COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings A tip to police that originated as a complaint to the De partment of Children and Families led to the arrest on June 12 of four Baker County men for operating a meth lab off Clete Harvey Rd. Several deputies went to the address about 6:45 and spotted a man later as Jason Oralls, 38, running from behind a shed near the residence and tossing a plastic jug onto the top of a grape vine. Investigator Matt Yarborough said Mr. Oralls ran back to the which he tossed several other objects. Meanwhile, Lt. Scotty Rhoden nabbed the remaining suspects as they exited the shed and walked hurriedly toward the residence. They were identified as Russell Rooker, 35, and Allen Yonn, 33, both of Macclenny, along with Jason Dupree, 34, of Glen St. Mary. The investigator, at the scene with cohort Mike Hauge, recovered the jug containing a clear liquid and raked out a cofwas suspected of containing meth residue. A vehicle belonging to Mr. Rooker was searched and yielded a package of pseudoephedrine, an over-the-counter cold relief drug and key ingredient to cooking meth. Investigator Randy Crews, a member of a multi-county task force, was summoned to inventory the shed, which Investigator Yarborough said emitted a seized several items used to manufacture the street drug, including batteries, a cold pack and steel wool. Mr. Oralls was charged with possession of meth and destroying evidence. He allegedly admitted to cooking the drug several times in recent months, but not on the day of the raid.

Robert Dyer and his wife Minerva were inside the duplex at 420 S. 7th St. when high winds and heavy rainfall started about 4 pm. Immediately following the incident Mrs. Dyer said her husband was alright, but he was taken by ambulance to Fraser hospital. She said she didnt know where she could stay that night and worried about collecting her belongings after authorities cordoned off the residence. Two birds in the home were not harmed, she said. The Macclenny Fire Department, county rescue, county deputies and Florida Power & Light all responded to the scene. The pine tree struck a power line going to the north side of the duplex, which according to property records is owned by Ian Broadbridge of Middle burg. Neighbors said they heard a large bang before losing power. A number of trees were downed in the area of 5th and 6th streets during the storm, Sheriff Joey Dobson said in a press release a few hours after the storm hit. He said no other injuries were reported beyond Mr. Dyer and the Red Cross provided temporary housing to the couple and another family whose residence PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Macclenny reghters wheel Robert Dyer into the ambulance following the storm.

City commissioners unanimously approved a deal with Old Castle on June 11 that enables the company to use re claimed water from the citys sewage treatment plant in its operation instead of pumping millions of gallons of water from the aquifer. Through much negotiating weve put together a win-win for the city and for Oldcastle, said City Manager Phil Rhoden after he presented the 11-page, 50-year contract to commissioners at the boards monthly meeting. Mr. Rhoden quickly added that the proposed partnership would be more helpful to Old castle than to the city since the companys plans have drawn opposition from numerous local residents committed to halting any further mining in the county. Further, he noted, the city has a permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection allowing the discharge of treated wastewater into Turkey Creek and probably would be allowed to continue with that method of disposal for several years to come. But they (FDEP) are very much in favor of our entering into this contract if at all possible, he said. ly did not want the deal with Oldcastle to be perceived as an ing vote by the county commission on the companys request for a special zoning exception to permit mining on lands zoned agriculture. This has nothing to do with sand mining, Mr. Rhoden said. Thats up to the county. Mayor Gary Dopson added that city officials decided months ago to remain neutral on the issue of mining since it had become so controversial last year. Since its a county decision, we decided not to support or the mayor said, adding, however, that the city would be foolish not to enter into this agree ment. For one thing, Mr. Dopson said, the state is allowing the city to discharge the wastewater into Turkey Creek for now. But eventually, he said, environmental authorities will order to send our reclaimed water. Complying with such a directive, he said, would cost the city, possibly in the $1.5 milPHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON The entrance to the property on which Oldcastle Southern Group intends to mine sand in the southeastern county.S ee page 2 S ee page 4 Oldcastle strikes 50-year deal with city

