Investigator Matthew Yarborough stopped Tamera Courtney, 29, of Glen St. Mary when he saw she wasnt wearing a seat belt and had an unre strained 2-yearold in the back seat. Occupant William Cordle, 49, who had stuffed a bag into his pock et, produced the bag containing pseudoephedrine cough medicine. Inv. Yarborough then searched Ms. Courtneys car and found marijuana hidden in a cigarette box between the passenger seat and center conA quadrant of residents in northwest Macclenny were placed under a boil water notice triggered by a morn ing accident March 30 during hydrant at the corner of North 6th and Stansell Sts. The alert, phoned to 1320 households shortly after via the citys Code Red auto-dial system, remained in effect until 1:30 pm on April 1. It advised residents to boil water as a precaution to possible contamination in the water lines as a result of the mishap. City Manager Phil Rhoden said early this week the fact that the hydrant line kept spewing water at high pressure until a main valve was closed about an hour after the 9 am accident greatly reduced the likelihood of contamination. We were lucky; we never lost pressure but the order went out anyway because we thought it was the right thing to do, commented Mr. Rhoden. The break was repaired later that day and a Florida Department of Transportation crew was busy patching up an eight-foot section of pavement that washed away. There was concern the water main under it might break from vibration caused by heavy vehicles on North 6th. Joseph Cody Kennedy, 20, of Macclenny was at the wheel of the 2010 Chevrolet pickup that knocked over the hydrant and then struck a large pear tree near the intersection. He ran from the scene and was taken into custody near the county tax collector and property appraiser and US 90. Deputies obtained a description of the suspect and his apparel from witnesses near the accident scene who saw him run west on Stansell. Mr. Kennedy, who has only a learners permit to drive, confessed to police that he stole the truck from his halfbrother Kyle Larry Kennedy about daylight that morning. It was parked at the home of the owners father on South wood Rd. in the Blackbottom section of the southeast county. Were also lucky that he hit that pear tree in the path of a main power line, noted Manager Rhoden. Mr. Kennedy is charged with grand theft auto. bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll.

The so-called health factors ranking for Baker County in the recently released County Health Rankings from the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have the county 43rd in the state of 67 counties, up in 2010, the first year the rankings were issued. The rankings allow communities nationwide to compare their health outcomes and the factors that lead to those outcomes with other areas within their state. Health is everyones re sponsibility, said Baker County Health Department director Kerry Dunlavey in a prepared statement. The rankings allow us to see where we have been and what direction we need to take to improve life in Baker County. The outcomes measured by the rankings include the years old, the percentage of low birth-weight babies and survey results showing the share of adults who report having poor or fair health, among others.

The commissioner said the marathon meeting March 4 during which officials of a travel ball league clashed with those in charge of the countys Little League teams prompted him to put out a few feelers. Commissioner Giddens, the sole member of the county board who voted to allow sand mining by special exception, said shortly after that he was asked by Sanderson land own er and sand mining proponent Doug Moore to attend a meetMacclenny attorney Hugh Fish, who has a client relationship with Oldcastle, was at that meeting and handed Mr. Giddens a sketch depicting a tract south of the old railroad rightThe hitch, of course, is that on the Oldcastle deal going through, which then triggers the sale of land from DuPont to Oldcastle for the mining operation that has met widespread opposition because of fears that it will deplete the water table. The county commission in July, 2013 voted down the spe cial exception and the matter is now awaiting a ruling by a specially appointed magistrate since both sides failed to reach a mediated settlement.

The investigator found Bruce Clough, 24, in the trunk. He told the officers he was hiding there because he thought he had an outstanding warrant and he was trying to conceal the meth-making equipment. Inv. Michael Hague found numerous items used to manufacture the drug including a pack of lithium batteries, a pack of storage bags, a box of cold packs, a bottle of pure lye, two bottles of drain cleaner and a hose. Mr. Cordle repeatedly admitted that the items were his while the officers were search ing through the equipment. He was arrested for possession of a listed chemical with intent to manufacture and possession of marijuana. Mr. Clough was ar rested for the same possession of a listed chemical charge and resisting arrest without violence. Ms. Courtney was issued a verbal warning for her traffic violations and the Florida De partment of Children and Families was notified due to her 2and 8-year-old children being present. In a similar incident, two Macclenny residents were arrested on multiple drug charges in the early morning of March 30 after a fight broke out in a house that contained meth production equipment. Bradley Griffis, 22, and Brandon Wilkerson, 22, of Macclenny got in a fight after an argument broke out. Mr. Griffis left the scene and Cor poral Matthew Reigel located him while en route to the residence. The officer called EMS because the man appeared to have a broken nose and a large laceration on his head that required stitches. He told Cpl. Reigel that Mr. Wilkerson bum rushed him and struck him repeatedly. Fianc Deborah Burns, 22, and his sister Brooke Griffis gave similar accounts of the incident. Inside the room where the fight occurred, Cpl. Reigel found several items used in the production of meth including coffee filters, liquid drain cleaner, Coleman brand fuel, packaging for cold packs and a glass smoking pipe. After Cpl. Reigel found the equipment, Inv. Yarborough was summoned to the scene. He searched the room and found one used one-pot-style meth lab in a bottle, a gas venting hose, an empty pack of lithium batteries, a digital weighing scale, eight syringes and a rubber strap used for injecting narcotics in addition to the items Cpl. Reigel discovered. Inv. Yarborough also found a glass plate, four