Eighteen-year veteran coun-
ty commissioner Alex Robinson
drew an opponent in his bid for
a sixth term last week when
roofing contractor Oliver "Jim-
my" Anderson qualified by fee
to run for the District 2 seat.
Eleven candidates in all were
vying for two county commis-
sion seats and two school board
seats as qualifying closed June
18.
Mr. Robinson, a Democrat,
owns P&R Electric in Mac-
clenny, while Mr. Anderson, a
Republican of Glen St. Mary,
co-owns a number of different
roofing companies, according
to elections office records.
He listed A&R Truss Compa-
ny, Anderson Qualified Roofing
and A&R Enterprises as income
sources, though none showed
dollar amounts.
Mr. Anderson's net worth is
$490,675, or about $176,000
more than his opponent's, the
records show.
The roster of men running
for the District 4 county com-
mission seat now held by Mike
Griffis is much more crowded.
The one-term commissioner
announced in mid-May his in-
tention not to seek re-election.
Republicans Adam Giddens
and Jeana Duval will face off in
the primary August 24, along
with Democrats Michael Con-
ner, Chris Rhoden and Donnie
Starling.
The winners of each race will
meet in the general election in
November.
Mr. Giddens, of Macclenny,
works for Giddens Security
Corp. of Jacksonville while
Mrs. Duval, also of Macclenny,
teaches second grade at West-
side Elementary.
Mr. Conner is the building
maintenance manager at First
Baptist in Glen St. Mary and
lives in the Taylor area. Mr.
Rhoden of Glen St. Mary runs
a land clearing business and
Mr. Starling, also of Glen, owns
Donnie's Nursery Inc. in Mac-
clenny.
The winner from each prima-
ry election will have nine weeks
to campaign before the gen-
eral election November 2. That
ballot will also determine the
winner of the District 2 county
commission race between Mr.
Robinson and Mr. Anderson.

'Stoned' trio arrested for child neglect


Late-night shoplifting with three children at Walmart


Three adults who police said were so
high on drugs they were barely able to
speak or stand were charged with child
neglect after they were found in the
Walmart Supercenter late on June 18
with three young children.
One of the suspects, Lois Johnston,
42, of St. George, GA was also charged
with shoplifting $280 worth of merchan-
dise. Ms. Johnston was observed by Lt.
Scotty Rhoden removing price tags from
items, then stuffing them under a cover
in a shopping cart a cover that one of
the children was lying upon.
Another suspect, Jason Bassile, 26, of
Macclenny was also charged with posses-
sion of prescription medication.
Deputy Chris Walker said police were
called to the store about 11:oo to inves-
tigate an intoxicated person inside an


entrance.
They
found Mr.
Bassile
seated
next to a
shopping
cart con-
taining
one of the
children,
who was
asleep.
His Jason Bassile Lois
speech
was slurred and he was not able to keep
his eyes open, said the officer, but said his
wife Amanda Moore and Ms. Johnston
were in the store shopping.
Lt. Rhoden shortly after saw Ms. John-

Walker
stayed
with Mr.
Bassile,
who tele-
phoned
Ms.
Moore to
tell her "...


watch out, the cops are here."
He then tossed a small container into a
nearby trash can, and police found that it
contained a single dose of the anti-anxi-
ety drug Xanax.


Ms. Johnston was confronted when
she attempted to leave the store, and the
shoplifted merchandise was seized from
her purse and under the blanket.
Ms. Moore was brought to the front of
the store, and Deputy Walker said she ad-
mitted to taking drugs for back pain. He
also observed she was drooling and hav-
ing trouble speaking. The three children,
four and five years old, are hers, and she
had no explanation as to why she left two
of them in the care of the others consider-
ing their condition.
At one point, Ms. Moore fell forward
from a bench with a child in her lap.
The children were released to the cus-
tody of a grandmother.

Zoning for prison re-entry site approved


New jobs win out

For the third time in two
months, Kenneth and Sharon
Moore pleaded with county
officials to oppose plans for
an prison inmate re-entry
facility near their Olustee
homestead, only to have the
promise of new jobs over-
shadow their concerns June


The Baker County Com-
mission voted 4-1 that eve-
ning to rezone about 20
acres of a roughly 64-acre
tract owned by the Florida
Department of Corrections
[FDOC] from agriculture to

The new zoning classifi-
cation will accommodate the

Thirteen years ago Scott and De-
nise Francis drove west out of Jack-
sonville looking for a place to estab-
lish a new business.
Twinn Bridges Herb Farm is the
result of that adventure. Today, the
farm supplies about 35 restaurants in
Jacksonville with organically grown,
pesticide free herbs, produce and
eggs.
In addition to their restaurant
clients, Twinn Bridges sells its farm-
raised products as well as specialty
cheeses, olive oils and a line of home-
made soaps each Saturday at The


Beaches' Green Market in Neptune
Beach.
As might be expected, a day on the
farm starts early and employees begin
work at 7:30 am.
When The Press arrived at the
farm June 21, employee Dana Ganey
of St. George was already busy in the
green house picking tomatoes. Josh
Howard of Macclenny was loading up
boxes of squash starters to be trans-
planted in the fields out back.
Twinn Bridges grows a variety
of herbs including basil, rosemary,
oregano, tarragon, sage, chives,
thyme and lavender. Among the
herbs, large buckets on the property
contain Kaffir Lime trees, harvested
for their aromatic leaves used in Thai


and Cambodian cooking.
Heirloom tomatoes, raised in the
greenhouses year-round, hang in
long rows from arbor structures to
make picking easy and produce vari-
eties like purple Cherokee, sun gold,
max wild cherry and the unusual
black krim.
"Black krims come from a small
island off the coast of Russia and
until the Berlin Wall came down,
there were varieties from that area
we never saw here in the states," said
Mr. Francis as he walked along one
of the rows. "Since then, a lot of seed
exchanges have taken place. Now the
Russians are growing our better boys

Daniels, 55, of Tall Pine Rd. north
of Macclenny.
Ms. Daniels was found lying
face down in her yard late that
afternoon and pronounced dead
at Fraser Hospital. The attending
physician told Deputy John Har-
din the woman's body tempera-
ture was 108 when she died.
The report notes that Kevin
Wilkerson, 33, of Macclenny was
the last person to see Ms. Daniels
alive and told police she "...did

appeared to possibly be under
the influence of medication or
other controlled substancess]"

