82nd Year, Vol. 19Winner of 7 state awards for journalism excellence in 2010 75 SEPTEMBER 1, 2011T B C P THURSDAY rrfntbrfbfrfrrBoth public and private defense attorneys have filed mo tions to dismiss pending drug sale and possession cases in Baker County, citing a July 27 ruling by a federal judge in Or lando. The 33 motions are simi lar to hundreds filed throughout Florida after Judge Mary Scriven declared the state law that does not require proof that defendants knew they were in possession of illegal substances is draconian. The judge argues Floridas sale and possession statute passed in 2002 does not pro vide for cases where defendants could be arrested for having drugs they either were unaware they had, or believed them to be legal. Since then, the Third District Court of Appeals in Tallahassee, which rules on cases in Baker County and the Gainesvillebased Eighth Circuit, declared the federal ruling in an Osceola County case does not apply and the current statute stands un less overturned by the US Su preme Court. Judges across the state at the circuit level have likewise dis missed motions on the same basis. A hearing on the 33 Baker County cases will be held in KELLEY LANNIGAN FEATURES email@example.comThis years high school freshmen statewide must complete at least one course online be fore they graduate, but those at Baker County High School are among the few with a computer lab used exclusively to meet the requirement. The new graduation require ment is among a host of new benchmarks being phased in during the coming years to im prove students math and sci ence skills before they reach college. This is something new for Florida, said BCHS princi pal Tom Hill the afternoon of August 25. And whats really er County High School is one of the few schools in the entire state at this time to have a lab dedicated just to online learn ing. The virtual class being taught throughout the day in the lab to some 25 students is global studies, a course offered through Florida Virtual School that explores topics like human rights, the environment, global security, international econom ic systems and more. The new lab was up and run is a step toward making online learning in the countys schools more commonplace. Characteristic of online courses, the instructor is not necessarily physically present. According to Mr. Hill, many parents have voiced concerns about the instructors absence from the classroom. Will this affect the quality of instruction? How will classroom order be maintained? When students hit a snag, what resource do they have for getting help and solv ing the problem, he said. There is a facilitator present, explained Mr. Hill. That person checks attendance, keeps things moving smoothly and makes sure students arent falling behind. The online in structor should be visiting the lab once a week in person to help correct any issues or con cerns the students have. The virtual lab facilitator is Nancy Masterson. Im essentially the cheer leader, she said. Im here for support as much as anything and to help students navigate the program and lessons. The students also help each JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgThree years ago, Olu Oyewole stood before the Baker County Commission asking for help. Tropical Storm Fay had recently flood ed the dirt roads around his home near the northern end of Cow Pen Road, making them impassable. He works for the Florida Depart ment of Juvenile Justice in Tallahassee and feared what could happen if a storm effective ly cut him off from his wife and three children during an emergency. Now, work has begun to pave the roughly 2.7-mile stretch of Cow Pen Road from US 90 north to Tennessee Street. wole said this week. Drainage improvements are nearing com pletion and the new roads base layer is about halfway complete. Robert Fletcher, the coun tys road department director, said 1.5 inches of asphalt should go down within the next three months. They are doing a great job, Mr. Oyewole said. Theyre actually widening the road and digging larger ditches. Even if there is a lot of Given the roads naturally low elevation, the drainage upgrades had to be engineered and permitted. Now our biggest thing is if we can get it in before a major storm and get the grass in and growing before its washed away, said Mr. Fletcher. Eight or 10 inches is what kills us. The little ones dont hurt us. Weve actually had real good weather the last couple of months.

