76th Year, Vol. 3 Thursday May 5, 2005


B.J. Cannon resigns


from city commission;

cites lax code adherence


A disgruntled Macclenny com-
missioner resigned last week, say-
ing he was dismayed by "inconsis-
tencies in enforcing city ordinanc-
es, indifference toward enforcing
building codes."
B.J. (Billv) Cannon, who took
office in January 2002 on a coin
toss and was then unopposed for
election the following year, said in
an interview Monday, "My enthusi-
asm got me into trouble. City Man-
ager Gerald Dopson told me I was
a troublemaker and an agitator, and
that no-one on the board appreci-
ates my comments."
Manager Dopson declined speci-
fic comment, saying, "I'd rather
say nothing other than I found him
to be very conscientious. He con-
tributed significantly to our tree
and landscape program."
Ironically, that tree and land-
scape ordinance is one of the issues
Mr. Cannon cites as earning him
the irritation of other city officials.
He first complained several
years ago when the Cypress Pointe
subdivision at North and East bou-
levards was cleared of woodlands.
More recently, similar tree cutting
in the new Forest Park complex
across SR 121 North from his
home made him even angrier.
"We ate dirt 24-7 for weeks. The
city had a tree ordinance in place.
But when I complained about what
they were doing to the community,
I was told to leave it alone," Mr.
Cannon recalls. "I know there's
'mitigation,' but they take down
trees that took 30 years to grow and
put up replacements not as big as
my thumb."
City building inspector Claude
Bagwell notes the new ordinance
calls for two trees per new home
lot. "It's part of the CO, (certificate
of occupancy) process."
Mr. Bagwell is the subject of
much of Mr. Cannon's wrath, espe-
cially as the Forest Park project is
concerned. At the April 12 com-
mission meeting, Mr. Cannon al-
leged the roofing subcontractor was
putting only three nails instead of
the required four per shingle.
In an inspection tour the follow-
ing week, Mr. Cannon said he be-
lieves a half dozen or more shin-
gles were found to have only three
nails, and feels that indicated many
more. However, Mr. Bagwell said
he recalls two of about a dozen
checked, and Maronda Homes
project manager Jeff Bain said he
remembers only one.
As for the tree removal and
blowing dirt, Mr. Bain said Maron-
da was not responsible for either.
"We don't develop land; We only
build homes. If Mr. Cannon wants
to be mad at someone, it's (local
contractor) Rock Rhoden, who
owned and cleared the land, then
sold it to Maronda."
Maronda began building the first
of 23 homes in December and has
several ready to sell, Mr. Bain said.
As for another of Mr. Cannon's
complaints, Mr. Bain explained no
stormwater retention pond was
needed because no new roads were
built.
"I think this whole thing trivial-
izes him to resign because he's
unhappy we're building on what
used to be his driving range. I've
found quite a few golf balls on the
property, and even offered to return
them to him," Mr. Bain said.
Mr. Cannon sees his resignation
as a larger issue.
"I went into this with a vision
and a lot of hope I could be an effi-
cient commissioner. But these at-
tacks on my personal convictions
robbed me of my hope and I'm
deeply hurt. I was told I had a per-
sonal vendetta to get a person fir-
ed."
Again, that would be Inspector
Bagwell.
"He told me he doesn't get on
the roof to inspect shingle jobs, that
he can stand on the ground and see


if they're nailed correctly. I'd have
fired him on the spot! How can he
see if there's the proper sheathing,
the number of nails, etc. from the
ground?"
Mr. Bagwell acknowledges he
does inspect shingles from the
ground.
"I don't go on the roof unless
there is some controversy or a
homeowner suspects something is
wrong."
County building official Bob
Hathcox agrees.
"You can see if they've come
over the side of the roof with the
shingles, if the valleys look right.
The only way to be sure would be
to stand there and watch the whole
time. We tell the owners if they ex-
perience problems, to contact us
and we'll tell them how to file a
complaint against the contractor."
Mr. Cannon cited several other
items on the Maronda homes pro-
ject he says indicate Mr. Bagwell is
not inspecting properly. One of
them, placing large loads of con-
crete block on the uncured slab is
accurate, Mr. Bagwell acknowledg-
ed.
"They're not supposed to put that
much weight on the slab for at least
seven days, and they've been told
not to do it again."
Slightly misplaced pipe or cor-
ners chipped off the slab and reat-
tached with mortar are not building
code violations, the inspector said.
"The bottom line is I really got
my feelings hurt. They attacked my
character and I was threatened in a
very nice way. I didn't realize I
needed a PhD from GOB (good ole
boy) University to be on the board,"
Mr. Cannon concluded.


State is


probing


missing


receipts

From animal
control operation
BY JIM McGAULEY
Press Publisher
The State Attorney's of-
fice in Gainesville confirmed
late Tuesday it is looking in-
to allegations surrounding
missing funds in the county's
animal control operation.
"We can say the allega-
tions came to us last week
and we have assigned an in-
vestigator up there to look
into several areas, like how
money is received and where
it goes once it gets into the
system," said spokesman
Spencer Mann.
Investigator Mark Islar of
Gainesville drew the assign-
ment and began late last

Occupant Lelia Major said she awoke to find the living room ablaze, and was able to
evacuate herself and several children through the front door and window before the fire
department arrived. Chief DJ. (Buddy) Dugger said a drop cord running along the liv-
ing room floor apparently shorted out, igniting the blaze that destroyed 75% of the struc-
ture and nearly all of the contents. Volunteers from Lake Butler and Worthington
Springs, here to attend firefighter certification course, assisted the department.

