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 Glen St. Mary roofing contractor paid thousands of dollars for jobs that reportedly never got off the ground months and months is facing 14 counts of fraud for his lack of liability insurance. Darrell G. Perry, Jr., 32, has pulled 14 permits at the county building department since September, 2011 using documents allegedly forged to show he had liability coverage, according to police. The latest permit was issued to reroof a mobile home owned by Donnie Jacobs on Woodrow Raulerson Road and enlarge the roof to accommo date a patio and porch. Mr. Jacobs, 58, said he paid Mr. Perry $4,000 in June to start the job on July 1, but it wasnt until July 12 that the contractor sunk 14 posts that have since begun to warp in the sun. Mr. Jacobs is recovering from a heart transplant in January and takes a host of medications. He said his only income is from disability and his wifes salary at Northeast Florida State Hospital. I get up every morning and take beaucoup medicines. Ive been through quite an ordeal. I might of died at Shands if I hadnt gotten a new heart, he said. Im certain I dont need all this stress right now. He said Mr. Perry has not made any more progress on his new roof, other than to park a trailer at his property. Its just been excuses after excuse, he said. And now he wont return my calls. Another client of Mr. Perrys, Richard Overland of Mud Lake Road, gave the contractor a $10,000 deposit last April for a new tile roof on his home. He said the project has not been completed and he cant reach Mr. Perry. Mr. Overlands mother, Betty Bonner, signed a con tract with Mr. Perry in November, 2011 for work at her home on SR 121 South. She said the ect, either, though the uncompleted portions are minor.

JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.composed sand mines east and south of Macclenny has been heating up lately and could boil over right before the August 14 primary. Two mining companies with their sights set on extracting course sand from hundreds of acres in Baker County have in vested substantial sums of cash toward that endeavor. More recently, a local businessman opposed to the projects has put his money where is mouth is, too. South county resident Mark Broughton, who owns a payroll company, wrote an $1800 check to publish a series of advertisements in The Baker County Press during a fiveweek period ending one week before the primary election. Its a lot of money, he said of the advertising bill. And I thought long and hard before writing that check. Mr. Broughton is married to former Land Planning Agency board member Allison Broughton, who led a grass-roots campaign against the medical waste incinerator facility proposed by Pennsylvania-based Integrated Waste Management Systems. The Broughtons believe the twin sand mining plans could by pouring more semi-trucks onto US 90 in Macclenny. The sand mining projects have been the subject of two public hearings thus far, both of which have been noticed, as required by law, in the newspaper. But Mr. Broughton said the small type used in legal advertisements may be over looked by readers. A much larger advertisement, he reasoned, could not be missed. Mr. Broughtons ad encompasses about half a page and features large type. Its a tactic to inform the public, Mr. Broughton said in an interview with The Press on July 12. He also criticized the county for not publicizing the projects sooner. The reason I put [the ad] in there, is [the county] had almost a year of knowledge about Campaign opposing mine plans ramps up BB bandit gets three years aer plea dealS ee page 5 A Callahan man who twice sought to have a female acquaintance accompany him while he robbed area stores was sentenced in circuit court on July 17 to 35 months in prison. Brandon White, 30, entered a no contest plea to robbing the Raceway store and gas station on Woodlawn Rd. the morning of November 15 last year. The state dropped a companion count of petty theft as part of the plea agreement. Mr. White got between $100-$150 in cash during the holdup using what turned out to be a pellet pistol. According to the investigative report, Tabitha Courson, 27, tipped off police later that day that Mr. White may be responsible. He telephoned her about two hours before the 6:30 am stick-up and asked her if she wanted to rob a store with him. Ms. Courson said she connected the suspect to the robbery when she heard about it later from a friend. She said she met Mr. White at a Glen St. Mary residence three days earlier. She called police when he again telephoned her and asked if she wanted to accompany him to rob the Walgreens in Macclen ny. By that time, Ms. Courson had made the call to police and she agreed to lure Mr. White back to an address off Eastwood Dr. where she was. He was arrested shortly after near Interstate 10 based on her description of his vehicle.

