Cityurged


to increase


garbage fee

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Residents in the City of
Macclenny could pay 40 per-
cent more for garbage pick up,
and businesses 18 to 30 percent
more, if city commissioners
approve a rate increase rec-
ommended by City Engineer
Frank Dirabi to end the munic-
ipality's current subsidy of the
service from the general fund.
Ideally, Mr. Darabi said gar-
bage collection rates should be
high enough to cover the city's
cost to fund the service today
and generate reserves for new
equipment like another gar-
bage truck in the future.
But at the current rates, City
Manager Gerald Dopson has
said he expects Macclenny's
solid waste program to lose
about $50,000 this year, and
that's why he asked Mr. Darabi
to do the rate study, the results
of which were presented to the
commission April 15 during a
workshop at city hall attended
only by city staff.
While the proposed rate
increase is by no means final-
ized, Mr. Darabi said, "At this
point, solid waste isn't paying
for itself."
The engineer presented
three options during the work-
shop:
A one-time increase.
An increase phased in over
two years.
An increase phased in over
two years that includes the cost
of providing all curb-side cus-
tomers with uniform, 95-gal-
lon rolling containers.
Mr. Darabi recommended
the second option, which would
increase monthly residential
rates from $12.32 to $15.32
in 2008, then go to $17.32 in
2009, for a total increase of $5
per month.
Although commercial rates
vary depending on the size of
the dumpster and the frequen-
cy of collection, under the sec-
ond option, businesses with the
smallest dumpsters and twice-
weekly collection would see an
increase from $43.11 to $48.28
in 2008, and then to $51.18 in
2009, a total hike of roughly $8
per moth.
Mr. Darabi said with the in-
crease, the city's rates would
be comparable to others in the
region, but that there is also a
trend towards privatizing gar-
bage collection.
Commissioner Floyd Ben-
nett said he agreed with Mr.
Darabi's recommendation.
"I want us to be living with-
in our means and not using the
general fund," he said. "We
can't keep subsidizing this op-
eration."
Mr. Darabi also said signifi-
cant savings could be made by

Lieutenant governor tours DuPont mining operation...
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp toured the DuPont mining operation that stretches through Baker, Bradford, Clay and Duval counties April 14. The mining operation began more than
50 years ago and is responsiblefor 225jobs in Florida and an economic impact of $50 million annually, according to wwwflorida.dupont.com, the plant's recently launched
public information web site. "Economic development is a very important part of the governor's agenda," Mr. Kottkamp said before receiving a presentation from plant man-
agers (at center and right are Phil Pombier and David Wright) while the floating dredge worked behind them. DuPont mines the minerals titanium, zircon and staurolite from
the sands under the top soil, which are replaced within minutes after the minerals are extracted through a chemical-free process using gravity separation spirals. "That's a
pretty quick turn around," said the lieutenant governor, who toured the current location in southeast Baker County following a visit to Camp Blanding in Jacksonville. His
next stop was Tallahassee. PHOTO BY JOE ADDINGTON


Public records at the click ofa mouse...

County s onlinepublic record access balloons since 1995
BY JOEL ADDINGTON property appraiser's page at about 7,200 hits each month and the tax
Press Staff collector's page, for which Mr. Frilling said hits are not counted.


Ever wanted to know who owns that dilapidated property down
the street? Or whether the man dating your daughter is a three-time
divorcee? Maybe you're curious to know if a
public official has gotten any traffic tickets or
worse; or who is donating money to the Baker ".- -
County sheriff candidates' campaigns. ,
These and many other public records on ",., ,
people and places in Baker County can be .i
found online through searches of govern-
ment databases. Typically, all you need is a
person's name or an address to get all sorts j
of information.
Most of the records for Baker County
can be accessed through links on the coun-
ty's home page, http://www.bakercountyfl. .
org, which is maintained by Nick Frilling
of information services.
"It's been a great tool for Baker Coun- ,,,
ty," he said, adding that the first govern-
ment office to go online was the elections
supervisor in 1995. It was soon joined by
the county commission, clerk of court
and the sheriff's office.
"From there we just kept growing
it and coming up with new ideas," he
said.
Mr. Frilling has also received a i:
good amount of positive feedback .
from the public on the site. .b
"People will call and say they're *.. ,
searching for such and such and we
point them in the right direction," he
said. -"
The most popular online records '
site is the clerk of court's page with
roughly 40,000 hits per month, followed by the


\ ut he said, I would assume they're getting at least as many as
the property appraiser."
The clerk of court's database is the largest online records re-
source in Baker County and is accessed from http://bakercountyfl.
org/clerk.


