The Baker County Press and
WJXT Channel 4 have agreed in

County area, and we're pleased to
be affiliated with them in what are
commonly called 'news partner-
ships,'" said Press Publisher Jim


McGauley. "We plan to be a more
active conduit to the station on
Baker County area news, both tele-
vised and on the station's website
News4Jax.com."
Station managing editor Steve


Patrick said the partnership "fits well into Channel 4's we'll help them with our newsgathering resources

County enacts law


requiring paving of


subdivision roads


Nearly 20 years after the Baker
County Commission enacted a
landmark ban on acceptance of dirt
roads for county maintenance, the
board voted April 5 to force devel-
opers to pave all interior roads in
subdivisions.
That means no new unpaved
roads for homeowner associations
to maintain, a proposal applauded
by Amy Callihan of Hemlock
Street in Macclenny South.
"I've lived here four years now,
on a dirt road, and the developer
never promised otherwise. But I
didn't realize there would not be
enough money from a homeowner
association-just to maintain the
road regularly, much less pave it,"
Mrs. Callihan said.
She suggested the county en-
courage existing homeowner asso-
ciations to band together to contract
with either the county road depart-
ment or a management company
for the road maintenance.
Several developers were not
pleased with the paving require-
ment, however, insisting they should
be grandfathered or otherwise ex-
empt because their projects are al-
ready underway.
Both Jeff Cook and Greg Boree
feel they got caught in the midst of
changing regulations, since their
original instructions were to get ei-
ther permits or exemptions from
the St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District before submitting re-
zoning requests.
Mr. Cook expected to be exempt
from the district permits on his 53
acre parcel off Bill Davis Road,
which he plans to carve into five
single family home lots.
However, water management of-
ficials notified him last September
they are also tightening regulations
in response to "numerous drainage
complaints for these types of proj-
ects after they have been construct-
ed."
The proposed Davis Creek Es-
tates was not exempt and would be
treated as "a typical subdivision in-
cluding identification of wetlands
and providing stormwater treat-
ment," the district advised.
Mr. Cook said it took until March
11 to compile engineering data and
submit it to the water management
district.
"I've made a huge financial com-
mitment working under your prior
rules," he said.
He said he would contract with a
management company for this proj-
ect, as he has for others,, to handle
grading, limerock application and
ditch projects.
Mr. Boree said he was also told
to get the water management per-
mit before seeking rezoning of his
project along Cowpen Road off US
90 west.
"I've spent thousands and thou-
sands of dollars the past 13 months,
under the impression I had to have
that permit before I could start any-
thing. So I ask for vested rights,"
Mr. Boree said.
Benny Bagley spoke in favor of
the paving requirement.
"My daughter purchased a lot
there (in Mr. Boree's development)
with the understanding the road


would be paved. If it's not paved,
there are not enough people there
to keep the road maintained."
Mr. Boree denied promising pav-
ing.
"I never misrepresented that the
road would be paved. I did say I'd
put asphalt milling on it."
Attorney Terry Brown advised
that neither Mr. Cook's nor Mr.
Boree's projects qualify for grand-
fathering, exemption or a possible
"vested rights" amendment.
Meanwhile, the commission's
next step is an ordinance to require
landowners to share in the cost of
improving existing county roads if
they want to develop new subdivi-
sions.
In other related business, one
land use change was denied, anoth-
er tabled, and several others ap-
proved by the board during Tues-
day's meeting.
The veto came on the petition
of Joseph and Grace DeFee for a
mini-storage lot on Beech Street in
Sanderson just north of the railroad
tracks.
Commission Chairman Julie
Combs influenced the decision.
"This is in my district, and I feel
strongly about commercial use go-
ing into a residential area. There's
already a lot of late night activity
there," she explained, citing also
the added traffic a business would
bring across the railroad crossing.
Neighbor James Eddy also op-
posed the business, suggesting it
could bring a "bad element" of loi-
terers including crack users.
"There's already a liquor store
across the street. I feel you should
keep across the railroad tracks for
commercial and leave my area
alone," he argued.

Relay for Life

raises $46,000...
Three-year-old Austin Rich of Macclenny was the
youngest of 60 cancer survivors who made the first
lap around the oval Saturday afternoon at the start
of the fourth annual American Cancer Society Relay
for Life at the Baker County fairgrounds. More than
300 team members registered for the benefit walk
that. brings in money for the Baker County unit of
ACS, one of several similar events in northeast
Florida that day. In photo at right, several of the
dozens of white paper luminaries that lined the
track in memory of cancer victims and survivors
both. If all the pledges are collected, the Relay will
bring in almost $6000 more than this year's goal.
Young Austin was diagnosed with a rare form of
soft-tissue muscle cancer at the age of six months,
and was the subject of a Press feature in May of last
year after he went into remission. He is the son of
Jamie and Paul Rich.

