75th Year, Vol. 43 Thursday February 3, 2005 Macclenny, Florida 500



is given



A Macclenny man was sentenc-
ed to 10 years in prison for selling
cocaine near Keller Intermediate
School in 2003.
Michael Moring, 24, pled no con-
test to drug charges in several cases
on the eve of trial January 20.
He had been serving a sentence
imposed after a trial last year, and
will receive credit against his 10-
year sentence for 218 days he's al-
ready served.

Defendant Michael
Moring had been
arrested four times
over a six month
period for drug sales.

Over a period of six months in
2003, Mr. Moring was arrested four
separate times on drug charges.
In June, he sold $30 worth of
.crack cocaine to a police informant
out of a house on Martin Luther
King Jr. Boulevard.
..The location was within 1000.
feet of a school, which state law
treats more severely. .
Three months later, he was back
selling crack from the same place
to another informant.
A week later he was stopped
while driving on US 90 by an offi-
cer who knew his license had been
suspended. The deputy found crack
in the car.
Finally in December, while Mr.
Moring was being arrested at his
Sycamore Street home for the June
crack sale to the informant, he was
charged with illegal possession of a
prescription drug.
In another case settled before tri-
al, Lester Stewart of Sanderson was
sentenced to three years for traf-
ficking in cocaine. He will get
credit for 45 days already served.
Prosecutors dropped a charge of
selling a controlled substance.
The jury had already been cho-
sen to hear the case when the plea
agreement was reached January 20
Mr. Stewart sold 33.5 grams of
powder cocaine to a police infor-
mant for $1200 in October 2003 in
Immediately after the transac-
tion. which took place October 3,
2003 in Sanderson, investigators
went into the home and arrested
In other cases, Judge David
Giant on January 24 issued the fol-
lowing sentences:
SHenry Brannlr received 90
days, with credit for 90 days alrea-
dy served, after pleading no contest
burglary and theft charges. He also
must serve five years' probation.
Gloria Davis pled no contest to
petit theft and received one year's
probation. She had been charged
with grand theft auto and grand
Michael Jackson was sentenc-
ed to 18 months in prison for sexu-
al battery on a child.
William Taylor pled no contest
to misdemeanor possession of mar-
ijuana, possession of drug para-
phernalia and reckless driving. He
was sentenced to 30 months of pro-
bation. Prosecutors dropped a
charge of sale/possession of a con-
trolled substance. The reckless dri-
ving plea was a downgrade from
the original charge of driving under
the influence.
Catherine Wright was sentenc-
ed to three years of drug-offender
probation after pleading no contest
to forgery charges and possession
of cocaine.

to require paving

Motorcyclecar collision injures two Thursday
Police taped off the scene of a two vehicle collision at the intersection of SR 121 and Mud Lake Road about noon on January 27. The
driver on a borrowed southbound motorcycle sustained a severe leg injury when his bike struck the Camaro in the background. The
driver of the car pulled onto 121 from the eastbound lane ahead of a southbound tractor-trailer on 121 about the same time the motor-
cycle was passing it at an angle hidden from the driver's view. The Florida Highway Patrol was unable to locate an accident report
with the names of the drivers and other details. Both were hospitalized.

Pineview golf club

on selling block?
The 139 acre privately-owned Pineview Golf and Country
Club will likely be sold to a private land development group
that in turn plans to sell off the adjacent Broken Oak Subdivis-
ion in the beginning phases of development just to the south f
off Lowder St.
Wayne Combs, president of the four member Broken Oak
group, confirmed Tuesday a contract pends on purchase of the
40-year-old 18 hole course owned by Dr. Gary Dopson, who is
also mayor of Macclenny. Both the properties lie in the city
Dr. Dopson, a private practice family physician, deferred :
specific comment on a pending sale, except to confirm he is
looking at "several possibilities."
"I can't say anything for sure now, but as the price of run-
ning a golf course goes up it's not as viable as it once was. You
can't raise the prices enough to make it worthwhile; people
will go somewhere else," he said. He confirmed that several
parties have been interested in Pineview for residential devel-
If it sells, Baker County will be without a golf course,
though a Miami-based group said recently its long range plans
for a large tract off CR 125 near Ode Yarbrough Road include de
multiple courses. R
Mr. Combs likewise was hesitant to discuss the other party
in a Broken Oak contract until a deal is finalized. It consists of 18
32.5 acres and the group is still in the infrastructure stage of gl

