The last program in the series, an end of summer party with outdoor games, will be July 29 at 10 am at the library.MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF After learning that the county owed $1.2 million to the school district due to a series of mistakes in the tax collectors office, county commissioners were told last week to prepare for another jolt to the budget this time from the City of Macclenny. Sheriff Joey Dobson delivered the unsettling news, which will adversely affect his departments budget, to commissioners during a budget workshop on the afternoon of July 15. I have been notified that the Macclenny City Commission intends to stop their con tract for additional law enforcement in the city, Sheriff Dobson said. The city manager said they will do that over a five-year pe riod, starting with $161,000 that we would not receive from them this year and he talked about $250,000 (reduction) next year. However, even without city funding the sheriff said he will still have to continue providing law enforcement protection in Macclenny because that is where most of the calls to the Baker County Sheriffs Office originate. We dont have a defense for this, Sheriff Dobson told commissioners. The mayor (Gary Dopson) has always said, We pay county taxes, too. And they do. Theyre entitled to service. According to figures compiled by the sheriffs department, of 46,202 calls to the sheriffs department from July 1, 2013 through July 1 this year, 26,851 came from businesses and residences in Macclenny well over 50 percent of all calls. We keep two deputies in the city all the time, the sheriff said. We cant cut the designated deputies for the city. We have an obligation to do that. His department is short handed as it is, the sheriff said. Sheriffs departments in un incorporated counties statewide have an av erage of 1.7 sworn law enforcement officers for every 1,000 residents, compared with just 1.3 in Baker County. Furthermore, the sheriff said, the citys budget contribution each year has saved the county many dollars that they (city of ficials) have supplemented for law enforcement services that other people in the county receive from their county property taxes. County commissioners saw things differently. Macclenny gets two dedicated deputies but Baxter, Taylor and the City of Glen dont have that, said Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson, suggesting the county needs to look at the city going back to its own police department. Commissioner Gordon Crews also took a dim view of the citys decision. Their residents dont deserve any more protection than the people in Sanderson or Taylor, Mr. Crews said, noting that response times are much faster in Macclenny than in those outlying communities in rural parts of the county. Macclenny property owners pay the same county tax rate, referred to as millage, that everyone else in Baker County pays: 7.2916 mills. That equates to about $7.30 for every $1,000 of assessed property valuation, after deducting homestead exemptions. City residents also pay an additional property tax of 3.6 mills for municipal services such as garbage pickup, a fire and rescue department, road paving, and water and sewer utilities. It is that last category of services that led to the city commissions decision to stop funding law enforcement. The city is facing an estimated $12.7 million in water and sewer upgrades. In 1980, after disbanding the city police department, officials entered into a contract with the sheriffs office agreeing to pay for enhanced coverage, meaning a deputy assigned full time to patrol and respond to calls exclusively in the city. Since then, the annual payment has increased from $125,000 to $686,725 in the current city budget. The sheriff has requested $788,442 in 2014-15, including $30,000 in impact fees and a proposed 3 percent pay raise. On July 16, the day after the sheriff met with county commissioners, City Manager Phil Rhoden said the city is caught in a financial vise and can no longer afford to pay the sheriffs office for services that should be included in the county taxes that city residents pay. We told him (Sheriff Dobson) to plan on $125,000 reduction from their current Sheri Joey Dobson Phil RhodenCity to slash allotment to BCSO See page 2 MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF County commissioners and Tax Collector Gene Harvey exchanged sharp words last week over the issue of $1.2 million in property taxes that a faulty computer program mistakenly sent to the county commission instead of to the school district and now must be repaid. The sensitive issue centered on why commissioners had only recently learned about the tax distribution error, which occurred in the tax collectors office over the past five years, when Mr. Harvey had become aware of it last year. The board should have been notified quicker than we were before we got into our budget process, Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson told Mr. Harvey, who was invited to the July 15 meeting to personally explain what went wrong. Though board members were clearly peeved to discover that the current county budget and annual budgets for the next four years will be adversely affected by the computer mishap, Mr. Harvey offered no apology for what happened. In fact, he suggested they should be grateful because you had these funds for five years due to a computer malfunction that was virtually impossible to detect. We rely so much on com puters to tell us the right thing to do, Mr. Harvey told commissioners, adding that the tax rolls always balanced so he could not have known anything was wrong even though the software program used to distribute property tax revenue went haywire. The software gave too much money to all the other taxing authorities and not enough to the school district, he said. Mr. Harvey said the prob lem began after a state constitutional amendment in 2008 gave Florida property owners a second $25,000 homestead exemption in all taxing jurisdictions except school districts, which were exempt from the additional tax break. For reasons unknown, the computer in the tax collectors office got things backward and a little over $1.5 million in tax money that was supposed to have gone to the school district went instead to the county commission, City of Macclen ny, Baker County Hospital Au thority and the St. Johns River and Suwannee River water See page 4Irked at collector for delay on glitch Yes, there is a free lunch at WestsideMIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Students at Westside Elementary School dont have to worry about bringing any money with them for meals when Baker County schools reopen on August 18. Breakfast and lunch will be available at no charge for every child at Westside for the next four years. The school is one of 4,000 in 11 states nationwide that have met the guidelines for fully subsidized meals under federal legislation approved four years ago, according to a report presented to the school board on the evening of July 7. Cathy Golon, director of nutrition services, told the board that after no schools in Baker County qualified for the program last year, Westside recently received notification that it had met the requirements under the Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy, Hunger Free Act of 2010. Were real excited, Ms. Golon told the board. Were hoping all the elementary schools will be on it in the next five years. Once a school is approved to participate in the program its good for four years, Ms. Golon said, adding that more schools are added each year. Currently, the program is operating in 21 Florida school districts. I think its great for kids and thats what its all about, Ms. Golon said. Children dont have to eat school prepared meals, however. But if they bring their own lunch they have to buy school milk, she said. Benefits of the federally funded program, Ms. Golon said, include the following: More children will receive nutritious meals during the school day. No free and reduced meal applications must be completed for students in qualifying schools. Student meal charges will be eliminated. In lieu of collecting free and reduced price meal applica tions for qualifying schools, the Community Eligibility Provision allows schools meeting eligibility requirements to use information from other means tested programs, such as SupSee page 2 BAck to School Next WEEKEditionEnrollments Bus routes Lunch menus + MoreJust in time for the TAX FREE WEEKEND: August 1st 3rd

