Tyler Rhoden drafted into the big leagues
BY BOB GERARD
S- Press Sports
p There's no rest for the weary when you're a base-
ball player aspiring to a spot in The Show the major
leagues. For Macclenny native Tyler Rhoden it was
plane trip from Nashville to Billings, Montana.
Flush from an SEC championship with the Van-
derbilt Cormnodores, Rhoden was selected by the
Cincinnati Reds as the 679 player chosen in the major '
league draft and sent to their rookie league affiliate,
the Billings Mustangs.
He was strong throughout the rest or the game ana
picked up a save for his effort. Rhoden pitched four
innings of no-hit ball and had three strike-outs.
The rookie leagues are like a giant classroom
for a baseball player. Rhoden will learn a lot and
hopefully progress up through the ranks of single
A, double AA and triple AAA ball on the way to
He has had a lot of success in his young career,
going to the Vanderbilt Commodores after a strong
career pitching for the Bolles Bulldogs. The right-

Macclenny, Florida 50W
BY ANDREW BARE
So far as the city of Mac-
clenny is concerned, the gold-
en arches of McDonald's are
The city commission unani-
mously decided at its monthly
meeting Tuesday to move for-
ward with a code enforcement
challenge against the local
McDonald's branch located on
South Sixth St. The end result
of that challenge would likely
be the closure of the branch's
heavily trafficked Barber Road
During peak hours, cars
waiting in line at the restau-
rant's drive-through lane leak
out into Barber Road, block-
ing traffic attempting to turn
onto, or off of, South Sixth.
Commissioner Phillip Rhoden,
who lives in the neighborhood
and has been pursuing the is-
sue since March, said Monday
that McDonald's had made no
progress in alleviating the traf-
"I don't see any change from
where we were," he said.
The commission alleges that
McDonald's has been arrogant
and imperious in its attitude to-
ward the city, frequently refus-
ing to respond to complaints.
Commissioner Rhoden said he
felt "insulted," and commis-
sioner Floyd Bennett echoed
"If these people don't care
anything about our ordinances,
we need to make clear that we
care," Bennett said.
At the commission's meet-
ing on June 12, the city grant-
ed McDonald's request for 15
days to solve the problem. At
the time, the company indi-
cated that it could relieve the
traffic congestion by improv-
ing efficiency in the store and
keeping its drive-through lane
fully staffed. Commissioner
Rhoden was skeptical at the
City attorney Frank Malo-
ney told the commissioners
they would be in troublesome
legal waters if they simply at-
tempted to close down the
Barber Road entrance. It was
his recommendation, adopted

Scene of 2006 accident on 1-10 that resulted in DUI manslaughter sentencing.
Three years for DUI
in 2006 traffic fatality
BY ANDREW BARE
A Virginia woman was sen-
tenced to three years in state
prison July 2 on charges aris-
ing from a fatal car crash on
Interstate 10 in 2006.
After a Florida Highway Pa-
trol investigation determined
Michelle Anderson was driving
drunk during the May 18,2006
crash that killed friend and
passenger Jayne Dacquisto,
she was arrested and charged
with DUI manslaughter. Last
week she pled no contest to the
charges and was sentenced by
Judge Phyllis Rosier.
On the day of the crash, Ms.
Anderson was driving to Des-
tin, Fla. to attend the wedding
of Ms. Dacquisto's brother. At
10:00 am, while driving on I-

Blood tests later revealed that
Ms. Anderson, who was also
not wearing her seat belt, had
a blood-alcohol level of .187,
significantly above the state
limit of .008. Ms. Anderson
later told police she had been
drinking rum and Coke, and
some witnesses who assisted
at the scene said she smelled
strongly of alcohol.

