Arsenic in

water near

Pineview

under normn
The Baker County Health
Department said on July 3 that
recent testing of ten private
wells in the vicinity of the for-
mer Pineview golf course in
northwest Macclenny turned
up arsenic content far below
the federal maximum contami-
nant levels, and in at least one
sample arsenic was not detect-
ed at all.
The results released this
week mirror those of tests on
14 water sources, both public
and private, that were com-
pleted in January of this year.
The Baker County Health De-
partment conducted the earlier
tests after a newly-hired physi-
cian at Fraser Hospital raised
the possibility that arsenic con-
tamination may be responsible
for chronic illnesses she was
seeing in her internal medicine
practice.
The physician, Dr. Alison
Lex, was fired in March in
large part because she per-
sisted in the belief that arsenic,
was playing a role in the high
incidence of cancer and other
ills in Baker County.
"This is preliminary raw
data only, but the health depart-
ment at this time has no plans
for further testing," said Terry
Graham,. an environmental
specialist. "Private citizens can
request water sampling and
there is a nominal fee for it."
The testing has significance
because the former golf course
off Lowder St. would be the
most likely place for harmful
contaminants to seep though
into a water supply. The cur-
rent owners of the 137-acre
property plan eventually to
construct 400 homes or sell
it to another developer and
have had to scrape off hundreds
of tons of topsoil because its
arsenic content was above the
maximum allowed for residen-
tial tracts.
Much of the contaminated
soil is piled into a large mound
and will be sold off for accept-,
able uses like parking lot and
building foundation fill.
The latest tests in the vicin-
ity of Pineview ranged from
a high of .000253 milligrams
per liter (mpg/L) to levels so
low as to be non-detectable.
The maximum concentration
allowed by the federal EPA is
.01 mpg/L.
"We will continue to moni-
tor the situation but for now
we're satisfied that adequate
testing is complete and it
shows the local water supplies
far below what is acceptable as
to arsenic content," added Mr.
Graham.
The testing was requested
by EPA, and state health and
environmental agencies and
the estimated $1000 cost fund-

Pre-K programs praise testing methods used by state


BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
Several Baker County pre-kindergar-
ten centers offered praise and support
for Florida's Voluntary Pre-Kindergar-
ten Program, saying it adequately mea-
sured their levels of achievement.
On June 20, the Florida Department
of Education released the results of test-
ing from the 2005-2006 school year that


purported to show the extent to which
pre-k centers were preparing children
for kindergarten. The testing took place
within the context of the Voluntary Pre-
Kindergarten program, to which six
Baker County centers are a part. As re-
ported in last week's Press, the highest
score belonged to the Special Blessings
School Readiness center, which scored
265 out of a possible 300.
But right behind with a 264 score was


the Baker County Pre-Kindergarten pro-
gram, the school district's pre-k center
for Baker County. Sherrie Raulerson,
principal of Baker County Pre-K, was
understandably excited about her pro-
gram's score.
"We are very pleased with our scores
we got with our full-year pre-k," Ms.
Raulerson said. "But we're still looking
[to improve.]"
But what, exactly, does the state's

Ms. Raulerson provided a sample test
form of the various criteria. Included
were vocabulary, geometry and read-
ing comprehension, as well as other
concrete, measurable factors. The tests
are given by kindergarten teachers dur-
ing a child's first month in school; Ms.
Raulerson believes that time range gives
teachers a large enough sample size to

