Phillip Bennett, 25, who has a felony conviction record for drug and property crimes, was jailed that morning after an investigation that began when Travis Johnston, 25, went to the Fraser Hospital emergency room about 5 am seeking treatment for deep lacerations on his hands and arms. Deputy Daryl Mobley said it was initially thought that Mr. Bennett stabbed Mr. Johnston at the formers address on Sunshine Lane. Latthe cuts attempting to strike Mr. Bennett with a coffee cup. When deputies went to the address to question Mr. Bennett, they found the interior blood-stained but no suspect. Deputy Mobley said Mr. Bennett and girlfriend Birtney McEachin, 20, also of Sanderson, turned up at a hospital in Union County that morning and were held by authorities there for questioning. A warrant was obtained after the initial search for possible injured occupants at the Bennett house revealed ingredients for manufacturing meth, a small amount of the drug, a baggie of marijuana and other paraphernalia. Both Mr. Johnston and witness Thomas Braddy told Deputy Mobley that Mr. Bennett had a pistol in his hand when they went to the residence in the early morning hours, ostensibly to pick up a dog. Mr. Johnston and Mr. Bennett then argued about money, police were told, and the injured visitor was ordered at gunpoint to leave.

JOEL ADDINGT ON NEWS EDIT OR firstname.lastname@example.orgA foundation founded by a Civil War buff and trucking company owner has ponied up $1 million for a new museum State Park. The new facility is being planned by the battlefields Citizen Support Organization with oversight from the Florida Parks Service. It will feature interactive exhibits as well as new exhibits arriving periodically to keep the public coming back, said CSO president Gary Dick inson of Jacksonville. He said the group toured a number of museums or interpretive centers within the regional state park system to research the best ways to display items to encourage interaction. That way, he said, people can feel like they are more a part of the exhibit than if they were just sitting there looking at stuff. We like some of the new technology, Mr. Dickinson said. The project is currently in the design phase. The museum building will resemble a cracker-style house to match the time period of the Olustee Battle in 1864, the largest Civil War conflict in the state involving more than 10,000 soldiers. The location will be generally where the park rangers residence sits today. He [the ranger] is retiring, and the house has some age on it, but we may be able to utilize the existing building on the back side of the museum, said Mr. Dickinson, who works with community affairs division. He said design concepts are still being mulled as well as ideas for exhibits. My vision is I dont want a museum that sits there the same year after year, he said. I want it to change and be vibrant. Portions may remain intact, but I want someone who comes one year to come back the next year to see different things. Civil War memorabilia collectors or traveling exhibits seums space with fresh items. Macclennys Dickie Ferry, a avid collector, has agreed to supply items for the opening exhibit. Its Floridas largest battle and its very easy to get off the interstate, so wed like to have something thats a draw, more than just the February time frame, but all year, Mr. Dickinson said. The foundation pledging $1 million to the project, the HTR Foundation, was started by the late Arthur Copeland Hill, the owner of the Hill Truck Rental. As a young trucker, Mr. Dickinson said, Mr. Hill would stop and study Civil War batthe end of his life, he set up the Theres other monies available and we hope to continue to receive grants to expand other for folks, whether theyre coming to walk the grounds or see the museum. We want them to have a great experience when they go out there. The Olustee Battlefield JOEL ADDINGT ON NEWS EDIT OR email@example.comState Representative Elizabeth Porter of Lake City declared last week that the proposed memorial to Union soldiers at Olusbe located near the existing Confederate memorials. That is not going to happen, said Mrs. Porter during the annual legislative delegation meeting held on Halloween at the county commissions chambers in Macclenny. The Repub lican legislator said she initially supported the project placing a 10-to-12 foot tall black granite obelisk across from the larger and older white granite Confederate monument and midway between two other monuments of the same material dedicated to a pair of Confederate generals at the state park in west Baker County. The monument is sought by the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War to honor the Union soldiers who fought during the battle, including those from three ning the effort back in 2011. The Sons of Union Veterans approached Mrs. Porters add some balance to the monuments already at the park. Today there are three Confederate monuments at the state park and a Union grave memorial about 500 feet west of the state park on whats believed to be federal property. They said theres monuments for Confederate veterans, but no monument for Union veterans, so we would like to put one up, do you have a problem with that? My reply was, no, I dont see a problem with that. We can direct you to the right people, said Mrs. Porter. But an outcry from those either opposed to the monument or its placement in close proximity to the Confederate tributes has caused the legislator to see the project in a new light. The biggest complaint Ive heard about the monument has mostly been the placement of it in between the two general monuments and the cannons, and in front of the large monument that already exists there thats out, she said emphatically.Porter: No to Union obelisk at park Rep.

