Two plans proposed to
ease schooltraffic woes
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Brenda Swisher has been
appointed chairwoman of the new lI
formed Traffic Related Comrnittee
that 11il focus on solving traffic
and parking problems that have
become problematic for residents
of the South Boulevard neighbor-
hood adjacent to the new PreK
The committee's first meeting
convened Thursday e ening. June
29 to hear two proposals one from
the school board, the other from the
residents of that south NMacclenny
Members of the traffic commit-
tee, who are serving on a volunteer
basis, represent the school board,
school district. City of Mlacclenny,
sheriff's office, fire department and
NMs. Swisher, w ho resides at
Boulevard and Lav erne just east of
the school property, defined dur-
ing her initial address of committee
members the purpose and ground
rules of the traffic committee.
""We are all here tonight because
we care about children," Mls.
Sw isher stated. "We care about the
education of those children and also
about the %welfare of one of the old-
est communities in Nlacclenny "
She called for teamwork to
resolve the traffic and parking
problems to the satisfaction of the
school board and the community.
She also made clear her expectation
of professional conduct b\ comnut-
tee members during the duration of
"There should be no w whispering,
smirking, snickering, or disrespect-
ful behavior during these meetings."
Ms Swisher said "The disrespect I
have seen exhibited pre\liously is
The meetings were set by com-
mittee vote to a time limit of one
and one half hours per session
Dunng the first meeting, two
proposals. Plan A and Plan B were
presented and opened for discus-
Plan A, proposed by the school
district, involves applying vis-
ible striping to the center of South
Boulevard to create two one-way
traffic lanes One will be designated
for buses, one for cars. An addition-
al crossing guard w would be added to
help direct buses and cars entering
and exiting the current loading and
Plan A also calls for reconfigura-
tion of existing parking along South
Boule ard adjacent to the school
grounds to 45-degiee angles The
purpose is to increase the number
of spaces and hopefully expand the
size of the new cai and bus lanes b\
The proposal theonzes that plac-
ing existing parking at an angle
should also facilitate backing out
and merging with traffic flow. The
possibility of making available
some free spaces in a middle school
parking lot currently used by cafete-
ria and sern ice personnel, but closed
to the public for security purposes,
\\ ill also be considered.
Proposal A is characterized by
immnediacN and could possibly be in
place b\ August 3. before the next
school term begins It is not con-
sidered to be a permanent solution,
only a stop-gap measure
Plan B. presented by Danny
Lamb representing the neighbor-
hood. calls for eliminating bus
traffic and PreK-related traffic and
parking from South Boulevard alto-
Relocation of existing middle
school campus recreation sites
such as the track, basketball and
tennis courts wouldd open up room
to construct a new bus and PreK.
Kindergarten traffic loop and park-
A new one-way in.one-way
out loop utilizing Johnathan and
Laverne Streets as the main conduit
would concentrate bus and car traf-
fic and associated parking to a dif-
ferent location somewhere behind
the PreK facility and away from
Some, but not all of the optional
locations of Plan B could require
PreK kindergarten age children to
walk across school property from
their classrooms to the designated
drop off and pick up point.
Concerns were expressed by
several traffic committee mem-
bers regarding the logistics of
such an arrangement, especially in
bad weather Such an arrangement
could require construction of co\ -
ered w alk\ ays.

