price today, but said, lets plan ahead and look at our options. During the last BCDC board of directors meeting in July, he urged the panel to begin strategic planning for what will occur on the extra property during next utes show. When I look at land, I see it as money. Instead of letting it be dormant, what can you do to make it pay for itself or make some money, he said. Mr. Knabb, however, is less eager to begin mapping any particular course of action. Instead he wants to keep the BCDCs options open until the real estate market rebounds. We bought a little extra property and were sitting on it ... Were not out looking for somebody to sell it to, said Mr. Knabb. He said if the board decided to sell off property, the proceeds would go toward paying down the corporations debt, not ben Were in the jail business, not the development business, declared Mr. Knabb. While BCDC hasnt sold land for commercial or residential uses, its traded or donated tracts for a variety of other purposes. to the Baker County Commission as repayment for $200,000 in seed money used to create the BCDC and borrow $45 million to build and startup the facility. The City of Macclenny received about 14 acres for sorely needed retention ponds in the northeast city as payment for utility-related debts. BCDC also donated use of a small parcel for a community garden that has since been shut down. Another tract is now home to an obstacle course used by law enforcement and corrections officers for training and conditioning. In addition, Mr. Knabb said he wants to continue employing the citizens of Baker County. The whole project was to put money in the countys pocket, he said. And the numbers are looking really good. Were right on track. In fact, at the board of direcpanel added about $300,000 in expenses to its budget for the a growing inmate population. Early this week the facility Major John Finley, chief of vision, reported to the board that the number of court cases for de tainees from Immigration and Customs Enforcement is leading to longer stays at the facility for those prisoners, the minutes show.

The board starts with a $24.7 million draft budget thats about $2.7 million smaller than the one adopted last fall and will attempt to balance it with revenues expected to total some $22.6 million, about $5.3 million less than the current years level. County Manager C.J. Thompson said this week he anticipates the county will spend every dollar in the current $27.4 million budget and all or some of the $2.2 million allocated from reserves last fall. But some $4.3 million of the expected revenue loss stems portion of the budget, which pays law enforcement, courthouse se curity and 9-1-1 dispatch. According to the countys revenue estimates, the funds reduclargely due to the absence of a roughly $4 million transfer from the countys general fund to the The $3,971,113 transfer took previous year for 2010-11, the documents show.

Without a substantial drop in incarceration or crime, the bill for housing county inmates may top $4 million in 2012-13. Mr. Thompson said the local inmate population has been av eraging between 130-140 prisoners in recent months, which is above the 120 average used for budgeting expenditures this year. The remaining revenue losses anticipated for the coming years budget, about $1 million, result from falling property tax proceeds, which are expected to be year, as well as grants that are set to expire or a lack of carry forward funds. That latter money represents any unspent portions of the budget that rollover as revenue for the following year. fund revenue loss, the largest re ductions, by fund, according to countys current estimates, are: (most of the change is due to the loss of a roughly $556,000 grant for new radios). -$295,542. $2.1 million state grant for the Council on Agings transporta tion center project still in the planning stages). Meanwhile, the countys re serves are dwindling, too. Mr. Thompson estimated the balance at about $6 million, but ure. The county will likely save on its share of Medicaid costs owed to the state, which were disputed by a number of Florida counties this year. He said some expense, but significantly less will be required. Every $100,000 helps, said Mr. Thompson. In an effort to further reduce present additional spending cuts to commissioners during the August 27 workshop, which is scheduled to begin at 3 pm in the commission chambers, 55 N. 3rd St. The budget could be substantially different next week, the manager said.B AKER COUNTY COMMISSIONSix new members in Womans ClubThe GFWC Womans Club of Macclenny held its annual membership coffee on Thursday, August 16 with President Frances Frosts theme Be an Angel, Volunteer.