The measure was given preliminary approval on July 10. Specifically, the prohibition would extend to persons carry ing signs or dressed in costumes designed to attract attention for a commercial advertisement. Cur rently, signs carried by a person are permitted. However, city officials have determined that such advertising should be banned because hazard by possibly distracting drivers attention to such an exard. Its to keep people from being distracted and causing an accident, Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough said. You can really notice the distraction. He said he has never personally been distracted enough by people holding advertising signs to get into an accident, nor known of any accidents directly caused by such activity. But he said anything like that could cause a distraction and an accident. The proposed ordinance would affect possibly four or man signs, Mr. Yarborough said. hall about the upcoming prohibition, he said, because thats not normally something we do. Mr. Godwin Sr. said he heard about the proposed ban from some other business owners. He doesnt like the idea. Its really going to hurt my business and could even cause me to close my doors, he said. I really need those girls out there with my signs. My storefront sign just doesnt get seen from the road. He said he pays the two young women, both 16-year-old students at Baker County High, minimum wage to work four hours a day several days a week. One works from 9 am to 1 pm and the other from 3 to 7 pm, and he said he gives them a 15-minute break each hour and plenty of time to come inside and drink water on hot days. trying to eliminate a potential hurt any businesses. The main objection is that its there twirling their signs, City Attorney Frank Maloney said when the ordinance amendment was introduced two weeks ago. City Councilman Vernon Bennett said he was driving down 6th Street recently when he noticed a girl who probably couldnt have been more than 14 years old trying to drag a sign in 98 degree heat. He said the proposed prohibition would probably save her life. Kayla Hancock, one of the two young women who carry the Pawnderosa signs, said she likes her job and needs it to continue to help with her own expenses, including a cell phone and her car, which she uses to get her and her sister to school and her to dual enrollment classes in nursing at Florida Gateway College in Lake City. Its really hard to get a job now, especially when youre so young and under 18, she said. If this is made illegal, I wont be able to afford a car to get me and my sister to and from school. Robert Godwin Jr. said the citys plan to ban the most effective advertising he and his father use would not only hurt local businesses, but eliminate about 10 jobs. The economy is already so bad that teenagers are having a Scott Lightsey said he has lived in Macclenny for years but only discovered Pawnderosa a month or so ago when he was driving by and saw a young lady holding a sign. He then noticed the store front sign and went inside to look around. Im a regular customer here, now, he said. Theyre real good people and theyre honest. I really enjoy dealing with them. Mr. Godwin Sr. said he plans to attend the August 14 hearing to express his concerns and opposition to the proposed ban. Macclenny already has the tightest, most restrictive sign or dinance Ive ever seen, he said. businesses. It seems unjust. I think there are some constitutional issues here. Diana Montgomery, who owns commercial property just outside the city limits on the east side of SR 228 at Interstate 10, said she, too, is opposed to the citys proposed sign code change. My concern is if the city passes, will the county follow suit, Mrs. Montgomery said. She owns the property that housed Phantom Fireworks for years before Phantom built its own store across the street last year. Mrs. Montgomery began lier this year and stood outside waving at passing motorists to attract attention for the upcoming July 4th holiday. Mostly I was outside waving a noodle, you know those things that kids wear in a swimming pool, she said. Banning people from standing outside holding advertising signs, she said, seems like its pretty unconstitutional. If the city is all that concerned about reducing distractions to motorists, Mr. Godwin and his son say, what about political candidates and all their supporters who wave campaign signs at passing motorists and weekend car washes featuring girls in shorts?LETTERS TO THE EDITOR IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley Open 7 Days week | 8 am 8 pmCROSSROADS SHOPPING CENTER816 S. 6th St. | Macclenny CAMERON FOR SHERIFF Cameron Coward US Senator Marco Rubio CFO Jeff Atwater Congressman Allen West US Senator Rick Santorum For the past several years I have been busy carrying the Republican message of Lower Taxes, a strong National Defense, smaller government, and building businesses to the voters of Florida and the United States. On August 14, vote for the True Conservative Republican in this race: Vote Cameron for Sheriff. www.elect-cameron.comPolitical ad paid for and approved by Cameron Coward, REPUBLICAN for Sheriff of Baker County TRUE CONSERVATIVE Dear Editor:When did Baker County politics become so interesting to St. Johns County residents? Mr. Smiths accusatory and conspiracy theory-laden letter in last weeks edition seemed to place blame on everyone but Mr. Norton for his failure to turn in his paperwork properly. Sounds like sour grapes to me. To believe that it is Mr. Thompsons responsibility to inform Mr. Norton or anyone else how to run for the position that he currently holds is ridiculous. It doesnt pass the common sense test in my opinion, but then common sense isnt so common these days. As adults, we have to accept responsibility for our actions, regardless of who we want to blame when things dont go our way.Janet Armentrout MacclennyDear Editor:I take issue with the letter published in the July 19 edition of The Press in which Bob Smith of St. Augustine questions who C.J. Thompson, our county manager, is going to vote for in the sheriffs election. Most intelligent people dont vote for a person because they have a D or an R after their name, but rather on their reand reputation. I assume Mr. Thompson, or anybody else for that matter, will vote for whoever he feels John Bellovich MacclennyDear Editor:C.J. Thompsons positions as county manager and state Republican committeeman are Florida Statute 125.74 says the county manager works for the board of county commissioners. The oath he swore when he became a committeeman reads, I swear and/or election of any candidate other than the Republican candidate in the unitary, general or special election ... In two county commission races (Democrats Gordon Crews and Mark Hartley), Mr. Thompson will have to support their opponents. At best, this will cause an uncomfortable atmosphere. Thompson should resign as committeeman to maintain a working atmosphere with all commissioners.Sharon Padgett MacclennyDear Editor:I do not appreciate the slurs directed by Bob Smith at Mr. (C.J.) Thompson and Mr. (Don) Marshall in his letter last week. It appears he is the one practicing dirty and good ole boy politics in his advocacy of Mr. (Danny) Norton. He alone was rect papers and even though qualify (to run for Republican committeeman), he continues to campaign. There are two GOP candidates running for sheriff. As to who we should vote for, it is none of Mr. Smiths business. I have the right to vote as I choose, as does Mr. Thompson. If Mr. Smith wants to practice dirty politics and manipulate people, he should go to Washington. Baker County doesnt need him.Eva Redmon MacclennyDear Editor:The letter written by Bob Smith is full of misrepresentations and is less than honest. First, Republicans stand for self-reliance and individual re sponsibility. They do not blame someone else for their mistakes. Second, the procedure for (women) is on the Republican Party of Florida website. Clearly, the candidates party oath had to be in Tallahassee by noon on June 8. Each candidate from 67 counties has to follow the partys rules. If that person can not follow simple instructions, why would you vote for that person? Third, FL Statute 112.046 ee of the state or any political subdivision may also serve as a member of the state executive committee or county executive committee of a political party. Fourth, we have two Republican candidates running for sheriff in the primary. Bob Smith from St. Augustine is telling Baker County we have only one candidate.Kate Svangdis MacclennyThe City of Macclenny would be well advised to dump the proposed ordinance bannng live signs and instead concentrate on ridding its streets most notably busy South 6th of the hodge-podge of ugly signage that is truly a distraction to motorists and the eyes of anyone driving, riding, walking or in the case of late night bar patrons, stumbling along the thoroughfare. The city commission believes live signs that feature warm bodies waving them for pawn shops, restaurants, cellphone companies, etc. pose a danger to motorists because they are often waved directly at oncoming traffic. Maybe so, but theyre no worse than electronic signs that grace several financial in stitutions and, more lately, the health department office on Lowder St. Those are placed in attractive settings and except for one are close to the ground at eye level and dont constitute eyesores. The commission passed the proposed ordinance on first reading on July 10 and its scheduled for a second hearing and final passage on August 14. Hopefully, business interests affected by the ban will show up, along with others who see this is a further intrusion by government on private small businesses at just the wrong time. They wont get far arguing that live signs are free speech, because that will be countered by city fathers insisting theyre more focused on the safety of motorists. But they may get somewhere pleading that small businesses need a break in 2012, not more hindrances from Big Brother. Its a bit of a stretch to say that the types of live signs that have popped up in recent months constitute a real hazard. And that includes the guy in the body stocking Spider Man garb who for a time danced around the sidewalk for Verizon. He made us laugh. They might convince board members to allow live signs further back from the right-ofway to lessen the distraction danger, if in fact there exists a danger. It seems like Macclenny is overreacting a bit, and the damage potential to mostly small, taxpaying businesses is greater than the perils to motorists. And what about political candidates and their sup porters waving signs the next few months on all busy street corners? Are they distractions, and should they be banned? Many believe they are and should be. And what about the most irritating distraction of them all firemen and cheerleaders soliciting cash at stop lights? Give me the gal with the pawn shop sign, or better, the Verizon Spider Man any day. And while were at it, how did that guy stay cool in that body stocking? Just askin.Are live signs really a hazard?You know those television commercials about phar maceuticals for arthritis and weight loss and acne? The ones where they list side effects a mile long including sudden death? As I was sitting on a bench at the Nantahala Outdoor Center waiting to white water raft and listening to the guide discuss the safety precautions I thought about those commercials. If you fall out of the boat, do not try to stand up. You could cut your feet on rocks or get trapped between rocks. You could then fall in the water and drown. the surface of the water and hold up your head to avoid slamming into the boulders and try to reach for the rope that is tossed to you. The people around me were cutting their glances back and forth at one another as if to say, who signed me up for this? The guide went on with his cheery little talk. Keep strapped tightly around your chest so we can pull you into the boat if you fall out. At the end of the trip, we will stretch a rope across the river to stop you from entering the Class 6 rapids that are 100 yards beyond where we dock the rafts. I remind you of these things because a man was killed this week when he did not follow these simple directions. I looked at my wife sitting next to me. I dont know if this was a good idea, she says. I heard those words coming out of my mouth but also in the back of the worry-wart part of my brain heard my own person al rafting guide speaking to me. If you should fall in the water do not curl up like a ball. surface. That makes it harder for the water moccasins to get into your clothing. Though I mention snakes, they are not your primary wor ry. Those would be the alligators. The alligators will eat the snakes like a tasty appetizer of calamari before they come after you. If you stretch out straight they might mistake you for a log. That is, if they are near sighted and cant smell your abject fear. Attempt not to, I repeat, not to cut your foot on a rock. The blood could draw the piranhas that have not been eaten by the alligators. If the alligators have cleared the piranhas from your area, a cut foot could also cause infecteria that grows rampantly in these waters. However, should you be eat en by a snake, alligator or pira nha, drown in the water or connot think of suing because all of that is covered in the disclaimer you signed before taking the trip. Is everyone ready to white water raft? The real guide intruded on my reverie. Then, lets load up. I loaded into the raft along with my family. I had rafted before, but on a far calmer river. Still, I was anxious to go. As it turned out, it was a wonder ful time. The river was at times rapid and at times calm enough ful scenery. The Nantahala Outdoor Center has trained 22 Olympians and two gold medal winners, so they know how to do it right. The end of the 2-hour trip is a series of swift rapids and a drop that is guaranteed to get you wet. It was a lot of fun and very exhilarating. We had a wonderful time and there wasnt an alligator in sight. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD Our vote, not yours Follow the directions Resign from oce More than just politics Why help opponents?

