82nd Year, Vol. 22Winner of 7 state awards for journalism excellence in 2010 75 SEPTEMBER 22, 2011T B C P THURSDAY rrfntbrfbfrfrrKELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES email@example.comFirst Assembly of God youth pastor Todd Annis lost his life in a car accident last week, but according to members of the congregation, the legacy of the work he started in the church and the community has only just begun to grow and expand. Todd is irreplaceable, said pastor Joshua Potts, who worked daily with the youth minister. Its like theres this big, quiet hole now where Todd used to be and that quiet is deafening. He cared about others so much more than himself. His goal was to leave this world a better place than he found it. Tyler Norton, 18, was Mr. Annis youth assistant at the church. He spoke with Channel 4 reporters about Mr. Annis last Saturday. He trained us to the point we could do the churchs work on our own, he told them. Now its time for us to make him proud. Mr. Annis, 32, and his wife Lauren lived in Jacksonville and were returning home Saturday after watching a football game with church youth in Macclenny. Their vehicle was struck by another car near I-10 and Chaffee Road shortly after 8 pm. The driver of the other vehicle was not hurt. Mrs. Annis sustained minor injuries. The Sunday service at the church was devoted to Mr. Annis memory. A video of the congregation and of Pastor Potts message was later sent to uplift and support Mrs. Annis and her family. Our love is with you, he told them. Our support is with you. And the Holy spirit is there giving you comfort and peace. This is a somber time, but also a time of hope because we know exactly where Todd is and what he lived for. The pastor also spoke of embracing the profound peace that comes from God through his son, even in times of deepest tragedy. Its easy to have peace when everything is going said Mr. Potts. Its not so easy when things go terribly wrong, but thats when its most important to seek refuge in that peace. After all, it was Jesus who calmed the storm. According to Mr. Potts, who spoke with The Press on Monday, Mr. Annis was special because he lived life to the fullest. cel and to impact the lives of others, particularly the JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org get a salary bump next month due to the countys population growth in 2010, but only one ofThe Press this week, County Commissioner Michael Crews, plans to take the money. The extra pay would bring his annual salary to $29,813. The extra $373 a year, in Mr. Crews view, would be better spent in his hands than if it were to remain in county coffers. I intend to keep it, said commissioner. I spend a lot of my money on gas and going to different things as a commissioner. The $150 we do get [for transportation] is really an And I give a lot of money. People call and ask whether its making a car payment or buying groceries or helping with the light bill. I do that. I plan on continuing to do that. Its a little bit of money, and its still ultimately going back. No, not every dime of my salary goes to helping people, but youd be surprised how many people come to you for help. And then theres re-election in 2012. Those are expensive. The commissioner said he intends to seek re-election and his last run in 2008 cost more than $7000. And to be quite honest, as a commissioner, I think I deserve it. I work hard for my constituents. I would not have voted for a salary increase if it was within JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR email@example.comThe Baker County Sheriffs Office, with assistance from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, served a search warrant at Dr. Charles Scarboroughs medical clinic at 31 S. 5th St. in Macclenny the morning of September 16, hauling away nearly a dozen computers and other paper records. Sheriff Joey Dobson said arrests resulting from the Friday morning raid would be forthcoming as the investigation progresses. Dr. Scarborough was on a trip to Georgia when the search and seizure involving a handful of state investigators and a few took place. The office doesnt see patients on Fridays, but staffers usually there were not present either, said Sheriff Dobson. Some employees arrived later that morning, hoping to intercept paychecks that never arrived. The state recently launched its Prescription Drug Monitoring Program database that requires doctors and pharmacies dispensing certain drugs like OxyContin, Percocet, Xanax and other highly-abused medicines to report information about patients, their prescriptions and dosages to the database at least every seven days. Doctors, pharmacies and law enforcement may also request such information from the state to combat so-called doctor shopping and the illegal diversion of prescription pills to the black market by fraudulent means. Sheriff Dobson said hes sure the database will prove useful to law enforcement investigating the clinic, its employees and Dr. Scarborough, but the search last week was prompted by people sources [see accompanying article to the right on this page]. The database will be used more now that we have this information, he said. Dr. Scarborough is notable at his downtown clinic, longwaiting times and out-of-state visitors. There are people out there at 5 oclock in the morning. The other night he was still seeing patients at 2 am, said neighboring resident Jeremy Beasley, who has lived on College Street for the last two years. Ive been tolerating the loitering, loud music and even far too long, he said. A practice like this should not be legally allowed to operate as it does.

Ms. Alford, investigators have been told by first-hand witnesses, sold prescriptions for such widely abused drugs as Oxycodone and Xanax, sometimes through the rear door of the office at South 5th and Railroad Ave. A warrant was issued for her arrest Tuesday afternoon following interviews with others arrested before last Fridays raid on Dr. Scarboroughs office [see article at left] during which office computers and other records were seized by agents of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

