COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF This is a tale of two city parks in Macclenny, both of which are receiving unprecedented attention, though each for a different reason. It is the best of times for Heritage Park, which has sprung from humble beginnings as a volunteer-created restored village on Lowder Street a few years ago to become the towns showcase for all sorts of activities, including festivals, re unions, historic demonstrawith Santa Claus or just strolling along the grounds. Less than a mile away, at Macclennys City Park at the duck pond between West Boulevard and Eighth Street, it is the worst of times. It has become a place where few venture at night, other than transients, vandals and others who go there to hang out, drink and smoke pot. both parks recently, heaping praise on Heritage Park for becoming an attractive asset that is rapidly becoming self-sus taining through modest admission fees, while lamenting City Park for becoming a less attractive nuisance. bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll.Abusive ex pummels expectant motherSee page 7 D ickie F erry adds hall of fame to list of accoladesSee page 11ONLINE POLL RESULTSIs it good news or bad news that head football coach Ryan Sulkowski is leaving?52% Good 25% Bad23% Undecided T ough defense hands Cats rst two season lossesSee page 16 JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgBaker County got an early Christmas gift last week when the long-sought after US 90 bypass road project was ranked number one by the Northeast Florida Transportation Plan ning Organization for funding through a state program that helps build roads with region al and economic development value. The vote to do so, in which Baker County Commission er James Croft participated, means theres a good chance that the state will award more than half-a-million dollars for engineering and design of the coveted roadway. The bypass, planned to connect US 90 east of Macclenny near the Walmart Distribu tion Center to South 5th Street (228) near the interstate and the Walmart Supercenter, would not only give semi-tractor trailers a more direct route to I-10, but it would open up large tracts of land between the two highways to new development. Most of the property in the area is owned by the Knabb Familys Labeuna Farms, Inc. and the Barber family. The $650,000 in potential funding to get the bypass started would come from the Florida Department of Transporta tions Transportation Regional Incentive Program, also known as TRIP. The program was created by state statute in 2005 to encourage local investment in regional transportation improvements. Typically the program will pay 50 percent of a projects cost, provided it addresses re economic development. The remaining share usually comes from local sources, whether they be public or private. But in the case of the US 90 bypass, the 50 percent match requirement may be waived by FDOT due to Baker Countys designation as a Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern, or RACEC. Macclenny resident James Bennett, FDOTs urban transportation development manager for the District 2 region headquartered in Jacksonville, said in years past the countys RACEC status has allowed FDOT to waive the local funding match for projects funded through the states Rural Economic Development Initiative, or REDI, program. Many projects we fund with them we already waive the match, but [the TRIP] program requires a local match, said Mr. Bennett. But we made the determination that theres enough uncertainty in the two [REDI and TRIP] statutes that forward without a match. With no local match needed, the project was ranked atop a list of 11 potential ones in line for TRIP funding by staff at the Northeast Florida Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). The bypass road received such high marks because it meets nearly all of the goals of the TRIP program, namely imNot only would it remove troublesome semi-truck traf JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR email@example.comWildcat head football coach Ryan Sulkowski has accepted a new job with Coffee County Central High School in Tennessee. The Coffee County school district began looking for a new head football coach immediately after the 2013 season ended, a season the areas local newspaper Manchester Times characterized as dismal. Sulkowski comes from Baker County, Florida and by most all accounts brings an impressive resume with him. He led Baker County to ing to USA Today contrast, Coffee County would have to add up wins from each of the past 10 seasons to accumulate 31 wins, wrote the Manchester Times Josh Peterson. The absence of Ryan Sulkowski and his wife Heather, the high schools volleyball coach, leaves two key vacancies in the Wildcats athletic department. BCHS principal Thomas Hill said the head coachs brother Joey Sulkowski, who coaches track for the Wildcats, is not leaving for Tennessee, and other assistant football coaches appear to be staying as well. Whenever a head coach leaves, some assistant coaches typically leave as well, he said. At this point, that has not occurred. Mr. Hill said a nationwide search will begin to replace the coach. He added that several inquiries have been made about the position by phone and he looks forward to collecting resumes in the coming month.

