Insurer to

cover loss

of cash at


Nearly $14,000
from animal control
The county's insurer is expected
to cover nearly all the money that
turned up missing from the animal
control department, officials said
August 2.
Nearly $14,000 in cash was ap-
parently stolen between April 1999
and April 2005.
At the end of June, State Attor-
ney William Cervone said an inves-
tigation by his office failed to find
sufficient evidence to charge any-
one in the theft.
He did note, however, the re-
ceiptirig and deposit system at ani-
mal control did not have "sufficient
checks and balances in order to
eliminate the possibility of theft by
any number of individuals...."
The primary suspect had been
Suzanne Rhoden, who resigned as
county secretary soon after the theft
was discovered.
But even without an arrest or
conviction, Preferred Governmen-
tal Insurance Trust will indemnif\
the counts under its crime/employ-
ee dishonesty coverage, said Cathy
Williams, who handles insurance
matters for the county.
"We're not sure of the amount,"
she said. "We have to get them the
exact figures and a fc\\ other de-
tails... but it will be pretty close to
all of it."
County manager Jason Griffis.
announced the news at the commis-
sioners' meeting August 2 in con-
nection with a request by the head
of animal control for additional
funds.
Georgia Monfort said an in-
crease in the number of animals eu-
thanized, as well as higher cleaning
costs for the county's new, larger
facility, have pushed up costs.
She also said animal control has-
been "overwhelmed" with stray an-
imals, requiring more frequent trips
and higher fuel costs.
Although animal control re-.
ceives revenue from adoptions -
which have nearly tripled, she said
the money goes to the county's
general fund.
Mr. Griffis said Ms. Monfort in-
dicated the shortfall would be about
$2000. She did not attend the meet-'
ing.
Commissioners agreed to a han-
dle it with a budget amendment at
the end of the fiscal year.


Incumbents

get a pass

With no opponents filing to run
against them, six elected officials in
Macclenny and Glen St. Mary will
go back into office this fall.
The weeklong qualifying period
July 25-29 drew only the incum-
bents, all of whom filed the first
day.
Only Phillip Rhoden on the
Macclenny Commission is a rela-
tive newcomer. He was selected on
an interim basis in June by the oth-
er board members to fill the vacan-
cy left when B.J. Cannon resigned.
Mr. Rhoden will be in office only
two years to finish the remainder of
Mr. Cannon's term.
Taking on new four year terms
are Richard Johnson and Tommy
Johns.
All three Glen incumbents,
Charles "Jack" Reneau, Lewis
"Woody" Crews and Perry Hays,
have new four year terms.

Cornerstone blight?

BY JIM MNcGAULEY
Press Publisher
Wal-Mart calls them "dark stores."
In the commercial real estate business, they're often known as
"empty boxes" and the more cynical refer to them as "tumbleweed
square" and "broken glass centers." -
They are large, \acant buildings that once housed Wal-Marts or
K-Marts, many of them still with active leases but as forgotten as
yesterday's junk e-mails.
TheN 're in towns small and large Wal-Mart corporate in.Ar-,
kansas said this week 130 "dark stores" are currently on the books,
down from 172 last year. Other websites posted b) critics of the gi-
ant retailer insist there are many more than that, and they've be-
come a huge blight on the American landscape.
Will Macclenny be one of that number this time next year?
And what of the remaining stores in Cornerstone Square on
South 6th, stores that nMo enjoy the substantial magnetic pull of
sharing the same parking lot with Baker Counts 's busiest retailer?
One of the neighboring tenants is Food Lion, which can look
forward for competing next year with the Supercenter's grocery de-
partment, which has been giving the big chains fits all over the
Southeast.
If everything goes on schedule, and it usually does when Wal-
Mart is rushing to open a new store, the Supercenter at the intersec-
tion of SR 228 and Interstate 10 in southeast Macclenny \ill be up
and running by August, 2006. It will transform the largely undevel-
oped interchange forever.
As the crow flies, the new store isn't that far away from the pres-
ent 43,500 square foot Wal-Mart built in 198S. From a commercial

Group


to study


options


on jails

Expansion versus
new larger facility

Appearing more committed to
building a new county jail than in
earlier discussions, the Baker
County Commission agreed Au-
gust 2 to authorize the Building and
Facilities Committee to study the
'relative costs of expanding the cur-
rent site versus buying land and
building at a new location.
Committee Chairman Jim Mc-
Gauley reiterated his group's earli-
er recommendation to keep the jail
close to the courthouse.
"But that doesn't mean we're
unwilling to be your jail study
committee," he added.
Sheriff Joey Dobson, who has
touted sites along US 90 East, ac-
knowledged there are "pluses and
negatives" to both proposals.
"Transportation is the most nega-
tive. and Wal-Mart doesn't %want us
nearby. But that's the only place
Rayonier wants to sell us," he ex-
plained.
But he is not enthusiastic about
adding to the current structure, nor
to building piecemeal as land par-
cels could be acquired east of the
jail.
"But we spent lots of money to
facilitate the jail when we expand-
ed the courthouse. If a free-stand-
ing jail wipes that out...if not, we
need to expand right there, because
we're going to be paying on the
courthouse for 15 years," countered
..Commissioner Fred Raulerson.
He cited a special elevator, spe-
cial staircase and the jail sallyport.
However, those amenities would be
needed to transfer inmates whether
they come from the jail or arrive in
a van.
Because a preliminary study of
both location possibilities was done
by architect Bill Rutherford and
Associates of Tallahassee, the com-
mittee expects to be ready with a
report September 6.
More than a year ago, Mr. Ruth-
erford estimated about $9 million
to build a 250 bed jail, allowing
added revenue from boarding fed-

