PHOTO COURTESY OF INSTAGRAM JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comTo say Samuel Allen doesnt like tobacco companies would be quite an understatement. Fighting them as been his lifes work. He is one of the most prominent antitobacco voices in the country and spoke March 20 to students at Baker County Middle School following up on Kick Butts Day March 19, a national observance on which Tobacco Free Florida, the Florida Department of Health and others join forces to encourage smokers to quit and youths not to start the habit. Mr. Allens passion for the anti-tobacco movement springs from his personal expe riences. Cigarettes, he says, killed his grandmother. I completely revolutionized my life when I was 14 or 15 years old, said Mr. Allen, founder of the first SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) club in Orlando. I sat with my grandmother as she had her oxygen mask on, and she would be breathing, and in between breathing she would lite up a Lucky Strike cigarette and smoke. He had just shot his first Truth commercial. The television ad campaign was funded by the tobacco industry itself, after tobacco companies lost a class action lawsuit in 1998 in Florida. Mr. Allen was excited to tell his grandmother about how youth across the country were coming together for a national anti-tobacco movement. It was this really cool, powerful moment, Mr. Allen told a group of seventh graders in the BCMS auditorium, just one group of students he spoke to that day. My grandma just kind of sat there, and she says, Thats real good baby. And she could barely breath because her lungs were fried from emphysema. Even on her death bed, she couldnt put down a cigarette. I said grandma, Im making waves right now. Im changing the way tobacco products are sold in the states. Were going to help save lives. And she said, Well they already got me baby. Two weeks later she was dead. Her death only fueled Mr. Allens commitment to fighting tobacco companies. The Orlando resident helped produce the first Truth ad, which he was in with other teens, and now works as a motivational speaker and a partner in a media and design firm, two pursuits he combined for his pre sentation last week. What if there was an industry that engineers a product that when used as intended kills. What if I told you there are people who are paid to study you. They want to know your likes and dislikes. They want to know what you think and why you think it ... And they are going to use that information to de sign a product that will ultimately kill you, said Mr. Allen.

Mr. Anderson, tired of hearing the bickering between the two groups, said at the March 18 commission meeting that he dispute after listening to more complaints from Travel Ball leaders Robert Davis and Clint Cooper for nearly an hour before the business meeting began. We cant beat this dog to death. Ive got a meeting to run, he said. I can guarantee you something will happen this week because Im going to be involved in it. I want it resolved. But Mr. Cooper, a coach and secretary of the Travel Ball Organization, said on March 25 that the way Commissioner Anderson tried to resolve the conflict was a little too onesided. He handled it by meeting with Jerry Carter (Little League president), Mr. Cooper said. He (Mr. Carter) relinquished and said theyre going to give us (Travel Ball teams) Fridays. The central issue all along has been a schedule that rele gated Travel Ball teams to the week Wednesday and Sun day. Mr. Cooper and Mr. Davis both objected to having their players limited to using the which they said was fundamentally unfair, while Little League teams were allowed days a week. Getting a third day each week is an improvement but so far we just have their word, Mr. Cooper said, noting that he and Mr. Davis have repeat edly requested a written policy statement or county ordinance specifying schedules for both sides. But just two days after re See page 2 JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR Brittany Lynn Hoatlin, 26, of Glen St. Mary was struck and killed by what witnesses said was a semi-truck at 8:34 p.m. Sunday night on U.S. 1 in Nassau County. The victim was standing in the outside travel lane just south of M. Sikes Road at the front left corner of a crashed vehicle she was a passenger in, in the southbound travel lane, according to the Florida High way Patrol. Thats when an unidentified orange tractor with a white trailer heading south on U.S. 1 swerved to avoid the crashed vehicle and hit Ms. Hoatlin. Witnesses said the tractor trailer stopped several hundred feet away and the driver exited the truck and started approaching the crashed vehicle, but turned back and drove away, FHP reported. Authorities were still searching for the tractor trailer early this week.Semi kills Glen womanAuditor: license records are lax JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker County school district hasnt been adequately checking bus drivers driving histories or promoting virtual class offerings as required by state laws and regulations, a state audit recently revealed. The annual review of district finances, policies and procedures by the Florida Auditor General was released March 10 and discussed, albeit briefly, during the school boards meeting the evening of March 17. District finance manager Marcelle Richardson said most of the audits findings were typ ical of those seen around the state and most of them have been addressed. Much of those there you probably wont see again, she told the board. Representatives from the Auditor General examined five of 11 bus drivers hired during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 fiscal years and found the district did not obtain and review the driver history records on four of them from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FDHSMV) prior to employment, as required by State Board of Education rules. The district did monitor two of the four drivers on a weekly basis to check if their drivers licenses were expired, suspend ed, revoked or accrued points, but did not monitor the other two. After auditors brought the compliance matter to district officials, a further review showed the two unmonitored drivers had licenses in good standing. The audit also showed that the state agencys driving histories of 10 of the 63 drivers hired prior to 2011-12 were not checked until 78 days after they PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON SWAT club founder Samuel Allen speaks to See page 2 See page 2

