The Lady Seminoles captured the 2018 NCAA National Championship by sweeping Washington in the Womens College World Series Championship Series in Oklahoma City. The wins 1-0 on June 4 and 8-3 the following night secured the 10th Womens College World Series appearance. Its just an amazing feeling. Its championship] and to play for a team to accomplish that, said Kennedy, a redshirt player who also served as the bullpen catcher. It takes a lot of amazing to be a part of that. Florida State players stormed the ing win. The players dog-piled in the smiling faces.

Keshawn Griffin, 18, was charged Keshawn Grin after a monthlong investigation that included placing a wire on a fellow inmate and setting up a fake meeting with someone who claimed he could pull off the plot against Judge James Colaw and Detective Thomas Dyal. Judge Colaw on April 10 ordered the immediate across his throat in the direction of witness and confidential informant Charles Hadley during testimony in the trial of Reginald Keith. Judge Colaw ordered him to serve six months for contempt of court. Detective Robert Sim kins said he received a tip on May 1 about a fellow inmate who claimed to overhear the suspect say he was arranging a $5000 hit on the judge by an acquaintance he knew as Reggie. The source agreed to cooperate and he was placed with a recording wire in the BCSO maintenance shop where Mr. Griffin was a trustee. He allegedly again talked about the plan, this time adding he intended to also target Det. Dyal and fellow narcotics investiga tor Ricky Crews. He claimed also that he had a source from Lake City, and that he wanted to kill another person for setting up his mother. Det. Simpkins said on May 18 the informant was placed in the same cell as See page 3 See page 2 See page 2 MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF After getting past some initial confusion about an application for an exemption to subdivision regulations to facilitate two new housing developments encompassing 234 acres in northern Baker County, the county commission last week granted the request. The countys consent means Raydient LLC, a real estate development subsidiary of Rayonier Inc., can proceed with plans to develop two large tracts of agriculture-zoned land, one between CR 229 North and Leon Dopson Road and the other fronting on CR 127 North. Brandi Volz, acting as agent for Rayonier, told commissioners that the company plans to develop residential lots of at least 5 to 10 acres each and larg er on a 106.7-acre parcel called Cobb Creek North and on a second parcel of some 127.7 acres named Calkins Creek. Neither subdivision will have interior paved roads because all lots will front on a county-maintained dirt road or on a paved county road. The decision to approve the proposed developments, however, didnt come quickly because commissioners were puz zled at first about the purpose of the application. Whats the exemption for? asked Commissioner James Bennett. Is it the size of the lots or is it an exemption from being on a paved road? What is the basis for the exemption re 229 229 127 124 124 127 Earlis Harvey Rd. Leon Dopson Rd.Hamp Register Rd.Turner Cemetery Rd.

I just want to know what it is were getting an exemption from. Not being on a paved road, replied Ms. Volz. But then county attorney Rich Komando pointed out that land development regulations allow 10-acre lots to be developed on dirt roads as long as they are owned and maintained by the coun ty. If it can be done, then, why is there an exemption (being sought)? asked Com missioner James Croft. Thats what Im asking for, said Bennett. Whats generating an exemption? Thats what Im trying to understand. Ms. Volz didnt seem to have a firm grasp on the reason, either, other than that it was prepared by the countys former director of community development, Chris Milton, at the request of Raydient LLC. Were following the rules what Chris said to do, she said, adding moments later that the 5-acre parcels comply with the countys requirement for being on a paved road and the 10-acre parcels are allowed on county-maintained dirt roads without an exemption. We just came here to make sure everything was done right and we were following all the rules, she said. A little further in the discussion, the county attorney, who had been reviewing land development regulations during the meeting, resolved the situation when he stated that tracts containing less than 10 lots must obtain an exemption from subdivision platting rules. Both properties fell below the threshold: Cobb Creek North with just eight lots ranging in size from at least 5 acres to 30-plus acres and Calkins Creek with nine lots of varying sizes from 5.1 acres to 31.1 acres. At that, the mystery was solved and commissioners proceeded to approve the exemptions unanimously, with one final suggestion from Commissioner Bennett. I would strongly encourage you to use joint-use driveways when you can, he told Ms. Volz. On these rural roads out here the fewer driveways along the roadway the safer its going to be, not only for the drivers but also for those accessing the road from the driveways Ms. Volz said she would convey the commissioners suggestion. Commissioner Bennett then asked her to relay another suggestion, as well, related to the inability of the county to negotiate easements needed to build the long-awaited Midpoint Parkway through Rayonier land east of Macclenny. I hope this message is relayed to the real estate division at Rayonier, he said. This board tonight took action to work as partners with Rayonier. I expect the same thing in return from Rayonier as partners. So far, we have a development in this county that weve been working on for some time that provides opportunities for