THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


82nd Year, Vol. 10. Winner of 7 state awards for journalism excellence in 2010


Warrants

yield gun,

drugs and

some cash
The sheriffs department's
special response team [SRT]
assisted in the serving of two
warrants at west Macclenny ad-
dresses the morning of June 24,
resulting in two arrests and the
seizure of drugs, cash, a firearm
and other items associated with
the sale of
narcotics.
The
first raid
took place
about 5:30
at a rental
house oc-
cupied by
Tyrone
Reed, 34,
on South
Tyrone Reed Boulevard,
where police
found a baggie of crack cocaine,
a small amount of marijuana,
$351 in cash at two locations
and a .22 caliber pistol.
Mr. Reed, in a later inter-
view with sheriffs investigators
Mike Hauge and John Hardin,
admitted to selling marijuana
out of the residence and that the
crack was his.
He denied ownership of the
pistol, which he said belonged
to his sister. Because he was
aware of its presence, he was
charged with possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon.
Additional charges include
possession of the drugs with
intent to sell and possession of
paraphernalia.
Shortly
after, the
investiga-
tors and
SRT en-
tered the
nearby
residence
of Wesley
Belford,
27, and ar-
rested him
on multiple Wesley Belford
including
possession of marijuana with
intent to sell.
Police seized from a safe
$361, 37 grams of marijuana, a
scale and small plastic baggies
commonly used in drug sales.
A female occupant of the house
was not charged.
The warrant was based on
sales of marijuana to confiden-
tial informants on June 21.
The sheriffs department
routinely uses the SRT team
when serving warrants of this
nature where armed persons
may be inside.

FIREWORKS: they're taboo


Risk accelerates lo

with burning ban
MIKE ANDERSON
PRESS STAFF
All across the United States people are getting ready
for the nation's birthday party. They're cleaning grills,
buying new flags and stocking up on things that go
boom and light up the sky.
But before Fourth of July celebrants in Florida and
Georgia ignite the first fuse, consider this. Fireworks
that explode or deliver their colorful payload while air-
borne are illegal for personal use.
And if anyone thinks the risk is worth the potential
price, think again. Using illegal fireworks is a misde-
meanor offense punishable by up to a year in jail or a
$1,ooo fine, or both. If someone's property catches on
fire as a result, additional charges could be filed.
State and local officials say there have been enough
wildfires plaguing Florida and Georgia without increas-
ing the risk further with fireworks shows in peoples'
driveways and backyards.
"It's not a particularly good time to be doing it," said
Kurt Wisner, a Florida Division of Forestry spokesman
at the Suwannee Forestryloo Center. "The conditions
are so dry right now things will ignite with the least ig-
nition. Sparks from bottle rockets and things like that
can start fires.
"I know we've had a little rain lately and hopefully
we'll have more. But it's not enough yet for people to

Fire conummand set up at Olustee


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
As state and federal forestry of-
ficials work to contain the roughly
13,ooo-acre Impassable Bay Fire . L
Complex in the Osceola National
Forest and the nearly 284,000-
acre Honey Prairie Fire Complex
in the Okefenokee Wildlife Ref-
uge, a command center manned
by wildfire personnel from around
the nation has been opened at the
Florida Gateway College training
center near Olustee.
An agreement between the FGC
and the US Division of Forestry
will place 25-50 forestry officials
at the center 24 hours a day, seven
days a week "for the foreseeable
future," states a June 22 press re-
lease from the college.
"The center was chosen based
on its ability to provide sufficient
infrastructure, such as phone lines
and Internet, and meet the needs of
forestry officials," the release reads.
Ground and air operations as
well as logistics in North Florida and
South Georgia will be managed from
there.
Stored on the property off US 90
west of Olustee are ample supplies of
military-style Meals-Ready-to-Eat,
bottled water and replacement parts
for heavy equipment used in fighting - --.-
wildfires. -
With help from the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry [FDOF], local fire-
fighters have been responding to
smaller fires sparked by lightening
and other causes throughout the
county in recent weeks.
About 10 acres burned near Sapp
Road from an unknown cause last
weekend and lightening sparked a 3-acre fire north of Noel Road the
evening of June 27 along with a smaller fire south of Fred Harvey
Road.
County Fire Chief Richard Dolan said those fires were contained

within a few hours with assistance from
state personnel.
"They took care of the 3-acre fire and
we took care of the little one and did some
structure protection on Noel Road as [the
fire] started heading south," he said.
In a separate incident, a semi-trail-
er packed with pine needles burned up
overnight June 23-24 also in the area of
Sapp Road.
"They called us after the fact," the fire
chief said. "The fire marshal is investigat-
ing to see if it was arson."
The day before, county units were dis-
patched to assist Union County firefight-
ers east of SR 121 where some 20 homes
were threatened by a wildfire.
But thanks to heavy rain early this week, Chief Dolan said as of late
afternoon June 28, there weren't any active wildfires in the countybe-

Majority

of officer

budgets

are higher
JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
A majority of the county's
constitutional officers are ask-
ing for larger budgets in the
coming 2011-12 fiscal year in
anticipation of higher health
insurance, salary and operating
costs.
Budget requests submitted
to Baker County Commission
staff recently show year-to-year
increases ranging from 10 per-
cent for the clerk of courts to 1.8
percent for the sheriffs office.
Property Appraiser Tim
Sweat, however, turned in a
draft budget reducing his of-
fice's expected spending by
3.5 percent, or $25,545, while
including a 5-percent hike in
health insurance and 3-percent
bump in employee salaries.
Tax Collector Gene Harvey's
proposed budget isn't due to
the county commission until
August, though commissioners
have planned to start meeting
on the 2011-12 spending plan
July 18.
The new fiscal year begins
October 1.
County Manager C.J.
Thompson e-mailed all five
constitutional officers, includ-
ing Supervisor of Elections Nita
Crawford, on May 23 express-
ing the commission's desire to
include the raises and asking
that they assume the health in-
surance increase.
"Please make sure that your
employees understand that this
is just the beginning stages of
the budget and employee raises
are far from certain," he wrote.
Sheriff Joey Dobson's June 1
letter to commissioners, which
accompanied his budget re-
quest, noted that while his bud-
get request was "as conserva-
tive as possible," rising costs for
necessary items increased the
current year's spending plan
by 1.8 percent to $3,617,942 for
the coming year.
"This proposal contains no
additional personnel, proj-
ects or equipment ... We are
requesting only the continued
maintenance and operation at
the current level," Sheriff Dob-
son wrote.
Changes made by the state
to the Florida Retirement Sys-
tem requiring that employees
contribute to their pensions is
expected to save the sheriffs of-
fice more than $100oo,ooo in re-
tirement contributions.
Meanwhile, the net effect
of salary increases and cuts
to overtime and holiday pay
linked to changes at the federal
level could mean an additional
$62,000 in personnel spend-
ing.
But, as the sheriff noted in
his letter to the board, his bud-
get request for personnel is still
less than the amount approved

use extreme caution outdoors. A lit cigarette
carelessly tossed out the window of a pass-
ing automobile could easily start a fire "in the
drought conditions we're having now," Mr.
Wisner said.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission
offers the following safety tips:
* Do not allow young children to play with
fireworks under any circumstances. Spar-
klers, considered by many to be the ideal
"safe" firework for the young, burn at very
high temperatures and can easily ignite cloth-
ing. Children cannot understand the danger
involved with fireworks and may not act ap-
propriately in case of emergency.
* Older children should be permitted to use
fireworks only under close adult supervision.
* Do not allow any running or horseplay.
* Set off fireworks outdoors in a clear area,
away from houses, dry leaves, or grass and
other flammable materials.
* Keep a bucket of water nearby for emer-
gencies and for pouring on fireworks that fail
to ignite or explode.
* Do not try to relight or handle malfunc-
tioning fireworks. Soak them with water and
throw them away.
* Be sure other people are out of range be-
fore lighting fireworks.
* Never light fireworks in a container, espe-
cially a glass or metal container.
* Keep unused fireworks away from firing
areas.
* Store fireworks in a cool, dry place.
* Check instructions for special storage di-
rections.
* Observe local laws.
* Never have any portion of your body di-
rectly over a firework while lighting.
* Do not experiment with homemade fire-
works.