We had less than 30 days to respond to the companies experts. My passion for this comes from being involved in a contest that I dont think has been fair, he said. It isnt fair to the public for this to be taking place for almost a year and then we have 30 days to get our facts together. 28, when the Land Planning Agency, or LPA, voted 4-1 to recommend that the Baker County Commission approve both projects. When the the matter until August 20. Four commissioners contacted by The Press last week said putting a spotlight on proposed developments, like the sand mines, before public vate companies who may be considering projects here and elsewhere. with a local planning agency they can request that it not be public information, said Commissioner Jimmy Anderson. This is for their protection in case they decide not to enter into that area. This protects them in case they are looking at several sites. These are not our rules, but are just standards set throughout the economic growth community. Commissioner Michael Crews, who ity of sand mining here seven or eight and board chairman Gordon Crews both conceded that keeping preliminary discussions with developers quiet is a necessary evil. I dont think theres any way to avoid that, Gordon Crews said. projects last March from Chamber of Commerce director Darryl Register, said holding two public hearings on proposed developments, is fair and it is being followed correctly on the sand mine issues. I appreciate Mark [Broughtons] willingness to further inform the public and his ads encouragement to contact commissioners, said Mr. Giddens. He is correct, the people elected us and I like to hear from my constituents. I have not made a decision either way yet. I am weighing both sides so that I can make an informed, educated decision on this. I am not going to approve anything if I think it will be detrimental to the people of our county. While they came late to the issue, Mr. Broughton, his wife and others concerned about the mining projects impacts, have nonetheless been leading an effort to sway public opinion, and in turn, county commissioners to their point of view. In addition to the newspaper advertising, the opposition group has launched a Facebook page known as Baker County Conservation Alliance and purchased a similar domain name for a website still under construction, according to the Facebook page. Theyve also been circulating petitions in support of their cause to present to the Baker County Commission next month. Both mining operations would take place on tracts with agriculture zoning, which does not generally permit such activities. So the mining companies have applied for zoning exceptions from the county to move forward. At the June public hearing, Commissioner Mark Hartleys motion to deny the zoning exceptions failed by a vote of 1-4. A second motion to delay consideration of the exception passed, however. One of the sand mining companies, Tampa-based Old Castle Southern Group, wants to hydraulically dredge 193 acres of a 437-acre tract it leases from DuPont east of SR 228 about two miles south of Interstate 10. Old Castle, which owns a road-paving company and a concrete plant, also has a contract to buy another 700 acres, which could extend the life of the proposed mine to 50 years. The other company, E.R. Jahna Industries Inc. of Lake Wales, FL, already leases 960 acres owned by TerraPoint LLC, a subsidiary of Rayonier, just north of three residential subdivisions off US 90 at Trailridge. There, Jahna plans to mine coarse sand used in siding, concrete blocks, stucco and other products. Jahna will also employ a hydraulic dredge for mining. Both companies contend the mines will pull about 2-3 million gallons of water per day from deep after which the existing water will be reused. Additional, smaller withdrawals may be needed throughout the life of the mine, however. Old Castle and Jahna have agreed to fund a third-party review of their mining plans, which county staff moved forward with last week. County Manager C.J. Thompson said hes contracted a water resource engineer from HSW Engineering in Gainesville for about $20,000 to re view the proposals and their potential impact on the environment. The engineer was recommended by Ed Barber of Macclenny, an environmental consultant. Mr. Thompson said he expects the engineers report by August 10, four days before the primary election. Mr. Broughton, whose been funding the campaign against the sand mines through his company Paperless Pay of Jacksonville, said he has Absolutely not, he said. However, Mr. Broughton did reveal that hes commissioned a feasibility study for his own project here that would need to withdraw about 550,000 gallons during a three week period and minute annual with draws to replenish evaporated water. But, he said, thats nothing compared to the billions of gallons that the sand mining companies say theyll need to start operations. Yes, thats a lot of water, Mr. Broughton said of his project, but in the grand scale of everything, its a drop in the bucket. political aspirations in this county. Id rather talk to people than be the man. Im a behind the scenes kind of guy. Though he declined to publicize the nature of his development plans, he said they would likely require about four dozen employees at start-up and perhaps twice that at build-out. Other sources have said it is a water park. The mining companies have estimated their operations would need fewer than 10 workers at each site.F rom page 1 We had less than 30 days to respond to the companies experts.