BCMS scores A


high school drops


,one level to a
BY JIM MCGAULEY AND ANDREW BARE
Press staff
The Florida Department of Education last week issued a glowing
thumbs-up to Baker County Middle School.
It was not so kind to the county's lone high school.
When the state released its individual school grades for the 2006-
2007 school year, BCMS received an "A" rating, the highest pos-
sible and the first time a Baker County school attained the highest
grade. This makes the middle school eligible for a grant from the
state in the form of an extra $100 per student.
Baker County High School, meanwhile, was given a "D" grade,
the second-lowest. It was a fall from the school's 05-06 "C" ranking.
At the moment,
the high school
is in no danger of
state sanctions or g w.er
penalties. But if
staff there can't ac-sA ,i a ei
improve the s ".e
school's perfor-
mance, by this
time next year
BCHS could
be dealing with
state recommen-
dations.
The grades were
based on the results
of the FCAT test,
which measures
students' abilities in
math, writing, sci-
ence and reading.
The inclusion of
science testing was
new in 2006-2007. 7
Keller Intermedi-
ate School was able
to raise its grade
from a "D" in 05-
06 to a "C" for the
most recent school
year.
BCMS principal
David Davis was
effusive in praising
his school's staff,
especially vice-
principal Gail Griffis, who he said was responsible for implement-
ing an FCAT-centered curriculum. Mr. Davis called teachers on Fri-
day after the grades were released and followed up the phone calls
with congratulatory letters.
"Each year our scoring has been growing upward," he said. "I
firmly believe that a school has to balance academics and the disci-
pline factors to score well on the state guidelines."
The principal said repeatedly that the improvement in test scores
was related to an improvement in school discipline, which has been
an emphasis at the middle school.
SBCHS staffers were, understandably, less thrilled with last week's
news. Principal David Crawford was away from his desk on Monday
and Tuesday and couldn't,be reached for comment. Vice-Principal
Johnnie Jacobs insisted that, while he was "disappointed" with his
school's grade, Baker County High School was still doing a good job
teaching its students.
"If you don't just look at the A-B-C-D score, if you look at the
individual categories, and if you look at where we've been to where
we are now, there has been steady, consistent improvement," Mr.
Jacobs said. "There's more to a school than the FCAT. You look at
the programs you've got going at a high school, from a vocational
standpoint, I don't know of any high school that offers as much as
we do."
Both Mr. Jacobs and Baker County Superintendent Paula Barton
said that the state had changed certain aspects of its FCAT testing
for the 06-07 school year. The change that killed BCHS' chance at
maintaining its "C" rating was the decision to penalize a school if
its lowest quartile of students failed to improve from the 05-06 year.
Mr. Jacobs said the Baker High had enough points to qualify as a
"C" school, but the failure of its worst students to improve knocked
BCHS down to a "D."
"We're going to have to work
things so that those students, that (See page 2)

"This is so much better than

Connie Craig, a teacher at ABC

"You have to get [children]

That shift in thinking has forced
pre-k centers to assume the bur-

"I taught kindergarten for

Raulerson admitted was "time-
consuming," both Baker Pre-K
and ABC said they supported
the VPK program. As reported
in The Press, ABC was the only
pre-K center in Baker County

the state; it fell one
'. point short of the
state's standard.

permissible in the past have
since been banned as environ-

Fears raised by Dr. Lex also
prompted US Senator Bill Nel-
son to request a closer look by
federal agencies like EPA and
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention in Atlanta.
Preliminary analysis by CDC
confirmed that of the local health
department that blood and urine
samples taken from Dr. Lex's
patients did not point to harmful
contaminants, but the agencies
indicated further study will be
made before a final determina-

group of students, are with the
personnel that could do the best
job with that group of students,"
Mr. Jacobs said. "And we have
to look at things like what pro-
grams, what reading programs
we've had students working on,
to see which has been the most
effective with students in that
group."
Mr. Jacobs, pointed out that
schools around Florida had seen
their grades drop as a result of
the state's changes. He defended
BCHS as a good school that was
constantly improving.
"I've been here 12 years,
working," he said. "I grew up
here. I went to school here. And
this is the strongest I've ever
seen the faculty at this school. I


feel real good about going into
this year. We've got the person-
nel, the programs. We feel very'
good about the core programs
that we have. We're at the point
where we just have to match the
two up properly. We have to get
the right personnel with the right
program with the right kids."
Ms. Barton said she wasn't
planning on making any person-
nel changes at the high school
and expressed confidence in the
school's overall educational mis-
sion.
"Baker County High School
has made improvements in
FCAT scores, but the students
in the lower 25 quartile are not
making progress," she said. "I
can tell you the kids are learning
over at the high school."


