The Baker County Commis-
sion ended a 10-month nego-
tiation process by approving.
an agreement with the Florida
Department .of Transportation
November 18 that will allow
more traffic on the interstate
before developers must fund
costly improvements.
Still, more work lies ahead.
The variance agreement;
which County Manager Joe
Cone said could pave the way
for about 7 million square feet
of industrial space and many
new jobs, doesn't become ef-
fective until the county meets
a number of conditions, includ-
ing adopting transportation
concurrency documents- that
determine exactly when devel-
opers will be responsible for
traffic mitigation like widening
the interstate, building parallel
roads or overhauling an inter-
A previous version of the
variance agreement referenced
an attached draft transportation
concurrency policy, a portion
of which two industrial devel-
-..: opers planning projects on the
east and west ends of the coun-
ty opposed.
The fix was to simply leave
out the attachment, not refer-
encing it in the variance agree-
ment, and dealing with the con-
currency issues at a later date.
"That's between the county
and the developers." said FDOT
planning manager James Ben-
Per the agreement, the coun-
ty has six months to adopt and
start enforcing transportation
concurrency laws.
Mr. Cone said ordinances
could be ready for the commis-
sion to consider as soon as next
"This is an important step for
Baker County after 10 months
of negotiations," he said.
The agreement also calls for
about $124 million in transpor-
tation improvements during the
next decade, about $48 million
of which would come from the
county's impact fees, gas taxes,
and grants. The remaining im-
provements are projected to be
"But if we don't get the jobs,
we won't have to make the im-
provements," said Mr. Cone.
said a quick decision would not
have been prudent.
"Very rarely do you get any-
thing worth its weight out of a
spontaneous decision," he said.
The variance was sought to
make the county more attractive
for industrial development.

Two killed

in fierycrash
An Alabama mother and daughter lost
their lives in a fiery two-vehicle crash on
Interstate 10 west of Sanderson the evening
of November 17.
Martha Boyd, 51, of Opp, AL and her 21-
year-old daughter Jessica Boyd died when
their Ford SUV caught fire after it slammed


into the rear of a semi-tractor.
Motorists who stopped at the scene in
front of the westbound interstate rest area
managed to pull Charles Boyd, 53, from the
burning wreckage.
He was flown to Shands Jacksonville
from the scene with serious injuries.
The driver of the truck, Nicolas Tauler-
Callejas, 68, of Hardeeville, SC, was not

Before Floy Barber passed away, son Ed Barber determined
he would learn to make the special dressing she always prepared By
for her family on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
"A lot of people of my mother's generation didn't cook from Kellej
printed or written recipes," said Mr. Barber. "Instructions were
passed on orally. You learned from another person and devel- Lanni
oped an instinct for proportions and measurements. Nobody
wrote anything down." P, ess t3a
Such was the case with the traditional Barber dressing.
After she lost her eyesight and most of her mobility, Mrs. Barber resided
in Mariner Nursing Home, now known as Macclenny Nursing and Rehab.
Realizing that the technique for the special family treat would disappear
forever if he didn't take some action, Ed Barber began visiting his mother
and through numerous conversations and lots of trial and error, finally
mastered the recipe.
"She couldn't write down any instructions, primarily because she .
had lost her eyesight, but also because she honestly didn't know exact. -..
amounts of any of the ingredients," he said. With mom, it was 'a little I
of this, some of that, quite a bit of that."'
Mr. Barber had the gist of the main ingredients to use, but -
figuring out the measurements took some experimentation.
Over several holiday seasons he conferred with his mother,
made the dressing and used his family as the taste-testers.
'I'd have to make it and if it wasn't quite right, describe s. "
it to mom and discuss what I might need to do to improve B .

to get it right."

The Boyds were the 13th and 14th per-
sons to die on Baker County roads in 2008,
and the accident occurred less than one
week after a Baxter girl was killed in a col-
lision with a log truck November 11.
The couple and their daughter were re-
portedly returning to Alabama from a fu-
neral in Jacksonville.

His mother's

it contains meat
and an unusual in-

"I had to learn
just the right con-
sistency to grind
the saltines," said
Mr. Barber, who
had used both
hand grinding and
an electric blend-
er to reduce the
crackers to just the
right coarseness.
"Grinding too
fine turned them
into powder which
could result in a
gummy outcome."
"When you mix
the crumbled corn
bread and saltines
together, there is a
certain consistency
and a certain look
it needs to have fdr
it to come out right

said Mr. Barber.