economic de velopment, more specifically its Midpoint Parkway. So far, we have not had a very good or positive response from Rayonier on working with us for the small amount of real estate that we need in order to build Midpoint Parkway. Theyre making us jump through hoops now in order for us to try to proceed. As a final comment, he said the continued relationship with Rayonier as partners has got to be more than one-sided. Ms. Volz said changes in corporate leadership have occurred through retirements of people who were very friendly to Baker County, and that she would relay the commissioners comments to their successors. In other business last week, commissioners: Awarded a contract to Little and Williams, a general contracting firm in Lake City, to complete the Phase IV repairs to the Baker County Historic Jail as part of a long-term restoration project. The scope of work to be performed includes electrical upgrades, doorways and railings. The estimated project cost is $45,000 and is funded through a $50,000 state historic preservation grant. To date, $4257 has been spent on architecture/ engineering costs, leaving a balance of $45,742. Awarded a $33,600 contract to Jani-King of Jacksonville for janitorial maintenance services and supplies for the Bake County courthouse and public defenders office. Previously, janitorial services were done by county employees. However, after the resignation of janitorial staff the decision was made to outsource the services, said County Manager Kennie Downing, noting that the contract with Jani-King will be for one year with two annual extensions. Awarded contracts to Duval Asphalt Products, Inc. totaling $98,873 for the resurfacing of Ray Phillips Road, George Hodges Road and Wolfe Drive. However, the county will pay only for Ray Phillips and George Hodges roads because the Wolfe Drive project cost of $22,470 will be funded by Baker & Lee Properties Inc. Approved the appointment of Alicia Lamborn as the countys new county extension director at the agricultural center following her service as an acting director for the past year. Her $71,000 salary will be shared by the county ($28,400) and the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Science ($42,600).

But Florida State had to make it to the Womens The team lost its opening game in the double-elimination bracket 7-4 to UCLA on May 31. The Lady Bruins scored six runs in the sixth inning to steal the win and put Kennedys team on the brink of elimination. Overcoming the odds was nothing new, however, for the Lady Seminoles, who were dubbed the Cardiac Kids for their penchant for dramatic victories. The team trailed in every game en route to winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, and then the best-of-three Super Regionals series against LSU. Florida State rebounded with two wins over LSU in a doubleheader on May 26, including an 8-5, 11-inning marathon in the early game, to qualify for the Womens College World Series. With that experience behind them, Kennedy knew the team had the potential to continue in the tournament despite the disappointing loss to UCLA. Honestly we werent even worried, said Kenne dy, who was also a member softball state championship team in 2015. We knew we had a lot of games ahead of us we had to work through. I wasnt nervous at all. I knew we were prepared. ... We have a mentality of when your backs against the wall you have no other choice but to win, she added. Thats how we played. And thats exactly what they did. Florida State won four straight elimination games during a pair of doubleheaders on June 2 and 3. The program staved off elimination with a 7-2 win over Georgia and a 4-1 victory over top-ranked Ore gon on June 2. The Lady Seminoles then avenged their loss to UCLA with a pair of wins 3-1 and 12-6 over the Lady Bruins to advance to the champion It was very tiring even for us in the dugout, Kennedy said. When youre in the game and in the moment nothing else matters but giving 100 percent and doing everything you can. Anna Shelnutt hit a sixth-inning solo home run and Meghan King threw a five-hit shutout to lift the Lady Noles over Washing championship series. Kennedy said the team was connational title after taking It was very relieving begame in the eliminations, she said. ... It was very re lieving to know we beat this team once and we can come back out here and do it again. But Florida State found itself behind once again in the second game before it even had a chance to bat. Washington took an ear ly 3-0 lead in the top of the the Lady Huskies from scoring again. Shelnutt hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the deficit, and Elizabeth Mason hit the go-ahead two-run single in the second inning. The team added to its lead with another run in the second inning and three more in the fourth. I want to say once we were ahead 8-3 we pretty much knew we was going to win, Kennedy said. Anything can happen and you have to keep playing up until the last inning ... Once we got to that point thought we had this. All eight sessions at the Womens College World Se ries were sold out ahead of time, and an average crowd of 8511 attended each session, reported John McK elvey of CHNI Sports Okla homa. The largest crowd of 9381 attended session 4, which featured Florida State topping Oregon and Oklahoma beating Florida, he wrote. Players also signed autographs for fans in between games. It was amazing, Kenne dy said of the atmosphere. ... It was crazy insane to see amount of people there that just love the game. With one championship already to her name at the collegiate level, she hopes to continue the success as her career progresses. Im just super glad I was able to accomplish of college, Kennedy said.

