COVERING BAKER COUNTY SIN CE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA Macclenny residents plan to open a zip line park in Baker County has moved the proposed location from south of the city to a larger tract in Sanderson. The nearly 206 acres Mark Broughton recently purchased just east of the Interstate 10 interchange with US 90 was being primed for industrial development just ago. Now he hopes to de velop an even big ger zip line park than originally planned near Macclenny on the west county property.

A 3-yearold boy and his 5-yearold sister were spotted by a neighbor walking north along the pave ment of busy SR 121 the morning of September 29. Fallon Evans told Deputy Chris Walker the children said they were walking to Burger King near Interstate 10 to get something to eat, and that their father was sleeping at their residence. Ms. Evans then took them to her residence off 121 and gave them something to eat until oftold Deputy Walker he saw the children playing on Buck Rowe Rd. about an hour before police were called at 10:20 am. Deputies soon located the fathers address, also on Buck Rowe, and had to knock loudly on the front door to awaken liam Sollicito, 25, and he said he thought the children were in the house. Mr. Sollicito was medically cleared at the Fraser Hospital emergency room and jailed for child neglect, a third-degree felony. The children were turned over to the Department of Children and Families, and Deputy Walker noted the boy had on a pair of soiled pull-up pants that apparently had not been changed in some time.

Nothing really changed for most people. The sky didnt fall. There werent mass layoffs. Insurance premiums didnt skyrocket for the roughly 85 percent of Americans who already have health insur ance. You may be surprised to know that health plans available through the exchange are there for basi cally two groups: those without health insurance and those who dont like their current health insurance. Maybe its too expensive, maybe the coverage sucks. Bottom line though, if you like your coverage, youre good. But if you listen to the Affordable Care Acts critics, youd think the law would have caused something just this side of the apocalypse for the American economy and the vast majority of us. Turns out, nothing really changed for most of us. If you dont have health insurance, now you have more options, hundreds more if youre in Florida, and access to govern ment subsidies if you make less than about $46,000 a year. Whos paying for those ask? As it stands now, mostly its special groups of businesses portion of the American people. Theres a new tax on tanning booth operators, for instance. Medical device manufacturers, drug makers and health insur ance companies are taking a hit. Im sure they can afford it. Some investors are paying more in taxes above a certain threshold. Ill start worrying about that when I can call myself an investor. Those provisions, mixed with cuts to federal spending included in the law, are expected to more than cover the cost of federal subsidies on the exchange. In fact, the Congresin 2012 that repealing the law would actually add more than $100 billion to the federal years. Heres secret nobody seems to be talking about anymore. We, the vast majority of Americans with health insurance, already pay a for those without health insurance. We just do it indirectly. Its the result of much cost shifting that occurs inside what has historically been two of the most complicated actors in the US economy: healthcare providers and healthcare insurers. Providers shift costs to insurers, who shift costs customers, and it seems like everybody shifts costs onto the federal government and the American taxpayers whenever possible. Complicated doesnt even begin to describe the US healthcare system, which is why the healthcare law is very complex. How do you change a very large, convoluted patchwork of a healthcare system without a large, convoluted, patchwork of a law? Read the details of your sometime. It would be great if they just gave you two lists the stuff youre insurance company will pay for and the stuff you have to pay for. Heretofore, its never been that simple. Many Americans dont even know their plans dont cover something until that something happens and they get a letter from their insurer denying their claim. How does one shop for good health insurance when its so hard to understand the plans with all the exemptions and exclusions and deductibles and in-and-out of network providers, etc.? Its enough to make your head spin. Part of what Obamacare does is standardizing the plans on the exchanges to some degree so you can comparison shop based on price and your income level. And all in one place where insurers are competing for your business. For those with expensive or meager employer-based coverage, the law will be a breath of fresh air. Perhaps it will even help spur someone with an innovative idea to start his or her own business since they are no lon ger dependent on keeping their job to keep affordable health coverage. Putting the complexity of the law and the healthcare system aside, before Obamacare was passed, healthcare costs, and therefore, health insur ance premiums, were rising year after year. Experts say the size of the annual increases has been shrinking in recent years, thankfully. But more needs to be done to completely reverse the trend. Getting more people coverage should help in that effort, but more on that in a bit. One of the causes of rising healthcare costs is that hospitals, and the companies and nonprofit organizations that own them, pay a hefty price for uncompensated care, which is a fancy word for healthcare provided to people without health insurance who cant pay their medical bills. In our society, we try to keep people alive when they get hurt or sick, regardless of their cir cumstances. One could argue whether thats a good policy or not, but no one can argue that its a really expensive policy. Typically those getting the uncompensated care are young healthy people who think theyll never get sick (I used to be one), or childless adults who dont make enough money to afford health insurance. Another secret Fox News wont tell you only pregnant women or those with children qualify for Medicaid in Florida. Poor childless adults were basically out of luck when it came to healthcare. Now its just the really poor (like those with incomes less than about $11,500) still are, even with Obamacare in place, thanks to the leadership in Tallahassees refusal to expand Medicaid. But its basically the afore mentioned groups young people and childless adults with low income who usually forgo the expense of health in surance. That strategy only works for so long, until they get hurt, or get sick, or otherwise need something more than an overthe-counter remedy. When that happens, where do they go but the emergency room, the only to see a doctor, who charges you an arm and a leg for some novocaine, stitches and five minutes of his or her time. And when they cant pay their bills, guess who does? Everyone else who has health insurance. Such uncompensated care drives up the costs of healthcare providers, who in turn, shift the cost to their paying customers in the form of higher prices for the vast majority of people who have insurance, whether public or private. Now, the proof, as they say, will be in the pudding. Will getting more people access to healthcare by getting more people access to health insur ance help reduce the overall cost of the system? I believe it will. People who see a doctor regularly are more likely to avoid serious illness, which are really expensive to treat, if they have coverage. Just hearing a physician give you the drink less, exercise more and avoid fried foods lecture at your annual check-up has to have some positive effect, right? What you had to say ...