"We've had a lot of peace out
there, and never had any prob-
lems. But we never had this,"
Mrs. Moore said in reference to
the proposed facility. "I'm not
against rehabilitating anybody,
but it's going to be next to me ...
I know God said, 'Thou shall not
kill,' but I'd probably try to take
out his legs."
FDOC's rezoning request came
before the board last month,
when commissioners decided
to table the matter so the state
could look into a possible land
swap that would move the proj-
ect to another location and away
from the Moore's property.
The county's Land Planning
Agency considered the request in
April, recommending denial with
a 3-2 vote.
"We've looked at every nook
and cranny in Baker County,"
Secretary McNeil said this week.
"We have not been able to find an
alternative [site] ... Our prom-
ise is to work with the property
owner next to us to mitigate any
concerns they may have."
He suggested that a berm or
concrete barrier could be erected
between the two parcels, shield-
ing the Moore's property from
nuisance noise. The secretary
said the department would also
be willing to work on plans to
mitigate lighting from the new
facility.
The re-entry prison is expect-
ed to create 150 to 200 correc-
tions jobs with starting salaries
of about $33,000.
Commissioner Mike Griffis
cast the dissenting vote against
the rezoning.
"You say the state has exhaust-
ed all options, but I'm not sure,"
he commented shortly before the
vote.
Despite the Moore's concerns,
other board members agreed
that having the re-entry facility
in Baker County was in the best
interest of the county as a whole.
FDOC is expected to break
ground in the fall and begin op-
erating the facility in late 2011.
In other business this week:
The board approved the hir-
ing of Dr. Michael A. Davis, an
assistant professor at Texas A&M
University, to the position of ag-
ricultural extension director, the
top post at the University of Flor-
ida's extension office (Ag Center)
on US 90 west of Macclenny.
Mr. Davis holds undergradu-
ate and doctorate degrees in
poultry science from Auburn
University and has been with
Texas A&M since 2005. He's ex-
pected to start in September.
Commissioners accepted a
timber harvesting bid from Calla-
han Timber Co. for the thinning
of trees at St. Mary's Shoals Park.
The harvesting of an estimated
25,000 tons could generate
about $400,000 in revenue for
park operations.
Board Chairman Alex Rob-
inson also announced that the

tation [FDOT] will likely transfer

over from Small County Road

children into a mosquito-infested
yard off 8th St. late around mid-
night on June 20.
He told Deputy Earl Lord he

Police were called to the
neighborhood about 11:30 the
previous evening by Diana Kipp,
20, of Macclenny, who said her
boyfriend was drunk and had


walked away from their residence
with the small children.
Several deputies fanned out in
the neighborhood to search for
them, and about an hour later
Deputy Lord located Mr. Ham-
ilton outside the home of Ms.
Kipp's parents where they had
been living.
He then noted multiple bite
marks on the arms and legs of
the children, and went to where
they had been sitting on several
milk crates in grass more than
knee-high.
The children were released to
the custody of Ms. Kipp's mother
since the girlfriend is allowed
only supervised visitation. She

The decline of Florida's springs


THE BACK

PORCH
Kelley Lannigan
My decision to move to Flor-
ida was based on a job offer, but
strongly motivated by memories
and experiences I had long car-
ried of the extraordinary natural
places I saw on previous visits.
Places like Silver Springs. See-
ing the springs when I was a child
made it seem that magic wasn't
an insubstantial fanciful human
notion, but a tangible reality that
existed in the earth.
Today, there is trouble in
paradise. The reality of the pres-
ent puts a different face on such
places. The silver sands and crys-
talline waters that thrilled pas-
sengers aboard Silver Springs'
famed glass bottomed boats have
dimmed.
The waters are growing in-
creasingly cloudy. Industrial
runoff flows directly into the
springs. Invasive weeds carpet
the formerly clear sandy tracts.
The limpkin, a wading bird, once
ubiquitous on the spring's banks
(and hunted to near extinction
before laws protected it) have
disappeared. The reason? The
spring's waters are no longer
hospitable to the freshwater snail
they depend on for food.
The activities of man, through
industry, development, agricul-
ture, landscaping and recreation,
have made tremendous demands
on the environment. People have
used their natural resources hard
and done relatively little and
often nothing to replace, man-


age or protect them.
Across the planet, the state of
the natural world is increasingly
exhibiting symptoms of sickness
and many of Florida's springs are
a prime example.
Last February, renowned na-
ture photographer John Moran
challenged the Florida Legisla-
ture regarding the woeful condi-
tion of many of the state's unique
freshwater springs.
From the steps of the capitol in
Tallahassee he spoke eloquently
about his passion for Florida's
springs and the critical need to
take action to protect them.


During his talk, astonishing
images taken by John over a
period of many years were dis-
played. The early images showed
cavernous expanses of startling
turquoise waters. Those images
changed dramatically as the time
line approached the present day,
showing areas of once pristine
waters now murky and choked
with algae, sludge and muck.
The video of that speech can be
viewed at www.johnmoranphoto.
com. Some of his commentary on
this matter is posted on the Web
site www.floridathinks.com.
Natural phenomenon like


Florida's springs take millions
of years to develop. In less than
a century not even the equiva-
lent of an eye blink in the history
of our existence humans have
managed to inflict an appalling
amount of damage.
Because of our careless per-
sonal and industrial practices
and more shamefully our apathy,
such irreplaceable treasures now
stand at the tipping point of be-
ing lost forever.
Man is the only animal on the
planet that pollutes his own nest.
What happens to us when the
nest is gone?

Column inaccurate


on Waldo speed trap
Dear Editor:
This is in response to an editorial re-printed in the Bradford County
Telegraph on June 10, 2010 written by Jim McGauley.
I have been a citizen of Waldo for 23 years and have been city clerk
since 2002 and city manager/clerk since 2004. To my knowledge Mr.
McGauley has never visited Waldo, talked to one of our police officers
or citizens to see the importance of controlling the speed of the over
30,000 motorist a day that travel through the City of Waldo. So what
are your remarks about the City of Waldo based on, something you
have read or heard?
I am a staunch supporter of freedom of speech, but I also feel that
researching what you are going to write about is a responsibility that
goes along with that right. The incident with former Lawtey Police Of-
ficer Kenyatta Sheffield had nothing to do with the City of Waldo, its
police department, or its citizens.
Waldo has two major highways that dissect the town, U.S. 301 and
State Road 24. The citizens in Waldo use these highways to get to the
school, post office, and the various businesses along these two major
highways. They range in age from young children to the elderly and
their safety is our number one goal.
According to NHTSA [National Highway and Traffic Safety Admin-
istration], 41,059 people lost their lives in auto accidents in the U.S. in
2007 alone. Thanks to our enforcement of the traffic laws within our
city limits, not a single person has lost their life in an auto related ac-
cident in 17 years.
As for major crimes, our police officers are the first line of defense in
our town, investigating and solving all types of crimes, including home
invasion, drug distribution, and creation of pipe bombs. Our police de-
partment has a good working relationship with Alachua and Bradford
County Sheriffs Offices, the Florida Highway Patrol, and the Florida
Dept. of Law Enforcement in solving many of the major crimes you
referred too. It is this working relationship that has given our town one
of the lowest crime rates in the nation.
We don't like writing speeding tickets. We would prefer people obey
the law. We take steps to prevent not only speeding, but more serious
crimes such as armed robbery by strategically placing police cars at
local businesses along the highway in an effort to prevent crime and to
slow traffic. If you would take the time to drive through our town, you
could see for yourself. Speed is not our only concern. We have arrested
people for DUI, possession and distribution of drugs, pipe bombs, sto-
len goods, revoked licenses, and even escaped murderers who tried to
speed through our town.
One concern of ours that you did not address is the varying speeds
along 301 within our city limits. It changes from 45 mph to 55 mph
and back to 45 mph. Our city council has requested several times the
Florida Dept. of Transportation to make this a consistent speed. How-
ever, Florida DOT has advised us, after doing numerous traffic studies,
our change requests are not warranted.
The setting of fines, signs along the highway, and speed limits are
controlled by the Florida Legislature and Dept. of Transportation. Our
primary responsibility is enforcement. Therefore, we invite you to visit
our town, but drive safely and obey the law or suffer the consequenc-
es.

