Six additional suspects, including two females, are being sought, however. They are Jamie Dannette Sigers, Reginald Keith, Michael Corey Dollison, Tammy Wynell Crews, Rashaad Stephon Church and Ashton Lamonte Amerson. Most of them have previous felony convictions for drug and property crimes. Among those captured last week are four suspects allegedly selling either crack cocaine or methamphetamine to confidential informants working with police. Investigators Matt Yarborough and Mike Hauge conducted the stings, sending the informants to the buys with audio and video recording equipment as well as an audio transmitter, which allows them to listen to the buys from afar. Those arrested last week in Macclenny and Sanderson as a result of the buys are 25-year-old Raymond Lee James, who goes by the alias Lil Ray, Maxie Lee Wilcox, 30, Chester Ray Hadley Jr., 26, who uses the alias Zec, and Bobbie Ozell Blue Jr., 24, also known as Lil Bobbie, sheriffs records show. Another suspect in the undercover investigation, Danielle Cory Ruise, was booked at county jail on June 27 on sale and possession of cocaine within 1000 feet of a church. Mr. Blue of Sanderson is accused of selling $40 worth of crack cocaine at 9765 CR 127, not far from his home address and within 1000 feet of Jonesville Park, the afternoon of May 9, Investigator Hauge said. Mr. Hadley allegedly sold $40 worth of crack cocaine the evening of May 27 in the area of Sanderson Circle and CR 127, and within 1000 feet of Sanderson Congregational Holiness Church. Mr. Wilcox is accused of selling $20 worth of the same drug at the corner of Martin Luther King Drive and Minnesota Avenue the evening of May 9.

The problem was first noted on June 11, said First Coasts vice president of marketing and communications Michelle Moore. She said thats when contractors were contacted, but they werent able to get to the site until this week. The City of Macclenny notified the Ys part-time staffer at the pool early last week about flowing water undermining a portion of the south side of deck, which is where the fracture is located, said City Man ager Phil Rhoden. The city taped off the cracked portion of the deck to keep pool goers away from the damage. Mr. Rhoden said employees noticed the problem when leav ing the citys wastewater treatment plant nearby. He said he believes the water may be coming from a damaged backwash line from the pool. Ms. Moore, however, said the pools builder, Parry Pools, examined the property on Tuesday, July 1, and reported the water was likely rain that drained through the crack. She said a swim meet scheduled at the pool last weekend was moved to an alternate Y pool in Fernandina Beach because of concerns about having a large group of people on the deck. The pool has not been closed as yet. The pool is safe to swim in, said Ms. Moore. The citys building inspector Claude Bagwell evaluated the area too, and told Mr. Rhoden initially there was no threat to life and safety, but that another inspection on July 1 was to confirm that assertion. The erosion goes significantly in there but Claude didnt feel like the pool was compromised, said Mr. Rhoden. He added late Tuesday that the extent of the damage was greater than initially Public salaries: whos making what?Water has carved out below deck at Y poolSee page 2 Sheri Joey Dobson$108,137** Mr. Dobson is a double dipper and collects also about $81,660 in retirement annually Property Appraiser Tim Sweat$99,222 School Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson$99,222 Clerk of Courts Al Fraser$99,222 Tax Collector Gene Harvey$99,222 Supervisor of Elections Nita Crawford$81,718JIM MCGAULEYPUBLISHER EDITORBAKERCOUNTYPRESS.COMEarlier this year when Clerk of Courts Al Fraser announced his retirement midway through his fifth term, many expressed surprise at the nearly $100,000 annual salary the job pays. No doubt it was a major drawing card luring the seven candidates now in the race to replace him in November. The salaries of constitutional officers have been steadily creeping upward since the state took over the job of setting them decades ago, using a com plex formula that takes into consideration a countys population among other things. The system was put in place ostensibly to standardize elected officials salaries across Floridas 67 counties, but it also took them off the hook politically since they can rightly claim they have no control over their pay levels. Its also a convenient foot in the door for state associations of elected officials whose main job is lobbying the Florida Legislature. And making sure salaries stay on the high end is BAKER COUNTY (Supervisory positions) County Manager C.J.

All of Baker Countys elected officials received generous 3.6 percent raises as of October 1, a start date that went largely unnoticed by the general public. The new rates constituted the largest increase in recent years, when salaries were kept static as the economy worsened. County commissioners last week said they favored three percent raises in the new budget for all employees, the first since 2009, when it takes effect in October, one year after elected officials got theirs. Its unclear how much, if any, of the constitutional officers pay will go up next year. So, what is everyone making now? This week The Press gathered up from public entities the cur rent base salaries (not including benefits like health insurance and retirement) of elected officials and supervisory personnel.

