He and his wife are nearing retirement. They have, after all, three kids, five grand kids and another one on the way. So this is not really the best time to start a new business, especially one thats untested. Were at the age in life when we should be saving everything we got instead of investing it, said Mr. Smith, 57, during an interview with The Press on Monday. But I think it will pay off. After spending nearly six years designing his invention, a hair care products organizer, and spending thousands of dollars to make it a reality, hes too invested in the Hair Care Hideaway to stop now. This is my retirement, Mr. Smith said. His first shipment from Star Glory, LLC in Ningbo, China one full shipping container of merchandise arrived at a Jacksonville warehouse this month. Its retail value could be almost $80,000. Fortunately Mr. Smith has financed the venture out-of-pocket, from getting a patent and manufacturing the first load to pitching the product to large retailers like beauty supply wholesalers and department stores which could carry the product to consumers. Im not in hock to anybody. Im in hock to myself, he said. If this fails, I can back my truck up to the warehouse, haul them away to my backyard and burn them if I want to. Thats not to say Mr. Smith isnt confident his product is worth the $119.99 asking price. Once they see it, they like it, he said. The Hair Care Hideaway began as a solution to a problem clutter on the bathroom vanity. Mr. Smith is quick to point out his wife and two daughters werent the most organized with their hair care products, but he admits to using a blow dryer, too. I knew there had to be a better way to do this, said Mr. Smith. He tried to reorganize his existing bathroom, but nothing worked. He then thought about using the medicine cabinet less for storing Inventor Randy Smith of Macclenny displays his product, the Hair Care Hideaway, inside the Jacksonville warehouse housing his rst shipment from China.S ee page 4JOEL ADDINGT ONMANAGING EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.comJason Christopher Carter, 39, of Macclenny, was killed Saturday night when his 2013 Jeep overturned on CR 127. Mr. Carters vehicle was head ing south about 11 pm and veered into the north bound lane and off the roadway, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. FHP said the Jeep hit a culvert and flipped, ejecting the victim who was not wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The vehicle had about $12,000 in damage. FHP is investigating whether alcohol was involved. Mr. Carter was a father, husband and former member of Iron Workers Local 597 in Jacksonville. According to his Facebook page, the Macclenny native attended Florida State College after graduating from Baker County High School. Jason CarterThe sheriffs department arrested two occupants of a mobile home south west of Macclenny for cooking methamphetamine, and charged one of them with felony neglect because her two children were present in an environ ment with a danger of explosion. Investigator Matt Yarborough said he received a telephone tip the late afternoon of February 3 that the activity was taking place at the residence of Carissa Rousseau, 22, on Ben Rowe Circle. Several occupants ran from the area when he and Deputy Chad Montean approached, and Ms. Rousseau initially denied any illegal activity was taking place there. She agreed to allow the investigator a cursory search inside for the safety of the children, and he spotted two spoons with suspected meth on a closet shelf, plus nearby syringes and a plastic band. That prompted a quest for a search warrant that was soon obtained and the second search turned up processed meth in a baby wipe container amid baby products. spoons and syringes, other drug paraphernalia including a weighing scale and two Xanax pills. Ms. Rousseau, whose live-in boyfriend is in custody on meth-related charges, was booked for possession of both meth and the prescription pills, possession of drug equipment and child neglect. Ashley Abbott, 24, of Glen St. Mary, said to be living at the residence as well, was charged with possession of meth and paraphernalia. Others at the address that evening 27, and Kayla Flynt, 23, both of Macclenny, and Bruce Clough III, 24, and were not charged.

City officials acknowledged that they made a mistake assuming that only three zoning board members were required cial business, when, in fact, a city ordinance has required four members to be present at every meeting since 1999. Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough accepted the blame for the oversight during a meeting of the city commission on the evening of February 11. We found out something we didnt realize, Mr. Yarborough told commissioners. The meeting we had (on February 3) is null and void. Weve got to do a re-do. The city will have to re-advertise the same two cases the zoning panel heard on February 3 and conduct another hearing, probably sometime in March, In one case, the board approved a request for a zoning variance from American Enterprise Bank to place a new sign 5 feet from the right-of-way in front of the bank at 839 S. 5th St. Ordinarily, the minimum setback requirement for signs are 10 feet. But it was the other case that generated the most controversy when Ghandi Ayoub, owner of Smoker Friendly at 101 S 6th St., asked the board to approve his application to rezone his business as a liquor store, rather than a convenience store. Mr. Ayoub told the board that he had contacted the state Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco and was told another liquor license was available in Macclenny and he planned to buy it. The zoning panel denied the I knew there had to be a better way to do this.Randy SmithHair Care Hideaway InventorS ee page 7 S ee page 4 F ebruary 14-16F riday: 9 am 2 pm S chool tours S aturday: 9 am 2 pm Campsites open 10:30 am Parade in L ake City 3:30 pm Battle re-enactment (small) Sunday: 9 am 12 pm Campsites open 12:30 am Period music concert 1:30 pm M ain battle re-enactment