Developers will be invited to a
workshop later this month to dis-
cuss a proposed county ordinance
requiring roads to be paved in all
new subdivisions.
Pending adoption of the ordi-
nance, the Baker County Commis-
sion in December imposed a mora-
torium on approving new subdivi-
sion plats. The temporary ban came
as the commission acknowledged
homeowner associations do not ade-
quately handle long range mainte-
nance of roads, ditches, retention
ponds and other amenities. ,
Ironically, in a two-hour work-
shop prior to the February 1 meet-
ing, the commission learned of.a
similar arrangement that may be-
come part of the county's first de-
velopment of regional impact.

The county's only golf course may be sold off for residential development.
development. Other principles are Tommy Rhoden, Mitch Canaday and Rock
Recently the group successfully sought re-zoning from Macclenny to allow
8 twin-unit townhouses in Broken Oak. The bulk of the tract is zoned for sin-
e-family homes on small lots.

School architect offers analysis to county

The Baker County school dis-
trict's architect has offered a no-
cost analysis of problems remain-
ing from construction of the court-
house addition.
Bill Bishop of Jacksonville firm

Akel, Logan and Shafer was re-
cruited b' newly hired county zon-
ing code inspector Bobby Hancock,
who was the school district director
of plant services until his retire-
ment in 2000.

At the courthouse, Mr. Bishop
will check three problems remain-
ing from the 1999-2000 project that
doubled the size of the courthouse:
the air conditioner system, base-
ment flooding, cracks and under-

NAS Jax pilots land at Baker Head Start last week
Navy Lt. Jerick Black reads to students at Baker Head Start as part of the annual Reading is Fundamental program January 28. Lt. Com-
mander Scott Hendricks read to children In another classroom. In all, about 25 young students ages 3-5 participated in the two-day event.
Head Start sponsors the reading event each year, and later this month invited adults from the Baker County community to visit classrooms
and read from children's books.

ground water seepage in the park-
ing lot.
Mr. Bishop's offer of free evalu-
ation also extends to the leaking
roof at the county annex on North
Fifth Street. However, a fee will
apply if Mr. Bishop is asked to
draw up corrective plans for any of
the problems.
Meanwhile, the Baker County
Commission and Clerk of Courts
Al Fraser hope the contractor who
won a February 1 bid award will be
able to cure chronic leaks in the flat
roofs at the east and west ends of
the original half of the courthouse.
The segments have undergone
Numerous unsuccessful repairs, but
the specifications this time call for
adding a slope to direct rainwater
away from the building.
The sole $23,860 bid came from
Prestige Construction Systems Inc.
of Jacksonville.
The Fifth Street annex has had
roof leaks on the west wing occu-
pied by the elections supervisor
and north side atop the tax collec-
tor's space. The south side used by
the property appraiser has so far es-
caped leaks, but that may be be-
cause an adjoining building acts as
a wind break.
Several patch jobs have been
done on the annex, but they did not
hold up'during last fall's hurri-