I found during research of the original deed that the land was donated in 1909 for the Olustee Monument. The money for the Olustee Monument was raised by the Florida Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy to honor those killed in defense of Florida and its importance to the Confederacy. 1949 when the Florida Board of Parks and Historic Memorials asIn the 1990s the Union Army, District of Florida, raised the monies to erect a monument to honor the Union soldiers who fought at Olustee. This monument is in the cemetery across the railroad track adjacent to the USFS land and was dedicated on June 2, 1991. The Union monument is in place of a wooden one that was erected in 1866. It is soldiers of the United States Army who fell in the Battle of Olustee, February 20, 1864. It is my understanding that many black cemeteries rose up around areas where Union troops are/were buried. A passenger on a train recalled that the wooden cross erected over the site of the mass grave. Quite a bit of research went into the placement of this monument in the cemetery; in fact it is known as the Monument Cemetery. I was there the day the footer was dug for the monument and the men digging the footer stated that there was indeed a grave there based on the color of the soil, which changes where bodies are buried. but thanks to Jeff Grezlak and the Union Army District of Florida, a monument to the Union casualties at Olustee already exists. So whats the point in building another one and having funds spent that are really unnecessary. If the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War have to spend money at Olustee, let them donate it for items for display in the planned new museum. There money would be a welcome addition and be recognized for whatever they wish (of course, approved). There should be no hard feelings on this matter from anyone, and everyone needs to work together to help with the new museum as the CSO is laying the foundation. Maybe the Union monument that already exists should be utilized more than one day a year and I know for a fact that not all of the Union troops who are part of the annual reenactment do not attend the services held at the monument each year. Maybe the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War could enhance or add to the existing monument to honor not only those who died at Olustee but also those who fought at Olustee. Many of us consider the area where the Confederate monument exists to be hallowed ground. And the area of the existing Union monument is also hallowed ground. Maybe, not everyone realizes that there is already an existing Union Monument at Olustee, because it is not on the Parade Groundbut on the site believed to be the mass grave of the Union troops. It is listed in all the programs for the reenactment and the Union Troops do have a yearly ceremony there. It would be a sacrilege to the memory of all the little old ladies who helped raise the funds for the Confederate monument and to all of those who died at Olustee, both Union and Confederate, to split hairs over something so wrong to place another monument in the shadow of the Confederate monument. Those who are wanting to add another Union monument should step back, think, and look at what already exists and does not need to be duplicated. Cultural balance already exists at Olustee. There are many of us who work so hard to make the Olustee Reenactment a premier event and to build Floridas Civil War Museum at Olustee. Too much time has been put forth on this issue and we all should work together with our main focus being the new museum and that we can achieve a cultural balance within it.Mitzi Nelson Macclenny Dear Editor:Thanks to Commissioner at mediation and upholding the decision he and the majority of the board made in denying Oldcastles application for a special exception to mine sand in Baker County. So now Oldcastle has to submit a new plan to the com mission for review. How many new plans have they already submitted? I think they are out of ideas. What else can they possibly manufacture? Oldcastles attorney has threatened that if all attempts for approval to mine fail that us. What happened to being a good corporate citizen? What happened to being a good neighbor? What happened to [lobbyist] Elizabeth Revelle running all over town spreading money, good cheer and making empty promises? Theyre now going to threatindeed! Bullying and threatening their way in just goes to show what their true character was all along. Corporate greed is what this is all about and they will do anything to attain it. Lets not be fooled by the smoky veil of false friendship. I read with disgust and contempt a recent article in the Hometown Journal in which Ms. Revelle stated that our commissioners voted on the special exception based on emotions and not facts. Maybe Ms. Revelle needs to go back and review the minutes from that hearing and educate herself on what the real truth is. Commissioner James Croft made a motion to turn down the special exception applica tion based on facts that are certainly sustainable by law and are within our countys comprehensive land use plan. Mr. Croft in his motion to