The engineering and de sign work is expected to be gin within about four months and be completed by the end of 2015 on what has been labeled the Midpoint Parkway in a joint agreement between Baker County and the Florida Depart ment of Transportation. County commissioners on April 15 authorized the execu tion of an agreement with DOT for a $650,000 grant to fund the projects engineering and design. The grant deal was sealed a couple of months ago by the projects insertion as a region ally significant project in the Northeast Florida Transporta tion Planning Organization en compassing Jacksonville and surrounding counties, includ ing Baker. The truck bypass route, a two-lane corridor, will extend from near the Walmart Distri bution Center on US 90 to the intersection at Barber Road in front of Walmart SuperCenter on CR 228 and I-10.

Now, at 22, hes turned that lifelong passion into a career as a beekeeper with the World Honey Market. Mr. Peterson became interested in bees at a young age after seeing an episode of The Magic School Bus that focused on the insect. He was drawn to bees because they are the only insect that produces something edible and he re-watched the episode countless times. I annoyed the heck out of my parents for a VHS so I could record it, Mr. Peterson said. I annoyed them again by watching it over and over again. I was enthralled by it. The interest continued into middle school when he and his younger brother sold can dy at school to earn money to buy bee hives. They eventually saved up enough and Mr. Peterson was allowed to take a half-day off school in eighth grade to purchase the first four hives for $125 each. Although only one of the four initial hives survived the first year, he wasnt discour aged. Instead, he used it as a learning experience as he continued to grow as a beekeeper. Through his dedication to the craft, his collection of colonies has blossomed from the original four to the 500 that are spread across several bee yards near the Georgia Bend that make up his business. I was tenacious about it, Mr. Peterson said. I didnt want it to whip me. Its a difficult endeavor. I got an education in agriculture from the school of hard knocks. The foundation for his current business was laid during high school when he was a member of the Future Farm ers of America. With the encouragement of his agriculture teacher Greg Johnson, Mr. Peterson won the FFA State Proficiency Award for Agro Entrepreneurship in 2010. He competed against other stu dents who specialized in cows, chickens and hogs with only one other entrant working with bees. Being No. 1 in the state is pretty big, Mr. Peterson said. It got me a lot of recognition. He won more than $500 with the FFA award, which he was determined to apply to his business. Mr. Peterson conducted a series of trades and transactions, including trading a motorcycle for a piece of property in Waycross, Ga., to get the money to start World Honey Market. Now, his business has grown and he produced more than 29,000 pounds of honey in 2013 and he plans to produce even more this year.

He is an in-school suspen sion teacher at John E. Ford Elementary School in Jack sonville and a 20-year veteran teacher. The father of four has a bachelors degree in educa tion from the University of Florida and a masters degree in public administration from UNF. He was raised in Gainesville and taught at Macclenny Elementary for two years before transferring to Duval County. He is the second challenger for the District 4 seat occupied by Jody Anderson of Glen. other term in District 2, and the vacant District 3 post is sought so far by former school superintendent Paula Barton, Clayton Rhoden. From page 1Deputies jump into clerk raceware stores in Jacksonville. World Honey Market honey can also be bought in sever al Ace Hardware locations in central Florida and along the states east and west coasts. Mr. Peterson also rents his bees out across the country to help other crops with pollination. He sends the colonies out on a semi-regular schedule, including Lake Wales in the early part of the year and Wisconsin in the early summer. He also recently sent his bees to California for the first time. He said it was a good learning experience for him and it was a good trip for the bees since there wasnt much blooming locally. But as happy as he was to extend his business to California, he said he still prefers the scenery of Florida. The coolest thing I do is the Central Florida groves, Mr. Peterson said. He takes his colonies to Iron Mountain, the high point in Florida, where he said it looks like hes in Italy when he looks over the groves from the high vantage point. Although it is spreading his business nationally, he said renting his bees out is one of the most stressful parts of his job. Its always a risk, Mr. Peterson said. Theres so much that can happen on the trips that itll put some gray hairs on your head real quick. You have to maintain the attitude that anything that can happen is going to happen and you have to keep plugging along. To keep up with his growth in business, the young beekeeper spends several hours a day at one of his bee yards going through the colonies, where he is stung upwards of 50 times. He said he is currently working on collecting the honey to bottle it to sell. Mr. Peterson said the toughest part of beekeeping, whether its as a hobby or commercially, is keeping the insects alive. People dont realize the amount of labor that goes into each bottle of honey, he said. This is