;day hearing protest they are too high, suggest re-visit


Impact fees are heading back for workshop


BY NANCY SZANTO ,: .-
News Editor
Only a couple of the 16 speakers .::
at the June 7 Baker County Com-
mission meeting had anything posi-
tive to say about impact fees. And
even those few want lower fees over-
all and exemptions for anyone al-
ready living in Baker County.
All speakers protested the antici-
pated $8000-10,000 overall fee as
too high, suggesting the county start -
with a few thousand dollars and
work up gradually over several
years.
"If I'd read it would be $2500 in-
cluding the School Board, I would
feel it was fair. But $7000-10,000 is
unreasonable," said Rosa Wilson.
The county is proposing to enact
a total $3432 base fee: $1500 for
roads, $704 for sheriff's department, -
$300 for emergency services, $678
for fire department, $250 for recrea-
tion. However, that is for a 1500
square foot home; larger homes
would incur a $2 per square foot ad-
ditional fee.
Macclenny and Glen St. Mary are expect-
ed to enact identical fees, a recommendation
from engineer Frank Darabi of Gainesville,
who conducted the county's study. The fig-
ures he derived came from building permits
the past few years plus projects the county
knows are coming.
SThe commission and its attorney Terry
Brown carefully noted several times that the

Speaker Timmy Anderson presented a petition and termed the proposed fees a "big step."


county has not yet agreed to the School
Board's proposed $4000 for conventional
homes, $3000 for mobile homes, $2000 per
multi-family unit.
The two boards will meet in a joint work-
shop at 9 am next Monday, June 13. The
commission also promised the approximately
50 citizens attending the June 7 public hear-
ing an evening workshop will be scheduled to
discuss a dozen points attorney Brown jotted
down as people spoke.


Among those will be a possible exemption
for people replacing a home; this is already
written into the proposed ordinance for mo-
bile home "switchouts." Both will be null if
the original home or trailer is retained as a
rental.
Another issue raised by Kenny Shook was
a possible exemption under the "family lot"
zoning provision, in which land can be given
to a relative. Mr. Shook said he had removed
two old dwellings with plans to replace them


with newer homes for his daughters.
But Mr. Brown said it is illegal
under federal and state laws to only
tax newcomers to the county al-
S though they are the main focus of
Sthe impact fees.
"You need to understand the is-
sues the commission is facing. De-
velopment is coming and the county
has got to pay for services. So which
do you think is fairer: to increase ad
'. valorem taxes on the people already
: here, or impact fees on mostly new
people?" Mr. Brown asked, enumer-
A: ating the need for sheriff's patrol
cars, ambulances, fire engines, parks
and recreation and road improve-
ments.
"We may be the only county with
500 miles of unpaved roads. We can
maintain them as is, but not with an-
other subdivision on a particular
road," pointed out Commission
Chairman Julie Combs.
At the board's request, attorney
Brown is drafting an ordinance that
will require developers to pave ex-
isting roads to get clearance for a new subdi-
vision.
"I find it hard tobelieve we've got to take
this big a step to start with," said Timmy An-
derson. "Let's look at different avenues than
taxing our children."
Developer George Knabb Jr. produced a
real estate ad from St. Johns County: a 1261
square foot home with a $639,000 price tag.

Michael Crews seems to find
himself in the news on Memorial
Day weekends.
In 2004, he and another county
deputy were wounded in a gun bat-
tle with a robbery suspect in Glen
St. Mary. They killed the suspect
and the shooting retained high-pro-
file status for several weeks.
This year, Mr. Crews was once
again front and center during the
summer's first holiday weekend.
This time, he was firing shots again,
figuratively, and his target was a
proposed landfill off SR 229 south
of Sanderson.
The site near Elledge Road isn't
far from a 30-acre tract and new
homes owned by Deputy Crews
and one of his broth-
ers.
Once the neigh- .
borhood got wind
nearly two weeks
ago that a landfill
application was the
the works, things
started to move fast.
What happened
the following six
days was a textbook
case in organizing
grass-roots acti-
vism. It sent Baker
County commis-',
sioners scurrying
for political cover,
and killed the land-
fill proposal.
If a landfill or
similar facility is
ever proposed for
anywhere in Baker
County remote or
otherwise people
are going to look Michael Crew
back to Memorial
Day weekend, 2005 to remember
how it's done.
Mr. Crews is this week receiving
much of the credit from both
sides of the controversy for orga-
nizing opposition to the landfill.


Interviewed this week, he said
he first heard about the proposed
landfill in a telephone call May 28
from a person he believed connect-
ed to the New River landfill. (No
one there admitted making the call).
"That person told me three com-
missioners had met at the site and
this thing had already been decid-
ed," he recalls.
"I called Junior (his brother) and
we decided we weren't going to let
that happen. If we fight it and lose,
that's one thing; if it's a done deal
and we don't do something about
that, it's another deal."
About that time, a handful of
landowners on or near Elledge
Road sounded the alarm when they
received letters informing them of a
public hearing June 7 on the pro-


posal for a Class III (anything but
garbage) landfill.
A core group formed consisting
of the Crews brothers, Gail Elledge,

'Not sensitive' to landowners,


engineer withdraws application


BY JIM McGAULEY
Press Publisher
The county's landfill and envi-
ronmental engineer headed off what
promised to be one of the liveliest
public hearings in recent memory
when he cancelled his application
for a Class III construction debris
landfill south of Sanderson.
The hearing was to be have been
Tuesday afternoon of this week. In-
stead, each of the five county com-
missioners received beforehand a
written statement from Engineer
Frank Darabi of Gainesville.
A contrite Mr. Darabi, who pub-
licly said last Wednesday he was
withdrawing the landfill applica-
tion, penned a two-page statement
he originally intended to read to the
board Tuesday.
"I admit and regret that my in-
tentions, while for the good of Bak-
er County, may have been uninten-
tionally not sensitive to the con-
cerns of the affected landowners,"
the engineer-wrote.


