Hours before the parade chairs lined the sidewalks on the western end of the parade route near the 6th Street intersection with US 90 while visitors, many with their pets in tow, strolled up and down the streets chatting with vendors, picking up holiday decorations and gifts or sampling some of the fair-like fare such as funnel cakes, snow cones, kettle corn, barbecued turkey legs or any number of deep-fried dishes. The 6 pm parade ended with Santa lighting the Christmas tree with his elves in front of City Hall (above). The event is organized by the City of Macclenny Fire Department. Winners of the best oat contest by cat egory were First Baptist Church of Glen St. Mary among local churches and best overall, the BCHS Rhythmettes in the school oat category, the Moose Lodge won among the civic groups, and Walmart and Davis Golf Carts tied for the business winner, and the overall.

I am busily decorating for the holiday season. I am home this week from Atlanta, where we have decorated every square inch of the little apartment where we live at the Shepherd Center to put Sara Beth in the holiday mood. Now its time to start on the house. Son Dylan, the designated light stringer, crawled around on the roof to put up lights. Since we have a metal roof he is not nearly as happy about walking around up there. But the alternative of no holiday lights bothers him more. Doesnt bother me. If it was a choice between me climbing on the roof or going without lights around the eaves, wed be lightless. I hate heights and wouldnt have made a very good Santa. We have a tree soaking in a pan of water waiting to be put up in the front room. Im not real thrilled about the tree this year, but we waited so long to buy one that what was left were Charlie Brown trees. Well put the hole to the wall, said Kelley. Wed better have more than one wall, I answered. The look she gave me was definitely not festive. Coal in my stocking for sure. I love having my house look and smell festive. Of course, theres a lot of work to get it that way. The member of the family who likes Christmas the least is Speedy the turtle. He is looking like a terrapin version of Grumpy Cat. Speedy lives in a big 50-gallon aquarium on a table in the front room by the living room windows. That is also where the tree lives for the month it is in the house. That means that Speedy gets evicted to my dark and dingy office away from the bright light and view to the front yard. Speedy likes to look at the yard and the birds and the cat. He is not happy staring at me working on the computer. I like almost everything about Christmas almost. There are some things I could do without, so here are a few of what my mother would have called my Christmas pet peeves. stars who shouldnt make Christmas albums. I love Christmas music and there are some real classic albums by pop stars. Mariah Carey, Elvis, Amy Grant, The Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, Alan Jackson, James Taylor, Rod Stewart, Alabama and Chuck Berry. But then, theres Justin Bieber, Metallica, AC/DC, Green Day, Brittany Spears, Jessica Simpson, Bad Religion, Korn all devastatingly bad holiday songs. My favorite title is Dont Shoot Me, Santa by The Killers. fruitcake? We will occasionally get one, and most of the time it sits around the house getting heavier and heavier until it can be used as a door stop. After a month or two someone gets fed up with it taking up space on the counter and throws it away. When I was little my mom and dad always got one in the mail. What I remember the most about it was how it smelled. Whoever sent this thing had literally soaked it in rum. It made the whole house smell like a tavern. Come to think of it, this is the only fruitcake I can remember that ever got eaten. Christmas cards, but holiday letters not so much. They usually come from people you never hear from all the rest of the year and they try to sum up the other 364 days in two pages. Sometimes theres an embarrassing family photo with everyone dressed in red and green. mas sweaters? If so, they are like good fruitcake very hard to find. There are certainly plenty of gaudy Christmas sweaters. I particularly like the ones that are 3D and have reindeer with sewn-on sleigh bells or trees with little balls hanging from them. Ive even seen one with LED lights. Santa. I ran across a book in Barnes and Noble from the folks that produce the website awkwardfamilyphotos.com with pictures of kids on Santas lap who look like they are being tortured. I have a few of those pictures with my children screaming their heads off or looking terrified of the guy in the beard and red suit. Of course, all of those things are just a tiny part of the Christmas experience and the fact that I can laugh about it makes it even better. What you had to say ... LETTERS TO THE EDITOR F avorite oats?After last Saturdays Christmas pa rade we turned to our Facebook family to ask what the favorite oats were (a list of ocial winners is on the front page). Heres a look at some of those fav oats: Katie Smith Coulliette: The train was my sons favorite. Paula Miller: The veterans. Thank you doesnt seem enough. Tabby Collingwood: The train.

