Were at a go or no-go decision point, County Manager C.J. Thompson told commissioners during a board meeting on September A decision is expected later this month or next month after bids have been received from contractors. The architect in charge of designing the structure, Erik Kasper, told the board a few weeks ago that the engineering work would be completed by the end of August and that construction could begin as soon as permits were pulled. Mr. Thompson told commissioners that he advised the architect to hold off on obtaining permits until he had spoken with the board to determine whether they wanted to move forward with the project or not. Commissioners indicated a clear preference for completing the project, which was originally part of a plan to alleviate crowding at the courthouse. The state grant was predicated on a commitment to Im in favor of honoring the previous commitment made by this board and move forward, said Chairman Michael Crews. Commissioner Gordon Crews expressed a similar sense of responsibility to the courthouse. Were obligated to provide space for them, he said.

Mr. Barber died in 2005, leaving behind a legacy of art and influence that still resonates with many people of the county he called home. An assortment of art from the collections of friends, family and local businesses will be on display at St. James Episcopal Church at 50 W. Minnesota Avenue from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm the day of the celebration. The exhibit will close temporarily during the Sesquicentennial parade at 10:30 am and then reopen afterwards. Mr. Barber taught art at Baker County High School for many years and gave art lessons at his home and studio in downtown Macclenny. He was an active participant in arts groups in Jacksonville as well. His paintings often featured scenes of rural life in Baker County, portraits and the orchids he loved to grow. His most noteworthy creation is a massive three-panel mural, now permanently displayed in the lobby of the courthouse chronicling the countys history from prehistoric times to the present day. When Carol Baker, a longtime student and friend of the artist, moved to Baker County 38 years ago she assumed she would have to commute to Riverside in Jacksonville for art lessons. When she discovered Mr. Barber was teaching in the community, she was delighted. I thought I had died and gone to heaven, she said. Ms. Baker was Mr. Barbers student for years and under his tutelage went on to establish her own mural business and study under several artists in New York City. Gene was my mentor, she said. He was such a personable teacher, always encouraging students to do what excited them artistically. It was he that suggested I do pen and ink renderings of many of the old homesteads around the county, even locating and arranging for me to see them. He even encouraged her, at one point, to take on her own students. When she hesitated, feeling she was competing with him, he brushed off her concerns. Gene was a remarkable teacher and a remarkable person, she said. Lin and Magi Taber of the Glen St. Mary Nurseries Company have one of Gene Barbers paintings in the dining room of their historic home. The painting features a glimpse of a traditional Cracker-style house through a grove of cypress oaks. The artist painted white Cherokee roses growing around a path lined with the oaks and leading to the house. The painting reminds Mr. Taber of the Old Florida of his youth and there are several houses much like the one in the painting still standing on his property today. The painting was for sale at a local festival or some similar event, said Mr. Taber. When I saw it I just had to have it. Another former student, Cathy Mendolera, became enamored with Mr. Barbers art as a teenager and then later of the man himself. He was my hero, fabulously talented and the epitome of all things simply southern, she said. He was generous with his work, too. You could always count on Gene to donate money.

You are not going to build that building for $700,000, Mr. Fraser told commissioners. The board is going to have to come up with some (additional) money. Finally, the board agreed to have the county manager advertise the project and solicit bids from general contractors. Once they know how much the project will cost, then they can decide whether to bite the bullet and the project and return the states money. All right, well start working on it, Mr. Thompson said. If the project is postponed it would be the second time that has occurred in two years. A budget crunch forced the plans to be temporarily halted in 2009 when then-County Manager Joe Cone said there wasnt enough money Instead, county staff was moved into the former sheriffs building, including the building department, grants department, environmental services and planning and zoning. The architect told commissioners in June that the new county building, which is to be ly $95 per square foot, which would put the total cost at about $931,000.

Mr. Crews said it disturbed him that the county had no choice but to pay it, yet the county cannot afford to give its own employees a 3 percent raise to compensate them for the statemandated retirement contribution. inspector for the City of Macclencounty at a rate of $20 an hour, including site plan and construcsystems reviews and other related services.

Gerald Gonzalez said Deputy Combs was responding south of Sanderson. The occupant reported hearing and seeing someone on her property and had locked herself in a rear room. Upon arriving at the scene of the burglary call, it was determined that a burglary had not occurred, and there was no evidence to indicate a burglary had occurred, said Maj. Gonzalez, the sheriffs department operations chief. Damage to the cruiser was estimated at $7000. Since there were no injuries or other vehicles involved, the sheriffs department is conducting the accident investigation. Deputy Combs is on temporary suspension pending a review of the incident to determine if department policies were violated. Like so many others, she owns some of the artists original works.

