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 Integrated Waste Manage ment Systems, the Pennsylva nia-based com pany with plans to build a medi cal waste incin erator facility on 24 acres north of the Walmart Dis tribution Center, has canceled two public hearings on the project previously sched uled for April 12 and 16. In a letter to the Baker Coun ty Commission dated April 9, the company apologized for any misperceptions that may have been created during pub lic hearings last week and asked that the board defer taking any action on the de velopment agree ment. The develop ment agreement is a three-party contract between the company, county commis sion and Baker County Develop ment Commis sion, which owns the property in Enterprise East off US 90 on which the incin erator facility is planned. A previous hearing drew a standing-room-only crowd and prompted 14 residents to voice their opposition to the facil ity during the county commis sions meeting the evening of April 3.

I doubt the westerns I watched on television as a kid were very accurate. The men were dressed like the cowboys we were used to seeing on TV. They wore fan cy chaps and vests and sharp looking hats. The women were pretty and either saloon girls or farm ers daughters. They were clean and fresh-faced. When I now look at pictures from that time period, they look nothing like they were depicted in television and movies. The men are dirty, craggy looking, with mismatched clothes and floppy hats. The women are in variably plain, weathered and not the least bit attractive. They are hard people living a hard life in an inhospitable climate. It was the same with Robin Hood and King Arthur. The ar mor was bright and shiny and the people were clean and at tractive. It seemed so romantic. Later, in college I learned the truth about that time pe riod. The people bathed twice a year. They didnt really want to bathe, either, believing it washed off the protective body oils that warded off dis ease. They wore heavy woolen clothes and rarely ever washed their hair. Men and women were cov ered with fleas and lice, and stank. As a matter of fact, the whole castle stunk because there were no facilities and the privies emptied out through pipes in the walls and ran down the walls into the moat. I can imagine on a hot summer day it was difficult to even take a breath. I was a big fan of the Sher lock Holmes TV shows and movies, and London seemed so fascinating in the 1880s with its heavy fog rolling in each night. What I later discovered is that there was a reason for that fog. It wasnt the kind of fog we associate with early mornings in Baker County. It was, in fact, air pollution. The air was brown because homes were heated by coal furnaces. The coal smoke belched poisonous sulphur dioxide, which had a lot to do with the tremendous rate of tuberculosis in 1880s London. What got me thinking about how our image of the past in television and movies might be skewed was the AMC television series Mad Men about a Madi son Avenue advertising firm in the late fifties and early sixties. Mad Men is into its fourth season and consistently one of the most highly acclaimed pro grams on television. It has won 15 Emmys and 4 Golden Globes during its first three seasons. One of its selling points is that it is as accurate as possible in its portrayal of the time period. I never saw it before last week. Last week I decided to see what all the hoopla was about. Target had Season 1 on sale of $9.95 and I decided to pick it up and watch it over the Easter break. My son Spencer watches it and loves its sense of style, calling it completely different culture. I didnt know what he meant by that. After watching the first epi sode I knew exactly what he meant. Everybody smokes like a chimney. There isnt a scene where someone isnt lit up. In an early episode one of the sec retaries goes to the doctor and the doctor lights up a cigarette as hes examining her. The first episode is about how the firm is going to coun ter claims that cigarette smok ing is bad for your health. They decide to ignore it. Anti-semitism is rampant. There isnt a Jew in the entire firm and not a black face to be seen in the offices or restau rants. The way they treat the wom en in the firm would get most of the men fired for sexual ha rassment. They are treated as objects, and there is not a single woman with a managerial level job. I did a little research and in 1958 only 10% of women worked outside the home. Most that did had no choice. There were very few who considered themselves career women. How different from today. A man from that era transported to 2012 would think he was on another planet. He couldnt smoke at work, in a restau rant or even in a major league ballpark. Chances are many of his co-workers were women as 78% work outside the home these days. I found Mad Men a little depressing. For all its warts, I think Ill stay right where I am and stop working on that hot tub time machine. at $50,000. The suspect is an habitual traf He was released last October after serving 44 days in county jail following an arrest for driv ing on a suspended license. His criminal history also includes a three-month county jail sentence in January, 2009 for a DUI arrest in 2008. The roughly 10-acre Rayonier Road property is just east of the Walmart Distribution Center off US 90 in the Mattox Farm subdi vision. Its owned by R.T. Spivey Jr. and Verdie Gail Spivey, ac cording to property records. Manufacturing methamphet amine is a felony. Mr. Spiveys arrest comes just over a month after four other suspects in two separate cases, both involving a male and fe male, from Glen St. Mary and Baxter, respectively, were ar rested in early March for manu facturing the drug or procuring ingredients to do so. Five other males have been ar rested in Baker County on similar charges and two in Baldwin since mid-December of 2011.

