COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Press recently sent Macclenny City Commission candidates Dennis Collins, Sam Kitching and Kirk Gravelle eight questions about their plans for city government, taxes, business and other issues relevent to the future of Macclenny. What follows below are those questions, which were culled from readers and newspaper staff, and answers from the candidates, who had a week to formulate their responses. The city commission election is September 10 at the Suite A; not at polling precincts. Press: Why are you running for city commission? Kitching : I love this community and the success of the City of Macclenny. I moved back to Macclenny by choice in June of 1994. Since my return the number of houses in Macclenny have more than doubled, but the atmosphere has remained consistently friendly. I want to serve this community that has given so much to me and my family. Collins: I believe that Macclenny is at a crossroads. We either have to work together to promote positive change and growth, or let the economy continue to stag nate and deteriorate. There are more vacant properties in our city now than a year ago. The tax base is smaller than it was a year ago. We have to do more with less. Our current commission is already forward thinking. I want to join them because I believe that I will be an asset to the commission by providing energy and a fresh, new perspective when evaluating issues and Gravelle: Im running to make a differ ence in our community, move Macclenny forward to be more business friendly and set a good example of civic involvement for our citizens, my family and my children. I believe the citizens need someone that listens to their concerns and can act in their best interest and that of the citys to maintain our great quality of life while striving to improve. Press: What will be your top priorities in Kitching: My top priority in year one is to expand my knowledge of all of the factors involved in the challenges that face the city. I want to make sure that the city is always open to all citizens for their perspectives on major issues and that those perspectives are given a fair hearing. Effective community progress is generated by honest discussion and negotiation. Collins: My top priority is to promote growth. Before moving lived in Brevard County where there was an explosion of growth in a new town called Viera. What was at one time farm land and cow pasture be came a thriving center for county government, commerce, retail, new homes and schools. I understand both the positive and negative effects growth has on the local economy and the city in frastructure. I see a combination of all types of growth: (1) housGrowth must be planned and controlled so that it does not over burden our existing roads, utilities and city services. If there are more businesses and new residential housing, the citys tax base will increase allowing for improvement of the city infrastructure and continued beauI see Macclenny as a forerunner, out-pacing the county, by annexing tracts of land for housing and commercial growth. Macclenny can set the pace for growth. Gravelle: I will move the city government towards a pro-business direction and put policies in place that will bring a more diverse business tax base and hence more money to our community without placing undue tax burden on our citizens. We can do more with a pro-business plan of but there is always room for improvement and all processes and procedures should be reviewed for peak performance.

Ms. Carter and the children were detained as they attempted to leave the store, and she insisted to Deputy Robert Simpkins she was unaware that they were off stealing merchandise and bringing it back to her. One of the nieces was quoted by the other as saying at one point, Im going to do my thing. Her aunt then replied, Okay, go and do your thing. The children appeared to have been indirectly allowed to steal the items, by them stating they told their aunt they needed several items for school, and her stating to them she couldnt afford to buy them all, but they would do what they had to do to get the items they needed, concluded the deputy.

