COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA power struggle is underway inside the Republican Partime in at least three decades there will be contested party precinct representatives on the ballot and two local men are squaring off for the post of state committeeman. County manager and incumbent state committeeman C.J. Thompson is running against challenger Danny Norton, a retired trucking company owner who says in recent years hes had more time to become an active member of the local party. I want to see the Republican Party grow and this is a good op portunity to help the party grow, said Mr. Norton, 53, of Macclenny. Im retired. I have the time to do it, and I think I could do a good job. Under the bylaws of the Republican Party of Florida [RPOF], each county party can select one state committeeman and one state committeeman woman. Their jobs are to serve as liaisons between the county-level Republican committee and the state-level committee, which partys governing board. State committee members also serve as at-large members of the county partys governing board and they elect the chair man of the Congressional District Committee, which votes on the state board. Over the past four years I have worked hard to establish relationships with our state ship and other county leaders from around the state, said Mr. Thompson, 30, also of Macclenny. Now it is time to leverage these relationships as we continue to move our party, our state and our county for ward. In addition to deciding who JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA drunk driver involved in an accident that killed one passenger and left another in a wheelchair was sentenced to 10 years in prison last week during an emotional hearing at the court house.

Hines Road in Macclenny stood with neighbors the morning of June 28 looking at a roughly five-foot gap in their road where a culvert used to be. Rushing water from Tropical Storm Debby washed several feet of the roads surface away, Mr. Whittle said, and eventually pushed the culvert pipe into a wooded area nearby. The rain started Saturday afternoon and kept coming for the next three days. Power was lost on Sunday and the culvert disappeared on Monday. Stranded at home with no power, Mr. Whittle lost two refrigerators worth of food despite having a generator on standby. Were usually not without power for that long, so I didnt have a lot of gas. I siphoned gasoline from the lawn mower just to keep it going as long as I could, explained Mr. Whittle. By Thursday, a crew from the county road department, with help from local contractor Chris Rhoden, built J.B. Hines Road back up enough to get heavy equipment to the washed out culvert, a few hundred yards from the nearest passable road, before workers reburied the culvert pipe. The previous day, Wednesday, the rain ceased and residents led Florida Power & Light personnel through the woods off Woodlawn Road to gain access to a broken power line. The same day, county road crews sprang into action trying to undue, as best they could, the damage done during Tropical Storm Debby.Debby cleanup underway PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Residents of J.B.

No, Im not talking about something that you bury in the back yard with pictures and newspapers and 8 track tapes and stuff like that. That takes effort and planning. Im talking about an unintentional time capsule. Im talking of course, about the junk drawer. We all have them. Even those houses featured in House Beautiful or Town and Country or Architectural Digest have them. You cant escape it. We cant be perfectly clean and orga nized all the time. Thats called obsession and there are medications to treat it. Theres always stuff scattered around that we dont know what to do with so in a pinch we sweep it away into the junk drawer. I have three of them. In fact, as I am sitting here, you could probably consider my This weekend, my wife was away in New York City celebrating her buddy, Fay Sinclairs birthday. Kelley, who knows the big city like the back of her hand, was actThe kids were all gone. Sara Beth and Spencer were spearheading BCHS drama camp and Dylan had a concert with his band at the Murray Hill Theatre so I was home alone. So, I got in one of my rare cleaning nals of the Euro 2012 soccer tournament were sharing the airwaves with the Olympic Trials, I needed to be close to the television. So that left the kitchen cabinets and theme music please dum, dum, dum the junk drawer(s). Theyve needed it for years and peri odically we skim off the top layer of things that have collected there over the last six months. But I dont remember the last time weve ventured all the way to the bottom. Its like an architectural dig into the lay ers of time. I felt like Heinrich Schliemann excavating the ruins of Troy. There was no telling what priceless relics I was going to unearth. It had to be done. The drawer was getting too heavy to open and close easily. of napkins, a