A bad battery about the size of
a nickel caused a roughly seven-
hour delay in the reporting of Baker
County's election results last week
and exposed how small oversights
can have big impacts when they oc- PHoro S Jo AoNGro
cur on election night. A dead battery, similar to the one

said, until about 4:30 pm when her
staff began setting up to download early voting totals, which are usu-
ally the first results announced after polls close at 7 pm.
That's when elections staff discovered a small battery manufac-
tured by Sony, which powers the memory card storing early voting
results, was dead, and the information was lost.
"We said well, we have to re-run all the early voting ballots," the
elections supervisor said the following day. "We go in there and get
three [voting] machines going, putting ballots in. That took us up un-
til about 7:30."
The election night glitch was a first for Ms. Crawford and her two
full-time employees, plus the county's IT manager, who assists dur-
ing elections. The office is well known for processing election results
quickly. In fact, Baker County is usually the first of Florida's 67 to re-
port its totals to the Florida Division of Elections in Tallahassee.
When it came time to download the recount tallies from the three
voting machines, elections officials, having never done this before, re-
alized they failed to assign each machine's memory card a unique ID.

fleeing truck thief


A Jacksonville man is in cus-
tody in Baker County early this
week following a high-speed
chase that began in Sanderson
and ended in Columbia County
on Interstate to the morning of
November 12.
Breon Walker, 21, who po-
lice later learned was wanted on
a Duval County warrant
for violating probation,
was chased down by a
sheriffs department
K-9 dog shortly after
his stolen 1998 Ford
pickup veered off the
interstate and struck a
tree.
Deputy Patrick Mc-
Gauley said he and Cpl.
Tony Norman reached
speeds of go mph as the
pickup, which had been Breo
stolen earlier in Jack-
sonville, headed west from the
CR 229 exit through west Baker
County just before 8 am.
The officer said Mr. Walker
leaped over a barrier fence off
the north shoulder and fled
on foot as the K-9 Tango was

for bite wounds to the shoul-

deputies.
He was brought to Baker
County later that day and fac-

driving, fleeing police,
carrying a concealed
weapon, possession of
a weapon by a convict-
ed felon and resisting

Deputy McGauley
said he saw the semi-
automatic pistol recov-
ered next to the truck
fall out of the suspect's
waistband as he dashed
Iker for the fence.

in her family who served in the military going back
four-plus generations.
"It's a way to teach the children about Veterans
Day and the importance of remembering veterans
for their service to our country," Mrs. Jacobs said
before the group weaved their way through the
property, looking for veteran's graves without flags.
"It's sad to see the ones with no flowers or flags,"
she said.
After walking more than two thirds of the cem-
etery and distributing dozens of flags and red, white
and blue caps, the ladies ran out of materials.
The flags, about 40 large ones and a number of
smaller ones, and the hats came from Laura Jacobs'
husband, who distributes them at Tea Party rallies.
Next year, she plans to bring more.
She said her heart goes out to the veterans whose
family members may have passed on or moved
away from the area, leaving their graves without
Old Glory flying overhead.
"We do it for the kids, but also as a tribute to
them," Laura Jacobs said. "And I like to think they
hear it."

'Disc' delayed results


From page 1
So after downloading the first
machine's data, the computer ac-
cepting the voting results would
not accept additional results be-
cause they appeared to be du-
plicate results from the first ma-
chine. Staff then assigned the
cards from the two other ma-
chines unique IDs and fed two-
thirds of the early voting bal-
lots through the machines once
again.
But after adding up the num-
ber of early voting ballots run
through all three machines, the
total was more than looo ballots
short of the total noted after early
voting ended three days before -
5479 ballots.
"That's when I went back into
the vault and found a bag [of ear-
ly voting ballots] I had missed,"
explained Debbie Cain, assistant
supervisor of elections. Those
ballots were then fed through a
voting machine, but the total was
still off by 673 ballots.
The clock had passed 1 am.
"That's when we were in panic
mode," said Ms. Cain. "Big time
panic mode."
In a last ditch effort, though
tired and despondent, they de-
cided to collect all the early vot-
ing ballots, which were in bags la-
beled with the date they were cast
during early voting, and lay them
out in chronological order.
"Every night we take the bal-
lots out of the early voting bin..."


Ms. Cain said. "We put them in a
bag and [write] 'Early Voting' on
them and the date and time, and
we seal them before taking them
into the vault. We did that every
night. When we got all the bags
laid out, we saw Tuesday, Octo-
ber 30 was missing. And I knew
they were in there, because we
toted them every night."
On a shelf in the vault, they
soon found two bags dated Oc-
tober 30, but labeled "Absentee,"
denoting the ballots had arrived
via the mail. But inside the bags
were ballots with the letters 'EV'
printed in the top right corner,
marking them as early voting
ballots.
After running those ballots
through the voting machine
about 2 am, elections staff had fi-
nally found the unaccounted for
673 ballots.
"We had worked from Satur-
day the 27th getting here at six
in the morning, and not leaving
until eight at night, for eights day
straight," said Ms. Cain of early
voting.
"We got Sunday off, thank
the Lord, but then we started
two more hectic days," she said.
"That's not an excuse for what
happened, but it was a lot of
stress."
The election results were
unofficial until the canvassing
board Ms. Crawford, county
Judge Joey Williams and county
Commissioner Adam Giddens -


certified the outcome on Novem-
ber 18, two days after the dead-
line for absentee ballots to arrive
from overseas.
This week the outcome was
final; the incumbents having
swept the three races for local of-
fices, some by slimmer margins
that others.
The final vote tallies: for
sheriff, Joey Dobson 8656
(76.91%), Cameron Coward
2598 (23.09%); for county com-
mission district 3, Gordon Crews
5680 (51.42%), Leonard Davis
5367 (48.58%); and for coun-
ty commission district 5, Mark
Hartley 5955 (53.67%), Eddie
Davis, Jr. 5141 (46.33%).
Elections officials will not
soon forget the 2012 contest.
Ms. Crawford said in the fu-
ture more care will be taken in
labeling ballot bags and memory
card batteries will be replaced
before each election or the cards
will be swapped with ones that
don't need batteries.
"It [the election] would've
been finished the first time if the
battery hadn't been dead. That's
when we had to reload every-
thing ... she added. "We put all
the ballots in the vault in case we
have to have a recount and this
shows the machine counts ac-
curately because all the ballots
were put back in and the total
came out exactly the same as it
did when early voting ended ... I
don't want the voters to wonder."

