COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings The debate between 16-year incumbent sheriff Joey Dobson and his youthful challenger Cameron Coward grew more contested as the 25-minute affair moved along. The candidates sparred over crime statistics, the new jail and enforcing traffic laws as backers clad in campaign Tshirts applauded and hollered in sometimes raucous displays of support. Like the county commission candidates who preceded them on the stage, Mr. Dobson, the Democrat, and Mr. Coward, the Republican, were asked ini tially why voters should select them to serve as the next sher iff rather than their opponent. I have nothing against the sheriff, responded Mr. Coward. I think hes done this county extremely well. But, he said, it was time to pass the torch to another generation and his dual experience in small business and as a sheriffs deputy in St. Johns County make him the better choice. I think Ill do a great job. I know I will with your help, Mr. Coward said. Sheriff Dobson talked about his experience managing the department for more than a decade, adding that, I know what my agency does. I know how we have run Baker County and helped the people of Baker County and we will continue to do that in the next four years. At the last candidate forum in late July, which the sheriff Candidates for county comdressing issues like the Barber Road closure, sand mining, their political affiliation and others during the 40-minute portion of the program dedicated to the countys governing board.

Both incumbents said their respective experience on the commission and in the community sets them apart from their challengers. Mr. Crews pointed to his eight years on the board and his nurse management experience in Fraser Hospitals ER. Mr. Hartley pointed to his 12 years work in the community. Leonard Davis leaned on his A Macclenny man arrested nearly a year ago for supplying vodka to a teenage girl who later died was sentenced in county court on October 18 to a year in jail. James Roy Harmon, 24, entered a no contest plea before Judge Joey Williams to a single count of contributing to the delina minor. A companion charge was dropped as part of the plea agreement. Mr. Harmon, who has been out on bond since his arrest on November 22 of last year, be gins his jail term the evening of October 26. He admitted to furnishing Alexis Lloyd, 14, with the shots the evening of November 17 when she, her brother and other friends showed up at the defendants Barber Circle residence to eat pizza.

Six candidates for local office squared off debate-style at the high school the afternoon of October 20, exactly seven days before early voting begins here and across the state. It was the second election forum organized by The Press this year and featured a more lively format allowing candidates to respond to their op ponents answers. The rst forum in late July did not include rebuttals and each candidate for the same oce answered the same questions. This time around, some questions were posed to specic candidates while others were answered by all the commission or sheri candidates. Questions were collected from both readers and the newspapers sta during the weeks leading up to the debate, which started at 3 pm in the school auditorium and drew 100-200 attendees. Commission hopefuls elded nine questions and the sheri candidates seven.

ursday, October 25, 2012 T B C P Page 3 Page 2 T B C P ursday, October 25, 2012did not attend, Mr. Coward cast doubt on reports that crime has fallen in Baker County. He reasserted that claim at last weekends debate when asked why he believes crime is down, despite data from the Florida De partment of Law Enforcement (FDLE) showing crime rate drops in three of the last four years. My answer is simple, Mr. Coward said. A 26 percent increase one year and a 12 percent decrease the next year is not a true decrease. You havent even gotten even ... Nothing has de creased. The candidate then cited, mostly accurately, three years of crime rates: for 2009, up 26 percent; for 2010, down 11 percent; and in 2011, down 12 percent. Were still paddling up stream, said Mr. Coward. The candidate, however, failed to include years prior to 2009 in his analysis. FDLEs uniform crime reports show that the crime rate here spiked considerably in 2005 and again in 2009; but the net change depends on when you start tracking the changes. For instance, between 2008 and 2011, the latest year for which FDLE data is available online, the net decline was 15.8 percent. Over the last decade, since 2002, there was a net decrease of 30 percent. At the debate, Mr. Dobson offered preliminary crime data for 2012, which he said has been submitted to the state, but not yet released officially. For the the crime rate fell 20.7 percent, presumably as compared to the same period in 2011. If these figures are lies, I guess the