'No shows' at the


per vote soared to $26.20!!


Last week's first primary special election
marked the worst turnout in history based on the
number of registered Baker County voters.
It also will stand at least for a few weeks
- as the most expensive election in history if one
divides the cost of putting it on by the 673 voters
who participated.
That comes to $26.20 per vote. You read that
right.
Elections Supervisor Nita Crawford tallied up
expenses leading up to and including election day
on June 5 to decide the party nominees for District
3 in the Florida Senate.The total so far: $17,630.24,
and that figure could inch a bit higher.
And it's not over yet. Republican Charles Dean,
who got trounced here by Dennis Baxley but won
over the 13-county district, faces off against Dem-
ocrat Suzan Franks on June 26.
Cost of that election will be in the same neigh-
borhood, and because both are special elections
brought on by the resignation of Sen. Nancy Ar-
genziano, they will be paid for by the county com-
mission which in turn expects to be re-paid next
budget year by the state.
The irony is the two elections this month would

The Baker County Grand
Jury will meet Friday afternoon
to consider the case against
Brock R. Morris, the 31-year-
old Glen St. Mary man in coun-
ty jail without bond and charged
with the June 1 beating death of
a teenage girl from Yulee, Fla.
Chief sheriff's investigator
Chuck Brannan is expected to
be the principle witness against
Mr. Brock, a career criminal
who has been to state prison
twice. He reportedly confessed
to raping and beating Hope
Norman, 16, at his trailer home

that morning.

cost roughly the same whether 673 voted or
10,673.
Ms. Crawford's $371,755 budget for this fiscal
year had a contingency of only $1000, and rou-
tinely does not hold reserve funds for emergencies
like this.
A glance at the cost breakdown (see accompa-
nying illustration) reflects the obvious: poll worker
salaries, advertising, special phone lines and signs.
Just under a third of the total ($5200) was to print
paper ballots for every one of Baker County's
12,284 registered voters.
Why would that be, you ask? The state, skit-
tish about Florida's past woes (remember hanging
chads?) says you have to have paper ballots for
everyone just in case they are requested. No
matter that most voters are quite happy with the
touch-screen system now in use.
To avoid yet another, special election later in
2007, Ms. Crawford says she suggested to state
Rep. Aaron Bean of Fernandina that any refer-
endum on changing the Florida Homestead Ex-
emption be postponed until next January 29, the
recently moved-up date of the state's presidential
primary.

Protecting property, and

topics June 7 at the FireWise

Neighbor


says jail site


selection


kept quiet

BY ANDREW BARE
Press Staff
In many ways, Jessica Kit-
trell is the exact kind of per-
son Baker County wants to at-
tract as it moves forward with
growth and development.
She's 26 years old and edu-
cated at the University of Flor-
ida.
She teaches at Baker County
Middle School.
She bought a home in the
new Timberlane subdivision in
March 2006, and says she en-
joys sitting on the back porch
with her children and watching
the local wildlife.
And if the real estate market
wasn't so cold, she'd have that
new house up for sale.
That's because Jessica Kit-
trell's home is adjacent to the
proposed site for Baker Coun-
ty's new, 500-bed jail. And
that jail does not fit into Ms.
Kittrell's vision of her family's
.future.
The Baker Correctional
Development Corporation, a
non-profit formed in late 2006
to build the facility, announced
May 23 that it was pursuing
the purchase of a 90-acre tract
of land at the corer of SR-121
and SR-228. This came as a
surprise to Ms. Kittrell and her
husband Jason, who works,
appropriately enough, at a Co-
lumbia County prison.
"No one in here was ever
specifically told -about [the
jail] going up back here," she
said. "We were told, and my
husband and I, specifically,
when we bought this house,
we asked, 'What's going to
go back there?' And they said.
.'Nothing, it's land-locked.'
"I didn't move here to be be-
hind a jail. My husband works
at a prison, and he leaves it at
work. He drives 30 minutes
to get there. And I don't want
that. I don't want that element
in my backyard."
Ms. Kittrell has strong
words for the BCDC, and says
she feels the corporation has
been "under-handed" in its
dealing with neighbors and has
"railroaded" the process, Ac-
cording to her, poor attendance
by neighbors unhappy with
the prospect of a new jail in
the neighborhood at a meeting
held in May by the corporation
was a result of BCDC not pro-
viding proper public notice.
Baker County Sheriff Joey
Dobson, who is on the cor-
poration's board of directors,
disputes the notion that the
BCDC has been secretive in its
dealings.
The not-for-profit spent sev-
eral months negotiating with
the owners of the property
north of Macclenny that is now
targeted, but asked local media
to keep both the location of the
property and the identities of
the owners secret. The media,
including The Baker County
Press, complied with that re-

in a boggy part of a fence field.
The accused said he dragged her
body from his residence several
hundred yards east of the grave.
The 21-member jury is ex-

The panel is expected to con-

to the killing, including the fact
that Ms. Norman was left at the
trailer alone with Mr. Brock fol-
lowing an argument with his
wife Amanda, 31, who accused
him of flirting with the teen.
Prior to that, Hope Norman
had been brought to the residence
by her 36-year-old mother Betty
and an acquaintance, Carlin Mo-

the accused. According to both
Mr. and Mrs. Morris, the trio
had been drinking the evening of