for hunting on November 2."
The truck driven by Cyn-
thia Gordon pulled away. Hoyle
stopped the vehicle once it was
out of sight of the four men and
escorted it to the residence,
where the other officers were ex-
ecuting the warrant about 11:3o
am.
They were looking for illegal
deer and items commonly used
to take or process deer.
The Department of Correc-
tions K-9 team was contacted
to help locate the four men, but
before they could arrive, Officer
Hoyle heard someone say, "Come
get us" over a radio under the
truck's seat. Hoyle then had Ms.
Gordon take him back to pick up
the subjects.
"When the men saw the truck,
they came running out of the
woods, dragging two bucks," said
Gill. "They were very surprised to
see Officer Hoyle step out of the
truck."
The six people have been
charged with approximately 30
different wildlife law violations;
nine illegally taken deer were
seized, including a large buck
in velvet that was confined to a


small island during the Tropical
Storm Debbie flood. Four guns
were seized.
The violations for each person
were:
Mr. Stokes: two counts of
taking deer out of season, one
count of taking deer at night,
one count of illegal method, two
counts possession of illegally tak-
en deer.
Mr. Johnson: one count of
taking deer out of season, two of
hunting license violations.
Mr. Jones: two counts deer
out of season, two counts illegal
method, two hunting license vio-
lations.
Dustin Rhoden: two counts
illegal possession.
Brian Harris: one count il-
legal possession of alligator, one


count possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis.
The juvenile: five counts tak-
ing/attempting to take deer out
of season, three counts taking/
attempting to take deer by ille-
gal method, two counts illegal
possession, one count baiting in
WMA, two hunting license in-
fractions, three warnings for ille-
gal WMA access.

Baker County deserves.


Your confidence in me and the men and women of the Baker

you, but for you when you need me. I look forward to continuing

to live up to your expectations and make you proud of the Baker

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR



'She sat back when'

Dear Editor:
Thank God for getting me and my family through this election. It
has been a long 18 months. Although Cameron (Coward-the writer's
son and unsuccessful candidate for sheriff) didn't win, he can hold his
head high because he ran a clean campaign.
As for me, I had to hold back a lot of feelings:
I sat back when the Fair Association told me Cameron couldn't
have a booth at the county fair this year. He had a great one last year.
I sat back when Cameron was not allowed to have a booth at the
July Fourth celebration at City Park, and no one was allowed to pass
out campaign materials. Really? What's the reason we celebrate it?
I sat back when we were told by the Macclenny code officer to take
down a sign on the back of our personal vehicle because it was too
early for political signs.
I sat back when our sheriffs name was in lights on the ferris wheel
at the county fair, despite the prohibition on booths and the ban on
illumination of political signs.
I sat back when a battery in the vote counting machine went dead,
delaying the results, and the next morning hearing that three bags of
early votes had been missing. Come on people, didn't you know it was
voting day?
I sat back when Sheriff Dobson accused me of hacking into the
Press poll to get people to vote numerous times for Cameron. I should
take it as a compliment that I'd be smart enough to do that!
I sat back when a city employee wrote letters to the editor slam-
ming Cameron on the St. Johns County shooting he was involved in
that resulted in the loss of life. And when that same employee drove
around in a city van wearing a Joey Dobson shirt and yelling obsceni-
ties. Our tax dollars at work!
So it's all over now, and I may have lost a few friends in the pro-
cess, but I gained 2600 new ones. As for the "Boom!" painted by the
sheriffs supporters on our campaign signs election night, that's okay
too it's probably all they knew how to spell.

You'll get

what you

voted for
Dear Editor:
Thanks to those of you who
cast your ballot for Mr. Obama
or did not vote at all last week.
By doing so you guaranteed
higher taxes, socialized medi-
cine, fewer jobs, higher unem-
ployment, increased poverty
and continued deficit spend-
ing, not to mention gay mar-
riage and continued late-term
abortions.
Have you heard about the
coming layoffs that are directly
related to sequestration? Ap-
proximately 325,000 defense
jobs and about 420,000 non-
defense jobs eliminated. You
voted for that too.
What about Benghazi and
the four Americans murdered
there?
Thanks also to the main
stream media. They did an ex-
cellent job these last four years
covering this administration's
fanny!
When gas and electricity
prices keep going up because
fewer permits are being issued,
coal mines shut down and
more regulation are imposed,
don't complain.
You are getting exactly what
you voted for.

Arrogant


disregard'
Dear Editor,
I appeal to you because re-
porter Joel Addington cannot
get his facts straight regarding
a story he did on the tree plant-
ing ceremony that was sup-
posed to mark a special tribute
to by beloved daughter Deanna.
In last week's paper he sub-
mitted a correction and even
after I corrected him over the
phone and in person that the
two women who spoke at the
ceremony were my daughters,
he submitted a correction nam-
ing my daughters as my sisters.
I am disgusted with him and
his arrogant disregard of my
tearful comments about his
article. He has deeply hurt my
family.

'Ugly lights'
Dear Editor:
I used to brag about how
beautiful downtown Macclenny
was at Christmas, but I haven't
in a long time. I see they are
putting up those dirty-looking
snowflake lights again.
What happened to the pret-
ty multi-colored garland that
once draped downtown Mac-
clenny?

"I have found the most beautiful dress for
the wedding," said wife Kelley as she walked
into the living room carrying my laptop.
"That's good."
"No," she said. "It's great. Look at it."
She showed me a picture of a sapphire-blue
floor length dress. It was, indeed, very beau-
tiful and surprisingly inexpensive.
"I found it on this website.
It gets nothing but great re-
views." MY

If you are a woman read- THE
ing this column, you im- ROBER
mediately want more infor-
mation. What does he mean by "sparkly?"
Does he mean it's covered in rhinestones, or
beading or sequins? Define "sparkly."
If you are a man reading this column, you
know exactly what I mean. It's ... sparkly.
That's the best I can do. If I were a wom-
an I could go to great lengths describing the
kind of sparkles and what made them up.
I could talk about how they were affixed to
the dress, whether they were sewn or glued.
But I'm not a woman. In fact I am about
as far from being a woman as you can get, so
to me, sparkly is ... well ... sparkly. That's it
in a nutshell.

