The Haunted Jail opened the same night to a light crowd, but saw many more visitors the evening of October 26. The Haunted Jail will end this years run on Halloween from 7 to 10 pm.

A Sanderson woman who was at the wheel of a car that struck and killed an 18-monthold child in late January, 2012 was sentenced last week to a year in jail, followed by five years on probation. Valorie Manning Ferdon, 57, entered a no contest plea in circuit court on October 22 to leaving the scene of an accident involving a death. The state dropped related counts of driving without a valid license and violation of a license restriction for sight correction. Autumn Sky Smith was struck by Ms. Ferdons southbound 2001 Honda sedan about 6:25 pm on January 26 on darkened CR 127 north of Sanderson. The child had wandered outside a fenced area and was on the outer portion of the roadway when struck, and the Honda continued southbound. Ms. Ferdon was questioned by deputies a short time later after her vehicle was spotted by a witness as she passed the scene heading north. Judge Mark Moseley banned the defendant from driving during the probationary period and allowed 27 days she was in county jail subtracted from the sentence. Court records reveal that Ms. Ferdons driving record since 1982 is marred by multiple offenses in Duval County, including leaving the scene of an accident, speeding, careless driving, failure to yield and a seat belt violation. The childs grandmother, Cristy Austin, who was caring for the victim when the collision occurred, was disappointed the defendant wont spend time in prison.

This time the clash is not a political one about states rights or slavery, but a cultural one about the appropriateness of a Union monument across from a Confederate soldiers monument and two markers paying tribute to Confederate generals involved in the battle. Some dont want to see a Union monument at the state park, period, while others object to its close proximity to the three existing memorials. At present there is no monument dedicated to Union soldiers at the state park or annual re-enactment takes place. That latter area is federally owned and on the National Register of Historic Places. For the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the fraternal organization seeking the new monument, the project is a long-time coming. The group hopes to place a polished, black granite obelisk standing some 10-to-12 feet tall to honor Union soldiers, including the three black units that fought in the Battle of Olustee.

You remember the incinerator. In early 2012, a Pennsylvania-based company called Integrated Waste Management Systems proposed to build a high-tech incinerator east of Macclenny to burn things like body parts, body tissue and blood plus anything that comes into contact with them. Oh, and the body parts included aborted fetuses. An organization born (pun intended) after the companys plans became public (the length of time it was kept from the public is another unseemly matter) billing itself as No Bio in Baker has also lent its help to an organization with the name you guessed it No Bio in Suwannee. This latest stanza in Integrated Waste Management Systems quest to find a site in north Florida appears to be going the way of the Baker County effort. Its hit a brick wall. According to The Suwannee Democrat, the company withdrew a permit request from the Suwannee River Water Management District on October 16, and the county commission there on October 22 sent a letter to IWMS lobbyist Alberta Hipps of Jacksonville declaring its lack of support of the project due to the public outcry. An anti-incinerator rally in downtown Live Oak drew a respectable crowd and another one was held last weekend in Branford. Among the check-list of reasons to deny the proposal is the fact that the firm has no experience with similar projects, and thus cannot say with certainty that the incinerator will not result in harmful environmental effects. Theres a possibility that IWMS will re-apply for permitting in another location outside of the initial site inside Suwannees version of Baker Countys industrial Enterprise zones, but that will likely reenergize the No Bio in Suwannee crowd and put the onus back on the county board. As we saw here, nothing makes a public body squirm more than a meeting room packed with angry citizens. So, this latest effort by IWMS is a reprise of the 2012 one here, with marked similarities. And thus it begs the question where is the suitable place for a bio-waste incinerator? A few years back, companies like IWMS could be excused for assuming rural counties like Baker and Suwannee off an interstate highway would be ideal for commercial uses like this. They need improved tax bases, more jobs and the lower population