Board plans to dip into reserve about $1 million to balance spending-revenues



County budget S21 million

Lulled by the past two fiscal
year audits showing the strategy
has not truly dipped into reserve.

sion will again tap that resource to
balance the $21 million budget.
As it stands now, if adopted as

His goal?


Return to county,

as a chef, open


Italian restaurant

BY BOB GERARD
Press Features
At the tender of age of 12, most kids have trouble making a box
of macaroni and cheese, but Josey Crews was helping prepare
meals for 600 people. Now, at 17, Crews has started his own ca-
tering business and plans to enter cooking school in the fall.
Crews, the son of Mike Crews and Donna Nipper of Macclen-
ny, wants to be a chef. No, take that back. He plans to be a chef
and he is well on his way to making his dream a reality.
"My dream is to come back to Baker County and open my own
gourmet Italian restaurant," he says enthusiastically. When asked
if Baker County is ready for gourmet Italian cuisine he laughs.
"Not now, but in five years it will be."
That positive way of viewing the future-radiates from Crews.
He talks so clearly and with such excitement about his future
plans that it is infectious. "After high school, I plan to go to the
Culinary Institute of America in New York," he says. After that,
it's back to Baker County and his own Italian restaurant.
Crews got his start working with Janet Teague of Macclenny.
She has her own catering business and runs Granny Jannie's lunch
wagon downtown. Crews began working with Teague at ten years,
of age and has been one of her right hand men ever since.
"Janet is an advisor, a mentor and a third mother to me," said
Crews. He laughs when talking about the first thing she ever
taught him to make. "When I was about ten, she taught me how to
make chicken and dumplings. When I was done, I had flour all

The Baker County Sheriff's Of-
fice placed third in Florida in the
number of DUI and other arrests
recorded August 19-Septembert 5
during an enforcement mobiliza-
tion effort sponsored by the depart-
ment of Transportation.
Five drunk driving arrests were
recorded durtglig-te span leading.

with 14 felony arrests.

censes, seven for drug offenses and
25 fugitives were rounded up.
The figures were compiled by
the department and submitted last
week before a state deadline.
BCSO booked four periods of
increased patrolling during the pe-
riod looking ti drunk drivers but
otherwise took no extraordinary
st.ps like DUI chec points,

mented by an estimated $1 million
in existing reserves.
In all, the county is carrying five
times that amount, but much of it is
encumbered like the $2 million
loan proceeds for paving projects
and grant revenue already in the
system and dedicated to specific
uses.
The strategy displeases Com-
missioner Alex Robinson.
"We never have budgeted to bal-


ance the budget. We have mostly
just taken the department requests
and found the money," he said dur-
.ing the fourth and final budget
workshop September 12.'
"But no one seems way out of
line thi- year," countered Commis-
sioner Mark Hartley.
And last year's plan to allow on-
ly pay raises and a few other line
item increases was unsuccessful,
Chairman Julie Combs pointed out.


Cats are fumbling with three straight losses...
The football pops loose from running back Luscious Lee as he punches through the line during the Wildcats' 14-9 loss at Gainesville East-
side September 9. The Ramins recovered the fumble. Lee went on to lead the team in rushing with 75 yards on 13 carries. It was Baker
High 's third straight close loss to begin the 2005 season. The first district game is this neek against Raines High School. It begins at 7:30
pm at Memorial Stadium. GAME STORY-MORE PHOTOS PAGES 8 AND 9


Many departments will have end-
of-year amendments to cover spend-
ing that went beyond the original
budget.
The main focus through all four
workshops this fall has been sala-
ries specifically "merit" raises
above the stipulated $1200 for em-
ployees making under $25,000,
f $1000 for up to $35,000, 2.5% for
higher paid workers.
County Manager Jason Griffis
wants to have a structured salary
plan in place before next year's
budget talks. Veteran commission-
ers hope other elected officers will
also accept a plan with likened en-
try level salaries and perhaps some
extra raises at special anniversary
landmarks a similar plan more
than 15 \ears ago was soundly re-
jected by those officials, \\ho can
appeal such issues to the governor
and cabinet.
For instance, assistant tax collec-
tor Barbara Yarbrough \%ill get an
extra $2000 raise for reaching the
20 year mark. Clerk of Courts' Al
Fraser said he likely will gi\ e simi-
lar increases to several deputy
clerks who have also reached that
longevity mark.
Heading into the public hearing
this Thursday, September 15, at 6
pm. here's how the departments
look:
Animal Control: $'5,4-10, up S307 or .41%.
Officer Georgia Monfort will get $1200 addi-
lional for upkeep in the nevw animal pound,
$1000 to finish stalls for small hvestock, a fence,
and ehaust fans. Salarin and benefits are down
Building, Planning and Zoning Depart-
ment: $232,097, up 539,508 or 2051' Plan-

