Even with the new system some rooms in the courthouse including a computer room and others used by the State Attor to be served by several smaller units, which would cost an ad ditional $65,000 to replace, ofworkshop that begin at 3:30 pm on January 21. The only other option, which was rejected, was to replace existing equipment at a cost of $262,000. However, the equipment would only have a 15year life expectancy, so the total cost over 30 years would be $524,000. I like the 30-year plan, said Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson, a commercial roofer who works closely with air-conditioning contractors. A chilled water system will be easier to maintain and light bills are go ing to be lower. We need to investigate going that route. The existing air-conditioning system was installed about 15 years ago, using Trane equip ment and remains under a service contract with that company. Walt Herndon, a Trane account manager, discussed the options with board members and said the company agreed to extend its service agreement this year Board recties secret ballot vote with public disclosureSee page 7Record reader at BCHS touted for Literacy WeekSee page 8Wildcats fanatic honored at half-time of basketball gameSee page 12 bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll. ONLINE POLL RESUL TS What are your expectations for the Wildcats rst football season under new head coach Tom MacPherson?26% Winning record 2 4% Post season play 15% District title 35% None of the above JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Wildcats have found their man. Baker County High School announced former Ridgeview head coach Tom MacPherson as the new Wildcat head football coach on January 15 after narrowing the field down from almost 70 applicants. His ability to make a difference in the lives of young men was very evident throughout this process, said BCHS principal Tom Hill. His tenure as head coach at his previous school was definitely better than most applicants. The number of playoff appearances for his previous teams was also impressive. Mr. MacPherson, a former St. Johns University wide receiver, leaves behind a Ridgeview program he built from the ground up and guided to success since its inception into the FHSAA in 1999. He led the Panthers to the playoffs in eight of his 15 seasons at the school and finished his tenure there with a 72-78 overall record. He posted a career-best 9-1 record in 2012, a few years after coaching Ridgeview to the third round of the State Playoffs in 2008. Hes the real deal, said BCHS Activities and Athletic Director Melody Coggin. Hes a dynasty builder, not a resume builder. In fact, he didnt even have a resume to submit when he initially applied for his new position; he had to put one together to send in prior to his first interview in 15 years. But the dilution of talent in Clay County was making it more difficult for Coach MacPherson to compete on a yearly basis at Ridgeview. Clay Countys talent was split six different ways, he said, with six high schools within 10 minutes of each other and Ridgeviews Tom MacPhersonNew Cat grid coach hired from Ridgeview FILE PHOTO The county courthouses HVAC system is ending its useful life after 13 years.

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA Quinnipiac poll found last November that 82 percent of Floridians supported medical marijuana. But a signature collector working in Macclenny last week saw much less support for the issue here. Though she would not identify herself, she said she was gather ing signatures for placing a referendum on medial marijuana on this Novembers ballot and this congressional district was short on its total. She revealed she was being paid for her efforts, she resides in the Tampa area and shes a stay-athome mom when shes not helping with petition drives, something shes done for the last 20 years. Im not hearing 82 percent of the people I stop saying they want to sign, she said. The women estimated only about one in five per sons she approached outside the county tax collectors office on January 17 chose to support the medical marijuana ballot initiative. After she and others working on the campaign were thrown out of other private properties here, including Walmart and Walgreens, and hearing she wasnt welcome at the tax office either, the woman said the real issue of the day was not medical marijuana but freedom of speech and the right of citizens to petition their government. The ladies in the tag office have been giving me a bunch of crap, she said, adding later, ... As Americans, were are losing our freedom. In different counties you cant even be at the tag offices. In Orange County they kick you out of libraries. Still, she stood her ground and continued to solicit signatures from a small fold-out table and stool about 15 feet from the entrance to the tax collectors office.

