Theyre pinning their hopes on new signs stating specific opening and closing hours of the park. The exact times havent been determined yet, but they will be from early morning to early evening. Right now, the sheriffs oftell anyone to leave because its a 24-hour park, said City Manager Phil Rhoden. Efforts to crack down on undesirable behavior at Memorial Park, centrally located between Eighth Street and West Boulevard, have had some success, including stepped-up patrols by deputies, Mr. Rhoden said. However, vandalism continues to be a problem and some families are reluctant to take their children there because of the presence of unruly youths who sit or lie down on picnic benches smoking, uttering profanities and sometimes refusing to leave when parents and their kids arrive for picnics, he said. Families feel threatened to go up there, Mr. Rhoden told the mayor and city commissioners at a board meeting on May 13 when the sign proposal was discussed. In a subsequent interview on May 22, the city manager said it is time the city took additional steps to put a stop to illegal, disruptive or other undesirable behaviors in the park, particularly at night. Were at the point where we need to go beyond what we have been doing, Mr. Rhoden said, acknowledging that trying to keep people out of a public park is not easy if theyre not clearly breaking any laws. After discussing the issue at the May 13 board meeting, city commissioners gave the city manager and his staff authority to designate park hours and the wording to be displayed on the signs, which were suggested by Had you watched the fabled Sunday evening news magazine 60 Minutes on CBS earlier this month, you likely caught the segment on a Sudanese clinic that does corrective heart operations on African children suffering from rheumatic diseases. A portion of the broadcast room as an Italian surgeon repaired the heart of an 11-year-old African girl whose lifeexpectancy without the operation was dismally short. The person in scrubs with mostly his back to the camera running the heart-lung machine was Kyle Hunter, a native of Glen St. Mary now living in Los Anlast year during one of Mr. Hunters frequent volunteer mercy missions to backwater and largely forgotten parts of the world. Though the portion didnt make it into the broadcast the evening of May 11, Mr. Hunter was interviewed by correspondent Clarissa Ward, and the 37-year-old graduate of both Baker County High School and the University of Florida explained his duties as a perfusionist, a highly-trained specialist who monitors a machine that keeps blood circulating and a patient breathing during heart bypass operations. (You can see the entire broadcast, including the interview, by going to the 60 Minutes website.) The son of Ann and Tommy Hunter, Kyle Hunters passion for using his skills in Third World settings has taken him tals in Africa and South America.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a 2004 Ford Expedition driven by Shomari Wilcox, 27, of Macclenny was eastbound shortly after 6 pm, and crossed over into the opposite lane west of Interstate 10 through the north shoulder. It was rotating when it struck a tree, according to Trooper J. Beagle, ejecting 8-year-old Shamariana Wilcox of Macclenny. Passenger Tiffany Ann Doss, 23, was taken to UF Health Jacksonville (Shands). The driver was taken to Shands at Lake City, as were the ejected child and passen ger Danial Thomas, 26, of Glen St. Mary. Four other children ages 1 through 6 were released to family members. All occupants were restrained by seat belts. A severe weather front was moving through the area at the time with drenching rain, lightning and some hail, mostly along a corridor south of I-10. In an accident earlier that day, Frank lin Taylor, 81, of Sanderson was seriously injured when his 1999 Chevrolet station wagon overturned on CR 125 after going out of control as he evaded a deer. Mr. Taylor was southbound near the intersection with CR 127 at Cuyler just before 10 am. Trooper M.C.

Page 2 T B C P ursday, May 29, 2014JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker Countys third graders and eighth graders outperformed the state as a whole on recent FCAT 2.0 testing, the final administration of the test before a new assessment is rolled out next year. Some 67 percent of third graders here passed the math FCAT and 64 percent passed the reading portion, compared to 58 percent and 57 percent in Florida, respectively, according to results released last week by the Florida Department of Ed ucation. More specifically, 62 percent of the third graders at Macclenny Elementary and 73 percent at Westside Elementary passed the math test, which means they scored a 3 or higher on the assessments 6-point scale. That equates to a 3-point year-to-year drop for Macclenny in math while West side pushed its passing rate up 2 percentage points in math. The latter schools math results show the same year-to-year gains, but Macclennys passing rate in math fell by 11 points. Both elementary schools had the same share of students pass the reading test this year 64 percent but thats a 2-point jump for Westside and a 3-point slide for Macclenny. The state also released the outcomes from FCAT writing tests taken by fourth, eighth and 10th graders last February. The middle school shined brightest in writing with 60 percent of eighth graders passing with a score of 3.5 on the 6-point scale. The passing score was upped from 3 begin ning in 2013. The middle schools per formance represents a big improvement, up 19 percentage points from a year ago. The high schools 10th graders, however, went from 65 percent passing the writing exam last year to 55 percent this year. Across Florida, 64 percent of 10 graders passed. Keller Intermediates fourth graders also made progress with 44 percent passing the writing assessment compared to 41 percent last year, and 53 percent statewide this year, which was a drop of 4 percentage points. BCHS Principal Tom Hill offered some additional context to this years results by e-mail. He compared his school to other high schools in the state, rather than stacking BCHS against itself in years past. He said 1 percent of the students here got perfect writing scores of 6, while only 36 of the states 595 high schools, or about 5 percent, had a higher share of perfect scores. Only 9 percent of the high schools statewide had higher percentages of 5.5 scores than BCHS. To get a 5.5, one of the two test reviewers must score the writing test a 6. Mr. Hill added that only 24 percent of schools in the state had a higher share of 5 scores than his 10th graders. Looking at 5 and 4.5 scores, Mr. Hill argues BCHS is still ahead of most of Floridas secondary schools. Only 24 per cent of the high schools had a higher share of 5 scores. Forty-three percent had a higher share of 4.5 scores. He also said a new writing program is planned for the 2014-15 school year. All teachers at the high school will receive training dur ing pre-planning in August, he said. The campus-wide effort will help the staff prepare our students to meet the expecta tions of the new Florida stan dards. Mr. Hill was alluding to the new assessment the Florida Standards in English Language and Mathematics that will replace the three FCAT 2.0 tests in reading, math and writing with one comprehensive testing instrument. While the FCAT Writes assessment sunsets this year, the ability to write effectively is absolutely essential. BCHS will continue to work purposefully to prepare our students for their future success, sad Mr. Hill. E-mails seeking comments on the latest FCAT scores from principals at BCMS, Keller, Macclenny and Westside were not returned by press time. The districts Susan Voorhees, the director of accountability and special programs, however, said the district was proud of the gains students made this year. Assistant City Manager Roger Yarborough said the proposed signs will make it easier for deputies to run people out of the park at night because then they will actually be trespassing. Mr. Rhoden said last week that the closing time probably will be around 9 pm during the six months of daylight saving time and about 7 pm the other six months of the year. The park, also known simply as City Park, has always attracted visitors to the duck pond on the grounds. But it became even more popular after it was upgraded a few years ago with a state recreation grant to install playground equipment, large picnic pavilions, a lighted 1/2mile walking track and a public restroom. Since then, vandals have damaged or destroyed most of the wooden picnic tables and re peatedly damaged playground equipment and toilets and sinks in the restroom. Mr. Rhoden painted on the picnic pavilions. Most people, however, obey signs listing the following prohibitions in the park: No skate boarding, fishing (except for children under 12 and disabled or senior citizens), swimming, unleashed dogs or alcoholic bev erages. The people who seem to snub their nose at city rules and laws leave evidence of their presence on the ground for cleanup crews to remove in the mornings in the form of empty beer cans and bottles, as well as cigarette butts and other litter. The vandalism and other unlawful conduct have contin ued despite another sign still attached to a fence in front of the restroom, which states: Warning! Video Surveillance in Use on These Premises. But the sign was a ruse, a failed attempt to thwart mischievousness or illegal behavior. Those were fake cameras, Mr. Rhoden said, adding that he didnt know what happened to them. If the city buys real video surveillance equipment, which has been under consideration for several months, the cameras will have to be cleverly disguised or well concealed, the city manager said. We wouldnt want anybody shooting at them with BB guns, he said.