Slashes door with knife


An irate girlfriend is arrested


Police arrested a south Mac-
clenny woman the evening of
November 8 after she attempted
to enter a bathroom where her
boyfriend was hiding by striking
it repeatedly with a kitchen knife.
Sheila Zajkowski, 48, initially
denied when questioned by Dep-
uty Brandon Kiser that she dam-
aged the door, then admitted it,
explaining an argument started
because boyfriend William Hub-
bard "is a dumb a--."
The boyfriend, 55, locked him-
self in the bathroom of his camp-
er trailer when an altercation
about 6:20 pm became heated
and Ms. Zajkowski grabbed the

Semi-trucks continue to cause property damage
traveling through downtown Macclenny.
While navigating a tight turn onto S. 5th St. from
the westbound lane of East Macclenny Avenue (US
90), the rear wheels on a semi's trailer struck the
front end of a sedan waiting at the US 90 traffic light
the morning of November 8.
Vehicles at the lights on 6th and 5th streets south
of US go often have to back up to avoid similar col-


lisions when tractor trailers turn down those roads
en route to the interstate.
Nobody was hurt in last week's accident, but the
2008 red Nissan four-door driven by Tammy D.
Brownlee, 34, of Sanderson was disabled and towed
from the scene shortly after the 10:30 am wreck, ac-
cording to police.
Neither the black 2011 semi-truck, owned by
Marten Transport LTD of Indiana, nor its trailer,
was damaged in the encounter. Its driver, Martin
Gentile, 52, of Erie, PA, was ticketed for crossing the
center line of a highway, said investigating Deputy
Johnny Hodges.


Voter says he disrupted polling

place after getting 'the runaround'


A Macclenny man was
charged with disorderly conduct
for disrupting the west Macclen-
ny voting precinct at the ag cen-
ter on election day, November 6.
Poll worker Gail Rhoden told
Deputy Jacob Satterwhite that
Corey Fetz Sr., 30, of Glen St.
Mary was cursing and causing a
disturbance when he entered the
building about 1 pm.
After refusing several requests
to calm himself, Mr. Fetz alleg-
edly attempted to leave with his
ballot. When told he could not do
that, he then ripped it into pieces
and tossed it into the air before
exiting.
The deputy said Mr. Fetz was
a passenger in a Jeep stopped
shortly after on CR 23A north
based on a vehicle description
given at the polling place.
He told Deputy Satterwhite
he "was frustrated" and "got the
runaround" on where he was



Welding


trailer is


stolen at


229 tract
A welding trailer believed to
be valued in excess of $10,000
was reported stolen from a log-
ging site at the Dupont mining
operation off SR 228 southeast
of Macclenny the weekend be-
fore last.
Roger Pickett of P&S Logging
of Hilliard reported the theft on
November 6 from a remote lo-
cation where equipment was
parked three days earlier.
The trailer had a welding ma-
chine attached, along with a tool
box. Also stored on it were an
estimated $2000 worth of tools
and equipment and a hydraulic
hose machine valued at $3000.
Deputy Daryl Mobley said tire
tracks led from the area to a near-
by dirt road that connects to 228.
In other vehicle thefts, a util-
ity trailer belonging to the Baker
County Recreation Department
was taken November 5 or 6 from
the yard off North Boulevard in
Macclenny.
Donald Combs, the depart-
ment director, told Deputy Jacob
Satterwhite the trailer is worth
$5000.
Melissa Foster returned to
her 2005 Volkswagen that was
parked overnight November 7
on South 6th St. in Macclenny to
find the rear glass smashed and
property missing.
She told Deputy Koty Crews
that it included a $200 pair of
sunglasses and a video player
worth $300.


supposed to vote.
In other recent arrests:
Christopher Mitchem, 32, of
Jacksonville was charged with
selling door-to-door without a
peddler's license in northwest
Macclenny the afternoon of No-
vember lo.
Deputy Clements Leo said he
questioned the suspect at an ad-
dress on Copper Field Circle after
a suspicious person report about
4:40. Mr. Mitchem was inside
the residence attempting to sell a
vacuum cleaner.
He had been warned earlier by
Deputy Ben Anderson to cease
the activity, and was arrested on
the misdemeanor count.
Paul Wilkerson, 37, of Sand-
erson was jailed early on Novem-
ber 3 for drunk driving after a
Florida Highway Patrol trooper
saw him at the wheel of a 1993
Toyota parked on Sherman St. in
Glen St. Mary about 1:3o am.
Trooper K.M. Boatright said
Mr. Wilkerson, stopped for not
wearing a seat belt, failed field
sobriety testing and his blood
alcohol level at county jail mea-


sured .126, nearly twice the legal
limit.
Deputy Brad Doughtery ar-
rested Mildred Pope, 22, of Lake
Butler after stopping her speed-
ing 2011 Nissan on CR 121 near
Mud Lake Rd. shortly before 1
am on November 12.
A computer check revealed
she has four prior license suspen-
sions and was wanted in Union
County for failure to appear in
court on a trespass charge.
George Schlarbaum, 40, of
Sanderson briefly ran from of-
ficers during the early morn-
ing hours of November 12 when
they found him at a residence on
George Taber Blvd. in Glen.
Deputy Leo said police learned
the whereabouts of the suspect,
who was wanted on a warrant for
violating probation, and went to
the address about 4 am.
The officer missed Mr. Schlar-
baum with a taser shot after he
resisted being handcuffed and
attempted to flee. He was coaxed
out of nearby woods under threat
of more taser rounds.


Van rollover injures three
Three of six young passengers of a van that overturned in a ditch on
Lilla Harvey Rd. in north Baker County on November 5 were taken to
Fraser Hospital with minor injuries.
The southbound 2003 Dodge van driven by Keegan Ferguson, 16, of
Sanderson went out of control and came to rest on the driver's side just
south of Combs Rd., said investigating Trooper J. Beagle of the Florida
Highway Patrol.
The accident occurred at 5:15 pm and all occupants were wearing
seat belts.
David Johnson Jr., 15, and Chandler Crawford, 8, of Sanderson,
along with Colby Hathcox, 16, and James Bernett, 12, of Macclenny,
were taken to the hospital by rescue ambulance.
The driver and passengers Caleb Parker, 16, and Dawson Ferguson,
12, of Sanderson were uninjured.

Deputy Kiser noted the door
had three holes and multiple
gashes in it consistent with the
boyfriend's version of events.
She was booked at county jail
for aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon.
The couple has a history of do-
mestic violence and police have
been called multiple times to
their residence on Brent Lane in
the Dixie Trailer Park.
In another domestic incident
resulting in an arrest the past
week, a mother was charged with
battery on her son as he was pre-
paring to leave their residence on


Adams Rd. near Macclenny.
Deputy Earl Lord arrested Ju-
lie Crews, 43, after noting swell-
ing and bruising on the right
face of Matthew Griffis, 18, who
alleged his mother grabbed him
from behind by the neck and re-
peatedly struck him during an ar-
gument late on November 9.
Both Mr. Griffis and a female
witness told the officer Mrs.
Crews became angry as her son
was gathering his belongings.
Deputy Lord said he detected
a "strong odor of alcohol" on the
mother when he questioned her.