He was constantly in learning mode to improve and strive for excellence in leadership and he turned often to the writings of Christian author and speaker John Maxwell for inspiration. His drive was infectious. Even when he didnt have a plan, he had a plan. Hed say I dont know exactly what Im going to do but I know what Im not going to do. Im not going to settle or just maintain. Im going to push forward and create momentum. Pastor Potts also recognized Mr. Annis remark able rapport with the 30-plus youth he worked with at First Assembly. He was genuine what you saw was what you got. His compassion was real and the youth saw and felt this, he said. Several years ago, Mr. Annis began working at First Assembly part time while still at his job at the Duval County Courthouse. In April 2010, he became the churchs full time youth pastor and shortly after, sistant, a role his church calls the armor bearer. Someone in the armor bearer position is respon sible for doing whatever it takes to make the youth pastors work run easy and smooth. He would be the go to guy helping set up and break down after events, chauffeuring youth with no transportation to and from church, running sound for the Phase II ministry music concerts at the high school lend ing a hand to whatever was needed. Todd Annis would have a profound effect on Ty lers life and the life of the church. So much so that upon hearing of his death, the youth group immediately decided it did not want another leader. Mr. Annis cannot be replaced and we dont want another youth pastor, said Tyler Norton. We have decided to carry on the programs he started by ourselves and with Pastor Potts blessing. Mr. An nis prepared us to do the work and we owe it to his memory. For Tyler, the loss is very personal. A photo of him with Mr. Annis is on the dashboard of his car. It will always be there, he vows. The young man spent a lot of time in the Annis helping him get his car and obtain entrance into He admires his late youth pastor for many rea sons. Mr. Annis was able to establish such a strong spiritual presence at the high school through the Phase II concert program he helped develop, his work with the Christian Fellowship Club and the Starbucks coffee outreach for the high schools par ents and faculty, said Tyler. He did things like take us to the Dominican Re public on a youth mission and he shared his love and talent for music. He was an awesome guitar player. cause it would take volumes to express it. His loss is so hard, but the Lord is getting us through this, the Lord and friends, of course, he said. One thing Tyler believes beyond a shadow of a doubt is that Mr. Annis will always watch over him. I know when the day comes that Im out there hose, he said. my authority, he said. I would never do that. But this raise is coming from Tallahassee in accordance with state statutes that adjust the sal aries of county commissioners, school board members and conon changes in population. Baker Countys population grew to more than 27,000 resi dents last year, which boosted salaries by as much as $392 in most cases. But thanks to legislation can now turn the money down. As of October 1, School Su perintendent Sherrie Raulerson, Sheriff Joey Dobson, Clerk of Courts Al Fraser, Tax Collector Gene Harvey and Property Ap praiser Tim Sweat will be eligible for an additional $392 in com recently released by the states graphic Research. pervisor of Elections Nita Craw ford and county commissioners Jimmy Anderson, Mark Hartley, Adam Giddens, Michael Crews and Gordon Crews could receive another $373 in annual pay. The maximum pay for school board members was increased by $104. Aside from Michael Crews, cials said they will not accept the raises, most citing the county commissions decision to slash 3 percent raises for all county em ployees to help balance the 201112 budget. Honestly, I plan to return my raise, said County Commis sioner Gordon Crews, because our employees didnt get a raise. I just think its the right thing to do. The commissioner also ex pressed his disappointment that county workers werent given any additional compensation this year. He noted that the raise hes eligible for, about $14 more a pay period, could help offset employee health insurance con tributions. Its not much, but its some thing, said Gordon Crews. Commissioner Hartley re called past salary adjustments, some as little as $2 or $3 more. One time they gave it to us and it was like $100 and we just wrote a check back, he said. Thats what Id like to do. I dont care to have it. If other employees cant have a raise, I wouldnt feel right about taking it. Clerk of Courts Al Fraser said his salary hasnt changed in four years, adding, I wouldnt take a dime more if my life depended on it. The potential repercussions of accepting a raise in the midst of a budget crunch is not lost on Mi chael Crews. He said he under stands that his critics will likely use it against him. But if anybody did that, Id say they were shallow in their thought process, he said. And if they let this $300 affect their decision about me, instead of looking at my job performance, theyll be voting for me for the wrong reasons anyway ... I want them to vote for me because they believe Im the best candidate and I did what I said I would do when I ran for election.

Two are male and one female. Deputy Daryl Mobley said he responded to the call shortly af ter 11 and first encountered one of the males, age 15, who cursed and verbally resisted when told to step back while the officer spoke to Dustin Martin, 18, of Macclenny, who agreed to leave the premises. About the same time, a sec ond male, age 17, began arguing with officers and acted as if he intended to physically challenge the deputy when he threatened arrest. The third arrestee, age 16, then began cursing and scream ing at officers when they hand cuffed the other two. She was ar rested for disorderly conduct, as was the 15-year-old. He was also charged with re sisting arrest without violence, as was the 17-year-old, who faces an additional charge of disorderly intoxication. In other arrests, Connie Key, 26, of Jacksonville was charged with driving on a license with four prior suspensions after her 2004 Cadillac was stopped at CR 127 and US 90 in Sanderson the morning of September 13. Deputy Chris Walker said he initiated the stop after noting an expired license tag. A further check of the computer data base turned up the license suspen sions. The officer noted Ms. Key was last charged with the drivers li cense violation on July 15.

Most of the $319,600 budget is allocated to reserves with just $37,850 in anticipated spending for operating expenses like advertising, insurance, accounting and administrative services from Chamber of Commerce director Darryl Register. The lions share of the revenue in the 2011-12 fiscal year that begins October 1 is expected to come from timber sale proceeds and cash from the sale of property owned by the commission. The audit report prepared by Lyons & Lyons of Macclenny notes that the commission made no payments on a $40,000 operating loan from the Chamber of Commerce in 2009, but the sales are expected to cover repayment in the coming year.

