The company seeking the special .,

fills a similar role at the multi-
county landfill at Ellerbee Curve in
Union County.
Mr. Darabi said Tuesday that pur-

county or another eventual pwner have been made.
His insistence that no host-fee income has been dan-
gled before the Commission as an enticement for zon-
ing approval conflicts with board Chairman Julie
Combs, in whose district the Rayonier tract lies.
Ms. Combs, who has been pummeled with protests
from neighbors along 229 since the zoning hearing no-
tice was advertised in the Press last week, says she saw
a projection of tipping fee income recently, but did not
retain a copy.
It estimated $1 million annually in tipping fee in-
come.
"I'm trying to look at both sides before making my
decision," said Chairman Combs in an interview earlier
this week. "I just found out (Tuesday) that Frank Dara-
bi was the sole owner of that company."
Ms. Combs added that she planned to read up on the
NIMBY (not in my backyard) syndrome that springs
up with most requests for landfills near residential areas.
One important consideration that will confront the
board is the condition of nearby roads including CR
229 and CR 130 (Mud Lake). Just north of the site is

'Freezer


meat' thief


is caught


last week
It may be a while before William
S. Royall of Middleburg ever stands
before a judge in Baker County to
answer for defrauding 13 people
out of thousands of dollars, but his
arrest last week in Jacksonville was
due largely to the vigilance of a lo-
cal resident.
Mr. Royall, 60, is being held in
Duval County jail on dozens of
fraud charges in multiple states,
mostly by taking money from doc-
tors and other professionals for fro-
zen steaks, lobster and shrimp he
never delivered.
In fact, according to sheriff's in-
vestigator Gerald Rhoden, the fugi-
tive was recognized by a Baker
County woman in a doctor's office
on May 23. He had gone there to
sell the doctor food, and the un-
named patient recognized him from
one of his local scams.
"We'd been after this guy since
late 2003 when he. was working
this area," said the investigator.
"He's a slick one, but we got lucky
this time."
An off-duty JSO officer happen-
ed to be in the physician's office
and held Mr. Royall until arresting
officers arrived.
Investigator Rhoden said the
suspect has 15 "holds" on him from
Florida authorities once Duval
County gets through with him. He
is also wanted in South Carolina
and Georgia.
The investigator had more than a
passing interest in the case. Mr.
Royall had used his name as a ref-
erence-When making his pitch to un-
suspecting customers in Macclenny
offices.
"He was at the courthouse one
day and I bought some steak from
him. It was great meat and I told
several people about it," recalls In-
vestigator Rhoden.
He also used the names of
County Judge Joey Williams and
Sheriff Joey Dobson, who said later
they never referred him to anyone.,
To set up the scam, the investi-
gator said Mr. Royall would make
a few legitimate sales with high-
quality products, then use the names
of customers when he pitched oth-
ers.
He's also charged with scam-
ming an Arcadia realtor out of a
pickup, and creating a false front
company that he named Hickory
Hill Distributors.
Among the local victims in late
2003 were employees and owners
in the offices of Dr. Andre Salas, Dr.
George Weeks, Rhoden Realty, Ly-
ons and Lyons CPA, Fraser Hospi-
tal and the law office of Granvel

Trio injured in collection site collision May 27
Rescue workers, fire volunteers and county deputies assisted in removing 79-year-old John Rademacher of Macclenny from the crush-
ed driver's compartment of his 1998 Plymouth van shortly after it pulled into the path of another vehicle on SR 228 in front of the
county's trash collection site. The driver and his wife Norma, 77, were flown to Shands Jacksonville by helicopter from the scene after
the 3:00 pm collision. The driver of the second vehicle, 34-year-old David Cannon ofJacksonville, was also injured and taken to Fras-
er Hospital, He was alone in his eastbound 1999 Chevrolet SUV at the time, and wearing a seat belt as was the driver of the other ve-
hicle. The Plymouth came to rest in the eastbound lane of 228; the Chevrolet on the north shoulder after overturning. Trooper W.G.
Smith of the Florida Highway Patrol investigated and said charges are pending.

Five people have applied to temporarily
fill the vacancy on the Macclenny Commis-
sion created when B.J. Cannon resigned last
month.
The winner will only serve until the next
election on September 6, when seats cur-
rently held by Dr. Richard Johnson and
Tommy Johns will be also on the ballot.
V Linda Williams is again seeking the
appointment. She lost by a coin toss in Janu-
ary 2002 to Mr. Cannon after both got two
votes each from the four remaining com-
missioners following the death of James
"Smitty" Smith.
Ms. Williams is a 17-year member of the
city's Zoning and Adjustment Board, cur-
rently serving as vice chairman. She is also


vice chairman and a 10-year member of the
Baker County Development Commission.
Both are volunteer positions. She retired in
July 2003 from a 35-year career at North-
east Florida State Hospital, the last 20 as
payroll supervisor.

BY MICHAEL DRINKER
Press Staff
An uncharacteristically feisty
Baker County School Board decid-
ed at a workshop May 26 to seek
an impact fee of $4000 for new sin-
gle-family homes.
The board also agreed to a
$3000 fee on mobile homes and
$2000 per unit in multifamily con-
struction such as duplexes, town-
homes and condominiums.
The board will make it official at
its June 6 meeting, then forward
the proposal to county commis-
sioners for approval, probably in a
joint workshop June 13.
Impact fees are levied on new
construction, and are intended to
help alleviate the cost of additional
roads, schools, police and fire ser-
vices, etc. needed to accommodate
new growth.
The county has tentatively set its
fee at $3432 for a 1500 square foot
home, plus $2 per additional square
foot. There is no differentiation be-
tween types of housing.
The municipalities of Macclen-
ny and Glen St. Mary are likely to
impose similar fees.
County officials are aiming to

have the ordinance in place by July 1.
By law, the school board cannot
enact its own impact fee; it must re-
ly on the commission to pass the or-
dinance.
One potential point of conten-
tion is how much the school district
will pay the county to collect its
fees.
The board proposes to pay three
percent of the total collected on its
behalf, but county officials appar-
ently are looking at 10 percent.

is, a 1500-
square-foot home would be assessed
$7432.
In Baker County, the average cost
for a new house of that size, ex-
eluding land, is about $90,000,
which means the impact fee adds
8.3 percent to the price of a new
home.
The school board's consultant
said 3-5 percent is preferable.
The consulting firm, Urbanom-;
ics Inc., found in a study commis-
sioned by the board that the highest
justifiable fees for the school dis-
trict would be $5068 for both sin-
gle-family homes and mobile
homes, and $2889 for multi-family
units.
Based on the county's projected
growth through 2030, the district
would need $87.3 million to pay
for five or six new schools and put
more buses on the road to accom-
modate the additional students, ac-
cording to the study.
Urbanomics calculated the fee by
subtracting expected funding from
state and federal governments and
local property taxes from the $87.3
million, then dividing the remain-
der by the projected number of new
households.
The consultant said, however,
that districts almost never assess
the highest justifiable fee.
That's why the board set its fee
at $4000 instead of $5068.