deny stated that there were unan swered questions by Oldcastle, uncertainty of taxes to be paid by Oldcastle, that Oldcastle will not be advantageous to our community and neighbor hoods, that open pit mining opment zoning of the area, that Oldcastle presented no certain evidence to demonstrate that granting of the exception will promote the appearance, welfare or be of any comfort to the residents of the county. Oldcastle is like a pouting child because they didnt get their permit so now they bully and threaten. Theres something amiss here and it smells like that, who needs enemies?Mark Lyons Glen St. MaryDear Editor:Censorship is alive and well with the chairman of the Baker County Republican Party. I have been a Republican since I was old enough to vote and a member of the Baker Republican Executive Committee [REC] un til last month. Last December we elected Kirk Gravelle as chairman and I was looking forward to working with him. A few months ago I responded to an article that Joel Addington had written about our local party commit tee. I felt that Joel had insinuated that the REC was becoming divisive and extreme. I countered his argument stating the Re publicans believe in school prayer, strong national defense, limited government, repeal of Obamacare, life begins at conception, strong 2nd Amendment, etc. All of these ideals were listed in the 2012 GOP platform. I signed my letter and The Press graciously published it. At the next REC meeting I was promptly taken to task for voicing my opinion. Mr. Gravelle told me that my letter was divisive, listed Tea Party values and would certainly alienate any atheists, homosexuals or prochoice citizens that would have joined our party had I not written the letter. Mr. Gravelle also told me that any future communication with the The Press would have to be cleared by the communications team, of which he was the chair. This directive led to a heated exchange between myself and Mr. Gravelle about 1st Amendment rights and his role as chairman. Mr. Gravelle then asked for my resignation three times. Recently I spoke at the county commission meeting and wrote The Press about the Chamber of Commerce holding a small business round table that was not open to all local small businesses. Although I was not confronted directly, I was told that Mr. Gravelle expressed his displeasure to several committee members that I had, once again, voiced my opinion without seeking clear ance from the communications team. Gravelle, this time over sand mining. I am dead set against sand mining coming to our county. I feel the negative impact to our environment far outweighs the six jobs that Oldcastle promises. Mr. Gravelle supports Oldcastle and has stooped to using the Baker County Republican Facebook page to call a private citizen who opposes sand mining a liar. In addition, posts updating the public about the mediation process have been deleted. It appears to me that Mr. Gravelle may be attempting to discourage free speech among Baker County Republicans. This type of censorship will negatively effect current REC members and discourage party growth. After all, who would want to join a party whos chairman must give his stamp of approval before you speak in public? that the chairman has this right. In order to grow the party and win elections, our party must appeal to conservatives, moderate Re publicans, libertarians and Blue Dog Demotional rights, especially the 1st Amendment. Mr. Gravelle would be wise to remember that. Theresa Rhoden Glen St. MaryBy Bill Schwartz Special to The Press My wife and I moved to Baker County in 1996 to work as youth pastors at First Assembly of God. Through the years we lived and worked in Baker County for a total of 10 years. Our season of living in this community held many life-changing events for us. We bore our two amazing children, made life-long friends and I was an assistant basketball coach at the high school when the team made it to the state playoffs. My family and I now live in Belgium where we are church planters and Bible College instructors. Last evening I received a Facebook a blue blazer, white pants and had the most welcoming smile. He also served on the board that hired my wife and I as youth pastors. Our arrival to Baker County started a beautiful friendship with Tommy. and I to lunch almost every day, I think because he knew how much ketball games I ever attended. He took me on multiple tours of Macclenny in the Gator Car. He invited me to join the Chain Gang for the Wildcats where I was the youngest member by many decades. Together we spent countless hours driving to high school football ing motorcycles. We hold a very precious memory of the day he came to our home on Woodlawn Road to present us with a restored rocking chair that his mother used. This was for my pregnant wife, as we were of years. I made sure to go by and see Tommy in the nursing home. Although his speech was impaired from the stroke, Im so glad I spent this time with him. It was emotional for both of us when I left. Baker County just wont be the same without Tommy Gator Man Johns! He will always have a place in our hearts as one of the best friends weve ever had.

