Creekside Oaksis

nixedby plan board

due to small lot size
Press staff
A proposed 161-home sub-development two miles north of
Macclenny will have to win county approval against the ad-
vice of Baker County's Land Planning Agency.
The LPA said at its July 26 meeting that it advised against
approval of a re-zoning request that would allow the devel-
opers of Creekside Oaks to build on quarter-acre lots in the
proposed sub-division. The stated reason for their decision
was Planning Director Ed Preston's claim that there was in-
adequate sewer and water capacity to supply the development.
However, nearby residents, who came out in force to the LPA
meeting last week, were more concerned about how the new
homes would affect their largely rural community.
The re-zoning request will next go beforethe county com-
mission on August 20.
"Most of the residents are opposed," neighbor Shannon
Randall said. "[The development is] going to make a huge
impact, a negative impact on the beauty and efficiency of the
surrounding area. It doesn't tie into the preserving of Baker
The 94 acres are currently zoned to permit one-acre lots, and
the surrounding residents all live on land either of that size or
larger. Many expressed concern that the influx of new neigh-
bors associated with 161 new homes (the figure is still tenta-
tive) would strain local roadways and schools. Terry Clayton.
a representative of developer Florida Land Ranches LLC of
Jacksonville, said the houses should be about 1,800 square feet
and sell for around $200,000.
But Wyman Duggan of Jacksonville, a lawyer representing
Florida Land and Ranches, said Creekside could pay for its
"We're going to provide ad valorem taX revenue and school
concurrency fees to help cover the cost of fire and electricity
and schools," Mr. Duggan said. "We're going to pay for that.
The county's going to make us pay our way. So in respect to
those issues, I'd like to point out that there's going to be rev-
enue generated by the development that will more than cover
its costs."
That claim was met with skepticism by the assembled resi-
dents, who at one point demanded that every member of the
planning board state for the record where they lived.
But for the LPA, the decision was largely a matter of utilities,
or lack thereof. Mr. Preston

Mr. Duggan, for his
part, said that state law and
county regulations required only that any new development
would have to be on the receiving end of adequate utilities at
the time houses were built. The developers, he said, had dis-
cussed with Macclenny city manager Gerald Dopson extend-
ing utility service to the subdivision and were optimistic about
those prospects. Nothing would be built until adequate water
and sewage hook-ups were established in the area.
Mr. Preston was not convinced.
"We have no evidence of capacity expansion permit activ-
ity," Mr. Preston said. "And after that permit is issued it still
takes a couple years before the City of Macclenny can build
another plant and put that capacity online.

going to make us hook up to the
sewer system."
To do so, the contractor
would have to bear the expense
of'running a main sewer line
south from US 90 where it cur-
rently serves commercial and
some residential properties.
The county health department
already okayed septic tanks for
the three homes.
Mayor Padgett at the past two
monthly council meetings has
proposed a size minimum inside
Glen, saying she didn't want a
town filled with small houses.
Town attorney Joel Foreman in
June said he would check to see
if an arbitrary size say 1000
square feet violates federal
housing rules. In the July meet-
ing, he ask&d for more time.
Attorney Foreman told the
mayor this week she had to issue
the approval letter required
via an agreement with the coun-
ty building office provided
the $4250 impact fee was paid
the proper zoning was in place.
The mayor said she would do so
on Tuesday.
The county issues permits
and conducts inspections for
Glen St. Mary, which does not
have its own department.
Mr. Maloney in his July 25
letter to county building offi-
cial Bob Hathcox stated that if
Mr. Dugard didn't get the go
ahead, he would seek to force
it and seek costs, attorney, fees
and possible damages from the
Mr. Dugard said on Monday
he didn't have a problem with a
minimum square foot rule, but it
has to be enacted by Glen as an
ordinance before the mayor can
legally deny commencement
letters. He cited other, recently
constructed homes in the same
general neighborhood, some of
them privately built and others
funded by grants.
Other contractors have put
1200 square foot homes on the
market in the $170,000 range,
and the three he plans for An-
drews St. will carry a top price
tag of $125,000.
"We plan to get into the mar-
ket just below some of the oth-
ers, for people who can't qual-
ify in the higher range for the
smaller houses," he explained.