But, he said, so-called "mop
up" operations were ongoing at
the Sapp Road fire, the 18o-plus-
acre burn south of Northeast
Florida State Hospital from two
weeks ago and another fire west
of CR 127 N. behind Dinkins
New Congregational Methodist
Church that began last week.
"With mop ups, they're put-
ting out hot spots, any open
flames or smoldering spots so


none of the embers are picked up
and get outside the containment
area," said Chief Dolan.
Wildfires have ravaged hun-
dreds of thousands of acres
throughout Northeast Florida
and Southeast Georgia since
May, recently taking the lives of
two FDOF firefighters. A mo-
ment of reflection was observed
the morning of June 25 to honor
the memories of Josh Burch and
Brett Fulton, who died in the line
of duty June 20.


Shots fired at house
A relative who was recently released from prison was named as a
suspect in the early morning hail of bullets that damaged the front of a
residence on Eloise St. in northwest Macclenny on June 23.
Both occupants of the structure and a next door neighbor in the nor-
mally quiet residential enclave off CR 23A told Deputy Koty Crews they
heard gunfire around 3:45 that morning.
Cynthia Parsels said later that morning before 9:oo am, she discov-
ered several bullet holes on her porch, including on pillars and a rock-
ing chair.
Deputy Crews said he found five bullet holes in the area, and re-
trieved the five .45 caliber bullets. Two shell casings were picked up
from the street in front of the address, and police documented tire
tracks where a vehicle likely turned around.
Neighbor Pearl Gaines said she saw a small, dark truck slowly driv-
ing away after she heard the shots.
Carolyn Velleca, who lives in the house with Ms. Parsels, told police
of the relative-suspect, who she said "has a lot of animosity towards
her."
The male relative was not immediately located.

As you prob-

week's column, ROBERi
my wife Kelley
had her gall bladder out. She's
been feeling bad for going on
eight months and the doctor said
it was because of a very bad gall
bladder full of stones.
So out it came.
It's quite fascinating how they
do it. Gone are the "old days"
when they cut an eight-inch in-
cision into your belly, reached in
there and yanked that sucker out.
Nowadays it's done laparo-
scopic. I don't have any idea what
that means, I just know that in-
stead of one big cut there are four
inch-long incisions. They blow
air into you to fill you up like a
balloon, stick in a camera and
go to work. A little snip and out
it comes.
Her gall bladder, if you must
know, was full of stones that look
and feel like calcium sand spurs.
The biggest was the size of a
quarter. They stitched her up on
the inside so she wouldn't have
any scars, and super glued her
wounds closed.
"You're kidding me, right?" I
asked the doctor.
"No. Super glue. No bandages.
Nothing."
"You ever made a mistake and
glue your finger to a patient?"
"You'd better hope not or
you're taking me home for din-
ner."
Whod've thunk? When the
bottle says a million and one
uses, they aren't kidding. Last
week I wrote about Bob's Home
Surgery Kit, but I never imagined
Super Glue. Truth is stranger
than fiction yet again.
Not only can you glue Gran-
ny's candy dish back together be-
fore your wife gets home, you can
glue your wife together and send
her home.
Which is exactly what they
did.
In the modern age of HMOs
you have to have brain surgery
to stay overnight in the hospital.

They can take something out of

Kelley literally came out of
surgery at 9:oo am and was in

ATTER bound.
"How do you
iERARD feel?"
"Didn't you
ask me that?"
"And you never answered."
"Oh. I feel okay for someone
who left a major organ behind in
the hospital."
I guess that's how they can
send you home the same day.
You do feel pretty good. You are
still in the arms of Morpheus
even though you're walking and
talking.
I remember having major
back surgery 15 years ago and
they sent me home in under 24
hours. I was up walking around
sitting in a chair and joking with
people a couple of hours after
surgery.
I wasn't joking the next day
when all the anesthesia wore off.
Neither was Kelley. When I asked
how she felt, she told me, in no
uncertain terms.

easy because Kelley's been a good
patient; all she asks for is cran-
berry juice.
So long as I can get her cran-
berry juice and her pain pills on
time she's fine.
I'm disappointed I didn't ask
for one of the gall stones for a
keeper. The big one and two of
the little ones would make inter-
esting jewelry. A pair of earrings
and a necklace would not only
be unusual but would also be a
fascinating conversation starter.
Spray paint them and apply the
glitter.
"What are those? They look
like some sort of sea creature or
shell fish."
"Oh no, those are my gall
stones."
That would either start a con-
versation or stop it cold.
Now, several days after the
trip to the hospital Kelley is feel-
ing much better. Thanks for all
the kind words you've sent her.

We posted to our Facebook friends this
week, "July 4th is right around the corner!
What kind of fireworks do you and your
family like? With the high drought condi-
tions will you still shoot off fireworks?"
Here's what they had to say...

County Manager C.J. Thompson:
"The county is currently under a burn
ban which prohibits the use of fire-
works. We are in daily contact with
the Florida Division of Forestry evalu-
ating the conditions."


Cindy Oglesby: "Pretty sure most
counties in the state are under the
same ban."
Tracey Moorman Mchood:"We are
just going to havefun. We don't need
fireworks to have fun and celebrate
the 4th of July."
Lyon Marc: "Bahaaaa! Burn ban,

several stores are selling fireworks
by the truck load. Is that going to be
enforced like the,'No Sunday alcohol


Richard Clark: "Are your serious?
Not only is it too dry, a burn ban is in
place and it is illegal too light any-
thing that leaves the ground. Hope-
fully law enforcement will be cruising
the neighborhoods ready to write ci-
tations."
Jennifer Sizemore Meadows: "I
hate live fireworks! The lit up display
isn't enough to outweigh the awful
smell and the noise. I'd rather stay
home and watch them on TV and
switch channels so I can watch them


in DC and NY, etc. I also hate that
some of our neighbors are rude and
continueto set them off after 10 pm.
It's hard for people - kids especially
- to go to sleep when fireworks are
being set off next door!"
Janet Davis: "With the dry weath-
er I would hope people would leave
the fireworks to the professionals in
a controlled environment. However,
I too have some of those rude neigh-
bors that fire them until all hours of
the morning. We have never shot off
fireworks, we have dogs that are ter-
rified of them and have to put them
in the bathroom with a radio playing
to keep them calm."