Store clerk claims 'blackmail'


An employee at the Macdenny
Walmart claims she was black-
mailed into issuing nearly $1000ooo
worth of gift cards to two men
during a recent eight-day period.
Megan Muncy, 24, of Lake
City came under the scrutiny of a
store security employee after her
cash drawer came up short $925
on four dates between October
28 and November 4.
A store surveillance video
showed her issuing a $50 gift
card to a black male who gave her
$10 on October 28. The next day
she accepted $10 from a white
male and issued a $400 card.
On November 3 and 4, the
same black male gave Ms. Muncy
$5 for a $200 card and $100 for
a $300 card.
In that last transaction, the
cashier also refunded the black
male $100 in smaller bills.
Interviewed by Deputy John-
ny Hodges, Ms. Muncy said she
knew the black male only as
"Ulysses" and she issued him the
cards after he threatened to show
a compromising video of her to
her boyfriend and family.
She said the video was made
at a party in Lake City, adding
she also feared physical violence
because the suspect has been
"physical" to her in the past.
Ms. Muncy claimed not to
know the identity of the white
male, who she said was sent to
the store by Ulysses.
Deputy Hodges arrested her
for grand theft and counterfeit-
ing the gift cards, both felonies.
In an unrelated arrest for
theft, a bar patron was charged
with stealing a cell phone and
$50 cash from another patron at
Mac's Liquors early on Novem-
ber 8.
Robert Kirkland told Deputy
Jeremiah Johnson he left the
items on the bar counter briefly
just before 1 am and returned to
find them gone.
A surveillance video allegedly
showed Gina Norman, 51, take
the property and walk away.
Based on information from
a bar employee, Deputy Shawn
Bishara went to Ms. Norman's
residence north of Glen St. Mary
and she initially denied involve-
ment.
The suspect attempted to slam
the door on the deputy, who said
he and Deputy Mike Clark then
entered the residence. The cell
phone and cigarette pack that
had contained the cash were on

Campaign 'rewarding': Coward


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypresscom


Cameron Coward lost his bid to
become the county's next sheriff, but
he learned a lot during his first cam- -
paign for public office, which may
not be his last.
"I have a lot of stuff on my plate
still, but I wouldn't rule out running
in the future," said Mr. Coward, 28,
in a post-election interview with The
Press early this week.
"It all depends on what the atmo-
sphere is like," he said. "I thought
with this being a right-leaning coun- r F
ty, or a community that goes Repub- " -
lican in most national and state rac-
es, a conservative would've garnered
more than 20 percent.
"Elections are all about the num-
bers and we didn't reach the num-
bers on November 6. But who's to
say we won't four years, eight years
or 12 years from now."
Mr. Coward, who works for the St.
Johns County Sheriffs Office and is
studying for a master's degree, knew
the race would be difficult, but he
anticipated doing better than gar-
nering 2598 votes, or 23.09 percent
of all those cast in the race.
"I expected 30 percent and was push-
ing for 40 percent," he said. "I knew getting
to 50-plus-1 would be extremely tough, but
I thought after 20 years people would be
ready for something different. I was a little
shocked."
Still, he called the experience the highlight
of my life.
"It's been extremely rewarding to meet so
many people I would've never met before,"

Coward (standing at right) listens as election results are announced.


Mr. Coward said. "There are a lot of great
people in Baker County and I was fortunate
to meet them."
Also surprising for the Republican can-
didate was the election-night vandalism to
nearly all his campaign signs. Somebody also
used dirt and a "Cameron for Sheriff' yard
sign to replicate a grave on the courthouse
lawn.
"I was expecting something, but I didn't
think they would go that far to mess up


nearly all my signs," said Mr. Cow-
ard. "Those are really expensive."
He said one large sign near
the interstate on his property was
spared, but the rest were painted
with the word "BOOM!"
Mr. Coward said he didn't know
exactly what was meant bythe graf-
fiti, other than the sheriffs support-
ers gloating after his opponent's
victory. He said he would've liked
to keep the signs, perhaps to use in
the future or for sentimental value,
but he understands they represent
"casualties" of political warfare.
He also said he didn't report the
vandalism to the sheriffs office. "I
didn't want to mess up their crime
stats," Mr. Coward said in jest, ref-
erencing his disagreement with
Sheriff Joey Dobson on the coun-
ty's crime rate.
Mr. Coward also said he doesn't
see the election as a loss.
"You go to school to learn, and
I got schooled," he explained. "But
I'm definitely walking away on
the positive side. The office wasn't
mine to lose, so I can't lose some-
thing I don't have."
His advice for others planning
to run for local office: "I would start


NEFSH re-certified

A worldwide accreditation organization, CARF International, grant-
ed Northeast Florida State Hospital in Macclenny its second three-year
stamp of approval late last month.
Six programs in all -case management, community integration, cri-
sis stabilization, inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment were
evaluated by CARF, an independent, nonprofit organization that ac-
credits health and human service providers internationally.
"On balance, NEFSH provides quality inpatient and outpatient
mental health services that clearly benefit the persons served," reads
an October 25 letter from CARF president Brian J. Boon, Ph.D., to
NEFSH administrator Joe Infantino."The organization [NEFSH] has
implemented extensive quality assurance processes that are used to
promote continuous quality assurance. All levels of the organization
are committed to its mission of quality, person-centered services. The
organization demonstrates substantial conformance with CARF stan-
dards."
The letter also makes recommendations for improvement, including
yearly analysis of plans and data and better performance evaluations
for personnel, among others.
NEFSH has been operating here since the late 1950s and first sought
CARF accreditation in 2009 in response to efforts in the Florida Legis-
lature to privatize management of the facility.
"One of the charges on the privatization issue was that all the pri-
vately-managed facilities had accreditation, but none of the state man-
aged facilities had accreditation," Mr. Infantino said three years ago.


saving money. And if you really
want to win, pick a race that's winnable."
Mr. Coward said he finds solace in that his
candidacy may have forced the sheriff to cam-
paign harder than he might have otherwise.
If his race motivated anyone else to run for
office or to become more conservative, or if it
makes the sheriffs office more accountable to
the public, he said he believes that's a victory
in itself.

A throng of students atWestside Elementary paid tribute to

Shank ou!


I would like to take a moment and say Thank *
you. Although the final tally was lower than I -
anticipated, running for Sheriff has been one of
the highlights of my life. Baker County is full
of amazing people and I was humbled to have
had the chance to meet so many of you. It is
my hope that something in my campaign has
energized you into following the path you wish
to take, whatever it may be. Never let anyone
tell you that you can't do something. As long as
you keep at it, play by the rules, and stay posi-
tive; the sky's the limit. I'm not sure what the future holds for me, or what
God has in store for me down the road, in the next four, eight, or twelve
years; but I will remain committed to Baker County and making it the great-
est place to start a business and raise a family. Thank you to all those
who gave so much support, I am grateful and blessed to call Baker County
my home.

