In two of the arrests, the offenders were also charged with driving on suspended licenses. All of them were in the Macclenny area. Just after midnight, Deputy Daryl Mobley was called to the intersection of Lowder St. and Miltondale to check out a 1998 Chevrolet pickup parked in the southbound lane of Lowder with its engine running and lights out. Stephen Bledsoe Jr., 35, of Macclenny was passed out at the wheel and admitted only to smoking a few marijuana cigabriety testing and was charged with DUI, refusal to submit to a blood and urine test, and having a suspended license. About two hours later, Deputy Mobley arrested Derrickal Major, 26, of Macclenny after observing him driving a 2002 Saturn erratically on US 90 near MLK Dr. He also ran a stop sign at the intersection. He failed sobriety testing in the parking lot of CVS and his blood alcohol level measured .200 at county jail, more than twice the legal limit. responded to another suspicious vehicle call, this one off James Barton Lane northwest of Macclenny. There he found a 2006 Chevrolet pickup stopped with its engine running and evidence on dewy grass that it had been steering in and out of ditches. Driver Claud Armstrong, 32, of Glen St. Mary was passed out at the wheel. He later failed sobriety testing and told Deputy Mobley he thought he was in Jacksonville. He refused to take a breathalyzer test at counfor a drunk driving charge. Late on September 25, Deputy Mobley arrested Jared Fama, 20, of Glen for drunk driving after following his 1996 Chevrolet eastbound on US 90 in Macclenny and observing it veering out of the travel lane in two directions. Mr. Fama, after failing field testing, refused to take MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF Families camping out together on the St. Marys River, with mom and dad lounging on lawn chairs in front of the tent keeping an eye on steaks cooking on the grill while their children play along the sandy shore. Thats the wholesome image. Rowdy drunks dancing be side a campfire late at night with loud music blaring from speakers near a cooler filled with ice and beer. Thats the troublesome scenario. The two pictures will be brought to mind on October 15 when the Baker County Commission meets to consider a request to rezone nearly seven acres of private property for recreational use, including overnight camping, along the river adjacent to the county boat ramp off Steel Bridge Road. The last time county commissioners voted on the same erty, which lies just west of the St. Marys Cove subdivision, the proposal was shot down after numerous objections were raised by nearby homeowners who said they didnt want their peace and quiet disturbed. mission meeting, Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston said. He expects another jampacked meeting this time, following a recommendation from the countys Land Planning Agency after a public hearing on September 27 to approve Bryan Rhodens request to rezone two parcels totaling 6.85 acres and change the land use on his property from residential to Recreation Resource. The public hearing before the county commission will be gin at 6 pm. The LPA board almost didnt recommend any course of action. One vote to approve the rezoning, advanced by member Glen Patten, died for lack of a second, followed immediately by a motion offered by member Walter Duncan to deny the re-Preparations begin for the Baker County F air this weekA crew from Hildebrand Rides, Inc. of Lighthouse Point, FL erects one of the midway attractions at the fairgrounds in north Macclenny the afternoon of October 2 in preparation for the sneak peek opening October 4.

County will again hear bid for a private camp on riverS ee page 2 S ee page 3Deputy scores trio of DUIs in one nightJOEL ADDINGT ON N EWS EDIT OR email@example.comJeff Howard has always loved remote-controlled toys. But at 49, the civil service worker and former Navy submariner has found only one thats still exciting. airplanes at the Shadetree Miniature Aircraft Associations air show north of Glen St. Mary last weekend. Ive had every high-dollar remote motor-controlled thing that has ever existed ... , Mr. Howard explained the morning of September 28. But this is the only thing because if it goes up, it has to come down thats kept my interest and didnt get boring. The association hosted the three-day event at the privately-owned Pennsylvania, some arriving with RVs and campers. Billed as the International Miniature Aircraft Associations District V Fly-in and Bud McMillan Memorial, the show featured motorized and remote-controlled replicas of real aircraft, some decked-out with One of Mr. Howards planes, a Citabria, which he pointed out was airbatic spelled backwards, has a 103-inch wing span and 35 cubic centimeter engine. It was adorned with multi-colored lights along the under-carriage that serve as landing lights. The plane was also equipped with a small hatch on the underbelly At night, they look like stars falling down, said Mr. Howard of St. Marys, GA. The plane itself was cheap and not particularly well-functioning so, he said, I turned it into a fun plane. More expensive was another of Mr. Howards aircraft, valued at $1500 and under the control of another pilot when it crashed the pre vious day due to a malfunction, not pilot error, he said. The planes guts, worth about $700, were salvaged, however. Rico and Virgin Islands, also served as a tribute to the late Bud McMillan, a Shadetree Miniature Aircraft Association member who died several years ago. S ee page 2