Crews is certified commissioner

First-term Baker County commissioner Gordon Crews last month
joined the ranks of more than 200 counterparts across Florida certified
by the Florida Association of Counties.
Commissioner Crews was given the designation along with five
others during an awards ceremony at the FAC annual conference in
Orlando.
Board members voluntarily enroll in the certification program and
must complete a series of courses totaling 42 hours. They cover areas
like government operations, structure, financial management, ethics
and the Sunshine Law, effective communication and others.
Others recently certified included commissioners from Bradford,
Gadsden, Marion, St. Johns and Citrus counties.

don't want that.

administration.
My guess is that Mr. Craw-
ford has at most another year to
get that "D" erased, particularly
if Superintendent Paula Barton
plans on seeking another term
next year. By then, the high
school will become an even big-
ger "elephant."
And what's important for ev-
eryone to remember is we don't
want a "D" performing school
at any level, but especially high
school. It says things about Bak-
er County that aren't necessarily
true, but can't be ignored or ex-
plained away.
It is what it is.
We shouldn't like the way it
makes us feel about ourselves,
we shouldn't like the negativity
it signifies to the outside world,
and above all we shouldn't tol-
erate what it probably indicates
about many of the young men
and women graduating from
Baker County High School. They
likely, indeed, know little.
Baker High does not want to
be known as a high school with

ple in the stands and on the field

tences all the time. Most chief
executives have commuted over
a dozen by the time they leave
office. But most of those come
in cases where it's very question-
able whether the offender was
guilty in the first place.
A lot of people in the know
thought that Libby took the fall
for the Vice President and was
acting under orders. That will


provide a little campaign fodder
for the Democrats this next elec-
tion.
V Speaking of Democrat can-
didates, John Edwards just saw
his stock go up a little this week
thanks to conservative colum-
nist Ann Coulter. The darling of
the far right said in an interview
that she wished that the terror-
ists would kill the former senator
from North Carolina. It would be
good for the country.
I'm not making that up.
This woman is a talking toad-
stool spouting poison. Rerpem-
ber what happened to Don Imus?
He got dropped so fast his cow-
boy hat was spinning. No one
has dropped Coulter from their
stations or their newspapers. I
guess saying out loud that you
wished terrorists killed a politi-
cal candidate somehow doesn't
rank up there with questionable
racial slurs in the pantheon of po-
litical correctness.
V Finally, I am tired of crude.
I'm tired of bad language, I'm
tired of total lack of politeness.
No matter where you go, peo-
ple are rude and crude.
You can be in a restaurant, in
the mall, in a noisy movie, any-
where. It's ridiculous. I was in
St. Paul's Cathedral in Rome and
an American college student be-
hind me was cursing up a storm.
It was amazing.

ality show.

on-the driver's part to apologize
for nearly killing us.
Earlier that week, I had de-
cided to sit outside at a cafe table
for lunch, again at Calendars.
I was contentedly reading my
book and relaxing when a group
of young teenagers, idle now
that school is out, came skulk-
ing around the corner.
A woman hurried after them
demanding to know who had
just shattered the glass bottles in
the middle of the street. Finally,
she got an admission from one
and pressured him into cleaning
up his mess, but not without con-
siderable griping.
With the entire sidewalk at
their disposal, this unsavory
group then decided to congre-
gate within two and a half feet
of my table, seemingly oblivious
to my presence. Although I en-
counter it frequently these days,


Disappointed

in fireworks
Dear Editor:
The fireworks display at .the
Independence Day Celebration
last Thursday was a disappoint-
ment.
I contacted the vendor the
next morning. He, too, was dis-
appointed, and said he had some
unusual malfunctions which
could not be explained to the
crowd. He was apologetic and
offered us a greater, show next
year at a significant discount in
price.
The show scheduled for next
year is a larger one than last year.
It should be worth it.
I appreciate his willingness to
make it right. Thanks to all those
who supported our fireworks and
Independence Day celebration
this year.
Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital has a great supporting cast
that makes this celebration pos-
sible. They deserve the best.

Pre-Kscoring

reflects students

from 05-06 term
Dear Editor:
After -reading the article (in
last week's Press) about the Pre-
K scores, I would like to clear
something up.
I am sure most of your read-
ers already figured this out, but
in case they did not I want to ex-
plain it to them. The Pre-k scores
that were recently released are
based on the 2005-2006 VPK
(Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) year.
These scores come from the stu-
dents who attended the program
from August 2005 through May
2006. The students are actually
assessed once they get to kinder-
garten.
While I am very proud of Spe-
cial Blessings for achieving the
top score for the county, I think it
is important to give credit where
credit is due. During the school
year of 2005-2006 when the as-
sessed students were enrolled
at Special Blessings (and the
16 years before that), Mrs. Rae
Wolfe (the writer's mother) was
the director. The teachers at the
time were myself and five other
ladies, of which only one remains
at the center. Interesting isn't it!
As far as the situation with
ABC Learning Center, I agree
with them they were not given a
fair shot, and unfortunately they
are not alone in this type of situ-
ation. As a former Pre-k teacher,
current elementary school teach-
er and a former member of the
School Readiness Coalition, I
think it is important for parents
to remember that these are just
numbers. There are a lot of fac-
tors that go into what makes up a
quality early education program.
While it is important that chil-
dren be prepared academically,
it is also important that they be
loved, safe and happy.