It is projected this facility could produce as much as 6,000 pounds of solid waste a day. That amounts to well over 2,000,000 pounds per year. Where is this waste going to go? Is it possible our taxes will Sounds like a win-win for Integrated Waste Management Systems and the local government. Baker County makes money on the sale of the property, Integrated Waste Management Systems imports waste from Pennsylvania and other states, perhaps even from another country and then the Baker County residents foot the bill to extend Facilities such as this one are necessary; however, they should not be located near any town or municipality regardless of the size or population base. There are vast amounts of vacant acreage all over Florida and other regions of the United States where these processes could occur without threatening our health and livelihood. I bet theres even room in Pennsylvania! Joe DeFee Macclenny Dear Editor: The county commission should consider the health of Baker County citizens and vote against the medical waste fa cility. Twelve years ago I was diag nosed with two auto-immune diseases, and though I am in remission, I fear the carcino gens released into the air will exacerbate my condition. I also have depression and that would be aggravated with the thought of breathing air tainted with human blood and the bodies of innocent aborted babies. I trust the commissioners will listen to the voice of the people. Eva Redmon Macclenny Dear Editor: Aborted babies are classi babies will burn in the incin erator if it is allowed in Baker County.

Treatment shall occur within 30 days of collection from the generator.)

The facility plans include about 92,800 square feet of building space, including a 50,000-square-foot structure housing the incinerator and a smoke stack of no more than 100 feet tall, a 162-space parking lot and storm water retention facili ties. To read the companys letter to commissioners, please visit www.bakercountypress.com. From page 1 JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com The four-member Baker County Development Commis sion passed a resolution last week authorizing the issuance of up to $22 million in industrial revenue the proposed medical waste in cinerator facility. The unanimous approval came six days before Integrated Waste Management Systems, the company with plans to construct the incinerator facility north of the Walmart Distribution Center, asked the Baker County Commis sion and the development com mission to defer public hearings related story regarding the defer ral]. The development commis sions vote in favor of issuing the industrial revenue bonds was the to complete the bond issue, said commission director Darryl Reg ister a few hours after the 8:15 am meeting that took place at the Chamber of Commerce in down town Macclenny on April 3. He said neither the county nor the development commission would have any liability should Integrated Waste Management Systems be unable to repay the bonds. The development commis sions approval, however, reduc es the interest rate the company construction and exempts bond holders from taxes on the inter est theyll collect for lending the up to $22 million. Mr. Register said the bonds would not be sold on the open market, but rather one or two in stitutions would be loaning the money. must also approve the bond issu ance before negotiations between the company and lenders can be gin. The development commission was set to consider the bond is 12, but the hearing has been de ferred at the companys request along with consideration of a development agreement for the project and a separate agreement for the sale of 24 acres owned by the development commission on which the facility would be built. The states Department of Economic Opportunity has yet to approve a roughly $500,000 grant to the development com mission for engineering, design, permitting and construction of a 24-foot-wide access road to the property. But, Mr. Register said, Ive been told everything looks really good. Its one of the many incentives included in a development agree ment obtained by The Press and Baker County Commissioner last week. The 28-page agreement re quires that the development commission pay for the utility, transportation and storm water infrastructure needed to accom modate the facility at the project site. It also calls for the waiving or reimbursement of nearly all, if not all, of the countys develop ment fees, including those for permits, plan reviews and in spections. The landscaping regulations contained in the countys Land Development Regulations and those in place at the Enterprise East Industrial Park would be waived in favor of landscaping guidelines to be determined at a later date, the draft agreement shows. The county must also use commercially reasonable efforts to review plans and permits within 30 days of their submis sion. In return, the company com mits to completing construction of the facility and begin opera tions within two years after the project. After operations commence, the pact requires that the