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 firstname.lastname@example.orgMost of the time local candifocus on their own experience ads. But in recent weeks some of the ads have taken a decided ly different approach, leveling attacks against the opposition. The mud-slinging has been most apparent in the race for the Republican Partys candidate for sheriff in the general election. Second-time sheriff candidate Gregory Bohannon, 50, has published multiple ads calling into question newcomer Cameron Cowards conduct as a deputy with the St. Johns Mr. Bohannon has claimed his 28-year-old opponent failed security contract by not neatly maintaining an on-campus residence and received a reprimand from his superiors. Another ad said he was suspended for failing to submit evidence, and as a result, a criminal case was dismissed. A third ad asserts that Mr. Coward was disciplined and placed under investigation numerous times by his employer. Mr. Coward responded with his own message, which was repeated in the newspaper and at The Press candidate forum July 28, that the attack ads were outright lies and misleading. He also conveyed his commitment to running a clean campaign. In an effort to separate fact The Press reviewed the St. Johns County Sheriffs Mr. Bohannon had previously delivsisted of several hundred pages in all, to the newspaper at the candidate forum about a week prior to the review. Mr. Cowards most recent annual evaluation was positive. Hes received seven letters of commendation since he joined the sheriffs office in 2004 and multiple awards from his commanding life saving measures to a heart attack victim. Mr. Coward did, however, receive a one-day suspension for violating two department policies. taking actions or making state ments that tend to bring the ridicule ... which an internal investigation found Mr. Cam eron did by abandoning the mobile home he was residing in while serving as an on-campus security guard at Nease High School and allowing the property to become unkept. According to the candidates personnel files, Mr. Coward also failed to register the trailer and his drivers license was suspended when the citation issued in 2010 for the registration violation went unpaid. Mr. Coward had moved out of the residence, but failed to update his drivers license address, which is also violation of the Another internal investigation resulted in a letter of reprimand, but not a suspension as Mr. Bohannons campaign ad asserts, Mr. Coward said this week.

The decision means a new trial date will be set for later this year on the two felony counts pending against Char leton D. Lauramore. He is charged with raping a girl un der the age of 12 on at least five occasions between December, 2005 and June of the following year. Both the 45-year-old defendant and the victim testified earlier that day before the six-member jury began deliberation in the late afternoon. The jury foreman sent a note to Judge Phyllis Rosier shortly after inquiring about the maximum sentences under law for sexual battery and battery. Before the jury was sent to deliberate, the judge mentioned during routine instructions that those two charges are options if the panel voted for conviction rather an acquittal. In his closing remarks, assistant public defender George Nelson remarked to the jury that it had Mr. Lauramores life in your hands and Judge Rosier decided that may have been prejudicial. In fact, Mr. Lauramore could get life if convicted. The jury that included five females was dismissed and the case will be re-set. The original trial date of July 11 had been twice postponed, once due to illness of assistant state attor ney Lorelie Papel and the second time because of a feared outbreak of chicken pox at county jail where the defendant is housed. Mr. Lauramore has a history of violent behavior, and in October, 2006 was sentenced to five years in prison for felony battery. He was released in the summer of 2011 and the victim made her allegations while he was still in a west Florida prison.

The county has moved the August 20 hearing on the Tampa-based companys pro posal to the courthouse in anticipation of a large crowd attending the 6 pm meeting. Last June commissioners delayed consideration of zoning exceptions to accommodate Old Castles mining plans and those of Inc. of Lake Wales, for two months. Thats when a group of concerned residents launched a campaign to spur opposition to the plans and pressure commissioners, three of whom are up for re-election this year, to vote against the exception applications. Old Castle and Jahna hope to mine hundreds of acres at two sites southeast and northeast of Macclenny, respectively, during the next several decades. They must obtain the exceptions because mining is not generally permitted in the agricultural zoning districts where the tracts are located. Both properties have historically been used for timber production. In the meantime, Old Castle relations consultant from Fernandina Beach with experience helping companies combat the often negative perception of the mining industry. Ms. Revell said shes been doing public outreach to meet face-to-face with anybody and everybody we can. Shes set up meetings between the head of Old Castles aggregates division, Dennis McClelland, and neighboring landowners, business people, church groups, elected officials and county staff. But not everyone wants to meet with the company, Mr. McClelland said during an hour-long conversation with County Commissioner Michael Crews the afternoon of August 3 at the county administration building. The Press was invited to the summit as well. They have their mind made up and it doesnt really make a difference what the facts are, Mr. McClelland said of the projects detractors. From Mr. Crews view, Old Castles attorney at the last hearing, Wyman Duggan, insulted the board by telling commissioners they should consider the companys application in light of the law, not public opinion. The publics concern is my concern, Mr. Crews told Mr. McClelland and Ms. Revell, who was also at the meeting. Now, the company is attempting to polish its public image. Old Castle is buying ad space to tout the renomic impact study and seeking a permit from the St. Johns River Water Management District to withdraw 2-3 million gallons per day from a deep aquifer well.

