And that is a dras to avoid. It concerns me greatly if we have to dip into the reserves as much as we project, said Mar celle Richardson, the school dis If the outlook for state education funding doesnt improve, she said, We plan to dip into re serves next year, too. With $40.7 million in local, state and federal revenues and almost $46.4 in anticipated ex penditures, officials were left gap with unallocated reserve funds. The main thing that hurt Baker County schools is the same thing that has adverse ly affected school districts throughout Florida: the loss of millions of dollars in state rev enue, mostly from sales taxes that have declined sharply. We get most of our funding from state sales tax revenues and people just arent spending as much money as they used to, Ms. Richardson said. The tentative tax, or millage, rate is 7.833 mills, which equals about $7.83 for every $1,000 of taxable property value. At that rate, the tax bill on a home val ued at $150,000 after deducting the $25,000 homestead exemp tion would total about $979 for public schools. School districts are exempt from the additional $25,000 homestead exemption voters approved in 2008 for counties, municipalities and other taxing authorities.

For some, it was as recent as last May. For others, quite a few years have passed since that memo rable night. The Baker County Council of Aging held its annual prom for se Attendees, which included seniors, friends, family and COA staff and volunteers, reported this years prom, with its Tropical Paradise theme, was the most enjoyable and best attended so far. Some of the prom goers at the Senior Center shared recollections of their high school proms before the nights festivities. They included stories of homemade dresses, hawkish punch bowl monitors and, of course, the Jitterbug. Shirley Mackey was living in the small town of Nevada, Ohio when she attended her high school prom in 1957. The student body was small and she didnt have a date, but that didnt bother her at all. A lot of us just went with our friends, she remembers. We all danced together and had great fun. The Nevada High School prom was held in the school gymnasium decorated by the junior class. The students danced all night to records by Harry Belafonte and Nat King Cole and in the morning, breakfast was served to all the students and chaperones. My parents couldnt afford the expense of a formal gown for the prom so my mother made my dress, she said. The year before, her mother had also sewn a prom dress for Ms. Mackeys older sister. My dress was a complicated affair with lots of frills and details and Mackey. I remember her declaring she was glad she had not had to sew both dresses a the same time because she would have gone crazy trying to do it. Don Willis attended Ketterlinus High School in St. Augustine. That was 55 years ago, he said. They were picky about the gym 1950s style sock hop. Some of the girls even came in shorts, he recalls. Dances like the jitterbug, tango and mambo were big at the time and Mr. Willis says he danced them all, especially the jitterbug. Id pick up and swing two girls at once, he said.

Ryan Phillips, 26, entered multiple no contest pleas in cir cuit court that afternoon and was sentenced by Judge Phyl lis Rosier following a round of statements by relatives of his victims and others. Mr. Phillips admitted to in vading the homes of Sam and Mildred Anger on Fred Harvey Rd. and Reginia Williamson on Leon Dopson Rd. Both robberies occurred on July 17, 2010. He also plead to two counts of kidnapping Mr. and Mrs. An ger and two counts of aggravat ed abuse of the elderly. The vic tims were 78 and 77 at the time. Mr. Anger, who has Alzheim ers Disease, was beaten severe ly about the face and head. His wife had facial bruising and a serious contusion on the chest where she was punched. Prosecutor Ralph Yazdiya added the kidnapping counts because Mr. Phillips tied up the couple using TV cable after he beat them. Shortly after, the defen dant forced his way into the residence of Joel Barber and dragged his sister Ms. William son down a hallway after plac ing her in a headlock. He took money from her purse, but did not harm 90-year-old Rhoda Barber, the owners mother, or his daughter, age 10. Mr. Barber was not at home at the time.

It had all this scratchy lace up around the neck, I remember that, she said. Having married in the middle of her junior year, she found her self without a date for the senior prom because her husband was stationed in Korea.

