Two checks cashed


in Valdosta area by


missing local man


Two clues consisting of cancel-
led checks surfaced this week to
give police and relatives some hope
that John W. Walker of Sanderson
is still alive.
Mr. Walker, 45, has not been
seen since February 1 when he
walked off from an estimated's po-
sition with the
state road de-


apartment and
away from his
mobile home
off Reid Staf-
ford Road
south of Inter-
state 10.
Mr. Walker,
who had an
excellent work
record going
back 27 years,
was reported
missing two
days later. He
withdrew
$3300 from
Mercantile
Bank's branch
in Glen St. Ma-
ry and vanish-
ed with his red
extended cab
Toyota pickup
truck.
On Tuesday
of this week,
his bank re-
ported two
personal
checks written


STILL MISSING
Mr. Walker is
5'9" tall, weighs
180 pounds and
has brown eyes
and brown hair.
If you know any-
thing about his
whereabouts, or
think you may
have seen him,

Investigator
Mike Combs at

by Mr. Walker had cleared, both
from the Valdosta, Ga. area.
According to sheriff's investiga-
tor Mike Combs, one was written
February 28 for $49.41 at Winn-


Dixie, the other on March 3 for $81
at a Harvey's Supermarket, an affil-
iate of Food Lion.
.Investigator Combs was due to
meet later that day with John Walk-
er, Sr., the missing man's father and
ex-sheriff of Taylor County, Flori-
da. Mr. Walker has been staying at
his son's trailer off and'on since the
disappearance.
"There's still no sign of foul
play," commented the investigator.
"The signatures on the checks seem
to match the ones we have on file.
We plan to talk to the store people
to see what we can learn about what
he may have bought, or whether he
was with someone when he wrote
those checks."
Described as a quiet person "who
blended into the background," Mr.
Walker was not known to be in
trouble of any kind when he disap-
peared.
He had been in contact with one
of his two ex-wives, who lives in
Macclenny, and a daughter on Feb-
ruary 1 when last seen.
Ex-Sheriff Walker said his son is
an expert animal trapper and out-
doorsman, and very capable of liv-
ing off the land or in a campground
setting for extended periods.
"He could probably make that
$3300 last longer than most of us,"
said the father, who now lives in
Tallahassee. He said the son has a
severe asthma condition and took
medication with him when he left.
Prior to this week, authorities
had turned up no concrete leads by
keeping an eye on Mr. Walker's
ATM and credit card accounts.
They showed no activity.

BY NANCY SZANTO
News Editor
The newly appointed county
Buildings and Facilities Committee
may have seen first-hand the best
indicator as to why Sheriff Joey
Dobson wants a new jail when it
toured the facility March 3.
The jail housed 137 inmates that
morning, six over capacity.
Of that number, only 46 were
"paying customers" boarded fed-
eral prisoners. The county gets $48
a day for each of them.
Last week's population reflects a
drop from 2000-2003, when the av-
erage boarder population was above
60 and often peaked at 70 or more.
Local inmates, meanwhile, have
doubled from a 2000 average of
about 50. "The judges are sentenc-
ing more people to jail time than
they used to," noted committee
chairman Jim McGauley.
Neither during the tour nor in an
hour-long discussion afterwards
was there any mention of where to
build a new jail to house up to 350
inmates.
Sheriff Dobson wants to consid-
er building on a new location of at
least 14 acres. A design by architect
firm Clemons, Rutherford and As-
sociates of Tallahassee allows for
expansion of inmate "pods" center-
ed around a control tower.
The Baker County Commission
favors keeping the jail near the
courthouse the board has even
tentatively offered to relocate its