ursday, June 14, 2018 T B C P Page 3MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF A land planning and development consultant in Jacksonville started work this week as Baker Countys acting community development director on a part-time basis following the county commissions approval at the county managers request last week. Susan L. Fraser, who held similar permanent positions for many years in Clay County during that countys tremendous growth boom in the 1980s and 1990s, began her new job Monday eager to get started. I look forward to it, said Ms. Fraser, president of SLF Consulting, Inc., Monday afternoon. Its a great first day. The drive out I-10 wasnt bad. In a letter to County Manager Kennie Downing on June 4, in which she offered her services as acting community development director, Ms. Fraser touted a career spanning more than 30 years including chief planner and planning director for Clay County from 19891999, senior planning man ager for a national transportation planning firm and, for the past 15 years, represent ing private clients for devel opment of property ranging from 8,000 acres to less than one acre. I have experience in the review of site plans and application of local government land development regula tions as a local government staff person and as a private developer consultant, she said in the letter. My understanding of site planning is built on 25 years of experience as a landscape architect, local government positions and my current role representing private clients. Her work as a landscape architect, Ms. Fraser said, has enabled her to work with applicants to determine appropriate modifications to submitted plans to meet the code or minimize the scope of requests for an exception. In addition to an impressive resume, Ms. Fraser was endorsed at the June 5 commission meeting by coun ty attorney Rich Komando, whose law partners in Clay County have known Ms. Fraser for many years dating back to her time running the planning and zoning department in that county and her involvement in numerous large-scale developments of regional impact. Commissioners authorized the county manager to hire Ms. Fraser on June 5 until a permanent director can be found to replace former community development director Chris Milton, who resigned last month to take a job in the private sector. The first job postings for the vacancy attracted three applicants, two of whom withdrew from the running and left only one candidate to be interviewed on May 21. Ms. Downing was granted additional time to advertise the opening in a broader search in an effort to reach a greater number of candidates, a process that she estimated could take several months. We need to move forward with finding a permanent director as soon as we can, said Commissioner James Bennett after moving for the approval of the county managers request. Ms. Fraser will work two eight-hour days per week at a rate of $100 an hour, which will include travel time to and from Baker County. Although she will not charge for mileage during her commutes on work days, Ms. Fraser said she will bill the county for traveling 54 miles to attend Land Planning Agency meetings or county commission meetings at a rate of $29.43 per trip. On Monday afternoon Ms. Fraser said her experience in Clay County, during an era of bustling change that transformed former ag ricultural land into shopping centers, residential subdivisions and industrial parks, should prove helpful as she begins the new task of reviewing zoning requests and applications for new developments in Baker. I think that there are opportunities for me to share some of those experiences that Clay County went through, she said. She said she anticipates looking through the entire Baker County zoning code, which she started reading Monday, to see if there are any changes she may want to recommend similar to improvements she helped direct in Clay Countys planning and zoning regulations as that county struggled to keep up with growing pains. She also served as consultant planner for the Town of Orange Park for two years and filled a similar role for the City of Keystone Heights for more than a decade, during which she said she had worked with senior staff and the administration of each (municipality) to recommend amendments to comprehensive plan policies and land development regulations to match the goals of these local governments. Right now, though, shes just learning her way around Baker Countys communi ty development department and getting introduced to coworkers and office policies and procedures. Im just getting my feet wet, she said Monday. The goal is to kind of keep the paper (zoning applications and ongoing revisions to land development regulations) mov ing. So far, Ms. Fraser said, shes been impressed. Everything Ive seen looks great, she said. The record keeping is wonderful. I expect to be here Wednesday (June 13) to begin look ing at applications. Ms. Fraser said shell probably introduce herself to the county commission at the June 19 board meeting, just two days before her first appearance as acting director at a tentatively scheduled June 21 meeting of the countys Land Planning Agen cy (LPA), a citizen advisory panel that reviews land development and zoning applications. In her letter to the coun ty manager Ms. Fraser offered to immediately begin reviewing applications pending before the LPA so that she can present findings and recommendations at its monthly meetings and before the county commission in zoning hearings at 6 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month.BAKER COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD BAKER COUNTY COMMISSION I think that there are opportunities for me to share some of those experiences that Clay County went through.-Consultant Susan L.

