JOELADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR

A bout four months ago convicted sex offender Allen -
Bennett was set to be released fom prison. This
troubled County Commissioner Michael Cres
because Mr. Bennett's female victim, still under 12 years
old, hves across the street from the man's former home in li
Sanderson.







What evoked over the next few months was the
county's first sexual offender ordinance which the Baker

playgrounds or other places where children regularly con

1000 feet of such places. .
The 56registered sexual offenders now residingin Bak
er County will not be subject to the tighter restriction, nor
can they be penalized if a day care center or school opens e
up within 2500 feet of their home.
Rather, the ordinance will impact sexual offenders who
come to Baker County in the future or those who change -
their place of residence.

Q and A with Representative Janet Adkins


Fresh from her firstsix months in of-
fice as the Florida House representative
for District 12, Janet Adkins sat down
with The Pressthe aft ernoon of June 15
to reflect on her part in the battle over
privatzing Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital, her legislatve accomplishments
and a spra tins, how herfamily of our
handled her transon to o state office
and what she's doing now The follow-

did you ever have second thoughts
about running for office?
Janet Adkins: I wouldn't say that. I
think God puts you in certain places
at certain points in your life. He
opens doors for you, and expects
you to walk through them. I think
that this season, this is what I'm
supposed to do. I don't have any re
grets. It's incredible work.
BCP: What have you been up to
sincethe session ended?
JA: I have been on a break. I've been
going to the different towns giv
ing them legislative updates and
economic updates ... Basically go-
ing before the school boards and
county commissions in their domain
to communicate with them on the
state of the state. People ask me
howdoyou feel aboutthe state bud-
get. And my response is you need to
look at the state budget in light of
the state's economy If you look at
it in that light, then you understand


why we made some of the decisions
that we did. So you have to take it in
context.
BCP: Looking back on your first six
months in office, on a scale of one
to 10, how successful do you think
you've been?
JA: I think history will play itself out
and history will grade me. I will share
with you what the majority leader
on the closing days of session said to
me. He said, 'Janet your session was
golden, absolutely golden.' I said,
'I'm simply trying to go home with
what I came here with And he said,
'Janet, sometimes that's all you car
hope for' In this tough economy, I
think that was a very accurate
statement ... We actually
had some gains though i 1

Stimulus


bumpy at


local level,


but a plus


On Point

In Print
JOEL ADDINGTON
In hght of all the wrangling
about what was or wasn't teChoi


ing out its implementation.
For the last few months local
governments, non profits and
private companies have been
getting their ducks in a row to be
in the best possible position to
receive a shce of the trillions of
dollars most of us hope wil help
put the econC on the road to
rceoveiy.
But the State of Florida, short
of using the cash to balance its
budget in an era of ever falling
revenues and increasing ex-
penses, doesn't seem to have a
firm grasp on how it as the Co
termediarybetween the feds and
us wiff dole oot the stinmfus
funds.
As evidenced by this week's
story about the impact of the
stimnous package on the county's
housing assistance program
SHIP (seepage 5), there remain
some kinks to be worked out.
Just to comprehend the im-
pact to this one program was an
exercise iconcentration, and for
f ocaf ofcias one in frus
traction.
Though the stimulus will give
those who haven't owned a home
in at least three years $8ooo to
live the Amencan dream, it also

be your tax dollars) to the tune

its way back into the bank next
year.
But you also have to consider
the other stimulus money that's
coming to Baker County $800
ooo at last count for CR 125
north of Glen St. Mary. Another
$400oo,ooo000 is coming for law en-
forceenet and the talks been
about putting toward rehabihtat-
ing the now old jail behind the
courthouse.
Considering the number oflo-
cal residents in the construction
business, whether its plumbing,
electrical or laying block or as
phalt, this money will put folks
here to work. And soon.

