A bystander who saw the accident, Edward Taylor, also of Lake City, said he removed the boy from the 2002 Ford Taurus involved in the crash. to UF Health of Jacksonville, formerly Shands, by TraumaOne with a teddy bear in his arms. The Fords driver, Richard O. Ratliff, 60, and Anne R. Ratliff, 58, were dead at the scene. Lake City Reporter editor Robert Bridges said Mrs. Ratliff worked for the newspaper as a contractor. He also noted the boys injuries were minor. Hes fine. Turns out he only had bruises and cuts. Just some stitches. Were all very relieved, said Mr. Bridges. Three UPS trucks were crossing U.S. 90 to enter the Citgo gas station on the north side of the highway after leaving the interstate eastbound when the accident occurred on July 5 about 1:30 pm. Witnesses at the scene said two of the trucks, being delivered to Jacksonville by drivers, made it through the intersection unscathed. The third, driven by Geor gia A. Gray, 55, of West Virgin ia, clipped the left rear of the Ratliffs westbound Ford, which careened into the tree line on the south side of the highway, witnesses said. The Florida Highway Patrol is invespress release what witnesses said previously. Damage to the Ford was estimated at $10,000 and $500 to the 2013 UPS truck, said Trooper J. Beagle. Bystander Mr. Taylor was at the gas station when the accident occurred and headed toward the vehicle to assess the Fords occupants. All I heard was a baby that kept crying, he said. He was hung up in the car seat. After removing the child and having a friend call 9-11, Mr. Tay lor said there wasnt much he could do for the other occupants. They were all crumbled up. There was no way I could get them out. They were not responsive, he said. The east bound lane of U.S. 90 was blocked as emergency personnel extricated the deceased from the vehicle. FHP indicated that charges are pending in the accident. Dangerous interchange The interchange just west of Sanderson is perhaps the most dangerous in the county due to the confusing maze of entrance and exit ramps, the location of the gas station and blind spots created by the overpass. Since 2010, there have been 62 accidents at the interchange, including last weeks fatality and one in 2010. Thirty-two of those crashes resulted in injuries. Thirty-one of them happened on U.S. 90 10 with property damage and 21 with in juries. The remaining accidents took place on the in terstate or at on and off ramps. In the five years between 2003 and 2007, there were a dozen crashes with 20 injuries at the interchange, The Press reported in 2009, following a fatal collision in April of that year. In 2008 there was at least one nearfatal crash in which a motorcyclist laid down his bike to avoid a direct collision with another vehicle pulling out of the ILLUSTRAT I ON BY JESS I CA PREVATT A map of the I-10 interchange at U.S. 90 noting the 21 accidents on 90 which resulted in injury or death since 2010.

MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF The Baker County Development Corporation continues to be a focus of concern among county commissioners, who most recently have questioned the BCDC boards makeup and the origin and purpose of a $800,000 annual management fee that has never been fully paid to help fund the county jail. The related issues arose during a county commission meeting on the evening of July 2 when Macclenny resident Sharon Padgett asked why no commissioner was presently serv board of directors and why an $800,000 fee that was part of the original agreement with the county in 2006 has been cut to $250,000. It eludes me how this happened, Mrs. Padgett, who attends most of the bimonthly commission meetings and virtually every one of the quarter ly BCDC board meetings, told commissioners. Have we (the county) made an inter-local agreement reducing the management fee? she asked commissioners, without getting an immediate response. Mrs. Padgett also noted that while the county can barely afford the current $84 daily inmate cost, the BCDC has the authority to raise the rate 2 percent a year, adding that she wonders about the corporabind out there that were not aware of that we should be aware of, she said. After some discussion by commissioners, County Attorney Terence M. Brown, who also serves as the BCDCs legal counsel, was asked to research the issues of BCDC board ap pointments and management fees and report back later. Commissioner James Croft management fee works and whether any changes had been made, to which the attorney said he didnt know. I cant answer that question, Mr. Brown said. Im not involved in the budget process. Mr. Croft asked the attorney to at least research the matter S ee page 3Curious about lack of BCDCs mgmt. feesTwo more die at US 90-I-10 PHOTO BY JOEL ADD I NGTON Rescue and law enforcement personnel at the scene next to the victims totaled Ford Taurus.S ee page 3 All I heard was a baby that kept crying.

