COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF The Baker County school district is beginning the 2013cit that would take nearly $1.3 million in cash reserves to balance the ledger. If thats the route taken, it follows a similar amount pulled from emergency savings last year to fund a budget gap. The cause of the shortfall is a drop in state education funding attributed mostly to a decline in student enrollment. declining enrollment, Marcelle Richardson, the school districts chief budget officer, told the school board during a budget workshop on June 3. The number of full time equivalent students in kindergarten through 12th grade grew from 4,942.26 in 2008-09 to 4,967.85 in 2009-10. But during the next three years the numbers dropped steadily from 4,954.78 in 2010-11, 4,878.74 in 2011-12 and 4,814.63 this year. The estimated $1,294,000 that may be needed from reserves to offset the anticipated drop in revenue, Mrs. Richardson said, could go up or it could go down in the next few the new spending plan in late September. liminary, based on estimates of tive projections will be available after the school system gets its bers from the state and the Baker County property appraiser how much local governments and the school district will receive from county taxpayers. But the end result is going said, which means money must be shifted from reserves to the general fund to bring income in line with expenditures or cuts will have to made somewhere. The fund balance, or amount of money in reserve carried forup for the lost revenue. Mrs. Richardson said it is projected to be about $6,556,000 when the current budget expires on September 30, which is a 16.5 percent reduction from last year. The less-than-sunny fiscal forecast was partly blamed on a state education funding mechanism that officials say shortchanges poorer counties like Baker. We are one of the lowest funded, based on our property values, of any district statewide, Mrs. Richardson told the school board. Out of 67 counties, our district was second from the bottom in new (state) dollars.

After much discussion, changes to its proposal and a few false starts in the local planning process, one of the companies, Oldcastle Southern Group of Tampa, is ready to move forward. the state and this week sealed a deal with the City of Macclenny to accept its treated wastewater stream and avoid pumping water from the aquifer, which concerned local residents who mounted a campaign to oppose the projects last year. Oldcastle intends to mine course sands using a hydraulic dredging technique similar to that used by DuPont to extract minerals in the southeastern portion of the county. In fact, Oldcastle will be mining It appears that your project will have minimal adverse environmental impacts, states the environmental resource permit issued by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The other company seeking to mine sand here is Lake Wales-based mental regulators. The special exception sought by both companies from the county requires as a condition of approval that they obtain all the necessary permits from outside regulators. Oldcastle is scheduled for a hearing on its special exception application before the Land Planning Agency on June 27 at 7 pm. The LPA, which meets in the county commission chambers at 55 N. 3rd St. in Macclenny, will make a recommendation on the application for the The commission is set to consider granting the exception on July 16 at 6 pm.

When contacted, Mr. Thomas, who joined BCCS in 2006 following a stint as an assistant to the clerk of courts, denied any ment on the sexual allegations. small amount of local and state money going to it and it was all spent right, said Mr. Thomas. There was no money spent out of that company that wasnt spent accordingly or was stolen. None of that stuff ever hap pened. The former director said checks issued by BCCS required two signatures his and the chair Joe Ruise. Mr. Thomas said he did not seek prior approval for checks under $5000. For amounts more than that, he said he obtained permission from Mr. Ruise before countant, Lyons & Lyons of Macclenny, on a monthly basis. from clients, who were court ordered into drug addiction or other counseling and community service work, all managed by BCCS. But prior to the board of directors abrupt closing of BCCS on April 17, the group never sought an audit of its books, according to former employees. They say Mr. Thomas had control over the corporations money and received little oversight from his superiors. Serving on the board in addition to the chairman, Mr. Ruise, were Sheriff Joey Dobson, court administrator Regina Berger and Property Appraiser Tim Sweat. It was only after board members heard about the allegations of misconduct that they tasked Lyons & Lyons with performing an audit. That review is ongoing and State Attor ney Bill Cervone has requested Sheriff Dobson forward him the audit report upon completion. Audits were avoided in the past, Mr. Thomas contends, because their roughly rations with larger budgets than BCCS are required by law to have annual audits. We had a little bit of money and I paid the checks out the best way I knew how to run the business and everything else I dont know about, said Mr. Thomas.