com pany hire 26 workers within the ers within two years and hire another four employees within three years for a total of 37 jobs tions. Company representatives have said they anticipate needing of the project and up to 100 in the long-term. Under the agreement, the company must also maintain a minimum of 37 employees with an average annual salary of $30,308 during the next 2.5 years. The average salary is 2.2 per cent above Baker Countys 2010 average, according to the Florida Department of Economic Oppor tunity. Should the company fail to meet the workforce benchmarks, the development commission could request a one-time pay ment of $100,000, and under the agreement, the company would be required to pay the lump sum within 45 days of the written re quest. BAKER COUNTY DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION Okays $22M in bonds Hearings on project postponed MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF ing motorists using Barber Road as a short cut be tween 6th Street and SR 228 several years ago, the It didnt work, however, because the message did not carry the weight of law and was never enforced. In any event, residents told county commissioners last month that the problems they experience daily than ever. Now, it appears as though the signs might actually mean what they say in the near future. At a board meeting on April 3, county commis sioners scheduled a vote on May 21 to determine whether Barber Road should be closed by erecting a locked gate in front of a small bridge across a stream a short distance from SR 228. Commissioner Michael Crews is the only member who has consistently spoken in favor of closing the road, and he said last week that he still feels the same way. My position hasnt changed, he said. We ought to close the bridge. Okay, but if we close the bridge we should main tain the road, said board Chairman Gordon Crews. Commissioner Adam Giddens, who said last Road should have been dealt with all along by the a little closer to joining the road-closure advocates last week. I still think its a law enforcement issue. Mr. Gid dens said. But if we close it we should maintain it. Commissioner Mark Hartley said he would agree to close the bridge but only if the county continues to maintain the road for emergency vehicles, such as law enforcement and emergency medical personnel who would have keys to unlock the gate. Commissioner Jimmy Anderson reiterated his previous position that the road is a county thor oughfare and should remain open for everyone in the county, rather than be closed at the request of a handful of residents who live along the road. But if a majority of commissioners vote to close the road, Mr. Anderson said, the county must main tain it to ensure that emergency vehicles have ade quate access to the neighborhood, especially in rainy weather when the dirt half of the road sometimes be comes almost impassable. That road does get bad and I dont want to have an issue where we cant get to them (residents in need of help), Mr. Anderson said. Residents pleaded with commissioners last would mean most of the people who live along Bar ber Road also would have to take a longer route to SR 228, where Walmart is located. Since the worlds largest retail chain opened a store at that location a neighborhood has increased tremendously. Sharon Padgett, a regular attendee at commis sion meetings, said she was sympathetic to the plight of Barber Road residents who have to put up with speeding cars and trucks, clouds of dust and litter tossed out by thoughtless people in passing vehicles. However, she told commissioners that was not a very useful transportation purpose as a parallel ser vice road to Interstate 10, thus keeping a lot of local Leave it open for all 27,000 people in the coun ty, Ms. Padgett said. counted 5,155 vehicles, according to County Manag er C.J. Thompson. Chairman Gordon Crews said a public hearing would be scheduled on the evening of May 21 to take action on the proposed road closing. Another road issue that again emerged as a topic of discussion at the April 3 board meeting was lime rock dust on Bob Kirkland Road. Residents com plained last month and asked the county to pave the road but the board said the county didnt have any money in the budget to do it. Commissioners said the same thing last week. I dont think we can afford to pave this road right now, said Commissioner Giddens, whose district in cludes Bob Kirkland Road. He said the county might be able to do something else to control the dust prob lem but paving was out, at least this year. I agree with Mr. Giddens, Commissioner An derson said. Weve got to be realistic and do what we can do. Paving the road, we just cant afford it. Finally, commissioners agreed that the county could put a layer of crushed asphalt on the road in a process known as milling. The work could be done said. Wilma Rowe, who told commissioners last month that the dust problems on Bob Kirkland Road didnt start until the county put lime rock down about two years ago, said she wants the road paved.