Page3F E BR UA R Y 13, 2014 Page 2 T B C P ursday, February 13, 2014 LIKE US ONFA CEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSIONCV S pulls smokes from shelvesCVS pharmacy made waves last week by announcing its plans to pull cigarettes from its stores, so we went to Facebook to ask readers about the move. Heres a look at the responses: Theresa Rhoden: If they are going to stop selling cigarettes, maybe they should stop selling alcohol too. Marc Lyon: CVS carries three products that are detrimental to peoples health. One causes 30 drunk driving deaths daily and another one (candy) causes more cases of diabetes and obe sity than there are cases of smoking related lung cancer. But those two are popular among society. The one you ban the sale of? The one that is frowned upon by society. If I understand their position correctly, they are banning selling cigarettes because selling them is inconsistent with their intended purpose of helping customers have a better path to a healthy lifestyle, but will they still happily take the money of an obese person who comes in to buy a 5-pound bag of Hersheys Kisses ... Ya think? Colleen Scharphorn Harvey: If they are that concerned about health, are they pulling the beer too? If youre go ing to be a health conscious store, go big or go home. Richard Clark: They and their stock holders own that business. They can sell whatever items the choose. Robert Thompson: They, just like all the others, devote a very small part of the store to medicine. The rest of it is junk that youd be crazy to buy there. James Clay Rhoden: I am okay with the removal however the reasoning be hind it leaves something to question. If they want to be a health related business then go all out and be that type of business. To me its no dierent than to drink, smoke and curse all week then show up in church Sunday morning. Just as hypocritical! Mike Wyland: People will praise this. I dont care either way. Everybody is a fan of telling other people what they can and cant do until its them be ing told no. Thats whats coming folks. Keep taking away other peoples rights to do what they want, just dont whine when its you being told no. Miranda Williams: Pull the alcohol o the shelf too! Christopher Apromollo: All for the removal of cigarettes, but if they take away something you use then its a travesty. Chuck-Alisha Redding: I think its great! How can a health store sell products that are unhealthy? Mixed message! Good for CVS for clarication on what they are promoting! Jim Nickles: Its their store; they can sell or not sell whatever products they wish. If we dont like it, shop some where else. Quite simple. Sheina Deyoung: I dont buy them there anyway, so it doesnt aect me. James Clay Rhoden: True Richard Clark, they can, but when Chik-Fil-A and their stock holders choose some thing they wish it becomes unrealistic? The best thing about it all is we can choose to be patrons of any establishment. So with that theory, it again brings Sunday liquor sales back up? Lol. James R. Hart Sr.: Good for them for taking peoples health over prot! April Waddell: Great! If they are so about health then they should pull the pizzas they sell and lets not forget the donuts and candy isle ... also the fake Heavy Western Boneless BeefRIBEYESWEETHEARTSTEAKSUSDA Inspected Fresh Pork Single SlabBABY BACK RIBSHeavy Western BonelessBEEF CHUCK ROASTUSDA Inspected CHICKEN STIR FRYor CutletsHeavy Western Lean & Tender BEEF STEWor Cubed Chuck Steak 1 LB.