The number of students whose families qualify for such programs is multiplied by a factor of 1.6 in June of each year to determine eligibility for 100 percent subsidized meals. Westside was the only school in the county that met the mini mum of 62.5 percent for eligi bility. At this time no other school meets the 62.5 percent minimum of students who are on the list, Ms. Golon said in her report to the school board. Westside Elementary School does meet the criteria for this upcoming school year, and it is our recommendation that we implement CEP at this school. Each year, we will continue to collect the data and analyze it and add schools as they meet the 62.5 percent. She said after the meeting that kindergarten and sixth grade students, when lumped together, are 3.5 percent short of meeting the minimum crite ria. The school board unani mously approved the recommendation, which means all 600 students at Westside will be eligible to receive breakfasts and lunches at no charge for at least the next four years. In other business the board: Renewed several annual agreements with the North East Florida Educational Con sortium (NEFEC) for various services the Palatka-based organization provides to 13 school districts, as well as P.K. Yonge Development Research School and the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. The total cost of NEFEC services which include maintaining financial and student data bases, writing grants, risk management, information technology assistance, purchasing, human resource management and document ar chiving will be $1.67 million in 2014-15, said Marcelle Richardson, the school districts executive director for support services. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson said the cost-tobenefit ratio, however, favors the school district. It is money that is very well spent, the superinten dent said, adding that NEFEC provides a host of services that would cost the district much more to get from different contractors. Received a tentative schedule for review and adoption of the 2014-15 budget and property tax rate. The superintendent said she would present her proposed budget to the board on July 21 at 6 pm following a budget workshop at 4 pm. A public hearing and final approval of the budget is set to begin at 5:15 pm the following week, on July 28. Approved a request for the Baker County High School Wildcat Pride Marching Band to travel to Valdosta, Ga., to participate in the Battle on the Border marching band competition on October 18. The trip will include an overnight stay and a trip to Wild Adventures the next day. From page 1Westside: there is a free lunch at schoolbudget, not from what they requested, Mr. Rhoden said. Both city and county officials are in the process of preparing new budgets for fiscal year 2014-15, which begins October 1. Mr. Rhoden said he hopes that projected revenues will increase enough by next month to allow for a smaller cut in the sheriffs budget to soften the blow on the county. Were not trying to sticker shock them right off the bat, the city manager said. The citys infrastructure needs crumbling roads and underground water and sewer lines must be addressed, he said. Whats forced this is simple economics, he said. Weve got to spend our money where the most critical needs are. We either have to move monies (cut expenses) or raise taxes and I have a board committed to not raising taxes. This has nothing to do with the service thats been delivered. We have a wonderful relationship with the sheriff. Mr. Rhoden said he expects the sheriffs office will continue providing a good service because this is where most of the calls come from. Still, he wishes things could be different. Do we regret that this is impacting the county at a critical time, yes, he said. But we do pay county taxes equivalent to every person in the county. When the issue came up at a city commission meeting the evening of July 8, Mayor Gary Dopson pointed out that the sheriffs budgets have continued to take a larger chunk out of the city budget every year. But it has to end, he said. We pay county taxes and run the city on revenue from city taxes, the mayor said. For police protection were still covered under our county taxes. We want to be fair to the county in how hard we hit them in any one year. But we are to a point where were in serious trouble right now with our infrastructure.Macclenny: will slash allotment to BCSOFrom page 1
Page3JULY 24, 2014 Sometimes its downright tough being a humor columnist. I get a lot of my column fodder from the news and its been funny to write about. How in the world am I supposed to get anything funny from the Ukrainian separatists shooting down a commercial airliner a Malaysian airlin er at that? How could I write or war in the Middle East? Im not that insensitive. But that doesnt stop me from poking fun at all sorts of other items in the news or that I see around me. For example: Last week, a giant hole opened up in the ground in Russia. It was 100 feet wide and nobody knows how deep. The hole is located in Siberia, where all kinds of unexplained things happen. Such as the unexplained event in 1908 when something crashlanded in Siberia leaving a mile-long scrape in the landin a 10-mile radius. Siberians didnt know what happened. Most people think it was a meteor, others a comet and every conspiracy theorist an alien space ship. If I lived in Siberia, one of the coldest places on earth where the term frozen tundra (as in frozen tundra of Lambeau Field) originated, I might consider moving. No one seems able to explain how this hole just opened up in the earth. It isnt like a big sinkhole. Those seem to primarily be attracted to highways and trendy housing de velopments in South Florida the way tornados in Kansas are attracted to trailer parks. Its perfectly round. Scientists cant seem to explain it. I can. I know why this happened but no one has bothered to ask me because I am not a scientist. Its not some secret Russian weapon. Godzilla isnt about the crawl out of the hole and make a beeline for Tokyo. Its much simpler than that. Its all related to the downing of the Malaysian airliner. Notice how I circled around to the thing I claimed I wasnt able to write about? There are plenty of world leaders who are jerks. I wouldnt have enough column inches to list them all. But of all of them, Russian president Vladimir Putin is right up there near the top of the list. The former head of the KGB, the Russian secret service, has done all kinds of awful and shady things. But supplying advanced SAM 11 anti-aircraft missiles to the Ukrainian separatists is in a league all its own. Naturally, some Ukrainian Bubba wanted to see what the shiny red button did when the Boeat 33,000 feet and unleashed a salvo of sophisticated weap onry. Which proves one thing and brings us back to the hole in Siberia. President Vladimir Putin is a such a major A-hole that his body could no longer contain it. There you have it. The obvious answer. Just call me Sherlock Holmes. I was on eBay the other day and noticed an interesting bid. The Brazilian Federacion dSport is selling an entire 23man soccer team, hardly used. The bidding starts at $23 American and concludes in 4 days, 33 minutes. So far, no one has bid on it. In an interesting develop ment there is also a link to Craigs List, where the same federation is selling 12 slightly used soccer stadiums at bargain basement prices. The posting says that they would be great for holding farmers markets, yard sales, family reunions of up to 52,000 people and political rallies. Speaking of political rallies, its hard not to notice that the political season has kicked signs sprouting like weeds on the side of the roads. I like to think of myself as something signs and I have noticed a trend glamour shots. Quite a few of these very expensive signs have smiling glamour shots of the candidate. I would shy away from that if I were a candidate. A smiling glamour shot of me staring out from the road would cause drive away voters. But thats just me. Political season always makes me a little nostalgic about the old days of the signscraper. Remember those? About ten years ago, some intrepid would-be politician de cided that one sign in a single location was not enough. He six signs together so that the six feet tall. Their worried opponent then built their own signscraper. Nonplussed, the original architect added lights to theirs in the political equivalent of an arms race. As a neutral I waited giddily to see what the next improvement would be. Fireworks that shot out at random times? Music and a political announcement from hidden speakers? Unfortunately, since that election weve never seen a repeat of the signscraper. Im disappointed. I thought it was pushing the envelope of politi cal advertising. Ah, the good old days.

MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD We as a newspaper rarely take the time and ink to toot our own horn, but with all the awards and accolades we collected at the Florida Press Associations convention this far weve come. When I joined The Press the start of 2008, just before the banks started collapsing left and right, I didnt really know what to expect from the small rural community Ive come to know so well. I grew up in a small Central Florida town, DeLand, with about the same number of people as Baker County, though the population was much denser. Still I came here with an open mind and felt welcome from the start. We had more competition back then with another weekly newspaper based in Macclenny, The Standard, but it folded the following year. While pleased that I may have had a small part in the papers demise, I do miss the competition. But thats also why Im so proud of and impressed by my colleagues at The Press in the intervening years. We did not sit back and declare victory. We worked on improving our product. We doubled down on our mission to bring readers stories important to them and relevant to their daily lives here in Baker County, whether its a burglary in their neighborhood, the countys budget crunch or a family in crisis who could use the communitys support. I believe it was our focus and resilience on making the newspaper better, even in the face of the Great Recession, and giving readers and advertisers even more bang for their buck year after year, that helped earn us a record number of awards this year, including the second consecutive award for general ex cellence. The volume of the awards place honors and six third place awards catapulted The Press to the top spot among small (circulation of 7000 or less) weekly newspapers in Florida. We were literally voted to be the best small weekly newspaper in the state in 2013. And we have a big golden trophy to prove it. Ive watched as other weekly newspapers in our circulation division took that trophy home year, though. Yet theres another group of people who deserve credit for The Press recent successes you all, our loyal readers and advertisers. We look to readers for help with stories, to be our eyes and ears and to reach out to us when news is happening in their backyard. But our readers keep looking to us, too. They continue to buy our newspaper, even after a price increase and the worst economy since the Great Depression. They continue to subscribe to our online and print edition, in ever increasing numbers. We depend on advertisers as well, and we appreciate their continued trust in our brand and our reputation in the community. Without that support, we could not do what we do that is produce the best small weekly newspaper in Florida!

Mr. Harvey said he had computer experts investigating the funding snafu after receiving a call from a school district official in July 2013 informing him that the district had not been receiving its fair share of tax dollars. After a subsequent review of the computer program affirmed that taxes had been in correctly distributed, the first reimbursements were made in November. The impact on the county was $204,000. When County Manager C.J. Thompson told commission ers during a budget workshop on July 1 that he had just been notified about the issue on May 29, they were angry that they had not been brought into the loop much sooner. They thought $204,000 had been wiped out of the existing budget soon after the 2013-14 fiscal year began on October 1. When Commissioner James Croft continued to press Mr. Harvey for an explanation for why he did not tell the county manager about the error last fall, Mr. Harvey said the financial impact was not as great as they had feared. In fact, he said it was a relatively insignificant amount of money. It was minute in a $27 million budget, Mr. Harvey responded, adding that instead of a $204,000 loss the countys budget sustained a net loss of only $10,706. To back up his point, he distributed a report listing $5,056,962 that the county commission had budgeted for tax revenue in 2013-14 and total tax collections amounting to $5,250,266, or $193,304 more than was anticipated. That, Mr. Harvey said, left only a $10,706 deficit in the budget.Thats not my point, Mr. Croft told Mr. Harvey. To withhold $204,000 (from the county commission) and not let us know about it, its almost like we were an afterthought. It was minute, Mr. Harvey again replied, at one point telling Mr. Croft he was not going to stand up here and argue with you. Mr. Croft replied he was not arguing. He said he was simply asking why the board was not given the information months ago so that it could enter the 2014-15 budget preparations with the knowledge that future expenditures would be greater because of the debt now owed to the school district. We can call it minute but its still over a million dollars that were not going to have over the next few years, Mr. Croft said. Commission Chairman Anderson then brought the discussion to an end, saying the board had other pressing agenda items to address. Weve got to pay that money back, he told Mr. Harvey. We didnt know we borrowed it but we did borrow it. Were not blaming you. But Mr. Harvey acknowl edged that the computer error had occurred in his office and he accepted responsibility for it. It is my fault and its very embarrassing, he said, refer ring to the incident as the single most humiliating experience of his political career. From page 1JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.orgThe malfunctioning software at the Tax Collectors Office thats caused local and regional taxing authorities to reconfigure their current and future budgets got its start back in 1983. Thats when the countys Nick Frilling, who leads the countys IT staff of two, says he wrote the software code himself. And the countys been using it ever since to collect and distribute your tax dollars. Mr. Frilling said the tax collection system software was homegrown and tweaked over the years as needed, and as tax laws changed. Fast forward to 2008, when a constitutional amendment approved by Florida voters added a second $25,0000 tax exemption