Its been a busy week for us at The Press with state investiga known far and wide as the spot to obtain prescrip tion pills pretty painlessly, the fast approach ing Sesquicen tennial party and county fair, and the death of a youth pas tor whose good works here will not be soon forgotten, all on top of the more routine happenings that we cover week in and week out. What I hope, for a number of reasons, doesnt get lost in this weeks edition is the article about the potential salary increase for a convoluted state formula with the underlying premise that those elected deserve more mon ey if they represent more people. First, its worth noting that county commissioners, consti and the school districts lead ers, all up for the raises, dont sign their own paychecks, so to speak, as its often said that politicians line their pockets any chance they get. Rather, the sala ry changes originated from up on high in Tallahassee, which also fending their salary levels. tuate from year to year, moving a few dollars one way or the other with population shifts, often not garnering much attention. But this year the move up ward, based on the county breaking the 27,000 population threshold in 2010, involved a few hundred dollars more, sparking the interest of an anonymous caller to our office wondering why the county could afford rais jobs of two laid off administrative employees. Its often because of such calls that we become aware of stories we otherwise may have missed, or arrive at too late for it to be relevant. Would so many of the about whether they intended to accept or reject the extra com pensation, have chosen the latter had The Press not come calling? As much as were a watchdog of government, and to a lesser ex tent private business, its invaluable to have citizens and readers to help point us in the right direc tion and shine a light on matters that affect the public at large. Id like to thank that caller and en courage those of like mind to as sist in our efforts to hold your In times gone by, when un employment was lower and GDP higher, politicians may have been more apt to accept a salary increase, reasoning that, yes, it people and the additional com Now, such notions have been crushed to dust. These days, peo ple are wondering why we pay politicians at all, particularly at the federal level when so many turn into highly-paid lobbyists. All that said, it was incred ibly refreshing to hear one local commissioner sound more like a pragmatist, throwing political conventions aside and saying, for the record, he intends to keep the extra dough. Since being elected in 2008, Commissioner Michael Crews, a conservative Republican, has proved to be a rather outspoken representative, rarely shying away from controversial issues. stand where the commissioner is coming from because hell almost always tell you, in very blunt lan guage. Last week was no exception. I must admit I was a surprised by his decision, though look ing back now after listening to his reasoning, it seems pretty in tune with history. This is a com missioner who loaned an elderly resident a handgun so she could feel more secure. simply. He often gives money to people he believes need it, men tioning specifically groceries, light bills and car payments. I hate telling people theres nothing I can do, Michael Crews said. Ive had to tell some no, and I hate to tell them that, but the number of people need ing and asking for help has in creased. You may not agree with his decision to accept the salary in crease, but the commissioners candor and courage to go against the prevailing political winds of the day are both worthy of re spect. So, Bob, why should I care about Baker County being 150 years old? Im not really much of a history buff. As Jim Mc Gauley pointed out in his col umn last week, there really hasnt been a lot of buzz around town about the upcoming Sesquicentennial celebration on Saturday. Jim listed a number of reasons for that including the fact that we are a notoriously last minute bunch here in BC. Well the last minute is here and I hope to see you down town and at the various other venues on Saturday. Theres going to be a little bit of every thing at the celebration music, crafts, parades, re-enactors, a lot of entertainment. As you probably know, Ive been rehearsing Baker County, Fla. 1861-1961, the community theatre and high school drama departments dramatization of the county history. Well have an information booth on the pro duction downtown on Saturday, so come by and visit. Unfortunately, because of renovations in our auditorium, our full show wont be performed until January, but well be per forming a short scene from the play sometime between 1-2 pm on Saturday on the main stage. Whats shocked me as I put the show together is how little people know about the countys history. If you ask folks about some of the interesting things that have happened over the past 150 years, most of them will only be able to mention the Battle of Olustee and moonshining. Until I started this project, I was probably as in the dark about Baker County history as most of you. But, as Ive been research ing the play, Ive been surprised by what a rich history we actually have. Over the last few months Ive been relating some of the high points stories from Olustee; the Yellow Fever Epidemic that killed well over half the popula tion; how Baker County influ enced a presidential election and stories about Capt. CB McClen ny. Ive only touched on a few of the great stories from and about the countys interesting history. I picked only those that can be dramatized, but there are plenty of others that you can read about on the Baker County Histori cal Societys web page. Theres Enoch Roberts, known as The Devil Roberts, who was reportedly the meanest man in Baker County. Around the turn of the centu ry, when he was a boy of 14 he re portedly beat his mother to death with a stick for pouring syrup on his dog. Killing your mama with a stick is pretty mean in anyones book. Later in life he murdered an assassin sent to do him in. He was said to have also murdered his brother (now thats a dysfunctional family. They could be a weekly series on the CW net work). Finally, old Enoch met his end in a gunfight on streets of Lake Butler. One of the more exciting and baffling stories is about the Bax ter Rebellion, which Gene Barber chronicled in a five-part series in The Press during the late 70s. Heres the gist of it. Once a year, most of the residents of Baxter would take an excursion by train to St. Augustine for the day. They would swim in the ocean, see the sights and enjoy the attractions. During the 1905 excursion, a fellow named Dun can, the owner of a turpentine plant, decided to take his black workers with him. Some of the locals who were already drunk on what they called good time insurance juice took exception to that and on the trip home got into a fight. It was more than a brawl and by the time the train pulled in to Baxter anywhere from 12 to 15 people were dead and the train car was a river of blood. The fighting continued for the rest of the day and into the night. The only deputy in that part of the county, Rufe Thrift, was shot dead by a mob as he was trying to keep out of Duncans house. When they killed the deputy, they realized they had gone too far (I guess the other dozen dead didnt really matter) and hightailed it across the border into Georgia. Sheriff UC Herndon knew it had gone beyond his con trol and called out the state mi litia. They marched into Georgia and arrested everyone they could find. But when the trial took place in Folkston, family members of the defendants surrounded the Charlton County Courthouse car rying rifles and shotguns and the intimidated jury found everyone on trial not guilty. There are plenty of other stories just as interesting and exciting as the ones Ive been chronicling. But very few of our residents really know about them. I wish a unit on Baker County history could be taught in the school system before we lose these stories to the dust of the past. Come on out to the Sesquicen tennial celebrations on Saturday. You wont regret it. Watch histo ry come alive.

