Anunknown male suspect representing himself as a companyexec-
utive extorted $200 in cash from the Macclenny Taco Bell the evening
of July21.
The man identified himself as Jeffrey Montgomery, and told em-
ployee Elizabeth Hagen, 19, of Glen St. Mary she could avoid being
among employees scheduled to be fired the next morning if she placed
$ 200 in a bank bag and have another employee follow instructions on
where to leave the bag.

Macclenny for gas as he drove to Jacksonville to a drop off location
The youth did so, staying in cell phone contact with the alleged Mr.
Montgomery until he arrived at a location on Dunn Ave. on Jackson
ville's northside.
The caller told Ms. Hagen earlier that a worker at the Macclenny
store on South 6th "had insulted a very important person at the corpo-
rate office," according to the report by Deputy Jerald Peterson. Several
people were slated for finng the next morning as a result.
The drop-off ponmtwas behind a dumpster near the Executive Inn on
Dunn, which police later learned was the source of the phone used by
the caller to contact the store and later stay in touch with the youth to
give delivery instructions.
Deputy Peterson said the motel staff indicated all outgoing calls dis-
played the central number, andtheydid not retain room numbers from
which calls originate
Ms. Hagen became suspicious after the drop, and told police she
initiallybeheved the caller because he knew names of store employees
and seemed familiar with its operation. Manager Jennifer Fraser of
Macclenny summoned police after Ms. Hagen told her of the incident.

TOWN OF GLEN ST MARY


Glen cutting budget 14% Transportation law eased
1 JOELADDINGTON "Thisisbrandnewtall ofus," non-committed," said Mr. Pr


ulcnI des across board pa %


The Town of Glen St. Mary,
faced with declinng revenues in
key areas like interest income,
will slash its next fiscal budget
by about 14 percent including
payroll reductions of 5 percent.
Council members debated the
better part of an hour during the
regular monthly session on July
21 before agreeing unanimously
dunng a workshop to authonze
the tentative budget. It will un-
dergopublc hearings before final
adoption before October 1.
Mayor Juance Padgett sound-
ed the alarm last month when
she pointed out that Glen has
been dipping into cash reserves
to balance its operating budget.
She initially proposed a 10 per-
cent across the board pay cut for
herself and four other council
members, plus the town's three
employees.
Council members last week
were reluctant to trim down pay
to that extent, particularly for
the regular employees two in
streets and maintenance and the
third a town clerk and secretary.
"I've got no problem with 10
percent [for council members]
but'm concernedabouttheoth-
er employees," said Councilman
Perry Hays.
"I have the same concern,"
echoed Councilman Dickie
Foster, responding to Mayor
Padgett's statement that Tommy
Ott, the senior maintenance
worker, hadn't received a raise
[from $12 an hour] in four years.
T I t I, ,


"Idon't know ofany other way
to balance the budget," respond-
ed the mayor.
Ms. Padgett was ready with
another handout when Council-


also includesshcing donations to
other agencies in half, and eimi
nating two of them.
As proposed by the council,
total spending in fiscal 2010 will
drop from $220,895 to $190,243,
some 3.8 percent.
Salaries will account for
$33,745 of that, plus accompany
mg taxes and retirement down
from $35,520. Legal expenses
will be budgeted at $7000, down
from $8500oo and consulting fees
from $9125 to an even $1ooo.
Lower spending in consult-
ing is anticipated since Glen has
already fronted most of the grant
application process to expand
its water system. A decision on
whether the town will receive
funds is due later this year.
In addition, the donations
to the Council on Aging rwll be
$2000 instead of $4000; to the
Chamber of Commerce $1ooo
instead of $2000. Glen will
eliminate its $750 grant to the
Comprehensive Services agency
in Macclenny and $150 to Taber
Library.
Early in the workshop, Mayor
Padgett distributed a worksheet
showing how Glen's cash reserves
have dropped from $575,000 to

Interest income, both the re-


expected to fall from $21,500 to
$11,700 the coming year.
The town has tapped reserves
to balance both the budget at
the end of last year, and again
last month to the tune of nearly
$30,000. And cash on hand has
slumped from around $125,000
to about $30,000 since 200oo4.
Nearly $14,000 was pulled
from reserves to settle a lawsuit
by a commercial property owner
over excess utihty fees, and a re
fund to a second owner on fees
improperly paid.
According to the projected
revenue side next year, Glen St.
Mary will be looking at reduced
revenues in areas like gas and
sales taxes, electric franchise fees
and mobile home hcense fees.
In other business July21, state
Rep. Janet Adkms (R-Fernan-
dma) delivered a post-session
report srmldar to that alreadypre
sented to other local boards. The
high points: state revenues the
coming fiscal year will be about
the same or less, and Florida
needs to concentrate on strate-
ges for job growth.
V The council passed on first
reading an ordinance suspending
impact fees for the near future as
a means of stimulating residen-
tal and commercial growth. The
measure forgives $2750 of the
$4250o in fees -all butthe $1500oo
assessed for local schools.