Then, turning his attention to the BCDC board membership issue, Mr. Croft noted that Commissioner Jimmy Anderson volunteered as a new county commissioner in 2010 but no appointment had ever been made. Mr. Croft further stated that the county attorney was supposed to have looked into whether a citizen could be appointed instead of a county commissioner but the issue was never resolved. He said its his understanding, from reading the BCDCs articles of in corporation, that the board can have up to seven members but that it has never had former County Commissioner Alex Robinson. He had to leave the commission when he was defeated in 2010. Since then, Commissioner Anderson said he has attended most BCDC meetings in an exhe would prefer to be a voting member of the board. I was told there was no vacancy for me to serve on the board, Mr. Anderson said, adding that after reading the BCDCs articles of in corporation it was his view that there should be a commissioner on the board. However, he said he never received a clear cut legal opinion on the matter and has simply continued to attend BCDC board meetings like any other interested citizen. Since the Baker County Sheriffs Complex opened in June 2009, after the BCDC not-fornance the venture with the county, the annual tions and law enforcement has steadily grown to nearly $4 million. cause the county is required to pay a daily rate of $84 per inmate, twice the old rate at the former jail behind the courthouse. Also, recent reductions in the number of federal inmates housed in the county jail have created even It is the increasing costs to the county to fund jail operations that have led Mrs. Padgett and other taxpayers to question the relationship between the county and the BCDC. We need a county commissioner on the board to represent the interest of taxpayers, Mrs. Padgett told commissioners last week. But it was her complaint about the original $800,000 management fee that BCDC had never actually paid that seemed to create the most interest. Commissioner Adam Giddens, an accountant and vice president of a Jacksonville-based private security agency, asked the county manager to check on the management fee and report back later. At that moment Brian tion, walked to the podium to offer an explanation. The management fee originally was in the salaries of jail employees, whose pay at the time was below industry standards, Mr. Bishop said. It was an ar bitrary number when it was set, he said of the origure. That amount has never been paid and it was never meant to go to the county (general operating budget). He said the BCDC has never been profitable enough to pay the entire $800,000 fee and that the amount has since been reduced to $250,000, which he said is ear marked strictly to support salaries. Were that $250,000 not there we would have to ask the county to fund that for salaries, Mr. Bishop said. Its unlikely commissioners would welcome any additional expense, however, as the county moves forward in the budget process with a mindset focused on cutting costs in order to arrive at a balanced budget for 2013-14. In a budget workshop the afternoon of July 2, commissioners expressed concern for the growth of county government budgets over the past 10 years, particularly the sheriffs of$4.1 million to $8 million in the past decade [see accompanying chart]. get in 2012-13 represents roughly half of all county government budgets including all I was told there was no vacancy for me to serve on the board ... ere should be a commissioner on the [BCDC] board County Commissioner Jimmy AndersonAddressing the lack of county commission representation on the Baker Correctional Development Corporations board of directors.F rom page 1 $$2,000,000 $4,000,000 $6,000,000 $8,000,000 $10,000,000 $12,000,000 $14,000,000 $16,000,000 $18,000,000 FY 03/04 FY 04/05 FY 05/06 FY 06/07 FY 07/08 FY 08/09 FY 09/10 FY 10/11 FY 11/12 FY 12/1310 Year County Budget Growth BOCC Curious on management fees...gas station. The following year, a Buick occupired by a couple from Louisiana passing through Baker County left the gas station and pulled into the path of a truck and trailer driven by a Glen St. Mary man. The collision killed the Buicks passenger and seriously injured the driver. The Florida Department of Transportation has launched a new study of the interchange, which was designed in the late 1950s using a clover leaf conThe design was common at the time but is no longer used for safety reasons, unless rights-ofway are restrained in urban ar eas. We have looked at it in the past and are looking at the interchange area again, said FDOTs District 2 spokeswoman Gina Busscher. neers say it will take about six to eight weeks to pull crash data and come up with some preliminary engineering options, she said. F rom page 1Two more die on 90September ballots in Macclenny, Glen mostly incumbentsThe weeklong qualifying period ended at noon on July 5 for candidates seeking five open seats on the Macclenny Commission and Glen St. Mary Town Council in September, and incumbents are on the ballot in all but one of the races. In the case of Glen, the three incumbents will run unopposed. There are new faces only in Group 4 Macclenny, where the seat occupied by Dr. Richard Johnson, who is stepping down after 24 years, will be sought by local clergyman and sheriffs department employee Sam Kitching, real estate company owner Dennis Collins and Kirk Gravelle, chairman of the Baker County Republican Party. The Press last week erroneously stated that Mr. Gravelle is an in surance executive. He is a first vice-president with Morgan Stanley in Jacksonville. No one qualified at the election supervisors office to challenge any of the Glen incumbents: Charles Reneau in Group 1, Steve Rhynehardt in Group 2 and Tommie Sue Davis in Group 3. The unopposed Macclenny incumbents are Tommy Johns in Group 2 and Mark Bryant for the remaining two years in Group 3. Mr. Bryant was recently appointed to replace Phil Rhoden, the new city manager. The first primary is September 10; if a runoff is held in the Macclenny race it will be September 24.