They are new because well, they are. They are retro because they look like a throwback to 1959. Which, of course, makes me look like a throwback to 1959. Im not so sure about looking like I could have hung around with Marty McFly in Back to the Future or sang with Jerry Lee Lewis backup band. But my wife likes them and I guess thats what counts. As a matter of fact, she picked out the Ray-Bans last week when I went in to see why everything was a blur out of my right eye. The reason was that I hadnt changed out these Coke bottles in five years. While I was getting my eyes checked, Kelley was browsing and scheming. Hey, Doc, how come Im having trouble seeing at night? Because youre getting older if you havent noticed. Really? Really. Well what does that matter? My eyes are still healthy arent they? Perfectly normal. Just old. Well, thats nice. The fact is, Mr. Gerard, at your age your eyes are only letting in 50% of the light that they were when you were 20. Interesting, and depressing. Does that mean you are charging me 50% less for my glasses? Ha! Im charging you 50% more to bring you up to speed. Figures. Just out of curiosity, he asked. When did you start wearing glasses? Interesting story, I responded. The summer I was 10 years old back when my eyes let in a lot of light. I was outside playing in the yard and decided to pick a handful of wildflowers for my mother. When I brought them inside to her she thanked me and then said, Lift your shirt and turn around. Measles? Bingo. German measles at that. The measles cleared out in about a week but my eyes nev er came back from the beating they took from the summer sun while I was measled up. My mother kept me in a dark room as ordered but it was too late. That fall I went back to school in my first set of glasses. They look a lot like the ones Im wearing right now. I went out from the examination and my wife stuck a pair of glasses on my face. Ray-Bans. The top half horn-rimmed black and the bottom half clear. Youre kidding, right? They look great on you. They looked great on that kid Ernie on My Three Sons back in 1962. But this isnt 1962. Youre going to love them. Hold still. She took a picture and sent it to my kids. They liked the look. Club wear, said son Spencer. So I look like Im going clubbing with the gang from Oceans Eleven. Yes and no. Not the George Clooney gang. The original gang. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford. I thought about it. Im all right with being a member of the Rat Pack. I guess. Kelley could see that I was hesitant about my new retro style so she suggested sunglasses as well. I dont usually wear sunglasses because my eyes are so bad they require a prescription. Ironically, the pair I chose? You guessed it. Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Me and the Beach Boys cruising with the top down singing Help Me, Rhon da. Speaking of irony, they came in on Fathers Day. When I picked them up and walked in the front door, Dylan and Sara both told me I looked like my Dad. I glanced at the mirror and they were right. He owned a pair of glasses exactly like these in 1962. Everything old is new again, including me. The Baker County Commission will now turn its attention back to whether it should approve a special exception to allow sand mining southeast of Macclenny on a 437-acre tract off SR 228. The proposal to permit Oldcastle Southern Group of Tampa was tabled last year pending issuance of permits by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, a process now complete. The state says its okay and the question now rebounds back to two local boards: the Land Planning Agency and the commission. Thanks to some creative problem solving, the matter of drawing out water from the aquifer for the mining process is now mute. Oldcastle and the City of Macclenny last week entered into a half-century pact to pipe treated wastewater to the mining site. It solves a problem for Macclenny, that of depositing the gray water into Turkey Creek from the citys treatment plant, allowed by the state for now but maybe not in the future, and it would appear to remove the main objection to the mining by Baker County citizens alarmed at the potential for adverse effects on the underground water supply. Oldcastle hasnt been sitting on its haunches during this interim, actively engaging in community-oriented public relations to convince Baker County it will be a good neighbor if allowed to mine the course sand suited for concrete and other uses. The companys efforts, including its successful bid for state permits, may pay off. The LPA hears the zoning exception request on June 27, then sends its recommendation to the county commission for a hearing on July 16. If the exception is granted, one wonders if it equates to setting precedent in the case of a second sand mine proposal by E.R. Jahna Industries of Lake Wales. That company has yet to obtain its DEP permits to mine at Trailridge east of Macclenny off US 90. Water is critical to its operation, as is true with Oldcastle, and it needs millions of gallons pumped from the aquifer. Jahna wont have the benefit of a pipeline from Macclenny so it will have to be drawn from underground. It also differs from the DuPont site off CR 228 because its closer to residential enclaves off US 90 that understandably dont want mining with the resulting traffic and potential danger to water supplies from private wells. Trailridge inhabitants no doubt still smart from the ill-fated bid to bring a medical waste incinerator to the neighborhood. Theyre not likely to accept being twice-burned (excuse the pun). For now, any such discussions are academic since Jahna still has to jump through the environmental hoops. As for the immediate agenda, it appears neither the LPA nor the commission has sufficient cause to reject the zoning request. Childhood summers remembered ...Were in for a long, hot summer this year so we turned to our Facebook peeps to ask, When you were