Impact

possible



yJuly
Local governments
coordinating effort


BY NANCY SZANTO
News Editor
Impact fees for new construction
in Baker County could be in place
by July 1.
In an April 13 workshop, the
county, Macclenny and school dis-
trict officials all pledged to proceed
with the enactment process, while
Glen St. Mary Mayor Juanice Pad-
gett said she will present the issue to
the Town Council.
A transportation feasibility study
has been completed by engineer
Frank Darabi for both the county
and Macclenny. It is likely he will
also add studies for both govern-
ments on the sheriff's department,
fire, rescue, parks and recreation.
The school district has authoriz-
ed its own study, due to be com-
pleted in mid May by Ken Crevel-
ing of Ponte Vedra Beach firm Ur-
banomics.
A transportation impact fee has
the most restrictions, and can be us-
ed only for enhancements rather
than ongoing maintenance.
But the sheriff, fire, rescue and
parks can justify the addition of
personnel, vehicles, office ma-
chines, etc., while the school dis-
trict may be able to use its revenue
toward school construction, buses
or a variety of other needs.

Steve Kennedy,. who started
work at Northeast Florida State
Hospital as a ward aide 35 years
ago, was selected this week from
among the field of seven candidates
as the facility's top administrator.
Mr. Kennedy, 53, was the clear
favorite among the 1100-plus em-
ployees at the mental hospital and
assumes the post vacated by the re-
tirement of long- ,
time administra-
tor Bud Stotler
in February.
Mr. Kennedy
has been the as- :
sistant chief at ., -, -
NEFSH for ad- -: .
ministratiVe ser-
vices since 1996, -
one of a trio of .
top posts directly
under the admin- I
istrator. As such,
he assumes the
top job from a
post most like
that of the one
he is moving in-
to.
His appoint-
ment by Sally
Cunningham,
overseer of men-
tal health pro-
grams for the
Department of Kennedy checks
Children and
Families, was also lobbied in Tal-
lahassee by a corps of locally elect-
ed officials and state representa-
tives.
The decision was made by Lucy
Hadi, secretary for DCF and Gover-
nor Jeb Bush. NEFSH at 553 beds

It will be a complex accounting
process, as the county collects for
itself, Glen St. Mary and the school
district, then remits the appropriate
amounts to the other entities.
The county will establish a sep-
arate escrow account for its reve-
nue, with records kept on the
amount for each type transporta-
tion, sheriff, fire, etc.
By law, the money must be used
within a "reasonable" time after
collection, generally established as
no longer than 10 years. But it can
not be bonded as repayment source
for a long term loan, since it is not
a certain annual revenue in the same
way as taxes or special assess-
ments.
For instance, the county has
been able to use its local option gas


tax as security for loans to pave
roads, and earlier used its fire spe-
cial assessment for new fire trucks.
Based on building permit figures
from the last couple of years, en-
gineer Darabi projects $4.9 million
over ten years at a $1500 levy -per
1000 square feet of construction.
The calculation figures a 5% an-
nual increase in permits, which Mr.
Darabi said is a good average fig-
uring the current boom market may
slow toward the end of a decade.
In a chart, he gave the city and
county a variety of possibilities:
3%, 5% and 10% increases in num-
ber of annual permits; $1200, $1500
and $1800 levies for transportation
improvements.
Mr. Darabi also distributed charts
of impact fees in nearby counties:


Clay school levies of $900
per unit for multi-family, $1660 for
mobile homes, $2000 for conven-
tional single family homes.
Flagler road and transporta-
tion, parks and recreation fees to-
taling $1509.75 for single homes,
$1472.48 per multi-unit.
Nassau transportation, recre-
ation, police and fire fees of
$1436.16 per multi-unit, $1931.86
for single family and "other" resi-
dences..
St. Johns transportation,
schools, parks and recreation, po-
lice, rescue, fire, public buildings
and administration fees at $1809
per multi unit, $2630 per single
home, $2089 for mobile homes.

"I'm very humbled, actually, and
very thankful for the support that so
many people showed over the past
few weeks," said Mr. Kennedy ear-
lier this week.

years.

At recent LSU student film festival


His horror flick


got prim,

BY BOB GERARD
Press Features
If Joshua Blackmon has his way,
it won't be long until his name will
be up on the big screen with Steven
Spielburg and Tim Burton.
Blackmon,
19, the son of
Steven and
Jeanette
Blackmon of ., .',
Glen St. Mary, '
is a theatre stu- .
dent at FCCJ
and had his
first film, The
Legend of Pe- 's
tit Jean, debut-
ed at the Lou-
isiana State 2 -
University 5
Film Festival t .::-.: "

ago. ""-""
The 34 min-
ute horror film Josh
debuted at the
Colonnade Theatre along with 100
other films of all varieties from as
far away as Los Angeles. Black-
mon's film had a prime time slot -
the 8 pm Friday showing ensured a
large crowd of film lovers. .
"I've been interested in film for
as long as I can remember," said
Blackmon. "But I really got involv-
ed in video as a sophomore'in Tom
Elledge's Video Production class
(at Baker High)."
He originally wanted to make
animated films, like Nightmare Be-
fore Christmas by his favorite di-
rector, Tim Burton. Burton's films,
such as Edward Scissorhands and
Big Fish, fascinate Blackmon.
"He is so inventive. He takes
something that appears normal, and
then twists it so audiences see it in
a completely different way." His
sophomore year at BCHS, Black-
mon got his chance to emulate his
hero when he got a video camera
and discovered his second interest -
drama.
He was cast in a traveling pro-
duction of Fried Green Tomatoes
that was to be performed at the Pe-
tit Jean Performance Festival in Ar-
kansas. BCHS was the only high
school invited to the prestigious
college festival, which is located on
top of a mountain at Petit Jean State
Park.