Making sense



of your cents Rose Nickle


Many aspects of our lives are
affected by the outcome of presi-
dential and local elections, espe-
cially the one last week. Howev-
er, our own individual happiness
is not one of them. If you're wait-
ing on a president to fix your life,
you're going to be waiting a long
time.
It's not their job to fix your
life.
The matter of your money is
no different. It burns me when
I hear a person blame the gov-
ernment for his or her personal
financial woes. They say things
like, "Well, if we can just get so-
and-so elected, our problems will
go away." Or "My life would be so
much better if taxes were lower."
Or my favorite: "The younger
generation should really start
thinking about retirement, be-
cause the way the government is
going, there won't be any Social
Security."
I hear that one quite abit from
well-meaning elders. Actually,
every generation needs to plan
for retirement, regardless of the
condition of the Social Security
program. Why would a person
knowingly put all of his hopes
in a government program for re-
tirement income? It was imple-
mented as supplemental income
to provide the basic necessities of
the retired, not so that we can all

once our working days are over.
The government plays a very
crucial role in this wonderful
country of ours, but it is your re-
sponsibility to secure your finan-
cial future. Never rely on the gov-
ernment for something like that,
not only because they stink at it,
but because it's not their job.
Taxes, Social Security and
other issues are huge and surely
affect our personal finances (and
can have detrimental effects on
entities like small businesses),
but they don't make or break us.
The choices we make do that.
Take your financial life into
your own hands. When it comes
to your money, plan for the worst
and hope for the best. Set aside
a small amount in a designated
place, whether it's a Roth IRA ac-
count or a mason jar under your
bed. Live within your means so
that you are able to plan ahead
for retirement and emergencies.
If you vote based on who you
think will fix your life, you're set-
ting yourself up to be sorely dis-
appointed.

Mental health, drug programs


Are they effective? Agency wants to know


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
If you use substance abuse
treatment or mental health ser-
vices in Baker County, or know
someone who does, Lutheran
Services Florida (LSF) wants to
hear from you.
LSF is being paid $92 mil-
lion a year by the state to man-
age contracts between the Flor-
ida Department of Children and
Families (DCF) and some 50
mental health and substance
abuse counseling agencies in 23
counties in north central Florida.
Known as the region's "Man-
aging Entity," LSF will soon be-
gin to negotiate new contracts
with service providers, and
though only a few operate here
today, the Tampa-based non-
profit wants direction from the
community on how well those
providers are doing.
Ronald Graham, director of
community engagement for LSF,
said anyone who uses substance
abuse or mental health services,
or who comes into contact with
those who do, should contact Ste-
phen Holland, coordinator of the
Baker Prevention Coalition, a lo-
cal nonprofit launched in 2010 to
combat drug and alcohol abuse.
Mr. Holland serves as chair-
man of an LSF advisory com-
mittee for DCF's Districts 3 and
8. Mr. Graham said LSF wants
to know the answers to three
specific questions: what sub-
stance abuse and mental health
services exist here, what's good
about them, and what can be im-
proved?
The responses will come in
handy when evaluating potential
providers, said Mr. Graham.
"When we do these contracts,
we want to say these are the ser-
vices that we've heard the com-
munity wants," he explained.
"Can you provide that? Are you
willing to provide that? If you
are, great; if not, well try to find
somebody who can. We're not
going to just take the same con-
tract you've had, add three more
years and keep going."
Answers may come from those
with drug problems or mental ill-
ness, their family members or
friends, or emergency room staff,
police and other first respond-
ers. They should send their feed-
back to Mr. Holland by e-mail at
bakerprevention@nefcom.net or
relay it by phone at (904) 654-
4237.
Input from providers has been
solicited by Mr. Holland and
LFS, but only a handful of enti-
ties have replied thus far.
During the prevention coali-
tion's board meeting last week,
local providers and coalition
partners spoke about the gaps
in services they've seen here and
potential gaps that could be on
the way due to DCF's outsourcing
of contract management.
Chief among the concerns is
that after June 30, 2013, North-
east Florida State Hospital

(NEFSH) will cease providing
adult mental health services to
residents here through its inpa-
tient crisis stabilization unit and
outpatient clinic, Community
Behavioral Healthcare Services
(CBHS) on West Lowder Street.
The crisis unit takes in highly
unstable individuals for up to 72
hours. The CBHS clinic offers
outpatient therapy, case manage-
ment and psychiatric care to local
residents.
Though the 13 employees that
operate both programs are paid
by the county, the county is re-
imbursed for the staffing costs by
DCF. The state funds essentially
all of the mental health and sub-
stance abuse services for Baker
County residents.
That arrangement will end
next summer, he said, due to the
state's privatization of substance
abuse and mental health contract
management statewide, said
NEFSH's top administrator Joe
Infantino this week
The move also means that
DCF's contracts with NEFSH,
which is managed by the state
agency, for "units of service" re-
imbursements, will also be ter-
minated after June 30, he said.
"The state can no longer con-
tract with itself," said Mr. Infan-
tino.
NEFSH cannot compete for
provider contracts, either, ac-
cording to an e-mail dated Octo-
ber 8, 2012, from DCF's assistant
secretary Rob Siedlecki to Mr.
Infantino.
"[DCF] has also determined
... it would not be appropriate for
the department or its treatment
facilities to compete for this work
in response to any solicitation
by [LSF]," Mr. Siedlecki's e-mail
states.
The state hospital and clinic
serve about 500 adults here, an
estimated 200 of whom have se-
vere, persistent mental illness,
substance abuse issues, or both.
Mr. Graham of LSF said many
with conditions like depression,
schizophrenia, bipolar disorder
or anxiety often turn to street
drugs to self medicate rather
than seek out treatment.
Who will fill the vacuum in
services left by NEFSH remains
unclear, but until LSF contracts
with a provider, it's likely exist-
ing patients will be referred to
providers out of the area. That,
however, presents difficulties for
those who lack reliable transpor-
tation as well as local authorities.
The sheriffs office operations
chief, Maj. Gerald Gonzalez, said
the loss of services at the state
hospital could result in more
mentally ill individuals being
jailed as an alternative to trans-
porting them to out-of-county
treatment facilities.
He estimated local deputies
encounter more than 1oo such
people each year, who have been
taken to NEFSH's crisis unit un-
der the state's Baker Act.
"It's worked better than I've
ever seen it," Maj. Gonzalez said


