More than 50 roadways were reportedly impassable and many of them barricaded due to standing A roughly 25-foot stretch of the newly-paved Cow Pen Road near Tennessee Street in the central county washed away overnight and a four-wheeler got mired in the standing water later in the day. County Manager C.J. Thompson urged residents to observe road closure signs and avoid attempts to traverse standing water. He said the four-wheeler accident injured one of two riders and happened when the driver rode around the Cow Pen closure sign and fell into the crevasse. It was something that could have easily been prevented, he said Interstate 10 was shut down between the US 90 interchange west of Sanderson and I-75 with trafthoroughfares like CRs 125, 127, 229, 228 and Mud Lake Road were closed throughout the day, further in their homes or away from them. Were focusing on keeping the paved roads open and safe, county road director Robert Fletcher said while updating commissioners on the state of the countys roadways at the 11 am meeting with the board. Water is running so fast its like rapids, he said of CR 125 near Odis Yarbrough Road. Its not safe to cross. The county deployed road graders in effort to slope out washed out dirt roads, Mr. Fletcher said, but most road repairs will have to wait until after the rain stops. Once the storm passes, it could be several weeks be fore most roads are back to nor mal, he said. A sewer line collapsed early Tuesday on the east side of South 6th Street in Macclenny just south of Minnesota Avenue as well. Util ity crews soon installed a bypass and monitored the site throughout the day. City workers also pumped out dale Lane to protect homes there. As county commissioners con vened at the county administration building, two buckets were catching water from the leaking ceiling, the toilets in the building were out of order and the manholes outside were spewing sewer water. Clerk of Courts Al Fraser said water had seeped into the courthouse basement, including an electrical and AC room, but the structure was otherwise fairing well early Tuesday.

No one was injured and there were no arrests. A warrant was issued for Martius Holland, 29, of Macclenny for allegedly discharg ing a pistol several times into the ground during a confrontation on MLK Dr. the afternoon with Ricky Tisdale, 30, also of Macclenny. Mr. Tisdale told Deputy Jacob Satterwhite he was at his fathers residence when approached by the suspect seek ing a fight. Witness Johnnie Hollings of Macclenny said at one point Mr. Holland took a pistol from Dontay Johnson the ground, threatening to kill Mr. Tisdale. One witness said shots may another estimated 45-50 children were in a nearby crowd The suspect and Mr. John son then drove off in a 2002 blue Nissan, possibly to the Lake City area. The deputy speculated it was the same vehicle that several males were in the previous evening on Gilford Davis Rd. west of Glen St. Mary during an incident where shots In two other incidents a half hour apart the evening of June 22, the same man accused of striking a 16-yaer-old boy on the head with a pistol on Dolphin St. in Sanderson was among three men who claimed they were shot at near MLK Dr. Michael Jones, 38, of Glen was named in a complaint for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for striking the youth, causing a minor lacera tion. The allegation was made by the boys mother. About 9 pm, Mr. Jones, Carmus Shaw, 31, of Sanderson and a 16-year-old said they were in a vehicle when Chester Hadley, 24, of Macclenny shot at them from a gray vehicle.

The move was prompted on the evening of June 25 after commissioners heard from a property owner who was or which included annual penalty charges, for failing to install skirting on a mobile home in Glen St. Mary in 2003. The owner at the time, Alice Crawford, claimed that the skirting was installed in August 2003, about a month afthe violation. She also denied any knowledge of the countys placement of a lien on the property for failure to comply until recently. It was a big shock to me, Mrs. Crawford told commissioners. My husband put the skirting up. This is a big misunderstanding. Her husband, Billy Crawford, told commissioners that he put that skirting on myself on August 25, 2003. However, an inspection of the home at 14233 Pecan Circle on October 13, 2003 revealed that the skirting had not been installed as previously ordered, said Bob Hathcox, county zonMr. Hathcox told commissioners that Mrs. Crawford had that the case would be heard by the Code Enforcement Board on the evening of October 13, 2003.

