CIRCUT COURTCriminal cases arising from sexual activity with minors are unfortunately not uncommon in Baker County. The victims are female and the defendants male in the vast majority of cases, and the ac cused vary in age from teenag ers up through middle age and above. Three such cases found their way onto the circuit court dock et in recent weeks all involv ing then minor age males hav ing sex with girls. Two of the girls were 13 years of age and the third 14. The cases have common ele ments, and the law takes a dim view of sexual predators of all ages, particularly when victims are so young. Florida has stiff er penalties for molesting chil dren under 16 because the law presumes they are not capable of giving consent. Despite the similarities, the sentences handed down in each of these cases differ significant ly. a minor when he was arrested for having sex with a 13-yearold 7th grader at Baker County School, pleaded no contest on October 23 to twin counts of aggravat ed assault with intent to commit a felony. tenced him to five years in prison, followed by a similar then a junior at BCHS who had moved to the Sanderson area from Augusta, GA three months of this year, has no prior crimi nal past.

A workshop hosted by the Baker County Commission on the afternoon of November 1 concluded with all participants agreeing that assessment fees is an idea worth pursuing and that another meeting should be held in early December to continue the discussion. Currently on the table is a proposed assessment for coun ty wide emergency medical ser vices, which would be added to two other existing assessments, other for solid waste disposal. ing a separate fee to help fund law enforcement. Details yet to be worked out include how much the assess ments should be, how increas es should be determined, how much of an offset there should be on county property taxes and what exemptions may be made for the poor and elderly.

The issue came to a head this summer after county com cit and had to supplement the 2011-12 spending plan with $2.2 million from reserves, money that is supposed to be used for emergencies, to offset a loss in tax revenue. The imbalance between expenditures and rev enues will likely continue next cits is no longer a viable option.

Page 2 T B C P ursday, November 3, 2011sentenced by the same judge to 364 days in county jail followed by three years on probation. He must also undergo psychosexual counseling. Mr. Cooley, also a BCHS student, was arrested for committing a sex act with a 14-year-old girl in an abandoned trailer near Sanderson in March of this year. He has a prior record of burglary and the state dropped a petty theft charge as part of the plea agreement. As in the case of Mr. McCoy, the state originally filed charges of lewd and lascivious molestation, which carries a more severe penalty of up to 15 years in prison, but later downgraded them to aggravated assault with a maximum of 10 years per count. vember 22 sentencing date in the case of Aaron Wayne Taylor, 22, for violating probation in a 2009 case where he was charged with repeatedly having sex with a 13-year-old, the sister of a friend. Mr. Taylor, of Glen St. Mary, was given five years of probation in June of that year for the offense that occurred between March and May of 2008. Court records show the state violated his probation for missing seven sessions of psychosexual counseling as ordered by the court. He also told his probation ployment, another provision. Why the disparity in sentencings? Assistant state attorney Ralph Yazdiya said its a matter of differing circumstances from case to case. Sometimes that means the family of a victim is content with probation instead of jail or prison, as in the case of Mr. Taylor after it was learned that the baby born to the girl in December, 2008 was not his. In the case of Mr. McCoy, the prosecutor said, the victims family sought the five-year sentence, half of what Mr. Yazdiya said the defendant could have received for the two counts. On the other hand, his sentence guideline score was 19-20 months. He [Mr. McCoy] didnt fit the profile of a sexual offender, so I wanted to be consistent with other cases and drop the lewd and lascivious to aggravated battery. Ive done that before, explained the prosecutor. ville attorney who defended Mr. McCoy, declined comment this tence, explaining he was exploring ways to re-address it before Judge Rosier. His client, according to court records, aspires to be a musician and played in a church musical group in Augusta, where his family still resides. In addition to his clean criminal record, he had no academic or disciplinary problems during the short time he was enrolled at BCHS. that state law gives the county the authority to implement such an assessment unilaterally but the county desires a partnership with Macclenny and Glen St. Mary to Assessment fees would be uniform. All property owners would pay the same amount, regardless of property values. The current property tax system has built-in inequities, Mr. Thompson said, using data obtained from the lustrate his point. In one scenario, two neighboring homes roughly the same size ent taxable values and county tax bills. One had a taxable value of $29,363 and a $209.93 county tax bill, compared with a $57,743 for the other residence and a bill of $412.83. In another example, a 2,557-square-foot home built in 2005 had a taxable value of $145,687 and a county tax bill of $1,041.59, while a 2,689 square foot house next door built in 2006 had a value of $102,553 and a $733.20 bill. Plausible explanations exist for the differences, Mr. Thompson said, including Floridas Save Our Homes law that places strict limits on annual taxable value increases on homesteaded properties. Another explanation could be that the owner of one home stead exemption because of age or disability while their next door neighbor did not. sessment advocates have made is that an assessment on every parcel would require all property owners to pay something for public services. Today many homeowners pay no taxes at all. Mr. Thompson said there are 9,023 buildings on the county tax rolls presently, excluding churches and government buildings, but about 1,300 properties in the county have no taxable value. After the meeting, he estimated that nearly 12 percent of all privately-owned properties in of zero. Macclenny city officials expressed cautious optimism about the assessment plan, saying they could support it if assurances are given that city taxpayers will receive a reduction in the county tax rate in exchange for the new fee. veloped, Macclenny Commissioner Phil Rhoden said. It spreads the pain equally. But city taxpayers are county taxpayers, too, and we dont require all the services that county taxpayers do. Im already paying my fair share for services not rendered. For example, Mr. Rhoden said, up, so municipal residents dont service nor its dumps. Until a fair tax rate is determined for Macclenny residents, he said he cant support the proposed assessment plan. Macclenny Commissioner Vernon Bennett wasnt willing to give his total commitment just yet, either. Its a well thought out plan but I couldnt vote for it today, Mr. Bennett said.