a child living in Baker County, how did you stay busy during your summers? Roslin Jefferson-Dean: Catching tadpoles, minnows and crawsh in the ditches. Building tree houses, playing games like hide and seek, tag and red light. Catching lightening bugs! Melinda Crews Sorkness: Pool and when it was in town the skating rink, but my summers and the rest of the year as a teenager were spent work ing at the Midget burger for my parents. I miss that place. Marsha Bennett: Roamed the woods in the back of our house, play ing without a worry in the world. Once, we got big enough though, we all worked for tobacco farmers in the county to make money for new school clothes. I believe the top pay at that time for girls handing tobacco to the girls stringing it on sticks was about $6 a day. Doesnt sound like much, but it added up and we were proud to get it! Besides, it didnt seem too much like work for the girls. The boys had the harder job of picking it. Cindy Clark Rhoden: Riding go carts, building tree huts and riding bicycles. Anything outside. We even created our own games like Jug-ABall with a bleach jug! We didnt stay inside like the kids do these days! Michael Sean Batten: Walking the river with a fishing pole equipped with a beetle spin and a pocket full of them too. Cathy Clark Rhoden: We rode bikes all over, swam at the county pool, skated at the rink, went to the river and went the ED Ray theater every Saturday. We would also go to the scrub (Salt Springs now) and to Kingsley Lake. Rachel Starling OQuinn: Our local Girl Scouts in Macclenny are keeping our girls busy. Thanks to our cookie sales, we will be taking the girls on small trips swimming, movies, skating, etc. every other week this summer to keep the kids involved. Also planning to do community service activities with them over the summer as well. Gotta get creative to keep kids minds busy and focused on the right things. Joy Bennett Rhoden: Working in tobacco, picking peas, putting up veggies in freezer and canning. Free time What you had to say ...

ursday, June 20, 2013 T B C P Page 5 Page 4 T B C P ursday, June 20, 2013 MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF New health insurance rates will be higher for school district employees in 2013-14, but not nearly as high as teachers feared last month when they asked for pay raises to absorb most of the shock. Instead of a 30 percent or higher premium hike, which was the dreaded projection in a ruthroughout the district, rates for a dual-option package would rise from 1.49 percent for a Health Savings Account plan to 11.5 percent for traditional medical cov erage. The rates were part of the districts new health insurance deal offered by United Healthcare and approved by the school board on the evening of June 17. The new insurance coverage, which in cludes life insurance and vision care plans, will be effective October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014. Afterward, Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson said she hopes the district never again has to go through the emotional rollercoaster ride that the annual insurance negotiations seem to cre ate. The only thing I really hated this year was having our employees having to live in such fear, Mrs. Raulerson said about the intensity of anxiety that teach ers and other employees had ex pressed about health insurance costs going up. Im sure some were physically sick with worry. The District Insurance Committee, which is comprised of administrators and employees, worked for months to ar rive at a new insurance package in negotiations with insurance company representatives and consultants with Owen & Associates. Officials said this years necult because of all the unknowns surrounding the federal governments Affordable Care Act, more familiarly known as Obamacare, and its impact on the insurance industry. The rates really never go down, said David Davis, executive director of teaching and learning and a member of the insurance committee. But when contract talks began it appeared as though the rates could go up much higher than ever before, he said, adding, It was initially a very scary thing. Mr. Davis praised the committee for the many hours of hard work members put in trying to come up with the best insurance plan possible, though one which would completely please no one. rate increase, he told the school likely go up 29 percent to 31 percent. The committee just kept working and working. This is the best possible scenario that we could bring to yall. Tim Owen, owner of the condistrict each year to negotiate new insurance plans, told the board that the process generally starts and ends the same way each year with rates high up front but lower in the end. Its a process, Mr. Owen said. Weve never received the same with out the gate. But one thing that will help keep future insurance cost increases down, Mr. Owen said, is getting employees to take advantage of wellness programs that emphasize prevention through lifestyle changes. This year was made more challenging because the district has experienced more than a 100 per cent claims ratio in the past year, which means the cost of employ ee claims surpassed the total paid in premiums. Marcelle Richardson, district budget director, said last month that for every dollar paid in, they (insurance companies) are paying out more than a dollar in claims. Mr. Owen said that if the claims ratio had been only 60 percent, there would be