Downtown Macclenny (roughly from the courthouse west to Lowder St.) is looking shabby or should I say shabbier. Some blocks are worse than others, and its not all bad. The courthouse and adjacent Chevrolet dealership are nicely maintained. The newly updated City Hall is looking very attractive. CVS has a nice street presence there on the corner The Village Bistro recently refurbished at the corner of storefronts across US 90 look good, as does the Crockett Building to the west. And there are a few other pockets of buildings along the strip that are kept up as busy retail destinations, but they are outnumbered by structures that time generally has passed by. For those, the moniker Miracle Mile is more suited to the fact that its a miracle some of them are still standing. Granted, the economys been in the tank and not con ducive to the small-scale retail segment that would most likely occupy a downtown commer cial center replaced by an inter state highway. Those of us who live and work downtown are aware that the deterioration began long before the Great Recession; its One often fields the question: Why doesnt the city do more about revitalizing downtown? The city has done some, mostly cosmetic, things to make it more attractive. It could do more with street lamps, parking improve ments and more landscaping, but waiting around for City Hall to do something about actual structures and marketing them as a commercial district goes down the wrong road. What Macclenny could, and should do, is make a serious effort toward giving property owners incentives to renovate to spur commercial growth. Property tax breaks for exiting or new owners via a special district are the best avenue toward that goal, and if city fathers are at fault over the years for the appearance of downtown, its for lack of that serious effort. The rest of it is up to property owners themselves. Your buildings will do nothing but deteriorate further with the passage of time. Shabby now means shabbier tomorrow. This weeks column is an other of my random musings about life. Which means I have a lot of stuff banging around in my head that doesnt exactly make up a full column. Honesty is the best policy. So here goes. I think we should move the USA off the gold standard. Its based on the, probably fictitious, assumption that paper money is matched someits equivalent in gold. The gold standard was put in place after the Civil War when greenbacks werent worth the paper they were printed on. But its out of date. It should be replaced by something way more valuable and relevant. The Printer Ink Standard. I bought printer ink the other day for all the printers in the library at school. Its a good thing I wasnt using my own money because it came to close to $100 for the three printers. So I did a little calculating. I looked at the ounces of ink and sure enough. Printer ink is worth more per ounce than gold. Its as bad as a paperback college textbook costing What a racket. So now, men can tell their wives that they are worth their weight in printer ink. dering in the mall this weekend, something that we dont do very often, and something jumped in my head. I was walking past the plussized section and was horrified at what I saw. The fashion designers who make plus-sized clothing should be ashamed of themselves. What they design for plussized women is hideous. It is either unflattering with gigantic floral prints, zebra stripes, fluffs and ruffles from here to eternity, or made out of fabric that is not found in nature. Ive noticed this a number of times, but it was just so obvious as I walked from store to store. It didnt matter where I went or how up-market the store, the so-called fashions for plussized women just made me angry. It was as if the design a size 4 we arent wasting our time creating anything interesting or attractive for you. Think Im kidding? The farther up the scale, the worse the fashions looked. It was as if the designers said, the way you disguise weight is by a print so busy it looks like an optical illusion. Project Runways Tim Gunn has railed against this for years to little effect, even having the designers on the show design for plus-sized women. But unfortunately, many of those designers just repeat the terrible designs. Heres what I dont get. Designers are missing out on a very lucrative market worth millions of dollars. Give women fashionable clothes in plus sizes and they will buy them, even if they cost a little more. didnt see Miley Cyrus nearly X-rated performance on the MTV Video Music Awards, but I caught a replay. I think it shocked even the usually un-shockable music industry. From the look on the faces of Will Smith and his family to her bump and grind, that was the case. Its a long way from Hannah Montana. But maybe thats why she did it. Who knows what goes on in peoples heads? Im sure Billy Ray Cyrus had his Achy Breaky Heart quaking. case you havent heard, Ben Affleck is the new Batman. Comic book geeks all over cyberspace immediately did the Internet version of jumping in front of a train. The Twitterverse exploded. Facebook went nuts. He will have gigantic shoes to fill. Christian Bale was brilliant as the caped crusader, even though I had a hard time understanding half of what he was saying when he put on the hood and cape. Affleck has played a superhero before. He was a very forgettable Daredevil early in his career. But Im not too concerned because Affleck does have one Jennifer Garner. Can you say Catwoman? Id be okay with that.Sad to see our state and country come to this. Nick Mercorella: Blah, blah, blah. New speak is still corrupt thinking. Local control of schools is the American ideal. If thinking globally were so benecial why are we always sending aid overseas? Sending troops to pro tect other countries? Using our Navy to keep trade routes free? We have failing schools because we have failing families. Thank the war on poverty for that. Jay Cannaday: And yet most graduates still cant read, write, spell or tell you what the state capital is. Sad. Rich DuBois: I will be pulling my kids out to home school until a couple things happen. 1. Schools go back to the local community level as intended. 2. New legislation is submitted to block and keep this crap out of our schools. 3. Arne Duncan [US Secretary of Education] is arrested along with the rest involved with violating the Constitution. People this is your school. Should it not be your choice how and what your kids are taught. Letting the federal government into the school is crazy. They give your school money and in return they take control. Stephanie Miller: Glad this will be my girls last year in the public school system.Medicinal pot in F lorida?A campaign is underway to get a referendum on the November ballot to le galize marijuana for medicinal use.

