MIKE ANDERSONen en PRESS STAFF Faced with declining prop erty tax revenues and modest increases from other income sources, the City of Macclenny is moving toward the 2011-12 budget year with very little ad ditional money to spend than it had this year. The proposed general fund all municipal services, includes $3,940,993 in anticipated rev enues, which is slightly more than 1 percent more than the $3,898,611 in the 2010-11 bud get. That means no frills and no extra services, no new garbage trucks or any other city vehicles, just basic services, City Manager Gerald Dopson said. Because of the tough economic times, he said, the city is having to stick to a strict budget just like families throughout Baker County. Its lean. We dont have any money in here for new equip ment, Mr. Dopson said August 22. Were trying, purposely, to get by with the basics. Dur ing this time thats what its all about. City commissioners reviewed time on August 16 and all agreed with the city managers recom mendation to keep the same property tax, or millage, rate at 3.60 mills, even though it would drop revenue from $768,065 to $744,618 because of lower property values. One mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable property val ue. The tax bill on a home with a taxable value of $150,000, after deducting the $50,000 in homestead exemptions, would be $360, in addition to levies by the county, the school district and other taxing authorities. During the budget work shop last week commissioners thanked the city manager and department heads for submit ting such a tight budget. Most departments came in about the same (as last year) or a little less, Mayor Gary Dop son said. One or two came in a little higher.JOEL ADDINGTONen en NEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comDespite huge advances in health, nutrition and medicine during the last two decades, men in Baker County are dying sooner than they did in 1987. That revelation surfaced re cently when the University of Washington published a report in June on life expectancy of males and females nationwide. It showed that men in Bak er County lived to an average age of 68.6 years in 1987. But by 2007, the average dropped slightly to 68.1 years, shav ing six months off the average males life span. Baker County and Union County were two of the six loca tions in the United States where life expectancy among men de clined during that period. La Paz County in Arizona led the pack with a 1.1-year drop in av erage life expectancy. James Ruise of Margaretta intends to buck that trend, however. Im trying to live, he said during a break in his workout at the YMCA gym the afternoon of August 23. The 46-year-old retired corrections officer and Baker County native said he stays healthy by playing basketball, lifting weights at the Y and eat ing right. I got an 11-year-old son so I got to keep up with him, said Mr. Ruise. An expert at the University of Washington, Ali Mokdad with the schools Institute of for Health Metrics and Evaluation, pointed to three preventable causes of the backslide high rates of obesity, smoking and high blood pressure. When it comes to overweight or obese men, Baker County topped its neighbors with 76.3 percent of adult males fall ing into the category last year. Union and Baker County also had the highest percentage of strictly obese men in the region at 43.5 and 40.1 percent, re spectively. Nearly 12 percent of guys here were diagnosed with dia betes in 2010 and 11.3 percent with a heart attack or heart dis ease that year, the second larg est percentages in Northeast Florida behind Union County.

The latter wreck involved in a van carry in Jacksonville returning home to Lake City about 4:20 pm. Their Ford was westbound near mile marker 325 east of the US 90 interchange when its driver lost control for an unknown reason, said Lt. Kevin Blom of the Florida Highway Patrol. The van crossed into the median and rolled over, coming to rest on its side at the edge of the eastbound lane, he said. Four passengers were ejected, one of whom was airlifted to Shands Jacksonville. Others were taken to Fraser Hospital and Benny Markham suffered a head injury and lacerations to his elbows, but otherwise appeared unharmed. He refused transport to the hospital. I dont know what happened, said Mr. get off at the Sanderson exit. I was in the seat behind the drivers seat and I realize (the driver) was going off the road and I thought, man, he must be fallin asleep or something. I reached across and tried to grab the steering wheel to try to get us back in the road. I tried but I couldnt do it and I fell See page 2


Page 2 T B C P ursday, August 25, 2011back in my seat. We went this way and that and next thing I knew it was all this (pointing to the overturned van). Three days prior, Maria Dawn Chancelor, 34, of Nederland, Texas lost control of her 2009 Pontiac sedan on the on ramp at SR 121 to I-10 eastbound about 12:30 am. The vehicle traveled onto the on ramps northern shoulder toward the interstate, crossed the eastbound lanes and the median into the westbound lanes before striking the rear axle of a 2007 Kenworth semi-truck heading west, according to Trooper D.L. Myers report of the crash. Ms. Chancelor, who was not wearing a seat belt, was killed. The semis driver, Eli M. Joseph, 49, of Orlando, was not injured and Ms. Chancelors passenger, Michael Shawn Currier, 35, of Fayetteville, Tenn. survived with critical injuries. Mr. Currier, who was also not restrained, was transported to Shands in Jacksonville. The largest bite out of the general fund goes to the Baker Counlaw enforcement services in the