Tommy Joe Robinson, 45, was dead at the scene of the 2:20 accident near the US 90 interchange near Sanderson. He was the ninth person to die on Baker County roads this year. Another passenger, Lius Quiros, 45, of Lake City, was also thrown from the 1995 Ford and was not wearing a seat belt. He had critical injuries, accord ing to Trooper E. R. Williams. The driver of the westbound van, Marc Boucher, 37, of Lake City lost control for an un known reason and it rotated counter clockwise in the grass median before flipping several times, said Trooper Williams. Mr. Boucher was wearing a seat belt and had minor inju ries, as did passenger Jasper Futch, 55, of Live Oak. A fifth passenger, Benja min Markham, 45, of Lulu, had minor injuries. He was not strapped in. The third defendant in a home invasion burglary and kidnap case dating back to the spring of last year received a 20year sentence in circuit court on August 23. Leo Jef ferson III, 18, will get 377 days credit for time he was confined to a juve nile prison and then at county jail since he was certi fied at age 17 to be charged as an adult with kid napping, burglary with battery and grand theft. Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered him to serve a 15-year probation term upon release as part of his no contest plea agree ment, the first year on commu nity control. Mr. Jefferson, of Macclenny, was one of three persons ar rested after a daylight burglary at the home of Jerry Carter on CR 125 north of Glen St. Mary on March 3, 2010 during which several televisions, a play sta tion and other property valued at about $4500 were taken. The defendant and Joshua Plummer, 18, at the time and also from Macclenny, entered the residence via the garage door, using an entry code the latter obtained during an ear lier visit. While inside gathering up property they intended to later sell, the two came upon Kamer on Carter, then 18, sleeping in a bedroom. They barricaded him in a nearby closet. Mr. Plummer entered a plea agreement earlier this year and drew a similar sentence. His girlfriend Laresa Paige of Mac clenny, who was stationed near the residence in a vehicle and picked up the others, is now on a two-year house arrest and will be on probation three years af ter that. Mr. Jefferson has a record as a juvenile, and shortly after the incident was sent off to a facility for young offenders for a pawn shop burglary. In another case, James Tabbot, 24, of Middleburg will be in Drainage ditches being excavated along the shoulder of the soon-to-be paved Cow Pen Road the morning of August 29.

Judge Rosier ordered him to pay $126,051 restitution to the buildings owner. Mr. Tabbot will be on probation four years following release after pleading to burglary and grand theft of $100,000 or more. Two co-defendants are due in court next month. Court records indicate Mr. Tabbot, along with Thomas and Michael Sharp, sold aluminum and copper taken from 11 large roof-top units and six smaller ones at the former clothing man ufacturing plant. They sold the scrap at two locations in west Jacksonville and a third in Lake City. Mr. Tabbots prior criminal record includes arrests for grant theft, drug possession, dealing in stolen property and attempted burglary. The Macclenny Prod ucts heist was the largest in terms of units de stroyed and parts stolen in what has become a common crime in Baker County. Most of the cas es involve single units from unoccupied houses or churches. Sheriffs investigators got a break in the case when a former cell mate of one of the defendants revealed that he boasted of the thefts while in the Duval County jail. no contest to fraud and forgery obtaining prescription drugs and will be on house arrest two years. She also violated probation and was given the 97 days she has al ready been in jail. sentences on a number of other defendants who admitted to vio lating probation: Clarence Wil liams for battery, 30 days in jail; Mark Yarbrough for drug pos session, driving on a suspended license and aggravated fleeing police, a year in jail; Christopher Dennis for grand theft, a year on drug offender probation; Ann tricia Ansley for felony fleeing, a year in jail; Tavaris Donaldson for battery and criminal mischief, 10 months in jail; Gregory Tyrone Lee for grand theft, 11 months in jail; Caleb Linton for sale and possession of drugs, 218 days already served in jail; Adam Ostasz for burglary, 30 days in jail and two years on house ar rest. James TabbotrfnHe added that a bid package compiled for the asphalt con tract is awaiting approval from the states Department of Com munity Affairs, or DCA, which is overseeing a large portion of the $560,000 projects funding. The county secured funding for the new road in late 2009 by combining about $213,000 the county received from CSX railroad in 2001 for the clos ing of two crossings in Olus tee and Sanderson with a onetime, disaster recovery grant of $395,000 from the US Depart ment of Housing and Urban Developments Community Devel opment Block Grant, or CDBG, program in 2010. DCA administers the CDBG program at the state level. The project must be complete by June 2012 to meet the latter grants re quirements. Mr. Oyewole said he and his neighbors are grateful for the paving project, even if it increas es speeding on the 35 mph road way. People drive fast on Cow Pen now, anyway, he said. When they come to the sharp turn to the just worry there will be accidents there unless they take some pre cautions. The Cow Pen Road project and the resurfacing of George Taber Boulevard in Glen St. Mary will cap off a number of grant-funded road improvements around the county this year. Mr. Fletcher said the Wood lawn Road widening and resur lar projects on Mud Lake Road, Lowder Street and US 90. From page 1 From page 1 front of Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier on September 6. where (in Florida), theyre filing motions, observed State Attor ney Bill Cervone in Gainesville. Many of the motions have been lieve the hearing in Baker County will be the first one in the Eighth Circuit. He described the appeals court decision in Tallahassee as a real problem for defense attor neys. The First DCA rejected this for us. Lower federal courts do not have controlling authority over Florida courts, added Mr. Cervone. The local motions to dismiss, as do others throughout the state, argue that Floridas lack of a mens rea (Latin for guilty mind) requirement in drug cases renders the statute unconsti tutional. The Baker County cases are essentially defendants charged with sale and possession of drugs on the basis of controlled buys from confidential informants. Defense attorneys also argue that removal of the mens rea requirement by the 2002 statute violates due process because oth er states must prove defendants knew substances were illegal and sold them as such.

