COVERING BAKER COUNTY SINCE 1929 The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings I t happened with lightning speed. At 6 pm on January managers of 14 other Food Lion stores in the Jacksonville district got the news on a con ference call. Their stores along with 127 others in Florida and several southeastern states were closing. Earlier that evening, Mr. Macclenny Food Lion eight years, was told to have all his 38 employees at the store for a 9 pm meeting. I thought Id be tell ing them we were changing to a Harveys (a co-brand of Belgium-based Delhaize that owns the chains). We were all who has been assigned to the Macclenny store on South 6th for a dozen years. The announcement sent similar shock waves across the First Coast and elsewhere in Florida where a total of 31 stores were shuttering. It also sent Food Lions 38 employees (13 full-time) scrambling to It was emotional. I had to read a prepared statement and Ive never been that emotional in my life. A lot of these people are bread winners, said Mr. cline it at the store in his native Blountstown, FL. The sole surviving Food Lion in northeast Florida is the new prototype store in Lake City. It is converting to a Har not inclined to pull up roots in Macclenny and may end up landing a position in Lake City, a possibility for other fur loughed workers as well. In the meantime, Food Lion will operate on shorted (8 am-6 pm) hours until Feb ruary 15 or be fore then if bargain seekers sweep the shelves clean. Ship ments of meat, produce and other perishables have ceased, and many of the drink and chips vendors were emptying shelves this week, transferring merchandise to other outlets. Nearby Winn-Dixie, which stands to gain with the closing, will likely pick up some of the Food Lion employees.

Sheriff Joey Dobson said the convicted felon, whose name late that afternoon. Weve ruled him out, said the sheriff. Weve got people gathering intelligence and we feel theyll come up with something eventually. Surveillance photos show the robbers, believed to be two black males, wearing hoodies with their faces hidden, entering the gas sta tion store at US 90 and West Boulevard at 6:20 am. One of them was believed to be armed with a pistol and ordered the clerk to hand over cash, while the second man stood guard at the front door. The clerk was not harmed. Several teams from the Florida Department of Corrections canine unit scoured the area south of the store along the CSX tracks and One suspect was described as wearing a multicolored plaid shirt, perhaps red and black, over a black hooded sweatshirt and using a multicolored bandanna to conceal his face, according to the sheriffs He was also wearing dark pants and tennis shoes. The second suspect was described as wearing all black and using a hood from a hooded sweatshirt to conceal his face. The suspect was in dark pants and white tennis shoes as well as gloves. They covered themselves up pretty good, said Sheriff Dobson. Police are also seeking two black males suspected of stealing elec tronics from the Macclenny Walmart about 1:15 am on July 15. They reportedly left the store in a silver 4-door sedan. O n the heels of news that Food Lion is ending its 23-year presence in Baker County next month came word that a Save-A-Lot discount grocer plans to open its doors in south Macclenny in mid-April.

Page 2 T B C P ursday, January 19, 2012 Dear Editor: Just 45 minutes after picking up my copy of The Press sitting here composing a letter to once again defend the profession that I am so proud to be a part of. I must address the letters published in January 12 edition because they are misleading. First of all, the letters classify all public employees as union mem bers they are not. Florida is a right to work state. The letters also state that the FRS (Florida Retirement System referred to as a pension in the letters) is underfunded it is not. We have a very healthy retirement system, one of the top four in the nation. The gov ernor simply wants to use the FRS money for other programs. It is Secondly, much of one letter is spent addressing the writers thought that public employees and public unions do not think it is important to support our own retirement. This is an opinion and not a fact. The fact is, when the FRS was created it was sold to public employ ees as a deferred wages program to entice highly skilled workers to retirement). Employees were under the perception that they were paying into their retirement since this was money that they were promised but not going to see for a very long time. When the governor decided to require us to pay an additional 3% (this past July) he broke the agree ment that was originally in place. I cant speak for every profession but I do know that most teach ers have a separate private retirement that they pay into each month because the FRS retirement is so little. If the state would like us to contribute additionally, they should give us the option of participat ing at all. Many of us would take our money to other investment agencies. I do not think it is fair that we lost 3% of our annual income without a choice. That was money that most people counted on and needed to make ends meet. I am not sure why the writer thinks she is paying our way since FRS is made up of funds that have always been intended for those employees deferred wages. Yes, tax dollars do pay the salaries of most public employees, but those employees are taxpayers them selves, so then arent they paying their own way? And, I would like to know how much is dues collect costing you? are the evil and corrupt. I am a union member, I have never thought of myself as evil or corrupt. I am a mother, a wife and a teacher.

