BY MICHAEL RINKER
Macclenny officials are poised
to enact an impact fee of $2777,
which would exceed the combined
fees contemplated by the county
and the school district.
City commissioners at their
meeting Tuesday accepted recom-
mendations contained in a study by
consultant Frank Darabi of
They did not formally approve
the fees because the ordinance
must be advertised for public hear-
ing and final vote.
Commissioners asked city attor-
ney Frank Maloney to consult with
Mr. Darabi and write a draft ordi-
nance as soon as possible.
They scheduled a special meet-
ing for October 25.
Impact fees are levied on new
construction, and are intended to
help pay for additional roads,
schools, police and fire services, to
There are rules governing when,
where and how much can be spent,
and the fees must be justifiable,
whici is.hc inient of Mr. Darabi's
He said he conducted the impact
fee study for the city, county and
Glen St. Mary, and recommended
identical amounts for each. The
school board hired its own consul-
The county, however, decided to
forego his suggestion, and has ten-
tatively approved a fee of $1500.
The school board's consultant,
Urbanomics Inc.,.said the district
could justify a fee of up to $5068.
While the board has yet to formally
announce the amount, it's likely to
propose a $1000 fee. The county
must enact the school portion of the
ordinance because the board is not
empowered to pass laws.
Mr. Darabi's recommendation of
$2777 was broken down into five
different categories $880 for
transportation, $704 for law en-
forcement, $300 for emergency
management, $678 for fire service
and $215 for recreation.
He arrived at each amount by:
determining what would be
needed in each category for in-
stance, fire services would require
a new vehicle and station;
figuring the cost (in this exam-
ple, about $4 million);
dividing the cost by the pro-
jected number of building permits
SBy contrast, the county's $1500
fee is all for transportation; the
school board's is obviously for ed-
ucation needs, such as new schools
City officials generally agreed
with the recommended amount for
each category except for trans-

muses. "I first got interested back
about 1963 when I built a log cab-
in out on the Eastern Shore (in
Maryland). In all, I've built three
houses like that."
The Passwaters moved to Mac-

the harsh Chesapeake winters.

For a time in the 1990s, Sonny
and his pal and neighbor Bob
Prentice kicked around in the con-
struction business, but that has
slacked off of late.
Health problems have kept Son-
ny out of the wood shop'behind
his residence more recently', but
normally his passion keeps him
occupied 4-5 hours daily.
"Sometimes I spend a few hours
in the afternoon and I might go
back after dinner. Sometimes it de-'
pends on when the beer runs out,"
he notes with a grin.
Sonny expects to return to the
old routine before long, but says
he's reluctant to launch a business
turning out things like hand-craft-
ed spice cabinets.
. "T'm sure there's a demand for
them, but I'm not sure you can
charge what they're really worth in
time and materials. I'd hate to
think I had to get this or that much

Be honest, haven't you mis-
spelled the name of your home-
town or even your own name at
one time or another?
I thought so.
Now, after 20 years in journal-
ism, I've made my first mistake...
,You know, nowadays, nobody
wants to accept responsibility when
things go wrong.
tI'm going to change that. Right
here. Right now.
I'm taking responsibility... for
finding someone else to blame.
Starting at the top, it's probably
George Bush's fault. After all, he's-
ultimately in charge of what goes
on in this country.
And as a Democrat, I feel com-
fortable blaming him for every-
thing that goes wrong, even when
it's not his fault. Especially when
it's not his fault.
Besides, his brother Jeb has been

"The school district's leader-
ship, including the superintendent
and other central office administra-
tors along with building based
administrators, deserve commenda-
tion for studying this issue at this
point in time."
"The creative and proactive
effort administrators are making
toward the improvement of the
teacher's knowledge and skill in
addressing behavior issues and
overall classroom management is
to be commended."
Some of the efforts include:
V The excellent and important
CHAMPS training provided to the
middle school personnel this past
/ The training provided this past
summer at the high school for
teachers to improve their classroom
management skills and knowledge
of effective intervention strategies
to use when students misbehave.
V Use of teacher mentors con-
sisting of more experienced and
skilled veteran teachers to help
young and developing teachers in
structuring and managing their
classrooms and effectively re-
sponding to non-academic student
needs and occasional misbehavior.
These are just a few of the posi-
tive steps made in recent months
and years to improve the discipline