Two years ago, when a Gene Barber painting titled Looking back in time was donated to a Christmas auction sponsored by the Baker County High School director of the chamber, was the highest bidder. The painting became part of a small collection of Barbers work town Macclenny. It was important to me to acquire the painting because Gene played such a vital role in preserving so much of the history of our county, he said. The painting is also special to portrait. The artist painted himself gazing down a country road, looking back in time at the county he so loved.

With the Sesquicentennial coming on in about two weeks, its time for another glance down memory lane at some little known Baker County his tory. I wish I could claim to have dug this up, but at least I can give cred it where credit is due. Most of my information came from Gene Barber with a little extra leg work from me, but not enough to get me out of breath. da once held up the results of a presidential election for over a month? Sure, you say. Everybody knows that. Bush and Gore in the Supreme Court. Well, thats true. You can watch it all take place in the won Recount with Kevin Spacey. But Im talking about the election, and the time when Bak er County played a big part in de ciding who was the president of the United States. Lets set the stage. Its 1876, eleven years after the end of the Civil War. Reconstruction is still occupy most of the South. Republicans have run the gov ernment since Lincoln was elected in 1861. The South is staunch next 100 years, to the degree that at one point they will be called But things are changing. Even Northerners are getting tired of having troops in the South and strength north of the MasonSamuel Tilden of New York and Rutherford B. Hayes of Ohio, are running for president. The elec tion is too close to call. In a repeat of Bush/Gore, the lar vote. But Hayes wins the Elec toral College. It all depends on a few disputed counties in the South. One of those is Baker County. Gov. Mar cellus Stearns shocked to discover that Baker County sent three different sets after the election. One set showed Hayes, the Republican, winning by a landslide. The other showed Tilden winning by a large margin and the third went for Hayes by a small margin. Stearns, a Reconstruction Re cious. Though he would love to declare for the fellow Republican Hayes, Baker County had voted Republican and the chanc es of that happening were slim. Stearns had his people tele graph the county seat in Sand erson, but they could not get through. They kept trying and soon decided that the telegraph lines had been cut. Hmm. Sanderson but they never arrived because the train tracks had been ripped up. Hmm. These were the wild and woo ly days of politics. We complain today about negative campaign campaign in Baker County, it was said that political activists or disappeared into the swamps The Klan was very active and blamed for a lot of what was go publicans and Republicans What it boiled down to was that in Baker County and a cou ple of counties in Louisiana and Mississippi, there was no way to determine which votes were the real votes. It was left up to the election committees in the states. Strangely enough, Republican Governor Stearns didnt leap to ratify for Hayes. He didnt like the mischief that was going on in his state and wanted to get to the bottom of it. But he was also a shrewd politician and had a hid den agenda. Stearns met with Hayes of ratify the contested votes for Hayes if the new president would remove all federal troops from the South and end Reconstruc tion. He agreed and Stearns cer tified the Baker County votes for Hayes, despite the fact that Baker County had never voted Republican and wouldnt for an other hundred years. The special election commission awarded him the hotly contested election and within a month of taking of troops from the South. Heres where the history takes a confusing and controversial turn (as if the rest wasnt). Soon after the election Barber reports that the courthouse at Sander son burned to the ground along with the election records. That in itself is suspicious. Others con tend it never happened and even Barber was a little iffy about it in later years. Its certainly another twist in the already twisty tale. So there you have it. How Bak results of a presidential election. The massive construction site that is Ground Zero has been shrouded from the public view for some time as workers rebuild the World Trade Center.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, September 8, 2011 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR email@example.comThe districts three highest grade level schools Keller Intermidate, the middle school and high school failed to reach benchmarks set in their statemandated School Improvement Plans for 2010-11. With input from school advisory councils consisting of faculty and parents, each school is required to write an improvement usually based on student FCAT performance, attendance and discipline, to measure improvement year-to-year. Principals from each district school reported their results the evening of September 6 to the school board. Keller Intermediate, which was labeled a D school by the state this year, was only able to achieve one of the 13 goals included in its 