JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker County Commissions denial of a sand mining proposal from Oldcastle Southern Group last summer was appealed to an administrative judge with mediation to begin this month. But more is at stake in the outcome of that case than whether Oldcastle Southern Group will one day mine course sand from the Trail Ridge formation in the southeastern county, or how high the countys legal bills could get as its attorneys defend the commis sions decision. It appears that another mining company, much smaller than Oldcastle, will be closely following the mediation process and any litigation that could result. E.R. Jahna Industries of Lake Wales, FL is family-owned company founded in 1950 and headed by James A. Jahna. It applied for the same spe cial exception to mine in lands zoned agriculture as Oldcastle back in 2011. In fact, both companies began the local approval process in lock step. The first hearings on the proposed mines, both using a hydraulic dredge technique to extract soil material, took place before the countys Land Plan ning Agency in May, 2012. E.R. Jahnas representatives pre area north of US 90 and east of Macclenny, and then Oldcastles proposal followed. The LPA panel recommended the county commission approve both projects, but when they came before the board in June, a motion to deny both ap plications failed 4-1 with Commissioner Mark Hartley mak ing the motion and casting the lone vote in favor. A motion to table both requests and wait for input from regulators and a third-party engineer passed, however. Commissioners deferred both applications once again in August at the mining compa nies request. It was then that the two companies appeared to part ways. Oldcastle Southern Group, the Tampa-based subsidiary of a multi-national construction conglomerate headquartered in Ireland, undertook a public relations campaign to build public support for its effort. Consultants and company officials met with local government and business lead-MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFFControversy surrounding the football coaches at Baker County High School continued at a meeting of the school board the evening of October 7 when family members of a well-respected coach raised objections about his abrupt dismissal from the football program a few weeks ago. In a voice cracked with emotion, Elaine McDonald read a two-page, handwritten letter expressing her concerns about how and why her son, Scott McDonald, was removed from the job he had loved and held for a decade as an offensive line coach. She described her sons love and passion for teaching teen athletes the game he played as a student at Baker County High and later at Jacksonville University, where he was an offensive lineman for four years and received a degree in history be fore returning to his alma mater. He was raised here. He wanted to come back here, she said, noting that her son tried to teach not only football skills on and integrity. That was taken away from him three weeks ago when he was stripped of his duties as a football coach after 10 successful years, she said. No, hes not Tom Coving ton, she said, referring to a legendary high school football coach who was as revered locally as Alabamas Paul Bear Bryant. But he has the same love and compassion for the kids. Hes heartbroken, she told the board. Take into consideration what you have done to this man. All he wants to do is coach offensive line for the Wildcats. He doesnt want to be head coach. Without making any spe Coach Ryan Sulkowski and the attempted cover-up of his misuse of a school district credit card, the implication in her statement suggested that the family believes Mr. Sulkowski may have had something to do with her sons removal.

County workers have not received a pay raise in about six years, though they did get a $1,000 one-time bonus during that time pe riod, according to the human resources de partment. Board members said it wouldnt be right for them to get a raise if county employees salaries remain frozen. I dont believe we should be getting a raise until our county employees get one, Commissioner Jimmy Anderson said. We should all be in the same boat. justed yearly by the Florida Legislatures Ofbased on a statutory formula keyed primarily to changes in population. Because Baker County has not experi years, the annual raises authorized for county commissioners have also remained relative ly modest. Cumulatively, however, the extra money theyre entitled to receive this year would represent a pay hike of about 5 percent. If they accepted the raise, their salary this year would jump from $29,440 to $30,866, said Human Resources Director Kathy Williams. The issue was raised at the end of a county commission meeting on September 17 when the newest member of the board, James Croft, the state concerning salary increases for county commissioners. I have declined the raise and will not accept it, said Mr. Croft, a minister who was elected in November 2012. Mr. Anderson said he, too, got the same information and also decided to turn it down.

W hos fault is it?With the federal government in the second week of its shutdown, and the Osceola National Forest closing, we asked our fans on Facebook who de serves the blame. Heres a look at some of the comments we received: Nicholas Delgross: How can they shut down a forest? If I want to walk in the woods,what government can tell me not to do this on public land! We the people own that land so how can they tell me not to go? Nick Mercorella: Obama and the Senate. It appears as if the House will negotiate. Obama does not have the authority to delay the employer mandate without Congress! The House can be talked into either delaying both employer and personal mandates or delaying neither and leave the law as is. Dems want it their way or to take the country down with them. Pepper Scott Sr.: Obama, the Democrats and all the media that is controlled by them. Lynne Bolen: Politicians! Bunch of lazy good for nothings, getting paid to do diddly squat! Janet Lauramore: All of them are to blame! We have a bunch of idiots run ning this country! Dana Crawford-Pulley: John Boehner and the rest of the Republicans are the ones who brought on the shutdown not President Obama. The House refused to agree to a budget until the ACA [Aordable Care Act] was defunded or repealed even though it was passed in 2010, after revisions suggested by both the House and the Senate were proposed and voted on. Then it was upheld last year by the Supreme Court. Carla Rhoden: The Democrats and Obama! They are not willing to nego tiate period! They are trying to make everything as painful on the average American that they can! Lynn Harvey Hand: I dont think you should have posted this. Now every illegal poacher around will be out hunting. Poor Bambi wont be safe now. No rangers protecting the picnic baskets, Yogi lets go. Oh my! Sorry I have to laugh at the craziness around us. Danny Norton: They are shutting down parks because they want to put as much pain on the public as they can, because theyre afraid that taxpayers will see theres a lot in the government that we dont need.