Hickory SpringsSMOKED SLICED BACON$349 Last Thursday night I came home from Broadway in Baker rehearsals and there it was the Holy Grail of television in the World According to Bob. Thats right, the Olympic Games were on. I immediately texted my boys Olympics NBC. Within seconds, I got the same response What? How? The opening ceremonies were still a day away, but some of the events started early. Womens moguls, team ice skating and snow boarding all began the day before the opening. Within minutes, the guys were all home piled up in the living room. lowy guys in sparkly costumes spun and twisted through the air. The Russian star, Yevgeny Plushenko, lived up to his rock star status and got the Russian crowd rocking as he turned in a nearly Not so American Jason Brown, who took a tumble early into the start of his routine. That was pretty pitiful, said son Spencer. He was probably just out there fooling around since the opening ceremony isnt until tomorrow, said son Dylan. Yeah, nobody told him that the competition has started, said Spencer. He still think its practice. I can hear him going back to his coaches, said Dylan. Dude, its a good thing this was just warm-up and didnt count. ed to eat the ice like that when it really counted. What? Huh? What do you mean that were competing? Dude, the games havent even started yet. I was just messing around. No way! That was for real? Though we kidded about it, American snow boarder Ty Walker was really worried. She was injured in an opening round the day before the ceremony and scared that shed miss everything. I got hurt before it started. Am I still an Olympian? Yes Ty, you are. She marched in on crutches. A few minutes after the skating were watching American snow Hey, said Spencer. Go back. Check it out, hes got his cell phone in his pocket. Sure enough, clearly outlined in the pocket of his competition uniform is his cell phone. I wish it would go off while he was competing. Hed probably answer midway through a trick and start You Tubing the run. I wouldnt be surprised if he Tweeted just before coming down the hill, said Spencer. Sure enough, I found out later that he did. I love the Olympics because as serious as it is to the athletes taking part, it also has its goofy side as well. At the opening ceremony, one of the mechanical Olympic rings didnt open up. It was clearly visible to everyone outside of the home country of Russia. In Russia, the television company showing the coverage intercut a scene from the rehearsal so that it worked perfectly. Theres Russia for you. The lone athlete from Paraguay marched in, happily waving her grew up in Wisconsin. She doesnt speak a word of Spanish, but wanted to compete in the Olympics. Whether youre actually from a country isnt really all that important if youre a good athlete. If I was an Olympic quality athlete I couldve competed for Great Britain if I couldnt cut the US team. My grandmother was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. Some stuff was very serious, however. The luge track was slowed by 10 mph from a top speed of 95 mph to 85 mph because a compet itor died at the last Olympics when he went hurtling off the track. The downhill skiing competition is so fast that competitors are traveling at 70 mph within four seconds of leaving the gate. Thats as fast as the acceleration on a Ferrari. Yikes! Im settling in for two weeks of Olympic sports. MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERR OBERT GERARD The Olympics are sure to also have a goofy sidediet aides (false advertisement). Dont really care because CVS is too expensive anyway! Robert Phillips: Cigarette prices at CVS are too high so I dont buy them anyway. Charles Kemp: All should follow suit. Cigs kill people. They are no good. I hope all stores nationwide quit selling them. Chuck Copeland: How long will it last? Cigarette sales are big money. A year maybe? Sammi Younkers: Its going to suck for the smokers who live in Baker Manor who dont have cars. Pat Pourbaix: I gladly support CVS for taking a stand on not selling cigarettes. Hope others will follow suit. Christopher Brown: Noticed it was only in the US. Thing is, if you want to limit choice to the consumer, that is your business. I prefer Walgreens any way. If I were a shareholder, Id prob ably be against this move.N o more liquor stores in the city?After the Macclenny Zoning Adjustment Boards denial of a plan to establish a fourth liquor store in the city, we wondered what readers though of the decision (the vote was actually void because the panel lacked a quorum. See related story on the front page for details). Heres some of the reactions we saw: Amy Luding Williams: My husband and I thought about opening a cool pub/restaurant in Macclenny. We want to introduce Macclenny to the big world of craft beer. But neither of us want to deal with the no alcohol is sue on Sundays and the country politics that go along with it. Nick Mercorella: Free enterprise is a basic American principle. People who ask what good will come from this are missing the point. As long as they dont break the law, what they do with their business is their business. Too many people dont know how to mind their own. NormaJean AndJoe: It doesnt matter who sells it, or how many people sell it, if someone wants to buy liquor, they are going to buy it. I know Baldwin gets a lot of sales on Sunday because Baker chooses not to sell on Sunday. Anna Denise Lewis: I dont drink but I think it is ridiculous that we are a dry county, mostly because of the religious people in this town. No big restaurants want to come here because we are a dry county. My opinion is just because they serve it on Sunday doesnt mean you have to participate in drinking it. I dont tell yall that yall cant go to church on Wednesdays and Sundays. Its none of my business. So how are you going to tell me I cant buy alcohol on Sundays? What I do is none of your business. And if you dont want to see somebody drinking on Sunday at a restaurant then dont go eat there. Curtis Tharpe: I think having a fourth package store would be good. Walmart has a liquor store and that doesnt keep people from shopping there. This man is trying to make a liv ing. He may hire more people if this were to pass. Jason Knabb: I agree with the board. I went in there one time and they were displaying glass crack bottles on the shelf. Thats the only clue I need that its a bad environment. Therefore I completely agree with the board on the denial. James Clay Rhoden: It is a proven fact that by limiting the hours of sales does reduce the chances of binge drink ing and alcohol related problems and so does limiting the days. Susan Ward: Thats ne with me. We already have too many places that sell alcohol already. We dont need any more.

We post reader questions periodically as well as break ing news and links to content at www. bakercountypress.com.Methheads gaining on the pillheadsWhen Macclennys equivalent of the Mayo Clinic for pain pills was shut down in late 2011, I was in a conversation that went something like this: Well, that should make it harder for the druggies for a while ... Thats what you think. came the retort. Theyll replace it with meth. And they did. bile meth lab. A man known for drug use was stopped while driving in Glen St. Mary with all the ingredients for a nice, hazy batch of methamphetamine in his vehicle. And there were small children in the car with him. Since then, the scene has repeated, kind of like the ice cream trucks of old that rolled through the neighborhoods with ambeckoned us kids to run after them with quarters in our sweaty hands. Except the risk of exploding ice cream trucks was miniscule. And what they sold use, transforming us into zombies. Ice cream can, I suppose, rot ones teeth but not as fast or completely as methamphet amine. Youll also notice a spike recently of meth manufacturing in houses and mobile homes scattered throughout the county. In an alarming number of locations raided by police, young children always seem to be present. That fact is itself de monstrative of how addictive it is, that the parents (few of them are actually married) have no concept of what they are doing to offspring they brought into the world. The day their houses or cars are raided should be the last day they have custody of those children. When one considers the methheads they catch are likely only a minority of actual users, one realizes the prediction was valid. Theyve replaced the pillheads.