In this space last week The Press publisher Jim McGauley called on the county commission to exercise due diligence in evaluating the two sand mining proposals it delayed taking action on until August. Thats great advice consider ing how much water the mines intend to use. Water is a public resource and perhaps the most important natural resource be hind the air we breath. But heres why I would go even further, and say the county should hire this independent third-party engineer, that the mining companies have so generously pledged to pay for. Commissioners would be wise to ensure this expert digs deeper (pardon the pun) than the St. Johns River Water Manage ment District appears to be going with its permitting process. After scanning some of the permit documents that Old Castle Southern Group, which hopes to suck 2.88 million gallons per day from the lower aquifer for at least a few years after startup, its apparent that the modeling done to predict the impact on other wells nearby uses old information that may not show the truest picture of reality. Some of the data is 17 years old. The City of Macclennys consulting engineer Frank Darabi has said as much in letters and the city have asked that Old Castle Southerns consultants drill holes in the ground to see what the aquifers condition is today. But the water management district doesnt appear to feel thats necessary. Old Castles consultant, which is applying for the withdrawal permit on the companys behalf, clearly states in the introduction section of the permit application that it used a district-provided model from I wonder how many wells have been drilled here since the mid-90s? The application says the consultant used the outdated data based on its knowledge of district requirements and discussions with district staff. In other words, you, the district, said its cool to use information gathered nearly two decades ago, so here you go. If you read a little further, youll see the results of Old Castle Southerns simulation, meant to show the affect its planned withdrawal would have on nearby wells. They show draw downs of less than This is a story of the country boy back from the big city. I was in New York City the past week and as difficult as it is to believe me being a drama person and all Im happy to be home. I have friends who are on the road all the time and I dont know how they manage it. I like NYC, and when I was in my 20s I thought it would be so exciting to live there. Now Im not so sure. Exciting, yes, but aggravating as well. I can understand New Yorkers never bothering to get a drivers license. Mass transit is the way to go. Its not the actual driving so much, Ive done that in NYC, Chicago and worst of all, Naples, Italy. Its nerve wracking, and the worst One place I passed near Times Square was $8.50 a half hour. There is plenty to like about NYC and plenty that is disturbing. It is very diverse. Within half a dozen languages you recognize and another half dozen you dont. Youll see women dressed like high fashion models and others living in a cardboard box on a subway grate. The food can be amazing and delicious, or overpriced and average. One day it might be 75 degrees and breezy and the next 98 and scorching. It was in the high 90s two of the days we were there and New Yorkers were miserable. It was something us Floridians experience on a regular basis. For the locals, however, I worried for some of their health and safety they were so red-faced. I particularly marveled at the Hasidic Jews in their long coats, hats and vests. They were baking for their religion. One of the exciting things about being in New York is that you never know what you are going to see. We stumbled on a shooting for Gossip Girl when we were strolling on 23rd St. by the Flatiron Building, New About three blocks later, eagle-eyed wife Kelley nudged me in the ribs. Did you see you see who just walked past us? Who? Jay Z. I turned around and sure enough, it was the hip-hop mega star and husband of Beyonce strolling down the street in khaki shorts and a pastel green T-shirt, completely unmolested by the locals. Kelley, an avid People Magazine reader, said he lived in the neighborhood. We were in New York with our Aunt June and her granddaughter Molly Nelson. June had been to NYC before, but Molly had not and it was fun to see it all through her eyes. Kelley is an old pro and has been to the city dozens of times