It was a really great Saturday night, she said. Some people came after the rain on Friday, but nothing like they normally do. The rodeo was delayed until this weekend as a result of the weather.

JOEL ADDINGT ON N EWS EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.comSunday nights thunderstorm knocked out power for an estimated 2400 Baker County customers and left a number of north Macclenny residents looking for new places to live. About 8:30-9 pm a large uprooted tree fell into the roof of a two-unit duplex at 675 W. Ohio Ave., puncturing sizable holes that made way for the nearly 3-inches of rainfall that accompanied the storm the evening of October 7. The next morning, the 2130-square-foot duplexs occupants were busy moving out as a work crew dismantled the tree outside. It shook the house, recalled Connie Walker, an 8-year tenant of the property owned by Donnie and Barbara Gaines. Next, Ms. Walker said, water began coming through the air conditioning vents. Then, the bedroom ceiling collapsed on her mattress. Ms. Walker, who works for the Florida Department of Transportation in St. Augustine, said she was able to remove most of her property, besides the bed, before it was damaged. Her two pet dachshunds went unharmed as well. It could have been worse. Everyones OK and my stuff is replaceable, she said while moving her things into a U-Haul truck. artfully painted on her bedroom wall, however.

Hes still spreading that message just weeks before he leaves office after losing his re-election bid in an atmosphere of public protests over county budget issues, including the continued use of reserve funds to cover deficits, and pending sand mine proposals. Mr. Crews cast the only vote against the $28.2 million 201213 county budget at the commission meeting on October 2, which he later explained was his way of saying that the county had not done enough to ease the tax load on property own ers by spreading out the costs of public services more equitably. I did not vote in support of the budget for multiple reasons, Mr. Crews said in an interview on October 8. One is because the way it is currently done is a burden (on too many property owners) because the cost of services is falling on the few. He said the county should increase the current assessments for solid waste disposal fund those operations so that less reliance is placed on property tax revenues. He also said, as he proposed last year when he was board chairman, that an assessment should be levied on every household for emergency medical services, which is subsidized each year by the general fund. I think what we do have assessments for should be set high enough to cover all the expenses, Mr. Crews said. The faster the county moves toward assessments and away from property taxes would be in the best interest of the county as board I mentioned that was what we should do.

Aaron Roy Davis will be on that term, according to court records. Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered him to avoid contact with all of the six victims he stole from through March of this year. A later hearing will determine the restitution amount that will be part of the probation obligation. Mr. Davis was arrested for stealing property including tools, a trailer, farm implements and fence posts dur ing that period. He was also charged with defrauding a pawn shop and scrap yard by representing himself as the owner of items he turned in for cash, but those charges were dropped as part of the plea agreement. In other dispositions that day, Dustin Warner pleaded grand theft and was given a year in county jail less 139 days already served.

This years budget contains about $1.5 million in reserve funds, which was about $700,000 less than it would have been without additional spending cuts made by the county manager last month. Commissioners supported the use of reserve funds to balance the budget, though they all agreed the practice has to stop. delivery of services would help avoid future withdrawals from reserves, Mr. Crews said. Though he opposed the budget, Mr. Crews said he supported the property tax rate, which was set at 7.1495 mills, or roughly $7.15 for every $1,000 of taxable assessed property valuation. I believe it to be justified and fair based on the current system we have, he said. We could increase it to 10 mills and it But there is a better way of doing things, said Mr. Crews, a for mer Baker County deputy sheriff and currently security director at Northeast Florida State Hospital. You can only go to the expense side so many times before you have to start talking about cutting services, he said, addspending reductions made this year. I wasnt happy about it last year, but this year I think the county cut as much as we can. The future board is going to have to wrestle with the revenue side. It would be (politically) easier for future boards to increase the millage than tackle the issue of a more fair, across-the-board user type deal, such as assessments. If he had won reelection, Mr. Crews said, he would have pushed for a series of public workshops at different locations throughout the county to encourage residents to participate in a discussion on how best to fund future government services, including the issues of assessments, taxes and expenditures. The commission and the public needs to discuss what services the county is about to do away with, or how to pay for the ones they want to keep, he said. His ideas for funding county government were not the only reason Mr. Crews attracted opposition this election year, how ever. There was also the issue of two sand mining proposals, which generated tremendous public opposition, but which Mr. Crews refused to take a position against pending further reviews agencies. The sand mine thing, that was one thing (that worked against him), he said. I refused to take a position on it for or against. Mr. Crews said he had been bribed by sand mine opponents who told him they would deliver hundreds of votes for his re-election if he would commit to voting against the sand mine proposals. But he said it would have been unfair of me to render a decision before all the facts were in. After all thats happened, he said he doesnt regret any decisions or positions hes taken as a county commissioner. When I lay down at night I worry about a lot of things, but nothing that I did as a county commissioner, he said, adding that the voters made their decision and, Ill live with it. However, he said he fully inagain, though declining to say whether that would be for a seat on the county commission again he said hell make himself available to serve in any capacity on any county advisory board that In other business during the October 2 board meeting commissioners: contract with the Florida Coun cil of Industrial and Public Employees Local 2120, the collective bargaining representatives for employees in the county road and solid waste departments.