In that way, the Hideaway is a replacement for a standard-sized medicine cabinet. The unit fits into the wall and features two large appliance holders for a blow dryer and curling iron as well as smaller storage space for a beard trimmer. Below each compartment at the bottom of the cabinet are covered holes where the appliances power cords feed into tubes. The cords are connected to weights that retract them after use. The cabinet, which measures 19 inches tall, 15 inches wide and 4 inches deep, has a power outlet mounted inside that requires some wiring upon installation. The cabinet has a beveled mirror on the exterior. Mr. Smith, a Jacksonville native who moved to Macclenny at age 5, designed the prototype at home back in 2008 and paid about $3000 to have it built in Oviedo, FL in Seminole County. After some final design tweaks, like extending the tubes and adding the tube caps, the only barrier to largescale manufacturing was cash, so it took some additional time to build up the capital. The biggest part was that I didnt have a bunch of mon ey to invest in it to do it all at one time, Mr. Smith said. The people I talk to today tell me they can go from a concept to a finished product in six months time. But because I had to build up cash and doing it on my own, it took longer. Now hes working on marketing the product. Its all about advertising at this point. And adver tising is expensive, said Mr. Smith, who recently appeared on WJXTs (News4Jax) Local Look segment with Karen Adams promoting the Hideaway. The product will also appear later this year on the DIY network, a cable home improve ment station. Moving forward I have to be very creative on how it goes to market and avoid getting into a hurry at this point, he said. I have a business plan to where, at this point, if I dont sell a single cabinet, its financed for a year sitting in the warehouse. If I sell cabinets, that changes everything. To make that happen, hes approached various buyers, including Interline Brands and Costco. It could be on the shelves within the year. All these companies are at the reviewing stage, he said. It wouldnt take but one or two of these guys to come on board to be successful. Doing so is easier said than done, however, for a new product like the Hideaway. Retailers are happy to buy products that they know will sell. If its a new product to market, theyre cautious, he says. Mr. Smith also offers the product for sale online and will have them available at a Macclenny hair salon that rents space in his building. He has plans for additional products from his company, American Hideaway, Inc., as well. Mr. Smiths advice for other inventors: beware of companies selling services to inventors. Save the money and do it yourself, he recommends. trespass and theft of a phone following an incident involving an estranged girlfriend in the late afternoon of February 3. Deputy Koty Crews said Amber Reynolds, 26, hailed him at the Exxon Store on South 6th about 5:30 and said she had been accosted by Mr. Dow near her Maple St. residence. He allegedly attempted to pull her from a vehicle being driven by Jerry Johns Jr., 25, of Macclenny, then snatched her cell phone before riding off on a bicycle. Deputy Johnny Hodges stopped the suspect on South 6th near McIver a short time later. The pills, both anti-anxiety and pain killers, were found in Mr. Dows pants pocket during a routine search. Deputy Crews noted in his report that Mr. Dow is a pharmacy technician at CVS. The trespass charge is the result of an earlier order banning him from Ms. Reynolds property.

MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Ice, once again, was a major topic of discussion during a recent county commission meeting. And the subject had nothing to do with recent freezes or global warming. The issue was all about how much the county has spent on ice in the past and what can be done to reduce the expense in the future to ensure that outdoor county work crews have plenty of cool water to drink. Instead of buying or leasing ice making equipment, as was discussed last month, commissioners voted on February 4 to accept a recommendation from the county manager to continue buying bagged ice. However, a new vendor will sell the bags of crushed ice at a much reduced price than the county has been paying in years past, County Manager C.J. Thompson told commissioners. Mr. Thompson reported last month that the county had spent about $10,000 with Reddy Ice in the past two years, at $1.76 per bag. After a story ran in The Baker County Press on January 30 about the ice controversy and tion and ice-making machinery, Mr. Thompson said he received a couple of offers from interested ice suppliers. The most attractive offer, Mr. Thompson said, came from Jeremy Walker, owner of C&W Ice, who quoted prices ranging from 80 cents for a 10-pound bag to $1.15 for bags weighing 22 pounds. Mr. Walker offered to furnish the county a refrigerated storage box in the road department building and said he would deliver ice any day of the week. Mr. Thompson said the countys tab for ice last year came to $4,197. Buying the same amount of ice with the reduced price would save the county about $2,950, he said. Its a very substantial sav ings, he told commissioners. That would be staffs recommendation. Commissioner Adam Giddens said he had no idea the county was spending so much money on ice and was glad to hear that a better deal had been offered. I didnt realize we were using that much, he said. Thats a lot of ice. It (C&W Ices offer) sounds good to me. Commissioner James Croft, who originally suggested researching ways to reduce the countys ice expenditures, im mediately moved to accept the offer and Mr. Giddens seconded the motion. Without further discussion the board unanimously approved the deal. Commissioners had previously decided against the more expensive option of buying an tion system, which Mr. Thompson said would be needed to purify water at the road depart ment building due to its high iron and sulfur content. In other business on February 4 commissioners: ment with Trane Building Ser vices to maintain and service air conditioning equipment at the county courthouse.

The incident result ed in a two-hour search of the area in downtown Glen St. Mary agencies before they concluded there was no evidence that anyone had been struck by the westbound train about 4:40 that morn ing. Bruce Clough III, 24, who lives on nearby Lincoln Ave., was initially questioned near the scene by Deputy Koty Crews and denied knowledge of the incident. The same deputy interviewed him again, this time at Macs Liquors in Macclenny, three days later after receiving a tip that Mr. Clough had bragged about the madcap prank and the result ing reaction by authorities. Engineer Gary Miller, 42, a north Glen resident, told police he activated emergency brakes after seeing a male lying on the tracks. The person quickly arose when the engineer estimated he was only about 40 yards away, and Mr. Miller said he felt a thud similar to that when engines strike deer.