so she knows all the ins and outs and places to see. We went to all the touristy spots and saw some Broadway shows. I loved everything I saw this trip. I got to watch James Earl Jones, Candice Bergen, John Laroquette, Eric McCormick (Will in Will and Grace) and Angela Landsbury in The Best Man. Amazing. The Million Dollar Quartet, about the one night Carl Perkins, Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis all performed together at Sun Records in Memphis. The actors all played live and it was remarkable to see them bring those icons to life. The highlight of the trip, however, was see ing Porgy and Bess. Kelley acted in college with Norm Lewis, who was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actor as Porgy. Norm is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and hasnt forgotten what it took to get to Broadway. He and Kelley were in Grease together at LCCC and when she is in NYC they get together after the show. Some times its just at the stage door for a quick picture but this time he stayed behind and brought us up on stage after the show. Aunt June was, as she put it, star struck. Norm took pictures with her, introduced her to other cast members and wrote a nice note in her program. Later, Kelley and I had dinner with him at a back table in Joe Allens restaurant down the street from the theatre. He talked about old times and what he planned to do after the production closed. He had auditioned that morning for a TV pilot and a movie with Russell Crowe and Collin Farrell. A producer who is bringing The Nutty Professor to Broadway chatted with him, as did the star of Street Car Named Desire and Jessie Martin, the black detective on Law and Order. It was really an amazing evening and a nice capper to our trip. When it ended, however, I was ready to leave the hustle and bustle behind and sleep somewhere quiet where you wont hear garbage trucks at 2 am or police sirens at all hours of the night. Its good to be home. tice was not returned to the county and Mrs. Crawford did not attend the hearing. The board found her in viola tion and gave her 10 days to come into compliance or face a fine per day thereafter, up to a maximum of 180 days. On October 27, 2003, after receiving no response from the owner, an order of enforcement and notice of lien was recorded. The original fine of $1,840, plus a $25 recording fee, grew at the rate of 10 percent annually to $3,969.18. Mr. Hathcox said Mrs. Crawford was instructed to con tact the county when skirting was installed on the trailer but he said she never called. Again, Mrs. Crawford disput happened. I did call and talk to some lady and let them know, she said. I would never let it go this far. Mr. Hathcox said that as far as he knew nobody had ever called to let the county know that the skirting had been installed. Commissioners said it appeared as though someone was not being completely truthful. Commission Chairman Gor don Crews said that if he had received an order of enforcement and notice of lien on his property, I would have come down here (to the county building depart ment), to deal with the matter in person. Commissioner Michael Crews asked Mr. Hathcox if there had been any inspection of the Crawford residence after October 13, 2003, to which Mr. Hathcox replied: No, not until about a week and a half ago. It was then, he the trailer. At some point, Alice Crawfords daughter, Casey Crawford, was added to the deed and recently entered in an agreement to sell the property to a neighbor. Thats when the family discov ered the lien. the violation, Casey Crawford told commissioners, adding that she was trying to sell the property to buy a newer mobile home on land for her and her young children. Alice Crawford said she had given her daughter my life savings to help put her and her children in a new home. She said she works a minimum-wage job and her daughter is unemployed and has health problems herself. Casey Crawford said she only had about $500 in the bank and could not afford to pay the county ried that she wouldnt be able to sell her property and buy the new Commissioners were sympathetic to her plight but refused to waive the fine entirely. In stead, they ordered her to pay was recommended by the Code Enforcement Board and County Commissioner Adam Giddens. The vote was 4-1, with Commissioner Mark Hartley holding out for a greater reduction. It seems like its going to be