Adar Developers LLP of Miami
has proposed a Community Devel-
opment District label for a 5845
acre mix of residential, commercial
and recreation project west of Ode
Yarbrough Road.
The CDD would allow Adar to
float a bond issue to pave the roads
and perhaps to pay for a number of
other promised improvements-like
- two golf courses, three schools, sub-
stations for fire, rescue and sher-
iff's departments.
The bond issue would give Adar
the money for the extras while still
being able to sell its proposed
15,000 home lots at a price compe-
titive with nearby properties.
Brian Teeple and Ed Lehman of
the Northeast Florida Regional
Planning Council indicated the as-
sessment process would be set up
by the developer, not .collected as
part of property taxes.
Adar is already facing a lengthy
Development of Regional Impact
process that will take a year or long-
er. A DRI is triggered at a certain de-
velopment range, which in Baker
County is 625 or more homes.
In other items February 1, the
commission agreed to proceed with
a $5 million paving loan from Mer-
cantile Bank. The board wants to
keep annual payments at about'the
same $289,000 as a current loan.
SBank president John Kennedy said
he will have figures on the interest
rate and repayment term in about
ten days. Up to half the county's
six cent local option gas tax will be
pledged toward repayment of the
In another road paving item, Jo-
seph Wells of grant coordinating
firm Jordan and Associates of Or-
ange Park said he will head a team
checking financial eligibility in
several areas the next couple of
weekends. At least 51% of homes
in a target area must be low income
to qualify for road paving paid for
by a Community Development
Block Grant.
The board approved financing
five new road graders with a
$688,148 loan at 4% interest
through Caterpillar Finance of
Nashville, Tenn. Repayment will
be at $55,063 for each of the next
five years.
The only other bid came from
Mercantile Bank at 4.1%.
In another bid award, Gary
Hodges will harvest timber from
part of the 1600 acre St. Mary's
Shoals Park near Cuyler. Mr.
Hodges bid $1350, and the sole
other bid was from Emerald Tim-
ber Co. Inc. at $1000.
An agreement was signed with
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation to repair the Greens'
Creek Bridge on CR 125 South.
FDOT will be responsible for de-
sign, federal approval and con-
struction of the bridge.
The pact does not stipulate a
start or completion date.
In a final item, the board ap-
proved advertising for three vacant
road department positions.

teresting job or vantage point

Small county funds

for roads re-instated

Two road improvement funds
which Baker County used in the
past have been reinstated by state,
The Small County Road Assis-
tance Program (SCRAP) has re-
ceived $25 million, and $5.3 mil-
lion has been allocated for the
Small County Outreach Program
(SCOP) in Governor Jeb Bush's
enhancement of funding for Flori-
da's economically distressed rural
counties and communities.
Altogether, the enhancements
total $301 million statewide, and
are based on the understanding
that smaller counties often do not
have the fiscal resources to meet
basic needs like road improve-
ments and new schools.
The amount Baker County gets
will depend on special applications
in a competitive process. In other
parts of Gov. Bush's proposal that
may impact Baker County:
$15 million in new recurring
funds distributed to fiscally con-
strained counties on a formula ba-
$9 million in additional funds
in recognition of the relatively
higher operating cost of smaller
school districts due to sparse stu-
dent population. This brings total
funding for education sparsity to
$40 million, a 29% increase over
the current year. Rural counties
can use this funding for any educa-
tion operating need.
$55 million for construction of
$46 million in grants to rural
counties and small communities for
infrastructure needs such as trans-
portation and wastewater treatment.

Some people a bit touchy


Here's something to think about
during Super Bowl week when the
world's attention (not that part of
the world where people don't
know where their next meal is
coming from) turns to northeast
Insecure people often take
excessive offense at slights from
Makes no difference if the
slights are serious or in fun, to the
overly-sensitive they are intolera-
ble. It can make everyday living a
lot more difficult.
Consider the barbs delivered by
sports writers so far about the
Jacksonville area before most of
them even arrived here to cover
the garte.
It's a Waffle House mecca; it
still should be called Cowford; a
super-sized Big Mac is the best
thing on the menu of the best
restaurant in town. Bla, bla bla.
Florida Times-Union columnist
Mark Woods on Monday took a
jab at Baker County, suggesting
tongue-in-cheek that visitors might
want to drive oit here to the scene
of last year's infamous Operation
Blackberry mass arrest by state
game officers of poachers and
The suggestion, of course, was
meant to demonstrate that there
are negative things to look for if
you want to. Mr. Woods also
included a shopping list of things
he likes about northeast Florida,
and suggested visiting sports writ-
ers avoid them lest they become
enamored with the area like he is.
Baker County residents who
work in Jacksonville, go to school
or church there and otherwise have
friends and relatives there are used
to barbs like this. So maybe we
have thicker skin than Jacksonville
people do when others from the -
northeast take shots at "redneck"
north Florida.
Things are seldom as others
portray them. It takes about half
the normal adult lifetime to come
to that realization, and if one is
confident of one's reasons for
doing something like choosing a
place to live instead of simply
being born there one doesn't pay

