ursday, July 5, 2018 T B C P Page 3JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comFor the fourth time in as many years, the New River Solid Waste Association is seeking a partnership to turn methane gas collected Raiford into cold hard cash. The latest collaboration recommended by New River staff and engineers is with a White Plains, New York company, Fortistar, which proposes to build a 1500-cubic-feet-per-minute gas processing system to convert the landfill gas into natural gas for distribution to TECO Peoples Gas and compressed natural gas (CNG) stations at the landfill and elsewhere to fuel CNG vehicles, perhaps including garbage trucks from Alachua County. Tampa-based TECO, meanwhile, is pledging to extend an 8-inch main gas line from U.S. 301 and build an interconnection facility as part of the project. The companies have agreed to share revenue from the sale of gas through royalty payments 4 percent of revenue up to $8 million per year and 15 per cent of revenue above that threshold during the 20year life of the partnership. The royalties are projected to be on average $1.8 million per year or more than $36 million over the two de cades. The lower royalty tier, company representatives their initial investment, estimated at $30-$40 million. That puts some skin in the game for the counties, a lot of skin in the game for us, Fortistar senior vice president of renewable fu els David C. Unger told New River board members June 26. ... If prices stay where they are and we see the market grow then the royalties will grow with the market, he said. Fortistar is also proposing to contribute $34,000 annually for repairs to the system with New River contributing an equal sum as well. Thats in addition to Fortistar investing $1 million in mutually agreed landfill gas collection system improvements, reads the project proposal. Fortistar senior vice president of operations Anthony J. Falbo said the company became interested in the creasing value of renewable fuel credits the project will create due to the environmental benefits of natural gas over traditional wet fuels like diesel and petroleum. If initial contracts can be cial operation could begin by January 2020, he said. Most of the credits will be derived from the gas fed into the pipeline that in turn feeds CNG fueling stations designed and built by a TruStar. Thats really where we see the value and where we got excited, added Mr. Un ger. TECO, meanwhile, began focusing on renewable gas about two years ago, said the companys natural gas manager Juan F. Reina. Ill admit we werent excited about it 10 years ago because its not our core business. But as weve changed and the industry has changed and theres more certainty in the quality [of the gas] and more certainty in the economic value of the [credits], weve gotten a lot more excited, he said. So much so that last year TECO sought and obtained three key regulatory changes from the Florida Public Service Commission: more permission to charge for access to its system, not just delivery of gas, as well as a new tax to invest in natural gas technology and projects. Were proposing to use all three of those things in this project, partnering with experts that know how to do it better than we do internally, said Mr. Reina. ... It allows us to extend our gas distribution system into this area and at the same time provide a green alternative for gas not being used currently, and on top of that getting some economic value for the counties. gineering consultant Joel Woolsey of Jones Edmunds said they favored the proposal above three others because it represents a true partnership that could benThe investment were going to make here is a leap of faith on both sides, noted Mr. Falbo earlier. Under the royalty model, Mr. Woolsey said, everybody is motivated to pull together ... Were tied to the same thing. Fortistar began as a finance company but after acquisitions is now a $4 billion energy company with ects under construction, including one in Hillsborough County. While New River board members, including county commissioners James Croft and Cathy Rhoden, voted to begin negotiations with the two-company team to move the project forward, they also agreed on an alterent than the Fortistar-TECO plan. The second-ranked proposal from American Energy Partners of Oklahoma City, OK, involves moving a plant in beta-testing from liquid fuel similar to diesel but cleaner burning. The biggest advantage to the proposal was that a buyer for the fuel has already been identified and up in running in less than a year. The company pledged to pay New River about than $10 million during the next 15 years. In other business that day, the New River board, consisting of two commissioners from each member county Baker, Bradford and Union learned that the counties will likely have to begin paying for pick up of recycling at county dump sites. Ed Higgs, owner of Reliable Recycling and Shredding Services in Lake City, said prices for the limited cardboard, newsprint and metal cans, but not plastic or glass have dropped too much to continue free collection, which has been ongoing for the last four years. In his letter to New River, Mr. Higgs also pointed to higher insurance and fuel He proposed charging $150 per month per dump site or $500 per month for picking up at a single county-designated location. Baker County, which has the most dump locations in the association with seven, would face an annual cost of $12,600 to continue existing service or $6000 for a central location under the proposal. 397-0633541 S. 6th Street | MacclennyMon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-4pmBuy a 3 Month Tanning Package and get1 MONTH FREE Every BODY looks better when its a BRONZE BODY !JULY SPECIAL!3 NEW level 2 turbo power beds! 1 NEW level 4 turbo plus!NEW VERSA SPA!

