"We're not yet aware of the
other two, though we believe

ber of factors may enter into the

and grand theft.

through Mr. Bennett's pockets
and took an unidentified amount
of cash.
They used the money to buy
gas from Altman's store in Cuy-

Ms. Wilson then went shop-

during the murder, some clothes,
and a silver cross necklace.
Mr. Bennett, who lived alone,

his son, Marcus Bennett, who'd
gone to visit him at his home on
Clarence Bennett Road.
Mr. Bennett, 69, was stabbed
multiple times, according to
Sheriff Joey Dobson, who called
it an "extremely violent attack,"
but wouldn't release details at a

press conference Friday.

Local man

100th slain
The individual with the dis-
tinction of being the 100th homi-
cide victim in Jacksonville so far
this year turned out to be a Mac-
clenny man shot inside an Ar-
lington apartment the afternoon
of August 21.
James McCoy, 32, was shot at
the Monterey Apartments about
1:30, according to the Jack-
sonville Sheriff's Office. As of
Tuesday, no suspects had been
located in the killing, one of two
in the city that day.
Jacksonville's murder rate
is running way ahead of 2005,
and the situation has grabbed
headlines and the attention of
the electronic media, as well as
some unwelcome national media
attention. Most of the murders
have been on the Northside.

Mr. McCoy was committed to
a mental health clinic for obser-
vation a year and one week be-

Macclenny called police because
of erratic and sometimes violent

Investigator Doug York of the
Unibn County SO disputed an
earlier media report that one of
his deputies at the scene ordered
the fuel truck to park in the road-
way as a means of blocking the
speeding vehicle. .
"Actually, he was getting
vehicles off the road for safety
reasons because they knew how
fast that car had been going,"
said Mr. York. "The truck was
partially parked in the road and
there were other vehicles parked
off the shoulder."
The confusion, he speculated,
came from the wording of an
FHP media release issued later
that day. It read in part: "The
driver of vehicle two (the semi)

Undersheriff York said he was
listening Tuesday to tapes of ra-

have police records, and he was
unaware of a report the same
vehicle was chased by a state

took them to her vehicle.

From there they went to

The next day, the couple re-
turned to the Sanderson home
where they'd been staying.
Mr. Arnold said he hid the sto-
len items in three locations in the
back yard of the home on Beech
Street. The guns were buried in a
quilt that Ms. Wilson had taken
from Mr. Bennett's bed.
He took police to the home to
retrieve the items.
When investigators returned,
they re-interviewed Ms. Wilson,
who allegedly confessed to the
murder, little more than four
hours after blaming Mr. Arnold.
At first, she told the sheriff she
stabbed Mr. Bennett once. Soon
afterward, she told Chief Ger-
ald Gonzalez it was twice. Still
later, she again said twice but
told investigators she blacked
out and could have stabbed him
more times.
She also told them she dis-
posed of the murder weapon
and her shoes, but wouldn't say

and Mr. Arnold into the same
room where the couple agreed
that she'd killed Mr. Bennett.

told them of the arrest. They
were "relieved," he said at his
press conference the following
morning. .. -
Investigators put in dozens of
hours tr) ing to close the case in
the first few days.
The sheriff said he and his
staff were concerned that com-

At that point she began to
swoon, and Sheriff Dobson
stepped forward to catch her.
He held her there as Judge

gained her composure.

Bear had become 'nuisance


I had the unusual experience
recently of being present during
the rescue of a mother bear and
her two cubs from a tree behind
a residence in downtown Mac-
I just happened to be passing
the area as the event unfolded.
A rescue team from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission conducted the res-
cue and personnel from the For-
estry Service had secured the
area. Fire Chief Buddy Dugger
got me permission to approach
and when the sow was tranquil-
ized and safely on the ground,
he escorted me up close to get
my photos.
It was the first black bear I
had ever seen and I marveled at
the competence of the team as
they examined the sow, gathered
data and loaded her and later the
cubs into a culvert trap for safe
transport to the agency's head-
I left feeling good about the
bear's fate.
It was with surprise and dis-
may that I learned several days
later the mother bear had been
I wanted to know why. When
I discussed it with other people,
they wanted to know the same
thing. Bears are seriously en-
dangered and not many are left
in the wild. To destroy an ani-
mal whose numbers are already
so threatened seemed folly. So
why had she been destroyed?
I called Henry Cabbage at
the press office of the FFWCC
to find out how their organiza-
tion arrives at such a decision.
According to Mr. Cabbage,
this mother bear's problems
began a year ago when she