Glen Council to


Macdenny: let's


talk consolidation

Will appach city to gauge interest


Glen St. Mary officials decided
Tuesday to begin talks with their
Macclenny counterparts that could
potentially lead to consolidation of
the two towns' governments.
Mayor Juanice Padgett was ask-
ed to approach brothers Gerald
Dopson and Gary Dopson, Mac-
clenny's city manager and mayor,
respectively, to gauge their interest
in preliminary talks.
The two towns "This is so
have tossed around shoud loo

and past councils re- point when
sisted. critical thin
The driving fac- -Counciln
tor behind the latest
move are issues connected with the
town's growth, including an in-
creasing government work force
and the likely need for police and
fire coverage in the future.
Council members talked about
protecting residents, especially
those with low incomes, from the
possibility of rising costs and taxes.
"This is something we should
look at seriously," said Councilman
Larry Payne at the May 3 work-
shop. "We're reaching a point
where we need critical thinking.
"We're treading on ground we're
not familiar with. Macclenny has
experience with problems we're just
starting to grapple with."
The preliminary talks would in-
volve creating a process to examine
the issue, make evaluations and de-

week interviewing county employees. Mr. Mann had
no information on who was on the list, but one source
confirmed all employees at the county annex but one
who is ill have been interviewed, as have others in the
county finance office.,
He said the amount of missing funds could run be-
tween $8000-$10,000 based on initial estimates all
receipts from animal control operations at the county
pound off Steel Bridge Road,
The spokesman declined comment on whether any
particular workers are targeted, and instead said the
prosecutor's office will stick to a structured formula
of determining how money has been handled from the


time it is received at the pound to when it is deposited.
The county collects there for services like boarding
of animals later claimed by owners, adoption costs
like sterilization and worming and even euthanasia
(putting illl and aged animals to sleep).
The spokesman paid Gainesville had been contact-
ed by "an officer 6f the court," reportedly. Clerk Al
Fraser, about the discrepancies between deposited and
received cash.
Mr. Fraser said he and other county employees had
been advised by Investigator Islar to refrain from com-
ment on the investigation until it is concluded. He con-
firmed that he has already been interviewed.


cisions.
"I'm probably biased toward
consolidation, but I need more in-
formation," Mr. Payne said.
Councilman Lewis (Woody)
Crews said he favored getting talks
started, admitting he's been consid-
ering consolidation for some time,
and pointing out the "duplication of
infrastructure" and the additional
sewer costs for residents.

ian Larry Payne Also, if the town
needs additional ca-
pacity for future development,
there's no guarantee it would be
available.
Mr. Crews noted that the town
would still maintain its identity,
still be called Glen St. Mary.
In connection with consolida-
tion, officials discussed annexing
land north of US 90 from the
town's eastern limit near Wildcat
Drive to the Little St. Mary's River.
Mayor Padgett said there's a de-
veloper considering that area,
which is under the county' jurisdic-
tion. Macclenny, however, already
has water and sewer lines in place
that serve Baker County High
School
"I believe a developer would an-
nex [into Glen] if he could hook up
to water and sewer with Macclen-
ny," the mayor said.
Glen officials said the area could
not be annexed into Macclenny be-
cause it's not contiguous with city
property.
Nonetheless, Macclenny would
reap water revenue, while Glen
would receive various minor taxes
from the new residents, such as its
communication levy.
She predicated that annexation
to the river "is going to come
quickly."
Glen officials also agreed on an
informal priority for annexations -
east to the river, south to the inter-
state, then west and perhaps north.
Also at the workshop, they ask-
ed town engineer Tim Norman to
put together a proposal for devel-
oping a master utilities plan.
Focused primarily on sewer, the
plan would provide guidance for
dealing with developers.
All agreed that new develop-
mbnt should pay its own way in
terms of infrastructure.
The plan would lay out the nuts
and bolts developers would need to
know in order to figure their costs.
Mr. Norman said the document
will consist largely of maps, show-
ing what size and types of lines are
needed in each area.
He told town officials that their
primary decision must be how much
area they want to plan for up to or
just beyond town limits or a more
extended area.
Mr. Norman will present a pro-
posal to the mayor and town coun-
cil following their regularly sched-
uled meeting May 17.


Superintendent Barton undergoes bypass surgery


Overshadowing the latest meet-
ing of the Baker County School
Board May 2 was the absence of
Superintendent Paul Barton, who
underwent quadruple bypass surg-
ery just a few days earlier.
Ms. Barton, just a few months
into her third term, was back home
Tuesday after the April 28 proce-
dure. According to her secretary

great."


Ms. Barton did not return a tele-
phone message left with Ms. De-
mers,
Last January, in announcing her
intention to run for her third term,
the 52-year-old pronounced her
health to be good.
In May 1999, she suffered a
mild heart attack and underwent
surgery to insert stents in her arter-
ies.
Despite Thursday's surgery, the


superintendent did make
an appearance at this
week's school board meet-
ing, talking on speaker
phone, which was held up
to a microphone.
The occasion was the
board's recognition of
Marty Schaap, who was
honored for his several
years of service represent-
ing the teachers' union in

labor negotiations.
SMr. Schaap flew from
California to accept the
recognition.
In other action, the
board approved Alice

Board tuns down Estate


A mannerly crowd of nearly 75
residents of the Macclenny II sub-
division filled the Baker County
Commission meeting room May 3,
with a single spokeswoman stating
most of the case against rezoning
for rental duplexes.
The proposed site was along
Estate St. leading from SR 121 in-
to the Macclenny II and III subdi-
visions south of Interstate 10.
The comment in a seven page
statement read by Katey Velting
that seemed to have the most ef-
fect with the commission cou-
pled with photos was "The best
indicator of a person's future beha-
vior is his past behavior."
Sean Knowlton stressed the
point, "Even knowing this hearing
was to be held, he's made no effort
to clean it up. It's the same as it's
always been."
"He" is prospective landlord is
John Le Nguyen, who apologized
for the condition of the property.
"I don't live there. I rent it out,
and I have to evict them and then I
clean it up. I've felt embarrassed
each time I have to go there to
clean it up. I haven't wanted to in-
vest money in that mobile home,
but now I want to build nice."
Mr. Nguyen's application was to
build duplexes. However, he chang-
ed that at the start of the hearing to
build four single family homes.
But regardless of his stated plan,
the rezoning would have allowed
up to 12 units on the 2.15 acre lot
on Estates once water and sewer
connections are available.
The City of Macclenny ac-
quired the Macclenny II subdivi-
sion water plant two years ago,
and eventually will connect it to