After months of waiting and anticipating, I get this in the mail. A travesty! I am talking about the new Sears Wishbook I just found hiding in my mailbox. Hiding in my mailbox. That about says it all. When I was a kid checking the mailbox every day for the Sears Wishbook, there was no way it could hide. It was larger than the phone book and had hundreds of pages full of stuff I could only dream about. After all, it was the Wishbook the kids toy Bible. It had everything you could possibly want. This anorexic version doesnt even deserve to be called the Wishbook. Its only a little over a hundred pages long. Where are the toys? Its all video games and tech stuff. When I was 10 years old, late October meant two things Halloween and the Wishbook. Forget raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Halloween and the Wishbook were my two favorite things. They were neck and neck in importance. Halloween meant making costumes and free candy. The Wishbook was all about dreaming. When it arrived, my sister and I fought over who got it first. If she hadnt beaten me to it I would sprawl on the floor. Whatever was on television or on the radio was long forgotten, replaced by dreamland. In the Wishbook, which was split neatly in half between the world of big people and little people, you could find the stuff dreams are made of. Lionel trains and Lincoln Logs and toy planes with machine guns that lit up red like they were really firing. I pretty much ignored the big people section with clothes and watches and televisions and went straight to the toys. I skipped all the little kid stuff and stuck my tongue out at Barbie and Ken and Midge or Madge or whatever her name was as I passed them by in all their pink and purple glory. For me it was all about steam shovels and toy soldiers and dinosaurs and rocket ships. Make a list, my mother said as she walked by. She didnt have to ask twice. I was already making a mental list. Category one was the toys I might actually get ones my parents could afford. Category two were the ones I could only dream about, like race car sets and bikes. Category three toys fell into that hazy area between category one and two these were toys that maybe my parents wouldnt get me but perhaps just perhaps, my Grandma would chip in on. I still remember some of toys from the Wishbook of old. There was the full NASA space port with launching pad, rockets, trucks and bunkers. Way over there in category two. G.I. Joe sat in a desert landscape, hunched behind plastic palm trees and sandbags. He was in full WW II Marine garb and firing a .50 caliber machine gun. Christmas day he arrived in my stocking with his machine gun but minus all the other stuff. I didnt care a lick. I had a back yard to hide him in. I recall one particular category two present that, although I coveted it (sorry Moses), I knew Id never receive the 1965 James Bond race car set. You can still see it if you Google it. It had Bonds Aston Martin roadster and cool stuff like an oil slick and chasms to jump. Theres even a tribute video on YouTube. Alas. No James Bond. But I was shocked and amazed one Christmas morning to discover a Lionel train set under the tree. My parents must have saved for months. I still have it, complete with a working milk car that dispensed milk containers, a log car and coal car that dumped their contents and a locomotive that blew smoke and had a whistle. It was as if the Sears Wishbook had come to life under the tree. To this day looking through the Wishbook is a treasured part of my childhood. So many hours spent dreaming. But like so many things today I shake my head in anguish at what its become. Something to glance at once and throw in the trash. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR In honor of Halloween, we turned to Facebook last week to ask, Whats the scariest person, place or thing in Baker County? Responses varied widely, from cemeteries to moms. Heres some of what our fans on Facebook had to say ...Hanna Blue: My mother, when she gets mad. Dakota Carpenter: The fact that The Baker County Press has nothing better to write about than delinquents and dead people. Anna Bell: It used to be the front of Scarboroughs o ce. Brent Michael Dennard: Turner Cemetery. At night. Lisa Curtiss: I remember the Wildman in Taylor. Pat Salter: The juniors oat in the homecoming parade! Very creative. Great job guys. Yall were awesome! Lupe Campos: One Man Cemetery. At night. Christina Ladymasterchief Harris: The lack of education in some areas. Leslie Semones Cannon: Walmart. Jodie J. Lord: Macedonia Cemetery at night! April Sheree Brogdon: Hamp Register Road ... Real spooky at night! Wayne Stewart: The hospital if Im almost dead and trying to make it to Jacksonville. Jason Knabb: Quarter woman? Who remembers her from the 80s? Deb n Phil Cypert: The traffic congestion in some neighborhoods on Halloween night. Hopefully, the sheriffs department will monitor this situation again this year. Have a safe and Happy Halloween! Marc Lyon: If you ever drug the strip in the late 70s thru the 80s you knew the Quarter Woman. She lived with her husband in Ms. Mae Browns garage apartment on South Blvd. Her husband worked for The TimesUnion servicing the newspaper boxes in Macclenny. She was a Macclenny Icon! Ms. Quarter loved her newspapers as well as her drink. She kept a small wire in her bra that had several uses. She would go behind her husband on his paper route and pick the boxes and take all the newspapers, then she would stand at busy spots in town and sell the papers for a quarter.

