Isander Birriel-Gar cia, 21, was charged with the second-degree felony following an interview with a sheriffs investigator at county jail during which he was presented with sexually suggestive text messages between him and the girl that were culled from a Facebook page. Deputy Michael Clark responded the afternoon of March 31 to the Macclenny residence of the teens grandmother after she received a text from the girl indicating she would return home when she wanted to. The teen was supposed to be spending the weekend with relatives. Acting on a tip, Deputy Clark confronted the girl and several other juveniles outside a residence on North 5th St. later that afternoon and brought her home. Also at the location was Mr. Garcia, who was warned he could be liable to a criminal charge of contributing to the delinquency of minors. veyed the situation to the susthe case was initially closed as unfounded. Then on April 1, Deputy Christopher Clutter respond ed to a complaint by the girls mother after she learned of the JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comTaylor native and 25-year Florida Department of Transportation staffer James G. Bennett is planning to leave the state agency and run for the District 4 Baker County Commission seat occupied by Adam Giddens today. Mr. Giddens, an accountant, didnt want to talk about the up coming race until Mr. Bennett files his paperwork with the Supervisor of Elections. Mr. Bennett, meanwhile, declined to discuss any issues that could arise during the campaign, but spoke about why he intends to seek public office. He said its the right move at the right time. Its my full intention to run. Im working through some issues at my job and my employment now to help with the tran sition before I leave my office, he said during a brief interview April 5 at his familys feed and farm store. So it will be a little bit of time before I file because I need time to work through those issues and Ill be seeking private sector employment as well. After more than two decades with the state, full of hard work and great success according to Mr. Bennett, hes now looking for personal and professional growth and an opportunity to shape the countys future. He said waiting another four years to run is not desirable be cause he expects the area to be in the throes of another growth spurt by then. He described seeking public office as an excellent opportunity. The timing works very well for me, for my career. If I pass up this opportunity, its another four years and I dont want to wait another four years, said the married father of two. Right now I think our county is poised for growth. I think thats a positive thing. The economy is starting to turn around. Were seeing it in many different sectors. I think we need to make sure were in a position to capture some of that growth.

The market moved this year from the City Park near the football stadium to Heritage Park, its fourth location in as many years. Visitors and vendors at the market, which ran from 9 am to 1 pm, raved about the new location, which had plenty of space for the booths, an antique car show and train rides for the kids; not to mention the parks picturesque amenities. Joyce and Lee Punting of Jacksonvilles west side said traffic at their produce booth, one of the first near the parks entrance, was very good. They sold out of many items and enjoyed conversing with lots of friendly people. And nobodys complaining about the prices, so it shows us the prices are right, said Mrs. Punting. Heritage Parks profile got a boost last year after the City of Macclenny hired a new manager, Michele Hodges, who has planned a number of well-attended events that have also opened a new revenue stream for city coffers through modest entry fees to the often holidaythemed events. The parks success is partially responsible for the markets relocation there, said Darryl Register, a member of the nonprofit markets board of directors and the staff director of the Chamber of Commerce. The frequency of the farmers market was cut back this year from a weekly affair to a monthly one coinciding with the first Saturday Farmers Market debuts at HeritageBaker County Clerk of Courts Al Fraser announced after two decades, and will do so effective in November, two years before his term expires. Mr. Fraser, who turns 64 this summer, made the announcement to staff Monday after noon, and said hes been seriously considering an exit since this year. The same day, he notified Gover nor Rick pave the way for a replace ment election on this Novembers ballot. The longtime clerk said he was unaware until very recently that the deadline for qualifying by signatures is May 19, and that accelerated the announcement timing. Id pretty much made up my mind before that, but when I learned how short the make it public, he said. Mr. Fraser, a Glen St. Mary store owner by trade before assuming the clerks position when he defeated Edna Sands in 1994, served on the county commission one term starting in 1980 then stayed out of public life for a decade. Mrs. Sands, of Macclenny, was appointed to the post after the death of the late Harry Richardson in 1993. never drew an opponent. Ive been very appreciative that the public allowed me to serve these 20 years and Ive enjoyed working with them, said the clerk during a tele phone interview. Ive also gotten along well with the county commissions over the years; weve not see eye-to-eye every time, but Im not one to get mad at anybody because we dont.

