A T'.:.ani JL'.%loper vows to "do
things the right way" in a proposed
5845 acre mix of residential, com-
mercial and recreational uses in
northern Baker County.
"We are in the very embryonic
stages, and wanted to speak to
county officials for input,'" attorney
Ryan Bailine explained in a tele-
phone interview January 11.
He and officials of Adar Devel-
opers LLP of Miami met the day
before with representatives of most
county offices including the school
district and the Northeast Florida
Regional Planning Council.
Adar's plans will trigger a devel-
opment of regional impact study
(DRI) for a development that is
supposed to encompass homes,
three schools, two golf courses, a
large lake, possibly some govern-
ment offices like substations for the
sheriff, fire, rescue and road depart-

up to 15,000 homes-on land it is
still in the process of purchasing
from the Curtis family of Gaines-
ville. The development does not yet
have a name.
The property lies west of Ode
Yarbrough Road, across CR 125
from the Curtises' Glen Plantation
development, a series of a dozen
subdivisions of varying sizes on
950 acres already slated for nearly
The Adar development will re-
quire water and sewer for'lie den-
sity planned, but the preliminary
details presented do not indicate
whether it will build its own plants
or seek connection to new facilities
planned for the new St. Mary's
Shoals Park nearby,
The latter would require much
larger plants than currently consid-
ered, but the county has already
contemplated larger facilities to en-
courage residential and commercial
growth in the area.
"We want to meet the county's
needs and demands, not just build
homes so people can drive to Jack-
sonville to work and shop. It's go-
ing to take time and money-and it's
not going to be fast-tracked. We're
going to do it right," promised Mr.
Bailine of the Miami law firm
Shutts and Bowen.
The initial plan is for 625 homes
on 3645 acres, but another 2200
acres between US 90 and CR 127
S will be added. Much of that acre-
age is wetlands unsuitable for con-
struction but can be used for nature

A year ago when Kara Raulerson
looked out of her window, she saw
the familiar slash pines and long
vistas of Baker County.
Today, when she opens the cur-
tains in her room, what greets her
are towering mountains, dense jun-
gle rainforest, and not far down the
road, Inca ruins.
In all respects, Honduras is as far
from the familiar landscape of Bak-
er County as a first year teacher can
get. But there are similarities that
comfort Kara despite being 2000
miles from home. The warmth and
friendliness of the people make her
feel right at home.

Rezoning for Macclenny's first

Mr. Combs produced a drawing
of two stucco buildings, but said
they may actually be brick, depend-
ing on which material is favored by
owners who build conventional
homes in the subdivision.
The absence of protesting neigh-
bors was a big factor in the com-
mission's approval of the rezoning,

"I fell in
love with the
an society, people, their
culture and their openness," said
Raulerson. "I knew God was lead-
ing me back there."
As she neared graduation, she
wasn't quite sure how to approach
getting a job teaching in Honduras,
so she went to the Internet. She
hadn't surfed the net for more than
a few minutes when she discovered
a school in the capital that needed
an English teacher right away.
"I e-mailed them and basically
had a job the same day," Raulerson
Though she spoke some Spanish,
she was assured these students were
fluent in English, and when she got
there she discovered why. She was
teaching the upper crust of Hon-
duran society. These were students
who were chauffeured to school
and had bodyguards. Most of her
students come from rich and pow-
erful families in the capital.
"I have one student whose father
will probably be the next president
of Honduras. These are students
who will go away to college in the
US and in Europe."
Ms. Raulerson teaches a mixed
curriculum. For the most part, it
would be very recognizable to
American students, but it als6 has a
large dose of Honduran culture.
There are not many famous Hon-
duran writers, however, so Rauler-
son is content to teach Fitzgerald,
Steinbeck and other major Ameri-
can and European authors.
Despite not having a language
barrier, it was evident immediately
that she was in a foreign country.
Though there is wealth, there is also,
tremendous poverty. A large por-
tion of the country lives in abject
poverty and what we spend on
Christmas presents is double or
triple what they make for the entire
year. Many of the poor live in bar-
rios, neighborhoods without elec-
tricity or running water.
Raulerson noticed quickly that
her students had very little to do
with the common people. "They
warned me to stay out of certain ar-
eas and couldn't believe that I
would even want to go there."