When the coalition meets next month, the group will attempt to seat a governing board, a requiretax status from the IRS, and formally adopt the coalitions draft bylaws. The groups goal is to reduce the rates of drug and alcohol initiative is combating underage drinking. Coalition coordinator Stephen Holland said that two individuals have committed to joining the boards leadership: former counWanda Walker, the school districts former director of special education and student services for 26 years. I know we have problems in the county, even though we may not want to admit it, said Ms. Walker of Macclenny. She hopes to draw on her ex perience with drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention programs in schools and her contacts at the Palatka-based Northeast Florida Education Consortium and a state-wide association of small school districts. I really want us to start at an early age, just like we did with the smoking. If we start early enough, talking to them about the dangers, that can also feed into the home ... said Ms. Walker. I know parents who quit smoking after their kids came home and talked to them about the dangers of it. external affairs at NEFCOM and has served on a number of other boards like the Northeast Florida Regional Council and that of his church, First Baptist of Macclenny. He said he hopes to educate as many people as possible about the risks that accompany substance abuse. It is a problem, said the Glen St. Mary resident. We hear of teenagers and the prescription drug problem, not just in Baker County but the whole state and country. If theres any way I can help with my experience on other boards or in business or in county government, Im happy to do that. The coalition counts about 20 members, six of which have expressed interest in being board members in addition to Mr. ing to Mr. Holland. But the inaugural board will be taking the helm of a substance abuse prevention coalition with about $27,000 in yearly funding from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF). Lutheran Services of Tampa who disperses the money, the socalled managing entity or M.E. contracted by the state to manage provider contracts in the region. Earlier this year, Lutheran Services was awarded what will likely become a three-year con annually. Today, the $27,000 roughly $16,000 for services to adults and $11,000 for services to children flows through Baker Community Counseling Services (BCCS), a Macclenny-based nonprofit providing court-ordered substance abuse counseling. Its located alongside the probation the courthouse. BCCS director Chris Thomas management to the coalition itself once the group has a board, bylaws and a checking account to hold its own funds. The coalition was eying a three-year grant from the DCF to boost its annual funding up to $175,000, but could not com plete the grant application within the week-long turnaround time available. Delays in DCF awarding the M.E. contract to Lutheran Services, including a bid protest by a agencies, was partly to blame for the short application period. It was just too much to do and not enough time to do it, Mr. Thomas said at that time about the highly-competitive Prevention Partnership Grants program. He said the time constraints gave previous applicants an advantage over groups with no experience compiling the documentation. When it comes back around in three years, well be ready, said Mr. Thomas. Well still be able to impact underage drinking, added Mr. Holland, we just wont be able to do as much as we had planned. DCFs use of a handful of man aging entities statewide to oversee thousands of contracts was mandated by the Florida LegislaIt was intended to promote improved access to care and service continuity by creating a agement system of substance abuse and mental health services. But that will also mean pitting local service providers, as well as those from outside the county, against each other in a competi tion over future funding. At this months prevention coalition meeting on August 6, Mr. Thomas said he feared that the quality of services could suffer as providers attempt to underbid each other for new contracts. He also worries that layoffs could result at agencies that either dont win the contracts or arent selected by the winning bidder as subcontractors. Although funding for substance abuse and mental health services was cut about 5 percent began July 1 and another 4 percent was lost to pay Lutheran Services, Mr. Thomas said funding for substance abuse preven tion was not reduced. BCCS, which supplies treatment and counseling to addicts, was cut about $10,000, however. We lost some money, said Mr. Thomas, but we didnt lose so much well have to shut down or lay people off. Were just gostretch it ... They are the M.E., they have the money. All of our invoices, quarterly and monthly reports, are going to them. When coalition members meet next month, on September 4 from 2-3 pm at the health department, theyre expected board members and adopt the coalitions bylaws. The bylaws begin with the following mission statement: [Healthy Baker Prevention Coalition] seeks to educate and communicate with the general public, community organizations and community-serving organizations that work with youth, to eliminate drugs, tobacco, alcohol use and at the same time reduce associated criminal behavior. But given the uncertainty surrounding state funding as well as the effect of federal health care reforms on Medicaid funding, they coalitions path forward is not going to be easy. Its just a very volatile world right now when it comes to what we do, Mr. Thomas said.

