COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThis week students at Westside Elementary School are learning about the leaders, documents and origins of the United States of America as the nation marks 225 years since the Constitution was signed. Like many of her colleagues, second grade teacher Heather Jacobs orchestrated handson lessons to demonstrate the challenges the Founding Fathers faced, including writing documents like the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence with quill and ink. After lunch, Mrs. Jacobs students used brightly colored feathers and small cups of black paint to replicate the endeavor. Arent you glad we dont have to do all our work like this, she told the group of about 20 pupils struggling to write the second paragraph of the Declaration: We hold these truths to be self evident, that all me are created equal ...

But it can be hard on locally owned businesses in small towns that have to go head-to-head against national retailers especially in todays tough economy. That was the message some local business owners gave to the Macclenny City Commisber board discussed a proposed rezoning to pave the way for a new Tractor Supply Co. store in space formerly occupied by Food Lion in the Cornerstone Shopping Center on South 6th Street. Local merchants said they ordinarily support free enter prise and competition but were concerned, nonetheless, about the potential impact a Tractor Supply outlet would have on their businesses. Its going to greatly, greatly affect the little Mom & Pop stores out here, Steve Williams, owner of Cycle & Marine Inc. on South Lowder Street, told commissioners at a board meeting on the evening of September 11. Were already struggling. Mr. Williams said he had just recently heard about the plans and asked whether it was already a done deal. City officials said the proposed rezoning still has to rescheduled for a second public hearing on the evening of October 9, but that there is no legal reason why the request should not be granted. Matt Clark, a commercial real estate agent who was involved in the deal between Tractor Supply and the property owner, Yormaco-Cornerstone, LLC, said he viewed competition as a healthy thing. Mr. Williams said he did, too, but asserted that a major retail chain like Tractor Supply would have a negative impact on similar, but much smaller retail operations. A big box store is going to hurt them, he said. It really S ee page 4Retailers: Tractor Supply will hurt 16-month term for violating probation PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Westside Elementary second grader Malorie Pippins (right) transcribes an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence.Writing lesson on Declaration of IndependenceS ee page 4 A circuit judge sent a Bryceville woman to prison for 16 months after she pleaded no contest on September 12 to violating probation stemming from drug possession and sale cases dating back to 2009. Melissa Pritchett, 41, gets credit for 149 days she has been in county jail since violating terms of a two-year probation by being arrested for drunk driving and failure to pay restitution. Court records show that Ms. Pritchett sold methadone in the parking lot of Walmart to a buyer working for the sheriffs department in March, 2009, and earlier that month sold methadone and other controlled drugs in a prearranged meeting in the park ing lot of Ace Hardware in east Glen St. Mary. She was arrested a third time in November, 2010 for possession of drugs after her vehicle was stopped for erratic driving on US 90 in downtown Macclenny. She was taking her children to school at the time. During the same court session held a day after the usual Tuesday because of another drug trial that was cancelled when a key witness failed to show up, Judge Phyllis Rosier sent Andrew Altom to county jail for a year after he admitted to violating probation in 2010 cases of reckless driving and The state dropped a charge of resisting police and allowed William Godwin Jr. to plead no contest to felony fleeing and driving with a suspended license. He has already served 68 days of a six-month jail sentence and will be on probation a year following release. Judge Rosier also ordered him to pen an apology letter to no contest to grand theft and drew a six-month jail sentence with credit for 68 days already served. The state withdrew a property and noted the defendant is facing other criminal counts in the state of Maine. contest to felony criminal mischief and will be on probation one year. The judge withheld Melissa Pritchett MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF Baker County commissioners are one step away from adopting a $28.2 million budget method of paying for county jail inmate care $200,000 a year. The proposed budget was unanimously endorsed during a meeting on the afternoon of September 17, following a workshop to discuss a plan with the City of Macclenny to pave Buck Starling Road adjacent to the 10-acre site of a future public transportation center operated by the Council on Aging. new spending plan, which holds the line on taxes and fees and was balanced by a roughly $1.5 million transfer from the countys dwindling reserve fund, is scheduled for 6 pm on begins. Included in the $28,213,239 budget is $3,782,945 for county jail inmate care, which the commission in the past has paid in advance quarterly payments in exchange for a discount of about $80,000 a year. By paying the entire amount up front, as Sheriff cials said the county could save up to an additional $120,000 a year. After the sheriff pitched his idea to the board on September 4, Commission Chairman Gordon Crews noted that the plan enables the county to balance the budget without having to take quite as much out of cit. The additional $120,000 in savings, Mr. Crews said, would require a transfer of only $1.48 million from reserves to balance the budget instead of $1.6 million. As of August Were going to have to pay for the inmates anyway. If we can save another $120,000 by paying early Im all for it.Gordon CrewsBaker County Commission ChairmanS ee page 2 S ee page 2