The 7.833 millage rate is com prised of four separate rates, in cluding a .25-mill critical needs Legislature and approved by Bak er County voters last November. The additional levy will produce about $200,000 in the districts general operating fund, which will be matched by $400,000 from the state, Ms. Richardson said. We could have put the .25 mill in capital outlay but the state would not have matched it, she said. Any time we can get a match from the state, especially a two-to-one match, thats what we want to do. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson praised Baker County vot ers for their strong show of sup port for the district, which has been able to avoid layoffs and cuts in programs such as sports, art and music.

Shamefully, we were half ex cited and half skeptical, wonder ing if the kind voice on the phone was telling the truth. Next day at church, a little post-it note was delivered to us from the person who purchased the tires. It simply explained that they were paid for, and the kind voice had been real after all. At tached to it was a refund receipt from the store. This person is still nameless and apparently wanted to do a kind act without being known, and we are still astounded by that expression of love. We dont know what caused that person to do so, but we know God uses people to demonstrate His love, and when people do it is very effective. It prompted us to want to do more of that our selves. It may not be by purchasing a set of tires, but we will certainly look for a multitude of ways to show kindness each day even in the smallest of ways. So, thank you to our mysteri ous friend, and know that your kindness has had a contagious ef fect, and your anonymity left us with simply being able to thank the Lord for all blessings and you. He knows who you are.The Amy Rhoden family Cuyler LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor:I was very upset after reading last weeks article Protest after sex offender awarded custody to think that, while this family is trying to get this child back to Baker County, you and Todd Ferreira would take this opportunity to make this lady (Rita Crews) look like a bad person for not paying a funeral bill.

Instead of trying to make Rita Crews look bad, why didnt you aim your comments in the di rection of Judge Rosier? She is a lic an answer to your question, been why she found it necessary to put this child with a registered sex offender. I thought Baker County was Gods country. It cant be, be cause God loves the little chil dren and would surely stand up for them.

I am a former employee of hand the services they provide and the patients they help. I have never had a conversa tion with County Commissioner Michael Crews about the expan sion of the dental clinic or how it would affect my private practice. During the 12 years I have been in private practice, both my have grown and expanded. On occasion I will refer a patient to them if the patient is unable to afford treatment, and they refer patients to me for services they do not provide. In addition, the dental clinic does not accept private dental insurance reimbursement. Only patients who are self-paying, on Medicaid or Medicare, are seen there.

Let me take this opportunity, however, to re spond to some of the criticisms and questions posed in the let ters published this week. Our goal was certainly not to portray Rita Manning, Mirandas paternal grandmother, as the good guy or the bad guy, or to defend or assail Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosiers decision to award custody to Mr. Coleman. Rather, with extensive coverage of the case by First Coast News for nearly a week before last weeks edition was published, we hoped to offer readers information that might help to answer the question on every ones mind: Why did the judge rule the way she did? In most cases, a judge will ex plain his or her decisions in writ ing and those records are open to review by the media and every one else. In this case, however, public inspection, the judge had not spoken publicly about the case and reporters were barred from entering the courtroom during a hearing that followed the custody decision. Thus, we had to rely on other court records and comments from those pres ent at the protest July 18, all of edition. Information regarding Ms. Mannings criminal history was reported immediately following the details of Mr. Colemans criminal histo ry. If theres any bias there, its in Ms. Mannings favor. As the prevailing wisdom goes, the further down in the story some things presented, the less likely it is to be read. Civil court records were also reviewed by The Press from Bak er and Duval counties. The only relevant civil records we found pertained to the probate case of Trista Coleman, Mr. Colemans late wife and Mirandas biologi cal mother. Given the likelihood of future fund raising activities to sup to reverse the judges action, we believed that evidence of a 2007 fund raiser organized by mem bers of the same family for Trista Colemans funeral expenses, and the fact the funeral bill was not paid, were germane to the story, albeit not the central narrative. We attempted to contact Ms. Manning to give her an oppor tunity to respond to the funeral home directors comments and A message left with her daugh ter, Rebecca Graves, was not re turned and Ms. Mannings home phone number was disconnect