Its not as annoying as in the past when all the police traffic chattered in the background. Now its mostly confined to fire and rescue, and news organizations naturally have to keep an ear on the scanner for things like serious accidents and large fires. Over the years weve grown accustomed to a call that goes something like this: Sanderson rescue and Station 70 acci dent with injuries; US 90 and I-10. When that comes over the air, its a cinch were not the only ones thinking, Here we go again. Luckily, many of the accidents at that accursed intersection west of Sanderson produce minor injuries or none at all. In too many cases, as the public is well aware, there are fatalities and serious injuries. Such was the case last Friday when a Lake City couple lost their lives. Many victims in the past have been exiting the cloverleaf from westbound Interstate 10 onto US 90, which is four-laned as it goes under the interstate bridge. Others, like the couple last week, are on US 90 and struck by vehicles crossing US 90, most commonly to the gas station directly ahead. The reason? Confusion on the part of motorists from out of the area not familiar with the rather perplexing convergence of the two routes. Some probably run the stop sign at the end of the exit ramp; others are proceeding across 90 unaware of traffic patterns and some limited visibility. Still others are east or west on 90 and ambushed by vehicles coming off the interstate, or motorists attempting to navigate the confusing re-entry ramps from the gas station. In all too many cases, the results have been fatal. DOT says its looking into making the intersection safer. Eliminating the cloverleaf popular when I-10 was designed in the late 1950s would be prohibitively expensive, particularly in light of the relatively light traffic in the area. Try this: two sets of twin flashing red lights on the eastbound exit the first about 75 yards from US 90 and the second at the intersection. The state could mount large signs on both stanchions, just below the alternately flashing lights: Caution: Dangerous Intersection Ahead Look Both Ways. Since the majority of wrecks involve exiting vehicles, it would be a start. S olutions for treacherous 90 interchange ...Following last weeks fatal accident at the U.S. 90 interchange, we turned to Facebook for some common sense solutions. As reported this week, its proven to be a very treacherous location for motorists for years. Heres some of the comments we received from readers: Kim Phillips Long: Lights and some serious speed bumps. The ones coming off the interstate will be forced to slow down sooner. SoulDee Dennie: Maybe ll in the middle section so that those coming o of 10 wont just see the gas station straight across and zoom through without watching for trac coming from the other way where the overpass is. It would make it so they have to turn right o the exit instead. Clayton Yarbrough: Maybe a ashing stop sign on both the driv er and passenger side at the intersection where the stop sign is now would at least get their attention? Also a lower posted speed limit thru the four lane area on 90 of about 35 mph might help as well, but people will not obey it Im sure. Marie Johns Griffis: A red light would probably be the most helpful and maybe county and state troop ers setting up and ticketing people. All this is very expensive though. Would the county and state even consider it? I have almost been side swiped in my car and school bus by various semi-trucks and vehicles ex iting I-10 there. Lorie Williams: Signs on I-10 ap proaching the o ramp warning of the risks along with speed bumps and trac lights! Wouldnt hurt to have signs on 90, too, because there will always be those who ignore the warning signs, speed bumps and trac lights! DeAnna Rewis McDue: Lights, its dangerous! I almost T-boned a driver who never stopped coming o the ramp. Sandy Bryant: There is a stop sign there, but like the one at 121 coming o I-10, they just zoom through it. Maybe some speed bumps to get their attention? Flashers on the stop sign? Taylor Angie Robert: There have been way to many wrecks at this spot. I contacted DOT when my son in law was hurt in a wreck there. All they did was lower the speed limit from 60 to 50. There words were not enough trac to warrant a traf c light to be installed. I suggested speed strips on the exit ramps and a caution light but they wouldnt go for that either. We as a community need to get something done. My prayers to all the families who have lost someone here or have been injured. Adam Tomlin: Post a deputy out there and make some revenue o the offenders. Make the place famous like Lawtey. Rachel Ratliff Hodgson: I pray they do something ... I have had a few friends get into wrecks there and now two of my family members lives are gone.

