COVERING BAKER COUNTY SINCE 1929 The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings A transient convicted by a jury last month for failure to comply with sex offender notification requirements was sentenced to five years in prison on March 1. Richard Heighton, 56, was living in the Osceola National Forest when he was re-arrested on Valentines Day in 2011 and has been in county jail ever since. Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier gave him credit for 382 days already served. The six-member jury agreed that Mr. Heighton, who was convicted as a sex offender in Tennessee in 1984, left county jail here in July, 2010 and failed to obtain a Florida identification card within 48 hours. He also failed to report to law enforce ment on his next birthday and six months after that, as required by Florida statute. Mr. Heighton was first arrested in Baker County in March, 2010 when he was found living in the forest and an officer of the US Forest Service learned of his status as a sex offender. The state dropped that charge and released him four months later. He re turned to the forest and at one point told a court clerk in Columbia County he in tended to move to Mexico. Authorities were aware he remained in the forest but were unable to find him until another officer made contact with him north of Ocean Pond. The same day as Mr. Heighton was sen tenced, Judge Rosier ordered Justin Sands, 25, of Sanderson back to prison for three years after he admitted to violating probation. Mr. Sands, a convicted drug traf ficker, was on a ten-year drug of fender probation following release from prison in September of last year. He was arrested a month later in Lake City for possession of a fire arm by a convicted felon. The case that sent the defendant to prison initially stemmed from sales to confidential sources of both prescription pills and marijuana in both Taylor and Macclenny. The amount of drugs involved merited the trafficking charge, and Mr. Sands had a prior record for drug and paraphernalia possession, disorderly intoxication and oth er offenses.

For entertainment during until 1 pm, there was music by the Bluegrass Breeze and clog ging demonstrations by a local 4-H group. indication the weekly market should be a big hit this year, said Darryl Register, co-chair of the event and director of the Baker County Chamber of Commerce. py, Mr. Register said. Wed love to have more vendors. But we had seven, and during the fall run we never had more than four. The market began in 2010. Organizers schedule one event during the spring season and another, shorter one, during the fall leading up to Thanksgiving. ket this year included two ven dors selling so-called cottage food products, which the state now allows to be sold to the public without a license, in cluding home made breads, cakes, cookies, candies, jams, jellies and fruit pies. Organizers had hoped that the introduction of cottage food vendors to the market might stimulate sales and help the event grow. Mr. Register said it appears to have been a factor in the successful opening day. Spring-like weather, complete with high March winds, ushered in this years edition of the Baker County Farmers Market in north Macclenny. The crowd was steady and organizers are looking for increased turnout as the Saturday event stretches toward summer months. Joy Ruhe (above) with her macaw Capt.

Sunny debut for market See page 2 JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR email@example.com The Baker County Commis sions proposed special assess ment for emergency medical services is indeed legal under state law, a recent opinion from Florida Attorney General Pam The county already levies special assessments on prop erties outside of the City of Macclenny for garbage and fire protection services, but the legality of a proposed spe cial assessment for emergency medial services, or EMS, was questioned late last year by Macclennys attorney Frank Maloney. He argued that a 2002 Flor ida Supreme Court ruling held special assessments for EMS invalid because they benefit people rather than property, which is a fundamental re quirement of special assess ments. seek the attorney general opin ion on the issue, which arrived February 28. The opinion supports Mr. Maloneys interpretation of 2002 high court ruling that special assessments for EMS do the properties being assessed and therefore function like tra ditional property taxes instead. But the opinion counters that a special assessment for EMS in Baker County is legal because theres a state law that says special assessments for EMS imposed by certain coun ties shall be construed to be ... a tax authorized by general law, like traditional property taxes, also known as ad valor em taxes. ties as those within a rural area of economic concern as desig nated by the governor, those with less than 75,000 people and levying less than 10 mills of ad valorem tax, or those that passed an ordinance authoriz ing EMS assessments prior to January 1, 2002. Counties must meet only one of these three require ments to qualify under the law and Baker County lies within a rural area of economic concern.

