is called into question
Baker County owns nine acres on the Georgia side
of the St. Mary's River that's littered with garbage,
furniture, busted appliances, bricks and at least one
old tire.
Sending inmates crews to
clean it up will solve the problem
for now, but County Commis- By
sioner Gordon Crews wants to Joel
see a more permanent solution.
"We have to do something," Addington
he said after informing fellow
commissioners January 20 about Press Staff
a complaint he got from an adja-
cent landowner. The owner lives in Baker County and
expressed concern about people congregating on the
property and leaving trash behind.
"They said they've even seen soap and towels like
somebody is bathing there and sleeping in their truck
or whatever," said Mr. Crews.
Real estate developer John Curtis of Gainesville
donated the property to Baker County in 2003. It's lo-
cated northeast of the river and immediately west of
SR 121.
"It's a nice piece of property," said County Manager
Joe Cone. However, much of the land is included in
the flood plain and unsuitable for traditional develop-
Mr. Cone toured the property January 21 and said
it's obvious the site has been used for dumping, but
that the volume of trash and debris was not excessive.
"I've seen a whole lot worse than that," said Mr.
Cone. "But we own it and we need to take care of it."
The county has several options: sell the property,
use it or give it away. An attempt to donate the property
was rebuffed by Charlton County in 2005, however.
Mr. Cone said with some signs and parking, it could
be designated a canoe launch. "It would be a great.
place to camp," he said.
In the absence-of any plans though, Mr. Crews
asked, "Why keep it?"
Even if a purpose existed for the property, he ques-
tioned how the county would maintain and police land
across the state line.
"It doesn't seem natural to send Baker County of-
ficers into Georgia if something were to happen out
there or to run somebody off that's shooting or trash-
ing the place," said Mr. Crews. "That just seems more
of a hassle than anything."

Local officials expected to
have those payments by the
first of the year, however; upon
closer inspection of the effec-
tive date in Cedar Creek's de-

payment deadline is February
14, Mr. Cone said.
When Baker County Medi-

pushed back, which in turn de-

S"They can't eveii agree on how much it should
be," he said of thb stimulus package. There's also
a push by city and county governments to secure
direct distribution of stimulus funds at the local
But regardless of how the money is handed out,
the manager believes it's helpful to have a list of
projects ready and waiting when that happens.
The Baker County Commission's list includes
$4.4 million for road paving, $1.6 million for new
fire and EMS stations, and about $750,000 to en-
sure the county's new administration building and
library addition get completed.
Although work on the latter two projects is be-
ing funded through state grants already, Mr. Cone
said those resources will likely come up short. The
stimulus package funding could pickup where the
grants leave off.
.The roughly $800,000 in grants the county's
budgeted for the new administration building may
not cover the $700,000 construction cost, engineer-
ing and architectural plans, and the money needed
to renovate the existing administration offices for
courthouse operations.
"We'll have to spend some of that here," Mr.
Cone said.
Recent bids on the library addition also came in
about $50,000 over the available grant funds.
The road and fire station projects, however, have
no identified funding sources.
Mr. Cone said the county could have plans ready
to resurface 15 miles of CR 125, which is estimated

Nine representatives from
those agencies met January 27
at the Chamber of Commerce
with the county's lobbyist, Chris

specific to Baker County.
A similar effort was under-
taken in Jefferson County that

"It's been a unified approach
to things they can be unified

The county commission hired
Mr. Doolin for $2500 a month to
lobby on its behalf for the next
five months and County Manag-
er Joe Cone said there could be
a separation of what's part of the
county commission's legislative
agenda and what all the mem-
bers of the coalition are united
in representing as its agenda.
That's doesn't mean goals
for both groups can't overlap

"I also have a conceptual layout for a fire sta-
tion," Mr. Cone said.
The layout calls for 10,000 square feet and has
a price tag of about $800,000. The $1.6 million
funding request is intended to replace the Glen and
Sanderson stations and use the new structures for
fire and EMS services.
Two other projects restoration of the 98-year-
old Old Baker County Jail and work associated
with the St. Mary's Shoals Park being planned off
Odis Yarborough Rd. were also added to the list
this week.
At the old jail, the county hopes to secure $75,000
to put towards lead paint removal, renovation of the
electrical system and lighting fixtures, a handicap-
compliant elevator and additional parking.
The St. Mary's Shoals Park request is twice as
large at $250,000. Mr. Cone said it could help\fund
water, -sewer and irrigation infrastructure at the
park's entrance facilities as well as the installation
of turn lanes off Odis Yarborough Road.
The City of Macclenny hopes to take advantage
of federal stimulus funds too, with plans for three
infrastructure projects totaling about $9 million,
said City Manager Gerald Dopson.
The projects include enlarging the city's waste-
water treatment plant, extending utility pipes to
connect them into a looped system and buying
property for retention ponds to ease flooding in the
northeastern portion of the city.

cohesive lobbyinggroup...

