JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR email@example.comThree sisters from Baker County traveled to New York City two weeks ago on a mission. Their father and former Supervisor of Elections John J. Barton, who died in 2010, was a long-time fan of the Today show on NBC and always wanted to see it in person. Unfortunately, he never made it. So we did it for him, said Stephanie Hardenbrook of Macclenny, the oldest of her siblings and a big fan of Hoda Kotb, one of the shows two headliners. His dream was to always go to the Today show and his daughters made it, she said. More than just being present for the live broadcast on July 2, the group also wanted to get on television, which meant being in line at 3 am. And they did it, garnering cameos at the start and end of the program while they hollered and waved the signs they made the previous evening. One read: Hello Macclenny! My phone immediately went to blowing up, Ms. Hardenbrook recalled. Their group included her youngest sister, Lawanda Schiberras of Yulee, her middle sister Tina Carver, Ms. Carvers daughter Erica, both of Macclenny, and friend Joyce Hodges with her son Allen, also of Macclenny. We put Macclenny on the map, she said. They met and took photos with celebrities like Nick Cannon, Carson Daily and Hoda Kotb, who visited with the group prior to the taping. I could hardly breath, Ms. Hardenbrook said of the moment she met Ms. Kotb. While in New York City, they visited the sites Time Square, the Empire State Building, Guy Fieris restaurant as well as the Cake Boss bakery. They saw Cinderella on Broadway, too. It was so exciting, said Ms. Hardenbrook. The flight to NYC was also the sisters first plane ride. We all sucked it up and got on the plane for our daddy, she said. Sentimental journey to NYCA Macclenny man who already had four felony drug sale and possession counts pending against him when he was re-arrested two weeks ago, was sent to prison for three years after pleading to all the charges in circuit court on July 8. Maxie Wilcox Jr., 30, entered the pleas to two counts each to sale and possession of cocaine within 1000 feet of a community center stemming from controlled buys last Novem ber from persons working He was scheduled for a case management hearing that day in court, and instead pleaded ditional count stemming from a controlled buy back in May. Mr. Wilcoxs prior criminal record includes convictions possession of cocaine. In other prison sentences handed down that day by Judge Mark Moseley: Seventeen-year-old Terrence Dean Potts pleaded no contest to burglary and burglary while armed and will serve two years in a youth offender prison followed by four years on probation. The defendant and an 11-year-old acquaintance were arrested shortly after they took two handguns from a neighbors residence near Macclenny last November. Because of his past record that aggravated assault and cruelty to animals, the teen was adjudicated as an adult. Wendy Delgross, 46, of Macclenny will serve an 18-month prison term after pleading no contest to felony DUI with property damage, leaving the scene of an acciand driving on a suspended license. MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Baker County Tax Collector Gene Harvey made an appearance before the Macclenny City Commission last week to explain how a computer error in his office caused the city to be in debt to the school district to the tune of about $137,000. This is probably the worst thing in my political career that has happened since Ive been in office and I hope it never hap pens again, Mr. Harvey said at the commission meeting on the evening of July 8. He attributed the mistake to faulty computer software that distributed property tax revenue to the city and other taxing authorities that should have gone to the school district instead. New software was in stalled earlier this year to correct the problem, he said. The problem stemmed from a 2008 state constitutional amendment that granted a second $25,000 homestead exemption to Florida property owners in all taxing jurisdictions except school districts, which were exempt from the additional tax break. We collected correctly but we distributed incorrectly, Mr. Harvey told city commissioners. Its weird how our computer did that but it did. Thats not good news, Mayor Gary Dopson said in re sponse to the tax collectors explanation. It also wasnt good news to the county commission when that body was told two weeks ago, during a 2014-15 budget workshop, that the same computer malfunction incorrectly distributed $1.2 million in tax revenue to the county budget. However, to minimize the fiscal impact on the county and city budgets school authorities have agreed to accept the money back in interest-free annual payments over the next four years. Mr. Harvey credited Mar celle Richardson, the school districts executive director for support services, with bringing the taxing error to his atten tion. In a letter to Mrs. Richardson dated Oct. 11, 2013, he said a review by his director of information services determined that our program was handling the distribution in correctly. All taxes were collected from 2008 through 2012, be cause at the end of each year we balanced the tax rolls, Mr. Harvey further stated in the letter. However, the under distributed portion for the School District was given to all of the other taxing authorities, which Above (l-r) Erica Carter, Stephanie Hardenbrook, Lawanda Schiberras and Tina Carter pose with celebrity Nick Cannon.

