Finding ways to simplify pay
raises dominated much of the Baker
County Commission's budget work-
shop August 25.
"We waste so much time on this
every year. We need to set a policy
and only allow regular raises, and
to insist department heads agree on
a structured pay plan," suggested
County Manager Jason Griffis.
Ironically, it was his suggestion
for $2000 extra pay hikes to 17 em-
ployees who completed the Certi-
fied Professional Manager course
that triggered this year's debate.
"They were on payroll and went
to class on our time, went to Talla-
hassee for the presentation on our
money," objected Commissioner
"There was a lot of after-hours
work. I feel you should encourage
your managers to improve them-
selves," said Manager Griffis. "Al-
so, you have employees who for
years have gotten the $2000 for
four-week certification courses.
This was eight weeks totaling 32
hours in class plus extra work."
Commissioner Gordon Crews, a
registered nurse at Fra.er TMemorin ial
Hospital, said, "They pay for me to
go to courses all the time. It im-
proves me and goes on my resume.
But I never get extra pay."
At the end of the debate, the
board decided on a three-two vote
to pay a $1000 bonus each of the
next two years rather than salary in-
Manager Griffis will also get the
bonus for completing the manager
course, as will commissioners Rob-
inson and Mark Hartley for com-
pleting board member certification.
-In another bonus proposal, Man-
ager Griffis suggested employees
share some of the money left over
from a department's previous year's
budget. He recommended it be paid
as a Christmas bonus.
"They'll think twice about buy-
ing a new screwdriver if they know
they can get a bonus for turned-
back money. I guarantee there will
be less waste," Mr. Griffis said.
Another of his suggestions might
eliminate pay hikes like a $10,880
increase he recommended for Plan-
ning and Zoning Director Cathy
Rhoden. He and department super-
visor Bob Hathcox bolstered the
proposal with a list of the pay for
similar positions in other counties,
plus data on her increasing work
load to review proposed develop-
"She knew the salary when she
was hired, and with this money plus
what we already have to pay the
Regional Planning Council, we
could have hired a professional
planner," objected Commissioner
Robinson. "I'd rather give her a
clerical assistant than a pay raise -
a raise won't help her handle the
"(That amount) $10,880 is too
much at one time. Possibly we'd do
it in increments," agreed Commis-
In a subsequent workshop Sep-
tember 6, the board agreed on a
$4800 raise that will bring Ms.
Rhoden to $30,000.

tunity to suggest a structured pay

five days after Hurricane Katrina, a team of
Baker County Sheriff's deputies is headed to
an emergency operations center in the small
town of Poplarville, Miss.
From there they'll be dispatched to Pica-
yune, a city of nearly 11,000 people, to bol-
ster a police department beaten down by the
storm and worn down from near round-the-
clock efforts to maintain order.
Investigator Mike Combs of Macclenny,
who leads the local team, spoke with the
city's mayor and police chief.
"They are so appreciative we're here," he
tells his men.
"Au,, d have thought I was the president.
Poplarville and Picayune are in Pearl River
County, where Katrina killed 17 so far. Locat-
ed less than an hour north of New Orleans,
it's a large, mostly rural county of about
50.000 residents, nearly double that of Baker.
The eye of the storm reportedly passed
through the county.
Combs left Macclenny Friday morning
with Deputy Michael Lagle and retired depu-
ties Larry Moore and Earl Gonzalez.
At the rest stop on Interstate 10 near San-
derson, they joined a convoy from the Jack-
sonville and Clay County sheriffs' offices,
then added reserve Baker Deputy George
Thorne and Bay County Deputy David Russo
The caravan of cops had at least two dozen
vehicles, including a couple of tractor trailers,
a mobile command center, motor homes and
patrol cars, Baker's team had a large and a
small RV, two SUVs, a patrol car and a Ford

