Audit chides district for failing to monitor contractors


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
State auditors say that Baker
County School District officials
failed to properly monitor contracts
and payments for subcontractors dur-
ing construction of the $8 million
kindergarten/pre-k center.
The Auditor General's report, re-
leased November 29, also scolds
the district for not providing proof
that public funds are adequately
protected, lax budgetary controls,
and failure to make timely deposits
of student fees.
The latter problem was the only
finding in last year's audit report.
School Superintendent Paula


Barton characterized the audit as
"overall a good report."
"With a $40 million budget, if
they find a couple odd problems,
you're doing pretty good," she said
-Monday.
The report covers the 2004-05
fiscal year, which ended June 30.
During that period, the district
spent $4 million on the kinder-
garten/pre-k center.
In February of that year, the
school board approved construction
of the early education complex it
contains five buildings, including
38 classrooms, located between the
school district offices and Baker
County Middle School hoping to


see it substantially completed by
the beginning of the school year.
Two buildings were ready, the rest
were finished in October.
The guaranteed maximum price
for building the complex was $8
million. Peter R. Brown Construc-
tion Inc., of Tallahassee, was the
contractor.
The audit report said the district
failed to provide proof that its staff
participated in bid openings oi
monitored payments to subcontrac-
tors.
"In the absence of ... document-
ed monitoring of the subcontractor
bid process and payments to the
subcontractors, the District has lim-


ited assurance that subcontracts
were awarded at the lowest avail-
able price or that subcontractors
were properly paid," the 57-page
report noted.
In the district's official response
to the report, Ms. Barton wrote No-
vember 7 that "procedures will be
implemented to monitor the sub-
contractor selection process... and
to make sure that payments... are
consistent with submitted bid
prices."
In the other findings by the audi-
tors, the report said:
The district failed to promptly
deposit fees from pre-k early inter-
vention and extended day care.


Those programs brought in about
$176,000 in the 2004-05 fiscal year.
In March, 176 of 411 receipts
were held five to 23 days before be-
ing deposited.
Last year's audit found the same
problem.
According to Ms. Barton's re-
sponse, the district "will continue to
improve the timeliness of deposit"
of program fees.
The district spent more money
than was budgeted for certain cate-
gories without waiting until after
the school board passed budget
amendments.
Overall, $169,323 was prema-
turely spent in three categories in


the general fund and one in food
service.
Ms. Barton wrote that the district
"will make every effort to ensure
that budget amendments are Board
approved in a timely manner."
SThe district failed to maintain
proper paperwork for its deposit ac-
counts.
Basically, each account must be
identified by the district and ac-
knowledged by receipt from the fi-
nancial institution. The district must
confirm the information each year
and submit a "public depositor re-
port" to the state.
SMs. Barton said the report has
been submitted.

Seized


pit bulls


are stolen


at pound

In abused condition

Two days after 2.6 abused and
Neglected dogs were retrieved from
an abandoned house in Olustee,
someone broke into the county's
animal control facility and stole 1(1
of them.
NMost, if not all, were pit bull-
dogs, apparently trained to fight.
One of the dogs had several lac-
erations on its legs and a five-inch
hole in its hip. Many others were so
malnourished that officers could
see their ribs and hip bones pro-
truding.
Five dogs had weights tied to
their necks, preventing them from
lifting their heads.
Deputy Thomas Dyal, who met
the county's animal control officer
Georgia Monfort at the property
November 30, also saw "a contrap-
tion that was made to tie two sepa-
rate dogs around the neck while
they fought."
.In addition, they found a rac-
coon in a cage at the end of a tread-
mill where the dogs would be
chained and made to run as though
chasing the animal.
Ms. Monfort discovered the
dogs white responding to a com-
plaint about a bulldog running
loose, attacking other dogs in the
neighborhood.
A man who lives near the house
on Cason Road told police that
Carlos Ford owns the dogs.
Rufus Dixon said Mr. Ford, 31,
would come by the property each
.week to feed and walk the dogs.
When officers went there, how-
ever, most of the dogs had no food
or water.
Police were unable to immedi-
ately contact Mr. Ford, who lives in
Macclenny but works in Starke as a
hair stylist, but identified him as a
suspect and filed 15 counts of ani-
mal cruelty against him with the
state attorney's office.
Chief Investigator Chuck Bran-
nan said Tuesday there are two or
three other potential suspects.
All those contacted by police de-
nied involvement.
Two days after the dogs were
confiscated, Christina Thomas ar-
rived for work at the animal control
kennels and found the gate had
been knocked down, apparently by
a truck.
Once inside, burglars cut a fence
to gain access to the dogs. They
used carriers to take 11 dogs out a
door on the west end of the build-
ing and load them tcuo h'. -echit.e.
Ms. Thomas told police that
'. he. she was i.-s- cing be ,.
from Olustee, she was t foUa.wa- rD&