Who are these people and why are they bothering me? I admit that, sort of, to a very small degree, I play games on the Internet. I have been known to try to track down hidden items in a Civil War mansion. I have on occasion broken down and fired a big red bird from a catapult at a scowling green pig. I tried to build a world civilization from scratch or chased the galactic Empire across the realms of space. But I never intruded on other peoples lives while doing it. So why are they intruding on mine? Its clear that I dont know enough about Facebook to keep people from sending me game requests. I get about 12 a day. The odd thing is, I dont play any of these games. So why would I want to give you a golden shovel or Japanese pagoda? If I want a farm Ill plant the tomato plant someone gave me in the back yard. If a cat is caught up a tree, Ill get it down with a ladder. A real one, not one I have to buy with online money. Ive tried, unsuccessfully at times, to avoid these games because I have something of an addictive personality. I avoid Facebook games for the same reason I dont play the lottery. If I actually won something, I would sell my childrens T-shirts at a yard sale to buy scratch-off tickets. The last time I was in North Carolina, I went with the family to Harrahs Casino in Cherokee. The tribe runs the casino and makes tons of money off it. Its full of people who have sold their kids Tshirts in yard sales and skipped scratch-off tickets for nickel slots. I felt positively young walking around in there, because there wasnt a single person who wasnt a card carrying member of AARP. Blue-haired ladies with a drink in one hand and a cigarette dangling from their lips fed one coin after another without even looking at the screen. They had 32 oz. cups full of coins. I watched for a while, transfixed by the flashing lights and rolling graphics. Sometimes they won and mostly they lost, but their facial expressions never changed. They emptied winnings back into the cup and kept going. I can sympathize on occasion when Im playing Bejeweled of Angry Birds. Just when Im ready to give up, Ill move to a new level and feel some ridiculous sense of accomplishment. It feels like Ive actually done something worthwhile and then Ill realize three hours have gone by and I still havent eaten lunch. So, in those moments I am akin to the blue-haired ladies. But at least theyve gotten another drink, I still havent eaten lunch. Ive backed off on my computer games recently when I got scolded by my son. Why are you playing these games instead of actually doing some thing? Dylan asked. I didnt have a good answer except that I had just killed an Elite Orc and had a Rock Troll in my sights. Somehow, as I opened my mouth to say it, I realized just how stupid it sounded. Time to actually do something. So, Im sorry PrincessLeia 66, Im not going to be able to buy you a grain silo or a pig or a new John Deere tractor. I have to eat lunch. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD US 90 & I-10 claims more livesDear Editor:In October 2012 I called every Baker County commission candisand mining in Baker County? The second: If elected, how will you vote on the matter? Every candidate said he was against sand mining in Baker County. They all answered the second question with a resounding No. So the hearing on Tuesday, July 16 wont be about the sand mining project proposed by Oldcastle and the deal with the Macclenny Commission. The real vote will be about C. H. I. C. have the credibility that the voters have assumed you possess and supported you? assumed you possessed when they supported you? integrity voters assumed you possessed when they supported you? The last C represents character. It is made up of many different elements, including but not limited to credibility, honor and integrity. It also includes having high moral standards and standing fast by them. This means, in many cases, doing what is right and not what is politically correct. Credibility, honor, integrity and character cannot be taken from you; they must be relinquished. If commissioners vote in favor of the sand mining project(s), they wont just be relinquishing those valuable traits, theyll be deliberately throwing them in the trash. They should pack their bags, move to Washington and rub shoulders with other honorable politicians like Harry Reed, Nancy Pelosi and President Obama.James E.

