Press Staff
Members of an interagencN
committee formed to prepare for
the county's growth kicked around
a few ideas on how to pay for the
services that will be needed - in-
cluding a half-cent sales tax. higher
property taxes and a temporary
moratorium on new\ construction.
Eight representatives from the
county, citN of Macclenny, town of
Glen St. Mary. the school board,
the county property appraiser and
the Northeast Florida Regional
Planning Council met April 7 at
City Hall.
Based on residential projects al-
ready approved, Cathy Rhoden,
county planning director, laid out
some of the projected needs in ba-
sic categories such as police,
fire/rescue, recreation and trans-
She said the count, 'will need

new library: a fire station in

roads, such as building shoulders

Ex-county manager ws signing contest in Texas

Press Publisher
People around Baker Counts,
know w' ho Josie Davis is for a num-
ber of reasons.
He's a former counts property
He's a former county manager.
He's a former policeman.
He's a former truck driver.
He's a realtor.
Add this to your list. Josie Davis
'of Glen St. Mary is the reigning
winner of the Jim Reeves Sound
Alike competition.
And that means, in the opinion of
the judges on hand March 18 at the
annual competition in the country
legend's hometown of Carthage,
Texas,' amateur singer Josie Davis.
sounds more like Gentleman Jim
Reeves than the four other finalists.
So, how did this happen?
"I've always liked Jim Reeves
and Marty Robbins, and people al-
ways told me I sounded like Gen-
'tleman Jim," said Mr. Davis.
"One of Jim Reeves' nephews,
John Rex Reeves, does a sound-
alike show in Branson, Mo. and I

Josie, his wife Pam and fellow
amateur singer Jimmy Barton and
wife Annette of Macclenny drove
out to east Texas for the contest. It
was held in the auditorium of the

, high school in Carthage that mor-
, ing.
"I didn't think I'd win it so I
guess you could say it was a lark,"
the 63-year-old Glen St. Mary na-
tive said in a recent interview.
He sang just one Reeves hit,
Adios Amigo, in the brief perfor-
, ance, and that was enough to con-
vince the judges

As the win-
ner, he took the
stage that
evening for the
finale and an en-
core. He brought

Country mu-
sic purists know
all about Jim
Reeves. They,
called him
Jim" because of
his smooth de-
liery that
brought a coun-
try flavor to the
popular crooning
singing style of

that era.
He was one of the first "cross-
over" artists topping the country
and pop charts in the 1950s and
1960s. He first smash hit was Mexi-
can Joe and it remained a top seller
53 weeks.
Josie Davis was a big country
and rock fan back in the 1950s and

his love for music remained more
on the listening side.
"I was too bashful to ever sing in
public, and the first time I did was
in church," he recalls.
He's played and sang in a num-
ber of local bands through the
years, and more recently produced
a CD of his favorites, all with

kareoke background music.
It's titled "Gentleman Josie."

The simmering issue of who will
foot the bill for improvements to
County Road 23A nearly boiled
over Tuesday night, but the respec-

As a result, representatives from

Alex. Robinson was Tuesday's
meeting of the Macclenny city

"It's a county road but 'we real-

"I don't think we're going to be
hard-nosed about it."
Mr. Robinson talked about
whether the developers could be
made to contribute. He was refer-

the man in charge of defending this
country and our way of life is
called "Rummy."
That inspires confidence. When
I was growing up, the term rummy
was used to describe two things. If
you were a red nosed uncle who sat
around all day watching wrestling
and drinking a suitcase of beer, you
were called a rummy.
Rummy was also a term of deri-

Mr. Robinson made the statement
that he remembers $500,000 or
$600,000 was to go toward a new