ed. So, all that was included in the story was the explanation provided by Ms. Manning in a letter to the judge in the probate case. The storys lead, headline and photo all demonstrate the central narrative that protests were continuing against the judges decision and the paternal family remained committed to return ing Miranda to their custody. The rest of the story was background information intended to present context to readers about the peo ple involved in the story, includ ing Miranda and her three older sisters. The story did, in fact, point out who took part in the protest, both visually with the photo and in the story itself. It was clear only about a dozen people protested. ent, that wouldve been noted too. Our role is not to pass judge ment on who showed up and who didnt. Thats for readers to pon der. It may help to think of The Press as largely a mirror. We atwe can whats happening locally, not necessarily whether whats happening is right, wrong or morally grey. We save such sentiments for the opinion page. On Point In PrintJoel Addington With a new school year just around the corner and parents likely shopping for new school clothes, we asked our Facebook fans about the ever controversial topic of school uniforms. Heres what they had to say ...Jessica Hudnall: I hope they are not thinking about that! I like to dress my three little girls in cute clothes not plain uniforms! Tabitha Lacy Blackshear: Uni forms are not as easy as people would think. We had uniforms when I was going to public school in Louisiana, and you end up having to pay just as much for them. Robert Thompson: Uniforms would be good if there was a way to keep cost down. Some kids ridicule others if they arent wearing the latest fad clothing trend. Even if their parents cant aord it. Katie Robinson: On one hand I think uniforms would be a good thing, it would cut down on a lot of teasing and hurt feelings for the kids who cant aord a $150 pair of jeans and are reduced to wearing Walmart clothes (like the rest of us who are suffering through the recession). On the other hand though, I feel like uniforms would be more hassle than they are worth. No kid in their right mind looks forward to wearing a uniform. I also remember going shopping in high school for my best friends private school uniforms and it was horrid. It took forever and the uniforms looked hideous. Amy Fiser Collins: As a parent of a child who has previously gone to a private school there were advantages to uniforms. As far as cost, uniforms are everywhere now. Walmart, Tar get, consignment stores. So it can be cheaper. You do not have to buy as many shoes and dierent styles of clothing. I also see the other side of children wanting to be comfortable in what they like to wear. My person al opinion on children getting picked on for their clothing is weather it is a uniform or a pair of $100 jeans it will still happen ... Either way, I feel if the school ever made this decision then you have to trust the school knows best. That is why we send them there, right? Tyler Overstreet: Ridiculous. I think that uniforms discourage self expression and identity. Im all for them in private schools, but in public I disagree. Shelby Driggers: As a student in the upcoming graduating class of 2012, I couldnt tell you the last time Ive heard anyone get picked on about the brand of their clothes. I think its wrong to put someone in a uniform and take away their rights of self expression. On a side note, do you really think that the students would wear them? I see a lot of rebelling in the future if the schools decided this. Barry Melton: Dumb. Were turn ing our kids into robots. I think it kills individuality, and this statement is coming from a former Marine.Join The Press at Facebook.com. We post questions and updates about whats happening locally everyday.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, July 28, 2011In another recent arrest, a 14-year-old boy was charged with domestic battery on his mother, 40, at their residence off CR 139B west of Glen St. Mary. The mother told Deputy Tony Norman she had gone to the residence of one of her sons friends when he failed to return home the evening of July 21. When she confronted him, the boy appeared to be intoxicated, and at one point struck her in the shoulder. After they returned home, the mother said her son continued cursing and being belligerent toward other family members before she called police. Deputy Norman located the youth riding his bicycle nearby, and said he refused to calm himself and cursed when questioned about his conduct and alcohol use. The boy several times struck his head on the security cage in Local deputies on July 21 arrested a Lawrenceville, GA man wanted on a fugitive warrant in Connecticut and for a series of auto thefts and burglaries stretching from the Northeast to Central Florida. Darrell Banner, 28, was arrested outside the American Inn on South 6th in Macclenny about 8:45 that evening after initially running from police. They had been alerted via a GPS ping by Jacksonville police that a 2005 Lexus stolen in Lake County, FL was in the motel parking lot. Maj. Gerald Gonzalez, the sheriffs department operations chief, said several deputies converged on the motel shortly after 8:00 pm and, after learning the suspect was a guest who recently checked in, they ran the license tag on the Lexus parked outside