full process. We were just going
to run out of time. But what we
needed to do was get that lan-
guage, those 11 words included
in another bill. So the essence of
house bill 819 was passed in the
closing days of session What we
can now do -this effects Baker,
Bradford, Union, Nassau it ex
pands SCOP Before it could only
resurface roads, now it can pave
dirt roads, repair county bridges
and deal with drainage issues.
We got that passed on the last
day of session.
JA: Another win we had was
with Medicaid reform. We did
a health care forum in Nassau
County a week before we went
into session. We had a Medicaid
reform bill we had filed and we
knew we would end up making
amendments to it so we filed it
as a place holder and then we
were trying to gather commu-
nity input on the problems and
challenges of Medicaid reform. It
affects Duval, Nassau, Baker and
Clay. So four of the six counties
[in District 12] are impacted by
Medicaid reform. And what vir-
tually allthe health departments
in District 12 shared with me,
and some of the people in the
hospitals, whattheytold me was
that under Medicaid reform, the
state law had set up a three-year
window whereby they would
continue what's called fee for
service. But in September 2009,
that fee forservice was to tran
sition into something called
capitated rates. What the health
departments, hospitals and doc-
torstold us, and provider service
networks, they said, 'Janet, when
we're forced to go to capitated
rates in September 2o009, it's go
ingto be absolutely devastating.
BCP: How is that [capitated rate]
defined?
JA: The whole premise behind
Medicaid reform was to drive
down Medicaid costs. So you've
got this pool of Medicaid recipi-
ents. Forthreeyearsthe idea was
to gather historical data to define
the numbers thatwould go into a
formula that would then be used
in what's called capitated rates,
OK. But forthe first three years,
they were going to be paid like
everybody else in the state, fee
for service. After gathering the
statistical data, they would go
to capitated rates, which meant


that it would put a cap on the
amount of moneythey would re-
ceive based on historical usage.
BCP: It adjusts for inflation
doesn't it?
JA: I don't know how the details
of the formula work. What I
know is that the health depart-
ments were very concerned.
I had Baker, Clay, Nassau and
Duval, all singing the same song
about how Medicaid reform had
hurt the counties. I'll give you
an example. Duval was the first
county to go under Medicaid
reform, and then Baker, Clay and
Nassau went in a year later ...It
has put us in a different classify
cation if you will, and I believe in
this economy at a bit of a disad-
vantage. We have felt the pinch
of Medicaid reform where as
the rest of the state hasn't. You
take that forward to September
2009, and you go to capitated
rates, we're feeling even more
of a pinch than what the rest of
the state is. It's like death by a
couple hundred cuts. Sowhat we
were able to do is get language
inserted that extends the transi-
tion pointto capitated rates from
September 2009 to September
2011.
BCP: Isn't that just going to fore-
stall the inevitable?
JA: Maybe, but here's the issue.
Medicaid reform is a five year
pilot. After the first three years,
they said you're going to capi
tated rates. But the state legisla
ture has not made the decision
to expand Medicaid reform to
the rest of the state. That policy
decision has not been made.
When I pressed the issue, they
would say, 'We're not expanding
Medicaid reform this year' Well,
if you're not expanding it, don't
penalize my district when you're
not willing to make that policy
jump. I don't know if Medicaid
reform will be expanded, but in
twoyears, that decision will have
to be made. At that point, that
pilot is over and something has
to be done.
BCP: So the hospital, SCOP and
Medicaid reform are probably
the three issues or accomplish-
ments you're most proud of
from this session?
JA: I would say so, yeah.
BCP: How about any goals that
didn't get reached or that you
want to hit again next session?


JA: There was one big one that
we could not, could not, get
moving this session. It was the
reduction of business regula-
tions on small businesses. We
will continue to work that issue
and try that again next session.
We'll do that because, you look
at this economy, the key is jobs.
The key to Florida's economic
recovery is jobs. And so, I believe
Florida has to look at ways to
reduce regulation on business,
specifically small business, so we
can get in a posture of attracting
new jobs and new companies to
Florida. We've got to diversify
oureconomy.
BCP: Have you targeted any
specific sectors or regulations or
agencies like FDEP or anything
like that?
JA: What I hope is that this will
be across the board. What we
are going to be doing over the
next six months, is working with
committee staff and with a small
business advisory workgroup
to get this across the board I
mean DEP can sometimes pose
big barriersto businessand busi-
nesses relocating to Florida.
BCP: From the family side, what
kind of adjustment was it for
them and for yourself, working
in Tallahassee, doing the com-
muting, etc.?
JA: The commute is actually
much betterthan I anticipated. If
you can imagine, it's only three
hours and two minutes to Talla
hassee, and you talk to other law
makers throughout Florida and
they will drive from Tallahassee
to Jacksonville so they can catch
an airplane to Miami. When you
think about what they're going
through, three hours and two
minutes is a breeze. You turn on
the radio, put music on, and the
nextthingyou know you're pull
ing in the driveway. So it's not
that difficult. The family thing
wenta loteasierthan I expected.