The link posted to our Facebook page prompted a bevy of reactions. Heres what they had to say ...Scott Imkindofabigdeal Mathis: Everyone knew that was coming. Wayne Stewart: Its about time. Is there one cop in Baker County that didnt all ready know, ouch. Judy Wiest Parks: It is about time! How long does it take? Duh! Kristin Simmons: Its about time! Theyve got to start somewhere! Trey Sinclair: I wonder what all the addicts will resort to now that their main supply is cut off. More breakins? Laura Wright Cline: Good! Final ly! Eva Mathis: They wont shut him down this time either, its not the rst time hes been investigated. Wayne Stewart: The drug war is a waist of tax dollars. Give up please, its not working. Tammy Crawford McFarland: If no one was there ... who got served? Sounds like a leak got out to me. Robert Thompson: Dumb cops? Or was the staff alerted? Why did they waste time showing up there? Why didnt they go when they know somebody is there to open the door? How do they know hes in Georgia? Makes no sense. Showboating! Shirley-Winston Sapp: Dr. Charlie has been our physician for a very long time. He is a ne man and a good doctor. The patient has to take some responsibility in their health care. Ashley Greer Smith: A patient needs to take responsibility, yes. But a doctor needs to know when patients are not responsible and are abusing the drugs he is prescribing. Which is obviously happening there. Its not normal to have crowds out side of a doctors oce. Debbie Norman Mobley: I think they should shut him down! I do beleive he has helped people but that time has pasted. To many pill heads hanging around all of Baker county! Its sad how peoples lives get ripped apart all for a pill! Candy Godbold: This man is a doctor, not the police. He is bound by condentiality laws not to open his mouth about your medical records, drug addictions or sexually transmit ted illnesses. If youve suspected him of being some type of drug dealer then why havent you as a citizen stepped up? You cant throw a rock in Macclenny without hitting two people who are hooked on prescrip tion pills and three that sell them. And that is Dr. Scarboroughs fault?!? No, its the people who sell and abuse them that carry the blame. God for bid we blame the addicts. Aaron Scott: Dr. Scarborough has not been my doctor in years, but I can tell you that he was exceptional in the time and care he takes with each patient. Why are people stand ing outside late in the evening? Be cause the wait for Dr. Scarborough is so long! Ive booked the rst appoint ment of the day and still not seen him for 90 minutes (he would go to the nursing home rst). He spends time with his patients.Join The Press at Facebook.com.