intense work. Usually, 30 percent of your colonies in a well-managed environment will die off. You can lose up to 80 percent in a blink of an eye if the colonies are poorly managed. Another unforeseen issue Mr. Peterson has faced has been the name World Honey Market. The original plan was to collect the best honey from around the world. The idea didnt manifest, but the name still stuck. Mr. Peterson said the name could be hindering his business because people may not think they are getting local honey when they see it in a store. As a result, he is considering changing the name to the Baker Bee Co. within the next year. A name change isnt the only major change that Mr. Peter son could be facing in the next 12 months. His honey will also be available at Ace Hardware stores all through Florida and there is also a possibility it will be sold at Publix supermarkets. With all his success thus far in beekeeping, Mr. Peterson remains optimistic for what his future holds in the field. You have to be tenacious about accomplishing your goals, he said. You have to network yourself and meet other people in your area. It will just keep building from there. Its definitely a snowball effect.

We post news, events, links to photos, video and other content at www.bakercounty press.com.I think I see where this is headed. This week we learn the U.S. Department of bastion of selective enforce signaling it wants to clear the federal prison system of nonviolent drug offenders (never mind that most have pleaded down from serious crimes). Kinda like its clearing the pe nal system of ICE inmates who have committed crimes. Among the many rewards of twice electing Barack Obama president is the easing of societys strictures against the use of drugs like marijua na. The president himself has made no secret he toked his way through late adolescence, and he believes pot is no more harmful than alcohol. Beside the point, since medical experts contend that both are dangerous to ones physical well-being. And then theres the risk that both can accelerate a persons yen to dip into stronger stuff. Last weekend in Colorado, where recreational use of marijuana is now legal, tens of thousands showed up for a massive celebration in Denver that, if the photographic images are accurate, appeared to be little more than gyrating throngs of the zoned out. Technically one is not sup posed to puff away in public but there were only 47 people cited for doing so. One suspects the theme of that event and hundred others like it celebrating the /20 pot holiday was as much to dom in public as it was to recognize the laws are changing. By the way, two of the acts entertaining the crowd were Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog. Can you say apropos? As someone who, ahem, partook of the weed occasionally during his young and foolish post-adolescence, observing what is surely a trend toward relaxing criminal penalties on drug use begs this question. Is this really a good time in our quest to preserve a functioning republic to introduce yet more substances with the potential to turn us into zombies? What most of us recognize as dysfunctional leadership at the highest level, encompass ing all major political parties, is ultimately a consequence of the fact that half (or more) of voting age people in the United States do not participate in the political process. Not evor get involved in grass-roots politics, but would it be too much to ask that all of us vote? The trend is disturbing, as are its repercussions. So lets just say all 50 states legalize pot, and the result is citizens drift around aimlessly in a cloud of marijuana smoke. Another 20 percent or so are so fond of booze (and the increasing ease with which one can live on the government dole) that they are incapable of worthwhile contribution to the commonwealth. See where this is going? Every obligation removed from what is required of the citizenry in a functioning representative republic (most vital the ability to critically analyze who is really looking out for the good of the nation) weakens that republic. Personal responsibility for ones actions is one of those obligations, as is caring for those who depend on us, and doing so with a clear head. That, it seems, is the reason the pot revolution should bother us. We dont need more inducements to make us, well, more stoopid.Headed toward Land of Free, Home of the Stoned? referee told the boxers. No head butting; no hitting below the belt. When the bell to end the round rings, I want both of you to go straight to your corners. Is that understood? The boxers nod. All right. Then lets pinky promise and have a good The boxers gers, then go to their corners and the bell rings for There are many forms of bonded commitment. Shaking hands, signing treaties, the giving and exchanging of rings. But in the South there is one more binding than all others. The pinky promise. When you are a kid, it is the ultimate sign of intent. Prom ising is important a binding contract, but pinky promising is even more important. For a kid to break the pinky promise, means being branded a liar and a cheat and being made an outcast. I remember the outrage on one of my childrens faces when they came home from school to tell about an incident at recess during which one of their friends broke this bond. But he pinky promised. They were scandalized that someone would break a pinky promise. The mere thought that something like that could happen shook the very foundations of their world. The next