The group agreed that al-
though each respective branch
of local government has its own
needs and interests, there are
also common issues that could
benefit from a show of commu-
nity-wide support.
"There's strength in num-
bers," said County Commission-
er Mike Griffis.
In discussing potential items
of the joint legislative agenda,
participants expressed support
for protecting jobs at-Northeast
Florida State Hospital and Baker
Correctional Institute, opposing
cuts in state funding and protect-
ing against the shifting costs for
state programs to local govern-
ments, something often called
unfunded mandates.
Formal adoption of a coali-
tion agenda and how it will func-
tion will go before each agency's
governing board for approval, as
will the matter of possible assis-
tance to the county in funding

"We'll have to get with our

board to see if they're enthusi-
astic about it," said Macclenny
City Manager Gerald Dopson.
Shortly thereafter Phil Rhoden,
a city commissioner who attend-
ed the meeting as well, said he
would recommend to his fellow
board members "pick up some
of the tab."
Mr. Griffis added that par-
ticipation in formulating the
coalition's agenda is important,

Ocean Bank of Miami filed a
lawsuit against Adrian Develop-
ment last October to foreclose on
16 acres in Doral, Fla. that the
company bought for about $11
million with plans for a mixed-
use project, reported South
Florida Business Journal. That
project included 363 residential
units and 125,000 square feet
of commercial, retail and office
The property was cleared but
construction never began.
In return for the extension
on Cedar Creek, which county
commissioners will have to ap-
prove first, Mr. Cone.said he
wants the $250,000 due Febru-
ary 14 to pave Cow Pen Rd. and
for Adrian to fulfill its contract
to purchase 20 acres of surplus
county land at its appraised val-
ue, $280,000.
Mr. Cone said the county
bought the land for $83,000
with the intention of using it for
four recreational fields, but later
discovered there wasn't enough
space to accommodate those
"We couldn't-make it work,"
he said.
The land was advertised for
sale in 2007 and Adrian was the
only respondent, likely because
it borders the Cedar Creek prop-
erty. Mr. Cone said Adrian con-
tracted to buy the land but the
county later extended the sale
deadline indefinitely.
The Economic Development
Commission's situation is more
imminent though.
It planned on using $1.3 mil-
lion from the, developer an
initial $325,000 payment plus
another $975,000 to buy
more property for an industrial

before January 29.

TARP-trillion dollars of madness

I might be going crazy.
Never in my brief 61 years on the
planet did I think we'd see the Era of the
Before I get started, take note that the
current madness in the US Congress isn't
an Obama vs. Bush matter. Both the re-
cently departed president and the new
one have fingerprints all over the TARP
(Troubled Asset Relief Program) pulled
out of the congressional hat after the col-
lapse of the'housing (then banking) in-
dustry, a calamity that history will show
was largely the fault of Congress urg-
ing banks to make loans to people who
couldn't repay them.
Here's the plan: A trillion dollars will
be turned loose (money the government
is essentially pulling out of mid-air) to
bolster up sagging financial and other
markets. A portion is promised for a
massive infrastructure effort to build or
refurbish public sector assets like roads,
bridges, schools, fire stations and sewer
Everybody's getting into the act. Last
week during a pre-legislative briefing
in Tallahassee, I heard officials from
the governor down through the Florida
House and Senate leadership talking
about "bail-out money" as a key to eas-
ing the state's financial woes brought on
by the dearth of tax revenue.
Baker County's getting in on the act
(see related article in this edition), put-
ting in a bid for some of the money and
hoping it will trickle down the pipeline
for a fire station or a paved road.