density presents more options for siting it away from neighborhoods. No more. In fact, IWMS could shift its aim to even more sparsely populated counties like Levy and Dixie and it would likely get the same blow back from people who live there because they appreciate the lack of potential environmental hazards and want to keep it that way. And if they did find a suitable site in northeast or north central Florida, why wouldnt citizens of neighboring downwind counties raise a howl of protest? So, maybe the dilemma for companies like IWMS isnt the inability to find a place to put their incinerator, but rather that they may be in the wrong business. I took a week off last week from writing as we got ready to move Sara Beth to the Shep herd Center in Atlanta for therapy after her car accident. She will probably be here for some time so were all switching off staying with her. This is my week. Im back on track with my humor column after a quick update for the many people whove been tremendously supportive of her. She is mov ing about with a wheelchair and walker and though she has traumatic brain amnesia, she reads as well as before the accident and can even sing harmony. The Atlanta Marathon is going on below Saras window. Whistles blowing, crowds cheering and having a great time as the runners struggle uphill in front of the Shepherd Center. Very apropos to what we are going through. An uphill marathon with plenty of people cheering her on and praying for her. Were not quitting till we get to the finish line! That said, theres been a lot of stuff going on in the world while Ive been gone. As I sit here, Im watching coverage of the latest snafu in government. It seems that the National Security Agency spied on the phone conversations of 30 foreign officials in Brazil, Mexico, Germany, France and monitored over 60 million phone messages in Spain. I find that rather shocking. Not because the NSA is spying on anybody, but because they were able to make any kind of sense out of anything having to do with cell phones. I recently tried to get a straight answer from my cell phone carrier about some thing on my bill. Three hours later I discovered that the only way I could get an answer about the unknown charge on page three of my bill was if I upped my coverage and upgraded my phone and tied it into a two year plan. I wouldnt be the least surprised if on Friday truck after truck from T-Mobile, ATT, Verizon and Sprint pull up to the NSA headquarters in Washington, D.C. and start unloading 60 million iPhone 5s along with contracts tying the government to Unlimited Family Plans until 2065. for the Affordable Care Plan read Obamacare crashed because too many people were trying to sign up. The people who run the website said that they were surprised by the volume. Hmm. There are 40 million Americans without health care and they need to sign up on this website. Surprised by the volume? Double hmm. Millions of people can play Farmville on Facebook every day and the darned thing never crashes. Maybe the healthcare website should be run like Farmville. In Farmville, you start with an empty farm and pay virtual coins to plow land and plant crops. In Obamacareville, people start with no healthcare and pay coins to buy basic coverage. In Farmville you can pay more money to build a barn or a grain silo. In Obamacareville you pay more money for disability coverage or cancer care. In Farmville, you constantly get requests from other players to give them gifts. Obamacareville is just the opposite. In Obamacare ville, you constantly get requests from Fox News commentators to scrap the whole thing and start playing Tea Party. Saudi Arabia. It was the first day that women were able to drive cars. Up until then, only men drove. That is very significant for one reason. It means that on Sunday, Saudi Arabia was treated to the first woman driver jokes. information that dont exactly fit into any category. I had to drive over the Isaiah Hart Bridge the other day and wondered who Isaiah Hart was, since half of Jacksonville has to take the bridge while the Matthews Bridge is being repaired. It turns out that he was the man who started Jacksonville, a plantation owner who rebelled against Spanish rule in 1812. After Florida was sold to the US in 1815, he started the city and named it after Andrew Jackson. He built a city park in the center which was renamed Hemming Plaza 75 years later after Charles Hemming, a Civil War veteran who had a large Confederate monument erected in the park. Duval County is named for William Pope DuVal, the first governor of the territory of Florida in 1822. Someone else I ran across was Lemuel Lem Turner. He was a boat builder and industrialist and a very scary looking guy who built a ferry across the Trout River.