Ms. Covin chosen one
of 'Twelve Who Care'
Mary Covin of Macclenny was honored the evening of January 29 as
one of "Twelve Who Care" by WTLV Channel 12 in Jacksonville. A
dozen people from the station's viewing area are recognized each year.
for stellar work as volunteers.
Ms. Covin, a native of Iowa, has been delivering meals to the elder-
ly in this area since shortly after moving to Baker County with her hus-
band Lee in 1982. She and other honorees %were feted at a reception and
ceremony at the Ritz Theater in the historic LaVilla section of down-
town Jacksonville. She received an engraved flat crystal teardrop
award, and was introduced by Channel 12 reporter Charlene Shirk, who
earlier did a brief biographical sketch of her.
The entire ceremony \i ill be televised October 22.
Ms. Co in \ras nominated for the honor by Tonnie Blakely, former
director for the Baker County Council on Aging and her former super-
visor. The honoree began delivering food at the behest of the late Louise
Davis, a longtime patron of the Council and friend of Ms. Covin's, late
"They needed drivers and it kind of started piecemeal from there,"
explained the normally shy and reserved Ms. Covin. who also works
part time at the Emily Taber Library. "I've met an awful lot of wonder-
ful people over the years. It's been very worth while for me."
Ms. Shirk told the audience how the honoree often goes out of her
way to help the elderly, like seeing to the health of their pets. Once, she
made a deal with a veterinarian and arranged for the sterilization of ten
cats. She also routinely pays for pet medicines.
Recalling her brief acceptance speech that e ening, she said. "Some
of them (award winners) had pages of prepared remarks. Mine weren't
very long; I just kind of got up there and said 'Gosh!"'
SMs. Covin said she learned volunteering from her parents in Pacific
Junction, lo\wa. Here in Baker County, she has also been a longtime vol[
unteer for the county fair organization.
She and Lee. a Baker County native, met while both wereArmy offi-
cers in the 1970s. They %\ed while still in the service and mo\ed here
two years later.

A Who's Who of Baker Coun-
ty officialdom turned out October
6 for a meeting with state law-
makers to air their hopes, dreams
and pleas for the upcoming leg-
Senator Nancy Argenziano and
Representative Aaron Bean, also
known as the Baker County leg-
islative delegation, held court in
the county commission chambers.
Sheriff Joey Dobson made his
case for a bill that would protect
the jobs of deputies and other de-
partment employees when new
sheriffs take office.
Both legislators were on board
with the plan, and simply dis-
cussed a few details with the sher-
iff on how the bill will be worded
when introduced at the 2006 ses-
sion, which begins in March.
Sen. Argenziano affirmed that
there are no deputies opposed to
the bill, then told Sheriff Dobson
she'll send him a final version be-
fore it is submitted to bill drafting.
Associate School Superinten-
dent Glenn McKendree told the
delegation that state requirements
of 300 hours for summer pre-K is
asking a lot of four-year-old chil-
Sen Argenziano agreed and
said she's been hearing similar
sentiments across the state.
.They also talked about the Jes-
sica Lunsford Act, which requires
criminal background checks for
individuals who will have contact '
with school children.
Mr. McKendree said the cost
of conducting the checks are a
burden, especially on small, rural
school districts like Baker County.
He said asking volunteers to
pay for the investigations would
"destroy our volunteer program."

The senator and Mr. Mc-
Kendree disagreed on how much
the background checks cost.
"Schools can afford $36," she
said, contradicting his estimate of
She expressed skepticism that
it was a financial burden on
school districts, and noted that she
would want to see the budget of
any district that said it was. The
senator asserted that she could
find items that are "a lesser priori-
ty than protecting children."
Mr. McKendree retorted, "You're
welcome to look at ours."
The senator then said, "Don't
take it offensively."
Commissioner Alex Robinson
asked that legislators consider
cost-based reimbursement for
county health departments.
"They're codning to s make
(up the shortfall, and we can't do
it," he said.
The commissioner also talked
about the need for a library grant,
funding for small county jails and
courthouses,-and continuing fund-
ing for solid waste removal.
.He also mentioned the need for
replacing the dilapidated Council
on Aging building.
"I can't get our senior citizens
a senior center, then see other
parts of the state get buildings... it
makes, me wonder what's going
on," he said.
Rep. Bean commended Baker

Some responses to
grief aren t Christian
^ ... .. .^ .." .
Grief is one of the greatest
temptations the Christian can face.
Losing a loved one challenges us
in so many areas; we can be caught
in whirlpool of emotion sweeping
us further from our Christian faith
before we are even fully aware.
Loss brings with it a physical
component similar to shock. It is a
God-given blessing making it pos-
sible for us to get through the, first
few days. We function in a type of
daze, eating, drinking, and making
conversation with those who come
to share the grief. We make the
final arrangements. This is normal
and natural, but after a few days
the shock begins to wear off and
the pain sets in. This is where the
temptations begin for the Christian.
I The first temptation involves
how we behave in our loss. Some
Christians are taught, "If you are a
true Christian, you won't cry." No-
thing could be further from the
Our Lord Jesus, the author of
life and death, the one who raised
people from the dead with a spo-
ken word, wept at the tomb of his
dear friend Lazarus. He already
knew he would raise Lazarus. but
still he paused to express his grief
in tears. Tears are another God-
given blessing enabling us to start..
the healing process.
Sometimes Christians are
taught, "You have to be strong for
others around you. You can't break
down." This is anything but true.
The first problem hits when \we
believe showing our grief is
"breaking down." Grief emotions
are not the same thing as "having a
nervous breakdown." Cry ing.
anger, fainting, irritability, shak-
ing. sometimes even laughing and
cutting up can be a natural part of
to get your