"I miscalculated the level of op-
position and for that I am sorry."
The last sentence is a bit of an
understatement in light of the ex-
plosion of protest that erupted over
the Memorial Day holiday weekend
once word of the application be-
came public (see related article).
In a telephone interview at mid-
day Tuesday, the engineer said he
had been asked to stay away from
the meeting later that afternoon.
"Mr. Robinson (Commissioner
Alex) called me and said it'd proba-
bly be better to stay away until this
dies down a little," said Mr. Darabi.
Chairman Julie Combs made ref-
erence to the written statement, and
requested the engineer appear be-
fore the board in a public session at
the next meeting June 20.
"I was naive enough to think
there would be no opposition," he
said during the telephone interview,
also revealing that he offered to re-
sign at the Tuesday meeting.
Mr. Darabi conceded he is con-
cerned about his consulting contract


status with Baker and several neigh-
boring counties in the wake of the
landfill controversy.
He has made conflicting state-
ments about whether he was front-
ing for as yet unnamed private trash
hauling firms when he applied for
the Class III special zoning excep-
tion under the name Baker C and D,
Inc.
He proposed to site the landfill
for construction debris on a 217
acre tract at Elledge Road and CR
229 north of the Union County line.
While insisting to the board that
no side deals or promises with trash
haulers preceded the application,
Mr. Darabi nonetheless asserted he
wanted control as a private individ-
ual over the permitting and design
process to protect the county's in-
terests.
"I alone decided it would be best
if I controlled the site until there
was adequate financial and contrac-
tual language to protect the best in-

resigns


amid fog


of doubt

Prosecutor says pact
with county not tied
to possible charges

State Attorney Bill Cervone of
Gainesville said this week's res-
ignation agreement involving a
suspended administrative clerk
approved by the Baker County
Commission will not affect his de-
cision on whether to press crimi-
nal charges against her.
The board passed a consent
motion on Tuesday accepting both
a resignation letter from Suzanne
Rhoden of Sanderson, and a four-
part "Settlement Agreement and
General Release."
The one-page document pre-
pared by Ms. Rhoden's Jackson-
ville attorney and County Attor-
ney Terry Brown, stipulates the
resignation is voluntary, thus
shielding the ex-employee's ac-
cumulated sick leave and one-
fourth of unused sick leave.
The value of accrued leaves
that will now be paid was not im-
mediately known.
Ms. Rhoden was suspended
without pay last month after an
audit revealed nearly $14,000 in
cash receipts from the county's
animal control operation had
bi'en unaccoutied for. She was;
responsible for receiving funds;
from the animal pound and de-
positing them.
Tuesday's settlement binds the
county to take no action against
its ex-worker that could jeopar-
dize retirement benefits. Con-
versely, it prevents Ms. Rhoden
from taking action against Baker
County on any issue arising from
her seven-year employment.
Prosecutor Cervone, who was
back in Gainesville after a week's
vacation the same afternoon as
the agreement was approved, said
he expected several "loose ends"
of his office's probe of the theft
allegations will be completed up-
on his return.
"I had not made a decision
(whether to prosecute) before I left
and I expect one will be forth-
coming," said the prosecutor.
"In any case, it will be inde-
pendent of any action taken by
either party up to this point. It
(the settlement) won't bind us
any more than I could bind what
they do."
Indications were strong that a
deal between the attorneys was in
the works last week when a
scheduled "pre-termination" con-
ference at the county administra-
tive office was cancelled. It was
to have been on May 31.


Fees vote

is delayed

The Baker County School
Board did not formalize its re-
quest for an impact fee at its June
6 meeting because the proposal
had not been completed in time.
The board can vote on it at the
next meeting June 20 or call a
special meeting to adopt the pro-
posal.
Because the board cannot le-
gally pass its own impact fee; it
must submit a request to the
county commission for approval
and enactment.
Board members had hoped to
present their proposal to the com-
mission June 13, but that time
frame is uncertain, especially in

Lovurn Rivers, Kay Force and Ger-
ald Ray Rhoden, a fellow deputy.
They met at Ms. Rivers' home
and decided to call a community
meeting for the evening of May 7,
the day after Memorial Day.
Territories were assigned for
handing out 1500 flyers they hasti-
ly printed announcing the meeting,
and the group split up over the
holiday weekend to hand-deliver
them. They blanketed an swatch of
land roughly running from the Un-
ion County line north to Mud Lake
Road, then east to 121.
"We also told people to call
landowners who live out-of-town
and make sure they knew about
it," said Mr. Crews. "We also tried
to get back to those who were
gone over the holiday."
They procured the most logical
and convenient location the San-
derson United Revival Center -
and worked almost up until the
time of the meeting that evening
making sure people knew about, it.
"I didn't sleep Monday night, I
was so worried about the turnout,"
Mr. Crews confessed. "I truly
couldn't have told you it was go-
ing to be 25 or 325."
He should have bet on the latter
S number.
SJust before the meeting was to
begin, Michael called his brother
to get some hint of what he could
expect when he drove up to the
church. His fears were unfounded.
"He told me 'You just have to
see it, there's cars everywhere."'
His nerves settled a bit and Mi-
chael Crews went on to emcee the
packed meeting, organizing further
S opposition to the application and
making plans for everyone to re-
convene at this week's public hear-
ing:
The public hearing that never