Page 2 T B C P ursday, April 10, 2014of the month. Mr. Register said that change was made to attract more vendors from outside Baker County. The mornings been great. Great weather, said Mr. Register shortly after 10 a.m. Its been a little slow on shoppers and wed like to have more vendors. But weve had quite a few shoppers coming in over the last hour. Everybody seems to think this a really good location. We think and we hope well have more vendors next time. Any interested vendors are encouraged to call Ms. Hodges at the park at (904) 259-7275, or just show up on Saturday morning and well make room for you, added Mr. Register. Glen St. Mary resident Jen nifer Rosepiler and her two children Peyton and Andrew were checking out yard sales on Saturday morning and stopped at the market, tasting some locally produced honey from bee keeper Jim Altmillers stash. The Taylor resident says his honey is made without chemicals or heat, so it retains the naturally-occurring antibiotics found in the sweet sauce. Any honey you find in the store will be heat treated, Mr. Altmiller said. He said business was slow, but he sold some 20 jars of honey through about 11 a.m. Maxvilles Mona Maloy brought her 4-year-old daughter to the market and called it awesome. We do all our shopping in Macclenny, so were a big part of Macclenny even though we dont live here, she said, adding she wished the market was open more frequently. The antique car show from Sunshine State Chevelles of Jacksonville brought in plenty of onlookers as the clubs president, Chris Conover, emceed the days activities and played oldies tunes over loud speak ers. Among the glistening automobiles were a Chevy and a Chevy Malibu circa 1970. Vendor Jessica Kirkland of Jessis Bows and More was selling hand-sewn bows, dresses and tutus. The full-time mother of five said shes always crafted but only recently started selling her wares. She said she enjoyed the variety of vendors at the market. Theres been a lot of nice people, said Ms. Kirkland, She said traffic at her booth was alright but could always be better. Traci Shell of Anonymous Crafters in Jacksonvilles Arlington area described her booths business as so-so on the markets opening day. We hoped for more vendors to bring out a crowd but its get ting better as the day goes by, she said. Joy Ruhe of Joys Country Kitchen has been canning for about five years. After her daughter became ill, she had to stop working her day job. This allows me to stay home and work while I take care of her, she said, adding she makes cakes, jams, jellies, relishes, and some unique things with adult beverages. The Glen St. Mary resident believes the market will grow as time goes on and was surprised by the support the community showed last weekend. This year Im seeing its much better, said Ms. Ruhe. They (attendees) are excited the park is open on Saturday. A lot of them say theyve wanted to come in here but they work during the week. Theyre excited to see the park. Theyre enjoying the music. I think theyre really liking what theyre see ing. Coming up next month at the market, which has booked two additional vendors for Saturday, May 3, is an antique tractor show. See video from the markets opening day at www.baker countypress.com. sea ports will serve him well with regard to future growth here. FDOT is a fantastic place to be, a fantastic place to work. It was a very difficult decision to leave ... said Mr. Bennett. This [seeking public office] is just a fantastic opportunity for me here. Its a great way for me to be able to have an impact on my hometown community. This is where I grew up. This is where all my family is. This is where I chose to be, where I want to be. In fact, Mr. Bennett has lived in District 4 his entire life. He now resides in the Cop per Creek subdivision north of Macclenny, but most of his family remains in Taylor, where he grew up and where he still owns property. I know the district and I know it well. I grew up and played in it as a youngster, said Mr. Bennett. Understanding that rural area, its a little bit different than urban areas or when youre dealing with municipalities. County commissioners represent various districts but are elected by voters county-wide. Mr. Bennett called his decision to run for the county commission seat huge and said it took a lot of forethought and prayer to ensure it was the right decision for the right reasons. He is a registered Republican and would face Mr. Giddens in the primary election on August 26. In Floridas closed primary system, only Republicans can vote in a GOP primary and only Democrats can vote in that partys primary. Independent voters cannot vote in the states primaries. Voters seeking to change their party affiliation and new voters who want to register to vote must do so 29 days prior to the election date, so the deadline for doing either for the primary is July 28. The general election is set for November, making the registration deadline October 6. Crowded field for school board seats Mr. Giddens and current commission chairman Jim my Anderson have both said they intend to seek re-election, along with school board members Dean Griffis and Artie Burnett. Paula Barton, a former schools superintendent for 12 years, is running in a three-way race for the open school board seat vacated by Jesse Davis last year. Shell likely face James Rhoden, among the direct care staff at Northeast Florida State Hospital, and DeAnna RewisMcDuffie, who is working for Mark and Allison Broughton on the couples zip line park project in Sanderson now under development. School board races are nonpartisan and will be decided in the primary. John Jody Anderson, brother to county commissioner Jimmy Anderson, is running against Mr. Burnett, a firstterm school board member and corrections officer. Mr. Griffis, owner of Glen Cash Store, and Jimmy Anderson have not yet drawn opponents for their seats. The deadlines to qualify to run for election this year are June 20 for qualifying by fee or May 19 for doing so by petition. The qualifying fee for the county commission races is $1851.91 and the school board $1050.48. Candidates qualifying by petition must collect at least 140 signatures, which is equal to 1 percent of the countys registered voters.