Bethlchem Baptist observes its centennial year
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staffm a,
Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church near Sanderson turned 100 years old on July 7.
It's not everyday that a church congregation celebrates a centennial anniversary of its
founding. Approximately 125 people attended the special observance that took a year to
plan and drew many former members, family and friends some from far distances.
Aubrey McCormick served as elder and moderator of the congregation for over 30'
years beginning in 1972. His family wanted to make the occasion as special for their
father as possible.
Daughter Teresa Simmons held what she calls "The Miracle Book," the first in a
series of ledgers in which the church's official monthly business records have been re-
corded, beginning in 1907.
"There is an unbelievable story associated with this book," she says as she holds it in
her hands, looking at it with awe.
Twelve years ago, Ms. Simmons' daughter Tina decided to transcribe the records in
the church ledger onto a computer disk. She wanted to do this as a gift for her "Pa Pa."
Mysteriously, the ledger disappeared and repeated attempts to find it were unsuccess-
"My daughter cried when she had to tell her Pa Pa the book was gone. Over the years,
I went through room again and again and never found the ledger. It confounded me no
The Monday before the celebration, Ms. Simmons was at home when suddenly she
was seized by an urge to go into the room, something she rarely did since her children
had grown up and moved away. When she entered, there was the ledger lying on the
bentwood rocker where her daughter used to sit and crochet.
"I called my daughter and told her and she started crying over the phone." said Ms.
Simmons. She recounted the incident to the current pastor, Mark Nunley, telling him
she couldn't understand how the book, missing for 12 years, has just suddenly appeared
and at this particular time. He smiled at her and said, "Sister Teresa, I believe you know
exactly how that book got there, if you get my meaning."

The prodigal ledger is now back with its companion ledgers in a trunk for safe-keep-
On the morning of the centennial, several elders escorted Aubrey McCormick to the
pulpit. He stood as his father, former pastor Elder John

"He was drafted in the 22nd round," said his moth-
er Jane Rhoden. "He flew home after he was drafted
and we had a signing party for him."
The 6'3" 220-pound son of Jane and Jamie Rhoden
of Macclenny has had some good outings in his early
going with the Mustangs. Though he pitched in only
four games for the Mustangs, he has already notched
a win and was crucial in stopping a three-game win
streak for the Great Falls White Sox.
Rhoden came into the game in the fifth inning and
retired the first six Sox he faced, striking out two.

Local band gets gig at warp..
(From page 1)
"I want it to be the start of
something big," said Cannon,
strumming on his guitar.
"This is our moon landing,"
declared Gerard. "We hope that
this will be our launch."
Bands entering the competi-
tion were separated by region
to compete for spots on one of
the 70 stops on the tour. Of the
thousands of entries only about
300 were chosen nationwide to
play the tour's Ernie Ball Stage.
Only a handful made it to the
Warped Tour's Florida stops in
Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa
Cannon couldn't believe it
when he got the call at work on
his cell phone. "They asked if
we would like to play the tour
and I said, 'Like, are you kid-
The band kept the selection
a secret, not even telling their
friends and girlfriends until
announcing it during a show
at Fuel in Jacksonville's Five
Points. They got a big ovation
from the crowd.
Soapbox Havoc was formed
in 2006 and steadily built up a
local and area following. Their
MySpace page has allowed
them to reach a larger audience
and they have received messag-
es from all over the US, Canada,
the UK and Holland.
The band started with Baker
High pals Gerard and Cannon on
guitar and lead vocals, Griffis on
drums and backup vocals, and
bass player Jordan Crews. When
Crews left for college, they add-
ed Wicker, who has been play-
ing bass in gospel bands most
of his life. He was the perfect fit
for the group, adding energy and
fun to their stage show.

The band characterizes its
music as alternative rock. Ge-
rard and Cannon write the songs
and the band arranges the music.
The music often changes form
as they hone it in practice and
during their live shows.
Gerard and Cannon bring the
new songs to band practice and
they start to work on the raw
music, adding layer on layer.
"Dylan and Blake introduce
it to the band. They give me the
basics they give me the cake
and I put the cream on it," said
Wicker with a laugh. -
Each player adds his own
style to the music. "If it's a song
I've written, Blake elaborates
on what I've already done," said
Gerard. Griffis adds a bottom on
drums and then Wicker adds the
bass line. The music continues
to change and adapt throughout
practice sessions and even when
they take the stage the song
doesn't always stay the same.
"The more you play on stage
you find things that sound bet-
ter. There should be a difference
between a CD and a live perfor-
mance," said Cannon.
Earlier this year they re-
corded a four-song demo. At the
same time as they were record-