Page3JANUARY 23, 2014 Page 2 T B C P ursday, January 23, 2014It took Flipper turning up dead, but Florida appears primed to pass much-needed water resource protection measures this ses sion. Baker Countys own state senator, Charlie Dean, mentioned it during his stop here last October, saying it will a major focus for him during the 2014 legislative session. Its not the first time Sen. Dean has tried to tackle the issue, however. Hes pushed for tighter regulations on septic systems, which experts say are contributing to the states water quality woes. Of course there are other culprits too. Theres fertilizers used in agriculture industry and by residents who must have the greenest, lushest yard on the block, poor drainage infrastructure that washes storm water runoff into the natural environment after it picks up all the garbage we leave behind, plus sewage treatment plant discharges into water bodies. Together they dramatically increase nutrient levels in the groundwater, which feed algae that in turn kill plant and wildlife. But regardless, Sen. Dean has a heart for water issues and should be commended for it. He wants to leave Florida a better place than he found it, or at least better than it is today. Now, it looks like the rest of the Florida Legislature and the governor is on board with him. A senate select committee formed over the summer to investigate die-offs of manatees, dolphins, pelicans and the sea grass in the Indian River Lagoon system along the east coast of the state. Its recommended the state spend $220 million on water quality and water storage projects to address the problem. The governor announced this week some $55 million in his budget recommendations for springs protection projects. He and others in top leadership positions are finally seeing that the states economy and its environment will live and die together. The Florida Association of Counties, not surprisingly, is also in favor of water resource protection measures and the funding to make them happen. Counties surely realize that their water supply isnt just theirs. Its a shared resource we must all work to protect, lest we go the way of those mammals in the lagoon. Its a shame they had to perish for the state to take action, though. Weve seen similar algae blooms and fish kills in Northeast Florida for the past three years with little or no change in water policy. The state and various industry groups have spent that time battling the EPA over how much nutrient load in our water is too much. Locally its the St. Marys River Water Management Committee that serves as the watchdog for water quality issues around here. Unfortunately, the committee, which meets monthly in Callahan with representatives from Baker, Nassau, Camden and Charlton counties, sees little in the way of support, either from state and local governments or the residents in those communities. There are a few who carry on the good fight, but there could always be more. And it just so happens the annual river clean up is less than two months away in March. If you cant lend a hand, maybe just call your or e-mail our state leaders to tell them theyre on the right track with this water stuff. As I write this column, my washing machine to remove a coffee stain. The stain was fates way of putting an exclamation point on something I talked about to my college speech class intrapersonal communication, or how we communicate with ourselves and view the person that we are. Our image of who we are in this big old world has a lot to do with how we are able to communicate with others. How we view ourselves and the way others view us are not always the same thing. I often ask students to close their eyes and picture them selves standing in front of a full length mirror in their underwear. You may want to try that. I ask them to be as objec tive as they can in picturing what they see and then have them open up their eyes. As objective as they attempt ed to be when looking at them selves, chances are they either thought they looked better or probably worse than they really do. Another example: Have you ever heard your voice on a tape recorder? I imagine a collective groan went out from my readers when they read that sentence. I feel the same way. As much as we hate the sound of our voice on tape, that is the way the rest of the world hears you. Yep thats your actual voice. Awful isnt it? However, the people who listen to us dont think so because thats the way they hear us every day. The reason is simple. We dont hear the sound coming out of our mouths when we talk. We hear the sound waves bouncing around inside of our sinus cavities and it sounds completely different banging around in there between our ears. But were used to it and so thats the way we think we sound. Similarly, our view of how we look is skewed. We base our vision of ourselves upon all sorts of things past experiences, how we feel that day, what were wearing and the way other people treat us. Sometimes it changes from day to day. Ladies will understand this next part clearly; guys, not so much. Ill illustrate with a phrase that resonates with every lady who reads it. Bad Hair Day! Every woman reading this is shaking her head. If you are having a bad hair day it doesnt matter that you woke up rested and feeling great, that its sunny and 72 degrees. The day There are two kinds of bad you know from the start its going to happen. No matter what you try in your vast bag of hairstyling tricks works and 30 minutes later it looks just as bad as when you started. Thats bad, but you can plan for it. The second level is the one that catches you by surprise. It looks great, you feel good and the minute that you walk out the door the 100 percent the time you get to the car. A bad hair day makes us feel awful about how we look and a good hair day signals a good start to the day. So, if youre having a Bad Hair Day it colors the rest of the day for us and makes you very self-conscious. Probably no one notices but you. Most of us are much harder on ourselves than are others. Most of us dont have a bully following us around telling us that were fat and our mama dresses us funny. But that doesnt matter a lot of times. We do it to ourselves. We remember all the stupid little things that happened to embarrass us, like when we wore white and fell in the mud. We remember when we went to a party and dressed completely inappropriately like the scene from Legally Blonde where the girl thinks its a costume party and goes dressed as a Playboy Bunny. Most people forget and forthem. Which brings me back to my shirt and fate. I took a big sip of coffee and spilled half of it on my shirt. At age 17, I my day ruined. At my current advanced age, I looked at it, smiled and said, Think of that as todays visual aid. I hope you all have a week of Good Hair Days. LIKE US ONFA CEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSIONN ew face leading Wildcat footballThe high school unveiled the name of its new head football coach last week in Tom MacPherson. We looked to Face book, of course, to gauge how readers felt about the new face on the football eld. We asked, What are your thoughts on the BCHS Wildcats new football coach Tom McPherson? What do you think he needs to focus on during the spring practice? Heres a look at the responses: Jerome Reimer Jr.: Making sure he grabs the right debit card when purchasing alcohol! Thomas Smith: Have yall seen his football career record? Its like 78-71 or close. He has lost more then he has won. I think the people doing the interviews for the hiring should know what a rst down is rst. Chris Crews: The best thing he can do is somehow, someway miraculously get Joey Sulkowski to stay and run the oense and keep the defensive sta intact. Nothing needs to be built. The system is already in place. Coach Bobby [Johns] and Coach Ryan [Sulkowski] already laid the foundation. If hes smart he will not try to implement new schemes when these players have already been in a solid winning system, but adapt his own coaching style to what we have. Eddie Davis Sr.: Football. Debi Tisdel Doyle: If they believe in him enough to hire him, give him free reign to do his job without ridicule. Allow him to build the team with his ex perience and methods, no give mes. Aaron Scott: Its not whether the school likes him; its whether The Press does. At least that is the lesson I took from recent events. And I speak as one who happens to really like The Press. They, um, fumbled on the last coach. Missy Curry-Wiliams: It sounds like he will t in. We all must keep an open mind. He has to build the program up rst. They are our team no matter what! Mike Williams: What happened to the old one? Build up the program? I thought it was already built up.Class supply lists needed before sales tax holidayWell, we queried our Facebook friends about Governor Rick Scotts proposal to expand the annual sales tax holiday. But what we heard back was aimed directly at the schools and getting out classroom supply lists in time for the tax holiday. Heres what they had to say: Leslie Wahlstrom Teeter: I wish we could get an accurate list of supplies from the schools that coincides with the tax holiday. Every year we buy general supplies (paper, pens, pencils, etc.) during the tax holiday and end up having to buy more stu cause its not whats listed. Talk about a waste of money and time! Robyn Stevens: I would just like it to be at a time when we know what the kids need for supplies. We do not re ceive the middle school or high school lists until open house which is well after the tax holiday. I try each year to guess and get the basics o what they needed the prior year but then Im stuck with school supplies they dont need and I have to go out and buy more.A pology for pow wow video right?Was the school districts decision to apologize for the pow wow video appropriate? we asked our friends. Gage Combs: Offended or not, it was done with good intentions. Apolo gize? Absolutely not. Missy Curry-Wiliams: I do not feel it was done to oend anyone, people nowadays are too quick to judge. It was done for preschoolers and has been for years so if any of the Native American people would like to participate they need to get in touch with the Kinder garten Center or History Club.