day, retribution came down upon the offenders head as no one would choose him at recess. Nobody wanted a pinky promise breaker on their team. There is guilt by association. No one wants to be painted with that brush. So many important issues could be solved by that simple act of linking the two little inherent vulnerability of sepa rate parties linked together and made stronger by that small act. It is far more effec tive than the handshake. When you learn to pinky promise, it sticks with you. I remember watching rehearsals for The Old Time Gospel Jubilee over the summer. My wife and Kristie Shook played sisters who didnt get along, but at one point they agree to a truce for the duration of the radio show that takes place during the play. They seal the deal with a pinky promise. I had to smile since I hadnt directed that. In fact, I probably wouldnt have thought of something that perfect. They came to it as something natural that sisters would do to seal the pact. Dont you wish that everyone would recognize the importance of the pinky promise? It would be a much better world. Example: The world was the forces of Nazi Germany poured across the border with Poland in a pre-dawn inva sion on a massive scale, the scratchy old radio broadcast intoned. It is clear by this act of aggression that Hitlers earlier promises to respect Polish sovereignty were only words. Speaking from the steps of Number 10 Downing Street, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlin was clearly shaken by the days events. We certainly did not see this as a possibility. Chancellor Hitler assured us in the strongest terms that he had no intention of military action against Poland. You all of myself and the Chancellor pinky promising on the steps of the Reichstag in Berlin last month. Mr. Prime Minister, what will this mean? Chancellor Hitler broke a pinky promise he made not only to us but to the world. This means war! I can totally see it. It is clear that not everyone accepts the solemnity of the pinky promise. Earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to get Russian President Vladimir Putin to agree to a pinky promise regarding peace with Ukraine. What is this Pinky Prom ise? railed Putin. Is he calling me a Communist implying that I am pinko? I refuse to agree to the authority of the pinky promise. The Russian people will not pinky promise with the USA. A shame isnt it? Imagine President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner giving the pinky promise about working together to pass legislation. It would be a sign of hope that the country would be ready to move forward. The simple, but powerful, pinky promise.

Numerous repairs have been required to fix damaged curbs run over by the big rigs that routinely travel from Interstate 10 through Macclennys com mercial core to reach the dis tribution center. In addition to easing local traffic congestion, the Mid point Parkway will open up op portunities for economic de velopment and the creation of hundreds of new jobs on more than 700 acres of woodland that have been bypassed by developers. The grant money will come from the states Transportation Regional Incentive Program, referred to simply as TRIP. It is one of many grants the state will be awarding totaling $5.7 million throughout DOTs 18-county District 2. Ordinarily, local participat ing governments are required to fund half the cost of such grants but Baker County was granted a Rural Economic De velopment Initiative waiver. Local officials have said the county could not afford to fund $325,000 for its share of the grant. The funding agreement was presented to the county com mission last week by James Bennett, DOTs urban trans portation development manag er in Jacksonville. While roads and highways remain DOTs primary trans portation concerns, Mr. Ben nett noted that spinoff benefits from TRIP grants expand the scope. TRIP is an economic de velopment program, said Mr. Bennett, a Baker County na tive who recently announced his candidacy this year for the seat now held by Commissioner Adam Giddens. The county will be respon sible for obtaining right-of-way for the route and hiring a con tractor to conduct the design work. Because raw land in the proposed corridor will become accessible to developers, Mr. Bennett said he would expect those land owners to donate some or all of the land neces sary to build the road. The area, which is served by a CSX rail line that runs east and west in front of the Walmart warehouse, is viewed as prime land for an industri al park and major employment center. After the engineering and design is completed the coun ty can apply for construction funds from TRIP, or other grant programs available for economic development in rural counties, Mr. Bennett said. In other business commissioners: Reviewed a list of countyowned properties prepared by County Manager C.J. Thomp son at the request of Commis sioner James Croft, who said he wanted the information to see if the county had any surplus property that could be sold to help balance the budget. The list contained 75 sepa rate parcels totaling 2,987.49 acres, including 2,631.49 acres at St. Marys River Shoals Park. The lengthy list makes it seem as though the county owns a lot of land, the county man ager said, but it includes ev ery right-of-way and ditch the county owns. The number of properties also appear to be more numer ous than they actually are, he said, because many separate parcels make up one single en tity, such as Shoals Park, which comprises 13 individual par cels on Odis Yarborough Road, Crews Road and CR 125 North. The only piece of land the county owns that is truly sur plus, Mr. Thompson told com missioners, is a 20-acre parcel the county obtained with recre ational grant money a number of years ago on the north side of US 90 west of Glen St. Mary. Its more valuable as tim berland than anything else, he said, adding that after the county acquired the land for adult softball fields a survey showed it had too much wet land to be useful for recre ational purposes. He said its possible the county could try to do some horse trading and exchange the property for a more suit able site somewhere else. But it wont be easy, he said. We know theres going to be limited interest in the property, given its location, Mr. Thomp son said.