ursday, November 7, 2013 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, November 7, 2013The Florida Parks Service is also reconsidering its approval of the proposed Union monuments location, which the department selected after its staff made a visit to the roughly 3-acre state park. The largest Confederate monument was dedicated in 1912 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, or UDC, and sits on parks northern side. The two smaller generals monuments were placed to the east and west, so the Union monument as proposed on the south side would create a rectangular space in the middle. Mrs. Porter said the parks service, a division of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, has extended its public comment period on the proj meeting is tentatively scheduled to discuss the matter on December 2, though a location has not The parks service is seek alternative sites for the Union monument, she said. Thats all welcome news for Macclennys Larry Rosenblatt, a member of the Sons of Confederposed to the Union monument. Mr. Rosenblatt said he could tolerate the monument somewhere else, but placing it where the blood of his ancestors was spilled and adjacent to the Confederate monuments is going too far, he said. Its a state park. The UDC worked for years just to get the property and get the monument put up and got no help out of the federal government, he said. It was all done by the State of Florida, for the State of Florida, [because of the] people who were invading the State of Florida. To put another monument up on that ground, especially sticking it right there in the front or even on that 3 acres, would be a slap in the face to a lot of southerners. It is a monument to the invaders of Florida, on very hallowed ground and it is being pushed by political correctness, said Mr. Rosenblatt, adding that its the history of the Civil War and its aftermath, when southerners were oppressed, that also motivates his opposition. He described the effort by the Sons of Union Veterans as a sneak attack. You think they would let me put a Confederate monument up at Gettysburg? Mr. Rosenblatt asked rhetorically. The Sons of Union Veterans is amenable to changing its monuments planned location, said Lloyd Monroe of Tampa, a re tired attorney whose black foreing in the Battle of Olustee for the Union. Mr. Monroe is president of the commission managing the project for the Sons of Union Veterans. He said previously that if the state reverses its approval of the monuments proposed location, the project would still move forward. Were willing to move it to another location for a reason able or logical reason, but that may increase the scale or add other features because it would have to serve as an attraction in its own right, Mr. Monroe said. If the state capitulates to that in sistence and moves it to a more obscure place in the park, one would think the scale and design would need to change. But thats not our preference. We want [a monument] that compliments the existing monuments. The state park property abuts federally-owned land of the ing the cleared area where the annual battle re-enactment takes place each February. Mr. Rosenblatt said the actual battle, which was over in four or nearly 3000, took place where the existing monuments stand today. He said the cemetery where the Union grave marker a large cross erected in 1991 west of the state park is owned by the federal government, citing a deed from the 1930s transferring title to the land to the United States of America. There are more than 100 graves at the location, in addition to whats believed to be a mass grave where hundreds of Union soldiers were buried about two years after the battle. For Mr. Rosenblatt and others opposed to the proposed placement at the state park, the cemhonor the memory of Union soldiers who fought in the battle. The Sons of Union Veterans, however, disagree. Their proposmonument to commemorate Our mission as sons is to keep green the memory of the valor and courage of those soldiers and veterans who fought to preserve the Union and purchased with their blood the end of slavery in our land, reads a slide show presentation about the project dated September 26, 2013.

