But not in the case of Macclennys under ground sanitary sewer pipes. Nearly 28 miles of subterranean pipes that have been transporting wastewater to the citys treatment plant day and night for half a century is very much on the minds of city officials these days. The system is old, fragile and in need of a complete overhaul at an estimated cost of about $12.7 million, City Manager Phil Rhoden told the city commission at a meeting the evening of June 10. But with state grant money and completed gradually over a period of time, he said, the project is feasible and should move forward. The council agreed. Were going to eat this elephant one bite at a time, Mr. Rhoden said, noting the meta phorical meal of clay, asbestos and PVC likely will take several years to complete. The city manager told the council he plans to seek as much grant money as possible to help could end up costing the city as much as one-third of the total cost. The city already has received a $1 million appropriation from the Florida Legislature this year, which does not have to be paid back, and the commission authorized the city manager to submit an application for a $4.2 million state grant that could require some local matching funds. Commissioners agreed that the proposed improvements should not be put off any longer, citing numerous pipe breaks and leaks that have required expensive emergency repairs. We really have no choice but to start doing this, Mayor Gary Dopson said. Hardly a month goes by that we dont have another rupture. In addition to the state appropriation and the proposed state grant, the city hopes to receive $700,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant funds and assistance from the St. Johns River Water Manage project, Mr. Rhoden said. The $12.7 million cost estimate for the overhaul was prepared by Mittauer & Associates, Inc. last month at a cost of sev eral thousand dollars. Thats one bill the city hopes it has to pay. If were not funded it doesnt cost us a dime, the city manager told the council. The citys storm water system, the pipes that transport rainwater to the treatment plant, is also in need of major improvements but well deal with that later, Mr. Rhoden said. In other business last week the city board: Approved the city man agers request to proceed with plans to drill a second well at the Walmart Distribution Center, which has come close to be ing without water a couple of times due to water pressure failures. The project will cost about $460,000.

Defendant Rheanna Ma rie Hodges, 17, was charged by the state attorneys office as an adult with two counts of ag gravated battery with a deadly weapon and transferred from a juvenile mental health treatment facility in Gainesville to the county jail here prior to her bond hearing the morning of June 17. During the hearing, Judge Moseley said the defendants counsel, public defender Julie Johnson, didnt present enough information about her clients cur rent mental health status for him to release her on her own recognizance, as requested in Ms. John sons motion. He said such information might convince him to release her to a mental health facility, rather than keeping her in jail under a $300,000 bond. According to witnesses and surveillance video of the incident, Ms. Hodges was in the BCHS cafe teria with friends, complimenting the victims and other students appearances, when she asked the victim, also 17, to stand up while she stood behind her. The victim stood and thats when Ms. Hodges put a knife to her classmates throat and began yelling. Soon another friend of the victim grabbed Ms. Hodges hand holding the knife and pulled it away from the victims neck, and the two fell to the ground fighting. The friend, Alyssa McLar en, 14, of Macclenny said she was able to take the knife and pass it to another student while being struck by Ms. Hodges in the face multiple times. Other students helped separate the teens, by which time school employee Cynthia Kirkland approached and took the suspect to principal Tom Hills office. The victim, meanwhile, fled to another part of the cafeteria. Police recovered four knives from the suspect that morning: two 6-inch steak knives, an 8-inch fillet knife and a 12-inch bread knife. Rheanna Hodges stated she has thought of killing people a lot [and] school is a place where she has been bullied a lot.BCSO Investigator Tracie BentonSee page 2 PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Rheanna Hodges is led into court Tuesday by deputies for her bond hearing. PHOTO BY DONN A JE A N Rep. Elizabeth Porter with the citys plant operator Dennis FinleyBCHS knife attacker charged as adultMIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Opening a business in Macclenny is about to get more ex pensive. Last week the Macclenny City Commission gave preliminary approval to an ordinance increasing occupational license taxes for all types of businesses, including retail and wholesale operations, contractors, doctors, service occupations and numerous others. The tax for most businesses would increase $25 a year from the present tax, which varies according to the number of employees. For example, the tax paid by the owner of a business employing up to five workers would go from $50 to $75 and those with 25 or more employ ees would begin paying $175 instead of the $150 they had been paying. al license tax has not been increased in 24 years. It currently generates $26,000 to $28,000 a year in revenue. The highest occupational taxes in the city are levied on those licensed as hypnotists, palm ists, seers, astrologers and head shops. Those taxes would in crease from $1,125 to $1,150. are set high intentionally to discourage people from setting up shop in Macclenny who would the ordinance: Every person who is en gaged in the practice of fore seeing or foretelling the future, in fortunetelling by any means, including but not limited to the reading of the lines on the palm of a persons hand, the stars, tarot cards or a Ouija board, in the practice of inducing a psychically induced sleep-like condition in which the submit responds to the suggestions of the hypnotist, or in selling drug paraphernalia and the like ... Darryl Register, director of the Baker County Chamber of Commerce, told the board that he had no objections to the proposed tax increase but he felt obligated to point something out to the board.