'tookplace.
Within hours, applicant Frank
Darabi of Gainesville decided to
withdraw the request (see related
article). County commissioners,
including Julie Combs, whose dis-
trict envelopes the 229 corridor,
were quickly backing away from
the idea that some had openly sup-
ported earlier as a revenue source.
The grass-roots campaign had
worked.
"What did we learn? We learn-.
ed that the public basically didn't
know anything about this," declar-
ed Mr. Crews.
"We also didn't talk to a soul
who was for it, whether they lived
out there or not. People are just
dead set on not having Baker
County become a dumping ground
for other counties.
"A lot of people who've con-
tacted me the past week said they
were behind us because they don't
want something like this happen-
ing in their part of the county. We
had people at the meeting from
Macclenny and Baxter."
In an ironic twist, Mr. Crews is
in the process of forming his, own
business building debris removal
and site cleanup.
"I was very clear to Mr. Darabi
when I first talked to him. I agreed
that Baker County could use a
place to dump this kind of stuff.
But I know there has to be a better
spot than out there."
There is no concrete evidence
that county commissioners dis-
cussed the proposal among them-
selves as alleged, but the allega-
tiori' itself was, according to mem-
bers of the core protest group, suf-
ficient motivation for most of the
persons they contacted to become
involved.
"They felt like we did. We just
weren't going to let them get away
with it."

the written statement.
By "turned it over," he means
selling it. At the time he applied
for the permit, the engineer placed
at $25,000 binder with Rayonier.
He estimates he spent $4000 on
the application itself.
In an apparent contradiction,.he

Inpact fee, landfill meetings are


examples of democracy at work


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Commentary
I was going to write about the
intricacies of impact fees this
Week, but democracy intervened.
County commissioners held a
public hearing on the fees Tuesday
night, probably thinking they were
on the fast track to enact.
After all, up to that point they'd
been riding the express train, plan-
ning to have the law on the books
by July 1.
Waiting on the platform, howev--
er, were a group of citizens wanting
to do a little back-seat conducting.
Chairwoman Julie Combs sat
with a stack of requests from peo-
ple who signed up to offer their in-
sight and advice.
And one-by-one they did just
that. Most were uncomfortable
speaking to a roomful of politi-
cians, reporters and fellow citi-
zens, but they told their stories -
usually personal, nearly always
thoughtful.
And in the end, effective.
Ms. Combs and the rest of the
board agreed to schedule a work-
shop to consider the points raised
by the public.
It was a textbook example of


Impact fee rates

need modification

Dear Editor:
This letter is in response to your
recent articles about impact fees.
Contrary to what some may be-
lieve, most of the homes in Copper
Creek are not 3000-4000 square
foot homes.
My husband and I live in that
neighborhood and I would venture
to say that most of the families liv-
ing there are working people,
some with young families working
hard to have something nice.
The new impact fees would, in
reality, affect anyone building a
new home or buying a new mobile
home. I find it amazing that people
who have lived in the county for
many years will have to (if they
want to build a new home in the
future) help pay for new facilities,
roads and schools for incoming
people that developers are bring-
ing into the county.
Let the new people here pay the
fees and the people who have sup-
ported this county for years be ex-
empt from impact fees.
We live in a 2028 square foot
house, and if we were to build it
this summer, it would cost about
$8488 more just for the impact
fees. I wonder what more of an
impact I would be having on Bak-
er County, since I am already here
with no added people in my
household or burden on the coun-
ty's resources.
About $4000 of that fee would
be for schools, although I would
not be bringing any children into
the school system.
There should be adjustments for
persons who have no children to
use school resources or otherwise
don't cause an added burden on
the count\.. Let the developers.
who stand to make enormous prof-
its, pay the fees.
Ihope our public officials take
their time and study this situation a,
little longer, and maybe make some
adjustments. They want to hurry
so they can get the fees passed be-
fore all the new construction on
big subdivisions begins, but please
consider the long-time residents of
the county. '

democracy in action.
But it wasn't the only one here
recently.
Exactly one week prior to the
impact fee hearing, a few hundred
people filed into a south Sander-
son church to air their displeasure
at plans to put a landfill in their
neighborhood.
The citizen-leaders conducted a
by-the-book campaign, going
door-to-door to educate, motivate
and congregate the people, and
making sure the media were there
to bear witness.'
Again, it worked.
The landfill proposal was tossed
in the trash the very next day, even
before the citizen uprising made
its way to the commission cham-
bers.
Coincidentally, the proposal had
been scheduled to be on Tuesday's
agenda. Had it remained there,
along with the impact fee hearing,
it would have been a perfect storm
of vox populi.
It's easy, as a reporter, to grow
cynical about the way things work.
We sit in workshop after work-
shop, hearing after hearing and
meeting after meeting, usually
withonly other reporters and gov-
ernment officials in attendance as


so many aspects of people's lives
are decided without their input.
It's hard to say whether they
don't know, don't care or don't
feel they can make a difference.
To be honest, I've always been
skeptical about how much influ-
ence the average person can have
on the heavy machinery of govern-
ment.
That's why it's so heartening to
see it happen.
Especially in a era when intol-
erance, name-calling, finger-point-
ing, shouting and outright lying
passes for political discourse.
Especially when patriotism is
defined by trite sayings on bumper
stickers or the bombastic bleatings
of no-talent country singers mak-
ing a career out of two-and-a-half
minutes of jingoistic disharmony.
What democracy is or at least
what it was meant to be is a few
hundred people taking time out of
their lives to drive to a church in
Sanderson or commission cham-
bers in Macclenny on a sweltering
day, still in their work clothes,
squeezing in to a packed room, lis-
tening to others and waiting to be
heard, then standing up to tell their
elected leaders just what kind of
community they want to live in.