City Attorney Frank Maloney informed city commissioners that prior to the ordinance changes in 1999, zoning appeals were taken to the city commission. But in addition to the new quorum require ments, the appeals process was changed to require disgruntled applicants to go directly to circuit court for relief. There is no appeal to this board, Mr. Maloney said. Is there nothing we can do about it? Mayor Gary Dopson asked. Pass a new ordinance, the attorney replied. Well, we need to look at doing it, the mayor said, adding it would be foolish to face court and lawyer time someone objects to a decision of the zoning board. I think it (ap peals) should come to this board Although he has been on the city commission for about 25 years, Mayor Dopson said he was not aware it (zoning appeals) went straight to the legal system. Even if the city commission heard appeals, however, the mayor said the board very likely would not overrule its unpaid, volunteer zoning adjustment panelists. Rather than change the appeal process right away, however, City Manager Phil Rhoden said he has asked the city attorney to begin attending Zoning Adjustment Board meetings to offer legal guidance and advice and make sure all decisions are legally defensible. Mr. Yarborough, who joined the city hall staff 11 years ago, said he discovered the oversight after the February 3 zoning adjustment board meeting when he began researching the appeals process. Thats when he learned that the procedures were revised 15 years ago. Most of the boards decisions have been favorable to applicants over the years and those who were denied never raised a fuss, Mr. Yarborough said, addUntil the past few months, zoning board meetbers, Mr. Yarborough said. But two members recently resigned Dennis Collins and Alex Robinson leaving only three remaining until this week. Commissioners appointed a fourth member at the February 11 meeting, Pam Lyons, a retired registered nurse, to serve a three-year term on the zoning panel, which hears requests for zoning changes and special exceptions. Zoning Coordinator Mike Walker told commisBut at least now, he said, the zoning board will have a quorum. Meanwhile, Mr. Ayoub said he had been contacted by the city to tell him what had happened and that a new hearing will have to be conducted on his application. He said he hopes for a different outcome the second time around, but if not he has a lawyer waiting to take it to a higher authority if necessary.

ursday, February 13, 2014 T B C P Page 9 Page 8 T B C P ursday, February 13, 2014JOEL ADDINGT ONMANAGING EDIT OR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Clinton Foundation has selected five counties in Northeast Florida, including Baker County, as one of four community transformation sites nationwide involved with the foundations latest project, the Clinton Health Matters Initiative. The initiative is the latest effort to surface targeting the region because of its often poor health outcomes and the health disparities here, whether between races, counties or even among different zip codes within the same county. Its the only one, however, financially backed by a former presidents philanthropic foundation. Ashley Smith-Juarez, the regional director for the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, said the five-to-seven-year project aims to reduce the prevalence of certain chronic but preventable health conditions like diabetes, heart disease and lung ity gaps and reduce healthcare costs overall by promoting wellness and prevention programs. We absolutely want people to have high-quality care and access to care when they need it, but if there are things we can do through environ mental changes or personal changes, those are things we want to help facilitate, she told the group gathered at last Mondays Healthy Baker meeting, where various members of public and private health-related organizations operating in Baker County regularly gather. The initiative began last summer and remains in the planning phase. Ms. Smith-Juarez said a brain-storming meeting last December with some 175 community stakeholders, including Baker County Health Department director Kerry Dunlavey and Terrenia Staier, the departments administration ser vices director, helped identify action steps that will make up the initiatives blueprint or strategic plan for Northeast Florida. Those steps should be finalized for release this April. Nationally, theres work ongoing as well, including a code-athon series in partnership with tech companies like Tumblr and Jawbone. In the series, computer programers are developing health promo tion technologies, namely mo bile applications that address one or more of the myriad factors that the initiative cites has determinants for health outcomes. Those factors include an individuals income, the built and natural environment in which they live, their education and employment status, in addition to more health-related factors like eating, exercise and sleeping habits. Ms. Smith-Juarez said the initiative aims to build sustainable partnerships across geographies and sectors that will stand the test of time, so when the initiative ends, the collaborations will continue and hopefully bring about positive changes to the regions health outcomes in the long term. There are three other community transformation sites involved with the initia tive. Theres one in southern California, another in central Arkansas around Little Rock and a third in the area surrounding Houston. Strategies found to be effective in one place could benefit populations elsewhere by scaling them up or down, or by tweaking them to address local conditions, said Ms. SmithJuarez. We can look at health outcomes, but whats leading to those outcomes may be very different for different people in different places, she said. For instance, when a com munity in Chattanooga, Tenn. lost its only source of fresh fruit and vegetables after the local Food Lion store shuttered, it took just six months for the YMCA along with local and national food charities to launch a mobile market to serve the community. They talked with residents to find out what they wanted to buy and a trailer arrives at a predetermined location twice a week, said Ms. Smith-Juarez. They nearly eliminated the food gap. You can bring ideas from all over the United States, added Ms. Dunlavey. In other health-related news from the Healthy Baker meeting: ment of Health celebrating its 125th year, the county department on West Lowder Street will host activities on February 20 beginning with a 10 am viewing of an event in Tallahassee marking the occasion. There will also be a story board on the local departments history, beginning with the Yellow Fever outbreak in the late 1800s. directors appointed Lori Hodges, a data collector with the National Childrens Study, to the governing panel. She replaces Sue Combs. for the companys decision to pull tobacco products from its stores. That is fabulous, said Ms. Dunlavey. It will cost them millions but its a victory for public health. Pam Jeralds, the departments tobacco cessation coordinator, said the high schools Students Working Against Tobacco club, or SWAT, are planning a letter writing campaign to thank the company. The health department will also host a free, one-day tobacco quitting class from 10 am to noon on March 8. Nicotine supplements will be available to participants at no charge.