Hike in Glen's assets with water system equipment
The Town of Glen St. Mary
added $277,074 to its net asset
column during fiscal year 2006,
bringing to total up to $1.8 mil-
In addition, a recently com-
pleted audit reflects a reduction
in the general fund balance for
the same period of $105,535 and
transfer of $80,333 from a pro-
priety fund to compensate for
lower revenues than expected.
The net asset increase, accord-
ing to Clay Lyons of the contract
auditing firm Lyons and Lyons
of Macclenny, represents the ad-
dition of assets from the town's
central water system.

Mr. Kish was "thrashing the
child around'in his arms."
The officer threatened to use
his taser on Mr. Kish, who al-
legedly said that wouldn't both-

Whitaker, when he removed the
taser from his holster, Mr. Kish
turned around and used his son
as a human shield.
Eventually, Mr. Kish did hand
over his son. Jennifer Kish told
police the incident was the end

significant injuries. The incident
was reported two days later and
the state attorney's office will
decide whether to file a criminal
against fraud. The criticism is
common in smaller governmen-
tal agencies, and Mayor Juanice
Padgett in a June 18 response to
Florida's auditor general prom-
ised "additional controls."
Other audit highlights:
Total assets, the bulk in capi-
tal assets like utilities and equip-
ment, of $2.9 million;
Current assets of $513,000,
the bulk in $350,000 invested in
certificates of deposit;
Long term debt in the form
of bonds used for water and sew-
er (along US 90) construction
and equipment at $1.04 million.
Glen's current indebtedness runs
through 2044, and with interest
added amounts to $2.186 mil-
Glen spent $25,202 more in
the governmental funds category
than it took in last year. The audit
reflects expenses of $225,835,
the bulk of it in general govern-
ment at $176,700, and took in
$200,633. Utilities, sales and gas
taxes accounted for the largest
revenue category at $132,586.
In other business conducted
last month, the council agreed
with its lawyer and counsel for
the owners of 19.5 acres along
US 90 at the east town limits to
seek a PUD (planned urban de-
velopment) before the tract is
sold to another owner. A hearing
had been set for the evening of
June 19 to change the property to
Hugh Fish, representing pe-
titioner, and Glen's counsel Joel

broader PUD gives the town

'Ungeeking' because ofiPhone Unregistered, un-insured

MY SIDE OF
I wouldn't call myself a tech-
nology geek, but up until last
week there were signs that it
might be true.
I have, after all, been able
to program my VCR to record
while I sleep ever since the tech-
nology came out in the 1980s.
That's was my first stop on the
train toward Geekdom. Also:
V I own more than one lap-
top and know how to use them.
V I have developed websites
that actually work. Youch! Seri-
V I own a digital camera, an
iPod and can download video to
my computer and turn it into a
DVD. Next stop, Geek Central.
But then, last week my Geek
I refuse to own an iPhone.
I know, for someone at my
geekness level, this sounds a bit
like heresy. I'm in danger of be-
ing banished forever to the land
of the unHip.
But I now must admit it. I
don't own an iPhone and I don't
For those who have been liv-
ing on another planet the last
month, the iPhone is the latest
uberhot technology gizmo to
come out of Apple labs in Cali-
fornia. It's the phone that does
everything with style and grace.
It's a "must have" for the tech-
nology elite and the young, and
the hip celebs who people Peo-
ple magazine. It is an iPod, surfs
the Internet, takes high quality
photos, does instant messaging
and yes, actually makes phone
So, why don't I want one?