"In the absence of adequate in-
ternal controls, the district has lim-
ited assurance that student fees are
properly assessed, collected and
timely deposited," the Auditor
It was, however, the only "re-
portable condition" turned up by
the annual audit.
Superintendent Paula Barton
and fiscal officer Marcelle Rich-
ardson characterized the audit re-
spectively as "outstanding" and
"very good" at the January 3
school board meeting.
Ms. Barton, who has been in of-
fice eight years, called it "the best
audit we've had to this point."
- According to Auditor General's
report, which looked at the 2003-
04 school year, the district generat-
ed $177,500 in fees from the pre-k

Westside Elementary, Macclenny

The most glaring problem was
that school officials could not veri-
fy they were receiving the full
amount of money from the extend-
ed day care program because they
didn't have a way to compare at-
tendance records with the amount
of fees collected.
The Auditor General recom-
mended the district conduct peri-
odic fee audits or establish proce-
dures to ensure it is collecting all
the fees due it.
Another problem was that the
fees being charged were not ap-
proved by the school board.
The board last set fees for ex-
tended day care in May 1995.
Since then, however, they changed
but were never submitted for ap-
Finally, the Auditor General
found that more than half the 303
fees collected for February 2004
were not immediately deposited.
Some were held up to 22 days.

dit, Ms, Barton said the district is
implementing improved proce-
dures for collecting fees.

proved the fees in October and im-
plemented an audit of both pro-

The Baldwin department hired
Mr. Lawrence despite a few minor
glitches in his application, accord-
ing to a letter written by Lt. R.W.
Gerth to then-chief M.H. Branch.
The letter, which summarizes
the department's background
check on Mr. Lawrence, said his
supervisor at the Department of
Corrections. "was disappointed"
that Mr. Lawrence, who'd worked
there for eight years, resigned by
simply calling in one day to say he
wasn't coming back to work.
He worked at the Baker Correc-
tional Institution from 1995 to
1999, before transferring to Lake
City until resigning in 2003.
The letter also noted that two
personal references never returned
calls made by Baldwin police offi-
cials. One of those was Charles
Ross, a sergeant with the Baker
County Sheriff's Office.
Another personal reference
could not be reached because his
home had burned down.
However, two others with the
sheriff's office Chief Gerald
Gonzalez and Deputy Charlie
Goldsmith spoke well of Mr.
They described him to Baldwin
officials as being highly motivat-
ed, a hard worker and loyal.
The background check also not-
ed that Mr. Lawrence was in the
midst of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Prior to working for the Depart-
ment of Corrections, he took early
retirement from the Navy after 15
years. He was honorably dis-
charged at the rank of E-6.

Mr. Bailine projects Adar will

and recreation areas. "Perhaps two
golf courses, a movie complex,
maybe a Publix, restaurants. We
look forward to growing with Bak-
er County, not forcing growth on
Baker County," he said.
Attorney Hugh Fish of Mac-
clenny, who has been recruited as
the local contact person, said he
was pleasantly surprised to be giv-
en the green light to respond to
Press inquiries. "It is so refreshing
to not have restrictions," he said.
Mr. Fish has been the Baker
County representative on the
Northeast Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council since 1985, and has
also represented several previous
development groups, some of
whom shunned discussion of pro-
jects with the newspaper.
"This is our first DRI-so we
want it to set the bar for the rest
that will be coming," Mr. Fish
said. He noted it will be a long
process, with "perhaps 18-24
months before the first shovel of
dirt is turned."

would like to see is extra right-of-
way reserved on both existing and
new roads to prepare for widening

The Baker County Commission
called a special session January 7
to hire two new part time employ-

Bobby Hancock will be the new

handling a glut of new construc-

There were 10 applicants for
the position, which was advertised
to pay $8.65 to $13.50 per hour.
Mr. Hancock will get the top
amount, although comments from
County Manager Jason Griffis dur-
ing the meeting indicated negotia-
,tions had included a higher figure.
"There were questions about the
salary, so on the next vacancy I
think we should let the department
head come to the board for a sala-
ry range to advertise on a "not to
exceed" basis. Then if we get a
"diamond" candidate, we could
come to the board to negotiate a
higher salary," Mr. Griffis suggest-
Mr. Shivers will be paid $10 per
hour to handle software for gov-
ernment offices including the
courthouse, administration, build-
ing and zoning, Emergency Opera-
tions Center and the Agriculture
Center. The board now wants a
proposal from SETEL for on-call
service of hardware problems.
Nick Frilling will continue han-
dling computers for the annex
housing the property appraiser, tax
collector and elections supervisor.
Mr. Shivers' primary responsi-
bilities will be to ensure computers
are ready for court three mornings
per week and for conference hear-
ings based in Gainesville.
"And he needs to be the first
line of defense for the ladies at the
courthouse," Mr. Frilling said of
the dozen deputy clerks who

court activities ranging from
speeding tickets to felonies.