You could make a list to fill this page, I am told. But right now dont tell me any of them. I am sitting in the cafeteria at Shands (UF Health Jacksonville). A few moments ago, I walked out of the ICU waiting room to find some place quiet to compose my thoughts. I hope people dont mind tears running down my face as I write this note to you readers. First an update. As I write this, my beloved daughter Sara Beth is in ICU after an horrific car crash last Tuesday morning. She was touch and go. But God guided the hands of the doctors and nurses and soon she was stabilized and moved to ICU. I wont go through the specifics of her injuries; thats not what this column is about. Suffice it to say that she is currently stable and improving. She is also a miracle. Miracles happen. No matter what the outcome of this awful accident Kelley and I will always believe this. It is a miracle that I was sitting and holding her hand minutes ago. This column is a chance for us to say thank you. Thank you to the BCSO. Maj. Gerald Gonzalez literally picked us up off the side of the road when we were stuck in the miles-long traffic from the wreck and took us all the way to Shands dodging in and out of traffic with sirens blaring and lights flashing. Thanks to Joey Dobson for sending Deputy Rodney Driggers and Rachel Sulkowski who retrieved our cars and brought them to Shands and Pastor Sam Kitching who comforted and prayed with us when we were at our worst. Thanks to Jim McGauley and this newspaper for refusing to print reports until they heard an actual status from me. Thanks to people people all over this great county who prayed for our baby girl. I am convinced those prayers, and the ones that followed all the remaining day and all this week have kept her alive. We believe that and youll never convince us otherwise. Ten pastors came and prayed with us. I cannot begin to tell you what that means to us and her husband Aarons family. We can feel your prayers supporting and buoying us. Churches lifted her up. Sports teams took a knee and prayed. Students at the high school circled the flag and cried and prayed for a teacher they loved. I am told the crowd was so large that people could barely move. The students and teachers have been amazing. The teachers have donated sick days to Sara Beth, brought food and cards and done everything you hope that a family would do to make our life easier and to help lift the burden from our shoulders. The students have been equally wonderful. They made T-shirts with her name on it. They wore royal blue in honor of her. They wrote cards and letters in the hundreds. A huge banner with well-wishes and notes is draped in her room. The Homecoming Court is wear ing blue ribbons and the floats will be bedecked with blue ribbons in honor of Sara Beth. I want the students to know that we have read the cards and letters to her while she is sleeping and that a poem entitled The One Who Cared by one of her students hangs on her bulletin board. What they have written to her is a beautiful testament to her and to them as well. The school has set up a bank account, as have her friends at Players by the Sea, and we thank you for that. People are doing things that we are not even aware of and some we are. That is important and I thank you deeply for it. But it is the tremendous love and support that we have felt hourly that has brought us to tears and back. The thousands of Facebook posts from around the world the grandmother of a French girl Camille, our foreign exchange student a dozen years ago, is lighting prayer candles for Sara Beth in a Paris church are humbling. They come from everywhere. A family with two small children was shop ping when an older girl hugged the little girls and whispered in their ears. What did she say, the mother asked. That we are Mrs. Sara Beths Drama Camp family, the girls an swered. Though I am writing this thank you note, words cannot adequately express how we feel. Kelley and I have done nothing to deserve the overflowing of love that has been shown to our family. But then, I guess that is the nature of family and friendship. When it is needed families pull together for their own. Our family and friends have been there for us. So too has this county and we will never be able to repay that. A couple of days ago, the door of the ICU waiting room opened and in rolled Corey Craig and his family. Corey too was a miracle and he came to share with us how he made it through four months of treatment and to bring us a care package with the things we need for the long haul ahead of us. He didnt have to do that. We learned a lot and appreciated more. A final word about the nurses here at Shands. You hear the phrase angels of mercy and they are consummate professionals who also care about their patients. Several have checked in on us on their days off, and others have come by before going home after their shift to tell us bye and give us last minute updates. It will be a long process and we dont know whats ahead of us. As Kelley says, its a marathon, not a sprint. Thank you doesnt say enough, but its all we have. MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD Dear Editor:My wife recently phoned the Baker County Health Department to no longer there. She had not been with the department that long, and several doctors have left there under what some say are questionable circumstances. And the health department isnt saying why when asked. Many people in Baker County depend on the health department and have a right to know what is going on. Im sure Im not the only one asking this question.Michael Rowe SandersonWe should be grateful that no Baker County public schools is named after a Confederate general. Most people are probably aware the quarreling over whether to re-name Forrest High School in Jacksonville has begun anew. Proponents moan that Nathan Bedford Forrest was a mur dering racist and founder of the Klu Klux Klan in the years im mediately following the Civil War. Opponents say leave it be, that General Forrest was a brilliant tactician who condemned the Klan for its violent leanings, and is heralded by historians as one of the best military minds of that dark period in history. With the luxury to merely observe the debate, this thought reoccurs: why is a public school district with the challenges that Duval County has educating tens of thousands of children worried about the name of a high school? Okay, if the school was Charles Manson Elementary or Lee Harvey Oswald Middle School, proponents of name change have a strong case. But a Civil War general? No one has drawn the link between removal of the name and anticipated improvement in student per formance. Nor will they be able to. We shouldnt be surprised the Forrest name debate has reignited; its a given now that political correctness supersedes common sense in public discourse. Concepts, names, philosophies, religious beliefs and even health habits are now squeezed through the wringer of political correctness until they are presentable to a public that often cares little one way or another and generally has better things to do with its time. Is anyone out there calling for students at Forrest and other high schools to immerse themselves in detailed study on Americas bloodiest conflict that lasted from 1861 to 1865? How many of them would be able to recite those years, the names of the presidents North and South, the significance of Gettysburg, the reasons the war was fought, etc.? Heres a clue: if it aint on the FCAT, they probably dont know it. The same debate currently surrounds the Washington Redskins. The politically cor rect crowd grouses that the moniker is offensive to what we used to call Indians but now (at least this year) refer to as Native Americans. Colleges in various parts of the country, mainly in the west and northwest, have changed to nonoffensive team names in recent years, bowing to the same protests. Thats not surprising since college campuses are the meccas of the politically cor rect, staffed by do-gooders with plenty of time of their hands and enabled by administrators frightened of their own shadows. As for the Redskins, one wag observed this week the team name is truly offensive because it contains the word Washington. In light of the circus up there that passes itself off as a government, the remark couldnt have come at a more fitting time. Naming public buildings and schools after people is a questionable practice at any level, unless of course the honorees have paid for the building with private funds. Forrest and other schools in Jacksonville were named for Confederate generals, ostensively as a protest to court-ordered integration, so you can see where this is going. J. Franklyn Keller Intermediate is Baker Countys only school named after a person, but we wont be hearing clamoring by the politically correct crowd. Mr. Keller was the countys first black principal, and its a cinch neither he nor his forbearers were in the Confederate Army. We dodged a bullet there.Glad Mr. Keller wasnt a general Flood of supportis overwhelmingWheres the doctor?

