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.comA Glen St. Mary man was sentenced to 15 years in prison this week for his part in a drunk driving accident on U.S. 90 that killed two Sanderson men more than two years ago. Christopher Wayne Wheeler, 37, was at the wheel of a 1994 Jeep Cherokee that ran the stop sign at the Smokey Road intersection and collided with the Ford Explorer driven by Ardris D. Paige, 43, a parttime basketball coach on his way home from practice at the Baker High the evening of November 16. Mr. Paige and passenger Christopher V. Jefferson, 20, a former Wildcat athlete who played in a scrimmage game that night, were ejected in the crash and died. Two players on the basketball team, Dela no Lee Paige, 19, and Marquis Paige, 17, were injured. Members of victims family expressed their grief durmorning of March 19. Many members of both the victims and defendants families were present and comforted one another after the hearing before Circuit Judge Mark M. Mose ley. If you were in his [Christopher Jefferson] presence, you were easily smiling, said the victims cousin and friend Marcell Thomas. Mr. Thomas described Mr. Jefferson as an ambitious, funny young man who could connect with anyone instantly and who was very close with his siblings. He would hop in the car with me to ride anywhere I was going ... I would pick him up to go anywhere just because he would keep me laughing, telling me about everything he was experiencing in his life, said Mr. Thomas. There was more lost in the crash than the lives of two men, he said. These were two people that affected many lives and there are so many people that will never be the same, Mr. Thomas told the court. A written statement from Mr. Paiges father, Larry G. White was read into the record. He said his son was a hard worker at the state hospital and a military veteran who spent time in Korea, Kuwait and on U.S. bases. Mr. Paige was set to leave for Army Reserve train ing in California the day after his death. Mr. White requested a sentence of 20 years, 10 years for each of the victims. No amount of years can bring my son back, said his mother Barbara Paige. I cant call him or go to his house and sit for hours just talking and laughing ... She said it was months after the grisly accident before she could drive on U.S. 90 because she feared running over something of her sons. Mr. Paiges wife of 17 years recalled her last moments with Mr. Paige before the tragedy, hair for the last time and how he left the house in a good bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll.

One of the suspects is charged with attempting to run over a county deputy before leading them on a high-speed chase through a nearby residential neighborhood. Deputy Daryl Mobley responded to a disturbance call at the Econolodge on Woodlawn Rd. shortly after midnight, and about the time he and Deputy Chris Walker reached the area a vehicle left the motel on Woodlawn Rd. at high speed and entered Interstate 10 eastbound. Deputy Walker and Cpl. Matt Riegel stopped it shortly after and took Shameka Armstrong, 32, of Jacksonville into custody. She allegedly had kicked out a motel room window, and gate they found the room unoccupied and evidence that it was being used to package marijuana into small baggies for sale. They also found powder and crack cocaine and $790 in cash, along with a wallet belonging to Delvin Manning, 32, of Macclenny. Shortly after, motel manager Karon Clark alerted ofstaying in the room had pulled back into the parking lot.

He said about 65 acres were scorched o L.E. Harvey Road in the south county, coming close to residential properties like the one shown above. That blaze was contained Sunday afternoon and crews remained there early this week for mop up operations. A 22-acre wildre started on Sawtooth Dr. o Steel Bridge Road north of Macclenny the same windy afternoon and was contained about two hours after the L.E. Harvey Road re. Both res resulted from authorized burns that got out of control. The threat of wildre activity remains moderate to low in Baker County, according to states drought and re danger indexes. So far this year in the Suwannee Forestery District (Baker, Bradford, Suwannee, Columbia and Hamilton counties), 104 wildres have burned 408.8 acres.JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Florida Legislature is poised to pass additional reforms to the Florida Retirement System, a public pension plan benefitting more than 40 percent of Baker Countys workforce.

