Wants legacy to be


positive difference


Outgoing Supt Barton
The sign near an exit door of Superintendent
By Paula Barton's office has been hanging there
since she took over in November, 1996.
Jim It reads: "What have I done today that made
a positive difference in the lives of children in
McGauley the Baker County school system?"
Press Publisher It's a question the outgoing superintendent
says she has repeated to herself at the end of
the workday for 12 years now. Some days the
answer has come easy; others not so easy.
As she takes leave as head of Baker County's 4500 student public
school system with its 650 employees and $46 million annual
budget Ms. Barton would
very much like her legacy to
be that. of "positive differ-
ence," whether people realize
now or later.
"This job is all about rela-
tionships and building a high u
level of trust in and out of the -, .
system," she believes. "Our O ,
legacy is really all about the .f"
people who follow us,,what
we've done to make it better
for them:"
The 56-year-old superin-
tendent announced earlier
this year she would not seek
a fourth term, preferring to
set a course more oriented to
her two grandchildren, lei-
sure and other interests. As

surprise, and set off a flurry
of speculation on who would succeed her.
The voters decided that last week, giving PreK/K principal Sherrie
Raulerson a one-sided mandate. On November .17, Ms. Raulerson
a political newcomer will take office.
Paula Barton was pretty much a political newcomer when elected
a dozen years ago, with the exception that she belonged to a deep-
rooted Baker County family and her late father Paul was county sher-
iff in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
She took over from Tim Starling, whose free-wheeling political
style contrasted greatly with Ms. Barton's business-like, highly orga-
nized and taciturn demeanor. Her three terms at the helm of the coun-
ty's education bureaucracy for years the second largest employer
in Baker County behind Northeast Florida State Hospital were
marked by what can best be described (See page 5)

One day in 1968, an offi-
cial looking letter arrived by
military mail carrier to Camp
Holloway in the city of Pleiku,
Vietnam. The mail room clerk
reported the arrival to admin-
istration and the letter's recipi-
ent, military policeman Mark
Dowling, was called in for
questioning.
He looked at the return ad-
dress and discovered the letter
was from Alan Boyd, his uncle
and also the United States Sec-
retary of Transportation. He
laughed when he finally un-
derstood the concern about the
letter.
"I didn't know it then, but
soon learned that there were
soldiers that used connections
to senators and other public of-
ficials who could pull strings to
get them released from active
duty," said the soft-spoken Mr.
Dowling. "But it wasn't that at
all, it was just a routine family
letter."
Mr. Dowling, who was
raised in Taylor, was a student

election office records, she spent
the cash on advertising and cam-
paign events.
Her opponent, Jacksonville
teacher and Macclenny resident
Vinnie Ferreira, was outspent
during the campaign by about
$3000.
Mr. Ferreira received $7562,
mostly from himself, but also
from local contributors and the
Republican Party, which donat-
ed $450. According to his cam-
paign finance reports, money
spent since late August went for
advertising and stamps.
Sheriff Joey Dobson was re-
elected last week to his fourth
term and also had a campaign
funding advantage throughout
the three-way race for the coun-
ty's top law enforcement officer.
The candidate had raised
more than $26,000 by October
30.
Mr. Dobson's contributors
since late August included Baker
County residents and businesses
like a Glen St. Mary title compa-
ny. Other cash came from Jack-
sonville, including the plumber
and pipe-fitters union and a le-


gal services company.
The sheriff also spent the
most of any candidate, close to
'$25,000, by hosting a number of
events and transforming a build-
ing in Glen into his campaign
headquarters. Use of the space
was donated by Mikell Crews, a
telephone company executive.
The campaigns of sheriff
candidates Timothy Smith and
Gregory Bohannon were both
self-financed. Mr. Smith spent
$2106 on advertising and food
while Mr. Bohannon spent
$3900 solely on ads.
District l's new county com-
missioner, Michael Crews,
raised $10,317 through about
mid-September, the last period
for which he filed campaign fi-
nance reports.
The reports showed $6207
from the candidate himself,
$500 from the local.Republican
Party and $300 donated by a
quail hunting operation in Kis-
simmee, Fla.

and election day supplies as his
campaign expenditures.

less labor intensive than the old
processes," he said. "The 15
positions would've likely been
eliminated in 2009 with comple-
tion of the upgrade."
Nonetheless, the decision to
let workers go was hasted by
what the CEO called, "the total
meltdown in the market." The
Sanderson plant employed 65
workers last summer and is now
down to 50 positions. When
asked if the downsizing would
be permanent, Mr. Woltz said
market conditions would deter-
mine staffing levels at the plant.
"The outlook for 2009 has
deteriorated dramatically over


