A roughly $76,000 grant contract to do sonville. A meeting with the Baker County Commission to discuss the change is set for January 14. COA transportation director Debra Bowen said the shuttle will pick up riders here before stopping in Baldwin and making other stops further into Duval County like at Shands Jacksonville on the north side, St. Vincents in Riverside as well as others to be determined. COA has long had funding to transport low-income and disabled residents to Jacksonville and other locations for medical appointments and other necessary trips for grocery shopping or schooling. But, Ms. Bowen said, the Baldwin shuttle will be the open to the general public. The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) has deemed the shuttle as a low performing line, said spokesman John Finotti. Rather than discontinue the service, he said JTA is turning the route as well as grant funding that supports it over to COA. He said the shuttle averaged 35 passengers per day and four per hour during the Its operating costs ran about $150,000 that year, he said. At that ridership level, without changes to fares or the shuttle schedule, the route still needs about $30,000 more per year to per day. Those numbers dont seem to phase COA, however.

I called someone on the phone the other day to ask for directions. My conversation took about two minutes. In that two minutes I said hi, identified myself, asked for directions, got them, double checked that I had gotten them correctly, said thanks, told them to have a good day and hung up. Unless Im calling someone to find out how they are because I havent heard from them in a while, that is how my conversations go. They are direct, businesslike, to the point and short. If I checked my phone log I probably havent had a phone call over three minutes in length in a couple of weeks. That same day I was in the room while wife Kelley talked to one of her friends. She too, needed some information. Somehow, though, the conver sation she had did not follow the same pattern as mine. Not by a long shot. First of all, she didnt identify herself. When the person answered, she just started talking. She assumed, correctly it seems, that they knew exactly who they were talking to. I never assume that. If I call my brother-in-law Todd, I always tell him its me. Im sure he knows that but I tell him anyway. Its just how I operate. Kelleys conversation went on and on. I knew what she was calling about and kept waiting for her to get to it. Twenty minutes into the conversation she hadnt mentioned her actual rea son for calling. She had talked around it and in circles. I understand circular conversations and have had them myself. Usually, if Im talking in circles its to give the listener information they need so my circles get narrower and nar rower until I get to the point. Not so for Kelley. They just got broader and broader. There was a circle about one thing and a circle about another and they didnt seem to hook up at any point. She talked about having the flu. She talked about Sara Beths upcoming wedding. She talked about someone she had seen in the store. All these circles. It was kind of like those interlocking Chinese rings. You cant figure how they got on there to begin with or where they were going to go once they did. Eventually, after about 45 minutes she got around to why she was calling and found out the information that she needed. Granted, that isnt how she talks to everyone, but I have tion with someone she called for a hotel reservation. She didnt know them and hadnt met them but by the end, had gotten 30 percent off the hotel room because of her friendliness. I guess the point of all this is to again prove that men and women just think differently. All men are aware of this. We just cant manage to explain why it is. Well, I did some research. According to Psychology Today verse on six levels. Men well basically one level. Men converse in a straight line. The want to get information or achieve some goal. Pure and simple. Their conversations are usually short and to the point. They are active listeners, paying close attention to what they are told so they can gather the information they need. They usually take what they hear at face value and dont look for hidden meaning or sub-text. Women see conversation as an act of sharing and a way to explore their feelings. While beforehand and even rehearse mentally what they are going thoughts while they are talk ing, often on the fly. By talking about something to someone else it starts to make sense and patterns emerge. That is why a woman will sometimes say, I just want to talk about this. Talking helps them to think clearly and creatively. The article says that when a man is feeling down in the dumps he usually wont call another man and talk about it. Instead, he will hold up in his man cave and watch football until it passes. Not so, women. A woman will call a friend and vent. The article says that for women conversation is an act of cathar sis, by talking it all out she be gins to feel better and is able to work her way around to solving problems. While men are active listeners because they want to solve a problem or get information, women listen in a completely different way. Not only are they listening for facts and figures, they are listening for tone of voice, for hidden meanings, for things that are unsaid as well as said. The article claims that is the reason why men and women dont always converse very well together. They are talking about and listening for completely opposite things and for completely opposite reasons. So when a woman doesnt understand a man, theres a reason. When a man doesnt under stand a woman, theres a reason. Ive been saying that all along. I just couldnt get anyone to listen.