Tempers flare over payment of restaurant bills


BY JIM McGAULEY
Press Publisher
Tempers appeared to have cool-
ed and hurt feelings soothed a bit
after a dust-up in the ranks of coun-
ty government last week over a re-
quest for reimbursement made by
County Manager Jason Griffis.
A meeting requested by Mr. Grif-
fis with the County Commission on
Tuesday afternoon, ostensibly to
"clear his name" was cancelled by
Chairman Julie Combs.
Ms. Combs said she countered
Mr. Griffis' request partly because


he doesn't have the power to call a
commission meeting, and partly
because the controversy had died
down and the air had cleared.
So what happened?
On February 24, Manager Grif-
fis sought re-payment for lunches
on previous successive days in Tal-
lahassee and Jacksonville. The total
- $164.42.
Debbie Perryman, the county's
finance director, refused to issue a
check based on the voucher; which
had attached receipts from Febru-
ary 23 at Durango Steakhouse in


Mamie Combs became the first Glen St. Mary water customer the morning of February
24 as plumber Michael Boyette prepared to connect a line to e side of her home. At left

tinue through mid-summer.


Tallahassee, and from the follow-
ing day at Applebees on Jackson-
ville's southside.
Ms. Perryman sought advice
from the county's auditor in Gaines-
ville. He told her not to pay it be-
cause it violated policy.
She kicked the voucher back to
Mr. Griffis, who allegedly lost his
temper and chewed her out in a
threatening manner.
Angry, she fired off a memo to
Clerk of Courts Al Fraser recount-
ing the incident and again insisting
she was not going to pay the bill. If


county employees want reimburse-
ment for meals while on business
out-of-town, they should submit re-
quests for the per diem (daily) ap-
proved allowance.
In the case of lunches, that
means $6 a day.
The $164 was spent on lunches
attended by county employees and
others while on official business,
said Mr. Griffis this week.
The one in Jacksonville included
himself, Building Official Robert
Hathcox, Zoning Director Cathy
Rhoden, Zoning Code Officer Bob-


by Hancock and Amanda Smith of
the Northeast Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council.
The group was consulting with
the planning agency on the propos-
ed Adar development north of Glen
St. Mary and other growth matters.
In Tallahassee the following day,
the activity was pre-session lobby-
ing for funds for the St. Marys
Shoals park project.
Mr. Hancock and Ms. Rhoden
were on that trip as well, along

1st Glen utilities sign-up

The Town of Glen St. Mary, af- and non-profit (church) customers details as the $1.37 million project

and seemingly endless quests for to Glen Mayor Juanice Padgett, the tial customers they will need a li-
grants and loans, is finally in the first commercial hookups to the censed plumber to certify the con-
water and sewer utilities business, sewer system could come later this nection even if they do the work


The morning of February 24,
Mamie Combs became the town's
first official water customer when a
plumber connected her block home
off Parmalee St. to the newly in-
stalled water system.
"I'm as proud of this as I was
when they widened US 90," re-
marked Mrs. Combs as she watch-
ed plumber Michael Boyette pres-
sure-test and clean the incoming
line. "I'd say this is progress!"
She was among the first wave of
water customers connected for a
nominal $35, thanks to a CDBG
grant for which 46 residents of south
Glen St. Mary qualified. As of this
week, 22 of them have done so.
A nearly equal number do not
qualify for the grant subsidy, and
will be notified in coming weeks
when it is time for their sections of
the south town to connect.
An additional 25 commercial


week.
"We have one customer (Ronie's
Foods) that has been having a sep-
tic tank crisis and he needs to get
on the system first," said the mayor.
Glen St. Mary's sewer lines go
east and west on US 90 downtown,
and link up with Macclenny's sys-
tem east of town similar to both
Baker High and Westside Elemen-
tary nearby.
A sewer line has been buried
along Taber Blvd. near the west
limits as well, and residents have
the option of connecting to it.
Glen is assessing a $750 connect
fee for sewer lines along 90, and
water connection if done before
July 1 will be free. The new con-
struction connect charge is likewise
$750, based on what Macclenny is
charging.
Mayor Padgett, who has been
handling many of the day-to-day


themselves.
Plumbers attest to the fact that
all existing water lines are shut
down. The town will allow the dis-
connected water pumps to be used
for irrigation and lawn watering,
however.
Mayor Padgett expects a flurry
of questions as the connection pro-
cess goes into the summer months,
and she can be contacted at town
hall, 259-3777, on weekdays from
8:30-12:30.
The town has begun application
for grant and loan funds to connect
the north side to the water system,
and sink a second well required by
the state as an auxiliary.
So far, Glen has secured a $1.04
million loan through the USDA, a
$733,000 state grant and a half mil-
lion from CDBG to design and
build the initial network.