City of Waldo, FL


'I didn't say that...


Erased, ruined lives from teen drinking


JESSICA PREVATT
I read news accounts fre-
quently of underage teenagers
drinking and driving. The end
result is usually disastrous for
either themselves, a friend or
somebody else completely inno-
cent who was in the wrong place
at the wrong time.
Take the recent conviction of
the teen in Jacksonville who is
going to prison for manslaugh-
ter after drinking, a lot, then
letting three others ride in the
back of this truck that wrecked.
One young lady was killed and
another seriously injured. Those
families will never be the same.
There are a lot of things
wrong with this story, starting
with why teenagers were out at
3:30 am. I know at that age I still
had to be home early, especially
during the school year. Knowing
what I know now, that wasn't
such a bad thing and I really
didn't miss out on anything. As
I got older my curfew got later,
but at no point would 3:30 am
have been acceptable. Not that
I didn't push the envelope a few


times. Honestly, there is nothing
good that comes of teenagers or
young adults being out that late.
Trust me, I know. I haven't been
over 30 forever!
Another point for parents
- don't allow your children to
drink underage at home and
not expect them to do it when
they leave the house. If they
are allowed to drink at home in
moderation, this just means the
moderation goes out the window
when away from parental influ-
ence. Not to mention the fact it
is illegal for those under the age
of 21 to drink. There are many
crosses and markers on the road-
ways to prove this point. Teen-
agers just aren't mature enough
to handle alcohol. Neither are
many adults, for that matter.
Teenagers feel like they are
invincible and what happens to
the other kids won't happen to
them. This doesn't just apply to
drinking and driving. I see way
too many young drivers going
fast or pulling reckless stunts in
their vehicles for attention. They
just don't understand that not
only are they putting themselves


at risk, but anyone else who is
on the roadways with them. Ac-
cidents happen in the blink of
an eye, even when you are being
vigilant. Trust me, I have experi-
ence in this also.
I hate to see parents turn a
blind eye to what their teenagers
are out doing. You can't shelter
them from everything, but rules
and curfews are good. Be a good
example. Children are less likely
to go out partying and drinking,
if they are concerned about get-
ting caught. Not to say they still
won't try it, but the chance of
being caught and punished can


Dear Editor:
In response to Leonard Davis'
letter in last week's Press, let me
start by saying I do not feel I said
anything [to fellow school board
member Karen McCollum] that
could have been interpreted as
bullying.
I certainly understand that
people sometimes feel bullied
whether intended or not, so
I'd like to publicly apologize to
Mrs. McCollum if anything I
said made her feel bullied. That
was certainly not my intention. I
only intended to say that she was
entitled to her opinion and I was
entitled to mine.
I listened to the tape [of the
meeting] several times, and I
didn't say any of the things that
Mr. Davis quoted in his letter.
I never said that any issue that
came before the board was far
beyond my knowledge and un-
derstanding.
I also never said that I relied
on staff members and contrac-
tors to make my decisions. I have
no idea where Mr. Davis came up
with those quotes.
The only thing I said was, and
I quote: "I don't have the exper-
tise to determine that all policies
comply with Florida law. So we
have to have someone to look at
our policies and see that they are
in compliance with Florida stat-
utes."
We are a small district and
do not have legal people on staff
with the expertise to do that. As
you can see, this is not even close
to what Mr. Davis quoted me as
saying.


The people who elect us have
the expectation that we will
consult when we need to make
the most knowledgeable and
informed decision in the best
interest of their children and our
school system.
I feel the members of this
board do a great job of getting
all the information on agenda
items and come to the meetings
prepared to make informed and
knowledgeable decisions. That is
not "rubber stamping."
To my knowledge, Mr. Davis
has attended one school board
meeting in the last 25 years, yet
he has the knowledge to know we
are out of touch with our purpose
in the district.
Dwight Crews, Member
Baker County School Board


She also


felt a loss
Dear Editor:
I want to send my heartfelt
condolences to the family griev-
ing the loss of their dog Koby
that was killed by our dog Mary
recently.
However, I want to relay some
additional information about the
incident. Mary was laid to rest
two days later and it was extreme-
ly difficult for us as well because
she had been a loyal member of
our family for over six years.
Also, Mary's escape from our
residence was a direct result of
it being broken into, and since I
was at work nothing could have
been avoided.
Again, my condolences to Ko-
by's family because I, too, know
what it feels like to lose a faithful
companion.

that not only are they putting
their life in danger, but others as
well if they drink and drive.
Of course, the same applies for
drugs. Driving while impaired is
dangerous. Period. Whether you
are 16 or 65, just don't do it and
help keep our roads and chil-
dren safe!

'What you had to say ..'


We asked June 22: "What do you
thinkshould be done about the amount of
people who are caught driving without a
license multiple times? What kind ofpun-
ishment wouldstop this repeat behavior?"
Here's what you had to say.

Pat Cobb:
"This is a difficult one, folks have to
drive to work etc. Perhaps probation that
works toward getting their license back
and does not end until their license is re-
newed. The probation officer can monitor
that they do not drive."

Doug Feather:
"i don't think you will stop it but any-
thing after 2 should be 60 days"'

Johnathan M Lee:
"IDK. Maybe jail for one year per time?
I really don't know, I am just a young teen

Elisa Lyons:
"Well since there is a hardship license
for those that must get to work and their
children to school, I say 30 days for each
time they do it after the first warning.
Increasing by 30 days for each offense. I
am sure a good bit of these drivers have
lost their license forfailure to pay fines...
so that would seem pointless. They know
their license are invalid so it is willfully
breaking the law! You would get jail time
for most any other repeat offense. Why
not this one?"


DennisWhelan:
"Super glue their hands to a steering
wheel ... that will cure that"'

Chrissy Mobley:
"Do more licence checks. If they know
its really likelythey're going to getcaught,
they are less likely to take the risk"'

Christie Passmore:
"Being the fact I have been rear-
ended by a drunk driver who already had
his licenses suspended 13 times and he
was still driving it's kinda hard to say, but
then again prison time sounds a lot better
then seeing him drive past me again the
next day!"