Mr. Dickinson explained that the battle re-enactment origi nally took place in Jacksonville at the Gator Bowl, now Everbank Field and the home of the Jaguars football team. He estimates 30 years ago. Its really neat how its grown since then, he said of the battle, which typically attracts some 15,000 visitors from across the country. Mr. Dickinson, a re-enactor himself at the Olustee Battle and others in Florida and South Georgia, is looking forward to the new museums ground breaking in February. The sign that greets visitors to the park was also recently refurbished by the CSO group. They repaired or replaced missing or broken pieces of the sign and repainted it, and adjusted some colors to make the sign bolder and more vibrant. We want the citizens of Bak er County and other counties to come out to Olustee and enjoy the state park we have out there, he said. From page 1 JOEL ADDINGT ON NEWS EDIT OR firstname.lastname@example.orgBaker Countys two state leg islators joined a handful of public hearing at the county commission chambers about mid-afternoon on October 31. During the 35-minute hearing, Sen. Charlie Dean (R-Inverness) and Rep. Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City) heard from the school boards Patricia Weeks cant seat on the panel, the county manager about the newly-built but empty prison re-entry facility in Sanderson and the Olustee Union monument controversy, and County Judge Joey Williams other issues. Why do we not have the statutory authority to require some probationers to post a bond while theyre on probation? And I do that actually, said Judge Williams. Generally, after suspects are arrested and booked at the county jail, their bond is set and upon paying 10 percent of the bond amount, the suspects are released from jail until their trials begin or they strike a plea bar gain with the state. But the judge said he often re quires a bond when sentencing offenders to probation in lieu of jail or prison to prove [theyre] a good risk. The risk, he said, is that without such bonds, probationers have little incentive to remain in the county and in compliance with the terms of their probation, which often require drug and alcohol testing and other restrictions. and violate their probation, a warrant is issued locally for their arrest, but they are not pursued in other jurisdictions unless they are suspected of committing a crime there or otherwise come into contact with law enforcement. If you violate and you dont come back [to court] and theres a warrant for you, its not going to local jurisdiction, our sheriffs these warrants, Judge Williams said. But if they leave the county, nobody is going to go looking for them ... They leave the jurisdiction and theres no justice. Judge Williams didnt recommend that probation bonds be mandatory, but rather theyd be a meaningful tool, particularly if a defendant has a history of violating probation or failing to appear for court dates. Sen. Dean, a former sheriff in Citrus County for 15 years, suggested that adding a court order to the mix may help keep probationers from leaving the county, too. If they violate the order, its automatic theyre in contempt, [and face] up to 364 days and its unappealable, said the senator. He suggested the county judges association submit a proposal to the senates judicial committee for review. I think it has some merit, he said of the strategy. Mrs. Weeks of the school board requested the legislators speed up the appointment of board seat of Jesse Davis, who left last summer for a new job in Atlanta. She said her biggest con cern, however, was that funding the state gave local districts for teacher raises this year remain in the state budget going forward. It amounted to about $850,000 for Baker County, she said. Im very concerned whether that money will be there next year to fund the salary sched ule we have in place, said Mrs. Weeks. I know that was the intention but Im bringing it up be cause it does concern me. I know budgets are always tight. Funding for facility maintenance and repairs, and possibly new construction, is sorely needed, too, said the school board member. Thats always a concern for us in a small county having the money to make repairs and even fund some new things. Wed like to build a ninth grade center to school campus but right now we dont have money to do that. County Manager C.J. Thompson asked the legislators about the states plans for the Baker Correctional Institutes Re-Entry Center on US 90 in Sanderson. The centers are facilities where inmates within three years of release are placed to receive assistance with reintegrating into society, including job training, substance abuse counseling and life skills classes. The re-entry center here was completed two years ago, but remains empty today. Porter pointed to what lies ahead for the center, however. I have not heard anything new on the re-entry center, so I dont have any information for you, said Rep. Porter. We can see if there is anything new. Prior to the hearing, Mr. Thompson said the state allocated funding to build the 400-plus bed center, to be used for inmates ida, but not funding to operate the facility. He postulated the de lay might be due to the question of whether the state will operate the re-entry center or outsource that role to a private company. Rep. Porter both support public management of the facility. Sen. Dean noted the many state-run correctional institutions in his District 3 as motivation for his position on privatization. He said his district also in springs than anywhere in the country and possibly the world, which accounts for his strong support for clean water in recent years. Hes fought for funding to cleanup Floridas waterways and tighter regulations for septic tanks. Goals for 2014 session The senator, who chairs the Senate Environmental Preser vation and Conservation Committee, intends to continue his efforts to protect the states water resources, following up on his success last session in helping secure some $36 million for springs protection projects in north and central Florida. This session Sen. Dean said he wants to move to a more com prehensive approach to water quality, water quantity and water impacts in the State of Florida for all districts and all counties. He said the issue has been put on the back burner thanks to the states tight budgets in re cent years, but with the state projecting a budget surplus for 2014, more should be done. Sen. Dean hopes to encourage cooperation among state and regional environmental regulators, private environmental groups and agri-business to develop scitices for protecting the states water for future generations. I would like to facilitate that type of thinking not bring a bill but I want to see us start to build a foundation for this kind of thinking throughout the state, he said. Rep. Porter said she plans to continue her focus on reforming the states education system, spemore engagement among students during their middle school years. Last year we tackled high school reform and made a lot of progress, she said. This year well delve into middle school can keep our middle school students interested and invested. That seems to be a place where we lose them going from an interactive, hands-on elementary school environment where you do a lot physical activity and interact with the teacher, to being thrust into a middle school environment where its basically a lecture series.Topics vary at legislators conclave PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON State Senator Charlie Dean and Representative Elizabeth Porter during last weeks delegation hearing in Macclenny. three more fraud charges against a Macclenny woman for operating a Facebook-based scheme to bilk cash from people registering for a craft fair that never took place.