How many accidents have occurred since December, 2011 involving hard-working people standing out in the heat for minimum wage to promote business? How will schools, the fire department and churches be impacted if they cant do fund raisers (on street corners)? If the city passes this ordinance, will it apply to all human signs with no provisions for county events? Its senseless that its not just the small family-owned businesses that have invested in this county that are taking the ordinance beating now theyre messing with the big boys who could pack up tomorrow and not drop a bead of sweat over this pettiness. I questioned a county or dinance (the Sunday alcohol Sports Grill) and it started a political uprising. The ban is still on the books, yet selected businesses are allowed to violate it. No arrest or citation have been made for decades. I hope many show up (at the Macclenny meeting the eve ning of August 14) to support the businesses affected by the human sign ban. They need to stand tall and refuse to be bullied.Debi Doyle MacclennyMuch has been said about the appropriateness of our county manager also being the Republican state committeeman. Some have men the heads of government in Tallahassee. It is to Baker Countys advantage for C. J. Thompson as state committeeman to be able to meet with these individuals at the Republican quarterly meetings. The gov ernment in Tallahassee is largely Republican and Mr. Thompson has established himself as representing the needs of Baker County. As county manager he has a working knowledge of Baker Countys requirements, as state committeeman he has direct access to TallaThe oath (as a committeeman) requires that the individual not use a Republican. It does not say he cannot be employed by someone who is not Republican. Jolene MarshallMacclenny School board candidates Andy Johnston and Clayton Griffis bashed our school system during the political rally a week ago Saturday. Mr. Johnston said the (school district) budget needed to be looked at, and suggested that non-instructional positions and substitute teachers need to be removed or take a pay cut. This hits home, because I have been a non-instructional employee 13 years, and I take pride in my job and work very hard, as do others including assistants, cafeteria workers, secretaries, maintenance, bus drivers and custodians. I am not sure who Mr. Johnston thinks will replace these people, or where the money will come from to put teachers into the place of all the assistants, especially since the state keeps cutting budgets. As stated both by Mr. Johnston and in a letter to the editor last week, he is a businessman and the school board is the business side board member than business, like looking out for the needs of stu dents, staff, the community, dealing with state mandates and other areas. We cant cut our way to better schools! said the school district is one of the lowest in FCAT scores, which is simply not true. one in the state on FCAT scores, and this year we were number six in reading and eighth in math. I graduated with honors from BCHS and know many more people proud to say they did, too. Both of these gentlemen said they would change the fact that teacher pay is based on student performance. They should know that the school board has no control over this; it is mandated by the state.Katie Rhoden Soon to be a teacher SandersonBreak tradition; lengthen annual school year termCity ban on signs senseless nagging feeling comes around that perhaps we should re-think traditional school calendars, or more specifically, the nine-month school year broken by a nearly three-month summer vacation. The majority of industrialized countries dont use it because that large gap between grade levels is believed to be too lengthy. It breaks the learning cycle and puts the burden on teachers to bring students back to earth on vital matters like concentration, recalling what they learned last year and delving into new material. China, for instance, has a school year that runs from early September to mid-July some six weeks longer than ours (school days run Japan requires 240 days (vs. 180 here) and gives students three equal breaks from April when new levels begin through March. In South Korea, the year is divided into two semesters March to July and September to February with intervening one-month breathers. The school calendar in widespread use in the U.S. was standard ized about 1900 around the model that emerged when children were needed to help on the family farms. Today about three percent of American families derive income from agriculture, and the need for manual labor has greatly diminished. We cant use the needed on the farm argument to justify the sum mer break anymore. In fact, we havent been able to use it for more than a half-century. conditioned (except for pockets at BCHS) and the buildings stand essentially idle for nearly one-quarter of each year. As for summer being the best time for travel, who sez? With the interstate system and air travel, you can find a neat place to go just about anytime. The most compelling argument for changing the system, it seems, has nothing to do with any of the above, or with what other countries do for that matter. The change is needed to motivate young minds. Ten-plus week summer breaks run the danger of turning them into mush, particularly when the default involves sitting around an air conditioned house all day being passively entertained by electronics. Good summer camps ameliorate some of that, but they are expensive and for many children in Baker County inaccessible. In households with both parents working, often children are poorly supervised. Family vacations are nice, but out of reach for many working families. And they cant last all summer anyway. Teachers will tell you the coming weeks after school opens can be rough. Preparation for the all-important FCAT tests begins immediately, and the detrimental effects of all those days out of school since late May and early June have to be overcome to move a class of kids forward. I like the Japanese plan. Including weekends, it gives students and teachers 125 days off each year and the intervening breaks could be built around our traditional holidays (that is, if were still allowed to keep our traditional holidays). A change this radical would necessitate major alterations to school budgets with the addition of 60 more days of school, and proponents (including many teachers) who crave the long break in the present schedule wont like it. It would likely take several years to phase in a new system, and selling it to all 50 states well, thats the tough part. But a new way to look at school calendars is needed; children who will be expected to compete in a global market simply have too much idle time to fall behind, and they havent been needed on the farm for decades. team. Winning the gold medal rocks!! Wearing these purple sparkly outfits does not. Who picked these outfits? Oh well, it could be worse. Did you see what the Russians are wearing? you know I saved the Olympic Games? Not these Olympics, the ones in Salt Lake City in 2002. I have a new plan to save money on our Olympic team for the 2016 Olympics. Im outsourcing it to India. They only have 2 medals and we have 63 with the better part of a week to go. We should be able to pay our new athletes $12.95 for a gold instead of $25,000. We can apply that to the deficit.

