Mr. Dopson said the hole in the old-style transit

The two-member Baker County legislative delegation
held its annual pre-session hearing at the county
commission room the afternoon of November 2. At
right, Representative Aaron Bean and Senator Nancy
Argenziano listen to County Commission Chairman
Alex Robinson, who like other speakers first thanked
the lawmakers for last year's largesse, then lauriched
into a laundry list of fund requests for next year. Mr:
Robinson sought help on grants for improvements
and an addition to the Taber Library, for improve-
ments to the county's nine fire stations, help with
seed money for a new county jail and to widen busy
SR 23A in west Macclenny. Sheriff Joey Dobson, who
next year will head the Florida Sheriffs Association,
mentioned the state's top law officers are seeking
codes identifying sex offenders on driver's licenses
and a bill to ban under-21 patrons from establish-
ments that serve alcohol. He alsp sought money
for the proposed new jail that will house federal
detainees in addition to local inmates. Vice-mayor
". Vernon Bennett represented Macclenny with a bid
for $950,000 in state money fused into a proposed
$4.7 million sewer and water treatment facility.
School Superintendent Paula Barton gushed with
praise for the lawmakers securing $31.8 million
.in funding this year for Baker county schools. She
sought support for earlier starting dates in August

, Bean also represents four other Florida Crown coun-
ties; Sen. Argenziano 13 counties.

Emergency Operations Center
on US 90 in west Macclenny.
Sheriff Joey Dobson urged
in an August 14, 2006 meeting
that emergency management be
merged into his department for a
number of reasons, among them
the fact that BCSO has the largest
number of trained first-respond-
ers and most of the equipment
needed for disaster and emergen-
Sheriff Dobson also justified
re-assignment because much of
the emergency management in-
dustry has shifted from natural
disaster relief to responding to
security threats and terrorism.
The 911 emergency number
and locator system has been su-
pervised in recent years by Nick
Giles, who like Mr. Clark is
based at the EOC and is retiring.
The county will hire a new fire
and rescue director supervising
Chief Richard Dolan and a res-
cue chief yet to be named. The
EOC will continue to house po-
lice, fire and rescue dispatching,
and that remains under BCSO
The changeover was approved
November 2 in the regular meet-
ing of the commission that had
been moved up because Tuesday
was election day.
At the same meeting, the com-
mission approved a union con-
tract with rescue workers calling
for a 3.1 percent pay hike.
The one-year pact also re-
quires employees to obtain cer-
tification as paramedics within
two years or resign.
In other business, the, com-
mission will hold a workshop
the afternoon of November 21 to
examine a proposed resolution
creating a non-profit corporation
to handle issuance of bonds, con-
struction and operation of a pro-

trance is thb only one used by the public and has two signs warning
about contraband and penalties (see photo above).

the state bar in July, 2005.

Some people have more moneN than sense. I've
known that for a long time, but things are constantly
happening to bear it out.
The other day, my library partner Lil Smith
showed me an article about so-called hobby or life-
style farms. In other words, yuppie-types with a lot
of money and nothing to spend it on buy a farm.
Well not exactly a farm. -- ----
It's more like a theme park.
It looks like a farm. It smells M Y S

the work involved with farming. THE i
Along with your 'hobby farm, you
have ex\er. thing needed to run it. ROBERT
So on the weekend, Chad and -
Muffy leave the big city %here he is an investment
banker and she runs an interior design firm, and
head out to the farm. They walk around their apple
orchards, they stop to stroke the mane of one of their
horses. They sample the fresh corn from the fields.
They just don't have to pick the apples, shovel out
the barn or plant the corn.
In fact, they don't really have to do anything on
this Green Acres. It's all bought and paid for. Along
with the farm you get the farmhands to work it.
Sounds like something from yuppie Connecticut
or the San Francisco area? Nope. One of the biggest
investors in hobby farming is Jacksonville's St. Joe
Company, which has an 850,000 acre development
eight miles from Tallahassee called White Fence
St. Joe calls it "new ruralism." There are over
60 "farmsteads" ranging in acreage from 3-10 and
costing between $250,000-$300,000. All the clus-
ters are connected by tractor trails. They got the
idea from golfing communities connected by golf
So, if you have ever felt the lure of the rural life,
if you wanted to be Eddie Arnold and Eva Gabor
and have your own Green Acres, somebody has
given you that chance.
I think that the St. Joe Company could take it a
little further, learning a thing or two from the Dis-
ney people. These yuppie farmers could feel a lot
more a part of the whole farming experience with a
few tips from Walt Disney World.
In the apple orchard for example, hidden speak-
ers pipe in "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree With
Anyone Else But Me." As for the majority of the
trees, brimming with lovely red apples, on closer
inspection you see that the trees are fiberglass and
the apples plastic. Only the first few trees are real

