MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF Florida Power & Light has been granted a county permit to begin developing a solar energy facility on 550 acres of agricultural land along Reid Stafford Road and CR 229 just south of I-10 despite warnings from the county engineer that the development could lead to increased flooding in the area. Most of the scrutiny at a county commission meeting the evening of July 3 focused on FPLs plans to erect 330,000 photovoltaic solar panels and an electric substation on the site, as well as two weir walls across a large drainage ditch. Troy Tarbox, the countys consulting engineer, questioned the validity of FPLs computer flood models and urged commissioners to postpone a decision until after an independent con sultant reviews the project plans and render another opinion. But following a lengthy discussion, during which FPL officials and Mr. Tarbox gave conflicting viewpoints, the board rejected the county engineers recommen dations and unanimously granted FPLs request for a permit after the following language was inserted in a development agreement mandating that FPL would be responsible for any adverse impacts to adjacent July 21Back to School Fun Day School supply giveaway 9 a.m. noon A Day of Hope and Project Street Sweepers are hosting a Back to School Fun Day with activities, haircuts, food, a backpack and school supply giveaway on July 21 from 9 a.m. to noon at Heritage Park in Macclenny.

County engineer at odds with FPLA four-time ex-con from Jacksonville is being held in the Baker County jail this week for Georgia authorities who charged him with concealing the body of a Bryceville woman who was found near St. George across the state line on Friday. Three days before that, Delbert Lamar Goodman, 33, was arrested in Macclenny for Delbert Goodman possession of marijuana and a pot grinder, and for driving a Ford pickup that was stopped by Deputy John Finley Jr. at 6th St. and Shuey. The truck was registered to Jennifer Lynn Perry, 38, the woman reported missing July 7 whose body was found near Barker Blvd. south of St. George. Her family reported her missing to Nassau County authorities on July 11, four days after she was last seen in Bryceville. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) sent the body to Savannah for an autopsy and is treating Ms. Perrys death as a homicide. Deputy Finley stopped the pickup shortly after a member of her family spotted it in Macclenny that night and called 911. He tag that it was registered to Ms. Perry. learned Mr. Goodman was driving on a revoked license with multiple suspensions, and that he also spotted a small marijuana found a marijuana grinder on a body search. The suspect faces one local felony count for the license violation and two misdemean ors for the pot and grinder. Mr. Goodmans criminal record includes prison sentences for carjack ing, burglary, cocaine and meth possession.Arrested in dead womans pickupSee page 2 Photos by Joel AddingtonHealthy eating wraps up library programKacie Kennedy (above right) read two story books about healthy eating for the nal installment of the 2018 summer childrens program sponsored by the Taber library July 17.