ursday, August 9, 2012 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, August 9, 2012 JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR email@example.comThree bridges damaged during Tropical Cedar Creek Bridge on CR 127, which lost a roughly 100-foot section. Motorists should take CR 229 to CR 124 to CR 127 to bypass the bridge. Road department director, Robert Fletcher, said help fund its repair. It has to be rebuilt, said Mr. Fletcher. Theres no way around that. I cant give you any time frame. It has to go through the state and the feds. Florida Department of Transportation spokesqualify for federal funds, but its unclear when work would move forward. There are no funds in the work program to re place [the bridge], she said via e-mail this week. The repair costs are approaching the cost it would take to replace [the bridge]. It does qualify for feder al aid. It is a candidate for replacement, but outside of our 5-year work program. The detour for the closed Greens Creek Bridge at CR 229 S. is not long CR 130 to Richardson Road to South Prong Cemetery Road to CR 229 but it passes over a single-lane bridge on Richardson. To avoid that, drivers must travel about 18 miles out of the way to take SR 121, Mr. Fletcher said. There is major erosion around the wooden pilings supporting the bridge, which makes it unstable. Mr. Fletcher said the Greens Creek Bridge is on FDOTs replacement list, but not until 2017. Theyre trying to get it moved up for funding next year, in 2013. In the meantime, the state has temporary Acrow Bridges we can borrow to get trafFunding from the Federal Highway Administration, which FDOT must seek on the countys behalf, federal aid. The Reynolds Road Bridge on CR 120 into Georgia is perhaps the least traveled of the three bridges, Fletcher said. Much of its foundation is still underwater, however. We have to wait for water to come down so we can do our own inspections, said Mr. Fletcher. We know we have some erosion around it.

We can trim a top-heavy administration by not lling vacant positions and consolidating job responsibilities. Currently we dont get bids for the best prices for items under $50,000.

ON AUGUST 14TH GIVE YOUR CHILD A VOICE. forts, combined with the soonto-be completed analysis of the mining the plans by a indepen dent, third-party engineer, selected by the county and paid should help the company, and perhaps, ease fears that mining could adversely impact the local water supply and cause traffic headaches on the countys roadways. We dont want to be seen like were making a last ditch effort or sales pitch, she said. Were just trying to be transparent and tell people who we are and what were about. Mr. McCelland explained that the company has calculated the impact of its proposed water withdrawals from the lower aquifer. He said the companys analysis shows that there will be no impact on the upper aquifer, where most residential wells pull water from, and a drawdown of 1.3 inches on the middle layer of the aquifer, where the City of Macclenny obtains its water supply. ocean anyway, Mr. McClelland said of the water in the lower aquifer. The economic impact study, commissioned by Old Castle from Fishkind & Associates of Orlando, has not been released by the company yet, but Mr. McCelland said it estimates $6.8 million of commerce during the 12to 18-month construction phase of the mine, including $2.5 million in construction earnings and 72 total construction jobs. Will all those be here? Prob ably not, he said. The mining operation itself will generate $4.4 million in an nual economic impact following construction, Mr. McClelland said, including 16 permanent jobs, local taxes and ancillary impacts like purchases at the hard ware store and work for trucking companies who would be hired to haul the mined material. To address concerns about potential damage to local roads, Mr. McClelland said Old Castle would assist with road repairs if damage occurs near its project site. If something happens on the county road, well be there to help you, he said. Mr. McClelland also said the company would agree to donate the mining property, 436 acres in all, which will include wetlands and some 190 acres of man-made lakes, to the county for public use after operations cease. What the company will not agree to, however, is accepting a zoning exception that expires after a few years, which the City of Macclenny has requested from the commission. That will not work, he said. Its like borrowing money on a house for 20 years, but you can only live in it for two years and you have to keep paying on it for 18 years. Unlike Old Castle, the other pursued public outreach efforts since the last hearing. Its attorney, Corby Myers, said Jahna may be in a position to help fund road repairs and maintenance, but its not open to a limited zoning exception, either. Our initial investment is $6$10 million and not knowing if youre going to be there a year or two from now makes any kind of said Mr. Myers. What weve been working on is getting the information in a timely manner to the independent third party reviewer, he said. Hopefully that will quell some of the fears of the public on the water use and theyll see theres minimal to no impact on water resources. Commissioners may be faced with another standing room-only crowd later this month at the courthouse. If recent history is any indication, many will voice reservations about to the sand mining projects. Petition signatures being collected in the community against the projects are rumored to have some 2500 names, according to Commissioner Crews. When that many folks come out and say there opposed to something like this, your works cut out for you, he said.

