He explained that forensic beds

The forensic beds at NEFSH

The board also approved a

The state has already approved

Mr. Berchen told the commis-

have any liability in connection
with the program.
A house on Doctor's Circle is
being modified for two patients.
It will be staffed by house par-

Amid protests by Ms. Swisher
and Danny Lamb,, selected earlier
to represent the neighborhood, the
board approved the emergency sta-
tus pending recommendations from
the committee and/or the City of
Macclenny's approval.
It will also seek an estimate of the
cost of the painting and striping.
The Traffic Related Committee,
which convened for the first time
June 29, examined two solutions:
Plan A, which involves striping
South Boulevard, diagonal parking
spaces and using another crossing
guard; and Plan B, which involves
reconfiguring existing property and
rerouting bus traffic off of South
Ms. Swisher, in a statement she
read at the school board meeting,
reminded the board that the traffic
committee had made no recommen-
dations for any work to be started,
nor had the committee agreed upon
Plan A submitted by the school
district regarding the painting and
"It hasn't been approved by the
traffic committee," Mr. Lamb in-
terjected. "We don't want the roads
to be striped. We don't want that at
Ms. Swisher continued by re-
questing that the school administra-
tion give the same consideration to
to Plan B as to Plan A.
"We request for Plan B that ar-
chitectural and engineering plans
be designed by a third party and be
paid for by the school board and or
city/county commissioners with the
same sense of urgency as has been
exhibited for Plan A," she said.
Ms. Swisher's request was not
addressed by the board.
School district officials argue that
seeking emergency status is neces-
sary to establish safe traffic flow by
the start of school on August 3.
The administration believes that
painting a dividing stripe down the
middle of South Boulevard to es-
tablish two one-way lanes for buses
and cars, and painting of diagonal
parking spaces will result in safer,
more efficient traffic management.
Mr. Lamb voiced opposition
throughout the meeting, believing
the school board is moving forward.
prematurely with plans to stripe the
road prior to review and selection of

a traffic-soh mg proposal to be de-
cided, hopefully, during the traffic
committee's next work session.
It's been the traffic committee's
understanding that none of the dis-
cussion regarding possible solu-
tions would be put into action be-
fore all suggested proposals had
been more thoroughly examined, a
plan selected, then submitted to the
school board for consideration.
School board member Patricia
Weeks argued the feasabilty of the
board's desire to declare emergency'
status and move forward with the
striping and painting on the basis
that traffic safety has recently be-
come a topic of extreme concern to
the board.
Ms. Weeks contended that the
board now recognizes a critical
need for the lane striping and new
parking space lines even beyond the
plans by the school administration
and traffic committee because the
need to improve the general traffic
safety of the area warrants it.

her financially to postpone retire-

Whenever I meet an elementary
school teacher, the conversation
turns to children and education,
which is natural.
I admire people who become
educators and am always interest-
ed in the factors that put them on
the road to choosing teaching as a
profession. I completed the college
education requirements and earned
my teaching certification, but didn't
feel I possessed the patience or
stamina to be a really good teacher.
Meeting LuAnn Williams, prin-
cipal of Nlacclenny Elementary and
recipient of the 2006 University of
Florida's College of Education's
Distinguished Educator; Award,
once again reminded me that edu-
cators are a special breed of folk.
Born in rural Baker County into
a family of 12 children, this remark-
able woman overcame poverty
to attend college, earn a master's
degree in education, teach at the
elementary level, then become an
Ms. Williams credits her tight-
knit family and her parents' simple,
solid example of support and love
as being the foundation which pro-
pelled her toward achievement and
She laments a general demise-
of Itestrong nuclear family unit inu',
modern society and believes this is
putting growing numbers of chil-
dren at a distinct disadvantage.
What she does. believe is that,
when ,parents cannot provide a
strong presence, for whatever rea-
son, teachers can step in and take up
the slack. Just one person's positive
influence can make the. difference
in a child's life. It's a role she savors
and looks forward to every day of
her working life.
Parents face a lot of challenges,

Ms. Williams recognizes. Many are
single parents trying desperately to
meet their children's many needs.
Many work multiple jobs trying to
make ends meet. Constant demands
on a parent's time, finances and
energy don't always leave much
room for quality one-on-one time
with their, children. Teachers can
fill in the blanks and fill them sig-
An integral aspect of Ms..
Williams'philosophy toward educa-
tion is an open door policy regard-
ing parents.
"1 welcome parents to my school,"
she said. "They need to know they
are as important and welcome at
the school as the children Many
of them don't even make appoint-
ments anymore. When they have a
concern or a need to talk the,\ just
show up."