Takin GOP view of issues

does t equate to 'informed'


Dear Editor:
Regarding the writer last week
of the letter headlined "Seeks po-
litical integrity again," her goal
was to be informed so she could
make good, informed choices
when she voted.
It looks to me that she went to
Washington as a Republican, stud-
ied with the Republicans and came
home as a Republican. If this lady
is truly seeking political integrity,
she should understand integrity be-
fore she asks us to go along with
the version George Bush is giving
us. He has not shown me any trust-
worthiness or honesty.
George Bush ran on "cleaning
up the White House" but it looks
like he moved it to Crawford, Tex-
as. He also misled us into a war
with false reasons. If you lie to the
government, you go to jail; if he
lies to us, it's okay. Hmm.
I do not like his Social Security
reform and I don't like it pushed
off on us. I do not like the Patriot
Act that lakes a\\ a some of our
liberties to fight "terrorists." One
should never give up liberty for se-


curity.
The Republicans in Washington
have shown me they will use pow-
er in any way they can to get What
they want, even if it's changing the
rules.
They try to get a dirty name
across every time they use the
word "liberal." If you say anything
to them, they scream "abortion." If
you don't believe in abortion, don't
get one. Simple.
Republicans are against liberal
judges and trial lawyers, but any-
one is a "liberal" who doesn't
agree with them. Judges and law-
yers should follow the law, wheth-
er they are liberal or conservative.
It's also coming to a point where
you have to be a Republican to join
a church. I will never change, so
don't push me to just go along with
the crowd. We should not have to
vote in a church; keep the voting
places separate. Churches are for
worship.
I ask our elected Democrats in
this county to start acting like Dem-
ocrats again and be proud of it.

'Visitation' isnot always that


Dear Editor:
This letter is in reference to the
child visitation system.
It seems the parent who has the.
child living with:them can eVade,
,any courtoirder.` Weeks can pass
with no visits to0'the other parent-
for one reason or another. Weeks
can turn into months with no .isits
or paper% ork, while whichever
parents the child lives with fills his
;or her head with lies and false ac-
cusations.. '
When childreki do riot see both
parents and are exposed daily only,
to one parent, they think what they
hear is right because they haven't
seen or talked to the other parent.


The children can be abused ver-
bally and emotionally into believ-
ing the other parent doesn't care
for them, and they will think this is
true.
Step-parents can also be con-
stantly under the gun for caring for
the children. Children are shaken
to see a step-parent because of
what another parent says, and
sometimes a step-parent can be us-
ed as an excuse as to why visita-
tion is not allowed.
Don't judge someone until you
walk in their shoes, for shoes
come in all sizes.

Commissioner Combs


failed her constituents

'miserably' on landfill
Dear Editor:
There are several issues that resulted in. last week's dump proposal
getting dumped.
First, it is clear that when such a site is going to be considered, the
number one priority should be the location. Baker County needs a con-
struction debris landfill; however, careful attention should be given
when selecting the site.
Commissioner Julie Combs suggested that the NIMBY (not in my
backyard!) was in play here. Not so. What was in play was the NIABY
(not in anybody's backyard!) syndrome. Not even her backyard.
There is plenty of open land in Baker County accessible from state
roads, therefore deferring maintenance costs to the state instead of
Baker County taxpayers alone, especially when the landfill is going to
be privately owned.
Frank Darabi, who (for now at least) is the county engineer and ad-
visor to the county board, had a personal financial stake in the project,
and that is like leaving the fox to watch the hen house. Mr. Darabi ap-
peared to have some commissioners standing in a dump smelling mon-
ey, while trying to convince opponents they would be smelling roses .
while living in a dump. Some of Mr. Darabi's comments to the media,'
were ludicrous and insulting.
SWhich brings up a third issue,Insulted is what the voters of District
one were by their elected commissioner sounding out in favor of the
dump. When Commissioner Combs was contacted by some of her con-
stituents, she said, "I support the landfill and I am excited about the
revenue that will be generated by it."
Well, I'll bet she was! How ironic is it that the name which appeared
on the exception application, C&D, Inc., bears the same initials as
Combs and Darabi? (Actually it stood for "construction and demolition
debris.)
Since Mr. Darabi withdrew his application last week, Commissioner
Combs has been marching to a different beat. She has had more posi-
tions on this landfill than a two-hour yoga session. In the beginning she
was "excited" and now she says she wouldn't vote for a landfill if it
was in the middle of the Osceola Forest. Commissioner Combs, if
there was a need for the landfill last week, there still is a need. Look
for the right location so the county can have a source of revenue that it
needs.
SCommissioner Combs failed her constituents miserably, and in 2008
some will do their part to get her to march once again to a different
beat right down the road. She would have you believe she wasn't
aware of Mr. Darabi's intentions, and that she knew very little about
the proposal. If that is the case, one must then ask the question why
was Commissioner Combs so "excited" about the proposal if she knew
so little about it?

Everyone

helped to

stop landfill

Dear Editor:
Our thanks to the citizens who
participated in the efforts to stop
the C&D landfill project.
There is no doubt had it not been
for the community's involvement,
from hundreds of phone calls to be-
ing present at a community meet-
ing, south Sanderson would cer-
tainly have become north Florida's '
construction .dump site.
Special thanks to Pastor De-
wayne Bridges and members of
the Sanderson United Revival
Center for use of their facility to'
hold the community gathering.
Thanks also to Commissioner
Mark Hartley of District Three,
who took the time'to come out to
District One and hear our concerns
and see how this project would
have had an everyday (negative)
impact on the citizens who live in

