Now, she wants to provide the same kind of life for her children in Baker County. I just remember what it was like when I was a kid, the enjoyment of it, said Ms. Hale, a single mother of two teenagers. I loved it. But her grandmothers farm was spread out over 55 acres. Ms. Hale only has four acres on Crews Road north of Glen St. Mary, which she bought in January with plans to have a couple of cows, two pigs, 15 goats, one donkey, 35 chickens, 10 turkeys, six guineas and 60 quail. Even after agreeing to exclude the cows and pigs from her plans, however, county zoning officials last week post poned a decision on an application for a special exception to allow agricultural animals on a non-conforming lot. After a public hearing on the evening of October 2, members of the Baker County Land Planning Agency, or LPA, said they want information and advice from the county agricultural extension office, animal control and public health officials before rendering a decision on the request. All the animals are allowed by zoning but its non-conforming to the size of the lot, said County Planner Ed Preston, who also told the board that the development review committee, which includes the health department, offered no adverse comments on the application. See page 4JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comWith less than a month to go before the mid-term elections and early voting set to begin in a few weeks, the remaining hopefuls for school board and clerk of courts are in the home stretch of their respective campaigns. Most of the four candidates, Stacie Harvey and Chuck Brannan in the clerks race and Artie Burnett and Jody Anderson in the school board contest, said they feel good about their chances for victory on November 4 and hope voters turn out in force to make their voices heard. Were just out working everyday, running with our same positive message, said Mr. Brannan, the Republican candidate for the clerks job. A retired sheriffs office in vestigator who resigned from his job with the state to concentrate on campaigning, Mr. Brannan has been raising a lot of money since winning his partys nomination on August 26. Campaign finance records show hes garnered $6,750 in outside contributions, including $5000 from the Baker County Republican Committee, $500 from the Jacksonville law firm Pajcic and Pajcic, PA and $500 from Lake City retiree Don Kennedy since that time. Through late September, when the most recent campaign finance reports were filed, Mr. Brannan had out spent Mrs. Harvery $16,158.97 to $7,578.27, though $5890 of Mr. Brannans total expenditures were his qualifying fee, not direct campaign spending for things like advertising and signs. When asked if he thinks his sizable funding lead $22,696 in monetary contributions in this election cycle versus Mrs. Harveys $8,175 gives him an advantage in the race, Mr. Brannan said he wasnt sure, but that fundraising is an important part of seeking public office.Brannan leads in campaign spendingSee page 5 Motorcycle wreck on I-10 injures coupleA Melbourne, FL couple were injured the morning of October 3 where their 2013 Harley-Davidson motorcycle went out of control and slid into the soggy median of Interstate 10 west of the Sanderson rest area. Richard Romandetti, 59, told FHP Trooper M.L. Orton he was westbound when the steering locked up for unknown reasons and he lost control of the motorcycle as it slid into the median. Passenger Christine Romandetti, 57, was ejected when the bike slid side ways. Mr. Romandetti came to rest lying face down with the motorcycle lying atop his upper body in several inches of water from recent heavy rains. A witness freed him and he was treated at Fraser Hospital. Mrs. Romandetti was own to UF Health Jacksonville. The couples small dog ran from the scene and was last seen entering the woods across the eastbound travel lanes.

Now, with remarkable speed, its grown into a forest, the old fairways indiscernible now as self-seeded pines and hardwoods have tak en over. Pineview Golf Course is now Pineview Forest, and the current group of owners known as Golf View Properties, LLC are at an im passe with a bank on the tracts future as a residential development. One things for certain the golf view is long gone. Managing partner Ron W. Turbeville, a Lake City-based developer, declined comment on the status of an outstanding loan from BB&T, a North Carolina bank holding a $7.65 million mortgage on the property. Thomas R. (Tommy) Rhoden, who heads up a Macclenny real esof what he and other investors intended to name Barber Plantation is murky and reliant on future negotiations with BB&T over the future of that outstanding mortgage. Wed like to develop it but we dont have the funds, he said. We really dont know much of anything until the court tells us what to do. a motion granting BB&T a summary judgment.

He ar gues Florida law already allows marijuana to be used for medical reasons as long as a doctor signs o on it. What do you think about his visit? Are there any questions youd have for him? Richard Clark: All I can say is that anything on this planet that is available to relieve the pain and suering for people with terminal deceases should by provided to them without question. If you took the dollar issue out of the equation, it wouldnt even make the news. Allowing people to suer while a material is available to ease that suering is insane. Amber Raulerson: There are so many horrible deaths being caused in the world by pre scribed drugs. Im beyond annoyed at all of the controversy surrounding cannabis a natural alternative. I have a nephew who has beneted from cannabis during his radiation treat ment. This 4-year-old went from 26 lbs. to over 30lbs. in less than a week after treatment with cannabis began, from not be ing able to keep a crumb down to being able to eat and gaining weight instead of wasting away to nothing. Ive never had a problem with it medically or otherwise. In my opinion, alco hol is a worse substance. Curtis Green: Will he be giv ing out any samples? Teresa King: Will the $800 medical IDs also be available? Join the discussion by searching for The Baker County Press and liking our Facebook page.