I also wondered from time to time whether such a thing was real. Wonder no more. One of the more startling stories I read last week has to do with the NSA having an agreement with Verizon Wire less to track their customer calls on cell phones. A whistle blower within the NSA claims the agency can chart who you call, how long you talk to them and all your other actions. Hmm no thats not the least bit troubling. Did you detect the sar casm there? The fact that the government has been slowly chipping away at the 4th Amendment to the Constitution since 2001 in the name of security is very worrying. The NSA would argue if we are innocent of any terrorist activities then we have nothing to worry about. But its a simple step from this to our right to privacy becoming an illusion of privacy in the name of perceived safety from terrorists. Be careful what you wish for. But, this is a humor column, so your favorite investigative journalist has been contacting some folks in the Verizon front office with some questions about my cell phone service. They suggest that I check the Frequently Asked Questions, so I did. Question #1. Will the use of NSA satellites to constantly monitor my cell phone service help or hinder my cell service? Answer Not to worry. The NSA has assured Verizon that our already spotty cell phone coverage will not be interrupted. The already lousy customer service and coverage that you have come to expect will remain the same. Question #2. When my son is called out at home during his Little League baseball game and I tweet my cousin Vern that I am going to kill the umpire, will I be in danger of being sent to Guantanamo Bay? Answer Heavens no. Verizon reserves the right to only send customers who complain about their cell phone service to Guantanamo Bay. Question #3. If I take a picture of my cat Luther with a dish towel wrapped around his head and then post it to my Facebook page, am I in danger of being labeled a member of the Taliban by the NSA? Answer Probably not. We at Verizon are used to our customers posting millions of ri diculous pictures of their cats, dogs and children to the Internet. Believe me, we love a good dog riding a skateboard video as much as anyone else. Just dont let the puppy park that skateboard next to a public building. Question #4. If I add a phone to my account will it be added to NSA scrutiny? Answer Of course. Whenever you add a phone it will automatically be added to the NSA database and you can be assured that you will be watched even more closely than before. Question #5. Will I be charged extra for this service? Answer No. As an agency of the US government, the NSA is already lavishly funded by your tax dollars. Not to worry, your Verizon bill will continue to be crystal clear and as easy to understand as the IRS tax code and the new federal health insurance policies. Question #6. If I have questions or concerns about my NSA surveillance, do I contact Verizon? Answer No, contact the NSA website. They will provide you with an 800 number that you can call on your Verizon phone. That way, you can be certain your call is being monitored. Follow the easy to understand prompts Dial 1 for English, Dial 2 for Spanish, Dial 3 for Search and Seizures, Dial 4 for Unintended Drone Strikes, Dial 5 for complaints regard ing Seal Team 6 forced entry of your home or business. Question 7. I have noticed unusual clicks and buzzes dur ing my cell phone calls. Is this to be expected? Answer Absolutely. Thats probably just some low lev el NSA staffer listening in on your calls to your boyfriend. We would just suggest that you be careful about what you say and those pictures of yourself dressed in that Alice in Wonderland costume youve been sending him. Question 8. Should I be worried about the safety of my online transactions on Verizon? Answer Not at all. If the NSA wanted to steal money out of your bank account they would do it the way its been done for the last 100 years through the IRS. So there you have it. I hope I have put all your fears to rest regarding the partnership between Verizon and the National Security Agency. NSA data mining leak ...Whats your take on the national debate about security and privacy, which was sparked by leaked documents about the NSAs domestic data mining programs? Jerome Reimer Sr.: I agree we are heading down a very rough road. If the public does not wake up and holler stop, we will be loosing some more of our freedom. Wake up America and become involved! Clayton Yarbrough: The more big brother can get into our business the better they like it. I prefer that they stay out of mine as much as possible. Ive made it this far without a big brother so I dont need one now and for sure one that has complete control of my life. The more they know about you the more they can control you,your life and your future. Danny Norton: This is basically how Castro took over Cuba, government agencies watching over citizens. Castro even got neighbors to watch neighbors and report to the authorities. Ethan H. Klenk: They say its to help prevent terrorism. Boston still hap pened, so its obviously not working. Its unconstitutional and the fact that it would be a crime for any of the companies involved to admit they knew anything is outrageous. Its been assumed that theyve been doing this, regardless, its a sad day for America. Theresa Rhoden: This isnt a Re publican or Democrat issue. The 4th amendment that is supposed to protect us from unlawful search and seizure is being violated. This eects everyone! Does the government have the right to know who you call? No. The right to access FB posts? No. What you had to say ...LETTER TO THE EDITOR IMPRESS I ONSJim McG auley Got comments, complaints, suggestions, story ideasAs simple as an e-mailIf you have any information you think we need to know, send it to: editor@bakercountypress.com THE BAKER COUN T Y PRESS 104 South 5th St. 904-259-2400 MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD is P r o ud t o S ponsor K eep Bak er B ea utiful!