----- GUEST COMMENTARY -----


Lengthy re-drawing of districts begins


JANET ADKINS
Member Florida House of
Representatives District 12

The first week of redistrict-
ing meetings were held last week
with two meetings in Tallahas-
see, and one each in Pensacola,
Fort Walton Beach and Panama
City. After 13 hours of driving
and 13 hours of listening to pub-
lic testimony, it is clear that the
effort to draw new [legislative]
districts will be tedious.
This is my first experience in
the redistricting process and I am
honored to have been appointed
to serve on the Redistricting
Committee. While other mem-
bers were thankful to dodge the
"extra work," I enjoy the oppor-
tunity to be a part of history and
to learn the mechanics behind re-
districting.
Every 10 years, Florida re-
draws the political boundary
lines of state legislative and con-
gressional districts to reflect
changes in population, as de-
termined by the most recent US
Census and as required by the
Florida and US Constitution. The
term "reapportionment" refers
to the task of dividing the state's
population by the number of con-
gressional seats apportioned to
the state. The task of "redistrict-
ing" is the redrawing of political
boundaries to reflect change in
the population.
Between now and September
1, members for the Florida House
and Senate will hold 26 public
hearings throughout the state to
hear from Floridians on how they
wish the new lines to be drawn.
The various redistricting com-
mittees will then begin drawing


Florida House, Florida Senate
and US congressional boundar-
ies. It is important to note that no
new maps have been drafted yet.
There are an infinite number of
ways that the 120 House, 40 Sen-
ate and 27 Congressional seats
can be drawn; the first step is to
listen to the public so we under-
stand where they have commu-
nities of common interests and
how they want to be represented
in their legislative branch.
During the 2012 legislative
session, the new boundaries will
be adopted. The legislative ses-
sion will begin early next year,
starting on January 10 and end-
ing in early March. This will al-
low time for the courts to validate
the maps for use in the 2012 elec-
tions.
There are many complexities
involved in drawing new district
lines. The principle of "One Per-
son, One Vote" in Reynolds v.
Sims forbids major disparities
in the creation of congressional
and state legislative districts.
These potential disparities are
commonly referred to as the dis-
trict's deviation from the ideal
population number. To deter-
mine the ideal population num-
ber, Florida's total population of
18,801,301 would be divided by
120 house districts, 40 state sen-
ate districts and 27 congressional
districts.
The Voting Rights Act pro-
hibits any practice or procedure,
including certain redistricting
practices, which impair the abil-
ity of a minority community to
elect candidates on an equal ba-
sis with non-minority voters.
It was quite interesting to hear
the thoughts from individuals in
the Panhandle. The northern


part of the Panhandle is primar-
ily agriculture and the south-
ern portion focused on tourism
and the big question was should
district boundaries be drawn
horizontally to reflect the com-
munities of interest (such as ag-
riculture and tourism), or verti-
cally to reflect county lines where
possible.
Many rural counties do not
have sufficient population for
a full House or Senate district
and must be grouped with other
counties. Then it becomes a mat-
ter of where do you split a county.
Some expressed interest in "like"
neighborhoods being grouped
together and others asked that
their city be made "whole" within
the same district.
In Tallahassee, much concern
was expressed over congressio-
nal districts, but in Pensacola,
the focus was primarily with state
and House districts.
Concern was voiced regard-
ing the newly passed amend-
ments 5 and 6 dealing with "Fair
Districts." Every two years, each
lawmaker takes an oath to up-
hold and defend the Constitu-
tion of the State of Florida and
the United States Constitution.
These amendments are now part
of Florida's Constitution and the
Legislature will abide by their re-
quirements.
The committee heard from the
AARP, NAACP, League of Wom-
en Voters, ACLU, Tea Party, Cof-
fee Party, Democratic Executive
Committee, Farm Bureau, Re-
publican Executive Committee
and the Chamber of Commerce.
We heard from private citizens,
school board members, city com-
missioners, a soil and water con-
servation supervisor, a mayor


and a representative from the su-
pervisor of elections office.
The 2012 congressional dis-
tricts should have a population
of 696,345. Baker County is cur-
rently grouped in Congressional
District 4, which has an overage
of 48,073. This means that the
district will need to decrease in
size. Senate districts should have
a population of 470,033. Baker
County is currently grouped in
Senate District 3, which has an
overage of 25,048 and will need
to decrease in size. Baker County
is currently in House district 12,
which is 2,676 over the ideal pop-
ulation of 156,678.
I encourage you to learn more
about Florida's redistricting pro-
cess and to sign up for e-mail up-
dates by visiting www.floridare-
districting.org. Also, the Florida
House of Representatives has
launched a web-based tool called
"MyDistrictBuilder" that is avail-
able to the public so that citizens
can propose their version of a
redistricting plan. You can ac-
cess this tool by clicking "MyDi-
strictBuilder" from the www.
floridaredistricting.org website.
This online tool will be used by
both Floridians and legislators to
propose new boundary lines for
congressional and state legisla-
tive districts.
As a member of the Redistrict-
ing Committee, it is important
that I hear from you in how you
want your community to be rep-
resented. Please mark your cal-
endar for July 11 at Florida State
College's downtown campus. We
will hold two meetings that day;
2:00-4:00 pm and 6:00-8:00
pm.

Baker County.

Battery on pregnant girlfriend

Police respond to a rash of domestic calls


A complaint for felony aggravated domes-
tic battery was filed on a live-in boyfriend fol-
lowing a confrontation at an E. Ohio Ave. ad-
dress the evening of June 25.
Joshua Cuevas, 23, allegedly struck and
shoved pregnant girlfriend Jennifer Brooks,
29, during an argument about 9:45 at their
residence. Deputy Daryl Mobley also filed a
complaint for battery against Randy Michael,
36, of Hilliard for accosting Mr. Cuevas.
They and other witnesses gave conflicting
versions of events that evening that resulted
in Mr. Cuevas going to the emergency room
of Fraser Hospital for treatment of lacerations
to the right hand when he put a fist through a
window.
Deputy Mobley noted that all parties to the
melee except Ms. Brooks appeared to be in-
toxicated.
In another domestic incident, Christopher
Gay, 34 was arrested for battery and child
abuse, at his South Boulevard residence in


Macclenny.
Crystal Gay, 41, accused her husband of
pinning her and her daughter, age 16, in a
doorway during an argument in their bed-
room that began with accusations about his
alleged drug use.
* Brandi Estep, 31, of Glen St. Mary was
arrested early on June 25 for accosting her
boyfriend Tommy Bryant, 34, outside Mac's
Liquors in downtown Macclenny.
The two were arguing just after midnight
over whether they should leave the bar. Dep-
uty Leo Clements said both parties smelled
strongly of alcohol.
* One person was arrested for aggravated
battery and criminal complaints were filed
against four others for battery and aggravated
battery following a fight in north Sanderson
the evening of June 20.
All the participants are female and three
of them claim to be pregnant, resulting in the
felony complaints.


Deputy Daniel Nichols arrested Bianncia
Jackson, 28, for attacking Ami Copeland, 23,
and Aisha Gilbert, 31, and a complaint was
filed against a 17-year-old for attacking Ms.
Jackson. All are from the Sanderson area.
The officer was told the fight started in the
parking lot of Cuz's One Stop in Sanderson
when the juvenile struck Ms. Jackson.
The participants then moved several
blocks north to the neighborhood near Tony
Givens Rd. and CR 229 when a larger melee
occurred.
* Deputy Daryl Mobley filed battery com-
plaints following another fight involving sev-
eral participants, this one early on June 22 off
Timberlane Dr. near Macclenny.
They include Lauren Gainey, 19, of Jack-
sonville and a 17-year-old female for fighting
each other, and against Shelby Albino, 19,
for allegedly attacking Michael Schroeer, 20.
Both are from Glen.


Offered to trade drugs- at physician's office


Sheriffs investigators arrested
a Macclenny man the evening of
June 21 for offering to trade his
stash of marijuana for prescrip-
tion pills in the waiting room of
a physician's office on South 5th
St.
Travis Johnston, 22, initially
denied the allegation relayed to
Sgt. Brad Dougherty that he was
soliciting the trades from pa-
tients in the office of Dr. Charles
Scarbrough late that afternoon.
Investigator Mike Hauge
found the suspect in the waiting
room, and Mr. Johnston, when
questioned outside the office,
initially said he was waiting for a
ride from John Paul (Pumpkin)
Mann, 42, of Sanderson, who
was waiting to see the doctor.
The investigator said Mr.
Johnston became nervous and
edgy during the interview, and


continued to cast his
eyes in the direction of
Mr. Mann's Chevrolet
pickup parked nearby.
He told several differ-
ent versions of how he
got to Dr. Scarbrough's
office, including that he
walked, but his girlfriend
affirmed they both had -
been brought there by
Mr. Mann. ,
The drug-sniffing ca-
nine Cash was brought


Travis Joh


to the scene, and alerted to the
scent of drugs inside the pickup,
where officers found 27 grams
of marijuana in a plastic baggie
stashed near the console.
The amount was sufficient to
book Mr. Johnston on a felony
possession count.
In other drug-related arrests:
* Carl Dillard, 19, of Mac-


clenny was charged
with misdemeanor pos-
session after a deputy
found a small baggie in
his pants pocket during
a weapons search.
Deputy Ben Ander-
son questioned Mr. Dil-
lard when he found him
walking along George
Hodges Rd. in the late
morning of June 26. He
inston said the pedestrian be-
came agitated and con-
sented to the search.
* Lt. Adam Faircloth arrested


two male juveniles for misde-
meanor possession after finding
them parked the evening of June
24 on the campus of Macclenny
Elementary.
The officer, who lives on the
property, came upon the youths,
a 17-year-old from St. George
and a 16-year-old from Glen, in a
wooded area off Wild Kitten Dr.
about 9:oo pm.
Lt. Faircloth confiscated a
small baggie of marijuana and a
plastic bottle used as a smoking
"bong."


Quote was misattributed


A June 23 article on page one
of The Baker County Press in-
correctly attributed comments to
County Manager C.J. Thompson
that actually were made by archi-
tect Erik Kasper in a memo to the
county manager.
Mr. Kasper stated that revised
drawings for a proposed new
county administration build-
ing would be "quite significant"
and would cost about $23,000.
He also stated in his memo: "In


speaking with the mechanical en-
gineer we discovered another ad-
vantage to making this change.
Because the original design was
divided into separate enclosed
spaces we had nine separate air
conditioning systems. Now that
the new design combines these
spaces we can reduce the num-
ber of units and save additional
money on installation and main-
tenance."
The Press regrets the error.


Robbery at the city park


Three Macclenny suspects,
two of them juveniles, have been
implicated in a strong-arm rob-
bery of another Macclenny man
at Memorial Park on the city's
northside the afternoon of June
24.
The victim, 22-year-old Bryce
Gibson, told police he was seat-
ed on a picnic table about 1:24
waiting for his brother when ap-
proached by the trio. One of them
struck him on the left side of the
face and a suspect he later identi-
fied as a 17-year-old took off with
his cell phone.
Deputy Robbie Aberly and
Sgt. James Marker soon located
two of the suspects who matched
a detailed description given by
Mr. Gibson. The 17-year-old ad-
mitted to speaking with the vic-
tim at the park, but said the topic
was cigarettes. He denied the


thefts and would not identify the
two others though he admitted
he was acquainted with them.
The second suspect, age 14,
was contacted shortly after and
admitted to riding off on Mr.
Gibson's bike, insisting he did so
only to put air in the tires. He told
the officers where he had stashed
the bicycle off MLK Dr.
Both were charged with sec-
ond-degree felonies after positive
identification by the victim.
The third suspect, Andrew
Garcia, 18, was interviewed later
at a residence off MLK and ad-
mitted confronting the victim,
but told Deputy Aberly that Mr.
Gibson was not struck.
The cell phone was recovered
from Mr. Garcia's sister, but the
victim could not make a positive
identification, so charges against
him pend.

at a home under construction off
Edna Manning Rd. near Glen St.
Mary.
Contractor Calvin Raulerson
of B&R Home Builders again ar-
rived at the property, this time on
the morning of June 20, to find
it had been broken into, stripped
of copper wire and a bathtub with
water jets similar to one stolen
before.
He is building the house for
David Parrish, and the incident is
similar to one that occurred over-
night on May 23.
No damage and loss estimate
was noted in the recent case, but
Mr. Raulerson told Deputy Chris
Walker it equals the previous
raid when the loss was placed at
$5500.
A rear door was kicked in to
gain entry
In another costly burglary,


this one also at an unoccupied
residence, the inventory of sto-
len household appliances totaled
$2100 in value.
Jodie Johnson of Macclenny
called police on June 20 when
she discovered the home on
Richardson Rd. south of Sander-
son had been entered through a
bedroom window.
The residence once occupied
by her mother has been empty
five years. She told Deputy Dan-
iel Nichols it has been ransacked
before.
Among the stolen property
were a stove, refrigerator, freez-
er, washer/dryer, two televisions
and two stereos, and a micro-
wave oven.
Ms. Johnson had last checked
it June 6.
In other theft and vandalism
reports:
* Donald White of Macclenny
reported on June 24 a shed on


his rental property on Barbara
Circle was entered. A window
was broken to gain entry and sev-
eral boxes containing unspecified
items were missing.
He told Deputy Ben Anderson

Stole, sold scrap


from Glen property


Police arrested a Glen St. Mary
man the afternoon of June 20 for
allegedly carting off scrap metal
from a residence on CR 125 north
and selling it at an east Macclen-
ny scrap yard.
Deputy Ben Anderson said he
was contacted by Robert Foster
of Glen, owner of the scrap, after
the latter said he followed a ve-
hicle driven by Robert Sanders,
25, to Scrappy Pappy's yard on
US 90.
There, the suspect sold the
175-pound load of metal for $19,
a sum that Deputy Anderson said
he recovered and turned over to
Mr. Foster. Scrap yard employ-
ees confirmed that Mr. Sanders
brought the metal to the loca-
tion, and Mr. Foster identified it
as having once been on his prop-
erty.
Mr. Sanders was arrested and
booked for petty theft.
In other cases the past week,
both of them for shoplifting at
the Macclenny Walmart, one

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


GLEN ST. MARYTOWN COUNCIL


Votes for Andrews St. closure


The Glen St. Mary Town Council voted
unanimously the evening of June 21 to close a
one-block portion of Andrews St. to fit an ex-
pansion plan of the First Baptist Church.
The church owns both sides of the street
west from Lincoln St. to Taber Blvd. and plans
to use the area for added parking. The town
will retain utility easements as before.
The council initially planned to take up
the request by the church to close a portion
of Taber in front of the main church buildings
on both sides of that street. The previous eve-
ning, the Baker County Commission failed to
act on the petition amid opposition by neigh-
bors and others.
That rendered the matter moot before the
Glen board since Taber is a county road, and
it was removed from the agenda.
Representatives from the church, along
with a handful of others concerned that Glen
would act on the Taber closure, filled the
small council room - an unusual occurrence.
The church urged Andrews' closure to allow
for parking and natural flow of storm water
into a retention ditch planned for the recently
purchased tract to the north.
Bobby Crews, who lives on Lincoln two
blocks north of Andrews, questioned whether
the drainage flow could be arranged without
closure. Chad Grimm, a Jacksonville planner
who prepared the landscape design for the
expansion, said closing the road will allow for
a natural grade, rather than more costly pip-
ing under the road surface.
Following the vote, supporters broke into
applause before filing out of the room.
In other business during the regular
monthly meeting - the first with newly-
sworn council member Tracy Lamb - the
board decided to pursue a design and super-
vision alternative to a proposal submitted re-
cently by Mittauer and Associates of Orange
Park.
The proposal has a minimum price tag of
$10,9oo in fixed costs plus hourly charges of
$60 for "resident observation."
Mayor Juanice Padgett suggested that
Glen could get by cheaper on the upcoming
installation of a sewer line along Lincoln Ave.
from Geitgey north to US 90.
The mayor said she discussed the project