eral inmates that would cover the
annual bond payment as well as
continue the $1 million annual
profit on which the county has
..come to rely.
SThe committee itself has alrea-
. dy held several meetings on the.
jail, including a session on Glades
County's bond issue fronted b3 a
.specially created not-for-profit
corporation. The company was de-
signed to divert repayment liability
from the county, but the county:
would have a 'moral obligation"
regardless.
On a practical note, defaulting
on the debt would mean the jail
could be sold to a private company
-.which could then charge, the
county large fees to board local
prisoners.
Meanwhile, it is local prisoners
who are making the current jail
unprofitable. This fiscal year, reve-
nue may be half the $1.01 million
budgeted. Sheriff Joey Dobson
said it takes an average 60 federal
boarded prisoners per day to make
that income. In past years, the
boarder count often ranged to 85.
On August 2, a typical day in
recent months, 115 of the 132 beds
were taken by local inmates, leav-
ing only 17 for boarded prisoners.
As he has in the past, Sheriff
Dobson stressed Baker County is
in a good geographic location to
continue the lucrative arrange-
ment, even though the'US Mar-
shal's office won't make a firm
commitment.
"I'd be more scared of competi-
tion from surrounding counties
building their own new jails, Du-
val especially, than over a federal
guarantee," Mr. McGauley said.
"It would have a 30 day clause,
so it wouldn't be a real guarantee
anyway," Commissioner Gordon
Crews pointed out.


Dark Store at Cornerstone?


(from pageone)
"Normally the company evalu-
ates the existing store and Wal-'
Mart Realty (a separate division)
lists it on its website," explained
Mr. Fogleman.
"We also seek input from a
community, including public offi-
cials. Before we move out, we try
to find a new tenant."
Internet sites are rife with news-
paper articles telling a variety of.
-versions on-the theme: stores that

Among the "strong retailers" he
made reference to are Winn-Dixie
in neighboring Baker Square, the
county's second largest retailer, the
aforementioned Food 'Lion, Fried-
man's Jewelers, Radio Shack
across 121, and several fast food'
.chains.
Macclenny, of course, was
heavily involved in luring the Su-

mediate area.

ent store. ,.
Watson Goodwin, a city build-
ing official, said the company has
as of this week not submitted any

Warning: don't


read this if you are


'earworm'prone


MY SIDE OF




This column comes with a warn-
ing label. The Surgeon General
warns that if you are the least-bit
impressionable or susceptible to
suggestion, you should avoid read-
ing this column.
In fact, close your eyes, run into
a dark room and hide. Do not read
any further or you will regret it!l
Okay. You've been warned. If
you go on to the next paragraph
you're taking your sanity into your
own hands.
"Roxxxxxxanninnnneeee, you
don't have to put on the red light.
Roxxxannnnnneeee!"
"Would you stop singing that
stupid song," my wife moans.
R"oxxxx.v..annniinneeee," I
' w ail....
"Stop," my wife says, taking a
harder tone. "If you don't stop
singing that song you'll be sorry."
"'Roxrxxxrannnnnneeee!" I am
like a man possessed. The Police
song from the mid-eighties is stuck
in my head and will not be dis-
Slodged. It's like a computer virus
that has infected my brain.
"All right," says Kelley. "I warn-
ed you. You asked for it." She takes
a deep breath and begins to sing.
"Gypsies, tramps and thieves, we
hear it from....
"No! Not that! Anything but that
song." I fight back.
"OneMaca, two Maca, three
Macarena," ...
"Not the Macarena. That's fight-
ing dirty." :
I start to do the dance as I con-
tinue to sing.
Kelley gets a mean look on her
face and fires another salvo.
'"Muskrat Stuzy Muskrat Sam..."
"Feelings! Oh, oh, Feelings."
"Ouch!" she says, then croons.
"You light up my life. You give me
hope. To carry on. "
I take a step back. Debbie
Boone. That's a low, low blow. All
right. If that's the way you want to
play it. I break out the nuclear op-
tion. "Mmmmmmnm Bop, Bop, Bop,
Mmmmmmm Bop, I retaliate.
"Not Hanson. Anything but Han-
son. Truce. Truce.
I knew it. Hanson those little
kids who were a nineties musical
phenomenon with their irritatingly
good looks and just plain irritating
songs: If irritating songs were a
weapon of terrorism, Hanson
would be'a WMD weapon of
mass destruction.
Let' me backtrack and tell you
what got me singing Roxxxxxx-
annnnnneeee in a voice like finger-
nails on a blackboard. It's not all
my own fault. Blame it on the news
media.
Last week, the Florida Times-
Union did a terrific story on songs
that they call Earworms. They are
songs that work their way into your
head and stay there no matter what
you do to try to get rid of them.
Earworms are songs that you may
not even like. In fact, like my reac-


tion to Gypsies, Tramps and
Thieves, and my wife's reaction to
The Macarena, they may be songs
you out-and-out hate but can't get
out of your head.
I love the earworm analogy, but
I also think of these songs as being
like a computer virus. You might
think you've gotten rid of them by
playing The Eagles ballad Desper-
ado, but you really haven't. They
are still there. Waiting. Lurking.
All somebody has to do is men-
tion the song for them to resurface.
Then just try to get rid of them.'Just
let somebody mention Sugar, Sugar
by the Archies and' if you've ever.
heard this earworm, this partic-
ularly virulent computer virus of
the brain, it will reawaken ard
wrap itself back around your head
and dare you to try and get rid of it.
"Sugah, bum bum bum bum bum
bum. A.4 honey, honey: Bum bum
bum bum bum bum. You are my
candy, girl.... "
See what I mean. I had absolute-
ly no intention of singing that song.
Now. I can't get rid of it. It's gonna
bug me for the rest of the day. The
only %way to get rid of an earworm
or a brain virus is with another ear-
worm or brain virus. That's an un-
fortunate truism.
Here are a few more of the
songs the TU included in their list:
My Sharona
The Chicken Dance
Achy Breakv Heart
99 L ufballoons
867-5309
Come on Eileen
Here are some that didn't make
their list, but are.definitely on
mine:

Wal-Mart: our experience is different


It struck me this week as a bit
peculiar. Go onto the Internet and
Google (that's a brand new verb!)
Wal-Mart and see what you get.
Because it is the biggest company
in the word, first on the Fortune 500


and every other business gauge
around, Wal-Mart draws a lot of fire.
The company is likened to a reli-
gious cult, called a corporate greed
machine, a killer of small retail
businesses and the like. When you


get big and dominant, you get ene-
mies. It's nothing new in corporate
America; in fact, were I affiliated
with an oil company or one of the
Big Three (Big Two now) car mak-
ers, I'd be happy Wal-Mart has


Flooded Steel Bridge Road near river


needs improvements, a no wake zone
Dear Editor:
I am a resident off Steel Bridge Road. just beyond the Boy Scout Camp. Myself and other residents are
unimpressed by the county road department.
We were unable to drive home from July 1 through July 21. Our road holds water for ,weeks at a time, mak-
ing it impassible. We would like to request an investigation into alternative ways to navigate the flooding wa-
ters (from the nearby St. Marys River).
We could understand if the water was coming from the rising river, but the river is still in it banks and %we
still cannot drive home. Our families have been using boats to get in and out. This gets a little annoying after
about two weeks. We do not understand why the county has not addressed this issue before. We are taxpayers
and should be able to use the road for which we pay taxes.
School i, getting reads to sitrt, and I can't tell you ho\. many times our children '.ere unable to catch the
bus from' home last vear,due to the condition four road. We either had:to take them to the Scout Camp or
down to the paved road. It is not convenient for the children or parents. .rI.I. '...
Why can't the county build this road up to where the water does not stand on it for so long? The standing
water is very nasty, a green haze growing on top of it. And it's a breeding ground for mosquitoes. I do not allow
my child to go near the water from the road, and it is all the way up to our back door. Instead of seeing a yard or
driveway, we see nasty green-hazed water.
Another issue residents believe needs to be addressed in the neighborhood is the speed of boats and jet skies
on the river in front of our homes. Many of us have not recovered from the damaging floodwaters from the last
hurricane season. Our banks washed away, many trees ha\e fallen from them. There is even a small cottage that
has only a few concrete piers left holding it up.
Yet the boats and jet skies still speed right by our homes with no thought or consideration of the damage.
There should be a no-wake zone enforced around residential areas.
Why doesn't the count, take care of its river residents? Didn't FEMA (Federal Emergency Management)
give the county money to fix Steel Bridge Road? Where did it go?
How about bring some hardpan dirt of limerock to build our road back up to where it once was? FEMA in-
tended to help the residents of Steel Bridge Road and most of them li e past the boat ramp.
What would happen if there was an accident or medical emergency out here? How would the person or per-
sons needing help be transported and how long would it take rescue to arrive?
Please don't wait for something like this to happen before action is taken. Make changes now: improve our
road, fix the boat ramp wall that was set afire five months ago and is still hazardous, and please enforce a no-
wake zone along residential areas of the St. Marys River.

'Mecca' comment reckless


Dear Editor:
I hear that liberal or Democrat
politicians shouldn't make state-
ments that empower our enemies in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
I wonder if that applies to right-
wing Republican politicians. Con-
gressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colo-
rado) stated recently that the target-
ing of Muslim holy sites, including
Mecca, were options in response to


a terrorist nuclear threat towards
the US.
Now, obviously we as a nation
cannot allow terrorism on our
shores. Any group that wishes to
do so has to be hunted down and
their leaders and members impris-
oned. But, the talk of targeting holy
sites will not deter terrorism; it will
do the opposite.


Much of the Islamic world be-
lieves the US is at war with Islam,
not only radical/violent parts of Is-
lam, but Islam as a whole. To talk
of targeting their holy sites, and es-
pecially Mecca (which is even off-
limits to non-Muslims) will defi-
nitely increase and harden this
image in their minds. It will in-
crease the number of young men
willing to "die for Allah against the
Great Satan."
During the IRA bombings in
London, did the British state that
they might target the Vatican? No,
what it would have done was fur-
ther hatred and even more terror-
ism against England and religion,
while deeply rooted in Ireland and
Northern Ireland, doesn't hold a
candle to religious sentiment in the
Islamic world.
Congressman Tancredo stated he
doesn't want to be politically cor-
rect. I don't ask him to be "PC," but
only to think his ideas through.
Radical inflammatory rhetoric
(which is already being posted on
Islamic websites) doesn't help the
problem, it contributes to the prob-
lem.
Ironically, I haven't seen much
criticism of the congressman by the
right wing for definitely empower-
ing our enemies.
JAMES MULLIN
Macclenny


evolved into everyone's favorite
whipping boy.
The corporate Goliath has its
fans, to be sure, but they consist
mostly of people who vote with
their feet and walk into Wal-Marts
scattered everywhere at all hours
of the day.and night. It's a presence
on the American landscape you
simply can't escape kinda like
"big box" McDonald's restaurants.
Researching for the story on.
page one of this week's edition, it
came to mind that Wal-Mart has
Been a pretty good corporate and
commercial citizen in Baker Couri-
ty since its south Macclenny store
opened 17 years ago.


