904.259.2400 bcpress@nefcom.netCOVERING BAKER COUNTY SINCE 1929The countys most professional and extensive source for news, classied, display and real estate listings MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF When Baker County commissioners meet Thursday afternoon for a final budget workshop they will have two hours to make some tough de cisions about how to arrive at a balanced budget for fiscal year 2014-15 before heading into the first public hearing on the new budget and taxes at 6 p.m. Among the key questions are: Will property taxes have to be raised and, if so, by how much? The current budget proposal reflects a $1.1 million deficit and calls for a 14 percent tax in crease, though commissioners now are lean ing toward half that or smaller. Will county employees receive their first pay raise in several years or ride out another year on the same salary? The budget as proposed reflects a 3 per cent raise across the board, but a one-time bonus of $500 or $1,000 may be offered, instead, or nothing at all. Can the county commission and all five constitutional offices sheriff, tax collector, property appraiser, clerk of court and supervisor of elections take a 5-10 percent budget cut? How much may have to be taken out of a $6 million cash surplus to help balance the budget? These are all questions county officials have been grappling with the past two months. Commissioners will try to answer them Thursday evening in preparation for a final hearing on a new spending plan on September 16. During a budget workshop on August 28, County Manager C.J. Thompson complied with a request from the commission and presented a budget containing a 10 percent cut in current expenditures those for the 2013-14 fiscal year for the county government and the five constitutional offices. But he did not endorse such deep cuts. I think, as a whole, weve done a good job, Mr. Thompson told commissioners. I will re-caveat what I said last week. I am in no way, shape or form recommending (any further) cuts. Weve done our due diligence. Bottom line, he said, is that a 10 percent reduction in expenditures will be doable but it may be painful. Following a lengthy pause, during which commissioners gazed at computers in front of them containing budget data, Chairman Jimmy Anderson solicited input from the audience. bakercountypress.comVisit our website and vote each week in our online poll.How should the county balance its budget?48% Cut employees15% Raise taxes13% Cash reserves PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Tax Collector Gene Harvey PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Sheri Joey Dobson PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Clerk of Courts Al Fraser PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Property Appraiser Tim SweatUnruly driver subdued by Taser shotsSee page 6 Cats win season opener See page 15 Drums donated to students by BCFIA See page 10Two Sanderson residents six shots at a pedestrian on CR 127 during the early morning hours of September 1.

The Macclenny resident has 16 brothers and sisters. Shes adopted seven children of her own and spent 28 years as a school bus driver and before retiring this summer. I retired now because I want to see what its like not to get up at five in the morning, she said with a chuckle. Her career with children began shortly after she graduated from the all-black high school thats now Keller Intermediate School. She worked as a teachers aide in Macclenny for four years before marrying her husband, an Olustee native, in 1972. They then moved to Orlando, but they didnt stay there long. In 1984 the couple re turned to Baker County by way of Jacksonville, where Ms. Tolliver also drove a bus. They were saying they needed some black bus drivers at that time and I knew I could drive so I applied for the job, recalled Ms. Tolliver at her dining room table on August 15 as her grandchildren played in front of the television nearby. She said in those days the white bus drivers had trouble corralling black children, so the obvious solution was to hire black drivers. And when problems arose with black students from her native community of Sanderson, guess who was called in to help? The administrator didnt have to come. I went to the bus. I would tell them, Not today. You cant do it this way ... They were my nieces, nephews, cousins from Sander son. It was easier for me because I knew everybody. The reverse was true as well. When Ms. Tolliver first joined the school district, she was transporting all-white students, which had its own challenges. They would try me to see how strong I was, said Ms. Tolliver. And they did and I challenged them right back and I won. Once I challenged the bully I was good. He was my best friend. I had no problems from there on out. He loved me, because I just love children. I just love people