Although we approve hiring comes from the schools and the superintendent, board member Patricia Weeks said. We dont initiate moving a coach That originates at the school level. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson said she was reluctant to discuss personnel matters during a public meeting, but told Mrs. McDonald that she could hear the heart of the mother speaking as she read her letter to the board. I understand; I really do, Mrs. Raulerson said, adding, however, that the decision to re move Scott McDonald from the football program was made by Principal Tom Hill and she had to support him as she does all her principals. I respect and admire them and I have to trust theyre making the right decisions, Mrs. Raulerson said. Mrs. Weeks then expressed her admiration for Scott McDonald personally and professionally as a coach and mentor. I have been so impressed with what he has done with our stu dents. He loves students, Mrs. Weeks said. We dont want him to go anywhere. Board member Dwight Crews said Scott McDonald has been a friend of his for many years, but that relationship is immaterial to the present situation. He also noted that he had no idea what transpired that brought this about. In personnel items, our hands are tied, Mr. Crews said. We do not have the authority to hire have that authority. However, the board may review personnel decisions if an members indicated that such an appeal was likely. Board member Artie Bur nett told Mr. McDonalds family members in the audience that he would do the same thing for my son. I do appreciate what Scott has done, Mr. Burnett said. But he said he had to trust the superintendent and school administrators to carry out policy and make decisions based on what they consider to be in the best interest of the district and its students. Next, a man who identified himself only as Scotts uncle, but whose name was later revealed as Mike Yarborough, asked to speak. Knowing his nephew to be a man who instills morals and virtue in students, Mr. Yarborough said, he became concerned when he heard about Coach Sulkowskis misuse of a credit card and subsequent revelations in The Baker County Press about his and three other coaches attempts to cover up the incident. Mr. Yarborough questioned at what point does a crisis of integrity have to get so bad that the school board will seek answers on its own, acknowledging that he did not know if the allegations in The Press article were true. During an exchange with the superintendent, whom he re ferred to as Sister Sherrie and she referred to him as Brother Mike, the moment became a bit contentious after he said he had spoken with the superintendent about the matter. You have not spoken to me, Mrs. Raulerson said. You sent me two e-mails and I said I would be happy to meet with you, but to say that we have spoken is not accurate. She went on to explain that she had fervently prayed and sought Gods will before she decided to punish Coach Sulkowski with a 10-day suspension without pay for his and the three other coaches error in judgment. That is done, she said. That and I still stand by it as the right thing. Im a Christian as well, and I have counseled with the Lord too. I showed mercy and grace with a measure of punishment. As for Scott McDonalds reassignment, Mrs. Raulerson reiter ated that she supported Mr. Hills decision but did not give a reason for the job change. Mr. Hill, reached by telephone at liberty to divulge the reason for relieving Mr. McDonald from his football coaching duties because its a matter involving multiple employees and its something I cant expound on. When asked if it would be safe to assume that the head coach, Ryan Sulkowski, had something to do with the change, Mr. Hill said that would be a reasonable assumption. But he wouldnt afStill, it had nothing to do with wanting to bring someone else in to replace Mr. McDonald as a football coach, Mr. Hill said. Ryan and Joseph Sulkowski (the head coachs brother and offensive coordinator) will handle the offensive line coaching du ties, he said. Meanwhile, Mr. Hill said Mr. McDonald will continue to be the head weightlifting coach and will continue to teach the same boys he once coached on the football He said he agreed with comments made by board members concerning Mr. McDonalds positive role and the impact he has had on students within the athletic department. I believe he loves doing what hes doing, Mr. Hill said. I appreciate Scott McDonald and what he has done. I dont want him to go anywhere else. In other business, the board: council members and improvement plans developed for all schools in the district for 201314. Board members, the superin tendent and school principals exwould continue to improve in the coming year. I cant guarantee that we will become an A school again next year, but were working hard to earn it, said Baker County Middle School principal Sherry Bar rett. She said the school has already made progress toward reducing excessive absenteeism and boosting attendance, thanks in part to ty Judge Joey Williams handling truancy cases. Judge Williams has been known to order truants to give up their cell phones because they were using it at night and not sleeping, said Robin Mobley, associate superintendent of personnel.