Green Belt' deadline suit is settled
Sgt. Miller with the newly acquired 'patch' system for use in hand-held police radios.
Feds fund device that
links up police forces
The combination of greatly
increased federal spending on
home security coupled with the
upcoming Super Bowl in Jack-
sonville spelled a windfall of sorts
in the area of police communica-
tions systems available to the
Baker County Sheriff's Office.
The county will soon put into
service the Raytheon ACU-T unit
that eases direct portable radio
voice transmissions between local
officers and those of other area
counties in the event of a major
disaster or crime.
The $14,000 system was deliv-
ered recently and Sgt. Billy Miller
will be trained on its use later this
month. He in turn will train others.
Funding for it and a related
"patch-in" system installed last
week at the Emergency Operations

"The value of this to us is if we
get called to assist on a mutual aid
basis, we can take this unit out in
the field with us, and once it's acti-
vated we'll have the ability to
speak directly with deputies in
other Jacksonville area counties,"
said Lt. Gerald Gonzalez, chief
deputy for BCSO.
The ACU-T is also a suitable
alternative to a statewide police
network system deemed too costly
for smaller departments like Bak-
er. When the system is activated
in the field, officers with hand-
held radios in Duval, Clay, Nassau
and St. Johns counties are in direct
contact with counterparts here.
"All our uniformed officers
have the hand-held radios and this
eliminates their non-use in multi-
county emergencies," adds Lt.
The cost of the frequency
"patch-in" at the EOC, which he
likened to a Nextel phone, is
included in the $25 million state-
wide grant to Florida agencies.
Four of the county's dispatchers
were trained in its use last week. It
will allow them to connect up to
the same First Coast counties for
direct communications between
officers. Before, such conversa-
tions had to go through the dis-
patching third party.
"This equipment and the money
were mainly an anti-terrorist pro-
vision, but we foresee a lot of
other practical uses for us on a
day-to-day basis," predicted Lt.
BCSO is summoned on a mutu-
al-aid fairly frequently, mostly

Two timber companies that
took the county to court after fail-
ing to secure agriculture tax ex-
emptions in 2001 have settled their
lawsuits with the property apprais-
er's and tax collector's office.
The exemption, also called
"Green Belt," allows a lower tax
assessment on five acre and larger
parcels with timber and farm relat-
ed land uses.
EFG Balanced LLC and Ameri-
can Timberland LLC had already
paid the higher property taxes, but
will now get rebates. However,
both are still paying substantially
higher than they would have with
the agriculture designation for
thousands of acres of pine forest.
EFG would have paid only
$743,495 in 2001 taxes for its 5027
acres in Baker County. Instead,
without the exemption it was as-
sessed $5.027 million. The agree-
ment reduced it to $3,907,850.
American's Green Belt amount
would have been $521,085 on 2844
acres. But losing the exemption
put the bill at $2.984 million. The
settlement amount is $2,252,300.
The agreement stipulation indi-
cates the settlement reduced the
per acre levy on some parcels
without conferring the agriculture
exemption. That is not unusual,
and in fact is similar to outcomes

Jeffrey Leonard, 20, is accused
of throwing a projectile at a mov-
ing vehicle, and Troy Leonard, 42,

with a deadly weapon, both of
which are felonies.

ton and Jessica May, said Troy
Leonard tried to run them off the
road near the intersection of Mac-
clenny Avenue and Lowder Street
at 8:40 pm.
Then Jeffrey Leonard got out of
the vehicle and threw something at