city. Next year, however, the bite will be a little smaller. The amount for law enforcement in the city managers budget proposal was $731,953, down from $740,314 last year. But Sheriff Joey Dobson told commissioners during the budget workshop that he could cut it even lower to $721,310 due to the County Commissions recent vote not to give employees, including deputies, a 3 percent pay raise as had been recommended by the county manager. I dont think Ive ever come to you and given money back, the sheriff told city commissioners. Im usually asking for more. Mayor Dobson said that since the sheriff gave us $10,000 back he recommended increasing the citys annual contribution to the Council on Aging to make it an even $50,000 next year. The board unanimously approved the mayors suggestion. The citys proposed budget also includes $696,431 for the $682,914; $609,696 for solid waste, an increase of $17,465; $571,401 for streets, compared with $561,878 last year; and $98,080 for recreation, up from $95,275. Property taxes arent the only source of city income thats declining. About a dozen other revenue sources are expected to pour less money into city coffers next year, including occupational license fees, gasoline taxes, and land use and development fees. Total income, however, is expected to grow from $6,664,300 to $7,300,653, helped by a $700,000 Community Development Block Grant that the city only recently learned had been approved by the state. The $700,000 had not been included cials werent counting on it until city hall received word earlier this month that the money was available if the city wanted it. We said, Yeah, well take it, the city manager said. We were not even aware that we were going to get it. Revenues from the citys water and sewer operations, which will help balance the general fund budget with a supplemental appropriation of $198,000, are expected to increase about $106,000 from $2,318,196 to $2,424,118. Although the new spending plan includes a 3 percent pay raise for most city employees, nobody will actually see a net increase in their paychecks. The raise was intended to offset a new state requirement that public employees must contribute 3 percent to their own retirement. However, the rule only applies to employees in the Florida Reers are members of a different retirement plan administered by the Florida League of Cities, they wont get a raise. The ones who are going to get the 3 percent are the ones who had to come up with 3 percent toward their retirement, the city manager said. He said that his budget proposal also does not include a pay raise for himself or Fire Chief Buddy Dugger, to which Mayor Dobson simply said: We appreciate that. proposed tax rate and budget will begin at 6:00 pm on September 12. Final adoption is scheduled for 6:00 pm on September 26. The new budget year begins October 1.

Thats absolutely fine by me because there are weeks when I stare at a white sheet of paper and wait for divine guidance as to what to put on it. This week I didnt have to because Cathy Hooper stopped me and said, You know what you need to write about? What? Stuff that we used to be told to do that now is completely bad for us. Hmm. Like doctors who smoked as they examined us. Better yet, doctors who recommended a particular brand of cigarette in advertisements. In the 1950s there were ads touting More doctors smoke Camels than any other brand of cigarette. Even Santa was hawking butts. Santa claimed he smoked Pall Malls because it guards against a scratchy throat. Lots of things that were supposed to be good for you we later learned could kill us. The roof of my junior high school cafeteria was sprayed with asbestos and the stuff would flake off and fall like a dust into our food. Can you say, class action lawsuit? My Uncle Dick decided I needed to learn how to swim when I was 6 or 7 and chucked me like a rock off the dock into the bay up in Canada. Luckily my big sister was already in the water because I went down like a stone. He hadnt thought anything about it. Thats how people learned to swim back then. People who gardened regularly dusted their flowers and plants with DDT. Its a wonder that we didnt all wind up with hands growing out of our foreheads. Car seats? Who needs a car seat? Back in the bad old days we used to hold those toddlers on our laps as we drove. Of course we didnt realize they would be crushed like a bug against the steering wheel if we got in an accident. Speaking of cars seat belt? Who needs a seat belt? Back in 1966 when the Highway Safety Act went into effect and seat belts were required both the general public and car manufacturers loudly claimed that they were more dangerous than safe. That goes hand in hand with air bags, which got the same rap when they were made standard equipment in 1990. MercedesBenz made them standard equipment in 1980. I used to love to ride hound dog. When I was a kid we drove all the way from Fort Lauderdale to Lake City with my sister in the back of the pickup. Nowadays we wouldnt have gotten out of the county without a $200 ticket. Salt is bad for you, though my parents salted everything when I was growing up. Tylenol messes up your liver and ibuprofen is bad for your blood. Only aspirin is a good pain killer that is if it doesnt give you a bleeding ulcer. Of course, way back when, cocaine was an ingredient in foods. Where do you think Coca-Cola got its name? Even heroin was touted as a pain killer. The Bayer company sold it around the turn of the century and opium was used in childrens paregoric. If there werent bacon and eggs at breakfast it wasnt breakfast. That was before we