The attack occurred allegedly
after the teen refused to have sex
with Mr. Morris, and after the
victim's mother and Mr. Mobley
left the residence, ostensibly to
purchase cigarettes. :
,The mother was estranged
from her husband in Nassau
County and both she and the vic-
tim had been staying in Baker
County a matter of days.
Also due to be presented to the
jury are preliminary results of an
autopsy last week in Gainesville.
The medical examiner reported-
ly ruled a severe beating was the
apparent cause of death, and not
necessarily strangulation as first
reported. Initial evidence was
inconclusive on the nature of the
sexual assault, though Mr. Mor-
ris told sheriff's investigators he
raped the victim then killed her
to cover the crime.

The subject of Andrew's article is not
the only person in the north Macclenny
neighborhood who is going to feel this
way. The word is spreading, and the
county can expect to hear from them.
Whether a jail ends up there or not, or
whether the county goes through with the
present plan to spend up to $45 million
building a facility big enough to make

A jail that size is a textbook example
of the time-honored NIMBY (not in my
back yard) situation, particularly in light
of the fact it is bordered on three sides
(possibly all four later) by residential en-
claves.
The non-profit corporation set up to
shepherd the project through the initial
stages, the financing and eventually as an
oversight entity is in a bit of a box itself.

The subject of this week's article be-

It's not totally fair to blame that on the
sheriff or the non-profit; it's actually more
our fault since we agreed not to publicize
the north Macclenny site possibility until
further talks with the owners and envi-
ronmental testing were complete.
It's a touchy area and the newspaper
takes its share of the blame.
From here on, however, it's out in the
open. Let the games begin!


Recipefor every recipe:


just follow the directions


A co-worker recently gave me
a cooking tip that will probably
prove to be one of the more use-
ful bits of information regarding
my future culinary adventures.
The tip is this: follow the direc-
tions.
I took it at face value. Every-
thing she bakes and brings to
the office for us to enjoy is deli-
cious. On many occasions, I've
had to eat salad for a couple days

I wanted a homemade cake
and it had to be chocolate. Noth-
ing else was going to do. I head-
ed to the store and loaded my
cart with quality cake paps, but-

break room.
I've lost count of the times I've
made the statement: "Francis, if
you keep this up none of us are
going to fit through the front
door."
She laughs and makes light of
her talent, humbly accepting my
compliments. I finally asked her
what.her secret is. She waved me
off.
"I just follow the directions,"
she told me. "Do exactly what it
says and don't change anything.
If it calls for two teaspoons of
vanilla then use two teaspoons,
not two and a half. If it says bake
for 30 minutes, then bake for 30
minutes not 25 or 35."
These guidelines are proving
to be accurate. I've been gun shy


- all the good
stuff. With the
purchase of
a small hand
mixer, I was
pretty much set


to go.
I used the recipe on the cocoa
box and followed the directions.
After greasing the pans the way
I'd watched my Mom do count-
less times, I spooned a little flour
into each and tapped it around to
coat the bottom and sides. Then
into the preheated oven went the
pans of batter. I set the timer and
quickly washed up the bowls.
Last, I gave myself the distinct
pleasure of licking the batter
from the mixer blades, an expe-
rience I haven't had since child-
hood. It was heavenly. I knew
that later I would get to repeat it
when I mixed up the icing.
I read a book for the 30 min-
utes the cake was required to
bake and silently prayed it would


turn out alright.
The buzzer startled me out of
reverie and I quickly removed
the pans to a trivet on the coun-
ter to cool.
Later, it was time to undertake
the homemade frosting, the part
that scared me most. The butter
was melted, the confectioners
sugar dumped in with the co-
coa, vanilla and milk. Medium
speed, the recipe said, not low,
not high medium. It quickly
turned stiff and I began to panic


and grabbed the cocoa can. Add
more milk, if needed.
I added a dollop, then another
and the icing quickly thinned
to just the right consistency for
mixing. In a couple minutes it
whipped up just right.
I frosted my first cake and
stood back. Perfection. I couldn't
wait to take it to work where the
entire thing disappeared in a
single day. I made another for
a church luncheon and it disap-
peared in a single hour. I'm not


Julia Child or Martha Stewart,
but I was just as proud.
If you are skittish about bak-
ing (or anything else) you might
try the time honored, fail safe
approach recommended by Ms.
Francis who can even take zuc-
chini and turn it into what seems