Do I agree that the parents are solely responsible for their safety? No! As a grandparent and taxpayer, Ive voiced my concerns on more than one occasion to Commissioner Mike Crews and Superintendent of Schools Sherrie Raulerson regarding what I believe to be one of the most dangerous bus stops in the county. I believe they both realize this stop may not be in the best interest of our children. Its at CR 229 North and Hid Dugger Road, where approximately two dozen parents must drive their children to the stop where the dirt road meets CR 229. Not more than a half mile to the south is a blind curve where logging trucks are constantly entering and exiting onto CR 229, not to The article quoted Mr. Jacobs, the school districts transportation director, as saying the operating budget is the major constraint when along safe roads. Apparently, this doesnt apply to this particularly stop. Since when did we stop considering the precious lives and safety of our children in lieu of budget constraints? Were not talking about the life of one child (which would be one too many); were talking about a dozen or more whose lives are at risk on these dark and foggy mornings when theyre forced to cross CR 229 in There are no lights, no crossing guards, no law enforcement there. However, the parents, grandparents and guardians of our children are there doing their best to ensure the safety of the children. With the ongoing growth of our county, I believe its time for everyone involved in the welfare of our children to review not only this bus stop but all stops to ensure the safety of our children.Regina Berger Macclenny Dear Editor: I am a proud parent of a child at ABC Learning Center and was very impressed with how the employees handled a parent who was taking pictures of kids in another age group other than his childs and being overly obnoxious, talking loudly, and making no sense at a Halloween party at their facility [See related article on page 8]. They handled the incident with class and I feel very safe for the protection of my 3-yearold in their care. This parent was rude to the girls and the police do is thank them for taking such great care of our young ones.Amy Chism St. George, GA Dear Editor: As an animal lover, I believe compassion is the key whether they are as big as a bear or tiny as a chihuahua. They all deserve love. To the FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission), was it really necessary to kill such a beautiful animal, knowing it hadnt hurt a soul? Yes, it could have very easily, but was it the bears fault it wasnt monitored properly when it was relocated from Middleburg to Camp Blanding? Do we really need to know what the consequences are of black bear and human interactions? Not safe, and not very smart. It is possible to tranquilize an animal as big as a black bear. Why was it unsuccessful two weeks earlier? Why couldnt they try again? Why must you shoot an animal in the head that you let roam freely because of neglectful monitoring? The bottom line is its FWCs fault. I am very disappointed.Natalie Giordano MacclennyDear Editor:Recently, I was out of town and my house was broken into and my television stolen. The door may or may not have been locked, and my son was inside asleep. cy so he did not hear the intruder. Though prudent, who expects someone to be afraid in their own home and always lock the door? After all, we live in Baker County! Not only was I violated by the burglar who broke into my home, but I also feel violated by the police who insinuated either I had something to do with the robbery or I deserved it because of the neighborhood I live in (Joan Street). Also, I feel violated by the local rent-to-own dealership that expects me to pay for the television, even though I no longer have it. Sometimes legal and moral have very separate boundaries. I have to have continued faith in the goodwill of Baker County, but Ronnie Hembry Macclenny Dear Editor: After reading Jim McGauleys column last week about Occupy Baker County, I believe the protesters on Wall Street need to occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington (the White House). The hope and change promised by our President has been replaced by doom and despair for these reasons: Sustained long-term unemployment; Record numbers of foreclosures; Record numbers of children and families living below the poverty level; Record number of families receiving food stamps; $4 trillion deficit for our children and grandchildren to repay; Wasteful spending (heard about Solyndra?). The list goes on. I wonder if my children will have the same opportunities I had. I worry about their future and the future of my country.Theresa L.