15 more


the last 45 days," he said. "So
Insteel is really in a hunkered
down position." .,
In fact, a review at the compa-
ny's stockprice over the last year
shows a drop from the mid-July
high of $20 per share to less than
$8 a share in late October.
"It is a first class facility with
great people and a great record
of safety and productivity, so
this was a very difficult step for
us," Mr. Woltz said of the local
plant.

facturing operations laid off

of suffrage crusade


This year, a record number of
.Baker County residents turned
out to vote in the 2008 general
election. .
Early voting was popular. Last
week's edition of the newspaper
featured a photo of the 5000th
person to vote, and that was the
Saturday before the election.
In the early
1900s, it was il-
legal for women TH E
to vote. The
subject of the PO
same photo,
taken back then, KELLEY I
would no doubt
have featured
the woman being arrested.
Because of that, voting for
me has less to do with support-
ing a particular candidate than
celebrating the act itself. Over
the years, I've experienced in-
stances of discrimination, chau-
vinism and sexual harassment,
and there are few woman who
have not. But a person my age
doesn't remember the time in
this country when women were
completely disenfranchised and
the right to vote was not the only
thing they were denied.
Women at that time simply
desired the same "inalienable
rights" as those of their male
counterparts. Those rights in-
cluded: being allowed to speak
in public, an equal education,
equal access to trades and pro-
fessions, equality in marriage,
the right to make contracts, to
sue, to own property, testify in
court, guardianship over chil-
dren and the right to vote. To
women of today, the denial of
such freedoms based solely on
gender seems the stuff of far-
fetched fantasy.
To attain the right to vote, a
courageous group of women
known as suffragists had to un-'
dergo sustained ridicule, threats,
societal and familial ostracism,
imprisonment, torture and star-
vation.
The starvation was self-im-
posed and initiated byAlice
Paul, a young suffragist from
New Jersey. The denial of basic
rights, among them the right to
vote, was a full frontal assault to
her Quaker upbringing, which
promoted a belief in gender
equality and the need to work
for the betterment of society.
When Alice would not be
broken, a metal frame was re-
peatedly strapped to her face,
her jaws pried apart and a rubber
tube inserted into her stomach,
through which she was force fed
raw eggs. Even so, the other suf-
fragists followed her example.
Public outrage over the treat-
ment of these women increased
over time. Pressure on President
Woodrow Wilson, who had stub-
bornly resisted the issue, would
ultimately result in the ratifica-
tion of the Nineteenth Amend-
ment. In 1920, women would
finally have their long-denied
right to vote.
, I have tried to imagine myself
in the same situation as the suf-
fragists. Would I been as brave
as they? When I look back at
the legacy of the woman's rights
movement in this country, I find
that suffrage activity began be-
fore the Civil War and once
again, I'm impressed at the cour-
age it took to fly in the face of
established convention.
The first women's rights
convention was held in Seneca
Falls, New York in 1848 and was
described by one newspaper edi-
torial as "the most shocking and
unnatural event in the history of
womanity." From that day, wom-
en's rights conventions began to
take place around the country at
regular intervals. Former slaves
Frederick Douglass and Sojourn-
er Truth, both champions for the
rights of all people, were outspo-


I

[


ken advocates for women.
I would have given anything
to be present in Akron, Ohio in
1851 when Ms. Truth gave her
now famous speech "Ain't I a
Woman?" in which she decried
the notion of women as physi-
cally fragile and mentally weak.
Ms. Truth's sentiments were
summed up
BACK thusly:
A C K ... ifthefirst
woman God
RCH ,ever made was
k H M strong enough
ANNIGAN to turn the
world .upside
down all alone,
these women together ought to
be able to turn it back and get
it right side up again! And now
they is asking to do it, the men
better let them."
From all accounts, that speech
enthralled the audience and put
in its place the critical clergy in
attendance engaging in undigni-
fied heckling of the speakers.
I live in a time when my opin-
ion is not only welcome, but has
actively been sought after by
the members of committees and
boards I have served on. It's my
vote that has helped decide who
takes office, how money is spent
and whether or not a new policy
is adopted.
These activities are second
nature to me, along with com-
ing and going as I please, living
where I choose, thinking and
saying what I believe. Yet, there
are still disenfranchised people
the world over without the lib-
erty to do so, who live in fear for
themselves and their families by
engaging in such acts.
Although I am not always
happy with all election results,
a democratic election and my
right to vote are what is most'
important. It is, as history has
indicated on numerous volatile
and often bloody 'occasions, a
precious privilege that people
are willing to die for.