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Todd Bunting, manager of Ace Hardware in
Macclenny, wanted .to do something special for his
store, something that would make shopping there mem-
orable for the regular customers and visitors.
His idea a model car collection.
Several times a year the Ace Hardware Company
sends catalogues to its vendors featuring special-issue
model cars. Mr. Bunting, who began ordering the cars
for his son at Christmas a number of years ago, decided
to start another collection for his store.
He kept the first models on the shelves of his small
office in the back of the store.
"The office door was always open. Kids would go
by and see the models and go nuts," he said. "They'd
drag their parents into the office to see the cars and
trucks and planes. Seems like I had people in there all
the time. I'd take the models down and let them hold
III i tI Over time the
Igrew the few
shelves in the
6 89076 48819 office and had
to be moved to a display case on the back side of the
cashier station. Again, it was the kids that always saw
the models and made a fuss.
Mr. Bunting says it's not unusual to be working in
the store and hear a child shout "Hey Dad, come look
Collecting the models started out simply as fun, but
their popularity among patrons prompted Mr. Bunting
to pursue building the collection seriously. He is now
planning to construct a series of display shelves that
will be located on the upper walls around the store.
His favorite model is a truck complete with boat and
"This is a Ford F-150 with a TR-17/DC Bass Boat,"
he says proudly. "The truck's tailgate, hood and trunk
open and the steering wheel on the boat turns the motor,
and the seats rotate."
Many of the cars, trucks and planes in the collection
are designed as banks for saving coins. There are vin-
tage replicas as well as contemporary models some-
thing to please all interests.
The models are manufactured by the Ertl Company,
famous for its replicas of vehicles, planes and farm
equipment. Ertl produces models for big industry
names such as John Deere.
trucks and planes in the near filtre. Photo10 by Ke.lley I umng
The models are made of die-cast metal with fully
detailed interiors, engines and under carriages. Doors
and windows open, as do hoods and tailgates.
Mr. Bunting hopes his collection will become a draw
for the store, not just for to shop for hardware, but to
see and compare the different models.
"I think it would be great if people living in
Macclenny would bring visiting friends and family to
the store specifically to see it," he says. "I want the col-
lection to become a point of pride for local folks."
More than hardware...

My daughter Sara Beth got this
look of shock on her face as she said
it. She was relating an event from
her day working at the YMCA.c
She and her brother Dylan are
working at the Y's summer day
camp. They are in charge of the 4-6
year old kids.
I have to laugh because it hasn't
been that long since they've acted
like 4-6 year olds.
An example: My wife made a
cake the other day with seven-min-
ute icing and Sara Beth walked out
of her bedroom and through the
kitchen.,,, -;; -
"What's that I smell ''"
"A cake," I said.
"Who's it for?"
"I don't know. But its got seven-
"Seven-minute icing," she shout-
ed, and then immediately lowered
her voice to a whisper. .She knew
that if her little brother Spencer
heard about it, the race to the icing
bowl would be an Olympic event.
"Bowl?" she asked.
"Sink," I shot back.
Her eyes were like saucers as she
beat a path to the icing bowl. For
the next five minutes, her head was
buried in it.
"Hey," yelled Spencer as he
emerged from his room. "Share the
wealth. Share the wealth."
"No wealth for you," she replied,
her face emerging from the bowl,
spoon in hand and a dollop of icing
on the end of her nose. "Ha, ha, ha,
ha, hah!" she sang.
"Hah to you!" he yelled, grab-
bing the bowl and running from the
"Ahhhhh! Mamaaaa! Spencer
stole the icing bowl."
She chased him from room to
room. Spencer, who is quicker and
more agile than his sister, jumped
over furniture and ran backwards
with the bowl held out tauntingly
while his big sister whined.
"Stop it, Spencerrrr!"
Of course, the affair of the cake
wasn't finished. A couple of hours
later, Dylan came home from
band practice. We don't see much
of Dylan; he's either working or
practicing with his band, Soapbox
Havoc. [The band is playing at the

The seven-minute icing was com-

only iced sides.

After reading the article this
week on the poor conditions at the
Macclenny park, I want to submit a
comment on behalf of my daughter
My family lives just a few blocks
from the park, and with my home
being so close to Highway 121, I
feel more comfortable taking my
2-year-old daughter and my 6-year
old nephew to the park to play. I of-
ten find myself having to make ex-
cuses to my nephew as to why we
can't go to certain areas of the park
because of the vandalism and poor
My nephew asks me, "Aunt Issy,
lets go sit in the shade under the

"O nl\ if there isn't any glass or gar-
bage." He doesn't quite understand
why I tell him that, but anyone
who has a 2-year-old toddler will
agree that they seem to pick up ev-
c'ryIiin h asking "%hat' this," and
Lord knows there are plenty ciga-
rette butts to supply a whole army
of "smokes" for a year!
So we tend to stay away from the
areas that are worse, but my nephew
seems to to think it's me being "mean."
He thinks if he picks up the garbage

I am very happy to hear that the
park is finally getting the attention
it deserves. Unfortunately, cosmetic
care isn't going 'to be enough. My
hope is that Macclenny puts the