Charlie Wade Alred, 32, of Westville in Holmes County was arrested on August 2 after being interviewed by sheriffs investi gators. He denied the allegations made by the victim, age 36. Police arrested a 16-year-old boy described as homeless and without a guardian and charged him with burglary and grand theft of a residence on Benny Givens Ct. north of Sanderson on August 5. Deputy Jacob Satterwhite said the boy was found hiding under a porch attached to the YMCA building in Jonesville Park off CR ted at the park minutes earlier by William Lee Jr., whose parents residence was entered via a bedroom door earlier. The boy had on a pair of boots taken from the residence and Mr. Lee later recovered jewelry, a watch and coins also taken from his parents. They were stashed in a backpack under the same porch. The officer also spoke to William Lee Sr. and his wife Penny, who like their son had seen the suspect near their residence earlier.

Mr. Arnett had fled into nearby woods and a subsequent search by a county K-9 dog was conducted without success. Shortly after deputies left the property, they were called back when Mr. Arnett returned and threatened to flee back into the woods with the couples three children. When Deputy Combs confronted him, he gave the child in his possession to Ms. Sanders father and was taken into custody. Mr. Arnett allegedly resisted with a head butt to several officers when they were placing him in a patrol car and that resulted in a charge of resisting with violence in addition to domestic battery.

We have two daughters, Traci Wheeler and Teresa Lauramore and five grandchildren.Issue #1: BUDGETFacts: We are experiencing the worst recession in our lifetime. Even after facing budget cuts every year, for the past few years we are one of the few districts that have not had to lay off employees or cut services to students. Even with the cuts we have been able to meet state mandated classroom reductions in student numbers per class.Issue #2: 28 YEARS ON SCHOOL BOARDFacts: I am proud of the fact I have served 28 years on the board. I would like to thank the people of Baker County for allowing me to serve this long. I feel if I were not doing a good job the people would not have allowed me to serve this long. I have served with seventeen different people in the other four seats. I know if people dont think you are doing a good job they will vote you out.Issue #3: MY OPPONENT CALLED ME A CAREER POLITICIANFacts: I consider myself a career servant. I was seeking a means to serve the children and people of Baker County. It just so happens the position I felt I could best serve in was a political position and the people have allowed me to continue that service. There have been several distinguished servants who have served as long or longer than myself in political positions. Mr. Joe Dobson, Mr. T.J. Raulerson, Mr. John Barton, Mr. Roy Harvey and Dr. Gary Dopson. Does my opponent consider these gentlemen to be career politicians?Issue #4: BEEN ON THE BOARD TOO LONGFacts: who are doing a good job because they have been there too long.Issue #5: TIME FOR A CHANGEFacts: There are two kinds of change: Change for the better and change for the worse. Take a long hard look at both candidates and decide whether this would be a change for better or worse. My experience and leadership ability makes me best for the job. Dont vote for change just for the sake of change.Issue #6: MY OPPONENT ASKED HOW I CAN ASK THE PEOPLE TO ELECT ME FOR FOUR MORE YEARS.Facts: When you prepare, work hard and make well informed decisions it is very easy to ask the people to vote for you. I dont understand how my opponent can ask people to vote for him when he has done nothing to prepare himself for this job. He has no idea what the school board does.Issue #7: PREPARED TO SERVEFacts: I attended school board meetings for approximately one year and served on advisory councils before deciding to run. My opponent is the only school board candidate in the last 28 years who has not attended any school board meetings before deciding to run or after qualifying to run. He has no idea what the school board does.Issue #8: LAYING OFF NON-INSTRUCTIONAL EMPLOYEES TO BALANCE THE BUDGETFacts: Non-instructional employees are a very important part of our school system. During my time on the board I dont recall ever having to lay off employees, not even in years when we had funding cuts in the middle of the year. We have been a conservative board allowing us to have reserve funds to cover these situations.Issue #9: POLITICAL PARTY AFFILIATIONFacts: There are rumors out there as to who belongs to which political party in the non-partisan Issue #10: REASONS FOR RUNNINGFacts: During the political forum, my opponent made the statement, I stood in line at Westside and still did not get the teacher I wanted, thats the only reason Im running. I can tell you I have 5000 plus reasons Im running, every student and employee of the Baker County School Board.The most important facts in this campaign are: (regardless of the outcome) I will still have my family and friends. I will still put my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and I will continue to be a blessed man. Your vote and support on August 14 will be greatly appreciated.