FDLE tells lies also, said Mr. Dobson. Then the sheriff was asked about a recent claim made by his opponent in a lengthy campaign ad. It noted that the sheriffs ofthree years according to the BCSOs most recent audit. Is this claim true or false and debate moderator and Press publisher Jim McGauley. Mr. Dobson initially dismissed the claim as false, but added, We do have an accounting of what we have at the shersues moving to the new facility? We absolutely did. The sheriff alluded to not having enough staff to conduct the inventories, saying a position was created to include that job In his rebuttal, Mr. Coward held up a letter from the sheriff to auditors in which Mr. Dobson addressed the lack of an inventory. Its signed by you, Mr. Coward said to the incumbent. After the event, Mr. DobHe said each department keeps a separate property inventory, but nobody tracks property and ditors to review. Next the candidates tackled cally in 121, 228 and 125. Are you speed traps on major thoroughfares? the moderator asked. Sheriff Dobson immediately said he was not a fan of speed traps. He said he prefers that deputies enforce speed limits in the course of their normal duties, but hes not in favor of targetwrite tickets. His opponent, meanwhile, said speed limits and drunk driving laws are not enforced as they need to be. While he didnt address speed traps specifically, Mr. Coward said, I understand theres a good ole boy system in place, where youve had a little too much to drink, you run off the road and clip a mailbox, and well take you home. Thats going to end under my administration. Another recent ad from the Coward campaign criticized the sheriff for his support of the new jail, which was built with no taxpayer money but costs the county 75 percent more than the old facility did to house local inmates. He was asked what a better course of action wouldve been, given the dilapidated state of the former jail and estimates for its repair topping $1 million. Mr. Coward did not cite an alternative beyond saying he wouldve used creative thinking. Mr. Dobson responded by correcting a detail in a statement from his opponent. Mr. Coward said that in 30 to 40 years, the facility would be outdated, and when it fails, local taxpayers will bear the burden. He has no idea about our fa cility, said the sheriff. Mr. Dobson added that the projects duration was only 22 years, and some 18 years remain before the Baker Correctional Development Corporation, the and sold bonds to fund its construction, is scheduled to pay off the $45 million debt. It will be paid for in 18 more years, not 40 years, and it will be long entirely to you, the taxpayers of Baker County, and there will be revenue for the county commissioners, said the incumbent. broached the subject of race. The reader asked, I have been a lifetime resident of our county and I cant remember a time when there were no black deputies on patrol. Whats your plan to recruit and retain such deputies? Though neither candidate detailed a plan for hiring and keeping black patrol officers, both expressed a commitment to diversity and hiring any employees I believe everyone deserves an opportunity to do what they love, said Mr. Coward. If theyre willing to take the proper courses, get the training, to devote their lives to keeping you and your family safe, I dont care if theyre black, white, purple or green, theyre welcome. The topic of hiring, however, gave the sheriff an opening passed over Mr. Coward when he applied to the department following completion of his law enforcement training. If they apply properly and come to us, we will hire AfricanAmericans, Mr. Dobson said. What we dont hire are people mold. And I can tell you thats something we made a decision on with Mr. Coward. resume as well, noting his experience in the Civil Service managing large budgets, planning and developing policies and procedures for the government. I think we (the county) need more detailed policies and procedures ... and more long-range planning, he said. Eddie Davis, meanwhile, drew a contrast between his personal ity and the demeanor of his opponent. He said Mr. Hartley was more forceful personality, in his opinion, was better suited for the Mr. Hartley is a little more reserved, Eddie Davis said. A package of constitutional amendments on the November ballot could give many new tax breaks to various groups of property owners and reduce funding for local governments. The commission hopefuls were asked to express their posically, which would save money owners of commercial real estate, but put more strain on cashstrapped local governments. None of the candidates op posed the amendment outright, but some commented on how lost revenue should the amendment pass with 60 percent of the vote in November. Mr. Crews said he was unde cided on the measure, but could support other amendments that would cut