There you will find two links, one
labeled "Search Baker's public re-
cords" and another "Search Baker's
court dockets."
The public records can be searched
E by name and include documents like
agreements and contracts, bonds,
deeds, mortgages, liens, death certifi-
cates and marriage licenses.
Court dockets can be searched by
s name, case number or citation number
in the areas of civil, criminal; probate
and traffic cases.
Both sets of court records go back to
the mid-1980s, said Mr. Frilling.
Another abundant source of informa-
tion is the property appraiser's web site
at http://www.bakerpa.com. By clicking
"record search" on the left hand side of the
page, you can find out who owns a prop-
erty, its address, size, and value; as well as
information about structures built on the
property.
Before the records became available on-
line, Mr. Frilling said there was a constant
stream of fee appraisers coming into the
property appraiser's office.
"Since we put it up, we may get one a
W week," he said. "They sit at home and work on
this 24 hours a day. That frees up our people to
do what they're supposed to be doing, helping

chosen for


long-term


NIHstudy

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Natalie Freeman came to
Florida for a challenge and
she's certainly going to get it.
She's a doctor with the Uni-
versity of Florida's environ-
mental and human toxicology
college and working on a Na-
tional Institute of Health (NIH)
study that will examine how the
environments children grow up
in affect their health and devel-
opment into adulthood.
The National Childrens
Study will take into account
natural and man-made environ-
mental
factors,
biology,
genetics,




socations.al
factors,
behav-
ioral in-
fluenbes,
cultural
influenc-
es and
g e o Dr.Freeman
graphic
locations.
It will include more than
100,000 children nationwide
including 600 from Baker
County .- and follow their
development from birth to 21
years of age.
Dr. Freeman came from
New Jersey four years ago to
take part in the study, but that's
something she could've done
much easier had she stayed up
north.
Work has already begun
there to start enrolling pregnant
mothers this summer, while
the Baker County study hasn't
even received grant funding yet
from the federal government.
In fact, the research team -
UF, UNF and the University of
South Florida in Tampa ap-
plied for the grant last year too,
and were turned down.
"I thought it'd be a reaf chal-
lenge," Dr. Freeman said of
the local study, adding there's
probably a 50 percent chance
of getting funded this year.
The grant application is due
May 1 and Dr. Freeman said
she's hopeful changes made
to improve last year's applica-
tion will put the Baker County
study in a better position for
funding.
"Last year I was going to
be the principal investigator,
the lead on the project," she
explained. This year pediatric
physician Dr. Mark Hudak is
listed as the lead.
"It was a conscious deci-
sion," said Dr. Freeman. "They
wanted to see a physician with
NIH grants, a physician scien-
tist, which is what he is. My
funding history was primarily
through the EPA. He is an ex-
cellent physician and neonatal
scientist."
Also, Dr. Hudak's experi-
ence with pregnant mothers
and infants be will be more
helpful in the first few years of
the Baker County study than
Dr. Freeman's background
with mostly two- and three-
year-olds.
"One of my strengths is
working in rural communi-
ties," said Dr. Freeman. "That

IMPRESSIONS
JIM McGAULEY

The fact that the story ap-
peared on page 8 of last week's
edition pretty well speaks for it-
self.
I'm referring to Joel Adding-
ton's article on the upcoming
primary election here in Baker
County, what we used to call the
"four-year election" when con-
stitutional officers have to run.
Those were the exciting elec-
tions compared to the "off-year"
contests that could, from time to
time, produce a bell-ringer of a
contest. Just not as often.
As the article noted, there's
not much going on out there.
Unless events change al-
ways a possibility in politics it
looks like most incumbents will
get by in 2008. If any of the pres-
ent officer holders aren't think-
ing about another term, they've
kept it secret.
Why the lack of interest? Let's
look at it.
First the sheriff. In years past,
a good sheriff race was a cata-
lyst for an entire political season.
People running for other offices
got sucked into the whirlpool
whether they wanted to or not. If
one wasn't aligned with this side
or that, one soon found oneself
aligned whether it was true or
not.
SWe'll likely have a sheriff
race this year, but barring again
the unforeseen, it's not going to
be that kind of a race. The two
challengers so far to a fourth-
term of Sheriff Dobson are, well,
way out there.
Bryan McDuffie, a former
county deputy under Mr. Dob-
son's predecessor, is telling lots
of people he'll be in the race
also. If he does, he's more like-
ly to bring out a few issues that
are, ahem, more substantive than
what we've heard so far from the
others.
Mr. McDuffie probably knows
he'll have a tough time knock-
ing off the incumbent who has
amassed a strong performance
record and perfected to an art
form the masterful balancing act
of politics on one end and law
enforcement on the other. He
may just run to get his name out
there for the next time since the
incumbent seems inclined to re-
tire in four years.
It's a near-certainty that
school superintendent Ms. Bar-
ton will get by without opposi-
tion again. She has earned high
marks for doing a difficult job
with a mix of management skills
attuned to the bureaucracy that
has overtaken public education
and a penchant for heading off
controversy before it gets on the
public's radar.
In the other constitutional of-
ficer positions (court clerk, elec-
tions supervisor, property ap-
praiser, tax collector), don't look
for a rush of challengers unless
one of them surprises us and
retires. Policy making is hardly
something to take a shot at -
their duties and responsibilities
are dictated.by statute. The only