Theres a discrepancy between what the Department of Education website originally reported as the BCHS rate (68.8%) and what Principal Thomas Hill reported (revised upward to 72.28%), but the state average is 75.6%. Neighboring Nassau County came away with the best overall set of numbers in its four high schools: West Nassau (Callahan) 93%, Hilliard 86%, Yulee 91% and Fernandina 91%. St. Johns County, with one of the highest ratings of Floridas 67 public school systems, turned in what one would expect. Clay County hung in around the 80% mark (Fleming Island blew the top off at 97%plus comparable to Ponte Vedra and Duvals Stanton Prep and Douglas Anderson). Paxons brainiacs topped the area at 100%. Putnam County brought up the rear; the anchor district if you will. Looking over the First Coast numbers, Baker High comes in about even with Jacksonville and other area schools in the median to lower economic strata. Nothing surprising about that, but how does that explain the Nassau County numbers? Callahan, Hilliard, Yulee and to some extent Fernandina (absent Amelia Island) are all about the same demographics as Baker County (income, education, racial mix, etc.), so why is their lowest performing school (Hilliard) running 14 percentage points ahead of us in the number of graduates? Its a mystery. The schools are pretty much run the same (Tallahassee makes the rules), so that leaves variables like the quality of teachers, the administrators and the emphasis placed on education in the homes. Which is it? And speaking of the influ ences at home, do you ever wonder how the conversation goes when 16-year-olds announce to their family that theyre throwing in the towel on school. Isnt there an adult somewhere, even an extended family member, who takes them aside and explains that the road theyre taking is a downhill slide to nowhere. That theyll likely spend the rest of their lives on the bottom rung with virtually no chance of ever climbing higher. The earning power of dropouts is below a sustainable wage, which means theyll end up in the ever-expanding pool of non-productives depending on government for the basics. Those who stuck it out in high school, and especially those who went on to college or learned a viable trade, recognize the folly of dropping out and hopefully drill that into the heads of their children and grandchildren. Think about it this way: one of every four students who show up as a freshman at BCHS will not graduate. That means, at the very best, three graduates are destined to carry their weight through adulthood. More likely in the ever-expanding welfare state, half the kids will end up supporting the other half, regardless of whether they have a high school degree, but thats another matter. Who is not getting to these kids? What is Nassau County doing that we are not? Baker Highs percentage of graduates has trended upward since 2008-09 when it sank to 64.5%, so there is improvement. But its a stubborn pace and theres that annoying sense its still not acceptable that one in four simply arent staying with the program. What percentage of students who don the cap and gown ev ery June actually know what they need to know going out into the world is also another matter, but we have to keep them on campus to have any chance of exposing them to learning. Suggestions welcome. What you had to say ...

IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley Dear Editor:As the midterm elections of 2014 approach, organizational activities and promotional efforts by our local party are beginning to take shape. In Florida, the governors race is now clearly between Governor Rick Scott and former Governor Charlie Crist. In Washington, we all know about the dismal rollout of the Obamacare plan. Locally, at the Baker County Republican Party, we have much to do, from registering new and relocated voters to registering dissatiscrat voters, to putting together the best Get out The Vote campaign ever assembled in Baker County. With these dynamics in place, we seek to be an inclusive party and a home for everyone that believes in the core values of the Republican Party. Baker County has a need to grow and develop its tax base and the Republican Party can and should be the best platform to facilitate this economic growth. Good paying jobs for our hard working residents have got to increase and we have got to help do a better job of recruiting companies to look at our communities and locate here. If we dont increase our tax base, we jeopardize our our education system, and services for the sick, needy, and elderly. Economic development is key for Baker County. Our county has geography on our side. The highway sys tem makes it convenient for businesses to choose Baker County; I-10 runs right through our county, I-75 is a short distance to the west, I-95 is a short distance to the east. We have a very good strategic