Press Staff.
A puzzled Baker County
Commission was left won-
dering this week where all
the votes went in support of a
special tax district to pave a
private road in the Macclenny
South subdivision off SR 121S.
When a 5:00 pm deadline
rolled around on June 16, only
17 of 33 homeowners cast bal-
lots on whether they favored
paying additional property tax-
es to get the job done.


Eleven said no; six said yes.
The commission earlier
agreed to authorize the $4410
per lot special assessments if 75
*percent of the voting property
owners favored it. Monday's
total fell short of that mark.
Mike Brown, who helped
organize the effort to authorize
the county's first MSTU (mu-
nicipal services taxing unit),
told the board he also was per-
plexed as to why so few voted,
and voted the way they did.
The Hemlock Dr. resident


requested a re-group and post-
ponement of the matter. That
would put it off until next year
because of a July 1 deadline for
the tax collector to include spe-
cial assessments on next year's
tax bills.
Commissioner Alex Rob-
inson, whose district includes
Macclenny South, met with
supporters recently and said
during the Monday meeting he
assumed the measure would
easily pass. He suggested to

Burn ban hasno effect on

fireworks sales; prohibits

shooting them offfor now
The outdoor burn ban is still in effect in Baker County, and that
applies to setting off fireworks on the July Fourth holiday weekend
unless the ban is lifted during the next two weeks.
For the time being, the ban initiated May 27 still prohibits burning
anything outdoors, but as the Baker County Commission learned the
evening of June 16, it
does not prevent the
sale of fireworks.
The county had
been contacted by
an anxious Phantom
Fireworks, concerned
that its biggest rev-
enue block of the year
would be crippled if
the burn ban includ-
ed a moratorium on
sales.
Not so, ruled
county attorney Terry IN
Brown after a perusal
of the ban ordinance.

box in the late spring.

afternoon, showers
have eased the situation somewhat with 3.39 inches.
"It's still dry," observed county fire chief Richard Dolan earlier
this week. "The ban is in effect, and we want to warn people particu-
larly about the fireworks. They can buy them, but we're asking them
to hold off celebrating until it's safe."
Independence Day revelers will still have a chance to crane their
necks at "the rocket's red glare," however, at supervised fireworks
shows on July 1 at Northeast Florida State Hospital and July 5 at the
county fairgrounds.
SChief Dolan said any decision on lifting the ban later will be a
joint one with the US Forest Service, Division of Forestry, the coun-
ty and city fire departments.
USFS has staged fire-fighting teams in the Lake City area, fearful
of outbreaks like the Bugaboo Fire last year that scorched hundreds
of thousands of acres.

Baker Bullets hitbulls-eye in first meet...
The Baker County Family YMCA sponsored Baker Bullets swim team competed for thefirst time in the Y's new pool last Satur-
day, and it was the first time in over 20 years a swim team representing Baker County hosted a local meet. Andy Johnston and
Alice Oswald coach the team. The Bullets competed against two other YMCA teams from Jacksonville, Arlington River Fins
and the Yates Barracudas. In the combined scoring the Bullets finished first with a score of 610, the girls were second with 261
points and the boys were first with 349. Arlington finished second with a combined score of 475 and Yates had 220 points. The
next meet is June 28 at the Barco-Newton Family YMCA. PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIOAN


Insi ffcient votes for MSTU


Board:


no hikes


in service


fees in '09

No dice.
That's what the Baker
County Commission said the
afternoon of June 16 to raising
service fees in key areas like
fire protection, solid waste and
emergency services (rescue).
SThe board indicated in a
workshop two weeks ago it was
leaning heavily in that direction,
despite predictions of budget
woes during the fiscal year that
begins October 1. Though the
commission appeared to be in
unanimous agreement June 3,
Commissioner Alex Robinson
and Chairman Gordon Crews
shifted positions and dissented
when a straw vote was taken
during this week's workshop.
"It's not going to be fun and
it's not going to be popular,"
said Commissioner Robinson
prior to the vote. "I have dedi-
cated myself not to cut services
and I favor raising assessments
so we don't run short."
Commissioner Mike Griffis
stayed glued to his earlier po-
sition that rising gas and food
prices make this a bad time to
place added burdens on people.
"The timing is bad. It's go-
ing to have to go up eventually,
but we've got the worst econ-
omy we've had in 22 years. I
recommend keeping it (the fee

tributed their success to using lots of big vocabulary words and attention to details in composing their essay topic which focused

Insufficient votes for tax district...