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comWhen students return to the Baker County High School in August theyll be under the watchful eye of a roughly $33,000 video surveillance system. The school board approved Mac clenny-based SETELs bid to install and maintain the system on June 4 at the recommendation of Wayne Howell, the school districts network specialist. SETEL was the only bidder to respond to the request for proposals (RFP) issued in April for the surveillance system. It will include cameras connected to a network that can record and store up to 192 terabytes of video. The company also pledged to respond service calls within 15 minutes during normal business hours and within 30 minutes after hours. Its technicians are on call 24/7. The surveillance system has a three-year warranty on the equipment and installation. The school board also awarded SETEL three other contracts for Internet connections, two per school. It beat out Macclenny-based NEFCOM on two of the contracts and NEFCOMs bid on the third, for internet acdidnt attend a pre-bid meeting, said Mr. Howell early this week. SETEL bid was $2088 per month for 1.5 gigabytes of internet bandwidth, up from 300 megabytes, the capacity needed to meet the state-mandated 100 ki lobytes per second per student require ment. The monthly cost, however, is eligible for a deep discount through a federal program that covers 90 percent of the cost. The eligibility stems from the countys high poverty rate.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, June 14, 2018MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF After being exempt from paying a yearly assessment for county fire protection for three decades, Glen St. Mary residents soon may have to factor in the added expense in their household budgets. If the town council agrees to participate in the countys annual fire assessment, currently $30.50 but soon expected to jump to about $77 on residential parcels, the new fee would be included on 2019 tax bills to help fund future upgrades in the all-volunteer Baker County Fire Department, including the addition of professional firefighters and new stations in Sanderson, Glen St. Mary and Cuyler. During a June 7 workshop meeting four council members met with County Manager Kennie Downing to discuss the assessment proposal and at least two of them were supportive as the measure heads for a vote at the next regular council meeting on June 19. I commend the county on what theyve been doing, said Mayor Juanice Padgett referring to a citizen-led Fire-EMS Vision Committees call for higher assessments to fund a 10-year plan for improvements, including new trucks and merging the now separate fire and emergency medical services programs and relying on volunteers to supplement paid, full-time firefighters for the first time. The vision plan calls for increasing the fire department budget from about $216,000 currently to nearly $762,000 next year to build a new fire-EMS station in Sanderson and hire two fire fighter/paramedics to staff it, buy new equipment and hire a new chief to oversee the combined departments after EMS Director David Richardson retires in May, 2019. The biggest jump will be in the first year, said Ms. Downing, pointing to projected increases in residen tial fire assessment rates up to nearly $108 a year by 2023. Rates for non-residen tial structures will continue to be based on square footage and will increase significantly starting next year. The county manager said years ago the fire department had plenty of volunteers but the numbers have dwindled from about 100 people down to about 20, mainly due to increased firefighter training requirements that have put increasingly demanding burdens on volunteers. Not only that, she said, but county fire stations today are too small to even house modern fire trucks in indoor bays. The revised fee structure for assessments was prepared by consultants based on a computer model using calls for service methodology that has been upheld by the Florida Supreme Court as legally valid charges, the county manager told the town council. All this analysis is legally defensible, based on a logical, legal and reasonable formula, Ms. Downing said during her presentation. She further stated that if the town council chose not to adopt a resolution passing on the assessments to property owners some other form of payment would have to be made to the county for continued fire protection. The countys probably going to charge Glen St. Mary anyway. Somehow, thats going to have to be paid, the county manager said, estimating the assessment impact on the town probably would be around $70,000 a year. Glen St. Mary was exempt from assessments when they were enacted by the county commission in 1987 because the town provided a fire station, built with prison inmate labor, and a fire truck. But after 31 years without paying a dime to help fund the county fire department the Fire-EMS Vision Committee and county consultants say its time Glen St. Mary starts paying its fair share of the cost. Council member Dickie Foster was the only board member to voice strenuous objections to paying the assessment, which he said he felt was being forced down our throats. He said many residents in Glen St. Mary, already facing the prospect of higher sewer rates, are elderly and on fixed incomes and could not afford another $77 big tax increase. Theyre going to raise cain. But this fire department needs to be upgraded, interjected the mayor, adding moments later that poor people in the county have been paying the assessment for years and the town of Glen St. Mary has gotten a pass. Lending support to the countys position was coun cil member Amanda Hodges, who believes all citizens will benefit from a better equipped and staffed fire department. If our citizens are not chipping in every year theyre going to have to pay one way or another, she said. I think everybody needs fire service and they need to know thats something you pay for. Although Mayor Padgett said she had informally talked with Macclenny officials about what it would take to get the city to provide fire and rescue service in Glen St. Mary no effort has been made to formalize any such arrangement, which likely leaves the town with only one immediate choice. So, our option is to opt in or opt out, the mayor said of the fire assessment proposal. Ill have it on the (June 19) agenda. County commissioners have elected to