.- ca ie m"/"be,,in new administration


Well, another presidential election has come and
gone and I am once again on the outside looking in.
I felt certain with the electorate demanding change
this year that voters would come to realize there
was no one candidate that would provide a bigger
change for this country than me.
I will not be bitter and I am prepared to offer the
president-elect my services. I know
he is in the process of putting to- V
gether his cabinet and so I want to I i,
throw my hat in the'ring right here
and now and let him know I am THE M
available for a cabinet position.
As for my qualifications, if he ROBERT
'is: as interested in change as he "
claims, I'm his man. I can make change happen.
When I was in 'cbllege'one summer I worked as a
desk clerk at the Lake City Holiday Inn and I can
make change with the best of them.
You need change back from that $700 billion in
bail-out funds? No problem. Here's $78,532,028.
Don't spend it all in one place.
I may not be the obvious choice for all the cabinet
positions, but I think I have above adequate qualifi-
cations for many of them. Here are a few I could fill
as well as the next guy.
V/Dept. of Transportation I drive a 1997 Chev-
rolet Venture van with a slow leak in the, left front
tire and a bad power steering seal that leaks like a
sieve. If that doesn't make me an authority on the
troubled American auto industry I don't know what
does. I've been nursing this'van along for years and
so I understand how embattled Ford, General Mo-
tors and Chrysler executives feel.
V Dept. of Commerce As I demonstrated with
last week's column I have a keen
understanding of the problems of
economy. Since the next major
financial hurdle looming on the
horizon is the credit card crisis
- where people begin to default
left and right on their credit card
bills, as Commerce Secretary I
will propose Credit Card Am-
nesty Months. PriVate *
Every other month people
who are up to their ears in credit Complete
card debt like me get a break Bath, De-
on interest payments. For those
months, credit card companies Boarding (
will have to forgo charging in-
terest penalties. That will .give
consumers a chance to catch up
on their outrageous credit card
bills.
I will also nationalize e-Bay.
Imagine all the junk this country
owns that's just laying around in
warehouses and basements all
over Washington. We'll sell it all
off in a gigantic national garage
sale.
That Hummer you own isn't
big enough for you? How about
trading it in on a 1965 M-60
tank? You'll be the envy of ev-
eryone at the hunt club when you
drive up in that baby. It is the ul- ..,n i
timate off-road vehicle. Besides '
that 105 mm gun can bag a buck A"IT
from three miles away.
Need to stock up on hurricane TREE S
supplies? Worry no more about


finding what you need. On USA-Bay you can buy
the entire Cold War civil defense supplies of Bis-
marck, North Dakota for about what you'd pay for
a small generator at Home Depot.
Ladies have you always admired how Jackie
Kennedy dressed and wanted to have that same
sense of style? Now you can. Buy Jackie's original
inauguration gown for just pen-
nies on the dollar.
Department of the Interior also
interests me.. It operates all the na-
ATTER tional parks and is concerned with
conservation and maintaining our
GERARD beautiful country. I have some
thoughts on that.
As a longtime resident of Baker County I have
a great love of the Wide open spaces and firmly be-
.lieve we should have more of them. Driving along
Blanding Boulevard the other day I noticed literally
dozens of strip shopping centers standing empty.
They have been for years.
With Bob as your Secretary of the Interior, I
would convince the new president to issue an ex-
ecutive order that any retail space standing empty
for more than five years be bulldozed and reclaimed
for green space. Thousands of new parks with trees
and playground equipment would be much better
than empty stores and cracked concrete. Think of
all the jobs for the construction and heavy equip-
ment industries.
Yesiree, President-elect Obama. I am the forward
thinking kind of guy you need on your cabinet. I'd
be.a big improvement over all those stuffy politi-
cians who usually get the jobs.


We've goft what you need
at prices you can afford!

Arrest for lewd acts


A student athlete at Baker
County High School was arrest-
ed late last month after several
witnesses told police he exposed
his genitals in class and also sex-
ually harassed a female student.
The victim, 15, told campus
deputy Faith Mizell October 22
that the 16-year-old male from
Macclenny had pulled down his
pants and exposed himself to her
and other students on several oc-
casions.
The girl, who is also from
Macclenny, said the suspect had
repeatedly made rude gestures
and comments toward her, even
after she asked him to stop, ac-
cording to Deputy Mizell's re-
port.
Seven witnesses, both male
and female students 14 to 15
ears old, said they saw the
young man exposing himself
and grabbing the victim by the
hips or buttocks while making
sexually suggestive comments.
The student, was arrested
the following day at school and

said Principal Johnnie Jacobs.
Mr. Jacobs said student pri-
vacy laws prevented him saying
whether the young man was dis-

However, the parent of a witness
said she believed the suspect
had been expelled, or at least re-
moved from the high school.
According to the school dis-
trict's policy for handling stu-.
dents accused of felony crimes,
Superintendent Paula Barton
said a principal can recommend
the defendant be transferred to
the Alternative School pending,
the outcome of his or her case.
She likewise cited confiden-

state whether that action had
been taken.