Lowder St., Macclenny Were getting a sense in recent days of just how frightened the western world is that into a countries where epi demic normally means pesky breaks rather than a disease that can actually kill otherwise healthy people. Few among us would ever admit it, but as long as deadly diseases like west Africa, we dont pay much attention to them. After blessed with the worlds best disease prevention research and hospitals equipped to handle things that often kill people in the less developed countries. Thanks in large part to advances in disease prevention that originate in the Europe and Asia likewise exist relatively free of onerous outbreaks like the pandemic 1918-19 that claimed 50 million lives worldwide. Yea, it could happen again, but it just doesnt. Its like going hungry; we know millions do elsewhere but assume if someone in America does its because they dont take advantage of multitudinous safety nets. So a sense of fear is begin ning to spread over the more advanced countries of the world, despite assurances from agencies like the Centers of Disease Control in Atlanta that Ebola settles in the human body only via exchange of say the experts, and therefore Maybe so, but then theres the suspicion that the experts may be in err on this critical fact. We realize that government can range from reliable on key information like this, or as in the case of large agencies like the IRS, Justice Department and Veterans Administration, downright deceptive. So, fear over a pandemic virus isnt necessar ily eased just because someone at the CDC makes a pronouncement. Just as air travel shrunk the world, it accelerates the chances that a deadly virus can hop on a plane and land itself in another region in a matter that took months to reach in past centuries. Such was the case with Thomas Duncan, home country to Washington, then onto Dallas where the incubated Ebola virus erupted in his body. He lies in a hosand his presence in Dallas has resulted in widespread panic and anger that he was alIts estimated that the two airplanes Mr. Duncan boardother routes within days. If Ebola is spread by air rather than bodily contact, just the single carrier could wreak out the world. One wants to believe that our medical resources the best in the world will be able to contain this and other viruses as they present themselves in the course of human interaction. And until proven otherwise, thats what we should believe. And its probably wise to parse through what you read and hear from the media. The takeaway up to this point, however, is that we always will be vulnerable to upsetting the sense of secu rity that we all of us in the around ourselves as citizens of the worlds most advanced country. It could happen, we concede. But will it?U.S. has the resources to clip Ebola epidemic-Right?Yeow!! I just took a swig of Faygo Orange drink and had an immediate moment of dj vu. I dont think Ive ever had that brand of orange soda, but I was thirsty and it just happened to be there. Thirst conquered, right? Whoa. It was a blast from the past when I regularly drank Nehi Orange. I dont know if you more; its been replaced by its milder cousins Orange Crush and Sunkist Orange Soda. But as a kid it was a staple of my soda pop diet, along with another drink that has gone the way of the Dodo that would be Fresca. I loved Nehi Orange; it was like drink gulped it, or youd be in big trouble seared down my throat in all its high ocas a kid, Im convinced the inside of my esophagus is cauterized. Nehi Orange is not to be confused with its illegitimate cousin, Nehi Peach. I have had both and there is no comparison. Nehi Orange tastes vaguely orangy, while Nehi Peach tastes like nothing in nature. It certainly doesnt taste like peaches. Im more inclined to think its like the mixture eater or a chain saw. Fresca was another of my favorites. I was in the fourth grade when it came out and my dad was in one of his endless quests to lose weight so he tried it. He hated it; I loved it. It tasted like nothing I can identify, but had that distinctive carbonated kick I liked. Heaven help you if you ever had it go up your nose. I did once and couldnt smell my food for a week. There are other drinks ence that might still be on shelves somewhere. I encountered Big Red the last time I was in Kentucky. I dont know whether you can buy it here but it has a very distinctive taste. Its sort of like a mixture of bubble gum and cinnamon. I drank one once and never wanted to drink another as long as I live. quired taste. You can still buy Yoo Hoo if you look for it hard enough. Yoo Hoo had a very modest popularity during the early 1960s when it was the drink that sponsored New York Yankees baseball. Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra were always pictured with a bottle of Yoo Hoo in their hands. Knowing those guys reputations it was probably spiked. I encountered it during a brief period when I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, the winter home of the Yankees and so Yoo Hoo was everywhere. If youve never had it, its a chocolaty drink that would taste like a Starbucks Mocha Cappuccino if it had eiwhile, not because I liked it, but because I liked Mickey Mantle. A number of other candies that were more. I was a big fan of candy cigarettes. Back then everybody smoked, particularly on television detective shows. I swiped my dads fedora and popped a candy cigarette in the side of my mouth, leaned against the door jamb with one foot up against the door looking cool like Peter Gunn or Sam Spade. Since the hat was eight sizes too big I actually looked completely ridiculous, but I thought I was cool. I was also totally addicted to Necco Wa fers. They were my favorite candy growing only the color of grape or cherry or mint. gether. My favorite color Necco was black, which was licorice and brown, which was supposedly chocolate. I guess Im odd that way because my favorite jellybean color was black. I love licorice. As a kid I liked the taste and also the fact that it turned my teeth black. Two for the price of one. Im sure every generation has a list of extinct sodas and candies as personal favor ites that arent around anymore. Though Faygo cant hold a candle to Nehi Orange, it was a window to the past for me. Come to think of it, if I had held a candle to Nehi Orange it probably would have exploded. The Press reported incorrectly last week that Keller Intermediate Schools new principal David Davis holds a bachelors degree in statistics He has a bachelors in finance and business management from the university as well as a masters degree in educational leadership from Florida A&M.