Italians and their wheels


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
Greetings from Bella Italia.
This is your world-wide rov-
ing reporter giving you all the
scoop from the land of Fiats and
gelato. It's our 25th wedding an-
niversary and my wife and I de-
cided to go on the grand tour.
I really have loved my time
in Italy. I was a little unsure, as
I've never been an Italophile. I
love England and France, but I
wasn't totally convinced about
Italy.
Boy was I wrong.
Venice is amazing and Ital-
ians are so very different from
Americans. That is, when you
can find them. Venice might as
well be the USA from all the
English I've heard spoken.
The fabled city is crawling
with tourists. This shouldn't
bother me, because after all, I
am a tourist, but I like to think
I'm not the loud, pushy Ameri-
can tourist I literally keep bump-
ing into. If you travel abroad,
it's pretty easy to understand
why American tourists get such
a bad rap.
We were traveling with loud,
drunk, obnoxious Americans
from Louisiana who, when they
weren't singing at the top of
their lungs, were complaining


about all things Italian. If that's
the way you feel, go to Epcot.
One of the things I love about
traveling: I love to see the cars
that people drive. Italians basi-
cally drive what to Americans
look like toy cars. They also
drive them very fast and without
any road signs or driving rules
that I can manage to make out.
Since gas prices top $6 a gal-
lon here, you won't find any gas
hogs in Italy. Certainly the cars
in the cities are so small as to
be funny. I tower above the Fiat
Panda, one of the most popular
cars in Italy. The Panda is the
size of a sardine can, and claims
to be able to seat four, midgets
perhaps.
The Smart car has been
around for two decades and is
the weirdest looking one on the
road. It seats two and will be in-
troduced into the USA next year.
I don't know how popular it will
be, however. It could easily fit
into the back seat of a Ford Ex-
pedition.
I also ran across some not-so-
humorous cars. I spotted a cou-
ple of Maseratis guaranteed. to
make the blood boil. These sleek
sports cars make a Corvette look
laughable. My son Dylan also
pointed out a red convertible
Ferrari that was jaw dropping.
No matter how small the cars,
however, Italians drive their Fi-
ats and Lancias and Smart cars
as if they were Lamborghinis on
the Monza test track. I've driven


in NYC and Chicago, but driv-
ing in Italy has to be a night-
mare.
No one pays attention to road
signs in the least. They also act
as if they are in a video game
and you get points for scaring
the wits out of unsuspecting
tourists. You'd better not jay
walk or you are fair game. If you
walk across the street in your as-
signed area a striped walkway,
you are fine if not, you are a
target.
Then there are the motor
scooters. These are not to be
confused with the motorcycles.
In Italy, there are thousands
of motor scooters. Vespa and
Piagia drivers truly believe that
they own the road. You can be
in the middle of a traffic jam and
they will drive on the sidewalk,
between cars and defy any traffic
rules of which I'm convinced
that Italy has none.
If they are bad in the city,
motorcyclists are even worse on
the superhighways. Italy has a
superhighway called the Auto-
strada. Think of it as interstates
without speed limits. Most Ital-
ian cars can go very fast, but that
doesn't apply to Ducati motor-
cycles. Ducatis are the Lambo-
rghini of motorcycles and their
owners, like Vespa owners in
the city, are convinced that the
road is there for them alone.
Our tour bus was traveling at a
good 70 mph clip when a Ducati
went by him like he was stand-


.41 ll ,I t I kl l I i I Ilc' I th *q -,t Fh'? c ell Fiofe il C 5 1) 1 the P,..pw I i tM ii2Pv i I


ing still. He must have been go-
ing 140 mph. If that wasn't bad
enough, he did so between two
cars. He didn't pass them, so to
speak, he split them in half.
At first, I thought that had
to be a fluke, but it happened a
dozen times on our road trip out


of Venice. Our tour bus driver,
Mario yes, that was really his
name just shook his head.
As we travel, I'll keep you
filled in on other sights and
sounds from Bella Italia.

But Sheriff Dobson says the
anonymity was crucial for the
family that owns the property,
and the corporation didn't want
to negatively affect the land's
value if it turned out to be inap-
propriate for

"It was not
in any way un-
der-handed,"
he said in a i
telephone in-
terview this :
week. "We did
not know if the

"Our records of escapes are

"The new facility is totally se-
cure. The residents are going to
be safer now than they've been
before."
Part of her worry is the prox-
imity of proposed jail, but she is
also concerned about the facili-
ty's size. The jail, which is slat-
ed to contain 512 beds, would
be substantially larger than the
current facility and would be


filled out with federal prisoners
and detainees of the immigra-
tion and customs enforcement
agency (ICE).
"When you go from 50 [fed-

in Baker] to 250, the caliber of

2 arrested for pot after


A Baker County sheriff's
deputy assisted the Florida
Highway Patrol in arresting two
men on charges of marijuana
possession June 8.
Deputy Benjamin Anderson
was driving east on I-10 when
he saw a FHP unit conducting
a traffic stop. Deputy Anderson
pulled over and helped the FHP
trooper with the stop. Accord-
ing to the officer, he asked the
driver of the pulled-over car,
Dwain Trivett, 29, of Springhill,
Fla. whether he could search
the car and Mr. Trivett said yes.
Deputy Anderson says he found
three marijuana cigarettes in a
cigarette pack. The passenger,
Bobby Courtney, 32, no address
listed, allegedly told the officers
where they had hidden more
marijuana.
In other reports, police ar-
rested Joseph McCann, 18, on
June 9 and charged him with
marijuana possession after they
say marijuana was found in his
clothes.
Deputy Jared Satterwhite
says he stopped Mr. McCann, a
Macclenny resident,, on US 90
and Arnold Rhoden Rd. due to
a malfunctioning tail light. The
officer says he smelled mari-
juana in the car and got consent
to search Mr. McCann. Deputy