property taxes for se niors and the disabled. They need a break, he said. Leonard Davis said hes already voted for the amendment, but called it, a double-edged sword. Our county is hurting for funding right now. So Im for it, but we still need more creative the road, he said. Eddie Davis also expressed support for Amendment 4, but said he would like to see the county eliminate its impact fees, too. That would be my biggest way to cut, he said. Mr. Hartley said he would support anything that would help senior citizens, but did not address Amendment 4 alone. Well have to look at our budget and decide what we have to do to compensate for that cut, as we do any other time, he said. There was also general agreement on cutting the salaries and selves to show their commitment to reducing county spending. They receive travel and cell phone stipends, about $29,000 in salary, plus health and retireWe have to look at everything, commented Mr. Hartley. Its going to be tough times coming up, his opponent, Eddie Davis, said. We should start from the top down, said Leonard Davis, adding that he would also like to cut other expenses in the county Leonard Davis was also asked to defend a recent campaign ad in which he pledged to attract county department and reduce homeowners insurance rates by improving the departments response to fires. He was asked how he would you fund these improvements. The candidate explained changes in the countys ISO ratings, which determine insurance rates, over the last few decades, but did not point to a funding source. After the debate, how ever, Leonard Davis, who served 1990s, suggested increasing the vices. Instead of an across-theboard increase, though, he said a tiered approach based on how station would be more appropriate. He said homes located ter service and lower insurance rates, so they should pay a higher assessment than those located farther away. Still, when candidates were tion about the best way to close were unanimous in avoiding any talk of tax or fee increases. Asked if they favored spending cuts, tax or fee increases, or a combination of both strategies to minimize the impact of each, the panelists focused on spending reductions and growing the tax base rather than ways to boost rev enue. The candidates did have differing viewpoints on the closure, by order of the county commission, of Barber Road. And you thought you were going to get out of here without said Mr. McGauley, the moderator, to gently rib the candidates. The road was closed due to safety concerns and complaints from the residents on what used to be a popular shortcut between SRs 228 and 121. The county still maintains the dirt roadway, and as such, the candidates were asked if they would support deeding the rightof-way back to private property owners and ceasing maintenance of the road. Mr. Crews said he would not pursue that course, at least not yet. He said the county has rebuild a bypass road from US 90 near the Walmart Distribution Center to 228 near the Walmart store, and then from the store west to 121. That might happen, said Mr. Crews. If we get that appropriation, then we can consider turning over the right-of-way. Mr. Hartley agreed, adding that the bypass road would also keep tractor trailers out of downtown Macclenny. Both he and Mr. Crews defended their votes to close Bar ber Road, citing safety concerns about the narrow wooden bridge over Turkey Creek and a sharp curve that leads to it from the west. But Leonard Davis and Eddie Davis (no relation) used the opportunity to reiterate, as they did at the last forum, their support of opening the road back up to trafLeonard Davis acknowledged the safety problems, though, saying the road should be improved to address those issues before its reopened. Last week Mr. Crews announced his opposition to proposed sand mining plans and in doing so joined the rest of the candidates, who have also publicly stated their resistance to the plans. Multiple reviews of the mining plans by both a county consultant and state regulators are still ongoing. So, during the debate, Mr. Crews, was asked why he changed his previous position, expressed at the last forum in late July, when he said wanted to hear all the information before taking a stand. Mr. Crews attributed his opposition now to his own research and prayer time. Nowhere did I er County, he said. COUNTRY FEDERALCREDIT UNION Switching accounts should be easy!

Our so ciety has become dependent on the government and thats just what the Obama administration wants. Most have became sheep. Dwayne Norman: My decision was made well before any of these debates. My vote is based on moral values that are straight from the word of God. Dana Pulley: My mind is already made up; I research as much information about each candidate as I can, then decided who best repre sents my POV. Jason Randall: Totally made up beforehand.