Overall, our attendance rate is 95 percent. I want a hundred percent, Westside principal Lynne Fort told the board. If theyre not there they cant learn. She said she believes parents will be more active ly involved in their childrens school work this year than ever before, based on a recent open house at the school that drew a record attendance 80 percent of the student body and their parents. Weve never had that big of a group, Mrs. Fort said. Goals outlined in the schools improvement plan include achieving greater gains in reading, through various strategies including two-hour uninterrupted reading blocks, group instruction, accelerated reading, an after school readers club, parent workshops with their kids and other resources. Only 61 percent of all third graders at Westside scored above a level 3 on Reading FCAT 2.0 last level. or above level 3 on the Math FCAT 2.0 last year. The goal this year is 80 percent. Weve got quite a few things to be proud of, Mrs. Fort said, noting that an after school reading program for kids who need a little extra help has been very successful, running about eight children per class. Parent workshops, wherein moms and dads re ceive guidance for helping their children learn how to read and asking the right questions to help them gain a better understanding of the material, also has been well received, she said. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson asked Mrs. Fort to prepare a presentation for the school board in the near future to give members a clearer understanding of how the workshops function. Giving children greater exposure to math and science at Westside will be accomplished through numerous STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, Math projects this year, including gardening, embryology (studying chicken eggs), a recycling fair, and dissecting the regurgitated remains of an owls meal called a pellet. Its a hands-on experience, Mrs. Fort said. Some kids like it; some dont. She wrapped up her presentation by telling the board and superintendent that she and her faculty have a lot of things going on and were going to con tinue to have a lot more. Youre doing great things over there, Mrs. Raulerson told Mrs. Fort. Our schools challenge kids and provide a great education. I commend yall for what youre doing. Keller Intermediate, which received a D rating by the state in 2012-13, also has big plans for turning things around this year, according to principal Gail ministrator. and will continue to observe classroom procedures and teaching techniques throughout the year to help bring about desired improvements in reading, writing, math and science. performing at level 3 or higher on the FCAT readpercent scoring at or above 3.5 on the FCAT writing at achievement level 3 or higher in math, up from 54 percent last year; and 55 percent scoring at level 3 or To help achieve these goals, teachers have re ceived professional development training in writing techniques designed to improve writing skills among students. Also, a dedicated 45-minute writing block will be conducted in all fourth grade classes each day. A further goal at Keller is for learning gains in math and reading to be demonstrated by at least 50 percent of the pupils in the lower quartile. After school tutoring is offered two days a week to provide the additional instruction. Tutoring has been so popular that the enrollment had to be capped in order to keep classes small enough to be effective after parents signed up 190 have a waiting list. Board member Patricia Weeks said she knows the school has struggled to help children in the lower 25 being done to help those in the upper quartile. The struggle is keeping them from sliding, Mrs. learning gains are very small. One tool that will be instrumental in helping bring about greater academic achievement at Keller, truancy. We have aggressively gone after students who are truant, she said, including closer and more fre quent communication with parents and even taking some to county court to explain why their kids have been absent from school so much. Once a student reaches 15 days (absent from school) thats when it goes to Judge (Joey) Williams, she said. Baker County Middle School and later was an assistant principal there before taking her current job at Keller, said she has a personal reason for wanting Keller to earn a higher grade from the state and help her students do their very best in class. This is my last year and I want us to do well, she said, adding that after the 2013-14 school year ends she plans to retire and spend more time with her family.