IMPRESSIONS



The same can surely be said of
the Wal-Mart giant that lurks just
outside Macclenny to the east -one
that fewer people see each day but
one with a huge economic presence
in Baker County. That would be the
Distribution Center.
Since it opened in the spring of
2002, the center has expanded rap-
idly to nearly 1000 employees,
working at wages that were un-
heard of in this neck of the woods.
Wal-Mart is often accused of un-
derpaying its store workers and
welshing on benefits, but not the
distribution center employees.
In fact, the company drew wide-
spread grumbling when it opened
here by anteing up the going wages
instead of pulling them dow n.
Granted, a behemoth company
like Wal-Mart isn't for all of us, but
with fe% exceptions one would be
hard-pressed to find how either its
retail or %warehouse operations have
done anything but advance the
standard of living here in Baker
County.
It can't be said they closed up
"Main St." when the present store
opened. Most of Baker County's
"Mom and Pop" businesses that
went bust did so as much due to
Jacksonville or local competitors as
SWal-Marr. -. -r -,,
We ma. find ourselves someday-
regretting we ever said that, but for
now it's reality.
A Wal-Mart spokesman was
quoted in this week's article saying
the company likes to help draw in
new tenants to the stores it vacates.
That's what will happen, probably
within a year, to its store on South
6th St., which for 17 years has been
the retail epicenter of Baker Coun-
ty and surrounding areas.
We'll take the spokesman at his
\ord. and hope Macclenny jumps
in the effort to keep the Corner-
stone Center as close to economi-
cally viable as it can be post-Wal-
Mart.
The property manager at Cor-
nerstone predicted Baker County is
economically viable enough with
its projected growth to attract a
good second tenant.
I think he's right.

Interest

More than two years ago, the
New River Solid Waste Associa-
tion refinanced a $3 million loan
specifically to get out from under a
5% interest rate with the Rural
Economic and Community Devel-
opment Agency.
So the board and Director Dar-
rell O'Neal were upset to learn re-
cently that the 3.2% rate they ne-
gotiated with the former CNB
Bank of Macclenny had been in-
creased following a takeover by
Mercantile Bank.
"We had a five year agreement
for that rate on an 11-year loan,
but in the merger, Mercantile in-
creased the rate to 5%, and now
we're again paying $10,000 a
month interest," Mr. O'Neal ex-
plained.
So in a special meeting'July 28,
the board decided to do what it
had not wanted to do in April 2003
- use cash reserves to pay off the
loan and emerge debt free. ,


Two Baldwin sisters died the
morning of August 2 when their
southbound Chevrolet slammed
into a turning tractor-trailer truck
at the intersection of US 301 and
Interstate 10.
Driver Jamie L\nn Carter, 26.
died at the scene and her sister. 20-
year-old Tracie Lynn Carter was
taken from the scene t6 Shands
Jacksonville where she died fol-
low ing the accident at 6:25 am.
Trooper T. Hall of the Florida
Highway) Patrol said charges are
pending against Lazaro Gonzalez
of Hialeah. Florida. who apparent-
ly turned his Freightliner truck into
the path of the Carter vehicle. Mr.
Gonzalez w\as attempting to turn
onto the westbound entrance ramp
to the interstate.
The Chevrolet struck the right
side of the trailer portion of the
turning truck. said the trooper.
In another serious accident, this

speeding stop

A Macclenny man was arrested
for misdemeanor possession of mar-
ijuana July 31 after police stopped
him for speeding on US 90.
Daryll Gatlin, 20, was east-
bound into Macclenny just before
midnight when he was clocked do-
ing 62 miles per hour in a 45 mph
zone.
Deputy Charles Goldsmith.
who was sitting at the First Christ-
ian Church of Macclenny, stopped
Mr. Gatlin in the parking lot of
Custom Automotive Designs.
A computer check found that
Mr. Gatlin's license had been sus-
pended and that he had an arrest
warrant from Hamilton County.
As the officer was checking
him for weapons, Mr. Gatlin told
him he had marijuana hidden in
the waistband of his pants.

Actually, the landfill operation
will not be destitute there are
still untapped funds that could be
used in'an emergency. The audit
for the period ending September
2004 showed $3.8 million in "re-
stricted" assets destined to pay for
eventual closure and post-closure
monitoring, and the loan payoff is
only $2.7 million.
"We're not required to escrow
for post-closure because we're a
public entity, and it won't be for
40-50 years. So we'll be able to
build it back up, especially if
we're not pal ing $10,000 a month
interest," Mr. O'Neal said.
He noted that before the 1997
agreement allowing Alachua'
County to haul garbage to New
River's tri-county Ellerbee Curve
Landfill, there were no escrow ac-
counts for closure, post-closure, or
ne\\ cell construction.
The Alachua income also al-
lows the landfill to keep per ton


Slow-driving suspect is


stopped; hit with a DUI


A Starke woman was arrested
for driving under the influence Ju-
ly 30 after a deputy' noticed her
going 20 miles per hour under the
speed limit.
Wanda Lee, 42, was driving
south on CR 125 approaching
Mud Lake Road around 9:13 pm.
Deputy Brad Dougherty was
two cars back when Ms. Lee
turned east on Mud Lake. w ith no
tail light, brake light or turn signal.
The officer followed her long'
enough to see her weaving across
the road.
Ms. Lee admitted drinking rum
and Coke se\ eral hours earlier.
She failed roadside sobriety
tests, then took a breath test that
measured her blood alcohol at .08.
In Florida, .08 is considered in-
toxicated.
In other DUIs:
William Lloyd, 20, of Mac-
clenny was arrested July 30 after
Ibeiig invol-vedin a crash at SR
121 and Barber Road.
Mr. Lloyd failed roadside sobri-
ety tests, then took a breath test
that measured his blood alcohol at'
.211 and .217.


