MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF With baseball season just around the corner the countys Little League facilities in Macclenny soon may get a muchneeded facelift, including new fencing, bleacher repairs and better rest rooms. The rundown condition at the complex stirred consider able discussion at the Baker County Commission meeting on riorated bleachers and embarrassingly subpar bathrooms call for immediate attention. Commissioner Adam Giddens said he and County Manto the board meeting to get a close-up look at some of the de condition of the bleachers. The bleachers were far worse, Mr. Giddens said. Some of the boards were rotting and there were no backrests. Some bodys going to bust their butt. S ee page 4 The sheriffs department is looking into a claim by a minor female that she was stalked by a male subject while walking home on Ridge Estates Dr. the afternoon of January 22, and that the suspect threw an oil filter that struck her in the head. The girl, 10, said she first spotted the suspect, who she described as either black or slowly in a silver van while she walked toward home after getting off a school bus. When she got to her yard, she said the suspect got out of the vehicle and walked toward her. She then ran to her house and shortly after looked outside and the van was gone. The location is off Reid Stafford Rd. south of Interstate 10 between Smoky Rd. and CR 229. Later the girl told Deputy Michael Clark she rode her bike to a friends on Stafford because she was scared, then headed back because the friend was not there. Again, the van approached her as she rode north, and moved over to get close to her. She then steered the bike into a ditch and ran after tossing a stick in the direction of the van. The man tossed the filter at her as she ran to another residence on Ridge Estates and called police. The deputy and other officers returned to the scene and recovered the used oil filter, along with the bicycle and backpack the girl left there. Deputy Clark noted the girl had bruising on her head, and she was treated at the scene by a rescue team. She further described the suspect as medium build with light facial hair wearing a green hat with a clenched fist icon. shirt and blue jeans tucked into tall black boots. An alert turned up no vehicles or suspects matching that description. In other reports, a criminal complaint for battery was filed January 27 naming Allen Yonn, 33, for allegedly dragging Stahis parked pickup and throwing her to the ground.

The reduction is minor only a half-hour less per day but a survey distributed to residents of the 32087 zip code caused many to fear the worst. During a meeting called to gather public reactions to the proposed change the afternoon of January 28, the discussion soon shifted to the postal ser whether at some point in the future the Sanderson location would be sacrificed to save money. You just went up on the stamps. Wheres that money going? asked one customer. Why does the USPS sponsor athletes in the Olympics, asked James Croft of Olustee, a county commissioner. Both he and Commissioner Jimmy Anderson attended the meeting. Its a fair question, responded Keith Pierle, a USPS operations manager for Area 2 covering Jacksonville west to Live Oak, and central Florida north into Georgia. But were not different than any other business. To grow our business and our revenue, we do advertising, he said. Addressing more than a dozen residents at the post of 229, Mr. Pierle detailed the results of the community survey mailed recently to 1517 customers in Sanderson regarding potential cost-cutting measures. Only 220 of the surveys were completed and returned. They showed nearly three quarters of the respondents 159 or 72 percent preferred rather than other options on the survey, including conver ness like a convenience store. Another option listed one that likely stoked residents concerns about losing their That happened at the end of 2011 when the small Olustee was eliminated and consolidated with the Sanderson branch.

The occupant of the house on Morris St. directly behind the Macclenny fire station, Tony Barber, 49, is in jail charged with producing and possessing marijuana, both second degree felonies. The charge is more se rious because of the proximity to the First United Methodist Church a block west. The acquaintance he brought to the hosdied two days later at St. Vincents Medical Center of severe intoxication and poly-drug abuse, according to an attending physician. Mr. Barber told sheriffs investigators that Mr. Crews, who he had earlier picked up in Folkston, GA and brought back to Macclenny, collapsed outside the residence and was unresponsive when taken by car to in respiratory failure when admitted to the emergency room and was later transported by helicopter to the Jacksonville hospital. When deputies later brought Mr. Barber back to the address to learn more details about Mr. Crews collapse, Investigator Matt Yarborough said he acted extremely allowed the officers in, and the investigator clearly heard what he believed to be large fans operating on the second floor. The odor of marijuana was extremely strong as he and others mounted the stairs and the temperature rose.