on homesteaded property for the value between $50,000 to $75,000. For homes with market values of at least $75,000, that upped the full tax exemption to $50,000. However, the law did not extend the additional tax cut to school districts, which should have continued to levy taxes on the market value of property minus only the original $25,000 homestead exemp tion. While the tax collectors office collected the right amount of money, the funds were not redirected to the taxing authorities properly. Thats where the so-called glitch caused some $1.2 million in over payments to the City of Macclenny, Baker Coun ty, Baker County Hospital Authority and the two water management districts essentially all of the taxing authorities in the county except the school district, officials have said. It wasnt until last summer that schools finance chief Marcelle Richardson brought her concerns that the district wasnt getting the amount of revenue it expected given the size of the tax roll and the cur rent property tax rate to the tax collectors office. First she approached a staffer, Barbara Yarborough, and then Mr. Frilling, before Tax Collector Gene Harvey hired an outside consulting team from Orlando to assist in rewriting the softwares code. It was a bigger problem than we thought, said Mr. Frilling. The team from Xerox, which bought a Dallas-based business services and IT consulting company Affiliated Computer Ser vices in 2009, recommended converting to a software program thats been working well in 18 to 20 county tax collector offices in Florida, Mr. Frilling said, adding the cost of the conversion was about $30,000 upfront plus licensing fees. By March of this year, the tax collection system was replaced and functioning properly, according to Mr. Frilling, who said he intends to retire in about four years and the support from the consulting firm will help the county prepare for that eventuality. I was beating my head against the wall, said Mr. Frilling, who took responsibility for the original faulty software. Im disappointed we did not catch it sooner. The over-payments dating back five years will be distributed to the school district dur ing the next five years.Commission: irked at delay on glitch IT chief: Homestead change at root of misdirected tax receipts Serving Baker County for over 35 yearsspecializing in...Real Estate Family Law Personal Injury Hugh D.

He followed the vehicle driven by Christie Stephens, 40, of St. George, GA as it made wide turns onto Linda St., then onto northbound North 6th St. before he stopped her just north of the intersection with SR 228. The driver showed signs of intoxication including slurred speech, watery eyes and had an odor of alcohol about her, scene. Once at county jail, Ms. Stephens blood alcohol level measured .081, slightly above intoxication. She was also ticketed for the lane violations. The next afternoon about 5:35, Deputy Mobley stopped a 2005 Chevrolet pickup Glen St. Mary after a report of a reckless driver. He followed the vehicle east along Woodlawn Rd. to SR 121, and noted it crossed the center line and shoulder lines several times. Mr. Stuhr had similar signs of intoxication, but refused to submit to a breath test after done so twice before, resulting in DUI charges, and had six prior license suspensions. In other arrests, Joseph Reed, 25, of Macclenny was jailed the evening of July 18 for disorderly intoxication after both his parents were unable to calm him during a disturbance on Grissholm St. Deputy Chad Montean was summoned to the area about 10 am by Sandra Watts, Mr. Reeds mother, and his behavior by that time had drawn a crowd of about 20. His father Joe Reed was called to the scene and was unable to control his son. Deputy John Minkel arrested a 15-year-old male at a residence on Woodlawn Rd. the evening of July 15 on a Duval County warrant for failing to appear in court on a charge of lewd and lascivious behavior. a tip the boy was staying at that address.

Journalists from other states served as judges for the contest and evaluated two consecu tive editions from last year for the General Excellence award. This marks the second year The Press captured that coveted award. One judge commented: Ultimately, I was most impressed by The Baker County Press passion for getting the facts, telling the story and trying to present it in as lively a way as possible.First place winnersTop honors went to Managing Editor Joel Addington, photographer Jud Johnson and editorial cartoonist Ed Hall, whose illustration depicting a pair of pants being zipped up, titled Plan A, won first place in the Original Local Editorial Cartoon category. Mr. Johnsons photo of a wheelchair-bound accident victim after he returned home from rehabilitation as friends and family prayed over him took the top prize in the Feature Photo category. Love this photo. Love the emotion captured in it. Love the composition. Love the way it tells a story, wrote a judge. Theres so much happening in this image that I looked at it over and over, trying not to miss anything. Very compelling image. This entry by far moved me the most. Well done! Mr. Johnson also won first place for a portfolio of his photography. Compelling photos that evoke emotion everything a news photo should do, said the judge. Mr. Addington won two first place awards in the Education Reporting and Health, Medical & Science Reporting categories. In the former category, his story about opting out of standardized testing in public schools was called a very informative story revealing a little known fact about the states testing. [The] story also examines the impacts of trying alternatives, a real benefit to the readers. In the latter category, it was a story about an organic whole foods retailer opening up shop in Macclenny. Nice job localizing national health issues and trends. A great read, good reporting and well-written, said the judge.Second and third place awardsThe following entries won second or third place honors at the annual convention in Coral Gables, FL on July 11: Publisher Jim McGauley, columnist Bob Gerard, production manager Jessica Prevatt and Mr. Addington took third place in the Editorial Page category.