Its an exciting time for the Gerard for President campaign. My convention is coming along nicely. I have people anxious to be convention delegates, provided theres free food and beer. In short the bandwagon is pulling out of the station. Recently, I an nounced Hooters as my convention venue and my drunken convention goers cheered the announcement. Now, however, I must ready myself for the big presidential debate coming up next week. For some odd reason, I got left on the economy. Thats okay though because I dont know how my views on the economy would have gone over with the American public. For one, I have no intention of getting rid of Big Bird and PBS to save money. PBS costs a pittance of the budget anyway. The $486 million you could save is used by the Pentagon in well under one day. Besides, I like Big Bird. In fact, I was considering tap ping him as my vice president. Grouch, but if Im not mistaken, President Bush had him as his VP. No, wait a minute that was Dick Cheney. Its easy to make that mistake. Id raise money and balance the budget by imitating NASCAR, or something like it. Presidential candidates should be required to wear jackets with logos of all the big companies that have donated them millions of dollars. The companies would pay the money get free advertising to boot. ed a trial balloon with some of these big companies and also the other candidates and they balked at the idea. For some reason the candidates didnt really want the public to know who had donated the big bucks. And oddly enough, many of the companies were hesitant to have their name on the jacket as well. Imagine that. I watched the first debate and I think I could have easily taken these guys. President Obama looked grumpy and constipated and like hed rather be at home watching football. Gov. Romney looked better but he kept repeating the same stuff over and over. Neither of them bothered to answer the questions that moderator Jim Leherer asked. Hed ask a question and theyd just ignore it and say whatever they wanted for as long as they wanted. They should have put a banner with the question at the bottom of the screen so that the audience would know that they were avoiding answering it. Also Leherer should have had a button to turn off their microphone when they ran over their time limit. Ill suggest that for the next debate. My big problem is that while I plan to throw a great party at my convention at Hooters, I dont have a political party. I thought about reviving the Know Nothing Party from the 1850s since well I dont. But that doesnt fit my policies. The Know Nothings, led by Millard Fillmore, were antiimmigrant, anti-taxes, against all religious denominations except white, Anglo-Saxon Protestants and pro-slavery. Im sure there are some people who fall right into that category, but it just isnt me. I considered being a Whig, which is a time-honored political party. But I have my own hair and dont need a whig. Teddy Roosevelt was a member of the Bull Moose Party for a while and I have had many people tell me that I am it kind of has a negative connotation. I might use a symbol for my party like the Democrats and Republicans use a donkey and an elephant. I considered something immediately recognizable like Bigfoot, but that beef jerky company has him copyrighted. Hmm. Memorable but not scary? Ive got it. No elephant or donkey for me. My party sym bol is the possum. We may fall as road kill but there will always be another to take our place. The proud and mighty possum the perfect symbol for me. I have a symbol and Im ready for the debates, and now I am full of confidence or something. Dear Editor: Early voting in Florida has begun and I urge all citizens to vote as soon as possible. Make sure your vote gets in on time by not waiting until the last minute. Many people complain about big or too much government, but government begins with the cities and counties. smaller government here at home when useless rules and regulations are implemented. The closure of Barber Rd., in my opinion, was an unreason able restriction on our freedom of movement. The closure encroached on our right to travel a public road from point A to point B. While the reason for this road closure was supposed to be for safety concerns, the general consensus is the closure was to appease a handful of long time and politically con nected residents of the area. They considered Barber Road to be for their own private convenience. Some candidates for county commission seats have advocated reopening Barber Road. The three commissioners votpeople, but I disagree with their action. Voting can be a very effective way to deal with disagreements. One of the three commissioners voting to close Barber Road has already been defeated by a candidate that advocates reopening the road. If you are sincere about downsizing encroaching government restrictions please vote accordingly.James Smith Macclenny COUNTRY FEDERALCREDIT UNION Switching accounts should be easy!

They are leading us down a straight path to hell. Shame on you, Washington Democrats, for having little or no morals. It is no longer duty, honor, country with the Democrat Party, so after 63 years as a registered Democrat its time for me to change parties. How many more flagdraped caskets will have to arrive at Dover AFB before America wakes up?William Forbes A worried WWII veteran MacclennyDear Editor:Mitt Romney is a far better choice than Barack Obama for president. Here are just a few reasons. Jobs/Economy: during an economic downturn and made it much worse. His policies of excessive government spending and regulation have been a drag on the economy as a whole, as well as individual businesses. Employers are afraid to hire in the face of an uncertain tax and regulatory situation, and the possibility of future layoffs if things dont improve. Mitt Romney knows how the economy works, and how to run large wouldnt that be a change for the government? His Five-Point plan includes more domestic energy production, reigning in government spending, job training, opening world markets to American goods, and championing small businesses. Health Care : President Obama, Congresswoman Pelosi and Senator Reid have arranged for an unelected, unreviewable oversight panel to decide when a pain pill is given to an elderly patient instead of rehabilitative surgery. Governor Romney wants to repeal the disaster that is Obamacare, and put common sense reforms in place, such as portability of insurance when you change jobs, and tort reform so that doctors wont be driven out of practice by malpractice insurance premiums. Foreign Policy: The Obama Administration has been arrogant and inattentive to world affairs, resulting in unprecedented tragedy. The murder of our ambassador to Libya was largely due to inadequate protection against an Al Queda attack. Even the two former Navy Seals who died were not actually assigned to provide security to Ambassador Stevens, but came to his aid from another part of the city. President Obama had apologized to the Arab countries in 2009 for past U.S. arrogance, and that seems to have had no good effect. Moreover, the President has put pressure on our long-time ally Israel to give in to the stonewall demands of the Palestinians, who have never changed their position that Israel should not even be allowed to exist. The president of Israel has been Romneys personal friend for 30 years and a Romney administration would remain loyal to that country, a necessary ally in the volatile Middle East. Social Issues: President Obamas Health and Human Services Department is violating the constitution by forcing religious institu tions to provide contraceptive coverage, including abortion-inducing drugs, against their religious beliefs. Constitutional freedom of religion is being denied to Christians while Americans freedom of the speech is being curtailed because of Muslim religious sensitivities around the world. Gay marriage is now being promoted by the administration, while school choice is being taken away. Mr. Obama would appoint judges likely to support all of these policies in the future. The Real Romney: He is portrayed as being an out-of-touch millionaire who will only look out for his rich friends. On the contrary, he is honest, ethical and generous. He is an expert on how business and the economy work, and would share his abilities to promote success and a better standard of living for us all. His vice presidential nominee, Congressman Paul Ryan, is the leader among Congressional Re publicans on budget and entitlement reform, which our country desaffairs and domestic ones, a man of character like Mitt Romney is needed to bring the country back to its principles of freedom, morality and peace through strength. This election could not be more important. Florida will be one of the pivotal states in the election on November 6. Every vote will count!