(from page 1)
Mr. Brown that they re-convene
and he continue efforts to round
up support in the meantime.
SResidents agree the present
dirt roads are poorly designed
and inadequate. They are sup-
posed to be maintained by a
homeowner's association. As
private roads, the county will
not help in that effort, and is
banned from accepting any new
dirt roads.
The paving options include
"chip-seal" at an estimated cost
of $132,000 plus $8000 for en-
gineering, permitting and drain-
age.
The county would add 4 per-
cent interest to cover its borrow-
ing cost, making the per-lot total
$4410.
The more expensive "coal
mix" option would cost about
$215,000.
A situation like Macclenny
South would not occur today
'inderpresent'rules'requiring de-
velopers pave roads then pass on
the cost to lot purchasers.
Amandia Deyo, a three-year
resident of Macclenny South and
a pregnant mother of two young
boys, ages six.and one, said last
week her main concern is that if
her road gets paved, drivers will
go even faster.
"I'm all for [fixing] the ditch-
es to have better drainage, but
the speed limit is 15 and they go
at least 45," she said. "I've had
them lose control of their cars
and come into my yard."
However, she predicted
wrongly that 75 percent of her
neighbors would favor paving
the bumpy and often washed out
roadway. "They'd probably get
75 percent because it was really
close before," she said, referring
to previous public input meet-
ings held with residents by the
county.
Sarah Holland, an eight-year
resident said, "It's hard to get
in and out and it tears your car
up."


And while said she didn't have
the cash to pay the assessment all
at once, by spreading out the as-
sessment over her monthly prop-
erty tax payments, the increase
would be minimal.
"I think it would be pretty
awesome," she said of the proj-
ect.
For 14-year resident Faye
Reed, it's the fact she can't pay
$4400.
"If it passes, I'm going to fight
it," she said. "I call Charlie Crist
if I have too."
Sarah Padgett addressed the
commission at Monday's meet-
ing, insinuating that supporters
of the MSTU were purposely

The friend, who by then was co-
operating with police, arranged
to swap vehicles with Mr. Oliver
and the suspect revealed he was
staying at Ocean Pond to avoid
arrest.
The Baker County Sheriff's
Office was notified and con-
verged on the campground.
The Okeechobee report indi-
cates Mr. Oliver was arrested at
the Citgo station near I-10 and
US, 90 west of Sanderson after
he agreed to meet the friend
there for the vehicle exchange.
Mr. Oliver was transferred to
the south Florida county from
county jail. His bond is $2 mil-
lion.
In another recent arrest, Alex
Clay, 18, of Macclenny was
brought to county jail from Du-
val County on June 11 after his
arrest on multiple charges.
A warrant had been issued for
Mr. Clay, wanted on two counts

mischief and resisting arrest.

schedule) another year."
Commissioner Julie Combs,
who has drawn opposition in
her bid this fall for a third term,
echoed Mr. Griffis, as did Com-
missioner Mark Hartley.
"My number is zero," he de-
clared, repeating a declaration by
Commissioner Griffis moments
earlier.
"It's never a good time (to
raise assessments), and it's going
to be worse next year," predict-
ed Chairman Crews before the
straw vote.
The workshop vote was sug-
gested by county manager Joe
Cone, who reasoned there was
little use in debating the ordi-
nances authorizing added fees in
the public hearing portion of the
meeting later that evening.
The two dissenting commis-
sioners held fast during the for-
mal consideration of fire fees,
despite an impassioned plea by
county chief Richard Dolan to
find funding relief somewhere in
the new budget.
The vote to keep the solid
waste fees the same at $55 per
household was unanimous,
mainly because the commission