During the same perishootings in the country with a toll of 543 (we have to assume So theres a perspective on the scope of the real problem facing us as a nation. We look at ourselves in a collective mirror and have to admit that we have a problem, a massive one. I simply dont see anything proposed in the wake of New town that will address it. Take Jacksonville, real close to home. Killings on the northside and, now more frequently, on the westside. Some knives, but mostly guns are the homicide method of choice. The law abiding people in these neighborhoods march in front of TV cameras and talk about curbing the violence. What nobody, and I mean nobody, wants to talk about is that the majority of these killings are the direct result of the breakup of the family unit. Parents are largely absent from the lives of their children; kids roam the streets unsupervised from a young age; their only role models are the graduate-level thugs. So I ask myself. What will more gun laws do to curb this scourge? And how ironic is it that the loudest mouths in this government that did more than any of us to create this culture of death. So is the NRA too powerful? Do we need better background checks for legal gun ownership? Better screening of the mentally unbalanced? Perhaps. But forgive me for thinking its all a band-aid over a chain saw wound. All sound and fury with little substance. Look at the publics reaction since Newtown buying guns and ammo at a record pace. I feel Im not alone. Some thoughts on the cur rent debate over stricter gun control. First, dont ever underesti mate the proclivity of government to overreact to crises, particularly those on the national stage like the Newtown, CT school massacre in December. National tragedies are often a signal for uninspired and stale elected representatives and bureaucrats to act as if the public demanded it. A cynic might even suggest that bodies like the US Congress are apt to fall into this trap to give the impression they are doing some thing. Something, as opposed to nothing about the real crises that face this republic in 2013. You know, things like the national debt, spending money we dont have on programs that, well, prove over the years to be little more than doing something. As pointed out last week in ris in The Week magazine, 55 million children went to school the day 20 of them were killed at Newtown. Not to diminish the value of those dear souls and the adults who perished, but the hor rendous circumstances of the shootings and resulting media attention slotted the actual danger to the rest of Americas school children on a perch far above what it merits. For my money, lets spend the estimated $10 billion annually to put trained, armed per sonnel in the schools instead of what would surely be the outlay to enforce a whole new set of gun control laws that wont be enforced. Just like many of the laws on the books now are not enforced. Call this column random jottings of a troubled mind things Ive always wondered about or that just struck me as odd. Theres no real rhyme or reason to them, they just are what they are. der what babies are thinking? I do. I cant figure it out. Babies think they must. But how? They have no language. I think in English, but if I had no language at all what would I think in? Pictures? Some sort of default language that children know in the womb and then lose as they get older? They respond to stimuli if they are hungry or wet or sick they cry to get their mommas attention. But there must be more to it than that. Im not saying they are ready to use the E-Trade app on their dads cell phone to buy and sell stocks, but something is going on. Ive even asked little kids, Do you remember when you were a baby? None of them ever did. Thats kind of sad in a way. Id like to know what they were thinking about as they were getting ready to be born. roller coaster time. Move toward the light. Move toward I want to go back. Who are go back!! WAAAAAAAAAA!! My earliest memory was from 3 or 4 years old. I was walking around in the bathroom of our apartment in Tonawanda, New York and hit my head on the sink. Ouch. I looked at the sink and smiled because it occurred to me that a week earlier I could walk under it without hitting my head. So I must be growing. For some reason that stuck with me. used to bother me as a kid. I always wondered what would happen to me if I pulled the tag