81st Year, Vol. 22 Winner of 10 state awards for journalism excellence in 2009


School

district

budget

at $57M

JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County School
Board unanimously approved
cutting property taxes by almost
half a million dollars September
7 and adopted a budget topping
$57 million for the district's
2010-11 fiscal year, which began
July 1.
The spending plan is about
$2.1 million more than the pre-
vious year's budget.
The largest portion of the
budget, the general fund, is
expected to grow by about
$2.8 million this year to
$42,394,677.
District finance chief Mar-
celle Richardson attributed
the increase to 18 new teachers
needed to comply with class
size limits imposed by voters in
2005 and codified in the state
constitution.
A referendum to loosen the

ARRA [American
Recovery and
Reinvestment Act]
funds helped out
tremendously.

limits will appear on the No-
vember 2 ballot. It needs 60
percent approval to pass.
The new school budget
also relies on about $6.2 mil-
lion from reserves to balance
proposed expenditures with
anticipated revenues. Roughly
$3.3 million is needed to bal-
ance general fund expenditures
and $2.9 million to balance the
capital projects fund.
The general fund is project-
ed to have about $4.4 million
left over at the end of the fis-
cal year on June 30, 2011. No
budget surplus is planned for
the roughly $5-million capital
projects fund.
"That will be wiped out," said
Mrs. Richardson.
The funds have been allocat-
ed for the high school's new air
conditioning system, five new
buses, roofing and portables,
among other items, she said.

State lops off 2 Wildcat games

Solid Rock, Arlington not sanctioned by FHSAA
BOB GERARD I SPORTS C


The Wildcat football program -ot an un-
pleasant surprise this weekend \\hen the\
were informed that two of their -;aies thlu
season have been dropped bh the Florda
High School Athletic Association.
Next week's game against Solid Rock
Christian Academy and the final -;a me of the
season against Arlington Count r)
Day have to be dropped because
the private schools are not mem-
bers of FHSAA.
The Wildcats played both
non-member schools last sea-
son, but this year, the asso-
ciation governing high school
sports tightened up on their
standards and declared both
teams ineligible to play.
The FHSAA and ACD have
had their problems recently and
after the association handed do\\ n a
$33,00ooo fine for a variety of allegations, the
pair parted company earlier this year.
Athletic Director Melody Coggin and Coach
Ryan Sulkowski have been on the phone all
this week trying to land alternate games, but
so far without success.

Ms. Fraser passed the e-
mail on to physical education
teachers Rachel West and Kelly

Center was scheduled to cel-
ebrate Spirit Day anyway, they
decided to combine them into
one event.
"They really ran with this,"
said Ms. Fraser. "They did a

The team the school chose to
support? The Jacksonville Jag-

When the day for the event

Woman

charged

in 'juke'

stabbing
Police charged a Sanderson
woman with the stabbing of a
man outside the Club 229 some-
time after midnight on Sep-
tember 18, and filed a criminal
complaint against her victim.
lesha Coleman, 18, admitted
to Deputy Daniel Nichols that
she stabbed Tyrone Holton,
41, also of Sanderson, in the
abdomen and left side follow-
ing a verbal altercation at the
neighborhood bar also known
as "The Juke."
Ms. Coleman said she did so
after Mr. Holton rushed at her
and pinned her to a vehicle.
Deputy Rodney Driggers
interviewed Mr. Holton at the
Fraser Hospital emergency
room prior to him being airlift-
ed to Shands Jacksonville. He
said the victim was intoxicated
and difficult to understand, but
partially identified his assail-
ant.
Mrs. Coleman was later con-
fronted by Deputy Nichols at
her residence off CR 127 North.
She said she tossed the knife
outside a vehicle as she left the
scene before police arrived,
and a subsequent search for it
yielded nothing.
Ms. Coleman was arrested
for aggravated battery, and the
complaint against Mr. Holton is
for simple battery.
Earlier last week, police filed
complaints against four persons
involved in an altercation at a
north Macclenny trailer park.
A fifth participant, Jeffrey
Doss Sr., 22, of Sanderson was
arrested at the scene for bat-
tery of Lindsey Prevatt, 23, at
her Blair St. address and for
violating a court order barring
him from contact with Heather
Crews, 21, who lives at the same
address.
Deputy Brandon Kiser said
the fracas broke out after Steph-
anie Swords, 41, and Tiffany
Doss, 19, both of Sanderson,
showed up about 1:30 pm to
take the 2-year-old son of Ms.
Doss and Mr. Doss to the health
department.
Ms. Crews said they struck
her without provocation and the
other parties soon joined in.
Deputy Kiser filed a com-
plaint against Ms. Crews for
battery on Ms. Swords and ag-
gravated battery of Ms. Doss,
who is nine months pregnant.
The complaint against Ms.
Swords is for battery against
Ms. Crews, who is four months
pregnant. Ms. Doss faces a count
of aggravated battery on Ms.
Crews. Ms. Prevatt was named
for battery on Ms. Swords.
The Department of Chil-
dren and Families was notified
because children ages 2 and 4
were present.
A complaint for aggravated
assault and domestic battery
was filed September 15 against
a Jacksonville man following an
alleged attack on his estranged

$57 million school budget Prison legal aid group sues sheriff

opted a millage, or property tax,
rate of 7.782 mills, which should
generate some $6,653,509.
That's about $460,000 less than
last year's tax revenues.
Apropertyvalued at $200,000
would pay roughly $1556 in
school district taxes at the new
rate. The same property if home-
steaded would pay a few hundred
dollars less about $1167.
The public will have an oppor-
tunity November 2 to vote on .25
mills of the 7.782 millage rate,
which will raise about $222,000
in school taxes.
The so-called "discretionary
critical needs" millage has been
included in years past by the
school board's authority, but due
to action by the state legislature,
the levy must have voter approv-
al.
Mrs. Richardson has said
the taxes would bring in about
$400,000 in additional state rev-
enue the district would otherwise
lose.
The tax and accompanying
state revenue, which were in-
cluded in the new budget, are
intended to soften the blow from
cuts to education funding by the
legislature in recent years.



State lops

2 games off

schedule...
(From page 1
The athletic field was awash
with children and teachers on
the sidelines sporting face paint,
decorative hats and clothing in
the Jaguar's signature colors of
teal and black.
Each class had created its
own section of Jaguar theme
backdrop, displayed on a nearby
fence.
Ms. Fraser wore a spotted,
fake fur Jaguar mask and min-
gled with the kids.
"If we get this grant," she told
the crowd of enthusiastic chil-
dren, "Ms. Fraser makes you a
promise. I will individually kiss
each one of you and I'll kiss a live
pig, too!"
If the Prek/kindergarten
Center is lucky enough to be a re-
cipient of one of the NFL grants,
the funds would help expand the
playground facilities.
Last year's demolition of sev-
eral unusable portables opened
up areas of the school grounds
which the administration hopes
to fully utilize for more physical
education area. The grant would
be used to landscape and add
new playground equipment.
"What some of the teachers
would really like is a section of
covered play area, something
like an outdoor pavilion to shield
the kids from the sun when its ex-
tremely hot or during rain," said
Ms. Fraser.
The principal says the Prek
Center has made health and fit-
ness a commitment and already
has events in place that promote
the importance of exercise.
"Jump Rope for Heart" raises
money for The American Heart
Association. The school's annual
Spring Fling is devoted to track
and field events.
Ms. West conducts health as-
sessments on each student at
the beginning of the school year.
Another one comes at the end of
the year to determine improve-
ments or areas still needing to be
addressed.
Children are even given in-
struction on the game of tennis
using an imaginary net in the
classroom. Promoting healthy
eating habits is ongoing part of
the P.E. curriculum.
Ms. Fraser is pleased about
the school's commitment to im-
proving health standards for its
students and is excited about the
results of the grant.
"We're lucky, we won't have to


wait that long. We should know
sometime in November," she
said.

