BCHS bookkeeper Terry Lankford e-mails Coach Sulkowski about three missing credit card receipts, including the $79.31 charged at Whiteys. Sulkowski oers to pay for the charges out-of-pocket. Coach Sulkowski discusses the credit card use at Whiteys with Coach Mueller. At some point on or before this date, Coach Sulkowski also discussed the matter with Coach Brunner. Whiteys waitress states that Coach Sulkowski and Coach Mueller were, in fact, drinking during dinner and that Coach Brunner was not drinking. Coach Brunner is then re-interviewed and notified of the waitress statements. After being told that Whiteys has security cameras, Coach Brunner revises his statement, saying that Coach Sulkowski was indeed drinking, he had no alcohol and served as the designated driver home. The same day, Coach Sulkowskis wife Heather writes a personal check for $163.95 to cover the three credit card charges for which he did not turn in receipts. Coach Sulkowski is interviewed by school district officials about the unauthorized credit card charges. He states that Coach Brunner and Coach Mueller were consuming alcohol at the dinner, but he was not; he drove the district-owned vehicle home, and the restaurants waitress failed to separate the alcohol bill as requested. Coach Brunner and Coach Mueller back up that version of events in separate interviews the same day. Coach Sulkowski tells The Press the same fabrication, that he e-mailed the bookkeeper, effectively confessing his misconduct before it was known by officials. Both his statement and that of the super intendent five days prior contradict the bookkeepers March 11 e-mail to the coach, obtained by the newspaper September 16, asking about the missing receipts. Coach Sulkowski meets with school district officials and union representatives, stating that he was drinking alcohol at Whiteys and Coach Brunner was not, so Coach Brunner drove home. He reiterates that the waitress failed to separate the drinks, so they could be paid for by the coaches. He apologizes for his behavior and is suspended for two weeks. Whiteys faxes itemized receipt to Ms. Lankford, the bookkeeper. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson tells The Press that Coach Sulkowski sent the BCHS bookkeeper an e-mail before the credit card bill arrived, advising her of the Whiteys charges for food and alcohol.

Notes from an interview conducted on March 15 by BCHS Principal Thomas Hill and Robin Mobley, the districts personnel chief, after the school received the credit card statement also reveal two other unauthorized purchases by Coach Sulkowski in February one at the Quick & Handy convenience store in north Macclenny on February 14 for $12.20 and the second at Winn-Dixie in Macclenny for $72.44. That purchase was on February 26. Its also apparent from records of the districts investigation of the pur chases that Coach Sulkowski lied when he initially claimed he did not consume alcohol at Whiteys that evening, and that assistant coaches Adam Brunner and Matt Mueller lied when they backed him up during separate interviews on March 15. Both assistants admitted they discussed their upcoming interviews with Coach Sulkowski prior to the interviews taking place. The coaches guile about events at Whiteys unraveled after BCHS Principal Thomas Hill phoned the popular Clay County restaurant on March Sulkowski indeed was drinking that evening but Coach Brunner was not. Later that day, Mr. Hill and the school districts personnel chief Robin Mobley called Mr. Brunner back to a second meeting during which he was told about the call to Whiteys and the fact that it has a video surveillance network. He then changed his statement and said he did not drink that evening and was the designated driver when the trio returned to Macclenny in a district-owned Chevrolet. Coach Sulkowski in the earlier interview said he drove both ways. The fourth-year coach on March 15 contradicted his remarks a few weeks later to The Press that he voluntarily informed school bookkeeper Terry Lankford about the Whiteys charges before the school received the February credit card statement. That statement was echoed by School Superin tendent Sherrie Raulerson and printed in the April 4 edition of The Press. A transcript of Coach Sulkowskis March 15 interview reads: Question: -Coach, assistants lied about WhiteysSulkowski had other illicit credit card useS ee page 2 A Georgia man is in custody early this week charged with the robbery of a Sanderson convenience store, the third such incident in Baker County in two weeks. Kristopher Kent, 24, of Homerville in Clinch County, was stopped by a county deputy based on the description and license number given by clerk Stephanie Gaskins at the newly opened Gaskins corner store the morning of September 14. Deputy Chris Walker ted the suspects northbound 2000 Chevrolet pickup at the intersection of CRs 127 and 125 in Cuyler not long after the 9:45 am holdup. He stopped the vehicle moments later as it continued north on 127 and said he had to forcibly remove Mr. Kent from the truck after the suspect refused to exit after being ordered at gunpoint. Mr. Kent later led police to a remote swampy area off Holl Rhoden Rd. where he showed them the location of several articles of clothing matching those Ms. Gaskins said he was wearing when he relieved her of $119 from a cash register. She told Investigator Matt Yarborough the robber was unarmed and also demanded cash he believed was under the counter and the key to an in-store ATM. The investigator said other items that were ditched by the suspect when he took a brief detour off CR 127 included a remnant of a T-shirt used to partially conceal his face and a dog box. Police soon learned the pickup had been reported stolen from Homerville. Mr. Kent initially denied involvement, insisting the robber was an acquaintance he knew only as Austin. He then recanted and said he stole the money to pay parole fees in Georgia.

Had the local minister gar nered just 10 fewer votes, the race wouldve resulted in a run-off between him and Kirk Gravelle, a financial planner with Morgan Stanley, later this month. As it happened, Mr. Kitching received 51.55 percent of the 677 votes cast in the election, which drew just 21.45 percent of registered Macclenny voters.