F rom page 1Mining mediation... County Commissioner Adam Giddens followed suit and said he would notify the human resources department that evening. Commissioners Mark Hartley, current chairman of the board, and Gordon Crews did not comment on the salary issue during the meeting last month. But they both acknowledged prior to a commission meeting on October 1 that they would continue to reject their salary increases as they have done for the past several years until employees get a raise. Mr. Hartley pointed out, however, that employees did, in effect, receive a pay increase because the county was picking up a greater share of the cost for employee health insurance in 2013-14. Though their salaries will stay the same, the savings to them in insurance costs will put extra money in their pockets, he reasoned. Although the state sets salmoney to pay them comes out of the county budget. In past years, if a commissioner wanted to re ject a salary increase he or she had to write a personal check to the county to cover the increased amount. That changed about three years ago when the Florida Legislature passed a law allowing local down, which may be a politically wise thing to do especially in an election year. Former County Commission er Michael Crews was the only member of the board to accept a $373 raise in 2011, bumping his salary from $29,440 to $29,813. At the time, he said he had earned the money and worked hard for my constituents. He said he would not have voted for a salary increase if it had been within his authority, but since the raise came from Tallahassee he didnt see any reason not to accept it. A year later, when he ran for reelection, his constituents turned on him and removed him on the commission many years earlier, was elected to replace him. While other issues were in volved in the 2012 campaign, including the controversial subject of sand mining, his decision to keep that raise may have played a small role in Mr. Crews defeat. Gordon Crews, who is not related to Michael Crews, said he has never considered taking a raise when employees went without a pay hike. I havent given it much thought, he said last week. The check to the county to cover it. Since then, I just tell Kathy (Williams) Im not going to take it. The following are salaries approved for commissioners in other Northeast Florida counties in 2013-14: Alachua, $73,028; Bradford, $30,962; Clay, $68,535; Columbia, $42,725; Duval, $92,757; and Union, $27,227.