Austyne Nipper

Born November 6
Phillip Nipper and Kayla Bell
of Sanderson are pleased to an-
nounce the birth of Austyne Kyle
Nipper on November 6, 2012 at
Orange Park Medical Center.
He weighed 10 lbs., 3 oz. and
was 211/2 inches long. Austyne
joins siblings Hunter, Heather
and KatieAne Nipper.
Grandparents include Cur-
tis and Windy Miller of Glen St.
Mary, Donnie and Janice Griffis
of Sanderson and Eugene Nipper
of Macclenny.


of the current process.
But when that option is no
longer available, he said, send-
ing one of the six deputies on a
shift to Gainesville, for instance,
becomes inconvenient and the
individual is likely to land in jail
where the staff is ill-equipped to
handle them.
It also became apparent at
the prevention coalition's board
meeting, which took place No-
vember 5, that Baker County
lacks intensive outpatient treat-
ment as well as in-patient servic-
es for people addicted to drugs
and those with serious mental
disorders.
Chris Thomas is the director
of Baker Community Counseling
Services, the only licensed drug
counseling organization in the
county.
He said at the meeting he re-
cently sent a client to an out-of-
state detox center because it was
the nearest facility with an open
bed on a Sunday.
"We know [LSF] doesn't have
any more money for Baker Coun-
ty than it's had, so we have to fig-
ure out how to change the servic-
es we give to match the money,"
Mr. Thomas said, adding that
some $150,000 Baker County
receives for adult mental health
isn't enough to fund a quarter of
the cost for a crisis stabilization
unit without NEFSH's help.
"We're barely getting enough
to do the little we do," he said.
In fact, the current budget for
the crisis unit and CBHS clinic is
between $1 million and $1.5 mil-


lion, according to Mr. Infantino.
Sue Murphy, who is the coun-
ty health department's coordina-
tor for Healthy Start, a program
focused on the physical health of
children and mothers, said more
outreach and education is need-
ed because many people don't
know how to get help for sub-
stance abuse and mental health
problems.
She said 3o-to-40 percent of
her time is spent on the phone
referring clients to non-Healthy
Start services, and more and
more people at the health depart-
ment clinic have a combination
of physical and mental ailments.
"I've become much more a
referral coordinator than doing
the job I'm hired and paid to do,"
said Ms. Murphy.
But as the state searches for
ways to spend fewer dollars on
health and human services, like
hiring private groups to man-
age funding more efficiently,
it's important to know what's
working and what's not. Hear-
ing from providers is great, but
hearing from their customers, so
to speak, is better, said Mr. Gra-
ham.
He said contracting with pro-
viders will begin in February or
March and take some to months
to complete in all 23 counties
that makeup DCF Circuits 3 and
8.
"It's going to be an extended
process," he said.
That gives the community at
large about two months to let its
voice be heard.

In loving memory of
Robert Allen Conner
02/18/1936-11/05/2011
Beloved, it has been a year
since you went to Heaven to
be with loved ones and dear
friends gone on before you.
God saw you suffering and
knew you were tired, in pain
and needed rest and peace. He
took you from our arms to a
better place. We are comforted
knowing that you are in the em-
brace of our Lord and Savior.
You were the rock of our fam-
ily; always there, quiet, caring,
strong, hard working, capable
and true to the morals that are
the mark of a man. You were
a loving, devoted husband, an
adoring father, a dear son and
brother, and a faithful and car-
ing friend to all who knew you.
We miss you so much. Tears of
loss and grief will always be
just a thought away. We will
love you always and cherish
your memory in our hearts for-
ever.
YOUR FAMILY,
WIFE SANDRA,
CHILDRENv PAMEA (MATHEW),
KEmH (SHEREE)
SHER (BRYAN)

In loving memory of
'Granny Rose'
Rose Thompson Monte
God gave you your beauti-
ful angel wings to look over me,
Mom, Dad, Sis-sis, Jimmy and
Emma. Sending you big butter-
fly kisses. You will always be in
our hearts.
LOVE,
YOUR SLUGGER

To the very best husband,
Daddy and Papoo ever it's
been three years since we lost
you. They say time heals, but
we know only the blood of Je-
sus heals. It's only the blood of
the Lamb that was applied to
your life and ours that gives
us the blessed assurance that
one day we will see you again
in Heaven. We miss you more
than words can say! "And God
will wipe away every tear from
their eyes, there shall be no
more death, nor sorrow, nor
crying. There shall be no more
pain,for the former things have
passed away. Then he who sat
on the throne said, 'Behold, I
make all things new.' And he
said to me, Write for these
words are true and faithful."
Revelation 21:4-5

I want to thank everyone that believed in our conservative
message and cast a vote for me for county commission.
Thanks to my family, friends and supporters for all their
hard work and dedication.

Thanks also to the Baker County Republican Party and the
Baker County Women's Political Network for their support and contribution to
my campaign.
Special thanks to Danny Norton for the many hours of hard work and sincere
effort he contributed to this campaign.
Even though we did not win, I believe our message was heard due to the
closeness of this race. My campaign was a clean positive one, based on is-
sues and goals. Myself, and my supporters, never resorted to attacking my
opponent, for which I am very proud.
There were issues, I addressed or took a stand on, during this campaign,
which are of special concern to me. I will be working in the future to help
resolve or improve upon these issues.
Again, I thank you all for your support.
Paid for by Leonard Davis, Republican, for County Commissioner District 3.

None make state meet


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The BCHS Cross Country
team competed in the district
tournament November 2 in
Bradford County. The top 13 run-
ners out of more than 50 in both
the boys and girls categories ad-
vanced to the state competition.
The Wildcats failed to place
any runners at state but they
continued to improve on their
individual times. In the boys
event, Gainesville Eastside was
the overall winner in 17:31. Ja-
cob Stavley was the top Wildcat
runner, finishing in 26th place


in 21:25. Other Wildcat boys
results: Caleb Williford, 21:50
(28th place); Jared Stafford,
23:05 (35th); Stephen Brantley,
24:13 (42nd); and Tyler Hartley,
24:39 (43rd).
Bradford County won for the
girls in 21:12. Shea Robinson was
the top Wildcat runner, finishing
in 25:18 in 18th place.
Other girls times: Jena
Reeves, 25:22 (19th); Catherine
Davis, 29:46 (35th); and Julia
Rivest, 37:07 (45th).
The girls came close to mak-
ing state, falling short by only


1:45. "This finish has motivated
these girls for next season," com-
mented Coach Chris Armoreda.
The boys team finished with
its best time on a slow, twisting
and turning course.
Still, it was frustrating for Ar-
moreda.
"All season long Jacob and
Caleb wanted to post a time un-
der twenty minutes and if this
course didn't have as many tight
turns and passes, their meet time
would have equated to under 20
minutes," he said.