his room. While attempting to get someone from the room to come to the door, Banner unexpectedly foot. A foot pursuit ensued, and eventually Banner attempted to return to the stolen Lexus where he was apprehended with the use of a Taser, said Maj. Gonzalez. An arrest report by Deputy Robert Simkins said the suspect ran from him and Deputy Shawn Bishara, circling south and then north around the front of the motel in an attempt to get back to the vehicle. He was twice tased by Deputy Jeremiah Combs before he was subdued Among the items found in the Lexus was an antique violin valued at $10,000. It was returned to the owner in Lake County. The inventory of stolen merchandise, some of it from the Jacksonville area, included electronic devices, phones, laptop computers, tools and a digital camera. Police placed the value estimate minus the violin at around $3800. Among the photos retrieved from one of the phones was one depicting Mr. Banner with a Mercedes-Benz. It had a discernible North Carolina license plate and matched that on a vehicle reported stolen. In other warrant-related arrests, Stephen Michel, 31, of Jacksonville was served with several others on July 20 after turning himself in at county jail. The warrants were from Duval County for burglary and failure to appear in court for sale of cocaine, and from Clay County for two counts each of burglary and grand theft. erson was also in jail when police learned he is wanted in Columbia County for violation of probation on a felony drug possession count. Mary was in county jail when served with a Baker County warrant for failure to appear in court. assault were added. Court records show Mr. Phillips, a convicted felon who has been to prison before and was released in attempted lewd assault on a victim less than 16 years old, theft and fraud. A court-appointed psychologist said the defenof his behavior during what was described as a twoday binge that ended when he was arrested by police in Columbia County following a tip by an acquaintance. Mr. Phillips said he had earlier controlled his addictions, but relapsed after a girlfriend ended their relationship. He said he broke into the residences to get money for more alcohol and drugs. The defendant, an honor graduate of Baker County High School, had been living with several relatives since his release, including his grandparents Raymond and Frances Phillips of Sanderson, friends of the Angers. The Anger couple did not attend the sentencing last week, but their daughter Cindy Rhoden spoke of the adverse effects of her fathers head trauma on the Alzheimers condition. what was before the attack a less pronounced stage of the dementia. Mr. Barber told the court his adopted daughter was traumatized by the event. Other speakers included the defendants grandparents, who were allowed to hug Mr. Phillips before he was led off. Ms. Rhoden at one point faced the defendant, declaring she has forgiven him for what he did to her parents, as has her father. Mr. Phillips acknowledged that he had allowed his life to slide with the addiction and apologized to the victims. He pleaded with the judge for a reduced sentence than that sought by the state, saying his life would be over with the 45-year term. Judge Rosier countered that prisons have a variety of programs steering inmates toward productive lives. The state dropped twin counts of aggravated battery on an older person as part of the plea agreement, tence because Mr. Phillips violated terms of his probation last summer when he moved. $ $ WE BUY TIMBER $ $ jected by years end. Ms. Busscher expressed regret that the new sidewalks would not be ready for the start of the 2011 school year, but said they should be complete or near completion when students go back to school after Christmas break. The work is being financed through a federal Safe Routes to School grant program at a total cost of $438,798, roughly half the original estimate of $837,000. The initial projection included money for sidewalks along a section of Lowder Street that was later included in a separate project. FDOT has hired CDM Contracting Inc. of Lake Butler and Freeman Design Group of Lake City for the sidewalk project. Similar projects have already been completed in Keystone Heights, Perry, Live Oak and other areas. Macclenny is one of the larger projects, according to Ms. Busscher. Construction will include building new sidewalks with handicapped accessibility features such as ramps for wheelchairs and matts (raised bumps) that alert sight-impaired pedestrians to the approaching corner. The project will also upgrade existing handicapped accessibility areas and install special emphasis crosswalks (SEC) with blinking lights and brightly painted grids and markings. An SEC originally planned for the intersection of 4th Street and US 90 has been relocated to East Boulevard and US 90. At the railroad crossing on East Boulevard, the existing automated crossing arms will be removed during construction and repositioned to block pedestrian vehicles on the road when a train is approaching. The new 5-foot-wide sidewalks will be located in four areas: North Blvd. from SR 121 N. to East Blvd., then turn south and run along East Blvd. across US 90 to South Blvd. There the walkway will turn west past the middle school and end at SR 121 S. from East Blvd. S. along four blocks of McIver Ave. and two blocks of Michigan and Minnesota