Lindsay Danielle Chace was heading east and the 2001 International semi tractor-trailer driven by Ernest Thomas Williams, 43, of Jacksonville was heading west when the Kia, for a reason still under investigation, crossed the center line and hit the truck head on, according to Trooper K. Hilliard of the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP). As the semi and Kia left the roadway and into the southern tree line near West Thomas Drive, the vehicles struck the front of a 1994 Cadillac that was trailing the Kia.

Spring break next week will be a welcome reprieve for parent Kathrine Tidwell, who says her child gets stressed and moody when testing time rolls around. The best part is the hives, she said on The Press Facebook page recently. They emphasize this test way to much! Another Facebook user, Rebecca Scribner, said her son usually comes home exhausted with a headache after standardized testing. Angela Callahan teaches second grade at Westside Elementary and leads the local teachers union. She said high stakes testing, while entrenched in public education, takes a toll on teachers, too. My son worries about it for sure, she said. He is a wonderful student and makes excellent grades, so he has no reason to worry, but he still does. Its sad the amount of emphasis we put on one test. It certainly isnt the teachers fault as we are required to prepare them for it. And in a couple of years that one test will determine how much money the teacher makes and if he or she gets to keep their job. Thats a lot of pressure to put on any person, student or teacher. Still, public education in Florida is built on standardized testing aimed at measuring student performance, comparing students at difference schools and in different districts, and evaluating the effectiveness of schools. The states FCAT and other standardized testing instruments affect nearly every aspect of public education here and across the state. But what if students didnt have to take them? What if some students could avoid the stress and anxiety that grips countless children and teachers this time of the school year? It may not be widely known, but they can. The alternatives are not any easier aca dent progression plan states each student must participate in statewide assessment tests. What the plan doesnt say is theres no penalty for opting out of FCAT testing and the district lacks a formal policy outlining what happens if a student opts out or how parents can go about doing so. Long-time school board member Patricia Weeks said no policy is needed because the progression plan already addresses the issue. Assessments of some kind are here to stay, she said. State education forces and the general public want to be assured that students are receiving an education that prepares them for life after high school ... Unfortunately, testing is the preferred method of assessing the value of education being offered in our state. A left-leaning public education advocacy group known as United Opt Out National disagrees. Its dedicated to ending high-stakes standardized testing in public schools. The groups been publicizing its second annual Occupy the Department of Education rally at the federal departments headquarters in Washington, D.C. of April. The groups website describes the event as a four-day gathering of progressive education activists endeavoring to resist the dethe previous administrations and persists with the current one. pany, Pearson, is paid by the state to develop FCAT testing instruments, score them and distribute the results.

On the same-sex marriage debateThe U.S. Supreme Court began heard arguments this week on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans. So we asked our Facebook friends on March 26, Whats your take on the issue? Should it be up to the states? Is it the latest civil rights injustice issue? Should government have a place in sanctioning relationships at all? Heres at look at some of the more than 70 responses we saw by late Tuesday evening: Christopher Apromollo: Why is two peoples relationship anyone elses concern but their own? William Hughes: They should up hold what states decided. Porsche Alise Mahan: Love is love no matter gender or race! Robert Thompson: My personal opinion is its nasty. But it doesnt af fect me. If they let states decide for themselves, couldnt it be a problem? What if they get married in a state that allowed it, then your work or anything else forced you to move to a state that doesnt allow same sex marriage? Would you have to get a divorce? William Hughes: What they done in the past is that states do not recognize the marriage. Kandl Duggers: God created marriage to be between a man and a woman only. Anything else should not be legal (or condoned) in my opin ion (and Gods). Just because people think something is OK doesnt make it right. Jason Randall: Its a good thing this isnt a theocracy. There are tons of laws in the Bible we choose to ignore, yet this one always comes to the forefront. Dana Pulley: Im for same-sex marriage. We have gay friends that have been monogamous for nearly 20 years, yet constantly face outrage over their lifestyle. Then weve got straight friends who arent monogamous, and no one gives it a second thought. It is a civil rights issue, and frankly there should be no question at all of them being allowed to wed, in a civil ceremony, just as so many straight couples do these days. Amanda Lucas: I have gay friends and relatives and I promise you, they dont care how you feel about their re lationship, nor whether you recognize their love for each other. Its not for us to judge. Only God has that power. Let them love. NOH8! My personal be lief is to let them get married if that is how they want to live. Give them rights to love, live and support one another as a married entity and stop forcing your judgement on their life. Jason Randall: Personally, I dont understand why so many people are anti-monogamy. Being against gay marriage tells me youd rather them sleep around with hundreds of partners than to nd happiness with one. Or to lie to themselves. Adam Tomlin: Im all for anyone doing whatever they want, as long as it doesnt aect me. My question is, is this going to be the end, or when this gets settled will we then begin talk ing about how more than two people should be able to marry? After all, love is love, and who are we to judge what others do? William Hughes: This Country was founded on bible principles. Its ne if you do not want to live by it but why should [the Supreme Court] have the right to redene a religious term like marriage. And this is in no way a civil rights