Page 2 T B C P ursday, January 5, 2012 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR email@example.comJustin Luke of Sanderson got a raise this week along with the estimated 250,000 minimum wage workers in Florida. As of January 1, the states hourly minimum wage increased 36 cents to $7.67 for non-tipped employees and to $4.65 for those receiving tips like waitresses and pizza delivery drivers. Mr. Luke, 20, began driving for Dominos Pizza on South 6th Street in Macclenny three weeks ago. Its not too bad. It helps out, he said of the raise, which will mean about $750 more a year. Mr. Luke said the weekly bump about $15 falls short of the $20 he needs to gas up for a shift, but its another day I can go to work and not have to worry so much about having enough gas to get through the day. Mr. Luke said most of the time customers tip, but sometimes they dont, and the extra miles on his SUV are also a consideration. Hes tallied 800 miles pizza delivery. If you pay close attention to what your doing and how you spend your money, you can make it work, he said. But were really appreciative of [the raise]. Reactions to the increase from local residents, gleaned from comments on The Press Facebook page, were mixed. Some like Talena Broughman of Sanderson think the raise is too small. You cannot buy a gallon of milk or loaf of bread or two gallons of gas with that, she commented. Others thought the minimum wage hike was unfair to higher wage earners or government employees, many of whom have not seen raises in recent years. Macclennys Julie Hines is employed at Northeast Florida State Hospital. While she said the minimum wage jump was not large enough, she also noted the last annual salary increase she received was about $1000 some four years ago. And taxes took half of it, said Ms. Hines. Still others feared that raising the cost of labor would lead to higher prices for goods and services produced by minimum wage workers. Is everyone going to get a raise? No. So why should the government dictate what companies are required to pay employees? They shouldnt, said Michael Wilcox, also of Sanderson. Raising the minimum wage will only For at least one restaurant owner, however, the higher minimum wage will not mean a pricing adjustment. Our menus have already been set so that wont affect us at all, said George Elias of Sixth Street Steakhouse, which employs about 10 waitresses earning minimum wage. In our case, well just have to pliers. We try to control costs that way, he said. Mr. Elias expects to see some increase in his vendors prices, but nothing drastic. If you keep them in check like I do I have three suppliers and play them off each other they cant take advantage of you, he said. Mr. Elias kept his menu prices steady last summer too, when the minimum wage rose 6 cents an hour. Florida law requires the states Department of Economic Opportunity to calculate a new minimum wage each year on September 30, based on the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index during the previous year. The CPI increased 4.9 percent between August 2010 and August 2011. Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment in 2004 to establish the states minimum wage, something Macclenny resident Anna Bell believes is a necessity. If the free market were left to decide wages, people would starve, she commented on The Press Facebook page. The people out there that work for minimum wage are taken for granted mum wage: $4.20 an hour. So its only gone up $3.50 in 20 years! Wow.

The current lease is for five years, according to court records, with an option for two extensions of likened time periods. Mr. Rhoden is listed as guarantor for the corporate owner Macclenny Bar-B-Q. According to the Florida Department of Revenue, he is also in default dating back to 1999 for $7626 in unpaid sales tax and fees. The DOR warrant was filed in circuit court here in October.

She also indicated that remaining workers have had hours trimmed due to sagging business. county must maintain a permit for the facility with the state. The permit stipulates the county must monitor the site through regular water quality testing, the results of which must be forwarded to state regulators. Mr. Darabi has applied for a permit renewal on the countys behalf and asked that the county be allowed to limit monitoring to the four new wells and two background wells. That would eliminate at least a dozen monitoring sites, which Mr. Fletcher said would mean a fully we get the gas monitoring reduced or eliminated, too, he said. Gas monitoring is performed to detect air contamination. Water sampling was conducted four times a year until 2009, when testing was reduced to twice annually to help the county cut expenses. Mr. Fletcher said he expects a response from state regulators regarding the permit renewal application and the August, 2011 sampling results within the next month.