learned that revenues from the
New River landfill are covering
operational deficits and no mon-
ey is siphoned from the general
fund, as is true with emergency
services and fire.
The proposed ordinance estab-
lishing a separate EMS fee never
got a motion or second, nor did a
companion one setting the rates
at $20 per household up to $650
for a large commercial customer.
All of the fee schedules are simi-
larly configured.
Chief Dolan argued forcefully
for some new revenue, pointing
out that volunteer departments
are perilously low of manpower
during daytime hours when most
calls come in to the county's
eight stations.
"The districts around the city
(of Macclenny) are okay, but
how much fat can you cut out of
a volunteer fire department?" he
queried.
Chief Dolan repeated earlier
concerns that recruiting volun-
teers will be more difficult be-
cause so-called "run money"
divided among stations does not
cover the cost of getting to ei-
ther a station or scene by private
vehicles. Training demanded by


the state for Firefighter 1 status
(authorized to go into burning
structures) is taking more of a
volunteer's private time, said the
chief.
He favors funding one station
with full time employees, and
suggested a federal grant can be
used for seed money, a concept
opposed by Manager Cone be-
cause he fears the county will be
faced with too great an expense
when the five-year grant term
expires.
Instead, the board agreed this
week to seek the grant, and use
funds to reimburse volunteers
for training and other expenses.
Commissioners were anxious
following Mr. Dolan's remarks
to express support for the de-
partment and dozens of volun-
teers.
"We just can't go up to $104
this year," said Commissioner
Griffis. "We have to look at oth-
er avenues (for revenue)."
"I apologize if you feel this
commission doesn't care about
the fire department," added
Chairman Crews.
The household fire fee will
remain at $27.50.

Big businesses get breaks...
Dear Editor:
We read with astonishment the article about the City of Macclenny
and Baker County Commission considering an ordinance to charge
local farmers and produce growers $300 a day to sell their products,
even on their own land. They were actually combined with transient
peddlers. A
These local farmers and their patrons who enjoy fresh produce at
a decent price are the very people who voted these boards into office,
and if they push this bill through, we promise all county and city com-
missioners involved will be job hunting after the next election.
We are so sick of hearing, I'm one of you and I'm for you vote
for me" and the minute they are elected, it's "Let's get their money, -------
boys!"
Have they given big businesses such a break that they have to tax
farmers and everyday citizens to cover their losses?
Wake up! When you get through bankrupting the little guy, do you
think Wal-Mart Distribution Center or any other big business you have
a free ride to will pay your salaries?
Will you next tax the FFA kids? We wouldn't be surprised.
Nancy and David Foss
Justin Lanier
Sanderson
(Editor's note: the county ordinance that passed first reading this week B
permits produce sales and yard sales on private property without per- I
mit purchase, as long as the vendor obtains permission from the prop- 0"
erty owner.)


Eureka!' moment teaches you to stop and look deeper


THE BACK

PORCH
KELLEY LANNIGAN

I was visiting the ag center last
week to get some information on
the recent 4-H awards ceremony
when I ran into Dr. Kyle Brown.
He hangs out there a lot in the
afternoons these days, having
taken over the responsibilities,
on a part-time basis, of horticul-
tural agent Baibara Smith, who
left the position a couple months
ago.
He told me he was delighted
to be spending afternoons at the
center, helping the public with
gardening questions and re-
searcling information pertinent
to the county's agricultural and
horticultural needs.
"Besides," he told me, "It'll
keep me from killing myself in
my own yard."
SI understood, fully, the signif-
icance of this comment. Now re-
tired, a good chunk of the good


doctor's attention is devoted
to caring for the many species
of palms,, flowers, fruit trees, a
small nursery and a greenhouse
filled with tropical plants on his
acreage just north of Glen St.
Mary. No small feat in the blaz-
ing fury of Florida's summer
temperatures.
As I pulled up
to the ag center's
front door, there
he was, standing,
staring intently at
the wall. I saw ab-
solutely nothing of
interest on the wall,
myself. w
Infront of him was
one of the large con- cterpi
trainer gardens that
flank the entrance.
There were few leaves on the
plants and they looked to be in
need of a good dose of water and
some tender loving care. I teased
him about it.
"What in the world, Kyle?
Folks come here to learn to grow
flowers, not kill them."
He smiled.