avenues. Intermediate School will parallel 9th Street between West South Blvd. and Minnesota Ave. 23B will extend between the entrance of the Rolling Meadows subdivision east to Faye Street. The Press also asked its Facebook friends for feedback on the new sidewalks. Breener Repovich wrote, Yes, we really need more sidewalks because more and more people are biking and walking myself included. The reason we do get on the roadside or grass now is because people are supposed to share the road. Schell Barber wrote, The idea is great! I think the project should have been started over the summer though, not when school is going to start back! If they say its for the students to be able to walk to school then it should have been done before school starts. You have more and more kids riding bikes and walking to school and that is not safe! We need to keep our kids safe and not have an other accident happen! Regarding the prospect of new sidewalks, Anna Bell said, Go for it! She lives in Macclenny and says, My kids walk everywhere. Amanda Daniels wrote: I like the idea, but there are still some people that dont know how to use a sidewalk and I still see them walking or riding a bike along the road side and grass. So, if people would start using it, then Im all for it. Kathleen Johnson wrote: Sigh ... Another never ending construction project ... Arent there better uses for this money?

ursday, July 28, 2011 T B C P Page 7 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR email@example.comStephanie Hobson has reduced her cigarette smoking by more than half with help from a relatively new electric machine that can make 200 cigarettes in just eight minutes. Two of the RYO (Roll Your Own) Filling Stations, as theyre called, recently arrived in Baker County at one of Macclennybased R.H. Davis Oil Co.s convenience stores. I was up to two packs a day on them cheapoes up at the Taylor store, then I came here, Ms. Hobson said the afternoon of July 15, shortly after using one of the stations that began operating June 1 at the store on US 90 and Lowder Street in the west city. I get them made and have 10 packs that last me eight days. Theyve helped me cut down, and Im not coughing up nothing. They taste smoother and theres a lot less smoke in them because theres not all those chemicals ... she said, adding that she also has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD, a lung disbreathing. And while Ms. Hobson concedes she shouldnt be smoking at all, the 16-year Taylor resident believes her new cigarettes are also healthier than pre-manufactured brands. Theyre 100 percent natural. Theres not even glue on the paper, she said. But what really draws customers to the stations is the price of the RYO cigarettes. A carton of Marlboros, which contains 10 packs of 20 cigarettes, costs about $57, compared to the $27 cost of 200 cigarettes when they come from the RYO Filling Stations. The difference comes from the roughly $25 per carton in taxes added to the retail price of pre-manufactured cigarettes, said Max Davis of R.H. Davis Oil. Thats where pretty much all the saving is at, he said. Its a lot cheaper. There was a steady stream of customers at the stations July 15, busy pouring Kentucky Select Pipe Tobacco into the top of the machines and feeding in Hot Rod Tubes, the paper tubes and tobacco before spitting out the One customer, Jack Johnson, came from Baldwin for his carton. The RYO Filling Stations clerk Greg Burnsed said the high volume of buyers that day corresponded with payday for state employees. The shop typically sells about 40 cartons a day, he said. The two machines, cigarettemaking supplies and other products are separated from the rest of the convenience store by glass-paneled walls, all accessible through a single door with a sign warning that persons must be 18 years or older to enter. We can mix and blend [the get out there, minus the harsh chemicals, Mr. Burnsed said. Clerks like Mr. Burnsed are also prohibited from using the machines themselves to make cigarettes for customers. We sell them the products and rent them the machines, he said. The total price per carton is the sum of the price for the pipe tobacco, the tubes and eight minutes on the stations. Though changes by the state or federal government in how loose leaf tobacco is taxed could impact the RYO cigarette market, Mr. Davis said theres already been a federal court case supporting the current tobacco tax structure. But one stroke of a pen could change it to where were charging more or shutting down, he said. There are roughly 1000 RYO Filling Stations in 35 states, according to the companys web site. The site also notes that the stations are patent-pending heavy duty, professionally engineered and manufactured machines. Mr. Davis said the stations distributor, Silver Bullets LLC, doesnt recommend any more than one RYO Filling Station per 10,000 people, so buying the two stations in a county of about 27,000 people makes R.H. Davis Oil the only station owners in the county. You just have to buy the machines, he said. And theyre pretty pricey. One machine costs about $33,000. The RYO company has been selling handheld RYO machines for about $10 for some time. The advantage of the new stations, however, is they can produce a carton of cigarettes in eight minutes, instead of the three hours it would take using the handheld machines. ATTORNEYDavid P.