The land is zoned agriculture, a category that only permits mining with an approved special exception from the county. The county granted DuPont a mining exception for the tract back in 2009, but the issue was much less controversial at that time. The company has been mining in the area for decades. But since Oldcastle will be operating the sand mine, it needs the exception as well. Oldcastles latest exception application repeatedly notes the previous DuPont approval. It also states the City of Macclenny will be supplying the water for the lakes on which the dredge will float. There will also be a septic system for wastewater and bottled water for potable use. The application argues that the countys comprehensive plan, which governs land development county wide, favors the extraction of mineral resources and ing operation will be minimal. port that assertion shows there are some nine peak hour trips on the segment of SR 228 south of the interstate today and the mine is expected to generate nearly 1000 trips per day, the majority, about 600 or more, from 6 to 10 am.Zip line park proposedTwo vocal opponents of the sand mining plans have been Mark and Allison Broughton, who last year purchased some 108 acres across from Northeast Florida State Hospital on SR 121. Mr. Broughton said this week he abandoned his original plan to develop a water park at the location in favor of a much less expensive zip line park. He said the water park would have necessitated outside investors and much less capital is required for the alternative. But to make the project a reality, the Broughtons need a variance to the countys 40-foot height limitation and new zoning for the tract. The property, currently zoned planned unit development, would be separated into two zonapplication shows. The 20-acre park site would be designated recreational and the remainder, about 88 acres, would convert to agriculture. The zip line platforms will range in height from 68 feet to 25 feet and the lines themselves measure between 800 feet and 75 feet long, according to the application. The various zip lines, both single and twin lines, would be connected by bridges and netting. The park is expected to draw more than 19,000 visitors annually, the application notes. mized since we will have prescheduled journey times, the document reads. Guests who show up without a journey time will be grouped with those already scheduled. The zip line park application is scheduled for hearings before the LPA on June 27 at 7 pm and before county commissioners on July 16 at 6 pm.

One of the biggest single revenue losses $596,828 comes from a critical operating tax levy that was enacted four years ago but expires this year. Declining enrollment and the (expired tax levy) really kicked us, Mrs. Richardson said. The school district also is facing a money crunch because of new obligations the state previously assumed but is now passing on to the districts, like tuition expenses for high school students also are enrolled at Florida Gateway College. We have to start paying for dual enrollment courses, Mrs. Richardson said. According to figures she provided the school board, the estimated cost to the school district could be nearly $68,000 for dual-enrolled students both those taking online courses and those who actually attend classes at the college in Lake City. In addition, Florida Gateway College paid $36,810 for teachers who instructed college classes on the high school campus this year, but will no longer provide that funding. That means the total loss to the school district will be $104,543. so that students can continue to work toward an associate degree while also completing their high school requirements. One bright spot in the budget forecast last week was a $821,798 appropriation in new state funding, which includes $801,446 earmarked for increased instructional salaries. Is that $801,000 going to be recurring money Mrs. Richardson. They say it will be, she responded. The money will fund about $2,000 more each year ($500 less than Gov. Rick Scott called for this year) for teachers, guidance counselors, media spe cialists and school administrators, Mrs. Richardson said, adding that the appropriation did not include money for non-instructional personnel or district administrators and staff. Those salaries will be negotiated in upcoming employee bargaining sessions. School Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson is scheduled to present her tentative budget proposal following a budget workshop at 4 pm. Both meetings are open to the public. The tentative budget and proposed school district tax rate will be the subject of a public hearing at 5:15 pm on July 29. Final adoption of the new budget is ginning October 1. F rom page 1 F rom page 1Oldcastle project is back...Zip line park drawing.File this column away in the Dya ever notice? folder. Ive been writing, and many of you have been reading, what the business used to call the police blotter for more years than, well, more years than many of you readers have been alive. Hometown crime has evolved somewhat over those decades. Now if you beat your wife, it isnt your business anymore. Illegal substances people are caught with have transformed from moonshine to methamphetamine. In fact, Ive seen more moonshine at Christmas parties than I ever saw