Ms. Richardson said last
month that the additional millage
is meant to put education funding
in counties with lower property
values, like Baker County, on par
with the state-wide average.
The critical needs millage
must gain 51 percent support to
pass and would remain for two
years.
During its second meeting
this month on September 20,
the school board approved 3-0
the new teacher union's con-
tract, which includes hikes to the
tenure-based salary increases
normally a part of the 197-day
contract's yearly renewal.
Board members Karen McCol-
lum and Patricia Weeks were not
present for the vote.
Most of the tenure-based
raises were increased by $100
to about $455, while raises for
teachers with 25 years of service
or more were increased by $649
to $6511.
Supplemental pay for things
like yearbook duty have also
been increased under the new
contract.
The annual supplements for
yearbook rose $470 to $1500
at the high school; rose $250 to
$900 at the middle school; and


for all other schools rose by $75
to $600.
The new supplement for com-
petitive cheerleading is $1030.
The teacher's union the
Baker County Education Associ-
ation ratified the new contract
September 8.
The board received its annual
financial report for the 2009-10
fiscal year that evening too.
The report reflects actual
spending and revenue between
July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010,
and compares the figures to the
previous year.
Revenues fell by more than $2
million while expenses rose by
$2.5 million.
Money from the state dropped
by $4.9 million from the previous
year, or 14 percent, but still ac-
counted for 65 percent of all the
district's funding.
Federal stimulus funds re-
imbursed the district for about
$2.5 million in teacher salary
and benefit costs and another
$1.5 million in stimulus funds is
expected this year.
"ARRA [American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act] funds
helped out tremendously," Mrs.
Richardson said.

Holland & Knight.
State law requires not only dis-
closure of public records unless
specifically exempted by Florida
statutes, but also that agencies
refusing disclosure identify the
statute citation supporting non-
disclosure.
FILS's compliant contends the
sheriffs office did not point to
any pertinent portion of the Pri-
vacy Act, but simply referenced it
generally.
"An agency can refuse to
produce the public records only
if the [Florida] legislature has
adopted an expressly applicable
exemption to the Public Records
Act and to Article I, Section 24 [of
the Florida Constitution]. Absent
such a legislative exemption, the
duty to provide public records is
absolute," the complaint states
before citing case law to support



Sen uslttrstoth


the argument.
It goes on to say that any agen-
cy claiming an exemption bears
the burden of proving the right
to an exemption, and that lack-
ing any exemption to the Public
Records Law, "any agency has an
express statutory duty to make
the public records available for


inspection virtually on demand."
The lawsuit asks that the court
order release of the requested
records, declare that FILS has
the right to inspect and copy
the records under state law and
award FILS its court costs and
attorney's fees.
The suit's filling fee totaled
$410.

--- LETTERS TO THE EDITOR----


'Needs to be done' Cow Pen


Dear Editor:
In response to last week's let-
ter to the editor about [guber-
natorial candidate] Rick Scott,
I believe he is saying things that
we all know have to be done. Our
federal government is borrowing
money from China that our kids
and grand kids will have to pay
back. Florida is billions of dollars
in the hole. Even our local gov-
ernment is taking money out of
reserves.
Taxpayers are paying as much
as they can now!
In Baker County, the private
sector unemployment is probably
around 15 percent (I bet that's
low!) and government sector jobs
are probably at full employment,
with pensions and free or low-
cost insurance.
When our kids graduate
they can't even find jobs, so I
ask where's all the money com-
ing from? Has the writer of last
week's letter looked in his neigh-
borhood and seen the foreclosed
homes that people cannot afford,
let alone pay taxes on? Has last
week's writer watched the news


Government must shrink


IMPRESSIONS
Jim McGauley
We're all starting to get it.
Regardless of how you stand
with the Tea Party movement,
you must admit one thing: it has
set right the concept of whose
money it is.
It's not the government's mon-
ey, it's ours. Maybe you already
knew that without prompting
from the Tea Party. Yea, maybe,
but most of us haven't been act-
ing like we know it.
The extended recession, or
mini-depression, that we've been
in for over three years has been
a great lesson. We've learned
something about artificially in-
flated housing markets, stock
market bubbles, money supplies
and, to our chagrin, how intru-
sive government has become.
Government at all levels has
lagged behind the private sector
learning some of these lessons.
Where businesses large and
small had to do some quick belt
tightening starting in 2007 to


survive, well, government didn't
learn so much.
We were told that some things
are simply too big, too vital, to
fail. The solution? Pump money
we don't have into everything
from Cash for Clunkers to the
Stimulus Bill.
The results? Mushy. The long-
term effect? Debt huge debt
- for a future extending beyond
our grandchildren.
So now we have to teach gov-
ernment a lesson: when we tight-
en down, so do you.
What's needed is a "ceiling" or
percentage of tax revenues tied to
the general economic condition
- maybe the GNP, the total value
of all goods and services. Govern-
mental expenditures, except dur-
ing times of extreme emergen-
cies declared and time-limited,
should by law be mandated at or
below a fixed percentage say 8
percent.
When the economy sags, that
rate would drop proportionately.
Government, in effect, would be
forced to downsize just like we
do.
Other than preventing a dan-


gerous "debt-to-GNP" ratio like
we now have, the ceiling would
force government agencies lo-
cal, state and federal to take
fresh looks at their priorities
in down economies. Of course,
we need government to spend
money in key areas, but the defi-
nition of "key" has been greatly
stretched the past half-century.
On a local level things are much
simpler. Perhaps city, county and
school spending is in some cases
excessive and bloated, but overall
in counties the size of Baker the
excesses are easier to spot. To its
credit, local government has held
the line on spending the past few
years with the exception of the
school district that is pretty well
locked into spending and rev-
enues generated in Tallahas-
see.
That is a monstrous problem,
maybe one for another column.
For the time being, the school
district's $57 million budget
(that's hard to fathom in a district
with less than 5000 students) for
next year is being balanced on
the shoulders of federal stimu-
lus money, much of it a payback
by the Obama administration to
teacher unions its prime con-
stituency other than trial lawyers,
government employee and labor
unions.
Next year? We maybe looking
at some layoffs. Of course, they'll
come in the classrooms where the
real front line employees work
(God forbid we thin the ranks of
administration). Employees may
have to take pay cuts or pay more
for health insurance coverage
and retirement.
We in private business had
to do that three years ago. And
that's the point.
If we play this right, and the
November elections are a great
starting point, we can turn the
current recession into a large
"re-set" button and place the em-
phasis back on the private sector
while learning to live with less
- a lot less government.



h k it ou t
bakercuntyprss^co


lately? Government employees
in Greece are rioting because the
government is out of money.
Sound familiar?
Rick Scott, along with gover-
nors like Chris Christie of New
Jersey, are what our country
needs. And yes, he is a self-made
multimillionaire who has said
he'll take no pay and sell the gov-
ernment airplane. What kind of
country do we live in when being
successful makes you a target?
Are we capitalists or socialists?
I look at things from a busi-
ness point of view, and not a
government point of view, and
I have seen how government is
so wasteful. Whether you work
in the private sector or for the
government, you have to admit
you've seen it, too.
Maybe with conservative can-
didates like Rick Scott, Marco
Rubio and others, we can do the
hard work that needs to be done.
These are not the most popular
choices. However, they are what
needs to be done.

A huge library fan!

Dear Editor:
When I retired from teaching in Texas last year, I moved to Mac-
clenny to live with my sister. The first things I did were get a driver's
license, fishing license, voter registration and a library card.
I want to tell you how much I appreciate the Emily Taber Public
Library here in Macclenny.
As an avid reader and former reading teacher, I really appreciate
and enjoy reading. I have belonged to libraries small and large in six
states, and the Taber Library is very impressive.
The ladies working there are helpful; they will locate a book at an-
other library if it's not here, and they call me when it comes in. The
building is beautiful, very organized and they have "big print" books!
If anyone hasn't been to our library, you need to check it out it's
wonderful!

Joan O'Donal Trawick: "I laughed

the housing market didn't get the

Kaycee Greif Heinz: "Guess the re-

got grants or stimulus money:'


Ed Davie:"Recession over? In what

Erica Lee Bazal Snyder:"Must have

foreclosures than ever and you can't
get help, so what to do?"


a disaster
Dear Editor:
When is enough, enough? The
conditions on Cow Pen Rd. have
gotten so bad that driving is a
hazard. Today (September 21) a
school bus trying to make a left-
hand turn from Fred Harvey Rd.
onto Cow Pen went off the road
and got stuck.
We need to have a responsible
local government that addresses
these hazards and would like to
see some swift action to resolve
them. The time for talk is over,
and we now need action.