In addition to ensuring the distribution center continues to have a reliable source of water, he said, a second well would serve the dual role of providing water for future development when the eastern bypass route is eventually built through hundreds of woodland acres from U.S. 90 to CR 228. Council members agreed that the need for an additional well in the area has become critical. It sounds like a must have to me, Councilman Mark Bryant said. Mayor Dopson concurred, saying another well would give us the backup capacity we need.

Price tag for replacing citys sewer lines $12.7MFellow students described Ms. Hodges as unstable, saying she has cut herself, run away from home and attempted sui cide in the past. The night before the alleged attack, police say Ms. Hodges planned out her actions and wrote a suicide note. Ms. Hodges, when interviewed by sheriffs office investigator Tracie Benton, said her intention was to hold the victim hostage to summon the campus deputy and then use the officers gun to kill herself, the investigators report shows. The suspect also spoke of tar geting another specific student whom she envied and going on a stabbing rampage to harm random students until police shot her. In addition, she admitted to having previous thoughts of murder and suicide, including decapitating female students in the schools bathroom, states Investigator Bentons report. Rheanna Hodges stated she has thought of killing people a lot [and] school is a place where she had been bullied a lot, wrote the officer. After the incident, a restraining order was issued to keep the suspect away from the victim. They reside about two-tenths of a mile from one another and were friends since the 9th grade, the victims father said during the 9 am bond hearing Tuesday. Thats when prosecutor Lorelie Papel argued to Judge Moseley that even with GPS monitoring of Ms. Hodges whereabouts, the close proximity between the victim and defendant in the Glenwood Subdivision would not give authorities enough time to respond should Ms. Hodges violate the protection order. Ms. Papel said the suspect was a danger to herself and others and should not be released from jail. Her actions were deliberate, said the prosecutor, adding that she was not hesitant to involve other students in her suicide plan. The judge took issue with the argument, however, asking why no Baker Act petition was filed if authorities believed Ms. Hodges was, in fact, a danger to herself and others. Public defender Ms. Johnson responded by saying her client was taken for a 72-hour mental health evaluation prior to the alleged attack at BCHS and then again after incident occurred, but doctors didnt believe a long-term commitment was warranted. Thats my understanding of what happened, she told the judge. In denying the motion for release by the defense, Judge Moseley said he was disappointed by the lack of information presented regarding Ms. Hodges mental health status or previous treatment, despite being in the system for more than a month. Im greatly concerned no options are being presented, he said, adding, I dont have enough information to release her. He also said he questioned why the state attorneys office did not file a Baker Act petition for the defendant to be placed in long-term treatment rather than jail. I dont understand that. Why not follow through with the appropriate action, especially with a juvenile? he asked. There was no answer from authorities, however.

Page3JUNE 19, 2014 Hometown heroes, particularly in Americas smaller communities, are often catapulted to that position on the basis of athletic prowess. In the South, more likely its prowsports religion of the region. Tim Tebows revered status in the Jacksonville area (and in the state of Florida for that matter) is an obvious latter-day example. He retains superstar status even though hes not playing professional football. To many it doesnt matter; hes still their hero. Larry Dupree, Baker Countys version of Mr. Tebow, died this week at age 70. The former All-American running back for the Gators in the early years of the 60s decade, in many parts of the state. An example: newspaper publishers from that era typically had one question for me when encountered at Florida Press Association conventions in past years: Is old Larry Dupree still around; hows he doing? They may not have known exactly where Baker County was on the Florida landscape, but they knew who Larry Dupree was. And there you have it. I mentioned that phe nomenon to Larry years ago and he just grinned, responding with something akin to, Well Ill be. Really? A bad knee kept him out of the pros after signing with the then St. Louis Cardinals (now Arizona Cardinals), and he returned to his home base where he spent the rest of his life. As will happen, Larrys star faded with the years (perhaps most members of the current Wildcat football squad have never heard of him), but to Baker County residents around from the 1960s on, he was still a hometown celebrity. Thing is, he never acted like any of it went to his head. If anything, he seemed to play the whole thing down, at least in conversations over the years with yours truly. He once mentioned that his All American and Florida Hall of Fame status brought with it a standing invitation for VIP recep tions before Gator games; likewise at the annual Florida-Georgia galas, because he was an inductee in that Hall of Fame as well. He was pretty much a no-show. Not that he didnt appreciate the largess; he didnt feel he had to participate because it was too close to living in the past or words to that effect. Larry Dupree was more comfortable being off the stage. culty grasping that, but for many who only realize it later in life, being a hometown hero isnt easy. One ages and one wants to be known for what one is present time, and thats the way it should be. No one will deny, though, that Larry Dupree put Baker County on the map, and on the way to doing that he achieved on dream about. The accolades showered upon him during those glory years would have been reason to grow a big head and keep crowing long after the curtain came down over the gridiron. It didnt seem to work that way with Larry. Encounter him in the store, or on the street or sitting on his front