sions in the Park, Blackmon decid-
ed to make a short film based on
The Legend of Petit Jean. Petit Jean

on the mountain in the early 1800s,
and whose ghost supposedly walks

the mountain in search of her lover.
"I only had my camera for about
a month, so there wasn't a lot I
could do with it," said Blackmon.
Blackmon used his fellow BCHS
actors and filmed in and around the
park. The initial offering was Black-
mon's first attempt at filming a sto-
ry and he was learning as he went.
When he got home, he edited it
in video class, where he was learn-
ing to cut and piece films. The fol-
lowing year, when the high school
returned to Petit Jean, he added a
second part to the film, using a new
cast.
"By the second film, I had learn-
ed a lot. I was able to do different
shots and cleaner edits." Most of
the second film was shot at night
after a rain, which gave the film a
spookier edge.
Blackmon took a year off from
Petit Jean in 2003. Instead he audi-
tioned at the Florida Theatre Con-
ference and received a theatre
scholarship to FCCJ. In 2004, he
returned with the BCHS production
of Hobbit. Festival director Jay Al-
lison, of the University of North
Texas, heard about The Legend of
Petit Jean and invited Blackmon to
screen it at the festival.
Dr. Pat Suchy, a communications
professor and head of the Cinema
Club at LSU, saw the film and ask-
ed Blackmon to submit it to the
LSU Film Festival.
"I was really surprised and excit-
ed. I knew I would have a lot of

work to do to get it ready."
Blackmon filmed the last in-
stallment at the festival. "I had a
really good cast this year, and they
had a lot more input in the film-
ing."
He also experimented with new
filming techniques and different
camera skills. The result was a
much improved Part 3.
When Blackmon returned to
Glen St. Mary, the work really be-
gan as he started the hard task of
getting the film ready to send off
to a major college film festival.
"I took all three of the films and
completely re-edited them. I also
decided that I needed to add origi-
nal music to the film. -Luckily'I
have some very talented friends."
Blackmon called on UF stu-
dents Chris Recinella and Diane
Villanueva, and Jessica Sadding-
ton of Wells College to score the
film. BCHS student Dylan Gerard
collaborated with Blackmon to
write and perform a song for the
ending credits.
After several months of editing,
The Legend of Petit Jean began to
change from "something to do
while we were stuck up on the
mountain" to a real film. In Febru-
ary he mailed the final copy to
LSU, where it was screened and
given a top time slot.
Blackmon traveled to Baton
Rouge last weekend to view the
finished product. "I was really ex-
cited and very nervous," he recalls.
"I really was anxious to see it on
the big screen."
.The festival, which is in its
sixth year at LSU, was held at the
200 seat Colonnade Theatre and
the films were shown on the the-
atre's 20' by 20' screen, with full
digital sound.
There was a wide variety of
films in many categories, from fea-
tures to horror films to music vid-
eos and odd experimental pieces.
Blackmon's film went up against
films from production companies,
films with the backing of the Hu-
manities Council, and directors
working professionally in the film
industry.
"I was really pleased," said
Blackmon after the screening of
The Legend of Petit Jean received
enthusiastic applause. "People
laughed where they were supposed
to and seemed to 'get it.' I also
learned a lot from watching the


other films."
Blackmon was particularly pleas-
ed that many of the techniques he
saw in the professional films were
ones he had incorporated into The
Legend of Petit Jean. "It was a real
learning experience. I was doing a
lot of the same things the other
filmmakers were doing, and I saw
ways to make my films more aes-
thetically pleasing."
Blackmon's filmmaking has
given him a new appreciation of
how films are made, and he looks
at them differently when he goes
to a movie. "Sometimes I think if I
didn't know how a movie was


done, I would enjoy it more."
At present, Blackmon, a former
BCHS drama Hall of Fame win-
ner, is deciding whether to contin-
ue studying theatre or film. The
freshman has another year at FCCJ
before he has to make that deci-
sion.
He is also considering submit-
ting the film to several other fes-
tivals, including a couple of horror
film festivals in Chicago and in
Michigan.
In the meantime, he will contin-
ue his theatre classes and work on
ideas for a new feature.
Watch out, Steven Spielburg.


Impact fees near certain


(from page one)
The city and county boards pon-
dered whether the fees should be
collected "up front" as part of the
subdivision platting process, or
when construction permits are ac-
quired.
The latter was'chosen for two
reasons: as Mr. Darabi noted, con-
struction is when the real "impact"
takes effect; and by assessing the
developer at platting time, the gov-
ernments would lose the opportu-
nity to levy on approved subdivi-
sions that are largely undeveloped
so far.
Even though they appear lucra-
tive, impact fees will not adequate-
ly address existing problems. For
instance, Mr. Darabi's assessment
estimates $4.8 million in trans-
portation improvements already
needed.
Both the city and county have
targeted North Lowder Street as a
primary goal for improvement. It
is a county road, but the focus of
much potential growth annexing
into Macclenny to gain water and
sewer access. South Lowder is al-
so becoming increasingly popular
both for new construction and as a
bypass road.
Another major residential growth
point is along Ode Yarbrough
Road a few miles north of Glen St.
Mary. The Curtis family of Gaines-
ville has already been developing
950 acres in a series of subdivi-
sions, and Adar Development LLP
of Miami has plans for 5845 acres.
The county could seek extras like
improvements to existing roads or
other amenities like land or actual


construction of a new school from
those developers or from others
throughout the county in return
for approval of their projects.
Mr. Darabi has also prepared a
feasibility report on a central sew-
er system for that north county
area. The county needs the system
to develop its St. Mary's Shoals
Park, but the plant could be ex-
panded to handle nearby subdivi-
sions and other residential devel-
opments.
The cost would range from
$2.97 million to $5.08 million, de-
pending on the number of homes
to be connected. Piping to the sub-
divisions and any needed pump
stations would be the responsibili-
ty of the developer. Most would
likely opt for the expense, since
they could carve a subdivision into
smaller lots.
A companion water treatment
plant would cost about $1.4 mil-
lion,