Vets praise students' tribute


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypresscom
Second and third graders at Macclenny Elemen-
tary saluted veterans with a 45-minute program the
morning of November 9 featuring patriotic songs
and re-enactments of iconic moments in American
history.
The event was a first for Dwayne Norman, one of
many current and retired service men and women
in the audience.
The medically retired Navy veteran's daughter at-
tends the north Macclenny school. "It was a great
program," said Mr. Norman. "It meant a lot to me
and a lot of other people; more than words can say."
Third graders packed the stage and flanked both
sides, occasionally mounting a stage set up in front
of the crowd to perform historic scenes like the Ma-
rines raising the American flag at the Battle of Iwo
Jima.
Second graders, meanwhile, sat with the audi-
ence and helped sing along to tunes, including God
Bless America by Lee Greenwood, the show's finale.
"I always teach the second graders the music, be-
cause it makes the sound fill the room, but I cannot
fit that many kids on the stage," said Macclenny El-
ementary music teacher Kinita Bishop, who orches-
trated the program. "It gives them something to look
forward to next year."
Also in the audience was Clay Green of Macclen-
ny, who's spent the last 19 years in the Air Force and
visits the school each year for the veterans program.
He said this year's show with students acting
out scenes that also included first responders on
9-11 and the Fallen Soldier combat memorial was
"the greatest one yet."
"It was awesome," he said while holding his
4-year-old daughter Carlie in his arms.
After he and other vets in the cafeteria were asked
to stand in recognition, the students, led by Tiffany
Thomas, not only sang the words to You Are Our
Heroes, they signed them, too.
"The students practiced singing and memorizing
music in music class only, which is 25 minutes every
six school days," explained Ms. Bishop, who tutors
students in other subjects as well.
"The actors practiced for a few minutes on the
early out days," she said. "We all practiced together

on the stage for the first time two days before the
show. We did a dress rehearsal the day before and
invited the first graders to come and watch. The to-
tal amount of time they spent practicing was about
4 and 1/2 hours."
For the music teacher, the highlight was seeing
the children performing together as a group, rather
than as individuals. "You saw a unit of performers
who are serious about what they are doing and the
message they are conveying," Ms. Bishop said.
"I also loved surprising a child with her father's
voice on a CD, because she had no idea that we had
that message from him to her and the veterans in
the audience," she said, referencing a voice message
from Luke Lauramore to his daughter Sierra that
was played between songs.
"He went from Macclenny to Fort Hood in Oc-
tober and has been sent to Afghanistan," said Ms.
Bishop. "Sierra's teacher, Abbey Woods, got in touch
with Sierra's parents and asked them if it would be
possible for him to send a message to her for our vet-
erans program. When the family returned from vis-
iting dad at Fort Hood, mom sent that to us with Si-
erra, but she had absolutely no idea what was on it."
School principal Debbie Fraser and Superinten-
dent Sherrie Raulerson both had kind words for the
music teacher to close the program.
"She does an outstanding job with our students,"
commented Ms. Fraser. ... Without her, we could
not put on a performance like this."
Ms. Raulerson added that the Veterans Day pro-
gram, which brought her to tears, was the best she'd
ever seen.

BOB GERARD I SPORTS
It wasn't pretty. Rivalry games
often aren't. But after a shaky
start the Wildcats got what they
wanted, a 20-12 win over the
Bradford Tornadoes on Novem-
ber 9.
Bradford brought the house
to Macclenny's Memorial Stadi-
um and for long periods of time
the Wildcats looked listless. But
some turnovers at key moments
and strong defensive play up
front paved the way for the Cats
to finish the season with an 8-2
record.
This Friday, the Wildcats host
the Creekside Knights (4-6) in
the opening round of the play-
offs at 7:30 pm. District run-
ner-up Bishop Kenny travels to
Ponte Vedra and provided that
they come out on top versus the
Knights, BCHS will face the win-
ner of that game.
It is the first playoff game
since 2009 and if the Wildcats
were looking ahead a bit it is un-
derstandable. But for the Torna-
does, who with district losses to
South Sumter and Mt. Dora were
knocked out of post-season play,


wf
be,

this was their playoff game.
The Tornadoes came out fired
up. For much of the first half
they seemed to want the game
more and it showed on the field.
The Wildcats struggled as the
Tornadoes' sophomore quarter-
back Jacob Luke moved the ball
around.
The Tornadoes got on the
board first at the end of the first
quarter, capitalizing on a fumble
in Wildcat territory. Luke found
Marco Grimsby at the Wildcat
10 and big running back Lyn-
dall Hampton ran it in from the
i-yard line. The PAT was no good
but the visitors held a 6-0 lead at
the start of the second period.
The Wildcats came back with
a big play that was the highlight
of the game. Falon Lee exploded
with a 69-yard touchdown run.
He broke containment, got a
good block from Mike Boone and
outraced the Tornado defend-
ers for the score. Jacob Carter
converted on the PAT to put the
Wildcats ahead to stay.
They added to the lead on the
next series. Jacob Luke threw a
pass to the sidelines that BCHS's

Jared Crews nearly intercepted.
Then on the very next play Luke
tempted fate with the same play.
Crews stepped in front of the
pass for the pick.
The Wildcats got the ball at
the Bradford 18 yard line. A per-
sonal foul put them inside the
ten and from there quarterback
Corey Lawler ran it in for the
score.
The PAT was no good and the
Cats went into the half up 13-6.
Both teams bounced back and
forth in the third quarter but nei-
ther team put together a scoring
drive. The Cats benefited from
interceptions by Brody Crews
and Rashodd Hadley and from
constant pressure on Bradford's
quarterback.
The final Wildcat drive was
set up by Natavian Griffin's and


CeCe Jefferson's sack, which
halted Bradford's effort. Falon
Lee ran every play on the drive
and finally pushed the ball into
the end zone from three yards
out. Carter added the PAT for a
20-6 lead.
Bradford narrowed the gap
late in the second half when a
pass from Luke to Grimsby gave
them the ball on the 1-yard line.
Hampton bulled it across for the
score but the conversion was no
good.
The win continues the recent
BCHS dominance over their tra-
ditional rivals. For years Brad-
ford had the edge but recently
it has been all Baker. The lack of
parity has taken some of the lus-
ter off the old contest, but it's still
very exciting when the two teams
square off.