mission for their administrative and bookkeep-
ing needs. Any grants received often have allo-
cations for administration.
Clerk of Courts Al Fraser: $258,685, up
$149,502 or 136.93%, for his department's ser-
vices as clerk to the commission. Much of the
increase reflects moving the county's finance
department within his budget rather than as a
separate reporting entity.
A separate $7000 covers the county's share
of Mr. Fraser's duties as clerk of circuit court.'
This is the second year that most of the
clerk's budget is under state control balanced
by much of the revenue also going to state cof-
fers. His county-funded budget covers areas
like land transaction recording, which brought
$132,680 revenue during the 2004 calendar
year.
At the end of his first year as a "fee officer,"
Mr. Fraser expects to turn over about $75,000
as the county's share of that revenue.
Community Action Agency: $15,000, the
same as last year.
Community Behavioral Services:
$506,747, up $29,358 or 6.15%. This is "pass
through" money from the state to handle mental
health services.
Comprehensive Community Services:
The same $2500 as last. year toward the cost of
a day center for adults with disabilities.
Council on Aging: $166,125, up $33,225
or 25% from the budgeted amount this year.
The increase will go to reinstate employee
health insurance coverage, for which the coun-
cil plans to pay half the premium. However, the
county actually handed over $366,578 during
fiscal 2004-05 to help bail the council out of
deep financial woes created partly because
grant matching money was being allocated mul-
tiple times. The current budget shows each
grant and the local match required. It also has
no salary raises.
'County Commission: $882,450, down
$32,997 or -3.6%. The main decrease is because
new $95,000 accounting software for the fi-
nance department was purchased in the 2004-05
budget. The major increases for the new fiscal
year include moving code enforcement and spe-
cial projects manager Bobby Hancock out of
the building and zoning department budget, and
adding $15,600 (new total $25,000) for profes-
sional services like engineering and special
studies.
Commissioners will each get a new $100
per month travel allowance rather than submit-
ting vouchers for reimbursement. The total
$11,500 travel budget will also include "public
relations" funds to treat Tallahassee lobbyists to
lunch.
County Manager Jason Griffis will get an
extra $1000 raise, boosting his salary to
$49,663. There was some discussion over his
salary being lower than several long-time de-
partment heads: information technology direc-
tor Nick Frilling's new salary will be $52,545,
emergency management director Rick Clark
will jump to $54,660, and road superintendent
Robert Fletcher to $51,253.
Circuit Court: $58,658, up $4560 or
8.43%. Each of the six counties in the Eighth
Judicial Circuit is assessed by population or
percentage of caseload, depending on the item,
and Baker County's share of various budget
items is 7%.
The county will also pay $26,122 toward
the cost of state attorney costs and $19,583 for
the public defender.
A separate fund covers the county's $4500
share of County Judge Joey Williams' office


budget
c'a t hat .of s e-re
Costs. Judge Williams' salaryt'aind that sec'fe-
: tary Polly Gore are paid by the state.
County Attorney Terry Brown: $50,050,
up $20,050 or 66.56%. The corrimission may
consider hiring an attorney either full time or on
a retainer basis instead of the hourly fee paid to
Mr. Brown.
Courthorthouse: $151,782, up $22,173 or
17.11%. The main increase is electric and water
utilities expected to cost $86,000 the coming
year, an increase based on experience from
the current $60,500 allocation. $5000 has been
shaved off repairs and maintenance, $500 off
supplies, also based on experience.
Elections Supervisor Nita Crawford:
$324,452, up $27,642 or 9.31%. New voting
equipment mandated by' the state accounts for
most of the increase, the rest mostly for routine
salary raises and related costs.
Emergency Management: $203,100, up
$251 or .12%. A $28,000 increase to replace a
vehicle is countered with a decrease in a grant
that last year brought $56,817, plus some other
cuts based on actual expenses this year.
Episcopal Child Care: The same $5000
donation as this year.
Extension Office: $126,063, up $5783 or
4.81%. All the increase covers salary hikes. The
county pays only a share of salaries for the di-
rector, 4-H and home economics agents, but
picks up the full salary for a secretary'and half
the pay for an assistant shared with the Soil and
Water Conservation office.
Facilities Maintenance: $304,632, up
$16,800 or 5.85%. County Manager Jason
Griffis presented a list of proposed repairs,
many of which can be scheduled for late in the
fiscal year for a chance to assess available mon-
ey. Mr. Griffis also wants more attention to rou-
tine maintenance rather than waiting for roof
leaks and other problems.
Fire Department: $240,191, up $162,103
or 40.29%. A proposal for fire chief Richard
Dolan to become full-time was at least tem-
1porarily shelved. It may be reconsidered to be-
come effective at mid fiscal year in March.
Chief*Dolan may be asked to become certified
as fire marshall, a job currently done by John
Motherwell.
Garbage Collection: $696,941, up $36,360
or 5:5%. Curbside collection is currently on
hold pending more data on the costs, how to
handle current private haulers, and whether to
keep any of the sites open f6r yard debris, appli-
ances and furniture.
Health Department: $69,664, up $6129 or
9.65%.
Information Services: $115,462, up $896
or .78%. There was extensive discussion of
splitting up this department, but in the end it
was deemed better to retain the current status.


is $21 million...


Nick'.Ffill'Ti 6/il'i continueo'!o 6'.s:'tl resp'on-
sible for County Annex tenants: the tax collec-
tor, property appraiser and elections supervisor
offices.
Courthouse technician Clint Shivers will get
a $7000 increase to $30,000, to match the pro-
posed:salary for a new sheriff's department
computer tech.
The commission wants the other technicians
cross-trained on the software programs for the
appraiser and tax collector offices, most of it
written by Mr. Frilling.
911 Department: $117,200, up $12,311 or
.11.74%. A new $6000 is included for a grant
match, $5000 as a share of electricity costs at
the emergency operations center.
A $286,283 enhancement grant is in a sepa-
rate fund..
Property Appraiser Tim Sweat: $491,242,
up $23,442 or 5.02%. The county pays 89.34%
or $444,429 of his budget, the remainder comes
from other taxing authorities.
Mr. Sweat said a second part time position
gives him more employee hours while saving
money on insurance and other benefits. He said
there has been a 9% increase in building per-
mits ten new subdivisions with 350 lots; and a
14% increase in land transactions the past year,
meaning his staff has to handle more phone
calls and office visits. There are 11 properties'
with up to 13,307 lots in the./proposal stages,
Mr. Sweat said.
Recreation Department: $130,611, up
$8509 or 6.97%. Most of the increase is for re-
pairs to aging equipment, rising fuel and build-
ing material prices.
Rescue: $7,44,434, down $15,825 or -
2.08%. Lower grant funding is the main de-
crease, down $26,125. There is also an $18,976
cut in overtime hours, a factor of the 2004 ne-
gotiations for the Baker County EMS Profes-
sionals union that bars counting vacation days
off toward qualifying for time-and-a-half pay,
Road Department: $4,320,180, up
$169,044 or 4.07%. The commission approved
one new dumptruck, one new pickup, both half
the number requested. $33,000 overtime is bud-
geted, an additional $10,000, based on storm-
related work schedules this year.
Sheriff Joey Dobson: $4,395,306, 'up
$563,967 or 14.72%. This includes $750 extra
,pay hike for about 46 employees as certified
law enforcement officers, boosting starting
deputy pay to $22,250, and six new employees.
Sheriff Dobson will also get a computer techni-
cian, who will be paid by the county as part of
the information technology department.
,Soil & Water Conservation District:
$19,921, up $622 or 3.22%.
Taber Public Library: $133,725, up
,$5226 or 4.07%. There is also a separate