Anybody see the interview Sunday evening with former President Bush (2) on National Geographic Channel ? The subject was 9/11 and he spent an hour reflecting on what that day was like for him. It didnt break a lot of new ground, but the ex-prez has some thoughtful recollections on what must be the most memorable day of his life. He did a good job and not a Teleprompter in sight. Well be bombarded the next week with anniversary tele casts, panels and, yes, newspa per columns on the decade mark of that fateful day. Ive never met anyone over the age of 15 at the time who doesnt remember exactly what they were doing when they heard the news. Dont be lieve I ever will. The Bush interview prompted (not tele prompted) me to rumi nate on what we have learned since September 11, 2001. Many of us believed in the days follow ing the attack that something good would come out of all that death and destruction. The na tion indeed all the nations of the world that value freedom over barbarism would have a unity of purpose that in the end will magnify the best. We didnt do that so much, did we? Were divided more than we were on September 10 of that year. The divisions in our political, cultural and to some extent our religious lives are back with little immediate hope they will recede. Political correctness, that de stroyer of original and critical thinking, has a firmer grip on our institutions. It is stifling thought and limiting our potential as a republic. The obsession with not offending smothers a system where honest dialogue is vital. Ideological poles (right and left) are more pronounced than they were a decade ago. On the left are political leaders who strive to stay in office by appeas ing the have nots, a collective monster they have had a hand in creating. Their man in the White House, the very best they could come up with, is essentially vapor. And he replaced Mr. Bush who, for all his leadership in the wake of Sep tember 11, diminished in stature the next seven years. On the right, leaders spend most of their time and energy placating an increasingly angry constituency that sees the American Dream slipping away. We borrow 40 cents of every dol lar spent in Washington, mostly from the Chinese, famous for their long view of history. They think beyond the next 15 min utes. Half our citizens dont pay taxes to support government in stitutions, a very dangerous sta tistic in a representative repub lic. Theyre simply not involved, and the weak ened economy is swelling their numbers. Theres more, but you get the point. The morning of September 12, 2001, many of us believed Amer ica would use its muscle to eradi cate seventh-century theocracies fomenting a hatred of western culture so intense that it led to the attack. It would be messy, but necessary. That didnt go so well either. Somewhere along the line we got into nation building instead of eradication. Nation building? We have learned something since that day, and its that were not on the right path if the United States of America is to remain the beacon its been for the rest of the world for 200-plus years. That direction is obvious to anyone with an IQ above their belt or dress size. America needs to pull back from pointless for eign commitments and force other nations to fund their own defense, pull way back on equally pointless social spending that is fashioning a nation of zombies, stop spending more than we take in and resolve to maintain a smaller, more lethal military force whose job it is to eradicate those who would do us harm. No nation building; they can clean up the mess they created. And political correctness, the kind of drivel that prompted the mayor of New York City to ban references to the deity in the 9/11 observance and has made mush factories out of our education system please, please lets banish it in favor of just behaving with good manners. That would be a proper legacy of 9/11. Thank goodness that Hur ricane Irene passed us by. We didnt get any rain, any addi tional wind, in fact, we would not have even known a hurricane was out there if it hadnt been for the almost constant television cover age of the weather event. Weather event? Thats what the cable news and even the Weather Channel were calling it. I guess nowadays everything has to be an event whether it is a movie, a car sale, a concert or a hurricane. I feel for the millions of people who werent so lucky. They are battling knee-deep water, wind damage and lack of power. Over 2 million people in the northeast have no power, which might not be fully restored for a week. Naturally, I feel bad for those folks without lights and air con ditioning, but the ones suffering the most from the hurricanes effects are the teenagers and 20somethings without Internet and cell phones. What a hardship. I cant imag ine how they are coping. For