"The main difference is the oth-
ers have garages and porches."
Macclenny rejected the mini-
mum square foot rule in favor of
a system loosely regulating sim-
ilar home sizes to those already
in the neighborhood.
"We look at it from the
standpoint that we don't want
too small of a house in an area
where the homes are larger and
visa versa," said City Manager
Gerald Dopson. "In the core
city, for instance, we'd be will-
ing to allow smaller houses
similar to ones already there.
In the newer areas with sub-
divisions, the minimums are
set by the developer anyway."

officer, when he attempted to
arrest Mr. Kendry on Quail St.,
the suspect ran away toward
Lowder St. When police found
him there, he turned around and
fled back toward Quail.
There, Sgt. Crews said, chil-
dren pointed at a house and
said he was in the residence.
While Deputy Crews searched
the house, he was told by a 14-
year-old boy that Mr. Kendry
had punched him, knocked him

to the ground and kicked him in

The officer found Mr. Kendry
hiding in a bedroom closet. The
suspect then rushed out and re-

was then that he tasered Mr.,
Kendry, who attempted to get off
the floor. According to Deputy
Crews, four taser charges were
fired before Mr. Kendry finally
gave up.
In addition to the offense
stated in the warrant, he was
charged with battery of the

A 39-year old Glen St. Mary
resident was booked on multiple
charges for allegedly pushing his
wife off the porch of their resi-
dence, then threatening his son
and a friend with a sawed-off
shotgun the evening of July 23.
Steven Thomas Sr., 39, was
reportedly angry with wife Lisa,
40, for not cooking and shoved
her off the porch into their front
yard off Orbey Rhoden Rd., ac-
cording to the report by Deputy
Erik Deloach.
The suspect's son, Steven Jr.,
then went to his mother's de-

deputy he had been drinking all

son and witness Brian Hance, 23,

The elder Mr. Thomas' face

Column most shameful'
Dear Editor:
This letter is a reply to Andrew Bare's column two weeks ago [on
prayer before county commission meetings]. It was the most shame-
ful thing I've ever read.
I don't know how long Mr. Bare has lived in Baker County. I've
been here 39 -years and have known many of our officials. I'll be the
first to agree that we have our problems, but you've never seen prob-
lems until you stop seeking wisdom'from God.'
[Commissioner] Gordon Crews isn't the first to ask for wisdom
from God before making decisions that affect our lives. Further, prove
to me there isn't a God; I'd love to tell you what God has done for
There is enough evidence today in our world to show what happens
when prayer is no longer invited into government decisions. To our
leaders, I would suggest they keep praying, even if they have to only
in their homes or their cars.
I don't write this in anger, but in compassion. I'll pray for Mr. Bare
that God will bless his confused mind and clarify the reasons why
there should always be prayer in everything we do. The commission-
ers know where wisdom lies, and I appreciate them for consulting
Almighty God on my behalf.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday August 2, 2007 Page 5