l 5-,." i -tlm.j:I f. .r ,l i I aid'grati< ." '
S Tax Collector Gene Harvey: $535,162, up
$13,919 or 2.67%. Again, the county pays a
share of his expenses, 62.97% or $337,000,
which includes the full cost of the assessment
clerk for fire and garbage disposal fees.
However, Harvey by choice works on the
fee system, paying his expenses from the mon-
ey collected by his office, then remitting the re-
:mainder to the county at the end of the fiscal
:year. The county finance office figures a mod-
est $42,000, bui Mr Har'. e hjs eslimaled it

Arrested for thefts from the FBI


The FBI and Jacksonville Sher-
iff's Office enlisted the help of.
local police September 9 arresting
a man in Sanderson for breaking
into a FBI van during Super Bowl
week.
A warrant for burglary and
dealing in stolen property had
been issued for Keidrick L. Ewing,
37, who was living with relatives
on Clayton Ave.
He is a Baker County native but
apparently had'been living in Jack-
sonville.


Mr. Ewing is charged with break-
ing inta van belonging to he
' federal'F agency and making off
with several sniper rifles and a
computer. He is later believed to
have sold the items.
The van was parked in down-
town Jacksonville that February
weekend as part 6f a heightened
security detail deployed during the
game.
His bond was set at $20,000.
The local arrest took place that
evening, and the 300 pound sus-
pect surrendered without incident.

MY SIDE OF


County should ake pa


other. 1ay policies --:.orm


IMPRESSIONS
A -A


As asserted on this opinion page
before by the esteemed Ms. Szanto,
the county has a great opportunity
to correct an inequity in the pay
grade system in effect for employ-
ees of both the County Commis-
sion and the constitutional officers.
It's always been a mish-mash of
starting salaries, merit raises, spe-
cial raises, hidden raises and so on.
The board appears bent on re-
forming the salary grades for em-
ployees directly under it, and
would like to do so with other
workers in offices like the clerk,
tions supervisor.
Starting salaries ought not to
vary from office to office by more
than five percent, for instance. Pay
grades based on years of service
and (hopefully) merit should be
generally uniform (exactly the
same would be nice) in all of coun-
ty government.
Holidays already are uniform;
health insurance plans are the same
for all workers, as is retirement
with the exception of police, judges
and elected officials (that's fodder
for agother.column).
Other observations based on the
summary of a proposed $21 million
budget covering all county depart-
ments published in this edition:
VThe 20.5% increase in the
budget of the Building, Planning
and :Zoning Department may be
high, but it's probably not unrea-
sonable considering that's where
the growth is literally.
With the state, local and federal
regulations attached to building and
land iise, and the demand for in-
spedtions and other field work ac-
companying growth, the bulk of
the work is done in that office.
V It's probably due to much the
same'phenomenon, but the whop-
ping 66% hike in the budget of
county attorney merits close scruti-
ny. You can't do anything without a
lawyer today, it seems, but that's
quite:a bite for one year.
Perhaps the county could inves-
tigate hiring its own counsel or bet-.
ter yqt share one with other coun-


ties. Why not take the tri-county
landfill system a bit further?
In cases where conflicts devel-
op, small counties like Baker,
Bradford and Union could make
other arrangements for "contract"
legal counsel.
But for routine matters like
preparing land use notices, advice
on state statutes governing board


actions, etc. the law doesn't vary
from county to county. Maybe the
attorney shouldn't either.
$21 million, now that's real
money, and since the bulk of it
goes out in salaries and benefits, it
behooves the county to begin plan-
ning now how to best bring all pay
policies under a single umbrella.

My wife is at home sick with the
flu. That is news because she is
never "at home sick." When she is
sick, her body just shuts down and
-she sleeps for 12-18 hours a day. I
guess it's the way in which she
deals with being ill.
I mentioned this to Cathy Bales1
with whom I work at the high
school. /
"Has she been to the doctor?"
asked Cathy.
"She's going today," I respond-
ed.
"Well, you could always do
what my old teacher's aide would
try to do with me when I was sick."
"What was that."
."I'd had pneumonia for weeks
and could barely make it. My aide
took turpentine and whiskey and
rolled it up into little balls about the
size of pills and made me swallow
them."
"And you agreed to this?"
"At that point I was so sick I
would have agreed to just about
anything."
"Well, besides being able to strip
paint by running your hand over it,
what happened?"
"I got better."
"Really?"
"Yes. And I'm also very handy)
refinishing furniture."
"I bet."
Caoiy 's, home remedy made .me
wonder what other last resorts peo-'


