Mr. Covingtons casket rested on the 50-yard line, borne there by a horse-drawn hearse (above photo). To the left of the casket sat Wildcats from the late 1950s and 1960s when Coach Cov ington called the shots from the sidelines and ushered Baker County into the record books as one of Floridas top small school dynasties. Other past players, friends and the current BCHS team sat in the home stands. For a tribute to Mr. Covington, see Bob Gerards column on page 3 and the obituary on page 10. A Glen St. Mary man lost his life when his pickup truck veered off Interstate 295 in north Jacksonville early on April 20 and struck a tree. Kelly Wayne Shepard, 52, was returning home about 5 am after leaving his shift at the Cedar Bay Power Plant on the northside. The Florida Highway Patrol said Mr. Shepard was southbound approaching Duval Rd. near Jacksonville International when he lost control of his 2006 Toyota, left the roadway to the outside shoulder and struck a tree on the drivers side door area. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Trooper D.R. Bazinet said he was wearing a seat belt and he was alone in the vehicle at the time. The next morning about midnight, a Glen St. Mary man was critically injured when he lost control of his vehicle on Noah Raulerson Rd. and it overturned, ejecting him. Trooper M.D. Childress of FHP said a 2005 Chevrolet SUV driven by Steven Thomas Jr., 26, was eastbound just east of CR 125 when it veered onto when the driver attempted to re-enter the roadway. He was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown onto the road shoulder. Mr. Thomas was taken to Shands Jacksonville. Passenger Adam C. Hunter, 24, also of Glen, refused transport to the hospital. His injuries were described as minor, and he also was not wearing a seat belt. Trooper Childress said charges pend further investigation, including whether alcohol was a factor in the 12:05 am accident.MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF Nothing is off the table this year as the Baker County Commission explores new ideas for balancing future budgets with out touching any more of the countys precious cash reserves, even if it means privatizing many services now provided by county employees and enacting new user fees. At a pre-budget workshop on April 16 to discuss creative suggestions, Commissioner James Croft urged his colleagues to stretch their imaginations and be willing to at least explore the feasibility of any ideas that might help solve the countys We need to be trained to think outside the box, said Mr. Croft, who called for the brainstorming session to get a head start on this years budgeting process, which usually doesnt engage until summertime.

County Manager C.J.

Coach Tom Covington passed away and he will be missed. Coach was one of a kind and he influenced the lives of hundreds of young men, not just by teaching them to play football but by showing them how a man should act. during a game. Like any coach he was intense and passionate about what was happening in the trenches. To many of those players, Tom Covington was more than Coach. He was a fathem when they needed it, he would praise them when they deserved it. He would laugh with them and comfort them when they were injured. Through it all, he would in spire a whole generation of young men to be the best they could be. To strive to be like Coach. To be the professional, the family man, the person that Tom Covington represented. Three of his teams went to bowl games (there were no conference championships in the 1960s). In 1958 his team went 9-1 and Gerald Dopson and Gary Dop son were standout players. In 1961 he had what he called his best team with Larry Dupree and Mar cus Rhoden. Six of his players received scholarships and he played Fletcher, the best team in Jacksonville, to a standstill in a bowl game. The Senators scored at the end of the game to win, but Coach Covington was so proud of how his team had played in the loss. man. To see Tom Covington off imagined that in high school as a football player and track star, he was known back in Kentucky as Flash Covington. On That was indicative of the man Tom Covington was in life unstoppable. Winning was important, but more important was how you played the game. Football careers end, his did after a heart attack sidelined him after 11 years of coaching. But how you played the game was not about football but about life in Tom Cov ingtons mind. Football was a game