spilled container of toothpicks, seven dead batteries of various sizes, gift cards with no value, loose change, half a dollar bill, a bill I should have paid in April, a post it note with three phone numbers, none of which ring a bell, four sors, and at least, I repeat, at least thirty pens and pencils of various types. I can never find a fingernail clipper scissors and if I have to write something down I have to search for a pen that works. Yet here they all are within reach in the junk drawer. But the odd part is that this is the place ing and hide out beneath the napkins, gift cards and post it notes until Im gone and then say, Whew, that was a close one. me a clue that I was entering the second strata of junk. You see, these were not or sized with pink sparkles. They were kid clippers. All three of my kids are in their 20s now and dont use kid clippers. My suspicion deepened when I encountered other items. A red Power Ranger action figure. When my boys were 6 and 8 respectively, he was the most prized of the Power Rangers. A Barney the Dinosaur card. Oh, how many times have I heard my children sing, I love you, you love me Spencer was so taken with Barney that he once painted himself purple to be like his hero. A pog. Remember them? In the 90s trading the round discs was a fanatical elementary school kid obsession to the point where many schools including if Im not mistaken, Westside Elementary, banned them from school grounds. A boot shaped cup from the Dixie Stampede. To this day, if you ask my daughter Sara Beth about her favorite summer trip it was with her Aunt June to Dixie Stampede, the Wild West show dinner attraction in Pigeon Forge. A ticket stub from Disney on Ice. Oh, yes. I had no idea that the blue genie from Aladdin could do a double axel. But I do now. We saw Aladdin, Rugrats, and I believe Duck Tails on Ice in our day. Of course there was plenty of junk, like pen tops, rubber bands and plastic spoons. But those things werent junk. They were history. They didnt get tossed in the trash. one of the half dozen or more plastic tubs that represent our life as a family. One of these days Ill go through them but not to throw things away, just to pleasantly relive the past for a while. Our Facebook page continued this week to serve as a bulletin board for storm-related information, but we also received comments regarding this weeks online poll (see front page for results) re garding support for a hypothetical halfcent gasoline tax to help fund the county road paving program. Today, the countys paving program is supported largely by two grant programs for small counties and existing gas taxes, but the county paves only a few miles each year and there are hundreds of miles of unpaved roads in the county. Heres a look at some of the comments we received:Stormi Clouse: Would this tax do any good for those of us that live on a private road that the county commissioner refuses to have any thing to do with?! Matthew Logan Wright: Instead of charging people who already pay enough in taxes and to the capitalistic gas companies, you should attempt to get an oering from the gas companies directly. Colleen Scharphorn Harvey: By the sound of it, some of the newer paved roads didnt hold up so well anyhow. Take Cow Pen for exam ple. Paved less than 6 months and washed away. Its a great idea if the roads would hold up. God help us if a hurricane came through. Gary Bass: I hope they have contacted the governor and re quested FEMA assistance.

The gov ernor has to declare Baker County a disaster area and then he calls the feds for money. Andrew L. Harrell: What percentage/dollar amount of our county road departments annual budget is already used specically for continuously grading unpaved roads in the county? What percent age of the road departments budget is already funded by our local taxes/fees? Joshua Forth: Forgot it, heck no on the half-cent gas tax! Marc Knapp: Here is my reply to this ... Never let a serious crisis go to waste, [a quote from] Rahm Emmanuel.Perhaps inspired by this weeks poll question, Mr. Bass wanted to asked our Facebook friends about their support for a potential half-cent sales tax to fund a public water and sewer system countywide. Heres what they had to say ... Breener Repovich: Uhhh ... No. Adam MainMan Carey: Its always. Will you support a tax for this or that? And then that tax never goes away once said reason for tax is paid for. Look at [the] taxes we are paying for still for the civil war! Jack Presnell: I would go higher than that if it was for the entire county and not just for Mcclenny. Jamie Webb: Has anyone estimated the cost for this? What type of yearly revenue would a 1/2 cent tax bring? Multiple high service water wells, treatment plants/ pumping stations and piping for the whole county would be a huge expense. Then all the piping to go along with it and hookups on the homeowners property. Ask JEA how easy it is to get people o private wells and onto a paid utility system.