Mrs. Padgett claimed she was unaware of the second violation case until recently because her mother, who is in a nursing home, blocked her access to mail. Mr. Canaday pleaded a lack of funds and unreliable labor have kept him from tearing down the six dilapidated trailers and hauling them off. Another trailer on the property is used for storage and complies with the building code. In another case, the board advised Johnnie Ruth-Beck Taylor of Jacksonville to speed up removal of excess refuse, a vehicle and stor age trailers on her property on Palmetto Pl. off Cowpen Rd. between Sanderson and Glen St. Mary. Ms. Taylor claimed no one is living in a camper trailer on the propas a minister, adding she plans to one day build a residence on the tract that will also serve as a home of wayward boys. The CEB earlier found the property in violation, and as of this week compliance on her Hillcrest Dr. property near Macclenny, and cleared it of excess refuse. The case was set for a hearing that evening. A Macclenny man was injured seriously the evening of July 3 when his motorcycle struck the rear of a vehicle in front of him on US 90 in the east city. Trooper Justin Smatt of the Florida Highway Patrol said it is not known why Lonzie Johns, 47, steered his 1995 Harley-Da vidson into the back of a 2005 Acura driven by Genie Taylor, 17, of Macclenny about 6:25. Both were eastbound at the time just west of First St. The troopers report states the mishap was alcohol related and charges are pending. Ms. Taylor was not injured. FHP also reported the past week that a Macclenny man was at the controls of a CSX freight that struck a vehicle as it crossed the tracks in a heavy rainstorm the afternoon of July 3. Martin Beckles, 51, of Ocala failed to see the southbound train as he approached the crossing in a 2002 Ford van that was pushed further south along the tracks after being struck on the right side. Mr. Beckles turned into a private drive from US 301 south of Hawthorne just prior to the 3:55 pm accident that sent him critically injured to Shands at UF Gainesville. The train engineer was identiclenny. Trooper Bruce Simmons indicated a blood test will determine if alcohol was a factor.B AKER COUNTY C ODE ENFORCEMENTFour months to demolish, remove trailers from park Roger RaulersonWELLDRILLING Licensed & InsuredFamily Owned & Operated24 HOURService Calls259-7531Were proud of our name and we stand behind our work!

They first offered to give the mined land to the county and they are now Indian giving the land to the city instead. That it will be pits theyre giving the city and not usable land... WHAT a gift! County Commissioner Mark Hartley made a motion to deny their special exception to mine at the very first public hearing. They will not offer to maintain Hwy. 228 S when they own a paving company. 400 trips a day will deteriorate 228 and end up costing tax payers. They offered 6 jobs originally, operating with 2 shifts and are now cutting out shifts and only operating 8 hours a day. Less shifts equal less jobs. They have said they are not going to drill into the Lower Floridian Aquifer. What about the other two? The upper and the superficial. A new gas/convenience store would generate more jobs and tax dollars than this mine. They could seek to re-permit existing wells already in the mining area and pump water from the aquifer using those. Removing large amounts of water from the aquifer can cause damage to lakes, streams and deep wells.

The EMS department has been running an unpaid bills generated by patients transported to hospitals by county ambulances. The county hired a private collection agency last year to increase revenue through more aggressive collections procedures, but it hasnt route may be needed. Thats why the County Manager C.J. Thompson was directed the evening of July 2 to seek proposals from outside contractors. Commissioner James Croft then asked how other commissioners felt about seeking requests for proposals from private companies to take over EMS rescue operations. Noting that private ambulance companies had recently claimed they could save the county hundreds of thousands of dollars, Mr. Croft said the county should look into it. I think now would be the time to approach it rather than later, Mr. Croft said. Commissioner Anderson said he had mixed feelings. On the one hand, he said, he felt the county should give EMS Director David RichOn the other hand, he said he wants the kind of savings that have been dangled in front of the commission by other companies, adding: Im right on the fence. That brought a noticeably irritated EMS director to the podium to state his disappointment in the board for even discussing such an issue without any prior notice. not fair to EMS employees or me, Mr. Richardson told commissioners. I take offense to it. I thought it was resolved. I guess its not. He said if he had known commissioners were going to be discussing the issue he could have packed the meeting room with paramedics and other EMS employees. Mr. Croft assured Mr. Richardson that he meant no offense to you at all, but that he and cut expenses because the county is facing In other business that evening: that the Florida Division of Forestry expressed an interest in taking over the countys St. Marys Shoals Park as a state-managed park. This is just exploratory, Mr. Thompson said. Were not selling it. They want to make it a state park. When he has more information, possibly a more detailed proposal, hell report back to the board, he said. For months now, county officials have been discussing the future of the 2,300-acre St. Marys Shoals Park, which offers separate scenic trails for horseback riding and hiking for those who enjoy the more robust activity of riding all-terrain vehicles. Theres been talk of charging admission fees to help offset park maintenance and operations costs and some have questioned whether the county can afford to continue spending money on park improvements. stead, the county may look into leasing some vehicles instead of buying new ones, or bor rowing money to pay cash for new vehicles instead of leasing.B AKER COUNTY COMMISSIONPrivate rescue billing on tableA member of the Baker County Volunteer Fire Department was arrested recently for stealing over $1000 worth of property from Station 10 on SR 121 South.