Now the last three weeks were
challenging. What we did was
just take it one week at a time.
That's all you could do ...The cal-
endar comes out on Thursday or
Friday, so you didn't know until
the Thursday or Friday before
when you needed to be there.
We just tookthe stance as a fam-
ily to take it one week at a time
and that worked. When you're
committed, you find a way. And
I'm happyto say my kids still did
good in school.
BCP: What do you find to be the
best part of your job?
JA: The best part is being out in
the community. It's the great
honor of being ableto represent
the people back home. That re-
ally came home loud and clear
on the NEFSH [Northeast Florida
State Hospital] issue.
We fought that battle three
times and won three times. First
we fought it in the special ses-
sion. When we determined it
was outside the call of session,
and they tried to sneak it in, we
called the rules on them, literally.
I called the rules chairman on his
cell. His response was, 'Janet, I
trust Marcello [Llorente].' And I
thought this is not good because
he's calling him by hisfirst name.
He says, 'But I'll look into it' I
said, 'OK Mr Chairman. I'd ap-
preciate it if you would.' Then
we won itatthe committee level
[during the regular session]
It had shown up again. I got the
call Thursday, April 1, April Fools
Day, that Chairman Zapata had
taken [privatization language]
out. Fortunately I was still near
Tallahassee the next day, Friday
April 2, when I got the phone call
[that privatization was put back
in overnight].
BCP: What was your reaction to
that phone call?
JA: Utterdisbelief. It was, 'You're
kidding.' Then I got a little bit
angry. So I left the meeting I
was in and headed back to the
capitol ... I headed back to my
office to file amendments and I
learned that five o'clockwasthe


deadline tofile amendments. So
I began to put together as many
amendments as I could think of.
I puttogetherfoun Atten till five
I was on the second floor of the
capitol filing amendments when
my cell phone rang. It was the
speaker I'd been on the phone
so much that the call got dis-
connected because my battery
died, but not until after I'd told
him, 'Mr Speaker I want you to
know I'm on the second floor fil-
ing amendments, I understand
the deadline is five o'clock. I will
make the deadline and would
like to talk to you about them.
And I understand I can withdraw
them if we can reach an agree-
ment, but I want you to know
from me, not through the grape
vine, I'm filing these amend-
ments'And I said, 'In fact, if your
still at the capitol, I'll come talk
to you now.' No, no, no. I'm on
my way home. I'm like,'OK. We'll
talk on Monday' The next Mon-
day I find myself in his office ex-
plaining my amendments. What
I learned was that when you file
amendments, other people can
file amendments to youramend-
ment. That's what happened. Of
my four amendments, only one
of them eliminated the privatiza-
tion language. So what they did,
was have somebody else file an
amendment to my amendment
that basically put the privatiza-
tion language backing.
BCP: At that late hour?
JA: No, there's a different dead
line for filing amendments to
amendments. By the time I got
back in on Monday they'd filed
the amendment to my amend
ment. What I didn't know at that
time wasthat I could file a substi-
tute amendment to her amend
ment. I could have ended her
amendment to my amendment,
There's four layers. There's the
amendment, the amendment


to the amendment, there's a
substitute amendment and then
an amendment to the substi-
tute amendment. OK. Once you
get those four layers of amend-
ments, it stops. But I didn't know
thattrickyet.
BCP: They were probably count-
ing on you not knowing.
JA: Exactly ... There's a lot to
learn. So we knew we didn't have
the votes at the council level to
win. So we withdrewthe amend-
ments, because you always want
to preserve your position. You
don't want to force a vote and
force the council or house to
take a position, and not preserve
your position forthe next round.
After the council level, we still
had the house floor level, which
is where we ended up defeating
it in special session. At the house
floor, we were close when I tried
to count votes. So we withdrew
again. We presented again, but
we didn't force the vote and
force the house to take that po
sition, because it would've com-
promised our position at confer
ence.
BCP: What's the toughest part
about being a house represen-
tative?
JA: There's so much to learn.
That's the toughest part. Fortu
nately, I came in with 10 years
of experience atthe local level. I
can't begin to imagine those who
would go in without any experi-
ence or understanding of educa-
tion or health care or whatever
BCP: Is there anything else you'd
like to say to the people of Baker
County?
JA: It's Just an honorto represent
Baker County. I've got a world
of respect for the Baker County
community. The community
spirit I personally witnessed, the
community caring, was absolute-
ly incredible.