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, November 3, 2011He was denied bail and re mained in county jail early this week. Three days after his arrest, Mr. Howell called his sister, who was charged with caring for the youngest child and her 15-yearold brother. Mr. Howell was al lowed to speak with the girl and blamed her for his arrest, said Sheriff Joey Dobson. That call has led to another charge for witness tampering. Mr. Howells criminal history nor drug violations, Inv. Brannan said. According to the investigator, police seized 9 pounds of pro cessed pot for the Glen address, likely taken from 90 marijuana plants found in another room mi nus their buds. Also seized were six plants the investigator said were cloned to grow the others and an illegally sawed-off shot gun. The property was kept secure with the blacked-out windows, electrical fencing and infrared video surveillance that could be monitored from inside both mo bile homes. It was a pretty elaborate growing operation ... with one room devoted to growing, anoth er room for chemicals and fertil izer and another room for pro cessing, said Inv. Brannan. Mr. Howell rented the proper ty from its owner Jean Edwards of Orange Park. He has resided there for three or four years, Inv. Brannan said. The suspects niece, who at tends the Baker County Middle the marijuana growing and abuse October 26. They in turn contact Billy Kinghorn, who resides across the road from the sus pects address, said he rarely saw Mr. Howell, but recalled seeing the younger siblings get on and off the bus or play in the yard. I try to take care of my place, he said. I dont worry about no body else. The childrens mother and grandmother, both in Ohio, said they were unaware and shocked by the alleged abuse. I love my children with all my heart, said the mother Shannon Smith. I did not know any of this was happening. Their grandmother, Debra Grigsby, said she used to be close to Mr. Howell but it all changed after his father James Howell died. Ms. Grigsby said the suspect wouldnt let her talk to the children and threatened her if she came to visit. She added shes very proud of her granddaughter for reporting the alleged abuse despite being scared of her uncle. I dont care what happens to him. I just want to get my grand children back here where they belong, she said. The two youngest siblings were removed from their aunts custody and placed in a foster home by the Florida Department of Children and Families, said the departments spokesman John Harrell. He said allowing the sister to speak with Mr. Howell from jail was absolutely inappropriate and caregivers at the new foster home understand that Mr. How ell should not be communicating with them. Mr. Harrell added that the oldest sibling has received some assistance from the department, but as an adult the state would only be involved should the 18-year-old be deemed disabled by a doctor. Sheriff Dobson said late Tues day he was unaware of the oldest siblings whereabouts. A surveillance video and a Facebook social network site were instrumental in leading po lice to the identity of a Macclenny man charged with stealing a pow er trimmer from a warehouse in the rear of the Badcock Home Furnishing store on CR 228. Benjamin Cline, 23, is charged with walking off with the mower valued at $440 the afternoon of October 27. Deputy Robert Simpkins said a video depicts a white male later identified as Mr. Cline enter the storage area at 1:37. The officer soon determined the trimmer was taken to Baker Pawn by a fe male who said she was pawning it for her boyfriend. Based on the pawn records, she was identified as Autumn Stieger, 20, who maintains a Facebook site that police used to identify her and her boyfriend via posted photographs. Deputy Simpkins then questioned the couple at Ms. Stiegers Jule Rd. residence in Macclenny and arrested Mr. Cline for grand theft. A criminal complaint filed with the state attorneys office charges the girlfriend with deal ing in stolen property, also a fel ony. Court records show Mr. Cline has numerous criminal charges pending, including felony theft, burglary, two counts of possessing prescription drugs, trafficking in stolen property and pos session of marijuana. The state has dropped other cases. In other theft arrests, Eddie Fields, 38, of Macclenny was jailed on October 30 for taking $900 cash from Jennifer Brooks while the victim was at his Syca more St. residence. Mr. Fields first told Deputy Ja cob Satterwhite that Ms. Brooks spent the money on drugs the previous evening, but under fur ther questioning he produced all but $100 of the missing money. The suspects girlfriend then came up with the remaining money after he was arrested. He is charged with grand theft. Police were also called to the scene of several residential thefts the past week: door to enter the residence of Anthony Jones on Circle G Lane in Sanderson during daylight hours on October 26. Mr. Jones told Deputy Patrick McGauley two phones valued at $100 each were taken, as was a gold necklace valued at $2500 and belonging to Devin Williams, who also resides there. The necklace was hidden in a shoe. unit valued at $400 was taken from an unoccupied one-room structure belonging to Kathryn Manning off Noah Raulerson Rd. Ms. Manning told Deputy Daniel Nichols the unit went missing between October 26-29. A neighbor told the officer she observed a white Chevrolet pick up driven by a white male in his 30s on the property a week ear lier, and the same vehicle about 2:30 am on October 27. On the second visit, she be lieves she heard the voices of three males. six tire rims valued at $320 were taken from a shed and the bed of a pickup at his residence on Ab ernathy Circle between