Page3JULY 17, 2014 down. That usually crowded streets are empty, that businesses come to a screeching halt as employ ees are gathered around televi sions. People scream and cheer and cry and whole nations go into mourning when their teams lose. In the United States, World Cup fever means that you walk into a sports bar on a Sunday afternoon and one of the 27 television screens is tuned in to the game and the people sitting around it arent screaming for the waitress to change the channel! Are you people a bunch of Communists? Thats World Cup fever in the United States. I had friends casually tune in to the Cup and get hooked. It will do that to you. We discussed some of the vagaries of the game that separate it from American football. Soccer never really stops for more than a few seconds. If somebody like Clint Dempsey of the USA gets a broken nose it was broken twice in this gets a piece of gauze stuck up his honker and comes back on for the rest of the game. If a player gets hurt, lets makes a two-footed tackle into someones knee causing an injury that would put an American football player out for six weeks. In soccer, and sprays the guys knee from the magic bottle. It looks like water, but must have come from The Fountain of Youth, because the player gets up and keeps playing. Its amazcouple of gallons of it. If a guy from Italy, Brazil, the Netherlands or Argentina gets bumped into he will go down like a sniper put a bullet in him from the top of the stadium. He will roll around like his kidneys have been ripped out of his body and draped across his shoulders. This is called taking a dive. Some players like Brazils Neymar go to drama school to Of course, that has its drawagainst Colombia, Neymars back was fractured by a crude tackle. He went down like a tree and started screaming, but it took a few seconds before people realized he hadnt made a particularly spectacu lar dive. To quote my wife, Get up, you big crybaby. Germans dont dive. They cause other people to dive. Germans bulldoze. They bull dozed the Brazilians by a score of 7-1. In American football terms that would be a score of something like 73-3. It was time World Cup champions. The nation went into mourning and the president of Brazil called it a national nightmare, a humiliation. Not all the magic spray in the world could make that one feel better. This is a sports column. Well ... not really. Its a humor column ... about sports. Sort of. As an avid sports fan, I am going to give you all the background info you didnt know about some of the major sports stories burning up the airwaves and cyberspace. Lets start with King James. No, not the guy who did the major authorized version of the Bible. The other King James LeBron James. The former Cleveland Cavalier turned Miami Heat turned Cleveland Cavalier again. Right. Remember when LeBron, arguably the best player in the NBA, got tired of playing for a really awful team the Cava liers and decided to pack his tent and move to South Beach? He did it in a crass display of hubris and commercialism on an ESPN special called The Decision. Well, after narrowly missing out on yet another NBA title, LeBron decided hed had enough of the stunning ocean views, great Cuban food and wildly talented teammates in Miami and went looking for greener pastures. Naturally, he went somewhere there arent any green pastures or anything green at all Cleveland. The town whose river once caught of days. They had to spray water on the water to put out the The Miami Heat have, well, heat. The Cavaliers have a combustible river. Naturally, if I were one of the richest athletes in the world looking for another obstacle to conquer, that would be the place for me. How did LeBron announce his decision? With another ESPN special? No. Instead he called a joint session of Congress. Thats right. Who besides the President of the United States can call a joint session of Congress? Well, King James of course. Who but a King could get Republicans and Democrats to both applaud anything? Okay. Im sorry, I lied. Not even King James could do that. He just announced it over the web. Then Germany won what some people are calling the best World Cup ever. Two billion people watched the Cup, and even the United States What does that mean exact ly that the USA got World Cup fever? Well, in other countries it means that entire cities shut LIKE US ONFACEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION IMPRESS I ONSJim McGauley Increase in city business feeOpening a business in Macclenny got about $25 more expensive last week when city commissioners raised the price of occupational business licenses. Was this the right move for a cashstrapped city in need of millions of dollars in sewer system upgrades? Richard Clark: If they plan on making an extra $25 for business licenses, they are in trouble already since you can count the new businesses on one hand. Roxanne Richards: Down town looks like a ghost town. Great move! Ellis Rhoden: New businesses should have an opportunity and be able to save as a rst time business applicant, not be punished for hoping theyll suc ceed in a new endeavor. Donald Thigpen: This is re ally a joke. Come on Macclenny, yall open your eyes to the fact that this isnt going to cut it. How many new businesses have opened in the past month? How much more will they get maybe $250 a year? I love my home town, but I would not open a business. Floyd Lee Crews: Maybe cut some of the county vehicles and try to keep fuel costs and maintenance cost down. Commissioners are voted in; if youre not happy make sure you vote next time. Im not against Sunday alcohol sales but without any entertainment a big time restaurant would zzle out as well. Joshua Roberts: Dont be late on your water bill. Theres a $25 late fee. Keith Overstreet: No, not a good move. Debt payments for sewer upgrades need to be paid for with user fees or property tax levy. If by tax, you can itemize as a deduction at least. Toni Palmer: Nothing like chasing tax paying business and their tax paying employees out of town. I guess they gure no body will even notice. It is hard enough to start up and especially nance a new business. Why make it even harder? Janet Rigney: Allow alcohol on Sunday to get some real restaurants in here. The old timers will just have to wake up that this is 2014 and maybe then you can pave the dirt roads people live on so their cars dont get ruined when they wash out every time it rains. Dana Crawford-Pulley: If the majority of that increase is going to the sewer system up grade, yes.School gradesBaker County has a new A school in town with Westside Elementary earning its rst A. Both Keller Intermediate and Baker County Middle School remained the same with Keller earning another D and BCMS a B grade. Scores are pending for Baker County High School. The district received another C overall. Katie Rhoden: Westside is the Best Side! I love my job! Faye Combs: Great! Proud of the children and great teachers!

MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD Its a poorly-kept secret in Baker County political circles that things are far from schmoozy in the ranks of the local Repub lican steering committee. Several members, including chairman Kirk Gravelle, have thrown in the towel and the rolls have thinned in recent years as mainstream Republicans walked away from the rift between them and what well call the tea party coalition. One could argue the rift is a microcosm of whats happen ing to the GOP nationwide, is that what happens to the local organization will have little County voter among the nearly 6000 who tag themselves as Republicans. Not so nationally. How the present rift between the es tablishment GOP and the more raucous tea partiers plays out can have a dramatic and the nation. No such chasm as yet exists for the Democrats on the national scene, but it could depending on events in the coming year. The same would be true for the 6000 or so registered members of that party in Baker County. Because what happens at on them, either. In fact, the local Democrat organization virtually van ished from the scene decades ago when the party stopped diverting a portion of qualifying fees to pay stipends to committee members. That coincided with a change in election law that allowed candidates to qualify by petition based on a percentage of voters in a prior election. The money stream dried up, and so did the Democrat Committee. And its demise also coincided with a surge in the number of Baker County residents who did something that would have been unthinkable 50 years ago they registered Republican. Nobody seems to be missing the Democrat Committee, and except for a die hard few who seem to enjoy feuding over issues like sand mining, the workings of their Republi can counterparts have little or Thats not to say Baker a resurrection of a Democrat steering committee, or if the group with the aim of putting the partys interests ahead of personal agendas. The incentive to do so may be a bit diluted because for many of us it makes little difference whether our candidate for county commission or clerk of courts is a Republican or Democrat. School board races are non-partisan, as are judicial races, so it further cal parties. If the GOP ranks here are serious about keeping the local committee active and relevant, its going to take ship one that discourages ideologues pushing their pet agendas above what the committee is supposed to be doing supporting both local and non-local candidates and increasing the presence of the Republican message on the local landscape. Or the committee members course and indulge in internal squabbling. And the rank and will continue to ignore them.He opted for city with ammable riverGOP needs to re-focus committee Democrats would be well-served to revive theirs

The total amount of money the school district was shorted during those years was $1,530,263. Mrs. Richardson said Mr. Harvey was very helpful in solving the funding irregularity and making sure the school district eventually gets reimbursed. I knew something wasnt right, she said. We werent collecting what we budgeted (for property tax revenue). I just assumed that people were not paying their taxes. However, she said she had discussed the matter with officials in other school districts and they werent having this problem. City Manager Phil Rhoden noted that school district officials could have demanded full restitution at once and the city would have been legally obligated to pay the debt. He said he was grateful the city did not have to do that. Mayor Dopson was happy about that, as well, but still not pleased about having an additional expenditure to put in the city budget. We dont like giving back money but we have no choice in this case, the mayor said. Were not giving it back, the city manager cor rected him. Theyre taking it. It really belonged to the schools, so they need it, the mayor said. Mr. Harvey said he regretted the error but assured city leaders that in the future your tax distribution from here on out will be correct. In a parting comment, the tax collector suggested the city put a positive spin on the situation: You got interest-free money for five years. In other business during the July 8 board meet ing commissioners: Voted unanimously to set the 2014-15 prop erty tax rate at 4.3628 mills, up from the present 3.6 mills, to comply with a state law requiring local governments to adopt a proposed tax rate by the first Monday in August. The commissions next board meeting isnt until August 12. Proposed tax rates, once set, cannot be increased but they may be decreased before final budget adoption. City officials agreed the goal is to enter the new fiscal year with the same 3.6 mill rate that the city has maintained for years. We have no intention to raise the rate, Mayor Dopson said. We are fully aware that nobody wants higher taxes. The city manager said a higher rate would only be levied in a worst case scenario. What the ultimate rate ends up being will be determined during upcoming workshops to hammer out a new spending plan for the fiscal year beginning October 1. One mill is equivalent to $1 for every $1,000 of assessed property valuation. The tax bill on a home with an assessed value of $100,000 would be $360 under the current rate or $436 at the tentative rate. Officials said they are facing serious challeng es in the coming year, including a deteriorating sewer system that needs millions of dollars in improvement, badly needed road paving projects, a projected 15 percent increase in health insurance costs and higher law enforcement costs. Gave final approval to an ordinance increasing business permit fees, formerly called occupational license taxes, which will cost most retail business owners about $25 more each year.