issue. People choose to be gay. Its not the same as how it was for the blacks back in the day. Nancy Storch Oliver: I dont believe it is right. Marriage was instituted by God and that is between a man and a women. So I dont understand why it is so important to be married. Why cant they make a civil union with the same legal rights as a marriage but dont call it a marriage. Christopher Apromollo: If you feel that way, should atheists be allowed to be married? Christina Harris: OK. One, people do not choose to be gay; two, this country was founded on the fact people wanted religious freedom; three, everyone against gay marriage is going to look just as stupid as the people against interracial marriage and segregation. You can live your life but dont push your version of how people should live on others. Good thing about America, its the land of the free. In the end, youre just going to have to deal with the fact everyone is dierent. Ashley Wilkinson Hunter: As we grow rules/laws must be molded/ changed to t the times. Of course when they were written it was not the norm for same sex couples to be together as it is now. But look at what was, child brides, slavery, even What you had to say ...to have sex with minor children was OK. Now all of that has been changed and its all frowned upon. I think it should be allowed; change is needed as the times change. David Church: Wow, how about California voted same sex marriage down, and the elites in Hollywood said no way and are taking it to the supreme court saying the voters in CA are wrong. Sheldon Beasley: In a constitutional republic, it is the duty of the government to ensure that all people, including minorities, are treated equally in the eyes of the law. Look at all the changes of the last 230 years. If you dont like same sex marriages, its a moral issue for you, so I say dont marry a gay person. Aaron Scott: I am for gay couples having similar rights to married couples. But I am against the redenition of marriage. You dont get to redene that just because it doesnt suit you. The core truth is that marriage means a particular thing, or it means pretty much nothing at all. If gay marriage is permitted, there is not a single logical reason to prohibit polyga my, to prohibit a man marrying his favorite pet, to prohibit a woman having 12 husbands at once, and so forth ... Tom Barton: Careful what you wish for people ... No matter what the issue, it was voted on and de cided by the people. Now that could be changed by the courts. Are we really okay? Alyssa Nicole Fernandez: People absolutely choose it. And marriage was made for one man and one woman. But I dont think its our governments right to decide who can marry. If it doesnt aect you directly then what is it hurting? You arent preventing anyone from being gay! Lorie Williams: I believe we will all stand before God and we will all answer for the choices we have made, good or bad. We, as individuals, do not have to support what we do not agree with, but as our laws show, majority rules and majority isnt usually on the conservative side of things. Melissa Elaine Haines: Marriage is for a man and a woman. Porsche Alise Mahan: So you all live by Gods word by saying marriage is for man an woman? If you lived by Gods word, you would not judge another! Michelle Vowles: Sexual orientation isnt a choice and anyone who believes it is a choice is igno rant. And this country was founded on principles of religious freedom, not Christianity. Christopher Apromollo: If you arent gay, how can you sit there and say that they choose to be that way? Porsche Alise Mahan: So do you choose to be straight? Pam Clark: All people are cre ated equal in the eyes of God, but a marriage is between a man and woman. Although I do believe anyone should be allowed to have whoever they want on their insurance and medical plans. As a Christian, I still believe what God said. Love your neighbor as your self. Cam Matthew Hayes: We rede ned slavery, and women serving in the military. In fact, we rede ned women in general (boy do I miss those days when I could beat my wifes face in for talking back, and get away with it!). Those, by the way, were federal initiatives that were fought by people de manding it be left to the states. The reason it wasnt left to the states? Because they realized it would cause a division in national policy, and because people must be equally represented in the entirety of the country! I know a few gay people ... there arent a lot of peo ple who would choose being gay, particularly at the age in which that choice is made. Have you ever been to a high school? Nothing screams this is a good idea for my self esteem more than making a choice that ascribes a person to a social status compounded by abuse, ridicule, and hatred. Bonnie Jean Combass: Yes as a Christian, I oppose same-sex marriages, and I believe it to be a sin, however, we are all sinners, and in Gods eyes there is no value on sin, they are all equal. So that rapist, or drunk, or even the gossiper are looked at as equals. For those using religion to express your point of view, instead of attacking, spread the Word on how we should live in Gods eyes, and just pray. We are to love everyone. I couldnt care less if same-sex marriage is allowed. Jeanne Marie Todd: I believe that relations between two people, i.e. marriage, should be just that, between the two people. Government interferes with almost every thing in life. When there are laws concerning who we are and arent allowed to be with then I think laws and government go too far. People have their own religious interpretations and should do what they think is right instead of being told what to do. four years in prison, minus 24 months credit for time served, and 10 years of drug offender probation. Mr. Hewetts uncle, Arthur S. Hewett, 61, was killed when the speeding 2009 Pontiac allegedly driven by the defendant crossed the center line on SR 121 south and collided with the victims Toyota pickup about 6:15 am on February 2, 2009. The crash also took the life of Charles C. Sharp of Jacksonville, who was inside the Pontiac and pronounced dead at the scene along with Arthur Hewett. He made me the Christian man I am today, Robert Hewett said of his uncle, a construction supervisor from Lake Butler. Facing nine counts that included vehicular homicide, DUI, DUI with property damage or injury and careless driving on a suspended license resulting in death or serious injury, Mr. Moody was close to accepting a plea deal last December. Assistant State Attorney Ralph Yazdiya probation with credit for two years he spent in county jail after the wreck and before