A few neighbors did, however. There were complaints from three neighbors about the animals and the upkeep of the property, Mr. Preston said. The complaints were that its not enough land, its close to a (school) bus stop, her dogs get out and the goats get their heads stuck in the fence. Nobody appeared at the public hearing to voice any objections, however. Ms. Hale said she already has about 10 baby goats, roughly 15 chickens, three guineas and a donkey that she inher ited from her grandmother. If her request is granted she also plans to buy turkeys and quail. The applicants property is bordered by agricultural lands and was zoned for agricultural use until 2009 when it was rezoned for very low density residential use. Its transitional between residential and agriculture, Mr. Preston said during the hearing. LPA member John Adams asked whether a vote of denial would be depriving her of her legal right to have animals on her property? No, responded County Attorney Rich Komando. There is no legal right. Thats why its non-conform ing, the attorney said. One issue of concern was whether four acres was sufficient grazing ground for two cows and 15 goats. Zoning regulations require one acre for each grazing animal. Ms. Hale, however, said goats are not grazing animals. Instead, she said, goats are considered to be foragers. They eat just about anything. They eat hay, too. Ive done the research, she said. I can have up to 40 goats per acre. Ms. Hale said she wants to be a good neighbor and doesnt plan to own more than 15 goats. She said chicken coops for laying hens and pens for turkeys and quails would be far from the nearest neighboring residence. Eventually, she said, her plans include planting fruits and vegetables and teaching her children how to farm the land and take care of the animals, all of which will be heritage breed livestock and poultry, meaning no chemicals, growth hormones or antibiotics will be used. Were trying to be all organic, said Ms. Hale, who has lived in Baker County for nine years. I just want to create my own food that comes into the house and have the opportunity to teach my kids that they can farm their own animals. Well get our eggs and meat from chickens and turkeys. Each animal will have its own purpose, she said. Some chickens will be free ranging and grown for eating, while others will remain in the coops and lay eggs. The guineas, she said, are meant to keep bugs and snakes out of the yard, while the donkeys job is to pro tect the goats from predators. Heritage breeds are live stock and poultry identified by The Livestock Conservancy, a national nonprofit organization based in North Carolina, as endangered. They are ani mals and birds that once were commonly seen on farms decades ago but have gradually diminished along with family States. According to the organiza tions website, the mission of The Livestock Conservancy revolves around conserving the genetics of nearly 200 livestock and poultry breeds, ensuring their survival and promoting biodiversity in agriculture. Ms. Hales application for a special zoning exception could be reconsidered as early as October 23. In other business last week the LPA board: Granted a request for a special exception to allow a family lot at 11121 King Ruise Road in West Glen Estates, an unrecorded subdivision near Cow Pen Road west of Glen St. Mary. The applicant, Eddie Huggins, requested a special exception to accommodate a 10-acre family lot within a 25.41-acre parcel owned and occupied by his brother since 2004. Mr. Huggins has been living in a separate dwelling on the 10acre parcel since the county granted a family lot application in July. However, a public hearing was not conducted as required in July. Mr. Preston said the oversight was corrected by last weeks board action following a hearing. The countys Land Development Regulations require a special exception to grant a family lot when the parent parcel is in a subdivision. In this case, both parcels meet the 10-acre minimum agricultural zoning code requirement for the area. Approved a request for a small scale land use and zoning change on two parcels totaling 3.06 acres near CR 139 and Claude Harvey Road from agriculture to very low density residential. In a report to the LPA, Mr. Preston recommended approv al of the request, which he said would enable the applicant to merge the two parcels one .88 acres and the other 2.16 acres under one ownership and, thus, become eligible for a family lot. The applicant, Wanda Thorn Davis, said she bought the property in 2006 in the neighborhood I grew up in, and where her elderly father still resides in a small house on the .88-acre site. She plans to move a mobile home onto the property where she and her family will reside. At first, LPA member John Adams expressed reluctance to grant the request because he said changing the zoning from agriculture to residential could set a precedent for that area and make it difficult for the county to deny similar requests in the future. Mr. Preston expressed a different point of view. I dont believe we would be going to an unreasonable precban Growth Area, where we encourage residential growth. Mr. Preston further noted that his office has received no calls from anyone opposed to the rezoning and that most of the surrounding properties are zoned agriculture. The LPA board unanimously recommended approval of the request.