Cops end

a standoff;

with man

(from page one)
Deputy Tony Norman arrived at
the scene on Boyce Road and took
cover with Deputy Crews. Each
had drawn their weapons.
They called several times to Mr.
Field to lower his gun, which he
eventually did.
He then held his arms open and
began walking toward the officers,
shouting, 'Go ahead and shoot me,
you are going to .have to kill me...
Go ahead, shoot, shoot."
He then sat in the middle of the
road, placed the gun to his head
and began to sob.
He requested to speak with
Chief Gerald Gonzalez, who arriv-
ed a short time later.
They spoke for several minutes.
At one point, Mr. Field asked,
"How are you going to keep my
wife from going to prison?"
The officer replied that they
would discuss the situation after
he got rid of the gun and surren-
dered.
Mr. Field eventually dropped
the magazine from the handgun,
ejected a round from the chamber,
and tossed the weapon aside.
He then became combative
again, approaching the deputies,
telling them "you are going to
have to fight me."
When Mr. Field turned around
and began walking toward the
gun, Deputy Norman tackled him
from behind and the others helped
handcuff him.
The officer needed treatment
for two-inch cut to his forehead.

Steep impact fees


still will not offset


development costs


ON THE

RECORD
, j!JLL S3 a iwiAd


*


Impact fees are coming to Bak-
er County this summer. And to
most of us, this seems like a good
thing making the "new guys" pay
for what they're inflicting on us.
They are, however, coming at
about the right time to ensure the
county doesn't go bankrupt trying
to accommodate major residential
growth.
In a nice show of solidarity, Bak-
er County, Macclenny, Glen St.
Mary and the school district all ap-
pear ready to adopt fees that will
help handle some of the many im-
provements that will be needed in
the next few years.
Note the words "some" and
"help." As engineer Frank.Darabi
told the Macclenny Commission
April 12, there is no way impact
fees will cover all the costs our
new neighbors are going to bring.
"If you pass along the true costs,
the impact fees would be so large
they would stop growth," Mr. Da-
rabi said.
Of course, many people would
like to do just that sort of a "let
me in, then close the borders" atti-
tude.
There is some validity to their
stance, since they may have al-
ready fled growth in their original
communities for Baker County's
rural character. However, many of
those folks both long time resi-
dents and newcomers are bene-
fitting mightily from all the devel-
opment. Their land is selling for
far more than they ever dreamed
pos.-.ibk -.- -
So War. there has been no discus-
sion of possible opposition from
developers. Any misgivings they
have may be blunted somewhat by
the plan to assess at the building
permit stage rather than at subdivi-
sion platting. Thus the fees will not
hit them directly and expensive-
ly before they even get started.
Some may complain the fees
will stall lot sales and govern-
ment officials may have their own
concern about slowing growth of
the property tax rolls, or that their
children will have to pay perhaps-
$3000-4000 more for a home than
without the fees.
Actually, that's a relatively small
sum rolled into a 30 year mort-
gage, and unlikely to severely im-
pact most home buyers.
So impact fees will have the full
blessing of those who otherwise
would have to help pay for im-
provements via property taxes, in-
creases in sales or gasoline taxes,
and special assessments.
More than impact fees are being
considered. Both the city' and
county have already increased a
variety of fees from plan review to
utility security deposits, and will
continue to monitor others to en-
sure they are not losing money on
staff time and other office costs.
Macclenny is assessing how far
out it wants to-extend utilities,
Baker County is pondering crea-
tion of sewer and water treatment
plants'in its new St. Mary's Shoals

Lighthearted lookat more new


possible mottos for the states


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


My sister sent me a hilarious e-
mail the other day with sugges-
tions for new state mottos. I have
always felt that state mottos, like
state license tags, do not in any
way, shape or form really indicate
what the state is all about.
I have culled a few of my favor-
ites from that list and added many
of my own. I think we need to get
a campaign going to get these offi-
cially accepted.

TAL in capital punishment

Offenders a

hidden peril

Dear Editor:
Kudos to you and The Baker
County Press for your article last
week concerning sex offenders in
our area.
In light of the two recent tra-
gedies that happened downstate, I
hope this will become a regular
feature in your newspaper. I also
hope the sheriff will continue to
place those signs in the yards of
those who live herein Baker
County.
Parents and grandparents should
be aware of the hidden dangers to
our community, and if your article
embarrassed those who were
named, too bad! They committed
these '".., lnJ. .i,. crimes against
children, and if they choose to live
here in Baker County, everyone;
should be aware of their presence.
Once again, thank you for the
public service that you have done
for our community.