wandered into a residential sub-
divison in Apopka. She was
captured and relocated. A year
later she appeared in Apopka
again, near a garbage source,
this time with three cubs. She
and the cubs were captured and
relocated to the Apalachicola
National Forest.
Later she was sighted, with
only two cubs in Eastpoint, first
at a campground, then a private
There, were reports of her
foraging in a dumpster and ex-
hibiting fearless behavior in the
presence of humans.
It was later discovered the
bear was being intentionally fed
dog food in a residential back-
In a last attempt to relocate
'the bear to the wild, she and the
cubs were released in a remote
section of the Osceola' Forest.
Two weeks later the bears were
captured in Macclenny.
Unfortunately, this bear had
used up her quota of chances
and became what the FFWCC
categorizes as a 'nuisance'
Bears lose their innate wari-
ness of humans when people
intentionally feed them or leave
items like pet food or garbage
accessible on their property and
in campgrounds.
Bears become conditioned to
human food sources and begin
to tolerate the presence of peo-
ple to gain access to the food.
According to Kipp Frohlich,
section leader of Imperiled Spe-
cies for FFWCC, "...bears are
attracted to garbage and like to
dig in trash cans and dumpsters.
Those containers can be tightly
secured and we need the coop-
eration of waste management
companies and communities if
we are to solve this problem."
Frohlich also says that there
are few facilities willing to take
"nuisance" bears and when they
lose their fear of humans and
become potentially aggressive,

they are usually euthanized.
Intellectually, I grasp
reasoning, but only in part.
And so when the Maccle

RPress Staff
A recent title search required
;,o complete the deeding of five
acres of land South of Sander-
son on CR 229 to Corey Ben-
hett revealed that one acre of the
parcel has actually belonged to
ithe Baker County School Board
.since 1891.
i Until the recent search, the
district was unaware it owned
|the property.
Freddie and Connie Bennett,
Parents of Corey Bennett, who
were in the process of deeding
five acres of their 100+family
farm to their son, contacted the
school after court records re-
yealed the discrepancy.
According to official court
'and tax records researched by the
Bennetts and school district Di-
tector of Facilities Denny Wells,
the acre was originally deeded
|o the school district by A. J.
Cobb, the county's first superin-
tendent, for the construction of a
one room school house.
; Mr. Cobb owned the property
and on record is his hand-writ-
ten "warranty deed" dated Feb.
,1891, which gave one acre to
the Baker County School Board
4)r the price of one dollar.
Corey Bennett's mother Con-
me, a former district administra-
t1r. maintained the property has
Been in the family since pur-
hase by her great-grandfather,
*rthur Raulerson. The Bennett
timily has paid taxes on the land
fr the last 50 years.
Also, according to the Ben-
letts, the back quarter of the
Iand is considered wetlands and
could not be developed. Two
ponds on the property were
constructed when CR 229 was
quilt. Only about half of the acre
iyould actually be viable.
t The board voted this week to
teed the land back to the Ben-
Aett family. Corey Bennett will
be responsible for all survey,
writing description and record-
iig fees associated with comple-
tion of deed process.
"The Bennetts have been
very forthright about this situa-
tion and have voluntarily shared
all information and documents
With us. We want to do the right
thing." said Superintendent Pau-
1r Barton. "Ownership of this
one acre won't make or break
the school district. I consider
this a 'people first' decision,"
she said.
SIn other matters this week,
the board granted the request
df Marcheta Crews, Director
4f Family Service Center, for
guidelines to place automatic
external defibrilators (AEDs) in
Baker County Schools.
; AEDs are devices that shock
the heart to restore a normal
heartbeat in the event of a car-
diac arrest or a life-threatening
irregular heart rhythm.