He mixes and tastes, mixes

The corn bread is always
made from scratch, not from
commercial mixes. The meat
is chopped turkey or chicken, a
good way to utilize meat from
less savory pieces like the neck
"I've used the dark meat from
chicken short thighs and that's
good, too."
That dressing is expected to
be present now at holiday family

that he hasn't written down a

Mary Finley, 81, former
Baker County home economics
teacher, estimates she has been
making dressing for 69 years.
She learned the basics from her
mother and over time put her
own spin on the recipe. Because
her dressing freezes so well, she
can make it ahead of the holi-

In some parts of
the United States
dressing is called
stuffing, no doubt a

direct reference to
the once common
practice of stuffing the cavity of
the turkey or chicken. Dressing
is a variation on a theme and re-
gionally takes many forms.
White bread may be the base
for it, eliminating altogether the
corn bread southerners prefer.
Ingredients can include sausage,
apples, oysters, chestnuts, cran-
berries and many different kinds
of herbs. Some Canadian recipes
call for the turkey to be stuffed
with ground beef and potatoes.

formulate an area-specific plan
to better protect Taylor from the
threat of wildfires.

Teaching kids to give

Touts Feed the Children'
Dear Editor:
Every year around this time, I know that a spirit of giving seems to
be present thank the Lord! So I thought it was time to get my son
Dallen involved in actively giving and teach him why it's so important
that he know things are "not all about him." This came to me when I
saw his huge Christmas list.
I wanted him to learn about children around the country and world
who would love a piece of bread or a blanket, instead of the latest toy.
We watched a TV program for Feed the Children and Dallen asked
me a question that broke my heart: "Momma, does Santa Claus go
to that part of the world?" I told him that I believe Santa does, but he
gives the children food and water instead of toys.
I researched that organization and found it is backed by the Better
Business Bureau. Dallen and I read about Change the World on the
Feed the Children Website. It's a program where kids gather change
and donated it to Feed the Children (both American and overseas).
Without my prompting, my son emptied his piggy bank, and that
told me he got the message. You may not be ready to have your child
watch a show like that, but I hope you will allow them to "Change" the
World with any coins they might want to donate.
If you are already involved with other charities this season, God
bless you. If not, we hope you will dig for some change and donate
what you can. Call me at the numbers below. We will have a yard sale
in the old Wal-Mart parking lot this Saturday, November 22 starting at
9:00 am.
Donate there and join me in teaching our children the importance
of giving.

assistance by

a mechanic
Dear Editor:
We want to tell you about an
experience we had while travel-
ing recently through Macclenny.
Last month we were return-
ing from visiting 'friends and at-
tending the National Street Rod
Nationals in Tampa and we en-
countered mechanical problems
with our 1948 Chevrolet panel
delivery truck.
While we were surveying the
problem (a rear axle rotated off-
center), a young man asked if we
had a problem. He recommend-
ed a repair shop, Robbie's Car
and Truck Service Center, where
owner Robbie Kirkland and his
staff identified the problem. They
repaired it in short order.
We were very impressed with
Robbie and his staff, and how
well-mannered everyone- was.
We were thankful for the fair
price we were charged for the
Baker County citizens need
to know what a credit this young
man and his staff are to the area.
We feel safer traveling because
we know we have a friend we
can trust in your area.
Having been in business 'and
serving the public for many
years, we recognize quality and
fair treatment.

Letters to the Editor,..

Will Obamas 'hope

be valid or just a myth?
Dear Editor:
The 2008 presidential election will forever have its place in the his-
tory of our nation.
Unfortunately, the probability of this historic moment being over-:.
shadowed by shattered expectations and diminished hope is more than
Due to the magnitude of the challenges and crises facing this nation,
it will be very difficult if not impossible for Mr. Obama to fulfill all .
his promises and meet the excessively high expectations of his sup-K
We can only hope that Mr. Biden wag 'not speaking prophetically
when he said that Mr. Obama would be challenged by an international
crisis within the first six months of his administration. In spite of our
spiritual, -political, philosophical, moral and ethical differences, my
faith compels me to pray for him.
During the course of this election, we heard a lot of campaign rheto-
ric about change. In the political arena, change is a process that re-
quires the identification of what needs to be changed, a strategy for
change and a commitment to change.
Although it does not represent a landslide-or an overwhelming ex-
pression of confidence in the Obama administration to effect change,
52% of the voters cast in favor of giving Mr. Obama the opportunity to
keep his promise to bring change to America.
If that 52% wanted to further demonstrate a desire for change, they
would demand that the reins of power be removed from the hands of
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid! That's not going to happen.
Mr. Obama's staff is already taking on the appearance of those
who have been immersed in the pool of Washington politic. That is
not necessarily a bad thing, but it does not reflect change! People are
worried, fearful, frustrated, discouraged and to some extent desperate.
The exacerbation of these powerful emotions seems to have created an
emotionally vulnerable climate in which people are diligently pursu-
ing hope.
Only time will tell whether the hope inspired by Mr. Obama will be
valid or just a misperception of reality.
America is and always will be the greatest nation on the face of the
Earth. I am proud of this nation and the men and women who defend
and protect her. In January, the torch of leadership will be passed to Mr.
Obama. He is arguably the least experienced and the least qualified in-
dividual to ever serve as commander-in-chief of this great nation.
However, if Mr. Obama will keep his word, fulfill his promises and
effect change, he will silence his critics and win the respect of this na-
tion. If not, 2010 will be a good year for Republicans, and 2012 will
be even better!