The company backed away from
it, he says, because it believes
Steel Bridge has more market val-

countered with possible sites both
east and west of 229. The propos-
ed tract is east of the road and north
of the Union County line.
The engineer said he signed the
option to purchase it a month ago,

Sanderson landfill


fails in 'smell test,'


should be canned


IMPRESSIONS
-m-


S. It's no mean pun intended when
one concludes the proposed C&D
(construction and demolition)
landfill south of Sanderson doesn't
pass the "smell test."
The project is nowhere near a
done deal; in fact it will come up
for a special exception zoning
heating next week, a meeting
expected to draw the neighbor-
hood anxious to kill the deal and
find out a few things in the
process.
Some things to ponder:
VDo we need such a facility in
Baker County?
V If so, is this the only location
at which it can be located?
V If we do need one, should it
be privately owned?
V Could the county own.it, and
lease it to a private concern as a
revenue source?
V What kind of damage will a
constant stream of heavy trucks do
to the routes to and from such a
facility?
V Who is responsible for road
widening or construction, if neces-
sary, and maintenance once the
landfill opens?
VAre Class III landfills a
source of ground pollution?
/ What effect do they have on
property values of nearby resi-
dences?
It's hard to believe an alternate
site doesn't exist somewhere in
Baker County that is both accessi-
ble to ingress and egress without
creating massive road woes, and at
the sarit'tirre -iot'destrOy existing
property values.
One observer scoffed this week
at the proximity of the 229 project
to a section of the county known
as "Little Mexico" just north of the
Union County line.
Developed, if you can call it
that, by well-to-do families who
should have known better and who
put a highly inflated value on a
dollar at the expense of the county,
the patch of mobile and makeshift
homes has been an environmental
nightmare from the start.
The observer mused that the
new landfill may be a plus, if the
county could push "Little Mexico"
into it when it opened. Amusing
but a bit off the point.
And the point is there have been
a good number of tax-producing
single family residences springing
up in that area the past five years
and those people are more than a
bit miffed at this project which
seems to have literally material-
ized from nowhere.
Which brings us to another
point: there's something amiss
with the fact that the county's
landfill and road engineer, Frank
Darabi, is fronting the C&D fill.
There's no evidence that Mr.
Darabi has done anything illegal,
but virtually no one believes he
hasn't at least tacitly agreed to sell
off the operation to a third party
once it is permitted and designed.
And because he is very capable

of doing both phases, and remains
the county's chief paid advisor on
landfill and environmental matters,
it emerges as a huge conflict of
interest.
Something ain't right.
So, it's not necessary that we
ditch the prospect of a C&D land-
fill inside Baker County altogeth-
er, but this thing needs another,
hard look.
A good start would be for the
Commission to reject the special
exception, and listen very carefully
to what the neighbors around the
Elledge-Sapp roads axis are saying
about projects like this. What they
say will be virtually the same as
what neighbors say every time
someone proposes a landfill near
their houses, or near the roads they
use daily.
Blindside people with projects
like this and their reactions are
very predictable.
SBack up and take a fresh look at
the entire process.



Bush signs

$282Kgrant

for the old jail

Dear Editor:
Last week Governor Jeb Bush
signed the 2005 2006 Florida bud-
get. With his signature came the final
approval for the special category
grant for the restoration of the Old
Baker County Jail. It totals $282,240.
SIn the spring of 2001, the Board of
County Commissioners and the
Baker County Historical Society
made the commitment to seek grants
from the state to restore the Old Jail.
The board hired veteran grant writer
Peg McCollum and the project took
off.
The late Mrs. McCollum served
as mentor, inspiration, and guide to
the society in this endeavor. The
commissioners contributed more than
$25,000 in cash and new roofs on the
buildings for their grant match.
The Baker County community
generously gave over $38,000,
exceeding the society's $25,000 com-
mitment for the grant match. Dona-
tions ranged from $5,000 each from
the Wal-Mart Distribution Center and
Modem Woodmen of American to
the change school children brought
when they came to tour the Old Jail.
Supporters attended fundraisers
such as the Gene Barber Art Show,
Haunted Jail and Fall Carnival, Arts
,and Crafts Festival, and many more.
Others bought cookbooks, came to
our yard sales, joined the society dur-
ing our membership drive, made
direct contributions, and wrote letters
supporting the grant applications.
The Baker County Historical So-
ciety thanks everyone who con-
tributed money, time, and enthusiasm
to the restoration goal. The result will
be the preservation of an important
landmark in our county's history and
a safe environment for books and
archives, as well as a comfortable
place for visitors and researchers.
We sincerely appreciate it.
KAREN THOMAS, PRESIDENT
Baker County Historical Society

