COVERING BAKER COUNTY SINCE 1929 The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com Florida Arbor Day arrived at Macclenny El ementary the afternoon of January 19 when students lent many a helping hand to plant four river birch trees in the schools backyard while learning about them from county forester Andy Lamborn of the Flori da Forest Service. Two hundred and sixty nine students in all were briefed about the history of Arbor Day and trees them selves how they clean the air, soak up water and nutrients from the soil and con tribute to many, many things we use every day, including tooth brushes and paper products. Groups of four classes at a time gath ered outside their classrooms around a pre-dug hole and potted river birch tree, which Mr. Lam born said was chosen over other varieties because of its hearti ness. It can handle just about anything, he said. The soil at Macclenny Elementary is rich with clay, likely river birch can still thrive there. Its also cold tolerant. National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, nation along with Louisianas, is marked on the third Friday of January. Both holidays are often marked by planting trees. January is an ideal time of year for planting trees in Florida because they are dormant, or not growing, and lose less water through evaporation, both of which gives them a greater ability to withstand the stress of transplanting. plant a river birch tree were the third grade classes of Beverly Rentz, Ms. Haller, Ms. Dorman and Ms. Rambo. After hearing about Florida Arbor Day and the important roles trees play in the environment and our lives, Mr. Lam born removed the river birch, which was purchased at Hagan Ace Hardware in Macclenny, from its pot and placed it into the freshly dug hole. He explained how one should avoid packing down the soil when burying the roots of the tree as fellow ranger Ryan Mason scooped dirt into the hole with a shovel. JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com The Baker Correctional De velopment Corporation, buoyed by consistently high occupancy at the county jail, continues to make money, pay down its debt and have an optimistic outlook for the future. During the final three months of 2011, the Baker County Sheriffs Complex just north of Macclenny on SR 228 housed an average daily inmate population of 443 prisoners, about 60 percent from Immi gration and Customs Enforce ment. BCDCs finance manager, Jeffrey Cox, presented the re tions most recent audit Janu ary 18 to its board of directors. He said the 512-bed jail made more than $1 million during tember 30, 2011. Everything was really clean and turned out really well, Mr. Cox said of the annual audit, noting that the auditor, LBA Certified Public Accountants, P.A. of Jacksonville, made a roughly $10,000 adjustment to Thats pretty minor on a $13 million budget, he said. The corporation ended the 2010-11 fiscal year with $42,493,231 in total assets and $47,783,761 in total li abilities, leading to a total net $1,049,329 less than the previ ous year. The corporations assets include income, accounts re ceivable and capital assets like buildings and land; while the liabilities consist of outstand ing bond debt from the $45 million used to buy land and construct the Baker County Sheriffs Complex, accounts payable and outstanding loans. The facilitys operating rev enue, however, outstripped op erating expenses by $4,650,507 The board did not immedi ately approve the audit report so members would have an opportunity to review it. It ar rive the same day as the panels quarterly meeting. The board did, however, authorize submit ting the report to bondholders along with the caveat it has not been formally approved. Mr. Cox also reviewed for the board the corporations prog ress in meeting the obligations of a bond forbearance agree ment signed roughly one year ago, and paying down other debts. The forbearance agreement gave BCDC the flexibility to make interest-only bond pay ments through February 1, 2013, when about $3.5 million in back principal will come due. Still, during the last year, BCDC has made timely interest payments in addition to princi pal payments that will reduce the interest that would other wise be owed on the principal in forbearance, Mr. Cox said.

Connor McClean, 29, was charged in May with six counts of burglary and theft both felony and misde meanor and a sin gle count of dealing in stolen property. Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered him to a three-year probation term following release, with drug offender sanctions at tached. His co-defendant Andrew Cardenas, 30, was sentenced in November to three years after entering a similar plea. Most of the overnight burglaries in late March took place in subdivi sions off North Boulevard and others on Milton St. in the east city. In another plea that drew a state prison sentence, Judge Ros ier ordered Lewis S. Church ville, 52, of Macclenny to serve 18 months for possession of a firearm by a con victed felon. The state dropped a com panion charge of using a fire arm while impaired. Mr. Churchville, who has a lengthy arrest record, plead ed no contest and will be on a drug offender probation for 18 months following release. He was also ordered to pay a $2000 fine. He was arrested in June, 2011 for shooting a gun into the air near his Tall Pine Rd. resi dence. The arresting officer said Mr. Churchville was drunk at the time. His record includes convic tions for felony driving on a suspended license, drunk driv ing and both misdemeanor and JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com The Baker County Health Department began implement ing its workforce reduction plan last week, eliminating 15 posi tions and cutting the hours of three more. The plan also reclassified four supervisory positions to career service positions due to the loss in staff.