coffee filters, tin foil, numerous clear baggies and bowl that all had residue that tested positive for methamphetamine. The officer searched the area surrounding the house and located a small shed that contained a gas sprayer, two cans of Coleman fuel, one glass bowl with unknown liquid and torn lithium battery strips, a stack of coffee filters, two cold packs and three used one-pot-style meth labs in two-liter bottles. A review of pseudoephedrine logs at area stores revealed numerous current purchases and blocked purchases by Mr. Griffis and Ms. Burns. Mr. Wilkerson was found to have purchased pseudoephedrine earlier that evening. Mr. Griffis and Ms. Burns were placed under arrest for possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell and manufacturing of meth. Officers will attempt to contact Mr. Wilkerson to determine his involvement with the production of meth. In other drug-related incidents: Christopher Williamson, 26, of Glen St. Mary was arrested for possession of marijuana just after midnight of March 28 in the parking lot of the 121 Club. Deputy Christopher Clutter was on foot patrol in the parking lot when he walked up to the car containing Mr. Williamson and Sarah Williams, 30, of Macclenny. The two quickly opened their doors upon seeing the officer and Ms. Williams declared, Hes got everything. Its all his. Dep. Clutter discovered a small bag of marijuana where Mr. Williamson was seated when he got out of the car. He admitted it belonged to him and told the officer about an other bag of marijuana in a backpack in the back seat and a cigar containing pot in between the drivers seat and cen ter console, which the officer found during a search. He told the officer he knew he shouldnt be smoking, but it was his last hurrah before taking a drug test. Alisyn Hysler, 20, of Macclenny was arrested for smuggling contraband into the county jail on March 24 when a bundle of cigarettes fell out during a strip search. She said she picked up the contraband in front of the jail but refused to answer questions. Bruce CloughFrom page 1 region, Clay County was ranked 7th, Nassau 26th, The health factors collected in the research were broken into four areas. Under clinical care, the percentage of uninsured and the ratio of primary care doctors to the population were among the factors used. The socio-economic factors included unemployment, violent crime and graduation rates, to name a few. For behavioral factors, the rankings take into account smoking, obesity, teen births, STD rates and alcohol abuse, among others. There are also the physical environment factors like water and air pollution and problems in housing. Baker County leads Bradford, Columbia, Union and Putnam counties in the health factors rankWhen you look at the breakdown and compare us to surrounding counties, were the worst in obesity, said Dr. James Cardozo, a Macclenny chiropractor, after reviewing the rankings online at www.countyhealthrankings.org. Here some 37 percent of adults are classified as obese, state health statistics show. And from there, that puts you on track for long-term chronic diseases like diabetes, hyper tension and in my area arthritis, Dr. Cardozo said. Though the most recent health rankings, which are published annually, reflect data that can be two or three years old upon publication, Dr. Cardozo said recent developments like the closing of the YMCA fitness center wont help matters going forward. Physical activity, along with a healthy diet, are critical to combating obesity, he said. The improvement in the countys health factors ranking could mean the health outcomes ranking will improve in the coming years, too, said the physician. Wed love to see the outcomes come down, he said, adding that if obesity here dropped 7-to-10 percent, Baker Countys outcomes rankings could move into the 40s, rather than the 60s where it stands today. Unfortunately, he said, he hasnt seen a big change in patients willingness to alter their behav iors to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Ms. Dunlavey, director of the health department, sees the health rankings as a valuable tool. She said in her prepared statement that they help us understand what factors have influenced good health practices in our community and how we can continue to make Baker County a healthy place to live, learn, work and play. She pointed to the better health factors ranking as well, citing decreases in excessive drinking, smoking, STDs and teen births here. We look forward to sharing what has worked well in our community with other counties as part of a statewide effort to build a healthier Florida, such as our Project Turning Point which provides diabetic education and care to local residents at no cost, wrote Ms. Dunlavey. They (Mr. Fish and Mr. up in the air and it involved land DuPont owns on 228. I understood initially that it was turn key and thats why I said meeting, said Commissioner Giddens. I talked to Mr. Fish again and asked him if it was turn key and he told me that its just going to be the land and maybe building materials. It wasnt as great as I thought it was going to be. Mr. Fish confirmed this week he was approached about a long-term solution to the shortage of land available for The only way to approach this is ask who already has that kind of land within two miles of Macclenny, said the attor ney. And you also have to look somebody. He agreed that discussions are in the very preliminary stages, but said he suggested that DuPont is trying to sell that parcel to Oldcastle, and perhaps a land exchange could be possible somewhere else and they might be interested in a charitable donation for tax purposes. Commissioner Giddens, already stung by criticism over the earlier mining vote, said the parties should approach the county publicly with a concrete proposal and see where it goes. They need to go after the other commissioners and convince them this might be a soluhe said. Elizabeth Revell of Fernandina Beach, a public relations consultant hired by Oldcastle early in its quest for the sand mining project here, was seated in the audience in that commission meeting March 18 when discussed and, according to one witness, appeared startled by Mr. Giddens off-hand comment about a land deal. Weve been talking to everyone and weve inquired to see if we can be of assistance, Ms. Revell admitted in a telephone interview last week. She emphasized, however, that communication with the she would not name has been informal and is not connected to the still unresolved media tion between Oldcastle and the county.