I'd like to clarify something I
wrote in a column several weeks
ago, the one in which I referred to
school board members as the
"Stepford Board."
I was under the influence when
I wrote that punch drunk from an
endless stream of meetings devoid
of any discussion of issues, and
staggered by a consecutive string
of unanimous votes that the Guin-
ness World Book of Records
should consider.
But that was then.
At a workshop May 26, it was a
different story. It looked like it
might turn into a schoolyard brawl.
Sort of.
Relatively speaking.
Nobody actually cursed at,
screamed at, or threatened anyone
else. Nobody banged their shoe on
the table ala Nikita Kruschev. No-
body-left in a huff.
On a Saturday night at Pop's
Place, where county officials
sometimes work things out, it
would have been a snooze. But in
the school board meeting room, it
was a free-for-all.
It's as if you've been confined
to a wheelchair all your life and
they've discovered a miracle cure.
That first halting, agonizing step is
one you'll never forget.
So they debated. Sometimes ev-
en at a level a few decibels above
a snore.
The issue was impact fees -
how much to charge whom.
Generally speaking, it's not a
controversial subject. Most of
those who will have to pay don't
even live in Baker County yet.
Impact fees are assessed on new
construction to help alleviate the
cost of new growth, in terms of
roads, police and fire services, etc.
And, of course, schools.
The school board members for
some reason got their hackles up
over whether they should charge
the same impact fee for mobile
homes as for conventional single-
family homes.
The twist is that mobile homes
actually have more impact on the
school district because,people in
them send a higher ratio of chil-
dren to public schools.
And so, here's the tale of the
tape on how the members came
down on the issue:
In this corner, "Mean" Dean
Griffis, arguing an offshoot of the
communist motto: "From each ac-
cording to his ability; ,to each ac-
cording to his need."
In this corner, Paul "Mad Dog"
Raulerson, ably assisted by Karen
"Mac Daddy" McCollum and
Dwight "Killer" Crews.
Their strategy was two-fold:
(1) Mobile homes have a great-
er impact, so why should their
owners pay less?
(2) Rich people need love, too.
The only school board member
not to climb into the. ring was
"Passive" Patricia Weeks, who
watched silently from the grand-
stand.
The first jabs were thrown by
Mac Daddy ("Mobile homes im-
pact schools more.") and Mad Dog
("A mobile home is really a single-
family home.")
Mean Dean countered with ris-
ing indignation: "If people can af-
ford [big] homes, they can afford
Sto pay more."
Raulerson wasn't mad, but he
was dogged.
"If mobile homes have more
impact, why are we charging them
less?"
That shot of logic should have
staggered Griffis, but Referee

What if Washington was covered


in the style of 'People Magazine&?


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
U BEET 'E 'lD i
Politicians may do some pretty
dumb things from time to time, but
it could be worse.
.Okay, so the president has nom-
inated a guy for head of the United
Nations who even Jack Nichol-
son's character in Anger Manage-
ment couldn't make less truculent.
Okay, so House Majority leader
Tom Delay has more ethics issues
than Darth Vader. It could be worse.
Okay, we're embroiled in a war
we can't seem to find a way out of
and the North Koreans admit to
having nuclear weapons. Okay, so
gas prices are through the roof.
Okay, so Democrats and Republi-
cans can't even decide if they want
to upsize their Big Macs or not at
lunch. It could be worse. It could
be a lot worse.
People Magazine could be run-
ning the government.,
In a current issue, the cover sto-
ry was: Runaway Bride! What
Made Her Flee. Why He Still
Loves Her Will They Ever Wed? I
can see them rewriting that story
just a little to cover harder news.
Here's the retooled cover after last
week's private plane scare over
Washington DC: Runaway Vice
President! What Made Him Flee!
Why President Bush Still Loves
Him. Will He Ever Return.?
SSee it doesn't take a real stretch
of the imagination to see how this
could work. In the same issue,
they had an article entitled, Idol
Under Attack, which dealt with al-
legations that American Idol judge
Paula Abdul had an affair with ex-
finalist Corey Clark. With a few
changes, it could read Congress-
man Under Attack. Did Congress-
man Tom Delay accept millions in
questionable campaign contribu-
tions? Did he take personal trips
on taxpayer money? Is he carrying
Paula Abdul's love child? Okay, so
I made up one of those, but it still
looks like a story they might print.
Another possible story could
feature the opening of Anger Man-
agement 2, in which Buddy, play-
ed by Jack Nicholson, takes the
case of John Bolton, Undersecreta-


ry of State for Nuclear Issues who
has been tapped to take over as US
Ambassador to the United Na-
tions. Like Adam Sandler's char-
acter in the original movie, Bolton
has anger management issues.
Senators call him a bully and
arrogant. They claim he is impos-
sible to work with and brow beats
people who work under him. Even
Republicans claim he is everything
that a diplomat is not. Buddy is
called in to teach him to be more
civil, and at the end of the movie,
Bolton stands up at a Security
Council session and announces to
the diplomats his love and respect
for UN Secretary General Kofe
Anon. After that, everybody has a
big group hug.
In the most recent issue of Peo-
ple, we had a story entitled Lind-
say Lohan: Why So Thin. The
magazine posited that the formerly
curvaceous teen star might be suf-
fering from the same pressures to
lose weight that sent one of the Ol-
sen twins into rehab for anorexia.
Though most politicians seem to
be indeed Fat Cats, the story could
be reworked just a little.
Donald Rumsfeld: Why So
Mean? Is the Secretary of Defense
taking curmudgeon lessons from
Walter Matthau? In fact, is Secre-
tary of Defense Rumsfeld actually
Walter Matthau in disguise? Here
are pictures of the Secretary of De-
fense on a recent tour of military
bases in Iraq and next to it is a pic-
ture of Matthau in Grumpy Old
Men. Coincidence? You decide.
.One issue featured a story on
Britney Spears and husband Kevin
Federline called Taking It To The
Tube. Spears and Federline will
tell the tale of their courtship on a
new reality series. The series on
UPN will document their courtship






General C
1-


and marriage using their own per-
sonal video footage.
I think that would work for the
President and Mrs. Bush. After all,
Mrs. Bush proved she has a terrific
sense of humor at a recent roast of
the president. She certainly is as
interesting as Britney Spears and
can probably sing better.
Taking It To The Tube. First La-
dy Laura Bush and husband George
W. Bush will tell the tale of their
courtship on a new reality series
using personal video footage. The
footage will show shocking imag-
es of the president sleeping through
a national security briefing, sleep-
ing through a dinner with the Pres-
ident of Ghana and wrestling with
his dog on the front lawn during a
meeting with Prime Minister Tony
Blair. While the president is doz-
ing, Laura Bush instructs former
National Security Advisor Condy
Rice on troop movements in Iraq
and takes Vice President Dick Che-
ney to task about trying to monop-
olize the meeting. UPN officials
claim the show will make the
American people much more con-
fidant about who is really running
the country.
Speaking of the first family,
People claims the first daughters
could be getting their own reality
show Girls Gone Wild White House
Style, with the Bush girls taking
their show on the road on foreign
visits to Indonesia, Thailand and
Tokyo.
Not to be outdone, former Vice
President Al Gore's new book is
reviewed in People..The Wit and
Wisdom of Al Gore is said to be a
whopping 12 pages long and in-
cludes such humorous anecdotes as
"If a tree-hugger falls on Bill Clin-
ton, will he make a sound?"