Dr. Gary Dopson said he was moved when he stepped outside the Baker Community Health Center adjacent to Fraser Hospital
on August 15 to learn its name had been changed to Dopson Family Medical Center to honor his 34 years of family practice
in Baker County. Dr. Dopson is leaving in September to become a staff physician at Northeast Florida State Hospital, but will
remain as chairman of the non-profit Baker County Medical Services that manages Fraser Hospital and the Wells Nursing Home.
The physician, a Macclenny native who returned here to open a practice in 1972, initially had a joint practice with the late Dr.
Frank Kilgo, and had been located for years on South 5th in Macclenny, then moved to the medical building several months ago.
He and several other doctors are located in the same facility. Dr. Dopson is a veteran city commissioner and current mayor of

Winn Dixie donates Jaguar tickets

to middle school teachers & students

Winn-Dixie. Stores, Inc. has
'.donated 960 tickets to 10 Jag-
uars home games this season to
help launch a new program to
honor middle school teachers
and motivate their students.
The A-Team" program
awards teachers for outstanding
classroom performance and stu-
dents for hard work in academ-
ics, good attendance and over-
all attitude.
The program targets middle
schools in the six county First
Coast area that includes Baker.
It was left to individual
schools to decide how the stu-
dent tickets are awarded.
At Baker County Middle
School, teachers submitted
names of students from 6th, 7th
and 8th grades who exhibited A-
Team qualities of "academics,
attitude and attendance."
The names were placed
in three containers and nines
names from each grade were
drawn by Principal David Davis
on the school's live broadcast of
the Bobcat Morning Show. Each
lucky student received a family\
four-pack of tickets.
Middle school teachers re-
ceived two tickets each on a first
come. first served basis.
"'I as so pleased to be able to
offer the tickets to our desert ing
students and teachers through
this program," Principal Davis
said. "They all worked hard to
help the school achieve its cur-
rent "B" raring. This is a great
w av to celebrate."
When a group of students
was asked about receiving the
tickets, the overall response w as
that them were happy about it.
Most thought getting the tickets
was "cool."
What Mr. Davis likes most
about the Jaguar tickets is that
some students m\ ho nonnally
wouldn't have the opportunity
to attend a lie game will now

El As your District 2 Commissioner I pledge to use all the resources available to me to promote jobs and regulate
growth. I will consult and seek'good'relationships with:
Fellow commissioners, Development Commission, Chamber of Commerce, City of Macclenny, Town of
Glen St. Mary, First Coast Cornerstone Group, Baker County School system, neighboring county govern-
ments, maximum use of state resources.

0[ As your District 2 Commissioner I will pledge to periodically bring the county up to date on issues your govern-
ment is considering. I will make every attempt not to deal with matters in retrospect, but be aggressive and
forthright in my dealings with public funds, employees and issues.

0'r As your District 2 Commissioner i will commit to the formulation of a county and regional road plan to accom-
modate future traffic in high growth areas and industrial zones. I will make every effort to transform our county
into a self-sustaining community. I will discourage the bedroom community concept responsible for challeng-
ing the budgets four next generation.

B I will not discourage the pursuit of government grants and low interest loans as long as the strings attached to
them do not discredit or be overly cumbersome to out citizenry. I will work to remove the Tallahassee depen-
dent terms of'a fiscally restrained area',an economically depressed community', and'a small dependent county'
These are disparaging references to me because we are a proud hard working group of people. I believe we can
and will do better.

0 I pledge to you, the people, not to have a personal agenda, but to have the best interest of the citizens of this
great county first and foremost. I will not misuse nor abuse the authority invested in me and will make ita
customary practice to abstain from voting on any issue with even the appearance of a conflict of interest. I will
protect the integrity of this office.

R I pledge to be a good steward of county resources. I will not encumber the county unnecessarily and will use our
revenues to see projects promised and started are completed on a timely basis. Per Mr. James Bennett With the
FDOT paving costs increased 45% in 2005.1 will seethe outstanding paving loan made in 2005 is either put to
use or the money returned to the lending bank.

I will not be a stand alone commissioner. I will pledge to cooperate with my fellow officials and seek an
atmosphere of teamwork. I will agree to disagree on issues, but always welcome their input on matters
and be open to choosing what is best for our people. I will not micro-manage the county employees. I
will use the management structure in the proper manner to see that administratively we accomplish
our goals.

Coach Johns thanks Kiwanis Club

Bobby Johns is excited about
being the head coach of the Baker
County Wildcat varsity football
team. Coach Johns, a graduate of
Baker County High School, told
Baker County Kiwanians at their
meeting August 17 that coming
back to his home town is a dream
come true for him.
"This is where I want to be. I
don't want to be anywhere else."
He said that being back is a
tremendous experience for.him.
He asks his players, "Ho\\ ex-
cited are the people in the com-
munity? How excited are you?
Multiply that by 100. This is how
excited I am!"
Part of his program is to instill
confidence in his pla\ ers and
"expect to win." Pla)ers post
their goals on the front of their

lockers. Coaches post their goals
on the locker room wall.
"The number one goal al-
ways every year is to win the
state championship," he told the
group. "The kids will do what
you ask them to do. They want to
be successful,"
Coach Johns praised the 21
players who did not miss a day
in the summer program. They
also came in on their own time
on Saturday mornings.
"I believe that kids do what
you expect them to do," he said,
adding that it includes doing
homework, attending practice,
being on time and Working out in
the weight room.
He cautioned that rebuilding a
program takes time.