but the real game was life itself and not many lived it as fully or with the impact of Tom Covington. You admired him as a coach, but you wanted to be like him as a man. It is appropriate that the road in front of Wildcat Stadium bears his name. It wasnt about win/loss records or district titles or any of the hoopla that goes with being a winning coach. It was simply that Tom Covington was Wildcat footand laid the groundwork for the successes that other coaches shared. We need more men like him. New look Jags ...The Jacksonville Jaguars will be sporting new black uniforms this season and a remodeled logo. We turned to Facebook to see what readers thought about the gear from Nike. Hot or not so much? we asked. Heres a look at the comments that followed: Bob Gerard: I rarely like Nikes uniforms but I like this one. Jennifer Carter Aldridge: They still suck with or without new uniforms. Walter Kelly Crews: The uniforms look ne, but it will take way more than new duds to bring this team to victory ... I have lost hope in the last few years! David Wisnewski: At least we will look sharp when were down 17 in the 4th! Love them! Lori Joy: Hot is right. The sun is gonna heat those sorry players right up! Beth Bussey-Mullaney: Really hoping our team is able to do better this year. Will continue to be season ticket holders and support them. New uniform is UGLY, especially the helmet! Jennifer Zorn Crews: Less gay than the dolphins new uniforms. Dana Reilly: They should have spent more on better players and less on new uniforms. Jennifer Carter Aldridge: Its funny when the Jacksonville Sharks are way better than the Jags. Maybe the Jags should take some lessons on football playing from the Sharks. Clinton T. Coker: I like it. Ashley Abad: They still suck. Missy Curry-Wiliams: Uniforms do not make the plays! They need a new team to go with the new coach! Jill R. Mero: Hot! I love them. Calli Preston Johnson: Hope they had to buy their own uniforms. I dont see how the uniform is going to help their game though, lol. Sharon Carey: The blue looks like the Panthers!? Evan Eaton: Im not a Jaguars fan but I like the uniform. Jayne McLeod: Now we have throwback uniforms! Keith Lane: You can yell and scream all you want, but they still suck and have for many years. Theresa Rhoden: Hot. Tammy Crawford McFarland The teal color is not on them? Amy Bryan Reynolds: Need to play better. Mildred Merkerson: I like the new uniform and Im ready for the new season! Cari Taylor: I agree with Calli! Rachel Kemp: Love it. Michael Pitt: Yuck ... along with the cartoonish logo. Jerome Reimer Jr.: Yeah I agree! Uniforms dont win games Clayton Yarbrough: Every other team knows they are an easy win so a new uniform will not help them. Jokes of the NFL!Coach Covington passing ... We posted former Wildcat football coach Tom Convingtons funeral notice to our Facebook page and a number of readers added their reactions to his passing. Here they are: Don Yonn: I was in the band so I went to all the football games and the coach always showed what a great leader he was. He will be missed. Our county lost a great man. Faye Combs: What a good Christian, teacher and coach Tom Covington was! He is in Heaven and singing with the angels now! My condolences go to all his family Rachel Kemp: Many prayers of strength for his family; such a great man. Curtis Tharpe: I am lucky to have known him as a coach, teacher and friend. I loved talking with him about Wildcat and Gator sports. Hes a great man who will be missed dearly by all of us who knew him. RIP coach. Clayton Yarbrough: Tom was a wonderful man. He had some awe some shing stories and an awesome antique shing gear collection. I will never forget him and may he RIP. James Croft: Our county has lost a man that led by example. Freddie Rhoden: My grandpa was one of the boys. Coach Covington taught him the love for the game, and he passed it on to me. I will always be thankful for that. Stormi Clouse: RIP coach ... Never got to know him personally, but heard the stories of him even though I was a student long after he no longer coached. Baker lost an amazing man. What you had to say ... MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD Most of us are aware of what the 24-hour news cycle does to coverage of national events like the terrorist (yes, thats what it was) attack at the Boston Marathon last week. Weve seen the media scramble before and unfortunately well see it again. Though one has to