James R. Hart Sr.:
"After the 3rd time, impound their
car! And then impound any car they drive
after that!"

Healthy Families slashed Sister is

State ends it here. 8 other counties arrested


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com


Healthy Families, a state-funded program of-
fering voluntary in-home parenting resources to
at-risk families, will cease to exist in Baker County
next month.
The Florida Legislature slashed the program's
budget by 35 percent, which resulted in its elimina-
tion here and in eight other counties.
The program served approximately 36 families in
Baker County, providing home visitors
who teach mostly low-income, single ((
parents about child health and posi- It was a

other resources in their community. that will
"They're building on the strength of
families," said Carol McNally, director more rth
of Healthy Families Florida, which is
administered bythe nonprofit Ounce of families.
Prevention Fund of Florida with funds
from the Department of Children and Director of
Families [DCF].
"They provide them the knowledge
and skills they need to increase child protective fac-
tors so that their kids grow up free from abuse and
become more likely to be successful members of so-
ciety," she said.
The voluntary program covers the importance
of child immunizations and doctor check-ups, safe
sleeping habits, coping with crying, developing
problem-solving skills, managing stress and a host
of other topics for up to five years.
Participants typically have multiple children ages
5 and under. They've been involved with DCF's child
protective services, abused as children, have no high
school diploma, lack adequate prenatal care and ex-
perience limited contact with family and friends.
Ms. McNally said the program's been proven to
be 98 percent effective at preventing child abuse.
The figure is based on the number of families who

left the program and didn't have an instance of child
abuse or neglect during the subsequent year.
She also cited that 70 percent of parents who en-
ter the program unemployed leave it with a job.
In addition to Baker, the Healthy Families gov-
erning board decided to eliminate funding in Nas-
sau, Osceola, Seminole, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor,
Hamilton and Lafayette counties.
Facing a roughly $10 million reduction to its
2009-10 budget of $28 million, the organization
had to find savings.
"It was a huge cut that will impact more than
3500 families and expose about 5800
children to the pain and suffering of
gC cut child abuse and neglect," Ms. McNally
said. "It is our hope that the legislature
Impact will restore the funding lost last ses-
sion."

ated and ranked, and though all pro-
grams lost some money, those ranking
:arolMcNally the lowest went unfunded for the 2010-
y Families Florida 11 state fiscal year, which begins July 1.
)) "When we learned of the cut, it was
our goal to sustain every project," Ms.
McNally said. "But with such a deep cut, we had no
choice and had to eliminate four projects [cover-
ing nine counties] and cut the remaining projects
... With guidance from our advisory committee and
board, we developed a budget plan and had to take
project performance into consideration."
Since the creation of Healthy Families in 1998,
she said the legislature has supported the program
and eventually expanded it statewide.
Ms. McNally also questioned the logic of cutting
a program with proven results.
She said research has shown that caring for a ne-
glected or abused child can cost the state $64,000
a year while Healthy Families can largely prevent
abuse and neglect for a fraction of the cost, about
$1700 per child.


Stolen gun found in vehicle


Two men fled on foot after the
vehicle they were in was pulled
over by police in Glen St. Mary
shortly after midnight on June
15.
Deputy John Hardin said
he stopped the 1995 Toyota at
Washington and CR 125 about
12:20 for having faulty tail lights.
The two occupants, described as
black males, ran from the scene
and were not located during a
subsequent canine search.
The officer found a .40 caliber
pistol on the driver's side floor-
board and it later was determined
to be stolen, as was the license
plate on the vehicle.
The tag belonged on a vehicle
owned by Evelyn Robins of Mac-
clenny, and was reported stolen

Sex assault

complaint
A Macclenny man is accused
in a criminal complaint with
sexual assault on a 15-year-old
Sanderson girl.
The girl's father called police
about 3:oo am on June 19 after
finding Christopher Robinson,
20, in his daughter's bedroom.
He told Deputy Earl Lord this is
the second time Mr. Robinson

The complaint alleges sexual

available this week on the owner
of the Toyota or the gun.
In other property crimes in-
volving vehicles, a criminal com-
plaint was filed June 16 charging
Alan Weldon, 39, ofValdosta, GA
with stealing a 1996 Ford pickup
belonging to ex-girlfriend Kristy
Heidron of Glen St. Mary.
The owner contacted police
after attempting to get the vehicle
back after making a trip to Valdo-
sta where she located the suspect
and he drove off in the pickup.
Deputy Brandon Kiser then
entered the truck registration in
the crime computer, and it was
located on June 18 in Hahira, GA.
Mr. Weldon was not detained,
however.
He allegedly took the truck
from Ms. Heidron's residence off
CR 122 on June 11.
Denise Curry reported per-
sonal items and documents
taken from her 1995 Chevrolet


Suburban while it was parked
outside her residence on Hamil-

on June 18.
The vehicle was unlocked and
the owner placed the value of the
missing property at $351.

the Council on Aging and parked
overnight June 18 in a fenced lot
off Baker Bus Dr. in west Mac-
clenny.

for fraud
The sister of a Macclenny man
was arrested June 14 for steal-
ing his credit card and using it to
make $472 worth of purchases at
the Walmart Supercenter.
Troy Vonk contacted the sher-
iffs department and named Abby
Vonk, 20, also of Macclenny, as
the person mostly likely to have
stolen his wallet from his Chest-
nut Rd. address.
He later identified Ms. Vonk
on a surveillance tape at Walmart
using the card to make three
separate purchases. She also at-
tempted to return merchandise
valued at $131 for cash, but in-
stead the amount was credited
back to Mr. Vonk's account.
The victim told Deputy Chris
Walker he was informed by his

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Coalition to battle drug abuse


Trends 'troubling' in schools and elsewhere


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A new initiative is underway
to prevent drug abuse in Baker
County by forming a community
coalition to mount a more holis-
tic approach to the problem, and
possibly, secure more funding in
coming years.
Because so many factors can
contribute to drug abuse like
unstable families, dropping out
of high school, poor self-esteem,
brushes with the law or all of the
above many in public health
say a community-wide commit-
ment is needed to reverse trou-
bling trends in substance abuse.
For instance, prescription
drug abuse among youths has
become much too common, said
Marcheta Crews, the school dis-
trict's health services specialist.
"It's in the school system
big time," she said during the
monthly meeting of Healthy Bak-
er Inc.'s board of directors June
14. "I'm talking about a bunch of
children, and it's leading to a lot
of expulsions."
Healthy Baker is a nonprofit
group dedicated to improving the
health of residents through coop-
eration among local agencies.
Ms. Crews, one of Healthy
Baker's board members, said
students as young as the fifth
grade have been found with illicit
prescription pills, and that expel-
ling them may not be the right
reaction.
"In many cases, when you
leave them out of school, you're
just making the problem worse,"
she told the board.
Health Baker's members rep-
resent the health department,
the NEFSH-affiliated Com-
munity Behavioral Healthcare
Services [CBHS], Baker Commu-
nity Counseling Services [BCCS],
Northeast Florida Community
Action Agency, the sheriffs of-


fice, school district
and other organi-
zations; making it
an ideal home for
a community co-
alition to prevent
drug and alcohol
abuse.