off the mattress. I hated taking a nap, as opposed to now when I wish I could take a nap. I rarely ever slept. I just rolled around for an hour and invariably Id hang off the bed and there would be that tag warning me Id better not remove it under penalty of law. I was always sorely tempted to tear off that tag. When you are 8 years old there are lots of temptations sneaking a hot cookie fresh out of the oven, eating a piece of the Thanks giving turkey before it reaches the dining room table, stick ing your finger in your sisters birthday cake, pulling the dogs tail. But nothing is more tempting than that tag. I never did it, of course. Too risky. It was the first step in a life of crime. In my 8-year-old head I pictured screaming sirens, helicopters landing in the front lawn and being dragged away to the kid version of Guanta namo. Some grizzled 10 year old would stare at me from his beady black eyes. What ya in for, kid? Tearing the tag off the mattress. here. What are you in for? Id sheepishly ask. Not eatin my broccoli. There are starving kids in China who kill for my broccoli. Yeah, Ive heard about that. Chinese kids must really like broccoli. the same line of thought. Im standing in the break room at work talking with friends about the AFC championship game. Were talking about the upcoming Super Bowl matchup between John more Ravens, and his brother the San Francisco 49ers. Its the first time brothers have been matched up as coaches. The guy next to me says, Did you hear what the commentator Joe Buck was saywere watching the game alone in their house. That way nobody else could see their pain if their sons lost. Seconds later the door is kicked in and black clad policemen with badges and NFL logos on their sleeves grab him and throw him up against a table. did I do. You know the rules, a grizzled sergeant with black eyes says as he slaps the cuffs on and reads: The use of pictures and descriptions of this game is prohibited without the express permission of the National Football League. Take him away boys. And let that be a lesson for the rest of you. The adult version of the tag on the mattress. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD Facebook fansWhat you had to say ... IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley LETTER T O THE EDIT OR With immigration reforms looking more and more likely to become a reality, we asked our Facebook peeps for their thoughts on the issue. Heres a look at what our friends online had to say: Robert Thompson: Maybe Ill go out and commit a crime and see if theyre willing to give me a pass too since they are in such a forgiving mood. Jason Randall: Youd be amazed at how dicult it is to get a green card with even a misdemeanor on your record. Its also wildly expensive. If you dont have $10,000 or so, youre not becoming legal. Theresa Rhoden: No other country would consider amnesty ... We are 16 trillion + in debt and counting. More people, more entitlements Both sides are pandering for votes. Clayton Yarbrough: This will allow all of those they give the free ride to access to an already broken system. T Danny Norton: Just think about the money that we could save, if we would just secure our borders. In the long run it would save us money in entitlements and dont forget healthcare and our prison system. Hannah Going Woodru: I honestly dont think many of them will want to be citizens. As far as I know, the people who are here are very thankful to be here, but they still love their homes even if theyre not very safe or easy to live in. I dont be lieve they mean any disrespect, but imagine if your home was no longer a safe place to live for your family and you had to move to a dierent country. Would you still want to be con sidered an American? Of course. Its the same with them. Also, I do not know many who even take advan tage of food stamps or healthcare. From what Ive seen they dont look for handouts. I worked at a grocery store for a year and a half and I very rarely ever saw a Hispanic person pay with food stamps. I dont think its as big of a problem as its made out to be. Theyre not here to use us, any one can be violent or have a record, no matter the race, and they are people looking for a better life. Who wouldnt want that? Richard Clark: They want to give citizenship to people who have already broken the laws of our land. Shows the respect they have for our country.

