District will spend


$4 million on new


addition to BCMS


Where the old junior high
school once stood on South-
Boulevard in Macclenny,
another two-story building
will rise a new wing to
Baker County Middle School.
The rough-
ly $4 million
addition will By
be the district's Eri
only two-story Erin
school when Petrie
it is com-
pleted, which Press Staff
should e
before the start of the 2009-10
school year. Royal Concrete
Concepts, the contractor, esti-
mates construction will begin
in February or March.
The new addition will cost
$116 per square foot and con-
tain 23 classrooms plus one
office.
Most of the building will be
made off-site and put together
at the location.
"This is money that can't
be spent anywhere else,"
Superintendent Paula Barton
said, continuing that the
mnoneN the district has for the
structure cannot be allocated
for teacher raises or any other,
uses.
The district also focused on
making the building pleasing
to the eye.
"The aesthetic value of
these buildings is very impor-
tant to us," Ms. Barton said.
One feature will be inside
air conditioning units. In terms
of practicality, it will have a
partly flat roof with enough
pitch to allow water to run off.
The Baker County School
Board approved the agree-
ment with Royal Concrete at
its meeting Nov. 3. The board
also approved a 100 percent
grant-funded project to install
hurricane-proof screens on
Macclenny Elementary the
only approved hurricane shel-
ter in the county. The screens

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Two of the county's most
commonly used buildings
Emily Taber Library and
the Agricultural Center will
soon undergo some sorely
needed improvements, and in
the library's case, an expansion
as well. I
Plans for a new 2700-
square-foot library addition
were presented to county com-
missioners last week and the
board approved a $17,000 con-
tract to fix leaks in the historic
library's 100-year-old gutters
in September.
Commissioner Mark Hart-
ley expressed slight concern
during a workshop October 27
about ensuring the new struc-
ture doesn't detract from the
library's appearance on Mc-
Iver Street in downtown Mac-
clenny.
"I just don't want to ruin that
building," said Mr. Hartley af-
ter suggesting the addition's
corners be beveled to match
those on the library. However,
the right-angled corners shown
on architect Ken Smith's plans
could be softened using land-
scaping, said library director

bound motorcycle on US 90 be-.

thought she had sufficient time to .
cross the two west lanes to the I-

Library addition, ag center repair approved


(from page 1)
April Teel. .. ',
"'We' woutld1t'dge so inkh
room b) doing that," she said'of
rounding the corners.
The board also wanted
the exterior of the addi-
tion to match that of the
library. To that end, red
brick, white trim and.a
window design similar to
the library's will be used
to make the addition's ap-
pearance less jarring to
passersby.
"I've seen that, where
they add on an addition
with something like vinyl
siding and it doesn't look
good," said Ms. Teel. .-
"This will look good."
The architect's plans
include an elevator and
staircase to the library's
second floor as well as the
one-story addition. The
elevator will make the
second floor wheelchair
accessible and the new
building will consist of
more book stacks, handi-
cap-compliant bathrooms
and a room for library
programs, particularly those for
children.
"We'll be able to do more
children's programs in house,"
Ms. Teel said. "Now we have to
use the woman's club from most
of it."


The addition, which will be
located on the south side of the
!historic library, is being funded
through a $500,000 grant from
the state library system.

The roof of the ag center.


The county was expecting
close to that much a few years
ago to replace the damaged roof
on the Agricultural Center on
West Macclenny Avenue. Un-
fortunately, then Governor Jeb
Bush cut the project from the


state budget.
Last %%eqk though, the county
requested bids for a ne\ roof at--
the facility and. sbo.itij ha\e the
job completed by the end of the
year.
Mike Sweat said the
roof was replaced 15
years ago and con-
sistently leaks.thanks
to numerous missing
shingles that were
blown off during a
... hurricane in 2005.
Water intrusion has
--' caused rotting and
..;,'.. warping of the roof's
..._. plywood sheeting,
..- and also cracked the
-- ceiling in the lobby in
five places.
"We don't have the
luxury of a commu-
nity center or conven-
tion center," said Mr.
Sweat, adding that it's
critical to maintain
the building in good
condition. "This is all'
we got."
The bid advertise-
ment calls for replace-
ment of the 11,200-
square-foot roof with either
20-year shingles or metal roof-
ing. The metal alternative would
last longer and require less up-
keep, but is more expensive.