admit the bulk of reportage coming out of a tragedy like Boston is generally accurate, or as accurate as can be expected considering everyones passion to be first, and not necessarily right. I have my doubts all things covered are necessary but thats another topic. But there are blunders ing for the offending news or ganizations. What is nearly as offensive is the blather. The dictionary defines blather as talking long-windedly without making very much sense Youve heard the word used before. Actually, Ive heard it used once or twice from family members describing what comes out of my mouth while reading the morn ing newspaper (you remember the morning paper, dont you?). So when it comes to momentous national events tragedies or otherwise the 24-hour cycle people have to fill the air with something. And that something is synonymous with blather Think of it as a coded message hidden in a lengthy written passage; every 100th word is key. The re maining words are irrelevant to the real message. So, does anyone else find themselves saying wake me when its over when a big event like Boston unwinds over the airwaves or Internet during a period of several days? We stayed riveted for days to the television after 9/11, so massive was its impact and so new to the national experience. With any luck (or divine providence) well never witness anything as traumatic as that again, though you can be excused for skepticism on that point. scaled events like Newtown or the Colorado theater shootings unleash the torrent of news coverage, but once one collects the basic facts of the situation isnt it a better use of time to leave the cable news and Internet sites behind and go about ones business? Saying a prayer or two for the victims wouldnt hurt either, would it? Fear the day we ever get accustomed to mass shootings, bombings and all the other tricks the crazies and religious zealots (can you say Islamic ter rorist?) got up their sleeves. Last week, and after New town, when the initial facts were known and the blather began, yours truly felt a vague sense of guilt not keeping up with the developments minuteto-minute, as if that somehow diminished the significance of the tragedies. Then I tuned into TV again and listened only to more blather (dont even get me started on the political correctness in the Boston coverage yecch), and the sense of guilt faded. Its the world we live in.Feels guilt tuning out blather amid tragedyCoach showed his boys how to play and be menMona Thorpe Lewis: Mr. Covington was a great man and a wonderful friend. We miss him but the memories of him will last forever through the many people he inuenced.Background checks proposal fails in Senate ... The US Senate failed last week to pass a bipartisan proposal to expand background checks on rearm sales. We turned to Facebook to ask, Is that a victory or tragedy, in your estimation and why? Heres what our friends had to say: Richard Clark: Neither. But no one should have any reason to object to a complete background check. The ones who protest the checks are usually the ones with something to hide. Scott Shannon: It is a victory and Obama needs to stop spreading lies and using parents of dead children as props! Every gun purchased from a [licensed] dealer goes through an NICS background check. Walter Kelly Crews: There are already sound laws and practices in ef fect, what needs to happen is those same laws and protocols be followed to the letter. You kill an innocent person in a crime you die swiftly, not set on death row for decades costing hundreds of thousands of dollars during that time. David Church: The government not restricting our rights? Win. Alyssa Nicole Fernandez: My question is, why does our back ground have to be checked to get a job, but not when we go to buy a rearm? Michelle Vowles: Its a huge vic tory! Expanding background checks for those trying to purchase rearms is a ruse for the government expanding control over aspects of our lives that they have no business being a part of to begin with. Jason Randall: The wont stop criminals argument is so stupid. Posted speed limits dont stop speeders. Drug laws dont stop dealers. Murder laws dont stop murder. Banning gay marriage doesnt eradicate gay people. The list goes on. Nick Apromollo: A background check doesnt prevent anyone from obtaining a weapon. James Wood: This bill, like most knee jerk reactionary bills, would have done nothing to stop the action that was its inspiration.

