COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comWhen word spread late last month that a county com missioner was angling to put another regulatory hurdle in the way of two proposed sand mines being planned by outof-county companies, it caused a number of local landowners to grow concerned about their own assets. A meeting among an estimated 15 owners of large tracts of timberland, including Rayonier, DuPont, the Knabbs, the Davises, the Mobleys and others was convened August 30 at the Chamber of Commerce in Macclenny to discuss the measure, which they believed at the time Commissioner Mark days later. Attendee John Kennedy said the group was mainly concerned that the ordinance to be proposed which wouldve required owners of parcels zoned agriculture to rezone their properties to industrial to carry out sand mining may hinder their ability to sell their holdings, most of which are zoned agriculture today. Mr. Kennedy, a retired banker, has numerous timber and land holdings in Baker County. They were also worried the legislation was primed for quick passage with little discussion. Fellow attendees asked that Mr. Kennedy speak for the group at last weeks com mission meeting held the evening of September 4, should that matter come up. But as it turned out, he didnt have to. What I was prepared to ask about, had they brought it up, is what are you trying to accomplish? How is this not a further restriction on a landowners rights? Mr. Kennedy said this week. We believe its very important because of the potential impact it has on any landowner nated agriculture. Its a property rights issue. As reported in last weeks edition of The Press, Mr. Hartley was prepared to request the commission schedule a public hearing to discuss the ordinance, which would have Four days after the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Northeast Florida Community Action Agency and community partners will honor first responders with a special day of activities focused on disaster preparedness and health. The event on September 15 is one of eight that NFCAA is hosting this month to honor the anniversary through community service. While the event is intended to assist NFCAAs customer base, low-income families, its also free and open to the public. It all starts at 9 am at Macclenny Me morial Park on West Boulevard N. by the duck pond with tours of the sheriffs office mobile communications center, fire safety demonstrations, and free glucose and blood pressure screenings. Information about preparing for di sasters and the health departments stop smoking, first aid and parenting classes will also be available. Participating organizations include the sheriffs office, firefighters and emergency medical services, Fraser Hospital, American Red Cross, Macclenny Nursing and Rehab and the Sanderson Senior Center. The event is scheduled to conclude at 1 pm. Research shows low-income persons often encounter barriers to accessing primary health care services. Routine screenings and tests prevent future emergency care visits a costly burden to the healthcare system, reads a press release from the agency. Low-income families are also significantly less likely to prepare and evacuate during a natural disaster. With hurricane season underway, it is important that all residents prepare for any upcoming storms. For more information about the event, billed as a Day of Service and Remembrance, please call Judy Marek at (904) 588-4072. NFCAAs mission is to collaborate with community partners to empower families in Northeast Florida to achieve self-sufficiency through education, employment and advocacy. NFCAA serves seven counties in Northeast Florida: Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns Counties. Last year, NFCAA helped more than 2,500 Baker County residents improve their lives through its services and programs, the agencys press release said.Veterans Stand Down scheduled for October 27Tony Esterling, the countys veterans affairs officer, announced this week a Stand Down program will take place October 27 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Ag Center, 1025 W. Macclenny Ave. (US 90). He said the event, which he hopes to make an annual affair, will gather various community resources available to help homeless and other veterans in need of assistance. A ceremonial tribute to veterans will take place between 11 am and noon. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website, Stand Downs are part of the departments efforts to get services to homeless veterans. Stand Downs are typically one to three day events providing services to homeless veterans such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and referrals to a variety of other necessary services, such as housing, employment and substance abuse treatment, the site states. Stand Downs are collaborative events, coordinated between local VAs, other government agencies and community agencies who serve the homeless. The sheriffs department charged two men with trafficking drugs from the residence of one of them in a north Sanderson neighborhood. The arrests of Arnold (Ace) Clayton, 40, and Willis Hudson, 36, were based on a series of controlled buys at the formers Clayton Ave. residence dur ing a time period ranging from June 29 through August 27. The two were picked up on August 31 when warrants were served at the address and remain in custody at county jail this week. Because of the amount of drugs and frequency of the offenses, the case will likely be submitted to a federal grand jury. In the meantime, Mr. Clayton is being held without bond for possession of cocaine with intent to sell and sale. For the time being, Mr. Hudson is charged only with a firearms violation. Investigator Mike Hauge, who handles drug cases for the sheriffs department, and Investigator Randy Crews, who is part of a regional drug task force, arranged the buys using two undercover purchasers. Police records indicate the buys took place during daylight hours on ten occa sions involving cash ranging from $30 to $320. Most were for crack cocaine, which the suspects either obtained from the interior of the residence, or in one case from a boot on the porch. In one instance, Mr. Clayton on pre-arrangement sold both crack and powder cocaine, along with marijuana. As per department policy, the transactions were recorded and videotaped, and the report notes that on one occasion August 4 the equipment failed during a $60 purchase of crack. Court records indicate Mr. Clayton has a lengthy felony arrest record and a history of the state dropping charges against him. They include recent counts of aggravated battery and assault and a dozen burglary cases dating back to 1994. One of the alleged sales was made by Jamie Clayton, described as a brother of the suspect. He has not been charged. In a second drug-related case this week, a Glen St. Mary woman was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana after her swerving southbound vehicle was stopped on CR 125 the bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll.