No, this isnt a pre-Easter column. Well ... in a way I suppose it could be, as youll see. My wife is getting to be a soft touch. For years, she chanted the mantra that we will never, ever, have an animal in the house. As a result, weve had a series of dogs and cats that lived on the front and back porches. My favorite cat, though it has the name Pumpkin, is other wise known as Front Porch. My daughter Sara Beths calico on the back porch is, of course, called Back Porch. The other cat Sara Beth deposited on the front porch is called by a variety of names better off not seen in print. I call her the Cat Burgler because she has learned to open the front door and then hides for hours in closets and under beds. A few months back, my niece Ashton gave us her turtle Speedy. She has had Speedy since she was a child and Speedy grew from being the size of a Little Debbie cake into the size of a real live cake. I talked about Speedy in another column. My wife allowed Speedy into the front room since he lives in a terrarium. She has really taken to Speedy, who will eat from her hand. But this weakening in her resistance prepared none of us for Molly the bunny. She lives in our front room. Son Spencer came home from UF for the weekend and saw a bunny in the front room and threw up his hands in dismay. What? Ive wanted an inside dog all my life and I go off Peter Rabbit running around the house? What is wrong with this picture? Dont look at me, I replied. Talk to your mom. Have you checked her temperature? Is she delirious with fever? Is this the same woman who swore wed never, ever have an indoor pet? How did we get this bunny? The how takes a little telling. Like Ado Annie in Oklahoma, my wife cant say no when it comes to high school kids selling stuff. We have Wildcat cards, cookie dough, Krispy Kreme donuts, Camp Cards, more Wildcat cards, candles whatever is being sold as a fundraiser. Most of them we forget to use. I have a Wildcat card from 2004 in my wallet. Back to Molly. One of the girls in my wifes college class had a bunny. She snuck the bunny to school in her purse every day because she couldnt keep it at home. Finally, her mom wanted the bunny out of the house. My wife Speedy the turtle off Ashtons hands that our middle school FFA teacher niece might want the bunny for her classroom, so Kelley said yes. No dice where Ashton is concerned. So weve got a bunny. I like the bunny and the bunny likes me. The bunny sits on my lap and watches basketball with me. She has a nice spacious cage and puts her feet up on the bars when I come into the room and I let her run around on the She is house trained, sort of. Son Dylan loved the idea of a cuddly bunny and immediately scooped up Molly and put her in bed with him. Molly was happy as a ... bunny. Except ... Devon, the girl who gave us the bunny, had one word of warning. Molly makes her de posits on furniture. She had a litter box and used it most of the time, but she liked furniture. And Dylan. Arghhh. The bunny wet me and my bedding. Oh, I forgot to tell you ... So far, Molly and I are on good terms in that regard. My wife learned to feed Molly by hand so shes happy. The cats, not so much. They are probably wondering what it is that they have to do to get in the house. Hey, weve lived here for years and we get tossed off the porch if we try to come inside and the tortoise and the hare get a free pass? Whats fair about that? Im hoping that if Molly works out with Kelley that we can work our way up to a dog. If that happens, Ill let your know.

Jahna Industries), we once again turned to Facebook to see if Oldcastles intention to reuse the City of Macclennys wastewater and cut back its operation to forgoe withdrawing water from the aquifer had endeared any positive reactions from readers Heres some of the comments we got back: Jeremy Austin: I dont live in Mac clenny, but if you wanna see what your ponds and creeks will look like after they mine, take a ride through Keystone Heights! Dennis Whelan: How many times can you say NO! E.R. Jahna just doesnt understand. Marilyn Penrod: NO! Julia Gross, Katie Robinson and Jordan Doyle: Nope. Keith Newman: Reclaimed water? How safe is that being pumped down in the ground to push sand? Sounds like that is a pollutant in itself to me. Elizabeth Barber: NO WAY! Raymond Phillips and Brad Walt man: No. Terry Moshier: There is only one choice. No sand mining in Baker County. The Baker County Press: @ Mr. Keith Newman right now the re claimed water is being dumped into a creek which runs into the St. Marys River. Terry Moshier: Just say no; if we give them an inch they will take a mile. Theresa Rhoden: No. Absolutely not. Elizabeth Barber: Are they really allowed to dump that stu in the riv er? ~ shudders~ Benny L. Fish: And what happens after the 5 years are up? JoAnne Burger: Absolutely NOT Facebook fansWhat you had to say ...Curtis Tharpe: Jeremy Austin makes a great point about the lakes in Keystone. Nobody knows what happened to the water there, but they have a sand mine. That alone is enough for me to say No Way Jose. Terry N Barbara Norman: No! Keith Lane: Nope. Its a crying shame what they do to the lands and I do not and will not support this. Jerome Reimer Sr.: No, because once they get started, they will decide that they need extra water from the aquifer. It is best for the county if they do not even let them get started. John Bellovich: Nope! Charles Jackson Parker Presnell: Give them an inch and they will take it all and from what I have read our county manager just might be on their side. Melissa McGlew Coker: Support it just because the aquifer will have 5 years protection? Um, no. Marc Lyon: NO! They are using this reclaimed water horse as a means to get their foot in the door. Theyll eventually ask the SJRWM [St. Johns River Water Manage ment District] for a well permit and suck the ground dry. Paula Lane Brittain: Do we honestly think the City of Macclennys reclaimed water could support such and operation? Keith Newman: @ The Baker County Press. Im not a water ex pert by any means, however, wouldnt dumping affluent into a creek be better than pumping it directly into the ground via a well? It takes years for water to naturally soak into the ground, thus ltering naturally. Pumping it down into the ground water seems to me like an instant pollutant (no matter how minimal). I say let em pound sand ... The people of that area have been dumped on enough. Garbage dump, heavy metals mining, now a sand mine ... Whats next?

MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comABC Childcare & Learning Center and the school districts Baker County Pre-K Center are the top preschools in the county when in comes to preparing children for kindergarten. According to recently released data from the Florida Depart ment of Education, which oversees voluntary pre-K programs statewide, 93 percent of ABC Childcares kids and 91 percent of those at Pre-K Center passed two screens that determine whether theyre ready to began school. Only students who complete both evaluations and at least 70 percent of the preschool programs are included in the states kindergarten readiness rate calculation. The rates represent the percentage of students who meet the 70 percent attendance threshold and pass both evaluations. The latest readiness rates correspond to the 2011-12 school year. ABC Childcare, located on South 5th Street in Macclenny, had 26 of 28 students pass the evaluations. One evaluation tests the ability to name and sound out letters. The other tests for knowledge, skills and behavior that children are expected to exhibit before entering kindergarten. The Pre-K Center, on South Boulevard East in Macclenny, serves more children than any other preschool program in the county. It had 116 of 128 students pass the evaluations. The preschool with the largest increase in its readiness rate, compared to the previous year, was Love Center Preschool on Minnesota Avenue, also in Macclenny, at 21 percent. The preschool jumped from only half its children passing to 71 percent doing so. The facility served just nine children, seven of whom met the substantial completion threshold and were screened, with six of them passing. The Pre-K Center, Baker Head Start I in Macclenny and Westside Nursery Preschool in Glen St. Mary all made gains in 201112 between 3-5 percent. First United Methodist Preschool in Macclenny, Tiny Tots in Glen and Little Playmates Preschool, also in Glen, lost ground from the previous year. The latter preschool showed the largest drop, from 100 per cent to 67 percent. Little Playmates, however, served only nine children with seven meeting substantial completion and being screened. Of those, four passed. Eagles Nest School Readiness Center in Macclenny, which is usually among the top preschools in kindergarten readiness, did not have enough children com plete at least 70 percent of the program to be included in the states calculation.

Scotty Rhoden, who got behind the Chevrolet as it turned on Tom Norman Rd., then sped east into the Macclenny II neighborhood on Pine and then Estates, in. The chase ended when the suspect lost control of the Chevrolet and was struck a second time by Deputy Mobleys patrol car. It had also collided with a patrol vehicle driven by Deputy Jacob Satterwhite. Several hours later, Deputy Mobley arrested Delvin Manning as he walked north on South 6th St. He had $590 cash in a pants pocket. Lt. Rhoden inventoried the motel room and said it contained a large glass container of mari juana, an electronic scale, boxes of small baggies commonly used to package pot, a baggie of powder cocaine, baggie of crack cocaine, shoe boxes with packaged baggies of pot and the cash. Jimmie Manning was booked for aggravated battery on Depufelony possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of cocaine. Delvin Manning is charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Ms. Armstrong was booked for criminal mischief. Operations chief Gerald Gonzalez said Deputy Mobley has a bruised hip from the collision with the mirror and is expected back on the job at mid-week.