Mommy. Daddy & Family
the grieving process. They don't
usually require medication, al-
though often the first thing our
culture offers is some kind of pill.
The second assumption in the
statement above is equally false.
Somehow our culture has come to
believe that showing our grief with
the grieving makes their grief
worse. Nothing can do that, their
loss is already their loss and seeing
a comforter cry isn't going to send
them into a greater tailspin. Jesus
didn't stop crying because "he had
to be strong" for Martha and Mary.
Where on earth did the Stoics
come up with these ideas, and why
on earth did we adopt them? They
Another great temptation is to
dwell on the loss long after the
healthy period of mourning has
past. The individual seems to
become locked in a perpetual
prison, perhaps believing if they'
stop focusing, on the individual
they somehow didn't care enough
or the person will really be gone.
The Christian faith is about life.
For the Christian, death is mere-
ly the doorway to an eternal life
with God. If our loved one was a
Christian, then he or she has left
behind all suffering and celebrates
a life indescribable now in the
presence of full life. For us to con-
tinue focusing on their earthly
time keeps us from celebrating
One of the beautiful passages of
scripture reminds us death has.
been swallo%,ed up in victory: "0,
death where is thy sting? O grave
where is thy victory? The sting of
death is sin, and the strength of sin
is the law. But thanks be to God, "
which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ." (I
The temptation will always be
present for the Christian to forget
this truth, but Jesus continues to
give the victor\ as we turn over
our grief to Him.

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD
Wildcat players appear reflective, and reflected, as they stand on the swampy sidelines at Lake Butler.
Union launches ground attack
overruns Baker County defense
Tigers rush for 347 yards in 41-21 win over winless Wildcats
BY MICHAEL RINKER
If you're looking for a silver
lining in Baker County High's
seventh straight loss, you can find
The Cats scored a season-high
The passing game improved.
And more importantly to coach
Carl West, the players hung tough
despite coming off a thrashing at
the hands of Andrew Jackson, de-
spite a winless season, and despite
being down on the road against a
Union County squad that's ranked
sixth in :he state.
Despite those positi es, how-
ever, the Wildcats lost 41-21 to
the Tigers, dropping their record
to 0-7. .
"\We had to play near perfect to
beat them," West said. "But I was
pleased with the effort. The line
blocked well, w e mo\ed the ball
and had some opportunities.
"It wasn't like the Jackson
game," he added, referring to the
previous week's 48-6 loss to the
Fighting Tigers, a game that be-
lieve it or not wasn'tt as close as
the score might indicate.
Against Union County, the
Cats got a solid performance from
quarterback Craig Yarborough,
\\ho completed 11 passes in 33 at-
tempts for 118 yards. He three '
t\Io touchdowns and two inter-

and a touchdown.

with Chris Crews'" 20-\ ird touch-
down grab drev. the Cats within
34-21 in the fourth quarter, but
;any hopes of a comeback \were
wiped out by a long touchdown n
run from Union County's C.J.
Spiller, who rushed for 174
yards, is once of the best running
backs in the state, a major college
prospect, according to West.
'"We knew it would be tough to,
stop him. \\e hoped to contain
him... but \we didn't contain him."
As a team, the Tigers gained
347 yards on the ground, while
the Cats ran for just 117.
Jonathan Trippett ran for 37
yards on eight carries; Lucious
Lee 35 on eight.

After a miserably depressing
loss to Denver the previous week
in which they couldn't do anything
right, the real team showed up for
the nationally televised game and
brought their A game.
The defense harassed Carson
Palmer, the hottest quarterback in
the NFL. Palmer got some com-
pletions but never easily. The
Jaguars defense, which was play-
ing with an intensity lacking
against the Broncos, did a good
job of shutting dow n the running
game and harassing the Heisman
winner from USC.
The offense, which was non-ex-
istent against the Broncos, show ed
up to play. Fred Taylor was at his
best in front of the full house at
Alltel Stadium and the millions in
the ESPN audience. He danced
around defenders and powered his
way through others on.his way to
132 yards. He could have been
closer to 200 if two long runs had-
n't been called back because of
Byron Leftwich looked sharp,
though he still lacks touch on the
ball. He had a lot of passes
dropped because of the sheer ve-
locity at which he throws even the
short ball. Catching a Leftwich
pass is similar to catching a Roger
Clemons pitch without a glove.
You come back to the huddle won-
dering whether you shouldn't have

but a fumble recovery sealed the
game for the Jaguars.
It was a must-win game for
Jacksonville. They are convinced