some of these poor young people, they are actually have to engage in the first face-toface conversations they have had since they got their first cell phone at age 6. Imagine their tur moil at having to sit at a candlelit dinner table and stare across at their parents and siblings and make conversation. Several New Jersey hospi tals have treated younger teens showing signs of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from having been without WiFi for more than 12 hours. Were not really sure how to deal with them, said Kay For berg, head nurse at Patterson, New Jerseys St. Vincent de Paul Hospital. We sedated the first few but luckily one of our doctors had been stationed in Afghani stan and knew how to deal with young people devoid of Internet service. It was tricky, said Dr. Lar ry Rowton. They were staring at me and their mouths would move but nothing would come out. It was clear that they were trying to converse but didnt re ally know how. Rowton shook his head. They had that deer in the headlights look we used to see on the battle field when a soldier was in severe shock. Dr. Rowton described how he handled the patients and gave some advice to people who might have teens suffering from PTSDWiFi. I sat them down in front of a frame that looked like a screen but had nothing in it. Then I got behind it so it looked like they were seeing me on a computer. They calmed down immediately. I was then able to counsel them and tell them not to be frightened. I told them to think of con versation as similar to a series of Twitter tweets tied together. That seemed to make sense to them and some were able to actually speak to me that way. It helps to let them go through the motions of texting while they talk. It calms them down. The only drawback is that you get a lot of abbreviations like OMG and LOL in their conversations. But, oh well, youve got to crawl before you can walk. Dr. Rowton suggests that par ents of suffering teens can cut screens out of cardboard and each member of the family can hold it in front of their faces. It might help relieve the shock. Captain Martin Hartline of the Pennsylvania Highway Pa trol also warned drivers to watch out for teens wandering the road ways as well as the usual high water and debris. Weve noticed a lot of young people on the side of the road, said Capt. Hartline. They seem heedless of the pouring rain and strong wind. They are just wan dering around with their smart phones held above their heads. I guess they are looking for cell signals. David Burger of the Federal Emergency Management Agency offered a ray of hope. We hope to have cell phone and WiFi back up by the middle of the week. It could have been much, much worse. We could have lost Dish Network and Direct TV and they wouldnt have been able to see the MTV Video Music Awards. That could have been a tragedy. So there you are. Theres al ways something to be thankful for. LETTER TO THE EDITOR ROBERT GERARD Students returned for the second week of the 2011-12 school year this week, but heres a look back at comments from our Facebook faithful about the new school year. We asked August 23, What did your children have to say about their rst day of school? Heres what they had to say ...Joanna Touchton: My middle schooler said lunch was a little con fusing but other than that they all had a great rst day! Brandi Jo Waldo: My cousin is in 9th grade. She got lost and was late for class but she said it was OK. Katie Robinson: My son T.J. loved it. He came home so proud of himself for surviving his rst day of rst grade. As soon as he was o the bus he was telling me that he had made a 5 and that he loves his teacher, Miss Parmer. This morning when I woke him, I asked him, You ready for school today? He said, Yes, rst grade is awesome, like me. I love that kid. Aaron Scott: On the way home, my second-grader said, Dad, Ive got just two words: no homework! Ha! He enjoyed it. Dennie Dee Ledford: My 3rd grader said the only thing she didnt like was only having a 5-minute re cess. My 4th grader never stopped talking about all the great things about her teachers and all the fun things she will get to do. My kids had a great rst day! Jennifer Wilson: My kids were as excited as Christmas morning (hope fully that continues as the year goes on). They all like their teachers and like meeting new friends. The only thing the least bit negative was my middle school-aged son got con fused and went to the wrong lunch. Colleen Scharphorn Harvey: My two high school boys said it was OK. What do you expect from 14 and 15 year old boys! Kindergarten starts tomorrow for my other one, now he is excited! Robert Thompson: On the rst day mine said she didnt know yet if she liked it. The second day she said she does. It must of been that rst day mass confusion.Join The Press at Facebook.com.