Contrary to what engineer Frank Darabi claims [in the article published in the June 21 edition of The Press], sewage sludge is not a fertilizer, nor is it organic. not legally be grown on land that has been treated with sludge. Major food processors, such as DelMonte, Heinz and Western Growers, also do not accept produce grown on land treated with sludge. Mr. Darabi confuses read ers by claiming that sewage treatment plants have removed metals and pathogens from the sludge. Yes, metals, pathogens and a vast array of toxic chemical compounds have been removed, but not from the sludge, from the incoming sewage. Once removed, these pollutants, including hazardous in dustrial waste, concentrate in the resulting sludge. How can anyone claim that this complex mixture of industrial pollutants and biological waste that has been removed from sewage is as harmless as the cleaned and disinfected water that is returned to the river? EPAs most recent national sludge quality survey found toxic chemical compounds in virtually every sample tested. Once sludge is spread on land, inactivated or robust pathogens can re-grow, producing endotoxins which have triggered life-threatening asthma attacks and other respiratory problems. Especially during prolonged air inversions and drought. Conversely, heavy rains and flooding can wash sludge pollutants into surface and ground water and wells.Caroline Snyder, Ph.D. North Sandwich, NHClaims on city sewer sludge are inaccurate her mother, Marlene Griffin, begged the judge to avoid prison time for Mr. Starling, who did not have a previous criminal record. Witnesses said he was remorseful at the scene and attended Ms. Irelands funeral, where he tear fully apologized to her family in person. I dont believe Im a victim, Ms. Williams wrote in a letter to the Judge Rosier. I believe accomplice would be a better word ... We are all three to blame and I know that all three of us have gotten punished in different ways. Court records show she, Ms. Ireland and Mr. Starling were long-time friends in school and graduated the same year in 2007. They had parted ways but reunited prior to the accident. Prosecutors dropped charges of vehicular homicide and DUI with injury or property damage. The defendant is prohibited from contact with Ms. Irelands family while incarcerated, unless they initiate it. In other sentencings from the June 26 court docket: contest to exploiting the elderly and credit card fraud in exchange for an 18-month sentence in prison followed by two years on probation. Registered nurse Tiffany L. Quinn, 22, was taking care of the victim, Amy Swisher, last February when the 83-yearold womans pastor and estate executor contacted police about suspicious charges to her missing credit cards account. Upon questioning by investigators, the defendant admitted to purchasing $500 Rascal Flats concert tickets, an iPad, laptop computer and gym membership without the victims knowledge. Ms. Quinn will receive 132 days credit for time served at county jail and the state agreed to drop two counts of grand theft as part of the plea deal.

Carol Parker Genaro Harris Tiany QuinnFrom page 110 years for DUI deathwill serve as the county partys next state committeeman, members of the local Republican Party 13 contested precinct commit teeman and committeewoman posts. Each precinct, per party rules, can elect one committeeman and one committeewoman for every 1000 Republicans in the precinct; so precincts with more party members may have more committee members. They are responsible for getting out into their precinct and getting to know voters, energizing voters and getting out the vote, explained Don Marshall, the chairman of the Republican Party of Baker County. Precinct committee members also vote to elect the officers, including the chairman, of the county partys governing board. Three of the countys nine precincts have contested precinct committeeman, committeewoman or both races that will appear on Republican primary ballots. The primary election is Au gust 14. Party members in the South Macclenny precinct will vote among four candidates (Kirk L. Gravelle, William Bill Krall, William L. Lowther, Jr., and Wilcommitteeman posts and among Phyllis A. Johnston, Susan Leger Krall, Theresa K. Lowther, Eva P. Redmon and Kathleen Kate Pamitteewoman posts. In the Macedonia precinct, four candidates, including Mr. Norton and sheriff candidate Cameron Coward, are vying for two committeeman spots. The other men are Michael A. Kindard and Thomas D. Rhoden. In the Macedonia committeewoman race, Carla Coward, Karen Dougherty, Michelle Eagle and Christine R. Norton are facing off for two positions as well. Three committeeman will be selected to represent the Sanderson precinct. On the ballot for Barber, Warren A. Butler, County Commissioner Michael Ray Crews, Gregory A. Sheppard and Michael Wilcox. Supervisor of Elections Nita Crawford said shes been with the cant recall ever having contested precinct committee candidates on the ballot. The last contest for state committee members occurred in 2004. But Mr. Marshall, the local party chairman, says the high level of competition is not a sign of turmoil within the organization. It shows an increase in enthusiasm and the importance of this particular election, said Mr. Marshall. People want to be involved in what the party does and how it does it, and in order to have the vote, you have to be a committeeman or committeewoman. If you want to have say in what the party does locally, thats the position you need to be in. When asked about heated arguments during recent party meetings, at least one that de volved into name calling be tween individuals running for positions within the county party, the chairman charac terized them as differences of opinion. Theres definitely differ ences of opinion, and there al ways is, he said. Now we just have a lot more people active and involved. Mr. Marshall added that the disagreements do not stem ty members in recent years or new party members having conIts not new guard versus old guard, he said. A lot of the new folks disagree with other new folks and a lot of the old folks disagree with other old folks. I dont see it tied to any particular group. Its the dynamic of any growing organization that everybody has differing opinions and thinks their way of doing it is the best.