business location that we need to take advantage of. Clearly the economy is on an upswing, but the pace isnt as great as we would like it to be. We must all work together within the party to take away the perception that Baker County is opposed to new or expanding business. New organizations like the Baker County Business Alliance have been created to help make this much needed change in Baker Countys image. Businesses have many choices, as do all registered voters. Our home of Baker County has a lot to offer, and we need to convince these businesses that this is the place where their business can reach its fullest potential. Another challenge we face as 2014 approaches is communicating who we are, what we stand for and what we believe in to all residents of Baker County. Our values are truly the values of the majority of our citizens. Our party workers need to go door-to-door, introducing ourselves and soliciting support from every citizen willing to listen. We need to enter the New Year with a renewed optimization and faith in our Republican Party. We need new members, new ideas, and a renewed sense of patriotism. We need you to actively join your Republican Party. Please give us a call today at (904) 982-8191 or (904) 314-2887, visit our Face book page or website at http:// bakergop.org/. Kirk L. Gravelle, Chairman GOP Party of Baker CountyLagging BCHS graduation rate a bit of a mysteryChristmas is here, time for good cheer Part 2. I was watching television last night and tuned in to The Great Christmas Light Fight on CBS. In it celebrity judges I had never heard of went to four different houses to give away a $50,000 cash prize to some lucky family who had gone way overboard with their Christmas lights. The houses averaged 200,000 lights; some were LED and some incandescent. Almost all had their lights computer assisted so that they had a show besides just colored lights. These light shows rivaled what you see at Disney World and Universal, with professional sound tracks, strobes, video projections and animatronics. Though it was pretty impressive it wasnt pretty. I am no Grinch, far from it. I love Christmas lights. But enough is enough. Rather enough is too much. I like Christmas lights because they are quaint. I particularly like the big lights that take me back to my childhood. I love driving downtown and seeing the light displays and we regu larly drive around to look at the lights around the county. One year my wife took the kids to a particularly decorated home on Craig Road in Jack sonville and it took two hours to get through the crowds to look at the house. I guess some folks just get obsessed with Christmas like everything else. One of the homes had a million lights. Several things crossed my mind as I watched this show. Why was it always the guys that were the obsessive ones? They have this weird little glint in their eyes, and they just had to keep getting better than the previous year. All of them seemed to have the same mantra How can we top last year? Their spouses kind of nodded and smiled. I wondered at what point their wives would shake their head and say, Stop. Youre spending our childrens college money. But it didnt seem like they cared that much. I can imagine trying to slip 100,000 lights past my wife. Honey, why is our light bill $4500 this month? Last month it was $136. Oh, its probably the 100,000 lights I put up on the house. Right. That probably explained why the circuit breaker box exploded when I tried to toast a slice of bread. Might be. That also might explain the constant buzz and humming and why my hair is standing on end. Maybe. It could also explain why the neighbors arent speaking to us. Really? Well, not exactly. Theyre talking to us, but the conversation is laced with four-letter words. One of them did stop to tell me it took her two hours to get past the crowds and drive to the end of the road. Hmm. Do you think we should give her a cut of the hot chocolate concession? Maybe. Another mentioned that she hadnt slept in a week because its brighter than noonday in her bedroom. Her husband has taken to wearing his sunglasses to bed. Maybe its just a fashion statement. Doubt it. She also claimed that the Christmas music blar ing out of your 50,000 watt speakers are making the leaves fall off the trees and her dogs hair fall out. Is he a Mexican hairless? I dont think so. Also, I got this odd call from someone claiming to be from NASA saying that they can see our house from space. Cool. Maybe not. They claim it is dazzling the Hubble telescope and they cant take pictures of deep space. Thats too bad. Yes. And there have been complaints about that animated diorama where the herd of reindeer run over grandma again and again. People claim it is traumatizing their children. Some folks have no sense of humor. She would have me Baker Acted for sure. Hows that for holiday cheer?