A capias warrant was issued for Odies Turner, who failed to appear in court that day for felony driving on a revoked license. Sentencing for David Hill for sexual battery on a child was postponed until later after public defender George Nelson filed a motion for a new trial alleging, among other things, that the victim has recanted testimony she gave during a recent trial.CIR CUIT COURT F rom page 1 County deputies responded the past week to a rash of burglaries and criminal mischief at commercial addresses all in the Macclenny area and one of them involving break-ins on two successive nights. A warrant was issued seeking the arrest of Andre Garcia, 19, of Macclenny for twice entering the BP station on US 90 downtown during the early morning hours of July 15 and 16. Based on a tip from a 17-yearold female who was seen riding a bicycle from the scene the second morning about 12:25 am, deputies converged on the suspects trailer on Rock Ct. off MLK Blvd. less than one block from the store. Using the K-9 Cash, the officers tracked him to the trailer and the nearby house of his sister on McIver St. but were not allowed to search it. Deputy Brandon Kiser and sheriffs investigator David Morgan said occupants of the house were uncooperative, and the warrant was issued for two counts of burglary. In both instances, entry was made by tossing bricks at front glass doors. Surveillance tapes of the entry that morning and the previous morning about 3 am show a male suspect matching Mr. Garcias description entering the store, the first time with a female acquaintance later identified as Jacqueline Hollings of Macclenny. The first time they took cash from a game machine; the second entry involving only Mr. Garcia, he took scratch-off lottery tickets. The BP store has since closed. Investigator Morgan said an investigation is ongoing into the girlfriends involvement and that Mr. Garcia was still lying low as of early this week. In a second commercial bur glary, two chain saws valued at $1310 were taken from the inventory at Macclenny Mower and Saw on South 6th St. overnight on July 19. Entry was through a front glass door. Deputy Chad Montean said a cash drawer and laser printer were also vandalized. Damage to the door was placed at $385. glass door of The Office Mart on South 5th was broken out, but nothing was reported missing from the inventory or contents. Damage was estimated at $300. weeks, a rear door at the United Christian Academy on North 7th in Macclenny was pried open overnight on July 16, but nothing from inside was reported missing. Knabb Sports Complex in north Macclenny was entered overnight on July 19, also for the second time in two weeks. A bolt cutter was used to sever locks and a small amount of food was believed taken. the locks off two units at the Dixie Mini-Storage lot in the same neighborhood on North 8th St. the same night. Property was stored in both units and there was no immediate indication anything was taken. The Town of Glen St. Mary during fiscal 2011 witnessed an increase in net assets due mostly to its purchase of a central water system, and at the same time saw its cash dwindle further for the same reason. The annual audit presented during the councils regular meeting July 17 represented a snapshot of the towns fiscal position nearly a year ago when the fiscal period ended on September 30, 2011. Glen saw a dip of $51,000 in its government activities account, the bulk of it cash expended on the water project north of US 90. At the same time, assets brought onto the books with the water system added $244,000. The total at yearss end $1.67 million. In a mirror of the previous year, Glens cash in general revenue fell $36,710 to $221,023 due to a transfer to finance a sewer line extension on Lincoln Ave. Some $215,000 is held in certificates of deposit. Clay Lyons of the Lyons and Lyons CPA firm in Macclenny who were commissioned to conduct the audit, noted that the town overspent its budget by $874. He included that fact as one of three adverse findings. The others include the oft-cited fact that Glen does not have separate employees with access to assets and accounting records, or all phases of a transaction. It is an audit criticism common to entities with small staffs. A similar situation exists with the lack of someone to prepare financial statements. Those instead are done by the CPA firm. In other matters during the regular monthly meeting, the council passed on first reading an ordinance upping the commercial square footage triggering a single parking space from 200 to 300. It is set for a second reading in August. The alteration was prompted by limits to the parking area around the proposed Dollar General store on US 90 east. The former Mercantile Bank building will be razed to make way for it. The Press last week reported that Valorie Ferdon, 56, of Glen St. Mary was charged on July 10 with felony leaving the scene of an accident in January that killed an 18-month-old child. The formal charges were filed on July 19. that Jennifer Lee, 25, and her boyfriend Benjamin Davis, 26, of Sanderson were arrested June 15 for possession of controlled drugs they believed were sleep ing aids. They were named in a criminal complaint for the offenses on July 15.