ple would go to when modem med-
ical science failed. Believe me, I
am not recommending any of these
home remedies.
Cathy also told me what to do
for pink eye.
"You used to be able to buy that
boric acid solution for pink eye, but
you can't get it anymore. Old tim-
ers would tell you to wash your
eyes with milk."
S"Whole or skim?"
"Whole. But I suppose if it was
a light case, you could use 2%.
However, that does not mean that if
you have brown eyes you can use
chocolate milk."
"My father-in-law always told
me if you had athletes foot, the best
thing to do was urinate on your
foot."
"I've heard that too. It's just a
good idea to take your shoes off be-
fore you do."
"That's a point well taken. He
also had a variety of remedies for
warns."
"Duct tape."
"Yes. A tiny piece of duct tape
cut to the size of the wart is sup-
posed to work. Of course, he also
recommended rubbing it with a
copper penny or a piece of potato."
"Do French fries work?"
"I don't think so, Cathy. I think
the potato has to be raw."
"You know I have all sorts of
knee problems?"
"I'd heard that, Cathy. Kelley
has had knee surgery and her knees
al\% ays hurt."
"aPerhaps she should try the solu-
tion somebody suggested to me."

"Really? I can see that. If it will
loosen up old hinges and squeaky
car doors, it should do the same to
knees. A knee is just another
squeaky hinge. I just hesitate put-
ting petroleum byproducts into my
system. Who knows how they will
react with all that turpentine and
whiskey from the cold medica-

"Duct tape could be used as a
substitute, I was told."
"What's that supposed to do?"
"How should I know? Keep
your leg from falling off, maybe.
It's just another indication that duct
tape is the most useful invention
known to humans."
These remedies aren't just limit-
ed to human beings, I've even
heard a few for dogs.
"Cathy, have you heard about
treating your dog with Sevin dust
to kill fleas?"
"It should work, and if you can
convinceyour dog to roll around in
the garden, she can also stop the
growth of dollar weeds and fen-
nels."
"So that's a good remedy?"
"Yeah, if you don't mind your
dog giving birth to puppies with
two heads and five legs."
I'm sure these are just the tip of
the home remedy iceberg. If you
have any of your own, feel free to
let me know.

county jail...

(From page one)
believe him to be a flight risk, he
decided that Mr. Ibarra's use and
sale of drug$ presented a danger to
the community.
Immediately prior to the bail
hearing, he was arraigned on a sin-
gle count of conspiracy to distrib-
ute. He pled not guilty.
The charge carries a mandatory
minimum of 10 years and up to
life in prison, probation, forfei-
ture of assets connected with the
crime, and up to a $4 million fine,
the judge told Mr. Ibarra, who was
accompanied by his lawyer and an
interpreter.
His case was scheduled to be
heard by District Judge Harvey
Schlesinger during the trial term
beginning November 7.
Operation Sawmill began in late
2003 when a witness tipped off in-
vestigators to the drug ring, finger-
ing Mr. Merrett as the leader. The
unidentified source also named
Michael Ferris of Glen St. Mary.
The witness also gave investi-
gators Mr. Ibarra's name and phone
numbers.
Others identified by name were
Timothy Burnsed of Baxter, and
Aaron Long of Lake Wales, Fla.
The witness said Mr. Burnsed
procured the drug from Mr. Ibarra.
Mr. Long, however, was a sec-
ond source of meth for the ring, al-
though Mr. Ibarra supplied a high-
er quality meth, called "ice."
While in jail, Mr. Merrett pass-
ed instructions for running the op-
eration to his brother John Merrett
of Charlton County, and Ms. Mor-
rison and Wesley Lewis, both of
Macclenny.
He directed them to steer less-
trusted members of the ring away
from Mr. IbMrra to the Central Flor-
ida source. P
Among those on the outs were
Robbie Bumsed of Glen St. Mary
and Stanley Bennett. who was not
charged and not on the list of unin-

Goal: to be Italic


(From page one)
over me and left little floury ten
year old footprints all over her car-
pet."
A couple of years later, Crews
was helping Teague serve elabo-
rate meals for hundreds of people.
He loved the excitement of setting
out food and watching people en-
joy their meals, and at an age when
most kids want to be superheroes
or pro football players he decided
that- being a restaurateur was his
goal in life.
For the next three years, Teague
taught Crews the art of being a
waiter. He served at weddings, re-
tirement parties, anniversaries and
birthdays. All the while, Crews
was experimenting with dishes of
his own.
"I started watching the Food
Network on and off when I was
12," said Crews. "As I got older, I
watched it more and more and got
a lot of my recipes from- it. I'd say
I learned half of what I know from
the Food Network and half from
Janet."
Crews is particularly fond of
Emeril, since he plans to specialize
in Italian cuisine, and Paula Dean
whose down home Savannah food
is similar to what he cooks with
Teague. His dishes tend to fall into
the Southern Italian category. "In
Sicily they cook a lot with white
sauces and herbs, and I particular-
ly like Alfredos."
When he was fifteen, Ms.
Teague allowed Crews to cook for
an event for the first time. "I cook-
ed chicken Alfredo for Suzanne
Rhoden's wedding. I was very ex-
cited, especially since they seemed
to like it so much."
Since then, he has cooked for
numerous occasions and has little
difficulty preparing for as many as
600 people. "You'd think it would
be hard to cook for that many peo-
ple," said Crews. "But Janet pass-
ed something on to me that many
people can't teach you. She never
measures anything. She just seems
to know the right amount of ingre-
dients to put in. She has the ee af-
ter 30 years of cooking and she's
passed that on to me."