We are so very lucky to have a parade like this. Not one complaint. We loved it all ... Had two people who had never been and they loved it too. A lot of parades are short and sweet. Unlike this one. Good job Macclenny! Brandon Finley: Im having a hard time believing nobody went with the Soggy Bottom oat! Only thing that could have made it better was if the Dukes of Hazard theme played on re peat. Kaylann Marie Long: The parade was awesome this year. The only complaint I have is the monster trucks.

First, in an increasing number of child abuse cases in Northeast Florida, the perpetrators were the boyfriends of the childrens mothers. Until a child can communicate the source of his or her distress, whether being hungry, wet or ill; if a child is left in the wrong hands, under pressure, the consequences can be catastrophic. sponsibility of overseeing a child. Boyfriends should have an emotion al investment in the childs well being before being allowed to baby sit. Ive been married for 30 years and have helped raise three children. I was an involved parent and connected even when deployed around the world during my military career. I didnt have any infant care experience before having my own children. My wife and I waited until I felt comfortable and had more experience before caring for them alone. Remove the guidance from a parent on caring for an infant, add an infant crying for an hour, reduce a patience level with a hangover or the end of a 12to 13-hour work shift and another few hours until mom returns, and you have a recipe for disaster. This is not to say that men cant care for infants or toddlers, because there are many who do a great job, but the facts prove that unand death cases. Additionally, more than 20 babies in Northeast Florida have died due to dangerous sleep practices in cases that were reported to DCF. The controversial practice of co-sleeping involves parents sleeping with infants in the same bed. But the risk is that the adult could roll over on top of the infant while sleeping, causing them to suffocate. Excess bedding like heavy comforters and pillows are also hazardous for infants. Many family albums have a photo of someone sleeping with a pre cious baby snuggled and sleeping contently on their chest. It may make for a great photo, but its a risky situation in real life. These childrens lives cant be reset like a video game. Their lives are gone or altered forever. If parents are temporarily unable to care for their children, I urge them to choose someone to watch them who is responsible and capable of handling their childrens needs under pressure. I also urge parents to always follow the ABCs of safe sleep that babies sleep safest Alone, on their Backs and in Cribs.David Abramowitz Regional Director Florida Department of Children and FamiliesDear Editor:As is noted on page 106 of my book Rhoda the mother of Floridas governor at the time comments to a select group of Florida legislators when lobbying for the monument at the This monument, if you approve, will not be singularly for the noble soldiers of the South, but for all, both North and South who fought for what they perceived was right and honorable.