Retiring fc

earlyon th
Press Staff
Amid a cadre of various north
Florida firefighting units, gov-
ernment officials, friends and
family gathered at an apprecia-
tion lunch at the ag center July
20 to toast veteran Forest Ser-
vice supervisor Steve Holman
for 23 years of service.
SLike many youngsters, Mr.
Holman, who grew up in Tal-
lahassee, was fascinated by
fire. That fascination lead him
straight from high school gradu-
ation into the training program
with the Florida Department of
Forestry in 1972 (he still has his
original letter of acceptance).
He breezed through the re-
quired two weeks of training at
Camp Blanding. Before he knew
it, he was sent out, solo, to con-
tain a reported fire.
Unknown to the 18-year-old
Holman, his supervisor Sam
Lollie, was watching nearby.
The young firefighter drove his
plow to the sight, accessed the
situation and followed to the let-
ter the procedures he had been
taught to contain a blaze.
"I was really nervous, said
Mr. Holman. "But that changed
quickly. I was overwhelmed with
a sense of satisfaction, think-
ing 'There's nothing better than
this. This is what I'm supposed
to do."'
Now, after a career of pre-
yenting and fighting forest fire,
Mr. Holman has retired. But that
doesn't, mean this veteran fire
fighter's blaze will be going out.
He plans to make himself avail-
able for fire duty in other parts
of the country.
Mr. Holman's wife Gail sup-
ports her husband's continued
involvement in the career that he
has loved.
"I've always had confidence
in Steve because he had such
confidence in his own abilities,"
she said. "I never worried when
he was at a fire. I never once
doubted that he wouldn't come
back home."
Six years into the job, Mr.
Holman was featured in a news-
paper article in the March 8,
1978 issue of The Tallahassee
Democrat entitled: "A forest
is his office; fire and wind his
tools" which enlightened the
public to the methods of prevent-
ing and fighting forest fire.
After cutting his teeth as a
ranger with the DOF, Mr. Hol-
man trainedin personnel and
went on to work as a forest
ranger supervisor, then an area
supervisor. He ultimately settled
it Baker County, making Mac-
clenny his home.
'- During the luncheon, Mr.
Holman was lauded by co-work-
ers not shy about expressing
their feelings:
S"Steve is a true friend you can
count on. You see his leadership
skills if you look at the folks he
works with and those he leaves
"His was always a good face
to see out on the line."
"He was cool under fire. Al-
ways calm and reassuring."
"A big-time role model."
"Always a kind word and a

self a lucky man. If he had to do
it all over again he says the only
thing he'd do different is pursue
a college degree first.
"Education is very impor-

The sheriff's department
arrested Macclenny resident
Mary Wisneski, 45, July 29 and
charged her with driving on a
suspended license.
Lt. Glenn Gnann said in his
report that Ms. Wisneski's 1989
BMW sedan had a license plate
registered to another vehicle.
When he pulled her over at the
corner of SR 121 and CR 228
north of Macclenny and ran Ms.
Wisneski's driver's license, it
came back as being suspended
seven times.
In another report, police ar-
rested Travis Smith, 27, of Glen
St. Mary and charged him with
driving on a suspended license
July 25 in Macclenny.
According to Deputy Curtis
Ruise, he saw a yellow four-
wheeler turn south onto Martin
Luther King Dr. and the driver
conversing with two men on
the side of the road. According
to the officer, Mr. Ruise tried to
speed off when he saw the dep-
uty's car.
Deputy Ruise said Mr.

Smith's license came back as
having been suspended 10 times.
Mr. Smith told the officer that he
was trying to head back to Glen
St. Mary.