even knew we there was such a thing as cholesterol. At picnics it was standard operating procedure to set out the food and leave it in the hot sun. Wed eat at noon, play all afternoon and then eat again at dinner time. No one thought anything about food poisoning. During the summer everyone swam in the river. Now if you go to swim in the river you have to worry about parasites crawling through your eyeballs and into your brains. It goes to show you that ignorance is bliss. JESSICA PREVATT | STAFF I recently received a letter in the mail regarding a new program behow smart my child is and how proud I was of his accomplishments. I thought this a great opportunity for him to accelerate his learning in school and challenge him more. The program is a virtual school class replacing either grade level reading or math with an advanced middle school level reading or math. A ton of questions came to mind: What if he starts it and struggles? Can I as a parent allow him to quit the virtual program later and return to his grade level studies and does this set a precedent that he can quit when something gets tough? What if he gets bad grades or does poorly on the FCAT? What happens when he gets to BCMS and has already taken his sixth and seventh grade math online? In my search for answers I attended a meeting held at Keller Thursday evening. I was very surprised at the small attendance in proportion to the number of letters mailed. I can only assume many parents either werent interested in enrolling their kids, spoke with teachers at open house or did their own research online. What most annoyed me was how hard it is to get answers to my many questions. I dont know, was a common theme throughout the meeting. Maybe someone from the Florida Department of Education should have come to explain what is going on, or someone from a district who has used virtual classes with kids this age before, whether in Florida or another state. I get the distinct impression the school district is not a supporter of legislation mandating virtual classes. That is understandable. It was forced on the school district, which appears to be scrambling to get the necessary set-ups in place by the deadline. The law was passed in May but our districts teaching and learning director didnt know about it until July 25. Sounds like a lack of communication between DOE and the school district. That lack of communication has translated into a lot of scrambling for the schools, and now parents, who are trying to make an informed decision. back to the dreaded FCAT. Funding, jobs and so much more are balanced on the scores from the FCAT and if these children arent learning with their grade level classes they are missing a years worth of FCAT prep for their grade level and the next. As Keller Intermediate has already received a D based on last years FCAT scores, the school can ill afford a program that could cause children who scored well last year to not do as well this year. I believe this is a chance they arent willing to take. Fear of the unknown is a powerful force. Over 400 letters were sent out to parents about the meetings, and only 14 people said they were interested. If you dont try it, you dont know if you just passed up a great opportunity for your child. It may require a lot more work from parents to ensure their kids review for the FCAT at home in the evenings, but hey, its our kids and theyre worth it! Jessica Prevatt is a married mother of two boys and the advertising/production director at The Baker County Press. rfn ROBERT GERARD tbMy, my some of us are a bit testy. No public official likes it when the media infers that they draw too heavily from the public purse, or in a more recent scenario, that its belt tightening time and they havent tightened enough. Such was the message two weeks ago in this space when yours truly opined that Baker Countys constitutional officers who then as a group managed to cut a paltry one percent from proposed budgets at the behest of the cash-strapped county commission needed to cut more. Tax Collector Gene Harveys response? He shows up at the August 15 commission meeting whining that The Press overcharged his office for the annual advertisement of delinquent property taxes, while the newspaper complained about the level of spending in his and other offices. Mr. Harvey also threw in a stock comment that newspapers emphasize the negative because it helps circulation. He caught us! Weve long tried to hide the true reason we publish each week grubbing for more money. Thats pretty much the routine response from public officials when they get tweaked, so lets urge Mr. Harvey to perhaps come up with something more original next time. No, wait! He did come up with something else. But it was disingenuous, and Mr. Harvey knows it. He stated that the tax sale bill was a big part of my budget and chided the newspaper for increasing the per parcel rate it charges per delinquent taxpayer for the three-week run each spring. Hes correct, the newspaper is charging more each year, particularly since the demise of the countys other newspaper (when bids were sought). But he left out something. His office does not pay for the advertising. Delinquent taxpayers pay it; all he does is collect it and pass it on to us. Just between us (dont let Collector Harvey in on this), the rate delinquent taxpayers paid in 2011 per parcel for the entire run is far less than our regular legal advertisement rate. Its even less than the lowest commercial rate to our best customers, the ones who advertise every week and, along with our readers, keep us in business. Not to mention that the rate