guilty in circuit court Monday
and was sentenced to 14 years
in state prison followed by a
five-year electronically moni-
tored probation.
Robert Munoz, 18, entered
the surprise plea to second-
degree murder just prior to
selection of a
jury for what was
anticipated to be
a five-day trial.

felony murder in the second

law that holds someone re-

others in the commission of a
crime even though they didn't
actually commit the murder.
Mr. Munoz, represented by
George Nelson of Jackson-

Judge Phyllis Rosier and the

They also spoke of the psy-

of the burglary and shooting

their bedroom, a trauma that
drove them out of their own
home for a while.
The couple remains con-

but since they had no connec-

someone else's behalf or sim-

is shared by both police and

unable to uncover the reason
the Munoz brothers did what
they did that week between
Christmas and New Years.

Authorities were busy late
Tuesday piecing together de-
tails of an apparent murder-
suicide at a rented trailer south
of Macclenny.
A neighbor found the bodies
of Matthew Wilkerson, 33, and
his 25-year-old wife Jennifer
lying on the floor of the living
room about 6:40 pm, said Sher-
iff Joey Dobson.
The likely cause of death was
gunshot wounds,but the sheriff's
department was withholding de-
finitive confirmation pending
autopsies by the medical ex-
aminer in Gainesville.
The bodies were removed
from the residence of Ferreira
Lane about midnight. The lo-
cation is just\ west of SR 121
and south of Interstate 10.
The autopsy will also de-
termine the time of death, which
Sheriff Dobson indicated was
likely within 24 hours of the
discovery of the bodies.
Itwas notimmediatelyknown
how long the Wilkersons had
been married, but the couple
had been estranged. They have
three children, none of whom
were at the residence.
Mrs. Wilkerson had a fourth
child by another relationship.
Sheriff Dobson also declined
to comment on an earlier report
that she was pregnant pending
the autopsy.
A team from the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment was combing the scene.
later that evening. The neighbor
reportedly found Mrs. Wilkerson
lying face up on the floor, and
her husband lying lying across
her body.
Baker County's last murder-
suicide occurred in December,
2004 south of Sanderson when
a 37-year-old father asphy-
xiated himself and his 2-year-
old son.

What once was filthy, now is clean. Now it's
just a matter of who pays for the clean-up.
Enforcement officer Phil Thomas told the
Baker County Code Enforcement Board Mon-
day that a one-acre tract of land in Glen St. Mary'
belonging to Robert Smiley was finally cleared
of trash and abandoned vehicles, at county ex-
pense. The county contracted with Michael and
Jonathan's Landscaping to clean up the property
at a price of $1870.
It was the first time in its history the code
board ordered a forced clean up of private prop-
erty. The cost of the clean-up is being added to
liens already filed, on Mr. Smiley's property, and
to fines from previous violations of the county's
law against excess trash and refuse. All together,
Mr. Thomas told the board, Mr. Smiley owes the
county $9,584, which includes also recent daily

Press staff
A lengthy, contentious and
at times raucous Macclenny
City Commission meeting
ended late Tuesday evening
with the board agreeing to for-
ward a controversial develop-
ment plan to Tallahassee.
Warren Tyre, a Jacksonville-
based developer, came before
the commission Tuesday with
a preliminary plan for a 94-
acre commercial development
featuring two "big box" stores,
several hotels and a number of
restaurants, both sit-down and
fast food. Mr. Tyre said he had
conducted early discussions
with Cracker Barrel, Long-
horn Steakhouse and assorted
hotel chains. The development
is sited across from the new
Wal-Mart Supercenter, in the
northeast quadrant of I-10 and
SR 228.
Tony Robbins, a Jackson-
ville-based consultant working
for the city, told the commis-
sioners he reviewed the basics
with the city's staff and said it
would not have a deleterious
effect on local traffic patterns.
"We feel, on the whole, it's
a very good effort," Mr. Rob-
bins said.