Code boar


60 days to
BY ANDREW BARE
Press Staff
The Baker County Code En-
forcement Board gave a hard-
luck Macclenny woman 60 days
to clean up her property on US
90 east of Macclenny.
The board during its regular
meeting the evening of June 11
cited Gail Spivey as being in vio-
lation of the county's land devel-
opment regulations, saying that
the homesite was strewn with'
trash. Code Enforcement Officer
Phil Thomas stated initially that
Ms. Spivey had a trailer on the
property, but it was removed by
the time of Monday's meeting.
As an explanation for the
state of her property, Ms. Spiv-
ey offered a lengthy run-down
of several incidents which have
befallen her and her family. She
said she suffers from chronic
shoulder and hip ailments that
inhibit her ability to do manual
labor. According to Ms. Spivey,
she was forced to rescue her
daughter and grand-daughter
from drug addiction. She also
said that two of her adult chil-
dren had seriously injured them-
selves while working, and thus
she had little help in clearing the
land.
"I was already over-commit-
ted before I even got this cita-
tion," Ms. Spivey said. "I had
already entered Great Neighbor-
hoods' tutoring program every
Wednesday."
Ms. Spivey told the board
that most of the clutter was emp-
ty boxes. Those boxes, she said,
acted as camoflauge for several
air-conditioning units she was
storing at the property until she
could install the units. She said
she was trying to make a house
on the property livable.
While the board wished Ms.
Spivey better luck in the fu-
ture, and took into account her
claim she didn't have the health
to clean up the property herself
or the money to hire someone,
it set a 60 day time. frame for
clean-up.
In other business before the
board, the CEB gave Donald
Thompson of CW Webb Rd. 45
days to construct a fence around
the back of his property. The
fence would act to conceal sev-
eral cars which he, has kept on
the land to restore.
Mr. Thompson is licensed to
run an auto repair shop on his
property, but the board still cited
him as being in violation of lo-
cal land development regula-
tions. Mr. Thomas told the CEB
that Mr. Thompson had made
significant progress in cleaning
up what had been numerous cars
and trash.
According to county regula-
tions, Mr. Thompson can con-
tinue restoring the cars if he
erects a six-foot high privacy
fence around his backyard..
The board also told Shirley
Road resident Joseph Sondrini
to speak with the tri-county
New River Landfill near Rai-
ford about dumping a substan-
tial amount of debris currently
still on his property.
Mr. Sondrini demolished a
mobile home on his property
that violated county rules, but in
doing so created a large amount
of debris. According to Mr. Son-
drini, a local dump will only al-
low him to get rid of one cubic
yard of trash a week and an em-
ployee at New River told him
only Union County residents
could use the dump.
The board strenuously dis-
agreed and insisted to Mr. Son-
drini that the dump, which is
run by a district composed of
three area counties, was acces-
sible to Baker County residents.
The CEB gave Mr. Sondrini 45
days to dispose of the rest of his
debris before fines would start


kicking in.

property.
According to Mr. Thomas,


Mr. Sweat had cleaned up most
of the debris that had initiated
the complaint. He also moved a
business he was allegedly oper-
ating on his land to a commercial
plot elsewhere in the county.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday June 14, 2007 Page 7


Summer brings added risk ofpoisonings; nearly


half of them involve children ages six and under


(The / .-'..n ..' ,ewas submitted by the
Jacksonville office of the Florida Poi-
son Information Center)

School is out. Children and
families are on the move and
making plans for their favorite
time of the year summer! With
the traveling, hosting guests in
your home, or just outside en-
joying the weather, children are
at greater risk of poisoning dur-
ing the summer months.
During last year's summer
months, June August, there
were over 28,000 poisoning
emergency calls throughout the
state of Florida. Most of these
calls concerned sedative/hyp-
notics, acetaminophen contain-
ing products, cosmetics, and
insecticides. Of the total number
of poison emergency calls, al-
most 13,000 were for children
age six and under.
It is often difficult to main-
tain a poison-proof environment
during the summer season, but a
few simple tips can help reduce
the chance of poisoning emer-
gencies, especially in children.
The Florida Poison Information
Center Jacksonville (FPIC-
JAX) offers the following tips
to help keep you safe during the
summer. For poisoning emer-
gencies, call the FPICJAX at 1-
800-222-1222 day or night.
When using insect repellents,
make sure you read the direc-
tions first and carefully. Some
repellents are not meant to be ap-
plied to the skin, however, when
applying to skin, apply only to
exposed skin. When applying
to the face, spray on the hands
and rub onto face, being careful
to avoid the eyes and mouth; do
not spray on children's hands be-
cause.they tend to rub their eyes
or mouths. Wash all sprayed ar-
eas with soap and water when