Leroy Sweat Jr., 40, allegedly was at the neighboring residence of Steven Parker the evening of October 1 when he was confronted by wife Brandy Sweat, 37, who had been attempting to make contact with him. The wife told Deputy Patrick McGauley her husband started then throwing beer cans at her, then chased her with a large stick back to her vehicle that became bogged down. Mr. Sweat then reached inside, pulled her hair and struck her several times about the head. Mrs. Sweat then said she got a ride home from a neighbor, and later her husband again confronted her and struck her in the head, breaking a tooth. Questioned later, Mr. Sweat denied the allegations and admitted only to shoving his wife out of a bedroom where they were arguing. In another case, this one early the morning of October 5, Timothy A. Sweat, 45, was arrested at his residence on Mud Lake Rd. for making threats against family members, including wife Diane, 39, of Glen St. Mary. Witness Tammy Peterson, the accuseds sister-in-law, told Deputy Jacob Satterwhite he came to her residence on Gallberry Lane about 1:30 am after Mr. Sweats juvenile-age son went there fearing violence from his father, who was described as highly intoxicated.

The storm brought with it almost half the precipitation that fell over Macclenny between October 1 and October 8, some 6.2 inches, according to measurements from the weather station at the Ag Center. The station also recorded winds as high as 26.5 mph during the storm. Some 2000 Florida Power & Light customers lost power county-wide Sunday and crews were working early this week to restore power to a few hundred customers in Macclenny. The Okeefenokee Rural Elec tric Membership Corporation (OREMC) reported only 2-3 outages the day of the storm, but a fallen tree caused another 297 outages on Monday, October 8. Spokesman Gary Strickland said power had been restored to all customers by Monday afternoon. Adam Faircloth, emergency management director for the ment received reports of seven downed trees and four downed power lines during what he called developed in only a few hours with little warning. Mr. Faircloth began receiving updates from the National Weather Service, which was tracking the storm over Union, Bradford and Baker counties, late Sunday.

Robert Godwin of Pawnderosa Pawn called police the morning of October 1 when he learned a metal wood stove valued at $400 was missing from the rear of the store. A surveillance video viewed by Deputy Brandon Kiser showed two white males loading the stove into a Ford pickup just before 5 pm on September 30, a Sunday. The same video showed the truck park behind nearby Straighten Up or Dye salon being loaded up with what owner Jamie Yoder said was a salon chair with a $700 value. The next day, Deputy Kiser spotted a pickup matching the description on Woodlawn Rd. and questioned driver T.C. Green, 62, who admitted to taking both items believing they were discarded. The stove and chair were recovered from Mr. Greens residence on CR 125 and returned to the owners, who insisted charges their property.

Teachers have been going through training and developing new teaching materials based on the common core standards, all of which are being put to use for One kindergarten teacher, Tara Thompson, described the new approach as going a mile deep and an inch long versus going an inch deep and a mile long under the old standards. With regard to early learning, other teachers said common core puts greater emphasis on mastering a few basic concepts like the alphabet, in lieu of exposing students to a wider range of concepts and assuming students will master the most important ones in later grades. The new standards came up when the various teams of teachers from the PreK-Kindergarten Center presented their statemandated School Improvement Plan for 2012-13 to the school board the evening of October 13. The plan identifies specific performance benchmarks in reading, math and other areas; how the students preformed on those benchmarks the previous year and the performance goal for the coming year. But, a number of the goals than the previous years performance because, the faculty explained, the school is using new tests aligned with the new stan dards. The kindergarten reading goals, for example, is to have 85 percent of students achieve mastery, but 95 percent did so last year under the old standard. Common core standards also encourage more integration among the various subjects, school principal Bonnie Jones said. For instance, she said, incorporating numbers in reading lessons or science topics in writing lessons. The school reported much higher attendance rates last year than the previous year, 2010-11. The share of students with 10 or more absences, the level deemed excessive, dropped from 58 percent to 37 percent in 2011-12.

In 1981, I was appointed Baker County Fire Coordinator. In 1985, the county commission consolidated the independent re stations in the county forming The Baker County Volunteer Fire Department (BCVFD). The board then appointed me County Fire Chief and began budgeting for all operations. The BCVFD grew to a manpower level of over 100 re ghters by the mid 1990s. Today the number of front line re ghters has decreased to less than 50, and most importantly, our re protection rating with the Insurance Services Of ce (ISO) has DECREASED in some areas of our county. As your county commissioner, I will utilize my expertise in this area to work with our County Fire Chief, the Emergency Services Director and fellow commissioners on strategies to improve our protection. Develop a clear vision for future needs of our county and implement a plan to improve our ISO rating, which in turn will mean better protection and LOWER homeowners insurance premiums for YOU! Implement an aggressive recruiting plan to get the re ghter manpower back up to the minimal acceptable standards. Evaluate our equipment to ensure it meets our present day needs.October 7-13 is National Fire Prevention Week. Say Thank You to a re ghter for their service!!

Its administered in two sessions per grade and the sessions get longer as students progress through grade 5. The main problem is in elementary schools, Ms. Layton told the board the evening of October 1. It dies down in the middle school years and it turns into cyber-bullying later. She said such abuse can lead to lower grades, poor attendance and higher dropout rates for the victims of bullying. We know this is the premier curriculum, certainly for the cost and the implementation model, said Ms. Layton. The program has classroom activities and take-home materials to engage both teachers and parents. A training for facilitators of the program is scheduled for October 20 and locals schools can start the sessions shortly thereafter, Ms. Layton said. Facilitators must pass a back printing. The program was developed by Child Help, a Scottsdale, AZbased child welfare nonprofit, and Arizona State University. For school districts outside of Florida, the curriculum and associated materials cost $10,00012,000, the Child Help website shows.