Oldjailrestoration project in second month...
James Jennings, an employee of Raise and Restore construction company of Jack-
sonville, applies a primer coat of paint to a window casing on the second floor
of the old Baker County jail on Mclver St., currently undergoing a $394,500 first-
phase restoration. The contractor, who has similar experience on historic buildings
in northeast Florida, began work on the project three weeks ago. The county com-
mission awarded a reduced-prbject-bid in February, cutting out most of the interior
upgrades to the cellblock on the west side of the structure that hasn't been used as
a jail for more than three decades. It is currently occupied by the Baker County
Historical Society.

A Macclenny, woman was
arrested March 7 and charged
with smoking marijuana in the
parking lot of a local fast food
Deputy Greg Bursed ar-
rested Nastassia McKinney, 20,
at the S. 6th Street KFC and
charged her with possession of
marijuana and contributing to
the deliquency of a minor. Ms.
McKinney was with a 17-year-
old male at the time of the ar-
rest; he was also 'charged with
possession of marijuana.
According to Deputy
Burnsed's report, he noticed
Ms. McKinney and the young
man sitting in a Hyundai in the
KFC parking lot. The officer
states that when they noticed his
cruiser, Ms. McKinney got into
a nearby car, and that he smelled
marijuana when she opened the
window. Ms. McKinney con-
fessed to smoking pot at the
time. Deputy Burnsed said the
young man did the same when
approached by police, handing
over a cigarette box and telling
the deputy, "The pot's in that."
The deputy found a cigar
stuffed with marijuana leaves
in the original car, and residue
'discarded from the hand-rolling
of a marijuana cigarette covered
the floor board.
In another incident, a 16-year-
old Baker High student from
Sanderson was caught carrying
marijuana at school on April 5.
The student has no criminal his-
tory and the case was referred to
teen court.

Mr. Smiley's case first came
to the board in March of 2006,
but he has never appeared at a
meeting or discussed his case
with county officials. He was

In other business before the
board, a Glen St. Mary family
whose two trailers violate coun-
ty zoning ordinances was given
three months to find a solution.
Charlie Lewis owns a plot of
land at Cedar Creek Farms Rd..
His father William owns an ad-
jacent plot. Mr. Lewis' land is
zoned to allow one house per
7.5 acres; in 2002, he and his fa-
ther set up a mobile home for his
brother on the tract.
Though that was a violation,
the situation is complicated
by the fact that the Lewis fam-
ily received a permit in March
of 2002 granting it the right to
have two dwellings on the prop-
erty. That permit expired this
year, and an investigation by
Mr. Thomas revealed that it was
originally issued in error. Lewis'
property is part of a subdivision,
and as such does not qualify for
a special exemption.
Because the original permit
error was the county's, the board
was willing to give Mr. Lewis
and his family the 90 days to
find a solution. That will likely
involve removing the second
mobile home from the property,
an action Mr. Lewis is reluctant
to take.

The significant role of

'Peeps' in Easter tradition
S - low.


Another Easter come and
I like Easter. Not only for its
wonderful message of hope and
rebirth as my-pastor Sam Kitch-
ing so eloquently pointed out,
but because as major holidays
go,-it's pretty relaxed.
Christmas isn't relaxed by
any stretch of the imagination.
There's that fury of gift buying,
the obligatory visits to friends
and relatives to exchange gifts.
There's wrapping, and cooking
and wrapping and eating and
wrapping and forgetting which
gift goes to whom because you
were eating when you should
have been labeling.
Granted, my wife does 90%
of the work, as she does at all
holidays, but still painted by the
broad Christmas brush of holiday
imposed cheer. I think so many
people are miserable at Christ-
mas because they can't work up
the requisite manic good cheer..
Halloween, my personal fa-
vorite holiday, also requires some
effort. Costumes, decorating the
house and yard with scary stuff,
handing out candy and good-
ies all require a level of holiday
Easter is more laid back. Hey,
after all, it's the Easter Bunny
that does all the work. I just sit
back and enjoy the loot.
It's a funny thing about the
Easter Bunny, he's got his finger
on the pulse of what everyone
-likes. For me, the bunny brings
licorice and dark chocolate and
the occasional Cadbury Fruit and
Nut Bar or Rasinets.
For my son Dylan, the bunny
brings blue Peeps (those amaz-
ing sugar coated marshmallows
in the shape of chickies and bun-
nies), Skittles and Reese's eggs.
Daughter Sara Beth gets pink
Peeps, and a Cadbury cr6me egg.
Son Spencer's Peeps are yellow
and he gets two or three times
the amount of the creatures as his
brother or sister.
Spencer and his "Uncle" Den-
ny Wells once had a purple Peep
eating contest. After church, they
stuffed their mouths with pack-
age after package of purple Peep
bunnies until both of them were
foaming at the mouth. It looked
like a bad case of purple Peeple
As you can tell, the. bunny
tends to color coordinate. Sara
and Dylan have pink and blue
baskets while Spencer has yel-