"The big unknown, because
of the leaks, is how much of the
sheeting is rotted.": said.GoCiinty
:Manager Joe Cone. :WVe,'al-
lowed for replacing 12 sheets
of plywood, butanything more
would have to be approved by
the county."
He expects a large amount of
interest in the project because
construction work has slowed
considerably along with the
economy.
"It's a good time to put it out,"
Mr. Cone said.

She was also honored for her
12 years as superintendent, as

school board meeting and her
last in the position.
Her colleagues honored her
with praise, gifts and Dr.

Two sets of Dr. Seuss books

munity.

no resemblance to real life.
So instead, I run to Bill the
Congressman and say, "Look,
if I'm going to go down I'm go-
ing to topple this whole house of
cards I've built and hundreds of
banks and financial advisors are
going with me."
Instead of telling me it serves
us all right for playing fast and
loose with other people's money,
Bill, who by the way has gotten
thousands of dollars in campaign
contributions from these same
banks and financial institutions
says, "Well, we can't have that.
That would endanger the whole
economy. We'll just have to bail
you out."'
So, that's just what he and his
buddies in Congress do. ,They
give me $750 billion in govern-
ment money and shake their fin-
ger at me telling me not to do it
again.
I don't guarantee that's how
it went, because, like I said, I'm
no financial genius. But it could
well be I'm just stupid enough to
have figured it out.


IMPRESSIONS
JIM McGAULEY
Last week, Baker County got
a chance to see how it's done
- the right way.
A respectable crowd gath-
ered on October 27 for the grand
opening of Hagan Ace Hard-
ware on US 90
in what we'll
call east Glen ,
St. Mary. It .'?'
replaces a
smaller loca-
tion on US 90
inMacclenny,
and at 43,000
square feet
including
the outdoors
and lum-
ber depart- ..
ments, it's
Baker Count3 's first
taste of the larger scale hardware
model.
More important perhaps is
that Hagan is the first major re-
tail operation west of Macclenny


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
I'm going to put on my Finan-
cial Advisor hat and try to figure
out the Wall Street bailout.
I've been watching the ever-
changing financial situation on
Wall Street with growing inter-
est. Not because I am a financial
whiz-kid, but just the opposite.
Here's the odd thing about it. I
am so completely ignorant about
finances in general, and stocks
and bonds specifically, that I am
amazed by how stupid people in
the know really are. In fact, they
are just as stupid as me., Here's
a metaphor to explain what I
mean.
It's as though Wall Street
drove a dirt road and missed a
turnoff it should have taken. So
Wall Streeters start turning down
roads at random to get back to
the main highway. Pretty soon
they are so lost that even if they
backtracked they couldn't get
back to where they are supposed
to be.
Being a guy, I have done that
. on a number of occasions. That
allows me to kind of understand
how the stock market got into the
predicament it is in now.
The problem as I see it and
keep in mind I know nothing
about managing money, just ask
my wife if you think I'm lying
is this. No one.-actually deals
in real moner on Wall Street.
No greenbacks' o6r silver ever re-
ally changes hands. They send e-
mails and wire money from one
bank to another, but nobody ever
sees the cash so it's impossible
to keep track of what they're do-
ing. Pretty soon, like on the dirt
road, they've gotten so far away
from what ordinary people like
me and you would do with our
money they can't find their way
back to the hard road, or in this
case the hard currency.
It's like this. Bob the Finan-
cial Advisor goes up to another
Jim the financial advisor (cousin
to Joe the Plumber) and asks to
borrow $1 million. Now Jim
doesn't really have a million in
hand, but I tell him that I don't
really need his money anyway,
just a promise of it so that I can
go to another bank and borrow
$2 million..
Since I don't really need his
money he says, "Sure," and I
go to a big bank with a letter of
credit from Jim. The bank looks
at the letter and says, "Sure," and
loans me the $2 million.
That was easy.
In fact, it was so easy I do it
again. And again. And again. I do
it over and over until I've made a
billion dollars or so without ever
seeing a penny of real hard cash.
I use this phony money to float
all kinds of risky housing loans,
just knowing that I'm going to.
double or triple my money in no
time.
All is going well for years and
Bob the Financial Advisor is su-
per rich. That is, until the housing
market tanks and the banks that
loaned me all my phony money
want it back.
In short, they want me to throw
it in reverse on all those dirt
roads until I get back to Jim the
Financial Advisor who promised
to loan me $1 million he never
had in the first place. Jim starts
screaming blue murder at me and
I'm in serious trouble. Not only
am I going under,' but I'm going
to take Jim and the banks that
loaned me all that phony money
with me.
Because somewhere along the
line that phony money turned
real. Oops.
What am I going to do now?
In real life I'd probably go to
jail.
But Wall Street has absolutely