Depending upon the size and type of structure mobile home, brick, concrete or wood frame owners could save hundreds of dollars a year, Chief Richard Dolan said last week. Theres a lot of variations, but I expect you can see (savings) between $200 and $500, Mr. Dolan said in an interview on October 5. Glen St. Mary Mayor Juanice Padgett, whose home on CR 125 is less than a mile north of Station 50, said she was happy to hear about the improved insurance rating, which means homes will families will save money. The mayor said she had called her insurance agent and was told not yet gone into effect on her policy. However, she said a friend told her that her policy had alsavings of about $400 a year. I guess it depends on your insurance company and your property value, Ms. Padgett said. During a meeting of the Baker County Commission on September 4, Chief Dolan announced Glen St. Mary and a few other neighborhoods had been upgraded this summer by the Insurance 7/9 to a class 5/9. The ISO evaluates thousands and assigns class ratings based on a 1-10 premium scale, with Class 1 representing superior property program doesnt meet ISOs minimum criteria. Most insurance companies use the ISO ratings to calculate insurance premiums. While Baker Countys fire department has improved in a number of ways, including train ing, certification, dispatching procedures, response times and equipment, the chief said, the upearned mainly by providing closThe fire department is still staffed entirely by volunteers, on tankers to transport water to no public water distribution system. Since we do not have a positive water supply throughout the county were rated two different ways, Chief Dolan said, adding given to structures within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant and the second number 9 is for any Next year, however, the chief ers to seven, which he said should get a higher ISO rating for the entire county. We are trying to acquire two 6,000 gallon tankers from the (Florida) forestry division, he said. Im going to be asking the board (of county commissioners) for money to buy them. Then well have the ability of going countywide to a class 5 (from a 9). The county now has four 3,000 gallon tank ers and one 1,500 gallon tanker. With the addition of the two used tankers from the state, Chief Dolan said ers would be able to pump 250 gallons per minute for two hours without stopping. Meeting that standard, he said, would earn the higher rating. Then anybody within five the county would be in a class 5, he said. The new rating assigned to county neighborhoods where hydrants were installed apply to 588 mostly residential structures, including 235 in Glen St. Mary. Hydrants also were installed near 255 structures in the Macclenny II subdivision south of Interstate 10 near SR 121, 42 residences along CR 23B near the county fairgrounds and 24 homes in the St. Marys Circle neighborhood off US 90, all three of which are served by Macclennys municipal water utility system. The last neighborhood to reing due to the installation of new hydrants was Warden Circle, home to 32 families near Baker Correctional Institution, which has its own water system. Something else that would greatly enhance the countys firefighting effectiveness, Chief Dolan said, is for people with ponds on their property to allow tankers. All our engines are pumpers and we can pump water from any pond, Chief Dolan said. Or, he said, with the owners permission a 6-inch pipe could be installed in a pond for use as what he terms a dry hydrant. Currently, three ponds on residential properties have been engine simply has to attach its pumping apparatus to the pipe to begin drawing water. None of the however, so we can draw water out of them but we dont get (ISO) credit for them, the chief said. More than water is needed, tion. Chief Dolan made a public appeal for more volunteers to help out as well. We are all volunteers so we can use some more help, he said. Mr. Dolan began his career as Jacksonville in 1979. He became County in 1994 and immediately began implementing a plan to upgrade the professionalism in the department. It took me awhile to get the equipment up to date and to get the people trained, he said. Id like to get back up to our old num2007, but the state killed that by requiring all volunteers to 2006. currently numbers about 60 volunteers, many of whom have fulltime jobs and families to support. Many quit rather than go through the time-consuming process of taking additional training courspaying job. Because of the economic times, a lot of people are having to work two jobs, Chief Dolan said. I lost a lot of them. The county isnt the only jurisdiction getting recognition from bilities. The City of Macclenny, which has two fully staffed and well equipped fire stations on duty round-the-clock, is moving forward with a plan to also bring insurance rates down. Macclenny Fire Chief Buddy Dugger said he plans to invite ISO auditors to visit the city later this month or in November preparedness and readiness ca pability. He said he hopes to get a better rating by early 2013. Im pretty well confident were going to get it, he said. The city has had a 4 rating for the past 10 years, but since then has installed new and larger water distribution lines throughout gines and two aerial trucks one on the north side of US 90 across from city hall at the main station and the othstation off Lowder Street next door to the county health department. Chief Dugger said he has been busy preparing his department for a new ISO audit for quite some time and believes hes ready to put his equipment and crews to the test. Weve been working on this probably a year and a half, he said. He told the city commission insurance rating was less than a few points from a 3. He also told commissioners that only 79 communities in Florida have a 5 or lower rating. Richard Sinclair, owner of Wells Insurance Agency in Macclenny, said a 3 kind of puts them in there with the big boys, noting that the City of Jackson ville carries a Class 3 rating.