2010-11 improvement plan, perhaps the most lofty of which was to become an A school. That can happen when you set your goals so high, Gail Griffis, Kellers principal, told board members that evening. ... Its very disappointing, but were not done. Keller slipped 2 points in the percentage of students meeting high standards in reading, from 76 to 74 percent, and in math, from 69 to 67 percent. The school lost 10 percent in the same benchmark for writing and 4 percent in science. The share of students making learning gains in reading and math also fell by 6 and 10 percent, respectively. Ms. Griffis pledged to continue setting high goals for her students and faculty, and was applauded by board member Patricia Weeks for her tenacity. If theres one thing about Ms. Weeks. BCHS principal Tom Hill left board members with a similar message after telling them the high school failed to meet seven of 11 objectives in its improvement plan, though progress on three of the goals couldnt be determine until next month. Mr. Hill noted that while FCAT scores rose in a number of areas like the percentage of 9th and 10th graders making reading gains or reading at grade level, which each jumped 3 percent the improvements fell short of the benchmarks in the improvement plan. The aim to reach 80 percent of 9th and 10th graders scoring at grade level on the math FCAT, however, was met in 2010-11 when 81 percent of those students did so, compared to 77 percent the previous year. If we set the bar at where we thought wed go, we would not be where want to be ... I believe in setting the goal at where we need to be, he said, adding later that the state continues to raise standards for students, particularly in reading, each year. Your board understands fully the situation your up against, while encouraging Mr. Hill. By 2014, we all know well have to have every student performing at grade level. And I hope we do. The middle school also missed most its goals, partially meeting two of 13 in the schools improvement plan. The school set out to have 30 percent of students score a 4 and 15 percent a 5 on the FCAT math tests 5-point scale, but only the latter goal was reached. The other goal partially met was to increase the number of parent volunteers and the number of volunteer hours. While the number of volunteers surged more than 500 percent, the hours dropped nearly 9 percent. Im going to set my goals high again next year and I may be sitting here telling you the same thing that we havent met our goals, said BCMS principal Sherry Barrett. But were not going to set them lower just so we know well meet them. Westside Elementary, Macclenny Elementary and the PreK/Kindergarten Center were the district schools to meet most of the goals from their 2010-11 improvement plans. The Pre-K/Kindergarten Center hit seven of its eight benchmarks, including those related to reading and writing skills, but missed its goal for attendance. Attendance is still something we need to work on, said the centers principal Bonnie Jones. The school saw a 2 percent increase in the number tardy students. Westide Elementary reached most of its objectives from the school improvement plan in academic areas and pushed its attendance rate from 95 to 97 percent. The number of students serving out-of-school suspensions, however, spiked from one the previous year to eight in 2010-11. Macclenny Elementary met 23 of its 25 benchmarks. In other business this week, the board: erty tax, or millage, rate of 7.833 mills and accompanying budget of $54.2 million. The property tax rate is equal to about $7.83 per $1000 of taxable property value. That means a homesteaded property valued at $150,000 with the $50,000 homestead exemption and a taxable value of $100,000 would pay about $783 in school district levies. tant contracts as follows: Rock Rhoden of Macclenny for BCMS assistant football coach at $1500 through November 9, Freddie Smith of Macclenny for BCHS assistant football coach at $2,575 through June 30, 2012, Lonnie Andrew Norman, Jr. of Macclenny for BCHS assistant boys basketball coach at $1595 through June 30, 2012, Phoebe Nipper of at $525 through June 30, 2012, Jonathan Gaskins of Sanderson for BCHS assistant boys basketball coach at $1390 through June 30, 2012, Justin Burnham of Glen St. Mary for BCHS assistant band director at $1030 through June 30, 2012, Jerrod Rhoden of Macclenny for substitute instruction in BCHSs new Global Logistics course at no charge through June 8, 2012 and Mary Brandenburg of Gainesville for K-5 writing instruction and training at $800 per day (not to exceed two days) through October 28. team, coach and athletic director to St. Marys, GA for a football game September 13, the BCHS drama club to the Petit Jean Performance Festival in Morrilton, Arkansas the last week of October and the BCHS chapter of Future Farmers of America to the 84th National Convention in In-BAKER COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD $ $ WE BUY TIMBER $ $ www.countryfcu.com COUNTRY FEDERALCREDIT UNION Is your bank changing names again?rfntbn Switch to Country Federal Credit Union.Receive FREE checking, FREE Visa debit card, FREE checks, FREE I-Pay & Home Banking, FREE E-Statements and worry free checking.Contact a Member Service Representative for the details.