seized by the authorities. One constant remains and it has to do with what well term lack of foresight when it comes to stupid things law breakers do to get themselves caught. Helping police do their job, if you will. In times past, you could get caught being careless in what you told other people verbally (in person). The modern day version involves social media: if you commit a crime, dont brag about it on Facebook like those geniuses in Columbia County recently. They led game officers right to the turkeys and alliga tor they illegally shot. Around here, Dya ever notice how many arrests for drug possession result from a police stop? Put another way, if you had a license with 10 expirations, a warrant for failure to appear in court and a stash of illegal pre scription pills in your vehicle, would you drive around Sanderson after dusk with a headlight out? Or would you think to check that light on your license tag? Or would you make sure your license tag is current? Or would you make sure youre wearing a seat belt? You might. When the debate over profiling began a few years back, it was sparked by courts overturning convictions and throwing out cases because police stopped ve hicles on the interstate with Hispanic or black occupants and no probable cause. Long before that, I always wondered why people with drugs in the car zoomed down Interstate 10 at 90 mph. Why would someone wanted in Colorado for four felonies think its wise to weave in and out of traf fic at high speed? A shrewd drug dealer would hire somebodys grandmother, tell her those bundles in the trunk are destined for or phans in a Third World country and send her on her way from Miami to Newark in a 1997 Oldsmobile staying 10 miles below the speed limit. So what if it takes her four days to get there? Just tell her shes on a goodwill mission and the orphans will pray for her. With ever-widening use of surveillance cameras, perpetrators are learning its easier to get caught in the act of committing a crime. You may not be excited about being photographed when you buy gas, go to the ATM or the convenience store, but like most of us youre willing to give up that privacy if it curbs crime. Whether we should tolerate the IRS invading our privacy for political reasons or the NSA snatching logs of our phone and Internet activity is quite another matter. But if one has already com mitted the crime and so far gotten away with it, or been burdened with multiple license suspensions for failure to support children they brought into the world, or is wanted for violating probation for domestic abuse, why would you not remember to put your seat belt on?Dear Editor:I have been a Republican my entire life and a member of the Baker County Republican Party the last several years. I have watched with great pride as our local party grew from about 10 people at meetings to an aver age of 35-40. I was surprised and disappointed that Joel Addington insinuated that we are divisive and extreme based on the opinion of one person. As with any group, political or otherwise, people come and go for a variety of reasons personal and professional. Republicans believe in school prayer, a strong nation al defense, limited government and a balanced budget. We believe that government at all levels should not squander tax dollars. We believe Omamacare should be repealed and our border should be closed. We believe that life begins at conception and that we have a constitutional right to bear arms. We watched in horror as the IRS targeted conservative Americans, monitored phone calls, e-mails and Internet postings. Four Americans were murdered in Benghazi and no one is responsible. The Con stitution and Bill of Rights are trampled on by this administration. If these views are divisive and extreme, I guess Im guilty and so is my party. I invite all Democrats, independents and NPAs (no party cans.

Timothy MartinMIKE ANDERSON PRESS ST AFF County Manager C.J. Thompcommissioners, are still trying to iron out wrinkles in a new policy implemented a few months ago to keep everyone informed on the status of unresolved issues. The new procedures, initiated at the request of Commissioner James Croft in March, call on the county manager to continually update the board on projects or issues commissioners have ex pressed an interest in pursuing ized. But sometimes what commissioners have in mind may not necessarily be how the county manager interpreted their comments, which is why Mr. Thompson asked board members at the June 4 regular meeting to clearly explain their desires and expectations. This is a good opportunity to discuss the process, he said, adding that it would be helpful if commissioners provided more information about what they would like to see tracked. For example, he said, Mr. Croft recently mentioned that the county might want to consider taking over the operation of solid waste collection sites again from a private contractor. However, no clear directive was given to him to research the economic feasibility of such a move. Mr. Croft then asked Mr. Thompson about the recent was listed under the Pending Issues space on the agenda even though the position has remained vacant since April 30. You want an update every single time that we have an open position? Mr. Thompson asked. The response was, basically, yes. I like to stay on