Coach Johns mentioned the

attended during this initial year.
The high school football players
run the camp, not the coaches.

Press Sports
The Wildcats' debut under new coach Bobby Johns featured ,,
some big plays and big mistakes as most preseason games n, .
do but the performance of quarterback Carlos Holton and the
physical endurance of his team may bode well for a rebound
from last year's lost season.
The Cats' varsity lost 21-20 to West Nassau in the first half
of the game. which was played last Friday in Callahan. The
junior varsity dropped the second half. 6-0.
In an earlier interview, Johns said he doesn't like the split-
game format, and will look to get his varsity players a full-
game preseason contest next year.
The real games, however, start August 25 when the Cats
open their regular season at Middleburg. Game time is 7:30
Against the Warriors, Holton carried the ball seven times for
120 yards and completed four passes for 77 yards. The high- '
light was a 57-yard touchdown scamper featuring some nimble 11
broken field running.
Holton appeared much more comfortable in the pocket than
he did last year, and he seemed more assertive when he decid-
ed to run.
"He made one bad read on a pass that cost us a first down
on a third and six," Johns said. "But he ran the offense, got the .;
plays called."
Overall, the Cats ran 19 times for 192 ards, for a total of Quarterback Cark.. Holton
269 yards in offense.
They also got a kick-off return for a touchdown from freshman Darvin Ruise.
The score followed a long touchdown pass on what Johns said was a blown coverage. He explained

ran ILvi

that the safety was out of position because on the previous play he'd nearly come up with an intercep-
tion while pla) ing out of position.
After Ruise's return, the Cats gave up two more big scoring plays.
..y On one, they allowed a long ruh from scrimmage after lining
up incorrectly and getting blown off the line, Johns said.
S .,On the other, the Warriors' punter scooped up a bad snap and
ran it in for a touchdown.
Johns said his punt team was set to block the. kick, so when
the punter broke through, he had a relatively clear path to the
end zone.
S' Johns said the Cats as a team seemed reserved, but he didn't
know if it was just a case of first-game nerves.
"We've got to learn to have a little more confidence."
He said that watching from the sidelines, it looked like their
blocking got better as the game went on, but on film it was just
the opposite.
.-Still, the Cats were noticeably stronger as their two quarters
of play ended.
... ."We were wearing them down," Johns said, adding that had
They played a full game, it's likely the Cats would have taken
Looking forward to Middleburg, Johns said Broncos are
extremely big and physical especially on the defensive line
and at linebacker and have a couple of good skill-position
r' "They're huge, but we should be more athletic."
Middleburg's offensive coordinator is former Wildcat Andy
r .. : d Giddens, who played for coach Danny Green and adopted his
' I2 \,iards and a tOluchdown.
Wing T offense.
Johns, who coached for Green, expects Giddens "will have some wrinkles in there for us."

Golf team sc
The Baker County Wildcat
golf team is expecting big things
this year.
Already in exhibition play,,
the Cat linksters have smashed
the school record they set last
year, and Coach John Staples'
experienced team expects to be
competitive with everyone in
the district.
Last season, the Wildcats
broke the school record of 152
by one stroke. Earlier this year,
they destroyed that record by
shooting 145, although the score
isn't official since it wasn't post-
ed in regular season play. ,
Staples returns J. J. Finley,
who advanced to regionals last
season, as well as Lucas Crews,
Kirk High and Trevor Corbitt.
They also have added experi-
ence with the arrival of Trey
Echols, a transfer from Trinity
The squad is bolstered with
newcomers Ethan Campbell,
Matt Sturh and Nick Hatcher.
Staples likes what he's seen
so far as they prepare for the
season opener August 24 versus
Bradford County at the Starke
Country Club.
"We look real good," said
Staples. "I think we can have a
real successful season."
Alachua Santa Fe will again
be their top competition. The
Raiders defeated the Wildcats
in the district last season and the
Cats are "gearing up for them."