Though nobody accepted an invitation to share their experiences with setting up such a group during a commission meeting on the evening of July 1, commissioners tentatively approved a proposed charter and bylaws for a citizens Recreational Advisory Board. The board asked County Manager C.J. Thompson a few weeks ago to invite people from Lake City and other nearby communities that have established similar advisory boards to meet with county commissioners last week to discuss their experiences. Nobody accepted the invitation, however. I tried, but I couldnt get any return calls, Mr. Thompson told the board, suggesting they at least approve the char ter and bylaws. Commissioner James Croft said he would prefer to wait until the board can hear from people who have already expe rienced this. He said the county would be wise to learn from those experiences before going forward. However, the discussion continued for at least another half an hour during which other commissioners and people in the audience, some of whom expressed an interest in serving on the proposed advisory board or at least offering to help in some way, said the process should not be delayed. This is great and it needs to proceed, said Glen Patten, chairman of the countys Land Planning Agency, which serves in an advisory capacity on zoning and land use issues. Start forming that board now and request membership. David Crawford, director of auxiliary services with the Baker County School District, also extended an offer of assistance from School Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson. She asked me to render a helping hand in whatever way the school district can, Mr. Crawford said, noting that the district already partners with several youth organizations involving the use of school athletic fields. Also offering to help was Mitzi Nelson of Macclenny, a former district director of the Florida Recreation and Parks Association. She said many counties and cities in Florida have recreational advisory boards and said it would be helpful to have one in Baker County. Ms. Nelson was the countys recreation director before she took the state post. However, contrary to the commissions previous expression of hope that grants might be available to help fund recre ation improvements, Mrs. Nelson said, There are no grants. About the only way to get help funding new recreational facilities, she said, is to work with our state legislators. The Florida Recreation and Parks Association, according to its website, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and advocacy of the Parks, Recreation and Leisure Services profession. The FRPAs 1,600 members statewide include people who serve on local recreation and park advisory boards; work for federal, state and local parks, recreation and leisure service agencies and other groups with an interest in recreational activities. Before she returned to her seat in the audience, Mrs. Nelson left commissioners with a final comment: Theres more to recreation than ball fields. The same message was given a few weeks ago by the county manager, who said an advisory board should be con cerned not only with athletic facilities but also passive recreation areas, such as nature parks and hiking trails. Sensing the sentiment in the room to not let the momentum stall, the board agreed that the proposed charter and bylaws should be approved, at least in concept. They can always be tweaked later if needed, Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson said during last weeks second recreational workshop. Commissioners made only two changes. Instead of nine members the advisory panel would have 11 members and, at the suggestion of County Attorney Rich Komando, a treasurer was added to the lineup of board officers and language will be added to make sure that all meetings are public. The county manager was instructed to bring back a final document for formal approval at the next board meeting on August 4. Im in agreement. Lets get something started, said Clint Cooper, who coaches girls fast pitch softball in Baker County and has been a vocal advocate for improving county recreational facilities. Well fill it with people. Commissioner Anderson said he was confident 11 slots would easily and quickly be filled with volunteers. For recreation in Baker County, youll get 11 people, he said, noting that interest will spread by word of mouth and, hopefully, in The Press. Commissioner Anderson, who initiated the move to cre ate a recreation advisory board, said the membership should be diverse and represent a wide range of interests, backgrounds and skills. He said the board also should include a member who is not involved in any particular sport. I dont want to see it stacked with people from any particular organization, he said. The proposed Recreation Advisory Board charter includes the following goals: Work with the recreation director, county manager and county commissioners to pro vide, promote and expand recreational facilities, services and activities for the citizens and guests of Baker County. Meet regularly with Baker County citizens, businesses, governmental agencies and groups dedicated to Baker County recreation facilities, services and activities to meet community needs. Coordinate efforts between various recreation services and activities to provide a recre ation calendar of events to be promoted throughout the year. Provide a forum for new recreational endeavors to become part of the Baker County community. Assist in developing, im plementing and monitoring a long-term recreational master plan. eres more to recreation than ball elds.Mitzi NelsonMacclenny residentBAKER COUNTY COMMISSIONTo form 11-member recreation boardNo response from nearby counties on suggestionsJOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR email@example.comThe closing of jails in Folkston, GA and South Florida has led to a surge of federal detainees at the Baker County jail north of Macclenny in recent months. Sheriff Joey Dobson first informed the county commission in early May about the potential rise in inmates at the five-year-old facility on 121 North. The announcement came about a month after reports first sur faced that the 600-bed Glades County jail, after which the facility here was modeled, was losing prisoners from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and couldnt afford to keep its doors open much longer. That combined with the impending closing of a prison in Folkston, which was expected to bring more U.S. Marshals Service prisoners to the county jail, as well as higher numbers of local inmates this year, put the facility operated by the sheriffs office at full capacity in June, inmate counts show. Beginning in May, the average daily population of ICE and Marshals detainees shot up dramatically. The monthly averages this year have ranged from 202 ICE prisoners to 220 such inmates through April, but rose to 255 in May and 258 in June. Similarly, the monthly average counts for Marshals prisoners jumped from the 14-to-16 range through April before hitting 68 in May and 91 in June, when the total average daily population for the facility reached 509. The county jail was built in 2009 after the Baker Correctional De velopment Corporation (BCDC), the nonprofit entity that owns the sheriffs complex property, bonded $45 million to fund construction and startup. To ensure timely repayment of the bonds, the facility needs revenue from the housing of inmates. BCDC officials have said in the past that about 400 prisoners are needed to cover the nonprofits financial obligations. The facility has had on average 416 inmates during this fiscal year that began in October.Other closings ramp up censusof federal inmates ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Meetings Mon., Wed. & Fri. at 8 pm 8981 S.