, When asked what one skill par-
ents should, if at all possible, instill
in their children, Ms. Williams
answers without hesitation read-
Teach a child to read and you
give that child a passport to the
world. Even if they never leave
Baker County, at least they know
of other people, beliefs and cul-.
tures. Reading empowers a child
with dreams and shows them what
is possible.
Ms. Williams' favorite book
from childhood is also one of my
own favorites The Five Chinese
Brothers by Claire Huchet Bishop.
I laughed when she told me this. I'd
not thought of this book for years
and suddenly the story with its sim-
ple but fabulous illustrations blazed
up from my memory.
It's a perfect example of a "pass-

port" book and a magical story
about a culture far away, loyalty
and the length a family will go to
save a loved one.
Ms Williams belief in education
finds its way into her spiritual life,
too She often prays for students and
families she knows are struggling.
Whenshe isn't busy being princi-
pal, and wife and mother to her own
family, she's educating families
through church workshops about
the mechanics of preparing students
to apply to college
When Ms. Williams looks at
children she doesn't see race or
social status, ability or disability,
pn\ pledge or poverty. She suimply
sees a child and the potential of that
"They are all my babies, every
one," she says.

July 10, 2006
FORT MCCOY, Wisc.-A friend
once told me the great thing about
retirement was that you have six
Saturday and a Sunday.
I appreciate that analogy more
now because as we continue our
training in preparation of deploying
to Iraq, it seems each week we have
seven Mondays.
It is amazing how time is critical
in everything we do, from waking
up to eating to showering, but days
don't matter. It is rare when I know
what day it is and I have to check
every time I have to write down a
In fact, after I returned from
Operation Iraqi Freedom in
December, 2003, I thought I would
be able to adjust quickly and return
to work in January with no prob-
Things went well enough, but the
following basketball season I did
a program for my team. We were
selling them at the games when one
of my players came up and said,
"Coach, do you realize this isn't
2003 anymore?"
I didn't. And that was scary.
We're into our second month
of training now and have switched
to the field for a series of combat
operations that we'll likely encoun-

ter in Iraq, including convoy secu-
rity, casualty evacuation and urban
The Forward Operating Base
(FOB) we're at does a pretty good
job of replicating Iraq. Sandy, bar-
ren and they even broadcast Muslim
prayers over loud speakers through-
out the day, including 0400-pro-
nounced oh, four hundred-which
is military for 4 a.m.
Like Robin Williams' character
in "Good Morning Vietnam" said,
"It's 0400. What does the oh mean?
It means oh, my God, it's early."
-We're living in tents with about
12 people; the tents are fairly large
and fairly comfortable with ply-
wood floors.
Besides the prayers, another
problem is that we're all on differ-
ent training cycles, which means
when we're coming and going at all
times of the night. So if you happen
to be able to sleep in-until 0500-
someone else has already been up
banging around the tent for more
than an hour.
We also have to wear our I.B.A.
(Interceptor Body Armor), Kevlar
helmet, gloves and goggles every-
where we go. The new body armor,
which is unisex, is equipped with
removable throat and groin pro-.
tectors, as well as front and back
removable plates, which can stop'
7.62 mm rounds.
The armor along with the Kevlar
and weapon all weigh about 30-35
pounds. So inthe middle ofthe night
if you want to walk the 50 yards to

the porta-johns to relieve yourself,
it entails a ten-minute preparation
period by getting dressed in the
dark and stumbling over everyone
to get out of the tent.
The fact that we are already
force-hydrating to get ready for life
in the desert doesn't help matters
much. I'm currently drinking eight
quarts of water a day and know
from my previous experience that
that isn't enough.
I was drinking 12 liters-more
than 10 quarts-of water a day the
last time I was over, and when I
went to the doctor for a checkup, he
told me to drink at least two more
quarts a day.
Currently that means a lot of get-
ting up and relieving yourself in the
middle of the night. So I lie on my
cot and convince myself I can put
it off. That usually buys me a few
precious minutes and by then some-
one else gets up and starts banging
Or the Muslim prayers begin.