We need to be thinking about better ways to do things with less, Commissioner Croft said, adding he was not suggesting any layoffs of current employees would be necessary. However, he said, through at trition the number of employees cancies as workers retire or otherwise leave county employment. He suggested the same policy could be followed by constituty appraiser, tax collector, court clerk and elections supervisor. We all face a common problem and were all taxpayers, Mr. Croft said. Im afraid were going to face a budget crisis. I think drastic times bring about drastic measures. Commissioners also discussed the possibility of a motor pool that all county departments share, excluding the sheriffs ofhicles. Officials estimated it might cost several hundred thousands of dollars up front to implement one, but the county manager said the operation could save the county tens of thousands of dollars a year. Commissioner Jimmy An derson said he liked the idea but wasnt sure it could be done withcounty coffers. We need revenue to increase. Then we could invest in some of the ideas like a county motor pool, Mr. Anderson said. Its a great idea and I think in the long run it would pay off. At the beginning of the work shop the county manager gave a brief overview including a reminder that county departments had sustained budget cuts totaling 19.5 percent during the past two years. Weve got to get a little more creative, Mr. Thompson told commissioners. We cant conCommission Chairman Mark Hartley seemed to agree, stating that county expenditures can only be cut so much before we have to start cutting services. Board members also acknowledged that county reserves, which are conservatively projected to reach $6.3 million by the end of tember 30, cannot continue to be used to help balance the budget. When Commissioner Adam Giddens asked how much reserve money might be needed to balance the budget this year if rev enues remain stable, Mr. Thompson said he wouldnt know until concrete estimates of property tax collections and state funding are available by early summer. We dont know yet, the county manager said. We wont know know how much money we have. We wont know until mid-June at the earliest. On a positive note, he said revenues so far this year have actually increased beyond earlier projections and he anticipates the same scenario to be repeated next year. Other ideas discussed includ ed levying a countywide assessment fee for emergency medical services, originally proposed in 2011; consolidating purchasing; creating a central fueling station for county vehicles that presently enacting user fees at St. Marys Shoals Park, which has separate trails for horseback riding and four-wheel-drive vehicles. Mr. Croft recommended the county even seek proposals from contractors who might be interested in taking over the manage ment of Shoals Park, which could include commercial stables for horses and a four-wheel-drive One thing on which most commissioners agreed was that anything the county could do to encourage and foster economic development, including relaxing bureaucratic red tape in the permitting process, is desirable. It takes a long time to get a (development) project started, said Commissioner Gordon Crews, adding that the county should strive to become more business friendly. Noting that the county commission already lifted its impact fee on new developments, he said it would be helpful if the school district and the City of Macclenny did the same. Some people have approached me and said they had property build-ready and cant do anything with it, Mr. Crews said, without going into details. Simplifying the permitting process to allow developments to a big driver for our economy. Commissioner Anderson, a fees on developments slows down the growth of Baker County, which in turn impacts the county budget. If theyre not building were not getting any (additional) property tax revenue, he said, noting that developers have to spend a bunch of money before they even turn any dirt. Hathcox said the school district on each new home built in Bak er County even though enrollment has been declining in the Commissioner Hartley, a history teacher at Baker County High School. New businesses to spark more jobs and new residential developments in the county would spur economic growth and boost We need to help stimulate growth, Mr. Anderson said. Weve got to get some jobs here so more people will stay here. Were going to have to be more aggressive to promote business development. On that note, local resident Danny Norton urged county ofcourage just any new development in the county, referring to two sand mining proposals currently awaiting state permits be fore seeking county approval. The projects, which will use enormous amounts of water, have generated a groundswell of citizen opposition. The states water supply is a matter of extreme importance, Mr. Norton said, urging commissioners to think long and hard about that with what weve got coming up. Near the conclusion of last weeks workshop, Commissioner Croft said some of the ideas discussed may not be workable and may not be popular. But they all should be fully explored to determine their economic feasibility, he said. We need to look past politics and the way things have been done in the past, he said. F rom page 1 The BCHS Class of 1990 is putting together a 5K run/walk on Saturday, May 4 in MacclenHern, injured in the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15. Young Aaron is the son of a BCHS classmate and the class valedictorian Katherine Carter Hern, who now lives with her family in California. Her son and other family members were near for Katherine to cross it when the bomb exploded (see related story). The event kicks off with a halfmile kids run at 8 am, followed by the 5K that starts on the north side of Macclenny Park on Ohio Ave. Registration fees of $15 for children under 12 and $25 for adults and includes a t-shirt.