When L uc-.tirniJ b\ Deputy

The officer, however, felt the

he'd gone to the post office.
Later, Jeffrey Leonard's mother
let it slip that he'd gone out for di-
Ms. May's mother told Deputy
Morgan that Troy Leonard had
earlier in the week threatened to
beat Mr. Witherington.
Ms. May used to date Jeffrey
Leonard. They had a child togeth-
plexities of buying the acreage
from Gilman Timberlands Man-
agement LLC prevented it from
meeting the March 1 deadline that
year to apply for Green Belt.
The tracts overlapped Bradford,
Clay and Duval county lines, and
it took considerable time to divide
parcel descriptions, they argued. A
total of four companies bought
more than 44,000 acres from
Gilman, which had the agriculture
exemption more than 15 years.
The governments handled the
exemption process differently:
Clay sent applications fully filled
out and naming the new owners;
Bradford sent the applications, but
still listed Gilman as exemption
holder; Baker did not send renewal
notices to Gilman or new applica-
tions to American and EFG.
Adding to the problem were
health problems of F&W depart-
ment head Sonja Usry. However,
in an October 2001 hearing, the
Baker County Value Adjustment
Board noted she had an 18 mem-
ber staff that properly filed the ex-
emption applications in Bradford
and Duval counties.

County re-opens trash
locations for yard debris
In a special meeting January 7,
the Baker County Commission de-
cided to reopen most outlying
refuse collection sites to take yard
trash, but to also keep the new
yard debris site at the old Steel
Since the fall quartet of hurri-
canes struck Florida, yard debris
has been accepted only at Steel
Bridge, where it is burned. Having
citizens bring tree limbs and simi-
lar debris there has worked so well,
County Road Superintendent Rob-
ert Fletcher asked to reopen ser-
vice only at Baxter, Cuyler, Olus-
tee, Sanderson and Mud Lake.
The low volume at those sites
makes it possible for the site atten-
dants to handle. But large amounts
at the Macclennyand Glen St. Ma-
ry collection centers often ties up a
front end loader and several trucks
for hours-time that could better be
spent on road work, Mr. Fletcher
explained. -' ... .. '
Since the debris goes to Steel
Bridge anyway, he reasoned, it is
better for citizens to bring it there
to start with. It is only about a ten
mile maximum trip for those cus-
tomers, about the same as for
many to reach their outlying

The Baker County Press
Terming it a New Year's reso-
lution, Baker County Commis-
sioner Fred Raulerson said Janu-
ary 4 he hopes to renew his
board's interest in curbside trash
"While driving to this meeting,
between CR 127 and Cuyler I saw
five large bags of trash and a lot
of litter. We have got to seek
money for garbage service," Mr.
He got approval for a commit-
tee to re-investigate the idea, per-
haps with the county collecting
the fees as part of an increased
special assessment. The county
already levies $75 per home, but
that is toward the per ton tipping
fees at Ellerbee Curve Landfill.
Mr. Raulerson feels doubling
that figure, along with money
saved by closing up to three of the
collection sites, might cover the
door-to-door pickup cost. Clerk of
Courts Al Fraser said he currently
pays $11 per month for once
weekly pickup by a private firm, a
figure Mr. Raulerson said might
be lower if a company was assured
all homes would enroll.
If the county collected the fees,
the company would not have to
mail monthly bills, and deal with
non-payers, another potential

Robert Fletcher estimated last
year curbside collection could run
a million dollars annually. The
current assessments are expected
to bring $319,000, so a similar
additional levy would cover only
about a third of that estimate.
A good way to get a better esti-
mate is to advertise a request for
proposals, suggested attorney Ter-
ry Brown. "We did that a couple
of years ago in Starke, and were
surprised at the interest."
The county board briefly flirted
with the idea nearly a year ago,
holding several meetings with the
owners of two private hauling
companies who have contracts
with homeowners throughout the
county. Both companies wanted
exclusive franchises in parts of the
county, since their routes now
overlap and they may have only a
few customers in a neighborhood.
However, several commission-
ers were concerned the franchise
arrangement would chill price'
competition, and did not like the
idea of locking the county to a
five to ten year contract. While
never officially scrapped, the is-
sue was not discussed again after
County Manager Jason Griffis