He was particularly pleased
with the reception his Alfredo got
from noted author Ellis Amburn,
who called it "quite scrumptious"
and autographed a book for Crews.
As well as working with Teague,
Crews has begun to branch out on
his own, catering dinner parties,
birthdays and smaller events than
the hundreds of people he's used
to preparing. It has been a real
challenge for him.
"I've done about ten dinners so
far and its been a lot of fun. I try to
do more gourmet menus than Jan-
et."
That can be a problem as many
of his potential customers may not
be used to nouvelle cuisine. "I
can't scare them with it; I have to
bring it down to what they would
understand. So I can't say I'm.go-
ing to cook Moroccan lamb I
have to say I'm cooking lamb with
herbs."
Crews prepares simple snacks
to elaborate meals with various
salads, hors d'oeuvres, entrees and
desserts.
His favorite entr6e is anything
that uses his signature Alfredo
sauce. "It's great because you can
add anything to it. You can cook
salmon or trout or make a chicken
Florentine. It's very versatile."
Though desserts are not his spe-
cialty, they are real crowd pleasers.
He does a, fabulous chocolate
cheesecake with shredded dark
chocolate on top. He also makes
his own candy topped with fresh
strawberries or raspberries...
Presentation is a big part of a
Josey Crews meal, and the table he
sets makes the food look like
works of art. Everything is arrang-
ed just so, and the food is garnish-
ed and placed so that it resembles
a photograph 'out of Gourmet mag-
azine. Sometimes it looks almost
too good to eat. Almost.
Preparation and serving are not
the most difficult parts for Crews.
His toughest decision is what to
charge his customers. "Naming a
price is the biggest challenge. Peo-
ple don't understand the amount of
effort that goes into preparing the
meal. They figure they can cook
:for a family of four for $20, so

that's what I should charge. But it
doesn't work that way. The ingre-
dients I use are expensive and ex-
otic and I don't think people un-
derstand that it's not.like cooking
at home."
Crews gives customers an esti-
mate based on the ingredients and
his labor, but it's not an exact sci-
ence. Catering a meal is more like
going out to a fancy restaurant than
cooking for your family. That's
what he wants: the feel, taste and
ambience of a gourmet restaurant,
but in the comfort of someone's
home.
Crews has yet to give his cot-
tage business a name, but prospec-
tive clients can call him at 868-
7349 or email him at joseycrews-
@nefcom.net. In the coming
month, he plans to publish an on-
line portfolio at www.joseycrews.-
com.
In the years to come, we could
'be hearing a lot about chef Josey.
"I'd love to replace Emeril when
he retires."
With his drive and enthusiasm,,
I wouldn't put it past him.

Rare arrest for
street gambling
A Macclenny juvenile was ar-
rested the evening of September
10 and faces a rare criminal charge
for playing a street game of dice.
Deputy Erik Deloach said he
spotted a group of males in the
street on Grissholm St. in the
south city while on routine patrol
just after 9:00 pm.
The youth, who lives nearby,
attempted to flee along with others
but was nabbed with $215 cash.
The officer said he exited his car
when he spotted a pile of cash and
rolling dice on the pavement.
The charge is a second degree
misdemeanor.

A 15-year-old female was ar-

September 7 at the school district's
Therapeutic Day Program for trou-
bled children.
Teacher Patricia Vinzant sum-

Building Official Hathcox will be pouring over Supercenter plans the next few weeks.

Building office gets deluge of plans

for new Supercenter in Macdenny


If you want to gauge how bulk-
ly and intricate the blueprints and'
specifications for the planned Wal-
Mart Supercenter in Macclenny
are, consider this:
It cost nearly $400 to ship them
UPS from a Tulsa, Oklahoma arch-
itect to Macclenny.
Boxes containing the four du-
plicate sets of plans for the 160,-
000 square foot store at South 5th
and Interstate 10, along with books
of specifications, arrived two
weeks ago.
Between now and December,
when Wal-Mart requested building
permits, county Building Official
Robert Hathcox will be paging
through them, noting apparent and
possible violations of myriad-
building and fire safety codes
"We shouldn't have any prob-
lem making that deadline," pre-
dicted Mr. Hathcox. "It's like read-
ing a book; I come in several times
a day and just pick up where I left
oo.-EilgtllI1 get t. ,the end.1'-.
The county's chief building
official keeps legal pads handy to
jot down references he'll need,
when getting back to the owner.
So far, he's filled about two pages.
His time will be compensated
via the estimated $13,231 permit
: fee just for the construction por-
tion of the store, which will re-
place the one on South 6th when it
,opens, probably in late 2006.
Permit fees for plumbing, heat-
ing/air and electrical will be extra.
Wal-Mart closed on the pur-
chase of 25 acres at the undevel-
oped interstate exchange in late
July, paying $2.33 million. So far,
there's been no land preparation
on the tract.

Deadline

Based on what Wal-Mart in-

Flurry of
County deputies participating in
a post-Labor Day heightened pa-
trol looking for drunk drivers re-
ported four arrests during the peri-
od September 6-11.
Three of the drivers are charged
with DUI by failure to submit to a
breathalyzer test after exhibiting
signs of inebriation.
Thomas J. Rumsey, 39, of Mac-
clenny was pulled over just after
2:00 am on September 6 near his
residence off St. Mary's Circle.
Deputy Ben Anderson followed
Mr. Rumsey's 1998 Chevrolet
pickup after spotting it swerving
outside lanes near US 90 and CR
125 in Glen St. Mary.
Mr. Rumsey failed several field
sobriety tests and submitted to the
breath,test at county jail. It showed
his blood-alcohol level about twice
what the state allows.
Larry McAlister, 50,, of St.
George, Ga. refused to take the
test after he was questioned while
purchasing gas in downtown Mac-
clenny.
Deputy Adam Faircloth fol-
lowed Mr. McAlister's vehicle
into the gas station after observing
it on nearby King Drive. He also
found a bag with a dozen empty
beer cans in the vehicle.
Deputy Anderson arrested Mar-
ty A. Parker, 34, of Glen the eve-
ning of September 9 in downtown