The next time theres an emergency at the home of 91-year-old Rhoda Barber and her son Joel, there will be no question that the correct address. But thats not always the case, said paramedic Becky Spitzer. In the more remote areas of the county, she said the addresses of many homes are not marked or the homes sit so far off the road theyre not visible to resresponders of valuable time they couldve used to help a citizen in distress. Nearly every dwelling in the county has a so-called -1-1 address consisting of a number and street name thats passed onto emergency responders by dispatchers. Their vehicles also have computerized maps that display the destinations locatrucks have them. Too often, however, dispatchers need more information to identify the correct residence, particularly if a number of homes are clustered in the same vicinity without numbers or numbers not visible from the road. In the old days it was, Take a right at the barn and a left by the big tree and go down half a mile, said Mr. Jacobs, whose been with Baker County EMS for 14 years. The address marker at the of about 100 signs county EMS workers will be posting in the coming weeks courtesy of the Baker County Sheriffs Office, which provided funding for the project. Each sign costs about $7. Were starting with special needs homes, said Ms. Spitzer, referring to a few hundred addresses of disabled or otherwise challenged residents. Some may have clearly marked addresses, others may have moved and still others may simply not want the new markers. We have to have the permission of the homeowner ... Some would rather not mark their house, she said. EMS director David Richardson said more signs could be ordered as needed in the future for homes without special needs residents. He described the initial distribution of signs as a pilot program. We want to see how this goes, he said. PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Paramedic Buddy Jacobs (left) and Doug Parker hang address marker.

PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGAN The technique of glass blowing was developed by the Romans in the middle of the First Century. You can still see this ancient craft practiced today at The Hot Shop, a glass workshop associated with the Chihuly Collection, a permanent exhibit that is part of the Morean Arts Center in downtown St. Petersburg. Dale Chihuly, founder of the world renowned Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State, established the gallery. A 20-foot aqua colored glass sculpture at the entrance greets guests. Viewing this artists work is a sensory feast for the eyes. The delicate and vibrantly colored glass forms are predominately inspired by objects found in nature. One series was around the huge glass sculptures and prominently displays several of the large scale chandeliers Chihuly is so famous for, like the Ruby Red Icicle Chandelier. The custom designed chandeliers are found in museums, symphony halls, private homes and public spaces throughout the world. The nearby historic Vinoy Hotel features one in its grand ballroom. The most stunning display is the room coral reef. Along one corridor, the ceiling itself is the display as every inch of space is packed with Chihulys colorful glass objects. Overall, it functions like stained glass window panels with light glowing through. After visiting the Chihuly Collection, its an easy trip by foot or car to the centers workshop, a mile and a half away, to see how they are created. The Hot Shop as its called, is a working glass arts studio where visitors sit in bleachers and watch artisans demonstrating glass blowing techniques practiced for thousands of years.