October 24-28. He gave Deputy Chris Walker the name of a west county man who had earlier inquired about the wheels. that someone entered the residence of her daughter Patricia Stephens on Morningside Lane in Glen the evening of October 29 and took a purse, identification car, $146 in cash and prescrip tion medication. Deputy Chris Walker later questioned a male who had been at the address doing yard work that afternoon. He denied in volvement. Clarification: In last weeks edition it was reported that Christie Raulerson, 37, of Mac clenny was arrested October 18 for trespassing at CVS Pharma cy. She was named in a criminal complaint in lieu of being taken to jail. Police arrested a Glen St. Mary man for aggravated assault after he allegedly held a knife to the throat of another man during a fight outside the accuseds resi dence on J.C. Harvey Rd. Deputy Robert Aberly re sponded to the scene about 6:20 pm on October 30 and arrested Kenneth Phillips, 48, after taking statements from James Stavely, 42, of Macclenny and Mr. Phil lips girlfriend, 27-year-old Bran dy Mills. Mr. Phillips allegedly con fronted Mr. Stavely after the lat ter returned to the address to re turn a change purse belonging to Ms. Mills. The suspects juvenileaged brother also was involved in the fracas but was not charged. Mr. Phillips was also charged with battery on the girlfriend, who told Deputy Aberly she was choked just prior to Mr. Stavelys return to the residence. Criminal complaints were filed earlier that afternoon against two parties to a distur bance at a Maple St. residence in the Macclenny II subdivision. Deputy Daryl Mobley filed the complaints against Garrett Sim mons, 26, for assault on Kayla Bennett, 19, of Macclenny, and a complaint for battery against Lindsey Townsend, 20, of Glen St. Mary involving the same vic tim. erson was named in a battery complaint for an alleged attack on Bobby Blue, 47, also of Sand erson, outside Macs Liquors just after midnight on October 30. Deputy Earl Lord said he found Mr. Blue in a semi-con scious state when he arrived at the downtown Macclenny bar about 12:30 am. A witness said he saw the parties arguing and Mr. Follis punch him in the face before driving off. The witness identified the as sailant, who was also picked out by the victim from a photo lineup, said Deputy Lord. Treatment rooms are private and con dential. TIRED OF LOOSE DENTURES?

In the future, visitors to the Baker County Farmers Market can expect to see more vendors selling so-called cottage food products, which are produced without a license and outside commercial kitchens. We knew the legislation was pending but didnt know it had passed until it was brought to our attention by one of our current vendors, said Helene Guest, who is a co-chair of the Baker County Farmers Market. According to Ms. Guest, many vendors who produced cottage products had apin March, 2010. The market couldnt accommodate them because at that time laws regulating homemade food items, especially any containing animal, dairy or other products needing refrigeration, required they come from a comAn individuals home kitchen, provided its but the process is expensive. And vendors are required to take classes to get a food safety license from the state. For the average person, this process is not an option, market managers soon learned. But the recent deregulation of cottage food relaxes requirements for certain food items such as breads, cakes, cookies, candies, jams, jellies and fruit pies. A number of guidelines remain in place for cottage foods, however. No state license is required, but county and city regulations must still be followed. Such foods must be packaged with a label that clearly states the item is a cottage food product and is not subject to Floridas food safety regulations. Other required label information includes the type of item, the producers name and home address, a detailed list of ingredients and the net weight. Labels must also identify ingredients that are possible allergens, like peanuts. Products may not be sold over the Internet, by mail order or at wholesale. Cottage food vendors are also limited to $15,000 in gross sales annually. Before the law changed, the farmers market here was limited in the variety of vendors it could attract, something that has been a It will be a good thing for our market here in Baker County, said Ms. Guest. Well be able to attract more vendors and offer more variety which will be nice for the customers. Ms. Guest is enthusiastic about the new law for other reasons, too. This is perfect for someone who wants to start a business and avoid a lot of overhead, as well as build or add to a strong local client base, she said, It would be very good for anyone wanting to just work part-time or someone like a mother with small children and limited time. Ms. Guest said the farmers market has expressed interest but didnt meet regulatory requirements at that time. She hopes the next spring season, which begins in March 2012, opens with many more vendors signed up. What this deregulation will do is allow people to do what they do well, to sell it and To read more about the new cottage food quirements and more go to www.freshfromServices tab.