Local government


bodies went their


on, way on fees


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Commentary

Several months ago, when the
'idea of impact'fees was shiny and
new, I wrote a column wondering,
howlocal officials would act in the:
Sface of great temptation. .
Impact fees might seem like free
money. They are a tax of sorts, but
without the, political fallout because
they fall largely on taxpayers not
yet here.
And that's because the fees are
intended to make grow th that is,
new people pay for their impact,
on Baker County. We'll need more
and better roads, additional police
and fire protection, new schools.
etc.
In that column, I may have re-
ferred to this tax in cognito as an.
"impact feest." (If that's not exactly
%what I said, too bad. It's late and I
don't feel like checking.)
I wondered how our local offi-
cials would approach this fiscal
smorgasbord.
A cynical person would assume
,that everyone %would absolutely) pig
out.-
And to a small degree that hap-
* opened, but most of the stuff that oc-
curred was much more fun.
We had Macclenn\ citi officials
questioning the collective manhood
of countN commissioners.
The city fathers couldn't under-
stand %why their rural brothers
wouldn't approve a higher impact
fee for the schools.
As if fiscal restraint is a sign of
weakness.
Later, howeTer, at a commission
meeting, Nlacclenn) Ma)or Gary
Dopson publicly apologized for the
cit '"s lck,tf decorum.
Commissioner Fred Raulerson
said without irony that the apol-
ogy proved city officials' to be real
men.
Then we had the county com-
mission passing an impact fee for
itself and Glen St. Mar\.
It %'as a thoughtful act. Appar-
ently the\ were tr ing to sa% e Glen
officials the time and aggravation
of passing their own law\.
But perhaps they should have
asked if it \\as OK with the Glen
St. Marvians.

It wasn't.
Last week, town leaders started
to look into their own impact fee,
and refused to sign an interlocal
agreement the commissioners had
approved between the two.
Earlier this year, the commis-
sion was indeed considering a big
bite of the impact fee falafel, but
were browbeaten by a horde of
Baker County residents concerned
that their children couldn't afford.
to build homes because of high
impact fees.
The original figures kicked
around by the commission and the
school board \were well over $7000
per residence.
As we'vee been told,'the com-
missioners are a little lo' on
testosterone, so they capitulated,
lowering the count\ fee to $1500
and encouraging the school district
to do likewise.
On the other hand, the real men.
on the Macclenn\ city commission
grabbed a big leg of fried impact
fee and stuffed their faces.
Their consultant, Frank Darabi,
recommended the\ charge $"777.
No way, they replied We'll take
$3000.
And speaking of Mr. Dirabi, he
said he did an impact fee study and
recommended that MIlcclenny, the
count\ and Glen St. Mary each as-
sess the same $2'777 tee.
An' impact fee study i, supposed
to anticipate the amount of growth,
then determine how much it "%ill
cost to accommodate it.
Imagine the coincidence that the
little town of Glen,-the larger ur-

THE BACK

PORCH


The Baker County Press office
has been undergoing some substan-
tial changes over these'last months.
The first time I visited the office
for an interview three months ago,
the current renovation was in full
swing.
I sat in the office supply store
holding my resume and clip file.
Then I was escorted through the
lovely interior of the Southern
Charm, gift shop and into the con-
struction chaos of.the newspaper
production area.
Amidst piles of lumber and sa%-
dust, Jim McGauley hunted around
for a chair for me to be seated.
Instead of being put off, as some
people mighi be \\ith the unortho-
dox reception and inter\ ie%\,.l
'found the entire experience charm-
ing and endearing.,I could look ;