Page 2 T B C P ursday, July 19, 2018properties: If FPLs storm water management system causes an offsite adverse flood condition or adversely affects the floodplain outside of the FPL property boundary due to not functioning as it is designed and built to function, as approved by FEMA (Fed eral Emergency Management Agency), FPL shall be responsible for eliminating the cause and taking necessary corrective actions to resolve the condition. If corrective measures are required and not part of previously approved storm water plans, FPL shall be responsible for obtaining the necessary permit modifications through the FDEP (Florida Department of Environmental Protection), the Army Corps of Engineers and Baker County. The issue was brought to the county commission to resolve after months of ne gotiations between Mr. Tarbox and FPL officials failed to reach agreement on the plans. FPL obtained a special use permit from the countys Land Planning Agency in November to build a 74.5 megawatt solar energy facility with a variance for slight deviations in the countys setback requirements to en able the utility to preserve wetlands on the site. Most of the controversy in recent months has related to concerns raised by Mr. Tarbox about FPLs computer flood models, including de signs to build two weir walls, which are physical barriers commonly used to control flow rates of water during heavy rainfall. The model has a lot of serious errors in it, Mr. Tar box told the board. Ive suggested that we have an inde pendent consultant review the model and give us a second opinion because as the model is right now I see all kinds of problems with it. The county engineer fur ther stated that the project requires additional FEMA documentation, while FPL engineers said they had com pleted all documentation needed to begin the project, including those submitted to obtain permits issued by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Kelly Fagan, construction manager for FPLs statewide solar program, offered rebuttal testimony to commissioners, assuring them that the same flood models had been used successfully on solar farm projects in several other counties throughout Florida. We do not want to design, construct or build a site that would have an adverse impact to any of our neighbors and to any adjoining properties, Ms. Fagan stated. This is a 30-year site and we intend on being here for the long haul. I do respect Mr. Tarbox. Youve hired him to do a job and hes done the best engineering effort to carry out that job, so I can appreciate that as an engineer and someone whos responsible for the work of other engi neers. She described the conflict as minor points of engineering differences of opinions. For example, Mr. Tarbox held the position that the solar farm project could lead to a rise in the floodplain levels in the area, which could jeopardize future FEMA disaster relief funds. However, we do not feel that that condition exists and weve provided ample data to show that does not exist on this site with our de sign, Ms. Fagan said. Mr. Tarbox went on to say that if a land develop ment project could increase the 100-year floodplain lev el by a foot or more its re quired to receive approval from FEMA before getting approval at the county level. I have very strong opinions about the models and there are errors in it. Even their data show that their proposed weir walls increased flood stages, he said, adding that in one model the increase was over four feet and in another the increase was about two feet. We already know Reid Stafford Road floods and goes underwater, he said. The FEMA requirement is what were really up against. If the county doesnt enforce FEMA regulations the county stands to lose national flood insurance-backed flood insurance, so a Baker County resident could not buy flood insurance. He further said if the county is not in compliance with FEMA regulations it could be denied federal flood hazard mitigation funding in the future, and weve used those twice in the last two years. Randy Crews, of Reid Stafford Road, was the only audience member who spoke in opposition to the project at the July 3 commission meeting, though he said he realized FPL is one of the largest corporations in the country and theyre going to get what they want. Mr. Crews said FPL plans to erect power lines across an easement on his property to a proposed substation, which he said would devalue my property. Im the one whos going to live near a solar plant, he said. Ive got a three quarter of a million dollar house, a half a million dollar office and a multimillion dollar (construction) business. But he said property value was secondary to his major concern about increased flooding that he feels would be created by FPL. Ive lived out here and owned my property since 1993, Mr. Crews said. There aint nobody knows how water runs down Reid Stafford Road better than I do. That water comes from the other side of (U.S.) 90 and gets four feet deep. After FPL completes its project, Mr. Crews said, hes afraid the flooding might get worse despite reassuring words from utility engineers. Just because youre an engineer and youve got all of it on paper doesnt mean its going to work just like it says, he said to commissioners. How are you going to determine that water dont come back onto my property and devalue my property? He said storm water flows southward across I-10 to the FPL property, which he described as one of the lowest pieces of land in the county, then flows easterly across his land. Ive got a $100,000 sod field that theyre going to cross over and Im going to be looking at power poles and a substation for the next 30 years, he said, telling the board that when all that water comes down on me Im going to be down here. Commissioner Jimmy Anderson admitted that the board was in a bit of a dilemma caught between conflicting engineers opinions. Am I qualified to say this engineer with FPL is correct or am I qualified to say Troy is correct? This puts this board in a bad way, Mr. Anderson said, adding that his primary desire is to make sure nobodys property is affected by water more so that what they are right now. Ms. Fagan said FPL would submit its design to FEMA showing every grain of dirt that we move, every ditch that we fill and will get a final post-construction FEMA flood map for the county. She also said FPL could not guarantee that current flooding conditions would be improved by the solar farm project, but added, We will not exacerbate those condi tions with our storm water model. We will back that up with our designwith our FEMA flood plain map at the end of construction and with our comments (added to the development agreement), she said. At the Land Planning Agency meeting last November, FPL officials said a solar farm should enhance surrounding property values, if anything, because it will produce virtually no noise, have no lights at night, would not generate additional traffic in the area and would require no water or fuel in its operations. We want to bring clean, renewable solar energy to Baker County, said Jim Bush, FPLs North Florida area manager, adding that the project is part of the companys clean energy strategy to reduce dependence on foreign oil and cut down on carbon emissions into the atmosphere.BAKER COUNTY DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION HAVING A COMMUNITY EVENT?

JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comThe Baker County Development Commission which holds large tracts of industrial land for sale on behalf of the county is leaking revenue with a net loss projected this year of more than $15,000. Fortunately, the commission has some $131,000 in cash assets, but Darryl Register, Chamber of Commerce executive cy is in dire need of revenue. A deal the commission agreed to move ahead with last north side of the Walmart Distribution Center property to sought Midpoint Parkway project nearby, could generate $90,000 or more. Mr. Register said the commission, which consists of Dan Masterson, Ronald Mann, Chris Gazes and Polly Gore, depending on how much money will be garnered through The commission will meet again August 27 to consider Mr. Register explained the county needs land for a retention pond for the road project and since the commission I think weve worked out an agreeable solution that will work for the county and the commission, he said, adding that the details, like how much the contractor will pay for the dirt, still need hammering out. But it wont cost the development commission any major land that could be developed, said Mr. Register. He said the commission will attempt to work out a deal with the county, which will hire the contractor to construct MidPoint Parkway, for the contractor to dig out the reten tion pond, and hopefully pay the commission for the dirt. They got to buy dirt and we hope they buy it from us, said Mr. Register, who estimated the commission could get some $60 per load on 1500 to 2000 loads. Thats $90,000 to $120,000. We are in dire need of revenue. If this works out, it will be good for us, the county and the contractor, Mr. Register said. The retention pond wont encompass all 3.5 acres of the ed in the future. The commission approved the plan and gave Mr. Register and the board chair the authority to negotiate on the sale price of the dirt.