20 arrests

Weekend sting using
Orange County cops

BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
The Baker County Sheriff's Of-
fice hosted a fish fry last week, but
it was drug sellers and buyers who
got indigestion.
At the request of Sheriff Joey Dob-
son, Orange County Sheriff Kevin
Beary sent 22 deputies here April 7
to conduct a couple of days worth
of undercover drug stings, mostly
in Margaretta, Sanderson espe-
cially Club 229 (The Juke) and:
Olustee.
Baker County drug investigators
Scotty Rhoden and David Bryant,
worked the cases as well.
Dubbed Operation Fish Fry, the:
venture reeled in 20 arrests most
involving crack cocaine with four:
more pending.
Sheriff Dobson said there would
have been more if not for the per-:
sistent rains.
He also said the Orange County:
officers looked and played their
parts well. The sheriff's office,
headquartered in Orlando, has:
about 60 officers working drug cas-

Nude dining? Not anytime soon

Friday was, after all, April Fool's Day.
The traditional day of pranks and practical jokes failed to dampen the /'' O
alarm of a handful of people who called the newspaper and Macclenny AW s ,,
City Hall about the sign affixed to a pine tree facing the westbound exit of iO O
Interstate 10 at SR 121 in the south city.
It read: Future Home of Cafe Risquel, complete with an illustration of
a voluptuous bikini-clad, semi-reclining female figure. The sign appeared
to be professionally finished with red lettering and border on a white i
background.
George Knabb, Jr., whose family owns the undeveloped tract near the
busy 121 interchange, happened upon that morning. He knew it was a
joke.
Regular travelers on 1-75 and 1-95 in Florida and Georgia recognize
Cafe Risque by its multiple billboards. Housed in what once were Stuck-
ey's restaurants, they are essentially truck stops and tourist traps whose
unique lure is all-nude waitresses. They also have adjoining shops selling
X-rated movies and sexually-oriented merchandise.
Macclenny City Hall also received several calls, and because establish-
ments like Risque are banned by ordinance, employees quickly surmised *
the sign was a hoax.
Roger Yarbrough of the building-zoning office confirmed the sign's lo-
cation, and in the early afternoon it was taken down, but not before city
workers Rusty Rhoden and Timmy Dugger had to call for help. Their
trucks bogged down in the rain-sodden muck near the stand of pines, and
had to be pulled out by tractor.
"Someone went to a lot of trouble with a big ladder to get it that high
in the tree," observed Mr. Rhoden, adding the sign was firmly affixed .
with four nails. He said no clues were evident that might be helpful to '
determine the identity of the prankster or pranksters.
As of Tuesday, no one has taken credit for it, either. City workers had to destroy parts of the sign taking it down from the tree.


es.
Sheriff Dobson paid to house:
and feed the visiting deputies, but
their salaries were paid by Orange
County and they brought all their:
own equipment, including vehicles
and cash to buy drugs.
One of the benefits of having:
outside officers working undercov-:
er is that members of the local drug
culture don't know them.
In addition, Baker County inves-
tigators don't have to rely on infor-
mants, who Sheriff Dobson said are
"sometimes worse than the ones
we're arresting."
He said he has a good relation-
ship with Sheriff Beary, and they
plan on repeating the operation pe-
riodically.
About the only glitch in the
stings was Orange County Corpo-
ral Scott Chehutski paid $40 to an
alleged seller on Grissholm Street
in Macclenny.
The man, Dominique Lee, told
him to drive around the block and
come back to pick up his crack.
When the officer returned, Mr.
Lee said he hadn't given him any
money, then started throwing rocks
at his car.
Corporal Chehutski got out of
his car, but Mr. Lee began throwing
rocks at him.
He got back in his car to leave
when an unidentified man walked
over and said he would deliver the
crack, but then he punched the offi-
cer in the face and fled.
Jeffrey Church then approached
the car with a large wooden stick
and tried to hit Corporal Chehutski,:
who gave a pre-arranged distress
signal and descriptions of the men. :
The suspects all fled, but other
officers were able to catch them.
Mr. Lee, 18, of Macclenny, was
charged with throwing a missile in-
to a vehicle, resisting arrest and
theft.
Mr. Church, 19, of Macclenny;
was charged with aggravated as-

District is

contracting

study on

impact fees

To accommodate the county's
anticipated growth, the Baker
County School Board is looking
into whether impact fees will be
needed to fund new school con-
struction and student transporta-
tion.
Impact fees, which are levied
on new development, are used to
add or upgrade infrastructure -
such as roads and utilities af-
fected by development.
Board members at their April 4
meeting agreed to hire a consul-
tant to study the issue.
Superintendent Paula Barton
said the law requires that a study
be done in order to prove the need
for the fees.
"We can't possibly keep up
with the growth," she said.
Macclenny Elementary was
built three years ago at a cost of
$11.8 million.
The district, however, paid less
'than $3 million because it took
advantage of state money that is
not likely to be available
"How are we as a school dis-
trict going to be able to afford
those schools?"
She said the district is trying to
be proactive so that "we can con-
struct those schools in a timely
manner."
She also said impact fees are
assessed by all surrounding coun-
ties except Bradford which is
considering them.