But, after reviewing bids from three companies seeking to take over the service, City Manager Gerald Dopson said the outsourcing plan, which includes larger trash cans and once-weekly pickup, would cut the citys costs. Mr. Dopson said he was surprised that the apparent lowbidder, Advanced Disposal Ser vices in Callahan, may be able to provide solid waste collection for less than the city is currently spending. Im certainly optimistic about the bids, he said. You could say that. ago came back some 30 percent more than the citys costs at that time, Mr. Dopson recalled. Advanced Disposals bid was $5.93 per household per month for once-weekly residential collection. Waste Pro of Lake City bid $8.75 and DisposeAll of Altamonte Springs bid $13 for the same service. In its proposal, Advanced Disposal touted the Delware-based companys strong commitment to recycling and called itself an environmental services company. The proposal also states in the future the company may transition to trucks fueled by compressed natural gas rather than diesel. The firm also counts about 150 municipal clients throughout the Southeast including the City of Jacksonville. Its currently seeking some $700,000 in local and state economic incentives to keep its headquarters in Northeast Florida and expand its workforce here, according to The Florida Times-Union. Acquisitions by Advanced Disposal this summer make it the largest privately held solid waste disposal company in the nation, the newspaper reported. The City of Macclennys bid specifications called for onceweekly pickup for residential customers using rolling and standardized 90-plus-gallon containers with attached lids, commercial pickup at least once per week, and assistance for the disabled and seniors with getting the large bins to the curb. The company selected will also be responsible for paying the city a $15,000 franchise fee to supply services to the citys roughly 2100 residential custom ers and 179 commercial custom ers, plus more than 100 dumpsters. The bids, which arrived September 7, must still be evaluated by city engineer Frank Darabi before Mr. Dopson makes his recommendation to the Maccclenny City Commission. Mr. Dopsons initial analysis, he said, was limited to the companies quotes for residential curb side pickup. A more in-depth review and cost comparison will be made by Mr. Darabi and other city ofManager Dopson said that evaluation will include consid eration of other costs the city will likely continue to incur after privatization like residential yard debris pickup using a grappling truck, manning a receiving cen ter for other trash like old tires city and tipping fees at the New the city intends to pay directly. We still have to evaluate the bids to make sure they didnt miss anything, he said. Then once we do that, Ill make a recommendation. The city manager also said one of the three employees who would be affected by the privatization has been employed by the city for more than two decades him another position. The solid waste companies have agreed verbally to consider hiring the two remaining sanitation workers, who Mr. Dopson said are really good workers. They [the companies] would be willing to do that or at least talk to them, he said. Advanced Disposal also submitted the lowest bid for commercial curbside and dumpster pickup. A commission decision on the privatization plan is not expected until next month. Apathy is the enemy of democracy. It maligns progress, and the irony is, its probably so common in America because we have it so good; because weve come so far as a nation in our relatively short history. I think too often our fellow citizens become disillusioned with the political process, and for good reason. Theres grid lock, partisanship, greed, corruption, cronyism, nepotism the list is long and undistinguished, no doubt. But thats all the more reason to register and cast your vote for whoever you believe will represent you and your values the best. I know thats not always easy. Ive been guilty of staying home on election day like the millions of eligible voters that didnt turn out two years ago. Do these sentiments sound familiar? Im just one person, my vote wont make a difference ; I dont know enough about the candidates to vote for any of them ; or my favorite, I just dont have the time to vote. Well, Im here to tell you, your vote does matter. You may not see it everyday, but government and politics pervade nearly every aspect of our society. The roads we drive, the con ditions under which we work, the businesses we frequent and the health of our families and communities are all affected The people in charge of government most certainly leave their fingerprints on our lives for years, if not decades, after they And if youre like me, you dont have the disposable indidates or educate voters via political advertising to push or pull them in one direction or another. We can, however, exercise our constitutionally protected dates now and in the future. We can also use our voices, which thanks to social media have been multiplied exponentially, to do the same. In the last presidential election in 2008, national voter turnout was 61.6 percent of eligible voters, according to George Mason University. Thats pretty good, but not as high as it could be if we shake off this disconnected view of civil society where one life does not affect all others. Unfortunately, two years later in the 2010 mid-term election, turnout dropped to 41 percent, which means a minority of eligible voters decided the outcome. If you dont feel informed enough to go to the polls this year, with a little effort, you can learn enough about the candidates to cast a ballot. They all have websites, watching the upcoming Presidential debates can help, too. And of course, we at The Press will do our best to keep you