Hung Nguyen. 33. of Jack-
sonville was arrested July 27 after
motorists on Interstate 10 reported
him driving erratically and running
cars off the road.
He exited onto SR 121 south
where police caught up to him as
he turned on Estate Road.
He failed roadside sobriety\ tests
and took a breath test that mea-
sured his blood alcohol at .136 and
.141. :
James Ruckman, 43, of North
Carolina \w as arrested August 1 af-
ter police saw him pull into a. gas
station parking lot at high speed,

Deputy Brad Dougherty arrived
at the Citgo station on CR 125
near 1-10 around 12:46 am to find
Mr. Ruckman sitting on the curb
yelling profanities at no one in
particular.
He also was yelling, "I've got

costs low as well as pay annual
"rebate" dividends to sponsoring
counties Baker, Bradford and Un-
ion.
The debt was for construction
of Cell 2, and the board is prepar-
ing to build Cell 5. A new loan
will likely be needed for that pro-
ject, but new cells have beerrcost-
ing much less since much of the
work is done by the regular land-
fill crew rather than a contractor.
The debt payoff makes it neces-
sary to redraft the 2005-06 budget,
which had already been tentatively
approved. The landfill board drafts
its budget early so. member coun-
ties will know the amount of per.
ton tipping fees to. figure into their


own spending plans. Those per ton
fees will not be affected by the
loan repayment.
In other business during the
special meeting, the board agreed
to allow Nextel South Corporation
to put up a 250 foot cell phone
tower on a 100x100 foot parcel at
the southern property edge. The
agreement for a $1000 per month
rental fee includes a 3% annual in-
crease and antenna space for the
landfill communications network.
In a third item, Ringpower rep-
resentative Mark Hill agreed to
sell the landfill a compactor at
$340,615, a "piggyback" price set
with a recent bid opening in Co-
lumbia County.

restaurant,

then flees
A Glen St. Mary man was ar-
rested July 30 after eating a meal
at a newly opened barbeque res-
taurant, then leaving without pay-
ing for it.
Jeremy Anderson, 39, went to
Willard's BBQ on SR 121 near
the interstateat about 11:46 am.
He ordered beans and franks, and
sweet tea.
Mr. Anderson, who is 6'3", 307
pounds, apparently was hoping no-
body would notice him as he tried
to slip out without paying his
$7.79 tab.
Russell Willard, however, spot-
ted Mr. Anderson and confronted
him about the bill.
Mr. Anderson fled, but Mr. Wil-
lard got his license number and
called police.
Deputies found Mr. Anderson
in the parking lot of Fraser's Food
in Glen St. Mary, where they ar-
rested him for petit theft.
In another theft case, police
filed forgery and fraud charges
against Anthony Juliana, 24, of
Macclenny after determining he
stole a money order from his land-
lord, altered it and used it to make
a car payment.
The money order was mailed by
another tenant who was paying
rent.
A woman who lives at the same
Ivy Street address as Mr. Juliana
said he was out of town on busi-
ness for two weeks.
Police filed charges with the
state attorney.


Drunk, tries to enter a home


A Macclenny woman was ar-
rested for disorderly intoxication
July 31 after trying to enter a
home on North Boulevard at 2 am.
Judy Young, 47, was sitting on
the front steps of the home when
Deputy Jimmy Stalnaker arrived.
She smelled of alcohol and con-
firmed she'd been drinking.
When the officer asked her why
she was at the home, she told him


she needed to go to the hospital
because she had broken ribs but
her mother had unplugged the
phone.
As Deputy Stalnaker tried to
elicit additional information, Ms.
Young became increasingly argu-
mentative, leading to her arrest.
In similar cases:
Jimmi Gordon, 37, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for trespassing
July 26 after she refused to leave a


Drugs are found at checkpoint


A DUI checkpoint on US 90 in
Olustee July 29 nabbed a man who
had cocaine, and the prescription
drugs Ecstasy and Cialis in his car.
James Whitaker, 33, whose ad-
dress is a post office box in Jasper,
was charged with possession of a
controlled substance, possession of
cocaine and possession of a con-
trolled substance without prescrip-
tion, all of which are felonies..
When Mr. Whitaker pulled up
to the checkpoint at 11:45 pm,
Deputy Darrin Whitaker approach-
ed the driver's side and smelled
marijuana coming from the car.
A state trooper on the other side
of the car asked the passenger, Jef-

Six year

sentence...