ursday, January 31, 2013 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, January 31, 2013A county deputy says foot and tire marks found at the scene of two west county burglaries may be similar, and thus the same person may be responsible. Both occurred between the evening morning. Deputy Chad Montean said he first noted the similar boot tracks when investigating break-ins at two utility sheds on the property Rd. west of Sanderson. The owner said she awakened about 2 am and saw a vehicle on the road in front of the residence. Later she discovered that one of the sheds had been forcibly entered. The other was unlocked. The inventory of stolen property included a pressure washer, power saw, drill and fishing tackle with a combined value of $700. Later, Deputy Montean found similar evidence off Cow Pen Rd. on the property of Keith Johnson, where a fuel tank was removed from a boat and fishing a possible suspect whose pickup truck was spotted in the area and had a matching tire tread pattern. In other property crimes, a building at the Macclenny mainforcibly entered over the MLK holiday weekend and two backpack blowers and a pole power saw taken. The equipment was valued at $1370.

A 14-year-old female student at Baker County Middle School was arrested on January 24 in possession of a pill that turned out to be a strong antibiotic and a controlled substance. A teacher alerted campus deputy Allen Markley after she found a note passed by the girl offering to sell the pill, and later saw the pill drop out of the girls jacket. The deputy said the student had in her possession another pill not considered illegal without a prescription. The charge of possession with intent to sell is a felony, and the student was released to her grandmother. She told Deputy Markley she believed the pills were pain medication and signed a statement that she planned to sell them. In another incident at the same school the day before, two female students were named in complaints for fighting, and one of them for battery on a teacher. Teacher Jennifer Richardson, 31, of Macclenny told Deputy Markley one of the students, 14, struck the other, 13, on the head with a book about 8:45 am, and when she pulled the older girl into the hallway to separate them she was shoved away. The younger girl then entered the hallway and they resumed fighting until several teachers separated them.

Mr. Barber admitted to police that he brought Mr. Crews to the hospital instead of calling for a rescue unit because I didnt want anyone to come here. Oddly, the house is adjacent to one on North College that was raided in October, 1999 when police learned it contained a large indoor marijuana growing oper ation. The couple living there at the time had re-located to Macclenny from Neptune Beach and police seized 197 plants of varying sizes. The house at that time was rented from a St. George, GA woman. The house raided last week is owned by Virginia Barber of Macclenny. It is not known if she is related to the occupant. Mr. Barber said he brought Mr. Crews back to Macclenny to spend the night and work on his vehicle, and he produced a nearly empty vodka bottle from the near doorway where he found him. Deputy Clark noted that Ms. when he initially interviewed her after the 4 am incident on E. Florida Ave. in Macclenny. She said Mr. Yonn became angry when she resisted his advances and told her she could walk home. She called police from a neighboring residence. Witness William Cooler, an employee of Macs Liquors downtown where the couple had been earlier, told the deputy Ms. against Mr. Yonn before, and that he warned him not to leave with her. clenny was named in a complaint from Glen St. Mary, who she allegedly accosted while the victim and another female walked on Quail Lane the evening of JanuThe girl said she was struck in the face. no contact order was filed January 22 naming James Denmark, wife Teresa, 54, of Macclenny, told Deputy Robert Simpkins the accused sent two greeting card messages to her juvenile-age son. Commissioner Jimmy Ander son said hes embarrassed by the condition of the countys recre ational facilities, especially at the thought of visitors coming from other counties to watch their kids play sports here. I dont even want to go to the bathroom at our parks, Mr. Anderson said. Id rather hold it till I get home. The discussion began when the county manager presented price quotes from three companies for fence repairs at the senior league field. The commission authorized Mr. Thompson last month to seek the quotes, which ranged from $12,229.99 to after he said the fencing was so bad it had become unsafe. The county manager recommended the board approve the low bid of $12,299.99 from Kens Fencing of Macclenny, adding a sense of urgency to the project. We need to do it now. Soon, ball season will be starting up, Mr. Thompson said. After comments were made about the decrepit condition of bleachers, Commissioner Anderson said repair work was needed on fences and bleachers. I think both of them are prior ity items, he said. Both need to be done. Mr. Giddens then asked members of the Baker County Little League in the audience if they would rather have fences re paired or bleachers repaired or replaced. I would rather see the bleachers myself, replied Jerry Carter, Little League president. Mr. Giddens said he prefers wood bleachers be replaced with aluminum to avoid the recur ring problems caused by rotting and warping boards.