Erosion under YMCA pool deckthought, and the city will be monitoring an expansion of the area cordoned off by First Coast to ensure the area remains safe for visitors to the pool. He said First Coast has agreed to enlarge the blocked area immediately with barricades to encompass the entire southern portion of the deck. If they cant make it safe to our satisfaction, well have to close the pool, the manager said. Still, the pool is owned by First Coast YMCA, and fixing it falls to the Jacksonville-based nonprofit. An e-mail from First Coasts vice president of asset manage ment, Kathy Womack, to Mr. Rhoden on June 26 shows First Coast is addressing the damage. We have a new pool engineer that has just started with Y and he has a scheduled visit to the site ... and also a site contractor, Fickling Contracting, will be on site tomorrow. In addition we have asked the original pool contractor, Parry Pools, to complete an evalua tion of the deck and the pool ... We will follow up with you and Mr. Yarborough (assistant city manager) on Monday after our reports, she wrote. Ms. Moore said engineers and contractors didnt make it here until Tuesday. She said a new retaining wall will likely be needed to fix the erosion and new decking to fix the crack. Its going to be a major undertaking, said Mr. Rhoden.

Page3JULY 3, 2014 Okay, heres the picture. Im staring out of a poster with a steely gaze and scraggly beard wearing fatigues and crossed bandoleers and below the picture in is the phrase Viva la Revolucion. Okay, I admit its pretty ridiculous and only mildly relevant to the story Im going to tell you, but there was a time when I was in high school that could have gotten me in serious trouble in todays political climate. It was actually completely innocent and not even my fault. Most of the ridiculous things that I did werent my fault. They were the fault of my best friend Tom Hagood. I was a cautious teenager, clearly seeing the obstacles that lay in my path. Tom saw no obstacles at all to any of his hair-brained schemes. And he had a lot of hair-brained schemes. Ironically, I had lunch with Tom a few months ago when my daughter Sara Beth was in Atlanta at the Shepherd Center. Tom is a Methodist minister at a church in Decatur. I mentioned this incident to him when we were reminiscing and his response was a shake of his head and the comment, What were we thinking? We werent. So here it is. Tom decided to make a rocket that we would launch at Science Club. It was just after New Years and we bought up all the left over sparklers in Lake City at a bargain price. In the end we had about 500 sparklers. Every night we sat in his room scraping the gray stuff off the sparkler wires into a metal pot. Five-hundred sparklers made a pretty decent sized pile of powder. To give it consistency Tom added a bottle of airplane dope, the stuff used to size the canvas that was stretched over the wings of big balsa wood model airplanes. Soon our propellant was the consistency of oatmeal. We packed the stuff into a tennis ball can we had painted red, white and blue. We fashrocket. The next day we took it to school and at lunch we dug a hole outside the back door of the science classroom and set it up for launch at the Science Club meeting after school. This was in the days before caller ID. At least twice a week the school got bomb threats that would send us all to the track while the Lake City Police Department searched the property. You see where this is going? Sixth period we had our second bomb scare of the the month. We trudged out to the track and sat around while the administration and faculty and the LCPD searched the school. Strangely enough, today was a little different. LCPD ofguns all of a sudden showed up on the roof of Columbia with a dog patrolled the halls. This looked serious. About an hour later we were cleared to go back to class. Not long after that, Tom was esus made any connection to the rocket outside of the science classroom until Tom started to be grilled about it by the principal and police chief. What saved us was the fact that Tom had mentioned the rocket to the science teacher and the fact that no one could imagine us doing anything the least bit malicious. Tom was president of student council and I was completely harm less. We both had spotless discipline records. Tom got a tongue-lashing and a warning ble to school. I was a nervous wreck when I heard about it. Tom was mad that Science Club had been canceled. That was the differ ence in our personalities. Nowadays, in this political context we would have probably been arrested and expelled for having an explosive device and hauled off by Homeland Security instead of the principal shaking his head and calling us goofballs. Which, of course we were. That night we launched the rocket in Toms back yard. The success of our rocket is probably testament to why we are a teacher and minister instead of rocket scientists. Our rocket never got off the ground. It did, however, make a rockets red glare that was beautiful to see. That is, until it caught Toms back it out with brooms. Okay, so that poster I mentioned isnt really appropriate. More appropriate would white hair and crazy eyes of Dr. Emmett Brown from Back to the Future holding a Mr. Fusion Personal Home Nuclear Reactor made from a Mr. Coffee machine and saying something about the Flux Capacitor and 1.21 Jigowatts of power. Happy Independence Day and when you light a sparkler think of me.LETTER TO THE EDITOR IMPRESS I ONSJim McGauley Tropical Storm Arthur a big deal?Meteorologist Scott Cordero of the National Weather Service in Jacksonville reported Tuesday that winds are expected at 10 to 20 mph for inland counties in the region and Baker County is forecast to get .84 inches through the weekend, about half of which is expected on Thursday.