ursday, October 9, 2014 T B C P Page 5We work hard to raise money and we work hard to get votes, so yes, we put an emphasis on that, said Mr. Brannan. But I know people. I have re lationships. Thats how I am able to raise money. We knew it would take money to run. Its a necessary thing you have to do, even though nobody likes doing it. With about five weeks to go before election day, Mr. Bran nan had $6537.03 left in his campaign account compared to $596.73 for Mrs. Harvey, who has also benefited from significant contributions since the primary. She received $500 from Macclenny retiree Mary Finley and $25 from Glen St. Mary businessman Ronald Williams. Still, Ms. Harvey, a Democrat, said shes less concerned about money and more focused on getting out her message that she has some 20 years of experience working in every post within the clerks office and the next logical step in her career is to serve as Clerk of Courts. I think I just have to let people know Im qualified for this job. I dont have a college degree but I know everything about that office, she said. ... Looking good on paper is one thing, but being truly prepared to do the job is another.Burnett outspending Anderson in bid for school boardSchool board candidate Artie Burnett says his cam paign has been going pretty good, but the truth will be told on the fourth [of November]. With help from his family and friends, Mr. Burnett said theyve been working hard trying to talk to as many people as we can. He said constituents have been talking about the more customary things like ways to improve the school system, but hes also heard some apprehension about new standardized tests being rolled out next year. I tell them its just something we have to deal with as we go along, and we have to try our best to understand it, said the first-term incumbent, who has out spent his opponent by $2676.33 through the end of September. Mr. Burnett, a corrections officer, wasnt sure if the ex tra spending will give him an advantage in the race, but said hes been able to stay within the budget he set for the campaign, noting that it was much smaller than those of the remaining clerk candidates. I didnt budget that kind of money, but you never know how much of an impact money has on a race, he said. Still, Mr. Burnetts opponent, Mr. Anderson, a roofing contractor and newcomer to public office, said he intends to ramp up his campaign spending in the final weeks before the election. Mr. Anderson said hes been focusing his efforts on meeting with residents face-to-face because he believes thats a more effective, albeit a more physically demanding, way to cam paign. I think a person likes to see you and talk to you face-to-face rather the just see your name on a sign. People tell me they appreciate me coming by, Mr. Anderson said. Both school board cam paigns have been largely selffunded by the candidates themselves. Like his opponent, Mr. Anderson intends to continue meeting with voters. Im going to try to cover even more neighborhoods. Ill hit the streets carrying signs and advertise, but my main goal is to get to as many houses as I can. Said Mr. Burnett: Im just going to keep doing what Ive been doing going around talking to folks and checking on the campaign signs I have up to make sure theyre still up. Sometimes I find them down on the ground or missing altogether, so Ive been replacing signs, too. Both school board candi dates also said that getting their supporters to the polls will be critical in the election. Mr. Anderson said hes heard on the street that turnout overall may be down while Mr. Burnett thinks the negativity of the governors race could turn voters off. Most people I talk to say theyre not sure who they will vote for and they feel like its two bad choices, said Mr. Burnett. However, so far, 1721 absentee ballots have been sent out for the general election, Supervisor of Elections Nita Crawford said, while there were 1283 absentee ballots cast during the primary, when roughly 44 percent of registered voters cast ballots. Voters are likely more engaged in the general election due to the heated governors race and the three state constitutional amendments to be de cided, including Amendment 2 on medical marijuana. During the last mid-term election in 2010, turnout in Baker County was 58 percent, with 20 percent voting early or by absentee.

The partners, Mr. Rhoden and his son Rock Rhoden, Mr. Turbeville, Tommy Dorman and Todd Knabb, purchased the tracts from Dr. Gary Dopson for $4,280,800 using proceeds from a loan from the former Mercantile Bank. It was assigned in the fall of 2007 to BB&T with a principal balance of just over $5 million. BB&T issued a consolidated note at the same time in the amount of $7,650,000 that came due in three years. All partners were required to grant personal guarantees. The bank declared the loan in default shortly after the maturity date, and the matter lingered in circuit court here until the judgment earlier this year issued against all the partners. An inquiry to Rory Diamond, a Jacksonville attorney who represented BB&T in the judgment petition, as to what direction the bank was likely to take from here went unanswered. Meanwhile, unpaid property taxes on the old golf course are piling up, and the tax collectors ofvarious buyers. The accumulated tax bill so far is near $254,000. Im not at liberty to discuss the situation except to say that both sides are trying to get through some litigation, commented Mr. Rhoden, adding that the project was bereft with problems from the deemed contaminated by the state after years of fertilizer application. About the time the former fairways and tee boxfell out of the housing market, he notes. We borrowed enough for both the purchase and improvement of the property, along with the development, said Mr. Rhoden. On the contami nation, we were caught by surprise no one ever cleaned up a golf course like that. The former Macclenny Golf and Country Club was formed as a corporation with multiple investors in 1965, records kept by the state indicate. The State was in 1980. The second owner was the Pineview corporation partnership owned by Dr. Dopson, along with the late Bobby Dugger and Ray Odom, which upon the death of Mr. Dugger consisted of the golf course and local Chevrolet dealership. Later, Dr. Dopson took control of the dealership and Mr. Odom the golf course. As it presently appears on Macclennys zoning map, Barber Plantation was platted as a dense and frontages between 60-90 feet, and a minimum square footage of 1500 feet.

E XPERIENCE You Can Trust!Political advertisement paid for and approved by Stacie Harvey (D) for Clerk of Courts.Dear Friend,With nearly two decades of service, I have realized the Clerk of Courts O ce is not merely a job with a paycheck, but a passion and service to those in need. Not a job that ends at 5 p.m. but a twenty-four hour a day commitment to you, the citizens. To that, I make to you this pledge; I pledge to you, the citizens of Baker County, I will be accessible to you, if and when the need arises. I pledge to be in the o ce for not only the deputy clerks, should a question arise, but also to the citizens who walk through the doors. I am not a member of various clubs and organizations for the sole purpose that I believe that I should be committed fully to the roles that are most important to me; a wife, a mother, and a deputy clerk. is dedication will not change if elected. During my service as a deputy clerk, I have personally witnessed as technology has changed the face of the Clerks Ofce. Documents were once hand recorded in large and bulky books. Computers brought about printed notices and forms but paper les still remained. Now we stand on the verge of becoming completely paperless, doing away with the need for paper les, making accessibility easier as well as more cost e cient. e state of Florida has urged all Clerks in the state to prepare for this move in the very near future. Over the past couple of years, I have worked alongside deputy clerks from other agencies to help unify the codes used in the tri-county area in preparation for this move. I have spoken with clerks and observed other agencies who have already made this switch. All have given rave reviews. I am not only prepared but also excited to lead Baker County into this new age of technology. It is my vision to follow in the footsteps of our long time Clerk of Courts, Al Fraser, and continue the down home, courteous customer service of yesteryear, while bringing to the Baker County Clerk of Courts o ce state of the art technology that is constantly evolving the courts clerical systems. In closing, with over 19 years of continuous work experience in twelve di erent divisions and a vision to lead the Baker County Clerk of Courts O ce in to the next horizon, I feel I have the Experience at Matters. e Experience You Can Trust. Your consideration and your vote for me would be greatly appreciated. ank you and may God bless!

MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF One week after a familiar school administration official was named the new permanent principal at Keller Intermediate School, the school board honored David Davis in a recognition ceremony Monday night. Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson presented Mr. Davis, formerly the assistant su perintendent of curriculum and instruction, a plaque representing the districts appreciation for his willingness to serve as principal at Keller. She praised him for his long, dedicated service as a classroom teacher, a former school principal, district administra tor and now a principal once again. Mrs. Raulerson said the staff and students at Keller had given Mr. Davis a warm recep tion when he was named the schools new principal during a visit to the campus on September 29. Mr. Davis, an assistant superintendent since 2010, said he was honored by the award and eagerly anticipated continuing his career at Keller. Ill give it my all me and the faculty, he said. I look forward to a lot of great things at Keller. I appreciate the oppor tunity. Its an honor. Its hum bling. A former principal for seven years at the middle school and an assistant principal and dean at the school for the seven years prior, Mr. Davis said when the opening came up he jumped at the opportunity to return to a campus setting. He said he went to the superintendent two or three weeks ago and told her he would like to fill the vacancy left by Jamie Johnson, who took the job at Keller last summer but abruptly resigned in mid-September, citing personal reasons. Mr. Davis originally joined the district in 1987 as a teachers aide before becoming a middle school teacher two years later. He holds a bachelors degree in business and finance from Brigham Young gree in educational leadership Mr. Davis was not the only person to receive a plaque and draw kudos from the school board in a recognition ceremony. High school junior Grace Jones was applauded for her selection as this years recipient of the Hugh Obrian Youth, or HOBY, Leadership award. Ms. Jones, daughter of Baker High teacher Ernie Jones and Bonnie Jones, principal at the pre-Kindergarten center, participated in a conference in Tallahassee in June with other HOBY recipients from more than 70 high schools around the state. They visited the Florida House of Representatives and took part in a mock legislative session that included a debate as to whether public school students in Florida should be required to wear school uniforms. I voted absolutely not! Ms. Jones said. Baker High principal Tom Hill said he couldnt think of a more deserving student for the HOBY honor than Grace Jones. She is absolutely spectacular ... a perfect representative of HOBY, Mr. Hill said. In other business Monday night the school board: Presented a plaque of appreciation to Jonathan Oliff for his 3 years as the boards attorney. He resigned to take a job in the airline industry in Texas. John W. Caven Jr., the boards former attorney for many years, came out of retire ment to fill the vacancy until November 2015. Hes the only one whos been here longer than I have, said Dwight Crews, a school board member for more than two decades. Im glad to have him back.

ursday, October 9, 2014 T B C P Page 10 Lets touch on the topic of consumer debt. The holidays are approaching and Im sure you have noticed that the marketing campaigns are out in full force. Its a bombardment of consumerism. Dont wait! Begin your excessive purchasing now! No money down! Zero percent interest until the next millennium! Research shows that, although consumers have paid down credit card debt in recent years, the average household credit card debt is around $6,800 and expected to surpass $7,000 by years end. Credit card companies and major retailers spend bazillions of dollars on marketing research to use just the right tactics to convince us to buy their products. They know what buttons to push to make us (and especially our children) believe we must have that item, whether its a credit card, new cell phone, or other hot item. And they are extremely good at it. Have you noticed that the products being shoved in our faces are more expensive than they used to be major purchases like cell phones, televi sions, tablets, furniture, and airfare? They can do this because more people are able to buy these things now on the spot thanks to credit cards, store credit and other consumer debt. Notice I didnt say that more people are able to tween being able to buy someand one doesnt. Long gone are the days when those types of products required planning and setting aside money. We now have many purchasing options, most of which involve being indebted to some face less entity. We consumers have to be very, very careful. We need to body but you can decide what one who knows your situation. Most retailers dont care; they just want to make the sale. The best way to guard yourself against the constant advertisements, offers and in-your-face marketing is to plan ahead and inform your budget. We are busy and if not careful we tend to make a decision and pay for it later. Credit card companies know this and cash in on it big time. Simply planning ahead and getting a realistic grasp far to protect you against let ting your spending get the best of you. Well, that and telling your children the magic word: No. But thats an article for another time. There are some methods consumers often use that, on the surface, seem clever. Let me debunk some common misconceptions. MYTH: Zero percent interchase. After all, Im not pay ing any interest! Lets not be fooled into thinking that a furniture store or other major retailer is doing you a favor. Never think that theres not something in it for them, that theyre not going to get you in the end. When you purchase a large item, lets say a couch, on store credit with no money down and zero interest, they almost always build the money theyre losing out on into the price of the item. We are so thrilled about couch that we fail to notice that they bumped up the actual selling price. Gotcha. MYTH: Its completely the balance at the end of the month. While its great if you keep a zero balance on your credit cards, this isnt the smartest way to handle your monthly shows that people who practice this method spend 12-18% more than those paying with cash. You also still remain vulnerable to impulse purchases of things you dont have money for. Theres still the thought in the back of your mind that you could make that purchase that you might not be able to Its a bad habit. I have met with so many people who hold on to their credit cards just in case. Its their adult version of a security blanket. How about pinching pennies for a few months in order to save up some cash. Then start spend ing with cash that you do have and stash away a little extra for emergencies. Rely on yourself at the mercy of a credit card company when that large expense knocks on your door. MYTH: credit and credit cards in or der to maintain my credit score. Oy, I hate this one; it makes my head hurt. The above state ment translates into, I want to stay in debt just in case I want to go into more debt later. That sounds ridiculous, right? It tells me that too many of us are at the mercy of lend ers and credit card companies in order to buy a car, rent an apartment, purchase a house, or make other improvements to our life. Or at least weve always been told we have to be. Stop! This vicious cycle has to end. And guess what? It can end with you. You can do the above things with a low or no credit score. Hint: it has to do with saving your money. For tips on how to do just that, contact me. pendently as a Dave Ramsey Counselor.