"It's so wonderful," he said,
gesturing to the sad looking pot
of what used to be robust herbs
and colorful flowers.,
For a split second, I was a bit
confused, but I held my judge-
ment in reserve. I have learned
that the good doc-


tor
looks at the world around us in
a very different way than the
average person. He has shown
me some remarkable things and
shared fascinating facts about
plants on many occasions. I sus-
pected this might be one of those
EUREKA! moments.
Dr. Brown intently studied

seen the caterpillar from which
it developed.

like they had been assaulted
with hedge clippers, but now the
origin of the disappearing foli-
age became clear. The swallow-
tail caterpillar, along with other
caterpillar species, had stripped
the tasty plants of their leaves.
The nutrients and carbohydrates
in the leaves are converted into


energy for the upcoming cre-

happen in a future spring.

the changes it has gone through
to achieve that beauty.

New River will seek to


reach pact with EPA on


landfill funds in reserve


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Usually in the landfill busi-
ness, being out of compliance
with environmental regulations
is not a good thing. But accord-
ing to advice given to the New
River Solid Waste Association
board of directors by its attorney
Jon Wershow on June 12, there's
sometimes an upside.
And it's roughly a $320,00
upside if you ask New River
landfill's Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal.
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) regu-
lates the closure of landfills and
requires that money about
$7.2 million in New River's case
- be set aside in escrow to seal
up landfill cells correctly, should
for some reason the tri-county
landfill cease operation.
Mr. O'Neal's $320,000 figure
represents the difference be-
tween investing landfill closure
funds on the bond market, which
typically yield 4-6 percent inter-
est, and the 1.64 percent interest
return on an escrow account.
DEP regulations stipulate
where escrowed closure funds
can be invested, and the agency
prefers investments that are liq-
uid, meaning they can be sold
for quick cash.
But that's not in line with
what New River has been doing
with its closure funds, which are
being managed by Mercantile
Bank. New River has been us-
ing bonds and other non-liquid
investment instruments.
"DEP wants it liquid, but that
doesn't happen," Mr. O'Neal told
the board. He said he recently
passed on an opportunity to pur-
chase bonds returning about 6
percent because of the compli-
ance issue with DEP.
The board directed Mr.
O'Neal to work further with
DEP to find a mix of liquid and
non-liquid "money-making ven-
tures" for the closure funds.
"Noncompliance could mean
a fine for us and that's why
[DEP] needs to be a partner,"
said the director.
In other financial decisions,
the board last week approved


the final invoice payments to
its former engineer, Darabi
and Associates, totaling about
$16,000, and releasing a request
for proposals (RFP) for a private
company to takeover recycling
collections at the landfill and
purchase New River's equip-
ment as part of the deal.
The board also approved
spending $3800 to repair the
sensors on its 16-year-old truck
scales. To replace the scales
would cost between $60,000.
and $70,000, said New River's
Assistant Director Perry Kent.
In other business:
New River's engineer, Jones
Edmonds, was tasked with per-
forming a $33,000 study of the
landfill's tipping fees, which
will be helpful in finding out
how much New River's partners
- Baker, Bradford and Union
counties could save by con-
solidating garbage collection at
the regional level and offering
a private waste collection com-
pany a franchise to perform the
service.
The board approved adver-
tising a bid to purchase a new
compactor.
The board awarded a
$104,000 road resurfacing proj-
ect to Ellington Construction of
Lake Butler.