up to speed on the local races and issues. In fact, well host in late October our second political forum of this election season. Candidates for sheriff and two county commission seats will be invited to present and answer questions submitted by the public. Send your suggestions by email to reporter@bakercoun259-2400 or drop by 104 S. 5th St. downtown. You can also contact us on Facebook. Its also extremely easy to register and vote. Supervisor of Elections Nita Crawford and her staff will answer any questions you may have and ensure youre squared away to vote, whether its dur ing early voting the week prior to the November 6 general election, by absentee ballot through the mail or at the polls on election day. Theres really no good reason to stay home in 2012, so I beg you, please dont. Regardless of your party or political persuasion, stand up, you believe. If nothing else, a boisterous turnout will send a valuable message to our political leaders: you cannot take us for granted anymore.

FILE PHOTO City of Macclenny sanitation workers collect trash in the south city in April, 2011. Dear Editor:The City of Macclenny and have been negligent in failing to enforce the law on parked trucks in neighborhoods. Many nights I have been awakened at 1 or 2 in the morning to the rumbling noise of a tractor truck when my next door neighbor on Fiesta Court drives his truck into our residential area. Our home shakes when he drives by; the parking area he uses has oil, grease and other chemical stains dried into the pavement. They are still there after heavy rains. Even after I complained, sheriffs patrol ve hicles routinely drive around the tractor at the end of a culde-sac. The city doesnt allow parking of tractor trailers in residential areas, and I have not and will not give my written consent to it as provided by the recent change in the law. After complaining to our homeowners association several times and getting no where, on July 11 of last year I called Joy Chapman, the citys complained about the illegal parking. I complained again later that month, and in August and October, 2011. She advised me several times that a letter was sent to the owner and they would have to get the city attorney involved. In December, I called the sheriffs department and when Sgt. (Phil) Duval arrived, he advised that police dont enforce parking violations in residen tial areas, and never would. That was the job of city code enforcement, he said, and he refused to write an incident re port. All this year, I have kept written records of most of the times the tractor has been parked next door. In August, Ms. Chapman had another deputy come out and talk to the owner. It happened again on September 4 and 6. The purpose of this letter is to have a written record, so the city and sheriffs department cannot used the we did not know excuse. All parties need to know they could be held liable for their lack of action. Rafael Gonzalez MacclennyN egligent on truck parkingSifting through the ongo ing debate over sand mining in Baker County, perhaps this latest twist proposing that companies first be required to seek re-zoning of mining tracts to industrial zones is a bit superfluous. County Commissioner Mark Hartley, an open opponent of mining, is expected to propose a change to the countys zoning and land use plan that takes away the existing provision that mining is allowed in agriculture tracts, but only via special exception. That is what two mining firms, Old Castle Southern and E.R. Jahna, were doing when the furor arose over fears of a depleted water table and in creased truck traffic. The companies withdrew their special exception applications just before what would have been a raucous public hearing August 20. One of them shortly after re-submitted an application and has since withdrawn it a second time, and thats where it stands today. Mr. Hartley asked for the proposed change to be drafted, and it was to have been discussed at the tail end of the September 4 county commission meeting as a post-agenda item. Now he says he wants more time to fine-tune it. Its possible Commissioner Hartley also caught wind of opposition by a group of large landowners, whose spokesman was on hand that evening to raise questions about the proposed change. That, of course, never happened. While not carrying water for large property owners, who naturally want to block any changes to the zoning code that further re strict their latitude dealing with potential buyers, it does seem the current statute serves the public well. It certainly seemed to work during the recent flap over the special exception petitions. A sizeable number of people with no dog in the fight other than fears about water tables and excessive truck traffic were prepared to go the wall to block the mining. The battles probably not over, but theres every reason to believe that if the companies re-submit applications the same voices will rise up in opposition. Changing the law to require a complete re-zoning designa tion to industrial doesnt appear to give opponents any more teeth in their bite. And it could have built-in perils, unnecessary impediments to fu ture growth though theres no clear way of knowing in 2012 what they might be. Whats important is that Baker County adhere to both the letter and spirit of its current comprehensive plan, with its provisions for clustering denser residential, commercial zones and preserving for best use the vast privately owned agriculture acreage. Remember, sand mining isnt about sand mining; its about resources and quality of life, most importantly our wa ter supply and preventing traffic snarls. Requiring a zoning change to industrial rather than via special exception does not appear to be a better method of protecting the public, our resources or insuring the best and highest land use.