the main city line at SR 121 South.
Sewer lines do not yet run that far
south, but are expected soon, per-
haps for a residential development
on the former Blair Nursery prop-
erty.
Prodded by attorney Terry
Brown to "articulate the legal ba-
sis," the motion to deny the rezon-
ing cited the narrow Estates Street,
non-availability of municipal utili-
ties, and environmental impact be-
cause of a deep drainage ditch be-
hind the property.
Aiding the orderly discussion
during a nearly hour-long public
hearing was the' new "speaker
card" required by the commission
filled out with the name of audi-
ence speakers, their address and
comment topic. Speakers must
come to the podium so their re-
marks can be recorded, and their
remarks are limited to three min-
utes.
Ms. Velting was allowed more
than the three minutes as the ac-
knowledged spokesperson for 324
signers of petitions opposing the
rezoning.
Others commenting:
Patricia Gillen, who said she
filed a complaint letter against Mr,
Nguyen's property last fall, citing
garbage that drew rodents.
Rodger Bushman: "He's never
maintained one rental, so what
makes you believe he will main-
tain more?"
Roger Gillen: "It's a terribly
maintained and horrible trailer. It
seems the owner doesn't take any
interest in it. There's old furniture
and a, big pile of debris piled in
back."
Anna Bryan: "If this rezoning

is granted, it takes away some of
our rights."
Joyce Welch: "The mobile
home renters' kids play in the ditch,
so I'm concerned about even more
liability since that easement runs
through my property."
Others who had signed up to
speak waived their turns, saying


zoning
Ms. Velting had covered their
planned points.
In the only other land use hear-
ing May 3, Jack and Betty Taylor
got approval to rezone their 2.5
acre parcel on Aunt Mary Harvey
Road in Glen St. Mary. The new
half acre designation allows the
couple, to deed lots to their two
children.

Glen council recognizing obvious


in callingfor talks on consolidation


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
SROBERT GERARD

I spent the weekend moving my .
daughter out of her dorm at FSU
for the summer. Since her room is
smaller than most prison cells, I
figured moving her back would be
a breeze.
How wrong I was.
I don't know where she got all
this stuff, but it completely filled
every nook and cranny of my van.
In fact, I was only able to look'into
my. rear vie. mirror and peer
through a tiny crack in the moun-
tain of stuff to see the road.
It then disgorged itself into our
front room.
"How did you fit this stuff in
your dorm?" I asked.
"You saw my dorm."
"That's true. You only had
small paths here and there that
weren't covered with clothes and
books. It was like that fairy tale
where they follow the bread-
crumbs."
"I didn't have any bread crumbs."
"No, but there were plenty of
cookie crumbs. Why didn't you
get rid of some of that stuff?"
"It's all good stuff."
"What is this?"
"It's a sewing machine."
"Right. From 1957. Where did
you get it?"
"Goodwill."
"Does it work?"
"No."
"Has it ever worked?"
"It probably worked in 1957."
"Why don't you throw it away?"
"I might get it fixed."
"I think the only person who
could fix it is 93 years old."
"You're not much better, Dad.
What's that thing over there?"
"A camera tripod."
"I've lived here all my life and
never once seen you use that tri-
pod. Why is that?"
"That's very simple. I don't
own a camera that fits that tripod."
"Then why did you buy it, Dad?"


"I didn't buy it. I was given it."
"By someone who owned a cam-
era that fit it?"
"Yes."
"Sounds like the same thing as
my sewing machine," Sara said
smugly.
"It's not the same thing at all," I
said with righteous indignation. "I
might just buy a camera that fits it."
"What are the odds of that?"
"About the same as you finding
someone to fix that sewing ma-
chine."
"Exactly. And what about that
thing over in the corner."
"What thing?"
"That thing. I'd tell you what it
was if I knew, Dad. What is that?"
She pointed to a big gray metal
contraption sitting in the corner of
my office.
"I'm not sure, but it's quite ex-
pensive. I think it has something to
do with computers. Or maybe
sound equipment."
"If you don't know what it is,
why don't you throw it out?"
"The minute that I do, I'll need
it."
"See, I'm my father's child."


"I don't keep empty Junior Mints
boxes from when I was a junior in
high school."
"Those have sentimental value.
Besides, you have that box of old
comic books from when you were
Spencer's age."
"Yes, but if I sell them on E-Bay
I can probably send Spencer to
college. You have a chest of toys
you got in Happy Meals."
"Oh yeah? You have Matchbox
cars."
"Oh yeah? You have those dolls
with the interchangeable heads."
"Right. And if you try to throw
those out, Mom will kill you. And
when she does, we'll come in here
and sell your tripod, computer
thing, comic books and Matchbox
cars, and then we'll take out my
dolls and play with them in all the
room we've found from getting rid
of your stuff."
"Okay. Truce. You can keep the.
sewing machine. I'll use it to prop
the utility room door open. We'll
need it propped open so we can
find someplace back there to put
all this stuff before your Mom
comes home and you have this
same conversation with her."

what's good for Macclenny is gen-
erally good for Glen. Development
may not occur simultaneously and
under the same growth regula-
tions, but the town's interests are
essentially the same.
They do it together, or they do it
apart.
Ditto for other municipal ser-
vices. Glen now more easily re-
cognizes it will soon need things
like garbage collection and a
greater level of fire protection.
It can do that alone, at a much


greater cost, or do it with its friend
just down the road.
As Glen government grows, so
will the need to more employees
filling positions essentially the
same as Macclenny already has.
And so on.
So, we'll get a measure of how
Glen's leaders can lead in the com-
ing months as they meet the chal-
lenges of charting a good deal for
their citizens, and surely more crit-
icism for taking the initiative.
They're up to the task.