In the stables you'll never be in danger of being
kicked by your horse Gary. He will always nuzzle
you when you come into the barn and never nudge
your hand for sugar cubes. Gary is also robotic.
In the quaint farmhouse, it always smells like cin-
namon. Hidden vents with small fans blow across
fragrance vats in every room. The quaint wood
stove in the kitchen is really made by KitchenAide
and in the living room, that Andrew Wyeth painting
hides a 60-inch plasma television.
.Why stop with fake farms. We could do ranch-

Don't worry about stepping in the cow paddies,

another, consuming enough
turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce
and pumpkin pie to feed an army
of biblical proportions.
I'm tempted to try something
different this year a goose or a
duck provided I can determine
the proper way to cook the bird. I
cooked a turkey for the first time
last year and it wasn't nearly the
mystery or challenge I always
thought it would be.
SI got the rightpan and followed
the directions and it turned out
fine. Either that, or everyone
was just so hungry they would
have eaten wood chips and rice
and been happy. I like to think it
was because the bird turned out
juicy and palatable.
The real challenge for me
as far as holiday food goes is
mincemeat pie. As a child, I
remember being served this
strange concoction and having
my tongue twist up against the
roof of my mouth the same
way it did if I bit into an unripe
It tasted like cough syrup and
I couldn't imagine why anyone
could ever have thought such a
thing was actually good. It had
meat and fat in it, which I couldn't
fathom, but that was before I
learned of the commonality of
meat pies in earlier ages.
Actually, our ancestors made
mince meat as a method of
preserving meat with alcohol
(brandy was popular) and sugar
and spices instead of smoking or
Mutton was traditional and
even whale meat. If you used
a goose you used every part of
it and the bird fat was used to
make the crust. In colonial times,
the fat was precious folks who
performed manual labor from
sunup to sundown needed the
extra calories and nothing was
wasted. You also couldn't just
run down to the Winn-Dixie for
a can of Crisco.
Mince meat pie is not
nearly as popular as it once
was and only rarely makes an
appearance on contemporary
holiday tables. But it does pop
up once in a while and when it
does I still involuntarily shudder
if it crosses my personal radar
Today the mince filling is
usually made from a store-
bought mix and doesn't contain
any meat, but the ingredient list
is likely to feature suet.
Suet? Oh, yuck. Suet is
grease. Suet is what you feed
woodpeckers if you live in a
cold climate. I guess mince meat
pie is one traditional food I just
can't warm up to.
I've got a Mrs. Smith's Deep
Dish Cherry Pie happily waiting
in the freezer. Bon appetite!
School Bus Safety Week was
a few weeks ago, and it was a
nice surprise to see bus drivers
getting treats of all kinds when
they arrived to drop children off
at schools. It is very rare for bus
drivers to be recognized.
The observance lasted all week,
and Friday we were honored with
a breakfast reception at the PreK/
Kindergarten Center. It may not
seem like a lot, but the bus driv-
ers in this county transport over

week have to do with it?
There was no sign or notice in-
forming customers to this effect,
and instead of trying to come to a
solution, the owner called police.
I have never passed a bad check
there or anywhere else, and I re-
mained calm as I tried to resolve
this unbelievable situation.
When it seemed there was no
alternative but to wait until BCSO
arrived, a man I don't know paid
the remaining $14 (the gas came
to $44 and I had $30) and he left
before I could get his name and
address to repay him. He didn't
even get his change.
Sir, whoever you are I truly
thank you for sparing me any
further embarrassment, and one
day I will see you again (you can
bet it won't be at Fastway!) and I
hope you'll give me the opportu-
nity to thank and repay you.
As for my mother and I, we'll
be spending gas and cigarette
money at a store that greets you
with a smile instead of threats,
where you know the check cash-
ing policies before you end up in
situations like this.