Members of the public were largely absent from the budget hearings the evening September and employees, including the president of the teachers union Angela Callahan, the only other audience members were an elderly couple who Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson lauded for regularly attending school board meetings. The couple, Blanche and Thomas Hill, the parents of high school principal Tom Hill, were given coffee mugs and other items as tokens of appreciation by the superintendent. The $52.1-million school district budget for the fiscal year that began July 1 is fed mostly by state and federal revenues, but the district anticipates losing about $400,000 in local property tax levies due in part to falling property values. nance director Marcelle Richardson, the decrease from $6,570,839 in 2011-12 to $6,166,943 in 2012-13 is also the result of a lower required local effort millage set by the state, which makes up almost 70 percent of the total millage, or tax rate. The tax rate is $7.714 per $1000 of taxable property value. A home with a taxable value of $100,000 would pay $771.40 in school district levies under the current rate, which is the highest rate available as this time. The board is at the max it can be without a vote from the public, Mrs. Richardson said, adding that the drop in property values hits small districts particu larly hard. It hurts tremendously, she said. The union president, Ms. Callahan, who teaches second grade at Westside Elementary School, said as a taxpayer she would vote in favor of higher property taxes to better fund education here. Its money well spent, she told the board. I just want you to know there are some people like me willing to take that step. The lions share of the $52,145,443 budget is the districts general fund of some $41.8 million. Only $33.7 million of the general fund revenues are expected to arrive this year, even though the general funds annual expenditures are expected to reach $38.4 million. The difference about $4.7 million will come from the funds reserves, which totaled about $7.9 million as of July 1. General fund revenues for $300,000 more than in the pre vious year. But the increase follows a reduction of 5.2 percent, or some $1.8 million, in 2010-11. The largest expense for the general fund is personnel, name ly teachers. Theyre projected to cost the district $20.8 million in the coming year while another $1.6 million is allocated to pupil personnel services. Negotiations between the district and the teachers union are ongoing, however, so their personnel costs could shift once a The budget also features $2,276,800 for food services. The district intends to use about $169,200 from reserves to balance that level of spending with $2,107,600 in current year rev enues, about 70 percent of which come from the federal and state governments. The district has set aside near ly $1.8 million for capital projects like ongoing heating and air conditioning upgrades at the high school, new buses and other expenses. Another chunk from reserves, about $483,000, is allocated to cover a shortfall in the capital projects fund. In other business that eve ning, school board members: 2011-12 district The report is required by state law for submittal to the Florida Department of Educa tion. It shows that the districts net assets fell in the 2011-12 fiscal year 6.1 percent, or $2.8 million, compared to the previous year, mostly due to losses in the general fund. The fund, however, finished the fiscal year on June 30 with about $56,000 more revenue than an ticipated and nearly $2.8 million less in spending than was originally budgeted. The savings helped boost the general funds reserves, which the state mandates must remain above 3 per cent of fund revenues. Florida Power & Light to install a solar power system at the middle school. The so-called photovoltaics system will generate only small amount of power, up to 5 kilowatts per hour, but the system will be incorporated into science and other class lessons as well. David Davis, the districts director of curriculum and instruction, said the electricity generated could power one classrooms lights, but not much more. If we do enough of this, we could get whole school running, he said in jest. FP&L will fund design and installation of the system and cov of the system will be transferred to the district. The board previously approved a similar agreement with the company for solar panels at the high school. The nice thing about this, with STEM [acronym for science, technology, engineering and math programs] and [BCMS] be ing a feeder school ... when the kids move on ... there will be a certain number of students who can follow this, said Mr. Davis. son that, according to a head count on the 9th day of school, enrollment is down about 100 students.