New law bans unpaved roads...


DOF proceeds given to district...
It was more accurately a case of one public agency congratulating another for transferring
public money into its coffers as School Superintendent Paula Barton on April 4 presented a
plaque to area supervisor Steve Holman of the Division of Forestry after he presented the
school district with a check for $68,340. The money represents proceeds from the sale of
fire-damaged timber last year from state-owned land. The agreement between Florida and
the school district requires 15% of revenues be given back to Baker County schools. The
presentation took place during the board meeting at the Taylor Church.


ardson said the study will be well
worth the money spent on the
consultant.
"The study is going to prove
that we need [impact fees]," she
told the board.
Ms. Barton said it would be up
to the county commission to actu-
ally assess the fees.
In line with interlocal agree-
ments among area government
bodies, public hearings would be
held to discuss the issue.
The consultant's report could
take at least 30 to 60 days to be
completed, she said.


Board chairwoman Patricia
Weeks said it's likely the report
will include a recommended
range for the fees.
Board members will schedule a
work session to review the study
when it is completed by the con-
sultant, whose name was not im-
mediately available.

Mr. DeFee said he believed the
lights in his mini-storage lot would
improve the area.
At the request of Commissioner
Gordon Crews, the board tabled
until April 18 Jerrell Mobley's re-
quest to divide a 1.88 acre lot on
SR 121 South for three mobile
home rental lots. Neighbor Fred
Mallory objected, saying an exist-
ing trailer park also owned by Mr.
Mobley creates, numerous prob-
lems for him and devalues his
property.
"It's junky at times, his tenants
shoot BBs at my horses, light off
firecrackers at 10, 11, 12 pm, the
kids come on my property," Mr.
Mallory said.
Billy Rowe agreed, "If you're
going to have zoning, stick to it.
My land's been in my family for
200 years but what if I decided to
put 200 mobile homes in there?"
County planning and zoning di-
rector Cathy Rhoden said the area
is mixed use zoning including high
density residential all the way
south to Northeast Florida State
Hospital, and Mr. Mobley's re-
quest for approximately half acre
lots would be consistent.
Approval was granted despite a
neighbor's disapproval for Bush-
man Builders' land use and zoning
change on 10 acres off CR 23C for
one acre home lots. Roger Bush-
man produced a sketch of his de-
velopment, which is to include a
paved interior road plus extra ease-
ment to preserve a row of oak
trees.
Denton Bowen said the propos-
al violates the comprehensive land


use plan b\ chopping-up-L-arge
parcels juLi tn' mnike monc-'.'
However, he lives four lots away
from Mr. Bushman's land, and
there are other one acre and half
acre parcels nearby.
There was no opposition and
thus quick approval for Thomas
Hodges' rezoning to expand his
welding and ironworks business
on SR 121 North.


Sinidiarvlyc-aD ompxldxseries 'of
ordinances firstvacated the subdi
vision designation on 18 acres of
the 34.28 acre Olustee Manor
Farms of the early 1900s.
Then owner Marty Owens of

land use change and rezoning to
half acre parcels. Mr. Owens next
has to submit a subdivision plat
application.

hImpact fee

or nance

a sure bet

in future



IMPRESSIONS
JIM McGAULEY


Anybody around who doesn't
think that substantial impact fees
aren't around the corer?
Even the Baker County School
Board got into the act this week,
approving a consultant to come in
Sand say for the school district what
it apparently cannot (probably
doesn't want to anyway) say for it-
self.
New growth is going to have to
pay some up-front money.
At the same time, the county-
Macclenny coalition of govern-
ment agencies plans a workshop
very soon to coordinate a plan for
impact fees. Shortly after, we're
likely to see the ordinances calling
for them.
Most Baker County residents
who haven't lived elsewhere in
Florida will likely look at all this
as something new. In truth, the
state's high growth counties have
been wrestling with impact fees
for decades.
The theory is this: start-up and
infrastructure costs associated with
new growth far exceed the ability
of ad valorem tax revenues to
catch up with them.
Subdivisions are the prime ex-
.ample. Where there once was
standing timber, there soon will
be, say, 100 homes.
Each home, for purposes of il-
lustration, can be expected to pay
$1000lo ayear:in property taxes for
S schools, police, roads, etc. When
timber grew on the acreage, the
owner paid a fraction of that, say
$50 an acre on 50 acres. That's
$2500.
The subdivision developer
carves the tract into 100 half-acre
lots. Eventually, taxing agencies
will divide the $1000 property tax
derived from each one a
$100,000 piece of pie.
Is $100,000 a better deal for the
county and city than $2500?
Don't answer too quickly.
The standing timber didn't send
children to school or drive on pub-
lic roadways. Trees don't leave
garbage to pick up, they don't use
local hospitals or recreation facili-
ties. They don't need police
protection (as opposed to fire pro-
tection).
One could make the argument
that a county or city was better off
when just pine trees dotted the
landscape, as compared to new
homes.
But that's an oversimplification.
Baker County is adjacent to a
fast growing metro area in one of
the top five fastest growing states
in the Union. Developers look to
the area as an opportunity, and
landowners who once were more-
than happy to grow trees are now
lured into the mix with the
promise of multiple times return
on original investment.
In the'case of owners who'
inherited timberland originally

