COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF Two weeks after sand mining proposals for hundreds of rural acres in Baker County were withdrawn to allow more time for regulatory agencies to study the plans, a county commissioner has hatched a plan to stop them permanently. Commissioner Mark Hartley had planned to introduce an ordinance to prohibit sand mining in agricultural areas at the end of the commission meeting on the evening of September 4. But he decided at the last minute to postpone the matter, saying he needed more time to review the draft ordinance before moving forward with his idea. I want to read it over to make sure its exactly what we want to do, he said after the meeting was adjourned shortly before 6 pm. The countys present zoning code allows mining operations on lands with agricultural zoning designations by special exception. Mr. Hartleys proposal, if adopted at a later date, would restrict sand mining to industrial zones only. The proposed ordinance states that continuing to permit sand mining on agricultur al lands, which make up more than half of the countys total acreage excluding national for est land, is not in compliance with the countys comprehen sive, long-range planning mission. The document further calls for an absolute prohibition against sand mining on any property with an Agricultural (AG) zoning designation and concludes that such a policy would be in the best interest of Baker County and its citizens. The following language, under Amendment of the Baker County Land Develop ment Regulations, contains the legislative in tent: Sand mining on parcels of real property with Agricultural (AG) zoning designations shall not be permitted nor shall special exceptions be granted for the purpose of conducting sand mining on parcels of real property with Agricultural zoning designations. The (Zoning) Board of Adjustment, the Local Planning Authority and the Planning Director shall not have the authority to consider or take action upon requests or applications for special exception applications made for the purpose of conducting sand mining on parcels of real property with Agricultural (AG) zoning designations.

Jahna JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgThe former Food Lion grocery store space in the Cornerstone Shopping Center in Macclenny may soon be occupied by the farm and ranch products retailer Tractor Supply Co. The property owner, Yormaco-Cornerstone, LLC, has petitioned the City of Macclenny to rezone the property to accommodate the new store. Renovation plans were submitted previously. The Macclenny City Commission will consider on September 11 rezoning about 8.6 acres at the northwest corner of Willis Hodges Road and South 6th Street from Com mercial General to Planned Unit Development, or PUD. property owner, or this case, its agent Weaver Realty Group of Jacksonville. Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough said PUD zoning is being sought because the outside storage areas that Tractor Supply Co. has planned for the site are not permitted in districts zoned Commercial General. The company will not occupy all of the vacant space left when Food Lion closed its doors seven months ago after announcing the move in mid-January. The new store would use 25,118 square feet, or about 62 percent of the available space, the companys plans show. The plans, from Oxford Architecture in Nashville, TN, also call for a number of display areas to showcase Tractor Supply Co. products. An outdoor area measuring about 15,000 square feet and cordoned off with a 2.5-foot masonry wall and ornamental fencing is proposed in the parking lot close to the highway alongside a smaller, 3000-square-foot display area for trailers and equipment. In addition, some 623 square feet on the sidewalk in front of the store will be set aside for displays. The detached display areas are expected to reduce parking by 40-50 spaces. Deliveries would be made to the rear of the store from Willis Hodges Road. The plans also show at pylon sign next to the 3000-square-foot display area. Tractor Supply Co. is a publicly traded company founded in 1938. Its website bills the company as the largest retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States with 1130 stores in 45 states and headquartered in Brentwood, TN Other area locations include Orange Park, Jacksonville, Starke and Lake City.

The sentencing of David Hill, 38, had been postponed post-trial after his public defense counsel George Nelson tion for a new trial based on alleged statements made by the victim Judge Phyllis Rosier denied the motion. Mr. Hill, who has no criminal past, was arrested in March, 2011 after he failed a voice analysis test. He denied to sheriffs investigators allegations made by the victim, then a BCHS student, that he raped her on a regular basis for a decade. the trial, recounted how Mr. Hill physically abused her, threatened her if she revealed anything about their relation ship and abused her pets over the years before her friends coaxed her into telling a school The court threw out a single count of lewd or lascivious battery, and the jury took a half hour following the day and a half trial before returning guilty verdicts on four counts of en gaging in sexual activity with a child less than 12 years old and another charge of tampering with the victim-witness. On the last count, the state presented evidence that Mr. Hill attempted via phone to get the victim to back off the allegations. The defendant, a mainte nance man at a local motel, did not testify in his defense. In another case that day that resulted in a prison sentence, Melvin (Rusty) Mann, 30, of Sanderson was given a threeyear sentence after pleading to multiple counts including manufacturing methamphetamine.