ursday, October 11, 2012 T B C P Page 11 Page 10 T B C P ursday, October 11, 2012The Confederate Monument at the Olustee Battleeld Park will be rededicated this weekend in honor of the 100th anniversary of the original dedication on October 23, 1912. The rededication will be hosted by the Sons of Confederate Veter ans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy on October 13, beginning at 11 am at the monument site. Picnic lunches will be available following the rededication ceremony as well as live music by The Mercy Mountain Boys. What follows is a brief history of the monument written by Civil War historian and Macclenny resident Dicky Ferry and edited by The Press:After the smoke had cleared and the dead were buried, the armies marched away to fight other battles. The scarred trees were all that remained in silent testimony of the fury and carnage of the Battle of Olustee. lent except for an occasional traveler passing the area. In May of 1866, a little over two years after the battle, Lieutenant Frederick E. Grossman of the 7th U.S. infantry was ordered to proceed to the Olustee battlefield and determine the whereabouts and condition of the Union graves on found. The Union dead had been buried in shallow graves near where they had fallen, sometimes several in one grave. A few weeks after the battle, the graves had been disinterred by wild hogs in the area and the bones scattered all over the battlefield. Lieutenant Grossman and his command covered almost 2 square miles of the battlefield collecting the bones of all the fallen Yankees they could the remains and buried in a mass grave near the railroad. There he erected a wooden monument, 12 feet high and surrounded by a wooden fence measuring 27 feet by 18 feet. On the monuments four sides were the following carved inscriptions. On the southside, and soldiers of the United States Army who fell in the Battle of Olustee February 20, 1864. On the west side, Our Country, and on the east side, Unity and Peace. And on the north side, ample of the Dead. Lieutenant Grossman also reported that the confederate dead were principally buried on the south side of the railroad west of condition. During the following years the monument fell into a state of disrepair. The last recorded men tion of seeing it was in the fall of 1873 when Olustee veteran Loomis Langdon of the 1st U.S. Artillery reported viewing it from the platform of a passing train. He reported two sides of a weather stained and broken down fence were all that could be seen. Soon dead were also forgotten. Sometime after 1870 a young man named John Brown, and his wife Eliza moved to the Olustee Battlefield. John began to farm the battle torn ground and raise a family. John Brown had served in the 7th Florida infantry during the Civil War and was wounded in the right thigh during the battle of Missionary Ridge, Tennessee. After returning from the war he returned to his home in Providence and married Elza Shaw Brown. The 1880 census list John, Eliza and their 7 children living at the battlewould toss all the relics from the battle over the fence when they family member, years later, told about rolling the old cannon balls around in the yard while playing as a young girl. As the years progressed the timber industry grew in the area logged. An older gentleman in Olustee, Ishmel Arline, told stories of cutting cross ties around the battlefield and finding old bullets, muskets and artillery shells while working there in the early 1900s. The idea of building a monument at Olustee was the idea Mrs. J.N. Whitner, a member of the Martha Reid Chapter of Unit ed Daughters of the Confederacy in Jacksonville, Florida. Mrs. Whitners husband Joseph had fought at Olustee with the Florida Light Artillery also known as Gambles Artillery. She spent time with her husband reported to have gone over every foot of it. While on a train going from Jacksonville to Lake City in 1896 she overheard two gentlemen discussing the battle as they passed Olustee. Both had fought on the Federal side but were confused as to the exact site of the battle. Mrs. Whitner was able to point out to them the exact location and informed them as to the troop locations. From this incident, Mrs. Whitner realized the need to mark the site of the battle while there were still veterans alive to point out the place. In her own words, Or else it should become buried in oblivion forever. Accordingly, on the 27th of January, 1897, at the second convention of the State Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy held at Ocala, Florida, the minutes recorded her plea, Mrs. J.N. Whitner made an interesting address upon the claims of Olustee, the one spot of Florida soil that drank deep est of the blood of her heroes, and offered the following resolution: Resolved, That the U.D.C. of Florida, pledge themselves to raise a fund during the coming year or as soon thereafter as possible, for the purpose of erecting Olustee, and that the chair appoint a committee from each chapter to carry out this resolution. The resolution was passed and Mrs. Whitner was made chair man of the Martha Reid chapter committee for the monument. Later Mrs. Whitner con ceived the idea of asking for aid from the state on this important matter. She moved forward with a petition to the members of the state legislature in the form of a circular letter, in which she urged upon them the support of a bill to be introduced for the purpose of getting an appropriation to build She then proceeded to have 100 copies typed and had them placed on the desk of each legislator. Two years later in 1899 the state appropriated $2500 for the purpose of building a monument was formed by the state to oversee the collection of the remain ing funds needed to complete the monument. The commission consisted of former Confederate General Evander M. Law as chairman, a Mr. Garner who was president of the board of trade, Mrs. H.H. McCreary of Gainesville, General Reese of Pensacola, Mrs. Roselle Cooley of Jacksonville as chairman on contract and location and Senator D.U. Fletcher of Jacksonville as secretary and treasurer. A plan and design by Mr. La Mance of the Southern Stone and Marble Company in Jacksonville for $5000 was accepted. Slowly the remain ing $2500 needed began coming in from the various U.D.C. chapters and United Confederate Veterans chapters all over the state. An appeal was made to all the newspapers in the state to also assist in raising money from their subscribers. On August 6, 1909 a parcel of two acres of land was obtained from Austin B. Fletcher, an attor ney from New York City for the sum of $1. Mr. Fletcher owned a cross tie company in Jacksonville and had several tracts of land in the area. On September 27, 1909 another parcel of one acre was purchased for $1 from John and Eliza Brown. Sometime later the construction was begun and the scheduled unveiling was set for the anniversary of the battle on February 20th 1912. For reasons unknown the deadline was not met and it was rescheduled for Wednesday October 23, 1912. It was reported that over 4000 to witness the ceremony. A spe cial train was operated between Lake City and the monument and the regular trains all brought large crowds from various points in the state. A band traveled from Jacksonville to provide music for the event. A number of the veterans of the great battle, many feeble and battle scarred, were in attendance and asked to stand on the stage. The unveiling exercises began promptly at 10:40 oclock. The exercises began with an invocation by a General Long followed by a short address by the monument chairman the famous Confederate General Evander M. Law. He was quoted among other things as follows, That when you cease to honor your heroes, you cease to produce them. He then recounted some of the incidents of the battle. The monument and the title to the property were soon handed over to Mrs. Esther Carlotta, the Florida United Daughters of the Confederacy state president. She then turned the deeds over to Mrs. Whitner, who after a short speech presented them to Governor Albert W. Gilchrist. Governor Gilchrist responded and accepted the monument in the name of the State of Florida. He then paid a tribute to the heroes of Olustee and related several historical facts connected to the battle. Florida Senator Duncan U. Fletcher delivered the oration of the day. Senator Fletcher proclaimed, ... this granite tower ... stands Confederate soldier won admission to the temple of fame, states to the www.battleofolustee.org website. He was reported to have painted a beautiful word picture of the Olustee battle, pointing out the different positions of the two armies, and lauding the Confederate soldiers for their courage and bravery. The crowds cheered and the band from Jacksonville played Dixie. In the following years the United Daughters of the Confederacy administered the Battle U.D.C. raised money to construct the stone fence now enclosing the monument area. In 1949 the administration of the memorial was turned over to the Florida Board of Parks. Today the monument is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Recreation and Parks.