It's madness; when you turn on the
money spigot to this magnitude, you pro-
portionately increase the likelihood for
misbehavior as it's spent. The scale is so
enormous, it's uncontrollable.
Government at all levels, and subse-
quently the public's reliance on govern-
ment assistance, has grown so uncon-
trolled the past 60 years that when things
go.sour, guess who everyone looks to?
Government's response? Spend more.
Are some fixes in order? Of course.
If the government, federal state and'
local, has any involvement in this recov-
ery it should take the form of getting out
of the way and allowing the free market
system (remember that?) to ,be the dy-
namic force.
How will that happen?
We're must re-define the word "suffer-
ing." I seldom watch TV news anymore
because too often it focuses on the "suf-
fering" of this group or that.

having less income to spend and it's not
having the credit market dry up.
Governments can get involved in a
productive way. Give us back more of
the money we make. If they are fixated
on the "trillion dollar" figure fine. Use
TARP to fund existing government func-
tions and give us all a break on paying in-"
come taxes for one year. We'll spend the
money on things that have a much better
chance at "jump starting" the economy
than a new fire station. Things that will
benefit private business and create jobs.
President Obama has pledged to take
a new look at federal government spend-
ing line by line. If it's not working,
he wants to get rid of it. I'll believe that
when I see it, but the goal is noble.
A reduction in the tax burden all
around income tax, corporate tax,
capital gains .tax while government
continues to spend well beyond its means
is meaningless. Real "change" is reduced
government spending as a portion of our
gross national product.
Combine those two factors and throw
TARP into the trash heap of history where
it belongs.
Anything less is madness.

Caylee Anthony doll

strikes the wrong chord

It would proba- T

someone in the
state of Florida
who doesn't rec-
ognize the name
Caylee Anthony. KELLEY L
The case of the
Orlando child who
went missing back in July and whose
remains were discovered months lat-
er in a vacant lot near her grandpar-
ents home, has been sensationalized
to the extreme by such media forums
as CNN's legal analysis show Nancy
GFace. ,. ... -.
sey Anthony, the child's mother,
has been charged recently with the
murder of her three-year-old daugh-
ter. The situation has taken a heavy
toll on the entire Anthony family,
of course, especially Ms. Anthony's
' How could it not when all evidence
indicates that your daughter is a liar
and a thief, and perhaps devious and
cold-hearted enough to have killed
her own child and tried to cover it
It's easy to understand the public's
outcry and demonstration against
Casey Anthony.
Children still embody innocence
in the collective psyche of society.
Injury or death of a small child, al-
legedly at the hands of an adult re-
sponsible for their care, is reprehen-
sible. When that adult is the mother,
the public consensus of such an act
moves into the realm of unconscio-
nable and inconceivable.
Another situation indirectly re-
lated to the Caylee Anthony case
resulted in another outcry of protest
from the public the sale of Caylee
Anthony dolls.
The public has blasted Jackson-
ville-based company Showbiz Pro-
motions, which is behind the project,
for what it considers the poor taste.
As of January 27, the company has
put plans to launch the sale of the
doll on hold.
Showbiz Promotions describes its
product line as "newsworthy gifts"
and states on its Web site that it spe-
cializes in the creation of products
inspired directly from the news head-
My initial reaction on reading
about the dolls was no doubt the same
as many people disgust, followed
by the inevitable question: Why in the
world would anyone do such a thing?
Being a journalist, I know I can't just

The company
kNNIGAN seems to market
mostly T-shirts
devoted to spe-
cific categories: President Obama,
the Christian community, the Florida
Gators and Jaguar sports fans, plus a
miscellaneous category. Their items
inspired by news headlines are the
Michael Vick Dog Chew Toy, Sara
Palin's glasses, a Tim Tebow t-shirt
that features a football helmet and a
biblical scripture, a T-shirt devoted
to the late Anna Nicole Simpson's
daughter DannyLynn that says
"Who's Your Daddy?" and others.
Oh, there's also the shirt that says
"I Believe in Big Foot" and of course,
the ill-fated "Caylee Anthony Inspi-
rational Sunshine Doll."
The company backs up its justifi-
cation for the doll with what sound
like legitimate and even compassion-
ate reasons to raise awareness and
money to help stop crinies against
children. It contends that the doll was
created as a remembrance of "how
we embrace a child that didn't get a
chance to sing her song in life."
This last refers to the fact that the
doll sings a recorded version of "You
Are My Sunshine," the song Caylee
Anthony sang in the now famous
video footage of her.
The doll is not an exact image of
the child, which would have been
too creepy, so that at least is a relief.
Funds from the sale of the doll, ac-
cording to,the company's president
Jaime Salcedo, were to go to an un-
named agency devoted to helping the
cause of missing and exploited chil-