The Italian-based relief agency Emergency that staffs the clinics makes sure its volunteers are well cared-for in dormitories, hotels or hostels, with as many creature comforts as feasible. They know we have to rest, we have to have safe food and a safe environment to keep functioning, so were pretty well taken care of, says Mr. Hunter. Over the years, its also allowed me to develop a lot of colleagues internationally, people I would never been able to come across. Kyle Hunter tries to make it back to his parents in Cuyler twice a year or so (he is with them this week) and stays in touch with friends in Baker County via Facebook and other social media. But his life has shifted away from northeast Florida, with a friend base centered in Arizo na and California, and places far beyond that many people a map. He has a skill that serves him well in California, and for which there is a pressing need, literally world-wide. Hes positioned himself in the best of two divergent worlds one with an enviable standard of living and the other that keeps him focused on what really matters.

Unemployment fell statewide and nationally in April as well, to 5.7 percent in Florida and 5.9 percent in the U.S. University of North Florida economics professor Paul Mason attributes the job gains to a stronger housing market and shrinking labor force, accord ing to a recent report from The Financial News and Daily Record in downtown Jackson ville. Those not actively seeking work, who may still want a job, are not included in the workforce for the purposes of calculating unemployment. Looking at the Baker County data from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, which compiles labor market statistics for the U.S. Department of Labor, the size of the labor force here, 12,505, is down from March by 41 workers, but its up 276 work ers from a year ago. The estimated number of workers with jobs has steadily climbed from 11,410 in April, 2013 to 11,847 in March, 2014 and then to 11,899 last month. Meanwhile, the number of unemployed has declined from 819 in April of last year to 699 last month, and then to 606 in April.