Offended

by article

on predator

Dear Editor:
I am writing in regard to your
recent article on sexual predators
and offenders in our area, and
more specifically, your targeting of
Dwayne Mitchell.
What deeply concerns me is
that your reporter Michael Rinker
was bound and determined to cre-
ate a story, one way or another,
about a man who is paying his debt
to society. He has been released
from prison and is under constant
supervision by the authorities. He
has done no wrong since leaving
prison.
The authorities had every legal
right to be on Mr. Mitchell's prop-
erty; Mr. Rinker did not. When
Mr. Mitchell declined to be inter-
viewed or photographed (I can
understand why), Mr. Rinker
moved to the street to get his pic-
tures.
We all were made aware Mr.
Mitchell was in our presence three
years ago via news articles and the
sign posted in his yard. I have
known him since his release when
he came to our church.
I also know the man who has
employed him for three years. He
has nothing but good things to say
about Dwayne and his work per-
formance. Law enforcement agen-
cies are doing their job to see that
he is adhering to the conditions of
his probation.
I'm sure Mr. Rinker will say
Dwayne had the opportunity to
share, all that. I say he knew the
man had not broken the law, but
that didn't matter. He singled him
out by putting his picture front
page center, knowing that would
get attention.
That is sensational journalism at
its worst.. Listing his name with
the other sexual offenders should
have been sufficient.
As someone who goes into pris-
ons each week with ABBA
Ministries, 'I have seen the faces
and heard the many stories of
criminal behavior, including, sex
crimes. We never condone any
criminal behavior and believe it
should be punished. We also
believe the \ ay to keep them from
re-offending is true rehabilitation
and mentoring.
Ex-offenders are always going
to be with us. We can help to reha-
bilitate or help them to return to
prison. The choice is ours.,

Arrested with a trifecta of illegal drugs


Police arrested a Macclenny
man April 13 for felony possession
of cocaine, marijuana and a nar-
cotic.
Jonathan Stafford, 19, was al-
legedly in possession of 8.2 grams
of powder cocaine, 16.8 grams of
marijuana and about 25 ecstasy
pills.
Investigator David Bryant told
homeowner Jerry Stafford that
he'd made some drug purchases
from people living at the residence
on Tom Wilkerson Road.
Mr. Stafford said he knew noth-
ing about it, and gave police per-
mission to search the house.
Investigator Scotty Rhoden
found a liquor bottle bag on top of
John Stafford's dresser.
Inside were the cocaine and ec-
stasy. John Stafford later turned
over the marijuana, which was in a
baggie hidden in his shoe.
In other felony drug cases:
Marquez Baker, 19, of Mac-
clenny was arrested April 13 for
possession with intent to sell mari-
juana.
Mr. Baker was a passenger in a
car parked on Grissholm Street
when police were making a nearby
arrest.
The officers noticed the driver


Amber and Todd Ferreira, owners of the local funeral home, shake hands with Florence
Fraser, whose late husband founded the business they purchased this week.


Competitor buys out

Fraser Funeral Home


A local funeral director who
spun off on his own less than two
years ago announced earlier this
week he has purchased one of
Baker County's two remaining
competitors, effective April 18.
V. Todd Ferreira and Ferreira
Enterprises Inc., which operates a
funeral home under the same name
in a recently renovated church on
Lowder St. in Macclenny, purchas-
ed Fraser Funeral Home on South
6th.
The purchase for an undis-
closed price was made from Al-
derwoods Group, a Cincinnati-
based firm that owns more than
700. funeral homes and 140 ceme-
teries in the US and Canada.
Alderwoods and its financially
troubled predecessor the Canada-
based Loewen Group had operated
Fraser under its original name
since October, 1994.
The Fraser family sold out to
Loewen not long after the death of
Warren G. Fraser in 1993. Guerry
Funeral Home on US 90 in east
Macclenny, the area's other funeral
home, continues as a privately
owned entity. Owner Bill Guerry
also operates one in Lake City.
Mr. Ferreira, 34, a native of the
Arlington section of Jacksonville
\ here 'lie began in the funeral'
business as a teenage cemetery la-
borer, originally came to the area
in 1995 as an employee of Mr.
Guerry.
He and another former Guerry
employee purchased Suwannee
Funeral Home in Live Oak in
2002 and Mr. Ferreira bought out
the partner a year ago.
Alderwoods, which is emerging
from a bankruptcy and changed its
name in 2002, spun off a group of
47 funeral homes and cemeteries
including Fraser. Most are in
southern states, including others in
Florida.
The former company skidded

Arrest for

abusing girl
A Tennessee man living with
his sister in Glen St. Mary was ar-
rested April 14 for molesting her
eight-year-old daughter.
Brian Vanderpool, 31, of Mount
Pleasant, Tenn., was charged with
sexual assault by an adult on a
child, which is a capital felony.
His sister, who lives with her
boyfriend, reported the molesta-
tion to police after her daughter
told her about two incidents that
had occurred.
The girl indicated he had fon-
dled her and forced her to perform
oral sex.
Mr. Vanderpool denied the alle-
gations, both to his sister and po-
lice. He said he was just tickling
the child.

on suspicion of selling drugs.
When they arrested Mr. Brown,
they noticed the aroma of marijua-
na in the car.
They asked Mr. Baker to step
out, and when he did they saw a
baggie containing several baggies
with pot on the seat where he'd
been sitting.
Roderick Reed, 26, of Mac-
clenny was arrested April 15 after
he sold crack cocaine to a confi-
dential police informant.
The informant paid $80 for
some "butt naked," a street term
for crack.
The informant turned over .5
gram of crack to investigators and
identified Mr. Reed by name.
Videotape confirmed it.
He was charged with possession
and with sale, both within 1000 of
a school.
Malfunctioning tail lights led
to the arrest April 16 of a husband
and wife for possession of cocaine


and marijuana.
Deputy Michael Lagle stopped
a car driven by Jack Harmon, 28,
at 4:16 a.m. on CR 228 near the
interstate.
Kathryn Harmon, 23, was a
passenger in the car.
A computer check turned up an
outstanding warrant for Mr. Har-

Mr. Harmon said he melts co-
caine in the spoon and injects it.
When Mrs. Harmon was asked
to get out of the car, the officer
found a pipe with marijuana
residue on the floor near her seat.
He then found a crack pipe be-
hind the passenger seat.

