COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings BOB GERARD | SPOR T S There was a cool wind coming off the St. Johns River but the hundreds of Wildcat fans in the stands at Bishop Kenny on Friday didnt notice the chill as BCHS bulldozed its way to a 49-35 victory and the district title. Falon Lee continued on a tear, rushing for 222 yards on 28 carries and scoring three touchdowns. For the Wildcat fans there couldnt have been a better start to the game. Kenny was keying on the potent Wildcat running attack and quarterback Corey Lawler hooked up with receiver Mike Boone to catch the Crusaders by sur prise. Boone turned on the jets and ran for a 66-yard touchdown strike. The extra point attempt failed, but Cats were quickly on the board. The defending district champs werent going to let an early setback stop them and Kenny demonstrated its own offensive prowess. Though passing attack from quarter back John Wolford, it was the blood. Running back Cameron Singletary broke containment and ran 30 yards for the score. The point after gave the Crusaders a one-point edge. The hosts quieted the Wildcat faithful again as they struck quickly on an offensive miscue. Ahmad Fulwood scooped up a Wildcat fumble and raced 47 yards to stun BCHS and put the Crusaders up 14-6.

The aggravated assault count was connected to Mr. Washingtons altercation with Kevohntae Hadley, then 18, which drew an estimated 50 people to the melee at the corner of MLK Boulevard and Minnesota Av enue about 8 pm. Witnesses told police Mr. Washington got into his mothers 2001 Chevrolet sedan parked near the intersection and aimed it at among their younger sisters, reportedly over a boy. The victim, who had cerebral palsy, was struck by the sedan and dragged un derneath as Mr. Washington pursued Mr. Hadley. Mr. Belfords family said at the sentencing hearing the defendant did not heed pleas to stop the vehicle. Mr. Belfords adoptive mother, Eddie Mae Lee, read a letter she wrote back in September expressing her disbelief that Mr. Washington was sorry for killing Mr. Belford. She argued he did not deserve the courts mercy.

Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered him onto a two-year probation following release, and Mr. Thompson is liable for $520 in investigative costs. The state dropped four of the original counts against him.

Supervisor of Elections Nita Crawford said a battery powering the memory card that stored some early voting results malfunctioned and the tallies were lost before they could be downloaded.

Going forward, the supervisor said she plans to re place the batteries before each election. The glitch led to two recounts of early voting ballots, but the recounts were falling short of the number written when early voting ceased November 3.

It makes you feel great if your candiself-esteem in that the majority of fellow citizens in Baker County feel the same way you do. Or, more subjectively, the majority of fellow citizens in Baker County share your impeccable judgement. Conversely, if your candidate loses, and weve all had that happen, there is some comfort in knowing that his or her candidacy was put before the people, and an over whelming majority of those who can vote did. The sobering reality if you believe in our representative republic form of government (we are not, per se, a democracy) is that you must have faith that the wisdom of the body politic is ultimately sacrosanct. Sometimes in the short term it is not (Im worried as I write this about the outcome of the presiden tial race tonight). In the long run, our system is the best there is. So that brings us to Baker Countys turnout in the 2012 general election. After a glitch delay Tuesday night that forced a re view of early voting October 27 to Novem ber 3, 81 percent of us turned out at the polls. According to the Division of Elections in Tallahassee, thats the fourth highest in Florida. Mind you, higher than our 79 percent in 2008 and busting out the 58 percent in 2010s off-year contests. That, friends, is something we can be proud of. We take a personal interest in our candidates, the issues confronting us, and we grasp that we have a real voice in who represents us. Perhaps were less attached to candidates further up the ladder state and federal but we care about them, too. So, if youre happy or sad this week, take heart. We show up at the polls.