Is it just teens being teens? And who should take responsibility the school faculty, the yearbook students, the principal? Shelby Driggers: As a pre vious graduate of BCHS, I am extremely disappointed in the content of this years yearbook. Yearbooks are meant for school activities such as homecomings, proms, sports, clubs, etc. Its incredibly upsetting to know that students are able to put this type of trash into a book of school memories. I personally believe its not only the students fault, but more so the teachers and faculty who over see it. Gage Combs: I dont think it concerns anyone who isnt a student to be honest. I mean, if you dont agree with it, dont open it up and ip through the pages. Just like most have stopped picking up the press because all the articles they dont agree with. Anyone else agree? Melissa Elaine Haines: As parent Im gonna add two cents. I think it is completely ridiculous that there is not even a team photo of our football team. These boys work their tails o and get a crappy page layout to show for it. I was very unhappy with the yearbook. After pay ing a small mint for my daughDear Editor: Often teachers are recognized in the community as heroes, but never singled out. I would like to thank fourth grade teacher Jill Johnson at Keller Intermediate for her motherly instincts. She helped my child this year, kept a smile on his face, and encouraged him during of his life. She even carried my weight on her shoulders and supplied the box of tissues. Its a good feeling to know you are leaving your child with a loving, caring, special woman. Keller wouldnt be the same without her.Allison Grant MacclennyDear Editor: Today (May 23) was the last day for the seniors at BCHS, and for the last four years I have watched these children grown into young adults. Next Friday on graduation night they will walk across the stage and into adulthood. I pray Ive touched them just a small bit in repayment of the many lessons and bless ings they have given me. I pray that God will watch over these youngsters and bless them and put those that will help to guide then in their path. I will sincerely miss the class of 2014! Good luck and God bless you all.Deneese Hinson Mixon Macclenny (The writer is a 14-year employee at Baker High, currently a classroom facilitator for dual en rollment, virtual and study hall students.)Dear Editor: After reading The Baker County Press and The Florida TimesUnion that a recreation advisory board has been proposed for Bak er County, I would like to state that the re-establishment of this board would be a very good step. We had such a board during the time that I served as recreation director. ing on several advisory boards, I would like to make the following suggestions on some ideas on how the make-up should look. These are not all of my ideas, but observations on how other recreation boards are composed: should be a representative from each commissioner district, who is not a league person or representative of any league or sport. Their main interest should be the best aspects of recreation and parks, not only in their community but in the county as a whole. currently exists in the county. More can be added as needed. The person should be elected by each organization. baseball, softball, soccer, youth football and any other current programs, with the vision to develop a master recreation plan and policies for the county. the commissioners. Use some of the bed tax monies to promote recreation and sports outside of the county to bring more money into Baker County for these events (this can be done). through turkeys and also to support the continued funding of the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program. Funds have been scarce for the past few years, but there are programs that will be funded through the program this year. The Florida Recreation and Parks Association, of which I am a member, adopted the slogan It Starts in Parks and imagine what could start here in parks in Baker County by having an advisory board that cares. But if this board is overloaded with coaches, league parents and those who only support the activities they or their children are involved in, it will fail. I hope my suggestions are helpful. Margaret Mitzi Nelson MacclennySuggestions for recreation boardStudents a blessingHigh praise for teacherBaker Countys public schools will bid farewell this Friday to another group of about 300 students in the graduating class of Baker County High School, and the annual ritual at Memorial Stadium always triggers thoughts that lie on the sentimental side. Those good looking graduates decked out in cap and gown likely have little or no actual memories of September 11, 2001. The date seems like yesterday to some of us older geezers, but most of this years years old. For sure, theyve seen the dramatic videos played over at each years anniversary, but they dont have the perspective of years to grasp how much the world has changed while they worked their way up through elementary, middle and then high school. They are going out into a world of college campuses and workplaces vastly different from the generation before them. Theyll be looking to markets that are changing rapidly and demanding skills their fathers and mothers didnt need to have. The successful ones will grasp the fact that, while communicating has evolved into a rather soulless and detached activity the past de cade, lives of achievement will still require traditional personal connections. The connects that matter will still be with spouses, children, best friends, business associates, church families and the like. You can text all day, but eventually youll have to look em in the eye. Theyll need to learn, eiuring it out themselves, that Facebook is not reality; its merely a contributors percep tion of reality. What posters put out there for all the world to see isnt necessarily received by others the way they intend. All social media, after all, are secondary to the real world, merely a way of keep ing in touch like the old tele phone in the hallway was a half-century ago. Theyre not a substitute, and those who believe so are destined for a lonely existence. And while were on the subject of advice, its probably best to leave the fake potion of self-esteem on the grass leave the stadium Friday night to celebrate. Contrary to what many in the education establishment still believe, self-esteem is not conveyed, its earned from seeing through lifes challenges and reaching worthwhile goals. If it helps kids get through school in the early years, okay, but assuming youre something special will get you virtually nowhere in the real world. Dump it. against what will surely be a train wreck if this country continues on the path its been on in recent years. Reject the dominant message that someone else will take care of you, and the challenges that face you are so great you cant make it without dependency on others, most critically the government. hope those diplomas handed out on the stage Friday night signify the recipients are equipped with the basic skills to contribute to the world theyre stepping into.Reections on the graduation LIKE US ON FACEBOOKTO JOIN THE DISCUSSION ters senior page and buying two yearbooks one for each kid, yeah I was a little mad to say the least. Ashley Kay: As a recent graduate and a mother I think its very inappropriate to put a trashy comment in the year book. The yearbook may be for the students who went to school, but its not just parents or the students looking at it. Little brothers and sisters look at them too. That section should have been looked over and ommited by the teacher over the yearbook. Not to mention it re ects poorly on the school for allowing such trash to be placed in the yearbook! Jason Knabb: Folks half of you probably cant remember when the last time you looked at your yearbook, but I bet youve colored someones teeth black or wrote and obscene gesture over someones face, that you hope your kid dont see one day. Folks whats done is done, let it go. Mackenzie Jade Wingard: Personally, I feel like this has been blown way out of pro portion, as many of you would agree. Majority of the people who are obsessed with the situation and insist on portraying such negativity are those to whom it does not even concern. So many people look to state their input on something that is none of their business and that they are not aected by. From the parents point of view, I understand why such content isnt necessarily something that you want your children learning about. But seriously? It was a small section, which was a joke that many of us got a good laugh out of. If you really think your children dont hear about much worse on a daily basis, then maybe you should consider homeschooling, with all do respect.