Page 6 T B C P ursday, September 8, 2011 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR email@example.comVelveeta ... fudge? Its cheese and chocolate. It doesnt go together to me, but Im going to try it, said Norma Jean Hartline. Its supposed to be amazing ... And its very unhealthy. The desserts recipe calls for cocoa, Velveeta and a heap of butter and sugar, among other ingredients. Its one of more than 100 recipes posted to the Easy Home Cooked Recipes Facebook page created last month by Ms. Hartline of Glen St. Mary and her friend and former co-worker Kristin Simmons of Macclenny. They founded the page as a place where Facebook users could swap quick and easy recipes, tweak and experiment with them and share comments about the results. I wanted other peoples recipes, explained Ms. Hartline two days after publishing the page. I wanted to be able to come home and throw these things together and make a meal. The Mint Magazine production manager and mother of two, and step-mother to two more, all ranging in age from 11 to 22, said their inspiration for convenient cooking came from another site dedicated to sharing crock pot recipes. It all started when Ms. Hartline, 41, was talking on the phone to her best friend and Ms. Simmons mother, Christina Griffith, about a crock pot recipe for lima beans. I got to thinking about it ... and thought, We could put this on Facebook, said Ms. Hartline. Then Ms. Simmons, 23, got on the line and they began to hatch a plan for the Easy Home Cooked Recipes Facebook page. gether at Mint Magazine and carpooling to Jacksonville Monday through Friday. Ms. Simmons recently left the job to pursue a registered nursing degree. She also created a simple logo for the page. I wanted a down-to-earth, amateurish logo, said Ms. Hartline. The page was published on August 30. That next morning I had four likes, she said. It went from four to 150 and just kept going and going. Then I started networking it and going to other peoples pages and saying I liked their recipes and asking them to click to like our page. Within two days, the Easy Home Cooked Recipes page had been liked by more than 1000 Facebook users. When users click the like button on a page, ed to Easy Home Cooked Recipes. More than 1600 users liked the page by September 6. Its huge, Ms. Hartline said late last week after breaking 1000 likes and 67,000 views. Im surprised I have 300 friends on my regular Facebook. And those are just the people I know ... Its just crazy. I would never believe it. Ms. Simmons, who recently married and now attends Florida Gateway College in Lake City while pursuing freelance photography work, was also very enthusiastic about the pages popularity. Its been really cool to see the interaction weve gotten back from it, she said. Its something wed really like to grow ... Were really excited about it. Both women said the Velveeta fudge recipe, shared by Jennie Mae Wroubel of Green Cove Springs, was one of the oddest dishes posted to their page. Many more, however, are variations of more common fare like chili, casseroles, pasta dishes, meatloaf and soups. Facebook users post their favorite recipes to the page and other users can ask questions or leave comments for the original poster. Ms. Hartline and Ms. Simmons manage the page, re-posting recipes to its discussion section to build a directory of recipes. They are also encouraging visidishes along with the recipes. The photo section of the page helps categorize the various foods, too, even if theres no photo to accompany the recipe. Photos on Facebook are arranged in titled albums, and Ms. Hartline has been culling similar recipes into various albums. So far theres albums for alcoholic drinks, side dishes, main dishes, casseroles and sandwiches. After clicking on the desired album, users can hover their cursors over a particular photo (either of the dish itself or the Easy Home Cooked Recipe logo) and the name of the dish will appear. Clicking on the desired dish will give users access to the recipe for that dish. Ms. Hartline envisions busy soccer moms cruising the grocery store and going to Easy Home Cooked Recipes on their smart phones to get ideas for the evenings dinner. She and her partner want to eventually spin-off the Easy Home Cooked Recipe Facebook page into a stand alone website. Its just a fun hobby that we hope something will come of it, said Ms. Simmons. Though neither woman considers herself a chef, they are hardly novices, either. I dabble a little bit, said Ms. Hartline, who grew up on a farm in Baker County and remembers picking vegetables and watching her mother spend most of the day in the kitchen. The problem with a lot of recipes Ive tried before is theyre so hard to do, and having a 40-hour-plus job, its hard, she said. For me, its hard to cook all this stuff and buy all this stuff. Ms. Simmons says shes not much of an experimenter when it comes to cooking, but if you give me a recipe, I can make it all day long and make it as good as its supposed to be. One recipe she recommends, chicken divan, is from a book of recipes that Macclenny Elementary School put together. Ive tried it and my husband is obsessed with it. It calls for cream of chicken soup up with cream of mushroom, she said. Its quick and easy. Its something everybody can make with the stuff in their pantry.