Even in normal times (and these arent normal) the polls can bounce around a bit before election day. One day your mans up by two or three, the next week hes statistically tied but hes down by two. Most people dont pay much attention to polls, or politics in general, until election day looms. Its no secret that both Democrats and Republicans are slugging it out now for that tricky middle ground of voters on November 6 the undecided. Most of the national polling up to mid-September suggests theyre still out there and they havent made up their minds between Mr. Romney and Mr. Obama. The undecideds generally eschew identification with both major political parties in favor of voting for the man. They are what makes elections interesting. And if they elude pollsters because they have cell phones and not land lines, or if as inde pendents they dont mind lying to pollsters or simply refuse to answer their home telephones, then were not going to know how theyll vote until election day. And probably not until late on election day. In fact, because all the major polling groups arent calling cell phones, we may not get an accurate picture anyway. And then theres the matter of sampling size. If Democrats are oversampled based on past voting percentages, the results tend to favor their nominee Mr. Obama (as has been the case in several recent major polls where he led Mr. Romney by 3-5 percentage points). Recent history shows the most accurate polls are derived from respondents reflecting percentages of both major parties and independents that actually voted in past elections and say they intend to vote again in November. But theres still a problem with the cell phone vs. land line in the pool of potential respondents. The campaigns themselves spend lavishly on what are called internals or pinpoint polling that applies the more exact standards to selecting respondents. And they dont generally share those numbers with media and the public for a variety of reasons, but use the results to target individual groups where support is weak or wavering. Thats where the advertising dollars go. The public, we the unwashed, dont generally get the benefit of pinpoint polling until very close to election day. Guessing at this juncture wholl be on top election night is risky, and getting riskier in light of recent events in the Middle East and south Asia where, in case you hadnt noticed, America is better loved than ever. Best strategy: whether they show your man up or down, dont get too elated or depressed by poll results until closer to November 6. Speedys dead! my wife wailed. She was frowning and her bottom lip was sticking out. How do you know the turtles dead? I responded from my chair while watching the Jaguars who also looked pretty dead. Hes got that dead look. Maybe hes asleep. Hes underwater and his eyes are closed. Hes a turtle. Hes probably asleep. Did you tap on the glass? No. I didnt want to wake him if he is asleep. Hes a turtle. Hell go back to sleep if you wake him. She went in the living room where Speedy the turtle lives in a converted aquarium. I heard her tapping on the glass. A few moments later she walked into the room. Okay. He was just sleeping. But he looked dead! Rumors of Speedys demise are greatly exaggerated. Thank you, Mark Twain. But he did look dead. Did he have Xs for eyes? Its not funny. I love Speedy. My wife has taken to Speedy in a way she has not to our three cats. Probably because she didnt want the cats in the as cats will. Speedy kind of showed up, too, and I was surprised my wife didnt complain about him living in the house. But she immediately took to him. She feeds him and talks to him. She had a turtle named Turty when she was a girl so she was disposed to like him. She even calls him Turty from time to time. The turtle also likes her. He does stuff that Ive never seen a turtle do. He will climb the glass and sit on the bottom of his shell and look at Kelley when shes talking to him. Hes the most social turtle Ive ever seen. My son Dylan took him to school and he lived in his biology classroom for a while until Dylan was told that he couldnt have live animals in class. But by that time, Speedy had gotten used to seeing 150 kids every day and was completely social. His aquarium is in front of the living room window and the cats sit and look at him and he them. I suspect, however, that if, like in Tweety and Sylvester cartoons, we could see what is in their feline minds, wed see a big pot of turtle soup. I like animals and I really like Speedy. Why? Speedy/Tur ty is a survivor, another reason to like him. When the kids were little, their Aunt Debbie gave each of them turtles the little turtles that you can buy in pet shops and are about two inches long. My childrens turtles didnt make it, dying within days of mysterious circumstances. Or maybe not so mysterious. Spencer, who was about four at the time, decided that his turtle Yertle the Turtle would much prefer