Lima Street, Baldwin 266-1041 www.countryfcu.com Its the perfect time to own your DREAM HOMEContact a Member Service Representative today to check out our low rates MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF An updated local housing assistance plan was approved by the Baker County Commission last week to meet a May 23 deadline to secure $350,000 in state funds to build modest houses or repair existing dwellings for low income, elderly and disabled clients. The plan is renewed every three years to provide guidelines for administering the State Housing Initiative Partnership, or SHIP, program funded by documentary stamp taxes paid on real estate transactions. SHIP grants function as deferred loans in which the balance decreases yearly until it reaches zero after 15 or 20 years, depending upon the type of loan. For purchase assistance and renovation of existing dwellings the term is 15 years and for new home construction it is 20 years. The loan amount depreciates 6.66 percent per year on 15-year plans and 5 percent on 20year plans, which require liens on the property for the length of the contract. Applicants who live in their SHIP home for the duration of the loan term owe nothing. Repayment of the loan is required only if the homeowner sells or transfers ownership of the home, ceases to use the home as their primary residence, or fails to maintain the property in accordance with county zoning code standards within the lien period. One part of the plan that created some concern and debate about whether it should be amended is a section dealing with the death of an applicant well within the 20-year lien period on a SHIP home that was built new. The plan states that if the applicant dies prematurely all heirs and successors will be held to the same rules and regulations as the applicant. It further states that the property may be sold, but if so the lien shall be fully the eligibility of the program. In other words, said County Attorney Rich Komando, the loan gets paid back at full amount, not a depreciated value. Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson said he felt a 10-year lien would be more reasonable because families who inherit a SHIP house after their parent dies would not be hit with such a large debt. Most applicants for SHIP houses, he said, are quite elderly and, realistically, likely will die before the 20-year lien ends. If one passed away after only a few years it would leave heirs owing a lot of money. My concern is putting the burden onto other family members, Mr. Anderson said. The contract is with the applicant, not their family. Other commissioners agreed last week and said they might be agreeable to amending the plan to cut the deferred payment loan period from 20 to 10 years and increasing the annual depreciation to 10 percent. However, after having a week to think about it and discuss it with other people, Mr. Anderson said on May 27 that he wasnt so sure that heirs would have to pay 100 percent of the original loan amount. He said he thinks the housing assistance plan could be interpreted to mean that they would simply have to pay the remaining bal ance after deducting the 5 percent annual depreciation factor, which would reduce the debt burden. Mr. Anderson said he intended to discuss the matter with County Manager C.J. Thomp son and the county attorney on May 28. In other business during the May 20 board meeting commissioners: Added six transportation improvement projects totaling nearly $19 million to a wish list that the county hopes will be funded by the Florida Department of Transportation in the next few years. The projects which include engineering, surveying, permitting and construction are: 1. CR 127 North: Resurface 11.3 miles beginning at CR 127 and ending at Moccasin Creek Circle for an estimated cost of $1.8 million. 2. CR 139B: Resurface 1.51 miles beginning at CR 125 and ending at US 90. Estimated cost is $390,000. 3. Turner Cemetery Road: Pave 4.7 miles of unpaved road, beginning at CR 125 and ending at CR 127. Estimated cost: $2,.7 million. 4. Bill Davis Road: Pave two miles of unpaved road beginning at CR 130 and ending at Reid Stafford Road. Estimated cost: $900,000. 5. Midpoint Parkway (Macclenny truck by-pass route): The project consists of a road connecting SR 121, SR 228 and SR 10 (US 90). Approximate length is 4.1 miles at an estimated cost of $12.9 million. 6. SR 228: The project consists of adding two lanes, sidewalks, curb and gutters for .9 mile at an estimated cost of $3.9 million. This is in conjunction with the City of Macclennys proposed Enterprise Corridor designed to attract commercial development between I-10 and Lowder Street.

Dependable submitted the lowest of three bids for installing a 5-ton heat pump system, including auxiliary heat strips. Approved an application submitted by Mary and Thomas Going for a special zoning exception to subdivide a 7-acre parcel into three separate family lots in the Cedar Creek Farms subdivision north of Glen St. Mary. The request was granted after a public hearing at 6 pm. The Goings told commissioners they wanted to give some of their property to their son and daughter, who already lives in a mobile home at the south end of the parcel with her husband and children. The request was denied by the countys jected to it because of impassable roads during heavy rains in Cedar Creek Farms. county road to get to their home, County Planner Ed Preston told commissioners. The Goings showed the commission family photographs, including their grandchildren, and said they all wanted to live together on the same piece of land, which they have owned since 1981. Were here to plead for a special exception, Mrs. Going said. This is for my family. We just want three individual pieces of land. Our daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren will live on one end, our son will live in the middle. department or rescue for assistance and if a hurricane were approaching we plan to stay elsewhere. The board, which previously have supported other requests for family lots, unanimously approved the special exception. MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF The Baker County Land Plan ning Agency has recommended denial of an application to divide a one-acre lot in half to accommodate two rental mobile homes at the northwest corner of Mud Lake Road and CR 125. The final decision will be made by the county commission at a public hearing at 6 pm on June 17. But the proposal will come with a 3-1 vote by LPA members to reject the property owners request. The planning and zoning advisory board members who voted against the proposal agreed that it could set a precedent for increasing the density in a neighborhood dominated by single-family residential lots several acres in size. If we approve this, it would be more dense than any of the properties around it? board member John Adams asked County Planner Ed Preston. That is correct, Mr. Preston replied. After 30 minutes or so debating the pros and cons in a public hearing, the board concluded that the request to double the density on the lot could be detrimental to the rural-residential character of the surrounding neighborhood. We would be setting a precedent for 1/2-acre lots in that area all along Mud Lake Road. We would be opening the door for that, Mr. Adams said. Glen Patten, who was elected to lead the LPA as its next chairman, agreed and recommended the request be denied. Mr. Adams seconded the motion and the third member to join them, Joseph DeFee, said he shared the same concerns. The dissenting vote was cast He said he did not think the proposal would harm the neighborhood because of its location at a busy street corner. You would logically expect to see a higher density at intersections, Mr. Zamarron said. The application to increase the density on the lot and zone it for two mobile homes was recommended for approval by the countys planning department. The development review comand emergency rescue services departments and the sheriffs ofMr. Preston noted that properties north of Mud Lake Road are in the urban growth area designated in the countys longrange comprehensive plan as the area where most residential development is anticipated in the coming years. Nonetheless, the testimony of three other homeowners all of whom live on the south side of Mud Lake Road helped convince the majority that the ap plication to change the land use and zoning on the subject parcel should be denied. One of those neighbors was Loraine Overland, who lives with her husband and two children at 7426 Mud Lake Rd. near the southeast corner of the intersection. She said they bought their 2.5-acre lot because they wanted to live and raise their children in a low density neighborhood with large yards. She said she has nothing against mobile homes but noted that houses appreciate in value and mobile homes do not. Danny Burger, who lives about three houses down at 7316 Mud Lake Rd., also spoke against the proposal because it would increase density. Theres 550 acres across the street (former Blair Nursery property on the north side of Mud Lake Road between SR 121 and CR 125), Mr. Burger said. Are they going to be allowed to put 1/2-acre lots over there? Shelly Weichselbaum, a rehome at 7610 Mud Lake Rd. is surrounded by 5.5 acres, said that as a former law enforcement officer she knows that with more density come more (crime) problems. To grant the request, she said, would not be fair to others who chose the neighborhood because of its rural, quiet nature with large yards. She said the applicants had done a beautiful job cleaning up the site but said it should remain one acre. The applicants, Jacqueline and David Robinson, removed a substandard old house and numerous trees and thick brush from the lot and placed a double-wide mobile home on it earlier this year facing CR 125. The back portion of the lot where she wanted to put a second mobile home is connected by a driveway to Mud Lake Road. Mrs. Robinson told the LPA board that they also planned to erect a privacy fence around the property but the cost to clear the lot was so expensive they needed to add a second rental unit to justify the cost. I dont think anything we want to do is going to impact anybody, she said. We made improvements to the lot. One additional dwelling would not there. She said she and her husband own several rental properties in the area, including some across the street or next door to their home on Mud Lake Road, and said they were not trying to impact housing values. Earlier in the meeting Mr. Preston told the board that he will be meeting with the county manager and county attorney on May 28 to prepare a schedule for the gradual adoption of revised land development regulations, which have been delayed for a year. The adoption process, Mr. Preston said, will begin with the simplest and least controver sial provisions and end with the more complex, controversial issues, such as mining. The LPA board sent a request to the county commission last month requesting prompt atten tion to the pending LDRs. My concern is putting the burden onto other family members. e contract is with the applicant, not their family.Commissioner Jimmy AndersonMulls shortening liens for SHIPOpposes allowing extra unit on acreA convicted felon from Glen St. Mary was sentenced to an 18-month prison term on May 20 after admitting he violated several provisions of his probation sentence for having a gun and felony driving with a suspended license. Circuit Judge Mark Moseley imposed the sentence on Frank Levi Pipkins, 34, during regu lar court session. He had been on probation since July of last year, and court records indicate he was arrested for possession of cocaine and hydromorphine in February. Mr. Pipkins also lied to him, failed to make an appointment tion. He was arrested in April while out on bond for shoplift ing the previous month. In the only other sentenc ing that day, the judge ordered Richard Salazar, 31, of Jack sonville onto a three-year probation for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The defendant was charged with driving his vehicle into the path of his estranged girlfriend in a service station parking lot near Sanderson back in March. The confrontation took place during an argument as they met to exchange a child. Mr. Salazar must also take anger management and parenting classes.