more. It's auto-

Ms. Carr has been crocheting
the warm, handmade coverings as
part of her activities in the home
service group of the GFWC Mac-
clenny Woman's Club, of which
she has been a member for over
two decades.
"When I was first invited to
the Woman's Club, it was mostly
a social organization and met in the late
afternoon," said Ms. Carr. "When it began
meeting in the morning and emphasizing
community service projects, that's when I
decided to get involved because that's what
I'm all about serving the community."
At one point, Ms. Carr came up with the
idea of making Christmas stockings for resi-
dents of Wells Nursing Home. The next year,
she decided to make blankets.
Since so many of the residents were in
wheelchairs, she began experimenting with
the size of the blankets. It was trial and error
at first, but finally Ms. Carr got the dimen-
sions correct. The blankets, known as "lap
robes," are sized to cover someone sitting in
a wheelchair and eliminate the risk of get-
ting' caught in the wheels. Eventually, the
club project expanded to include Macclenny
Nursing and Rehab.
It takes Ms. Carr about 24 hours to com-
plete a lap robe. She buys the yarn and do-
nates the cost and her time to the project.
The blankets are crafted in sections which
she calls "strips." Sirips are mass produced
and when 'she"has; a large collection she co-
ordinates them into patterns. The matched
strips are then crocheted together to make a
blanket, and a border is added to the outer
edge. As the lap robes grow in quantity, Ms.
Carr begins stacking them in piles according
to their destinations.
"I stockpile throughout the year. The nurs-
ing facilities let me know how many they are
going to need each holiday."
Ms. Carr also makes and sends lap robes
to Operation Smile, an international organi-
zation of volunteer medical personnel who
repair facial deformities in children.
She uses a different type of yarn for blan-
kets for children and babies, one that is much

Tries to throw table


A Sanderson patron of Mac's
Liquors in downtown Macclenny
apparently injured a hand while
taking on a task a bit beyond his
capabilities.
Michael Davis, 33, was drunk
and staggering when confronted
by Deputy Patrick McGauley
following a disturbance call
about 10:30 the evening of June
30. Mr. Davis' response was un-
intelligible when quizzed by the
officer about a small laceration
on his hand.
Fellow bar patron Kimberly
Barton stepped up and said Mr.
Davis was "trying to lift the pool
table to throw it." He then alleg-
edly tossed a cup at an employee
behind the bar, then tried to fight
several other patrons.
Deputy McGauley noted that
Mr. Davis did manage to say,
"Don't [mess] with me. I know
people," before he was taken to
jail and charged with disorderly
intoxication.
In another arrest, Tiara Rob-
inson, 18, of Macclenny was


charged with resisting Deputy
Curtis Ruise and disorderly con-
duct for allegedly interfering
in his questioning of Chazatee
Moore, also 18 and from Mad-
clenny, about a criminal mischief
incident the evening of June 27..
When the officer arrived 'al
the scene off Grissholm St.,'it
was the third time police hhd
been called to investigate distir-
bances involving Ms. Robinson
and Ms. Moore. The latter sus-
pect allegedly damaged a vehicle
belonging to Ashley Amerson by
tossing a brick at it. Both women
fled on foot when Deputy Ruise
arrived about 9:00.
He saw Ms. Moore run into
her residence on South 9th St.
and while questioning her abdut
the disturbance, the other suspect
arrived and began yelling at the
officer. She refused to calm her-
self and was handcuffed before
she was taken to county jail.
A criminal complaint will
be filed against Ms. Moore for
throwing the brick.