maintain all existing fee exemptions for government-owned properties, vacant agricultural properties, churches and tax-exempt nonprofits and charitable organizations. Also, fee discounts will be continued for senior citizens, those on disability, hunt camps and the indigent. Consultants have told the county that projected rates, which were based on current population data, would be lower as the county grows and the total amount of assessments increases, thus bringing down the rate that all property owners pay.GLEN TOWN COUNCIL 653-TILEOpen Monday-Friday 9-6 INTRODUCING Designers Choice Cabinetry from Morgan Hill Construction Tile, Stone, Carpet, Hardwood, Laminate & Granite Countertops 1458 South 6th St. | Macclenny ... a big tax increase. eyre going to raise cain.Glen councilman Dickie Fosterpredicting reaction from low-income residents Semi-support for re assessment hikeEnd to Glens waiver on feesMIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF One of two matters on the workshop agenda of the Glen St. Mary Town Council on June 7 was the ex pansion of the towns sewer system north from U.S. 90, which has been stalled by the discovery of an underground fiber optic cable in the path where town engineers had planned to have sewer pipes placed. Council members agreed that they wanted the project to proceed, though it will exceed its $1.1 million budget due to engineering modifications and for the town to pay a contractor that incurred expenses before the work was temporarily halted. Florida Infrastructure Inc. of Callahan submitted the winning bid of $1,086,288 in Decem ber and began mobilizing equipment and workers soon after being given a notice to proceed in April. Before any new pipes were installed, however, the cable was discovered blocking the right-of-way in one area. The contractor has submitted a claim seeking reimbursement of around $75,000 in mobilization costs, a figure the town has, thus far, declined to pay. We dont think that number is reasonable, said town engineer Tim Norman of Mittauer & Associates, Inc. Were still discussing what those costs should be. Im waiting to hear back from them (contractor). He said starting over and rebidding the project would not be feasible be cause prices likely would be higher on new bids, adding: Were trying to get the best deal we can for the town. The sewer expansion project, which will add dozens of new customers to the Glen St. Mary utility system, originally began with $1.1 million in state grant funds. But Mayor Juanice Padgett said tentative costs are already $140,000 over the grant, excluding what the town may end up paying to the contractor in additional expenses.Sewer project stalled in Glen JON SHUMAKEPolice arrested a Macclenny woman in the early hours of June 6 for domestic battery after she admitted to slapping and kneeing her boyfriend, with whom she has a child in common. Deputy John Murphy noticed a pan and several household items were scattered in front of 20-yearold Marlena Colemans residence upon his arriv al about 1:30 a.m. He told her he was there because someone called police in reference to her and James Honeycutt, 20, of Jacksonville being involved in a disturbance. Ms. Coleman initially denied the altercation took place at her residence and that Mr. Honeycutt was present, but then admitted she was lying. She said she and Mr. Honeycutt were arguing because he told her she was a bad moth er. She said freaked out, according to Deputy Mur phy, before she slapped him and struck him in the head with her knee. Mr. Honeycutt, who was jailed on May 24 for allegedly shoving Ms. Coleman onto a couch and biting her arm, denied being struck. In a previously unreported case of child neglect, the state attorneys office filed two felony counts against Cheri Lynn Wells, 38, of Glen St. Mary last week for abandoning her two children at Tiny Tots Day Care on April 27. The Florida Department of Children and Fam ilies placed the children with the day care owner and attempted to reach Ms. Wells by phone to no avail. Three days later the sheriffs office sought a warrant for her arrest for child neglect after further attempts to reach her by phone failed and she didnt pick up the children from daycare.Woman jailed for boyfriend battery Womens Center of Jax24HOUR RAPE CRISIS HOTLINE :904.721.7273

ursday, June 14, 2018 T B C P Page 5Park work day planned for June 30 by RAB membersJOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA month after Sixth Street Veterinary Hospital owner Dr. Michal Anne Harris called for a better vaccina tion program at county animal control, puppies from the department adopted at a local business were found to be infected with the common and highly-contagious parvovirus. Late last month Crook ed Rooster Brewery owner Sarah Sheppard informed the countys Animal Advisory Committee the new owners of the puppies had to spend hundreds of dollars to treat the virus, which is life-threatening to dogs, and she spent $240 to decon taminate the brewpub for its regular canine social. Animal control director Georgia Monfort, who serves on the advisory panel with county manager Ken nie Downing and Dr. Harris, explained that puppies need four parvovirus vaccines, each administered two weeks apart during an eightweek period. Dr. Harris added that even puppies vaccinated can contract the virus, its just much less likely. She said after two vaccines the odds of infection are greatly re duced. The infected puppies at the brewery were also at the Dog Days of Baker Festival earlier in the day, Ms. Sheppard noted, so they may have been infected by other dogs at the festival. She suggested the county increase its adoption fee, however, to fund a more robust vaccination program at animal control. Dr. Harris pointed out that its often dog owners who infect puppies with the virus simply by walking around outdoors. The matter surfaced May 22 during the committees continued discussion on goals for the department in the coming years, including achieving a 55 percent live release rate or reducing the euthanization rate to 45 percent from the 2017 rate of about 50 percent by 2019. Animal control needs goals to make it a better place for animals to go and to help the people who work there. Im all for helping the animals, said Ms. Sheppard. I think though on your goals I would like to see an increase in the adoption fee and move that year-two goal up to year one. A lot of pets are leaving there