Dolan sees need for full time


fire department in near future


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Does Baker County need a
full-time fire department?
Probably not yet, but in
the next decade as the county
grows, Fire Chief Richard Dolan
said the demand for services is
coming, and his department -
manned by about 100 volunteers
- could use some help.
"I've been able to look at
needs for our county and the
needs are there," Chief Dolan
told county commissioners dur-
ing a workshop held June 3. "My
manpower is so low... There are
calls that go unanswered. It's
time we have a full-time fire de-
partment... It's getting scary."
Only about half of Mr. Dolan's
firefighters, 53, are certified
as firefighter 1, which means
they've completed 160 hours of
state-mandated training.
The chief worries that when
the' t.ate requires 240 hours for.
that certification next year, he'll
lose'manapower --the men and-
women, most of whom work
jobs during the busiest part of
the day for the department, 7 am
to 7 pm.
Capt. Mark Renninger of
Glen St. Mary Station 50 has
been a Baker County volunteer
for 11 years and spent 19 years
with the City of Jacksonville
Fire Department. He works
evenings at Fidelity National in
Jacksonville.
"You have to have dedication
to want to do this," he said.
A younger Station 50 volun-
teer, Jonathon Robinson, has that
dedication and wants to pursue a
career in the field.
"Ever since 2001, what those
firefighters did in those tow-
ers," said Mr. Robinson, "that's
how I feel about it. I like being
a firefighter and I want to learn
more."
County commissioners, who
would ultimately make the deci-
sion to pursue a full-time depart-
ment, have said there's simply no
way to pay for it, even with grant
funding available to cover pay-
roll for the department the first
year of operation.
In recent discussions among
commissions, the.board has
taken a hard line in a tight bud-
get year raising the county's
$27.50,per year fire assessment
fee won't be happening anytime
soon.
"As a homeowner I under-
stand," said Mr. Renninger, who
recently returned from train-
ing in Glen Cove Springs with
younger volunteers. The county
furnished a truck to get them
there. "But that [the truck] is no
guarantee," he said.
County Manager Joe Cone
knows the financial reality of
paying for a full-time fire de-
partment. "We're not in a posi-
tion to pay for it at this time," he
said.
And although he wouldn't
say, the county truly needs a

full-time fire department, he
said, "I think we need more than
what we have."
His plan is to'investigate giv-
ing volunteers more incentives
to keep them working.
SVolunteer firefighters are
paid based on how many calls to
which they respond. Each month
the department gets $2334 to di-
vide up between its 108 volun-
teers, the average per volunteer
varies between $4 and $6 per
call.
"We should at least reimburse
them for their expenses," said
Mr. Cone.
Also, since the state is requir-
ing more training hours, he said
the county should look at paying
for the training itself and paying
a little extra for the trouble.
"It'd be interesting to see
how much that costs," said Mr.
Cone.
Mr. Renninger loved the
idea.
"That would be great if we
could do that," he said. "Only
about nine of my certified fire-
fighters are available during
peak times. I don't have them
around during the daytime when
89 percent of calls come in.
We're very much short-handed
during the day."
But the county manager has
been hesitant, given that a ma-


jority of commissioners haven't
advocated for a full-time depart-
ment, to pursue grants to achieve
that goal.
The grant that could cover 90
percent of the first-year's payroll
is actually a five-year grant that
diminishes each year until a full-
time department is fully funded
by the county.
For instance, in the second
year, the county would pay 20
percent of payroll while the state
grant pays the remainder. The
next year, the county's portion
increases to 30 percent, and af-
ter five years, it's 100 percent.
"That grant is very enticing,
but in five years you're going to
be a full-time fire department
whether you want to or not," said
Mr. Cone.
Many other rural counties
like Baker still use volunteers,
for instance Putnam County, and
Columbia County. only recently
started a paid department.
, "It'Sa, rymaU percentage "
Mr. Renninger said of the num-
ber of municipalities with paid
departments.
At its June 16 regular meeting,
the commission approved appli-
cation for the grant, and for the
present favors using proceeds to
supplement volunteer expenses
and training costs.

A circuit judge sent two
probation violators off to state
prison after they entered pleas
during the regular session of
criminal court on June 16.
Edward J. Field, 47, of Sand-
erson will serve a minimum/
mandatory three years for vio-
lating probation earlier this year.
He was originally charged with
four counts of aggravated as-
sault on police for pointing a
pistol at several officers the
night of April 11, 2005.
Deputies had gone to his
residence off Boyce Rd. on a
disturbance call, and Mr. Field
was waiting for them in a drive-
way armed with a pistol. He also
pointed the gun to his head and
threatened suicide.
The other probation-related
sentence was handed down by
Judge Phyllis Rosier to Fate
Holcy Jr. of Macclenny, who
drew 102 months in prison after
a plea change.
Mr. Holcy was convicted in
2003 of lewd acts on the 15-
year-old daughter of his girl-
friend, and he violated proba-
tion by failure to attend classes
for sex offenders. He also has a
prior criminal record including
carrying a concealed weapon
and grand theft.