Page3APRIL 3, 2014 LIKE US ONFACEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSIONLETTERS TO THE EDITOR Interest in new nature trail at Shoals Park?Baker County is seeking a grant to establish a nature trail at the western entrance to St. Marys Shoals Park. County environmental health director Terry Graham was interested if the public would actually use the roughly 1-mile scenic wildlife trail if it gets built. So we turned to Facebook to gauge interest, asking readers if they would use it and for any advice for county ocials working on the project. Heres a look at the responses: Barry Melton: I dont know much about whats going on with the old golf course (looks like nothing ex cept possibly a site for lming the next Jurassic Park movie) but it looks like a great place to build a few ball elds. I think we need to apply for grant money to x that issue ... Heck, you want nature trails, drive a little farther down CR 125 and visit the Bethea State Forest miles of nature trails. Jason Knabb: No, what a waste. The kids need ball elds. Monica Long: Yep, we need more ball elds like the one on Ivy Street. I love all the rude drivers on game day parking in mine and my neighbors yards and block ing the streets and drive ways while they talk on their cell phones. Its a residential area and my child cant even play outside on those days because of all the cars and people using Eagles Nest as a turn around and then ying back down the road. The nature trail sounds wonderful and benecial. Robert and Andrea Grif n: I agree. That would be a perfect place for a softball and baseball complex like Lake City has. Yvonne Rafuse Cooper: Waste of money. Add more ball elds and nicer parks that are safe to take your children to. Karen Higens: I hope its monitored so it doesnt end up like the duck pond. Beautiful park but I will not take my children there. DeeDee Hauge: I think its a great idea! We would cer tainly use it! Greg Sheppard: Awe some! Continue to expand it as a 50-miler for out of state Scouts as a winter camping destination. Also ask for business sponsors and volunteers to maintain sections much like the adopt the highway program. I would so do this along the river front. Nick Mercorella: Love the park. It could use a nice hiking trail, especially one that takes advantage of river frontage. Melinda Duran: Oh you bet! Itll be nice to have some thing closer to my home! We love to walk. Karen G. Harrison: Its a beautiful park! Perfect for walking, running, hiking, picnicking, riding horses, etc. Very peaceful and more people use it than you would think. Please keep it this way. A nature trail would be a fab ulous addition to it. Doug Wilds: Maybe it will generate some tourist/sight seer revenue. Sara Hayden: Yes but theres so many snakes out there! I see a lot every time I go.Concealed carry suspended in emergencies?Should concealed carry laws be suspended during de clared emergencies and evacuations? Sen. Charlie Dean is defending National Guards mans testimony against an NRA bill to do just that. What do you think? Kineard Burnsed: They can get a double-barrel shot gun and tote it with them. It would work just as well. Jason Knabb: No! What is the purpose for that? Dana Crawford-Pulley: No. To do so would negate the necessary background checks for concealed weap ons holders, and open the door for convicted felons to carry a weapon. Marie Pogue Absolutely not. Our rights are protected at all times. MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD Soball eld built without LL fundsDear Editor: This year, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Smith-Lever Act that established the Cooperative Extension Service. In Florida, extension allows us all to education of our land-grant universities, the University of Florida and Florida A&M University. UF/IFAS Extension has improved the lives of Floridians in many ways. If youve learned how to choose health ier foods, conserve water, de termine your fertilizer needs, save money or start a butter learned it from extension. If youve ever been to a 4-H camp or received help from a master gardener, you know extension. UF/IFAS Extension in Bak er County is proud of its accomplishments, but we look continually towards the futhe challenges we Floridians will face in the next 100 years and sharing them to make life healthier, happier and more prosperous for you. Please contact us to see what programs and informa tion we have to share. We are located in the Ag Center at edu. Michael A. Davis, PhD Director, agriculture agent Baker County Extension ServiceDear Editor: Twenty-plus years ago I was head of the Baker County girls softball league with 16plus teams. The problem we had then was the girls had we shared it with the church groups and the mens softball. That gave us only Saturdays to play. played sometimes until 11 at night. Minger Field was just we went to the county to make I drew a to scale diagram of what was needed and present ed it to the board of commissioners and then-county manwas approved and the county I believe a $100,000 matching grant. The commissioners built plus a great concession stand and announcers booth at a cost of around $40,000. The point is that the counfast pitch softball, and Little League put nothing in it out of their funds. It was designed for girls fast pitch not just Little League. It was built and is maintained by the county, and it should be shared with all teams. I pass by there many times on Saturday mornings used. There must be free times for others to use the facilities.David Hilson MacclennyEschews etiquette when it applies to remoteAs promised, here is part two of my everyday etiquette column. Last week my son Dylan pointed out how there needs to be a new kind of etiquette for everyday items, because people have become rude, and I agree. So here are some more observations of ordinary things that should have their own unwritten rules of conduct. Or written since thats what I seem to be doing. Families must learn to coexist with the television. I admit to being the television czar in my family. Every family has one. What makes me television czar? Simple. I am the possessor of the remote control. Like the Ring of Power from The Lord of the Rings, the remote is a powerful but insidious tool. Like Gollum murmuring my precious at his golden ring, I love the reget all crazy. Where is itssss, my precious? Where is itssss? Dont blame me, my wife adds. I dont even know how to work it. Its only been in my hands maybe two times since weve been married. Its all voodoo to me. Not quite accurate, but close. And like the Ring of Power on those rare occasions when it is in someone elses hands, I have the burning desire to snatch it