ursday, October 31, 2013 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, October 31, 2013 JOEL ADDINGT ON N EWS EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.comNearly 13 years ago Jonathan Levister of Macclenny was shot in the head. Today, after numerous surgeries, his left side is hobbled, making standing and walking a struggle. Life for the Baker Manor Apartments resident, as well as his mother and in-home nurse, would be much easier if the family occupied a downstairs apartment. When Mr. Levister and his mom, Melissa Suggs, moved into an upstairs unit at the government-subsidized housing complex on South 6th Street, they knew about the waiting list for years later, theyre tired of waiting. By the time hes down the stairs, hes ready to fall out, said Ms. Suggs, whos frustrated she cannot offer her son, whose wheelchair stays downstairs with their vehicle, more mobility and a better lifestyle. I just want him to be able to go with me. Its sad when I want to go to church or the park, but hes like Mom, I dont want to go through it, she said. Hes even missed doctor appointments due to his mobility challenges, said Ms. Suggs. Both the son and mother are unemployed and on disability. Shes a cancer survivor and more recently injured her back helping Mr. Levister one day in the bathroom. When asked about his daily routine, the young man, 23, shrugged his shoulders from his recliner in the living room. hunting shows and stuff like that, or movies. Or I sit on the front porch, he said. As far as going off any where, its really hard to get down those steps. Mr. Levisters father left the family in 1995 and they moved here from Jacksonville to be closer to family. Ms. Suggs said they began apartment waiting list, then moved up to number four when someone vacated a downstairs apartment. But then, she said, they were pushed back to numof such apartments have been emptied during their time there, though shes not moving up the list. Horizon Housing Management of Oviedo, FL manages the 50-unit complex built in 1972. Its age makes it largely exempt from laws regarding handicap accessibility. Were exempt from almost all the rules, said the companys vice president Pedro Vermales, adding that some disability improvements have been made at Baker Manor, including side walk ramps for those in wheelchairs. He disputes that Ms. Suggs has moved up or down on the waiting list at Baker Manor. waiting list, said Mr. Vermales. I dont know where she got that from ... We dont jump the wait ing list. Its audited on an annual basis by HUD [US Department of Housing and Urban Develop ment]. We dont remove anybody or delete names, either. He said there are 3-4 handi cap residents at Baker Manor plus 4-5 who are disabled due to their advanced age, but that its almost impossible to make exceptions based on one handicap versus another. According to Mr. Vermales, its not unusual for residents to unit. He declined to supply copies of the waiting list, citing resident privacy concerns. No I cant provide the documents, but she [Ms. Suggs] did not move to number four, said Mr. Vermales. Anyone with public housing problems can file complaints with HUD by visiting www.hud. gov/complaints or by calling 1-800-685-8470, the agencys multi-family (apartment or duplex) complaint line. of the Sons of Union Veterans and president of the commission managing the monument effort, which began in 2011, describes the proposal as modest and said it would not eclipse the larger white granite monument to Confederate soldiers, originally erected in 1912 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and rededicated last year. The 1912 monument will remain the principal feature of that location, said Mr. Monroe, a black man and retired attorney. The design of the proposed Union monument is based on a similar one in Tarpon Springs, FL. The color will be different from the others, but we felt it would represent the soldiers that fought and died on the part of the Union, Mr. Monroe said, adding that the dark color was not racially motivated. We wanted it to be distinctive and have something that would hold its appearance to the weather. We wanted to put something up that would stand the test of time. The State of Florida, includ ing the Florida Parks Service and its parent agency the Florida De partment of Environmental Protection, approved the monument and selected the proposed location. Its planned to be across from the United Daughters of Confederacy (UDC) monument and midway between the two Con federate general markers, but further to the south. The layout would create a rectangular space with monuments on all four sides. Mr. Monroe said the Sons of Union Veterans believes the proposed monument will add balance to the tributes already present at the site. Today the only references to Union soldiers at Olustee Batfound on the inscription on the UDC monument. They note the both sides 5000 Confederate troops and 6000 federal troops and the number of casualties 2000 from the Union side and less than 1000 from the Confederate side. Some might consider that more of a boast than a respectful recognition of their (Union solroe, who also called the battle a great Confederate victory. But as word spread about the states approval of the monument earlier this year, letters and e-mails came pouring in to the state leaders, including the parks service, legislators and the governor. They want it within the exument is placed, wrote one e-mailer to a state historic presfeel the design and color of the marker is not in keeping