New River looking for place to park $3 million

Boardseeks highestfederally insured return from area banks

Mrs. Raulerson is sworn in...
Sherrie Raulerson, Baker County's new school superintendent, took the oath of office
during a standing-room-only ceremony the afternoon of November 17 at the school
board meeting room. She presided over her first board meeting the following eve-

Millions of dollars the New River landfill
has invested with Mercantile Bank's mon-
ey market accounts will be moved to more
stable certificates of deposit; the question is
whose CDs will get the cash.
The tri-county landfill's board of direc-
tors voted unanimously November 13 to au-
thorize landfill director Darrell O'Neal to
place the money where it will get the highest
rate of return while also being 100 percent
backed by the federal government.
Prior to the vote the board was presented
with the ratings of seven banks and the rates
of return on each bank's CDs.
Although Mercantile's six-month CD had.
the highest return, the bank also had the low-
est rating.
Mr. O'Neal said Mercantile's stock price
had declined about 85 percent in the last 12
months, and others like Citibank and Bank
of America had seen comparable losses too.
Capital City Bank rated higher and Mr.
O'Neal said the bank could purchase a num-
ber of CDs on New Rivers behalf, thereby
spreading the roughly $2.5 million into
$250,000 increments, which is the highest
amount that the federal government will in-

Capital City also quoted higher returns
than Mercantile on all but the shortest term
CD, which was six months.
Capital City quoted a 3 percent yield on a
six-month CD while Mercantile quoted 3.65
percent. But on a 24-month CD, Capital City
quoted 4.25 percent compared with 2.5 per-
cent at Mercantile.
Mr. O'Neal said that Capital City's CDs
seemed to be more favorable, but that he re-
ceived a letter from Mercantile saying that it
would guarantee all the money beyond the
first $250,000, which the FDIC would in-
In'that case on the six-month CD, "that
would be a better deal," said Mr. O'Neal,
adding that the bank would likely privately
insure the investment beyond the FDIC lim-
Board chair and Bradford County com-
missioner Ross Chandler thought such a sce-
nario was too risky in the current economic
"The [Mercantile] rating is not that great
even though they're saying the funds are
guaranteed," he said. "They're not saying
how they are going to do that... I have trouble
trusting anybody who says they're going to
guarantee that much money."

Board member and fellow Bradford com-
missioner John Wayne Hersey was also re-
luctant to keep the money with Mercantile.
"I know its in writing... but that sounds a
little farfetched," he said of the bank's guar-
Jon Wershow, the board's attorney, also
weighed in.
"The only guarantee I know of is the
FDIC's, and that's $250,000," he said. "The
people that would guarantee these funds are
companies like AIG."

The orientation was eye-

Aging Council sets up own store

Seniors are

using itfor

fund raiser

Press Staff
When folks think of The Bak-
er County Council on Aging's
Senior Center, they may simply
envision a place where older
people gather to play bingo and
Those activities certainly go
on, but these self-reliant, enter-
prising seniors also run their
own cottage industry within the
center's walls.
Yard sales have, been a tra-
ditional way to raise money,
but storing the donated items
between sales,was proving to
be challenging. Establishing a
monthly sale was one way to
handle the large amount of do-
nated items. Then one senior,
Betty Young, came up with an-
other idea.
A year ago, she suggested set-
ting up a store inside the center
on US 90 in Macclenny where
items would be displayed and
on sale daily. Mary Baxla, ex-
ecutive director, of the COA, ap-
pointed Ms. Young supervisor of
the project.
That's how The Country Store
came to be established.
Ms. Young and volunteers
cleared shelving covering nearly
an entire wall that was being
used for books and magazines.
The shelves now hold a vari-
ety of merchandise from 'shoes,
beauty products and linens'
to dishes, greeting cards and
decorative items. Clothing is a-
popular attraction and many of
the seniors purchase the shirts,