Neighbor Sandra Parsons called police about 1 pm when she heard the children, a 2-year-old girl and a boy, age 1, crying in their backyard. Clad only in T-shirts, they soon moved toward the pavement and Ms. Parsons and another neighbor took custody of them and tried unsuccessfully to rouse the couple by banging on a door. Deputy Jacob Satterwhite said he found an open rear door and caught sight of what appeared to be the childrens room. He banged on the wall of the trailer and Mr. Akridge exited a bedroom. The deputy also noted feces Mr. Akridge, father of the boy, told Deputy Satterwhite he thought the children were in bed with him and Ms. Courtney, mother of the girl.

Thomas Akridge Tamera CourtneyFrom page 1Children are found neglectedZip line moves to Sanderson BCHS teacher critically injuredsite he purchased in September 2012 for $265,000 from Park Properties, Inc. of Jacksonville. That company, now dissolved, paid nearly 10 times as much for the tract in 2008. Mr. Broughton originally looked at plans for a water park on the site, but eventually realized additional investors would be needed to raise enough capi tal for the venture. Thats when he set his sights on opening a zip line park. The Mud Lake Road resident was granted a rezoning and height variance for a 20-acre portion of the property by the Baker County Commission this year to accommodate a recreational land use and platforms up to 65 feet tall. He said this week hell be seeking the same changes for the Sanderson property, which was purchased last month, roughly one year after the previous site was acquired. The latest land deal includes three parcels of 118, 67.5 and 19.5 acres plus an access strip connecting the tract to US 90 measuring nearly an acre. Court records indicate the sale price was $410,000, though $300,000 was borrowed for the transaction with TD Bank. TD Bank held a roughly $1.2 million mortgage from 2006 on the property with its former owner and real estate developer Av ery Roberts of Lake Butler, president of Roberts Land & Timber Investment Corp. bankruptcy protection in 2011 after deeding title to the land to the bank. Roberts Land & Timber was released from the mortgage last month, the same day the sale It was the property we wanted all along, he said, adding that the deal didnt work out until re cently. It will delay the [zip line park] opening probably until March, but in the long run, it will be better for us and for the community. Every time we want to do some thing [new], we wont have to deal with the neighbors, he said. At the previous location, south of Macclenny, the project drew a number of complaints from nearby residents regarding they feared the park would bring to the area. Mr. Broughton said an engiwith considerable experience de signing such parks is currently working on a revised design for the new site. He described the new design as similar to the old one, only taller and with a few more climbing apparatuses. He said the proposed park in Sanderson would be some 1500 feet from neighbors and include a tree line buffer. Future plans for the 108-acre property where the zip line park determined. Only 20 acres was rezoned for recreational use, leaving some 80 acres open to residential development. I have a buyer, but Im not sure I want to sell it, Mr. Broughton said. He said the market for new home construction is beginning to show signs of recovery and the prospect of building modest single-family homes may prove appealing, though he admits he lacks any experience in residen tial real estate development.