BCCS received most of its funding from the Florida Department of Children and Families, but that revenue stream was set to end on April 30. Until last week, however, BCCS was expected to remain open through the end of the month to assist clients and help with the transition to the states new provider of substance abuse services in the county, River Region Human Services, Inc. of Jacksonville. Its unclear why the board of directors moved to shut down early. While unconfirmed allegations of wrongdoing by BCCS staff have surfaced and may have prompted the sudden termina tion of operations, board members would not verify the existence of such allegations. When asked why the decision was made, one board member said, Ive been sworn to secre cy. The boards chairman and local pastor Joe Ruise said ceasing operations two weeks ahead of schedule was necessary to ensure the board doesnt get caught with their pants down when May 1. Were trying to get ahead of he said, adding that the boards accountant Lyons & Lyons is recial records. I believe our books are going to be OK ... Im sure well come out in the black, so we should be good, said Mr. Ruise. River Region, meanwhile, has been interviewing former BCCS staffers for positions on its team here. Its vice president, Minerva Bryant, said she didnt know why BCCS closed early, but that the interviews were going well. She said following a meeting between River Regions CEO and county turned over the keys to adjacent to the courthouse. The doors are open today [Tuesday] with phones being answered and letting people know we are on the way, said Ms. Bryant. Were trying to expedite be [of May], but wanted to make sure people could get answers. She said the Child Guidance Center, which counsels youths at the location, will be available through the end of the month and clients with appointments will still be seen. Last month River Region won a contract with Lutheran Services of Florida to supply state-funded substance abuse and mental health services in Baker County for some $457,000 annually. Lutheran was hired by the state to manage such contracts in 23 northeast Florida counties for more than $92 million a year. BCCS, along with a partner agency from Lake City, sought the Baker County contract too, but its proposal ranked second of six submitted. Chris Thomas, the former executive director and chief financial officer of BCCS, said he too didnt know why board members closed the office without warning. He said he was told they needed to get some stuff done before May 1, but that he didnt know what those activities were or why they couldnt wait until the end of the month. Mr. Thomas said the corporations money was turned over to its accountant and attorneys were consulted about what to do next. When asked whats next for him, Mr. Thomas said, Just put out my resume and see what happens. garding to transition to the new provider is encouraged to call (904) 900-1075. Ms. Bryant said a meet and greet with River Region personnel is scheduled for midday on May 1 and the public is welcome.MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Macclenny will kick off the new Keep Baker Beautiful campaign this weekend as the programs to join the anti-litter venture. An estimated 15-20 congregants will gather in the church parking lot about 8 am on April 27 at the corner of South 5th and Lowder streets, across from the Macclenny Post Office. From there they will walk along both sides of Lowder Street picking up bottles, cans, Styrofoam cups, paper and other discarded debris all the way to US 90, possibly farther. Leading the pack will be County Commissioner Jimmy Anderson, who spearheaded the campaign two months ago and announced the kickoff event at the commission meeting on April 16. He said a few weeks earlier that hed been contacted by a church and other individuals interested in participating in the countywide campaign. However, he said he waited until he had tity of the church last week. Commissioner Anderson also threw down a challenge to his colleagues, saying he wanted to see some of the other commissioners out there, too. Keep Baker Beautiful, which is patterned after the national Keep America Beautiful campaign, was authorized by the county after Mr. Anderson proposed the idea in February as a way to encourage people to take pride in their community by helping keep the roadways clean. The county is providing trash bags and orange safety vests for participants to wear. Mr. Ander son said he hopes groups will adopt sections of roads through their neighborhoods to maintain at least once a month. the commissioner said he will supply water for thirsty litter patrollers and use his company trailer to haul all the trash to the dump. Last month County Manager C.J. Thompson, who described the volume of litter on Baker County roadways as disgusting and embarrassing, said participating groups might have to pay the county a deposit on the vests. But that was before one of his administrative assistants discovered the lightweight mesh vests were available for only $1.81 apiece from an online supplier. Mr. Thompson told commissioners last week that deposits wont be necessary since the vests were so cheap. But, he said, there was another good reason for not We dont want to discourage participation, he said. Some vests will be lost or damaged but we can afford it. Commissioner James Croft reiterated a previous concern that to undergo some sort of Florida Department of Transportation safety program in advance. The county manager said he did some research on and was of the opinion that such training would not Good, Commissioner Ander son said, adding: I dont want to burden people by saying youve This is a starter program to keep the roads clean and I want it to grow.