Ms. Young stocks the store shelves.

skirts, dresses, sweaters, pants
and coats donated to the center
on a regular basis.
"I really enjoy managing the
store," said Ms. Young, who be-
fore retiring worked as a server
at Morrison's Cafeteria for ten
years. "It gets me up, gets me
going and gives me something
to do."
The store keeps her busy ev-
eryday from -10:00 am-1:00 pm.
Donated items, which usually
arrive packed in boxes or large
bags, must be sorted, priced
and put up. Ms. Young man-
ages the money made from the
store, which goes back into the
activity fund. Because of this,
the seniors can sponsor many of

year, and you will be greeted with colorful flowers very neatly arranged around her
home. She has mastered the art of layering colors with boxwood, red salvia, dwarf

their own group activities such
as shopping trips and going out
to eat at restaurants.
"The store does well. Last
month, according to my records,
we made $200 from the sale of
. clothes alone," she said.
When it's time for the monthly
yard sales always held on a Sat-
urday, the store simply expands
to include the dining and activ-
ity area at the center. After lunch
on a Friday, volunteers sort and
price items stacked
on the dining tables. Furniture is
on display on the center's front
porch. A yard sale banner is
hung from the second story bal-
cony to alert the public and ads
are posted in the newspaper.

Annual Moose

holiday inner
The men and women of the
Macclenny Moose Lodge are
proud once again to invite the
community seniors to our annual
Thanksgiving dinner. It will take
place at the Macclenny Lodge,
150 S. Lowder Street on No-
vember 22 at 6:00 pm. We will
have some of the residents from
Moosehaven with us again this
year to help celebrate this won-
derful event. We look forward to
seeing you all again this year and
as always we plan to have a won-
derful evening.
This year the Council on Ag-
ing has graciously offered some
of our seniors transportation to
and from the lodge for those that
want to attend. For this service
you will have to contact Trans-
portation Services for the Coun-
cil on Aging at 259-9315. They
ask that you call as early as pos-
sible on November 20 to sched-
ule transportation to the lodge.

"This is a better way than be-
fore," said Ms. Young. "We don't
have to move and set up tables
outdoors and if it rains, it's no
big deal. The merchandise is
protected and customers come
The seniors purchase a lot
of the items themselves, but the
nicest aspect of the store is that
anyone in the community can

come and shop for items during
the weekday mornings. It isn't
necessary to wait for the month-
ly yard sale.
Ms. Young contends that store
is great for the center and run-
ning it helps keep her young.
"But then," she jokes, "I'm al-
ways 'Young.'"

Four decades in the car

Rick Rielli, finance manager of Pinev-
iew Chevrolet in Macclenny, has been in the
business of selling cars for 40 years.
Mr. Rielli has seen lots of changes in the
way automobile dealerships operate, from
his first job selling Toyotas in Alabama to
his current position with the county's sole
new car dealership.
"I'm so happy to be where I
am today," said the 70-year-old
Mr. Rielli, a native of Jackson-
ville. "It's great to be working
for a smaller dealership that's
holding its own, especially in
this uncertain market."
When his professional career
as a musician and promoter in
the entertainment industry ran
its course at the very end of the
1960's, he decided to go into a
business that had always inter-
ested him.
"I needed a different liveli-
hood, so I went with something
I had always loved cars," he
That interest took root .in
early childhood. Raised at
Jacksonville Beadh, he remem-
bers sitting on the street corner
just to look at the cars.
"I'd bet you anyone my age
remembers sitting on the curb
with his buddies and calling
out the name, model and year
of cars as they passed by," he
said. "Back then, Americans
had a love affair with the au-
tomobile that's been unrivaled
* The young man loved cars,
every make and model, the an-
tiques and the modern designs.
"Why do you think the stor-
age compartment of a car is
called a trunk?" he asks. "Be-
cause that's what it used to be.
There was a rear area where an
actual trunk was attached. You
carried your tools in that. The
glove box it was for gloves which you'd
need to x ear to use the tools when .N ou had to
work on the, car, often on the side of the road
when it broke down." '.,
The car afficionado remembers being en-
thralled with such models as the Stuts Bearcat
Torpedo and Bobtail Speedster, the elegant
Dusenburg which only royalty and movie
stars drove and the Ford Starlight coup.
"I loved the Studebaker," he said. "It was
so big at both ends, you didn't know it if was
coming or going."