This doesn't please Sara Beth
because she claims pink Peeps
do not taste nearly as good as
Dylan's blue variety. If she is the
first one up in the morning, her
brothers better watch out. Noth-
ing is sacred, including their
baskets, and she will discretely
devour a few of the tastier blue
and yellow chickies. Not-enough
that they would notice, however.
The Peeps .are always tastier on
the other side of the basket.
There are philosophical dif-
ferences at work in our -Easter
household and the Bunny is cog-
nizant of this fact. Being a north-
erner, my Easter traditions seem,
well, bizarre to my wife.
In the bosom of my family,
the Bunny would hide our Eas-
ter baskets. In fact, the Bunny
would often be so clever that my
sister and I really had to hunt for
them. A half hour might go by
before we ferreted out where the
rabbit had stashed the stash. If I
spotted my sister's basket during
my personal hunt, you could be
dead certain I wasn't about to
open my mouth and the same
for her. She would sit contented-
ly munching the ear off her big
chocolate rabbit while I pouted
and fumed and called the trick-
ster rabbit names.
Eventually, my basket turned
up and I stained my teeth eating
the black jellybeans nobody else
SThe Bunny, will on occasion
bow to my family's tradition and
hide the loot, although this year
it was out in plain sight.
Another unusual Gerard tradi-
tion is egg rolling. It was one of
our favorite parts of Easter, but
one that gets me some odd looks
south of the Mason-Dixon line.
We colored eggs like everyone
else, hide them and search them
out, but on Easter morning we
also rolled them. We sat on op-
posite sides of the room and took
the eggs we had decorated and
rolled them at each other. The
idea was to make them collide
like a pair of steam locomotives.
The one whose egg was bashed
and cracked the most after a few
hits was the winner.
Come to think of it, I'm not
really sure why the egg with the
worst side-impact safety rating
was the winner rather than the
I am huddled up on the couch
with half a Symphony bar as
company after a particulArly
pleasant Easter day. Here's an-
other difference between Easter
and Christmas.
Nobody ever returns anything
that they get at Easter.

Annual Easter glut of eggs generates

a plethora ofpreparation suggestions


This is the week everyone eats
lots of egg salad sandwiches to
use up all the eggs from Easter. I
miss participating in Easter egg
hunts, but just as it would be un-
seemly for an adult to knock on
doors and trick or treat at Hal-
loween, I had to let that custom
go the way of watching for the
tooth fairy and Santa Claus.
Scrambled and fried eggs are
a staple of the American diet and
breakfast just doesn't seem the
same without them. I've cut back
on my consumption of standard
breakfast fare for health reasons,
substituting oatmeal (with local-
ly grown honey, of course,) and
fruit instead.
But as a child, I loved a fried
egg sandwich and often made a
couple wrapped in wax paper to
take with me in the early morn-
ing when I went for a hike in
the woods or on the beach. The
hardest part was keeping the
dogs from getting that delectable
treat out of my hands with their
incessant begging and pawing
for a bite.
My father took on the role
of breakfast-maker early in my
school years and became in-
famous for making a strange
concoction he called a "ship-
wrecked sailor."
This consisted of placing a
piece of white bread with a hole

Mr. Robbins assured the
residents there were a number
of options for the northern bor-
der, including a masonry wall,
wooden fence or some kind of
natural barrier. He repeatedly
praised Mr. Tyre as a flexible
and responsive developer.
"We'll have to work with
you guys to find something that
works," Mr. Tyre said. "We've
been working on trying to mas-
sage all these dominoes so they
fit in the puzzle."
Mr. Robbins had each resident
write down their name and ad-
dress, and Mr. Tyre vowed to sit
down with the group andham-
mer out the contentious issues.