his Jacksonville attorney, Jesse Dreicer, got his bond reduced from $750,000 to $70,000, which paved the way for his release. Mr. Moody, who records indicate has addresses in both Starke and Orange Park, did not sign the plea agreement and appeared to earlier this month to suppress the results of a toxicology screen of blood taken from the defendant at the scene of the crash and state ments made by his sister, Elizabeth Moody, who died on September 11, 2010. Court records indicate the toxicology screen showed Mr. Moody had the prescription drug alprazolam, also known as Xanax, and THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, in his system at or shortly before the time of the accident. Mr. Dreicer argued in his motion the FlorMr. Moody the implied consent warning before having his blood drawn by rescue personnel. Mr. Moodys sister, who was dropped off at home shortly before the accident, told investigators she believed her brother was driving the vehicle, court records show. She was re portedly in a romantic relationship with Mr. Sharp, one of the victims. Mr. Dreicers motion argued the sisters statement should be excluded because she was not present at the time of the collision and including it would violate Mr. Moodys constitutional right to confront his accusers. Hair recovered from the drivers side of the Pontiac was not a conclusive match to Mr. Moody, but was ruled out as a possible match for Mr. Sharp by the FBI DNA unit, according The report shows Mr. Moody also had injuries to the inside of his forearms consistent with being the driver of the vehicle, which was traveling 85 mph when the crash occurred just south of the state hospital and overturned several times. Mr. Moody allegedly exited the car and called 9-1-1 after the accident. Mr. Sharps body was found on the drivers side of the ve hicle. Judge Moseley, who sentenced another defendant seven days before for DUI manslaughter, reluctantly accepted Mr. Moodys new plea pact. He said the four-year prison term with two years credit was a considerable downward departure from the maximum sentence 30 years the defendant could have gotten if convicted on two counts of vehicular homicide. Should Mr. Moody violate the terms of his 10-year probation, including that he not consume or possess alcohol or drugs, he could face the same maximum penalty. For everyone involved, this has been a cause of the loss of two lives. pickup heading east on US 90 between Olustee and Sanderson about 3:20 am when the truck drifted into the westbound path of a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria driven by 15-year-old Travis D. Suggs of Lake City. Mr. Suggs was killed by what a Florida Highway Patrol described as a slightly offset headon collision that seriously in jured four passengers in the truck and Mr. Hardin. The report from FHP states several empty beer cans and a liquor bottle were found in the bed of the pickup. While interview ing Mr. Hardin at the hospital, an FHP trooper said he detected a moderate odor of alcohol and observed the defendants eyes were glossy and blood shot, and his speech slurred. A laboratory analysis showed that Mr. Hardins blood alcohol level the time of the crash was .107, slightly above the .08 threshold the state considers indicates. The analysis also detected the presence of THC, the active ingredient in pot, in the defendants blood. Toxicology results on the teenage victim, who didnt have a drivers license, showed he was drunk as well with a blood alcohol level of .127 and marijuana in his system. Neither of driver was wearing a seat belt. Assistant State Attorney Ralph Yazdiya said Mr. Suggs parents and three of the four passengers injured in the crash, who were all 18 years old or younger, agreed to the plea deal reached din and his attorney, Justin W. Blow of Live Oak. I feel this is what they all want, he told Judge Moseley prior to sentencing. The deceaseds father, Paul Suggs, gathered himself for a few moments before addressing the court, saying he hopes his sons death will compel others to avoid drinking and driving. This has had big impact on the other kids, he said. This is a terrible thing. Judge Moseley accepted Mr. Hardins no contest plea to DUI manslaughter in return for the 8-year prison term and to four counts of DUI resulting in serious bodily injury in exchange for 15 years of drug offender probation upon his release. He must serve at least four years of the eight-year term. Mr. Hardin received time served for one count of DUI with injury or property damage and the state dropped the only remaining count of DUI. His license was revoked for life and his probation bars him from possessing or consuming alcohol or drugs. Given Mr. Hardins previous DUI case in 2009, Judge Moseley said hes doesnt believe the states current DUI penalties are adequate. You did this once before and you got back behind the wheel again, the judge said to the de fendant before characterizing those who drink and drive as indiscriminate killers. From page 1 From page 1 Cadillacs driver Fate J. Holcy, 64, of Macclenny or his passenger Lawrence D. Phillips, 41, of Jacksonville, were injured. Gary Maurice Hannans, 43, of Jacksonville was a passenger in the semi. Damage to the semi was estimated at $20,000, to the Cadillac $6000 and the Kia $4000. The wreck and cleanup a small amount of diesel fuel was spilled from the semi closed a stretch of U.S. 90 until about 3 pm. Charges are pending further investigation by FHP, which will include whether alcohol contributed to the accident. Everyone involved was wearing seat belts. Jamie Lambert of Macclenny said she was also on the road last her emotions and she was shaking for several hours afterward. This was the worst thing I could have imagined today, she posted to The Press and took my cruise control off thats when I saw the car sitting in the middle of the road with no lights. The smell of gas was overwhelming. When I looked over I saw the log truck and asked if everyone was OK. The drivers were getting out and headed over to the opposite side of the street. I thought all was good, and then they told me there was a vehicle pinned on the other side of the log truck that was completely Ms. Lambert wrote that she will never forget what happened last week and that it will make her a safer driver. God bless the families that lost a loved one, but know that I for one vow right now to be as safe as possible so hopefully this is not me one day, and maybe one less family will have to experience something like this, she said.Judge reluctant on sentence From page 1 Are you kidding me! I jump up off the couch and