ursday, July 19, 2018 T B C P Page 3JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comA seemingly simple project adding shower and wash stations at the trance to St. Marys Shoals Park got more complicat ed last week when Thomas Barton, who maintains county parks, warned the Recreation Advisory Board that the improvements should be designed so components cannot be easily stolen or damaged by trespassers in the park at night. The matter surfaced as Mr. Barton explained his plans for a shower-type wash station for ATVs by the restrooms, admitting that his vision for the project was night and day compared to what board members had envisioned previously a hose system with enough vehicles. The boards Amber Bishara pointed out that without enough water pressure, water would be wasted because users would spend more time in a shower-type their vehicles. Its not going to be user-friendly, she said. Thats when Mr. Barton raised the issue of security. Were looking for some thing that wont be as easy for them to go in at night and say, Hey, let me see how far I can drag this, he said. Ive already had to replace picnic tables. They go in at night and hook picnic tables and drag them all over the park ... I guess theyre surfing on them, I dont know. Weve got some destructive knuckleheads out there. I think it would be a waste of money because its not going to do the purpose we want it to do, responded Ms. Bishara. The boards Paul Talbert suggested anchoring the hose system to prevent theft, but also a valve system feature to stop water from running all night should the system be damaged. Macclenny resident Jason Jager enjoys riding at Shoals Park and has experienced other public and private ATV parks with wash stations. There are wash stations like Mr. Barton described, like a drive-through wash. It a lot of mud and debris. A hose system is better ... You can target the areas that are the dirtiest, he said. To prevent loss of water after vandalism, Mr. Jager noted the breaker powering the bathroom and waat night when the gates are when theyre opened in the morning. The boards Tony Talbert weighed in as well, urging the panel to keep the design originally presented to and approved by county commissioners. The ATV wash was pitched in May as a 624-square-foot covered station with four, 8-by-12foot areas, each with a spigot and 12-foot hose, for an estimated $500. Three shower stations were estimated to cost an other $1000. If we spend too much [money] on one side we could be cheating the other side, said Tony Talbert. County commissioner Jimmy Anderson, who also attended the July 12 meeting the Recreation Advisory Board (RAB), recommended a concrete surface for the wash station rather than the originally proposed gravel surface. Its easier to wash the el. Youll have a mud pit, he said. Mr. Barton went to note that Shoals park ranger, Tim Hodges, has been spot-checking park users to ensure theyre paying entry fees. He said one non-paythe ranger went to verify a payment the guest claimed to have made and then drove through a gate to leave the park. The man was reportedly apprehended and agreed to pay for the $200 in damage to the gate. He was also trespassed from the park for six months, Mr. Barton said. That prompted RABs Ronald Lee to suggest tougher penalties for van dalism at the park to deter such behavior. There should ment, he said. In other business that evening, RAB members: Made plans for another park work day on August 18. Well have a couple of projects we need to follow up on in August, especially It needs to be later in August, said Mr. Crawford. needs some repairs, too. Thats phase 2, he said. Pushing the work day to late August will also give the RAB more time to advertise the event and recruit volunteers. In Margaretta, the parks basketball courts were restriped and new goals and nets were installed, said Mr. Lee, adding that hes personally mowed and picked up litter twice since the pre vious work day on June 30. The whole key to it is letting the community see somebody is there trying to take care of the park, so we can get the community involved, he said. If that means I have to go down once a week or every other week, to pick up paper and mow, Ill do it just so they understand its their park. The upgrades left to do there include repairs to the portable toilet door lock, new signage and leveling on one side of a patio where the cement ends above the ground. Mr. Lee. Im worried some one will twist an ankle or something. He also called for more police patrols at Memorial Park in Macclenny where he found many drug baggies and at the park in Margaretta where people often drink alcohol in violation of park rules. I stopped counting after 25, he said of the baggies. At the park in Taylor, Paul Talbert said the playground equipment still needs painting and the portalet needs to be cleaned out. We can almost check it that a new swing has been ordered for installation soon. Tony Talbert added that the basketball courts in Olustee were restriped as well. Im hoping when we get the basics done and theyre cleaned up, maybe we can hold some fundraising events, like the soccer day. We can have something sim ilar at one of the parks and we can say you pay your fee for this and it goes toward this park, suggested Ms. Bishara. Voted to approve a green and blue logo for the group, passing on a brown and green logo that matched the Shoals Park signage. I dont want to get pigeonholed thinking we have to match the Shoals sign, said Paul Talbert. We have Shoals. I recognize these colnatural environment Shoals represents, but we are also not a forestry division. RAB member David Crawford agreed, as did the others. I like adding some color and light to it, said Mr. Crawford. Learned the boat ramp monly called the Boy Scout camp, will be closed July 21 and 22 for water rescue and dive training by the Macclenny Fire Department and Florida Wildlife Commission. County manager Kennie Downing made the announcement and added the county is seeking a grant to rebuild the retaining wall and make other improve ments to the park. She said the county applied last year but didnt make the cut, so the grant application this year will be ranked higher as a repeat re quest. Other improvements planned include a parking area, signs and a fishing area. Mr. Lee ended the meet ing by thanking fellow board members for their time and Recreation is a very important, especially for our young people these days who are being left out. If thats less trouble theyll get into ... I want to commend you for the job you do and all the hours you spend, he said.RECREATION ADVISORY BOARD rfnntbb b AC REPAIR SPECIALnbANY AIR CONDITIONING REPAIRSPlus tax, if applicable.