ATV law


Dear Editor:
i have been watching ,children
in my neighborhood riding their
all-terrain vehicles, and I wondered
what is safe and what is not.
After a lot of soul-searching, I
looked up Florida law and it was
very enlightening. From Chapter
316 (motor vehicles and uniform
traffic control), here' what I found:
The term "all-terrain vehicle"
means any motorized off-highway
vehicle 50 inches or less in width,
having a dry weight of 900 pounds
or less, designated to travel on three
or more low-pressure tires, having
a seat designated to be straddled
by the operator and handlebars for

Except as provided in this sec-
tion, an all-terrain vehicle may not
be operated on public roads, streets
or highways of this state, except as
otherwise permitted by the manag-
ing state or federal agency.
I have observed these rules (and
there are others) being ignored by
the parents and children of Baker
County. They ride ATVs on paved
roads down to the comer store to
get snacks..
Also, when did you last see a
child wearing a safety. helmet, let
:alone eye protection?
What is the usual age of these
children? Many times they are un-
der the age of 16.
Police have to see these viola-
tions, and when kids think police
have been called, all they do is get
off the ATV and tell their side of the
story. ,
When I see this happening, I truly
wonder how safe are the children,
grandchildren and others in this
county. Are they not our future?

Dear Editor:
I asked the county commission on July 11 to pay me one-quarter of
my sick time left over after I resigned from Baker County EMS, and was
turned down.
County policy states that if an employee retires, he or she should be
paid one-quarter of accumulated sick time. I could have retired but I would
have been penalized by the state retirement system because of my age. In
the past an employee resigned and because of an agreement between an
attorney and the county attorney, payment was made.
This was an exception to the county policy. I asked for payment of
sick time in my letter of resignation and was told by the chairman that
he thought I should receive it because it was done in the past for another
employee. I waited for my last check and the payment was not there. When
questioning it, I was told to get on the agenda at a commission meeting
and request it. Later, I was told by the chairman that I should not receive it
because it was against county policy. County policy had been broken in the
past for another employee, so why am I any different?
I have given 18 years to the county and called in sick one time in 17
years. In the past. year, I have used up some of my sick money in order to
cut down on the time. I have donated hundreds of hours to other employees
who needed time. Why am I being penalized for being a good employee
who is rarely out on sick leave?
The county commissioners have policies and procedures for employees,
but if you are going to stick by these policies it should be uniform to all
Citizens of Baker County, please wake up and see how unfair and incon-
sistent some of the commissioners are. Take this into consideration when
you cast your votes for them.

CEB wants to order

The Code Enforcement Boardwill
ask the Baker County Commission
next month to authorize the clean
up of private property when own-
ers fail to do so after they are cited
for violations of the county's refuse
The request arose from a case re-
heard during the code board's regu-
lar meeting the evening of July 16.
Neighbors off Klein Road west
of Glen St. Mary complained of
trash and abandoned vehicles on a
tract owned b\ Robert Smiley.
The CEB ordered a clean-up of
the same property two years ago,
then filed a lien when Mr. Smiley
failed to comply. The lien still
stands and the law allows subse-
quent complaints since the 180-day
fine period has long passed.
Code Enforcement Office Glen
Patten produced photos taken ear-
lier Monday of accumulated refuse,
and noted he had posted a notice of
hearing in a visible location since
the owner had not responded to sev-
eral certified letters, the first dating
back to March of this year.
The health department also visit-
ed the site following neighbor com-
plaints about rodent infestation.
The code board ordered an initial
$200 fine if the property is not clean
within 10 days, then fines of $ 100 a
da\ for up to 180i daas
."We need a means to clean up
property when an owner does not

and theP
brick exterior
didn't haeii
the slightest
bit of dirt or
grime on it.,
The sell-.
ers decided
to price the
home properly
and we quickly accepted
one of many great offers for
it. The sellers were slated
to walk away with a nice
chunk of change and every-
thing was smoothly heading
toward closing..
Then one day I got a call
from the buyers' .agent.
The WDO report had come
back positive. WDO
means Wood
and as
you might
have guessed
from the title of the arti-
cle, it turned out that the
place had termites.
I called another pest con-
trol guy, over there to deter-
mine the extent of the infes-
tation and when they pulled
back the drywall, the little
guys were swarming in there
and extensive structural
damage was visible in ithe
studs. It was a nightmare.
Unfortunately, when the sell-
ers woke up from it, they
were staring down the barrel
of nearly $5,000 dollars in
treatment and repair costs.'
The repairmen even had to