Griffis'


comment

ludicrous
Dear Editor:
School Board Member Dean
Griffis, while discussing impact
fees at a recent School Board meet-
ing, was quoted in the June 2,
2005 edition of The Baker County
Press saying, "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. If people
can afford that size of home, they
can afford to pay more."
While his premise smacks of a
typical "Robin Hood" attitude, that
is not the real rub. As a public offi-
cial speaking at a board meeting, it
would be wise to check one's facts
before opening one's-mouth.
Few homes in Copper Creek are
in the 3000-4000 square-foot
range unless you count unheated
spaces, and even that is a stretch.
The majority of homes in the sub-
division are considerably less than
3000 square feet, closer to an aver-
age just over 2000 square feet of
heated living space.
To characterize Copper Creek
as a luxury high end subdivision is
simply ludicrous. The homes and
grounds are generally well land-
scaped, neat and clean. Pride of
ownership is obvious. Estate size
homes and lots are not.
I'm proud to live in Baker
County, the City of Macclenny and
the Copper Creek subdivision. If
this is the only way our elected of-
ficials can make a point, I hope the
citizens who elect our commis-
sioners and board members re-
member these articulate forward
thinking leaders when we next go
to the polls.

Stolen motorcyces found nearby


Police recovered two motorcy-
cles stolen from Macclenny Cycle
and Marine on sputh Lowder
Street early on June 5.
A nearby resident heard the
alarm and stopped police to report
it. Deputy Adam Faircloth re-
sponded to the store at 1:01 am
and found an employee there who
had also heard the alarm.
The owner, Clarence Williams,
arrived a short time later.
They went inside to find a bath-


room window broken out, the
same one used in a recent burglary.
Two Blata motorcycles were
missing; each was valued at
$1700. Mr. Williams found them

A suspect was interviewed but
.released, and the investigation is
ongoing.

the store's Starke location several
weeks ago.
In the meantime, that store had
been burglarized twice and the
Middleburg store once.
Police were unable to immedi-
ately locate the suspect, who does
not live in this area.
SJosephine Hartsfield of Mac-
clenny reported June 3 that a mag-
azine company had twice with-
drawn $99.99 from her bank ac-
count that day. She said the com-
pany also took $199.99 from her
account in March.
She could not provide police
with the name of the company.

Harris of Glen St. Mary told police
June 4 someone had stolen their
Bob Cat mower from an empty lot

Complaint,

arrest follows

couple's fight

A Macclenny man was arrested
and police filed a complaint
against his wife for battery/domes-
tic violence June 4 after a scuffle
at their home on Bluewater Court.
The woman, 17, told police she
was sleeping when her husband,
James Davis, 23, came into the
room at 11:21 am and began
yelling at her and pushing her.
She went to another room to get
away from him, but he followed
her, grabbed her by the neck and
held her down on the bed by the
throat.
Deputy Greg Burnsed noted a
scratch on her cheek and redness
on her neck.
Three witnesses confirmed her
version of events, although one
said she saw the woman pushing
back.
The officer spoke with Mr.
Davis, who said they'd argued and
pushed each other.
He had scratches on his neck
and a cut lip from his wife hitting
him in the face with a soft drink can.
Mr. Davis was arrested because
he was the primary aggressor.

Threatens children, couple


Police filed a sworn complaint
against a Glen St. Mary couple
who allegedly threatened to shoot
to death their children and the cou-
ple awarded custody of them.
"I will blow off your wife's
head, then yours and then I will
kill the kids because if I cannot
have them, no one will," Jesse
Norman reportedly said during a
May 31 phone conversation with
Bubba and Hope Jordan, to whom
the court awarded custody of Nor-
man's two children.
The Jordans also said Mr. Nor-
man's wife, Ashley Norman, made
harassing phone calls to their
home.
A circuit court judge removed
the two children from the Nor-
man's home and ordered Jesse, 22,
and Ashley, 19, not to contact the
Jordans or the children.
It was a few hours before the
custody hearing that Mr. Norman
called the Jordans, the couple told

SIs. Watkins told Deputy Randy

punched a customer several times
before bystanders broke it up.
The customer left before the of-
ficer arrived.
When the deputy walked in the
restaurant he heard Mr. William-
son cursing employees and cus-
tomers.
He had a very strong odor of al-
cohol on him and difficulty main-
taining his balance.

At the time, Deputy Brad
Dougherty spoke with the Nor-
mans and warned them about call-
ing, yet the calls continued.

Joey Williams, filed a complaint
against the Normans alleging ha-
rassing phone calls and resisting

up loud all night," he said.
He first denied the incident, but
admitted to it after being told there
was a witness.
"I ain't gonna lie, I did chase
them down and bump the rear of
his car."
Eddie Collingwood also tried to
deny participating in the incident,
saying his truck had been broken
down for weeks.
However, the deputies found
fresh damage to the vehicle and
noted that the engine was still hot.
All three Collingwoods were
arrested, but Eddie was later re-
leased because he is a juvenile.


Speeding on

interstate, had

pot containers
A Kentucky man stopped for
speeding on Interstate 10 June 4
was arrested for misdemeanor pos-
session of marijuana after police
found several small containers
containing pot.
Eddie Cato, 30, of Radcliff was
clocked driving 97 miles per hour
in a 70 mph zone eastbound on I-
10 near US 90.
Deputy Benjamin Anderson
stopped him at 12:47 am and ran a
computer check of his criminal
record, which turned up several
drug convictions.
The officer asked to search the
car and found a small film contain-
er of marijuana in the back seat.
There were also rolling papers, a
metal cylinder used to separate the
seed from the weed and a metal
pipe in the shape of a cigarette.
In the trunk, the deputy found
two small bags of marijuana, a
glass pipe and a Mason jar more
than half full of pot.
There was no scale available to
weigh the marijuana, but Mr. Cato
was charged with misdemeanor
possession, which means less than
20 grams.
He also was charged with pos-
session of drug paraphernalia, and
cited for speeding.