The Chamber [of Commerce] has been very helpful as well as the state hospital, said Ms. Dun lavey. The employees here are very desirable. Theyre great em ployees. Its just hard economic times. Among those affected by the layoffs and reductions were clerks, supervisors, nurses, a computer technician, medical assistant, lab technician and den tist. Every program area took a cut, she said. The departments IT worker was reduced from full-time to part-time. were cut from environmental tor, Terry Graham, as the only employee in that area. the county administration build ing at the courthouse complex to the health department to save some $7222 in overhead costs. senior management supervi sors, which receive 176 hours in annual leave and 104 hours in sick leave each year, were de moted to the career service clas Theyll now have to earn sick and annual leave time and con tribute more to their health in surance coverage. A womens nurse practitioner was reduced from full-time to part-time. A dentist working four days a week will now be available half that time. A dental hygienist who re signed last month will not be re placed. A part-time secretary and home visitation worker with the Healthy Start program were eliminated. Also laid off were a part-time clerk, lab technician, medical assistant, nurse, records clerk, billing clerk and two interview clerks. A dozen of those affected re side in Baker County, Ms. Dun lavey said, with others commut ing from surrounding counties. The health department will also begin outsourcing its labora tory function to Fraser Hospital and CHC Labs, also in Macclen ny, during the coming month. They are more than willing to accept our clients, said Ms. Dunlavey. We did [in-house lab work] for the convenience of the clients, but we always had to sup plement it. And there just isnt any more money to supplement it. The health department in tends to stop, at least temporar ily, accepting new clients with private health insurance as well. New Medicaid clients will still be welcome, Ms. Dunlavey said. Well re-evaluate that in a few months to see how it goes, she added. We have a reduction in staff and we need to make sure the clients we have, that we can continue to serve them well. Theres a time-honored prac tice used by Congress that con veys the sentiment of a major ity of members. Its not legisla tion and its not binding, merely an expression of the will of mem bers. It puts the House and Sen ate on record. Its call a Sense of Congress resolution. Now that the new year is un derway, itd be a good time for the Baker County Commission to consider what well call a Sense of the Commission resolution. The board should go on the re cord soon, a full half-year before 2012-13 budget deliberations be gin, on what it expects from its department chiefs and from the countys five constitutional offi cers. How about this? A ten percent reduction from the 2011-12 bud get approved last fall across the board, every department. The goal is to avoid a debate again this fall over whether and how much the county can dip into a reserve fund that has shrunk from $12 million three years ago to about half that. The county board should take the position, early this year with its Sense of the Commis sion resolution, that the surplus is untouchable. Further, the sur plus will be used for emergencies only, and the fact that various departments and constitutional officers say they cant cut ten percent does not constitute an emergency. And in that vein, the fact that the Gainesville-based judicial cir cuit insists it needs more space and the county should proceed with a new administration build ing off-site is not an emergency either. The judges, no slouches when it comes to equipping themselves with the best that money can buy, should have to wait until elected county board members decide they can afford a new building. The ten percent suggestion is based loosely on the fact that the board raided reserves for $2.2 million last fall to balance a $27.4 million budget, as it had to do the previous year. Indeed, the commission may have to ask for more than ten percent this sum mer, but its a fair start. It will signal that the board is serious about at least that level of reduction. Making it ten percent across the board is the only fair way to insure that all share equally in the effort, though obviously the dollar amounts will differ greatly between departments. For the sheriffs budget, it translates into over $3 million; for the elections supervisor a small fraction of that. For fee-based offices like the clerk and tax collector, the accounting is a bit different but the goal is similar a reduction in spending of ten percent. And the commission should make it clear that the carving will begin at the approved 2011 fig ures, not from proposed 2012-13 spending. Thus a base line is a true base line. Officials need to come to grips with a reality that has hit most of us in private business cuts are painful and the dreaded L word (layoffs) unavoidable. The coun tys two layoffs last fall at budget time were touted as proof the county was serious about spend ing cuts, but they were cursory. Reductions sufficient to avoid dipping into the forbidden sur pluses will mean job cuts no way around it. Commissioners should make it clear they are not going to get involved in the specifics of how departments and officers arrive at the ten percent figure. They know their departments best, and thus the decisions should be theirs and theirs alone. If they pass the Sense of the Commission, board members should be prepared for political fallout. To that, an appropriate response would be: Fine, get someone to run against me so they can get up on the stage with me and explain to voters how go ing further into the hole will be beneficial. Constitutional officers are likewise in a corner. They will cry cuts in services but no one honestly believes that will result. If they cut services to spite the commission, theres an immedi ate political risk to them, and the last thing any of them seeks is an opponent arguing the other side. Theyd do a lot more than ten percent to protect their jobs. As for the sheriff, whose bud get gobbles up $3.6 million of the total $27.4 county outlay, he has appeal rights outside of the commission. He can go over the boards head to the Florida Cabi net all Republicans fighting the same battle on the state level (the sheriffs a Democrat). It shouldnt get to that point. All tax-supported agencies, whether led by a constitutional officer or county department head, realize the commission has a serious responsibility here. And the board has a constituency that is not anxious for further budget balancing using reserves. Nows the time to stake a posi tion, to adopt a Sense of the Com mission and stick to it.