The new schedule, which will begin in March, was recommended by Commission with holidays that typically fall on a Monday. The current meeting sched ule often conflicts with county holidays and other governmen tal meetings in our county, Mr. Croft said. This current meeting is a good example as it was moved (from January 21 to JanuKing holiday. The rescheduling of meetings during the year can easily result in confusion and result in lower attendance by the public. Mr. Crofts recommendation also called for meeting agendas to be made available by the end of business on Thursday of the week prior to the upcoming board meeting. This would allow adequate business days for commissioners to research agenda items, Mr. Croft said. The ultimate goal is to offer consistency in our meeting schedule and to encourage greater participation by citizens. by the Baker County Code En forcement Board for a 50 percent against property owned by James F.

Mr. Barton was not present at the county commission meeting but he told the code board on January 14 that the mobile home was placed on the property by a nephew and that the trailer had since been removed. In response to a question posed by Commissioner Gordon changes or variances would have been required for a move-on permit, which would have cost the owner about $150 instead of the to pay. Commissioner Jimmy Ander son asked if Mr. Barton had given his nephew permission to place the mobile home on his property, nitely knew that it was there.

ursday, January 31, 2013 T B C P Page 7 Page 6 T B C P ursday, January 31, 2013 MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF Most Baker County commissioners are predicting, or at least hoping, that 2013 will be a good year for county government and its 28,000 residents. Their visions for the new year sound government, a balanced budget, low taxes, a renewed emphasis on economic development, encouraging greater public participation in government and civic affairs, and cleaner parks and roadsides. were asked by The Baker County Press in early January to elaborate on goals. Commissioners Adam Giddens and James Croft responded via e-mail within a week or so, while Commissioner Jimmy Anderson waited until the January 22 board meeting to reveal his. Cited by each commissioner was achieving a balanced budget for 2013-14, hopefully without having to dip into the countys re serve fund again to make up for revenue. point plan, called for public work department heads and staff, as well as input from citizens and employees. Together we can balance the budget, Mr. Anderson said, adding, however, that it must be done intelligently because, Weve got a county to run and services to provide. Any budget can be balanced as to match outgoing expenditures. In the past few years, however, the county has transferred millions of dollars from the reserve fund to make sure it had enough revenue to pay the bills. At least one commissioner isnt convinced the reserve fund cant be used again. I think the reserve fund is sufficient enough to continue another year or two to help us balance the budget, Mr. Giddens said. But I do not think we should rely on it 100 per cent because when it runs out, well all be stuck with tax increases at one time. The wise thing to do, he said, is to start planning now ways to prevent too much dependence on the reserve fund, which is supposed to be used for real emergencies, not meeting everyday obligations. We need to start phasing down relying on it fully so it doesnt hit us all at once in the coming years, he said. I think the board will have no option but to work together on a combina tion of three things in order to on. Those three things, Mr. Giddens said, will be the reserve fund, spending cuts and adopting a property tax rate that would produce the same amount of tax revenue as the previous year the so-called rollback rate. First, we will cut as much as we can while providing essential services, he said. People will pay the same in taxes as they did the previous year, and then we will reach in to the savings for the rest as a last resort. Commissioner Giddens, the ville-based Giddens Security Co., said budgetary control would be further enhanced by shifting some of the responsibilities from the clerk of court to the county manager. Personally, I think that if we could move more of the accounting functions into the same building as (County Manager C.J. house, C.J. would be able to have a more hands-on approach to the budget throughout the year, said Mr. Giddens. money coming in and out, so to speak. And with him more in volved, it would help him keep the commissioners more precise The restructuring of personnel to accomplish the change could be accomplished relatively easy, Mr. Giddens said. This is a move that would not cost any jobs, and I do not think there are any performance issues personnel. I just think this is a minor restructure that could help Mr. Croft, who was elected in November but served on the county commission a quarter century ago, said one of his goals this year will be to encourage more citizen input at board meetings, including budget workshops. I would like to have the meetings more accessible to the citizens, said Mr. Croft, who led a move at the January 22 meeting to change the commission meetings schedule to offer more consistency and reduce the number of schedule changes due to holi days. Instead of the first Tuesday and third Monday of each month, commission meetings starting and third Tuesday. Mr. Croft said he also hopes to eventually have commission meetings videotaped for online viewing, similar to what other government bodies have been doing for years in surrounding counties on cable TV. I also believe in holding workshops to work out details on legislation or major projects, Mr. Croft said. This would provide citizens with an opportunity for more involvement. The exchange of ideas by the commissioners should help with creativity in dealing with major issues. As for the county budget, Mr. Croft offered several ideas for consideration. I strongly believe with the amount of funds being utilized from our reserves we need to approach the budget process from a different direction this year, he said. A line-by-line examination of expenditures should be undertaken by the commission in budget workshops. This would offer interaction between commissioners and de partment heads, the county manager, agency directors and conwhat is actually in the budget and to work on solutions to help re duce expenditures or, if needed, discuss possible increases. The final budget, he said, should be a policy statement by the commission as to the level of services and future needs. We must think outside of the norm, and be as creative as possible to continue providing services with less revenue, Mr. Croft said. Our reserves are dangerously low and so, too, are the ability of our citizens to pay more in increased taxes. Drastic times require a drastic departure from the way weve always done it, and I believe a line-by-line examination before the public will go a long way in proving we sincerely want the best for our county. point plan for 2013 included: es the county would like to attract and then work aggressively with the Chamber of Commerce to promote economic develop ment.