After making phone calls Commissioner Anderson, the other teams dispersed after about 10 minutes, Mr. Cooper said. County Manager C.J. Thompson said this week that he did not schedule a meeting between leaders of the two sports groups last week be cause Mr. Anderson told him later in the week that there was no reason for a meeting because it was resolved. The brouhaha between Litwent public during a county commission meeting on March 4, followed by a sequel last week when Mr. Davis and Mr. Cooper returned to reinforce their position that a formal, written policy should be adopted clearly detailing schedules. Little League, which has been around for more than four decades, has long enjoyed which the organization claims $40,000 in league funds in the past 10 years for equipment and maintenance. But as Travel Ball teams have grown in numbers in re cent years the two organizations have often argued over at certain times and days of the week. I want to bring to the forefront again the issue at hand that is yet to be resolved, Mr. Cooper told commissioners during the March 18 board meeting. BCLL (Baker County Little League) does not have the authority to delegate what, when, where and who can utilize our county facilities. This issue is far beyond a reconciliation between the two organizations ... for the short term solution as well as the long term solution, he said. The only thing that will resolve the dilemma is a written document, such as a county ordinance, that will govern the usage of these facilities, Mr. Cooper said. As of this week, however, the county manager said commissioners have not instructed him to draft any such document for consideration. One thing everyone has agreed on is the need for adin a sports complex elsewhere in the county. St. Marys River Shoals Park north of Glen St. Mary has been mentioned as an ideal site. Commissioner Adam Giddens announced last week that he had discussed with uniden ity of getting a big complex built for us soon, but did not reveal any details at that time. disease and cancer and the like Mr. Allen told the audience how tobacco companies specifically target them through strategic marketing of their products and noted how even though tobacco is legal, its more addictive and kills more people than illicit drugs like cocaine and heroin. The Truth campaign, after all, was not about telling teens to avoid smoking. Its not my job to tell you guys not to smoke. Ive trained over a million youths and Ive never told them, dont smoke. Never. When we started the Truth campaign and SWAT, the governor never said he wanted to create a dont smoke campaign. He wanted to expose this industry because we found documents that stated they were looking for teens. That teens are their primary source of replacement smokers. And I wanted teens to know theres an industry targeting them. Then you know, and you can decide whether to smoke or not smoke. But I wanted to take it a step further. I not only wanted teens to know, I wanted teens to get active. And they did. The speaker invited volunteers from the audience up into the front of the auditorium to play a quiz game about tobacco, in which students tested their knowledge about the in dustry, including which brand of cigarettes is the most known worldwide. The number one most recognizable brand in the world is Marlboro, he said. The number one most recognizable brand kills. Thats amazing. The most important part of his abbreviated presentation, which was cut short for times sake, was telling the kids that tobacco companies are actually not in the business of selling to bacco, he said. Mr. Allen said theyre actually a drug cartel whose sole purpose is to profit off nicotine addiction. Without nicotine, people would not need to smoke, he said before giving his impression of a smoker antsy and agitated before lighting up, and then getting calm and relaxed after the first drag. If I could take a pack of cigarettes, and liquify the amount of nicotine in one pack of cigarettes and inject it into your body, you would die immediately. Yet scientists get paid hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars to engineer this product. They put just enough nicotine in it to make sure you get addicted. He also urged students to join SWAT and to get involved in the fight against tobacco companies. All they care about is the green, said Mr. Allen. They dont care about your dreams, your visions, your hard work. They dont want none of that. All they say is use our product, use our product, use our product. After playing the first Truth commercial he helped produce for the campaign, depicting a flurry of teens talking directly to tobacco companies, including himself, Mr. Allen left the audience with a plea. Everything I said, go look it up. Anything I said that wasnt true, call me out on it. I dare you, he said. But dont fall for the hook.