From page 1Dear Editor:On behalf of the mayor and city commissioners, Im writing to acknowledge how fortunate we are in having Bob Gerard and Kelley Norman in our education system. Even though Baker County is a great place to live and has some of the best people, I would have never thought years ago we would have the opportunity to enjoy the artistic cultural events brought here by Bob and Kelley. Their talents help so many others realize and display their talents for the enjoyment of so many in our community. We are so proud of them and encourage them to keep up the good work.Gerald Dopson City manager, MacclennyLETTER TO THE EDITOR Couple asset to the countyDear Editor:Every year, its the same here in Northeast Florida and I presume, hounds. Wandering lost on the side of a highway. Still more hounds, wandering up to someones yard looking for, and begging for, some bit of food, some scrap of love and attention. Still more of them, landing in a kill shelter somewhere with virtually zero chance at adoption, and only a slightly better chance at rescue being able to take them on. And more hounds, laying dead on a road or in a ditch, either having starved to death or having been hit by a vehicle, or shot by someone who didnt appreciate having their chickens killed, their trash raided or their sensibilities disturbed by a baying, crying, hungry hound. Far too many people (yes, I know not all, but it seems the vast maferent from a weed eater, a lawn mower, a rake or a shotgun a tool to be used during hunting season and then discarded in a myriad of ways, none with a happy ending, or just ignored (the lucky ones?) until next hunting season. While I am not a hunter, I dont have a huge tree-hugger aversion to the notion if its done as humanely as possible and the killed beast provides food. What I have a deep philosophical abhorrence and loathing for is those hunters who are too cheap to provide decent care for their dogs that work so hard for them vetting, heartworm prevention, love and attention. Those hunters who think that if a dog is spayed or neutered they wont hunt. Those hunters who think halfstarved dogs hunt better. Hounds will hunt because thats what hounds do and have done for hundreds of years. Reproductive parts have nothing to do with the regardless of whether theyve eaten in the past two weeks or not. walker hounds and black and tans, at the end of hunting season be cause a lot of guys are simply too cheap to feed them for the 10 months of the year they are stuck in pens with a herd of other hounds, so they dump them. Again, the lucky ones end up in shelters. Then a few months before next hunting season, theyll be cruising Craigslist or the kill shelters, looking for next seasons work crew. And yes, I know there are good hunters who are responsible and treat their hounds like members of the family. I know people like that; some are This is why we at The London Sanctuary have so many unadopt able hounds. The only hounds we have ever adopted out have gone up north and a couple of other states; weve never adopted one locally. These are wonderful, funny and sweet family dogs. Yes, they have certain quirks, predilections and traits, as does every other breed. They do like a good bit of exercise (most anyhow, mine are lazy and sorry in that regard), and they can be on the noisy side. No dog breed is for everyone, but if you can handle a lab or a dalmatian, you can certainly handle a coonhound. Please consider fostering or adopting a coonhound if your home and lifestyle suits one.

ursday, March 21, 2013 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, March 21, 2013 MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF The Baker County school district is $10,000 richer today because of a promise made two years ago in connection with the National Childrens Study the largest long-term examination of childrens health ever conducted in the United States. The school board received the money on the evening of March 18 from the University of Floridas Dr. Mark Hudak, professor and chairman of UFs pediatrics department and lead investigator for the national study in Baker. counties selected in the U.S. to participate in the study in 2009, after which UF opened a study Department and began the task of recruiting women to enroll in the program. Today, 105 study centers are scattered throughout the country. While presenting Superinten dent Sherrie Raulerson the donation, Dr. Hudak explained that the money represented $50 for each Baker County woman who had signed up to participate in the federally-funded study, which will follow 100,000 children from before birth to age 21 to learn how drens health, development and quality of life. Baker County was one of the al project sponsored by the NIH (National Institute of Health), Dr. Hudak said. We have had a marvelous reception in the community. This donation is for the nearly 200 women who signed up. Standing in front of a school district slogan that contained the words Where Children are First, Superintendent Rauler son said the district accepted the donation which we so greatly need to do a lot of things in our district. Recruitment of pregnant women or mothers of newborns began in 2011 and in November that year UF launched an advertising campaign encouraging women in Baker County to sign up with a promise to make a $50 donation in your name to the Baker County School System. All study locations were semethod to ensure children and families across the nation from diverse ethnic, racial, economic, religious, geographic and social groups were included in the research. By taking a long-term view of children from birth to adulthood, study teams hope to learn more about how children grow healthy and how this leads to healthy adults by determining the root causes of many childhood and adult diseases and mental health disorders. Study teams will examine family genetics, neighborhoods and schools, chemical exposures, food and water, as well as childrens social and behavioral environ ments. In other matters on the agenda the school board: Northeast Florida Community Action Agency Inc. to coordinate computer and jobs skill training for approximately 20 low-income students May 25 to August 1, 2013 in the so-called Summer Data Busters program. The contract calls for the agency to select participants and pay the school district $4,025 for 115 hours of classroom instruction, including course materials and textbooks. Training will be conducted at Baker County Middle School. This is a very good program; it gives students valuable training, said school board chairman A. McKendree, this years valedictorian and a finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program, which rewards the nations brightest students. Reagan is making history for Baker County High School, Mrs. Raulerson said. Weve not had a student get this far (in the quest for a National Merit Scholar ship). She said Ms. McKendrees ACT and SAT scores were so ex emplary I cant even count that high. Further, she said, the young woman has been voted Most Intellectual and Most Likely to Succeed, and to top it off she plays sports. Ms. McKendree told the audience her ambition is to go to medical school and become a pe diatric orthopedic surgeon. The superintendent and Baker High principal Tom Hill said they have no doubt she will succeed.