period. Over the years, Ms. Tolliver has delivered children from all over the county to school. She counted off her routes: Macclenny II, Shirley Lane, Trail Ridge, near the ballfields in Macclenny, Sanderson and Margaretta. But where she spent the most time was with youths from Olustee, an area she was very familiar with. The route, twice daily, took about two hours. Between 14 and 18 years I worked Olustee, she said. I loved it. I knew the kids. I knew their mommas. So it was much easier since I knew all the families. Ms. Tollivers approach to bus driving and handling rambunctious kids was one of mutual respect, communication and boundaries. You just have to talk to the children and theyll work with you, said the 63-yearold grandmother. She says her bus was like a family where everyone looked out for and took care of one PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTON Angelina Tolliver with her former bus. Child loving bus driver calls it quitsSee page 2 JOEL ADDINGTONMANAGING EDITOR reporter@bakercountypress.comAfter a smooth primary election with six clear winners last week, the candidates are ramping up for November when the general election will decide two offices, and when the county commission and school board will install its newest members, James G. Bennett and Paula T. Barton, respectively. Mr. Bennett defeated firstterm commissioner Adam Giddens by a significant margin of 22 percent, with turnout coming in high for a primary at 44 percent, compared to just 17.5 percent statewide. Going into the election Mr. Giddens and others believed his primary battle would be a See page 4 Weve been doing these cuts for four years. Were down to the bone.Tax Collector Gene Harvey


Page 2 T B C P ursday, September 4, 2014During the next two hours and 45 minutes commissioners listened to suggestions from the audience, including no tax increase, deeper budget cuts, special assessments and user fees, selling county property and seeking a local-option sales tax to increase county revenue. It also became clear that the proposed 10 percent cut did not have the support of constitutional officers, who said such a reduction would not enable them to fulfill their duties and responsibilities. Nor, they said, could they close their offices two days a week to accommodate a sug gestion by Commissioner Gordon Crews that county employees work 12-hour shifts three days a week rather than 40 hours over five days to save money. If you can tell me how we can go to 36 hours a week I will cut a lot, said Sheriff Joey Dobson. We work 24/7. Clerk of Courts Al Fraser echoed the sheriffs response. That aint gonna fly at the courthouse, Mr. Fraser said. I reckon you could do it but youd have people lined up out the door. Commissioner Adam Gid dens said instead of 12-hour work days employee hours could be reduced and still work five days a week. Offices could open later or close earlier, he said. The board eventually abandoned hope of gaining the support of constitutional officers for any significant budget cut, especially after they got the same negative response when a 5 percent reduction was proposed. The constitutional officers said the only cuts that could possibly be made were in payroll, meaning the 3 percent raise could be eliminated. Weve been doing these cuts for four years, Tax Collector Gene Harvey told the commission. Were down to the bone. The county commission controls the purse strings for its own budget and those of the constitutional officers, who also are elected and serve autonomously. But commissioners have stopped short of enacting a budget containing spending cuts that constitutional officers insist they cannot support. I cant say they dont need every penny they budget, said Commissioner Gordon Crews. On August 4 commissioners voted 3-2 to increase the countys tentative millage rate to 8.29, or about $8.29 per $1,000 of taxable property value. The increase, opposed by Mr. Giddens and Commissioner James Croft, would produce $761,399 in revenue, which would still be about $400,000 short of the current deficit. Last week, Commissioner Crews said he could support eliminating the proposed pay raises and balancing the budget with cash reserves and kick the can down the road again. He also said he did not have a problem leaving the tax rate the way it is and give taxpayers a break. I dont want to run it (reserves fund) dry but people dont want a tax increase ei ther, Mr. Crews said. Ed Barber, Macclenny resident and business owner, said he realized the county was struggling financially but that was no reason to raise taxes on a struggling populace. You are between a rock and a hard place and so are we, Mr. Barber said, noting that he has had to reluctantly lay employees off to keep his business afloat. He said he has been told by other business owners that they may have to shut their doors if the