zero increase in rates and a negligible increase at 70 percent. One thing that helped reduce the rate increase during negotiations was sticking with United Healthcare as the districts insurance provider rather than shopping around for another company. Loyalty is always rewarded, said board member Jesse Davis, an insurance broker. We would not have gotten the discount without our history with United Healthcare. The superintendent said whatever it takes she hopes the process in the future can somehow avoid creating the level of alarm and concern that employees felt this year. Mr. Owen said that it would be best to keep the talk about it relatively low while negotiations are ongoing. However, he said, that may not be possible as long as insurance negotiations remain open in accordance with Floridas Government in the Sunshine Law. Possibly through improved communication and education, he said, less anxiety may be produced. One thing he stressed is that the start (of negotiations and potential rate hikes) is never One thing he could not predict is what is in store for the future. The cost of health care reform is really just kind of beginning, Mr. Owen said. It will hit after October 2014. Were in for a ride. Well see a strong movement toward wellness (programs). Now that its all over, Mrs. Raulerson said the end result was positive. Im pleased with the outcome, she said, but it was a rough road traveled. The health plans Option 6, the Health Savings Account, should appeal mainly to relatively healthy people. Rates range from $553.95 monthly for employees to $1,317.40 for employees and their entire families. The money earns interest and is non-taxable. The deductible is $3,000 for employees or $6,000 e rates really never go down.

The countys Land Planning Agency is scheduled to consider Oldcastles application for a special zoning exception on June 27 at 7 pm in the county commission chambers at 55 N. 3rd St. in Macclenny. The county commission has scheduled a hearing to consider granting the exception on July 16 at 6 pm. If Oldcastle does not obtain the permit within 12 months the contract with the city will terminate and neither party will have any further obligation to each other. But if it wins approval, the design and construction of an underground pipeline to carry the wastewater stream from the citys Honeywell Road water plant to the east side of CR 228 and onto south of Interstate 10. Although initially the pipeline would convey roughly 700,000 to 1.3 million gallons daily, which is the currently permitted maximum volume allowed into Turkey Creek, the discharge pipe will be designed to carry a maximum 3.2 million gallons per day as the city grows. This will save city taxpayers a huge amount of money and decrease the chances of (Oldcastle) having to drill into the aquifer, the mayor said. Following the citys approval of the reclaimed water deal, Oldcastle withdrew its application with the St. Johns River Water Management District to pump more than 2 million gallons per day from the aquifer, said the companys Macclenny attorney Hugh Fish. He said the company also amended its special excep tion application with the county to include the city contract and its letter to the water management district. Commissioner Vernon Ben nett, who has been on the city commission for more than two decades, agreed that the contract with Oldcastle could save the city millions of dollars over time. He then issued a subtle plea for crit ics to back off to avoid squelching the deal for the city. I would urge people not to get involved too much with the county over this, Mr. Bennett said. Under terms of the contract, the city manager said, the proposed pipeline easement on public right-of-way would be built large enough to accommodate future water and sewer lines for commercial development along CR 228 south of I-10. The city would be responsible for installing the additional utility pipes. Commissioner Mark Bryant, who joined the board last month, agreed with the mayor and Commissioner Bennett that Oldcastles offer was too good to pass up. They approved the contract 3-0. Commissioners Tommy Johns and Richard Johnson were absent. Oldcastle intends to mine course sands for use in building materials by using a hydraulic dredging technique similar to that used by DuPont to extract minerals in the same area. The citys reclaimed water will form the lakes on which the dredge plans to install a septic system to handle wastewater and will use bottled water for potable use. Once the pipeline is completed it will become the citys property and responsibility for maintenance purposes. When Oldcastles mining operation ceases, the company will deed about fenced 375 acres to the city. Oldcastle will be responsible for complying with all govern ment regulations pertaining to the reclamation of mined lands. DuPont, which has been mining minerals in the area for many years, was granted a mining ex ception by the county for the same tract of land four years ago. However, since Oldcastle will be operating the new sand mine the county requires it to seek an exception also. Mr. Fish, told city commissioners before they voted that if they approved the contract his client had agreed to withdraw its application for a permit to drill a deep well for the project. About halfway through the discussion, Mayor Dopson disclosed to the audience that he and Mr. Fish are brothers-in-law and that he wanted to assure those