Crawford, Supervisor of Elections IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley Some readers may be following the discussion following the release two weeks ago of new goals set by the Florida Board of Education on reading and math skills. The board set percentage goals for students in the state to either reach or surpass by the year 2018. Nothing new here states are insisting on minimum standards on basic skills and in Floridas case we even assign school and district grades based on student performance and progress from year to year. The debate, however, swirls around the state boards setting different percentage goals based on race. In a nutshell, Asian students have the shortest distance to go reaching the goals, but goals are set higher. White students are lower, followed by Hispanic. Blacks are the lowest; they are per forming at the lowest levels in 2012 and even if they reach goals set by the board in six years, theyre still not expected to do as well as other groups. And thats the rub. One official labeled it the soft bigotry of low expectations, resurrecting a phrase coined in the George Bush years. Thats a subtle but damning indictment of what many see as condensation toward black students and ultimately, black culture, in this the fifth decade since the passage of civil rights legislation and integration of public schools. A reasonable argument as far as it goes. But what policies like this say in a broader sense is were still too fixated on race and ethnic breakdowns. And a major blame for this stubborn habit we have goes right to government agencies like, well, the Florida Board of Education. How this revised race and ethnic-based goal setting will affect Baker County schools isnt known, but what the education industry doesnt need in policy that, in effect, creates strata of learning. Do Asian kids excel generally? Yes. Do white kids do better than blacks and Hispanics. Seems to be so. Is anything public schools do likely to alter that anytime soon? Mmm, doubtful. Why do you suppose that is? Do you think its because of whats going on in childrens lives outside classrooms, off school grounds and at other times than during the school day. You think? What the Board of Education is trying to accomplish is fine, and it may be effective in tightening that learning gap in reading and math. Different races and ethnicities are now going to the same schools but spitting out different re sults, so pardon some of us if we cast a wary eye. It seems the more governresults, the wider the outcome gap appears to get. There are, of course, many exceptions and thats probably what keeps them trying to make things Trouble is, the more people go about their daily routines including school students aware that different things are expected of them on the basis of what color or race they came into the world belonging to, the less assimilated we all become. If you havent noticed, were feeling divided enough al ready. Dear Editor: I am writing to express my sincere disappointment with your publication of the story of October 18, 2012 Not guilty of child sexual batteries, votes Mann jury. I am outraged that this story was published. Have you no consideration for the poor child who is now known to every reader of The Baker County Press? Whether the accused was found guilty or not, this story should never have been published. Whatever happened to protecting the identity of the victim [and yes, her identity will be known, because you published her fathers name]? Did you not take into consideration that it will now be known by every person of Baker County, plus any others that read this publication, that this child considers herself a victim of sexual assault. Baker County is a small community and inNow, not only does this child have to live with the circumstances of the accusation and everyone and anyone knowing who she is. Shame on you for not considering the full impact of this story. Did the entire county need to know that this man was not found guilty? What purpose did it really serve? That you would stoop to such low standards just to get a headline is uncon scionable. Kimberly Robinson MacclennyRace-based student goalswell-intentioned, misguided Outraged by story onM ann trialIm not as young as I used to be. What in the world could cause me to say that? The middle age belly? The hair graying? What oh, what? Okay. All of that stuff. But mainly its how lousy I feel after driving a school bus for 19 hours. Like Ive been hit by a base to work right on the keyboard. My eyesight is a little fuzzy around the edges. Every inch of me feels fuzzy around the edges and its working its way to the middle fast. This past weekend was my yearly trip to Arkansas in a school bus. Why do you go to Arkansas in a school bus, you ask? Because thats the only way to get there with school kids. Every year, the school district graciously allows me to take part in the Petit Jean Performance Festival, a prestigious celebration at Petit Jean State Park, in Morrilton, Arkansas. We live in cabins on top of a mountain, cook our own food and perform with the big boys. By the big boys I mean colleges and universities. We are the only high school in atten dance each year so it is doubly an honor to be there. This year, there were performances by LSU, San Jose State, Capital University and us. So, I crawl into a school bus and along with guidance counselor Diane Wells we tag team all the way to Arkansas. The kids play games, rehearse, read, etc. We drive and try pretty unsuccessfully to sleep on a school bus. I used to be able to do the drive alone. 