The truck rotated and overturned on the southbound shoulder and collided with a tree. Mr. Kafouse, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to UF Health Jacksonville. His wife and passenger Lisa Ann Harvey, 48, was wearing a seat belt and was not injured.

He was wanted for violating probation for armed robbery. MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Baker Countys Emergency Medical Ser vices department is on track to bring in a little more revenue than it did last year, partly due to new billing and collection procedures implemented last year. That was the good news delivered to county commissioners during a workshop last week to review the departments success at reducing bad debts generated by former patients who received services but never paid for them, or at least never paid the entire debt off. However, while some progress has been made toward collecting on delinquent accounts, commissioners learned during the informal meeting on the afternoon of April 15 there is plenty of room for improvement. For example, expenditures still exceed revenues, just not by quite as big a margin as in the past, according to a report presented by EMS director David Richardson, who supervises a crew of 18 full-time emergency rescue I know there have been concerns expressed about the costs of EMS, Mr. Richardson told the board. We had hoped to cut costs more this year. We tried buying bulk money. began October 1, totaled $637,015 compared with $1,181,816 during the entire previous budget year. On a more positive note, he pointed out year totaled $452,691, which is slightly more than half of the entire $888,169 collected during 2012-13. Hopefully, revenues will continue to increase as collections procedures become no guarantees that the second half of the year cant predict whats going to happen in the second half, Mr. Richardson said. One major mechanical breakdown of a rescue unit, for example, could add a huge exnot anticipated and not budgeted. Those are just things we cant control, he said. In addition to collecting past due bills, the department increased its charges for transporting patients last year to boost revenue. That prompted a question from Commissioner Adam Giddens, who wanted to know how the department calculates what its trip charges will be. We go the highest we can charge thats acceptable by Medicare, Mr. Richardson said. Medicare is our main payer. The department is still experiencing difmany with private insurance plans or no insurance at all, he said. Why is that? Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson asked. Sometimes its because claims were denied claims must be reprocessed multiple times, Mr. Richardson said, adding that other times federal Medicaid bureaucrats deny a claim because they didnt think rescue was necessary. When a 911 call comes in and a rescue unit responds, the patient, who might be an accident victim or someone who simply doesnt feel well, cannot be told they dont need EMS, Mr. Richardson said, because the departments responsibility is to care for the patient and worry about being paid later. With some of the denied Medicaid claims he said the county can appeal and, hopefully, get paid eventually, but some times we never get paid. For the past several years the county has into emergency reserve funds, much of which has been caused by the imbalance between revenues and expenditures in EMS. According to data presented by Mr. Richardson, the departments deficit is much greater on charges for medical services than it is on charges for transporting patients to the hospital. In 2012-13, EMS collected $419,402 in transportation charges versus $343,837 in expenditures, leaving a surplus of $75,566. But revenue for medical services that year totaled only $468,767 and cost taxpayers $837,979, for a loss of $369,212. As of March 31 this year, halfway through ment reported $452,691 in total revenue and of $184,324.51. By comparison, in 2012-13 the EMS de partment received $888,169 in total revenue and spent $1,181,816.70, which left a gaping enue funds. A Texas collections agency hired last fall was given a number of old debts to start working on in December to hopefully gain otherwise lost revenue, Mr. Richardson told commissioners. But costs also have spiraled upward in the past year, primarily due to increased employee insurance premiums, increased contributions for employee retirement plans and highExpenditures based on uncontrollable increases have had a negative effect budget wise, but hopes are they will level off as reve nue is expected to continue an upward trend, Mr. Richardson said. He and County Manager C.J. Thompson time to prove hiring the company was a good idea. Their incentive is to