with the monuments already in place. It has been 64 years since a monument has been placed within Olustee Battlefield State Park. While we realize the Sons of Union Veterans have a right for a memorial because their ancestors fought and died for their be liefs too, we do not feel it should be in the very same location of the UDC monument. Another e-mailer objected to the monuments presence anywhere at the state park. The express purpose of this site is to honor the veterans of Florida and her allies in defending Florida from invasion, wrote Lunelle Siegel of Tampa. And again, years later, when Florida applied for the site to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the purpose was defending Florida from the in vading forces. Larry Rosenblatt of Macclenny, a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, said hes not opposed to the monument in general, but he doesnt believe it should be located near the other monuments. Its something that we felt like was completely out of place, he said in a recent interview with The Lake City Reporter. It really will look bad on the Union soldiers because it will be sitting cannons with General Finnegans and General Colquitts monuments directly behind it and the large UDC monument directly behind that. Given the resistance to the planned Union monument, the comments from various groups and individuals involved in the annual battle re-enactment, including the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the UDC and the Olustee Citizen Support Organization, which is planning to build a new museum at the state park (see related story). Martha Robinson, communications manager for the Florida Parks Service, said the feedback spanned from those in favor of the project, to those completely opposed or simply opposed to the planned location. Those comments as well as the enabling legislation and original intent for the park and its management plan are being evaluatdetermination on the monument. Well look at all those things to see if its consistent with the telling of the story of what hap pened at that location ... We will not omit a piece of history, said Ms. Robinson. Well look at the whole story of Olustee and what is consistent with the use of the property and what happened there. She said the states goal is to 150th anniversary of the battle in February, 2014. Were not trying to drag our feet, but we want to give everyone a chance to comment, Ms. Robinson said, adding theyve received quite a few letters at this point. The Sons of Union Veterans have halted activities related to the proposed monument until the state makes its determination, Mr. Monroe said. He said if the states previous approval stands, the monument would be erected in short order. Mr. Monroe said funding com mitments are in place for the project, which is estimated to cost less than $12,000, depending on the size. Thats the least of our concerns, he said. But if the state should insist on siting the monument else where, the design could change as a result. Were willing to move it to another location for a reasonable or logical reason, but that may increase the scale or add some other features since it would have to serve as an attraction in its own right, Mr. Monroe said. Were not going to refight the war. Thats done, he said.

She said assistant state attor ney Ralph Yazdiya believed the states case against Ms. Ferdon was too weak to push for more than a year in jail, the maximum period for incarceration locally. In other sentencings that day, Travis Tyson, 35, of Macclenny will return to prison for 21 months for child neglect and possession of drugs without a prescription. Mr. Tyson and his wife were arrested in July of this year on the roadway near their residence on Ben Rowe Circle in apparent drug-induced catatonic states.

Seeks to be groundedMIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF A special magistrate charged with mediating a dispute between Oldcastle Southern Group and the county commission over the issue of sand mining suspended the procedings on the afternoon of October 29 with an order given to both sides. Oldcastle will have 20 days to prepare a new mining proposal to be submitted to the county, after which the county will have 10 days to decide if its something they could support. If not, an impasse would be declared and the two sides could be on their way to court. Oldcastle attorneys have stated that a lawsuit would be the next legal challenge to the countys de nial of a mining permit. The mediation hearing was held behind closed doors in two separate conference rooms one reserved for Oldcastle attorneys and the other for county attorneys and other officials on the second began at 9 am and ended shortly before 2 p.m. The special magistrate, a South Florida lawyer apmet with each side to discuss their respective positions and acted as an intermediary between the two camps. Rich Komando, Baker Countys new attorney, said later in the afternoon that the countys position had been clearly stated: Sand mining is not favored in Baker County. However, he said the mediator, Fort Lauderdale attorney Samuel S. Goren, urged the two sides to strive to resolve their differences and try to reach a settlement without resorting to litigation. The mediator worked hard to get us (the county and Oldcastle) to come to a compromise, Mr. Komando said, adding that Oldcastle was given 20 days to present a new mining proposal to the county. After evaluating the new proposal, he said, if cation an impasse would be declared. At that point, it