I want to be recognized for the fact that I went to college for four years (and more than that for many of us) and give more than 100 percent each day, and I would like to not see my paycheck decrease each year.

Its been tough burning this year, Mr. Hart said. Weve had a dry fall so the opportunities to burn were few and far between. We really have to pick our days. Were trying to burn every day we can, but its been a little tougher this year. The districts goal is to burn about 35,000 acres a year. The Florida Forest Service has ignited about 400 acres in the Bethea forest in the northern county. Most of our prescribed burns in that area enhance timber management, although some is geared towards hazardous fuels reduction and maintenance with said Kurt Wisner, public infor mation officer and mitigation specialist with the Florida Forest Services Suwanee Forestry Cen ter in Lake City, by e-mail in early January. Last year proved to the be the 2000 for the Suwanee Forestry Center, which serves Baker, Co lumbia, Suwannee, Hamilton, Bradford and Union counties. Prolonged exposure to severeto-extreme drought conditions made the district a tinderbox, Mr. Wisner said. The centers firefighters re sponded to 472 blazes in the dis trict that scorched 9,619 acres. Uncontrolled debris burning make it the most common cause. Still, 89 percent of the fires were caused by people. Lighting but burned 85 percent of the to tal acreage. Inside Baker County, state firefighters responded to 85 acres. The top cause here was and 650 charred acres. Florida received less than 50 percent of normal precipitation for December and our district is still experiencing drought condi tions, Mr. Wisner said. Most of Baker and Columbia, and all of Suwannee and Hamilton coun ties, are under moderate drought conditions. Union, Bradford, and the portions of Baker and Colum abnormally dry. He cautioned that residents, particularly on dry and windy days, should avoid outdoor burning altogether. Even under the best conditions, Mr. Wisner warned, residents should exer cise extreme caution when burning outside. If its too hot to touch, its too hot to leave unattended, he said. Fire Chief Richard Dolan of the Baker County Fire Depart ment said the morning of Janu ary 17 his volunteers responded two weeks, most of them the re sult of unattended debris burns. guished later that day. atively small in size and havent age.