e affair began as
According to Mr. Rielli, when WWII w
at its peak, cars weren't being manufacture

and rubber were designated to the war effc
The relative unavailability of cars made the

People came back from the war with mo

vas paper to prevent passers-by from seeing in-

eel On a specific evening at a designated hour
)rt. the cars would be unveiled and people stood
em in line to get inside to see the new models.
Some lucky people could get tickets for a
on- special preliminary showing before the un-
ing veiling.
;, a "It was all very secretive and exciting and
quite a production. 'The Greatest Show on
be- Earth' wasn't the circus, it was the new car
showing," said Mr. Rielli.
i The.hype surrounding each
year's crop of new models was
so much apart of American
culture that Norman Rockwell,
famous for his illustrated cov-
ers of The Saturday Evening
Post, used the idea as the sub-
ject for one of his paintings.
A young boy is shown trying
his best to see through a crack
in a fence surrounding a car lot
where the new models are be-
ing stored until show time.
Back then, dealerships didn't
maintain the huge inventory on
their lots that they do today.
Clients test drove a demonstra-
tor car at the dealership, placed
orders for their new vehicle and
often waited several weeks for
it to be delivered.
Mr. Rielli was 14 when he
got his restricted license, but
taught himself to drive' be-,
fore that. The son of a restau-
rant owner, he used to fiddle
around with his father's car in
the parking lot
"When dad was busy inside,
I'd start it up, work the clutch,
jerk it all over the lot. I also had
a dune buggy that I'd been driv-
S. ing for a while, too. You didn't
need a license for that."
At that time, a dune buggy

tury Fox operated a theatre hub in Jacksonville that distributed films
and supplies to all the theatres in the city. The young man was hired
to drive the theatre van there and pick up the films, popcorn, oil and
Mr. Rielli recalls how he was sometimes allowed to keep the van
to go to Fletcher High School where he was a student. Since he le-
gally wasn't supposed to be driving, he parked it out of sight and then
walked to class on foot.
"I was driving to school to attend my driver's education class and I
wasn't supposed to be driving at all," he said with a laugh.
At 15 he was able to ge.t his first car, a used '49 Chevrolet that cost
$250. Mr. Rielli made $14 dollars a week at the theatre. His father ac-
companied him to the bank where the young man discussed the terms
of a loan with the president. When they reached an agreement, they
all shook hands. There was no contract.
"Back then you could do that," said Mr. Rielli. "That's something
that has really changed."
By the early '70s, the car industry had evolved a great deal. Dealer-
ships began to be located in the suburbs where before they had always
been downtown.
"Remember, after the war, there weren't that many cars and most
women didn't even drive. The dealerships had to be easily accessible
to people by bus and train. That changed eventually, as women began
driving and multiple family cars became more common.
Mr. Rielli's introduction to sales was a challenge. Toyota cars were
just being introduced to the American market and they were a tough
sell. Eventually, the Toyota's better gas mileage, low cost, reliability
and easy upkeep began to garner them favor. Mr. Rielli credits the gas
crunch in the 1970s as being a "real wake up call" and more and more
consumers switched their loyalty from domestic to foreign brands.
"Boy, did I get a tongue lashing from my father when I went to
work for Toyota," said Mr. Rielli. "He was a firm believer in Ameri-
can-made cars."
The process of buying a car underwent a lot of changes. He remem-
bers when people simply walked into a dealership with cash in their
pocket and ordered their car. If a loan was necessary, the salesperson
personally accompanied the client to the bank to secure it.
"Many of the changes involved the addition of a lot more personnel
at the dealerships'and the process started to include a lot more nego-
tiation," said Mr. Rielli.
Buyers now deal with sales managers and appraisers as well as the
salesperson. Financing procedures expanded and the incorporation of
trading in the value of your used car as part of the negotiation became
c"Computers streamlined the process a great deal, he said. "Used to
be contracts were completely written out by hand and there could be
several days waiting for approval. Now credit is checked, financing
arranged, a duplicate of the exact tag is produced and the customer
can be on their way in a new car sometimes in less than an hour."
Mr. Rielli came to Pineview last March after years working for
much larger dealerships. He loves the hometown atmosphere and giv-
ing the best service he can to customers.
The ability to deal with customers one-on-one is the most reward-
ing aspect of his work, something he claims is nearly impossible in
the larger dealerships.
"Here I get to relate and interact with the owner, which I really
value," he said. "At the larger dealerships, you might not ever see the
He believes that the current economic crunch is only temporary.
"Americans still love their cars," he says. '"When this economy
turns around, I fully believe the auto industry will come back and
when it does, it will be stronger than ever!"