Both organizations are nonprofits contracted by the Florida Department of Children and Families, but Partnership for Strong Families of Gainesville manages the foster care system in 13 North Florida coun ties. River Region, meanwhile, provides substance abuse and mental health services from offices in Macclenny. Ms. Vann, the partnerships recruitment specialist, was among about a dozen people representing various local or ganizations invited by River Region to attend the February 5 meeting at the Ag Center. The goal of the meeting, River Region officials said, was to exchange information with other groups who work with similar populations, usually low-income residents struggling with drug addiction, mental health disorders or both. Doing so can help identify gaps in services or improve coordination between organizations, they said. River Region currently has about 160 clients in Baker County. Ms. Vanns comments, which came at the end of the meeting following a presentation from area domestic abuse shelter Hubbard House, were met with surprise by other attendees. Thats disturbing, said River Regions Linda Gibson. Part of the problem may be the lengthy approval process. Ms. Vann said it can take up to six months for the state to certify a new foster family, a process that includes classes and background checks. Plus, she said, the public image of Floridas foster care system is often a bleak one. Its usually the stories of abuse within the system that get the most attention, but Partnership for Strong Families community relations director Jenn Petion says across the agencys 13 counties a shortage has been created because children are being adopted out of the system. Here however, thats only half the problem. Since the partnership took over child welfare services in the county in 2010, the number of licensed foster homes has dropped from six to one, partly because of higher standards for foster families put in place by the partnership. In the last three years or so, Ms. Petion said three of the six homes were closed for that reason. We raised the bar for what we expect out of a licensed care giver, she said. We expect them to be willing to work with the birth family, to have a smoother transition for the child. They are the intermediaries in some ways between the family and the formal [foster care] system. Licensed foster homes have to abide by stringent rules, like testing for radon or agreeing to health department inspections. Not all the homes [in Baker County] were ready to take on that challenge, said Ms. Petion. A fourth foster family moved out of the county and yet another dropped out of the program voluntarily after children were adopted, she said, leaving the last licensed foster family of the six the partnership inherited from its predecessor, Baker & Clay Kids Net, Inc., now Kids First of Florida, Inc. The partnership wants to license five more foster homes here, including two as specialty care homes for children with medical or behavior problems. Any more would be won derful but five is really our goal, said Ms. Petion. She said the partnership is currently working with 51 Baker County children and their parents, 37 of whom are under full-time case management and supervision and 14 others who receive some support but not full blown case management oversight. She said 21 of those children were removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. In the majority of those cases, the kids were placed with rela tives, which are preferred over foster homes, though the partnership does not license them as foster homes. If we cant [place children with family] then licensed care is the last resort, said Ms. Petion. There are seven local children in the licensed homes, four of which are outside the county in specialized foster care. Partnership for Strong Families recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and rededicated its efforts to supporting foster care in its outlying counties like Baker. Boosting training and child care assistance for foster families in those areas and en gaging those communities is the aim, the partnerships Ms. Vann said. This time of year, near the holidays, is when the need for foster care is greatest, she said.

Among the other groups represented at the meeting, the Northeast Florida Community Action Agency is releasing applications for its summer Data Busters program, which gives low-income teens an opportunity to work in clerical jobs, learn basic computer skills and win prizes at the end of the program.

A real challenge occurs when children prepare to express their knowledge in front of an audience. Some students overcome their initial fear of pub lic speaking more easily than others. The emphasis of the program is on the growth of every student participant. It is important for all young students to have an opportuni ty to take pride in the expres The program is designed to give youth experience in the preparation and delivery of a for youth ages 8-18 (3rd grade th grade).

VP/ADA/EA/EO College in Education and Employment JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comBCHS football star Michael Boone signed his national letter of intent to commit to the University of Cincinnati during National Signing Day on February 5. The senior athlete committed to becoming a Bearcat in front of his family and Wildcat teammates during a signing ceremony held at the schools auditorium. He said the day was a once-in-a-lifetime expe rience. To see all your hard work pay off and have something like this happen, it really is a dream come true, Boone said. Ive never experienced anything like this before. Its amazing. Boone was originally committed to Florida International nati made him change his commitment. He said the coaching staff and the brotherhood among the players was the key to become a Bearcat. Wildcat coach Joey Sulkowski said Boone was ceiver in school history during the ceremony. The First-Team All-First Coast receiver caught a school-record 63 passes during his senior year for 1,181 re ceiving yards. He was also dangerous in the return game with more than 2,000 all-purpose yards and 22 touchdowns. Although he wowed crowds on Friday nights as a receiver, Boone was recruited as an athlete and said the Bearcats are leaning toward playing him at running back. He said he would welcome a position switch and would do whatever it takes to Boone said hes looking forward to getting his degree in either sports psychology or communications while getting to play in front of the big crowds of the American Athletic Conference on Saturdays. But before he starts the next chapter of his life, he still has rizon. He has plans to end his high school career in a big way. Im looking to win state in the triple jump and go out with a bang, Boone said.

JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS tennis team dropped its first meet of the season when the boys fell 2-5 and the girls lost 0-3 to Bishop Snyder on February 6. The boys team went 2-3 in singles matches with Tyler Curry edging out a 9-7 win and Logan Campbell running away with an 8-1 victory. Jared Stafford came up short on a close 6-8 loss, Evan Barrett fell 4-8 and Brach Dukeman was de feated 8-1. Only one of the two scheduled boys doubles matches was able to be played as rain forced the second match to be canceled. Stafford and Dukeman lost 0-8 in the match that was played. On the girls side, Tristan Lauramore was defeated 1-8 and Kate Whitehead lost 0-8. The two girls teamed together in the only girls double match and fell 0-8. Head coach Jonathan Barrett said the one-sided results didnt accurately reflect his teams talent. Unfortunately, our results dont mirror the players abilities, he said in an e-mail. Ability-wise, I feel we had the better team going into the match. We certainly have things to work on, but overall, I am very proud of my team and what they accomplished on Thursday. The tennis team had a chance to bounce back from its opening meet loss on February 11 (see next weeks edition for results).

The junior lifter broke her own school record with a 295 total to earn a medal at state. She tied her school records with a 135-pound bench press and a 160-pound clean and jerk to set the new total mark for the 129 class. We were very, very excited, head coach Scott McDonald said. It was awesome to see her go out and compete like that. Coach McDonald said the top two lifters in the division were both seniors and they ran away with their spots, but it left a logjam of about 12 girls competing against each other. Perry-Ruiz was right there along with everyone and she competed hard to make history, the coach said, and it could ing years. It should let these girls know what were doing works, coach McDonald said. It shows these young ladies its possible. In addition to Perry-Ruizs school record performance, Mackenzie Hand also had a good showing at state in the 154 class with a 270 total. Coach McDonald said she attempted her personal bests in both the bench press and clean and jerk, but she was unable to complete the lifts. He said he is proud of the effort both Hand and Perry-Ruiz put in during the state competition. They went down there just like a Wildcat should and showed out for their school, Coach McDonald said.JON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.com ance in more than a decade came to an end on February 6 with a 64-36 loss at Palatka in the Class 5A The Lady Cats had a tough time stopping Palatkas 63 low-post powerhouse Jonell Williams. She dominated the boards offensively as she outmatched anything the defense tried doing to stop She was unstoppable, said head coach Chris Chisholm. We didnt have nothing to match up with her. Shes a very skilled player. The Lady Cats were competitive through much last long, however, as the Lady Panthers went on scoring seven points off three turnovers in about a minute. The scoring run gave Palatka a seven point halftime edge. The Lady Panthers pulled away in the second half as Williams dominance down low opened up shooting opportunities on the outside for their other shooters. When we doubled [Williams], we were hoping their other players would have an off night, but they didnt, coach Chisholm said. When they started hitting the outside shots, we just couldnt match up with them. Baker County was outscored 20-2 in the third quarter, with the only points coming from two of Delicia Washingtons team-high 20. The team also committed six turnovers that helped Palatka get easy shots on the offensive end. Palatka slightly padded its lead in the fourth quarter to seal the win and advance to play Bishop The playoff loss ended a late-season surge that saw the Lady Wildcats win 10 out of their 14 games in 2014, which included a six-game winning streak to end the regular season. Coach Chisholm said he is proud of the way his young team, which started two sophomores and a freshman, responded in the second half of the season after getting off to a slow start. They came together as a team and worked really hard, he said. They understood what the coaching staff was trying to teach them and Im very proud of them. The playoff loss didnt discourage the Lady harder for next season. After the game, the girls were already talk ing about next season and working this summer, coach Chisholm said. Thats something you look forward to as a coach. The next three years are going to be bright.