To promote school bus safety and to reduce the risk of accidents caused by school bus drivers, it is important that district personnel timely review bus driver history records to ensure the drivers meet the requirements to operate school buses, reads the audit report. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson has said time and again how the safety of Baker County students are the districts highest priority. Her response to the audit findings regarding the lack or lateness of driver history checks on February 10, 2014: This district has enhanced its procedures by reviewing all FDHSMV driver history records prior to the first day of school. In addition, we will continue to monitor the weekly report sent by the FDHSMV on driver incidents. In recent years, the state legislature, governor and Florida Department of Education have been pushing for more school choice in Floridas K-12 educa tion system, including making virtual classes that deliver lessons via the Internet more available. It appears the school district has been offering virtual classes, but not encouraging them wholeheartedly, according to the audit. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, the district had 72 parttime VIP, or Virtual Instruction Program, students. State law requires that districts funnel information to parents and students about their rights to participate in VIPs, including timely written notification of open enrollment periods for VIPs. While the district paid for a small, one-week newspaper advertisement in The Press and maintained registration packets in school guidance de partments, auditors could not find evidence that written notifications were given directly to parents and students and that dates for open enrollment were not included in other communications. The audit also criticized the district for not offering virtual instruction below the sixth grade. Mrs. Raulerson, in her response to the audit findings, said the district plans to im prove its procedures to ensure timely written notification to parents about opportunities for students to participate in VIPs, and that VIP classes are being offered now for kindergarten through fifth graders. In other business during the March 17 school board meet ing, the majority of which was consumed with highlighting the achievements of middle and high school students for their academic and athletic achievements, the board: Heard from BCHS principal Thomas Hill that the share of high school graduates participating in accelerated course work like Advance Placement (AP) and honors classes roughly doubled between 2010 and 2012 to more than 50 percent of graduates. Donated two school buses to Northeast Florida State Hospital. Transportation director Johnnie Jacobs said the buses were not in good enough condition to be used by the district to transport students. They will not be leaving the hospital grounds with them, he said. Sold several pieces of food service equipment to American Recyling of Macclenny for $955. The company was the only bidder.

The premise of the social media activity comes from a 1984 internal document from R.J. Reynolds, the makers of Camel cigarettes, referencing younger adult smokers as the only replacement of current smokers, according to the re lease. The activity at BCHS was followed by other anti-smoking programs at the middle school and a SWAT kickball tourna ment in Jacksonville last Saturday. The press release said for each smoking-related death, at least two youth or young adults become regular smokers each day. These young people rarely consider the long-term health consequences of smoking when they start, it stated. Because of nicotine, a highly-addictive drug, three out of four youths continue smoking well into adulthood, often with serious and even deadly consequences.