Judge Phyllis Rosier heard arguments during a September 18 hearing on a motion by Mr. Sweats Tallahassee-based counyear ago. A ruling on that motion is expected later this week. The plaintiff, Olin Wooten of Hazelhurst, GA and Houston, Texas, alleges that Mr. Sweat failed to grant the reduction in property taxes for agriculture property in 2010 and 2011. The result, he argues, was an increase in 2009 to $20,485 the next year. In tax year 2011, the tax on his holding titled Baker A-W, LLC rose to $20,516. Raulerson Rd. in the north county comprise 1000-plus acres and were purchased by Mr. Wooten and his brother Thomas in 2005. In his complaint, the plaintiff indicated he had yet to pay the tax bill from 2011. Taxes owed the previous year were paid by an Alabama bank that foreclosed on the now-bankrupt Adar Group from south Florida that was at the time involved in several large tract purchases in Baker County. Mr. Wooten, who re-pur chased the tracts in question in October, 2011, also alleges withallowed ag exempt status to other green card signed and returned taining the exemption. Appraiser Sweat denies the allegation, and another one by the plaintiff that other nonresident landowners have been treated similarly. The lawsuit prepared by the landowners counsel Gray Proctor of Orlando argues the usage and agricultural character of the lands has continued uninterrupted from 2008 until the present, for agricultural exemption in tax years 2010 and 2011. We have proof we sent out cord then [the now defunct Adar Group based in south Florida] as required by law and they did not returned the signed cards to us, countered Appraiser Sweat in a telephone interview this week. He added that the owner of record also missed the deadline afthe appeal process and deadline. Florida counties have the option of renewing the ag exemption with or without use of the cards mailed to landowners each year. In Baker County, they are sent out in January and have to be returned by March 1. Mr. Sweat, a three-term in cumbent, said some 2500 parcels here are under ag exemption and fort prior to the deadline to contact landowners whose property appears to qualify but have not returned the cards. Other Florida counties rely parcels are being used for agri cultural purposes, and the appraiser noted this week that 30 landowners are being scrutinized for that reason. Judge Rosier this week upheld the appraisers contention that green cards are not public under Floridas open records statute, thus granting the defense a partial victory in denying Mr. Wootens request to examine them for evidence that Mr. Sweat grants preferential treatment to in-county landowners. The complaint also makes reference to Mr. Sweat initially agreeing the cards were public record, and tallying up what it them. The appraiser is represented at public expense by the Levy Law Firm, also the general counsel to the Property Appraisers Association of Florida.JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comFor more than three decades Camp Trac ey in the northern county has been housing troubled youths and attempting to instill in them Christian values.

The camp will no longer be accepting new Since Camp Tracey did not renew its accreditation with The Florida Association of Christian Child Caring Agencies, it expired September 30, said the Lake City-based associations director Buddy Morrow. Mr. Morrow said it was his understanding that Camp Tracey would no longer be serving children, but adults instead. However, Mr. McCormick, 69, contradicted that notion, saying a decision has not been According to Camp Traceys website, the childrens home was accepting youths for a minimum of one year at a charge of $700 per month. IRS records indicate they took in more than $250,000 in annual revenue. We minister to teenagers between the ages of 13-17, both boys and girls. These young people come to us with a variety of problems including rebellion, truancy, drugs, alcohol, prostitution and criminal activity, reads the camps introductory page. Camp Tracey was among the homes featured last year in an investigative series by The Tampa Bay Times titled In Gods name: Unlicensed religious childrens homes. The series featured interviews with youths who spent time in the homes as well as allegations of abuse reported to the Florida Department of Children and Families.

