Scarborough was sentenced to five years probation as part of a plea deal with state prosecutors on De cember 9. Mr. Scarborough, 77, was arrested in October, 2012 on more than 800 counts of insurance fraud, but pled guilty to the most serious count organized scheme to defraud, which could have netted him up to 30 years in prison last month. The plea deal also requires the defendant to repay nearly $60,000 mostly to Medicare but also to other big-name insurers like Blue Cross Blue Shield, now Florida Blue and Humana. Police suspected Dr. Scarborough was over-prescribing large quantities of highly-addictive medications from his clinic on South 5th Street in Macclenny for years before the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the cords and computers back in September, 2011. The Florida Department of Health soon stripped the physician of his medical license ployees were arrested for drugrelated charges as well. Those cases were dropped or resulted in probation sentences in circuit court here. Mr. Scarborough was prosecuted by the Florida Attorney Prosecution in the Third Judicial Circuit in Lake City. After his arrest, FDLE reported that investigators discovered evidence allegedly linking the then-doctor to over prescribing and allowing unlicensed and untrained staff to practice medicine. The employees were then cal billing to Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers for a level of service that the patient did not receive, read an FDLE statement at the time. Interviews with employees indicated that Scarborough, a sole practitioner, pushed his staff to see 50 or more patients a day and bill for medical issues not addressed and treatment not received ...

Baker County Little League and any other organizations that want to reserve baseball or to go through new sign-in procedures to improve accountability. Commissioners unanimously adopted the new policy recommended by County Manager C.J. Thompson at the December 17 board meeting. A lax use policy in the past has often led to lights being left on all night, illuminating empty ball diamonds long after everyone has left, without the responsible parties being held accountable. The use of the lights at the problem for several years, Mr. Thompson told commissioners. The same rate, $10 per hour, will continue to be assessed for manager said. But thats about the only thing that wont change beginning January 6. After that date, the process the lights will be updated, Mr. Thompson said, to ensure con sistency, fairness and transparency for all those involved. Reservations for specific dates and times will be accepted for a minimum of one hour and additional time can be reserved in 30-minute increments. Upon payment, teams will be added to the calendar re Teams may schedule reservations as far out in advance as they wish as long as payment is received at the time of scheduling, the county manager said. Further, all teams will be required to provide an e-mail adpoint of contact. The biggest change, Mr. Thompson said, will be assigning new combination numbers for every lock once a week.

According to preliminary high school grades released by the Florida Department of Education last schools and three D-schools in Northeast Florida. Im excited that the changes weve made over the last decade appear to have some longevity, commented BCHS Principal Thomas Hill on the latest rating. This is the third year in a row weve had the points for an A. Half of the states high school grading formula is based on student performance on the now tougher FCAT 2.0 exams while the other half comes from four-year graduation rates, participation and performance in advanced courses and college readiness in math and reading.