The withdrawal request came nearly an hour before the commission was scheduled to begin a public hearing on the mining proposals. Some speculated that the companies made the move because they sensed that the outcome might not be to their liking. Public opposition to the mining plans has become increasingly hostile, with many calling for the county to scuttle the proposals immediately. Commissioner Hartley had announced his opposition to the mining plans months ago and on September 3 he said he felt it was time to make his move. I thought this might be some thing we might want to look at more closely, he said, adding that sand mining would be detrimental to the environment and the public welfare, would compromise public safety by adding hundreds of dump trucks to nar row county roads every day and the county. I just cant see that it would be good, he said. By removing the special exception for mining companies in agricultural areas, the companies would have to seek a rezoning. Mr. Hartley said thats the way it should be because getting large tracts of land rezoned is not as easy as simply applying for a special zoning exception. Ed Preston, the countys planning and zoning director, said re moving the special exception provision for the mining companies could make their objective much The Land Development Regulations allow mining to take place in the Industrial Zoning category, Mr. Preston said. If they (Old Castle and Jahna Inc.) wanted to come back and do some sand mining they would have to rezone the property to industrial. It doesnt preclude them altogether from coming back.JESSICA PREVATT | S TAFF I would love to see a movie theater or bowling alley in Baker County as much as the next person. But Im tired of hearing speculation that the reason we dont have either is because the county isnt trying to attract them or we dont sell beer on Sunday. Even though I dont have a degree in business administra tion or economics, I know neither of those are valid reasons. As nice as those venues would be, we dont have the population to support them. Bradford County has a comparable population and do you know why they have a theater? Because someone opened one in downtown Starke in 1941, remodeled and updated it in 1984. Its only got two screens and is great for locals looking for a good family movie thats not a super new release. If someone wanted to build something similar in Baker County, they are looking at an enormous investment. Theyd have to purchase property, either build or remodel, and buy all the equipment necessary, just for starters. In this economy, its just not feasible. It would be great for my family and I, since we rarely make it to the movies anyway, but most young people are more interested in new releases and small theaters like that wouldnt have them when the big ones do. Plus, when you factor in having to compete with I-Max and 3-D, costs will skyrocket. A bowling alley has the same set of problems. A lot of initial investment that most banks arent willing to loan. As far as the restaurants ... I love Olive Garden. Its my all-time favorite place to eat. I also enjoy a meal at a good sushi restaurant or steak house. The fact we dont have those restaurants is more a matter of market size, not the fact we dont allow alcohol sales. How many have opened and closed their doors in Baker County in here cant afford to eat out in sit-down restaurants frequently and they dont. And on occasions they do, Jacksonville and Lake City are short drives. The established restaurants are the only ones that do well and even they are struggling. Maybe when I have grandchildren the economy will have bounced back from this horrid slump and Baker County will have a few chain restaurants, maybe a bowling alley. Dont blame the local politicians for socio-economic factors. Baker County is mostly a rural market and thats what I love about it. We will grow, slowly but surely, we just have to learn patience along the way. Jessica Prevatt is a married mother of two boys and the advertising/production director at The Baker County Press.

Central Elementary Center in Sanderson has also been the place for our crime watch meetings sponsored by the sheriffs department, the Community Action Outreach meetings, Monday night exercise class and several health-related classes sponsored by our local health department. In anticipation of our sixth anniversary, we closed down to do some repairs to the centers kitchen and dining room and to make some additions such as a new TV, computers, new doors and windows. Some time Thursday, August 30 or the next day, someone broke out our brand new windows, entered the center, TV and walked out of our front door. Reportedly, no one saw anything. The thieves did not leave who you are. He knows your lookout, your driver, and the people who cover and lie for you, the buyer and the ones who know but refuse to help. You are all equally guilty. We dont believe these individuals represent the major ity of our community, however there is a small group of individuals in our neighborhood who steal, possess and sell drugs and live as if they are not accountable to anyone. Their presence attracts others just like them. All that evil needs to prosper is for good people to do nothing. When good people do nothing the wicked prosper. We are asking for two things. First, if you have any information about who burglarized the center and stole our TV, please let us know. Second, alert your neighbors and the sheriffs ofing on around you. Lets not make our community a comfortable place for criminals. Lets do something and take a stand for what is right. If you know a criminal, tell on them! Pastor Videll and Marva Williams SandersonIts time to inform on lawless among usAs you probably know, I have tossed my hat into the ring for the presidency. I realize that I might look the longshot, but I think I have a good chance. After watching the Republican National Convention last week, I feel that the door has been opened a crack wider and is only waiting for me to kick it in. My Vote Bob: It Could be Worse, signs, bumper stickers and buttons are at the printer and I am fueling up my Tacoma pickup aka The Bandwagon and inviting the electorate to jump on board for the drive to the White House. I watched the Republican Convention and I was not impressed. It did convince me of one thing though. I need