The Florida Highway Patrol said the eastbound semi crossed the center line after applying brakes for an unknown reason and its right front struck the right front of the westbound 2004 van driven by Robert Chewning, 42, of Jacksonville. His passenger, Dewayne Allen, 25, of Yulee, FL was critically injured. The driver of the semi, Michael Welch, 54, of Jacksonville, was seriously injured, as was Mr. Chewning. All three were own from the scene near West Thomas Dr. to Shands Jacksonville. The accident occurred at 3:05 and blocked trac on 90 for several hours. Trooper M. Childress investigated for FHP. Sentencing will be later this month for a Macclenny man convicted of multiple counts of sexual battery on a minor child dating back to early 2001. A 12-member jury took about a half hour to return guilty verdicts against David M. Hill, 37, following a day and a half trial last week, just under one year after his arrest. The court dis missed one count of lewd or lascivious battery and the jury de others including four counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child less than 12 years old in a familial or custodial role. He was also found guilty of tampering with the victim or testimony during a phone call from county jail, where he has been held since his arrest on March 22, 2011. The defendant, a motel maintenance worker, was charged after the victims friends urged her to complain to authorities at her school. She told a sheriffs investigator that Mr. Hill had been molest ing her for a decade, and often bought her silence with gifts and candy. The victim said Mr. Hill struck her and tossed her pets when she rebuffed his advanc es, and at times threatened to kill her if she did not keep the relationship secret. The victim, now 17, wept during direct questioning on the stand by Assistant State Attorney Lorelie Papel, reiter ating statements made to po lice during the investigation. Mr. Hill did not take the stand, and was represented by Assistant Public Defender George Nelson. Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier set sentencing for April 24.

David Hill Jury says man guilty of having child sex Arrested for ring gun near Keller IS JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com A Pennsylvania-based corporation has plans to begin constructing a medical waste incineration facility north of the Walmart Distribution Center within the coming year. a draft application for permits from the Florida Depart ment of Environmental Protection as well as a draft de velopment agreement with the Baker County planning department. Both documents are incomplete, informal or other state regulators or the Baker County Commission, which will hold hearings on the proposed development next month. But, according to the draft development agreement, the project is expected to bring 59 jobs to the county ini tially, and as many as 100 in the long term. Jacksonville lobbyist Alberta Hipps represents In tegrated Waste Management Systems as well as an af ports medical waste in the northeastern US and recently opened a transfer station on the north side of Jackson ville. Ms. Hipps said Integrated Waste Management Sys tems wants to construct the so-called Bio-Medical Ther mal Reduction Facility as soon as possible and bring employees on board by the end of 2013 or sooner. She described the proposed facility as state-of-the-art, say ing it could serve as a model for the medical waste dis posal industry. Medical waste includes bodily tissue and blood as well as anything that comes into contact with them like hypo dermic needles. Ms. Hipps explained the company, which was formed in 2010, has no history of building or operating such a facility. She said the proposed project is the result of a decision by the company to build a new facility from the ground up to comply with more stringent environmen tal regulations established by the federal government in The project is being planned on 24 acres owned by the Baker County Development Commission at the north end of Enterprise East Boulevard. The company intends to construct some 92,800 square feet of building space, a 162-space parking lot and storm water retention facili ties. The buildings are expected to include a 50,000-square-foot structure housing the incinerator and a smoke stack of no more than 100 feet tall, which will require an approved height variance from the coun 22,000 square feet for future expansions, the draft devel opment agreement shows. Darryl Register, director of the Baker County Devel opment Commission, stressed this week that the success of the project hinges largely on the approval of a roughly $500,000 grant from the states Department of Econom ic Opportunity. The funds, he said, would allow the county to build an access road to the site, an incentive without which the company may not move ahead with the project. County commissioners inked an agreement earlier this month with TerraPointe LLC, a subsidiary of Ray onier Corp., to accept an easement from the timber com pany on which the road may be constructed. Other potential development incentives include tax breaks from the state based on employee wages as well as some $22 million in tax-free construction bonds that said Mr. Register. That makes their borrowing a little cheaper, he said. The draft development agreement to be considered by county commissioners at hearings on April 3 and 16 also calls for expedited permitting and the waiving of some development fees the company would otherwise have to pay under the countys land development regulations. Ms. Hipps said the company was also drawn to con sider the Baker County site because of its easy access to the interstate and larger transportation network. community, she said. We expect at least 40 percent of the business to come from the Jacksonville area ... and we also foresee being able to access customers in south Georgia and down to the middle part of the state. In addition to the public hearings next month on the proposed development agreement, company representa tives will be meeting with residents living near the proj ect site next week. They want to provide as many opportunities for the community to come forward and ask questions as pos sible, said Janet Herrick, a consultant with Onsite Envi ronmental Consulting of Jacksonville, whos doing pub lic outreach for the project.

