904.259.2400 bcpress@nefcom.netCOVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF A Macclenny business owners request to allow the addition of hard liquor to the beer, wine and tobacco products he already is licensed to sell was unanimously denied by the citys Zoning Adjustment Board during a meeting on the afternoon of February 3. The decision means that anyone wanting to buy a togo bottle of whisky, bourbon, scotch, gin or vodka in Macclenny will have to go to one of the three existing package stores: Walmart Super Centers on SR 228, Baker Beverage on West Macclenny Avenue or its neighbor two doors down to the west, Macs Liquors. Macs functions as a bar and package store. Ghandi Ayoub, who opened his Smoker Friendly store at 101 S. 6th St. a year ago, told the zoning board that he had received preliminary approval from the state Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco to buy a liquor license and that he was ready to make the change immediately. After a brief public hearing, however, the three board members said they could envision nothing positive com ing from allowing a fourth package store in town. Ive received one phone call and talked to a lady at the post ing variance), board chairman Bob Lambright said. The opinions are negative Board members Naomi Roberson and Lynward Bones, the newest member just appointed last month, also said they had each received one letter from a resident opposed to Mr. Ayoubs request. With Macs Liquors only a block away and people making the news in The Baker County Press every week for alcoholrelated arrests, such as drunken driving and domestic violence, Mr. Bones said he could not support the request. Im just looking out for the well being of the community, he said. Mr. Ayoub didnt deny that some people drink too much and get into trouble. But drink ing, in and of itself, is not against the law, he said. I know smoking and drink ing are bad habits, but they are legal, he said. He also claimed that according to his research and calculations his discounted prices had saved his customers over $120,000 in the year hes been in business. He said the savings would continue if he were allowed to sell liquor. Its all about saving money. No more, no less, said Mr. Ayoub, who said he also owns similar businesses in Jacksonville. After Mr. Lambright, who opened the meeting with a Christian prayer seeking guidance to do the Lords will, had a couple of times Mr. Ayoub told the board that Andrew is my Baptism name. Nonetheless, board members made it clear from the outset that in their collective opinion another liquor store in Macclenny would not be nity. Their vote denied Mr. Ayoubs application for a special exception to change his business status from a convenience store to a package store. The application states that special exceptions will not be detrimental to or endanger the public health, safety or general welfare Only one person in the audience rose to address the issue.

Michael Seth Hodges, 24, of Glen St. Mary pleaded no contest to dealing in stolen property, possession of a a convicted felon and two counts of burglary sentence of eight and one-half years, less nearly 1800 days already served since his arrest and for an earlier felony. He and John Paul Mann Jr., 44, of Sanderson were arrested last summer for theft of tools, a boat and trailer, an ATV and other property from the camp. Sheriffs investigators were tipped off by one of the victims who was aware that Mr. Mann was overheard boasting about the heist. Mr. Mann was sentenced last week to 30 months less time served. The state dropped the weapon possession count and he pleaded to twin counts of dealing in stolen property and resisting arrest without violence. Mr. Manns son, John Adam Mann, is on probation for his role in the crime after against his girlfriend Amanda Weichman, though she was recently arrested for burglary and theft.

Chamber of Commerce staff organized the event, namely Barbara Blackshear and Brandi Jenkins, said Chamber director Darryl Register. He said 24 vendors signed up for the womens bazar but two were no shows. A few more were turned away due to space constraints. The event was well attended by all accounts.

Van Buren was the eighth president of these United States and hailed from Kinderhook, New York.

Wilson was drafted in 2011 by the Colorado Rockies but chose football instead of a promising baseball career. But he loves baseball and spends the spring working out with the Rangers and playing in some games.

LIKE US ONFA CEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSIONF avorite Super Bowl ads?The Super Bowl wasnt nearly as entertaining as some of the commercials between the plays, so we turned to Face book to ask readers about their favorite commercials from the big game. Heres a look at the responses: Rusty Dalessio: Denitely has to be the Budweiser puppy! Vickie Wiest Thick: Doritos, the little girl riding the dog! Terri Hicks Wilds: Bud puppy. Kassidy April Gagnon: Budweiser with Lt. Nadd coming home from Af ghanistan. Debbie Dorman, Nina Carr, Elizabeth Barber, Tammy Crawford McFarland: The Budweiser puppy!