The judge ruled that plaintiff Olin Wooten had no 60-day deadline in each of the two years in question. Mr. Wooten claimed he never received the green cards sent out to landowners each year that must be returned to receive substantial tax breaks on land used for agriculture purposes. Mr. Sweat contended the cards were mailed initially to owners of record, and the judge pointed out in her ruling that the property during the disputed time was not owned by Mr. Wooten but by either Baker-AW, LLC or an Alabama bank that foreclosed on it. In both cases, however, Mr. Wooten did not pay the disputed property taxes by the deadline, another statutory requirement that Judge Rosier pointed As part of the dismissal order, the judge also ruled she has no jurisdiction over three alleged violations of Mr. Wootens constitutional rights of equal protection, privileges and immunity and conspiracy to deny those rights. They are matters for federal courts. Rosier ruled during the hearing September 26 the under Floridas public records law. The plaintiff sought to examine them to uncover proof of his allegation that the appraiser showed favoritism in granting the tax relief. As a result of the denial, Mr. Wootens property taxes on the 1000-plus acres rose fourfold for those two years. The property currently has ag status. Im thankful its hopefully over and grateful that the judge ruled in our favor. We felt we did what the law told us to do, said Mr. Sweat on October 8, the date the dismissal was granted.

MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Business has been so good at that the three counties that own it Baker, Bradford and Union will get an even bigger dividend check in 2013-14 than in previous years. An extra $100,000 for each county was approved by the New River Solid Waste Associations board of governors during a special meeting on October 3. The windfall, which will be added to tight budgets that went into effect two days earlier, will be included paid to the counties. The board had previously voted to allocate $790,000 in host fees this year, with Union County getting the lions share $330,000 because the landfill is located there. Baker and Bradford were awarded $230,000 each. The original fees were included in a new $7,012,120 budget approved in June, including revenues totaling $5.2 million in tipping fees from the largest refuse-producing customer, Alachua County. At that time, Executive Director Darrell ONeal said New cially. Union County Commissioner Wayne Smith, who serves on the New River board, pushed for an additional $100,000 at the June meeting but was urged to wait until after a new contract was ne gotiated with Alachua County. He finally won during last weeks meeting after four othcould afford the extra measure of generosity. The counties have been paid a total of $8,694,474 in dividends since the payouts began in 1999, with $3.8 million going to Union and $2.4 million each to Baker and Bradford. The extra $300,000 this year will come from a $4.9 million fund set aside for future cell construction. The main reason for the special board meeting last week was to interview three applicants for the position of New River legal counsel. However, two failed to appear for the meeting due to an emergency and a scheduling consell E. Wade, got the job. Most board members said that Mr. Wade, who presently serves as the Union County attorney, was their preferred choice anyway. Mr. Smith, who routinely sees Mr. Wade at Union County Commission meetings, noted that his application proposed a $200 hourly fee and asked if he would consider less. Can you shave that a little bit? Mr. Smith asked. Whats a little bit? Mr. Wade responded. $180? Mr. Smith suggested. Sold! Mr. Wade replied, and the board suddenly had a new attorney. Afterward, the board received with Landfill Energy Systems Inc., which could be worth millions of dollars in revenue to New River over the next 15 years or so. Officials said they have rements that they requested from the company, but are still awaiting further information that they say is needed to fully evaluate the feasibility of the proposal before moving forward. The ball is in LESs court, said Joel Woolsey, New Rivers consulting engineer. They have deviated from their original proposal. Instead of paying New River nearly $2.4 million over 15 years based on a set price to be paid on the company now wants a 20year contract with New River as the venture. to enter into such a deal because of concerns that they would not be able to sufficiently monitor al data related to projected costs must be obtained, but so far the information has not been provided. The original proposal called for LES to build a $5 million plant at New River, similar to a plant the company operates at electricity for sale to the Jacksonville Electric Authority, crossing over lines owned by Clay Electric Cooperative and Florida Power & Light Co. predicted a workable deal with LES would be forthcoming in the near future. Its frustrating for us and them, said Perry Kent, New Rivers assistant director. Were close. Were just not there yet. I think were going to get it hammered out. Before he expressed his optimistic outlook, though, Mr. Kent described the information LES had provided thus far as smoke and mirrors. I think theyre just slowing it (the project) down trying to make us take what they want to give us, he said. Board members said they dont intend to rush into anything until every aspect of the proposed agreement has been thoroughly examined. Darrell ONeal, executive director, told the board that LES has recently entered into a similar agreement with Sarasota County, agreeing to pay 8 percent on the gross revenue, which he said is a much better deal than what theyre offering us. The regular monthly meeting scheduled for October 10 was cancelled. However, board members said they would be willing to meet again in a special session if a proposed contract with LES should materialize before the next monthly meeting on November 13.Board ups dividends e ball is in LESs court. ey have deviated from their original proposal.