Page3APRIL 10, 2014 ning them down? Turned out not to be as good of a deal as I thought. There you go Alexander Robertson: Not no, but hell no! Oer ing land for new ball elds is bribery. They should be all up on charges if this deal is taken. Jason Davis: Yes. How ever, they should put more back into the county. Perhaps a certain percentage into the schools, road construction in the area they will be working, and replanting of forestry. They should oer jobs to the local population, do school/ town hall talks to explain why they are mining and the bigger picture. Help reconstruct roads they will be traversing on since the weight of the equipment they will be transporting will be way over the FLDOT standards. Certainly replant at least two-thirds of the forest they destroy. You cant stop progress; Baker County will have to realize that. However, you can at least demand more of an incentive. Debi Tisdel Doyle: The greedy will search out your weakness and greatest motivations and will use them to get what they want and command control. Sounds like bribe me! Tread lightly. Yo Ahrens: Somehow I doubt if these big corporations really care about the future of your children in Baker County. Do the executives and owners of this corporation live here? Will it be their children and families impact ed by the mining? Have they mined before and if so how has it impacted that county? What are the long term effects? Would your neighbor throw you and your children under the bus because they are beneting nancially? I would rather my child play softball with a stick and tater in an open eld of grass than compromise the future of his home. No thank you to sand mining. John Duey Jr: As long as they meet the states standards for what they are mining for I say yes. We sure need more softball elds. Kimberly Kraai-Gris: The people are saying no quite loud and clear. If our elected ocials do not listen to the people then they are not doing their jobs and no longer need to hold said po sitions. Think about the peo ple and not greedy pockets. Amy Luding Williams: Just say no to mining. They are raping the earth. Theresa Rhoden: Accept ing this bribe from Oldcastle is like making a deal with the devil. Nothing good can come from this deal!

As I do on occasion, I take hat and put on my intrepid journalist fedora to delve into some of the pressing issues of the day. I have uncovered some interesting tidbits of news that somehow didnt make the regular news broadcasts. Here they are. CNNs Wolf Blitzer was arrested on Friday after get ting into a shoving match with CNN producer Mark Watson. Watson had the temerity to suggest that Blitzer might focus on other news besides the missing Malaysia Airlines Are you out of your ##&$^% mind? said Blitzer before shoving Watson into a soda machine at CNNs Atlanta studio. by Atlanta police until he calmed down and posted bail. Later on his nightly broadcast The Situation Room the veteran newscaster apologized to viewers by saying that Watson was just mistaken. He doesnt realize that there isnt any other news. Rival ABC Evening News received a ratings spike this past week when they stopped airing coverage of the missing jetliner and instead aired reruns on the networks 2004 hit Lost, which featured a missing airliner. Country legend Merle Haggard picked up the coveted Crystal Lifetime Achievement Award at the Country Music Association gala on Sunday. Haggard happily accepted the award, although viewers couldnt tell that the musician was thrilled because Haggard hasnt smiled since 1975. When asked what he had to do to receive the award, Haggard quipped, Live long enough. The Supreme Court ruled nancing case earlier this week 5-4 that old rich white guys could spend as much money as they wanted in order to buy an election. The decision removed a cap on individual donations. The decision came as a surprise to the Koch brothers, the old, rich, white industrialists who have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into political campaigns over the past decade. I thought we were already doing that, said David Koch. We were, responded his brother Charles. But its legal now. Oh? What fun is that? responded David Koch. The US government recently paid millions of dollars to develop a a Twitter-like social media app for Communist Cuba. The hope was that the app would encourage antigovernment tweets. Then 68,000 Cubans downloaded the new app, but instead of fomenting anti-government support they talked about how their local sports teams were awful, how their love life was in the toilet and how their parents didnt understand them. In short, they did just what Twitter users in the USA do millions of times a day. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is in China this week to give a speech that hopes to lay out ground rules on cyber espionage. Hagel wants the Chinese to agree to rules similar to what the old Soviet Union did regarding the use of nuclear weapons and led to the estab lishing of a hot line between Washington and Moscow. The Chinese told Hagel that he could have saved himself the trip because they had already hacked into his comput er and had the content of his speech. They did compliment Hagel on how good his wife looked in a bikini and that they had laughed and laughed at his Grumpy Cat screen saver. In a bold move aimed at heading off a possible Russian invasion of neighboring Ukraine, the Obama administration announced that it was freezing the Bloomingdale and Cartier accounts of the wives The president believes