An executive with Cener gistic, a 28-year-old company with hundreds of clients coast to coast, promised the board that the deal he proposes would only reap financial benefits to the district. This is an energy conservation program, said Craig Mesenbrink, vice president of marketing in Cenergistics Dallas headquarters. Im not here selling lights, air conditioning equipment, or a control system. Mr. Mesenbrink said Cenergistic has energy management contracts with 1,300 clients, including health care facilities, churches, colleges and univer sities, and school districts from California to Florida, with the heaviest concentrations in Texas, the Midwest and New England. During a nearly 45-minute presentation that ended just prior to the school boards regular 6:30 p.m. meeting, Mr. Mesenbrink handed out a red, white and blue brochure depicting facts, figures and statistics supporting his contention that the school district could not lose any money on the proposed deal. We look for partnerships ... with win-win scenarios, he said. The worst possible scenario is a net profit of zero at the end of the first year. Youre not going to pay any more (for energy) next year than you did this year. In fact, he said, If your savings dont exceed your investment, we will refund the difference. However, he said, its highly unlikely that would happen since Cenergistic has refunded investment money only eight times in our companys history. Included in his colorful brochure was a list of 22 clients in Florida, including 11 school districts, depicting total savings of $211,603,268 since Cenergistic began managing their energy programs. The list included the St. Johns County school district, which supposedly has cut its energy consumption by 45 percent and saved $21,448,897 in the past 52 months. And Baker County is more (energy) efficient than St. Johns County was when we started there, Mr. Mesenbrink told the board. Wakulla County, the client most closely resembling the demographics in Baker County, was listed as having saved $826,493, or 28 percent off its total energy bill, over 21 months. posed agreement, the school district would pay nothing for the first four months. Af terward, the cost would be $11,800 monthly for five years. The first years net savings, after fees, were projected to be nearly $120,000, which is a conservative estimate, Mr. Mesenbrink said. Further, he said, no new equipment or school district personnel would be necessary. So, the fees would be paid out of the school districts energy budget? asked School Board Chairwoman Patricia Weeks. Thats correct, he replied, explaining that there would be no impact on the district budget other than the fees, which would be more than covered by the savings. A consulting team headed by an energy specialist would be assigned to launch and sustain an energy management program, he said, focusing on organizational behavior and a complete analysis of the energy usage and heating, air condi tioning and ventilation systems throughout all Baker County school facilities. Once established, the program would rely on computer software to monitor and manage energy use in all buildings, including controlling humidity and moisture levels and aggressively managing the HVAC systems when the buildings are not normally occupied. Sixty percent of the savings come from your HVAC systems, Mr. Mesenbrink told the board. There was one caveat in the sales pitch, however, and it in volves neighboring Bradford County. The brochure stated: This offer is contingent upon Bak er County School District and Bradford County School District jointly signing contracts within 30 days of one another, with the same start date. This bundling offer enables Cenergistic to efficiently share and allocate resources between both organizations to ensure maximum energy savings at the lowest possible pricing. Mr. Mesenbrink said he had made a similar presentation to the Bradford County School Board two weeks ago and he was awaiting a decision. The proposal would save both districts even more money, he said, by a little bit of cost sharing. The same consulting team and energy specialist would serve both districts simultaneously. If the two districts move quickly the energy management program could be implemented within the next 60 days, he said. After the presentation was completed, board member Dwight Crews, looking a bit like a deer caught in the headlights, said: It looks too good to be true. Mr. Mesenbrink said thats a common reaction whenever he does the sales presentations. He urged the board and Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson to do their homework, research Cenergistics background and contact other school districts in partnerships with the company to inquire about their experience. The superintendent said she would do exactly that. Anytime theres an oppor tunity to save the school district money I want to be open to it, Mrs. Raulerson said. But I want to do some research first and check with some of their other school district partners. But she noted that most of the Florida school districts cited in the presentation are much bigger than Baker County, which could make it difficult to compare the potential savings here with the savings in those larger districts. I always like to compare applies with apples, she said. Asked if she thought all the research she wants to do can be accomplished within the 30to 60-day time frame Mr. Mesenbrink mentioned, Mrs. Rauler son said she will take as long as she needs to reach her decision. I wont be pressured into anything, she said.SCHOOL BOARDPitches energy-saving planRequires pact with Bradford on Interstate 10 in the west county led to felony drug-related arrests the past week, including that of a Macclenny man also charged with driv ing on a license with a dozen past suspensions. he recognized Joshua (J.D.)