Re-ElectDWIGHT CREWSSCHOOL BOARD, DISTRICT 1PAID BY DWIGHT CREWS FOR SCHOOL BOARD.Your vote and support on August 14 will be greatly appreciated.Dear citizens of Baker County, As the weeks wind down to election day, I feel we need to focus on the real issues of this campaign. The next couple of weeks I will address different issues I feel are very important in this race. One issue I feel very strongly about is being prepared to do the job if elected. Before deciding to run for School Board, I attended School Board meetings for approximately one year, I served on advisory counsels at the high school and was active in the PTA. Number one, I wanted to be sure this was something I wanted to do; and, number two, I wanted to be sure this was a position I felt like I could make a difference in, and third, I wanted to know the roles and responsibilities of a board member. My opponent, on the other hand, has not attended any School Board meetings or workshops since announcing his plans to run. To my knowledge he has only attended one School Board meeting during the time I have served on the Board and that was several years ago. I cant imagine asking the people of Baker County to elect me to a position without having any idea of the roles and responsibilities of that position. JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker County Middle School was among more than 200 schools across the state to have their grade boosted last week after the Florida Department of Education discovered an error in its annual grading calculation. The state initially reported July 11 that BCMS received a Brating, falling just two points short of the threshold for an Arating. Nine days later Superin tendent Sherrie Raulerson received the good news that the middle school remained an Aschool for the sixth consecutive year in 2012. Were really excited about that, Ms. Raulerson said about 10 minutes after getting a call The miscalculation occurred because 213 of the nearly 2600 schools graded in Florida were not given credit for improve ments made by some low-per forming students, according to the Associated Press. The revised grades released last week show that 116 schools changed from a B to an A, 55 went from a C to a B, 35 went from a D to a C and seven moved up from an F to a D. The changes affected schools in 40 of the states 67 school districts, but only nine saw their district grade shift upward. Baker County, which was labeled a C school district, was not among them. Mrs. Raulerson welcomed the upgrade at the middle school, but said the roller-coaster of emotions for students and teachers there has been very frustrating. School grades are important to students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators and the community, Commissioner of Education Gerard Robinson stated in a press release regarding the revisions. And, while I am pleased that the continuous review process has resulted in better grades, we will continue to look for ways to improve the grade calculation process, he said. Keller Intermediate School became a C-rated school this year and the high schools grade is not expected for release until the fall. Other local schools do not receive letter grades from the state.

A Sanderson man with a record of prior license suspensions was arrested early on July 21 after a county deputy spotted him driving on US 90 west of Glen St. Mary. Deputy Rodney Driggers said he was aware that Joshua Davis, 30, was a chronic license violator when he stopped him just after midnight near Arnold Rhoden Rd.

JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThough delayed one day to July 22, aerial mosquito spraying by the state occurred as ex pected last weekend blanketing more than 130,000 acres in Baker County with an insecticide. The Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services reports that the spray is a safe, organophosphate insecticide approved by state and federal environmental regulators known as Naled, which is released at very low volumes into the air, making it harmless to people, pets or wildlife. dangerous, however, are mosquito-born illnesses like the Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus, or EEE, which presumably killed a horse off Orbrey Rhoden Road in Glen St. Mary last month and three others more recently. Terry Graham, an environ mental specialist with the county health department, said the Glen horse was not vaccinated for the virus, tested positive for it on June 21 and later died. case of mosquito-born viruses detected in Baker County this year, though evidence that such viruses are active across the state is widespread. Since the start of 2012, EEE has been detected in horses in Putnam and Union counties, in January and May, respectively. Sentinel chickens used as an early-detection system have shown evidence of EEE, West Nile Virus or other contagions in nearby counties, including in Alachua County on July 9, Nassau County in mid-June, St. Johns County in late-April and May, and Volusia County as recently as June 25. These diseases are out there, said Mr. Graham. Only one human case of mosquito-born illness was reported EEE in Holmes County in June. There is no vaccine for humans, but theyre widely available for horses to protect against the virus. Were mostly in a monitoring phase right now because human activity has been very limited, Mr. Graham said. Horse vaccinations are available at most local feed stores and from licensed veterinarians like Dr. Joe Harrison in Macclenny. He said the vast majority of horse owners vaccinate, but some people get a little lax when we dont have as bad of a season as weve had. Dr. Harrison said on July 24 hes aware of three horses dead within the last two weeks from encephalitis, and more than likely the EEE strain. He said the owners declined to spend the roughly $100 fee for testing to verify the cause of death, however. The veterinarian said all horse owners should vaccinate regularly, because treatment for the disease is not very successful. Residents should also take precautions to avoid mosquitoes, particularly in summer months when the population balloons and the public spends more time outside. We already know, and have known for several years, that mosquito-borne diseases, including West Nile Virus, are present everywhere in Florida, and most, if not all, of the country, said Mr. Graham. cials are urging citizens to follow these four rules: Dress appropriately when outdoors by covering your body, arms and legs; use an insect repellent with DEET, avoid being outdoors before dawn and after dusk when mosquitoes are most active and drain standing water sources like birdbaths, pet bowls and tubs frequently. Symptoms of mosquito-born illnesses may include headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness or weak ness; and can take up to two weeks after a bite to show up. Anyone suspecting they are sick should contact a physician immediately. Additional mosquito spraying by the state could be on the way if Lt. Adam Faircloth, the sheriffs office emergency management director, by e-mail early this week. He said mosquito traps were set out on July 23 to gauge the effectiveness of last weekends spraying. I have not received word yet on if there will be additional spraying, he continued. I am pretty certain that another round would only be done if the trap data does not show marked improvement ... It will likely be a few days until we know if another spray application will be needed. 1433 S. 6TH ST. MACCLENNY $ 5 00 Off any service with DeniseMust present this ad.