caller, who she told Deputy Paul

man, said he got her information
from the victim's friend.
The caller then started asking
sexually-related questions and
making statements that showed
he knew what Ms. Addison, 25,
was wearing and that her boy-.
friend's black truck was not in
the yard.
"The caller then asked her if
she ever wondered what it would
be like to be raped," said Deputy
Chance's report. The victim im-
mediately hung up and called
her, boyfriend, during which
time she received six more calls

has worked well.
"When someone comes in

them is if they have talked to the

(from page 1)
finishing up his forestry degree
at Auburn University when he
received his draft notice. In Oc-
tober of 1967, he reported to Fort
Benning, Ga. for boot camp. Be-
cause of his scores on the battery
of aptitude tests given to all new-
ly enlisted men, he soon found
himself heading to Fort Gordon,
also in Georgia, to begin train-
.ing as a military policeman.
"I knew other forestry stu-
dents who were drafted and they
always got assigned to artillery
training because of their ability
with math and calculations," said
Mr. Dowling. "I was surprised
when they put me in MP train-
ing, but something on my test
indicated I was suited for it."
During an MP seminar, a spe-
cific fact was drilled into the sol-
diers' heads over and over: The
only place you can control is the
spot on which you are standing.
Even that isn't guaranteed.
"That was the philosophy we
lived by day in and day out," said
Mr. Dowling.

In-country

The quiet country boy soon
found himself in a place vastly
different from Baker County
- the city of Pleiku on the
Cambodian-Laotian-Vietnam-
ese border.
Mr. Dowling was assigned to
the Company B 504th Military
Police Battalion. Although there
were numerous soldiers serv-
ing as MPs, he was in the only
combat attack MP battalion in
Vietnam.
Known as the Road Runners,
this special detachment of nine
soldiers was a convoy escort,
daily accompanying vehicles
ferrying supplies from Fort Hol-
loway to an encampment in Kon-
tum some 14 miles away.
"There was a military pres-
ence in Kontum and everything
- -food, fuel, uniforms, ammo,
it had to be trucked in," he said.
"We made that run each day."
One MP jeep.- ebded the Qon-
vey.and aaheBl ought up'the
rear., he roadg.Ad be swepj.
and cleared as a precautionary
measure, but it wasn't a foolproof
system. The enemy covertly
managed to get land mines bur-
ied in their path anyway.
"I guess it's an understatement
to say it was unnerving when a
truck directly behind you blew
up when the truck you're riding
in just rolled over that very same
spot," said Mr. Dowling.
Ati night when the convoy
returned to Pleiku, the vehicles
would be so close together, a
soldier could turn around and
touch the antenna of. the vehicle
directly behind him.
Mr. Dowling recounts a series
of convoy runs during which a
pattern emerged. If he was in the


front MP jeep, the rear jeep was
blown up. If he was on the rear
jeep, the front one was blown up.
This pattern went on to the point
that the men in his detachment
would declare when they got
ready to depart: "I'm riding with
Dowling."
To this day, he says a daily
prayer of thanks that he missed
being the target of one of the
mines because other men, do-
ing the same job as he, lost their
lives.
Military police carried a .45-
caliber pistol, but used other
weapons as well. Mr. Dowling
recalls the night a mortar round
hit the radio bunker where he
was sleeping. When his fellow
soldiers realized he was not right
behind them in formation, some
went back for' him,' alarmed at
his slowness in responding.
"I wasn't about to let go of my
rifle long enough to tie my boots,
so I was doing it while, holding
on to the gun at the same time
which you can't do fast," he said.
"After that, they didn't worry
about me."

Policing his own

In addition to the native
Vietnamese, many other ethnic
groups lived in the cities. Mr.
Dowling remembers Australian
elephant handlers who lived and
worked in the city of Ban Me
Thuot, one of the areas,he pa-
trolled.
American's weren't allowed
on the city streets after 6:00 pm,
so part of the MP's job was to
make a street sweep each eve-
ning.
"That meant going into all the
bars and hustling people back to
where they belonged," said Mr.
Dowling. "We called it 'clean-
ing.'"
The MPs weren't concerned
with the native population. Their
purpose was to police and pro-
tect American military person-
nel. Any inappropriate behav-
ior, whether intentional or not,
would dra\% unnecessarN atten-
,.ti0 ',to i.ploiers and .e ethh.m

": Siucfolks would be rounded
up and temporarily detained in a
Con Ex Box a small version
of an overseas shipping contain-
er, with a cutout window over
which bars were welded. Inap-
propriate behavior, according to
Mr. Dowling, usually followed
having a bit too much to drink.
"You know, if a guy has had
three too many and is making a
total buffoon out of himself, that
guy needs, for his own protec-
tion, to be in a safe spot," said
Mr. Dowling.
"I remember one soldier who
got pretty angry at being put in
the box. We started hearing this
'slam! slam! slam!' noise over
and over again. Turns out the

When a group of MPs entered
a place of business, patrons typi-
cally backed away, giving them
a wide berth. But once, an Aus-
tralian man decided to challenge
Mr. Dowling in one of the bars.
The Australian stepped in
front of the soldier and stood de-
fiantly in his way, saying, "Just
what would you do if I grabbed
your pistol, eh? What if I did,
what would you do?"
"I suppose there's only one
way that you can find that out,"
Mr. Dowling responded.
The two men stared at each
other, unmoving. Finally the
Australian stepped away. Both
men approached the bar, side-
by- side. The Australian ordered
a beer, Mr. Dowling ordered a
Coke. Silent moments passed.
"Just curious about what you
would do," commented the Aus-
tralian, finally.
The two men consumed
their drinks, then, with a part-
ing.glance, went their separate
ways.