No more Christmas parties, shopping days or holi day baking to do. I can honestly say this Christ mas has been one of the best yet in my house. There was plenty of parties that allowed us lots of visiting time with family mem bers, more food than I should have eaten and lots of presents. As my child will be quick to tell you, Im one of those parents who will not allow my child a cell phone yet, nor will I in the near future. He also resents the fact that I have set the parental controls on his television, X-Box Live ac count and Facebook. Although I know hes technically too young for Facebook, I monitor it regu larly and my e-mail account is linked to it, so anything he changes or people he interacts with, I see it. Plus I log in and cull out his friends every so of ten too. As you can imagine, a 10-year-old is not too happy about his mom having this much input into his private life, but as his mom I feel this is my right and responsibility as a parent. This is one of those responsi bilities more parents should take seriously. With so many young children having their own lap tops, tablets and smartphones, the dangers are everywhere! Not only from pedophiles and murderers, but gangs and other to recognize dangers and avoid them, but I feel it doesnt hurt to make it as hard as I possibly can for them to come near my child. I dont do it to be a control freak; I do it because I love him. He doesnt always understand it, but he lives with my decisions because he has no choice. Im sure in the long-run hell under stand. With the dangers in the world today, parents can never let down their guard. Parenting is not a popularity contest. Its a job, one I strive to be good at. Jessica Prevatt is a married mother of two boys and the advertising/production director at The Baker County Press. It is around 6 am on January 2, 2012 as I write this column. Why in the world am I up so early on a day that is supposed to be a holiday where all I do is sit and watch football and eat junk? Simple. My good luck 2012 meal didnt agree with me. My wife is convinced that eating collard greens and black-eyed peas on New Years Day will bring me good fortune. The only way I can explain this superstition is that from that moment on, the year can only get better. Other good luck foods include grapes (at least 12 for each month of the year), long lo mein noodles, lentils and pome granates. Like everyone else, I am hoping that the new year is better than the last and that the Mayans were mistaken. Many people were happy to see 2011 walk out the door, what with the economy tanking and wars and rumors of wars. I always try to be optimistic and hope that things will get better. Here are a few things I will not miss and that I hope dont make an appearance in 2012. Somehow, though, I dont think I ate enough black-eyed peas to make that hap pen. Im tired of her. I was tired of Madonna in the 1990s and now we have her clone 20 years later. Its a pretty sad state of affairs when I feel nostalgic about Madonna sing ing Vogue in her cone bra. people think that they will become super heroes by owning one. From lightning striking a tree and leav ing a cell phone glowing inside (which, by the way is a homage to the Robert Red ford baseball movie The Natural ), to a James Bond-like character battling his way through villains to get the new Droid to safety, Im just tired of it. Heres a new sign of the cell phone apocalypse. My daughters boyfriend, Aar on Summers, and his sister got waterproof cases for their cell phones. You can take the cell phone in the pool with you. Or, as Aaron said, Now my sister can talk to her friends while shes in the shower. Arrgghh! Now even the shower isnt safe from phone calls, Inter net browsing and texting. If you look really closely at that Mayan calendar, youll see that one of their hieroglyphics looks surprisingly like an iPhone. word about any Kardashian. Any of em. From the mar riage problems of Kim to Khloe to whoever the rest of them are can just go away. They dont act, they dont sing, they dont well I dont really know what they do except be rich and on the cover of magazines for doing nothing. iPads and Nooks. Perhaps its the fact that I am a librarian, but I love the feel of a book in my hand. I dont want an other screen; I have too many of them as it is. Ill be interested to see if there is a study somewhere down the line dealing with what these de vices do to our eyesight. al rating? Thats ridiculous. If they were a televi sion show theyd have been cancelled long ago. We the people should be able to give them a vote of no confidence, although I guess thats what elections are for. The fact that they can justify not being able to reach a compromise on anything because of par ty politics is laughable. If it didnt make you want to cry instead. I blame both parties and the Tea Party. We are so polarized that everyone seems to have forgotten that the country and the people come first. I would like to say that I wouldnt miss any of this bunch of presidential candi dates, but were going to see them all through 2012. people do every day. You can make log ging, panning for gold, hunting alligators, making cupcakes, running a pawn shop or tattoo parlor, trucking, any number of other jobs seem dramatic, but why would you want to do it? At this rate well get Clean Freaks, about window washers or Bug Men about guys working for a pest con trol company. In short, Im not real sorry to wave goodbye to 2011. I just hope we have some thing better in store for 2012. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ROBERT GERARD rrrfDear Editor: I want to express my sincere appreciation to Bobby Steele and staff of Walmart Distribu tion Center for the wonderful job they do for senior citizens in Baker County. At Thanksgiving and Christmas, Mr. Steele and his em ployees donate, cook and serve turkeys and hams to our seniors at the Baker County Council on Aging. The food donation is so large that we are able to send meals to our home bound seniors as well. Every year Mr. Steele and his employees come to our center with smiles on their faces ready to serve. In the busiest season of the year they take time to come and share in these joyous holi days. Without Mr. Steeles gener ous donation of food and service, we would not be able to feed the number we do. From the executive board and staff at BCCOA, Happy New Year to all.Jackie Wright Acting executive director Baker County Council on AgingDear Editor: The Castle Doctrine was used to murder my son Joshua Brandon Fish. This law removes the responsibility to retreat. With no witnesses, this law can be abused. Dead men cant talk. I am writing this because I need to set the record straight from the point of view of Bran dons mother. People often ask me, because of what they have read in The Press, if I am still with Doug [Kilgo Ms. Fishs then-boyfriend initially charged then cleared in the shooting death]. I am blown away by that question. I have sat back and processed things over the last six months and have concluded that Frank Doug Kilgo is very intelligent, cold-blooded and cal culated. The right, responsible thing to do was leave my residence before carrying out such a crime. He sat behind a privacy fence with a gun at my house and shot my son, not in the foot or leg, but in the chest. Neighbors who were outside heard no arguing, only a single gun shot. The incident was avoidable. Friends of Bran don who were with him that day said he called and left messages (messages deleted) that he wanted to come over to get something to eat. He was hungry! He was also bringing back a gas can that he had gotten from my house to put gas in his truck. He did not know what was waiting for him. Doug was waiting for him while Momma was away. Calculated and cold. The Baker County Press reported the last week of December that my son Brandon had previous altercations with Mr. Kilgo, two of which resulted in severe beatings. Only two in cidents occurred over an 11-year period, neither of which were severe enough to result in the need for medical treatment nor a restraining order. Doug should have separated himself from the situation, but I guess he had it made living with don was out of the picture. My sons life was used against him in the end. He did things he shouldnt have and also has been blamed for things that he didnt do. He had a drug problem but I am convinced he had a bet ter heart and conscience than Doug Kilgo, and I Debbie Fish MacclennyDear Editor: I have debated about writing a letter to the editor since June, but the editors of The Press have left me no choice. My nephew Brandon Fish was premeditatedly murdered by Frank Douglas Kilgo on June 18, and my nephew never severely or brutally beat Mr. Kilgo. There were two altercations between them, and nei ther time did Mr. Kilgo go for medical treatment nor did Mr. Kilgo get a restraining order against my nephew. Mr. Kilgo lied to the sheriffs department. He threatened to shoot Brandon between the eyes, and there were witnesses to the incident. Brandon Fish told Deputy Ben Anderson standing in my front yard that Doug Kilgo threatened to shoot him. Brandon was shot in the center of the heart with the same gun that Doug Kilgo threatened to shoot him with. My family knows that Doug Kilgo lied about the murder of Brandon Fish. Brandon left behind four children ages four years to one month. The people of Baker County need to realize that the lives of his family changed forever on June 18. His family members are the victims, not the Kilgo family. Print the truth and not the lies that Doug Kilgo told the sheriffs department. We have innocent babies who are fatherless because of the choice Doug Kilgo made that day. Mr. Kilgo can lie to himself, but he cannot pre-meditated murder of Joshua Brandon Fish and for leaving four children without a father.Tammy Fish Glen St. Mary rfnfff Dear Editor: Im sick and tired of hear ing how society has labeled Dr. Charles Scarborough a pill doc tor. Every time you go to your doctor for a cold or a pain, you receive a prescription or two be fore you leave. That tells me ev ery doctor is a pill doctor. Dr. Charles has helped many people in this community for years people you dont see or hear about in the media. Some of those people are my family members. Each time on our monthly visits we were questioned and examined by Dr. Charlie, and he answered our questions about our condition and medication. was his staffs fault, and it not only hurt Dr. Charlie but it hurt his true patients who were there to receive help they needed, not to sell their pills. Dr. Scarborough saw patients even when they fell on hard times and were unable to pay many doctors these days willing to do that. Since this [his license sus happened, we have been to two doctors who, when they heard his name, turned us away. An ar ticle in The Press states that Pro Care Drugs is tied to Dr. Charlie. be it. Many of his patients used Pro Care due to out-of-pocket prices. Dont you go where you can get a cheaper price? This has not stopped the selling of pills on the streets; it stopped a lot of people with no insurance from getting help, and they are now looking for other doctors. Carolyn M.