indoors, where repellent is no
longer necessary. Repeated ap-
plications may be dangerous;
wash with soap and water be-
fore reapplying repellent.
Immediately call the Poison
Information Center if you be-
lieve you have been bitten or
stung by any of the following:
coral snake, cottonmouth (water
moccasin), rattlesnake, brown
recluse spider, black widow spi-
der, fire ants, jellyfish, or Portu-
guese man-o-war.
Many chemicals used to con-
trol insects, rodents and weeds
are as toxic to humans as they


are to their intended victims.
When ingested or inhaled in very
small amounts, most are capable
of producing illness. Avoid us-
ing products that require leaving
powder or pellets in areas where
children and pets may have ac-
cess to them.
The center is staffed with
skilled health care professionals
who give rapid life-saving infor-
mation, promote cost-effective
treatment and prevention, and
personal service, often going
the next step to ensure peace of
mind during a poisoning emer-


agency.
The Florida Poison Informa-
tion Center Jacksonville is a
cooperative effort among the
UF College of Medicine, Shands
Jacksonville, the University of
Florida Health Science Center
- Jacksonville, and the State of
Florida, Department of Health,
Children's Medical Service.
The Florida Poison Infor-
mation Center in Jacksonville
is designated as an accredited
regional poison control center
by the American Association of
Poison Control Centers.

Here's a rundown of common summer haz-
ards, courtesy cf the Florida Poison Information
Center Network:
/ Use care when using petroleum products
such as gasoline, kerosene, motor oils, paint
thinner, furniture polish or mineral spirits. If in-
gested, the chemical can get into the lungs caus-

damage. If ingested, call the Poison Information
Center immediately; Do not induce vomiting.
V Children are fascinated with mushrooms ...
a mushroom cannot be judged safe by whether
animals eat it or by seeing the area in which it

Two men with a history offighting


Police are filing charges
against two Macclenny men
who allegedly have a lengthy
history of confrontations with
each other.
Jonathan Collett, 21, told
Deputy Garrett Bennett on the
night of June 7 that he was at-
tacked while riding his bike
near W. Ohio Ave. The attacker,
who was later identified as J.C.
Folston, 28, grabbed Mr. Collett
by his neck and punched him in
the face several times. Accord-
ing to Mr. Collett, his assailant
then left in a green car.
When Deputy Bennett spoke
with Mr. Folston, the latter ac-
cused Mr. Collett of repeatedly
breaking into his Ivy St. home
and stalking his friend, Rebecca
Folston. When asked about that
night, Mr. Folston told police he
heard the woman scream and
saw Mr. Collett in his backyard.
Mr. Folston said he chased Mr.
Collett and admitted to punch-
ing him in the face.
Deputy Bennett says in his
report that charges will be filed
against Mr. Folston for battery
and against Mr. Collett for tres-
passing.
In other reports, police are
pursuing battery charges against
Macclenny resident Dustin Rho-
den, 20.
Dana Parenteau, 20, told
Deputy Gavin Sweat on June 7
that Mr. Rhoden had stolen some
money and a cellphone from one
of Mr. Parenteau's roommates.
According to Mr. Parenteau,
Mr. Rhoden pushed him to the
ground when he threatened to
call the police.
When Deputy Sweat talked
to Mr. Rhoden, the latter man
allegedly confirmed Mr. Paren-
teau's account. Mr. Rhoden said
the roommate had taken some
items from a friend's store. The
deputy says in his report that
charges are being filed against
Mr. Rhoden.
The state attorney's office will
decide whether to file charges
against Macclenny resident El-
vira Ali, 60, stemming from an
incident in which she allegedly
struck a mentally handicapped
woman she was looking after.
Bridget Stewart, 25, told po-
lice on June 3 that Ms. Ali had
repeatedly hit her on the leg with
a broom handle. Deputy Greg
Burnsed said the complainant
had a large bruise on her thigh


and right hand.
Ms. Ali told the officer that
Ms. Stewart had been out of
control and using racial slurs.
She said she hit Ms. Stewart to
calm her down.
Ms. Stewart's primary guard-
ian, Rebecca Hoke, said Ms.
Stewart had made an injury
worse in the past in an effort to
get attention.
Morgan Vines, 24, of Sander-
son was jailed the afternoon of
June 6 after he allegedly threat-
ened girlfriend Ashley Crews,
21, at an Ivy St. residence in
Macclenny. Deputy Erik De-
loach said he was flagged down
by Ms. Crews near Lowder and
US. 90 about 4:00 pm after she
left the residence with her moth-
er.
The officer then interviewed
Mr. Vines back at the residence
and seized his 9 mm pistol before
charging him with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon.
The accused admitted to argu-
ing with Ms. Crews, but denied
a firearm was involved. The
girlfriend's 1-year-old daughter
witnessed the incident.
A Glen St. Mary woman filed
a criminal complaint the evening
of June 4, accusing her husband
of closing a power window on
her fingers, then attempting to
burn them with a cigarette light-
er.
Tonya Smith, 46, said the
incident occurred after an argu-
ment at her residence off Nelson


to content or quantity.
V For visitors who are not used to the activ-
ity of children, remind them to properly store
all personal belongings, especially prescription
items, locked away out of the reach of children.
V For pool safety, read and follow the labels
and directions carefully before you open or use
the product; step out of the pool house before
opening containers. Do not store pool chemi-
cals where other flammable items may mix with
them; i.e., a mixture of pool chemicals and fertil-
izer can cause a fire or explosion.
V Never use metallic utensils to dispense pool
chemicals; instead use clean and dry plastic,
glass, china or enamelware utensils and.buck-
ets.
S If camping, be careful of the underbrush; it
could contain poison ivy. Remember, "Leaves of
three, let it be." If someone touches poison ivy,
immediately rinse with plenty of running water
for at least five minutes. If they experience dif-
ficulty breathing, call 911 or the poison emer-
gency hotline at 1-800-222-1222.