At Macclenny Elementary, two volunteers were singled out Helene Guest and Katina Bryant. Ms. Guest is a frequent volunteer teaching classes about gardening, composting, recycling and organic pest control. Ms. Bryant, meanwhile, assists with office work and grading papers. She also supplied crickets to feed one class pet lizards. I hear they [teachers] fight over her, Mrs. Raulerson said of the latter volunteer.

The county extension director Mike Davis, its 4-H agent Shaina Bennett and its horticulture agent Alicia Lamborn were all recognized for their contributions to the countys schools. Mr. Davis has been a guest reader in the elementary schools and served on the high schools Career and Adult Education Advisory Council. Ms. Bennett was feted for her work with the 4-H embryology project, which teaches children about the life cycle of chickens, from birth to hatching. She also teaches healthy eating habits to kids in school. Ms. Lamborn, who was absent from the meeting because she recently had a baby, has planted, with student assistance, 51 trees at four schools since 2008. Shes also led hy droponic gardening and raised bed gardening demonstrations. Its wonderful what you do for the kids of this community, Mrs. Raulerson said to Mr. Davis and Ms. Bennett. Mr. Davis then thanked all the parents and children whove participated the exten sion services programs. Two monetary donations to the school district were announced at the opening of the roughly hour-and-40-minute gathering. AT&T representative Heather Duncan was on hand to give $2000 of her companys funds to match the districts investment in a hydroponic gardening project at Macclenny Elementary. An anonymous donation to the Baker County Education Foundation for the Positive Behav ioral System, which rewards students for good behavior, was announced as well.