I want to caution the board, said Mr. Giddens, who cast the only vote in favor of Oldcastles mining proposal in July. Im worried that were going to end up spending a pile of money. It worries me. He said the county has already spent several thousand dollars in legal fees related to the mining dispute, including $2,400 for its share of expenses accumulated by a special magistrate appointed to conduct a mediation hearing that began in late October. Oldcastle, a subsidiary of an international corporation headquartered in Ireland, can afford to hire top-shelf lawyers in Flor ida to drag the case through the court system, which Mr. Giddens said would put a heavy burden on the county budget in unanticipated legal expenditures. The sky will be the limit, he said. The board did not act on the commissioners suggestion, although Chairman Jimmy Anderson shared his concern for the potential expense a lawsuit could impose on county taxpayers. I agree with your concerns, Mr. Anderson said, adding, however, that he was not impressed with Oldcastles latest proposal to resolve the companys complaint. What they offered was, basically, nothing, Mr. Anderson said, without divulging any details in the proposal, which is not a matter of public record until an in the mediation proceedings, according to County Attorney Rich Komando. A special magistrate appoint ed to oversee mediation efforts, which is provided for by state law to avoid litigation in court, has not announced his recommendation after county commissioners rejected Oldcastles latest offer last week. At the end of the board meeting Mr. Komando told the board he would communicate to the special magistrate by December 6 that any future mediation efforts appeared to be futile. At that time, he said, It would be up to Oldcastle to decide how they plan to proceed. Reached at his Orange Park noon of December 9, Mr. Komando said the special magistrate told him he probably wouldnt make a recommendation until January because he has a number of people he needed to talk to and because of the holidays. And until the mediator declares an impasse, the proceedings and all related documents dance with state law, Mr. Komando said. Meanwhile, despite the county commissions stance last week, Oldcastle remains hopeful that it can still reach a compromise with the county to avoid a lawsuit, said Elizabeth Revell, a public rela tions consultant who was hired by the company last year to help win community support for its mining plans. Oldcastle is still hoping to work this out, Ms. Revell said on December 9. The company wants to resolve this in a way that In another zoning-related issue during last weeks board meeting Commissioner James Croft suggested an ordinance to block adult toy stores from spreading into Baker County from other jurisdictions. Noting that other counties in Northeast Florida have already been wrestling with the issue, Mr. Croft, an ordained minister, said it would be better to get ahead of the game rather than be de fensive after someone seeks a permit to open such a business in Baker County. Though the county generally welcomes new businesses and job opportunities, he said, I am opposed to that type of industry. He suggested having Mr. Komando research what other coun ties have done to combat this and report his findings to the board at a later date. The board approved the recommendation. Mr. Komando said it might take a while to bring a report back to the board because he would have to research all local ordinances aimed at prohibiting adult have been upheld (by the courts) and which have been stricken down. Now would be an opportune time to begin studying the issue, Mr. Croft said, noting that the county is in the process of revising its land development regulations. We might work it into the LDR review process, he said. In other business during the December 3 board meeting, commissioners: reduced permit application fees for public projects from the St. Johns River and Suwannee River water management districts and from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. In accordance with a state law that grants counties with populations of 50,000 or less the right to seek reductions in state permit processing fees, Baker County is asking for fees not to exceed $100 per permit, or a 50 percent dis count if the current application fee is less than $100. According to the resolutions, Baker County qualifies for the permit reductions because the countys percentage of assessed property values that are exempt from ad valorem taxation is higher than the statewide average.

F rom page 1 Giddens: The countys building and zoning department will make yet another effort to contact the owner of property on SR 121 South before initiating fines for failure to remove two abandoned mobile homes and accompanying refuse. The Baker County Code Enforcement Board voted the eve ning of December 9 to allow more time to make contact with Larry Shepherd, who ignored previous notices of the violations and notice of hearing. Code officer Bobby Griffin told the board a posted notice of the violation and hearing was removed before his final inspection, and a certified notice mailed to Mr. Shepherd in September was returned unopened. Board member Gerald Hern don moved for the extra time, stipulating that if contact is not made with the owner in 30 days, a fine of $75 for the first day after that and $15 daily for a maximum of 180 days will be imposed after another 20 days. An administrative fee of $85 also applies. Board