present that the relationship would have Anybody who thinks I have know you very well, Mr. Fish said. Using reclaimed water is the right thing. Lets do the right thing. Dennis Collins, a real estate broker and a member of the citys zoning board of adjustment, said he viewed the Oldcastle proposal as being good for the future eco nomic development of the city and county. Im pleased theyre coming out here, Mr. Collins said. It will be a shot in the arm to the city and the county for commer cial development in that area. However, at least one person in the audience was a little skeptical. Marcus Rhoden asked Mr. Fish how long Oldcastle would continue to hold off on its well permit application, to which Mr. Fish responded that there were no guarantees that the company would never resubmit the request. They will operate as long as they can with reclaimed water, Mr. Fish said, meaning as long as the quantity and quality of reclaimed water provided by the city remains adequate to meet Oldcastles needs. F rom page 1 JOEL ADDINGT ON NEWS EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker Countys tenth grade reading scores shot up this year with nearly two-thirds of the high schools sophomores passing the FCAT reading test last spring. The latest round of testing results released by the Florida Department of Education in early June also show that ninth graders made modest gains, middle schoolers saw only minor shifts in the percentage of students passing the FCAT reading and math exams, and students at Keller Intermediate School lost some ground compared to the previous year Baker County School District plans to use these assessments as a point of conversation to determine the next steps in helping all of our students achieve their academic goals, said Susan Voorhees, the districts director of accountability and testing, in a written state ment regarding the results. We are committed to continuous academic growth and equipping students as lifelong learners, she said. Improving the reading scores among tenth graders has been among Baker County High School Principal Tom Hills top priorities in readers improve. The share of tenth graders scoring a Level 3 or higher, the passing threshold, jumped from 43 percent in 2012 to 60 percent in 2013. Thats also 6 percent higher than the percentage statewide. ers, meanwhile, passed the reading test compared to 53 percent last year and 53 percent statewide. FCAT exams are not administered to juniors and seniors. The state has phased out the FCAT math and science tests for high schoolers in recent years, replacing them with end-of-course exams for algebra I, geometry and biology I. Many students will have to pass them to graduate. Among the 236 students who took the alge bra exam, 57 percent passed compared to 58 percent in Florida. A similar number of pupils were tested on geometry and 60 percent passed compared to 63 percent statewide. In biology, 64 percent of students passed versus 66 percent in Florida. Last spring marked the second year in which the geometry and biology tests were administered and the third year for the alge bra test. New this year, however, was the end-ofcourse exam in history. Here 255 students took the test with 47 percent passing com pared to 49 percent across the state. At Baker County Middle School, the share of sixth graders passing the reading FCAT increased by 4 percent to 62 percent but a smaller proportion passed the math test this year than the previous year. math while 64 percent did so this year. Still, statewide only 59 percent of sixth graders passed reading and 52 percent passed math. Results for the middle schools seventh graders were mixed as well, with the percentage passing the reading exam dropping 5 percent to 61 percent and the share passing the math exam rising 1 percent to 62 percent. Local seventh graders outperformed their counterparts statewide, however. In Florida, 57 percent of seventh graders passed reading and 55 percent passed math. Eighth graders at BCMS showed gains across the board. Six percent more of them passed the reading exam and 4 percent more passed the math test this year compared to the previous year. Fifty-nine percent of eighth graders passed both tests, which is above the states 2013 performance at 56 percent in reading and 51 percent in math. termediate School passed the reading FCAT this year, but the drops were small at 2 per But with 58 percent of fourth graders and ing portion, they still lag behind the performance of students statewide, where 60 per cent passed. On the math FCAT, 3 percent more fourth graders and 4 percent fewer fifth graders passed the test compared to the previous year. Here, 62 percent of fourth graders and just compared to 61 percent and 55 percent, respectively, in Florida. Fifth graders were also given the FCAT science test and 37 percent passed it here versus 53 percent across the state.MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS ST AFF Baker, Union and Bradford counties will split $790,000 as though not equally. Union County will get an extra $100,000 cated there. Each county will receive one third of the remaining $690,000 $230,000 each in host fees. The fees were included in a new $7,012,120 budget approved by the New River Solid Waste Associations governing board on June 13. The new budget represents a slight decrease of $37,910 from last year. Some highlights of the budget include projected revenues totaling $5.2 million