a donut to a piece of lettuce. So Spencer fed him one of his Sweet Sixteen powdered donuts. I guess Sweet Sixteen powdered donuts are like arsenic to turtles and Yertle went to the big aquarium in the sky. We should have known that would happen. The only thing that I ever won ever in my life, was a dead turtle at a school carnival when I was 10. It was a cake walk, and other kids were winning coconut cakes and pecan pies and chocolate chip cookies. I won a turtle. I was thrilled. Who wants a chocolate chip cookie when they can have a turtle? I named him Tootie after a favorite character on my favorite TV show, Car 54, Where Are You? I took Tootie out of the box when I went home and put him nudged him. Nothing. I went to have dinner and when I came back he was in the same spot. I went to bed and when I got up he was still there. Either he was the slowest turtle on record or he was in turtle heaven. I didnt even feed him a Sweet Sixteen donut. But Speedy lived. And grew. And grew, and he is now about 10 inches long. He was cousin Ashtons turtle but she gave him to Dylan last year so he could take him to his biology class. Now, Speedy lives with us. Good ole Speedy, the turtle that can stand on his shell. I guess he also knows another trick. He can play dead. Some GOP governors and state legislatures, including Floridas, have been criticized for cutting early voting hours, purging voter rolls and requiring voters present ID at the polls. We turned to Facebook this week to see how Baker County voters felt about the changes. We asked, Do you feel the new election laws are keeping more people from voting?James Beattie: Yes. Garrath Phelps: No. Damien Moralez: Maybe. Lynne Bolen: No. I think people are just getting disgusted and disap pointed with the whole thing. Seems no matter who is elected, nothing gets done that should be ... at least not correctly. Louise Curtiss Smith: No ... and every state should have voter ID law! Tim Dewey: Absolutely. Melissa Elaine Haines: Pretty soon it is not going to matter ... We will no longer have the right to vote if we keep putting these people in of ce that want to tell us how we are to live, where we are to live and with what means we are going to live. We need to face the fact that America as we know it is fastly leaving. Jason Randall: Corporations own the election and the electorate. Our votes are irrelevant ... Isnt it great that voter fraud laws eliminate the ability for hundreds of thousands to vote, when voter fraud only happens 0.00284 percent of the time? Nancy Storch Oliver: No, people who are going to make informed, intelligent, thoughtful choices are going to make it a point to vote no matter what. Ricky N Stacey Horne: No, you are required to have photo ID for most anything you do in life, why should voting be any dierent? It does not upset me to have to show ID because I am who I say I am, alive and not ille gal. We all have time restrictions for things we do in our day to day life, if you cant make the early voting, voting day or [send in] an absentee ballot, you really didnt plan on voting anyway! Jessica Brown: In my opinion, limiting the early voting days or hours, and the restrictions on third party registrations, are directly re lated to disenfranchising valid voters from participating. Some people Facebook fansWhat you had to say ... MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley have transportation or job dif culties that can make the limited hours, locations and registrations a problem. A case can be made either way for the ID portion of the restrictions, but there are many valid reasons why some people do not have a photo ID. If it is going to be a requirement, then photo IDs should be easily accessible to all and not require a fee. Re quiring a fee be paid to receive something so that you can vote is not appropriate. No US citizen should be denied the right to vote unless those rights have been revoked or otherwise suspended legally due to criminal oenses. Buddy Dugger: No, I do not. I can not go to the doctor, cash a check, buy a car or insurance without a drivers license. My question is if having an ID makes it hard to vote how are people without one cashing checks, going to the doctor or other things. Angela Suppa Callahan: I do think these new laws were put in place for the wrong reasons, but the only one that I have a real problem with is cutting the amount of early voting days. I dont think there is a valid reason at all for that one. Jason Randall: Those in nursing homes often have out dated IDs, which means they cant vote. Good riddance, right?The following day we asked read ers to tell us what they love most about Baker County. Nobody mentioned The Baker County Press, but heres what they did cite:Wayne Stewart: Teachers, police; all our government employees are great. You cant say that in Jacksonville. Ive lived in Baker since 1997 and I love it. Daniel Dugger: The local businesses with the exception of Walmart; cant beat the mom and pop shops who know you by name and treat you like family:-) Carolyn Honeytree Briggs: Dirt roads. Christopher Huber: I dont live there anymore. Living here in Yulee (Nassau County), we have a better selection of places to go and play (bowling, movies, beach), better restaurants, better shopping choices, beer sales are legal on Sunday, and you still have the small town feeling when you drive down the road. No, I dont miss Baker county much at all. Open 7 Days week | 8:00 am 8:00 pmCrossroads Shopping Center816 S. 6th St. Macclenny adjudication of guilt.