ursday, April 25, 2013 T B C P Page 7 Page 6 T B C P ursday, April 25, 2013The Glen St. Mary Town Council took a major step April 16 toward extending sewer and water lines south toward Interstate 10 when it approved a plan authorizing a local oil company to pay construction costs and be repaid as other customers connect in future years. The agreement is similar to others Macclenny made several years ago to extend utilities south across the interstate. The timing of the proposed agreement between the town and R.H. Davis Oil Company of Macclenny coincides with the companys plans to construct a travel center on the northwest corner of the CR 125-I-10 inter change where its Citgo station now stands. Rick Davis, who represented the company at the April meeting of the Glen council, estimates the new structure will use about 7200 gallons of water daily and 6000 gallons for its sewer lines. The utility lines buried along the west side of 125 will cost about $250,000 absent engineering and other expenses, Mr. Davis told the council, and the agreement spells out how the oil company will be reimbursed by new connections in coming years. Council members have long viewed extension of utilities south toward the interstate as key to commercial development. At present, the Citgo is the sole business on all four corners. The Davis company owns 23 acres on its corner, including where the present and future buildings will be located. Residential hook-ups along the route will cost up to $1000 each, but the bulk of reimburse ment back to the oil company is anticipated from future commercial developments like hotels and restaurants. A hotel connection could cost in the $50,000 range. The travel center, it is estimated, will use 5-6 percent of the total capacity running from Glen St. Marys water system and Macclennys sewer system that already services homes and businesses along US 90 and both Westside Elementary and Baker County High School. The total capacity is set at 204,000 water gallons daily and 181,000 sewer. Mr. Davis indicated the travel feet, with a restaurant phase adding another 3000 feet. Scott Lyons of AVA Engineers of Jacksonville estimated construction will begin this fall.

He is assigned to the maintenance team for the Spirit of Missouri, the long-duration, round-trip training mission to South Korea March 28 as part of the Foal Ea gle training exercise. It is an amazing feeling to be training mission to South Korea, McCray said. It felt good to see it on national television and to read about it in news articles. (Seeing) photos of the plane I helped launch was a once-in-alifetime experience. The news of McCrays B-2 even attracted the attention of family and friends back home in Baker County. Airman McCray, on this particular endeavor, did his job exactly like he does his job every day, said Staff Sgt. Andrew Jones, 13th AMU dedicated crew chief. When we come to work, McCray was simply handling business as usual. pervises McCrays shift. The B-2 is a big part of our Air Force, McCray said. Not having a stealth-capable aircraft could be disastrous. You never know when our country might need the B-2 for a global emer gency, so thats our motivation maintenance possible. McCray said he gets a lot of his motivation from the pride in his aircraft and the knowledge that pilots are safe when they take off on the runway. Not only are the pilots lives in our hands but, like a car enMcCray said. If we cant do our job properly, then the aircraft wont even lift off the ground. Part of making sure B-2s can lift off means performing preto ensure all components are in working order. Were constantly inspecting, McCray said. Even when an aircraft isnt going anywhere, it still gets inspected. Attention to detail is crucial because hours of hard work from various maintenance sections can go down the drain if one crew chief does not do his job correctly, said McCray. If issues arise during inspections, B-2 crew chiefs have more than 1,000 technical orders they can follow for step-by-step guidance on how to troubleshoot and perform each task. We have to do exactly what the TO tells us to do verbatim, McCray said. Theres no cornercutting at all. Stationed at Whiteman for more than two years, McCray has had his fair share of maintenance work on all shifts. Ive been on days, mids and swings and none of them are really bad, McCray said. Its just that they might need you on days one day because the manning a spot. Or they can put you on swings because you are more experienced compared to younger airmen, and they need some type of leadership. McCray said he had some trouble adjusting to working through night shifts because his body was not used to sleeping during the day and staying awake at night. I had to cover my windows with aluminum foil to block out the sunlight, McCray said. In addition to adjusting to different work shifts, the Baker County native also had to adjust to Missouris long, freezing-cold winters. Where Im from, the coldest it ever got was about 60 degrees, McCray said. I saw snow and icy year here. For McCray, maintenance is a lot more than just a job that pays the bills. It is a standard of living. Its part of your lifestyle. You cant just go home and not think about maintenance, McCray said. Even though youre relaxed when you get home, you still have to think about the next days events because you want to be on your A-game every time you come back to work. Whether launching a B-2 or doing routine maintenance, crew chiefs are one large part of the soaring. At the end of the day you need AGE, you need pilots and you need crew chiefs, McCray said.