deciding which projects should get
funding. Mr. Robinson you are

need to share

the highway

Dear Editor:
Let me say that I am a realist
and a reasonably logical person. I
understand that according to the
National Agenda for Motorcycle
Safety report, published in 2000,
the most comprehensi\ e motorcy-
cle accident analysis study ever
conducted in the U.S., that most
motorcycle riders kill themselves.
The largest majority by traveling
faster than their skills or conditions
However, \ihen considering
responsible motorcycle riders, like
my fallen brothers White) Green,
Gene Pollard and Elick Driggers
III, most of us are killed by "a %ehi-
'cle turning left into the path of the
motorcycle, while failing to yield
the ultimate right of way."
The media's favorite dig at my
two-wheeled brothers and sisters -
Helmet, no helmet - is honestly a
complete. dodge of the serious, real
issue at hand. Ask anyone who
rides a motorcycle - your father,
your mother, your brother, your
city council person, your dentist,
your clerk of courts, your county
attorney, your preacher - how many
times they have heard " I didn't see
Since 1979, all motorcycles
sold in the U.S. have, by federal
law, a headlight that comes on any
time the motorcycle key is turned.
Most of us ha% e even added more
lights on our own because we are
tired of burying our brothers and
sisters for the rest of America's
right to drive like idiots.
In this day and age of cell
phones, eating on the run in the car,
applying makeup on the way to
work, riding with your pet in the
front seat with you, and always
being in too big of a hurry to get
where you are going, it is time for
America to stop breaking the law.
Stop and think about the fact that
you are in control of a 2000-3000
pound weapon that is killing hon-
est, hard working, loving, affec-
tionate, devout Christian men like
Whitey Green.
This is not an issue about one
person who made a bad decision, it
is about literally thousands of peo-
ple who are making bad decisions
day in and day out. Most impor-
tantly, it is about Whitey and Anne
and Misty and Robert and Tracey
and Marvin and Paul and Clark and
Gene and Kathy and Michael and
Amanda and Elick III and Elick II
and Wayne and Anna and Jennifer
and Elick IV.
This issue's solution does start
with one person, and that person is
you, America. A friend of mine
favors "murdercycle" to "motorcy-
cle." This friend, I am sure, would,
if he rode a motorcycle, more accu-
rately prefer "murdercars" to
"motorcars" when referring to
those of us who are responsible
motorcycle riders. Ride safely my
brothers and sisters, because as far
as we are concerned, America's car
drivers have a license to kill.

Unable to pass sobriety test

A Glen St. Mary man was ar-
rested April 6 for DUI after he was
stopped for careless driving.
Matthevw Floyd, 20, was driving
on Macclenny Avenue around
10:22 pm when Deputy Mark Hall
saw him accelerate to a high speed
then slam on his brakes to narrow.-
ly avoid hittlling a car stopped in
front of him.
The officer approached the sil-
\er Mustang and noticed the odor
of alcohol and that Mr. Floyd had
difficulty getting his license out of
his wallet.
*He became belligerent when
asked for his registration and proot
of insurance.
Dep. Hall told him he was giv-
ing him a ticket for careless dri-
ving and that Mr. Floyd needed to

call someone to pick up him and
his car.
"No one will come and get me:
they \\ill say, 'Take him to jail,'"
he said.
The officer said if he was un-
willing to call someone, he would
conduct a DUI investigation to de-
termine Mr. Floyd's ability to dri-
ve the car.
If he \'as unable to pass it. he
would be taken to jail.
Mr. Floyd continued to be bel-
ligerent and uncooperative, so the
officer asked him to take roadside
sobriety tests.
"I'm not doing any [freaking]
exercises." he replied.
The officer arrested him and
cuffed him, then asked if he'd
changed his mind about doing the
"Get these [freaking] handcuffs
off me right now." was Mr.
Floyd's response.
He was taken to jail where a
breath test measured his blood al-
,cohol at .196 and .205.

John and Mae Chesser of
Macclenny celebrated their 75th
wedding anniversary last Saturday
during a party given at their home
by friends and family. A catered
meal under outdoor tents featured
chicken, beef, potatoes, baked
beans and a special anniversary
cake. Another celebration for the
long time couple was .hosted by
their church on Sunday.
In a recent interview, Chesser,
96, said that the hardest job he e\ er
had to do was asking Mae's father
for her hand in marriage.
"I was afraid he'd say no and he
did," Chesser said. "He said she
%was too young. But eventually I
did marry her in Lake Butler in
Chesser first seriously noticed
the girl who would become his
wife when she would walk past his

house on the way to church.
Mrs. Chesser fondly looks at her
husband with her large, blue eyes
and smiles.
"He's been so good to me," she
says. "He has treated me the best
anyone ever has. And he has such a
good mind, even at his age. I
admire that."
The Chessers both agree that
marriage and life have been about
taking things one day at a time.
"I developed a philosophy long
ago." says Chesser. "-1 decided that
if I got married, I'd stay married. If
I joined the church, I stay w ith the
church and so on. I've approached
most things that way through my
The Chessers hase seen many
changes in the area o\er the years.
Mr. Chesser has fond memories of
swimming at Vonn's Washhole on

around Macclenny is exciting,"

"Look at that,. Kelley. Is that
not gorgeous?" I said to my wife
as I pointed at the television set.
"Of course it is. It's Augusta,"
she replied, walking out of the
room with absolutely no interest
in what was happening on the
television screen.
It was, of course, the Augusta
National Golf Club, home of the
Masters, the only golf tournament
that I actually sit down and watch.
I'm not a golf fan on most oc-
casions. I enjoy walking the TPC
course at Sawgrass. I was there
for a practice round before the
Players Championship and had a
great time. Golf is one of thGse
sports where you can actually get
uip close to the athletes. On some
of the early holes you can stand
ten feet away and listen to them
talking and joking with each other
and their caddies.
Watching golf on television,
however, has all the appeal of
watching grass grow. Even a
close, exciting match is inter-
minable. It's worse than profes-
sional football in its delays.