The Baker County Code Enforcement Board finetuned its policy on demolition of substandard structures with an eye in pre venting violators of the building code from gaming the system. The board dur ing its March 11 meeting authorized the countys buildcases up for a hearing if substantial progress isnt made in removing unsafe structures within a month or two of the issuance of a demolition permit. The permits expire six months from the date they are issued by the building department. At the urging of member Gerald Herndon, the department will inform violators they to demolish structures deemed unsafe or a health hazard. If no action results the case will come before the CEB as a violation. The discussion arose during the boards monthly meeting during a status update of the Canaday mobile home park just south of the state line on SR 121 north. It is abandoned and the remaining rental trailers on the property are dilapidated. The code board ordered all of them removed as safety hazards and a demolition permit was issued in July, 2012. The owners failed to correct the violations within the ala day commenced on January 24. Board attorney Will Sexton said the term of the demolition permit should not be confused the more urgent need to rid property of unsafe and unsightly structures, Getting a (demo) permit does not bring could authorize 30 days to get the permit and get it done. In the sole case before the CEB that evening, landowner William Fotch Staten of Glen St. Mary was given two weeks to clean up a tract on Honeysuckle Lane off CR 139B. Mr. Staten said a track hoe he intended to use to complete the clean-up of refuse and garbage needed repairs and he was awaiting parts. The landowner attended last months CEB meeting with a similar violation on a nearby tract, and according to the building department he simply moved refuse to the Honeysuckle location. He is liable for the $85 administrative fee to cover the countys cost of inspection and days if he fails to complete the clean-up in 14 days.MIKE ANDERSON P RESS ST AFF An old concrete plant in Macclenny that was shut down years ago was ordered condemned by the city on the same day the owner, Anderson Columbia Co. Inc., agreed to correct a list of unsafe conditions cited by a city inspector. The condemnation order was approved by the city commission on the evening of March 12 to serve as an incentive to Anderson Columbia to move ahead swiftly with the repairs and cleanup on the property along Florida Avenue. If we dont condemn it they time to do whatever, Joy Chapman, the citys code enforcement Once a property is condemned, she said, the owner has 30 days to begin corrective measures, including seeking permits and hir ing contractors, or risk having the city take care of the matter and place a tax lien against the property until the city is reimbursed. Once its condemned and all issues have been corrected the property can be taken off that status, she said, noting that she would like to see the whole thing go away but apparently were not allowed to do that. In response to the citys letter containing a list of code viola tions, Anderson Columbia agreed to make the necessary repairs and other work to clean up the propriment to the surrounding neighborhood a few blocks north of the middle school and the kindergarten center. In a letter addressed to Ms. Chapman dated March 12, Anderson Columbias land manager Chuck Farmer said the company tention ponds, on the property and secure all structures. The company also, Mr. Farmer stated in the letter, will inspect and structurally evaluate all concrete bin walls and remove any that are unsafe, secure all fencing and gates around the property and remove all block walls that are hazardous. Further, he said, the company will remove fuel tanks that re main on the property and have ager assess the site for any con tamination. Concerning the general ap pearance of the property, which extends more than a block west of East Boulevard, Mr. Farmer said the company will remove the weeds and do a general cleanup of the property and then maintain the property. Nonetheless, even with Mr. Farmers letter in hand, city commissioners voted unanimously to issue an order of condemnation on the property after Ms. Chap man and Fire Chief Buddy Dugger spoke. The chief said a building on the property had been used by homeless people in the past, including someone who apparently ter. It was extinguished by city This building needs to be condemned, Chief Dugger said. Its a big safety concern of mine for my personnel and for the kids in the neighborhood. The Anderson Columbia property is one of several parcels re cently cited by the city in an ongoing effort to clean up unsafe, dilapidated structures that have become an eyesore and a blight on surrounding neighborhoods. The Florida Avenue parcel was recently rezoned from industrial to commercial to make it more attractive to potential developers. In another condemnation ordered by the city last month for an old house at 137 Barber Rd., commissioners granted the owner additional time to make repairs and bring the property up to code after Ms. Chapman said tremendous progress has been made already on the property. Sus Austill, who has owned the house for three decades, assured the city that she now has repairs to the structure that she had begun years ago. I have spent over $50,000 in materials and labor in remodeling this home, Ms. Austill said, including replacing all the windows with double-paned vinyl windows and siding, replacing the wiring and plumbing, replacing paneling with sheetrock and on the rear portion of the house. hardships kept her from completing the restoration, she said, but what she started. This is my home, although I have been renting in Micanopy since 2010 in order to be close to my job with the Veterans Administration (in Gainesville) while undergoing clinical supervision for professional licensure. During her absence, she said, renters vandalized the house and she eventually began using it for storage of salvaged materials she planned to use in the remodeling process. She obtained an estimate of $6,700 from a contractor to do foundation work on the structure and repair a sagging chimney. She also has plans for roof and plumbing repairs to the house where she was married in 1982. I have a lot of emotional investment in this house, Ms. Austill told commissioners. Its my home. Its where I want to retire. Commissioner Phil Rhoden, who will replace Gerald Dopson as city manager in May, said he was impressed with the work Ms. Austill has done at the house recently and told her he looked forward to her return to the neighborhood.