county raises taxes. Businesses are hurting, Mr. Barber told the commission. You are not just obligated to county employees. You have an obligation to us, too. At one point, the tax collector said surplus funds were more than adequate to balance the budget and should be tapped. Six million dollars is way too much in reserves, Mr. Har vey said. Hey, lets use it. Critics of that approach say the reserve fund is supposed to be used only for emergencies but it is gradually being depleted to fund operating expenses. The money has been cut nearly in half from the $11 million it once contained about five years ago because the county has used it as a source of funds to balance the budget every year. Property Appraiser Tim Sweat noted that property taxes comprise about 19 percent of total revenue in the county budget and 81 percent comes from other revenue sources, such as state sales and gasoline taxes. He also asked if the county had explored ways to make taxes fairer, such as an additional sales tax that everyone pays, adding: A lot of people get services and dont pay for it and the county has to pick it up. In response, Commission Chairman Jimmy Anderson said the Florida Legislature wont allow the county to even put a sales tax (proposal) on a referendum. He said he and others have tried but state lawmakers said no dice. Mr. Barber urged the county to keep trying. He said he would not be opposed to paying an additional one-cent sales tax in Baker County and thought many other people would go along with it, as well. Push the idea in Tallahassee, he said. Dont assume you cant get it. Near the end of last weeks workshop, which was attended by dozens of residents, business owners and county em ployees, commissioners expressed gratitude for all the ideas and suggestions made to balance the budget and Commissioner Anderson promised to take everything to heart. Commissioner Crews said he was pretty sure one issue in particular led to such a robust meeting. The millage rate prompted a lot of discussion, he said. It got my attention, re marked Ed Barber.

Crunch time: the budget deadlineanother. I would always tell my kids if youre mad with each other let me know so I can separate you so you wont disturb the bus, said Ms. Tolliver. I didnt have problems on my bus. I talked to my children. I look at it like this if I cant sit still for two hours, then the children cant sit still for two hours, or stay quiet for two hours. If I cant, they cant. If you work with the children, theyll work with you. If youre hard with the children, theyll be hard with you. So I found out being like a family would make being a bus driver real easy. Most of her students were sixth graders and high schoolers. She had the younger students sit in the front of the 66-passenger bus so I could get to know them and they could get to know me, she said. The sixth graders took some training, however. Ms. Tolliver said they would come from a fun bus in elementary school and had to learn to be quieter and remain seated during her trips. With sixth graders, it was totally different when they got to my bus, she said. During her nearly three decades on the job, Ms. Tolliver has noticed some changes. Children today, she says, are less disciplined than they used to be and parents are less in volved. Back in those days the parents would help you with the children. You talked with the parents and told them what the kids were doing, and the parents would intervene. The parents wouldnt take the childrens word, they would take the adults word for it. The thing is now the parents are younger. They havent grown up ... Thats the difference babies are having babies and theyre not teaching their babies how to grow up. In the last five years of her career, Ms. Tolliver was driving two disabled children, one in a van and another in a car. She said they were very quiet and their days very regimented, making her job that much easier. It was a simmer-down time after driving 23 or 24 years with 40, 50 or 60 children, said Ms. Tolliver. Being raised with so many biological brothers and sisters, the oldest of whom in now 86, was great training for managing personalities and resolving conflicts among the kids, according to Ms. Tolliver. When she wasnt driving the bus, Ms. Tolliver was working in day care centers or hospitals, but always with children. But she also has another passion food. Thats my main thing. I love to cook. You name it, I do it. The bus drivers love my fried chicken ... You go to the bus garage and ask about Angelinas fried chicken, she said, adding its her favorite dish as well. And while everyone tells her she should turn her cook ing talents into a business, she quickly dismisses the idea. Oh no, thats work. Driving a school bus is not, said Ms. Tolliver, who was named bus driver of the year in 1991. From page 1Child loving driver retires...