Her Uncle Tiny killed

best friend in DUI wreck
Fifth grader Sheila Small of Macclenny was Sheila Small's
selected this year's winner of the Josh Knabb essay that
Award at Baker County Middle School as the helped her get
best student in the DARE anti-drug and anti-alco- Josh Knabb
hol education program. One of the criteria on Award as top
which she was chosen, according to Deputy DARE student
Alison Tomlinson, the school's DARE officer,
was her essay recounting a real-life experience involving her uncle
(she changed his name), who killed a friend while driving drunk.
The essay reads:
My Uncle Tiny used to be an alcohol user up until about 13 years ago.
It all happened after he and his best friend were at a bar in Jacksonville,
and the night it happened the police stopped my Uncle Tiny and his friend.
But instead of taking them both to jail for DUI because the cop knew my
whole family, the cop told my uncle that if he
would go straight home he would not take them
to jail;
On the way home, my Uncle Tiny wrecked on
the same road that my Nana lives on. He was
driving at the speed of 135 mph in a Z28 and it
rolled over and over about eight times.
. My family was not told about it until the next
day, and they were not sure if my Uncle Tiny
0 was alive or dead. But they found out that his
friend was killed in the wreck and that his body
was thrown out of the car and found on the side
Miss Small with Khabb Award of the road.
My Uncle Tiny left the wreck and was not
found for several days. He was scared that he was going to jail for killing
his best friend. But he was found and he went to court, and the other family
talked to the judge. They told him that the victim was my Uncle Tiny's best
friend.
The judge told him that he would have to live with the wreck and the
thought of being the driver of a car that killed his best friend. Still, to this
day my Uncle Tiny will not drive by where his best friend is buried. He still
goes to the place where the wreck happened, and will stay there for hours
and hours and cry.
He goes to the cemetery every year to place flowers on the grave on the
day his friend was buried and on his birthday, January 2 the same day as
my Uncle Tiny. That makes him even more sad. To this day he has never
gotten a new best friend, though he has friends. They are not like his best
friend. They did everything together.
And my Uncle Tiny does not drink alcohol because of this. He said it
makes him think about what happened to him.
So please, don't drink and drive.


Pot possession
A Glen St. Mary boy was ar-
rested May 25 for possession of
marijuana after he and two other
boys tried to hide from a deputy
on routine patrol.
Deputy James Marker saw the
boy, 17, along with a 15-year-old
and a 16-year-old, near Washing-
ton Street and CR 125 at about
12:30 am.
They bolted when they saw
him, and tried to hide behind a tree
in a yard on Washington.
They told the officer they ran
because they were afraid because
it was so late.
Deputy Marker, however, found
a glass pipe on the ground behind
the tree.
The eldest boy said it was his,
but denied having any marijuana.
When the officer asked him to
empty his pockets though, out
popped a bag of pot.
He was charged with misde-
meanor possession of marijuana
and possession of drug parapher-
nalia.
The other two boys were taken
to the jail where their parents
picked them up.

Threats at court
A 17-year-old Macclenny boy
was arrested May 26 after making
threatening gestures toward anoth-
er teen whom he'd allegedly rob-
bed last year.
The two were in court just be-
fore 3:00 pm for a hearing on the
robbery, when the 17-year-old
made a throat-slashing motion to-
ward the other boy, 15, then bump-
ed into him while leaving the
courtroom.
A witness confirmed the boy's
attempts at intimidation.
'He was charged with battery
and obstructing justice, a felony.


Drug trafficking brings 6 months


Circuit Judge David Glant sen-
tenced a Macclenny man to six
months in jail for trafficking in a
controlled substance and felony
possession of marijuana.
Michael Bennett Jr. was arrest-
ed January 14 after police stopped
his car on Steel BliJric R,. .J for
having a tail light out.
Mr. Bennett had 28 grams of
marijuana and 50 tablets of hy-
drocodone.
In addition to jail time, he must
serve five years of probation and
perform 200 hours of community
service. He also was fined $2500.
In other cases on a light court
docket May 25:

Arrest for

disorderly

intoxication
A man staying at a local motel
was arrested May 25 after causing
a disturbance at a convenience
store not long after being warned
about yelling obscenities and wav-
ing his arms in the air while stand-
ing in the middle of SR 121.
Deputy Bill Starling was in his
patrol car watching as Leon Amer-
son, 46, left the Country Club
Lounge around 2:00 am and went
to the middle of the road.
The arrest report did not list an
address for Mr. Amerson, who told
the officer he was staying at the
Travel Lodge across the highway.
Because Mr. Amerson smelled
strongly of alcohol and was having
difficulty maintaining his balance,
Deputy Starling gave him a warn-
ing and escorted him to the motel.
A short time later, Mr. Amerson
was at the Exxon making offen-
sive comments to the clerk.
He was charged with disorderly
intoxication.


Edwin Harden was sentenced
to 180 days in jail for grand theft
and grand theft auto.
Dennis Crews got 90 days in
jail for resisting an officer without
violence and reckless driving. He
also must serve two years' proba-
tion and perform 50ii l ,I of com-
munity service.
Shyanna Martin was sen-
tenced to 90 days in jail, with
credit for 53 already served, and
two years of drug-offender proba-
tion for attempting to purchase a
controlled substance.
She was one of 20 people ar-
rested in April during Operation
Fish Fry, which featured deputies
from Orange County who came
here for a few days to run drug


stings against buyers and sellers.
Ms. Martin also must perform
50 hours of community service.
Michael Bailey was sentenced
to 60 days in jail and three years'
probation for felony driving with a
suspended license and reckless dri-
ving. ,
Suzanne Gwin was ordered to
serve two years of drug-offender
probation and perform 100 hours
of community service for posses-
sion of cocaine and misdemeanor
possession of marijuana.
Nicholas Dovellos was sen-
tenced to one year of probation
and 24 hours of community ser-
vice for misdemeanor possession
of marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia.