You've heard about it.


Now be a part of it.


This is it. The Federal tobacco marketing quota system is over. No more plant-
ing restrictions. No more marketing cards. No more price support loans.
Instead, the USDA's new Tobacco Transition Payment Program will provide
money to eligible tobacco quota holders and producers to help in this transi-
tion that ends the old system. But sign up now or you will not get a 2005 payment.


SDid you own a farm as of October 22, 2004, with a 2004 basic
marketing quota?
) Are you an owner, operator, landlord, tenant, or sharecropper who
shared in the risk of producing tobacco anytime between 2002 and
2004?

) Do you grow Flue-cured, Burley, Fire-cured, Dark air-cured, Virginia
sun-cured, or Cigar filler/binder tobacco?


Please sign up between March 14, 2005, and June 17, 2005,
at your local USDA Service Center.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS Thursday, April 21, 2005 Page Six


Another

delay irks

neighbors

off Estate
One rezoning was rescheduled
for a second time, despite the an-
noyance of neighbors planning to
protest during the April 18 meet-
ing of the Baker County Commis-
sion.
A second rezoning was approv-
ed despite strong opposition from
two neighbors, and a third sailed
through with no comment.
Judging from the crowd, John
Le Nguyen's plans to build du-
plexes on Estates Street leading to
the Macclenny II subdivision is in
for a rough public hearing which
is now scheduled for 6 pm on May
3 because errors by The Press and
the county planning and zoning of-
fice scuttled earlier hearings.
The crowd of nearly 60 packed
into the commission meeting room
was annoyed, and Joyce Welch
suggested the commission should
repay the cost of flyers distributed
throughout the neighborhood.
"No, ma'am. We're incurring the
cost of readvertising. We apologize
for your inconvenience," respond-
ed Chairman Julie Combs.
Despite the large turnout, attor-
ney Terry Brown recommended
the delay, saying the errors could
give Mr. Le Nguyen a reason to
appeal if the commission rules
against him.
In a hearing tabled from April 5
so commissioners could visit the
site, the board granted a bid by J.
Wayne Mobley to put three rental
trailers near his existing mobile
home park on SR 121 South.
Fred Mallory and George Cool-
er unsuccessfully argued against
rezoning on the 1.88 acre parcel,
saying it violates the zoning rules
they bad to follow.
Mr. Mallory also noted he has
had to call law enforcement when
children, from the trailer park tres-
passed, damaged his pasture fence.
and shot BBs at tiis horses. .,

Seven injured, vehicles demolished in downtown Glen
The Florida Highway Patrol says an improper lane change by the 2001 Mitsubishi (background) in this photo caused a chain reaction
accident at US 90 and Hilliard Road just after 8:00 am on April 18. Trooper Brian Lamb said Lanore T West, 18, of Sanderson was east-
bound in the right lane when she sideswiped the 2001 Hyundai (center) driven by Tanya R. Siemering, 30, also of Sanderson. The second
vehicle veered sharply into the path of the westbound 2002 Ford (foreground) driven by Robert T Fishback, 42, of Jacksonville. All the dri-
vers were injured, as were Reginald Hayes, 8, a passenger in the West vehicle; Charles Siemering, 3,Jessica Ludlow, 1, and Kaylee Knight,
6, in the Hyundai. The more seriously injured were taken by helicopter to Shands Jacksonville and the others to Fraser Hospital. Trooper
Lamb says charges pend against the first driver.


"I see this as intrusive to people
already living there, although I
was told the "grand plan" for the
area is a move to commercial. The
rules have been changed on those
of us who have been there. Any-
time someone comes in and wants
to make money, he comes here for
a zoning change and you ap-
prove it," Mr. Mallory said.
"Twenty years ago, it was one
home per acre, so why can he put
three on.1.88 acres?" agreed Mr.
Cooler.
Mr. Mobley said he has cleaned
the trailer park up,considerably
since buying it, and was unaware
the children had been trespassing
and bothering neighbors.
"I bought a distressed property
with a number of junk vehicles,
debris, I demolished an old
house."
He agreed to move on trailers
no older than five years, including
replacements in the existing park.
The vote went through two cy-
cles, first with a motion from Fred


Raulerson and second by Mark
Hartley to deny the rezoning. That
failed on a three-two vote, and'a
new motion from Gordon Crews,
seconded by Alex Robinson, drew
Chairman Combs' vote for a ma-
jority approval.
The third rezoning was for Yo-
landa Ray, whose mother gave her
a half acre off Annie Mae Paige
Rd. in Sanderson. The existing 7.5
,acre agriculture zoning had to be
clianrLd to half acre residential so
she could get a mobile home
move-on permit.

FREE "LIVING TRUST" SEMINAR


Find out how you may be able to

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly -

Without Probate Fees & Minimum Estate Taxes


If you own a home... or have assets worth at least $100,000... you owe it
to yourself- and your family to get the facts on living trusts. If you
think you're protected with a simple Will... think again... In many cases
a Will guarantees your estate will go through probate, which means your
family will not be able to take possession of your estate for. many
months or even years!

Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insurance and retirement
plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2011, your family may owe estate taxes


which could amount to 41-55% of the value of your estate. This means
that your family may have to sell some assets just to pay the estate taxes!