Steven Massicotte said he
returned to the North Boule-
vard address about 6:15 pm
and discovered his laptop, a
Playstation 3, X-Box and oth-
er property missing. Joseph
Cannon, who also lives there,
told Deputy Matt Sigers none
of his belongings appeared to
be stolen, but someone had
rifled through them.
In other reports, lap top
computers were reported
taken from a business north of
Macclenny and a residence in
Glen St. Mary the past week.
One of them, valued at
nearly $1ooo, was missing
from a desk at Earthworks of
Northeast Florida on SR 121

work the morning of June 12.
Paula Brittain told Deputy
Pete Quinley nothing else in
the office appeared to be dis-
turbed, and all the doors were
locked when she arrived for
work.
In a second case, a 23-year-
old male was named as a sus-
pect in the disappearance of a
lap top worth $300 from the
residence of Ashley Fiano on
Clinton Ave. in Glen.
The owner told Deputy
Tony Norman the computer
was likely taken in a backpack
by the suspect, who lives off
Woodlawn Rd. and had been
at the residence on June 11.
An initial attempt to contact
him was unsuccessful.
A lawn mower valued at
$16oo was taken from the
property of Johnny Sand-
ers off Black Jack Rd. near


rounded by a fence, and had
an unlocked entrance gate.
Mr. Sanders told Deputy
Bill Starling that four other
mowers were on the property

ued at $15o declined to press
charges against a 17-year-old
male who allegedly took it

The Baker County Rotary Club took
a peek into the lives of rural Cambodi-
ans and what Rotary International is
doing to rejuvenate the country dur-
ing a presentation from the Gainesville
chapter's Elena Casson on June 3.
Ms. Casson has visited Cambodia
several times in conjunction with Ro-
tary International's support of Sustain-
able Cambodia, an international non-
profit organization working to help the

irrigation systems and schools.
The group also runs health, nutrition
and medical programs.
Rotary International's role is to
provide funding for clean water and
irrigation projects. In 2008, the Baker
County Rotary helped fund a clean wa-
ter well in a rural village. The club has
also donated $500 toward another well
to be constructed in the near future.

conditions When the drought comes

Dunng the drought season, villagers
may hike miles every day to a source of
water, often muddy and unclean. Even
if a school is available, children may not at
tendbecause of thehours theyspend carrying
water home to their families.
As Ms. Casson explained, because of the
climate, most rural Cambodians can only
maintain a subsistence level existence, plant
ing nee dunng the wet season and facing star-
vation during the dry.
A village well changes all that, with fresh
drinking water and water for irrigation so
crops can be grown year round. When not
faced with drought and potential starvation,
villagers have time and energy to devote to
other pursuits such as vocational and adult
literacy training and projects for the better-

working to establish in a country whose in

the communist Khmer Rouge government
duringthe late 1970s.
Members of the Baker County Rotary Club
were aware, as most people are, that Cambo
dia suffered greatly dunng the Vietnam War,
but had little idea of the harmful practices

being felt decades later. Ms. Casson shared
information about some of those practices.

before The DaVinci Code became an international phenomenon and

plot is a little convoluted. But here's a quick synopsis.
A pope has died under unusual and suspicious circumstances. The
College of Cardinals is going into seclusion to pick a new one. Mean-
while the Swiss Guard, the Vatican police, call Langdon in because a
murder has been committed. The murderer has stolen a particle of
anti-matter that is as powerful as an atomic bomb and branded the
word Illuminati on his victim.
The Illuminati was a secret society of scientists who allegedly con-
spired against the Catholic Church and were wiped out. The Illuminati
took responsibility for the killing and also captured four of the leading
candidates for pope.
Langdon is briefed by the Camerlengo, the pope's secretary (Ewan
McGregor) and with the help of scientist Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer)
whose anti-matter was stolen, Langdon has to track down the anti-
matter and save the cardinals. Langdon researches the Illuminati and

My brother, my friend
It's been a while since you've
been gone. Things just haven't

not seem real and who us there
to blame? I miss you so much;
I have so much to say, every
time I go somewhere they al-
ways mention your name. Such
a good person, a caring man, a
son, a little brother and a great
frend. You are in a much better
place now.All ofyour problems
have gone away. But remember
we will meet on the other side
one weet day.

meaningful to me as we under

of Tommy and Nancy Johnson,
