As job losses continue to
mount in Baker County, more
and more residents are turn
ing to public assistance to feed
theirfamilihes.
Unemployment here has
more than doubled since De-
cember 2007 when the jobless
rate was only 4+3 percent.
Last May, local unemploy-
ment stood at 10.3 percent,

certainly increased alongside
Florida and the nation since
then.
Statewidejoblessness roseto
10.2 percent in June, the elev
enth highest in the country.
Unemployment nation
ally climbed to 9.5 percent last
month, which equated to the
loss of about 467,ooo more
jobs, and tempered optimism


With job loss steadily increasing in Baker County,
so are the number of families on food stamps.

Abandoned dogs

Dear Editor:



Friday. People were seen with the puppies earlier Friday morning on
SR 121; they had a sign and were trying to give them away.
I suppose the puppies they couldn't give away were then just thrown
away.
To get to the spot where they abandoned the animals, these people
hadto pass Baker County Animal Control on Steel Bridge. I guess it was
more convenient to drive 212 more miles to put them out and take a
chance they wouldn't get hit by cars, starve or have a heat stroke.

If you don'twant puppies, have your dog spayed or at least take your
unwanted pets to animal control so theyget half a chance to get placed
ma home where they can be cared for.

Co missioner Gordon Crews
said he wanted to see new trees
planted after the thinning took
place in accordance with the For

to the volatility of timber prices.

He also recommended the
county hire a forestry consultant

Riverfront property
The county's nine acres west
of SR 121 on the Georgia side
of the St. Mary's River will be
advertised for sale to the high-
est bidder in accordance with
the commission's decision this
week.
The uninsurable, litter prone
and non developable parcel has

The board had considered
selling or leasing the property,
which costs the county about
$3oo annuallyin Charlton Coun-
ty property taxes, and sought an
appraisal to determine its value.
Mr. Cone was less than pleased
with the response.



The lack of sales of compa
rable properties left appraiser
James M. Smith with little mar-
ket information.
Only one of three properties
examined was also riverfront
land in the same market area as
the county owned acreage


Timber on St. Mary's Shoals Park.


The low appraisal was also
attributed to the land's location
in a flood one and its unsafe ac
cess from SR 121. A steep decline
leads offthe highway, which also
inhibits visibility when pulling
back onto the road.
Mr. Cone said a local non prof

In other business
The board approved buying
a roughly $5oo scanner for the
building department to store
contractor credentials digitally,
eliminating the need for physical
storage space.
Mr. Cone said money was
available in the department's
budget for the purchase thanks
to about $1400 that went un-
spent from $17,oo000 earmarked
for a new truck bought earlier

the county, if wehadthe money,"
he said in reference to paperless

His request for a temporary
(one year) permit to do so was
denied by the Land Planning
Agency (LPA) in a 3 2 vote last
month.


The appeal had been moved
from July 20 to July 30, but Mr.
McCullough said he would be

the commission.
The board set a tentative date

by Deputy Tracie Benton to the


Glen St. Mary Citgo off SR 125
south, and two other occupants,
Amber Davis, 22, and Carl Rho-
den, 26, said they witnessed Mr.
Irish kicking the door. They re-
fused to sign written statements,
however.
The driver of the vehicle, 24
year-old James Davis of Glen,
was arrested at the Citgo for
dnving on a license suspended
five times and battery of a store
patron.
Someone tossed rocks from
a nearby railroad bed through a
window at the residence of Dana

Filling the Boot for MDA
Baker County Fire Chief Richard Dolan collects a donation from Orange Park resi-
dent Jerome Jackson as he exits the Macclenny Walmart parking lot the morning
of July 3 during the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) charity drive
known as the Fill the Boot campaign. Similar drives took place in Taylor and Glen
St. Mary and will occur again on July 18 and August 1, the next paydays for state
employees, said Mr. Dolan. Last year's campaign raised more than $1200. This
year's goal is $1500 or "anything to beat last year," said Chief Dolan. The July 18
and August 1 drives will also run from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm in front of Phantom
Fireworks, at Walmart and at the intersection of CR 125 and US 90 in Glen. Funds
raised by the Baker County Fire Department give the MDA the means to continue
providing direct services to North Florida children and adults with one of the 43
neuromuscular diseases covered by MDA.

Behind the scenes
Once he committed himself
to r 1 i 1 1

Including designing andbuilding
props, changing scenes, running
lights and sound.
"Working tech in our high
school plays was optional, but
I chose to do it. I wanted to be
marketable in mnany ways, not
just as an actor, he said.
He's hadfavonte roles over the
years such as playing Will Parker
in the musical Oklahoma He
also liked the challenge of acting
on stage with a mechanical giant
plant in Little Shop of Horrors
"T1-- -1--11---- -- 1---,---

"A lot of the time, it was just me
and this fake plant out there on
the stage alone."
He credits actor Will Smith's
performance in the movie I am
Legend as his inspiration to suc-


of that movie, it's just him on the
screen. Not once did I feel bored,"
he said. "I did my best to achieve
that same thing for the Baker
County audience. They had paid
to see the play. You didn't want
them losing interest."
The real show, as Mr. Or-
berg is quick to point out, often
takes place backstage or behind
the curtain away from the audi-
ence. No theatre production is
complete without at least one set
malfunction. He loves this un-
predictable, often zany aspect of
theatre and laughs as he recalls
what happened in last spring's
production of The Wizard ofOz.
"Part of the set started falling
overjust as the curtain was open
Ing. One of the guys backstage


had to dash out and grab it and
because the curtain was already
open he had to stand there and
hold it up through the entire first
act."
Dunng the run of Footloose,
Mr. Orberg had 30 seconds to
dash from one side of the stage to
the other whenthe curtain bnefly
closed. Another actor, Dylan Ge-
rard, also had to cross the stage
going in the opposite direction. It
was dark and they slammed into
each other.
Dylan ran right over me and

the curtain opened, but had to go
right back out again even though
my head was spinning," he said.

A frantic, rewarding year
Last school year was a busy,
busy one for the drama students
at Baker County High School.
They rehearsed and performed
Broadway On Baker!, Broad-
way for Kids! and The Wizard
ofOz.
Arsenic and Old Lace, their
performance piece for the Ar-
kansas festival, also had to be
prepared.
"I was always tired," said Mr.
Orberg. "But I loved every sec-
ond."
The budding professional
thespian has another ambi-
tion as well. He plays guitar and
writes songs and is currently
working with a recording studio
laying down tracts for a Chnstian
music CD. His dream ten years
from now is to be performing on
Broadwayandtohavehis albums
doing reallywell.
"My parents [John and Lisa]
have supported me completely
in my acting and music venture.
That challenges me to become
successful," he said. "I'dlike tobe
able towalk throughthe door one
day and say "Dad, you don't have
to work anymore. It's my turn to
take care of you."

Cat is top reading scorer
Incoming sophomore Dillon Jones was recognized by the Baker County
School Board the evening of July 6 for academic prowess including a per-
fect 4.0 grade point average and being the only student at Baker High
to capture a perfect score on the reading portion of the FCAT basic skills
test this spring. The son of Mike and Lisa Jones, Dillon, 15, played on the

able candidate" to enter into the rotation on the varsity next spring.