that this sends a clear message to President Putin that the United States will not tolerate any incursion into the Ukraine, said presidential spokesman Jay Carney. LIKE US ONFACEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION IMPRESS I ONSJim McGauley Opening of Farmers MarketDid you make it to the Farmers Market this past Saturday? Do you like the new location? Walter Kelly Crews: I am interested in visiting the Farmers Market but people need to remember that we are in a transition period for produce; fall crops are waning and now is the time for most spring crops to be planted but in the next month or so more vegetables will be available and in 6-8 weeks the selection will dramatically improve. I have probably over-planted my dierent Heirloom tomatoes this year so maybe I will give people an opportunity to taste some old non-hybrid but very colorful and multisized varieties that actually taste great!Sand mining in exchange for ball eldsOldcastle is courting county ocials with an oer of land for new ball elds if the county approves the companys sand mining plan. What do you think? Should the county take the deal? Doug Stewart: No! The county already has the land (Shoals Park) for recreational use only. Why not use what you already have ?? Albert Crews: No. They going to try anything they can to get in there. County ocials should stick to there guns and stand up for the people. Marc Lyons: Oh, so now they are going to do some thing nice for us? I thought they were going to sue us. Corporate bullies trying to get their foot in the door any way they can! Bunch of Car petbagger Snake Oil Salesman! The county already sits on land that can be used for ball elds that we are paying taxes on, Shoals Park and the tract north of Glen St Mary that was purchased years ago. We (the county) dont need a surplus of vacant land. Commissioner Adam Giddens tried to make a deal with the Devil on this ball eld deal and what was his comment after he tried pinMY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD Reading in last weeks edition about Baker Countys dismal rank ings in key health-related areas prompts one to wonder how others absorb the information. People with poor health habits might read Joel Addingtons article pointing out that Baker County ranks 64th of Floridas 67 counties in health outcomes and say So what? Or maybe theyd be prompted to cease doing whatever it is they do (or not do) to contribute to the non-enviable position. Healthy people might be tempted to take a more condescending view, like Well, if they choose to live like that (smoking, drinking to excess, remaining obese, a sedentary lifestyle, etc.) not much I can do about it. I suspect many among us are, well, a bit ashamed of ourselves, or ashamed of our county. As Mr. Addington pointed out, there is some cause for optimism in that the same study determined Baker Countys health factors (precursors to outcomes) are improving. The county stands at 43rd of 67 there, up a full ten places from the previous year. Regardless of how one takes the news, we must admit being poorly on all of us. Consider this: recently a group of business people, many of whom have pledged private money for the Choose Baker initiative to lure more industry to the area, came up with a list of ideal businesses to court. Hopefully the effort will succeed in coming years, and if it does it will do so in spite of what we all now know Baker County just isnt a very healthy place to live. We cant blame it on the smog, polluted rivers or other environ mental goblins. Were unhealthy because we dont take care of ourselves, and that makes us unattractive to the outside world. Adverse health factors that are rooted in unhealthy behavior are linked to demographics including income and educational levels, and Baker County has to take some lumps there. Were not a rich or well-educated county, and unlike Nassau County we dont have wealthier coastal enclaves like Amelia Island to bump those numbers up. Were pretty much out here by ourselves, and we have to live with what we make of ourselves the positive and the negative. Theres reason to believe, as the article notes, that Baker County has an opportunity to pull itself up to the lower side of respectable say the mid-40s of the 67 counties but theres no immediate healthier people to jog up the statistics. So it comes down to the individual, and that is the nucleus of the battleground. The most effective weapon, for sure, lies with individual families where examples are set for children. Adults who alter poor health habits or already live lives relatively free of health hazards are the most effective examples for their children. Its not only a matter of living better and living longer; it is ultimately a matter of pride, and pride in oneself and ones family leads to pride in ones community. Thats why reading about Baker Countys bottom dweller status in the health statistics sweep stakes makes us all a bit regretful and depressed. Some of our fellow residents may not care one way or another, but rationality suggests most of us do care. And many do care a lot.Poor health stats reect us poorlyMusings on CNNs obsession with Flight 370 and other topics