Then, Chairman Philip Zamarron asked someone to second either of the motions so that the advisory board could send a recommendation to the county commission. Joseph DeFee seconded the motion to approve the measure, which was affirmed 3-1, with only Mr. Duncan voting against it. The countys Development Review Committee reviewed the application on August 30 and unanimously recommended approval. The Baker County Planning and Zoning Department also recommended approval before the LPA last week and Mr. Preston told the board that there was really no reason to deny the request other Two nearby homeowners said they had nothing personal against the applicant and didnt want to deny his private property rights, but that they did not want camping along the riverfront because of the potential for noise and people drinking alcohol at all hours of the day and night. I live up river (from Mr. Rhodens property) and Ive been there 55 years, said Wendell Wilkerson. I stay there for my peace. David Eisenhower, a retired on Steel Bridge Road not far from the proposed recreational site, said the neighborhood used to have nothing but trouble all night down there with speeding motorists and people drinking in the posted No Camping signs. Currently, according to a staff report presented by Mr. Preston, the land is used for day camping as a (natural) resource-based recreation area and is equipped with a well and septic tank. Theres also a mobile home on the property and a portable shed used to dispense snacks and sodas. If approved, Mr. Preston said, the property would be restricted to no more than 10 overnight camping spaces for tents and or camper trailers. Also, approval of the rezoning county seeking a court order, essentially an injunction, prohibit ing recreational camping on the property. The lawsuit stemmed from a code enforcement case in which county officials claimed camping was being permitted on the residential property in violation of the zoning code. Mr. Rhoden, who has owned the property since 1987, contends he has never allowed camping there. When Mr. Preston mentioned the lawsuit in connection with alleged camping activities on the property, Mr. Rhoden said: Do you have any proof? Nonetheless, Mr. Rhoden said he is seeking the highest and best use of his land, which he said should be recreation as a decent place for families to camp and go swimming. Noting that the entire area is recorded history this summer and destroyed numerous homes, Mr. Rhoden said if his property is rezoned it would bring in some money from out of the county and pack up and get out of here. Whatever ultimately is decided, Mr. Zamarron said the proposal needs to move forward. I think everybody is ready to act in a constructive way, cooperatively, if its approved, he said. In other business, the LPA board: ters in the Glen Anglican Church waiving a requirement for a paved parking lot on a 2.07 acre site on the west side of County Road 125 just south of Interstate 10. Church leaders said plans are well under way to have a 3,600 square foot modular building placed on the site to serve as the groups new house of worship. The entranceway would be a gravel road leading to two paved handicapped parking spaces, but the rest of the parking area likely would remain unpaved for quite some time. Eventually, as the church grows and needs additional space paved parking spaces would be required. The zoning code requires one parking space for ev ery three seats in the church, which church leaders said presently numbers about 20 members. Dan Milner, the churchs senior warden, said requiring a paved parking lot would impose congregation. enough money together to buy the building, Mr. Milner said. It would take more time to raise money for paving. Debra Milner, church treasurer, said that, hopefully, services will begin in the new sanctuary by Thanksgiving, or before Christmas at the latest. next LPA meeting on October 25 to consider an appeal of a determination by the planning director that a 30.4-acre parcel off John Williams Road is not eligible for expansion or improvement because of violation of subdivision regulation and for lack of direct access to a road that meets minimum requirements. The property lies at the end of a private drive named Wilburns Way south of John Williams Road. There currently are two residences on the property and a third residence is proposed. Mr. Preston recommended the LPA hear the appeal because the subject property is more than large enough to accommodate the zoning density requirements and because the subdivision regulations were not violated by the present owner.

It is evident that he doesnt have children. If he does, he does not respect their feelings. It is none of your business or anyone elses in Baker County that Ty Canaday lost his RN license. He was never arrested and doesnt even live in Bak er County, but if he did it still would not be your business to tell his personal problems. Its is evident that you do not respect families that have personal problems. All you want to do is sell newspapers, regardless of who you hurt. Ty Canaday has a young child in the Baker County schools and an adult child still living in Baker County. Now, because of your aim to hurt and destroy reputations, they will be judged because of the article you wrote about their dad. It is not their fault that their dad has personal problems, but you have taken it upon yourself to see that the children will be looked at for the rest of their lives as having a father with issues. You should have thought I know it is your job to post news and sell newspapers, but that article is not news worthy; its just gossip. You have lowered yourself and to the likes of tabloid magazines. You should be ashamed instead of proud of what you did. Just because the Florida De partment of Health releases the names of those whose licenses have been revoked does not make it your business to humiliate these people and their families. I would say God help you, but I really dont think He will. You are beyond help if you think Ty Canadays children will not be branded for the rest of their lives because of the ar ticle you wrote. Mr. McGauley, you should be ashamed for allowing the article to be published. Its very obvious by allowing this, you have no respect for children and families.Carolyn Canaday Dear Editor:After reading the article in last week concerning Baker County Animal Control, I would like to share my expe rience. For nearly a decade I have had frequent interaction with Georgia Monfort and other animal control personnel, most recently Mr. Self. I regularly foster puppies for them and call for advice when I have unexpected guests that need to be trapped and removed from my property. They have always been caring and kind. In fact, animals are shown for adoption at county events, including the upcoming Baker County Fair. Anyone who speaks negatively about animal control does not have a good understanding of what goes on there. This agency does amazing things with what they have to work with. Does this mean animals have to be euthanized? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. The majority of these animals are the result of irresponsible pet owners who think they are not accountable for over breeding and subsequently abandoning unwanted animals. There is a huge misconception by many in the county that spaying The article mentioned that Ms. Monfort does not allow people who have volunteered to help with the animals or to foster animals. That time consuming. Any animal with teeth or claws is capable of biting or scratching someone. It would only be a matter of time before the county found itself in a lawsuit if she randomly handed out animals to anyone who asked. some solutions, like holding pet owners accountable. If their animal is picked up, they should have to pay for the animal to be spayed or neutered. Im sure there are many ideas to help the situation. Ms. Monfort is doing a wonderful job and it is a shame more people do not know it. She does not deserve the criticism she has received in the past for doing her job.Louise Elliott Dear Editor:Thanks to everyone who took a stand against not bringing sand mining to Baker County. One thing of great importance to me that was left out of any conversation or discussion that I heard by anyone was how many gallons (approximately) of water would these two projects draw from the aquifer in the next 20 years? I offer the following calculation compiled by a friend. Old Castle: 2 million gallons per day x 365 days = 730 million galgallons per day x 365 days = 3.65 million gallons per year x 15 years = 547.5 million gallons) = 4.1475 billion gallons. E.R. Jahna: 2.16 MGD x 365 = 788.4 million gallons per year x 5 985.5 million gallons) = 4.9275 billion gallons. 9.075 billion gallons of water over 20 years for both projects. Hope this helps settle the issue with those concerned.Herb Rodgers Praise, not barbs for animal control I have a time machine. I can go back in time 35 years as if I never left. Its called a reunion. I actually had a pair of reunions to choose from last weekend. I could go to my high school class reunion in Lake City or to Tampa for the yearly reunion of all my FSU college buddies. It wasnt much of a choice. If I went to my CHS class reunion it might be fun. Maybe. They certainly had put a lot of work in on it to make it nice and fun. Theres only one problem. I re member high school all too viv idly. It wasnt fun. High school can be very difpha dog in high school. I was a tall, skinny, funny, geeky kid. I didnt really blossom until I went to college and got a little confidence around guys who liked me or at least put up with me. I knew the moment I stepped back in time at CHS I was going to become that un comfortable, geeky 17-year-old kid again. It was inevitable. Reunions do that to you. So I went to Tampa. They say you cant go back again. Well, sometimes you can. I unzipped that jacket of 35 years and I was back at FSU as if I had never left. So too did my college buddies and we all felt completely at home. I hadnt been to one of these minutes after being there was metaphorically kicking myself for that. I was having a great time. See, heres the problem with me. Im not anti-social, just not real social. The issue is getting me to go someplace. Once Im there, I usually have my heels in and resist the going. Im not a hundred percent sure why I went this year. I guess it was the concerted effort from many of my friends who called me, sent e-mails and Facebook messages and basically blew me out of my complacency. I am so pleased that they made the effort. I laughed and laughed at our college stories. I didnt live in a dorm or a fraternity. I lived in a scholarship house on the fringe of the campus with 18 other guys. You had to maintain a 3.0 average to stay in the house. What that meant was that all the crazy stuff that happens at college was being filtered through guys who would later go on to be doctors and college professors. I dont know where another I was always knee deep in it. One of the ringleaders was nicknamed The Professor because he vaguely resembled the guy on Gilligans Island. We all had nicknames. In fact, I dont remember some of the guys real names. My nickname was Dr. G after Julius Dr. J Irving because I could hit a 20-foot jump shot with regularity on the backyard basketball court. The Professor later on actually became one and has 99 patents to his name for GE. At our scholarship house, his was a water balloon launcher that tossed one over 300 yards. I will neither confirm nor deny that we water ballooned the FSU Homecoming parade from a rooftop two blocks away. One guy, who later would become a gastroenterologist, was a huge prankster. His nick name was The Mystery Dancer after a character on the Gong Show. He was completely ordinary until he donned a Mickey Mouse mask and jumpsuit. Then he was different person. He crashed events at the university. Some stodgy lecture or performance would be going on when the strains of Elton Johns Crocodile Rock would start blaring from a boom box and The Mystery Dancer would come on stage, dance wildly for a couple of minutes and then disappear. Then he was back to being ordinary for another week or so. Some might call that schizophrenia to us he was just The Mystery Dancer. One of my roommates was from Hong Kong. He barely spoke English, ran up a $40,000 bill at the university and skipped the country. Once, as a prank, somebody locked him in the shower room. After a few minutes of trying to get out, we heard a yell and he kicked the door off the frame. We werent aware he was a black belt in karate. After that, we didnt mess with him. We later discovered that he is now a bigwig in the Red Chinese government. I hope a Chinese hit squad isnt looking for me. My next roommate was from Pakistan. Thats right, I was basically the United Nations. Unlike the Chinese guy, he took to America and never left. In fact, he was one of the most patriotic Americans I ever met, even though he was Pakistani. You Americans dont know how great it is here, he used to tell me. Try living someplace else. For 12 hours last weekend we laughed, told stories, sang songs and basically shed the cares of being middle aged with expanding bellies, families, bills and mortgages. We were 20-year-olds again living the college dream. Our only ties to reality were the wives shaking their heads, smiling wry smiles and rolling their eyes from time to time at the goofy stuff we did. Ironically, I tell some of these same stories to my own children and to my college speech class and they think these guys are just the coolest. My son Dylan, who graduated a little over a year ago from UF, laments the fact that he doesnt have those kind of stories from his college life. I guess I just got lucky. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD Correction notedThe page one article in last weeks misinterpreted one of the charges filed by the Florida Highway Patrol against Randall Morrow for the traffic death of Virginia Kirk of Macclenny last March. The title of the vehicular homicide statute, one of the charges against Mr. Morrow, indicates it involves the death of a person or an unborn fetus. The article erred in that it in ferred that Ms. Kirk was pregnant at the time she was killed in a broadside collision in Glen St. Mary. Mr. Morrow is from Mississippi. The state attorneys office is expected to file formal charges and issue an arrest warrant in the near future.Oh, those wacky college days...MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF Macclennys new 2012-13 municipal budget, which became effective on October 1 afgive property owners a slight tax break due to declining property values and a continuation of the same tax millage rate as last year. Residents paid 3.6000 mills in 2011-12, which is the equivalent of $3.60 for every $1,000 of assessed property valuation. But because property values have de clined, the same rate will not produce the same amount of revenue as last year. City officials said they will less tax revenue. The millage rate of 3.6000 is less than the rolled-back rate of 3.7033 mills by 2.79 percent, Mayor Gary Dopson said at the outset of the commission meeting on the evening of September 25. The rolled-back rate is the rate that would be necessary to produce the same amount of reve nue that was generated by property taxes last year, which totaled $744,618 compared to the anticipated $724,058 this year. The citys $4,414,605 million operating budget for the new year is partially funded by $175,000 in unused funds carried over from last years budget and $418,000 in reserve funds. City Manager Gerald Dopson said the city still has about $700,000 in its rainy-day reserve fund. However, he said the day may not be far off when government services have to be cut back as the result of unabated revenue shortages. And that day could come sooner, rather than later, the city manager said, if voters approve proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution that would pass along additional tax cuts to property owners at the expense of city and county budgets throughout the state. Mr. Dopson urged voters to carefully read the amendments cations before casting their vote on the measures, particularly Amendment No. 4, which he said could have overwhelming con sequences. Amendment No. 4 would extend tax breaks to property own It also would prevent the assessed value of homesteaded and certain non-homesteaded properties from increasing in any year when the market value of the property decreases, and would cut in half the taxable rate on non-home stead property, such as second homes and residential rental properties. If Amendment No. 4 passes, total tax revenue losses to local governments over a three-year period have been estimated at roughly $1 billion statewide. Large cities, such as Jacksonville, would lose millions of dollars in revenue if the amendments pass, the city manager said. But to a city like Macclenny, the loss of even $10,000 or $12,000 would be a heavy blow. But he said he knows it wont be easy to convince folks to vote against a tax-cutting amendment. Its going to be hard for them not to vote for it, he said. His brother, Mayor Gary Dopson, agreed. You almost never see an amendment (proposal) fail, the mayor said. The board meeting, which ing, only lasted about 10 minutes because the budget had already been tentatively approved in a previous meeting. Although the budget was tight and left little room for extras, City Manager Dopson said he was happy to report that the citys continued effort to beautify its immediate downtown district will continue. He said $30,000 has been allocated to buy new retro-street lights reminiscent of those in the early 20th century. Four of the structures already have been erected along the west side of 5th building and the additional money will buy about 33 new lights to be placed along the east side of 5th Street and along 4th Street as well. The city manager said hes also waiting for permits from the Florida Department of Transportation to install street lights that were purchased last year for placement along 6th Street. The entire municipal budget totals $8,156,311, including the $4.3 million general fund and $2.8 million utility fund. For the third year in a row city employees will not receive a pay raise and most city departments will see little to no increase in funding. The exceptions are the solid waste department, which jumped from $609,696 to $1,003,503 and the recreation department, whose budget was increased from $98,080 to $131,614. The city has budgeted an additional $437,500 for new machinery and equipment in the solid waste department, including $300,000 for a new garbage truck equipped with a mechanical arm that picks up curbside containers without the need for a second person on the truck. If the city privatizes residential and commercial garbage pickup service, however, the $300,000 may be used for other three vendors are currently be ing evaluated, with no increase in garbage collection fees anticipated though the pickup schedule would change from twice weekly to once a week. Work began this week to install a temporary bridge on County Road during Tropical Storm Debby in late June. bridge can be constructed next summer. The bridge, known locally as the Greens Creek Bridge, is located 2.6 miles south of Interstate 10 south of Sanderson, and is over the South Prong of the St. Marys River. The Florida Department of Transportation is overseeing the temporary bridge installation and hired Hal Jones Contractor Inc. of Jacksonville to complete the job within three months. The $861,000 bridge is being paid for with federal and state funding. Once the 200-foot-long metal bridge is installed, the speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph. The new concrete bridge is expected to be built beginning in the summer of 2013.M ACCLENNY CITY C OMMISSIONFinal vote on $8.1M budget Photo Prints are Great Gifts (and so are mousepads, poster prints, and mugs)See many of the professional photos from our paper and thrill someone special by ordering a print or a photo gift of you favorite.