Tammy Harvey Brownlee: Crescent Beach. Shauna Scott Jones: Mick lers Landing. Lots of shark teeth for us to nd. LIKE US ON FACEBOOKTO JOIN THE DISCUSSION MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD Were back on familiar territory. Our Mike Anderson reported last week that the Baker self again in the position of ed revenues to balance next years budget thats called Congress. County Manager C.J. Thompson estimated initially the shortfall at about $2.5 million if the projected budget holds at $27.35 million, then quickly scaled that back to $2 million because health insurance premiums could hold at current levels if the claim level stays static, and the county plays nice with United Health care and agrees not to seek bids from other carriers. Whoosh! A half-million disappears, but theres still $2 million shortfall in this, the preliminary budget process. As those who follow the process are aware, budget incomes and outgoes tend to nally comes out of the oven in September. The plan to further narrow quiring employees to fork over a greater portion of health insurance premiums for family coverage, a move that will likely result in howls of protest because it comes out of take home. Those affected may want to look at it another way join the chorus because thats what a lot of us have already had to do. Eyes will be on the county board, though, as it calls in as to why they have all sought more funds in the coming year. Commissioners should ask have spent category-by-cate cal year. They should take a hard look also at contingency money built into the current year budget. Thats an imabove what is held in reserve for carry-over until next years revenues start to pour in should be scrutinized closely. If requests for more staff are part of new budget rethe reasons in great detail. If year-to-date spending hints at over-budgeting last summer, that should be questioned as well. All expenses not directly related to the day-to-day operlike travel, should come under the microscope. All this might lead to conment heads accusing the commission of micromanaging bers should make it clear early in the process that spending must be in line with actual needs and budget padding not allowed. The goal? Avoid dipping into the countys surplus funds yet another year. Kicking the can down the road, if you will. Can such line-item scrutiny erase what is now a $2 milit would be refreshing to see the board resolve that it be the goal this year, and the next and the next. As the county manager hinted last week, the balancing act this year may not be that dire and anticipated revenues from state and other sources could be greater. Perhaps, and if individual budgets are pared down from present requests and more money does come in, it will mean one of two favorable outcomes. Come into balance without raiding the kitty, or better yet, extra largess from higher up and actually add to the funds held in reserve.

Mr. James is suspected of selling sixth-tenths of a gram of meth for $30 from his Brent Lane address in Macclenny back in August of 2013, according to Investigator Yarborough. He said in his report that the informant drove Mr. James to the intersection of Woodlawn Park Place and Woodlawn Road where the suspect left the vehicle to buy the drugs nearby. He allegedly called the suspect later to meet him back at his residence where the transaction would take place. The investigator said the recording equipment stopped working, however, when Mr. James exited the informants vehicle on Woodlawn. Two of the suspects ar rested in what the sheriffs office dubbed Operation Clean Sweep, were not the result of undercover buys. It was a selfie posted to Facebook that led investigators to Mr. Gaineys doorstep on CR 250. Police found photos of the suspect and Phillip Arnold Bennett III posing with guns and cash. Mr. Bennett was recently apprehended in Maryland and extradited back to Baker County on weapons and trespassing charges. The photos were posted to the Mr. Bennetts Facebook page on May 18, Investigator Hauges report indicates. The officer knew Mr. Bennett was a convicted felon and thus is not permitted to possess firearms. When he and other deputies conducted a knock and talk at Mr. Gaineys home on May 22, Mr. Gainey consented to a search of the residence that uncovered two rifles, marijuana and bags with meth residue, the investigator said. He noted Mr. Gainey agreed in May to cooperate in future narcotics investigations, but never did so. That led to a warrant for his arrest this month on the drug and weapons offenses. Mr. Gainey is a felon as well. Mr. Taylor, meanwhile, was driving on CR 250 in Taylor on May 21 when investigators in an unmarked vehicle approached his Ford F150 from behind and found the tag expired last year. After a traffic stop and search of the vehicle, they found about 22 grams of marijuana and three hydrocodone pills inside. The investigators released Mr. Taylor from the scene on the premise he would assist them in the future in exchange for not being prosecuted. When that didnt happen, a warrant was sought for his arrest on the drug possession charges. Three more suspects not involved in the drug investigations but with outstanding warrants were also taken into custody last week.

