Board wants roads
in Deerfield paved
as part of mining pact
BY MICIAEL RINKER
Baker County commissioners
are playing hardball with the huge
Dupont corporation, rejecting the
company's offer to pay $210.000
for permission to extend its titani-
um mining operations across Deer-
field Estates Road and CR 228.
Dupont is offering an estimated
$65,000 in royalties and a $145,-
000 donation to the counts for
"inconvenience relief," especially
for Deerfield Estates residents..
In a letter to the commission,
Dupont plant manager David J.
Podmeyer also said the company's
ongoing mining operations in
extreme southeast Baker County 7
generate $385,000 in county taxes. 0
The "total tangible benefits" to t
the county, therefore, would be t
$595,000, in the company's view. d
Dupont wants to mine north i
across Deerfield Estates Road, then a
north-northeast across and along s
CR 228. t
It proposes to build a temporary n
1.1-mile Limerock road to bypass G
the portion of Deerfield Estates ,,
Road it will be mining. P
The company estimates it will a
take three months to complete the b
project after which it would rebuild t
the approximately 400-foot section
of the road it must dig up, then
close the bypass. b
Plans for CR 228. however, call n
for permanent relocation of a 1.44- ,
mile section of the road. Dupont
would give the county title to the
road after mining was completed.
The county had originally asked
Dupont to pave the dirt roads in
Deerfield Estates. County road sup-
erintendent Robert Fletcher esti-
mates the cost at $465,000.
Commission Chairman Alex Rob-
inson, whose district includes Deer-
field and its approximately 75 resi-
dents, took the offer to Dupont. G
"I figured we could save a little
maintenance because we. wouldn't
have to send our graders down P
there again and again," he said.
After several meetings, compa- A
ny representatives seemed to be is co
leaning toward accepting the deal, ers c
but it was later rejected. Bake
The county then asked for $200,- addit
000 and 20 acres of land. A
Dupont again rejected the offer enou
and came back with the $210,000 force
in royalties and inconvenience re- to fu

BY MICHAEL RINKER
The county's search for a man-
ager is down to five candidates -
three from Florida, one from Pen-
nsylvania and one from Michigan,
but none from Baker County.
All but one has experience in
government administration, but the
exception Michael Brown, direc-
tor of special projects for the
Northeast Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council has expertise in
growth matters, which is probably
the county's most important issue.
In addition to Mr. Brown. the
other candidates are:
*Lyndon Bonner, city manager
of Bunnell. Fla.;
*Richard Casey, McKean Coun-
ty (Pa.) administrator;
*George Hunt, community man-
agement director tor Barefoot Bay,
*Michael Nagy. city manager of
Marine City. Mich.
Colin Baenziger, who was hired
by the county commission to con-
duct the candidate search, said he
received 34 applications by the
deadline of April 28. The recruit-
ment advertisement ran a little
more than three weeks.
Although he targeted Florida
candidates, he received applica-
tions from eight other states, in-
cluding Texas and New York.
Eleven Macclenny residents and
three from Glen St. Mary also
applied, but didn't make the cut.
Mr. Baenziger selected nine of
the 34 applicants, but four with-
drew their names for various rea-
sons, including one who found

Growth group on the right track
There's more to like all the time about the
"growth study group" made up of elected and
appointed officials whose governmental depart-
ments will be most affected by predicted resi-
dential growth here in Baker County.
Represented by the county, Macclenny, Glen
St. Mary and the school district, the group
doesn't yet have a name, but what's in a name?

type study, which would determining just what
services from roads to schools to hospital beds
needed to accommodate the added population.
DRIs can also include commercial and industri-
al growth, but Florida seems most concerned
about the immediate burdens posed by more

Currently, a DRI process is triggered by
developments of 625 homes and above. What

In fact, the impact from three such develop-

It seems that moonshine has
many of the same properties as
ethanol. With just a little tweaking,
a moonshiner can get his home-
made brew to burn in the family F-
150. Using corn, apples, or sugar
cane, a still can turn out 190 proof
grain alcohol that will burn in a
similar way to Ethanol and reduce
by a third a family's fuel cost. The
best part is that it is completely
legal. No revenues perched up in
trees with binoculars.
The shiners started a family
business called Dogwood Energy,
turning out low cost stills that are
just right for the fuel conscious.
They've sold about 125 stills.
Mixing corn with yeast, water
and sugar and then letting the mix-
ture sit for a couple of days makes
close to three gallons of ethanol,
which is blended with gasoline.
The cost of the ethanol and the
gasoline from the pump creates a
mixture of blended gas that comes
out to about $1.09 a gallon.
Since Baker County used to be
the moonshine capital of Florida,
this could be a real cottage indus-