Jobless rate slides


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The jobless rate in Baker
County continued its slow slide
downward in May, dropping to 9
percent, or lo091 workers.
That's 1.5 percent below the
unemployment rate for May,
2010 and three-tenths of a per-
cent under the previous month's
rate.
While still sizable, the number
of able-bodied workers without
jobs in Baker County is below
Florida's unemployment rate of
10.5 percent, Duval County's rate
of 10.3 percent, Clay County's
rate of 9.1 percent and Nassau
County's rate of 9.3 percent, ac-
cording to recently released fig-
ures from the state's Agency for
Workforce Innovation.
Union and Bradford counties,
however, had lower jobless rates
of 7.7 percent and 8.5 percent, re-
spectively. Both are small, rural
Northeast Florida counties like
Baker with a heavy concentration
of state agencies jobs.
Though employers here hired
32 employees between April and
May, layoffs at Northeast Florida
State Hospital [NEFSH], which
become effective July 1, will al-
most certainly mean a spike in
the county's unemployment rate.
"Most local businesses are
still struggling pretty bad," said
Chamber of Commerce Direc-
tor Darryl Register. "And with
what's going on at NEFSH, we all
expect the local [unemployment]
number to go up."


Expected to rise again
with recent layoffs at
the state hospital

At least 70 employees were
eliminated at the state-managed
mental health facility in Mac-
clenny. However, those affected
were given an exclusive opportu-
nity to apply for 48 positions that
remain available, explained Kim
Hodges, the hospital's director of
human resources.
The jobs include nurses, ther-
apists, some 20 so-called human
services workers and other di-
rect-care staff.
The layoffs resulted from a 10
percent budget reduction deliv-
ered to the hospital by the Flor-
ida Legislature and signed into
law by Governor Rick Scott in
late May.
Moreover, business owners
are facing uncertainty about the
impact of other cuts at the state
level, like the requirement that
public employees start contribut-
ing 3 percent of their salaries to
the Florida Retirement System.


slightly
"Local businesses are con-
cerned, and I'm concerned, about
how the actions of the legislature
will affect them," said Mr. Regis-
ter. "We're really heavy with pub-
lic employment here - 1000ooo or
more at NEFSH, 500-plus with
the school district, over 300 at
the prison in Olustee and a num-
ber of folks who work at state
prisons in nearby counties. The 3
percent cut, what's that going to
do to the disposable income they
spend in our community. Folks
will still have a mortgage pay-
ment, a car payment or two, but
will they continue to spend that
3 percent at local restaurants or
the dry cleaners?"
One of the few businesses hir-
ing is the Walmart Distribution
Center.
"That's something they
haven't done in a long time," Mr.
Register said.
Local unemployment statis-
tics are compiled monthly by the
state and the US Department of
Labor. They're available at www.
worksourcefl.com/research/la-
bor market information.aspx.


earlier that day with a person said to be famil-
iar with utility construction who advised the
project could be completed for less than the
engineer estimated. She declined to identify
him.
Mittauer, the town's project engineer for
the upcoming water utility installation north
of US 90, estimated $97,700 for a gravity flow
system or $62,000 for a force main connect-
ing to the main line along US 90.
Councilman Dickie Foster, a plumbing
contractor, urged the mayor to pursue anoth-
er avenue with alternatives including 6-inch
mains that do not require the DEP permit-
ting or a project engineer. He said the smaller
main lines could easily handle the flow.
Mr. Foster argued the Mittauer quotes
are excessive for the 13 residences that are
expected to connect to the sewer extension.
They include eight apartments on Taber and
residences on both sides of Lincoln.
Mayor Padgett is recommending that Glen


St. Mary dip into its $255,000 reserves to the
tune of $50,000 for the sewer extension, then
repaythe money with revenues from the $750
connect fees and the remainder from new wa-
ter customers in the north town.
The impetus for the sewer extension stems
from concerns of the health department that
septic tank placement is too dense in that
neighborhood and will result in continuing
problems.
* The board authorized Mayor Padgett to
apply for an economic development grant to
extend utilities south to Interstate 10 to spur
development.
Last month, Rick Davis of Davis and Da-
vis Enterprises told the board he has plans
to replace the Citgo station on the northwest
corner of the interchange with a large travel
store.
The Envision Glen master growth plan ad-
opted several years ago anticipates extension
of sewer and water lines to the interstate.

Youths collect water for firemen

Businesses donate 56 cases, more to come


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
A group of contestants prepar-
ing to compete in the 2011 Miss
Florida Forestry State Scholar-
ship Pageant, which took place
at Baker County Middle School
last weekend, were in Macclenny
during the afternoon of June 24
collecting water for a very impor-
tant cause.
These young ladies, all ti-
tle holders from the 2010 Miss
Florida Forestry Pageant, spent
several hours visiting business-
es and local merchants to seek
donations of bottled water for
thirsty firefighters.
In one afternoon, they collect-
ed 56 cases of water.
Bebe Thrift, an experienced
pageant volunteer, was hosting
the girls during the afternoon be-
fore the pageant dress rehearsal
when she got word that firefight-
ers in the area were in need of
bottled drinking water.
"Some people might see it as
the state's responsibility to pro-
vide water, but if the firefighters
suddenly run out they need the
water right then and the state
can't respond fast enough," she
said.
On learning of the water
shortage, the group of pageant
contestants immediately saw an
opportunity to personally fight
the fire in their own way.
The girls all agreed collecting
water would be a way to show
support for the men and women
who have been risking their own
safety as they worked around the
clock in many parts of north Flor-
ida battling forest fires.
All water donations are being
transported to the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry's regional office
in Lake City, then distributed in
surrounding counties.
CVS Drugstore, Burkins Chev-
rolet, Thrift Log Homes and Gib-
son McDonald Furniture were
among the businesses to receive
a visit. The ladies, all wearing
their tiaras, sashes and matching
dark green Florida Forestry Pag-
eant T-shirts, posed for a photo
with Gibson McDonald owner
Joel Barber whose store donated
28 cases of water.
"It's a great idea to help peo-
ple," said Jillian Hodges of Baker
County.
Britanny Wallace, represent-
ing Columbia County, said, "It's

been such fun helping out the
firefighters like this."
The 2010 Florida Forestry
Pageant queen Amanda Finley
was in the group.
"Last Saturday I drove by
some of the affected areas and
you can see just how much the
fire has burned. All the smoke
and damage - TV doesn't do it
justice. And think about all the
wildlife that perished," she said.
"You can see the loggers working
now just trying to do something
meaningful with the trees that
are left, trying to make a positive
point out of it, but it's just been
so devastating."
She recalled seeing fire trucks
parked outside of people's homes
in an effort to prevent flying ash
from igniting roofs.
"This is what we can do to help
fight the wildfires -filling the
back of our firefighter's trucks
with drinking water," she said.
"As reigning queens, it's really
important to collect water. It's
our job to do this," said Morgan
McDuffie, also of Baker County.
The collecting effort should
extend through the month of
July. To donate water, please
contact Sydney Ferreira at 307-
8442 or San and William Beck-
am at 553-0117.

