Ricky Higginbotham has lived his entire life dealing with limb girdle
muscular dystrophy, but he has never let it stop him for one minute. .
When an unsuccessful surgical procedure last fall resulted in his be-
ing dependant on a wheel chait, the indomitable Glen St. Mary resident
refused to let his condition slow him down.
Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of more than 30 genetic diseases
characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal
rhuscles that control movement.
Limb girdle MD is usually not fatal and victims can live long and often

working. The motorized wheel chair allows him to hold the handlebar on
the table and maneuver it into position.
He still has to have help with lifting and, of course, people must bring
appliances to him.
Last fall, Mr. Higginbotham, who has a background in auto mechanics,
electrical work and appliance repair, fell while working around his home
and sustained serious bruising to his torso area. While recovering, he was
sent'to a urologist who convinced him of the need for surgical removal of
The surgery left him unable to stand and he had no recourse but to use a
wheelchair. With no post-surgery care or physical therapy recommended
by the surgeon, Mr. Higginbotham was on his own.
"They did the surgery, sent me home after one day with no instructions
and basically said, 'See ya later,'" said Mr. Higginbotham.
For victims of limb girdle MD, physical exercise is critical.
Healing from the surgery took weeks. Without the exercise and con-
fined to the chair, his leg tendons shrank severely, leaving him unable to
stand or walk.

Glen St. Mary officials Tuesday
night became the last to decide on
how much the town will charge in
impact fees for new construction.
At a workshop prior to their reg-
ular monthly meeting, town coun-
cilmen agreed to charge $2750
per unit, and to collect the school
board's $1500 fee.
The mayor will now work on
getting an ordinance, written so
that the council can vote the fees
Glen's amount is higher than
the county's $1500 and lower than
the City of Macclenny, which is
slightly higher than $3000. The
county, the city and the school
board all approved the concept of
impact fees late last year.
The fees, levied on ne\\ con-
struction, are intended to help pay
for the additional roads, schools,
police and fire services needed to

Glen St. Mary will also spread
its fee across several categories.
A studN is required to determine
w whether a fee is justified and what
amount can be assessed.
Glen officials paid the town's

However, they opted not to fol-

and his stubborn spirit, Mr. Higginbotham is deter-
mined to be standing and walking short distances be-
fore the year is out.
Duchenne MD, the most common form of the dis-
order, strikes in infancy and often takes the life of the
victim in the early teenage years.
"There is no cure for MD, but I was lucky I had the
limb girdle form," says Mr. Higginbotham. "Otherwise
I probably wouldn't be here today. As a child, we knew
something was wrong and my parents would take me
to the pediatrician and he would tell them not to worry,
I was just uncoordinated."
Over time, the problems with coordination, motor
skills and mobility grew more pronounced, but Mr.
Higginbotham's fighting spirit always kept him going.
He wasn't coddled by his family, which in retrospect
he views as a valuable experience.
"I got no special treatment because I was different,"
he said. "My dad always made me try by myself first,'

a reflection on the city
Sorry to take so long, but I would like to comment on Kelley Lannigan's
June 29 column about Nlacclenny Park.
This park could be one of Nlacclenny's stars instead of an eyesore.
It needs not only to be cleaned up and fishing should not be allowed in
the pond but it needs to be brightened up. It needs tree trimming and col-
or. Plantings could be done with perennials that, once established, would
not need the constant care and "water that annuals do. You get the sense of
darkness even in the middle of the day.
The gazebo is a nice touch, but paint it. Add color all around Right now
it just looks nasty, but there are so many possibilities to make it sparkle.
Macclenny is growing, and places like this could be an asset. Photogra-
phers are always looking for unique places to photograph models, and with
the city's growth, we want all the positive publicity we can get.
These may just seem like a small little deal. but it only takes one bad
experience to turn someone's interest to another area. Granted, I am in
real estate sales, so I do have a vested interest in this. but in my brochures,

Would like to be able to add this.