would be up to Oldcastle to decide what the companys next step would be, which likely would be a lawsuit. Commission Chairman Mark Hartley, who was appointed to represent the county at the mediation hearing, said hes open to reading the companys alternative mining proposal, but he doesnt expect it will be something he, personally, would support. The events leading up to this weeks hearing began in July when the county commission voted 4-1 to deny an application for a special zoning exception to allow Oldcastle to extract coarse sand from hundreds of acres off SR 228 in an area zoned agriculture where duPont has been mining titanium for years. what is termed a Request for Relief under the Florida Environmental and Land Use Dispute Resolution Act, a state law that provides for court-ordered mediation and arbitration in an effort to avoid lawsuits. Oldcastle Southern Group, part of a multi-nation al construction conglomerate headquartered in Ireland, was represented at the hearing by one of the its stationery as Floridas Law Firm for Business. Providing legal representation for the county, in addition to Mr. Komando, was Rob Bradley, a state senator and managing partner of the Orange Park yers, was recently hired as general counsel for Baker County after veteran county attorney Terry Brown resigned. The Oldcastle mining proposal had been in the works for more than a year when the issue became the subject of an intense public hearing that lasted audience in attendance the meeting was held in a cast a vote on the issue: 4-1 against, blocking Oldcastles plans to mine coarse sand from the Trail Ridge formation in the southeastern county a few miles south of Interstate 10. County Commissioner Adam Giddens cast the only vote in support of the companys mining proposal, saying he thought it would provide a boost to the local economy. Oldcastle had a contract to buy about 437 acres from duPont and had followed zoning code requirements by seeking an exception to permit mining in an agricultural zone. But the commissions vote sidetracked those plans, despite recommendations of approval from the countys Land Planning Agency, which reviews zoning and development plans. County Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston also had told commissioners that the mining application met all the criteria in the countys comprehensive plan and land development regulations. Oldcastle attorneys used the LPAs recommendation and Mr. Prestons comments to bolster their case in the request for relief. The Application and Oldcastles presentation of evidence to the Board of County Commissioners lief petition read. This was supported by the County staff who submitted staff report and testimony that the Application met the applicable standards. Indeed, Oldcastle and the County staffs evidence was the only competent substantial evidence at the Hearing. Instead of basing their vote on evidence, Oldcastle lawyers claimed, commissioners abdicated their duty to adhere to the requirements of law for per ceived political expediency. After dozens of people spoke during the July hear ing and it became time for the commission to vote on the issue, Commissioner James Croft introduced the motion to reject Oldcastles application because he said the proposed mining would not be advantageous to our community and would not promote the general welfare. He and three fellow commissioners agreed that the proposed mine nearly as much as Oldcastle that mining would not harm the environment and that economic development would result from their plans to build a pipeline along SR 228 to transport reclaimed city wastewater for use in the mining operation. Concerns voiced by critics have largely focused on fears that the proposed mining would adversely impact the Floridan Aquifer, wetlands and local wells. Oldcastle attorneys indicated in the request for reproper denial of the application beyond the mediation hearing, if necessary. 2nd oor is dicult for her son e mediator worked hard to get us to come to a compromise.

The verdict came after a two-week tri al at the Baker County courthouse during which the jury heard voluminous testimony about debilitating injuries to Darrin Whitaslammed into a GMC Yukon SUV driven by Nelli Wilford as she turned into a private driveway early that afternoon. It is the largest single jury award of its kind in Baker Countys history. The nearly 10 days of testimony before the jury deliberated the afternoon of October 18 included technical reconstruction of the accident scene just west of CR 125. Mr. Whitaker, 39, was eastbound on Mud Lake (CR 130) and Ms. Wilford westbound about 12:30 pm when she steered the SUV north toward the driveway, causing Mr. Whitaker to lose control of the motorcycle as he attempted to avoid a collision. He struck the right rear of the Yukon. Neither Ms. Wilford nor three young passengers were injured, and the Florida Highway Patrol charged her with making an improper turn. Both Mr. Whitaker and co-plaintiff Sarah Whitaker, his wife, took the stand during the trial, as did Ms. Wilford, who said she did not see the oncoming motorcycle when she began the turn. ing that the plaintiff, who is also a former county deputy sheriff, will be unable to resume his former job with the Florida Wildlife He is unable to walk without the assistance of canes, and the collision resulted in substantial internal injuries that further impair Mr. Whitakers ability to assume activity anywhere near the pre-accident level, argued his counsel Michael Moran of Jacksonville. Ms. Wilford and her