An assistant state attorney later dismissed the case against the suspect because the chain of custody had been compromised, the investigators report states. Mr. Bohannan claimed that his opponent was suspended as a result of the investigation. While Mr. Cowards personnel files note a one-day, unpaid suspension was recommended as pun ishment, Mr. Coward said the suspension never took place and he was not, as Mr. Bohannans ad stated, relieved of his duties as a Rather, Mr. Coward said, he lost his training officer duties last year as a result of his off-duty activities, including launching his campaign to become Baker Countys next sheriff. A number of other complaints against Mr. Coward, one of which has appeared in Mr. Bohannons ads, have been investigated by be unsustained. Mr. Coward took issue with a campaign ad stating he was placed under investigation for refusing to assist a stranded elderly female motorist. Mr. Cowards personnel file includes a complaint from a fe plaint says the motorist alleged temporarily stranded on the interstate at 10 pm. The allegations were not sustained following an investigation, records show. Mr. Coward said the driver was in fact not elderly, as his opponent says, and did not need her tire changed. Instead, Mr. Coward said, the driver was a UNF student, likely in her 20s, and the he directed her to an air pump at a nearby gas station, he said. Other candidates have been criticizing their opponents as well, though some more directly than others. Absentee candidate vs. career politician In the District 1 contest on the school board, 28-year incumbent Dwight Crews has noted that has not attended a school board meeting since he announced his his lack of attendance. He said he last visited the school board more than two years ago. I went one time and thats all week, adding that his experience before the school board, in part, spurred him to seek the ofresponsibilities of school board members are clearly outlined by cation, he said. while, has been directing its ire at and using buzz words like career politician in its ads. Mr. Crews three decades, but he contends thats a testament to his effectiveness in the post. Competing portraits of local schools In the other school board race, in which incumbent Patricia Weeks is facing Macclenny businessman Andy Johnston, the campaigns havent become personal, but they do present differing images of the school district. A recent ad from Mr. Johnstons campaign points out the district is ranked 51st out of 67 in the state, 43 percent of children here failed the FCAT reading test, almost 40 percent failed the math FCAT and 64 percent failed the science test. A examination of the 2012 FCAT results shows that two of the three percentages are accu rate, with the share of students failing the science test being 10 points lower at 54 percent. cal graduation rate to make their case that new leadership is needed in the district. the graduation rate here is lower than in Nassau, Union, St. Johns and Clay counties, and that less than two out of three minorities graduate. Both assertions are true for the 2010-11 school year. More ation rate for black students was 64.3 percent that year. The Florida Department of the 2011-12 graduation rates. Mr. Johnstons contention cantly behind surrounding counties in graduation rates is partially accurate. The gap between Baker Countys most recent graduation rate, 83.3 percent, and the rates of Nassau, St. Johns and Union counties is roughly 10 percentage points. The difference between Baker County and Columbia Countys 86.8 percent graduation rate is 3.5 percentage points, and Baker County tops Duval, Bradford and Putnam counties in terms of the share of students it graduates. What expense account? There hasnt been many jabs thrown in the District 1 county commission contest between for mer commissioner James Croft chael Crews in the weeks leading up to the August 14 primary. Both men are registered Republicans. Due to the lack of an opponent from a different party in the general election, all registered voters may cast ballots in the race. Still, Mr. Crofts recent ad de tailing his plans should he win the election included his pledge to support eliminating expense accounts for commissioners. County Manager C.J. Thompmissioners are given monthly stipends for their cell phones ($50) and travel ($100), but do not have county-issued credit cards or access to any other public funds for personal use. The stipends are intended to cover travel expenses and calls related to their official duties, like attending meetings of various regional boards on which the county has a interest or taking calls from constituents. Commissioners are not required to submit receipts, however.

The facts, compiled from of cial county archives, reveal Mr. Croft voted to increase property taxes to the highest levels of the past thirty years and he voted to increase county spending by 609.87% in just four years. This is a totally opposite direction I have supported with my voting record. While Mr. Crofts ads say one thing, his voting record says another.Mr. Crofts Voting Record 1st year in of ce voted yes to 9.44 mills, 30-year high in taxes and to increase county spending by 364.29% 2nd year in of ce voted yes to 9.44 mills, 31-year high in taxes and a spending increase of 13.28% 3rd year in of ce voted yes to 9.44 mills, 32-year high in taxes and a spending increase of 20.0% 4th year in of ce voted yes to 9.44 mills, 33-year high in taxes and a spending increase of 12.48% Mills represent the value in which property taxes are determined, the higher the mill the higher your tax My Voting Record 1st year in of ce voted yes to 7.43 mills, 4th lowest tax rate ever and to increase county spending by 2.55% 2nd year in of ce voted yes to 7.14 mills, the 3rd lowest tax rate ever and a spending decrease of 2.52% 3rd year in of ce voted yes to 7.14 mills, the 2nd lowest tax rate ever and a spending decrease of 14.08% 4th year in of ce voted yes to 7.14 mills, the lowest tax rate ever and a spending decrease. *4th year budget currently being worked on and it will re ect a decrease in spending.Mr. Crofts budget record as Tri-County Recycling CoordinatorFrom 2002 to 2006 while serving as the Tri-County Recycling coordinator, Mr. Crofts budgets increased an unbelievable 57% while generating a miniscule 7% increase in revenue, and ran a de cit every year.