to have my own political convention. I think I can have one that is a lot more fun and informative. First of all I have to pick a good location. The Republicans picked Tampa, which is okay; I like Tampa pretty well. The Democrats chose Charlotte, an awful choice. There is nothing remotely fun about the Queen City of the South, or the entire state of North Carolina for that matter. Maybe thats a little harsh. I like Maggie Valley and Cherokee, but theyre too small for a political convention. Hmmm. So where do I want to have my convention? The city doesnt matter all that much so long as the venue is good. So, I need a good venue. Hooters of course. Im bound to have a big turnout for my political convention. What drunken conventioneer doesnt love a Hooters? Now I need speakers. Ann Romney did a pretty good job trying to make her husband seem like anything but the life-sized cardboard cutout that he is. She seemed a nice enough lady but my wife Kelley could have blown her off the podium. Now I just have to convince Kelley to endorse me. That could be a challenge. The highlight of the convention was, of course, Clint Eastwood holding a 20-minute conversation with an empty chair. Lots of people were surprised and entertained by this speech, but not me. I realized right off that he was supposed to be having a conversation with an imaginary Barack Obama. Clever? Naw. I can walk down Bay Street in Jacksonville at any hour of the day or night and see old guys having con versations with empty benches. Whats the big deal? Ill get one of those guys off the street, put him in a suit and give him an open mic for 20 minutes and its bound to be just as effective as Clint. So long as you dont pay attention to the part of the speech where he claims that the Emperor Zod and his Martian armies are going to land and take over the world dressed as giant hamburgers. Granted that might sound a little crazy, but then the Republicans let Congressman He told CNNs Wolf Blitzer that another four years of Barack Obama and the country would come apart at the seams and be an unrecognizable Socialist state. Blitzer actually said, Are you kidding me? And he wasnt. So whatever I say or any of my speakers say, were going to sound reasonable next to Rand Paul and Paul Ryan. Or is that Rand Paul Ryan? They look alike. They sound alike. They may actually be the same person. Has anyone ever seen them together? Just saying. Now I need a campaign platform. The economy is no good. Thats already taken by the Republicans and Democrats. Not that they have any bright ideas about it. They claim they are going to create millions of new jobs, but unless they are going to start their own company, White House, Inc., and hire all the unemployed, I dont know how thats going to work. Of course, it worked for FDR. I could talk foreign policy. Everybody seems to be ignoring that. The president doesnt talk about it unless pressed and Gov. Romney is certainly mum on the subject. Did you notice that throughout his acceptance speech, Gov. Romney never mentioned the A-word? The would-be commander in chief did not mention Afghanistan once. Not once did he men tion the war that our country is currently involved in. All joking aside, I was a little scandalized by that. I could describe my vision for the future. The America I envision. My hope for our future and my childrens future. Nah. If you want to get elected nowadays you never talk about serious stuff like that. Instead you call your opponents names in a way that would get you put in deten tion if you were a middle schooler. Which is exactly what both parties remind me of middle schoolers calling each other names. Maybe I dont need a party platform when Ive got the Hooters girls at my convention. They certainly beat funny hats and horns. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD Bowling alley, theater not market-feasibleSuperintendent: reduction in teacher aides hours is optional An article in last weeks Press reported, in error, that the school board approved on August 20 a 2.5-hour re duction in the hours for new teacher aides hired this year forward. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson explained this week that the board did not approve a reduction in hours for all new aides. Rather, she said, a special education teacher with an existing aide needed an additional aide to work 5 hours per day. And instead of hiring another aide to work a 7.5hour day or a 4-hour day, the existing salary schedule options before the change, the school district created a new teacher aide salary schedule for aides to work 5 hours a day, the superintendent said. Ms. Raulerson further explained that new teacher aides may be put on the reduced salary schedule in the future, but it will be done on a case-by-case basis when needed. She stood by her previous statement that the move would save the district money. The superintendent was unsure, however, how many new aides were hired at the reduced salary sched ule.MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF During the Baker County Commissions second budget workshop in eight days, the board heard from Property Appraiser Tim Sweat and Sheriff Joey Dobson, the only two con meet the commissions request to trim their proposed budgets by 10 percent. Both Mr. Sweat and Sheriff Dobson told commissioners on September 4 they could make no additional cuts in their budgets beyond the ones they had already made. Mr. Sweat cut his budget by 3.54 percent, dropping it from $514,109 to $495,902, and the sheriff pared his budget from $3.5 million to $3.2 million, nearly 8.5 percent. Mr. Sweat said he had con sistently cut budgets in previous years at the countys request, in cluding a cumulative 9.85 percent reduction over the last three years, which he said is the main reason I cant cut 10 percent this year. I feel like Ive been doing what the board is currently ask ing everybody else to do, he said. which the property appraisers ofoperating expense for his department is $13,000 less than the day Sheriff Dobson also said he had tried, but could not cut his budget any further, describing it as bare bones. Any further cuts, he said, could only be achieved by cutting deputies, reducing patrols and increasing response times. Commissioners said they were accepted the budget proposals. Commissioners also rejected the idea of trying to save money