ursday, July 26, 2012 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, July 26, 2012 JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comSome students want Asian food, others sub sandwiches, and all of them want more pizza options. But the Baker County school district wants students to eat healthier foods, and its Cathy Golons job to see that both groups are happy. Beginning August 20, when students return from summer break and experience the districts revamped meals program, shell know if she succeeded. Ms. Golon, the districts nutrition services director, has been working with a Winter Springs, FL consultant, Sue Tatum of Vinca Marketing & Communications, to implement changes to the program, many of which are mandated by the federal agency responsible for funding about 70 percent of it. Theyve revised school menus, but also how the food is presented to stu dents, in hopes of making district-provided meals more appetizing and more nutritious. That way, Ms. Golon said, more students will participate in meal plans, which helps keep them on campus and keep them safe. The effort started last spring when Ms. Tatum conducted focus groups and surveys with students at the middle and high schools to uncover their preferences. She was paid with a $4000 grant from the USDA (Department of Agriculture), the same agency that funds most the districts food ser vices budget. We wanted them to share what they wanted for the upcoming school year and we explained how the meal patterns would be changing and how best to combine those, Ms. Golon explained this week. For instance, she said, amount of a red-orange vegetables, like carrots or sweet potatoes, but they prefer them as is, rather than made into something else, like sweet potato fries or carrot cake. Were taking what they said to heart as were making the changes, Ms. Golon said. The consultant was also behind a dramatic increase in salad consumption at the high school. She recommended relocating the premade salads to the front of the lunch line and it apparently worked wonders. Prior to moving the salads, the cafeteria only made seven salads per day for a student body totaling roughly 1200, which always concerned us, noted BCHS Principal Tom Hill during the school boards last meeting on July 16. After the move, he said, they began selling dozens of salads. BCHS art teacher Tiffany Armoreda has joined the makeover, too, by sprucing up the walls of the high school and middle school cafeterias with murals and other designs. groping a pizza. She said the project took about a week to complete with help from student volunteers. The teacher began another mural at the middle school early this week. Improving the aesthetics in which students dine may help, but the food still needs to taste good. To that end, Ms. Tatum is dispatching a chef in the Memphis, TN school system to train cooks here in preparing items to be featured on the new school menus. The school board approved an $1800 contract with Vinca Marketing & Communications last week to pay for the chef, plus trav el and per diem expenses in curred by the company. The new meals will comply with a number of USDA requirements that take effect this year, though more are planned in the future, Ms. Golon said. Students on district eat ing plans will have to take a fruit and vegetable with their meals, or pay higher a la carte prices for the individual items they take minus the fruit and vegetable. Its in their interest, plus its good for them, she said, adding that while students do not have to take the healthier food, the district must offer it to continue receiving federal funding. In addition to mandates for more fruit, vegetable and protein consumption, at least half of all grains served with school meals must be whole grains and all milk must be fat free. We know that nutrition services play a big role in a students educational success and all of our changes are based on student input as well as a focus on healthy eating, said Ms. Golon. The marketing consultant will return in the fall to evaluate the programs changes. That work will be funded through another $4,000 grant from the USDA, Ms. Golon said. For more information about the coming changes, please contact Nutrition Services at 259-4330.

Some have been wonderful like Iron man and The Avengers, others awful like The Hulk and Super man III. Some have been re-branded to make up for earlier movies that were well less than good. Some didnt help such as Superman Returns. Others were terrific like the new Batman films with Christian Bale as the Dark Knight. The Amazing Spiderman falls somewhere in the middle. When I first heard they were making it I didnt understand why. After all, though the original trilogy of films starring Tobey Maguire had their faults, they werent bad movies. In fact, Spiderman 2 was very good and featured a riveting performance from Rosemary Harris as Aunt May. You can tell that in the new film starring Andrew Garfield. Maguires Peter Parker was a good but troubled kid who is accidently bitten by a radioactive spider, who becomes a reluctant super hero. What Garfields portrayal of Peter Parker brings to the screen is a little edgier. Garfield looks younger, more like the teen he is supposed to be portraying and brings impressive acting chops to the screen. Garfield was a Tony Award nominee this year for his portrayal of Biff in Death of a Salesman on Broadway. He knows his way around a script and it shows on camera. He was also impressive in Social Network as the Facebook partner who saw his share in the media giant disappear. The story is easily recognized. Parkers parents are dead and he is raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. Aunt May is played by Sally Field and Uncle Ben by Martin Sheen. They pale a little in comparison with Harris and Cliff Robertson, but are still solid particularly Sheen. What we find out this time around is that Parkers parents were scientists and his dad was working on a way of transferring genes from animals and insects to human to regrow organs or cure diseases like Parkinsons. The work is being carried on by Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans). Parker is mooning over a girl no, not Mary Jane but Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), the science geek daughter of police captain George Stacy (Denis Leary). She works for Connors and Parker cons his way into an internship to meet his fathers old partner. While in the lab, Parker enters a secured area (obviously not terribly secure) and is bitten. Soon after he begins to manifest changes. Things stick to his skin and his skin to things like walls and doors. His agility and strength increase. Though he cant spit spider webs, he devises a way to do so using some of Con nors corporations inventions. The most enjoyable part of the film is Parker learning to use his powers through trial and er ror. There is a fun scene in which he takes on the school jock in a game of basketball. The film is quick, stylish and director Marc Webb handles the action scenes well. But that quickness leaves a lot of holes and the film isnt as satisfying as the first Spiderman. Stone suffers the same weakness as Kirsten Dunsts Mary Jane she looks way older than 17. While Garfield is completely convincing as a gawky high school kid, she is not. In all, The Amazing Spiderman is enjoyable but cant come close to matching the dark ennui of the new Batman movies. But then again, neither did the comic, so comparing the two is like apples and oranges or rather, spiders and bats. I give it a weak 3 out of 4 stars. The movie is rated PG 13.

Re-ElectDWIGHT CREWSSCHOOL BOARD, DISTRICT 1PAID BY DWIGHT CREWS FOR SCHOOL BOARD.Dear citizens of Baker County, Any time we have an issue to come before the board the rst question I ask myself, is this good for children. I can honestly say every decision I have made on the board was made based on what I felt was best for our children and for our school system and not because someone asked me to support it. For example, years ago, when we changed to a dual bus system, we had an auditorium full of people opposing it. I still supported the issue, because I felt it was best for our children by making a safer system by separating young children from older children on the bus. Our schools have an open door policy, allowing parents to visit the school and discuss their childs education with teachers or administrators. Since being on the board, every parent or employee who has contacted me about a problem or with an idea of how to improve our schools, I have seen to it that it was addressed to the fullest with the appropriate people. For example, I spoke with several teachers at the high school about block scheduling, they felt it was hurting our FCAT scores due to the length of time between taking some courses and taking the test. erefore, I supported changing from block scheduling. I feel like I am a voice on the board for parents, children and employees. One of the most frustrating things about being on the board is that for three years and nine months we hear from no one about the decisions and policies we make. e three months before an election we hear what a terrible job we are doing from those seeking election. We need to hear from you any time you have a problem or an idea that might improve our schools, not just at election time.Your vote and support on August 14 will be greatly appreciated.