William Boone III, 40, al legedly confessed during an in terview with Deputy Johnny Hodges, who was called to the Kangaroo Store on US 90 across from the courthouse by Carol Markham of Jacksonville. She is a loss prevention officer with the chain, and was responding to an audit that showed the store was short $13,344 as of March 23. In addition, Ms. Markham told the deputy she examined surveillance video for six dates between March 3 and April 1 dur ing which Mr. Boone was seen taking nearly $400 in cash. He was arrested for grand theft. The clerk told Deputy Hodges he stole money for hotel rooms and food for himself, his girl friend and their small child. He also said he tapped rela tives for financial assistance but it was insufficient and he had no other choice than to steal. In another recent theft case in volving a Macclenny convenience store, a vehicle stolen earlier in Sanford, FL was located behind the Exxon Store on SR 121 South. A clerk there called police on April 4 after noting a 2001 Mercury lacking a license plate and identification number was parked in a rear lot. The ID num ber was later determined and a computer check revealed it was stolen between March 15-28 in the Seminole County city. Police arrested a Maxville man early on April 3 for domestic battery of his girlfriend during an argument at a residence on Cow Pen Rd. Christopher Cole, 22, alleged ly stood over Jamie Sigers, 34, of Macclenny and choked her, then fled on foot from the area when Deputy Chad Montean arrived about 4:15 am. Initially, Ms. Sigers told the officer she was struck by another male at the scene, but that ver sion was contradicted by witness Shauna Calloway, who lives at the address and saw the confron tation. The suspect was tracked down by the sheriffs department K-9 Tango in a nearby wooded area. He said he could not recall at tacking his girlfriend, who had abrasions on her neck. Mr. Cole was also charged with resisting arrest. In other arrests, Jason Smith, 29, was charged with domestic battery on his brother-in-law Marvin Wasdin, 52, at their resi dence on E. Ohio in Macclenny the evening of April 2. Mr. Smith allegedly went into a bedroom where the victim was sleeping and struck him on the side of the head. St. Mary was arrested on a simi lar charge for striking a 16-yearold relative on the head at their residence off CR 127 the morning of April 5. The two were reportedly argu ing over operation of an air con ditioner. complaints for domestic bat tery against Charles Roberts, 46, and his wife Tracy Roberts, 40, following a confrontation near Macedonia the evening of April 5 after they left a cook-out party. plaints for battery and criminal mischief against Megan Dolison, 22, and Lakeyta Givens, 32, fol lowing a fight on Five Churches Rd. the evening of April 5. at Northeast Florida State Hos pital was named in a complaint for battery after striking another male patient, 54, in the mouth the evening of April 4. A Jacksonville woman was booked at county jail the after noon of April 2 for resisting a county deputy with violence dur ing a traffic stop on Woodlawn Rd. Cynthia Crossland, 51, al legedly pushed Deputy Steven Smith when he attempted to take her cell phone after asking her multiple times to discontinue a call. She also managed to get out of handcuffs after being placed in the officers vehicle. Deputy Smith said he stopped Ms. Crossland after receiving a report she was driving carelessly on South 6th St. about 5:15. She told the officer she was depressed and did not know where she was. In another, unrelated arrest in the same location, Robert Devries, 27, of Middleburg was charged with disorderly con duct for harassing patrons at the Econolodge and nearby Raceway station. Deputy Clements Leo said he responded to a suspicious person call about 7:40 the morning of April 4 and questioned a disori ented Mr. Devries, who said he was drinking the previous night and had passed out in a parked truck. Other witnesses at the motel and gas station told the officer that the partially clothed suspect approached them acting in an ag gressive manner. City was charged with disorderly intoxication the evening of April 4 when she attempted to ride a bicycle away from SR 121 and Jeff Starling Rd. Deputy Chris Walker re sponded to a disturbance call at the nearby fire station and said Ms. Staley appeared to have been in an altercation. She became un ruly and resisted the officers at tempts to prevent her from get ting on the bike. Mary was arrested the evening of April 6 on a Charlton County warrant for violating probation. Deputy Johnny Hodges learned of the warrant after ques tioning Ms. Ellis during a traffic stop on CR 23A at Macedonia. police was filed on Christopher Bellflower, 39, following an in cident at his residence on Black Jack Rd. south of Macclenny. Deputy Randy Davis said he responded to a report by a men tal health professional and went to the address the afternoon of April 4. Mr. Bellflower, who apparent ly had not been taking prescribed medication, confronted the of ficer and acted in a threatening manner. Cpl. Davis fired two Tas er shots that did not subdue him. Deputies Brad Dougherty and Billy Miller responded as back up and subdued the suspect. Lt. Miller fired several missed shots at Mr. Bellflowers pit bull that attacked Deputy Davis. The deputy was treated at the scene for dog bites