19 hours alone. I must have been out of my mind. And young. Not any more. In our precious free time we hike up and down the mountain to a beautiful waterfall. This year I begged out of the hike. Ostensibly it was to start cooking dinner but in reality the prospect of crawling back up that mountain trail didnt hold much allure to me. Pretty sad, eh? Ill have to do something about that before next year. Our performances were very well received. We brought two this year, one a short story by Jean Shepherd called County Fair that had them laughing their heads off as we duplicated a spinning, tilting, whirling fair ride on some folding chairs. The audience loved it when the performers turned themselves upside down in the chair and loose change went everywhere. Our performers, Megan Powell, Joel Econom, Caitlin Mason, Caitlin Crawford, Hunter Williams and Rebekah McNeill did a great job with the show, solo performances and in a group workshop. The second show was some thing called Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been by Joyce Carol Oates that we are looking at performing at the Florida Theatre Conference. It is one of the most singularly disturbing pieces of literature ever written. One minute our performers had them laughing at their goofy antics. The next they had them glued to their seats watching a chilling story of abduction that was so intense that one audience member couldnt take it and had to leave. He explained later that the tension was too great. It was a two-person show featuring my daughter and BCHS drama teacher Sara Beth Gerard, who adapted and directed the show, and Josh Willoughby. It was a very exciting few days and made even more so at the end when we were asked to direct the festival next year. We will decide next years theme, do a lecture and a weekend long workshop with the college students and graduate students culminating in a performance at the end of the festival. That gave me a lot to think about as we drove down the mountain and headed home. Now that Im back and seated at the keyboard, I am feeling very creaky and fuzzy but happy and re-energized as we get ready for A Broadway in Baker Christmas next month. A trip to Arkansas in a school bus does that for me. I hope I never get too old for that. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD BAKER C OUNTY C OMMISSIONMIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF Tropical Storm Debby is just a fading memory four months after dumping torrential rains on Baker County. But the devastation the storm left in its path is still being felt by folks whose homes were destroyed by floodwaters and those whose daily lives were disrupted by the destruction of two bridges. Raging waters washed out the Cedar Creek Bridge on CR 127 north of Sanderson and the South Prong Swamp Bridge on CR 229 south of Interstate 10, forcing work, to go shopping, or to visit friends or relatives. But help is on the way. The county commission ap proved an agreement with the state last week obligating the Florida Department of Transportation to replace both structures. construction startup dates were announced, but work has already begun on a temporary bridge on over the South Prong Swamp. The temporary bridge over what is commonly known as Greens Creek, a tributary of the St. Marys River, could be open as early as Thanksgiving, County Manager C.J. Thompson told commissioners during a board meeting on October 15. Robert Fletcher, head of the countys road and bridge de partment, said this week that sufficient right-of-way already existed to build a temporary bridge on 229 because that span had already been scheduled for replacement in 2017. Tropical Storm Debby just accelerated the urgency. No such right-of-way was available to erect a temporary bridge across Cedar Creek on 127, but one would not have been built anyway because residents north of that bridge can use CR 124, a paved road, to get where they need to go, Mr. Fletcher said. On the other hand, he said, people who live near CR 229 south of Greens Creek have a very limited selection of detour routes. They can take Clet Harvey or Richardson roads, both long and unpaved, or they can go all the way to Raiford before hitting another paved detour route back to Macclenny. After Tropical Storm Debby passed through in late June, county road crews were at work the most heavily damaged dirt roads to lessen the hardship on motorists who could no longer use the bridge. We put asphalt millings on Richardson Road from Clet Harvey over to Mud Lake Road, Mr. Fletcher said. That has helped a lot. The county manager said construction on the new Cedar Creek Bridge is expected to begin in ear ly spring 2013 and Mr. Fletcher said the project should be completed within four to six months. No tentative startup date has been announced for the new Greens Creek Bridge, which is not as critical because the temporary bridge will be there. Mr. Fletcher said the temporary span will be constructed of steel panels placed on pilings driven deep into the ground. He said both bridge projects will be jointly funded by the Federal Highway Administration, which will pay 80 percent of the cost, and Florida DOT, which will pick up the remaining 20 percent. Another transportation issue discussed by commissioners last week centered on a proposal to join a new Northeast Florida Re gional Transportation Commission, with the City of Jacksonville serving as the core member. If all counties join the association, the region would be comprised of Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns. Mr. Thompson told commissioners member ship would cost Baker County $6,570 a year if Baker is the only outlying county to join, or about $4,850 if other counties joined as well. Jacksonvilles share would be $96,000 a mitment. Its a good project, said Commissioner Jimmy Anderson. It brings all the region together and can help us with some road funding. It can give us more leverage. Perhaps, Mr. Anderson said, membership could even help the county obtain state funds to build a much-desired transpor tation link, sometimes referred to as the Walmart to Walmart Road, between US 90 near the Walmart Distribution Center and the Walmart Supercenter at CR 228/Interstate 10. Such a road would help divert town Macclenny by giving them a more direct path from I-10 to US 90. However, commissioners tabled a decision on the proposal pending further study. They said they wanted to see what other counties in the region do before deciding whether or not to join the transportation commission because theres no guarantee much from its membership. If theres no value to the citizens of Baker County theres no buy-in for Baker County, Mr. Anderson said. During last weeks board meeting commissioners also: the Baker Community Counseling Services Inc. to act as a drug court coordinator and liaison between the court, attorneys, treatment providers and other agencies involved in counseling, treatment and supervision of drug offenders. The agreement calls for the county to pay BCCS up to $20,000 a year. extending greetings and best wishes to all commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Mor rill Act Establishing the Ameri can Land-Grant System and the University of Florida as Floridas 1862 Land-Grant University.