Dear Editor:
At least the DOC employee's

The union rants against Rick
Scott are not about safety and
protection, not about high qual-
ity schools with the best educa-
tors, not about psych patient or
resident care, not about financial
stability and responsibility for
our state and country, not about
private industry growth and jobs
for Florida, not about mortgag-
ing our children for our personal

They are about money for

ATV riding

rules differ

Dear Editor:
It seems like there's a double
standard in Sanderson concern-
ing the use of ATVs. Kids ride
them on the sidewalks in the area
of the council on aging building
and they even go to the store,
crossing US 90, and you never
see it addressed.
If it is wrong for one, it should
be wrong for all. Evidently golf
carts are an exception due to
them riding on the sidewalks
between Macclenny and Glen St.
Mary.
I can understand why these
laws are in effect. What I don't
understand is why the law doesn't
apply to all.

Glen adopts 'recession' budget


Grant for
water utility
is said to be
near certain
The five-member Glen St.
Mary Town Council on Septem-
ber 21 unanimously approved a
budget for the coming fiscal year
beginning in October.
In doing so, the council ad-
hered to a commitment made a
year ago to hold down spending
to 2008 levels amid decreasing
cash reserves and stagnant rev-
enue from the state, utilities and
other sources. Glen St. Mary does
not levy ad valorem taxes.
The largest of the budget slices,
general fund, stands at $173,490
- down about $8000 from the
current fiscal year because the
town plans no capital expendi-
tures the coming 12 months.
Instead, the bulk of financial
activity in the town in 2010-11
will center around the near likely
award of a $600,000 CDBG
grant to install central water to
neighborhoods north of US 90.
The south portion already has
water, and both water and sewer
along US 9o.
Mayor Juanice Padgett re-
ceived word a week ago that a re-
cent site visit by the Florida De-
partment of Community Affairs,
through which the federal grant


Nme:_

oncne
N"me
No


flows, went well and it appears
the grant will be approved.
The is the second year Glen
applied for the funds, and com-
pletion of the engineering and
other preliminaries with that first
application put the town high
on the list of municipalities and
counties in the running.
Glen will send off an initial
contract this week back to DCA,
then await an environmental
study before final approval.
Mayor Padgett estimated at
this week's monthly meeting that
a construction contract could be
bid by early 2011.
The council discussed several
other policy areas during the 20-
minute meeting:
Renewal of the moratorium
on construction impact fees,
enacted last year. The town will
likely now eliminate the annual
renewal date in favor of an open-
ended policy of continuing the

moratorium until the economy
improves.
Glen decided last year to do
away with the fees as a means of
spurring new construction.
The council appeared in favor
of amending its vendor bidding
policy as recommended earlier
by town attorney Joel Foreman.
It mandates that likely bid-
ders be brought in on the writ-
ing of specifications to minimize
confusion and equalize as much
as possible manufacturing specs,
warranties and other matters.
Glen St. Mary used the system
recently procuring bids for a rid-
ing lawn mower.
The council also appeared
amenable to periodically calling
for professional services bids
from its attorney, engineer, audi-
tor and grants coordinator.
Mr. Foreman suggested the re-
quests be sent out on a staggered
basis and not all in one year. He

will also check current contracts

noted he is on a 3o-day "at will"

The attorney also advised
council members on the statute
governing interest conflicts. His
comments were in response to
a request earlier by Councilman
Dicky Foster, a plumbing con-
tractor, on the proper procedure
should he desire to bid on a por-
tion of the water project.
Mr. Foreman advised nothing
prohibits him from submitting
the bid, but that he would then
have to declare the conflict and
avoid participating in any delib-

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION



Park manager contract tabled

Concern over him now residing in Ocala area


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County Commis-
sion tabled approval of the man-
agement contract for St. Mary's
Shoals Park the evening of Sep-
tember 20 because the contrac-
tor recommended by county staff
didn't already live here.
Brian Harris is originally from
Baker County, but lives in Ocala,
Fla.
"I'm a little concerned that he
doesn't live in the county," said
Commissioner Gordon Crews,
adding that he knew Mr. Harris'
family and that Mr. Harris sup-
ports a wife and children.
The county, at the commis-
sion's direction, advertised the
park manager position as a con-
tract post paying $25,000 a year
with no benefits. The park man-
ager would be responsible for re-
mitting all income, social security
and workers compensation taxes
to the federal government.
"This may not work out ... I'm
concerned this is something we'll
be going through again in six
months," Mr. Crews said.
He envisioned the park man-
ager being a local retiree. Com-
mission Chairman Alex Robinson
agreed, saying he'd like the man-
ager to live within the county.
A committee of county em-
ployees narrowed a list of 22 ap-
plicants to four for interviews and
Mr. Harris clinched the group's
recommendation.


Delivery
A pizza delivery driver was
arrested on Interstate 10 in west
Baker County the afternoon of
September 19 when a county
deputy learned his license had
three prior suspensions.
Deputy Matt Sigers said he
was passing a 1993 Nissan driven
westbound near the rest area
when he noticed driver Brandon
Smith, 34, of White Springs, FL
was not wearing a seat belt.
He stopped the vehicle about
4:30 and a computer check re-
vealed the suspensions for failure
to pay fines. Mr. Smith was taken
to county jail and his vehicle was
retrieved by a relative.
Deputy Sigers' report indi-
cates that Mr. Smith is a driver
for Dominos Pizza in Macclenny.
In a second case, a Yulee driv-
er was arrested for four prior sus-
pensions and being an habitual
offender.
Deputy David Nichols said he
stopped Justin Peacock, 19, on
SR 121 north of Macclenny the
evening of September 14 because
his 1998 Dodge pickup had no
tag light.
The motor vehicle data on Mr.
Peacock also advised the officer
to seize the tag from the vehicle.
In other recent arrests, a 15-
year-old male from Macclenny
was charged with fleeing police
on foot and loitering after he
was captured during the early
morning hours of September 18
between buildings at Dixie Mini-
Storage off North 8th St.


The manager's contract stipu-
lates the 16oo-acre park will be
open Friday through Monday
from 9:oo am to sunset and that
the manager will work to hours
each day.
The position's duties include
upkeep of rest rooms, garbage
disposal, conducting tours, or-
ganizing events, patrols of the
property and insuring compli-
ance with the park's management
plan and rules.
County Manager Joe Cone said
there have been problems at the
park north of Glen St. Mary like
vandalism and unauthorized use
of the off-highway vehicle trails.
He suggested that commission-
ers contact Mr. Harris about any
plans he may have to move here,
which Mr. Cone said he believed
was Mr. Harris' intention.
Also tabled this week by the
board was a three-year, $1.7-
million draft contract with the
Florida Department of Children
and Families [DCF] for oper-
ating Community Behavorial
Healthcare Services [CBHS], a
NEFSH-affiliated provider of
adult mental health counseling
to local residents.
Commissioners were hesitant
to approve the contract in draft
form. It awaits approval from
DCF officials in Tallahassee.
The contract is contingent on
funding from the Florida Leg-
islature, but CBHS employees
are paid by the county, which is
reimbursed by DCF. The first
year of the contract amounts to


roughly $444,000.
Without the new contract in
place by October 1, however,
CBHS's 12 employees can't be
paid, Mr. Cone said the following
day.
An emergency meeting has
been set for September 23 at 4:30
pm to once again consider the
contract and get direction from
the board on proceeding with Mr.
Harris' contract.
In other business this week:
The board agreed to accept
$1oo from Dave Adams for the
one-time grading of the private
dirt road Tennessee Street north-
east of Sanderson off Cow Pen
Road.
Mr. Adams circulated a letter
among his neighbors soliciting
financial support for the imme-
diate effort and formation of a
special taxing district to pave the
road.
"This should put an end to
all the issues we have with our
streets due to the weather, and
in the future will benefit us in the
fact that our property values will
go up," he wrote. "The way I see
it, it's a win-win situation for all
concerned."
The board agreed with staffs
recommendation to hire Michael
& Jonathan's Landscaping of
Glen St. Mary to install trees for
the ag center's arboretum proj-
ect.
The company's $9690 bid
was the second lowest of three
received. The low bidder's pro-
posal did not meet the county's


advertised specifications, par-
ticularly a one-year replacement
guarantee.
Commissioners declared a
1996 Dodge van no longer used
by the road department surplus
property for donation to Baker
Correctional Institute's work
crews.
The county board also heard
an appeal of the Land Planning
Agency's [LPA] July 22 denial
of a residential property owner's
request to further subdivide her
land, but maintain its eligibility
for building permits.
Wilma Rowe's 5.72 acres is
on the unpaved Bob Kirkland
Road. She said she hoped to sell
a portion of the property to keep
her from moving into a nursing
home.
The county's land develop-
ment regulations discourage the
creation of new lots without ac-
cess to paved roads.
While property owners are
free to divide their land, the re-
sulting lots may be deemed non-
conforming and ineligible for
building permits.
Commissioners followed ad-
vice from their attorney and up-
held the LPA's denial.
"Legally, I don't think you
could approve it even if you
wanted to," advised county attor-
ney Terry Brown. "You have to
act within the parameters of the
law or change the law."