ursday, September 8, 2011 T B C P Page 7 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgGail Kirkland is the mother of six children and grandmother to a dozen more. But the Georgia Bend resident is also known as Mama Gail to more than 40 other young men who are locked up in prison, including an inmate on death row. She sends them Bibles, writes them Happy Birthday letters and mails other regular correspondence, always with an unaddressed envelope and stamp so they can respond easily. Its all about the Lord, she said of her ministry-by-mail activities. Its getting the Word into their hands and then getting them teaching materials. The Bibles are provided by Taylor Church with help from other congregates like Wendell and Janice Combs and Kim Strickland. They also attend a weekly service at Lake City Correctional Facility where Ms. Kirkland leads a Christian-based prison outreach program. She was honored recently for her volunteer work with inmates at the facility, where shes spent 11 years befriending, counseling and educating prisoners. The long-time homemaker was among seven volunteers selected for the Pete Speckman Volunteer of the Year award from the Corrections Corporation of America, which runs more than 60 prisons across the country including the one in Lake City. Ms. Kirkland was nominated for the award by the prisons chaplain and Macclenny resident Tim Cheshire. The inmates she works with said they appreciate her frankness and passion for Christ. She never lies or mistreats us and opens our eyes to the spiritual battle around us, said Christopher Taylor, an inmate at Lake City Correctional. Another offender at the facility, Lamont Downs, said, She teaches straight from the Bible and is not opinion driven. Thats young Christian needs. The other award recipients, hailing from Arizona, Kentucky, Kansas, California, Georgia and Florida, joined Ms. Kirkland in Nashville, TN on August 17 for a recognition ceremony and brunch with the companys brass and the awards namesake, Pete Speckman, plus a tour of the companys headquarters. [Mr. Speckman] is a little itty-bitty English fellow, but hes really dynamic, said Ms. Kirkland when interviewed by The Press last week about her experience as a mentor to young male offenders. The award was established in 2009 to honor those in the companys prison outreach programs. Mr. Speckman is the director of prison outreach for School of Christ International. Ms. Kirkland began her ministry at Taylor Church in 1997. She founded Addictive Behavior Broken from Above, or ABBA, after her youngest son became addicted to drugs. She said he was using for two years before she and her husband Kenneth discovered the problem. Needless to say we got a crash course in substance abuse, said Ms. Kirkland, a Tennessee native before living in Carollton, GA and across the Georgia line after her marriage in 1983. Today the son is off drugs, has two tours in the Air Force under his belt and resides in Atlanta. But the ABBA ministry continued, serving as an alternative to the idea that addicts will always be addicts. As Christians, we dont believe that, she said. A second support group started in 1999 in Glen St. Mary and received a visit from the Lake City Correctional chaplain, Mr. Cheshire. He later invited the ministry to hold weekly services at the prison in 2001. It was identical to the ministry on the outside ... The focus was that youre where youre at, in prison, because of the choices youve made, she said. Four years later, a faith-based program consisting of two classes was added to the weekly service. One is a character-building class called Principles of Living, and the other known as School of Christ, consists of learning to be a Christian directly from the Bible. I make it very real while keeping the focus on the Lord, said Ms. Kirkland. I try to make it as relevant to where they are and what theyre doing as I can, so they know its real. When asked if shes ever been scared or frightened while working with inmates, Ms. Kirkland said, without hesitation, Never. Thats partly because she believes shes been called by God to prison outreach and partly because she counsels young men, who often see her as a mother or Lake City Correctional houses men ages 18-25. If you treat them with respect, they will treat you with respect, she said. Im very straight with them when I teach. Her experience with one prisoner, a young black man named Terrence, was particularly rewarding. She called him a poster boy for faith-based prison outreach programs. Terrence was serving time for a violent crime, but became a good mentor to fellow inmates and really a person of faith, she said. Other inmates often would ask her to pray for them before a court hearing and ask God to bring them a favorable result. Terrence, on the other hand, never made such a request. When I asked him why, he said I dont want to leave one minute before God thinks Im ready, because Im not going to come back, she recalled. Today Terrence is a business owner and family man in Quincy, FL. He is the epitome of you can do it, if you do it. But you have to want to do it, Ms. Kirkland said. Even after 11 years volunteering at Lake City Correctional, she said its still a special moment when the inmates get her message and grab a hold of it and start encouraging the other guys. Theyll start to approach her after services, asking to talk or if they can pray together. She receives letters from inmates elsewhere, too, saying they appreciate her correspondence because she makes them feel like family. That just warms your heart, Ms. Kirkland said.