ment director

BCCS director

Mental heal

huge issues i

community
Director of Baker County


Chris Thomas and CBHS direc-
tor Tonya Branch are leading the
effort to create the prevention
coalition.
There are more than 50
such coalitions in the state and
roughly a dozen with approval of
Florida's Department of Children
and Families [DCF].
"Mental health and substance
abuse are huge issues in this
community," Ms. Dunlavey said,
adding that cooperation among
health care agencies, businesses,
schools, civic groups and govern-
ment will be critical to the coali-
tion's success.
During the meeting, the
Healthy Baker board decided
to serve as the fiscal agent for
the new coalition, which means
funds allocated by the state for
substance abuse prevention
would flow through the organi-
zation.
Today DCF provides about
$14,000 a year for drug abuse
prevention in Baker County. The
funds go to BCCS, the sole pro-
vider of drug counseling here.
Its director, Mr. Thomas,
said that about $11,ooo of the
sum pays for anti-drug and anti-
violence programs in public
schools.
DCF allocates about 34 per-
cent of its substance abuse and
mental health funding towards
prevention, but that share is
slowly growing.
The portion will rise to 35 per-
cent next year and 36 percent the
following year, said


Tina St. Clair is
th and a program admin-
Sand istrator in DCF's
Substance Abuse
tlSCe are and Mental Health
n this division.
"It's a really
good first step,"
KerryD she said of forming
SHeahDeparveyt the coalition. "This
jj is the direction the
state is going in."
Both Ms. Dunlavey and Mr.
Thomas agreed that establish-
ing a coalition would position the
county better to receive addition-
al funding from other sources to
combat drug abuse locally.
"The reason for the coalition is
to go into those areas where com-
petitive grant dollars are, both
state and federal," Mr. Thomas
said. "Wherever the money
comes from, with a coalition,
we'll be better off getting it."
Mr. Thomas volunteered to
lead development of the coali-
tion, a job that Ms. Crews be-
lieves is very important. She said
a similar effort was started in
years past, but fizzled out due to
a lack of leadership.
Mr. Thomas will meet with
a community coalition "coach"
July 2 to begin the process of
forming a coalition.
"The biggest deadline is to get
it together by July of next year,
when the state's next funding
cycle starts," he said. "It's pretty
much going to be free volunteer
work by everybody up until that
point."
Cindy Grant of the Center for
Prevention Research at Florida
State University explained the
coalition development process
that includes gathering local data
on things like drug use, vehicle
crashes involving alcohol, juve-
nile crime and teen pregnancy.
The information is then used
to assess and prioritize problem
areas at which to target evi-
denced-based strategies proven


to prevent drug and alcohol
abuse.
As those plans are implement-
ed, the coalition would continue
to collect and monitor local data
so as to track the effectiveness of
the strategies, Ms. Grant said.
"It was recognized that while
a coalition might not be able to
wipe out drugs in a single stroke,
they could chip away at various
issues or determinants that were
contributing to the drug prob-
lem," reads a handout distribut-
ed by Ms. Grant last week titled
What is a Community Coali-
tion?. "This insight brought the
recognition that there was not
a single answer to solving drug
abuse, but rather a multitude of
actions each of which may con-
tribute in some way to blocking a
vector of the drug epidemic."
Drug abuse prevention co-
alitions have been operating in
Florida since the late 198os when
the first one formed in Miami.
They help demonstrate a
community's commitment to re-
ducing substance abuse and offer
a means to measure the impacts
of prevention strategies, two key
factors in securing funding for
abuse prevention, Mr. Thomas
said.

Youths arrested for

being in vacant house


Two juvenile males were ar-
rested for burglary the afternoon
of June 14 after they entered a
vacant house on North Lowder
in Macclenny to await the arrival
of a friend.
Deputy Jason Bryan went to
the address about 5:30 after a
neighbor reported suspicious ac-
tivity, and found the boys age
17 and from Lake City, and age 16
from Glen St. Mary inside the
structure.
The property is owned by
Chuck Brannan, chief investiga-
tor for the sheriffs department.
The youths apparently entered
the house through the attic and
told the deputy they went inside
to cool off from the heat. The
older boy had a smoking pipe in
his backpack and was charged
also with possession of drug par-
aphernalia.
In other reports of property
crimes:
An outside air conditioning


unit and copper wiring were tak-
en from a house on Glen Nursery
Rd. overnight on June 14.
Owner Lin Taber estimated
the damage and replacement cost
of the 5-ton unit at $5000.
Mark Crews, 28, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for criminal
mischief about 12:45 am on June
17 after he smashed the front
door glass at Mac's Liquors with
his fist.
The incident took place after
Mr. Crews was asked to leave fol-
lowing a disturbance involving
his girlfriend.

OSU graduate
Andrea L. Harrell of Mac-
clenny graduated recently from
Oregon State University in Cor-
vallis with a bachelor of science
degree in liberal studies.
She is a BCHS graduate and
the daughter of Marilyn and An-
drew Harrell.


Body found in forest

The medical examiner in Gainesville is expected to rule on the cause
of death of a Jacksonville man found lying face down beside his pickup
truck in the Osceola Forest north of Olustee the afternoon of June 18.
Edward Koepka, 25, was likely dead two days before his body was
discovered by a Jacksonville couple riding on Forest Road 235B about
5:00, according to Deputy Earl Lord. Bobby Craddock notified police
after driving up on the 2002 Ford pickup parked in the roadway with
the driver side door open.
Sheriffs investigator Steve Harvey spoke to Mr. Koepka's mother in
Jacksonville, who said she last saw him about 10:30 the night of June

Well, my darling it's hard to be-
lieve that it's been a year since
you left this earth for a much
better place with streets of gold
and without any sickness. I
know you are watching over us
each and every day. You would
be so proud of your children.
I know I am. Your son has
followed in your footsteps as a
truck driver and Daddy's little
girl has become her momma's
rock. The grandkids think about
you every day and I tell them
that you will always be with
them. I love and miss you. So
continue to be our guardian
angel until we meet again.
LOVE ALWAYS,
YOUR WIFE

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
Ifeel you everywhere I go
I see your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can't believe you're gone
It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
The death tore the pages all
away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been
through
Just knowing no one could take
your place
Sometimes I wonder who you'd
be today
Would you see the world?
Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with family?
I wonder, what would you
name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue
Ifeel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound
crazy
Sunny days seem to hurt the
most
I wear the pain like a heavy
coat
The only thing that gives me
hope
Is I know I'll see you again
someday
Someday, someday
I still cry for you everyday, see
you someday

Men find free health screenings

Fair targets hospital weary males, uninsured


The Baker County Health Department
hosted a men's health fair the morning of
June 18 offering free hearing, vision, cho-
lesterol, glucose and blood pressure screen-
ings.
Organized in conjunction with Florida's
Men's Health Month in June and the na-
tional Men's Health Week, which precedes
Father's Day, the four-hour event drew 11
men of ages 42 to 60.
"Men aren't the best at getting their
screens done," said Jonathan Gaskins, a
health educator with the department. "Even
those who would, but may not have access
to health care, can come get these minor
screens done and that could push them to
go see a doctor."
The fair was funded through $65,000
three-year men's health grant from the
state, which has also paid for other activi-
ties promoting healthy behaviors among
youth, like abstinence, physical activity and
avoiding drugs.
The second year of the grant begins July
1.
"We kind of got our feet wet this time
around," Mr. Gaskins said. "For the next
year, we're looking forward to seeing what p
more we can do for the community." S
The fair also included a raffle for a free
month of membership at Anytime Fitness,
resources to help smokers kick the habit from
Florida AHEC [Area Health Education Cen-
ters] and a representative from the Jackson-
ville Children's Commission with information

about the importance of a nutritious diet.
Mr. Gaskins said another event sched-
uled for June 26 from lo:oo am to 2:00 pm
at Jonesville Park in Sanderson will feature
kid-friendly literature to promote childhood


reading. Child car seats will also be available
for $30 along with information about safely
installing and using them.
For more information, call Mr. Gaskins at
259-6291, extension 2248.


Independence Day
celebration July 1
Mark your calendars for July 1,
the date of this year's annual In-
dependence Day Celebration on
the campus of Northeast Florida
State Hospital.
The event runs from 5:30-9:30
that evening, culminating in the
annual fireworks display. Admis-
sion is free with lots of food and
entertainment by local artists.
The celebration is organized
by both the hospital and City of
Macclenny and sponsored by
local businesses and organiza-

Knitters hold WWKiP Day June 19
Baker County knitting enthusiasts gathered last Saturday for a morning of knitting in front of The Local Needle on Mac-
clenny Boulevard to observe World Wide Knit in Public Day. Started in 2005, WWKiP Day takes place on the second Sat-
urday in June and began as a way for knitters to share their craft, enjoy each others company and show that knitting
isn't just for grannies. After the event, knitters shared lunch together at Calendars Restaurant. According to Ms. Heinze,
about a dozen local knitters also participate in knit-ins about twice a month at different local Macclenny restaurants.The
knit-ins are open to everyone. Clockwise from bottom left: Rae O'Donal, Kasey Heinze, April Teel, Jo-Anne Adkinson and

Enjoys new mexican menu

Ambiance, apple burrito falter at 'Pancho'


Check it out...
www.bakercountypress.com


BOB GERARD
PRESS STAFF

I don't normally review res-
taurants in Baker County. In fact
I've only done it a couple times in
the 20 years I've worked for The
Press. I'm reviewing the Pancho
Rancho Mexican restaurant on
South 6th in Macclenny for two
reasons. One, it is very good, and
two, because I only think a hand-
ful of people know that it even
exists.
Baker County is fortunate
with both our Mexican restau-
rants. Pancho Rancho's fare is
much lighter than its older com-
petitor San Jose. Both restaurant
are good choices if you're in the
mood for Mexican food.
I discovered Pancho Rancho


by chance. A friend of mine who
is a member of Anytime Fitness
recommended it and I didn't even
know it was there. They have no
sign by the road or even on a sign
on the restaurant to announce its
existence.
I don't eat a lot of Mexican
food, but I when I have the crav-
ing little else satisfies. My wife
and I decided that we would give
it a try during post-planning after
school let out.
It's a little store front restau-
rant that looks a lot like many
other Mexican restaurants. It's
not much for atmosphere, just
a few booths and tables. There's
Mexican music running in the
background and some pictures
on the wall. But it's bright, clean
and the staff is friendly.


Of course, the proof of a good
restaurant is in the menu and I
have been impressed with Pan-
cho Rancho the couple of times
I've gone. Both menu items I
tried have been very good.
I started with a chicken en-
chilada and it was very good.
The sauce was lighter than most
Mexican eateries. Often the red
sauce overpowers the chicken
and cheese but this was not the
case here.
I did not care for the apple
burrito that I had for dessert,
however. It was basically stewed
apples wrapped in a tortilla and
wasn't really my thing.
The second time I ate at Pan-
cho Rancho I really had a treat. I
ordered the fajita quesadilla and
it was delicious. It fact it quickly


became my favorite Mexican
dish.
I love fajitas anyway and put-
ting the grilled meat and veg-
etables inside a quesadilla was
a great idea. It's served with a
guacamole salad and topped with
queso cheese. You can get either
steak or chicken and I chose the
grilled chicken. It was a good
choice.
Again the sauce was light and
the vegetables grilled just right. I
was very pleased and will order
this entr6e again and again.
So if you're in the mood for
good Mexican fare, search out
the Pancho Rancho next door to
Anytime Fitness for an excellent
meal deal.

Making sense


Rosie Nickles


Did you know that you, as a
consumer, have a whole slew of
rights on your side when it comes
to dealing with collectors? A col-
lector attempting to get payment
of an old debt from you can be the
original creditor or a debt collec-
tion company.
You need to know your rights
as a consumer and learn how to
deal with these folks. Let's get
something straight first: if you
owe the money, you should pay.
Many collectors use tactics
that rile you up emotionally. They
scare the bejeezus out of you un-
til you pay up that's their grand
plan. It's simple, and it usually
works! But did you know that
threats, verbal abuse and other
similar tactics used by collectors
are against federal law? The Fed-
eral Fair Debt Collection Practic-
es Act of 1978 established bound-
aries for debt collectors as well as
your rights as a consumer.
The following are some of the
main facts of the FDCPA.
-Collectors cannot contact
you at any unusual time or place
known to be inconvenient. Let
them know when and where they
can call you.
-If a collector speaks to any
person other than whose name is
on the debt, they are not allowed
to reveal that they are a collector
or the purpose of the call.
-Collectors may not use in-
appropriate language, make
threats, or trick you into paying
on the old debt.
-Collectors may not ask for, or
accept, post-dated checks unless
the consumer is notified in writ-
ing.