man's license was suspended


Lt. Scotty Rhoden said he first
spotted the youth walking on the
roof of Harrington Insurance on
US 90 about 1:30, then chased
him in his vehicle through sev-
eral parking lots before captur-
ing him. The boy lives on nearby
Blair St.
Michael McNeill, 21, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for disor-
derly intoxication after he was
arrested at a residence on US 90
East about 12:30 the morning of
September 14.
Deputy Rodney Driggers said
he responded to a prowler call
and found Mr. NcNeill hiding in
a carport. Homeowner Elizabeth
Frigo told the officer the suspect
forced his way inside from the
back door when she answered it,
caused a disturbance and left.
Ms. Frigo said she allowed
him to live in a shed at the rear
of her property. The deputy ar-
rested Mr. McNeill when he be-
came loud and abusive during
questioning.
Brett Sapp, 34, of Macclenny
was arrested for committing a
lewd act while seated in his work
truck the evening of September
15 in the parking lot outside Any-
time Fitness on South 6th St.
Deputy Chris Walker said he
received a complaint about 11:oo
pm that a vehicle matching the
truck's description had followed
another one to downtown Mac-
clenny after leaving the parking


Complainant Justin Pettyjohn
told the officer he and another
male had talked for over an hour
in the parking lot in the company
of two females.


When Deputy Walker returned
to the parking lot searching for
the suspect's truck, he located
Mr. Sapp, who was engaged in an
indecent act.

Pill 'take back' day


at CVS on Saturday


Anyone with unwanted or ex-
pired prescription medications in
their home is urged to participate
in the Drug Enforcement Admin-
istration's National Pill Take Back
Initiative on September 25.
The Baker County Sheriff's
Office will accept any prescrip-
tion pills at the CVS on S. 6th St.
in Macclenny between 10:00 am
and 2:00 pm. Officers will be on
hand with secure containers for
the drugs, which will be stored
locally for pickup and disposal by
the federal agency.
"Many Americans are not
aware that medicines that lan-
guish in home cabinets are highly
susceptible to diversion, misuse
and abuse," reads the DEA's web-
site. "Rates of prescription drug
abuse in the US are increasing at
alarming rates, as are the num-
ber of accidental poisonings and


overdoses due to these drugs.
"Studies show that a majority
of abused prescription drugs are
obtained from family and friends,
including from the home medi-
cine cabinet."
In addition, many Americans
do not know how to properly dis-
pose of their unused medicine,
often flushing them down the toi-
let or throwing them away both
potential safety and health haz-
ards, according to the DEA.
BCSO's local partners in the
initiative include Baker Commu-
nity Counseling Services, a drug
counseling organization, and the
nonprofit public health advocacy
group Healthy Baker.
For more information about
the National Pill Take Back Initia-
tive, call BCSO's chief investigator
Chuck Brannan at 259-0237.

Charged in 'fake return' scheme

Couple bilked auto parts store for $700 in refunds


Criminal complaints for grand
theft have been filed against two
employees of a Macclenny auto
parts store for setting up bogus
cash refunds for "defective" mer-
chandise.
The sheriffs department was
advised on September 17 by a
loss prevention employee of the
alleged theft of nearly $700 from
Auto Zone on South 6th dating
back to early August.
Deputy Rodney Driggers inter-
viewed one of the accused, Chris-
tine Wentworth, 29, of Jackson-
ville at the store that afternoon,
and she admitted to taking part
in the scheme at the behest of a
second employee, Scott Austin,
41, of Sanderson.
Mr. Austin, when informed
that the fraud had been discov-
ered and police called, left the
store and the officer said he was
unable to make contact with
him.
Ms. Wentworth said Mr.
Austin would retrieve computer
records of past purchases, pull a
similar part from inventory and



Large jar


ofcash is


stolen from


local church

A 5-gallon glass jar two-thirds
filled with coins and bills was
taken from the vestibule at the
First United Methodist Church
sometime between September
9-13.
Bill Cooper, a church repre-
sentative who reported the theft
to police, estimated the jar con-
tained $500-$700.
The jar was last seen situated
on a small table at the congrega-
tion's Wednesday evening service
at the north Macclenny church.
Deputy Tony Norman said there
was no sign of forced entry, and
Mr. Cooper speculated a door
may have been left open.
The table sits just outside the
sanctuary.
In other recent theft reports,
someone looted a City of Mac-
clenny storage building of $3750
worth of lawn equipment over-
night September 14.
A front door lock was severed
with a bolt cutter that was later
found near a hole in the perim-
eter fence around the mainte-
nance yard complex off Hartline
Dr. in the southwest city.
Employee Charles Kirkland,
who reported the theft to police,
said the haul included three edg-
ers, six weed cutters and four
blowers.
Sgt. James Marker of the
sheriffs department said a city
employee found the bolt cutter,
and the area around the fence
hole near Gatlin Ct. yielded both
tire and foot prints. The fence
opening appeared to have been
there for some time, but was not
visible from the yard.
Marty Farnesi told police a
2007 Kawasaki dirt bike valued at
$5000 was taken from his front
yard on W. Ohio Ave. in Macclen-
ny between late on September 13
and the next afternoon.
His brother Vince Farnesi re-
ported a $350 electric chain saw
taken from his residence on River
Circle overnight on September
11. He gave police a list of people
who attended a party there that
night.
William Smith of Glen St.
Mary reported a .380 pistol miss-
ing from a bag that he kept both
in his vehicle and at his Glenwood
home. He told police he last saw
the gun the evening of Septem-
ber 14 and noticed it missing four
days later.
A .22 caliber pistol stored in
the same bag was still there.
Danny Thrift told police a
grinder and saw valued at $100
were taken from a tool box on
a 1987 Ford truck parked at his


property off CR 23-D north of
Macclenny the afternoon of Sep-
tember 16.
Mr. Thrift told Deputy Tony
Norman he saw Shannon Du-
pree, 44, of Glen St. Mary take
the items and drive off. The sus-
pect was named in a criminal
complaint for petty theft.


make it look "used" in a grease
and oil bin before placing it with
defective merchandise.
She would then issue him a
cash refund for the part. The
couple employed the tactic seven
times beginning August 5.
Ms. Wentworth told Deputy
Driggers she was lured into the
conspiracy out of sympathy for
Mr. Austin, who claimed he was
strapped for cash due to child
support obligations.
He assured her she would not
be caught, and said he had used
the system before.
She also recalled that Mr. Aus-
tin made her feel uneasy by say-
ing he had beat up women in the
past.
In other retail thefts:
A white male was caught on
surveillance video early on Sep-
tember 16 when he stole three
packs of diapers and to packs of
cigarettes from CVS Pharmacy in
downtown Macclenny.
Night manager Oscar Ro-
drigues said the suspect handed
him a Vystar bank card before

running from the store about
2:30 am. The card was rejected
and belonged to a Macclenny
woman.
Deputy Steven Smith said he
attempted unsuccessfully to con-
tact the woman at her east city
address.
Police are attempting to
learn the identity of a black male
who cashed a bogus check for
$95 at Winn-Dixie on September
16 and attempted to do so again
two days later.
Surveillance tape made avail-
able to the sheriffs department
showed he was about 6' tall and
weighed about 230 pounds with
hair in dreadlocks. He was ac-
companied in the first instance
by another black male and a
white female.
The suspect signed the check
with the name James Slater and
gave a bogus license plate num-
ber. A store manager told Deputy

fused to accept the second check.
The checks were apparently


stolen from a Neptune Beach
man.
Britni Page, 25, of Maxville
was arrested the evening of Sep-
tember 17 when she attempted
to leave the Macclenny Walmart
with $93 worth of health and
beauty products stuffed into her
clothing and a purse.
A store security worker said
he observed the woman, who was
accompanied by her husband,
remove items from packaging
before concealing them.
Wendy Harvey of Glen St.
Mary told police on September 17
her bank card was fraudulently
used twice at a drug store in New
York City to make purchases to-
taling $207.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