Macclenny Ave.545.1407 | 613.4870Audrey Kennedy, Travis Jay & Barbara Blackshear Dear Editor: Reading the ongoing discussion in The Press I have a question: Is this all about you? We can discuss that the private sector has been devastated since 2008 and that some have lost ev erything. We can discuss that the public sector is now taking hits. We can discuss that as a county, state and country, we are broke. We can discuss that we are leaving our children an unsustainable debt and future that is far less than what we were given. We can discuss What is in it for me? or we can need to honor our commitments, our public em for generations to come. We cannot continue to spend as we have in the past; we see where that has gotten us. Hard deci and cut and changes have to take place. One suggestion I have made to multiple legisla tors is to change the way our schools are designed. We spend approximately $100 million each year in architectural/engineering cost to design schools. My company has built a lot of these schools over the years, some of them are Taj Mahals. We need to stop this practice and it may affect my business bottom line, but it needs to happen. When the issue of privatization comes back up get taken over by a private company or we can be come proactive and form a corporation owned by the employees to take control of it. Why not do the same with the prisons or any agency looking at privatization? Putting destiny in our own hands is what this country was built on. I bet the support would be there from our legisla tors, the employees and the taxpayers. You see the effect of It is all about me. The pri vate sector is devastated and now the public sector is taking the hits. We are broke. We are in this together. I for one will work with whomever I need to se cure the future for our children and future genera I will not stand on one side and take shots at the other side as our county, state and nation are in dire straits. If you would like to work together, please let me know so we can get started. The question is are you willing to make changes in order to ensure the survival of our county, state, and country for future generations? Or is it What is in it for me? Jay Jacobs, Chairman Baker County Tea Party Glen St. Mary JJacobs809@aol.com Dear Editor: This is in response to last weeks anti-public employee union editorial and the antiunion letters published two weeks ago. I retired from the Florida De partment of Corrections with time I was a member of the bar gaining unit, which at that time was PBA [Police Benevolent As sociation]. The editorial stated that of unit because the taxpayers are their employer, but this is far from the truth. It is not the tax payer but the unscrupulous and crooked politicians who are the employer, and the taxpaying middle class employees who are being used as scapegoats during more than 12 years of Republi can misrule in Tallahassee. Now, due to the over $1.5 million that private prison cor porations gave the Republicans, our legislators want to sell out to the highest bidder, putting many people out of work in small counties like Baker. And the legislature wants to do all of this in secret, without any cost analysis or input from FDOC. It is the Teamsters, the bar gaining union for correctional this. The Press and the Tea Par ty are willing to advocate against the interests of a very large seg ment of the local population. I strongly urge my brother the Teamsters. They are only considered evil and corrupt by big money interests, those who want to sell off the state of Flori da to the highest bidder! Billy Marsh Macclenny [Editorial note: the editorial col umn last week never stated that public employees dont need bar gaining units because taxpayers are their employers. The columnist argued that taxpayers, who fund ages awarded to both union and non-union public employees, are missing from the bargaining table.] Dear Editor: I write this in reference to the editorial cartoon in last weeks Press Mr. Hall depicted hot air coming south from the Republi can candidates. I suggest to you that the hot air he referred to is viewed as a promise of spring after over three years of hard winter that has left our economy, jobs, hopes and optimism frozen. It is time for us to stand up for America and stop being dic tated by the Occutards. When Obama was elected, gas was now is over 15 trillion. I dont need to remind any one about the pain at the pump. I dont think any of us can afford four more years. Greg Williams Glen St. Mary Sense of the board is needed on cuts in next years budgets Abandon Whats in it for me Problem is 12 years of misrule by GOP Hot air is a promise of spring Baker County, Fla.: 1861-1961 to bed on Satur day with the last performance before a sold-out crowd. It was a labor of love, and I think that by the end of the run the majority of the cast felt they were in volved in some thing more than a drama produc tion. Going into the show we werent sure how our contribu tion to the countys Sesquicen tennial celebration was going to be received. After all, it was, at its core a history lesson. But from the moment that the lights went up we knew that it was going to be accepted by the audiences. Five minutes into the show people were wiping away tears at the Battle of Olustee. After the show was over, in addition to the usual handshakes and congratulations, people wanted to talk. They wanted to talk about stories that were in the show and stories that had been left out. I learned a lot from putting it together and I also learned a lot from listening to audience mem bers after the show. The general consensus seemed to be that it was a story that needed to be told. Its the best way to learn his tory, one audience member told us. You get to see it happening. We had tried very hard to get it right. We relied on articles from the historical society, pub lished material by Gene Barber and others, along with personal narratives. However, things had to be dramatized and it was those dra matizations that seemed to affect people the most. Soldiers dying on the battle field of Olus tee, heroic Red Cross nurses during the Yel low Fever epi demic of 1888 and even a couple they could make some money off of moonshine during the prohibi tion era seemed to touch a chord with people. Word of mouth seemed to grow and a big crowd on open ing night turned into one of the biggest wed ever had on Friday. We ran out of chairs and had only standing room by curtain time. Time and again we heard the same refrain. I thought I knew a lot about the history of our coun ty. But I learned things tonight that I never knew. A lot of folks want a sequel. Some wanted us to tell stories that we had missed. Others want ed us to move forward in histo ry from the place we stopped in 1961 to today. Ill have to think about that. Through it all it just seemed to awaken something in people. Even things that we had added loween story of Raw Head and Bloody Bones, tugged at some memories. I hadnt heard that story in 60 years, said Faye Davis. Im going to tell it to my grandchil dren. We had several touching mo ments where people whose sto ries are told in the production were in the audience. Particularly poignant for us was Clemmytee Daniels. Mrs. Daniels is a well-known black educator in the county. During the 