Tebow doing TV because no one wants him, lol.How will you vote on medical pot?With the Florida Supreme Court upholding ballot language for a constitutional amendment opening the state to marijuana use for medical reasons, we asked our Facebook faithful to like our post if they intend to vote for the initiative or comment as to why they wouldnt vote in favor. Heres some of the responses we saw (the post had 80 likes, too): Robert Brookens: I have been reading comments all across the internet for and against medical marijuana. Michelle Williams Wartluft: I have never heard of someone found dead because of a marijuana overdose. Clinton Sparkman: I will not be voting yes on this. Like all other medical pain medication, people will use it when it is not needed. Then it will lead to using other drugs, that is why they call it the gateway drug. There are enough pain medications out there. Use them. Ashli Hunter: Only thing pot is a gateway to is the fridge or the closest drive-thru. It has been proven that it helps seizures, cancer patients and many other diseases/illnesses. Theres no chance of addiction like there is with pills. Melinda Duran: Actually, Im all for it. I personally have seen what it can do for someone living with cancer. It helped with the nausea, the feeling of being so lethargic from the chemo and or radiation. Lets not all judge until we walk in others shoes or go through their pain. Christopher Apromollo: I knew our town was pretty full of close minded people but I never really thought they would reject medical and scientific facts. They arent saying if you stub your toe, you can go burn down a pound of some kush. Its going to be a little bit more controlled. I still cant understand why people are so concerned with decisions that will in no way ever aect them. James Jibbers Rigney: How many kids get drunk and drive in the back woods and wreck there car and kill them selves or their friends? And how many kids get high and hit the fridge up for food then pass out and wake up the next day. Get in on the Facebook discussion by searching for The Baker County Press and liking our page.

MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERR OBERT GERARD LETTER TO THE EDITOR IMPRESS I ONSJim M cG auley board to reject the application. Dr. Futch, who said she bought her business in 2002, noted that the city has begun sprucing up downtown with new street lamps and landscaping to help attract new businesses. She further noted recent good news about a possible bypass route that could provide truckers a more direct road from US 90 to I-10 just east of town. Approving a new liquor store, she said, would not be in keeping with the changes Im seeing in the downtown area, which she said should concentrate on businesses catering to families. With all due respect, Mr. Ayoub said when he was allowed to address Mrs. age store) would make downtown worse or better. I dont know what the connection is between tractor-trailers and a liquor store. Less than 10 minutes after the hearing began the application was unanimously rejected. But during a conversation out side the board room Mr. Ayoub said he was prepared to take his plea to the next highest level, which would be an appeal to the city commission. His ultimate back-up plan is a lawsuit. Mr. Ayoub said he already has consulted a lawyer in Starke about representing him in a legal action against the city if it comes to that. Mr. Ayoub said he probably could have the board meeting with him to support his zoning application. But nobody told him that might be helpful, he said. After this weeks board meeting, Mrs. Roberson was asked if a room full of supporters for Mr. Ayoub would have carried more weight with her than the one letter she said she had received in opposition. I cant said it wouldnt have, she said. Asked the same question, Mr. Lambright said the outcome might have been different if we had voters from the city in mass numbers supporting the special exception request. Today Baker County has 54 alcohol beverage licenses, according to a list of licensees from the Division of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms dated July 3, 2013. At that time, seven businesses are licensed to sell beer, wine and liquor by the package or on premise, while three had package sales-only licenses. In other business, the Zoning Adjustment Board: ance from American Enterprise Bank to place a new sign 5 feet from the right-ofway in front of the bank at 839 S. 5th St. Ordinarily, the minimum setback requirement for signs are 10 feet. The hardship in this case is visibility because of utility poles, Mike Walker, the citys zoning coordinator, explained before the vote. Theres no adverse impact to anyones safety. Bank president Jamie Hodges said complying with the existing 10-foot setback restriction would cause the sign to be partially obscured by Florida Power & Light Co. cement utility poles. Were trying to maximize the visibility along that corridor because FP&L power poles blocks the view, he said. F rom page 1 F rom page 1Nixes zoning for fourth liquor store...Prison terms for August burlgaryDear Editor: As a former patient and resident, I would like to say congratulations to everyone at Macclenny Nursing and Rehab Center. Achieving the rating they did is not easy, but I saw how hard they work and how dedicated and devoted they are everyday. The City of Macclenny and Baker County should be very proud to have Macclenny Nursing and Rehab among the top of the class in the state of Florida. I am very proud to know them and they are wonderful people.Michael Rowe SandersonThe Macclenny City Commission should give serious consideration to reversing a decision by its Zoning and Adjustment Board this week de nying an exception for package liquor sales at the Smoker Friendly store on South 6th St. adjacent to the CSX tracks. The zoning body, a volunteer group, essentially said its decision was rooted in a handcomments in the days lead ing up to the public hearing. When asked if the petitioner Ghandi Ayoub would have, as he indicated he could have, people in favor of liquor sales, board members hinted that could have swayed them the other way. The boards newest member was a bit more substantive. Theres plenty of alcoholfueled misbehavior in Baker County as witnessed by crime reports weekly in the news paper, he argued, so why add to the locations people can buy booze? Fair enough, but no one has any evidence that doing so will balloon the number of sots beating their wives and girlfriends, or those get ting into weekend brawls with neighbors. More likely, zoning board and religious-based taboos on consumption of alcohol, and theres no objection to that. Its a bit awkward, after all, rationalizing with friends and fellow church members of like mind why one voted to allow another liquor outlet when one disapproves of it. From the petitioners side, however, its a matter of expanding a private business to tobacco, generously taxed by the government) amid the absence of any statutory prohibition against it. One suspects that Mr. Ayoub and the lawyer he indicated would be representing his interests will argue just that if the city turns down his request. Anytime an issue with the word alcohol attached to it comes before local governing boards the scenario is pretty much the same. Recall in early 2008 when the matter of Sunday alcohol sales in restaurants came before the city board at the behest of the then-city manager. Local ministers mysteriously had adequate notice the matter was on the city agenda, unlike the general public, because the discussion didnt center around a zoning change like this weeks case. The commission froze. Agreeing that Sunday liage stores and bars were not part of the discussion) somehow unraveled Baker Countys moral fabric and Christian you say Moonshine?), the board said no dice. Many suggested then that when Sunday restaurant sales are tied to an interstate-based development with generous clenny and the county, things will be a bit different. When the decision was purely theo retical, like in 2008, there was little impetus to view it as eco nomic rather than religious. Not so in this case. We have a taxpaying business entity seeking to expand its revenue base by adding a legal product to its inventory. There exists no statutory reason to deny that request, and the city runs a real risk of coming out on the short end of any measure by the petitioner to force its hand via a lawsuit. At our expense, of course. It seems clear the direction Macclenny should take on this issue.City should reverse liquor sale ruling Interesting bits of informationMN&R rating was not easy As simple as an e-mail.....If you have any information you think we need to know, send it to:editor@bakercountypress.comT B C P 104 South Fifth St. 904-259-2400


ursday, February 6, 2014 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, February 6, 2014JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comCounty authorities are seeking any information the public may have about the owner or origin of a young dog found bound and abandoned in a watery ditch in subfreezing tem peratures overnight January 25-26. Deputy Jeremiah Combs responded to an area of Reid Stafford Road near CR 229 to find the 6-pound male poodle mix inside a soiled garbage bag closed around the dogs neck. As I began ripping the bag off the puppy I was overtaken by the smell of ammonia from where the puppy had urinated and defecated inside of the bag leading me to believe the puppy had been in the bag overnight in 20-degree weather, the officer wrote in his informational report. A veterinary examination revealed the dog, about a year old, sustained severe dehydration, hypothermia and a previous hip fracture that was never treated. How that dog didnt die, I dont know, said county ani mal control director Georgia Monfort, who met Deputy Combs to take possession of the animal. I had him wrapped in a quilt and it was like holding onto a jack hammer. Thats the height of cruelty, she said. Mrs. Monfort said she hopes publicizing the case will help officials track down the dogs origin. Perhaps someone will recognize the now cleaned up and energetic pup, she said. The poodle mix, perhaps with Pomeranian or Maltese breeds, is not up for adoption yet, because should authorities charge a suspect in the case it serves as evidence. Mrs. Monfort said there have been prospective adopters interested in giving the dog a forever home. Hes a happy little guy, she said. The animal control director said all too often irresponsible or abusive dog owners will abandon their animals, many times without food, wa ter or shelter. Mrs. Monfort esanimals that come through the countys animal shelter on Steel Bridge Road were discarded in some fashion. Anyone interested in helping out with the dogs medical expenses should contact Dr. Joe Harrisons office at 259He looks pretty spiffy now, said Mrs. Monfort. Hes very, very sweet and doesnt like to be without company. UNEXPECTED BILLS? Signature Loans*Application fee applies.See a Member Service representative today!