Veteran nurse is found

dead off an Osceola road


The preliminary autopsy report
on a Jacksonville nurse found dead
in the Osceola National Forest on
September 8 indicates no evidence
of foul play or suicide.
The body of Dwight D. Ham-
ilton, 48, was found by a game de-
partment officer early that after-
noon inside his parked Chevrolet
S-10 pickup off Forest Road 284
northwest of Olustee.
He had .been reported missing
by his wife two days earlier, and
Sheriff's Investigator Steve Har-
vey said he probably died that af-
ternoon or evening.
Mr. Hamilton was lying in the.
prone position in the driver's hide
seat that had been reclined. The
truck was locked with windows
up, and the keys were found in his


pocket.
He was last seen at St. Vin-
cent's Medical Center about noon
on September 6. A supervisor told
police Mr. Hamilton took the after-
noon off because he was not feel-
ing well.
He was a diabetic. and recently
underwent a routine operation to
insert a stent. He had told co-
workers he felt fatigued.
His wife suggested authorities
search that area of the national for-
est because Mr. Hamilton enjoyed
going there both as a hunter and to
drive in the woods.
The area where he was found is
off CR 250 east of the Columbia
County line.
Mr. Hamilton had been em-
ployed at the hospital for 24 years,
according to the investigator.

City en eer blasts pla


for utility costs at Blair units


Macclenny's engineer Tuesday.
night belligerent attacked a pro-
posal under which a developer in-
stalls sewer and water utility\ lines,,
then turns them over to the cit\ af-
ter he recoups his cost trom subse-
quent hookups.
It's an arrangement similar to
the one Macclenny officials struck
with Wal-Mart for its Supercenter
to be build on CR 228 outside the,
city limits.
However, an obstinate and in-
sistent Frank Darabi loudly de-
clared at the cit\ commission
meeting. "'You can't do it... the
Public Service Commission won't
let 'ou do that."
Blair Nurserie-s' d-. cloper
Charles Chupp proposes to divide
the cost of his utilities project
among the first 500 homes that tap,
into the line in the proposed devel-
opment on SR 121 south of Mac-
clenn\.
Those homes would come from
other developments, not Blair
Nurseries, that are likely\ to build
near the south SR 121 corridor.
Blair Nurseries plans 5,7 units,.
200 of which are multi-familI
homes, and a 20.,000-square-foot
shopping center on 200 acres. It's
located along the west side of SR
121 between Bobb\ Sapp Road
and Mud Lake Road. The property
extends west to near CR 125.
City utilities are ke\ to the de-
velopment being appro ed after
lingering for nearly a \ear and a
half, about three times the/usual'
time frame.
Mr. Darabi said the plan allows ,
the developer "'to gouge e~ er\-
body... $13.000."
Tony Robbins, w ho represents
Mr. Chupp, said the cost per house
is likely to be closer to $9400 than
$13,000, which %\as a round-num-
ber estimate that somehow emerg-
ed during discussions.
The project, which Mr. Chupp


estimates ,a ill cost about $4.7 mil-
lion, includes construction of a
newA water plant and tapping into
.the existin swi\er line at nearby
Northeast Florida State Hospital,
adding lift nationss and upgrading
NEFSH's pump-..
Dividing the $4.7 million by
500 results in tfes of $94u.).
"The math doesn't work," Mr.
Darabi said w. without elaborating.- .
'You can't sell water at $13,-
000. If you can, why don't .e
('Macclnn,' raise our impact fee
to $13.1 i11ii-1 '"
He said the cit\ needs to im-
prose its utilities infrastructure -
particularl\ undersized water pipes
.' .- 'l -..* .I f '" i 'n i trie '* t'c
-.in t .d ,J.l JJdif ii -,in.J ine, i, er ,
plant;
The board asked him to meet
. '. ith Mr Robbins; Mr. Chupp and
perhaps the city attorneN, along
with Commissioner Phil Rhoden
to discuss Blair Nurseries' propos-

)u ma\ no t v.anit ne in-
\ol'.ed in this." he replied, saying
he w wasn't interested in discussing
the matter.
Atler some cajoling from the
commissioners, ho. e\ er, he re-
lented. ..
"I'll meet '.. ith them but it's not
going to resol e this issue.
Earlier in the meeting. Mr.
Darabi, an engineering consultant,
presented the results of a stud\ he
did for the board.
He recommended that the cit\
implement a police\ requiring de-
\elopers to pa\ upfroni for utility\
lines they need.
"It's not fair for the city to bor-
row\ money build it and wait for
mon \ to come in. ii
De\ elopers would pay a per-
unit fee, and get a credit for impact
fees they would hae to pa\.
In other matters, city commis-
sioners:

Agreed to pa\ $60.000 plus
closing costs for the property lo-
cated behind the fire station and
Council on Aging building.

the house that currently sits on the
site and perhaps use its quarter
acre tor dow ntow n parking.

Budget deliberation spurs discussion of

jail location and other public space topics


THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS Thursday, September 15, 2005 Page Seven

Arrested after he returns to

the scene of an earlier spat


BY NANCY SZANTO
News Editor
Budget workshops by the Baker
County Commission this year in-
cluded much discussion of items
not directly affecting setting the-
new spending plan:
Where to locate a new jail.
Sheriff Joey Dobson still favors
property on US 90 east near the.
Enterprise East industrial site and
Wal-Mart Distribution WVarehouse.
He suggested the commission
would have better luck with a jury
setting land value in a condemna-
tion process against an unwilling
seller on timber land than in forc-
ing people from their homes to
take land near the current jail.
The current fairgrounds has also
been proposed as a site, but some
Fair Association members do not
favor moving that facility to the St.
Mary's Shoals Park. Also, Com-
missioner Mark Hartley said the
fairgrounds property is "too valu-
able" to use for a jail.
The prosecutor and public de-
fender departments are again seek-
ing additional office space, and the
commission talked briefly about
possibilities: converting the jail if
a new one is built; building on the
half block east of the courthouse;
the old health department on South
Sixth Street if the latest purchase
proposal falls through.
Increasing use of the driver's
license service at the County An-
nex. Tax Collector Gene Harvey is