top of issues Mr. Croft said, adding that he needs the latest information available to pass on to his constituents. Mr. Croft further told Mr. Thompson that he and his staff should be able to determine what it is that commissioners expect in the way of future reports by the recorded comments made at board meetings. Whats obvious to you is not necessarily obvious to me, the county manager responded. I dont mean to be cantankerous, Mr. Croft said. But it should be obvious. If an issue is still pending, its pending. In an apparent attempt to move the meeting along, Com missioner Adam Giddens said the discussion sounds like were splitting hairs here. Getting back to the solid waste collection sites issue, Commissioner Gordon Crews said it ap peared to him as though Mr. Thompson raised the question simply because he just doesnt want to miss something we really want him to do. Again, Mr. Thompson said he didnt know if Mr. Croft seriously wanted to study the idea or if he was just thinking out loud. In the past months, the commission has asked the county manager for progress reports on various matters, including the number of federal detainees housed in the county jail on a monthly basis and pending sand mining proposals. As long as a task is not complete and is moving forward it is still pending, Commissioner Croft said. Im an information person. I will try in the future to point out when something is still pending business. Mr. Giddens suggested that at the end of future board meetings whatever remains as a pending business matter should be clearly summarized so theres no mistaking what the board expects at the next meeting. Other commissioners agreed that was a good idea. If its that important to you, you need to make it known, Commissioner Jimmy Anderson its still pending. The intent behind the pending issues policy was to promote better communications between the administration and commissioners and ensure that things brought to the county managers attention dont fall through the cracks, such as occurred in February when an e-mail from the Florida Department of En vironmental Protection was not brought to the boards attention by the county manager. Mr. Thompson later apologized for his oversight in failing to notify commissioners that they had missed an invitation by DEP to submit input on one of two companies seeking permits to conduct controversial sand mining operations in Baker County. In other business during last weeks board meeting: Croft that a locked employee suggestion box be kept in the human ty worker could offer cost-cutting ideas to help deal with another In our workshop on May 21, the topic of seeking savings in the county budget generated a lot of interest from county employees, said Mr. Croft in a memo to the county manager. I have a feeling many county employees may have suggestions on our county budget that could be worthy of consideration. To encourage their participation, Mr. Croft said he chose the location because it represents privacy and may be entered from the outside and suggestions can remain unsigned. He said they should include ideas for stream lining departmental operations, increasing productivity without budget increases and policies that would have a positive impact on a department or county-wide budget. I know this sounds like cloakand-dagger stuff, Mr. Croft said, but added that some employees may be reluctant to share ideas for making their work areas more their superiors. The county manager said he would meet with department heads to discuss the proposal before implementing it. However, he suggested any written suggestions be screened to delete any derogatory comments about in dividuals. You think youre going to be unfairly targeted, C.J.? Mr. Giddens asked the county manager jokingly. After the laughter died down, Mr. Thompson said that wasnt his concern. He said he just wanted to make sure that nobody was unfairly maligned. After the board approved the suggestion box proposal, Mr. Croft looked at the county manager and said, This should be added to pending business. should be submitted by June 14. They will be removed at 9 am on June 17 and distributed to com missioners during the review of pending business during the June 18 commission meeting. continue sharing a consumer science agent position with Bradford and Union counties rather than going with a full-time agent for Baker County, which would dou ble the countys cost to $16,000 a year. The University of Florida has offered to fund 60 percent of the total $40,000 annual salary for the full time agent. Commissioner Crews said $16,000 a year for a full time consumer science agent who helps primarily low-income families deal with household budgeting, credit counseling and healthy lifestyle choices would be a good deal. And Commissioner Giddens suggested funding the full time position for one year and then reevaluating its worthiness to de termine whether it should be continued. Nonetheless, other members said the county cannot afford the $8,000 increase and voted for a tri-county position. The difference is that instead of the agent remaining housed at the Baker County agriculture department, he or she will work out of Bradford County. I believe the position is important but the question is can we afford it, Mr. Anderson said, then answered no to his own question. that