The details, it would seem, are
the easy part.
Normally, that's the opposite of
how things go, but in the case of
consolidating municipal govern-
ments of neighboring Macclenny
and Glen St. Mary, the hard part is
the latter governing board resolv-
ing it's going to do it.
On Tuesday of this week, the
Glen Council dropped a bomb of
sorts. Without any particular cata-
lyst, the majority of the board
sounded very much like it wants to
become part of Macclenny.
The two entities, after all, have
nearly adjoining borders along the
US 90 corridor (less than one
mile), and if you count the utilities
pact already in force for sewer col-
lection and treatment, you could
say they are "joined at the hip
(pipe)."
Both county schools in Glen
have operated on Macclenny's
utility system for more than a
decade.
The two towns have several
times gone to the dance together.
They just never got out on the
floor to do the "two-step." That
was due to a number of factors:
die-hard Glen residents who want
"no part" of Macclenny or its ad
valorem taxes, the latter insisting
that consolidation be a complete
deal, and let's be honest here,
members of the Glen council
whose self-image suffered a bit.
They didn't want to give up
their little fiefdoms.
So, what's different in 2005?
Glen has plunged sufficiently
into the expense of governing
itself to realize it makes no long
range sense to go it alone.
Macclenny may seem like small
potatoes to towns like Fernandina
Beach and St. Augustine. But to
Glen St. Mary, it's truly the "big
brother" in the next room.
Macclenny's got a lot of stuff
Glen doesn't have; it's been
through a lot of issues that Glen is
still anticipating; it's spent a lot of
money on things Glen knows it's
going to need in the near future.
A joint venture is looking more
attractive all the time.
Both municipalities recognize
their common interstate exit zones
along 1-10 as potential bonanzas
for commercial growth and
burgeoning tax bases. They
likewise realize such zones can be
giant headaches if not zoned and
controlled properly.
In the case of Interstate 10 on
both the north and south sides,

Board member: preliminary

FCAT scores looking good
Dear Editor:
Finally, the FCAT is over for one more year and I think everyone in-
volved (students, teachers, parents and administrators) can breathe a
huge sigh of relief.
Now, we all wait for the results. The Florida Department of Educa-
tion has posted the 4th, 8th and 10th grade writing averages for the 67
counties, and so far the preliminary results for Baker County are look-
ing good.
Students can score between 1 and 6 on FCAT writing. The minimal
acceptable score was raised from 3.0 to 3.5 this year for the purpose of
giving schools their letter grades. The percentage of Baker County stu-
dents scoring at or above this minimal level has increased steadily over
the past three years:
2003 2004 2005
4th grade 76 81 84'
8th grade 79 80 89
10th grade 72 83 92
Many parents have questions about the results and what the numbers
mean. FDOT has a great website www.firn.edu/doe/sas/fact/htm with
many of the answers. It can help parents understand scores, reports for
each county, examples of test questions, parent brochures, Q&A and
FCAT facts. It also has study aids for future test preparation.
Also, don't forget this is Teacher Appreciation Week. Everyone
wants to feel appreciated for working hard and doing a good job. Don't
forget to tell your child's teacher "thank you" for the long hours they
put into helping your child become successful.
Yes, I .did say "long hours." Many papers are graded and lesson
plans written at home off the time clock. I think you would be sur-
prised how many cars are still in the school parking lots late in the af-
ternoon.
As a former classroom teacher, I know when I did receive words of
appreciation it meant so very much.
If I can be of assistance to anyone, please give me a call. I will be
happy to answer your questions or find someone who can.

Barbara Yarbrough 2005 Jeanine Harvey Volunteer Award winner
PHOTo COURTESY OF SAM KIITCuNo, NEFSII 1


Volunteer award goes to

Ms. Yarbrough for work

on aging, fair committees


"Volunteers Plant Seeds of
Kindness" was the theme of Vol-
unteer Appreciation Day at North-
east Florida State Hospital on
April 20.
The highlight of the annual
event was presentation of the
Jeanine L. Harvey Community
Service Award to Barbara Yar-
brough of Macclenny for her many
years of work with both the Baker
County Council on Aging and the
Baker County Fair Committee.
Ms. Yarbrough, a longtime'
employee of the Baker County tax
collector's office, has served in a
volunteer capacity for both the fair
and aging boards. Both capacities
demand long and arduous hours of
her time away from her regular
job.
More than 800 agencies and
individuals volunteered their ser-
vices to NEFSH the past year, and
many were recognized during the
appreciation day ceremony.
Two family-owned nurseries
received the Community Partner
of the Year awards this spring.
They were Southern States
Nurseries, Inc. of Macclenny rep-
resented by Gary and Myra Fraser
and the Glen St. Mary Nurseries
SCompany represented by Lin and
Magi Taber.
The First United Methodist
Church of Macclenny men's fel-
lowship organization received the
Heart of Gold Award, and Bruce
Stevens the Friends Volunteer of
the Year Award.
Margene Brown, the volunteer
director of the World Golf Hall of
Fame near St. Augustine, was the
main speaker.
Other nominees for the Harvey
Award, established in memory of


the late Ms. Harvey, the hospital's
director of volunteer services,
were Denise Melton of Samaritan
House, Steven Holland of His
Hands Ministries, Carl Mobley, an
archivist from Ocala and Frances
Frost, president of the Macclenny
Women's Club.


Glen, Sanderson will need new stations


With only two of seven mem-
bers present April 28, the county's
Buildings and Facilities Commit-
tee got an update on rescue and
fire department needs to serve an-
ticipated growth the next five
years.
Emergency Services Director
Rick Clark said a large cluster resi-
dential development expected
north of Glen St. Mary makes that
a prime location for a third rescue
station. Currently, the county has
stations on US 90 in Macclenny
and Sanderson.
Land and possibly construction
of a building could be required of
Adar Developers if the Miami-
based company goes through with
plans for a large 15,000 home sub-
division that could nearly double
the county's current population.
Adar has not yet completed pur-
chase of the property, which lies
west of Ode Yarbrough Road. Once
that is done, the firm plans an ini-
tial project of 625 homes on 3645
acres, a size that will require the
complex and time-consuming De-
velopment of Regional Impact pro-
cess. It involves a number of state
agencies including the Northeast
Florida Regional Planning Coun-
cil, Florida Department of Trans-
portation, and St. Johns River Wa-
ter Management Authority.
The company also has a pur-
chase option on an adjacent 2000
acres.
"So far, all Adar has offered is
land, meaning the county would
have the cost of building," Mr.
Clark pointed out.
All the local governments the
;county, Macclenny, Glen St. Mary
and the school system are re-
searching a variety of impact fees
that would have new development
paying part of the cost of infra-
structure needs and improvements.
Sanderson needs a relocated and
bigger fire-rescue station, Mr. Clark
said. He suggested the Develop-
ment Commission could be asked
to donate about an acre for a multi-
bay station.