Sanderson for several thefts in
September, 2008.
Mr. Johnson pleaded no con-

Man arrested trying to

leave Walmart with bat

stuffed into
A number of shoplifting ar-
rests were made at the Mac-
clenny Walmart the past week,
including a Jacksonville man at-
tempting to leave the store with
a baseball bat stuffed in the front
of his pants.
Lloyd Touchton, 21, had mo-
ments before produced a comput-
er memory card and a game call
device from his jacket pocket.
"I asked [the suspect] if he,
had anything else, to which he
replied 'I have something in the
front of my pants,'" reads an ar-
rest report by Cpl. Ben Ander-
son. "As I checked the front of
[his] pants I found and pulled out
a red in color baseball bat."
The value of the bat and other
items was $51.
Police were called to the store
about 12:40 am on January 21
to check out several suspicious
persons, and Deputy Matt Sigers
said he questioned three of them
in the parking lot. Cpl. Anderson
confronted another suspect, Bri-
an Perotta, 19, of Jacksonville,
and he was charged with disor-
derly intoxication for urinating
in the parking lot.
His accomplice Mr. Touchton
also allegedly yelled and cursed

The afternoon of January 25,
Sandra Thompson, 42, of Mac-

observed Ms. Thompson in sev-
eral areas of the store. She paid
for some merchandise before
attempting to leave. The purse
contents ranged from razors to
batteries and a DVD. Total value
of the pilfered items was $105.

have been taken during a night
burglary at the Games Galore
Store on South 6th in Macclenny
on January 24.
It marks the third time in three
months a business has been en-
tered in the Macclenny area dur-
ing the night using a hole .bored
through a wall. The other two
were pawn shops.
Store manager Reynolds Kin-
ney told Deputy Michael Hauge
the initial loss estimate was made
on the basis of a cursory inven-
tory the morning of the burglary.
Police were called to the re-
tently opened store after a land-
scaper noted a broken window
on an adjoining storefront. A
rear door was also found open,
and the intruder or intruders had
entered the game store through a
hole in the wall leading from the
vacant store.
Inventory items were strewn
on the ground behind the game
store, and the scene was pro-
cessed for clues, including foot-

Alhambras A Closer Walk'


Press Staff
Alhambra Dinner Theatre's
current show,.A Closer Walk
With Patsy Cline, is a skillfully
staged and performed musical
tribute to the woman who is
considered in many arenas to be
one of the most acclaimed and
influential female vocalists of
the 20th century.
Actor and vocalist Gail Bliss
puts forth a polished portrayal
of the late country music star
who died tragically at the height
of her career at age 30. In life.

ability to
connect 'on a
very human level with her fans.
Ms. Bliss successfully blends all
those characteristics as well as
a truly wonderful singing voice
in a performance that was worth
every penny of the ticket price.
The musical showcases the
highlights of Patsy Cline's mu-
sic and career through a series
of short vignettes presented in.
chronological sequence.
The-story opens in 1947 at
radio station WINC in the town
of Winchester, Virginia, where
the intrepid 14-year-old Patsy,
known then. as Ginny, showed
up unannounced. She persuades
Joltin' Jim McCoy, whose band
plays a 30-minute slot on the
radio's Saturday show, to let her
And sing she does, not even
letting the fact that she has to
stand on her tiptoes to reach the
microphone stop her.
The story ends at the radio
station, too, when the on-air an-
nouncer receives a telegram that
Patsy Cline, now the queen of
"The Nashville Sound" has been
killed in a plane crash. The year
was 1963.
The cast is marvelous in sup-

Little Big Man. He serves as
narrator throughout the story,
expounding on the facts of Ms.
Cline's developing career from
his desk at station WINC.
He shows up also as the Grand
Old Opry entertainer String
Bean and as comedian George
Burns at the Carnegie Theatre in
New York City. These wonder-
ful comedic interludes keep the
audience engaged during Ms.
Bliss' many costume changes.
The sets and lighting, de-
sig ned