on US 90, a strip ripe for com-
mercial development in the next
two decades. It's a great start.
The future of US 90 between
the two towns (truly they should
be but one town)-has been a bit
worrisome. The, last thing we
need is hodge-podge develop-
ment with ugly signage and traf-
fic routing that makes traversing
the four-lane stretch a major pain
and eyesore.


0 11
converting agriculture and resi-
dential to commercial use are
a lot tighter than they used to
be, and along that stretch of US


90 west through Glen St. Mary
they need to get even tighter.
Setbacks, landscaping require-
ments, building appearance,
signs, lighting, driveway access
and other details all affect how
the area is perceived by the pub-
lic.
We should avoid another
South 6th St. in Macclenny with
distracting, unattractive signage,
varying setbacks, tired-looking
used car lots (some of which


yards),
confusing architecture and all
too many entrance and exit ave-
nues. Commercial strips like the
one envisioned by Macclenny
for South 5th out to the interstate
address most of those problems,
and the county would do well in
2008 or 2009 to tighten up the
rules before another building
boom hits.
Baker County consumers re-
spond to nicely constructed and
situated retail operations [Hagan
Ace has been very pleased with
traffic the past week]. Another
example is the new Woody's
location on South 6th, the: mnst
attractive restaurant venuein the
area,(Zaxby's isa ,eose ,second).
They spent the extra money and
it's paying off.
With the bulk of commercial
development and opportunities
along the US 90 strip still ahead
of us, it's a great time to envi-
sion what it can and should
- look like.
Just like Hagan Ace.

It was two years ago this month that Jackson-
ville Transportation Authority began running its
Baldwin Commuter Shuttle between Macclenny
and downtown Jacksonville, and according to JTA
officials, ridership is better than ever.
"It has been exploding recently .," said Liz Peak.

"It's about building partnerships and relation-
ships with neighboring counties, and that means
Baldw'in, even though its in Dut al Count\. and
Baker County," said Ms. Peak,
The recent spike in ridership on the Macclenny-
Baldwin-Jacksonville shuttle may be partly due
to a recent advertising push, which has included,
newspapers and billboards on Interstate 10. The
rise in gasoline prices last summer probably'
boosted the number of passengers as well.
"We saw with the increase in gas prices there
was certainly a lot more interest in this type of
service. It's definitely a cheaper

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, November 6, 2008 Page 5


Glen to spend $4500


The Town of Glen St. Mary
voted October 21 to spend $4500
to replace a drainage ditch with
underground pipe on property
adjoining the site of an antici-
pated new home being built by
a relative of two council mem-
bers.
The request came from Rob-
bie Foster, the son of Council-
man Dickie Foster and the hus-
band of a niece of Mayor Juanice
Padgett. Both of them declared a
conflict before last week's vote
and abstained.
Ms. Padgett, however, has
been working on the ditch prob-
lem several months and reported
it previously to council mem-
bers. Four lots adjoin the one-
block ditch between Sherman
and Jefferson Aves., and Coun-
cilman Foster's son intends to
build a house on one of them for
re-sale.
Glen St. Mary does not cur-
rently have an easement for the
ditch, which Mayor Padgett says
has been clogged with debris
and overgrowth in the past. An
easement will be obtained be-
fore county crews lay the pipe
along the 260 feet east and west
route, with an expected width of
15-20 feet. Half of the width will
be sought from each owner.
"People living over there have
always complained about that
ditch," acknowledged Mayor
Padgett. According to a memo
included in last week's agenda,
the younger Mr. Foster sought
the fill-in because "he feels it is a
safety issue and liability for him
and the future homeowner."