Dear Editor: When it comes to the excessive actions taken by the county to appease the First Baptist Church of Glen Saint Mary in regards to George Taber Blvd., overboard is probably not even close to de the crosswalk in front of the church. this road to accommodate one crosswalk on a single lane road for a private entity county funded, no doubt. Maybe the board should count how many there are in front of any of our Baker County schools and compare. Theyll be hard pressed to hit double digits at any of the county schools. Reducing the speed limit to 25 mph was also an earlier conces sion made for their comfort, even though, by the churchs own ad mission, there hasnt been an incident there in the history of the church. Now its been lowered to 15 mph. And what about the addition of the only elevated crosswalk in Baker County on a county thoroughfare. This oversized speed bump, with a crosswalk on top, is supposed to keep the people crossing safe, however by the time this device reminds a driver of the cross walk, theyll already be on top of the people using the crosswalk, because the speed bump is the crosswalk. you pass is so far away from the crosswalk that vehicles have more than ample time to get back up to the speed limit by the time the crosswalk is reached, making it ineffective and useless. Then, the stop sign after you have already passed through the Looking at the time the church petitioned to close the road and have it closed until the recent additions, it has the appearance of purposeful intent to inconvenience Baker County residents who uti lize that road to the point that they start using other routes. This would lower the vehicle count and increase the churchs chances of obtaining a favorable result the next time it petitions the board to close George Taber Blvd. It also gives the appearance that the First Baptist Church of Glen St. Mary is being given preferential treatment that would not nor mally be afforded to other private entities in similar situations. I would hope that this is not the case, and that the issue can be re crossing the street. The spinning stop sign just before the crosswalk, used only during church functions, was an excellent idea, and would ing themselves in concerning this issue. This is an election year, and ber of voters either for or against a candidate depending on their level of support, but in this particular case, whats being done for the church, and against the taxpaying members of this community that utilize George Taber Blvd. is so blatantly obvious, and morally wrong, that something needs to be done. Contact the members of the Baker County Board of Commis sioners and let them know that this favoritism and excessive use of county funds and resources for a private entity is not acceptable, and needs to be corrected before it goes any further. After all, were voters, too. Don Burkhardt Glen St. Mary Dear Editor: Last Thursday my daugh ter rented a car in Gainesville to pick me up so we could take care of some business in Lake City. Hoping to save money on gas and try out our presidents energy solution, she rented a Nissan Leaf, the all-electric car. By the time she drove it to Macclenny, there was four miles traveling distance left on the battery. She plugged it in to charge up so we could go on to Lake City. After three hours, the trav eling distance was only regis tering nine miles. By this time it was after 2 pm, so she called the rental agency and they ar ranged to have another car (gas powered this time) deliv ered from Jacksonville. It was after 4 pm when the tow truck arrived. Needless to say, we didnt make it to Lake City that day. We learned the Leaf has to charge 24 hours to go 100 miles. Can you imagine taking three days to get to At lanta? Why on earth would anyone want an electric car? America has access to plen ty of fuel, yet we are forced to buy from foreign countries at exorbitant prices. President Obama says he wants a Chevy Volt, another electric car, but the Secret Service wont allow Id gladly donate money toward getting him one if he of his leadership. Eva Redmon Macclenny Overboard eort to appease church Electric car was a farce Thanks for road work Dear Editor: My mother and I would like to thank our county commis sioner for the road work done to Violet Lane and Faye Road. Thanks also to the men who did the physical work on the road. They did a great job! Annie Mae and Diane Barton Macclenny Driving around the Macclenny area late last week, youd likely come across people soliciting cash for an organization billing it self as the Disabled Veterans Foundation. Clad in camouflage fatigues and handing out miniature American flags, motorists got the impression they were veterans helping other vets with food, clothing, housing and work. Thats what it said on those sandwich signs posted at col lection points. The newspaper (and city hall) fielded numerous telephone in quiries as to just who these people were. Are they legit, callers wanted to know. We posted on the newspapers Facebook page an article indicat ing the Plantation-based non-profit organization may not be what its cracked up to be. The gist: its un clear how much of what it collects actually ends up in the pockets of down-and-out veterans. Yours truly spoke with one of the collectors (a nice gentleman), who made the startling revelation that until recently he had been homeless. He was part of the Disabled Veterans Foundation team moving from city to city collecting money. He was being paid, and the non-profit was footing travel expenses for the group. He