hiring aa second clerk; although
commissioners grumbled that
means the service is mostly just
paying for itself rather than gen-
erating extra revenue.
"But before you were providing
a building and utilities, and getting
nothing back from it, so the coun-
ty's costs have been cut," Mr. Har-
vey reasoned.
Mr. Harvey and Property Ap-
praiser Tim Sweat may be asked to
submit their budgets to the com-
mission before sending them to the
Florida Department of Revenue.
The DOR deadlines fall in June
and July, well before the commis-
sion starts workshops. However, if
the county board then requests
changes, the state must approve
amendments for the two constitu-
tional officers.
Mr. Sweat noted his staff has
been unable to keep up with re-
checking each land parcel at least
every three years for both taxable.
value and for special assessments.
He plans more cross-training of
employees so they can substitute
for each other.
Mr. Sweat also hopes to have
county land records on'the Internet
"soon," which he says will de-
crease the number of callers and
visitors to the office. "We get calls
for this all the time," he said.
Clerk of Courts Al Fraser not-
ed elected officials in other coun-
ties submit only a request for fund-
ing rather than the full line item


listing the local commission has
always required.
In a debate over new dump-
trucks for the road department,
Commissioner Mark Hartley said
he would rather see the money us-
ed for paving. However, Commis-
sioner Gordon Crews pointed out
the trucks would be needed to haul
limerock for new roadbeds, a pro-
jected savings of up to 60% over
having a' contractor do the pre-
paving preparation.
An ordinance is being prepar-
ed to rescind electric franchise re-
bates to several large power users.
The commission temporarily
tabled a plan for portable comput-
ers for each board member. How-
ever, they likely will be purchased
or leased before the fall 2006 bud-
get workshops,'so board members
can follow as finance officer Deb-
bie Perryman types in changes un-
der discussion.
Council on Aging director
Mary Baxia and finance officer
Kacie Kennedy were able to reas-
sure the commission they now
have a firm gasp of the agency's


lag



II


finances.
"We were working from infor-
mation that was in place before,
and have probably spent 100 hours
between us, and can now tell to the
penny how much money is spent
for each program," Ms. Kennedy
said.
SMs. Baxla asked for a memo
to the Area Agency on Aging, stat-
ing thecommission's expectation
that home delivered lunches will
be prepared at the Macclenny Se-
nior Center, rather than prepackag-
ed frozen dinners. In a series of
meetings earlier this year, the
boards compromised for three hot
meals and two frozen to be deliv-
ered each week.

Unusual rescue in town

where deputies patrolled


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Siaff
POPLARVILLE, Miss. One
of the most unusual stories con-
nected with Hurricane Katrina oc-
curred in this small town where
rescue workers reportedly extract-
ed an 85-year-old man buried up
to his neck in a local field.
, What made it especially bizarre,
however, is that the elderly man
was from Waveland, a town miles
away, and couldn't recall for res-
cuers, hospital workers or shelter
volunteers how he got to all the
way to Poplarville, according to
Shirley Wiltshire, from the local
First Baptist Church, %which ran the
shelter.
She didn't. know the man's
name, but knew the story well.
"It was in Archers' pasture the
night of the storm. Their son was
checking on them, and was walk-
ing back to his house through the
pasture when he saw a bald head
sticking up out of the ground."
Locals think the man must have
stepped into a small sinkhole,


which was then filled by mud
from the heavy rain and wind.
Rescuers dug him out and had
him checked by medical person-
nel, who found him relatively un-
scathed. They took him to the shel-
ter.
Ms. Wiltshire said he appeared
to suffer from symptoms similar to
those o .AJzhijmer's disease, andijiL
was a day or two before he XwasU
able to tell anyone who he was and
where he was from.
She said shelter volunteers tried
unsuccessfully for a couple of
da\s to reach someone in Wave-
land, but eventually were able to
contact a family member.
Mark Hines. owner of a local
lumber supply company, said Sept
3 that the man had been returned
to Waveland.
Ms. Wiltshire said the man "just
talked, talked, talked" while at the
shelter.
"He said he liked to clean out
the refrigerator, so I asked him if
he would help me do mine.
"He said. 'I'm 85-years-old, I
don't need another woman."

Another dose game, another loss


as Wildcats fallto Eastside Rams


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Sports
For the last 47:30 of its game
against Gainesville Eastside Fri-
day, Baker County outscored the
Rams 9-8.
In the second half, the Wildcats'
defense shut out the home team,
including blocking a short field
goal attempt to get the ball back
for a potential game-winning drive.
However, it was a quick strike
in the opening moments that put
the Cats in a.hole they couldn't
climb out of.
The Rams, after taking the op-
ening kickoff, hit a 49-yard touch-
down pass just 29 seconds into the
game to take a 6-0 lead.
In the second quarter, they scor-
ed another touchdown and added a
two-point conversion. :
The Wildcats responded with a
field goal to close within 14-3 at
the half.
It was a hard-hitting, but sloppy
game for both teams they com-
bined for seven turnovers and well
over 100 yards in penalties. After
scoring the first touchdown, East-
side (1-1) had to kick-off three
times because they were offside on
the first two attempts.
"We had a sluggish first half,"
coach Carl West said. "But our de-
fense played great in the second
half.
"On offense, we moved the ball
but couldn't put it in."
Neither team scored in the third
quarter, but early in the fourth the
Cats mounted a long drive that
started at their 13 and ended in the
Rams' red zone.
"We were inside the 10, but did-
n't score," West said. "We went for
the touchdown, but didn't make it."
With just under eight minutes to
go, Dontay Johnson ran for a
touchdown. The two-point attempt
failed, leaving the score 14-9.
For the game, Johnson gained
50 yards on 12 carries.
Luscious Lee led the team in
rushing with,75.yards on. 13:car- .
ries.
Quarterback Carlos Holton, play-
ing his first game since being nam-
ed the permanent starter, complet--
ed six passes out of 22 attempts
for 69 yards. He was intercepted
once and sacked five times.
"Carlos is getting better," West
said. "He needs to improve his