in the middle in a frying pan of
hot butter. Into the hole, Dad
would crack an egg. Since he
cooked everything on "high" the
butter burned, the bread became
charred and the egg turned to a
hard plug with a gooey center.
He'd slap these atrocities on
a plate, drown them with syrup,
smile proudly and say, "OK,
kids, eat up!"
Most of these gastric night-
mares were catapulted out the
back door as soon as he left the
room to get ready for work. The
dogs destroyed the evidence be-
cause, as you well know, dogs
will eat just about anything -
even potato peelings.
No dinner in the South seems
complete without deviled eggs,
which prove to be fairly consis-
tent even with the slight varia-
tions that show up in different
recipes. I've always enjoyed
sampling the offerings at church
covered-dish dinners. One will
have a dash of mustard, one a bit
of onion and another the tang of
sweet pickle.
I raised 4-H chickens and
their eggs were better than what
you get in the store. Some people
argue that isn't true that there
is no real difference in eggs
from your own chickens and
those raised commercially, but I
think there is. I remember them
being larger, with yolks a deeper
yellow than eggs from the mar-
ket. Old-fashioned cooks swear
that their pound cakes aren't the
same without the fresh eggs that
used to be so abundant.
I suppose nearly every culture

Warrants issued for two suspects

for shooting at vehicle and residence

Felony warrants were issued
last week for two suspects for
allegedly shooting at a car with
three occupants near the corer
of Mud Lake Rd. and CR 125
south of Glen St. Mary the eve-
ning of April 3.
The warrants name Maurice
Graham, 26, and Marcus Wil-
cox, 23, both of Macclenny.
Jason Jefferson, 24, of Sand-
erson said he was approached by
Mr. Graham while at the drive-
thru lane at KFC in Macclenny
about 9:00, and the suspect al-
legedly brandished a semi-auto-
matic pistol in the waistband of
his pants and ordered him out of
the vehicle.
Mr. Jefferson said he resisted
and remained inside, and Mr.
Graham then attempted to kick
out the driver's window of his
Toyota. Mr. Jefferson left the
restaurant and told police a
black Ford Taurus driven by Mr.
Wilcox with the other suspect
as a passenger blocked his entry
onto Interstate 10 from South
6th, then followed him as he

headed south on SR 121, then
west on Mud Lake (CR 130).
Deputy Greg Bumsed said he
responded to a report of shots
fired at Mr. Jefferson's vehicle,
and observed a vehicle with a
similar description to the Taurus
parked on Mud Lake near Bill
Davis Rd. west of the shooting
The vehicle was driven by
John Blanton, 43, who lives
nearby, and occupied by passen-
ger Otis Jones, 45, of Sanderson,
who was charged with posses-
sion of crack cocaine and drug
paraphernalia. The two told Cpl.
Bumsed they had been work-
ing in the area and police do not
think they were involved in the
earlier shooting.
Mr. Jefferson fled the shoot-
ing scene and telephoned police.
He was met and questioned near
I-10 and CR 229 south of Sand-
erson minutes later.
The Taurus and suspects were
not immediately located.

County approves thepurchase

ofa compacting
Press Staff
The Baker County Commis-
sion's first April meeting was
a light one, but the board did
give the go-ahead for a potential
$75,000 purchase.
The commission on April 3
unanimously told road superin-
tendent Robert Fletcher that he
could look into purchasing a vi-
brating roller instead of renting
it from Ring Power. A vibrating
roller is a tractor with an over-
sized drum for a front wheel,
and it compresses soil and rock
to pack it tightly together. The
vehicle is widely used in road
Mr. Fletcher has been try-
ing to find a vibrating roller for
years, and has recently rented
the one from Ring Power for
about $9,000. The company
told Mr. Fletcher it would sell
the equipment for $75,000. The
tractor normally costs about
$85,000, so Ring Power will
give the county credit for what
has been paid in rental fees. The

roller tractor

commission will approve the fi-
nal purchase agreement.