Heres a look at some those comments: Jessica Prevatt: Ive never been but I heard it was fun. Allison Broughton: Its pricey but Im thinking of something similar but more affordable. Maybe that could be your next poll? I want to know what the citizens most want :) Theresa Rhoden: What is Lati tude 30? Allison Broughton: Bowling, arcade, movies, restaurant etc. Huge TVs over the bowling alley for sports. Nice but expensive. Theresa Rhoden: Would love to see something like that come to our county! The kids have nothing to do. Allison Broughton: I spent $100 just in the arcade! Didnt even eat. Id like to have something out here that people can aord and our kids can stay o the roads. Theresa Rhoden: Agree 100%. Jan Hoffman Schiner: Like the one in Jax? Jessica Prevatt: Id love to see someone try it. Short term business would boom, but it would probably have to be cheaper than Latitude 30 and keeping them coming long term would be the battle! Allison Broughton: Definitely cheaper. Agree. Jessica Prevatt: Although I personally have no problem paying a little more if it means a nicer place to go, but in the overall scheme of things, most wouldnt or cant af ford it. The idea of not having to go to town for birthday parties with something fun to do is tantalizing:) DeAnna Rewis McDue: I think its a fantastic idea. Sarah Card: Absolutely it would! It is upscale and has so much to oer everyone! Allison Broughton: So ... Im thinking similar activities, less u (i.e. plush couches in the bowling lane, etc.), but still nice, and you dont have to spend $15 or more to drive to Jax. The longer I live in Bak er, the less I want to drive anywhere else. Suggestions are welcome and the creative wheels are spinning. Have a great night everyone! Mona Linster Ossi: I think they should.

The plan calls for the installation of 10,000-gallon water storage tanks at three in the county Cuyler, Baxter and Olustee. A storage tank already exists at station No. 40 in Taylor. The long-range vision also entails the use tanker trucks recently donated to the county by the Florida Division of Forestry to haul waremote parts of the county. In all, the proposed improvements would enable his department to take better care of our 585 square miles, Chief Dolan told commissioners during a board meeting on the evening of November 5. If successful, he said, the countys enhanced ers anywhere from $200 to $500 or more annually on insurance premiums. The total cost to implement the plan, he said, likely would be about $100,000, to which commissioners responded that the coun ty couldnt afford to appropriate that much money this year. Perhaps next year during the budget process the funds could be found, they suggested. We should pursue this but we need to go through the budgetary process, said Commission Chairman Gordon Crews, adding that the protection of lives and property is more important than any insurance savings. Other commissioners concurred, including is a great goal, but we cant front the money now. Part of the plan can be implemented now by using federal funds to prepare the donated tankers for service, which would require new tires, painting and equipment, Mr. Dolan said. would be around $27,000, the chief said, adding that the money is available immediately in Title III federal funds set aside to help combat is comprised of federal and state forests.

His new plan, he said, could bring about lower insurance rates for thousands of homes from one end of the county to the other. Meanwhile, Chief Dolan said he will seek private donations to help fund the plan next year, as well as continueg to get permission from homeowners to use private ponds from A turbo pump would be used to extract water from the ponds at about 470 gallons per cess, he said.

In order for ponds to help reduce insurance premiums, each would have to meet certain size requirements and pass a 50-year drought study to be classified as a certified water source. They also must be within 1,000 feet of structures on the property. I feel we should be able to get our citizens behind us on this project, said the chief.