Brothers ar


deputies att

Two brothers, one of them a
juvenile, were arrested early on
June 11 after a physical confron-
tation with several county depu-
ties in the parking lot of the CVS
store in downtown Macclenny.
The youth, 16, was booked
for felony battery on Deputy
Wayne Limbaugh while the of-
ficer and Deputy Jerald Peterson
were arresting his 20-year-old
brother Jason Fountain for in-
terfering with an investigation
about 4:30 am.
The officers confronted the
brothers and Mark Vien, 22, of
Macclenny walking in the neigh-
borhood and stopped them for
questioning. The older brother
refused to quiet himself while
Deputy Peterson questioned Mr.
Vien, then resisted when Deputy
Limbaugh attempted to hand-
cuff him.
The juvenile grabbed Depu-
ty Limbaugh from behind and
wrestled with the officers be-
fore he was handcuffed. As Sgt.
Greg Burnsed and Deputy Mike
Hauge answered the other offi-
cer's call for assistance, Deputy
Limbaugh administered a Taser
jolt to Jason Fountain when he
refused to lie on the ground.-
In addition to the felony
charge, the juvenile faces a
single count of resisting arrest
with violence. Jason Fountain
was booked for interfering with
an arrest and resisting with vio-
lence.
Mr. Vien was not charged. He
and the older brother have the
same W. Ohio St. address. The
juvenile has a Jacksonville ad-
dress.
Deputy Limbaugh sustained
injuries to his shoulder and
arms.
In other battery arrests, Al-
len Ellard, 23, of Baldwin was
charged just after midnight on
June 14 with punching Timothy
Harris, 26, of Callahan while
the latter sat in his vehicle at
the Amoco station in downtown

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, June 19, 2008 Page 8


'Trained killer' found drunk,


staggering
Three intoxicated underage
suspects and an adult who po-
lice say furnished them beer and
other alcoholic beverages were
arrested in the early morning
hours of June 10 after they were
found at the city park off West
Blvd. in Macclenny.
Tracey Murphy, 40, of Jack-
sonville was seated in a vehicle
next to one belonging to Joshua
Brown, 18, of Glen St. Mary
when they were approached by
police about 3:20 am checking
out a report of suspicious per-
sons.
Deputy Nicky Mizell said the
underage individuals including
Mr. Brown, Randall Lawrence,
also 18 and from Glen, and a 16-
year-old female from the Deer-
field Subdivision south of Mac-
clenny, were intoxicated. The
female said Ms. Murphy bought
the alcohol from an area conve-
nience store.


along US 90 in Glen


Ms. Murphy admitted she
also had been'drinking, and ini-
tially said she went to the park
to speak to Mr. Brown about a
job in a fast food restaurant. She
was arrested for contributing to
the delinquency of minors.
The others were charged with
possession under the age of 21.
In another early morning ar-
rest, this one on June 15, a Jack-
sonville man was charged with
disorderly intoxication after
he was found staggering in the
middle of US 90 near Wildcat
Dr. in east Glen.
Deputy Mizell said Barry
Mitchell, 24, of Jacksonville
told her he thought he was in
Baldwin and headed for a church
there. He also advised the offi-
cer and Deputy Michael Lagle
that he was a trained killer who
would not be handcuffed.
Deputy Mizell did so and took
him to jail. Mr. Mitchell several


times gave police a false name,
and his true identity was discov-
ered by use of a fingerprint scan-
ner at county jail.
Marjorie Christmas, 53, of
Sanderson was charged with
drunk driving when her speed-
ing 2002 Nissan was stopped af-
ter pulling off Glen Nursery Rd.
late on June 13.
Deputy Mizell said she was
on routine patrol near the Citgo
station at I-10 and CR 125 about
11:20 when a clerk alerted her
that Ms. Christmas had been in
the store in an intoxicated state.
Deputy Mizell saw the suspect
drive south on 125 and turn west
on Nursery picking up speed.
Ms. .Christmas staggered
when she exited her car, then
failed several field sobriety tests
before being taken to jail, where
she measured .209 and .202 on
the breathalyzer.