A Day AwayKELLEY LANNIGAN Flame blown glass at Hot ShopBOB GERARD | PRESS STAFF You know right off the bat when you go to see Larry Crowne, the new comedy with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, exactly what is going to happen. I am not surprising anybody when I say that by the end of the movie Hanks and Roberts are going to be together. The trick is how it is going to happen. And thats what makes Larry Crowne a charming movie and a great date movie. Its funny, its clever and it has Hanks and Roberts. What more can you want? Okay, its predictable, but so are most romantic comedies. You know that by the end the hero and heroine will get together, but that there are going to be a lot of pitfalls in the way. Larry Crowne (Hanks) has worked at a major Walmart-like department store since retiring from the Navy. He is the stores best employee, and has won eight Employee of the Month awards. He is up for another and in his heart of heart feels that he will win. When he is called into the managers office he is confident. But instead of winning, he discovers that he has been downsized. The problem, he is told, is that he has no college degree. He is underqualified in a economy where college graduates are looking for work. Devastated, Crowne decides to go back to school and enrolls at a community college. His advisor puts him into a business class run by a no-nonsense professor (George Takai) and a public speaking class taught by a burned out professor, Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who doesnt want to teach the class and tries to get it cancelled. Shes in the middle of a bad marriage, drinks too much and feels like shes in a dead end job. With little money and no prospects, Crowne sells his house and ditches his gas guzzler for a scooter that his neighbor (Cedric the Entertainer), who has a 365day yard sale, has in stock. The scooter is Crownes ticket to a new world. He meets and young scooter-riding student named Talia (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) who charms him into joining her scooter gang. She proceeds to give him a total makeover, with a new hair cut and clothes she finds at thrift shops. Crowne immediately applies himself at college and though he and his business professor tumble over Talia texting him during class, he excels. The one nut he cant crack is Mercedes, who thinks all her students are idiots and doesnt want to teach the class. Theres a lot of back story with Talia remaking Crownes life. Her boyfriend (Wilmer Valderama) isnt too sure about all the attention shes giving Crowne, but realizes theres no romance here. Mercedes, however, sees them together and jumps to conclusions that color her feelings about Crowne. The wonderful thing about this laugh out loud movie is that there really arent bad guys. Mercedes husband (Bryan Cranston) is as close as you come, but hes more of a jerk than anything else. Cedric the Entertainer is memorable, as is Gugu MbathaRaw. Cranston (HBOs Breaking Bad) is good as usual and Rami Malik as the Crownes dim-witted classmate is a joy. Naturally, Mercedes is going to bond with her class and with Crowne. Im not giving away any secrets here, thats just how these movies roll. Its not a fault, its what we expect. Larry Crowne is rated PG13. I give Larry Crowne 3 out of 4 stars.No surprises from Larry Crowne, still enjoyable rom-com THE OFFICE MART 110 South Fifth Street | Downtown Macclenny 259-3737 WE ALSO DO CUSTOM PRINTING!

PHOTO COURTESY OF QUENTIN MILTON Red Sox win senior league titleThe Red Sox team (shown) won the Baker County recreational baseball league senior championship recently 7-5 against the Rays to cap a 11-2 season that ended last month. Four teams competed in the roughly two-month league for 13-, 14and 15-year-olds at the Knabb Sports Complex. Elroy Goolage was the leagues volunteer director. He provided an excellent season that went smoothly, said Red Sox assistant coach Quentin Milton. He supported our needs, settled all disagreements and served as an umpire on several occasions. Pictured are (bottom row from left) Brodie Crews, Conner Overstreet, Tyler Curry, Colby Hathcox, Hunter Riggs, Jonathon Collingwood and Caleb Carter; (top row from left) Jacob Milton, Dalton Perry, Jarrod Sta ord and Chase Drury. Not pictured is Cody Martin.If you are a former Wildcat football player, BCHSs head football coach Ryan Sulkowski wants to hear from you. Last year, Sulkowski and the teams boosters instituted themed halftime programs during home games, and they would like to be able to honor past players this season. On the football teams website, www.bakercountyfootball.com, there is information that former the Wildcats stay in contact with their former players. Embracing the past as we move toward the future is important to the current Wildcats, said Sulkowski. So if you have shed blood for the Wildcats, please sign up. Sulkowskis wife Heather is in charge of