The disease only occurs in about 250 people annually. Even through all of this, except on days just after chemo when he had no energy, he has remained the happiest little boy, she said. He always thinks of That concern for others, so remarkable in a child of 7, will manifest in an equally remarkable way this Christmas as family and friends a very personal wish. His wish is for blankets, said Ms. Davis, who earlier this grandsons request around Macclenny. Blankets for Benjamin will be, as the family puts it, a celebration of life. Benjamins most recent MRI showed that the cancerous tumors which were discovered in his face and sinus cavities last March have shrunk and appear to have become inactive. The family was joyful at the news and asked young Benjamin what he wanted to do to celebrate his last chemo treatment, scheduled for December 23. His request amazed them all. Most little boys would ask for a trip to Disney World or a new four-wheeler, but not Benjamin. Having spent a lot of time at Wolfson Childrens Hospital and the oncology unit at Nemours, he has gotten to know a lot of other children struggling with cancer. To celebrate his last treatment, he wants to be able to give them each a blanket. One of the side effects of chemotherapy is weight loss, which heat and the patient always feels cold, said Ms. Davis. A blanket is an essential thing to have when youre going through that. Members of the Davis family have taken his request and are running with it. Ms. Davis and asking for blanket donations and visiting some of the local businesses about participating in the drive. She is encouraged at the response from the community. Benjamin is never without his Seminoles blanket, she says, referencing the boys favorite football team. You see it in a lot of photos taken of him. The family is asking for donations of blankets that will appeal to boys, girls or generic designs that work for both. They can be new or used, handmade or purchased from the store. They must be very clean because children with cancer have impaired immune systems. Blankets will be collected by the family through December 21. Ms. Davis is excited because she has already received several donations. People have been really nice, she said. We want to do everything we can to make this happen. Benjamin has always thought about everyone elses happiness. He wont even come away from a doctor or dentist appointment unless he can bring home a treat for his sister, as well as himself. To donate a blanket or for more information call Linda Davis at 305-8615 or Becky Davis at 275-3074. ATTORNEYDavid P.

Deputy Steven Smith said Mr. Byrd assumed a threatening stance when confronted and behaved in a belligerent manner before being handcuffed and placed in a patrol car. The officer shortly after noticed a white powder around the suspects mouth, and he admitted to chewing up five Oxycodone pills he extracted from a cigarette pack while in the patrol car. He was medically cleared before being booked at the jail for disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence. His criminal past includes arrests for the same offense and for domestic violence. Deputy Smith later determined that Mr. Byrd has a prescription for the pain-killing medication.

The group consisting of Chamber of Commerce director Darryl Register, Sheriff Joey Dobson, former county comManager Gerald Dopson, among others expressed a clear preference for retaining Congressman Ander Crenshaw as the countys congressional representative. The Jacksonville Republican sent his aide, Nathan Riska, to the meeting. He said Rep. Crenshaw wants to keep the regions Station Jacksonville and Naval Station Mayport, within his district. Today the congressmans District 4 encompasses portions of Duval Leon and Jefferson counties and all of Baker, Nassau, Union, Columbia, Hamilton and Madison counties. those as much as possible, Mr. Riska said of the naval installations. Redistricting committees in the Florida House and Senate have been meeting to review district maps suggested by the public for the states congressional seats as well as state house and senate seats. Senate redistricting committee chairman Don Gaetz (R-Destin) recently announced the receipt of 100 citizen maps. Lawmakers have not publicly unveiled any maps of their own making. The lack of clarity on potential districts makes crafting a said Mr. Register, who attended the October 18 senate redistricting committee meeting before morning of October 25. Its still so early in the process this will be debated and re-debated and over-debated through the end of session, he said. Still, the group agreed to support Rep. Crenshaw by submitting to legislators a map that keeps the congressman as Baker Countys representative in Washington, D.C. by the November 2 deadline for citizen submittals. A week after the October 25 meeting Mr. Register said the strategy had changed. Instead, he tor future maps released by the legislature and oppose any that remove Baker County from Rep. Crenshaws district. A district map creation tool daredistricting.com. The tool lets citizens grow and shrink districts while automatically adjusting and displaying the number of people in the resulting district based on 2010 census data. Each district has been assigned by the state legislature an ideal number of people. For instance, Rep. Crenshaws District 4 is 6.9 percent overpopulated. Mr. Register began creating the new map during the October 25 meeting, projecting his laptop computer screen to another screen on the wall. He rearranged District 4 to get within about 5000 people of the ideal population of 48,073 by removing Madison, Jefferson and Leon counties. The group reasoned that with another slice from Hamilton County, the district could reach the ideal population. remain with Rep. Crenshaw, they were resigned to the expectation that Baker County will not remain within Florida Senator Charlie Deans (R-Inverness) District 3. ers passed the so-called Fair Districts amendments to the Florida Constitution, insiders in Tallahassee appeared certain that Sen. Deans district would be redrawn to exclude Baker County. The amendments require that Congressional districts and state legislative districts are