Crimes down
(from page 1)
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Each law enforcement agen-
cy in Florida is required to file
reports with the state showing
how many .crimes occurred, how
many arrests were made and
how many crimes got solved.
From January to June of this
year, the Baker County Sheriff's
Office reported an 18.2 percent
decline in the' lumber of index
crimes, as compared to the same
period in 2007. Index crimes in-
clude murder, rape, robbery, ag-
gravated assault, burglary, lar-
ceny and vehicle theft.
"We've been kind of slow,"
said Sheriff Joey Dobson. "We'lt,
wait until the end of the year and
see what it is, but I don't believe
it will go up.".
The only index crime that
didn't decrease were burglaries,
with 31 reported in the first half
of this year but only 15 during
the same time last year.
Bradford and Union coun-
ties had even larger .drops in in-
dex crimes, at 29.1 percent and
19 percent, respectively. Index
crimes statewide,.on the other
hand, increased 1.6 percent,
namely burglary and larceny.
As the volume of most-crimes
in Baker County dropped, the
number of arrests overall, in-
creased 12 percent when com-
paring the first half of 2007 with
the first half of 2008.
Arrests for forcible sex were
up 67 percent, counterfeiting
and forgery arrests quadrupled,
non-forcible sex arrests doubled,
DUI arrests rose 83 percent, and
arrests for liquor law violations
increased from three to seven.
Murder, fraud, and vehicle
theft arrests stayed the same
while arrests for robbery, assault,
burglary, larceny and drugs, all
declined.
Looking at arrests in neigh-
boring counties, Bradford's
dropped 15 percent and Union's
jumped 42 percent. Arrests
across the state were up 4 per-
cent.
"What we're most proud of
is our solvability rate," said Mr.
Dobson, referring to the 2.8 per-
cent increase in crimes solved.
"I attribute it to the fact that dep-
uties do as much as they can on
the scene before handing cases


over to the investigators."
Mr. Dobson also credited the
neighborhood watch programs.
"We get a lot of tips 'and
leads," he said. "We have a
watchful eye out there to help us
solve crimes."
Bradford County boosted its
clearance rate by 12 percent and
Union County by 14.2 percent.
The percentage of crimes solved
statewide increased slightly by
1.3 percent.


It is not known if any of the
three remaining owners sought
such a remedy.
In other business last week,
the council was briefed.by plan-
ner Tony Robbins on the up-
coming submission of its com-
prehensive plan review. It will
involve assessing Glen's prog-
ress in several key areas before
final review by the stat6 of the
revised plan in 2010.
Mr. Robbins said his Orange
Park firm will be looking spe-
cifically at the future water sup-
ply needs and how to pay for
them, likely annexations and
expanded town limits through
2030, and pinpointing other
funding sources.
"Basically what the state [De-
partment of Community Affairs]
looks for and what we want to
give them is a big picture idea of
where the town is going to go,",
said Mr. Robbins, who plans to
submit a draft of the revision to
the state next month.
From there it will be digested
by DCA and returned to Glen
for clarification and fine-tuning.

Charged with DUI


A Macclenny man whose van
was seen swerving back and
forth inside its lane on CR 125
was arrested for DUI November
2 after he failed field sobriety
tests about 1:45 am.
Joseph Deese, 44, of John
Rowe Rd. was driving north on
CR 125 in front of Deputy Ben
Anderson, who noted the swerv-
ing and a brake light out as the
van approached the US 90 inter-
section.
The vehicle turned east and
Deputy Anderson put on his
lights to conduct a traffic stop
near US 90 and buval Lane.
The deputy said the van traveled
about one block, passing a num-
ber of driveways before stopping
in the south lane of the highway
and scraping its tires against.the
curb.
Mr. Deese had a difficult time
getting his license out of his wal-
let, said Deputy'Afiderson, and
smelled of alcohol. After failing
all the sobriety tests, Mr. Deese
was arrested and taken to county
jail, where he was given a breath
test that showed his alcohol level
at .03, which is under the legal
limit. However, due to the level
of intoxication evident at the
scene, the suspect was booked
for DUI.
In other alcohol-related ar-
rests this week, two women
were booked at county jail for
disorderly intoxication.
Deputy Anderson found An-
gela Schwartz, 25, of Adam
Road in Macclenny flagging
down traffic on US 90 near


