fire tax to

increase

at $3 per

residence
When tax bills go out in
November, property owners
outside of Macclenny will see a

tion taken by the Baker County
CommissionJune 2.
The special assessment for
fire protection services began
at $25 annually for single fam-
ily homes in 1988 as a means of
dm r,-tes, said
county attorney Terry Brown.
With the drop in the cost of
insurance, he said most prop

sessment was increased a few
years later to $27.50 for resit-
dential properties and will now
be $30.50.
Commercial structures will
see a similar $3 increase. For
instance, those measuring less
than 5000 square feet will go
from $110o to $113.
The assessment helps fund
the almost entirely volunteer
fire department with Fire Chief
Richard Dolan as the only full
time firefighter employedbythe
county. But the revenue gener-
ated accounts for less than half
the department's budget, said
CountyManager Joe Cone.
The remainder is covered by
money from the county's gen
eral fund, which is fed by other
property taxes, gas taxes and
sales taxes.
Commissioners contend the
fire assessment increase was
warranted because the rate had
remained the same for roughly
two decades while the cost for
equipment, fuel and training
has increased exponentially.
A proposal to put a similar
assessment onpropertytax bills
for emergency medical services
(EMS) was favored by only two
on the board Alex Robinson
and Gordon Crews however
Both said the annual tax,
proposed at $20 per residence
and $50 for businesses under
5000 square feet, was small

Some would say that it needs to be killed
and that education has to change to prepare
students for life in the 21st Century. But I
can't see that the FCAT is the answer. It may
be the linking the evolutionary chain that leads
to something better, but itis far from the solu-
tion.
One of the problems is that students in
grades taking the test are absolutely convinced
that school is overwhen the testis over. I can't
tell you how many times students look at my
wife in amazement after the FCAT is finished

With two and a half months to go it's hard to
convince kids that school is still in operation.
That s what comes with the state putting
the emphasis upon a single method of as
sessment It puts so much pressure on every
aspect of school life that children have been
known to throwup before the test or look atit
and put their heads down on the desk. Teach-
ers and administrators bite their nails to the
quick on the week the scores come out.
I'm all for accountability, but lets base it
upon more measurable standards. Test each
student the week they enter their English,
math or science class and then test them on
the week they leave. Then determine their
amount of progress within that class. If they
haven't received adequate yearly progress,
remediate them. Don't rely upon a testing
instrument that doesn't take into account the

this week he 1wll file a motion

'off-siters'
The Macclenny City Com-
mission is set to consider a new
proposal for further regulating
temporary business sales like
those at local credit unions dur-
ing a regular meeting June 9.
The measure limits local bus-
nesses to hosting two auto sales
per year and three "other" tem-
porary sales for non-auto mer-
chandise like tractors or boats.
Vacant properties would be
restricted to hosting only one off
site sale per year, however.
The latest changes would also
lower the $300 per day permit
fee for local businesses to $25 per
day and include definitions to dif
ferentiate between hawkers, ped-
dlers and temporary businesses.
The city already regulates off
site sales by restricting out-of
town dealers to once such event
each year.
City officials first proposed
more than three months ago to
regulate such sales by limiting
any given location to one sale per
year per category of merchan-
dise.
But local credit unions as well
as most members of the Cham-
her of Commerce voiced opposi-
tion to that plan and city officials

dissolution of the Church of God

The matter was brought be-
fore the LPA's governing board

the landwhen the Baxter branch

The LPA's four board mem-
bers (Jack Baker was absent from
the meeting) were divided on the
rezomng request.
Chairman C.J. Thompson
said he'd favor granting a special
exception for the property -es-
sentially making it eligible for

instead of rezomningitto a den

Rather than take his chances
with a formal vote, the attorney
opted to withdraw the rezon


ing request. Mr. Fish has since
submitted an special exception
application, which will likely be
heard at the LPA's next meeting.
In other business, the board
considered three other special
exception requests, taking the
following actions:
Denied a request from
Fred and Carolyn Sanford to
keep a donkey, turkeys and goats
on their George Hodges Road
property about a mile west of SR
121.
Two residents from the neigh-
borhood spoke in opposition to
the exception, namely due to
the smell it would perpetuate.
The matter is set to go before
the county's Code Enforcement
Board next week.
The applicants did not attend
the meeting.
Granted a request from
Frank and Linda Cohenour for
familylot to be divided off a nine
acre parcel on the north side of
Bobby Sapp Road between CR
121 and CR 125.
The couple lives on a con
tiguous one acre lot and is not
eligible for the family lot provin
sion because the nine acre tract
rsn't homesteaded and the width
of the proposed family lot was
30 feet below the minimum re-
quired.

tends to use the additional lot for
a new home for Mr. Kennedy's
parents.
"I'm fully retired," said the
grandfather, Steve Kennedy, the
former chief administrator at
Northeast Florida State Hospital.
"My only job is grandkids."
The board limited the appli-
cants to no more than one family
lot, however.

In Loving Memory
of
Jessalyn M. Combs
1/22/88 6/03/07

Our daughter, our friend,
our angel...
Ivo years ago today, the 3rd
day of June, 2007, our daugh-
ter Jessalyn was invited minto
Heaven
There were no heedfiul warn
ings, noformalminvritations sent,
just a call from a doctor and a
final glimpse of afacefilled with
angelc sweet content.
She never got a chance to buy
a dress or primp min font of the
mrror. But an Angel would be
sent as her time grew nearer.
He asked her was she ready
to meet her Lord and Saviour?
She tearfully nodded yes, and
arrived min Heaven just a few
breaths later.
We miss our little girl and
the beauty she bestowed; now a
cross is planted min her memory
beside herfinal traveled road.
It took a while, but we came
to understand that somewhere
in Heaven there is a reunion be
ing planned Our broken hearts
will be mended and our tears
will be forever gone. And then
and only then, we too will have
been invited home.
MING You, BY i,
MA, D-, D-DY & WAN

In Loving Memory
of
Tony Hall
9/23/80 6/05/99

Special memories
With a mi schievous smile and
twinkling eyes he had a way of
touching lives. You couldn't help
but love the country kind of talk
and how he had the "I know I'm
fine" attitude in his walk. He
wa loved by so many, those e hs
life has touched, he will always
be remembered and missed
so very much. No matter how
long you knew him, you were
charmed by his ways. He usu
ally had a smile to give, even
when he had bad days. To some
he was a classmate, to others he
was their kin. To lots he was an
acquaintance, but to all he was
a friend. He had an easy going
spirit, and a heart full of love.
Im so thankful that he knew
our Heavenly Father above.
I'm glad that he made Jesus his
Lord and his King. I know when
he entered the gates, all the an-
gels began to sing. Though he's
no longer with us, hs memory
will forever remain. And may
the loss of his life show others
what there's to gain. When you
live a life for Jesus, you'll be
rewarded up above. And you'll
spend eternity with the Savior,
surrounded by His love. I imag
me that today he's kneeling
before God's throne, because
of the choce he made to clanm
Jesus as his own. And for those
that know the Saior in that
personal kind of way, theyII see
hmn again in Heaven one day.
Although the pain is hard to
get through, try to see the light,
because there someone up i
Heaven smiling down on you
tonight.