He allegedly exposed his genitals in the presence of a 45-year-old female from Gulfport, FL as she made a purchase at the counter. The victim initially reported on June 12 she was in the store about 10:15 a.m. but police later learned it was earlier in the day. But by the time sex crimes investigator Tracie Benton discovered the correct time on June 18 and attempted to review the stores security camera video from an earlier hour, the June 9 recording was no longer available. The earli est recording was from June 13. The store manager and the suspects wife, Eunha Jun, 36, stated multiple times during the investigation she didnt know how to export the June 9 video onto a DVD or other storage device. After the victim reported the incident, Deputy Andrew Thames questioned Ms. Jun at the store and re viewed surveillance video from the morning in question, but starting at 10 a.m. A Korean translator could not be found to interview Mr. Kim, who speaks limited English. The officers review of video footage was inconclusive due to the direction the suspect was facing as two unidentified female customers bought items and left. He appeared to partially pull down his pants and lift up his shirt while one of the females was in the re stroom, however. The officer noted that Ms. Jun was uncooperative, repeatedly fast forwarding the surveillance video and refusing to reveal personal information about her husband. Detective Benton returned the following day, June 13, to review the 10 a.m. footage and saw Mr. Kim lifting up his shirt and pulling down his pants to partially expose his buttocks while facing the restroom on the morning in question. She noted that no one came to the counter, however. After a failed attempt to contact the victim on June 13 the detective was able er when she repeated pri or statements that Mr. Kim exposed himself when she made her purchases.

In the emergency room, Ms. Hawking, who said she is pregnant with twins, told police she was struck in the right shoulder before Ms. Suess was restrained. The victim said she was struck once more in the same area and kicked in the knee after the patient began to act out again. Ms. Hawking said her knee was still hurting three hours after the attack, and she added she began to experience a severe amount of pain in her abdomen after Ms. Suess was restrained.

Eight of them were walk-ins while the ninth person made an appointment. The turnout was better than expected. Its pretty good when you dont have a captive audience, said Mr. Morales, referencing testing drives at big events. He said testing at a college spring break event typically draws 15 or so people. I consider that a good success, said Mr. Morales the following day. The nine clients were ger and the blood samples were tested for signs of the virus. Any positive results tional blood tests.

In 2016, latest year for which data is available from the Florida Department of Health, there were 88 people in the county living with HIV. There was one new AIDS case reported that year and three new HIV cases, all white males. Statistics that year show, however, the highest HIV infection rates in Baker County were among the Hispanic, black and male populations. The rate among whites was less than half the black rate and the rate among Hispanics was more than four times white rate. The Hispanic infection rate was 61 percent higher than the black rate and the male rate was more than three times the female rate.

It prevents HIV, but not all other STDs. By the end of the year the medication, a daily pill, should be available for free in all 67 counties in Florida. For $30, the health department can test for all STDs, including HIV. An HIV doctor sees patients at the clinic once a month. Mr. Morales said HIV testing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. Safe sex. Thats at the top of the list, and not sharing needles, certainly, Mr. Morales said in terms of the best way to protect yourself. According to state data, most new adult HIV/AIDS cases result from unprotected sex between men, which accounted for 60 percent of new cases in 2016, followed by heterosexual contact, 34 percent, and injecting drugs, 4 percent. The state HIV/AIDS hotline is 1-800-FLA-AIDS (352-2437) for English and 1-800-545-SIDA (545-7432) for Spanish.