Ms. Carr began to crochet when she was
very young. Her mother tried to teach her the
technique when she was eight years old, but
she wasn't interested. By the time she was
12, however, she greatly desired to have a
crocheted doily set for her bedroom. She ap-
proached her mother to teach her, but was
refused.
"Mom, was like that. If she made a ges-
ture and you didn't respond, then you were
on your own and she wouldn't be moved,"
said Ms. Carr.
Undaunted, the stubborn 12-year-old saved
her money and bought yarn, a needle and an
instruction' booklet from the dime store.
"You could buy a crochet pattern book for
ten cents back then," says Ms. Carr. "That
same book would cost you four or five dol-
lars today."
Over and over, she struggled to make the
chain circle that begins the pattern. After
considerable effort, she produced the entire
doily set and proudly placed it before her
mother.
"She examined' it with all its beginner's.
flaws and said, "Well, Olga, not bad for a be-
ginner, but I think you can do much better
work than this," remembers Ms. Carr. "That
was her way of challenging me. I kept at it
and finally mastered the technique."
Seven decades later, she is still at it. Al-
though her mother never used a pattern book
and crocheted by instinct, Ms. Carr became
adept at interpreting the special shorthand in
which crochet pat-
tern instructions
are written.

Frequently suspended driver

stopped for blaring his music
The driver of a car stopped the afternoon of June 30 on Woodlawn
Rd. was at the wheel despite the fact that his license has been sus-
pended 16 times.
Deputy Garrett Bennett said he followed the Pontiac sedan driven
by Dale Lee, 35, of Macclenny because loud music was emitting from
it near South 6th and George Hodges Rd. A computer check revealed
Mr. Lee's license was suspended for failure to appear in court, failure
to pay past fines and failure to pay child support..
In similar cases, Axavier Johnson, 28, of Brooksville, Ga. was taken
to county jail the next morning after the 2002 Ford SUV he was driv-
ing westbound on Interstate 10 was stopped for traveling 87 mph in
the 70 zone.
Deputy Randy Davis learned Mr. Johnson's license was under sus-
pension and the SUV displayed an incorrect tag, which the suspect
said he removed from his father's vehicle.
Deputy James Marker said he was acting on a tip when he spotted
Leslie Starling, 36, of Glen St. Mary driving a 1995 Honda near the
intersection of Mud Lake Rd. (CR 130) and CR 125 south of Glen
St. Mary the morning of June 27. Authorities were already aware her
license had been suspended five times for DUI and failure to pay child
support.
William Homitz, 39, of Sanderson was arrested just after midnight
on June 28 on a Clay County warrant charging him with failure to ap-
pear in court and driving on a suspended license. Deputy John Harden
served the warrant at a residence on South 9th St. in Macclenny.

to do it," says Ms. Carr. "I never could do
that. I need the books."
During her long career as an airline ticket
reservationist, Ms. Carr spent considerable
time traveling to other countries and espe-
cially loved China. Her home is decorated in
an Oriental motif in the characteristic colors
of black and red. On the black lacquer dining
room table is a long, white crocheted table
cloth in a pattern called Queen Ann's Lace,
which resembles the blossom of the flower of
the same name.
"I knew the dimensions of my furniture
which I had special-ordered from the Ori-
ent," said Ms. Carr. "I made the table cloth
and runners for the side furniture while I
waited for it to arrive."
Ms. Carr describes herself as a no-non-
sense person who has always spoken the
truth as she sees it, even at the risk of offend-
ing others.
"I'm sure I've aggravated a lot of folks
over the years, and many wouldn't think so,
but I do have a big heart, especially for ani-
mals, little children and old folks." Her lap
. robes are a way. of giving something back to
the community for all her own blessings.
"Nobody gets by in this world without a
little help from other people," she says. "Af-
ter all, what do we really, truly have, but each
other?"

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through
the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stornrwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from
gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate
that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemo-
therapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These
people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other
microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at Macclenny II Water Treatment Facility would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are
committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