Cory Lord, 21, is charged with attacking Brittni Sayles, 22, that afternoon about 2 oclock in the bedroom of their residence during an argument that began over her decision to leave him. Deputy Robert Simpkins said he observed redness and bruising about Ms. Sayles arms and back that she said resulted from being thrown to a bed and striking a dresser when both she and her husband fell to the floor. The officer noted that Mr. Lord had two blackened eyes and a facial laceration at the hands of his wife, who said she was defending herself. Mr. Lord insisted he grabbed his wife in selfdefense. Police were alerted to the disturbance after Deputy Simpkins stopped Earl Lord Sr., the husbands father, speeding near Interstate 10 and SR 228 in Macclenny. Mr. Lord said he was hurrying to his sons residence amid a threat that Ms. Sayles father was en route armed with a firearm. He never showed up when the officer was there. Court records do not reflect that the younger Lord is on house arrest as stated by the deputy, but show him to be on a one-year probation for drug possession, disorderly conduct and possession of paraphernalia. He has a record of mostly traffic offenses, and currently one pending drunk driving charge. In another domestic violence case, this one minutes into the new year, Joseph Mercado, 36, of Keystone Heights was arrested for striking Carly Brent, 27, with a cell phone and slapping her at the womans residence on Plantation Rd. south of Glen. Deputy Patrick McGauley interviewed Ms. Brent at a neighbors residence where she went to call police just after midnight. She said Mr. Mercado had been drinking wine for hours and was armed with a knife. He initially refused to exit the residence and was described by the deputy as highly intoxicated. His report noted redness and swelling on both sides of Ms. Brents face. leging battery was filed on Cassandra Amerson, 28, of Glen for slapping bar patron Lori Crawford, 48, of Macclenny during a confrontation about an hour and a half into the new year. Deputy Chad Montean noted both parties had been drinking at Macs Liquors in downtown Macclenny. The sheriffs department is looking into a north Baker County womans claim that her Chevrolet pickup was hijacked by two men early on New Years Day. Melissa Conner called police from her residence on Anne Rd. near Cuyler shortly after she said two white males standing in the right-of-way on Orbey Rhoden Rd. blocked her path about 5:30 am and attacked her before taking her truck. She told Deputy Jeremiah Combs both men were in their 20s and between 5-5, one wearing a grey hoodie and grey gloves, the other a dark hat. Ms. Conner said she was approached by the thinner suspect and punched in the face, and the second man with a heavier build pulled her out from the driver side door and struck her with a tire iron. She then said she broke free and ran back to her residence. Shortly after, officers found the 2000 pickup in a nearby vacant lot. Deputy Combs said it had damage to both side mirrors and a tire jack handle was missing. Later, Deputy Combs said he returned to Ms. Conners residence, where she informed him she had found a tire tool in the roadside brush near the crime scene. The officer noted clay on the shoes that she was wearing and she admitted to having them on when she returned to the scene. The officers report notes that he informed Ms. Conner her shoes matched the prints found in the area around the recovered truck, but she claimed she only returned to the crime scene. Ms. Conner told police she was going to nearby Altmans Store as is her habit when the incident took place. A store employee told Deputy Combs that Ms. Conner is a regular there in the morning, but usually between 7-8 oclock. A Macclenny man faces multiple charges after leading two county deputies on a high-speed chase of over two miles in north Baker County, much of it on unimproved tram roads. Johnathan Anderson, 20, was taken into custody after his 1997 Dodge pickup became bogged down in a ditch on an unnamed remote road north and west of Moccasin Circle north of Baxter. Police were called to a residence there after a disturbance between Brandon Hall of Sanderson and a juvenile male, age 17. While talking to Mr. Hall, Deputy Patrick McGauley said the pickup occupied by the juvenile and Mr. Anderson drove by, then sped up as he and Deputy Johnny Hodges gave chase. The officers at one point lost visual contact with the trucks taillights as Mr. Anderson accelerated to speeds above 70 mph on the unpaved surface dotted with sharp curves. The juvenile apparently exited the truck unseen by the officers, but his identity was known from the disturbance call. A criminal complaint was filed against him for resisting arrest without violence. Mr. Anderson was booked for reckless driving, fleeing police, driving on a suspended license, having no license tag and having an open container of alcohol. A rifle was found in the truck cab. In another reckless driving incident, Deputy Hodges arrested Stephanie Sowards, 43, of Sanderson after police received a complaint that she was northbound on CR 125 in the southbound lane the evening of December 26. Witness Christopher Miracle of Glen St. Mary said he observed Ms. Sowards 1995 Chevrolet Blazer run several vehicles off the road as he followed it heading north. Deputy Hodges spotted the SUV near the intersection with CR 127 as it continued in the opposite lane and stopped it about 7 pm. Ms. Sowards was booked for driving on a suspended license, reckless driving and failure to stay in a single lane. Passenger Ventura Rodriguez, 51, of Macclenny was charged with resisting arrest without violence for several times interfering with Deputy Hodges and unruly behavior when she was arrested. Two Baker County men were taken into custody the past week on warrants, one of them Seaf Rhoden, 48, of Baxter, sought under a federal indictment for growing marijuana. He was arrested at his Moccasin Creek Circle residence on December 28. Mr. Rhoden and two other men from the same neighborhood were arrested by county and state officers in September for growing nearly 1000 plants, most of them in Charlton County, GA. The others, J.N. Canaday, 65, and David Lee Stokes, 45, were already in custody and transferred from county jail by federal marshals. The second warrant was served on Todd Sark, 28, of Macclenny at an Eastwood Dr. residence the afternoon of December 30. He was