Page3MARCH 27, 2014 I complained the other day that people are just too rude. I was driving home from work and someone cut me off and gave me a rude gesture when all I was doing was driving. Youre right, said my son Dylan. What we need are rules for etiquette for everyday stuff like riding on the lawn mower. What do you mean? I asked. Well, when youre riding on the lawn it is good etiquette to point the grass thrower away from your neighbors yard. Very good point. Any others? If you dont have the physique, dont mow without a shirt. I think that was probably directed at me, but Im not sure. Never mow early in the morning when you might wake people up. So true. And move cars before mowing near them so that you dont throw dirt and debris on them, I added. The world would be a bet ter place if we obeyed these simple rules. Hes right, of course. So I decided to extend the everyday rules of etiquette to more things, like riding in a car. My brother-in-law Todd Norman always had a strict set of rules when riding in his car. Never, never touch the glass. My children violated that rule, but only when his wife Debbie was driving them to day care. If the glass fogged over they drew happy faces and dinosaurs on it. I can imagine the response when Todd looked in his rear view mirror later in the day usually to which she would add, Well, Todd. Dont lean on the car, its waxed. That was in my direction after I made the mistake of leaning on the hood. Dont eat in the car, usu ger directed at my young sons who had a handful of Gummy Bears. your butt will follow. I kind of translated that Toddism into meaning, Keep your feet Dont let your butt chew up the seat. Try as I might, I could never translate that one. It was high up on the Todd lexicon though, so it must have meant something important. your tail will follow. That one had to do with merging into Words to live by. Doing laundry has its own set of etiquette, which I have learned the hard way. Never wash whites with reds, my wife would say as she picked up a pair of my underwear that had been turned pink by one of the boys red athletic socks. Always check pockets for pens, she would intone as she held up one of her good white blouses that was Dalmatianed with ink. Never put 100% cotton in the drier, she added as she held up one of her sweat stuffed animal. Come to think of it, just dont wash any of my clothes. Okay, I replied. I made so many of these gaffs in the 32 year course of our married life that my son Spencer was convinced I did them on purpose to get out of doing stuff. Not the case. Dressing has its own unique are obvious. Never allow your spouse to dress in the dark. If so, you will wind up with this conversation later in the day. You do realize that you have one black sock and one blue sock? Huh? I do, dont I. And a brown belt with black pants. Huh? I do, dont I. When asked the simple question, Does this make me look fat, always realize that this question only sounds that could blow up in your face. The answer is always, No. It looks great. When asked which shoes she should choose, always be positive. They both look good. Then choose one, but do not be offended when she picks the opposite. Thats just how it goes. Food also has etiquette. Never leave the cap off or too loose. Always, always put the top on the milk and put it back in the refrigerator and put your glass in the sink, said acquaintance Dianna Hinson. And dont double dip your knife in the butter or jam so you have crumbs in the butter, she added. She got a little mad about it when she said it so it must be a big deal in the Hinson household. LIKE US ONFACEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSIONLETTER TO THE EDITOR LPA rejects bid on rezoning of Camp TraceyThe countys Land Planning Agency rejected Camp Traceys bid to obtain the proper zoning for its plans to counsel adults with drug and alcohol addiction. Neighbors have voiced opposition to the plan, which will be considered by the county commission next month. What should county commis sioners do? Approve the new institutional zoning, which allows prisons as well, or deny Camp Traceys request? Barry Melton: It seems that neighbors in Baker tend to always voice oppo sition to everything. I live in that area and I dont oppose it at all. Will it create a few jobs? More importantly, will it help people? We need to collectively look at the big picture here. Our county is crippled and riddled with a large number of citizens with drug and alcohol dependency. Meth and prescription drugs have taken their toll on our county. If this can help our county and benet our people, I am baed why this would be rejected Rebecca Kite: I live near Camp Tracey and see no reason to say no to a counseling center there if it will help the countys residents. Penny Collins Dose: Do police need that hassle again. I think not. Mike De Baecke: There is always Celebrate Recovery, a program for those with any type of hurt,habit or hangup. Chuck Presnell: Well my wife and I live about a quar ter of a mile from Camp Trac ey and I say it is a bad thing for our neighborhood. A lot of the women are by themselves when their husbands are at work day and night, so how do you think they will feel. It did not work for the younger group so what make you think if will work for adults? They will be stuck out here with no way to get any where and they get ready to leave they will do anything to get out. Remember the Old Massey College in Jacksonville when they turned it in to a drug rehab center. It got so bad they would not let Channel 4 inside with their camer as. I say not in this neighbor hood.