(from page one)
informants did with Mr. Young.
After he gets- out of prison, Mr.
Young must serve three years of
drug-offender probation.
Kendrick Clayton, 28, of San-
derson was sentenced to three
years in prison with credit for 374
days already served for violating
probation on drug convictions.
He had multiple violations of
probation, including failing a drug
test.
Other sentencing from July 25:
Jason Morgan, 24, of Mac-
clenny got 366 days in prison for
sale and possession of cocaine.
Mr. Morgan sold powder co-
caine February 4 to a police infor-
mant at a home on Chad Road off'
Woodlawn. He was arrested about
three weeks later.
Nikolaus Coffman was sen-
tenced to two years in prison for
violating probation.
He was on probation for steal-
ing a Baker County Sheriff's pa-
trol car and leading police on a
high-speed chase, causing six,
crashes before being caught on In-
terstate 10.
He was sentenced in February
2003 to one year in jail and five
years' probation. He violated pro-
bation by failing a drug test.
A jury on July 21 found Girra-
deau Hugger riot guilty of felony
fleeing or attempting to elude po-
lice.
He \ as accused of dri. ing a sto-
len car when he was stopped for
speeding last September on Inter-
Sstate lo0.
The Florida Highwa\ patrol of-
ficer said he approached the car
and Mr. Hugger took off, weaving
through traffic and forcing cars off
the road.
The car was later found aban-
doned in the parking lot of the
Burger King on US 301 in Bald-
in.
SAnother jury found Bruno Jones,
34, of Sanderson guilty of posses-
sion and sale of cocaine.
He sold the drug to a police in-
formant.


"This won't make you much
money, but it could save you a
lot," Northeast Florida Regional
Council GIS manager Keith Joiner
suggested during an August 2
workshop with the Baker County
Commission.
He demonstrated St. Johns
County's site, starting with a broad
scale map, then "drilling down"
via computer mouse clicks to
increasingly detailed views of in-
dividual properties. Included were
aerial views, a map sketch delin-
eating boundaries of a parcel, data
on a side panel of the acreage or
square footage, land use and zon-
ing, sales history, nearby schools,
elected officials.
If available via a Web site, the
county's data could allow develop-
ers or potential property buyers to
check out sites without traveling
here. That would save them time
and money for the county also,
since employees would not ha\ e to
find maps and other data to help
customers.
But a county-wide system would
be expensive, with estimates rang-
ing to $150.000 depending on
complexity. .

decided earlier this year to upgrade
the system .installed in 2001 by
predecessor Gary Barber.
"It just hasn't been kept up, so
we have to build it back. We al-
ready use it with the building and
zoning department for flood maps,
but every department in the county
could use it," Mr. Sweat said.'
George Beatty of the Florida
Department of Revenue said the
system can be so detailed, it was
possible to locate every mobile
home in Desoto County after Hur-
ricane Charlie last fall.
"We were able to go to each site
to make sure it was covered, to see
if it had been displaced."
A study committee of depart-
ment heads and other key person-
nel will research how complex a
system will be needed and look
for ways to fund it.
In other business August 2, the
commission hired Tarbox Consult-
ing and Design Inc., of Jackson-
ville to review subdivision plats
and other development plans. The

Runners-upfor Florida Sheriff Deputies of the Year...
Sgts. Thomas Dyal (left) and Michael Crews (right) hold plaques accepted by SheriffJoey Dobson last week at the annual Florida Sheriff's
summer conference in Naples naming them first runners-up for the honor of Deputy of the Year in the state. The officers were recognized
for professionalism and bravery in the Memorial Day, 2004 shootout with a robbery suspect in Glen St. Mary. The suspect was killed. Top
honor in the state went to an Orange County deputy shot seven times by two robbery suspects who also were killed. The female deputy con-
fronted the suspects after a home invasion call. Both local deputies were wounded in the shootout, Sgt. Dyal by a bullet that luckily grazed
his head and buried itself just under the skin and Sgt. Crews by a bullet that struck his hand. At the same conference, Sheriff Dobson was'
selected secretary of the state organization that lobbies fr Fclri, u sheriffs.


Authority lowers mileage


The Baker County Hospital Au-
thority has lowered the rate it will
tax property owners, but nonethe-
less expects revenue to increase.
according to its proposed 2'005-j06
budget.
The budget, presented at the

tals about $1.7 million.
Authority members approved a

Property tax revenue is project-
ed to be $900,747, about a 4.7 per-

to reduce taxes while increasing
revenue.

Deep appreciation
To all the friends of Susan
Starling, we were hesitant to send'
individual thank you card, as we
might accidentally leave someone
out. First of all to Donriie, OUT sis-
ter had never been so happy. Y'ou'
Save her the happiest and most
wonderful years of her life. We are
so glad you are a par of our fami-
ly. She loved you more than you'll
ever know.
Now, to all the wonderful
friends, it meant so much for us to
be treated with such sincere kind-
ness when we came to attend
Susan's services. Two of us had
never been to her home and \\e
especially wanted to experience
just how happy she was and to
meet all of her friends. It gave us a
peaceful closure to see just how
much she was loved. We were in
awe at the many people who came
to say goodbye to her and the
many, man); beautiful flowers sent.
Richard and Arleen were wel-
comed to spend time with Donnie
and Susan. They hase made so
many friends at these times. Don't
forget them, you, are, each and