The Times interviewed one parent whose son was getting suspended from school and ey, the father, Philip Ashby, said his son was doing great. He has an excellent work ethic, is much, much more respectful. He communicates better and even takes responsibility for things he does to some extent. All in all, he is a fairly well-behaved 17-year-old, Mr. Ashby was quoted. A former resident who was interviewed said that while punishments may have been too harsh at the camp, she loved her time there. The Times quoted another past resident, Brayan Kostyun.

The 2013-14 budget vote on September 24 was perfunctory. The spending plan, which in cluded $4,046,766 in the general fund and $2.3 million in the utility fund, had been discussed and debated in detail during previous meetings and had to be passed by October 1. Nearly $1 million less than last years budget and devoid of any extra money for such things as infrastructure improvements, tle discussion. Its tight. Theres no other word for it, City Manager Phil Rhoden said this week. Mr. Rhoden, who left his seat on the city commission to become April, said commissioners had insisted that no taxes be raised to fund the new budget. The goal was accomplished, he said, by keeping projected expenditures to a bare minimum. Were operating a little leaner, he said. Were telling staff to tighten their belts. Were just hoping we dont have any major problems. By those, Mr. Rhoden referred to water or sewer line collapses that have occurred a few times in the past year and required expensive emergency repairs. Luckily, weve been able to patch most of them up ourselves, Mr. Rhoden said, adding, however, that the city might be forced to borrow money next year municipal utility system. Were looking at trying to de termine what the priorities are, he said. We may have to borrow some money if we feel like the needs are there. Without a doubt, if I had my wish list we would be moving forward (with improvements) in our infrastructure, in our water and sewer lines. We need a systematic plan to replace some of these lines that have been down since the s and s. Despite the austerity of the new budget and the retirement of several employees who will not be replaced, Mr. Rhoden asserted that citizens shouldnt notice any We havent jeopardized anyone or any service, he said. Its just a very tight budget. Were going to operate with a leaner crew. Most of the decrease in this years budget was attributed to the city paying off some loans and hiring a private contractor to take over garbage collection duties, which resulted in a substantial savings. One item not included in the new budget is a plan to replace city hall on US 90. The city has been approved for up to a $1.5 million loan through the U.S. De partment of Agriculture to build a However, construction isnt expected to begin until some time next year after architectural and engineering designs have been completed. Mr. Rhoden said construction may begin next year but the city wont have to start making loan payments for another couple of years. After last weeks board meeting, which lasted about six minutes, a farewell party began with family, friends and others celebrating Mr. Johnsons years on the board with a ceremonial cake and a plaque. First, though, Mr. Johnson said he had something he wanted to say. He told the audience how much it has meant to him to serve the citizens of Macclenny for so many years. When I was appointed to the commission I never thought I would serve for 25 years, he said. But its been a real pleasure. Next to comment was Mayor Gary Dopson, who set the tone for a mild roast that followed as people began to share their mem ories and perceptions of the man called Dick, Richard, or sim ply Dr. Johnson. Dick just talked for a minute the night, Mayor Dopson said, chuckling. He said he couldnt recall ever hearing Dr. Johnson talk that long at a meeting before, then in a more serious tone talk league has been on the board. We tease Dick about not saying much, Mayor Dopson said. But we know hes always listened. He doesnt say much but when he votes he knows what hes voting for and he votes his heart and conviction. Moments later, the mayors brother and former city manager Gerald Dopson presented Dr. Johnson with a plaque commemorating his 25 years on the commission. Ive had the pleasure of serv ing with Dick almost 25 years, Gerald Dopson said, and I knew him long before that. We played in a church basketball league once. Dick was an outstanding basketball player but he was rough with his elbows and made personal fouls. We called him Elbow Johnson, Mayor Dopson interjected. Despite his tendency to play a little rough, Gerald Dopson said, Dr. Johnson was a dear friend to all and an outstanding board member. fective orators, Gerald Dopson said of city commissioners. But I can say this about Dr. Johnson. He was an effective leader because of the kind of person he is. Mr. Rhoden, who also served with the retired dentist for about seven years until he was ap pointed city manager nearly six months ago, said Dr. Johnson meanor, Mr. Rhoden said. Even when there was some disagree(as) the calming effect.Trimmed 4 budget is approvedJOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.com post this week after moving to Atlanta for a new job. Governor Rick Scott will decide whether to appoint a replacement or hold a special election to replace him. Supervisor of Elections Nita Crawford said she believes the governor will appoint someone since holding a special election just one year before the mid-term elections in November 2014 would prove expensive to the county. I would think that, but its up to the governor, the decision, she will announce it publicly. Mr. Davis has not been present for a school board meeting since mid-July. He said in August he would be resigning his seat, perhaps in September, and recommend the governor replace him with retired high school assistant principal Fay Sinclair. He left Baker County following his promotion within Colonial Life and Accident Insurance Co. He started the new job on August 1.