to som


beyond the big mess and envision
the future beauty of the completed
offices. And everytime I visited
thereafter, the construction was one
step closer to completion. And I've
loved being able to see it progress.
I've worked in some interesting
and challenging environments in
the past. I always seemed to be the,
employee who didn't have an offi-
cial office.
I worked a long-term temp job
once 'on Kiaah Island near
Charleston and my office was in
the supply closet next to my boss'
office. I'll never understand just
how they got the desk into that
small space, along with a copier
and a fax machine. I'had to turn
sideways and squeeze through the
small space between the wall and
the end of the desk to get in arnd
out.
In the newspaper office where I
"as employed as production assis-
tant I had no office at all. EBeryone
had a stool and sat at various places
around one small room with no
windows. There \%as no pri\ac\

unless you went to the restroom. I
went a lot.
As assistant to the curators at the
Columbia Museum of Art in South
Carolina, I initially worked in what
had been a bathroom on the second
story'of an historic house.
It was cramped and dark but at
least it had a. small window up near
the eave of the ceiling. Every once
in a while, strange avian shadows
were cast along the walls as crows
flew by. It was creepy in a way and
made me think of being on the set
of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds,"
but I never let myself dwell too
much on that.
There was about three feet of
space between me and the wall
behind me, and e\ er time I pushed
back my chair to.stand up it hit the
\" all. ;
I sat directly\ o'er the opening in
the floor, here the toilet had been.
The original toilet had a \\all tank
and this and the pull chain %\ere
still present, dangling in the air
abo\e my head. The bathtub was,
also still there and \\as used for

storage. The redeeming characteris-
tic of this odd situation was that I
ascended and decended a grand
winding staircase to get to and
from m) "office."
When the museum relocated to a
modern state-of-the-art facility, I
was rankled that I STILL didn't
have a private, individual office
like e err one else in the building.
The offices on the upper.floors had
floor to ceiling windows with great
street views and trees. My "office"
was in the basement adjacent to the
elevators, the sewer access and the
main electrical hub.
It had nice carpet and.good
lighting but that didn't change the
fact that it consisted of an over-
sized desk at the'end of a hallway.
More than once did I look up and
see liquid from a backed up water
line coming up through the drains
-in the restrooms and making its
way do,, n the hall tow ard my desk.
My new work space is going to
be beautiful. The original brick and
mortar w alls are exposed. The
graceful archi\a s of the interior
architecture has been left intact.
Heart-of-pine planks cover the
floors. It \ ill be well \orth the sac-
rifice it took to make it come to
fruition. The employees have
endured weeks s and %weeks and of
breathing in sawdust and leaving
.\ork half-deaf from the ear-split-
ting noise of power saws and pneu-
matic nail guns. But ch, ou should
see it taking shape.
The craftsmanship is wonderful.
If it took longer than expected, it
,a-, because the remodlers were
perfectionists. It'-s rare to find folks
that do such quality work anymore.
My hat is off to these guys. The\
can build me a house anytime.

And no%\ to mention another
future building project. I need to
correct a mistake I made vhen I
recently covered the Festival of
Trees Gala Celebration.
It \\as announced during the
gala that Catherine Reynolds,
director of The Catherine Reynolds
Foundation and the featured speak-
er at the gala, made a pledge

MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
BGL'BEEIT l ^[g.'3
Before I start m\ column I hate
to comment on something that I
heard on the new\s. Last week in
m\ column, you may remember
(and if you don't remember, you
could check back b\ taking it out
of the bottom of the bird cage and
reading between the droppings).
\our crack m\estigati\e journalist
reported on the government chang-
ing the names of things in order to
make them more palatable.
Instead of illegal immigrants,
%%e \rIll soon hae "guest \ ork-
ers," and I suggested some other
name changes. Ironically, not two
days later, I %as listening to the
Secretary of Defense talk about the
war in Iraq. Secretary Rumsfeld
told reporters that the government
will no longer refer to those Iraqis
who are fighting us as insurgents.
They certainly won't be referred to