Wildcats vanquish Conqucors

with running game, stiff defense

In his wildest dreams, Coach
Bobby Johns probably couldn't
have imagined the Wildcats
would travel to the Westside of
Jacksonville and hand Trinity
Christian a 42-0 skunking Friday
night. Certainly Conqueror coach
Verlin Dorminey never imagined
such a thing could happen.
After all, the Conquerors were
7-1 going into the game, with
running backs who had multiple
200-yard games rushing the foot-
ball. They had dominated most
of their opponents and on paper
at least a good match
fer,the Witdeats', .." .
But Johns. had the \\ildcats
ready to, play football. They
weren't holding back in prepa-
ration for Friday's playoff game
with the St. Augustine Yellow
Jackets. They had come to the
Westside to win.
Even though he had preached
not looking past Trinity, Coach
Johns knew he would have some
guests in attendance at the match
who were not rooting. for either
side. St. Augustine sent coaches
who were watching the action
like hawks and taking copious
notes on what they saw.
What they got to write down
on their clipboards was very lit-
tle about the width and breadth
of the Wildcat offense. Johns and
his staff had decided early to give
away very little to St. Augustine
coaches they knew would be in
What they got to see was the
most basic of basic Wildcat of-
fenses. Probably all told, the
Cats ran half a dozen different
plays. It was "pound it up the
gut" football on Friday night and
the Wildcat offensive line made
absolutely certain that it was go-
ing to work.
With that kind of football, the
success or failure of the game
plan is all on the shoulders of the
line. They responded better than
even Bobby Johns could have
expected. The line controlled
the line of scrimmage and con-
sistently pushed Trinity off the
ball. Not even in their 33-21 loss
to state finalists Tampa Catholic
had the Conqueror defense been
handled to that degree.
Defensively, the Wildcats
were just as dominating. They
harassed the vaunted Conqueror

running attack, stopping them at
the line of scrimmage. Their lead-
ing rusher had 5 yards that's
right 5 yards rushing. The Cats,
on the other hand, had 386 yards
rushing and both Greg Williams
and Hank Farmer had over 100-
yard games. Williams finished
with 164 yards, including an 80
yard smash up the middle for a
score. Farmer had 106 yards.
Williams opened the scoring
in the first quarter with a 2-yard
plunge on the first series and then
got a second on a tidy little pitch-
out from Darvin Ruise. Ruise got
in trouble as he sprinted around
the end and at the last minute
dropped the ball back to the trail-
ing tailback. Williams powered
past the Conqueror defense and
that was that. After two series,
the Wildcats were up 12-0.
They continued to pound the
ball down Trinity's throat as the
half progressed and offensively
the Conquerors managed next to
nothing running or throwing the
ball. They hadn't been in a game
like that and got more and more
frustrated as it progressed.
Hank Farmer scored the
third touchdown for BCHS and
added the 2-point conversion to
give BCHS a 20-0 lead. The fi-
nal touchdown of the half was a
strike from Ruise to Jarvis Sim-
mons. Ruise ran in the conver-
To demonstrate how domi-
nating the Wildcat defense was
on Friday night, the Conquerors

didn't get their first 1st down of
the night until there was only
three minutes left in the third
The Cats' first score of the
second half was probably the
most exciting. Williams broke
off tackle through the line and
outran everyone, including the
Conqueror's top back Rashard
Knight, to the endzone. The 80-
yard scamper and Ruise's con-
version put BCHS up 36-0.
The final score of the night
came after freshman Mardreakus
Ford picked off a pass. Farmer
drove to the 15 and Simmons ran
it in for his second touchdown of
the night.
The Cats face arguably their
biggest test of the year on Fri-
day night when they travel to St.
Augustine to take on the 10-0
Yellow Jackets in the first round
of the playoffs. The Cats were
knocked out of the playoffs last
year by St. Augustine and there's
nothing Coach Bobby Johns
would like more than to return
the favor.

the 49ers, not Cecil Horne.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency
and Florida Division of Emergency Management
have received the following application for Federal
grant funding. Final notice is hereby given of the
Federal Emergency ManapenMpRt Agency;s (FEMA)
'.:,:,.- ranjil:n to provide funding in the'form of
H3j;5r Mligjirn itrini Pr,:',irrm Funds aill be
provided-in accordance wiri Si:lion 4-04 oi the
Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency
Assistance Act, Public Law 93-288, as amended.