Wildcat Drive October 29 about
3:00 am.
The woman said she needed
a ride home, and*while waiting
for it, Ms. Schwartz began to
yell at the deputy saying he had
no right to talk to her. That's,
when Deputy Anderson noticed
a strong odor of alcohol com-
ing from the woman, who began
walking toward US 90 in the di-
rection of traffic.
Ms. Schwartz refused to re-
turn to the deputy, and for her
.own safety and that of motorists,
she was arrested.
The second woman was
causing a disturbance at 9414
Mud Lake Rd. in Macclenny the
evening of October 27. When
Deputy Patrick McGauley ar-
rived he encountered a highly
intoxicated resident of the ad-
dress, Laura Thorton, 34, who
was attempting to leave in her
vehicle.
The'officer secured the ve-'
hicle and learned Ms. Thorton
had locked her husband in a bed-
room. When released, he said
Ms. Thorton had "gone crazy"
and that he wanted her to leave:
Ms. Thorton's brother picked her
:up and both left the residence.
However, shortly thereafter,
Deputy McGauley responded
to another disturbance at the
Kangaroo station on Macclenny
Avenue where Ms. Thorton had
become violent with her brother
and was yelling and demanding
cigarettes from the store clerk.
She was arrested, and taken to
county jail.

Four-timc felon strikes depu


A four-time felon from Mac-
clenny faces four more felony
charges after police say he
struck a deputy in the face be-
fore fleeing a location on Griss-
holm Street in the early morning
hours of October 30.
About 1:30 am Deputy Claude
Hurley spotted a silver Chevy
Malibu near 9th Street and South
Boulevard that matched a suspi-
cious vehicle reported earlier to
have followed another driver.
The Malibu pulled into the
residence of driver Lee Battles,
18, at 509 Grissholm St. where
Mr. Battles exited the car along
with a passenger, 22-year-old
Dominique Lee of 508 Quail
Lane.
Deputy Hurley questioned Mr.
Battles about the owner of the
Malibu and when neither man
could give the owner's name,
the officer ordered the suspects
turn and face the vehicle. That's
when Deputy Matt Reigel ar-
rived on the scene.
For "officer safety reasons,"
Deputy Hurley said he hand-
cuffed Mr. Battles and as Dep-
uty Reigel attempted to do the
same to Mr. Lee, he turned and
struck the officer with a closed
fist before running towards
Quail Lane.
Deputy Reigel gave chase but
lost sight of the suspect and re-
turned to the scene where Deputy
Hurley had found a fully-loaded
semi-automatic handgun under
the passenger seat. Mr. Battles
denied owning the firearm.
About two hours later, an-
other gun, this one a .22-cali-
ber pistol, was recovered from
a yard in the area of where Mr.
Lee fled. At 9:30 that morning,
Deputy Curtis Ruise found Mr.
Lee at 508 Quail Lane, where
he was arrested for battery on a
law enforcement officer, carry-
ing a concealed weapon, posses-
sion of a weapon by a convicted
felon and resisting arrest with
violence, all felonies.
In other incidents involving
violence this week:
A Tennessee man was ar-
rested during the early morning
hours of November 1 for do-
mestic battery after he allegedly
struck his girlfriend during an
argument at an address on East
Mclver St. in Macclenny.
Alex Timbs, 31, denied hit-
ting Angela Vinson, no age or
address given, and she refused to
make a formal statement about
the incident that occurred just
after 3:00' am. Deputy Christo-
pher Walker noted signs on the
left side of Ms. Vison's face that
confirmed her allegation, and
detected a strong odor of alcohol
coming from the boyfriend.
Two children, ages 9 and 3,
were at the residence at the time,
and Deputy Walker notified the
Department of Children and
Families.
A criminal complaint was
filed against Michael Collins,
39, of Macclenny for allegedly
striking Karen Johnson, 38, in
the back of the head with a cell
phone and hitting her in the
face.


The woman called police to
her residence off Red Fox Way
just before midnight November
1 and told Deputy Walker the
boyfriend left and went to a rela-
tive's ii Jacksonville.
A 14-year-old female was
arrested the,afternoon of No-
vember 2 after she attacked her
mother at a residence off E. Ohio
in Macclenny.
The mother, 34, told Deputy
Michael Hauge the daughter be-
came angry when a computer
printer malfunctioned, then at-
tacked her when she attempted
to brush away soap from the
daughter's ear. The accused al-
legedly scratched and struck her
before pushing her to the ground
in the front yard and kicking her
in the face .
The mother told the officer
her daughter has a history of vi-
olent acts and has been arrested


before.