ursday, October 10, 2013 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, October 10, 2013 MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF A recent agreement calling for Baker County to provide build ing inspections and construction plan reviews in Union County for $20,000 a year has been delayed due to the resignation of the man who has run the building department for more than a decade. Bob Hathcox, chief building ministrator in Baker County for 14 years, received a plaque commemorating dedicated service during a county commission meeting on October 1. His last day on the job will be Friday, October 11, after which he will begin a new job in a similar position in Lake City, except he said hell be inspecting quite a bit more commercial construction there than he has been in Baker County. Thats one of the many hats theyll have me wearing, Mr. Hathcox said on October 7. Ill be handling zoning, code enforcement, inspections basically the same things Im doing here. Theyre doing some consolidating and innovative things in that (Lake City) department. About eight years after he retired from the Marine Corps in 1991, Mr. Hathcox became Baker cial. I am the (countys) first licensed and certified building code administrator with a stan means I passed all the tests to get a standard license. I can go anywhere in the state of Florida and do this job. Mr. Hathcox submitted his resignation shortly after county commissioners approved a recommendation by County Manager C.J. Thompson on September 17 to share building department resources with Union County, which requested the assistance. County commissioners said they saw it as an opportunity to help a neighboring county and add $20,000 to a tight budget in the process. Under the terms of the oneyear agreement, the building de partment would conduct inspections and review building plans in Union County on an as-needed basis on Tuesdays and Thursday from 9 am to 4 pm. Union County was to furnish a vehicle. Now, both counties are in need Although the agreement would have placed additional workload demands on Mr. Hathcox, who is the only person in to do both commercial and resi dential inspections, he said it had absolutely nothing to do with his decision to take a new job in Lake City. Theyve been looking for a building code administrator for quite some time, he said, adding that he had applied for the position after seeing it advertised in trade publications. He will oversee a staff more than twice the size of his present one and handle more applications for commercial and residential building permits. But it ly rewarding, earning him considerably more than his present salary of about $49,000, Mr. Hathcox said. Mr. Hathcox repeated the same thing he told commission ers when he received his plaque last week: It has been my plea sure to serve the citizens of Baker County and the county commission. Weve come a long way in 14 years. Theres a lot of good people in Baker County. Meanwhile, the county faces replacement. Theres not a lot of them, Mr. Thompson told commissioners, adding that the other inspector in the department is only licensed to inspect residential construction. The county manager said he has reached a tentative agreement with Claude Bagwell, who conducts building inspections and reviews construction plans for the City of Macclenny, to run the building department for 90120 days to give the county time the position permanently. Mr. Bagwell, a retired Jackserving under contract with Macclenny for a number of years. We may contract it (the position) out, like the City of Macclenny, Mr. Thompson said. Or, he said, he may be able to work out a tri-county deal with Union and Bradford counties. That could be our new model until it no longer meets our needs in Baker County, he said. Financially, contracting will be cheaper. Commissioners were im pressed. Im for trying to do it interlocal, Commissioner Jimmy Anderson said. Commissioner James Croft agreed, saying the proposal could be a good way to streamline the operation and get more bang for the buck. Mr. Bagwell, at $75 an hour, could start as early as the next county commission meeting on October 15 four days after Mr. Hathcoxs last day. But because such as insurance or retirement or vacation days, the arrange ment would be a net gain for the county, Mr. Thompson said. In other business during last weeks board meeting, commissioners: ager to seek applicants for the soon-to-become vacant position of secretary and dispatcher at the county road department.

JOEL ADDINGTON N EWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comFlorida Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong visited Baker County last week to speak about the states healthy weight initiative at the health department. He was joined by more than a as County Commissioner Jimmy Anderson and others for lunch on October 4. Dr. Armstrong said the state has avoided using terms like obese or overweight in its messaging about the initiative, dubbed Healthiest Weight, because of their negative connotation. Encouraging the public at large to take small steps to change their habits and achieve their healthiest weight may be more successful than targeting specific groups with such lan guage, he said. Dr. Armstrong has been visiting county health departments and other venues across the state to deliver the healthy weight message since the campaign launched last January. Here in Baker County, about 29.4 percent of the population is overweight and about 36 percent is obese, according to Flor ida Department of Health data for 2010. The latter statistic puts the county amongst the bottom quarter in Florida. Statewide, 37.8 percent of people are overweight and 27.2 percent obese. Dr. Armstrong said the goal of his visit was to energize the community to begin thinking about solutions to the states weight challenge, which is not only a The state estimates that the cost for chronic diseases linked to being overweight or obese, including diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, will cost some $13 billion through 2030 if current trends persist. Roughly two-thirds of Floridians are overweight or obese, some 60 percent of babies born in the state are obese or overweight by the time they graduate high school and the states obesity rate has tripled in the last three decades, Dr. Armstrong said. Florida ranks 12th behind Colorado in terms of having the largest population at a healthy weight. Thats better than last years ranking at 19th. We want to beat Colorado, he said. Part of the problem, according to the secretary, is that the built environment thats emerged across most of Florida in recent decades makes the unhealthy choice the easiest choice. We have to reverse that, said Dr. Armstrong. We have to get beyond just saying eat less and exercise more. The secretary stressed that as Florida has grown and developed, its done so without regard to building an environment that promotes achieving a healthy weight. He hopes spreading the healthy weight message will help how their communities develop in the coming years and how those decisions will effect the health of residents. We want to encourage com munities to think differently about this, he said. And its not about a top down approach, or making sodas illegal ... Weve been building a lot of stuff but not a lot of parks. And thats odd because Florida is kind of like one big park. Dr. Armstrong recommended three easy steps anyone can take to promote a healthy weight. First, he said, drink more wa erages like soda or energy drinks. Second, choose fresh from Florida options like seasonal fruits or vegetables for breakfast or lunch. Lastly, take the stairs instead of the elevator or take a walk after lunch or dinner. For the majority of Floridians to boast a healthy weight, it will require a lot of small things over time to turn this around, Dr. Armstrong said.