Mayor Juanice Padgett scheduled a hearing the evening of January 21 at the behest of Councilman Steve Rhynehardt, who initially sought the exception to place a mobile home on his property in northwest Glen to house his mother-in-law. No one was present to comment during the public hearing portion of that regular council meeting, but when it was brought up as an agenda item minutes later, the mayor I will not vote for another mobile home in Glen, she de clared, repeating a sentiment she has expressed in the past. Im concerned with starting a precedent here. She pointed out that Glen does not have a hardship provision in its zoning ordinance to allow mobile homes onto property on a temporary basis for ill relatives or depen dants. Such a law calls for removal of the units within 90 days of when they are vacated and does not allow occupancy by non-hardship residents. Councilman Rhynehardt then indicated he learned after initiating the zoning request that the residence was assembled on-site atop a foundation, and Councilman Dicky Foster agreed the modular units are considered permanent structures and cannot be moved. Town attorney Joel Foreman agreed the distinction means the petitioner does not need a zoning exception and the town agreed to refund him $148, which represents the bors and publishing the hearing notice in The Press Eight store clerks were issued citations during a threehour period the afternoon of January 31 charging them with selling alcohol to a minor sent into the stores by the sheriffs department.

The victim then told Deputy Christopher Walker that her stepfather, Hector Paul, became angry when she returned home late from school. She said the 43-year-old man allegedly yelled and cussed at her before he grabbed her by the upper neck area near the ears and pushed her toward a back door, which caused her to fall down. The suspect then pushed her out the back door when she got up, following her into the backyard where he continued to yell and curse, telling her she was trespassing. The victims mother yelled Paul returned inside. The suspect admitted to he struck his stepdaughter in the upper arm and may have grabbed her around the neck, Deputy Walkers report indihe did push the victim into the backyard, however. Mr. Paul was arrested and Deputy Walker contacted the Florida Department of Children and Families due to the victim being a juvenile and the presence of another small juvenile in the home.