issues a challenger could suc-
cessfully mount, other than an
incumbent's complete incompe-
tence, would deal with character
or scandalous behavior.
If that exists, the offending in-
cumbent has done a sterling job
keeping it quiet.
Ditto school board members.
Their policy making powers are
so severely restricted by the state
that one wonders why we still
have school boards (if the De-
partment of Education had its
way, we wouldn't). So if a board
member avoids making a fool
of him or herself on some local
issue and keeps a clean nose in
his or her private life, the job is a
self-fulfilling ticket to re-election
without opposition.
For county commissioners, it's
a different story. They're still on
the firing line with growth woes
and other issues that require con-
stant attention to the job. There's
at least one board seat that will be
challenged, that of Julie Combs
in Sanderson. The other two run-
ning this year? Nothing yet.
My theory? It's precisely be-
cause the county board is more
challenging that fewer seek of-
fice than in past decades. It's
scared off a lot of potential can-
didates.
Back in the old days, a sub-
stantial family connection might
convince a candidate to run. The
job didn't require all that much
moxie back then, and some-
one with reasonable political or
rhetorical skills stood a decent
chance. If he (or on rare cases
she) managed to avoid offending
large blocks of voters, he could
stay in the job for years.
And then there's the (disturb-
ing) possibility that people just
don't care who their local elect-
ed officials are. Voting trends by
younger people, here and else-
where, seem to reflect a declining
interest in things governmental.
It's possible to graduate from
Baker County High School with
decent grades but pitifully little
knowledge of civics and Ameri-
can history. Families don't sit
around dinner tables and talk
politics anymore; many of them
don't sit around dinner tables at
all. The "personal touch" that
made small-county politics inter-
esting has faded, and in its place
are concerns about day-to-day
living.
The exception, of course, is
when issues get very personal,
like last year when neighbors
turned out en masse to protest
the siting of a new jail north of
Macclenny, or to protest a camp-
ground near the Boy Scout Camp
on the St. Marys. The downside
is most of the remainder of the
county couldn't be bothered.
Whatever the reason, all signs
point to a rather calm "four-year
election." The issues that used
to bring out candidates, at least
for now, don't seem to be there.
It's expensive to run for anything
county wide and it requires a tre-
mendous investment of time and
effort.
Maybe that will change. May-
be.


Unkind remark to sister about


church attendance 'un-Christian


Dear Editor:
I was upset recently by something my mother
told me happened to my little sister this week at
school. I couldn't stop thinking about it, as I am a
mother of two young children myself.
Short of picking up the phone and making a
scene, I thought this a better way to get my point
across.
My little sister came home from school and was
upset because her friend told her, "My parents said
your not a good friend because you don't go to
church."
She is very fond of this friend, so you can see
why it upset her. One of the reasons I have not been
to church in a long time is because of hypocrites
like these people. I can't believe that some people
actually think this way!
The comment was not very "Christian-like." I
think maybe they need a refresher course in the
Bible they supposedly live by.
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what
judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with
what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you
again." Matthew 7:1-3.


Just because I don't go to church, that doesn't
mean that I or my family do not have religious be-
liefs or are not good people. As far as I'm con-
cerned, my God is a loving God, and we are to
share His Word with those who will listen but not
"throw pearls to swine" by trying to intimidate
those who will not listen.
God gave us choice when He gave us freewill.
He accepts our choice to believe Him or not and
we as Christians should accept others choices.
In such a church-filled county, with so many
Christian followers, I'm sure I'm not the only per-
son to have come across such hypocritical behav-
ior. I just hope that someone reading this will think
about their comments to impressionable children
(who may repeat things that shouldn't be repeated)
and think better of it.
Better yet, maybe they will teach their children
that not all people practice the same family rituals,
but that doesn't make them bad friends. Friendship
entails accepting someone for who they are and
loving them in spite of their differences and flaws.