How much will it cost the taxpayers of Baker County? Whats in it for Baker County? County commissioners hoped to have some answers to those of the leading agency involved in the Northeast Florida Regional Transportation Study Commission met with them to discuss the proposal during an informal meeting at 4 pm on August 7. But Brian Teeple, chief execuida Regional Planning Council, said it was too early yet to know how much counties would be assessed for their portion of the total costs, and too early to know the works for Baker County. Afterward, commissioners said they wont be inclined to par ticipate until they get concrete answers to those two very important questions. Mr. Teeple said it could be early next year before costs are known. He also told commissioners that counties must make their intentions known before the Flor ida Legislature meets next year to vote on whether to create the proposed regional transportation commission. Currently, there are five re gional transportation authorities in Florida in all major populated areas except the northeastern corner of the state. Mr. Teeple said the sixth regional transpor tation authority could include the seven counties in Northeast FlorNassau, Putnam and St. Johns. Membership of the four counties in the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns would be enough for the Legislature to create the new agency, Mr. Teeple said. He added, however, that the study commission also wants Baker, Putnam and Flagler to participate. We hope there will be op(transportation) projects, he said. He told county commissioners he didnt have to have their answer immediately because imple mentation wont come until next year, assuming state lawmakers approve the concept. would be assessed on a per capita basis, adding, Were trying to keep it as low as possible. At one time, he said, the cost to administer the proposed commission was estimated at $200,000 to $300,000 to hire a planning director and supporting staff. More recent cost prothan about $150,000, he said. One thing that must be accomplished in order for the plan to become successful is to identify dedicated funding sources for necessary capital for transportation improvements. Mr. Teeple said possibly sales taxes and gasoline taxes could be among those sources targeted. The Northeast Florida Regional Transportation Study Commission has been working for over a year and a half to examine the need for a long-term plan to coordinate multimodal regional transportation to enhance overall economic competitiveness and mobility for the region. The study commission has outlined the following as support for a regional transportation ap portation system is central to the future economic competitiveness and quality of life for Northeast Florida. enhanced coordination of planners and implementers on a regional scale specifically for recated regional funding for regional transportation. tent regional voice on transportation issues is increasingly important in the successful pursuit of state, federal and private transportation funding. is expected to be presented to the Florida Legislature in December.

Because such a large crowd is expected for the hear ings, they will be conducted in the larger Courtroom No. 1 in the county courthouse instead of the much smaller county commission chambers. During a previous hearing on the sand mining proposals the county administration building was swamped with opponents, many of whom managed to get inside the commission chambers to voice their objections to the mining proposals. Most of those expressed concerns for the adverse impact min ing would have on the Floridan Aquifer and local water supplies, as well as increased heavy truck county. 2012-13 county budget at 3 pm on August 27 and September 4 and scheduled public hearing dates for the new budget at 6 pm on at 6 pm on October 2, one day afclaiming September 12 as Muscular Dystrophy Association Fireproclamation was requested by for their many years of volunteer work in annual boot drives to coltrophy.MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF For nearly a third of all stu dents in Baker County public schools getting an education is only part of their campus lives. They also require special services that only a trained medical pro fessional can deliver. During the last school year, 1,466 students were treated by school nurses for an assortment of conditions ranging from aller gies and asthma to much more serious health problems, accord ing to the 2011-12 Annual School Health Services Report approved by the school board on the eve ning of August. 6 We have a lot of sick children and they need professional care, said Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson. Some of them have serious illnesses. School district nurses often administer medications and perform medical procedures for many students, including some with major illnesses such as can cer, diabetes, heart problems, breathing disorders, kidney dis orders and cerebral palsy. The highest reported medi cal problem among students was 500 cases of asthma. The school district also reported 403 chil dren with allergies, including 80 with severe allergies; 50 prone to seizures, including epilepsy; 40 with cardiac conditions; 19 diabetics; 11 with kidney dis orders; four with cancer; three with bleeding disorders; two with psychiatric conditions; and two with sickle-cell anemia. Additionally, 10 students had a rare condition known as os teogenesis imperfecta, a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily. Another 307 with other health conditions that required the care and atten tion of school nurses. Were very pleased to have such good nurses in our schools, Mrs. Raulerson said, adding that about 93 percent of all the students who receive treatment from a school nurse are able to go back to the classroom. In a related matter, the board adopted a new 2012-14 School Health Services Plan that con tains all the policies and pro cedures for implementing ba sic health services to all public school students, as mandated by cation. The 27-page report states that parents will be required at the beginning of each school year to cards with updated medical in formation on their children for review by school nurses. Further, school health nurses are required to develop individ ualized health care plans and emergency plans for students with active and chronic health needs that need to be met dur ing school or school sponsored activities. The board did not discuss the 2012-14 health services plan, nor the 2011-12 health services report, which Chairman Dean detailed document. However, he expressed pride in the quality of treatment given to the students by nursing staff. We do have a very good health program in our schools, and a new operators handbook for all bus drivers for the coming were changed very little from last year. We did some tweaking and shifted some riders around but here are no new bus routes, Johnnie Jacobs, director of transportation, told the board. We dont need new routes. Mrs. Raulerson praised the transportation department for the good job it does transporting students safely and in a timely fashion, considering all the dirt roads in the county that are in rough condition. Those rough dirt roads are the major reason six buses were de clared surplus and approved by the board for sale to the highest were worn out by years of travel ing over bumpy roads. The dirt roads we have in our county pretty well beat our buses up, especially those with about 200,000 miles or more on them, One of the surplus buses, a 1999 International, has only 117,252 miles, Mr. Jacobs said. But it is worn out and no longer safe for children to ride, he said. Some of these buses no lon ger meet (safety standards) for putting students on, he said, adding that some have been re paired too many times to justi molish two wooden portable classroom buildings behind and need to be removed. These portables were used at one time to house the extended day program and are no longer being used. In addition, these two portables are in unsatisfac tory condition and are beyond Denny Wells, director of facili ties, maintenance and property control. Another portable, this one be hind the Family Service Center, also was approved for demolition at Mr. Wells request because he said the structure had been several years ago was declared a total loss by the insurance com pany.B AKER COUNTY COMMISSION B AKER COUNTY SCHOOL BO ARDWary of transportation alliance1466 students treated at schoolsThe BCHS drama department and the Baker County Community Theatre have an interesting and varied program for the uptions.