porch in Glen, he was just Larry exactly the way he would want to be remembered. Im having trouble coming up with material for a column, I said to my wife Kelley as I sat in the living room staring at my laptop, which was staring back at me without being a bit of help. Write a nostalgic column about Fathers Day, she sug gested. Nah. Its passed. Besides, I dont feel like being maudlin. That wouldnt be maudlin, it would be sweet. I think Ill write about Cats I Have Known and the stuff thats happened to them, like Russell 2 crawling into the back of the dryer and me not knowing it until I tried to dry a load of clothes and the drier kept going meow! Youve written about that. People already know about all the Russells and all the bad things that have happened to them. Really. Maybe Ill write about when you and Amy Blankenship were talking and how she couldnt believe I hadnt heard a word of your conversation. Selective hearing. No its not. I just think its rude to eavesdrop so I dont listen in. Youve written about that already. Have I? Yes. Youre losing your memory. No, Im not. Who put the hand mixer in the refrigerator? Yes, I agreed. That was me. I must have had some serious refrigerator-related event for that to have happened. Like ice cream. But you dont know what. No. I must have been thinking too hard about something. What was it Betty Sands told you years ago about thinking? You mean when the three of us were driving home and I missed the Macclenny exit because I was thinking about something? Yes. What did she tell you? Dont think, drive! Exactly, Kelley said smugly. Dont think, write. Its what you do every week, she said, laughing manically. That may be true, but it doesnt help me come up with a column, I reminded her. Maybe I should write about our conversation last night. No! Absolutely not! You know how I feel about certain subjects. I have been writing columns almost every week for 28 years and Kelley has been pretty good about it. Ive written about the kids growing up and her and all the crazy stuff that happens in our family. I seriously doubt that our family is any more interesting than anyone elses I just have an odd way of looking at things. However, some things are She doesnt mind too much if I take an actual conwhat Im writing about. After all, Im usually the one who comes off looking the worst in those situations, while she comes off as level headed and normal. But some things I cant write about. Bodily functions, for example. Underwear. The bedroom. What does or doesnt happen in there. The bathroom. See bed room. Anything embarrassing about the children now that they are grown. Its pretty tempting from time to time, but now they know how to read. ing light. That got added after an early column where I mentioned a family trip to the Dillard House in Georgia where I wrote, and I quote, They did more damage than Sherman on his march to the sea. That didnt endear me to anyone. Kelley in a Jacuzzi in Savannah. I believe I might have actually written about that unfortunate bubble bath affair. She was unaware that you cant put bubble bath in a Jacuzzi or you wind up with spent weeks in the doghouse after that column. Religion and local politics. goof balls from both parties who run the country are fair game. Oh, well. She was no help. Im still stuck without a column for this week. Im giving up and going to bed. Maybe something will come to me in the morning.LETTER TO THE EDITOR IMPRESS I ONSJim McGauley Teen knife attacker charged as an adultReaders reacted to a brief story posted following Rheanna Hodges bond hearing Tuesday morning: Taylor Rhoden: She is my cousin and I graduated in 2013. I was one of her only friends. I would go over to her house to talk to her and all she could do is talk about how she got bullied ... Why are parents not teaching there kids about bullying and what bullying does. Parents are to worried about going out drinking instead of being a par ent and raising there kids! I am blessed to be raised by grandparents who taught me right from wrong and they raised me old fashion! Parents are not sup pose to be your best friend but to teach you how to be a grown up. Kim Moser: I am all against bullying. But if you read what it actually says, she held a knife to her friends throat. Did her friend bully her? Probably not. Its just an excuse to blame someone else for her problems. Its time to stop placing blame on some one else and step up and be held ac countable for your/her actions. Enough is enough. People have been bullied in school for de cades and they didnt do these kind of things. Again, I say take responsibility for your actions! Nicholas Ginnetto: Its not where have the parents been, its where was every one when she was being bullied and picked on. Tabatha Matthews: I am sor ry but what she did was wrong. My daughter was in that cafete ria minding her own business and saw the whole thing unfold. She was just feet away from her. We do not know the family and are praying for her to get some help, but her intentions were to harm the girl and others. Thank God a teacher was near by and ended this event. Sheina Deyoung: She should be tried as an adult. She was going to take innocent lives. It was premeditated.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOKTO JOIN THE DISCUSSIONDear Editor: There are unscrupulous people in Baker County who do not think twice about steal ing someones precious memories and priceless heirlooms after their loved ones pass away. My mother spent over a de cade in a local nursing facility where she received the best of care from a loving staff. She spent many nights at hospitals over the years, and nothing was ever tampered with in her room. This gave me a very trusting feeling about her caregivers. However, upon her passing at St. Vincents in Jack sonville, her little pink, heartshaped trinket box was taken from a drawer. It held many little precious memories that I will probably never see again. People should be warned not to leave anything of value in a nursing home, and if your loved one dies, go immediately to take those memories home with you. These worldly things your mom or dad held dear will become important to your healing, and they are worth more than the few dollars a thief gets at a pawn shop.