purchased for pennies or dollars
per acre, the lure is yet greater.
Capital gains taxes aren't near
high enough to prevent them from
eagerly awaiting their pay-off day.
So the forces are all lined up,
kind of like atmospheric condi-
tions favorable to hurricanes.
Once the momentum builds to
critical mass, like it has in nearby
St. Johns County, government sim-
ply has to respond, and do so in a
way that sticks it to new develop-
ment.
Recently, impact fees in St.
Johns were proposed that are so


steep they may actually stifle
future growth. Developers will
look elsewhere as a result, and for
many residents that's fine, too.
It's the old "close the gates after
you let me in" syndrome.
Baker County will grow at a
much faster clip the first half of
this century, to be sure, but proba-
bly not as fast as neighboring
counties with rivers and beaches.
That gives us a little breathing
room for now, and a chance to set
reasonable (for both developers
and taxing agencies) impact fees
that strike a medium between con-


flicting interests.
You notice we're not saying
"happy medium" because no one
wants to pay them, but they are a
fact of life.
People expect government ser-
vices, good roads, clean air, police,
fire, sewer and water the works.
Unfortunately, property taxes
alone aren't enough to cover the
massive expense of infrastructure
required by local, state and federal
regulations.
Impact fees? You got 'em.


Get stricter on developers


ON THE

RECORD
S;,NANCY SZANTO.

The last time the Baker County
Commission took such a giant
step forward was in May 1987 a
ban on accepting dirt roads for
county maintenance
This time, almost exactly 18
years later, the board voted a
companion ban on new dirt
roads at all. Actually, the ordi-
nance words it as "to require the
paving of all roads in all proposed
subdivisions."
Developers are going to
scream and threaten to sue a
couple of them were close to do-
ing so even as the paving ordi-
nance was up for a vote during
the April 5 commission meeting.
But the board needs to stand
firm and get even stricter. In fact,
there are two companion bills in


the works that will upset the de-
velopers some more:
Require them to at least par-
ticipate in paving existing county
roads if their projects will have a
substantial adverse impact.
Impact fees, being considered
by the county, Macclenny and
school district.
None of these will begin to
cover the full cost of infrastruc-
ture needs created by the intense
growth the county is already ex-
periencing. But it is far more than
developers have ever before been
required to contribute in Baker
County.
For way too long, these folks
have been able to create sub-stan-
dard projects and dump them on
the county. One 1980s era lot sell-
er, for instance, pushed his main
road down a major drainage path
- because it was devoid of trees
and thus easier to bulldoze. No
tree trunks to haul away, no grub-
bing of stumps and roots, just a
clear path all the way down a hill.

You can guess what happened:-
the road became a river every
time it rained. The Press often got
calls from the embattled residents,
who wanted us to come take pho-
tos of them having to row their
kids out to school bus stops.
The county eventually had to
spend a lot of money to install an
outfall ditch and divert the drain-
age path.
We have advanced light years
beyond that over the last couple
of decades. Roads, even dirt ones
the county will never put a bull-
dozer on, are supposed to be con-
structed to standards set by the
road superintendent and engineer.
Some would-be developers
have tried to skate past the re-
quirements, even selling lots ille-
gally until they are caught. Some
promise buyers that someone -
the city, the county, a vague
"homeowner association" will
grade and otherwise maintain the
road.
Too late, the buyers learn they
must themselves form and main-
tain the association. And the five
and ten acre lots seem less entic-
ing when it means fewer owners
to share the cost of periodically
hiring someone to grade the road.
Even worse, they learn what
the road department already
knows a drenching series of
rainstorms, or worse a hurricane,
can totally wash out a road. There
truly is a reason a very good one
- that the county wants no more
dirt roads.
Now the county has finally de-
cided not to allow developers to
inflict dirt roads on homebuyers
even less equipped to cope with
them.
Three cheers and a big pat on
the back for the Baker County
Commission!

