SLooming over the meet-
jigs was next January's state-
wide referendum on property
tax reform. At stake is a likely
$25,000 increase in Florida's
current $25,000 homestead
exemption. If approved, that
measure could have a dramatic
-negative impact on county rev-
enue; Baker County officials
have estimated that it could re-
sult in a loss of nearly $2 mil-
lion in property tax revenues.
The exemption increase
wouldn't affect Baker Coun-
ty's bottom line in 2008. But
county officials are striving to
get a jump on the situation by
cutting costs now.
"The governor's taking
money away," Commissioner
Alex Robinson said. "And it
may be pretty good this year.

Florida's Office of Vital Sta-

Florida infants died before cel-

that number, 15 were Baker
According to Sue Murphy,
coordinator of the Healthy Start,
program at the Baker County
Health Department since 1995,
the county's rate has tradition-
ally been lower.
"We've seen a sudden rise
in the rate over 2005-06," she
said. "Complications from pre-
mature births is the most com-
mon factor involved. However,
we believe this is a blip, not a
real trend. Previously, Baker
County has had a rate lower
than the state average."
The state of Florida man-
dates that Healthy Start in-
fant risk screenings be made
available to all women free
of charge. The screenings are
available here at the Baker
County Health Department.
It's not just a program for
low-income mothers as many
believe," said Ms. Myers. "It's
available to everyone."
The spectrum of clients is
broad, from young teenagers
to women in their 40s who
already have several children.

Mr. Robinson, expressed a
willingness to explore the possi-

I was ten years old. For weeks,
each time we passed the small
community center, I looked at
the sign which featured a large
green clover on a background
of white and the number 4, fol-
lowed by a capital H.
We settled into the commu-
nity of Cedar Creek and I soon
found myself immersed in the
local 4-H club, which met at the
center. The meaning of the clo-
ver sign was a mystery no lon-
I learned to bake corn meal
muffins and arrange flowers. I
raised chickens, became the club
secretary and in the summers
attended Camp Bob Cooper on
Lake Marion in Marion County.
The campers met at the South
Carolina state fairgrounds in
Columbia and made the four-
hour journey to camp in an un-
air conditioned school bus that
zoomed along at a hair-raising
speed of 40 miles per hour.
It was at camp I first learned
to make plaster casts of the
prints of wild animals and got up
early to try to capture the beauty
of sunrise on the lake with my
cheap Polaroid camera.
The boys in the camp took
great delight sneaking out late
at night to the girls' side of the
camp to make strange noises
and bump the walls of the bunk-
house and scare the snot out of
We collected leaves from the
different trees and pressed them
in a plant press to create scrap-
books. In the afternoons there
was always swimming.
I never could sew well. I
could, however sing a bit, and
mustered up the courage to be in
the camp talent show. I borrowed
a long dress from another camp-
er and sang the theme song from
the movie Born Free, which was
popular at the time.
I don't remember singing be-
cause I was nervous, but it must
have gone well. At the party af-
terwards, I got lots of compli-
ments and attention from the
campers and the counselors and
the cutest boy in the camp was
waiting for me by the door when
I arrived. He asked me to go for
a walk with him later, much to
the envy of the other girls.
4-H is an organization I will
always support because it pro-
vided me an opportunity for ex-

children, especially inner city
children, don't have.
In Macclenny, the 4-H craft
camp is taking place this week
at the ag center and going there
to photograph the children at
their activities brought back
some great memories.

Joy of cooking (with kids)

Today's parents and children

Technicality reduces 12-year prison term

Man uses money for doctor, not materials
The head of a Macclenny
construction company allegedly
used funds given to him to pay
for his wife's cancer treatments
instead of building materials.
Mark Taylor of Taylor Made
Homes told police July 31 that
he had paid Donald Boston, 32,
the head of D and B Exteriors,
$1,400 on May 14 to do some
work on one of Mr. Taylor's
construction sites. By the time
of the report, no work had been
Mr. Taylor said that when he
confronted Mr. Boston, the Mac-
clenny resident claimed to have
bought materials. Eventually Mr.
Taylor was forced to use another
company to finish the work. Mr.
Boston said he had returned the
materials to the store and had a
credit there. Mr. Taylor offered
to accept the credit in lieu of a
refund, as he needed the mate-
rials for another job. However,
Mr. Boston said he couldn't give
the credit to Mr. Taylor since it
was in his name.

Albert Kennedy told a simi-
lar story to police later that day.
He said he had paid Mr. Boston
over $6000 to build a screened-

cording to Mr. Kennedy, he be-
came suspicious and demanded
a receipt for the materials Mr.
Boston said he bought after
weeks passed with very little
work having been done.
The receipt Mr. Boston pre-
sented was from a company that
does not exist. Police have been
unable to locate Mr. Boston.