chair Jim McGauley and member Chris Gazes voted against the motion, reasoning that the owner had been given sufficient notice required by statute and failed to respond. Members Waldo Brock and David Walls supported Mr. Herndon. In another case, the CEB granted Johnnie Taylor a reduction of $500 off an original $1160 fine for failure to correct several violations on her property on Palmetto Place west of Glen St. Mary. Ms. Taylor, of Jacksonville, appeared at the December meeting and insisted she acted in good faith and on instructions from former code officer Robert Ha thcox. She did not dispute, however, that she failed to clean up refuse and remove abandoned vehicles before the deadline set by the board in May. Decembers meeting was the first one attended by newly-hired county attorney Rich Komando of Orange Park, who advised that an additional hearing will be needed in January before the county files a lien on property formerly owned by Molly ONeill on Taft Rd. The tract was recently purchased by Joy Chapman via a tax deed, and Mr. Griffin reported the violations continue. The new owner moved a dumpster onto the property and told the county she intends to clean it up. The CEB earlier found the tract in violation for abandoned trailers and refuse and the accumulated fines are $1385.JOEL ADDINGTON N E WS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe vast majority of school teachers and administrators in Baker County earned effective or highly-effective ratings, according to preliminary evaluations released by the Florida Department of Education last week. In fact, 97 percent of teachers here and 100 percent of the administrators were evaluated as such during the 2012-13 school year. The Baker County School District has many very dedicated, hard working, caring professionals, said the districts head of instruction and curriculum David Davis by email this week. While our evaluation system points this out, there are always improve ments to be made in academic instruction. The evaluation system along with teacher growth is a continuous work in progress. Theres opportunity for progress, the evaluations show, at Keller Intermediate School. There 18.2 percent of teachers, eight in all, were given the needs improvement designation. Half were judged effective and 31.8 percent were evaluated as highly effective. Keller is the districts only D-school. After shedding its D-grade from 2011 last year, Keller reverted to that rating this year. The B-grade since 2006, after holding its A-grade for six straight years. But it couldve been worse. state Board of Educations decision last summer to limit all drops in school letter grades to one letter grade to ensure stability and fair ness in Floridas school grading system, read a press release from the state at the time. The move helped lessen the blow of tougher standardized tests rolled out this year. County-wide, 78.3 percent of teachers and 87.7 percent of administrators were evaluated as highly-effective, while 19.1 percent of teachers and 13.3 percent of administrators were evaluated as effective. Unlike Baker County, where most of the teachers received the top rating, the majority of teachers statewide, 65.6 percent, were evaluated as effective with 32.2 percent garnering the highly-effective label. Though a small share of faculty were not evaluated here, just 15 people, those who were received one of four ratings: highly-effective, effective, needs improvement or unsatisfactory. Teachers with two consecutive years of unsatisfactory performance are subject to termination, though no one here has ever received that designation since the new evaluation system was established last year. Like school grades, the evaluations of teachers and their bosses are partly based on how their students perform on standardthe evaluation is formulated from those test results, while the other half comes from inperson observations, usually by principals or district administrators. The most highly-effective of the districts 329 teachers can be found at Macclenny Elementary and Westside Elementary where 95.7 percent, or 45 teachers, hit that mark at each campus. The remaining faculty at both schools were evaluated as effective. At the middle school, 77.9 percent of teachers are highly-effective and 22.1 percent are effective, the evaluations show. At BCHS, the split is 80.2 percent highly-effective and 19.8 effective. At the PreK-Kindergarten Center its 90 percent and 10 percent. The evaluations elsewhere have prompted some critics to question the validity of the evaluation system because statewide the share of failing schools is much higher than the share of under-performing teachers. Across Florida, 17 percent of all middle and elementary schools were graded as D or F schools this year, yet 97.9 percent of teachers statewide have effective or highly-effective evaluations. Critics of the system also point to another counselors whose students dont take stan dardized exams are evaluated based on the average student performance school-wide. That means theyre being evaluated, in part, based on the performance of fellow faculty members rather than their own performance. Teachers here are evaluated using a 16page form developed by Jerry Copeland of Educational Management Consultant Services in Titusville. The form allows administrators to measure teacher performance in more than 70 different skill areas within nine separate categories like planning, student engage ment, classroom management and professionalism.