back. Okay, Ill cool it on the Gollum references, but I have been known to turn the living My bunch have learned to sidestep the Stalin of the remote by scheduling shows like Top Gear, Cake Boss and Duck Dynasty to record. So I may be happily watching Person of Interest when Bam!! the channel changes automatically to Willie and Si and the rest of that Cajun bunch. Beyond the television, the obvious spot where we need household etiquette is the bathroom. I promised my wife not to get too personal here so Ill keep it general. I am going to skip over the obvious things, like never use another persons toothbrush and put the cap back on the tooth paste, and go to the big one. Toilet etiquette. If the bathroom door is closed, it is for a reason respect it. Somehow my children, who are all possessors of college degrees, have never learned that simple life lesson. I have mentioned this before in a column. It doesnt matter where they are or what they are doing, if I go into the bathroom Extension centennialfor some serious meditation their Dad-radar will kick in and they will need some burning question answered right then. Hey, Dad. Right. I see that. Should I part my hair on the right side or the left? Can this wait? I suppose. Hey, Dad. What, Spencer? Can I borrow $20 for gas? Seems like you have plenty of your own. Soon after my cell phone will ring. Its Sara in Jackson ville. Hey, Dad. Whatcha doing? It never fails. I am also curious why my children all prefer my bathroom to their own for serious meditation. Ill walk into my bathroom and walk out a sec on my face and one of them will give a sheepish smile and shrug. The culprit revealed. As you all know who read this column regularly, I am not a fan of cell phones, though I own one and use it. I truly believe that cell phone companies have wea ponized these devices in a super-secret way so than when you use them, some invisible silken tread enters your ear and wraps around your brain, making you stupid. Have you ever seen a teen ager with a cell phone somewhere where they cant use it? If it buzzes or beeps they begin to twitch and can barely keep from reaching out for it and seeing what the message might be? If it continues to buzz and beep it gets worse and worse until they look like a crack addict trying to kick the habit. I admit to waking up in the middle of the night after get ting a text message to check the phone to see if it is something important. Invariably it is a message from my cell phone carrier about a special deal. If you are using your cell phone in public that should give the public free access to your conversation. I was standing in line at the grocery store when a girl was explaining to her friend how her boyfriend was cheating on her. And then she had the nerve to come up to me at Chads party. She was talking at full voice so all of us could hear. Having been raised in a different generation I kept quiet, but I had the almost overwhelming urge to join in the conversation and say, Well, what did you say to her? It didnt matter though, because thats what her friend on the other end of the line asked. I think it should be fair game to join in. If you bring me into the conversation by talking loudly on your cell phone, youve got to suffer the consequences. Somewhere down the line Ill probably add to this list because as I write it I can think of so many more of lifes simple rules of etiquette.

The most lucrative payments went to the executive diChris Thomas, and a consultant counselor Lauren Maloney. The organization, which began in 1999 and was led by a board of directors that included Sheriff Joey Dobson, Property Appraiser Tim Sweat and local pastor Joe Ruise, lost its roughly $123,000 contract with the Florida Department of Children and Families in March, 2013 and planned to cease operations at the end of the following month. About two weeks ahead of May 1, when another nonprofit was set to take-over substance abuse counseling in Baker County, the board of directors suddenly laid off its employees and locked the doors. Though the board would not comment in any detail about why BCCS was shuttered early, employees said they brought allegations of financial misconduct and sexual harassment against Mr. Thomas to the boards attention. They said the board was concerned about any potential liability and reacted by closing up shop imme diately on April 17, 2013. Sheriff Dobson said at the time employees would receive a months wages as severance. As it turned out, however, most of them received significantly more, documents delivered to The Press last week show. The Press filed a lawsuit in late February to obtain all of BCCS financial records. The suit came after months of submitting public records requests to BCCS accounting firm, Lyons & Lyons of Macclenny and Mr. Ruise, who served as chairman of the board, to no avail. Both are named as defendants in the suit. The newspaper, as well as its attorney and the legal counsel of the Florida First Amendment Foundation, contend the records are public and subject to disclosure under Floridas broad public records law. Still, Lyons & Lyons and Mr. Ruise refused multiple requests to release the records until last week. Thats when Mr. Ruise delivered by hand to the newspaper only basic financial bookkeeping records and profit and loss statements going back to 2001. Sought by The Press but not delivered are the supporting documents for the bookkeeping entries, bank statements, credit card statements and all other financial records. Nonetheless, the documents released last week indicate that despite ceasing operations, BCCS continued to pay the staff large sums of money for nearly two months after the closing. Though some employees received more than others, between April 17 and June 12, the records show. Mr. Thomas, who headed up the staff since the organizations inception, was paid $3600 on May 14, which is about a months wages. Meanwhile Ms. Maloney, a consultant, received $4000 on April 30 and $3000 on May 13. Her pay varied substantially between $3000 and $4000 a month. Jay Baer, a substance abuse counselor contracted by BCCS, was given $1400 on April 18 and another $3000 12 days later. His monthly salary was about $2800. Karen Johnson, the office secretary and also a contract employee, was paid $2000 in two equal payments on April 30 and May 13. Her regular pay fluctuated, but remained under $1000 a month. Juvenile counselor and contract worker Mandee DaFormer office manager Linda Gibson got $3100 in two payments on the same day: $800 and $2300 on April 30. Her monthly salary was about $1700. Among the allegations made by staffers last year was that Mr. Thomas paid himself bonuses and used the nonprofits