attack in January, 1998
I want to respond to an article I read in your July 29 edition that contained
a statement by Robert Home made when he was arrested on June 22.
Mr. Home stated, "The officer didn't do anything about the person who

Mr. Home's statement is misleading. I am the person who hit Mr. Home
in the head. and I'm here at Florida State Prison serving a 91.2 month sen-

increase of daily traffic through Baker County from the present 25,000 vehicles to 62,000 by 2030. Mr. Henderson said higher traffic counts

Commission approves re-routing of
Reid Stafford Rd. to the south of 1-10
BY MICHAEL RINKER
In a relatively light agenda, the Baker County Com-
mission cleared the way for rerouting Reid Stafford
Road so that it intersects with CR 229 farther south,
a%\ aa from Interstate 10.
The county was concerned about the safety of hav-
ing the road meet CR 229 so close to the interstate
interchange, according to the developer's agreement
commissioners.approved with Osceola Land & Timber
Reid Stafford is a dirt road that runs along the south
side of 1-10 between CR 229 and CR 125; although at
that end it's called Glen Nursery Road.
Under the agreement, Osceola is granting a i 00-foot
right of way through its land so that the road can be
redirected southwest and connect with CR 229 about a
half mile south of where it does now.
Osceola will build the base for the road, then the
county will pave it.
The company will pay the difference between the
cost of paving the new road and the cost of paving the
old road, which the county would likely have done.
The agenda was light because the Independence Day
holiday pushed back the commission's first meeting of
the month from July 4 to July 11,
Its second meeting of the month was held at its regu-
larly scheduled time, just six days later.
In other business, the commission:
Approved increases in per diem rates (from $50
to $80), breakfast ($3 to $6),,lunch ($6 to $11), dinner
($12 to $19) and mileage (29 cents to 44.5 cents)
Agreed to remove special rescue and garbage col-
lection assessment liens against property owned by
Dan Cooper, who is selling.
The board also waived interest and penalties, requir-'
ing Mr. Cooper to pay just the original assessments,
Which were $75 each \ear in 198' through 1989.
Mr. Cooper said he % as unaw are of the assessments,
which has been a common problem because at the time
the county had problems notifying all property own-

Committee will propose a
modified school traffic plan
Looking for the best alternative
available to solve traffic problems
on South Boulevard before the start
of 2006-07 school year in August,
the recently formed traffic-related
committee last Thursday evening
approved a modified version of
Plan A, previously submitted for
consideration to the committee by
the Baker County School Board.
The plan incorporates elements
from Plan B which was also previ-
ously proposed by the residents of
the south Macclenny neighborhood
long troubled by traffic and parking
problems that began with the open-
ing of the PreK/Kindergarten Cen-
ter a year ago.
The compromise plan will now
be submitted to the school board for
Plan A will now include:
Substitute orange road cones
to designate traffic lanes in place of
permanent painted stripes on South
A designated pick-up/drop-off
line with an enforced, staggered
line-up time for vehicle arrivals.
Painted crosswalk grids in an
east/west orientation on specified
sections of sidewalk.
Divided school bus traffic along-
two routes to prevent total concen-
tration along a single street.
Opening of additional parking
spaces on school property to pub-
Formation of a committee to
include an architect and traffic en-
gineer to study and design solutions
for possible construction of new
north/south single lane road with
ingress from South Boulevard and
egress onto Jonathan Street. Con-
struction may require a new bulk-

A 15-year-old Jacksonville male
was arrested July 15 for reckless
driving and other charges afterlead-
ing a police officer on a chase that
reached 100 miles per hour.
Deputy Garrett Bennett was
headed north on CR 125 at about
2:00 am when he saw an on oncom-
ing car in his lane traveling at an es-
timated 75 miles per hour.
He pulled off the road to avoid a
possible collision, then gave chase.
After about a mile and a half, the
driver slammed on the brakes and
slid sideways onto Clyde Newmans
He had to stop when he came to
the dead end.
The officer arrested the boy, then
asked his 17-year-old- passenger if
she'd seen his emergency lights.
"No, not at first. I wasn't paying
attention, but then [the youth] said,
'Damn, there's a cop,"' she said.
Inside the car the officer found
a partially smoked marijuana ciga-
Asked if there were any more
drugs in the car, the driver replied,
"No, I already smoked it all."