You, as a consumer, must al-
ways:
-Keep a record of phone calls
and any e-mail or mail commu-
nication with collectors. Include
names of people that you spoke
with.
-Get any settlement or agree-
ment in writing.
-Be proactive. Don't avoid
collectors.
Don't let a collector get you
upset. Take control of the situ-
ation. Tell them that you'll only
talk to them every two weeks or
so. Tell them exactly where they
fit in to your budget, and how you
plan to pay them. And let them
know that you are familiar with
the Federal Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act of 1979 and that
you expect them to abide by its
provisions.
If a collector is clearly over-
stepping the boundaries and
breaking any of the above laws,
hang up and report them to the
Federal Trade Commission and
your state's attorney general.
Don't get me wrong, there is
a place in the market for debt
collectors who run a clean, law-
abiding business. But somewhere
along the way you're going to run
across one that runs its business
on the other end of the spectrum.
And you need to be educated and
ready to rumble.

nancial counselor. She is a graduate

Teams host, win tourney


All three of the Baker Boyz
youth baseball teams competing
in a tournament last weekend in
Baker County won the champi-
onship games in their respective
divisions.
The 2010 Baker Boyz Invita-
tional Youth Baseball Tourna-
ment included 21 teams in all
from across Northeast Florida
with players ranging in age from


9 to 13.
The Baker Boyz 13-year-
old and under team competed
against two other teams in three
games June 19, defeating the
North Florida Hurricanes 11-3 in
the championship.
The 12-year-old and under
squad finished the tournament
the following day with wins over
the Ancient City Bombers 9-5


and the San Souci Sluggers 9-5,
to take the four-team division's
championship.
The final Baker Boyz team in
the 9-year-old under division,
topped four other teams, in-
cluding Ponte Vedra 7-1 and the
North Florida Hurricanes 5-4 for
the championship, on June 20.


"We wuz robbed!"
So read the headline after the
USA's 2-2 draw with Slovenia
in the World Cup. The US team
needed a win over the Balkan
country to ensure it would prog-
ress to the knockout stage of the
Cup.
With five minutes to go in the
game, it looked like they had just
that as Maurice Edu slipped his
defender and blasted home a goal
on a free kick. But inexplicably,
referee Koman Coulibaly of Mali
called a foul on the USA.
It was anything but a foul.
In fact, the Solvenians could
have been called for a couple of
penalty kicks on the play. Clint
Dempsey was horse-collared
by his Slovenian marker or if
Coulibaly chose he could have
called another against Michael
Bradley's defender who had him
wrapped up.
The commentators looked at
the play from every angle pos-


Quincy Griffis

Receives degree
Quincy Anne Griffis of Mac-
clenny received a degree in
medicine from the University
of Florida, College of Medicine
May 22, 2010. She was a mem-
ber of the Gold Humanism Hon-
or Society, Chapman Chapter,
Academy of American Family
Physicians and was the recipient
of the Caroline Cody Memorial
Scholarship Award.
For the next three years she
will be a resident at St. Vincent's
Hospital in Jacksonville as a

sible, but it was clear there was
no penalty.
But like bad calls everywhere,
there is no recourse to overturn it
and give the US the much-needed
win. In fact, the referee now re-
fuses to even comment on why he
called a foul in the first place.
It was a tale of two halves. The
US was pitiful in the first half and
went behind 2-0, but came roar-
ing back in the second half, with
goals from Landon Donovan and
Bradley. The winning goal could
have assured them of advancing
out of the group stage.
It puts the US in a sticky po-
sition. A win over Algeria on
Wednesday and they are through
to the quarterfinals. But Algeria
held the powerful England squad
to a o-o draw so it might be a
tough proposition.
Kobe Bryant got his fifth


NBA title on Saturday and an
MVP trophy to go with it as the
Lakers beat Boston in the sev-
enth game of the NBA Finals.
Bryant had an off-night shooting
in the game but was outstanding
on the boards as they held off the
determined Celtics.
The commentators were talk-
ing about the possibility of Bry-
ant passing Michael Jordan's six
titles. Actually he stands a pretty
good chance with the current
makeup of the team.
They also talked about the
possibility of the 31-year-old
matching Bill Russell's total of
11 titles. I wouldn't look for that
happening though. He'd pretty
much have to win for six straight
years and the chances of that are
slim to none.

CDBG PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
1st Public Hearing Notice

The Baker County Board of Commissioners is
considering applying to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) for a FFY 2009 Small Cit-
ies Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
of up to $750,000. These funds must be used for
one of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate income per-
sons;
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of
slums or blight; or
3. To meet other community development
needs of recent origin having a particular urgency
because existing conditions pose a serious and im-
mediate threat to the health or welfare of the com-
munity and where other financial resources are not
available to meet such needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds
may be used are in the areas of housing, neighbor-
hood revitalization, commercial revitalization, or
economic development and include such improve-
ment activities as acquisition of real property,
loans to private-for-profit business, purchase of
machinery and equipment, construction of infra-
structure, rehabilitation of houses and commercial
buildings, and energy conservation. Additional
information regarding the range of activities that
may be undertaken will be provided at the public
hearing. For each activity that is proposed, at least
70% of the funds must benefit low and moderate
income persons.
In developing an application for submission to
DCA, the Baker County Board of Commissioners
must plan to minimize displacement of persons as
a result of planned CDBG activities. In addition, the
Baker County Board of Commissioners is required
to develop a plan to assist displaced persons.
A public hearing to receive citizen views concern-
ing the community's economic and community de-
velopment needs will be held at the Baker County
Administration Building, 55 North Third Street,
Macclenny, FL 32063 on Friday, June 25, 2010 at

impaired or the visually impaired should contact
Ann Yarborough, at least two (2) calendar days
prior to the meeting and an interpreter will be
provided. Any non-English speaking person wish-
ing to attend the public hearing should contact Ms.

and beefsteaks and we grow their
black krims."
The trendy Bistro Aix Restau-
rant in San Marco is one of Mr.
Francis' clients. Bistro Aix diners
who order salads will likely be
served black krim tomatoes.
About four acres of the farm's
property are utilized for succes-
sional plantings of seasonal crops
like egg plant, squash, potatoes,
lettuces and peppers.
A specialty are the micro-let-
tuces, harvested while the leaves
are very small and tender.
And then there are the chick-
ens.
About 200 hens of several va-
rieties produce eggs daily. They
are white, brown, pale green and
blue, depending on the variety of
chicken.
Mr. Francis flipped up a door
in the side of the chicken house,
exposing rows of nesting boxes.
Each one held a hen and there
are dozens of boxes that line the
building's interior. Mr. Francis
plucked out an egg and looked at
it.
"There's a live webcam in the
chicken house and that way we
keep an eye on all these girls and
what's happening out here," he
said. "You can see it on our Web
site as well."