The Florida Highway Patrol is awaiting the results of a toxicology screen to determine if Mr. Bryant, 25, or the victim, Kit Irwin Tappen, 41, was drinking prior to the 3:15 a.m. collision near mile marker 323. Charges pend the outcome of those tests, FHP reported, but none have been filed as yet. Mr. Tappen was helping a motorist on the side of the road when Mr. Bryant drove past and struck the man with the rear wheels of the trucks trailer, FHP said. The disabled 2006 Pontiac was smashed as well. The cars driver was not identified by FHP. Mr. Bryant has a spotty driv ing history, court records show. Back in the spring of 2007 he pleaded guilty to failing to report damage to unattended vehicle in Baker County. He was arrested for reckless driv ing here that summer and com pleted a six-month probation sentence in the fall. He was ticketed twice in 2011 and again in 2012, the latter of which trig gered a temporary license suspension for failure to pay traffic fines. In Duval County he was arrested in July 2008 on charges of resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly intoxication. He pleaded guilty to the resisting count and the other counts were dropped, court records indicate. They also show he was ticketed in the jurisdiction for speeding and not wearing a seatbelt in 2010 and 2011, respectively.Driver of semi that killed man was localA circuit judge on June 24 sentenced a Glen St. Mary man to eight months in county jail in return for no contest pleas to two of three offenses he was charged with in May while he was on probation. James H. Clark entered the pleas to a lesser charge of attempted possession of a controlled drug and felony driving on a suspended license. The state dropped a count of having the wrong tag on his vehicle. Judge Mark Moseley allowed Mr. Clark credit for 61 days in jail since his arrest. His past criminal record includes lewd assault on a child less than 16, drunk driving and disorderly intoxication. In the only other jail sentence handed down that day, Mikell McKenzie of Sanderson admitted to a probation violation and will serve a six-month sentence. The judge gave him credit for more than 300 days in jail. Mr. McKenzie was arrested back in April for driving and never obtaining a license, and was on community control (house arrest) at the time, court records indicate. His past record includes sale of cocaine, marijuana possession and bringing contraband into the jail. In cases that were handled during an earlier court session on June 17, Judge Moseley placed Matthew D. Crews on drug offender probation for three years after he pleaded no contest to sale of controlled drugs and possession with intent to sell. Mr. Crews was also ordered to complete 75 hours community service and adjudication of guilt will be withheld if he successfully adheres to terms of the probation. Also that day: Nina Fogarty pleaded no contest to attempted purchase of controlled drugs and was sentenced to 120 days already in county jail. The judge withheld adjudication of guilt in the case of William provided he complies with terms of a one-year probation. Jeremy Taylor pleaded no contest to growing marijuana and will be on drug offender probation 18 months. The judge allowed credit for 105 days in jail in the case of Charles Unartel Jr., who pleaded no contest to felony marijuana possession and having drug paraphernalia. The credit comes off a nine-month sentence. A similar term in jail was ordered in the case of Hunter Ingalls, who admitted to violating probation stemming from 2013 cases of growing marijuana within 1000 feet of a church or business, and possession with intent to sell. Russell McDermitt had mere days remaining in the 60-day sentence given him in return for a no contest plea to violation of pretrial release stemming from a domestic violence charge.8 months in jail off Woodlawn Road on weapons possession and dealing in stolen property charges. Hes one of two suspects who were sought for allegedly stealing two handguns from Charles Pipkins residence on South Lincoln Avenue in Glen St. Mary between mid-March and mid-May while he was in the hospital and selling them to Pe ter Kemp, also of Glen. The other suspect, Darryl Manning, also a convicted felon, was arrested on the same charges the same day, April 14, the guns were reported stolen, court records show. Last month the state attorneys of fice dropped all the charges against him. A grand theft count against Mr. Porterfield was also dropped. He faces two counts of firearms possession and two counts of dealing in stolen property. James Allen Rhoden Jr., 24, of Glen St. Mary was arrested at his home on Charney Rhoden Road for forgery and dealing in stolen property. Hes accused of scrapping appliances reported stolen back in January from two trailers on Sunshine Lane. Thomas Marvin Suggs Jr., 40, of Macclenny was taken into custody at his home on Birdpond Road for violation of probation. He reportedly failed a drug test and to report to his probation officer. The probation stemmed from a burglary case on Benny Jo Bennett Road in Sanderson in May, 2013.

The suspect, Joseph Jacob MacQuarrie, 18, is set to be sentenced on July 8 for an accidental shooting here last November. He also has a suspended license. Its unclear whether either of those circumstances prompted him to run from officers. Deputies reported that Mr. MacQuarrie ran several stop signs, cut off other motorists on Interstate 10 and attempted to run down two sheriffs office deputies, Jeremiah Combs and Ben Anderson, immediately following the initial traffic stop as well as multiple patrol cars during the ensuing pursuit from Macclenny and into the Marietta area of west Jacksonville. The incident began about 10:50 a.m. when Deputy Combs spotted a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor leaving the My Fuel gas station at U.S. 90 and 6th Street, which matched the description of a car reportedly piloted by a reckless driver. The officer stopped the Mitsubishi in front of the Emily Taber Library where the suspect failed to produce a drivers license. According to deputies, he revved his engine once while the officers were trying to verify his identity with a portable fingerprint scanning device and apologized for doing so and saying it was an accident. He then allegedly put the vehicle in gear and jerked to steering wheel to his left, causing the deputies to dodge the moving car. The chase headed east through Macclenny before returning to South 5th Street and onto Interstate 10 where the Florida Highway Patrol and Jacksonville Sheriffs Office joined the pursuit at speeds of 85 to 95 mph. FHP used stop sticks to disable the Mitsubishi and Mr. MacQuarrie continued to flee on foot. A K-9 officer caught up with him, taking him to the ground, where Deputy Combs said he tased the suspect because he wouldnt show officers his hands. He was arrested by FHP and booked into the Duval County jail. Now Mr. MacQuarrie faces felony charges of fleeing police and aggravated assault both in Baker and Duval counties. He also has misdemeanor counts for resisting an officer without violence and driving with a suspended license. The suspect is scheduled to be sentenced next week for the accidental shooting of his 13-year-old half-brother last November. He is charged with possession of a firearm by felon, tampering with evidence, improper exhibition of a weapon and culpable negligence in the shooting. He has entered a plea of no contest in the case, in which he allegedly hid the gun following the shooting and lied about what transpired at his fiancs mothers home on Tom Wilkerson Road.Chase ends in west JacksonvilleSemi-truck stolen from lot at motelBattered girlfriend ees houseThree in SUV wanted in S.C.