About a dozen businesses set up shop along US 90 near 5th Street advertising special deals or promotions, like the free T-shirts or product samples, as passersby perused merchandise and chatted with business owners. The event was organized by a group of downtown owners led by Lin Adams, who operates The Village Store, a restaurant and gift shop. After making speaking with the participating owners about mid-afternoon, she said they all agreed to join another sidewalk sale event in the spring time. She said there was plenty of consistent foot traffic, beginning as early as 9 am. AAA Help Bail Bonds owner Anthony James sat behind a nearly empty table in front of his about 1 pm. He said he gave away nearly all the promotional items he brought with him. Volunteers from the high schools JROTC program manned the street corners to assist visitors crossing the busy intersection at the heart of down town Macclenny. Theyve been just wonder ful, Ms. Adams said. Ms. Adams said the only thing she regretted was the limited signage on the day of the sale. A number of yard signs dotted the shoulders along US 90, but a banner overhanging the street wouldve helped draw more attention to the event, she said. For the next sale, the city may close off the highway between 6th and 4th streets to add more space for more businesses to participate next year, said Ms. Adams. Nonetheless, she was pleased with the outcome. Weve had an incredible turnout for a pilot event, she said.

After careful consideration, I made what I felt was the best decision for the football program at this time, Principal Hill said in an e-mail. I met with Mr. McDonald Monday afternoon [September 23] to inform him of my decision to recommend that he be relieved from his football coaching responsibilities. Principal Hill added that the change in Mr. McDonalds position is only related to football, as the coach is also the schools weight lifting coach. There is no word yet on who will be Mr. McDonalds replacement on the football coaching staff. Another possible change in the football staff could be the departure line during last few games. If she has left the staff, she has yet to inform Principal Hill. have any other information to add related to her position. If she is re Scott McDonald JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS varsity Wildcats bounced back after a tough loss in the district opener with a 4910 beat down of the Forrest Rebels (0-5, 0-2) at September 27 at Jerry Disch Stadium. Baker County (3-2, 1-1) and its high-powered offense returned to form after being slowed down the previous week by Ribaults defense. The team jumped all over the Rebels with a 20-point first quarter and never looked back. Both running back Dalton Dyal and quarterback Jacob Carter punched the ball into the end zone on short running plays give the squad a quick 14-0 lead. The defense then got in on the sure from defensive end CeCe Jefferson forced Forrests quarterback to drop the ball, which was pounced on in the end zone by both Jefferson and fellow defensive end Elisha Lee to give the team the 20-0 lead. Defensive back Jared Crews closed out the Wildcats domi of his two interceptions on the night. The team continued to roll through the second quarter. Af ter being a non-factor the week before, wide receiver Michael Boone rebounded with a nice game and scored one of his two touchdowns on a four-yard sweep play on fourth and goal. Boone once again converted a fourth down by hauling in a beautiful pass from Carter. The conversion set up Brandon Millers nine-yard touchdown reception from Carter to give the Wildcats a 35-0 halftime lead. The defense continued to consistently pressure the quarter back through the third quarter. Both Lee and linebacker Rashod Hadley dropped the quarterback for sacks on Forrests opening drive of the half, and Jefferson added another late in the quarter. The constant pressure forced the opposing quarterback to feel uncomfortable in the pocket, which led to mistakes the defense took advantage of. Crews hauled in his second interception of the have