The Baker County Commission is entering into its fourth year of dipping into its rainy day reserves to meet the countys nancial needs. With dwindling revenues the budgetary planning, preparation and execution process must be revamped. Working with the department heads, in open public workshops, with all commissioners present and not delegating this budgetary process to county employees is a MUST. This would allow the commissioners to analyze the proposed department budgets in detail, line item by line item. The commissioners could see proposed purchases of items that will require a bid process. Also at these workshops, the commissioners could determine if certain items, such as of ce supplies, could come under a standardized purchasing policy. Buying in volume at discount prices could be a huge savings. Raising taxes or implementing new special assessment fees in order to secure adequate revenue to operate Baker County should be the last resort. Imposing additional taxes or fees on citizens will only add to their nancial hardship during these troubled times. More prudent involvement by our commissioners in the day to day spending of our county revenue is a must, if our county is to survive the nancial crisis we are in. As a conservative REPUBLICAN I will work closely with the other commissioners and county employees to ensure that Baker County is getting the most for its limited revenues.

BCHS principal Tom Hill shared the troubling data point during what he called his state of the school presentation to the school board the evening of October 15. Much like the presidents annual State of the Union address, Mr. Hills address to the board recapped where the high schools been and where it hopes to go in the future. The principal attributed the low rate of college attendance 34.5 percent here ver sus 51.7 percent across the state to Baker County students having low expectations for themselves. Are we missing kids? Yes, Mr. Hill told the board. He said students who leave the ed in the 34.5 percent. Still, board member Jesse Davis was not surprised to hear about the lack of students motivated to seek college degrees immediately after high school. He said he offered a $1000 scholarship last year and, we had to Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson suggested conducting exit surveys with seniors to uncover why theyre not seeking higher education after graduation or where theyre heading instead. Perhaps families cannot afford the bill for college tuition, she said. The problem is not limited to Baker County, either. Mr. Hill explained that other small, rural counties in the region, like Bradford and Union, are seeing similar outcomes. But, theres reason for hope. Mr. Hill said he struck a deal with the College Board, which administers college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT, to administer the SAT to some 300 juniors in February free of charge. The testing, estimated to cost about $20,000 under normal circumstances, will provide us an inroad to reducing that 34 percent, the principal said. The partnership with the College Board is only a one-year commitment, however. dent performance during the 2011-12 school year, including FCAT and other testing, at tendance rates, discipline problems, and the soon-to-be released graduation and drop out rates. Among the more positive developments: points from the previous year and a 22 per cent increase since 2009. exam upped their scores 10 percent over the last three years. altercations dropped 40 percent, which Mr. Hill attributed to more severe punishments for physical violence and more monitoring between classes by teachers. Though the drop out and graduation rates expects a decline in graduation due to a shift in how the rate are calculated. The schools goal for this year is to graduate at least 80 percent of the students who en tered high school four years ago. But begin ning last year, BCHS could no longer count the recipients of special degrees like GEDs as graduates. Given that change, Mr. Hill said, he expects the 2011-12 graduation rate to be 15 percent lower than this years goal, or 65 percent. We need to be very open with our com munity, he said, because it will appear our graduation rate has plummeted ... But its OK. We will do right by kids and continue to show progress going forward.BAKER C OUNTY SCHOOL BOARD CIRCUIT COURTBCHS grads not college-boundA Macclenny man who violated terms of probation and house arrest for his part in a burglary spree in August, 2010, will be going to prison for 50 months after entering a plea in circuit court on October 16.