ursday, February 6, 2014 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, February 6, 2014JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comMore than a dozen area residents got an in-depth look at safe sleeping practices for young children as well as a crash course in first-aid, CPR and the benefits of breast feeding at the health department last week. The two-hour training, dubbed Ready, Set, Sleep! and sponsored by Kohls department store, was presented by Wolfson Childrens Hospital on January 31. It was attended by men and women ranging in age from teens to those in middle age, and some of them were parents themselves. In return for their participation, attendees received free portable cribs and other safe sleep materials. The cribs are certified safe for children and cost about $50 each. All of the recommendations shared dur ing the class were based on practices en dorsed by the American Society of Pediatrics. The program is funded by a roughly $83,000 grant from Kohls and began last October in Jacksonville, said Wolfson prevention coordinator and registered nurse Cynthia Dennis. Now its spreading to other counties in the region, with Baker County being the first. There are plans to expand the program to Clay, St. Johns and Nassau counties as well. In recent years a large proportion of infant deaths, defined as those that occur before a child reaches 1-year-old, in Baker County have been classified by public health officials as sleep-related deaths, including those labeled as SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, deaths. The three-year infant mortality rate here for 2010-12 was 11.6 per 100,000 live births, or nearly twice the states rate of 6.3 for the same period, Florida Department of Health data shows. Health officials believe they can put downward pressure on those statistics by spreading information about the safest ways for babies to sleep, given thats how babies spend most of their time. Newborns sleep as She had several recommendations: baby. Called co-sleeping, this practice in creases the risk of babies getting injured by an adult sleeping nearby or by becoming trapped in the bedding, which can lead to suffocation because infants are not strong enough to escape. Rather, for the first six months of life, babies should remain in the same room with parents, but inside a crib. nile Products Manufacturers Association) or recommended by the Consumer Products be placed away from lamps, windows, cur tains, binds or anything heavy that could fall and strike the baby. are strong enough to turn over, you dont have to reposition them, but always start them on their backs. When children are awake and active, its important to give them time on their stomachs to help strengthen neck and arm muscles. Getting plenty of tummy time also helps newborns avoid developing a condition called flat head, in which the back of the head is flattened instead of round. additional layer of clothing when sleeping and never cover their face or head.First aid recommendationsDuring the infant and child first aid portion of the class, attendees were given stepby-step demonstrations on how to react when children arent breathing or become unresponsive. Wolfsons Alisha Pennington said quick action is critical to the babys survival and limiting brain damage. She said once the heart stops beating, its very difficult to re vive them so we have to act fast. When an infant becomes unresponsive, CPR should begin immediately, even before calling 9-1-1, Ms. Pennington said. If some one else is around to call, tell them to do so, but dont delay the CPR. She explained that with infants, chest compressions should be done with two fin gers on the sternum or breast bone just be low the nipple line. After 30 compressions, you should breath twice for the baby by covering its nose and mouth and breathing into them enough so the chest rises as if the baby was breathing on its own. If the child remains unresponsive, do another cycle of compressions and breaths. After two minutes of CPR, caregivers should stop to call 9-1-1 if nobody else already has. In instances in which an infant is choking, another technique is recommended. Ms. Pennington showed attendees how to hold the baby face down while supporting the head and neck with one hand along the jawbone and using the forearm to angle the baby so the head is lower than the legs. Then, with the free hand, you should strike the babys back five times in between the shoulder blades to dislodge whatever is choking the child. Then flip the child over and give five chest compressions, she said, and continue repeating both steps until the infant can breath again. Between cycles, you should check for anything visible in the airway that could be removed easily. Should the baby go limp, begin CPR compressions and breathing, and dont stop until help arrives, said Ms. Pennington. Coughing is not choking, she warned, as coughing is the bodys natural response to something stuck in the airway. Only intervene if you dont hear a sound anymore or their face is changing colors.Benets of breast feedingLast weeks class also featured a section on the benefits of breast milk over formula. Ms. Dennis said research shows that both mothers and babies are healthier when moms breast feed. While many new mothers will do so initially after birth, getting them to continue the practice can be difficult. Lots of moms start and hit trouble along the way and dont get support and they stop, said Ms. Dennis. So what we need to work on is sticking with it. Pediatricians recommend breast feeding for at least the first year of life and using only breast milk for the first six months be fore gradually introducing more solid foods over time after that. Ms. Dennis called breast milk the gold standard, adding that formula lacks many of the essential nutrients and health benefits of the real thing. Its just not the same substance at all, she said. Breast feeding boosts the mothers im mune system to fight infections and burns about 500 calories a day. Meanwhile, breast fed babies are less likely to have allergies, leukemia, diabetes, childhood obesity and heart disease. Plus, Ms. Dennis said, its inexpensive, conve nient and helps build a bond between mother and child. The longer you breast feed your baby, the better the benefit, she said. And always ask for support or help if you need it. In Baker County, women in need of breast feeding support should contact the Macclenny WIC office at 259-3233. The of fice hosts breast feeding classes on Thursdays at 3 pm and a monthly support group on the first Friday of the month at 10 am.