As a matter of fact, as I write this column, Saint Louis is trailing Michigan State 42-49 and I am adjusting my focus from one screen to the other depending on whats hap pening on the court. I know I should get up and do something anything, but I just cant. I am not ordinar ily an addictive personality, but when I fall, I fall hard. What I love about this tour nament is the teams I know nothing about just handling the big boys. This wouldnt happen in most other sports.

You use a slingshot to throw birds at green pigs. Thats it. You can slingshot birds at pigs for hours and hours and hours. Thats all. Yet, it is the single most popular game in gamedom.

Dear Editor: As I listen to the glass bot tles breaking from the baseball bats and the laughter drifting over my fence, I wonder what is going to happen next. Years ago when we moved to Glen St. Mary, we raved about the peace and quiet and lack of criminal mischief. Little did I know that was going to change. We now have gang activity in the neighborhood where I bors. I am constantly on the lookout for my 84-year-old neighbor who lives alone and whose passions consist of her church and garden. She has stood in her garden as the Pamper Bandits tear through it on their bikes and four-wheelers, disregarding the destruction they are creat ing and her pleas to stay away. I dubbed them that name be cause surprisingly they are about 13 in number and range from under 6 to about 12 years old. They ignore her with looks of disdain. As they pass by my fence, they shout curse words come from their sweet-looking faces. Its inevitable that the sher iff will be called, as it seems to escalate and talking to parents has not been effective. It will be a sad day when the sheriff has to handcuff an 11-year-old and take him or her on a tour of their future home. Dad, Mom where are you?