administrative offices, building and
zoning and environmental health,
to free the space occupied by two
buildings along North Third Street.
The commission also frets over
lack of a long-term contract with
the US Marshal's office to house
federal prisoners here. That board-
ing arrangement is part of the rea-
son for the overcrowding.
There is a steady increase in lo-
cal inmates, Sheriff Dobson stress-
ed, to the point where he often has
to turn away the lucrative boarders.
The $48 per day fee more than cov-
ers the approximately $15 cost of
food and supplies per boarder, and
covers more than $1 million of the
sheriff's $4.4 million annual bud-
get. Law enforcement expenses are
23% of the county's total $18.8
million total spending for 2004-05.
A new jail would cost an esti-
mated $8-10 million, and Sheriff
Dobson noted before the tour be-
gan, "The School Board just com-
mitted to borrow $8 million for a
new pre-kindergarten school center.
But the county commission won't
commit to that much for a new jail
that would bring it more money."
The Clemons, Rutherford firm
will prepare plans for the new pre-k
center to be built aside the school
district office.
Despite the lack of a written con-
tract, Dan Broome of the US Mar-
shal's Office said Baker County is

Driver dies

as pickup

hits a semi
Baker County's third traffic fa-
tality of 2005 occurred late Mon-
day when the driver of a pickup
truck veered into the median of In-
terstate 10 west of Sanderson and
struck a westbound twin-trailer
UPS truck.
The collision caused the semi-
truck to veer onto the south shoul-
der where one of the trailers over-
turned. A fuel tank on the 1992 In-
ternational also ruptured, causing
westbound traffic to be diverted at
US 90 for nearly four hours.
The pickup driver, 34-year-old
James J. Brown of Marion, S.C.,
was dead at the scene. Trooper
Brian Lamb of the Florida High-
way Patrol said Mr. Brown's 1994
Ford left the eastbound lanes for
an unknown reason and plowed
through a wet median before strik-
ing the trailers.
The driver was not wearing a
Seat belt, and a German Shepherd
puppy with him survived.
The driver of the UPS truck,
37-year-old Vernon D. Dennis of
Jacksonville, was not injured.
According to Sgt. Billy Miller
of the Baker County Sheriff's Of-
fice, a private hazardous materials
team was summoned from Jack-
sonville shortly after the accident.
It occurred about midway be-
tween the I-10 rest area and the
US 90 exit near Sanderson.

office. They were joined at lunch
by Jim Crosby, secretary for the
Department of Corrections and a
friend of Mr. Griffis' from his days
as a prison guard, Macclenny City
Manager Gerald Dopson, Mr.
Griffis' father-in-law, and city zon-
ing officer Roger Yarbrough.
"This was a misunderstanding,"
said the county manager this week.
"I wasn't aware that I couldn't get
paid back on my credit card, that it
was against county policy."
Though all the county employ-
ees at both lunches were eligible
for individual re-imbursement, the
county has no responsibility pay-
ing for Mr. Crosby, Manager Dop-
son, Mr. Yarbrough or Ms. Smith
of RPC.
Had Ms. Perryman approved pay-
ment, that's exactly what would
have happened.
There's also the matter of the
voucher itself, signed by Commis-
sioner Combs over her typed name.
Except she never signed it.
At the request of Mr. Griffis,
the document was apparently sign-
ed by one of the office secretaries,
though no one is saying who. A
copy of it obtained by the newspa-
per bears no indication by initials
or otherwise that it was signed by
a proxy.
When Ms. Combs learned about
that, plus the auditor's opinion and
the finance-director's claims that
Mr. Griffis had threatened her, yet
another official was added to the
stack of smoldering tempers.
County Attorney Terry Brown
was called into the pit last week to
interpret policy and determine if
any laws were broken. He appar-
ently concurred with the auditor
and admonished the county mana-
ger for his treatment of Ms. Perry-
man, a longtime county employee.
The administration was in a
damage control mode.
Ms. Perryman this-week declin-
ed on-the-record comment and a
copy of her memo to Clerk Fraser
was promised to the newspaper
Tuesday afternoon via fax from at-