Apocalypse signs: Hillarys shotgun,


BoSoxjersey at new Yankee Stadium


Oh, oh! Signs of the apoca-
lypse are looming before us.
I just checked up on some of
the weirder news stories and I'm
always baffled by the things I
read in newspapers or online.
American Air-
lines grounded its M
entire fleet of MD-
80 aircraft. Why T

to Detroit?
Well ... it matters to me.
How come it matters to you,
you might ask?
Because it solidifies what I
have always believed, that if man
was meant to fly, God would have
issued him air sickness bags and
party peanuts.
As loyal readers of this col-
umn know, I hate to fly and it
shows.
I'm happy to see all those
aircraft on the ground and be-
ing checked with a fine-toothed
wrench. It will make me feel
more confident the next time I
have to down a tranquilizer and
strap into several tons of hurtling
steel.

candidate for president has been
courting blue collar workers in
Pennsylvania. She has been call-
ing her opponent, Sen. Barack
Obama an elitist, snob and paint-
ing herself as the friend of the
-------------working man.
DE OF The sena-
SO t for from New
York claims
ATTER kv she often went
hunting with
GERARD her father
when she was
growing up in Illinois.
I think that's a little shady.
Not that I doubt the senator's ve-
racity, but personally, if she had
known how to use a shotgun I'm
convinced that we'd have known
about it by now.
After her husband's little in-
cident with Monica Lewinsky, I
am fully certain that a wife with
a pump Remington would have
emptied a couple of barrels of
buckshot where the sun don't
shine.
In fact, if she had, she'd prob-
ably stand a better chance of get-
ting elected. Blue collar Pennsyl-
vanians would have understood
that.
Of course, in the battle of the
politician marksmen, I don't
know who I'd be more afraid of,
Hillary or Vice President Dick
Cheney. I wouldn't want to be
the third guy on that duck hunt-
ing trip.
V In a similar story, the US
Army suspended artillery prac-
tice at its testing site in New
Jersey after a wayward artillery
rouid landed in a house and
killed a pet cat.
I'd probably suspend artillery
practice too. If some soldier can't
tell the difference between a tank


and a tabby, we need to worry.
TheArmy was understandably
red-faced about the incident and
apologized. The soldier respon-
sible has probably already got his
shipping out orders for Kandahar
Province, Afghanistan.
V In the "Just Keep Your
Mouth Shut Dummy" category,
how about the fellow from Bos-
ton who buried a David Ortiz
Boston Red Sox jersey in the
concrete of the new Yankee Sta-
dium being built in New York
City?
The construction worker, a
rabid Sox fan, hoped the Bos-
ton slugger's jersey would act
as a curse on the new facility in
much the same way that the sell-
ing of Babe Ruth from the Sox to
the Yankees supposedly kept the
Red Sox from a World Series for
64 years.
It was a great prank, but the
guy couldn't keep his mouth shut
about it. He bragged to friends
and wrote about it on the Inter-
net.
The Yankees, to whom the
curse of the Bambino was a real
deal, took this seriously as well.
They took a jackhammer to the
concrete and sure enough, there
was Ortiz's #38 jersey.
For Boston fans, it was just
another case of their old enemy
thwarting them yet again.

that.
Earlier, Ms. Ray had "double

so the children would have no
trouble digging the holes. She
helped them select a spot to line

Jessie Collett had a different
approach. He was very methodi-

reducing trash pick-up from two
days per week to once per week
for the city's nearly 2000 resi-
dential customers, and requiring
customers to use the large, 95-
gallon containers.
SIf the containers are used, the
city's workers' compensation in-
surance rates would decrease be-
cause the containers are compat-
ible with a mechanical arm that
could be installed on the city's
truck to empty the cans without
the use of manpower.
The city's truck currently
uses three workers, one driver
and two in the rear to dump gar-
bage cans. With the new con-
tainers and truck modifications,
the cost of labor could be cut by
two-thirds for curb-side service.
"Nobody is picking up any-
thing," Mr. Darabi said of such
an operation.
Furthermore, cutting residen-
tial pick-ups to once a week also
translates to less money for gas
and payroll time, Mr. Darabi
said, two of the largest expenses


in garbage collection.
However, the city manager
and some city commissioners
expressed hesitation to a once-
a-week schedule, fearing trash
could pile up for households that
produce large amounts of gar-
bage. In those cases, Mr. Darabi
said customers could be issued
more than one container.
"My wife brings in eight bags
of groceries and I take out. 15
bags of trash,'i' said Commis-
sioner Phil Rhoden, adding he
would like to gauge feedback
from the public before support-
ing a once-a-week schedule.
Adjusting to a new schedule
could also take some getting
used to. "We've had two days a
week for years and years," Mr.
Dopson said.
And while commissioners
didn't express much support for
once-a-week collection, nobody
spoke against the proposed rate
increase, either.
Mr. Darabi said he'd work out
a formal plan for the increase
to bring back to commissioners
next month.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, April 17, 2008 Page 6