is below in some cases far below what most newspapers of comparable circulation throughout Florida charge. Mr. Harvey also boasted he hasnt increased his budget ($627,581 for the current year, $608,280 proposed for next) in five years. His budget five years ago was $604,785. He expects to return to the county $130,000 in excess fee collections this year. Thats great, but not quite the feat he believes it is. Its not like hes making a profit in the traditional sense and its a great deal for the taxpayers. Its merely the excess of fees he collects from selling licenses, tags, etc. at the price that state and local agencies set. Its understandable that public officials, particularly constitutional offices, are a bit sensitive to public comments made about them except comments that place them in a good light. A bad light might entice someone to challenge at election time. Its a great gig being the tax collector or any of the officers. Okay, you have to stand for election every four years, but most run unopposed and unless they get caught in some egregious or scandalous misbehavior, they stay in office until that glorious day when they retire on a very generous pension the taxpayers financed. In some cases they get the full pension before they retire. But lets not get into that. And dont forget, the pension is based on the highest five years of service at salaries that are roughly three-four times what the average Baker County citizen pulls down. You know, schlub jobs most people have where they actually have to show up every day and stay a full eight hours. My message is unchanged from two weeks ago. Constitutional officers, along with the commission, are far short of sufficient budget cuts for 2011-2012. Theyve got to do what we in private business have been doing since 2007 trim expenses to match revenues. All budgets overseen by the commission are still roughly $2.3 million short and the board appears content for now to dip into the existing $8 million surplus sitting out there for a rainy day. Failure to match revenues to expenses isnt a rainy day. Theyre kicking the can down the road, and if they think the economy is going to improve sufficiently by the fall of 2012 to make anything different a year from now, theyre in another universe.Jim McGauley




ursday, August 25, 2011 T B C P Page 5 JOEL ADDINGTONNEWS EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comStand-up comedy will soon have a permanent home in Macclenny. Anita Baker, who helped to showcase a string of comedy shows last year at Calendars Pizzeria and Deli downtown, plans to open Giggles Comedy Cafe not far away as soon as October 1. Proposed at the 1100-squarefoot vacant space owned by General Real Estate Services of Jacksonville at 1484-C S. 6th St. are performances from regional and national comedians on Saturday evenings, complete with wine and beer, which prompted a special exception application to the Macclenny Zoning Adjustment Board recently. City codes prohibit the sale of alcohol by non-restuarants in commercial general zoning districts without an approved special exception. The board was set to consider Ms. Bakers application at its August 15 meeting, but tabled the matter due to her absence. Ms. Baker, a Macclenny native and Jacksonville resident, said she began bringing comedians to Calendars last summer and continued doing so through the fall before parting ways with the restaurant and bar. She moonlights hosting and organizing live entertainment for parties, weddings and other events as No Joke Promotions. I mainly do corporate events, but I do [comedy] in Macclenny because theres nothing there ... I love Macclenny and I love hosting and entertaining people, she said. The civil engineer intends to feature local acts on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month, but local to me is anywhere from Atlanta to Orlando to Tallahassee, said Ms. Baker. will be reserved for what she called heavy hitters like Paul Mooney and others who have appeared on BET and Comedy Central. The business will be restricted to customers 21 years or older. Ms. Baker said shes obtained a liquor license from the state, but still needed the citys blessing. Ms. Baker appeared for the board when it reconvened the evening of August 23. She was granted the special exception 3-0 after assuring board members the consumption of alcohol would be closely monitored by herself. I will be personally serving, Ms. Baker said. The three members of the four-member Zoning Adjustment Board, Mark Bryant was absent, considered a trio of other requests last week during the August 15 meeting. The panel relaxed setbacks requirements for two home improvement projects in the north city and permitted a decorative fence two feet taller than city codes normally allow in the south city. at 331 S. 6th St. will soon be enclosed on three sides with a 6 foot decorative, wrought iron fence with seven-foot brick columns. City codes limit fence heights to four feet. 835 Miltondale Rd. was granted a three-foot reduction to the required rear setback of 10 feet. The couple intends to connect an existing rear building some 10 feet from the residence to the homes garage. proved for Verna Crews home at 134 North Blvd. Ms. Crews nephew, Jimmy Bennett, said hes planning a 952-square-foot mother-inlaw suite to house his 95-yearold grandmother near the 624-square-foot residence. Mr. Bennett proposes to connect the structures with a 10-footlong breezeway so his aunt to easily supervise his grandmother. Her mobility is extremely challenged these days, he said, adding she hasnt lived alone for 10 years. She cant hardly walk.