School board votes to establish a

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
The Baker County School Board
has approved a request that the
school district adopt a "Level of
Service" as a yardstick to measure
how added residential growth

The report bases those statistics

each of Florida's 67 districts and
examines criteria like the number
of instructional and non-instruc-
tional spaces, permanent and
portable spaces plus the condition
of existing structures.

Superintendent Paula Barton, Bak-

about 85% of total capacity. It w ill

Mr. Fowler responded by call-
ing Dupont's offer "reasonable."
"We built Deerfield Estates
Road. We have been a good neigh-
bor," he told commissioners. "Peo-
ple think Dupont is very, very
wealthy, but we have to make
money here as a unit."
Mr. Robinson asked the board
to allow him and Mr. Fletcher to
continue negotiations with the
"Other than that, I'm a 'no'
vote," he said.
The other commissioners, who
had met individually with Dupont
officials, voted unanimously in
support of the chairman's propos-

completion of the future Cedar

Barton,-Baker County and the
cities of Macclenny and Glen St.

process of adopting service levels.

on our part not. to take every step

Grandson took, sold drugs
A 17-year-old grandson is charg-
ed with grand theft and exploiting
the elderly for allegedly taking
three bottles of prescription med-
ication from his 80-year-old grand-
mother on May 8.
The victim told police the teen
has a drug problem and he was
later found at a residence off Reid
Stafford Road with a 15-year-old
female who had run away from
home in Orange Park.
The youth told Deputy John
Hardin he sold the drugs on the
street shortly after he took them
from the grandmother's residence
on north Lowder in Macclenny.
She had called police earlier
this month when the grandson,
who has been living with her,
became unruly and attacked her.
He was released back to her cus-,
tody the same day.
The stolen medication included
the sleep aid Ambien, hydroco-
done and Xanax.

Bonnie Plants, whose headquar-
ters is in Union Springs. Alabama,
is a distributor of plants throughout
the United States.
Each year, Bonnie Plants sales
representatives deliver thousands
of cabbage seedlings to third
graders -in elementary schools
across the country as part of its
Third Grade Cabbage Program
Schools are not required to pair-
ticipate and the company simple
makes the plants available at no
charge if there is interest.
The seedling gi'eak\a\ is the
brainchild of Dennis Thomas, the
company's general manager. In
2001, he came up \% ith the idea of,
giving school children the seed-,'
lings of the h) brid OS ko\ er-,ized)
cabbage bred to, grow to tremen-
dous sizes, some as large as fifty
Mr. Thomas- thought growing
the giant vegetables would be fun
for the kids, and he was correct.
The program has become very

Keith Pugh, the company's cus-
tomer relations director, heads up
the third grade cabbage project.
The seedlings are currently avail-
able only in the 48 contiguous
states. Pugh hopes to,get seedlings
to schools in Hawaii and Alaska in
the near future.
"Last year, a child from \\ is-
consin- grew a .cabbage that
weighed 41 pounds," said Pugh.
"That was one big cabbage. Think
of how much cole slaw that made!"

was very supportive of the project,
to the point of di',plaj ing thc.huge
vegetables on the Iobb\ desk in the
office for all \ Mitor to see.
The largest c'.hbbLgaes grown this
year by Westside Elementury third
graders were: 40 lbs. by Delaney

ley; 14 lbs. by Brendan Gibson.
A few cabbage facts.:
V Cabbage is a member of the
"cole" family, which also includes
broccoli and cauliflower. Cole is
the German word for cabbage and
is where coleslaw gets its name.
VA cabbage is 90% water.
V/Ancient Chinese believed that
eating cabbage cured baldness.

Fair Housing... It's the Law!
Were you asked to pay a higher security deposit simply because you have kids?
Did you request a wheelchair ramp and were denied even
though you offered to pay for it?
Were you sexually harassed by your landlord?
Were you denied housing because of your race or color?
These are examples of Fair Housing discrimination.
You cannot be discriminated against because of your race, color, national origin,
handicap, religion, sex or familial status.