PHOTOS BY JOEL ADDINGTON 3-way tie at annual Chamber golf eventThe Baker County Chamber of Commerces 6th annual golf tournament, which serves as the chambers major fundraiser, ended with a three-way tie at 9 under par. The tie was broken by comparing scores on holes preselected by the management at Bent Creek Golf Course on J acksonvilles west side. Some 19 teams met at the golf course the morning of April 19 for breakfast and a prayer before hitting the links. This was the 6th tournament that we have done since I ve been at the Chamber and it was the most stress free tournament yet, said chamber director Darryl Register. Usually, he said, hes helping prepare lunch during the tournament, but thanks to a donation from the Walmart D istribution Center that paid for catering from Fat J acks BBQ, he was able to play on the team that eventually won rst place in the event. Also on the winning team were Adam Giddens and Tim Starling. Second place went to C.J Thompson, Paul Hamilton, E dsel Smith and Josh Smith. The prizes included golng packages from Billy Casper Golf, which manages a number of courses in the area. Mr. Register estimated the event raised about $6000, roughly the same amount as in past years. Pictured at right is Bill Wheeler, a retired engineer; and above, golfers take to the course about 9 am. JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgAbout 240 fans showed up at the Baker cat basketball alumni scrimmage games and take a stroll down memory lane with coaches and former players. The games pitted men and women alums from the 2000s against their predecessors from teams in the 1990s. And despite an injury six minutes into the womens game, organizer Marcel Thomas considered the event a success and one he and other alumni hope to replicate with other sports, perhaps as soon as June with an alumni football game. It was pretty good, he said. Ive been getting a lot of positive feedback. We want to try to do [the basketball scrimmages] every year. Everybody seemed to have a good time. A number of ex-Wildcats who went on to play college basketball were recognized that evening before the games began at 6 pm. They posed for a group photo at center court. Mr. Thomas said the scrimmages were played, in part, to highlight the importance of education by showcasing Wildcat athletes who are now excelling in professional careers both here and outside the county. Former Wildcat shooting guard Alex Mack, for instance, graduated in 1992 after an unde feated regular season. He left the program with a scholarship to play for FCCJ, now Florida State College at Jacksonville, and later for St. Leo University near Tampa. In the 90s, the level of competition was so great, recalled Mr. Mack, an assistant vicepresident at JP Morgan Chase in Jacksonville. There was so much talent going through there, in basketball and football. The competitiveness was phenomenal. There was a ton of support from the community. The stands were jam-packed every single game. During his senior year, the Wildcats were ranked second in the state and went 18-0 be fore losing a title game to Hamilton County at home. It was our year, he said. Everybody pre dicted us to win. and the former shooting guard said he made behind the arc. That was the highlight. After that, I didnt make another one, he said, laughing. I was a little bit off for the rest of the game. The score in the mens game was close throughout. The younger players, including Mr. Thomas, a former point guard, built a in the second half, which really got the crowd pumped, he said. After the injury in the womens game, the 90s team was left with no subs and struggled to keep pace with their more junior opponents, who won the scrimmage by some 20 points. Mr. Thomas described the injury as a freak accident that occurred when the player performed a spin move. She was transported to Fraser Hospital for treatment. They [90s alumni players] were really conservative after that, he said. Retired basketball coach Harold Jefferson, who coached both boys and girls for 20 years was honored during the event along with current coach Charles Ruise, who shepherded We had a lot of people come out to support them, said Mr. Thomas. Another reason for last weekends scrimmages and for other alumni games in the future, is to foster more community involve ment in local sports programs. If we can get more parents active, we can get more kids inspired to do more things, Mr. Thomas said. For Mr. Mack, Saturdays event was like a reunion of sorts. I saw so many people I hadnt seen in a long time, he said. To get that camaraderie back again and catch up, and see whats going on in their lives was great. This shouldve been done years ago. It gave me a chance to play with people my age and it was great for the community to see do good things. Youre able to have the guys coming through the athletic programs come out and see and meet face to face these people theyve heard about through the community.