husband co-defendant Stephen Wilford, both of Macclenny, were represented by William Stone, also of Jack sonville. Mr. Stone said this week it would be inappropriate to comment on the outcome pending exploration of appeal options. The jury got it right, commented Mr. Moran in a telephone interview this week. When they saw the videos of Darrin at the Shepherd Center (a rehab hospital in Atlanta) and saw how hard he worked to get where he is now I think it really affected them. Initially, the doctors told him he would never walk again. The case now moves to another chapter the defendants insurance company, Florida Farm Bureau. Mr. Moran explained that the insurer was not named as a co-defendant pursuant to a Florida statute that bans inclusion on the basis that juries might be tempted to award deep pocket damages rather than on the basis of facts surrounding a personal injury case. In fact, the plaintiffs counsel said mention of an insurance connection in such trials is Dispositions in county court before Judge Joey Williams on October 23 included: drivers license; two days in jail, six-month probation and obtain valid license. a suspended license; two days in jail, six-month probation, 25 hours community service, attend license school and obtain valid license. drivers license; failed to appear warrant issued. posure and resisting arrest without violence; 32 days in jail. sion of drug paraphernalia and petty theft; three days in jail, sixmonth probation, alcohol abuse evaluation and attend AA as directed, no alcohol or drug use. ing arrest without violence; two days in jail, six-month probation, 50 hours community service and anger management counseling. of pre-trial release; 49 days in jail. failed to appear warrant issued. suspended license; 56 days in jail. resisting arrest without violence and disorderly intoxication; failed to appear warrant issued. suspended license; six-month probation, attend license school and obtain valid license. two days in jail, six-month probation, no alcohol or non-prescribed drugs, hold sign for two hours. and resisting merchant; 51 days in jail, six month probation, attend theft class, hold sign for two hours. reckless driving; four days in jail and pay $27.50 cost of investigation. tery and driving on suspended license; 65 days in jail, 12-month probation, 50 hours community service, batterer intervention school, pay $134 cost of investigation. ly intoxication; pay court costs. of domestic violence injunction; 180 days in jail and court costs.Jury: $9.4M for accident injuriesArrested aer suspected dealAdult classes in basic computers, money managingAre you an adult who is secretly ashamed that you are computer illiterate?

The contests 13-and-under age division drew the most entries with 51. First place in the division went to Ms. Baitys poem about the classic Halloween characters of legend monsters, werewolves, witches, vampires and zombies. I just love to write and when I heard the contest was a poem I was really excited, said the youth. After a bout with writers block, Ms. Baity called on her love of all things Halloween, her favorite holiday, to pen her poem. She just loves all the spooky stuff, said her mother Sharon. She doesnt like the frilly stuff, like the princesses, but shes always smiling and happy on Halloween. It was only two years ago that Kaylee returned to school following treatment for a brain tumor that kept her out of standard schooling for three grades. Her mom said Kaylees math skills suffered some from the disease but not her reading or writing. I like being able to make up my own story and write songs to put my feelings into words and onto paper, said Kaylee. Caden Yarboroughs poem about a youngster scared momentarily by his pet beagle Harry was judged second in the division by The Press staff, while Blaine Roberts, 11, received third place for a colorful entry describing an busy night of trick-or-treating. Ms. Grays vivid poem in the 14-to-18 age division depicted a prising and terrifying ending. The high school senior with Florida Virtual School said she learned in creative writing classes to think outside the box. So rather than draft a poem about more typical Halloween subjects like haunted houses or trick-or-treating, she said she drew her inspiration from an episode of the TV show Criminal Minds in which a girl witnesses some horrible things on Halloween. Writing is a big passion of mine, said Ms. Gray, whos won other writing contests as well. Though she says writing is a hobby, the teen hopes to study international business in college. Star Spence, 14, won second place in the 14-to-18 division for Dont Be Afraid. Its a stirring poem about a detached youngster who cant fall asleep because hes hearing things that turn out to be his own cries, a realization that shatters his existence. Third place in the division went to Kylie Gabbard, 14, for a very descriptive piece about The Moon. Ms. Bagley, an 11th grade English teacher at the high school, er division with a poem contrasting the Halloween night experiences of a mother and her child titled Oh, To Be a Child at Halloween. She initially planned to write a poem centered on Halloween conversation with her daughter about her grandchildren and how they were preparing for Halloween, she said she chose to write a poem highlighting a parents per spective of the holiday. Only two entries were submitted for the adult category, with Beverly Levines poem, Poison Ivy Blues, about a child stuck home for Halloween whose sister collects candy in her stead, winning second.