Fire insurance cost could drop JOEL ADDINGT ON NE WS EDIT OR firstname.lastname@example.orgTeachers and other union members of the Baker County Education Association will soon receive one-time bonuses along with seniority-based salary increases under the unions new contract approved this week. The Baker County School Board voted unanimously in favor of the three-year deal November 5 following three months of periodic negotiations between school district and union representatives. The agreement gives teachers the same step raises which grow larger the longer employees remain with the district they received last year. The raises range from $172 for those on their second year of teaching to $6511 for those on their 25th year, which is ers here. But the school board also granted teachers who have at least one year with the district a bonus, retroactive to July 1, 2012, of $450. The terms of the union contract are also retroactive to that date. The bonuses come during a year in which insurance premiums rose either 8 percent or 4.5 percent depending on which of four plans employees selected. It was an overall good experience, union president and Westside Elementary School teacher Angela Callahan said of the negotiations. I think we all left in a good place. Teachers had a real concern about the rising cost of insurance and we feel like the team heard our concerns. I felt like we were able to make a good compromise. Other contract revisions were made to relish a merit-pay system for Floridas teachers. The changes are being phased in through 2014 when all new teachers will be paid based largely on student performance. Current teachers were given the option to remain under the step salary schedule or move into the merit pay system. This year was also an open year for the contract, meaning both sides could seek any changes to the contract they wanted rather than the limited number of revisions allowed in closed years. The contract opens every three years. And this time around, the union sought to add more items that can be negotiated in closed years. Previously in those years, both parties could bring to the bargaining table three items to negotiate in addition to salary, revise. In the new agreement, which expires June 30, 2015, health insurance, teacher assessments and any sections of the contract affected by acts of the legislature or court decisions were added to the list of items subject to annual bargaining. Changes were also made to the supplemen tal compensation for some coaches and club sponsors. Supplements were added for the high schools boys and girls swim team coaches ($1390) and the middle school baseball ($1500) and assistance baseball ($1000) coaches. The high and middle school majorettes coaching supplements rose by $74 to $600. The Just Say No club supplement increased by $125 to $400. Still, the district added language to require that supplements must be paid by their respective team or club sponsors or boosters, not from school district monies. Management also sought a substantial change in how layoffs would take place if the school board decided to reduce instructional personnel. Previously, tenured teachers were better protected from workforce reductions, as theyre called in the contract, than non-tenured faculty. based on the districts educational program needs and performance evaluations. The docseniority. A lot of hard work has gone into our efforts with our union, said the districts human resources director Robin Mobley. I can say we had very successful negations. What I saw was a very pleased group of teachers and I know our staff was very pleased with the way bargaining went. Ms. Mobley was joined on the districts bargaining team by consultant Jerry Cope land of Titusville, David Davis, director of teaching and learning; Johnnie Jacobs, transportation director, David Crawford, safety director, Macclenny Elementary principal Debdirector. The unions team consisted of Ms. Callahan, Jessica Fish and Kelly Norman. They represent some 300 teachers, guidance counselors and media specialists. I know it wasnt easy, but I really appreciate you coming out on the other side with a win-win for the community and this school district, school board member Patricia Weeks said. Other board members praised both teams as well. Theres a lot of negative stuff in a lot school districts and a lot of it has to do with contracts, said member Artie Burnett. I appreciate the can-do attitude that the teachers union and administrators brought to the negotiations. Board member Jesse Davis noted that good teachers and schools can help attract sorely needed growth to Baker County. We have to make sure our teachers are apited funds we have, he said. I think everyone in this room knows 70 percent our funding comes from the State of Florida, so all of us in this county are contributing only a small portion ... As residents and students leave our county, so does the money, and thats tough. In other business this week, the school board approved an agreement with the Wom ens Center of Jacksonville for counseling at the school districts Family Service Center on 8th Street in Macclenny to victims of sexual violence.

A Lunch and Learn on safe sleep practices for infants will be held at the Baker County Health Department on November 16 from noon to 1 pm. The program, hosted by the health department and the Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition, will be presented by pediatrician Dr. Bruce McIntosh. The event is a response and an effort to reduce the infant mortality in Baker County since it is nearly three times higher than the state average and 40 percent of these deaths are sleeping related, said local Healthy Start coordinator Sue Murphy. The public is welcome, but since lunch will be provided, visitors are asked to RSVP by e-mailing Ms. Murphy at Sue_Murphy@doh.state.fl.us or by calling her at (904) 259-8267 Ext. 2255.