ursday, September 8, 2011 T B C P Page 9 KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES email@example.comJohn and Doneita Grimm, directors of the housing ministry at Raiford Road Church, are delighted in the fact that the program, which observes its first anniversary on September 23, has already exceeded her expectations. The housing ministry has been able to rise to needs we didnt anticipate in the begining, said Ms. Grimm. Raiford Roads temporary housing facilities are located on church property on SR 121 South of Macclenny and Ms. Grimm, a National Association of Nouthetic Counseling lives on site with her husband. The counseling views psychological problems as spiritual problems, which it teaches can be solved by devotion to Christ. The housing ministrys main purpose is to shelter and help displaced people, especially single women, to master and apply Biblical principles to their lives and move forward toward begram helps married couples and families as well. During the their stay, which can be up to three months, the church assists and supports them as they work toward becomsecuring their own housing. But others, not specifically the target of the ministrys initial mission, have been getting help as well. In the last year, the ministry has provided shelter for an extremely disadvantaged elderly couple living without electricity and healthcare, and a funeral service when one of them died. They were able to assist a homeless, unmarried couple in obtaining a marriage license, then perform their wedding ceremony. The couple then participated in the housing ministrys program while they got on their feet and worked toward securing jobs and housing. The ministry was even able to provide a few nights housing for some of the visiting members of the Life Action Revival team until their host families were available. Future Now, a high school ministry that visited Macclenny, also found shelter through the housing ministry when their local accommodations came up short. For people participating in the housing ministrys program, there have been triumphs such as the single mother who earned her GED while a resident, as well as a few less fortunate outcomes. without its challenges, said Ms. Grimm. Sometimes people need the help but arent willing to follow the guidelines once they get here so they move on, which is regretful. But no one would choose to work in the church if it was always easy and were learning as we go. Id say the experience has matured us. The success of the program for those who embrace it is that it empowers people to re-enter life much better equipped to be selfSome only need a couple of weeks to become independent. Others need the full three months. According to Ms. Grimm, most people dont stay the full period, but so far seven women have worked through the entire program. the full spiritual counseling program and actually graduate from it, she said. One women left here and immediately entered a similar program in St. Augustine that lasts a full year. She became determined to change her life completely with the church and Gods help. We are so pleased to have been a part of that. Ms. Grimm is also excited about the future prospects of the housing ministry. Id like to see our counseling services expand and grow even bigger to serve the community, she said. And by the new year, a third housing facility for families should be complete. For Ms. Grimm, a touching outcome of the program is the number of women helped by the housing ministry who have gotten back on their feet and by their own choice began attending Sunday service at Raiford Road, some even bringing relatives. They were able, through the Christian principles taught through the housing ministry, to restore those damaged relationships, she said. By far the biggest reward for the counselor is seeing people benefit from the program and leave fully equipped to move forward in life.

I have to share it with you. There is a God who loves us. He created this whole world for us. He gives us families, husbands, wives, children all to make us happy. Homes, jobs, cars, all just for us. What do we have to do? Just believe! Believe He is who He says He is, believe He will do what He says He will, and love His son. He sent His son to die for us. Thats what Jesus did. He opened a way for us to have a relationship with God, His Father and ours. The Bible is instructions. He gave it to us so He could give us his instructions to live this life He has given us, so we dont hurt ourselves. B-IB-L-E, Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. The Bible is His way of talking to us; prayer is our way of talking to Him. He wants a relationship with you just like anyone else who loves you. You see God created this world just to have a relationship with us, all the way through eternity. This life we are now living is a dress rehearsal for eternity. He is seeing who will follow His rules, which will do it His way. He doesnt want robots or yes-men and women. Thats why we have brains and hearts. He wants people who love Him for Him. If you dont accept him now and His ways in this life you dont get a second chance in the next life. Hell is real. Think about it. There is a war going on between good and evil. If good has an afterlife, I would say evil does too. Two kings only one has won, God! Satan is just deceiving you if you think otherwise. Even he knows he has lost. Think about this, what is written here. You have too much proof not to believe. You dont lose anything, you gain so much more. Its not for the here and now its for eternity. Forever and ever. Its not even about what we think its about what we believe. Do you believe in Eternity, or do you believe this is all there is? God is real, Jesus is real, and the Holy Bible is true. Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life, forever and always.