"Right now, the trucks have to
back across US 90 into the station.
And although we have four ambu-
lances, there is space only for one
in Sanderson so we don't have a
backup unit there," Mr. Clark ex-
plained.
The Development Commission
property aside Sanderson Pipe
would be ideal also because of
possible access to the company's
well to fill the tanks, he suggested.
"Right now, Sanderson has to
come to Glen or Macclenny to fill
the tanks. Some stations do have
big external above-ground tanks."
Other stations are too short to
accommodate longer and taller fire
trucks, and are on small lots donat-
ed over the years, Mr. Clark noted.
"For instance, we could get a
lower ISO (home insurance) rating
at Southeast Station 10 if we had
two engines there. To do that,
we'd have to take away a tanker,
because there are only two bays."
As with Sanderson, Mr. Clark
would like to seek donated land to
relocate Southeast, currently on a
small corner at SR 121 and Jeff
Starling Road.
He mentioned another planned
development at Blair Nursery, or
possibly a 121 frontage track from
either Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital or Southern States Nursery.
Sanderson and Southeast are al-
ready inadequate, Mr. Clark said,
and the other six are "weak." He


plans to start seeking budget funds
to replace the engine fleet.
"They were all bought in 1989,
so they're 15 years old. They've
had little use, so there's not a lot of
miles on them. But sitting idle is
not good for them."
The central Emergency Opera-
tions Center on US 90 between
Macclenny and Glen St. Mary has
an adequate building, but not
enough parking, Mr. Clark said.
"There's about 11/2 acres now;
we need about that much more
space. We have a problem when
we have any event there. Jim Du-
val owns the adjoining lot and he
fusses when we have classes and
he believes there's even a bumper
on his property."


In a final issue, Mr. Clark said
the county needs to begin planning
for combined fire-rescue squads -
and paid rather than volunteer.
"We already should have a full-
time fire chief," he said.
Mr. Clark requested full time
status for Fire Chief Richard Do-
lan in the 2003-04 budget request,
but got such negative reception
from the Baker County Commis-
sion that he did not include it for
the current fiscal year.

Handgun

turns out

to be knife
Initially when sheriff's deputies
were dispatched to a domestic distur-
bance in east Macclenny the morn-
ing of May 1, they were told the
assailant was armed with a pistol.
When they stopped Corey J.
Grant, 27, of Jacksonville a few
minutes later, they learned instead
he was armed with a small knife.
According to Deputy Jeffery Daw-
son, it was in a leather holster and
looked similar to a pistol.
His estranged girlfriend, 22-
year-old Allison Moore, called
police about 10:40 when Mr.,
Grant appeared at her apartment
on First St. and banged on the door
demanding entry.
She also said he stomped
around the front yard, kicking toys
belonging to their young son. Both
Ms. Moore and several neighbors
said Mr. Grant was making verbal
threats while on the property, and
the knife looked like a handgun.
He was charged with aggravat-
ed assault with a deadly weapon.
In other recent cases, a criminal
complaint was filed alleging ag-
gravated battery against Laronda
Ellis, 18, of Macclenny for al-
legedly stabbing'Aisha Shuman,
18, of Waycross, Ga.
The two argued late in the eve-
ning on April 28 in front of an
address on Sycamore Dr. in Mac-
clenny, and the victim alleged Ms.
Ellis stabbed her in the arm.
A criminal complaint alleging
battery resulted from a fight late
on April 25 off Stone Road near
Glen St. Mary.
Matthew P. Arnold, 21, of Mac-
clenny and Stephen A. Collett, 24,
of Glen are accused of beating
Kristopher Lehman, 25, of Glen
during an altercation about 11:00.
The victim reportedly argued
with the pair because they were in
the company of his ex-wife.
In other arrests, Deputy James
Parham charged Jason Sullivan,
21, of Sanderson with disorderly
intoxication when he found the
suspect urinating on Thomas
Sweat Rd. the evening of April 30.
Clinton G. Sparkman, 22, of
Beaufort, S.C. was arrested for
trespass the evening of April 28.
He was nabbed by Sgt. Phil Du-
val while exiting a bedroom win-
dow at the residence 'of Ron Vonk
on Glenwood Circle near Glen St.
Mary.
Police had been called to the
scene earlier. The room was occu-
pied by a 14-year-old female.


Took ATV

evading a

police search

after wreck
A Macclenny man charged with
leaving an injured passenger at the
scene of an accident near Tall Pine
Road the evening April 25 faces
an additional charge of stealing a
four-wheel ATV from a residence
to aid in his getaway from authori-
ties.
David D. Woolf, 20, turned him-
self in at county jail the next day
after police had identified him and
called off a foot and vehicle search
around the accident scene.
By that time, it had also been
learned that Mr. Woolf took a
$7300 ATV from the residence of
Daryl W. Mobley off CR 23C and
used it to successfully elude a pri-
son canine team following the
accident about 9:00 pm.
The suspect appeared at the res-
idence of Steven and Mary Wisne-
sky on River Heights Drive an
hour later and talked the couple
into driving him to his mother's
residence in north Macclenny.


He was minus a shoe and ap-
peared to have minor injuries
about his face, but did not tell the
couple about the accident. He left
the stolen ATV off the road near-
by.
When he reported to county jail
after police interviewed his mother
and others, Mr. Woolf said he had
been drinking and taking prescrip-
tion medicine that evening, and
had no memory of the accident or
ATV theft.
The Florida Highway Patrol
will charge him with leaving the
scene, the sheriff's department
with eludirg police and theft.