to fingers and his right forearm. Mr. Bellflower was confined to a mental health facility under the states Baker Act. The Baker County Code En forcement Board resolved this week to ask the county commis sion to condemn a two-tract par cel on James Britt Rd. as a health and safety nuisance. The CEB received a complaint last year about the condition of an abandoned house, trailer home and shed on the property and tabled action on a violation because the owner of record Pe ter Juba is deceased and does not appear to have any living heirs. The code board in a Febru ary workshop leaned toward pe titioning the county to raze the buildings as a health hazard due to refuse and unsafe conditions, and re-affirmed that position on April 9 via a unanimous vote fol lowing a motion by Chris Gazes. Earlier, board counsel Will Sexton repeated his reservations about proceeding with an en forcement order because the de fendants heirs would first have to be notified. We cant get past the notice problem for the CEB to take ac tion, said Mr. Sexton. Theres no human being to receive the notice. Certificates for unpaid taxes have been sold on the property the last four years, and the board had the option of approaching the first-in-line purchaser who would eventually acquire the property. It rejected that strategy as more complicated than direct ly approaching the county board, which has condemnation power. In the only other case on the CEBs April agenda, the board recommended to the county commission a fine reduction in the case of Roger Harvey of Mac clenny, who was cited in 2010 for lack of trailer skirting. Mr. Harvey said he was un aware of the CEB enforcement order for non-compliance un til informed the daily fine had run its course and amounted to $2760. The property has since come into compliance. Under questioning by CEB member David Theus, Mr. Har vey affirmed his signature on the certified letter informing him of the violation in August of that year was his, but said he didnt remember signing it. He argued the fine was exces sive for a relatively minor viola tion on the rear of his trailer on Southern States Nursery Rd. and at one point asserted that he didnt feel a fine was warranted at all. On a motion by Mr. Theus, the board recommended the com mission reduce the amount by half and give Mr. Harvey 90 days to pay it. The CEB in the past has agreed to fine reductions in cases of hardship. Mr. Harvey indicat ed that until recently he has been out of work and relied on rela tives to make payments on the property. JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com Its been three years since the Rankings and each year Baker County has lost ground in the statistics tied to the length and quality of life of its citizens. The so-called health out comes ranking for 2012, re leased last week by the Univer sity of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation along with the status of counties na tionwide, places Baker County 63rd among Floridas 67 coun ties. The health outcomes rank ing consists of five measures that gauge how many people die before the age of 75, how many babies are born with low birth weights and how many people self-report having poor physical or mental health on a telephone survey. This year Baker County slipped one place in the health outcomes numbers after falling two spots in 2011 from its initial ranking of 60th in the state in 2010. Baker Countys health fac tors slotting, which presum ably point to the causes of posi tive or negative health outcomes, dropped three spots to 53rd in Florida, but remains better than the 57th place the county re ceived in 2010. The health factors section does not account for genetic or biological health factors, but uses two dozen other measures to de termine four rankings for health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors and the physical environment, respec tively. This year Baker County fell one place from 64th to 65th in health behaviors, largely due to a spike in the chlamydia rate and deaths from motor vehicle crashes. The increases were tem pered by slight declines in the teen birth, smoking and obesity rates. Baker County slid six spots to 48th in clinical care, two notch es to 30th in the social and eco nomic category, and 15 places to 50th in the physical environmen tal areas. Does such a track record dis cials? Of course not, said health department director Kerry Dun lavey this week, adding that the on public health organizations, but the community as a whole, including municipal and county governments, businesses and And its peoples behaviors, she said. Its important for us to get the information and educa tion out there, but people have to make their own choices. The health department em ploys a handful of health educa tors who coordinate programs to combat smoking, obesity and diabetes, the latter of which has been operating for a decade or more. The diabetes rate in Baker County fell from 15.4 percent in 2002 to 10.5 percent in 2007, according to statistics from the Florida Department of Health. Ms. Dunlavey said such pro grams appear to be effective in putting downward pressure on the prevalence of such ills and the health department and its af are endeavoring to reach a larger segment of the local population using the Internet. She hopes the launching of websites like www.healthybak er.org and more recently