Slowed another ceremony that evening
where constitutional officers re-took
office oaths, all of them assuming new
terms after being unopposed in the fall,
2004 primaries. Sheriff Dobson
explained to the audience that the
renewal of oaths was not required but
served as a reminder of the seriousness
with which employees should approach
law enforcement and support duties.
He also reminded them the department
serves at the public's behest and they
are to conduct themselves accordingly.
A farewell reception is planned
for Thursday, February 24 to
honor C.B. (Bud) Stotler, adminis-
trator at Northeast Florida State
Hospital the past 21 years, on his
final day there.
Mr. Stotler will be winding up a
35 year career with the state. He
first came to the state hospital as
an assistant administrator, and
took the helm in 1984.
His tenure there has been pep-
pered with several political battles
fending off state efforts to reduce
the patient population and work
force at NEFSH, convert it into a
prison or close it altogether. More
recently, he played a key role in
the effort to. stave off privatization
after it was approved by a Florida
House budget committee.
In another area, the hospital
held its awards ceremony recently,
announcing the top employees for
several months in late 2004.
Linda Shell, a nurse supervisor,
took the honors during August
because of her quick action assist-
ing another employee who became
ill back in April.
Barbara Bates, who works in
service planning, was September's
honoree. She was praised for.ar-
ranging for service coordination
during the hurricanes when many
employees had to take off.
Employee of the Month during
November was Janis Crow, lauded
for her efficiency and leadership
filling the role as a unit supervisor
after the loss of her predecessor.
Greg Starling and Gary Well-
hausen were honored for 25 years
at NEFSH; Shirley Reed and Sally

Tsunami victims and
Dr. Salas... considering
the moments of life
We have all been shocked and
saddened by the reality of death
over the last couple of weeks. The
massive tragedies caused by tsuna-
mi waves in Sri Lanka, Indonesia,
India, and Thailand are almost
more than we can get our minds
It is unimaginable that a beauti-
ful day filled with the normal ac-
tivities of life could suddenly, and
without warning be swallowed up
in a colossal wall of water sweep-
ing over 100,000 to their death and
leaving massive destruction, injury
and untold misery in its wake.
A little closer to home, many in
our community were shocked and
saddened by the sudden death of
Dr. Andre Salas, an incredible 53-
year-old physician who made his
mark in our county. One man's
death may seem tiny in compari-
son to over 100,000, but it touches
us directly and is a reminder of the
same inevitable reality: life is pre-
cious and its timing isn't in our
King David put it this way in
his psalm, "As for man, his days
are as grass: as a flower of the
field, so he flourisheth. For the
wind passeth over it and it is gone;
and the place thereof shall know it
no more." Then he added, "But the
mercy of the Lord is from everlast-
ing to everlasting upon them that
fear him, and his righteousness un-
to children's children." (103:15-
Moments of tragedy and loss al-
ways bring us face to face with the
reality of life. We consider its frag-
ile nature and ponder our own use
of it. We experience its uncertain-
ty, sometimes accompanied by an-
xiet\,'confusion and fear. And
then, as if to defend against some-
S hin, -- c helm ir :, ..c ut it 11
a! ^iSEa ren-ttme" our'hlves m the
same manner as before. Lessons
potentially gained are pushed aside
until the next tragic moment.
It doesn't have to be this way.
There is meaning, purpose and plan
within each moment of life, and
even more incredible than the ter-
rifying power of destructive forces
is the awesome nature of lives well-
lived. Because we aren't equipped
to see the fullness of an intercon-
nected world bound together with
miraculous threads invisible to the
naked eye, we can't begin to see
the influence our tiny life in an un-
important place makes in the grand

Andrew Johnson can't quite reach an offensive rebound in the first half of the Wildcats 68-52 victory over Suwannee County Jan
the Baker High Gym. Demarieon Givens (10) and Andrew Bowman (40) watch a Bulldog grab the ball. The win stopped a six-ga
streak and avenged a loss to the Dogs in Live Oak five days before.
Trade wins with 'Dogs
The Baker High Wildcat boys
basketball team won the back end
of a "home and home" with Su-
wannee County, defeating the
Bulldogs 68-52 at the Baker High
gym January 11.
Five days earlier, the Cats lost
65-59 at Live Oak.
At home, the Wildcats never
trailed, jumping to a 9-0 lead, fu-
eled by an old-school three-point
play by freshman Carlos Holton,
who was fouled making a layup
off a Suwannee turnover just sev-
en seconds into the game.
The Bulldogs hit a three for
their first points two minutes into