Page 8 T B C P ursday, July 5, 2018 Hey, Kelley, are those dragons laying across the guardrail? No they arent, she replied sweetly. I closed my eyes again. Are you sure? One of them just opened his mouth and smiled at me. No dragons. Hmm. Every time I close my eyes I see three of them. One is asleep, one isnt paying me any mind and the big white one keeps looking at me. I promise you there are no dragons. OK. I believe you. It must be the anesthetic talking. Thats probably it. Probably. That conversation actually happened well at least I think it did last week as we drove home from knee replacement surgery. Much needed knee replacement surgery. For a year and a half I have struggled with a bum left knee. When it is really bad I walk like a drunken penguin. Im sure its very humorous to peo ple watching it, but its not something Im fond of. It got to the point that I gave in to the idea that I something that was standard equipment. Im actually a pretty de cent patient once I break down and go to the doctor. The only problem is that my conversations are very similar to what you read in my columns. For example: Dr. Redmond: So how did this happen? Me: Well, I think the warranty ran out on the knee. Him: That happens. Me: I made a mistake and when they called about an extended warranty I wouldnt answer thinking it was a telemarketer selling time shares. Him: Good thinking. Me: So, tell me, doctor, did you study in college or did you party all the time. Him: You can look at my diplomas if youd like. Me: Nah. Ive got a bunch of those too and you operating on you. Him: I studied. Me: A physician once told me that surgeons are really the mechanics of things that break down or wear out. How are you at changing the oil in your car? Him: Im pretty good. He then went on to inform me that he was using a robot to do the operation. According to him, the robot was quicker, more accurate and there was much less of a chance of infection. Me: Sounds good to me. Question though. Are you using R2D2 or C3PO? Im but Id prefer R2D2. C3P0 ask me. I dont need a knee that speaks 2 million languages including Wookie. Him: I think that this robot is much closer to R2D2. Me: Works for me. Lets do it. Youd think hed think twice about actually having a patient like me. I guess he knew that Id be knocked out and couldnt make jokes about R2D2. The surgery was really pretty interesting. Not that I remember much about it, but it was partial knee surgery and I was in and out surgery center at 7 a.m., out of surgery by 11 a.m. and having conversations about dragons as we drove home around 2 p.m. Ive been watching the World Cup, keeping my leg elevated and doing all my physical therapy. Hopefully everything will heal properly and Ill be back on my feet very soon.

As a U.S. Army veteran, I have a deep appreciation for dence. Changing the date takes away from the importance of remembering the correct day.Roberta Koniuchowsky Glen St. MaryDear Editor: On Sunday my husband and I attended Westside Baptist Church with friends from Jacksonville. We attend there when they have special services at Thanksgiving, Christmas and July Fourth when the church goes all out with the beautiful music and program. The pastor brought to light what is happening in our country, mentioning that he had seen a big billboard along tion. My husband is a hunter and is a member of the NRA, and he resents that billboard and Im sure all the hunters in Florida and Georgia would resent it too. We have traveled to over 17 countries and we havent seen one that comes close to matching up with the freedom that we have in the U.S.A. My oldest brother was killed in WWII defending our rights and freedom. In grade school and proudly stood for the National Anthem. Please, if you dont love our country, dont destroy it for the proud Americans that do.

But according to a recently released report Out of Reach 2018 from the National Low Income Housing Coalition minimum wage workers here have to work nearly two full-time jobs two-bedroom unit priced at the countys fair market derived from HUD data. A look at the numbers: The coalition reports that the hourly wage needed to fair market rent of $741 is $14.25, or nearly double the states minimum wage of $8.25. That means a single parent would have to work 1.7 full-time jobs to make rent. Thats 68 hours a week. Putting lowest-wage earners aside for a moment, the annual median non-family (see average single parent) income in Baker County is more than $1000 less than whats room unit here. Only when you examine annual median household income (see two parent households) does the math start to work. Experts classify housing costs more than 30 percent of annual income. Thats $1555 a month for households with the median income here. But for low-income households, the math doesnt work. For those with about a third of the median income, the line separatable housing is about $500 a month. A brief look at last weeks rental ads in this newspaper showed all but one rental above that mark and one right on it. This all shows very clearly that for many families in Baker County, housing able. Now, the coalition, which is funded by J.P. Morgan and Chase, did this research across the country with a simple aim to get the federal government to housing programs, nearly all of which have been cut by hundreds of millions of dollars, and one program by billions, in the last eight years.