Motorist in high-speed chase

abandons vehicle; drops in for

beer at a lounge when arrested

A 52-year-old driver who led police on a chase through Macclenny
November 1 was later apprehended at the Country Club Lounge on S.
SR 121 while having a beer at the bar. '
Leroy Bush faces three felony charges high-speed fleeing and
eluding, cocaine possession and evidence tampering as well as a
violation for reckless driving.
The incident began when Deputy Chris Walker noticed a green se-
dan he passed on US 90 shortly after midnight had a headlight out.
He turned around to conduct a traffic stop and the car pulled into
the parking lot at Mac's Liquors at a high rate of speed as the deputy
followed.
Deputy Walker turned on his lights and siren and the suspect's ve-
hicle began swerving and jumped the sidewalk. It headed east on US
90 before turning south onto 6th St. and continued at what the deputy
called a very high rate of speed.
That's when the deputy was advised to end his pursuit and follow
at a safe distance. Deputy Walker saw the vehicle turn onto the 1-10
westbound ramp but when he made the same turn the officer did not
see any lights ahead.
He continued to CR 125 and returned to SR 121 where he located
the vehicle abandoned in the tree line on the south side of the 1-10 on
ramp.
A check on the license tag showed it registered to a white van, but
a check of the vehicle ID number showed its owner residing on North
Thomas Drive where deputies learned the vehicle was sold to some-
one who lived on West Thomas Drive.
That subject was also reached by phone and located at the Country
,Club Lounge where Deputy Walker recognized the driver of the ve-
hicle, later identified as Mr. Bush. The suspect was then arrested and
taken back to the crash site to be interviewed by the Florida Highway
Patrol.
While talking with FHP from the patrol car, the deputy noticed a
white powder behind Mr. Bush that he noted was not there when the
suspect was placed in the vehicle. The substance tested positive for
cocaine.
Mr. Bush admitted trying to hide the drug and crashing the car,
said Deputy Walker. He was also found to have a warrant from Cam-
den County, GA.
In another drug-related arrest this week, six small plastic bags of
marijuana, two bags of partially-smoked marijuana cigarettes and a
grinder with marijuana residue was found in the purse of Heather
Gilg, 34, of S. 6th Street in Macclenny. Her vehicle was stopped at S.
Lowder St. about 9:00 pm October 30 due to a broken taillight.

$1000 purchase made


using stolen credit card

Three thefts of cash, credit cards and identification out of purses
were reported to the sheriff's department the past week, including one
taken from a shopper at the Walmart Supercenter.
Evelyn Thornton of Jacksonville said six credit cards, identifica-
tion cards and the wallet were removed from her purse, likely when
she was distracted for a few moments in the clothing department the
afternoon of October 31.
The victim said she was approached by a black female who in-
quired what size she was looking for, then informed her that an item
she sought was on the floor. Ms. Thornton bent over to pick the item
up, and later noticed her wallet missing.
She also told Deputy Wayne Limbaugh that when she reported the
card thefts, she learned her American Express had been used for a
$1000 purchase at a Walmart. It was not immediately known if the
purchase was at the Macclenny store.
Kayla Blackburn said a visitor to her residence on North Boule-
vard in Macclenny about midnight on November 2 likely lifted $150
from a purse sitting on a kitchen table.
She told sheriff's investigator Jeffrey Dawson the suspect she iden-
tified as Sean Word initially asked her for gas money, then to use a
bathroom. He passed through the kitchen to get there.
Employee Jessica Hayes of Macclenny said $100 cash was taken
from her purse at the KFC restaurant on October 26. She reported
the theft the following day, and named a new employee as a suspect.
Deputy Paul Chance said the suspect did not report to work the next
day.
*' Two females from the same address in St. George, Ga. were
' named in a complaint for petty theft shoplifting at Walmart the after-
noon of October 30.
A store security employee told Deputy Matt Riegel she followed
Shera Daniels and Carmen Taylor, both 20, for two hours and spotted
them stuffing clothing items and cosmetics into purses and pockets.
They were stopped as they attempted tb leave the store.
,S... The value of the pilfered merchandise was placed at $50.45.