Darrell was also an accom plished hobby rocketeer, an avo cation which attracts thousands of participants worldwide. His passion and dedication to this hobby were second to none and led him to create two interna tionally known websites, Rock etry On Line and later, Rocket ry Planet, through which I and thousands of others came to know him. Darrell worked tirelessly mak ing Rocketry Planet the go to website for rocketry enthusiasts of all ages, genders and nationalities. The volume of the work he produced is nothing short of incredible. He continued to do a regular paycheck and in failing health. And he persevered when he became virtually the sole care giver to his seriously ill mother. Even though I never met Dar rell face to face I consider him a true friend and I miss him dearly.Ted Mackliin Van Alstyne, Texasrff rf nf As simple as an e-mail.....If you have any information you think we need to know, send it to:email@example.comT B C P 104 South Fifth St. 904-259-2400
Page 4 T B C P ursday, September 1, 2011A Macclenny couple was named in a criminal complaint for stealing metal ramps from a utility trailer and selling them at a local scrap yard on August 27. Owner Susan Knapp said she returned to her residence on Sunshine Lane near Glen St. Mary and noticed the ramps were missing from a utility trailer in her yard. Ms. Knapp then went to Scrappy Pappys on US 90 and located the ramps valued at $500. Employees there told her that Daniel Kent, 34, and Dawn Kent, 31, brought them to the yard in a mini-van earlier that day and sold them for $20.79 11 cents a pound. Deputy Jason Bryan filed the complaint after unsuccessful attempts to contact the couple. Ms. Kent left her Florida ID card behind at the scrap yard, which also furnished a photograph of her standing at the rear of the van with the ramps still inside. Both items were seized as evidence. The complaint alleges larceny and grand theft, third and second degree felonies. In another theft case, this one involving a golf cart valued at $3500, police arrested Richard Gowdy, 53, of Glen St. Mary during the early morning hours of August 28. Deputy Steven Smith said Mr. Gowdy admitted to taking the cart from Dennis Whelan at his residence on Oak Hill Rd. near Glen because he wanted to sell it for crack cocaine. The cart was located at an address on Deerwood Circle in Macclenny and the owner picked it up. The suspects brother, Eric Miller, 34, of Sanderson was arrested for disorderly conduct after he refused to calm himself at the Deerwood address during a disturbance resulting from the cart theft.JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgAs the Baker County Council on Aging awaits the construction of a state-funded transportation center in Macclenny and eyes additional grant funding to expand more people, its doing so with a new leader. Mary Baxla resigned as the COAs executive director in late July after taking medical leave related to surgery on her hip. Shes now recovering. The councils board of directors, chaired by Barbara Yarbrough, appointed Jackie Wright, the organizations finance manager, to serve as interim director during Ms. Baxlas absence, and then named Ms. Wright acting director during its August 11 meeting. I love working with the seniors so much, she said. I cant think of doing anything else. Ms. Wright, a Bradenton, FL native and Macclenny resident, was hired in April 2010 following two decades at Northeast Florida counting. She moved to the area upon marrying her husband of 25 years, David Wright. Ms. Wright hopes to be considered for the executive director job permanently, but directed questions regarding the potential search for applicants to Ms. Yarbrough. We both gave ourselves until the end of the year to see if they like me and if I can handle the job, said Ms. Wright. COAs board of directors has leadership role long term or when a decision would be made, stated Ms. Yarbrough by e-mail on August 26. Jackie is doing a good job for the COA and has a deep desire to do so, she said. It is still being studied and discussed as to who and when we hire an executive director. A meeting has been scheduled with ElderSource, the regional sonville that oversees funding for senior services at the local level and may assist in the director search should the council desire such help. Our role is making sure the person is qualified, explained Bill Hardy, ElderSources executive director. We dont interfere with the hiring process, but we review their resume ... Its not a derSource looks for persons with a degree or extensive experience while also considering the agencys needs and existing staff. But there are no disqualifying factors so to speak, he said, adding that directors must pass a background check per state law. COA serves as the countys Community Transportation Coordinator under a three-year contract with the Northeast Florida Regional Council, or NEFRC, another Jacksonville-based nonsight role locally. Under the contract, COA is reimbursed for busing seniors, the disabled or low-income residents to jobs, schools, doctors and shopping inside and outside Baker County. Most of the funding comes from Medicaid, the states Transportation Disadvantage Trust Fund and the federal government. The contract, which expires December 31, is up for renewal this year. Three private companies showed interest by submitting submitted a proposal by the August 24 deadline, said Ed Lehman, NEFRCs director of planning and development. I found that very interesting because we got a lot of requests for information, he said. American Logistics and MV Transportation, both headquartered in California, and La Fleur Transportation of Mississippi responded to NEFRCs request for NEFRC board of directors will make a recommendation on the contract at its meeting October 6, most likely to renew the contract with COA rather than re-bid it, Mr. Lehman said. Included with COAs proposal were letters of support from the county, City of Macclenny and NEFRCs recommendation will go to the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged, which will consider it October 28 in Naples, FL. Hopefully, we will be the CTC [Community Transportation Coordinator], said Ms. Yarbrough. We feel we did all our homework right. The COA has been the CTC since 1982 from what I was told, so I think we really have a good chance ... We are in the planning stages to build a new transportation center and I certainly want the COA transportation department to move there and continue to service our county. Our board has put a lot of time and effort into getting a grant to do so. The county, which secured a $2.1 million grant from the Florida Department of Transportation to fund a parking and a bus depot on a 10-acre site behind Winn-Dixie at the southwest corner of Willis Hodges and Buck Starling roads, is waiting for the state agency to deliver a joint participation agreement before the project can begin. Land for the project was recently deeded to the county by COA, which owned the full 10 acres. The