F rom page 127, the reserve fund held about $7.8 million. Were going to have to pay for the inmates anyway, said the commission chairman. If we can save another $120,000 by paying early, Im all for it. The payment plan is based on an average daily projected inmate population of 130. If the average number is higher at the end of the year the county will have to pay more; conversely, if the head count goes down there will be a refund. We reconcile quarterly now, said Brian Bishop, the sheriffs director of administration. Sometimes we owe them (county) money back and sometimes they owe us more. During the meeting with the county board two weeks ago, Mr. Bishop said the proposed new payment plan would bring close to a 5 percent dis count, which would increase the total potential savings to the county to about $200,000 next year. The reason the county gets a discount is that the generate greater savings of its own, which could be passed on to the county, Mr. Bishop said. Commissioners met twice in budget workshops week, during which there were no comments from the audience and very little discussion among board members. They contended previously they had made all the cuts they felt comfortable making and were stead fastly opposed to any tax or fee increases to help balance the budget. Members also expressed a desire to refrain from dipping into reserves in the future, while conceding that might not be possible. On a positive note for county employees, no jobs were lost and no one will be forced to take furlough days off without pay as had been considered recently. However, for the third year in a row the budget contains no money for employee pay raises. The total millage is 7.1495, which translates to about $7.15 for every $1,000 of assessed property valuation. The county manager said the value of a mill has decreased in the past year from $772,329 to $731,833 due to declining property values. Although the county has held tight on the property tax rate in recent years, commissioners have said they cant promise the trend will continue much longer. I think the roll back rate is going to be a reality in the next year or two, Chairman Crews said during the September 4 board meeting, referring to the rate that would be necessary to generate the same amount of revenue as was raised the previous year before property values declined further. The total budget for 2012-13 includes revenues of $13.9 million for the general fund, up from $12.4 last which is about $150,000 higher; and $2.4 million for the road and bridge fund, a decrease of $250,000.

Dean Griffis, owner of the Glen Cash hardware store in Glen St. Mary, said he had always welcomed competition, but not particularly at this time when so many businesses are struggling to keep their doors open. just trying to weather the storm and come out on the other side. Im not against competition. Im just concerned about the timing. It couldnt come at a worse time. Tractor Supply has grown to 1,130 stores in 45 states since the company was founded in 1938 seven years after Glen Cash owned the hardware store for 35 years, said he depends upon the same clientele for his survival that Tractor Supply would try to attract. Commissioner Vernon Ben have lived in Baker County and shopped at local businesses for the issue before him. But he said he had to support the rezoning request. Its something we dont want to do but we know its the right thing to do, Mr. Bennett said, drawing an immediate response Were not here trying to prohibit those folks from coming in, times. But we wanted the board to hear our concerns. Mr. Williams, who has owned Cycle & Marine since 1999, didnt come right out and ask city commissioners to reject the rezon ing request. But he said he was against it. Tractor Supply has been known to drop prices below cost to get products out of the store, Mr. Williams said. I cant afford to do that. Commissioners expressed sympathy for local merchants who might see a drop in business after Tractor Supply comes to town. But they all agreed that they have no choice but to approve the rezoning. I dont see how we can turn them down, Commissioner Tommy Johns said. On a positive note, Mr. Johns said Glen Cash and Cycle & Marine probably sell products and services that Tractor Supply does not and that Tractor Supply might refer customers to them. Commissioner Phil Rhoden said nobody wants to see any businesses get hurt, but on the other hand Tractor Supply would be good for the local business community as a whole and, in particular, for other stores in the Cornerstone Shopping Center. Looking at it from a govern ment standpoint we have to be consistent with how we treat everybody, Mr. Rhoden said. Im hoping everybody survives. Smaller shops want an anchor store to help their businesses. City