Tries to outrun deputy on 1-10


A Jacksonville man speeding on
I-10 unsuccessfully tried to outrun
a pursuing deputy May 25 and was
charged with reckless driving and
driving with a suspended license.
Sean Ibana, 31, was eastbound
around 2:04 pm when he was
clocked driving 86 miles per hour
in the 70 mph zone.
Deputy Randy Davis, who was
running radar on the interstate near
Smokey Road, took off after Mr.
Ibana, who began weaving in and
out of traffic., forcing several cars
off the road.
He got off on the CR 125 exit,
heading south.
He pulled into the nursery just
past the Manntown Church and
drove behind a building.
When the officer drove into the
nursery, two woman pointed to
where Mr. Ibana had gone.
He told the officer he was try-
ing to "get away" because his li-
cense was suspended..
A computer check showed it
had been suspended 12 times for
failure to pay fines and failure to
appear in court.
Mr. Ibana also had an outstand-
ing warrant from Duval County.
In other driving-related cases:
SPaul McMahan, 20, of Lawtey
was arrested May 25 after being
clocked driving 101 mph north-
bound on SR 121 near the North-
east Florida State Hospital at 3:11
am.
Deputy Thomas Dyal stopped
him at the Raiford Road Church,
and noted barbed wire and tree
roots sticking out from both sides
of the car.
Mr. McMahan passed roadside
sobriety tests.
Genaro Harris, 19, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for hit and run
May 29 after backing into another

car at McDonalds, then taking off.
The other driver, William Gif-
ford, followed Mr. Harris to a con-
venience store on north Sixth
Street.
Mr. Harris denied denting Mr.
Gifford's car, then left.
Mr. Gifford called police, who
found Mr. Harris at the Boy Scout


Camp on Steel Bridge Road,
around 4:17 pm.
The damage to Mr. Gifford's
car was consistent with a trailer
ball on Mr. Harris' car.
In addition to leaving the scene
of an accident, Mr. Harris was
charged with driving with a sus-
pended license.

CoA board

still seeks

members

The Baker County Council on
Aging directors want to move
ahead with plans for a new facility
but will hold off naming a building
committee until it can add a few
members to a depleted board.
At the directors' meeting May
19, president Barbara Yarborough
asked each board member "to rec-
ommend three people who would
fit the bill."
"They need to be dedicated and
willing to put in the time... and
they should know what we're up
against," she said, referring to the
agency's tenuous financial condi-
tion.
The bylaws require a minimum
of 12 members.
Typically, anywhere from 8-10
attend regularly.
The board was diminished by
the recent death of Pete Harvey,
who was ardong the consistent
core that attended meetings.
Bob Lambright, Mac McCollum
and Cheryl Mobley are onthe nom-
inating committee.
Mr. Mobley suggested waiting
for new members to be added be-
fore naming a building committee.
Others agreed, thinking that a
new member with construction ex-
perience would be a good person
to anchor the committee.
The COA has been intent on
moving from the somewhat dilapi-
dated building in which it now re-
sides.
The county has earmarked funds
from the sale of the former health
department property for building a
new COA headquarters.
The property, located at south
Sixth and Lowder streets has been
up for sale for several years now.
At their meeting, board mem-
bers agreed to seek written confir-
mation from the county about oth-
er properties whose sale would
benefit the COA.
In other business, COA employ-
ees had a Memorial Day to remem-
ber they got the day off with pay.
The board approved reinstate-
ment of the holiday after it had
been dropped in the wake of finan-
cial troubles at the agency.
"We're nowhere near where we
were," said Mr. Lambright, adding
that the agency would like to use
the standard ten days county em-
ployees get off.
Ms. Yarborough said, "Until we
can get back to giving raises, this
is something we should do."


Ms. Wood given
promotion at bank
Dana Wood of Macclenny has been pro-
moted to the position of small business
development officer at the Glen St. Mary
branch of Mercantile Bank. She has been
with the organization since 1999 and for a
time was administrative assistant in the
commercial lending department at both
the Glen and Macclenny branches. Prior
to entering the banking business here, Ms.
.Wood was an administrative assistant and
supervisor at Prudential Insurance in
Jacksonville.

Punches teen
An 18-year-old Macclenny man
was arrested May 26 after punch-
ing his 16-year-old girlfriend in
the stomach and breaking a car
window, sending glass flying into
the back seat where she sat with
their child.
Garrett Gray was charged with
battery/domestic violence and
criminal mischief.
A witness said Mr. Gray and his
girlfriend were fighting inside the
car, when he got out and threw
something through the window.
The girl was treated for cuts.

Campers await departure to Cherry Lake on Tuesday
Rainy skies kept 29 Baker County children inside the ag center auditorium the mi. t,,in. of May 31 awaiting a school bus to take them to the
4-H camp at Madison County's Cherry Lake later that morning. In this photo passing the time with hand games are Chelsea Rhoden,
Kassidy Long, Cierra Rhoden, Kayla Kindig and Cheslsea Moore. The campers joined others from Bradford, Nassau and Madison coun-
ties at the week long program.


Accuses women of stealing her pills


Two cleaning women agreed
May 27 to take lie detector tests in
connection with prescription pills
missing from a Macclenny wo-
man's home.
Both Iris Alvarez, 40,'and Cyn-
thia Pearce, 41, agreed to take the
tests, which have yet to be sched-
uled.
Virginia Fontansantiago told po-
lice the two woman cleaned her
apartment on Second Street around
10:00 am.
They began in the bedroom,
where Ms. Fontansantiago had a


bottle containing 77 Darvocets on
her night stand.
She and a representative from
the Council on Aging had counted
them earlier in the day.
According to both Ms. Alvarez
and Ms. Fontansantiago, Ms. Al-
varez left the bedroom and began
cleaning the kitchen, as Ms.
Pearce finished mopping in the
bedroom.
Ms. Pearce told police she was
never alone in the bedroom.
The pending charges are grand
theft and exploitation of an elderly
person, both of which are felonies.


The manager at Gibson Mc-
Donald furniture store told police
May 24 that someone had stolen
six rolls of tent siding from the
loading dock behind the store.
Joel Barber valued the material
at $700.
He said he put the rolls on the
dock at about 1:30 pm, and they
were gone when he returned about
an hour and a half later.
Store employees unsuccessfully
searched the area around the store,
which is located in the Winn Dixie
shopping center on south Sixth
Street.


A homeless woman was charg-
ed May 28 with resisting an officer
without violence after giving a
false name, but then signing her
real name on a citation for drink-
ing in public.
Judy Smith, 44, also was charg-
ed with violating probation, a
felony.
Ms. Smith was drinking a beer
at the Boy Scout Camp on Steel
Bridge Road around 4:00 pm
when Deputy Sgt. Thomas Dyal
arrived.
He told her that drinking in
public is prohibited, and asked for
identification.
She said she didn't have any,
but that her name was "Diane
Carter."
Using that name, the deputy
completed a notice to appear.
However, she signed it "Judy
Smith."
When the officer pointed out
the discrepancy, she-said, "I'm sor-
ry, I signed my sister's name."
Her fingerprints came back as


"Judy Smith," who was wanted on
a warrant from Duval County for
violating probation.
In another property crime, Kirk
Gravelle, told police May 24 that
$1170 worth of tools were missing
from his garage on south Sixth
Street.
He said he suspected former
workers, but apparently had no
proof.