Sadly, the tree has stood for nearly a century without a mate of its own. Chinese chestnuts typically cross pollinate one another to produce edible nuts. But being the only one of its species at the nursery, that Chinese Chestnut does not produce the nuts. Fortunately, the tree does have a new title to celebrate as Baker Countys only Florida Champion Tree. Champion trees are the largest of their species in the whole state. The nurserys Chinese chestnut towers 53 feet in the air and has a circumference of 168 inches. More extraordinary is the crown, which spans 92 feet.

LETTERS T O THE EDIT OR A re we safer?Twelve years after 9-11, do you feel we are any safer as a nation? We asked our Facebook friends that question to gauge whether people are feeling more secure these days than the days follow ing that harrowing day. Though the comments turned political quickly, but here are some of the responses we received: Christopher Apromollo: In the way of airport security, denitely. Kelly Arbelo: No Clinton T. Coker: As a country we are as safe if not more safe than ever be fore. What country would attempt to invade our borders? As citizens, are we safe from our own government? I think not. To some 9/11 was an eye opener to the radical religious factions around the world who care not for our Western ways of life. For that much I myself dont agree with some of the ways we as a society have come to accept. Traditional values seem to have no place in todays society. A nation which lives in fear of outside threats is a nation ununited. Roger Alexander: No. Teresa King: No. Jamee K Godwin: I dont think any nation can be safe enough. Somehow these terrorist idiots can manage to nd a way around American security. I understand that President Obama is probably the least favorite guy in America right now. I hate to be the one to tell ya, no one is safe no matter who the president is. People are crazy and that is how it has always been and will always be. Clayton Yarbrough: The world is more dangerous every day and hav ing a President who continues to cut our military forces and weapons only makes us an easier target for those who would attack our freedoms. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and that goes for the rst link as well. Leslie Wahlstrom Teeter: All the safety precautions they have placed since 9/11 is just smoke and mirrors. Like Clayton said, if the President continues to cut the military were in for a rude awakening! Its not just the terrorists we need to keep our eye on, its our own government as well! Dana Crawford-Pulley: Yes, our nation is safer. Since 9/11, there has not been another attack on American soil, and there have been no plane hijack ings. There have been threats, but theyve been thwarted. As for military draw downs, we were in the midst of a draw down before 9/11; in fact, military draw downs go all the way back to WWI, WWII, the Korean War and Viet nam. Krista Johnson: 9/11 made our country more aware of terrorist attacks and that we are not immune to them. I dont feel any safer! This world is so dangerous that you have to worry about taking your kids to school or just going to work. Lord be with us all! In God we trust! David Church: There have been terror attacks on American soil at Fort Hood, Benghazi and Boston. Those are three in the past three years. Valerie Scott: Certainly not with a President who is trying to destroy our country from the inside. People better wake up, attacks from outside is just a distraction ... Woodlawn Kennels Quality Professional Care ....... . . . . . . .................. Dear Editor:The State of Florida experienced a budget surplus last year. It is estimated that the surplus could see an increase of more than $800 million in 2014. Thats good news and it gets better! Governor Scott is doing a pre-election song and dance to the tune of a $500 million tax cut. He probably wont have too many Republican legislators joining him in the dance, at least not to that tune. He was unable to persuade his own party to give Florida teachers a $2500 pay increase. You think they will let him give away $500 million dollars? More than likely, they will allow him to give just enough to increase the probability of their chances for re-election. As Floridians, we are encouraged to see our economy improving. Republican-controlled legislatures decision to privatize medical and mental health services in the Department of Corrections. The legislature awarded the prison contract to an out-of-state company. Unlike good corporate friends such as Walmart, Winn-Dixie while some Floridians employed at DOC are losing their jobs as a direct result of the contract. There is something inherently wrong about this. Some of these people were my co-workers and friends. They are good people. We put ourselves in harms way everyday in order to keep others safe. Wearing only a personal body alarm for protection, we work in a very dangerous and unpredictably violent environment. I guess the position eliminations and subsequent layoffs are how the legislature and the department say thank you!Steve Blackmon, PhD Glen St. MaryDear Editor:I do not know the identity off my Daddys grave, but God does and you will have to an swer for it. ly, just ask you dont have to steal. I hope no one disrespects the graves of your parents like you have ours.Vickie Cox MacclennyDear Editor:I am a Macclenny taxpayer and watched the city commissioners and city manager and mayor work to balance their budget in these hard times. I would like to thank them for doing so without raising taxes. Job well done!Danny Norton MacclennyDear Editor:The newspaper should wait until people are convicted of crimes before publishing anything. I am not guilty (of dealing in stolen property) and I have children to worry about. Recently when I was left by myself to take care of them, I went through my house to gather things for a yard sale, then found I needed a little more cash for household items and food. I went by a friends house to see if she was interested in the pots and pans, and I was not aware they were stolen. The way The Press worded the article made me look like I went with my childrens father John Adam Mann to do whatever it was he did. I did nothing wrong and now the whole county thinks Im a thief because the newspaper didnt get the whole truth before publishing it.Amanda Weichman SandersonShame on ower thiefThanks for no tax hikeLayos odd way of saying thanks For the past four days I have been following the fortunes of Miss Florida Myrrhanda Jones. She is my son Spencers girlfriend and one of the favorites at last weekends Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City. In fact, Myrrhanda had a huge local following, having twirled with many local students and taught baton all through the area. Many Bak er County residents hosted viewing parties and were living and dying with her performance on Sunday night. If youve never been to a media event like the Miss America Pageant it is like nothing youve ever seen before and it was certainly like nothing Ive ever done. We were there for Myrrhanda and so we followed her every move as best we could. It wasnt easy. The contestants are kept on a very