Page 6 T B C P ursday, August 25, 2011journalism, he said. So how did this country boy from a rural community in north Florida parlay his small town weekly newspaper gig into a job at GMA? Id been working at the ad vertising sales thing about three months and I went in one day to pick up my paycheck and there was no paycheck, he said, laughing. Thats when I realized I was no salesman. So I went to the editor and asked what do I do now? She put him to work writing for the paper. My journalism career was literally jump-started by a mon key, he said. In addition to working for the newspaper I also worked at the Elianos Coffee stand owned by my family. One day, a woman who was waiting for her order struck up a conver sation and mentioned that her husband had seen a big orange monkey in the woods behind their house. Well, that was so goofy, I jumped on it! He secured an interview with the husband and when the story was posted on the papers web site, it got picked up by numer ous news sources nationwide. That was unbelievable to me, he said. I could hardly fathom that something I had written was getting posted to all these other news websites. Channel 12 in Jacksonville also picked up the story and called him to get more informa tion. Thats when I started to net work with the staff at First Coast News (Channel 12) and it wasnt long before I became a freelancer for them, covering events that happened in Baker County, he said. When an assignment editor position on the news desk at Channel 12 opened up, he went for it. Working the news desk at a television station is a bit like assignment editor uses press re leases, national news reports, breaking news events, in-coming phone calls and other sources to determine what stories report ers and videographers should cover each day. The AE may also assist in writing, reporting, researching and fact checking as well. The news desk can be stress ful and crazy, especially during breaking news, but I found I ac tually thrived on the energy and the challenge, he said. The boy who couldnt sell ad vertising found his niche as an assignments editor. His co-workers at Channel 12 started calling him hound dog because of his tendency to pur sue a lead until he found the in formation needed. I was the guy that would spread a hundred newspaper ar ticles and courthouse documents erything, taking it all in until I found something we needed or could use. He did this for two years. Then Somer Thompson was abducted and murdered in Jack sonville, an event that became another turning point in his ca reer. producing when I met Katie Bos lin whod been sent down by Good Morning America to cover might want to play that card too so I asked for her supervisors email. Im young and new to the business, he wrote. What can I be doing to get myself ready for a job like Ms. Boslins? Six months passed without a reply. One evening at Channel 12, his phone rang. It was Good Morn ing America. The show was conducting interviews for some positions to New York? I told my dad I probably wouldnt get a job, but it was a great opportunity to meet peo ple and make some valuable contacts. Fortunately for me, he agreed, said Mr. Crews. Mr. Crews borrowed the plane fare from his father, begged friends who lived in Manhattan for a place to stay and made his way to New York. And thats how the boy from Baker County found himself sit ting across from Santina Leuci, Good Morning Americas senior editorial producer. Ill be honest with you, there is an internal candidate, she told him. But you know Florida. Maybe we can use you for free lance, as a booker. And thats how it got started, he said. I returned to Channel 12, but in my free time I started working as a booker for GMA, covering Florida. pen, a booker negotiates and secures an exclusive interview for the network. Once again, a monkey played a part in the next stage of his jour terviews he booked for GMA was with Andrea Maturan, the Tam pa woman who was attacked by a chimpanzee while working at Suncoast Primate Sanctuary. Probably the most interesting interview he secured before go ing to work full time for the show was with Zurah Adbu Ahmed, the mother of Adnan Shukrijumah who once attended school in Bro ward County and later became a top commander in Paskistan for Al Qaeda. Mr. Crews traveled to the Mi ramar area where she lived. It got her to talk to him and then agree to be interviewed. I was driving her to the inter view location when she turns to me and says, Do I have a makeup artist? said Mr. Crews. He was a little surprised, but played along. I said, No maam. Do you want a make-up artist? She said yes, then asked me if I had any make up and I said no. Well, I have to have make-up she told me, he said. And so Mr. Crews drove Mrs. Ahmed to the nearest Walgreens to shop for cosmetics. It was so surreal, he remem bers. Here I am in Walgreens with this little Muslim lady who is the mother of a key Al Qaeda commander and Im trying to ex plain the difference between lip stick and lip gloss. Since going to work for Good Morning America full time in 2010, travel at a moments notice is a main component of his job. Its not unusual for him to be in three different cities in as many days. We certainly get time off, but were always on call because news happens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I realized this most profoundly when I was at home back in January for a few days and preparing to take my young niece on a shopping spree, Mr. Crews explained. Thats when he got the phone call telling him U. S. Representa tive Gabrielle Giffords had been shot through the head during a public gathering in Arizona and many other people wounded. You need to be on the plane to Tucson ASAP, his boss told him. You should pack for two weeks. aged to get an interview booked with Zack Osler, the childhood friend of gunman Jarod Lough ner. Until then, no one knew much about Jarod Loughner. That I booked the exclusive with his friend was a major thing for the network. Im proud I had a part in that, he said. Now based in Atlanta, Mr. Crews is looking forward to the day when he will be living in New York. His advice to aspiring journal ists who might want to work for a television network is this: First, you must be a people and aggressive and you need to be a problem solver. When cir cumstances throw up a road tion. I dont stop until I do.