Arrested after an attack

on his father and brother


The 47-year-old son of a resi-
dent of Deerfield Circle in Mac-
clenny was arrested in Maxville
and charged with beating his father
with a baseball bat and cutting a
brother who had come to the aid of
the victim.
Lenny Miller, no address avail-
able, entered the home of Samuel
D. Miller, Sr., no age available,
just before 11:00 the night of April
30 and knocked him to the floor
with the bat.
According to other relatives
who witnessed the attack, he then
attempted to choke his father by
holding his foot on the man's
throat.
Samuel, Jr., no age available but
living at the same address, con-
fronted his brother outside the resi-
dence, and received cuts to the
right arm and left hand.
According to Deputy Bill Star-
ling, the Florida Highway Patrol
arrested the accused brother after a
warrant had been issued for his
arrest. He is charged with two
counts of aggravated battery, one a
more serious charge because it
involves a person over 65 years of
age.
In another domestic violence
case, this one involving a mother
and daughter, police charged a 16-
year-old who attacked her mother
near their residence off Kathy Jo
Road in Glen St. Mary.
Deputy Mike Lagle said when
he arrived in the neighborhood late
in the evening of April 30, he
found the 46-year-old mother
lying atop the kicking teen at-
tempting to restrain her.
The girl continued to curse at
both the mother and officer after


he placed her in his patrol cruiser
to calm down. The officer noted
the teen had been drinking.
She apparently was mad at her
mother over her refusal to allow
the teen's 17-year-old boyfriend to
move in with her.
The girl was later released back
into the mother's custody, and
charged with battery.
Shed burglarized
A resident off South Lowder St.
in Macclenny reported the theft of
tools and other items from a shed
on his property between April 25-
26.
Charles D. Jones said he also
found soft drinks and loose change
had been taken from the structure,
all valued at near $250. Deputy
Erick Deloach noted it was the lat-
est in a string of similar thefts in
that area in recent weeks.
In other thefts reported the past
week, a surveillance tape of a sec-
tion of the Travelodge motel at I-
10 and SR 121 showed a white
male use a crowbar to pry open a
soft drink machine during the
early morning hours of April 26.
He took an undetermined a-
mount of cash from the machine.

School students face charges of
battery following two fights that
broke out on campus last week.

One of the students, a 13-year-
,old from Macclenny, is facing a
more serious charge for allegedly
attacking teachers Rebekah Her-
ririgton and Jon Mobley, who is al-
so a coach.
Both employees were at the
time attempting to break up a fight
involving the girl, another 13-year-
old from Baldwin and a 14-year-
old from Glen St. Mary.
The incident took place the
afternoon of April 27.
Two days earlier, a 12-year-old

Drug arrest

after purchase

by informant
Drug investigators arrested
Cleveland Farmer, 53, of Margar-
etta following a set-up purchase of
crack cocaine from him by an
undercover agent.
The informant, using marked
bills and a vehicle equipped with
video and audio recording, al-
legedly purchased .07 gram of
crack from the suspect after they
met at a pre-arranged spot the
afternoon of April 29. The location
was off Southern States Nursery
Road south of Macclenny.
Investigator Scotty Rhoden said
the informant used $100 in pre-
marked currency supplied by the
sheriff's department, and the cash
was recovered when Mr. Farmer
was arrested near his residence
later. He had a total of $962 in his
possession at the time.
He was booked for sale and
possession of crack.
Two teenage males were arrest-
ed on minor drug charges early on
April 30 after Deputy Mike Lagle
responded to a call of a suspicious
vehicle and found them parked off
Barber Road just before 1:00 am.
The 14-year-old was at the
wheel of the Chevrolet pickup and'
did not have a license. Both he and
the 17-year-old passenger, both
from Macclenny, had been drinking
and both agreed to be searched.
The officer found small bags of
marijuana on both youths, and
charged them with misdemeanor
possession.


Caught stealing
beer from Citgo
A St. George, Ga. man faces a
county of shoplifting-petty theft
after he allegedly ran out of the,
Citgo Store south of Glen St. Mary
late on April 28 with a 12-pack of
beer.
Clerk Donald Weddle told pol-
ice Aaron M. Fernandez, 22, got
into a vehicle that headed west on
nearby Interstate 10, and it was
stopped minutes later when it exit-
ed CR 229 south of Sanderson.
The suspect told Deputy Brad
Dougherty he didn't have the cash
to pay for the beer. Two fellow
passengers were not charged after
insisting they believed Mr. Fer-
nandez had paid for it.

Baker County students who
took the FCAT writing test did
well compared to previous years,
but a change in the way the state
measures success led to a higher
number of failures.
Beginning.this year, students
must have a mean score of 3.5 to
pass, up from 3.0 in previous years.
Under the new threshold, just
58 percent of the county's fourth
graders passed the FCAT writing
test. In fact, the combined mean
score for the grade was 3.4. State-
wide, fourth graders scored 3.7
Sixty-eight percent of eighth
grade students passed, while 76
percent of tenth graders did.
The combined mean scores
were 3.6 and 3.8 respectively,
which are identical to state averages.
Only fourth, eighth and tenth
graders take tLe FC.-\T \ ritinr re-r
Last year, under the 61od stan-'
dard, 81 percent of Baker's fourth
graders, 80 percent of eighth grad-
ers and 83 percent of tenth graders
passed.
Applying that standard to this
year's scores, the passing rates
would have been 84 percent, 89
percent and 92 percent, respectively.
From that perspective, students'
scores are improving,
In fact, the combined mean
scores for all three grades improv-
ed .or stayed steady each of the
past three years.
This year's mean score for
eighth graders improved three-
tenths of a point over last year,
while tenth graders were up one-
tenth. Fourth graders stayed the
same.
The state also released FCAT
math and reading results last week
for high school seniors and read-
ing results for third graders.

Storm damage
areas may have
a higher fire risk
With the approach of drier
weather during the next couple of
months, University of Florida for-
estry experts warn that many areas
of the state could experience a se-
vere fire season in areas hit hard
by the 2004 hurricanes.
Hurricanes Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne damaged or de-
stroyed more than seven million
acres of forest in 34 counties, cre-
ating conditions on the ground that
could fuel wildfires that are more
intense and widespread.
The storms added tons of trees,
limbs, pine needles and leaves to
the forest floor. Some trees were
knocked down by the storms, while
others are broken or bent over so
that the entire crown area is within
easy reach of a fire burning on the
forest floor. With all this added fu-
el, fires will burn hotter than in
other years.
Forestry crews have been work-
ing statewide to remove downed
and broken trees from forested ar-
eas, but the task is hard to com-
vplete in some areas because of
time and resource constraints.
Residents who live in or near
heavily forested areas that were
impacted by the hurricanes should
clear damaged trees or debris, if
they have not done so already.