short leash and even with media credentials you can only see and talk to them for a very short period of time. Their time is spent with publicity events and practice. Atlantic City is the Las Vegas of the East and they bet on everything, including Miss America. A lot of people lost money when Miss New York Nina Davuluru came out of nowhere to win. The gorgeous Miss Oklahoma was the favorite at 13-2. Myrrhanda was in a small group at 12-1 until Thursday. That morning while doing her final twirling practice for the talent preliminaries, she came out of a leap and landed wrong. She ended up in heap on the floor with a torn ACL and MCL. Those injuries have ended the careers of many a pro athlete. She went to Philadelphia where the Eagles orthopedist worked on her. He told her this was the injury that had Robert Griffin III side lined for a season and advised her to go on the operating table right then. I told him that RGIII had until the next season, said Myrrhanda. I had 90 seconds of talent in three hours and needed to be on stage. They went to work, bringing in a knee brace designed for Eagles wide receivers and fitted it to her leg that night. With an improvised routine, she was flawless. The crowd went nuts, giving her a standing ovation. I interviewed her the next day after she won yes, won the talent competition. She was upbeat. Whatever happens in the finals I can say I got a standing ovation at Miss America. No one can remember the last time that has happened, she said. She is allergic to pain-killers, so she was performing with only Tylenol to kill the pain. It must have been excruciating. She instantly became a media sensation with television and press interviews. The Miss America blogs went nuts. ABCs 20/20 featured her in their Pageant Confidential before the finals. Everyone came away impressed by her tremendous drive and courage. I just want people coming away remembering that Miss Florida had heart, she said. Back in Macclenny people were jumping up and down and cheering and yelling at the screen in the dozens of watching parties. When Myrrhanda made the final five she had to answer the question. For many, it is the hardest part of the pageant; for Myrrhanda it is usually the easiest because she is a very intelligent and articulate woman. Host Chris Harrison cut her short on the all-important final question. Myrrhanda had been given a difficult three-part question on race relations in America, but Harrison cut her off after only 15 seconds to go to a commercial break though it was clear she had much more to say. The crowd erupted into loud booing, which clearly took Harrison and co-host Lara Spencer aback. They are booing Chris Harrison, Spencer said in a shocked voice. Please dont hate me, said Harrison in the commercial break. Social media went nuts with bloggers, tweeters and Facebookers around the country complaining that she had been robbed. On Twitter someone tweeted from the pageant, They gave her 15 seconds to fix race relations in America when they gave someone else a minute and a half to talk about Miley Cyrus twerking? In the end, Myrrhanda was third runner-up and we couldnt have been prouder of her. I pushed my way to the front after cameras stopped rolling to take her picture and she squeezed my hand. I just wanted America to see what I could do, she said emotionally. They sure did, sweetie. MY SIDE OF THE MATTERROBERT GERARD ing in stolen property, destroying evidence and driving on a suspended license. Police are still looking for leads in two thefts, one via a strong-arm stick-up, that occurred in Macclenny during the morning hours of September 3. An employee of S&S conve nience store on South 6th was thrown to the ground and a bank bag with more than $6000 was taken by a black male who appar ently had been waiting for him. Earlier, deputies responded to a burglary alarm at the B&P store downtown and found that it had been looted by someone who entered over the ceiling from a bathroom with an outside entrance. The haul there was also in excess of $6000. dividuals (Principal Hill, bookkeeper Lankford and BCHS athletic director Melody Coggin) was when the school received the credit card bill and asked for receipts for these purchases. Is that correct? Coach Sulkowski: Yes. When asked why she acquiesced to the coachs discredited statements on circumstances surrounding the illicit charges last spring, Superintendent gression. I will reiterate what I said when you interviewed me back in March, she replied earlier this week. I made the decision after much thought and prayer to punish the coach with a 10-day suspension without pay, which amounted to a $2140.91 loss in pay. I believe he did wrong and I dealt with it, she added, repeating an her earlier statement that she The superintendent did not directly address why she did not reveal in late March that the coaches conspired to lie about events that night, nor why she supported Coach Sulkowskis false claim that he re ported the Whiteys charges to the bookkeeper be fore the bill arrived. Before heading to the restaurant that February evening coaches attended a weightlifting meet at Fleming Island in the district vehicle and, according to Mr. Brunner, they left early for Whiteys. Mr. Sulkowski gets $3500 in supplements as assistant coach for that sport and track, but claims in the interview they are hands-off positions and thats why he does not go on the team bus. His base salary is just shy of $47,000. I am there (at the meets) for relationships with the students, he replied when quizzed during the March 15 interview. Of the $79.31 total, the charge ticket at Whiteys signed by the head coach includes a $10 tip that Mr. Sulkowski was later informed is also against district policy. bons, a Blue Gator drink and three beers. The remainder, $25.56, was for food. In a March 21 meeting with two teacher union representatives, Mr. Hill and Ms. Mobley, Coach Sulkowski admitted he drank alcohol that evening, and reiterated that he asked the waitress to separate the food but she did not. A memo of that meeting reads: Mr. Sulkowski was very remorseful and ashamed of his actions. All in attendance felt that [he] was genuine and truly sorry. [He] pleaded for an opportunity to keep his job. The coach also apologized at a school board meeting several weeks later. As for the Quick & Handy charge, the coach in that March 15 interview claimed it was a Gods honest mistake. I pulled the wrong credit card out of my wallet. Mine looks similar to the school credit card. The [store] is one of the few businesses that does not take a debit card. I usually make purchases with my debit card, he explained. When queried about the Winn-Dixie purchases, Said he: I went through the check-out line ... with my personal groceries and realized I had left my debit card in my vehicle. I used the schools credit card which was in my pocket. Asked why he didnt ask the cashier to hold the merchandise until he could retrieve his card, Coach Sulkowski replied, Convenience. Among the records obtained by the newspaper is a photocopy of a personal check signed by the coachs wife Heather for $163.95 dated March 18. The memo line reads reimbursement for missing receipts.