Storm snaps trees,

downs power lines
Mary Walker surveys damage to her property at the corner of Stansell and N.
4th streets after a sudden severe storm with sustained 60-plus mph winds
that swept through Macclenny about 4:30 pm June 24 causing street flooding,
power outages and downed trees. Nearby resident Colvin Cox was on the front
porch of his home on N. 4th Street when lightning struck an oak tree and broke
its trunk in half. The falling tree soon snapped two nearby power lines."I saw
it hit and I saw it fall," he said. "It was loud." Macclenny Fire Chief Buddy Dug-
ger, who appeared later at the scene, reported similar incidents all over the
city, one involving a tree that took out the front and rear windshield of a car. A
Florida Power & Light lineman dispatched to help repair downed power lines
said, "It's going to be a long night."

Weight loss journey rewarded

Given makeover, trip to Hollywood and more

Kendra Morgan's weight loss
story could easily be the subject
of a reality television show.
More than a year ago, Ms.
Morgan, who then weighed 200
pounds, became determined to
reclaim the slender shape she
had in high school.
Not only did she succeed, she
did it beyond her wildest dreams,
totally transforming her life in
the process.
After graduating from Baker
County High School in 1995 and
moving to Alaska, she began put-
ting on weight.
"My father was transferred to
Alaska and unless you can han-
dle 60 degrees below zero you
stay indoors most of the time,"
she remembers. "I wasn't active
like I had been in high school
and that's when the weight gain
started."
Ms. Morgan eventually re-
turned and once again settled
into life in Baker County. By her
own admission, she wasn't care-
ful about her diet and the pounds
continued to accumulate.
"I had become mother to three
step children when I got married,
plus I was working. When it came
to cooking, I usually just did what
was easiest to get on the table,
like pizza and lasagna," she said.
From time to time she tried
different diets - Atkins, Weight
Watchers, Nutrisystem - with
few results.
As her weight crept up to 200
pounds, physical problems be-
gan to manifest - high blood
pressure, elevated cholesterol,
hormonal imbalances and even
kidney problems.
She knew she needed to lose
weight and her family doctor
warned her that she was in seri-
ous trouble if she didn't. So, she
joined a local gym.
Even so, she still lacked the
discipline to go regularly.

It was a conversation with
her father-in-law that put her on
the road to change. A chemist,
he had studied how the human
body uses food and he had little
patience for excuses, especially
those about having no time be-
cause of family obligations.
"Having always put the needs
of others first, it was a wake up
call for me," she said. "He told me
if I didn't care about myself first,
I might not be around to see my
grand kids grow up."
Suddenly she realized that she
was setting a terrible example
for her children, perhaps lead-
ing them down the same road to
poor health she was on. It was
just the motivation she needed
and she became determined to
change.
That was in February, 2010.
Soon she was in the gym five days
a week. Then, she added aerobic
Zumba classes to her routine.
Her weight loss was steady,
but very slow, about one pound
a week.
A trainer at the gym told her
about a weight loss system called
ViSalus and she decided to give
it a try. Combined with her exer-
cise routine, she quickly shed 20


pounds.
As an incentive to continue,
she began posting her weight
loss results on her Facebook page
where she received support from
friends.
In May of that year, encour-
aged by her progress, she decid-
ed to enter the official ViSalus
weight loss challenge.
"The challenge was to lose
30 pounds in 90 days," said Ms.
Morgan. "I was determined to
succeed."
She even signed up for the
gym's boot camp to up the odds
of success. Midway through the
challenge, she had lost another
22 pounds.
By this time, Ms. Morgan had
added a ViSalus executive as one
of her Facebook friends. He was
so impressed with her mid-chal-
lenge photo he selected it as part
of the company's new marketing
CD.
"I didn't even know they had
done it," she said. "I went to a
marketing event for the product
and was shocked when my photo
flashed up on the screen."
Her weight loss continued.
By August, when the challenge
completed, Ms. Morgan sent in


her before and after photos as
well as her personal testimony.
The following November
she received a call from ViSalus
headquarters. They wanted to
know if she planned to attend a
regional event in Atlanta.
She agreed to be there.
A week later she stood before
3,500 people as one of the group
of finalists who had successfully
completed the Body by Vi Chal-
lenge.
Then came the real shock.
"They flashed my huge pre-
weight loss bikini photo when I
weighed 200 pounds on the big
screen. It was so embarrassing,"
she said.
The next thing she knew, she
had been named the Female
Body By Vi Champion.
What happened next is still
the stuff of fantasy to Ms. Mor-
gan. The company sent her on
their 'Transformation Vacation."
Soon the girl from Baker
County found herself in Holly-
wood getting the VIP treatment.
She was pampered at a resort
spa and received a professional
makeover for a celebrity photo
shoot. That was followed by a
tour of Hollywood, a limo ride to
dinner at a four-star restaurant,
a night out at the exclusive Magic
Castle Club. She even got to be in
the background crowd while Ma-
rio Lopez was taping an episode
of Extra!
Participating in the weight
loss challenge changed every-
thing for Ms. Morgan and today,
50 pounds lighter, fitness has be-
come a way of life. She became a
certified Zumba instructor and
frequently leads classes. In Janu-
ary 2011, she earned her group
exercise certification from the
Aerobics and Fitness Association
of America.
Her new goal is to help other
people get control of their weight
and master their health. She says
her heart goes out to the county's
overweight youth and she wants
to do something about it.
"Obesity is such a problem in
this country," she says. "And so


many kids are struggling with it."
For that reason, she has also
gotten involved in helping with
the gym's summer youth fitness
camps.
Losing the weight, getting fit
and regaining her health have
transformed her life. She says
she's happier and her family is


Dr. Garlon Webb


EA MLS�


happier too. The remarkable
thing is that people she knows of-
ten don't know who she is when
they see her now.
"I look like a different person,"
she said. "I went to an annual
family reunion .... and people
didn't recognize me."

5K run raises $1,630 for 0.1. baby
Nearly 100 people participated in the "All for One, Run for All" 5K on June 25, an event to benefit the family of Gage
Spurlock, an infant born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (01) or "brittle bone disease'."The Baker County Health Depart-
ment planned and organized the run, which was inspired by health educator Ashley Gonzales to raise funds for the
Spurlock family's medical expenses as well as increase community awareness about the disease. Funds came from run-
ners' registration fees as well as donations from local businesses. Also donated by local businesses were bottled water,
T-shirts for runners and participation bags filled with items such as first aid kits, hand sanitizer and running towels.

Place them in my Granny's arms
And tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is
easy, I do it every day.
But there's an ache within my
heart
Because I miss her everyday.
We love and miss you, Granny!