Catering company granted

to set up shop in Thompsc


The old Thompson house on
Florida Ave. in Macclenny will
likely become the home of a
new catering business.
The Zoning Adjustment
Board, which met Monday,
unanimously decided to allow
Kitty Boswell-Herda, the owner
of Catering To You, a personal
chef service, to locate her busi-
ness in the house at 132 Florida
Ave. Ms. Boswell-Herda re-
ceived a variance on zoning,
from residential to commercial.
No one spoke in opposition
to the business, and Ms. Bo-
swell-Herda said there would
be little foot traffic in and out of
the home. Her catering business
generally focuses on preparing
meals for individuals, though
she also works at large events.
Ms. Boswell-Herda is affili-
ated with the Tree Steak House,
which-has locat-ions4n Jackson-
ville and, Atlantiew Beach.- She-
says she was drawn to Macclen-
ny by its similarity to the small
town where she grew up.
In other business before the
board, ABBA Ministries was
unanimously granted permis-
sion to open a counseling center
at 134 N. 5th St in Macclenny.
ABBA counsels those recover-
ing from drug, alcohol and other
addictions. All counselors are
volunteers.
Again, no one spoke in op-
position to the counseling cen-
ter, which ABBA officials said
would attract, at most, 20 people
for group sessions.
Todd Ferreira was unani-
mously granted a zoning vari-
ance for an office he's renovating
at Chipshot Dr. in Macclenny.
Mr. Ferreira requested and was
granted permission to include

Dogs found

starving near

CR 229 home
A Sanderson man was named
in a criminal complaint June 29
for allegedly abandoning six
dogs at his residence off CR 229
for days without food and water.
Georgia Monfort, the coun-
ty's animal control officer, said
the animals were suffering from
malnutrition and owner Melburn
Bailey, 36, had been warned be-
fore about a similar situation.
The department received com-
plaints from neighbors about the
situation, and a crew from Clay
Electric Co-op also called to in-
quire what could be done.
Mr. ,Bailey had been seen at
the residence three times since
electricity was turned off last
month.
Ms. Monfort told Deputy
Gavin Sweat three of the animals
were vicious and were tranquil-
ized before being transported
to the animal shelter off Steel
Bridge Rd. Four of the animals
were tied to trees, one with just
over five feet of chain.
Another was found under a di-
lapidated mobile home with both
rear legs broken.
What food and water they
received came from a neighbor,
police were told.


only six parking spots at the of-
fice, a reduction from normal
levels.
According to Mr. Ferreira,
there is ample parking on a
nearby field, and the request
was made strictly for aesthetic
reasons; namely, he did not want
the facility to have as much con-
crete as is normally associated
with parking lots.
And Shameka Paige was
granted permission to open a


Man accused(


abuse oftwo sti
A 48-year old north Baker
County man was arrested on
July 2 and charged with sexually
--abusing two-step-daughters-over---
a six-year period. ...
The suspect, who is not be-
ing named to protect the identity
of the step-daughters, now 16
and 17 years old, was arrested
at county jail late that day af-
ter sheriff's investigator Brad
Dougherty questioned him and
both alleged victims. The step-
father denied the allegations.
The investigator said police
were first tipped off by the moth-
er of a friend of the 16-year-old
girl, who found a letter from her
in her daughter's bedroom and
turned it over to Deputy Tracie
Benton. Investigator Dougherty
went to the suspect's home north
of Sanderson, and both the ac-
cused and step-daughter agreed
to be questioned at the sheriff's
annex.
In the letter, the younger vic-
tim described explicit sexual ac-
tivity that began about six years
ago and halted last April. She
also related in an interview that
her step-father told her he would
kill her family when he got out of
jail if he was ever arrested.
The child's mother was pres-
ent at the Monday interview

Federal charges pending


against Sanderson man


ASanderson man is in federal
custody this week following his
indictment by a Jacksonville
grand jury on June 21 for con-
spiracy to distribute cocaine in
both powder and solid (crack)
forms.
John D. (Rocky) Blanton, 43,
is held without bond pending a
detention hearing before a US
magistrate later this month. It is
:not known if the US Attorney's
-office will seek to keep him in
*jail while it looks into other po-
tential accomplices in what was
-described as a distribution ring
that operated in Baker and other
counties.
Mr. Blanton, arrested during
.a search warrant raid at his resi-
dence off Mud Lake Rd. east of
:CR 228 in late April, was taken
back into custody on June 25.
The earlier arrest of Mr. Blanton,
*and Jason Oralls, 32, of Glen St.
.Mary was for possessing cocaine
with intent to distribute. The lo-
.cal charges against Mr. Blanton
were dropped in favor of the
broader federal indictment.
Randy Crews, a Baker County
investigator on loan to a multi-
county federal drug task force,
declined further comment on
circumstances surrounding the
federal case, but hinted at "the
potential for further arrests" as
the investigation progresses.
As borne out by the dozens
of federal drug cases made in
the early 1990s, including that
against former sheriff Joe New-
mans, federal authorities often
initially arrest key defendants


before casting a wider net for
co-conspirators based on infor-
mation obtained from them. Of-
ten plea agreements are part of
the process.