wanted in Clay County for a probation violation. Police were called to investigate the theft of firearms in three separate incidents the past week, two from residences and the third from a pickup truck. Several fingerprints lifted from a front window may help determine who entered the residence of Jason Krazewski and Cathy Conrad on B.F. Finley Circle south of Olustee on December 28. A 9 mm pistol and .22 caliber rifle were taken from a closet, and a .357 magnum pistol from a night stand between the hours of 11 am-9:30 pm. Deputy Daryl Mobley said the second pistol and $70 in coins were discovered missing after the initial call the next day. There are suspects. was given the names of suspects in the neighborhood of Maple St. in Macclenny, where Freddie Reynolds reported on December 29 the theft of a 9 mm pistol from his garage. He last saw the weapon in late October, about the time the suspects were on the property. told Deputy Chris Walker that a .40 caliber pistol was taken from under the drivers seat of his 1997 Chevrolet pickup, likely when he went to two stores in the area on December 27 or the following day. Police arrested a Macclenny man for stealing $500 worth of tools from a US 90 wrecker service and garage where he works and pawning them to a Sanderson man for $50. Jon Theophile Jr., 39, admitted under questioning that he took the dozen-piece ratchet wrench set on December 27 but intended to reclaim it later and return it to Miracle Towing. Kirk Miracle, the garage owner, called police three days later when he heard about the missing tools. Deputy Shawn Bishara questioned the suspect and he initially denied involvement, then admitted taking the tools when he learned that the man he sold them to, Dean Holland, was returning to the garage with them. The wrenches were engraved with identifying numbers and letters. Mr. Holland told Deputy Bishara that Mr. Theophile approached him to hold the tools for $50 and initially was unaware they were stolen. He soon suspected they were and arranged to return them to the garage. He was not charged. Mr. Theophile was booked at county jail for felony grand theft. In other recent reports on property crimes: named estranged boyfriend William Davis, 41, of Glen St. Mary as the person who entered her residence on North Boulevard and took a ring valued at $193. She told Deputy Chris Walker she believes the ring was taken during the early morning hours of December 29 before she returned home. There was no sign of forced entry. She said Mr. Davis had earlier sent her a text message that he intended to take the ring. named by husband William Hand as the person who likely damaged a front window and four solar screens at his rental trailer on Ivy St. in Macclenny on New Years Eve or early New Years. He told Deputy Johnny Hodges that his 35-year-old wife was intoxicated and they argued that evening before he left about 6 oclock. ter the school district maintenance office during the Christmas break. Deputy Steven Smith said door glass was broken and a door warped from attempted prying at the Jonathan St. location. The attempt was discovered when an employee returned to work the morning of December 26. A Lake Butler woman was arrested for reckless driving after her vehicle ran through the busy intersection of South 6th St. and Lowder the afternoon of December 27 onto private property and struck a fence. The three other occupants of the vehicle, all female juveniles, told Deputy Steven Smith that driver Kora Seay, 18, of Lake Butler was sniffing or huffing keyboard duster spray just prior to the mishap at 2:51 pm. They had stolen the two aerosol cans found on the drivers side floorboard from Walmart earlier. Ms. Seay apparently blacked out at the wheel. The vehicle crossed busy 6th St. and careened east between Superior Cleaners and the office of physician A.B. Tecson, destroying four sections of a dividing fence in the process. There was no damage estimate. Ms. Seay and the occupants, ages 14, 15 and 16, were named in criminal complaints for shoplifting, and Deputy Smith said video surveillance at Walmart confirmed they stole the cans. The others are from Lake Butler as well.rfntbn bn br OUT OF COUNTY SUBSCRIBERS Fed up with your copy of The Press arriving late, or not at all? We have a cost-effective solution to your problem.

Ms. Martin was work ing as an assistant in the schools media center De cember 16 when she re ceived a surprise visit from BCMS principal Sherry Bar rett and school district Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson. The teen was shocked by the news of her award but quickly recovered. Her lan guage arts teacher Greta Elledge, however, who ar rived a few minutes after the news, was nearly over whelmed with excitement. Nobody deserves it more, she said, almost tearful as she hugged her student. I know this girls potential and now she has the vehicle to pursue it! Ms. Martin explained why she chose to write about Governor Fuller Warren. He was the one I was most familiar with, she said. He did a lot of things for Florida that helped the state with forestry and environmental issues. A model student, Ms. Martins favorite subject is reading. She received a perfect 500 score on the most recent FCAT reading tests and was the student with the highest Accelerated Reader points while a fourth grader at Keller Intermediate. In 2010 she was the school districts spelling to compete in the regional spell ing bee hosted by The Florida Times-Union. Her hobbies are playing vol leyball and dancing as a member of Christian Fellowship Temples Image Breakers team. She also loves caring for her many pets including a one-eyed gopher tor toise named Franklin. She hopes to work someday in countant. Ms. Martins winning essay: In January of 1949, Floridas 30th governor delivered his in augural address. Governor Full er Warren Stated, Today I begin carrying out the covenant that I made with the people during the campaign . Florida is faced with many terrific problems. They must be met and mastered. Governor Warren inherited many problems in our state, but this was no problem for him; he was a man of humble begin nings and a World War II veter an and was used to overcoming obstacles with hard work. Fuller Warren was born in Blountstown, Florida, on Octo ber 3, 1905, and he was one of seven children. He attended the local public school and went on to graduate from the University of Florida. In 1930, he