More than six hours later, after the additional bags of ballots were recovered, the early voting count came within 17 ballots of the number recorded after early voting ended, which Ms. Cain attributed to ballots with blank votes. Still, Ms. Crawford released sults. Voter turnout here was estimated at 81 percent, among the highest in the state, and early voting accounted nearly half 48 percent of all votes cast, according to the results. Were really pleased, said Sheriff Dobson, who will now begin his fifth term in office. I trusted the people of Baker County to make a good decision and I think they did tonight. The sheriff said his department would continue to help county residents and endeavor to keep them safe, just as theyve done in the past. Voters in Baker County also favored seven of the eleven Con stitutional amendments placed on the ballot by Floridas Republican-controlled legislature. Those gaining a majority of support were: Amendments 1, which represented opposition to a key component of Obamacare; Amendment 2, which cut property taxes for some veterans; Amendment 6, an anti-abortion amendment; Amendment 9; which would give a property tax break to spouses of veterans and of duty; Amendment 10, an addi tional tax exemption for tangible property; and Amendment 11, an additional homestead property tax exemption for low-income seniors. The results also showed that Baker County voters did not support the retention of most of the judges on the ballot. Only three of seven judges gained a majority of votes here for being retained, and the margins about 4 percent more for retention than against were small. No provi sional ballots were cast this year.

Kayla Holland was named District 4-5A Player of the Year. Holland led the team in kills, digs, service aces and reception percentage. She was nominated for the All-Star game and for the Florida Miss Volleyball award presented by the Dairy Farmers. Reagan McKendree was named to All Academic team. She had 6 kills and 8 digs in the loss to Ponte Vedra. Brooke Roberts led all passers with a 2.43 reception grad and 5 digs. Candace Clack had 4 blocks and 5 digs. I am very proud to have coached this team and I will miss my seniors more than they realize, said Sulkowski. However I am very excited about the talent that is coming up from JV and the middle school team. The team got off to a slow start with home losses to Trinity and Oakleaf but picked up steam as the season progressed, win ning the Keystone tournament in a match Sulkowski considered the best of the year. Sulkowski regretted losing her seniors. Kayla, Reagan and Brooke have all been on varsity since they were sophomores, and because they have been there for the past three years it was just natural for them to be our leaders, she said. Next year someone will have to step up as a leader to take their spot. The Lady Cats will return four starters next season. Sulkowski will look to Malory Osteen and Callie Wheeler to pick up most of the hitting and Rebecca Long will see plenty of playing time in the middle. We will be looking to pull up a couple of hitters from JV or our rising eighth graders. Taylor Hancock will return next year to run the offense at the setting position, the coach said. Sulkowski plans to schedule some league matches this summer and attend a team camp to continue building continuity and keep skills honed over the sum mer months.Netters out of playos Advertising Deadline Monday 5:00 pm NO EXCEPTIONS!