David Dionne and Ken-
neth Uibel, are simple and ef-
fective. As the story unfolds,
lighted signs on the stage clue
you into the actual locations Ms.
Cline performed in during her
rise to fame, from bars, honky
tonks and recording studios, to
the Grand Old Opry, the Merri-
ment Casino in Las Vegas and
finally Carnegie Hall in New,
York City.
One of Baker County's owni,
Donald Waters, owner of Pier
Six Restaurant:in Macclenny,
was in the'audience during a'
recent performance and ended
up in the spotlight with "Patsy."
During the sequence portray-,
ing the Las Vegas show, the star
turned her attentions on Mr. Wa-
ters, rubbing his head and hug-
ging him as she belted out Baby,
That's How Much I Love You.

musical pedigree, many with
numerous studio, television and
theatrical credits unto them-
The five-man ensemble fea-

My favorite scene in the show
was when Patsy and her band
gathered on one end of the stage
at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, a
favorite haunt next door to the
Grand Old Opry where singers
and musicians often met for in-
formal jam sessions.
It's in this scene that the
group performs Blue Moon of
Kentucky, the only acoustic song
in the show. The performers are
so close to the audience, they are
practically sitting among them.
I loved the steel guitar and the
muffled cow bell percussion in
this number.
A Closer Walk With Patsy
Cline is a whole lot of fun. The
show runs through February 15.

Cats go 2-1 the past week

Beat Tigers, Indians; loss to Bradford

It was an up and down week
for Wildcat boys' basketball.
The team notched a win against
Union County, lost to Bradford
and then posted a sloppy victory
over Baldwin to run their record
to 16-5 overall and 7-2 in the dis-
The inside game was the key
to the victory over Union County
in Lake Butler on Jan. 20. Ike
Parker, who has been hitting his
scoring stride over the last few
games, had his best outing of
the season' offensively. Parker
knocked down 22 points to be
the game high scorer.
Parker's control of the inside
lanes kept the Cats out in front
of a game that was surprisingly
close in the early going. Parker's
10 first half points were the dif-
ference as BCHS took a 28-21
lead into the locker room.
He scored his remaining points
in a third period that saw the Cats
put the game out of reach as the
Cats outscored the Tigers 21-10.
The Tigers made a furious come-
back attempt in a very fast-paced
fourth period, but they could not
manage to make up ground on
the Cats.
Delano Paige had 12, Chris
Walton 7 and Anthony Baker and
Josh Wiseman 6 points.
SParker and Paige had an-
other big night for BCHS on the
road Jan. 22 in Starke against
Bradford County. But after keep-
ing the game close through three
quarters, the Tornadoes blew it
open with a late 18-4 run.
It was a seesaw contest with
both teams trading baskets and
Parker battling on the inside with
the Bradford center. But in the
end, the Cats couldn't answer
when Bradford put the foot on
the gas as the game clock Nound
Parker and Paige ended with
19 apiece. Wiseman, who hasn't
been scoring at his usual pace,
had 9.
In some games, it doesn't
matter if you win pretty or win
ugly, just so you get the win, and
the Wildcats' 46-29 victory over
Baldwin January 24 was not a
pretty one. Nobody on either
team had the hot hand and as a
result there wasn't a player on
the court for either side in double
figures. The Wildcats jumped
out to an early 9-point lead and
slowly built on it as the night
progressed. But neither side

Ruise's injury
It was a rough week for the
Lady Wildcat basketball team,
which lost'a pair of tough games
and in the process also lost lead-
ing scorer Brittany Ruise to an
ankle injury.
Earlier in the year the Wild-
cats defeated Bradford County
by 32 points on the Tornadoes'
home court. This time the Tor-
nadoes were out for revenge and
they got it, defeating the Lady
Cats 49-39 January 20 in the
BCHS gym.
Bradford jumped out'in front
and stayed in front, despite Ruise
hitting 20 points that night. The
Wildcats started slow and Brad-
ford jumped out to a 10-3 lead.
Things didn't get much better
in the second period. Bradford
continued to pile up the points

The problem was that besides
Ruise, no one else was doing
much scoring for Baker High.
The next leading scorer was Des-

The scoring difficulty was
compounded a bit when Ruise

slack, scoring 23 in a losing ef-

weren't any other 'Wildcats in

Alachua is a tough, physi-.

the Cats outplayed the Raiders,