Page 4 T B C P ursday, July 19, 2018MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF One item on the agenda of last weeks Macclenny City Commission meeting was a replay of previous meet ings each year dealing with the same subject: whether property taxes should be increased to raise additional revenue for a new budget or kept at the same rate. And the same conclusion was reached this year. The board voted July 10 to tentatively raise the tax rate, or millage, recommended by City Manager Phil Rhoden in case an emergency situation should arise, necessi tating additional revenue to address it. But Mr. Rhoden said he was confident a higher tax rate would not become necessary and he assured commissioners that he had every intention of lowering it back to the current rate before final adoption of the budget for 2018-19, which begins October 1. Once the tentative rate is set, Mr. Rhoden explained, We can lower it but we cant go up. The intent is to bring the budget in at 3.6 mills. The city tax rate for years has remained 3.6 mills $3.60 for every $1,000 of taxable valuation after being temporarily set at a higher rate for a month or so and then brought back to the lower rate. State law requires local taxing authorities to report the tentative rate for the upcoming fiscal year to the tax collectors office in early August, prior to the city commissions next meeting, which is why the matter was dealt with last week. After the city manager and budget director Melissa Thompson explained the procedure, Commissioner Sam Kitching moved to raise the rate tentatively to 3.9 mills, or $3.90 for every $1,000 of taxable valuation, which would generate an estimated $70,000 in additional revenue. Commissioner Danny Norton seconded the motion but added quickly: Its just a formality. This is not a firm vote for raising taxes. Mr. Kitching said he was comfortable with the decision because the board has done it in the past and never had to go that high. Mayor Mark Bryant summed up the boards action succinctly: Hope for the best but plan for the worst. Under Floridas Truth in Millage (TRIM) statute, the city commission may choose a millage rate between 3.5391 and 4.8872 by majority vote next year, whereas anything above 4.8872 would require a two-thirds vote. The 3.6 millage rate would yield an estimated $894,746 next year, which is $57,585 more than last year due to an increase in new construction and property valuations citywide. A 3.9 rate would bring in about $969,308. In other business last week the commission: Received a 2017 audit presented by Greg Lyons of Lyons and Lyons Certified Public Accountants in Macclenny indicating that the city was on pretty firm finan cial ground. In what Mr. Lyons termed a clean opinion report, meaning no problems were found, the audit revealed Macclennys net position, as a whole, improved and debt was reduced about $240,000 and the city operated within its budget. However, the audit did point out a continuing deficiency in internal controls previously reported in other audits related to a limited number of city hall personnel handling financial transactions as well as records accounting for those transactions. To the extent possible, given available personnel, steps should be taken to segregate employee duties so no one individual has access to both physical assets and the related accounting records or all phases of a transaction, the audit stated. Our audit did not reveal any significant errors or ir regularities resulting from this lack of separation of duties and responsibilities. However, we feel it is important you are made aware of this condition. During his presentation, Mr. Lyons stated that with the limited staff, you guys do a great job in a very efficient manner. He also said that while the possibility always exists that weak inter nal controls could lead to errors and irregularities, the audit revealed none. In the citys response on the last page of the audit, Mr. Rhoden reiterated previous responses to the same deficiency: We continue to recognize that this is an ongoing weakness common for small agencies. As stated in previous years, we will continue to monitor and implement additional controls to help avoid undetected errors and possible fraud. Another recommenda tion in the audit was that the city consider and evaluate the costs and benefits of improving internal controls relative to the financial reporting process to achieve an enhanced ability to monitor its financial position on an ongoing basis. To that point, the city manager responded that the city has continued to train key accounting personnel responsible for preparing financial statements and through the assistance of professional oversight, we will continue to attempt to minimize the adjustments by our auditors to the financial statements. After the board accepted the audit report Commissioner Danny Norton said he was rather proud to know that the city was financially sound, particularly its water and sewer utility department, what with all the problems associated with maintaining an old, deteriorating system with frequent costly emergency repairs. Mayor Bryant agreed and offered his own observation: When you think about the World War I-ish pipes under our feet, to look this good on an audit is remarkable. Mr. Lyons said the city should be proud, noting that 2017 was a pretty good year for the City of Macclenny, financially speaking. Approved a memorandum of agreement between the city and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity in the implemen tation of the Rural Area of Opportunity (RAO), for merly the Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC). Baker County and the City of Macclenny are within the North Central RAO, along with 13 other counties and municipalities eligible to receive state funding grants to foster economic development.