Despite the soggy conditions, many families visited the park o West Boulevard to enjoy craft and food vendors, music and the reworks show that ended the event sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, the City of Macclenny and Baker County.

Other teachers may have come to similar conclusions anecdotally, but Ms. Rowan, whose taught kindergarten for the last 14 years, has the research to back it up. Four years ago the Taylor resident and Jacksonville native went back to school to earn her doctorate degree in education, an effort that culminated with her dissertation on the factors that motivate at-risk students to achieve academic success. It all began, of all places, at a Wildcat football game. Children who received high marks on their FCAT exams were being honored at half-time. That got Mrs. Rowan thinking about her potential research topic. What exactly makes children from low-income households or those with troubled home lives succeed in school, despite their less than privileged backgrounds? What has worked here, in Baker County, in this regard? She began by clearing her research activities with school ofsights on recruiting past graduates of Baker County High School who were at one time previously labeled at-risk students. I needed kids who defeated the odds, said Mrs. Rowan. She interviewed six graduates between the ages of 18 and 24. The group consisted of a male and five females, all of whom were white. A couple of them had barely skated by and a couple of them were honor students, so I had both ends of the spectrum, Mrs. Rowan said. She also interviewed eight current teachers, who were idenhighly motivational. Next Mrs. Rowman reviewed previous academic research on motivating at-risk youths and was pleasantly surprised that the literature appeared to support Everything lined up, she said. Putting together the caring and high expectations were the two main things ... Teachers have to care and students have to feel cared for to be motivated. Teachers need to have high expectations of students and students need to have high expectations of teachers for them to be motivated. One comment she heard dur ing the student interviews spoke to the low standards some teachers demonstrated. The student said one former teacher gave out A grades to students who obviously didnt make an effort. Its nice for your GPA, she said, but it means nothing. When everybody gets an A and I know I worked hard, that doesnt motivate me. She said I want to work for my grade and I shouldnt have the same grade as someone who didnt work hard, said Mrs. Rowan. She also heard stories about teachers who cared enough for struggling students to intervene in their lives. One student who the teacher described as just of kind of there but doing okay suddenly took a dive. The teacher discovered his home had no power, he was washing his clothes in the sink at night and suffering from body odor problems. The teacher arranged for the student to discreetly drop off clothes for her to wash and return the next day. Another teacher had a student with a very disrup tive home life and fostered the student until graduation. She [the student] was shown a different way to live, that you dont have to live like you were raised, said Mrs. Rowan. The child went on to start a career in nursing. an developed a training for fellow teachers to provide motivational strategies to enhance instruction for students at risk of academic failure, reads a synopsis of her research for a district-wide inquiry showcase held in late May. The showcase featured more than two dozen presentations from local teachers, including Mrs. Rowan, that covered a myriad of topics from incorporating new common core standards in kindergarten classrooms to teaching math through music. Mrs. Rowan shared her presentation with two groups of 15 to 20 teachers, mostly from elementary schools. She said they were emotional and brought some veteran teachers to tears. research last summer. She says it changed her perspective greatly this past school year. It really made me think much differently about the group of kids I had, explained Mrs. Rowan. Some came in with every advantage top of the class, wonderful parents and a wonderful matter what teacher they had. But there were others who were the complete opposite. Those were the ones on days I wasnt feeling too caring, we had rougher days. I had to realize OK, lets regroup and rethink this. I ex pected him or her to behave correctly and they expected things of me too. We had that open communication and life was so much easier. her doctorate degree, Mrs. Rowan hopes to get her dissertation results published in an academ ic journal and continue her research with at-risk students. Expanding her research to other localities or to minority students is a possibility, she said. Her forte: motivating at-risk students PHOTO BY JOEL ADD I NGTON Kindergarten teacher Tanyia Rowan at the Pre-K Kindergarten Center this summer.Acrylic paintingThe Baker County Career and Adult Education Center is offering acrylic painting art activities for citizens 55 years and older.