ElectEddie DavisJr.the citizens candidate for County Commissioner, District 5 Returning your county...Your government... BACK TO THE PEOPLEAs a candidate one of my goals is to put fairness and consistency back into the application of rules regarding code enforcement, land use, road paving seniority, government contributions, and the administration of community block grant monies. While visiting with many of you, I have heard your concerns. Ive talked with some of our county workers, who I hold in high regard for the job they do and listened to the concern in their voices. 1. May I pledge to never use any of governments tools as a means of reelection or for political advantage; nor will I inappropriately use my position as an elected official to influence our public employees in any manner. 2. On the contrary, I will defend the working man and when people of influence come before the board they will get a fair hearing but no different from anybody else. I stand clearly against any project with the potential to do harm to our county. In the recent discussions regarding the incinerator and the sand mining I would have strongly voiced my opposition and proceeded with an orderly plan to protect the community regardless of the heavy lobbying by special interests. 3. I intend to urge the commission to construct a public list of SHIP and road paving projects to be posted on the county web site for all to see. If on occasion, anyone is passed over in the process and another down the list advanced it will only be after it is thoroughly vetted in a public meeting and the reason recorded on the web site. My objective will be to return our government to the sunshine. 4. I will greatly reduce what is commonly known as walk on agenda items. Everyone, including the public, will be fully aware of the agenda subjects. When you boil it all down, there should be very few true emergency...last minute items. Please hear me when I say I am here to represent you and no one else. Your consideration and vote on November 6 will be appreciated.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.

People say I havent had a chance to congratulate you or Press : So are people calling yet with any sort of concerns or stuff they want you to tackle? Mr. Croft: Not yet. Some folks are offering to help if they can. Its pretty positive right now. Press: Any other ways your life has changed since the election? Mr. Croft: Im still attending the board meetings and workshops like Ive been doing for the last two years, so that part hasnt changed. Im trying to do more research on things when they bring things up, and do online digging on certain issues. Press : Any particular issues that have peaked your interest? Mr. Croft: The biggest one is the budget. The single big gest issue we face in this county economy and property values dropping, which effects the rev enue for the commission ... But yet government is still expected to provide levels of services the same as they have in the past and maybe even more services. It reaches into every aspect. If you want to increase rescue services, it takes money. If you want more road maintenance, it takes money. Theres not a thing you can discuss that doesnt come back to that budget ... I am convinced that we need to return to a line-item-by-lineitem discussion of the budget ... I want to take the budgets the de partment heads submit, and sit down in a series of workshops ... (and say) tell me what youre ask ing for. Justify to me why youre needing this. I know (board chairman) Gordon (Crews) says thats micro-managing. But I dont see it that as micro-man agement. Unless its changed over the years, the two things that county commissioners are charged with by statute is preparing an annual operations budget and passing legislation. So if youre not going to get down into that budget, youre basically saying that 50 percent of what the statutes say I should do, I dont really want to get into that. Press: What are your thoughts on the current county budget; prepaying for inmates a year in advance to save money, using reserves to balance the budget? Mr. Croft: The reserve fund in dropping. If theres not a change in course there wont be one before long. Then youll be in the situation we were in 84 to 88. When I was on the board, we didnt know what a reserve fund was. There had never been one before. It took everything you had to make ends meet. If you wanted to make improvements, you had to come up with a revenue source before you could do it. We never thought about bor rowing money. Press: What about emergencies? Mr. Croft : We kept contingency line items in the budget. That was, if you will, our reserve fund. Contingency is actually a part of the budget while the reserve is sitting over here and its not included but you can dip into it if you need to. We didnt have that. I think we tried to have a 5-7 percent contingency in every de partment. There was a some wiggle room there, but is wasnt a lot. We were just blessed we didnt get hit with a Tropical Storm Debby or stuff like that ... Right now, I think its been a little too easy, to go, OK, we either have to cut a million dollars and that will cut services and thats a tough decision, but we have $4 or $5 million we can slide over this time. But there will come a time when you cant. So why not face those issues now with long term planning to curb dependency on that fund and youre living within the means of whats coming in ... But right now, we need to know whats in the budget, what could be trimmed, or what could be increased. We may be hurting in areas that we dont know about because we havent sat down with department heads and talked ... Certain commissioners say they meet (individually) with department heads and constituplace to meet with them and say you need to make a cut ... Things need to be done in a open board or workshop session. Second of all, (in a board meeting) people will be batting ideas around ... and you get a brainstorming session and come up with a workable solution ... To just sit up there and say cut 10 percent, that may be a department that cant handle a 10 per cent cut and maintain the level of service that we say we want. But over here, we can say this level service doesnt need to be that high, and cut 15 percent. Press : What else can you tell me about your plans? Mr. Croft: I think we need to use more citizen advisory boards. We have a lot of people in our county who are smart folks, with strengths that I would never have and vice versa ... Lets see what the public will accept, what they are thinking. When you start talking about cutting areas of the budget, you start getting people defending their turf ... A good example is the Council on Aging. Some people say, well, thats an area I dont think we should cut ... Then other folks, beforehand its all about cutting budgets, and you say cut recreation, and they say not that, we have to protect the kids. Press: So an advisory board of service they can live with, what should be cut or not cut? Mr. Croft: What are they willing to pay for. I can say I want this, but am I really willing to pay for that. Right now, I believe that Joe Q. Public is saying if you have to do away with stuff, do away with it. We cant handle paying more. Thats a pretty simple answer. Press: Are they telling you what they want to see cut? Mr. Croft: All I can do is listen to what they say at that point. Press: So theyre not saying I could live without garbage collections sites, for instance? Mr. Croft: Right. Theyre not Press: Any other proposals you hope to bring to the board? Mr. Croft: Theres several things Ive got plans for. Im working on ideas for expanding input from citizens during board meetings. I mentioned in my ads video tapping board meetings. You got a lot of people genuinely interested but because of work or family issues, they cant come. Press: But of course that all costs money, too. Mr. Croft: It costs money, but in this day and time with the technology, its not that big of an expense anymore. And we have IT people on staff already ... I dont want to go into super duper details because theres some people I want to get with. Im one of these types, I dont want to walk in and say I want to record board meetings ... I want to do the re search and have an them option. They may chose not to do that option or tweak it. Press : You want to come with a clear plan. Mr. Croft: Right, its not going to be something generic ... But Ive learned you dont feed the whole load to the cattle at the ties. What can be done immediately, and what can wait? Press: Let me get your sense priority, whats number two or three? Mr. Coft: I think we need to develop a plan to work closer with the Chamber of Commerce ... We cant sit back and say well cut the budget, but not look at getting more money into this county, and my preference is for getting more money through bringing industry to the county, not raising taxes, at this point. Special assessments on rescue, raising the millage rate; all these things, to me, at this point, are not even on the table. Not until I feel comfortable Ive carved the budget to make it palatable to the public ... Mr. Press: Anything else? Mr. Croft: Thats probably all I want to go into at this point. Press : Any other issues you think your constituents are con cerned about? Whats on their radar? Mr. Croft : People are really distrustful of government right now, at all levels. I think they want to feel good about their to be sitting down there at every meeting to keep an eye on them rascals, then theyre not trusting them that much ... But I think people want to see a whole board thats openminded, not a board thats saying we have all the answers and you dont because you dont un derstand anything. And I think there has been some of that attitude exhibited by the board in the past few years where citizens are not made to feel as welcome as they should be. They have the right to be there and ask questions. And if they dont understand it, explain it to them ... I think people want more open government, they want to feel good about it. And they want to see you trying, dont just sit up there and say thats just always how weve done it.