the bunny on my lap scurries into the corner. I am home alone watching college basketball, fully consumed by March Madness as I am every year at this time. I have just watched Florida Gulf Coast University from Ft. Myers topple mighty Georgetown, a team I picked to go all the way to the Final Four. Its a funny thing about March Madness. Most of the college basketball season I dont watch games. I always manage to find other things to do. I might tune in the teams I support FSU and Baylor and lately the Gators, but other than that I watch soccer as my sport of choice this time of year. March Madness is appealbasketball. Though the title is media generated it probably is a clear indicator of what lies ahead. At some point during the first weekend of games, madness will ensue. CBS commentator Brent Musburger is generally credited for coining the phrase during his coverage of the games in 1982. The NCAA realized what a boon this would be for the tournament and registered the term as a trademark. It is madness indeed every year. Some team or teams will kick off their tennis shoes and don the glass slippers for the Cinderella team of the tournament. In the past that mantle has been draped around the shoulders of Cleveland State, Gonzaga, Norfolk State, Virginia Commonwealth. This year it is wrapped around the Eagles of Florida Gulf Coast and the LaSalle Explorers. FGC is hands down the most exciting team in the tourna ment this year. They are so loose, relaxed and playing with such joy; it is fun to watch. They will take on the Florida Gators this weekend. It sort of the Daniels match up against the Goliaths. There are still plenty of Goliaths left, but Davids slingshot has knocked a few out. #1 seed Gonzaga went down to Wichita State, #2 Georgetown lost to FGC and #12 seed Oregon beat #4 St. Louis. These little versus big upsets are what I love about March Madness and what makes it madness. Ive often tried to rationalize it. We Americans seem to love underdogs and so, even though I was a Georgetown fan and knew nothing at all about FGC, their story and the way they played appealed to me and I found myself cheering them on. After all, Georgetown has some of the top players in the country. Their whole starting lineup is made up of 5-star recruits, whereas most of the Eagles lineup are players that nobody recruited except FGC. Eagles stars Sherwood Brown and Brett Comer were recruited by absolutely no one. So, although I am a Gator fan, it will be hard not to cheer for these guys this weekend. Fans of a playoff system in football often point to March Madness as the reason that a playoff is so appealing. Wouldnt it be great to have this kind of unpredictably in college football? Sure it would, although I dont think it would translate as well. There are plenty of great college basketball players who escape notice by the big schools. Its harder in football and the rich just get richer. Occasionally, an Appalachian State will beat a Michigan in football, but usually the cream rises to the top. The same is true with in college basketball. It takes a couple of rounds, but Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Michigan, Louisville and Syracuse are there at the end. You may occasionally see a VCU or Baylor or Jacksonville break the mold, but its hard to maintain that level of excellence when you come up against the big boys. Its the early rounds that are exciting as teams no one has ever heard of shock a #1 or 2 seed because theyve never heard of them either. Will FGC get past the Gators to the Elite Eight? Possible but doubtful. The only thing in its favor is that Florida is not playing particularly well despite a pair of double digit wins. Will LaSalle beat Wichita? Could be, either team is a dark horse. I will keep watching just to see what happens. Thats why its March Madness.

From now on, the county com mission agenda will include a new section created for the review of pending business matters that the board has asked to be kept updated on by County Manager C.J. Thompson. The new procedure was recommended by Commissioner James Croft and unanimously adopted near the end of the March 19 board meeting after Mr. the county manager as well as the county commission. Sometimes in the carrying out of (county) business, and Im not saying its intentional, we just all get busy and sometimes things can slip through the cracks ..., Mr. Croft said. One thing that slipped out of sight recently was a January 22 memorandum from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which asked for written comments, pro or con, concerning sand mining applicant E.R. Jahna Industries Inc. to be returned to DEPs Mining and lahassee within 30 days. At a board meeting on March 5 commissioners asked why they had not heard about the memo, which listed County Manager C.J. Thompson as one of the e-mail recipients, until it was too late to respond. The county manager insisted that he knew nothing about it until March 4 when Commissioner Adam Giddens called to ask him about it. Mr. Thompson said he discovered that someone at the DEP ing his e-mail address and he never received the memo directly from DEP. Otherwise, he said, he would have certainly shared it with the board. In a memo to each commissioner on March 14, after The Press requested any recent corre spondence pertaining to the mining applications, the county manager offered a further explanation for the mishap. I feel it is appropriate to share with you more information that I have discovered since our meeting regarding this memo and my failure to share it with you, Mr. Thompson said. I maintain 100 percent that I was not included on the original email on 1/22/13 and was not aware of the memo and its contents until my conversation with Commissioner Giddens on 3/5/13. However, after a review of e-mails yesterday that were the subject of a public records request [made by resident Sharon Padgett], I discovered that I did have an opportunity to be aware of the e-mail between its origination date and the 3/5 conversation with Commissioner Gid dens. The county managers memo included a list of e-mail addresses the DEP memo was sent to, including the one that was addressed to him at 4 pm on January 22 but which he said he never received because it read cjthompson rather than cj. thompson. The next e-mail on the list was addressed to County Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston, who forwarded it to his secretary Patricia Bass, and asked her Bass also forwarded the e-mail to Assistant County Attorney Will Sexton. The county managers e-mail trail shows that on February 27 Mr. Preston sent the