torney Brown but never arrived.
As for Chairman Combs, she is
convinced no fraudulent intent ex-
isted on the part of Mr. Griffis, and
he did not coerce a secretary into
signing her name to the voucher.
"Somebody did sign my name,
but they didn't even pretend to
make it look like my signature, so
I don't think it was fraud," said
Ms. Combs.
As for the future, no one is to
sign her name unless she is aware
of it, and they add an "as per" with
their initials or name to indicate
who did it.
Mr. Griffis says he is contrite
for any offensive behavior toward
Ms. Perryman, who he says "does
a great job."
However, Attorney Brown ad-
vised the manager not to talk to
her for the time being.
The manager is a bit red-faced
about calling a special meeting of
the board at 5:00 pm Tuesday a
meeting he isn't empowered to call.
"I got upset. I thought the meet-
ing would be a good way to air
who's got a beef against who -
things like that," he explained.
"I wanted to get it out there and
clear my name. I didn't want peo-
ple out there to think I was acting
fraudulently."
As for the $164 for the two
"power" lunches, they'll just have
to be his treat.


Firemen train on new air packs...
Volunteers from several departments participated February 26 in the second of three train-
ing sessions in operation of newly purchased portable air tanks (self-contained breathing
apparatus) used for entering buildings that are dense with smoke. Pictured here are J.C:
Crews, Mack Renninger and Dale McDonald taking instruction from Chief Richard Dolan
and Assistant Chief John Motherwell during a session at the emergency services center
The county acquired 46 of the air packs along with 54 masks and spare oxygen bottles via
a $185,000 grant for which the county had to put up ten percent. The packs replace ones in
use as long as 20 years and donated originally as surplus property from Jacksonville Fire

'Favored status'...


3ald and

zrav hair


these days


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


I was driving home with my
n from the Southeastern Theatre
conference last weekend, and ev-
*rywhere we looked were guys on
motorcycles heading for Daytona.
t's bike week in Daytona and bik-
[r dudes and dudettes are out in
orce.
When I think of bikers, I get
ihis mental image of James Dean,
cr a 20-something Marlon Brando
or Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda
knd Jack Nicholson riding around
pn choppers. However, when I
looked at the guys who were actu-
ally riding these bikes I discovered
they are as old or older than I am.
That struck me as strange -
went against all my expectations.
No pony tails or tattoos on these
rebels. These weren't rebels with-
iout a cause they were rebels with-
lout hair.
I thought about this as I drove
down 1-95, and more and more mo-
torcycle riders cruised past me.
What I was seeing was not the
Hell's Angels Motor Club. It was
'the AARP Silver Choppers Motor
Club.
I guess this is what happens
when some guys go middle-aged
crazy. They get motorcycles. The
cycles reach back into their own
dim past when ,heir moms .and
dads said, "Ae' you crazy? You're
not buying a motorcycle, junior.
You'll get killed on one of those
rolling coffins."
Now they are moms and dads. I
also noticed something else the
price tags of one of these rolling
engines. It is not unusual to find a
motorcycle that costs more than a
family car. These geezers are the
only ones who can afford a $30,000
piece of metal.
My sons are devoted followers
of the program American Chopper.
The American Chopper guys, if
you haven't seen the Discovery
Channel show, build these amaz-
ing custom bikes that cost as much
as a BMW one of them cost
$150,000. No wonder the guys
rolling past me on the Interstate
were 50 or 60 years old.
My kids always griped that
when they were growing up.
"How come all the old guys have
the great cars?" Dylan would ask.
"Because the great cars cost a
bundle," I would answer.
"Does that mean when you get
to be that guy's age, that we'll get
to ride around in a great car like
that one?" asked Spencer.
"Don't count on it. See that
gray haired guy with the contented
smile on his face? He doesn't have
that contented smile because he is
a school teacher. He has that con-
tented smile because he is a CEO
of a big company."
"What does CEO mean?"
S"It means he can afford that big
car."