Pickup shed from creekThe driver of this 2002 Ford pickup escaped with only a minor injury when it crashed through the concrete abutment on the bridge over Cedar Creek on CR 125 just north of Yarbrough Rd. the morning of August 6.

PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Coaches host free football camp for Sanderson youthsWildcat football coaches joined forces with First Community Church and Save Sandersons Children to host a free football camp for area youths at Jonesville Park the morning of August 18. The youths ran drills and learned fundamentals during the inaugural four-hour camp. Lunch and T-shirts were provided for all campers, too. Pictured clockwise from top: Tarrece Givens leads Wildcat coaches and campers in prayer, coach Kelly Williams helps a young boy during a drill, camper Curtis Harmon on the move during the same drill and campers stretching beforehand.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The BCHS Wildcat basketball team was busy over the summer, attending camp at Tallahassee Community College and playing summer league ball in Middleburg. Coach Charles Ruise says he can see big improvement over what took the court last season. They have collectively bought in to what we are doing and they are ready to claim ownership of the court, said Ruise. The Cats struggled last year, shooting the ball pretty well from the outside but having trouble down in the paint. This year, with the return of 65, 235 lb. center Adrian Robinson, Ruise anticipates more offense under the basket. He has had a really good summer, said the coach. He is a big force on the inside and very aggressive going to the basket. The Cats return some talent on the outside with the coachs son Charles Ruise Jr., Cameron Mack and Jesse Gardiner. They can all shoot the ball well and Gardiner is deadly from the three point stripe. Ruise has been playing a lot of AAU ball over the summer, honing his game. He looks like a completely different player on the court. Playing AAU ball has really elevated his game, said his father. The Cats return some expe rience in center/forward Johnny Lamb, guard/forward Wesley Combs and center/forward Brandon Lewis. The experience paid off as the Cats showed on the court at TCC and in summer play. They played top teams from Georgia, the Bahamas and around Tallahassee. They split in tournament play with the Alabama 5A state champions and defeated Chiles High School of Tallahassee. The Cats also went 5-1 in summer league play against Clay County, Keystone Heights and Middleburg. Our fans should be ready for some exciting basketball, said Ruise. They are going to be surprised by the athletic talent. We have turned some things around. The Wildcats have particular ly worked on handling defensive pressure and laying down some pressure of their own on that side of the ball. Handling the pressure has been our Achilles heel, said Ruise. But we have some better ball handlers to break the pressure. The Cats are continuing to work on their team defense, but Ruise is convinced that they can make a run for the district title. However, Bishop Kenny remains a stumbling block. We played them tight but they got us with a free throw at the end, said Ruise. He does not want that to happen this time around.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS Youve got to hand it to the Baldwin Indians, the team that the Wildcats will face off against on Friday night in the Kickoff Classic at Memorial Stadium in Macclenny. The Indians are a team on the upswing. vious year and turned it into a playoff team. The Indians went 9-3 last year and though they lost to the Village Charter school in the first round of the playoffs, it was a huge achievement. Shields and his squad hope to continue with his rebuilding model as they take on the Wildcats in the Kickoff Classic. The game gives both teams an opportunity to evaluate talent and their off-season moves be fore they both open up for real next weekend. Pre-season games are always tricky because the fans in the stands have a slightly different mind set compared to coaches on the sidelines. Fans anticipate seeing a real live game, while the coaches use the Classic to evaluate how players react in a real-time setting. Coach Ryan Sulkowski and his staff have to fill some holes left by graduation. The most obvious are at quarterback and receiver with the graduation of Thomas Sirk and Kendrick Singleton. But another big hole is in the placekicking position. Jeremy Wannamaker was almost automatic with extra points and finding someone to boot a 40-50 yard field goal isnt easy. Kicker is a skill position difficult to reload and over the summer several players have been vying for the starting slot. There are new players on the offensive and defensive line and in some of the receiver positions. One skill position with a lot of experience is at running back where 1000-yard rusher Falon Lee could be in position for a big year. The Cats relied on the passing game a lot last season and new quarterback Corey Lawler has some good prospects at receiver, but Lee could see a lot of touches as they develop. Defensively the Wildcats look strong, with speed at the defensive back position and a couple of tough defensive ends in Jon Kinney and CeCe Jefferson. Blake Mills and the line is rock solid on defense and Mills and Jefferson are pre-season All-First Coast picks. The game kicks off at 7:30 pm at Memorial Stadium. The varsity is scheduled to go for the first half and the JVs will square off in the second.Improvement seen on court July, August land transfers Bring your invitation kit and let us do the workThe Office Mart 110 S. 5th Street 259 3737 Check it out...bakercountypress.com We print obituaries with a picture free of charge.