a burden on her even at $1,800, Mr. Hartley said. Commissioner Jimmy An derson agreed, alluding to a very similar zoning violation case recently in which he and fellow commissioners overruled the Code Enforcement Board $2,820 to $187.84. We were a lot more generous then, Mr. Anderson said, referring to a case involving a man who took 20 months to comply with the countys trailer-skirting requirement. In that case, the Code Enforcement Board had half: to $1,410. During the discussion leading commissioners said some pro cedural changes were in order to prevent similar zoning violation cases from continuing unresolved for many years. Maybe we need to strengthen the policies, Commissioner Mi chael Crews said. Commissioner Giddens sug properties 90 days or so after a lien is imposed to see if violators have come into compliance instead of letting a case drag on for years like this one. Meanwhile, with two similar cases in which violators have rereductions, Im afraid were going to start a snowball, Mr. Giddens said. In other business commissioners: dinance that enables owners of vast timberland acreage to sell thousands of acres for residential development without adhering to costly subdivision regulations. The ordinance allows large tracts of land to be divided any number of times into individual parcels 20 acres or larger. Current land development regulations require large tracts of land divided more than twice to meet subdivision requirements, including platting requirements and paved roads. A key provision in the new ordinance is that parcels resulting from a sale must have direct access to an existing county road, paved or unpaved. Only one residential structure would be permitted on each new 20-acre parcel. are about 50,000 acres of timberland in very few ownerships in the county that could fall under the new regulations. It is anticipated that 20-acre and larger parcels will continue to be used as timberland and can also serve as single residences with minimal impacts to the existing dirt roads, according to a staff report recommending approval of the ordinance. use and zoning change on a 2.5 acre parcel on Shirley Road from agricultural to very low density residential. The property was divided in 1991 but the division resulted in the 2.5 acre size not con forming to the 7.5 acre minimum lot size required in its present zoning category. Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston said the requested change was recommended favorably by both the Development Review Committee and the Land Planning Agency. request for a small scale land use and zoning change to make compliant for residential uses is con sistent with the comprehensive plan, Mr. Preston said. use and zoning change on a 5.69 acre parcel from agricultural to low density residential in order to allow the owner to divide the property into two separate lots. The parcel is on Flintlock Drive adjacent to the Seminole Ridge Unit II subdivision, about a mile east of CR 127 North. The property has been this size and shape since the 1950s, giving it a legal lot of record status, is less than the required 7.5 acres and is, therefore, a legal non-conforming lot, Mr. Preston said, adding that the new zoning would make the property compliant. Beyond the deluge of chatter about the storm, road closures and the like, we also had discussion on Facebook this week regarding the Pledge of Allegiance in schools. Heres a look at excerpts from the discussions that transpired:Jay Canaday: I have a question for those who have kids in the Baker County school system: Do they say the Pledge of Allegiance or sing the National Anthem (or another patriotic song) in school here every morning? Kathleen Johnson: My grand kids have gone to school here and yes, they said the pledge and sang the National Anthem and even Lee Greenwoods song ... just dont tell Obama and the rest of the liberal socialists. Jessica Brown: As long as it is optional instead of required, why would anyone object to it? So-called liberal socialists or not? There is no need for there to be a requirement for the recitation, but I see no harm in continuing it as an optional student action. I went through the Baker County school system from 1982-1995 or so and it was said every day with students able to opt-out at will by simply not participating. I have no idea what they are doing now, but I dont know why they would have changed that policy.