received a law degree from Cumberland University. He served in the State House of Representatives in 1927 and 1939. In 1948 he be came Floridas governor. During his time in office, Governor Warren faced many challenges and celebrated great accomplishments. Free-grazing on Floridas highways was out lawed and thus reduced auto mobile accidents and fatalities. He also initiated plans for the Florida turnpike, established quality control for Florida citrus and started Floridas reforesta tion program. Of all his accom plishments the one that stands out is his efforts to save our states forests. By 1930, Floridas forests had been greatly depleted by companies that did not replant. Within just a few decades, the 19.2 million acres of pine forest had dwindled to 7.5 acres. Governor Warren reacted by starting the reforestation pro gram. Our forests were saved ever since that time in many different ways. Directly and in directly almost 200,000 jobs in Florida are a result of our for estry system and the forests con tribute around $6 billion annu ally to the states economy. Also Floridas forest lands creation of wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities. Why does governor War rens reforestation effort mean so much to me? I live in a rural community. Many residents of my county, including family members and friends, are em ployed in jobs that depend on a healthy forestry system. On a very personal level, I live in an area surrounded by forest lands. Every day of my life I get to witness and experience the habitat created by our forests. I start my day with birds calling to each other right outside my window. In addition, my states well-being is greatly reliant upon a forest system that helps with the pollution created by its and helps purify out water. In conclusion, I feel Gover nor Fuller Warren impacted our way. Thanks to his reforestation efforts, our state has a thriving forestry system that we enjoy today and that will still exist for future generations. Like me, Governor War ren was one of several children and attended public schools. He inspired me because of our similarities. If he can grow up to accomplish such lasting and monumental things, so can I. Woodlawn Kennels Quality Professional CareGROOMING 2594757 BOARDING ....... . . . . . . ...................

She was wearing a helmet.JOEL ADDINGTON NEWS EDITOR email@example.comThe Baker County Commission is very pleased with the job performance of its top staffer, County Manager C.J. Thompson, according to board members. Commissioners scored Mr. Thompor responsibilities using a five-point scale. The scores were then averaged to determine an overall assessment score. Three of the five commissioners, Mark Hartley, Gordon Crews and Jim my Anderson, gave the manager overall scores of four, while Commissioner Mi chael Crews turned in an overall score of 4.5. Commissioner Adam Giddens rated Mr. Thompsons overall performance at the highest level possible, which means that he consistently exceeded expecta tions. Scores of three were intended to show that Mr. Thompson met the commissioners expectations ing those expectations. The manager did not receive scores of one or two major improvement needed or some improvement needed, respectively in any area of the evaluations. County manager in recent history, said former coun ty commissioner Alex Robinson, who served on the board for 18 years before losing re-election in 2010. We never did it before, said Mr. Robinson. I think it shouldve been done in the past and its a good time to institute an evaluation process. For his part, Mr. Thompson said he also was pleased with the evaluations and that regardless of the results, reviews should always be viewed with a positive outlook as a way to continue to improve your job performance. In addition to the scoring, commissioners were given the opportunity to respond to a handful of ad ditional questions about the county manager. The questions addressed Mr. Thompsons most and ways in which he could improve his job perfor mance. Mr. Thompson, who had no employment history in local government before leaving the states largest health insurance company in late 2010 to assume veteran county administrator Joe Cone, who retired at that time. been a learning experience mixed with the list of un done or incomplete tasks left by the previous county manager that CJ has handled extremely well, wrote Commissioner Michael Crews. The commissioner also cited Mr. Thompsons implementation of a public records request policy and his oversight of the continued development of complishments. Among his best qualities, most com missioners noted, are Mr. Thompsons strong people skills and his ability to build good relationships with depart ment heads and the countys constitu There is some room for improve ment, however. Commissioners said they hope Mr. Thompson will do a better job of provid ing backup documents for board meet ings. Sometimes I feel like the county manager could improve on providing, or having on hand, backup information during meetings. This happened a few times on agenda items where purchasing ly improved in the last several months, said Com missioner Adam Giddens. When asked about ways for the manager to im prove, Commissioner Michael Crews said Mr. Thompson should delegate more to department heads rather than carrying the complete work load, and insist department heads be more respon sible for their subordinates. Commissioner Gordon Crews offered no con structive criticism, saying instead, CJ has per formed well in all situations he has faced. He in teracts well with the press, the public and also this board. He takes direction from the board well, but has not needed any micro-managing. I only expect great things for our county having CJ as our man ager. Mr. Thompson was hired by the commission in November, 2010 after a six-month search. He began on November 29 of that year. The north Macclenny native left his position as program manager for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida in Jacksonville to work for the county. I will look at areas where I consistently scored lower among all the commissioners and then devel op a plan to improve in those areas, Mr. Thompson said when asked about any changes he may make as a result of the evaluations. Depending on the area of focus, that may re quire day-to-day operational changes or more long term management philosophy and style changes, he said.