mission also decided to submit

Son robs parents to pay bar tab

Two Macclenny parents were
robbed on April 8 of $900 by
their own son.
Sharon Padgett, 51, told Dep-
uty Michael Crews that her son
Joseph, 25, had taken the money
from two dresser drawers in her
Hillside Road home. According
to Deputy Crews' report, Ms.
Padgett told him that'she con-
fronted her son, who admitted
to taking the money and using it
to pay off his bar tab at the 121
Ms. Padgett told Deputy
Crews that her son was unsuc-
cessfully battling a drug addic-
tion and had recently completed
a stint in rehab. Upon leaving
the facility, he began abusing
prescription drugs again. Ms.
Padgett asked that her son be
arrested so that he could get the

help he needed.
Deputy Crews arrested Mr.
Padgett after finding him at
his brother's house. According
to Deputy Crews' report, Mr.
Padgett admitted to taking the
money and using Xanax without
a prescription.
In another incident, the ex-
girlfriend of a Macclenny man
allegedly stole his car and cell
phone on April 5.
Tommy Allbright, 43, told
Deputy Randy Davis that Jenni-
fer McNurlin, 32, called him the
night of April 4 and asked him
to pick her up at the Emerson
Inn in Jacksonville. Ms. McNur-
lin supposedly told her ex-boy-
friend that she was struggling
with drugs and needed a place
to stay for the night. Mr. All-
bright picked her up and drove

her back to his residence, where
she stayed the night.
Mr. Allbright says that when.
he woke up, his truck and cell-
phone were both missing. Dep-
uty Davis attempted to call the
phone several times, but got no
Someone stole a cellphone
and an iPod Nano from a Baker
County High School locker on
April 6. Assistant principal De7
nise Mann told police the stu-
dent who is suspected left her
office and reported back to class
15 minutes later. During that
gap, two students allegedly saw
someone fitting the student's de-
scription picking at the lockers.
The male student from Sand-
erson denied any knowledge of
the theft.

to custodial team with meal, gifts

Press Staff
The PreK/Kindergarten Cen-
ter hosted a special dinner March
28th to honor the hard work and
contributions of the school's
custodial staff. Principal Sher-
rie Raulerson and the staff have
come to think of their custodi-
ans as "Building Angels" who
provide children with a clean,
healthy environment in which to
learn and play.
"We didn't want our building
angels to be overlooked," said
Principal Raulerson. Agreeing
that custodial staff is often over-
looked, the school decided to
make a concerted effort to rec-
ognize them.
Each building in the south
Macclenny complex sponsored
one custodian and furnished
gifts, cards from the children
and a food contribution to a sit-
down dinner'held-in the front-
office. Teacher Kelly McCarty
coordinated contributions for a
large gift basket that greeted the
custodians when they arrived
for work. The basket contained
goodies such as candy, cookies,

chips and hand lotions.
A table in the rear of the main
office was set and decorated for
dinner and sterling silver can-
dlesticks graced the centerpiece.
The five members of the all-
female custodial staff entered
wearing silver crowns, making
them all "queens for the day."
The group was delighted and
overwhelmed at the beautiful
table waiting for them.
As they took their seats, Prin-
cipal Raulerson announced: "We
wanted to serve you today and
we're honored to do so."
Ms. Raulerson, assistant prin-
cipal Bonnie Jones and,guid-
ance employee Shirley Crawford
served dinner and drinks, wait-
ing on the ladies as if they were
in a fine restaurant. By unani-
mous agreement, the favorite
item on the menu was a red rice
dish called "St. Paul's Rice.".
As desserts of key lime pie
and oatmeal cake were enjoyed,
Ms. Raulerson gave a program
consisting of a true story by in-
spirational writer Beth Moore.
She then praised the ladies for
their hard work and cheerful, en-

couraging personalities around
the children.
"A classroom is like a mission
field," Ms. Raulerson said. "Our
custodians are always there to
sweep. floors, clean sinks, catch
a loose lizard in a classroom
or anything else the children
and teachers may need." She
concluded the program with a
quote by Eleanor Roosevelt that
drew some chuckles and nod-
ded agreement: A woman is like
a teabag. You never know how
strong she is until she gets in hot
During the meal, one teacher
stopped by to deliver a card to
her building's custodian, who
burst into tears when she read
the messages from the children.
"I wanted to personally thank
you for all you do," the teacher
said. The dinner is an event the
ladies agreed they won't soon