Jessica Brown: For anyone who thinks the pledge should be mandatory: The pledge wasnt created until 1892 (adopted in 1942) and that the freedoms it celebrates are the extremely American values of dissent, discussion, debate and democracy. No one should be forced to say the pledge; that is part of the freedoms that our country provides. I support everyone who debates and protests as part of the political process from either side.

Thats minor; nearly undetectable, the companys repre sentatives say. But theres some key elements missing from this picture, that should tell county commissioners to proceed with an abundance of caution. Government regulations are often written by the industries they regulate. And rules gov erning water are some of the hardest fought restrictions in Florida, as the recent multiyear wrangling over federal nutrient limits that impact water quality demonstrate. Florida legislators have drastically cut funding for water districts. Given that the prevailing wisdom in Tallahassee is to rollback environmental regulations on business, I bet district engineers are not encouraged to scrutinize appli cants as much as they have in years past. Oh yeah; then theres the fact that Old Castle Southerns withdrawal permit doesnt account for the other 2-3 million gallons per day that another company, E.R. Jahna, Inc., in tends to pump from the aquifer across town during roughly the same period. The latter company has yet to seek a permit from the district. Its entirely conceivable there will be no impacts to existing wells that supply water to the City of Macclenny and the rest of the countys homes and businesses.

The resignations, which included two department heads at the high school, are not uncommon for this time of year, said Robin Mobley, associate superintendent of human resources. But, she said, it is unusual for the school board to approve so many resignations 17 in all at a single meeting, as it did the evening of June 18. concludes June 30, which also marks the end of annual employment contracts. That may have spurred the resignations, Mrs. Mobley said. Mrs. Mobley herself was among those resigning, though shell remain with the district under a new contract for the coming year. The administrator has allowed in the Florida Retire ment Systems Deferred Retirement Option Program, or DROP; but wants to continue working. I love what I do and I think I can continue to be an asset to the district, said Mrs. Mobley. She said shell take a pay cut to remain with the district, earning the equivalent of a firstyear teachers salary, plus the bonus that district-level employees receive. She wasnt sure exactly how much the reduction would be, however. I havent even looked at it, said Mrs. Mobley. The other resigna tions occurred for a host of reasons. Some teachers are tak ing maternity leave, one is the spouse a military serviceman who was transferred, and many like Gary Cook, director of the high schools popular culinary academy, are retiring. Mrs. Mobley said the retirements may be the result of the school boards decision a few years ago to discontinue health insurance contributions for employees retiring after June 30, 2012. Those retiring before the cutoff will still receive the subsidy. lot of it, she said. Angela Hunter, the former head of the high schools science department, resigned to take a position with the St. Johns Coun ty school district. She resides in St. Augustine and commuted nearly 70 miles for the last four years to work here. She even stayed with a students family for a few days during the school week to save money on gas. Its been bitter sweet leaving Baker County, she said. I love my administrators and students. Theres been so many positive changes made in the last four years, immensely positive chang es. Mrs. Hunter praised the efforts of Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson and BCHS principal Tom Hill in supporting science programs, raising academic standards and taking the high school from a Dand C-rated school to a B-rated school. But the move will mean a higher salary and the ability to stay close to home while starting her family in the coming years, she said.

For instance, Macclenny resident Richard Willis purchased a foreclosed warehouse property south of Inter state 10 this week for $400,000 from American Enterprise Bank. The property at 9755 S. SR 121 was bought by George and Pamela Lyons in 2005 from William S. (Shep) Ellisson for $500,000. Its remained vacant for the last few years, but was annexed into the city lim its in 2010. Mr. Willis is the coowner of M&R Specialty Trailers & Trucks, Inc. of Jacksonville along with Bob Pierson, also of Macclenny.

New to the inside of the fast food restaurant at 1620 S. 6th St. will be a dessert bar and other upgrades. Burger King is one of four locations within the City of Macclenny that have been issued commercial remodeling permits so far this year. A hair salon and tattoo shop, both on South 6th Street; and the former office of Dr. Charles Scarborough on South 5th Street now occupied by Jacksonville Primary Healthcare, have pulled permits since January.

Theyre the absolute best story tellers, said Ms. Davis, a soon-to-be 10th grader at Baker County High school, by e-mail last week. She began volunteering at the facility at the request of her mother, but was enthusiastic about it nonetheless. Most teens wouldnt want to spend their time volunteering, especially their summer vacation! Ms. Davis wrote. Howev er, I enjoy volunteering at Macclenny Nursing and Rehab. When shes not volunteer ing, the youth enjoys spending time with family and friends and soaking up the suns rays at the beach. After high school, Ms. Davis plans to study nursing in college and pursue a career in pediatrics. I love children and feel like Id do very well at it, she said. I think it would be something Id love.