1940s she refused to accept that education for black students ended with the 8th grade. As an 11-year-old, every day she rode the Greyhound bus to Lake City and walked over a mile to Richardson High School. nally taught at Central Elemen tary, Sanderson Elementary and Westside Elementary. Her story is one of courage and determina tion and it was an honor to tell her story and to recognize her at our production. I hope that people learned a lot about the history of our coun ty by watching the production. We certainly did. Thanks to everyone who spent so much time putting the pro duction together and to those folks who came to the show and shared their stories with us. It was a special moment for all of us in the cast and crew. We made a DVD of the pro duction during the rehearsal pro cess and it sold like hotcakes. We had it ready for sale on the sec ond weekend of the run and sold out of 60 we had made. DVDs of Baker County, Fla.: 1861-1961 are available by calling BCHS at 259-6286. MY SIDE OF THE MATTER ROBERT GERARD paid $1,030,000 in principal in 2011 with another principal pay ment of $855,000 expected by the end of this month. Mr. Cox said that payment would leave a $420,000 balance on the $1,185,000 in 2012 princi pal under forbearance. Well make that payment in August, he said of the balance, adding that BCDC is on track to meet the forbearance obliga tions, which include pledging $35,000 monthly to a bond re serve fund. The bond reserve fund should be maintained at $3,656,000, but its balance as of January 10 was $1,057,960. Mr. Cox project ed the reserve fund to meet that threshold in May 2018, or sooner if monthly payments increase. The reserves were depleted in the two years after the facility began operations in the summer of 2009, before Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees started arriving in larger num bers. Notwithstanding the forbear ance agreement, BCDCs month ly bond obligations principal payments, interest payments and bond reserve fund payments total about $425,000. Weve been doing that for the last 12 to 14 months, Mr. Cox said. ed that BCDCs net income for the 2011-12 could top $1.6 mil lion should current trends con tinue. Board members voiced once again their appreciation to the facilitys healthcare contractor, Armor Correctional Health Ser vices, for not charging BCDC interest on late payments to the company. Mr. Cox said Armor is still owed about $745,000. Other outstanding debts to Ajax Building Corporation, which built the complex, First National Bank of Tom Bean and the Bak er County Commission, which loaned BCDC funds for utility upgrades at the facility, and two companies through which prop erty, vehicle and liability insur as of December 31, 2011. felony drug charges.

Then it was time to take vol unteers. Hands shot up as Mr. Lambo rn selected two youths at a time to drench the soil with larger watering cans. Once the water began pooling around the newly planted tree, the eager students, who inched closer and closer to the tree as the session pro gressed, were asked to get their hands dirty spreading mulch. With the planting complete, the third graders thanked Mr. Lamborn, Mr. Mason, master gardener Mac McDaniel and Baker County Extension Service Horticulture agent Alicia Lambo rn for their visit before stomping off their feet and heading into the media center nearby. Florida sponsored extension ser vice has joined the Florida Forest Service, which paid for the new plantings, for four years now, planting 39 trees at Macclenny Elementary, Keller Intermediate School and the PreK-Kindergar ten Center. They will one day provide shade for playgrounds and help schools save on energy costs, Ms. Lamborn said. The program itself teaches students about the importance of trees and their many uses by humans and wild life, including the use of plant parts to make products that we all use each day. Some tips for tree planting and care in Florida: portant in Florida for trees and speeds up their establishment in the environment at the right watering frequency and quan transplanted trees more than large volumes of water infre quently applied. months to become established.

Instead, monitor the soil for changes in moisture lev few months after planting, do not skip an irrigation because of rainfall, unless it measures over 1 inch. Essentially, the root balls of newly planted trees must not be allowed to dry out, nor should they be saturated. For more information about planting and watering trees, call Ms. Lamborn at 259-3520.

The associations board of di rectors received the audit results at their monthly meeting Janu ary 12 from Laura Douglas of DDF CPA Group in Starke. The audit, which covered the fiscal year prior to September some $30.3 million in net assets, of which about $10.1 million is unrestricted. Ms. Douglas said net assets grew by $2.2 million during the year, mostly due to lower costs from less waste being dumped at the facility and ongoing construc sociations under-funding of fu ture closure and long-term mon itoring costs, which are projected at nearly $13 million. executive director, said the as sociation has set aside about 60 percent of those costs, but if the diately, member counties would shoulder the remaining 40 per cent. The director also warned the board that the association needs to start saving funds to pay for construction of the facilitys next cell. The alternative, he said, would be to borrow an estimat ed $6.4 million, which the asso ciation has avoided doing in the past. There were two instances of noncompliance with Florida Statutes included in the auditors report one regarding the waiv ing of tipping fees and another concerning how the association disperses dividends to member counties, which include Baker, The three counties own and ty is represented by two county commissioners on the associa tions board of directors. Ms. Douglas said state law prohibits tipping fee waivers un organization that recycles at least 50 percent of its waste and dis tributes donated goods. The landfill board routinely waives tipping fees for homes de disasters. The inter-local agreement be tween the member counties also does not specify how dividend payments are determined or distributed, which is contrary to state law, she said. Currently, the association budgets an annual amount for dividends, splits the amount equally three ways and disburses the portions in 12 monthly pay ments. Similarly, Ms. Douglas said, the inter-local agreement fails to address how liabilities, like un funded future monitoring costs, would be divided among the member counties after closure. Today, investments set aside for such costs fall $3.8 mil lion short of the projected need. Should the unfunded amount be divided as assets are to be di vided per the agreement, based on the percentage of waste from each member county, Baker County would face a liability of about $1.4 million. Both issues have been noted in previous audits since 2009. Ms. Douglas said instances of noncompliance repeated in three consecutive annual audits must be reported to the state. She told the board to expect a letter from regulators. In other business the evening: contract with SP Recycling of Gainesville, which collects recy clables from 36 collection sites in the member counties, for three years.

JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com The next time youre at the grocery store consider this: what product you buy can bring cash directly to Baker County schools. Kathy Richardson, a teachers aide at Baker County Middle School, has spearheaded an ef fort there since 2007 to collect box top coupons from certain products and redeem them for checks from manufac turers through Box Tops for Education. Last month, the middle school re ceived a check for $1273 from the program and Westside Elementary earned some $1500. The programs website, www. boxtops4education.com, boasts that $59 million was distributed nationwide in 2011. Its like turning trash into cash, said Ms. Richardson. Each box top coupon, avail able on hundreds of products from sandwich bags and paper plies, is worth 10 cents. The prod ucts may be purchased in a store or online for virtual box tops. General Mills started it, but its grown to other brands, said Ms. Richardson. Anyone can participate by sending box top coupons to the program coordinators, like Ms. Richardson, at local schools. They can be contacted by e-mail through the programs website after registering. The middle school, Keller In termediate, Macclenny Elemen tary, Westside Elementary and the PreK-Kindergarten Center all have coordinators. Each school has earned more than $1000 in the 2011-12 school year, accord ing to the website. The website also features printable coupons for specific products and sweepstakes for schools to win as many as 250,000 bo nus box tops, which would mean $25,000 for a local school. Checks are distributed twice a year, but box tops can be collect ed year round. The next check distribution, for coupons submitted between October 31 and February 28, will occur in the spring. Those submitted between March 1 and October 30 will be counted for a payment next December. Ms. Richardson said the middle schools goal is to reach $2000 for the current cycle. A lot of it has been just a few students supporting it who get really excited about it, she said. But if we get more students in volved, it can be really big. Most recently the box tops program funded a banner touting the middles school status as an A-rated school and items for the schools Positive Behavior Sup port program, which is used to reward students display ing good behavior. Another program similar to Box Tops 4 Education is Camp bells Labels for Edu cation. The labels pro Codes, from about 50 products to earn points. The points can then be used to shop for academ ic, art and athletics merchandise online. The merchandise cata log includes supplies like globes, paint brushes, books and basket balls. Frozen chicken producer Ty son has yet another program, Project A+, in which the compa nys labels may be redeemed for schools. More information about the above education support pro grams can be found at the fol lowing websites boxtops4edu cation.com, labelsforeducation. com and projectaplus.tyson.com or by calling a local school. JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com Both of Baker Countys state legislators are up for re-election this fall and each amassed thousands of dollars in cam paign contribu tions last year, some from in terests tied to bills theyve filed this ses sion. Florida House Repre sentative Janet Adkins (R-Fer nandina Beach) is a charter school advo bill last month to funnel a larg er share of local and state education funding to charter schools. Ms. Adkins serves on the K-12 Education Appropriations Sub committee and received some $4425 in campaign contribu tions in 2011 from organizations or people involved in education, $2000 of which came from or ganizations linked to the charter school movement, state records show. Those contributions made up only about 5.5 percent of the $80,863 in campaign contribu tions Ms. Adkins raised last year. Still, the representative has pro posed a bill to correct many in equities relating to school fund ing for public charter schools in Florida, according to a Decem ber 8 press release from Ms. Ad kins about HB 903. On average, the release states, public charter schools get only 65 percent of the per student funding that traditional pub lic schools receive. It goes on to say that federal funding towards charter school students is not distributed in a timely manner or, at times, at all. The proposed law would require school boards to pass the funding to charter schools within 60 days. Among Ms. Adkins other top contributors were consultants, $8500; manufacturers, $4450; political action committees in cluding the Baker County Re publican Committee, $3750; and healthcare-related groups and individuals, $3750. Florida Senator Charlie Deans (R-Inverness) largest contributors in 2011 were lob byists and political action com mittees, which gave $18,850; attorneys, $10,874; healthcarerelated groups, $5,500; and property development or con struction related groups, $5500. But like Ms. Adkins, the sena tor also accepted contributions from interests that would be im this session. For instance, one bill pro posed by Mr. Dean would exempt commercial landscape fertilizer applicators from local govern ment ordinances and establish cess through the Florida Depart ment of Agriculture and Con sumer Services instead. Another of Mr. Deans bills would repeal a state law requir ing regular septic tank inspec tions and give local governments with first magnitude springs the authority to implement their own evaluation programs pro lines. Local gov ernments with such springs are not required to implement such a program, however. State records show agricul tural groups, including a fer tilizer company, donated $2000 to Mr. Deans re-election cam paign last year. A political ac tion committee representing the septic tank industry donated $500 as well. The senator, who chairs the Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, gar nered $105,428 worth of contri butions in all last year.