Architect: cost ofa new jail as
Baker County commissioners
listened to one of its advisory
groups, an architect and a financier
at a workshop Tuesday, but still
seemed no closer to deciding if,
when and where the county would
build a new jail.
The overriding message deliver-
ed to the commission was, "It's go-
ing to cost you."
William Rutherford, of CRA
Architects in Tallahassee, quoted a
top-end price of $16 million, not
including the cost of land.
Jim McGauley, chairman of the
Building and Facilities Committee,
reported that land costs would be
$700,000 if the jail is built adjacent
to the courthouse, and $10,000 to
$15,000 per acre at a site near the
Wal-Mart Distribution Center.
Those prices, of course, do not
include land prep or the cost of liti-
gation when the counties tries to
claim private property near the
A third option, the newest,
would be the least costly because
the county already owns the prop-
erty at the fairgrounds. The only
downside to that location is the like-
ly resistance of nearby residents.
The fairgrounds are being mov-
ed to the St. Mary Shoals park off
Chairwoman Julie Combs, who
came up with the idea of using the
fairgrounds, said the jail could be
positioned on the property to lessen
its impact on neighbors.
She said the site represents
"monetary savings as we're look-
ing about going into a huge debt."
Commissioner Gordon Crews, a
nurse who works at Fraser Hospital,
said he was thankful to be just a
block from the sheriff's office.
Mr. Rutherford, in his presenta-
high as $1
tion, said, "A jail is not a bad
neighbor... but you don't have any
Chief Chuck Brannan, who rep-
resented the sheriff's office at the
workshop, said Sheriff Joey Dob-
son "is not real keen on the fair-
grounds for a number of reasons."
Likewise, he isn't too keen on
the property near the courthouse.
The sheriff has long sought a
new jail, in large part to continue
housing federal prisoners, which
earns the county more than $1 mil-,
lion per year.
However, growth and tougher
judges are combining to push the
limits of the current facility.
At the commission's regular
meeting, held after the jail work-
shop, county attorney Terry Brown
presented the board with an ordi-
nance establishing impact fees.
The county will charge a flat
$1500, with the funds to be used
The school district will get
$1000 under a separate ordinance'
being drafted. The commission
must enact the ordinance on behalf
of the district.

"One problem is one official
hires a secretary at $30,000, another
hires at $21,000. So the #2 boss
gets a complaint from his secretary
and gives her a raise."
Commissioners agreed with the
concept, using the word "consisten-
cy" a number of times during the
September 6 workshop.
"There needs to be consistency
in deciding the amount of raises. I
agree Ms. Rhoden's work load has
increased since she was hired. But
where do you draw, the line and
how do you approve this one and
turn down the next?" asked Com-
The. "consistent" pay scales need
to be competitive with neighboring
communities; Mr. Crews suggested.

office employees that their starting
salary is $6000 under Jacksonville?
But how would we justify a $1750
raise at that office when other de-
partment heads only put in the stan-
In another proposal, to equalize
expenses, Manager Griffis suggest-
ed central purchase of office sup-
plies. Currently, each department
handles its own.
Turning to the overall state of the
budget, Manager Griffis noted the
annual debate over raiding reserve
accounts to balance.
"Since at least 1999, the general
fund balance has increased. So are
the deficiencies real or not?" he
"Evidently not. The real question
is do we generate more money or
just not spend as much during the
year?" noted Commissioner Hartley
Actually, the answer was both
for fiscal 2003-04. The audit pegs
revenue at $296,142 over expecta-
tion, while spending was $1.7 mil-
But the board did not have the
luxury of knowing those figures at
budget preparation time a year ago.
In fact, it did not get the audit for
last year until mid-August.
Private CPA firms often are tied
up with taxpayer returns until the
April 15 federal deadline and be-
yond if their clients get extensions.
But for the $61,400 fee budgeted
for the next audit, Chairman Julie
Combs feels, "It's time to require
the auditor to put us #1 to.get a
clear financial picture earlier."
The board used to get the audit
by early January, but it has crept lat-
er. Last year, it was right at the Sep-
tember 30 deadline for submission
to the state. This year, it was pre-
sented at the August 15 meeting.
So with little information last
fall, the commission held spending
to bare bones essentially little
more than pay raises.
Other than the belated audit,
there are several factors in the un-
certainty. Final income and expens-
es trail several months past the Sep-
tember 30 end of a fiscal year. For
instance, federal inmate boarder fee
payments to the sheriff's depart-
ment typically lag three to four
months after a bill is sent. There is a
similar delay in bills for purchases.
So the' finance department does a
"13th report" in late November or
even into December on the final fig-

It's a little hard to think of any-
thing relevant to say in the wake of
the tremendous disaster that has hit

devastation. But words are my job

the 20-foot grass covered wall that
separated the city from the river. I
told him it was one of the levees

north to Baton Rouge, I pointed out
the above-ground cemeteries and

The hurricane itself did some
damage to the city, but its fury was

are towns like Waveland, Missis-

on par with Hurricane Andrew.
I suppose it's easy for the people
of the coast to see the coverage on
television of New Orleans and say
"What about us? Don't forget
what's happened here,"
It's just that this the first time a