The plan seeks more east-west connections around the more developed areas in Sanderson, Glen St. Mary and Macclenny. road tracks south of US 90 could also help alleviate backups when trains roll through the county, though such design elements, along with the roads alignment, have not been determined yet. The TPOs board of directors, as well as Commissioner Croft and a representative for Putnam County, who together form state law, all voted on December 13 to recommend the priority list as proposed by staff to FDOT, mination on funding. Mr. Croft called the vote historic since Baker and Putnam counties are normally non-voting members of the six-county TPO, which usually doesnt fund projects here because they dont mesh the TPOs mission to im prove regional transportation infrastructure. It was exciting that something could be getting off the ground, Mr. Croft said of the bypass which some have called the Walmart-to-Walmart expressway because it would spill out on 228 near the Supercenter at I-10. Mr. Bennett said the list would be reviewed along with those from other TPOs in the districts 18-county area. I manage the TRIP program, so what I have to do is make a recommendation to my management team. They know what were doing and have ultimate sign off on it, explained Mr. Bennett, a Baker County native. He said a decision on the projects will be funded in the current June 30, 2014, should come in a couple of weeks with contract approvals to follow six-to-eight weeks later. The chances of the US 90 bypass getting current year funding are favorable, he said, but cautioned its still too early in the evaluation process to say for sure. He also stressed that securing a local match for the projects construction phase, which may include right-of-way donations by private landowners along the route, would increase the likeli hood that TRIP money will be available after the design and enYouve got to keep in mind this serves as an incentive program. A local match gets it better priority, Mr. Bennett said. The desire is to serve as an incentive to leverage local and private funding ... There needs to be additional efforts along the way to make this project happen, beyond relying on the state for funding. There needs to be other commitments. The county commission also recently approved a list of road projects it wanted added to portation plan for the county. projects. Among those with funding for construction in 2015 with associated lengths and costs are: lumbia County line to Sanderson, 11.8 miles and $4.4 million. County line to Georgia line, 14.7 miles and $5.6 million. CR 125 from CR 127 to CR 250, 5.5 miles and $1.6 million. Napoli Road to SR 121, 1.3 millions and $330,000. That will make people in my district tremendously happy, said Mr. Croft, an Olustee resident, of the latter project. At the December 10 city com mission meeting, City Manager Phil Rhoden said there has been an ongoing problem at City Park with vandalism, vagrants and transients sleeping in the bushes and people drinking and using drugs. the park and made some drug arrests and weve cleaned out some of the brush where transients had moved in and were living, Mr. Rhoden said. In addition to drugs and alcohol offenses, the park has been a target of vandals who have damaged childrens playground equipment, picnic pavilions and bathrooms. Originally, we had 10 picnic tables there, Mr. Rhoden said. Now, were down to three. Theyve destroyed them. However, he said the city and are on a mission to clean up the park and make it a wholesome, safe environment for children and families alike once again. Were going to stay on top of it, the city manager said. Major Gerald Gonzalez, the sheriffs operations chief, echoed the city managers concerns. Its a beautiful park, Major Gonzalez said. But its also attracted some folks who want to smoke marijuana, drink, spray paint stuff and vandalize stuff, and other unlawful purposes. Increased patrols and random spot checks during the night, he said, are already having a positive effect, including several arrests. Were going to put a stop to it, he said. Weve increased our presence up there and were determined to make that place a good place for people to go to. Were in and out of there on a regular basis day and night. Major Gonzalez said he knows people who are reluctant to go to City Park because theyre afraid. Ive heard, personally, from women who like to go up there to the walking track but theyre afraid of whats going on, he said. He said women are advised not to go to the park alone. Its always safer to go with a friend or two, he said. For the most part, illegal drug offenses at the park has been limited to individuals smoking marijuana, rather than selling the drug, which would be a felony. Were not getting a lot of reports on that (drug sales), nor seeing any evidence of it, the major said. In addition to increased law enforcement at the park, Mr. Rhoden said the bathrooms are now locked at night to cut down on vandalism and keep people from sleeping inside them. Theyre locked about an hour after sundown and reopen about 7 a.m., he said, adding that the Signs state that the park closes at sundown and reopens the next morning, but it is not fenced and locked, so there is nothing to keep people from going there at any time. Also, there is no law prohibiting anyone from visiting the park at any hour as long as theyre not doing anything illegal. If theyre up there for a good reason and not to destroy city property, or use drugs or drink, were pretty much going to let it be, Major Gonzalez said. But that doesnt mean the park and people in it are not being observed. Right now, its just deputies who keep an eye on the park, but in the near future long-distance surveillance cameras could begin recording everything and everybody on the grounds day and night. search the cost of installing cameras at various locations to help cut down on undesirable activ ity there. Maj. Gonzalez said the These are becoming increasingly popular with a lot of businesses and public places, he said. Some people dont like them, but theyre very effective (as a