We are available online at www.bakercountypress.comT B C PPage10SEPTEMBER 8, 2011 BOB GERARD | SPORTS The Florida Times-Union recently called the Baker High Wildcats 2011 football schedule the toughest in the area and with good reason. The Wildcats handled the #5 team in Georgia, the Westminster Wildcats, handily on Saturday with a 34-6 drubbing in Carrollton, Georgia. It is out of the frying pan into as they host the Trinity Conquerors. The defending state champions come to town after stewing all year long about last years 34The Conquerors lost only two games on their way to the state title. One was BCHS and the other the powerful Madison Cowboys. But the loss to the Cowboys was in Madison, not on their own turf. They would like nothing better than to hand the Wildcats the same defeat they suffered. The Conquerors are tough, but without two of their catalysts from last years state title run. Andre Buie, who put the game on his back last year and almost brought the Conquerors back, is at West Virginia where he was immediately bumped to back. Ahmed Christian, who also gave the Cats some worries, is a defensive back for South Carolina. But when youre talking about Trinity Christian it is more of a reloading rather than a rebuilding situation. The Conquerors started the season with a cakewalk over Barrington Christian. Quarterback Oshay Carter led Trinity to a 54-0 halftime lead. The defense took the ball away it looked as if it could get even worse for the visitors, who were worn out mentally and physically. They threw in the towel at halftime and forfeited the remainder of the game. Trinity lost 16 starters to cult to replace the likes of Buie and Christian. But Coach Verlon Dorminey is smart, experienced and crafty, and knows how to get the best out of his players. Carter had three pass completions against Barrington and each ended with a touchdown. He is not a natural passer, but more of runner who can throw, and he hit Isiah Ford twice for scores in the 13-12 win over Raines in the fall jamboree. With the runners he has at his back he doesnt have to rely on throwing the ball. runner Marvel Taylor, who had one score on Friday. Senior cat receiver Kendrick Singleton at Southern Miss next fall, is a strong, quick running back who can bounce to the outside or run off tackle. Junior Nick Washington is a Division 1 prospect who is very dangerous at running back and steady at safety. He will probably have the dubious honor of trying to guard Singleton. The question mark for the Conquerors is in front of Carter. Dorminey is replacing all of his starting offensive line, and that is a big task for any team. They will have to stand up to relentless pressure from the Wildcat front that harassed Westminster quarterback Danny Catan all afternoon on Saturday. Carter might be quicker than Catan but also is more one-dimensional. Defensively, a lot of the players go both ways. Briyan Eady heads up a good linebacking corps and 62 255 lb Selwin Carroll anchors the line. The plus factor for the Wildcats is that Trinity has played two times this season and has yet to play a full game. The varsity played a half against Raines and another against Barrington, so fatigue might be a factor by the fourth quarter, particularly if it is a hot, muggy night. It should be a heck of a game. Kickoff is at 7:30 pm at Memorial Stadium, and the halftime program includes a tribute to highscoring FCAT students and their teachers. ATTORNEYDavid P.

It was more about teambuilding than it was about the game, said Sulkowski. They got to think nothing but football for the better part of two or three than you can imagine. Of course the game didnt go too badly either as the Cats dominated their opponents. I was pleased with the effort and overall preparation. It gave us a chance to clean up some of the mistakes we had against Baldwin [the previous week], said Sulkowski. One of the obvious improvements was in the penalty situation. The Wildcats had 35 yards in penalties while their opponents had well over 100 yards. Sulkowski credits much of the teams improvement to what he calls the core group of veteran players. They know how we want things done around here, said Sulkowski. Its a different feel from last year. The Cats move from playing the #5 ranked team in Georgia to the #4 ranked team in Florida and defending state champs in Trinity Christian on Friday at 7:30 pm at Memorial Field. They know it will be a big game against a team that hasnt lost a game in a year. Sulkowski is trying to hold down the hype while at the same time promoting preparation. the night before the Westminster game. You have to keep ahead of it. Its like a chess game, he said. The Conquerors lost 16 starters from last years team, but Sulkowski knows they are still dangerous with speed and tradition. Theyre still Trinity, he said. Trinity is still an unknown commodity because the coach hasnt seen them play a full game. They played a half in the jamboree against Raines and a half against Barrington Christian, which forfeited after going down 54-0. But Sulkowski isnt sure if that will affect their conditioning. It all depends how hard they worked over the summer and in fall practices, he said. One of the variables going into Friday that concerns Sulkowski is the mental aspect of the game. Its easy to buy into the hype, but we tell them if you get too far up and