He soon learned that passenger Walter Bowers Jr., 49, of Port St. Joe was wanted in Gulf County for failure to pay child support, and when he was taken to jail a half-dozen Xanax pills were found in a small container concealed in his sock. Mr. Bowers was then charged with additional troducing contraband into the jail. Ms. Chandler was issued a warning ticket for the lane violation. Deputy Robert Simpkins arrested Anthony Moore, 44, at his residence on Jerry Circle in north Macclenny early on October 4 for posses sion of a small amount of marijuana. The deputy responded to a second call that morning about 4 a.m. after Mr. Moore again was involved in a disturbance with his brother George, 38, who also lives at the address. The older brother had been warned earlier he would go to jail if the deputy was called back, and he was also charged with disorderly conduct. Charles Thode, 30, of Macclenny was charged in a complaint for misdemeanor posses sion of marijuana after a baggie was found in the console of a 2000 Honda he was driving when stopped by Dep. McCullough the evening of October 5. noting the driver was not wearing a seat belt.

ursday, October 9, 2014 T B C P Page 13JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Florida black bear was taken off the states threatened species list two years ago, which set up a showdown between hunters and conservationists. Now the state is hoping to bring the two sides together to devise the proper way to manage the states largest land mammal. To that end the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has been hosting meetings around the state to gather public input, most recently in Macclenny the evening of September 30. Thats when more than 30 people, mostly male hunters, shared their stories of nuisance black bears who interfere with their sportsmen activities and urged state officials to permit bear hunting in some manner. The practice was banned in 1974 to the dismay of many hunters, including some at the 6:30 p.m. meeting at the Ag Center. They said they travel north to Georgia where the species is not protected, but would rather stay here and invest in Floridas economy rather than go elsewhere. There are between 2500 and 3000 black bears in Florida, compared to several hundred in southern Georgia. Kaitlin Good of the FWC, said in North Florida hunting black bears is typically the major issue while discussions held in South Florida are more about conservation of the animal and expansion of its habitat. She said thats why FWC approved a 120-plus-page man agement plan for the Florida black bear in 2012. The plan divided the state into seven bear management units. All of Baker County falls within the North cludes Duval, Nassau, Columnee and Hamilton counties. The North unit is home to a Florida black bear population estimated to have between 201 and 312 bears and the management plan designates 260 as the minimum target population. The plans goals are to limit conflicts between bears and humans while ensuring the Florida black bear never becomes a threatened species again. Through implementation of the many conservation actions identified in this plan, Floridians can achieve a future that includes bears as a secure and valued wildlife species in our state, executive summary states. By designating the seven units where the bears roam, Ms. Good said, management of the animals can be tailored to the specific needs and desires of the people in the area. In 2013, FWC received 34 calls about black bears from residents of the North unit counties, most of them, 46 percent, regarding bear sightings. The number of calls was up from 2012, when 28 calls came in, but down from 2009 when there were 41 calls. Bears arent getting any bolder since the calls we get have been pretty much the same, said Ms. Good. Last year, 26 percent of the calls were for sick or injured bears, 10 percent were reports of bears in feeders, 7 percent were related to property damage, 5 percent were for bears getting into garbage and 5 percent were reports of bears attacking, threatening to attack or killing another animal. The remaining 1 percent of calls were for bears inside structures. Attendees were invited to join a local stakeholder group that meets quarterly to discuss bear management and conservation. They also met in smaller discussion groups and filled out surveys to supply to FWC personnel with their views. For instance, one discussion group looked at relocating nuisance bears versus euthanizing them. Another was to gauge what attendees are willing to do to reduce negative interactions between bears and people, namely securing trash cans inside sheds or electric fencing to deter bears from approaching homes. The why is really important, Ms. Good told the group before the discussions be gan. We want to know those things. Many of the hunters present argued by allowing regulated hunting of black bears again, the state can reduce the size of the bear population and thus lower the chances of encounters with humans. It would really make a difference, said Troy Starling of Lake Butler. If you look at the numbers, theyre growing. They dont have any natural predators, so without hunting, theres nothing to keep them in check. I know a bunch of people that would buy a bear permit and it would help control the population, added Phillip Crews, owner of Extreme Outdoors in Macclenny. That may be true for Macclenny, but its not that way everywhere. From a purely biological standpoint, we could hunt them. But from a social or societal standpoint, we cant, said Dave Telesco, FWCs bear management coordinator. The input gathered that evening will nonetheless be combined with the comments and surveys at bear management meetings around the state and formalized in a report to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in February. Because of the animals protected status, its illegal to hunt, kill or injure a Florida black bear. Doing so is a third degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in jail or up to a $5000 fine.

Knight finished more than a minute ahead of the second-place swimmer in the boys 500-yard freestyle as he clocked in at 6:04.00. He also easily swam away with the boys 100-yard backstroke (1:11.88). Baker County also had swimmers finish in the top three of six other events.

Its good for our kids to see that kind of environment and competition because thats the level they want to be at, he said. They really showed up and didnt let the nerves get to them. They fought hard. I cant ask for anything better. With the district meet coming up at the end of the month, the BCHS swim team has only a handful of meets left in the season.