The figure has been declining through the first half of 2014 and the small increase comes as an estimated 219 new workers joined the labor force and the number of employed workers in the pool grew by an estimated 148 people. The number of unemployed workers rose by an estimated 71 individuals, however. That means there is more than twice as many new workers finding jobs than not find ing them, according to the figures, which are culled from surveys by the U.S. Department of Labor. Chamber of Commerce director Darryl Register said the increase could be attributed to more students and college graduates entering the job mar ket this time of year. He also said he believes there are jobless workers not reflected in the data. I think there is still some number not being counted ... The professionals say it could be between 5 and 10 percent, but theres no way to put a number on it. Overall, the chamber director said the local economy is doing better today than in re cent years. The economy is definitely moving in the right direction, but it will be a while until we get back to what we thought were the good times, he said, adding that new retail stores opening here like Hibbett Sports and Dollar General is reason to view the future of the countys economy positively. Baker County has the fourth lowest unemployment rate in the six county region consisting of St. Johns (4.9 percent), Nassau (5.2 percent), Clay (5.3 per cent), Duval (6.2 percent) and Putnam (7.9 percent) counties. The state and national jobless rates also inched up in May, estimates show. The Jacksonville metro area has gained some 21,000 jobs this year, CareerSources re gional job report states, with most of the gains coming in leisure and hospitality sector, followed by professional and busi ness services jobs and trade, transportation and utility jobs.

ursday, July 3, 2014 T B C P Page 9MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF It took a death in his family and a stroke two years ago to force Hance Jones to close the country store and gas station he had operated on CR 229 in a remote corner of Baker County for almost half a century. Now, with his health restored, he wants to reopen Jones Store and continue serving the sparsely populated community several miles south of Sanderson. He said former customers can hardly wait. Everybodys been aggravating me about it, Mr. Jones said, noting that the next closest store All he has to do is get the county commission to approve an application for a land use and zoning change at a public hearing at 6 p.m. on July 15. He already has the backing of the countys Land Planning Agency, which reviews zoning proposals. The LPA board recommended on June 26 that the .23-acre store site, which is part of Mr. Jones 8.3-acre homestead and surrounded by agricultural land, be rezoned to commercial general and the future land use designation be changed from ag riculture to commercial. The advisory panel supported Mr. Jones petition despite a recommendation of denial from Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston, who said approv ing the request would constitute spot zoning. received nothing but support for Mr. Jones. Ive had no objections, Mr. Preston said, and everybody who has heard about the pro posed reopening of the store has said the sooner the better. Mr. Jones opened his convenience store and gas pump in 1966, long before the county adopted its comprehensive plan and Land Development Regulations, which control and regulate growth. It was allowed to stay in business but was considered a non-conforming use, Mr. Preston said. It always has been oper ated as a store but it has never been zoned commercial, he explained to the LPA board, adding that if the store had been closed for less than 90 days it could reopen legally. But once a non-conforming use ceases to be used for its original purpose for 90 days or lon ger, it must conform to current land use and zoning regulations, Mr. Preston said. The 90-day rule is arbitrary, but it is pretty standard in most counties, he said. Land for miles around the store is restricted to residential and agricultural use and zoning regulations allow no more than one dwelling for every 7.5 acres. Nonetheless, Mr. Preston said he sympathized with Mr. Jones. Its a country store and it serves a useful purpose, he said. But our code does not recognize that. Maybe not. But four mem bers of the LPA did, including Philip Zamarron, whose motion to approve the application and send it on to the county commission was unanimously approved 4-0. There is a community need and the community has voiced their opinion that they would like to see it open, said Mr. alized the store was no longer open last year. I was driving out that way about a year ago and thought Id be able to get a soda there and there was nobody around, he said. If approved by the county commission the commercial zoning would apply only to the store parcel, which measures 100 feet wide by 100 feet deep. In addition to a cinder block building, the property includes a storage shed and an above ground gasoline storage tank. Though clearly contrary to the countys zoning code, the LPA decision received only a mild warning from its legal adviser, John Kopelousos, one of three Orange Park lawyers hired by the county last year. Its clear that this is not a permissible use, Mr. Kopelousos said. Its classic spot zoning. But you dont have anybody objecting to it. Basically, he told the panel that if nobody challenges it you can do it. If that were to happen, he said, he would be unable to successfully defend the boards de cision. Therefore, he offered the board a practical, non-legal solution grant Mr. Jones the rezoning he needs and later adopt new zoning language to allow it. The board agreed to have the attorney and Mr. Preston draft an appropriate zoning amend ment to present to the county commission later, possibly deleting the 90-day rule regarding non-conforming uses. If the issue isnt addressed now it is bound to come up again as the county begins to grow, as it certainly will, said Mr. Ko pelousos, who was involved in drafting zoning and land use laws during Clay Countys booming development over the past quarter century. Its going to explode out here in the next 25 years, he said. Baker County is in a transition period. Mr. Jones said state inspectors have been to his property and found the septic tank and fuel storage tank in good condition and he never had the electric service to the building disconnected. All he needs to begin stocking his store shelves with groceries gas is permission from the county commission.LAND PLANNING AGENCY Friday, July 4th5-9 pmat Memorial Park(by the Duck pond)Food & Fun Entertainment Fireworks Barrel Train, Crafts & More!Vendor booths available call 259-6433.