And now the food truck movement has made its way to Macclenny. Shark Bites Cajun Cooking, LLC is the sole food truck operating in the city. Its only been open for business for about two months, said owner and operator Brian Eddie Weeks, who retired from the state prison system and invested of his pension in a food truck. Cajun cooking has a bit of a bite to it so we thought [the name] fit well, said the husband and father of two while flushing the water from his food truck at the City Park on West Boulevard the afternoon of February 1. I got a pretty good deal on the truck, he added. $3000. He and a friend painted the rather elaborate art work on the truck using a beach and island theme. M&R Specialty Trailers of Macclenny performed a chunk of the work required to turn the delivery truck into a mobile kitchen. I probably did about 60 percent of the work inside myself, said Mr. Weeks, 42, of Macclenny. His cuisine is inspired by the fare in Louisiana, one of Mr. Weeks favorite places to visit. Mines not quite as hot as theirs, he said. Some of Shark Bites specialities: sausage dogs, andouille, sausage dirty rice, cajun corn dipped in chocolate and frozen) for dessert. Its started off slow but ev eryone loves my cooking. I get a lot of repeat customers, said Mr. Weeks. Hes still trying to find the best times to serve customers, however. Mr. Weeks is not seeing a lot of lunch time business at his current location on the west side of Baker Beverage on West Macclenny Avenue. But he also attends public events outside Baker County to find customers. M&R Specialty Trailers moved to Macclenny from the west side of Jacksonville in 2012, just as the food truck movement was gaining steam regionally. Seeing them there, in Daytona Beach and big metro areas around the country inspired Mr. Weeks to try his hand at the venture last fall. Food trucks, though popular with the public, have not been welcomed everywhere. Owners of traditional brick-and-mortor restaurants in the Jacksonville beaches communities have resisted the presence of food trucks there because they dont pay property taxes and avoid other costs associated with traditional eateries. Nonetheless, the Jackson ville Beach city council voted 4-1 this week to lift the citys ban on food trucks there for one year and begin regulating them in a pilot program. Baker County has no such ban on food trucks. All Mr. Weeks needed was a business permit from the City of Macclenny as well as state business and health licenses.Purchase this photo at Photo by Joel AddingtonFood truck owner Brian Eddie Weeks last weekend in Macclenny.Purchase this photo at Photo by Joel AddingtonMr. Weeks shows o his cajun corn bread.Cajun food on wheelsFood trucks back in the areaTebowFusionBob Tebow of Jacksonville tured speaker at the TebowFusion event the evening of Church of Glen St. Mary.

Hollies are nice, low-maintenance plants for Florida, many of which have attractive berries that feed birds and brighten our fall and winter days. There are also many spe cies to choose from, with a va riety of sizes, shapes and textures to please the eye. Here are a few interesting varieties: Ilex opaca American Holly is a medium-large, conical to columnar tree that slow ly reaches 25-50 feet tall. This tree provides the classic holly look with spiny green leaves and clusters of red berries. available. Ilex cassine Dahoon Holly is a medium sized tree reaching 40 feet tall, although typically 20-30 feet with an 8to 15-foot crown. Glossy oblong leaves have margins that are either smooth or have several tiny teeth near the tip. Bright red berries ripen in late fall and persist through winter. Native to swamps and low hammocks, this tree is perfect for landscapes with poor drainage. Ilex x attenuata East Palatka East Palatka Holly is a medium sized tree that grows 30 feet. It has a pyramidal shape, bright red berries, and rounded green leaves with just one spine at the tip. Ilex vomitoria Pendula Weeping Yaupon holly is a small, upright tree with a nice weeping habit that grows 15 feet tall. It has small gray green leaves that lack spines, and red berries.

It is a small tree, growing to 20 feet tall, with pretty white on hairy stalks and bloom in the spring, followed by bright red-orange berries that ripen in fall and persist until winter. Callicarpa americana American Beautyberry is a fast growing, native shrub having a loose shape and reaching 3-8 feet tall and wide. The branches form almost a weeping habit as they grow older. Fuzzy, coarse light green leaves provide a nice backdrop for the that bloom from June to August.

STEVE M ARFONGELL ABAKER C OUNTY FIRE CH IEF A storm breaks out unexpectedly in Baker County. Lightning causes a home to catch fire. Cars crash in the blinding rain. People of all ages call for help. What would happen if no one answered the call? Who would re spond to protect the lives and property of the community? Who would be there to help? Every day in our community, the Baker County Fire Department answers the call of our families, friends and neighbors who are in need of assistance. From car accidents to heart attacks, from house fires to technical rescues, the volunteers are there to protect lives and property. Baker County Fire Department emergency responders are a spe cial type of people, with many different reasons for answering the call of duty. Some like the challenges and the adrenaline rush, while others like to sharpen their emergency skills and techniques. Every one of them answers the call so that they can help someone in need. Todays emergency responders do far more than put out fires or bandage wounds. We are the first line of defense in natural and manmade disasters. We respond to vehicle accidents, hazardous materi als incidents, specialized rescue situations and a vast array of medical emergencies. In response to the growing need for new volunteers, the Baker County Fire Department has initiated a recruitment campaign for interested citizens to learn how to answer the call and serve their community. Please contact steve.marfongella@ or stop by one of the stations if you see the bay doors open and speak with one of our members. Becoming a volunteer emergency responder can be the most re warding experience of your life, and allows you to reach out to some one in need. Together with the Baker County Fire Department you can ensure that there is always someone to answer the call.More volunteers needed for BCFDBenet at Moose Lodge Macclenny Moose Lodge this Saturday, February 8 starting at noon for Kristi Stokes, who has leukemia.