Ms. Smith also told Deputy Bill
Starling her husband has ac-
costed her several times in past
year, and she did not report the
.incidents because she feared he
would kill her.

City gro


lans


must include schools


BY ANDREW BARE
Press Staff
The Macclenny City Com-
mission is going to have a little
more homework when it comes
to integrating the school system
into local development plans.
Janis Fleet, who is working
for the Baker County School
Board, outlined to the com-
mission at the regular monthly
meeting Tuesday night its re-
Ssponsibilities in working with
local schools under a 2005 state
law. In essence, that law tells
local government entities that
they must include public school
availability in their development
master plans.
Developers interested in Bak-
er County would have to show
that their proposals would not
result in an influx of students that
would overwhelm school capac-
ity. According to Ms. Fleet, if
the proposed developments are
shown to exceed existing capac-
ity, developers would be forced
to help the Baker County school
district-expand that capacity, ei-
ther by helping with new school
construction, current school im-
provements or simply by donat-
ing land to the schools.
According to Ms. Fleet, a
working group comprised of
representatives from the city,
county and school board tenta-
tively proposed a school system
in Baker County where the ca-
pacity was 800 students for the
elementary schools, 1200 in the
middle school and 1500 in the
high school.
Mayor Gary Dopson was
unenthusiastic about the new
requirements, which say cities,
counties and school boards must
cooperate in crafting educational
goals. According to Mayor Dop-
son, the new law is unclear as to
what recourse localities have if
they disagree on issues.
"I know we're supposed to
decide together, but what if we
disagree," he said. "Who will be
the final authority in a dispute?"
Mayor Dopson expressed
concern that the ultimate arbi-


trators for the disputes would ei-
ther be the state government or
the courts. The city must have
its new school addition to the
master plan in place by June,
2008.
In other business before the
board, commissioners agreed to
give McDonald's on SR 121 15
days to improve the traffic con-
ditions at its Barber Rd. drive-
thru entrance, but Commission-
er Phillip Rhoden did so with a
healthy dose of skepticism.
McDonald's officials met
with city manager Gerald Dop-
son before Tuesday's meet-
ing and assured him they were
working to relieve traffic at the
drive-thru entrance, primarily
by improving efficiency and en-
suring adequate staffing.
But Commissioner Rhoden,
who has been pursuing the issue
since March, said the company's
suggestions were inadequate to
solve the problem.
"I don't think it's going to fix
matters," he said. "I don't think
they've done anything here but
throw a little sawdust on it."
The Barber Rd. entrance be-
comes notoriously crowded dur-
ing lunch hours and traffic often
spills out into the road, which
intersects with the busy SR 121.
Commissioner Rhoden indi-
cated that if the situation isn't
improved in 15 days, he will ask
the city to shut down the Barber
Rd. entrance.
And the commission adopted
on first reading a proposal-by
James Yarborough that would
allow him to build 41 townhous-
es on 6.89 acres of land between
5th St. and American Way. Mr.
Yarborough said the develop-
ment, Creekside Town Homes,
would be aimed at older cou-
ples. The location is between the
temporary American Enterprise
Bank location and Jonathan St.
near the middle school.
The homes in Creekside
will have a front setback along
American Way of 20 feet, which
is five feet shorter than standard
multi-family housing.

'Calming bears' donated


to SO by Girl Scouts


Local Girl Scout Troop 235
recently donated nearly 60 bears
and other stuffed animals col-
lected through their Bear 'N
Blanket com-
munity service
project to the By
Baker County Kelley
Sheriff's Of-
fice. The proj- Lannigan
ect was an
outgrowth of Press Staff
the national
Girl Scout "Make A Difference
Week" observed March l1th
- 17th. The troop presented the
stuffed animals to Chief Gerald
Gonzales on June 7.
Teresa Stoutenborough, who
became one of the troop's lead-
ers six months ago, was aware
of such projects in other coun-
ties. After some discussion, the
troop, which includes Daisy,
Brownie and Junior level scouts,
decided to develop a similar
project which they called Bear
N' Blanket and to partner with
the sheriff's department.
Bear 'N Blanket helped sat-
isfy requirements the troop
needed to receive the "My Com-
munity" scout badge. Honorary