but an Apple geek. My comput-
ers are Macs and I love the com-

I would like to address the individuals who wrote in about the ATV
activity (The Press, June 28).
I don't live in their neighborhood, but ATV use is not exclusive to
their area. Safety in the use of these vehicles depends on the individual
driving. In our neighborhood off Crews Rd., many children and adults
ride these vehicles, some responsibly and some with a great degree of
recklessness. One family's children were riding their ATV, and one of
their daughters came up from behind my vehicle, cut me off and drove
off. I remained silent about the incident.
The next time, I was returning home with my family. Most of
us driye slowly on our little dirt road because children ride their bikes
on it and it's not wide enough anyway to go 30-40 mph. As I rounded
the comer, I saw the same child speeding down the road on the wrong
side. I stopped my truck and she almost ran into me head-on.
I called the police because due to her recklessness and her parents'
negligence, if she had run into my vehicle she would have hurt herself
and caused damage to my vehicle. Had that happened, it would have
been necessary to call the police, and also rescue to take her to the
Other children ride through other peoples' property without
permission. We all have at least 2.5 acres out here, enough for them to
stay on their property. But I guess their parents prefer for them to put
ruts in the roads that we drive on rather than to contain the activity to
their own property, which would be more considerate and safe.
The irresponsible parties are not only the children; we have adults
who are worse. Like the guy riding his ATV on Crews Rd, while walk-
ing his dog on a leash, or the one riding on Odis Yarbrough Rd (a paved
road I believe that's illegal). I honked the horn to let him know I
was behind him and passing, and instead of pulling over to the right he
turned right in front of my vehicle as I was passing him to the left.
Or like the four teenagers piled onto one ATV on the streets of Glen
St. Mary, who did a wheelie as they ran the stop sign. What if one of
them fell off in front of a moving vehicle?
We should keep in mind that these are unregistered, un-insured
vehicles. They do not belong on the roads with regular vehicles. If they
cause an accident or injury, they will ride off. If they become injured in
an accident, they will sue the driver with the "insured vehicle."

Plus, the iPhone is the hot-
test thing on the market. People
stood in line for days to get one.
Stores had security guys walking
the lucky purchases to their cars
so they wouldn't get mugged or
pelted with stones by the dis-
gruntled techies still in line.
All the hip celebrities are
flashing them on the red carpet
or at the trendiest digs in NY
So why not me?
Time for the truth, to strip
away that false veneer of techli-
ness I've built up over the years.
I'm convinced I couldn't work
I've watched the commercials
on TV and on the web and I am
It looks so easy, a little bit
too easy. It's like Gabby Hayes
turning to John Wayne in Stage-
coach right before the Indian at-
tack and saying, "It's quiet out
here. A little bit too quiet."
I'm convinced that the iPhone
is the Indian attack that would
topple my technological house
There's reason for me to think
I am not very cell phone-sav-
vy. I hate to talk on telephones
and I'm not a very good chatter.
As a result, I don't use my cell
phone very much and when I do
it's only to make a phone call
- not to text or take pictures or
check my e-mail. Just a simple
I used to have one of those
fancy cell phones, a Treo. It's
similar to a Blackberry only
more so. I'm convinced I could
have launched missiles with the
thing if I could have figured out
how to use it. But I couldn't.
The Treo did everything and
iPhone does, but with fewer bells
and whistles. Pictures, messag-
ing, Internet, e-mail.
You could do it all. Not me.
My thumbs cramped up if I tried
to send a text message and there's
no telling where my attempts at
sending e-mails wound up. Cer-
tainly not with the people who
were supposed to receive them.
Finally, after months of stum-
bling and bumbling, I gave up
and went to the phone store and
handed them the thing and said,
"Give me the simplest, most ba-
sic cell phone on the market. I
want a phone that does absolute-
ly nothing except make phone
They looked at me like I was
At that point my techogeek
mask fell to the floor and shat-
tered, and I was revealed for
what I truly am. A phony. A
fake. A poser. Someone more
at home in the era of big clunky
black rotary dial phones than
Now I'm worried.
I'm afraid the next time I try
to record a television program,
instead of Jericho or Heroes I'll
get Rachel Ray or Bridezillas.
I'm worried that I won't be
able to turn on my iPod or re-
start my computer. I'll become
techophobic like most people
my age and run from computers
and fax machines.
All because of the iPhone.