www. outspokn.com will spark more interest in healthy living from a larger cross-section of county stakeholders. Its really social marketing getting that information and education out there in a way that people will be interested enough to want to go to those sites, she said. But were just starting out and we dont have a tremendous amount of resources to get a web designer. But were doing our very best and any suggestions we would really like. leased during National Public Health Week on April 1-8, aim to give the general public informa tion about whats making people sick or healthy, both at home and in other counties nationwide. St. Johns County, for instance, was deemed the healthiest coun ty in Florida while neighboring Union County to the south the least healthy. least two years old, which means the community may be healthier today than in 2009 or 2010, the most recent years of data used to compile the county health rank ings in Florida. But when todays data gets in corporated into Baker Countys health rankings in the future, what will it show? I think its going to say that often times where you live mat ters, your race matters, poverty certainly matters, and whether you have funding to sustain pro grams matter, said Ms. Dun lavey, alluding to the more than $1 million lost by the health de partment during the last five years. Its unclear whether her agen cys tighter budget will have a negative impact on the countys health statistics. I dont know, she said. It sounds like you could think that rationally, but do people in the community and other agencies and city and county government do they take the opportunities to promote health? That will be a question theyll have to answer. The director credited the school district and private physi cians for their efforts to improve the health of local residents. Since the obstetrics and gy necological services were elimi nated at the health department, out-of-county doctors have re sponded by continuing to offer such healthcare at other loca tions, most recently at Macclen ny Pediatrics on S. 6th St. The school district partnered with the health department for its anti-childhood obesity initia tive in 2009-10 at Macclenny El ementary School. The program, which helped garner the department a Prom ising Practice recognition from the National Association of last month, incorporated veg etable gardens in lessons about healthy eating and nutrition in For more information about the county health rankings here and elsewhere, please visit www. countyhealthrankings.org.

ursday, April 12, 2012 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, April 12, 2012 BOB GERARD | FACULTY The Hunger Games was in the high school library for about a year before I read it. After finish ing the book, I immediately rec ommended it to everyone I know and picked up its sequel, Catch ing Fire It was addictive. By the third book in the trilogy, author Su zanne Collins had really discov ered her writing chops and was nominated for a National Book Award. So, I was naturally very excit ed by the movie. It is a very cine matic book and the movie looked very promising. I wasnt particularly im pressed with its casting howev er. In the book, heroine Katniss Everdine lives in District 12 an impoverished place that looks a lot like a post-nuclear West Vir ginia. Everdine, played by Jen nifer Lawrence, isnt quite as an orexic a 16-year-old as she is in the book. At that point I had to shake my head and remind myself that I was watching a movie and not re-reading the book. After that, I was fine and really enjoyed it. It was tense, relatively true to the story, with several good char acterizations and well acted by the leads. They did a very good job of presenting a place that seemed familiar as if it could be the USA but not completely familiar. The burden of the movie falls on Lawrence, who cut her teeth in X-Men First Class and Win ters Bone She is excellent. Dif ferent from the book certainly, but she paints a clear character ization of Katniss. If you havent read the book, the plot line goes like this. In the not too distant future there is a revolution that was put down by the Capital. The 13 Districts that revolted were punished. One was nuked District 13 and the other 12 districts must once a year send two tributes, ages 12-18 to take part in a fight to the death called The Hunger Games. Think American Idol on steroids with weapons. Katniss takes the place of her 12-year-old sister, Prim. She must learn to survive and play the game. Her erstwhile partner from District 12 is Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), a bakers son who has a crush on Katniss. They are tutored by District 12s only-ever winner, Haymitch Abertnathy (Woody Harrelson), a drunk who will barely talk to them until they prove them selves. Katniss is uniquely qualified for the games, and with the help of a cunning stylist named Cin na (Lenny Karvitz) she is made ready to take the stage. Her prep aration for The Hunger Games is one of the high points of the movie. Kravitz, Harrelson and Stan ley Tucci as the master of cere monies are all excellent. Kravitz steals every scene he is in and Harrelson is utterly convinc ing as Haymitch. Tucci is always good. The movie has abundant spe cial effects, but they dont drive it. The story drives the movie and director Gary Ross does a good job with the narrative.