As many people in Baker County area
aware, our son Jeremy suffers from cystic fi-
brosis. What.many may not know is how the
disease affects his daily life.
In most respects, Jeremy is a typical 17-
year-old teen. He enjoys all the things most
teens enjoy, "hanging out with friends," at-
tending school, talking on the phone and dri-
ving his car. He does chores around the
house, plays with Heather and Bear (our two
dogs), swims and fishes, skateboards and the
Sounds completely normal, right?
How normal was it for a child, when he
was six-years-old to ask you if he is going to
die? That is a horrible question to have to an-
swer for your child, but even more horrible
for the child who faces the realization that his
life will end sooner than most.
In Jeremy's lifetime, he has lost five friends
to the disease. A typical teenager does not
usually worry about dying, but our son ques-
tions if he is next. He fights for his life every
day, a mental and physical fight.
Many of you have teenagers who look for-
ward to prom, school trips, graduation, etc.,
but Jeremy has missed out on a number of
these activities, and may never have the op-
portunity to hear his name called to receive a
diploma. It seems more than a person his age
should have to cope with.
Jeremy was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis
at 18-months-old. Right away the regimen
started, the medications, chest therapy, multi-
ple breathing treatments. By school age, his
condition seemed to worsen, and the hospita-
lizations began at first about every six
They lasted 10-14 days initially, then in-
creased to every three-four months for longer
periods. Today, he is in the hospital about ev-
ery other month for anywhere from 10-21
days. This is a long period for anyone, but
especially long for a teenager who does not
want to miss out on life for one second.
He has also had numerous surgeries his
first at age six. To date, Jeremy has had over
30 sinus surgeries, and this summer endured
a major operation. He is doing well, and re-
turned to school; he hopes to complete most
of the year.
We have not written this to play on sym-
pathies. We have accepted that God has a
plan and a purpose through his disease. We
also realize we are tools in the battle to end
cystic fibrosis, and hope Baker County will

As of September 3, power was
still down, so police officers and
their families were living at'the
department's headquarters because
it had a generator.
The building, not all that spa-

with women, children, officers,
support personnel and a couple of
jail trustys. It was impossible to
walk anywhere without turning

When Magri found out a team

team leader, Investigator Mike

The Picayune police department
is slightly larger than the Baker
County Sheriff's Office.
In the aftermath of the storm,
there'd been some looting of stores
in the projects. In addition, two of-
ficers responding to, a disturbance

hostile crowd. When they called
for backup, it was slow getting to
them because downed trees block-
ed most streets to the area. Magri
called it a near riot.
"They were wanting to show re-

There also were several car
chases and a bust involving sever-

At one station, the line snaked

The only real action of the night

He pulled over as she sat down
on a concrete storm drain.
He grabbed a couple of packs
of cheese crackers and a can of Vi-
enna sausages he had in his SUV,
and walked over to the woman.
As he handed her the stuff, she
broke down and began sobbing.
"She told me she lost everything
in the storm and was just wander-
ing around,".he said. "She said she
had no place to go."
Because the team's mission was
more disciplinarian than humani-
tarian, he couldn't do more for her.
The food back in the trailer was to
feed the officers, as well as subse-
quent Baker County deputies sched-
uled to go there this week.
It was a heart-wrenching scene,
but one that Combs predicted could
very well repeat itself when his
team began to work the streets.
"It's difficult, but you have to
be careful not to get too far off

The caravan crossed into Stone

Again, people along the hilly
back road smiled and waved.
At one point a beat-up white
pickup came barreling down the
road in the opposite direction. The
driver, a grinning, shirtless country
boy, was sticking his hand toward
each passing police vehicle giving
its driver a thumbs-up while hold-
ing a cigarette between his fingers.
Approaching Poplarville, which
has just over 2600 residents, the
cars began running over power