COA intends to lease the property for $1 a year to operate its transportation program. Once the joint agreements approved by county commissioners, the county can be reimbursed for project expenses. Bids will be sought for design and engineering services as the C.J. Thompson. He estimated construction could begin in 12 to 18 months. It may be a little faster, said Mr. Thompson. $ $ WE BUY TIMBER $ $ RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS NEEDED FOR A PHARMACEUTICAL RESEARCH STUDY TO TEST AN INVESTIGATIONAL DRUGWE ARE LOOKING FOR HEALTHY MALES AND FEMALES 18 TO 45 YEARS OF AGE (USE OF STUDY APPROVED CONTRACEPTIVES REQUIRED) ENROLLED PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE PAYMENT FOR TIME AND PARTICIPATIONFOR MORE INFORMATION CALL: SEAVIEW JACKSONVILLE, LLC (904) 730-4750 www.countryfcu.com COUNTRY FEDERALCREDIT UNION Is your bank changing names again?rfntbn Switch to Country Federal Credit Union.Receive FREE checking, FREE Visa debit card, FREE checks, FREE I-Pay & Home Banking, FREE E-Statements and worry free checking.Contact a Member Service Representative for the details. r

An employee estimated $1500 damage.MIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF A British couple that moved to Baker County last year could have raised pigs, chickens, cows or goats on their 10 acres near Sanderson and they wouldnt have needed the countys permission because they live in an agricultural zone. But a dog kennel? It might be too noisy and too smelly, a planning advisory panel ruled last week in a split vote denying the couples request to operate a kennel to temporarily house and groom up to 10 dogs for customers. The decision was appealed to the county commission, which Agencys 3-2 decision or overrule it and approve Duncan and Jill Walters application for a special zoning exception, which had been recommended for approval by county planning staff. A final ruling could be rendered by commissioners on September 6 or September 19. Reaching a decision was complicated by a grey area in the countys zoning code that allows kennels in agricultural areas but not in residential subdivisions. The Walters live in West Glen Estates, a subdivision in an agricultural zone. Because of the way the code is written were going to have to make up something here that will work, Ed Preston, county planAccording to a planning staff report the request may be granted by a special zoning exception. The planning staff has concluded that this use was not anticipated within a subdivision, 10-acre subdivision is not a typical subdivision due to the large lot size which allows for generous buffering distances. Planning staff has also formed an opinion that this use will not adversely impact general health and welfare of the area. Despite the planning departments recommendation, board members voted to deny the request on the evening of August 25 after lengthy discussion and hearing testimony from the Walters and opponents who argued that a commercial kennel would hurt surrounding property values and produce undesirable smells, borhood. Im against it in principle, said Floyd DeCurtis of nearby Cewas concerned that approval of the kennel would open the door to other requests for home-based businesses in the area. Jill Walters said there already are numerous unauthorized family-owned businesses operating in the vicinity, including a slaughterhouse. She and her husband said they had planned to erect an air-conditioned steel building, 28 feet long and 14 feet wide, with 10 separate units for dogs that could be cared for while their owners are away. She said the building would resemble a red barn on their property, which is just east of Cow Pen Road on the north side of King Ruise Road, both county-maintained dirt roads. Most of the opposition, the Walters said, had come from residents over a mile away and from owners of vacant property nearby who didnt even live in Baker County. she lives just two lots away from the Walters place and she was opposed to their kennel plans. I moved out there for the peace and quiet, she said, adding that dogs in the proposed kennel would be drawn outside at night by raccoons and other wildlife and they would become a barking nuisance. A kennel business also the county-maintained dirt road, she said. Mr. and Mrs. Walters said they were prepared to do whatever it took to ensure their plans didnt impose a hardship on their neighbors, including placing the kennel far from their property line and planting hedges and trees to form a sound barrier. We value our peace and quiet, too, Mrs. Walters said, noting that the dogs would have free access to an outdoor grassy area where they would be exercised several hours each day and thus be too tired to go outside at night and bark at wildlife. Carmen Thacker, who lives in Jacksonville and owns 30 acres across the street from the Walters residence, urged the board to deny the request because she said shes trying to sell her land and a kennel would kill any chance she Im a widow and I need my money, Mrs. Thacker said. If they put that business there with the dogs nobodys going to buy it because nobody wants the noise. Although the planning department recommended the request Broughton was not swayed in favor of the applicants. I would love to have a kennel but I know my neighbors would probably shoot me, Ms. Broughton said, adding that granting the request could adversely affect other peoples property and rights. Chairman Pat Collier agreed, saying she once had been a neighbor of an unauthorized kennel and was subjected to noisy dogs at all hours of the day and night. Barking dog noise will echo through the woods, Ms. Collier said, siding with Ms. Broughton. Board members Jim Smith er, voted in favor of the request, which had the panel deadlocked 2-2 until alternate board member Philip Zamarron cast the deciding vote. two requests for zoning exceptions to permit County Commissioner Michael Crews and his brother, Raymond Crews, to divide their adjacent parcels, each of which is 16.47 acres, to sell half their acreage on the east side of County Road 229 a few miles south of Interstate 10. The parcels are in an area where lots are required to be at least 7.5 acres. Because subdivision regulations require direct access to a paved road, the only way to accomplish the request is to would be formed by 30-foot-wide ing more than 800 feet from the paved road along the edge of the properties to the new parcels in Since 2002, in an effort to conthe county has only allowed them with the approval of the county the applications and sends them on to the commission with a recommendation. Michael Crews will abstain from voting when his and his brothers request comes before the board.LAND PLANNING AGENCY A new way of NO HASSLE vehicle shopping Local | Convenient | Huge Selection | Wholesale PricingNEW & USED VEHICLESContact Jared Satterwhite 904-327-4095www.AndyCothernAutoSales.com | email@example.com The Baker County Board of Commissioners is seeking applicants Board.