Our water source is ground water from ve wells. The wells draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Our water is obtained from ground water sources and is aerated and chlorinated for disinfection purposes. Aqua Mag is added for corrosion control at City of Macclenny. In 2013 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are no sources of contamination identied for this system. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state..us/swapp This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Richard Harris or Walter Sloan at 904-259-4491. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month at City Hall at 7pm. The City of Macclenny routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013, and pre sented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In the table below, you may nd unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following denitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reect the benets of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.City of MacclennyIf present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and compo nents associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Macclenny is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at City of Macclenny would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. **Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides and herbicides, and volatile organic contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)MCL Violation Y/N Level Detected Range of Results MCLG MCL Likely Source of ContaminationRadiological Contaminants/City of MacclennyAlpha emitters (pCi/L) 6/2011 N 5.4 ND-5.4 0 15 Erosion of natural depositsContaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)MCL Violation Y/N Level Detected Range of Results MCLG MCL Likely Source of ContaminationInorganic ContaminantsAntimony (ppb) 6/2011 N 0.3 ND-0.3 6 6 Discharge from petroleum reneries; re retardants; ceramics; electronics; solder Arsenic (ppb) 6/2011 N 1.5 ND-1.5 0 10 Erosion of natural deposits; runoff from orchards; runoff from glass and electronics production wastes Barium (ppm) 6/2011 N 0.016 0.0120.016 2 2 Discharge of drilling wastes; discharge from metal reneries; erosion of natural deposits Flouride (ppm) 6/2011 N 0.88 0.46-0.88 4 4.0 Erosion of natural deposits; discharge from fertilizer and alumi num factories.

ursday, July 3, 2014 T B C P Page 13JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThirty participants in this years Relay For Life fundraiser gathered at the Womans Club the evening of June 26 for a wrap party to celebrate their record-breaking efforts with dinner, desert and games. This years event, the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and held last May, raised more than $52,000 with cash still coming in, said Lea Rhoden, who oversees relay events here and in Clay County. Thats compared to about $47,000 and the most ever raised in the events 13-year history in Baker County. The number of participants has also ballooned five cancer survivors in 2010 to 85 this year. Ms. Rhoden was also proud to say Baker Countys total surpassed all four for the relays held in Clay County. Baker County, with a population of roughly 27,000, raised just shy of $2000 for every man, woman, child and inmate here. Fleming Island, meanwhile, with a similarly sized but more affluent population, raised about $45,000 this year, Ms. Rhoden said. Orange Park has almost 9000 people, but ample corporate sponsorship opportunities, and raised a mea ger $6275. Middleburg raised some $16,000 and Oak Leaf about $25,000, she said. A big corporate supporter in Baker County has been Walmart, which has an incentive program that donates money for each hour its em ployees volunteer at a relay fundraising event. All they have to do is go to relay. They dont actually have to raise any money, said Ms. Rhoden. Another wealthy corporate partner is DuPont, which accounted for some $12,000 of Baker Countys total, including $2000 given on the day of the relay last from auctioning of old equipment. Then there was all the smaller teams of friends, family or coworkers who chipped in, too. Thats what sets this community apart, the community buy-in, she said. Recognized at the wrap up party last week were the top team and top individual fundraisers. DuPont raised $12,371 for the top team honor while Kelly Lowery from the Holy Walkamolies team raised $1302 for the individual award. This years event was led by a committee of 25 people, including chairwoman Kristie Fletcher.