Christian acceptance does

not imply anything goes


PENSEE



Several recent encounters have
shown me the confusion existing
over Christian concepts.
Terms like acceptance, grace,
free-will, repentance, forgiveness.
holiness, and sanctification are of-
ten misunderstood and create un-,
warranted stress on those seeking
to follow Christ. It is important
those desiring to know Jesus 'un-
derstand how these concepts fit to-
gether.
Does the term acceptance inimpl
"anything goes?" Does free-will
exclude grace? Does the term
sanctification imply you aren't
saved if you fail to be "holy"?
SThe first critical term, accep-
tance, requires understanding be-
fore \we can even approach Christ.
Mlan\ stay well-clear of God, be--
lieving they must first get them-
selies "cleaned-up." They believe
They must be better than the\ cur-
rently are or become "hol\" before
they can- approach a holy God.
They continually try to improve
their likes and fail oser and over
again.
Nothing could be further from
Jesus' example. Time and again
the Bible shows Jesus accepting
people in their existing condition.
The man called "Legion" IMark
5:1-19). the man sick of the palsy
(Matt. 9:2-7). the woman with the
issue of blood (Matt. 9:20-22), the
woman of Canaan (Nlatt 15:22-28).
are but a few% of the man\ exam-
ples of people \iewed as unclean
and unwvorth\ in their time, but ac-
cepted by Jesus. The\ weren't re-
quired to be clean, health,. sin-free
or church members before Jesus
touched the ache in their souls.
Jesus was described as being
full of compassion as he taught the
people about God and His King-
dom. He was reported as healing
the sick and driving out demons
wherever He went. There is no
Biblical doubt Jesus responded to
those who came to Him with nc-
*.-eeptaTl e-'.,'- o --,., ,,-.. ...-
S But to know Jesus in this w\ a\,
another acceptance must take
place. \We must accept our need for
more than currently experienced.
In every example listed abo\ e. rec-
ognition existed that they needed
help with their lives. Until accep-


tance of that truth, we will never
experience the touch of Jesus as
they did.
Instead our experience will be
more like that of the Pharisees and
Sadducees. They approached Jesus
with questions, skepticism and of-
ten anger and fear. Jesus reminded
them, "Those who are well have
no need of a physician, but those
who are sick; I have not come to
call the righteous, but sinners to
repentance." (Luke 5:31, RSV) Je-
sus accepted the Pharisees and
their questions as surely as he ac-
cepted the outcast, but He never
failed to confront them if their
teaching served to keep others from
recognizing God in His mercy.
Acceptance is a forerunner to
the other Christian concepts. It is
the urgency of the heartache that
pushes us into His presence, and
the wonder of His love that re-
ceives us in that need. Christian
acceptance neser standsalone nor
implies anything future. It is only,
Swhai it is: the beginning of a rela-
tionship ith an almighty God.

Children from families whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for
free or reduced price meals.
Only one free and reduced price meal application is needed for each family. If
appro\'ed for free or reduced price meals, each child living in Nour household and at-
tending a Baker County public school listed on the family meal application would be
eligible. If applying for more than one Foster Child (a legal responsibility of a welfare
agency or court) in your household, you must complete a separate application for each
child.
Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter to parents or guardians.
To apple for free or reduced price meals, households should fill out the application and
return it to the school. Copies are also available at the principal's office in each school.
If ou ha\e questions, or need assistance completing the application, call the Nutrition
Services office at (904) 59-4330.
The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of deter-
mining eligibility and may be \erified at any time during the school year by school
and/or other program officials.
Households that receive Food Stamps or TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy
Families) are required to list on the application only the child's name and Food Stamp
number or TANF case number, and signature of adult household member.
For the school officials to determine eligibility. all other households must provide
the following information listed on the application:
(1) names of all children in your household attending a Baker County Public
School:
(2) names of all household members related or not;
(3) the total gross income received last month and how ofter it was received next to
the name of the household member receiving the income under the appropriate column
as to the type of income it is (such as earning from work, child cuppor, social security,
etc. );
1(4) Social Security number of the adult signing the application or check the box in-
dicating they do not have a Social Security number,
(5) and the signature of an adult household member certifying that the information
provided is correct
Households that have a household member in the military and receive housing
allowances as part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, should not in-
dude their housing allowance as income. All other allowance must be included in
their gross income.
Households with deployed service members are to consider them as part of
their household and to report only the portion of the deployed service member's
income made available to the household. Any other income for other members in
the household should be reported.
Households that list a Food Stamp or TANF case number must report to the school
when Food Stamps or TANF are no longer received Applications may be submitted at
any time during the year.
Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal policy, each school will re-
view\ applications and determine temporary eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatis-
fied with the ruling of the official, he/she may wish to discuss the decision with the de-
termining official on an informal basis. If the parent wishes to make a formal appeal,
he/she may make a request either verbally by contacting the Nutrition Services office at
259-4330. or in writing to: Office of the Superintendent, 392 South Blvd. East, Mac-
clenny, Florida 32063. The policy contains an outline of the hearing procedure.
If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the
school should be contacted. Such changes may make the children of the household eli-
gible for reduced price meals, or for additional benefits such as flee meals, if the house-
hold income falls at or below the levels shown above.
In certain cases, foster children are also eligible for these benefits If a household has
foster children living with them and wishes to apply for such meals for the foster
child'student, the household should contact the school for more information.
If you are applying for a child that is homeless, migrant, or a runaway call
your child's school or the Nutrition Services office at (904) 2594330.
Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the free and
reduced price meal application may be used by the school system in determining
whether the child is eligible for other educational programs.
In the operation of child feeding programs administered by the U.S. Department d?
Agriculture, no child will be discriminated against because of race, color, sex, national
origin, age or handicap. If any member of a household believes he/she has been dis-
criminated against, he/she should write immediately to the Secretary of Agriculture,
Washington, D.C. 20250.