deterrent and prosecution tool) and provide great evidence. Mr. Hill received a formal resignation letter from the coach employment tentatively set for December 20. Ryan Sulkowski appears eager to start a new chapter in his career. It was a pleasure to serve as head coach for the past four years, he wrote on the BCHS Wildcats Facebook page. We love these kids and will continue to support them for the rest of their lives! ... Excited for the next chapter as a Coffee County Red Raider! While here he led the Wildcats to four winning seasons and a district championship in 2012. But recent events surrounding his off-the-field conduct have mired that success. Earlier this year the school districts investigation into Ryan Sulkowskis unauthorized use of a school credit card revealed he not only used public funds to buy alcoholic beverages at a popular Fleming Island restaurant after attending a weight lifting meet last February, but he lied about it to his superiors and conspired with two other coaches who attended the dinner to conceal his drinking as well. After coming clean to district misdeeds, he then lied to The Press and its readers, claiming he the unauthorized credit card use immediately following the incident. The Press learned months later the schools bookkeeper discovered the unauthorized spending, which launched the internal investigation. The coach reimbursed the district for the dinner and two other purchases he made with the school credit card at a local grocery store and gas station, and Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson suspended him without pay for 10 days. However, when news broke about the incident in April, she also backed up Ryan Sulkowskis false statements about informing the bookkeeper of the unauthor ized credit card use before it was discovered. When the school district re vamped its personnel policies re garding the use of district credit cards, the superintendent said the changes were not in response to the coachs illicit spending. reports surfaced that district ad ministrators met with the coach and informed him he would not be rehired for the 2014-15 school year. Still, Mr. Hill and Mrs. deny the meeting took place. Ryan Sulkowskis missteps here did not go unnoticed by CofThe high schools principal said he was aware of the unauthorized credit card use, but he believes the coach learned from his mistake and deserves another chance, according to the report from Manchester Times.M ACCLENNY CITY C OMMISSION Woodlawn Kennels Quality Professional Care ....... . . . . . . ..................

Last week the Florida Department of Educa tion released preliminary graduation rates for districts across the state and Florida as a whole, which posted a 75.6 percent graduation rate, putting Baker County behind the state Principal Thomas Hill said when the graduation data was made public, the high schools rate was reported in error as 68.8 percent, which wouldve been a decline from the previous years rate of 72.8 percent, the highest graduation rate at BCHS in the last decade. Due to a programming error, information sent earlier in the fall was not applied to the BCHS data DOE was willing to re-issue our graduation rate using the correct information. While this new graduation rate is half of a point less than last years rate, it is considerably higher than the previously published 68.8 percent. As in years past, there remains a disparity among black and white students who graduate in Baker County and statewide. The state reported that 70.4 percent of white students received diplomas last year from BCHS while 59.2 percent of blacks students did so. The gap statewide is larger at about 14 percent. The state also released a school-level report schools, including BCHS, in various student categories and overall. tion rate 74.3 percent was higher than any of the single-year rates during the previous 10 years. Among ESE students, the cent and among students on free or reduced lunch it was 61.4 percent. Males also edged out females in the longer-term ishing high school for the boys and 73.5 percent for the girls. The graduation rate is one of the most impor tant indicators for a high school, said Mr. Hill. It is vitally important that the BCHS learning community make strides to improve this rate. Through student advocacy, improved attendance, and increased student engagement, our school will work to ensure that our students are successful both now and in the future. He also expects BCHS to retain its B-grade from the state when new high school grades are released in January, though he said there are too many parameters to be certain. While this new graduation rate is half a point less than last years rate, it is considerably higher than the previously published 68.8%.

The closer it got, the more I wanted to back out because of my fear, said Ms. Hartline, who was the sixth person in line for Dr. Derrick Carters one-day of charity care on December 14. But the fear of the pain is worse than my fear of the dentist, she said while waiting with many others outside the South 8:30 am. Forty-two people in all received treatment throughout the day with some arriving two-anda-half hours before the start of registration, which began about 8 am.

We feel really good with what we could do with only one doctor, Ms. Carter said, adding the free clinic will likely become an annual event for Dr. Carter and his staff. They were joined on Saturday by seven student volunteers from the high schools medical academy. They were invaluable, Ms. Carter said of the students, all juniors at BCHS. They helped keep the rooms clean and set up for the next patient to come in. She said nearly all of the patients reported having toothaches spanning a few weeks to a year or longer, but not having insurance or enough money to seek treatment. Such was Ms. Hartlines situation. Its hard eating, she said. When I eat my teeth hurt so bad. the dentist, not having insurance really makes it hard to get anything done. Mr. Carter estimated the dentist delivered more than $27,000 worth of services during the clinic that lasted until about 4:15 pm.