'The Longest Yard' remake is passable


BY BOB GERARD
Press Entertainment
Fans of the original The Long-
est Yard, which starred Burt Rey-
nolds as a jailed pro football play-
er who has to put together a team
of cons to play the guards in a na-
tionally televised game, will prob-
ably enjoy the remake starring
Adam Sandler.
Sandler is no Reynolds, who
has a small role as the coach in the
remake, but he does a credible job
here, and it is full of enough laughs
to keep his legion of fans happy.
Sandler plays former NFL MVP
quarterback Paul Crewe, who was
discredited and thrown out of the
NFL for shaving points in a game.
After a drunk driving incident, he
is thrown into jail in Texas.
The prison has made a name for
itself by fielding a semi-pro team
of guards who are former champs
of the Texas Prison League. The
warden, played ably by James
Cromwell in the role originated by
Eddie Albert, desperately wants to
get back to the top and wants
Crewe to help him by fielding a
team of cons for a warm-up game
before his season begins.
As in the original, Crewe puts
together a team of misfits, who
know very little about playing
football, but are motivated by a
desire to get back at the guards.
After some funny miscues, Crewe
begins to whip them into shape for
the game, as you knew he would.
The movie is grounded with
seasoned pros like Reynolds, San-
dler, Cromwell and Chris Rock.
The team is made up of ex-football
players such as Michael Irvin, Bri-
an Bosworth and Tony Serguso,
rapper Nelly and wrestlers Kevin
Nash, Steve Austin and Bill Gold-
berg.
Surprisingly, the amateurs are
very good. Irvin and S,'rLusoL were
-r--game commentators after they
left .. .,-. and are obviously us-
ed to the camera. B',,:'.:. .-, had a
brief movie and television career
aner his fI:..,i:,l career tanked.
The pro-wrestlers are also very
tz,;,,i W i.,li linu ii ,.tl..rtiinrl cnt


and they easily make the switch to
the big screen from the little one.
Nash particularly is hilarious as a
steroid user whose drugs are
switched with estrogen and starts
to take on female characteristics.
But the standout is rapper Nelly,
who could, like Ice-T before him,
have a long career in films after
his rapping days are through. As
running back Earl Megget, he is a
natural. He looks completely at
home in front of the camera and
exudes a boyish charm that makes
him very likeable on screen.
Chris Rock is his usual wise-
cracking self. With Rock, it's just a
matter of changing costume, since
the character is always the same.
But he is there as comic relief and
does a steady job.
With Sandier in the cast, you
wouldn't think you'd need comic
relief, but Sandler is taking roles
that are serio-comic, and this one
is no exception. In Paul Crewe he
plays a much darker character than
the bumbler he usually, portrays,
and it is clear he is struggling a lit-
tle. In a lot of scenes he comes
across as slightly surly. It's only in
the scenes where he.gets to use his
sarcastic humor that he looks com-
pletely comfortable.

side by side, you'll see what I
mean. Reynolds could play serious
and comic without ever loosing
that tongue in cheek, twinkle in
the eye that let you know he was
setting you up for something. With
Sandler, it's a little more forced.
That's not to say he can't handle
the part he's just not up to Rey-
nolds' chops. For FSU fans, listen
closely for Reynold's Seminole
reference. He played for the Semi-
noles, so there was no way FSU
was going to miss being mention-


ec in a football movie.
The football segments are good,
but predictable. You'd have to not
be paying much attention to miss
knowing Reynolds is getting on
the field at some point. Nelly
shines in the football sequences
and there are some monster hits.
This is a good summer comedy.
It's pretty raunchy, so it's not for
the whole family, however.
The Longest Yard is rated PG-
13 for language, violence and sex-
ual and drug references; I give it
21/2 out of 3 stars.

Impact fees back to a workshop...


St (from page one)
S' "A $7000-9000 impact fee
-. .. .. won't really bother them. But here
Sv .. you have people scrounging for

Mr. Knabb noted he has 25 sign-

ny's northeast corner. "Some of
them are maxed out on what they
Scan borrow and might have to back

--0 u the fees might put him out of busi-

the same for homes of any size.
St. "A family of four will have the
same impact regardless of the

""I'm kind of for impact fees be-

Ston said Donald Sharp, one of three

Departments seek space expansion


In its final two interviews with
department heads, the Baker
County Buildings and Facilities
Committee learned June 1 that
both the county road yard and rec-
reation shop need more room.
Although the committee had
earlier discussed whether a site
further east might be more central,
Road Superintendent Robert Fletch-
.er said the Sanderson location re-
mains ideal.
"I'd prefer to stay there, if we
can get more land. If we can't,
there's no sense building anything
more new there because we're go-
ing to outgrow it."
The main need is parking for 31
current employees expected to
increase as the county grows, plus
space to store equipment and ma-
terials. Mr. Fletcher said the road
yard is "just getting by"on storage
of limerock, dirt and bridge tim-
bers.
"My next concern is the shop,
which was built in the 1940s. It's
an open tin barn, and the concrete
floor has holes. We have two
smaller shops built about three
years ago, a service bay and sign
shop," Mr Fletcher explained, add-
ing he was "really surprised" the
barn's tin roof stayed on during
last fall's hurricane season.


Shoplifter

is tackled
A Macclenny man was tackled
by a store manager and several by-
standers, then arrested for shoplift-
ing June 3 after trying to steal pills
to help him pass a drug test.
After his arrest, Joseph August,
19, explained to police:
"I just got out of jail and I'm on
probation and I have to see my
probation officer today and I was
afraid I would test positive for
marijuana so I went to Winn Dixie
and stole a bottle of pills to help
me pass the drug test.".
The bottle of 100 Niacin, which
apparently affects the metabolism,.
costs $2.49.
Mr. August triggered an alarm
when he tried to leave the store,
then refused to stop when store
manager Tom Debruhl called to
him.
He took off running across the
parking lot and down Barber
Road, where he was nabbed.