seemed truly grateful for the opportu nity. According to a Miami television station, this and other similar organizations that tug at the heart strings of Americans concerned about the fate of our veterans are out there collecting money. They are not affiliated with government agencies like the Veterans Administration, and many of them are, well, a bit on the shady side. If you gave any of your hard-earned mon ey to one of those solicitors last week, lets just hope it finds its way to a vet whos down on his or her luck. Pardon my skepticism (I was suspicious based on the shoddy appearance of those signs call me crazy). And while were on the subject, dont you think itd be a good idea to ban curb side col lections altogether in the city? Theyre annoying, particularly when one passes through intersections several times during a collection period. Theyre dangerous by the very fact that collectors are on the rightsof-way, often contending with turn ing vehicles and limited vision or, God forbid, every other driver who happens to be on a telephone or tex ting. Well no doubt hear from worth while organizations like the city fire department (Jerry Lewis Telethon), cheerleaders and the like, who will argue their causes trump the an noyance and danger factors. There are plenty of high traffic locations where such solicitations can (and often do) take place in front of Walmart or Winn-Dixie for example. The stores dont seem to mind, as long as the process is or derly, and they get the benefit of supporting noble causes. The legal counsel for the Florida League of Cities said this week he was un aware of any existing ordinances banning curb side collecting. Many cities enact ordi nances outlawing panhandling or begging for money common where homeless people hang out. This is a bit different, but it still carries the annoyance factor. Heres the deal: if I want to donate to Jerry Lewis, cheerleaders, other school and civic grounds, Ill write them a check. Leave me and my deep thoughts in peace at the stoplight. PHOTO BY JIM MCGAULEY Sandwich board sign soliciting donations at 5th Street and US 90 last week. Prohibit curb side soliciting It was a great day, he said. There was steady py. Joy Ruhe, a cottage food vendor who also raises exotic birds and sells jewelry adorned with the col Baker County Farmers Market. But she said it wont be the last. said Mrs. Ruhe, who raises primarily macaws and African greys at her home on Reid Stafford Road off County Road 229 near Sanderson. She said she has operated a booth at the Lake City Farmers Market for years, but after the successful day she had Saturday she plans to make the Baker County event a regular part of her schedule from now on. It was wonderful and organized really well, she said. Everybody was so supportive and I love the fact that everybody brought their children. It was also nice having public restrooms instead of port-alets. It was a particularly lucrative outing for her, as well. I made twice as much (money) as I usually did in Lake City in one day, Mrs. Ruhe said, adding that she sold earrings, hair bands and hair clips bearing feathers of bright, vibrant, crisp colors. Her jewelry customers, she said, ranged from school age children to those well over senior citizen status. People from 8 to 80 are wearing these feathers, she said. cupcakes and a variety of other goodies, including velvet cake, pound cake and carrot cake, all of which she baked in her home kitchen. Another vendor who had a pretty good day was Ralph Sands, owner of Sands Day Lily Farms and Farmers Market in 2010. They had a pretty good crowd, looked to me, said Mr. Sands. I had a booth down there sell We had a pretty good mixture. We had tomato and squash and cucumber and pepper plants. We had azaleas and blueberry bushes, too. After he got out of the automobile dealership busi ness in downtown Macclenny more than three de cades ago, he said, he and his wife started their farm any vegetables to bring to the market, he said, noting that hes starting to slow down a bit as he nears his 80th birthday come August. He said hed like to see more participation by other vendors in the market and predicted that the numbers would grow as spring vegetables mature on local farms. Mr. Register said he, too, expects the number of vendors to start increasing over the next several weeks. Theres hardly any local vegetables growing right now, he said. By early April, as local crops become more available well start seeing more farmers (par ticipating). Only two produce vendors brought fresh vegeta bles to the park Saturday, including tomatoes, cab vendors sold a variety of things, including the feath ered jewelry, bird houses, plants and cottage foods. April Teel and Jeanie Prosch, Baker County sib lings who run a cottage food partnership called Two Sisters and an Oven, said they sold almost all the food they brought to the market Saturday, which in cluded fresh baked loaves of bread, brownies, choco late chip cookies. They also brought some homemade homeopathic skin creams and soy candles, but said those items dont sell as well as their baked goods. Wendell Cones, one of the vendors who brought thing all morning. However, he wasnt discouraged and said he would return. We know people come and look, and then a week or so later they come back with money, he said. Trees arent cheap. market season. Mr. Register said it probably will end in July. It depends on the vendors and shoppers, he said. It takes vendors to attract shoppers and youve got to have shoppers to attract more vendors.