A simple soldier

As controversial as the Viet-
nam War became from the
American perspective, Mark
Dowling never questioned his
presence there. For him it was a
simple matter. He was drafted,
he reported for duty, he served.
He did not debate whether it was
right or wrong. His country re-
quired him to do a job and so he
did it.
He did not live in fear of his
life each moment or question the
fairness of the situation. There.
was always so much demand-
ing his attention he did not have
time to worry about it.
He wvas moving toward a goal:
defending his country, doing
his job and going home again.
"There weren't enough bullets in
Red China to keep me from go-'
ing home again," he said.
"Nlark's letters home reflect-
,ed that," say, his. otherr Jean
Dowling. "He didn't elaborate
on anything.', e just got to the
point. We got quite a few one
line letters."


According to Ms. Dowling,
her son's letters typically read:
Dear Folks,
I'm fine.
Love, Mark.
His sister Meredith once sent

Dear Mark,
We're fine.
Love, Meredith.

Kissing American soil

Mark Dowling returned from
Vietnam in the fall of 1968
aboard a commercial airliner
carrying 300 soldiers back to the-
states. As the plane soared over
Washington State, some of the
soldiers joked about it getting
hijacked.
"That," declared one soldier,
"will never happen. Not on this
flight, not when we're going
home."
"What he meant was this,"
said Mr. Dowling. "If somebody
was dumb enough to try some-
thing like that, he'd be rushed
by every soldier there, picked up
and pitched out the back door of


the plane."
When The Road Runners got
off the plane in Washington, ev-
ery man, including Mark Dowl-
ing, got down on his knees and-
kissed American soil.
Today, he keeps up with his
military buddies as a member of
the Pleiku Military Police Asso-
ciation. He attended the group's
21st reunion in Cocoa Beach
last month. These veterans have
maintained a relationship with
the country where they fought to
liberate south Vietnam from the
Communist north.
Each year they support a pro-
gram called.Operation Rice Lift,
which helps send much-needed
rice to. the country, which has
experienced continued periods
of civil unrest and the ravages of
drought.
Mr. Dowling still has his uni-
form. On the right shoulder is a
green and gold patch with a dis-
tinctive fasces symbol, a double-
headed ax of ancient Roman
origin the symbol of a magis-
trate's authority. Superimposed
over this is in upright sword. To-


Stnam...

gether, the two symbols signify
military law and order.
When he thinks of Vietnam'
now, Mark Dowling chooses to0
remember things not directly re-,
lated to the war.
He remembers how pretty a;
country it was, how the moun-
tains looked a lot like north
Georgia. He remembers the tea
and rubber plantations, estab-2
lished during the French oc-
cupation of the country and the
monstrous mahogany trees har-
vested for lumber, so big a single
tree filled an entire truck. Menus
in restaurants were still written
in French.' The lodge where his
detachment camped in Ban Me
Thuot was once used by Theo-
dore Roosevelt.
He feels lucky that he didn't
lose anyone he was close to dur-
ing his two years in service.
"You just did the best you
could. You did your job and
kept your head down and out
of harm's way," he said. "You
just believed that you'd get back
home again."

he has a letter of intent for 8000
square feet with "a national re-
tail tenant" for another portion
of the former Wal-Mart, which
vacated 43,000 square feet near-
ly two years ago.
"I'm not allowed to identify
pending tenants but I'd say that
tenant is highly likely to sign in
the near future," said Mr. Weaver
in a telephone interview Novem-
ber 11. The lessee is believed to
be Aaron's Rents, which already
has ten locations in Jacksonville
and northeast Florida.
Mr. Weaver,said a lease is in
the works for the former Hall-
mark store, and though he could
not confirm it is Aardvark Vid-
eo, his letter to tenants identified
it as one that has been in Mac-
clenny 20 years. Aardvark is the
only such store.
The new lessees join The Tu-
toring Center that opened in the.
former Friedman's Jewelers lo-
cation two weeks ago.
The news is particularly en-
couraging for neighboring Food
Lion, which along with Wal-
Mart was a traffic magnet at
Cornerstone for nearly two de-