Sara Beth was frowning as she
looked down at the old guy in the
great BMW convertible. In the seat
next to him was a dazzling blonde
about half his age.
"How come all the old guys in
the great cars have really young
girls with them?" my daughter ask-
ed. "Are those girls their daugh-
ters?"
"Not exactly. They are just
young enough to be their daugh-
ters. They are an accessory like
tinted windows and an Alpine
sound system that comes with the
car. Those girls are called trophy
wives."
"Oh. Does that mean they won
trophies or something for being
beauty queens,' she asked, looking
down into the great car as the 20ish


babe tossed her perfect hair and ad-
justed her Oakley sunglasses.
"Kind of. The trophy they won
is that old guy in the great car. And
visa versa."
"Wow. A chauffeur. That would
be great," she said.
Great. Yeah.
I've noticed something else.
Old guys on choppers don't usual-
ly have 20 something young babes
riding behind them. I guess 20
something yotng babes don't want
to have their perfect hair whipped
around or have to pick bugs out of
their teeth after riding down 1-95
at 80 mph. Somehow, a convert-
ible BMW roadster is much more
appealing to a trophy wife than a
Harley.

In another annexation item,
City Manager Gerald Dopson had
earlier in the day apologized for
failing to officially notify the
Baker County Commission of
plans to annex south along SR
228.
"We've been approached a
number of times the past year or
so, some pretty large tracts, from
developers wanting to annex
around the city. From now on
when we are considering this, I,
will write a letter to you," Manag-
er Dopson promised, the county
board members.
The interest along 228 is to ex-
tend water and sewer lines to the
new Wal-Mart SuperCenter at the
intersection with Interstate 10.
County Commission Chairman
Julie Combs had called the joint
workshop in hopes the city could
help with reconfiguring William
Barber and E.M. Spence roads on
the east side of SR 228, a require-
ment by the Florida Department
of Transportation to coincide with
the Wal-Mart parking lot exit.

Mr. Broome was invited to the
facilities meeting by the commit-
tee, formed recently to recommend
options to the commission on
county-owed buildings..
Baker County is less than an
hour's drive to the federal court-
house in Jacksonville. If Baker
County had the space available,
Mr. Broome said he could place
140 here nearly all the time.
The marshal's service is not us-
ing Baker County as a prisoner
motel, Mr. Broome noted; many
boarders are here six months or
longer through preliminary hear-
ings, trial and sometimes as wit-
nesses in other court actions.
"But you're wanting us to build
with local money for federal pris-
oners. Immigration and federal are
not local problems," protested com-
mittee member Bobby Hancock.
"It would not overload the local
tax base. If we double the federal
prisoners, it will make enough to
pay off and operate a new facility,"
Sheriff Dobson countered.

jail in 1984 and to convert the un-
used gymnasium to a dormitory in
1998.
Many areas are still geared to
the 42 inmates, the number for
which the original jail was built in
1974. The control room is a tiny
closet-size space that holds one
person, the interview room is not
much bigger, the visitor section
has only four telephone stations
separated by glass partitions, the
booking station uses part of a hall-

"Getting that money is the luck
of the draw, considering who else
is trying to tap it. I can't tell you

could possibly get some this fiscal

He also said a good relationship
with the Marshal's Office could
bring other benefits.
"We'd look to be sure Baker
County got all possible money," he
added. This could include a trans-
portation agreement for the in-
mates' appearances in Duval
County's federal courthouse, and
participation in special task forces
that could result in some of the
revenue from seized assets.