by putting employees on furlough, days off with no pay. One day of furlough would only save about $10,400, which the board felt wasnt enough to help the county out of the economic jam its in, and Chairman Gordon Crews said the maximum num ber of furlough days he would even consider would be four per year. To only save about $41,000 would not be worth taking it out on employees, who havent had a pay raise in three years, Commissioner Crews said. County Manager C.J. Thompson cut nearly $400,000 from his proposed $24.6 million bud get last week, which left a $1.6 remains the same this week and there appears to be no other way to increase revenue or cut costs to narrow the gap. Commissioners said it looks like theyll have to go to the counthe deficit, following two deep plunges into the well over the ed last week the rainy day fund holds about $7.8 million. While that might not satisfy some people, Commissioner Crews said the county has made county government, noting that there have been no fee increases, no tax increases and a steady de crease in costs over the past four years. That is progress, he said. I think the board has done what it can do and well continue to move in that direction. 2012-13 budget will begin at 6 pm on September 17.M easure requires re-zoning for mining Send us letters and make sure they are SIGNED with a phone number.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, September 6, 2012 Page 5 T B C P ursday, September 6, 2012 MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF The future of Heritage Park and Macclennys garbage pickup service are two major issues in the municipal governments proposed $4.4 million operating budget for 2012-13. Because the spending plan contains a substantial funding in missioners say they want the park to become more self-supporting through fees for activities and events, such as reunions, recep tions and group tours. Commissioner Vernon Ben nett said the facility, a village ry of Baker County in 22 separate museum buildings, is an attractive asset for the city. But he ques tioned the 73 percent increase in operating expenses during the boards second budget workshop on the evening of August 28. Its costing us too much money, he said. I know its a nice place and I love it, but I dont know how much its used. We cant keep increasing it (expense) every year. Unless fees can be generated at the park to offset the operating costs to the taxpayer, Mr. Bennett suggested the city might have to stop funding it. People dont use it that much to pay that much money for it, he said. Were going to have to get some income there or quit. The park, the brainchild of Baker County native LaViece Smallwood Moser, who remains an unpaid executive director, was created 12 years ago on 3.5 acres off Lowder Street. The land is overseen by the Baker County Development Commission and leased to the city for $1 a year. City Manager Gerald Dopson said the main reason for the budget increase was his decision to turn a part-time park director position into a full-time job for Kelly Lannigan, who was hired this year to run the facility and attract visitors. Mayor Gary Dopson supported his brothers decision and said the park needs a full-time manager to promote it and try to book three or four events a year there. However, he said a fee schedule will have to be developed to help generate additional revenue for the park. Roger Yarborough, assistant city manager, said Ms. Lannigan has already created an impressive web site to help spread the word about Heritage Park and attract some interest. Commissioner Phil Rhoden said time will tell whether the city can continue its relationship with the park. But he remained optimistic and suggested more volunteers be rounded up to help extend the parks hours in the evening and weekends. I dont think were at the point yet to pull the plug, Mr. Rhoden said. But I want to see how much fees can be generated in the next year to offset costs. Changes also are in the future for the citys sanitation department. Bids will be received on September 7 from contractors seeking to take over the citys garbage pickup service and commissioners likely will vote on the issue at the next board meeting at 6 pm on September 11. The proposed $4,414,605 budget contains $473,559 more spending than last years budget, a 12 percent increase, mainly due to a $300,000 allocation for a new garbage truck equipped with a mechanical arm that picks up curb side containers without the need for a second employee on the truck. The appropriation also includes money to buy garbage containers for customers. If the city goes forward with its plan to hire a private contractor with the same type of equipment, the $300,000 could be used for other public works projects, the city manager said. If a contract is awarded, ofrate increase for residents but the pickup schedule probably would be reduced from twice a week to once because the new contain ers will be much larger than the maximum 30-gallon size cans allowed now. Even with larger containers that roll easily on wheels, City Manager Dopson said going to once-weekly collections is probably going to be the biggest concern of residents. One of the most significant with a robotic arm to lift the gar bage cans will be the elimination of back injury risks and subsequent workers compensation claims. Theres not going to be any manual lifting, the city manager said. The new budget is based on keeping the property tax rate the ery $1,000 of assessed valuation. month and the new budget will become effective on October 1. In other business during the August 28 meeting, commissioners awarded six bids totaling $237,385 to contractors for the rehabilitation of three substandard houses and total reconstruction of three others under the citys federally funded Community Development Block Grant program designed to improve low-income housing. Spencer Nabors, the citys housing rehabilitation consultant, said 18 contractors originally were approved to bid on the projects but only four bid on the homes targeted for rehabilitation and eight bid on those scheduled for demolition and reconstruction. I was very shocked, he said. pation. Houses being rehabilitated will be completed in about 45 days while those undergoing complete reconstruction will take bors said. He said the target date for completion is mid-December. Itll be a merry