e-mail to Commissioner Croft at his request and a copy to Mr. Thomp son, which the manager said was aware of the memo and I simply failed to review the attachment. On March 4, Mr. Thompson said, he forwarded the public re cords request from Joel Addington, The Press managing editor, to Mr. Preston and asked him to forward any correspondence he had received. Mr. Thompson noted that if he had been aware of the DEP memo at this time he would not have needed to ask Ed to send it to Joel. The last item on the list was dated March 4, at 11:16 am. It was an e-mail from Mr. Preston to Mr. Addington containing the DEP memo with a copy sent to Mr. Thompson, which he acknowledged was the second opportunity where I could have become aware of the memo and its contents. I apologize for the oversight which was ultimately my mistake, Mr. Thompson said in his memo to commissioners. The purpose of this e-mail is not to make excuses but to provide you with all of the information you may need should this continue to be an issue. Its always been my goal not to cast an unfavorable light on the board but yesterdays front page headline of The Baker County Press (Mystery memo went unnoticed) did just that. Though unintentional, my actions (or inaction in this case) has caused the board to face additional public scrutiny and for that I am truly sorry for letting you down. The new procedure for stay ing on top of pending issues calls missioners requesting specific actions for the administration to take in regards to particular situaction or interim reports. A copy of each form for un completed tasks would be provided as part of the board pack et, Mr. Croft said in his proposal. This would provide a reminder to commissioners and staff of the uncompleted actions and an update of ongoing actions toward the completion. A similar policy was employed when he was a commissioner during the 1980s, Mr. Croft said, and it helped board members stay on top of any business still pending before the board. The forms also could be useful to the county manager to remind his staff what needs to be done and maybe (put) a time frame on it, he said. Mr. Thompson said he liked the concept and agreed it could be mutually advantageous, if for no other reason than it would solidify what the boards requests are. But he said requests need to be explicit to avoid misunderstandings. There are times, he said, when one board member will request something thats slightly different than another board member and it gets a little confusing about who wants what. This could alleviate confusion in the future if you guys, as a board, would come to an agreement on what the request is. Be explicit. Itll allow all of us to be more successful. Mr. Croft agreed, stating that sometimes we do kind of leave staff in the dark as to what were really asking for.

Instead, she said, parents with children in private schools are requesting that their students be given FCAT exams. We dont have parents opting out. We have parents wanting to opt in, said Ms. Voorhees, adding that next year state law will require districts to administer FCAT testing to private school students who express interest. Today districts can deny such requests. I mpacts for students who opt-out Ms. Voohrees agreed that state statutes allow students to opt-out of standardized testing without a penalty. But the system is set up to encourage participation and discourage boycotting of state exams. Ms. Voorhees said schools are required by law to administer the tests to every student in the classroom by placing a test form in front of them. She said its up to the student whether he or she completes all, some or none of the test. Beyond the statement in the student progression plan that each student must participate in the test, she said the district has no policy regarding students who decide to optout. Theres no alternative activities made available for students and parents are not nohees said thats because the expectation is that all students will take the test. Theres no plan for students who politely opt out to do activities when the test is be ing administered to everyone else, said Ms. Voorhees. Well respect that decision, but there would be no plan for an alternative if the expectation is to participate. If a student is sick or theres another emergency on testing days, students are expected to take makeup tests at a later date. With no formal policy in place for students who decline to take the test, Mr. Voorhees said test administrators and school principals would be in charge of what happens in those instances. She said the student would likely be asked to sit quietly if some gentle encouraging by the test administrator did not convince the student to take the test. Thats all they could do, she said. And the administrator would let somebody know, then it would be under further review to see what the state wants us to do. While students and parents can decide against taking standardized tests, either by abstaining from taking the test or staying home on testing and retesting days, students must still demonstrate theyre progressing academically. Students must prove they are reading, writing and doing math at grade level to be promoted. FCAT test results are used by teachers and schools to determine the annual academic performance of students. Children who struggle on the tests are referred to remedial tutoring and specialized instruction to help them catch up, while those excelling are referred to higher-level instruction. If students opt-out of FCAT testing, their grades and class work, or alternative test re sults, must be substituted for FCAT scores. In addition, when FCAT results are not available, a students teacher, principal and the districts superintendent must all agree the childs portfolio of school work is good enough for the child to move onto the next grade. Its very academically rigorous, Mr. Voorhees said of the standards when using a portfolio to evaluate students for promotion from the third to fourth grade. Its usually the hardest route, but it is allowed, she said. High school students are supposed to achieve minimum FCAT reading and math scores before theyre eligible for graduation. However, results on college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT as well as other state-approved testing instruments can be substituted for FCAT scores to meet graduation requirements. Alternatives to the traditional testing re gime can be challenging for the district, too. The current system of high-stakes testing has been in place for more than a decade, since federal No Child Left Behind legislation passed under the Bush