Remaining tenants in Mac-

once a centerpiece of retail ac-
tivity before Wal-Mart moved
one mile east to SR 228, got
some encouraging news this
week with the announcement
of two new tenants moving into
long-vacant space along South
6th St.
Peebles, a secondary mar-
ket retailer based in Hous-
ton, signed a lease recently for
15,000 square feet of the former
Wal-Mart and plans an opening
in March, 2009. It sells national
name apparel, accessories, cos-

you each and every one.
Again the Merrie 'Melodie
Chorus sang, this time "Ameri-
can Tears" featuring a special
solo by teacher Shawna Wil-
liams. One of the main mes-
sages in the song highlighted the
privilege Americans are blessed
with to be living in a land where
liberty is a priority.
First graders from different
classes came forward and read
out loud the reasons they were
proud to be an American. Zias
Belford spoke first.
"I am proud to be an Ameri-
can because in America we have
good food, I can go to church,
play my drums and watch TV,"
he said. "And most of all, be-
cause I'm free."
" Other students spoke of the
awesome soldiers, getting to
vote and worshiping God. Stu-
dents also mentioned America
is a good place to live, family
members who fought in other
wars, the ability to be anything
they desire when grown up and
the fact Americans can buy re-
ally good toys.
"America" was then sung by
everyone, followed by a moment
of silence for veterans and the
current military.

close with an excellent rendition

cades. The grocery chain strug-
gled with the double-barreled hit
of Wal-Mart vacating in Janu-
ary, 2006 and the fact that its
new Supercenter has a grocery
store.
"Before they [Wal-Mart]
moved, we could count on a lot
of foot traffic [shoppers who
park their cars once, then visit
several retailers], and this will
help us get some of that back,"
predicted Matt Barfield, who
took over as manager at Food
Lion about the time Cornerstone
began to slump.
Even without the increased
tenancy, Food Lion's Macclenny
store has recovered from the
dour months following Wal-
Mart's departure. Mr. Barfield
said its current sales are up 25-
30 percent from last year. The
store's overall performance is
approaching the pre-Supercent-
er era.
Mr. Weaver noted that the
leases inside the old Wal-Mart
coincide with the expiration
of the least with the Arkansas-
based retail giant last month.


Pickup stolen from


north city residence


The daughter of an infirm
north Macclenny man reported
a pickup truck belonging to her
father was stolen from a resi-
dence off Eloise St. overnight on
November 9.
The vehicle belonging to Rob-
ert Velleca, who lives at the ad-
dress, was taken from aside the
driveway, according to Cyntha
Parsels, also of Macclenny. The
owner was away from the resi-
dence at the time, hospitalized
in Jacksonville.
The daughter told police no
one had permission to take the
vehicle, and its identification
numbers were entered into the
national crime computer.
In other recent thefts, a cross
bow and scope valued at $500
were taken from a garage at the
residence of Carl Wood on Fox
Run Circle in Macclenny. The
owner told police the theft oc-
curred between November 2-9.
*. Two Glen St. Mary women
were charged with petty theft for
allegedly stealing merchandise
at the Macclenny Wal-Mart on
November 4.
A store security employee told
police she observed Stevi Lay-
field, 27, and Amanda Roberts,
26, stuff items into a handbag
and confronted them as they at-
tempted to leave the store. They
admitted to the thefts when in-
terviewed by Deputy John Har-
din.
Ms. Layfield is charged with
stealing items valued at $103.21;
Ms. Roberts $61.33.
A student at Baker County
High School reported an iPod
Touch valued at $400 taken from
a gym locker room the morning
of November 3. It was stored in
a backpack.
A student at Baker County
Middle School named a 13-year-
old female suspect in the theft of
a cell phone from,a gym locker


room the afternoon of November
3. The student she named denied
taking it but located the phone
after saying she knew who took
it.

Completed park trail


:drawing increased users

Tranquilly, fellowship are bonuses


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The walking trail at the newly
upgraded Memorial Park near
downtown Macclenny has be-.
come a popular draw for those
needing some serious exercise
or just a quiet place to stroll and
relax outdoors.
The cement trail is just one of
many park upgrades made in re-
cent months. The improvements
have drawn new patrons to the
park as well as encouraged for-
mer ones to return.
"The lot is full of cars in the "
morning," said Kim Green, a
dental hygienist whose office
windows overlook the south-
east side of the park. "Lots of
folks come early to use the trail.
There's this big group of guys
that come out here and run."
She was a member of several
groups of ladies at the park in
the early evening of November
10. April Witherington was busy
pushing son Ryan in his stroller
along the trail, too.
Her 7-year-old daughter Mika
, was amusing herself on the new
' playground recently erected in-
Sside the main park area. Swings,
a combination tunnel and slide
and some fancy monkey bars