Children from families whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible
for free or reduced price meals.
Only one free and reduced price meal application is needed for each family.
If approved for free or reduced price meals, each child living in your household and
attending a Baker County public school listed on the family mealapplication would
be eligible. If applying for more than one Foster Child. (a legal responsibility of a
welfare agency or court) in your household, you must complete a separate applica-
tion for each child.
Application forms are being sent to all homes with a lener to parent or guardians.
To apply for free or reduced price meals, an adult in the household should fill out the
application and return it to the school. Copies are also available at the principal's of-
fice in each school. If you have questions, or need assistance completing the applica-
tion, call the Nutrition Services office at (904) 259-4330.
The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of de-
termining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school
and/or other program officials.
Households that receive Food Stamps or TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy
Families) are required to list on the application only the children's names in your
household attending a Baker County Public School and their corresponding food
stamp numbers or TANF case numbers, and written name and signature of adult
household member.
For the school officials to determine eligibility, all other households must provide
the following information listed on the application:
(1) names of all children in your household attending a Baker County Public
(2) names of all household members related or not;
(3) the total gross income received last month and how often it was received next
to the name of the household member receiving the income under the appropriate
column as to the type of income it is (such as earnings from work, child support,
social security, etc.);
(4) Social Security number of the adult signing the application or check the box
indicating they do not have a Social Security number,
(5) and the signature of an adult household member certifying that the informa-
tion provided is correct.
Households that have a household member in the military and receive housing
allowance as part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, should not include
their housing allowance as income. All other allowance must be included in their
gross income.
Households with deployed service members are to consider them as part of their
household and to report only the portion of the deployed service member's income
made available to the household. Any other income for other members in the house-
hold should be reported.
Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.
Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal policy, each school will
review applications and determine temporary eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dis-
satisfied with the ruling of the official, he/she may wish to discuss the decision with
the determining official on an informal basis. If the parent wishes to make a formal
appeal, he/she may make a request for a hearing either verbally by contacting the
Nutrition Services office at 259-4330, or in writing to: Office of the Superintendent,
392 South Blvd. East, Macclenny, Florida 32063. The policy contains an outline of
the hearing procedure.
If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes,
the school should be contacted. Such changes may allow the children of the house-
hold to become eligible for reduced price meals, or for additional benefits such as
free meals, if the household income falls at or below the levels shown above.
In certain cases, foster children are also eligible for these benefits. If a household
has foster children living with them and wishes to apply for such meals for the foster
child/student, the household should contact the school for more information.
If you are applying for a child that is homeless, migrant, or a runaway call your
child's school or the Nutrition Services office at (904) 2594330.
Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the free and
reduced price meal application may be used by the school system in determining
whether the child is eligible for other educational programs.

Twelve students from across
the nation, inlcuding one from
Glen St. Mary, earned full schol-
arships to attend the inaugural
Mark Twain Young Authors
Workshop held June 25-29.
Breanna Hembree, a rising
sixth grader who will begin at-
tending Jacksonville's Douglas
Anderson School of the Arts in
the fall, was chosen from 120
applicants to participate in the
weeklong event described as a
summer school of adventure,

shop took place in Hannibal,
Missouri. Mark Twain's home-
After learning about the com-
petition on line, Ms. Hembree,
who has always been interested
in writing and is a fan of the poet

Sylvia Plath,
submitted a
portfolio of
writing sam-
ples which
included fic-
tion and po-
etry. Among
her submis-
sions was
"The Mir-

about a young
woman who
escapes from
an abusive
parent by

world behind
the reflection
of a mirror.

The workshop was a joint
project between Stetson Univer-

Bugaboo Fire teams treated to BBQdinner..
Local businesses teamed with county and state employees to show appreciation for
fighters of Bugaboo fire with an appreciation dinner at the ag center on July 12.
Here Chief Public Defender Rick Parker, left, and State Attorney Bill Cervone pose
while helping dish out food in the serving line. According to county manager Joe
Cone, the dinner catered by Taylor'd Barbeque and Lyman Greene Barbeque, both
of Macclenny, was to show the county's gratitude to state, county and municipal
firefighters who helped battle the Bugaboo Fire that claimed 122,643 acres of public
forest land in Baker and Columbia Counties this spring. Andy Bales, chairman of the
Baker County Democratic Party, coordinated the event and enlisted donations from
a number of local businesses to help defray the cost.

Compressors snatched

A commercial air compressor
that had been bolted to a concrete
floor was stolen from a motorcy-

a grassy back field to nearby CR
139B, and there was evidence
inside the Hawg Rider shop on