Friends and family gather to match wits to come up with the most creative gingerbread house. There is plenty to be merry about around my house this year. Son Spencer graduated from UF last Satur day. Son Dylan is going back to school for a health career. And of course, Sara Beth is home for Christmas. She and her husband Aaron are here for the holiday and she will come back for good in January to begin outpatient rehab at Brooks. The tree is lit, the nutcrack ers are lined up in all their mar tial finery on the mantel, the lights are on the eaves (courtesy of Dylan) and people are laughing and talking smack. Many of them take their ginger bread house making seriously. I dont. I fact, I dont even take part in the competition. I am a neutral observer. Im kind of the Switzerland of the gingerbread competition. Somebody has to be or it will get out of hand. It already has to some degree. Most of the participants are Facebook enthusiasts so there has been some smack talk leading up to the competition. My niece Ashton Norman started the war of words by challenging people to bring their A game. I am bringing fierce competition this year. Game on. I have to admit that in my position as Switzerland I did rather egg things on by suggesting that some people in the competition are cheater, cheater, punkin eaters, because they use prefab kits instead of just putting them together from gin gerbread cookies and graham crackers like I had done as a child. That caused a firestorm of controversy. Until I see written competition rules you cannot deduct points for ingenuity, Ashton complained. Not to be outdone by Ashton, competitor Kathy Crews weighed in on Facebook. As most of my dearest friends know ... I hate when people toot their own horn on Facebook so I will not make public who has held the prestigious title sev eral times ... cough ... cough ... (me and Chi Chi) ... but do want to let it be known that we are more than ready to kick some gingerbread butt!! Chi-Chi, otherwise known as Cheryl Hart could not keep out of the conversation on social media. Oh Lord, help us! Its come to this ... Gingie smack talk on FB! Oh well, may the best gingerbread boy, I mean girls win! I fed the fires by claiming I understood that one of those Duck Dynasty guys tweeted somewhere that pre-fab kits were unnatural, at least that was what I had heard. Because so many people liked the good-hearted bantering back and forth, Ive decided to put pictures of the houses up on Facebook and let people vote for the winner of the coveted Gingie a stuffed gingerbread cookie. The competitors are unpacking their super-secret gingerbread gear. Ashton, who is an ag teacher at the middle school, and her partner Casey Thrift have farm animals to go with their agriculture theme. Sara Beth has some kind of a Cinderellas Castle and Cheryl and Kathy are, as usual, keep ing theirs a carefully guarded secret. One year they had a working fireplace that near ly set their house on fire. Last year it was a church with lightup windows. I suspect it might be a gingerbread Cape Kennedy with an actual launching gingerbread rocket to carry the Gingie award to their house. Lou Boyette and his mama Cami promise to keep it old school. Spencer and Dylan have brought a ringer along this year. Spencers girlfriend Myr rhanda knows a thing or two about handling the pressure of competition. Shes Miss Florida and was third runner up at Miss America. Im thinking a gingerbread runway with a baton twirling gingerbread cookie. Myrrhanda, who injured her leg in the competition and competed in a knee brace jumped right in. We could break its leg and stick it back on with icing for realism. Like a 15-round UFC fight there was a lot of finger pointing as the competition began. Ashton brought a whole kit, said Caitlyn Dugger. Who was it who brought tea lights last year? she responded. The noise dies down as the bell for Round 1 sounds and the competitors begin mixing their royal icing and sorting their gum drops. This will go on long past my early deadline for this column, so now, like a cliffhanger serial from the 1930s youll have to wait until next week to see the winning house. Merry Christmas everyone. I hope its a great holiday for all of you and that you have as much to celebrate as I do. LIKE US ONF ACEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION F amily traditionsWhere would we be without family traditions like the Gerards annual gingerbread competition, taking in a movie or opening just one gift early on Christmas Eve? The holiday just wouldnt be the same without them, thats for sure, so we asked our Facebook peeps about their familys Christmas traditions. Heres a look at some of them: Pam Clark: My daughter and her husband havent been home on Christmas in a long time. Hes in the Coast Guard and usually works. So Christmas morning my husband and I sit next to the computer and Skype our daughter so we can open our presents together. So many families cant be with the ones they love as they serve their country, so thank you Lord for computers. Cecil Rhoden Jr.: We always had our Christmas dinner and family gathering on Christmas Eve at our mama and daddys! Since the passing of our mama Barbara Rhoden June 8, 2007, I have carried the tradition on every year at her house. My sister Debbie Fraser and her husband Ryan, her children Gar and Taylor and my partner Eric and our father Cecil Sr. Still have our Christmas the same every year in memory of our Mama and Nana! Merry Christmas Mama, wife and Nana! We will always love you. Your family! Tabby Collingwood: We all open new PJs and slippers on Christmas Eve and read the book The Night Before Christmas. Rachel Kemp: We usually have a hot dog roast on Christmas Eve with family with a huge bonre and all open one gift. Amanda Cinna Mixon: We go to