with diseases and if we start that now ... We can afford to get them parvo shots or whatever they need to make them healthier. Dr. Harris recommended contacting animal shelter medicine experts at the University of Florida to help estimate the cost of a comprehensive vaccination and intake program. She pledged to reach out to the university and report back this month. Right now [animal con trol] has no budget at all to purchase any drugs. I donate as many as I can when we have a litter we really want to save ..., said the vet. To do the disease pre vention that we all want desperately so that nothing develops parvo after it gets adopted ... its a lot. Its probably in labor and medication $65 to $75 per pet, not indo. And thats probably a low ball. Dr. Harris said the planning and implementation of a comprehensive vaccination protocol, which would likely take approval from county commissioners, would likely take a year or more to accomplish. She said all animals that come through her facility are vaccinated, but the vaccines alone cost about $85,000 per year. She estimated a for vaccinations by animal control would be $5000. But where are you going to get it from? Thats the problem I think of putting these things in year one, said Dr. Harris. Both she and committee member Cathy Hooper also cited the need for a quaran tine area for the animal shelter on Steel Bridge Road to prevent the spread of disease among animals there. Dr. Harris said among cats in particular upper respiratory infections are very problematic. She called the infections the bane of every shelters existence. And thats all about how a shelter is set up ... said the vet. The panel continued the discussion on disease control among horses in the county as well, noting that mosquito-borne illnesses like eastern equine encephalitis can be deadly to unvaccinated horses. Ms. Downing explained that the county, unlike the City of Macclenny, doesnt routinely spray for mosquitoes due to scarce funding and fears that honeybees could be killed in the process. However, she said, the county does have a limited amount of funding from the state to spray properties as the request of owners. If you have an excessive amount of mosquitoes and you live in the county, we do have a little bit of funding to send our service company to come and spray your property, she said. There are also tablets the county distributes to kill mosquitoes in standing bodies of water like horse troughs. In other recent animal control news, a pet adoption event at Pet Smart in Clay County adopted out six of seven animals from county animal control. by one of the event volunteers. Eleven cats from Baker County were also adopted. The next Pet Smart adoption will be in two months.

The cleanups will take place on June 30 at 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will meet at the county administration building and then fan out to county parks in Olustee, Cuyler, Mar garetta, Taylor and elsewhere, depending on how many participants show up. Repair work in Margaretta, for example, will include repainting the basketball court lines, repairing cracks in the court and new rims as well as park bench repairs. New swings are also being sought for the parks in Margaretta and Cuyler, including toddler swings. The county is funding the materials for repairs and will provide gloves, trash bags and the like for cleanup work to occur simultaneously with the repairs.

The current recreation department budget is about $193,000, but due to the splitting of a maintenance position between that department and recreation, the requested funding for 2018-19 fell to about $173,000, explained the county manager. Timber harvesting at the park is expected to net about $50,000 after paying for consultants, contractors and replanting, which Ms. Kennie admitted was not much for Shoals Parks future needs. She hopes the timber revenue will be supplemented by entry and camping fees in the future to begin to build a matching fund for recreation grants. Money raised from park operations can only be spent on park improvements. We need to start a fund for grant matching, Ms. Downing said.

This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from five wells. The wells draw from the Floridian Aquifer. Our water is obtained from ground water sources and is aerated and chlorinated for disinfection purposes. Aqua Mag is added for corrosion control at City of Macclenny. In 2017 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are no sources of contamination identified for this system. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/ swapp This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Richard Harris or Walter Sloan at 904-259-4491. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of each month at City Hall at 7pm. The City of Macclenny routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2017. Data obtained before January 1, 2017, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.City of Macclenny If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Macclenny is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petro leum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water meets health standards. During the 2017 monitoring period, we were required to monitor or test for synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides and herbicides in two separate quarters separated by 60 days or conduct one quarter of sampling and submit a request to the Department of Environmental Protection to waive the second set. While the first set of results showed no detection, we failed to submit the paperwork requesting to waive the second set of monitoring and would have been eligible to waive sampling. The necessary paperwork was submitted to the Department in March 2018. We at City of Macclenny would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. **Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides and herbicides, and volatile organic contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.Contaminant and Unit of Measurement Dates of sampling (mo./yr.)MCL Violation Y/N Level Detected Range of Results MCLG MCL Likely Source of ContaminationInorganic ContaminantsBarium (ppm) 9/2017 N 0.014 0.011 to 0.014 2 2 Discharge of drilling wastes; discharge from metal reneries; erosion of natural deposits Flouride (ppm) 9/2017 N 0.51 0.30-0.51 4 4.0 Erosion of natural deposits; discharge from fertilizer and aluminum factories.