ursday, August 25, 2011 T B C P Page 9 MIKE ANDERSONPRESS STAFF The Baker County Commissions fourth and final budget workshop ended around supper time on August 23, leaving a proposed spending plan for 2011-12 still hungry for nearly $2.2 million to balance the books. Fortunately, the county has a reserve fund of about $8.5 million from which it can draw tween anticipated expenditures and projected revenues for next cant continue to draw down the You can only go to the well so many times, said County Manager C.J. Thompson, using a clich that has been cited numerous times by commissioners lately to emphasize their concern about dwindling reserves. Mr. Thompson told commissioners that to balance the proposed $27,405,489 budget for next year he will have to transfer $2,192,680 from reserves, which he said would leave $6.3 million in a savings account that has been eroded by similar budget transfers in the past few years. Last year, $1,752,189 was transferred from reserves to balance the countys budget, Mr. Thompson said. Furthermore, he said, it looks doubtful that the county will have any money left over next year to transfer to reserves, which has been the practice in previous years. Were forecast to spend just about every dollar of it, he said, adding that $6.3 million is getting awfully close to the $5 million reserve mark that auditors say the county needs to maintain, at a minimum, in case of emergencies. If a hurricane slams into the coast near Jacksonville the storm could be devastating to inland counties, including Baker, and cause the county to dip heavily into its reserve fund, Mr. Thompson said. When the budget process began in July commissioners were faced with a $3.4 million procounty manager and constituered in a public hearing on September 8. Also since budget talks began commissioners have voted down the county managers recommendation to reward employees with a 3 percent raise, which would offset a new requirement from the state that employees contribute 3 percent of their salaries to their own retirement. During a budget workshop last week the county manager asked commissioners to reconsider the issue of pay raises, perhaps a sliding scale salary adjustment for those in different pay brackets or giving raises to some but not others. But since then, Mr. Thompson told commissioners this week, he has received quite a bit of feedback from employees and the predominant feedback is that if we cant do it for all dont do it. Commissioners didnt change their position from two weeks ago when they said the county cannot afford pay raises this year. Were in a mess, Commission Chairman Michael Crews said at the conclusion of this weeks meeting. Asked if he thought the issue of raises might be readdressed next month, the county manager left no doubt that he thinks its dead this year. The budget is done, Mr. Thompson said. The board met for an hour and a half to discuss the budget, adjourning about 5:30 pm after a lengthy discussion about whether the county should hire a new human resources administrator to handle personnel matters in the When Chairman Crews called for a vote on the issue, he and Commissioner Gordon Crews were outvoted 3-2 in a decision to have a human resources director in the courthouse cross-train secretarial staff in the county manof the duties from time to time. Michael Crews said he thinks the two secretaries are already busy enough and shouldnt have to take on additional duties when a new full-time person could do fectively. He said the county is big enough to justify two human resources employees one in the courthouse and one in the county administration building. Its silly to expect one person to perform all those duties, he said, adding that the proposed salary for an additional human resources person would only be about $25,000 a year. Were blowing way more than that in numerous areas, he said. Commissioner Jimmy Anderson, one of those most vehemently opposed to hiring a second person to administer personnel matters, said he was against hiring a new person when the county Times are hard right now, Mr. Anderson said. Were lookThe 2011-12 budget, which goes into effect on October 1, is based on the same property tax, or millage, rate as last year: 7.1495 mills. One mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable property value. The tax bill on a home with an assessed value of $125,000, after deducting the $50,000 homestead exemption, would be about $536 for county government services, excluding levies by the school district, water management district and any other taxing authorities. The public hearing on September 8 will give taxpayers an opportunity to voice opinions about the proposed tax rate and budget. Final budget approval is set for a public hearing on September 15.

ursday, August 25, 2011 T B C P Page 11The Wildcats will start their 2011 football season on the road Thursday evening when they head east on US 90 to face off against the Baldwin Indians at 7:00 pm in the Kickoff Clas sic. Its been a couple of years since the Wildcats have taken on the Indians and there are a few changes. The game was originally set for Friday, but moved up due to the potential impact of Hurri cane Irene. Baldwins coach Steve Shields is working hard to turn around the program. Shields team went 4-8 last season but most of their troubles came on the road. They did a good job defending Indian territory, breaking even in their home games. The Indians improved as the season progressed and finished the season with a 24-12 win over rival Hilliard and impressive 33-0 shutout of Forrest. Shields hopes this success will translate into some momentum going into Fridays game. Both teams are anxious to evaluate talent in this early phase of the season. The Indians have the luxury of returning seven starters on offense and an equal number on defense. The returners include quarterback Mullis Jordan and talented running back Zaybreion Gunter. The backfield is one of the teams strengths with some depth at the running back position. Defensively, the Indians are a bit shallow after the first string. The Wildcats are anxious to get into a game situation so Coach Ryan Sulkowski and his staff can see if the progress they believe theyve made during the summer workouts and fall prac tice translates to success on the field.

One last lunch with your bride of over 57 years; You passed out hugs to the women you met, As you strolled down the street, with a smile you can bet. Then God placed His Hand on the Door-keepers arm, And ever so gently said It is done. We gathered together to tell you good-bye, Hymns were sang, praises offered through the tears we cried. Your spirit we felt, as the angels arrived, To take you to Heaven, Alekzandr saw two at your side. The food poured in, to nourish and feed, There was one special angel assigned to our need. No wings can be seen, but she has the gift of love, Diana Chance is a blessing sent from God above. To honor the man you were, and lives you touched, Scores stood in the rain, Daddy, they loved you that much.