ursday, July 11, 2013 T B C P Page 11 Page10JULY 11, 2013 JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comBaker County High School varsity boys basketball coach Charles Ruise Sr. is expecting big things from the team when the season tips off later this year, and the foundation for that is being laid this summer. The Wildcats begin summer games July 9 against Forrest, and will play nine more games over the course of the next month. Winning isnt as important in these games, as they will primarily be used to get players some additional time on the court. We have a lot of first year and inexperienced varsity guys, Ruise said. Summer ball is an opportunity to gain experience as a team. Were hoping to grow some kids as players in the process. The young players will have a chance to get that much-needed experience during the summer basketball schedule as several key players, including the coachs son, Charles Ruise Jr., will be playing in the AAU Nationals in Orlando later this month. When the players come back from AAU, well have a wellrounded team with the younger guys getting playing time, the elder Ruise said. The coach said he expects returning players like his son, Brandon Lewis, Jesse Gardner and Adrian Robinson to become leaders for the team. Theyre the main ones were looking forward to stepping up, he said, along with the newcomers who are really doing some good things for us. While summer ball is a major asset to improving the team, the Ruise family will be world traveled by the end of summer to ensure they have done everything possible to prepare for the upcoming season. Ruise Jr. traveled across the country in late June to participate in the Adidas Phenom150 camp in San Diego. The countrys top high school basketball players took part in the camp, and the BCHS star was among the players at the camp, according to his father, and was named to the All-Star team. The experience in San Diego should prove valuable this season as he played against tougher competition than he will in the fall, Ruise Sr. said. The younger Ruise isnt the only one traveling for basketball, as his dad will be in Nassau, the Bahamas from July 15-17 for a basketball camp himself. Im doing a clinic and camp that will teach the skills we pro vide to our kids, Ruise said. Were hoping to bring developmental skills and drills back stateside to add some internateam. All of this hard work could pay off in a big way once basketball season rolls around, and Coach Ruise wants people to know it. We encourage everyone to look forward to Wildcat basket ball, he said. Were going to be exciting and fun to watch. We re ally want to see a packed gym this year.

JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comHundreds of people gather at Macclennys Knabb Sports Complex every Tuesday and Friday from June until August to participate in the Church Coed Volleyball Ministry of Baker County. The volleyball league has grown in popularity almost ev ery year since it was created more than 15 years ago. Commitwith maybe five teams. The league now boasts 52 teams with more than 300 players from 15 churches in the area. There are a lot of families and spectators who come, Mrs. close to 500 people come through between 6:30 and 11 oclock. We keep a lot of kids off the streets. But what makes the league so popular? Its good clean fun, said the Rev. Timothy Alford, the associate pastor of Dinkins Church. Its a chance to show people we have a life outside of going to church. The crowds who participate each week make playing more enjoyable, added Deric Thomas of Emmanuel Baptist Church. Its awesome, he said. Its packed every time. Its like hav ing a tournament two to three months every year. Its a good community and everyone has good attitudes. The league is divided into youth and adult age brackets who can play either competitive or for leisure. There are minor rules differences between the two play types, but there is one constant through it all: players have to attend at least one church service a week to participate. The religious ties are the main reason many people participate every week. Teams almost always pray together following their games, and the players use the games as an opportunity to meet people from other churches and denominations. Its good fellowship, said Chrystal Pipkins of Emmanuel Baptist Church. We get to worship the Lord in our own way. Mr. Alford said the league is another way to help people and try to bring them closer to God. We use it as a tool to spread the word, Mr. Alford said. Hopefully it will entice someone to the Lord. We use it as a tool to save lives. The volleyball league is more than another opportunity for Christians to worship; its also used to give back to the community. The ministry uses the league fees for local causes and the proceeds of drink sales go to helping needy families. Although most of the people play for leisure, there is still