I can't really put my
finger on why I enjoy,
watching the Masters.
Even when I'm busy-
Ill try to block off a
few hours on Sunday
afternoon to watch
the final round.

A player hits a ball and then
has to walk 200 yards to hit it
again. In the mean time, they
switch to other golfers I've never
heard of before I get to see my
guy hit again five or ten minutes
I cai't really put my finger on
why I enjoy watching the Mas-
ters. Even when I'm busy like I
was this weekend, I'll try to block
off a few hours on Sunday after-
noon to watch the final round.,
It wasn't particularly exciting
this year. Phil Mickelson led the
whole afternoon, and only when.
playing partner Fred Couples had
a birdie attempt on the 14th to cut
it to a one-stroke lead was there
any drama. But Couples missed
the putt and the drama was gone.
Tiger Woods made a surge late
in the day and you can never
count him out. But Tiger unchar-
acteristically bogeyed the 17th to
put him out of contention.
I still watched. The course is
just so gorgeous and subtly.
treacherous. It looks like a lot of
other layouts and its final holes
are par 4s but they are very de-
ceptive. At Sawgrass, a golfer
knows he has the island green on
the 17th and the 18th with its fair-
way as slim as a fashion model.
Augusta is more elegant in its
difficulty. Its earlier holes are
more challenging and so when
you approach the final two a
golfer might just relax and his ap-
proach shot will roll forever.
One of the ironies of Mickel-
son's second green jacket is that
he missed a gimme putt on 18 to
remove a lot of the celebratory air
of his win. But even that didn't
diminish Tiger Woods helping
him into that green sport coat.
There are more expensive and
beautiful trophies, but only the
World Cup trophy, the Super
Bowl trophy and Lord Stanley's
Cup are more recognizable.
I'm a sucker for tradition.
Maybe that's why I watch.
It beats watching my grass

in the wins against the Broncos
and Panthers.,

,The Baker High track team did well at us district meet Aprl 10 at Fort White High
School. The 4 x 800 meter relav team shown above (Blake Rowan, Wll Fletcher, Kyle

Fletcher also moves on with a third place in the 800 meters. Also heading for regionals,
which will be held April 21 at The Bolles School in Jacksonville, are the girls' 4 x 100
meter relay team of Ciera Thompson, Mary Dugger. Kendra Jones and Andrea Jackson.
Thompson also advances in the long jump. "Coach Lee and I really want to thank our

"The kids continued to work hard to become better student-athletes, stepping it up each
year. We really appreciate them."

Creek to




and more
By Jared Wilkerson
I have some exciting news for
those of us who just love to
spend hours upon hours reading
mountains of development ap-
plications, building permits, and
environmental impact estima-
tions! And for the rest of you.
I've got a good little heads up
on a new oes

Adrian Development Group
hailing from Coral Gables. Flori-
da along with Prosser Hallock.
Inc. of Jacksonville has chosen
Baker County as the site of a
new planned DRI.
W hat's a DRI? DRI stands
for Development of Regional Im-
pact and more or less means
that if all goes well with the ap-
plication process and no one
finds a nest -of-spotted owls
along U.S. Highway 90 just west
of Glen St Mary in the next year
or so, then there's going to be a
lot of construction going on dur-
ing the next fifteen years in that
Anthony Robbins, a senior
planner for Prosser Hallock,
spent last Wednesday morning
meeting with members of local
planning departments and vari-
ous interest groups to explain
the size, scope and purpose of
the new DRI which is currently
slated to be called Cedar Creek.
According to the pre-applica-
tion documents for the develop-
ment, the land mass involved is
projected to contain approxi-
mately 3,012 acres (shown on
maple and will provide for nearly
5,500 nev. residences com-
,posed of single family homes,
town homes, condominiums.