Bone Senior Pastor MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF After being stalled for two years, partly due to political pressure from both sides in a dispute over sand mining proposals near Macclenny, proposed changes to the countys Land Development Regulations have begun moving forward again in two stages. The first revisions were approved by the Baker County Commission last week. But the bulk of the work lies ahead. Controversial issues, such as mining and other sensitive land use and zoning topics, were referred back to the countys fivemember Land Planning Agency, or LPA, for further review. Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston presented the first package of revisions to the Land Development Regulations, or LDRs, to commissioners during a public hearing on the evening of July 15. They are administrative changes only, Mr. Preston said. There are no policy changes. Changes were made to cor rect typographical errors and misspellings, reorganize existing text, correct references to other documents and agencies, and update the code to include zoning ordinances adopted by the county but never incorporated in the code, Mr. Preston said. The LPA, an appointed volunteer panel that makes land use and planning recommendations to the countys elected commission, recommended approval of the new LDRs in 2012. They have been shelved since May 2013 when commissioners postponed a vote in the midst of a contentious debate between companies that want ed to set up sand mining operations in the county and growing grassroots opposition. But recently the LPA board, which has new members that have joined in the past year or so, has called upon the county commission to act on the proposed LDRs. We are limited in our consideration and support of zon ing regulations, and also the land (use) regulations, by not having the latest recommended criteria, John Adams, who was appointed to the LPA ear lier this year, said at a meeting in May. But it will be a bit longer be fore the entire zoning code is rewritten and adopted. The process will begin at our next LPA meeting in August, Mr. Preston told commissioners last week. The meeting starts at 7 pm on August 28. In addition to mining, the following issues regulated by the county will be presented to the advisory panel for discussion and recommendations: Adult entertainment, gambling, home occupations, mobile homes, noise and the countys sign ordinance. An eighth issue was added to the list after commissioners voted to approve a rezoning of a business surrounded by agricultural lands on CR 229 in a separate public hearing at last weeks board meeting. Hance Jones had requested the rezoning to allow him to re open a convenience store and gas station he had operated for many years on his 8.3-acre homestead until illness forced him to close the store two years ago. The business, classified as a non-conforming use by the county because it did not comply with current zoning regulations, had served the rural neighborhoods south of Sanderson and surrounding areas since 1966 long before the county had adopted a longrange comprehensive plan and LDRs. The zoning code states that once a non-conforming use ceases for more than 90 days it must conform to current land use and zoning regulations. That meant the applicants .23acre business property had to join the same zoning category as surrounding lands, which are restricted to residential and agricultural use with no more than one dwelling for every 7.5 acres. The technicality, however, did not stop commissioners from unanimously approving the commercial rezoning re quest, which was prompted by Commissioner James Croft, who represents rural neighborhoods in western Baker County, including Olustee and Sand erson. The vote came despite a recommendation of denial from Mr. Preston, who said the proposed use would constitute spot zoning. His view also was ignored by the LPA board last month when the advisory panel unanimously voted in favor of the applicant at a public hearing after nobody voiced any objections. The approval came after the LPA boards attorney said the application sought something that clearly is not a permissible use. However, since nobody objected to it the attorney said the board could approve it and then ask the county commission to amend the LDRs to authorize it. Mr. Preston told commissioners that a change in the rules is necessary to avoid further conflicts in the future because a number of stores, some of which are now closed but others still open, are scattered throughout the county on lands not zoned commercial. One possible revision officials are considering is deleting the 90-day rule regarding non-conforming uses, which Mr. Preston said is arbitrary, but is pretty standard in most counties. Mr. Jones said he closed his store two years ago after he had a stroke but that his health has improved and he wanted to re open the business, which he said lots of friends and neighbors had urged him to do for months. Even Mr. Preston said the country store had served a useful purpose by providing neighbors a convenient place to shop and gas up without having to drive miles to Sanderson, Glen St. Mary or Macclenny.MIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF County Manager C.J. Thompson announced to the county commission during a workshop the afternoon of July 15 that he had a bit of good news to share instead of a $2 million projected deficit next year, were down to $1.79 million. The deficit reduction was brought about not by budget cuts, but by anticipated increases in tax revenues, including a 3 percent boost in property taxes due to higher valuations and $477,989 mainly from sales taxes. The county managers proposed budget overview included total revenue of $25,239,642 and total ex penditures of $27,037,785. Commissioners vowed to continue searching for ways to cut expenses, including privatizing the countys Emergency Medical Services department. However, board members agreed that they would only hire a private contractor if county EMS workers would be retained and it would cost less for the service. EMS traditionally has operated at a deficit, requiring general revenue to subsidize the department. During the first nine months of the current budget year EMS fees generated $720,777, but expenditures reached $1,004,149, which left a $283,371 deficit at the end of June. However, the deficit was about $10,000 less than it was a year ago and could be lower by the end of the fiscal year on September 30 if revenues continue to increase as a result of better collection procedures, EMS Director David Richardson told commissioners. We want to continue providing the service at the least cost to taxpayers, Mr. Richardson said. Although 1,900 delinquent claims have been sent to a private collection firm hired last year, only 736 claims have been processed and a mere $3,499 collected in unpaid bills. Hopefully, well come up with some ideas to increase that, Mr. Richardson said. Also at the commission meeting: The boards next meeting date was moved from August 5 to August 4 and a public hearing was scheduled for 6 pm. to set the tentative property tax rate for next year. The first public hearing on a proposed 2014-15 budget was set for September 4, following by a final hearing and adoption on September 16. The current tax rate is roughly $7.30 for every $1,000 of assessed property valuation. The owner of a $150,000 home, after deducting the standard $50,000 homestead exemption, pays $730. Commissioners approved the county managers recommendation to dispose of a trailer at Jonesville Park in Sanderson. The trailer, which at one time was envisioned to become a community center with the involvement of the YMCA, has been vandalized numerous times and has deteriorated over the years. The county manager said he would report back later with a recommendation for disposing of the building. One possibility, he said, is to allow firefighters to set it on fire and then extinguish it for training purposes. The county could also raze it or sell it. Mr. Thompson reported that contracts should be awarded within the next couple of months for site development and construction of a longawaited transportation center that will be oper ated by the Baker County Council on Aging behind the Winn Dixie on South Sixth Street. It looks like were within budget, he said.BAKER COUNTY COMMISSIONLPA to start re-vamp of zoning laws We want to continue providing the service at the least cost to taxpayers.EMS Director David RichardsonCountys projected decit is whittled further to $1.79M Please be advised that the Baker County Board of Commissioners meeting for August 5, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. has been rescheduled for August 4, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Public Notice
Page 8 T B C P ursday, July 24, 2014Glen St. Marys current wacient to operate at break-even, and the sewer rates are so low that a portion of the towns operation is losing money. Those are the conclusions of a consultant who recently took a look at the towns water and sewer charges and concluded they are below what they need to be to plan for future repair and replacement of equipment. Consultant Bob Mearns with the Florida Rural Water Association recommends that Glen should design a new fee additional $12,000 annually for future capital needs, and recommended the town raise rates 5 percent for moderate to high-end users of water and sewer systems. 3 percent increase a year, or you could use the CPI (consumer price index) or the Florida Public Utilities Index, suggested Mr. Mearns. You need to design a way to keep up with increases in materials and equipment you need to keep the system running. At the end of a nearly-hour long workshop the evening of July 15 during which the town at next years proposed budget, the four members of the board present appeared ready to take up the consultants recommendations. Councilman Jack Reneau was absent. Any rate increases would come in the form of an ordinance requiring advertising and a public hearing. Council members favored exempting lower-use customers from the brunt of any increases with a tieredrate system. Mayor Juanice Padgett estimated that 75 percent of the towns 208 water customers fall below the 4000 monthly gallon use level, and their base rate would remain the same. For each additional 1000 gallons, users between 40006000 would pay the same add-on charge of $3. Above that level, though, the higher rate users would see their 1000 additional gallon charge increase by 5 percent. Mr. Mearns estimated the towns annual revenues from water sales would go up from nearly $76,000 to $90,500. Meanwhile, the 56 sewer customers in the core town would see their 1000 gallon add-on rates increase 5 percent if they use above 6000 gallons monthly. Rates below that remain the same. The consultant estimated Glens sewer revenue would jump from $38,000 a year to nearly $42,000. Glens sewer waste is pumped to Macclenny and the town will pay the city this year $23,200 for the service. Mr. Mearns, incidentally, GLEN TOWN COUNCIL NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARINGThe Baker County School District will soon consider a budget for 2014-2015.