BAKER COUNTY DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION


Cedar Creek default depletes funds


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County Develop-
ment Commission's financial
condition has deteriorated in
recent years, largely due to the
failed Cedar Creek project that
would have pumped $1.3 million
into the commission coffers had
its developer not gone belly up.
Adrian Development's mas-
sive residential community for
seniors west of Glen St. Mary,
complete with a golf course and
commercial areas, went bankrupt
shortly after the company re-
ceived approval from the county
to move forward in the summer
of 2008.
Meanwhile the development
commission used most of its sav-
ings to purchase about 140 acres
in Sanderson for economic devel-
opment purposes and planned to
use the cash from Cedar Creek to
buy an adjacent 160 acres.
Now the development com-
mission is left with about $1 mil-


lion worth of land, about $10,000
annually in state gambling taxes
and another $10,877 a year from
a cell phone tower lease.
The commission's governing
board convened September 20
to consider its 2010-11 budget,
review a financial audit for the
2008-09 fiscal year and receive
an update on economic develop-
ment activities from Chamber of
Commerce director Darryl Reg-
ister, who serves as the commis-
sion's director as well.
The audit from Lyons & Ly-
ons of Macclenny showed the
commission's expenses for the
2008-09 fiscal year were $67,671
and revenues $20,883, which led
to a $46,788 decrease in the gen-
eral fund.
The firm's Clay Lyons also
pointed to the commission's fail-
ure to meet its financial obliga-
tions with the Chamber of Com-
merce.
The commission had not paid
back any of the $40,000 it bor-
rowed from the chamber and
paid only $8,000 of a $32,000


contract with the organization
for management services.
"I think the commission is a
casualty of the current economic
condition we're all suffering
from," said the accountant.
Mr. Register presented board
members with expenditures and
income for the 2009-10 fiscal
year, which ends September 31.
The commission received
$18,305 in revenue and spent
some $13,430, which increased
net assets by $4,875. And while
there's not much cash on hand,
Mr. Register is actively market-
ing the 160-acre Sanderson site
to the private sector.
"If a developer takes 20, 30 or
50 acres, you're back in the ball
game," he said.
The development board
also learned this week that two
companies have been in regular
contact with Mr. Register about
starting operations here, one of
which incinerates wood to gener-
ate electricity.
Mr. Register said the alterna-
tive energy company could invest


Complaints for assault


A Sanderson man and his
ex-daughter-in-law were both
named in criminal complaints
for aggravated assault following
a confrontation at a residence off
Bennie Givens Ct. late on Sep-
tember 18.
Angelica Givens, 23, said she
and boyfriend Fabian Good-
man, 27, both of Glen, were run
off from the residence by Gerald
Williams, 59, who they claim was
armed with a shotgun.
Mr. Williams and family mem-
bers insisted to Deputy Daniel
Nichols that Ms. Givens and the
boyfriend struck their front door
with a baseball bat.
The two arrived there about
11:4o and witnesses said the
girlfriend was agitated, cursing
and waving the bat because the
Williamses had not turned over


her 2-year-old son who is also
the son of Geraldo Williams, 27
- when Ms. Givens' mother went
there to pick him up about 5:00
pm.
The Williams family members
signed witness statements, but
Ms. Givens when interviewed
later refused to do so. Deputy
Nichols said she was again agi-
tated and cursing when he ques-
tioned her.
Similar complaints resulted
from a confrontation involving
relatives at the residence of Ray
Lauramore on Pleasant Grove
Church Rd. in Taylor the morn-
ing of September 13.
Mr. Lauramore, 42, allegedly
threatened and pointed a shotgun
at a 17-year-old nephew, who he
said taunted him and then stood
on his property threatening to


beat him with a tree limb.
Both parties denied the other's
accusations, and Deputy Matt
Sigers said the complaints allege
aggravated assault with deadly
weapons and domestic violence
because the accusers and wit-
nesses are related.
The state attorney's office will
decide whether criminal charges
result in both cases.
In a third recent domestic in-
cident, Deputy Ben Anderson ar-
rested Jeremy Lowell Anderson,
45, of Macclenny [no relation] for
allegedly choking his father Clyde
Anderson, 70, at his residence off
Claude Harvey Rd.
The father and son argued
over the former's refusal to give
his son a ride to Macclenny the
afternoon of September 13.


$1oo million in Baker County
and create 100 new jobs.
He declined to comment any
further about the company, how-
ever.
The development commission
approved its roughly $21,000
budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year.
It includes $22,400 in expected
revenue as well as some $3400
in cash carry forward from this
year.
Spending includes $5000
in promotions and advertising,


Three are


arrested


on warrants
Baker County deputies ar-
rested three persons the past
week on outstanding warrants,
one of them for sale of cocaine in
Indiana.
Lt. Scotty Rhoden said he rec-
ognized Ronald Hadley, 36, as he
walked toward his residence on
W. Lowder in Macclenny about
1:30 pm on September 19. The
officer knew that Mr. Hadley was
wanted in Grant County, IN and
in Columbia County on a proba-
tion violation warrant for failure
to pay fines.
Shortly after, the suspect sur-
rendered without incident.
Graylin McKellum, 24, of
Macclenny was arrested late on
September 17 on a probation
violation for domestic violence in
Clay County.
Deputy Rodney Driggers said
he recognized Mr. McKellum in a
group gathered at the Macclenny
McDonald's about 11:oo pm.
Deputy Shawn Bishara ar-
rested Adam Christmas, 28, of
Glen St. Mary early on September
14 after learning he was wanted
in Walton County, FL for failure
to appear in court.
Mr. Christmas was a passen-
ger in a Jeep stopped that morn-
ing in Glen for speeding.


$10,000 for administrative ser-
vices from the Chamber of Com-
merce and $3500 for the yearly
audit.
The audit may not be neces-
sary.
"Unless we sell the land, we
won't have to have an audit," Mr.
Register said.
The board allocated $3500 to
begin repayment of the $40,000
loan.
The Chamber of Commerce
also gets about $39,000 a year
from the county and city for eco-
nomic development activities.
Combined with development
commission funds, Mr. Register
said there's close to $60,000
available for such activities in the
coming year.

Gearing up again for flu season


Several

outlets

have shots
KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
The Baker County Health De-
partment and local pharmacies
are busy gearing up for the 2010-
11 flu season. Many are already
promoting the "combination"
shot.
The influenza virus constantly
mutates, which is why there are
new strains every year and why
health experts believe annual
vaccinations are necessary.
"HiN1 is still out there along
with the new strains that have
appeared this season," said Mir-
randa Childers, a pharmacist at
CVS Pharmacyin Macclenny.
The combination vaccine of-
fers protection against A/HIN1
(pandemic) influenza and two
other influenza viruses, A/H3N2
and influenza B.
It's now recommended that
everyone 6 months of age and
older get flu shots, and especially
health care workers, in particular
those who care for the elderly and
children younger than 6 months.
Siggy Campbell, Director of
Nursing for the BCHD, reports
the facility has already received a
lot of phone calls about availabil-
ity of the vaccine.
"The option of High Dose
Fluzone is something addition-
ally offered this year at BCHD for
those age 65 and older," she said.
"They're finding that people in
that age bracket need a stronger
dose of the vaccine to properly
trigger the desired immune re-
sponse against influenza infec-
tion."
A limited amount of high dose
vaccine will be available.
The first day-long vaccination
clinic at the health department
is scheduled October 1. Walk-in
visits to the flu clinic will be ac-
commodated, but Ms. Campbell
recommends making an appoint-
ment. To schedule one, call 259-
6291.
Many insurers cover the cost
of flu shots. Non-insured patients
will pay $23-$29, about the aver-
age cost at pharmacies and public
health care facilities.
The Minute Clinic at CVS,
Walgreens and Winn-Dixie phar-
macies are now offering shots.


Keller nurse Tina Bradley teaches Colby Kennedy the vampire cough.