But being the district playoff berth in 14 years, too. The Lady Cats had a tough time adjusting to the different looks Bishop Kennys defense was running early in the game. quarter turnovers and fell behind by 11 points at the end of the quarter after a 15-0 Bishop Kenny run. The Lady Crusad ers defense took the Lady Cats by surprise, head coach Chris Chisholm said. They boxed us in and trapped us at half court, which played, he said. We werent looking for it when we were get ting ready for the game. The girls took better control of the ball and began to settle in during the second quarter, but dent into Bishop Kennys lead. The Lady Crusaders made the most of their open three-point opportunities and drained three in the second quarter to keep the Lady Cats at bay. Although the girls kept the turnovers to a minimum after the opening quarter, they couldnt get into a rhythm offensively outside of Delicia Washington. She scored all 25 Washingtons high-scoring effort kept the team alive for a shot at making a comeback entering the fourth quarter, but the Lady Crusaders controlled the clock and held off the Lady Cats to seal the win. Even with the loss, the Lady off berth in more than a decade. They will travel to play the District 4-5A champion Palatka Lady Panthers on February 6. Coach Chisholm said the late season surge should give his team momentum entering the playoffs, despite the loss in the championship game. I feel pretty good about our chances and I think we might match up pretty well, he said. Just making the playoffs is a big accomplishment because you dont have to go home just yet. We get to play an extra game and extend our season, which is always a good thing. If they are able to beat Palatka, the Lady Cats will advance to play the winner of the game between Bishop Kenny and Ponte Vedra.Coach: They just wanted it moreTo make the District 3-5A title game, the girls overcame an to upset Paxon 50-48 in front of a home crowd on January 29. It was one of the most excit ing games Ive ever coached, coach Chisolm said. They chipped away and played really well together. They just wanted it more. The teams offense finally found its rhythm in the fourth quarter after struggling three frames. Kiala Pigotts steal and score jump started the offense and the Lady Cats went on a 13-1 scoring run soon after to take a 42-41 lead. Paxon responded with a basket to regain a onepoint advantage, but Washington answered back with a three-pointer on Baker Countys next possession to give the team the lead for good. The Lady Golden Eagles had a chance to tie the game from the free-throw line with less but the shooter missed both free throws to close out the in credible comeback win for the Lady Cats. Washington took the game game. since returning from Christmas break and won six straight games before falling to Bishop Kenny. The head coach said he is proud of his team as they prepare for upcoming playoff game. Its just an awesome feeling, Coach Chisolm said. There is so much excitement from the community and the school.