Winter, summer, para, any me. The whole idea of compet ing for your country appeals to me. I can think of nothing athletically to match what it must feel like to stand up on that podium and see your that national anthem playing. Athletes made of stern stuff dissolve into tears. It is the culmination of years worth of work. So much time, effort, money, injury, sweat and tears goes into the two weeks of competition that is the Olympics. Oftentimes, the sports being contested are ones we in the USA barely know exist. But for other countries they are national obsessions. I watched the biathlon competition on Saturday. It requires cross country skiing and precise target shooting from a prone and standing position. In other words, athletes heart rates go through the roof as they ski up and down hills and then for the time it takes to shoot, they have to control their shaking limbs and labored breathing. Its fascinating, but an event only for Winter Olympics. In Russia, however, it ranks just behind ice hockey as the countrys favorite sport. So the Russian fans were going crazy. The announcer, a biathlete himself, called it like it was the last thirty seconds of I got into it. The fact that the eventual Norwegian winner was in his mid-forties and the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time with 13 medals was even better. I have been unimpressed with NBCs coverage of the games. I know very little about any but the most famous of winter athletes, but NBC has not engaged us with pre-recorded stories about them. In the past I shun those vi gnettes because they focus on some tragedy the athlete is trying to overcome to get us to root for them, but Id like to know something about them. Another knock is I have yet to see a medal ceremony. Even the two American gold medal ists in snowboarding havent had their medal ceremonies shown in prime time. One of my favorite moments from the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver was skier Hannah Kearney dissolving in tears at the playing of the anthem. I feel cheated somehow. Get with the program NBC. F LROBERT GERARD Show the medal ceremonyJON SHUMAKESPORT S EDIT OR jonshu@live.comThe BCHS Wildcats had their district title dreams dashed in heartbreaking fashion when they fell 62-61 in overtime to the visiting Bishop 3-5A tournament on February 7. The Cats took a one-point lead with 20 seconds remaining in overtime when Charles Ruise Jr. hit 37 points. The teams defense held strong against Bishop Kennys initial attempt to regain the lead, but Baker County knocked the ball out of bounds when trying to get the rebound with about two seconds remaining. Bishop Kenny playmaker Christian Carlyle caught the ensuing in bounds pass and threw up a last-ditch shot attempt, but he was fouled in the process and went to the line for two free-throw shots. He drained both to give the Crusaders the 62-61 lead with about one second left in overtime as boos rained down from the Baker County faithful. It was a judgement call, Wildcat head coach Charles Ruise said about the game-changing foul. If he said it was a foul, it was a foul. We just have to do a better job picking up defensively in situa tions like that to eliminate the catch to close out the game. The Wildcats still had a slight hope as Jesse Gardner launched a three-quarter court shot that was almost on target, but it rimmed out and clinched Bishop Kennys district title win. But to even get to overtime, the Cats had to claw while they were unable to stop Bishop Kennys outside game. The Crusaders made six of their 11 halftime lead. Communication from the bench to the players on the court wasnt clear and it was causing some breakdowns, coach Ruise said. We felt like the kids were playing hard and well, but we just werent getting the ball in the basket and we had to get our defense in check. The Cats offense found its rhythm during the physical second half. six minutes of the third quarter to take a fourquarter. During the scoring run, Baker County won a scramble for the ball that resulted in a dog pile at half court that set the tone for the remainder of the game. We went in and we wanted to hold our own physically, coach Ruise said. We made some adjustments that led to some of that play. Although the Cats dominated the majority of the third quarter, the Crusaders recaptured a twopoint lead entering the fourth quarter with the help of a quick 8-3 scoring run at the end of the third frame. and neither squad managed more than a two-point advantage. Carlyle made a go-ahead shot on a tipin with 1:27 to give the Crusaders a two-point lead. Baker County quickly responded as Ruise sank a shot to tie the game. Gardner hit what would have been the gamewinning shot at the end of regulation, but the buzzer sounded before he released the ball. The referees waved off the shot and the game went into overtime tied at 53. Brandon Lewis scored six points in overtime to keep the Cats alive, but the late foul shots helped the Crusaders escape with the win. With the loss, the team has to travel to play District 4-5A champion Ponte Vedra on February 13 Wildcats had four players reach double-digit scoring to give the team a hard-fought 64-57 win over the Paxon Golden Eagles on February 5. to fall. Paxon took advantage of Baker Countys shooting woes and took a seven-point lead in the 10 shots from downtown. The Baker County squad fought back with an 11-5 run to tie the game at halftime. The Wildcats offense began shooting better put Paxon away. The Golden Eagles rallied from a shot of tying the game with 1:15 remaining. The Cats shooters responded to the pressure as Ruise nailed a shot to make it a two-possession game with a minute left. CeCe Jefferson slammed home the dagger about 30 seconds later to cap off his 16-point night and give the team a six-point lead. Ruise put the game out of reach with a freeish with a team-high 18 points. In addition to Ruises and Jeffersons impressive offensive performances, Brian Walton scored 12 points and Gardner added 10.

Pitcher Jordan Kennedy threw four no-hit innings and Mikal Flores went 2-2 at the plate with two walks to give the Cats the one-run win. They led by 2-0 in the seventh inning, but a series of defensive mistakes allowed the Cardinals to tie the game. The home squad was able to pull out the victory with a walkoff hit to end the game. The teams second pre-season game that was scheduled for the following Thursday was rained out, which left a lot of unanswered questions entering the February 11 season opener against Eagles View at FSCJ, coach Fred Matricardi said. I wish we saw more on Thursday, he said. We dont feel as prepared as we normally do because of the weather, but its something every team has dealt with. He said he hopes his team can pitch well and play defense and have the offense scratch a few runs across to win against Eagles View. See next weeks edition for coverage of that contest. Although the coaches didnt get the preseason time they desired, the team still looked improved from a preseason camp at Bolles in January. Coach Matricardi said he wants to see that improvement continue as the season progresses. If we drop a couple of games at the beginning of the season its not going to hurt us, he said. We just have to get better and improve as the season moves along to give us the chance at the end of the season.