The company also announced owns in Southeast and MidAtlantic states names like Bloom, Bottom Dollar, Reids and Harveys. From page 1 Save-A-Lot here Closing of Food Lion Dear Editor: Two letters in The Press last week seemed to imply that pri vate prisons save money. This is inconclusive. Its unclear how much coun ties and states save by priva tizing, or if they save at all. As The New York Times reported last spring, data from the Ari zona Department of Corrections showed that inmates in some of much as $1,600 per year more than in state-run facilities. Recently in Florida, after law makers passed a plan to priva tize 30 prisons in 18 counties, the Hernando County Sheriffs ship with Corrections Corpora tion of America, the countrys largest private prison contrac tor. The county took over the lockup, saving roughly $1 mil lion in the process, according to The St. Petersburg Times The private prison industry donated over $1.5 million to the Republican Party of Florida. I wonder if this has anything to do with the push for private prisons? They do not save tax payer money, but they do make money and lots of it. One letter writer referred to a 911 operation making $150,000 and retiring on $183,000 annu ty this happened in, or who the operator was. I do not know of any state employee other than UF and FSU football coaches making that amount. I do know of some considered working poor and who collect food stamps and I am a corrections Sgt. with over 23 years with the state and I make the vast sum of $41,000 a year. And yes, I am a proud Teamster union member and I pay into my retirement and health care. Although I am a sin ner, I do not consider myself evil or corrupt as one letter writer described. John Bellovich Macclenny Dear Editor: I saw in a recent story that a Lt. [Billy] Miller claims that the sheriff department doesnt en force the [Macclenny] parking ordinance unless a complaint is made or a dangerous situation is created by a parked truck. I called the sheriffs depart ment and complained about the guy who lives next door who was working on his engine and then washing his semi on a street that has a no parking sign in my resi dential neighborhood. were, The sheriffs department does not and will not enforce parking ordinances, that is why Macclenny has code enforce on December 26. That is not the only issue I have with them. On one occa sion I called about a semi block only to be given the runaround. Semis parked overnight block at the intersection of East and North Blvds. How would you like to be awakened at all times of the night by the roar of a semi when the owner agreed prior to the purchase of his home not to park it in our residential area. Rafael Gonzalez Macclenny Dear Editor: There were several letters in last weeks newspaper about unions and politics. I have no comment about most of what was written as I believe every one has the right to an opinion. However, I do have a com ment about a statement in one of the letters that I took as a personal attack against me, my family and friends. Its obvious that the person who wrote union members are evil, corrupt whiners does not know anyone in Macclenny very well. This town has been held together by the very people she obviously abhors. Your neighbors, church friends and even someone in your family are probably union members. To make a blanket statement about all members of a group is hate mongering and bigotry. If every union member in this town stopped spending money locally or volunteering time, businesses would close down, doctors and dentists would lose patients, after-school programs would disappear and fund rais ing of all kinds would suffer. I say to all of you who think union members are evil, corrupt whiners, take a good look at who is taking care of your children, policing the real evil, protecting ing the evil and corrupt, shop ping in your stores, sitting next to you in church, volunteering and contributing to fund raisers. I care for stray and abused animals. I spend at least $500 a year contributing to children and needy families. I teach school and I am a union mem ber. Sandi Harvey Macclenny (The writer is a longtime teacher and school librarian and ex-presi dent of the Baker County Education Association teacher union.) Union chief says letter was inaccurate Evil and corrupt statement was attack Is private really better? BCSO has done little Recent comments on this page from readers (they continue this week) about unionized govern ment employees prompt one to ask how we got to this point. As we enter an age of shrinking public revenues amid calls for a drastic reduction in the role of government in our re public, we find ourselves debating over whether governors should be trying to bust up public employ ee unions, or greatly reduce their power to hold taxpayers hostage. Remember that FDR himself, the patron saint of intrusive government, declared that public work ers should never be allowed to form unions. Such a system is fatally flawed, reasoned this liberal icon, because public unions arent really bargaining with management. FDR was fine with private sector unions, except when they threatened national security, and reason able people concur that, despite the corruption en demic at the leadership level, labor unions cleaned up a lot of messes in the private sector. The natural tension at the bargaining table when representatives of the workers meet with manage ment representing industry owners and stockhold ers carries with it a certain grudging honesty. When public employees bargain with agency management who are also paid by public funds, guess whos not at the bargaining table? You guessed it; the taxpayers. So we get to the crux of the current debate. Can we, or should we, tolerate public union contracts re plete with unrealistically early retirement dates, vir tually no fund pay-in by employees compared to the private sector, sweetheart health care plans that also require comparably small pay-ins and work rules that stifle efficiency. The answer is no, we cant and shouldnt. The reason the debate has heated up on both sides is because government at all levels is broke or, in the case of our own county commission, making up the shortfall using reserves that wont be there for long. Public union contracts bloat themselves in good times (and management allows it) with lavishness that cant be tolerated as bad times squeeze the flow of money. weeks Press that Baker County public school teach ers got raises ranging from $300 to $8600 (the lat ter for the most senior). Again, the bargaining between the teacher union and administration was be tween two groups of public em ployees. Granted, many of them are taxpayers, but none have an arms length position outside the school system. The average teacher pay in Bak er County is $42,701. Beginning pay is $34,168 and a teacher with a bachelors degree can max out at $59,000. If they have a masters, add $2625; a spe cialists degree $3676 and a doctorate $4798. Not bad. Some teachers are probably underpaid based on performance; others by contrast are overpaid. But its safe to say (and the unions fiercely resist slot ting by performance) that Baker County teachers as a group are not underpaid. Those of us in private business know very well what the market demands for workers with degrees, and in many cases that floor is being lowered as the economy struggles. You can bet that wont be hap pening to public school teachers. Granted, teachers put up with a lot of stuff many of us wouldnt: the bureaucracy, the political cor rectness, uncontrollable students who cant be dis ciplined, the uncaring parents. But then and this drives many teachers nuts pay level have the summer off, generous holiday breaks and an equally generous smattering of holi days and planning days without the kids? Teachers should keep this in mind when they cal culate where they fit in the labor market. They can argue convincingly the bureaucracy that public edu cation has become is stifling, that many times barri ers are placed in their way when it comes to efficient use of their time. They can argue they are unappre ciated, particularly by parents who contribute little themselves to support the system. They can argue they arent respected by society as front line troops preparing children for life. But they cant argue convincingly they are under paid.