My Community badges were
also presented to Sheriff Joey
Dobson and Chief Gonzales.
Law enforcement officers
carry the stuffed animals in their
patrol cars when they respond to
accident, domestic violence and
other crime scenes that may in-
volve children.
"When a child is involved in
a crisis situation such as an acci-
dent or a foster care emergency,
the first thing they want to do
is hug mommy. When mommy
isn't available or a parent is the
one involved in an accident, hug-
ging a stuffed animal provides
much needed comfort," accord-
ing to Ms. Stoutenborough.
The scouts also relied on do-
nations from Macclenny CVS
Pharmacy, Westside Elementary
School, the Moose Lodge, Du-
val Honda, Wal-Mart and Sam's
Clubs.
"So much of what children
see today is glamourized on
television and that's not real-
ity'" stated Ms. Stoutenborough.
"This experience helped educate
our girl scouts about sad situa-
tions that sometimes happen to


Sanderson resident Heather
Kelley told police on June 6 that
an unidentified man had stolen
her 2002 GMC Envoy on N. 5th
St in Macclenny.
Ms. Kelley told police the
man had driven her car south on
CR 228. Police were able to find
the car on Interstate 10 and pull it
over, but they say the man in the
car drove off onto Chaffee Rd.
While they lost sight of the car
and the driver, they later found
the Envoy at Peabody Court in
Duval County.
A Macclenny resident report-
ed more than $5000 worth of
property stolen from his Rain-
tree Dr. home.
Thomas Medlock told po-
lice June 4 that someone had
broken into his house and took
the prescription drugs Hydro-
codone and Adderal, as well as
a $5075 Rolex wristwatch. Mr.
Medlock's wife .Georgina, told
police that his daughter told her
Jason Byrd, 28, of Baldwin and
Jeffrey Sinclair, 32, of Orange
Park were in the house at the
time of the theft.
Police were unable to reach
the men by phone.

other children."
Troop 235 girls prepared
teddy bear posters to promote
their project and used one dur-
ing their presentation at the
sheriff's department. It featured
a large brown bear with pink


ears and paws and a slogan that
read: "Baker County, where girl
scouts and the Baker County
sheriff's department work to-
gether for our community."

tiedto theft

of six checks
The sheriff's department ar-
rested a 17-year-old Sanderson
man and charged him with steal-
ing several checks belonging to
his grandmother.
Dorothy Dunn told police
June 4 that her statement from
Country Federal Credit Union
included a check for $20 that
she didn't write. When she went
through her checkbook, she no-
ticed an additional five checks
were missing.
When her grandson signed his
name in an effort to show how it
differed from the signature on
the check, Deputy Curtis Ruise
said the two signatures looked
identical. According to Deputy
Ruise, the 17-year-old admitted
to writing the $20 check and giv-
ing it to a friend, Hollie Lawson,
34, so she could buy cocaine.
Ms. Lawson allegedly told
Deputy Ruise that the check

him to trade a 12-pack of beer
for drugs.

pany told her that someone had
used her Social Security number
to secure the loan.
Ms. Mitchell told police that
when she confronted her son
Travis Smith, 27, with the pos-
sibility that he was the one who
took out the loan, he was short
with her. She told police her son
had a drug problem.

Air conditi

From Florida Power and Light


With summertime around the
comer, your air conditioning
system will likely need to work
overtime to cool your home. And
because the energy to run your
A/C accounts for more than 50%
of an electric bill the hot summer
months, it's important to make
sure your system is running as
efficiently as possible-before
the season hits.
According to FPL, the most
basic and necessary step for any
homeowner is to clean or replace
the air conditioner's filter ev-
ery month, which will increase
the system's efficiency and trim
cooling costs.
If your air conditioning sys-
tem is 10 years or older, how-
ever, chances are it is inefficient
and nearing the end of its useful
life.
FPL recommends, using the
following checklist to assess the
condition of your existing sys-
tem and decide whether it is time
to repair or replace your unit:
Does your system undergo
frequent repairs?
Has your system experienced
a major component failure?
Are you continually receiv-
ing higher than anticipated elec-
tric bills?
Is your air conditioning unit
not cooling like it used to?
If you answered yes to any of
these questions and your system
is 10 years old or older, it might
be time for replacement. In fact,
in most cases, it is more cost-ef-
fective in the long run to replace
the entire system than just one
part. Additional benefits of re-
placement include increased ef-
ficiency and improved indoor air
quality.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday June 14, 2007 Page 14


Father's Day gift


you give your kids


A lot has changed through
the years about the father-child
relationship. Remember those
old TV shows where Dad would
call Junior into the study for a
man-to-man-talk?
"It was usually because the
kid was in trouble," laughs
Russ Chandler of Portsmouth,
Virginia. "Back when I was a
kid that's the way it was," he
says. "My father and I had what
I'd call a good relationship but
we never really talked about
anything of major significance,
not really."
Things have changed for
this generation of dads, says
Chandler who now has three
teenage sons of his own. "I know
my boys pretty well. I definitely
know them better than I was
known as a boy."
Do you wish you knew your
son or daughter better? You're
going to have to listen, says
Dr. Jim Longhurst, a psycholo-
gist with national children and
family services charity Starr
Commonwealth. And it starts
with listening to yourself.
"Many times, we as parents
rely so much on lecturing and
telling our children what they
should do," Longhurst says.
"We assume we know what
motivated them to do something
and jump right into the mode of
correcting them and demanding
change."
Longhurst, who works with
troubled teenagers at Starr's
residential treatment facilities in
Michigan and Ohio, believes it's
a habit we as adults must learn to
break. "Many of us had parents
who only talked to 'us as chil-
dren in this manner. They gave
us orders and criticized us, so as
we become adults, we naturally
assume this way of interacting
with our children especially