City's adjustment board quickly approves

exception for dual-use as a car lot on South 6th


A quick public hearing was all
it took March 7 to give. Sean
Brown a special exception he
needs to operate an auto sales lot
on South Sixth Street.
There were no objections from
neighboring businesses or others,
so the Macclenny Zoning Adjust-
ment Board voted approval.
The lot has been used for auto-
related businesses at least since
1976, when it was opened for ve-
hicle sales.
Ironically, the owner then was
Roger Yarbrough, who is now
Macclenny's code enforcement of-
ficer. He recently discovered me-
chanic Calvin Johnson was violat-
ing the zoning ordinance by also
displaying vehicles for sale.
As City Manager Gerald Dop-
son explained to the adjustment
board, a lapse in use nullifies a
special exception, so Mr. John-
son's use of the lot exclusively for
repairs did not allow him to add
the sales.
* Mr. Johnson will still do repairs
on the back section of the lot, Mr.
Brown explained. There will ini-
tially be only about 10-15 vehicles
lined up for sale, and the total will
never top 40, Mr. Brown said. He
is leasing the lot from Theron
Helms.
In a short workshop following
the hearing, Manager Dopson ex-
plained the special exception pro-
cess.
"The use is allowed in a speci-
fic zoning, but the adjustment
board considers if the requested
use will cause traffic, noise or oth-
er problems in that neighborhood.
We want businesses to be success-
ful, but we also want them to be
aesthetic assets to the community,"


he said.
Neighborhood sentiment is a
strong factor in whether the adjust-
ment board grants land use chang-
es, Manager Dopson said.
"Developers sometimes say they
have an attorney's opinion that the
board shouldn't grant a use in one
area and not in another. But we've
always felt if the neighbors take
the time to voice their concern, the
board should be receptive," he ex-
plained.
That stance is upheld by Florida
Statutes and case law, attorney
Frank Maloney agreed. He cited a
case in St. Johns County, where a
bar and restaurant lost its special
exception for failure to abide by a
noise abatement agreement. The
revocation was upheld all the way
through appeals court, and the
Florida Supreme Court declined to
review the.case.
"I would think it's ridiculous to
say public sentiment shouldn't
play a part," noted board Chair-
man Mark Bryant. Before being
appointed to the adjustment board,
Mr. Bryant was among the leaders
of a successful effort to quash a
proposed duplex rental complex
near his northeast Macclenny
neighborhood.
In another issue raised by board
member Gil Crowser, Manager
Dopson said the city is unable to
enforce deed restrictions that do
not violate zoning. Mr. Crowser's
neighbors in the Powell Bluff sub-
division had informally agreed in
the 1980s to lot sizes, but had nev-
er registered that pact at the court-
house. So they had no recourse
when one owner decided not to
comply.
Even with registered restric-


tions, the city would play no part
in enforcement, Manager Dopson
stressed. However, either a home-
owner association or individuals in
the subdivision could have brought
a civil lawsuit.
Board members were told it is
acceptable and even advisable to
discuss pending issues with con-
cerned citizens as well as to visit
the site of proposed land use'chang-
es.
"Your decisions are legislative,
so you want input. But when the
city council is to act on rezoning,
that is judicial and so the city com-
missioners should not be talking
with individuals about it," attorney
Maloney advised.
It is also okay for adjustment
board members to get information
from the city building and zoning
department. "We're even willing
to take you to the site, show you
what's being asked, the lot size,
what's adjacent," Mr. Yarbrough
said.
"However, we don't want board
members talking with each other
about these issues except in a meet-
ing," Manager Dopson warned in
reference to Florida's Sunshine
Law.