The boys scored the most points in their respective grades and classes during the recent 8-day archery unit at Keller Intermediate School, which has been a favorite sports unit there for more than two decades, Ms. Davis said. Despite using 30-year-old equipment, she said the students still get so excited when their arrow hits the target. On the rst day of the unit, the target was struck 32 times. But by the eighth day, the hits totaled 355, including 95 bulls eyes. Archery is a unique sport because anyone can hit the target, said Ms. Davis.

Crawford, Supervisor of ElectionsGENERAL ELECTION PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Pictured clockwise from top: Marquis Williams tackles air-born receiver, Lenny Carter and Rashodd Hadley (right) team up for the quarterback sack and Falon Lee on the run.Last Friday the Wildcat football team won its second district game with a 36-0 shutout of Paxon. The win put the Cats atop the district standings with Bishop Kenny. This week the Wildcats face a stiff test in the Bolles Bulldogs. Last year the Bulldogs squeaked out a one-point win at Memorial Stadium and there is nothing the Cats would like than to re turn the favor on the road. Here are some of Coach Ryan Sulkowskis comments on the games. Press : The defense once again had a strong game against the Eagles. Who were some of your standouts? Sulkowski : They all stand out to me. We played once again with a purpose defensively. One guy in hood Hadley. He is an amazing young man and football player. As a junior, he really is the quiet leader of our defense. He just continues to show up around the ball. I was very pleased in the secondary as well. I think our corners Mike Boone, Falon Lee and Anthony James, who is back from an injury that side lined him for most of the season, and safeties Jared Crews and Blayne Merchant, who delivered some big hits, did very well shutting down their passing attack. Our defensive line continues to improve and makes things tough on our opponents and unknown guys like Marquise Williams and Hunter Chambers are making plays from their linebacker positions. Bottom line is we are only giving up 66.2 yards per game rushing and 142 passing. Our defense has really been playing well and will have to continue to play well this week with our visit to Bolles. Press: What kind of challenges does a team like Bolles pose that other teams might not? Sulkowski: They do not make mistakes and in any football game you hope that you make less mistakes than your opponent. Bolles is the defending state champion for a reason. Playing great teams like Bolles is why our kids work the way they do all year. Everyone wants to be on the big stage and play top-ranked competition and that is exactly what we will be doing on Friday night. Press: How much of the playbook will be open going into the Bolles game? Sulkowski : Funny thing about us is that every game we kind of surprise ourselves. We literally do not have a playbook because week-to-week it changes so much. You tailor-make your game plan based on what their tendencies are each week or what we as a staff evaluate by watching countless in the coming weeks, but overall every game plan is based on exploiting the other teams weaknesses on both sides of the ball. Last year offensively we did not show a double tight end look all season and waited until the Bolles game to do so and the result was almost 600 yards of offense and a narrow 1-point defeat. The back and forth mind-game known as coaching is so fun some times. If the kids you are coaching are on their game and are executing the game plan, the possibilities are endless. Press: Its only natural that the team will be jacked up about facing a team of the talent and tradition of Bolles. To what degree do you try to keep a lid on the intensity? Sulkowski: You never try to harness inten sity. Our kids should be excited about every game and show the same intensity versus Bolles as we do against any other team. Its too easy to be intense and excited at kick-off only to see it die down once the game gets into the 2nd quarter. Keeping a level head, playing relentless, and pushing that energy into executing their particular assignment is the most important thing. Press: The offensive line has played very well lately. What are some of their strengths, besides their obvious physical strength? Sulkowski : We are averaging nearly 300 yards a game rushing this season at the halfway point and a lot of that comes on the back of the offensive line. Corey Lawler and Falon Lee could not gain the yardage they are on the ground without some block ing at the point of attack. For an offense to average over 440 total yards per game is impressive through half of our regular season games, but we as a staff have been preaching to the team that we can only go as far as our offensive line takes us. We are improving on missed assignments and are getting a body on a body and that is what you want as a coach. To be successful you must have an offensive line who ing a former offensive lineman I can certainly understand the importance of the job that they do up front week in and week out. Ask any of our offensive skill guys who they give credit to and they are quick to say the big boys up front (Jon Kinney, Dillon Mills, Casen Noles, Bo Throw guys like CeCe Jefferson and even Falon Lee and Corey Lawler into the mix because they are all used as blockers in a sense at times and the unride the big boys through our district schedule.Cats capitalize on Paxon turnovers in 36-0 shutoutBOB GERARD | SPOR TS The Wildcats join Bishop Kenny atop the district standings with their 36-0 win over Paxon on Friday.