Christmas for them (homeowners), Mayor Dopson said. All the houses will be built to last with metal roofs and a masonry product applied to the ex terior walls as siding. The properties are on East McIver Street, South Boulevard, Eloise Street, West Railroad Avenue, Sycamore Drive and South Second Street.JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR email@example.comThe Baker County Health Department is now home to a larger remodeled dental clinic, the most recent phase of the public agencys 20-year expansion plan. Clinic doctors and staff were joined by health department administrators and Chamber of Commerce members to celebrate completion of the $1.5 million project the afternoon of August 23. The dental program, which largely serves the countys lowincome population, has been in high demand and running a three-month appointment backlog. Patients with emergencies are seen immediately, but the health departments top administrator, Kerry Dunlavey, said the addition of more dental rooms and a new dentist who begin September 1 should help reduce the backlog. She hopes to eventually limit the waiting period to 7-10 business days. The clinic expansion added 2400 square feet to the existing facility and doubled the number of patient rooms from four to eight. Only two of the new rooms ment, namely dental chairs. Ms. Dunlavey said two additional chairs were on the way, however. According to health departlogged 11,964 visits from 5278 patients, who on average are seen 2.5 times each year, in 2011. The program provided nearly 37,000 services that year as well. Most of those services, local and families on Medicaid or to patients with no private insurance who pay for services based on sliding income scale. Medicaid is a health insurance program funded by the state and federal governments for low-in come families. Ms. Dunlavey said some 55 percent of the area children receive free or reduced lunch at school and 20 percent live below the poverty level, which is about $23,000 for a family of four. Those are the children we treat, she said. Maintaining good oral health is particularly important for young people because problems that go untreated can become more severe later in life. Poor oral health can lead to tooth decay and painful cavities that keep children out of school or distract them in the classroom. Such ailments, if unaddressed, can mean tooth loss that in turn may hurt a childs self esteem or stunt their social development. They can have a hard time keeping on track with their education and keeping on track socially with their peers, said Ms. Dunlavey. Dental care is vital to the total care of every child. Beyond adding more capacity to the dental clinic, the proj ect included enlarging the clinic lobby and painting the walls with swamp-theme murals. It also added more parking spaces and parking lot lighting, a new electronic sign out front and a larger retention pond. alligators and other swamp critgienist Whitney Taylor. She did a wonderful job, Ms. Dunalevy said prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony in the lobby with juice, snacks and desserts. The health department director also thanked commissioners from the City of Macclenny and Baker County for assistance in making the project a reality. The city donated property for the expanded retention pond and county road department workers were dispatched to dig the new Funding for the million-dollar-plus project came from the health department itself, which had built up a surplus during the last decade for capital projects in the future. Ms. Dunlavey said early this year that the surplus funds were transferred in March 2011 from the departments general fund to a capital improvements fund to protect the money from being swept away by state legislators. Though unfunded at this point, the health departments 20-year expansion plan also includes a 3600-square-foot conference room addition and two more clinics measuring about 9500 square feet apiece. The dental clinic expansion generated some controversy in the summer of 2011, when County Commissioner Michael Crews voted against pledging county support for the plan. He said at the time that the health departments dental program represented unfair competition for private dentists in the area because the publicly-funded clinic accepts patients with private insurance plans. The commission ended up voting 4-1 in favor of the expan sion plan, however. Woodlawn Kennels Quality Professional Care ....... . . . . . . ..................

Gavan Foster returned home from the intensive care unit at Shands Jacksonville three days later, said his father Robert Foster. He said his son returned to school later in the week but was in too much pain to stay the full day. The youth, a student at Keller Intermediate School, was bitten by a water moccasin, also known as a cottonmouth, on the bottom of his ankle. The snake was later killed. Adult water moccasins are a dark brown-colored, heavy-bodied species that can grow up to 4 feet in length. Younger moccasins are lighter in color. They are among the six venomous snake species native to Florida. The state is home to 44 snake species in all, however. A lot of people will see a snake, freak out and kill it, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Karen Parker. But it may be a good snake to have around, like the Indigo, which will eat poisonous snakes. The state wildlife agency recommends backing away from snakes should you come upon them. Just stand back observe it, reads the FWCs Living with Snakes web page. Snakes dont purposefully position themselves to frighten people. Theyd much rather avoid encounters and usuLegend has it that snakes are more active during the dogs days of summer in late July and August. Ms. Parker said that may be true because, like all cold-blooded reptiles, snakes regulate their body temperature by sunning themselves or taking cover in shaded spaces. In the winter, snakes rarely come out in the open, she said. What we suggest to reduce the likelihood of encountering snakes is to remove any snake hiding material; brush, lumber or debris piles that they can get into, said Ms. Parker. Those places also breed rodents, which is what snakes eat. In most cases, if you get rid of the food source, you can get rid of the critter. Scattered bird feed can also attract rodents that in turn draw snakes.