The tree may hold the title for some time, too, as the county forester said it appears to be healthy. It was measured grown, he said. Glen Nursery owner Lin Taber estimated the tree was planted by his grandfather between 19181920, making it nearly 100 years old. when they see it, said Mr. Taber, recalling all the marriages that began under its long limbs. As its name implies, Chinese chestnuts are native to the large Asian country and its American counterparts were at one time the most common species along the East Coast of the U.S. until a blight killed them off in the early 1900s, according to Mr. Lamborn. Thats one of the biggest reasons they started bringing Chinese Chestnuts over here, he said. Baker County is also home to a former champion tree, the 115-foot swamp chestnut oak off East Gilford Davis Road in Glen St. Mary, and two challengers, measured when a current cham pion dies or sustains severe damage. The challengers are a 65-foot American elm at the Olustee Batin Sanderson. Florida began keeping the Florida Champion Tree Register in 1975 to recognize the largest tree of each species within in the state. The register now contains hundreds of trees, including some national champions, according to the Florida Forest Service website. For more information on the program, including how to nominate a tree for the title, please visit http://www.freshOur-Forests/Florida-ChampionTrees#champ Mr. Kitching was in high spirits late last week. Im feeling good, he said. Im greatly relieved. I was not looking forward to a runoff. Mr. Kitching, who works for was preparing to meet with City Manager Phil Rhoden this week to discuss some things were looking at, particularly the budget, he said. The new commissioner representing District 4 will be sworn in sion meeting in October. He replaces Dr. Richard Johnson, who is stepping down after six terms When asked about his immediate plans upon taking the post, Mr. Kitching pointed to the citys aging infrastructure and potential grants that could fund improvements to Macclennys water and sewer system. places I want to work, he said. Theres opportunity to extend utility service to additional areas and improve the ones we have now. When asked to elaborate on those opportunities, Mr. Kitching declined to go into detail, agreements as a member of the Baker County Chamber of Com merces governing board. Some things I cant say a lot about but there are some job opportunities that the [Baker County] Development Commission and Chamber are involved in, he said. Macclenny realtor Dennis G. Collins, who drew 112 votes (16.54 percent) in the contest, was clearly disappointed and disheartened after the election. [Mr. Kitching] beat me 3-to1. It was short and sweet. The residents of Macclenny have spoken, he said, adding, I believe theres going to be no change. I basically think they [voters] want the status quo. Mr. Collins said he was disappointed that the candidates did not have the opportunity to debate each other. The Press sought a video-recorded debate, but Mr. Kitching declined to participate. God bless him. I wish him the best, said Mr. Collins. With respect to his other opponent, Mr. Gravelle, Mr. Collins said he violated a city ordinance prohibiting more than one cam paign sign per lot and ignored a local subdivisions rule against soliciting door-to-door, even af ter being informed of the rule. Then the night of the election, Mr. Collins said he was up late removing his signs from around the city, and when he returned home, his campaign sign there was vandalized. He called the act childish. ished with the second most votes, 216 (32 percent). I was obviously disappointed with the results, but I feel we ran a good campaign; we ran for the right reasons, to make a positive change in our community, and we made some great friends in the process, he said by e-mail. While we were not successful this time, mostly due to voter turnout, I believe, it doesnt mean the issues we identified have disappeared and I made a commitment to the business community and to the people of Macclenny to tackle those issues and help move this city forward. The low turnout was not sur prising, however, given the lack of state or national races on the ballot, said Mr. Gravelle, chairman of the Republican Party of Baker County. While I was not successful this time, the response I got from the community was overwhelm ingly positive, and that leads me to believe I will be successful in the future, he continued. I will teaching experience, to help me be successful in my next one. From page 1 From page 1 From page 1 From page 1Coaches Whitey lies...Kitching: Arrested aer store robbery...