Oldcastle Southern Group has offered to host the second Keep Baker Beautiful volunteer anti-litter campaign beginning at 9:30 am on June 15 at Little St. Marys River Park. to show up ready to lend a hand with other volunteers picking up cans, bottles, paper and other litter. The patrol will be followed by derby for kids 16 and older.JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comLate last month the Baker County Commission amended the countys housing assistance plan to accomplish two ends reduce the number of unemployed people in the Section 8 housing assistance program and ensure the federal government will fund it through the end of the year. For the Baker County Housing Authority to continue supplying Section 8 housing vouchers to of whom have little or no monthly income, the commission needed to revise the plan to include a policy regarding the termination of assistance should funding fall short, explained Lynne Walker, executive director of the program. The Section 8 program supplements the rent of low-income individuals living in privatelyowned housing. For instance, a single mother of two earning $10,400 annually could pay about $136 in monthly rent while the program paid the remaining portion of her rent, which must be within 10 percent of the fair market rent for the area. Like other programs funded by federal agencies, Section 8 has been hit with the across-theboard spending cuts known as sequestration, which took effect in March. That has cost the local program about $5000 a month thus far, roughly 10 percent of the annual funding, according to Ms. Walker. She explained that while emergency funding will be available to make up any shortfall through the end of the year, theres a finite reserve fund allocated to a number of similar programs. Plus, she said, theres no telling what will happen next year. We may have to terminate individuals from the program, so we needed to develop a policy for dealing with the cuts, she said. The result was the addition of a new section in the countys housing assistance plan to govern termination of assistance due to the housing authoritys lack of funding. Essentially, Ms. Walker nated from the program will be those with no or minimal (under $300 or so) monthly income for 12 or more months. Elderly or disabled persons will not be subject to the provision, she said. Program staff routinely meets with those receiving assistance to update and document their income. Another change approved by commissioners gives preference to applicants who have been employed for at least three months at 30 hours per week or more. Both changes are intended to encourage those seeking or already receiving Section 8 assis boost their monthly income. That would in turn reduce the amount of money spent by the program and free up funding for more families to receive assistance. With working families, you dont have to pay out as much money, Ms. Walker said. You do have families out work). You have other families who were working and then lost their jobs, and you want to help those families ... But there are individuals out there who are tak ing advantage of the system. We want to make it available to those who are trying, said Ms. Walker. The third amendment to the housing plan sought by Ms. obtained by under-reporting in come. We do have an individual in that category, she said, referring to a client who is paying back The new language requires such tenants to make payments equal to 10 percent of their monthly income, and if they fail to make even one payment, the housing authority will terminate assistance following a 30-day notice. Ms. Walker said theres a roughly two-year waiting list for Section 8 housing vouchers, but the list could be closed in the future. The program has received about $49,000 in monthly fedof the year. Four county commissioners (Jimmy Anderson was absent) gathered for a special meeting to make the changes on May 28, just days before the June 1 deadline to qualify for emergency funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban De velopment. They voted 4-0 to approve the new provisions and appeared to be pleased that employed families would benefit from the amendments. Several commissioners were surprised the programs work requirements werent more strict. Commissioner James Croft asked if the changes originated at the federal level or locally. Both, responded Ms. Walker. Kinks in unresolved issues follow-upEmployee suggestion box eyed We may have to terminate individuals from the program, so we needed to develop a policy for dealing with the cuts.Lynne WalkerCounty Housing Authority Executive DirectorA Sanderson woman was arrested at the Macclenny Walmart the afternoon of June 3 after she attempted to leave the store without paying for several auto parts, a necklace and health and beauty items. Deputy Marc Heath interviewed Tammy Pecor, 35, after she was detained about 2:30 by a store security worker who witnessed her place the items valued at $63 in her purse. Ms. Pecor was also charged with resisting the employee by shoving him in an attempt to get past him when confronted. In another theft, this one at Baker County Middle School prior to the dismissal of classes last week, a criminal complaint was filed naming a 14-year-old female student for stealing a $450 phone from another student.