Plastic bags an environmental hazard


MWCspeaker claims it takes 1000 years to break one down

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Plastic bags are made of polyethylene, a petroleum product.
In America between 500 bil-
lion and one trillion plastic bags
are manufactured each year. A
staggering amount make their
way into landfills and the envi-
ronrment as trash. It takes a thou-
sand years for a plastic bag to
chemically break down.
These are just some of the
facts about plastic bags and their
detriment to the environment
presented during a talk to mem-
bers of the Macclenny Woman's
Club at their October 16 meet-
ing.
The speaker was Debbie
Clark, a new member of the club
involved with.its conservation
division. Ms. Clark is a former
veterinarian and the recently
appointed leader of the Baker '
County 4H environmental focus .
club.
She is an advocate for "green"
practices and presented her talk
on plastic bags to enlighten
members and help foster think- 1.
ing toward using reusable can-
vas tote bags to bring home gro-
ceries and other products from
retail stores.
Ms. Clark gathered her infor-
mation and statistics from vari-
ous Internet sources. Other facts
about plastic bags:
Less then one percent are Debbie Clark
recycled and they cost more to
recycle than to produce.
As they decompose, the ('

become extremely toxic. Micro
particles make their way into the
food chain.

The Woman's Club service divisions frequently report on activities
and related topics during their meetings. Since conservation is the
division she had chosen to focus
on, Ms. Clark felt the subject
was timely and important and
decided to share it with the other
Members.
"If everyone switched to using
cloth bags, each person would
A .result in 288,176 less bags put
into the environment," she said.
"If we lessen the demand, the
amount of bags manufactured
would decrease, also lessening

produce them." -

Boy runners finish 4-2,


girls at 3-3; districts next

The Wildcat cross country team had two good showings the past
two weeks as they get ready for the district tournament this week at
Bishop Kenny.
The Cat runners grabbed wins against Yulee and Hilliard on Oct.
23 in Yulee. Both the boys' and the girls' teams took first place with
convincing times.
The boys scored 20 ,points, easily outpacing host Yulee's 47 and
Hilliard's 55. Luke Kennedy was the top finisher for BCHS with a
time of 19.26. Chris Tran was second in 19:47 and Noah Davis third
with a time of 20:02. Vinnie Dang was fourth and Dylan Kett fifth.
The girls placed first with 33 points, beating Yulee's 42 and Hilliard
at third with 57 points. Alexandria Rohde finished first in 24:26 and
Carissa Ward was second in 28:22. Erica Kinghorn was third, Kathryn
Hutchinson fourth and Autumn Jackson finished fifth.
"The athletes have had the ability to step up and compete consis-
tently all season long," said Coach Charles Ruise. He admitted that
their times aren't quite up with some of the top teams in the district but
that the team is practicing with enthusiasm and "will ride this all the
way through to district competition."
The Cats finished their regular season competition at the Middle-
burg Invitational on Oct. 28. The boys and girls competed against over
25 teams from around the Southeast with some of the best times they
will face.
"Our goal going in was to not worry about times or order of finish
but come in and compete well," said Ruise. His athletes responded
well and gained some valuable experience as a team.
The boys finished the season with a 4-2 record and the girls finished
3-3. The Bishop Kenny districts are on Nov. 6; the girls take the track
at 5:00 pm and the boys at 5:30.

Ms. Sands also tries to par-
allel as many of the Westside
school rules with the story line
of the play as possible, such as
responsibility, honesty or safety.
On the big day, usually a
Friday afternoon, the room is
cleared, the stage is set and oth-
er classes are invited to come in
and see the play. It will be pro-
duced four times so each group
has the chance to perform.
Familiarization with the pro-
cess helps students develop con-
fidence as they progress from
depending on the script to mem-
orizing their lines.
Preparations are now under-
way for The Little Red Hen, the
second play of the year.
The third play, A Thanksgiv-
ing Feast, takes place in Novem-
ber and The Elf Factory will be
the big play for December. It will
be staged for parents and visitorS
as well as students.

nity to get students excited about
learning science.
The events cover a range of
topics such as anatomy, chemis-
try, engineering, environmental
chemistry, and earth science.
All middle and high schools
in the north Florida area are in-
vited to compete at the LCCC
Regional. Information about the
Florida Science Olympiad, in-
cluding registration information,
can be found at www.floridasci-
enceolympiad.org.

registering a school for the Sci-
ence Olympiad or about volun-
teering to help out at the event,

LCCC associate professor of
mathematics via e-mail at scar-
cellie@lakecitycc.edu or by