From page 1 case law explaining the differ ence between property taxes and assessments. In a 1992 case, for instance, the supreme court said that taxes are not required to provide any ject to the tax. Rather, they fund the governments general op and property within the govern ments jurisdiction. Assessments, on the other hand, must provide dened by the assessment. While the [state] legislature has used the term assessment ... assessment as a general tax, pur suant to Florida constitutional provisions and available to those counties falling within the scope of the definition of county in that statute, states the opinion. Mr. Maloney received a copy of the opinion as well and did not disagree with its interpretation of the law. But, he said, he found it proposed special assessment for EMS as a tax. It looks like theyll be putting another tax on the people of Bak er County, said Mr. Maloney. He said hes not received any garding the recently released opinion, but that county com missioners can rely on it to pro ceed with the special assessment for EMS unless the move is chal lenged in court. And I have no idea if anyone would challenge it, the attorney said. County commissioners began discussing the proposed assess ment last fall while crafting the countys 2012-13 budget, a plan that for now could pull some $2.2 million from reserves to balance anticipated spending. The board approved an ordi nance a few years ago authoriz ing a special assessment for EMS, but the ordinance set the assess ment amount at zero. Commissioners have said an EMS assessment would broaden the number of properties pay ing for the public service. Today, many property owners pay little or no property taxes due to a number of exemptions available for homesteads, churches, agri cultural land, the elderly, the dis abled and veterans. Theyve also talked about ex empting some groups, like the poor, elderly or disabled, from the proposed special assessment for EMS and coupling the assess ment with a proportional reduc tion in the countys property tax, or millage rate. Commissioners agreed this week to meet with the Macclenny City Commission to further dis cuss the matter on March 19. The 4 pm meeting will take place at 55 N. 3rd St. in Macclenny.

The vehicle refused to stop while it turned west with the officer behind it on Lowder, then onto Grissholm to South Bou levard and back on Quail, and Deputy Dougherty said it sped up several times when he pulled alongside to prevent the driver from fleeing on foot. Once stopped, the officer and several others summoned to the scene learned that Mr. Walker was wanted in Columbia County on a felony probation violation. They also found a cloth liquor bottle bag with six smaller salesize baggies inside containing cocaine. On the passenger side floorboard was a loaded .357 pis tol. A 16-year-old girl exited the vehicle before the suspect, and she said in a later interview she had snuck out of a residence on Quail to meet the suspect, then became upset when he refused to stop for Sgt. Dougherty. She also said Mr. Walker pulled the pistol from his waist band and gave it to her along with the cocaine bag before he stopped the vehicle. His probation was for bring ing a firearm into a prison or jail. Mr. Walker was booked in Baker County for re sisting police, driving on a suspended license, carrying a concealed weapon, having a fire arm while committing a felony, possession of cocaine and marijuana. In another drugrelated arrest, a Baker County High School student, age 15, was charged the morning of March 1 with felony pos session of marijuana with intent to sell. Campus deputy Matt Riegel said the schools assistant prin cipal John Staples received a tip that the male student, from the Glen St. Mary area, was attempt ing to sell the drugs on campus. With the student present, the officials found a balled-up plastic baggie with six smaller packages containing marijuana. Deputy Riegel noted in his report that the teen blurted out Thats not mine when the baggie was pulled from a hiding place in the locker room. He made the comment before the contents of the baggie were known. Kentavis Walker JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org Three structures, including the forestry station in the John Bethea State Forest in Baxter, were threatened but untouched by a wildfire that eventually burned nearly 300 acres in the north county the afternoon of March 3. Florida Forestry Service per sonnel responded to a report of smoke in the vicinity of Baxter Grade and Road 29 about 1:15 pm and found some four acres burning. Winds gusting to 30 mph out of the southwest pushed the jumped Baxter Grade and the railroads tracks to the north, said FFS spokesman Kurt Wisner. The state used three tractor a call for reinforcements, he said. Additional tractors plows arrived from Jacksonville and Georgia and wildfire units from Baker and Bradford counties assisted as well. Baker County Fire Chief Rich ard Dolan said his crews focused on protecting two structures about 3:50 pm while seven plows in all worked to contain the blaze. ran, said Chief Dolan, adding that the county sent three en gines, three tankers, three brush trucks and a rehab unit to sup port the state. Florida Highway Patrol placed smoke warning signs on State Road 2 and CR 127 and sheriffs ists in the area. 5:30 pm, but not before it grew to 282 acres, stopping just south of the John Bethea State Forest headquarters. Just before we left we got a good rain, so that helped, said Chief Dolan. State forestry officials con tinued mop up operations and monitoring during the following the days. Though the multi-agency ef fort eventually confined the blaze, for a while it was a little scary, said Chief Dolan. You couldnt see anything because the smoke was so thick. under investigation early this week. MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF The Baker County School Board received a report this week on how the district is gearing up to meet the state and nations new mission to prepare students for jobs in an increasingly