FREE$175 VALUEMouthguard MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Eighteen homeowners in neighborhoods throughout Macclenny met a January 20 deadline for applications seeking a slice of a $700,000 fed eral grant pie targeting substandard housing in need of rehabilitation. If applicants meet ownership and income guidelines they could qual ify for funding assistance to bring their homes into compliance with cur rent building codes and make them safer and healthier living environ ments. Or, if the extent and expense of repairs would be too great, their present home could be demolished and replaced with a new one. The Housing Assistance Plan, funded by a Community Development Block Grant the city received last year, could be completed some time in 2013, the Lake City-based consultant hired to administer the program said this week. ing to do it in a year, said Spencer Nabors, of In Touch Consulting Group Inc., on January 23. Not only is Mr. Nabors in charge of screening all homeowner appli cants to determine their eligibility, but he is also responsible for doing background checks on 15 general contractors that have applied to par ticipate in the program. I hope to start some of the construction in April, he said. Once we bid out a job I anticipate a 45to 90-day construction time frame per project. But nothing can start until after the Macclenny City Commission approves a list of applicants that have met eligibility requirements. Mr. Nabors said he hopes to complete his screening and submit his recommenda tions to commissioners at the March 13 board meeting. Mr. Nabors, who administered a simi lar housing assistance program in Baker County a few years ago, has a lot of work to do to prepare for that meeting. The main purpose is to make sure the applicants qualify for (grant) money, he said, adding that he also is responsible for inspecting each residence to determine what upgrades are needed. They (owners) will have their wish list, he said. But this is rehabilitation not a remodel. If it is more economically feasible to demolish a structure and replace it with a new one, even if it means replacing a dilapidated mobile home with a conventionally-built structure, that is what he will recommend to Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough said he and the city build as long as theyve got enough room on their lot, Mr. Yarborough said. Anytime that theres enough grant money to swap them out with a regular home it would be a great thing to do, he said. Something applicants must realize, however, is that after their homes have been substantially rehabilitated, or replaced, they could face a But it should be no surprise to them, Mr. Nabors said. Well be putting on homeowner workshops for all of them telling them what they can expect. Any tax increase, however, likely will be offset, or negated, by lower utility bills as a result of living in a structure built with the most energyThe savings off their electric bills would probably pay their taxes, Mr. Yarborough said. The scope of rehabilitation assistance includes the following: Star rated. mum seer rating of at least 14. cupants. placement of dilapidated or malfunctioning stoves or refrigerators and removal of lead-based paint. to provide bathroom or laundry facilities. While 18 homes are on the list of potential candidates for rehabilita tion, 15 building contractors have applied to participate in the program. Mr. Yarborough said that was no surprise to him. With the economy like it is there would probably be more if we could probably will try to hold their costs down as low as possible to get the work. Everybodys cutting it as tight as they can. Well get more bang for our bucks, he said. Another advantage to having a large number of contractors involved, Mr. Yarborough said, is there shouldnt be any delays caused by one contractor having too much repair work to do. The Housing Assistance Plan, which received the approval of the states Department of Economic Opportunity, applies only to ownerconsideration. Applicants living in block, wood frame or mobile homes will be ranked equally and very low income households will be ranked higher than low-to-moderate income households. Those with an elderly head or more members with at least one child under 12 will receive preferen tial consideration. Applicants must have clear title to the property, or be up to date with their mortgage payments. They were also required to list all sources of income and not be delinquent in their utility, taxes or garbage collec tion bills. The housing assistance money will be considered a deferred pay ment loan, but will not have to be repaid if the owners reside in their homes for at least seven years following the upgrades. Properties targeted for improvement are scattered inside city limits. They include homes on Martin Luther King Drive, Michigan Avenue, Railroad Avenue, South Boulevard, Quail Lane and 2nd, 6th, 9th, Col lege, Linda, Grisholm, Ivy, Eloise and Joan streets.

MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF A few weeks after classroom teachers and other unionized school district employees got their pay raises, school adminis trators and another group of nonunion workers now have theirs. The school board approved the latest round of 2011-12 sala ries, which included annual step increases and one-time bonuses for all school administrators and board meeting held at Sanderson Congregational Holiness Church. The bonuses for administra tors, termed educational lead ers in district parlance, and for as those that were approved on January 3 for teachers and union workers in non-instructional po sitions. In addition to their automatic annual step increase, administra tors will be paid a one-time bonus of $100 for those on steps 0-24, and a $700 one-time payment for those on step 25 who are no lon ger eligible for the annual raise. include principals secretaries granted a $100 bonus for those who receive a step increase and a $500 one-time payment for oth erswho have topped out on the pay scale and are ineligible for another step increase. Marcelle Richardson, execu tive director for support services, said a couple of dozen employees which includes all school princi pals, assistant principals and dis on a 25-step pay schedule. Their salaries depend, as they do teachers, on the highest aca demic degree they have earned. For example, those with a bach elors degree are paid $41,626 the Those with a doctorate at year one earn $47,471, which increas es to $77,723 25 years later. The confidential employee class, Mrs. Richardson said, con sists of about 20 workers and includes the superintendents tation departments. Some are on an 18-step plan and others are on an 11-step plan, she said. For example, the school bus garage manager is on an 11-step salary schedule, which begins at $48,515 a year. The salary in creases to $55,877 at step 11. The executive secretary to the superintendent is on an 18-step plan ranging from $35,987 the All other secretaries also are on an 18-step plan, but the salaries are different depending upon how much training and experi ence each one has and whether they work 240 or 261 days a year.