He didnt see me through the lace bed skirt. But I saw him and her. The liquid that owed from her head pooled on the wooden oor. He had taken her away. I wiped the saline from my eyes. Slithering to the maroon uid I swirled my nger; watched it drip o. Then I slipped it into my mouth. The door opened; He stared at me, With her blood Crusted to the corners Of my mouth; He ran. Cassidy Gray18 & Over Winner Oh, To Be a Child at HalloweenChild eyes the costumes that might inspire fear. While mother foresees laundry stained with makeup smears. Child seeks adventure on this special night While mother fears danger as he wanders from sight. Child counts goodies as the bag overlls While mother computes the dentist and doctor bills. Child hears screaming and giggles with delight While mothers heart is suddenly pounding with fright. Child cuddles up in his bed with a smile While mother massages her tired feet for a while. Child dreams of what next year may have in store. While mother wishes to be a child just once more.

My son Dylan, a UF grad, was wearing one of his many UF tshirts when Sara Beths occupational therapist Jasmine came in wearing a UF nursing jacket. Immediately, it was old home week and they started glorying in past Gator victories and bemoaning this season. I have noticed this about the Gator Nation, and particular those citizens who absolutely bleed Orange and Blue. No matter what their outlook on the world in general, when discussing Gator football the glass is always half empty. No matter who the Gators are playing that week, be it Vanderbilt, Central Michigan or mighty Alabama, the prognosis is always the same They are going to beat us like dogs. If you believe a true blue Ga tor fan, they have not had a good team in decades and even the national title teams of Danny Wuerffel and Urban Meyer were complete and total flukes. How could the Gators possibly have won a national championship with Chris Leak at quarterback? They wont win another game with Will Muschamp as coach. When I hear all this I shake my head in dismay. Perhaps talking about the Gators is like talking about your car. If you compliment your car you are guaranteed to have something go wrong with it within a week. If you compliment the Gators, they are going to lose. As a Seminole fan, I only sort of understand that line of thinking. I relish the fact that we are doing so well and that our quarterback is a Heisman candidate. Im also realistic enough to know that with Miami and Florida on the schedule, the chances of an undefeated season are dicey. But do I think that they are going to be blown out by the Idaho Vandals? Come on, really? Not so, true Gator fans, who anticipate a blow out at the hands of Georgia Southern, not to mention, Georgia, South Carolina and Vandy. So, if I were to believe Dylan and Jasmine, this has been a winless season and prospects of another Gator victory might be somewhere in 2018. Maybe.JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS cross country team had two runners qualify for regionals and one runner come one second away from qualifying at the District 3-2A meet October 26. well enough at districts to advance to the regional meet November 2 at Alligator Lake in Lake City. time of 19:22, which shattered his previous personal best by 53 secregional meet as she came in 16th among the girls with a time of 25:27.

Wide receiver Mike Boones Wildcats to the blowout win. Four of his scores came in the yards and punt returns of 45 and 82 yards. He added a 78-yard touchdown reception on a slant from freshman quarterback Joe Green in the third quarter. The young quarterback had start despite a slow opening few minutes. Green threw an inter ception on the teams second possession when the offense had the ball deep in Stanton territory after defensive lineman Casen Noles jumped on a fumble caused by defensive end CeCe Jefferson. The interception led to the Blue Devils first score of the night and had the Wildcats trailing 7-0 early. Green quickly settled down and led the offense on a scor ing drive on their next possestouchdown of the night to close the score to a one-point game. Green managed the game well and threw for two second-half touchdowns the 78-yard pass to Boone and an 8-yard throw to Brandon Miller and rushed for another on a 4-yard run. Although the Wildcat defense allowed the most points the unit has given up since the opening week loss to Camden County, they were able to stop Stantons offense when necessary. Jeffersons impressive performance led the defense. The junior recorded three of the teams ception for a touchdown in the a lead they would never relinquish. Baker County led 56-27 midway through the fourth quarter when head coach Ryan Sulkowski began playing the second team. Backup quarterback Owen Register capped off the teams scoring with a 2-yard touchdown run with less than three minutes at 62-27. Now the Wildcats turn their attention to a must-win situation November 1 against the undefeated Bishop Kenny Crusaders (7-0, 6-0) in a game that will sort out the jumbled district standings and determine both teams