That play encapsulated the entire 59 minutes, 48 seconds to come. This years Super Bowl is in the books and unless you are a Seahawks fan, its one youd rather forget. The Seahawks chalked up the second largest rout in Super Bowl history with their 43-8 dissection of the Broncos. Ive seen every Super Bowl and it was like watching all four of my Buffalo Bills appearances in the big game all rolled into one. Going into the game I really didnt care who won. I like the Seahawks and I like the Bron cos. Id predicted a Seahawk win because they have the best defense in the league, but you can never count out Peyton Manning. Well almost never. All the planets must have been aligned on Sunday night. Manning couldnt hit a receiver. He was smothered by the Seahawk pass rush. Rusquarterback who looked tentative against San Francisco in the NFC Championship, was really on his game. The Bron cos couldnt run the ball. The crowd was very pro-Seattle and pretended they were the super-loud Seattle fans, providing more noise than almost any Super Bowl I can remember. All the highlights were from the Hawks. Their underrated receiving corps stepped up in a big way and their defense proved again and again that they werent over-rated. Richard Sherman, the cornerback who ranted on camera after the NFC Championship, was just as smothering at corner. Going into the game, only three passes had been thrown in his direction during the playoffs. By halftime I was ready to tune in to Downton Abbey Usually, when the game is bad I can settle in and watch the commercials, but they werent up to par, despite the $4 million price tag for 30 sec onds. Audis big-headed dog Tebow, the Budweiser soldier, Bob Dylans American made and the Dale call were the highlights.JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Wildcat tennis team will year head coach Jonathan Barrett when its season gets underway February 6 with a home match against Bishop Snyder. Coach Barrett will be taking over the role from former coach Chris Armoreda, who left the school at the end of the 201213 school year to teach English overseas. The new coach said coaching the team has far exceeded his expectations so far. We have a great group that has already shown dedication by coming out and giving me 110 percent every practice, even in the less than ideal weather conditions, coach Barrett said via e-mail. The administration, athletic director and parents have already shown a lot of support for the tennis program and have been very helpful in welcoming me in as head coach. The boys team consists of Evan Barrett, Jarrett Barton, Tyler Brown, Logan Campbell, Tyler Curry, Brach Dukeman, Jonathan Kirkland and Jared Stafford. The Lady Cats will be made up of Andrea Clark, Emily Johnson, Tristan Lauramore and Kate Whitehead. The eight boys and four girls that make up this years teams were chosen based on their commitment, skill and sportsmanship. Coach Barrett is conthey prepare for the upcoming season. Practices have been going great, he said. The team is working well together. As I stated earlier, we have a great group that I expect to excel this match this Thursday at home against Bishop Snyder.

The teams seniors capped beat down of the Baldwin Indians on Senior Night on February 1. The squad started five seniors in place of its usual starting lineup to honor the soonto-be departing players and got some solid production from the group. Senior Adrian Robinson, who missed most of the season with a broken hand, was a force down low and tied Brian Walton for a team-high 11-points. Robinsons presence in the low post will only improve the Cats as the team prepares itself for a playoff run, head coach Charles Ruise said. We definitely welcome that, he said of Robinsons play. We have some things in place for him. He has the size, and one thing you cant really coach is size. The seniors played the mathe usual rotation began getThe Cats offense found its rhythm in the second quarter with the regular lineup and went on a 15-3 run to pull away from the Indians. CeCe Jefferson, who missed the previous weeks game between the two teams because of football honors, had a solid game as he netted eight points and six rebounds, including two dunks during the second-quarter run. The Cats went on another scoring run in the third quarter to extend their lead to almost 30 entering the fourth quarter. the game was the biggest of the night as the reserve players received an opportunity to play during the closing frame. The team started its final week of regular season play with a close 60-53 victory at Yulee on January 28 to extend its winning streak to 13 games. Jefferson, Brandon Lewis and Charles Ruise Jr. all tied for a team-high 14 points, while Walton added 12. Suwannee handed the Wildcember 16 when they beat the visiting Baker County team scored 28 and Jesse Gardner added 14, but it wasnt enough for the squad to keep from having its winning streak snapped. Now with the regular season in the rearview mirror, the Cats will turn their attention to the District 3-5A tournament, which is being held in Baker County. Their quest to win the district title and earn a home playoff game will get underway on February 5 when they host the Paxon Golden Eagles, who beat for the opportunity to play the Wildcats. The teams played once during the season with Baker County topping the Golden Eatop-seeded team as it enters the tournament. We feel pretty good, coach Ruise said. We made some pected to have.

Holton, the 2013 Florida Athletic Coachs Association Class 5A Offensive Player of the Year, had an explosive night from the plate with her two solo home runs and connecting on a two-RBI double in the fourth inning. Lady Cats a 1-0 first-inning lead, while her fourth-inning double came in the middle of a up 10-0. The Lady Cats got two more two-run home runs by Branda Jarvis in the second inning and Hayleigh Mulkey in the fourth, the latter of which drove in the the game. While the squads bats were hot throughout the game, Mackenzie Winguard put forth a nearly perfect effort from the mound. She allowed just one hit and recorded nine strike outs in the shortened game, including batter to seal the Lady inning. The JV Lady Wildcats also had great showing and defeated First to the varsity game.