Man taunts, moons deputy and crowd


One of two men who police
say pulled down his pants and
mooned a crowd outside Mac's
Liquors in downtown Macclen-
ny the evening of June 14 was
arrested for disorderly conduct.
A deputy sheriff and witness-
es at both the lounge and park-
ing lot of the BP store to the east
said Melvin Mann, 26, of Mac-
-clenny was taunting the group
gathered outside about 8:00.
Also attempting to provoke a
fight was Nicholas Byram, 25,
who lives at the same Florida
Ave. address as Mr. Mann.
Sgt. Greg Burnsed said Mr.
Mann, who was not wearing a
shirt, pulled his pants down as
the officer drove onto the scene.
Lt. Billy Miller, who was near-
by, said Mr. Byram was driving
around the BP parking lot reck-
lessly and attempting to provoke
someone in the crowd to fight.
Sgt. Burnsed said security
workers at Mac's kept the crowd


back.
In other cases, a passenger in
a vehicle that was observed by
a county deputy abruptly stop-
ping in the intersection of US 90
and CR 125 in downtown Glen
St. Mary early on June 16 was
charged with disorderly intoxi-
cation.
Deputy Micheal Hague said
he was on patrol about 1:24
when he saw a 1992 Honda
driven by Travis Simmons, 17,
of Jacksonville stop in the inter-
section, then pull into a parking
lot directly behind another west-
bound vehicle.
The driver of the second
vehicle, Ciegie Parkin, 18, of
Jacksonville told the officer the
Honda had followed her from
Macclenny, alternately going
slow and speeding up when she
got ahead of it.
Leighton Cannon, 18, df
Jacksonville was booked for dis-


Purses taken from unlocked

vehicles in same area at night
Purses and contents were stolen from two unlocked parked ve-
hicles in adjoining neighborhoods during the night on June 10.
Crysta Roberts reported her purse and contents including identi-
fication, credit cards and a cell phone were taken from outside her
residence on Copper Field Circle in northwest Macclenny. Value of
the loss was $510. Ms. Roberts said her husband left for work about
1:15 that morning and noticed the passenger side door was open and
an interior light on.
He closed the door thinking she had left it open.
In the Sands Pointe subdivision to the north, someone entered a
vehicle belonging to Candy Creekmore and took similar items. Value
of the loss was placed at $65.
Diana Thronton reported a tote bag was taken from her Toyota,
probably when it was parked off Glynn Allen Rd. south of Glen St.
Mary overnight on June 13.
The bag contained two portable PlayStations and seven games,
along with medical items. Value of the loss was $160, and there is a
possible suspect.
A 2007 Polaris ATV stolen in Columbia County was recovered
off Tall Pine Rd. on June 10.
Sgt. James Marker of the sheriff's department learned the ATV
was stolen when checking out a reckless driver call that afternoon.
Karen Barron, who lives at the address, advised the vehicle belonged
to Jason Bassile, who in turn said he received it in trade for a dirt bike
from Gerald Wilkerson and did not realize it was stolen.

while he questioned the driver.
SAurelio Cristobal, a Mexi-
can national no age or ad-
dress listed was charged with
having no driver's license and
faulty equipment on his 1998
Chevrolet after it was stopped
on US 90 at Owens Acres the
evening of June 13.
A criminal complaint, the
second one in two weeks, was
filed against Kyle Duncan, 20,
of Macclenny for allegedly vio-
lating a domestic violence order
by repeatedly telephoning a 16-
year-old former girlfriend.
The girl complained on June
13 of numerous calls from both
Mr. Duncan and his current girl-
friend. He reportedly now lives
in Orange Park.

A St. George, Ga. woman
was arrested the evening of June
12 attempting to leave the Wal-
Mart Supercenter in Macclenny
with a number of items, includ-
ing a 5000 BTU window air
conditioner.
A store security employee
stopped Rhonda Brevaldo, 37,

Don Crain, Donald Willis, Darlene Rockefeller and Bo Walker with their trophies.