ursday, May 29, 2014 T B C P Page 7Police arrested a Jackson ville woman for drug and paraphernalia possession the evening of May 20 after she was involved in an altercation with an ex-husband at Woodys BBQ on South 6th St. in Macclenny. Deputy Jacob Satterwhite said he requested permission to search the purse of Megan Hoffman, 28, after noticing she had what appeared to be needle marks on her hands. She then reportedly admitted she had been shooting heroin. Inside the purse was a wooden box containing syringes, a spoon, steel wool, two glass pipes and a lighter. container containing two pills for which Ms. Hoffman did not have a prescription. They were Xanax and Hydrochloride. Police were called to the restaurant about 8 pm after the suspect argued with the ex-husband, who refused to call someone to give her a ride home. She dined there earlier accompanied by a friend, who then ejected her from a vehicle and left her stranded. The pill possession charge is a felony, paraphernalia a misdemeanor. In other drug-related arrests, a 17-year-old male student at Baker County High School was arrested for having marijuana in a deodorant container stored in his backpack. Deputy Chris Walker and assistant principal John Staples questioned the boy earlier after a trace amount of pot his 1999 Ford pickup parked near the school tennis courts the morning of May 20. The countys K-9 Blitz alerted to the presence of the drug during a free-air sweep of the parking lot, an exercise conducted occasionally on the Glen St. Mary campus. The student was given a verbal warning then because of the small amount, and Mr. Staples called Deputy Walker back to the school about 11:30 when informed the student was boasting that he got away with having marijuana. It was then that the backpack was searched again. Deputy Clements Leo arrested Richard P. Hodges, 29, him walking in the travel lane of CR 229 near Thomas Sweat Rd. about 11 pm on May 20. During a routine search, the deputy found two small baggies of marijuana in the suspects pants pocket, along with rolling papers. Deputy Leo said he was on patrol when he saw vehicles swerve out of their travel lane to avoid hitting Mr. Hodges. NARCOTICS ANONYMOUSWe are a group of recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. IT WORKS!!Meetings are held at the Baker County Health Department on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:45 p.m.-7:45 p.m. JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comIn a three bedroom, two bath home on a quiet street in north Macclenny a few blocks from downtown sits the coun tys newest and only assisted living facility. During the last year, Stephenie Morales and her husband Jeremy Howell have invested about $100,000 in the business, including renovations to the residential property at 132 W. Stansell Ave. The facility, equipped with a TV room, crafting and dining room, large backyard and kitchen, is the brainchild of Ms. Morales, who formerly worked for the states Department of Elder Affairs as an ombudsmen and advocate for nursing home residents. Though small compared to many assisted living facilities (ALFs) statewide with just five beds, the Clair Winston House may expand in the future if demand proves high enough, the owner said. Mrs. Morales is targeting customers who could benefit from living in an environment where non-medical assistance is available 24 hours a day, including transportation services to shopping, doctors appointments and social activities. She said the Clair Winston House, named after her grandfather, cannot accept residents who require 24-hour nursing care or who cannot walk. The house also cant take Medicaid recipients just yet. Im working on it, said Mrs. Morales. The house itself, circa 1960, has hardwood and tile flooring and a well-landscaped front and rear yard. Theres a small deck off the side of the home as well. The premises are monitored continuously by video surveillance. Its just waiting for residents, said Mrs. Morales, who is actively seeking her first livein clients. So far, she said, the house has drawn interest for its respite, or adult day care, services, which can give other care givers, perhaps the children of aging seniors, a break from around-the-clock supervision of their elders, albeit temporary. Mrs. Morales, a Glen St. Mary resident with her husband and their six children, moved back to Baker County in 2005 to help care for her aging grandfather, who died in 2010 at 91 years old. She said he was a very social person, but was not fond of clinical environments like hospitals and nursing homes. She said he often complained of the loneliness he felt after he was diagnosed with a hormonal illness known as Addisons Disease. I was close to him but I didnt know about ALFs until he became sick, said Mrs. Morales. We all felt getting him into one would have prolonged his life. That combined with her professional background spurred her to open a Macclenny ALF named after her granddad. Mrs. Morales holds a bachelors degree in healthcare administration and an aging studies certification from the University of Central Florida. She also spent 13 years as a respiratory therapist. But to operate an ALF in Florida more training is required. Such facilities are regulated and licensed by the states Agency for Healthcare Admin istration, or ACHA. The agency requires licensees undergo 40 hours of instruction and pass an exam. They must also learn CPR and first aid, and pass another exam on food safety. In addition, Mrs. Morales had to pass a background check and the house had to clear fire and building code inspections. It was really hard actually, she said the red tape involved the endeavor. The Clair Winston Houses license number is 12451. ACHA periodically inspects licensed facilities and the results are available online through a search database at http://ahca. myflorida.com/Executive/ Communications/public_re cords.shtml under the Public Records Search link. ACHAs press secretary Shelisha Coleman said the Clair Winston House is the only currently licensed ALF in Baker County. The countys only other ALF was the Countryside Retirement Home in Sanderson, which closed in 1998, she said.

JON SHUMAKE jonshu@live.comA 17-year-old Macclenny youth was arrested for felony grand theft of a motor vehicle on the morning of May 23 after he was caught driving a golf cart he took from outside Davis Golf Cart and Small Engine Repair valued at about $4,000.

The man returned to the victims residence on May 24 and said the pressure washer didnt work and that he wanted his money back. Mr. Stivers told the man the pressure washer worked before he purchased it and there are no refunds. The man then told the victim, Dont tell me no, you will regret it, and then left.

Deputy Yingling searched the area but couldnt locate the suspect.JON SHUMAKE jonshu@live.comA Glen St. Mary woman was arrested for shoplifting on the afternoon of May 24 after she was caught stealing an iTouch case and a tank top from Walmart that were valued at $26.

A Macclenny live-in girlfriend was arrested early on May 23 for an attack on her boyfriend during an argument over her going out for more alcohol, then bringing it back to their north city apartment and being drunk in front of their 1-year-old son. John McDowell, 28, was interviewed by Deputy Justin Yingling at the Fraser Hospital emergency room after being kicked several times in the abdomen by Amber Tillis, 27, when the argument turned violent.

The sheriffs department is looking for a Glen St. Mary man who was picked out of a photo lineup as the person who ran from a Cuyler residence late on May 23, who allegedly pointed a pistol at the property owner when he gave chase. Wesley Jordan, 23, told Deputy Daryl Mobley the next day that Phillip Bennett III, 26, is the the gun and told him to step back when he confronted the suspect near Bluff Creek Rd. about midnight. Mr. Jordan said his brother Dalton Manning, 19, came into the residence off CR 127 about 11:45 after hearing barking dogs and going outfoot. Mr. Jordan then took off after him. The countys K-9 Blitz was called in and tracked a scent believed to be Mr. Bennetts for some distance from the scene before it abruptly ended where police think he got into a vehicle. Mr. Manning said the suspect confronted him several days earlier at nearby Altmans Store, attempting to talk him into giving him two pit bulldogs. He is being sought for aggravated assault with by a convicted felon. Mr. Bennett has felony convictions for drug offenses and similar cases pending in circuit court. He is also a possible suspect in the theft of a $600 revolver from Gerald Andrews on Doyle Williams Rd. sometime between late March and last week.