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
:-sROBERT GERARD
I've got nothing against horses.
I'll watch the Kentucky Derby like
your average American. I'll even
stand and admire horses from a
distance, thinking what magnifi-
cent animals they are.
So why in heaven's name must
they torment me?
Do horses have something
against me? As a child, did I acci-
dentally make fun of the Lone
Ranger's Silver? I don't think so. I
believe I am blameless in all this.
But horses seem to think differ-
ently.
I'll happily tell you what I mean,
and you can see whether some-
where down the line I've been
cursed by My Friend Flicka.
When I was in high school, I
was president of the Art Club. I
had to ride in the Homecoming
Parade. A friend of mine suggested
I drive a horse cart. That did not
seem a good idea to me and I tried
to get out of it. No such luck.
Things were arranged alphabet-
ically and the Art Club float was
up front, right behind the police
cars and the fire engines and right
in front of the band.
Oh, boy.
They say animals can sense
fear. I believe that. It certainly was
the case when I got to the parade.
The horse took one look at me,
cast an eye at its owner as if to say,
"You've got to be kidding," and
then whinnied derisively.
If I could have whinnied, I
might have done the same.
"Don't worry," my friend said
enthusiastically. "If you want her
to go left, pull on the left rein. If
you want her to go right, pull the
right rein. If you want her to stop,
pull back hard and say 'Whoa!' If
you want her to go, slap the reins
and say 'Giddap!' That's about all
there is to it. Just remember, you
have to be firm with her."
Swell. She walked away to en-
joy the parade. The horse looked
over its shoulder at me balefully. It
was going to be a long afternoon.
Little did I know how long.
At that moment, the parade be-
gan. The fire engines started their
lights and sirens, as did the police
cars. The CHS band struck up On-
ward Victorious. The horse hadn't
bargained on this. Her ears pinned
back on her head and without any
urging from me, turned around and
charged through the middle of the
band. Tubas and trombones went
flying. For the next two or three
minutes, I did my best to firmly
yell, "Whoa." I pulled back on the
reins. But this was a female with a
mind of her own and she went
straight through the parade on her
way down US 41 South. For all I
knew, we were bound for Gaines-
ville.
Her owner finally caught up
with us about three miles out of
town. "You just weren't firm
enough with her," I was told.
"I would have had to have hit
her over the head with a shovel to
be any firmer," I argued.
"Sounds like.a plan. Next time
we'll bring a shovel in the cart."
Actually, I told you that story to
tell you this story. Last week, I
went fishing in St. Augustine with
my buddy Denny Wells. We had


Denny's wife Diane's convertible
Mustang and we thought we were
pretty big bugs.
We tooled around St. Augustine
with the top down, soaking up the
rays and telling stories. Little did
we know we were going to wind
up with a better story than any of
the ones we told each other.
That evening after dinner, we
decided to ride around the old sec-
tion of St. Augustine when it be-
gan to rain. When I say rain, I
mean Biblical, Noah-style rain.
Thunder, lightning, deluge kind of
rain. The sort of rain that sends
tourists scampering for any shelter
available.
We had just turned up the street
by the Columbia Restaurant when
we heard feverish honking and
skidding behind us. Denny instinc-
tively swerved to the left, thinking
he's about to get rear-ended. How
right he was, but in a way he never
could have anticipated.
I looked out my side view mir-
ror, only to see a run-away horse
and his sightseeing carriage ca-
reening toward me. The horse was
wild-eyed, with flaring nostrils
and foam coming out of its mouth.
This was one of the four, horses of
the apocalypse, from the look of
him, and a distant cousin to the
one I drove in the parade.
This horse was obviously no
great judge of distance. He and his
carriage tried to squeeze between
me and the giant concrete balus-
trades protecting the Columbia.
Bad move on his part.
Wham! He slams into the Mus-
tang. The carriage hits the balus-
trade with enough force to topple
it, and in the process a giant back
wheel comes flying off. The horse,
which is even more hysterical be-
cause of the collision, drags the
whole rig down the street, breaks
his leather restraints and goes gal-
loping around the corner.
In all, the horse collided with
four other cars, or so the police
told-us. "This happens a cdple of
times a. year," the policeman con-
fided.
Denny calls home but his wife
won't believe him. I wonder why?
"Diane, your Mustang has been vi-
olated by Seabiscuit. I am trauma-
tized for life!"
The only way we could deal
with it was to make every horse
joke we could think of. "Let's keep
driving, Denny. After all, when
you fall off a horse, you've just
got to climb back on."
"Don't give Trigger any ideas."
-I should have seen it coming. It
was the curse of My Friend Flicka
rearing its ugly equine head. The
only thing we needed to make it
perfect was a parade.

'Lord Calvert' tries to

bribe deputy with $5


The (gas) numbers keep going up...
Like the numbers on the end of this suction pole in the hands of Denise.Crews outside the
Citgo store at 110 and CR 125 south of Glen St. Mary this week, the price of gas at the
pump is reaching for the sky. Ms. Crews was busy April 4 changing the sign numbers once
again to reflect yet another increase in gas and diesel in all grades. The average price per
gallon of gas statewide, according to Florida AAA's website, rose to $2.24 a gallon; a
month ago it was $1.95. In the Jacksonville area as of Tuesday, the average was $2.23 and
$1.93 last month. A year ago it stood at $1.76, a price we're not likely to ever see again.
Some predict $3.00 a gallon during the peak summer driving demand.