It totaled some $58.7 million, up about 8 percent from the current year. That scares me a little bit, commented school board additional money wisely. Youre very tight with things, Ms. Weeks told the de partment head. The proposed 2018-19 budget consists of some $44.5 million in the general fund, up from $42.7 million this year. Theres $6.4 million proposed in special revenue largely federal money for school meals and other programs but also nearly $1 million in fund balance which is up from about $4.7 million this year. The debt service budget would increase by some $200,000 to $2.5 million. About $5.2 million is planned for capital projects, which is about $1 million more than the current year. In the general fund, the additional cash was largely allocated to classrooms. The instructional budget rose about $800,000 and the pupil services budget increased by more than $600,000. The same evening the school board also approved a series of raises and bonuses for district employees as part of new three-year union contracts with the teacher and school-related employees unions. wage increase and a one-time $200 bonus in addition to a tively skipping one step on the schedule. would be added to each step on the annual pay-raise schedule. The board also increased the advanced degree supple ments slightly, raised the supplement for Youth Power club sponsor supplements by $75 to $300 and hiked the education support professional employee of the year bonus by $100. The capital outlay budget, meanwhile, was extensive. It featured $200,000 for various health and safety re pairs, $500,000 to buy land for a new school to replace Keller Intermediate School, $800,000 for new chillers at the high school and $200,000 to re-roof the technology building at the middle school, among many other smaller projects. While the vast majority of the budget is funded through state and federal dollars, the local portion coming from property taxes was proposed at roughly $7 million, or about 12 percent of the total budget. The school board set the tentative millage, or property tax, rate at 6.266 mills, or about $6.26 per $1000 of taxable property value. Thats 2.2 percent less than the current year and would generate about $80,000 less in revenue. The next budget hearing is scheduled for July 30. In other business this week, the school board: Approved insurance premiums for the 2018-19 plan The premiums decreased 2 percent. The savings were passed to employees with the exception of $1.12 on single coverage, which decreased the monthly board portion from $554.4o to $553.28, reads Ms. Richardsons memo to the board. The new single rate for the least expensive plan will have a zero cost for employees. not contribute to health coverage. Ms. Richardson told the board last year there was no increase in premiums so the decrease this year was wonderful. Its very rare, she said. The increase for dental coverage, however, was passed onto employees. It rose less than $4 for individuals. We had a wellness program we started for the last couple of years and its working very well, said Ms. Richardson, noting that one employee lost more than 100 pounds.

In the decade or so since the undulating 18-hole course shut down, it has transformed into a self-seed ed dense pine forest with no visible clues from CR 23A and Miltondale Rd. border ing it to the east and west. It was initially set for a second life as a residential development, but that nev part to putting greens and tees treated for decades with pesticides. Much of that soil ally transported to the New owners virtually abandoned it, and ceased paying prop erty taxes in 2011. Since that time, an entity named CSAT Limited and based in Monticello, FL has ponied up over a half-mil lion dollars in back taxes purchased via delinquent tax sale. tor Amy Dugger in late May issued a Certification of Tax Deed Application, and calculated back taxes and accompanying charges at $562,650. Should owner-of-record Golf View properties LLC come up with that sum by the September date, it would re-take possession. Thats not likely, said local real estate broker Tommy Rhoden, one of the Golf View principals, so the property will likely go up for auction on the courthouse steps on a date set after the September tax deed sale. Several unsuccessful efforts were made to contact CSAT at a location listed in Florida corporate records, Miller Accounting in Monticello, to ascertain whether any plan is contemplated to develop the old golf course sited on the largest and most desirable tract of land remaining in the Macclenny-Glen St. Mary axis. According to the tax collector, the property has an assessed value of $2,272,596 on the 2017 tax roll. Other than Mr. Rhoden, other partners in the LCC are Ron Turbeville of Lake City, Tommy Dorman, Todd Knabb and William R. Rhoden. The mortgage holders listed are BB&T Bank in Jacksonville and the former Mercantile Bank in Macclenny.