complex and technological global workforce through a program called STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The report was presented during a board meeting on the evening of March 5 at Taylor Church by Da vid Davis, director of teaching and learning, and Ann Watts, director of career and adult edu cation. Ms. Watts started the presen tation off with an explanation of why STEM education matters. Thats where the jobs are, she said matter-of-factly. STEM job creation over the next 10 years will outpace noning 17 percent, as compared to 9.8 percent for non-STEM posi tions. As one might expect, workers with educational backgrounds heavy in science and math also earn much higher salaries, Ms. Watts said, noting that accord ing to the US Commerce Depart expect to earn 26 percent more money, on average, and be less likely to experience job loss. A big problem nationwide, however, is that the United States is failing to produce enough STEM-skilled workers and is fast losing its competi tive edge, Ms. Watts said. She added that the US ranked sixth among 40 countries and regions based on 16 indicators of inno vation and competitiveness in a recent study that focused on venture capital investment, sci search and educational achieve ment. Another gloomy statistic she pointed out is that the prestigious World Economic Forum now ranks the US as No. 48 in quality of math and science education. The simple fact, Ms. Watts said, is that American students are not keeping up with students in other countries in math and sci ence. She cited a 2009 National Assessment of Education Progress, essentially the nations report card, which stated that only 1 percent of 4th and 12th grade students and 2 percent of 8th graders scored in the highest level of pro This is costing America jobs and money, she told the board. During the presentation she introduced three seniors from Baker County High School as STEM ambassadors. Matt Cantrell, Clay how they use the four components of STEM in their studies of agri-technology. Activities that help students build skills in applying science and math to solve problems also are in place at Keller Intermediate, Mac clenny Elementary, Westside Elementary and Baker County Middle School, Ms. Watts said. The school district has established STEM partnerships with the Northeast Florida Edu cational Consortium and JAXUSA Regional STEM Task Force, an arm of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce. In a related matter, the school board ap proved a collaborative agreement with Florida State College at Jacksonville for a program in 2012-13 for enrichment opportunities for stu dents in the automotive service technology program at the high school. Ms. Watts said students can earn up to six ployment in the automotive industry after high school, or they could exchange the certif icates for college credits if they choose to pur sue the two-year automotive degree at FSCJ. The school board also: er, a teacher at Baker High School, to attend the National Science Teachers Conference in Indianapolis, Ind. March 29-April 1. This is just a fantastic opportunity to build our STEM course offerings through the professional development our Science Depart ment Chair will receive, Baker High Principal Tom Hill said. What makes this opportunity even better is that the DuPont Corporation is funding her airfare and hotel stay. Later, Mr. Hill said, he hopes to establish a partnership with DuPonts local mining op eration that will allow students to expand their knowledge of STEM-related subject matter to come, Mr. Hill said. east Florida Healthy Start Coali tion for medical and dental care to uninsured school children in Baker County. The program will be administered by the Florida KidCare Outreach Services at the Family Service Center at 418 Eighth St. South in Macclenny. There is a big need to have an outreach person help fami lies sign up for this insurance, said Marcheta Crews, school districts chief nurse. Jack Johnson, regional out reach coordinator for Florida KidCare, said the program will provide vital health care services to many children that presently have no medical insurance. There are over 200 children in Baker County eligible for this program that are uninsured, Mr. Johnson told the school board. We want to partner with schools to inform parents about what is available. While some parents may have to pay a maximum $20 a month, regardless of how many children they have, most house holds would qualify for free in surance, he said. a senior at Baker County High and a lifelong resident of Taylor, for winning the state high school bull riding championship last year and later going on to place Rodeo Association competition in Wyoming. As she introduced the young man to the audience, School Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson couldnt resist the impulse to demonstrate her word-rhyming wit: Hes a rootin-Tuten cowboy. I just had to say that, she said laughing. With his parents, Chris and Judy Blue, and grandfather W.C. Blue in the audience, the 17-year-old bull rider said he had at one time considered going to college right out of high school. Now, things have changed. I turn 18 in July and I may go pro with the PBR (Professional Bull Riding Association), he said. With the good Lord leading me I be lieve I can go all the way. Nobody in the room seemed to have any doubts about the young mans ability to make his dream come true. Crawling on the back of a bull, you just dont get to be more cowboy than that, said PHOTO COURTESY OF BAKER COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT Brandon Tuten accepts plaque from Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson. Tech job preparation needed MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Plans for an access road to va cant land possibly targeted for a future industrial development north of the Walmart Distribu tion Center were approved by the Baker County Commission the evening of March 6. The plans call for the county to extend Enterprise East Boulevard northward to property owned