I would like to see us enhance our a er school extended day programs with art, science and music. My goal is to see that every child has access to textbooks for use at home. 83% of the school district budget is salaries and bene ts. We need to explore other insurance options. at way we can provide a ordable bene ts for our instructional and non-instructional employees, and they can take home more of their paycheck. When facing important issues it is imperative that teachers have a seat at the table. ey are most knowledgeable when dealing with issues that directly impact our children. Our children are given far too many standardized tests. is is taking away from instruction time. We have to eliminate non-mandatory standardized tests so our teachers can teach.

PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Donations give the middle school oce a fresh look for the new year The front oce at Baker County Middle School, a second home of sorts from school secretary Mandy Kinghorn (above), was recently remodeled with new furniture, including red leather couches, fresh blue paint, a at screen monitor and wall-mounted Bobcat, the schools mascot. More than $1000 worth of furniture from Gibson McDonald in Macclenny was donated by school board member Patricia Weeks and a BCMS teacher, who asked to remain anonymous, chipped in, too. School administrators and front oce sta volunteered during the summer break to paint and assist with the remodel.BOB GER ARD | STAFF I dont normally review local restaurants. Its generally a bad idea and I only do if something very unusual is going on. The Village Store has something very different for Baker County. The food is completely different from what we usually expect from local restaurants. It would be more at home in Avondale or Riverside than the corner of US 90 and 5th Street in downtown Macclenny. Its more like a bistro than the kind of steak or fast food or bar becue restaurant that were used to. The food is good and theres a kind of artsy ambience about the place that is refreshing. Ive eaten there for both lunch and dinner and been impressed on both occasions. For lunch I had a white bean minestrone soup that was better than any Ive had at the chain restaurants fresh veggies, white beans and a tomato broth that wasnt too tangy. I could have made a meal of just the soup and little corn My entre was a very tasty seafood quiche. The pastry was light and not too soggy as quiche can get. The quiche was fluffy shrimps. Lunch included a big slice of watermelon which made a nice taste contrast. My only knock on the lunch was my tea was more fruit juice than tea. Instead of a hint of lemon it was more lemonade with a hint of tea. The dinner menu is limited to only two entrees. Its a pris menu, which means you can order three or four courses. I ordered the four courses for a very reasonable $20. They included an appetizer, salad, entre and dessert. The appetizer was a tomato tartlet, a small tart of cheese and a reduced tomato. It was tangy with set by the salad. The salad was a deconstruction all the parts and pieces were there but separate. There was a sculpted tomato with olive, spinach with vinaigrette, a sliced gherkin, cucumbers and yellow squash and small slices of buffalo mozzarella. It was delicious; the highlight of the meal. The entre was slices of roast pork over garlic mashed potato and roasted vegetables. The pork was tender and succulent and the potatoes creamy with not too much garlic. The roast vegetables were a little over cooked for my My least favorite course was the dessert. It was slices of orange cake in cream served in a parfait glass. The cream could have been a little sweeter or perhaps served as a slice of cake covered in cream. It was good, just not up to the rest of the meal. The restaurant itself is small, but interesting visually with lots of art. The prices are very good and the servings plentiful.