Book online at schedulicity.com Owner/Stylist: Lauren Helms | Stylist: Amber Homrich MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS STAFF People who live south of Interstate 10 in neighborhoods along SR 121 soon will have a new place to shop for groceries, household goods, motor oil and other consumer products without having to go all the way to Walmart or Winn Dixie. As of now, no one has given the store a name. It will be built on a 1.8-acre parcel near Jeff Starling Road that was annexed by the City of Macclenny on September 9, paving the way for the developer to proceed with engineering and utility work before construction begins later this year or sometime in early 2014. Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough said a store in that part of the county should be viewed as a welcome convenience for hundreds of families who now must cross I-10 for most of their shopping needs. Theres a lot of people who live out there and there are no retail stores out that way, Mr. Yarborough said. The property is located at 9557 SR 121 S. and owned by Audrey M. Snelson of Tennessee. Although no official announcement has been made identifying the future stores name, it appears as though it will be similar to a Dollar General or Family Dollar, according to an engineering work on the site. vis Hastay of Jarvis & Folsom Inc. He said he was not at liberty to divulge any further information. Tony Flegert, senior project manager, also said he could not reveal the identity of the business entity, which he described only as a nationally known commercial retail store about 9,000 square feet in size. He said all plans and utility applications would be submitted to the city this week and all permitting should be completed in October. No construction schedule had been released yet, but once it begins it should be a fairly quick construction. Mr. Yarborough said he has heard rumors connected with the property but could not verify anything. We havent seen the name Dollar Store on any documents but were hearing it, he said. The annexation ordinance was approved unanimously and without discussion by city commissioners last week. When the ordi13 Mayor Gary Dopson asked if the administration had any idea what this land is going to be used for? Mr. Yarborough stated he had only been told it was going to be a retail store. The property is zoned commercial general, which includes retail operations as well other commercial uses. The mayor asked City Attorney Frank Maloney if the zoning would be withdrawn if the owner turns around and sells it and it is not used for a retail store. Mr. Maloney said not as long as the use falls within the commercial general zoning category. Mr. Dopson stated that his concern stemmed from another nearby piece of property that was never developed after it was annexed and has become very trashy looking. He said he would not want to see the same thing happen again. City Manager Phil Rhoden said he and Mr. Yarborough would discuss the concerns with the owner to make sure it doesnt. While preparing to welcome the new neighbor on the south end of town, the commission also renewed a relationship with another neighbor the City of Jacksonville in a cue service. The agreement calls for the two cities to asemergency calls, such as automobile crashes and accidental injuries, outside their respective jurisdictions if their personnel are tied up on other calls. Were scratching each others backs, Fire Chief Buddy Dugger told the board, adding that Macclenny has access to over a million units) from Jacksonville. His departments designated response area in Jacksonville, Chief Dugger said, will be Baldwin, Maxville and sometimes extend to Cecil Commerce Center. If they get a call notiready on the scene, he can cancel his unit and turn them around. Mayor Dopson raised a concern about one paragraph that stated: Automatic aid will be lapsed buildings and motor vehicle accidents involving extrication and/or victim entrap ment. We dont want them coming out on all Chief Dugger explained that a request for cue units are unavailable to respond in their own jurisdiction immediately and can be cancelled as soon as they become available. Fur be sent to Jacksonville if they are needed for another emergency within their own citys jurisdiction. Well never leave the city jeopardized, the chief said. That is covered by the following paragraph in the agreement: It is understood and agreed that no obligation exists to provide Automatic or Mutual Aid if doing so may seriously jeop ardize the Aiding Fire Rescue Departments status. According to the agreement, which becomes effective October 1, mutual aid not only may be provided when units are unavailable in the other jurisdiction, but also whenever the incident is beyond the capabilities of the onduty resources cue departments to participate in semi-annual joint training exercises with responding units to achieve better cooperation and operational effectiveness. The agreement also includes mutual aid in widespread damage in Baker, Duval and surrounding counties in the past.Tract is annexed for a store MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS STAFF Five months after celebrating what appeared to be a lucrative millions over the next 15 years, the New River Solid Waste Assotems Inc. remain without a contract. The two sides are still moving toward a joint project and have said during a board meeting on September 12. However, LES now wants to change details of how the relationship would work and how the New River regional Pricing is the number one issue. We want to make sure were getting the best pricing for New River, Joel Woolsey, consulting engineer, told board members during a meeting on September 12. The contractors original proposal said LES would pay New River nearly $2.4 million over a contract term of 15 years for 20 years. The gas would be used to generate electricity at a $5 million property, similar to a plant that the company operates at the Trail County. It then sells to the Jack sonville Electric Authority. Since then, LES has proposed They want to change the whole dynamics of it and make it Executive Director Darrell ONeal told the board. They want us to partner with them. Wayne Smith, the boards secretary/treasurer, said that could out the board having any way to How are we going to keep Smith asked. Thats one of the sticking points, Mr. ONeal responded. nance models. Perry Kent, assistant director, said its possible that New River could end up getting more rev than from the original proposal calling for the price to be based on the volume of landfill gas sold. Another issue of concern relates to the volume of gas produced by decomposing garbage at the 25-year-old by Baker, Bradford and Union counties. LES indicated several months ago that it could probably buy as much gas as New River can produce, though board members now say theyre not convinced of that. Mr. Kent said 100 percent of guarantee to LES, but they didnt jump on it. Board chairman Mark Hartley said that indicated to him that LES would have taken the offer if they could sell it all. So, now the board waits for a response from LES to see if an agreement can be worked out. The balls in their court, Mr. ONeal said. I hope it doesnt take too much longer. The whole deal, however, could ultimately depend upon one single issue: the length of the contract. While the original proposal from LES offered an optional 15-year or 20year contract term, the company is now pushing only for the longer term, even though the board has stated its preference for the shorter term. Theyre asking for a 20-year contract and said that could be a deal breaker, Mr. Kent said. the company has built a plant in as little as eight months but the one at New River could take twice as long. In other business during last weeks meeting: applicants. Those selected to be interviewed, possibly in a special board meeting this week, are: Paul Sanders and Taylor Law Firm, both based in Bradford County, and Russell Wade, a Union County attorney. The search for a new legal counsel was launched last month following the resignation of Terry Brown due to health reasons. Mr. Brown also had