credit card for personal expenses. Mr. Thomas has denied any financial misconduct. There was no money spent out of that company that wasnt spent accordingly or was stolen. None of that stuff ever happened, Mr. Thomas said last year when confronted with the allegations. He declined to comment on the sexual harassment claims. The records supplied last week show Mr. Thomas was paid bi-weekly $1892, plus an additional amount that Three other contracted staff, former sheriffs de partment Maj. Chuck Brannan, who taught the courtordered suspended licenses classes, Randolph Ruise, who cleaned the office, and Stan Burris, who led another class, did not receive the additional compensation, the records indicate. Well over budget last yearThe documents also show BCCS posted a loss for the Total income for that year was listed at nearly $222,000, including about $42,000 in fees paid by offenders; while expenses totaled some $276,000. That latter figure includes nearly $76,000 in payroll, just ununspecified program expenses. When the nonprofit shut down, Mr. Ruise said, I be lieve our books are going to be OK ... Im sure well come out in the black, so we should be good. The newspapers lawsuit is ongoing to uncover more details about the fiscal management of the nonprofit. Accusations of financial improprieties by the former executive director, if true, would imply the board of directors were poor stewards of BCCS finances. The director said last year the board never commissioned an audit of the finances because it was too costly. It remains unclear whether a closing audit was performed by Lyons & Lyons. The newspaper is pursuing additional records because BCCS was funded with more than a million dollars in taxpayer funding through its 14 years in existence, and it served a function on behalf of the county government, which also paid BCCS.

During a noon workshop on April 1, board members discussed a draft investment policy presented by the agencys attor ney, Russell Wade, and generally agreed that a professional ful in formulating future investment decisions. Staff director Darrell ONeal said he will arrange to have an investment expert at next weeks meeting for a professional perand offer advice on investment is reached. Mr. Wade, who prepared the proposed investment plan for the boards consideration, said the boards main decisions will pertain to the level of risk theyre willing to assume for higher potential returns. Thats where the expertise of an investment manager will be most needed, most board members agreed. Member Gordon Crews, a Baker County commissioner, said he would prefer to hire an investment manager with the expertise to help us make the policy decisions regarding the percentage of a portfolio to in vest in a particular fund. We dont have that expertise, he said. Thats what I was looking for. I totally agree, said board member Karen Cossey, a Bradford County commissioner. In the past, New Rivers portfolio of between $2-$3 million has been invested mainly in money market accounts, earning a meager half-percent interest. invests in bonds and savings accounts actually lost around $870,000 during the last fiscal year, which drew another criticism by the boards auditor, Lora Douglas, who urged the adoption of an investment policy to guide future decisions. Mr. ONeal reminded the board that the auditor has recommended an investment manager be hired by New River for the past three years in a row. If the board decides to seek the services of a licensed investment manager, Mr. ONeal said, there are three key questions that must be answered: What is their philosophy? What is their expectation? What is their expe rience? The draft investment policy covered the gamut of investments from CDs and money market accounts to bonds and federal treasury notes and cor porate stocks, the latter of which Mr. Wade described as by far but with potentially the highest return. One pot of money that would be exempt from investments are restricted funds in escrow accounts established for the future long-term care of portions of the must continue to be cared for and monitored for many years to come. Closure and long term care accounts, we cant touch, Mr. Wade told the board. That money is off the table completely The proposed policy states: Restricted funds for the CloNRSWA Escrow Accounts are strictly subject to the applicable governing laws and regulations of the Department of Environmental Protection and are therefore exempt from all provisions of this Policy. That was one area that drew particular criticism in the recent audit, in which Ms. Douglas said business and needed to be treated like one. You need to consider future obligations, she said in the report. You should not treat it like a county budget and spend ev erything you bring in every year. A business cannot continue to operate if it spends everything it makes and lives paycheck to paycheck. She pointed out that the fu ture expenses for closure and long-term care, which include grass mowing and monitor gas, have not been adequately funded. For example, the association has only set aside about half of the estimated $10.3 million needed for those future re quirements. The 19-page comprehensive draft investment policy prepared by Mr. Wade, which included references to all applicable governing laws and included examples of other governmental jurisdictions investment plans, drew Mr. ONeals praise. This is more customized than anything I thought we were going to get, he told the attorney. I applaud you for that. The attorney also appeared to be out of hot water with two board members who called for his replacement after receiv ing the audit and being told by Mr. ONeal last month that Mr. cial expert was not needed to usher in a new investment policy. tion this week, telling the board that state law does not require an investment manager be hired to carry out an investment policy, which he said could be handled internally.JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA bill working its way through the Florida House would give state legislators fi nal authority over historical markers at state parks, rather than the Florida Department of Environmental Protections parks division. The bill from Rep. Den response to the controversy sparked when the Florida chap ans requested placement of a Union monument at the 3-acre Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park last year. The groups plans riled up plenty of opposition from the which counts Rep. Baxley as a member. They argue a Union monument at the park, origi nally given to the state by the United Daughters of the Con federacy in 1909, would be offensive to their Southern heri tage. The Union group, meanwhile, cites