Property owner up again to code board for


improper storage ofvehicles, other violations


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
About three years ago, Robbie Kirkland
said he paid Baker County roughly $1800 in
code enforcement fines for storing inoper-
able or unregistered vehicles at his father's
property off Bobby Ray Ln. in Macclenny,
in an open field.
Robbie Kirkland was back in front of the
county code enforcement board April 14 for
the same violation this time for storing
close to 20 vehicles on the property in ad-
dition to violations for junk and mobile home
skirting.
Robbie Kirkland was representing his fa-
ther, Bobby Ray Kirkland, who he said was
ill and couldn't attend the hearing as he did
three years ago withbhis son.
Code enforcement officer Phil Thomas
said he received two complaints in January
about the vehicles, other junk on the lot in-
cluding a semi trailer being used for storage
and a partially demolished mobile home, and
the lack of skirting on another mobile home.
In February, a letter was mailed to the fa-
ther notifying him of the violations.
A month later, Mr. Thomas said he ob-
served "no significant improvement" of the
property.
Robbie Kirkland told code board mem-
bers he was in the process of installing skirt-
ing on the mobile home and may be able to
correct that violation within a month or two.
The vehicles, however, would be harder.
The younger Kirkland runs a vehicle re-
pair business in downtown Macclenny and
said many of the vehicles on his father's
property belong to customers that haven't
paid their bill. He added that he's attempting
to gain title to these vehicles, which he needs
before he can legally dispose of them.


Although not included in this month's case
against Bobby Ray Kirkland, another viola-
tion could stem from the residentially zoned
property being used for business purposes.
"I think you have a problem there, too,"
said board chair and The Baker County
Press publisher Jim McGauley. "If you have
a business, you need to keep your business
where your business is."
The board voted unanimously to find the
property in violation but withheld judgement
on any penalty fines, save an $85 administra-
tion fee.
The penalty portion of the case was de-
ferred to allow staff time to verify Bobby
Ray Kirkland's previous violation three years
ago, which will likely lead to heftier fines if a
repeat violation can be shown.
In another case, John and Melissa Mal-
loy's property at 20447 Ftank Combs Circle
was cited for having two mobile homes on a
property only permitted for one such dwell-
ing.
Mr. Thomas said a complaint was filed
January 8 and the Malloys were notified they
had 30 days to remove the excess home.
"It appears they started removing some
of the inside of the mobile home and they
did obtain a demolition permit February
28," Mr. Thomas told the board. "But I'd say
about 35 percent of it has been demolished
as of today."
Ms. Malloy appeared before the board and
said the delay in removing the excess home
was due to illnesses and a death in the fam-
ily. She added her brother and father have
been working to demolish the home because
she and her husband work most of the week.
When asked how long it would take to
correct the violation, Ms. Malloy responded,
"I can't honestly answer. Less than a month,
I can tell you that."


After finding the Malloys in violation
board member Waldo Brock's motion to gi,


n,
ye


the couple 30 days to come into compliance
or face a $50 fine plus $15 per day for up
to 180 days passed unanimously. The motion
also included levying an $85 administration
fee.
Also, Mr. Thomas said he found Hugh
Bentley Rhoden's property at 11366 Deer-
wood Rd. in Macclenny in compliance after
it was cited for vehicle and junk violations in
January.
Under old business:
The property owned by Brent and Lisa
Whitney at 9324 Brent Ln. was found in com-
pliance after being cited for vehicle, junk,
zoning and livestock violations in January.
Mr. Thomas said he would be contacting
the couple concerning the $85 administra-
tion fee that hasn't been paid. If the fee goes
unpaid, a lien could be recorded on the prop-
erty.
Mary Wynne's property at 4831 Jeff
Starling Rd. was also found in compliance
after being cited for vehicle, junk and rec-
reational vehicle violations in January. She
also hasn't paid the administration fee and
will be contacted by Mr. Thomas.
Mr. Thomas said he would be recording
a lien on Adam and Mary Geiger's property
at 10582 Indian Trail in Sanderson for un-
paid fines in excess of $400 as of April 14.
The fines are the result of vehicle and debris
violations.
The board voted 3-2 to waive the $85
administration fee in Derek Stepping's case,
with Mr. McGauley and board member Dan-
ny Burger dissenting.
Mr. Stepping's property at 6460 Keith
Griffis Circle is now in compliance after be-
ing cited for vehicle, junk and horse viola-
tions.