The reduction, set to last 18 months, lowered the tipping fee for waste from Alachua County from $31.80 to $29.25 per ton. Trash from member counties is dumped for $24 a ton. The latest request comes as Alachua County is planning to design and build a materials re covery facility where waste can be brought, sorted through to re move various recyclables includ ing organics, paper, plastic and the like. The goal is to reach a re cycling level of 75 percent. Alachua County already recy cles 44 percent of its waste, said Sally Palmi, the director of that countys solid waste department who presented the request and regularly attends the associa tions monthly meetings. She said the facility is also needed to give Alachua County legal cover to pass ordinances requiring private garbage haul ers drop waste at a county facility rather than dump it elsewhere. Alachua County is contrac tually obligated to dispose of all trash from county facilities at the The tipping fee reduction re sulted from a loss of commercial waste some 1000 tons a week from Alachua Countys trans fer station, and in turn, New Riv er. Emerald Waste Services, a hauler with an exclusive con tract to pick up and dispose of all residential waste in the county, opened its own transfer station shortly after securing the sevenyear contract worth more than $7 million in 2009.

Alachua Countys waste ac counts for about 70 percent of the garbage hauled to the New River making up the remainder. The waste diversion lasted about eight months until a threeway tipping fee reduction deal was reached. It dropped the fee for Alachua County waste, which Mr. ONeal estimated will have cost New River some $500,000 by next month. Emerald Waste Services agreed, at least for the time being, to return its commercial garbage to New River directly, bypassing Alachua Countys transfer station and its tipping fee. Our revenue is back up be cause were getting all of the waste from Alachua County, Mr. ONeal told the board. The tipping fee reduction was limited to 18 months to give Ala chua County enough time to get control of its waste stream and eliminate the possibility of future waste diversions by private haul ers. The Alachua County Commis sion, however, has been reluctant to pass an ordnance mandating such control until its transfer sta tion can be converted into a ma terials recovery facility.

Regardless, New River board members were staunchly op posed to continuing the tip ping fee reduction beyond the 18-month period without some concessions from Alachua Coun ty. It boils down to a lack of ac tion by the board of Alachua County, said Baker County Commissioner Michael Crews. I wanted to see an ordinance to ob Even before Ms. Palmi could begin her presentation of the re quest to maintain the current tip ping fee, board member Wayne Smith of Union County made a motion to deny it. He soon re scinded the motion, however. Rather than continue the tip ping fee reduction after Feb ruary, the New River board gotiating with Alachua County on the terms of a contract extension. The associations current 20-year contract with Alachua County expires December 31, 2018. It was signed in 1997 as a 10-year agreement and extended in 2003.