Page 6 T B C P ursday, January 5, 2012 KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES firstname.lastname@example.orgTo promote and celebrate their love for a dance that originated in South Carolina decades ago, Macclenny resident Danny Lamb and his wife Debbie hosted an event they called Beach Music 101: Shaggin on the Avenue in mid-December. The Shag is a swing dance that originated along the coast between Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina, during the 1940s. It was adapted by South Carolina as the today is recognized in national and international dance competitions held across the United States. Friends and patrons attended the evening event which included a presentation on the origin and history of the dance, examples of beach music, and dance demonstrations by members of the First Coast Shag Club [FCSC] of Jacksonville. Guests were also treated to a low country boil dinner which commonly accompanies shag dance events in South Carolina. The Lambs constructed a display of shag and beach music memorabilia including books, art, photographs, newspaper arof the novel Beach Music by the pre-eminent southern author Pat Conroy, who they once met at a book signing in Jacksonville. For Beach Music 101, the Lambs turned the main room of their car dealership on US 90 in downtown Macclenny into a to demonstrate the Shag. They danced to beach music tunes by bands like The Drifters, The Embers, The Tams, the Temptations, and The Chairman of the Board. With the presentation and dinner concluded, FCSC dancers gave free shag instruction to all interested guests. Earlier, Mr. Lamb recounted which came on a business trip to Greensboro, North Carolina in He was in the company of another salesman when he heard the song What Kind of Fool by The Tams on the radio and remarked how much he liked it. So you like beach music, the salesman commented. Then you must like the Shag, too. Mr. Lamb had never heard of either, but he was about to be introduced to an entire culture he had never known existed. Growing up in the 50s and songs on radio station WAPE out of Jacksonville, he said. There was even a relay station out of Baldwin and you could call and request a song and the DJ would say your name on the air and then play it for you. But none of us knew what we were listening to was known as beach music or that there was a dance associated with it. Ironically, a huge Shag event was about to take place at the hotel where he was staying. The next night, he entered the ballroom and came face to face with the music and dance that would quickly become one of his lifes passions. I was blown away, he recalls. The Embers were on stage playing Beach Music Medley and hundreds of people were on the was the prettiest dancing Id ever seen to the prettiest music Id ever heard. After that night, Danny introduced his wife to the dance and the couple became avid shaggers. They traveled to take lessons from a shag instructor and watched instructional CDs to help them learn new techniques. Over the years, they have frequently attended events such as the bi-annual Society of Shaggers Spring Safari and Fall Migrations held in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and attended by shag enthusiasts from all over the country. Last February, the Lambs performed the dance in the local production of Dancing with the Stars: Baker County Style. They received so many inquiries about their performance, they decided to plan a party to introduce interested people to the culture of shagging and beach music. Id wanted to do this event for a while, said Mr. Lamb. And it happen. I wish everyone could have the experience of dancing to this music on a well worn wood ocean pounding on the shore nearby. There truly is nothing like it. Anyone interested in learning to shag can attend free lessons taught by First Coast Shag Club instructors each Wednesday at Company in Jacksonville.

But on Tybee Island, Savan nahs quaint beach front com munity, development has found an easy balance between the commercial and the uniquely personal. Just 20 minutes east of Savan online visitors guide boasts as a uniquely charmed island, where nature lovers mingle with movie stars, bird watchers with good ol boys, pirate raids are regular happenings, parties take on epic proportions and everyone from townie to tourist, watches out for the sea turtles. the island town was the day after Thanksgiving. The weather was with visitors and despite the relaxed, friendly and languid, like the breeze that wafts in off the ocean. Even if you dont have an itin erary, just driving around the island is a pleasant experience. The houses are charming and the town is well maintained. Like history? The island boasts a rich and colorful past. Perhaps the most famous landmark is the Tybee Island Lighthouse. For 270 years it has guided ships from the Atlantic into the mouth of the Savannah River. With all its original second ary buildings intact and lovingly restored, its one of Americas best preserved lighthouse sites. On my visit, throngs of Japanese tourists were climbing the light houses 178 steps to take in the spectacular ocean and coastline panoramic views. After the lighthouse, you can tour Nearby Fort Pulaski Nation al Monument, a pre-Civil war Tybee offers lots of opportunities for water recreation like kayaking, canoeing, parasail ing and jet skiing. Or you can take one of the popular ecological tours that highlight the local beaches, marshes and maritime forest habitats, all abundant with wildlife. Captain Mikes Dolphin Tours and other companies of fer dolphin sighting and sunset cruises as well as inshore and Hungry? No problem. Local eateries abound. When I asked some of the locals for good places to eat I was told anywhere. bee, they said with conviction. On Tybee there are no bad res taurants. Here are