administration in 2001. As such, its intertwined with nearly every aspect of public education. If theres no test scores, theres a lack of data to make good, sound education decisions, said Ms. Voorhees. She said students who are struggling academically may score high enough on the tests to be promoted with close monitoring and tutoring in the future. students could be held back, she said. Opting out would create a challenging sitthrough the school system, said Ms. Voorhees, adding that the process could be more different. Could schools lose money? School funding is allocated by the state legislature each year largely based on the number of students enrolled in each district. However, education reforms at the state level in recent years have tied teacher compensation, as well as the pay of principals and district administrators, more closely to student test results. Teachers hired after July 1, 2014 will be placed into the new performance pay system, in which 50 percent of a teachers performance evaluation is based on standardized test results. Furthermore, school grades are issued by the state annually based mostly on testing outcomes. Schools who achieve an A-grade or show improvement of two or more letter grades are eligible for school recognition dollars. After the high school jumped from a Dschool to an B-school in 2011, teachers there received bonuses of about $900, Principal Tom Hill said. Another measure used to determine school grades is participation in standardized tests. That means a large drop in test participation can negatively impact a schools grade and thus the potential for teacher bonuses from the state. S chool board hesitant to issue policy At least one school board member, Jesse Davis, said he believes parents and students should decide whether standardized testing is right for them. I am not in favor of the FCAT, he said. It has hindered the ability of our teachers to teach every child based on their own personal talents and learning ability. While standardmeasurement purposes, the high stakes that have been tied to the FCAT have caused more harm than good for our children, teachers and the entire Florida education system in my humble opinion. Mr. Davis said the school board should have a policy regarding opting out of the FCAT, but he would be cautious of any policy that mandates either opting in or encourages opting out. The best chance for change will come by lobbying the lawmakers in Tallahassee, he said. Everyone in a community has a stake in the education system and it would be in everyones interest to make as much noise as possible in Tallahassee. The school boards Artie Burnett said he didnt know enough about state laws and FCAT testing to comment on the need for a formal policy regarding opting out. I understand this is a complex subject matter that has minds much greater than mine perplexed at times, he said. I trust that the FDOE [Florida Department of Educaguidelines and procedures in place to enable school districts to manage this and other issues that may arise as we all work to give our children the best education we can. no policy is needed because parents arent clamoring for one. Theres been no interest expressed in that, he said. If that changes, well have to address it. Board member Dwight Crews did not return a call for comment on the lack of a formal opt-out policy.FCAT: yes, you can opt out eres no plan for students who politely opt out to do activities when the test is being administered to everyone else. Well respect that decision, but there would be no plan for an alternative if the expectation is to participate.Susan VoorheesBaker County School Director of Accountability The Glen St. Mary Town Council earlier this month adopted a change in its land use map to pave the way for re-zoning of just under one acre to accommodate the placement of a Vystar Credit Union ATM then adopted the alteration that allows for both the re-zoning and a reduction in the setback distance from the US 90 right-of-way from 25 to 10 feet. The ATM will be located in the southeast corner of the property bordered by Stoddard and Lincoln Aves. Meanwhile, the town signed a letter of intent committing to paving and utilities at the ATM site. The council last month set a $15,000 cap on those costs, which are being treated as up-front lease payments.

ursday, March 28, 2013 T B C P Page 7 Page 6 T B C P ursday, March 28, 2013A Macclenny man is believed responsible for a rash of copper thefts from central air conditioning units at commercial locations in the core city area dating back to January. Edward Charles Stewart, 57, said to be homeless, admitted during an interview with a sheriffs investi gator on March 24 that he has been stripping the units of copper and re-selling it through in termediaries. In all, Mr. Stewart is charged with vandalizing 24 units at eight locations since midJanuary. Investigator Rodney Driggers said he got a break in the case after he examined copper tubing that Valorie Myers, 28, of Macclenny sold at American Recycling on March 15 for $82. The investigator said the ends appeared to have been bent in stead of severed, and the tubes had traces of paint that matched some of the buildings where units were plundered. Ms. Myers admitted she received the copper from Mr. Stewart, and told the investigator he steals it to support a crack cocaine habit. Lori Royal, 41, of Glen St. Mary, the suspects longtime girlfriend, was also interviewed and said she was aware of his activity but declined to participate when asked. Mr. Stewart apparently moved from site to site uptown and toted stolen materials in a shop ping cart. He also sold copper to Har old Moore, 45, and Ike Tisdale, 66, both of Macclenny. The latter told the investigator he broke off ties with Mr. Stewart when he learned the copper was stolen. Neither man was charged, nor was Ms. Myers. Investigator Driggers assem bled the female witnesses and Mr. Stewart for a joint interview on March 24 and said the suspect that occurred during night hours. The largest haul came from the strip shopping center once known as Park West at US 90 and Lowder, where 10 of 11 air conditioners were stripped overnight on March 16. The property is owned by Valerie Hick man. Others include: the Crockett Building owned by Ed Barber and another behind a building owned by Jack Baker and Moody Lee downtown between January 16-18; property on South 6th, and three units behind Family Dollar on US 90, both overnight on January 29; Dr. Mary Futch on South 6th overnight on February 6; ily Dollar and two behind Sports Shak nearby on US 90 between March 14-16; night on March 17.