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe state hospital and the school district received some of the highest marks in a recent survey of breastfeeding policies among the countys largest employers by the Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition. Breastfeeding initiation and duration is an important contributor to reducing infant mortality. Having a proper workplace breastfeeding policy helps improve breastfeeding duration for working moms, said Jennifer Gornto, executive director of the coalition, which includes Baker County. The survey was conducted on behalf of the Baker County Infant Mortality Task Force, which aims to prevent the death of babies before their first birthday, and began in January. The task force hoped to discover what practices were already in place here related to new mothers breastfeeding in the workplace or pumping breast milk for feeding later. Health experts say that breastfeeding is most important in the months immediately following birth, but the health benefits for both mothers and babies can continue to flow long after the babies turn one. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding exclusively for six months and continuation of breastfeeding for one year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant, said Sara Reiger, the coalitions special projects liaison. She supplies staff support to the Infant Mortality Task Force and contacted local employers to inquire about their breastfeeding policies. The task force was formed to reduce infant mortality in Baker County, she explained. Breastfeed babies are less likely to die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in addition to being sick less often. We are seeking opportunities to educate the community on the importance of breastfeeding and the benefits of workplace policies surrounding breastfeeding. The task force and the health department are planning a presentation to Baker County Chamber of Commerce mem bers in the near future to express the importance of having sound breastfeeding policies, and having them in writing. So what makes for a good breastfeeding policy? Ms. Reiger says its providing a private, clean and comfortable area for new mothers to express milk, and sufficient break time to do it. Northeast Florida State Hospital and the Baker Coun ty School District have written policies that include these elements, she said. The state hospital, with prior approval, also allows women to leave the facility to go to a child care location to breastfeed, or for the babies to be brought to the hospital for the same pur pose, said Ms. Reiger. The school district policy provides for a private area free from intrusions and reasonable unpaid breaks for up to one year for the purposes of breastfeeding. Winn-Dixie also sets aside a dedicated area for breastfeeding or pumping during work breaks. Another large retailer, Walmart, directs mothers to dressing rooms for the activity on their lunch breaks. Ed Fraser Hospital doesnt have a formal policy, but employees are given a private space and breaks for breastfeeding purposes upon request. Under the Affordable Care Act of 2010, employers are required to have a place, other than a bathroom, for new mothers to breastfeed or pump and reasonable break time for doing so. Employers with fewer than 50 employees can seek an exemption to this provision of the law if complying with it cre ates a undue hardship. Florida, meanwhile, has made it legal for moms to breastfeed in public, and exempts the act from public inde cency laws. Neither state laws nor fed eral laws require employers to compensate mothers while they are breastfeeding or pumping. If an organization does not have a breastfeeding policy, that raises a red flag, Ms. Reiger said. To appropriately support a breastfeeding mother, workplaces need to provide a written policy. Having women use a restroom or not providing her with a private place to express milk or not allowing her to express milk would be characteristics of a bad policy. Not having a workplace policy could also potentially deter women from initiating breast feeding or continuing breast feeding and that would limit the important benefits breastfeeding provides. According to data collected by the Florida Department of Health, the breastfeeding rate in Baker County in 2012, the latest year for which figures are available, was 71.8 percent. Statewide the rate was 81 percent. Ms. Reiger said those figures are relatively high compared to the rate among clients of the Baker County WIC (Women, Infant and Children) program. She said the WIC office in Macclenny reports just 13.6 percent of clients breastfeed at three months after birth and 17.8 percent after the sixmonth mark. The increase is due to some mothers not initially coming into WIC for the early postpartum appointments, noted Ms. Reiger.Breastfeeding resourcesThere are three ways new moms can access support and information regarding breast feeding in Baker County: WIC, located at 85 W. Railroad Ave., serves low to moderate income women who are pregnant and up through the postpartum period, as well as children through age 5. WIC promotes breastfeeding and has trained professionals ready to assist mothers in making decisions about their feeding choices and give instruction on the basics of breastfeeding. WIC has mother-to-mother breastfeeding support groups and supplies breast pumps in certain circumstances. WIC can be reached at 2593233. Baker Countys Healthy Start program offers general health education for mothers, which includes the benefits of breastfeeding. The programs staff are trained by WIC lactation experts. They can be reached at 259-6291, ext. 2255, 2256 and 2257. Hospitals have lactation support staff as well.

Page14MAY 29, 2014 JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe 2014 Wildcats didnt were hoping for as sloppy play led to a 47-0 blowout loss at First Coast on May 23 in the Spring Football Classic. and defense struggled throughCoasts starting lineup. Neither side of the ball was able to execute the way they wanted to, which head coach Tom MacPherson took the blame for. I didnt expect us to look this bad, Coach MacPherson said. First Coast is a very very talented football team, but we made mistakes ourselves and obviously we werent prepared as a coaching staff. Anytime the kids play that bad, you didnt have them prepared right so thats on us. The Cats offense could never get rolling and commithalf, including a pair of lost from First Coast quarterback DeAndre Johnson and the second was returned for a score. The poor execution stemmed from the offenses lack of experience as the unit has only two returning starters from last year. The team had to play young players against a talented defense with a handful of FBS-caliber athletes, including South Carolina commit Sherrod Pittman. We have all young kids at o-line who have never played before, and you come over and play 8-10 division 1 players with ninth and 10th graders that have never played o-line, thats kind of the result your going to get, Coach MacPherson said. We werent ready up front for the speed. We werent ready for the physicality of it. The only good thing is this will make them better. The offensive woes meant the defense was forced back early in the game. The defense had a tough time slowing down First Coasts high-powered offense and allowed touchdown half possessions. Even when the defense appeared to have their opposition stopped, the Bucs still found a Wildcats had First Coast facing a fourth-and-20 and a fourthand-35, and each time they gave up a long touchdown pass by Johnson. Those mistakes gave the Bucs the chance to blow the game open, coach MacPherson said. Stuff like that just cannot happen, he said. If you take the two fourth down plays and the two turnovers away, maybe its 14 to nothing at half instead of forty-something to nothing. Despite the overall poor showing, there were still a few bright spots for the Cats. CeCe Jefferson showed once again why he is one of the most sought-after players in the 2015 recruiting class. The defensive star had a sack and three tackles for loss. Coach MacPherson also pointed to Blayne Merchant, who played both ways, as someone who stood out for him. The coach said ninth-grade offenand Travion Clayton played well enough to give the team hope for the future. Were going to get good up front, he said. Were going to get better. These kids have just never played. The Wildcats returned to held workouts the following Wednesday and Thursday. The team will get back on the practo correct the mistakes they made in the spring. The head coach said he hopes the shutout loss will act as a wake up call for the team to work hard in the summer. Hopefully this is the shot in the face we need and the kick in the face we need to get motivated a little bit, coach MacPherson said. I think some of our guys need to be a little bit hungrier and need to realize we have a lot of work to do. Hopefully this is what will get it done.