Opponent action leading into playoffs


The BCHS Wildcats finished out their reg-
ular season with an 8-2 record after defeating
rival Bradford County and will face Creekside
in the first round of the state playoffs at Me-
morial Stadium on Friday. Here's a look at
how their opposition fared as they wrapped
up regular seasons.
Clay County ran all over Middleburg -
literally. Shannon Asbell rushed for 316 yards
on 32 carries and a trio of touchdowns in the
28-23 victory. Middleburg kept it close but
couldn't stop Asbell, who also recovered an
on-side kick to ice the game.
St. Augustine finished its season unde-


feated with a 35-15 win over Palatka. The loss
left the Panthers 4-6 on the season.
The Bolles Bulldogs head into the post-
season after a 48-14 trouncing of Episcopal.
The Bulldogs host Mt. Dora in the playoffs on
Friday.
The Columbia Tigers capped a 9-1 sea-
son with a 40-0 win over Suwannee County
in the "Old Oaken Bucket" series. The Tigers
host powerful Bartram Trail in the playoffs on
Friday.
The Parker Braves finished off their sea-
son with 49-28 win over Baldwin. The Braves
scored four quick touchdowns in the first


quarter to bank the win. They both finish the
season at 4-6.
The Duval Charter Eagles finished their
season with only one win as they lost 49-14 to
St. Johns Country Day.
The Kenny Crusaders warmed up for
their trip to Ponte Vedra as district runner-
up this Friday with a 21-7 win over West Nas-
sau. The Warriors gave the Crusaders all they
could handle.
The Paxon Eagles lost to Stanton 19-6 in
the game dubbed "The Brain Bowl," because
of the two schools' college prep magnet sta-
tus.


Coach expects


'physical' playoff

BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Wildcats will host the Knights of Creekside this Friday in the
first round of the state playoffs at 7:30 pm at Memorial Stadium. Tick-
ets are $8 general admission per FHSAA regulations. It is the first
playoff game for the Wildcats since 2009 when they defeated Madison
County 26-17 before losing on the road at Tallahassee Godby 26-19.
The Knights are 4-6 as opposed to the 8-2 Wildcats, but they didn't
back into the playoffs. They had to beat a good Nease Panther team
on their home field 23-20 to enter as district runner-up behind Ponte
Vedra.
If the Cats beat Creekside, they then face the winner of the Ponte
Vedra (9-1)/Bishop Kenny (7-3) game. Here's Coach Ryan Sulkowski's
take on Baker and Creekside.
How do we look health-wise going into the playoff game?
We are pretty healthy all things considered. A football season, espe-
cially with the very physical opponents we have played, can be rough
on the body and besides a few bumps and bruises, we are as healthy as
can be expected. We have taken a different approach to practices late
in the season to ensure that we stay this way. I believe it is paying off
for us and we will be at 100 percent on Friday night.
What do you expect to see from Creekside?
Another very physical football team. Creekside plays a very similar
style of offense and defense as us and has a lot of kids who run with a
relentless motor. They fly around to the football and do a good job of
moving guys around. We have to be ready for another physical game,
just like we did versus Clay earlier in the season.
They certainly have history on their side as well. Last year in the
playoffs they traveled to Bishop Kenny in the first round and knocked
off a lo-o district champion. Our kids have been made aware of this
and will be ready for the challenge.
The Cats continue to get takeaways when they need them the
most. How much of that "being in the right place at the right time" is
instinct and how much of it coached?
It's both. As coaches it is our job to put the kids in the right place to
make plays like we have been. The other half of that is the kids have to
be capable of making the play. Our guys have been able to do that and
I hope they can continue to perform at that level. We have done a great
job of executing on the defensive side of the ball and understanding
where they need to be in order to make those plays.
The Cats looked a little listless in the first period of the Bradford
game and the defense woke up in the second quarter. Is that a "hang-
over" from the district championship game?
We could look at it that way, but I give credit to Bradford. They
were a very good football team coming into Macclenny last Friday and
played with fire and passion. It is possible we thought we could "sleep"
our way through that game because of the accomplishment from the
week prior, but as coaches I think we knew that Starke would play us
hard and they did. Hats off to our guys for gutting out a rivalry game
win versus Bradford.
Are you planning any new wrinkles for the playoffs?
We always go into every game planning something our opponent
has not seen on film from the season and Creekside is no different. We
are adding a few new twists, but we will also rely heavily on what got
us to this point and made us district champions. Each week we will do
our best to exploit the opponent we have to face and as long as the kids
line up and execute it, we have been successful.


Lady Cats hit the


hard court this week


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
The Lady Wildcat basketball
team has been prepping the past
three weeks for the opening of
the season this week. On Thurs-
day, November 15 the girls meet
Forrest on the road in a district
match and on Friday host a very
tough Stanton squad.
First-year head coach Chris
Chisholm is enthusiastic about
the start of the season. "We're a
team that does a little of every-
thing. We have good passing,
we're solid defensively and can
shoot the ball," he said.

preseason

underway

Wildcat basketball fans get
their first look at this year's
squad this Thursday at Baldwin
High. The Cats will take part in
the Baldwin pre-season classic
and will be tipping off at 6 pm.
The Cats don't know yet who
they will face as that will be de-
cided in early round games. It's
a chance for fans to see the new-
look Wildcats. Coach Charles
Ruise has big hopes for the team.
He has spent much of the off-
season on strength and condi-
tioning drills to increase their
ability to use full-court defense
and pick up speed in the transi-
tion game.
The regular season opens No-
vember 20 at Clay High.


coach, has some returning start-
ers and new players, which give
the team a new look. He refers
to them as "aggressive and hard
working."
Shaniece Paige anchors the
team. She is a good ball handler,
shoots from anywhere on the
court and is strong defensively.
As point guard she is the team's
floor general.
Candace Clack plays center/
forward and can block shots and
rebound. She is also a good ball
handler and has been working on
being aggressive under the bas-
ket.
Joshlynn Brown is a hard-
working post player with good
rebounding skills. Hailey Bussell
is a junior with good technique,
and according to Chisholm, a
great work ethic.
Cierra Martino his a good out-
side shooter and is a four-year
player. Sophomore Shea Jonas
is a find on the inside and a good
rebounder offensively and defen-
sively.
Chisholm is looking for big
things out of Dalicia Washing-
ton. The freshman is an all-
around player who can shoot or
pass and is likely to be a starter
in her first year in Wildcat colors.
Rounding out the squad is
Tristan Lauramore, Andrea
Clark, Ashton Ray, Savannah
Cox, Brandi Lee, Rachel Oyin-
loye and Abby Rice.
The Cats face a big test in their
home opener on Friday when
they take on a well-coached
Stanton Prep squad. It will be a
measuring stick to see how the
Lady Wildcats are progressing.