much mind to what others say.
So, if a sports writer from
Washington, D.C. or Philadelphia
wants to get things stirred up by
flinging barbs at Jacksonville and
musing as to why the NFL would
ever choose such a place for its
Big Dance, who does that harm?
I love the D.C. area and haven't
spent much time in Philly except
occasionally at the airport. I don't
,think I'd like to live in either place
-for a number of reasons, but they
aren't things that prevent me from
seeing why other, perfectly sane,
people might want to live there.
I don't know many people
being kept in Baker County or
northeast Florida against their will.
Most of us are here because we
want to be here, and the negatives
one amasses about any location
obviously are outweighed by the
pluses. That's the way life works,
except for the unfortunate few
among us who find themselves in

intolerable situations through no
fault of their own.,
Things like war, tsunamis, large
scale starvation and deprivation
from any number of causes now
those are things to be concerned
about; reasons why someone
wouldn't want to live in a particu-
lar place.
What we're talking about here
is the location of a Super Bowl,
perhaps the world's most brash
example of celebrating excess and
the good life not enjoyed by the
majority of people on this earth.
If we don't have the "right"
restaurants, the "right" 'night spots,
enough hotel rooms or spaces to
park private jets, I'm not sure
that's something we need to feel
inferior about.
So, lighten up. We are who we
are, and we'll still be that next
Monday when everybody else
leaves northeast Florida.

Denied CoA board seat

Dear Editor:
Do we still have a democratic
society, or has it changed to a
bureaucratic dictatorship?
Do we still have a right to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happi-
We senior citizens of Baker
County want to know why we have
been denied a seat on the Council
on Aginig board of directors.
We felt a spokesman who actu-
ally knew of our wants and needs
could best speak on our behalf. We
were told this is not feasible for
two reasons:
V It would be too "confusing."
For whom, we ask? Do they think
we are too senile to know or un-
derstand what is going on?
We assure them, we are not..
Maybe the "confusion" would be
on their part. Our input would not
fit into their agenda, or their plans
for us.
The second thing we were told
was we are more than welcome to
attend Council meetings, and if a
discussion was put to the floor, we
would be able to respond.
Hurray! We have a voice. But it
isn't heard. Their actions will be
what they deem right for us. Is that
how liberty works?
Based on last week's cost-cut-
ting endeavors, the following

arrangements are being enacted:
V Privatizing home health care.
Since when can a business that is
in existence to make money give
the personal care better than some-
one who personally cares about
the needy?
We had Baker County neigh-
bors treating neighbors. The cli-
ents felt safe allowing them into
their homes. How safe will they
feel allowing strangers to help
V Changing deliveries to home
bound 'clients to three hot meals
and two packaged meals a week.
Why bother with the packaged?
If a homebound client were capa-
ble of preparing his or her own
meal, they wouldn't be on the list.
What if they have no microwave
oven? What if they can't reach the
oven knob on their stove?
Most important, what if they
forget to turn an oven off, or burn
themselves? No one will be there
to help them.
Our homebound residents rely
on that hot meal and the company
of the person who delivers it. They
make quick assessments of each
client's daily needs. To abandon
them four of seven days a week is
to deny them the right to life.

Jacksonville has spent millions
of dollars preparing for this week.
Not since Sherman marched across

this number of out-of-towners de-
scended. Some pundits estimate
that 200,000 folks who didn't even
know Jacksonville existed at the

rolling into town.

less who do that. As a result, to
make room in the city's gutters for
a higher class of street people, all
the homeless have been removed.
The story is that they are being
housed in a couple of area schools'

Hattie Edu

merits 'legend'

status already

Dear Editor:
Last Saturday I attended the
funeral service of a woman who
had over the years woven her
name so strongly into this commu-
nity that she probably qualifies as
a legend.
I refer to Hattie Lou English.
We hear so much today about
the importance of diversity, yet
I've met few people who can actu-
ally be said to have lived a life
with such a strong belief in the
goodness of all people.
My family had the good fortune
to have Hattie Lou come into our
lives about 30 years ago, helping
to raise our children and run our
She taught us about being re-
sourceful and appreciating what
one has and how to enjoy a quick-
"ly prepared meal df eggs, rice and
meat (fondly known to her as "Do-
lolly). She taught the wonders of
music and singing out loud for the
pure enjoyment of it.
Hattie Lou attended church
with our family over the Christmas
season, and after the formal
lessons were over, she sat up at the
piano and gave lessons of her own.
A person who had recently moved
here, after watching her play and
sing, could only ask fondly, "Who
was that?"
Like the Pied Piper'that she
was, Hattie Lou had, brought
another into her parade of life.
If your name is Griffis, Bennett,
Lyons, Johns, Taylor, Kirkland,
Whitney, Knabb or Davis, you'
probably understand fully what
this lady was about. There are also
numerous grandchildren and
neighbor children she influenced
as well.
If you weren't fortunate enough
to have kpown her during her
nearly 90 years on this Earth, you
surely missed a most wonderful
lady who was an example of pure
goodness and one who always
found the upside of anything.
We're sure the better for having
Hattie Lou in our lives and family.
Macclenny and Glen St. Mary



