Scores on state FCAT writing exams have plummeted in Baker County classrooms, including sharp drops this year by eighth graders, since the state began raising proficiency standards two years ago.

Only 65 percent of the county’s 10th graders passed the test this spring, which was considerably better than the 41 percent of eighth graders, who fell 10 percent from the previous year. Fourth graders at Keller Intermediate, meanwhile, improved 3 percent but still had only 41 percent of students score proficient in writing.

Opposite mining forces gird for a battle

Oldcastle Southern Group has been putting on a major public relations campaign to gain support for its sand mining plans in southeastern Baker County. But opponents of the proposal are working just as hard to convince county officials to kill the project.

The issue could be decided on July 16. The county commission has scheduled a hearing at 6 pm that day to consider Oldcastle’s request for a special zoning exception to allow sand mining for up to 50 years in an area zoned agriculture in the southeastern part of the county.