tion pond near the Baker County
Middle School track.
Many members of the traffic,
committee agree that regardless of
immediate measures taken, traf-
fic will still pose problems for the
"There has to be some compro-
mise from the school board ,and
the residents. All traffic can't be
eliminated entirely from South
Boulevard," said Gerald Dopson,
Macclenny's city manager. "We're
looking for balance and to assure
residents of a tolerable solution."
The major problem, according
to Assistant Superintendent Glen
McKendree, is the bottleneck that
results in the narrow, congested
areas immediately adjacent to the
PreK Center and the school dis-
trict's central offices.
"We changed the traffic flow pat-
tern twice just last year, trying to
relieve the bottleneck. Staggering
starting times for different classes
could provide sdme relief," he said.
Brenda Swisher, the committee.
chairperson, is concerned about
the 17 buses that will enter the area
"I've lived through it for a long
time. It's like the Indy 500 when
they come around the corner by my
house. The noise is deafening and
tlhe weight of the buses destroys the
comers of the roads around the cul-
According to school board mem-
bers on the traffic related commit-
tee, many factors contribute to traf-
fic congestion, such as the increase
in the number of bus riders as the
year progresses and parents who
must travel to multiple schools to
pick up children. ,
David Theus, who lives on Col-
lege. street near the PreK Center,
presented his own diagram with
suggestions for alternative, traffic
"The bottom line is the buses
have to go somewhere. They can't
fly in," he said with a laugh. "A so-
lution will take compromise from
all ofus ".

Keeping up with the Jones
By Jared Wilkerson
Real Estate Writer
The practice of taking on
major renovations in and
around the home used to be
an idea the majority of hom-
eowners dreaded. Whether
from a general lack of knowl-
edge on where to begin,
what direction to take, and
how to complete a home
renovation project or the
high cost of having to hire
a professional in order to
achieve the desired results,
most people put the job off
in the hopes that orange
shag carpeting would make
a tremendous comeback
However, with the grow-
ing popularity of such shows
as Designed to Sell, Flip
This House, and just about
anything else you might find
on HGTV in the& evening,
home remodeling is quickly
becoming a weekend hobby
in which a surprising num-
ber of homeowners are will-
ing to take part.
In fact, it seems that
Home Depots and Lowes
are showing up in towns
with the same regularity
as Walmart Supercenters,
making the job of finding the
right materials and guidance
to redo a kitchen as simple
as going to the store for a
loaf of bread.
Most homeowners are
content to stick to the simple
upgrades, such as installing
new countertops, updating
bathroom fixtures, or maybe
even laying down some new
ceramic tile or hardwood
flooring. Some owners, on
the other hand, are taking
home remodeling to a new
level customizing and
redesigning every facet of
the house, inside and out.
Burl and Ruth Jones of
Glen St Mary fall into the lat-
ter category. I had the plea-
sUre of meeting with them
last week for a detailed tour
of their beautiful and mas-
terfully remodeled home in
the Glenwood subdivision
just outside of town.
"The funny thing is," Burl
joked, "when we bought
this place in '88, we bought
it just the way we wanted it
and we've been remodeling
it ever since."
The Joneses moved to
the area from Tennessee as
part of a job transfer in the
late '80s. They spent almost
two full years searching for
the perfect home in which
they could settle down and
eventually retire. They were
drawn to the Glenwood
subdivision because at the
time it was the only neigh-
borhood in Baker County
that had good sized lots and
a legitimate homeowners'
If you are unfamiliar with
Glenwood, it is an extremely
hood with very few lots still
undeveloped. Every home
along its streets has a cus-
tom-built look and would
qualify, at the very least, as
a really nice home. However,
all things considered, I'd
have a hard time believing
that anyone around there is
"keeping up with the Joneses"
where itomestlo upgrades.
For those of you whose
mouths begin to water dur-
ing this description, I'll go
ahead and tell you that this
house is currently on the
.The first thing that sets
this amazing home apart
from the others is the cus-
tom automatic security gate
that adorns the stone and
brick drive at the home's
entrance. Even though the
integrity of this gate could
potentially keep just about
anyone or anything out,
the columnar brick walls at
its sides, coupled with the
gate's artistic design, make
it still somehow look rather
When I asked Mr. Jones
why he'd elect to install a
security gate in such a safe
neighborhood, he said "Well,
at the time I knew this guy
who made them and he got
me a really good deal on it."
In fact, just about all of
Mr. Jones' upgrade stories
about the house start out
with either "Well, I knew this
guy" or "I had this friend
in the business" and all
of them end with "So I got
a really good deal on the
(Top) Rear View with in ground pool at the Jones' residence.