The sole other pre-qualify ing activity since the petition period ended involved former sheriffs department investigative chief Chuck Brannan of Macclenny, who picked up a booklet on candidate rules at mid-week had yet to make any further effort to qualify.Bennett qualies to run for board seatMIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Theres good news and bad news surrounding the medical insurance plan adopted by the Baker County School Board this week for school district employees and their families in 2014-15. The good news is insurance premiums rose a modest 6.3 percent this year, compared with a much higher rate hike last year. The bad news is they will have to pay much more of the costs for their health care out of their own pockets. One board member was so displeased with the United Health Care plan recommended by the districts insurance committee that he almost voted against it. Im tempted to say no, but what alternatime board member and former chairman who objected vehemently to the plan at the June 16 meeting. Out-of-pocket expenses have doubled, he said of copays and deductibles. I didnt see anything lowered. Its awful. Tim and Wendy Owens, the school districts insurance consultants who worked closely with the insurance committee to draft the new plan, said employees will have to pay $6,350 of their own medical expenses annu ally, or $12,700 for family coverage, under the new plan. It was either accept higher maximum outof-pocket expenses each year, Mr. Owens miums. The increase would have been 30 percent if we had stayed with the same out-of-pocket expense, Mr. Owens said. Mrs. Owens noted that covered employees dont have to pay for any visits to their doc tors, nor for any prescription medicines, after the annual cap is met. the plan, not only because of the ever-increas ing costs but also because United Health Care is not an accepted insurance plan at Fraser Hospital in Macclenny. I dont know if we can keep doing it, he said. We keep paying these exorbitant pre miums and we still cant use our local hospital that we support with tax dollars. With Av Med (a former school district health insurer) we could use it. Mrs. Owens commented that school district employees and their family members, if covered, can go to the emergency room at Fraser with illnesses or injuries. However, they must be transferred to another hospital on an in-patient basis. Mr. Owens said he has tried, unsuccessfully, to help United Health Care and Fraser Hospital reach an agreement but the two sides have failed to see eye-to-eye on payment rates the hospital is willing to accept for various medical services. We have tried, with great effort, to have United Health Care and Fraser come to terms, he said. Patricia Weeks, who currently chairs the school board, credited the insurance committee with working diligently with consultants to produce a mutually-acceptable health insurance package. The insurance committee worked as hard as they could and got the best deal they more upset with the hospital. So, at least for the next year, the district, its employees and their families will have to live with the new insurance plan. They are re on October 1. Aspects of the insurance package include co-payments of $35 for primary care physician visits and $70 to see a specialist. Co-payments for prescription drugs will range from $15 to $80 depending upon the type of drug and whether it is a brand name medication or generic. The monthly premiums for employees will be $722.27 for individuals, $1,301.32 for an employee and a spouse, $1,185.05 for an employee and children, and $1,717.68 for family coverage. The board is tentatively committed to contributing an additional premium amount in each category ranging from $464.40 monthly for individuals to $712.20 for families. The board also renewed $10,000 life insurance policies for each employee, which will reduce to $5,000 at age 70, and vision care plans that will cost $10 per exam, $10 for materials and no charge for lenses. The rates will remain unchanged. In other business this week, the board: Approved a new dual-enrollment agree ment between Baker County High School and Florida Gateway College in Lake City that will save the district money in the coming year. Recent legislative changes resulting from Ann Watts, director of career and adult education, in that when dual enrollment course instruction is provided on the high school campus ... the school district is not responsible for (tuition) payment ... BCHS principal Tom Hill said about 400 students took college courses at FGC this past year, including roughly 25 percent who completed the course work at the high school. The others commuted to the college or took course work online. The program is available to students in grades 10-12 who want to earn high school credit toward a diploma and college credit toward an associate or bachelor degree. Students may be part-time or full-time. Approved a $350,000 contract with R.B. Gay Construction Co., Inc., to replace the roofs on the media center at Keller Interme diate School and on the gymnasium and music building at Baker County Middle School. The bid was slightly higher than the districts estimate of $333,780. Adopted the new school calendar for 2014-15, which for teachers will begin on August 17, following by the return of students on August 24. The school year is projected to end on June 7, 2015.Hike in out-of-pocket insurance costJOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker County Sheriffs Office made an unintentional cameo appearance in a rap video recently, prompting it to disavow any involvement with video or the rap group featured in it. Deputy Johnny Hodges and his patrol car appear in three short shots of Pain Made Family rapper Wil5ons video for the song My Word. The video was shot at the BP gas station on U.S. 90 in Macclenny. It contains graphic language, alcohol consumption and references to violent behavior, all of which are very typical in contemporary rap and hip hop music. But thats also likely why the sheriffs office announced on Facebook June 9 that it had no part in the video. Major Gerald Gonzalez, the departments operations chief, said BCSO received a few calls inquiring about the video, including questions concerning us willingly participating and promoting the group and or video. Said BCSO in the Facebook post: On Saturday, May 31st, a rap group called PMF filmed a video at the BP Gas Station located at 257 W. Macclenny Ave. We received several calls about the Baker County Sheriffs Office vehicle and deputies being in the video. The Sheriffs Office was responding to a call at the BP Gas Station and was inadvertently filmed by the film crew with PMF. In no way is the Sheriffs Office associated with the making of this video. Deputy Hodges responded to the scene where the video was being made by 7th Sense Films following complaints about a large crowd and noise, Maj. Gonzalez said. The Facebook post got more than 20 comments through two days, more than any other post in the BCSO pages recent history. Many of the comments were in support of Pain Made Family, or PMF. The video featuring Wil5on (pronounced Wilson) got a bump in hits too. Since the sheriffs offices post on June 9, its garnered more than 6000 additional views. Wil5on, an alias for Olustee resident LaRon Wilson, 22, responded to the attention in a video posted online late last week in which he says Pain Made Family is not a gang. He said it represents his family ties, specifically the loss of two brothers, Jarvis Simmons to cancer in 2010 and Gary Simmons last year in a vehicle accident he described as brutal. Pain Made Family is not no gang. I got a daddy and mama that go to church faithfully ... This is not no gang. I represent my people. This is a family who come from nothing ..., he said. Im not no saint. I dont go to church faithfully, but my people do, so dont try to make me out to be no gangster. Im not no gangster, Im a hustler. Im going to hustle by any means, he said.