Lee took the kick to near midfield and Lawler hit Logan Fox at the Kenny 40. If the Crusaders had any doubt about Lawlers ability to run the ball he demonstrated it on the next play. He broke multiple tackles, pulling Crusaders with him down to the 2-yard line. On the next play Lee scored and Boone added the conversion to knot the score at 14-14. The Wildcat defense did an excellent job pressuring John Wolford all night long. Wolford is the kind of player who is going to get yardage, but for BCHS it was a bend, dont break situation that Coach Ryan Sulkowski had installed as the game plan. The defense pressured Wolford and forced him to check down to his second and third receivers or scramble. Though Fullwood had a good game by most teams standards with six catches for 96 yards, he did not have the game changing effort that he has shown before. Wolford had to look to Mo Tapper and Hunter Parry to pick up yardage as he increasingly found his top choice covered, or himself being harassed to the point he had to check down to his third or fourth receiver. The Wildcat defense pushed the Crusaders into uncharacter istic mistakes. The Kenny punter twice tried a moving rugby style punt but the Cats blocked both attempts. CeCe Jefferson BCHS the ball at the Kenny 31yard line. Lawler hit Fox at the 15 and two plays later ran it in for the score. The PAT was good from Jacob Carter for a 21-14 edge. Kenny came right back with passes to Parry and Fulwood and yards out to tie the score. Again, BCHS hit back. Though forced to punt, the Wildcats de fense stepped up in a big way on the next Bishop Kenny possession. Blaine Merchant ripped the ball out of Parrys hand to give the Wildcats the ball at the 40-yard line. It was to prove the game changing play as the Wildcats scored on a run from Lee and would never trail again. Though the Wildcats led the game, because of the quick scoring ability of Bishop Kenny, there was never a moment where the fans or players could relax. The defense continued to play well and Tyler Lokey forced the third of four turnovers and gave the Cats the ball deep in Kenny territory. Lee scored from four yards out for a 35-21 halftime edge. Kenny closed the gap to 35-28 with a 14-yard Wolford to Fullwood strike to open the third quarter. Later in the quarter, Merchant had his second take away to set up a score. He intercepted Wolford at the 38-yard line. Four carries by Lee parked the ball at the Crusader four and Lawler ran it in for a 42-28 edge. The Cats opened the scoring up with another big turnover. Eli Lee recovered a second blocked punt and two plays later Lawler scored from five yards out. The Carter PAT was good to put BCHS up 49-28. Kenny got a late score from Wolford to Tapper and Anthony James squashed the Kenny comeback with an interception at the Wildcat 13-yard line late in the game. The Wildcats had 443 yards of total offense but it was the key turnovers that were the deciding factor. Lee was again outstanding with 222 yards rushing. Lawler was again over the hundred yard mark with 101 yards on 19 carries. Boone had a trio of receptions for 89 yards. district crown since 2009. The Wildcats will host Creekside latoffs.