Focus meetings

The Baker County Commission
will hold three public meetings
with the Northeast Florida Region-
al Council to discuss the prelimi-
nary findings of the Rural Initia-
tive Focus Group study the council

The meetings will be on June 8

Jason and Coach Hart



Nassau grad credits

local instructor with

pulling him through


BY LORA GOODWIN
W. Nassau Journalism student
It was do-or-die time for Jason
Wheat. The senior at West Nassau
High School had one more chance
to pass the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test or he would not
receive a high school diploma.
Wheat passed the FCAT and
he gives much of the credit to a
WNHS teacher who lives Taylor.
"I would never have done it
without Coach (Bob,by) Hart,"
Wheat said. "I thank God he let me
come to this school, and I thank
God he put me in Coach Hart's
class."
Because of learning disabilities,
Wheat was eligible to waive the
FCAT and receive a special diplo-
ma. But his goal was to graduate
with a diploma like the rest of his
classmates.
"Jason personifies all that is
good about our kids today," Hart
said. "He set a high goal for him-
self and worked his butt off to
achieve it.
"The first day of class, this big,
soft-spoken kid came up to me and
said, 'Coach Hart, I'm Jason
Wheat. I'm glad I'm, in your
class,'"'Hart said. "It kind of sur-
prised me, and I told him I was
glad he was in my class too. He
told me then,, "Everyone said you
would make me pass the FCAT."'
Wheat set out to do just that. He
and Hart worked two or three days
after school each week despite
Hart's busy schedule which in-
cludes coaching year round.
"I would be coaching basketball
and Jason would be in the stands
doing his homework," Hart said.
"When he had a question, I would
tell my girls to keep running and
I'd help Jason for a minute and

Wheat said the hard work
off, and it was a huge burde
his shoulders when he passe
don't think I've ever been h
er," he said.
Hart said while he takes
pride in the accomplishment
his students like Wheat, that
enough.
"I'll never be satisfied un
my students pass it," said
whose students normally p&
better than a 90% rate. "I hat

I've ever seen. It should be s
ped just for the grief it puts

"I refuse'to teach the test
don't do anything special wit
of my students. The main th
worked on with Jason was his
fidence level. I had to con'
him he could do it."
The strategy worked as V
increased two performance 1
arid walked away from last w
West Nassau graduation w
high school diploma.
"Watching Jason walk a
the stage was one of the high
of my teaching career," Hart
"I've never been prouder o
student I've ever taught."
Hart did say there was a d
side to the 270 pound Wheat
complishments. "He kept hug
me at graduation and buste
lip.
"But it was all worth it. I t
with his grandparents after gr
tion, and they were thankin
for all I did for him. I told the
son had made my year. His g
mother hugged me and said
done much more than that fe
family."


The county's Building and Fa-
cilities Committee interviewed
employees of two more depart-
ments May 26, agreeing that both
the Council on Aging and Exten-
sion Service need new buildings.
"I see a bulldozer hitting when
you move out. But you may have
,,r to stay in that decrepit place for
awhile, so what are your immedi-
ate needs if you have to stay there
another two years?" Committee
Chairman Jim McGauley asked
Council on Aging representatives.
Council president Barbara Yar-
brough listed four: roof leak re-
pairs, handicap access, new floor-
ing and "panic bars" on exterior
doors.
"We literally have buckets when
it rains," said council finance di-
rector Kacie Kennedy.
There are other problems: only
two air conditioners for the entire
building, and one works intermit-
tently, the bathroom needs repairs
including flaking particle board
walls, a paint job throughout.
"Truthfully, it would be good
ching for all your committee members to
;on in walk through and ask yourselves
ig the if you'd want your mother, your
said. grandmother, yourself in those sur-'
Spaid roundings," suggested CoA Direc-
;n off tor Mary Baxla.

appi- money for roof repairs and paint,

Director Baxla said a new cen-
ter needs to include the transporta-
tion staff that about a year ago was
moved to the back of the county's
building and zoning office several
blocks from the senior center.
"There are three administrative
people in transportation, and we
want them back in our building,"
she said.
Grants from the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation were in
jeopardy because the transporta-
tion offices upstairs at the Senior
Center were not handicap accessi-
ble.
Some students needing volun-
teer hours to qualify for scholar-
ships have offered to help with
cleaning. Defendants with court-
ordered community service have
also been assigned cleaning duty
at the center and likely either,
theyor jail inmates could do paint-
ing.
"I want the same bulldozer -
because we have buckets to catch
leaks too. They've used gallons of
tar to patch the roof, but.there are
still holes all the way through you
could put this coffee cup in," said
Extension Director Mike Sweat.
At both buildings, employees
protect -computers and desks with
plastic covers, so leak repairs are a
priority. "In the auditorium, there
is mold and mildew it's there,
it's black and it's growing," Mr.
Sweat said.
The commission has'discussed
moving both the Fairgrounds and
the Extension Office to the St. Ma-
ry's Shoals Park in the north county.

PUBLIC HEARING
Pursuant to an application submitted by Baker C and D, Inc., to be granted a
special exception on property located in Section 12, Township 4 South, Range 20,
lying East of SR 229 South, North of Sapp Rd., and East of Will Elledge Rd.,
Containing approximately 217 acres in Baker County, Fl., the Baker County
Board of Commissioners, acting in its capacity as the Board of Adjustments will
consider the request at a public hearing scheduled for June 7, 2005 at 4:01 pm in
the County Commissioners' chambers of the Administration Building, 55 North
Third St., Macclenny, FL. On the date above mentioned, all interested parties
may appear and be heard with respect to the Special Exception request. The pur-
pose of the Special Exception is to allow a Class III disposal site in an
Agriculture area. Written comments for or against the Special Exception may be
sent to the Baker County Planning Department, 81 North Third St., Macclenny,
FL 32063. Faxed comments may be sent to (904) 259-5057. Copies of the Special

most weekends and many week-
days and nights for weddings,
family reunions, meetings and oth-
er public gatherings.
Building plans for a new Senior
Center are available through the
Area Agency on Aging, and grant
funds are possible if the structure
is to be a disaster shelter. The
council had to find emergency
shelter for 17 individuals during
the hurricanes last fall.
The facilities committee plans
its last interview, with Road Su-
perintendent Robert Fletcher, on
Thursday morning. A report to the
Baker County Commission will
come sometime in June.