Green farming
Sustainable farming practices
have been moving steadily to the
forefront over the last decade.
But Twinn Bridges Herb Farm
was already working toward be-
coming a green enterprise before
the movement took hold.
Although the farm is not too
percent green, it comes very
close.
The Francises view their ap-
proach as farm-friendly. Their
growing and harvesting methods
have basically replaced the need
for chemical pesticides and fertil-
izers, Mr. Francis explained.
"Healthy plants typically fend


off bugs naturally, but when
they reach the end of their food
producing stage decline starts
quickly, which is why succes-
sional planting is important.
"As soon as they go into de-
cline, that's when the bugs move
in and cause damage. Removing
them in a timely manner and
getting new crops re-established
generally keeps the pest problem
under control."
For the occasions when suc-
cessional planting methods
aren't quite enough, they spray
on a special biodegradable soap.
Some of their other green
practices include composting,
reclamation of unused produce
and bio-diesel production.
The farm participates in a
program to pick up used cooking
oil from the restaurants and also
bring back any unused produce
that is no longer suitable to serve
to customers.
The cooking oil is processed on
site to produce bio-diesel fuel for
a delivery van and the outdated

produce is fed to the chickens.
"There is a lot of coopera-
tion in green practices that can
be mutually beneficial," said
Mr. Francis. "For us, recycling
the oil and produce provides us
with fuel and supplements the
chickens' diet, which helps make
better quality egg yokes. In turn,
the restaurant's costs for refuse
removal are greatly reduced."
A by-product of the bio-die-
sel production is pure glycerin,
which is used to make homemade
soaps.
It's not all work on the farm
all the time. An endearing sight
is a friendly black hen named
Lucy who struts freely among the
greenhouses throughout the day,
monitoring the workers' activi-
ties and plucking up grasshop-
pers and other insects with great
enthusiasm.
"Lucy is a family pet and the
head of our bug control commit-
tee," jokes Mr. Francis.
She's a source of entertain-
ment, too.

Lucy looks forward to the
workers' mid-morning break
and waits expectantly as they pull
up chairs in the shade. A worker
presents the hen with a generous
pile of crumbs from her morning
snack.
"As you can see, she loves do-
nuts," he said.


Being able to work for them-
selves and doing something
they're both passionate about
has been a fulfilling experience
for Scott and Denise.
"We do have an environmen-
tally conscious operation here
and a humane perspective to-
wards the chickens," said Mr.
Francis. "Denise carefully tends
the ones who get sick or injured.
She's also a wonderful cook. We
haven't eaten a tomato from the
grocery store in 13 years."
Since they also live at the farm
and Sunday is their only free
day, the couple usually makes
the most of it by taking a day trip
somewhere. The beach is a favor-
ite destination.
"We stay more than busy with
everything," said Mr. Francis,
"but at least this way, we get to
pick our own 80 hours a week."

How it all started
Mr. Francis worked for 23
years as a Florida Times-Union
computer technician. His wife
was the head waitress at Chart
House restaurant. He was about
to retire and she wanted to start
a career outside of the service in-
dustry.
"I had no experience grow-
ing anything, but Denise had a
green thumb," said Mr. Francis.
"She grew up in South Carolina
with folks who had ties to agri-
culture."
They knew they needed land,
so Mr. Francis sold his sailboat
to raise the down payment. The
couple had it in mind to grow
and sell hydroponic tomatoes, an
agricultural trend at the time. By


THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


Go bonkers for bubbles


Taber library hosts creative event


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
There were bubbles, bubbles
and more bubbles at the "Buckets
of Bubbles" event held at Emily
Taber Library June 17.
Nearly 75 children showed up
for a morning of fun organized
by Terri Brown, coordinator of
children's programming for Du-
val and Baker County libraries.
Kids had a blast during a
bucket race, bubble-wrap pop-
ping competition and a bubble
gum blowing contest. Even if an
activity did not directly involved
bubbles, such as the painting
table, cupcake walk and the hula
hoop hop, all utilized props that
were circular and resembled
- you guessed it bubbles.
During the bucket race, two
kids at a time ran to a bucket
filled with water where they
dropped in sponge balls, scooped
them out, then raced to another
bucket.
The idea was to soak up as
much water in the sponge balls as
possible, then run and squeeze it
into the empty bucket. The first
one to fill the bucket won and
was rewarded with a prize from
a super-sized goodie box stuffed
with colorful prizes. The winners
got to choose from funny twisted
plastic drinking straws, Hawai-
ian leis, strings of gold beads and
assorted colored pencils.
What sounded like a frenzy of
live firecrackers came from kids
jumping up and down on sheets
of bubble wrap. The prize for
popping the most bubbles in a
certain time frame was a plastic
frisbee.
The frisbees came in very
handy for another purpose at
the cupcake walk. As with any
outdoor activity involving food, a
few pesky flies were present and
volunteers kept them away by
waving "frisbee fans."
At the painting table covered
in brown craft paper, the "bub-
bles" were round paper plates.

with gooey icing gets messy. The
librarians placed a small inflat-
able pool filled with water on site
so kids could easily clean up.
Russel and Valerie Russ of
Macclenny were enjoying the
event with their young children,
Rebekah, Riley, Robert and
Rocklund, who enthusiastically
tried out all the activities.
Early morning temperatures
soared quickly into the 90s and
Mr. Russ finally sought out the
bottled water. He then chilled for
a while under the tent with the
kids.
"Our family participated in the
library's children's programs last
summer and really enjoyed it. We
always take them into the library
after the programs so they can
browse and check out books," he
said.
"My favorite was the bucket
race," said his daughter Rebekah.
"It only took me about to trips
back and forth before I filled the
bucket, but it felt like ten thou-
sand because it was so hot!"


Kids got to doodle to their heart's
content with tempera paint, us-
ing the plates and even the craft
paper table cloth for a canvas.
Ms. Brown used hula hoops to
form a "ring of bubbles" on the
pavement and wrote a number
inside each ring with colored
chalk. Kids walked in a circled
around the ring to music.
When the music stopped, Ms.
Brown, armed with a portable
microphone, called out a number
she drew from a purple beach
bucket. Whoever was standing
on the corresponding circle got
to take a trip under the tent and
pick out a cupcake chocolate,
vanilla or lemon.
"We didn't follow a specific
program for this event," said li-
brarian April Teel. "Brown just
thought all this up and it's been
wonderful. So many kids were
here when we arrived this morn-
ing we actually had to start the
event early."

coincidence, they stumbled on
property for sale with established
greenhouses built originally for
hydroponic crops off SR 121 just
south of the Georgia state line.
The owner was happy to
sell the farm, but advised them
against growing tomatoes.
"He told us that hydroponic
tomatoes had to be picked twice
a day, every single day, for nine
months straight," said Mr. Fran-
cis. "It was just too much work
and that was why he switched to
herbs, which are picked only two
or three times a week."
The Francises decided on
herbs.
They closed the deal on the
property, moved in on a Friday
night, picked herbs all weekend
and made their first delivery to
a wholesale vendor the following
Monday.
"We've been running ever
since," said Mr. Francis.
Twinn Bridges Herb Farm
has come a long way during its
13 years. The Francises recently
applied to be part of a three-year
program sponsored by Michelle
Obama that helps small farmers
connect with local markets.
The grant they received
will fund the construction of a
new greenhouse and the work
should begin soon. Mr. Francis is
pleased.
"I figured, hey, I pay my taxes,
so why not get some benefit from
it?" he said.