as the Iraqi resistance.
Those terms make them sound
too heroic, Rumsfeld said. Instead,
the\ %\ill be referred to as either
Terrorists, Enemies of the Iraqi
People, or Saddamists. I personally
like Saddamists. It sounds kind of
like cursing.
I'd say nit hen I stub my toe on
the chair at night: "Ouch! Sad-
damist chair!"
It was funny because one of the
generals in Iraq got up to speak on
the progress of the war and stum-
bled when he got to what he was
supposed to call the enemy. "We
are making real progress against
the ... uh ... um ..."
At that point, the Secretary
leaned over and whispered, "Ene-
mies of the Iraqi People."
What I think the \ hole problem
is with the Saddamist-Terrorist-
Enemies-of-the-Iraqi-People idea
is we named the wrong guys. In-
stead of renaming them, we need
to rename ourselves. Instead of the
LiS Arm \we need to call our-
se,lves Guest Workers. That should
do it.


But I digress.
I spent most of Saturday deco-
rating for Christmas. My wife is
always big into decorating for any
holiday and Christmas is the
biggest of the big. We spent most
of the afternoon putting up gar-
land, lights, and sticking a snow-
man or a Santa on ever) available
space.
It's gotten to the point we don't
really need any new decorations,
and to her credit, Kelle\ hasn't
bought a lot of ne\\ stuff over the
past few years. Howe\er, this year
she produced a couple of boxes of
outside lights.
These weren't ordinary outside
lights. They weren't the typical
.colored bulbs or even the icicle
lights that have become so popular
the last four or five years. These
were big plastic snowflakes.
Actually, they are very pretty,
but then 1 noticed a little white
switchbox attached to the cord. It
has a dial with eight settings.
"What is this?"
"You turn the switch to get the
lights to do things."
"Do things?"
"They blink, they travel, they
glow, they do other stuff I can't
figure oul."
"Can they pick out the perfect
Christmas gift for my wife?" I
asked.
"Don't you wish?" she answer-
ed.
I set them to blink and my chil-
dren immediately started com-
plaining.
"I hate blinking lights," said
Sara.
I set them to glow.
"I don't like that either," said
Spencer.
My children are traditionalists.
They don't like blinking lights and
you'd darned well better put the
Nutcrackers and the nativity scene
in the same place it w'as last year.
"What are you doing Dad?"
asked Sara as I was setting up the
action figure dolls of Bing Crosby
and Rosemary Clooney from


White Christmas: our favorite holi-
day movie.
"I'm decorating the fireplace."
"The\ don't go there. The\ go
on the shelf over \our chair."
"Can't I put them here? Bing
and Rosemary might like the
change."
"No!" she said stridently. "Are
you trying to ruin my Christmas?"
"I don't think moving Bing will
trash your Christmas."
"It \ill. Last year was an awful
Christmas. You and mom decorat-
ed before I got'home from FSU and
I hardly had any ornaments on the
tree. It was awful."
"Okay." I moved the dolls. That
didn't help me. Not fi\e minutes
later, Kelley stopped me.
"W\here are you putting that ce-
ramic Santa?"
"Uh ... here on the buffet."
"It doesn't go there."


"Where does it go?"
"The hearth."
"Are you sure? The Christmas
Gestapo has already stopped me
from putting Bing on the hearth."
"Bing goes on the shelf by your
chair. Don't \ou pa\ attention
ever\ year?
"1 guess not. Maybe I should
draw a diagram."
"I think \ou should. You don't
want to ruin people's Christmas do
\ou'"
I think I'm beginning to see
\ hat made the Grinch the Grinch.

Youths arrested

in two cases of

retail shoplifting

Juvenile age males were arrest-
ed in two separate and unrelated
cases of shoplifting in south Mac-
clenny last week.
An assistant manager watched
as a 17-year-old from St. George,
Ga. put on a pair of sneakers at
Wal-Mart the afternoon of Dec-
ember 3.
The youth placed his shoes into
the box that had contained the new
ones, then walked out of the store,
police were told. The shoes were
valued at $21.
The youth was arrested for
petty theft, the same charge filed
against a 15-year-old the afternoon
of November 28 at the Movie
Gallery on South 6th.
He is accused of-taking a con-
troller and five electronic games
valued at $190. He and a 16-year-
old male went to the store to
exchange a defective controller.
The other youth was not charged.