He said the preliminary assessments last weekend showed the county has met the damage threshold to be eligible for disaster relief should the state receive federal assistance. Gov.

Drunk driver arrested MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF Ten houses or mobiles homes would be permitted on a 10-acre site currently zoned for only one residence per 10 acres on County Road 125 north of Glen St. Mary if a proposed rezoning is approved by the Baker County Commission. The parcel lies directly across the road from Bear Creek, a new subdivision zoned for 10-acre residential lots owned by the same real estate development company, KRC Property Ltd., seeking the rezoning to allow one-acre home sites. The countys Land Planning Agency, a land use and zoning advisory board, unanimously recommended approval of the rezoning petition following a public hearing on the evening of June 28. The next public hearing will be before the county commission at 6 pm on July 16. Despite the contrast in density that would be permissible on opposite sides of CR 125, the LPA board agreed with the planning and zoning departments assertion that the proposed use conforms with the countys longrange comprehensive plan. request for a zoning change from AG 10 to RCMH1 and future land sity Residential is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and the Land Development Regulations and recommends approval, the departments staff report stated. The property, 1,262 feet long and 348 feet deep, is part of a 293-acre parcel of undeveloped land on the south side of CR 125 about a mile north of a county solid waste transfer station. Though it lies just outside the urban growth boundary, which has been designated for future residential development in the county, its close enough to be considered favorably, said Ed Preston, the countys planning and zoning director. Its within a logical extension of the urban growth boundary, Mr. Preston said. The countys Development Review Committee endorsed the rezoning application on June 6. ceived no inquiries or objections concerning the proposed rezoning. Glendon Patten, one of three new LPA members who attendasked about the membership of the Development Review Committee and whether its meetings were open to the public. Mr. Preston explained that the DRC is comprised mostly of county department heads and make non-binding recommendations. And like any other public body, elected or appointed, all their meetings are open to the public, Mr. Preston said. Duncan Walters, one of the other new members present, noted that Mr. Preston said the 10-acre site was just outside the urban growth boundary. He wanted to know how far outside the boundary did the property lie. Less than a mile, Mr. Preston said. Mr. Walters then asked the planning director whether the proposed rezoning would set a precedent for the remaining property in the 293-acre parcel. Mr. Preston said that was possible, but its too soon to tell because the application before them sought for rezoning. Newcomer Joseph DeFee asked if the Bear Creek subdivision zoning was the same as the applicant was seeking on the property across the street, to which Mr. Preston replied that Bear Creek was platted last year for 10-acre home sites and that the developer had deed restrictions prohibiting mobile homes. However, Mr. Preston said, there are other small subdivisions with one-acre lots within a mile. Mr. Preston further explained that the county cannot place restrictions or conditions on rezoning. In other words, the applicant cannot be ordered to exclude mobile homes if the rezoning permits mobile homes. Conventional or mobile homes would be allowed, Mr. Preston said. Chairman Pat Collier voted in favor of the rezoning, but ex pressed some qualms about re quiring people in Bear Creek to build new homes on 10-acre lots while just across the street houses or trailers could be placed on single-acre lots. This could get a little uncomfortable down the road, Mrs. Collier said. Todd Knabb, president of KRC Property, said the company has sold one lot in Bear Creek and plans to wait until the other lots are sold before moving forward with development of the 10 acres across the street, which he said are planned for (conventional) homes only right now. Plans are one thing but zoning is the law. Mobile homes could go across the street, said Mrs. Collier. Yes, Mr. Knabb said. Board member Jim Smith didnt see anything wrong with allowing mobile homes on small lots across the street from houses on lots 10 times bigger. A mobile home doesnt necessarily devalue conventional homes, Mr. Smith said. In some cases it raises the value of the mobile home. In other business the board: two acres of a 15-acre parcel on Bill Davis Road, about one mile north of Mud Lake Road and south of Interstate 10, from agriculture to light industrial to allow the owner to continue his motor home repair business. The owner, Benny Leonard, said he has been repairing motor homes on his property since he was forced to sell his business in Jacksonville some time ago due to economic pressures. Mr. Preston said a code enforcement complaint had been received recently, though not from any of Mr. Leonards