The Harvest Baptist Church previously operated this same facility as a group home for troubled teens that was plagued with many problems for years such as child abuse and escapes. This resulted in Baker County as well as the Cuyler community does not need to be a dumping ground for the addicts of Jacksonville, many of which may end up residing in Baker County and will create further problems for the Baker County Sheriffs to the buying and selling of drugs and all the other crime associated with it. I urge all concerned citizens of Baker County and Cuyler to attend the county commission meeting on Tuesday, April 15 to speak out and let your commissioners know we do not want to be the dumping ground for the drug addicts of Jacksonville.Billy Boo Marsh CuylerDont re-open TraceySociety could use good dose of proper etiquette From Farrah Rays.

The grant, which is part of an overall $200,000 improvement plan for the park, requires $12,900 in-kind county match, which will come from the Shoals Park Timber Sales Fund. The scenic trail, which officials said would be about one-mile long, will extend from Odis Yarbrough Road at the entrance to the park grounds to a parking area and restrooms, then continue back to Odis Yarbrough. The countys environmental health di rector Terry Graham said after the meeting he hopes to gather community input regarding potential interest in using the park. Hes considering setting up an online poll to do so or soliciting comments through The Press Facebook page. The results will be used for the grant application, which is due by months end. In other business at the March 18 meeting, the board: Rejected all nine bids for the proposed Council on Aging Transportation Center, which came in substantially higher than expected, and agreed to seek new bids only for the building construction. County em ployees will be used for much of the site de velopment, including digging a retention pond, to reduce the overall cost. Only about $1.8 million remains in a federal grant for construction, whereas the bids averaged $3.4 million. Plans also will lower the cost, as well, Mr. Thompson said. It will be a slightly smaller facility, but it told commissioners Approved an agreement with the Flor ida Department of Transportation for the widening, resurfacing and other roadway improvements on County Road 125 from Park Street to CR 127. The project, a continuation of a similar project that was completed last year along CR 125 from Park Street to north of the county refuse station, will include paved shoulders, drainage improvements, new signs and guardrail upgrades. County commissioners were not pleased, however, to learn that the project will not extend southward into the Town of Glen St. Mary. This will not do. The edges of the road from Glen to Park Street are terrible, said Commissioner Mark Hartley. I agree with you, but this is what they (DOT) agreed to fund, County Manager Thompson said. Approved a $2,604.31 payment to the cial Law Enforcement Trust Fund to buy crime prevention and drug awareness sup plies to be used during community aware ness functions, according to a letter from The Glen St. Mary Town Council agreed during a very brief monthly meeting the evening of March 18 to approve what has become a standard pact with a property owner for extension of sewer lines to undeveloped property. By unanimous vote, the board will give Gary and Stacia Crummey ten years to de velop the remaining four lots on a tract bordered by Frank lin St., Lincoln St. and Taber Blvd if they want reimbursement for the nearly $19,000 they spent recently bringing the lines onto their property, For the present, two-sixths of that cost, or $6298, represents the reasonable esti mate of the cash outlay by the Crummeys for their two lots. If within the next decade the couple sells the four remaining parcels, Glen St. Mary agrees to reimburse them $3149 each. The town anticipates recovering that in fees. In other business during the seven-minute meeting, Glen approved a $4976 annual contract with the Florida Department of Transportation for lighting and maintenance along US 90 that bisects the town.

Sen. Charlie Dean (R-Inverness) is sponsoring or cosponsoring the following bills this session, many of which are moving through the committee process: SB 1576 would better protect the states springs and aquifer from common pollutants from agriculture production and failing septic systems. The legislation represents Sen. Deans commitment to protecting the states water resources, a goal he outlined when here late last year for the annual legislative delegation meeting. He serves as chair man of the Senate Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation. I have spent my entire life around Floridas beautiful springs, Senator Dean said in a recent press release on the bill. Protecting and preserving these natural treasures is one of my biggest priorities. We must ensure our future generations have the opportunity to ex perience these springs. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on this important proposal as we move ahead this session.