.t for opener
"Everyone in the district can
be beaten," said Staples.

What is a reve

By Jared Wilkerson
Real Estate Writer,

With the rising cost of living
creating concerns for homeowners
across the nation, more and more
families are turning to creative solu-
tions to help cover their financial
obligations. Of these, one form of
income supplementation is gaining
popularity among
aging homeow n-
ers. 'I'm speaking
of a lending prac-
tice known as a
reverse mortgage.
Fr those
who are unfa-
miliar with the
Jared Wilkerson. Realtor reverse mortgage,
it is basically 'a
method reserved for retirees which
allows them to draw equity from
their homes, without adding to
their monthly payment obligations.
Plans do varn. but the most com-
mon reverse mortgages allot a cer-
tain fixed amount paid by a lender
to a homeowner on a monthly basis,
based on the amount of equity in
the home.
A reverse mortgage can be a
good way for older homeowners
to help pay for unexpected medi-
cal expenses, do home renovations.
or simply supplement their retire-
ment income. But like just about all
other good things, there are several
aspects of the deal that you have to
watch out for.
For example, with the most com-
mon plan, the homeowner draws
their monthly income from the
reverse mortIa2e w without having to
make any payments whatsoever on
the loan for as long as they live in
the home. However, this monthly
allotment is added to the principle
balance of the loan, which accrues
interest based on an annual per-
centage rate that is usually tied to a
floating index (similar to an adjust-
able rate mortgage, or ARM). Since
there are no payments being made,
the balance continues to grow (pret-
ty quickly, actually) until the hom-
eowner sells the home, moves out,
6r unfortunately, dies. In the case
of the homeowner relocating to a
retirement home, banks usually
allow a grace period of 12 months
before considering the balance of
the loan due.
Once either of these happens, the
homeowner or their heirs will now
have to either pay off the balance
of the loan in full or sell the home.
In the event that the home is sold,
the heirs will of course receive any

It is important to note that it is
against federal regulations for the
debt (or any part of it) to pass on to
an heir. In other words. the note is
attached to the property, not the per-

es, there is a line item called a "non-
recourse" clause. This

sort of like insur-
ance against the pos-
sibility of the market tanking during
the life of the reverse mortgage.
Another potentially "bad" aspect
of the reverse mortgage is that the
loan origination costs of starting one
up can be quite atrocious. I can't
cite specifics here because these
costs do vary a little from lender to
lender and plan to plan, but since the
origination fees go directly on top of
the balance, homeowners may end
up owing thousands of dollars on
a loan from which they have yet to
receive any money.
All things considered, the reverse
mortgage is still often times a good
option for allowing retirees on lim-
ited incomes to maintain their inde-
pendence. For those who might
consider obtaining a reverse mort-
gage, here's the basic requirements

Cedar Creek, the first of what
now appears to be several mega-de-
velopments queued up to enter Bak-
er County, has tweaked its mission
a bit. and is emphasizing the "active
adult" housing market.
"'Originally. our presentation
wasn't as age-restricted weighted,"
representative Tony Robbins told
county commissioners at a work-
shop Monday.
Studies by the Adrian Develop-
ment Group show a growing market
for retiring baby boomers.
Age-restricted housing is typical-
ly for those 55 and older, and usual-
ly excludes children and grandchil-
dren except for short-term visits.
Robbins, a senior planner with
Prosser Hallock, asked for the
workshop to update the county on
the Cedar Creek's progress.
The application/approval process
for a Development of Regional Im-
pact can take from 12 to 18 months.

and nonprofit organizations; fed-
erally-insured reverse mortgages,
which are known as Home Equity
Conversion Mortgages (HECMs),
and are backed by the U. S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD); and propri-
etary reverse mortgages, which are
private loans that are backed by the
companies that develop them.
Single-purpose reverse mort-
gages are the cheapest, but they are
also the most highly regulated and
most difficult to obtain. As their
name implies, the money 'for them
can only be used for one specific
reason, such as home repairs, medi-
cal expenses, or to pay for property
taxes. Since they are provided by
local level government agencies,
there is usually a cap to the num-