Under the National Environmental. Policy Act
(NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and
evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social,
economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safe-
ty considerations. Under Executive Order (EO)
11988 and EO 11990 FEMA is required to consider
alternatives to and to provide public notice of any
proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or
wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide
the opportunity for public participation in the plan-
ning process and to consider potential impacts to
minority or low-income populations.

Funding for the proposed project will be condi-
tional upon compliance with all applicable federal,
tribal, state and local laws, regulations, floodplain
standards, permit requirements and conditions.

Baker County Emergency Management
1190 W Macclenny Ave
Macclenny, FL 32063

Project Title:
Reid Stafford Road, Flood Mitigation Improve-
ment Project (FEMA# 1545-107R)

Location of Proposed Work:
The area affected by this project consists of
homes in the following locations:
Reid Stafford Road in Baker County, Florida,
from a location approximately 1/4-mile west of
Fred Perry Road west approximately 1.32 miles
to a location approximately 1/2-mile west of Bill
Davis Road.

Proposed Work and Purpose:
Replace existing culverts and raise the road
profile elevation in order to elevate the road above
the 100-year base flood elevation.

Project Alternatives:
The alternative to the project that has been and
will be considered is the no action alternative. This
alternative to the proposed project is not viable
because repetitive flooding is not alleviated and the
needs of the community would not be served.

- Comment Period:
Comments are solicited from the public; local,
state or federal agencies; and other interested par-
ties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts
of the proposed project. The comments should
be made in writing and addressed to the Florida
Division of Emergency Management, Bureau of Re-
covery and Mitigation, 2555 Shumard Oak Blvd.,
Tallahassee, FL 32399-2100. These are due within
15 days of this notice. The State will forward com-
ments to applicable regulatory agencies as needed.
Interested persons may submit comments, obtain
more detailed information about the proposed
action, or request a copy of the findings by con-

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, November 20, 2008 Page 16

City eyes water saving measures to increase withdrawal

City Engineer Frank Darabi
wants to roughly 'triple the
amount of water the city can
withdraw from the aquifer for
its three water treatment plants.
He told city commissioners
during their meeting November
18 that the 1.4 million gallons
per day allowed under its five-
year consumptive use permit
with the St. Johns River Water
Management District is enough
for now, but a new permit allow-
ing four million gallons per day
would, "secure the withdrawal
we need for the next 20 years."
Mr. Darabi also wants to
replace the city's three five-year
permits (one for each plant)
with one, 20-year permit for all

the plants, which will one day
be connected to form a looped
However, the water man-
agement district has made its
approval of the new permit con-
ditional upon the city taking a
number of water conservation
measures first.
The measures include:
Requiring new homes use
water-saving shower heads and
Adopting lawn watering
Establishing a leak detec-
tion and elimination program.
Adopting a new rate struc-
ture that encourages conserva-
tion by charging more for water

used beyond a specified thresh-
old, 1000 gallons per day for
The city commission unani-
mously authorized Mr. Darabi
to begin implementing the pro-
posed measures, some of which
would be funded through a
$250,000 grant from the state
Mr. Darabi said the money
would be used to retrofit and
eliminate damaged piping at
the Macclenny II water plant on
Crepe Myrtle Street southeast of
the city.
The funds will also be used to
install isolation valves in certain
pipes susceptible. to bursting to
minimize water loss.

Yet another project under the
grant will replace existing water
meters with meters than can be
read remotely.
The board voted unanimous-
ly to purchase the materials for
these projects using the grant
funds and tasked Mr. Darabi
with seeking three bids for the
installation work.