Bone Senior Pastor JOEL ADDINGTON | N EWS E DITOR email@example.comThree months from now, work should be underway by the Florida Department of Transportation to reopen two critical bridges damaged by Tropical Storm Debby. County Manager C.J. Thompson said this week the department is funding both projects saving the county more than a million dollars. Both bridges are going to be replaced and the county does not have to come up with an estimated $1.2 million in local match, he said. The Cedar Creek Bridge on CR 127 N., which lost a roughly 100-foot section during the tropical storm in late June, will be replaced. Construction is expected to start within 90 days. The state is solicitA similar project is planned for the Greens Creek Bridge on CR 229 S., which suffered major erosion around wood pilings that support the structure. Its anticipated the state will erect a temporary bridge over Greens Creek within the next 90 days with construction on a permanent re placement bridge will follow shortly thereafter. FDOT is advertising for bids to complete both tasks, also from a trio of companies. No temporary bridge is being placed [on CR 127 N.] due to right of way issues, Mr. Thompson said. Acquiring the additional right of way would cause substantial delays in the overall project. bridge was not available as of press time. A Macclenny man who earlier was named for causing a disturbance at Macs Liquors downtown early on September 1 was arrested when a county deputy responded to the same complaint a half hour later. Roy Prevatt, 39, had left the premises when Deputy Matt Yarplaint about 12:50 am, but was there arguing with manager William Cooler in the drive-thru area when he responded a second time around 1:15. Mr. Prevatt was charged with disorderly intoxication after he told both the manager and dep uty they had no authority to remove him from the property. Earlier, Mr. Cooler said the suspect was harassing customers and refused to leave. In another incident about the same time, a Macclenny man was arrested in the west city for possession of alcohol underage. Deputy Daryl Mobley said he stopped a 2006 Chevrolet pickup for lack of a tail light as it headed west on US 90 about 12:40 am. Driver Dustin Donnelly, 20, had an opened beer and six unopened ones in the vehicle. Mr. Donnelly twice last October for the same offense after stop ping his vehicle. Thousands of dollars in per sonal property were reported taken in a rash of home burglaries in the north Sanderson area over the past week. The most costly in terms of loss occurred at the home of Donald Hoilman Jr. and Amanda Bryant on CR 122 during daylight hours on August 28. Mr. Hoilman told Deputy Daryl Mobley he returned about 7 pm after an absence of about 12 hours and found that a rear door had been pried open. Mens and womens jewelry, computer games, a radial saw, computer and a $3800 mower were among the inventory of missing items given to police. The next afternoon about 3 oclock, Victoria Givens learned that her home on Gaskins Circle was entered via a broken window in the master bathroom. Two televisions, electronic games and a play station, DVD player and costume jewelry were taken. Ms. Givens placed the loss value at $1650, and Deputy Brandon Kiser said he got permission to search the neighboring residence of a potential suspect. It turned up nothing. Sometime between 9 pm on August 27 and noon the next day, a rental mobile home on Tony Givens Rd. occupied by Leeadrriea Farmer and Brandon Coleman was entered through a rear door. The interior was ransacked, said Deputy Pete Quinley, and the couple tallied the property loss at $1209, including a television, window air conditioner, DVD, radio and speakers and a safe. lice when he realized on August 31 that a central air conditioner compressor was stolen from his rental house on CR 23B north of Macclenny.

Nothing inside was reported missing, but she gave Deputy Matt Yarbrough the name of a Macclenny man as a suspect.

The victim told Deputy Yarbrough the man had become enamoured with her in her position as a bartender at a Jacksonville gentlemens club. fronted in an empty residence belonging to Aubrie Hires on North Lowder in Macclenny in the early morning hours of September 1.

Mr. Wilkerson maintained contact with police as the Dodge tailed his 2000 Chevrolet pickup north on 121 to Steel Bridge Rd., then east to Sawtooth Rd., where Mr. Wilkerson said he attempted to turn around to avoid going further east to his residence. There, he said, Mr. Thomas positioned the Dodge to block his exit back onto Steel Bridge, and Donald Boston Jr., 38, of Lawtey exited and was struck by a front fender and mirror as the pickup drove forward and hit the Dodge that was backing up into its path. Mr. Wilkerson was still on the phone with county jail as both vehicles sped west on Steel Bridge back toward 121, and said the Dodge once rear-ended his truck before he turned back south where he met Deputy Matt Yarbrough near Paul Thrift Dr. Mr. Wilkerson said the chase began after a confrontation at the Country Club Lounge, where he claimed Mr. Boston was attempting to get him into a Melissa, 35, also of Lawtey. She was a passenger in the Dodge during the chase, said Deputy Yarbrough, but was not charged. Deputy Ben Anderson made contact with the Dodges occupants at the Exxon Station near the lounge shortly after, and Mr. Thomas gave a con he drove out to Steel Bridge that morning, or how the collision occurred.