neighbors. Mr. Leonard said he believes the complaint was lodged anonymously by a former em ployee of his. Nonetheless, once the complaint was received the county was obligated to investigate and subsequently found that Mr. Leonard was in violation of the zoning code by operating a business on property zoned for residences only. Since the rezoning applica tion was filed neighbors have come forward to say they dont object so much to Mr. Leonards home-based business but they do not want the property rezoned to light industrial. Mr. Preston said that if Mr. Leonard ever sold his property the zoning would go with the land and a new owner could engage in an activity that might be much more objectionable than motor home repairs. This use is non-conforming as it is currently being used as a motor home repair business and potentially could become more non-conforming with the requested zoning change, Mr. Preston said, adding that his department recommended denial. The County Commission will 16. members who were present, as well as a fourth new member, Phillip Jefferson, who was abgoodbye to Mrs. Collier and Mr. Smith, both of whom had previously submitted their resignations. Philip Zamarron, who was absent from the meeting, was appointed the new chairman to replace Mrs. Collier, who served six years on the board, two years longer than her original appointment.Online C CLet people know whats going onpost your special event online bakercountypress.com Press Advertising Deadline Monday 5:00 PM Everyone is invited to celebrate First Baptist Church of St. George on July 4 to celebrate the Lord and American freedom.

GUERRYFUNERAL HOME rff www.guerryfuneralhome.net r f MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF The Baker County Sheriffs eral men who reportedly pulled a handgun on a man and a woman in a car and stole a shotgun from their vehicle on Tony Givens Road in Sanderson. The incident occurred about 11:22 pm on June 27 as Michael K. Hokanson Jr., 35, and Wendy A. Britt, 30, were traveling west on Tony Givens Road approach ing the CR 229 intersection when they observed six to eight black males standing in the roadway speaking to two stopped motorists, according to a sheriffs re port. Mr. Hokanson said that after he stopped to allow the other ve hicles to move the pedestrians began surrounding his vehicle and one of them shouted, What you want? He said at that time one of the men on the drivers side of his car brandished a black and silver automatic handgun and placed it in front of his face through the driver window, while another man reached through the window and pulled out a shotgun that had been located between the front driver and passenger seats. Mr. Hokanson told deputies later that the handgun remained aimed at his person until the second male took possession of his shotgun, at which time all but one of the men began running in several directions. Mr. Hokanson said he then got out of his car and began approaching the remaining suspect while screaming in anger. He retreated to his vehicle when the man pulled a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at him, he said. He and his companion then drove toe Freddies Quick-Stop on US 90, where he called 911 to report the incident. Mr. Hokanson was unable to give authorities detailed descriptions of the suspects, other than they were black males with short black hair. the deputies saw a black male wearing a white shirt and blue shorts run from the location. He was not apprehended and it wasnt known whether he had anything to do with the robbery. The stolen shotgun was described as a Kessler 16 gauge bolt-action model with a twoshot detachable magazine valued at approximately $150. An investigation will be conducted, even though as the report stated no evidence exists to identify a possible suspect. Deputies didnt leave the scene empty-handed, however. They ended up making a felony drug arrest before the night was over. About 40 minutes after the armed robbery was reported one colored Lincoln sedan pass by on Tony Givens Road with the license plate not on the rear of the vehicle where it should have been, but lying face down inside the vehicle below the rear win dow. and speaking with the driver, Bobby Blue Jr., Deputy M. Yarborough noted in his report that he detected the strong distinct odor of burnt marijuana emanating from the interior of the vehicle. While talking with the driver the deputy said he saw the only passenger, later identified as Terence Nathaniel Williams, 26, attempting to conceal a hat containing a large amount of loose tobacco and cigar packaging between his person and the center console of the vehicle. Hallowed out cigars are com monly used to smoke marijuana. A subsequent search of the ve hicle and the suspects produced a clear plastic baggy found in the passengers front pocket. Inside with a green leafy substance that deputies said field-tested positive for THC, the intoxicating chemical in marijuana. Inside the larger baggy were two $20 bills, two $10 bills and a $1 bill. The driver was released tions, while Mr. Williams was arrested and transported to jail for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of less than 20 grams of the drug.