located near the rest rooms. A
section of the trail passes right
by it.
The entire half-mile continu-
ous trail is fenced off from traf-
fic outside of the park. It includes
a section of exercise stations for
working different parts of the
body and benches for resting.
The trail can also be accessed
along Ohio Street where there
is a pedestrian gate opening and
plenty of room for vehicles if
joggers don't want to park in the
designated parking lots.
"What's great about the trail
is the view you have of the
whole park as you walk," said
Ms. Witherington. "I can let my
daughter play in the playground
while I walk and I can keep an
eye on her at the same time.
She laughs as she sees April's
head pop up through an open-
ing in the play tunnel. The small
blonde girl hops down and runs
to the swings where another
child is playing.
"Another thing I really like,"
said Ms. Witherington, "is that
it's quiet out here, very relax-
ing."
The typical trail user likes to
walk while chatting with friends,
combine socializing with some
easy exercise.
Others, like Wanda Parker,
are completely focused on the
exercise. Clad in black leggings,
leg weights, serious running
shoes,, with her phone strapped

the park since

"I walked

The recent installation of
lights along the trail now makes
it more user friendly, especially
for those whose work schedule
doesn't allow them come in the
morning or until later.in the eve-

light saving time, the lighting is
especially beneficial for late af-

It has been seven long years
since you departed this old
Earth, but it sure didn't take
long for us to realize your
worth. Oh how sad the holidays
since have always been. It just
doesn't seem like our hearts
will ever mend. Our Sunday
afternoons have never been
the same, to feed us all was
always your aim. At Christ-
mas time everyone was taken
care of and you always did it
out of pure love. The twinkle
in Dad's eyes had all disap-
peared; he wouldn't last long
we all seemed to fear. Then
three years later God called
Daddy home, no more on Earth
were his feet to roam. Once
again our hearts were broken in
half Daddy was no longer here
OVE, to make us all laugh. But one
ONY thing we all knew for sure this
time, no longer for Heaven and
you would he pine. We all seem
to picture that sweet reunion

Ten tips for

With busy schedules and life-
styles, keeping your mind, body
and soul healthy can be a major.
challenge. However, don't let
the hectic pace of life keep you
from living yours to the fullest.
There are simple steps you can
take that will leave you feeling
energetic and upbeat. Consider
these 10 tips to help you live
a happy, healthy, safe and bal-
anced life.
Get Physical
Exercise not only helps you
build muscle and lose weight,
giving you more self-confi-
dence, but it's vital in main-
taining a healthy heart. From
strength training and cardio
workouts, to walking the dog or
taking the stairs -- anything that
gets your heart pumping.
Stress is a Mess
Over time, stress can lead
to serious health issues such as
obesity, depression and even
death. When yo. start seeing
red, instead think blue, as in
blueberries. Antioxidants found
in the tasty fruit fight stress
hormones. Also, don't forget to
breathe. Inhaling a deep breath
for five seconds, then exhal-
ing for another five seconds,
can help clear your mind and
enhance blood circulation.

Tenn. coach


I'm no fan of the Tennessee Volunteers or Coach
Phil Fulmer, but it's absolutely ridiculous Fulmer
lost his job after the Vols struggled this season.
Fulmer's forced resignation at
the end of this season is symptom- A
atic of the unnaturally high expec-
tations that big time college foot-
ball powerhouses place on their ROBERT
high-priced coaches.
Fulmer has the third highest
winning percentage of any active coach behind only
Bobby Bowden and Joe Paterno. However, the Vol-
unteers have had a very uncharacteristic season.
Tennessee is 3-7 and lost a stunner to Wyoming
on Saturday 13-7. The team, loaded with talent as
always, is reeling from early season losses and has
been unable to regroup.
The debacle that has been the 2008 season was
unacceptable to Tennessee boosters, and Fulmer,
who makes millions as UT coach, was shown the
door.
The idea that a top coach like Fulmer can be
sacked after one horrific season is ridiculous. Ful-
mer's skills as a recruiter and coach don't just dis-
appear after one season. There's little doubt that a
high-profile program like Tennessee's will rebound.


ber a jamboree game counting
as a regular season game.
"The games have always
counted," said Cecil Horne, vice
president of the league. While
the games have counted as a tie
breakers in the past and are con-
tinuing to count as tie breakers
for the other two divisions this
year, Mr., Horne and Mr. Tharpe
have decided that the half-game
be used as a regular season game
this year. .
Despite a formal request from,'
the Steelers parents t6 share the!
"championship" with the 49ers,
Cecil Horne, David Crawford
and Rolland Gaskins met and
officially denied the request.
49er helper Kenneth Roberts,
who has coached the 49ers for
many years and is turning over
the reigns to his son, Tucker, this
year, said "I don't ever remember
the jamboree games counting as
a game. I'm surprised."
Steelers Coach Mitch Mitch-
ell laughed at the idea that half
a garfe be counted as a regular
season game. "We would be 2
and 4 instead of 7-0 if you took
our half time scores this year.
These boys have fought back all
year. It's ridiculous and my par-
ents are upset, but in this league
you just have to roll with the
punches."