playoff futures. Baker County can win its second straight District 3-5A title if the team beats Bishop Kenny and Ribault loses to Wolfson. But that scenario likely wont happen as Ribault (6-2, 5-1) should be able to easily handle the Wolfpack (2-6, 2-4). The expected Ribault victory leaves another more complicated scenario for the Wildcats to win the district. If both Baker County and Ribault win, then there will be a three-way tie including Bishop Kenny at the top of the district. A three-way tie would lead to a district tiebreaker November 4 featuring all three teams, which would be held at Bishop Kenny due to the Crusaders having the best overall record. The Wildcats 12-minute quarter to determine who will play Bishop Kenny. If Baker County can move past Ribault in the tiebreaker, then it would guarantee a playoff berth for the Wildcats. The squad would then play the Crusaders in another 12-minute quarter to de termine the district champions. If Baker County defeats the Crusaders in the second tiebreaker, then Bishop Kenny and Ribault would play each other to be the district runner-up to earn a playoff spot. However, if the Wildcats lose to Ribault in the tiebreaker, they will need the Trojans to defeat the Crusaders in the second tie breaker game. Baker County would then have a shot at being the district runner-up and capture a playoff spot with a win against Bishop Kenny. But all of the possible scenarios will be moot if the team loses at Bishop Kenny on Friday night; a loss means the Wildcats will be watching the playoffs from home. The Wildcats will be looking to replicate last seasons district a 49-35 win at Bishop Kenny to capture the crown. Baker County will also be trying to get revenge on the Crusaders after Bishop Kenny eliminated the Wildcats from the playoffs The two teams are evenly matched on paper heading into Fridays showdown. The game pits the Crusaders high-powered offense, which leads the district with 243 points, against a Baker County defense that has allowed a district-low 63 points. The Wildcat offense has scored the second-most points in district play (215), while Bishop JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comThe BCMS Bobcats capped off their perfect 8-0 season by capturing the Florida Crown Conference title with a 34-6 victory over at Suwannee County on October 24. The conference champions became the third undefeated team in school history and just the second team in 20 years to win the FCC with an unbeaten record. The Bobcats dominated the competition all season with an average margin of victory of more than four touchdowns. This group is just remarkable, Head Coach Rock Rhoden said. I dont want to sound thinking any team could play with us. The players felt the same way. championship game was lopsided, Suwannee kept the game County held onto a 14-6 halftime lead. The Bobcats jumped out to a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. The offense got rolling early, but mistakes plagued the unit on its opening drive. Curtis Harmon had two touchdown runs of 48 and 44-yards called back due to penalties. The penalties only delayed the inevitable as David Smith scored from 3-yards out to cap off a long 12-play opening drive. Josh Haygood extended the teams lead in the second quarter with a powerful 42-yard burst up the middle where he broke free of three tacklers en route to the end zone. The Bobcats looked to be rolling to another easy win until the Facing a fourth down from Baker Countys 42-yard line, Suwannee connected on a beautiful touchdown pass that slipped through a Bobcats defenders hands to close the score to 14-6 with 11.1 seconds remaining in the half. I was never concerned, Coach Rhoden said. Losing never crossed my mind. The third and fourth quarters with this team were unbelievable with the way they were able to dominate. Baker County took control of the game in the second half with 20 unanswered points, including two touchdowns from Savoy Jefferson in the opening three minutes of the third quarter. Jefferson scored his first touchdown by outracing the defense on a 60-yard touchdown run on the Bobcats third play of the half. The defense stepped up with its only turnover of the game when Jamon Jones picked off a sive play of the half. Jefferson capitalized on the opportunity three plays later with a 12-yard touchdown run. After having two touchdowns Harmon finally found the end zone late in the fourth quarter when he was on the receiving end of a 40-yard pass from Smith to widen the teams lead to 34-6. As the seconds began to tick down on the Bobcats championship win, Coach Rock Rhoden received a celebratory Gatorade bath from the players, much to the delight of the Baker County faithful. The Bobcats and the fans celgame as the players hoisted the Florida Crown Conference trophy above their heads. Ive never seen a community or school support a team like they have this year, Coach Rhoden said. People have gone out of their way to support these men. Its a big win, and it just shows that when everybody rallies behind a group of kids then great things can happen.