Justin Gaskins answered with a

more point in the first quarter until
Bo Clayton hit both ends of a one

putting his team up 15-12.
Clayton led both teams with
with 21 points, including 17 in the
Gaskins scored 10 of his 18 in
the first half.
The two teams played evenly
through the second quarter, until
the Cats went on a 7-2 run to close
out the half up 26-20.
Behind Clayton's 11 third-quar-
ter points, Baker pushed the lead
to double 'digits, but in the last
couple of minutes, Suwannee
closed the gap'to 43-38 going into
the fourth quarter.
The Bulldog press picked up a
couple of turnovers to start the
quarter, then with 6:31 to go, the
Dogs hit two free throws to pull to
In the next 44 seconds, howev-
er, Clayton responded with a three-
ball, then was fouled on a hard dri-
ve to the hoop. He made the basket
and hit the free throw to put the
Cats up 51-43.
The margin stayed pretty much
the same until Baker pulled away
with about two minutes to go.
Bo Clayton goes up for two of
high 21 points against Suwannee
The win stopped a six

I can't help but feeling a little
let down watching the NFL play-
offs. A better effort against the
Houston Texans and it would have
been the Jaguars, not the Denver
Broncos, playing the Colts.
I actually think the Jaguars might
have made a better showing against
Peyton Manning and his cast of
supporting characters than the hap-
less Broncos. After all, the Jags
S beat the Colts in Indianapolis this
But Denver beat the Manning-
less Colts last week and kept Jack-
sonville from making a wild card
This week, however, when it
.... counted, Manning took the Bron-
uary 1 at cos to school. He showed them
'me losing why he is the best quarterback in
the NFL, why it's a mistake to call
his receiving corps "soft," as Den-
ver players did in the days leading
up to the game, and why no one
should discount the Colts as Super
They manhandled Denver. It
looked like men versus boys out
Although most observers expect
either the 15-1 Pittsburgh Steelers
or defending Super Bowl champi-
on New England Patriots to win
the AFC, the Colts gave convinc-
ing testimony on why that's not a
For the past few weeks, Brett
Favre and his Packers have strug-
gled on the road and at home.
Favre threw three interceptions
against the Jaguars a few weeks
ago. Not all were his fault, but the
game-turning pick he threw to
Rashean Mathis in the end zone
was just a bone-headed play.
He turned around and did the
.. same thing at home against the
S Vikings Sunday, throwing four in-
terceptions. As a result, he will
have a longer vacation than antici-
his game pated.
County. The 8-8 Vikings sure didn't
look like a .500 team. Daunte
;-game Culpepper, the former University
:ed the of Central Florida quarterback,
threw pinpoint passes and ran the
iJ over ball ove.rthe top of the Packers de-
as look- fense. Culpepper, who weighs in at
3askins, around 260 pounds, is huge, and
eligible' has the mentality of a linebacker.
He was the difference in the game.
January Randy Moss couldn't keep out
against of the headlines. The previous
week, he walked off the field prior
the end of a loss to the Washington
Redskins. This week, Moss again
drew the ire of fans and commen-
tators by pantomiming dropping
his pants and mooning Packers
fans after a score. He will probably
get a fine, but it just goes to show
that Moss' mind isn't clicking on
all common sense cylinders.
The surprising San Diego Charg-
ers were surprising again on Satur-
day, but in a bad way. They lost to
the New York Jets in overtime.
The Chargers looked to have the
game wrapped up in overtime, but
their rookie kicker missed a 40-
yard field goal that would have
given them the victory.
The Jets then came back and hit
a field goal of their own to win it.
Not only was the on-field action
exciting, but at one point Jets head
coach Herman Edwards and one of
his assistant coaches, Bishop Har-
ris, almost came to blows over
Harris' choice to give the ball to
Lamont Jordan instead of NFL
rushing champ Curtis Martin on a

Star power, zaniness
propel 'Fockers' sequel
BY BOB GERARD
Meet the Fockers, the sequel to
Meet the Parents, is a very funny
movie. Granted, it's a little crude,
a little infantile like Meet the Par-
ents, but all that said, it is also a
movie that will make you laugh
Meet the Fockers also. has
enough wattage from out-and-out
star power to run all of Hollywood.
Oscar winners Dustin Hoffman,
Barbra Streisand and Robert De-
Niro join Blythe Danner and Ben
Stiller in this screwball comedy.
If you don't quite remember the
premise, Stiller and Teri Polo are
going to be married. Stiller is reg-
istered nurse Gaylord "Greg" Fock-
er (oh, yeah, you can have a lot of
fun with that name), and in the
original he met up with Polo's
straight-laced parents, Jack and
Dina Byrnes, played by DeNiro