HB 355 would revise college and uni versity textbook affordability policies and procedures to include other instructional materials, including e-books and other digital instructional materials, and requires policies and procedures to be adopted by Florida College System institutions and state universities to ensure such materials are as affordable as possible. The bill would also require institutions to post online information on course schedule relating to required and recommended textbooks and the costs, including those for used or rentable textbooks. It calls for the governor and legislature to find ways to reduce student textbook costs and requires that colleges use the same editions of instructional materials for at least three years, unless they seek an exception.

Among the volunteers were those from Cub Scout Pack 555, who learned about environmental conservation and keeping their home county beautiful, and high school students seeking volunteer service hours. More than 500 people participated in the cleanup in four counties Baker and Nassau in Florida and Camden and Charlton in Georgia collecting more than 22,000 pounds of garbage, the most prevalent of which were Budweiser beer containers, said Greg Sheppard, who coordinated the cleanup here. He said normally the cleanup in Baker County nets 400-500 pounds of trash, but the high river elevation due to recent rains limited access to the rivers banks. The eort netted 250 pounds of refuse here this year. Among the more unusual items collected here was a burn barrel.

Governor Rick Scotts wife of 41 years read a story book to multiple groups of students there and took questions afterward. Mrs. Scott is pictured above reading with the help of second grader Sarah Dopson. The book was about a little lightning bug named Leo who overcame ridicule by his fellow light ning bugs to gain his self condence. I loved reading the story. It was a good lesson, she told the children after nishing the book. Governor Scott, meanwhile, was at a preschool in Jacksonville with the citys Mayor Alvin Brown touting the importance of early childhood education and his recent signing of legislation to reduce tag fees. Check out video of the rst ladys visit at JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comFlavored tobacco products and their marketing have the high schools Students Work ing Against Tobacco, or SWAT, club sounding the alarm. SWAT club members Madison Bechtel and Collin Crews presented at the March 13 Baker County Prevention Coalition meeting, warning some two dozen attendees to be on the look out for such products. The meeting of substance abuse counseling and mental health professionals and other community partners often focuses on the risks and effects of drug and alcohol use among youths, making it an appropriate venue for SWAT involvement. Ms. Bechtel said a quarter of Baker County youths ages 11 to 17 have reported trying flavored tobacco products, which are often flavored and packaged to resemble candy. They use candy and fruit flavors to mask the bad taste, she said, adding its also a strat egy for replacing dead customers with young ones. The students also briefed the group on another product they find troubling a so-called hooka pen. They said such devices electronically produce flavored water vapor, making their use nearly undetectable for faculty, and theyre being used at the high school today. Its illegal for those under 18 years old to possess tobacco products. When students are found with them, they are issued a civil citation. When asked about the consequences for students caught with hooka pens, Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson, who attended the meeting, said the penalty would be the same as if a student had tobacco products. An attendee from Northeast Florida State Hospital said the facility recently prohibited the use of electronic cigarettes at the south Macclenny campus.Purchase this photo at Photos by Joel AddingtonSWAT club members Collin Crews and Madison Bechtel speak on tobacco product marketing aimed at youths.Decries tobacco marketingMarch 26, 2014 Macclenny Elementary Just Say No Club 8:00 AM March 27, 2014 Baker County High SBall @ Bishop Kenny, 3:30 7:30 PM Wrestling banquet Auditorium, 7:00 PM Keller Intermediate Terric Kids, 9:30 AM Macclenny Elementary Terric Kids, 2:00 PM PK/Kindergarten Cr.

Mikal Flores connected with a walk-off hit to give the Wild cats a dramatic 6-5 come-frombehind home win on March 21 to close out the district schedule on a positive note.