Mama picked out your headstone with love in her heart, Inscribed with the message, always left when you were apart. E & E meant more than we ever knew; It was a special bond, just between you two.

Written by Teresa Foster From, Your Family PHOTO COURTESY OF MARIA WHEATONHelp bundle some love for NICUsMaria Wheaton of Macclenny donates supplies to the Wolfson Childrens Hospital NICU, or neonatal intensive care unit, with her 2-year-old daughter Kaylee on June 19. Ms. Wheaton lost Kaylees twin sister during birth and Kaylee battled for her life in the NICU for seven months in late 2009 and early 2010. Now, as a member of the Northeast Florida March of Dimes Family Team Advisory Council, shes committed to helping the March of Dimes in any way possible, including collecting essential items for moms and babies who may stay in the NICU for days or months. I can honestly say I wish this project was underway at that time, Ms. Wheaton said of the period she spent in the NICU. The March of Dimes Bundles of Love project delivers items like baby blankets and hand sanitizer on Fathers Day and Christmas to area NICUs. Other needed items include knitted blankets and booties (gender neutral), travel size lotion, Tylenol, Kleenex, water bottles, chap stick, nonperishable snacks, disposable cameras, small stued animals and childrens books.

Thankfully, the Wildcats will start their season with the Kick off Classic this Friday in Baldwin. That should help a little bit. But I wont be truly happy un til the college season starts in a couple of weeks. Though things get underway with a few scat tered games on Thursday, Sept. 1 the season kicks off in earnest that Saturday. Mark your calendar for Sept. 17, when the Gators face off against Tennessee, FSU takes on #1 Oklahoma and Miami is up against Ohio State. The state of Florida is the place to be. For UF it will be bragging rights. For #5 FSU it will be about staying in the top ten or mov ing up in the rankings. The way things have been going in the offseason for Miami and OSU, that game could be for parole. The pre-season rankings make for some interesting reading. Oklahoma is #1, of course, and that is probably a good choice. Alabama, Oregon and LSU are 2, 3, and 4 respectively with Boise State and FSU in at #5 depending on the poll. The Gators, starting a new era under Will Muschamp, are #22 or #23. It is the first time since 2004 that the Seminoles have been ranked higher than the Ga tors. Georgia is ranked #19 or #22 depending on the poll. There are six or seven SEC teams in the top 20. Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Arkansas, Missis sippi State and South Carolina are all ranked in one poll and de fending champ Auburn joins the list in another. The Tigers have fallen almost out of the rankings with star Cam Newton moving to the Carolina Panthers. win in the pre-season, but didnt exactly look like world beaters in the process. They beat Atlanta 15-13 but neither David Garrard or Blaine Gabbert looked partic ularly good. With the Jaguars not risking Maurice Jones-Drew or Mar cedes Lewis, its been Deji Karim whos looked good to me. Though hes listed as the number three back behind MJD and Rashad Jennings, hes had some good runs in both pre-season games. The defense looked a little bet ter against the Falcons. They got some pressure on Matt Ryan and looked decent in run defense. They are definitely looking bet ter than the #29 ranked defense in the NFL, which is where they graded out last year. With Peyton Manning out through the early part of the sea son with a neck injury, the Jaguars could gain some ground. But dont count out the Houston Texans, who have looked very tough in the pre-season.F LROBERT GERARD rbt

ursday, August 25, 2011 T B C P Page 13 KELLEY LANNIGANFEATURES features@bakercountypress.comParvo is a highly contagious virus, spread through contact with feces, that affects primarily puppies and strikes fear in the heart of any serious canine lover. And for good reason. Intestinal and respiratory symptoms can be severe and in unprotected cases, mortality can reach 91 percent. Baker County resident Tabatha Matthews recently lost her 6-month-old black lab Cocoa to the disease. She boarded the dog for two after returning home Cocoa died. Though they spent time together, Ms. Matthews much older dog Duri, was not affected. Duris age is probably what protected him as Parvo rarely effects dogs over 18 months. According to Ms. Matthews, Cocoa had received the vaccination against parvo, which made the dogs demise even more heartbreaking. They bleed out from both ends right in front of you, she told The Press in a phone interview earlier this week. Ms. Matthews uses a vet in Duval County and said she learned that there may be a parvo outbreak in north Florida. rison, who owns Macclenny Vetlight on the nature and behavior of the virus. outbreak, but that hes treated about 100 cases this season so the incidence of infection to rise and fall throughout the year and that dog owners should always be mindful of it. Cases of parvo seem to increase in the spring and summer when more puppies are born, he said. Unfortunately, even vaccinated puppies are not always completely protected, but vaccination is still the best tool we have in protecting dogs from the disease. success of the vaccine is a combination of timing and how much colostrum the puppy was exposed to after birth. Colostrum is the special milk produced at the late stage of pregnancy and sefew days after the puppies are born. Colostrum contains antibodies and acts as a natural but temporary safeguard until a puppys own immune system can begin to develop. Its a passive immunity; it son. Thats why its important to begin a series of vaccinations against parvo at six weeks of age and several repeat vaccinations should follow at about three week intervals. Sometimes a puppy is exposed to parvo so quickly that it becomes sick before its old enough For this reason, the best measure of protection is to avoid exposure to potential sites of infection, such as kennels, dog parks and the ground outside the house until after the last in the series of vaccinations can be given. Even the sidewalks, steps and the ground outside a veterinarians office can harbor the virus because so many dogs pass through those areas. Bleach is typically used inside and other surfaces, but its still a good idea to use a pet carrier to transport a young puppy to and from the vet and avoid contact In short, parvo is something that dog owners should always be conscientious about. That and the fact that even their owners can be passive carriers of the infection, exposing their dogs unintentionally. first case of parvo he encountered in Baker County in the early days of his practice. It was in Possum Trot and this gentleman had four large bulldogs in a pen who were not getting out and being exposed to other dogs, but parvo infected them just the same, he said. airport and we determined that he must have brought the virus home to them, probably on his boots, from his work parking lot.