The rare art of

Press Staff
Armed with an ice pick, but-
ter knife, golf tees, sponge and
water and yards of rattan cane,
Bill Krall practices the disap-
pearing art of chair caning.
Caning is the art of weaving
chair seats and backs with fine
strips of rattan cane. It requires
patience and a high level of skill.
The cane strips are also sharp
and can be hard on the fingers
and palms. Caning is definitely
a labor of love.
"I'm 63 years old and I've
been doing this for fifty-five
years," says Mr. Krall, owner
of Hole in the Wall Antiques
on Fourth Street in Macclenny.
"I've probably caned over 500
chairs during that time."
According to Mr. Krall, the
number of people who practice
the craft of caning has become
scarce. It's a labor intensive art
and can be expensive to the cli-
ent. Patience is also required of
the client. A caning order, de-
pending on its design and how
many orders are preceding it,
may require a three to six month
Caning is nota feasible option
for an inexpensive chair, unless
the cost is not an issue for the
client. There are circumstances,
usually involving the nostalgia
or sentimental meaning of the
piece that can override the cost
involved. However, Mr. Krall
tries initially to make customers
not familiar with the process of
caning understand that the chair
they paid forty dollars for may
require a caning job that costs
Yet, for the purist, hand can-
ing, especially to restore a valu-
able antique chair, is worth ev-
ery penny.
"When it's done properly and
treated with care, the cane will
last fifty years or more," says
Mr. Krall.
To cane a chair, a series of
holes are drilled around the seat
frame. A hank (bunch) of cane
strips which are usually six to ten
feet long are soaked in a bucket
of water to make them pliable,
then one at a time are threaded
through the holes.
Cane strips for chairs come in
six different guages (widths) and
an appropriate size is matched to
the size of the holes. The com-
mon standard caning method
uses the same guage of cane for
the entire job. Tapered wooden
pegs are used to stopper the
holes to hold the strips in place
during the process. Mr. Krall
has found that wooden golf tees
work well for this task.
Mr.Krall orders his cane from
a company in Connecticut called
H. H. Perkins. In existence since
1917, the company carries com-
plete seat weaving and basket
making supplies..
There are seven steps to can-
ing a chair. To begin, cane strips
are fed back and forth through
all holes on the bottom side of

On ~ ,

. --

Bill Krall canes a chair outside his Macclenny sh

the frame. A second series of
cane is then threaded vertically
over the top side. The process
is repeated horizontally, weav-
ing over and under the vertical
strips, again on both the bottom
and the top; then diagonally to
the left and right, creating the fa-
miliar pattern of holes that look
like they are surrounded with
An ice pick comes in handy
for routing out bits of wood in-
side the tiny holes that snag the
cane. The butter knife is help-
ful in lifting up sections of cane
when doing close work against
the wood frame.
The final step is called bind-
ing which secures all the strips
in place after the golf tees are
To create fancier patterns
such as Lace, Spiderweb, Star
of David, Daisy or Snowflake,
at least two different gauges of
cane must be used. The fancier
patterns are somewhat more del-
icate than the standard pattern
and typically are seen only on
the backs of Victorian chairs or
rockers.where they aren't subject
to as much pressure from use.
Cane is smooth and shiny on
one side, rough on the other. It
tends to twist as you are weaving
it and the craftsman must pay
attention to the surface as he is
caning to make sure his caning
job is uniform in texture.
During weaving, Mr. Krall,
periodically wipes the cane
strips with a damp sponge.
"They dry out as you work
with them and will snap easily.
There are times that you cuss a
lot when you're doing this," he
The chair he is currently
working on outside his shop
will require about eight hours
of work and is typical of most
of the caning jobs he completes.