In a final item, the increase in
development may have the board
meeting more frequently, Manager
Dopson said.
"Housing concepts are drasti-
cally changing, for lot sizes and
setbacks. Used to be, you needed
two or three acres for a 2500
square foot home, and you needed
to get to the back yard with your
pickup truck. I know we're going
to be under scrutiny about keeping
our open rural feeling, but what
people, want is going to play a
role."
The Zoning Adjustment Board
meets only on pending petitions.

Cops strike man with a

flashlight during scuffle


A county deputy subdued a
Jacksonville man by hitting him
several times in the head with a
flashlight after the man jumped
another deputy and tried to take
his gun.
Darrell Harris, 38, was arrested
March 5 for battery on an officer
and possession of cocaine, both
felonies, and resisting with vio-
lence, a misdemeanor.
Acting on a tip, deputies Mich-
ael Crews and Darrin Whitaker
went to the Citgo store on CR 125
near Interstate 10 around 5:00 am
to arrest Rusty Canaday on an out-
standing warrant.
The car he was in belonged to
Mr. Harris, who exited the store
and returned to the car.


WOODYS


After the officers determined
that he gave them a false name,
they searched him, finding several
rocks of crack cocaine.
As Deputy Whitaker searched
the car, Mr. Harris rushed him,
jumped on his back and tried to
get his gun.
Sgt. Crews ordered him to stop,
then hit him several times with his
flashlight.
Mr. Harris stopped trying to get
the gun, but grabbed the crack.
Deputy Crews grabbed him by
the throat to prevent him from
swallowing it. He was able to get a
couple of pieces to go down, but
the officers recovered nine.
The officers received minor in-
juries during the scuffle.

Cyclist is injured by turning car on US 90 last week...
James Stokes, 26, of Glen St. Mary was flown to Shands Jacksonville the afternoon of February 28 after this Yamaha motorcycle he was
riding struck the right side of a Chevrolet turning onto Thomas Circle from US 90 east of Macclenny. FHP Trooper John Byrd charged
Elsa Algo of Macclenny with a right-of-way violation for turning in front of the westbound motorcycle. Mr. Stokes suffered a broken leg in
the 3:30 pm accident.



Gets a dozen years for rape of teen


A man who gave marijuana and
alcohol to a 13-year-old Glen St.
Mary girl, then raped her and got
her pregnant was sentenced to 12
years in prison by Circuit Judge
David Giant.
William Davis III, 20, pled no
contest February 28 to sexual bat-
tery on a physically incapacitated
victim, a first degree felony, and
lewd assault on a child under 16, a
third degree felony.
Mr. Davis, who was from Baker
County, was living in Lake City
with his pregnant wife, April
Davis, when the assault occurred.
In December 2001, the girl was
visiting a friend on John Allen
Road in Glen St. Mary.
Her friend's sister was Ms.
Davis, who was at the house with
her husband.
Mr. Davis was hitting on the
girl, rubbing her leg and saying his
wife didn't care if he had sex with
someone else.
Ms. Davis confirmed to police
that she had told him it was per-
missible to have sex with another
woman because she'd been un-
faithful.


Hides crack

in belly fold

A 420-pound man was arrested
for drug possession March 2 after
police found crack cocaine hidden
in the fold of his stomach.
An anonymous tip led Deputy
Scotty Rhoden to Grissholm Street
around 10:46 pm where he spotted
Michael Myers.
Mr. Myers attempted to flee by
running into his home, but the offi-
cer followed him inside and found
him leaning against a couch.
"I aint got nothing' Scotty," he
said several times.
Nonetheless, the officer began
to search him, noting, "Mr. Myers'
weight is such that a large portion
of his stomach hangs below his
waistline and Mr. Myers could
possibly conceal objects under his
stomach.
"I was forced to move his stom-
ach up in order to complete the
search of his person."
Investigator Rhoden found a
plastic cigar tube containing sever-
al pieces of crack.
Mr. Myers, 26, was charged
with cocaine possession, a felony.