Instead, her life will be remembered that afternoon during a memorial service at the intersection in Glen St. Mary where she was killed by an alleged drunk driver on March 29. morial service in Baker County to honor the lives of people killed in The county commission authorized the Baker County Memorial Ms. Kirks mother, Debbie Pruett, on September 4. The mother asked us if we could wait until October 28, her daughters birthday, said Sheriff Joey Dobson, who appeared with Ms. Pruett at the commission meeting last month and said his department would assume responsibility for the memorial services. Were going to put up a metal a memorial wreath, Sheriff Dobson said. Were going to have one of our chaplains there, Sam Kitchens. Hes a pastor at Church of Christ in Macclenny and also our programs coordinator. Well probably get the state attorneys (Ms. Pruett) get some closure. Originally, the plan was to conduct the service in the morning but was later changed to 2 pm, the sheriff said, because some of Ms. Kirks co-workers at Northeast Florida State Hospital wanted to attend. Ms. Kirk, a single mother working as an aide with mentally ill patients for four years, had just ended her evening shift at the hospital the night of the accident and was heading northbound on CR 125 to pick up her children at her mothers home on CR 127 in Glen. They lived in a rented house in Macclenny. A heavy-duty welding truck traveling at an estimated 40 mph ran through the stop sign at East Andrews Street and slammed into the passenger side of the victims compact car, killing her instantly at 11:40 pm, authorities said. The impact pushed her 2004 Toyota across the intersection and into the north ditch of Andrews west of 125 where it came to rest facing east, said FHP Lt. Kevin L. Blom. The truck spun around and came to rest in the same north ditch, also facing east. Troopers on the scene collected several beer bottles that were strewn about the pavement, Lt. Blom said. The driver of the 2007 Dodge truck, Randall H. Morrow, a 25-year-old welder from Mississippi, was treated for minor injuries at Fraser Hospital and released. Passenger Gregory D. Calvert, 29, also of Mississippi, was not injured. Both were wearing seat belts; Ms. Kirk was not. The highway patrol later charged Mr. Morrow after blood samples taken at the hospital revealed he had a blood alcohol level of .128, well above the limit of .08 for intoxication. He is currently awaiting trial for DUI manslaughter, DUI impairment and DUI with injury or property damage. He and his passenger were re turning to a motel near Jacksonville International Airport when they approached the intersection shortly after leaving the nearby ton Harvey. Ms. Pruett later enlisted the memorial program to honor the memory of her daughter and othin the county. Sheriff Dobson said all the memorial signs will be uniform in size and design, unlike the myriad of homemade signs and memorial structures, including ers, that loved ones place on local, state and federal roads throughout Baker County. That doesnt mean other markers will be removed, however. We will never remove the ones that are already there and we would nev er ask anyone to re move them, Sheriff Dobson said. The sheriffs office fatalities on county roads and automatically schedule roadside memorial services for them. The service will be available only upon said. In addition to the sheriff, Ms. Pruett was accompanied to the county commission meeting last month by Jacksonville victim advocate Carl Harms, who said that by a drunk driver in Mississippi. Mr. Harms said that incident is what led him to campaign for tougher laws against drunk driv ers and to work as an advocate for other victims who have lost loved ones in similar tragedies. There are over 50,000 travel-related deaths annually in the United States, Mr. Harms said. These numbers are not acceptable. And its not just alcohol or drug-impaired drivers that are killing innocent victims, he said, adding that many times drivers who cause accidents are brushing or combing their hair, putting on makeup and even eating while driving. Now, seven months after Jen nifer Kirk died, her mother and her three kids are left to mourn her death as they try to move on with their lives; Debbie Pruett without her daughter and the children without their mother.