made as compact as possible and use existing geographic boundaries like county lines, major highways or waterways, all while protecting minority districts. Mr. Register said the senate redistricting committees top priority during the redistricting process is keeping minority districts, like that of US Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Jacksonville), intact. Sen. Deans district includes all of Baker, Suwannee, Lafayette, Taylor, Hamilton and Dixie counties; and portions of Columbia, Madison, Jefferson, Levy, Citrus and Marion counties. Its overpopulated by 25,048 people. Sen. Dean has been a staunch opponent of privatizing management of Northeast Florida State Hospital, a measure supported by the Republican leadership in Tallahassee. A probable replacement district for Sen. Deans district, loOelrichs (R-Gainesville) District 14, which borders Baker County on the south and includes Bradford, Union, Gilchrist and Alachua counties, and parts of Columbia, Levy, Marion and Putnam counties. Sen. Oelrichs term is up in 2014 and Mr. Register said hes the past. In the senate I dont think we can do much, but in the congressional districts I think we can, he told the group. With respect to Florida House Rep. Janet Adkins (R-Fernandina Beach), whose District 12 includes Baker, Nassau, Union, Bradford and a portion of Clay counties, the group agreed to support her representation as the redistricting process moves ahead. Should Baker County be removed from District 12, Mr. Register said the county could be roped in with Rep. Charles Van Zants (R-Palatka) District 21. He added that while Rep. Van Zant resisted privatizing the state hospital in 2009, he reversed his position the following year. Elected officials will have an opportunity to craft their own maps at some point, said Mr. Register. And we can work with them on that when the time comes.

The study is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Disorders. The program will compare family-based group treatment programs versus a treatment program in which only parents attend group treatment meet ings. The programs are designed to help children establish healthier weight status, as well as healthier eating and exercise habits. The treatment programs last one year. Group treatment sessions will occur once per week during the first few months of the pro gram, but will decline in frequen cy to once a month at the end of the program. Families will also be followed for 12 months af ter treatment ends to assess the long-term impact of the treat ments. E-FLIP for Kids is available to Baker County parents and their children between the ages of 8 and 12. To participate, chil dren must have a parent or legal guardian who is willing to attend group treatment sessions. All treatment visits will be held at the cooperative extension office (Ag Center) on W. Macclenny Ave. Families will be given $10 per treatment session to com pensate them for travel costs. Screening visits for the study are currently underway, with the treatment programs beginning in February 2012. Families interest ed in signing up for the program or who have questions should call the E-FLIP for Kids office toll free at 1-866-673-9623. Our team will help you determine your eligibility for the study. The E-FLIP for Kids team is taking calls now.

ursday, November 3, 2011 T B C P Page 13 Washington Oaks State Park and botanical garden is one of those places you can drive by every day for years without ever knowing of the absolute treasure tucked away just out of sight from the busy road. Do yourself a favor and visit. Youll be surprised that such a unique marine environment is so accessible to northern Floridians. Located just 2 miles south of Marineland below Crescent Beach, the state park is bisected by Highway A1A. On one side, bordered by the Matanzas River, visitors can stroll through a beautiful botanical garden. On the other, beachcombers landscape, more reminiscent of the rugged, rocky California coast than Florida. Either locale is a treat for the senses and great for photo opportunities. Most of the parks 400 acres exist in their natural state. The formal gardens are nestled within a hammock of huge oak trees draped with Spanish moss. Throughout are walkways, waas camellias, bird of paradise and many varieties of roses invites visitors to stroll leisurely and smell the fragrant blooms. The beauty of the gardens have made them a popular location for weddings. Along the Matanzas River side of the garden is a seawall with benches and BBQ grills. Migrating marine birds and manatee are frequently seen in this area. This section of the park also contains trails for hiking and biking wall and in the surf on the beach side. The unique rock outcrop along the beach is thought to be the result of a bar of sediment formed 100,000 years ago just off the shore during the last interglacial ice age. Sea levels later fell nearly 30 feet, exposing the bar to air and weather. Percolating rain water dissolved the calcium carbonate in the sediments coquina (shell) material which cemented it together into rock. Five thousand years ago, ocean waves began wearing away the exposed rock, carving out the startling coastline seen today. The tract of land that eventually became the park was once owned by a relative of George Washington. In 1963 Louise and Owen Young bought the property, built a winter retirement home and established the gardens. In 1964 they donated most of the property to the State of Florida. With separate entrances to the gardens and the beach, visitors must drive to the section they want to visit. The good news is one entrance ticket is good for both areas and the nominal entrance fee is about the best bargain around. Pets are welcome on the hiking and biking trails but not in the gardens or on the beach and must be on a leash at all times. The park address is 6400 N. Oceanshore Blvd. (A1A) and is open from 8 am until sundown 365 days a year. $ $ WE BUY TIMBER $ $ PUBLIC CLEARANCE SALE GOING ON NOW PRICES SLASHED ON EVERY SINGLE ITEM!Easy In-Store Financing | Delivery AvailableTelevisions Living Room Furniture Mattress Sets Appliances Bedroom Furniture Bunkbeds Entertainment Centers Accessories & Much Much More!