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate taxes.'Plus, a
living trust may protect your estate if you become incapacitated during
your lifetime by avoiding a guardianship. This means your estate may be
managed as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit. To
find out more about the benefits of living trusts, attend one of these
free seminars:

PENSEE

CHERYL PINGEL


I recently took a trip which gave
me the opportunity to be "served."
I stayed in a motel and ate out. I.
went to the tourist attractions and
stopped at gas stations. All of these
make their living providing servic-
es for others, but the spirit of ser-
vanthood can't be found in any of
them.
Service industries offer many
nice things for their customers,
providing amenities that will make
their visit enjoyable, but it is about
business with an eye always on the
bottom line of profit. True servant-
hood has a much deeper profit
than money and requires a much
different mentality.
One day, the Lord Jesus began
to make comparisons between the
Pharisees and scribes (religious
leaders of the day) and those who
were Jesus' disciples. He was teach-
ing them to reject the titles of hon-
or, like Rabbi, Father and Master,


Deep appreciation

The family of Bernice Craw-
ford would like to thank everyone
for the kindness shown us during
our recent loss: The staff at Wells
Nursing Home for the love and care
during- her stay there. The friends,
neighbors and churches for the
visits, cards, food and flowers. To
David, Sherrie and Tonya for the
music. Pastors David Thomas and
Mark Woods for the comforting
words before, during and after the
service.
To Mr. Guerry and staff, for their
consideration and help in trying to
make things easier for us. To Sher-
iff Dobson and his deputies for
the respect and courtesy, shown.
More than anything, we thank all
of you for the many prayers in our
behalf. This helped us very much.
May God bless you all is our pray-

because they were all brothers and
sisters under God, and then he said,
"But he that is greatest among you
shall be your servant. And whoso-
ever shall exalt himself shall be
abased; and he that shall humble
himself shall be exalted." (Mat-
thew 23:11-12)
True servanthood has a reward
greater than any other, but the con-
cept is so far removed from our un-
derstanding it is almost non-exis-
tent. Being a true servant requires
an exclusive focus on the needs of
the individual being served and a
willingness to perform whatever is
necessary to provide for the need.
The minute any other motive enters
the scene, servanthood no longer
exists.
In our culture, service-oriented
industries often remind their em-
ployees to focus on the customer
and teach classes in customer rela-
tions, but the focus is on customer
satisfaction for the purpose of in-
creased sales, rather than on cus-
tomer satisfaction for the sake of
the pure happiness and contentment
of the customer.
Jesus taught his disciples the

provided only by servants, and he
ultimately died on the cross.
Jesus' model of servanthood did-
n't mean being a doormat under
some bully, or providing everything
the individual thought he wanted.
Jesus' model began with a firm un-
derstanding of who He was, and
ours must do the same. Jesus was
the Son of God and we are the
children of God. True servanthood
only begins by embracing the
choice to serve not humanity, but
the Living Creator of the universe.
It is this decision and focus that
will make serving humanity possi-
ble.
It is only as we rest secure in the
provision and wisdom of God that
our thoughts can turn to the needs
of others. Until then, other motives
will always creep into everything
we do and we lose the reward of
servanthood. Isn't it just like God
to turn everything upside down
and provide the greatest reward to
those whose only desire is to serve?

Thanks so much
I would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank the residents of Baker
County for giving me a chance to-
do a job, and do it well.
Since I began the job at Con-
nie's Kitchen in January 1990, I
have come to know a lot of people,
if not by name, but by what they
have for breakfast or lunch. I have
made so many friends and I have
watched as parents brought their
children in and now I see them
with their grandchildren.
It's been great. I have really en-
joyed serving the county and oth-
ers for the past 15 years, but as
time moves on, I must too. Friday,
April 22, will be my last day of
employment. I hope those who
know me will miss me as much as
I will miss them.
THANK YOU EVERYONE,

In hopes that a recent patch job
fixed the leaks, the Baker County
Commission decided April 18 to
hold off on putting a new metal
roof on the Agriculture Center.
The board only recently was told
of the leaks, which had occupants
placing buckets during every rain
storm and mopping up afterward.
There was concern the intruding
water would ruin sheetrock and
cause mold.
"I went up there, and the hurri-
canes had broken some shingle
tabs. They hadn't been replaced or
any patching done. So the mainte-
nance crew came in to patch and
close those exposed shingle joints,"
explained Commissioner Fred
Raulerson, a former building in-
spector for both the county and
Macclenny.
"So now I believe we should
hold off and see if the repairs
worked," said County Manager Ja-
son Griffis. He had gotten two
quotes for material on a replace-
ment metal roof. The work was to
be done by an inmate crew super-
vised by maintenance assistant
Wendell Ray Combs.
A $14,671 quote from SETEL
was complete, but another at
$13,981 had to be calculated from
Gulf Coast's offer that Manager
Griffis said included only about
3/4 of the total area to be recover-
ed.
Although SETEL is higher, the
company gets a 5% "offset" for
being locally based if Gulf Coast
was even considered since the
quote was incomplete.
The county plans to reroof a
number of government buildings
with the metal covering, and has
so far completed the building and
zoning offices on North Third
Street. Others are to be scheduled
as money is available or as seri-
ous problems make it necessary.
After some discussion with
Trane Air Conditioning representa-
tive Walt Herndon, the commis-
sion decided to call for bids on
maintenance at both the court-
house and Health Department.
There is some urgency, since
the contract expired March 1 at the
Health Department, and the court-


house maintenance pact ends May 1.
If the Health Department is un-
happy with Trane's service,, the
board is unaware of it. However,
there have been continuous prob-
lems at the courthouse, including