The newspa per is picking up more com plaints from motorists who feel, as does yours truly, that the countys effort to appease the First Bap tist Church of Glen, which ini tially wanted to close Taber, amounts to silly overkill. In what the county now calls a compromise, four stop signs were erected at Tabers intersection with two east-west streets Andrews and South Boulevard ostensibly to slow traffic north and south past church buildings on both sides of the road. In addition, the county in stalled a raised pedestrian crossing over Taber between the main church buildings and others to the west, plus a park ing area. County Manager C.J. Thompson said the plan was worked out between the county and church officials after the county commission balked at the churchs bid to close the road. Hence, the compromise. Problem is, a compromise should be between the church, which exerted its right to insure the safety of its members dur ing service and activity times, and the public that wants to keep Taber open and free of un needed impediments to travel. The stop signs are impedi ments to travel because they are unnecessary except during church activities. The public, in effect, was left out of the compromise, which added to the perception that this plan is ill-conceived and motivated more by pub lic officials desire to appease a church-based voting block than to find a reasonable and work able compro mise that bet ter addresses the concerns of both parties. The reason able plan, as suggested earlier in this space, would be spin ning stop signs placed near the pedestrian crossing. They are pointed toward traffic during church times. The reduced speed limit of 15 mph over the crossing is reasonable. The four stop signs on Taber should be removed; those stopping traffic at Taber from Andrews and Boulevard a day] will stay as before. The county commission should re-visit this. The church has made its case for safety and the public its case for access to Taber. The compromise isnt that; its silly. JESSICA PREVATT | STAFF When did people get so self ish? I believe in people taking responsibility for themselves and their families. I dont be lieve the government should be as involved in my life as they are. I like to think my taxes provide an education for my kids, protection for me and my family with the police, partment and good roads and bridges for me to travel on. Not all of my tax dollars go to things I agree with and thats each election. In a recent letter to the edi tor the writer stated since she had never used the local EMS, she should not be responsible for paying an extra fee/tax to help cover those who have used EMS and didnt pay. I used EMS many years ago after a drunk totaled my car. My insurance company paid EMS and I appreciated having them there. As aggravated as I might get at the people who take advantage of them and never pay for the service they receive, I am glad to pay to make sure they are around if I ever need them again. It may hurt a little more come tax time, but the rescue service is worth every penny if they ever had to help save the life of a family member. Before welfare and Social Security, communities pulled together to help those in need. It wasnt permanent and peo ple who had hard times tem porarily had all the help they needed to get back on their feet. With all the government handouts now, nobody has to put forth an effort to help themselves. Government hand outs can last a lifetime if you know how to work the sys tem well enough. Why bother working? Then there was a comment on Facebook from a gentle man who didnt like the idea of paying the school taxes and/or impact fees. I can understand somewhat why someone with no kids questions why they have to support local schools. Then common sense kicks in. good school system. Schools teach the kids basic skills they use throughout their lifetime. Almost everyone employed in the workplace has had at least some schooling. Imagine a world where kids arent able to go to school. Try buying some thing in a store from someone who doesnt know how to do we know it wouldnt exist if we didnt have public schools be cause a lot of parents wouldnt bother teaching their kids. In todays world, with peo ple so dependent on govern ment and everyone looking out for themselves, weve turned an interest in how government has been running the country into the ground the last 50plus years, but look at the big picture. Dont nitpick over things that may not affect you today, but could tomorrow. Look at the government entitlements that started the ball rolling ers seem to be doing a pretty darn good job looking out for our welfare. The state and fed eral government are the ones who need a few hundred wakeup calls.

ursday, March 22, 2012 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, March 22, 2012 Who authorized, and paid for, the stop signs and elevated walk on George Taber in Glen St. Mary? I really have a problem with the county paying for three stop signs at Andrews [Street], a street that has been given to Glen Baptist and will be closed. Though no votes were cast by the Baker County Commission to ap prove the new stop signs and raised crosswalk, commissioners did di rect county staff to negotiate a compromise with the church. County Manager C.J. Thompson said the stop signs and crosswalk were the ultimate result of those negotiations and funded with money from a state road improvement program for small counties. The county used funds from the Small County Road Assistance Pro gram to repave Taber Boulevard and make the safety upgrades, he said. First Baptist of Glen St. Mary asked the commission last summer to close a 1500 foot stretch of Taber Boulevard, which connects US 90 to CR 125 S. just north of Interstate 10. The county owns and maintains the roadway, which runs between the churchs main campus on the east side of the road and a chil drens activities facility on the west side. After hearing from church leaders in favor of the closing and neigh borhood residents opposed to it the evening of June 20, only thencommission chairman Michael Crews spoke in favor of the move. His fellow board members made no motions, either to approve or deny the closure, however, and the measure died. The request made by the petitioner was to close the road all togeth er, which the board as a whole was not supportive of, Mr. Crews re cently wrote in an e-mail to a Glen St. Mary resident critical of the new stop signs and crosswalk. County staff was instructed by the board to meet with petitioner and to work out a compromise, which is the prod uct that we have today. Comparing the original request (closure) to A a good faith effort has been made on the boards part to assist the petitioner and still accommodate the motoring public. A day after the county commission failed to act on the churchs clo sure request, the Glen St. Mary Town Council agreed to close Andrews Street to accommodate First Baptist of Glens expansion plans. JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com The school districts most re cent audit for the year ending June 30, 2011 found that the district failed to enact policies to implement performance pay for teachers and administrators as required by the Florida Legisla tures education reforms passed two years ago. The reforms, which tie sala ries more closely to student test scores and end tenure for new hires, have been challenged in court by the statewide teacher union and some school board members appeared anxious to address the matter sooner rath er than later at this weeks board meeting the evening of March 19 Superintendent Sherrie Raul erson relayed comments from state auditors who said school districts across the state have been written up for lacking the same policy. Were in the process of de veloping new [testing] instru ments, she said. Throughout the state were in a transition pe riod moving to new assessments. were putting on every district as we move to the next phase of the teacher assessment and perfor mance pay. Still, board member Patricia Weeks, sought direction on how the board should come into com pliance with existing state law. Do we have to have a work shop on those, the formal policies and procedures? ... How will we work through that? she asked. Marcelle Richardson, who typi cally presents audit results and responds to questions, said such matters are negotiated as part of the local teacher unions annual contract and not determined solely by board policy. If we have to meet Florida statutes, I dont see how it can be negotiated, reasoned board Further complicating the im plementation of performance pay for teachers and administra tors is the lawsuit brought by the Florida Education Association, the statewide teacher union. The legislature has passed things that are being fought in court, just like retirement, said Ms. Richardson, referring to pension reforms signed into law last year that require state work ers, including teachers, contrib ute 3 percent of their annual wages to the Florida Retirement System. Theyve passed something they really cant do; the court is saying no, she said. Then it goes to the appellate court, then to the [Florida] Supreme Court. Youre on a slippery slope with all of it, and you can be grieved. And thats the reason you dont go in there and say youre going to do this policy. It has to be negotiated and theyre not willing to negoti ate. The state law gives school dis tricts until 2014 to fully imple ment the performance pay re forms, provided the courts dont repeal or amend the changes. The boards attorney advised school board members against crafting a performance pay pol icy before the legal challenges conclude. By the end of the summer, the law may be off the books, he said.