Vote Gregory Bohannon (R) Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar designated the wilder ness canoe trail system at Okefe nokee National Wildlife Refuge as a National Water Trail last week. Restoring our nations rivers and expanding outdoor recreational activities on them is one of the major goals of President Obamas Americas Great Outdoors Initiative, Salazar said in a press release from July 16. Through a national network of National Water Trails, we are not only connecting people to the outdoors and supporting conservation efforts for our scenic riv ers, but also supporting tourism and the recreation economy in nearby communities. Water trails are recreational routes on waterways with a network of public access points supported by broad-based community partnerships. They provide both conservation and recreational opportunities. The National Water Trails System is a network of exemplary water trails that are cooperatively sup ported and sustained. The Okefenokee Wilderness Canoe Trail is 120 miles long, but refuge staff is clearing and opening trails after two years of drought and damage from the Honey Prairie Fire. Visitors will varying degrees of experience; Each trail provides abundant opportunities for viewing wildlife. A canoe trip through the Okefenokee Swamp is an experience that you will remember for a life time. Alligators glide through the water stained dark with tannic acid. Herons and sandhill cranes wade through tall grasses and water lilies. Bears meander through hammocks and islands. Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is a haven for these and other animals over 402,000 acres of wet prairies, cypress forests and pine uplands. Since the Okefenokee Swamp serves as the headwaters for the 130-mile-long St. Marys and the 230-mile-long Suwannee River there is potential to expand the National Water Trail designation for a network of trails from the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to the possible expansion of the designated water trail, Refuge Manager Curt McCasland said, we are interested in strengthening the coordination of local and federal agencies to monitor, restore and conserve water resources in the St. Marys and Suwannee River water sheds. The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the can people.

The girls lost to Windemere in the first game, then battled back from the elimination round, beating Defuniak Springs before losing to Citrus Park in the semi-finals. Im proud of all of them, said a tired and hoarse Coach Robert Davis. Out of 900 teams in the state to finish third is quite an accomplishment. Davis team was at some what of a disadvantage going into the cham pionship. Most of the compe tition played travel ball and had 50 or more games together, while the Baker squad had been together for just six games. It makes a big difference, said Davis. Most of these teams from below Orlando and Tampa play travel ball. I had a lot of coaches tell me that we were the best recreational team there. The girls showed it early jumping up by a pair of runs early in the game against Windemere. But a pair of dicey calls took the spirit out of them, and after keeping it close, Windemere exploded for a 10 run final inning that put the game away. We went back to the hotel and I told them tomorrow is an elimination game, said Davis. We fight for the top and we finish first but not dead last. We win it or we go home. The girls came out ready to play against Defuniak Springs. They hit the ball well and played well defen sively. Twice they battled back out of a bases loaded with no outs jam to hold their opponents to just two runs. We played our game; the caliber were used to playing, said Davis. Madison Haller started on the mound and shared pitching duties with McKenzie Hickman and Leah Kerce. Camryn Payne doubled and Caityln Cook hit the ball well on the way to a 9-3 victory. In the semifinal, the Bak er County AllStars came up against a very good Citrus Park team. Citrus had a hurler with four different pitches. The All-Stars hit her fastball, but couldnt touch her rise ball that starts over the plate and comes up around the shoulder. They were an unbelievable travel ball team and we just couldnt compete. We just came up against a buzz saw, the coach recalled. Citrus Park controlled the game start to finish and came away with a 20-4 win. Davis is enthusiastic despite the loss. He returns all his girls into the 11-12 slot next year, and with their semi-final experience, he thinks theyll understand what is expected of them. Well know what we need to do and what are the keys we need to be successful, he said. In other action, the Junior All-Star softball team beat St. Cloud 11-0 and South Beach 20-10, but lost to state finalist Land O Lakes and state champion Tampa Bay.