Page 4 T B C P ursday, April 10, 2014MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Baker County government is only half way through the curready are predicting a sizable for 2014-15, which begins October 1. The gloomy forecast was discussed during a public forum conducted by county commissioners an hour before the bimonthly board meeting on April 1. County Manager C.J. Thompson told the board the county is facing another challenge brought about by rising costs attributed to the same thing that hit us last year: higher retirement contributions and in surance. The only positive sign about insurance costs so far, Mr. Thompson said, is that fewer employees have been coming down with serious illnesses this year, which has resulted in the submission of fewer medical claims. Claims are looking better this year, he said. Theyve been around 80 percent. It has been 100 percent. gave for last years premium hikes was mainly due to claims payments exceeding 100 percent of the premiums paid for coverage. Commissioner James Croft said that based on his review of the budget the county could face even if all departments keep their same budget (with no additional money). That would lead to the same general quandary the county has faced in the past several years: increase revenue, decrease ex penses, or a combination of both measures. A number of strategies were mentioned by the county man ager, including seeking lower employee health insurance rates through the Florida League of Cities and soliciting new bids for all other insurance policies, such as motor vehicle and general liability. Commissioner Croft also suggested the county start charging admission fees at St. Marys River Shoals Park as a way to help boost revenue and to try to negotiate lower rates for the housing of inmates in the county jail. Commissioners are expected discussions with the administration in late April or early May. Thats when department heads present their spending proposCommission Chairman Jimmy Anderson urged fellow commissioners to start putting on your thinking caps and try to come up with creative ideas for addressing the complex budget issues ahead. Just before adjourning the public forum, Commissioner Anderson announced he has been working on a plan to put together a citizen-appointed recreation board to oversee all sports activities at county-owned facilities, including scheduling of events and groups After getting caught in the middle of recent public clashes between Baker County Little League and the Baker County Travel Ball organization over indicated a desire to turn over the scheduling task to someone else. Mr. Anderson said he would update the commission on the recreation board plans in the near future. After the public forum ended the board met in regular session at 5 p.m. and began moving through a relatively light agenda, which included the adop tion of a proclamation declaring April Sexual Assault Awareness Month. According to the proclamation presented by The Womens Center of Jacksonville, which includes Baker County in its women and one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives. Also, one in six boys and one in four girls will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18 and those ages 12 to 17 are 2.5 times as likely to be victims of rape or sexual assault. The proclamation pledges Baker County to join advocates and communities across the nation, along with state and federal authorities, in playing an active role to prevent sexual violence. Morgan Moeller, director of the Womens Center of Jacksonvilles Rape Recovery Team, thanked the board for adopting the proclamation. She said its goal is to spread awareness of the pervasive problem of sexual assaults both nationally and locally. In fact, she said sex crimes are under-reported in Baker County, which is why people need to be made aware of the advocacy and support network available through the Womens Center of Jacksonville, sheriffs Commissioner Gordon Crews, a nurse in the emergency room at Fraser Memorial Hospi tal in Macclenny, said when victims of sexual assault come to the hospital staff immediately contacts the Womens Center of Jacksonville. They are very professional, very responsive and very helpful, he said. And everything is The agency operates here out of the Family Service Center at 418 S. 8th St. in Macclenny and has a 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline, 904-721-RAPE (7273). Crisis intervention and emotional support are provided for male and female survivors of sexual violence ages 12 and older. Commissioners also: Finalized an agreement between the county and the school systems adult education department to employ interns 17 and older this summer. All costs will be reimbursed to the county by a school district grant. Mr. Thompson said five to eight interns 17 to 21 years old will be employed in various de partments for a maximum of six weeks. He said the arrangement should free up some full-time county workers to concentrate on other tasks. Presented an award to the family of Freeman Dowling, who served many years in the counand the American Red Cross un til his death last year at the age of 84. He had cancer and still responded to calls, said Commissioner Anderson, who said he spected him greatly. Nobody lived and breathed it more than Freeman Dowling. I was honored to serve with him, Mr. Anderson said. Commissioner James Croft, an evangelist who preached at Mr. Dowlings funeral, said he had known Mr. Dowling all my life and didnt know anyone more dedicated to public ser vice. He was very straightfor ward, Mr. Croft said. If you did something good hed let you know it. If you did something he didnt like hed let you know that, too.BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION Fugitive is arrestedFacebook messages and that her daughters partner was 21.