The states August jobs report shows that the unemployment rate here dropped 2.5 percent from August, 2011 and .04 percent from July of this year. Still, the falling jobless rate has been the result of meager job growth combined with a shrinking workforce. Last month the local labor force numbered 12,428 people compared to 12,505 in July and 12,544 in August, 2011. Meanwhile, the number of people with jobs fell by 20 workers between July and August, from 11,513 to 11,493, but thats more people employed than in August, 2011 when the jobless rate stood at 10 percent. The number of unemployed workers still seeking jobs fell, however, by 57 to 935 between July and August, leading to the 7.5 percent jobless rate for August. sent estimates from federal labor market surveys and those for August are preliminary estimates that may be revised when the next monthly jobs report is released by the state on October 19. Baker Countys unemploy ment rate hit its highest point, 11.2 percent, in January, 2010. Three years prior in January, 2007, the rate stood at 3 percent. Nationally, the jobless rate fell to 8.2 percent in August, and statewide it slid to 9 percent. The latest unemployment numbers show a lower rate here than in many surrounding counties, including Clay (7.7), Columbia (8.2), Duval (9.4), Nassau (7.7) and Putnam (11.2). St. Johns and Union counties were both below Baker Countys rate at 6.7 and 7.3 percent, respectively. Over the last year, the most job growth has come in the reness services; and education and health services sectors, according to the August jobs report from WorkSource Region 8, which includes Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties.

These are not only difficult times, but critical to the future of our children and grandchildren. Times like this require leaders whose core values are right and just, solid and firm. Men who will act on their convictions. This election both nationally and locally may very well be the one that determines what kind of America we live in for a long time. One of our long standing elected officials in an article in this paper indicated that we should steer clear of being identified with one particular party and not to work solely for a political party, but to exercise good judgement for all people. I agree. However, the question beneath is what does a man stand for and what kind of platform does he support. Who we align ourselves with and what we call ourselves does matter.Please let me tell you what my core values are:1. I believe in God, family, and country in that order. As our founding fathers did, one man and one woman, and the preciousness of life are core principals to be preserved in our community. We must have leaders who will fight for them. 2. I am a fiscal conservative coupled with the components of small government, less taxes, and less spending. 3. I believe government is responsible for certain basic services to a community. Unfortunately, they can not be all that everyone would like them to be. Civic duty and personal responsibility are what built our nation and at some point with our national debt exceeding $16 trillion dollars we must begin to come to an agreement on just how much government can do. Funds we have been accustomed to are drying up. We must together decide what is the right balance for our county. I pledge to help our board make every tax dollar spent open and transparent to the public. 4. In my business I am living the American dream. I want to create an environment where anyone willing to work and apply themselves can prosper, but it requires leaders who can balance and manage complex issues so that the people are served and the business community thrives. I pledge to spend the time necessary to give the people honest and fair representation in these matters. 5. Freedom requires work and I pledge to be one you can depend on to not just be present, but to ac tively be engaged in our government. I may be wrong at times, but there is the possibility I will be right too. I will apologize when I am wrong and debate the subject vigorously when I am right. I will not alter my position because of influence. I will do what I feel is right by the people. In the coming weeks you will hear more about me, both from my articles, but also from other ads. Please weigh what you see and hear and compare it to what you know in your heart we need. We need leaders. I will be one for you the people.On November 6 please vote Eddie Davis for County Commissionerand together we will make a difference in our community.Paid by Eddie Davis Jr, Republican, for County Commission District 5.

But for the last few decades, the retired Navy mechanic has been especially interested in giving new life to the most senior of automobiles. The Ford Model T. I grew up with Model As and Mod that, the 76-year-0ld north Macclenny resident said the afternoon of September 17 while taking a break from the 1913 two-door Model T he was commissioned to restore two years ago. The antique vehicles owner hasnt been in a rush, so Mr. Cannon says hes been piddling with other restoration projects, too. But last month, the 3, as he calls it, with a four-cylinder, 200 cubic inch, 20 horsepower engine and 21-inch wood spoke wheels, was nearly The Model T arrived at his Eloise Street residence in pieces. It was little more than a bench seat, axles and other miscellaneous parts on a trailer bed. In his scrapbook of restored cars, including before and after pictures, is a photo of Mr. Cannons wife and adopted son with those hunks of metal, pulled from the attic of a Jacksonville man. They were looking at me like, you have lost your mind, remembers Mr. Cannon, a native of Bryan, Texas, who moved to Baker County in 1976 after re tiring from the military and taking a position at Lake City Community College, now Florida Gateway College, teaching golf course maintenance. Mr. Cannon admits his hobby is not for everybody. Its expensive, challeng ing and time-consuming. step in restoring a car designed more than a century ago to its former glory, he see a psychiatrist. For starters, Mr. Cannon tends to get very attached to his work. I have almost an intimate relationship with them. When I get into them, theyre part of me, he said. The Model T he was busying putting owned by a retired submarine sailor named H.D. Hively. His grandfather, Mr. Cannon explained, was the original owner of the Model T. He said the grandfather sold it and then got it back from the buyer several months later, perhaps on a trade in. The family drove the automobile for a number of years before placing it in storage, where it remained until 2010. It was a rolling car, but it was all beaten, battered and broken, said Mr. Cannon. We built everything on it from the front end to the rear end the engine, the transmission, the body, the interior. It was missing some parts and we went out and found the parts we needed. Helping Mr. Cannon with the project was a fellow antique car enthusiast from Middleburg, Robert Burghart. They said reconstructing such old cars to their ing art that few people have the knowhow to pursue. And this man right here happens to be darn good at it, said Mr. Burghart. Not just anybody can come in and do stuff like this. And thats part of what Mr. Cannon enjoys about restoration work: the challenge. Its a challenge to take it apart, and to say I know