Don Tate, who uses propane for supplemental heating in his home on Otis Yarborough 100-pound tank last year was $81 when his supplier was Southeast Propane. He said the price charged for this years supply by the New Jersey-based company that bought Southeasts contracts about sev en months ago skyrocketed to $181. Mr. Tate said the new supplier, Suburban Propane Partners, the higher rate of $5.99 per galeast Propane used was closed. The nearest service center is now in St. Augustine. A call to the center Monday showed it was currently unavailable and experiencing high call volumes with wait times of 10 to 20 minutes. Mr. Tate had a similar expe rience when refilling his tank. He said it took three days and dozens of calls before it was delivered. He was doubly shocked when he got the bill. They didnt say anything about laying people off or the humongous price increase, said Mr. Tate. Had he known about the rate hike, he said he would have paid the $50 to $60 in fees to cancel his contract and go with another supplier. The prices of two other propane retailers operating in Bak er County range from $3.79 to cantly lower than the rate Suburban Propane charged Mr. Tate. Both retailers asked not to be The wholesale price of propane has risen about 70 percent since last December, according to oil and commodities broker Liquidity Partners, but that doesnt explain the more-than-doubling of Mr. Tates bill. When asked to explain the drastic increase, Peter Teshima of Suburban Propanes headquarters in Whippany, NJ declined to comment. We dont discuss situations related to customer accounts with the media, said Mr. Teshi ma, adding he would rather put Mr. Tate in touch with a company manager to discuss the matter.

The companys website says it has 4,400 full-time employees and about 1.2 million customers nationwide. Mr. Tate said he wants to warn other Suburban Propane customers of the price hike, particularly those who depend on propane gas during the winter months. A lot of people heat their homes and cook food on propane, said the 18-year Baker County resident. They will walk right into this ... They are goug ing people from one end of the county to the other. He recommends canceling the contract, even it theres a penalty for doing so. Its nothing compared to the difference in price, said Mr. Tate.

After months of back-and-forth negotiations, the with LES on December 12 because members did not feel comfortable enough with what was offered, including the companys demand for a 20-year contract instead of 15 years preferred by New River. The latest proposal from LES, which calls for coner to the Jacksonville Electric Authority, also projected less revenue for New River than was originally Meanwhile, the runner up among four bidders Florida Energy Partners is waiting in the wings to discuss a proposed merger with New River in case the venture with LES falls apart. They were not interested in a 15-year contract, which we wanted, Assistant Director Perry Kent told members of the New River Solid Waste Association board. That (15 year term) would have been a deal breaker for them. LES submitted two proposals, one based on paying New River a guaranteed average annual payment of $133,754 and the other described as a royalBoth have down sides. The guaranteed payment plan would barely be enough to cover New Rivers $130,000 a year, while the royalty plan would be down. Staff had recommended the guaranteed payment proposal, even though its a wash, Mr. Kent said, made. On the other hand, he said, New River is re quired by federal law to collect the gas, so theres a Joel Woolsey, New Rivers consulting engineer, told the board that at least the expense of collecting or well be selling it, said Mr. Woolsey, who in the past has recommended the guaranteed payment plan because its more certain than the riskier royalty route. Basically, its how much risk you want to stomach, he told the board. Youre basically going into business with them (on the royalty plan). Actually, neither proposal is particularly attractive, said Mr. Kent. Its skinny on both of them, he said of the prospect for future income. We were hoping for a lot more money. Its just not out there. The guaranteed payment scenario projects a total of $2,675,087 for New River over 20 years, versus an estimated $3,094,570 over the same time period in royalties. If the board and LES fail to agree on a contract, negotiations could begin with Florida Energy Parta 15-year contract with New River. Under that protimated $8.6 million capital expenditure, or arrange If New River funded the venture entirely, the FEP Rivers projected revenue would drop to $60,338 the In other business, the New River board: the board can review before deciding on a new investment policy and strategy in the future. The move is considered prudent in light of recent poor investment earnings, much of which stems from bonds for Director Darrell ONeal, who was absent from last weeks meeting, and directed that the truck hes been driving be used for other purposes around the ping fee on contaminated soil to $20 a ton if the soil is passable for daily ground cover over refuse, which would save New River money it would not have to spend on clean soil. We dont have any now, but if we can get some it would be cheaper, Mr. Kent said. If its too con taminated we have to bury it. The City of Macclenny accelerated its schedule for choosing a replacement for the late Tom my Johns, who died last month shortly after he was re-elected to a four-year term in the city commissions Group 2 seat. At the same time, the office of Florida Governor Rick Scott has yet to name a replacement for the vacant District 3 Baker County School Board seat formerly held by Jesse Davis, who resigned in October after moving out of the county. Macclenny will accept applications for the commission vacancy through next Monday, and the full board is expected to take between that date and a special meeting December 30 to review its choices. The deadlines were moved forward after city attorney Frank Maloney advised there is a 60day time limit for appointments from the date of vacancy. Macclennys other option would be to hold a special election within 120 days. The replacement will serve until the next regular city election in 2015, then again go on the ballot to fill out the final two years remaining in Mr. Johns term. Before the change in plans City Manager Phil Rhoden said the replacement search would be held in January after a list of criteria was formed with the help of City Commissioner Vernon Ben nett.

JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR email@example.comMacclennys Dickie Ferry was inducted into the Jacksonville Racing Hall of Fame on December 7 to immortalize his success on the track and commemorate his passion for the sport. I was tickled to death, he said about his induction. It was humbling to be honored with it. They have a lot of people I idolized when I was a kid. Ferrys professional career began in September 1971, but his love of racing began long be fore that. He has always been involved in the sport, whether it was racing around the streets as a kid or hanging around the shop with another great Macclenny driver, Steve Moran. He competed across Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia running late models, which is the top model on dirt tracks. He always ran Chevrolets because of the relative lower cost and accessibility of the car parts. One moment he said stood out above all the other accomplishments of his career was the night he was forced to team up with the legendary Harvey Jones during the Sun Belt Series. Ferry said his team didnt have a motor, while Jones didnt have a car, so they paired up with Jones motor in Ferrys car. Ferry said he expected Jones to drive the car that night, but that was not the case. I assumed he was going to drive, Ferry said. He asked me to drive his car and we won it. It was a honor for him to ask me to drive his car. As successful as he was on the track, Ferry said he wouldnt have been able to accomplish everything he did if it wasnt for a team of people supporting him along the way. The key to my racing is ev eryone around here that helped me, he said. A lot of the people helped me out just for the love of racing. Some people locally put a lot of hours into these cars and we would sometimes have to work all night to make it to a race. Whether it was the financial backing of his late father Wally and sponsors or the garage work of people like Mike and Denny Snow, Ferry said it was important to have everyone there to help him run well during races, especially his family. The most important thing was a supporting wife, Ferry said. I sometimes had to miss my kids school functions because of races. I had a good family that supported me during it. Although he has stepped away from being behind the wheel, Ferry continues to be involved in the sport he loves by doing engine work for racers in the area and supporting his son Richard, who has followed in his fathers footsteps and is now on the race circuit.Carolyn Godwin, 67, was a nurses aideCarolyn Mobley Godwin, 67, of Glen St. Mary died on December 15, 2013 at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville.

Several Baker County wrestlers had dominant showings during the meet and were able to pin their opponents in the first round. Cody Miller at 113, Hayden Gaines at 152 and Sean Mulkey at 182 were able to do so. At 220, James Carter also won in the first round by injury default. The first-round victories werent enough as the Commanders were able to squeak out just enough victories to escape with the overall win. There were also several exhibition matches held before the official meet. Miller won by pinfall in the first round of his exhibition match at 113. Tristen Barton also emerged victorious with a first-round pin at 170. In the 135 weight class, Ian Fish pulled out the victory with a pin in the third round. The Wildcats wont return to the mat until January 9 when they travel to battle Episcopal. PHOTO BY JUD JOHNSON Jacob Carter (right) upends his opponent.