He represented did his twin brother Justin in a separate trial that end ed in a conviction. An appeals court in Tal lahassee sent both cases back to Baker County for retrial, citing several er rors made by the trial presided over last weeks three-day trial of Jamel, and his twin is set for trial on January 24. The brothers along with two others were ar ing on foot from the scene when a county deputy surprised them. Jamel Wescott argued his arrest was a case of mistaken identity. The brothers have a lengthy criminal history month before the Badcock burglary. This time Mr. Wescott was represented at taxpayer expense by public defender Margaret Stack of Gainesville. Assistant State Attorney Ralph Yazdiya argued the states case in both trials, and in two previous trials of Justin Wescott. conviction in December, 2009. The brothers received similar sentences. They were also originally charged while in county against them. The states case was essentially the same as in the two earlier trials, that Jamel was part of the group that decided to drive out to Macclenny that night and load up a stolen rent al truck with televisions and other merchandise from the store. The entry touched off an alarm that brought deputies to the scene. He maintained that his brother called him to Macclenny to give him a ride back to Jacksonville, and that he was not involved in the break-in. He gave differing versions of events to sheriffs investigators in the hours after his arrest after hid ing with a co-defendant on the roof of the nearby Macclenny Nursing and Rehab. At one point in the earlier trial, Jamel argued the absence of gold caps on his front teeth proved he was not the person in the original booking pho Sentencing is expected later this month or in February.

And thats understand able, said the departments di rector Kerry Dunlavey this week. Those are perfectly valid questions, she said. The health department an nounced nearly one month ago that between 15 and 20 of the or ganizations roughly 90 employ ees, 60 full-time and about 20 part-time or contract positions, would either be laid off or con verted to part-time workers. Ms. Dunlavey said a draft workforce reduction plan was submitted to the Florida De partment of Health [DOH] for review, but no actions had been taken to implement the plan as of January 17. Thats in Tallahassee and sions now, she said. No one has been laid off yet, and for those that are, well do our utmost to gible for unemployment and we expect people will use that. The personnel changes were hastened by further funding re After losing more than $1.3 million between fiscal years 2007-08 and 2010-11, the health department is facing more than $1.2 million in cuts in the current More cuts could be coming next year, Ms. Dunlavey said. The money being used for the ongoing construction work at the health department is some $1.5 million thats restricted to capital The funds will double the amount of space for the dental program, enlarge a waiting room, plus add more parking, a reten tion pond and a generator.

Until last March, it was held in the departments general rev enue trust, and though it was intended to fund capital outlay at some point in the future, the funds were not restricted to such use. Last session DOH and the legislature made the decision that funding for capital outlay general revenue trust fund, she feared the money could be real located by legislators unless it was transferred to a special fund tracts could be executed immedi ately. The transfer took place in March, 2011. It shows the legislature its committed money, explained Ms. Dunlavey. Because of how DOH felt about it, and because there was such a huge shortfall, they were concerned that all this money, from a variety of sources, would be swept away, and the lo cal health departments that have worked so hard to save this mon ey, well, it wouldve gone some where else, and nobody in Baker County wouldve gotten the ben Dental services are in high de mand among health department clients, many of whom are in sured by Medicare or Medicaid.

Its not the best timing, but we didnt have a choice, Ms. Dunlavey said.