The local contingent of 13and 14-yearolds was one of five teams to claim a berth in the state title round after advancing through tough district and sectionals. in the state bracket, earning the team a third place. They notched wins over St. Cloud (11-0) and Miami South Beach (10-4). Coach P.J. Lefebvre had high praise for the team that clinched the North Florida Little League district 11 title with twin wins over Hilliard, including a dominating 32-3 rout. After securing the Section Three title with a bye win, the local all-stars turned their at team round robin state bracket. Coaches Lefebvre, Zary Alford, Taylor Jones, Tina Fraze and Steven Hancock drilled the team hard to ready it for the sweltering heat expected during the week end tournament. Our girls were fire at the plate. As a team we had a .350 batting average, with seven players over .300 and both Melanie Sweat and Jesselynn Williams leading the way with averages over .500, said Coach Lefebvre. Ashton Alford was the teams go-to slugger, driving in ten runs, while third base anchor Angel Jackson smacked two triples. The teams starting pitchers Callie Paine and Kaylon Golden were consistent from the circle and the team shone on defense. Madison Kennedy led the de fense, handling the grueling heat while catching all four games. Shortstop Ashley Cook, along Peyton Staggs and Lindsey Love, limited opponents scoring opportunities with solid defense efforts. Coach Lefebvre expressed his appreciation to team moms Lin da Funk and Cheryl Kennedy for their help with handling the loHe also thanked the large con tingent of families and fans who made the trek over for the threeday tournament. We had tremendous support from the girls families and from the area businesses. Their contributions enabled us to give the whole team a memory they will never forget. The experience they gained will pay off in the future as they progress to their high school careers, said Lefebvre.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS As Wildcat fans get ready for a new football season there are a couple of interesting match-ups that should be very entertaining. regular season when the Wildcats travel to Lake City to take on the Columbia High Tigers. Though you may be tempted the game, as you sit in the stands and enjoy the play, focus in on the battle between defensive end CeCe Jefferson and Tiger offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. The 6 275 lb. offensive tackle is the top player in his position as ranked by MaxPreps. Were not talking about the state; were talking about the country. It will be interesting to see how Jefferson matches up against Tunsil. The Cats have a couple of ex citing games in the middle of the season. The first is a rematch with Clay County in Green Cove Springs. What makes it interest ing is it pits the Wildcats against a team that beat them by one point at Memorial Stadium. Add to that mix the fact that the Blue Devils are a district foe and it makes for a very spicy encounter. In the geographical center of the season is a rematch with Bolles in Jacksonville. This is another might have been game that BCHS lost by a single point. The Cats were up by two touchdowns before the perennial powerhouses came roaring back and BCHS will be ready to play. Its its at Skinner-Barco Stadium where Bolles rarely falters. The last district game of the year features another couple of interesting match-ups. Last year the Wildcats had one of the best senior quarterbacks in the area when they came face to face with Bishop Kennys hurler John Wolford. The junior signal caller has already had Notre Dame and Alabama playing nice, plus Clemson, Louisville and most of the big names have come knocking. The quarterback has an excellent receiver in Ahmad Fulwood, also a top prospect. Fulwood is an elite receiver who can catch everything within his reach, according to Scout.com. The Wildcats did a nice job of controlling Wolford last year, holding him to only 173 yards in the air.Ive been watching the Olympics a long time. I dont mean a lot of years, although thats true too; I mean Im on summer vacation from school so I turn it on when I get up and turn it off when I go to bed. I just dont want to miss anything historic. Theres been plenty of historic already. Usain Bolt doing it again in the 100 meters. Mi chael Phelps being well Michael Phelps. Missy Franklin being adorable as well as helping to lead the womens swim team to prominence. The women gym nasts from the USA winning the 1996. That doesnt even scratch the surface. Ive noticed a few other things as well. The Chinese are the new Soviets. Used to be that the USA would go head-to-head with the Soviet Union. After its breakup, the US was the at the top of the medal count, but in recent years the Chinese have taken over where the Soviets left off. Its interesting how the Olympics can often mimic the political spectrum. As the Chinese gain in power around the world they start to challenge the US, the worlds only superpower. It isnt unusual that the Chinese, like the Soviets before them, use the games as an instrument to project that power. Theyve taken over the crazy training regimens where kids are taken from their parents at five years old and moved into dorms to learn to be Olympians. Diver Wu Minxia was asked about her life and she said that she trains, eats and sleeps. Thats all. The US and the Chinese have bounced back and forth in the medal standings. The Chinese often dont go head-to-head with the USA. They concentrate on medals in sports like badminton and ping pong where we dont shine. Heres something else Ive noticed. Athletes personalities often are a mirror of their event. In were wound up like springs. They pranced around, mugged at the camera and posed. Others, the shooters, equestrians and long distance runners, were calm and thoughtful. It was all about concentrating and the mental part of the game, and in teresting to note the differences.Free football campThe First Community Church and Save Sandersons Children organization are co-hosting a youth football camp on August 18 at Jonesville Park north of Sanderson.