when we think they're doing
something wrong."
' A better direction, says
Longhurst, and one he's seen
work again and again in the
lives of disenfranchised teens,
is to engage your child in true
dialogue. It's not as easy as it
sounds, especially for dads who
feel a need to be "the authority"
in the conversation.
"We must work hard at resist-
ing the urge to come up with
a specific solution or result,
and instead direct our focus on
understanding 'how our kids
think, and more importantly,
feel about something," he says.
Need some pointers? Longhurst
offers these:
Resist the urge to change
your child. By listening with the
sole purpose of understanding,
your child will more likely make
changes on her own. Children
don't resist change; they resist
being changed.
Expand your capacity to
experience the reality of your
child. Do this by increasing your
"pause response" and refraining
from interrupting or formulat-
ing a response before your child


has completed expressing their
thoughts and feelings.
Ask more questions for
clarification and offer reflec-
tive statements. These promote

your child's self exploration and
coming up with their own ideas
about solutions to problems.
Your child's feelings are
always valid. There are no right
or wrong feelings.
Slow down your experi-
ence of time. Relax. Enjoy the
opportunity to sit back and learn
from your child. Don't be in any
hurry.
Remember that a shared
understanding between you and
your child can be very powerful.
When you have made it possible
to listen and learn together with
your child, you have given your
child a most valuable gift.

Yard ofMonth has something always abloom...
Barbara and Bill Lisenby of Copper Creek Drive have succeeded in keeping some-
thing in bloom all year long, and for that accomplishment alone their property has
been chosen the Yard of the Month by the Garden Club of Baker County. Right now,
Barbara's prizes are the many hydrangeas tucked away in a corner amidst diminu-
tive statues and colorfully painted mushrooms her "fairy garden" overlooking a
large pond in back. But the color doesn't stop there. Sprinkled throughout the shady
areas are hostas and shade annuals, with daylilies, hibiscus and asters, just to name
a few, on the fringes enjoying sunlight. The front yard is graced with splendid white
crepe myrtles and several varieties of well-pruned shrubs. The Lisenbys rely on or-
ganic gardening to achieve all this splendor without harming our environment. To
learn more about the yard of the month or the Garden Club of Baker County, contact

FAT LADY

ROBERT GERARD

There isn't a lot of sports news
for Americans over in Italy. We'll
get the occasional ice hockey
score the Anaheim Ducks won
the Stanley Cup! When I left, the
Ducks were scraping along in a
semi-final with the Detroit Red
Wings and the Wings were tout-
ed to cream them. What do the
pundits know.
The other American news was
the rise of LeBron James and the
Cavaliers. The British Sky sports
station we picked up in our hotel
was wondering if he were a flash
in the pan or the real meal deal.
I certainly don't think he's
any flash in the pan, but from the
scores of the NBA Finals, it's the
Spurs that are the real meal deal.
No, over in Italy you have cal-
cio and everything else. Calcio
is football and football is soccer.
There are entire stations dedicat-
ed to calcio much like ESPN,
but with a focus on soccer. Ev-
ery hangnail or stomach ache the
major stars have becomes news.
I couldn't understand much of
it, but I did figure out one story
with American implications. The
Italians are loving the fact that
their rivals over in Spain are hav-
ing David Beckham troubles.
Six months ago, David Beck-
ham was the forgotten man at
Real Madrid, the world's biggest
and most expensive soccer team.
The media mega-star was sit-


ting on the bench, and his coach
told the media that was where he
would stay.
So Beckham took his star
power to the LA Galaxy of Ma-
jor League Soccer (read minor
league soccer anywhere else in
the world).
Along the way, the starter for
Real got hurt and in came Beck-
ham off the bench. He led Real
to the top of the Spanish league
and had a hand in three of the last
four goals scored by the English
national team. Becks is back and
the owner and coach of Madrid
are begging him to stay.
He is politely saying bye bye
to Madrid and hello USA.
The Italians love the trouble
he's giving the Spanish, but
hate the fact that he is taking his
tremendous talent to the USA.
They feel it will be wasted over
here and that the only reason he's
coming is so that his wife, Vic-
toria (Posh Spice of Spice Girls
fame) can be closer to Beverly
Hills. They are probably right.
Beckham will, by stepping on
the field, be the best player in the
MLS by a long shot which, by
the way, he's capable of scoring
with. But his talents might be di-
minished by not playing against
top opposition.
I can't say I'll miss Italian
televised sports. Though I love
soccer, I could care less about
motorcycle racing, the America's
Cup, trials and Formula I auto
racing. Oh and the WWF. Ital-
ians love some WWF wrestling.
Go figure. Maybe the guys
look like gladiators to them.