Through TAOs website ed by depression, anxiety, stress, addiction and other mental health disorders can learn about their conditions and be taught self-help exercises, like meditation, which can be repeated between one-on-one video or phone calls sessions with therapists. TAO Connect supplements in-person therapy sessions by utilizing a method called low intensity-high engagement therapy. This process functions through online and mobile educa tional modules and practice tools with short phone conversations or video conferences with a therapist, the press release states. pending on how youre feeling, [TAO] will sort of graph which one seemed to work the best for you and which explained Dr. Benton. The telehealth services wont replace existing treat ment methodologies at Me ridian, but rather supple ment them. Dr. Benton said testing TAO in recent years has or more so than the classic therapy model, essentially meeting with a psychologist in person for an hour a week. With any of these [telehealth] models you can see sometimes three or four times as many patients, she said. Particularly for Baker County which has few mental health providers to serve the community tele health options eliminate have in traveling to Lake City, Jacksonville or Gainesville for care. It will be a lot more convenient for people, said Carli McLean, Meridians se nior vice president of clinical programs and business de velopment. They dont have to take a lot of time traveling to a clinic, theyll be able to get those services very conveniently. Dr. Benton, a trained psychologist, has spent 30 years in mental health as a clinician, researcher and admin istrator, and says, one of the constant problems in mental health is we dont have enough resources to remote ly meet the need. The federal government estimates there are more than 100 million people in the country living in areas with too few mental health care providers, including Baker County. ... I experienced this firsthand working in the ing center director and we constantly had more people who needed help than we could possibly accommodate, said the doctor. And if you put students on a waitgoing to lose their semester future ... TAO, which launched commercially in 2015 after being tested for two years in multiple settings, has contracts with providers in the U.S. and Canada with plans to expand to Australia. The company and Meridian did not disclose the price of the Meridian contract by press time, though Dr. Ben ton estimated it was about $100 per client per month. The partnership with Me ridian began a few months ago and clients could have access to TAO Connect starting next month, said Ms. McLean of Meridian. What we really liked was the evidence-based nature of the modules that TAO uses and the approach it takes and the way that it integrates with the in-person therapy, she said. Currently, walk-in clients cess therapists located in a ence call or video. The partnership with TAO, however, will allow patients the same access from home or work. This is going to be our telehealth from clinic into client homes or client mobile devices ... So its a pretty big leap, said Ms. McLean. However, TAOs tele health services will not re place existing treatment methods, like group counseling sessions or longer in-person visits with therapists. Its not one or the other, said Ms. McLean. Well still sions, group therapy, the full continuum of services, but this is a good add-on for the people who are clinically appropriate. Meridians clients will have access to TAO Connects eight online-based courses to help them deal with anxiety, depression, ad diction and more. The digital health companys suite also includes inter active tools like The Mind Elevator, a technology using a proprietary algorithm to help users alter negative thinking habits. Meridian counsels more than 20,000 people annually throughout North Central Florida. TAO Connect is also available through subscription plan and is being used at more than 75 universities in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

Page 8 T B C P ursday, June 14, 2018 Everyone loves to read about people who do dumb things to get themselves caught breaking the law. Not that they necessarily intend the outcome but, well, theyre just dumb, or simply having a dumb day, to be kind. A simple Google search reveals endless examples of this behavior, and they make good reading because theres humor in all of them. The essence of humor, after all, is irony mixed with varying degrees of the truth. Like the man in Citrus County who used his wanted poster photo on his Facebook page. Or the Kentucky woman who took her son to a Shop with a Cop event, then was caught shoplifting in the same store while the event was ongoing. Guess she thought the cops were busy elsewhere. Then theres the fake stop on a real cop in Vir ginia. And then theres the crack addict who enlisted a policemans help in getting her money back for bad crack. Well, 2018 is half over with plenty of time remaining, but so far a young Macclenny man is out of the gate far in front of any competition in the Bonehead Sweepstakes this year. That would be Keshawn for allegedly revealing to at least two other inmates his plan to put out a hit on Circuit Judge James Colaw. Based on the BCSO detectives narrative of the investigation leading up to and subtracted a few others he also planned in the kill for hire scheme, though he seemed a bit unsure on the price that ranged from a high of $5000 down to $750 mentioned to a police vices. So why was this man irked at the judge? That would be the result Judge Colaw threw him in jail for six months after threatening gesture aimed testifying in the April trial of a drug dealer. Lets label that Dumb Act Number One. And we dont have to say allegedly here, because the judge saw it and orcourthouse. He was sent directly from the courtroom to county jail for contempt of court. Oh, and he denied to the judge that he did it, as in Are you going to believe me or your lyin eyes. his heart set on being a gangsta (and we hope he doesnt), he needs a little polishing. For the time being, he should be watching the calendar hoping the next six months go by slow enough that someone else will grab