Tim Tebow has bowed out of the playoffs. Kicked out would be more appropriate considering the way the Tom Brady-led Patriots manhandled the Broncos. Im sure Tebow is disap pointed, but I bet he tempers his disappoint ment a lot better than some of his fans and fellow players. For a couple of reasons. Tebow is an incredible com petitor. All you have to do is watch his performance as a Ga tor and this season to see that. But he also has an agenda, and this season and the publicity it has garnered has pushed his agenda. His agenda is his faith and football is the medium in which his message is presented. Of course he didnt mind all those people tebowing whether they were sincere or not. It pushed his message. He has to be happy about that. Also, his success this season with the Broncos. John Elway admittedly not Tebows biggest fan, announced after the game that he would be the Broncos starting quarterback going into next season. He also said he was committed to working with Tebow over the off-season to improve his passing. Though I am disappointed the Broncos wont be facing the Baltimore Ravens this weekend instead of the Pats, I cant feel too bad for the guy. this weekend produced. Going into the weekend I was convinced the Saints and Packers would face off in the NFC champion ship. Who wouldnt think that. Well uh San Francisco and the Giants I guess. years team of destiny the way the Packers were last year. And as for the Giants? Tom Cough lin long may the Jaguars kick themselves for getting rid of him is a magician. And Eli Manning, who, as my son Spencer put it astutely is Tony Romo with better luck, could prove to be a better playoff quarterback than his brother. As for the AFC, I wouldnt want to go against Tom Brady. Except Ray Lewis and the Ravens have a way of destroy game plans. I cant wait. The Lady Wildcats basketball team suffered a heartbreaking home loss to West Nassau on the night of January 13. The Lady Warriors came away with a 42-39 win on a last second three pointer.

The Cats controlled the overtime period to take a 5754 win over the Raiders and im prove their record to 7-9. The Wildcats come out red hot, and if not for a few three point ers by the opposition, the game wouldve been a runaway. Never theless, the Wildcats were up by 5 points by the quarters end.

The gold and silver markets have not been this strong for over 30 years said Dennis Kouts Ohio Valley Renery spokesperson. Typically when the U.S. dollar is weak and the economy is at, gold and silver markets soar. Thats good news if you are sitting on a few gold necklaces or an old class ring says Kouts. Starting next Sunday at 9am and through Thursday, the Ohio Valley Renery is setting up a satellite renery right here in Macclenny at the Baker County Ag Center During their 5 day stay, anyone can bring gold, silver, pre1970 coins and turn them into cash on the spot explains Dennis Kouts. Just about everybody has some amount of gold or silver just lying around collecting dust and next week anybody can sell theirs direct to our renery. Typically selling direct to a renery is reserved for larger wholesale customers like jewelry stores, pawn shops and laboratories says Kouts. We are changing how business is done, he explains we want to do business with everybody so we took our business to the streets. Our teams visit various cities around the country hosting 5 day events and allowing the general public to take advantage of our services. The turnout has been overwhelming says Kouts. Usually each day is busier than the previous day. It seems once people come to us and sell something, they are so amazed what an old ring or gold coin is worth, they go home and start digging around for more and telling relatives, friends and neighbors. Its like a feeding frenzy by the third day. People line up with everything from gold jewelry to sterling silver atware sets to old coins. I think during this bad economy everybody can use extra money, but most people say they are taking advantage of selling direct to our renery because of the higher prices we pay. During this special event, anyone is welcome to bring all types of gold, silver and platinum to the renery and turn it in for instant payment. The types of items they will accept include all gold jewelry, gold coins, gold ounces, dental gold, old coins made before 1970 including silver dollars, halves, quarters and dimes, anything marked sterling including atware sets, tea pots, silver bars, silver ounces and all industrial precious metals. What should you expect if you go to the event to sell your gold and/or silver? Just gather up all gold, silver and platinum in any form. If you are not sure if its gold or silver, bring it in and they will test it for free. When you arrive at the event you will be asked to ll out a simple registration card and will be issued a number. Seating will be available. When your number is called you will be escorted to a table where your items will be examined, tested and sorted. This only takes a few minutes, using their expertise and specialized equipment. Items will be counted and/or weighed. The value of the items will be determined based on up to the minute market prices. Live feeds will be available at the event displaying current market prices of all precious metals. If you choose to sell your items, they will be bagged and tagged and you will be escorted to the cashier to collect your payment. Waiting time to sell your items may range from just a few minutes to 1 hour, so bring something to read. If you are the owner of a jewelry store, pawn shop, dentist ofce or a dealer you are encouraged to call ahead to make an appointment with the smelt master to discuss their special dealer programs. They can be reached during Renery hours at (217) 787-7767. Ohio Valley Renery will open for business next Sunday from 9ampm. The event continues every day through next Thursday.