During a recent foraging ses-
sion at Franklin Mercantile, I
pulled open a cupboard.drawer
arid found, to my delight, a col-
Jection of cloth aprons from the
1950s. One was so exquisitely
made, it was pretty enough to
wear to a party over a skirt. This
apron had been lovingly kept and
was in pristine condition, prob-
ably used only occasionally dur-
ing preparations of holiday din-
ners or bridal shower luncheons.
Tiny flowers, juxtaposed
against a background pattern in
shades of light pink decorated
a panel of fabric that had been
painstakingly gathered and sewn
to a slender waistband. One
small pocket, just large enough
to accommodate a ring or other
tiny object, was the only adorn-
ment. This was expertly crafted
and featured a border of tiny
red ric-rac. Aprons were worn
to protect dresses, but often re-
sembled an old fashioned, frilly,
valentine rather than the utilitar-
ian objects they were crafted to
be. Being hand-made and deco-
rated, they carried a personal
expression of the homemaker's
femininity, even as they shielded
her from grime, stains, spills
I loved my grandmother's
aprons and always dug one out
to wear when I visited her coun-
try house and puttered around
in her small kitchen. Her full-
sized aprons had to be wrapped
around my. child's body like a
tortilla and the sashes tied with
double looped bows to keep
them from dragging on the
floor. So bedecked, I'd stand on
a stool and watch as she mixed
flour, milk, baking powder and
lard together, blending them in
that special alchemy that yielded
the hot, fluffy, crusty domes of
white pastry that we smothered
with butter, jelly, cane syrup and
Wearing aprons slowly fell out
of fashion as prepackaged and
convenience foods displaced the
intimate hands-on activities of
cooking, and wearing jeans dis-
placed skirts and dresses in the
kitchen. When women joined
the workforce in droves during
the 1970s, aprons began to dis-
appear. Working mothers were
less inclined to spend time in the
kitchen time that now had to
be devoted to dealing with com-
muter traffic and driving chil-
dren to a ridiculous amount of
Today, companies like Stitch
Through Time produce old fash-
ioned full- and half-aprons from
vintage style print cloth. These
new creations from traditional
patterns are not cheap, starting
at about $44. Original.apron
patterns, however, are still avail-
able from some companies in
all those classic designs full
bib and half, cobbler, full dress
wrap, petal, pinafore and many
still include original transfer and
applique designs. Be prepared to
pay for the patterns because they
aren't cheap either from $16
to $45 plus shipping.
If you are overcome with
nostalgia at this point and want
to order you can find them at
sovintagepatterns.com. Ebay is
a source to find vintage aprons
also. Hopefully you are lucky
and some of these jewels have
been kept and passed down in
your family. I'm glad I found
mine in the Franklin Mercantile,
a place I love dearly. My pretty
little apron has gotten me back
into baking and enjoying my tiny
kitchen and just being at home.
Recently, as I greeted a neigh-
bor passing by my open door,
he stopped and asked me what
I was doing, intently eyeing my
pink apron with the roses and
"I just made a blackberry pie
from scratch," I told him proud-
ly. "You know, with the lattice
pastry on top like your grandma
used to make."
He looked at the laundry,
pegged with old-fashioned
clothes pins, billowing in the
breeze on the line in the side
"You don't use a clothes dry-
"Yep, but I also love the smell
of sun dried sheets and towels."
"Girl, you better watch out,"
he told me, laughing. "Some
Baker County guy is gonna mar-
ry up on you!"