How could it be any worse than the pain pills they are on now? Vickie Wiest Thick: Yes, not only would it be good for terminally ill patients but we should legalize it and tax it and apply the money to the national debt!

Mandated by Conciency in reducing the cost of care, the cut goes too far. If the would fail to cover the basic cost of dialysis. for people with end stage renal disease, or ESRD, the cost was beyond reach of average Americans. Panels of experts consisting of physicians, hospital administrators and clergy chose who received dialysis and who would not. Who would live and who listened. began to confer automatic eligibility on anyone diagnosed in history, whether an Amerigovernment would cover their cost of care if their kidneys be the largest in the history of the ESRD program. Since there are no plans on how they will manage the impact of Medicare dialysis This rule could cut jobs, close our dialysis clinic, lead to less lab work, stop medicines, etc. This rule will cost our clinic in ery year. It can trickle down to many other jobs and services like medical waste services, telephone, fax, Internet, cable, local stores, restaurants, etc. This could also mean some patients going without food, medicine or skipping dialysis treatments. Please contact congressmen, senators, etc. and tell them to stop this rule. We do not want things to go By helping you could save lots of lives, including someone you love.Marie Freeman Glen St. MaryRestore Medicare dialysis subsidies Incentives are key to US 90 revival

Commissioner Tommy Johns was absent for health reasons. You all are paying 17 percent of the total sheriffs budget, said Sheriff Dobson, adding that the sheriffs office total budget of taxpayers. As he often does, Mayor Gary Dopson pointed out that Macclenny property owners pay county taxes, too, which helps feed the sheriffs budget. For his part, the sheriff said the citys portion of the sheriffs budget pays for two deputies to seven days a week and one drug investigator assigned to the area. It doesnt include other services like dispatchers and other investigators who work on cases within the city, he said. With Walmart, as you can imagine, we spend a lot of time out there. We just lump it all together and try to get the job done, said Sheriff Dobson. If we have to bring four deputies into the city we bring in four. At there. increase in the sheriffs city budget proposal was the result of not sion contributions mandated by expenses. higher costs for vehicles, gas and uniforms. Mayor Dopson took time to explain the history of the citys relationship with the sheriffs ofpresentation. He said the city disbanded its police department in 1980 and outsourced law enforcement to the county sheriff, a move he dubbed more economical. The mayor said while city property owners pay county taxes, the contract with BCSO is for extra police protection. He also noted that the citys police budrent year. Thats not bad in that many years with some increase in personnel during that time too, he said. Its a partnership that I think has worked for us, said Sheriff Dobson. Weve never wavered. He closed the discussion on his budget with this: I think weve done a good job as far as protecting Baker County citizens. We havent had a homicide in seven years. At the end of the two-plushour workshop Mayor Dopson reminded fellow commissioners that the share of the retirement increase sought by the sheriff the size of his budget. We are well patrolled, but when money gets tight you either go up on taxes, and weve not wanted to do that, so you have to decide what services you want to cut, said the mayor.