Bone Senior Pastor JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comBrandon Callen of Lake City won the state junior championship in team roping for the second straight year when he and partner Aaron Barber were crowned champions on May 18 after the competition took place in Davie the previous three days. It feels great, Callen, a 18-year-old Macclenny native, said. Being able to go back and win it again is a big accomplishment. We were going against the best competitors in the state of Florida. The top 15 teams qualified for the state after receiving points throughout the season. Callen and Barber sat atop the team roping rankings entering the rodeo, which gave them the advantage of going last. The duo had a big points lead and thought they would only have to catch the steer to win, but the second-place team pulled within eight points of the lead. The closer competition motivated Callen and Barber to post a time of 8.88 seconds in the third and final go-round, which was about a second-anda-half faster than the secondplace team. Im kind of glad it came down to how it did, said the high school senior. It made us step our game up. The time was enough for Callen to capture his second consecutive state champion ship with as many partners. He called his new partner a brother and the two would practice as much as they could on weekends to give themselves the chance to be as successful as possible. With the state meet behind him, Callen turns his attention to Julys national rodeo in Rock Spring, Wyo. He and former partner Colton Matthews fin ished 14th out of 81 team roping duos last year. This year, he expects to finish at the top of the national rodeo. Everybody that goes out there is competing against the best of the best, Callen said. We just hope to catch all our cattle and make it back sitting good to have a chance to win the national title. Florida has one of the most competitive teams going out. Without a doubt we have a very good chance.

Doctors gave Mr. Callahan a .01 percent chance to walk after he was left paralyzed from tournament in July 2010. He didnt allow the long odds to affect his determination to get back on his feet. He was walking again just four weeks after the diagnosis. Within a year, he was back in the gym working out. Although he still suffers from paralysis and tingling throughout his body, he said his recovery was incredible. Honestly, me and my wife never believed those odds at all, Mr. Callahan said. We just put our faith in God and prayer and believing that I would be able to come back. It was obviously scary, but after a few weeks when I started being able to move a little bit, I put the hard work into getting back to where I am right now. After two years of therapy and working out, Mr. Callahan decided to play in another quarterback. His team won the tournament and his story blew up across the country and was featured on the New England Patriots website. He decided to use that notoriety to spread his message of hope to children and created his foundation in June 2013. I got emails from people I didnt know telling me how Im their hero and how Ive inspired them to do this and that, Mr. Callahan said about reaching out to others. I would get speaking engagements. It got me to thinking, I need to do something where I can tell as many kids as I can about this great story of overcoming the odds. The best way I can think to do that is to offer free sports camps to kids. The foundation has held more than 20 soccer camps across Northeast Florida dur ing the last year. The camp teaches the fundamentals of the sport with experienced coaches and volunteers helping the attendees with the different aspects of the game. While the children may leave better athletes, Mr. Callahans goal is to inspire the participants to overcome any odds they may face in the future. Every time I leave here I always get a better feeling than I did when I came, he said. Literally, I get something good out of it every single time. If I reach and inspire one kid or adult through my story, then thats all I want. Purchase this photo at www.bakercountypress.com Photo by Jon ShumakeCampers Jordan Calvert (left) and Chelsea Harper.

Sheri Joey Dobson (pictured bottom left calling out rae winners) compared this years need for 10 tents to feed some 400 seniors, to past years in which four tents were sucient. He estimated public ocials, including Property Appraiser Tim Sweat and Tax Collector Gene Harvey and others, caught upwards of 1400 sh throughout the year to freeze and fry up for the lunch time fete to the communitys eldest residents. The Council on Aging supplied the paper products while the Florida Department of Corrections, with inmate labor, did the cooking. A trio of singers (pictured at left l-r), Daphne Weeks, Brad Weeks and David Andrews sang gospel songs for the crowd while they ate. Everybody chips in, said the sheri. Between the seniors, guests and public employees present for the gathering, Sheri Dobson approximated more than 650 people were fed during the roughly hour-long luncheon. The sh fry has been a tradition in Baker County for more than three decades. Pictured at top left are (l-r) Ray Edwards, Cari Bertolas, Amos Gainey and Fred Raulerson (front).

BAG $199MANGOES JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe BCMS Bobcats held their first of two spring scrim mages on May 23 as the team prepares itself for a second straight run at a conference title. The scrimmage started off with the first-team defense squaring off against the second-team offense before they swapped to have the first-team offense match up with the second-team defense with each offense receiving about 40 snaps. The first-team defense held their offensive opposition to minimal yardage, while the first-team offense moved the ball with relative ease. Overall, coach Rock Rhoden said it was a fairly typical first spring scrimmage. Its kind of what I expected, he said. We looked de cent, but its nowhere near where we need to be. I was hoping to be a little farther along, but its okay. The first-team defense dominated the offense during its time on the field. The offense had five fumbles and the defense blew up several running plays in the backfield. Defensive back Ozion Moore made a nice tipped interception off quarterback John Green for the lone pick of the day. Moore also made some great plays with the first-team offense in the second half of the scrimmage as a running back. He ran for a several big gains, including a touchdown when he bounced the run off the edge. Green remained at quar terback for the majority of the snaps for the first-team offense. He split a few snaps with Payton Combs, who coach Rhoden plans to use as the B-Cats passing quarterback. The offense didnt move the ball as easily with Combs at quarterback as he struggled to connect with his receivers, but he hasnt received a lot of reps to gel with the skill position players yet, the head coach said. Erit Myers, Cameron Scott and DeAngelo Farmer also stood out for the first-team offense. Although they had a tough time slowing down the starting offense, the second-team defense made a few plays to get the coaches attention. Defensive lineman Jacari Anderson forced his way into the backfield to strip the ball from the quarterback and drop him for a sack. The Bobcats will take the field for their final spring scrimmage on May 30 at 3:30 at the middle schools practice field.