Ellis McCormick, had stood for many years when he, too, had been
called out as a young man to preach. Mr. McCormick was silent for a
moment, looking out over his former flock, then was moved to tears.
"My heart is made to rejoice this morning at your presence," he
said. "Several of my church sisters once told me they wanted me to
serve as long as they lived and I was blessed to be able to do that for
them. I'm so thankful for those 30 years I stood here before God's
Humor quickly replaced the tears. In his soft voice, Mr. McCor-
mick went on to describe the building of the second sanctuary which
was erected in'1985. With help from different folks in the congrega-
tion, the old building, which had once had ten feet added to each
side, was torn down. He recalled with .1,
a chuckle how he was pulling on a
single pole inside the sanctuary when "
it let loose and the entire ceiling fell
in on their heads.
A neighbor of Mr. McCormick's
had bought cement block to build a -
new home, then decided against it. --
He was anxious to get the stacks of
block out of his yard. '
"Well, I believe I can accommo-
date it for you," Mr. McCormick told -.
him and that was how Bethlehem Original church and cement
Primitive Baptist acquired the initial
building materials for a new church. Other people in the community
were also helpful in raising the roof of the new sanctuary and there
were many incidents of generosity which the congregation believes
were divinely orchestrated.
"Brother Ora Davis and I would be completely out of building ma-
terials and wondering how we could continue, when someone pass-
ing by would stop and give some money. They'd just show up, look
around and say 'Here, put that on the roof,' or 'Put that on the porch.'
It was amazing," said Mr. McCormick.
When the date arrived to dedicate the new building, 36 visiting
elders preached over two days during the first service.
As the centennial service began, Elder Jim Stanlin kneeled out of
sight behind the altar so that only his resonating voice was heard as he
prayed earnestly for the church, its congregation and its future:
"We thank you God, for this little place ... bless this little place ...
touch and tender each and every heart here today ..."
Elder John Myzell was moved to preach on the significance of
"The Great Rainbow" and the covenant God made with humanity
after the flood destroyed the earth. Elder Raybon Lord then took his
place in the pulpit and was inspired to speak based on Psalm 127: Un-
less the Lord builds the house, our labors all are in vain.
"I love the doctrine this church has stood for during the last one
hundred years," he declared.
After listening to Elders Myzell and Lord speak, Bethlehem's pas-
tor Elder Nunley, announced to the congregation, "I believe I have
been fed (spiritually) and my cup runneth over." Many voices echoed
his sentiments. Singing concluded the preaching, as the entire congre-
gation marched in single file in a specific pattern around the sanctu-
ary, allowing each person to acknowledge the elders. Members also
passed a table where, if so moved, they left a donation of "a little
something" on the table for the visiting elders to cover travel expens-
es. Many heart-felt hugs were exchanged.
Music in the Primitive Baptist tradition is deceptively simplistic
in its structure. There are no instruments, but it is rich with metered
rhythm, cadence and harmony. Amazing Grace, which was sung twice
during the service in this fashion, was truly amazing.

a tradition at the church and is served at meetings and on special oc-
For E.J. Stafford, who attended the church as a young man, it was
the first time he had been back in over 60 years.
"Well, Brother Stafford," said Elder Nunley, "I'm glad you remem-
bered the way."
Lydie and Everett Davis remember the baptisms that took place be-
hind the church in a section of Green's Creek called the "wash hole."
People would gather on the bank and begin singing. They held a blan-
ket between them which they lifted up to their chins. The blanket
blocked their vision and the person being baptized would slip under
the blanket and change clothes out of view. After the service, children
got to change into bathing suits and go swimming.
"I remember the out houses had those little half moons cut out of
the door to let in a speck of light, said Ms. Davis. "And oh, what a

he recalled how he rode his yearling bull to the meetings.
"There was also a lady who lived nearby and I loved to aggravate

Muriel Roberts, Mr. McCormick's sister, had her own store of hu-
"I'll never forget the time some teenagers trespassed on the prop-
erty and the prank they pulled. They scooped out the "innards" of the
out houses and left it all on the front door step to greet us," she said.
"I also remember my sister Betty June, who was three, being told
by our mother, 'When daddy hushes up his preaching, then we can
eat.' The child promptly stood up in the middle of preaching, put her
.hands on her hips and said 'Daddy, shut your mouth!"'
As Elder Nunley packed up his car's trunk for the ride home to Fer-
nandina Beach, he looked around the quiet countryside that surrounds
Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church and declared, "I can't speak for
anyone else, but in my book, this has been-a wonderful day!"