the movies Christmas night. Its wonderful to get out after the cooking and cleaning is done. Stephanie Crews: On Christmas Eve we have our party and then we all go outside and sing Happy Birthday to Je sus and release balloons into the sky. Tammy Crawford McFarland: When I was growing up we opened a gift on Christmas Eve. Then spent Christmas Day opening the rest of our gifts and eating a full traditional meal. My Moma would cook the best holiday meal. Usually enough for any and ev eryone that came by. Now since she has passed, so have all the traditions. Its a very depressing and sad day for me. We didnt even put up a tree this year.W hat would you do with mega millions?A recent Mega Million lottery jackpot was up to $400 million, so we wondered what our Facebook followers would do with that kind of dough. Heres a look at some of the responses we saw: Elizabeth Barber: Build a new animal shelter and offer free spay and neuter surgeries for everyone. Oops, everyones critter. Jennifer Robertson Harvey: Id nev er work for the man again! Marsha Bennett: First, Id give 10 percent to my church. And then, Id buy myself a new pair of tennis shoes and a couple pairs of jeans ... And a Martin D-45 guitar. Aaron Scott: An interesting question. But I think God might ask us what we are doing with what little we al ready have. Besides, Jesus can take our ve loaves and two shes and do more for supper than Bill Gates can do in a lifetime. Bill Mass: Id use a good chunk brib ing some FL and GA state ocials to get Baker County annexed into Georgia and out of Florida! Go Dawgs! Arrica Lightsey: Help people in need!

Every year I run the gauntlet of emotions from laughter to tears as I read them. This year I noticed a slight change in the requests made by the elementary age students in Baker County. A high percentage of kids were asking Santa to give their siblings and parents gifts and some wanted to make sure every child in the world had at least one gift. That in itself is a beautiful gesture but some of them took it one step further. Many letters spoke about how excited they were to spend time with their family. Some asked Santa to please send special family members home from overseas. Several asked Santa to watch over loved ones in the military both near and far. Others asked Santa if there was any way he or she could get their parents to be together for the holidays. Those are the heartbreaking ones. this Christmas season. One child asked Santa to please give Mom and Dad a stress-free holiday because then they wouldnt argue as much. You can tell a lot about a childs home life through that one letter each year. Parents should be especially mindful this year of making sure their kids have a happy Christmas time. Even if you are making lots of trips to see loved ones, dont let your children hear you muttering about how big of a pain it is. If youre happy then they arent going to mind the going as much. If you are dreading it, then they will. Dread it if you must, but do it quietly and out of ear shot. Overall, reading the letters have just about restored my faith in humanity. You still have the children whose parents I pity. Their letters have a list a mile long and the added value of the toys probably exceeds the cost of a new house. Thats to be expected. I was just concerned this young generation was growing up to expect a lot without giving back. This crop of letters shows me that isnt the case ... at least when asking Santa for presents. Merry Christmas and I hope its safe and full of all things merry and bright!

In college-level math, the share of students remained the The states grading formula is used to assign a point total to each school. To receive the coveted A-grade schools must not only score 1050 points or more on the 1600-point scale, they must test at least 95 percent of students and demonstrate that struggling students are making headway in math and reading year-over-year. Baker Highs point total exceeded the A-grade range, but just barely, at 1052. The score ranks Baker County at the top of the bottom half of high schools in the region, or 30th out of 51 high schools. Still, a B-grade is better than where the high school stood at the beginning of the last decade. From 2003-06, the BCHS was labeled a C-school. It hovered between C and D status through 2010 before jumping from a Dtime in 2011. The measure keeping Baker High from becoming an A-ratschool grading began in 1999 is the share of the lowest performing students making gains in math. To receive the top mark from the state, high schools must have more than half of the bottom 25 percent of students make im provements from the previous year in math and reading. Here 61 percent of the bottom quartile did so in reading, but only 37 percent did so in math. Mr. Hill said after reviewing data related to FCAT 2.0 performance last July, several reforms were instituted to help boost math scores at the school. He said intensive math tutoring began over the summer and into this school year for incoming 9th graders whose scores in eighth grade pointed to a need for extra help. In an effort to boost performance on geometry and algebra, end-of-course exams were also started this year. Mr. Hill said he and the schools math teachers pull students out of their reguness on past exams, like solving equations or making distance measurements for instance. Mr. Hill gave students and teachers much of the credit for the upswing in the schools grade in recent years. To make further progress, from other high schools, including those from highly successful districts, will meet next month to trade strategies about whats working in their respective schools. I long for the day we have an A, said Mr. Hill. changed each Monday morning, he said, adding that the current policy causes too many problems.