Mr. Hathcox said an anonymous excessive refuse and abandoned vehicles on the property. The zoning code states that no motor vehicle, part thereof, or trailer which is inoperable for 30 days or more, may be stored on any zoning lot unless either completely inside an enclosed structure or pursuant to a licensed junkyard and/or recycling business on the zoning lot. It further states that no discarded objects, including but not limited to appliances, building parts, vehicle parts, or equipment parts, may be stored on any zoning lot unless it meets the re quired enclosure or licensing provisions. T.C. Green, one of two tenants who live on the property, told the board that a four-wheeler and an old lawn mower on his lot belongs to a neighboring tenant but that the junk belongs to me. Collecting scrap metal, he said, is the way I make my living. Its been there two weeks, he said of the current scrap metal heap. I move it every two weeks. In other words, he said, the pile of metal that earned him a code violation in July is not the same pile of scrap the code enThis is a different pile, Mr. Green said, adding that he was unaware that he could not store the scrap in the yard until he received the code violation notice in his mail. Now I know I cant keep junk there, he said. How about if I put all that junk on my trailer and cover it with a tarp? No dice, the board said. The junk must go. Mr. Green promised to remove the junk, including the scrap metal and an unlicensed truck and a wrecked car in which a grandchild was killed. I will get it cleaned up and yall wont see me no more, he said. Ive got some land in Georgia. I can take it out there. Board chairman Jim McGauley said that was a novel soluheard it from any code violator since hes been on the enforcement panel. He also likened the idea to General Sherman and his Union troops trashing the peach state during the Civil War. Thats the first time somebody said theyll haul their junk to Georgia, Mr. McGauley said. Well call that the General Sherman strategy. Mr. Green was ordered to pay a $85 administrative fee and given 20 days to remove all the debris, after which the board said day and $10 per day for each day the property remains in violation, which is much lower than the up to $250. In the second case, Mr. Hathcox said a residence on Crews Road north of Glen St. Mary re mained in violation of the code this week after the owner was cited on July 20 for having abandoned vehicles on the property. Automotive vehicles or trail ers of any type without current license plates, the code states, shall not be parked or stored on any zoning lot unless completely inside an enclosed structure or pursuant to a licensed junkyard and/or recycling business on the zoning lot, or registered with the Planning Department stating the reason for such storage. The owner, Ann Watson, said she and her husband, Franklin, had cleaned up quite a bit of it since they were originally cited and promised to remove the rest of the items, including a couple of old trucks and some travel trail ers. My husbands an antique dealer and likes to tinker with old cars, Mrs. Watson said, but added that hes a truck driver and is only home on weekends and the projects. The board granted her request for an additional 30 days to remove all the vehicles. Meanwhile, she was ordered to pay a $85 administrative fee and told she and $10 for each day the violation continued. Thats fair, she said. amended the countys Land Development Regulations to delete sand mining as a permitted use in agriculture zoning districts. Mining is currently allowed if the landowner obtains an approved special exception application from the county commission. But, in the end, Mr. Hartley decided he wasnt ready to take the next step. Im really not sure yet, Im still looking at all options, Mr. Hartley reiterated late last week. I want to make sure its what I want to do; if it really needs to be done. I want to give it more thought, he said. The commissioner said he re mains opposed to the twin sand mining projects proposed by Tampa-based Old Castle Southern Group in the southeastern county and by Lake Wales-based E.R. Jahna in the northeastern county. Im trying to make it harder to get approval for a sand mine, said Mr. Hartley. But I dont know if that [the ordinance] is harder ... I dont know which way is better to get that accomplished. When asked if hed spoken to the landowners or Chamber of Commerce director Darryl Register about the ordinance, Mr. Hartley said, No. I havent heard from nobody. He also said he was unaware the meeting among large landowners took place. Mr. Hartley said he had con sulted with county attorney Terry Brown while preparing the ordinance and wanted to continue those discussions before introducing the legislation to fellow commissioners. He said the countys comprehensive plan, including a socalled urban growth boundary inside which one of the proposed sand mine sites is located, may provide a basis to vote against the planned mines. The boundary is intended to differentiate between areas where higher density urban land development should be encouraged and lower density rural land development should occur. The boundary encircles the central county communities of Sander son, Glen St. Mary and Macclenny. Im not an attorney. You have to make sure you do everything legal, Mr. Hartley said. Mr. Kennedy, speaking for the landowners, said initially the group was curious how the proposal came about, whether it was from a group opposed to sand mining or from Mr. Hartley himself. Nonetheless, they intend to stay alert for future developments. Mr. Hartleys intentions also made their way to Old Castle Southern. The company resubmitted its special exception application to county staff, said county planning director Ed Preston, and paid the roughly $600 fee on August 31. That occurred less than two weeks after Old Castle and E.R. Jahna withdrew their applications just as county commissioners were about to consider them at the courthouse on August 20. Old Castle spokeswoman Elizabeth Revell said by e-mail the company withdrew initially to wait for state and federal regulators to grant permits. Then, she said, the company reapplied so it would be grandfathered in under the existing guidelines and not be subject to the potential rezoning called for by Mr. Hartleys ordinance. The company learned that an ordinance was potentially being considered ... to ban sand mining in Baker County, she said. Seven days after resubmitting, however, the company again withdrew its application, which Mr. Preston said he was told was the former one.