Page3SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 This weeks column is a mixed bag, with some odd news stories that make me scratch my head and a couple of pieces of good news about former Wildcat sports stars. I scanned the news this weekend until I basically had to stop. For 25 years I have written a week ly humor column, but try as I might, nothing I can write is conceivably as bizarre as the real news. One of the biggest head lines this week has not been Syria and Iraq. Its not the Ebola crisis in Africa, nor the fact that over a thousand Russian No it had to do with the Presidents choice of suits. The President had the audacity to wear a tan suit to his most recent news conference and within minutes, the social media was alight with criticism of his choice of threads. Facebook, Twitter and the other social sites lambasted him for looking un-presiden tial. Despite the fact that Ron ald Reagan, both Bushes and Bill Clinton regularly wore tan, when President Obama donned the color it was as if world democracy was teeter ing on the edge of the apocalypse. he or any other member of the government wears so long as it causes them to do something. House Speaker John Boehner could come to work it would jump start Congress. President Obama could wear a powder blue leisure suit if it meant the economy would turn around. Its getting more and more ridiculous. Last week Congress threatened to shut the government down if the president acted unilaterally on immigration reform. When I heard that on the radio I literally scratched my head in disbelief. Shut down the government? How would we notice? College football got underway this weekend and all anyone could talk about was that goes into I listened carefully to the cripower conferences would have an almost automatic in and a few other smaller conferences would be considered. Cinderella teams have a proverbial snowballs chance of getting in. Basically, the football rich keep getting richer. But its better than nothing. The Seminoles struggled to a win over Oklahoma State and the Gators struggled to keep their heads above water as the Swamp lived up to its name. So much rain fell I was surprised that real gators Throughout all the games the crawler ESPN ticker was full of the news that Michael Sam, the leagues only openly gay player, had been released by the St. Louis Rams. Amid all the hoopla they missed the fact that one of the best players ever to put on a uniform, Champ Bailey, was also released by the Saints. The pe rennial pro-bowler was let go by the Broncos earlier in the year. I sure wish the Jaguars would pick him up if for no other reason than the Charlton County natives wealth of knowledge at cornerback. A Massachusetts man painted his Maserati sports car to look like a cross between a police car and a Transformer. He was arrested for impersonno problem with the man being arrested. My only issue is what he was arrested for. He should have been arrested for being an idiot who painted a fabulous $100,000 Maserati to look like anything besides a fabulous $100,000 Maserati. On much a much more pleasant note, it was great to see some former Baker County Wildcat football players get for major college and profes sional programs. Darvin Ruise started at weak side linebacker for Missouri in its 38-18 win over South Dakota State on Saturday. Ruise, who played quar terback for the Wildcats, has steadily worked his way up the depth chart to a starting position for the Tigers in his senior season. Duke sophomore quarterback Thomas Sirk played the entire second half for the Blue Devils in their 52-13 rout of Elon on Saturday. Sirk demonstrated his versatility, throwing the ball well and scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns. Bear Woods continues to play well at linebacker for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. He had a sack this weekend against the Ottawa Roughriders. Next month begins open enrollment for health insurance, so its the election-year bickering over whether its helped or hurt us. For yours truly, I have much better coverage namely cheaper co-pays for a slightly higher monthly premium. But with all the options I had available with Obamacare, I couldve gotten a cheaper plan for generally the same coverage Id had for years. But, of course, the whole point of Obamacare was to get more people covered and bring down ever-rising health care costs. And after one year, both goals have been reached to some degree, despite no cooperation from some of the states, including Florida, that Obamacare actually emcomplish those two goals. Then theres the dysfunctional Congress, and the House in particular, which wasted its time and energy repeatedly repealing Obamacare with no hope that the move would ever become a reality. It was political theatre, which is to say a load of bull manure, much like a recent Republican Party of Florida statement that Obamacare is responsible for higher health insurance premiums expected this year. It did come during an online forum in which Charlie Crist was answering questions, and was quickly debunked by the fact-checking team at But really? Are we really going to ignore the fact that premiums have been going up every year for de cades? Were we really to expect after only one year of Obamacare, this trend would completely reverse? Please. How quickly the GOP forgets what something so central to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as health insurance was like before the national healthcare law was imple mented. You know about all the great things in Obamacare: no more denials for pre-existing conditions, kids can stay on their parents insurance longer, no co-pays for preventative care, making insurers spend 80-85 percent of our premiums on actual healthcare, and if not, refund the difference. But theres another provision of the law that has gotten much less play in the media. Obamacare included greater authority for the states to regulate insurance premiums. It was among many features of the law that gave more power to states in hopes they would use it to help consumers. But here in the Sunshine State, our leaders battles than getting more people health insurance and reducing healthcare costs. So, they placed a small provision into a much larger 2013 bill (SB 1842) that stripped Regulation of its authority to review insurance rates, and reject those deemed too