Some school employees who maintain accounting records also handle cash collections, co-sign checks and reconcile bank state ment balances to the accounting records, the report stated. Con sequently, the possibility exists that unintentional errors or ir regularities could exist and not be promptly detected. Auditors recommended strengthening internal control over cash transactions by sepa rating duties among employees. While we acknowledge that personnel may not always be available to permit such a sepa ration of employee duties and responsibilities, we think it is im portant that you are made aware of this condition, the auditors wrote. We noted that some principals are reviewing bank reconciliations in order to help compensate for the lack of segre gation of duties. The report went on to state that principals are encouraged to require that the bank statements be routed to them unopened and that they examine the cancelled checks (or check copies) for alter ations or unusual payees.

ursday, January 26, 2012 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, January 26, 2012 BOB GERARD | STAFF I was about to step on stage in my seersucker suit and I had to stop for a second. I thought, Im about to play my grandfather. Denny Wells, who plays City Manager Frank Wells in the Bak er County High drama and Baker County Community Theatre pro duction of Baker County, Fla.: 1861-1961 was one of several performers with personal con nections to the people in the play. When he was asked to portray his grandfather, who had a big hand in helping stop moonshin ing in Baker County, he paused for a moment before saying, You cant imagine what an honor this is. He then went out and bought a seersucker suit, which was his grandfathers signature apparel. For Mr. Wells, playing the role has been like channeling his grandfather. The two were ex tremely close and he remembers seeing his grandfather in the selfsame suit. Others also remember it fondly. Wells was leaning against the front of the stage after the sold out performance January 13 and a passing audience member com mented, I saw your grandfather dressed like that many a day. Shelly Neri had a similar expe rience playing her grandmother, Fay Milton. When she donned a short brunette wig to play the role she was amazed by what looked back at her in the mirror. I never thought I looked at all like my grandmother until I put on that wig, she said. Her aunt, Fay Milton Sinclair, agreed. Watching her on stage was the her. But there she was, the aunt said. Ms. Neri, who shares the role with Sara Beth Gerard, also added personal touches to the performance. My grandmother would always put her hand on her chest for emphasis, she said. Not only did the gesture enter Neris performance but is also used by Ms. Gerard in her per formance to give a more realistic representation of the Fay Milton. Actors Harper and Julia Ar chambault have even more con nections to the characters in the play. Both of the girls greatgrandparents and their uncle are featured in the show. The Ar chambault sisters have connec tions to both the Barber and the Thrift families. Mother Tracy Barber Archam bault and her father Joe Barber contributed all sorts of useful in formation about the characters in the show. One of the most exciting scenes in the show chronicles how Deputy Rufe Thrift attempt ed to prevent a murder during the Baxter Rebellion of 1904 and was killed in the process. When his family came to take his body back to Macclenny the next day, said Tracy Archam bault, his body was shot full of so many holes that they had to take him home in two parts. That piece of family trivia made it into the show almost word for word during the rehearsal pro cess. Their other great-grandpar ent, Lizzie Barber, is featured in the Battle of Olustee sequence. High school freshman Mal lory Chaunceys grandfather was Sheriff Ed Yarbrough, who is prominent in the second act. She corrected the spelling of his last name in the program and also added some insight into why he was so bound and determined to see moonshine ended in Baker County. A lot of high school boys would run shine on the week ends, said Ms. Chauncey. One weekend a high school football star was killed in a car crash while carrying shine. My grandma said that my papa said, We cant have any more children killed running moonshine. Thats one of the reasons they all pushed so hard. Other actors have more dis tant connections. Young Mia Fish is related to Sheriff Joe New mans, whose picture is promi nently displayed in the slide show. Jeff Rowes aunt Edith Rowe is mentioned in a segment and Dylan and Sara Gerard are related to Beverage Agent Car son Norman, who Dylan Gerard plays in the show. Keller Intermediate Schools Teacher of the Year says her late fathers illiteracy was one of several factors that sent her on the path of a self-described life-long learner. Carylon (Cary) Padgett has yet another unique perspective on education she entered the teaching field from the business world. For 25 years after she Tampa, Ms. Padgett was in the apartment and prop erty management industry, and often found herself in a teaching role there as well. I am a product of change through education, the honoree wrote recently in an essay on her teach ing philosophy. I was the seventh child of an illiter ate father and a mother who finished 5th grade. I was the first [in the family] to graduate from high school and the only one to acquire a college educa tion. In third grade, I made a vow that I would change my backwoods dialect, not knowing that this would lead to a life-long journey of learning and change my world. Ms. Padgetts parents had deep north Florida roots her father from a Clay County family and in the Baxter area for part of her childhood, then moved to Tampa. Since her return to Baker County, Cary Padgett has gone right back to her childhood milieu. She lives on Moccasin Circle in Baxter where she has two horses and indulges in her favorite past time riding on the fringe of the great Okefenokee and in the ref uge area. Since joining the school system six years ago, she has carved out a position as an ESE support facilita tor, which translates to working with the special ed students in eight classrooms, concentrating in small groups on math and reading. The position is an off-shoot of the states program for mainstreaming special ed children into regular classrooms and giving them concentrated doses of instruction in those critical areas. Single, Cary Padgett involves herself with more than 30 nephews and nieces, other family members and her church. Her first two years of college before tains a deep religious faith. I love people. When I go to Walmart or a rodeo, I love it when kids and their parents come up to me the kids looking for a hug, she says. I tell my students you can be successful, you can do it. Its im portant to me that Im a stable role model; I have a strict code of conduct. Ms. Padgett is one of six nominees for the coun ty-wide Teacher of the Year title. Others are Vivian Lucas at PreK, Cheryl Rhoden at Westside, Cleanor Cumpston at Macclenny, Glenda Scallan at BCMS and Kelley Norman at the high school.