Due to the inconsistencies of the information, the deputy placed Mr. Register in handHe found the suspects wallet and properly identified him. gave a false name because he knew about the outstanding warrant. In a similar incident, a Sanderson man was arrested the evening of July 10 on multiple warrants from Duval County after he was pulled over for not wearing a seat belt. Deputy Daryl Mobley stopped Gerraldo Williams, 31, at the intersection of Macclenny Ave. and Second St. and found out the suspect had warrants for failure to pay child support and for an expired drivers license of more than six months. Mr. Williams claimed he pays child support every week through automatic deductions from his employer, according to the report. In other warrant-related arrests: Ransom Barefoot, 23, of Macclenny was arrested the afternoon of July 8 for a domestic battery warrant from Duval County. Vincent Williams, 51, of Glen St. Mary was arrested the afternoon of July 8 on a war rant out of Alachua County for simple assault and obstructing justice.

Keith Padgett Jr., 41, told Deputy Trey McCullough he was at the Southwood Rd. address in the Blackbottom sec tion of the southeast county when an intoxicated Cherry Padgett, 34, burst through a rear door, grabbed the knife and came at him in a threaten ing manner. Also present at the time were Mr. Padgetts son Colton, 20, and four minor children ages six through 11. He told his wifes hand during the altercation and she managed to get it back after he stepped on the residence and Ms. Padgett went into his bedroom and sliced up a pair of pajama pants before running from the trailer and leaving in a vehicle parked in the driveway. Mr. Padgett told Deputy McCullough he had no contact with his wife since an incident in May when she was arrested for aggravated domestic battery on him and domestic battery on the younger Mr. Padgett, who is her step-son. The most recent complaint is for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. In another domestic incident, Micah Morrison, 31, was named in a complaint for allegedly shoving Ida Rowland, 51, and the 12-year-old daugh ter of his girlfriend Crystal Rowland, 31, at a residence on Crews Rd. about noon of July 7. Contacted later by Deputy Johnny Hodges, Mr. Morrison denied the accusations and insisted he was trying to break free and leave the residence following an argument with the girlfriend. She and the others were attempting to prevent him from leaving. The Baker County Code Enforcement Board will allow a Glen St. Mary man 30 days to move a non-complying mobile CR 23B. James Rodgers appeared before the board at its July 14 meeting and said he has had to cation before it is suitable for the move-on. He purchased it recently from Terrance Smith after learning that the code board found him in violation of zoning law limiting dwell ings to one unit per 7.5 acre tract. In the event the unit remains past the 30-day period, Mr. Smith would be liable for an $85 administrative fee, $10 daily for up to a half-year. Mr. Rodgers said he believes he can move the home before that barring heavy rainfall. In other cases found in violation earlier: The board voted to allow Mary Thomas ten days to remove excess refuse from her property on Clarence Dobbs Rd. in Glen or face the adminThe board already granted the survivors of the late Shirley Padgett a month to removed north, and now authorized a $10 a day for a half-year plus the administrative fee.

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR email@example.comLike other Florida counties, Baker County and its respective government bodies benefited from the largess doled out of Tallahassee during the last legislative session, when the state was flush with cash from the economic recovery. But there could be some troubling changes coming down the pike next year, according to the countys veteran capitol lobbyist Chris Doolin, who has 37 years in the business. He presented his recap of the 2014 legislative session and reviewed the issues he believes will be front and center in the next cycle the afternoon of July 15 at the Chamber of Commerce. Perhaps the most relevant to Baker County residents is the pending prohibition of disposing septic tank waste by spreading it on land. The ban, included in springs protection legislation passed in 2010, is set to take effect on January 1, 2016. A bill that would have delayed implementation of the measure failed to pass the legislature this year, however. This is going to be an extremely expensive issue for people with septic tanks, Mr. Doolin told a group of about 20 Chamber members. Roughly four out of five people in Baker County have a septic system, essentially everyone outside the City of Macclenny, which is served by an aging centralized water and sewer system. Mr. Doolin said the cost of disposing septic tank waste is expected to triple if the measure takes effect, because of disposal methods, like drying out and landfilling the waste, is much more expensive. The issue surfaced during the session amid a wave of concern about water resource issues, including the protection of springs, wildlife die-offs in south and central Florida waterways and fights over pollution limits and the water supply. The same issues are expected to play a large role in legislation during the 2015 session, said Mr. Doolin, who mostly represents small county governments. Its evolving and its time, he said of efforts to revamp the states water policies. Im just not sure how were going to do it. Another environmental measure that could impact Baker County and similar small rural counties, according to the lobbyist, is a constitutional amendment for funding hundreds of millions of dollars in land and water conservation projects. He said the so-called Amendment 1 on Novembers ballot will let voters decide whether to spend one-third of the taxes collected on real estate transactions, known as doc stamps, for such projects, estimating the share to be some $658 million. While he applauded the environmental benefits of such a move, he said it would come at the expense of programs that are funded by the same revenue source, including the road improvement grant program designated specifically for small counties. Its known as the Small County Outreach Program, or SCOP. Given that fact, he said hes not a fan of the constitutional amendment. Other measures of interest Mr. Doolin noted during his presentation: The state cut motor vehicle tag and license fees by some $300 million, which equates to a roughly $30 savings on most cars and trucks. Mr. Doolin said the legisla hike of such fees. It corrected the record on the tax increase they voted for, he said. The state passed the largest budget in history at $77.1 billion, up from 74.5 billion last year. The budget cut 37 state jobs, boosted reserves $3oo million, increased general revenue spending by some $1.1 billion, and trust fund spending by $2.5 billion.JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgIf theres ever a train derailment, chemical spill or other disaster with the potential to cause mass casualties or injuries, specialized equipment for first responders to minimize harm is available in short order, particularly