PHOTO COURTESY OF CL A YTON YA RBOROUGH HAM radio enthusiasts meet decedent of citys namesakeA group of Macclenny HAM radio operators met up with Bernie McClenny in Dayton, OH last month before the annual HAM radio convention known as Hamvention at the Stockyards Inn. Pictured above from the dinner meeting are (from left) Clayton Yarbrough, Mr. MacClenny, Warren Davis and Ted Wirick. Mr. Yarbrough said Mr. McClennys great, great, great grandfathers brother was Carr Bowers McClenny Sr., the City of Macclennys namesake. Mr. Yarbrough met the decedent on the air via HAM radio a few years ago but never in person. The convention typically draws more than 25,000 HAM radio enthusiasts to Dayton each year. Our town Macclenny was spelled with the McClenny spelling until changed by the U.S. Postal service many years ago, said Mr. Yarbrough. JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comChris Adams of Macclenny really loves Krispy Kreme donuts. So when the location on Cassat Avenue reopened on May 28 after a seven-plus-year closure, and promised free donuts to the had to be there. He recruited his reluctant girlfriend, Christie Rutland, 29, to spend the night at the Krispy Kreme to ensure their place in the line for the grand opening at 6 am. As customers number 29 and 30, they will each receive a dozen free donuts once a month for the next year. Plus, they got free Tshirts. She thought I was crazy, said Mr. Adams, 40, of his girlfriend. For him, that particular Krispy Kreme location holds a special place in his heart, and his stomach. Before the donut shop closed in 2005, Mr. Adams worked as an industrial insulator in Jack sonville. He stopped there many mornings, both on his way to work and after bar hopping with nally rebuilt this year. It was great to see that Hot and Now sign back on, Mr. Adams said. He and Ms. Rutland arrived for their stay about 6 pm Monday and three hours later, tickets gone. The group ate pizza, danced to music and did other activities to kill time, which made the atmosphere lively and friendly, in his words. Mr. Adams was disheartened, however, to see derogatory comments posted to News4Jax.coms coverage about the event. We were just a bunch of people out there having a good time and staying out of trouble, he said.

PHOTOS BY JOEL ADDINGTON Mystery portraits remain unidentiedThese two portraits from the Baker County Historical Society were retrieved from the attic of the societys headquarters on McIver Street and displayed on the rst oor several years ago. They remain unidentied. Society historian Gail Elledge said the woman may be a member of the Thrift family because theyve shown the black and white portrait to family members who say she resembles women in the family but they still dont know who she was. Ms. Elledge said people often drop o photos with little or no information about them. The portraits, one a painting and one a photograph, both appear very old. If you have any information about who they may be, please call the historical society at 259-0587.BOB GER ARD | STA FF Back when I was in junior high school, NBC aired tion fan, but most of what passed for television sciLand of the Giants and Lost in Space The only things worth seeing up to that point had been Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. sode of Star Trek and saw a thoughtful show that monsters and even cheesier villains. I was hooked. I still am, and am pleased to say that Star Trek Into Darkness lives up to its hype and pedigree. Once again, director J.J. Abrams has created an appealing, well-acted, and very exciting new edition to the Star Trek lexicon. What Abrams does best with both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness is to both pay tribute to the series and the other movies as well as reinventing the characters. For Trek fans, the ensemble of lead characters is immediately recognizable. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are outstanding as Kirk and Spock and their supporting cast harkens back to the series. I know this is sacrilege for true Tekkies, but as good as the originals were, some of this ensemble are even better. Zoe Saldanas Uhuru, Karl Urbans Bones and Simon Peggs Scotty are equal or better than the originals. John Chos Sulu and Anton Yelchins Chekov are right up there with the originals. Abrams has been chosen to direct the new installments in the Star Wars franchise and if Star Trek Into Darkness is any indication it is exciting for all of us fans of Luke, Han and the gang. Star Trek Into Darkness reaches back to the best of the original set of movies, The Wrath of Khan and brings back the merciless villain Khan. Rather than Ricardo Montelbans over the top Khan what we get is Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as an under played, urbane Khan. The movie kicks off with Khan destroying an archive in London. On investigation the archive was a secret black ops installation for preparing for an impending war with the Klingons. Khan has awakened from a cryogenic sleep to use his supeBut being Khan, he turns on his new masters and attacks Federation headquarters. He escapes as Kirk is poised to kill him. Kirk and the Enterprise are sent to the Klingon territory to kill or capture Khan. What Kirk doesnt realize at the time is that the mission has been arranged with the hidden agenda of forcing the Klingons to battle. Kirk discovers that things are not as they seem and that Khans cryogenically frozen crew has been smuggled aboard the Enterprise inside photon torpedoes. From that point on the action is fast and furious. Khan manages to take over a secret Federation warship and the battle begins. one in the original Wrath of Khan, in which Spock It is a poignant moment with Pine and Quinto demonstrating their acting chops. This latest installment is certainly up to Abrams Anyone who has seen him in the PBS series Sherlock appreciates his cool charisma. Star Trek Into Darkness is as heavy as summer tion scenes and enjoyable characters. Rated PG 13, I give it 4 out of 4 stars. www.bakercountypress.com Spend 75 Save over $100/weekto buy the BAKER COUNTY PRESS and and insert papers You Bought Your First Home!Congratulations!