Macclenny's purchase of four homes may have

enhanced prospects for $700,000 drainage grant


Macclenny's purchase of four
homes in the northeast city last
year nudged its Community De-
velopment Block Grant applica-
tion into the approved range.
"It made the difference in get-
ting funded for the $700,000 grant,
which will have as its goal to im-
prove drainage in that area," City
Manager Gerald Dopson explained
at the April 12 Macclenny Com-
mission meeting. "We can antici-
pate getting a FEMA grant also,"
Mr. Dopson added.
Without the purchase, Macclen-
ny's application would ranked next
to last in the CDBG funding com-
petition, grant consultant Dick Ed-
wards advised in an April 8 letter.
With the extra 63.7 points, the city
ranked 17th among 37 applications.
It is also possible the city may
get additional funds from the St.
Johns River Water Management
District to purchase property to the
north for a drainage path that even-
tually then turns west to the St.
Mary's River.
The city paid a total of $318,500
to purchase the homes, three fac-
ing North First Street,.the other on
Stansell. All had flooded several
times, and one had been elevated
using a previous grant.
It was never established what
tipped the poor drainage always
a problem in that city quadrant -
into flooded homes. Possibilities
included a flurry of new homes
constructed on ground that previ-
ously absorbed water, silting of the
drainage path, and covering.a deep
ditch along North Second Street.
\ The buildings were sold and are
in the process of being moved to
other sites. The land will be exca-
vated for a stormwater retention
pond, joining two others at North
Second and East Shuey streets
across from the jail and on the
Fraser Hospital campus.
The commission renewed the
home purchase loan with Mercan-
tile Bank, along with another
$16,000 note used to finance the
purchase of fire station equipment,
and a third at $8000 for construc-
tion at Heritage Park.
The process of grant approval
also required a profit and loss state-
ment from engineer Frank Darabi
of Gainesville. Of $150,189 to be
paid to his firm for engineering on
the grant-funded project, Mr. Da-
rabi claims $6539.46 or 4.35% as
profit.
In other business April 12, Mr.
Darabi just completed a transpor-
tation needs study to justify impact
fees on new home and commercial
construction, and is in the process
of another study on where the city


will be willing to extend water and
sewer lines.
"We'll develop a master plan on
the capacity we have, the areas
we're willing to serve, and our fees.
Then the developers can build on
their own or pay our prices and
meet our conditions. This commu-
nity should not be subsidizing
growth; it should be making mon-
ey," Mr. Darabi advised.
Developers can install "pocket"
treatment plants for either water or
sewage treatment, but the cost is
high and the environmental require-
ments stiff. The tradeoff is the de-
veloper is able to sell smaller sub-
division lots with municipal or pri-
vate utility plants than with indivi-
dual wells and septic tanks.
Building inspector Claude Bag-
well explained the process of en-
suring construction meets city and
state codes and fielded a com-
plaint from Commissioner B.J.
Cannbn on a development being
built near his north Macclenny
home.
"I can hear the nail gun and
they're only doing three per shin-
gle. There are supposed to be four.
I know the contractor is responsi-


ble, but the city is responsible to
the buyer that things are done right.
I believe we're missing the boat on
quality and integrity," Mr. Cannon
said.
"I'll meet you there and we'll all
go up on the roof and check," Mr.
Bagwell promised.
However, zoning coordinator
Watson Goodwin said the problem
may already be remedied. "The
contractor was told and the sub-
contractor is coming back in," he
explained.
In a companion report, code in-
spector Roger Yarbrough said 185
violation citations were issued in
2004. Most problems never make
it to the citation stage, he said, but
are instead resolved with a visit to
the violator.
There were 64 new home per-
mits taken out in 2002, 55 in 2003
and 64 in 2004.
Other department heads will be
scheduled for reports to the com-
mission.
The city has received $107,046
in reimbursements for last fall's
hurricanes. The money is coming
from insurance companies, the
state and the Federal Emergency

The Lady Wildcats softball
team put together a three-game

Clay County, one of the area's top

The April 15 win served as pay-
back for the Blue Devils' victory
by an identical score last month at
Baker High.
The Cats turned two hits and a
Devils' error into a pair.of first-in-
ning runs. Kassie Crews' triple
was the key play.
Pitcher Ashley Norman made
the runs stand up, giving up just a
single unearned run in the game
while striking out eight. She walk-


ed five, but yielded just three hits.
The previous day, the Cats beat
Fernandina Beach 7-4 at home on
Youth Night.
The Pirates opened the scoring
with a first-inning run, but the Cats
put the game away with five in the
third and two more in the fourth.
In the third, the girls strung to-

single drove in Sarah Bradley, who
had doubled, and Brooke Arzie,
who reached on a single and stole
second. Jessica Jenkins doubled
home Crews, then later stole home.
Ashley Norman singled, and pinch
runner Brittany Hanson later scor-
ed on a passed ball.

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD


If you're a serious NFL fan, this
weekend is one of the highlights of
your life. If you're only a casual
NFL fan, you're probably still
looking at the weekend with inter-
est. If you're not an NFL fan, you
probably haven't a clue what I'm
talking about.
The NFL draft starts this week-
end with much fanfare and endless
hype on ESPN. Team officials have
been carefully weighing the pluses
and weaknesses of all the players
coming out of college and trying
to decide who will fit best.
Draft weekend has taken on the
aspect of a military exercise. If you
were to look into any NFL confer-
ence room and could see past the
forest of laptops, you would see
that all the major players have
been gi en background checks the
FBI would be proud of, and a list
of statistics rivaling the IRS tax
codes.
E\ er. thing is charted. What a
pla er will do in a particular situa-
tion, how they react when their
team is in a third and long. What
their times are in the 40 and the
100. Even the percentage of body
fat is charted. I wouldn't be sur-
prised to learn the directors of
player personnel could tell you fa-