the higher number of Union casualties in the 1864 Battle of Olustee and the lack of a battlefield monument to those who fought for the federalists at the park site. A grave marker is located nearby, outside the state park boundaries, but the group says its too far removed from the annual battle festivities to pay proper tribute to their ancestors. The conflict has garnered national attention, most re cently from the online news outlet The Huffington Post. Rep. Baxleys bill, which last week was approved by the House Agricultural and Natural Resources Subcommittee with a close 7-6 vote, has also ruffled the feathers of his fellow legislator Rep. Elizabeth resents Baker County, and voted against the measure. She called a public input meeting late last year to discuss the issue and doesnt believe the legislature should be the final authority over monuments at state parks, particularly because it opens the process to political influence. The process worked in my district, Rep. Porter said, according to recent reports. Weve had meetings, we discussed it and everyone had their side heard. Its funny how people will say local control, local control, local control until they dont get what they want ... and then they want the state to come in and mandate other wise. The bill must pass two more committees before a vote of the full House. There is a companion bill in the Florida Senate also working its way through the committee process. In other recent develop ments out of the Florida Legislatures 2014 session, the Senate Committee on Appropriations passed its budget for begins June 1. The legislation has funding to open the new, but vacant, Baker County ReEntry Center in Olustee. The state funded construction of the center, but not its operational costs. The center will be home to inmates within 18 months of release to Northeast Florida communities. At the center theyll receive job training and other counseling to help them successfully re-enter society without re-offending. Sen. Charlie Dean (R-Iner County, said in his weekly newsletter on March 28 hes excited about the potential funding for the project as well as funding for a work camp in Dixie County. Both of these projects will provide direct economic development and jobs for my district, he said.JON SHUMAKE jonshu@live.comPolice were called to the Macclenny Church of God on 6th Street the morning of March 24 after the pastor discovered a building belonging to the church had been vandalized the previous night. Rev. Shannon Connor found the building had been spray painted with a face smoking a cigarette with the word Smokin above it. In the same building, a mop had been thrown through a window in the door after it was used to knock out all the glass. Deputy Jacob Satterwhite found the sidewalk had also been spray painted with the words Only God can judge me. Rev. Connor told the deputy that the secretary was the last person at the church the pre vious night and everything appeared normal when the secre tary left around 8:30. The pastor told Dep. Satterwhite that he had told a young male to not smoke on church property a few weeks prior, but could not identify the man. In a similar incident, police responded to the Country Club Lounge on SR 121 South on March 28 after two Macclenny men reported cell phones stolen and then found damaged in the womens restroom. Ricky Castillo and Travis Miller were sitting on a couch inside the club the day before when Chelsea Higginbotham, 21, of Glen St. Mary joined them. At this time, Mr. Castillo went to the bar but left his phone behind on the couch. Ann Miller, 34, and Kristina Higginbotham, 37, of Macclenny also sat down on the couch near his phone. Mr. Castillo went back to the couch once the three women left and Mr. Miller said he couldnt find his phone. Mr. Castillos phone was missing, too. The three women walked into the restroom after they left the couch, and the two men had the bar owner go into the restroom once the women left. She found Mr. Castillos phone in the toilet submerged in water and Mr. Millers phone was found in the trash can. Mr. Castillos phone case was also found damaged. Deputy Marc Heath was unable to contact the three women. In other incidents: A criminal complaint was filed on a Glen St. Mary woman on March 27 for felony larceny after a Sanderson woman nopurse. Leslie Starling was unloading groceries from her car and the couch before Teresa Stokes, the items were put away, Ms. Starling took her purse to the She went back to see who took the money and found that Ms. Stokes had left the resi dence. Deputy Jeremiah Johnson tried to contact the suspect to no avail. A lost cell phone was re turned to a Macclenny woman after it went missing at the Sixth Street Steakhouse on Doree Mobley told Investigator Rodney Diggers that she had her phone while eating at the restaurant but then noticed it was missing after she left. After speaking with two employees at the restaurant, the lost phone mode was activated and displayed the name had been changed to Bigee. The phone was left active for a week and a message was placed on it to contact her or her husband if the phone was found. Mrs. Mobley received a call within a couple of days by Zachary Graham of Sanderson who told her that he bought the phone off Facebook from an unknown person. He said the person was a tall white male with a medium build who went by the name Burt. The value of the missing phone and case was about $370. Police responded to the residence of an elderly Macclenny woman on March 24 who had $300 stolen from an envelope in her purse. Doris Washington last saw the money on March 20 when she gave her daughter change for larger bills. She named a female suspect who was assisting her at her residence for and appeared to be in a hurry to leave. The Department of Children and Families was notified of the incident but there will be no further investigation. Jack Pearce of Sanderson called the police on March 24 to report that a handgun was stolen from his gun cabinet during the previous month. Mr. Pearce noticed the longbarreled .22 caliber Ruger revolver was missing on March 21. He had the gun out about a month prior showing someone, but he doesnt know if that person stole it. Deputy Christopher Walker contacted the man, who denied taking the weapon. Amanda Feehly of Macclenny contacted the police on March 24 about her cell phone that was stolen while she was away from home. She told Dep. Satterwhite that she had shown a 17-yearold male the phone on March 17, and when she returned from a hospital stay, she noticed the phone was missing. Ms. Feehly spoke with the juvenile, who denied having the cell phone. Dep. Satterwhite spoke with Patricia Smith of Glen St. Mary, who said she called the number of the missing phone and recognized the voice as her grandson. The juvenile told the deputy he borrowed the phone but gave it back to Danny Mathis on March 24. Mr. Mathis said he didnt have the phone or knew who had it. A 17-year-old Macclenny juvenile called police on March 24 after noticing his silver necklace with a silver cross and diamonds and $100 had been stolen from a camper. Dep. Satterwhite responded to the scene but didnt find any signs of forced entry. You should not treat it like a county budget and spend everything you bring in every year.