They cant pay [a rent-to-own bill] until the next payday because they dont have any money, he said. So to me, it seemed like the best investment to open up Vision Loans to help those customers out who need that extra money, maybe to go on vacation in the summertime or for a Christmas gift or something like that.

Page 8 T B C P ursday, July 19, 2018 I guess to some its been apparent for some time: there was no way the county jail and real es tate occupied by the Baker County Sherever going to debt without endorsement by the county commission. That happened on July 3 when the board agreed to come to the aid of BCDC (soon to be named BCCMC Baker County Corrections Management Corp.) and commit public funds to bail out the non-profit should it be in danger of defaulting on a USDA loan that is not certain, but likely, to be approved. BCCMC is far from out of the woods as it assumes a newly structured debt of $36-plusmillion over a 30-year term. Its a safe bet that no one on either the presently will be around wont remember being involved. In the meantime is what counts, both from the standpoint of having a place to house county prisoners health. The largest land mine, so to speak, in the path of seeing this indebtedness through, is, of course, the of federal inmates, the major source of revenue. No one knows in 2018 what that will look like in 2028. Will there be ICE inmates? Will there be ICE at be there from other federal, or perhaps, state sources? Might we be able to take in inmates from other counties? The answers to these questions are key to the revenue stream that will be needed to service the USDA debt and avoid a crisis that would all of the sudden drag a future county commission into the quick sand. The endorsement crafted by county attorney Rick Komando expressly prohibits use of ad valorem tax revenues should that come about, but does commit future commissions to pay with available funds to make up shortfalls. The provision reads thus ly: all revenues of the county derived from any source whatsoever [other than property taxes] which are legally available to make the payments but only after provisions have been made by the county for payment of services and programs which are for essential public purposes affecting the health, welfare and safety of the inhabitants of the county, and general governmental obligations of the county or which are legally mandated by applicable law. Unless Baker Countys tax base zooms skyward in a major way in coming decades, what would be left over to assist BCCMC in a crisis isnt a pot of money. Each fiscal year, and this year is no exception, county commissioners find themselves facing expenditures well over anticipated revenues. Hence the budget cutting rituals each summer. One has to assume USDA knows that, but will accept that language as the bare minimum it will consider as an endorsement. And as many of us learn over a business career, when you are forced to go hat in hand to the person with the money, that person makes the rules. Its a fact of life that both lenders and borrowers know, and thats why theres been a school of thought all along that the county commission was heading toward an endorsement of BCDCs debt all along. So be it. Many believed, yours truly included, a decade ago that promises of not a penny of taxpayer money would be needed to fund a new jail were just, well, vapor. So the county commission, faced with the sole alternative of going it alone and wading back into a fiscal morass trying to finance another jail, did on July 3 what it had to do. The board had little other option than to sign on with BCDCs noble effort to extricate itself from the high-interest bonded indebtedness that from the start has been pretty much a disaster. As board members indicated during that meeting, its not a decision they wanted to make, but one in which they had truly no other option. Sometimes those hold your nose decisions are the only course. As I listened to the news last week I was increasingly depressed. More and more, the world seemed to be fracturing, with name calling and traditional alliances questioned. I kept thinking, Why cant we just work together? The only thing I found reassuring was the example of the rescue of the 12 Thai boys and their coach from gether some of the best cave divers and rescue personnel from around the world. The boys were members of a Thai youth soccer team trapped by monsoon rains while exploring the cave them farther and farther back into the cave until they were perched on a dry ledge. With very little food or water they were feared lost. Rescue personnel, led by the Thai Seal Team, frantically explored the huge cave. Finally, a pair of British rescue divers found the boys and their coach. They had been subsisting on what food they had brought with them and rainwater. The rescue attempt was hampered by high water and the fact that most of the boys couldnt swim. It became urgent with the fear that monsoon rains ing even worse. led them out one by one. It took over two hours of swimming to rescue each boy and the divers were only able to pull out four boys a day. At one point they had to shimmy past a ledge with only 15 inches of clearance. Im sure you followed this rescue attempt. It has galvanized the news channels. The top Buddhist monks in Thailand prayed at the site. There were prayer vigils around the world in churches of all denominations. It was a unifying force in a troubled world. That made me think. Why is it that it takes a catastrophe for us to set aside compassion? At the site, countries who are natural adversaries, like China and the U.S., worked side by side to rescue these boys. The boys have been remarkably resilient and have won the hearts of even the most cynical. After they were found they wrote notes to their terriand dad were busy planning his birthday party. Another gave a list of foods he wanted when he escaped. Another wanted updates on the World Cup and others simply told their parents how much they loved and missed them. Jaded news anchors teared up as to safety. I admit to getting a little moist eyed as I imagined them being reunited with their parents. Its easy to sympathize with the feelings of those distraught parents. And yet we still have close to three thousand children separated from their own distraught parents here in the U.S. when my own children ran ahead on a trip to Washington D.C. and jumped in a hotel elevator, only to have the doors close before I could get there. Luckily, they were smart enough to get back on and ride to the bottom, but that didnt stop my heart from pounding out of my chest until I had them safely with me. I cant imagine how those families felt. Interestingly, as each of the boys came out of the cave and was whisked to the hospital the families chose to stay together until the last of the boys and the coach were freed. I dont know if its a cultural thing, but I dont think I could have been that out. Id have walked to that hospital if I had to. Its nice to see the world united. Its great to see dozens of countries working together for a common goal. I just wish that it didnt take a disaster to help us remember that we are all human, that we are all connected in our humanity. The boys are still in the hospital receiving medical treatment but are expected to be released sometime this week. The rescuers have packed up their will be just a memory. Wouldnt it be nice though if it had a little bit more about one another? Then it might just have been worth it.