ursday, July 5, 2018 T B C P Page 9Unfortunately, when you travel on roads in Florida, you often see animals that were casualties of collisions with vehicles. When was the last time you saw a dead crow on the road? I cant remember the last time I did. Crows are in the corvid family of birds and are among the smartest of our avian neighbors. Audacious, intelligent, inventive and adaptable, crows are among the smartest of spe cies of Floridas birds. The all-black American crow is about 18 inches in length. It has a long, thick bill with a fan-shaped tail. Often, crows are heard before they are seen. The most common call of the American crow is a loud, resounding caw. However, several other variations of calls and sounds are used by crows to convey information to other crows. Native Americans held crows in high esteem. They considered them good birds and neighbors. Many later-day farmers had a would regularly feed on their crops depleting their supply for food and for sale. poisoned the birds and practiced other means to destroy crow populations. crows survived. Crows are basically omnivores, meaning that they dont turn down many They relish insects, fruits, seeds and even carrion. Yes, they even feed on dead animals that frequently are found on our roads. Crows nest high in trees with a nest lined with leaves, grasses and bark. Usually four to six greenish eggs with brown spots are laid. They hatch in about weeks later. In addition to the American or common crow, North crow. Slightly smaller than the American crow, the closer to the coast than the American crow. The most crows calls. They are usu ally shorter and more nasal than the American crows more like a nasal ca or car sound. It takes a bit of cies of crows. In overlapping range areas, crows are often mistaken for ravens. Ravens are not usually found in Florida. They are quite a bit larger than crows with a thicker, heavier bill. Like the crows and other corvids, ravens are highly intelligent birds. There are reports of crows and ravens collect ing jewelry and other small to garnish their nests. You may not want to leave your windows open if there are crows around. So, the next time you see are indeed watching one of natures smartest and most intelligent birds. Take a moment to enjoy the experience. And check your wrist to make sure your watch is still attached! Crow fact: a group or murder of crows. Enjoy your North Florida nature trails.

It means that somebody really has a great deal of me feel like its an opportunity I cant turn down, said coach Ruise, who played for the then-Lake City Community College from 1985-87 before playing for Edward Waters College. The atmosphere seems to be like its going to be like it was in my 25 years at Baker, he continued. Its community of people that are real supportive and they take their basketball per sonally. It does my body and soul well. Coach Ruise, 50, met with FGC president Dr. Lawrence Barrett after learning of the position from former teammates, and said the process was short and sweet and to the point. As an alumnus of the college and a local high school coach for more than 25 years, we think coach our program, Dr. Barrett said in the press release. Coach Ruise, who will re main at BCHS during school hours for the 2018-19 school year, started at FGC on July 1. He said last week he was looking forward to building a relationship with the players and ingraining the program into the community.

He said the decision to leave was bitter-sweet, but said he will strive to con tinue representing the Cats while at FGC. ... Once a Wildcat youre always a Wildcat, coach Ruise said. I really enjoyed my time as head basketball coach at Baker, and the relationships I built I will never forget them. Im going to represent them with the fullest idea of doing the things I need to do to be a success for me. When looking back at his career at Baker Coun ty, he enjoyed the bonds he formed with the players more-so than the wins and championships. He said he liked watching the players who entered as freshmen bloom into seniors four years later. By time they become seniors I see them become young men that not only be come good basketball players but they become good student-athletes that have the potential to be life long learners, he said. Coach Ruise also thanked everyone in the community who has supported Wildcat basketball. I thank the whole Baker County family for the sup port over the years theyve given me. I feel like theyve prepared me well and I will get out there and do my job to the fullest, he said. I hope to see them in the gym [at FGC]. Were looking forward to it.

JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR sports@bakercountypress.comOffensive coordinator Josh Jacobson changes the BCHS Wildcat football every year in an effort to to train the players. New in 2018: A voluntary speed session on Fridays to supplement the teams man datory summer workouts held Mondays to Thursdays. Coach Jacobson said the Friday drills were added this year to increase Baker Countys speed and develop the players sprinting mechanics. Sprinting is a taught skill. Now some people are more genetically going to be faster than others, but everybody can get faster, he said on June 29 following the Fourth of July. The new drills have av eraged about 15-20 players through the first month, coach Jacobson said, and the July 29 outing had roughly 10 players. weve ever done this and for these athletes to commit to 30 training sessions in the summer is a lot, he said. But the ones that show up they work hard and I cant complain at all. cused on sprint drills, start ing at 30 yards early in the summer before working up to 40-yard dashes by the end of June. The players re ceive 2 minutes, 30 seconds of recovery time between each 40-yard sprint, allowing them to be close to 100 percent when its time to run again, coach Jacobson said. The Friday drills were added to the teams usual sprint and tempo drills held during the mandatory workouts. The skill players take the field on Mondays and Wednesdays, while the line men do so on Tuesday and Thursdays. Coach Jacobson said the bonus speed drills allow the players to get more work in throughout the week without exhausting them in a single day. It just allows me to lengthen or stretch out the volume over a longer distance, which is good for them because then you dont have to do 500 yards in a day, he said. It can be like 300 [yards], 300, 300 or accumulating whatever volume we are for the week. Coach Jacobson created the workout program based on years of reading and re search, including reading about Olympic sprinter and sprint coach Charlie Francis. He said the program pects depending on the time is a great time to put on weight during the accumulation block. The accumulation block transitions into the intensification stage where players develop maximum strength and speed which focuses more on speed than the accumulation stage. You can bench 600, but if you dont have guys that are fast that can run, especially in the state of Florida, the probability of you winning is very low, coach Ja cobson said. The Cats will transition to outs when they return on July 9 for the second phase of summer workouts. Fall practice officially begins on July 30 with non-padded practices, and the contact practices start on August 4.

ursday, July 5, 2018 T B C P Page 15JON SHUMAKESPORTS EDITOR in 2017 and a spring spent rebuilding its roster, the BCMS Bobcat football team has worked out twice a week during the early portion of the summer in preparation for the 2018 season. About 25 players have turned out for the sessions scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, BCMS er Roberts said on June 28 as skill players lifted weights nearby. The B-Cat play ers alternate between the where Almon Gunter, a former track star, runs the team through speed, agility and conditioning drills. Theyre having fun with it, man. Its a good experience for them to get them ready for the next level like dinator said. Theyre enjoying it. Theyre taking what were teaching them. Coach Roberts said the BCHS Wildcat football program has given them advice on what they want the middle school players to work on. He said high school players need strength in both their upper and lower bodies, and the middle school workouts are designed to help them get ready for the Wildcats. But teaching the B-Cats how to lift properly is more important than how much weight they are currently able to lift. Some of these guys are the first time theyve ever seen a squat rack. Some of them have never benched before in their life. Its just something were going to teach them, coach Roberts said. Its not all about how much weight you can do right now. Its about doing it right and making sure your reps are clean. Each session splits the team between the linemen and skill position groups, and when one group is in the weight room the other is on The speed and agility drills vary from week to week, Gunter explained, and are designed to improve the players skill within their re spective positions. Gunter, who also leads free weekly speed camps at the Baker County AYF Football and Cheer Associations Road, said the drills will give the B-Cats an advantage August. For these guys when we theyre going to be in shape so our coaches can run more plays, he said. We can go without a huddle because our guys are in shape. Well win several games just by being in shape. In addition to building strength, speed and agility, coach Roberts hopes the players continue to bond when they return for the second half of summer work outs. The team was given the players are set to return on July 10 to continue the workouts. Some of these guys still dont know each other very well compared to the other two classes, coach Roberts said. Just getting to know each other, trying to trust each other. We want these kids to trust each other so they can count on each other when the games on the line. The B-Cats will hold tryouts for incoming sixth-graders for several day of school on August 10, coach Roberts said. Baker County makes its 2018 debut on August 28 at Lake Asbury. Were excited, man, he said. ... Its going to be a fun year out here for us.