Had six pieces of crack


A Macclenny man stopped for
driving erratically April 2 was
charged with possession of co-
caine after police found six pieces
of crack on him.
Roy Paulk, 47, was headed west
on Ohio Avenue toward Sixth
Street when Deputy Jeffrey Daw-
son caught up to him around 11:25
pm.
The officer saw him swerve off
the road several times, then
stopped him in the CVS parking

Glen re-zoning
Rezoning was approved March
28 for Tropical Equipment Sales
and Leasing Inc.'s showroom and
sales warehouse on Glen St. Ma-
ry's western border.
However, the company must
await the town council's April 19
approval adding the use to the land
use code.
This will not be a problem for
the company, which plans a show-
room two to four years in the fu-
ture. But Tropical Equipment drew
the wrath of the council and citi-
zens over its proposed interim use:
storage of dumpsters owned by
County Wide Disposal.
It took several stormy meetings
to convince Tropical owner John
Armstrong to drop that proposal.
There was no opposition to the
showroom, but it had to be written
into the zoning code.
Mr. Armstrong, who attended
the March 28 hearing with his at-
torney Gary Baker, did not indi-
cate an interim use of the 2.7 acre
parcel that formerly housed an ice
plant.

Mr. Paulk had difficulty getting
his driver's license from his wallet,
and was unable to stand without
leaning on his car.
When asked whether he'd con-
sumed any alcohol or drugs, he
said he'd taken morphine and
Xanax.
He said he had several medical
conditions that affected his driving
ability.
After arresting Mr. Paulk, Dep.
Dawson searched his car and
found a cigarette pack under the
driver's seat.
There were six pieces of crack
in the cellophane around the pack.


On April Fool's Day, a Mac-
clenny man who was found passed
out behind the wheel of his truck
told a police officer his name was
"Lord Calvert" (a brand of whis-
key), then offered the deputy a
bribe ($5).

ped the ante, offering all the mon-
ey he had in his wallet, but to no

Attempts to

hide crack in

baby's diaper
A Sanderson couple were ar-
rested on drug charges March 30
after trying to hide crack in their
baby's diaper.
They also were charged with
felony child abuse.
A police informant got the
crack from Elijah Davis, 22, as
Bianca Davis, 22, sat in the pas-
senger seat holding her 10-month-
old boy.
Her four-year-old son and
three-year-old daughter were also
in the car.
The informant told police he
had sold his car to Mr. Davis, who
was paying him with crack.
After the informant returned to
investigators to hand over the
crack he'd been given, he told
them Mr. Davis had more in a
brown pill bottle.
Sheriff's Investigator David
Bryant arrested Mr. Davis as In-
vestigator Scotty Rhoden went to
the passenger side to speak with
Ms. Davis and saw the pill bottle
empty on the floor.
He asked Ms. Davis to let him
hold the baby, then checked the di-
aper and found several pieces of
crack.
In a videotaped interview, Ms.
Davis said she saw Mr.'Davis give
crack to the informant.
When he saw police coming, he
threw the pill bottle to her. She
emptied the crack into her hand,
ihen put it in the diaper.
Mr. Davis told police he had
been renting the car for crack, but
then decided'to buy it for cash and
crack.
Police found marijuana during a
search of the car.
In addition to child abuse,
charges include selling cocaine,
possession with intent to sell and
possession of marijuana, all of
which are felonies.


avail as he was arrested for DUI,
bribery, possession of marijuana,
possession drug paraphernalia, re-
fusal to submit to DUI testing, and
resisting an officer by refusing to
sign a citation.
He also was cited for illegally
parking in a handicapped space.
Responding to a report of a sus-
picious vehicle, Deputy Sgt. Adam
Faircloth went to the parking lot of
the Kangaroo convenience store
on East Macclenny Avenue at
12:56 am..
He found Mr. Lipnick passed
out in the driver's seat, his head
resting on his chest.
His window was rolled down,
so the officer called to him several
times, then rocked the truck but
was unable to wake him.
He then poked him in the chest
with his finger and Mr. Lipnick
eventually came to.
Dep. Faircloth asked his name,
to which Mr. Lipnick replied,
"How about Lord Calvert?"
Asked again for his name, he
fished a $5 bill from his pocket
and tried to hand it to the officer.
Asked again, he got out of the
truck, pulled out his wallet and
took all his cash out and handed it
to Dep. Faircloth, who asked if he
was trying to bribe him. ,
Mr. Lipnick responded, "Well...,"
then stuffed the money back into
his wallet and handed over his dri-
ver's license.
When asked if he'd been drink-
ing, he said, "I've had a couple of
beers..., let's say three."
The deputy then administered
roadside sobriety tests.
During the "balance-alphabet"
test, Mr. Lipnick got off to a good
start, reciting his ABCs correctly
until reaching "P." He then repeated
"L, M, N, 0, P" before giving up.
He failed the other tests, as
well.
He subsequently refused to take
a breath test and stopped answer-
ing questions.
Following his arrest, a search
turned up a partially smoked mari-
juana cigarette in his shirt pocket
and rolling papers in his car.