Past the gate, visitors get
a drive-by view of the first of
two custom built sandstone
waterfall fountains along
the figure-eight gravel drive.
It winds back to the' 3-car,
fully finished, wired-for-ste-
reo detached garage toward
the rear of the property.
The front entrance of the
home was originally cedar
and had no covered entryway.
Burl and Ruth took down the
cedar and replaced it with a'
warm stone that adds a cer-
tain grandiose appearance
to the doorway. They then
laid a stone walkway from
the gravel drive and tied a
gable roof covering with col-
umns into the existing roof,
accentuating the entrance.
Once inside, they added

and crown molding to every
room even the laundry

make a much better office than a garage.
Where most people would have simply
thrown up some drywall, changed the doors
and hooked the room into central heat and
air and called it a day, Burl and Ruth (as you
might expect at this point) decided to go a
bit farther.. .well, a lot farther.
The pickled cypress ceiling made another
great appearance, as did the oak trim and
molding, but this time they decided to finish
the entire room in cypress paneling. I'm not
usually a big fan of wood panel walls, but I
guess it's not what you do, it's how you do it
because this office looks incredible.
They also took out a section of the roof
and replaced it with double-length sky-light-
ing and replaced the old doors with two
Sfloor-to-ceiling glass panels and two French
doors, providing an open and connected
feeling with the outside landscaping..
Now on to my favorite part of this home,
- the Florida room. It was originally just a
screened back porch nothing at all fancy
about it. They replaced the screens with
sliding glass windows and raised the ceiling,
from the standard flat porch style to a rising
vaulted style. They then redid all the walls
in sandstone and tiled the floor with.panels
that simulate the look of huge wooden tiles.
The cypress ceiling worked out great here
as well, as did the well placed sky-lights and
open feeling French doors.
Aside from everything just mentioned,
this room has two great things about it: The
first is that it has three separate entrances
back into the house one to the den, one to
the main living room, and one to the master
"We designed this room with entertaining
in mind," said Ruth. "If we're having a party
or gathering, we can just close all the glass
windows and open up the Whole house and
people spend most of the time out here."
The second great thing about it is the view
of the pool. This isn't your garden variety
backyard barbeque area swimming pool.
It's a free-form Olympic sized masterpiece
with its own custom sandstone waterfall and
a changing cabana, all added by Mr. and
The deck has been refinished in its entire-
ty with custom sandstone to include the
stone steps that lead down into the shallow
area. It also has a walkway leading out to a
private area of the yard with a seating area
from which the beauty of the entire scene is
easily taken in.
After the tour of the grounds, I had two
questions I was dying to ask: 1) Why did
they go through the trouble to do all of this,
and 2) How could they possibly sell and
leave this place?
"The home is meant to be a. place of
enjoyment, so why not? We both had high-
pressure jobs and this was just the perfect
place to.come back and get away from it all,"
answered Burl. "When we get back up there
to Tennessee, we plan on doing the whole
thing over again."
'Ruth, whose specialty was the breathtak-.
ing landscaping full of flowering trees and
vines, added, "It is hard. to leave it after
working with it and watch-
ing it grow all these years,
but now I guess someone
else can come and fall in
love with it and that makes. "
it all worth it."