County employee health plan to
include $20 monthly contribution
BY ANDREW BARE
The Baker County Commis-
sion unanimously approved
Tuesday a new health plan for
county employees that requires
them to pay $20 monthly toward
the cost of health insurance.
County manager Joe Cone
still must negotiate the details
with the employee unions.
The new plan, crafted by an
insurance committee that reports
to the board, will feature re-imu-
bursements of up to $1.500 for
certain upper-level diagnostic
tests, such as \IRI, PET and
CAT scans and Ultrasound ex-
Common x-rays will not be
reimbursed. For inpatient hospi-
tal treatment, the employee pays
the first $200. After that, the em-
ployer reimburses a maximum
The committee decided once
again to renew with Avmed, a
Florida health plan provider. Ac-
cording to the committee's re-
port, Avmed gave Baker County
a good deal in agreeing to a 6.4
percent increase in the price of
its health policy. The insurance
committee said that looking for
a new deal on the open market
could have resulted in a price at
least 14 percent higher than the
For one year, a family plan
will cost an employee $1,030.46,
a 6.4 percent increase from the
Tim Owen, who presented
the committee's recommenda-
tions to the board, said Tuesday
that the $20 a month (or $10 per
pay period) will help fund the
account that reimburses employ-
ees for those diagnostic tests. "I
think that the insurance commit-
tee is an excellent thing," Mr.
Owen said. "Those hours of due
diligence have been reviewed by
department heads. A lot of ques-
tions, a lot of objections, a lot of
research and that's really what
a quality insurance committee
does. And I think the county has
an excellent insurance commit-
Mr. Owen also said that the
county was planning a health
fair for September 7. Employ-
ees will have a chance to receive
free health screenings, and also
be given information on their
new health plans.
In other business before the
board August 7, the commission
unanimously granted approval
for Sheriff Joey Dobson to pur-
sue a grant of more than $11,000
from the US Department of Jus-
tice. The grant, which will not
require any matching funds from
the county, will be used to pur-
chase larger bullet-proof vests
and a new dog for the county's
And the commission on Tues-
day declared August as "Baker
County Firefighter Appreciation
Month." The request for a proc-
lamation came from the Mus-
cular Dystrophy Association in
Jacksonville, which praised the
efforts of Baker County's fire-
fighters to raise money for mus-
cular dystrophy research.

Alleged shoplifter said
to have snorted cocaine
A woman charged with shop-
lifting on August 4 also told po-
lice she had snorted cocaine.
SDeputy Curtis Ruise was
called to Winn-Dixie in Mac-
clenny by an assistant manager.
The employee told Deputy Ruise
he was holding a woman who
had been caught shoplifting.
When the officer reached the
woman, Heather Mallory, 21, of
Sanderson, she was crying.
The officer said in his re-
port that Ms. Mallory admitted
to taking $179 in goods and to
having snorted cocaine at the
American Inn across South 6th
St.. The officer added that when
Ms. Mallory was placed in the
back of his car, she became up-
set and tried to kick the door.
The officer used a chemical
spray on the woman. She was
taken to Fraser Hospital, and af-
ter being medically cleared, Ms.
Mallory was taken to jail.

ed Glen St. Mary resident Seb-
rina Oralls, 32, and charged her
with shoplifting from the Dollar
General store in Macclenny Au-
Deputy Ruise was called
to that scene and told that two
women inside the store had been
.Shoplifting. One of them was
able to produce a receipt for the
items she had.
SBut Ms. Oralls could only
say that items found in her purse
were in her possession before
she entered the store. Eventual-
ly, the officer said, she admitted
to the crime.
The deputy also found sev-
eral items in the trunk of a car
belonging to another woman,
Kyra Oralls, who had given Se-
brina a ride.
A criminal complaint was

that Ms. Gombert's mailbox
was broken and a wooden sign
with obscene language had been
placed in the yard. Also, several.
pieces of foam rubber from a
beanbag had been strewn around
the lawn, as had several bags of
When Deputy Burnsed spoke
with the two girls, they allegedly
admitted to the vandalism, say-
ing revenge for past wrongs was
their motive. The officer said
charges would be filed through
the state attorney's office.
Macclenny resident Mason
Bryant told police August 1 that
the back window of his truck
had been shattered. The truck

kindness and felt peace;

Mom, your look was like an
I saw long-suffering on your
gentle face and knew behind
those wonderful eyes was a
saintly mortal who was my
mother, a woman who learned
from pain and joy how to love.
If you could hug me in your
protective arms the way you
once held me back then,
If I could see that loving gentle
face that told me I would for-
ever have a friend.
What sublime joy and wonder it
would be to know
God's blessings through you of
And a miracle from God above
to hear you say, "I love you ".
You've done your deed in this
place and now its' time for your
While your love and devotion
can't be replaced...rest assured
we'll do our best
As you taught us over the years
we'll have your memories and
love live on in our hearts... we

If all the renewed interest in
baseball has got you hankering
to see a live game, you couldn't
do better than the Jacksonville
Suns. Having won the first half
of the Southern League's South
Division in a walkaway, the Suns
have just kept running on all cyl-
inders in the second half.
They come into this week's
home stand against the Carolina
Mudcats sporting a two game
lead over Montgomery. The Suns
have stumbled a little the past two
weeks, going into a road series
up five games. They'll be happy
to return to the Baseball Grounds
for the three-game home stand.
The Suns have been on top
most of the season, but the Mud-
cats have been struggling. They
are mired in the bottom half of
the North Division, five'games
off the pace set by Huntsville.
They would like nothing more
than to gain some ground, but
the Baseball Grounds is one of
the hardest places in the league
to pull that off.
There are some interesting
promotions to go along with the
game. On Wednesday there is a
flip-flop giveaway emblazoned
with the Suns logo. The next
night is Thursday Night Throw-
down, with beer for a buck.
Friday is Used Car Night and
some lucky fan will win a used
car from the Suns. On Saturday
there is a fun giveaway. The first
3000 fans will receive a pen and
pencil holder designed like No-
lan Ryan's 1967 Suns jersey.
Sunday, the last day of the home
stand, features one of the most
enjoyable promotions. It's Dog
Days of Summer. Bring your dog
to the park and get a Southpaw
mascot piggy bank.
Wednesday through Satur-
day's games start at 7:05 pm.
Sunday's first pitch is at 5:05