Hopefully, he said, the new policy and procedures will correct some past misunderstandings that may have created bitter feelings. There has been a little distrust with the way things have been done, he said. Theres been a perception of favoritism. Commission Chairman Jim my Anderson suggested posting a schedule of ball park availability on the countys website to let open. He said he felt that most people will schedule for an hour or so and work together to avoid Its a work in progress, Mr. Anderson said of the new policy. But its a start.

Crawford and Staff An Alabama truck driver who ran a red light in downtown Macclenny in June, 2011, killing a man who was here for his fathers funeral, was sentenced in circuit court on December 17 in prison. Amos Roger Smith Jr., 36, will be on drug offender probation ten years after release and Judge Mark Moseley imposed other sanctions on him as well during that post-prison period. Mr. Smith gets credit for 673 days he has been in jail since his arrest for vehicular manslaughter. Court records show that the defendant was released from Shands Jacksonville (now UF Florida Health) after a one-day treatment for depression, and at the time of the accident he had the anti-anxiety drug Ativan in his blood stream. He admitted to missing a turn off US 90 in Baldwin when he was supposed to fuel up before making the trip to Douglas, GA to pick up freight and said he was unfamiliar with the Macclenny area. Mr. Smiths westbound 2005 Volvo tractor pulling an empty trailer slammed into the side of a car going north on Lowder St. at the US 90 intersection, killing North Dakota. The victim died at the scene. Chevrolet driven by his 73-yearold mother, who was injured. Her husband died several days earlier and his funeral was the day before the accident. The defendant, who also has a Selma, AL address and who was divorced by his wife while incarof community service each year of probation, including speaking to professional drivers. The Navy veteran has a record that includes convictions for assault, drunk driving and worthless checks. The judge ordered a pre-sentence investigation after Mr. Smith pleaded guilty in early November, delaying disposition until last week. A county deputy who answered several disturbance calls at the same west Macclenny address during the early morning hours of December 21 arrested the person allegedly responsible for them on his third visit. Darrin Gibbons, 26, was on the porch of a residence next to his on Rock Court when Deputy Brandon Kiser arrived about 5 am, and was then involved in an argument with Willie Graham, 53. Mr. Graham said the suspect arrived earlier and awakened everyone at the residence while threatening him with a knife. knives he claimed to have taken from the suspect, who was arrested for disorderly conduct. Mr. Graham refused to sign a statement on the alleged aggravated assault, and said he did not want Mr. Gibbons prosecuted.