BCMS honors undefeated football team

Press Staff
The annual Baker, County
Middle School sports banquet
was held November 13 with
special awards being presented
to seven members of the once-
again undefeated Bobcat foot-
ball team.
Dozens of bright blue Bobcat
jerseys and bunches of red, white
and blue balloons were used to
create a festive backdrop for the
awards ceremony.
A highlight of the banquet
was a special appearance by
University of Florida tight end
Tate Casey.
Mr. Casey, who hails from
Texas, commanded the stage
with his imposing 6-foot, 7-inch
frame and easy-going, direct
"The involvement of parents
in their children's lives from an
early age is a most important
thing," said Mr. Casey, who also
spoke of the merits of'hard work,
discipline and above all educa-
tion. He urged parents to support

their children in football, and
push them to succeed, but only
if the child really wanted to play.
If not, that same level of support
should extend to whatever area
of interest the child wanted to
."For me, football opened so
many doors.and opportunities,
most importantly a free educa-
tion," he said. "You can't put a
price on that."
He emphasized to the audi-
ence of students and parents the
importance of getting a degree,
stating that it was virtually im-
possible to get anywhere in the
world today without one.
"It's not like twenty years ago
when, if you were a great foot-
ball player, your grades didn't
really matter," he said. "Today
your performance in the class-
room is as important as your
performance on the field."
Mr. Casey wrapped up his
talk by answering, questions
from the audience.
The audience wasn't shy:
How much can you bench press?
When did you first start playing
football? How long do practices
last? What are you doing tonight
after you leave here?,,.
When Mr. Tate shared that he
was doing laundry for the next
game when he got home, the
crowd laughed, but one young
man was incredulous.
"You have to do your own
laundry?" he asked in a stunned
"Of course," said Mr. Casey.
"That's part of it, too. You're re-
sponsible for yourself. Nobody
gets you up in the morning.
That's your job."
BCMS head coach George
McDuffie (Mac) announced that
in all his years at the school, the
current 25 players were the best
group he had ever worked with.

He credited their performance
to the fact that the team was like
a family. He also discredited any
criticism of the team.
"People wanted to know what
happened to our performance
during that Madison game and
I don't make excuses," he said.
"But remember we had 22 kids
against the other team's 53. None
of our team went down, but three
of theirs had to be picked up off
the ground."
Coach Mac praised his team
for playing clean, hard football
and how that same approach can
benefit students in other aspects
of daily living.
"This is about hard work and
how much heart you've got," he
said. "Hard work in this society
pays off."
The! coach also believes his
players are all winners before
they even step out onto the field.
BCHS football coach Bobby
Johns also had praise for the
school's football teams and em-
phasized the district's over-all'
record of 41 wins and only 8
losses over the last two years.
He echoed the sentiments and
advice of Tate Casey and Coach
Mac and spoke on the impor-
tance of developing good char-,
"When colleges started look-
ing at prospective players they
now ask about character what
kind of person you are not
just, if you can play ball and
make good grades.
"This is about choices and
how the decisions you make
today and the habits you form.
when you are in middle school
may effect your opportunity to
play college football," he said.
Awards were presented to Lo-
gan Fox for special teams, Dylan

Mills was named defensive play-
er of the year, Falon Lee gar-
nered the offensive player honor,
and the academic award went to
Kevin Thomas for his 4.0 GPA.
Shawn Green and Darius
Green shared the most improved,
player award and Craig Moses
got "The Mac Attack" award.
Other groups and individuals
recognized at the banquet were

Dancing Paws, the Baker Coun-
ty Football Booster Club and the

The city commission also
received a presentation from
Donna Mountain of Kendale
Development, the company
which owns the unsold lots in
the Heritage Oaks subdivision
in northeast Macclenny.
The presentation outlined
Kendale's plan to alleviate flood-
ing problems within the subdi-
vision. The plan has received
approval from the water man-
agement district.
The plan calls for piping
water that was flowing onto
neighboring properties, and
also back into the subdivision,
from adjacent wetlands to East
Boulevard, then north to North
Boulevard for disbursement

Assistant city .manager
Roger Yarborough said that
Kendale should also construct
a roughly 700-foot sidewalk
from Islamorada Drive inside"
the subdivision to the entrance
at the comer of East and North
Although the sidewalk was
not included in Kendale's devel-
opment agreement with the city,
Mr. Yarborough said city ordi-
nances require it nonetheless.
He also said a child was
recently struck by a vehicle after
getting off the school bus at the
subdivision's entrance.
Ms. Mountain said she priced

the cost of the new sidewalk at
about $17,000.
"It isn't that we're not con-
cemed," she said, "There isn't.
any money... We're financing
the homeowners association
with credit right now."
She added that if more homes
get sold, then the sidewalks may
be added sometime next 'year,
but not now.
Mr. Yarborough responded:
"One kid's already gotten hit out
there... and one child is worth
more than $17,000."
Commissioner Floyd V.
Bennett asked Ms. Mountain if
Kendale would commit to split-
ting the cost of the sidewalk
with the city.
"It's out of the question this
year," she said. I