club volleyball. The son and the girls have learned a lot and kept their skills honed. The coach believes it will help the high school team to have players at the club level. Ms. Sulkowski wants to get a jump start on the high school season by having a volleyball meeting for junior varsity and varsity volleyball at the high school this Thursday, July 28 at 6:30 pm in the PE portable. All high school age girls who intend to play volleyball this season should attend. Tryouts will be August 8 and 9 from 9-11:30 am at the gym. Among those pictured in the back row are Lake Lewis, Sam Yuhas, Kelsey Ray and Rilyn Jordan. Show in the front row from Football isnt just for the boys. The Baker County Touchdown Club, a local nonprofit youth football league for ages 6-13, is aiming to revamp its cheerleading program this season, which begins September 17. Melinda Lewis, one of three cheer program coordinators, said the organization has seen declining participation from 11-, 12and 13-year-old girls in recent years. We are concentrating on increasing sign-ups for this age group, she said by e-mail. We are also going to be recruiting coaches for the league with prior experience and working closely with all coaches to ensure proper technique is being taught for sideline cheer. Our goal is to keep girls cheering in Macclenny. Senior division (11-13 years old) games are held Monday nights at Memorial Stadium on W. Shuey Ave. in the city. We hope to emphasize proper motion, jumping, chanting and cheering form and incorporate sideline dances as well, said Ms. Lewis. Pee wee and middle division games are held Saturdays at the same location. The season typically runs through November and all teams participate in the BCHS Homecoming parade. The club also encourages participation from volunteer football coaches. The organization will try to assist coaches in any way possible to give the athletes and parents the best season possible, Ms. Lewis said. The club has new leadership this year, too. Roland Gaskins is serving as president and Nathan Welch vice-president. Melinda Lewis, Heather Lewis and Peggy Parrish are assisting with the cheer program. Participation in football costs $65 and only includes a jersey. The cheer program is $55, but does not include uniforms. Sign-ups are held Saturdays at the stadium from 9 am to 1 pm. Participants must show a birth certificate, proof of insurance and documentation of a doctors physical. Free physicals are available at the Dopson Family Medical Center August 11 at 4:30 pm. The goal of the club is to promote fellowship, sportsmanship and pride among local youth while teaching the fundamentals of football and cheerleading to enhance success in middle school and high school athletic programs.Youth cheer programLooks to retool for new season It isnt often that a Baker County athlete competes on a national stage, but Brandon Tuten of Sanderson is currently taking on all comers at the National High School Rodeo competition in Gillette, Wyoming. Tuten, a junior at Baker County High, is also in the running for the Rookie of the Year in bull riding. After the first round, Tuten was in sixth place in the cumulative bull riding standings with 80 points, just seven points off the leader, Casey Farmington of Collbran, Colorado. He had dropped to eighth place during the next round of competition with 80 points. Tuten is also in sixth place in the Rookie of the Year competition with 280 points. ing single game tickets with an end to the lockout looming. NFL owners have agreed to a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement that awaits approval from the NFL Players Association. How that vote will come out, however, is sketchy. There are still key points on the players side of this drama, so who knows how this will end. Bengal Chad Ochocinco commented that it was a smart move by the owners to gain positive public perception and pressure the players into a bad deal. One thing is certain, the NFL Hall of Fame game is off for this season. Even if the players agree this week there is no way to prepare for the game before its proposed August 7 date. The Jaguars continue to be optimistic. They hope to sell 17,000 additional tickets, which would help ensure that there are no blackouts this year. According to Jaguar VP Macky Weaver, that would help curb the negative attitude toward the Jaguars. We sent a message last year, Weaver said. This is an opportunity to slam that door and get us completely out of the conversation about going to L.A., get out of the conversation whether this market is big enough to support an NFL team.Call to former football playersTuten competes at national rodeo F LROBERT GERARD After School Program until 6:00 p.m.Improvement in self discipline through weekly instruction in Tae Kwon Dotesting for belt rank COPIESBlack & white/Full colorT O M110 South Fifth St.www.bakercountypress.com Advertising Deadline Monday at 5:00 pm NO EXCEPTIONS!