Blaine Gabbert had his best outing of the season. Justin Blackmon didnt get arrested. It was a great day to be a Jaguar. Wait a minute! You might ask yourself why you didnt see anything about the Jaguars breaking their eight-game losing streak. Well they didnt. They were off Sunday. As a result, they had the best showing of the season. Maybe they should be off next weekend too. Titans. Oh well. day if you were a Bulldog or Sem a Gator. It has to be very frustrating to be a Gator fan and watch the team battle back to within a hairs breath of winning the game against Georgia, only to see it slip away as the players couldnt control their emotions. It left coach Will Muschamp and the Gator faithful fuming and well it should. Three hours away down I-10, the Seminoles were entering a game that would help define their season. The #3 ranked Seminoles ricanes. One or both of those teams were overrated, and the game would decide which. It clearly did. Take away a pair of Jameis Winston interceptions that the Hurricanes turned into touchdowns and this very well could have been a 41-0 shutout. Other than those two miscues, Winston lived up to the hype. He was cool, calm and collected. The running game was im pressive and though it got physical and chippy from time to time, the coaching staff kept it under control. As it stands now, the Seminoles travel to Wake Forest, and host Syracuse and Idaho before they take on the Gators in Gainesville. If the cards fall for the Seminoles, they could well be in the hunt for the national title. Who would have thought it last season?

The boys 400-yard freestyle relay team, consisting of sophomores Daughton Martin and Matthew Morgan and juniors Jonathan Mobley and Brandon Miller, swam a personal record time of 4:06.42, but the team was too early. Martin also competed in two individual events.

The Wildcats were eliminated from playoff contention with a 38-20 road loss to the undefeatMistakes plagued the team for the second consecutive game. While the Wildcats could overcome the miscues against the lowly Stanton, the errors proved costly against a team the caliber of Bishop Kenny. Freshman quarterback Joe Green was thrust into a tough position in just his second varsity start playing against one of the districts best defenses. Although he made some nice plays during the game, his three interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns, ended several Baker County drives and allowed the Crusaders to add to their lead. The Wildcats mistakes didnt just involve turnovers, but they continually triggered penalties throughout the night. The team 120 yards. was competitive until midway through the third quarter. In fact, it was the Wildcats making the big plays early. Usually an offensive standout at wide receiver, senior Mike tion of the season when he picked off a pass from quarterback John Wolford on the second play of the game. The offense couldnt move the ball far and the drive ended Baker Countys defense almost forced another turnover in Bishop Kenny territory on the next drive after recovering a fum ble, but there was an inadvertent whistle from a referee that forced the down to be replayed. The de fense forced a punt on the next play. Bishop Kenny took a 3-0 lead early in the second quarter on scoreless opening quarter. Green then threw his first interception of the night. The turnover led to the Crusaders extending their lead to 10-0 on an incredible touchdown pass from Wolford where he fought off Wildcat defenders and found a wide receiver in the corner of the end zone. The Wildcats werent phased Green connected with Boone on the receiver outran the defense to score. A failed two-point conversion made the score 10-6. The Crusaders responded with a 10-play scoring drive when they got the ball back following Boones lone touchdown of the night. Wolford capped off the drive with a 14-yard touchdown throw to Chuck Wade to make Baker County had a chance to make it a three-point game on the opening drive of the second half. The Wildcats were driving and had the ball deep in Bishop Kennys territory with the help of a 22-yard completion to Boone. But a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty backed the team up. The offense couldnt overcome the added yardage and led to a turnover on downs. The defense stepped up to force the Crusaders to punt as junior defensive end CeCe Jefferson dropped Wolford on a thirddown sack and gave the offense another chance to cut into the lead. On the first play of the offenses next possession, Greens second interception of the night was returned for a touchdown to add to the Crusaders lead and make it a 24-6 game entering the fourth quarter. The Wildcats were driving the ball offensively to open the fourth quarter with the help of an 18-yard run from running back Dalton Dyal and a 25-yard completion. The latter was called back due to offsetting penalties. Greens second pick-six of the night followed the penalty and ing despite the lopsided score and posted 14 fourth-quarter points on a 50-yard touchdown catch-and-run from wide receiver Anthony James and a 3-yard scoring run by Dyal. Wolford on a 21-yard run to put the game further out of reach. Green finished the game completing 10 of 19 passes for 195 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