in tipping fees from New Rivers largest re fuse-generating customer, Alachua County, an increase of $46,500 over last year. Alachua County is expected to haul about 155,000 tons year at a rate of $33.55 per ton. Other anticipated revenue includes $1,008,000 from the three host counties, each of which pays a tipping fee of $24 a ton, and $610,470 Levy County, which pays $32.30 a ton. Tipping fees are projected to drop $69,600 from the host counties and decrease $14,810 from Levy County, though no explanation was offered for the change other than a reduction in the volume of trash anticipated. The volume of trash projected from Alachua County is also down 10,000 tons compared to last year, mainly because we over-predicted what the tonnage would be, said Darrell ONeal, the landfills executive director. Still, revenue from Alachua County will increase because it pays a surcharge of $2.35 per ton sion currently underway. The contract with Alachua County expires near the end of 2017 but Mr. ONeal said he was Gainesville on June 17 to discuss a proposed contract extension of Interest income on bonds and at the same amount as last year, $150,000. But if earnings con tinue their downward spiral, especially from bond funds, Mr. ONeal said the reality may be worse than projected. If we continue what were doing well be in the hole, he told the governing board during its monthly meeting last week. Later during the meeting the board vot ed to change its investment strategy in an effort to boost earnings. Mr. ONeal said that after re search on the subject he will present a proposed investment plan for the board to consider next month. He also suggested hiring a professional money manager to monitor the investment performances and report to the board quarterly. Employees are in line for a 3 percent pay raise next year, down from last years 5 percent salary hike. The total budget for salaries including $504,107 in base salaries, $160,000 in project overtime pay and $35,200 for holiday pay. Retirement and health and life insurance costs were budgeted at $350,500. dition to personnel costs, are related to equipment purchases, repair and maintenance, engidirt and fuel. New River board member Wayne Smith, a Union County commissioner, asked Mr. ONeal why the budget doesnt reflect any cash carryover at the end of the year. The executive director said thats because any money left over at the end of the year goes into an escrow fund to help finance future expansions and equipment purchases. For example, the budget includes $661,950 in escrow funds next year earmarked for cell construction, ex pansion and long-term planning. Several expensive pieces of equipment, including one item priced at $407,940, will be bought next year with cash from the equipment replacement escrow account, Mr. ONeal told the board, adding, Were in great One of the most important gy plant that will be built on New River property and operated by Landfill Energy Systems Inc., which built a similar plant at the Duval County. LES has a commitment to sell from the New River project to the Jacksonville Electric Authority generate an estimated $2.4 milyears of operation. No revenue from LES was included in the new budget, however, because Assistant Director Perry Kent said project completion is 6 months out, placing the start-up close to Thanksgiving 2014. That disappointed Mr. Smith, who said he thought the host counties were going to start reaping rewards in about eight months, using new money that he had hoped the counties could include as anticipated revenue in their respective 2013-14 budgets. ed that the company built a plant in as little as eight months but the one at New River will take longer. We could all use a little more money, Mr. Smith said, noting that Union County is looking at weve got to balance some way. an extra $100,000 to the host counties this year. Its your money, the boards money, and I serve at your pleasure, Mr. ONeal said. But he and Mr. Kent urged the board to wait until after they have negotiated a new contract with Alachua County. Board member Doyle Thomas, a Bradford County commissioner, agreed that more money would help the host counties deal with their budgetary problems, but on the other hand, I dont want to rob New River. After approving the new budalso: ment agreement with Mr. ONeal in his 19 years as New Rivers ment, which was suggested by Mr. ONeal, stipulates that he will remain in the exclusive full time employment as New Rivers ex ecutive director until October 1, 2018. Also at his suggestion, Mr. ONeals annual $96,439 salary will remain unchanged throughout the duration of the agreement. Unless he is terminated prior to the expiration date, at which time he said he would be eligible to seek Social Security opt to renew the agreement on an annual basis. The agreement further states that the board of directors may terminate and discipline Mr. ONeal only with a finding of just cause, which would include gross misconduct or conviction of a felony. If I screw up theres reason board. However, early termina tion without cause would subject New River to additional costs to include a lump sum cash payment equal to the amount that otherwise would have been paid through the expiration date.Dump dividend $230K 11.5% insurance hike less than expectedfor families and the maximum out-of-pocket expense for em ployees, including deductibles and co-payments, is $4,000 a year, or $8,000 for families.