I have grown to love the small town atmosphere. The people I come into contact with here are some of the nicest I have ever met. My only complaint about the area is that some people do not seem to have any respect for their towns and neighborhoods. Im talking about the trash and garbage on the side of the roads fast food wrappers, drink cups, big bags of garbage sometimes in the middle of the road with cars hitting them and spreading garbage all over. I am aware of at least two county dumps, and wonder why people want to make the area look like a garbage dump. Returning from Starke the other day, I was behind a car when the drivers door opened way. I swerved to miss them. Folks need to take more pride in their county, and keep garbage until they can property dispose of it. Its up to the police to pull these people over when they witness these acts and give them tickets. Please people, have more pride in your communities.

Ms. Bowen said she doesnt expect the rates to change once COA begins operating the service. The shuttle makes stops in Macclenny at the following locations by request with at least two hours of notice: Northeast Florida State Hospital, Work Source on South Sixth Street, the Walmart Super center and the Walmart Distribution Center. The shuttle also makes stops along US 90 at the Publix and Winn-Dixie warehouses, the Michaels Distribution Center, Lane Avenue and at the Rosa Parks transit station in downtown Jacksonville, connecting riders to the larger JTA network. A JTA news crew visited the COA senior center in downtown Macclenny the morning of January 4 to make a promotional video for the shuttle and interview seniors who ride COA buses. They were hand-picked by COA staff. Mr. Finotti said the video will appear later this and JTAs Youtube channel. Its part of a rebranding campaign for the shuttle, which includes plans for a new name, logo and promotions. The Baldwin shuttle is funded through a federal rural public transportation grant funneled through the state transportation department that covers half the cost of operating the service.

The January 14 meeting with county commissioners is scheduled for 5 pm in the commission chambers, 55 N. 3rd St. in Macclenny, Ms. Bowen said. Little progress on COA transportation center plan Its been nearly two years since the Baker County in grant funding from the federal and state governments to build a transportation center. The project includes a bus garage, parking lot and fencing at the southwest corner of Buck Starling and Willis Hodges roads behind the Winn-Dixie shopping center on South Sixth Street.

EVERLASTING LOVE, MOM JANET BOGGS In loving memory of Joe Newmans8/28/31 1/11/09Husband, Dad, Brother, Papa, Uncle & Friend Gods Garden God looked around His garden and found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. Gods garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eye lids and whispered, Peace be thine. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didnt go alone, for part of us went with you the day He called you home.

I just want him to come to Jacksonville so that people will be quiet about what bone-heads the Jaguars were for not drafting him or acquiring him when he left Denver. Im a Jaguar fan win or lose. But there are people who absolutely refuse to be Jaguar fans because Tim Tebow isnt in teal and black. At least if they trade for him then well see how it goes. Give him the starting job and surround him with a spread offense like he had at Florida and see what happens. If he succeeds, great. If he fails, at least hes had a shot and the Jaguars are guaranteed a two to three year bump in ticket sales. Its a win/ win situation. movers and shakers, I would be reassessing the wisdom of adding Texas A&M to the conference. Not because they arent up to it; just the opposite.

In their first year they surpassed all the West teams except Alabama and who will make them a powerhouse for the next three years.

Its unclear exactly who owned the horse because a cou ple who used to reside at the property where the animal was recovered reportedly moved out after breaking up, the propertys owner, Leon W.

Taylor Rd. off Jack Dowling Circle measures one-sixth of an acre and includes a single-family residence, property records show. occupants for authorities as Kevin Crews and Sierra Stokes.