The Cats started fast the evening of October 28 and kept pressure on their district rival on the way to a 49-0 victory. The win means that the Cats will battle Bishop Kenny for the district title November 4. The Wildcats jumped out to an early lead after a pair of Falon Lee runs that set up an 18-yard touchdown pass from Thomas Sirk to Kendrick Singleton. Lee cracked a 38-yard run and another for 24 yards to set up the score and an early 7-0 lead. The Wildcats got back the services of placekicker Jeremy Wannamaker, who has been out for more than a month with a high ankle sprain. Wannamaker is still not 100 percent. Though he was perfect on extra points, he was kicking left footed to avoid the strain on his ankle. The Wildcat defense continued its dominating performance as it held Forrest to just 5 yards rushing on 22 attempts. Forrest had more success through the air, but was unable to crack the Cat defense. Forrest gave the ball back to the Wildcats, who went on an 80-yard march culminating in another Sirk-to-Singleton touchdown pass. The 33-yard strike put BCHS up 14-0. It was quickly a three-touchdown lead. Rickie Tharpe picked off Forrest quarterback Eric Stokes and gave BCHS the ball at the 14-yard line. Sirk found Brandon Miller for the quick touchdown at the end of the first quarter. The start of the second period provided the most exciting highlight of the game. Forrest had its most effective drive of the game, moving the ball through the air all the way to the BCHS 30yard line. But Stokes made a mistake and Falon Lee anticipated the pass, picking it off at the 10-yard line. From there he went from defensive back to running back, out-running the Rebels for a 90-yard interception return for a touchdown. The interception seemed to let all the air out of Forrest and the Rebels would not challenge for the rest of the game. On their next series, the Cats converted yet again. Sirk found Lee at midfield and hit on the next play for a Singleton 50-yard touchdown strike. Wannamaker added the PAT for a 35-0 lead. The Wildcats got the ball back inside Forrest The Wildcats are in for the game of the season on Friday when they take on Bishop Kenny for all the marbles. Ironically, this is just one of many games of the season. The Westminster game was called that, and then the Trinity game and finally the Bolles match up. In reality, they all met the criteria. But Fridays game with the Crusaders is the one that qualifies. Its win or go home for BCHS. If they beat Kenny they are the district champs. If they lose they dont make the playoffs because they have lost to Clay in head -tohead competition unless the unthinkable happens and Clay falters on Friday versus Forrest. There are a lot of similarities between the two teams. Like BCHS, Kenny has a lot of weapons. They have a marquee quarterback in sophomore Jon Wolford and a big time receiver in Ahmad Fulwood. Their other receivers are all solid and Peter Helow and Wolfords big brother Bobby are favorite targets. Though they dont have as solid a running back as Falon Lee, Cameron Singletary is also dangerous. Kurt Krier can kick the ball a mile. The Wildcat linebackers will have to be very alert and the safeties and defensive backs cant go to sleep or Wolford will air it out. The real question will be whether the Wildcat pass rush can overcome the Kenny offensive line. Elijah Lee, CeCe Jefferson, Hunter Sullivan, Jared Lee, Rickie Tharpe and the rest of the defensive front have put the hurry up on a few quarterbacks this season. If they can harass Wolford it could keep his numbers down. Will Kenny give up points defensively like it has in other games? When hes having a good night, Thomas Sirk can be as accurate as they come. When hes not on target or his receivers are heavily covered he can beat you with his legs, as Bolles discovered. A Wildcat pep rally and bon fire is scheduled for November 3 at Memorial Stadium starting at 7:30 pm. Win a p Wildcat foballtickets! p f b b b a a a b a b b a b l l l a l a l l l l l l l l at 180 S.