In a report to the Macclenny Commission last week on the parks progress, improvements and plans for the future, Ms. Hodges said thousands of people, young and old, had visited the park off Lowder St. in the past year unions, birthday parties, weddings, a senior health and wellness expo and other events. We had a couple of hundred people come to the park to take prom photos and we had 900 fourth through sixth graders come out the city board the evening of June 10. In addition to feeding the youngsters pizza and burgers, she said, they were given a tour of the museums and a history lesson on Baker Countys past, which began with pioneering families that settled here in the 1830s. I had a good response from teachers, Ms. Hodges said. Two weeks later they said they couldnt believe how much (local history) their students retained. That was especially pleasing to Mayor Gary Dopson, who said the main intent behind the parks creation was to showcase the history, traditions and pioneering families that settled Baker County and the City of Macclenny, which once was a tiny community known as Darbyville. While he was glad to hear about all the various events and activities that have been scheduled at the park, the mayor said, I do not want to get away from the heritage part of it. Ms. Hodges said history is taught whenever people visit the park, particularly when they go inside one of the many museums, which contain thousands of donated items, including old furniture, kitchenware, manual typewriters, rotary dial telephones and other items from the past. I remember when a group of second graders walked in and saw an old dial phone for Hodges told the council, eliciting laughter from the council and audience members. One new event she said she hopes to bring to the park, possibly this year, is a reenactment of the birth of Jesus called Bethlehem Live, with real animals and local people in the cast. Not only have many local families visited the park, Ms. Hodges said, but numerous visitors have come from surrounding communities, including Jacksonville, Clay County, Gainesville and Lake City. duced record income of over $4,000 in rental charges for reunions, receptions and similar groups, and $20,000 in admission fees for special events, according to Melissa Thompson, the city managers executive assistant who also helps prepare the annual budget. After deducting expenses, Heritage Park has netted about $13,000 since October 1, Mrs. Thompson said. The current budget for the park is $61,433, which includes $8,500 for electricity. That expense is expected to increase to about $10,000 in 2014-15, which begins October 1, because new lights were installed in a new childrens playground area in the rear of the park. The biggest chunk of the annual electric bill is generated during the Christmas holiday season, which begins just after Thanksgiving and extends through early January, when the park is set aglow with thousands of lights. Heritage Park contains 20 separate buildings called museums, including a commu nity school, barbershop, jail, Blue Haven Restaurant, blacksmith shop, Bennetts Syrup House, train depot, Gilberts Trading Post, Moonshine Museum and Garage, NEFCOM Telephone Co., a smokehouse, village chapel and Pauls Rexall Drugstore. The drugstore was once owned in downtown Macclenny by City Manager Phil Rhodens father, Paul Rhoden. His family, which dates back generations, donated some of the items inside the replica building. The city manager credited Ms. Hodges with doing a remarkable job promoting and advertising the park and helping plan all the various activities and events there. But he said the park would not even exist if it had not been for its founder, LaViece Smallwood Moser. This park would not be there if not for her hard work, he said. She acquired so many donations and volunteers. The citizens utilization of the park is ever increasing. The foot Whenever people travel to Macclenny to visit the park, the city manager said, its good for the local economy because many of them with gas before leaving town. Ms. Hodges said the park has a core group of about 15-20 regular volunteers, but needs or more for major events. She will work with city leaders to try to recruit more people to join the volunteer group to help out espe cially during large group tours. Mayor Dopson said he was concerned that too little supervision may be available during some visitations, especially when groups of students arrive to go inside the museums. He said he wants to do everything possible to prevent pilferage. Instead of having all the museums open want the buildings open only during regularly scheduled times and possibly with a limit on the number of people allowed inside at any one time. To schedule tours between 9 am and 2 pm Monday through Saturday, or to reserve park grounds for reunions, weddings and other days between 10 am and 5 pm. Scheduled tours through all museums cost $4 per adult and $2 per child. However, there is no charge to simply walk around and look at the buildings from outside or glimpse through the windows anytime the park is open.Classes using Heritage Park for tours I had a good response from teachers.