in the Macclenny area. Thats what county health department employees learned last week at the city fire departments station off West Lowder Street. In recent years, the city department has been amassing a collection of equipment contained inside the mass decontamination unit trailer and mass casualty incident trailer from the City of Jacksonville, which purchased the gear using grants funds from Department of Homeland Security. Jacksonville has an abundance of this stuff and they want to keep it spread out so all the eggs arent in one basket, explained Lt. Chris Bonds. Its been since 2003 that health department staff, which helped the fire department acquire a hazardous materials re sponse that year, was updated on the more recent acquisitions. They toured the various as firefighters explained how they worked and in what circumstances they would be deployed. The roughly 200-squarefoot decontamination tent is the latest addition to the collection, said Lt. Bonds, arriving about a year and half ago. It can decontaminate a lot of people very quickly, he said. Its expandable for up to four lanes inside which people can undress and place all of their contaminated clothing in a plastic bag, shower with soap and water, put on a sterile disposable suit, and ditch the bag all while being blocked on all sides by shower-curtain-like drapes. The tent can be modified for two lanes one for those who walk under their own power and one for others on stretchers. The latter group can remain semi-covered during decontamination, Lt. Bonds said. The contaminated clothing or other items are directed to large bladder containers that are handled later by specially trained contractors, who then dispose of the soiled materials. Lt. Bonds said the mass decontamination unit, fortunately, has not been deployed as yet. Weve been blessed, he said, adding later, We hope we dont need it, but its good to know weve got it. The equipment purchases were funded by a grant for large urban areas, including Jack sonville. Lt. Bonds said the advantages of spreading out some of the equipment became clear and mutual aid agreements be tween authorities in Jacksonville, the City of Macclenny and surrounding areas facilitate deployment of the equipment regionally as needed. Its ours to use with the agreement that well go to them if they call us, he said.

A criminal complaint for misdemeanor possession JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR email@example.comThe fallout from a software glitch by the tax collectors office continued last week when the Baker County Hospital Authority revised its budget to reflect about $33,000 less in expected revenue due to an error that sent over-payments to various local taxing authorities that should have gone to the school district since 2008. The authoritys board of di rectors decided to make up the loss using funds earmarked for the future medical needs of county residents. The good news is weve got the contingency, said board member Glenn McKendree, who following the July 8 meeting announced his resignation from the board because he moved to Manatee County to be closer to family. The hospital authority repayments during the last five years, said Darryl Register, who serves as the sole staff person for the authority. To correct the mistake, the tax collectors of fice has reduced the amount of money it disperses to local taxing agencies, he explained. The first withholding took place last October when the office cut the amount expected by the hospital authority by about $25,000. The reduction echoed through the authoritys current budget plan as well as the budget its forming for the coming 2014-15 fiscal year. Next year the hit will be about $27,000, then rise during the next two years to about $34,000, before falling to about $30,000 in 2017-18, said Mr. Register. He also pointed out the silver lining that the authority received an unwarranted boost in cash flow. You can look at it as we had five years of money that wasnt ours that we dont have to pay any interest on, said Mr. Register. Still, he said, for the authority to meet its current-year financial obligations it needs about $183,000 on hand be fore the end of the fiscal year on September 30. The sum includes a roughly $175,000 payment to Baker County Medical Services, the nonprofit operating Fraser Hospital under a contract with the authority, as well as attorney and auditor fees. The authoritys checking account, with just under $151,000 in the bank, couldnt cover the bill, however; at least not without a transfer from savings. The authority has about $264,000 in savings thats allocated for the authoritys future medical needs. Mr. Register said since 2010, the authority has been transferring about $85,000 annually to the savings account plus about $25,000 it gets each year from a tax on pari-mutuel gambling. To cover the gap between cash in the checking account and current-year expenses, the board voted 4-0 to transfer the difference about $33,000 from the savings account. Like county commissioners, Mr. Register, who also serves as staff support for the Baker County Development Commission and as executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, was notified of the error by the Tax Collector Gene Harvey in late June, despite the tax collector knowing about it since at least last fall, when disburse ments were slashed. It would have been helpful to known a lot sooner, commented board chairman Todd Ferreira. Looking forward though, the panel tentatively increased its property tax rate by some 20 percent for the coming fiscal year, which starts October 1, to ensure the authority will have enough revenue in the future to meet its legal obligations and handle the surprise revenue reductions from what the tax collectors office says was a software glitch that was fixed in March by replacing the software. The tentative tax rate may be lowered in the future, but it cannot be raised, per state law. Board members described the move as setting a ceiling for the tax rate, noting that its their intention to reduce it if revenue and expense estimates for 2014-15 dont change substantially between now and Septembers two public hearings on the final budget and tax rate. At the proposed tax rate, a property valued at $150,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption, would owe $130 in hospital authority levies. The rate would generate about some $170,000 more than the current year. In other business, the hospital authority received an audit report from its accountant Clay Lyons for the 2012-13 fiscal year. His audit shows the authoritys net assets dropped about $37,000 during that year. The board also heard from Dennis Markos, chief executive officer of Baker County Medical Services, on the current financial condition of the nonprofit organization. He said the value of the orga nization rose about $150,000 of 2013 and May of this year. The year has gone fairly well, said Mr. Markos, add ing that the new Rural Health Clinic opened this year is seeing more patients each month.BCHA has reserves to cover overpaymentLoitering couple had pills and pot Darryl Gris Send payment to Kay Stewart at 16150 Crews Rd., Glen St. Mary, FL. 32040.