Homes are situated at the north
and south ends of the three-acre
tract, privately owned acreage on
the other two sides. Mr. Fletcher
estimates about 1.5 more acres
would suffice.
In the department's other re-
sponsibility, Mr. Fletcher said the
county's current eight garbage col-
lection sites are adequate. "We'd
hoped to go to curbside collection
and that is practical but it costs
and no-one wants to pay more
money," he explained.
Two private companies were
charging about $11 per month for
twice weekly pickup when the
county discussed a franchise pro-
posal in February 2004.
Work space is also a problem
'for Recreatioi Director Donald
Combs.
"The maintenance shop is in-
adequate for the amount of equip-
ment we're getting,' he said of the
site in the Knabb Ballfield Com-
plex on North Boulevard. There is
room for two more work bays, he
estimated.
The county is acquiring more
parks and recreation sites, includ-
ing the recent addition of the 1600
acre St. Mary's Shoals Park and
Cuyler Park, both in the north
county, plus a 20 acre parcel on
west US 90. None of the three has
been developed yet.
Mr. Combs is also responsible
for the Fairgrounds, Minger Field,
Little River Park off US 90, Jones-
ville Park north of Sanderson, Mar-
garetta, Taylor and Olustee parks.
The department's duties will ex-
pand as the county plans to require
subdivision developers to set aside
land for and perhaps build more
parks.
"There are no bathrooms except
Portolets at $60-70 a month for
regular, $140 for handicap, and


those rentals eat up my budget,"
Mr. Combs said. He estimated
more than half his $13,000 annual
allocation for rentals and leases
goes for Portolets.
However, county secretary and
committee member Ann Yarbor-
ough said permanent facilities are
a problem also. "Someone has to
maintain them, and there's always
vandalism," she noted.
SCommittee Chairman Jim Mc-
Gauley noted another drawback:
installation' and maintenance of
wells and septic tanks. The Baker
County Commission is consider-
ing building water and sewer treat-
ment plants at the St. Mary's
Shoals park, facilities that could be
expanded to handle much of the
subdivision growth anticipated in
the north county area. However,
one drawback may be how to han-
dle the treated effluent from the
sewer treatment.
While some environmentalists
object to the likelihood it would be
discharged into the river, engineer
Frank Darabi noted it will be
"clearer" water than the tannin-
colored natural flow. However, the


discharge can not be more than
one-fourth of the low-flow rate un-
der drought conditions, Mr. Darabi
told the commission in a May 10
workshop.
Chairman McGauley' distribu-
ted draft copies of a report he will
present to the commission June 20.
It includes recommendations for;
County courthouse a mainte-
nance agreement for the heating
and cooling system. Parking lot
seepage and basement flooding
seem to be controlled.
County jail expansion to
handle more boarded prisoners,
possibly via a not-for-profit corpo-
ration for a bond issue that will not
encumber the county. The commit-
tee feels strongly the jail should be
kept near the courthouse.
Annex housing the property
appraiser, tax collector and elec-
tions supervisor needs roof re-
pairs and parking lot resurfaced.
Fire/rescue services relocate
the Sanderson and South Macclen-
ny stations, add parking to the
Emergency Operations Center, add
a station north of Glen St. Mary.

And Phil Langsberg said, "I'd
raise them even higher if I could. I
chose a rural area. Others can
choose not to move here and avoid
the fees."
John Pearce suggested the coun-
ty consider imposing the fee when
a mortgage is closed rather than on
the permit fee at the start. "Some
people want to work on the house


awhile, then get the financing," he
reasoned.
In contrast to usual public hear-
ings, the commission did not vote
on the proposed impact fees that
evening. And with only one more
regularly scheduled meeting this
month, it does not appear the fees
will be in place by July 1 as origi-
nally planned.

Senior Center activities for June
are centered around Fathers' Day.
The theme on June 10 is "#1 Dad
Shirt and Cap Day" and on June 17
"Celebrating Dads."
The cook-off scheduled for June
24 has been cancelled and replaced
with a covered dish lunch to cele-
brate June birthdays.
Seniors are encouraged to pre-
pare now for the 2005 hurricane
season by making or updating
evacuation plans and by setting up
disaster "survival tote kits." Help
can be found in the current copy of
the Elder Update publication, avail-
able free at the Senior Center. This
newsletter/magazine includes evac-
uation guidance for those with
medical special needs as well as the
phone number for the Baker Coun-
ty Special Needs Registry (259-
6111). Free subscriptions to this bi-
monthly Department of Elder Af-
fairs newsletter may be obtained by
calling the Council on Aging at
259-2223. In addition to the annual
Disaster Preparedness Guide for
Elders, every issue of the Elder
Update contains up-to-date infor-
mation, news and resources of in-
terest to elders and their families
and to caregivers of any age.
The Council on Aging offers
respite service for non-paid care-
givers taking care of elders or for
elders caring for a disabled child,
spouse, sibling or parent. Aides
from the Council on Aging and from
subcontracted agencies stay with
the career, usually in blocks of four
hours or more, to allow the care-
giver time to run errands, take care
of personal business,,or just relax.
Stetson University professor Nick
Cox spoke at the Senior Center last
week concerning consumer protec-
tion including some common iden-
tity theft scams, and advised seniors
not to discard any papers contain-
ing their personal identity informa-
tion without first shredding the
identifying information.
The Council still needs volunteers
to deliver meals one day a week to
homebound seniors.
SENIORS' MENU
for the week of June 13-17
SMONDAY: Smoked sausage, rice, to-
matoes, cornbread, pudding and milk.
TUESDAY: Hot dogs, coleslaw, potato
salad, apple and milk.
WEDNESDAY: Grilled chicken patty
with gravy, mashed potatoes, broccoli,
pineapple tidbits and milk.
THURSDAY: Grilled cheese sandwich,