ursday, December 12, 2013 T B C P Page 15 Page14DECEMBER 12, 2013 JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS Wildcats added three more victories to their season-opening winning streak to improve their undefeated record to 6-0 on the year. The team cruised to an easy 77-37 road victory over West Nassau on December 3. The Wildcats aggressive defensive play early in the game forced the Warriors into mistakes. The defensive pressure allowed the offense to shine. Charles Ruise Jr. once again led the Cats in scoring with 23 points. Darius Fisher and Jesse Gardner both added 12 points. The teams next game wouldnt come as easily, but the Cats still pulled out a close 67-66 home victory over Suwannee on December 5. Coach Charles Ruise said his team had to take away Suwannees ability to score in transition. The Cats had to bottle up the middle of the lane and slow the pace down to favor their half court offense. The strategy paid off as the boys were able to squeak out the one-point win. It was a hard-fought ball game, Coach Ruise said. We did what we needed to down the stretch to win. The players fought for the entire game. They may bend but they dont break. Charles Ruise Jr.s team-high 32 points kept the Cats in the game and helped continue their unbeaten streak. Brian Walton added 15 points and Gardner scored eight. The teams next game was never in doubt as they blew out the hosting Lee Generals 57-36 on December 7. The Cats strong defensive effort allowed them to score easy transition buckets to gain control of the game. The game was relatively close at halftime, but the Wildcats blew the game open in the third quarter and Lee never recovered. Ruises 19 points led the team, while Gardner scored 10 and CeCe Jefferson added nine points. The Wildcats will try to continue their winning streak when they travel to Trinity on December 10. They open district play December 14 when they host the Stanton Prep Blue Devils. The Wildcats will have to try slowing down Stantons senior guard Miguel Dela cruz, who is ranked trict 3-5A in pointsper-game (9.8), threepoint field goals per game (1.2), steals-pergame (2.4), assistsper-game (1.2) and free throws made (9). Coach Ruise is con fident entering district play. He said the team is in a position to set itself up for a nice district seed for the tournament. The Cats guard play will be what allows the team to compete against the upper echelon of the district, he said. Our guard play is exceptional this year, he said. These guys this year have put in some quality work in the pre season. It will put us in an opportunity to play for a district championship this year.

With the game tied at 46 with 14 seconds to go, Coach Chris Chisholm called a play to get the ball into the young playmakers hands. We called a designed play that we run in practice and they ran it to perfection, he said. Washington sank the gamewinning shot with less than 10 seconds remaining. The Lady Cats then stepped up and held on to the small lead to clinch the victory and improve the teams record to 5-3. Haley Bussell scored 12 points and Lindsey Love added eight points. But the game shouldnt have been that close. The Lady Wildcats took a four-point lead into halftime, and then extended their lead to as much as 14 in the third quarter. The Eagles began using their physicality to their advantage and started pressing the Lady Cats on defense. A 7-2 run to end the third quarter and two 6-0 runs in the fourth quarter gave Episcopal the lead with 40 seconds remaining. Coach Chisholm said the coaching staff had to keep the girls calm as the game became chippy during the closing minutes. Washington took the game give the Lady Cats the exciting win. The head coach said the narrow victory could be a turning point for the young team. They grew up and made the last basket when they needed it, Coach Chisholm said. The girls really showed they were growing together as a team. The emotion from the win has carried over into practice and the coach hopes it can fuel the team through its busy week of games. The Lady Cats hosted Stanton Prep December 10 (see next weeks edition for results) and will travel to West Nassau on December 12. They cap the week off hosting Bradford the following day. Everyone feels good and it gets us ready for a long, hard week, Coach Chisholm said. Were gelling as a team and the younger players are coming along with the help of the veterans and coaching staff.Girls top Episcopal by 2 PHOTO BY JUD JOHNSON CeCe Jeerson with the lay-up.