Needless to say, my sell-
ers were none too thrilled
about their net profits being
eaten away at by a bunch
of silent'little visitors who
were squatting on their land.
Perhaps the worst part of all
is that they really had done
just about everything pos-
sible to make sure that the
home was well cared for...

r; I n case
you're new to the area, the
warm, humid and inviting
climate of Northeast Florida
is host to all sorts of
earth's wonder-
ful creatures ,that
don't quiteclassify
as human. To put it
another way, we've
got tons of bugs....literally.;
Some of them eat our crops.
Some eat each other. Some
of them even eat us! But in
real estate, the ones you've
got to look out for are the
ones that intend to eat you

into a home. A mature col-
ony will contain an average
of 60,000 workers (these
are the termites that actu-
ally tear up the wood to feed
to other castes of termites
in the colony) who can con-
sume up to a one-foot length
of 2" x 4" pine every 118 to
157 days. Ouch!
Termites aren't always
the easiest pests to find
evidence of in and around
a home. The easiest sign
to look for is small mud
tubes, either on the wood
itself or near cracks in the
exterior brick or foundation
which lead all the way to
the ground. These outside

are about the diameter of a

Also, keep an eye outfor

As far as treatment goes,
there are two major types.
of termites: "ground"
termites and "dry-
wood" termites.
Ground ter-. ..
mites are the
most common. To
survive, they require
food in the form of cellulose
extracted from the wood.
Interestingly, they can-
not digest this wood
on their own. They.
contain small; protozoa
(microorganisms)' in
their intestines that
'secrete an enzyme
needed to break down the
wood. Ground termites also
require a constant source of
moisture and a moderate cli-
mate. In comparison to dry
wood termites, ground ter-
mites can do the most dam-

attic where the roof leaks or,
to a foundation area below a

gets more expensive..
Standard treatments for
ground termites will usually
be based on a price per lin-
ear foot of the exterior wall
perimeter. It isn't cheap,
but neither 'is hoisting up' a

The Florida Department of Transportation invites you to attend a public hearing to discuss proposed
transportation improvements to Interstate 10 from CR 125 in Baker County, Florida, east to the proposed
Branan Field Chaffee Road Interchange in Duval County, Florida. This hearing will be held Tuesday, July 18,
2006, in the Baker County Commission Chambers, 55 N. Third Street. Macclenny, Florida 32063.
The hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a presentation by the Department followed by an opportunity for public
comment. However, for your convenience, beginning at 4:30 p.m., Department personnel with maps,
drawings, and other project information will be available to discuss the proposed improvements and answer
questions. Also, as of June 20, 2006, information will be available for inspection and review during normal
business hours at the Emily Taber Public Library, 14 West Mclver Avenue, Macclenny, Florida 32063, the
Callahan Branch Library, 5266 State Road 200 #10, Callahan, Florida 32011, and the FDOT Jacksonville
Urban Office, 2198 Edison Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32204.
The Florida Department of Transportation has been conducting a Project Development and Environmental
Study evaluating the need to add capacity to the existing Interstate 10 roadway. The objective of the
proposed improvements is to reduce congestion and improve safety by widening Interstate 10 from a four-
lane facility to a six-lane facility by adding additional lanes in the median and to extend the interchange merge
and diverge ramps to meet current standards. Although the proposed improvements do not require
additional right-of-way for the road widening, right-of-way will be needed for stormwater treatment ponds
along the corridor.
This hearing is being conducted to afford interested persons the opportunity to express their views
concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed
improvements. Those who wish to submit written statements may do so at the hearing or mail them to the
address below no later than August 17, 2006. All comments received by August 17, 2006, will become part of
the public hearing record.
All residents, property owners, and interested persons or groups are encouraged to come and participate.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability or
familial status. This project is being developed in compliance with Titles VI and Related Statutes of the Civil
Rights Act. This hearing will be held in compliance with Chapter 339, F.S., Chapter 120, F.S., 23 CFR 771,
and 23 USC 128. Also, the project has been evaluated in accordance with Federal Executive Orders 11990
"Protection of Wetlands" and 11988 "Floodplain Management".
Anyone needing project or public hearing information or special accommodations under the Americans with
Disabilities Act of 1990, should write to the address or call the telephone number given below. Special
accommodation requests under the Americans with Disabilities Act should be made at least seven (7) days
prior to the public heal ing.
Your attendance at this public hearing is encouraged and any comments made are appreciated. If you have
any questions or comments please contact:
