Arrested

for theft

outside

Walmart
A Sanderson woman is in
custody charged with a strong-
arm robbery early on July 5 in
the parking lot of the Walmart
Supercenter in Macclenny.
LaShawn Farmer, 20, turned
herself in to police later that day
after re-
turning a
wallet and
contents
belonging
to Chris-
tine Batten
of Baldwin.
She told
investiga-
tors she
found the
wallet in
the park-
ing lot, a LaShawn Farmer
version
that contradicts statements by
two women who were with her
at the time.
Amber Fields, 19, and
Brooklyn Tilger, 18, both of
Middleburg, said Ms. Farmer
approached Ms. Batten while
the latter was loading groceries
into her vehicle about 1:oo am
and pulled the wallet from the
victim's pants pocket.
Ms. Batten told Deputy
Chris Walker she then chased
the suspect to another vehicle,
where following a brief struggle,
Ms. Farmer slammed a door on
her head. She fell to the ground
and the second vehicle sped off
south on SR 228.
The victim noted the license
number and the car was traced
to Ms. Fields' father, who
later that morning arranged
by phone to bring her and the
second witness to the sheriffs
department.
Chief investigator Chuck
Brannan said Ms. Fields and
Ms. Tilger insisted they were
unaware beforehand of the
robbery and they will not be
charged. A third occupant of
the car, believed to be the sus-
pect's brother Marlin Farmer of
Sanderson, is being sought for
questioning.
After the incident, the wom-
en said they drove Ms. Farmer
back to her residence north of
Sanderson, and they refused
her request to use stolen credit
cards in the purse to get cash.
The suspect also allegedly
threatened to harm them if they
cooperated with police.
Investigator Brannan said
Ms. Farmer and the others had
the evening before been to Jack-
sonville to watch fireworks, and

NEFSH fireworks show
Despite a light drizzle that intensified just before the fireworks display, hundreds turned out for Northeast Florida
State Hospital's annual Independence Day celebration July 3 on the hospital grounds south of Macclenny. The
event featured live music hosted by Josie Davis, festival foods like the fried Oreo cookie being eaten by Drew Nor-
man above, bounce houses, slide, train rides, an obstacle course and rockwall for the children; vendor booths and
antique tractors. Also pictured is Gina Harris distributing tickets for the kids activities. Proceeds from the event
benefit programs for patients of the state mental health facility.


State revenue


rise predicted

JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com


Estimates showing more gas
taxes, sales taxes and other rev-
enue from the state may be all but
useless due to the yet unknown
impact of the Gulf oil spill on tour-
ism through the rest of the year.
According to figures released in
late June from the Florida Depart-
ment of Revenue's Office of Tax
Research and based on the March
2010 General Revenue Estimating
Conference, Baker County could
receive about $445,000 more this
year and the City of Macclenny
about $41,000 more.
The biggest projected windfalls
for each entity $190,181 and
$28,748 came from Local Op-
tion Fuel Taxes, a six-cent levy on
motor and diesel fuel. Neither the
city nor the county have an addi-
tional one to five-cent tax on mo-
tor fuel only.
Revenues from communica-
tion services taxes are estimated
to fall for the city and county gov-
ernments by more than $50,000
combined, however.


Budget cycles primer

Government budgets run
on cycles that don't conform
to the January to December
calendar year. The cycles
are staggered because the
Florida Legislature devel-
ops spending plans based
on Congress's budget, while
municipalities like Baker
County and the City of Mac-
clenny base much of their
spending on the state bud-
get. Here's a breakdown:

* Local budgets run from
October to September.
* Florida's budget runs
Julyto June.
* The Congressional bud-
get runs October to Sep-
tember.


But each estimate carries a large caveat they don't include any
fiscal impacts of events occurring subsequent to the estimating con-
ference, like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
And while the full economic impact of the disaster is difficult to
predict, last month University of Central Florida economist Dr. Sean
Snaith released a report estimating the damage to Florida's $740
billion economy at $10.9 billion. He assumed a 50 percent drop in
tourism and related spending on the state's western coast from the
Panhandle to the Keys.

FCAT writing scores here rise dramatically


BCHS students post gains;

other grade levels are mixed


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Baker County students tak-
ing the FCAT writing test this
year showed significant gains
over last year's scores, accord-
ing to test results released last
week by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education.
The percentage of tenth
graders scoring at or above
grade level on the Florida Com-
prehensive Assessment Test, or
FCAT, writing exam increased
the most from 64 percent in
2009 to 90 percent this year.
The portion of fourth grad-
ers doing so jumped 15 percent,
and among eight graders the
share scoring at or above grade
level rose three percent.
"We are especially pleased
with our writing scores," said
Superintendent Sherrie Raul-
erson this week. "Last year we
had one student receive a score
of 6, which is the highest level
possible. This year we had 21
students earn a 6."
Students scoring 3 or above
are considered performing on
grade level.


FCAT scores also increased,
though less dramatically, on the
science test taken by fifth and
eleventh graders.
The younger group's per-
centage of students scoring at
or above grade level rose six
percent to 47 percent of fifth
graders. The portion of juniors
at the high school scoring at or
above grade level rose from 30
percent to 37 percent.
Other district-wide results
from the 2010 FCAT were
mixed.
Fifth graders had declines in
reading but gains in math, and
fourth graders displayed the
opposite.
However, sixth, seventh,
ninth and tenth graders posted
gains in both areas, while third
and eighth graders slipped
slightly in math and reading,
compared to scores from 2009.
"Overall, our school district
continues to make gains and
show continuous growth in stu-
dent achievement," said the su-
perintendent. "We are very ex-
cited about the upward trends
and are proud of all our schools

and their scores."
Among the district's two el-
ementary schools, Macclenny El-
ementary students outperformed
Westside Elementary in reading
- 83 to 80 percent of students at
or above grade level and West-
side topped Macclenny in on the
math portion of the test by six
percentage points.
Compared with last year's
scores, Macclenny Elementary
had one point rise in reading and
three points in math, but West-
side slid four percentage points in
reading and five points in math.
Keller Intermediate's fourth
graders had four percent fewer
students score at or above grade


level than last year, but four per-
cent more did so on the math
portion. The school's fifth grad-
ers showed the opposite trend,
with a one percent rise in reading
and one percent drop in math.
Middle school students gained
in all areas, except eighth grade
reading, math and science scores,
which fell by four percent or less.
High school students im-
proved FCAT scores across the
board, compared to 2009.
Tenth grade reading scores
jumped six percent and math
scores by four percent. The per-
cent of eleventh graders scoring
a 3 or above improved from 30
to 37 on the science test. Tenth
graders gained six points in read-


ing and four points in math.
"These scores validate that
our instructional programs are
producing positive results," Ms.
Raulerson said. "We look forward
to continuing improvement at all
levels throughout the district.
With the help of our community,
parents, students, and teachers,
we will continue to focus on con-
stantly improving and analyzing
our data to meet the needs of
each and every student. There
is ongoing professional devel-
opment at every school that ad-
dresses best teaching practices
and keeps teachers abreast of the
most current research and teach-
ing standards."


Modest rise in state revenues


(From page 1
Regardless, the city and county
commissions must adopt spend-
ing plans for the coming 2010-11
fiscal year by September 30, the
end of the 2009-10 fiscal year.
Both local budgets rely heavily
on cash from Tallahassee as well
as local property taxes and grant
dollars.
Property Appraiser Tim Sweat
submitted the new tax roll to the
state this week.
He said the afternoon of July 2
that the overall value of property
county-wide dropped about $77
million from 2008 to 2009.
Sales and real estate data from
last year determine property val-
ues on which 2010 calendar year
tax bill's are based.
Mr. Sweat clarified though
that exemptions for homesteaded
or agricultural property weren't
reflected in the overall decline in
value.
"Taxable value is different," he
said, adding that the loss in tax-
able value could reach about $60
million.
"It's not near as bad as we
thought," he said.
The estimate is still 10 times
higher than the loss in taxable
value experienced last year.
Should property tax rates re-
main at current levels, the loss in
taxable value could mean more
than $650,000 in combined
revenue losses for the county,
city, school district and hospital
authority.
City Manager Gerald Dopson
said he expects Macclenny's loss
in property tax dollars about
$40,000 to be offset by the
projected rise in gas and sales
taxes and other expenses no lon-
ger in the city's budget.
He said the final roughly
$40,000 annual garbage truck
payment and another $50,000
spent this year for a sludge-haul-
ing truck won't appear in the
2010-11 spending plans.
"We're just pulling some fig-
ures together now and it looks
like we might be able to hold our
own," he said.
County Commissioners said

stopped at Walmart on their way
back. Ms. Farmer allegedly spot-
ted Ms. Batten in a checkout line
and noted she placed her wallet
in her pants pocket.
The Middleburg women said
they met the suspect via the
MySpace social network.
Sometime Monday morning,
Ms. Farmer used identification
in the wallet to find Ms. Batten's
residence and left it there, minus
an estimated $100, before driv-
ing back to Macclenny to the
sheriffs office where she claimed
she found it in the parking lot.
"She tried to act like she was
a good Samaritan and wanted to
return it," said Investigator Bran-
nan. "We arrested her on the ba-
sis of statements by the victim
and the two others with her at
the time."
The only discrepancy in Ms.
Batten's statements was she ini-
tially believed Ms. Farmer was a
male.
The suspect was arrested in
February 2009 for aggravated
assault and cocaine possession.
She also has a record as a juvenile
dating back to 2004, including
another aggravated assault and
fighting while a student at Baker
High.


they expect another tough bud-
get year and would support dip-
ping into the county's roughly $8
million in reserves to balance any
shortfall.
County Manager Joe Cone
added that savings could be found
in a number of departments that
aren't on pace to spend all of their
2009-10 allocations. The leftover
funds could be carried forward
into the new fiscal year.


He also pointed to lower costs
for dirt road maintenance pro-
jected from a handful of paving
projects either finished or ex-
pected to be completed this year.
Once local taxing authority's
approve their 2010-11 budgets
and accompanying property tax
rates, Mr. Sweat's office will send
out tax bills, which typically ar-
rive in November.

A decadent way


to spend July 4th


-hot dog stuffing


"We are at
the epicenter of
competitive eat-
ing," declares
an ESPN com-
mentator.


MY SII

THE MV
ROBERT G


That can
only mean one thing. I am watch-
ing the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating
Contest from Coney Island.
In my house, this is a July 4th
tradition. Some people blow up
fireworks, some grill in the back-
yard, some go to the races in Day-
tona. My family gathers around
the television and watches weird
looking people shove hot dog af-
ter hot dog down their necks.
Fifty-four to be exact.
That was this year's winning
number that Joey Chestnut, the
four time reigning champ, was
able to stomach. Chestnut was a
machine. After the first minute,
he was to dogs ahead of his near-
est competitor, Tim "Eater X"
Janus.
"It's all about stomach capac-
ity and hand speed," one of the
commentators intoned, as if he
was talking about the Wimbledon
final or analyzing Derek Jeter's
batting prowess.
These guys get into it and treat
it like it was a real sport. That's
what I like about it. There are
even world rankings.
Which means that there is an
actual eating tour. There is and
it is sanctioned by the Interna-
tional Federation of Competitive
Eating.
Some 40,000 people watched
Chestnut devour his way to the
MustardYellow Belt and $20,000
prize money. He was way off the
pace of his 68-dog world record
and seemed to slow down a little
in the middle of the contest after
realizing he had it won.


His chief com-
DE OF petition the past
few years, Japa-
STTER nese eater Tak-
eru Kobayashi,
ERARD who holds five
of the Mustard
Yellow Belts, was not in the com-
petition. He is feuding with the
IFOCE because he competes in
events they don't sanction.
With Kobayashi on the side-
lines, it was virtually certain that
Chestnut would win unless he
suffered a reversal of fortune. If
the dogs come back up, the eater
is disqualified.
Though I "watch" this event
each year, I have a hard time ac-
tually watching. It's disgusting
to say the least to see these guys
and girls, shove these dogs al-
most whole down their throats.
It makes me pause and won-
der. Where do these dogs go after
the competition? I don't want to
be gross or anything, but is there
a vomitorylike in ancient Roman
times. During Roman feasts, eat-
ers would sit an inch from the
table and ate until their stomachs
touched, and then visit the vomi-
tory so that they could eat some
more.
Or do they actually digest
them?
I doubt that. In the first six
minutes of the ten minute com-
petition, Chestnut had consumed
12,000 calories. That means that
by the end he'd probably ingested
20,000 calories. I can't imagine
those staying with you.
Today I plan to grill some dogs
of my own. I assure you, I won't
try to shove 50 of them down my
throat, although I do plan for my
backyard to be "the epicenter of
non-competitive eating."

LETTER TO THE
EDITOR



A Hire from

N the locals

Dear Editor:
I have lived in Baker County
since 1981 and I take issue with
some members of the county
commission who seem to be of
the opinion there is no one quali-
fied here to be county manager.
I have had the pleasure of
knowing many intelligent and
capable people who were raised
right here. Judges, teachers, busi-
ness people, academics people
9 A holding responsible positions
in county, city, state and federal
government.
WARD For Baker County commis-
sioners to say they have to go out-
L.L side the county to find a qualified
county manager is an insult to
both the citizens and taxpayers.
I hope members of the com-
mission take note of the latest
N.A, poll in The Press, where over 90o
,I percent of respondents also agree
that the next county manager
l~ .should also be a taxpaying citizen
SI !of Baker County.

John Bellovich
Macclenny
[The poll referred to by Mr. Bellov-
ich asked this question: Should the
next county manager be required
to live in Baker County? It did not
address the issue of whether the
candidates) should be residents of
the county when they apply for the
position.]

Spiderman, Spiderman,
friendly neighborhood Spider-
man ...
There reallyis a neighborhood
Spiderman as the lyrics from the
song imply, and he's closer then
you may think.
This one doesn't reside on the
pages of a Marvel comic book or
swing his way across the video
screen. This Spiderman is right
here in Macclenny and stands
guard at the corner of Martin Lu-
ther King Drive and South Blvd.
West.
Or hangs, actually, from a tree
in this case. Which is more what
you'd expect from a guy whose
physical abilities were trans-
formed by a bite from a geneti-
cally altered arachnid at least
in the recent Hollywood version
(the original Spiderman had to
run experiments in the lab to
devise attachable wrist gadgets
to create and shoot out his web-
bing).
In the mid-6os, my brother
and his friends were all crazy for
the superhero and spent their
time swinging from tree limbs
and monkey bars and trying to
devise ways to make string shoot
across the room on command.
Owning a Spiderman costume
was every boy's greatest wish
and those not lucky enough to
acquire one improvised as best
they could.
Being among all those Spider-
man wanna-bes was much like
another media frenzy I experi-
enced later when martial arts
master Bruce Lee's Enter The
Dragon hit the Big Screen in
1973.
The next day and throughout
the months that followed, every
time you saw a teenage boy, my
brother included, he was attack-
ing a water fountain, a trash can,
a car, the family dog anything in
his line of vision, with a barrage
of karate chops and side kicks.
Spiderman debuted in 1962 in
one of Marvel's comic books en-
titled Amazing Fantasy, which,


shot deal as the pub-
4 lisher believed the
character didn't have a
prayer for success and
the comic book was fail-
ing anyway.
When sales of the
book unexpectedly
surged, Marvel quickly
capitalized on the
character's popular-
ity by launching a new
book series called The
Amazing Spiderman. It
became a runaway suc-
cess.

comes great responsibil-
ity" as the superhero's
personal credo goes.

McGuire's supply of custom-
made Spiderman costumes was
stolen from the set.
Sony Corporation, which was
backing the movie financially,
offered a $25,000 reward. None
were ever returned. I guess the
way wearing that costume makes
a guy feel is something money
simply can't buy.
I used to have a Cat Woman

Suffice it to say, I am not Halle

Still, I get a kick out of seeing
old Spidey hanging around the

away, on a playground, there's a
big green dragon. Maybe Super-

ATVs stolen after

shed locks broken


An Orange Park man reported
to the sheriffs department on
July 1 that two ATVs were stolen
from a locked shed on property
he owns off Noel Rd. near Sand-
erson.
David Marshall told Deputy
Koty Crews the last time he
checked on the property was in
January. The officer noted two
locks were knocked off a garage-
type door.
The ATVs were a yellow 2005
Bombardi and a green 2005 Po-
laris. No loss value was given.
A neighbor told police he ob-
served a brown Chevrolet truck
on the property about two weeks
earlier, and that the vehicle left
quickly when the occupant or oc-
cupants took note of him.


In other reports:
Casey Barnes reported July
28 that vehicles belonging to him
and his wife were burglarized
overnight, though they were be-
lieved to be locked and there was
no sign of forced entry.
He told Deputy John Hardin a
duffel bag with hunting accesso-
ries was missing from his vehicle,
and a GPS system and sunglasses
were taken from his wife's car.
The couple lives on Eastwood
Dr. southwest of Macclenny.
Robin Crews called police
after going to his semi-truck
parked on Cardinal Lane in Mac-
clenny and finding the driver side
window smashed. That occurred
overnight on July 1.

Driver rear-ended on S. SR 228
The 2007 Chevy driven by Ashley Croy, 26, of Glen St. Mary was rear-ended the rainy afternoon of July 2 while
yielding to oncoming traffic in an attempt to turn east on Barber Brothers Road from CR 228 S. Only minor injuries
were reported from the crash. According to Deputy Patrick McGauley's report of the crash, a 2003 Nissan driven by
Glen St. Mary resident Brandy Barron, 22, struck the Chevy traveling about 30 mph after the vehicle in front of her
pulled off the road to drive around the stopped vehicle. The accident occurred about 2:40 pm.



Boyfriend holiday arrest

Attacks Glen woman, her daughter


Deputies were called to a
number of domestic violence
incidents over the July 4 holiday
weekend, most involving live-in
couples.
Robert Rhoden, 42, was ar-
rested for aggravated assault and
two counts of domestic battery
following an incident late on July
4 off Aunt Mary Harvey Rd. west
of Glen St. Mary.
The suspect's girlfriend, Tracy
Motes, 38, said he became violent
after they returned to their apart-
ment from a party about 11:oo,
and told Deputy Tony Norman
that Mr. Rhoden was intoxicated
and choked both her and her
17-year-old daughter when she
intervened.
She also accused the boyfriend
of striking her several times about
the face.
Both the mother and daugh-
ter, along with landlord Gene
Steves, said Mr. Rhoden threat-
ened them with a knife before he
fled on foot. He was later located
on the front porch of a residence
nearby and surrendered to po-
lice.
Deputy Norman noted that
the suspect had an open knife in


his pocket.
In other incidents:
Kelly Walton, 34, was arrest-
ed for aggravated assault with a
.38 caliber pistol during an argu-
ment with husband Roy Walton,
29, at their residence off Tommy
Rd. near Glen St. Mary the after-
noon of July 28.
The husband said Ms. Walton
picked up the pistol but she did
not point it at him.
Jeffery Doss, 22, was booked
for aggravated domestic battery
the morning of June 28 follow-
ing an argument with girlfriend
Heather Crews, 21, at their resi-
dence off Dog Fennel Lane near
Glen St. Mary.
Deputy Johnny Hodges said
Mr. Doss admitted to grabbing
Ms. Crews by the hair, throwing
her to the ground and slapping
her face and head. She is two
months pregnant, and Deputy
Hodges notified the Department
of Children and Families because
their child was also present.
A criminal complaint filed
July 3 names Daniel McAllister,
36, in an attack on girlfriend
Melanie Anderson, 41, at their
residence off Johnny Harvey Rd.


near Sanderson.
The girlfriend told Deputy Earl
Lord she was choked, thrown to
the ground and struck about the
face during an argument about
6:oo pm.
Mr. McAllister was gone when
officers arrived, and a friend said
he drove the suspect to Cuz's
Store in Sanderson.
A complaint names Rodney
Brantley, 46, of Sanderson for
battery of James Gazes, 22, of
Macclenny during a fight early
on July 4 after they returned
from a mud bogging event near
St. George, GA.
The victim's girlfriend, who is
also Mr. Brantley's daughter, told
Deputy Norman both men were
intoxicated at the time. They
fought after the suspect became
irate over an alleged beating of
his daughter by Mr. Gazes.
SA 33-year-old male patient at
Northeast Florida State Hospital
is accused in an alleged attack on
a female patient, 58, in a cafeteria
the afternoon of June 25.
The incident was reported
three days later. She was alleg-
edly struck in the face.


Man jailed for felony fleeing


Police arrested a Jacksonville
man for felony fleeing following
a chase on US 90 between Sand-
erson and Olustee the evening of
July 4.
Deputy Earl Lord said he was
enroute to Olustee on a distur-
bance call about 6:30 when he
met an eastbound 2009 Toyota
that matched the description of
one containing a suspect in the
incident.
The officer turned around on
the Toyota and it sped up before
pulling off to the road shoulder
then making a u-turn to head
west back toward Olustee. The
fleeing vehicle reached speeds of
85 mph on rain-slick pavement
and passed another vehicle in a
no passing zone before coming to
a halt at the address of the distur-
bance.
Deputy Lord arrested the
driver, 39-year-old Kenneth
Wilcox, who was described as
the husband of Winifred Bones,
48, of Jacksonville, the vehicle's
owner.
Mr. Wilcox was also charged
with reckless driving.


A similar charge was filed
against Daniel Mock, 41, of
Jacksonville after he changed
directions while being pursued
by Deputy Patrick McGauley the
morning of July 4.
The officer said he noted the
driver of a 2003 Chevrolet pickup
was not wearing a seat belt south-
bound on SR 228 near Walmart.
The pickup made a u-turn then
accelerated northbound a short
distance before stopping.
The same deputy stopped a
1991 Toyota on SR 121 south near
Mud Lake Rd. the morning of
June 28 and arrested the driver,
Franciso Aguilar, 25, of Chief-
land, FL on an Alachua County
warrant for battery.
The driver, who presented
a Mexican passport for identi-
fication, was also ticketed for
speeding and having no driver's
license.
Deputy McGauley arrested
James Stepp, 52, of Jackson-
ville on a warrant from St. Johns
County for failure to appear in
court on a charge of contracting
without certification.


Mr. Stepp was a passenger in a
vehicle stopped the afternoon of
July 4 on SR 228.
Deputy Kevin Jenkins ar-
rested Matthew Lindsey, 23, of
Glen St. Mary after learning he
was wanted in Duval County on
traffic charges.
The officer confronted Mr.
Lindsey on George Hodges Rd.
the afternoon of June 30.
Mariah Trosper, 18, of Glen
was taken into custody after
Deputy Chris Walker learned of a
Duval County warrant for grow-
ing marijuana. The arrest took

Two Macclenny men were
arrested July 4 for looting a resi-
dence off CR 125 south of Glen St.
Mary of valuable coins, jewelry
and prescription medication.
One of the collections, con-
sisting of 700 silver coins in
mint condition, was valued at
$25,000. The total loss, includ-
ing another set of 50 rare pen-
nies worth $4000, was placed at
$30,724.
Victim Pamela Rollyson told
police she returned to her resi-
dence that afternoon about 4:oo
and found Brandon Hartley, 27,
and Andrew Lewis, 31, in a rear
bedroom where they were replac-
ing an air conditioning unit. The
two fled when she called police.
Deputy Steven Smith said it
appeared the intruders removed
the unit to gain entry and an elec-
tric drill was found lying atop it.
Police later caught up with
the suspects at the Citgo station
on CR 125 near Interstate 10 and
arrested them after questioning.
Both admitted to being in the
house, and Deputy Smith noted
in his report they appeared to be
intoxicated with slurred speech.
Once at county jail, the sus-
pects declined to be interviewed
on tape, however. They are
charged with burglary and grand
theft.
The stolen property, which
also included a wedding band
valued at $800, gold coins worth
$924 and 120 prescription mus-
cle relaxers, was not recovered as
of early this week.
Ms. Rollyson said she was

cases of credit card fraud, one of
them occurring in Panama while
the victim was there.
Dearl Scarboro of Jackson-
ville said his card was used 16
times in the Central American
country between June 16-23
at ATM machines, and his Vy-
star Credit Union account was
drained of $2290.
He was in Panama at the time,
and had the debit card in his wal-
let. He reported the loss on June
28.
Robert Harris of Macclenny
said a credit card from Jackson-
ville Metro Credit Union was in
his possession when it was used
to make $700 in purchases from
several locations.
He reported the fraud to police
on June 29.
A customer at Food Lion in
Macclenny presented a bogus
$100 bill to a cashier the after-
noon of June 30.
The customer told police he
obtained the bill along with oth-
ers when he cashed a pay check
at Wachovia Bank in Macclenny

that Mr. Hartley's vehicle was
parked outside and he was not at
his residence. She then entered

BAKER COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD



Wants to retain its impact fees

District used up $1 million already remitted


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The county's proposed mora-
torium on impact fees cash
paid by developers for roads and
schools doesn't have the sup-
port of school board members.
The school district has re-
ceived close to a million dollars
in impact fees during the last
five years, but those funds will
be wiped out by the time school
starts, district finance manager
Marcelle Richardson said dur-
ing the school board's afternoon
workshop on the matter June 21.
The fees can only be used to
increase classroom space, more
of which is needed to comply with
the final phase of implementing
the voter-approved constitu-
tional amendment limiting class
sizes.
Moreover, Ms. Richardson
said, cash from the state for new
construction this fiscal year has
dried up as well.
"There's no more," she said of
Public Education Capital Outlay
[PECO] funds. "There's no more


class size money. There's noth-
ing."
The district has received more
than $800,000 in recent years to
assist in complying with the class
size limits.
Faced with additional de-
mands for classroom space and
less money to build it, school
board members opted to oppose
the moratorium.
The county levies a $1500
transportation impact fee and
$2160 school impact fee, the
latter of which is delivered to
the district. However, the Baker
County Commission has sole
authority in approving and waiv-
ing impact fees for developments
within the unincorporated areas
of the county.
The school district's planning
consultant Janis Fleet said a
moratorium similar to the one-
year measure proposed by the
county commission has yielded
little benefit in other jurisdictions
like Nassau County.
"They did not feel it did any-
thing to spur the economic de-
velopment they were hoping for,"
she told the school board.


Developers building homes
here must also pay a roughly
$11,000 per unit school concur-
rency fee from which impact fees
are deducted.
Furthermore, Ms. Fleet said
that impact fees, when spread
over a 30-year mortgage, only ac-
count for about $11 a month. She
based the figure on a $200,000
home with a $1500 impact fee at
roughly 6 percent interest.
"We're not talking about the
impact fee making the difference
of getting a house or not getting a
house," she said.
The district has taken in
$964,624 in impact fees since
2006. The funds fell drastically
from $324,565 in 2007-08 to
$89,698 the following year. The
revenue topped $90,000 this
year, according to Ms. Richard-
son.
"We needed this money to
build space to take care of stu-
dents we anticipated getting,"
commented board member Paul
Raulerson. "Don't we still need
this money?"
"We do," said Ms. Richardson.
"It's going to run out this sum-


Vows to find lost inventory


The principal of Baker County
Middle School says he's confi-
dent that thousands of dollars in
missing inventory will be located
during an upcoming room-to-
room search, and laid the blame
for the discrepancy on last year's
classroom shift.
The school notified the sher-
iffs department on June 28
about the missing inventory of
nine computers, projectors, soft-
ware packages and even a mobile
science lab.
Vice principal Gary Pelham,
who initiated the report, is quot-
ed as saying he doesn't believe


the property is stolen, but "sim-
ply misplaced."
His boss, Principal David Da-
vis, agrees.
"What we're dealing with here
is a massive shift of inventory
last year when over ten days we
moved everything into the new
two-story building," said Mr. Da-
vis. "I'm confident all of it's here
somewhere; we'll just have to get
to work finding it."
All property is tagged with in-
ventory numbers, and Mr. Davis
says the only way to accurately
account for it is "put on our ten-
nis shoes and blue jeans" and

Inventories are usually taken
before the start of a school year,

He indicated the most valuable
items are computer software,

original pricing. Mr. Davis says it
is locked up in a safe.

mer."
Developers, however; have ar-
gued that property tax revenues
from a new home should mean
more to the county and school
district than a one-time fee.
"If you talk to these develop-
ers," said school board member
Dwight Crews, "they're saying
to me, wouldn't you rather have
a house on the tax rolls forever
than not have it built because of
an impact fee. That's the things
they're saying to me ... I don't
know if I agree, but that's what
they're saying. How do I answer
that?"
County commissioners began
discussing a one-year moratori-
um in May and decided it would
need to include both fees to be
effective in spurring economic
development, particularlyin con-
struction.
After the school board's work-
shop, during which the board
expressed its opposition to the
moratorium, Ms. Richardson
and the school district's facilities
director Denny Wells attended
the county commission's meeting
the same evening, indicating the
school board's lack of support.
But because the school board
had not voted on the measure
during the workshop, the county
commission tabled the matter
until an official action could take
place. However, some commis-
sioners have stated they would
not support the moratorium un-
less the school board agreed.

Beating the odds! Focused on
exerci se...


KELLEY LANNIGAN

When Nick Brown was diag-
nosed with cystic fibrosis at two
months old, his doctor predicted
he would not live to see 15.
Cystic fibrosis, or CF, is an in-
herited disease that causes thick,
sticky mucus to build up in the
lungs and digestive tract. It is one
of the most common chronic lung
diseases in children and young
adults, and often results in early
death. The disease is progressive
and for now, there is no cure.
Nick beat the odds, making
it to his 25th birthday. But last
October after a serious illness,
his lung function was reduced
to only 20 percent of a normal
person's.
Doctors advised him to put
his name on the donor list for a
double lung transplant. Such a
transplant for victims of CF is
not a cure, but a last-ditch effort
to prolong life when there are no
other options.
But lung transplant surgery
was the last thing Nick wanted.
"Nick just couldn't accept
that," said Amanda, his wife of
two years and also his biggest ad-
vocate and supporter.
He decided to do what he'd
always done regarding his condi-
tion face it and fight it.
Exercise can be a key compo-
nent in improving the lung func-
tion of CF victims. He wasn't able
to work, but even in his severely
weakened condition, Nick de-
cided to hit the gym.
The Browns, who live in Bry-
ceville, could not afford a mem-
bership to Anytime Fitness in
Macclenny, but when the com-
pany learned of his situation, it
agreed to help.
Nick started exercising slowly,
gradually building up to two
hours daily, five days a week.
He walked on the treadmill and
worked with weights. As the
weeks slid by, his body and his
lung function changed dramati-
cally. Two months passed. The
next time Nick saw a doctor, spe-
cifically to check his status for a
transplant, the doctor examined
him, then asked, "What are you
doing here? You don't need a
transplant!"
Nick has been going to the
gym religiously since that time.
"It has saved me from a lung
transplant, at least for now," said
Nick. "It's helped with everything.
I sleep better and definitely have
more energy."
On August 20, he and Aman-
da will participate in Bowling for
Breath in Jacksonville, a fund-
raising event they have helped
coordinate to educate the public
and raise money for CF research.

Early years
Born at NAS JAX hospital,
Nick was only two months old
when he was re-admitted be-
cause of "failure to thrive." The
little boy was obviously sick and
in distress, but doctors didn't
have a clue what was wrong.
After being transferred to
Nemours, he was determined to
be suffering from cystic fibrosis.
A child may develop CF if
both parents carry the gene for

the disease. They may not have
symptoms themselves, but can
pass the disorder on to their off-
spring.
"It's basically the luck of the
draw," said Nick. "Unfortunately,
I wasn't lucky."
His life has been filled with
daily breathing treatments as
many as five nebulizers, antibi-
otics, enzymes and physical ther-
apy call "tapping" to help loosen
the sticky mucus that builds up in
the lungs. A special vest with air
hoses also helps dislodge mucus.
CF doesn't just affect the
lungs. It interferes with digestion
so victims must ingest a high pro-
tein, extremely high-calorie diet
just to maintain a normal body
weight. The powerful antibiot-
ics necessary to fight respiratory
infections can negatively impact
bone development. Kidney and
liver function may falter.
Because he was always com-
pletely compliant with his sched-
ules for breathing treatments and
medications, Nick survived where
others did not. He acknowledges
this behavior probably got him as
far as he is today. He also hid his
condition from public knowledge,
not wanting anyone to think him
different from others.
"We started dating in high
school and dated six months be-

fore I ever knew about his condi-
tion," said Amanda. "But there
were things that just weren't
adding up. I knew something was
really wrong and began to fear he
had cancer, for Heaven's sake.
"Finally, I confronted him and
he told me and you could just
see it in his face he thought I'd
surely leave him because of it."
But Amanda wasn't going any-
where. It was a lot for a 17-year-
old to take in, but after some soul
searching, she decided it didn't
matter. She made it her business
to learn everything she could
about the strange disorder that
afflicted the wonderful guy who
would become her future hus-
band.
"She's special," said Nick. "It's
not every girl who would have
accepted the situation like she
did."
Today, Nick is a living testimo-
ny that a spirit of determination
is a powerful tool for overcoming
great odds. Having a supportive
wife and family is a vital part of
the equation as well.
"Nick has always been a fight-
er," said Amanda. "After he was
diagnosed, he didn't even have
his first hospitalization for CF
until he was 15, the age doctors
said he'd never live to see."

The future
Nick and Amanda are hopeful.
Four years from now, a special
drug called Vertex, currently un-
dergoing clinical trials, could be
available to treat CF.
The research is promising.
Vertex triggers a modification
process that directly impacts
and helps correct the faulty gene
responsible for the crippling dis-
order.
Nick is living for that day and
the promise of all the days to fol-
low. He wants to go back to work.
He and Amanda someday want
to start a family. His challenge
for now is to remain as healthy
as possible and his new commit-
ment to exercise will no doubt
buy him some measure of guar-
anteed success.
"So many people take breath-
ing for granted. I'm grateful for
the results exercise has afforded
me," he said. "I'd like to see doc-
tors stress the exercise compo-
nent of managing this disorder
more. I think it would go along
way in helping people cope."
"We've lost people, good peo-
ple, in Baker County to this dis-
ease recently," said Amanda. "We
know of others who are suffer-
ing from it now. That's why this
fund raiser, Bowling for Breath,
is so important. CF doesn't have
the big budgets to advertise like
breast cancer does. So many peo-
ple don't even know what it is. I
want to help change that."
Bowling for Breath will take
place Saturday, August 28, 10:oo
a.m. to 1:oo p.m. at Cassat's Batt
Bowl on 1838 Cassat Avenue.

Mother, son caught


stealing at Walmart

A mother and son were both named in warrants for shoplifting at the
Macclenny Walmart the afternoon of July 2.
A store security worker watched as Nick Bell, 28, of Glen St. Mary
allegedly concealed $82 in merchandise on his person and in the purse
belonging to Kimberly Bell, 44, of the same address.
The two were confronted as they attempted to leave the store about
3:30. Mr. Bell was ordered to remove the shirt he was wearing; it had
also been shoplifted.
In other arrests:
Kristopher Legg, 18, of Macclenny and a male age 18 and from Glen
St. Mary were charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana after
they were found walking on North Lowder about midnight on July 1.
Deputy Daryl Mobley said both had small baggies of pot in pants
pockets, and during questioning he noted he smelled a distinct odor of
marijuana on them.
Floyd Lyons, 67, was arrested for disorderly conduct when he re-
fused to calm himself following a disturbance at a residence off CR 23-
A north that he shares with his mother.
Lila Lyons, 86, called police just after midnight on July 3 because
she said her son was being destructive and out of control. Deputy Tony
Norman said the son was yelling at his mother and at him after he ar-
rived.
He was taken to Fraser Hospital for treatment of cuts on his arm
and back, and the officer said he was unruly toward employees there
as well.

Patriotic centennial fete at old i


KELLEY LANNIGAN

features@bakercountypress.com
Macclenny's Mclver Street was the scene
July 3 of the loo-year anniversary celebration
of Baker County's historic old jail.
A flag raising, the national anthem, guest
speakers, historic jail tours, an art exhibit and
a kid's play park were some of the featured
activities.
A variety of vendors hawking everything
from custom-decorated flip-flops and lo-
cal honey to tacos and barbeque occupied a
steady stream of visitors from lo:oo am until
4:00 pm.
"I think, overall, it went well and I'm
pleased with the turnout," said Sheldon Bea-
sley, a member of the Baker County Historic
Society and current acting president. The his-
toric society is housed in the county's original
jail building which underwent a major, grant-
funded renovation several years ago.
When the heat got to be a bit much, visi-
tors cooled off inside the nearby Macclenny
Woman's Club where members of the Baker
County Lion's Club were busy selling hotdogs
and iced tea.
"There's a one dollar chilling fee, to come
in, just so you know," teased Lion's Club
member Vince McDuffie as people gratefully
entered the cool confines looking for some
lunch.
A highlight of the celebration was the ad-
dress given by former Baker County school
superintendent Paula Barton, whose late fa-
ther Paul Thrift was sheriff 40 years ago. After
his election in 1966, the Thrift family moved
into the jail where they lived for the next seven
years. Paula was fourteen at the time.
She showed spectators a poster saved
from her father's 1966 campaign for sheriff
and laminated copies from the pages of The
Baker County Press that documented elec-
tion results and his letter of thanks to the
people that supported him. She also put on
his brown leather hat, saved from the days of
his campaign.

mansion" said Ms. Barton, laughing. "There
was a downstairs and an upstairs and a cook
Minnie, who later became a beloved part of
our family.
"The meal that Minnie used to make that
stands out in my mind is lima beans and rice,
ham hocks, cabbage and potato salad."
Ms. Barton told the crowd she could recall
the first night the family spent at the jail like it
was yesterday.
Her bedroom was on the side close to the
old courthouse, her brother's room on the
side by the cell block. There wasn't any air
conditioning and being June, it was hot, so
the windows were raised.
Sheriff Thrift, it seemed, had locked up a
few "highly intoxicated, respectable gentle-
men" from the community that night and
Ms. Barton could hear a lot of hollering. She
slipped into her brothers' room and they all
lay on the floor in the dark listening.
"There was no bad language used in our
home and the profanity we heard that night
was stuff our ears had never experienced," she
said.
Her father came in later, closed the win-
dows, put down a rotary fan to mask the pro-
fanity and promptly escorted young Paula
back to her room.
The next day the sheriff called a Thrift fam-
ily prayer meeting in the living room.
He explained that their life had changed
now that he was sheriff. Regardless of what
they would likely hear, profanity would never
be accepted in the family and the sheriff's
children needed to be a notch above other
children and must set an example.
"I can't say we always did, but he let us
know his expectations of our behavior were
high," Ms. Barton.
The Thrift kids, who had a strict curfew,
quickly learned that the jail had 17 stairs and
they memorized every creak. Also, the old
courthouse clock next door to the jail rang ev-
ery fifteen minutes. When it struck ten, they
knew they'd better be up those stairs and in
their rooms.
Ms. Barton loved hanging out in the radio
dispatch room because that's where she was
most likely to learn about or see any action


taking place.
"My daddy hired the first black sheriffs
deputy in Baker County, a fine man named
Frank Smith. He came in one day and went
back into the cell block to check on a prisoner.
He ran back, urgently saying to the dispatch-
er, "Get the high sheriff! Get the high sheriff."
"Mr. Smith had discovered one of the pris-
oners had hanged himself with a sheet," said
Ms. Barton. "It was the first time I ever heard
anyone refer to Daddy as "the high sheriff."'
Another vivid memory was seeing her fa-
ther arrive at the jail one day, dragging in a
handcuffed patient from the Northeast Flori-
da Hospital. Sheriff Thrift had been called to
Northeast Florida State Hospital to subdue
the patient who had somehow gotten a gun
and fatally shot one of the hospital's doctors.
"I remember their clothes were drenched
in blood," said Ms. Barton, "and the horrible
way the man spoke and behaved to my father.
At that moment, for the very first time, I saw
my father not simply as "Daddy," but as the
sheriff.
"I gained a great respect for the law and
for the sacrifices one makes to serve in that
role, as well as the sacrifices a sheriffs family
makes."
Ms. Barton closed her remarks by thank-
ing all those who serve in law enforcement for
the protection of the county's residents.
Prior to the jail's centennial celebration,
The Baker County Historical Society spon-
sored an art contest for middle and high
school students. The subject was historic
buildings in the county. Winners received $50
savings bonds from Mercantile Bank.
The first place middle school winner was
Shae Robinson. The high school winners
were: first place, Joseph Keen; second place,
Kristen Gray; third place, Sam Griffis. Honor-
able mentions were Aaron Dinkins, Brianna
Gray, Dawn Mack and Teresa Dutton.