The preliminary grade for the whole district also re mained a C, though the high schools grade, to be released in the fall, could alter the districts overall label. But Westside Elementary received its first-ever preliminary school grade this year, and it was a whopper an A-grade. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson explained that a tweak by the state that took effect this year reduced the minimum number of students who needed to demonstrate learn ing gains in both reading and math for a particular school to be eligible for a school grade, from 30 students to 10 stu dents. But because students first take FCAT tests in the third grade, which is the highest grade at the districts two elementary schools, enough of them have to be retained and retested as third graders again the following year for gains to show up. That means that Westside Elementary had at least 10 retained third grade students in both reading and math that had previous third grade FCAT scores and/or third grade Florida Alternate Assessment scores, said the superinten dent. This is the only way a gains score may be obtained. The unusual circumstance may not repeat itself in future years, however. Mrs. Raulerson said Westside may not have enough stu dents retained next year for a school grade to be issued, and the same uncertainty applies to Macclenny Elementary, which did not have the minimum 10 students retained and retested. While the middle school and Keller Intermediate were handed the same school grades they were given last year, both schools improved their numerical scores, a sign of progress in certain areas used to calculate the overall school grade. The middle school improved Mrs. Raulerson said is very exciting and confirms that instructional emphasis at the school, specifically in writing, resulted in an increase of student achievement. Last year, just 42 percent of students passed the writing FCAT compared to 61 percent this year. BCMS, as a B-school for the second year in a row after several years of being labeled an A-school, is on par with about 15 percent of schools statewide with the same grade for 2014. Most middle schools in Florida, schools this year. Kellers score, meanwhile, jumped by 34 points. The superintendent called the change remarkable. Supporting data files for the preliminary grades have not been released to the school district yet, Mrs. Raulerson said, but a very deep data review for all of our schools is forthcom ing to inform future school improvement efforts. Keller reached B-school status for the first time in five until 2010-11 when it dropped to a D-grade for the first time since 2001-02. It is now among 255 elementary schools state wide with the same grade, which is 14 percent of all elementary schools in Florida. In other school news, the annual shifting of leadership at various schools has taken place with a handful of administrators moving into new positions for the 2014-15 school year. They are: Doug Register, who was an assistant principal at Macclen ny Elementary, was moved to the same position at the middle school. Gary Pelham, a middle school assistant principal, will take over a physical education (PE) position at the same school. He requested the transfer, the districts human resources director Robin Mobley said. Lynn Green will move from an elementary instructional coach at Westside to an assistant principal job there. Jamie Johnson, as previously reported by The Press, is replacing the retiring Gail Griffis as principal at Keller. A Macclenny woman was arrested on July 10 for felony child abuse after she admitted to a county deputy that she and a friend smoked marijuana in the presence of her two small children. Peggy Elliot, 21, was interviewed at her apartment in Baker Manor on South 6th St. that evening following a complaint by her livein boyfriend Christopher Reddel, 23, who is also the father of their children ages one and seven weeks. He called the police after smelling marijuana smoke upon entering the unit. Deputy John Minkel said he initially confronted Alyssa Graves, 22, of Macclenny after Mr. Reddel informed him she and a male companion left the apartment about 8 pm and were walking north on Sixth St. Ms. Graves also admitted to smoking pot in the apartment, but said the children were in another room. She admitted to buying the drug earlier and bringing it there. Her male friend was not present and was not charged. Ms. Elliot was then interviewed and said her children were in the living room when she and Ms. Graves smoked the drug from a glass pipe that they then stashed under a mattress. The pipe belonged to Ms. Graves and she was charged with possession of paraphernalia. Mr. Reddel took the children to his mothers in Jacksonville and the incident was reported to the Department of Children and Families.