high, for two years. The head of said agency, political appointee Kevin McCarty, has said theres no need for such authority, which would require insurance companies to prove to the state its rates are reasonable. Last year, with Obamacare being rolled out and insurers competing for the new business, the tional healthcare law on premiums. But when insurers submitted their new rates to the state recently, in some counties they were much higher than the current rates while others saw slight drops or others level rates. The state is expecting a 13 percent jump on average, though some counties could see 20-plus percent increases and others single-digit decreases, depending on which companies are selling plans in the respective counties. Insurers argue the rise was due to covering more aging and/or sick people than they expect ed. While thats a convenient excuse, Id like to see the numbers. But, of course, no one outside of the insurance companies can get them because of the change in state law. The truth is, its impossible to make sweep ing statements about the rates because what you pay for health insurance not only depends on the rates companies charge, but also on your age, whether you smoke, the state and county you live your premium is paid by the government. In fact, Oregon is expecting a 5 percent av erage drop in rates. Here in Baker County, the state reports the jump will be $17 a month for silver plans, which are the most commonly selected on the federal exchange. And while premiums are still rising nationally, the rate at which theyre rising has slowed since Obamacare was implemented. Its not perfect and its a work in progress, but our state leaders would drop this charade, stop sending our federal healthcare funding to other states for political reasons, and give the state back its ability to negotiate premium rates. I believe all three will happen eventually, but sooner would be better than later. LIKE US ONFACEBOOK TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION On Point In PrintJoel Addington Labor Day plans ...

I felt like I might win but it would be a close race. Ive heard that most people who tried to predict the race had the opinion that it could go either way, and would most likely be a close race. But, all you can do in a campaign is work hard to get elected and then the people vote, and thats what I did. After some prayer, Mr. Giddens said hes come to peace with the outcome and hes looking forward to spending more time with his wife, family and friends. I can now focus on growing my private sector business, focus on my family, and have more free time. The duties put on the shoulders of a county commissioner are very heavy, and a lot of hours are spent working on and thinking about decisions because they impact a lot of people, he said. It is a big burden on oneself and family members. Between now and November, Mr. Giddens plans to continue to advocate for keeping taxes low and passing a budget that doesnt result in county employee layoffs. Commissioners are set to vote on their budget and property tax rate on September 4 [see related story on front page]. I have not been afraid to make the unpopular tough decisions, because I know if we dont, we will face even tougher times in the future, Mr. Giddens said. Now that the duties will be passed on, I look forward to Mr. Bennetts plans and initiatives to bring the fiscal state of the county out of its bind, without laying off county employees or raising our taxes. The people of the county have elected him for such a time as this. As for me, I will continue to work just as hard as Ive worked the last few years. I will vote on decisions that I feel are in the best interest of the people of our county. We will pass the budget for next fiscal year soon, and I will continue to fight for no tax increase and no county employee layoffs. For the time being, he has no plans to run for another public office, Mr. Giddens said, despite hearing from people be fore and after the primary that he should seek a state or county post. But he has thought about it. I will weigh all options and opportunities as they come, he said. As of right now, I will finish out my term as commissioner and I look forward to spending more time with my wife, family and friends. Like Mr. Giddens, school board candidates Jody Anderson and Artie Burnett, who will face off in the general election, felt good about their chances going into last weeks election. Because none of the three can didates in the District 4 school board race secured a majority (more than 50 percent), the top two vote getters have a runoff set for November 4. Tuesday I felt good. I felt positive, said Mr. Burnett, who is pursuing his second term in office. I expected there to be a runoff. Its kind of hard to get 50 percent plus one. I didnt have any thoughts I could get that. Ive only seen one person do that in my time watching. Mr. Anderson, a political newcomer, was a little ner vous heading into the election but prayer and family support helped prop him up, he said. For my first time as a candidate I was very pleased with the outcome and the support of the citizens, said Mr. Anderson by e-mail. I think everything went great and I truly enjoyed going door-to-door meeting new people and getting fresh ideas. He also said he appreciated that the District 4 race in which Mr. Burnett received 42 percent of the vote compared to Mr. Andersons 35 percent was clean. Both candidates said they intend to continue campaign ing and knocking on doors between now and election day. I know Jodys going to work hard and Im going to work hard and let the best man win, commented Mr. Burnett. The closest contest last week was the race for the Republican Partys nomination for the countys next clerk of courts, who also serves as comptroller here. The position is held today by Al Fraser, who announced his retirement earlier this year. Chuck Brannan defeated Jackie Baker by just 8 points 54 percent to 46 percent for the nomination. I was pleased with the result and appreciative of the citizens giving me the opportunity to move on to the general election, Mr. Brannan said in a written statement. He said the high turnout was indicative of the high level of engagement by the community in the primary. Our citizens are always engaged and enthusiastic when it comes to their politics and their leaders, said Mr. Brannan.