ursday, April 3, 2014 T B C P Page 7JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA state housing program is keeping a close eye on Baker County after the county failed to remedy a violation of the programs rules roughly one year ago. It was last April that The Press exposed a Glen St. Mary councilmans violation of State Housing Initiative Partnership, or SHIP, regulations prohibiting him from profiting off the taxpayer-funded home built for his late mother. Morris Dickie Foster, a plumbing contractor, sidestepped the prohibition when he began leasing the home the SHIP program, which is administered by the state with federal funding. Once that revelation became public, the county, which ad ministers the program locally and serves as the fiscal agent for money that pays for new homes or home renovations for low-income, disabled or elderly applicants, including Mr. Fosters mother, had two options to remedy the violation. The county could foreclose on the property, a single-family home of some 1000 square feet on North Glen Avenue next to Mr. Fosters residence, and sell Foster owed the SHIP program, explained County Manager C.J. Thompson early last year. SHIP grants function as deferred loans in which the loan balance decreases annually until it reaches zero after 20 years. Mr. Fosters home was completed in 2009, but his mother lived there until her death in 2012. The countys other option, Mr. Thompson said last year, would be to file a lien against the property and pay back the program when the house is sold. He indicated the county would go the latter route because the county doesnt want to be in the real estate business. Last summer, when asked about the status of the lien, Mr. Thompson said it had not been filed but it was on his to-do list. He said he was busy with the county budgeting process and he would eventually have it filed. Now, a year after the matter surfaced, the lien has still not been filed. Meanwhile, since February of last year, the county has filed 19 code enforcement liens totaling thousands of dollars in fines. It looks like the lien should have been filed, for sure, said Cecka Green, spokeswomen for the Florida Housing Finance Corporation, which administers the SHIP program statewide. But, she said, the countys failure to do so did not violate SHIP program statutes or rules. It can be viewed as a management issue, though, Ms. Green said. Most likely, the county will be subject to compliance monitoring through Florida Housing and audits of the program, possibly through their county auditors.Why was the lien overlooked?Last week Mr. Thompson, the county manager, blamed the lack of action on an over sight by the countys previous legal counsel William Sexton, now an attorney representing Bradford County. The county manager said he told Mr. Sexton to file the Foster lien, and it was news to him that it never happened. I should have followed up, he said, adding that the countys turnover in attorneys last year caused a number of complica tions for county officials. If that conversation ever took place between Mr. Thompson and Mr. Sexton, the latter party doesnt remember it. When contacted last week, Mr. Sexton said he had no recollection of being told to file the lien against Mr. Fosters property. After being told the circumstances that led to Mr. Fosters violation of the SHIP program rules, Mr. Sexton said none of it sounded familiar. He wouldnt go so far as to say the conversation with Mr. Thompson never happened, but he couldnt say one way or the other. Mr. Fosters mothers passing while occupying a SHIP house is not unprecedented. County commissioner Mark Hartley found himself in the same situation, but he paid off the SHIP loan. Mr. Foster, meanwhile, started leasing the house, which he said he upgraded at his own expense with various amenities and additions a typical SHIP house would not have. When renting the home last year, the yard sign placed in front of the residence asked the balance owed on the loan could be earned in less than five years. But without the lien in place, the property could be sold and the SHIP program for the home. Mr. Foster would be under no obligation to pay back the program, either. Last year, Mr. Foster told The Press he would pay the money, but only if he had to. If they [the county] tell me to do it, Ill do it. Ill do whatever I have to to make it right, he said. That contradicted what the county manager said, however. Mr. Thompson said he discussed the issue with Mr. Foster last year and the contractor couldnt afford to pay off the loan. Mr. Foster signed much of the SHIP paperwork to secure the new home for his mother. He bought the property back in it had a 844-square-foot woodframe house on it. He deeded the property to his mother two years later. About a year after that, a suspicious fire caused some $10,000 in burn and smoke damage to the structure. That sparked an investigation by the State Fire Marshal, which named Mr. Foster as an arson suspect. The state agency re ported there wasnt enough evidence against him to charge him with the crime, however. was issued to Mr. Foster after the fire. Thats about the time Mr. Foster, using his mother as the applicant, applied for help from the SHIP program, which is meant to keep the states most vulnerable populations from becoming homeless. Mr. Fosters mother at 73 with a respiratory condition and only social security checks to show for income was a prime candidate for the program. According to the website of the Florida Housing Finance Corporation, it takes seriously its obligation to the citizens of Florida to conduct business in a legal and ethical manner. This ranges from protecting state and federal assets from waste, inefficiency, misuse, theft, etc., to behavior that does not enhance the public trust and confidence in Florida Housing. The spokeswoman for Florida Housing, Ms. Green, said her agency was still working with county officials early this week to see what the situation is with this property. As of early this week, court records indicate no lien has been filed in the Foster SHIP case.