reads and get rid of the ball faster."
Wide receiver Gary .Dugger
caught three balls for 52 yards.
Down by 5 with several min-
utes left, Baker needed a stop, but
the Rams (1-1) drove the ball
down the field, chewing up the
clock.
"We really buckled down,"
Eastside coach Kent Johnson told
The Gainesville Sun. "That's where
our conditioning paid off up front.
We were able to win in the trench-
es there. If they had been able to
stop us and get the ball back in
good field position, it could have
been real nail-biter."
SThe Rams, however, were uh-
able to score after driving to Bak-
er's five-yard line. There, the Cats'
defense stiffened, forcing a field
goal attempt that was blocked by
Gar Fraser.
With just under three minutes
: and 95 yards to go, the Cats \were
able to get one first down before
turning the ball over on downs.


It was the third straight game
they had an opportunity to pull out
a win, but.the third straight time
they came up short.
;Fortunately for the Cats, none
of the losses were to district oppo-
nents.
,:"We would like to win. every
game, but you've got to win the
key games," West said.
He recalled back in his days
playing for Baker High, when the
Cats beat St. Augustine, a team
that finished the season 4-6.
But because they won their dis-
trict games, they were able to ad-
vance in the playoffs, making it to
the state semifinals before losing. .
The Cats' first district game is
Friday at home against Raines (3-
0), a team West said is "very, very
talented... with speed, size and ath-
leticisin."
"We'll be a huge underdog and
will have to play a near perfect
game to beat them."
The game begins at 7:30 pm in
Memorial Stadium.

Charged

with felony

pot offense
Two county deputies had to
physically subdue a suspect while
arresting him off South Boulevard
Sin Macclenny early on September
11 for felony possession of mari-
juana.
Brandon M. Glover. 22. of Mac-
clenn\ allegedly ran at Deputy
Sgt. James Nickles %when he ar-
rived on the scene to assist Deputy
Erik Deloach. He struggled as the
officers took him to the ground
attempting to handcuff him.
The sheriff's department had
been asked to patrol the area of
south Macclenny because of drug-
related activity and loitering. De-
puty Deloach said he stopped to
question the suspect when he spot-
'ted him standing in a dri\vewvay
about 2:20 am.
The officers found small bags
of pot inside a larger one while
doing a pat-down search on Mr.
Glover. That resulted in the charge
of possession with intent to sell.
He faces another felon) count
for resisting police with violence.
and a misdemeanor for loitering.
Mr. Glover also had $140 cash.
In another arrest in the same
neighborhood about two hours
earlier, Deput) Adam Faircloth
charged Alex Wilcox. 53, of Mac-
clenn\ with loitering and disorder-
1) intoxication.
The officer also found a fishing
pole near \ here the arrest took
place on Quail Lane, and said Mr.
Wilcox had been carry ing it.
He denied stealing it and the
pole \\as returned to the ow ner,
who declined to seek criminal
charges.

September, National Grandpar-
ents' Month, has.the COA staff and
seniors involved in many special
events to honor grandparents and to
promote intergenerational activities
and understanding.
Grandparents have so much to
Sell us, so much to offer, but so of-
ten grandchildren don't even know
their grandparents' full names.
Baker County seniors will have an
opportunity this month to prepare a
written record for their grandchil-
dren, other family members or
friends. Mary Kelleher, volunteer
site activities assistant, will help se-
niors write mini-autobiographies ti-
tled, All About Me.
This booklet will provide some
basic genealogical data, a brief his-
tory, and hopefully some insight in-
to the character and values of the
individual senior. Ms. Kelleher's
classes for site participants will be
in 3 sessions, began September 14.
A separate class for the seniors who
do not attend the senior center will
be announced. All materials for the
class will be provided, but seniors
are asked to bring along any docu-
mentation they may have like date
of birth, marriage, birth of children, etc.
Meals at the Senior Center are
provided for seniors 60 years or
older through funding, local match
and client contributions. Seniors
aren't charged but are asked to con-
tribute as much as they can toward
the cost of the meal, which aver-
ages under $5.
Anna Bolduc, long time cook
for the Council on Aging, will be
leaving soon. to spend more time
with her children and grand chil-
dren.
Ms. Anna will be greatly missed,
not just as the COA cook but as
someone who has taken very spe-
cial care of so many since the COA
meals program was established.
For those who love her lemon pies,
she has agreed to stay on until after
the fair.
A huge welcome to Bert Kramer
and Larry and Mary Pregler, the
newest additions to the home deliv-
ered meals volunteer team.

GED center in

Sanderson has

graduated six

A satellite GED program in
south Sanderson at the Christian
Revival Center recently opened.
Since December, six students have
graduated with their diploma.
One of those students was He-.
len Bennett. She was one of seven
children born in Apopka, Fla. At
13, Helen's father died of cancer
and she started work as a babysit-
ter to help support the family.
Three years later, Helen quit
school to work at a plant nursery
for 25o an hour.
In March of 2004, she heard
about the GED program and began
a 13-month long journey toward
her diploma. After taking the test
she excitedly called her teacher,
DuWayne Bridges to tell him she
had passed.
If you are interested in the GED
program, call Tammy Moore at
259-0407. For the Sanderson pro-
gram call DuWayne Bridges at
(386) 965-0127.