Page13SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 Page12SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 BOB GER ARDRight off the bat lets get this out of the way. Though the previews for The Campaign look hilarious, dont be tempted to take the kids to see the new Will Ferrell, Zack Galifianakis film. It is rated R for good reason. Beyond that disclaimer it has some good things going for it, and some not so good. The easiest way to describe The Campaign is to say it is a Will Ferrell movie. If you are a fan of Mr. Ferrells movies or if you avoid them like the plague youll know exactly what I mean when I say that. His films like Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Old School are funny, sometimes very funny, and out of control. In a Will Ferrell movie, its as if a bunch of fraternity brothers got together and said, Lets make a movie. They put in every ridiculous gag they can think of without anyone to say, Guys, this isnt really very funny. Lets trim this one out. So what you get is excess instead of hilarious from start to finish. That is my knock on The Cam paign There is a lot that should have landed on the cutting room floor. The Campaign is a parody of a North Carolina congressional campaign and sadly to say, there is a lot that strikes home. Ferrell plays long term congressman, Cam Brady who is up for reelection. He is rarely ever challenged because he is a lock to get reelected. Early on it is clear that he doesnt do much in Congress. He hardly ever votes and has no coherent stance on any issue. He tells his aides that his campaign is about Jesus, Freedom and America and when asked a tough question he injects any or all of the above without ever answering the question. The opposition decides to run Marty Huggins, a small town tour guide whose father (Rip Torn) was a big political wheelerdealer. Galifianakis Huggins is slightly effeminate, has a pudgy wife and two pudgy children and is a nice man. He is shocked that he has been asked to run for anything and is terrified of his campaign manager Tim Wattley (Dylan McDermott). McDermott comes across like a ninja and steals every scene he is in. Wattley reshapes Huggins life and even replaces his dogs, a pair of Pugs with Labs because they test better with the public. Once Huggins accepts his partys nomination he has sold his soul to the devil. Brady and Huggins trade barbs and dig up all the dirt they can find. Brady profiles Huggins at a meet and greet and shows pictures of him working out at Curves. Huggins challenges Brady to say the Lords Prayer to prove his faith. What follows is a ridiculous rehash of the sweet baby Jesus sequence from Talladega Nights. After each candidate has fired a shot across the others bow, the mud-slinging begins full tilt. There is no holding back and though funny, a firmer hand on the throttle would have been more useful to the movie. Director Jay Roach was a disappointment. He directed two outstanding political films, Game Change a scathing portrait of Sarah Palin starring Julianne Moore and Recount a fabulous look at the 2000 election fiasco in Florida with Kevin Spacey. In The Campaign it looks as if he was afraid to say no to Ferrell. Ferrell is Ferrell, thats all that can be said. His character is a re hash of every other character hes ever played. Galifianakis is a surprise and was the real star of this movie. The Hangover star was funny, sweet and unintimidated in scenes with Ferrell. He as a long career ahead of him. There are some excellent supporting roles. John Lithgow and Dan Ackroyd do a funny Trading Places turn as the Mooch brothto turn Huggins into a winner. Katherine LaNasa and Sarah Baker are wonderful as the candidates wives. One is a cruel, manipulating, harpy and the other a sweet, out of her league hometown girl. McDermott and his counterpart Jason Sudeikis are excellent. But they are lost in an over the top film. I laughed a lot at some scenes but overall came away feeling sad about this movie. I was sad it was so mediocre. I was also sad because some of the arrows that they fired at political campaigns hit the mark. After watching campaign commercial after commercial leading up to the recent primaries, what I saw on The Campaign wasnt far from the truth. I give The Campaign 2 out of 4 stars. Reluctantly.

BOB GER ARD | SPORTS When you watch a game like Fridays match-up between the Wildcats and 6A power Columbia High its easy to wonder what if? What if the Cats had scored on their opening drive? What if some of the dropped passes had been caught? What if they could have stopped Tiger quarterback Jayce Barber from completing his passes? Would the outcome have been different? Questions like that are a fools errand, because they didnt happen. What did happen was the Tigers completely dominated the Wildcats on the way to a 50-0 victory and one of the worst defeats in the history of Wildcat football. that counted, and a comprehensive defeat may entice players to come back and go at it harder. Thats what Coach Ryan Sulkowski and his staff and team expect, and what followers of Wildcat football expect. As a player, Fridays game was one to put in a back pocket and remember when adversity strikes in other games. You pull it out and reshocked. You tell yourself this is not going to happen again. Thats what good teams do. And the Wildcats are a good team. There are positives to take from Fridays game, though not a lot of them. The Wildcats hit hard, they chased, they fought for yardage and kept their heads up. Those are qualities that will serve them the rest of the season. The Cats started strong. Falon Lee took the opening kickoff and cut and slashed 28 yards to the 35. On three successive plays he drove into Tiger territory to the CHS 43. But at that point the drive broke down. The Wildcats punted and pinned the Tigers at the 3-yard line. But a Top 5 team doesnt stay pinned for long. The Tigers embarked The Wildcats knew they would be up against one of the best running games in the state. So they designed their game plan around stopping the run. If they were going to beat us, their quarterback was going to have to throw the ball and complete some passes, said Coach Ryan Sulkowski. And thats exactly what quarterback Jayce Barber did. The Wildcats did a pretty good job of controlling Braxton Stockton and Ronald Timmons over the course of the night, but that left single coverage on Ronnie Underwood, J.C. Bradley, Trey Marshall and Darren Burch. Barber hit Underwood with a 17-yard pass completion on third down, found Barber on a 23-yard strike and connected with Burch in the end zone for the score. Just like that, BCHS was down by seven. The Wildcats werent deterred, however, and came back with a couple of effective runs from senior quarterback Corey Lawler to the 30yard line. Lawler hit Mike Boone at the 48 and it looked as if things might swing their way. But two miscues, a holding call and a delay of game, stopped the drive cold. After a punt, Barber connected with Marshall on a 42-yard touchdown pass to give CHS a 14-0 lead. Two plays later the Tigers had the ball again after Rakeem Battles intercepted Lawler. This time the Tigers stayed on the ground and marched 71 yards for the score. The rout was on. The match-up of All Americans CeCe Jefferson and Laremy Tunsill was a good one. Jefferson played a whale of a game at fullback and blocked an extra point. But it was overshadowed by the mounting score. CHS led 34-0 at the half. It would have been easy at that point for a team with lesser character to lie down, but that is not in the Wildcat DNA and they continued to play hard. In fact, though they didnt score, they played better in the The stats werent pretty. The Wildcats had 100 yards in total offense an interception. Timmons led Columbia with 13 carries for 130 yards. The Cats have an open date Friday and will host Duval Charter on September 14. Duval Charter lost 67-0 to Episcopal last week.

BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The Lady Wildcat volleyball team got off to a rocky start last week as it lost 1-3 in the home opener to the Oakleaf Knights on August 28. The Knights took before BCHS settled down and won the second 25-20. The third game was a back and forth affair with the Knights winning 26-24. They took the match winner 25-21. The match was close from start a total of 21 service errors in a tight match. If we could just cut that down by half we would be okay. Callie Wheeler led the offense with eight kills. Wheeler and Kayla Holland had nine defensive digs each. Candace Clack dominated the total blocks. tember 4. See next weeks edition for a recap.BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The Wildcats took it on the chin on Friday night in Lake City, losing 50-0 to a very talented Columbia High Tigers. Coach Ryan Sulkowski and his staff have an open date before Duval Charter comes in on September 14. Heres how Sulkowski looked at Fridays game. What surprised you the most about Fridays game? The speed of Columbia. We knew they were strong and physical, but they covered a lot of ground quickly. After the CHS game are you thankful or regretting that there is an open date before Duval Charter? I truly believe the open date is a positive thing for us right now. We needed to step away from football for a few days and refocus our energy. It also will give us a chance to continue to evaluate a few positions that are still unsettled without the rushed feeling of having to play on Friday night. Healing some of the bumps and bruises is also a priority this week, so I am glad we have some time to do that! In the early going the Wildcats were moving the ball well and seemed to be holding even in the run of play. What changed that allowed CHS to take over the game? With a young, inexperienced team you cannot give a very good and veteran football team like Columbia an inch, because they will take a mile. We came into the game wanting to control the clock and slow play down with our running game. A few times we got behind the chains with penalties and that really just forced us out of our game plan. We knew we had to keep it close in order to continue on track with our offensive game plan and that just didnt happen. Typically there is no mystery to what a team is doing on 3rd down and 15 (passing), but without penalties you are looking at 3rd down and 5 and it keeps the defense guessing on whether you are going to run or pass. When we got in long yardage situations like the example I just provided, it makes it tougher on the offense because the defense just gets to tee-off on you. Defensively we came in wanting to force them to throw the ball since they are a power running team. Hats off to them because they were able to make plays in the passing game, but I felt we defended the run pretty well with the exception of a few missed tackles. When you suffer that lopsided a score, what is the biggest challenge going into the next game? The biggest challenge is not hitting the panic button. The fact is we played a top 5 state-ranked team in a higher classification with a very young group of players. The initial thought going through the mind of our coaching staff was, Oh, we have so not true. We lost to a very good football team and we will continue to stay the course. The kids understand that and know we have to improve every week re gardless. In my mind we will not face a more well-rounded team this season. Are there any positives that you can take away from Friday nights game? Of course, I think that unless you are just a negative person by nature, you can always in our young boys. I do not think people understand the impact of graduating 17 seniors on a 5A program such as us. There were times on Friday night that defensively we had no seniors on the two. A lot of the younger guys could have packed it in, but they didnt. Columbias starters even when the game was out of reach. This is going to be a mentally and physically tough group of guys as a result of playing ranked teams like Columbia. The thing out the true character of your players, coaches, fans and com munity. I can honestly say that I have no concerns about the character of the people involved with this team because they showed me a lot on Friday. I cannot say the same about a few of our followers on Friday. Who played up to or above potential on Friday? I was really encouraged by a guy like Falon and even late in the game when he began cramping up, he was quick to get back in and battle more. We can go into battle on Friday nights with guys like him. We had other guys who did very well, but Falon just sticks out in my mind for his toughness the other night.Coach: PHOTO BY JUD JOHNSON Candace Clack (right) blocks the spike.Opening loss to KnightsWhile the Wildcats were getting spanked by Columbia High on Friday, some of their oppoouting.