Caning costs are determined by
the amount of holes in a chair
seat or back. If a chair back has
a sizable curve to it this will in-
crease the cost as extra work and
attention are required to adjust
the cane tension properly.
The over-all tension is impor-
tant. When a chair is finished,
Mr. Krall gives the cane a good
thump with his finger. If woven
properly it should hum like a
guitar string.
Mr. Kfall began learning how
to cane when he was only eight.
His mother bought two walnut
chairs at a farm auction in the
mid-1950s and had them caned..
Surprised at the price of can-
ing both chairs, the family sent.
off for an instruction booklet
and supplies and the young Mr.
Krall, through trial. and error,
taught himself the technique.
He's been caning ever since.
He recalls during his college
years in Pennsylvania, from
Halloween to Easter everyone
was "pretty much snowed in."
He caned chairs for people to
help pass time during the winter
These days Mr. Krall ap-
proaches caning with a love/hate
perspective. His enthusiasm for
his craft can depend on how
many jobs he has lined up and
what other projects he has going
on. There are times he's more
than happy to discuss a caning
job with a client. Other times
when approached about caning
he laughs, and says "I literally
feel my fingers start to cry."
A caner can also get a little
over zealous. Since Mr. Krall
deals in antiques, he often at-
tends estate sales and auctions
and finds it hard to pass up
perfectly good chairs that have
missing or damaged cane seats
and backs. He often buys the
chairs with the full intention of

restoring them, but that doesn't
always happen.
A friend once came into the
shop, looked around at a large
pile of chairs waiting to be
caned and said, "Good grief
Bill, there's forty-five chairs in
this room and not a single one I
can sit on!"
Mr. Krall has some advice for
keeping caning in good shape.
Keep caned chairs away from air
conditioning and heating vents.
Exposure can over-dry cane and
make it extremely brittle.
SEvery six months, take a wet
sponge and wipe over entire area
'of cane on both sides. It should
be nicely wet but not soaking.
The cane absorbs the water and
as it dries, any areas that have
begun to loosen will regain their
An important point not to
overlook is the condition of the
chair before caning. Make sure
the chair is structurally sound
and perform necessary repairs
such as staining or painting be--

to make the right decisions in life as I aidfor
you. Although seeming you're so far away, I
know you are with us in our dreams and we
have picnics together. I wish you were here,
but I know soon, we'll be together again.

The third present, "Protection". I know
with all my heart and soul, God and you
communicate to help keep us safe while we
are here. When your Dad and I found you
passed and I did all I knew to do, Irealized it
was too late for your physical body. I asked
you and God, if you must go, please come
back and be my little angel. I believe you
are our tree angel. But what is really ex-
traordinary is the way you are still working
from the other side from Heaven in your tree
business. Ijoke with customers, "yeah, our
office is here and his is there, referring to
the other side. They find it to be so amaz-
ing and it brings them hope as well. So many
of our customers have someone who has
crossed over at some point in time and often
they do not know why they call us other than
they just have a good feeling about us. Later
we discover when we talk, that there's a lot
in common with their loved one(s) and us.
You used to say when you had reached the
top of a tree, "Hey look. I can almost touch
Heaven." Well, now you can Al.

Cats beat Santa Fe

to take district lead

The Wildcat baseball team
split last week, defeating district
foe Santa Fe 5-1 on Tuesday at
BCHS. They lost 5-3 to West
Nassau on Thursday in a game
honoring former Wildcat Coach
Des Hamilton, who died last
Bobby Dugard pitched six in-
nings of four-hit ball. Dugard got
his 4th win of the campaign be-
fore closer Kenny Miller took the
mound to wrap itf. 'The Wild-
cats pounded out eight hits led
by seniors Adam Lewis and Rob
Kirkland, who had two apiece.
Kelly Davis and Chad
Schroeer had two RBIs in the
win. The victory moved the Cats
to 6-2 and the lead in the dis-
"Dugard threw well and gave
us the performance to move
ahead into the district lead,"
said Coach John Staples. "We're
coming into the home stretch and
need performances like his."
The Cats hooked up with