F rom page 1 based on recent inmate populations. The 110 number had been recommended by Sher iff Joey Dobson last month as a way to lower the guarantee that the inmate count wont exceed 110. Do you still think its going to be 110? Commissioner Adam Giddens asked the sheriff. We do, Sheriff Dobson replied, adding that judges are releasing more people on bond instead of sending them directly to jail and that cases are being disposed of more quickly. However, he conceded that the actual number could be higher. Thats what concerned commissioners, who said the county would have to come up with more money next year if the actual inmate count exceeded the average daily population budgeted. Commissioner James Croft recommended re calculating the inmate housing expense which is cause he said the average daily head count has been But other commissioners disagreed, saying they additional revenue if necessary next year. Finally, my Anderson adding optimistically and hope its 109. The second additional cost factored into the budget, which was approved by commissioners during mates had run up in medical billings in excess of the quired to pay the BCDC for inmate medical care. Commissioners have argued in recent weeks that the county is not obligated to pay the debt because the contract signed with the BCDC four years ago cal expenses. Most of them held to that line of thinking last week but ultimately voted to pay the money any way after receiving input from interim county attorney Will Sexton and discussing the matter amongst themselves. The board had asked for a legal opinion on the issue but never received one from former county attorney Terry Brown, who resigned a few weeks ago for health reasons and was replaced temporarily by Mr. Sexton. He told commissioners the decision was theirs but that refusing to pay it likely would lead to a lawsuit. The contract between the county and the BCDC, Mr. Sexton said, is not clear on its face as to whether the county has any legal obligation to pay anything ed that federal agencies pay the same daily rate that the county pays and pays all of the medical expenses that inmates accrue each year. Ultimately, the board of county commissioners not, he said. You dont have to if you dont want to. But choosing not to pay in all likelihood would put cies that provided medical care to the inmates, Mr. Sexton told commissioners. If the vendors dont get paid theyre probably going to sue the BCDC, the sheriff and the county, he said. In any case, he said, the contract with the BCDC must be amended to clarify the issue. On that point, everyone agreed. County Manager Thompson told commissioners that it was his understanding that the vendors have been paid and that the BCDC was looking for reimbursement. Commissioner Jimmy Anderson, who said he regularly attends the BCDC quarterly board meetings, said he thought the agency was continuing to pay the excess medical billings but that there is still a balance. Commissioner Gordon Crews said the county was not legally obligated to pay it, but probably should pay it out of a sense of ethical or moral respon sibility especially since federal agencies pay the same rate the county pays for housing in mates and pays all medical bills for federal detainees. it?

Commissioners said they thought it was a good idea. They dont have as much staff resources as we do, Mr. Thompson said, adding that the county could send over a building inspector for up to two days a week in Union County, which is furnishing a vehicle. I think its a great idea, Mr. Anderson said. Its thinking out of the box and I think we need to do that. The board agreed to a one-year deal, at the end of which time the arrangement will be reevaluated to make sure Baker Countys needs are not being shortchanged in the process.

So responded former county attorney Terry Brown recently to a published report in The Press earlier this month that he believes made him look like the depraved antagonist in the recent divorce from fellow attorney Carolyn Kowalski of St. Augustine, his fourth wife. In the article, Press managing editor quoted from court documents related to the cou ples divorce earlier this year in St. Johns County. In seeking a protective order, Ms. Kowalski accused Mr. Brown of physical abuse and of being a sex addict. The only record of physical abuse involving her came from a daughter who accused her mother of choking her, and that she had struck both of her daughters in the past, claims Mr. Brown, who produced statements taken by police that appeared to back up the incidents. He also claims Ms. Kowalskis two children were removed from her custody in Tennessee as a result of her abusive behavior. All of this (her accusations in the court records) were designed to discredit me because Im goowes me (for past legal fees and loans for a condominium they occupied), declared Mr. Brown, County Commission for a quarter century, along with several other local boards for shorter durations. Mr. Brown, who said he reconciled recently with his second ex-wife and wants to concentrate on getting well both physically and mentally, vows hes determined to move on beyond the acrimony of the recent divorce. By stipulated agreement expected to be approved by the Florida Supreme Court, he agreed not to re-activate his law license after giving it up because of what he and several doctors have determined is diminished mental capacity brought on by two small strokes. Mr. Brown says they affected his memory and cognitive function. Ms. Kowalski earlier this year initiated a grievance with the Florida Bar and by agreeing to a stipulated settlement, Mr. Brown avoided a formal hearing on the state of his mental capabilities. He indicated hell devote his energy to a foundation established in memory of his late sister Gina that supports a religiousbased boarding school in Kenya, Africa for children of the Maasi Tribe.