Page 6 T B C P ursday, September 22, 2011 MIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF Adopting a new $27.4 million budget, which was balanced with a record $2.2 million from dwindling reserves instead of deeper spending cuts, took the Baker County Commission only a minute or two on the evening of September 19. But rejecting a couples business plan for a dog kennel in a rural neighborhood near Glen St. Mary took over an hour. Commissioners spent numerous hours in four lengthy workshop sessions this summer producing a 14 percent lower budget after making $4.6 million in spending cuts prior to this weeks get, which drew no debate and only one brief comment from a member of the audience. This is the largest amount ever taken out of reserves for the budget, said Sharon Padgett, a frequent critic of county spending habits. I wanted more cuts. I hate to see us taking out that much money. Commissioners said they, too, didnt like having to dip so deeply into the rainy day fund, which received a $1.7 million boost from reserves last year, and hoped they wouldnt have to do it again next year. I was hopeful the budget could have been done in a different way, said Commission Chairman Michael Crews. Unfortunately, that was not to be. Hopefully, we wont be in such a precarious position next year. The budget is funded in part by the same property tax, or millage, rate as last years rate of $7.1459 per $1,000 of taxable property value. Because of declining property values countywide, however, most homeowners will pay lower which begins October 1. After the budget hearing the board opened a public hearing to consider three zoning issues, can and Jill Walters following the Land Planning Agencys rejection of their plans to open a dog kennel and grooming business on 10 acres in West Glen Estates, a subdivision in an agricultural zone between Glen St. Mary and Sanderson. The advisory panel voted 3-2 last month to deny the couples application for a special zoning exception that would have allowed a 10-unit kennel at their 10-acre residence on King Ruise Road just east of Cow Pen Road. Following testimony from about a dozen people, some for and some against, the commission voted 3-1 to uphold the LPAs decision based on the contention that a kennel/grooming business would be inappropriate for a residential area, even though its zoned for agricultural use and planning department staff had recommended approval. I have a concern with businesses being with homes, said Commissioner Mark Hartley. Mr. and Mrs. Walters, however, pointed out that the countys zoning code already allows non-residential uses in the area, including sawmills, hog farms, slaughterhouses and labor camps. They said their plans for a kennel comprised of ten spacious air-conditioned suites would be far more desirable than those uses. Ed Preston, county planning director, said businesses are permitted in the area as long as they are related to agriculture and that a commercial dog kennel could be approved by special zoning exception. This is not residentiallyzoned property, but it is mostly residentially-used property, Mr. Preston said in reference to West Glen Estates, later adding: This is a very strange subdivision. It is called a subdivision, but it was never platted. Commissioner Jimmy Anderson recommended denying the Walters appeal after he pointed out that those who spoke in favor of the proposed kennel dont live near West Glen Estates, while those who spoke in opposition do. Mr. Hartley seconded the motion and Commissioner Gordon Crews agreed. A previous motion by Commissioner Adam Giddens to approve the request, with certain conditions, died for lack of support. He said he couldnt see denying the request for a small dog kennel when Mr. and Mrs. Walters could operate a hog farm without needing anyones consent. In addition to the anti-business stance, opponents said they were concerned about constant barking, odors and additional duce. Mr. and Mrs. Walters had argued that their operation of a small boutique and boarding facility would be clean, about 1,000 feet from the nearest neighbor, and would not be a nuisance. Supporters argued that Baker County needs a new boarding facility for dogs, including Louise Elliott who said dogs in the type of facility envisioned by Mr. and Mrs. Walters would not be as noisy as hunting dogs that bark day and night totally unregulated near her home on State Road 121. In the end, advocates were outnumbered by opponents who agreed that a new boarding facility for dogs would be an asset to the county. Just not in their neighborhood. The only reason were opposed is because it (the proposed kennel) is a business, said Sandy Hines, who lives with her family on nearby Cow Pen Road. We petitioned about 25 homeowners within a one-mile radius and every single person we spoke to signed the petition. They do not want businesses in our neighborhood. In two other cases commissioners approved: tions from Commissioner Michael Crews (who abstained from voting) and his brother Raymond Crews to divide their adjacent 16.4-acre parcels so they could sell half their acreage on the east side of County Road 229. County planners had recommended approval. The parcels are in an area where lots are required to be at least 7.5 acres in size. Because subdivision regulations require direct access to a paved road, the only way to accomplish the relots, which will be formed by pole) extending more than 800 feet from the paved road along the edge of the properties to the To control the proliferation with the approval of the county commission. The LPA reviews the applications and sends them on to the commission with a recommendation.

Thats the question at the cen the University of South Florida in which Baker, Bradford and Union county ninth graders are serving as the control groups this year. The Florida Department of Health is giving the Baker Coun ty Health Department about $67,000 annually to teach an abstinence-based sex education curriculum known as TOP (Teen Outreach Program) at the high school through the course of the study. The curriculum, however, will not be presented fully this year, and perhaps next year, in the control group counties, so as to gauge the effectiveness of TOPS at preventing teen pregnancy. Instead of TOP, health depart ments health educators will de liver an alcohol and drug abuse prevention program and conduct before and after surveys with stu dents, said the departments top administrator Kerry Dunlavey. It teaches lots and lots of skills, she said of the substitute curriculum. Local seventh and eighth graders will continue to receive an abstinence-based sex ed program from health department educators as they have for years. The school board approved the TOP curriculum last May, but the department only found out a few weeks ago that Baker County would be in the studys control group this year. Health educator Lauren could remain in the control for another year, but the full TOP curriculum would be taught in I think it will be great for our county to see if this curriculum will work to lower the teen preg While the teen birth rate de females age 15 to 19 dropped in Baker County during the lat ter part of the last decade, it re mained 46 percent higher than the statewide rate in 2009, ac cording to data from the state. The number of births to teens is also on the rise, with 53 in 2009 and 63 in 2010. The university study has been one year in the making. It was last September that the state was awarded some $3.5 million from the US Depart ment of Health and Human Serto replicate programs shown to lower the rate of teen pregnancy among participants, about $2.5 million of which is funding the research effort by USFs College of Public Health. The project will involve ninth graders in almost 100 high schools in 26 non-metropolitan Florida counties. TOP spends less than 15 per cent of its curriculum on sexual ity, including a brief introduction to pregnancy and sexually trans mitted diseases, focusing more on developing a positive selfimage, life-management skills and setting achievable goals, the college reports. The theory behind TOP is that encouraging teens to address problems in their com munities and help others builds a sense of self-worth enhances problem-solving and leadership skills which may lead to bet ter decision-making overall and less risky behavior, reads an Oc tober, 2010 press release about the grant from the college. Data from a previous national, but limited, evaluation indicates the program has resulted in statis teen pregnancy and school fail ure. But, Eric Buhi, PhD, USFs principal investigator for the study, said its not clear whether TOP reduces teen pregnancy and school absenteeism down the road. project well have the rigorous, longitudinal data to be able to draw conclusions about the longterm impact of TOP, he said. USF researchers will assess the effects of TOP on partici pants, compared to demographi cally similar nonparticipants, as much as three years after the programs initial implementa tion. They will measure such out comes as rates of teen pregnan cy, sexually transmitted diseases, school suspensions, failures and drop outs. The study comes on the heels of the Florida Legislature turn ing away about $2.8 million an nually under the federal Afford able Care Act for comprehensive sex education that includes in formation about abstinence and the use of contraception to avoid pregnancy and STDs, in favor of less money for abstinence-only programs.

