But first he intends to ask county
commissioners toadoptaonepercent
incrasein thebed tax, bringing it to
three percent. According to Florida
statutes, the rate can be increased
to fourpercent ifits used to pay back
debt.
"I think it's an achievable goal in
five years," Mr Bradley said of the
civic center. The project would put
Baker County on par with a number
of neighboring counties that already
have large venues.
"Wedon'tevenhaveaplacefor our
kids to graduate," he said, alluding
to fears that last week's graduation
would be rained out.
Though County Manager Joe
Cone said construction plans were
completed for a civic center after the
TDC was first constituted, the con-
strction cost for such a structure
remain unclear.
Officials believe its likely more
than $2 million, however.
Finding an appropriate piece of
property for the center will also take
homework

Mr. Cone. "It's going to generate traf-

that's translated into a slush fund of $266,ooo, and the board indicated this

Seerl weeks ago I began lear-
Ing a small section of Yergmeo,
dreadfullytangled hedge in myfront
yard and getting the ground plant-
friendly for the summer. Garden-
ing seemed like suc harelaxingand
rewarding pastime and I wanted to
give it a shot.
I pulled Virginia Ceeper and
hoeaysCdle ines until I the ght
I would scream and hacked at tree
rootsuntil I wasblue in the face. I
hauled off countless wheelbarrows
of debris. Next, I laid down a short
brick walkway from the yard to the
sidewalk. It took three days to ac-
complish all this and it screwedup
my bad shoulder and neck somc-
thing fierce. My "relaxing" garden-
ing pastime sent me to the chiro-
practor. I won't be doing this sort of
thingagain anytime soon.
It might be of interest to know
that y little front yardgarden plot
is in the same spot where last years
hurricane FayriPppedalarge tree
out of the ground by the roots and
unerthed an entire section of side-
walk. We won't even talk about the
broken waterpipe andthe destroyed
cableTV connection.
I'm not a landscape architect
nor do I ha e anything remotely
resembling a geen thumb, but the
results in my little plot are not bad.
Sunflowers and zinnias are getting
ready to bloom and the hibiscus has
been putting ona show.
My sage has blossomedfuriously
and the milkweed for the butterflies
is more than I expected. Even my
Roma and Early Girl tomato plants
arethriving.
At first I thought a lot about wa-
ter. Unlike our Country neighbors
who have their own wells, wepayfor
every drop we get from the city. Ali-
cia LaCborn at the -tension office
told me the average home allocates
about 40 percent of its summer wa-
ter usage to maintaining the yard.o
I knew I'd need to be smart about
wateringandyet I didn't want my
newly landscaped garden to suffer.
Plants need a lot of water when their
root systems are just getting estab-
lished.
Before last week there hadbeen
virtually no rainfallat allfor two
months. The meteorologists at Chan-

Mother Nature. She has a mind of
herown. When the old girl decides to
dump a foot of water in your neigh-

I know the dirt roads in Baker
County have taken a beating from
the recent deluge of rain. One mail
carrier whodelivers toNorth Canal
Roadfound the roads so impassable
she parked her truck and slogged
through the sand and water on foot
to deliver her mail. Some folks I
know who live off Woodlawn Road