Page11JULY 5, 2012 Page10JULY 5, 2012 BOB GER ARD | SPORTS Rock Rhoden has been named the interim head coach for the Baker County Middle School Bobcats, replacing George of last year. Rhoden, who owns a construction company in town, was a star linebacker for the Wildcats in the 1980s and has assisted with the football program at BCMS for eight years. He coached for a year under Allen Murphy and was present head coach. I cant wait to start on July 9, said Rhoden. He expects about 41 players to return from spring turning starters which is some thing you dont normally see in middle school, he noted. BCHS coach Ryan Sulkowski Bobcats practiced alongside the Wildcats this spring and they version of the offense and de fense run by BCHS, something Sulkowski is very excited about. Every Tuesday night in the sion offensively and defensively of what we run on the varsity and junior varsity levels, Sulkowski said. He hopes when Bobcat players move to the high school they will already have a working knowledge of the playbook and by practicing alongside the Wildcats will understand what is re quired of them. Rhoden agrees and was pleased with what he saw during the spring. I think it was great. Ive never seen them work so hard. Part of it was knowing that this was their future, he said. Rhoden says the Bobcats will use the same workout routine, lifts, terminology and playbook as the high school, something that is sure to have a strong effect on both programs down the road. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson liked what she saw from the practices and from Rhoden. We had such a positive response from our community with the middle school program practicing along side the high school student athletes this spring, she said. I am just thrilled that these two programs have joined. We are excited to have Rock Rhoden as the middle school coach. By combining the programs, Sulkowski and Rhoden will work side-by-side to ensure that the two teams are on the same page. Sulkowski also wants an increased focus on academics so his players are able to move on to college football when the time comes. Rhoden says that both Ryan and Joey Sulkowski have been a big help to him in preparing for the transition though he knows he will see less of them come fall. Theyll have their hands full at the high school, said Rhoden Still, Sulkowski plans to visit the middle school players to stress academics and behavior.

That was Wildcat head foot ball coach Ryans Sulkowskis comment when reached last week about the progress of summer football workouts. The Cats have been lifting weights and working on speed and conditioning since June 18, but the weather has put a real damper on things. Instead of being outside, last week most of the workouts were held in the gym. Sulkowski even had to cancel when the school was closed down on account of Tropical Storm Debby. Debby got us sidetracked for a few days, but the kids are workworkouts are primarily to get the kids back in the swing of things, said Sulkowski. This week the players have off for the Independence Day holiday before coming back to resume three straight weeks of workouts in preparation for what Sulkowski calls the rigors of fall camp. He is convinced that the ex tent to which the players work in the off season translates directly to the success that they have on We dominated Westminster last season because we were in better shape than them. We know we have to have better conditioning when we travel to Lake City in August to take on Columbia. Ear ly in the season, the team who is more in shape usually makes less mistakes and has fewer injuries, the coach said. With a grueling season against some very strong teams ahead of them, Sulkowski plans to use the workouts, even in the brutal heat as their friend. Though the players may not think of it as their friend that is the message the coaches are preaching to them. That is our goal ... not to punish the kids, but to make sure they are in top physical condition when we line up to play. That will help us overcome lack of experience and talent in certain areas, he said. Summer workouts con tinue through July 26.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The Little League All-Star teams took the districts are being run this year out of at various sites including here in Baker County and the age groups have put up some good numbers in the early rounds of play.