where it all goes, exactly where it goes, exactly what it does. I know where it fits. I know the size wrench it takes to take it off and put it on ... Its a hobby. It is fun. Its absolutely fun, he said. There are younger generations of an tique car collectors, many enamored by muscle cars and hot rods and speed. But those who love resurrecting Model Ts are a different breed, the gentlemen said, and one dedicated to preserving history as it was. The people who are my age, once were gone, no one will be interested in this, Mr. Cannon said. They all want to turn them into street cars ... They dont even know what makes them run. Mr. Cannon, despite his knack for getting more power out of antique engines, enjoys the nostalgia that comes from a car that you must crank to start. One with a top speed of 45 mph and brakes that are only effective up to 15 mph. You have to drive defensive ly, he says. The Model T doesnt even need gasoline to run. It can drive with alcohol, used motor oil, kerosene or a Its taking something thats literally dead and making it come alive again, for what it is, and to appreciate the way things were when life was simple, Mr. Cannon said. But such nostalgia is fed by authen ticity, which is not a cheap commodity duced car. Mr. Cannon called the restoration of such vehicles cost prohibitive. The return on investment is nil, he says, because few people are willing to purchase an antique car for more than it cost to restore it. Anybody who wants one, either has one or is dead, Mr. Cannon said. Still, even after the monetary investment, the meticulous nature of the work or the time spent traveling to swap meets in cities across the country hunting reworth it, he said. For Mr. Cannon, the real payoff comes when showing the end result to others letting them sit inside the car or taking them for rides around the block. When you do one, you never own it, Mr. Cannon said. The car belongs to everyone who ever walks up to it and transforms themselves into it ... Its a reward you cant buy. voteLEONARD DAVISFOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 3Paid for by Leonard Davis, Republican, for County Commissioner District 3.As our population and the number of businesses increase we will have more traf c on our local road system. This increase will require more extensive planning on the part of county government. Long range planning including the study of existing and future traf c ows must be implemented now.

He can knock out a quick 6-7 miles at near NCAA pace during a lunch break. Hes done the Gate River Run in Jacksonville a 9.3 mile trek at both a race pace and a run pace. The difference? A race pace covers each mile in a blistering 5 minutes and 11 seconds. I still try to log about 70 miles a week, said the 27-year-old Yulee Mr. Leary was appointed last month to take over the helm of the 450 member Baker YMCA, and one of his goals is to boost that number to about 700. Hes coming here from two vibrant YMCAs in the JackYMCA in Riverside, where he most recently was an associate executive director. Id like to see a 20-30 percent increase in our membership. One of the ways you get that is to involve a lot more youth in programs like the soccer leagues, the pool and basketball. We have to grow here outside our four walls, said the new director, who has since joining the Y organization in college had a strong background in membership. worked for a brief time there before joining up at the Brooks center in 2008. The Baker Family Y board encouraged the metro management to breathe new life into the 11th year of its existence here.

ursday, October 4, 2012 T B C P Page 11 Page 10 T B C P ursday, October 4, 2012 JOEL ADDINGT ON N EWS EDIT OR email@example.comWhen Zachary Holder was having a hard time at Baker County High School, there was somebody there to refocus him on what mattered: his academics, his college scholarship and his future. Now 23 years old, working full-time at Florida Gateway College and attending classes there for an associates degree in graphic design, Mr. Holder is thankful for the Take Stock in Children program he enrolled in after the eighth grade. Not only because the program is funding his post-secondary education, but for the high school, graduating in 2007. who he referred to as Miss Ann, met with him monthly. He recalled talking with her about what was happening in their respective lives. She was an elderly woman, but very, very high-spirited, Mr. Holder said. Anytime I would feel out of control, she helped me grasp control. She did a lot to keep me on track my da-based mentoring and scholarship program administered here by Florida Gateway College for low-income, at-risk youth, according to the colleges website. Its been a blessing for me. Id probably be Mr. Holder, formerly of Macclenny. In return for keeping their grades up, having good attendance and staying out of trouble, students in the program receive tuition-free classes at Florida Gateway College, funded by private donations that are matched by the state. The program is currently seeking new mentors in Baker County to meet with students for 30 minutes each week at BCHS. The schools principal Tom Hill has also launched a new initiative there to encourage more adults in the community to volunteer at the Glen St. Mary campus. What Mr. Hill calls the Dream Team consists of community members who spend time there whether weekly, bi-monthly or monthly and attempt to make a difference in childrens lives, states a brochure the principals been distributing of late, including at a town hall meeting on September 25. Standing before about two dozen persons in the BCHS auditorium that evening, Mr. Hill made an impassioned plea to promote interest in the Dream Team. Last year, he said, more than 2300 days of school were lost to detention and 323 students were suspended from school. Plus, roughly a third of all freshman 3 in 10 never graduate. But whos to blame? Teachers, parents, students? Honestly, its all our faults ... , said Mr. Hill. The thing I hate most is that those three out of 10, you will spend money on them, because they will need help. They will not be prepared for the world theyre going out into. Mr. Hill described how he often sees students who are lost, or ready to drop out, or suffering from abuse at home. We live in a community that has church after church after church, on every single corner, and so many young people that come into you can imagine, he said. If you can think of the worst thing that youve seen in a movie, you know that abuse that you always see in the bad movies you dont let your children watch. We have kids experiencing that abuse; going home to that tonight. Then there are other students, who come from homes with hard-working, supportive parents; yet they make poor lifestyle choices and seek out destructive behavior. I need your help, Mr. Hill said, because people and if you have that same type of heart, to see kids make appropriate choices, and when kids make inappropriate choices, being there for them to intervene and be that assistance they need, then I want you here. I dont want you here preaching the gospel. You cant do that. But they will know your heart by the way you interact with them. paperwork before joining the Dream Team. Those forms are available at the high school or by calling Mr. Hill or vice principal Fay Sinclair at 259-6286.