Page11SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 Page10SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 BOB GER ARD | SPORTS The BCMS Bobcats got off to a great start on Tuesday, September 4 with a 24-0 home win over Bradford County. Head coach Rock Rhodens Bobcats controlled the game on both sides of the ball and stymied Bradford every time they tried to engineer a drive. Bradford couldnt do anything against the Bobcat defense. They got but one first down that evening, the result of an offside penalty. The Bobcats were rocked back on their heels when quarterback Joe Green broke his leg on the third play of the game, however. We were devastated, said Rhoden. He had worked so hard all summer and is such a great kid. But I am proud of the team for keeping it together and winning the game. Chase Taylor came in and engineered the offense. Will Rhoden scored two touchdowns and Savoy Jefferson got the other score for BCMS. Defensively, Sequan Griffin, Trayvon Clayton and Dalton Thomas bossed the line for the Bobcats. Those three big boys just shut them down and led the team in tackles, said Rhoden. The defense just carried the team. With Green sidelined the Bobcats will move to a more run-oriented offense. We had built the offense around his arm and now we have to move to the run game. Itll look like Baker County football, joked Rhoden.

Coach Buster Davis team has lost its first two games by a combined score of 136-0. That is difficult for Davis, who was an all star linebacker at FSU and played three years in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals. The Panthers will improve under Davis, but at the moment they are struggling. The small school is playing teams with a lot more talent and tradition and it is difficult to find a foothold. That should be a problem this Friday when they travel to Memorial Stadium to face BCHS. The Cats are licking their wounds after a 50-0 rout at the hands of Columbia High. The Wildcats arent used to that kind of abuse and are looking for someone to take it out on. Unfortunately for the Panthers, they are next in line.

Coach Ryan Sulkowski will have to keep his players from looking ahead to the following weekends district opener. The Cats open district play September 21 on the road against Clay County.

I am glad that they were able to experience it and gauge where they are in their training in comparison to the best in the state. It was a different caliber of competition for BCHS.

Although trees require water to grow and stay healthy, too much of a good thing can stress our trees causing growth loss, disease, insect outbreaks and in some cases death. A few tree species, such as bald cypress, is adapted to frethis excessively wet summer without harm. However, many of our trees will be stressed for several years even after the high toms usually noticed are leaf yellowing, shoot growth, crown dieback and defoliation. There are many factors that determine if a tree will survive soil characteristics and the time of year. Once a tree becomes weakened, it is more prone to insect and disease damage. When the ground becomes saturated, conditions are ideal for fungal problems that lead to root rot diseases. Flooded soil conditions promote reproduction and dis persal of these fungi but also promote the susceptibility of roots to infection. Saturated soils also re duce soil oxygen levels that may cause some roots to die leaving the tree with a smaller root system to recover from the stress. Many wood boring insects Flooding causes widespread re duced resistance to insect damage all at once, creating ideal con ditions for wood boring insect populations to reach epidemic levels. The best way to help flood stressed shade trees in a yard or park is to increase its vigor and prevent other stress factors. There are several ways we can improve tree vigor in our yards, but due to economic returns and practicality this does not apply to pine plantations. help your shade tree is to remove any sediment that may have accumulated. Next, consider aerating the soil so that roots receive the oxygen they need. Once the flood water recedes and rainy weather stops, consider applying light applications of fertilizer during the growing season to help keep your tree growing and healthy. Remember trees need several years to recover from experience drought again before the tree recovers. While large, established trees typically do not require irrigation, it may be necessary to water your tree for the next few years during times of drought. Also, consider limiting pruning activities and foot/vehitree for the next few years since it could cause additional root damage.