Bible school throws wrap party


Scripture

employed

for theme
KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
Calvary Baptist Church in
Macclenny wrapped up its 2011
session of vacation Bible school
June 20-24 with a noisy, activity-
filled carnival.
The light-hearted carnival set-
ting featuring lots of animals re-
flected on the deeper theme of
creation, the subject of the week's
classes.
In the church's fellowship hall,
which overflowed with helium-
filled balloons, lots of games were
taking place. There were prizes,
good things to eat like popcorn
and each child got a brightly col-
ored balloon to take home.
There were apple and egg
tosses, feeding the lion, the dog
and the octopus games. Other
games were treasure chest, duck
pond, dolphin toss, putt-putt golf
and that mainstay of church and
school carnivals - the fishing
booth.
The majority of booths includ-
ed a scriptural display reflecting
its individual theme and also cre-
ation. For example: The egg drop
booth included a live chicken in
a cage and a scripture from Gen-
esis : ... and God created... ev-
ery winged foul after its kind.
The children especially en-
joyed the candy walk - a cake
walk game with candy instead of
cake.
The following Sunday's VBS
confirmation service featured
singing from all age groups of
creation-inspired melodies such
as "If I Were a Butterfly" to "I'm
So Wonderfully Made" to a song
that challenges evolution called,
"I'm No Kin to the Monkey."
Church member Cheryl Rho-
den is closely involved with plan-
ning the theme and curriculum
for Calvary's VBS classes.
She's been doing it for the past
15 years.
Calvary's Bible school pro-
gram grew out of the church's
summer Backyard Bible Clubs
which met at private homes.
Teen members of the church
worked during the week as assis-
tants to the VBS classes and were
monitors of the different booths
and games.
"They got to pick the game
they wanted which meant they
were responsible for decorating
it and running it," said Ms. Rho-
den.

Special service
to honor military
Emmanuel Baptist Church of
Macclenny invites you to a pa-
triotic Sunday service July 3 at
11:oo am in honor of military vet-
erans and those presently serv-
ing. Dr. Charles Shoemaker will
be speaking, and dinner will be
served on church grounds follow-
ing the service. An abbreviated
service will begin at 1:30 pm.


The use of pre-designed, com-
mercially marketed curriculums
have become popular in most
church VBS programs. However,
at Calvary, Ms. Rhoden, a teacher
at Westside Elementary, believes
in creating custom programs,
which she and a team of church
volunteers design and imple-
ment each summer. A main mo-
tivation behind this is keeping
the Biblical message standard.
Commercial VBS curriculums
often draw from many versions

of the Bible," said Ms. Rhoden. At
Calvary, we use the King James
Bible, so in keeping with that,
I've found it easier to write the
lessons and design the activities
myself."
Ms. Rhoden says Calvary's
VBS is a wonderful creative out-
let for her during the summer.
Inspiration for each year's theme
comes from different sources.
Her experience working in an el-
ementary school certainly helps.
So does prayer, which she says
she does a lot of.
"I don't know exactly where
the ideas come from, but I do
pray a lot about it," she said.

"Last year we did a holiday theme
with each day devoted to a differ-
ent holiday such as birthdays,
4th of July and Easter. We even
did a 'Lord coming back' holiday
with a wedding theme.
Ms. Rhoden says she loves
children and loves teaching
about Jesus and that teaching is
actually entertaining, especially
when kids are involved.
"I get so much out of watching
them learn. They certainly teach
you too," she said.

JOEL ADDINGTON I NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
The 2010 mid-term election swept
many Republicans into office, giving
the Grand Ole Party control of the US
House and host of governorships in-
cluding Florida's. National commenta-
tors framed the election as one in which
voters "sent a message" to Washing-
ton about out-of-control spending and
the need for more fiscal responsibil-
ity from our political leaders. Locally,
Republicans performed well too. Now,
more than six months later, The Press is
checking in with the newest members of
the county commission and the school
board, plus the new county manager,
all of whom entered highly-visible posts
late last year, to find out how the mostly
conservative public officials are adjust-
ing to life "on the hot seat."
County Commissioner Jimmy Ander-
son is the second official to be featured
in this ongoing series. Mr. Anderson's
full interview with The Press'Joel Add-
ington is available at www.bakercoun-
typress.com in the video section.

Jimmy Anderson views his elected
office as an extension of the role he's
played for many years - that of a ser-
vant.
During a half-hour interview with The
Press recently, the 46-year-old build-
ing contractor called himself a life-long
servant and spoke about the joy he gets
from helping people, whether it's lend-
ing his expertise on a church mission trip
abroad or trying to get a constituent's
road graded.
"Through life we all look for things
that will make us happy and feel good
about ourselves," he said. "Anytime I be-
lieve I'm helping somebody or helping
the community or the county, it makes
me feel good about myself. As long as
you feel good about what you're doing
and you can live with yourself, it makes
you a better man or woman. If I did ev-
erything for myself, I don't believe I'd
feel that same sense of satisfaction."
Since being elected last November,
Mr. Anderson's learned much about
public office. Some of it has surprised
him.


"We're learning about what we can
and can't do as a commissioner," he said,
referencing leadership training for new
commissioners by the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties. "The things we're lim-
ited to is amazing - who we can talk to
and who we can't. We're restricted in a
lot of ways a normal person, even me,
wouldn't think about."
After more than six months in the
new post, the husband and father to six
children has found his legs, so to speak.
"I think I'm more comfortable now,
with the nerves part of it. I'm more com-
fortable with my decisions now. Are
there things that will come up that will
make me uncomfortable? I'm sure there
are. Anytime you have to make a difficult
decision that affects people, it's going to
be hard. But I think I can do it. As long as
I can live with it myself, I'll be alright."
Like his fellow newly-elected county
commissioner Adam Giddens, Mr. An-
derson pointed to his vote to end county-
subsidized health insurance for retired
employees 65 or older as the hardest
choice he's faced.
"Something had to be changed," he
said. "What I tried to do was be reason-
able and listen to county employees, but
also know the county cannot afford to
continue to keep paying for healthcare.
My goal was to reduce the cost to the
county, so we could get a better budget
and get a fixed number for what we pay
for healthcare and eventually phase it
out completely ... In the future, for my
kids and your kids, not to have that bur-
den to be paying healthcare."
The board stopped the subsidy for
Medicare-eligible retirees, and estab-
lished a cap on the subsidy for those un-
der 65 years old. Mr. Anderson hopes to
end the insurance subsidy to retirees al-
together.
"We just can't afford it," The county
board convenes in regular session twice
monthly, but those aren't the only meet-
ings board members attend. Mr. Ander-
son also serves on regional land planning
and transportation boards.
And those are just the official meet-
ings. There's also meetings about meet-
ings, he said.
"One thing I didn't expect was the
amount of meetings and places you have


to be at certain times, which can be chal-
lenging when you own your own compa-
ny ... What helps me a lot is my brother.
He can pretty well run it when I'm not
around. So that's really beneficial to me,"
explained Mr. Anderson. "If I had a full
time job where I was working for some-
body else, I could see where it would be
very stressing. But, I'm the type of per-
son if I'm into something, I'm in it all

Anytime you have to make
a difficult decision that
affects people, it's going to
be hard. But I think I can do
it. As long as I can live with
myself, I'll be alright.

out.
"Then issues come up in Tallahas-
see like the state hospital. It took some
time and effort, but it was worth every
minute we spent over there, every phone
call and e-mail. There's a lot of things
you do behind the scenes through e-mail
or phones. I've never gotten so many e-
mails in my life as I get now."
A helpful bit of advice for would-
be commissioners: get a smart phone.
At the urging of his wife, he bought an
iPhone.
"It helps me tremendously to keep up
with what's going on and I can take care
of things right then, instead of going till
nine or ten o'clock at night," he said.
Mr. Anderson credits his wife for
keeping things at home in order. Two of
their teens graduated this year, which he
said has been time consuming.
"But I have a good wife. She's under-
standing and very supportive of any-
thing I do. I'm a missionary traveling
a lot, building churches. She sup-
ports that and supports me in this
as well. She takes care of the house
and I don't have to worry about
that. That takes a lot off a man,"
he said. "A lot off."
Without the support of
his family, Jimmy Ander-
son doesn't believe he or


service, family
anyone else could be a successful county
commissioner.
"I don't see how, working a full time
job for somebody else and not having the
support like I do at home," he said. "And
my kids are older so that makes it easier
than with younger kids."
Other than less time for family
and functions at Christian Fellowship
Temple, where Mr. Anderson has wor-
shipped the last three decades, his life
hasn't changed all that much since being
elected.
People have always asked him for tips
about installing windows or doors, now
they're asking about county business,
too.
"At church I can't get there as many
times as I'd like," he said. "I don't miss a
service, don't get me wrong. But there's
a lot of activities that go on that I'd like to
be apart of... But it really hasn't affected
my church, except more people coming
up to me ... I enjoy the people and doing
what I do."
Commissioner Anderson's faith is a
large part of everything he does. He says
it's helped him with difficult de-
cisions a anii elected offi-
cial.
"Phs�icall\ I feel
fine," said MIr. Ander-
son. "Emotionallh I /