Looking of what we were losing. Look ing in the present was to see Maggie leaving us. Looking ahead made us fear life with out her. It was in looking beside us that we found comfort. Beside us were so many incredible friends and family offering care, love, prayers, and helping hands. From Mayos nurses and Dr. David Salek, to the angels of Hospice, Jeana Smith, Catherine Thomas, Scott and Anna Duren, all that was humanly possible was done with extraordinary care and compassion. As our hearts were breaking, our Macclenny Primitive Baptist Church family provided the solace of true faith. Elders Jim Sandlin and David Crawford so eloquently helped us celebrate the loving nature of Maggies spirit and soul. Victoria McKenzie and Roosevelt Ruise provided a moving tribute to our Maggie in song and music. In addition to the love and support from our precious families and friends, we were blessed with the love and warmth of our second family, Sheriff Joey Dobson and the men and women of the Baker For these people, Maggies friends and fellow artists, and everyone in our community who said a prayer for us, hurt with us, and loved us, we will be eternally grateful! Thank you all for being beside us.Joey and Karen Shook Amanda and Matt Moore Kevin ChobertThanks so muchThe family of Leslie Weathington would like to thank and prayers, and the nurses who were here for him. I really appreciate the gentle care he received, and the love and compassion I received from my family, the nurses, Jamie, Cathy, Jan and especially Margaret. They are so full of love and compassion. A spe cial thank you to Pastor Bobby Ray Crawford for the very loving sermon. Thank you all and may Gods blessings always be with you.Jane Weathington Purchase this photo at www.bakercountypress.com Photo by Joel AddingtonFrom left are Christine Horn, Frances Frost, Mary Finley and Marilyn Hodges at the Relay For Life wrap party.Fetes record-breaking year PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Attendees play a guessing game prior to their meal.

The sign-up period will end July 18 and is available for non-industrial private forest landowners. The southern pine beetle is one of the most destructive forest pests in the Southeast, said Adam Putnam, commissioner of the department, which oversees the forest service, in a recent press release. By taking preventative measures now, Floridas private landowners can greatly reduce their risk of timber loss during future outbreaks. Periodic outbreaks can rapidly kill millions of pine trees and deplete tens of thousands of acres of timber resources. The most recent series of major southern pine beetle outbreaks resulted in an estimat ed $59 million in timber loss between 1999 and 2002. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance Program is offered for private lands in 44 northern Florida counties, including Baker County. The program provides incentive payments for the following: wood thinning. Conducting prescribed burning operations. Conducting mechanical underbrush treatments. Planting longleaf or slash pine. Since 2005, we have assisted many private forest land owners through this program, said Jim Karels, Director of the Florida Forest Service. More than 150,000 Florida acres have been treated for southern pine beetle prevention. To learn more about this program and obtain an application form, contact a local or visit www.FreshFromFlorida.com/SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention. apply for no more than two approved preventative practices per year.

Page16JULY 3, 2014 JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comMacclennys Caleb Scott has been selected to compete in the Baseball Factorys Pirate City National World Series in Bradenton later this month. The catch: the 15-year-old athlete needs some $3000 for the trip. Hes been soliciting donations online and raised $750 thus far. Mr. Scott has been playing baseball for about a decade, including for the middle schools Bobcats this year. The soon-tobe freshman at the high school also played basketball and football for the middle school. He said his favorite sport is football because he enjoys the action and excitement of the games, particularly when the crowd is rooting for him. Its so entertaining, he said of the sport. Its exciting to hear the fans. The same goes for his second favorite sport. When you hit a home run or something like that, its really exciting to hear the crowd cheering, he said. In both sports, Mr. Scott gets to use his talent for running fast. Normally, they have me in the outfield. I like it because I can run down anything that comes to me, he says. He also enjoys working hard, and most importantly, the camaraderie with fellow teammates. The teen spoke to The Press while on his way to baseball tryouts at the high school the afternoon of June 19. What are his goals? I want to be somebody, he said. I want people to know me. The Deerfield Road resident made the Baseball Factory team after being invited to a tryout last April in Tallahassee. The 20-year-old organization is based in Maryland and does similar tryouts around the country. Its web site boasts that 99 percent of Division I college baseball programs have at least one Baseball Factory alum on their teams. Mr. Scott hopes to be one of those student athletes someday and calls the Pirate City National World Series, which will run from July 25-29, a once in a lifetime opportunity, shows his profile page at http://www. gofundme.com/8uajdo. We will be competing against the best players and teams in the country and will be coached by professional baseball players and pro scouts. Ive trained for years with the hopes and dreams of playing with the best, it reads. Photo by Katie Bug PhotographyCaleb Scott on the mound.Eyes national world series JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR jonshu@live.comThe Wildcats continued improving on the gridiron with a solid showing June 26 against Class 5A runner-up Clay High School in seven-on-seven Both the offense and defense rebounded nicely after getting off to slow starts against the Blue Devils and played well throughout the second half of the practice. Quarterback Jacob Carter completed more than 60 percent of his throws during the and no interceptions. The defense combined for from free safety Mason Batten. Early on, we had trouble catching the ball, but our reads got a lot better, coach Tom MacPherson said after the drills. Our spacing with our routes got a lot better. Defensively, our communication got a lot better. We started to win some balls in the air and intercept some balls, which was nice. As far as the progression from spring game to Monday to Tuesday to tonight, I think it was phenomenal. I think we are really getting better. However, the team wasnt without its faults on the night. The wide receivers struggled to hang onto the ball during the practice and dropped almost 10 passes, one of which went directly into the hands of a Blue Devil defender for an easy interception. Coach MacPherson was once again happy with the Carters reads, but not the amount of time it took him to make them. The quarterbacks have to be able to read the coverages sooner and get the ball out of their hands quicker, the head coach said. Defensively, the coach also wants to see better coverage against deep passes as the summer rolls along. Although the defense picked off eight passes, they allowed Clay receivers to get behind them several big gains for the Blue Devils. The coaches can live with the opposing offense completing short passes, but the deep balls could cost them games in the fall. Im still not happy with the amount of receivers behind us on defense in coverage, coach MacPherson said. Were giving up too many long balls. We can rally to some of the short throws, but the long balls are going to get you killed in a hurry. The drills against Clay came two days after the Cats traveled to Bartram Trail for additional sev en-on-seven drills. Coach MacPherson said the Bears did different motions and shifts that his team wasnt used to, but it wasnt a bad practice overall. The Cats will return to practice July 7 and host coach MacPhersons former team, the Ridgeview Panthers, for seven-on-seven drills the following day.Purchase this photo at www.bakercountypress.com Photo by Jud JohnsonJohn Boo Crawford runs down the receiver.Purchase this photo at www.bakercountypress.com Photo by Jud JohnsonSeth Paige ghts his way to the catch.