The net position (assets over liabilities) is slight ly lower than the previous year. Glen St. Mary gets the greatest portion of its non-utility revenues of $157,498 from the tax on electric bills, which brings in $31,371. Sales tax and telephone tax bring in nearly identical amounts $26,623 and $26,610, respectively. Mr. Lyons characterized the audit overall as a good report and pointed out what is an annual caution that the town should sepa transactions. Mayor Juanice Padgett responded in her comments to the Florida auditor general that duties are segregated as much as possible considering the small size of the town operation. Referring to a second area, the mayor had the same response to a recommendation that the town improve monthly internal controls Glen tapped reservesrecommended Glen cultivate that relationship with its big brother to the east, declaring that small sewer systems are a nightmare. He also suggested that the new ordinance on revised rates be designed so that the council can make decisions on incremental increases to water and sewer rates by resolution rather than by ordinance. The matter is expected to be on the August agenda. Also on that agenda will be proposed budgets for the compresented amended and prowater and sewer departments and the relatively minor impact fee account. She proposed spending $119,905 in 2014-15, which would create an operating surplus with anticipated revenues of $130,815. That is in line with the mayors stated goal last year to hold expenses down to 90% of revenues. The current year amended budget for water and sewer shows nearly $130,000 in revenues and spending at $125,780. In the capacity fee account, the town anticipates only one and three sewer connects to bring in $3500 in fees. Thats when no new homes were built. If that home is built, it will generate a $1500 impact fee for the school system. Similar to the county, Glen has a moratorium on impact fees for new homes.Collecting school suppliesA month-long give back to school drive for school sup plies was launched recently to copal Childrens Services on South 6th St. in Macclenny.

Mobleys squad car, Mr. Taylor told the offi cer he had arrested him a few months prior on an out-ofcounty warrant and charged him with driving with a suspended license. The suspect also said he had a court date coming up to address the issues with his license. Mr. Taylor was informed he was being arrested and given permission to give money he had in his hands over to his 20-year-old sister Dasheria Allen. Just before closing the door of the patrol car, Ms. Allen asked Mr. Taylor about what she should do about the money.

Decorations. Newspaper ads. Businesses, most of them local, are benefiting from the surge in political campaign spending in the months leading up to the August 26 primary election. Together, the 14 candidates on the ballot spent $50,143 through July 4, according to the latest campaign finance records filed with the county elections office. All three candidates that began with the most campaign cash Republican Clerk of Courts candidate Chuck Brannan, GOP county commission hopeful James Bennett and former school superintendent turned school board candidate Paula Barton still have significant funding leads over their re spective opponents. The three candidates have largely selffunded their campaigns. Mr. Brannan has pledged more money to his election bid, $11,300 in all and $3800 in the latest reporting period covering June 21 through July 4, than any other candidate. Ms. Barton, however, has spent the most, $10,047. She added $3000 to her campaign account in the last reporting period. In all, the field of candidates have raised $64,290 through July 4, which is up about $20,000 from the last reporting period that ended June 20. But who had the most cash on hand with roughly 60 days until the primary? Mr. Bennett has raised over $10,000 in total, including $50 from Theresa Rhoden, a nurse and resident of Glen St. Mary. Shes a vocal opponent of sand mining in Baker County and has criticized Mr. Bennets opponent, Adam Giddens, a Republican and incumbent first-term county commissioner, for his lone vote in favor of a sand mining proposal rejected 4-1 by commissioners last summer. The matter remains in the hands of a special magistrate, who has yet to make a recommendation or declare an impasse. Mr. Bennett, a former Florida Department of Transportation staffer who resigned his post to run for public office, also received $100 in support from Bob Hathcox of Macclenny, the countys former building department director who now works for Lake City. As of the last reporting deadline, Mr. Bennett still had $4072 in the bank. By comparison, Mr. Giddens had $2389 left in his campaign account. His latest campaign finance report, covering June 21 through July 4, showed no contributions.School boardMs. Barton has invested much more heavily in her bid to fill the District 3 school board seat also sought by DeAnna RewisMcDuffie, who works for a Jacksonville payroll company owned by Macclenny en trepreneur Mark Broughton. He is developing a zip line park in Sanderson and named Ms. Rewis-McDuffie as the manager. Ms. Rewis-McDuffie has dedicated just 14 percent of the sum her opponent has been drawing on for the Barton campaign. Similarly, at the end of the last reporting period, Ms. Barton had $958 left over while Ms. Rewis-McDuffie had $68. The three-way race for the District 4 school board seat has seen the least in terms of contributions during the lead up to the primary. The totals raised, mostly by from the candidates own pocketbooks, ranged from $1000 to $1595. Paul Scammacca, a Duval County teacher, had the most as of July 4 with $784 un spent, followed by Charlie Artie Burnetts $469 and John Jody Andersons $276. None of their most recent campaign finance reports showed any contributions.Clerk of CourtsMr. Brannan, a retired sheriffs deputy turned program manager for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, leads the crowded field in the race to replace Al Fraser as