Girls basketball team improving

after summer league, coach says


The BCHS Lady Wildcats have
been hitting the court this sum-
mer working on fundamentals
and team unity. Coach Aaron
Summers is very encouraged
with what he has seen so far from
the girls, even though the results
in summer league play has been
spotty.
"We are better now after play-
ing summer league than they we
were at the end of last season,"
said Summers. "They have really
come together personally and on
the court."
The teams competed at the
Florida State College tourna-
ment and the JU tournament.
They didn't win a lot of games,
but learned a lot.
"The girls had lots of fun," said
Summers. "We learned what we
need to work on as a team and as
individuals."
They also learned a lot about
the competition they will face
in their new district this com-
ing season. Summers thinks that


Bishop Kenny will be the team to
beat.
"They are a rock. They are a
machine that turns on at the be-
ginning of the game and keeps
going until the end of the game,"
he said.
Summers is particularly im-
pressed with the progress made
by Chelsea Ruise, Shanice Paige
and Caitlin Smith.
"Chelsea brings everybody up
to the next level," said Summers.
"She is the one who makes the
cuts and thrashes to the basket."
Paige has demonstrated poise
and confidence as the team's
point guard. She is able to slow
the team up and get it in position
to start each play. Caitlin Smith
has made the biggest improve-
ment.
"She is always the first down
the court," said Summers. "She's
a hustle machine." Smith, who
didn't contribute a lot offensive-
ly last season, has upped her of-
fensive game and is the team's


leading scorer in summer league
play.
With summer league over, the
team begins drills on post play,
rebounding and offensive set
plays in the remaining practices.
Summers is convinced that
fans will see a much-improved
Lady Wildcat team this fall.

really going to affect people, I trust Him
to help me. It seems to work out."
With more than three years left in
his term, Mr. Anderson is looking to get
a county transportation center off the
ground by expanding the services offered
today by the Council on Aging. He wants
to keep Northeast Florida State Hospital
publicly run and find new activities for
the county's youth.
"I love the athletic programs we have
here. I support them wholeheartedly,"
he said. "But there's some kids that don't
play athletics and they don't want to do
that. We need to focus on something for
these kids to do, and I'm not quite sure
what it is yet, but something.
"I've heard people say kids will do
what they're going to do anyway, but if
there's no opportunity, if they're going
to do drugs and run, it's for us to step in
to lead and guide them away from that
stuff. I would like to see the whole com-
munity coming together to support our
kids."

Sub shop mural adds local flavor


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
"We designed the store with
the community in mind," said
Jeremy Cain, the owner of Fire-
house Subs, Macelenny's newest
restaurant that opened this past
May.
"It was important to us that
this location's mural represent
and reflect the community as
much as possible."
He's referring to the eye-
catching painting that adorns the
wall in the restaurant's main din-
ing area.
There are over 400 Firehouse
Subs restaurants across the Unit-
ed States and a signature mural
depicting a fire fighting theme is
part of each location's decor. The
murals are painted by the com-
pany's house artist, Joe Puskas,
who collaborates with new res-
taurant owners to personalize the
designs.
Designed specifically with
elements that represent Baker
County and rendered in brilliant
colors, the locally inspired scene
is a visual delight.
Baker County residents will
be familiar with the rural setting,
the animals, vehicles and even
the house of worship depicted in
the mural. A closer inspection re-
veals details which are very per-
sonal to the Cain family.
Mr. Cain, who can be found
working most days behind the
counter with his employees, ex-
plained the significance of the el-
ements in the mural's design af-
ter the lunch rush was over.
"My wife Gabrielle and I want-
ed the restaurant we opened to be
just the right match for our com-
munity and a lot of thought and
research went into our decision,"
he said. "We wanted the mural to
reflect the area and its people as
much as possible."
The mural portrays one of
the fire trucks used by the City
of Macclenny Fire Department.
Adjacent to it is a Baker County
Sheriffs Office patrol car. These
elements are a tribute to the fire-


Jeremy Cain in front of his store's community mural.


fighters and law enforcement
personnel who work daily to pro-
tect the county's residents.
The church in the background
is inspired by the non-denomina-
tional chapel located at Heritage
Park and symbolizes the core role
that spiritual values play in the
community.
The importance of family is
portrayed as well and one of the
mural's most delightful surpris-
es is four of the people depicted
are the Cain's very own chil-
dren, Garrett, Julia, Hannah and
Emma. The couple provided Mr.
Puskas with photos of each child.
Surrounding the scene is a
rural backdrop showing stands
of oak and pine trees and open
fields. A deer is seen peeking
through the underbrush and a
squirrel is making a fast getaway
from a bobcat, which has escaped
from the children. The bobcat
symbolizes the mascot of Baker
County High School's Wildcat
football team.
In the background, trees are
ablaze and two fire fighters are
battling to extinguish them.
If the viewer looks closely,
other small details surface.
The bobcat is wearing a collar
and on the tag are the initials B.
C. for Baker County High School.
Above the patrol car's star em-


blem is "J. Jones," the name of
Mrs. Cain's great, great, grand-
father Joe Jones, a local sheriff.
On the back of one fire fighter's
protective clothing, the owners
name "Cain" appears.
According to Mr. Puskas, who
used to travel to the restaurants
to paint, all murals are now pro-
duced at Firehouse Subs' head-
quarters in Mandarin.
There's actually a mural room
at the headquarters where he
and his assistants paint the mu-
rals on canvas. The completed
canvas is then shipped to its new
home when a restaurant is near
completion. Since 1994, he has
produced hundreds of the com-
pany's murals.

murals painted by Joe Puskas,

meet the artist." Then click on
the link to view images.
Each Firehouse Subs restau-
rant also typically features au-
thentic uniforms, equipment,
photo images and other memo-
rabilia, reflecting the history of
local and regional fire stations.
At the Macclenny location,
historical items from the City
of Macclenny Fire Department,
such as fire extinguishers from
the 196os and the original pipe
pole, are on display throughout

BOB GERARD |I SPORTS
The Baker Bullets swim team
hosted the First Coast champion
McArthur Sailfish of the Ame-
lia Island YMCA at the Baker
County Y pool June 25. It was a
large and competitive event with
McArthur bringing more than
100 swimmers to town, including
a nationally-ranked high school
swimmer.
"It was great for our swim-
mers to see high school star Aly
Kaywork and how well and fast
each stroke can be swam," said
Coach Andy Johnston.
The Bullets represented them-
selves well, winning many races
and consistently placing in the
top three individually. Kyrie
Holman, Braeden Knight, Corey
Campbell, Landon Prevatt, Matt
Voytko, Kim Nelson, Grayson
Wagstaff, Emily Ossmann, Dil-
lon Ray, Danielle Hardin, Ethan