West Nassau on Senior Night in
a game honoring late coach Des
Hamilton, the Wildcat skipper in
the 1980s.
Both teams played well, with
West Nassau scraping out the win
at the baseball complex. BCHS
pounded out 10 hits, but was un-
Sable to get the runners across the
Dustin Rowe threw one-hit
ball throub-the firft five innings.
KeinythMiller and Ridge Sweat
came in after Rowe tired and athe
Warriors got eight hits in the last
two innings.
Lewis, Davis, Schroeer and
Kendall Hand each had a pair of
hits. "We didn't get the hits with
men in scoring position," said
Staples. "A lot of that had to do
With West Nassau."
The Cats are 14-7 so far this
season, and will travel to Cocoa
Beach on April 18 before host-
ing the district tournament April

Softballteam drops 2

despite hiding onslaught
I 0 0

The Lady Wildcat softball
team lost a pair of games the
past week as it prepares for the
last week of regular season play
before hosting the district tour-
nament. The girls lost to Clay
County in a 15-10 slugfest at
home on Monday and then fell to
Middleburg on the road Tuesday
The Clay County game
wouldn't exactly classify as a,
pitchers' duel. The Cats scat-
tered 12 hits in the loss and Clay
had 11 hits. In fact, both pitchers
were uncharacteristically wild in
a game that saw five batters hit
by pitches.
Clay got off to about as good a
start as any team could possibly
want. They went through their
rotation in the first inning, scor-
ing seven runs on five hits and
forcing BCHS to dig out of a se-
riously deep hole.
The Wildcats started to chip
away at the lead in their half
of the inning with four straight
singles from Jessi Nunn, Tif-
fany Smith, Ashley Holton and
Brittany Hansen. Hansen's sin-
gle scored Nunn and a fielder's
choice by Caitlin Griffis brought
Smith home.
The game stayed scoreless un-
til the bottom of the third, when
BCHS got right back in it with
a four-run inning. Smith doubled
and Holton singled. A Griffis
single brought in Smith.
Kristen Smith stepped up to
the plate and cracked a three-
run homer to narrow the gap to
a 7-6 Clay lead. Clay then pad-
ded it lead with a single run in
the fourth.
Baker County made things
very interesting in the bottom
of the fifth, scoring two runs to
tie the game. Hansen, who had
an excellent night at the plate,
singled and advanced to home
on an error. Griffis also singled
and came home on a single by
Heather North.
But with the game on the line,
the Cat defense blinked, com-
mitting three errors and allowing
Cla\ County itsssecond seven-
run inning, which sealed the win.
BCHS got back a pair with solo
runs in the sixth and seventh but
it was not enough.
Holton was 3-4 that night an4
Tiffany Smith was 2-2. Griffis
and Hansen were 2-4 and Kristen
Smith collected a trio of RBIs off
her home run.
The game against the Broncos
was a tight one for most of the
match. The Cats scored first with
a single run in the first inning.
Jessi Nunn singled and a double
Sby Ashley Holton brought her

Tennis teams head into districts

The Wildcat tennis team
wrapped up its season last week
and took this week to prepare for
the district tournament on Mon-
day and Tuesday at Bolles. The
Cats had a successful season,
with a strong overall showing
against both district and non-dis-
trict foes.
It was a season of change for
the young squad. Coach Chris
Armoreda sought to bring a new
attitude and a new identity to the
team. Armoreda, who stresses
conditioning, put the players

through a month of running and
agility drills that has paid off
with more wins.
"The season had its shares of
ups and downs," said Armoreda.
"Our inconsistent play early on
helped the players realize that
you just cannot hit the ball back
and forth without any purpose.
I keep telling the team that they
should not feel any sympathy for
the player across the court be-
cause they do not care about you.
All they care about is how they

are going to defeat you and they
should do the same too."
At the conclusion of last
week's game against West Nas-
sau, Armoreda honored seniors
Bobby Corn and Dylan Gerard.
He also thanked his wife Tiffany
and athletic director Melody
Coggin, who arranged for new
nets and screens.
The Cats are not expected to
go into the tournament as high-
seeds but have their eyes on be-
ing competitive.

Middleburg tied the game
in the second and then blew it
wide open in the sixth with four
runs on five hits. The Cats got
one back from Tiffany Smith
but it was too little too late. The
Cats will travel to Lake City on
Thursday for their final match of
the regular season against Co-
lumbia High.