Sara Hilliard and Cheyenne Thrift, both of Macclenny, and Sheila Coren of St. George, GA were this years winners of The Press Christmas short story contest and are now $50 richer. 19 and up division, Ms. Hilliard won top honors in the 14-18 division and Ms. Thrift won in the 13 and under division. The authors and their winning stories are featured below. Ms. Thrifts A Miracle to Remember This story is about a boy that is seventeen and his name is Matt Stocks. His life was wonderful year that his dad and six month old sister disappeared. He does not remember that much about them. He has asked about them but his mom keeps avoiding it. All he wants to know is where his sister and dad are! Chapter 1 The Bad Start Matt clean out the attic its been a month! his mom yelled. And dont forget your jacket! Mom do you see the snow out there? he yelled. His mom didnt answer and he didnt see the point of yelling any longer. He grabbed his jacket, snow shoes and a duster. He went outside and to the attic door then opened it. He walked inside with dust all over him. So he cleaned from box to box and corner to corner. Then when he reached the second to last box and he saw many pictures, but only two caught his eye. It was a picture of him, his mom (who looked like she was going to have a baby soon) and his dad. The other picture was just of him and his mom. A tear came to his eye. He ran out the door and into the house. The snow was super deep. It was almost to the window, so he had a lot on his shoes. Chapter 2 The Short Talk Before Christmas After he came back in the house his mom said, It didnt take you long to clean our the attic. Well, Matt started, I found these pictures, do you remember them? His mom almost fell when she sat down. Yes ... yes I do, she whispered. Well can you tell me my sisters name? he asked. Martha. Martha May Stocks, she said still staring at the two pictures. Matt was amazed, he did not think his mom would tell him. What did she like to do? he asked. She liked her rattle and ... and she asked. Yes, I really did, he said fast. He walked away, to the stairs, looked out the window and saw about three feet of snow. Matt kept on walking to his room and slammed the door. His mom heard the slam and dropped the pictures. She felt bad, but she knew that she couldnt bare the truth. Chapter 3 The Delivering Santa Matt heard the doorbell, but he did not think much about it. Then his mom yelled, Matt, I need you to come here now! He wondered what she wanted. He came down the stairs and heard his mom talking to someone. He started running down the stairs hoping it was his dad or sister. But when he got to the bottom of the staircase, it wasnt his dad, his sister or even Santa. It was the UPS man sitting inside with a cup of coffee on the couch. He look out the window again, and saw the neighbors and their kids and kept walking to the couch. Yes? he said. This man has a package for you ... and thank you for my Christmas tree, she said very fast. The man handed him the package and kept on talking to his mom. Matt signed for the step of the stairs. He tore the tape off, just as the UPS man got up and went to the door. His mom told him goodbye and thank you and then shut the door. Matt put that package down and help your mother with this tree! she yelled. All Matt aw was the ornaments, a tree and an angel. So they got the tree out of the package and set it up. In three min on the tree. He picked up this it. It read, Free Cruise to Hawaii he thought. Mom we should go on this cruise, Matt said. She turned around and said, That is your Christmas present. Matt really liked it. Thank you, he said as he hugged his mom. She smiled and said, I have our bags packed and everything Matt said, as he looked at his package, What about my package? She looked at him and left. Chapter 5 The Christmas Cruise Matts mom got everything in the SUV and yelled, Come on Matt hurry up! Matt looked at his package, locked the door, and walked to the SUV. He looked around, now the kids at the houses next door were making snow angels. He sat in the passenger seat and shut the door. His mom started the SUV and pulled out of the driveway. In three hours they were at the cruise ship. People were everywhere. It took Matt and his mom 30 minutes just to get on the ship! Now Matt, mom said, I dont want you swimming on this cruise, you will get sick! Matt knew better but said, Yes mom, can I explore mom nodded her head yes and walked to the desk. Chapter 6 The Best Present Ever Matt looked around and there were people everywhere on the ship. But there were two people in the crowd that really caught his eye. A man, who looked somewhat familiar, and a little girl who looked to be about three or four years old. Matt saw his mom run up and hug the man. He walked towards the three of them. Is he an old friend? Matt asked when he reached them. His mom was crying re ally hard and said, No, Matt. This is your father. Sean Wyatt Stocks and your sister Martha