I struggle every day, she said. I have to hide my tears from my children so they dont see me cry. I have to hold everything in from them so I dont hurt them and so they dont have to worry about me ... Ive loved this man for 24 years. What am I supposed to do? Before the judge approved his sentence, a sobbing Mr. Wheeler apologized for his actions. I wish I could go back and change it, he said. Im so sorry. Im sorry. A Florida Highway Patrol investigation determined via DNA that the defendant was at the wheel, based on bloodstains from knee and forearm injuries. Mr. Wheelers blood alcohol lev el was measured at .182 more than twice the legal limit. He has a previous DUI conviction as well. Judge Moseley used the occasion to remind everyone presdrinking and driving. We all know what happens when we drink and drive, he said. Weve been educated for years and years on the severity of this. Every community is affected by this. My guess, in an audi ence this size, there are individuals here who have done this very thing had alcohol and gotten behind the wheel. The only dif ference between you and this gentlemen is luck good fortune. The judge said Mr. Wheelers plea agreement seeks to incorporate the values of both justice and mercy. The defendant pled to one count of DUI manslaughter, which drew the 15-year prison term, four years of it mandatory. He was given credit off the sentence for 674 days already spent in county jail. In return for his plea to one count of vehicular homicide, Mr. Wheeler received 15 years of probation to begin upon his release from prison. On two additional counts of DUI with injury or property damage, the judge agreed to a sentence of time served. Judge Moseley urged Mr. Wheeler, upon his release, to Live a life that in some way re pays society for what youve taken and to honor the memories of the victims. From page 1

It would give new hires the option of enrolling into the investment, or defined-contribution, plan or the traditional plan. If they fail to make a choice, theyll default into the investment plan, they do today. Sen. Simpsons proposal would require elected officials and senior management employees to enroll in the investment plan, however. The senate bill also includes incentives to attract workers to In 2011 the legislature passed and Gov. Rick Scott signed into law a requirement that workers enrolled in the Florida Retirement System contribute 3 percent of their salaries to their pensions, which is saving the state an estimated $861 million per year. The Florida Supreme Court upheld the law, which was challenged by the state teachers union, in January. would reduce the employee con tribution to 2 percent for those who select the investment-style plan. It also extends the vesting period for the defined-benefit plan by two years, from eight to 10. The vesting period for the defined-contribution plan would remain unchanged at one year. In Baker County, 41.3 percent of workers are employed by government and earning $34,325 on average annually, according to Florida Legislatures Office of Economic and Demographic Research last year. While the changes, if signed into law, would not effect current public employees, they would impact the workers who arrive in the state retirement system as current employees become pensioners in the future. Small county funding secure Beyond the pension reforms, much being debated in Tallahascantly impact Baker County. And thats a good thing. Following meetings with state legislators at the capitol last week, County Manager C.J. Thompson said three potential problems he was watching for all appear to have little chance of surfacing. Mr. Thompsons major con cerns were job cuts at Northeast Florida State Hospital and the Florida Department of Corrections, and an effort to decentralize the Florida Department of nancial burden for county health departments on county governments. They [legislators] not in budget cutting mode and theres been no mention of cuts at DOC [department of corrections] or the state hospital, said Mr. Thompson. Regarding the health department, he said theres no momentum for changes at this time. Small counties like Baker County with low property values and a limited tax base are given additional funding by the state annually. Mr. Thompson said he doesnt anticipate reductions in those funding streams, either. They [legislators] not in budget cutting mode and theres been no mention of cuts at DOC [department of corrections] or the state hospital, said Mr. Thompson. Regarding the health department, he said theres no momentum for changes at this time. Many government agencies, zations will still be competing for that additional money, but its clear budget issues will be less contentious this year. Clerks concerned about unfunded mandate Clerk of Courts Al Fraser said hes hoping some of the projected surplus makes its way to the court system, which has been underfunded in the state budget in recent years. Thats forced the state to transfer additional money in the middle of the fiscal year from other priorities to keep courthouses operating. In addition, Mr. Fraser and his fellow clerks across the state want the legislature to eliminate an 8 percent service fee paid to the Department of Revenue on monies sent in by the clerks. The fee amounts to $35 million statewide, said Mr. Fraser. Theres also a bill proposed that would place the expense of hiring a magistrate to preside over Value Adjustment Board hearings on the county. Today, the county is represented by an attorney and the county commission appoints value adjustment board members to hear appeals from property owners regarding their proper ty tax valuations, which directly impacts the amount of their tax bills.