YARD SALE PHOTO COURTESY OF M INOR LE A GUE A LL ST A RS Youths win minor league all-starsThe minor league all star team shown above defeated another group of minor league all-stars last month to win the minor league title. The all-star players were selected from six Baker County Little League teams. The nal game between the two all-star squads ended 20-3 in the fourth inning. Pictured in the photo above (not in order) are Tyce Moore, Kyler Holton, Colton Avera, Javen Nicholas, Timmy Seymour, Colby Sutton, Tyler Hardin, Wyatt Crockett, Brock Walker, Will Canaday, Bryer Walker and Easton Johnson. Coaches pictured in the rear (from left) are Billy Crockett, Thurman Walker and Mitch Canaday.Church volleyball has been keeping local athletes busy all summer long with good competition and fellowship. The league started play in early June and has been going strong despite having to dodge around adverse weather conditions. There are two important tournaments coming up in the next couple of weeks that will help determine the winners for the summer league. The youth will compete on Aug. 2 and 3 and the adults will tip off on Aug 6-10. The league is split into two divisions, leisure and competitive with teams for youth and adults. This season there are 11 competitive teams. First Baptist Church of Glen St. Mary fields three teams and Raiford Road also has three teams. First Baptist of Macclenny has two teams and there are teams from Christian Fellowship Temple, Destinys People and Sanderson Christian Revival Center. The leisure division is larger with from churches around the entire county. The adult leisure is so large we had to split it in two this year, said Missy Whitehead who organizes the league. We roughly estimate that weve got around 580 people playing in the different leagues. Whitehead has been playing since 1995 and has seen it grow and the facilities improve. When I was starting out we had poles and had to set up the nets before each game. Now we have the sand pits near the baseball fields and play twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. There is a natural difference between the leisure and competitive leagues. Whitehead describe the leisure leagues as like playing with your family, while the competitive league is just that competitive, with spiking allowed. But both leagues stress the fellowship and ministry as much as the play. The game opens and closes with a prayer and the players and coaches try to maintain their faith throughout the games. Sometimes there are speakers or a band will perform. We try to witness through our actions on and off the field, said Lew Boyette, the coach of CFT. If a player makes a mistake or hits a bad shot we try to be encouraging rather than sitting them down. This is Boyettes first year with the league and it has been a learning experience. Were 7-5, which is a lot better than I thought wed be doing since this is our first year playing together. PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Blake Rowan spikes the ball. Canaan Combs and Jordan Craven watch Sarah Gibson hit.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The Baker Bullets swim team sank the opposition on Sunday, July 22 to win the First Coast YMCA B Division championships at the DuPont YMCA. The Bullets scored 2617 points, outpacing Williams White Sharks by 340 points. They competed in the B Division for smaller Ys, defeating Williams, Johnson, Arlington and St. Augustine teams. The Bullets took 42 swimmers to the competition, including five who will swim for the high schools Wildcats in their inaugural season with a swim team. We are excited for this fall and the first ever team at our high school, said coach Andy Johnston. Jonathan Mobley, Ashton Ray, Andrea Clark, Kelsey Crain and Logan Todd competed in the 13-14 and senior divisions and will move on to the Wildcat swim team. They came out with a strong desire to win this championship, coach Trevor Nelson said of the Bullets. I had emphasized this since the beginning of the season. The Bullets fielded 16 swimmers in the 11-12 age division with Ethan Knight, Karlee Nelson, Kyrie Holman, Loriann Bliss, Danielle Hardin, Kali Faulk and Alaina Crawford reaching the podium with first, second or third place medals. The 9-10 year olds were led by Braeden Knight, Landon Prevatt and Alexandria Hill; while Han nah Peterson, Carson Shedd, Jack Putney, Jesse Harter and Jordyn Knight were among the winners in the younger divisions. Nelson was thrilled by the improvement the team made over the course of the season leading up to an outstanding showing in the championship when it counted most. All swimmers showed marked improvement throughout the year, he said following the meet. He said Tyler Hardin knocked 30 seconds off his 50yard butterfly time and Kelsey Crain trimmed 7 seconds from her 100-yard individual medley time. Nelsons comments were echoed by Coach Ann Hardin, who complimented the players on their sportsmanship. They take pride in their abilities by winning races but throughout the season our swimmers were recognized for going out of their way to congratulate and shake hands with their opponents, she said. Winners included Braeden Knight (9-10, 100-yard freestyle, 50 butterfly, 100 intermediate medley), Ashton Ray (13-14, 100 freestyle, 100 butterfly), Ethan Knight (11-12, 100 freestyle, 50 breast stroke, 100 intermediate medley, or IM), Alexandria Hill (9-10, 100 freestyle, 50 breaststroke), Kyler Wilkerson (7-8, 50 freestyle), Jonathan Mobley (se nior, 100 breaststroke, 50 freestyle, 100 yard IM), Logan Todd (13-14, 100 breaststroke), Karlee Nelson ( 11-12, 50 breaststroke, 100 IM), Carson Shedd (7-8, 25 breaststroke, 25 backstroke, 25 freestyle), Jack Putney (6 & under, 25 breaststroke, 25 back stroke), Andrea Clark (senior, 100 backstroke, 100 butterfly, 50 freestyle), Loriann Bliss (11-12 50 backstroke, 50 freestyle), Kyrie Holman (11-12, 50 butterfly), Hannah Peterson (9-10, 50 butterfly, 50 freestyle), Jesse Harter (7-8, 25 butterfly), Jordyn Knight (6 & under, 25 butterfly).

We have come a long way since our first season with only 13 swimmers, said Coach Alice Oswald. They make such tremendous progress over the course of the summer season. Many arrive with just a hint of a real swimming stroke or convinced that underwater swimming is all there is to know. I am so proud of the Baker Bullets.

Mr. Box, a longtime shing enthusiast and ex-resident of Southeast Missouri, is pictured with Donnie Wolford of Sikeston, MO at a bait store where they weighed the monster cat. Flatheads are said to have the tastiest meat of all catsh, and can weigh up to 120 pounds. They normally live to about 20 years. Sports can be a force for good or bad, and we saw a lot of that this week. The NCAA hit Penn State with unprecedented sanctions, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos reached out to their community and the Israelis stared history in the face. hit Penn State with a series of stiff penalties for their covering up the Jerry Sandusky sex ual abuse. The NCAA imposed a $60 million fine and removed 20 scholarships for the next four years. PSU will not be allowed to play in bowl games for four years and all their games were invalidated since the 1998 season. The university removed the statue of iconic coach Joe Paterno for his involvement in the cover-up. It was the most punitive measure taken by college sports governing body since 1987 when Southern Methodist University was hit with the so-called death penalty for a decade of recruit ing violations and other abuses. The penalties will impact PSU for years to come. SMU is only now beginning to climb its way back into prominence. My friend Denny Courson, host of Gators and More on WJXL 1010 AM, had an insightful comment about the penalties. The death penalty would have been less severe, said Courson. Penn States football program may never recover from this. Good for the NCAA for making this statement. Whether the Lions recover depends on the will of the university to continue its football program. What I hope is that most of that $60 million fine finds its way into the hands of those victimized by Sandusky and not the coffers of the NCAA. Quarterback Peyton Man ning and the Denver Broncos have been calling and visiting the victims of the theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado. Though the NFL players cant bring back those killed or comfort the wounded and traumatized, it does show that NFL teams are a big part of the community. It reminds me of the Auburn football team rallying around their traditional opponents from Alabama after the terrible tornado in Tuscaloosa. I wouldnt be a bit surprised if former Bronco Tim Tebow hadnt made some calls of his own. Seems like the sort of thing he would do. litical but we all know that it is not the case. From the boycotts of the 1980 and 1984 Olympics to the terrorist killings of Israeli athletes in 1972, the Olympics seems to be a place where politics and sports unfortunately mix. There have been three terrorist arrests near the Olympic Village in London over the last three weeks and the Israelis stepped up security around their own team as the opening ceremonies draw closer. Its too bad that we cant just relax and enjoy the best in sports without being reminded of the worlds dark side.