Landon Boyette hit go-ahead two-RBI hits in both games of the teams July 1 home doubleheader against Middleburg to help catapult the boys to victory. The Cats held stopped a late surge to win the second game 7-5. Boyette drilled a two-RBI double to deep left the Cats a 3-2 lead in the third inning. Kennedy added another run in the bottom of the The Broncos wouldnt go down quietly, however, as they clawed their way back into and sixth inning to pull within one. Middle burg had runners on second and third with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inthe game. The second game went much easier for the Cats until the closing frame when the Broncos made things interesting. Boyettes second two-RBI hit of the day, this one a single, gave the team a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the third. Justin Waddell padded the lead with a two-RBI triple in the bottom of Baker County led 7-2 entering the bottom of the seventh when Middleburgs offense came alive. The Broncos scored three quick runs to close the score to 7-5 and had the go-ahead run on base with two outs. Pitcher Bryce Watson showed poise by navigating his way out of the tight situation to seal the win for the boys. The doubleheader came about a week after the boys went on the road June 25 and put away the hosting Terry Parker Braves 11-5. Boyette, Dylan Hall and Andrew Dehart all swung the bat well, coach Matricardi said, and the team had good showings on the mound and each pitcher saw an inning of action. The game at Parker came a few days after the boys returned home from a two-day trip to South Georgia State College in Douglas, Ga., June 20 and 21. The team won three games and tied one during the road trip. Cameron Wilson threw four innings and allowed only one hit to help give the team a shutout 10-0 win over Middleburg. The Cats won both games over the Punishers travel team and Metter, Ga., by the score of 15-6. Hall, Boyette, Waddell and Jordan Kennedy all had multiple hits during the wins. The only game the squad hasnt won so far was a 1-1 tie with Oakleaf in Douglas. The Cats scored the tying run and coach Matricardi wanted to keep playing, but the game was called after regulation and ended in a tie. In addition to the four games, South Georgia State College offered Kennedy and Zach Rafuse scholarships. The two current Wildcats could join for mer teammates Mikal Flores and Jared Crews, who both signed with the school earlier this year, if they decide to sign there. Coach Matricardi is happy about the pipeline that is developing between Baker County and South Georgia and said it would give kids a great opportunity to go to college and continue their education and baseball careers. Overall, the coach is excited about what hes seen so far during the summer. We have a lot of experiencing coming back, coach Matricardi said. Im expecting a good year this year. Well hopefully make it a little bit further than we have been. If we stay healthy, well have a chance to be really good. While the A-team has gone unbeaten thus far, the B-team hasnt had the same success and have lost three out of four. The team lost both games of a doubleheader July 1 at Oakleaf. The boys dropped their first game to Waycross 6-2 before responding with a 11-5 win over Camden. Caleb Scott and Josh Haygood, who were key players on the BCMS Bobcats conference title team, played well in the opening games, and are two of 13 incoming ninth graders who made the B-team. Even with the poor overall record so far, coach Matricardi said the upcoming crop of JV players looks promising and theyll get up to speed quickly.