Maclenny man is arrested for


fringe Distol from vehicle in Glen


One suspect is in custody and
a second man is sought follow-
ing an alleged shooting incident
on US 90 in west Glen St. Mary
the afternoon of April 13.
Telv Coleman, 19, of Mac-
clenny was arrested later that
day and booked for aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon af-
ter his 2001 Chevrolet sedan was
stopped on Five Churches Rd. in
Sanderson. He was identified
by victim Quintin Paige, also
19 and from Macclenny, as the
person who waved a pistol from
the passenger side window of a
purple-colored Dodge Magnum
and fired one shot.
The bullet apparently missed
the 1991 Toyota sedan being
driven by Mr. Paige.
The Dodge was allegedly
driven by Antwan Givens, 21,
of Jacksonville, who fled north
on CR 127 after the Dodge was
identified and chased by Deputy
Ha4old Ta\l or. who spotted it on
US 90 just east of the railroad
viaduct shortly after the report
of the shooting about noon.
Deputy Taylor's report indi-
cated the Dodge was spotted
heading north by a witness on
CR 127, but was not located dur-
ing the ensuing investigation. A
warrant was issued for Mr. Giv-
ens.
Mr. Paige said the two al-
leged assailants got in front of
his vehicle at the US 90 stop-
light at Wildcat Dr., then as the
two vehicles continued west just
outside of Glen, Mr..Coleman
fired the single shot back at his
vehicle.

Corrections noted
Robert Foster, the victim/
complainant in a grand theft auto
case reported in last week's edi-
tion of The Baker County Press,
was misidentified as the sus-
pect in one reference. The story
should've stated that the state
attorneys office could decide to
file charges against Christopher
Barton, the suspect, not Mr. Fos-
ter, as was reported.
Another error appeared in a
story about the proposed Cedar
Creek development project. The
county commission's consider-
ation of the project is scheduled
for May 24, not in June as re-
ported.


Lt. Gerald Gonzalez, the
sheriff's department chief of
operations, said police are look-
ing into a report that the shoot-
ing stemmed from an incident
in Baldwin the previous night. It
might also be a continuation of
a territorial feud between young
black males from Sanderson and
Macclenny.
In other cases involving per-
sonal crimes, Quartesia Wash-
ington, 24, of Lake City was
arrested the evening of April 12
and booked for battery and tres-
pass at a north Macclenny resi-
dence.
She is accused of barging her
way into a residence off North
Boulevard about 7:15 and at-
tacking Tammy Barton, 19, in
her bedroom. The victim was
struck repeatedly about the left
face, and her boyfriend Blake
Lee, 23, of the same address,
told Deputy Claude Hurley he
had to pull Ms. Washington off
his girlfriend three times.
The suspect fled the resi-
dence and was stopped by Cpl.
Bill Starling on US 90 after a
description of her vehicle was
broadcast over the police radio.
Ms. Washington is also want-
ed in Columbia County for vio-
lation of probation on an earlier
DUI.
Jeannie Hart, 40, of Mac-
clenny was booked for battery
the evening of April 11 after she
slammed a car door on the leg of
another woman in the presence
of a county deputy.
Deputy William Hilliard was
called to the residence of Donna
Crawford, 44, off CR 127 about
8:30 because Ms. Hart was al-


legedly taking property. Ms.
Hart denied the accusation, then
went to a nearby vehicle after
Ms. Crawford got into the pas-
senger seat.
She then began yelling at her
and slammed the door. Deputy
Hilliard said he had to forcibly
subdue Ms. Hart before placing
her in his patrol car.
Jeffery Burnsed, 26, of Glen
St. Mary was arrested for bat-
tery after a late night incident
April 7 off Shumate Lane near
Sanderson.
He is accused of entering the
residence of Jeremy Brown, 19,
and kicking him before the two
fought outside the residence. Mr.
Burnsed denied entering the res-
idence and breaking a window
by throwing Mr. Brown's cell-
phone at it.
He is charged with battery for
striking Mr. Brown on the arm
with a baseball bat, and criminal
mischief for breaking the glass.
He told Deputy Harold Taylor he
went to the residence to retrieve
a mattress.

through the rear glass of her
parked 2000 Dodge van during

and sped off following the sound
of breaking glass.

Library gets 'playaway' talking books

A $150 gift from the Baker
County Rotary Club and a por-
tion of a $2000 Community Li- l

has enabled The Emily Taber
Library to purchase a collection
of new recorded books. "
The "books" are known as
PlayAways, and are digitally

young readers. Because the -o y i
PlayAways are expensive, about 4
$60 dollars each, the library has .
only purchased 15 titles to start

road closing and abandonment
petition from William and Jane
Williams for a 21,600-square-

in Sanderson south of US 90 and
north of Columbia Street.
The request was made to ac-
commodate redevelopment of
commercial lots on either side
of the county right-of-way in
accordance with county land

would've been difficult given

Cancer victim attributes survival to fait...
Macclenny resident Kitty Waddell spoke about her experience with cancer during Relay For Life, held April 5 at the Ag Center,
saying her faith helped her recover from the disease. Glenda Scallan also presented the Macclenny Women's Club with plaque of
appreciation for raising over $9,000 for the event. The Relay for Life is an annual event held by the American Cancer Society as a
findraiser for cancer research. The Relay included entertainment, a yard sale and survivors dinner, which fed 175 survivors and
their caretakers. Seventeen Relay teams raised at least $30,000 for cancer research this year. Three plaques were also presented
during the event: DuPont was honored as the corporate sponsor, the Women's Club as the civic sponsor and local hairdressers
received the business sponsor plaque.