May. Hi son, Matts dad said and gave Matt the biggest hug he had ever had. Matt could not be lieve his eyes. Hi, dad, he said through all the tears. Bubba Martha said. Matts dad said, I will never leave you again. Matt believed his dad. Matt asked his mom, What was in my pack age? He dad replied ... That was a letter from me and your sister letting you know we would be on this cruise. A huge smile came across Matts face. This is the greatest Christmas I have ever had. Then they walked towards the dinner room hand in hand as a real family. Untitled by Sara Hilliard: It was December 15, and Cara had no idea what to do for Christmas. They were living at the homeless shelter ever since her husband, Tom, had been laid off. Tom had luckily found employ ment at the gas station in town, while Cara worked part-time at the local dollar tree. Their son, Joshua, and daughter, Felicity, were too young to understand the situation they were in. Joshua was in the second grade and Felicity in the first. Tom and Cara made barely enough to clothe themselves and their children, and fortunately food was provided by the shelter. Cara really wanted her children to have good Christmas since they both strongly believed in Santa. Tom worked 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Cara worked from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., just enough time to drop off and pick up her children from school in their ratty old station wagon from 1995, which was barely running. Tom didnt see the children much except on the weekends, and he was more stressed each and evHis boss knew his situation and did his best to give Tom his childrens old clothes and days off to spend with his family. Cara was the main caretaker of the children and she was becoming tired of having to discipline them without their father hardly around. Not to mention the tiny room with two beds they all had to share, and a public rest room to bath and use the toilet that was shared with 196 other people. The stress and space was wear ing them all down. Cara had picked up some stockings from her work and brought them home to hang up, including glitter glue to write their names on, so the children could have a fun activity to keep them busy. and a couch? asked Felicity. Well honey, God has blessed us with this room and its what we have for now, replied Cara. Well I dont like it. Felicity was always the child to question and complain, os Joshua tried to shush her. I want a big tree and a lot of presents underneath, like they show in the pictures as school. We will soon honey. All Cara could do was reassure her child that they will have it all someday. Cara brought this incident up to Tom at dinner that night. Well I have some extra tips we could use to go get a tree, suggested Tom. We need that money for presents, Cara argued. We have enough money saved up in the bank to get them some presents, but you cant have presents without a tree. Felicity is right, we all want one. Alright. Cara gave in. The next day, Cara and Tom took off work to take their children to the tree farm. A worker there had noticed how excited their children were for a tree, when for most children its something so usual and ritual-like. He also overheard Cara and Tom arguing as Cara exclaimed, These trees are too expensive. $60? Thats at least two presents for each of them! Well Cara, I dont know what you want me to do. We can get them some presents on sale, even if just one, but these children want a Christmas tree, and that will lighten the room up. Really all Tom wanted too was a Christmas tree. Sir, miss, we have some discount trees over here? the worker said, trying to offer some help. Oh. Thank you very much. Cmon kids. Cara was embar rassed to have to look at the discount trees and have the worker overhear her argument with Tom, but at least it will save them some money for presents. They found the perfect sized tree at $20 and took it to the shelter. The worker noticed how excited Joshua and Felicity were just to get a simple tree. He took their situation into consideration. Im so happy, a tree! Felicity exclaimed. I know! A real one! Joshua added. Hold on one sec. Tom pulled up at the discount store and ran inside. He came out with a box of lights, tinsel, some plastic ball ornaments, plus plastic cups and hot chocolate. Cara eyed him. 0 dollars, he said. Cara gave him a smile. and Tom had managed to get each of their children two presents and some needed items for their stockings. Joshua would receive a nerf gun and a Spiderman suit. Felicity would get a pair of PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Christmas short story contest winners (l-r) Cheyenne Thrift, Sheila Coren and Sara Hilliard.Three submit top Yule storiessparkled boots, the ones shes been begging for, and a Barbie. Tom got his hands on a necklace for Cara, and Cara happened to have a new watch for Tom. They thought they did pretty good. Time for dinner, lets head to the dining hall! Tom