tinue a successful school meal program with no increase in meal prices, it is vital that we
. have your cooperation with meal prepayments. Parents are strongly encouraged. to pay in

cies from extending credit to aid individuals and in the past,"no lunch money" emergen-
- cies have been greatly abused. It is for this reason that we encourage you to pay on your
.child's account as often as you like. All monies are carried over from day to day, week to
week, etc. Students having no money on their accounts or which have not been approved for
free meal benefits, will not be allowed to participate in the, breakfast program. If extensive
credit has been provided, please expect a phone call or note from the Nutrition Services
.Mianager or Principal at your child's school. It is your responsibility to check periodically
Sfor.your'child's account balance. Meal charges are-not permitted at Baker County Middle
:Sc.hool and Baker County High School. If your child is entering Baker County Middle
I SchIol hi Sixth Grade Center for the first time, please be sure to send lunch money or a

Remake is 'Bad News' for kids


BY BOB GERARD
Features and Commentary
My first suggestion if you're
planning on going to see Billy Bob
Thornton in Bad News Bears is
that if you have a 10-year-old who
is dying to see this movie, leave
the kid home and let him watch
the Walter Mathau version. As a
movie that purports to be for young
people, it is way too crude for
most of the kids I know.
It's funny, but I strongly advise
parents see it before ever consider-
ing bringing their kids. Otherwise,
you might be unpleasantly sur-
prised.
The movie is a remake of the
seventies film about a group of ab-
solute misfit little leaguers who no
one wants on their. team. Either
they are no good, have some phys-
ical or mental impairment, or are a
step away from the reform school.
They all wind up under the tute-
lage of Morris Buttermaker, a has-
been former major leaguer who is
hired by one of the kids' over-
achiever moms to coach the team.
lie's a drunk who puts whisky in a
non-alcoholic beer can and mum-
bles his way through his first day
as coach.
His opposite number is Roy
Bullock (Greg Kinnear), a go-get-
ter coach whose team has won the
league title for years and wants no
part of Buttermaker or his: team of
misfits. The two are immediately
at odds.
Buttermaker isn't on much bet-
ter terms with his own team, which
is made up of foreign kids who
don't know the game, kids who
have never picked up a bat or mal-
contents who would rather fight.
than'play.
SButtermaker can't do much
with his team, which gets blown
out of the first couple of games.
That's when he brings in his es-
tranged daughter who lives with
his ex-wife and whom he hasn't
seen in years. The girl has a fast-
ball nobody can hit, but she and
her dad don't exactly get along.
The team starts to turn around


with her on the mound and starts
winning when it enlists the aid of a
bad-boy power-hitter who's inter-
ested in Buttermaker's daughter.
The team is destined to meet up
with Bullock's Yankees.
The film follows the original
pretty closely. What they've done
to update it is by giving the kids
mouths that would make a sailor
blush. Their language and actions
really make them the Bad News
Bears, but also make it so most of
the kids who would want to see
this movie really shouldn't.
It's more appropriate for a high
school or college crowd. Thornton
is rough and raunchy where Walter
Mathau was getting into practice
for his role in Grumpy Old Men.
I laughed at a lot of the jokes
and enjoyed some of the kids' an-
tics, but as an adult, worried the 10
-year-olds in the audience would
go home and try some of the stuff
they saw in the film.
There are some good perfor-
mances, particularly from Timmy
Deters as the kid who would rather
fight than play ball and Brandon
Craggs as a heavy kid wto can't
keep from' arguing with him.
Amanda Wurlitzer does a nice
job as Buttermaker's daughter and
Troy Gentile is up to the task as
the power hitter on his way to the
reform school. But it is Billy Bob
who controls the film.
SConsidering what director Rich-
ard Linklater (School of Rock,
Dazed and Confused) has chosen
to do with this film, Thornton is
the perfect protagonist. He is every.
little league parent's worst night-


mare.
I really enjoyed Linklater's
School of Rock, which had a much
bigger heart than Bad News Bears.
There's not a lot of redeeming
qualities here, but it is funny.
Bad News Bears is rated a hard
PG-13 for language; I give it two
out of four stars.


Mushball game

nament between Macclenny and

Like salaries and benefits, sup-

said associate superintendent Glenn
McKeridree.
Supplements are paid in addition
to the salaries coaches earn working
for the school district. Individuals
must be employed by the district -
though not necessarily as teachers -
to be paid for coaching.
"In public schools, you're an ed-

A new year of Baker County
High School sports got started this
week with three days of volleyball
workouts and tryouts.
Karla Amburgey, who is starting
her third season as head coach,
was excited by the turn out August
1.
"We had 22 girls on the first
day, that is fantastic. We'll have
even more tomorrow because I had

head.coaches in boys and girls bas-

high school band director and voca-
tional agricultural advisors.
Besides the head coach supple-
ment, the football team is allotted
seven assistant coaches, each
scheduled to receive $2500.
That makes the total for football
supplements $21,275, which is
nearly half the the $46,100 budget-
ed for all boys sports coaching
staffs.
Adding girls' sports supplements
pushes the total budget for high
school coaches to $74,275.
Football accounts for 29 percent
of that.

Ruise also coaches boys track,

Overall, Franklin Griffis is sec-

earning $7375. In addition to being
the head coach of girls basketball,
he is an assistant coach with the
Football and softball teams.
Scott McDonald is third highest,
receiving $6100 as head coach of

she deemed successful.
"We had good turnouts for our
sessions and a fabulous summer
camp."
Although Amburgey lost six
girls to graduation, it looks like
there is enough interest among un-
derclassmen to fill in. Seven ninth
graders showed up Monday.


"We're going to have a JV
squad this year."
The junior varsity squad will

with assistant Tiffany Armoreda
and Kathy Richardson, who will
help out both coaches.
Tryouts end at 4 pm August 4,
at which time the team will be
chosen.