Any sign that appears to fall within one of go to the city manager for direction, Code En This is done to cover all the gray areas that we cant possibly put down on paper, she said. Over the years, the city has had to revisit the ordinance and conduct hearings to draft new language to cover new types of signs. The new amendment, which becomes ef fective immediately, is an attempt to expedite the process by giving the city manager broad powers to determine whether signs violate the ter of the law. Any business owner that wants to erect a sign is required to seek a permit at city hall, which would be the time for a determination to be made as to whether the proposed sign would be permissible. However, some signs are erected without a permit, in which case violations are usually caught by Ms. Chapman or the assistant city manager, Roger Yarbor ough. The city manager said he would consult with the city attorney and the staff in the process of re viewing the legitimacy of any questionable sign brought to his attention. During the commis sion meeting he said one type of sign that needs immediate scrutiny are those that are held aloft by people, often dancing, on sidewalks and street corners in front of retail strip centers advertising a particular store. Ive seen them in Or ange Park and other plac es, Mr. Dopson said. I enjoy some of it. They do a pretty good dance and all. He asked City Attor ney Frank Maloney if such advertising signs would violate the city ordinance. That would be a very interesting call, Mr. Maloney said. If you want to do away with hu man signs you should add it to the ordinance. Its probably not prohibited. Ms. Chapman said the test is whether signs create a distraction to motorists and, there Mayor Gary Dopson said he didnt think hand-held signs by people dancing on side tended to bring more attention to a business, Last month, commissioners reluctantly voted to reject a business owners request to shop, which he opened last summer on the old Ace Hardware site on US 90. Auto Repair and the other Brakes on a fence in front of his shop, C&W Automotive, but was ordered to remove them a couple of weeks later by the assistant city manager. City Manager Dopson was directed to dis with the city attorney for a possible amend ment the ordinance at a later date. No matter how we tweak it, were never going to get a perfect sign ordinance thats go ing to apply to everyone, the city manager said. The new lan guage adds the following un der prohibited signs: All signs which the City Manager deter mines do not meet the intention of Section 14-5, Purposes and Intent, and Section 14-24, Appearance Standards, of this ordinance or in the manag ers opinion is an attempt to circumvent this Chapter. In addition to non-conforming signs, the city manager said another concern are old, damaged signs that have clearly outlived their usefulness and have become eyesores. There are many signs out there that are di lapidated, he said. One such sign that was recently brought to the citys attention is an old, rusted, bent sign frame in front of a narrow vacant lot on US 90 between a glass shop and seafood outlet. The sign appears to have been there for decades and Mr. Yarborough said he thought a seafood market used to occupy the now-empty lot. Ms. Chapman said the owner of the proper 30 days to remove the old sign structure and that he has about one week left. If its not taken down the city will take it down and put a lien on the property, she said.