When a group of local youths signed up for the 4-H-sponsored life skills camp, they expected to be exposed to how to grocery cation. One thing they learned, but never expected, was how to meet a governor. They found out when Florida Governor Rick Scott popped in on them the morning of July 12 at the Ag Center while on a campaign swing through northeast Florida. One of his stops was Macclenny where he also met with an impromptu group of business and government representatives. The governor, in his last terms, shook hands with the campers, their teacher Shaina Spann, extension director Alicia Lamborn and assistant Cindy Tomas. He then spoke to them about the importance of learning the skills being taught that week at the camp, and of his childhood growing up in public housing. During the week-long classes, Ms. Spann and others took the students through the drills on skills theyll need as adults. Among them: coupon shopping, writing checks, washing dishes and laundry, out a job application, table setting and table manners, and even folding a fitted sheet. On the third day they learned basic car maintenance, proper tools for home maintenance and conducted on Thursday mock job interviews with Joel Barber, manager of the Macclenny Gibson-McDonald furniture store. Students attending included Tanner Bridges, Will Nickles, Katie Small, Kenu Turk II, Claire Nickles, Keelie Turk, Angelina Troshyna, Montana McGainley and Nathan Wilson.

ursday, July 19, 2018 T B C P Page 11FAMILY FEATURES Nearly 4 out of 10 Amer icans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes, and it remains the second-leading cause of death for Americans, but nearly half of all cancer cases can be prevented. Research from the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) shows that diet, exercise and weight play a critical role in cancer prevention. Making changes in what you eat, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight have strong and clear links to your risk for cancer, said Alice Bender, MS, RDN and director of nutrition programs at AICR. We know from decades of research and a thorough review of the science that there are simple things we can all do to reduce our risk. To live a cancer-preventive lifestyle, consider taking these 10 steps recommendat AICR: 1. Be a healthy weight. Higher body fat can be a cause of many cancers. Try to stay at a healthy weight and avoid weight gain as you get older. 2. Be physically active. Incorporate moderate physical activity into your daily life through steps like walking more and sitting less. 3. Eat a diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans. Make these foods a major part of your diet. 4. Limit consumption of fast foods and other processed foods high in fat, starches or sugars. Cut down on processed foods to help control calorie intake and maintain a healthy weight. 5. Limit consumption of red and processed meat. Eat no more than three portions of red meat per week, and little if any processed meat. 6. Limit consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks. Dont drink sugar-sweet ened drinks, which contribute to weight gain. Choose water instead, when possi ble. 7. Limit alcohol consumption. For preventing cancer, its best not to drink alcohol. 8. Do not use supple ments for cancer prevention. Aim to meet nutritional needs through diet alone. 9. For mothers, breastfeed your baby, if you can. Breastfeeding is good for both mother and baby. 10. After a cancer diagnosis, follow these recommendations, if you can. Cancer survivors are encouraged to continue following these guidelines. Refraining from smok ing, avoiding other exposure to tobacco and limiting sun exposure are also important in reducing cancer risk. Because it can be hard to make lifestyle changes, AICR aims to help people adopt healthier behav Cancer Health Check, a tool that shows people how their lifestyle stacks up against known cancer risks and recommends changes that can improve health.