Facilities group seeks closer look Jazz Festival


at non-profit jail board in Glades this weekend


BY NANCY SZANTO
News Editor
A separate, non-profit corpora-
tion could shield the Baker County
Commission from liability in re-
paying a bond issue to build a new
jail, a committee was told in a con-
ference call with Glades County
officials April 4.
Before making a recommenda-
tion that the Baker County Com-
mission do a similar arrangement,
however, the Buildings and Facili-
ties Committee wants to view
Glades' documents creating its
corporation and the bond issue it-
self, along with other data from
special consultant Denise White.
Glades County Commission
Chairman Alvin Ward said Ms.
White, a retiree from the Florida
Department of Corrections, got in-
formation from a number of jails
and state prisons on per diem costs
to house and feed inmates.
Using those figures along with
the debt repayment for Glades'
$33 million bond issue plus sher-
iff's department staff time came to
an estimated $73 per day for each
boarded inmate, Mr. Ward explain-
ed.
Glades, a county about half the
size of Baker with only about
11,000 residents, anticipates board-
ing mostly immigration prisoners.
The $73 is considerably above
the current $48 per diem for US
Marshal's service prisoners board-
ed, at the Baker County jail.
Neither the Marshal's office or
INS will enter a contract or give a
firm guarantee to continue the
boarding arrangement. However,
Mr. Ward said he will continue to
push for a guarantee, which he
said some jails do have.
INS uses about 22 jails now,
and would like to cut that to about
three centrally located facilities by
encouraging construction like in
Glades County.
In an earlier Building and Facil-
ities Committee meeting on March
3, Dan Broome of the US Mar-
shal's service said his agency uses
six jails, two of them in Georgia.
A recent calculation of $6.51
cost pef'day for each boarded pris-
oner at the Baker County jail does
not include any staff costs except
for having a cook and nurse full
time instead of part time.
"It would cost us the same if we
had no federal prisoners," rea-
soned Sheriff Joey Dobson.
Glades County is including a
portion of jail staff and administra-
tive time into its estimate.
Similarly, a new jail sought by
Sheriff Dobson would be designed
so Baker County can expand the
federal boarder program which
currently brings nearly $1 million
in profit annually. A steady in-
crease in local inmates is squeez-
ing out the lucrative boarders from
the present facility behind the
courthouse.
So construction debt and staff
costs would be a necessary factor
in calculating new daily boarder
rates, especially since the federal
agencies require the sheriff's ad-
ministrative offices be on site, and
also likely would want a higher ra-
tio of jailers than is currently the
staffing policy at the Baker County
facility.
Besides reservations about go-
ing into long-range debt without a
firm guarantee from the US Mar-
shal to board prisoners here, the
county commission has so far also
balked at Sheriff Dobson's bid for
a site away from the courthouse.
The proximity has been a con-
venience in fact, part of the
courthouse expansion several
years ago factored in ease of mov-
ing prisoners to court hearings.
One 40 acre site on east US 90
favored by the sheriff fell through
because it contains wetlands. An-
other further east drew criticism
from Chamber of Commerce Di-
I rector Ginger Barberas a conflict-
ing use with the Enterprise East in-
dustrial complex.
A third at North Boulevard has
not been seriously considered be-
cause of the price.
The commission has offered an


alternative: building on a half block
the county already owns west of
the courthouse, and moving several
of its own offices to other sites to
free up space on the the west side
of the courthouse and jail block.
This possibility could later in-
volve acquiring other adjoining
properties like the half block hous-
ing Pin vicw Chevrolet to the
west, home',; to the cast and north
either s uowncrs want to sell or by


the eminent domain process.
Glades County has a 70 acre
site that will initially hold a 488
bed jail, with the expectation 350
spaces would be for INS inmates.
The facility would be expandable
with added pods to house 1300 in-
mates.
It was designed by Clemons
Rutherford, the same Tallahassee
architect firm which has done pre-
vious local jail projects and a pre-
liminary design for a new one.
The current jail is certified for
132 inmates but housed 159 on
the morning the committee met.
The private corporation scheme
comes with a few drawbacks, most
notably a higher interest rate if
the bond issue can be sold at all.
Glades County has not progressed
to testing a bond market, and fi-
nance agencies may not be willing
to accept the issue without the
guarantee of a government entity
backing repayment.
Mr. Ward said he anticipates an
interest rate up to 7.5% for a $33
million loan repaid over 30 years,
where it could be as low as 3%
with county backing.
"I want to do that, because the
president has not cut the INS bud-
get it's the only area that hasn't
been cut because Homeland Secu-
rity is the #1 priority right now,"
Mr. Ward said.
For comparison, in October
2003, Baker County got a quote on
a $10 million bond issue at about
5.4%. It would have cost $8.3 mil-
lion interest over a 25-year pay-
back.
Besides the higher interest, a
corporation would not completely
shield the county from harm. Al-
though it could not successfully be
sued to repay the bond issue, the
county could lose control of the
jail in a default sale to another en-
tity.
That sale could be to a private
company like the Wackenhut Cor-
poration or Emerald Corrections,
security companies which have al-
ready approached Glades County
about taking over its proposed new
jail.