Emerging as the Democrat nominee for the clerks job, from a field of five, was deputy clerk Stacie Harvey. She as well as Mr. Bennett did not return requests for comment. From page 1Hopefuls: now eyes on NovemberMIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF A major rewrite of Baker Countys zoning code, which was shelved last year after a controversy erupted over sand mining, could be another year away from completion now that a zoning advisory panel has been tasked with a more extensive review of the code. The countys five-member Land Planning Agency, or LPA, will schedule a series of public workshops and hearings in the coming year to study numerous potential changes in the Land Development Regulations, or LDRs, which govern all zoning decisions. The volunteer board met the evening of August 28 and approved a list of 13 topics to study in the LDR revision process, with mining heading the list. I would love to be done by a year from now, Planning and Zoning Director Ed Preston told the board. One of the main questions to be answered in the months ahead is whether sand mining should be banned or at least restricted to areas zoned only for industrial purposes and excluded in all other zoning districts. Today, mining is also allowed in agriculture districts with a special exception granted by county commissioners, which is what Oldcastle Southern Group, a subsidiary of a global construction conglomerate based in Ireland, had sought from the county before commissioners denied the request in July 2013. The county commission was caught squarely in the middle of a battle between Oldcastle and its promises of economic payoffs and the Baker County Conservation Alliance, a grassroots environmental group that portrayed mining as bad news for the countys natural resources and rallied the support of many voters countywide. Large landowners in the county weighed in on the issue over a year ago when they came out in opposition to further restrictions on mining, arguing that they would violate their rights as property owners and limit their ability to profit from their real estate investments. A similar concern over property rights was voiced during the August 28 LPA meeting by two leaders of the Baker County Business Alliance, president Doug Moore and treasurer John Kennedy. I represent a group of land owners and business owners with the goal to protect property rights, Mr. Kennedy told the board, adding that the business alliance wants to be part of any discussions that could lead to further restrictions on what property owners may do with their land. However, Mr. Kennedy assured LPA members, Were here in a supportive role, not a combative role. Mr. Moore, who owns a 2,400-acre tree farm south of Sanderson, pointed out to the board that in his view some have discouraged growth in Baker County and that has adversely affected the local economy and stifled jobs. Florida Trend magazine, for example, has portrayed Baker County as not business friendly, Mr. Moore said, predicting that any further restrictions on land uses and zoning would further discourage business development. In addition to mining, the list of issues to be reviewed and considered for chang es in the LDRs include: Gun ranges, noise, adult entertainment, gambling, road paving requirements, mobile home restrictions, home occupation, rural commercial, sig nage, road access management, homestead division and multi-family. Mr. Preston said the issues would have to be addressed in separate ordinances, which will expedite the process. We can give the commission one ordi nance at a time, he said. We dont have to give them everything at once. In a memorandum to the county commission, dated July 8, 2014, Mr. Preston said the purposes of the new LDRs are to: and standards for review and approval of all proposed land development in the county. ty, comfort, and welfare, and to aid in the harmonious, orderly, aesthetically pleasing and socially beneficial development of the county in accordance with the comprehen sive plan. review process that is: efficient, in terms of time and expense; effective, in terms of addressing the natural resource and public facility implications of the proposed development; and equitable, in terms of consistency with established regulations and procedures, respect for the rights of property owners and consideration of the interests of the citizens of the county. prehensive Plan as required by the Local Government Comprehensive Planning and Land Development Regulation Act. LPA member Philip Zamarron suggested Mr. Preston develop a website to dispense and receive information and solicit input from the public, including the scheduling of workshops to discuss proposed new LDRs. Administrative changes to the LDRs were approved by the county commission in June, but those affecting specific land uses were sent back to the LPA for further study, including those affected by changes in state laws since 2011 regarding electronic gaming parlors, gun ranges and adult entertainment establishments. LDRs will become part of the countys 2020 Comprehensive Plan.LPA to tackle nuts, bolts of new zoning codeAlumni reunionThe reunion of alumni of the former Taylor School and their friends will be held on Saturday, September 6 starting at 5 pm at the Ag Center Meat, bread and beverages will be provided, so please bring a vegetable, salad or des sert.