More out-of-towners

than when Sherman

marched into Georgia

Jacksonville officials are a little
ticked off because newspaper col-
umnists in Philadelphia and Bos-
ton have hinted that Jacksonville
isn't sophisticated enough for the
high class clientele who will be at-
tending the game.
Ya think?.
That may be so, but last time I
checked there was three feet of
snow in Boston and Philadelphia.
At least here you don't have to wait
until the icebreakers clear the river
to sail your boat up to the Jackson-
ville Landing.
One rapper cancelled his perfor-
mance because he couldn't get 15
five-star hotel rooms for his en-
tourage. Of course, three years ago
he was living out of a cardboard
box in Philadelphia, but it was a
sophisticated cardboard box.
In theory, the game itself will
kick off sometime in the near fu-
ture-I'm not really sure when, how-
ever. I think the NFL plans to wait
until every celebrity ever featured
on VHl's Fabulous Life Of.. has
That could be awhile. It's hard
to find that many private planes
willing to land at JIA. But at some
unspecified point, a game is sup-
Sposed to break out between the New
England Patriots and the Philadel-
phia Eagles.
If you plan to attend any of the
hundreds of Super Bowl related
activities, get a jump on the com-
petition-go now and have your
head examined. Over 200,000 peo-
ple will bQ arriving in the next few
days. All of them will expect to
find a parking place downtown.
None of them have tickets to the
big game. In fact, no one who isn't
< a rapper, a member of a Fortune '
500 company or have been fea-
tured on VH1's Fabulous Life Of...
can afford tickets to the Super
Bowl. The rest of these people are
here to tie up traffic, get drunk and
throw up on each other's shoes, or
to see Paris Hilton. They don't
care which.
If you like to gawk at celebrities,
you have hit pay dirt. They will all
be here. I'm not talking about real
celebrities like Tom Hanks or Ni-
cole Kidman. They have better
things to do, like make Oscar nom-
inated movies.
I'm talking about celebrities
like Hilton, whose only claim to
fame is being the daughter of hotel
magnate Conrad Hilton and hav-
ing so much money she doesn't
need a real job and can spend her
time making illicit sex tapes for
sale on the Internet. Hilton tried to
reserve the top floor of her daddy's
Hilton Hotel for the week, but was
told it was being reserved for real
We'll probably see celebs like
Amber Frey or Brigitte Nielson.
Both are minor celebs. Frey isn't
an entertainer, she just dated mur-
derer Scott Peterson and wrote a
book about it. Nielson is featured
on the reality show Surreal Life in
,which she just-I don't know, lives
her surreal life. It used to be that
people who lived surreal lives ei-
ther painted pictures and cut off an
ear or were on heavy medication.
Now they are on reality television
shows and go to the Super Bowl.
Former NFL stars will be on
hand at parties and maybe even the
game if they know a rapper or a
minor celebrity. If you're a former
NFL player and aren't a commen-
tator on ESPN, there's really not a
lot for you to do accept play in ce-
lebrity golf tournaments and come
to the Super Bowl. Maybe if you
look hard enough, you'll even see
OJ Simpson in Jacksonville hunt-
ing for the real killer of his wife
Nichole. He's looked unsuccess-
frilly on just about every golf course
in the continental United States.
I'm probably just going to stay
home, eat some unsophisticated
barbecue, and watch the game on
television. If I get really ambitious,
I might hang out in the parking lot
at the Wal-Mart Superstore on the
Westside in hopes of catching a
glimpse of a former American Idol
contestant or somebody voted off
Survivor Island in week two.