7/28/1935 7/02/2004
On this day six years ago,
God came to take you home.
I can still remember that day;
We knew it was near.
I had prayed that I wouldn't be
in the room;
I didn't think I could breathe ifI
were.
God placed me and drew me
late...
I arrived notfive minutes late.
I went in, my heart so sad,
My breath seemed not there to
grab.
I looked upon your sweet, sweet
face
And knew you were with Grand-
ma and in God's grace.
The days since then have still
been sad.
God I didn't know it would hurt
this bad.
I thank you, Lord, for your
amazing grace,
For I can't wait to see her face.
My mother, my friend, my
heart

God saw you getting tired, and
a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around you,
and whispered "Come to me."
With tearful eyes we watched
you, and saw you pass away,
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove
to us
That He only takes the best!
LOVE,
HEYWOOD AND FAMILY

Thanks for all the wonderful
food, beautiful flowers and con-
tinuous prayers for our mother

Blue Cross grant expands hours

Health department to service hundreds more


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Blue Foundation for a Healthy Florida recently awarded to the Baker
County Health Department a grant that will expand hours of access to
health care for Baker County residents.
The one-year $95,790 grant will allow the health department to ex-
tend its hours of service two evenings a week and every other Saturday.
The money will also cover the salary of an additional nurse practitio-
ner
The extended hours of operation began July 6.
"This is an IMPACT grant, which stands for Improving Access to
Health Care," said Susan Wildes, assistant director of the Blue Founda-
tion for a Healthy Florida. "The grant to Baker County Health Depart-
ment should allow for a 20 percent increase in the number of patients
seen."
According to projections, that could cover 800 new patients and 300
existing patients seen during the expanded hours.
The Blue Foundation for a Healthy Florida is the philanthropic arm
of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. The foundation supports ef-
forts that improve access to quality health services, especially for the
uninsured and underprivileged Floridians.
The current focus for the IMPACT Health Care grants program is on
community-based health clinics and outreach programs.
Nurse practitioner Ruth Davis will be treating patients for acute
problems such as cold and flu, sprains, strains and rashes during the
new extended hours schedule.
Ms. Davis earned her degree from the Medical University of Kansas
with an emphasis in family practice. Before joining the Baker County
Health Department, she worked for the Veteran's Administration in
Milwaukee.
"My first day has been very pleasant with staff helping me get ad-
justed. Everyone here is so nice," said Ms. Davis. "The extended clinic
should really help out working folks who can't always easily get to the
doctor between eight and five during the day."
The extended clinic hours will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00
am to 8:00 pm and the second and fourth Saturdays of each month
from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Soul Food Bistro at Potter's House

like going back to Granny's kitchen


BOB GERARD
RESTAURANT REVIEWER
Yummmm!!
I just may have a new favorite
place to eat in Jacksonville.
Last week, my brother in law
Todd Norman suggested that my
wife and I try the Soul Food Bis-
tro at the The Potter's House on
Normandy Boulevard at the old
Normandy Mall.
"I thought The Potter's House
was a church," I said.
"Well it is," said Todd. "But
they also have a restaurant."
Do they ever. The Potter's
House has completely renovated
the old mall and renamed it King-
dom Plaza. The Soul Food Bistro
is just inside the door and worth
a visit. But you'd better come
hungry for home-cooked food.

There's nothing fancy at the Soul
Food Bistro, just plenty of deli-
cious country cooking. To quote
my wife Kelley, "somebody's
Granny is back in the kitchen."
The bistro is eat in or take out
and most entries fall in the $6.99
- $8.99 range. I noticed that most
of the regulars were getting their
meal to go but eating at the ta-
bles. It looked to me as if you get
a bigger portion that way.
It looks like a bistro should
- dark and quiet with tables and
booths, cafeteria style with a buf-
fet and daily specials.
I had the daily special, meat-
loaf, since it's a favorite. It comes
with mashed potatoes although
I opted for a second side order
instead. I got collard greens and
lima beans and a piece of coconut
cream pie.
Kelley had fried chicken, mac-
aroni and cheese and collards.
The meat loaf was delicious
with a tomato sauce glaze and
savory brown gravy, bell pep-


pers diced small and mixed in for
taste.
The fried chicken was also
very good in a simple batter just
like you'd make at home.
The sides were also very tasty.
The collards were well seasoned.
I don't normally like collards
but I took a chance because they
looked and smelled so good. I
was not disappointed.
The limas were also creamy
and well seasoned although it
was Kelley's mac and cheese that
was the star of the show. It was
cheesy and baked with an extra
layer of cheese on top.
We were going to take the co-
conut cream pie home with us,
but after taking one bite it was
irresistible.
If you are in the mood for re-
ally good food that tastes like
somebody's mama and grand-
mama would cook, this is the
place to go.
I know I'll be a repeat cus-
tomer.

10-under district title!


Baker County Little League's
girls lo-year-old and under all-
star softball team clinched an-
other district championship de-
feating St. Augustine, San Mateo
and Yulee in St. Augustine June
26, 28 and 3o.
The squad dispatched the host
team 8-4, San Mateo 15-2 two
days later and Yulee 16-9 to win
its second consecutive district
championship. They advance to
the sectional tournament in De-
bary July 17.
A win there will send the girls
to the state championships in
Key Largo July 23-24.
"In order to win these tour-
naments, you have to have good
pitching and put balls in play,
and we did a great job of both,"
said coach David Crummey.
Pitcher Kelsey Strickland al-
lowed no hits in the first matchup
against St. Augustine. That feat
was repeated by Allie Crummey
and relief pitcher Macy Jackson
against San Mateo.
In the championship game
Crummey and Strickland held
Yulee to 3 hits.
At the plate the all stars were
just as hot pushing across 38
runs in three ballgames.
Another highlight for the team
was a solo home run by Jackson
in the championship game that


sailed way out of left center at the
200-foot fence.
"We have a well-rounded team
this year, with big hitters along
with speed, and we can play
small ball with the best of them,"
said the coach. "If we continue to
progress and play as hard as we
did this past week we have an ex-
cellent shot at being there."
The league's 12-year-old and
under girls all-stars took the
district title July 2 by defeating a
very tough Yulee team 13-3.
The girls battled staying in the
winners bracket defeating Yulee,
St. Augustine, and Callahan.
The girls now advance to sec-
tional action July 17 in St. Augus-
tine.