The Cats and then cruised to a 36-0 victory. The Wildcats have had Pax ons number over the last few years. Last season they shut out the Eagles to set a scoring record of 64-0 (broken in this years 73-0 waxing of Duval Charter). Though Paxon is consider ably better than last years ver sion, it still was unable to stop BCHS. In the Cats opening possession, Falon Lee romped for 20 yards into Paxon territory to the 45-yard line. Corey Lawler, who has been running the ball very well as the Wildcats marched to a 4-1 record, moved the ball to the 3-yard line and on the next play, Mike Boone ran it in for the score. Lawler picked out Boone in the end zone for the two point conversion and an 8-0 lead. Paxon had trouble all night long with long snaps. After the opening possession stalled, the center snapped the ball over the head of the punter, and though he got off a good punt to the Wildcat 32 it was the first of many miscues for the Eagles. Lee moved the ball into Paxon territory on three successive runs and Lawler found Mike Boone for the touchdown. Boone got an excellent block from lineman Jon Kinney to break him out into the open and from there Boone did the rest as he scored from 45 yards out. The conversion attempt was no good but the Cats were up 14-0 at the end of the The second period saw the Cats capitalize on a second poor snap as the Eagle punter bobbled the ball and the Wildcats rushed in and blocked the punt to give BCHS the ball on the Eagle 7-yard line. Three plays later, Lawler ran it in from 2 yards out and then found Boone in the end zone for the conversion score and a 22-0 lead. BCHS then got another big break to stop one of the Eagles better drives of the night. Hunter Chambers put a big hit on the Eagle ball carrier and forced a fumble. Marquis Williams alertly pounced on the ball to give BCHS possession at the Paxon 19-yard line. Lee took the ball 11 yards to play of the short drive. The Cats had a little trouble of their own, bobbling the ball but recovering the fumble and on the next play, Lawler hit Boone on a fade route for the score. The conversion was no good but BCHS was up 28-0. yard Corey Lawler scamper for the touchdown. Boone swept around the end for the conversion and the Wildcats got their second shut out in a row against Paxon. The Wildcats will face a much stiffer test October 12 on the road at Bolles. Last season the Wildcats had a two touchdown lead in the fourth quarter, only to see the Bulldogs roar back to take a 28-27 win at Memorial Stadium. Bolles has not been quite as dominant this year as in past years, with a rare 33-28 regular season blemish against Fleming Island. But there is no doubting the They are defending state champions, having beaten Miami Washington 33-25 at the end of last season. you watch on them and from what year, it just looks like the same thing ... great athletes who do what they are coached to do, said Coach Ryan Sulkowski.

She was presented a tiara by school principal Sherry Barrett and last years winner Baily Pisani. She also received a trophy, sash, crystal wand and owers. First, second, third and fourth runners up were given trophies and owers as well. They are also pictured above (from left), third runner up Anna Bowen, fourth runner up Carsyn Gris, Ms. Mobley, second runner up Marissa Rhoden and rst runner up Allison Theophile. The group will adorn the 2013-14 school calendars distributed at open house. The pageant was directed by Tara Rhoden and McKenzie Harrison, both sixth grade math teachers. The Master of Ceremonies was Mandy Kinghorn. The event, which featured 83 young ladies this year, serves as a fund raiser for the math department. More than 75 percent of the girls had never participated in a pageant and this gave each of them the opportunity to be a beauty queen for the night; whether they won or placed was insignicant, said Ms. Barrett. The importance was that each girl had the opportunity to be aliated with a school event that made them feel good about themselves and hopefully they made memories that will last a lifetime.

I thought when Sundays game was tied 3-3 at the half that the Chicago Bears were falling right into the hands of the Jaguar defense. Then the Bear defense scored two touchdowns and the floodgates opened. The Jaguars, meanwhile couldnt complete a pass. Perhaps Blaine Gabbert will turn into an NFL quarterback. He was a different guy when the more poised, willing to stand in the pocket. But the last few games, if his hint of coverage he goes right to his check-down receiver instead can get open. seeing my Seminoles fritter away a perfectly winnable game in Raleigh. Why in the world, with three fabulous running backs, do you only use one? Theres nothing wrong with Prior and Wilder theyve proven it in the past. But instead they wore out an injured Chris Thompson. Grrr. So many times this decade the Seminoles have shot themselves in the foot. My wife, a Gator fan, came through midway through the third quarter and said, What are you griping about, theyre leading. My response: Im waiting for the other shoe to drop. It dropped. who looked terand deserved the win. Mike Gillislee may not be as fast as Chris Thompson but he was fast enough to put the Tigers on the ropes. My favorite player of the game was safety Matt Elam. He was a monster out there. My favorite play of the day from Elam was the hit he put on his own cornerback. Loucheiz Purifoy had just broken up a big pass play and while he was standing celebrat ing, Elam blindsided his teammate, knocking him six feet into the LSU bench. Purifoy got up ready to kill someone and didnt care that it was Elam. Some choice words were exchanged. The Gators will rise up in polls and FSU drop. I think the Gators may crack the top 5 and the Noles drop out of the top ten. As for the Jaguars wait till next year.BOB GERARD | SPOR TS The Wildcat swim team had its final official meet of the 2012 swim season on the road October 4 at Suwannee County.