Kitching City of Macclenny / Enterprise East / Macclenny II 2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality ReportThis report will be mailed to customers only upon request and is also available at City Waste Water Treatment Plant and on the Citys website at www.cityofmacclenny.comWere pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from five wells. The wells draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Our water is obtained from ground water sources and is aerated and chlorinated for disinfection purposes. Aqua Mag is added for corrosion control at City of Macclenny. In 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There is one potential source of contamination identified for this system with a moderate susceptibility level. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Richard Harris or Walter Sloan at 904-259-4491. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month at City Hall at 7pm. The City of Macclenny routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated oth erwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.City of MacclennyIf present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Macclenny is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiologi cal contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at City of Macclenny would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insur ing the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. **Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides and herbicides, and volatile organic contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)MCL Violation Y/N Level Detected Range of Results MCLG MCL Likely Source of ContaminationRadiological Contaminants/City of MacclennyAlpha emitters (pCi/L) 6/2011 N 5.4 ND-5.4 0 15 Erosion of natural deposits Radium 226 + 228 or combined radium (pCi/L) 6/2011 N 0.6 NA 0 5 Erosion of natural depositsContaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)MCL Violation Y/N Level Detected Range of Results MCLG MCL Likely Source of ContaminationInorganic ContaminantsAntimony (ppb) 6/2011 N 0.3 ND-0.3 6 6 Discharge from petroleum reneries; re retardants; ceramics; electronics; solder Arsenic (ppb) 6/2011 N 1.5 ND-1.5 0 10 Erosion of natural deposits; runoff from orchards; runoff from glass and electronics production wastes Barium (ppm) 6/2011 N 0.016 0.0120.016 2 2 Discharge of drilling wastes; discharge from metal reneries; erosion of natural deposits Flouride (ppm) 6/2011 N 0.88 0.46-0.88 4 4.0 Erosion of natural deposits; discharge from fertilizer and alumi num factories.

When I do, I feel obligated to tell you about it. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is just that kind of movie. It is not a summer action movie or a teen romantic comedy. In fact, it is hard to fit into any real cat egory. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is just fun and a little thought provoking. It is a British movie full of British stars you will recognize, although you might not be able to put your finger on where youve seen them last. It stars two of Englands best actresses, Dame (the equivalent of a knighthood for women) Maggie Smith and Dame Judith Dench. They are two of half a dozen elderly Brits who are unhappy with their life in England. Some hate their job and the thought of a sad retirement. Others are unhappy with their life in general and are looking for a change. One needs a hip replacement she cant afford in England. Still others are trapped in bad marriages and estranged from their children. It sounds like a sad, depressing movie, but dont be fooled. It is funny and romantic and will make you smile too. They all see an advertisement for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a retirement hotel in India, and they decide to take up the offer of a free flight to the sub-continent and a new life. But they quickly learn that things on the Internet are not always as rosy as they seem. The Marigold Hotel is a dilapidated dive that last saw its better times 60 years earlier during the days of the British Raj. It is owned by a young Indian named Sonny Kapour (Dev Patel), who is so unfailingly cheerful and optimistic that he convinces them to stay despite their misgivings. As they settle in to their dusty, musty, but somehow charming surroundings, India begins to work its magic. To former professor Graham Dashwood (Tom Wilkinson), it is the place where he grew up and first fell in love. For Evelyn Greenslade (Dench), a housewife who never held a job, it is a place to find the fulfillment of work. For Norman Cousins and Madge Hardcastle (Ronald Pickup), its a place to find love, but not with each other. For the married couple Douglas and Jean Ainslie (Bill Nighy and Pe nelope Wilson) its a chance to examine their rocky life together. The movie has a certain charm that grows on you. You find yourself caring for these people and their lives and surprised how the crowded, hot, sometimes dirty but always exotic country changes them. The biggest change is in Smith, who is wheelchair bound, prejudiced and grumpy. But she holds conversations with the woman who brings her breakfast, despite the fact that she speaks no English. Shes also shocked by the Indian caste system that deems the housekeeper invisible to society. Director John Madden does an excellent job of intertwining the stories and the veteran actors are wonderful to watch. Dench revealed during filming that she is suffering from Alzheimers and may have to retire, so it is bittersweet to see her at her full pow ers. There isnt a weak link in this cast. Patel, who was so excellent in Slumdog Millionaire is completely enjoyable as the harried innkeeper. Wilkinson is mar velous as a man on a mission to find his old love and Bill Nighy is wonderful as a husband trying to keep his sense of humor and his growing fondness for Dench as his marriage crumbles. Madden juggles pathos and humor deftly. One moment you are laughing and the next crying. There are a few problems with pace and some of the scenes are a little contrived, but it is worth it, especially watching Maggie Smiths transformation. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is rated PG 13. I give it 3 out of 4 stars. Like Indian food its not for everyone, but a treat for those folks who like it. bakercountypress.com bakercountypress.com PRE SS CLA SSIFIED S ONLY$6.00 cash/check Deadline M onday at 5:00 THE BAKER COUN T Y PRESS