Appointments are not necessary
but it's best to call the pharmacy
before going as they may only be
administered on certain days.
Walmart already held a two-day
clinic and has not scheduled an-
other date.
Ms. Campbell also recom-
mends being diligent about hy-
giene practices to help deter the
spread of the virus.
"The practices of covering
your cough and washing your
hands may sound like really sim-
ple measures, but they make a
significant difference," she said.
Most people cover their mouth
with their hand when coughing, if
they cover their cough at all. But
hands, if not washed often, still
spread the virus to doorknobs,
phones, notebooks, keyboards
and other surfaces where it is
easily picked up.
A change in the practice of
covering one's mouth was im-
plemented into Florida public
schools last year when 'The Vam-
pire Cough" was introduced.
The Florida Department of
Public Health distributed a post-
er featuring a vampire covering
the lower half of his face with his
cape-draped forearm. The post-
ers were a common sight along
the halls at Macclenny Elemen-
tary.
Why the Vampire Cough?
Coughing into the crook of
one's elbow lessens the possibil-
ity of spreading contamination

Jack Pittman of the Florida
Office of Public Health Prepared-
ness began using the vampire
mascot for school children. Be-
cause of children's familiarity
with characters such as Count
Chocula of cereal fame and the
Sesame Street puppet Count von
Count, he chose a vampire to
spread the message.
The posters were distributed
at Halloween last year, helping to
reinforce the message.
Mr. Pittman also composed
the following poem to help kids
remember what to do:

When you have to cough,
or you have to sneeze.
Make like a vampire,
if you please.
Imagine your cloak
is on your arm,
Pull it up to your face;
and do no harm.
Ifyou forget and
cough in your hand,
Wash with soap and water
as soon as you can.

Explore Fort Clinch State Park






A Day



Away

KELLEY LANNIGAN


Want to combine a day of sun,
surf and fishing with a cultural
experience?
For the outdoorsman who
might also appreciate local his-
tory, a visit to Fort Clinch State
Park in Fernandina Beach will fit
the bill nicely. If you spend only
an afternoon or camp for a week,
the experience will be a memo-
rable one.
Fort Clinch is one of the oldest
in the Florida parks system. The
Civilian Conservation Corps, ac-
tive during the late 1930s, initi-
ated its development.
Located at the north end of
Amelia Island, the 1,1oo acre
park is situated on a peninsula
and bordered on three sides by
water. Visitors can look out on
the Amelia River to the west, the
Atlantic Ocean on the east. To the
north is the mouth of the Cum-
berland Sound.
The terrain of the park is var-
ied: sand dunes, some significant
in height; maritime hammock
permeated with old growth oaks;
white sandy beaches, flat plains
and stretches of estuarine tidal
marshes.
There are over 60 camping
sites that accommodate both RV
and primitive camping and in-
clude the basic necessities such
as hot and cold running showers,
telephones and bathrooms.
Hiking and biking are favorite
ways to get around on both dirt
and paved trails. Strolling along
or fishing from the pier that
stretches a half mile into the At-
lantic is an enjoyable outing. The
pier is part of 3 miles of shoreline
which features several jetties.
Old sailing ships are supposed
to have discarded their ballast
rocks along this same shoreline
before taking on new cargo, help-
ing to eventually create a habitat
for some of the best salt water
fishing in Northeast Florida. Re-

cord-sized flounder have come
out of these waters.
There is plenty of public park-
ing adjacent to the information
center, which is the gateway to
the historic Fort Clinch monu-
ment. It's a good place to relax for
a few minutes, shop for a book or
souvenir, grab a drink and plan
your next move.
Entrance fees do not include a
tour of the fort, but the additional
$2 fee is well worth it.
Occupied at different times
by both Confederate and Union
soldiers, the fort never saw active
battle. Its many sections are open
to visitors and have been pre-
served and presented authentic
to the mid-19th Century.
While strolling among the
kitchen, barracks, officer's meet-
ing rooms, jail, laundry and other
dwellings, you may encounter
park staff dressed in period
clothing who will interact with
you. Their speech and manner
will reflect that earlier time.
The first weekend of each
month, volunteers shoot the can-
nons, known as Rodman Guns,
which rest atop the walls of the
pentagonal shaped fortress.
Full scale garrison reenact-
ments take place in May and Oc-
tober and candlelight tours are
offered seasonally.
Fort Clinch State Park is open

the use of a new business and improvements to real property related to the expansion of an existing business
and shall also apply to tangible personal property of such new business and tangible personal property
related to the expansion of an existing business. The amount or limits of the amount of such exemption

public school classrooms in the following grade groupings: for prekindergarten through grade 3, 18 students;
for grades 4 through 8, 22 students; and for grades 9 through 12, 25 students. Under this amendment, the
current limits on the maximum number of students assigned to each teacher in public school classrooms

21 students; for grades 4 through 8, 27 students; and for grades 9 through 12, 30 students. This amendment
specifies that class size limits do not apply to virtual classes, requires the Legislature to provide sufficient
funds to maintain the average number of students required by this amendment, and schedules these revisions
to take effect upon approval by the electors of this state and to operate retroactively to the beginning of the
2010-2011 school year.

paying off credit card debt with
a bank loan that offers a lower
interest rate as a step to take to-
wards freedom from debt. They
seem surprised when I don't rec-
ommend it.
"But Rosie, I'd be getting rid
of this awful credit card that has
a 24 percent interest rate and
transferring the balance to a loan
at the bank that has only a 7 per-
cent interest rate."
It does sound tempting,
doesn't it?
Another grand idea people
have is to take out a line of credit
from the equity in their home to
pay off credit card or other con-
sumer debt. Both of these plans
make sense mathematically, but
there are a couple of reasons why
I don't suggest doing it.
The idea behind the debt
snowball (knocking out one debt
at a time starting with the small-
est) is to focus all of your financial
efforts on each goal, one by one.
It's exhausting and takes some
serious sacrifice, but the process
awards you little victories along
the way as each debt is paid off.
And the lifestyle change re-
quired to do this offers a lifelong
reward to you and your children
(who are watching you, by the
way). It fixes the root problems
that got you in debt in the first
place: spending and not living
within your means.
Mathematically, it does help
to surf your debt over to a lower
interest bank loan or line of
credit. But it fixes the symptom,
not the problem. It's a band-aid
on a gushing wound (pardon the
gory description). You just went
from being in debt to, well, being
in debt.
One good thing about hav-
ing that stupid credit card when
you begin paying off your debt
is that you're so mad at it, so fed
up, so sick of worshiping at the


Rosie Nickles


altar of American Express, that
you're ready to kill this debt and
throw every last penny you have
towards it just to get it out of your
life.
If you've rolled it into a line
of credit or bank loan, you are so
darn proud of yourself for making
such a "wise" financial move, and
before you know it you become
comfortable with this new debt
and don't pay it off as quickly. I
see it all the time.
So how exactly did you save
money by doing this? Where did
the passion to become debt-free
go? By the time you applied for
and got approved for the line of


credit, you could have taken out
a big chunk of your first debt in
the debt snowball.
Many people have taken out a
home equity line of credit to pay
off debts or for an emergency.
That was a very popular financial
move in the last few years. Banks
have made it extremely easy to
take out a line of credit from the
equity in your home.
But this is one of the main rea-
sons people are upside down on
their homes right now (they owe
more on their home that what
it is worth in the market today),
stuck there with a house they
can't afford or forced to fore-
close. They thought only about


the mathematical aspect of the
situation without considering the
risk involved.
Learn from these folks: Don't
mess with the equity in your
home. It's tempting and terribly
easy to do, but don't play that
game. Save up an emergency
fund and pay off your debt the
right way, starting today.