said Macclenny was in a "very

According to the audit, pre-
pared by Greg Lyons, Macclen-

$605,103 from October 2005 to
Mr. Lyons did note in the audit
that from January 2006 through
September, the city pumped
more than 31 million gallons of
water that were hot accounted
for. Lyons and Lyons urged the
city to closely monitor its water
output, as this figure accounted
for more than 10 percent of the
city's water pumping during the
nine month period.
Lyons also said that Mac-
clenny should attempt to hire
more staff in an effort to keep
city employees from having ac-
cess to both physical assets and
their related accounting records.
But the audit emphasized that no
significant errors were found.
The commissioners unani-
,mously adopted ,o.p ;first jread-

of land bordered on the north
by Charlie Rowe Drive and on
the south by Ray Phillips Road.
The owners of the property said
Tuesday they were asking for
annexation in an effort to make
the land as appealing as possible
to future developers.
While everyone involved em-
phasized that no specific devel-
oper was interested, the land is
ideally suited west of Lowder
Street and should draw the eyes
of potential buyers.
The commissioners also
agreed to annex seven tracts
of land near the Wal-Mart Su-

even if defendants correct violations
BY ANDREW BARE
The Baker County Code
Enforcement Board is likely a
month away from establishing
new policies that would take a
harder line against code viola-
The board discussed possible
actions at the end of its regular
monthly meeting Monday night,
chief among them charging
violators for the cost of county
expenses, even if they clean up
their property before their case
comes up for discussion. Cur-
rently, if Code Enforcement
Officer Phil Thomas receives
a complaint about a property,
he inspects the land and deter-
mines if there's a violation. If
there is, he mails a certified let-
ter to the owner of the property;
Mr. Thomas said at Monday's
meeting the cost of such a letter
is over $5. And CEB Chairman
Jim McGauley said the high cost
of gasoline made Mr. Thomas'
trips increasingly expensive for
If the owner of the property
does hot bring the violation into
compliance, Mr. Thomas sends
off another letter, warning that
the case could be brought before
the CEB. And if, in Mr. Thomas'
estimation, the owner remains
non-compliant, he sends off a
third and final letter, informing
them of their hearing date be-
fore the board.
As Baker County has grown,
code violations have also in-
creased. Where initially the
county's building inspector act-
ed as its code enforcement of-
ficer, Mr. Thomas now does the
job full-time. The CEB has re-
cently become concerned about
the cost to the county of its pro-
cess. As it stands, violators are
not asked to cover the county's
expenses, if they clean up their
property before their first meet-
ing with the board.
But board attorney John
Broling pointed out there were
five cases on Monday's.agenda
where the owners brought the
properties into compliance be-
fore the meeting, and he was
forced to spend time drawing up
legal paperwork on all of them.
So the board might choose to
charge the cost of all that labor
to the violators. But that possi-
bility is currently just that. Other
suggestions include eliminating
the second letter Mr. Thomas
sends to violators; according to
Mr. Broling, who also works
for the city of Starke as its code
enforcement attorney, other mu-
nicipalities don't bother with
And tlfere was some discus-
sion of finding a middle path be-
tween the current system and the
hard-line approach. The board
might, for example, set a dead-
line between the second and
the third letter and say that any
property owner who cleans up
his land before that date would
be free from paying the county's
The CEB tabled the discus-
sion until next month's meet-
ing, scheduled for August 13, in
order to give board members a
chance to come up with concrete
proposals. Attorney Broling will
also do further research.
In cases the board did dis-
cuss Monday, John Thomas was
given 15 more days to clean up
the debris that resulted when he
demolished an illegal mobile
home on his property behind
James Britt Road northwest of
Macclenny. Mr. Thomas, who
did not attend the meeting, had
asked for a 10-day extension.
The board also gave Martha
Stafford 30 days to clean up
property belonging to friend
Richard Garcia. However, as
Mr. Garcia owns the property
and Ms. Stafford is merely
cleaning it up before purchasing
it, the board made clear that she
would not be fined. According
to Ms. Stafford, a cross-country
trucker, Mr. Garcia had allowed
several teenagers to live on the
land rent-free in exchange for
keeping the property clean. Ac-
cording to Mr. Thomas, they
had failed to do so. Ms. Stafford
has been working to clean the
property ever since its state was
brought to her attention.