Last Sawmill

man sentenced
The last of 15 defendants in
the 2005 federal drug conspiracy
case known as "Operation Saw-
mill" was sentenced June 19 in
Jacksonville to 140 months in
prison.
James Dewaye Merrett, 43 at
the time of his arrest in February
of that year, was one of the key
defendants in the conspiracy
case that resulted from a local,
state and federal task force ac-
tive over a number of years. The
other key defendant, his younger
brother John Merrett, is current-
ly serving a federal sentence.
The case was so named be-
cause the Merrett brothers oper-
ated a sawmill on the Georgia
side of the St. Mary's River in
Nassau County, and from that
location directed a smuggling
and distribution ring for both
methamphetamines and mari-
juana.
Their operational network for
importing the drugs stretched to
Mexico and southern. Califor-
nia.
The indictment also included
several Baker County residents,
some also currently in prison.

City of Macclenny I Enterprise East
2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
This report will be mailed to customers only upon request and is also available at City Waste Water Treatment Plant and on the City's website at www.
cityofmacclenny.com

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Quality Water Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of water and services we deliver to you every day.
Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treat-
ment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. Our water is obtained from ground water sources and is aerated and chlorinated for disinfection purposes.
In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of
contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.us/swapp.
This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Richard Harris or Walter Sloan at 904-259-4491. We encourage our valued customers to
be informed about their water utility, If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month at City
Hall at 7 pm.
The City of Macclenny routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this
report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2006. Data obtained before January 1, 2005, and presented in this report are from

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through
the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or
farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban
stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health,
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate
that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemo-
therapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These
people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporldium and other
microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at City of Macclenny would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to Insur-
ing the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

take it numerous times and get
emotionally beaten down by it.
The best thing about ACT is
how it restores confidence, self-
esteem and initiative," said Ms.
Canady.
Although ACT is perfor-
mance-based, it does not impact
the grade given to Baker High
by the state. Where the impact is
obvious, according to Dr. Webb,
is in the over-all county gradua-
tion rate.
"This preparation and testing
is enabling students to receive a
diploma who would not other-
wise," she said. "In that way it is
changing their life."
Participating in WIA and go-
ing through the ACT training is
not a substitute for FCAT. All
students are mandated by law to
receive FCAT instruction.
FCAT is very generalized,
said Robin Mobley, the district's
curriculum director. "And it is
not 'concrete sequential.' It sim-
ply doesn't reflect all a student
may know."
Students have the benefit of
being able to prepare more in
depth for ACT testing which
in turn could raise their FCAT
scores. Results of ACT scores
are available more quickly then
FCAT, which helps identify ar-
eas in which students need re-
medial work.
To be eligible for participa-
tin in WIA, a student must have
failed FCAT testing three times
and also be on track to complete
one of the district's ten vocation-
al programs.
Caleb Bedell and Cory Nor-
berg, two seniors that recently
successfully completed the WIA
program and received their di-
plomas, were recognized at
Monday's meeting.
Mr. Bedell will be training in
Ocala soon as a fire fighter and
Mr. Norberg has interviewed
with Wal-Mart Distribution
Center and plans to attend FCCJ
in the fall.

NASCAR back at


Daytona

There are two times a year
,when area NASCAR fans are
beside themselves with anticipa-
tion. The Daytona 500, the start
of the stock car racing season
is one of them. This weekend's
Pepsi 400 is the other.
The 400 at the Daytona Inter-
national Speedway is a great way
to celebrate July 4th because it is
always full of firecracker excite-
ment. In fact, before the age of
sponsorship, this race was called
the Firecracker 400.
If you need a little more in-
centive to take in this race, it will
be the last time that Dale Earn-
hardt Jr. will strap on a helmet at
Daytona as a driver for DEI. The
next time he fires up the engine
at Daytona it will be in a Hen-
dricks Motorsports car.
Tony Stewart will be trying
for his third straight 400 win and
as unlikely as that will be, Stew-


or the 400

art is racing well enough for it to
happen.
Over 20 former Daytona win-
ners will be on hand this week-
end to mark the 25th anniversary
of the race. There's plenty going
on.