The Cats are quicker, faster, stronger and vastly more experienced than in Coach Ryan Sulkowskis first season as head coach. They have really advanced this summer, said Sulkowski. The kids have really worked harder as a collective unit. Sulkowski has seen a lot of improvement in strength, speed and conditioning over the course of the summer. He is particularly encouraged by the effect of working in the new sand pit. It has really helped endurance. We havent seen the dead legs that we saw in the past. The 95 players still practicing are also learning the system at a quicker rate because they have some experience from last year. We have the whole system in place, said Coach Scott McDonald. Id say right now were where we were at in the third game of the season. Sulkowski agrees. We have some players who are very talented skill-wise and who understand the game, he said. Though the Cats still have some holes to fill and players continue to battle for starting positions, the team settled into the spread offense nicely. Where last year much of the practice sessions were spent learning the new system, this year the players and coaches are able to spend more time perfecting it. Heat has not been quite the problem for BCHS that it has been at some other schools. Coaches have been keen about keeping the players hydrated and giving them frequent breaks. They have been working with the heat all summer and are acclimatized to it. McDonald says that could be a benefit in the early part of the season. If you arent used to it you run out of gas in the third quarter, said McDonald. But we should still be strong all through the game. Strength has never been a real issue with the Wildcats, state champions in weight lifting for four years running. This season the Wildcats have a new district with Clay, Paxon, Terry Parker, Forrest and Bishop Kenny. With non-district teams like Trinity and Bolles on the schedule, the Cats are challenged every week, a fact that inspires Sulkowski. We have to line up and play every week, said Sulkowski. Its not up and down like last year where wed play St. Pauls and then have to turn around and get up for Raines. This year the district play is book-ended with Clay at the start of the season and Bishop Kenny at the end. Both teams are tough. Clay is a big team with potential Division 1 players. Last season the Blue Devils were 10-3 and beat Palatka 34-10 in the first round of the playoffs before losing to St. Augustine. But they lost some key players to graduation and have holes to fill. McDonald said that the Kenny Crusaders could also be a challenge. Kenny is always like a machine, said McDonald. They are well coached and they play their position. But this year theyve got some athletes. The Cats go into the Kickoff Classic August 25 with Baldwin looking to solidify the starting lineup and get some momentum going into their travel game to Carrollton, Georgia to meet the Westminster Wildcats on September 3. Offensively, BCHS has a lot of firepower. Thomas Sirk runs the offense with Falon Lee running the ball much of the time. Jeremy Wannamaker continues to be the most versatile player. Last season he ran the offense, ran the ball and knocked down 40-yard field goals. Kendrick Singleton is probably the most dangerous wide receiver and is another very versatile player, although Roland Gaskins, Malon Hadley, Brandon Miller and Richard Keinith have also looked good. Defensively its all about swarming to the ball. The Cats can give opposing offenses fits with their speed and strength. Though they arent huge, they have some size and undoubtedly can push some people around. The defensive line is young but the linebacker core has a lot of experience. Jared Lee, Rickie Tharpe, Hunter Sullivan, Rashodd Hadley and Jeremy Wannamaker have impressed Sulkowski in the lead-up to the season. Transfer Kyle Alexander has also looked good at safety. Young players Brandon Gray, Blake Mills and CC Jefferson have also caught the eye of the coaches. Sulkowski hopes Hurricane Irene will take a pass and allow the Cats to get in the Kickoff Classic. We need to get tested before we get on the bus for Carrolton, Georgia, he said. Come experience the fun and excitement of Baton Twirling!