Con sultant Spencer Nabors said 18 applications from contractors and 18 applications from homeowners had been received, but only nine of the homeowners were eligible to receive funds. The 18 contractors were approved by com missioners, but Mr. Nabors asked for ad ditional time to return with a list of 12 eligible homeowners, which is the minimum number that the grant was in tended to serve. The nine home owners that failed to meet the criteria were deemed ineligible for a number of reasons, including deed is sues, back taxes not being paid and having too much income, Mr. Nabors said. approval to an ordi nance that would al low owners, or au of semi truck tractors to park the vehicles on the driveways of their residence, with a city parking permit.

Bone Senior Pastor MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Barber Road, half paved and half dirt, used to be a quiet neigh borhood road extending from 6th Street down to SR 228 through a wooded low area and across a tiny creek. That was before Walmart moved to a larger store on SR 228 a few years ago. Since then, increased traffic and speeding vehicles using it as a short cut have turned it into a dangerous place, several area residents told coun ty commissioners during a board meeting on the evening of March 19. Its basically com mercial traffic going through a residential neighborhood people using it for their conve nience at our safety risk, Barber Road homeowner Cindy Collins said during the meeting. Barber Road was on the board agenda as a continuation of a previ ous discussion a couple of months ago during which commissioners heard similar complaints and asked County Man ager C.J. Thompson to the road. Mr. Thompson this month counted 5,155 vehicles, which compared to just under 5,000 last year. Ms. Collins and other resi dents in the neighborhood say increases through their neighbor hood. They urged commission Signs at both ends of the road state that its closed to through said. fore the Walmart came, said Pat Shannon, who said he has lived on Barber Road for 42 years. In the past decade, he said, four tele phone poles have been knocked down by vehicles or hit so hard they had to be replaced, two houses have been damaged by ve hicles and at least two have over turned into the creek off a narrow bridge with no guard rails. Its going to take somebody dying, or getting hurt bad, to close that road, Mr. Shannon said. Nearly a mile of Barber Road is paved from 6th Street eastward, where it becomes dirt and slants downward to a bend in the road in front of a driveway leading to a residence. There, three stops converging at that spot, but resi dents say nobody stops. The three-way stop signs, you might as well take em down, Mr. Shannon said. Its a three-way go sign. Eric Rice, who said he moved to Barber Road in 2010, said the stop signs are little more than a suggestion. And Melissa Barber Adams, who said she has lived on the curve on Barber Road forev er, said some drivers rush right past the stop signs and go sliding around the turn. Not only is it a dangerous road, she said, its also a place where litterbugs throw out trash all the time and some people stop to relieve themselves in the creek. They love to use it as a pub lic rest room, she said, and beer bottles and everything else is thrown out. They have no re spect. Don Elliott said he lives about 100 yards from the corner and he has to take my life into my hands backing out of my driveway. He said speed bumps would help slow vehicles down. You put a big enough speed bump there and people are going to slow down, Mr. Elliott said. He also echoed comments from others about the amount of trash that many people carelessly toss out of their windows, adding: Theyre a bunch of slobs. Commissioners said speeders and litterbugs are not just a prob lem for people on Barber Road. They are county wide. However, the board agreed to conduct an informal hearing to continue dis cussing the issue during the April 3 board meeting at 5 pm. Meanwhile, Commissioner Michael Crews suggested resi dents might want to inundate the Baker County Sheriffs Of about the situation. He also said he favored closing the road, a sug gestion he has made in the past. Commissioner Adam Giddens said he opposed closing the road, at least until other options have been explored, but he agreed that the complaints focus on a law enforcement issue. Maybe we should encourage the sheriff to put somebody out there to write some tickets, he said. Another road issue also gener ated a bit of conversation during the board meeting when several residents complained about dusty conditions in their neighborhood since the county laid down lime rock on Bob Kirkland Road two years ago. You cant keep your porches clean. You have to hose down your car two or three times a week. And some days I cant even see the house across the street because of the dust, said Wilma Rowe, a 44-year resident, who presented a petition containing As long as rain keeps the lime rock wet it serves as a decent road base, but dry conditions are far more prevalent, petitioners said. The petition states, in part: We are inundated with lime rock dust and desperately need relief from it. Our homes, porch and carports are covered in a thick layer of lime rock dust. It settles on our outdoor furniture, in our swimming pools, on our boats and campers and vehicles. There are persons with medically documented breathing condi tions and this is causing them medical distress. Barbara Lee said she was told in 2000 that Bob Kirkland Road was on a list of roads to be paved. I have asthma and I know for a fact the lime rock affects me, she said. I cannot breathe it. We would really like to have the road paved. The board agreed to look into the situation to see if anything can be done, but made no prom ises. Something needs to be done, Commissioner Jimmy Anderson out what can be done. Commissioner Giddens said Bob Kirkland Road is in his dis trict and that he had received phone calls from people com plaining about the lime rock dust, but there wasnt much he could tell them. I told them the issue is mon ey, he said. If we had the money wed pave every road in the coun ty. In other business, commis sioners: ager to send a letter to Gov. Rick Scott urging him to veto House Bill 5301, legislation that would pass along greater costs to Flori das 67 counties for Medicaid ex penses. The underlying problem is a Agency for Health Care Admin istration, which has notoriously sent inaccurate, duplicate and erroneous bills to counties, the letter stated. House Bill 5301 is a clear attempt by the Florida Leg islature to shore up state agency funds at the expense of local tax payers, which amounts to an un funded mandate. The county manager said the legislation would impose an estimated negative impact of $167,688 on Baker County, which would be 28.4 per cent higher than Medic aid spending last year. Baker County has been diligent in paying its fair share of Medicaid bills, and we protect our taxpayers by rejecting bills sent to us incorrect ly, reads the letter writ ten by the county man ager. House Bill 5301 would unjustly force counties to pay up front for bills we know to be incorrect.