Allen Van MeterIn loving memory of Clarence Bennett Jr.12/27/1951-03/20/2006His GardenGod looked around His garden and He found an empty place. He then looked down upon this 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 this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered Peace be Thine. It broke out hearts to lose you, but you didnt go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. WE LOVE YOU, SHALLE AND FAMILY The family of Mallaveene Crawford would like to say how much we appreciate all the love and support we received during the loss of our precious mother. Thank you for all the prayers, calls, cards, visits, wonderful food and beautiful flowers. Also, thanks to V. Todd Ferreira Fu neral Home for the care they provided. The Crawford familyIn loving memory of Gracey Faith CrewsDaughter of Tommy and Tracey Crews02/17/2005-03/20/2005They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal. But neither time nor reason will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache that lies behind our smiles. No one knows how many times we have broken down and cried. We want to tell you something so there wont be any doubt. Youre so wonderful to think of, but so hard to be without.

MOM, STEPHANIE, ROBBYN, ADAM AND KARRIGAN In loving memory of Bud Davis03/23/1986-02/14/2007Happy Birthday!Bud Davis has and will be missed greatly by his family and friends. We would love to hear his voice and see his smile just one more time, but we know we must live for the Lord and go to Heaven to be able to do that again. Our family is not the same since his death, but whose is when death has touched it? We must take one day at a time and continue with our lives, for thats what he would want us to do. He was a person many looked up to, and if we could say something to him today, it would be how much we love and miss you. Until we meet again. It has been one year since you left us, and it feels like it was yesterday. You were a great man who was the backbone of our family. THE DAVIS FAMILYB-BELOVED FATHERU-UNIQUE MAND-DEDICATED TO LIFED-DEVOTED TO HIS FAMILYA-AVID OUTDOORSMANV-VALORI-IMPORTANT PERSONS-STRONG In loving memory of my Dad Elmus (Bud) DavisMy Dad day you passed away. I would have had time to tell you all the things I needed to say. I never got to tell you how much you mean to me. Or that you were the best dad, better than any man could be. The last time that I talked to you I wish I would have known, I would have said I love you. If I only you passed away, Id give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile. Id tell you that I dont think I could live without you, not even for a while. Id kiss your cheek and take your hand, and tell you its okay to go. And tell you that Ill miss you more than youll ever know. But you were gone so quickly. Before you even knew it, you were standing at Heav ens gates looking through it. Now God has called upon you, its time to get your wings. To leave this life behind you and enjoy all of Heavens beautiful things. So wait for me in Heaven, Dad, dont let me come alone. The day the angels come for me, please be there to bring me home.

She said the inux of more players and plans for the senior leagues to play out-of-county teams and reduce the number of repeated intra-league matchups delayed the release of the 2013 schedules until opening day on March 16, which is pictured above. Because we only have a few teams in each of those upper age leagues it seemed like a great idea, Ms. Burnsed said in a recent post to The Press Facebook page. They wouldnt have to play each other six or seven times each to get enough games completed to be eligible for all-stars post season play. However it did mean we had to wait for the North Florida district sta to complete the interleague schedules before we could complete our local schedules. League ocial Jerry Carter did not return a call seeking further details about this years league.

JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThis week students at the middle and high schools are getting a closeup look at the effects of smoking and chewing tobacco as part of a national campaign that culminates with the 18th annual Kick Butts Day on March 20. Nationally known anti-tobacco speaker Rick Bender a survivor of mouth cancer he attributes to using chewing tobacco as a teenager shared his story with groups of middle schoolers on March 18 and high schoolers the following day. Mr. Bender, who started using spit tobacco at age 12, opened one session at the middle school on Monday by asking the students if theyve ever tried the product. Only a few hands went up. But when he asked if they knew anyone who used dip regularly, nearly all the students raised their hands. Mr. Bender of Sarasota, FL grew up in California and played baseball in high school, which was part of the reason he started using a couple of cans of dip per week. He said his aversion to cigarettes and peer pressure also contributed to his habit, which increased to one can every other day by the end of high school. By 1988, Mr. Bender, then in his mid-20s, was up to a can a day. Thats also about the time he noticed a little sore on the side of his tongue, which was nothing new. Similar sores, appearing as white bumps or rough patches of white tissue in his mouth, had been coming and going for years. But this time the sore didnt go away, and instead grew rapidly to the size of dime on his tongue. You want to talk about hurt, this thing hurt. I couldnt speak, I couldnt eat. It was rubbing across my teeth, Mr. Bender said. He consulted a family physi cian who couldnt diagnose the sore. He was directed to another doctor, who biopsied the growth that proved to be cancer an undifferiented squamous cell carcinoma to be exact. The very aggressive, fast growing cancer, as Mr. Bender described it, was all because of my use of this stuff right here, spit tobacco, he said while holding up a small can of the nicotinelaced product. That dime size sore was the tip of the iceberg, said Mr. Bender. It took more than 12 hours of surgery to remove the tumor, but the operation also left him without part of his tongue, nerve damage that cost him 20 percent of his right arm function and a metal plate used to reconnect his right jaw, which had to be sev ered to get at the cancer. Some weeks later an infection from the plate destroyed most of his right jaw. The same infection came back two decades later to take much of his left jaw. Twenty years later, Im still dealing with the consequences of using spit tobacco, he told the youths. After reviewing the many carcigens present in both cigarettes and chewing tobacco and how their use leads to high blood pressure, gum disease, tooth loss and increased risks of heart disease and cancer, Mr. Bender, 51, gave them his bottom line. Regardless of how old you are, the day you start using tobacco of any kind, is the day you put your body at risk for cancer. And the longer you use it, the big ger that risk becomes, he said. That doesnt mean you shouldnt quit, Mr. Bender continued. Because the day you quit and every day after that, the risk is going to start going down. But the day you start, is the day you put yourself at risk for cancer for the rest of your life. He also asked students for help in getting their friends and family members to quit using tobacco. You may save their life, said Mr. Bender, who has spent the last 22 years speaking out against tobacco products. Following the hour-long program, a handful of students came forward to get Mr. Benders autograph. The 18th annual Kick Butts Day is Wednesday, when members of the high schools SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) club will be hosting a Tobacco House of Terror on campus along with the Baker County Health Department. The haunted house-like event will showcase the dangers of tobacco use and ways tobacco com panies target youths. Kick Butts Day, an annual celebration of youth leadership tobacco use, is organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and sponsored by United Health Foundation.

On March 14 the JV Cats defeated Columbia High 9-2. The Wildcats exploded for all of their runs in the second inning as the Tigers struggled to keep the ball in the strike zone. The Tigers pitching fell to pieces in the inning and many of the Cats reached on walks and hit batters. The JV Cats will host West Nassau at 6:30 pm on Thursday, March 21 at the baseball field.

After a loss to First Coast in their opening game of the season, the Lady Cats have been perfect. This past week they won three games, including a squeaker to nemesis West Nassau. The girls pushed their district record to 6-0 with a 19-0 rout of Forrest in four innings on March 12. The game was shortened by the mercy rule. The Wildcats got 11 first inning runs, followed by 7 in the second and a single run in the third. Delicia Washington scored four times. Ashton Alford scored three, and Kylie Holton, Brooke Roberts, Payton Parker and Brandie Callaway scored four runs. Melanie Sweat, Corley Sweat, Genie Taylor and Branda Jarvis each had one run. Washington slugged a homer and a triple. Mackenzie Wingard, Corley Sweat and Callie Paine shared the mound. The Wildcats got one of their biggest challenges on March 14 in a 12-11 slugfest against Yulee at the BCHS field. The Wildcats trailed 11-9 in the last inning when Branda Jarvis hit a walkoff double to give BCHS the victory. The game had gone back and forth all night. The Cats went on top 2-0 before Yulee scored four runs in the third to take the lead. BCHS tied the game in their half of the third. Yulee exploded for six runs in the top of the fourth but BCHS answered with a five-run fourth. Both teams got a solo run in the fifth inning before Jarvis heroics in the seventh. Callaway scored four runs for BCHS. Washington, Holton, Jennifer Hodges, Sweat, Roberts, Taylor, Jarvis and Parker all scored, with Holton hitting a home run. The Cats destroyed West Nassau 14-1 in Callahan on March 15. Sweat, Holton and Wingard all homered that afternoon, and Washington had a pair of triples.

The 2011 BCHS grad is currently the starting shortstop for the University of North Florida Ospreys. Holton, who joined the Ospreys after graduating from Santa Fe college where she was a two-time all-conference player and batted .311, has continued to excel for the Ospreys. The junior sports marketing major is hitting .326 and turning in some strong defensive work on the field with a .905 fielding average. Holton played shortstop and catcher for Coach Jami Rodgers at Baker High, and helped lead the Lady Cats to the Final Four in 2008. She hit eight home runs in her sophomore year and helped the Cats win two district titles. She also played volleyball at BCHS. Holtons best game as an Osprey came on February 10 versus Bethune-Cookman. She was 3-for-3, hit .417 and scored twice. She also hit .400 in a win over UCF in the following game. She was 3-4 and scored the game winning run in a February 20 win over Oakland. Kayla is the daughter of Bill and Debbie Holton of Macclenny.