Reed resigns from coaching at


BCHS; 'just wants to be a dad'


BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
Sherman Reed won't be flash-
ing signs or reading greens next
season for Baker County High
School after resigning as coach of
the baseball and golf teams.
Instead, he will take a job
teaching, but not coaching, at For-
rest High
S School on Jack-
sonville's West-
side.
"My son will
be a freshman
Sf-next year. I'm
( not coaching,
I'm just going
to be a dad."
Sherman Reed After getting
married and
moving to Green Cove Springs in
November, Reed said he became
worn down by the commute and
hit hard by rising gas prices.
"You add in the late night ball
games, the away games, and I
wasn't getting home until past
midnight some times," he said in
an interview June 6.
Reed, 45, spent 13 years teach-
ing in Baker County, coaching off
and on throughout. His resignation
is effective July 1.
"Coaching was definitely worth
the time, I loved it. I hate to leave,"
he said, adding that his best mem-
ory is coaching last year's golf
team to a 13-1 record and qualify-
ing two kids for regionals.
He said he'll miss Baker Coun-
ty.
"This is a great school, athletes
and a great community. The par-
ents were always so supportive.
I'm going to miss it, definitely."
Athletic Director Melody Cog-
gin said she hasn't yet come up
with a replacement.


"There's no blanket policy as to
hiring coaches. It depends on the
applicants, their performance in
the classroom, experience, et cete-
ra. We've still got a couple of
weeks, it's no big hurry."
SReed told the Press he would
like to see assistant coach Jami
Rodgers replace him.
"Coach Reed hasn't made a for-
mal recommendation as to a re-
placement," Coggin said. "As for a
golf replacement, we're hoping
whoever takes over baseball will
take over golf."
A few of Reed's players who
vill be returning.next season talk-
ed with the Press and also express-
ed a preference for Rodgers.
A baseball star at all levels in
Baker County, Rodgers went on to
play for Jacksonville University.
He has been working for the
school district about a year as a
long-term substitute teacher, and is
currently working toward his teach-
ing certificate.
."I respect Sherman Reed and
everything he stands for," Rodgers
said. "I respect him as a coach and


in the classroom."
When asked about taking over
for Reed, Rodgers, 26, was more
guarded than the players or. his
predecessor.
"The chances of me being head
coach are low. I see myself as head
coach one day, but right now might
not be the right time. I haven't
even put in an application."
As for the rest of the summer
baseball schedule, the season ends
in mid-July, so a replacement or
assistant coach will handle the re-
maining schedule after Reed's de-
parture.

Tourney cancelled
The Council on Aging Charity
Golf Tournament has been cancel-
led. It will be rescheduled at a later
date. Details will be announced
then. For more information, call

Here's a funny thingI've notic-
ed no matter what the sport, we
Americans have a completely
American perspective. I don't nec-
essarily think it's the same in the
rest of the world.
With the exception of baseball,
where the average fan can proba-
bly name eight or ten foreign-born
players, we're sadly lacking in
world view of sports.
I was watching the French Open
last weekend and there was a nota-
ble lack of Americans playing. An-
dre Agassi, Andy Roddick, Lind-
sey Davenport and the rest all
went out in the early rounds. The
French Open isa clay court event
and not really conducive to the
kind of game Americans play.
Nonetheless, there were still
some big names in the tournament.
The world's number one player
made it to the semis before being
booted b\ a relatively unknown
teenager.
But ask any American about the
number one men's tennis player in
the world. and if he or she can
e\en name a single tennis player, it
would probably be Agassi or Rod-
dick, not Sw\itzerland's Roger Fed-
erer.
On the %women's side of the net.
if \ou ask an American to name a
foreign female player, the first
name to pop up is Anna Kouriko-
va. But she doesn't really count
because she w\as more a fashion
model than a tennis player, having
never won a single significant
tournament. Besides. she's retired.
lMrtina Navratilova? Retired.
Steffi Graf? Retired. How about
Maria Sharapova? Well, she does-
n't count either. She was born in
Russia, but has lived in Florida
most of her life and speaks better
English than I do.
Okay, golf.
\We can probably name a few
foreign golfers if we watch the
game. Like baseball, golf is the onl\
real mass market sport \\here for-
eigners get name recognition. Er-
nie Els. SerLio Garcia. Greg Nor-
nn., Colin Montgomer, V'ija\
Singh. those are pretty recogniz-
abic names.
Cani-d.'+in Ste-e--.-Nash Is t[ie


*MVP of the NBA and there are a
handful of foreign players NBA
fans could name, like Yao Ming,
but personally, I can't name a sin-
gle foreign player who isn't in the
NBA.
Even though I love the sport, I
suppose soccer doesn't count since
it's a minor sport here in the US.
Most people can't name any for-
eign players besides maybe Pele,
who's been retired for 20 years,
and possibly David Beckham, the
Brit who plays for Real Madrid.
But the only reason we know him
.is because of the movie Bend It
Like Beckham, his marriage to
Posh Spice or the fact that he's a
cover boy model for a half a dozen
products.
However, soccer doesn't really


.cye Sound


count because your average sports
fan couldn't name an American
player with the exception, maybe,
possibly, of Landon Donovan.
Demarcus Beasley, Kasey Kel-
ler, Brad Friedel and Brian Mc-
Bride, the stars of the US national
soccer team, are less well-known


and less well-paid than the third-
string quarterback of the New York
Giants.
I suppose that's only natural,
but we are missing a lot of good
athletes and a lot of good perfor-
mances that way.