The shorter days and cooler nights of winter fruit is ready for harvest about a The plants will withstand our freezing temperatures, but protecting early blossoms can produce fruit as early as January. While strawberries are traditionally planted in rows, there are many other space-saving ways to grow them, including hanging baskets, containers, grow boxes, and strawberry buckets or barrels. Growing strawberries in these alternative systems also makes it convenient when cold weather arrives since they can easily be moved to a warmer location to fruit. Festival is one of three varieties recommended for home gardens in Florida, producing able for eating fresh, canning or freezing. Each plant is capable of producing 1-2 pints of fruit over the season. If you want to grow your own strawberries this year, the Bak er County master gardeners are selling Festival plants in bundles of 10 for $5 or bundles of 50 for $20 to raise money for educational program supplies and youth gardening programs. All purchases come with planting and growing instructions. You can pre-order your plants now, but plan to join us for the strawberry sale and demo Day on Friday, October 19 from 9 am to noon, in the Ag Center parking lot in Macclenny.

The Wildcats battled back in the second half to defeat Palatka 28-23. It was a game that could have gone either way, but the Cats maintained their poise and the offensive line wore down the Panther defensive front. Heres Coach Ryan Sulkowskis take on the game and the upcoming matchup with the Paxon Eagles. : Corey Lawler had another big night, this time through the air. What were we, or Palatka, doing that allowed : This offense is designed to take what the defense gives us. In the Palatka game we felt we could run the ball effectively and we did, but we also knew there would be some passing lanes for Corey. Setting up the pass with the run is always the most effective way to open up receivers on the outside when the defense brings more guys closer to the line of scrimmage to stop the run. Corey Drew Rogers, Brandon Miller and Logan Fox and taking what the defense gave us in the secondary. : Logan Fox continues to improve as a clutch receiver. What are some of his strengths? : I think that Logan, along with through four games this season. Sometimes the game plan dictates that the receivers will not touch the ball as much and all of these guys have been patient in waiting for their number to be called. Fortunately they are stepping up when we do and I know that Logan and the other guys will continue to improve as this season continues. : Mike Boone had a good game against the Panthers both receiving and running. Do you see him continuing to have a larger role in the offense? : Mike plays our most called on position. It is a spot that was occupied by Kendrick Singleton for two years and we know that Kendrick holds numerous school records as a result. So yes, Mike will continue to get comfortable in that role and will be called on quite a bit over the course of the next six plus weeks. : Falon Lee also had a strong game. Is it a matter of who the opponent keys on, him or Corey, as to who will fea ture in the ground game? : Falon once again did a great job taking advantage of his opportunities, as did Corey. It really is a matter of who we are playing and what they give us up front [defensive alignment]. The overlooked item is why we are having success in the running game. Falon and Corey will be line [Jon Kinney, Eli Lee, Natavian Casen Noles, plus fullback CeCe Jefferson]. Those guys have been playing lights out and are starting to come to: Who were your defensive standouts against Palakta? : I thought that Eli Lee had a pretty impressive game, as did linebacker Rashood Hadley. I also thought Natavian all I was impressed with the way we played with the exception of a few missed tackles. We the football. We are getting that 80 percent of the time and will continue to improve. : You have Paxon coming up and Bolles after that. With the Eagles struggling will there be a worry about the team looking past Paxon to the Bulldogs? : We have harped on the fact that Bolles does not determine if we make our district games ... Paxon gets us ready for Parker, Parker gets us ready for Forrest, and Forrest gets us ready for Bishop Kenny. This team has done a good job so far on focusing on the task at hand. They know whats at stake each week. Our only goal this week is to be 2-0 in District 3-5A. : What do the Eagles bring to the table offensively and defensively? Paxon spreads the ball out offensively and really tries to focus on the run game with short intermediate passes around to stop the run and use some man [to man] coverages to accomplish that. Our game plan is in and we are hopeful to get it taught and prepare our kids to execute it on Friday night. 12 MONTHS $299.99FLPMTAPR$27.0021.40% 18 MONTHS $499.99 $599.99FLPMTAPR$32.0021.60%$38.0021.64% 21 MONTHS $799.99FLPMTAPR$45.0021.62% 24 MONTHS $999.99FLPMTAPR$50.0021.56%Baker Square Shopping CenterMACCLENNY | 259-5655 93 Still as pretty as can be!Happy Birthday!Love, Your Family Happy 70th Birthday, Mom!Love always, Danether, Celina, Felicia, Baby Girl Latoya HAPPY 18 TH BIRTHDAY, MEGAN Baby GirlLove, Nana & Papa BPHAN Love, Mom, Dad & Baby Sis Bennett reunionThe annual Bennett family reunion will be held on Sunday, October 14 at the North Prong Church.