According to Julia Seals, its hookahs. They are water pipes used to smoke flavored tobacco and feature one or more hoses from which the smoke is inhaled. Ms. Seals, who works for the University of Floridas Area Health Education Center (AHEC), said hookahs present a greater threat to public health because users tend to smoke more tobacco with the aid of the de vice than when smoking traditional cigarettes. She spoke at the June 9 meeting of the Baker Tobacco Free Partnership, a group of health officials focused on stamping out tobacco use, namely among youths. Ms. Seals brought a hookah to showcase, shisha tobacco and charcoal for a demonstration on how the hookah works. She explained how the charcoal used to heat the tobacco produces high levels of carbon monoxide, metals and cancer-causing chemicals. Its been linked to lung, bladder and oral cancers, she said. A typical one-hour long hookah smoking session involves inhaling 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette, said Pam Jeralds, the countys health departments tobacco prevention specialist and a member of the partnership. Secondhand smoke is a serious risk since it contains smoke from the tobacco and smoke from the charcoal, she continued. There is often the misconception that the water in the pipe filters the smoke. It does not. It just cools the smoke. Plus, she said, sharing pipes can spread infectious diseases like herpes and hepatitis. The meeting also featured a number of award presentations to local businesses and government agencies to recognize them for their efforts to curb tobacco use among employees. Donny Sapp, the general manager of Insteel plant in Sanderson, was honored for offering tobacco cessation options for workers. Sara Little, secretary for the Baker County Commission, accepted a plaque on behalf of the board for its adoption of a resolution last year urging retailers to cease the sale and marketing of candy-flavored tobacco products. The Macclenny City Commission was touted for adopting a similar resolution as well. CVS manager Mike Rogers received an award for his companys move this year to discontinue sales of tobacco products.

Lunch will be served shortly after noon.JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comBaker Countys middle and high schoolers by-and-large did worse on this years endof-course exams, or EOCs, and they still lag behind their counterparts statewide. The tests in algebra, geom etry, biology and U.S. history have been phased in since the 2011-12 school year as part of the states move to new, tougher standards designed to make graduates more college and career ready. Every student entering the 9th grade since that year has had to pass the algebra 1 EOC exam to receive a high school diploma in Florida. Yet this year, only 62 percent of the roughly 400 students who took the algebra 1 EOC test in Baker County passed it, meaning they scored a 3 or higher on 1-6 point scale. Thats compared to 66 percent statewide and 67 percent locally last year. Fortunately, the other 38 percent of this years test takers will have another shot at the assessment. The computer-based test is administered three times a year, though most students take it in the spring. While about two-thirds of the eighth, ninth and tenth graders from Baker County who participated last spring passed the algebra exam, the youngest students did the best with 96 percent passing. Fiftyseven percent of ninth graders and 8 percent of tenth graders cleared the hurdle, too. In all but one of the subject areas, the eighth and ninth graders outperformed their el der classmates, this years results show. On the spring geometry EOC exam, 52 percent of the 294 Baker County students who took the test passed it, compared to 64 percent across Florida and 60 percent in Baker County for 2013. The passing rate for ninth graders was 84 percent (up 2 points from last year), for tenth graders 43 percent (down 13 points) and eleventh graders 18 percent (up 5 points). In biology, Baker County had 60 percent of 401 students pass, a drop of 5 percent since last year. Statewide 68 percent passed the biology EOC. Here, 79 percent of ninth graders and 51 percent of tenth graders hit the benchmark, which was a 2 point increase for the freshmen and a 8 point decrease for the sophomores. Baker County performed better on the U.S. history EOC exam, however. Sixty-three percent of the 253 students who took the test here passed compared to 47 percent in 2013 and 65 percent in Florida. Among the juniors at BCHS, 65 percent passed the test. For sophomores, it was 43 per cent. Those results represent a 2 point drop for tenth graders and a whopping 17 point swing up for eleventh graders.EOC test scores sagging Contact the Baker County Fam ily YMCA for more information or to register for these upcom ing programs!Swim lessons available!REGISTER FOR SOCCER!