Well, that was before the map
makers from River Graphics set
the record straight.
During a cursory look at the
map, which can be found on page
2 of the guide, I noticed a couple
other mistakes. But rather than
point them out, I suggest that Bak-
er Countians hold "Where's
Woodlawn?" parties where teams
of partygoers compete to see who
can find the most errors.
At least, that way the guide can
serve some real purpose.
Twenty-eight of the guide's 32
pages are listings alphabetically
by category (funeral homes, gro-
cery stores, etc.) and in another
section apparently by membership
in the chamber of commerce.
It's nothing more than a lame
imitation of the Yellow Pages, but
without the distraction of all that ...
Kidding aside, mistakes hap-
pen, but it appears as though the
map was drawn up in 2003. Why
not fix it before putting it in the
2005 guide?

It's hard enough to overcome
the negative images associated
with a rural area without the most

Which brings us to the real
On the "Welcome to Baker

"Me Tarzan. Me say, 'Educa-

As for the second part of the
sentence, try either of these:

Or, Baker County residents are
proud of their school system.
And as a side note, when last
year's FCAT results gave "C"
grades to local schools, Superin-

subsequent search of his nearby
home. Police also lifted several
finger prints from windows.
The boy was arrested and later
released to relatives.
In other cases, an intruder ap-
parently stayed inside Bill's Gro-

An assistant restaurant manager
faces multiple counts of battery fol-

female employee that he touched
her inappropriately and made sexu-

Joshua F. Parton, 24, of Lake
City initially denied the allegations
following a written complaint by
the cashier and a witness statement
by another female co-worker.
The complaint alleges Mr. Par-
ton made sexual comments the
evening of January 29, and at one
point unhooked the girl's bra from
outside her blouse. He also repeat-

The Town of Baldwin is considering applying to the Florida Department of Community Affairs
(DCA) for a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) of up to
$650,000.00. These funds must be used for one of the following purposes:

1. To benefit low and moderate-income persons; or

'2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or

3. To meet other community development needs of recent origin having a particular
urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or wel-
fare of the community and where other financial resources are not available to meet such

The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in the areas of housing,
neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization, or economic development and include
such improvement activities as acquisition of real property, loans to private-for-profit business,
purchase of machinery and equipment, construction of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses
and commercial buildings, and energy conservation. Additional information regarding the
range of activities that may be undertaken will be provided at the public hearing.

For each activity that is proposed, at least 51% of the funds must benefit low and moderate-
income persons.

In developing an application for submission to DCA, the Town of Baldwin must plan to mini-
mize displacement of persons as a result of planned CDBG activities. In addition, the Town of
Baldwin is required to -develop a plan to assist displaced persons.

The public hearing to receive citizen views concerning the community's economic and commu-
nity development needs will be held at the Town Hall, on 10 U.S. 90 West, Baldwin, FL
32234-1832, on Tuesday, February 8, 2005, at 6:30 p.m. For information concerning the pub-

Bob's top video picks

$4.50 for 15 words? What a Deal!
The Baker County Press

Entertainment Editor
With the Super Bowl tossing
thousands of people on the roads,
it might be a good idea to stay in-
side and watch some videos. Here's
a list of some of the better videos
out there to be rented.
The Terminal, PG 13. Reviews
for this movie were mixed, but I
just loved Tom Hanks' portrayal of
a traveler from Eastern Europe
who is denied entry to the USA af-
ter his country's government is ov-
Hanks is forced to live in limbo
in the airport terminal in New
York for months. In the process, he
learns English and forms friend-
ships with airport workers and a
burgeoning romance with flight at-
tendant Catherine Zeta Jones.
It's a charming, funny and in-
spiring movie. Hanks, as usual, is
wonderful, as are some of the sup-
porting roles. I'm only so-so on
Zeta Jones, but I loved her in this
Sky Captain and the World of
Tomorrow, PG. Once again, this is
a film that is not for everyone. It is
visually stunning and looks like a
1930s comic book come to life.
Jude Law stars as the sky captain,
a mercenary out to save the world
from mysterious giant robots. Gwy-
neth Paltrow is his plucky newspa-
per reporter girl Friday, and Ange-
lina Jolie is the eye-patched British
flyer who also loves him.
It's a silly story and 85% of the
movie is computer generated, but
it's a visual feast, especially if you
like old comic books.
KingArthur, PG 13. Expect ab-
solutely no resemblance to any
King Arthur and the Knights of the
Round Table you've ever seen be-
fore. In fact, just ignore the fact
that this is Arthur and Lancelot
and Guinevere, and you'll be a lot
better off.