The team took its second loss of the season falling 45-38 visiting the Forrest Rebels on December 16. The Wildcats led by one at halftime, but Forrest took control of the game in the third quarter and added to its lead in the fourth. The teams normally high-scoring offense was held in check by the Rebels as Brian Walton had a team-high 12 points. Charles Ruise Jr. was second on the team with 10. It just wasnt our best night of offensive production, said head coach Charles Ruise. We just had a poor free throw shooting night. The loss came two days after the Cats rebounded from their first loss of the season as they cruised to an easy 71-49 home win over the Stanton Blue Devils on December 14 to put their first notch in the win column in district play. The Wildcats never trailed during the game and maintained a steady lead after breaking a 19-19 tie midway through the second quarter. Jesse Gardner scored eight of his 14 points that night in the third quarter, including draining two three pointers, to help the Cats go on a 16-6 run to extend their lead. Gardner also connected with Ruise Jr. on a beautiful alley-oop during the run to help the play maker score two of his teamhigh 16 points. The victory over Stanton was muchneeded as it started the Wildcats off on the right foot in district play and helped them recover from their first loss of the season when they fell 54-42 at Trinity Christian on December 10. The Conquerors took the lead in the first quarter and their defense never allowed the Cats to close the gap. They did a good job defensively, coach Ruise said. They held our key guys well be low their scoring averages. Ruise Jr. led the team with 18 points, while Walton reached double-digits with 11. Now, the team turns its attention to the Florida First Coast Classic Tournament held at BCHS beginning on December 26. The Wildcats open their tournament schedule against the Eagles View Warriors on the first night, and then move on to play the winner of the game between Lee and Crescent City. Coach Ruise said the squad will use the break before the tournament to reevaluate itself offensively heading into the second half of the season. Weve some how gotten away from aggressively attacking on offense and were going to try to utilize that, he said. Thats going to keep us alive in the district tournament and in the second half of the season in district play.

Delicia Washingtons 38 points werent enough for the Lady Cats to avoid their third straight loss when they were blown out 82-52 by the visiting squad from University Christian on December 16. Giveaways and allowing transition baskets plagued the Lady Wildafter two periods. University Christian took control of the game in the third quarter and quickly extended its lead with the help of an 18-3 run during the quarter. They didnt slow down in the fourth quarter and stretched that lead to as much as 33. The lopsided loss came just three days after the Lady Cats were involved in another back-and-forth game against Bradford County that came down to the last minute. This time they were on the wrong side of The Lady Cats held onto a two-point lead when Washington, who kept the team in the game with 30 points, fouled out with 1:39 remaining. The Tornadoes out scored BCHS 8-2 in Washingtons absence, inBradford connected on two free throws to pull within one with 1:07 left in the game. They then stole the ball off the in-bound pass and made the go-ahead basket while getting fouled in the process. The Bradford player drained the free throw for a 50-48 lead with 1:03 remaining. The Tornadoes added another bucket in the closing minute to make it a two-possession ballgame and dash Baker Countys hopes of a comeback. The Lady Cats losing streak began with a 67-53 road loss at West Nassau on December 12. Washington once again had an offensive explosion with 36 points, while Kiala Pigott added 13 points of her own. The girls traveled to Terry Parker on December 17. See next weeks edition for coverage. The team will host Yulee on December 19 in the FSU now has its third Heisman Trophy winner. Jameis Winston became the youngest winner of the trophy in its history and only the second red-shirt freshman winner. Johnny Man ziel won the award as a red-shirt freshman last season and was one of the six finalists this year. Though Winston isnt as dynamic a player as Johnny Football, he does seem to have some thing that all Heisman winners appear to possess ice water in his veins. Winston demonstrated that throughout the season as he came up against adversity and persevered. He destroyed then 4th ranked Clemson and crushed Duke in the ACC final and came back from a two-touchdown deficit to beat Boston College. He seems able to focus despite all the distractions that swirl around him. It doesnt hurt that he happens to have one of the top defenses in the college game serving him up the ball. The truth is that he may be the second most talented player on the Seminole team. Defensive back Lamarcus Joyner is probably an even more gifted athlete than Winston. There was a lot of speculation that he wouldnt get the Heisman nod because of an alleged sexual assault from a year ago. Winston hadnt been questioned or charged by the Tallahassee police and a Leon County prosecutor declined to bring any charges because of lack of evidence. It does cast a shadow on Winston and will follow him throughout his career. But he seems to be able to compartmentalize. Once the whistle blows the off-thefield troubles disappear and he just plays football. Nowadays, with instant me dia, we have a hard time idealizing our sports heroes. We discover early on that they have feet of clay. I imagine that if todays social media scrutiny existed 50 years ago that the glare of the bright lights might have cast some shadows on the Steve Spur riers, Archie Griffins, Earl Camp bells and Marcus Allens. I dont know enough to judge Winston so I will keep my mouth shut and try to concentrate on what I see on the field. And that is a player who performs far be yond his 19 years. DONT Trash It, Sell It.