April has been formally recognized as Water Conservation Month in Florida for the past 16 years, as April is typi cally a dry month when water demands are higher due to springtime planting. Lawn and landscape irriga tion accounts for more than half of all residential water use. District lawn watering rules are designed to ensure landscape irrigation and spec ify the days when residents and businesses may water. These days depend on whether the property has an odd or even numbered address. Irrigate lawns and landscapes up to two days a week, before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m., from March to November, and up to one day a week during the cooler months of Eastern Standard Time. Watering wisely year-round promotes healthier lawns and landscapes and can save thou sands of gallons of water per month, as well as save homeowners money. Overwatering a lawn can promote weeds and insect pests, as well as weakened grass roots. Watch the weather if it looks like it is going to rain, dont water your lawn. Outdoor conservation tips include: Water lawns during the early morning or early evening hours when temperature and wind speed are lowest. This reduces losses from evaporation and wind that can occur during the middle of the day. Use a broom to clean leaves and other debris from sidewalks and driveways rather than a hose. Using a hose to clean a driveway can use hundreds of gallons of water. spray nozzle that can be adoff at the faucet instead of at the nozzle to avoid water loss from leaks. Without a spray nozzle, an unattended garden hose can pour out 8 to 12 gallons each minute, or hundreds of gallons of water in an hour. Collect rainwater to use to water plants. It is free and is better for plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals. Indoor tips include: Inside the home, a leaky toilet or faucet can waste thousands of gallons of water each toilets and shower heads can dramatically reduce indoor water consumption without reduced performance. Insulate water pipes to get hot water faster and avoid wasting water while it heats up. Never put water down the drain when there may be another use for it, such as watering a plant or cleaning. Store drinking water in the refrigerator instead of let ting the tap run while waiting Water conservation is among the districts highest priorities, and nearly every aspect of the districts work, from consumptive use permitting to cooperative funding to water supply planning, has a water conservation component. Since 2010, the district and local governments, utilities and other partners have invested nearly $7 million in cost-share projects to improve water conservation. waterconservation for more tips on how to conserve water.

Professional, Courteous Located at 1191 S. 6th Street, Macclenny 2 doors down from Sixth Street Steakhouse That is just like the Gators, they are gonna mess around and lose this thing. That is my wife, a true-blue Gator fan to the end, commenting on the Gators Elite Eight basketball game against Dayton. Are you stupid ? Why do you take a shot like that? with a 30-footer. Because he sunk the last one, I add placidly. I am rooting for the Gators, but quietly. Its still stupid when you have Patrick Young wide open under the back board. From this conversation, you would assume that the Gators were down by 10 points instead of up by 10. Not so. Kel ley is a true-blue Gator, which means that she is utterly convinced that they will manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Ive seen it too many times before, she explains like the sage on the mountaintop. This time, however, they did not manage to throw it all away and booked a place into the Final Four in Dallas this weekend. They will face UConn, a surprise winner against Michigan State. It certainly surprised me and most of the basketball pundits on CBS. Almost all of them picked the Spartans to be national champs. Even the president picked them, which many people in this red state will claim doomed them to de feat. I certainly thought the Spartans would win. After all and this is a truly impressive stat for the last 16 years if you started as a freshman on Tom Izzos team, by the time you were a senior you were in the Final Four. Wow! A convincing reason for Izzo to be in the College Basketball Hall of Fame. But UConn pulled it out and will match up against Florida. In the other bracket, #8 seed Kentucky stopped #2 seed Michigan to move on and face Wisconsin, who outlasted #1 seed Arizona. Wisconsin has looked very good all tournament long, so how can you go against them? Well Kentuckys entire team is made up of High School AllAmericans and that quality, so elusive in the regular season, where they lost eight games, is showing up come tournament time. If UConn loses to Florida and Kentucky beats the Badgers it will be a nightmare sce nario for true-blue Gator fans who have watched UF beat UK three times this year. Theyll beat our eyes out. So sayeth the sage of Shelly Lane.