Clive Owen and Iaon Gruffudd
star as Arthur and Lancelot, and
the stunning Kiera Knightley is a
sword-wielding, bow-shooting
Guinevere. Definitely not a damsel
in distress. The basic story is that
the knights are all indentured ser-
vants from the Baltic who are
working for the Romans in Britain
in return for their freedom. Great
battle scenes and a pretty good
performance from Owen.
Hero, PG-13. If you like martial
arts movies, this is fabulous. In the
same style as Crouching Tiger,
Hidden Dragon, it presents China
as a magical world where the laws
of physics don't exist and fighters
can run up trees and leap over
The story is a little complicated.
A warrior claims to have killed
three famous assassins out to mur-
der a tyrannical king. But as the
king unravels the story, he dis-
covers that nothing is what it
seems. I.didn't really care for it a
third of the way in, but after that, I
was hooked.
Anchorman-The Legend of Ron
Burgundy, R. I make it a point to
avoid movies by Saturday Night
Live alumni, but for some reason, I
decided to watch this one.
Will Ferrell is Ron Burgundy,
the top-rated anchorman in San
Diego in the 1970s. He's a com-
plete idiot surrounded by complete
idiots in polyester suits. They are
one big happy "news team" until
Christina Applegate comes to the
station as its first woman reporter.
One by one, the news team tries
to romance her without success,
but no one can say no to Ron Bur-
gundy. There are some funny mo-
ments, mostly based on seventies
stereotypes, but for the most part, I
felt myself losing brain cells with
every passing moment, until by the
end I couldn't remember the coun-
ty seat of Baker County.

SQaeep for the Day!

Once a fair maiden was crowned beauty queen
The year was approximately nineteen thirteen
And although the years have been basically kind,
A dream still exists in the back of her mind
To once again reign with a scepter and crown
To see royal subjects kiss her ring and bow down
We cannot convince her, as hard as we've tried
That such vain ambition is nothing but pride
Besides, we say, once a queen, you always will be
Just check outyour pantyhose if it's proof you need
But nothing will do her, she won't be content
Till her dream is fulfilled and our last penny spent
A milestone birthday is the perfect occasion
To settle this matter with a re-coronation
So this Saturday, from the hours of eleven till two,
A special invitation is extended to you
To drop by the Mercantile and honor the queen
No gifts, just handwritten compliments, please
Her age is a secret that shall not be revealed
We've taken an oath and our lips are sealed
But if you really must know, and you're feeling thrifty
Sale tags will be posted with a big number fifty
We'll be serving refreshments in a royal way
So come join the fun, and make Cathy's day!
The best compliment wins a
$50,00 Gift Certificate!

Untmi theFat Ldy :

Ophellia Belford sparked a Wildcats fourth-quarter rally that nearly overcame an 18-point
deficit to Fernandina Beach.