the countys next Clerk of Courts, at least in terms of money in the bank, with $2280 in reserve at the end of the last reporting period. He upped his campaign account by $3800 in the last period, including contri butions from his father and a Jacksonville law firm Pajcic and Pajcic, PA of $300 and $500, respectively. The Republican is facing fellow GOP candidate Jack Jackie Baker III, whose campaign was boosted by $1000 from his father in law John Kennedy, a retired banker and real estate developer, in the primary. His campaign finance records show he had $567 left over. Among the five candidates vying for the office for the Democrats, fence company owner Kenneth Roberts, a former sheriffs deputy as well, raised the largest sum of the period, $2494, from multiple contributors, including Macclenny pharmacist Jessica Roberts ($580), Ruby Anderson of Orange Park, who works in sales ($200) and farmer Henry Phillips of Lee, FL ($100). But it was Democrat Sally Register, a employee of TD Bank NA, who had the most remaining in her campaign account with $1050. Democrat Stacie Harvey, a deputy clerk of court, has raised the most in her race, $5800, with $352 remaining. Two other deputy clerks in the race, Sherri Dugger and Julie Combs, had $492 and $116, respectively. Ms. Combs benefited from another $1100 during the reporting period $900 from herself and $200 from Mark E. Brinson of Orange Park, who works in construction.

Brittany Hunton, 28, of Baldwin and Shelby Rhoden, 19, of Jacksonville were seen by security attempting to take the items. Ms. Hunton concealed about $78 worth of merchandise while Ms. Rhoden had $27 worth of items. Security told Deputy Clements Leo that some of the items were still in Ms. Rhodens purse. While removing the items belonging to the store, the deputy found a pill bottle containing marijuana. He also found a silver grinder with marijuana in side it. Both women were arrested for shoplifting, while Ms. Rhoden received additional charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. In a similar incident, a Macclenny man was arrested the early morning of July 18 for shoplifting when police found him during a search after recognizing him on surveillance video. Deputy Michael Antonini responded to the Dollar General on Sixth Street in reference to a burglar alarm and found an open door near the back of the building that didnt appear to have any forced entry markings. When an employee arrived, the deputy watched the surveillance footJason Collett, 30, enter through the door that was left open and take groceries and a cap before leaving through the same door. Dep. Antonini and Deputy Chad Montean, who arrived at the scene earlier, searched nearby businesses for Mr. Collett. About 15 minutes later, Trooper Joseph Farley told Dep. Antonini he located the suspect in the Taco Bell parking lot. Dep. the back of Dep. Monteans patrol car so he could In other related incidents: A 16-year-old Macclenny juvenile was named in a criminal complaint the morning of July 18 afing from security. A Walmart security worker told Dep. Leo he saw the teenager concealing the items and asked toward the last point of sale. The teen complied, hicle by the main entrance and exit. Due to company policy, the security guard didnt pursue the suspect, but he noted the vehicles tag number. Dep. Leo used the tag number to locate the suspects address on Ivey St. He spoke with the 16-year-old and his mother, and the teen denied items in the water at Shoals Park because he was scared. Misty Scully, 34, of Macclenny was named in a criminal complaint the afternoon of July 18 for shoplifting and resisting a merchant after she took several items from Walmart without scanning them at self-checkout. Security told Deputy Marc Heath surveillance shows Ms. Scully did not scan a few items before putting them in her cart. She then scanned a pizza and placed it into a bag before attempting to scan another pizza, but when she placed it in the bag she immediately picked it up and placed it in her cart, which is a common move for people shoplifting. The security worker said she did the same action for other items, and when he asked her to return to the store with him, and Ms. Scully told him she didnt have time and left the parking lot in her vehicle. Harriett Jordan, 60, of Glen St. Mary was arrested the evening of July 16 for shoplifting after she was caught putting a bar code from a cheaper item on a more expensive one and paying the lower price while at the self-checkout. Ms. Jordan paid $2.97 for a shirt that was priced at $9.88. She admitted to changing the bar codes because she wanted the shirt but had to buy other items and didnt have the money to get both.JON SHUMAKE email@example.comA Sanderson woman was named in a criminal complaint the afternoon of July 19 for credit card fraud after she withdrew money from her boyfriends bank account without his permission. Victim Joseph Crews told Deputy Marc Heath that Me lissa ONeail, 36, asked if she could borrow his debit card on July 17 to buy groceries. Mr. Crews gave the suspect, who he had been dating for about three months, his Vystar debit card and pin number to make the purchases. He told the ofon his bank statement to any grocery stores, but $300 was withdrawn from his account the night Ms. ONeail used the card. Mr. Crews said he didnt authorize her to withdraw money, and Ms. ONeail put his card back in his wallet without his knowledge. Dep. Heath was unable to locate Ms. ONeail for questioning. In another incident, police responded to an Olustee residence the morning of July 19 in reference to a theft of a fourwheeler the previous day.

She thinks the theft happened before she got home July 18. Dep. Kiser noticed the dirt near where the four-wheeler was kept was swept so no footprints would be visible. The ATV is worth $3500 and has red and white plastic fenders and a slight lift. In another theft, Daniel Bryant of Glen St. Mary noticed July 14 that a welding lead valued at about $300 was missing from his back porch. He told Dep.