I wonder how long it will be before I see a No. 15 New England Patriots jersey or two walking around the Orange Park Mall? Thats right, unless you have been living in a cave or on a pilgrimage to Graceland, by now you know that the Patriots picked up former Florida Gator Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. He is probably at practice with the Patriots at their training camp by now. Im surprised the news hasnt caused the Internet to complete ly collapse because of the volume of articles, pro and con, about Tebows recent move. It was the most tweeted story on Twitter and dominated Mondays sports talk shows. As usual the comments rapture and vitriol as fans and non-fans alike weighed in on one of the most I dont really understand what makes him so controversial or talked about, even though I am writing this column. I suppose its a combination of his unapologetic faith and still unproven NFL skills. Even though I am not a resident of the Gator Nation, I am still somewhat a fan. I like his intensity, both as a player on the a good guy, and sports certainly needs a good guy with all the negThe Patriots are a great match for Tebow for a number of reasons. In fact, I cant think of a better match. For one there is Coach Bill Belichick. One of the most brilliant and irascible minds in the NFL, he will broach none of the media circus that has followed the quarterback around the NFL. His ire will shut it down quickly. Next, there is quarterback coach Josh McDaniels. He drafthe was the coach of the Denver Broncos. Hes a Tebow fan and will be willing to give him a try at the position. Then theres the New England fan base. They love quarterback Tom Brady. I doubt seriously that they are going to start chanting Te-Bow, Te-Bow every time the Pats are down a touchdown like the Jets did with Mark Sanchez. Then there is Brady himself, arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. Only Peyton Manning might be his better. Brady is certainly not going to think Tebow is breathing down his neck like Sanchez did, and it will give the Gator signal caller a chance to learn behind one of the best in the biz. Finally, Tebow himself. He desperately wants to succeed and was close to having the Canadian Football League or the Arena League as an option. So, I would think he would be willing to try most anything, including sliding into the tight end position and taking some pass receptions. Then theres that intense desire to win. Critics say every NFL player has that desire, but Im not so sure that every NFL players intensity matches Tebows. Im just happy he got the chance to prove himself.

The same contractor that handles Everbank Field is in charge of the $24,000 project, much of which is covered by base ball fund raisers. They are laser leveling the eld and planting Bermuda grass in the outeld, said Coach Fred Matricardi. The makeover should be completed in about three weeks, weather permitting. The eld is o-limits during the summer to allow the new grass to take hold. We are trying to do a little something every year to upgrade the facilities, said Matricardi.

My heroes have always been cowboys, and they still are, it seems. Willie Nelsons words cer tainly echo in the ears of Bradon Callen. The BCHS junior, is a cowboy himself, and a good one at that. He recently walked away with a new saddle and a state title in team roping at the Florida High School Rodeo Champion ships. Callen finished with 104 points for a 15th place in the All-Around but with teammate Colton Mathews of Lakeland, he took home the team roping championship and moves on to Youth Nationals in Shawnee, Oklahoma and High School Nationals in Rock Springs, Wyoming in July. Callen has always loved rodeo and his cowboy hero is 10-time All-Around champ Trevor Brazile. Rodeo comes naturally; the son of Michael and Rhonda Callen of Macclenny has been riding I literally could ride before I could walk, said Callen. Your horse plays a big role in your success. You have to have a good horse to be at the top of your game. Callens horse Pepper is instrumental in his success as a rodeo cowboy. He trained the horse from colt and the 6-year-old has been his partner for years. He would have been the AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) Horse of the Year if I had have sent in the paperwork, said Callen. Callen has calf roped and steer wrestled, but his biggest success is in team roping. Callen and Mathews go after the calf out of the chute and Callen ropes the head while Mathews goes after the heels. Florida, May 30-June 2, the pair grabbed third place going into We knew we would have to win the next two rounds to be state champions, said Callen. He and Mathews stood up to the rounds. In addition to the state crown, they won a new saddle and other prizes. One of Callens biggest supporters at the high school has been Wildcat weightlifting coach Scott McDonald. When McDon ald learned he was going to be representing the high school at Callen depicting a Wildcat paw print with a rope around it on the front and Wildcats on the back. Callen came out of the gates with Wildcats emblazoned across his shoulders. television. While most high school juniors spend their weekends watching television and playing video games, Callen is away most weekends competing. But with the win his biggest competitions lie ahead of him. He will compete in Shawnee from July 7-12, then at Rock Springs from July 14-20.