owner's equity).
HECMs cost a good deal
more than single-purpose
reverse mortgages, but the
money can be used for any-
thing and payout plans can
be based on either monthly
allotments, open credit line
reserves to be taken when
needed, or a combination
of both. They also allow
for variable loan periods,
which can have an effect on
the amount of interest that
accrues on loans once they
are no longer open for with-
drawal. Since they are feder-
ally regulated, HECMs often
allow a smaller percentage of
the equity to be made avail-
able for withdrawal.
The proprietary loans are
by far the most expensive to
originate, but they do offer
much more. flexibility, in
regard to payout methods and
the amount of equity made
available. If the home in
question is actually a pretty
expensive place (based on its
market value), then it's prob-
ably better to get this type of
reverse mortgage. Basically,
it will be useful to the hom-
eowner for a longer period of
time than the alternate mineth-
The requirements for these
loans do depend on the lend-
er originating them, but here
are some basic requirements
that seem to be true across
the board -
1. The homeowner must be
at least 62 years of age.
2. The owner must o\vn the
home outright. In many
cases, a homeowner can
still get a reverse mort-
gage if they haven't quite
paid off their original
mortgage on the home.
However, the principle
balance of the mortgage
must be at a low enough
level that it can easily
be paid off from reverse
mortgage funds as soon
as the reverse mortgage
is originated.
3. The owner must cur-
rently live in the home as
their primary residence.
4. Prior to accepting the
reverse mortgage, the

qualified person regard-

to obtaining this type of
5.. Many types of homes
can qualify, even to
include condominiums
and mobile homes, but
the best bets are single
family residences or
duplexes and quad-plex-
es, so long as the owner
lives in one of the units.
Once originated, reverse
mortgages also have several
operating rules that are com-
mon to most plans, such as:
1. Since the homeowner
still holds title to the
property, they are still
required to pay for all
of the home's operat-
ing expenses; such as
utilities, homeowner's
insurance, and property
taxes. Not keeping up
with these obligations
can, in fact, lead to the
loan amount coming due
2. The money paid to a
homeowner on these
programs is tax-free, for
income purposes.
3. Interest accrued on the
principle loan amount is
NOT tax deductible until
the loan is paid off in
4. Loan programs which
are set up similar to home
equity lines of credit may
actually charge servicing
fees (which are added to
the principle balance)
for each time that money
is pulled out for use.
Hopefully this has helped
to clear up some of the mys-
tery associated with reverse
mortgages. Although they
do have a great deal to offer
to older homeowners, reverse
mortgages really should
be used as a last resort. I
only say that because they
can potentially take a huge
chunk out of the peace of
mind that comes from know-
ing that you own your home
free and clear. Plus, it does
force the "what should we
do now" issue for heirs who
might have otherwise inher-


" .:';.. i

ited a property for their own
use. If the heirs would have
sold anyway, the burden of
the reverse mortgage forces
their hand and removes some
of their negotiating strength
by putting a timeline on that
sale, which is never a good
position from which to start.

DRI looks at tapping

new market of 55+

(From Page 1)
adults could tax the county's health care facilities.
Cedar Creek has plans for just one clinic, but a representa-
tive of the developer offered a variation on the Field of Dreams
strategy if you build it, they will come, and if they come, so
will medical facilities.
The clinic is part of about 500,000 square feet of commercial
space, mostly located in an "integrated downtown" area and on
the perimeter of the development.
Robbins also said Cedar Creek will have a college campus
located on its outskirts. A representative of the developer said
they are currently talking with a college, although he wouldn't
say which one.

Ace Hardware store, a long-time fixture on Maccleriny Av-
enue, is looking to move a few miles to the west .
The new location is just east of Wildcat Drive on property
owned Judge Ray Gatlin, who is asking for a rezoning of prop-
erty he owns just east of Wildcat Drive.
His representative, Hugh Fish, said the store including
parking, a lumber yard and garden center will occupy the
8.9-acre parcel.
If the commission 'approves the rezoning, the purchase
should close in October, with construction starting by the end
of the year.
The property is adjacent to the in-progress Greystone devel-
Gatlin also owns the parcel between Wildcat Drive and the
proposed Ace Hardware.
Fish said there are discussions with businesses that may want
to build there.
Associate school superintendent Glenn McKendree told the
commission that the school district is concerned about traffic
off Madison Street into Ace Hardware.,
Fish said only delivery trucks would access the store from
Madison, and only during times when students and teachers
weren't arriving or leaving Baker County High School and
Westside Elementary.

After about a quarter-century in business, the owners of
Day's Pizza are selling the restaurant located in the Food Lion
shopping center.
George and Helen Day expect a quick sale and are looking
forward to an active retirement.