The ruling, issued September 15, thus allows 41 pending cases in Baker County to go forward. Circuit courts across Florida were hit with a barrage of motions to al low drug offenders off the hook after a federal judge in Orlando opined that the statute in question was unconstitutional on its face because it eliminates a centuries-old common law tenet of mens rea, or knowledge of wrongdoing. Without that element, the federal judge held, someone could be prosecuted for possessing drugs even if they were unaware they had them, or believed them to be legal substances. During a September 6 hearing in Baker County circuit court, dur ing which many of the 41 defendants were present, public and private defense attorneys argued mens rea is a foundation of American juris prudence. The state goes too far, stated Julie Johnson, an assistant public de fender. It gives the state the presumption that they [defendants] knew it [was illegal drugs]. It lumps in people who did not know it. Ralph Yazdiya, division chief for the state attorneys office in Baker County, countered that the 2002 statute has been upheld by state ap peals courts and no Florida courts are bound by the opinions of federal courts, save those of the US Supreme Court. Mr. Yazdiya echoed the crux of arguments put forth by prosecutors across Florida since the July ruling. Judge Rosier during that hearing, perhaps tipping her hand as to her ruling last week, confessed to the assembly she was having trouble making the leap from unlawful to strict liability, referring to what is required of the state to successfully prosecute drug cases. The cases affected are those against: Gregory Beck, Kayla Blackburn, Jeffery Burnsed, Jessica Cannon, Scott Caro, Amanda Carter, Sierra Church, Elizabeth Davis, Oscar Dyer, Jessica Floyd, Jimmie Lee Har rell, Timothy Harrison, Joseph Hollings, George Jackson, Sherterria Jackson, Joannie Johnson, Anthony Lombardi, Cory Lord, Derrickal Major, Gary Markham, Leon Paige, Duwayne Peacock, Donald Pette way, Gerald Hodges, Cornelius Hodges, Kathleen Schell, Clinton Scott, Chantrell Seels, Hope Simmons, Laura Sparkman, Edward Stewart, Mark Stoddard, Patrick Stoutamire, Nathaniel Strachan, Adam Swish er, James Thompson, Sandra Thompson, Charles Unartel, Clayton Whitehead, Pamela Thomas and Misty Lee. rfrr
Page 8 T B C P ursday, September 22, 2011The sheriffs department says an investigation is ongoing into the stabbing of a Glen St. Mary man in front of a residence on CR 125 South in the early morning hours of September 18. Tyler Payne, 25, was taken to Shands Jacksonville after initial treatment at Fraser Hospital for a stab wound to the chest. He was driven to Fraser by private vehicle following an altercation at the residence of Allen Pippins about 3 am after the victim and others returned there from the Country Club Lounge. Deputy Daryl Mobley early this week said Justin Hanby, 31, of Jacksonville was due to be interviewed after he was named by the victim as the person who stabbed him with a pocket knife. Mr. Hanby, who spoke by phone with police later that morning, said Mr. Payne struck him in the head during an argument that began about a fight early at the lounge that involved the victim and a third party. Mr. Hanby, who was with his wife at the Pippins residence, told Deputy Jerrod Satterwhite he came away from the fight with a laceration to his arm that required a visit to a Jacksonville emergency room. Mr. Hanby could be charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. In a second incident, a Jacksonville woman was named in a criminal complaint for allegedly swinging a shovel at Larry Mercer, 37, outside his residence on Clarence Dobbs Rd. the afternoon of September 13. Mr. Mercer told Deputy Matt Yarborough that Mary Kilpatrick, 46, arrived at the address to collect property from his father, who was not at home. When asked to leave, she grabbed a sharp pointed shovel and swung it at Mr. Mercer before throwing it to the ground, where the shovel struck him in the shin. Ms. Kilpatrick then drove off with an unidentified male.JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgThe mom-and-pop telephone company that began here with a single phone in a grocery store some 100 years ago is now facing ever increasing competition from mobile communications. But instead of trying to compete with the likes of Verizon and Sprint, Macclenny-based NEFCOM has doubled down on its strength local land lines that carry information to and from its service area via the Internet. The rural telephone company, founded as Macclenny Telephone Company shortly before World War I and later incorporated as Northeast Florida Telephone Company and then NEFCOM, serves all of Baker County with the exception of Olustee. Its spent the last few years running fiber-optic lines throughout its nearly 500-square-mile service area to offer all of its customers access to broadband speed Internet service. NEFCOM also linked its lobroadband hub in Jacksonville in 2009 through a $600,000 annual lease agreement with Dedicated Fiber Systems of Jacksonville, from Lane Avenue to the county line. Weve gone from where the phone company was a monopoly when you couldnt go to the store and buy a phone, you had to get it from the phone company to now we dont even sell phones anymore, said NEFCOMs Genbegan with the company in 1979, climbing poles and putting service in homes. He soon began working with business phone systems and later moved on to design and engineer cable routes for about 10 years. keting department. Hes also a former county commissioner. NEFCOM started seeing competition in the 1980s after deregulation of the industry allowed any company, not just the local phone company, to wire homes for telephone service. About the same time, AT&T and its nationwide Bell telephone system was broken up with an anti-trust lawsuit that spawned regional Bell telephone companies like BellSouth and left other AT&T subsidiaries like Bell Labs intact. Thats when we started to see competition for local and long of AT&Ts divestiture from the Bell System. He explained that through corporate mergers and acquisitions, many of the regional Bell companies have since rejoined to form the countrys largest cell phone carriers. from an exclusive franchise for local and long distance phone service here, courtesy of the federal government. But there are no franchise areas for cell phones, Today, NEFCOMs monopoly is no more, but it retains the lines and infrastructure that other communications companies rely on to reach Baker County customers, whether its over the Internet, a cell phone or land line telephone. Throughout the country, land line service is going away, but its said. He pointed to the recent earthquake in Virginia, during which cellular service was lost due to the high volume of calls being made at the same time. on a highway before you run out of capacity and it stops moving, he said. But the land lines, they stayed intact. Still, theres been a clear trend during the last decade toward wireless communications. NEFCOM is losing land line customers, he said those losses have come while the company has added Internet customers with its high-speed DSL service, particularly in the most rural pockets of the county where other Internet service providers like Comcast dont reach. What we see ourselves doing in the future is still offering telephone service, but getting more said. NEFCOM owns or leases the lines that carry data coming and going from its service area. It can be a local bank communicating with its headquarters in the Northeast or connecting the Internet hub in Jacksonville to cell phone towers here that relay calls across the country. So what does the general manager think about both Sprint and Verizon setting up shop in Macclenny? It does [bother me], he said. We see our land lines going away and we know theyre going to buy a cell phone, he said. But there may be an upside. The more cell phones sold here means more capacity will be needed for the towers and they have to buy that capacity from us, he said. that land line service remains a huge part of our business. And what do the national carriers lack? What separates NEFCOM is our people. Our employees have always been our biggest asset and they always will be. Theyre here, in our churches and coaching Little League games. We even have a former county commissioner as general manager, he said.