But neighbors may perceive the sound as a noisy nuisance and an unwel come intrusion on their privacy. Complaining to law en forcement or zoning authori ties in Baker County, however, doesnt always resolve conflicts between neighbors when one enjoys playing loud music that others find annoying. Thats why Michael Tarquin appealed to the Baker County Commis sion last week. During a board meeting on April 1, Mr. Tarquin said his elderly parents have been sub jected for years to loud nois es, including music blaring day and night, from neighbor Wendell Vinzant Jr. on adjoin ing property off Clete Harvey Road. Not only loud music, but the neighbor also occasionally sets off fireworks, including mor tars, Mr. Tarquin said, which scares the bejeezes out of his mother and father, who suffers from Parkinsons disease and is unable to talk. Nobody wants to deal with it and I dont know why, he said. The Baker County Sher iffs Office wont do anything. They bounced it to the zoning department and they wont do anything. However, the sheriffs office and the county manager said everything legally that could be done has been done and no crime or zoning code violation has occurred. County Manager C.J. Thompson told the board that a zoning inspector responded four times to complaints from the Tarquins in the past month and each time the inspector said the complaint did not rise to the level of a violation. Mr. Thompson noted that the el derly couple reside on six acres and their neighbors home is on five acres. Well, you can hear it 1,200 feet away, Mr. Tarquin replied. I guess Im wasting every bodys time. With that, he left the board room. Afterward, Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson said it might have been helpful if the man had brought audio recordings of the music being played next door. That wouldnt be admis sible, Mr. Thompson told the chairman, to which Mr. Ander son replied that he didnt care about evidence that would be admissible in court. He said he would like to have judged for himself whether the music was too loud. Mr. Tarquin said some dep uties who responded to com plaints and heard the music playing asked the neighbor to turn the volume down, but af ter the officers left the music goes back up again. Maj. Gerald Gonzalez, the sheriffs operations chief, said on April 4 that deputies have been dispatched to the neigh borhood several times to inves tigate noise complaints lodged by the Tarquins. But theyve never issued any citations or even written an incident report. We cant find a violation, Maj. Gonzalez said, adding that responding officers always say they either didnt hear any mu sic coming from the alleged of fenders residence or they say its not excessive at all. He said the department had computer records of the dates and times officers were dispatched to the neighbor hood, but no narrative re ports containing the officers observations. Theres not a report be cause theres not a crime, he said. Unfortunately, its not against the law to be a pest. The major said the sheriffs office had offered to bring the complainants and their neigh bor together in an effort to me diate a resolution to the con tinuing dispute. But he said the effort was in vain, adding that both sides accuse each other of harassment. We offered to get both sides to come together to resolve this, he said. But we couldnt get either side to agree to do that. The zoning code states that the permitted level of noise or sound emission at the proper ty line of the lot on which the sound is produced shall not at any time exceed the aver age noise level prevailing for the same hour, as generated by street and traffic activity The code further states that noise generated by commercial operations, such as woodwork ing shops and private gun clubs and firing ranges, must not ex ceed 55 decibels, a measure ment of sound intensity, at the property line. The determination of noise level shall be measured with a sound level meter that con forms to the specifications pub lished by the American Stan dards Association, the code states. However, the county uses subjective methods rather than a scientific measuring device to accurately tell how loud a par ticular noise is. Despite its own code requirement, the county does not own a decibel meter. I dont know why, said Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston, adding that noise complaints are rare and when one is lodged zoning inspectors or deputies just use their ears instead of a machine. Mr. Tarquin said he and his parents have been frustrated by their perceived lack of coun ty support in the neighborhood squabble. He said whenever he called the sheriffs office he was told the matter would be taken care of, but each time the noise continued. He said the state attorneys office wouldnt prosecute with out a complaint from police and he was always told by the sheriffs office that theres nothing we can do about it and officers wouldnt make a formal complaint. His mother, Carol A. Tar quin, 75, said in late March that her neighbor, a retiree, has been driving us crazy, playing loud music most days from the afternoon to around 7 or 8 oclock at night, every thing from rock and country to jazz and opera. She said he also shoots guns and sets off fireworks.JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comTwo Macclenny residents were arrested for trespassing the morning of April 3 after police found both of them partially naked in the bathroom of an unoccupied residence. Lewis Churchville II, 27, was found partially unclothed and Autumn Steiger, 22, was found topless in the bathroom of the mobile home deputies Daryl Mobley and Jacob Satterwhite responded to after receiving a call about two people jumping the fence.