In Loving Memory
Who left us on 7/11/06
God saw you getting tired,
when a cure was not to be,
He closed His arms around you
and whispered "Come to me".
Through tears we saw you sink-
ing, we watched you. slip away.
Our hearts were sadly broken;
you fought so hard to stay.-
But when we saw you sleeping,
so peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back
with us to suffer so again?
So keep your arms around him,
Lord, and give him special care.
Make up for all he suffered and
all that seemed unfair.

to the Pepsi 400. It was the first
race for both of us in a long time.
(funny how a child can change
your priorities and lifestyle).
The first speed bump in our
trip was making sure we had
coolers the right size to be taken
into the track. Our check online
confirmed our current cooler
was way too big, which neces-
sitated a trip to Wal-Mart to find
the right size. Obviously the
folks in the concession depart-
ment had a hand in the cooler
size. If you can't bring in but six
canned drinks, you have to buy
their drinks at a 250% markup.
What a money maker!.
We waited until later in the
evening to drive down, and took
advantage of the free parking and
shuttle service. There were a lot
of people, but the wait was short
and we were able to head straight
to the track with only about a
mile walk once they dropped us
off. We headed straight for our
seats since the race would soon
start. They were in the Lockhart
Tower, which is nice because you
are high enough to see almost
the whole track. Unfortunately,
the Jumbotron closest to us was
too far away and not angled well
enough to see unless you had
binoculars (which. I did).
The pre-race ceremonies were
fun. During driver introductions,
names like Martin, Truex, Stew-
art, Harvick and Eamhardt Jr.
were cheered by all. As usual
Gordon, the Bush brothers, and
Jimmie Johnson got quite a few
boos. I think it's just habit now
for fans. Giving credit where
credit is due, Gordon and the
others are very talented drivers,
just not well liked.
Richard Petty was a special
honoree at this year's Pepsi 400
and it was amusing because he
rode in the back of the truck
with Jeff Gordon during driver
introductions. People seemed
hesitant to boo Gordon for fear
of offending Richard Petty. I'm
sure he knew none of it was di-
rected at him.
The best thing about NAS-
CAR fans is their sense of patrio-
tism and respect for our country.
When the invocation was given
everyone stood and removed
their hats. They remained stand-
ing during the lovely rendition of
the National Anthem. The young
winner of "America's Got Tal-
"He calls us at 2 o'clock in the
morning after games to tell us
how it went," said Jane Rhoden.
The Rhoden family is chomping
at the bit to go out to see him.
They will catch a game later
this summer when the Mustangs
travel to Salt Lake City.
If all goes well, we could be
.seeing Tyler Rhoden a little clos-
er on the mound for Cincin-
nati in years to come.
r 32,000 HP
e night race
ent" did the song justice.
The fly over was awesome;
the jets came from behind us
and were flying low. Everyone's
eardrums rattled but it was great,
and brought a tear to my eye. It
is a reminder of how lucky we
Americans are to have the free-
doms and ability to enjoy events
such as this, plus a reminder of
the cost others have paid for it.
Rudy Guiliani was there for
some "pre-race politician then
Kevin James from "The King of
Queens" gave the order, "Gen-
tleman, start your engines." He
was almost as good as Adam
Sandler very energetic and
Then the cars rolled off pit
road and onto the track. I'm not
a rowdy fan but there was lots
of hollering, betting and bicker-
ing going on during those first
pace laps before the green flag
dropped. There were passionate
Gordon, Stewart and Jr. fans in
our immediate vicinity and a lot
of ribbing going on. Then the
green flag dropped. Nobody sat
in their seat for the first 15 laps.
It's funny you pay so much
for these seats and hardly ever
sit. That's just part of the sport.
Hearing the roar of the cars as
they came around on lap 2 up to
speed made the hair stand up on
my arms. Of course, since our
favorite driver, Jr., was knocked
out early in the race we spent the
remainder of the three hour-plus
race rooting for several others.
In the end Jamie McMurray
edged out Kyle Bush in one of
the closest finishes in NASCAR
history and almost everyone
went home happy.
The trip back to the car was
long, and the shuttle service to
our car was a mass of thousands
of people all trying to get home.
Even though we were exhausted
it was a blast and I already can't
wait for next year.