A potential donor arose after her fathers death in February in the form of a cousin from Missouri she hadnt seen in nearly 40 years. She saw him for the first time in decades at her fathers funeral, and they were confirmed to be a blood match only a few months later. Even though daddys dead, hes still taking care of me, Mrs. Mann said. We wouldnt have been in contact if not for his death. Mrs. Mann was diagnosed with stage-five kidney disease seven years ago, which has left her kidneys functioning at less than 10 percent. As a result of the disease, she also suffers from orthostatic hypertension, a condition where she has high blood pressure when standing, and is anemic. The average lifespan for a person with complete kidney failure is two to five years, she said, but a transplant would allow her to return to many of the activities she used to enjoy. Before her diagnosis, Mrs. Mann loved spending time doing anything outdoors, espe cially on the water fishing and swimming. She was a volunteer with the Baker County Little League and spent four years as the leagues treasurer. Mrs. Mann also loves spending time with her family, but the disease has left her limited with what she can do with hers. It affects every part of your life, Mrs. Mann said. You get really fatigued. It just wears on your family life because you dont feel like doing a lot. She was referred to the Mayo Clinic after diabetes caused her to be dehydrated, and the clinic got the situation under control. Mrs. Mann, who said she is ready for dialysis at any time, was also placed on the clinics kidney transplant list at the be ginning of the year. She posted information about being a donor on Facebook in May and her cousin, James Curtner, reached out to her in a message shortly after asking about how to get tested. She got Mr. Curtner in contact with the Mayo Clinic, which sent him orders to get his blood tested, and the test revealed the two were a blood match. The test came at a perfect time for Mrs. Mann, who is about to become a grandmother for the first time. I was overwhelmed that somebody actually offered that, she said. It gave me a new lease on life because I have a new grandson on the way. I will do anything for my family. Knowing that I have a baby in my life that I can love is overwhelming. Following the match, Mr. Curtner will be coming in August for further testing that includes EKGs, stress tests and kidney function testing, among other examinations. The family is currently trying to raise $3,000 to pay for the aspects of the testing that insurance wont cover. The family raised about $1,200 in the weeks leading up to Mrs. Manns benefit trail ride July 12 at St. Marys Shoals Park through donations and selling raffle tickets. Even though only seven horseback riders showed up for the benefit ride due to poor weather, they raised $300. The low turnout also put the scheduled silent auction on hold. It will now be held on Facebook on the Baker County Virtual Yard Sale site. Mrs. Manns husband, Melvin Mann Jr., is also working with Extreme Outdoors for a gun raffle for $10 a ticket to continue raising money to cover any costs. Finding ways to raise money has been stressful, her family said, but it is well worth it to fund the testing. Weve always been easy going and not asking people for help, so its a different situation to go through, her mother Par Curtner said. In addition to the fund raisers, a donation account has been created at the Vystar Credit Union. Donations can be made to the Holly Mann donation account or by using the account number 7504744500. But not everyone has donated money in the traditional way. She found a mysterious gift of $120 in her familys truck left by an anonymous person, and its moments like those that make her thankful for all the support the community has shown her, she said. Its the little deeds people do to let me know theyre thinking of me means a lot, Mrs. Mann said. I love this town. Thats what a little town is all about. They come together to take care of you.

Page 10 T B C P ursday, July 17, 2014JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgWith hunting season rapidly approaching, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission made several major changes to regulations that run through June 30, 2015, and ers when the seasons begin. The alteration that will most ing turkey season, which starts September 17 for both archery and crossbow, as the daily bag limit on private property has increased to two birds. The season limit for both the fall and spring seasons will stay at two turkeys, and now hunters are able to reach their limit in a single day. The daily limit for turkeys in Wildlife Manage ment Areas (WMA) remains at one, however hunters can harWMAs on the same day. Bobcat hunting season on private lands has also been ex tended by a month statewide and will run from December 1 through March 31. At the Osceola WMA, deer dogs may be trained from October 25 through November 3 in the dog hunt area from a half hour before sunrise to a half hour after sunset. There is also a proposed change to Zone C, which Baker County falls into, regarding Deer Management Units (DMUs). The FCW gathered information on deer popula tion management, antlerless deer take opportunities, antler regulations, bag limits and other deer issues to help design DMU management goals and objectives. The FWC hosted three webinars and eight public meetings throughout Zones B and C, and a summary report will be available later in the summer at myfwc.com/deer. Technical Assistant Group (TAGs), which are made up by members of the public, will review all available public comments and make recommendations on the DMUs within the zones. Normandeau Associates, a third-party vendor, will de velop a summery report to the commission later this summer. Other significant changes have also been made, but they the countys hunters. The most notable of these changes is the boundary line between hunt ing zones A and C has been adjusted. The boundary line used to be State Road 70, but it now southern Florida. The change was made due to the areas deer breeding period being more in line with those in Zone C than A, according to the FWC. When it comes to fishing, there arent any major changes Baker County. There is, howevlarge mouth bass, and only one total length. With these changes in mind, the dates for hunting are as follows: Deer Archery (A): September 13 -October 12, Crossbow (C): September 13 October 12 and October 13 17, Muzzleloading Gun (M): October 18 31, General Gun (D): November 1 January 18.