PHOTO COURTESY OF JON MOBLEY Scouts hike 50-mile Florida Trail Over spring break, Boy Scout Troop 150 completed a 50-mile hike on the Florida Trail. The trek began on March 31 at Ste phen Foster State Park. Five days and four nights later, eight of the original 10 hikers ended the journey near the entrance to Suwannee River State Park on US 90 west of Live Oak. It was awesome to see a bunch of boys strap packs to their backs and hike 50 miles, said troop leader Jon Mobley. To be able to accomplish that at their age, it was just awesome to see. The group carried their food and puried water along the way. An adult in the group injured a toe, and after persisting and traveling a little farther, he left the group. A young man on the trek twisted his ankle and could not continue as well. It was fun, but it was very demanding, said Mr. Mobley. Pictured above (from left) are Robert Connor, Trey Connor, Jon Mobley, Jonathan Mobley, Jordan Johnson, Brandon Jones and Stanley Johnson. Troop 150 is planning its summer camp in July at Camp Shands near Melrose, FL. Young men between the ages of 11 and 17 are welcome. Please call Mr. Mobley at (904) 228-2025 for more information. Community Hospice of North east Florida is encouraging Bak er County residents to complete their advance healthcare direc tives, an effort that coincides with April 16, 2012 as National Healthcare Decisions Day. Despite recent gains in public awareness of the medical need for advance care planning, stud ies indicate that most Americans have not documented their de cisions about their healthcare wishes in the event that they can not speak for themselves. Advance care planning is so much more than securing legal documents, said Susan PonderStansel, president and CEO of Community Hospice. Advance care planning is about thinking, talking and preparing so that health decisions are made in a manner that the individual de sires. It is very important that those discussions take place be fore a health crisis occurs. In Florida, advance directives can include any of three docu ments: written or oral, made when you are mentally competent, to in struct your doctor whether you do or do not want life-sustaining procedures if you become termi nally ill, have an end-stage condi tion or are in a persistent vegeta tive state. It spells out what you want done if you are dying or in an irreversible coma, and cannot communicate your wishes. one you designate in advance to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to com municate your own wishes. If you do not do this, a proxy will be as signed to you according to Flori da Statute 764. allowing you to name a person to handle your legal and medi cal affairs if you become unable to do so for yourself. This person acts on your behalf according to the specific responsibilities and duties outlined in the document, which may be very broad or lim ited to certain specific acts. As part of this initiative, Com munity Hospice is partnering with WJCT Public Broadcasting to present Consider the Conver sation. The documentary sheds light on the 21st Century Ameri can struggle with communica tion and preparation at lifes end. Throughout the film, there are intimate accounts of the emo tional, spiritual, physical and so cial burdens associated with the historical shift that has occurred with dying. WJCT will air the program on Friday, April 13, at 9 pm, and on Thursday, April 19 at 8 pm. some plot problems; the original choosing of the tributes is not nearly intense enough and some things are not fully explained. Overall, however, it is a good telling of the story. Fans of the book should be pleased with only details to keep them griping. Lawrence is very good through out and once she tossed into the ring and the games begin, it is edge of the seat stuff. Peeta is not as fully rounded a character, but doesnt have to be. If you never read the book there are only a few places where you might be confused, such as when Katniss raises her hand in a three fingered salute. Beyond that it will keep you entertained.

Your words of encouragement, your prayers and many, many acts of kind ness will always be cherished.

PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Wildcat lifters (clockwise from top left) are Hunter Sullivan, Blake Mills and Josh Smallwood. Kendrick Singleton is pictured at bottom left. Twelve Wildcat weightlifters qualified for spots in the selec tion process for the state tourna ment during the final sectional meet for the 1A section April 5 at BCHS. Matanzas, Eastside, Palat ka, Pedro Menendez, Keystone, Santa Fe, Bradford, Union, Fort White, Oak Hall and Baker County competed for slots in the state tournament. Lifters who placed in the top four qualified for a chance to go to state. Coach Scott McDonald ex plained the way that lifters were chosen for the tournament: The first place finisher gets the au tomatic bid to the state meet. The other lifters placing in the top four have their totals put in a pool with the other sections around the state to see if they are one of the top ten totals left in their weight class from around the state to get a bid to the state meet. Hopefully we will get that list by the end of the day today. I am looking for us to send 9 or 10 to the state meet. Dalton Jackson placed third in the 129-pound weight class. Bri an Goldsmith was second place in the 139 class. In the 154 class, Dalton Dyal placed third. Darius Green won the 169 class with Rickie Tharpe in sec ond place. Hunter Sullivan won the 183 class and Talmadge Turner was second. In the 199 class, Kendrick Sin gleton placed second and Josh Smallwood was fourth place. Jeremy Wannamaker won the 219 class and Terry Givens was first place in the 238 class. Blake Mills won the heavyweight clas sification. Dozen Cat liers may go to state BOB GERARD | SPORTS High school skippers and bathroom smokers sweat profusely at the name John Staples. Middle school trouble makers feel the same way about in-school detention boss Austin Pride. But now the BCHS assistant principal and BCMS teacher can add the title The Men Fish Fear Staples, Pride, Todd Hunt and Allen Markley hauled in the top red fish in the Florida Times-Union Redfish Roundup the first weekend in April. The fish had 23 spots, giving the Baker County anglers first place and a $7200 check. It was a nasty day for fishing, with cool temperatures and light rain turning to thunderstorms, and 283 entrees sought the right place to fish to bring in a winner. Pride, who has his own inshore charter business and runs the inschool detention at BCMS, was the boats captain. The storms had driv en much of the competition back to shore and with more bad weather rolling in by the minute the local team decided to call it a day as well. But they held on for a few more minutes and it paid off as they hooked the fish that gave them the title and the winnings. We decided to pack up and go weigh in. We caught that fish in the last 10 minutes before we came in, Pride told the Times-Union We would have been bringing in one with five spots. But we got lucky when we caught that last one. Staples agrees. Austin does a great job. Lightning was popping all around us and Austin cast one last time and pulled it in. It had so many spots we werent even sure it was a red fish. It wasnt the biggest fish of the tournament, but it had the most spots and with redfish, thats what counts. The anglers didnt think that their catch would hold up since they weighed in early in the day, but the other boats didnt come close, with the second place fish having just 12 spots. It was the first attempt for the Baker County team, and beginners luck certainly paid off. Staples quipped that if it continued maybe hed turn in his notice and get an Outdoor Network fishing show. Thats bad news for the fish, good news for the school skippers. BOB GERARD | SPORTS Former Wildcat quarterback Thomas Sirk took a big step when he decided to leave BCHS early and enroll at Duke University. The Blue Devils top recruit at quarterback had finished all his high school class work and thought the extra time spent learning Coach David Cutliffes sys tem would pay off in the long run. He attended class es, studied film along side future NFL Hall of Famer Peyton Man ning, who was rehab bing his neck injury in Durham, and soaked up every scrap of information he could. It paid off March 31 when Sirk threw for a pair of touchdowns and caught another in the annual Blue Devil spring football game. Sirk is one of five quarterbacks on Cutliffes roster, and though he is far down the depth chart he showed a lot of potential as he helped lead the White team to a 38-24 victo ry over the Blue squad. Sirk played much of the second and third quarters and threw touchdown passes of 15 and 28 yards. He also took to the field at tight end and wide receiver and caught a 4-yard touchdown toss. Sirk finished his ro tation completing 11 of 13 passes for 90 yards and two scores. He was 3 for 21 rushing the ball. Thomas Sirk PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Chris Waddell (above) throws a runner out.