Drop Offs WelcomeFREE E-FILING JOEL ADDINGT ON N E WS EDIT OR firstname.lastname@example.orgBudget cuts triggered by sequestration to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) led to the release of more than 2200 immigration detainees in February, including an unknown number from the Baker County jail that routinely houses more than 200 such prisoners. News of the detainee releases led County Commissioner James Croft last week to request monthly reports on the number of ICE detainees housed at the facility from the Baker Correctional Development Corporation (BCDC), I know youve been following the news that our [Department of] Homeland Security [Secre tary] Ms. [Janet] Napolitano is talking about releasing federal inmates and ICE inmates left and right, Mr. Croft told fellow commissioners during the boards March 19 meeting. I think it would interesting to know if something like thats happening to us, he said. I havent heard of us losing any inmates at this point, but if we do, it would send up a signal to we may have to deal with at some point in the future. Mr. Croft was alluding to the BCDCs largest source of rev enue money from the federal government for housing ICE in mates and the potential for county. Technically, the county and BCDC operate independent of each other. However, the sheriffs ment, is paid to manage the jail by BCDC; and the county pays BCDC to house local inmates, which typically number between 100-130. With the countys blessing, BCDC borrowed more than $32 million in 2008 to build the jail by issuing $45 million in taxfree bonds to be repaid through 2030, and the bond documents reference the county. The county is barred from ever using property taxes to repay the bonds, but a clause in the documents states the county will make its best efforts to ensure timely repayment should BCDC default on the debt. Billions of dollars in automatic spending cuts to defense and other federal programs that began March 1 are the result of a congressional budget deal reached last year known as sequestration. The cuts are expected to work their way through the economy in the coming months unless Congress acts. The threat of further cuts to ICE and more detainee releases is whats troubling Commission er Croft. The county has been getting monthly reports on coun ty inmates, which are used for billing purposes, but not on ICE or other federal detainees. The jail houses prisoners from the U.S. Marshals Service and the federal Bureau of Prisons, though in much smaller numbers than ICE inmates. ICE spokesperson Carissa Cutrell in Tampa said she could not provide the actual number of detainees released from the county jail. I only have numbers broken Florida, released 225 individuals from Florida detention facilities for budget reasons. ida for detention of illegal immigrants. Ms. Cutrell said she wasnt aware of a second round of releases, but that doesnt mean anything. John Finley, the corrections bureau chief for the sheriffs office, declined to comment on how many ICE prisoners were released recently. They like to speak with one voice, he said of the federal agency. Still, its clear a decrease in ICE detainees occurred last month, when the average daily population of immigration prisoners fell from 246 in January to 223 in February. The average decrease of 23 detainees is equal to nearly $60,000 in lost revenue for BCDC. we have been impacted by the federal loss at this point, and if so, if theres anything on the horizon, said Mr. Croft. We need all the information we can have decisions in the future. February also saw an increase in the average number of county inmates, from 113 in January to 130 the next month. The jump will cost the county about $43,000 but also help offset BCDCs loss of federal prisoners. The difference is the county picks up the $85 daily cost per local inmate. The average population from the Marshals Service dropped by eight prisoners and from the Bureau of Prisons by one. ported that hundreds of lowlevel, non-violent ICE detainees were released in February ahead of $300 million in sequestration cuts to the agency. ICE director John Morton latcommittee hearing, following pressure from House Republicans, that 2228 inmates were let go, including 629 who were convicted criminals awaiting deportation. The director stood by previous statements that none of those re leased were convicted of violent crimes.ICE inmate decreasePlot to defraud Vystar An off-duty sheriffs investigator stopped a Glen St. Mary motorist driving recklessly on two south Macclenny streets the evening of March 24.

Mickie Albino, 40, of Glen St. Mary was allegedly checks from her former account to Tessa Spaulding, The two suspects live at the same address on Confederate Dr. Deputy Chis Volz said the checks were used to open an account for Kyle Raulerson, 22, of Glen, who then drew out cash in $100 increments.

Health educators with more than 40 years of combined public health experience respond to questions within 24 hours. Question topics that may be submitted to the text line include sexually transmitted diseases, HIV, sex, relationships and contraception. Teens can ask followup questions and receive refer rals to local resources. The service is provided through a public-private partnership between the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign of North Carolina (APPCNC) and Houston-based OneSeventeen Media. It originally launched in North Carolina in 2009 and has since expanded to South Carolina, Texas, Maryland and now Florida. best practice by the Northeast Florida Teen Pregnancy Task Force. Bringing a similar text message program to the region was an implementation strategy in the task forces Community Action Plan. The Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition launched the local program in January through a Competitive Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) grant from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Administration for Children and Families.