New River board cancels pact


with a lawn, litter clean-up firm


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
The New River Solid Waste
Association's board of directors
voted unanimously to terminate
its lawn maintenance and lit-
ter clean-up contract with the
Macclenny-based company The
Greener Side April 10 for what
New River landfill's executive
director Darrell O'Neal called
"inconsistent mowing."
The Greener Side's eight-year
contract was due to expire in
September and the landfill will
be re-advertising to replace the
company.
The Greener Side was charged
with lawn care on about four-
and-a-half acres of the landfill
property as well as picking up
litter from trucks hauling gar-
bage to the facility. Once a week
the company was contracted to
remove litter on a roughly two-
mile stretch of SR 121 from CR
229 to SR 16.
"It's money well spent for
good PR [public relations] with
the community," Mr. O'Neal
said. The Greener Side's ser-
vices cost the landfill just over
$1000 per month.
The director also requested
that the board allow him to work
more hours to begin preparing
the landfill's budget for the end
of this fiscal year, September
30.
He said he had been working
32 hours a week and taking Fri-
days off to assist his wife with
their rental property.
Replacement of fencing at the
landfill with a more aesthetical-
ly pleasing, and more expensive
type of fencing, was postponed
in light of budget preparations.
The board also tabled a pro-
posal to increase the deductible
for the landfill's property and
general liability insurance to
lower premiums. Extra time is
needed to allow landfill insur-
ance agent, C. Scott Roberts of
Roberts Insurance of Starke, to
meet further with landfill staff
On savings options.


The proposed deductible in-
crease from $1000 to $50,000
on property could result in
$1081 in savings while other siz-
able increases in the deductible
for equipment and general liabil-
ity would save $8762 and $7047
respectively.
Tipping fees were also waived
by the board for about 22 tons of
debris left after a tornado de-
stroyed much of a Taylor couple's
home and barn in early March.
In addition, Mr. O'Neal pre-
sented former landfill engineer
Frank Darabi with a plaque in
appreciation of his 20 years of


service at the facility and an-
nounced that New River would
host visitors from an internation-
al leadership program May 6.
The visitors will be represent-
ing a host of foreign nations in-
cluding Australia, Brazil, Cam-
bodia, India and Pakistan.
"It's another feather in our
cap," said Mr. O'Neal, not-
ing that the landfill's success is
what's prompting the interna-
tional delegation's visit.

Dear Citizens,

Serving as your sheriff for the past twelve years
has been a tremendous honor. The trust you have
placed in me has been taken seriously, because
this is serious work. It has also been important
that I be accessible to the public, involved in the
community, and there for people when they need
me. I believe service to the community helps pre-
serve the small town atmosphere we all love.

However, we live in an age where tragic events can strike us at any time.
It is critical that our sheriff's office maintains a level of law enforcement
expertise, in which we can be confident. This requires setting standards for
and leading a well-trained law enforcement staff To do this effectively, a
sheriff must also have advanced professional training with solid, sub-
stantiallaw enforcement career experience.

I am proud of the law enforcement, corrections, and administrative staff
we have developed over the past twelve years at the Baker County Sheriff's
Office. Our efforts, in partnership with the community, have reduced
the crime rate, established us among the top in the state in solving
crimes, and placed Baker County in a positive light.

We are continuously working to provide the quality protection and ser-
vice our county deserves: In addition, we are being proactive in seeking
ways to address both our current and future law enforcement needs, on
behalf of the citizens we serve, without placing extra burdens on the tax-
payers.

So, I am asking for the opportunity to continue as your sheriff by an-
nouncing my candidacy in the upcoming election. I look forward to con-
tinuing our work in progress, as we approach and prepare for the future of
Baker County, together.

Sincerely,
SheriffJoey B. Dobson

Experienced, Professional, Proven, Leadership...is the difference!