'Sith' will satisfy die-hard 'Wars'fans


BY BOB GERARD
Entertainment Editor
It's been almost 30 years since
Star Wars burst onto the big screen
and changed the way we looked at
movies. Before Star Wars, science
fiction films were definitely low
budget affairs watched by only a
few die-hard fans of the genre.
Star Wars made fantasy and sci-
ence fiction mainstream.
It was with a little nostalgia and
a lot of regret that I watched Star
Wars: Episode III The Revenge of
the Sith last week. After all, Star
Wars was the first movie I ever
saw multiple times. When 1 was in
college, I watched Luke, Han and-
the rest 10 times (still a record for
me) on the big screen. Revenge of
the Sith marks the end of the Star
Wars saga and attempts, with some
success, to tie up all the loose ends:
It's a good movie, and the last
hour is really, really good. It is
successful in that fans leave the
theatre with most of their ques-
tions answered. What is less than

successful is more than made up
for by the final half of the film
when we see Anakin Skywalker
begin his descent into Darth Vader.
Friends tell me they went into
the movie with such high expec-
tations that they were disappoint-
ed. That was not the case with me.
After the abysmal Episode I and
the only so-so Episode II, I was
going in with pretty low ex-
pectations.
For the first half an hour, I was
afraid I might be right. There is a
visually stunning, but pretty low
intensity, tongue-in-cheek space
battle. I recently watched Star Wars
to get ready for this film, and the
progress of technology in 30 years
is amazing. George Lucas couldn't
have dreamed of doing what he
does in the first ten minutes of this
film way back in the summer of
1977.
The open ten or fifteen minutes
is about Lucas demonstrating all
the bells and whistles. The battle
between the Republic and the Sep-
aratist space ships is eye-popping,
but nothing underneath it. Anakin
and Obi Wan Kenobi are so low
key that it takes whatever intensity
there might have been in the scene
and throws cold water on it. The
only saving grace is getting to see
just what the droid R2 D2 is capa-
ble of accomplishing.
This is the technique created by
Albert Broccoli in all those James
Bond flicks he produced give
them.five or ten minutes of breath-
less action and then start the story.
That's what happens here. After
we get finished with the opening
sequence, Lucas starts the real sto-
ry and the movie slowly improves.
I didn't have much use for male
model Hayden Christiansen, the
Aussie actor who Lucas cast as
Anakin. In Episode II, he couldn't
deliver a realistic line to save his
life or the movie, but I have to
hand it to him, his Jekyll and Hyde
transformation is artfully done. He
still can't play a realistic love scene
with Natalie Portman, but he can
turn evil.
I'm not giving anything away
by divulging the storyline. Anakin
becomes Darth Vader in order to
save wife Padrii's'life. The Srn.i'-


tor Palpatinc, Darth Sidius, the evil
Lord of the Sith, convinces him
that by turning to the dark side, he
will learn to control life and death.
We see effectively that the evil
is inside Anakin in the first few
minutes, and he is easily lured into
the dark side. The Jedis are right to
be suspicious of Anakin's friend-
ship with Senator Palpatine, but
even Obi Wan can do nothing to
stop him.
Ewan McGregor, who admits to
being embarrassed by the lines he
had to deliver in Episodes I and II,
shows much more conviction in
the role of a middle aged Obi Wan.
Once again, Frank Oz, the puppe-
teer who is Yoda, steals every
scene. His three foot puppet is
much more multi-dimensional
than most of the actors.
That is certainly the case with
Natalie Portman. She demonstrat-
ed some acting chops in last year's
Closer, but didn't get a chance to
do much more than look radiant in
this film. I think Lucas realized
there was absolutely, no chemistry
between Portman and Christiansen
and cut their scenes back to the ba-
sics.
Dramatically, this movie is run
by Ian McDiarmid, playing Sena-
tor Palpatine/Darth Sidius, who is
terrific as the puppet master who
makes Anakin go through his pac-
es. He also has some pretty im-
pressive battle scenes.
I won't spend a lot of time dis-
cussing the final hour of the film
because I don't want to give any-
thing away. Suffice to say that by
the time Anakin and Obi Wan have
Sthe climactic battle, Anakin is un-
recognizable as the young Jedi
from Episode II and is clearly
Darth Vader, suit or no suit.
The final hour is as good as
anything you'll see in any of the
other Star Wars films. Lucas knew
that to make work as a whole, the
transformation from Anakin to
Darth Vader had to be believable.
He achieved that in spades.
In all, Revenge of the Sith was a
big improvement over Episodes I
and II, and though not as, consis-
tently good as The Empire Strikes
Back, it.should: not be missed by
Star Wars fans: ; .. .

Consumers urged to


get free credit reports


Florida,Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging con-
sumers to take advantage of a law
that requires major credit report-
ing services to provide free credit
reports.
The amendment to the Fair
Credit Reporting Act was de-
signed to provide consumers who
cannot or will not pay a fee for
the reports to access them for free
once a year. The law has been
phased-in across the United
States, and Florida residents will
be eligible for the documents on
June 1.
"Reviewing your credit history
is one of the most important steps
people can take to avoid identity
theft," Bronson said. "If con-
sumers find out that someone is
using their identity or credit cards
without their knowledge, the
credit reports may be the first hint
they have that there is a problem."
A credit report contains infor-
mation about a consumer's credit
history, including'a listing of all
credit cards, whether bills have
been paid on time, and whether
the consumer has been sued, ar-
rested or filed for bankruptcy. Na-
tional consumer reporting agen-
cies sell the information to credit


card companies and other credi-
tors, insurers, employers and oth-
er businesses that use it to deter-
mine whether to approve an appli-
cation for credit, insurance, loans,
and employment. A poor credit
history can result in rejection of
credit or higher interest rates on a
loan.
"Consumers should regularly
review these reports for any mis-
takes," Bronson said. "Identity
theft is not the only concern. False
information that hurts someone's
credit rating can mean the differ-
ence of whether they can buy a
home or not. It is important to en-
sure the information is accurate
and up to date, especially before
making a major purchase."
Consumers can challenge and
change incorrect information on
the reports. The three major credit
reporting agencies are Equifax,
Experian and TransUnion. To ob-
tain a free copy of reports from
these agencies, log onto
http://www.AnnualCreditReport.c
om. People should be wary of any
other sites which claim to offer
free reports but steer consumers
to sites that offer services by sub-
scription for a fee. Consumers can
also order their reports by calling
toll-free 1-877-322-8228.

bers rejected the study's recom-
mendation that mobile homes be
charged the same fee as conven-
tion single-family homes.
The issue produced a spirited, if
not heated, debate, which is highly
unusual for a school board that in-
variably presents a unified public
facade.
The key point was that mobile
homes produce a higher ratio of
students than other types of hous-
ing, according to the study.
Yet Mr. Griffis argued that mo-
bile home owners generally are less
able to pay a higher fee than own-
ers of larger conventional houses.
"It's not right from a moral
standpoint for them to be paying
the same as someone in Copper
Creek living in a 3000- or 4000-
square-foot home" he said. "If peo-
ple can afford that size of home,
they can afford to pay more."
Paul Raulerson, however, said
"a mobile home is really a single-
family home" and "should pay an
equal share of the burden.
"If mobile homes have more
impact, why are we charging them
less?"
Karen McCollum and Dwight
Crews each commented on the un-
fairness of penalizing people who
work hard to do better, to be able
to afford a larger home.