He moments before had seen her flee from the nearby home of her mother, 81-year-old Estelle Williamson when he arrived.

Mrs. Williamson told the officer she fears her daughter will harm her if something is not done with her. In another domestic case, a criminal complaint for stalking was filed against James Kirkland, 52, of Macclenny after his estranged wife Cecily Cox, 35, told police he followed her to two local restaurants the evening of September 15. Ms. Cox said she left Woodys BBQ because of Mr. Kirklands presence, then returned there when an acquaintance informed her he had left.

Ms. Cox told Deputy Robert Simpkins similar incidents including following her from work have been ongoing.

Using the customary hand tools of his craft, his demonstration will include splitting and shaping cypress shakes with a froe and wooden mallet and shaping them on a shaving horse with a draw knife. Shakes are wooden shingles more common in earlier times to cover the roof and sides of wooden buildings. With a passion for log cabins and early 19th and 20th Century houses, Mr. Johnsons most recent projects include building a replica of a block-style log cabin with dove tail joints for the Lowndes County Historical Society.

In addition, he has worked on renovations to the towns circa 1890s historical society building. Hes been involved in the preservation of many other sites and projects as well. Mr. Johnsons talent for woodworking began on his familys Lakeland tree farm when he started building cypress bird feeders and houses when he was a boy. Over time, he moved from those small endeavors to constructing bee hives, then went on to larger, more complicated projects such as furniture. He is currently constructing a woodworking shop after rolling the trees to the site himself before cutting, planing and notching the lumber at his sawmill. He also creates large scale animal sculptures of wood such as alligators, woodpeckers and owls. PHOTO COURTESY OF ROGER JOHNSONWoodworker Roger Johnson.fnt Check it out...bakercountypress.com