ursday, June 20, 2013 T B C P Page 7 Page 6 T B C P ursday, June 20, 2013Police arrested a Macclenny man for entering a vehicle parked at the Boy Scout Landing on the St. Marys River the afternoon of June 12 and taking cash and prescription medication. Jimmy Morgan, 59, was stopped on Steel Bridge Rd. shortly after the 4:15 pm incident based on a description of his Ford pickup given by Robert Force of Glen St. Mary, an acquaintance of victim Tiffany Barton of Macclenny. Mr. Force told Deputy Earl Lord he and Ms. Barton were swimming in the river when he saw the suspect rummaging through her 1999 Ford. He con fronted Mr. Morgan, who tossed $85 in cash at him saying, Just take it before driving off. Sgt. Shawn Bishara took the suspect into custody and brought him back to the scene where Mr. Mr. Morgan was arrested for burglary and petty theft. In other recent cases, Traverse Combs, 30, of Glen was in county jail already when he was charged with theft of a pair of binoculars from Tanna Blanchard. The suspect was reported by his mother, who rents from the victim on Pierce Rd. She said he took the item from a shed, and later found a ticket from Baker to sheriffs investigator Chris Volz that Mr. Combs pawned it. Mr. Combs, in jail for tampering with evidence by tossing a amphetamine from a vehicle earlier this month, was re-booked for grand theft and dealing in stolen property. theft were reported to the sheriffs department on June 12, the account was hacked for $520 on June 3 in California.

The seat and a large tire were hauled off to the dump by Douglas Moore, a local landowner and proponent of Oldcastle Southern Groups mining plans in the southeastern county. The mining company sponsored the lunch that followed the morning cleanup on June 15. It was held in partnership with the countys recently launched antilitter program dubbed Keep Baker Beautiful. The program offers cleanup supplies like vests and garbage bags to volunteers who wish to help keep areas of the county free of garbage and debris. Its an effort pushed by the Baker County Commission and Commissioner Jimmy Anderson in particular. He helped at last weekends cleanup at the public park. pond where youths dropped their lines while lunch was cooking. Many of the two dozen or so volunteers were em ployees or consultants working for Oldcastle, like Macclenny real estate attorney Hugh Fish, who brought along his wife and grandson for the cleanup. There were other local residents, too, like Kevin Shell and Greg Sheppard. Both men are active in environmental causes and represent Baker County on the St. Marys River Management Committee. The committee recently endorsed Oldcastles plan to pipe the City of Macclennys treated wastewater to its proposed mining site, rather than siphon water from the aquifer.

Sulkowski allowed two younger campers, Hannah Davis and Elizabeth Kennedy who are 7, and a returning camper in fourth grade, Blakely Mallory, to participate as well. Former BCHS alumni Logan Raulerson and Tori Paulson are helping out Sulkowski and JV coach Vanessa Roberts. Current Wildcat players are also helping out with the camp. The camp teaches individual concepts combined with team training designed to focus on all aspects of the game. Theres a strong emphasis on passing, serving, setting and hitting fundamentals. This is a great camp because it gets girls who dont have the opportunity to play club (volleyball) before or during middle school, the additional training they need to be successful volleyball players, said Sulkowski. Our efforts are paying off as were now seeing some former campers infiltrate our high school program. The camp gets them used to the way we expect things to be done, which allows us to focus on more team training in the fall. The campers will have a guest appearance by Regina Schantz, head coach at Converse College, an NCAA Division 2 program in South Carolina, on June 20. Sulkowski coached there for a year and Schantz, a former player of Sulkowskis at Peace College and her assistant at Converse, took over the program after she left.