Carolyn Keen dies September 17
Mrs. Carolyn Keen, 82, of Howell, GA, passed away September
17, 2010, in Valdosta, GA. She was born February 22, 1928, in
Macclenny, FL, to the late Claude and Effie Mae Wolfe. She was
a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church
of Macclenny, FL, and resided primarily be-
tween Macclenny FL, and Valdosta, GA, most
of her life.
Mrs. Keen was born and raised in Mac-
clenny, FL. She represented our fair city as
Miss Baker County in the 1945 Miss Florida
pageant. She was well rounded both aca-
demically and athletically playing for her
high school basketball team as well as being
named Salutatorian for her graduating class.
Mrs. Keen is the last of the Wolfe family, who
played such an important and prominent
part of building this community. Her grand- Carolyn Keen
parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Lorenzo Wolfe
were charter members of First Baptist Church Macclenny and her
Aunts Mae and Rosa Wolfe were staples in the community for over
90 years. Their home place still stands at the corner of College
and Minnesota and is a memorial to days gone past. She is prede-
ceased by her parents Claude Hearst and Effie Mae Rhoden Wolfe;
sisters Gloria "Dodi" and Rosemary Wolfe; brother Stanford Wolfe
and son-n-law Thomas H. Hall.
She was well known for her ability to turn ordinary skeins of
yarn into beautiful afghans for her family and friends. Her deli-
cate crochet work was often judged Blue Ribbon winners at the
Baker County Fair.
After serving as a military wife for twenty years accompanying
her husband from one naval port to the next, she and her husband
finally settled in Valdosta, Georgia, where she set about raising her
three children. During that time, she worked in both the health
insurance and automobile industry.
Mrs. Keen took great enjoyment in her early days following
her grandchildren to one sporting event after another to cheer
them on or in heading north to celebrate birthdays and special
occasions with those who lived away. In her retirement years, she
took great pride in opening her home to her family and friends.
Holiday meals and special gatherings were always accented by her
preparation of her signature dressing and homemade chocolate
chip cookies. They were a source of envy for all who had the plea-
sure of dining at her table.
She also loved nothing better than to be on the lake, whether
it was Lake Santa Fe or Lake Grandin down around Gainesville,
Florida. The family spent many, many happy times watching her
turn a blank yard of dirt and weeds into a beautiful canvas of day
lilies each year.
She especially loved her Atlanta Braves, Jacksonville Jaguars
and Atlanta Falcons and was a staunch supporter of the Valdosta
Wildcats for many years.
After she and Mr. Keen retired, they returned to Baker County
to spend another fifteen years surrounded by friends and family
members of her youth.
Mrs. Keen, along with her husband, had recently returned to
Georgia to be closer to the children and grandchildren she adored,
especially all the new "babies" who had come into the family over
the last ten years. She was anxiously awaiting the birth of her sec-
ond great-great grandchild when the Lord called her home. Our
prayer for you, our sweet mother and grandmother comes from
Isaiah 40 "May you soar on wings like eagles; may you run and
not grow weary and may you walk and not be faint." But most of
all, may your face shine upon those of your family gone before you
and know that you will never be forgotten here on earth. Our love
will be with you always.
Family members include her husband of 64 years Harold E.
Keen; three children Carolyn Keen Hall, Kevin Edward (Lynne)
Keen and Claudia Keen (Marc) Butterick; grandchildren Lisa Hall
(Roger) Carpenter, Jeff (Stacey) Hall, Laurie Hall (Ben) Hender-
son, Adam Neil Butterick, Matthew Tyler Butterick and Kyle Ed-
ward Keen (USN); great grandchildren Wendi Carpenter (Ross)
Kidd, Shannon Michelle Carpenter, Taylor Brooke Hall, Shelby
Lynn Henderson and Brittany Ann Henderson; great great grand-
children Deven Thomas Kidd, Alexandria Kidd (due Feb. 2011)
and a multitude of other nieces, nephews, cousins and friends also
survive.
Funeral services will be held on September 21, 2010 in Taylor
Church with Pastor Jim Cox officiating. Interment followed in
Taylor Cemetery. The arrangements are under the care and direc-
tion of V. Todd Ferreira Funeral Services.

Each year, the fall webworm
makes an appearance in trees
throughout the county. These
caterpillars are known to feed on
a wide variety of tree species, and
while they very rarely kill trees,
they can ruin the aesthetics by
defoliating branches and creating
large, unsightly webs (pictured at
right).
Newly hatched caterpillars
immediately spin a silken web
around the foliage on which they
feed, which gets larger and en-
closes more foliage as they grow.
They live and move in groups
within the web until they are al-
most ready to pupate. Once ma-
ture, they leave the web and feed
individually before dropping to
the ground to pupate on or in the
soil.
Though the webs are unat-
tractive, damage to most trees is
considered insignificant. How-
ever, extreme infestations can

cause branch die-back and may
reduce nut production on pecans.
In these situations, control mea-
sures may be justified.
One control method is simply
to prune out the infested branch-
es as soon as you notice the tents.
This may be practical if the webs
are still small and pruning will
not affect the aesthetic quality or
health of the tree.
Another option is to spray
the leaves just outside the exist-
ing tent with a bacterium called
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt).
Product names include Dipel@,
Javelin@, Thuricide@, Worm


Attack@, Caterpillar Killer@,
Bactospeine@, and SOK-Bt@.
When the caterpillars expand
their tent, they will feed on the
bacteria-infected leaves which
will cause them to stop eating
and eventually die.
Of course, there is a third con-
trol option let nature do the
work. Birds, assassin bugs, wasps
and other predators feed on or
parasitize the fall webworm.
Some people have been known
to "help out" Mother Nature by
breaking open the tents using a
garden hose, which may help ex-
pose the caterpillars to predators.
But you'll have to weigh your op-
tions since a lack of predators in
your area could result in expos-
ing more of your tree to these vo-
racious eaters instead of having
the damage concentrated at the
branch tips.
If you have questions regard-
ing fall webworms or the use of
Bt to control caterpillars, please
me at the Baker County Exten-
sion office by calling 259-3520
for more information.

How Sam Todd ended


BOB GERARD I SPORTS
Never in a million years would
1997 BCHS grad Sam Todd have
ever imagined that in 2010 he
would be co-owner of a national
champion rugby team and plan-
ning for a quarterfinal World
Cup game to be hosted in Jack-
sonville.
But life can be funny some-
times, and that was how it worked
out for Todd. The owner of area
diagnostic imaging centers and a
biomedical waste disposal com-
pany picked up the game while in
the Navy.
"I got a love of the game when
I was a medical corpsman," said
Todd. "I was assigned to a Ma-
rine unit in Djibouti, an African
country north of Somalia. We
used to play rugby with a French
Foreign Legion company sta-
tioned there."
Though the Legionnaires usu-
ally came out on top, Todd picked
up the game pretty quickly. He
usually played sweeper, the
player who gets the ball when it
pops out of the scrum the big
huddle-like formation that starts
a play.
"That meant I was the one
that usually took the first big
hit," laughed Todd. "I was also
the player that they would hoist
into the air to catch the ball on a
throw in from the sidelines."
Besides the competition, what
Todd loved about the game was
the camaraderie.
"We would pound each other
all game long, but when it was
over we were best friends," he
recalled.
Upon returning to the area
after his service, Todd built up a
series of diagnostic imaging cen-
ters that featured upright MRIs
and continued to nurture his love
of the game.
He became interested in the
Axemen, the local rugby team
that was working to gain a fol-
lowing. The Axemen brought
over big time pro teams like the
UK's Leeds Rhinos and celebri-
ties such as Oscar winner Russell
Crowe.
When the chance opened up to
buy into the team, he became co-
owner. His job is the business end
and promotion and the team has
rapidly gained both popularity
and prowess. They have been to


the last two Rugby Grand Finals
and this year were undefeated,
beating New Haven, Connecticut
for the Rugby League champion-
ship.
Todd speaks of the team with
an infectious zeal.
"You can ask any rugby fan
around the US and in countries
like Australia and they will tell
you that Jacksonville is the cor-
nerstone of rugby in the United
States," he said.
That reputation has helped
Todd in his attempts to land a
Rugby World Cup quarterfinal
match at UNF's Hodges Field in
November. The Axemen have
landed four players on the US
National Team and Todd has
commitments from the US,
Canada and Jamaican national
teams to come to UNF to play.
He was disappointed that world
powerhouse South Africa bowed
out but is looking for a fourth na-
tional squad to commit.
"It's funny, isn't it? Here I'm a
local boy, born at Fraser Hospital
and I co-own the best rugby team
in the country."
Sam is the son of Mike and
Carolyn Todd of Glen St. Mary.
He attended advanced technical
schools in the Navy, where he
was a medical corpsman.