'Order of the Phoenix

a worthy entry to series

Press Staff
Whether you've read ev-
ery single Harry Potter book or
have never picked up one of the
mega-popular fantasy novels,
Harry Potter and the Order of
the Phoenix is a very entertain-
ing movie: It is very different
from its predecessors dark
and ,,ti.iihldtt llh.id, providing
edge of the seat excitement and
a good way to spend a summer
afternoon or evening.
I've seen all the Harry Potter
movies, but read a couple of the
bestselling books. My wife and
two of my kids have read them
all. As a result, we had different
takes on Order of the Phoenix.
Dylan and I liked it from start
to finish. Kelley, Spencer and
Sara groused a little.
"The book is better," said
Kelley. "There are a lot of things
that you need to have explained.
There are a lot of things that they
leave out that could have been
taken care of with just a couple
of extra lines of dialogue."
I was ignorant of all of that so
could only judge by what I saw
on the screen. I liked what I saw.
When you have the respon-
sibility of taking a classic book
and translating it for the screen
n. matter what you do is going
to please everyone. I am a huge
fan of The Lord of the Rings.
I've read it half a dozen times
since high school. Director Peter
Jackson agonized over trying to
stay true to the 1200 page trilogy.
But he couldn't film everything.
As a result, there was a lot that I
hissed seeing on screen that my
WNife, who has never read the tril-
qgy, didn't know was there. So
the tables were turned.
This was the first big budget
feature film for veteran British
television director David Yates.
Rather than get caught up in the
details of the world of Hogwarts
School, he chose a straight for-
Ward narrative line, telling the
rain story as efficiently as pos-
The result is a movie that is
well-piced, edg, dark and sims-
ter, with lots of action and strong
characterization. It's enjoyable
ahd exciting and a movie that is
never dull.
Harry Potter fans have either
loved it or hated it. On the In-
ternet Movie Data Base (imdb.
com), the fan reactions have been
positive "The best Harry Pot-
ter yet" or negative "THIS GUY
lot of it depends on what you are
looking for in the movie experi-
I came back and read the book
and there was a lot left out that
I would have loved to see in the
film. But that doesn't make the
movie bad. It just makes the
book richer.
The film follows Harry (Dan-
iel Radcliffe) Hermoine (Emma
Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint)
as they enter their fifth year at
Hogwarts School. Harry is in
danger of being expelled for us-
ing magic in public. He fought
off a pair of soul stealing demen-
tors who had come to kill him.
It seems that the Ministry of
Magic doesn't believe the evil
Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes),
who Harry battled to a standstill
at the end of the last movie, has
come back to life and are out to
discredit Harry and Dumbledore
(Michael Gambon).
To do so, the Ministry as-
signs one of its own, Delores
Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) to
teach at the school and act as
Inquisitor. Umbridge takes an
immediate dislike to Harry and
seeks to have Dumbledore and
most of the teachers removed.
Delores Umbridge is far and
away the best villain yet in the
Harry Potter series. She is abso-
lutely despicable, but with a po-
lite smile on her face that makes
her all the more sinister. She is
a character that you love to hate
and you can't wait for her to get
her comeuppance.
Unlike Voldemort, Umbridge

is at the school, wrecking havoc
and undermining all Dumb-
ledore's plans to protect Harry
and find and destroy the evil
The acting has improved im-
mensely as the films progressed.
The young actors are aging and
the story ages along with them.
Author J.K. Rowling wrote the

original books in the Harry Potter
series for kids. But as her readers
aged, so have the characters, and
she has stretched herself as an
author. The books have become
darker. The movies have become
darker as well.
The last film, Harry' Potter
and the Goblet of Fire, started
that trend and it has continued
here. Harry is broody, moody
and angry throughout much of
the film. He has reconciled with
Ron, who disliked him through-
out most of the last film, but not
with his past.
Radcliffe does a good job
with Harry Potter as do Watson
and Grint with his sidekicks. The
movie is well acted with classi-
cally trained British veterans like
Maggie Smith (McGonagal),
Emma Thompson (Trelawney)
Helena Bonham Carter (Beatrix),
Fiennes,'Alan Rickman (Snape),
Robby Coltrane (Hagrid) and
Gambon, as well as American
Oscar nominees like Gary Old-
man (Sirrius Black).
Yates understands what he
wants to do with the material
and does it. He knew he would
get a lot of flack from Harry Pot-
ter fans and he has. But the final