Latest 'Potter' may be intense

"LDjdiJ\. I'm scared. I don't
want.to watch any more."
That was what I heard from the
row behind me as Harry Potter set
out to battle the evil Voldemort in
H.:rt' Pnmer and the Goblet of
Fire, the newest installment in the
series. I couldn't look away.
The early reviews of the newest
Harry Potter movie stressed that it
is a much darker and a less kid-
friendly movie than the other
three. The rating has been moved
up from PG to PG13 and-judging
from the reaction of at least one of
the multitude of 6-10.year olds in
the audience, the reviews are cor-
rect.
I'm a fan of both the books and
the films. I enjoyed all three of the
previous-movies, and I am con-
vinced that this one is the best of
the bunch. Don't worry, I'm not
going to give away any secrets that
will spoil the mov ie.
In Goblet of Fire, Harr\ and his
Friends are 14 and ha\e returned to
Hogwarts School after attending
the Quidditch World Cup, which
ended in disaster and death when
minions of the evil Lord Volde-
mort disrupted the festivities.

sends an assassin to kill him.

team lost 66-50 at Paxon High
School Tuesday night.
With the loss, the Cats' record'
fell to 1-2 on the season. They
have yet to play a district oppo-
nent.
SCoach Charles Ruise said his
team has got to start taking better
care of the ball.
The game ended too late to in-
clude details in this issue.
Paxon was the third of five
straight road trips for the Cats.
They next play December 8 at Fer-
nandina Beach, then at Suwannee
the following day before returning
for their home opener December

City.
The Tigers jumped to a quick 7-
2 lead, but the Cats, fueled by a
crisp defense that allowed them to

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD

I should have known better than to bet against Bobby Bowden in a big
game with national implications. Bobby Bowden knows about big games
arid has enough talent on his team to motivate them to play up to their po-
tential.
There was no way that the Seminoles should have beaten #4 Virginia.
Tech on Saturday in the ACC championship game. Virginia Tech was rou-
tinely running over, around, and through opponents. Only a loss to Miami
,was keeping them from challenging for a.national title.
On the other side of the field, the Seminoles were looking decidedly
mortal. They had lost. three straight, two ACC games to Virginia and NC
State-and a hirriblc humiliating defeat to arch-rival, Florida. In the Flori-.
da game they showed no. spark, and it was clear what the outcome of tlhe
ACC chnampi.'nrhip C' would be.
That was then, this is now. FSU completelyshut down dangerous quar-
terback Marcus Vick and the Tech offense for three. quarters. They con-
tained Vick, who can throw pinpoint passes and scramble, with a suffocat-
ingdefense.

the first quarter on a 14-0 run.
In the second quarter, however,
turnovers and missed opportuni-
ties allowed Columbia to come
back and take the lead.
The Tigers scored eight unan-
swered points to draw within one,
before the Cats got on the board
with a three-pointer.

Trying to stem the tide, Ruise

over on a violation coming out of
the time out and the Tigers con-
. averted to go up.24-19.

Ladies lose at home


The Lady Wildcats basketball
team was dominated from start to
finish by Santa Fe, losing at home
64-29 Tuesday night.
.The loss drops their record to 1-
4 (1-3 in district play). -
Santa Fe ran out to an 18-5 first
quarter lead, but Baker was able-to
play them even in the second. The
score at halftime was 31-18.
Coming out of the locker room,
however, Santa Fe scored the first
10 points of the quarter to effec-
tively put the game away.
The Cats didn't score until there,
were less four minutes to go in the
quarter.
The Cats were unable to handle
Santa Fe's full-court man-to-man
defense. Even when they broke the
press, they often turned the ball
over trying, to push the pace on
their end of the court. :
Although the Cats played de-


cent half-court defense, they
'.',eren't real strong on the boards.
Also, they couldn't keep up with
the visitors in transition.
Freshman Brittany Ruise led
the Cats with 14'points, half of
which came in the second quarter.
For the game, she dropped in four
field goals and was 6-13 from the
free throw line:
Brittany Hinson scored in 8,
Caitlin'Griffis 4 and Sarah Traw-
ick 1.
The Cats have a busyweek
coming up, with four games in six
days.
They play December 8 at home
against Ridgeview (junior varsity
at 6 pm, the varsity at 7:30 pfi).
The following e, t ening they
travel toBradford County. On De-
cember 12 they host West Nassau
then play at Suwannee County the
next night.