Page16OCTOBER 9, 2014 JON SHUMAKE jonshu@live.comThe BCHS Wildcats snapped a three-game losing streak and October 3 with a 42-6 home blowout over the winless Wolfson Wolfpack (0-5, 0-3 in District 3-5A). Jacob Carter threw for two touchdowns and ran for anwith a 42-point outburst before the Wolfpack got on the board in the third quarter. The slopCats (2-4, 1-2 in District 3-5A) to run a simplified offense, with the ball, head coach Tom MacPherson said. I think we went back to basics a little bit, he said. I went back to our bread and butter plays. We ran the ball downhill right at them. When we did throw the ball, we threw playaction passes with seven man protection that gave Jacob the time to throw the ball. Baker County established the run early to help it jump out for more than 100 yards in the opening quarter. Running back Jarvis Desue accounted for about 30 yards on the teams opening drive, which he capped Carter added almost 70 yards on the ground in the quarter with a 41-yard burst and a 15yard scoring run. The ground game opened up the passing attack as Carter for more than 100 yards. He connected with Eugene Farm er in the second quarter and Reggie Givens in the third on touchdown throws of 28 and 10 yards, respectively. Running back Jacob Stalvey also punched the ball into the end zone in the second quarter to give the Cats a 36-0 halftime lead. The defense played well once again and consistently set position. The unit forced three turnovers, including a 75-yard Wolfsons quarterback four times. The defense is getting better, coach MacPherson said. Were starting to figure out our personnel a little bit better. Were starting to allow our guys to pressure a little bit more. We blitzed more in the last two weeks than we had previously. Strong safe ty Blayne Merchants return from a threegame suspension helped the defensive effort. He made an immediate impact with two tackles for losses in the first quarter, one of which was on the Wolfpacks first offensive play of the game. He also added a sack in the second quarter and almost had an interception in the third. Merchants experience as a starter makes him a key component to the Cats young defense, coach MacPherson said. One of the things you got to look at is Blayne Merchant is one of the only returning defensive players we have on the team, he said. Were able to blitz ent coverages where previously with a 10th grader we had to be a little bit more base with what we were doing. Now when Blayne comes back, that makes us able to use a lot of the things on defense we want to use and you can see his speed, strength and aggressive nature make plays in The lopsided win could mark a turning point in the teams season as it came after a strong week of practice. Coach MacPherson said players stepped up and took responsibility for their mistakes, which will help the Cats season. Once you have that accountability, now you know and guys can execute assignments because theyre accountable for their own actions, coach MacPherson said.UPCOMING...

Paxon is fielding a muchimproved team than the ones its had in recent years, Wildcats head coach Tom MacPherson said. The Golden Eagles played Bishop Kenny and Yulee tough in their two district losses, and started the season with a win over an Englewood team that defeated the previously 5-0 Lee Generals last week. The Cats cant let the onesided Wolfson win go to their heads or theyll be in store for a long night Friday, the head coach said. Weve got to nitpick all the little things with our guys and not let them get high on last weeks win, Coach MacPher son said about preparing for Paxon. Our guys will get a little bit upset because we just won a game 42-6 and were probably harping on these little things. those things so we can continue to build and move on. Paxon will mirror what the Cats did against the Wolfpack. The team will try to establish the running game early and give Jacob Carter routine throws to running and passing attack are clicking, they can begin stretchson the Cats will be close to 100 percent health-wise with the return of Seth Paige. The freshman wide receiver will be on injuring his shoulder in the second quarter of the teams Week 1 home loss to St. Augustine. Coach MacPherson expects Paige to be rusty after missing fense will still try feeding him the ball early. Were excited to get him back on offense, coach MacPherson said. I would imagine youll see me put the ball in his hands early. I still think he has the ability to make something explosive happen. Dont be surprised right away if the ball is in his hands in the the ball. A win at Paxon would keep the Cats faint playoff hopes alive, and the team will have to win to even have a chance for the postseason. While every win keeps Baker County also builds the young players mately lead to success beyond this season, coach MacPherson said. I want to win right now for the kids that are here and I want to promote the program for the kids that are here, he said. They deserve a shot to thing to 6-4. In the back of my mind, Im also trying to promote my long term future at this high school, and promote some excitement in the long-term with all of the young kids we got, coach MacPherson added. Were so young that weve got to continue to win and do things so that our kids can see the things that we do can be successful if we do them right. Any success that we have right now is well worth our while not only for wins in the win column but it helps our guys see that what we do works.Paxons squad is improved

JON SHUMAKE jonshu@live.comLady Wildcat softball player Madison Kennedy still has more than two years of high school in front of her, but she has already made her decision on where she wants to play college ball. The sophomore catcher verbally committed to Jackson unofficial visit to the school in late September. She received an invitation for the visit after Jennifer Steeles eye during a camp where she hit multiple home runs and displayed her defensive skills. During the visit, Kennedy received a tour of the campus, talked to administrators, met with university president Tim Cost and spent the night in a dorm with other players. She made her decision to verbally commit to becoming a Dolphin after receiving an almost full scholarship offer from the coach. I really fell in love with the campus, Kennedy said. It was a really good offer that she gave me and I couldnt turn it down. She basically said, I want you to play for me, and I knew thats where I wanted to go when she said that. The young catcher will receive significant playing time for the first time this season after seeing the field sporadically as a freshman while serving as slugger Kylie Holtons backup. Kennedy will take over for Holton, who is now attending the College of Central Florida, behind the plate for the Lady Cats. Kennedy said shes doing well catching-wise, but will need to hit better to fill Holtons shoes. Improving at the plate will also benefit her You have to be a really good hitter for college ball, she said. I want to have a really high batting average. She also has one other goal for her sophomore season: Overcome last seasons heartbreaking playoff loss to Ponte Vedra and bring a state championship home to Baker County.