Father's Day at the COA


was first in putting out a candle
flame with a squirt gun (it fizzled
and flickered, but didn't actually
go out).
Finally, it was time for the
long awaited Wet T-shirt Contest
that had been announced several
days before the carnival, to get
their attention, of course. Yes,
the T-shirts were wet, but they
were size "newborn" and we
had fun throwing them back and
forth across the room. George
Gay was good at catching them,
so he won the contest.
Bo Walker was presented a
trophy for being the oldest fa-
ther attending. He is 88. Donald
Willis won for having the most
children (8), and Donald Crain
was second for raising the most
children (four of his own; five
who weren't).
To finish off the morning of
fun, there was a Pie in the Face
contest aimed at the activity di-
rector. David Kurtz all too anx-
iously said he wanted to be the
one to throw it at her. Then Jack
Alexander, a true gentleman, re-
moved his hat and volunteered
to take the pie for her. Not want-
ing to be outdone, David said he
would be willing to take a pie in
the face for her, too.

By Darlene Rockefeller
Baker County Council on Aging
The Baker, County Council
on Aging celebrated Father's
Day on June 13 with an Old
Time Carnival.
The senior center was deco-'
rated with brightly colored table-
cloths, crepe pWper, balloons and
prizes, and filled with the aroma
of fresh popcorn. The men sat in
the center of the room ready to
enjoy some fun, although some
were a little skeptical, and the
ladies were anxiously waiting to
watch them.
Two of the ladies sang circus-
type songs to set the mood. Then
the games began.
Three men agreed to start off
by trying their hand at knocking
down cans with sponge balls.
Don Willis emerged the winner.
In the next game, Don Crain
won by snagging little fish
crackers in his mouth. David
Kurtz won the tie-tying contest,
and Bo Walker won the "guess
the lady's weight" contest. Mary
Gay reluctantly volunteered,
and Bo missed her weight by
only four pounds!
Larry Brooks won a contest
consisting of eating a peanut
butter cracker and then chewing
a piece of bubble gum.
He beat all other contestants
as the first to blow a bubble.
George Lyons and Don Crain
tied for first tossing ball caps
onto 2-liter bottles. J.R. Smith

f4,e%4 YOUR HEALTH
& By Joseph Ruis
B.S,ATC/L, SCS, PES

In previous articles we have discussed the importance of understanding the
weight loss process, the benefits of exercise, and nutrient timing.
This week we will discuss the importance of compliance, and how it relates to
your success in weight loss.
If you have ever begun a weight loss program and haven't been successful,
compliance could be why. Too often, I see people fail at their attempts because
they either attempt 100% compliance, or they fail to adhere frequently enough. .
It is important to realize that you are setting yourself up for failure, in the long
term, when you create an environment that requires absolute perfection.
Simply stated, success in your attempts to lose to weight does not require
100% compliance.
Yes, the more frequently you adhere to your weight loss program the quicker Je" Ruis
you will see results. However, I believe a more practical approach is to stick with
90% compliance. This approach is more sustainable, especially for those who have more than just a
few pounds of weight to lose.
No one is perfect, so don't expect yourself to be. Stick with your program 90% of the time and
you will still achieve your goals. Leave the other 10% for your favorite foods, or to allow for special
occasions like birthdays or holidays.
The information provided in this article is intended for informational purposes only and is not in-
tended as a prescription for diet or exercise. Always consult with your physician before altering your
diet or beginning any exercise program.

Y day camps

atBCMS
If you happen to drive by the
Middle School any weekday,
you may wonder what is going
on and why what seems like
hundreds of kids are playing on
the campus. Has the school been
turned into an elementary school
all of the sudden?
Actually, it's the YMCA sum-
mer day camp going full force.
On any given day, between 80
and 100 kids ages kindergarten
through the 7th grade are having
fun, going on field trips and in-
volving themselves in learning
activities.
The kids play soccer, freeze
tag and sharks and minnows.
They also make arts and crafts,
have reading time and dance.
It's fun also for the staff, most
of whom are high school-aged
and have worked at summer day
camp for several years.
The kids also swim three
times a week at the YMCA pool
and go on field trips. So far this
summer they have gone ice skat-
ing, to the movies, visited Camp
Immokalee and water parks,
all under the supervision of the
YMCA counselors.
For more information about
summer day camp call the
YMCA at 259-0898.