At the commissions budget workshop the evening of Au Director Darryl Register asked commissioners to consider chip years to help fund the Choose Baker marketing campaign, which is part of the Strategic Action Plan for Economic Vitality developed by consultant Shane Adams with input from local business and government lead ers. The effort, designed to bring high-wage jobs to the county, is expected to roll out next month. It follows the launch of the Chambers new website and visitors guide this summer. Mr. Adams told commissioners something they probably already knew that half the local workforce have jobs outside of Baker County and half the countys jobs are tied to government. We have to diversify our workforce. Thats critical to Baker Countys future, said Mr. Adams, who was hired by the Chamber to help formulate the initiative. Though Mr. Register and Mr. Adams were short on the strategic plans details, they said its impact was modeled by University fessor Harriet Stranahan. The computer analysis pronew jobs to the county paying generating $4.78 million in state and local tax revenue.

To be successful at this, I want to hire a full-time person to work 99.9 percent of their time on economic development, Mr. Register told the board. Even so, the Chamber director said a one-year pledge would be appreciated. As small as the Chamber budget is, its as tight as its ever been. I understand what you are dealing with, said Mr. Register. Mayor Dopson said he wasnt speaking for the whole board, but year commitment now would be fair to future commissioners. They may be totally in disagreement, he said, adding later that the Chamber is set to receive from the citys proposed budget, which would bring the citys toIm not trying to make that decision for others, but I wanted Mayor Dopson said.

He said he made the same request to the county commission and its his understanding the money is in14 spending plan as well. We can be more competitive with our neighbors and this will help with that, he told the city commissioners. Housing authority director seeks funding for programs survival The Macclenny Housing Authority also made a request of commissioners last week. Its executive director, Lynne Walker, took the podium seeking a reduction in the payment the authority makes to the city in lieu of property taxes. The payment is set at 10 percent of the total revenue paid by That would help us immensely, she told commissioners. Ms. Walkers written request to the city states that federal bud get cuts and the need for air conditioning and roof replacements are threatening the authoritys survival. Were waiting on some fundbeen considerably cut as well and were not sure when we would get it. They are talking in the neighborhood of $88,000, she said. I wont be able to cover all my AC and roofs for that. Im just going to have to piece-meal it as I have to.

On most of this, we do need it, responded Chief Dugger, adding that the average age of department equipment is more than 18 years. One repair expense to the departments ladder truck was prompted by damage caused by a former employee, he said.

Thompson told the board that the insurance committee members recommended a plan carrying some of the other plans. However, employees will have to pay 100 percent of the addi tional premium amount. The county is only responsible for 18 percent. The total premium for the package, which includes dental, vision and life insurance, will be last year. Currently, the county pays of the total insurance cost, and employees pay only 4 percent.