collect the maximum amount of revenue because they dont get paid anything unless they collect, Mr. Thompson ery dollar they collect for the county. We want to pay them more money because that means were getting more revenue. Not only do the collection agents go after individual patients, but they also continue efforts to collect from Medicaid and private insurers. Commissioners thanked Mr. Richardson and the county manager for the presentation, which they said was helpful in giving them a job the collections agency is doing. I just want to make sure they are effective and this is working, said Commissioner Giddens, who had called for the workshop. revenue shows they are doing a good job, Mr. Richardson said.EMS still in the hole, but less so is scal year is better, so far, but we cant predict whats going to happen in the second half.David RichardsonBaker County EMS DirectorInjured as truck overturnsDisabled pickup is stolen on SR 121 S.A High Springs, FL man whose pickup broke down on SR 121 south of Macclenny late on April 16 called the sheriffs department the next day when his insurance company informed him the vehicle was gone when a tow truck was sent to retrieve it.

Baker County is one of only three locations in the Southeastern U.S. to be named to the so-called FAC Learning Network, which counts most of its members in the southwestern and northwestern reaches of the country. The networks goal is to encourage the development and sharing of best practices and innovations in order to accelerate the adoption of fire adapted community concepts nationwide, according to the networks website, facnetwork.org. Its an effort managed by the Watershed Research and Training Center in Hayfork, CA and The Nature Conservancy based in Arlington, VA. The community of Taylor has been a Firewise Community for many years and has had several wildfires threaten the community, explained Ronda Sutphen, wildfire prevention coordinator for the Florida Forest Service, who submitted Baker County for inclusion in the network. The end goal of a Firewise Community is to become fire adapted; which is working toward the goal of having the community be able to withstand a wildfire without the intervention of fire fighters, she said. The success of Taylor as a Firewise Community and the overwhelming support of people who live there prompted us to apply to become a Fire Adapted Community hub. Baker County has always been proactive in wildfire prevention and mitigation and it made sense to include Baker County in the FAC process. Taylor, with about 400 homes and 1000 residents, is surrounded by more than 700,000 acres of state and national forest lands. It has narrow dirt roads and a limited water supply. Such characteristics make it especially vulnerable to the threats associated with wildfires, namely the loss of life and property. The Florida Forest Service reports that during the last decade four major wildfires have burned thousands of acres in the area, though no structures were lost. It was back in 2006 that officials with the county, state and federal fire agencies began their quest to make Taylor a Firewise Community. The first step was forming a wildfire protection plan that identified ways to reduce the potential damage that could be caused by such blazes. The plans strategies included prescribed burning to eliminate wildfire fuels, clearing brush and other fuels near homes and other structures with an annual Firewise clean-up day, firefighter training, community education and building an 11-mile, 30-foot-wide fire line encircling the community. The latter was completed in 2007, just in the nick of time. Soon after, Taylor was tested by the largest wildfire to erupt in the southeastern U.S., the 116,000-acre Bugaboo Wildfire that ignited in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Some 200 homes were evacuated in Taylor due to the fire, but the freshly cut fire lines allowed firefighters to back burn quickly with little preparation needed, saving valuable time. The following year Taylor was recognized as a Firewise Community in November, 2008. The fire calmed down when it ran into the area that had been previously burned, allowing firefighters to control the fire. If not for prescribed burning and mitigation lines, the fire would have burned through the community of Taylor, said Ms. Sutphen. Since 2008, the Florida Forest Service reports, community residents and fire agency representatives have logged nearly 3000 hours of wildfire protection activities worth an estimated $75,000. Baker County is made up of a close-knit group of people who work very well together, said Ms. Sutphen. The variety of partnerships and multiple agencies supporting the process is not a common occurrence. Other hubs in the FAC network will see how this unique partnership works together toward a common goal. Baker County, meanwhile, will have the opportunity to learn from the 17 other communities in the network, most of them from wildfire ravaged states out West. Wildfire is often seen as a western problem when in fact there are just as many wildfires and homes lost in the South, Ms. Sutphen said. Fires in the South are normally not as big as fires in the West but the urban interface issue, where wildlands and homes intermix, is a much bigger problem.Firewise eorts pay o for Taylor area; on exclusive listing PHOTO BY MICHELE HODGES Heritage Park hosts COA Easter egg hunt Heritage Park in Macclenny hosted an Easter egg hunt for seniors with the Council on Aging April 17.