Both noted that the size of a
home does not determine its im-
pact on schools or other services.
"It's the same two kids, the same
two cars, whether it's a 1500- or a
3000-square-foot home," Ms. Mc-
Collum said near the beginning of
the workshop. "You could say they
have more ability to pay, but the
impact is the same."
But it was the back-and-forth
.between Mr. Raulerson and Mr.
Griffis that threatened to grow in-
tense.
Superintendent Paula Barton,
perhaps sensing the rising heat, in-
terrupted the discussion to try to
calm the waters.
"Our differences must be aired in
a professional manner," she said.
However, she may have gone a
little too far in saying she is thank-
ful the board settles its differences
"behind closed doors."
After the workshop, Mr. Griffis
made a point to clarify that the
board does not settle its differenc-
es behind the scenes because that
would be a violation of the state
Sunshine Law.
After Ms. Barton's comments,
the debate was revived, as Mr. Grif-
fis argued that to charge equal fees
to mobile home owners would be
to "penalize them for being poor."
That was in response to Ms.


McCollum saying owners of more
expensive dwellings were being
penalized for working hard.
After Mr. Griffis' comment, she
said, "Either way, it seems unfair
to someone."
During a lull in the debate, the
members spontaneously broke into
two discussion groups Mr. Raul-
erson, Mr. Crews and district fi-
nance director Marcelle Richard-
son, who is spearheading the im-
pact fee movement, and Patricia
Weeks, Ms. Barton, Mr. Griffis
and Ms. McCollum.
From that interlude, the board
came to a consensus $4000 for
conventional homes, $3000 for
mobile homes and $1880 for mul-
ti-family buildings, although that
was later adjusted to $2000.

Governor urges Floridians to prepare

early for upcoming hurricane season


The 2005 Atlantic hurricane sea-
son officially began Wednesday,
June 1. Hurricane forecasters are
predicting an above-normal hurri-
cane season and state officials urge
residents to review their prepared-
ness plans and re-stock disaster
kits during the 12 day sales tax
holiday, which also started June 1.
"For six months each year, hur-
ricanes are a fact of life in Florida
and we must all be prepared," said
Governor Jeb Bush. "The state's
new sales tax -holiday is an oppor-
tunity to save money purchasing
supplies every resident needs go-
ing into hurricane season. I urge
all Floridians to take advantage of
these savings and prepare now for
the season ahead."
The National Hurricane Center
in Miami predicts a 70% probabil-
ity of above average activity dur-
ing the 2005 hurricane season. The
forecast predicts 12-15 tropical
storms, with 7-9 storms becoming
hurricanes, and 3-5 reaching major
strength (Catelory 3, 4, or 5 inten-
sity on the Saffir-Simpson Scale,
or maximum sustained winds of
111 mph or greater).
"Every Floridian should be able
to answer three important ques-
tions," said Director Craig Fugate
of the Florida Division of Emer-
gency Management. "What are the
hazards in my community, what
do they mean to me, and what is
my plan of action to deal with,
these hazards? Now is the time to
prepare and be ready. to act when
called to do so by local officials."
Emergency managers across the
state are promoting personal re-
sponsibility for disaster planning.
Family plans should include iden-
tifying emergency contact num-
bers, rally points and safe shelter -
either in the home, with a friend or
family member or at a local public
shelter.
"With nearly 17 million resi-
dents in the state, it is essential that
people who live in evacuation
zones and mobile home communi-
ties identify the nearest local shel-
ter as part of their hurricane
plans," said Director Fugate. ,
Governor Bush last week sign-
ed into law (HB 6001) establishing
a sales tax holiday on disaster-sup-
ply items to help Floridins pre-
pare for this year's season. The
sales tax' holiday, June 1-12, in-
cludes the following items:
Flashlights $20 or less
Weather radios, portable ra-
dios or two way radios $50 or less
First aid kits $50 or less
Gas or diesel fuel tanks $25 or
less
Flexible waterproof sheeting
$50 or less


Ground anchor system or tie
down kit $30 or less
Regular types of portable light
batteries $30 or less
Non-electrical food coolers
$30 or less
Portable generators $750 or
less
A complete list of tax-exempt
items can be found at www.my-
florida.com or www.FloridaDisas-
ter.org.
"Prepare now, save money and
avoid long lines, added Director
Fugate. "There is no excuse not to
be ready."
Residents should take stock of
their disaster-supply kits, keeping
in mind that canned goods and
other items should be recycled,
flashlights and batteries checked,
replacing depleted supplies. Every
home can use a NOAA weather ra-
dio. The annual hurricane season
ends on November 30.

National Trails Day is June 4, ing locations:
2005, and everyone is encouraged.
to visit a state forest and start your SLake City Live Oak Lake City
Trailwalker program. The Depart- Starke Chiefland Live Oak
ment's Division of Forestry over- Macclenny


sees the management and protec-
tion of the state's nearly 1 million
acres of forest land.
This year's National Trails Day
theme is "Take the Path to a
Healthier You." The American
Hiking Society is using this day to
bring greater awareness to trails,
as well as promoting the many
benefits and pleasures that are as-
sociated with walking and hiking.
The Florida State Forests Trail-
walker Program started in 1999
and was designed to encourage
people to visit and hike the many
trails that are located in state
forests. An incentive to participat-
ing in this program, besides recre-
ating and enjoying the beauty of
Florida's many state forests, is the
recognition a person receives
once a level of the program has
been accomplished.
While National Trail Day is a
single-day celebration of the ben-
efits of hiking, the spirit of good
health and exercise can be prac-
ticed every day of the year in
Florida's state forests. For more
information on the Trailwalker
Program, write to' Division of
Forestry, 3125 Conner Blvd., C-
25, Tallahassee, FL 32399-1650,