The results, Mrs. Duncan explained, show some significant and positive shifts since the first survey in 1991 related to healthy eating and exercise trends, but also a lack of progress in other areas. The survey and its results are the work of the federal Centers for Disease Control, or CDC. The survey is administered by county health departments in high schools across the state, though results are not available at the county-level. Local data is available for select large ur ban areas in Florida, including Duval County. The survey data presented indicated a number of measures have remained largely stagnant during the last decade or so. Mrs. Duncan said there hasnt been significant increases or decreases in the portion of students who are overweight or obese, trying to lose weight, drinking sports drinks or playing regular team sports. One survey question regarding whether teens see themselves as overweight showed that females are more likely than their male counterparts to answer yes, though overall 29 percent of students did so, up from 26 percent in 2011. Girls tend to think about these sorts of things more than boys, said Mrs. Duncan. Among the more positive trends, many since 2001: 4 percent increase in the share of teens who said they exercise to lose or maintain their weight. 32 percent drop in students who say they use diet pills, powders or liquids to shed pounds. 14.8 percent rise in those who eat fruits two or more times a day. 17 percent jump since 2009 in those who eat vegetables three or more times daily. 30 percent decline in students who watch three or more hours of television per day. 10 percent decrease since 2011 in those who eat fast food three or more times a week. Said Mrs. Duncan: Thats a very significant decrease in just two years. 29 percent fall since 2007 in those who drink one or more sodas a day. 43 percent increase in those who had at least 60 minutes of physical activity on five or more of the last seven days. There are certain behaviors that the survey has not yet captured, however. Mrs. Duncan pointed to the energy drinks popular among teens that are high in sugar and caffeine and watching television. There isnt a question that addresses that, she said of the energy drinks, adding there will be one next year. While there was a 30 percent decline since 2001 in the portion of respondents who said they watch three or more hours of TV on an average school day, Mrs. Duncan said the survey does not address other screen time that youths may spend on their smart phones, tablets or computers. It looks good, but they always have their iPhones, iPads or something, she said. In other news from the June 9 Healthy Baker meeting, held monthly at the health department on West Lowder Street: J.J. Sweat of Hubbard House announced the domestic violence shelters headquarters in Jacksonville in expanding with a new wing for victims and more offices for staff. It will open up more space for victims from Baker County, Ms. Sweat said. A lot of times when you call, theyre full. Nicki Mizell of the Womens Center of Jacksonville, which provides support to male and female victims of sexual assault, said the organizations outreach work in Baker County, which began last year, has proved fruitful. Were getting more women [from Baker County] coming forward, she said. Another round of tobacco cessation classes, which include free nicotine gum and other quitting assistance, will begin at the health department on July 15 at 5:30 p.m. The classes are once weekly on Tuesday evenings for six weeks.

The team ran through a number of drills that focused on their conditioning, including time in the sand pit. Overall, coach David Crawford was thrilled with what he saw from his team in the opening practice. That was about as ne a rst day of summer condition as anybody can ask for, he told the team after practice. Its still a long way until the rst game, so to come out with this much energy this early encourages me about what kind of team they will be. The B-Cats will keep working on their conditioning and strength through the early part of practice schedule before moving onto the eld later in the summer. Pictured above leading the group on the left is quarterback John Green. JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comWildcats head coach Tom MacPhersons mantra for the summer is a simple one: Improve every day. Our goal is to be better ev ery day, the coach said after tice June 16. If every one of our guys can buy into that, and our coaches can buy into getting better every day and doing things better each day, then well have a good chance. The team began that process Monday when about 80 players took part in the summers opening practice. The players alternated their time between strength training in the weight room and conditioning under the hot sun for the majority of the practice. The squad will work on those aspects of the game throughout the summer as the coaching staff wants to prepare them for the season. Although some of the play ers may already be in playing shape, it never hurts to get into even better shape, coach MacPherson said. Strength and conditioning is huge. Weve got to get in better shape, he said. It showed up in the spring game when we werent able to play at the tempo we wanted to play at and the tempo First Coast threw at us. Even if we won 49-0 in the spring, youve always got to be in better shape. I think the toughest goal as a coach is to get guys every day to understand to get in better shape. You cant worry about what everyone else around you or other schools are doing, you have to be in better shape than you were the day before. cluded with seven-on-seven 45 minutes. The coach wants allowed under FHSAA rules during the summer to continue implementing his system. The team focused on its offensive but switched to a defensivecentered practice on the second day. Even though there was some confusion about assignments, the offenses passing attack executed nicely at times during drill. Quarterback Jacob Carter connected with Mondrell Jef ferson on a deep pass and wide receiver Ridge Horn hauled in a couple tough receptions. Coach MacPherson was happy with the amount of in formation the players retained from the short spring session despite not having practice for several weeks, but he said the team still needs to work on its execution. We did some running and testing and stuff, but this is the running some plays and de fensive coverages again, and I thought the retention level of some of the stuff was really pretty good, coach MacPher son said. Maybe not the execution of it, but the retention level to understand the terminology we taught two-and-a-half weeks ago and only had three weeks to teach. I was really impressed by how the offensive and defensive kids picked up on terminology rather quickly. The Cats will get to see how they stack up against another team when the Oakleaf Knights visit Baker County June 23 for seven-on-seven drills. The session will give the boys a chance to practice against different looks while coaches will get to share information to better each team. Coach MacPhersons team will also go to a Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp July 21 through 26 at Stetson Uni versity. The camp will give the squad an opportunity to play against other schools and grow together as a team, but the head coach wants the players to get something more out of the experience. On top of football, were hoping to get some good