The Lady Bobcats opened up the evening of action with a 26-17 loss. The team fell behind quickly due to Richardsons defensive pressure and up-tempo offense to give the Lady Tigers an ute into the second quarter when Kim Thrower drained a three pointer, but the team couldnt capitalize on the momentum and trailed 18-3 at halftime. Richardson extended its lead slightly in the cit in the fourth quarter with the help of Carliya Jeffersons six second-half points and Miesha late to mount a full comeback, but the late scorthe game actually was. Zaryona Allen also hit a three-pointer. The girls played hard but we lost by 9 points, said girls coach Ashton Knoll by e-mail. We had some outstanding rebounders in the game Tyneisha Reed, Karlicia Mack, Kyrie Holman, Jalishia Ruise and Aqiyhana Rollins. are all showing great improvements. They are The boys team followed the girls loss with a 54-24 defeat of their own. The Bobcats jumped out to an early lead as Jamon Jones scored to give them a 2-0 lead. It wouldnt last long, however, as the Tigers went Richardson added to its lead in both the third and fourth quarters before a running clock was implemented in the fourth. Curtis Harmon and Tavion Reed both scored six points, while Jones, Jayvon Howard and Brian West all added two points. The Bobcats will try to get on the winning track on the road at Yulee on December 10 and at Bradford County on December 16. BAKER C OUNTY MIDDLE SCHOOLThe BCHS Wildcat wrestling team went 2-1 in a quad-meet held at Forrest High in Jacksonville on December 4 and had several competitors go undefeated. The Wildcats started the day off with a 42-32 victory over Atlantic Coast. James Carter got the first of his three pin victories in the third round of his 220-pound match. Logan Kish also picked up the first of his three wins via pin in the 138-pound division when he ended it in the first round. Tristen Barton, competing in his first-ever meet, secured the first of his two wins at the quad-meet when he ended the match by pin in the second round of his 160-pound match. In the 285 pound division, Collyn Green won by pin in the second round. The Wildcats also had wrestlers win via forfeit in Jenna Reeves at 106, Sydney Williams at 113 and Anthony Johnson at 170. The teams effort continued with a dominant 6618 victory against Englewood. Carter made short work of his opponent and picked up his second pinfall victory of the day in 14 seconds. Kish also ended his match in the first round via pin. Barton fought back after losing the first take down points to secure his second pin of the day in the first round. Robbie Martin at 126, Johnny Ruise at 145 and Caleb Griffin at 152 all added to Baker Countys lead with first-round pin victories. Brandon Harvey, who lost his first match by points after three rounds, bounced back with a pinfall victory in the second round of his 132 pound match. For the second time in two matches, Green won by pin in the second round. Reeves and Johnson both won their matches by forfeit. The Wildcats closed out the day with a hardfought 54-29 loss to Forrest to finish 2-1 at the quadmeet. Kish and Carter closed out their undefeated efforts by securing pins in the second round of their matches in their weight class.

The Wildcats returned home on December 10 to host a meet against Ed White. See next weeks edi tion for coverage. The bowl selections are in. The BCS computer has done its work and chosen (rightly) FSU and Auburn to play for the national title. Next year we will be in a completely unsatisfactory playoff system. FSU won its ticket by going undefeated. Auburn defeated Alabama in one of the most fabulous finishes in college football history and then cackled gleefully as Urban Meyer and Ohio State lost to the Michigan State Spar tans best defense in the Big 10. The FSU/Auburn game should be a good one and I will definitely be decked out in garnet and gold. FSU has a much ballyhooed offense with great running backs and receivers and led by a flashy young quarterback. But it is their punishing defense that put them in the title game. I am also pleased that my Baylor Bears are in the Fiesta Bowl after Oklahoma upset Oklahoma State and the Bears whupped Texas to win the Big 12. Its the first time the Bears have had an outright conference championship since they won the old Southwestern Conference in 1980. They will face the surprising UCF Knights. There are some really interesting match-ups this year. Here are a few of my suggestions. ESPN on December 24 should be an offensive show. So too should be San Diego State and Northern Illinois on ESPN December 26. Its a chance to see one of the best quarterbacks in the country, Jordan Lynch for UNI. cember 30. Both teams will be hacked off that they arent in a BCS bowl and anytime you get to watch the Ducks it is fun. taking on Michigan State should be fun just to watch the Spar tans great defensive line matchup against the best O-line in the college game. There will be some head knocking. ar Bowl featuring Oklahoma and Alabama should be fun in that it is two storied programs who are mad about missed opportunities. F LROBERT GERARD