ursday, January 26, 2012 T B C P Page 11 Page 10 JANUARY 26, 2012 MIKE DAVIS, P h D. BAKER COUNTY EXTENSION SERVICE DIRECTOR If someone asked you to de scribe a norovirus, could you? If not, you are not alone. If you said that noroviruses are a lead stomach and intestines (gastro enteritis), then youd be on the right track. In fact, noroviruses cause over 20 million cases of illness each year and are responsible for over half of food-borne illness out breaks. As recently as last November, there was a norovirus scare at a school in Clay County. These vi ruses cause symptoms which many refer to as the stomach dehydration and stomach pain. treatment for an infected person and the illness usually subsides in one to two days. Outbreaks of this virus can occur during any time of the year, but are most prevalent during the time between November and April, when about 80 percent of out breaks occur. Norovirus outbreaks are typi cally seen in places where many people are together and may involve eating or drinking con taminated foods and beverages. Outbreaks have been linked to restaurants, nursing homes, hos pitals, schools and cruise ships. Persons who have had a norovi rus infection but are feeling bet ter can still spread the virus for up to two weeks. Since noroviruses are spread by the fecal-oral route, there are steps that you can take to de crease your chances of contract ing this virus: warm water frequently, especial ly when preparing food or after making a trip to the bathroom. before eating eating age in a sanitary manner. It is also important that pro fessional food handlers are not allowed to handle food for at least 2 to 3 days after symptoms have subsided from gastroenteritis.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Dozens cash in yesterday with gold and silver jewelry, coins and guitars. An estimated $350,000 in Macclenny.SILVER AND GOLD COIN PRICES UP DURING POOR ECONOMY.By Ken McIntosh STAFF WRITER Got Coin? It might be just the time to cash in. This week, starting Sunday and continuing through Thursday, the International Collectors Association in conjunction with the Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Renery will be purchasing all types of silver and gold coins direct from the public. All types are welcome and the event is free. Collectors will be on hand to identify and sort your coins. Then the quality or grade will be determined. The better the grade the more they are worth, according to collectors I talked to. With the silver and gold markets high, prices of older coins are too. Any coins minted before 1965 in the U.S. are 90% silver, except nickels and pennies. The coins worth is determined by the rarity and the grade. Old silver dollars are worth a great premium right now, even well worn heavily circulated ones are bringing good premiums. Franklin and Kennedy half dollars, Washington quarters, Mercury and Roosevelt dimes are all worth many times the face value. While older types like Seated Liberty, Standing Liberties, and Barber coins are worth even more. Gold coins are really worth a lot right now, according to Brian Eades of the International Collectors Association. This country didnt start minting coins until 1792 says Eades. He explained, Before that, people would trade goods using gold dust and nuggets. Some shop keepers would take more gold than needed to pay for items purchased. There was no uniform system of making change. The government opened the rst mints and began distributing the coins in 1792. By the beginning of the 19th century, coins and paper currency were wide spread and our monetary system was here to stay. In 1933 Roosevelt required all banking institutions to turn in all gold coins. Once all banks turned in this gold, the president raised the gold standard from $20.00 per ounce to $33.00 per ounce. This was his way of stimulating the economy during the great depression. However, gold coins were never redistributed after the recall. But not all gold coins were turned in. Many folks during that time didnt completely trust the government and chose to keep their gold said Eades. These gold coins are sought after by collectors today and bring many times the face value. Any gold coins with the mint marks of CC, D or O will bring nice premiums. Collectors at the event will be glad to show you where to look. Other types of coins will also be purchased including foreign coins, Indian cents, two cent pieces, half dimes, three cent pieces and buffalo nickels to name a few. Collectors warn people against trying to clean their coins, as signicant damage can be done and the coins value lessened. By David Morgan STAFF WRITERA renery spokesperson for the event said he expects to pay local residents in excess of $350,000 this week for their Gold and Silver Jewelry, Old Coins, Sterling Silverware and Rare Collectibles! Examples of transactions this week include: A lady cleaned out her jewelry box and brought in a few pieces she didnt wear any longer such as a herringbone necklace, mismatched earrings and a class ring and left with $712.47 A gentleman brought in a Sterling Silverware set he inherited from his parents and walked out with $1,382 Young couple brought in a Gibson Guitar, some Costume Jewelry and a few pocket watches and left with a check for $4,637! With the rough economic times were in, its cool that an event like this would come to our area and allow folks to cash in their items. They were professional and made the whole process simple and stress free!