NEWS EDITOR

As growth skidded to a vir-
tual standstill last year, state
transportation concurrency larws
requiring developers to fund im-
provements on local roadways,
instead of existing taxpayers, be-
came npe for an overhaul.
The result was sweeping new
growth management legisla-
tion, Senate Bill 360, which Gov.
Charlie Crist signed in June to
help spur a crippled real estate
market while maintaining local
control of transportation fund

is like a ball and chain around the
developer's neck that slows him
S i- 1 1 t- .
,t i n

More accurately, the legisla
tion allows many local govern-
ments to exempt developers
from transportation concurrency
regulations, and the City of Mac-
clennyis one of them.


due to the presence of more than
1000 people per square mile, that
can exercise theexemption.
"They made it, just barely,"
Mr. Preston said of Macclenny,
which shares the designation
iath cities as large as Tampa and
Tallahassee.
In 2005, when Florida was
still adding thousands of new
residents each day, the state
mandated with a different SB
36o that local governments pass
concurrency rules.
"The roads in Orlando, Miami
or Jacksonville are so congested
that concurrency gets to be too
burdensome ...," said Mr. Pres-
ton "ThereIs so many vehicles
coming and going from so many
different places, the developer
ends up throwing money at it
without necessarily fixing the
problems caused by the traffic
they're creating."
The exemptions not automat-
ic, and Macclenny officials wi1ll
have to actively repeal or amend
its transportation concurrency
ordinances, as they provides a
funding source for improvement
like paving, widening and build-
ing new roadways.
However, the city has no im-
mediate plans to exempt devel-
opers from costly transportation
mitigation, said Assistant City
Manager Roger Yarborough.
"With this economy, nobody's
doing anything to be looking to
be exempted," he said, adding
that city staff hasn't fully studied
the new growth legislation.


Deadlines pushed ack
Areas outside the city limits
in unincorporated Baker County
and the Town of Glen St. Mary
are less densely populated and
have to keep previously adopted
concurrency rules.
But SB 36o also extends dead-
lines in development agreements
by two years, which has direct
implications for the county, Mr.
Preston said.
Commitments made by de-
velopers for both the mstallation
of infrastructure like roads and
utilities and cash payments irll
be delayed on at least a handful
of previously approved projects,
most notably Cedar Creek north-
west of Glen St. Mary.
Its development agreement
calls for more than $65 million
worth of infrastructure improve-
ments and payments to the
county.
"Now there's no legal recourse
to collect for two years," said Mr.
Preston.
Management of Cedar Creek
changed hands this year and its
future remains uncertain.
Another part of the legisla
tion loosens requirements on
financial commitments to mple-
ment capital miprovement plans
(CIPs).
Previously, improvements
scheduledin the first two years of
five-year CIPs had to have com-
mitted funding sources, usually
an agreement binding the devel-
oper topayfor a project. Forproj-
ects set for the later three years
of the plan, funding sources only
have to be identified.
"Now the first two years are

need onlybe identified.
Standardizing development
transportation fees
The bill also called on the
Department of Community Af
fairs and Florida Department
of Transportation to investigate
replacing transportation con-
currency with something called
a mobility fee that developers
would pay based on the amount
of traffic they're projects are ex-
pected to generate.
The problem with transporta-
tion concurrency, explained Mr.
Preston, has been that manylocal
governments differ in how they
calculate how much the develop-
er should pay. Standardizing the
cost statewide using a mobility
fee schedule would allow devel-
opers to know from the start how
much they will have to pay.
The studyis due for submittal
to the legislature by December
1. It will address recommended
legislation as well as a plan for
implementation.
"It would increase fthe speed of
the process," the county's other
planner, Carolyn Bissonnette,
said of the new fee.

A dream followed

Baker native releases CD
A former Baker County resident now living in Nashville is launching a new
ten-song CD this week, all of which were co written and produced with her fa
their.

moving her "Follow Your Dreams" CD.
It's on an independent label, and Ms. Durham, who has been living in the
Nashville area eight years, says she and her dad James Manning of Macclenny
have about $12,000 invested m the project.
"We're proud of it; it's taken a lot of time and money," said Ms. Durham in
a telephone interview earlier this week. "In this town, your chances of making
it big are about a million to one and sometimes you have to choose the smaller
route to get noticed. We've got high hopes for this."
The then Ms. Manning, a 2000 graduate of Baker County High School, plied
the musical waters in north Florida before moving to Nashville. She booked
regular appearances at venues in Jacksonville and one at the Suwannee River
Jam and performed at numerous local events.
Since moving to Tennessee, one of several Baker County residents who have
done so hoping to break into the country music scene, Ms. Durham has been
making a living as a demo singer. That means she does vocals for songs that are
being shopped among the vanous producers headquartered in the Music City.
She is marned to David Durham, a Nashville police detective, and they have
a daughter Brylee, almost two.
She descnbes the new CD collection as "classic country." The tracks are re-
corded with union musicians who hear the melody then record the instrumen-
tal.

On some of the songs, the singer records her own backup vocals.

Wildcat varsity Football is just around the corner and if you want
a chance to see the Cats in style and from good seats, consider buying
season tickets.
Forfolks who had season tickets last year, they will go on sale in the
BCHS office on August 10-13 from 7:30 am to 5:oo pm and August 17-
21 from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. Any remaining tickets will go on sale to
the general public on August 24 at 8:30 am. They are $54 and include
six home games.
Here's a look at the upcoming football schedule.

2009 BCHS WILDCAT FOOTBALL SCHEDULE


This week is the absolutely
perfect time to go out to the Base-
ball Grounds and catch the Jack-
sonville Suns. The Suns are lead-
ing their division in the Southern
League and are in the midst of a
seven game winning streak.
They will be hosting a pair of
Alabama teams for the next week,
taking on the Birmingham Bar-
ons Wednesday through Friday
and then hosting the Huntsville
Stars from Saturday to Wednes
day before heading out on the
road.
The Suns are two games atop
the South Division and right on
their heels are the Barons, who
would like nothing more than
to snap the Suns' winning streak
and chip away at their lead.
Huntsville is three games back
in the North Division behind
first place Chattanooga and West
Tennessee.