Page10APRIL 24, 2014 JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Wildcats strung together a two-out sixth-inning rally to pull out an exciting 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the rival Bishop Kenny Crusaders on April 22 to advance to Thursdays District 3-5A championship game. Mikal Flores blasted the goahead two-RBI double to deep left centerfield to score Tyler Wendel and Jared Crews. Wendel reached base earlier in the inning on a two-out single and Crews was hit by a pitch to advance Wendel to second. There is no other guy we wanted up in that situation, coach Fred Matricardi said of Flores. I had no doubt he would get a hit. The Crusaders wouldnt go down quietly in the final in ning, though. Winning pitcher Garrett Yarborough allowed a leadoff single and the runner advanced to second with a sacrifice bunt during the next at bat. Jordan Kennedy then took the mound with one out and a runner in scoring position. The pressure didnt seem to faze him as he struck out the first batter he faced and sealed the teams spot in the district championship game by forcing a ground ball for the final out. The dramatic comeback was a result of a slow start defensively by the Wildcats. The team had three errors in the first five innings and most of Bishop Kennys runs were a direct result of Baker Countys miscues. The Crusaders took an early 1-0 lead after a wild pitch from starting pitcher Jared Crews in the first inning. Bishop Kenny added two more runs in the third inning and took a 3-0 lead after Baker Countys right fielder dropped a routine fly ball. Even with the deficit, coach Matricardi said he knew his team had the heart to keep competing. Weve been doing it all year, he said. I knew they would fight back. Even if they didnt win, they wouldve fought back and made it a close game. They did a great job. Dylan Rowe connected with a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning to pull the Cats within one. The double scored Crews and Flores, who reached base on a double of his own. The big fifth inning set the team up for the opportunity to come back during the sixth inning, coach Matricardi said. Although it took until the fifth inning to get runs on the board, the Cats were hitting well all game. Crews led the team with three hits, including a first-inning double. With the win, the boys also guaranteed themselves a playoff berth for the second year in a row. Last year, the team was the district runner-up and lost in the opening round of the playoffs to the eventual state champions Ponte Vedra. They are hoping for a different result this year, which starts with winning the district title on April 24 against Stanton. We had to go on the road last year, coach Matricardi said. We want to host it this year and play in front of our fans and on our field. Its conducive to how we play the game.

Each of them are working on their techniques to improve their totals as much as possible before April 25. By doing so, they are not only helping their own chances of placing well, but also the teams chance of winning state. Everybody wants to win individually, but its something special when you have the brotherhood of the team, Chambers said. Were The boys have grown together as a tight-knit unit in recent weeks after the tragic death of former Wildcat weightlifter Ray Adam Manhe sees a lot of similarities between this years squad and the one that one state three years ago. Its the same to me, he said. We were all close and did everything together, and this year is the same. Were all family. The boys are expecting to bring home another championship this year; not as individuals, but as a team. This is the greatest team I have ever been a part of, McElfresh said.