Deputy Minkel said he was unable to contact the accused, who have the same address on Sycamore St. on Macclennys west side.

Ms. Groves said she was standing near a nursing station when the accused approached her from the rear and struck her on the side of the face, yelling You killed your daughter.

ursday, April 10, 2014 T B C P Page 7JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comIts not discussed a lot, but prescription drug abuse and addiction is a growing problem among the areas elderly population, according to River Region Human Services. The Jacksonville-based nonprofit, which won a roughly $600,000 contract to supply substance abuse and mental health services to Baker County, has been serving seniors since 2003, some of whom resided in Baker County. Today, however, River Regions elderly services department is increasingly spending time here and has assisted more than 100 seniors to date through partnerships with the Sanderson Senior Center, the Baker County Council on Aging and local churches. What theyre finding is that substance abuse and misuse among older residents, often due to physicians misdiagnoses or over-prescribing, is being overlooked or under-identified, said Alicia Simpson, director of elderly services for River Re gion. She shared her assessment of the issue at a Community Review Panel meeting hosted by the organization at Firehouse Subs on April 2. Some of our physicians are our biggest [drug] pushers, said Ms. Simpson, a former nurse. It is a problem. One of the ways her staff helps seniors, in addition to helping them get mental health counseling, transportation services offered by the Council on Aging or supporting family members or other caregivers, is by accompanying them on doctor visits and advocating for their overall health. We can ask the doctor, Is it really necessary to prescribe 80-milligram Xanax? she said. We dont mind being an advocate for them. Because seniors often suffer from a variety of ailments, they may be given several medications. Ms. Simpson said lower dosages may be just as effective but reduce the risk of liver damage. She said her departments outreach workers also help healthcare providers better understand the senior populations needs or desires, like wanting to age with dignity at home, rather than in a nursing home. While elderly residents may be reluctant to ask for help, outreach workers can advocate on their behalf to improve their lives, whether its connecting them to resources like Meals on Wheels or asking the pharmacy to print medication labels in larger font sizes to make them easier to read. River Regions new CEO Tiffany Green wanted those attending the meeting from other organizations, like the health department and Partnership for Strong Families, to know such services are available to seniors in their homes or elsewhere in the community. They (staff) spend most of their time in the community, she said. Its sort of a hidden gem, but its a resource out there. Ms. Green said the elderly services department has been active for a decade, but more so or less so as state funding has waxed and waned. It shouldnt be a peripheral issue, but its been neglected, said Ms. Green. We want the community to know the various ways we bridge counties, she added. I know we have a great program and were ready to share it with you all. Susan Woodford, executive director of the Nassau Alcohol Crime Drug Abatement Coalition, said her organization has been targeting substance abuse issues affecting older residents in Nassau County, too. She said the coalition is investigating ways to distribute pill containers labeled with days of the week so seniors are taking the right dosages at the right time. The group is also attempting to get lock-boxes for prescription pills to deter family mem bers or visitors from stealing and abusing their medications, and conducting trainings with physicians. The group also touched on the upcoming medical marijuana ballot initiative. Ms. Woodford said health organizations are concerned about the lack of regulation contained in the measure, noting the theres no age restriction and all someone needs to obtain medical marijuana is a recommendation from a physician, not a prescription. Its probably going to pass and we want to be proactive, not reactive, she said, citing rising drop-out rates in other states that have decriminalized the drug for medical use in years past. It [marijuana use] has been normalized, and we as adults can take credit for that, said Ms. Woodford.