The church will continue its 5:30 Sunday evening service as well as the Tuesday meal and Bible study starting at 5:30 pm through the end of September. St. James has been an important part of the history of this county, said Father Paul, which is why its impor tant that it stay open through the Sesqui centennial celebration. The future of the church building and property, which is owned by the diocese, remains un certain. Due to a lack of supply, the church has also discontinued its weekly bread give away, which has helped about 7000 people in all, said Father Smith.

REAL ESTATE G arlon W ebbwithOn my way to the Wildcat game against Baldwin on Thurs day night I decided to try out a restaurant Id heard some things about, the Tree-Mendous BBQ on US 90 in downtown Baldwin. The Tree-Mendous has a number of locations and the Baldwin restaurant opened up in what used to be Toots Restau rant. It is a small place but the barbecue is good, plentiful and authentic. My family piled in with Fay and Richard Sinclair right before the game and the staff couldnt have been more friendly. We were all in our Wildcat gear and the owner wished us good luck. The restaurant is right across the street from Baldwin High and she offered to let us stay in her parking lot so we could just walk across the street to the game. Dont look for ambience at Tree-Mendous, it is a storefront barbecue joint more concerned with food than dcor. My wife Kelley had the pulled pork, while I went for the ribs. To me, ribs are the real test of a bar becue restaurant. Youve got to be able to do ribs well to qualify as a good one. Kelleys pulled pork was good and came with two sides. She ordered lima beans and collard greens. The greens were fresh, not canned, and very good. The limas were served over rice but were cooked with vinegar, giving them a tartness that we didnt re ally enjoy. My ribs were tasty and didnt really need sauce, a good thing because I didnt care for the sauces. The hot, mild, mustard and sweet sauces were watery, which is not a knock on them since thats a style of sauce, but my preference is for something thicker. I tried the sweet sauce but pre ferred my ribs plain. They were tender, but did not fall off the bone. They were meaty, but with a little too much fat for my taste. They were crusted in a dry rub that was pretty good. The meal came with a choice of chocolate or banana pudding. Ill always go for banana pud ding. It was much more puddingy than what Im used to but was still good. Tree-Mendous BBQ is good food at a good price. I give it 3 out of 4 stars.PHOTO BY KELLEY LA NNIG A NBarometer Bob on TV Glen St. Mary resident Bob Brookens, known to the listeners of his podcast weather show as Barometer Bob, was featured on Jacksonvilles Action News during the stations evening weather update on August 25 as Hurricane Irene began its exit from the Caribbean and headed for the East Coast.