by the Baker County Economic De velopment Commission. In a land agreement approved with TerraPointe LLC, a subsidiary of Rayonier Corp., the county will receive right-of-way access to ex tend the boulevard through the companys adjoining properties. Commissioners asked County Manager C.J. Thompson if state economic development incen tive grants might be available to fund the extension of the road, to which he said there were no guar antees but the prospects were high. We have a good indication of it (grant approval), he said. Having a roadway easement all the way from US 90 to the countys developable land site makes the property more eco nomically attractive to whoever goes in there, Mr. Thompson said. However, he said he had heard for developing the property. Ed Preston, the countys planning and zoning director, also denied having knowledge about any plans for the propertys future use. The Economic Development Commission originally owned 251 acres intended for develop ment as an industrial park, in occupant. The remaining devel opable land is about 125 acres, ac cording to Darryl Register, execu tive director of the Baker County Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Com mission. In a brief telephone interview after the county commission meeting, Mr. Register said he was not at liberty to divulge any devel opment plans for the property. Im under a confidentiality agreement, he said. I cant di vulge anything. However, he said, he might have an announcement to make in two or three weeks. In other business this week, commissioners: tract with Emergency Medical Services employees retroactive to October 1, 2011. One new addition to the con tract is a section that provides an incentive for employees to give at least 48 hours notice when they know theyll be absent from work. The county manager said this was a major change. The new language states: An employee with zero (0) call-ins with less than 48 hours notice will receive 48 additional vaca tion hours for the following cal endar year. Mr. Thompson said the change does not anticipate this being a huge budgetary problem. It is extremely disruptive when an EMS personnel calls in (unable to come to work), he said. We have to call someone else in and pay them overtime. EMS workers received no pay raise, the same as all other county employees. However, the county will pay for the laundering of EMS workers uniforms, will provide tuition reimbursement for employees who further their education, and will pay $50 per month extra to employees with an associates degree or $100 per month extra to those with a bach elors degree. The contract states that educa tional degrees must be directly related to their job. the countys employee insurance its scope, membership and roles, education for members about in surance matters and the schedule for engaging employees in discus sions about their insurance. Membership will consist of 12 employees: two from the county commission and two from each The county manager will serve as a non-voting facilitator. I felt the whole process need ed more structure, Mr. Thomp son said, noting that the com mittee will start reviewing the current insurance coverage and discussing any changes employ ees want earlier than in the past. Committee members will en gage the employees they repre sent in March and April, he said, rather than June or July, which has been the case in the past. Commission Chairman Gor don Crews said he had discussed the committee restructuring with all thought it was a good idea. Mr. Crews also said he had made it clear to everyone that the board doesnt intend to pay any higher premiums for insur ance coverage. If employees want changes that would result in a premium increase they will have to absorb the higher costs them selves, he said. gineer working on the transpor tation center plans behind the Winn Dixie shopping center on 6th Street that the county plans to pave Willis Hodges Road on the north side of the site, which is the future home of the Council on Aging. Mr. Thompson said the en gineer wanted to know whether the county planned to pave Willis Hodges and Buck Starling Road, which runs north and south di rectly behind the Winn Dixie along the propertys eastern side. The engineer needed the infor mation in order to complete the design work, Mr. Thompson said. The paving project, which will include curbs and gutters, would extend Willis Hodges roughly 800 feet or so west and would enable storm water to drain into Turkey Creek, the county man ager said. The project was estimated a year ago to cost about $63,000. fered to share the cost with the county.

A Sanderson man faces multi ple charges after threatening his son with both a knife and pistol at a residence on Clete Harvey Rd. the evening of March 4 and early the next morning. Charlie (Lee) Hodges was in toxicated when he became angry at his son Tyler Hodges, 20, over a CD he could not find. The son countered that the CD had ear lier been given to him by a third party. The younger Hodges told Deputy Daryl Mobley he had to take his father to the ground to restrain him during a scuffle. The son then locked himself in a bedroom and his father retrieved a .22 caliber pistol and attempted to force his way into the room. Earlier, he allegedly pulled a pocket knife but the son knocked it from his hand before the scuf fle. The officer took the loaded pistol from the front seat of Mr. Hodges Ford pickup. Several witnesses at the scene, including the accuseds daughter, corroborated the sons version of events. Mr. Hodges was booked at county jail for two counts of ag gravated assault and one count of domestic battery. Police the past week were called three times to Northeast Florida State Hospital to inves tigate reports of battery, one of them involving a patient attack ing an employee. Mary told Deputy Matt Yarbor ough that a female patient, 53, attacked her from behind and scratched her in the chest area the afternoon of March 3. a 50-year-old male patient al leged he was attacked by another male, 22, during an argument over a chair.