the Bonehead title. For now, hes the oddson favorite.LETTERS TO THE EDITOR BAKER SOCIALIZING Dear Editor: Another Dollar General oh me! Does this make seven in Baker County? I must say that the one that recently opened on 125 North has a country look about it nice! Im not a frequent shopper in those stores but I decided to check it out and found they have a large variety of things. Our daughter calls it the mall. Guess were in!Joan Mallard TaylorDear Editor: and many others who volunteered made this a very special time for us seniors. The songs of Steve Branch, especially Im Proud to be an American, made us stand up. A wonderful time was had by many in our church, and we look forward to next years good food, entertainment and fellowship with other seniors.Richard and Jeanne Wallstedt MacclennyThanks to senior sh fry volunteersAnother DG store!ImpressionsJim McGauley Leads pack for Bonehead awardEvery now and then I get in a bind trying to do something simple at work or around the house and I think, theres got to be an easier way. Some time ago people came up lists of ways to get around simple problems using what they called Life Hacks. The term is a good one. Youre using something to hack through or hack into a problem and solve it. Here are a few Have some copper pans you want to polish but you dont have copper polish? Go into the cabinet and grab some when youre done. If youre still in a polishing mood and want to move to the silver but dont have any silver polish, toothpaste works Got some burned on crud on the bottom of a pan? Heres a simple tip from simpler times. Cover it with water and a little dish soap. Let it soak a bit and then heat it on low and use a spatula to scrape it up. Troubled by gnats? Dish soap in sugar water lures them in and they cant get out. Dish soap and mineral water or tonic water is a great utes. Battery wont turn over. Clean the cables with a little Coca Cola. It helps cut through the dried on battery acid. If you dont like the idea of killing weeks with toxic insecticides try boiling water with a tablespoon of salt mixed in. Works pretty well and pretty quickly. Got a big spider that youre afraid to swat and theres no bug spray? Try hairspray. The varmint will fall right out of the web and you can stomp on him. Heres something that every mom has had to deal with at one time or another chewing gum in the hair or on a favorite shirt. The solution 50-100 years ago peanut butter. Something about peanut butter that helps remove gum. If you hate getting dust all over everything when you clean fan blades, heres a solution. Use an old pillowcase. Encase the blade in the pillowcase and all the dust will stay there and not on you, the carpet or the furniture. Here are a few of my favorite newer hacks. When ironing a button-up shirt, turn the shirt inside out. It will make it so much easier than trying to iron in between buttons. Put a dryer sheet in the part of your luggage where youll stick your dirty clothes. To avoid a lot of mess at breakfast but your pancake batter in a squeeze container like an old ketchup bottle. If you have two similar looking keys, paint the top of one with nail polish. Instead of shoving all your cleaning supplies under the sink to spill or disappear, buy a plastic hanging shoe bag and store them in the pockets. Hang it up in the laundry room. Hate those stinking blister packs like I do? Use a can opener or sharp pizza cutter to get them open. Add a teaspoon of baking soda to the water when you icing to have a cupcake sandwich. Shove a popsicle stick through a cupcake holder to avoid a sticky mess. Got yucky residue on your shower head? Pour vinegar in a plastic bag and tie it tightly around the shower head over night and it will remove the yuck with no work from you. Grab a pair of grill tongs the next time you make lemonade and slide the lemon all the way up the inside of the tong and squeeze from the other end. No sticky lemon juice on your hands. Stick a nail through a wine cork and pull it out with a hammer if you dont have a corkscrew. A screw also works with the hammer. Toothpaste will clear up hazy plastic headlight covers in There you have it. Making your life easier one column at a time.

The First Coast YMCA is honored to partner with Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida Blue and Feeding Northeast Florida to help close the gap of food insecurity among children all summer long. Feeding Northeast Florida, Jacksonvilles community food bank, is dedicated to rescuing high-quality food that would normally be wasted and transform ing it into meals for those in need. With children out of school, summer is the most challenging time of year for the food bank to keep enough inventory stocked to meet the increased demand from local families. Food and monetary donations collected during this drive will be used to host Feeding Northeast Florida Mobile Food Pantries at seven locations across the First Coast. These mobile food pantries deliver fresh and shelf-sta ble food to neighborhoods that do not have adequate grocery stores, feeding agencies or pantries within an accessible distance. Food insecurity is a year-round issue, but we know that it is even more pronounced when school is out for the summer, said Jaguars Foundation Senior Vice President Peter Racine. For that reason, the Jaguars Foundation is working with Feeding Northeast Florida, the First Coast YMCA and Florida Blue to help parents feed their families this summer. Both the Jaguars Foundation and Florida Blue are the Y and Feeding Northeast Florida. We all have a responsibility to ensure that children in our community have the basics to be their very best, said Florida Blue Market President Darnell Smith. The summer break from school should not result in our children going without consistent access to nutritious food. Florida Blue is honored to partner with Feeding Northeast Florida, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the YMCA to help meet the nutritious needs of children in our community.Food drive at area YMCAs June 15-30 Share your good news...Weddings & Birthsbakercountypress.com We want to share your letter to the editor so send it toeditor@bakercountypress.com and sign it!