ursday, August 29, 2013 T B C P Page 11 Page 10 T B C P ursday, August 29, 2013Kitching: I will pursue any change that will promote harmonious growth and the greatest good for all citizens. I will always support changes that have empirical evidence to support those changes. Collins: I am not looking to change our current city government. I would like to meet with leaders in a city that is growing, moving forward and making positive changes so that we can exchange ideas and get a feel for how they have successfully handled some of the challenges facing Macclenny. Together with the other commissioners, I want to change the peoples thought process through education by proving that not all change is harmful. We need to evaluate issues using current factual data and make difficult decisions based on facts, not emotion. Gravelle policies that are stopping growth and revamp or remove them completely, look at a rebate program for jobs verses pay for play incentives, and offer some type of incentives on rebate basis to grow jobs. Press: What would you do, taxes and fees? Kitching: City taxes are reasonable and have not increased in several years. Everything the city does costs more today than ment, wages, conformity to regulations and demand for services have all increased and the city cient operation. I favor keeping personal property taxes as low as reasonably possible. With regard to fees, I support the present commission in its consideration of a moratorium on impact fees. All fees should be service provided for those fees. Collins: With a shrink ing tax base, I really dont see how city taxes can be lowered. Through the very diligent effort of the city commission, the millage rate been increased years yet the budget is always balanced. We need to improve the crumbling sewer system, we need to pave roads, we need to enforce ordinances that are cur rently on the books, and we need to have the street signs spelled correctly. Reducing taxes could potentially mean a reduction in city services and it could set the stage be very cautious with regard to taxes. City impact fees are anothGravelle : The best way to lower taxes is to grow the tax base, so the amount charged per person is spread out among more taxpayers; thereby reducing the amount each taxpayer is taxed. An expanded and diverse business community will achieve this. Press: What would you do, money? Kitching: Avoid useless spending and prevent waste. Get the best value for every dollar. Go line by line in budgeting and make sure that spending does not exceed the budget. Collins: I would review and bid out all contracts for services. Sometimes when the same contract is in place for too long, it gets more expensive than it needs to be. We may or may not be able to secure the same services for less mon ey, but unless we re-bid it, we will never know. Based on the over $700,000 is paid to the county for law enforcement which consists of two full-time depufor enhanced police protection. On the other hand, we have our under $700,000 which consists of two administrative positions my opinion, the feasibility of this arrangement for enhanced police protection needs to be re-evaluated. Gravelle : There are always new technologies that can help us save money and we should explore those opportunities, as the city previously did with the garbage pickup. However, I do believe that the city has done a fine job of running an efficient organias our city police force thereby relieving us of the expenditure of we also get the better part of that deal as city residents fund only Press: What would you do, specifically, to make the city more attractive to new businesses? Kitching: Make sure that city imposed regulations encourage new businesses and provide assistance to existing businesses. Keep all city services available at a reasonable cost. Encourage those businesses that are presently interested in coming to Macclenny. Collins: We need to stimulate economic growth within the city. We should review the city impact fees to see if they can be reduced or eliminated so that we can offer incentives to new businesses willing to locate in Macclenny. I personally wrote letters to a large two large land developers, one in an effort to entice them to move their opera tions to or open a branch in Macclenny. We have the space for building and a labor force to staff just about any kind of business. However, I cant do this alone. Gravelle: I would bring the sign ordinance in compliance with state regulations, reduce our impact fees to bring them more in line with other communities our size making us competitive again, as well as advocating tax incentives as a rebate program, for new business based on the amount of jobs it would bring to the community. Finally, I would listen to our business community and implement strategies to help them succeed. Press: What are your ideas for revitalizing downtown? Kitching : A great deal has already been done and those efforts should continue. I favor seeking businesses that can operate in the confined space of downtown. There are some trafrevitalize downtown. Collins the empty store fronts and buildings with businesses that will provide goods and services making Macclenny attractive for people to move here and live here. I would like to see the downtown area be the center of social activity were people can meet, shop, have a cup of coffee and listen to soft music. I envision a gazebo for jazz musicians, games of chess or just relaxing. My vision is based on Cocoa Village in Brevard County or the square in Lake City. Gravelle: I would continue to work my state contacts to help fund a service road from the Wal-Mart Distribution Center to by reducing the heavy semi traffic downtown, as well as bring sev eral hundred if not thousands of jobs to Macclenny. I would also raise awareness of our tourism opportunities and push to open up more opportunities to bring people to our town through advertising our festivals and events in other municipalities to draw people to our com munity. Press: What qualities, skills or characteristics make you the best choice for city commission er? Kitching: I have a history of working as a private citizen with city government in three other cities in two different states to promote successful partnerworking relationship with Macclenny. My life and work are in vested in Macclenny and I plan to stay here. People know me and my character. My work with Macclenny Church of Christ, Baker County School Board, the Chamber of Commerce, the Baker Family YMCA, the Baker County Council on Aging and Action Agency has prepared me to work with the city and all of its citizens. Collins : I have held various positions during my professional career from designing computer software systems, selling precious metal limited edition sports collectibles, working for Homeland Security as a TSA agent and self employment as a licensed community association manager and real estate broker. I have a high degree of integrity and honesty and a reputation as a problem solver I make things happen. I have regularly attended city commission meetings since Februappointed to the City Zoning Adjustment and am the cur rent chairman. I believe I am the best choice for city com missioner.