The three squads rotated playing time as a team would series before sitting one out. The break kept the Cats fresh and it led to one of their best practices of the summer, head coach Tom MacPherson said. Going against two other teams also helped the players get a better understanding of their own concepts as they were each time they stepped on the ent schemes in the same hourand-a-half long period, coach MacPherson said. It was a good chance to go back and forth between concepts. On ent coverages that we liked. It was good for the quarterbacks to see why we like certain things versus certain coverages and see what things will be open and where we want to go. comers stood out during the drills. Incoming freshman Seth Paige continued having a productive summer at wide re ceiver and coach MacPherson is expecting the young player to contribute in the fall. Each time we play he does things a little bit better, he said. Hes been a big part of A nother fresh face who made an impact catching the ball out of the backfield was junior tailback Jarvis Desue, who recently transferred from Bradford County. Desue is a welcome addition to Baker experience to a position that previously lacked it and has a good shot to start, the head coach said. The defense was able to get past its coverage issues and didnt allow many deep passes, which was a problem for the unit in previous drills. The Cats were able to hold Santa Fe and Hamilton County to underneath throws and coach MacPherson pointed out corhis impressive play during the day. With the great practice in Santa Fe behind them, the Cats now turn their attention to the week-long Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp at Stetson University beginning on July 21. At the camp, the linemen will get some time to work on their technique for the first time in months as the squad will take part in more team reps and 11-on-11 drills. The camp will also give the Cats the chance to work on the entire team instead of just focusing on the passing attack. Now we have to try putting it all together, coach MacPherson said. Were going to work on running the ball and defending the run as opposed to all passing game. The Cats will return home for normal practices July 28, and will take part in the High School Media Day at EverBank Field the same day.

She was staked out in front of her familys bail bonds business the morning of July 15, a repeat of her routine from four days before. She didnt want to be bored all summer but she wanted the money to go to charity, explained her father, Vince McDuffie, shortly after two deputy clerks from the courthouse nearby picked up a few refreshments on their break. I wanted to do this for backto-school supplies, said the She plans to donate her proceeds to the school district, which has a school supply drive each year prior to the start of school in August. She was assisted by 7-year-old Asher Jay, who was in charge of dispens ing the lemonade.

Coach Jason Combs 10 and 11-year-old baseball team split its two games on July 12 at the Section 3 tournament in Rockledge. Since each team went 1-1 on the day, the champion was determined by Little Leagues runs allowed ration rule, which is based on runs allowed versus the number of innings played. Unfortunately, Baker County didnt have a good enough runs allowed ratio to be crowned Section 3 champions and the teams tournament season came to a close. While one team has been eliminated from sectionals, the major baseball team is hoping to win the Section 3 championthe right to move on to state. Coach Mitch Canadays team earned a trip to sectionals with a tight 2-1 victory over the hosting Navy Ortega League team July 8 to capture the district crown. Now at sectionals, Baker County will play the loser of the opening game between the District 22 at 1 pm, and then game at 4 pm to determine the sectional champion.

Page16JULY 17, 2014 JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgCoach Fred Matricardis Wildcat baseball A-team remained unbeaten this summer with victories over Fernandina Beach and Oakleaf, while the B-team got back on the winning track after dropping several games. The A-team swept a double by doubling up the Pirates 8-4 out the home team 10-3 in the second. Coach Matricardi said he was impressed with the way his team swung the bat in both games as Zach Rafuse connected with a double and a triple, while Andrew Dehart, Justin Waddell and Dylan Hall all had multiple hits. The doubleheader wins came two days after the Cats defeated visiting Oakleaf 12-5. The boys trailed until midway through the game when they batted around to put together a big scoring rally to take the lead. Jordan Kennedy and Waddell both hit doubles, and Hall blasted a triple and a single during the games. Players the team will count on once the season rolls around have started stepping up, the coach said. He pointed out Dehart, who is taking over for Mikal Flores at catcher, and Waddell are two players who have stood out during the summer and he said he expects big things during their upcoming junior year. Other players who didnt get much playing time last year, such as Boyette and Hall, have also shined during summer play, according to the coach. The guys we expected to play well have had good summers, coach Matricardi said. The Cats arent pushing too hard during the summer, some players as they battle in juries. Kennedy has yet to pitch for the squad and fellow pitcher Garrett Yarborough underwent an elbow procedure that will keep him out of action for six to eight weeks. Corey Adams also had surgery. If the team can remain healthy, coach Matricardi said it will be loaded with talent. If were healthy, we should be pretty good again, he said. If we get everybody healthy it should be some good com petition. Were developing some depth. It could be the best [team] Ive had in the four years Ive been here. The A-team season continued Tuesday with a double header at Clay. The boys will return home for a game against Coastal Prospects July 16 and the following day against Middleburg. Baker Countys summer home schedule concludes July 22 with a doubleheader against Terry Parker. With the A-team rolling, the B-team split a home double header July 14 against Clay. fore pulling out the win in the second one. Preston Sutton pitched well in the win, while Dalton Crews blasted a bases loaded double and Caleb Crews connected with two base hits at the plate. The doubleheader was about a week after the B-team lost 8-7 to Oakleaf. The B-teams summer season ends July 16 with a double header at Clay.