get hit a few times its a long way to fall. So we try to manage the hype. He thinks his team has its really enjoyed their demeanor going into the games their approach. They get it and know that they have to work hard if theyre going to make it all the way to Orlando and the state championships, said the coach. But thats a long way to go for a team with the toughest schedule in the area. It all starts this BOB GERARD | SPORTS Carrollton, Georgia is a long way to go for a football game. It was six hours by charter bus, but Coach Ryan Sulkowski was convinced the excursion would help players bond as a team and test themselves against Georgias #5 ranked Westminster Wildcats. In really in doubt. The Wildcats from Baker County thoroughly outmanned the Wildcats from Westminster as they rolled to a 34-6 win, scoring three touchdowns in a threeminute span. Westminster had talent and determination, but it couldnt match up against a BCHS team that wore them down with strength, versatility and endurance. If there was any disappointment in the game it was that the Cats slipped up at the end and allowed Shelton Collier a 105-yard interception return for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. It should have been a shutout. BCHS was that dominating. The game was back and forth at the opening as both teams tried to feel out what the other had to offer. It was clear that Westminster had talent, particularly with hard-nosed running back Parker Tutthill, who made some good runs in the early going before BCHS adjusted and shut down his effectiveness. Quarterback Danny Catan struggled and was picked off by Jared Lee. The Wildcat defense troubled the Westminster signal caller all afternoon and he didnt have the time to set up and make his throws count. tunity to break the duck on the scoreboard in their initial drive. Kyle Alexander had a good punt return to the Westminster 38yard line. Kendrick Singleton ran to the 28 and a 10-yard late hit penalty moved the ball to the 18 of the Westminster Wildcats. The Cats drove all the way to the 4 but the drive stalled and a bad snap forced the usually reliable Jeremy Wannamaker miss what The Lee interception set up the first score. Thomas Sirk dropped into shotgun formation, but a second bad snap sent the ball sailing over his head. Sirk picked it up and found Malone Hadley, who had alertly come back toward his embattled quarterback. Hadley took the pass around the Westminster 20 and raced through the teeth of the defense into the endzone. Wannamakers PAT was good and the Wildcats were on the board. Tutthill gave Westminster a good return to the 36 and the Georgia Cats drove into BCHS territory. But Westminster was plagued by penalties all afternoon and the drive stalled. BCHS struck next with a clever 62-yard drive. Singleton and Sirk switched places, with Singleton behind center and Sirk out at wideout. It worked like a charm as Singleton converted a pair of running plays down to the Westminster 33-yard line. The drive seemed to stall but Sulkowski had the team go for it on fourth down and a quick screen to Singleton broke to the 16-yard line. Three plays and a face mask penalty later, Sirk ran it in from two yards out. The Wildcats quickly scored again when Cameron Hicks turned over the kickoff return after Dalton Dyal delivered a jarring hit at the Westminster 33. Sirk was pressured but felt it coming and stepped up into the pocket and hit Singleton over the middle and the senior wideout ran it in for another score. The Cats shut the Georgians down in three plays, the capper coming on a CC Jefferson sack, and when BCHS got the punt back Alexander ran it into Westminster territory at the 40-yard line. Sirk ran to the 32 and a personal foul put the ball 10 yards closer. Sirk hit Singleton and a facemask penalty put the ball at the 4-yard line. From there Sirk ran it in for a 28-0 lead. In the space of about three minutes the game had gone from scoreless to out of the Georgians hands at halftime. that saw the Wildcats dominating the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Sirk had lots of protection and picked apart the Westminster Wildcats with pinpoint passes. Equally as impressive as his accuracy was the ability by Kendrick Singleton and Malone Hadley to run with the ball after the reception. Defensively, the Wildcats harassed Westminster quarterback Catan with rushes from Jefferson, Rickie Tharpe, Hunter Sullivan, Lee and Roland Jefferson. They shut down Tutthill and Cameron Poje and the Georgians really never threatened after the The Westminster Wildcats the half and drove to the BCHS 6-yard line. The drive stalled when they went for it on fourth down. Alexander had a great stop on the running back at the 4-yard line. BCHS then drove 96 yards ing the onslaught with a great 45-yard pass to Singleton up the middle despite a Westminster blitz. Singleton caught the pass over his left shoulder and ran it in for the score. The Georgians scored late in the half but it was too little, too late. Sirk was 16-22 passing for 289 yards and a trio of touchdowns. Singleton had nine catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns and Hadley had three catches for 95 yards and a score. Jared Lee led the defense with 11 tackles and an interception. Jefferson had a pair of sacks and 6 hurries. Alexander had 5 tackles and Falon Lee four tackles.