ursday, September 1, 2011 T B C P Page 11 BOB GERARD | SPORTS The Wildcat football team will get on the bus and travel to Carrolton, Georgia for a rare Saturday afternoon game versus Westminster High School. The game will be a good test from the Cats, who come off a 28-0 shellacking of Baldwin in the Kickoff Classic on August 25. The Westminster Wildcats did not have as easy a time in their classic, losing 28-21 to St. Pius Catholic of Atlanta. Despite the loss, it was a good outing for the team. St. Pius came into the game with a No. 5 ranking and Westminster gave them all that they could handle. The meeting of the two Wildcats will be challenging for both teams. The Baker High Wildcats are anxious to see where they match up against a tough team before their September 9 rematch with Trinity Christian. The Westminster Wildcats will not want to open their season with a second straight loss, particularly against a Florida team. Westminster is a big team coming off a 7-4 season and a playoff berth. Their four losses are deceptive, however, coming at the hands of teams with a combined 42-3 record. They also have a number of returning starters. Among them is senior guard Sam Jowers at 6, 260 pounds, who is being courted by Stanford, Duke, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. Then theres center Andrew Freschi and guard Austin Joel, both over 200 pounds. The group brings both size and experience to the front line. The defense is led by Jowers, Matt Tyler and senior Julien Houk, who have the speed to harass quarterbacks. Their top linebacker is Coleman Poje ,who had 49 tackles and two interceptions last season. Westminsters summer workouts and fall practices have been highlighted by a quarterback duel between seniors Danny Cartan and Will Ruggiano and a challenge from impressive sophomore Jake Forte. Cartan won the starting slot and will line up behind center Freschi on Saturday. Parker Tuthill and Shelton Collier are the top running backs. They are first-year starters and the running game might be a little suspect. The Wildcats have a strong kicking game with senior Harrison Butker, one of the top placekickers in the Atlanta area. The game will be a real measuring stick for BCHS. Westminster is a battle-hardened squad that will seek to overpower the smaller Cats. They will have to be on top of their game and avoid some of the penalties that hampered them against Baldwin.

For those fans who cant make the trip, the game will kick off at 3:00 pm and be broadcast by WJXR 92.1. ATTORNEYDavid P.

For their efforts, the BCHS fans were treated to an impressive 28-0 shutout of the Indians in one half of varsity play. The Wildcats did not have to punt the ball as they moved up and down the field at ease against the Indians. Baldwin also collected some yardage, but when it counted the Wildcat defense stiffened and held their hosts scoreless. It was a hot, muggy night, but with Hurricane Irene in the vicinity the only storm that broke in Baldwin was the Wildcat offense. Thomas Sirk gave the Indians a hint of what was to come on the first play when he lofted a 30-yard sideline pass to Kendrick Singleton. Only an excellent defensive play stopped BCHS from strolling into the end zone. Baldwin was plagued by penalties all night and a face mask infraction moved to the ball to the BCHS 30-yard line. From there, Sirk found Singleton streaking down the left sideline and he carried three Baldwin defenders down to the 12-yard line. Three plays later, Falon Lee scored and Jeremy Wannamaker converted the extra point. Wannamaker didnt have a kick returned all night, putting his kickoffs in the back of the end zone. The Indians responded well to the opening score, with quarterback Jordan Mullis engineering a drive utilizing short passes to make up for the fact that the Wildcat defensive line had shut down his running game. Mullis found running back Zabrieon Gunter and BCHS transfer Kelsey Kirksey drove all the way to the Wildcat 8-yard line. But defensive back Malone Hadley leaped high in the end zone to pick off Mullis pass and save the shutout. Falon Lee, who finished the night with 110 yards, cracked a 10-yard run on the first play off the next series but was disappointed to find it nullified by a holding penalty. Sirk got the yardage right back with a strike to Hadley. Lee, who showed patience against the Indians, picked his way to midfield, dodging and weaving past defenders. But on the next play it was sheer speed that left the Indians in his wake as Lee broke through the defensive line and sprinted to the end zone. The PAT was good to give the Wildcats a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Cats struck right back with a nice 30-yard run from Trey Mosley. He knocked off another 10yard run to the Baldwin 30 and then Sirk showed his mobility as he pushed through defenders into the end zone. Mullis continued to move the Indians well with short passes, but they were hampered by penalties. They drove the ball to within 20 yards of the end zone, but after three straight penalties found themselves back in their own territory with the drive shut down. The Cats got the ball back on the 25-yard line and Sirk engineered a 75yard drive to finish the scoring. He hit Singleton with a pass over the middle. Singleton froze the defender with an impressive spin move and ran to the 36. Wannamaker picked his way to midfield but a penalty brought it back to the original line of scrimmage. Sirk then found Hadley over the middle to break into Baldwin territory at the 48 yard line. Lee ran the ball to the 15 and Singleton pushed it across for the score. Thomas Sirk finished the half with 106 yards through the air and another 52 yards rushing. Singleton had a pair of catches for 64 yards and Hadley posted 32 yards receiving. Lee had 110 yards rushing and Wannamaker had 47 yards. Jared Lee led the way defensively with 5.5 tackles while Rickie Tharpe and Roland Gaskins had four tackles each. Jon Kinney had a pair of sacks. The junior varsity squad also shut out the Indians, winning their half of play 20-0. The win is a good tune-up for Saturday afternoons match-up with the Westminster Wildcats in Carrollton, Georgia.