Pictured above is Ava Gris playing with one of the 15 dogs and one cat brought to the farmers market that day by animal control director Georgia Monfort and shelter volunteers. The chocolate colored female feline was adopted along with a 5-month-old female chihuahua, 4-month-old male black lab mix and 2-year-old male dotson. Ms. Monfort called the adoption rate about average, but said she hopes to hold another event in a more visible location, perhaps on US 90 in Macclenny. A lot of times people will look and not follow through [with adoption]. I never say it worked until they sign the paper, she said. Adoptions are $65 for dogs and $50 for cats.

Aid to 250-300 families You can be the one who is there for an abused and neglect ed child who was taken away from parents for their own pro tection, who thinks it is their fault, who has never been to a dentist or doctor, who does not know how long they will be alone who believes in their hearts that no one cares. Some of these children have been in three or more foster homes this year and four schools in the last two years. You can be the one for the child that has never been told they are loved, smart, talented, strong, worthy that they are somebody. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are ordinary people doing ex traordinary work. The program offers free training, legal and staff assistance. Volunteers com mit to at least one year and about 10 hours per month. If you are there for the child, providing valuable information and recommendations to the court and lifting up that childs voice in court, that child is half as likely to languish in foster care safe and permanent home.

Nearly 300 children from public and private preschools in the county learned about the im portance of reading with Ronald, who preformed magic, told jokes and read with the youngsters to promote literacy. Its nice because they can associate reading with a character they already know and love, said Naomi Anderson, a director at the school districts PreK-Kindergarten Center. The annual event was sponsored by Episcopal Childrens Services and the local McDonalds restaurant in Macclenny. The shows are a part of the companys Ronald Reading Ranger program. Each student receives a certicate and Reading Challenge Card to present at local libraries. Each book they read gets them one stamp on the card and ve stamps will mean a free burger from McDonalds.