Property of undetermined value was in the unit. and contents were taken from a yard sale site on north 6th St. in Macclenny the morning of March 4. She told Deputy Matt Yar borough she last saw the wallet about 9 am on a display table, and noticed it gone a half hour later. It contained $115, a bank card and identification. vandalism to a 2000 GMC pick up belonging to Walter Giles of Sanderson during the evening hours of March 3. Mr. Giles said he left the ve hicle for about four hours in the parking lot of Country Federal Credit Union in east Glen St. Mary. The officer said the truck was keyed from front to back on the left side and a lewd comment was scratched on the tailgate. The victim named several sus pects. Brandi Harrison, 29, and her live-in boyfriend Timothy Saw yer, 37, gave Deputy Patrick Mc Gauley conflicting versions of events that ended in a slapping fight in front of Ms. Harrisons two children, ages 10 and 11, and another child, age 3, who belongs to the couple. The couple reportedly had argued extensively that day and both called police. Driver, passenger are arrested JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR Kyle McCartys Christmas list two years ago was very short. It contained only one, very expensive gift. And when his mother saw it hanging on the fridge, she be gan to cry. The overweight teenager asked for gastric bypass sur gery, the same procedure his parents received some years earlier. She was like, I know you really want this and well do the best we can, Mr. McCarty, now 18 years old and enlisted in the Marines Corps, re called March 5 during an after-school workout session. That moment began a long process in which, little by little, Mr. Mc Carty shed near ly half his body weight some 165 pounds. At age 16, the Baker County High School student tipped the scales at 340 pounds. He did little outside of school except play video games. It was painful to walk around cam pus. He was teased by classmates. He needed special chairs because he couldnt fit into standard seats. Now, all of that is in the past. After asking his parents for the gastric bypass, also known as the stomach stapling surgery, they took him to see the same doctor who oversaw their surgeries when they each weighed more than 300 pounds. The physician prescribed a diet of no more than 1000 calories a day and regular exercise. My parents literally, physically pushed me to do exer cise, Mr. McCarty said. All I used to do, day and night, was play video games. I wouldnt go outside for days at a time. The Macclenny teen soon dropped 15 pounds. week, it just kept getting easier and easier, he said. Mr. McCarty went to see his doc tor again. Hed lost 50 pounds at that point and the doc tor refused to move ahead with the surgery. He said youre too young, we cant give this to you, Mr. McCarty recalled. More time passed and the youth kept feel ing better and bet ter, physically and emotionally. Last September, he walked into a military re Looking back, he said, it was a blessing his doctor and his parents health insurance carrier turned him down for the gastric bypass. Luckily, I didnt have it, because if I did, they said they wouldnt be able to take me, Mr. McCarty said of the Marine Corps. When asked how someone so young and so overweight could drop so many pounds, the high school senior credited plenty of motivation. He wanted to follow in his fathers and grandfathers footsteps and become a Marine. Its just a tradition, he said. I wanted to continue that. He had the support of his family. When he began his diet, the house was purged of all junk food. While tempta tions were everywhere at school, he said he persevered and stuck to his microwavable meals. And last, but not least, there was this girl at school, he said. Thats why I really lost the weight. At 300 pounds, I had no chance, said Mr. McCarty. The Jacksonville native still craves key lime pie and chocolate covered cherries, but now theyre an occasional treat instead of an everyday snack. He remains a gamer playing titles like Call of Duty Battlefield World of Warcraft but he also spends 15 to 20 minutes each morning running. He attends work outs in the evenings, too, either with other BCHS students com peting in the Clash of the Wildcats exercise program or fellow Ma rine recruits in Jack sonville. His other hobby is Airsoft, which he de scribes as just like paintball, but awe somer. Mr. McCarty is the son of Priscilla and Ray McCarty. Were the proudest weve ever been of him, said his couldnt walk around the block, a distance less than 1 mile. Now hes running 5Ks, he said. To see where hes been and wheres hes at now, its a story that merits being told ... People need to know that theres a choice in life. Kyle McCarty has an older brother, a six-year Army vet eran and zookeeper at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, and three elder sisters. He said he hopes his transformation will inspire other overweight youths to follow in his footsteps and lead healthier lifestyles.