Wildcats coach Carl West isn't
a man who looks for excuses, but
what happened at the end of Fri-
day's 20-18 loss at Bradford
County was too wrong.
"It was mismanagement by the
officials," he said. "We don't mind
losing to Bradford or anyone else,
but it's not fair to the kids. They
were cheated out of a legitimate
chance to win the game."
West said he's sending a tape of
the Cats' game-ending drive to the
Florida High School Athletic As-
"I just want it on the record. I
hope they'll notify [the officials']
association so they don't make the
same mistake that hurts another
team," said West, who added that
no matter what, the results of the
game won't be overturned.
SThe drive started when the Cats,
down 20-28, got the ball on their
own 20 with about 2:40 to play.
They drove to mid-field where
they faced a fourth and 10, but
quarterback Carlos Holton scram-
bled for 19 yards. He fell out of
bounds as he was, tackled at the
The clock should have been
stopped because not only did he
get out of bounds, but he got the
first down as well.
Instead, the clock continued to
run, costing the Cats about 20 to
25 seconds, West said.
Two'plays later; Holton took a
hard shot to the chest and had to
leave the game briefly However,
SChris Crews came in and ran for a
first down at the 17.
He also, made it out of bounds.
but again the officials failed to
stop the clock until Baker's coach-
es "yelled and screamed to get
* their attention."
The officials stopped it, but re-
started it wrongly, West said -
forcing the Cats to spike the ball to
stop the clock, which nonetheless
continued until time ran out. How-
ever, they put one second back on.
Baker then lined up for a field
goal attempt from the 17.
West said one of the Tornadoes
blatantly jumped offsides, but no
penalty was called, and Bradford
blocked the kick to preserve the
Due to the clock mismanage-
ment, the Cats lost the chance to
move the ball for a shorter, field
goal try or a shot at the end zone..
"This was first level stuff. This
was nof a judgment call," West
'said. "It's something you learn in
the first week of officials school."
It was a tough loss.
"It's frustrating because of the
way we lost it," he said. "I told the.
kids, 'Don't hang your heads."'
The Cats showed a marked im-
provement on offense, after being
shut out in their Kickoff Classic
and scoring just nine in their sea-
son-opening loss to Middleburg.
Against the Broncos, Baker
failed to complete a pass, but Hol-
ton went 4-8 for 105 yards against
Bradford. In addition, Dontay John-
son completed a halfback option
pass to Gary Dugger for a 51-yard
touchdown, giving the team 156
The team's goal is to throw for
at least 150 yards per game.
Chris Crews started at quarter-
back, but went 0-2 with an inter-
"I told them I'd evaluate them
during the first half and would
play whoever got the job done,"
Holton played most of the sec-
ond quarter and all of the second '
half except when he took that hit
to his chest.
Crews was the fourth quarter-
back to play in the season's first
three games. Senior Craig Yarbor-
ough went down with a knee in-
jury in the Kickoff Classic. Holton
and Sterling West couldn't get the
offense moving against Middle-
SHolion's play against Bradford,
however, apparently has put an
end to the quarterback carousel.-
"We've decided that Carlos will
be the starter and we'll focus on
'him, bring him along," West said.
"He'll get more reps in practice

Baker took a 6-0 lead into the
locker room' at the half thanks to a
short touchdown run by Johnson,
but gave it back when they fum-
bled the second half kickoff.
The turnox er led to a Tornadoes
touchdown to tie the game at b-6.
Later in the quarter, ho%\c\er.
Johnson and Dugger hooked up
for their lone-distance score.
Dugger. the recoid-setting re-
ceiver, gained more than 100 yardss
after being held in check the first
two games. "Because we finally
got him the ball," West said.
After Dugger's scoring grab put
Baker up 12-6, Bradford answered
with a touchdown and a two-point
conversion to forge ahead 14-12.
Then Johnson, \ho gained 108
yards on 10 carries, scored his sec-
ond touchdown on a seven-\ard
run, to regain the lead.
The Cats rushed for 147 yards
against a tough Tornadoes' defen-
sive, front, which features a major-
college prospect. West said.
He also said that.while he was
pleased with the team's running'
game, the coaching staff o t oud

Running back Timmy Weathers scores a touchdown in the first half against Suwannee.
Cat junior varsity football
impressive over Bulldogs
BY MICHAEL RINKER
Baker County junior varsity
football coach Franklin Griffis
sounded very impressed by his
team's performance in its 20-0 vic-
tory over Suwannee County Sep-
"We came out pretty hard, pret-
ty aggressive, pretty physical," he
Meanwhile, varsity coach Carl
West was impressed with Griffis.
"Franklin has does a great job,"
he said about his assistant," he
said. "His team really bounced
back from the West Nassau game."
Griffis said Suwannee was good
last year, when the Bulldogs took
it to the Wildcats. "We told our
guys that being physical was key."
The Cats dominated from the
beginning, scoring a touchdown in
each of the first three quarters
while shutting down the Bulldogs.
The definitive moment may
have come at the end of the half
when Baker's punt returned muff-
ed the kick, giving the Dogs pos-
session inside the Cats' 10 yard
The defense stopped Suwannee
cold on the first two plays, then-
forced a fumble on the next, and
got the turnover to preserve their
12-0 lead going-intothe locker
"They got inside our 10 three
times," Griffis said, "and we got a
fumble, sack and tackle for a loss."
The Cats' defense collected four
sacks, two by Josh Hodges. "We
were playing in their backfield."
Meanwhile the running game
was outstanding, rushing for 209
Josh Trippett led the way with
102 yards on 13 carries.
"The offensive line was open-
ing holes," Griffis said. "We knew
we had some good backs and the
line had potential. They wanted to,
prove they could get the job done."
He said the team must work on
its passing game it had just one
completion and its special teams,
which had a couple of fumbled
punts, including the one recovered
by the Bulldogs inside the 10.
Next up for the Cats is an away
game versus the Middleburg Bron-
cos September 8.
The next home game is against
Bradford County September 15. It
kicks off at 7:00 pm. ,