builders come in, get a few hun-
dred permits for homes worked
out, pave the roads, build the
homes, add in an amenities
center here and there in the
nicer subdivisions, dedicate the
roads back to the county and
off they go to the next area.
Cedar Creek is much more in-
volved than that.
Adrian Development Group's
plan will be a bit more like a
whole other city along the north-
ern edge of Highway 90. Cedar
Creelk will not only be full of
houses, it will also include
recreational parks, nature trails.
bike paths, convenience stores,
and over half a million square
feet of retail shopping outlets,
office spaces, and industrial
centers: even two new schools
are projected to be built on the
site - one elementary and one
"This project is being sought
in order to provide Baker County
residents a complete lifestyle
that affords the quality of life we
all strive to live - - the ability to
live and work in the same neigh-

borhood, easy access to parks
and educational facilities and
commercial services within
walking distance," according to
Prosser Hallock, Inc.
The application documents
stress the importance of the
Cedar Creek development in
terms of the employment oppor
tunities it will bring to Bakei
County over the coming years.
Obviously, 500,000 square feel
of retail centers and offices will
require a lot of warm bodies to
man them, in addition to a one-
million square-foot business
Also, Prosser Hallock's plans
for the development point out
the added benefit of having
many of the facilities for which
Baker residents currently must
drive to either Jacksonville or
Lake City located right here in
our own backyard.
The plans are projected to be-
gin construction in 2008 if all
goes well with the approval
process, which will include in
puts from various agencies

such as the Florida Department
of Transportation, Division of
Forestry, The. Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, The Baker County Fire De-
partment, local law enforce-
ment and the Baker CoLunty
Chamber of Commerce.
The current plans call for
three distinct phases of devel-
opment, each spanning a five
year period adding almost
2,000 homes and 150,000
square feet of retail space dur-
ing each phase. .
In 2023, we should all be
able to enjoy the total benefits
.of our community's first full-on
planned development.
Having looked over all of the
available plans in minute detail,
Cedar Creek looks like it will be
a great addition to the Baker
County landscape.
Don't call up the moving com-
pany just yet, though...Cedar
Creek is still in the very early

portion of the application
process. Environmental studies
still have to be completed. Traf-
fic impact assessments cover-
ing a five-mile radius from the

entrances of the development
are planned, but not yet begun.
And each department listed
above will no doubt have their
own suggestions and possible

Objections that will alter Adrian.

Baker County, FL

County Manager

Count) Manager, Baker County, FL (population 24,000). "Preparing Our Future - Preserning Our Past" are the words
on the County's seal and truly describe the challenges facing this historically rural and anractive north Florida county.
Covering almost 600 square miles and located 30 minutes west of lacksoimlle on Interstate 10, the area's population
is poised to increase dramatically. Communities nearer the metropolitan Jacksonville areas are largely built-out, so
development is moving West. In fact, the Board of County Commissioners recently considered a developer's petition to
build 5,500 homes on 3,000 acres. The challenge for many years to come will be preserving the hometown pride and
character of this friendly community in the face of development.

Wiih growth will come change, and to remain a self-sustaining community, the County must ensure the optimum mix
of residential/commercial/industrial land uses so its residents can live, work and play within its boundaries. With over
500 miles of dirt roads, improving the transportation infrastructure will be critical. Water and sewer services are lim-
ited and provided by the city of Macclenny. They will need to be supplemented to support growth. The fire depart-
ment is almost exclusively volunteers and the county's current staff of 85 and budget of $21 million will have to
increase to support the additional services growth will demand.

The County Commission has been stable. It is composed of five members who must reside in their districts, but who
are elected at-large and serves staggered four-year terms. The group is forward thinking and recognizes the need to
prepare for growth, to be ready to deal with developers and to ensure that the county's growth serves the long-term
interests of all residents. While the Commissioners do not agree on everything and frequently express strong opinions,
meetings are conducted in a collegial, professional, and respectful manner.

The ideal candidate will have a track record of achievement and at least five years of progressively more responsible
public sector experience in a high growth area. He/she will be personable, people oriented, friendly and open to the
public, and will be someone with a common-sense approach to government. However, he/she will also be a "tough as
nails" negotiator, fair and reasonable, and someone who will effectively represent the county's interests when dealing
with developers and other parties. Financial management skills are also critical because the county's millage rate is
already at 8.96. He/she will be creative, honest, a strong communicator, and have strong ethical standards. A
Bachelor's degree is preferred, but applicable experience will be considered and may be substituted, Expertise and
experience in utilities will be a significant plus. Salary DOQ, but the range is approximately $60,000 to $100,000.
Forward resume to Recruit23@cb-asso.com before April 28, 2006. Mailed and faxed resumes will not be accepted.
Questions should be addressed to Colin Baenziger of Colin Baenziger & Associates at (561) 793-2624. Under the
Florida Public Records Act, all resumes are subject to public disclosure. The County is an Equal Opportunity
Employer and minorities are encouraged to apply Veteran's preference will be awarded under applicable Florida law,
and the submission of a DD-214 is required. Residency in the County is required.