'ridiculous'


The same is true with Michigan, suffering through
its first losing season in 41 years.
There's little doubt that Fulmer will be swept up
by another program in short order
or that he will be successful again.
,A"' A new coach at Tennessee might or
might not be immediately success-
GERARD ful, but one thing is certain.
He shouldn't unpack for a
while.
Congrats to Jaguar running back Fred Taylor.
Everyone's favorite No. 28 was finally able to get
his 11,000th yard in the win over the hapless Detroit
Lions on Sunday. Taylor has struggled the past few
games, averaging only 18 yards rushing.
But against the Lions, even the injury-riddled of-
fensive line was able to restart the running game.
Taylor and Maurice Jones Drew ran aV over the Li-
ons and gave the Jaguars a much needed win.
Next week, however, Jacksonville meets up with
the undefeated Titans. Jacksonville always has a
way of stepping up for the big games, so I'm hope-
ful. After all, in their five losses they've only trailed
by an average of less than 5 points a game.
A five point swing and the Jaguars would be un-
defeated.


The BCHS Wildcats had the
week off as they prepared for
the final game of the regular sea-
son against a very tough Trinity
Christian squad, then a trip to the
playoffs. Most of the other teams
on their schedule were busy;
however. Here's a look at how
the opposition did in weekend
play:
Jackson cemented the dis-
trict title by blanking Raines 27-
0. The Tigers were dominating
with Darius McCray running for
147 yards.
Trinity shut out Baldwin by
an identical 27-0 score. Running
back Rashad Knight rushed for
nearly 250 yards against, the In-
dians. ,,- ,. ,'
Brett Whitmire there \ for
five touchdown passes as Bishop
Kenny defeated Suwannee Coun,
ty 59-7. Between Whitmire's
accurate arm and 229 yards of
rushing from Mark Butler, it is a
night that the Bulldogs will want
to forget.
ACD is playoff bound with a
50-15 win over St. Johns Coun-
try Day. The Apaches were led
by Dietrick Payne, who ran for
186 yards and a pair of touch-
downs.
Bradford County lost a heart-
breaker to Keystone Heights 14-
13.
Union County got a big win
over Chiefland 47-14.
Vanguard lost to Ocala For-
rest 47-20.
Ridgeview clinched its first
district title with an impressive
31-14 win over Columbia High


on the road in Lake City. Der
Hatcher led the way for the 1
others with 246 yards rushing.

through Friday, except legal holiday, at North-
east District Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite
B200, Jacksonville, FL 32256-7590.
The Department will issue the permit with the
attached conditions unless a timely petition for
an administrative hearing is filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within four-
teen days of receipt of notice..The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed
(received 'by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Adminis-
trative Code, a person may request enlargement of
the time for filing a petition for an administrative
hearing. The request must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the
end of the time period, for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those
entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days
of publication of the notice or within fourteen days
of receipt of the written notice; whichever occurs
first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes,
however, any person who has asked the Depart-
ment for-notice of agency action may file a petition
within fourteen days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the'petition
to the applicant at the address indicated above at
the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a
petition or request for enlargement of time within
fourteen days of receipt of .notice shall constitute
a waiver.of ti ptror r,i ini .r r,-que i rt .ii

subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated
by another party) will be only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Admin-
istrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must con-
tain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone n(umler
of each petitioner, the name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner's representative, if
any; the Department permit identification number
and the county in which'the subject matter or
activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each peti-
tioner received notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are affected by the Department
action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of mate-
rial fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or modification of the
Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, as well as the rules' and statutes which
entitle the petitioner to relief; and
S(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action that the peti-
tioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is
designed to formulate final agency action, the filing
of a petition means that the Department's final ac-
tion may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final decision of the
Department have the right to petition to become
a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative
hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue me-
diation. The election may be accomplished by filing
with the Department a mediation agreement with
all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who has filed a timely
and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agree-
rnent must contain all the information required
by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code.
The agreement must be received by the clerk in
the Office of General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten
days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set
forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not
result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Stat-
utes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate
will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statues, for holding
an administrative hearing and issuing a final order.
Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the me-
diation must be concluded within sixty days of the
execution of the agreement. If mediation results
. in settlement of the administrative dispute, the
Department must enter a final order incorporating
the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to
protect their substantial interests that would be
affected by such a modified final decision must file
their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice or the shall be deemed to have waived
their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation ter-
minates without settlement of the dispute, the
Department shall notify all parties In writing that
the administrative hearing processes under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain
available for disposition of the dispute, and the
notice will specify the deadlines that then will ap-
ply for challenging the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes.