Fire and smoke damage was
contained to a relatively small
area following a fire at Westside
Elementary the morning of July
As of early this week, the
clean-up effort in and around a
teacher office in the school east
of Glen St. Mary was nearly
complete, and the incident will
not delay readying the building
for the start of the school year
later this month.
County chief Richard Dolan
said sparks or embers from a
welding torch fell through the
ceiling from the roof, igniting
combustible tiles and walls in
Room 134 used as an office by

teachers. Workers were on the
roof that morning as part of the
recently-let contract to replace
aging air chillers atop the main
building constructed nearly 35
years ago on Madison St.
County and Macclenny units
responded shortly after an alarm
went off minutes after 11:00,
and the fire was quickly extin-
guished. There was no immedi-
ate damage estimate, but the af-
termath necessitated removal of
lighting, walls and carpet.
Smoke of varying density
drifted through the building, and
was cleared by fire volunteers
using fans. Chief Dolan's report
notes that a thermal camera was
used to detect the presence of
heat or secondary fires.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are
back in action and judging from
the size, of the crowds at train-
ing camp, fans are happy to see
them on the field. Over 4000
fans packed the grandstands at
the practice field on Monday to
see the team lineup for the first
practice in pads.
Practice was highlighted by
the Oklahoma drill, a one-on-
one competition to see who is the
toughest. Players line up with an
opponent and try to knock him
down or get around him. It can
get verrrry physical and verrrry
rough. Fans and players alike
love it.
The training camp is a good
time to get up close with the Jag-
uars. There are exclusive camp
concessions and t-shirts, and
parking is free. Fans can get au-

It's been a rough few weeks
for sports fans, but finally some
good news.
Cal Ripkin Jr. and Tony Gw-
ynn were inducted into the Base-
ball Hall of Fame, and two more
deserving candidates couldn't
have made the grade.
Ripkin Jr. received 98% of
the ballots and Gwynn 97% in a
landslide first ballot. Both were,
shoe-ins, of course. It was mere-
ly a question of waiting for five
years after retirement to become
Ripkin Jr. replaced Lou Geh-
rig as baseball's Ironman and
Tony Gwynn was themost con-
sistent hitter of his generation,
but they were much more. In an
era of huge salaries and question-
able performances, they were the
blue collar guys. They worked
hard, got the job done day in
and day out.
They did it with incredible
class as well. If you look for role
models in sports,these guys were
it. Baseball sorely needs more
Cal Ripkin Jr.s and Tony Gw-
ynns. So does sport in general.
Their story was a rare bright
spot in a week filled with bad
news. Bill Walsh, the football
genius who led the San Francis-
co 49er football dynasty, died of
leukemia. Walsh, credited with

revolutionizing offensive foot-
ball at the Niners, only coached
10 years in the NFL. But during
his ten years he won a trio of Su-
per Bowls, made Joe Montana a
Hall of Famer and brought Jerry
Rice into the league. He created
complicated, remarkably elegant
offenses and taught some of the
best of today's coaches includ-
ing Mike Holmgrin, Mike Sha-
nahan, Jon Gruden, Jeff Fisher,
Sam Wyche, Dennis Green, Ray
Rhodes, Pete Carroll and Jim
Mora Jr.
Mike Vick.is back in trouble.
Vick's partner in Bad Newz
Kennels claims that Vick bank-
rolled dog fights and his ani-
mals were tortured to make them
mean. It is also alleged the Fal-
con quarterback purchased land
to be developed into a dog fight-
ing compound.
Vick is currently barred from
Falcon training camp by NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The Tour de France is finally
over with Spaniard Alberto Con-
tador winning for the Discovery
Channel team by 23 seconds.
Several of the leaders dismissed
for blood doping, and the event
was under the microscope from
the start with stars Alexander Vi-
nokourov and Michael Rassmus-
sen sent packing. That would
be like suspending Jeff Gordon
and Dale Jr. or A-Rod and Ken
Griffey Jr.
It's been a gray week. I'm
glad that Cal and Tony provided
some sun.