Manager Gerald Dopson said he had received phone calls from business people expressing concerns about the Tractor Sup ply plans, too, similar to fears aroused years ago by the news that Winn-Dixie was coming to town. Several local grocery store owners were concerned but we went forward with what we thought was an attempt to move the city forward, he said. Moving ahead with the rezoning for Tractor Supply, the city manager said, also will be good for consumers and will provide local jobs, adding that the empty building vacated by Food Lion is going to be improved tremen dously. Were trying to promote free enterprise and offer as many opportunities for the local consumer as we can, he said. Yormaco-Cornerstone, LLC., a company based in California, has submitted a petition to rezone 8.6 acres at the northwest corner of Willis Hodges Road and South 6th Street from Commercial Gen eral to Planned Unit Development, or PUD. Renovation plans include 25,118 square feet of space inside the building, which is about 62 percent of the available space left vacant by the departure of Food Lion early this year, and an additional fenced display area encompassing 15,000 square feet of space alongside a 3,000-squarefoot display area for trailers and equipment close to 6th Street. Roger Yarborough, the citys building and zoning director, said the outdoor display area is what triggered the requirement for a ible type of zoning that gives the city more control over development restrictions. Outside stor age areas are not permitted in districts zoned Commercial General. A PUD zoning gives the city a lot of say-so in what goes there, Mayor Gary Dopson said. City requirements will include an opaque fence 10 feet high to be erected behind the building, where deliveries will be made from Willis Hodges Road, to provide a visual buffer between the store and nearby residences. New landscaping also is part of the zoning plan, not just in front of Tractor Supply but throughsaid. This is a great opportunity for the city as well as the shopping center. We want to beautify it, said Chris Weaver, the owners agent with Weaver Realty Group in Jacksonville. Having a major store like Tractor Supply in the shopping center may help attract other tenants in the future, Mr. Yarborough said, adding that in the past few years Weaver Realty has brought Sams Crystal River Seafood and Goodys clothing store to the center.MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF The Baker County Commission met with Macclenny City Manager Gerald Dopson and Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough in a 4 pm workshop on September 17 to discuss improvements along Buck Starling Road, a county road, behind the WinnDixie Shopping Center. The two governmental agen cies agreed to jointly fund paving and storm water drainage improvements on the road as part of a larger plan to build a federallyfunded transportation center on 10 acres, which also is the future site of a new Council on Aging facility. grocery chain, which creates a lot the now-dirt road and onto the site. Most of the water comes from the Winn-Dixie and floods the property, County Manager C.J. Thompson said, adding that the road and drainage improvements will cost an estimated $106,000. The property east of Buck Starling is in the city, while to the west that Willis Hodges Road, which intersects Buck Starling at the northwest corner of Winn-Dixie, must also be paved at some point in the future but that Buck Star ling is the main priority for now. Council on Aging (COA), Com missioner Jimmy Anderson said the improvements would also be serving the community because Buck Starling is sometimes impassable due to heavy rains and becomes little more than a fourwheel drive playground. The COA bought the 10-acre site before transferring owner ship last year to the county, which in turn leased the land back to the rangement was necessary for the county to secure a $2.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation for the transportation center project. Most of the engineering and design has been completed and construction is expected to start in near future, with completion anticipated in 2014.

The bid requirements called for weekly collection and transportation of garbage to New Riv the form submitted by the apparent low bidder, Advanced Disposal Services in Callahan, had the words with disposal crossed out. The matter was brought to the city commissions attention by consulting engineer Frank Dations and will evaluate the proposals, during a board meeting on September 11.

The company selected also will be responsible for paying the city a $12,000 annual franchise fee to supply services to approximately 2,100 residential customers and 179 commercial customers, plus more than 100 dumpsters.