She said using marijuana for medical reasons should not be disregarded simply because of the m-word, or marijuana. Its not about recreational use at all, she said of the peti tion. In fact, when approaching would be signers, the woman would say, This is so if somebody has a debilitating disease like cancer or glaucoma they can get medical marijuana. But others, even two young men who signed the petition that day, say allowing mari juana use for medical reasons is the precursor to legalizing marijuana for recreational use as well. Colorado and Washington recently decriminalized the drug with various restrictions after first legalizing it as a medical treatment. Twenty states have medical marijuana laws on the books today, and adding Florida to the list would be a good idea, said the two young men who signed the petition and also asked not to be identified publicly. Even if it eventually leads to decriminalization in the Sunshine State. Ive heard good things, said one of them. Its positive ... If its taxed, thats more money that goes back into the community. And there may be less crime. According to a report in the Tampa Bay Times, the organization leading the ballot initiative, United for Care, garnered enough signatures by the middle of last week to get the issue on the November ballot. But additional signatures were being gathered in the Jacksonville area to surpass a requirement that the referen dum have support from a spe cific share of registered voters in at least 14 of the states 27 Congressional districts, the Times reported. The signature collector at the tax collectors office said District 4, represented by An der Crenshaw (R), didnt have enough names yet so the petition drive continued here and elsewhere in the district. The state Division of Elections is expected to certify the petition count by February 1. The Florida Supreme Court must also approve the actual language to be placed on the ballot. Should the proposed language, which Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has argued is too confusing and violates the states single subject re quirement, be struck down by the high court, then the petition signatures will be invalid. That could mean the ballot amendment is delayed until the next election cycle in 2016. The ballot amendment, if passed by at least 60 percent of Florida voters, would allow the purchase of marijuana from state-regulated dispensaries provided its prescribed by a doctor for medical reasons. The amendment would not legalize growing marijuana for medical uses, the Tampa Bay Times re port pointed out. F rom page 1Scant support for medicinal pot ALL-SAFE MINI STORAGE190 S.

Deputy Trey McCullough said he recognized the face on the youth while questioning him and three others who ran from the store when confronted by a security worker shortly after 3 am. He stopped them as they appeared to be leaving with a shopping cart full of electronic merchandise. Neither the boy, nor a 13-year-old male, a 14-year-old female or Timekia Robinson, 35, were charged with the offense because they did not exit the store. Surveillance footage of the 16-year-old was still available, however, and shows him reaching through the counter and concealing the iPad before exiting.

She denied the allegation when Deputy Marc Heath showed up at her Barber Loop residence later that day. a complaint for tearing the tag off a $5 pair of childs sunglasses the same afternoon, then allowing her young son to leave the store with them on. Deputy Heath was also informed by store security that Ms. Conti allegedly was caught via surveillance video in December placing items in a shopping bag that had not been scanned at the self-checkout. She later paid for the merchandise after tell ing police she was unaware they hadnt been scanned. A man who went to Macclenny Elementary with his live-in girlfriend to enroll their child has been named in a complaint for steal ing the wallet of a school employee from a purse under her desk.

If any of the existing conventional units burn out and need to be replaced this year, Mr. Herndon said, the expense will be absorbed by Trane. Our goal is to maintain it so that (equipment failure) doesnt happen, he said. A chilled water system, which uses refrigerant to produce ice at night and gradually releases cold water through pipes during working hours to cool the buildconventional compressors and air handlers that send expensive refrigerant throughout the piping. Right now, were pushing refrigerant, Mr. Herndon said. What we want to push is water. County Manager C.J. Thompson said a 70-ton chilled water system would require more upfront expense, but there would be the potential for longer term savings. At the current age of the existing HVAC equipment, Mr. Thompson said, its subject to start breaking. Mr. Anderson said it makes sense to install the best equip ment that will last the longest heating and cooling. The temperature inside the building will be better controlled and mold wont be an issue any more, said Mr. Anderson, prompting Court Clerk Al Fraser to interject a comment about mold. Weve never had a problem, but we have had some mold in the past, Mr. Fraser said. What were trying to do is prevent a serious mold problem that he said is mainly limited to one area on the west side of the building. Mr. Herndon said that not only do chilled water systems last twice as long as conven tional equipment, but they also significantly reduce energy costs. He estimated the annual electric bill at the courthouse would be about $5,600 less with a chilled water system, or about one months payment to Florida Power & Light. Mr. Herndon further noted that a chiller system controls air cally reduce the humidity in the courthouse, where he agreed mold has been a problem. He said chilled water units are becoming increasingly popular with governmental agencies throughout Florida, particularly in public schools and colleges. All governmental entities are looking 30 years down the road, Mr. Herndon said, adding that most public schools south of Brevard County have gone to ice (chiller) systems as the only way to avoid killer electric bills. Commissioner Anderson said the countys been lucky with the air-conditioning equipment at the courthouse so far, but that luck could run out any day now. Weve been blessed with the 15 years weve gotten for as much as that building stays cooled, he said. ing air-conditioning upgrade when commissioners begin discussing the 2014-15 budget in the next few months. The existing HVAC equip ment at the courthouse was installed as part of a $5 million expansion and remodeling of the historic structure 15 years ago.

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comLow-income Baker County residents without the money or health insurance to pay for needed medical care now have a place to go. The Rural Health Clinic affiliated with Ed Fraser Memorial Hospital in Macclenny opened its doors on January 13 to eight patients who had made appointments, though walk-ins are welcomed, too. The clinic sits on the south end of the hospitals North 3rd Street campus. Kathleen Washburn, an advanced registered nurse practitioner, will see patients at the clinic with oversight from Dr. Jamal Salameh. Its open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 am to 7 pm, and on Wednesday and Saturday from 8 am to noon. The clinic is managed by Baker County Medical Services, a nonprofit organization which runs Fraser Hospital and its associated facilities including the Dopson Family Medical Center and W. Frank Wells Nursing Home. Dennis Markos, the nonprofits executive director, said the clinic aims to serve the uninsured but it will also take Medicare and Medicaid patents, including those under HMOs. Patients without health insurance may be referred to help signing up for coverage via the federal healthcare exchange, he said. Some of the uninsured may qualify for Medicaid coverage or government subsidies to buy private coverage offered through the exchange in Baker County from Florida Blue. Its the only insurer with plans available on the exchange for Baker County residents, but there are many to choose from. Still, because the state has refused to expand Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare, there are others who dont qualify for Medicaid and dont earn enough to qualify for government subsidies through the exchange, or about $11,500. There are nearly 1 million people in the state who fall within this coverage gap. The Affordable Care Act as passed included a mandatory expansion of Medicaid to adults up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level and cuts to the money hospitals receive for care of the uninsured, called uncompensated care. But since the Supreme Court ruled the expansion was op tional for the states, and Florida has chosen to decline some $51 billion in federal money over 10 years to fund nearly all of the expansion costs, hospitals here received the cuts in uncompensated care payments but not the additional federal funding from an expanded Medicaid program. The cuts to Ed Fraser Hospital totaled about $1.7 million, Mr. Markos said. If the state doesnt expand Medicaid, all well be doing is providing more charity care, he said. Nonetheless, providing care, whether uncompensated or not, is cheaper at the clinic. Mr. Markos said the purpose of the facility is to encourage uninsured patients with nonacute care needs like head aches and the flu to avoid accessing services through the emergency room, where care is the much more expensive. A lot of people come to the emergency room for things that are not really emergencies, he said, adding that real emergencies are things like cuts requir ing stitches and broken bones. Its much less expensive to treat them in this [clinic] environment, said Mr. Markos. In the emergency room, you have doctors 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You have backups of labs, X-ray and respiratory therapy around the clock. You are staffed 24/7. The clinic meanwhile has evening hours and weekend hours to accommodate patients work schedules, but its open just 44 hours per week. Ideally, opening a convenient walk-in clinic with primary care services for the indigent will encourage that population to visit more often and help them avoid more serious health problems that require hospital care. Hopefully we can keep them healthier by using this outpatient facility and primary care, Mr. Markos said. If they come continuously to have their health updated, you minimize those acute episodes and hopefully reduce the cost of care while providing more care. Thats the goal anyway with a rural health clinic. The 5000 square-foot clinics grand opening took place on January 16 with a social gathering and ribbon cutting ceremony that included fellow Chamber of Commerce mem bers early that evening. It took contractor Dana B. Kenyon Company of Jackson ville nearly a year to build the clinic, which was funded by Baker County Medical Services without any outside money, Mr. Markos said. He estimated the total cost at nearly $1 million. This is for real basic primary care for people who dont have a family physician, primarily for those who dont have insurance and the county indi gent since we have the indigent care responsibility, said Mr. Markos. They can come here and get primary medicine on a sliding-fee scale based on in come. Please visit www.baker countypress.com to see video from the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Only this time commissioners voted audibly, rather than anonymously as they did on two separate secret ballots that ended in a 2-2 tie, which was broken by a coin toss won by Mr. Horne over former county commissioner Alex Robinson. Mr. Horne works as a landscaper and substitute teacher. Hes the grandson of former county commissioner O.C. Horne. There was no second coin toss at the January 14 board was conducted openly, unlike the votes which were not recorded in violation of Floridas Government in the Sunshine Law. Mayor Gary Dopson, who spoke in a raspy voice and had a cough, apologized for the way the appointment was handled but insisted there had been no intentional skirting of the Sunshine Law. I wouldnt be here tonight if we didnt need to rectify the unintentional results of the December 20 board meeting, said Dr. Dopson, adding that he was sick and on medication. He then turned to City Attorney Frank Maloney to explain the situation. Mr. Maloney, who conducted the apthat broke the tie, said that after The Press brought to our attention that there may have been a Sunshine Law violation he researched the issue. After reading Florida Supreme Court rulings and two attorney generals opinions on Sunshine Law issues, he said he concluded that there may have been a technical violation. He then told commissioners that to be 00 percent correct they would have to reafcord, each one stating for whom he had voted. the vote, will make it sunshine bright, Mr. Maloney said. Thats the language of the Supreme Court. Mayor Dopson then called for memorialization of the vote, after which he and Commissioner Mark Bryant said they had voted both times for Mr. Horne, while Commissioners Vern Bennett and Sam Kitching said they had cast their two ballots in favor of Mr. Robinson. Mr. Kitching said he viewed the situation as one the city could only win because both I felt like we could not lose and we have an excellent commissioner, said Mr. Kitching, who only joined the commission himself a few months ago and is seated next to Mr. Horne. The Sunshine Law was enacted by the Florida Legislature in 1967 and is embodied in Chapter 286 of the Florida Statutes, which establish a basic right of access to most meetings of boards, commissions and other governing bodies of state and local governmental agencies or authorities. In addition to ensuring that governmental bodies conduct ent manner in public meetings that have been duly advertised in local newspapers, the law also requires records be kept so citizens may review In this case, however, commissioners committed the biggest infraction of the law by failing to sign their written ballots, which Mayor Dopson, who has been a member of the city commission for about a quarter of a century, said was a regretful oversight. The public had every right to know how each commissioner voted, he said. We should have signed the ballots that night. I take part of the blame for that and I blame the city attorney for not advising the board. But for whatever reason it slipped my mind. That will never happen again, I can tell you that. And I dont think its ever happened before. There was absolutely no intent to break the Sunshine Law that night. When City Manager Phil Rhoden was noThe Press on January 2 he said he would consult with the city attorney and individual commissioners. Later that day, he disclosed the vote tally, which has since been made a matter of public record. Mr. Rhoden initially said he didnt think the Sunshine Law had been broken because a public vote would have been taken if anyone had questioned the procedure. Also, he said, cies in the past, including the appointment of B.J. Cannon in 2002. But the next day the city manager and the city attorney agreed that the commission had committed a technical, though unintentional, violation of the law. Knowingly breaking the Sunshine Law is a criminal offense punishable by up to 60 days Though the mayor partially blamed the city attorney for the embarrassing turn of events, Mr. Maloney did not acknowledge personal responsibility. Instead, he seemed to think the coin he tossed that night was the real culprit. The decision was made by a quarter, he said. missioner Kitching quipped. Thats right. The coin cannot be unand Adjustment Board has been decimated in the past year by city commission elections and appointments. Mr. Horne had to resign from the advisory panel to accept the commission appointment. Former Zoning and Adjustment Board chairman Dennis Collins resigned in November after losing a race for the commission and Mr. Robinson also has resigned. The trend started last April when Mr. Rhoden, a former commissioner, was hired as the new city manager and he was replaced by Mr. Bryant, who had chaired the zoning panel for years. At the recommendation of the citys zoning coordinator, Mike Walker, commissioners appointed a third member to the panel so it would have a quorum and be able to conduct meetings. Lynward Bones, who lives in Macclenny and works as a crane operator at AmeriSteel in Baldwin, will be installed as the newest member at the boards next zoning hearing on February 3. In other business last week commissioners: Department of Transportation calling for the state agency to install new electronic speed limit signs in the school zone on 5th Street (SR 228), at the intersections of Jonathan Street and South Boulevard.

These tasty legumes can be planted Janu ary to March in North Florida. English peas: Garden peas that must be shelled before eat ing are called English peas. There are many varieties to choose from and gardeners can succes sion plants by planting 3-4 varieties that require dif ferent lengths of time to ma ture. Dwarf varieties are also available and do not re quire a trellis for support. Peas should be picked in prime condition and eaten or pre served as soon as possible after harvest. Higher temperatures will cause peas to pass the edible stage more rapidly. Blanched and quickly frozen, they may be held in good condition for a year or more. Some good vari eties for Florida include Wan do and Green Arrow. Snow peas: Also called edible-podded peas or sugar peas, these varieties closely re semble the English pea in plant and growth characteristics ex cept that the pods are flatter, broader, more tender, and less fibrous. Entire pods, including the immature seeds, are eat en whole. Snow peas perform better under higher temperatures than the English pea, and are harvested before the seeds start to accumulate starch. Not only are snow peas cooked or stir-fried, they are also deli cious raw. The pods of Ore gon types are edible. Rec ommended varieties in clude Oregon Sugarpod and Dwarf Sugar. These edible-podded peas are soft and tender, but differ from snow peas in their round instead of flat pod shapes and thin pod walls. They are also so crisp, sweet, and succulent that they may be snapped into pieces and mixed into salads or eaten whole as an appetizer. They may also be stir-fried or steamed, and have a distinctive appearance and flavor. Snap peas perform better under higher temperatures than the English pea, and are harvested while tender. Ma ture pods (2 to 3 inches) re quire stringing, while over grown, fibrous pods should be shelled and combined with other more-tender edible pods. Recommended varieties in clude Sugar Rae, Sugar Bon, Sugar Ann, and Sugar Snap. Sugar Snap requires a trellis, reaching 4 to 6 feet.

Purchase this photo at www.bakercountypress.com Photos by Joel AddingtonEntries, participation scant for MLK parade The annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade through Macclenny was scaled way back this year. Parade organizer Tommy Rollins (pictured above) said a recent medical problem kept him from recreating the event of years past. Normally its held on the Friday preceding the MLK holiday and features a larger parade in the morning, complete with the high schools marching band and Junior ROTC students, and then lunch with guest speakers. This year the afternoon parade took place on MLK Day and consisted of a dozen or so youths on foot, bikes or ATVs, three sheris oce vehicles, a county EMS unit, a Macclenny re department engine and four private vehicles. It began and ended with little fanfare or mention of Dr. King. Mr. Rollins said next years event will be more like those in previous years. To view more photos and video from the parade, please visit www.baker JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comStevie Taylor of Macclenny loves a good story, and his li brary record proves it. The 17-year-old student athlete at Baker County High School holds the record for the most books checked out from the school library this school year at 35. He checked out 55 books the previous year and almost 100 since his freshman year. Mr. Taylor was recognized for his voracious appetite for reading during Literacy Week, which took place here and across the nation last week. He was highlighted on the bulletin board in the front office as student of the month. Some kids read just for AR points. He reads just to read, said BCHS media specialist and Press columnist Bob Gerard of Mr. Taylors reading habits. Mr. Taylor enjoys reading fiction, namely fantasy and western novels. I just like a good story, you know. I cant get into a bad story, and I have to get into the story to read it, he said. His favorite authors include New York Times best-selling author and fantasy novelist R.A. Salvatore and the late Louis LAmour, who penned fictional westerns among other works. Mr. Taylor, a high school senior, hopes to enlist in the Army and train as an intelligence analyst after graduation. I know Ill still be reading then though, said Mr. Taylor. Hed rather read hard copies of books instead of digital ver sions, though he will occasion ally read stories online. I like it better that way, he says. Mr. Taylor reads mostly in the mid-afternoon, but sometimes at night if Im really into it. Most of his books come from the high school library where the selections pretty good. They try their best to get what they can and I appreciate it, said the teen, who began practice with the weightlifting team this week.

Thanks so muchI would like to take a moment to thank two investigators with the Baker County Driggers and Chris Volz. They did an excellent job investigating the theft of my wallet last week. They were professional and caring during this upset ting ordeal, and promptly recovered it to restore my peace of mind. Thank you and God bless to all the men and women who serve and protect Baker County and its citizens every day.Tracy Wilford FROM STATEPOINTSPECIAL TO T H E PRESS Want to add interesting taste, texture and depth to your cooking?

Any support or objections may be heard at this time. players coming from four different middle schools. Now, with the Wildcats, he will have the chance to be the only show in town. I knew the history and tradition of Baker County and I knew the athletes that were out here, Coach MacPherson said. I knew they had one junior high and one high school and just thought this might be a pretty good place. Out here the little league kids and junior high kids are all coming to Baker County to be Wildcats, he said, and I think thats something pretty special. Mr. MacPherson said he plans on being involved with the middle school and little league programs in Baker County. He has already had lunch with BCMS head coach Rock Rhoden and plans on attending the Bobcats games. Having the continuity from the lower levels through the high school program is one of the reasons the Baker County position was so attractive because it means players will grow up learning his system. Those schemes include an up-tempo, no-huddle offense that resembles the likes of Clemson and Auburn. On defense, his teams run a 4-25 scheme, meaning they have five defensive backs, including three safeties, and two line backers in their standard formation to combat the spread offenses that have dominated football in recent years. He said hell fit his scheme to best suit his players, and hell have a better idea of what theyll be able to do once he starts teaching on January 27 and is able to analyze film with the coaching staff. Mr. MacPherson will teach physical education and team sports at BCHS. Obviously, Wildcats want to win, but more than winning, I hope he will make a positive difference in the lives of the students he teaches and coaches, said Mr. Hill. But as excited as he is to begin anew in Baker County, leav ing his program at Ridgeview behind was one of the most difficult decisions he has ever made, he said. One of the toughest three minutes of my life was that morning when I had to tell my kids [at Ridgeview] that I was leaving, Mr. MacPherson said. Ive been there for 15 years and Ive been loyal. At some point sooner or later in your career you have to make a decision on what you want to do and I just felt like this was the right time and that this was the right place. Still, Mr. MacPherson is looking forward to the new phase of his coaching career because of the communitys passion for the Wildcats. Everybody has been great to me so far, he said. It seems like a great place. Everybody loves their football and their athletics and they love their kids in Baker. The only guarantee is that Im going to work as hard as anybody who has ever worked here. Im going to coach these kids hard and love them as my own, and with the ones that stick it out, we can make some noise out here.

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker High Wildcats honored a special fan at last Fridays boys basketball game for her enthusiastic support of all things Wildcats. At halftime Kanon Gonzalez, 10, of Glen St. Mary was presented with a basketball signed by the team in addition to a signed T-shirt from the girls weight lifting team. They made my little girls night, said her father Gerald Gonzalez. He said when Kanon was younger, the noise at sporting events, and basketball games in particular with the loud buzzers between periods, alarmed her too much to attend games. Its only been in the last year that Kanons gone bananas for Wildcat sports. Mr. Gonzalez said she loves Wildcat football or basketball games. She is constantly asking when the next game will take place and reminding her family about her desire to be there. We dont know where this comes from, he said. This year, all of a sudden shes fine with it and she wont miss one game. Kanons enthusiasm hasnt gone unnoticed. Head basketball coach Charles Ruise, who presented Kanon with the signed team ball on January 17, said his Shes nuts over All Things Wildcat JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comCoach Charles Ruise Sr.s BCHS Wildcats extended their winning streak to nine games with blowout victories the past week over Terry Parker, Paxon and Clay to improve their overall record to 16-2 and remain a perfect 3-0 in District 3-5A play. Charles Ruise Jr.s team-high 30 points helped the Cats cruise by the visiting Clay Blue Devils with a 77-55 victory on January 18. The outcome of the game was never in doubt as Baker County went on a 14-4 run to close out 11 of his 17 points in the opening quar ter. The squad continued to control the game in the second quarter with a 12-3 run to open the second frame to lead by 21 at half time. The Cats stretched their lead to as much as 32 points in the third quarter before running the clock down offensively in the fourth to seal their ninth straight win. The win over Clay came one day later as double-doubles by Walton (18 points and 10 rebounds) and CeCe Jefferson (10 points and 18 rebounds) catapulted the Wildcats to a 67-50 home victory over the Paxon Golden another lopsided win in favor of the Cats, the Golden Eagles kept the game Paxons defense didnt allow Baker County any space in the opening minutes of the game as the Wildcats were not able to get their shots to fall, which allowed the visiting team to jump out to an early 8-3 lead. The Cats offense eventually found its rhythm near the to Ruise Jr. sparked a 25-7 run for second quarters to give the home team a 13-point half time advantage. The Golden Eagles tried to rally back after the break and pulled within four points of tying the game midway through the third quarter. The Cat offense responded with another big scoring run to pull away from Paxon and lead by 16 entering the fourth quarter. Paxon repeatedly sent the Wildcats to the free throw line in the fourth quarter to try to extend the game as a last-resort comeback attempt. Baker County was almost perfect from the charity stripe as the team sunk 12 of its 15 free throw attempts in the quarter to secure the victory. In addition to Walton and Jeffersons double-doubles, Ruise Jr. scored 15 points and the sharpshooting Jesse Gardner added 12. Three players reached double-digit scoring when the Wildcats topped the hosting Terry Parker Braves 56-46 on January 14. Ruise Jr. had a team-high 18 points, while Jefferson added 14 and Gardner scored 10. The Wildcats have just one district game before the district tournament begins on February 5, but its the most important game Baker County will play during the regular season. The Cats will host the defending district champion Bishop Kenny Crusaders (14-5, 4-0) on January 24. The outcome of the game will have a direct effect on the district-tournament seedings in February. A win for Baker County will allow them to be the tournaments top seed. But its not going to be easy for the Cats. The Crusaders are undefeated in clude a four-point defeat to Episcopal and a two-point loss against Trinity. Its going to be a tough game, but its one the Wildcats have to win to ensure the top seed in the district tournament. The critical game against Bishop Kenny isnt the only upcoming game for the Cats, though, who had to be careful to not overlook a trip to Madison County on January 21. See next weeks edition for a recap of that contest. The team will travel to play Baldwin on January 25.

Brian Walton (at right) had 18 points and 10 rebounds in the win over Paxon.JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Lady Wildcats hot streak during the closing weeks of the regular season continued as the team has won five straight games to pull above .500 for the first time since De cember 6 with a 12-9 overall record. For the second time this season, BCHS narrowly edged out the Episcopal Lady Eagles as they won on the road 5754 on January 14. The team trailed by 11 points entering the fourth quarter but rallied back through the final frame to close the gap. Baker County took a threepoint lead with 40 seconds remaining when Kiala Pigott sunk her free throw attempts to give her 11 points on the night. The Lady Wildcats hung on as the clock ticked down to seal the regular-season sweep of Episcopal. Delicia Washington had another offensive outburst with a team-high 33 points. We kept our composure after we were down by 11 at the start of the fourth quarter and they played hard through the end, head coach Chris Chisholm said. The girls next three victories came a lot easier than the one against Episcopal. Washingtons 33 points once again led the Lady Cats as they easily disposed of the Baldwin Lady Indians 69-43 on the road on January 17. The 26-point win was reminiscent of the teams blowout victory over the Lady Indians early in the season as the Lady Cats dominated the action and everyone had a chance to play. In addition to Washingtons high-scoring night, Pigott also reached double-digits with 11 points. The Lady Cats secured an other road victory when they pulled away from the Forrest Lady Rebels in the second half en route to a 54-36 road win on January 20. Baker Countys offense was slowed down in the first half when Forrests defense doubleteamed Washington. This kept the game tight until Abby Rice connected on a three-point shot before half time to give the squad momentum heading into the second half. Washington still managed to score a team-high 28 points even with the added defensive attention, but other players stepped up in the second half to take pressure off the playmaker and help the Lady Cats pull away. Haley Bussell finished the game with 20 points to catapult the team to the blowout win. The Lady Wildcats returned home on January 21 and cruised to their fifth straight win with a 63-50 victory over Fort White. The entire team saw the court in the lopsided game that saw the Lady Cats lead by as much as 26 points in the third quarter. The team slowed down its offensive attack in the fourth quarter, which allowed the visiting team to make the final score more respectable. Washington scored 20 of her 27 points in the first half to help the Lady Cats enjoy a 15-point half time advantage. Rice was second on the team with eight points. The Lady Wildcats will close out their regular season with Senior Night against the visiting Union County on January 23. Then, the Lady Cats will turn their attention to the District 3-5A tour nament, which is being held at Baker County and begins on January 27. Although the girls struggled through portions of the district schedule, they are beginning to gel as a team at the right time to make some noise in the tour nament. We have a really young team, Coach Chisholm said. The girls are growing together as a young team and weve been doing really well.Cats soaring at 9 straight!