But, after living through the

Justin Rose, an artist from Tay-
lor, is responsible for this remiark-
able culture and here is homw it
happened.
When Bonnie Upright, coordina-
torof the Turtle Trails fund raising
project contacted Mr. Rose several
weeks ago about crainga p cial
sculpture, he didn't hesitate to say
yes.
In the past, Ms. Upright devel-
opd similar manae and jaguar
fund raising projects for the Otis
Smith Foundation. The Turtle Trail
project will benefit the Child Guid-
ance Center, an organization that
provides professional mental health
sei c t. childrnandfamils.
Turtle sculptures, each uniquely
decorated by an artist and pon-
sord by a differn organiaion,
will be displayedat various locations
arounddackson. llforthenxtfour
months. The sculptures will then be
auctioned off with proceeds going to
the center.
Artists submitted ideas for deco-
rative designs and hose chose
were supplied with a blank turtle
sculptures designedbyPizzazz Sce-
iCon ractors.
With one turtle sculpture left
over, Ms. Upright hada ry specific
idea forit. Already familiar with Mr
Rose's work, she offered him the
chance to transform the turtle into
Tim Tebow.
Mr. Rose, owner of Artistic En-
deavors, creates custom interiors
for private clients. He attended the
Douglas School of the Arts in Jack-
sonille and the Art In titut of At-
lanta and had previously created a
fanciful Jaguar for the Kats for Kids
project in 2007.
TheTimTebow turtle wassome-
thing he couldn't resist, so he ac-
cepted and got to work.
Bonnie didn't even ask for my
design specifics. Since shed seen
myworkbefore, she let mehave fu
creative freedom andthatwas a real
compliment," saidMr Rose.
On May 20, the nearly completed
Tebow turtle arrived at the Sherwin-
Williams paint store in Macclenny
for somefinalcosmetic touch-ups.

The Tebow turtle kneels, as do

sit on the bent knee, making a good
backdrop forphotos.
Sal trah ic m crowns the tur-
tie's head and his huge shell bulges
inside his football jersey. Nestled
under one raised flipper is a full-
sized football.
When the real Tim Tebow is on
he field during game, he wears
eye-black stickers across his cheeks
featuring bible scripture from the
New Testament Book of Timothy.
The Tebow turtlehas those same
stickers painted on his leathery
face
One ofd the most cleer details
of the sculpture is the tail that pro-
trudes fromthe turtle's she. It looks
just like that of a real aigator.
Using fiberglass and polysty-
rene foam, Mr Rose fashioned the
helmet, football, the gator tail and
other details. After each addition,
there was lots ofprimingand sand-
ing Since he was working on a much
abbreviated time frame, the busy
craftsman/armist spent hours ach
ening on the sculpture after his
regularjob.
"I cant even begin to describe
what the working conditions were
like," said Mr. Rose, who construct-
ed the additions for the statue inhis
barn whichdoubles as a workshop.


"Everybodyknows wehave mos-
quitoes in Baker County the size of
elephants. Ifthat wasn'tbad enough,
the yellow flies hatched while the
sculpmrwasnprogre"
As he worked, Mr. Rose told how
he litraly held a paint brush in one
handand a fly swatterin the other.
"For every six I killed, 12 more
tooktheirplace. Iwasbittenso many
times my hands were swollen twice
their normal siz."
He discovered that yellow flies go
to bed at about 8 30 pm.
"I started noticing that every
night at the same time, those things
all just suddenly disappeared, so I
started waiting until then to start
working on the sculpture.
For Mr. Rose, accepting the task
of sculpting the Tebow turtle was
ooted in strong personal conic-
tions It gave him a format to chan-
nel his abundant creative energy
into somethingheis rmostpassionate
about art.
As dedicated parent to his five-
year-old son Julian who attends the
PreK Center, he also loves being
involved in any worthwhile project
for the enrichment and education of
children.

Soccer team's spirits not dampened by rain at final games
Parents opened umbrellas and didn't even flinch as rain poured down during the final game of the YMCA under eight soccer league May 24. The two Under Eight teams
pictured in the photo were coached by Melissa Pelfrey and James Beaie. Throughout the season, games took place in almost any weather leading to the league's unof-
ficial motto "unless there's lightning, we're playing." "You should have seen the older kids," said Y director Jim Bouldin. "They came by the pool after the game and they
were completely covered in mud. They looked like they'd had a great time"

FAT LADY
ROBERT GERARD
If you are a Wildcat football fan,
you have to wait a little longer to see
the 2009 editionof the squad. With
rain looming in the distance and
the chance that high school gradu-

Saturday night, Coach Bobby Johns
decided to can the spring jamboree
gameMay 23
Graduation went as planned Fri-
day but it was probably a good idea
anyway. Having helped to set up the
graduation, I know first hand how
soggy it was on the field. They could
have played in the bad weather, but
it would have realy chewed up the
field
I guess well have to wait until the
Kickoff Classic against West Nassau