Page9SEPTEMBER 20, 2012 Page 8 T B C P ursday, September 20, 2012 JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker County School Board this week turned its attention to the districts adult education programs with a half-hour workshop prior to its regular meeting the evening of Septem ber 17. The programs feature day and evening classes on basic education and literacy skills for adults without high school diplomas who may also move onto GED prep classes. Ann Watts, director of Career and Adult Education, said dur annual performance report and improvement plan that enrollment in classes teaching skills in grade 6 and below skyrocketed between 2010-11 and 2011-12. The report showed a 180 per cent increase in the number of participants, from 28 to 81, in those classes. Overall, enrollment in adult basic education classes covering material from grades 1 to 12 showed a more modest jump from 191 students to 200. The nearly .5 percent gain in total enrollment was the result of the large increase in lower level classes coupled with a 27 percent drop in students in the middle and high school level classes. Ms. Watts attributed the spikes in participation to better marketing of the programs in the media and getting student referrals from other agencies. She said a video advertisement will appear on the Jumbotron dur ing this Fridays Wildcat football game. Were excited about that, she said. The report given to school board members this week also showed a jump in what Ms. Watts termed improved literacy rates. They rose from 408 in 2010-11 to 531 in 2011-12. The basic education classes take place Tuesdays and Thursday from 6:30 to 9 pm and Monday through Friday from 9 am to 1 pm at the Adult Education Center, which is located near Keller Intermediate School in southwest Macclenny. The programs extend to sites outside the center, however. Ms. Watts explained the programs are also offered to those with disabilities at Northeast Florida State Hospital and The Arc North Florida; as well as to local inmates being held at the county jail. She said the Adult Education Center programs, in the eyes of the Florida Department of Edu cation, are like other local schools in that theyre subject to similar performance-based reporting requirements, including submittal of the yearly improvement plan. The most popular adult education program offered by the center are computer literacy classes available to local seniors with disabilities. Ms. Watts said the classes have grown to the point was capped this year. Other classes open to disabled seniors teach painting and cer tain kinds of writing like historical journaling and letter writing. Enrollment in programs for adults with disabilities also grew to 123 students in 201112 from 108 the previous year, and the number meeting two performance benchmarks grew by some 20 percent, the report shows. Ms. Watts noted a change in the coming year for the programs at the state hospital [NEFSH]. will contribute funds for contin uation of the vocational classes administered at the state mental health facility. Located there are classes, open to patients, on woodworking, gardening and janitorial skills. She said a 15 percent cut to Adults with Disabilities funding in the states 2012-13 budget put the wood working program in jeopardy and the hospital agreed to pay up to $14,500 to support the classes. wanted the program to continue unchanged, said Ms. Watts. She said later that since 2002-03, funding has fallen by 40 percent, from $229,953 to $137,099 annually. During the school boards regular meeting, which began at 6:30 pm, the panel renewed its agreement with NEFSH for con tinuation of the programs with the hospitals contribution. The agreement states that the school district is responsible for supplying teachers and instructional materials while the hospital will provide the classroom space, maintenance and custodial services and staff to supervise patients. The district will invoice the hospital for $16.78 per hour of the program, up to $14,500 an nually. In other business that eve ning, the school board: districts Student Progression Plan, which the board is required by state law to adopt each year. The most sweeping changes are those related to graduation, which are mandated by the state as well. For instance, high school students struggling to complete the credit requirements for graduation could previously, under certain circumstances, take the GED and receive a high school diploma. BCHS principal Tom Hill said students who only pass the GED can no longer receive a standard high school diploma in Florida. Students must also pass a number of higher-level math and science course exams as well as achieve passing scores on the reading and math FCAT to re ceive a diploma. A civics course in middle school is now also required for promotion to high school. Students at any grade level who fail more than one class in language arts, reading, math, science or social studies will have to repeat their present grade. In the past, such students could attend summer school for a chance to be promoted. Now, only those who fail a single class can retake it during the summer term. school bus with more than 160,000 miles to the sheriffs ofmunity service workers to projects around the county. Transportation department director Johnnie Jacobs, in a memo to the board, stated the 2001 International bus is no longer used for student transportation purposes as it is havto do so. who made a campaign pledge to donate his salary back into the school system, handed principals Bonnie Jones of the Pre-K Kindergarten Center and Debbie Fraser of Macclenny Elementary School checks for $500 at the conclusion of the meeting.

Curtis Harman recovered a fumble and returned it for the go-ahead touchdown and the Bobcat defense stopped a pair of Yulee drives late in the game to give Coach Rock Rhodens BCats a 2-0 start. The defense stood tall to give us the win, said Rhoden. Yulee always has a good team but (Bobcat offense) Coach Steven Rios had the defense ready to play. Will Rhoden scored twice for the middle school including a 70the game. Quarterback Chaise son. It was close, but our three big von Clayton and Dalton Thomas controlled the game, said Rhoden. He also was pleased with the play of middle linebacker Caleb Scott. Rhoden gave high marks to his offensive coach Andy Rios and special teams coach David Crawford, too.