a couple of the most celebrated. The Crab Shack is family and pet friendly and consistently voted best seafood and outdoor dining venue by patrons and food critics. Diners can partake on outdoor decks under huge oak trees and even enjoy a souvenir drink in a carved coconut shell and all within sight of 78 pet al ligators, raised in captivity by the Crab Shacks owner Joe. The Breakfast Club is a Tybee Island institution. Open from 7 am to 1 pm, its not uncommon to see people lined up and down the street waiting for a seat. This popular morning spot is billed as The legendary way to start the day. Downtown Tybee Beach is pedestrian friendly with lots of beach retail shops and cafes. With a thriving arts commu around the town to browse in. No trip to Tybee is complete without a visit to Ralph Douglas Jones Fish Art Gallery. The funky, eclectic establish ment brims with vintage col lectibles that constitute a quirky backdrop for showcasing his whimsical sculptures. Mr. Jones started selling his sculptures fashioned from found objects from a tent on the road years ago and today is a major artistic pres ence in the town. Tybee citizens and visitors celebrate the coastal community with a variety of seasonal events. In summer there is the famed Beach Bum Parade which in cludes patrons shooting each other with giant water pistols in the street and the SCAD Sand Art Festival showcasing giant sand sculpture competitions. In the fall comes the annual Pirate Festival, followed by the month-long festivities between Thanksgiving and Christmas launched from the pier on New Years Eve. Tybee celebrates Mardi Gras with a masquerade ball and street party and ob serves St. Patricks Day with the Irish Heritage Parade where ev eryone in town dresses in green and white and joins in. Or, if you prefer, you can sim ply lay on the beach, soak up the sand and surf, doing absolutely nothing but relaxing in this little piece of paradise where the pace is laid back and the welcome is always warm.

The BCHS football banquet on January 6 at 6 pm at the First Baptist Church of Macclenny is the place to be, particularly if you are a Seminole fan. Its easy to use the term legend, but former FSU coach Bobby Bowden lives up to the billing. He is the main speaker at the banquet. In his 34 year career, Mr. Bowden won two national titles, 12 ACC titles, had a pair of Heisman Trophy quarterbacks and is the second winningest coach of all time. He is a four-time national coach of the year, went to 28 straight college bowls and finished in the top 5 for 14 straight seasons. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the door for $5. Basketball is into the meat of the schedule as the boys and girls squads wind down to the district tournament in early February. The girls have been steadily improving as the seasons progressed. They will travel to Forrest High on January 10 and return home against West Nassau on January 13. The boys placed fourth in the Florida First Coast Classic, and though they had a rough start to the season, theyve shown some improvement lately. They travel to Terry Parker on January 5 before returning home against Keystone Heights on Saturday. Wrestling is in full swing, as is girls weightlifting. The lady lifters host Middleburg on Thursday at 3 pm and lift in a sub-sectional meet on Saturday at 9 am. The wrestlers travel to St. Augustine on January 12. Softball and baseball teams throw out their first pitches in early February. The Wildcat basketball team took fourth place in the Florida First Coast Classic December 2729 in the BCHS gym. The Cats lost their opening round match to Interlachen and had to battle back from the losers bracket to reach the consolation game. The Wildcats loss to Interlachen 49-48 was a heartbreaker. Interlachen broke a tie score with two seconds to go on a threepointer to win the game. The Cats had erased a 25-17 halftime deficit to claw their way back in the game. The Rams controlled the early run of play, outscoring BCHS 15-9 in the first quarter and steadily building their lead. Both teams started the third period ice cold and went almost 3.5 minutes without scoring a basket. BCHS narrowed the Ram lead to 6 points late in the third but Interlachen extended it back to 12 points. BCHS hit some key three pointers and freshmen center CeCe Jefferson made some key defensive plays under the basket to help lead the Wildcats back late in the fourth period. The Cats narrowed the score to 45-41 with 3:45 left and it was a 2-point game a minute later. Jefferson had two big defensive plays a block and a tie-up and Jesse Gardner hit a three pointer to give BCHS the 46-45 lead. Interlachen tied the score with a free throw and then hit the three pointer. BCHS hit a two pointer at the buzzer but it was too little, too late. Gardner led the Cats with 13 points. Darryl Johnson had 10, Cameron Mack 8 and Jefferson 6 points. The boys then won their way into the consolation match with a 65-54 victory over Newberry on December 28. The Cats started fast and were on top the whole way against the Panthers. The Wildcats took a 25-18 edge into the locker room at halftime.

Holland got an honorable mention and was the lone Cat to make the team. She led her squad in kills with 242 and hit 261 percent on the season. Holland was second on the team in digs with 228. She also had the best serve reception grade. She is an amazing all-around player, which is something you dont find much in volleyball anymore, as most players specialize in either hitting or back row, said Coach Heather Sulkowski. She was our most efficient hitter and passer. She is the total package and I cant wait to coach her in her senior year. We expect big things from Kayla.rfnt bf Do you have any old photos of Baker County people or buildings?We would like to use them.Call 259-2400 for more information.