John 3:5 ElectEddie DavisJr.the citizens candidate for County Commissioner, District 5 WHEN I WAS RECENTLY ASKED BY THE FLORIDA TIMES UNION THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS, THIS WAS MY RESPONSE:1. My faith has helped instill in me a set of values that will serve the people well. I will bring honesty, transparency, a strong work ethic, respect for the people and integrity to the office. 2. My family is close and supportive. Stability in a mans life allows him to concentrate on the business at hand without outside distraction. I have a large family that can act as a cross section of public sentiment to help me make critical decisions. They have no reservations in regards to holding me accountable or offering their opinion. 3. My common sense approach to problem solving can be applied to every facet of county business. A wise man will seek good council. He will identify problems, survey his tools to fix it with and put forth the effort to accomplish the task. As a commissioner it will require team work and I will do my part. 4. My small business experience has given me management and people skills that can be applied toward the goal of a successful administration. Governing requires diplomacy and fairness. The peoples interest are primary and a balance must be found between providing services and the funding necessary to support them.1. I am very concerned over the growth of government over the last several years. Revenues have not kept pace with expenditures and the county reserve fund has been tapped to balance the budget to the point where we simply can not afford to resort to this tactic to the same degree in the future. We are going to have to scrutinize the budget more closely and earlier to reach a better resolution. Having to balance the county budget with dwindling revenues; yet maintain services to the citizens will be the challenge. It can not be shied away from. 2. I want an inventory of county equipment and resources performed each year. We not only need to account for the countys items, but some determination made on the status of the equipment. Is it functional or scrap and what amount is in supply? 3. I want more communication by our government with the people on issues. I want issues fully vetted before the public. More and more people are interested in the work of the commission. We can video the commission meetings at a minimal cost and we can certainly be more inviting when the public comments. A more hospitable meeting environment for the public will stimulate more input.On November 6 please vote Eddie Davis for County Commissionerand together we will make a difference in our community.Paid by Eddie Davis Jr, Republican, for County Commission District 5.

This is why I support online streaming of board meetings & citizen advisory committees on important issues. I believe in lower taxes & fees, which will spark more economic development providing a greater tax base and more jobs. This is why I oppose the special assessment for EMS, and I support a line-item by lineitem review of our county budget by the commission. I believe in conservative family values. Families are the heart of our county and by providing an expanding job market; our children will have the choice to remain in Baker County instead of seeking employment elsewhere.

Before last Fridays Homecoming game versus the Terry Parker Braves, the Wildcats were looking at three consecutive district games to decide if they Coach Ryan Sulkowskis reign. They put their foot forward the evening of October 19 with an emphatic 42-21 win over the Braves. Ahead they face two teams that are tied with BCHS for the district lead, Forrest and last years champs, Bishop Kenny. Its easy to get distracted by the hoopla associated with Homecoming. There are dress up days at But thats what coaches are for to motivate and encourage and narrow their players focus on the game ahead. tered Homecoming energy might have gotten to the 7-0 lead. The Wildcats moved the ball well, but Parker visitors thought they could spoil the Homecoming party. As the clock inched closer to halftime, it looked as if they might be right. But then Corey Lawler got a seam and it was all over but the shouting. Lawler juked and jived and powered past the Braves defenders and then turned on the jets for a 61-yard touchdown run to open the scoring for BCHS. The PAT was no good and Parker held a 7-6 lead. The Lawler run woke up the Cat offense and inkills and four minutes later Lawler demonstrated the truth of the adage. Lawler found Mike Boone in the open and Boone simply outran the Braves for a dynamic 64-yard touchdown scamper. Lawler added the two-point conversion and BCHS took a 14-7 lead. found a little space from the Parker 21-yard line and punched past the Brave defense, waltzing into the end zone. Lawler was unstoppable in the second the two-point conversion for a 22-7 lead. With under a minute to go, Falon Lee picked off a pass to stop a Parker drive and ran the ball back 36 yards for yet another score. Lawler ran in the con version to put the Cats up 30-7 going into the ex tended halftime. The defensive touchdown inspired Lee. With nine minutes to go in the third period he broke free for an exciting 44-yard touchdown scamper. The conversion attempt was no good and the Cats led 36-7.

BCHS faces a dangerous Rebels team on the road Thursday, October 25 at 7 pm and then travels to Bishop Kenny to take on the reigning district champions.

A win versus Forrest and a Kenny victory over Parker sets up a titanic struggle on November 2 with Kenny for the district championship.