The scores were released early
for those grades because the re-
sults could determine whether the.
older students get their diplomas at
graduation or whether the younger
ones advance to the next grade.
Scores for other grades will be
out in the next couple weeks.
The Florida Times-Union report-
ed last week that 52 Baker County
third-graders failed the reading test.
That comes to a 14.1 percent
failure rate, which is lower than
Duval (18.8 percent) and Putnam
(19.7 percent), but higher than
Clay (11.1 percent), Nassau (10.6
percent) and St. Johns (11.6 per-
cent).
The newspaper also said that 46
seniors 16.4 percent failed ei-
ther the math or reading tests, or
both. The tests were actually re-
taks of 10th grade FC.-Ts. T ..
Howe\ er, the percentage of fail-
ures which is far worse than the


other counties is misleading, ac-
cording to Robin 1Mobley, the Bak-
er school district's director of cur-
riculum.
"We have a lot of exceptional
ed students," she said. "Other dis-
tricts pull them out" when submit-
ting their figures.
She said the numbers published
in the Times-Union are misleading.
Baker County usually excludes
the special ed scores, but high
school principal David Crawford
has been on temporary assignment
at Keller Intermediate School.
Ms. Mobley said he would like-.
ly have the truer figures. Mr. Craw-
ford, however, was not available
late Tuesday afternoon.
Whatever the exact number of
failures, a poor score doesn't nec-
essarily mean a student won't grad-
.uate from high school because.
they'll have an opportunity to take
the tests again next month.

world" applications.
Student participants will explore

scientific research, both in the lab-
oratory and in the field.

people fought and died there 140
years ago.

ter a mixture of traditional and
nontraditional teaching methods
and multidisciplinary approaches,
including team teaching and field
experiences that allow them to see
how different disciplines contrib-
ute to one another. Besides lecture
and reading assignments, students
will also work in small groups,
lead topical discussions among
their peers, and collaboratively de-
velop projects and presentations.

Happy Mother's Day
to
Cathy Crawford
7/28/1935 7/2/2004
Remembering Mama
Happy Mother's Day is here once
more, but on this special day, I softly
mourn.
For my Mama is home with the an-
gels where her heart has been reborn.
I try to keep my brightest smile for
those around to know.
But deep inside there is a little cry,
for I miss my mama so.
I'd love to sit again and hold her
hand as I am lonesome for her all the
while.
But I'm gladfor her to be in heaven,
restored with her sweet smile.
I know God took her when His time
was right, so no more suffering she
would see.
The burdens of a mother and
MeMaw's heart are gone eternally.
How I cherish all the special ways,
she pouredforth of her tender love.
Giving selflessly, dear Mom, now
resting. Rewarding in our Lord above.
Dear Mama of mine, I may be sad
today. Missing the one that I adore.
But one day soon we'll be together,
close, just like we were before.
We miss you and love you, Mama
LOVE TAMMY & DOUG

In Memory
of

Vallery J. Cason
1/31/1961 5/3/1998
It's been so long since we've seen
your face and the smile that's so full of
heavenly grace.
Only pictures remain as visions of
you, but the love you gave remains new.
The legacy of your life will never
die, of this we are reminded in the re-
flection ofyour grandson's eyes.
When we look at him, we are reas-
sured of your love and we know your
life remains with us.
You are forever in our hearts.
YOUR FAMILY

In Memory
of

SJames Wayne Rowe
12/11/1968 5/6/2004
It's been a year and still we can't
get our lives together. You made such
an impression in our hearts it can't be
erased with time. I think each day that
goes by makes us miss you even more.
When you left there was not time to say
goodbye. You were gone and we were
left to pick up the pieces and go on. But
you were too special to let go of and
there is still an empty place in our
hearts. And we look everyday for a way
to stop the pain. ButI think until we are
together there is no way. We hope that
you know we love you and we always
will. You would be proud of the little
men that you raised They try so hard to
be brave when I know inside they are
scared and lonely for your love. I sit
alone at night begging God to bring
you back to us for our lives are at a
stand still and we need you. You are
forever in our hearts and we miss you.

Heartfelt gratitude
The family of Angela Lynn

its sincere thanks for all the love,
prayers, flowers and food that were
sent during our time of loss.
We especially would like to
thank the Baker County sheriff's
department for keeping Angie safe
in times of need, Charlotte's Web
and Shear Charm for their loving
hands that radiated Angie's beauty
in our final goodbye here on earth.
Thank you, Bro. Mark ard Ed-

Cody sends his thanks for the love
shown to him, but he knew God
needed another angel to help pour
out the rain in heaven. Thanks to
all the pallbearers for your kind-
ness, and thanks, V. Todd Ferreira,
for a wonderful service.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU,

Angling for gift-giving ideas?


Wildcats catcher Jessica Jenkins signs an offer for a full athletic scholarship with North Florida Community College as her mother
Cindy Jenkins, father Ricky Jenkins and NFCC coach Joe Morabito look on.