vorite color, breakfast cereal and
movie of the top 50 players.
It's gotten to be a little ridicu-
lous. But then, most things involv-
ing sports have lost all sense and
sensibility. When college recruit-
ers are visiting junior high school
gyms to scout the top seventh and
eighth graders, why be surprised at
anything the pros do to get an edge?
The Jaguars have had a spotty
record with regard to the draft. In
the early days of the franchise,
they were the masters of the draft,
pulling in players like Tony Bosel-
li. But about five years ago, they
hit a dry patch. Fernando Bryant,
Renaldo Wynn and other top picks
didn't pan out. They are still play-
ing professionally for other teams,
but they didn't fit as Jaguars.
More recently, Marcus Stroud
and John Henderson have been
outstanding choices, while Byron
Leftwich has the appearance of a
good pick.
. The San Francisco 49ers have
the first pick in this year's NFL
draft, and there is a lot of specula-
tion as to who will be their top
choice. The players expected to go
in the top four include a pair of
quarterbacks, a wide receiver and
a defensive back.


to deliver all on a consistent basis,
rather than two of three.
Well, on April 18, he got every-
thing he asked for... except for a
win.
Led by pitcher John Barrett, the
Wildcats surrendered just two runs
to Middleburg at the Baker High
field.
They committed just one error,
which didn't figure in the scoring.
They cracked six'hits, and had
four runners in scoring position.
Unfortunately, that's as far as
the runners got, as the Cats fell to
the Broncos 2-0.
It's now time to discuss a sub-
category timely hitting.
Reed said he is still optimistic
about the Cats' chances for a good
showing in the district tournament.
"Hey, it's high school baseball.
You never know what's going to
happen."
The Cats' next two games are at
home April 21 against Episcopal
and April 26 against Hilliard.
Districts start May 2 and will be
played in West Nassau.




My guess would be the Niners
will choose either Utah quarter-
back Alex Smith or Aaron Rogers
of Cal. Either one could turn into
franchise players or real duds.
There's never any way of telling
until they come up against an NFL
defense.
Rogers is from the better con-
ference, facing the likes of USC,
UCLA, Arizona and Washington.
He has good numbers, passing for
over 2500 yards last season. He is
strong and a pure passer. Cal runs
the same style offense as San
Francisco, so that's a plus.
Smith is just a winner. Under
Urban Meyer, he was 21-1 over
two seasons and has passed for al-
most 3000 yards as a starter. The
other thing he has going for him is
that he is a agile runner and a real-
ly tough competitor. Rogers may
go ahead of him, but I would be
surprised if he's a top five pick.
Biletnikoff Award winner Bray-
Ion Edwards of Michigan probably
won't be tapped by the 49ers, but
he is easily the best receiver in the
draft and will go very early. Antrel
Rolle, the Miami defensive back,
should be the first defender to go.
These are all coulda-shouldas,
however, and there is never any re-
al way of telling what the folks in
the front offices of these NFL teams
will really do. We'll have to wait
until Saturday to find out.


The Pirates got a two-out, three-
run double in the sixth to close out
the scoring.
After the Clay game, the Lady
Cats returned home April 18 to
beat Baldwin 4-3.
Trailing 3-2 into the fifth in-
ning, the Cats got a two-out triple
from Bradley, who scored on an
error to tie the game.
. They took the lead in the sixth
with another two-out triple, this
one by Hanson, who also scored
on an error.
Norman, who pitched three in-
nings of relief, struck out the side
in the seventh to get the win.
Eight of the nine outs she re-
corded were strikeouts.
The win boosted the Cats' rec-
ord to 10-9, including 2-5 in dis-
trict.
'They played Lake City April
19. but the results were not avail-
able at press time.

Dinkens wins a pair of


district championships


BY LAURA BETH HARVEY
Press Sports
An athletic young lady from
Baker County hurled her way to
championships in two individual
events at the district track and field
competition April 14 at The Bolles
School.
Senior Sharhonda Dinkens took
first in the discus with a throw of
100-feet, 5-inches and won the
shot put with a distance of 34-feet.
Being district champion, how-
ever, is nothing new for Dinkens,
who also won both events last year.
She went on to qualify for the
state tournament in the shot put by
taking third place in the region.
She also placed 12th in discus.


Sharhonda Dinkens


Dinkens is the only Baker Coun-
ty High School track and field ath-
lete to qualify for regionals.
As a team, the Lady Wildcats
came in eighth out of the nine
schools that competed in districts.
"We are a young team.... This
was a rebuilding season," said
girls' track coach Melody Coggin.
"We've gotten a lot of confirma-
tions for next year, so we're start-
ing new."
The boys' track and field team
was not as successful, finishing
last in the district meet.
"We're a young team and we're
getting back a lot of talent next
year," said Coach Charles Ruise.
. Among the guys, there were
several standouts who performed
well this year.
"Our leaders were guys like Ri-
ley Yarborough and Blake Yarbor-
ough. We have a very promising
boys' relay team of Jerel Clayton,
Tommy Moore, Quentin Paige and
Lucius Lee."
In the same vein as Coggin, Ru-
ise claimed this year was "a year
to pull things together to be good
in the future."
"We got a lot of experience and
that will make us a lot stronger
and give us the leadership to be-
come more competitive."
Both coaches'said they're los-
ing only three or four seniors, and
say they are eager to start the next
track and field season.
"We can't wait for next year,"
Ruise said.

Fernandina Beach. Norman was struggling in the first inning, giving up three straight hits and a walk with one out, but rebounded to