Glen Council delays decision on
placement office house downtown
BY JIM McGAULEY
The Glen St. Mary Town
Council pondered in repetitive
fashion for an hour and a half the
evening of November- 6 before
tabling a decision on permitting
an ice vending house at the main
intersection of US 90 and SR
The board's decision will like-
ly pivot on whether the current
owner of the lot agrees to get rid
of two other business enterprises
on the property, and whether pe-,
titioner Keith Davis can alter the.
colors of the mostly white, cool-
er-type rectangular structure.
Three council members at
the end of the meeting appeared
to be leaning toward rejecting
the portable structure because it
conflicts with the Envision Glen
study that was incorporated into
the town's zoning code in 2004.
Councilman Woody Crew' s,
the most vocal of the five-mem-
ber board that evening, said he
thinks the rules should be flex-
ible so as to not discourage busi-
ness growth in Glen St. Mary. He
and Councilman Dicky Foster
indicated they would allow the
ice house if the lot on the north-
west corner is used only for that,
The pre-fab building is dressed,
up with a brick facade at ground
level and the building set-backs
Mr. Davis, who said he had
seven such buildings in north
Florida and south Georgia, in-
cluding the one in Macclenny
on South 6th, agreed to make
cosmetic changes. He doubted
the Georgia-based manufacturer
of Ice House America buildings
will deviate from a patented
white 8"X24" structure % ith red
and blue lettering and penguins.
White buildings conflict with
the Glen plan, which also bans
strong accent colors like the red
The surface also appears to
conflict with Enx ision Glen %with
its aluminum material fashioned
to look like wood siding.
Mayor Juanice -Padgett, who
called the special meeting this
week, repeatedly urged council
members to adhere to existing
zoning codes, including Envi-
sion Glen with its emphasis on
stylized architecture and neutral
colors. The plan was the work
of 20-plus citizens, officials and
planners, and urges the small
town motif be preserved.
Councilman Crews, who vot-
ed .to adopt it, nonetheless said
repeatedly he believes the code
is too stringent. He said he hadn't
paid close attention to the one in
Macelenny, yet he believes the
wood-like simulation side walls
bring the building into compli-
"It doesn't look like T-111 to
me!" exclaimed Mayor Padgett,,
who said she physically inspect-
ed the wall surface of the Mac-
There was also conflicting
data on how large the proposed
site is, thus whether the setback

rules could be met. Mr. Davis
said he will check' with owner
Eston Monds at mid-week, and
urged the council to re-convene
this week because he claims he
has one of the $92,000 machine-
houses on order.
If Mr. Monds agrees to the
council's demand on clearing out
other business interests (an infor-
mal used car and golf kart sales
lot and on-again, off-again car
wash), it could meet as early as
Thursday evening of this week.
Councilman Crew s literally
changed his mind and took both
sides of the debate during the
lengthy discussion, Early on. N rr.

the other commercial uses on the

"The biggest question is, the
clutter over there and %whether it
goes along with En\ ision Glen,''
declared Councilman Crews.
"We want a fashionable look
dow ntow n. w ant it to look nice."
An hour later, Mr. Crews an-
nounced he opposed wording
and provisions of the document,
though acknowledged when re-
minded by the mayor that he
supported it. He claimed he did
so because the rest of the council
favored it. ,
Councilman Dickie Foster is
the only current councilman not
on the board then, and indicated
he believes Envision Glen is too
Councilman Perry Hays noted

Mr. Davis said the unit's
vending front complete with a
canvas awning will face south,
and insisted the insulated struc-
ture could not be covered either
with wood or stucco to disguise
Several times it was brought'
up that the council allowed con-
struction of the Barn convenience
store on US 90 in the east down-
town though it is a metal build-`
ing. The owners agreed to adorn
its front and make other changes
at the council's behest.

Hle wasn't a preacher or a teacher.
He wasn't on a nM boards or com-

church in his own unique way.
He made sure that the sanctuary
Sunday School class was prepared
for the teacher every Sunday.
He made sure that there was al-
ways a cup of water for the pastor
and other ministers at the pulpit.
He was a cup bearer.
He and I prayed together every

CATS SINK PIRATE'S SHIP 50-6
BY BOB GERARD
It might have been a cold
night for football in Femandina
Beach. Fans might have been
bundled up and shivering in the
40-degree temperatures. But the
Wildcat football team came out
of the locker room smoking hot.
The Wildcats seared the win-
less Fernandina Beach Pirates
and left them panting for breath
after a 50-6 branding on Friday
night. The win raised the Wild-
cats to a 5-5 season and left the
Pirates shaking their head after
an 0-10 fall campaign. Many of
the Wildcat faithful in attendance
in Fernandina sympathized with
the Pirates. It doesn't take a long
memory to remember the final
game of last season and the way
For the Wildcats it was an
emotional night. Two Cat run-
ners capped off 1000(-yard rush-
ing seasons. Another got enough
real estate for 500 yards. Seniors
stood at the center of the field
and openly cried after their final
game as a Wildcat.
Many fans saw the pasting as
a taste of things to come and will
be avidly looking for the start
of next Near's football season.
Coach Bobby Johns and his as-
sistants know the off-se-ason \\ill
be a time for a lot of work if the
Wildcats are to fulfill the prom-
ise of next season.
It didn't take long for the
Wildcats to get on, the score-
board. Lucious "Pooh" Lee
knew he needed a little. over 50
yards for his 1000-yard season
and got most of it in a 44-yard
touchdown scamper soon after
kickoff. The conversion made it
a quick 8-0.
Darvin Ruise got the ball right
back for the Wildcats, picking up
a fumble recovery and racing 41
yards for the score. The conver-
sion failed but the Cats held a 14-
Fernandina knew that it would
have to play error-free football to
escape, a winless season, but it
wasn't happening. They fumbled
again on the second play after
the kickoff, giving the Wildcats
the ball on the 29. Lee ran it to
the 20 and two plays later, Greg
Williams pushed the ball across
from the 5-yard line of the score,
Carlos Holton ran around the left
end into the comer of the end-
zone for the two-point 'conver-
sion to give Baker County a 22-0
By this point, fans on both
sides of the stadium sensed a
blowout. The Wildcat fans were
in party mode, and for the Pirate.
fans it looked like more of the
To their credit, the Pirates
never gave up. But the Wildcat
defense harassed the Femandina
all game long, shutting down the
running game, sacking the quar-
terback and %wearing his recei-N
ers like a cheap suit.
The Wildcats got the ball ont
their 20 yard line on the next pos-
session and proceeded to drive
80 yards for the score. Carlos
Holton needed over 100 yards for
his 1000-yard season and the ju-
nior quarterback was running the
ball with abandon. Between Lee,
Johns and Holton they steadily
moved across midfield and into
Pirate territory. Johns capped the
impressive drive off with a six-
yard rush for the score. The con-
version was good for a 30-0. .
The Wildcats scored in about
every way possible. After an in-
terception by Brandon Harrell
gave the Cats back possession,
they moved the ball into position
and Holton dropped back to pass.
He found Ridge Sweat open and
sailed the ball into the receiver's
hands for a 17-yard touchdown
pass. At that point Matt Peebles
trotted on the field to try a point