an award the players strive to earn at the end of the year. The Best Christian Attitude Award is given to the team that best epitomizes Christian ideals. Its more challenging as a team award because every member has to exemplify what it means to be a Christian, Mr. Alford said. Winning the Best Christian Attitude Award means more than anything here, Mr. Alford said, whose churchs team has won the award twice. It means I let my light shine. The Church Coed Volleyball Ministry of Baker County plays games every Tuesday and Thurssaid anyone is welcome to attend the games, which run through August 2.We have more!More for sales, automobiles, help wanteds, rentals, FSBO and yard sales www.bakercountypress.com Need a phone number for a classied ad and dont have the paper handy?bakercountypress.com PRESS CLASSIFIED S ONLY$7.00 cash/check Deadline M onday at 5:00 THE BAKER COUN T Y PRESS

Several local teams have already been crowned district champions, while a few others will get the chance to play for the title through the remainder of the week. The major softball team won the district title in front of a home crowd on Friday, July 5. The team rolled to an 11-2 victory over Yulee to claim the title, led by MacKenzie Hickmans dominant pitching performance as she carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning and struck out six batters. The senior softball team also put forth an impressive effort, blowing out Yulee 15-1 in trict championship. The Baker County team took the lead on Angel ONeals two-run triple in looked back. They added six runs in the third and another seven in the fourth to have the game called early. Both teams advanced to sectionals by winning the district title. The softball sectionals will also be played at Minger Fields starting July 13. Major team coach Robert Davis said hes proud of what the team has accomplished, but he knows the hard work is still ahead of them in sectionals. Its not going to be a cake walk, Coach Davis said. Well have to take it one inning at a time and hope the dice roll in our favor. While the softball teams played well at home, the baseball teams have been just as successful spread out across different locations. The 10 and 11-year-old baseball team tore through the tournament in Yulee, winning its three games by a combined score of 42-8. They won the district championship by defeating the Navy Ortega League team 16-6 on July 6. The 9 and 10-year-old Baker County A team has had an incredible ride to a potential championship game against the Mill Creek A team on July 9. The two teams already played once on July 4 with Baker County winning 27-16. Baker County trailed 16-13 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth. They were able to put together an unbelievable 14-run two-out rally to take the lead that led them to victory. Coach David Crummey said hes never seen a game turnaround like that in one inning and that Creek squad. We decided we were going to fight till the end, and after we were done in our half of the inning it was 27 to 16, Coach Crummey said. The team defeated Yulee the next day 15-4 in four innings to earn a spot in the championship game. If Baker County wins again, the team travels to Mims, FL, for sectional play this weekend. If they lose, they play Mill Creek once again Wednesday for the district crown. But not all Baker County teams have been so successful. The 9 and 10-year-old softball and 10 and 11-year-old softball teams were both eliminated after games. The 9 and 10-year-old base ment game, but then lost its next two to get eliminated from the tournament. The teams final game was a close 17-16 loss to San Mateo on July 3. The Major baseball team put together a good run after losing its second game 11-0 to Arlington on July 3. The team beat Navy Ortega League and Yulee by a combined score of 25-5 before falling to Callahan 18-2 on July 6. While most tournaments were crowning champions during the July 4 weekend, other tournaments were just getting underway. Both the junior and senior baseball tournaments started July 6 with Baker County teams having mixed results. The junior team lost its bined score of 29-9 to get eliminated from the tournament. After losing its first game to Arlington 12-4, the Baker County senior baseball team bounced back with a 19-9 victory over Yulee July 8. The team will once again face elimination in its game against Arlington July 9. The winner of the game advances another step closer to the championship while the loser goes home. The junior softball team kicked off its tournament play at home July 8 against St. Augustine. The Baker County team of-three series 15-5. They get a chance to redeem themselves in the second game Tuesday night. If they win, an other game will be held right after to determine the district champion. See next weeks edition for continued coverage of the tournaments and the results from the sectional games.