Ouch. as BCHS racked up touchdown after touchdown. After a while the cheering quieted down a bit as it be came clear that it was men against boys. The Panthers were doing the best they could, but at times they looked like a Pop Warner team. They were that outclassed. out. The fans had a clear picture of what this game and outs for the Panthers, Falon Lee took a handoff from Corey Lawler and scampered 35 yards into the end zone. He was completely untouched as if he was wearing the red vests quarterbacks wear in practice so they cant be tackled. The point after was no good, the only blemish on the drive. After the second three and out, Lawler hit Mike Boone for a 48-yard touchdown run. Boone was untouched, then took the ball around the end for the conversion and 14-0 lead. Another three and out gave the Cats the ball on the Duval Charter 23-yard line. Lee took the handoff in to give BCHS a 21-0 edge. Again, he was untouched. Rashaad Hadley picked up a Panther fumble and Lawler hit Brandon Miller on the next play from 18 yards out for another lightning score and a 27-0 lead after the missed PAT. The Cats had to work a little more after the next three and out. A penalty stopped a 65-yard run by Lee but the Cats rebounded, drove to the seven yard line on two plays and Boone ran around the end for the score and a 34-0 lead. Another fumble gave the Wildcats the ball on the Duval Charter 20 and ushered in another score for Lee, who took the ball up the middle through a gigantic hole opened by the offensive line. The Cats struggled again on the PAT but were up 40-0. The Wildcats got another three scores from Lee and Dalton Dyal and went into the half up 59-0. To their credit, the Panthers came out aggressive ly. They tried an on-side kick but it was recovered by BCHS. The Panther defense seemed to have stopped the Cats but Jacob Carter ran down to the 25 yard line on fourth down and scored on the next play. The 66-0 edge was a new school record for BCHS. Last season, the Cats cruised to a 64-0 win over Paxon to eclipse a 62-0 win over Stanton Prep in 2002. Somehow, though, this beating seemed more comprehensive than last years. The Cats scored again with the running clock knocking big chunks of time off the game. Dalton Dyal ran to the Duval Charter 25, Carter connected with Logan Fox at the 16 and Dyal took it in from there. There isnt much in the way of an upside for the Panthers except that Coach Buster Davis team is getting game experience. Davis has loads of game experience as a linebacker for the Seminoles and the NFL Arizona Cardinals. If he can keep his freshmen and sophomores heads up, it wont be long until they start winning a game or two. Just not this year.

The record breaking win against Duval Charter was a cakewalk. What are some of the positives and negatives in playing that kind of game? The positive thing is you get kids in who might not normally be in the general rotation. We were able to bump some JV kids up for the Duval Charter game to see how they perform on a Friday night. Really its all part of building for the future. A perfect example of that comes at the QB position. Including the Baldwin scrimmage, our back-up QB has played the same amount of quarters as our starting QB. younger players. The drawback to that is we really need our starters to get as much game time experience as they can with a district run coming up. We actually pulled a majority of our starters midway through the 2nd quarter on Friday. Does the one-point loss last season to Clay give added meaning to the start of district play? I do not think there has to be added meaning. This game is very important because these district games are the ones that count. They are the ones that de termine who will make the playoffs ... The kids understand we let this game slip away last year with eight turnovers and still only lost it by 1 point. We will be focused. The Blue Devils have started the season 0-3. Is there anything extra that the coaches have to do to keep the team from thinking this might be a walkover? All we have to do is turn on to realize that they are not a walkover. They have played three weeks in a row against teams in think that an 0-3 Clay team is a pushover would be a very poor assessment. Do you feel added pressure with the start of district play? As a coach, every game is just as important. We put too much pressure on ourselves as it is, but in reality all we can do is game plan the opponent, prepare the kids through practice, and hope they can execute what they were taught and got reps at during a given week. The pressure is always there, especially in district play because there are no doovers. Last year we had 13 turnovers in our two district losses and were home for the playoffs. What do you expect out of Clay? Clay is always very physical. I expect them to pound away with their running backs on offense and eat a lot of clock.