When the couple parted ways, place for the horse, but were unsuccessful. Theyre in Taylor. Im in Glen, so I dont really check up on them, said Mr. Gross. As long as they pay their rent, Im kids to me. Two neighboring residents had been throwing hay over a fenced enclosure at the north county property and leaving days prior to the horse being The horse was breaking down the fence and coming to the house because he wanted more food, said Georgia Monfort, director of animal control. She said the horse appeared to be a victim of long-term neglect. It was abandoned with no water, food, grass or shelter. Its hooves are cracking and its ribs are very visible. They dont get that way over night, said Mrs. Monfort. Hes in pretty bad shape. Macclenny veterinarian Dr. Joe Harrison estimated the horse to be 16 to 17 years old, she said, adding his age bodes well for a strong recovery because hes in the prime of his life. The vets evaluation report on the horse will be part of the information complied for the charges against the couple. But, Mrs. Monfort said, such cases can take nine months to a year before theyre heard in court and the county is responsible for keeping the horse healthy until then. With the courts approval, the county may turn the horse over to a rescue or another responsible party. For now, though, animal control is more concerned with keeping the horse stabled and well fed. The county is seeking hay donations from the public to help in that effort. They can be brought to the shelter, but space to stockpile the hey there is limited. Residents can also buy hay at Bennetts Feed on US 90 for donation to the shelter. The retailer has been storing donations for future deliv ery. In fact, a day after the horse was picked up, Mrs. Monfort said eight bales of hay had been bought and donated, and a horse rescue in Jacksonville donated a mineral rock, too.

Advanced Disposal submitted the lowest bid last year to provide once-weekly pickup service for only $5.93 per residential household. Though some concerns have been expressed by residents opposed to losing their twice-weekly garbage pickup schedule, Mayor Dopson said the city really didnt have much choice. This is the only option we have that does not force us to increase our rates, the mayor said. While commercial customers would continue to have the same collection frequency, depending upon the volume of refuse generated by their businesses, residential customers would have to get used to their garbage being picked up only once a week instead of twice.

Jefferson joined First Coast receiver DeAndre Johnson and linebacker Sherrod Pittman as the only area players on the team. Coach Ryan Sulkowski lauded Jefferson for his year. CeCe went out and did whatever was asked of him on both sides of the ball and still managed 15 sacks a school record, the coach said Sulkowski also cautioned that his young defensive end still has a way to go. This is the off-season where CeCe has to excel and develop. He has to work harder than he ever has before. We are excited to have him back for another two years, he said. Jefferson joined running back Falon Lee on the Associated Press 5A All State first team. Lee games this season to lead the Cats. Falons productivity on the ground as a senior was the best all-time in our schools history, said Sulkowski. The coach also pointed out that Lee was paired on the All State squad with Derrick Henry of Yulee, the best running back in the country, which is impressive in itself. We are ex cited to see what Falon will do on the next level, when he decides on where he will play his college football, Sulkowski said. Dillon Mills, the 6-foot, wart, was a second team All State selection. Mills is one of the unsung heroes of the defensive line who makes numbers like Lees so impressive. You cant have production in the run game without someone paving the way, said Sulkowski. I thought Mills did a great job of clearing out running lanes for Falon all season long. His second team 5A All State appointment pretty much represents our entire offensive line. Very little credit is given to those guys, but to be selected is an honor. Mark your calendars. There wasnt a lot going on over the holidays in Baker County sports but heres a look at whats on tap at the high school and middle school in the coming weeks. Basketball tips off again with games at Baldwin on Thursday and Friday (January 10 and 11). The next home game is versus Madison on January 15.

Theres a girls weight lifting sub-sectionals qualifier at the high school on Saturday starting The BCMS Bobcats travel to Lake City for a basketball game on January 14 at 6:15 pm. Every couple of years the Flor ida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) likes to shake things up by shuffling district alignments. The change usually comes because of shifts in enrollment as high schools move from one classification to the next based on enrollment. But they also like to keep things fresh by moving schools around to face new opponents. For the Wildcats, next sea son will be packed with district games. The Cats are in one of state. Gone are Clay County and Terry Parker, and joining the Wildcats, Bishop Kenny, Paxon and Forrest are Yulee, Ribault, Wolfson and Stanton. Yulee was 9-4 last season and went to the regional semi-finals before losing to Bolles. But the Hornets also boasted Derrick Henry, the best running back in the country. Henry graduates this year and someone of his caliber is hard to replace. Wolfson struggled last year with a 3-7 record while Ribault was 4-6. Stanton also had a tough the season. With quarterback John Wolford still in place at Bishop Kenny and Henry gone at Yulee, the Crusaders should continue to be the Wildcats top competition in the district.