Bears aunt Kari Anderson told me he injured his foot in the loss to the Bombers and is now on injured reserve. He will regular season. Woods had a good showing before the injury, playing two quarters of the game and leading the team in tackles. Montreal lost 22-10. trials were this past weekend and one of the results sure shows you the impact of sponsorships on sports. In the womens 100 meters, a premier event, one of the fa vorites, Allyson Felix was narrowly beaten for the third and known Jeneba Tarmoh. second place winners, Carmelita Jeter and Tianna Madison. Felix is heavily sponsored by Nike and is one of the darlings it was a surprise when long afwere contacted by USATF, the which told them the race was a dead heat and too close to call. Sports commentators immediNike and the amount of pressure that they put on the USATF. Granted it was close, but Tarmoh was the winner. However, now the unknown and the star have a choice. One can give up a coin. Flip a coin? Youre going see who goes to the Olympics? Heads you win, tails you stay home and put your dreams on hold? What a gutless option. Is that the best that USATF has to offer? I like mens star Justin Gatlins option. He suggested they Jello wrestle to see who goes to London. Coach Bobby Kersee, who trains both girls, wants the press to leave his runners alone so they can train for the 200 meters. The obvious option is a match race. Let the pair run against each other to see who goes to the Olympics. Whether the USATF will recognize that as the only fair way to settle the controversy is questionable. Well have to wait and see.

Denotes Baker County player JOEL ADDINGT ON N E WS EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.comTwo sisters in the high schools anti-tobacco club and its sponsor, Anne Lewis, joined students from across in the region last week in commending executives at Daytona International Speedway for making the grandstands smoke-free. Megan and Jackie Anderson, both members of Students Working Against Tobacco, or SWAT, welcomed guests and media to a press conference held at the Gate 7 entrance to the speedway the afternoon of June 19 to announce the change. We all felt a little over whelmed. It was a learning expe rience for the kids and myself, said Ms. Lewis. They met NASCAR truck driver Jeffrey Earnhardt, who is also the spokesman for Tobacco Free Florida, the statewide smoking cessation and prevention program funded by Floridas tobacco settlement and managed by the Florida Department of Health. The driver posed for photos and signed autographs for the youths. Im proud that leading race organizations like Daytona are protecting our fans from tobacco smoke and are showing young fans that smoking is no longer acceptable, said Mr. Earnhardt. Families see drivers and venues like Daytona as legendary and this sends a healthy message to race fans. SWAT students from 21 counties participated in the press conference where a plaque was presented to speedway vice president Andrew Gurtis. Two months before the event they started having weekly conference calls with an advertising how to work with the media. Students conducted practice interviews at lunch before the 2:15 pm event to prepare as well. They spent about four hours at the speedway that day filming video, taking pictures and coordinating the event. The stands at Daytona will July 6 with the Subway Jalapeno 250. Second hand smoke contains a mix of more than 7000 chemicals, hundreds of which are toxic and 69 that can cause cancer, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services. The SWAT club at BCHS is also planning an on-campus, anti-smoking event in September during lunch.