ursday, September 22, 2011 T B C P Page 11 KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES firstname.lastname@example.orgFlying robot birds, talking toys, slight of hand tricks, eyebending illusions and stuff that makes lots of crazy noise thats what Gainesville magician and science enthusiast Mike Stillwell had in store for local kids at his show September 17. The program took place at the Macclenny Womens Club and was sponsored by the New River Library Co-op. While studying electrical engineering at the University of Florida, Mr. Stillwell supported himself by working as a waiter. He soon found he could increase tips by doing magic tricks for his customers. His magic became so popular with patrons that his boss dismissed him as a waiter and hired him back as a magician. Soon he was performing magic regularly at several venues, learning to juggle and helping run a magic supply shop. I failed my last engineering exam because I was tied up at a juggling convention, he said. By then I knew I wasnt going to be an engineer but I was so close to graduating it didnt make sense not to get the degree. He took a gamble, asked the professor for a second chance on the exam and got it, but under one condition. I had to perform magic for him, said Mike. At first, Saturdays performance at the Womens Club looked doubtful. Show time arrived and only three kids were in the audience. But Magic Mike had been through this before and was undaunted. He just bided his time focusing all his attention on the few children present as if they were the most important people in the world. They squealed with delight as he teased them and repeatedly shot them with his handy, dandy air grenade, a device that sends a massive puff of air rushing past whatever is in its way. As if by magic, kids suddenly began pouring through the door and in minutes all seats were they got it from the air grenade too. Magic Mike demonstrated just how far the gust carried, about 20 feet. From across the room he shot the curtains and they swayed suddenly back and forth. He shot at a folded paper dog which scooted across a table. Ive used this in the mall to make peoples hair suddenly blow back from their heads and they didnt know where it was coming from, he told the kids. The pair of black and white dancing robot toys were a big hit. Operated by a remote control, a child volunteer could make them sway, bend, dip, wiggle, walk and talk. Sometimes, they just started talking by themselves and Science Mike would scold them to be quiet. But what kid doesnt like to make noise? The science geek had brought lots of audio gadgets for them to try, beginning with whistling tubes. Kids frantically spun the ridged, hollow tubes which were about two and a half feet in length, creating a wild whirring sound like a minitornado. When Science Mile added a vibrating rod to the mix, the glass panes in the windows seemed literally to rattle. Tapping the metal rod produced very little sound, but rubbing it just the right way resulted in nearly deafening vibrations. One illusion trick caused the audience to see the head of a volunteer either appear to shrink or expand, which got a huge reaction from the audience. The giant mirage trick perplexed kids with its holographic-like images of a tiger. When children tried to touch the seemingly solid image of the tiger, their fingers passed right through. What was the most fun of the entire show? Afterwards, of course. When it concluded, for about a half hour, kids got to try out all the gadgets and noise-makers and examine the illusion devices up close.KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES email@example.comFour planes from the T-6 ed with the Leeward Air Ranch in as part of Baker Countys Sesquicentennial celebration this Saturday. The antique planes are maintained by pilots who are specially who routinely perform for Veterans Day parades, festivals, funerals and other occasions. There are 500 flyable T-6 planes, which are also known as Texans because so many were produced in Dallas during the 1940s. During WWII the planes were used as bombers, strafers and patrol craft but their primary function was to train hundreds of aviators and conduct spotting missions. They also carried out post-strike inspections to access damage. Being slower and heavier than other planes, they were ideal for spotting enemy targets for jets to accurately deliver their ordnance. It takes a great deal of disRick Hosking, who will be piloting one of the antique training planes when he and his team make two passes timed with speSpectators will witness the Diamond Formation, commonly performed at air shows as well as the stunning Missing Man formation performed to honor a person who has died. According to Mr. Hosking, he and the other pilots, who all personally maintain their aircraft, have a special passion for the T-6 planes. These planes have souls, said he said. They have a presence and character that is missing from modern aircraft. Mt. Zion N.C.

We are available online at www.bakercountypress.comT B C PPage15SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 There were times in recent years when the Lady Wildcat volleyball team would have more players on the bench than fans in the stands. Not anymore. Coach Heather Sulkowskis Lady Cats play to capacity crowds in the gym, and the team is responding to that show of support with excellent play. The girls are 4-1 on the season, with the only loss coming this week to a powerful Bishop Kenny squad. The Lady Cats started the week by beating Terry Parker 3-1 at home on Tuesday, September 13. They cruised to a 25-10 win in the first game before the Indians regrouped to win the second 2025. From then on it was all BCHS as they won the third game 25-9 and easily took the final game 2513. Kayla Holland continued to lead the offense with 15 kills against Terry Parker. Logan Raulerson had 25 from her setter position. The Cats served very well in the match with Brooke Robertson scoring 9 aces and Tori Paulson 8. The JV team won its match 25-14 and 25-14. BCHS hosted a formidable opponent in the Lady Crusaders of Bishop Kenny on Thursday, September 15 and was handed a 3-0 defeat. Kenny was a machine as they defeated the Lady Cats 1225, 10-25, and 10-25. Chelsey Ruise had four blocks in the game and Holland five kills and seven digs. Raulerson had six assists and Cati Fraze six digs. The JV also lost to Kenny by a score of 7-25 and 15-25. The JV is 4-2 on the season. The girls will be home to face Bishop Snyder on September 26 and Union County on September 27 at 5:30 and 6:30 pm.

The Devils are 2-1 on the season with wins over the Knights and Ridgeview after an opening night loss to Fleming Island. They hope to shock BCHS in the first district game for both teams. Cooper is their out and out offensive leader with 483 yards rushing in three games. Many running backs would be happy with that number for the season. He is complemented by Francy Emile, who ran for 121 yards in the comeback win over Ridgeview. The Cats havent faced a running back like Cooper so far this season. Trinity had a stable of good backs operating out of the Wildcat formation, but Cooper is a different story. Hes quick and strong and their marquee player. The Cat defense will have to contain him. Sophomore quarterback Hunter Alexander can throw the ball when he isnt pressured. He completed 12 of 15 passes for 207 yards against Oakleaf. The Blue Devils started shaky, giving up 227 yards through the air in a 42-27 loss to Fleming Island in their first game. They gave up another 200 yards through the air to Ridgeview and 274 yards passing to Oakleaf. Their pass defense is suspect and if Thomas Sirk can find the touch that he had against Westminster, the Blue Devils could pay dearly for a porous secondary. Hell have to be on target though. Defensive backs Zach Devore and Wes Weeks both had interceptions against Oakleaf. Up front, the Blue Devils are big and physical on both sides of the ball. They were trailing to Ridgeview but eventually wore them down and in the second half took control of the game. The Wildcats ran out of gas against Trinity and Coach Ryan Sulkowski has preached the value of being mentally and physically prepared for the game. That means not reading your own press coverage and believing the hype and also being ready to play four quarters of football. You dont win state titles in the power polls, said Sulkowski. You win it on the field. This is a district game; its one weve got to win. The Wildcats had the luxury of an off-week to prepare for their first district showdown, so the coaches should have them ready to go. The game kicks off at 7:30 pm at Memorial Stadium. rfntBaker County Little League Association will hold its annual election of the board of directors on Tuesday, September 27 at 7 pm in the Knabb Sports Complex boardroom.