It was a busy week for the
Lady Wildcat volleyball team.
On Friday, they continued Baker
High's dominance over Trinity
Christian with a five set win over
the Conquerors.
The team was down two games
to one and rallied to take the next
two. The scores were 17-25, 25-
19, 16-25, 25-23, 15-13. The Cats
were sparked by the serving of
Stephanie Collett who amassed
six aces and five kills. Logan
Raulerson had eight assists and
Kayla Holland had six kills.
On Thursday, the Lady Wild-
cats traveled to Lake Butler to
take on Union County High
School in a district match. The
Cats couldn't keep up the mo-
mentum of last Friday's victory
and fell to the Lady Tigers in five
matches.
"We dug ourselves a hole, and
before you know it we were down
two games," said Coach Chris Ar-
moreda. "We put up a good fight
and rallied back to take the next


The middle school Bobcats
continued to dominate op-
ponents and won on the road
September 14 against Callahan
Middle School 28-6.
The B-Cats started out in the
Wing T with some success and
then shifted to the power game
and overran Callahan.
The Bobcats scored their first
touchdown on a sweep with Kyle
McCray running in the ball. Calla-
han also scored out of the sweep,
but Coach George McDuffie made
a defensive adjustment and shut
down the home team's running
game.
BCMS moved to the power
game and steam-rolled Calla-
han.
Brody Crews ran in a touch-
down straight up the middle
and Cotton Jefferson punched
through the hole for another.
The final score came on a play
action pass from Jacob Carter to
Blaine Merchant. The running
game had been so successful that
Callahan had to respect Carter's
fake to the running back.
The Bobcats came back from
a two touchdown deficit win
their first conference game 22-18
against the Lake City Falcons at
home September 21.

two games but we fell short in the
fifth and deciding game. On our
behalf, we committed too many
errors, missed serves and many
mental breakdowns."
Over the weekend, the Lady
Wildcats bussed over to Keystone
Heights for the Keystone Heights
Volleyball Tournament. The Cats
struggled, going winless in games
against Crescent City, Clay, Yulee
and Lecanto. Kayla Holland was
selected by coaches to the All-
Tournament team for her out-
standing play.
On Monday the Cats had an-
other tough loss, this time on the
road at Bishop Snyder. The Lady
Cats lost in three straight match-
es, 25-19, 25-19 and 26-24.
The team has a district record
of 1-3 and 2-7 overall.
"We are mired in a six-game
losing streak and our schedule
is not going to get any easier.
With our next five games against
district foes, we need much im-
proved play from every team
member. We need to find that
killer instinct and stop being
nice," said Armoreda.
Ongoing renovations to the
BCHS gym will not be com-
pleted in time for the Cats to
play any home games. The girls
will be playing the next five to
seven games away in the next few
weeks.

First district game

game


here again
What a difference a year can
make.
A year ago the Ribault Trojans,
Baker High's opponent this week,
were one of the teams to beat in
the district. They defeated Raines
and gave the Wildcats a very hard
game before losing 28-14.
Quarterback Damian Flem-
ing had a lot of weapons at his
disposal and it took a tiebreaker
defeat to keep them from the dis-
trict title.
Fleming is still there for the
Trojans, but little else is the same.
Graduation and a continued F
grade spell attrition and an 0-2
start to the season. The shocking
thing is that it hasn't even been a
close 0-2. The Trojans have been
out-scored by a whopping 94-7.
That has to be a hard pill to
swallow for a team with as much
success as Ribault. It has to be
particularly hard for a talented
quarterback like Fleming, who
can run and throw the ball.
They started off the season
with a humiliating 60-0 defeat at
the hands of neighborhood rival
First Coast. The Trojans couldn't
manage any offense and couldn't
stop the Buccaneers.
The Trojans were able to move
the ball but two costly intercep-


st Ribault
tions for touchdowns and an
inability to score in First Coast
territory stopped them cold. The
rebuilding defense was unable to
stop the balanced First Coast of-
fense.
Fleming managed only 50
yards passing on the night.
The passing game was a little
more effective in a 34-7 loss to
Sandelwood. The combination of
Fleming and Charles Brown gave
the Trojans their only touchdown
so far this season, a 63-yard
hookup.
Last season Fleming averaged
180 yards a game passing, but
success has been lacking. The
fact that Ribault's first two losses
have come at the hands of much
bigger schools might have them
looking forward to testing them-
selves against the Wildcats.
But they are once again facing
a team with a balanced offense,
and though the Cats had a harder
time generating offensive punch
against Bradford than they did
against Crescent City and Trin-
ity, they are still 3-0 and very
dangerous.
There is plenty to play for since
this is the first district contest for
both Baker High and Ribault.

BOB GERARD I SPORTS
Going into Friday's Baker/
Bradford game there were all
kinds of potential story lines.
The battle between two unde-
feated teams.
A contest between a pair of
high-scoring spread offenses.
Two first-year coaches with
something to prove.
The oldest rivalry on either
team's schedule.
Any of those or a combination
of all would have worked nicely.
But instead what we got was good
old fashioned smash-mouth foot-
ball.
The 14-0 Wildcat win was
more of a heavyweight bout
where two good defenses hurled
haymakers at each other all night
long. This wasn't a game you'd
expect out of a couple of spread
teams, full of finesse and offen-
sive imagination.
In fact, there was very little of-
fense at all.
Neither team really could get
the best of the other's stingy de-
fense.
The Cats offense began on a
high note, striking first with an
impressive eight play, 6o-yard
drive capped by Jeremy Wan-
namaker's 2-yard touchdown
plunge and PAT.
Then the game bogged down
as the half wore on.
"It was good for the kids to be
in a game like that," said Coach
Ryan Sulkowski. "I've been
telling them that any team can
beat you if you don't show up to
play."
Sulkowski continues to be un-
happy with some of the mental
miscues that his team has been
producing.
"I have a whole lot of plays in
the playbook when it is second
and 4, but I don't have many for
when it is second and 24. We
have to cut down on the penal-
ties," he said.
Don't get me wrong it was
plenty exciting. Both teams
threatened on several occa-
sions in the half, but the de-
fenses stepped up and shut them
down. If you like a good game of
hard-nosed football this was the
contest for you. The Wildcat de-
fense, led by middle linebacker
Dakimby Hogan, put on another
exciting show.
Bradford drove into Wildcat
territory late in the half, thanks to
a pass from Austin Chipoletti to


Tremaine Harris. But the Wild-
cat front line turned around with
a pair of sacks to stop them cold.
Corey Mercer and Jarred Lee
burst in to trap Chipoletti on the
first sack, then William Wheeler
and Brandon Williams dropped
the quarterback to force a punt.
The Wildcat defense stifled
the Bradford running game in
the first half. The Tornadoes
could get nowhere, going into
the locker room with negative 11
yards on the ground.
Chipoletti had a little more
success through the air with 76
yards passing at the half.
The second half followed
much the same pattern. There
were moments of promise but
the defense continued to rise up.
The Cats had a long pass play go
through the hands of the receiver
and penalties hampered the Tor-
nadoes.
Bradford looked dangerous
on its second series when run-
ning back Dexter Clayton broke
through the first line of defense
and ran 65 yards into Wildcat
territory. Clayton and the Tor-
nadoes made it all the way to
the Wildcat 15 before they were
pushed back by a determined


BCHS defense. In the end the
drive came up empty after Mau-
rice Baker stopped the Tornado
runner on fourth down at the 19-
yard line.
The Wildcat defense was sti-
fling. Besides the long Clayton
run, they clogged the middle and
swarmed to the ball when the
Tornadoes tried to bounce it out-
side. Hogan, who pilots the de-
fense from his middle linebacker
position, had probably his best
game of the season.
It wasn't until the fourth quar-
ter that the Wildcats struck again.
The Tornadoes got a face mask
penalty on a punt return that
gave the Cats the ball in Bradford
territory at the 45-yard line.
Three straight Wannamaker
runs pushed the ball to the 22
and Ruben Jackson split the dis-
tance in half with a rush to the
11. Wannamaker tested the Tor-
nado defense three times before
he forced the ball over from the
1 yard line.
Kickoff is at 7:30 pm at Me-
morial Stadium.
The Wildcat JV got back on
the winning track this week, de-
feating West Nassau 22-14.


How opponents fared
Here's a look at how teams on the Wildcat football schedule fared
last weekend.
The Ribault Trojans continued to struggle, losing to Sandlewood 34-
8. Trojan quarterback Damian Fleming was harassed all night by the
Saints whose balanced running and passing game opened up Ribault's
defense. Fleming connected with Charles Brown for 126 yards of pass-
ing offense.
Suwannee County was pummeled by Fort White 52-22 behind 232
yards rushing from Alexis Blake. The Indian running game could not be
stopped by the Bulldogs, who fall to 1-2 on the season.
Trinity Christian got off to a great start against powerful Madison
County, racking up a 16-point lead, but then somebody woke up the
Cowboys and they galloped to a 42-16 victory. The Cowboys held An-
drew Buie to just 47 yards rushing on the game.
Baldwin fell to Paxon 30-22.
The Raines Vikings had an open week, as did Alachua Santa Fe and
West Nassau.