Reviewing Coach Johns' inaugural year at BCHS
BY BOB GERARD
In his opening season as head
football coach at BCHS, Bobby
Johns experienced a first. This
season was the first time in his
coaching carrier that he had two
Lucious LeeandCarlos Holton
both passed the 1000 milestone
on the final game of the season
last Friday at Fernandina. Lee's
112-yard rushing night gave him
1062 on the season. Holton's
192-yard game gave him 1015
for the season. Chaz Johns had
82 yards on for the Femrnandina
game and gave him 534 yards
from the fullback position.
The prolific running game was
one of a number of successes for
the season. Coming off an 0-10
mark last year, the 5-5 season
spoke of a lot of improvement as
the year progressed.
As usual, the running game
dominated the statistics. The
Wildcats ran the ball 418 times
for 2790 yards for a 6.7 yards
per carry average. They doubled
their opponent's output on the
ground. The BCHS rushing de-
fense allowed only 1091 yards
rushing and 33 of the Wildcats'
37 touchdowns came from rush-
ing the ball.
As well as the ground game
was operating, Carlos Holton
didn't have to throw the ball a
lot. He passed 110 times,for 40
completions and 475 yards. He
had a 36% accuracy rate and four

will also spend a lot of time on

shovel during a large disturbance
on Grissholm St. in west Mac-
Deputy Mark, Hall estimated
100 people had congregated
about 5:00 when he arrived at
the scene, and several clusters of
them were fighting. He broke up
fights using pepper spray, then

Ms. Farmer was treated at
Fraser Hospital for a bruise and
Ms. Moore was checked at the
emergency room and later jailed.
Sheriff's department policy man-

anyone shot with a Taser.
Ms. Moore also told police
she was involved in a similar dis-
turbance on October 27 but fled
when deputies arrived.
Deputy Hall said numerous
participants and witnesses to the
November 1 disturbance said
they would give statements at the
sheriff's annex but they never

In other arrests, Yolanda
Hadley, 31, of Macclenny was
charged with cutting Kenny De-

beer bottle during an argument at
a ATNI the evening of November
Deputy Gavin Sweat said he
responded to a disturbance call
at the Fraser Hospital emergen-

The BCHS Wildcat cross
country team missed out on its
chance to advance to the state
finals by placing llth at the Re-
gional meet Saturday at Bartram
Trail. It was an extremely diffi-
cult region, with ten of the state's
top 12 cross country teams repre-
sented, so an 11th place finish is
more than respectable+
The finish caps a very strong
season for the Wildcat runners.
Coach Charles Ruise's team got
better and lowered their times at
a consistent rate all season long.
Luke Kennedy again was the
team's top runner at the region-
S als, finishing in 17:33. Kennedy's
finish missed qualifying him for
the state finals by just two slots.
Timmy Mason finished with
an 18:57, Evan Ward 19:18, TJ
Mosely 20:23, Allen Luffman
20:29, Blake Rowan 22:05 and
Corey Cavanaugh 22:32. The
young team graduates only two
seniors, so Ruise. is enthusiastic
about next year.
"It was a great season and the
kids came out and showed great
character and heart," said Ruise.
"We're proud of the guys. for
hanging in and accomplishing
our goals and more. We're look-
ing forward to an exciting season