called, even though there was barely 20 feet between him and his family. They all ran to the hall. Tom had hidden all the presents in the tiny closet, and Cara had hidden Toms watch in her pair of extra ratty shoes she kept just in case. They all ate merrily, ready for the morning. It was almost 8 p.m. when they got back to the room. When they opened the door everyone gasped. Oh ... my ... goodness ... Cara was breathless. Tom stood there. Joshua ran in and Felicity had a smile a mile wide. There were presents everywhere. All under the tree, coming out of the closet, under the beds, and the stockings were stuffed to the rim, including Tom and Caras. Who did this? questioned Tom. Santa!! yelled Joshua. He was right. Cara pulled off a sign on the wall that said From San ta, Merry Christmas. I dont know what to say, Cara cried. Tears were rolling down her cheeks. They entered the room, and barely shut the door. Lets all go to bed so we can open these in the morning, Tom said quietly. The children woke Tom and Cara at 6 a.m. that morning, but they didnt mind. They were ready to see this too. They divided the presents into piles, and all tore them open. One by one they discovered the treasures. A Tonka truck, a G.I. Joe doll, a baby doll, clothes, shoes, headbands, socks, an electric keyboard, slip pers, hair products, makeup, candy. Cara and Tom cried, and the kids were ecstatic. I think we all need to pray and thank God for Santa and his presents, Cara said softly. So they did. Cara and Tom stepped outside, I cannot believe this Tom. Me either. I am so thankful, I dont know who couldve done this, Tom pronounced. It doesnt matter. Our children our happy and so are we, Cara smiled. They embraced and exchanged presents, and all the while the Christmas tree worker was watching, smiling. story from this years contest, A Christmas Wish List by Ms. Coren, please visit www.bakercountypress.com.

The team was on the losing side of yet another of action when the visiting Yulee Lady Hornets Lady Cats trailed by 10 points midway through the third quarter, but rallied back with a 16-3 run remaining. Yulee regained the lead shortly after and held on by a two-point margin until there was about a minute left of the game. Delicia Washington tied it up for the Lady Cats off her ninth steal of points with 53 seconds left. But the Lady Hornets answered right back to take the lead and held off BCHS to secure the victory. Baker Countys defense kept it in the game as they forced Yulee to commit almost 30 turnovers, but the Lady Hornets three-point shooting prowess was too much for the young Lady Wildcats to overcome. The loss to Yulee came two days after the girls Parker. quarter, but the Lady Cats scored just one point in both the second and third quarters to insure that Terry Parker would maintain a commanding lead. The usual high-scoring Washington managed ala Pigott and Abby Rice led the team with eight points each.

PHOTO BY JUD JOHNSON Kasey Alford PHOTO BY JUD JOHNSON Maddy Perry PHOTO BY JUD JOHNSON Glenna Kaye GodwinLady liers end season with two key winsNo more Tony Romo to kick around, at least for the remainder of this year. Romo, the Dallas Cowboy quarterback who has been blamed for the team going belly up in the playoffs the last few years with late interceptions, is out for the remainder of the season with a herniated disc suffered against the Redskins on Sunday. As someone who has had a herniated disc and the surgery that went with it, I dont wish that on anyone and certainly not Romo. But as the Cowboys prepare for the playoffs, they will have to do without their $100 million quarterback and rely on backup Kyle Orton, the journeyman signal caller who played at Chicago and Denver. If Orton leads them far into the playoffs, it could make for some interesting post-season talking points. longtime center Brad Meester got in his final home game with the Jaguars. He got to run on the field alone to the cheers of the crowd. But even better than that, he got to catch a pass. Meester was ruled eligible and moved to tight end. Chad Henne tossed him a screen pass and he made 9 yards and a first down. The thing that ran through my head was, Dont drop the ball, said Meester. Unlike most Jaguar receivers, he actually caught it. It was a real highlight to a losing effort against the Titans. meat of the bowl season so heres my pick of the BCS games. Baylor (sic em Bears) over UCF in the Fiesta 58-35 in a defensive slugfest. Stanford over Michigan State really will be a slugfest with the best defensive line in the Big Ten up against the best offensive line in college football. Forget the skill players, watch what happens in the trenches. Ohio State narrowly edges Bowl. I would like to see both these teams lose. Alabama over Oklahoma 28game I wish both teams could lose. Finally, Florida State over Auburn 35-21 in the national title game. The Tigers are good but the FSU offense is too explosive and the defense too stifling. Go Noles.

JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comThe Jacksonville Jaguars still have a long way to go before they be come a playoff team, but one piece of the puzzle they already have in place for future success is head coach Gus Bradley. The coaching job hes done this year is nothing short of amazing. Hes taken a group that was made mostly of Gene Smith busts, castoffs and no-names and has turned them into a competitive team that has like one of the worst teams in NFL history when they sat at 0-8, Bradleys inspirational coaching continued to give the team energy to fight through the second half of the season. Even though the Jags lost 20-16 in their home finale to the hated Tennessee Titans, the team has posted a winning record since the bye week and has fought hard each game. The players continuing to buy into the philosophy despite the overall losing record is a surefire sign of good coaching. The loss to the Titans may have been Bradleys most impressive coaching performance yet, even if the team fell to 1-7 at home for the second consecutive season. The Jaguars fielded a team that has been ravaged by injuries and still had a chance to win until quarterback Chad Henne threw the game-sealing pick late in the game. But Bradleys creative use of a challenge when the defense needed a break to catch their breath may have been his most genius yet. The Titans held the 20-16 lead and were trying to close out the game by running the ball to waste the clock. Jacksonvilles defense was obviously gassed and were getting gashed by Shonn Greene and Chris Johnson on the ground. The Jaguars defense allowed a close third-down con version that allowed the clock to keep ticking. It was questionable if the Titans would pass the first-down marker, so Bradley challenged the spot of the ball. It was a brilliant move for two reasons. The first, and obvious, reason was that if overturned then it would have forced Tennessee to punt the ball and give the Jaguars the ball back. The other was that it gave the exhausted defenders longer to catch their breaths. The Jaguars defense had several minutes to get their wind back due to the play getting challenged instead of the usual 30 seconds timeouts bring. Although the call was upheld, the extra time to rest proved to be beneficial as the defense stepped up and stopped the Titans rushing game to give the home team a chance to win. Bradley is a smart and enthusiastic coach who has brought a new energy to the franchise and fanbase. He gets the most out of his players even when they dont have anything to play for but pride. If Bradley can get this kind of effort out of this years incarnation of the Jaguars, its going to be fun watching them when they finally have the talent on the field to match the talent on the sideline.

Chesters owner, Ashley Avinger, submitted the winning photo, which she took at home in November. And no, he didnt mind wearing the costume at all, Ms. Avinger said by e-mail. Coming in second place was a 1-month-old cocker spaniel male named Cowboy with 155 votes. He belongs to Rachel Hodgson of Glen ment that reads I believe in Santa. Another pet who was dressed up for the competition, an English bulldog named Herschel, was not so agreeable. His owner Laura Williams of Macclenny said by e-mail he absolutely hated the reindeer antlers placed on his head. I had to hold a piece of ham to keep him still. Afterwards, he grabbed the antlers and destroyed them, said Ms. Williams e-mail. Ha, ha! Herschel got 112 votes. One of the more unusual photos in the competition came from Christopher Brown of Brown Dynasty Alpacas in Glen St. Mary. His photo of a dressed up alpaca named Kuzma, which Mr. Brown said means Charles in Russian, was taken at his farm in October. It received 22 votes. Kuzma, who turned 1 year old that month, was draped with a scarf made from alpaca fur. He wasnt thrilled, but he probably would have been happier if it was say in the 30s that day! said Mr. Brown by e-mail.