Lady Cats fall in district play


The Baker County High School
girls' softball team was eliminated
in the semifinals of district play-
offs 3-0 by state powerhouse West
Nassau on April 27.
Ashley Norman pitched her best
game of the season, according to
Wildcats coach Cheryl Nunn.
Norman allowed the Warriors
only three hits just hours after re-
ceiving treatment for a back injury
that has bothered her most of the
.season.
Two of the three runs she gave
up were unearned.
West Nassau pitcher Katie Law-
rence, however, bested Norman's
effort, holding the Cats hitless.
The Warriors returned essential-
ly the same team that made it to
the state semifinals last year.
After defeating the Wildcats,
West Nassau went on to beat Clay
County 2-1 for the district title.
The Cats, who lost twice to the
Warriors during the regular season,
had split a pair of 2-1 games with
the Blue Devils.
Against the Warriors, the Wild-
cats threatened just once when
Shannon Nickels was hit by a pitch
to lead off the second inning.
She moved to second on an er-
ror and reached third on a fielder's
choice.
Jessi Nunn, who reached base
on the fielder's choice, was later
called out for interference.
The Cats were unable to drive
in Nickels.
In the third, Norman walked
with two outs, but it turned out to
be the last base runner the Cats
would get'as Lawrence closed out
the game by.retiring the final 13
batters.
The Warriors scored twice in
the first and once in the fourth.
The Cats finished the season
12-11, winning five of their last
seven, including a win against Clay
on the road, a four-run, last inning
victory over Paxon, and their first
round district win against Episco-
pal in ten innings.
Less than a week after the loss
to West Nassau, however, the team
got some good news as catcher
Jessica Jenkins accepted a full
scholarship to play for North Flor-
ida Community College in Madi-
son County.
Jenkins signed the offer at a
.ceremony attended by her parents
Cindy and Ricky Jenkins and
NFCC coach Joe Morabito.
Also there were the Wildcats'
coaching staff and team, who cele-
brated with lunch and a cake at the
high school.
Cindy Jenkins said Morabito
heard about her daughter "through
the softball community," then
came to watch her play in April.
Nunn.said he was immediately
impressed with Jessica. "He knew
right away he wanted her to play
for him."
Ms. Jenkins said Morabito told
her Jessica will be his starting
catcher beginning this fall, when
the college plays a light schedule
of tournaments.
The full season begins next
spring.
"We were so impressed with the
school," she said. "We hadn't
heard of it before, but it is beauti-
ful and the people were so nice.
"It's a small school, it will be
good for her athletically and aca-
demically. She's looking forward
to going there."
Jenkins batted .297 for the sea-
son, with an on-base average of,
.392.


She drove in eight runs and scor-
ed 12, while leading the team with


10 steals; she was caught just one
time all season.

A's undefeated in first half


The Senior League A's team
coached by Donald and Ben
Combs finished the first half unde-
feated. Strong bats and solid de-
fense proved to be too much for
the other six teams.
The pitching was not bad either.
Ridge Sweat, Jarrell Rodger, Ma-
lon Oglesby and Justin Combs all
.pitched. Rodgers pitched the final
game of the first half you seldom
hear about a perfect game, but


Rodgers threw one Saturday. He
faced 18 batters and no one reach-
ed base. No runs, no walks, no hits
and no errors in the 12-0 win.
The A's have scored 111 runs
and only given up 24 in eight
games. The other players are Tyler
Fletcher, Leighton Cannon, Chris
Jarrell, Kalte Duval, Tyler Ogles-
by Frank Owens, Brandon Rob-
ertson and Michael Willie.

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD


When the hMimi Heat bought
Shaquille O'Neal from the Los
\:.gc`K:; Lakers, ihe\ were con-
vinceed S'i.w could do for them
what he had done for LA. In short,
bring them an NB.\ championship.
Ihe cc.iLaini looked like po-
tential ch.mps as they shut out the
New Jersey' Nets Sunday.
There was only one glitch in the
plan they did it with O'Neal
hobbled by a thigh injury.
Funny how that happens.
A great player leads his team to
the playoffs, only to be sidelined.
However, by that point the team
has learned what it takes to win,
and even without their star they
are able to do the job. In fact, of-
tentimes, another player steps up
to wear the mantle of game break-
er.
It happened to the aforemen-
tioned Lakers in the early '80s.
Kareem Abdul Jabbar went out
with an injury, but Lakers' rookie
power forward Magic Johnson
stepped in the center spot role and
led the team to the title. In the pro-
cess, Johnson, who at 6'8" was re-
ally too short to play center, prov-
ed himself a superstar and future
hall of famer.
That brings us to the Heat. With
O'Neal injured, who should step
up to lead the team but Dewayne
Wade.




Ow SCHOL HONORABLE MENmON
Sharhonda-D.inkens placed sixth
in both the discus and shot put at the
state track meetApril 30.
SportsWeek wrongly stated last
week that Dinkens was the first com-
petitor to compete in two events at
the state level
However, Tom .Covington, high
school track coach from back in the
day came in to set the record
straight.
Marcus Rhoden burned up the
track with his blazing times in the
100 and 220 yard dashes. In 1962 he
took first place in both events, set-
ting the state record in each.
Also, a young Kenneth Kirkland
placed first at state in the 440 yard
run and had a strong showing in two
other events in 1967. Teammate
Danny Lamb excelled too.
Of note, in 1964, Freddie Rhoden
came in third at state in the 440 run
and Mike Thrift came in second in
the mile.

The Wildcats varsity baseball
team lost its first round district game
7-3 to Clay County.


Wade, who O'Neal has trum-
peted all season as a star in the
making, led the Heat to their
sweep of the Nets with 34 points
in game four.
He averaged 26.8 points, 8.8 as-
sists, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and
more than 42 minutes of playing
time a game.
Those numbers put him in elite
company. Only Oscar Robertson,
Larry Bird, Bob Cousy, Wi'l
Chamberlain, Magic Johnson and
Michael Jordan have matched those
kind of numbers in a series. Pretty
rarified air for Wade to be breath-
ing.
The sweep was the best thing
that could happen for O'Neal. It
gives him a full week to rest his
legs before he has to play again in
the next round.
If he can perform up to his lofty
standards and if Wade can contin-
ue to put up the numbers with the
big man healthy, it could very well
be that the Heat is on the way to
the title Shaq felt certain he could
help provide when he joined the
team.
Steve Nash and Joe Johnson led
the Phoenix Suns to a sweep of the
Memphis Grizzlies. Johnson scor-
ed 25 points in Sunday's series-
clinching game:
The Suns are the Rodney Dan-
gerfield of the NBA. They just
don't get a lot of respect. Their
run-and-gun style makes them a
favorite with fans, however.
This was the first sweep for the
Suns in ten years and their first trip
to the semifinals since 2000.
" 'VWhomever they play, their op-
ponents better be ready to run, be-
cause that is what Phoenix is all
about.