ursday, March 28, 2013 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, March 28, 2013 BOB GERARD | STAFF I am Oz, the great and powerful. It actually should be I am Oz, the computer generated. Oz, the Great and Power ful, is the prequel to the classic The Wizard of Oz. James Franco plays Oz, a small time Kan sas magician who is transported over the rainbow to the magical land of Oz yeah, theyve got the You know the story if youve seen The Wizard of Oz. Francos Oz is a con man whose womanizing causes him to run for his life and jump into a hot air balloon. The balloon is swept up by a tornado to the Land of Oz. Like the original, the first part of the movie is in black and white. But when Franco crash lands in Oz, the movie comes to life in full color. And colorful it is. Using all the remarkable CGI skills at their disposal, Disney has created a world to rival Avatar, a $200 million wonder of computer generIt is a riot of color and takes a few moments to get used to. Thats kind of my take on the whole movie it takes some getting used to. In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy Gale was an innocent re leased into a broken land ruled by witches. In Oz, James Franco is a con man released into an innocent land on its way to being ruled by witches. In fact, the first person he meets is the beautiful witch of the West, Theodora (Mila Kunis). Dressed in a red jacket and black leather pants with a big a clue that theres something a little off about this girl. For one thing, she is a witch. She is an innocent, about to be corrupted by the womanizing Oz. To Theodora, who falls hopelessly in love with the man, the future is mapped out; he is the prophesied wizard who will free them from an evil witch. She will be his queen. Oz isnt interested in being the all powerful wizard until she reveals that the job comes with a bunch of gold. An evil witch is plaguing the Emerald City, and no one knows her identity. The wizards job will be to stamp her out by destroying her wand. On arriving in the city he is greeted with great fanfare and shown the treasury full of gold. He is also introduced to Evanora (Rachel Weisz), Theodoras sister. She is dressed all in green and is cool, aloof and beautiful. She too is anxious for the wizwhere she is located in the dark forest. To get the gold, he agrees and the story kicks into high gear. Along the way, he saves a monkey named Finley (Zach Braff) and a little doll he calls China Girl (Joey King). Her family has been killed and her legs broken off. Oz Like the original, these char acters harken back to his Kansas days. Finley is played by the same actor who played his put-upon assistant in Kansas and the broken doll by the actress who was in a wheel chair and asked the magician to be healed and allow her to walk. In Kansas he couldnt help her, in Oz he can. When he reaches the dark forest, he discovers all is not as it seems. The supposedly evil witch is actually Glinda the Good (Michelle Williams), who harkens back to his childhood girlfriend, Anna from Kansas. Anna was going to be married to a farmer named Gale Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz would be her child. Wheels within wheels. We quickly discover that Evanora is the real witch and twists her sister Theodora into becoming the Wicked Witch of the West. Glinda convinces the wizard to become a real Wizard of Oz and battle the pair. The film, directed by Sam Raimi, has a lot going for it, but Studios it also is flawed by a script that is too bland. The story is too pat, rather than examining the characters involved. It doesnt take long until it really starts being about the special effects. There are plenty of them. They are beautiful to watch and certainly worlds away from the 1939 original. But watching what Disney can achieve with a $200 million budget just kept making me more and more amazed what MGM did with much less. Compared to the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion the characters from Oz are shallow and unmemorable. Even Francos Oz doesnt have the kind of warmth and humor that draws us to him. Only Oscar winner Williams is able to make her Glinda three dimensional. Its rated PG. I give it 3 out of 4 stars. IN THE CIRCUIT COURT, EIGHTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND FOR BAKER COUNTY, FLORIDA.

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.

That day left a hole both in our hearts as well as our soul, and living each day without you has taken its toll. We think of you from the end of one day till the next one starts; theres not a moment that goes by that youre not in our hearts. You soothed our troubles and wiped away countless tears. Your loving arms chased away both our failures and our fears. On that day you said to us, Steady yourselves and dont make a fuss. You said you were going home to see the King of Kings, and that you had no further use of these worldly things. Today we take comfort that youre where you wanted to be, looking upon the face you always longed to see. Walking hand in hand with the One who died on the cross, knowing you are happy and content we deal easier with our loss. So Granny, save all your stories of the Lord we trust, and we will join you over there where you can share them with us.

On March 19 the Wildcats beat the visiting Fernandina Beach Pirates 2-1. Freshmen Dylan Hall picked up the win, throwing 3.2 innings and giving up only one run. Jacob Milton pitched 2.1 scoreless innings in relief and Hunter Hanks picked up the save with a scoreless seventh inning. Jared Crews led the offense with a pair of hits and Ethan Wilkerson added an RBI double. We didnt swing the bats very well that night; maybe we were looking ahead to Fridays game, said Coach Fred Matricardi. On March 22 the Cats hosted Bishop Kenny to determine the number one seed in the district tournament and handled the Crusaders 8-2 in what Matricardi called our best game of the season. Hunter Hanks pitched 6.1 innings to pick up the win. He gave up six hits and had nine strikeouts. Hunter pitched very well and shut down a very good hitting team, said Matricardi. He has done that all year for us. Hanks also led the offense, going 3-4 with two RBIs. Ethan Wilkerson added two hits and an RBI. Mikal Flores added two key push bunts that brought in two RBIs. That has been the difference in this team this year, said Matricardi. Our guys have been team guys and are willing to do anything really bought into the team concept. Ethan Wilkerson is leading the Wildcats with a .450 batting average with 11 RBIs and a pair of home runs. Jacob Milton is hitting a .432 and has a 3-0 record on the mound. Hunter Hanks has been the key man in the Wildcats pitching success and at the plate. He is hitting .381 with 12 RBIs and is 6-0 on the mound with a save. Freshmen Dylan Hall is hitting .333 with seven RBIs. He is doing a great job for a freshman on a very good team. He hasnt played like a freshman. The Wildcats travel to Fernandina Beach on Thursday, March 28 to play in the Pirates Diamond Classic.