Lady Wildcat seniors

Slay final home game,

ose to Fernandina 56-41

After falling behind Fernandi-
na Beach 20-2 in their last home
game of the season, the Lady
Wildcats basketball team hung
tough, riding a furious fourth
quarter comeback to within six
points before falling to the Pirates
56-41 January 31.
The following night, the Cats
lost at Keystone Heights 57-24,
but the game ended too late for
details to be included in this
week's paper.
The Cats remain winless on the
season with one game left, Febru-
ary 3 at Lake City.
The district tournament is
scheduled to begin February 8.
The Fernandina game was Se-
nior Night, which featured a pre-
game ceremony honoring Sabrina
Tuttle, Cara Givens, Sharhonda
Dinkins and Kylee Canaday.
Coach Franklin Griffis started
all four players, although usually
just Canaday starts.
Just a couple of minutes into
the game, however, Dinkins went
down with a knee injury and had
to be helped off the court. She
didn't make the trip to Keyslone
Height,. but her condition was not
available at press time.
The Pirates opened and closed
the first quarter with 10-0 runs
sandwiched around a single bas-
ket by the Wildcats at the 3:22
Fernandina was led by Laci
Roberts, its tall, athletic center
who scored 16 for the game.
The Caelr, however, outscored
the visitors 10-7 in the second
quarter and 14-12 in the third.
Entering the final quarter, the
Cats trailed by 13, but hit a quick
bucket, then held the Pirates
scoreless for three minutes,
Ophellia Belford came off the
bench to spark the Cats, with six
points in a minute and a half,
With about six minutes to go, she
got a steal, drove the length of the
court and hit a jumper.
After an unforced turnover by
Fernandina, Belford hit another
jumper. The Pirates missed a sub-
sequent shot, but got the offensive
rebound and scored,
Belford responded with a
jumper to pull the Cats to within
41-34 with four and a half min-
utes to go. Baker rebounded the
second of two missed free throws
by Fernandina.
Deanna McKenzie in turn hit
one of two from the line to close
the gap to six points with 4:09
It was the closest the Cats
would get.
Fernandina converted another
itt nllni rebound, then scored off
two consecutive steals from its
full-court press.
In less than 30 seconds, the Pi-
rates had doubled their lead.
Griffis called a time out to re-
group, but Fernandina hit a two ,
then a three sandwiched around a
Belford two. With 1:49 left, the
Pirates were up 52-37,
The teams exchanged a couple
of buckets each to put the final
scofe at 56-41.
Caaday led the team with 12
points,, while McKenzie hit 11,
Be~lford scored 8, all in the fourth


Earlier in the week, Baker lost
36-31 at Baldwin. Canaday was
high scorer with 10. McKenzie
had 8.
Again it was one bad quarter
that cost the Cats, as the Indians
outscored them 13-7 in the sec-

It's finally here.
For five years Jacksonville has
poured millions of dollars and
countless hours into preparing to
host the Super Bowl. Now we'll
find out whether all that hard work
has paid off.
In some respects, the game be-
tween the defending champion
New England Patriots and the
Philadelphia Eagles is just a side-
light, three hours that top off a
week-long party.
Most of the people who come
here to celebrate the NFL's cham-
pionship game won't even make it
into Alltel Stadium. They are here
just for the party.
Like the rest of us, they don't
have tickets, which is a far differ-
ent scenario than back in 1967
when the AFL-NFL championship
game (it wasn't even called the
Super Bowl then) between Green
Bay and Kansas City wasn't a sell-
out, even with tickets starting at $6
and reserved seats for $10. Those
prices were considered steep and
over a third of the 94,000 seats at
the Los Angeles Coliseum were
unsold. Green Bay won 35-10.
Now, however, it's the Great
American Party.
Everybody who's anybody in-
the sports world will be there. The
NFL trots out its all-time greats
like Tony Dorsett and Eric Dicker-
son. The owners, coaches and top
players fly in on private jets and
are wined and dined.
Then there are celebrities and

The Packers won the first two
games easily. The third game,
however, featured a brash quarter-
back named Joe Namath who
guaranteed that his New York Jets
would vanquish the mighty Balti-
more Colts. Most pundits scoffed,
but the fans who forked out a hefty
$12 per ticket saw Broadway Joe
make good.

Ticket prices rose to an incredible
Fast forward a few years. The
Super Bowl, which hadn't always
been so super, hosts some great
teams, players and stories as the
game struggles to avoid being
overshadowed by the growing
hype surrounding it:
The 49ers also win four under
Joe Montana, who engineers a
memorable comeback win against
Cincinnati in what many consider
the best Super Bowl. Steve Young
later wins San Francisco's fifth ti-
Jim Kelly and Buffalo lose
four straight.
John Elway loses three ties
but wins in each of his final two
seasons, cementing his place in
NFL history.
In recent years, the games have
alternated between being competi-





Baltimore over the New York
Giants 34-7; and
Tennessee comes up a yard
short in a 23-16 loss to St. Louis.
It remains to be seen which type
of game we'll get Sunday at Alltel
- by the above scenario we're due
for a stinker but for Jacksonville,
it's more important what happens
off the field.