I have never seen a team so brokenhearted after a loss, said Coach Rock Rhoden. There wasnt a dry eye in the house because we knew that if Chaise hadnt have been injured we could have beaten them. Suwannee converted on a bad snap and a punt return and a long It was a challenging season for Rhoden, who had to learn the spread offense after a career coaching defense and the Wing T. But the enthuWhen these kids get to the high school they are going to be some thing special, said Coach Rhoden. Ive been coaching 14 years, nine of them at the middle school, and Ive never had a group of players that have worked this hard. They worked all summer at the high school and every game they went into they expected to win. These were greedy kids, they wanted to win. And they were smart. We had a team GPA at the start of the season of 3.5 and our seventh and eighth graders didnt have a single discipline referral all season long. They are a special bunch. Rhoden knows he will be rebuilding next season, but that is the nature of coaching middle school. Every year is a rebuilding year because the majority of your team is eighth graders, he said. The Wildcats wrapped up their first district champion ship since 2009 with a win over Bishop Kenny last Friday. Heres a look at how their opponents fared. a 44-20 victory over Jackson. It the Bulldogs were actually challenged for the district title having lost a district game earlier in the season. Colby Peters was 10 of 14 passing to propel the Bulldogs. exciting district game 14-13 on a blocked kick and a pair of Bilal Ally touchdowns. The Blue Dev ils blocked an extra point that would prove to be the difference in the game. 45-19 in a game that could have been important for Wildcat fans. Had Creekside lost its game with Nease, Palatka would have been the district runner-up and visited Baker County in the first round of the playoffs. Creekside won 23-20. roll right along, defeating Tallahassee Leon in Lake City 54-3. last week, Duval Charter was again the whipping boy, losing 58-0 at the hands of Weekie Wachee. on 68-12. nents, Bradford County, defeated Interlachen 68-0. The Tornadoes are 6-3 on the season. Friday night the Wildcats took the district slugfest with Bishop Kenny. Though the Wildcats had over 400 yards total offense, it was four turnovers that were the key to the game. The win means BCHS hosts Creekside in ber 16. This week BCHS will take on traditional rivals Bradford County, which is coming off a huge win against Interlachen. Heres a look at how Coach Ryan Sulkowski views the two games. Press: This week we will face our traditional rivals, Bradford County. How are rivalry games different from an ordinary game? Sulkowski: I wouldnt say they are very different, but there is always a certain desire to play well and gain bragging rights, so to speak. Most of these kids do not understand the background to this game and the rivalry, although their parents dislike the team from Starke. I almost prefer the kids approach that it is just another opportunity to play on a Friday night in Macclenny. This year it serves as a tune up game for the following week. We have been pretty good at bouncing back this season, win or lose, and they know what is at stake on Friday night and will be ready to play. The Press: The Wildcats forced four turnovers against Kenny. To what degree did defensive pressure up front key the win? For a team like Bishop Kenny, turnovers do not happen often so to force them into four of them was amazing. The combination of outstanding coverage and a relentless pass rush aided in this. John Wolford had only thrown three interceptions all season and to make him panic into throwing two in our game was satisfying. Blayne Merchant and Anthony James made outstanding plays on the ball and the result was two huge plays in the game. We knew it would be tough to get sacks on him, but felt if we could get enough pressure to make him move we would be successful. Not to mention we had guys in the throwing windows that normally would not be there. It was a great performance by our defense. The Press: Falon Lee was again outstanding. How much of that can be credited to his playing single platoon football and coming in fresh? I have said it before and certainly will say it again it has everything to do with that. He runs like a man on a mission. We had to look at it from another perspective. We are asking him to run as hard as he can 25-30 times a game and it just seemed logical to limit his defensive reps. I thought our line played very well, most notably Jon Kinney. We saw a different side of Jon the other night and Falon was very comfortable following him. To see how much better Falon is through nine games this season is amazing. He is only a few yards shy of being Baker Countys second all-time leading rusher and is roughly 500 yards shy of taking the single season rushing yardage record and nine touchdowns shy of the single season rushing touchdown record. The Press: The Tornadoes are coming off a 68-0 win over Interoffset what might be considered a relaxing or letdown after the big district championship win? Our goal is never to relax or let off the gas. We have some good momentum going right now and need to continue with that. This is a week also though to possibly give a guy or two a little rest if they are banged up to get them ready for a play-off run. We make those decisions on an the blood rivalry. The Press: Last week you talked about this group being under the radar. It must be satisfying to then turn around and take the championship with this group. Very satisfying. I have said all year that this group is just a mess, but in a good way. The personality of this team is to go out and prove each week that it can compete with anyone, but have so much fun doing it. I went back this weekend and looked at so many of the pictures of our guys after the game Friday night. The smiles they had on their faces along with the fact I know each of them so well was so meaningful to me as a head coach. Our Baker County underdogs went over to Bishop Kenny and did what no one believed we were capable of doing. That makes it even sweeter. Coach SulkowskiCoach: forcing Kenny into four turnovers the key How others did...BOB GERARD | SPOR T S Excitement, enthusiasm, and hard work. Those are Coach Charles Ruises watch words as the Wildcat basketball team prepares to open its season November 15 at the Baldwin Pre-Season Classic. The Wildcats have been working hard over the off-season with some big wins against opponents from Alabama and Georgia at their camp in Tallahassee. They are concentrating on conditioning and agility drills designed to increase defensive intensity and overall strength. Were going to surprise some people, said Ruise. We were a very young team last year and it showed. This year we have some more experience and we are expecting big things. Ruise returns four starters from last years rotation. Johnny Lamb, Cameron Mack, his son Charles Ruise Jr. and Jesse Gardner bring much-needed exCombs and Brandon Lewis will put in valuable minutes as they are coming into the varsity from last seasons JV team. Where we are most improved is in our defensive pressure, commented Ruise. We will be much better this year at applying pressure all the way down The Cats will look to control the tempo of the game on both sides of the ball but have the ability to score quick points in transition. Terry Parker is the returning district champion, but Bishop Kenny is also a very dangerous squad, November 21 versus Newberry.Swim team benetThe Baker High Wildcat swim team is sponsoring a fund raiser with a grand prize of a threenight, four-day vacation at any Bluegreen Resort based on availability.