The junior varsity team had an even wider margin of victory, 475 to 44.

Box 800 Tampa, FL 33601-0800 ForeclosureService@kasslaw.com 10/10-17c STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to the City of Macclenny, 118 East Macclenny Avenue, Macclenny, Florida 32063, responsible official Mr. Phil Rhoden, City Manager, to operate Macclenny wastewater treatment facility (WWTF), an existing 1.30 million gallons per day (MGD) average annual daily flow (AADF) permitted capacity advanced secondary activated sludge domestic WWTF, which would discharge effluent to Turkey Creek (Class III fresh water, WBID 2318). The facility is located at latitude 30o16.4713 N, longitude 82o7.6645 W on 798 Honeymill Road, Macclenny, Florida 32063 in Baker County. The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Departments Northeast District Office, 8800 Baymeadows Way West, Suite 100, Jacksonville, Florida 32256, at phone number (904)256-1700. The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Departments decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Departments proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Departments proposed action; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Departments proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agreement must be received by the Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes. 10/10c IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE EIGHTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA, IN AND FOR BAKER COUNTY CIVIL DIVISION CASE NO. 022012CA000232CAXXXX SUNTRUST MORTGAGE, INC., Plaintiff, vs. DANITA M.

Arthur THompson Rhodia WomackUtmost gratitudeIt is with broken hearts and humble spirits that we attempt to express our utmost gratitude after the passing of our baby Eli Kemp. The outpouring of love that this community has dem onstrated is unfathomable. If it hadnt been for the prayers, the food, the flowers, cards, and condolences from so many family, friends, colleagues, teachers of our children and others that we may possibly fail to mention, its inconceivable how our family could have made it from one minuteone hour one day to the next. Many special thanks to Tim and Donna Nunn for staying with Jennifer until family could get there, the first responders who went above and beyond to stay with and console the family, to Ed Fraser ER staff who gave utmost priority to our privacy and grief, to the Baker County Sheriffs Office who never left our sides and demon strated love and respect for our hurt, to Bros. David and Timmy Thomas who beautifully officiated the services and prayed without ceasing, to Glen Baptist Church for providing food for before and after the services and to V. Todd Ferreira Funeral Services for impeccably directing the memorial service. If we unintentionally failed to mention anyone, please accept our apologies.Pete, Jennifer, Logan and Erianna Kemp Wayne and Debbie West and family Bob and Tseuneko Kemp and family Steve and Barbara Porterfield and family Work day setThere will be a work day at South Prong Cemetery on Sat urday, October 12 beginning at 8 am.

The game was almost a carbon copy of the previous weeks beat down of Forrest. For the second straight week, the Wildcats put the game away early with a high-scoring opening quarter. After quarterback Jacob Carter threw an opening drive interception, defensive back Anthony James picked off Wolfsons quarterback and returned it for a touchdown to give the squad a quick 7-0 lead. The offense then got rolling and scored on each of its next two possessions. Carter scored on a short quarterback sneak to cap off a six-play drive. The offense would then take advantage of a fumble re covered by linebacker Hunter Chambers as wide receiver Mike Boone found pay dirt after making several Wolfson defenders miss tackles on a 15-yard catch-and-run. Boones touchdown gave the Wildcats a 21-0 lead go quiet for the most part until the late stages of the game. Carters was Baker Coun tys only score in the second and third quarters. Luckily for the Wildcats, the de fense was able to shut down Wolfsons offense, forcing three turnovers and a forced fumble. James would have added another intercep tion in the second quarter but a questionable pass interfer ence call negated the play, which would have given the offense the ball deep inside the home teams territory. The turnovers were a result of consistent pressure from Baker Countys defense, which for most of the game. They dropped Wolfsons quarterback three times for sacks during the game. rhythm once again late in the game with a 16-point fourth quarter. Running back Dalton Dyal punched the ball in from one-yard out and then converted the two-point conver sion to extend the lead to 32-0 with 7 minutes remaining in the game. Boone caught his second touchdown of the night on a screen pass that he took 15-yards to the house, which was followed by another successful two-point conversion by Dyal. The score was set up by a deep pass from Carter to James that went for about 40-yards. Boones the team the 40-0 win. The victory improved the Wildcats to 2-1 in District 3-5A play. They sit behind Yulee and Bishop Kenny, both 3-0 in the district, and have the same record as Ribault, which lost to Bishop Kenny 4229. Ribault still holds the tiebreaker over the Wildcats after the Trojans won 17-9 at Memorial Stadium September 20, but the loss to Bishop Kenny revives Baker Countys playoff hopes. The Wildcats will have to win for a chance to guarantee a spot in the post season. It all starts when the team hosts the Paxon Golden Eagles (1-4, 1-2) at Memorial Stadium October 11. While the varsity team improved its record, the JV team was unable to continue on the win board. The team fell to 1-4-1 on the season with a 37-15 loss at home to Bishop Kenny on October 3.