While county government continues to struggle with $1 City of Macclenny pares its expenses in anticipation of massive utility repairs in the near future, the Town of Glen St. Mary anticipates taking in than it spends. The budget presented August 19 by Mayor Juanice Padgett and expected to be passed later this month proposes spending of $294,702 in both the general and water and sewer funds, and anticipates revenues of $327,315. cess revenues from high-use sewer and water customers under a new rate schedule also on tap for consideration later this month. The mayor postponed utility rate increases because the required public hearings and ordinance were not advertised in time for consideration at the August meeting. The new rates are not expected to meet member governing board. Glens relatively modest expenditures are due to the few municipal services offered by the small town west of Macclenny. It does not levy a water system and connections to a relatively few sewer through federal grants. The town pays Macclenny $23,200 annually to tie into the citys sewage treatment plant. Next years budget anticipates putting aside $18,000 for future capital and repair expenses to the towns water and sewer system, a step recommended by consultant Bob Mearns of the Florida Rural Water Association in July. He warned the governing board that it falls perilously short of having funds to replace worn-out equipment in coming years, and proposed about one-quarter of water customers and a small number of the towns 56 sewer customers. The hikes that will be considered later this month are expected to bring in about $15,000 more annually. Mayor Padgett also proposed last year that spending remain at 90-95% of revenues to bolster cash reserves that have been dwindling in recent years. The 2014-15 budget adheres to that goal, as does the present one. MIKE ANDERSON PRESS STAFF The validity of zoning regulations requiring all new homes in a subdivision to have direct access to paved roads was upheld by the Baker County Land Planning Agency, or LPA, at a meeting the evening of August 21. The five-member volunteer board rejected an argument put forth by Macclenny contractor Rock Rhoden, who wanted to build four homes on fiveacre lots on Deer Track Drive, a private unpaved road north of Glen St. Mary. I want to keep the county rural, Mr. Rhoden told the LPA. I live on a dirt road. Theres nothing wrong with dirt roads. Furthermore, he said, his proposal would save taxpayers money because, if left private, the road would not become the countys responsibility to maintain. I think private roads are good because they dont cost the county anything, he said. Mr. Rhoden originally went to the county planning department to submit an application for a new subdivision with five-acre lots on a private unpaved road. The four lots in question are part of a larger 60to 70-acre parcel off Cottontail Lane east of Bob Burnsed Road. After Planning Director Ed Preston denied his application Mr. Rhoden appealed the decision to the LPA. His application did not comply with the code, Mr. Preston told the board. He challenged the ordinance. In a report to the LPA panel, Mr. Preston said Mr. Rhoden requested the county reconsider the requirement for direct access to a county-main tained paved road for all new subdivision lots anywhere in the county. The Development Review Committee, which includes the fire department and emergency medical services, also recommended denial because of con cerns that emergency vehicles might not be able to reach the homes due to impassable conditions during heavy rains. According to the county zoning code: All roads and driveways within a subdivision shall be paved and constructed in accordance with the requirements set forth herein and within the Baker County Land Development Regulations. All subdivisions shall have direct paved access to the connection with a county-maintained road or street dedicated to public use which has been accepted for maintenance by the county or Florida Department of Transportation. If the county-maintained road or street is not paved, the developer shall pave the county road or street accepted by the county or state. Mr. Rhoden said his lots are on a high and dry sand hill not likely to ever flood and that it would cost him close to a million dollars to comply with the paving requirements. He said such an expense discourages residential