BOB GERARD | SPOR TS The Wildcats faithful had barely taken their seats and bit into their hotdogs when the Palatka Panthers scored on a 58-yard run the second play of last weeks game. It could have turned into a very bad evening for the fans who traveled to Palatka the evening of September 28. But this was not the same team that was pummeled by the Tigers in Lake City. These Wildcats struck back and got a come-from-behind, 2823 victory over the Panthers. For the Panthers, it couldnt have been a better start. After beating Bradford County in the opening game of the season, they were winless and desperately wanted to get back on the winning track. They got the opportunity early as Jatwan Honor took the second snap of the game, broke into the clear and rambled 58 yards to pay dirt. The pointafter gave the hosts a 7-0 lead. It was a shock to the system of the Wildcats. But because it happened so early in the game, the visitors had time to regroup. Instead of being rocked back on their heels, they dug in their heels and marched 80 yards on the next possession. Mike Boone, who had a great game running and Corey Lawler continued where he left off the previous week and dashed for 10 yards, moving the Cats into Palatka territory with a strike over the middle to Blayne Merchant. A pair of Lawler runs took the ball to the 20 and three plays later Falon Lee yards out. Lawler converted and BCHS took an 8-7 point lead. The kicking game has been a thorn in the side of the Cats all season and the opening kickoff was shanked so that it resembled an onside kick, giving the Panthers Smith soon found Jaquille Melton for a 33-yard touchdown pass to put the Pan thers back on top 14-8. Things continued to look bad for the Cats in the second quarter as Palatka took the ball down the BCHS narrowed the gap to three points on an 80-yard scoring march near the end of the half. It was the passing game that clicked for the Wildcats against Palatka. Lawler had the best game of his career throwing the ball, going 15 of 18 for 146 yards. He connected with Logan Fox, Brandon Miller and on 14 carries, ran it in from 13 yards out. The conversion was no good. The Panthers continued to have the run of play in the start of the second half. They marched 60 yards for a score despite what looked like a Cat fumble star of the Clay game, continued his hard hitting form and forced a fumble that the referee awarded to lineman Cedric McCoy in the end zone. The kick was no good and the Panthers held a 23-14 edge. All summer Coach Ryan Sulkowski preached and it began to pay dividends on a hot muggy night by the St. Johns River. The Wildcats began to control the line of scrimconnected with Fox on a pair of throws to the Palatto put the Cats within one point at 23-22. The defense stiffened and shut down an obviously tired Palatka offensive line and after a punt the Wildcats marched 70 yards for the score. Lee ran the ball into Panther territory and Lawler found Boon in the endzone from 29 yards out for the winning touchdown. The conversion was no good. Two big tackles from Griffin and Elijah Lee snuffed a Palatka drive to seal the game. The Cats had a big night running the ball with 237 yards rushing on 41 attempts. The Panthers had 160 yards on 30 attempts. Lee led the Cats with 107 yards on 14 carries while Lawler had 96 yards on 20 carries. Boone was the top receiver with 6 catches for 74 yards and 2 touchdowns. Fox had 4 receptions for 31 yards. The Wildcats host the winless Paxon Eagles on Friday at Memorial Stadium.

The Wildcats host Paxon on Friday. The Wildcats JV squad came up against a buzzsaw on September 27 when it hosted Charlton County. The Cats struggled offensively and the Georgians won 18-0. It didnt go the way Wildcats hoped as neither the passing game nor the running game was successful. It did not make the coaches happy. Some adjustments have to be made on offense this week as well as personnel changes, said Coach Adam Brunner. After reviewing this that will be addressed. Expect this football team to be more aggressive and play with enthusiasm for the remaining four games. One element of the game that did impress Brunner was the teams defense. Our defense is playing with a lot of passion and that is due to the leadership of some of the upper classmen. If we can get some leadership out of this young group of players on the offensive side of the ball, then we carry momentum looking forward in the coming weeks, he said. 6-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. The JV defense continued to keep it close in the third period but the Georgians scored a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns to secure the win. Two of the bright spots for the JV came in the kicking game. Michael Ruise averaged 31.4 yards a punt and Victor Givens had three kick re turns for 74 yards or a 24.8 yard average. The JV travels to Bishop Kenny October 4 to face the Crusaders. PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Top: Corey Lawler eludes tacklers. Bottom: Falon Lee on his way to the end zone.