core life values and some good Christian-based values where our kids can learn to grow not only as a team but as people, and not only as a football player but as a young man, coach MacPherson said.Purchase this photo at www.bakercountypress.com Photo by Jon ShumakeCoach Tom MacPherson speaks to players after practice early this week.Coach: get better each day Oak Leaf 7-on-7 drills next test up JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Lady Wildcat volmer under new coach Ashley Holton began June 16 as 26 players took part in her initial practice. The practices will run Monday through Thursday throughout the sum mer and focus on conditioning, strength and volleyball skills to prepare the ladies for tryouts in early August. The firstyear coach is pleased with the effort the hopeful Lady Cats are putting forth in the but theyre picking it up quickly, coach Holton said. The returning players are leading the younger girls and helping them out. The team will work on volleyball skills each day while conditioning and strength drills will alternate days. The girls worked on their conditioning in the opening practice with sprints and wall sits. The second day consisted of a variety of exercises including pushups, lunges, six-inch killers and jumping rope. Coach Holton said she knew she always wanted to be a coach and seeing the girls work hard Coaching has always been my passion, she said. Ive grown to love it a lot more than I thought possible. The interest and passion from the girls has me really excited. Photo by Jon ShumakeHayleigh Mulkey PHOTO BY JON SHUM A KE Bria PelfreyVolleyball begins summer practices

ursday, June 19, 2014 T B C P Page 15JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Wildcat baseball team stayed as hot as the weather and remained undefeated during the summer with two blowout home wins by a combined score of 26-9. The boys cruised by visiting Fernandina Beach ka 13-6. Head coach Fred Matricardi is happy with summer games. Its not bad, he said of the win over Fernandina Beach. We played defense and threw strikes until the end and ran the bases well. We did the things we always try to do. The Cats broke a scoreless tie and took a 2-0 third-inning lead after Landon Boyette connected with an RBI single. The boys blew the game open in the following innnig as Boyette drove home two more runs on a double. Owen Register and Jordan Kennedy also knocked home runs in the inning to extend the teams lead. inning to pad its lead to 10-0 before Hunter Riggs blasted an RBI double in the seventh to further add to Baker Countys advantage. The Pirates offense started rolling late in the overcome. Baker Countys win over Fernandina Beach was almost a carbon copy of the victory over Palatka from the previous Thursday. The Cats scored runs with ease and pounced out to a 8-1 lead through run triple in the bottom of the seventh to cap off the teams scoring. into the Cats lead. Although he is happy to be undefeated, coach Matricardi said the scores dont matter as much in the summer as its more of an opportunity to teach the players. We just want to make sure were coaching them up and getting the reps in, he said. It gets them ready for them to play by the springtime. The teams summer schedule will continue when they travel to Douglas, Ga. for four games at South Georgia State College on June 20 and 21. The road trip will give the team an opportunity to play against different competition and give the players a chance to compete in front of college re cruiters.

The young playmaker chose Florida over the other schools because of its location and coaching staff. I wanted to go there mainly because it was close to home and I wanted to play for coach [Amanda] Butler. Shes a very good coach, Washington said. Ive always been a very big Gator fan and I want to achieve my goals at the University of Florida. Lady Cat coach Chris Chisholm joined Washington on her visit to the university and said the program made them feel like they were a part of a big family. Washington is coming off a sophomore campaign that saw her average an area-high 27 points-per-game. She said she wanted to get her college decision out of the way early so she can focus on preparing herself for the college experience. If I got that chance to go to Florida I wanted to do it as fast as I could, she said. I also wanted to get everything in line before my senior year. But before she plays in front of big crowds in the OConnell Center in Gainesville, she still has two more seasons with the Lady Cats. She said she is going to use her time in Baker County to continue bettering herself and her teammates in hopes of making another playoff run. I want to be a big leader, Washington said. I want to help my teammates out and stay focused the entire time. Video of Washington in the gym this week at www.baker countypress.com.

Sixty-seven players signed up for the camp, which is about the same turnout as last year. Coach Matricardi said they struggled to get 30 players the to see the amount of participants has grown. The players will learn about all aspects of the game during the four-day camp, including ning. We do a little bit of everything each day, coach Matricardi said. We do some of the little things they wouldnt get at other places. We go a little more in depth. The coaches teach the young players the things they do at the high school level to get them familiar with the programs system. The kids also get the opportunity to practice alongside members of the Wildcats during the camp. A lot of these kids look up to the high school kids and followed them as they were com ing up, coach Matricardi said. Some of the high school kids end up doing lessons with some of them. Coaches hand out game balls to the Camper of the Day in each group, and a Camper of the Week award will be given out at the end of Thursdays session. The camp not only gives young players the opportunity to work on their basics, it also serves as a chance for eighth graders who are entering high school to prepare for JV tryouts that begin June 19. Tryouts will give the incoming freshmen a chance to play their way onto the summer B squad. The Wildcats had a couple of players make the JV team who took part in last years Big Cat Academy camp. Coach Matricardi said he is hoping he can find a few more players this year who can do the same. The camp wraps up Thursday with the attendees practicing sliding on a water-covered tarp.

There have been lifting programs for the football team in the past, but this marks the first time one specifically for the weightlifting team has been run. Coach Scott McDonald said he wanted to give lifters a place they can work out and maintain their strength and technique during the summer break. They got to keep lifting on a constant basis, coach McDonald said. Its use it or lose it. I wanted to give them a place to continue to train. Nine boys and seven girls showed up for the first day of the voluntary five-week program, but the coach was expecting a better turnout. He hopes that number doubles by the end of the first week. The workouts are open to any hopeful lifters who have an up-to-date physical that meets FHSAA requirements. Two new lifters who werent on the state championship team joined the group for the first day of the summer program, and coach McDonald was happy to have them. If they want to come and workout, Id love for them to be here, he said. The workouts run Monday through Thursday from 2-4 pm.