Wildcats dominate WolfsonJON SHUMAKESPORT S EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS volleyball program continued to struggle as the var sity team dropped to 5-10 on the season despite playing better and having a key player return from injury. The team was mostly competitive in its three games of the week and was aided by the re turn of junior Rebekah Long, who had missed the majority of the previous three weeks due to injury. She made her return in the Wildcats 0-3 (16-25, 19-25, 17-25) loss at Keystone Heights October 1. Although the team came up short, Long made an immediate impact by leading the squad with three total blocks and her six kills was the second most for the Wildcats. Others played well in the loss, too, as sophomore Ashton Alford had a career-high 14 digs and senior Taylor Hancock added 21 assists. Junior Callie Wheeler led the team with 10 kills. The girls returned home Oc tober 3 for the third annual Play for a Cure match against Trinity. The game raised about $1,000 to benefit Verna Midgett, who works in the middle schools seventh and eighth grade cafeteria and is currently battling breast cancer. There was a short ceremony to honor and show support for those stricken with the disease, as others in attendance who have been affected received a pink rose. The Wildcats played hard against Trinity, but ultimately fell to the Conquerors in an exciting contest 2-3 (25-20, 22-25, 27-25, 12-25, 11-15). The Baker County girls had a chance to put the game out of reach in the second set after rallying back from set at 21, but Trinity responded points to even the match at 1-1. Following a back-and-forth third set that saw the Wildcats take a 2-1 lead in the game, Trinsets to win the match. Wheeler had another great match and she led the team with 14 kills and 25 digs. Long continued to be a welcomed presence on the court as she added 12 kills and two blocks. Freshman Lindsey Love had a nice game with seven kills and four blocks. Junior Taylor Hodges totaled 13 digs and Alford added 11 in solid defensive efforts. The Wildcats once again went home loss to Columbia (18-25, 25-20, 25-21, 19-25, 11-15). They fought back after dropping the first set to take control of the match by winning the next two sets. The girls fell behind quickcit was too much to overcome, which set up the game-deciding Much like the previous set, the Tigers roared out quickly to take a 9-3 lead. The Wildcats slow ly chipped away at the lead and they brought themselves within one when the score was 11-12. But just like the fourth set, it was too big of a hole to climb out of and Columbia sealed the set win. The JV Wildcat volleyball team hasnt had much more success than its varsity counterparts. The JV squad was swept by Keystone team 0-2. The girls then beat Trinitys freshman A-Team 2-0 before falling to the JV team 0-2. The JV Wildcats were swept once more by Columbia 0-2. The ladies will return home October 15 for their final home game of the year for Senior Night.

The team scored on two quarterback runs, the Curtis Harmon punched the second quarterback sneak in from short yardage. The defense got in on the scoring, too, as Braden Sanders returned an interception for a touchdown. Savoy Jefferson capped off the teams scoring with a 20-yard touchdown reception. Coach Rock Rhoden said the team came out sluggish but dominated in the fourth quarter. He said depth and conditioning helps the Bobcats stay fresh and play well late into games. We told them during training camp wed win in the second half because wed be in the condition to do so, Coach Rhoden said. Weve got a good group of kids and more depth this year than weve had in the past that keeps the kids from going both ways. It helps us a bunch. The Bobcats were at home on October 8 against Richardson. See next weeks edition for further coverage. The fivegame winning streak isnt the only one the squad is trying to keep alive; the Bobcats havent lost a home game in two years. That streak will be tested by the Wolves, who Coach Rhoden called really big and really good. If the Bobcats are able to get past Richardson and win the following game against Hamilton, they will play the winner of the west ern division for the Florida Crown Conference title. Coach Rhoden is weeks of the season. I feel good, he said. I would take these kids and play anybody in North Florida.Lake City loses 26-14 PHOTOS BY DEBBIE PELH A M Pictured from last weeks Bobcats victory against Lake City Middle School in Columbia County on Octo ber 1 are (clockwise from top) No. 1 Curtis Harmon and No. 18 Braeden Sanders cover an opposing receiver, who went on to score a touchdown; Harmon rushing down eld, No. 28 Conner Butcher looking for a hole in the defense and the Bobcats cheerleaders on the sideline show ing their spirit.