developments, which are needed to expand the countys tax base. I agree we need the developments, said LPA member John Adams. That would be a nice place to build new homes. However, Mr. Adams went on to say that adverse weather can produce undue hardships on people living on dirt roads, especially if they were cut off from emergency vehicles due to impassable road conditions. He said the countys paved road ordinance, which was designed to ensure access to homes by emergency vehicles, was a big deal when it was passed and it was considered to move the county forward in terms of development. Fellow member Philip Zamarron, former chairman of the board, moved to reject Mr. Rhodens appeal. I do not support Mr. Rhodens application and I fully support your recommendation, Mr. Zamarron told Mr. Preston moments before his motion was approved. A third member, Joseph DeFee, said he saw nothing wrong with the current ordinance but stated that he would be willing to support Mr. Rhodens request for a special exception to the zoning to allow him to build the four houses without paving the road in front. After the meeting Mr. Rhoden told Mr. Preston that he will return with an application for a special exception to the zoning code to allow him to build homes on the four lots with frontage on Deer Track Drive. When that happens he may have Mr. DeFee on his side. Mr. DeFee announced during the meeting that he had to leave the board, but he could be present for one more meeting in October. The only other case on the LPA agenda was an application for a special zoning exception to allow two family lots on a 29-acre parcel in a nonconforming subdivision at the west end of Harry Rewis Road, an unpaved road off CR 23A (Lowder Street). The applicant, Mitch Canaday, told the board he wants to give his two sons two acres apiece on which to build their homesteads near his residence. The area is zoned agriculture with a density of no more than one residence for every 7.5 acres. Mr. Preston recommended denial of the application because the parcel was divided and developed without regard to subdivision regulations resulting in a non-conforming status. A neighbor, Ron Robinson, appeared before the LPA board to offer his support for Mr. Canaday. I have no objection, Mr. Robinson told the man wants to give some land to his children, let the man do it. The board unanimously approved the application for two family lots with two stipulations. No more than two family lots will be permitted and Mr. Canaday must give the county a 60-foot-wide easement on the road.Budget showing a surplus in GlenUpholds road paving ruleLPA denies contractors appealFree seminarA free seminar will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Macclenny on practical steps you can take for cancer prevention.

Mr. Mills insisted he was holding the pills for a female passenger, who denied the allegation. It took several deputies and two shots with a Taser gun to subdue a Macclenny man in House on South 6th in the early hours of August 31. The suspect, Christopher Rodgers, 32, was followed by Lt. Scotty Rhoden as he turned onto the restaurant property about 2 a.m. Moments before, saw the suspects 2014 KIA northbound without headlights. Lt. Rhoden was soon joined by Sgt.

They were soon joined by other depu ties including Michael Hauge, who pried Mr. Rodgers arms from the steering wheel and dragged him from the vehicle.

FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said, The departmetn recognizes that making our roads safer includes driver responsibility and encourages all motorists not to drive drowsy. Be alert every trip, every time you get behind the wheel. Six years ago, the life of a little girl was tragically taken in a crash that easily could have been prevented, added state Rep. Alan Williams, who sponsored prevention week legislation in 2010. Drowsy driving can be eliminated by simply planning and making a conscious decision to pull over and rest when youre tired. I applaud Ronshays family for keeping her memory alive senseless deaths. for preventing fatigue driving: Allow plenty of time to get to your destination. Avoid driving times when normally youd be sleeping. Drive sober. Get a good nights sleep before traveling. Take a break every two hours. Take a 15-20 minute nap in a safe place if you think youre falling asleep. switch drivers when needed.Dangers of drowsy driving