The bike valued at $800 was among property taken between the home of Stacy Smith while he was away on vacation. Mr. Cline at one time lived at the address and police think he entered using an old front door key. Investigator David Morgan said he learned the bicycle was taken at Cash America on Nor mandy Blvd. in Jacksonville and he went to the couples residence the morning of January 14. No one answered the door, but the investigator located a covered safe near the back door that matched the description of one taken from the Smith bedroom. The safe contained important papers, a business checkbook and $1000 in cash. The investigator obtained a search warrant and along with several other officers entered the residence where they also found costume jewelry, designer hats and perfume that had been reported stolen. phone and arranged to meet her and Mr. Cline at county jail on January 15. Initially, the girlfriend said Mr. Cline was not involved, a claim that police did not believe due of the weight of the safe and her claim that she opened it with a saw and pry bar, then hauled it back from the woods. A criminal complaint for shoplifting was filed against a Glen St. Mary man who allegedly fled on foot to his nearby residence after he was caught attempting to steal over-the-counter allergy medicine from Dollar General on US 90.

The store manager told Deputy Matt Riegel the suspect has shoplifted there before, but was never caught on camera. The manager and a witness said Mr. Nettles threw the package down when confronted, and took off running west to his residence on George Taber Blvd. The deputy attempted to make contact with him there to no avail. The officer also learned that Mr. Nettles is on probation for an unspecified offense.

ursday, January 31, 2013 T B C P Page 9 Page8J A NU AR Y 31, 2013 JOEL ADDINGT ON N EWS EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.com Justice of Baldwin returned from Washington, D.C. last week after playing with the Boston Crusaders drum and bugle corps during the presidential inauguration parade. The 17-year-old euphonium player called his trip to the Capitol a very big honor equally matched with great pressure. Mr. Justice has been involved with music since the sixth grade and played a tune by George Ryan in the January 21 parade. I have always loved playing and listening to music, he said. My mom tells stories of me as a baby when music was the only thing that would get me to go to sleep. Early in his high school ca reer, Mr. Justice set his sights on marching with a drum and bugle corps. The only problem, he said, was his instrument at the time, the alto saxophone, wasnt part of the corps. That pushed him to learn the euphonium, which he calls the tubas baby brother. Mr. Justice said he picked it up quickly, rising from a beginner to a member of the Boston Crusaders, a world class drum and bugle corps, in less than a year. The corps formed in 1940 making it the third oldest drum and bugle corps in the nation. The group announced its se lection to perform in the parade and Mr. Justices application to do so was accepted by the Boston Crusaders. There was a lot of down time while staging on the day of the event, but after the Secret Service gave the order to move out, the excitement of the crowd and the gravitas of the historic occasion took over. The hair on my neck stood up, the adrenaline kicked in and before I knew it the parade was over, Mr. Justice recalled. To be performing for the ruler of the free world is a once-ina-lifetime opportunity and I enjoyed every minute of it. The rush of seeing the President was unre al. And I will remember it for the rest of my life. The youth intends to pursue a music degree in college at either Florida State, South Florida, Central Florida or the Navys music program.