Using her

art talent to

bringMabel

to children
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Illustrating a children's book
is the latest accomplishment of
talented Callahan artist Karen
Clifton.
An accomplished mural paint-
er, Ms. Clifton has, in her own
words, "splashed, and dripped
her mark" across northeast Flor-
ida in numerous homes, day care
centers, churches, schools and
businesses.
This busy artist has recently
lent her talents to pictures for
Mable Is Able, the first in a se-
ries of children's books written
by Beth Evans Caldwell, a librar-
ian who lives and works in Black
Mountain, North Carolina.
"Beth Caldwell is my hus-
band's aunt. When she ap-
proached me about the project
I was glad for the opportunity,"
said Ms. Clifton. "She had al-
ways wanted to write a children's
book and I had always wanted to
illustrate one."
The Mable character is an
orangutan who doesn't take ad-
vantage of opportunities to learn
new things because she doesn't
believe she can. The story fo-
cuses on how she learns to over-
come this obstacle and discovers
that she is very able to learn af-
ter all. The book employs rhyme
with key words printed in red to
help enforce its message.
The simple, bright drawings
are rendered in Prismacolor pen-
cil and black marker and lend
themselves well to the book's
concept.
Mable Is Able has been pub-
lished by Tate Publishing. Ac-
cording to Ms. Clifton, the book
will be available in a download-
able audio file format from the
company's website. This appeals
to teachers who are download-
ing more and'more edicatlon re-


Karen Clifton shows off an image from the children's book she illustrated.

sources on iPod. Coloring book
pages can also be printed from
the web site.
Although not a story with a
specific Christian message, the
book received an endorsement
from Josh McDowell, an award-
winning Christian author and
illustrator with 51 books to his
credit.
Artistic talent runs in Ms.
Clifton's family. Her mother,
Carol Baker of Macclenny, is
well-known in Baker County for
her water colors and also pro-
duced murals at one time.
Although she wanted to major
in art, Ms. Clifton saw that art
was disappearing from the pub-
lic school curriculums, so she
majored in education instead.
"I made money during college
by drawing caricatures of people
at fairs and festivals," she said.
She taught at Keller Interme-


diate and worked with a juvenile
justice program in Jacksonville.
She implemented art when she
could. Now a full-time mom,
Ms. Cliftofi is encouraging the
efforts of her own five-year-
old daughter Jessie, who often
accompanies her while she is
working on a mural.
"My grandfather was an art-
ist. Mom is an artist and so am
I. Jessie has already decided she
is going to be an artist, too," said
Ms. Clifton. "I'm encouraging
her the same way my mom en-
couraged me."
Ms. Clifton is anxious to get
started on the second book in
the Mable series, which will fo-
cus on a Kangaroo named Jack.
"Jack has anger management
issues. Mable will be there to
help him figure out how to deal
with those," said Ms. Clifton.

Part 1 Understanding the Weight Loss Process
Weight loss occurs from burning more calories than you take in. For
example, if we use an individual who needs 1500 calories a day to
maintain his or her body weight, and this person desires to lose one
pound a week (a pound equals 3500 calories), the person would need
to create a calorie deficit of 500 calories each day of the week.
In other words, they would need to either reduce the number of calo-
ries taken in, or use exercise to burn an extra 500
calories per day to create a negative balance in
order to lose weight.
Let's take a closer look at these two options.
If this person decides to reduce intake by 500 "
calories a day, he or she would need to eat only
1000 calories a day. This is less than many meals --
at your favorite restaurants.
The other option is to try to burn an extra 500
calories through exercise each day. If you choose
to walk, it would take you nearly two hours at
3.5mph (for an individual weighing about 150 JessRis
pounds) to burn this many calories.
Most clients I work with do not have near that amount of time to
apply towards exercise each day. With this in mind, a more practical
approach is to create a caloric deficit by using both calorie reduction
and exercise. Using this approach, this same individual could choose to
reduce intake by 250 calories a day, and would only need to burn 250
calories through exercise.
My advice for those trying to manage their weight is to incorporate
a system that includes both exercise and proper nutrition. However, al-
ways consult with your physician before making any alterations to your
daily calorie intake or beginning an exercise program.
In the next column, we will discuss the benefits of cardiovascular
exercise and strength exercise, and how you can best incorporate them
to achieve the figure you desire.
The information provided in this article is intended for informational
purposes only and is not intended as a prescription for exercise.

Keller KADETS advised ofdangers inherent using the Internet..
Internet safety was the subject on April 10 during a programfor the KADET students at Keller Intermediate conducted by Deputy
Jeff Dawson of the Baker County Sheriff's Office. He and campus deputy Nicki Mizell spoke to the students on recognizing dan-
gers inherent with using the Internet. Most parents are unaware that home computers come with internal controls parents can use
to restrict certain websites and even control the amount of time a child spends on the Internet. Several students raised their hands
when asked if they had MySpace, Facebook or e-mail accounts their parents were unaware of. The deputies stressed that both
parents and children need to be aware of the dangers and dangerous people lurking around in cyberspace. Parents with questions
should get in touch with Deputy Dawson at 259-2231. Photo courtesy of Deputy Nicki Mizell