Lady Cats rally to rise above .500 JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS wrestling team went 2-1 at a quad meet at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind on January 17 that also had Wolfson and Raines scheduled to compete. The Wildcats defeated Wolfson by forfeit when the Wolfpack didnt show up for the meet. Forfeits also played a major role in the teams contests against the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind and Raines. The Wildcats lost to the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind 4236 after forfeiting three weight classes gave the Dragons an automatic 18-point advantage. Baker County won six of the nine matches that took place, but the forfeits dug the team a deep hole they couldnt get out. Four of the six Wildcat wins came via pinfall. Caleb Scott won by pin in the first round at the 160-pound class, Simon Brown at the 152 class and James Carter at the 195 class pinned their opponents in the second round and Johnny Ruise secured the pin in the third round of his 145-pound match. The Cats also had two wrestlers win by decision after the match lasted all three rounds. Sean Mulkey won by a major decision with the point advantage 15-10 in his 182-pound contest. At 285 pounds, Collyn Green won by minor decision 4-1. Justin Canterbury won by forfeit in the 220-pound class. Forfeits may have been the reason the Cats lost to the Dragons, but the team benefited from five forfeit wins against the Raines Vikings en route to its 48-18 victory. Shawn Martin at 120 pounds, Louis Handte at 132 pounds, Ian Finn at 138 pounds, Ruise at 145 pounds and Canterbury at 220 pounds all won by forfeit. Wildcat wrestlers won three of the five matches they competed in against the Vikings, each by a first-round pin. Brown at 152 pounds, Carter at 195 pounds and Green at 285 pounds all ended their respective matches in the first round. The wrestling teams season continues with two road meets at Ed White on January 22 and Fernandina Beach of January 25.No-shows aid Cat wrestlers at Fla. Deaf meetLike football fans everywhere, I planted myself on the couch Sunday and didnt move from 3 pm until bedtime watching the AFC and NFC championship games. What shows they proved to be. As a rule, the conference championships usually prove to be better games than the Super Bowl and these certainly set the bar high for the big game in two weeks between Denver and Seattle. as a match-up of the two top quarterbacks in the game. Both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are shoe-ins for the of eligibility and they demonstrated it on Sunday. Manning was masterful, checking off plays at the line, maneuvering players back and forth like a chess master and hitting pin point passes. Brady was more quixotic, forcing balls into tight spaces and willing his team on a late surge. The Patriots might not have been at their best thanks to the Denver defense upping its game, but it made for excit ing football. In the end it was Manning and the Broncos continuing their record-setting season. Manning is nearing the end of his best season ever and arguably the best any NFL quar ting that he should match up in the Super Bowl against the top team in the league with the best defense. For a while it didnt look like Seattle would get there. San Francisco was playing the better football because of the running of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. His long strides cut through a Seattle defense keying on running back Frank Gore. Though his passing was not up to his running, Kae pernick kept the Niners in the ers, it was exciting football indeed. All game long, the Niners avoided throwing the ball toward Richard Sherman, the best cornerback in the NFL. On the last play of the game, however, they had no choice. Kaepernick tossed it in the corner of the end zone to Michael Crabtree. Sherman reached up and batted it away into the hands of linebacker Malcolm Smith to steal the win. Of course, the only thing most people will remember about the titanic struggle was Shermans rant to Fox correspondent Erin Andrews when asked to comment on the play. In the tirade that followed he screamed about the Niners choice to throw against the best corner in the game to a sorry receiver like Crabtree and how when you make that choice, thats what you get. It made for good TV and will certainly be the main talking point for the next two weeks as we get ready to plant ourselves back on the couch for the Super Bowl. team manager suggested the gesture. Shes been supporting Wildcat sports for a while now and we thought it was a good thing to show her how much that support means to the team and what they go out there to do ... Kanon is a big part of that and we wanted to recognize it. We just want her to know how much we appreciate the support, said the coach.

This is the rst FHSAA Regional Championship that has been won by BCHS cheerleaders, noted Ms. Carrington. The event was sponsored by American Cheer and Dance. The team also nished in second place about two weeks prior at the National Fellowship of Christian Championship held in Orlando on January 2.