They face Paxon and Yulee March 8 and 9 at home. The bats stayed red hot against Bishop Kenny during the 10-0 win at home on February 28. The girls broke open a scoreless game with seven runs in the third inning. Tina Hauge, Shelby Gatto, Taylor Crummey, Clara Harvey, Brooke Roberts, Megan Farmer and Tayler McCann all scored.

At right, Austin Rowe bunts. Trouncing continues Wildcats on ve game win streak Like their counterparts on the girls varsity softball team the Wildcat baseball team is in cruise control at this point in the season. Coach Fred Matricardis Wildcats are in the midst of a five-game win streak. The bottom of the line-up has stepped up and carried us in the last couple games, said Matri cardi. I still feel like we havent played as well as we are capable of. Hopefully, we can put it to gether real soon. We have a sixgame stretch against real tough competition coming up. If we dont get consistent we can be 6-7 quick. The pitching rotation has been effective and even in close games has managed to eke out wins. The Cats beat Keystone Heights 4-3 on March 28. Tied 3-3 in the sev enth, Chris Waddell reached on an error and stole second. After, an intentional walk to Ethan Wilkerson, Wad dell and Hunter Bell pulled off a double steal to get to second and third. Tyler Mobley singled in the game-winning run for a 4-3 win. Jared Crews and Waddell combined for the win. Kyle Horne had a hit and a sacrifice fly that brought in a pair of runs and Austin Rowe added a double and an RBI. innings on March 1. Chris Wad dell started and threw five score less innings, giving up only one hit and striking out seven. Brad Stone threw three innings and picked up the win in relief. Offensively, Austin Rowe went 2-3 with 2 RBIs and Mikal Flores drove in the game winning run after a Yulee error. There have been a lot of fac tors contributing to the streak. Our pitching has been great all year, said Matricardi. Our defense has been getting better, and we have done a good job on the bases and manufacturing runs. We just need to swing the bat better. The 6-1 Wildcats play Fernan dina Beach at home Thursday, March 8 at 6:30 pm and have a district game at home versus Terry Parker the following night at 6:30 pm.

Misidentied The batter pictured in last weeks edition with the article Lady Cats smothering foes was The player shown was Brooke Roberts. The Press regrets the er ror. Up to now, the Baker High boys and girls tennis teams have cruised through opposition like a knife through hot butter. But last week the knife ran into a chain saw as they came up against pe rennial state contender Bolles. The Bulldogs handed the teams their first loss of the sea son, shutting out both the boys and girls teams. The boys lost 0-7. Nick Duke man fell 2-8 in number one sin gles. Sam Murphy lost 0-8 and Jared Stafford was defeated 1-8. The most competitive match of the day was in number four sin gles, where Hunter Stavely lost 6-8. Grant Burns fell 1-8. Duke man and Murphy lost 2-8 and Stafford and Stavely fell 4-8. The girls lost 0-7 with Kay lann Stafford losing 0-8 and Lo gan Raulerson beaten 2-8. Tian na Raysor and Stephanie Gross lost 3-8 and Haliegh Latimer 1-8. The doubles team of Stafford and Raulerson lost 4-8 and Raysor and Gross fell 5-8 in a competi tive match. After playing Bolles, the teams know what they need to work on, said Coach Chris Ar moreda. First and foremost, the team needs to work on hitting consistency. They need to be able to sustain a rally and not make unforced errors. The teams travel to Yulee on March 13. bakercountypress.com Photo Prints are Great Gifts (and so are mousepads, poster prints, and mugs)See many of the professional photos from our paper and thrill someone special by ordering a print or a photo gift of you favorite.

The girls out scored the opposition 22-1 over the two games. Both games ended early as the umpires invoked the Mercy Rule. The Bobcats defeated Lakeside 11-1 on February 27 and Richardson 11-0 on the following day. Macy Jackson, Hayleigh Mulkey, Brandie Callaway and Delicia Washington continue to play well in the infield and Melanie Sweat has been strong in the out field. Coach Jon Mobley is encouraged by the string of victories, but like coaches everywhere sees room for improvement. We are starting to play up to our capabilities on defense. We still have some work to do offensively, said Mobley. We are able to score runs, but we can still hit better than we are doing now. That will be our focus along with not letting our defensive efforts slip. PHOTO BY DEBBIE PELHAM Hayleigh Mulkey in the 11-0 win against Richardson.