No matter your age, there is no better time than now to start. To help do just that, consider these tips from the Administration for Community Living: Be Well If you dont usually exercise, choose a low-impact activity that you can do a little at a time. Walk for 10 minutes in the morning, sign up for a tai chi class or learn gentle stretches, for example. Remember, it is wise to consult a health care provider before beginning an exercise routine. Exercising is less of a chore when you do it with people you enjoy. Gather a group of friends or join a class. Some senior and community centers even offer free or low-cost options. Good nutrition is vital. Keep an honest record of what you eat. If you have a condition like diabetes, consult your doctor before changing your diet. Nutritionists can be excellent resources, whether you have special dietary needs or not. Eating healthy foods and staying active may reduce physical health risks, and you also can exercise your mind by reading, playing games, taking a class or simply being social. Reinvent Yourself Second or even third careers can be personally and mine whether you have the skills needed for something new. If not, seek out classes or training, and remember sistance is available. Express yourself through the arts. Learn to paint or shoes, take an acting class or bonus, studies show the arts can improve brain health. Keep expanding your knowledge and growing by learning a new language or taking a computer class. Or, if youre more an adventurous type, maybe youve always wanted to travel and discover other cultures. Give Back Consider using your ex perience to serve others. Volunteers meet a range of community needs, from mentoring at-risk youth and providing job training to helping families recover from disasters. Find opportunities by visiting local or ganizations or charities. Pick and schedule service activities that match your skills and interests. If you are handy, assisting with a tion may be most rewarding. If you enjoy working with kids, contact a local school to talk about ways you can help. If you want to help others more informally, consider helpful tasks like driving neighbors to appointments, babysitting for working parents or tutoring kids in your neighborhood. If you are a member of a spiritual community or club, ask if there are outreach programs that need assistance. Increasing your well-be ing physically, mentally and emotionally can be made simpler by finding sonality and interests. Visit oam.acl.govformation and resources to engage at every age.

It was like they played together for years. Broughton had taken another team the 12-year-old North Florida Scorpions to the Cooperstown tournament in 2017, but a roster. After posting an ad online, Broughton got in touch with Todd Wood out of Oklahoma City, whose son Alexander Wood joined the roster.

Alexander Wood connected with home run. The homer also scored Ian Vickers, who hit an RBI double one batter before.

Elsewhere in the park, Will Keinath and Matthew ing white paint to a wooden swing set beam. They were just a few of the roughly dozen BCHS Wildcat football players who volunteered for sev eral hours the morning of July 13 to clean up and improve the park in Sanderson. The team mowed, edged, sprayed weeds and paint ed the basketball and other park equipment in an effort to give Jonesville Park a facelift. It just shows how we care about our community and we know they care about us, Burnsed said. We like them backing us up on Friday nights so we back them up around the community. Recreation Advisory Board member David Crawford reached out to Wildcat head coach Jamie Rodgers earlier in the summer about the opportunity. Coach Rodgers, and the players, both jumped at the chance to give back to the community. Mr. [Crawford] wanted 10 or 12 guys we thought we could do it with. I had 10 minutes, coach Rodgers said. ... These are guys that are our best football players a lot of them, he later added. ... In theory, its probably not really the coolest thing to do, but when youre leaders and your best football players are doing it, it turns into the cool thing pretty quick. Improving the countys various parks was a point of emphasis the RAB identiford, who is also director of the school systems auxiliary services, said RAB board ent parks and were unhappy with the conditions. As a result, the board members, in essence, each adopted a park. We have a small recre ation department in Baker County, Mr. Crawford said. Its limited. The board made a decision that they wanted to try and help in a meaningful way. Mr. Crawford said Jonesty Road 127, was probably in better shape than most of our parks because a group in the area is dedicated to its upkeep. Jonesville, and all the countys parks, are vital to local youths, Mr. Crawford said. When I was principal there were a lot of great young men and women who used this facility. We have a lot of great young men and women today, he said. ... We want to take them away from at-risk activities, and we think having good, in viting, healthy parks is a big part of that. But the hours of cleanup, mowing and painting didnt made an impact on the players, coach Rodgers said. Its hard to be a leader if said. The Jonesville cleanup isnt the only act of com munity service the football team has planned for this summer. The seniors are also scheduled in the coming weeks to help out a person in need with lawn and home care. Were starting to do it (community service) a lot now, Burnsed said.