represented the Baker County Commission and the Baker Correctional Development Corporation. Mr. ONeal said $11,000 was budgeted last year for legal expenses, but only $3,200 was spent because the board did not meet every month during the year. safety rules designed to reduce speeding trucks and cut down on damage to the scales that weigh incoming and outgoing trucks. The new rules, which will inwarning, prohibit excessive no hard shifting or braking on the scales. The rules also were changed to eliminate a provision calling for drivers to be banned from entering the landfill after the first warning. Mr. ONeal said he thought that was too harsh, though drivers may still be banned after multiple violations. Signs have helped bring about safer driving on the property, he said, but the same individuals over and over again seem to ignore the rules.MIKE ANDERSON PR ESS STAFF Administrators, clerical workers, cafeteria personnel, bus drivers and other non-instructional employees in the Baker County school district received the same thing this week that teachers got last month: pay raises and bonuses. nal 2013-14 budget, which was approved 4-0 by the school board during a meeting the evening of September 16. Although the total amount of the new said that doesnt mean all of it will be spent. The $52,637,520.39 also includes our cash re money we intend to spend next year. The district customarily appropriates more money than it actually spends so that a certain amount of cash reserves are carried over into the next budget year. About $4.1 mil lion from existing reserves, which currently total about $10.3 million, was added to other anticipated revenues to help balance the new budgeted expenditures. In addition to employee raises and bonuses, the $52.6 million spending package also gives taxpayers a small gift in the form of a slight tax reduction. The new millage, or property tax, rate of 7.357 is 4.6 percent less than the current rate and 6.2 percent less than the rate that would have been required to produce the same dollar amount in tax proceeds as the previous year. Thats less than it was last year and its been com noted. The new school district tax levy is actually the lowest its been in nearly two decades. The owner of a home with a taxable value of $100,000 will pay about $735 in school taxes next year, in addition to city, county, water management district and hospital authority levies. Property taxes will raise nearly $6 million in 2013-14, a drop of 5.5 percent, or nearly $360,000, from last years proceeds. About 90 percent of the districts income is derived from federal and state sources, the latter of which provided $800,000 to fund increased teacher salaries this year. All non-instructional employees will receive a 3.5 percent pay raise and a $300 bonus this year. The measure was approved 159-7 by members of the Baker County School Related Personnel Association union on September 13. Approximately 30 other non-union workers iden access to personal information about employees also were approved for a 3.5 percent raise and $300 bonuses. Lastly, about 25 individual school and districtwide administrators, referred to as educational leaders, were approved for $417 bonuses, the same as teachers received. Those at the top of the pay scale also will receive longevity supplements of $7,188 for 240-day contracts and $7,817 for 261-day contracts. The supplements were the same as those granted to teachers at the top of the salary schedule last month. They were created by the school district as a way to compensate individuals who are no longer eligible for annual step increases. However, their net increase will only be a little were reduced previously. This is an effort to level out the salary schedule, back up after the salary at Step 25 was reduced. In other business the school board: cheta Crews, who resigned in June after 13 years of service to pursue a nurse practitioner degree at Jacksonville University. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson presented Mrs. Crews with a plaque bear ing the inscription: Health Services Appreciation Award. The superintendent credited Mrs. Crews with helping provide improved health services to thousands of children. Marcheta revolutionized the health care for Bak er County students, Mrs. Raulerson said, adding that she also had been instrumental in helping Baker County receive the states silver achievement award as a Healthy School District. Mrs. Crews said she had enjoyed her 13 years serving the health needs of students in what she de scribed as a wonderful job. The school board has been very supportive of school health services. Mrs. Raulerson said school nurses are the only health care practitioners that many Baker County schoolchildren ever see because their families have no health insurance. source for Keller Intermediate School.

For most of those with incomes below 400 percent of the federal poverty level which is $45,960 for individuals and $94,200 for a family of four tax subsidies will be available to make premiums more affordable than plans sold off the exchange, often times about half as much, according to estimates presented last week by the planning councils Senior Vice President of Operations Nikole Helvey. She compared the estimated premiums for various types of enrollees, gleaned from the Kaiser Family Foundations online subsidy calculator, during a pre sentation on the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, at the Healthy Baker, Inc. board meeting September 9. Healthy Baker is a nonprofit coalition of local healthcare providers and other community groups led by the county healthy department. The more knowledgeable we are about this, said department administrator Kerry Dunlavey before the presentation, the better we can serve our community, our family and friends, and get people access to healthcare. The Jacksonville-based Health Planning Council serves seven counties in Northeast Florida, including Baker County. It will receive funding from ida Covering Kids & Families, which is based at the University of South Floridas College of Public Health, to hire and train so-called navigators to assist the uninsured in applying for coverage through the exchange, dubbed the Health Insurance Marketplace by the federal government. Florida Covering Kids & Families received the largest federal grant in the state, some $4.2 milTheir duties are very focused on assisting consumers with information and questions related to the marketplace application although they also will need to know how to appropriately guide consumers who present with questions outside of the scope of purchasing insurance on the marketplace, explained Mrs. Helvey after her presentation. She said that will consist of re ferral and linkage to existing or ganizations and resources in the community. They are charged with as questions about the application itself but CMS [Centers for Medicare and Medicaid] is very clear that navigators cannot make recommendations on any one health plan over another, Mrs. Helvey said. They are to help consumers make informed decisions for themselves, not to During her presentation, she also dispelled what she called myths that have been circulating about the exchanges, navigators and privacy. She said notions that naviga tors could be criminals looking to steal personal information is comical because navigators must pass background checks, go through a 20-hour training and Insurance regulation. She also dismissed concerns about the federal government having access personal data, given the mountains of information the IRS already collects annually from taxpayers. Political maneuvering ensues Still, such fears have been expressed by state government leaders, including Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi, both vocal opponents of the healthcare reform law. Just hours after the Healthy Baker meeting, a message from the Florida Department of Healths (DOH) Deputy Secretary for Statewide Services, C. Meade Grigg, to county health departments said navigators could not conduct business on health department property. Mrs. Dunlavey, head of Baker Countys health department, received the same direction. She