However, if the facility sold for
less than the remaining debt, bond
holders would take the loss instead
of the county having to make up
the difference.
Glades does plan to operate the
jail through the corporation, which
will contract with Sheriff Stuart
Whidden for operations and
charge him a per diem rate for local
inmates.
"You just use the same money
you would ordinary budget him
for local prisoners," Mr. Ward ex-
plained.
If another sheriff did not want
the responsibility, jail operation
could be contracted to a private
company.
Mr. Ward said his county is
awaiting permits from the local
water management district and ex-
pects to break ground by August.
Baker County is already a land-
lord for the Macclenny Post Of-
fice, which commission Chairman
Julie Combs said is not a good
deal for the board.
Similar corporate bond issues
have been sold to build the Fraser
Hospital and Wells Nursing Home
complex in 1999-2000, although
that was sponsored by the Hospital
Authority for a lower interest rate;
and more recently by the school
board for the pre-kindergarten cen-
ter.
The hospital board has no rep-
resentation on the corporate Baker
County Medical Services, which
was already in place to manage the
hospital and nursing home.
The five members of the school
board are also the corporate board,
which was formed because state
law does not allow the district to
finance anything longer than five
years. The pre-k center loan will
take 15 years to repay.

Attacks her

spouse with

a beer bottle
A Glen St. Mary woman was
arrested March 29 for battery/do-
mestic violence after she tried to
hit her estranged husband with a
beer bottle.
Jessica Nipper, 23, also was
charged with disorderly conduct
and resisting an officer without vi-
olence.
Deputy Darrin Whitaker re-
sponded around 1:00 am to the
parking lot outside Williams Meat
on US 90 in Sanderson.
Ms. Nipper was among several
people arguing. He saw her walk-
ing toward her husband and anoth-
er man in an aggressive manner,
yelling, "I'll beat. your [freakin'
buttocks]...."
After she refused to calm down,
the officer grabbed her by the arm
as she continued to go after the
two men.
She pulled away, so he grabbed
her by both arms as she began
kicking at the men.
Dep. Whitaker put her on the
ground and handcuffed her.
Her husband said he and Ms.
Nipper are going through a di-
vorce, but she called to tell him to
meet her at the store.
When he arrived, he saw her
there with several men and be-
came angry. He.began yelling at
them, asking them if they "wanted
some."
That's when Ms. Nipper at-
tacked him with the beer.bottle.
In other domestic violence cas-
es:
Police filed a battery charge
April 2 against Lonnie Combs, 35,
of Sanderson.
He and the woman he lives with
were arguing around 1:3( am
when Mr. Combs pushed her then
punched her in the face.
She had swelling to her right
eve and dried blood under her
nose. :
P.'l1K'. were unable to immedi-
a.cll Ih cate Mr. Combs,.so filed

Sarms that hadn't been there the

BCHS sports teams back after spring break
A Clay County runner is thrown out at first during the Wildcats junior varsity game April 5 at Baker High. First baseman Jarrell Rodgers
gets the throw from second baseman Dustin Rowe, who went deep into the hole to snag the ground ball.


Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD


Sports is a funny thing. I can en-
joy a sporting match without hav-
ing any connection to it. I can
watch a sporting event dispassion-
ately and decide who I want to win
based on nothing at all.
That's the way I felt when I was
watching North Carolina defeat Il-
linois in the NCAA men's champi-
onship game Monday night.
I have a slight connection to
UNC a friend who teaches dra-
ma there and other friends who got
their degrees there. I was once ac-
cepted to grad school at UNC.
I have no connection to Illinois,
though I know a speech professor
there.
Naturally, you'd have thought
I'd go for the Tarheels, but we
Americans are at heart democratic.
The Tarheels have a championship
and the Illini don't. So, always the
patriot, I opted for democracy and
went with Illinois.
UNC proved to be five points
better in the 75-70 win, but I en-
joyed the contest. I didn't invest
much energymfh it, though.
Not so for the women's champi-
onship game. As I write this, I am
wearing a ridiculous-looking bear
hat that is essentially a ball cap
with a bear nose and fluffy ears. I
am decked out in green and gold.
"Why?" you might ask.
Because the fighting Lady Bears
of Baylor University are playing
tonight for the national title, and I


bleed green and gold the way
some folks bleed orange and blue.
Sic 'em Bears! (That's what
you say when you're a Baylor
Bear like I am.)
You see, I have a connection to
Baylor, and as a result I literally sat
on the edge of my seat Saturday
night as my Bears upset LSU.
The Lady Bears, who are riding
a 19-game win streak, came from
15 back to make it to the champi-
onship game.


My master's degree is from Bay-
lor, and I loved my time in Texas.
The Bears are also a team that
never wins in any major sporting
event. National champs in track
and tennis, yes, but football and
basketball, forget it.
So when a Baylor team is play-
ing for a national title, I'm there
emotionally.
The Bears are getting set to play
Michigan State, which most peo-
ple think will beat them handily.
Don't count out the Bears,
though.
I will be sending my mental
mojo straight down the satellite
link to Indianapolis. Will that help
them score a basket? Not a chance.
But that's the way it is when