Coach Fred Matricardis team is working hard on the fundamentals as it readies for the opening of the baseball season the first week in February. Matricardi is excited about the team as he returns some of his average and Ethan Wilkerson hit .302 with 25 RBIs. So the offensive guns remain in place. with David Lipscomb, said Matricardi, and Ethan will likely commit to FSCJ in the next few weeks. Bell, and Brandon Miller, with Kyler McCray, Tyler Wendel and Joey Taylor. Bell and Miller are the most experienced outfielders. The infield will continue to be a strong point with Jared Crews, Gregory, Mikal Flores, Dylan Rowe all competing for starting spots. Sophomore Jacob Milton returns from a 5-0 season on the mound last year and adds some depth to a young squad. Our pitching staff will be the key to how good we can be, said Matricardi. Along with Milton, Jordan Kennedy, Justin Guillory, Jordan Jones, Brandon Miller I feel like we have eight good arms and how they compete will determine who starts and re lieves. I feel like we will be a much better team at the plate. We will be aggressive on the bases and play small ball but also able to slug it out. We will play good defense and I feel we will pitch well. The Cats open pre-season at the baseball field on Tuesday, February 5 versus Bishop Snyder and again on February 7 versus Eagles View. Both games are at 7 pm.Crack of the bat returns to BCHS 2nd Amendment rally on January 19Supporters of Second Amendment rights held signs on US 90 for two hours the afternoon of January 19 to call attention to what they believe are infringements proposed at the national level on gun ownership.

Some of them had taken the concealed weapons class at nearby Extreme O utdoors that morning, as have dozens of others in recent weeks as gun sales across the country ballooned in the wake of the governments reaction to the Newtown, Conn. school massacre on December 14.

The Cats defeated Forrest on January 22 and Terry Parker gym. The wins moved the Cats trict race. rest hard fought would be an understatement. This was a chippy game that saw the visitors hit with technical fouls and a delay of game warning. It was a battle under the basket with an excess of physical play. At one point the benches cleared when a scuffle broke out involving CeCe Jefferson and other players. The Wildcats and Rebels went basket for basket in the early going. Forrest nailed shots from the outside, including a trio of three pointers. Jesse Gardner and Johnny Lamb answered with long range shots of their own and at the end of the first period the The Rebels continued to shoot the ball well in the first half and slowly pulled ahead of their hosts. They broke the tie and went into the intermission up by three points.

None of them scored in the period and gave them a five-point edge going into the final quarter of the game. Thats when things got raucous. The tempo of the game picked up as Forrest began pushing and shoving the Wildcat players, in particular CeCe Jefferson. The referee called a technical for the way Jefferson was being manhandled and Jesse Gardner calmly sank the free throws. Gardners prowess from the line was to prove the difference in points from the free throw stripe in the fourth period and nailed all but one of his attempts as the Cats pulled ahead to stay. Charles Ruise Jr. had 22 points to lead all scorers. Lamb had 17, Gardner had 15, Brandon Lewis 7, Jefferson and Adrian back win on Saturday versus Ter tight from the opening whistle.

They picked up the pace and showed some defensive muscle, were unable to recover from despite a strong fourth period. Gardner again shot well from outside the three point stripe with three long range shots to lead the Cats with 17 points. Ruise and Lamb threw in 15 points and Mack had 10 points. Lewis added 8 and Jefferson 4 points. The Cats are home for Trinity on January 31 and Interlachen on Feburary 1. PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON CeCe Jeerson gets a rebound and a basket.