said late last week that its unclear whether navigators will be permitted at the West Lowder Street department, but that she supports granting them access. In multiple press releases, DOH has said the decree is a con tinuation of existing policy, that non-health department employees cannot conduct business at county health departments. That hasnt been the case here, however. Employees of the National Childrens Study, conducted by the University of Florida until the health department here. Mrs. Dunlavey said the director of the Baker County Prevention Coalito combating substance abuse locally, has plans to use space at the department as well. The states announcement set off protests by some South Florithere, including those in Pinellas County, who argued that because their county health department is owned by the county and leased by the state, navigators should be allowed at the site. The state compromised in that instance, allowing navigators in the building but barring them as DOH employees. The same deal could be struck here, since the Baker County Health Department is also owned by the county and rented by the state. Mrs. Dunlavey has not pur sued the compromise, but said some direction may be forthcoming from the state between now and October 1, when the exchange begins open enrollment. Premise for Obamacare Mrs. Helvey opened her presentation by explaining why the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, was signed into law in 2010, saying that mounting health insurance costs mixed with poor health outcomes was the cause. She showed multiple graphs noting that the U.S. was ranked by the World Health Organization as 37th of 50 health systems in developed countries around the globe, but second in how much we spend on healthcare. Were spending almost twice as much as everybody else but not doing a good job in terms of how healthy were keeping peowrong. And we know theres a lot of mixed feelings about ACA or Obamacare, but we knew we couldnt keep doing this, Mrs. Helvey said. Whether or not its exactly the right thing or still needs some tweaking, we knew there had to be some change. ACA instituted many reforms to the healthcare industry. Some have already taken place while others will be rolled out in 2014, including the individual mandate to have health insurance. For instance, beginning January 1, insurance companies will not be permitted to charge higher premiums to those with preexisting conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure, with one notable exception smok ers may be required to pay more than nonsmokers. Already in place is no-cost preventative care, like mam mograms and blood tests, and a rule that mandates insurance companies spend 80 percent of customer premiums on direct healthcare. If the companies fail to meet the threshold, they are required to rebate the difference to enrollees. The federal exchange Information about specific health plans to be offered on the federal exchange will not be available until October 1, but Mrs. Helvey said eight plans will be available to uninsured Floridi ans, likely from the largest insurers already operating in the state, including Florida Blue, Signa, Humana and Aetna. All plans on the exchange must cover essential health benefits like doctor visits, emer gency room visits, prescription drugs, hospitalization and rehab, among other services. They will all carry labels denoting the cost-share of the plan. Plans la beled bronze will have the highest out-of-pocket costs and lowest monthly premiums while platinum plans have the lowest out-of-pocket costs and highest monthly premiums. In the middle will be silver and gold plans. I heard from a guy at Florida Blue there will be like 100 different plans across all the levels, Mrs. Helvey said. Open enrollment in plans on the federal exchange will run through March 31, 2014 with coverage becoming effective twoto-four weeks after enrollment. The annual median household income in Baker County is about $47,000 while the per capita annual income is about $25,000. Using the online cost estimator (available online at http://kff. org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/) for plans on the exchange from the Kaiser Family Foundation, a single 38-year-old nonsmoker earning $25,000 with no children enrolling in a silver plan would likely pay $144 a month with the subsidies available on the exchange versus $313 a month without the subsidies. Similarly, a two-parent family of 40-year-old nonsmokers with two children enrolling in a silver plan and earning $47,000 would likely pay $962 monthly without subsidies, but $246 with them. According to the website, if your employer offers insurance that meets federal requirements, generally, you are not eligible for subsidies on the exchange. You would only be eligible for subsidized exchange coverage if your income is between 1 and 4 times the federal poverty level and you would have to pay more than 9.5 percent of your house hold income for your own cov erage through the insurance offered by your employer, it states. Mrs. Helvey said the planning council is hiring eight navigators to help enroll the uninsured population in the seven county re gion. While an outreach plan has could be deployed at the health department or perhaps Walgreens, too. CVS pharmacies and Florida Farm Bureau in Macclenny have announced they will offer enrollment assistance as well. Enrollment in the exchange can be done at www.healthcare. gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596 beginning October 1.

For the second straight week, wide receiver Michael Boone had an outstanding performance to lead the team to victory. He caught three touchdown passes from quarterback Jacob Carter of 48, 10 and 28-yards to bring his total to seven touchdown receptions on the season. Boone also added a 65-yard punt return late in the game to pad Baker Coun tys lead. Mike [Boone] is a great athlete, Carter said. Hes one of them guys that can make plays. I just have to throw the ball up there and he can go get it. Boone wasnt the only player who shone during the game; the boys had a complete team effort in the blow-out win. ended in a tie at 7-all, the Wildcats exploded with a 20-point second quarter to take a 27-7 halftime lead. A two-yard touch down run by running back Dalton Dyal put the team on top less than a minute into the second quarter, and the Wildcats were dominant for the remainder of the game. session after the Dyal score, defensive lineman James Carter stripped the ball from the running back and returned it 50-yards for the defensive touchdown to extend the lead.

The game against Crescent seven consecutive weeks of district play opens up September 20 when Ribault (1-1) visits Baker County. Coach Ryan Sulkowski said hes pleased with where his team is right now, but there is still room for improvement. Weve been executing well, the head coach said. Weve played well enough to have a winning record and have some trict stretch. We still have a few things to sure up to be serious contenders for the district. The teams quest to repeat as District 3-5A champions begins with a tough game against Ribault. The Wildcats will be tasked stop Trojan quarterback D.J. Gil lins, who signed with Wisconsin in July. He is Rival.coms ninthranked dual-threat quarter back prospect in the country for 2014 and can beat opposing defenses through the air and on the ground. He has 366 yards passing and three touchdowns through Ribaults two game thus far, while adding 94 yards and a touchdown rushing. With good quarterbacks such as D.J., you have to try to contain him, Coach Sulkowski said. Hes going to make some throws and break some runs, but we just have to not panic. We have to line up and play and master the schemes defensively for Ribaults offense as a whole. Although they know the next seven weeks of district play will be a grind, the players seem concoaches to ensure another successful season. If we play to the best of our abilities, do our assignments, make the right reads and execute then we will come out victorious, Jacob Carter said. If we as a team go out and do what the coaches have taught us to do, then we can do great things.