ursday, August 23, 2012 T B C P Page 13 Page 12 T B C P ursday, August 23, 2012 When you catch the Florida Gator football games this year on tele vision or in person, you will see a decidedly Baker County look on the sideline and on the field. Four former Baker County students are in the Gator auxiliaries. Three former Wildcat majorettes will be twirling and spinning as Gatorettes and theres a Wildcat cheerleader on the sidelines in orange and blue. Taylor Hartley, Hannah Dobson and Jena Sands are flipping those batons during Gator halftime shows and Jordan Perry is cheering on the sidelines. For the Gatorettes, there are more former Wildcats on the squad than from any other school. Hartley is the veteran, with a year of twirling for the rowdy rep tiles under her belt. She was in the contingent of Gators that performed at the Olympics in London earlier this month (for more on Taylors trip to the Olympics, visit www.baker countypress.com ) Hannah and Jena graduated last year from BCHS, so theyre in their first year twirling for UF. Jordan Perry is the first Wildcat cheering at UF in quite some time. She was a standout for BCHS last year. Keep an eye out for these girls at Gator basketball games as well. and we are learning some interesting things from the pre-season. Here are a few observations. Jaguar quarterback Blaine Gabbert learned a lot in the off-season. Granted, hes not putting up great numbers, but compare his per formance in exhibition to last season and see what a confidence boost this young guy has had. Last year he was the rookie with a short ened pre-season and trying to learn the system. He never really did get it. This season hes the guy in charge and it shows in practice and on the field. Hes going to win some games for the Jaguars. Andrew Luck was thrust into the unenviable position of replacing NFL legend Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. The Stanford quarterback has done a good job so far and it is clear why the Colts were so high on him. He has all the throws as well as size and mobility. Someone else with all the tools is Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. The Baylor quarterback is taking a different road than Luck. He isnt thrust into the starting role with the Redskins. Kurt Cousins has the starting job which gives RG3 a learning period. Smart move. Sigh. We all hoped that the full pre-season would help Jets backup Tim Tebow. So far the jury is out. Neither starter Mark Sanchez or Tebow have managed to engineer a touchdown for the Jets in two games. Id be worried. Peyton Manning, on the other hand, is still Peyton Manning. As Mark Twain would have said, reports of his demise are premature. He has looked great for the Broncos. Was there really any doubt? Only the names on the jer seys of the receivers have changed.

Make sure to store all valuables in trunk to keep burglars from smashing the windows to gain entry. Never leave the keys inside the vehicle and make sure windows are all the way up before locking your vehicle. Even if you are going a short distance, remove keys and lock doors. Lock vehicle when it is in your garage or parked in front of your home. Do not leave purses, wallets, cell phones, cameras, laptop computers or other valuables in your vehicle. Do not attempt to hide them under the seat or un der an article of clothing. Vehicle burglars know all the tricks. Do not keep a hide-a-key in the wheel well. Burglars know all about those hiding places as well. : Nothing you can do will protect you from being the victim of a crime 100 percent of the time, but by practicing good crime pre vention you can lessen your odds of being a victim. if you leave work after dark or if you plan on shopping at night. up and doors locked when you leave your vehicle. be aware of your surroundings as you approach your vehicle. trucks with campers or vehicles with darkened windows. loitering near your vehicle, go back inside and call 911 to report suspicious activity.