been returned for a touchdown if not for an errant whistle by a referee. The referees mistake didnt cost the Wildcats any points, as Dyal scored his second shortyardage touchdown of the night two plays later to give the team a 41-3 lead. The lopsided score allowed a running clock to be implemented during the late stages of the game. The defense allowed with less than nine minutes remaining, but it was long after the Rebels had any hope of making a comeback. The score also gave the reserve players a chance to get some valuable playing time late in the game. Freshman backup quarter back Joe Green connected with Boone on a long touchdown pass to extend the Wildcats lead to 49-10 with less than three minutes remaining. The win puts the Wildcats at 1-1 in District 3-5A play. The team is tied with Paxon (1-3, 1-1) during the district schedule and sits behind the three teams that are undefeated in the district Yulee (3-1, 2-0), Ribault (31, 2-0) and Bishop Kenny (3-0, 2-0). The Wildcats will look to move above .500 in the district when they travel to play the winless Wolfson Wolfpack (0-4, 0-2) on October 4. The varsity win came one night after the JV squad picked a 21-14 road victory at Charlton County. The team will try to continue its winning formula when it hosts Bishop Kenny at Memorial Stadium October 3. The BCMS Bobcats had the week off after going undefeated faced off against Florida Crown Conference foe Lake City October 1.

JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comSeptember couldnt end soon enough for the BCHS volleyball program. After struggling for much of the month to pick up wins due to injuries, the varsity girls dropped to 5-7 on the season after losses to Trinity and Stanton. The Wildcats lost at Trinity in straight sets (23-25, 16-25, 1125) September 24. Senior Malory Osteen tallied six kills and nine digs during the game. Junior Caldigs. Sophomore Tristan Lauramore had a good game and totaled three blocks. Baker County hosted Bishop Snyder two days later but lost an exciting game 2-3 (22-25, 23-25, 25-23, 25-20, 16-18). The Wildcats were on the verge of being swept for the fourth time in as many games by rallying back to take the third and fourth sets. The momentum almost carried the girls to victory, but the Cardinals held off the resilient Baker County team in the end. Osteen led the offense with 11 kills, while Wheeler had seven of her own. Junior Taylor Hodges led the team with 12 digs, while Osteen and sophomore Ashton Alford both sophomore Alexis Wendell added two blocks each during the game. While the varsity team has had a tough few weeks, the JV team had a mostly positive week and improved its record to 6-5. The lone blemish of the week came when they lost to Trinitys freshman team 0-2 (21-25, 1325). They rebounded by sweeping Trinitys JV squad 2-0 (25-23, 2523) in a performance that Coach Heather Sulkowski said was their best match of the season. The JV squad won once again when the girls swept Bishop Snyder 2-0 (2520, 25-18). As the calendar turns to October, there is still hope for the var sity team despite its recent woes. Junior Rebekah Long is expect ed to return within the next week from an injury that has held her out for the past several weeks. Although the Wildcats sit at 2-2 and are in third place in the division, they can still make the play place during the district tournament October 22 and 23. But there is plenty of volleyball coming before the tournament begins. The girls will travel to play Keystone Heights October 1 to try to move closer to the .500 mark. The team will then host Trinity for the Play for a Cure match October 3. All proceeds from the game currently battling breast cancer. Coach Sulkowski said the team wants to honor survivors and those who are currently battling the disease. JV will have games at 4:30 and 5:30, which will be followed by a brief ceremony. The varsity game will follow the ceremony and begin at 6:30. Cat volleyballers drop 2 matches PHOTOS BY JUD JOHNSON Above, Callie Wheeler serves. At right is Taylor Hodges (left) and Ashton Alford.