The team fell behind 21-7 midway through the second quarter but the players wouldnt stop seven with a 40-yard Brandon Harvey touchdown run that featured the running back shaking off and juking several Trinity defenders on his way to the end zone. Harveys score brought the game to 21-14 at halftime. The JV Wildcats received the ball to start the second half with a chance to tie the game. Quar terback Owen Register found Dustin Reed on a 40-yard pass to move the ball inside the 10-yard line. The Wildcats were unable to capitalize on the opportunity and an incomplete pass on fourthand-goal resulted in a turnover on downs. The Conquerors then took control and outscored Baker County 29-7 in the second half to win 50-20.

The week opened up September 10 with a home loss to district rival Bishop Kenny in straight sets (11-25, 13-25, 12-25). The loss dropped the team to 1-1 in district play. Senior Malory Osteen, junior Callie Wheeler and sophomore Callie Elledge all had six digs, while Wheeler also added six kills. The ladies bounced back a few days later by sweeping Terry Parker 3-0 (25-18, 25-19, 12-25) in front of a home crowd to improve their district re cord to 2-1. Wheeler had a great night passing the ball and also led the team with seven kills and six service aces. Senior Taylor Hancock also had an impressive game in the teams fourth win with 15 assists, six The squads week continued September 14 with a home meet that featured matches against Suwannee and West Nassau. The day got under way with the Wildcats defeating Suwannee 3-1 (25-22, 25-23, 18-25, 26-24) in an exciting game. Wheeler led the team with 16 kills on 22 attacks for a .590 hitting percentage. She also led the Wildcats with 13 digs and six aces. Osteen contributed 11 digs and nine kills, and Elledge had six digs. Baker County lost to West Nassau 2-3 (17-25, 2522, 22-25, 6-15) later in the afternoon to fall to 5-3 outstanding game with 18 kills and led the team with 16 digs and six aces. Callie Wheeler played the best I have ever seen her play this weekend, Coach Heather Sulkowski said. In two matches she was 34-8-65 (.400), 29 digs and 12 aces. She also had a 2.5 serve receive grade after 48 attempts, which is pretty good. Although the team fell short, Wheeler wasnt the only player who performed well. Hancock had 39 assists, while sophomore Ashton Alford had 10 digs. Osteen added nine kills and eight digs in the game. Coach Sulkowski said that while the team played well, there are still too many errors. While the varsity went 2-2 on the week, the JV squad mirrored the outcomes of their varsity counterparts by going 1-1 in two games in the week. The JV Wildcats were swept by Bishop Kenny 2-0 (9-25, 10-25) before answering back and doing the same to Terry Parker (29-27, 25-12). Their record stands at 4-2 and 2-1 in district action. After a busy third week, the program will only see the court once in its fourth week when the girls travel to play Columbia September 17. An open letter to Shad Khan. Dear Mr. Khan: I am one of the many loyal Jaguar supporters in Northeast Florida concerned about the start of the season and where it is going from here. We are two weeks into the season and the Jaguars have scored one, one touchdown. They dont look like they could score many more. I realize that when you hired coach Gus Bradley that you and he told the media that it was the beginning of a three-year rebuilding period. I get that. I understand rebuilding, but perhaps with the season underway it is time to put the wheels back on the bus and the engine under the hood. I know that you believe that you have the quarterback you want to run the team in Blaine Gabbert and the backup in Chad Henne. Im not so sure the en gine that drives the Jaguars fit the hood. I look at New England and Denver and see a 12-cylinder Lamborghini engine under the hood. I look at Atlanta and Philadelphia and see an Aston Martin engine. In NY and Seattle and I see a Mustang engine. In Jacksonville I see a Ford Pinto. Granted, there arent many exotic engines on the market. But if you cant get a Ferrari, maybe a Hummer will do. Theres a Hummer out there on the market. His name is Tim Tebow. Hes not a smooth, high-powered sports car engine. Hes an engine for climbing mountains and overcoming obstacles. Granted he has not done well in New England and New York. But look what he accomplished in Denver, leading a mediocre team to the playoffs. The Jaguars dont even look mediocre at this moment. They look bad. So whats it going to hurt? Add a player with the drive and determination of Tebow and you get a leader. He may not be Eli or Peyton Manning, but he brings that certain something to the locker room. You know he will never give up. The Jaguars dont have a deep threat like Julio Jones or A.J. Green. They have Cecil Shorts and Mike Brown and Justin Blackmon to catch the short passes and do the rest with their feet. Thats the kind of offense that Tebow specialized in at Florida and in his stint at Denver. Heres another plus. While youre rebuilding, youre filling the stands with fans, something that is not going to happen after a couple more losses. Bring in Tebow it could be worse.JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS cross country team opened up its season at the Mountain Dew Invitational September 14 at the University of Florida with several runners having impressive showings. runners were challenged by the humidity, temperature and the hilly course in the event, which featured both college and high school teams.

The program was attended by 17 adults and 9 children who gathered in the schools auditorium the evening of September 10 wearing red, white and blue ribbon pins distributed at the door by cadets.

At stage right was the MIAPOW table, with an empty chair, empty wine glass and red rose vase wrapped with a yellow ribbon, symbolizing all the soldiers that never returned home. Cadet Dustin Smith lit the candle on the table to open the ceremony and blew it out at the conclusion.