Page 15 T B C P ursday, August 29, 2013 Page 14 T B C P ursday, August 29, 2013 It was probably a good idea to cancel Fridays Kickoff Classic pre-season football game. With drenching rain, thunder and lightning all around the area, the game could have been a danger. There was an attempt to move it to Ft. White but they werent able to put it together in the short preparation time. So the Cats will open this week at Camden County. Besides the danger of thunder and lightning, the field at Memorial Stadium was a consideration. With days of soaking rain, the field loosens up considerably. Its in good shape for the beginning of the regular season and there was really no reason to risk it in a pre-season game. This wasnt the main concern, but Id be surprised if it wasnt in the conversation. Despite pretty good drainage, the field would have been shredded by a game on a soggy pitch. The cleats would have chewed divots in the sod and grounds crews would have spent Saturday trying to replace them all and hope that they home opener against Bradford. With the weather as iffy as it has been on a day-to-day basis, there is no telling if were in for a lot more soakers. So it was a pretty good decision all around, even though were disappointed about having to wait a week for Wildcat football. wool soccer fan, I am just as big a college football fan and I am very excited that the season kicks off this weekend. The Gators take on Toledo on Saturday and Geor gia starts the season with what may be the marquee game of the weekend as they square off against the Clemson Tigers in Death Valley. Clemson is never an easy team to play, and particularly difficult at home. It should be an early measuring stick to determine how good these two powerhouses really are this year.

The Wildcats were supposed Classic against Ed White at Memorial Stadium, but last weeks playable. The teams tried to move the and security that made it impossible to do so. Ultimately, the game had to be canceled. We didnt want to lose anyone to injury, said head coach Ryan Sulkowski. Its unfortunate for our kids because they couldnt get a trial run through same time it was a blessing because someone may have gone out and gotten hurt. We wouldnt have been able to sleep at night if that was the case. The coaches were going to use the Kick Off Classic as a way before heading into the season. Among those was determining key position battles that have been fought throughout the sum mer. before the start of the season, they will continue through the opening games. Were going to rotate guys, and were going to see over Sulkowski said. We have very capable guys in those positions and were just going to let it play out. Everyone is going to get a fair shake. Although Baker County didnt get the chance to play last week, the cancellation did allow the team to turn its attention to this Fridays regular season opener against Camden County, which is game last Saturday. Baker County has been preparing for the game since then, which gave them an extra couple of days at practice over the reignpions. We can match up at certain positions, the head coach said. If we can hold on to the football and play error free, theres always the chance we can be right there with them. In addition to limiting mistakes, Baker County is going to have to stop Camden Countys rushing attack to have a chance to win. Sophomore Harrison Poole led Camden County with the ground in the teams Week 1 Coach Sulkowski knows his team is going to have to slow down the oppositions ground game in order to be competitive. dont like to do, and were going to try to make you do it, Coach Sulkowski said. Defensively, were hoping to contain. Were going to try to put bodies in the gaps where they like to run and put bodies on the ball. Playing against Georgias team of the decade is only one thing the Baker County boys will game; there is also the intimidation factor of playing against a school much bigger than the one they attend, Coach Sulkowski said. They have double the enroll ment we have at this high school, and double the kids on their roster, Coach Sulkowski said. How our kids come out and perform in that environment will tell us a lot. The kids will get to play in a great environment. I want these kids to experience that and play on the big stage. The head coach said he feels confident about where Baker County can be at the end of the game, but that doesnt necessarily mean winning. He said hes looking for a good performance from the team and wants to see the players execute the way they are capable of doing. Even though it would be great to start off the season with a win, Coach Sulkowski said its not a make or break game. He pointed to last seaat Columbia as an example of how early season losses can be overcome by playing well during district contests. Playing against teams the caliber of Camden County will get the Cats more prepared for the games that matter, Coach Sulkowski said. We know theres seven games on our schedule that are important and determine if we sit at home during the playoffs, the head coach said. Well see if these guys can do what we ask them to do.

As well as the individual players performed, there is still work to do as a team. As a team I thought we played ment, Coach Sulkowski said.