The pair had been married
about a month before the Decem-
ber 2001 assault, and she was sev-
en months pregnant.
The girl told police Mr. Davis
smoked marijuana with her, then
kept getting her to try drinks, like
Coke, Kool-aid and tea. She said
the'drinks didn't taste right to her.
The girl laid on the floor to
watch a movie. Mr. Davis laid next
to her and his wife next to him.
The girl told police she felt
"weird, dizzy and sleepy" before
falling asleep. When she awvoke
the next morning, her clothing was
askew.
She became pregnant and had
the child, telling her mother that it
belonged to her boyfriend.
A DNA test, however, ruled
him out.
The girl's mother took her to
the Baker County Sheriff's Office
March 1, 2004.
The girl wouldn't admit to hav-


ing sex with anyone but her
boyfriend, but when police asked
her mother to step out of the room,
the girl told her story about Mr.
Davis.
When questioned the same day,
Mr. Davis would admit only to
sexual activity with the girl short
of intercourse. His wife confirmed
his story.
On March 2, the Davises went
to the girl's home to talk to her, but
were rebuffed.
The following day, Ms. Davis
said her husband told her he'd had
consensual intercourse with the
girl.
She said she was upset he'd
lied, but believed the sex was con-
sensual because he was a "good
husband, father and provider."
On March 18, the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement de-
termined through DNA testing that
Mr. Davis was the father of the
girl's baby.

Two men

beat teen
Two men were arrested March
4 for battery after beating a 15-
year-old boy outside a conve-
nience story in Glen St. Mary.
Jason Hodges, 21, of Macclen-
ny and Kyle Hodges, 18, of San-
derson also were charged with dis-
orderly conduct.
Witnesses told Deputy Darrin
Whitaker the two men punched the
boy until they knocked him to the
ground, then began kicking him
outside the EZ Stop on north CR
125.
After the boy pulled a knife, by-
standers broke up the fight and he
ran off.
The officer arrived at 9:50 pm
and arrested the two men, noting
they each smelled strongly of alco-
hol.
In another battery, Christopher
Bellflower, 32, of Macclenny was
arrested March 6 after punching
his neighbor's boyfriend.
Mr. Bellflower said his neigh-
bor on North Boulevard had
dumped trash near the door to his
apartment, which led to an argu-
ment round 3:16 pm.
When the woman's boyfriend
intervened, Mr. Bellflower punch-
ed him in the face.
Deputy William Starling or-
dered him to stop, but he contin-
ued punching the man. He was ar-
rested for battery and disorderly
conduct.

History mural hung at courthouse
Willard Garvin of Macclenny fastens a rear brace with a drill to the large Baker County
history mural before it was permanently affixed to the north hallway wall on the first floor
of the courthouse on March 5. Propping up the other side is Cathy Mendolera, another
Baker County Historical Society volunteer The once-controversial mural was originally
commissioned for an alcove outside the second floor courtrooms, but was banned from
placement there by a circuit judge, who ruled its depiction ofKu Klux Klansmen on horse-
back was inappropriate. The past two years the mural has been displayed near the front
entrance, but not mounted to a wall. Funds for the project, including the commission fee
for artist Gene Barber of Macclenny, came from private sources. Others who worked on
framing the 18 foot mural with red oak are David Little, Gary Poole, Sam Mendolera and
Jerry Peterson. They are members of a non-profit organization sponsored by Raiford Road
Church, and proceeds from the project go to their work in Honduras.

His wife was working at the
Country Club Lounge February 26

He hit her on the buttocks,
which upset her because it was a

into the restroom, but came out .,.
seconds later and said the victim ;" ""
was trying to fight her. '.. "."
Ms. Zeigler advised her to leave ..
the woman alone, but Ms. Gainey
went back in and dragged the ., ,
woman out by her hair. (--'
She then began kicking her in .
the face.
Deputy Tony Norman arrested
Ms. Gainey and had to give her a
shot of mace to get her into his pa- ;'
trol car. :
In addition to battery, she was
charged with resisting an officer
without violence. .. .'.

trouble I'm drunk."
Donn Worley, 39, was picked
up around 6:30 pm while walking
on US 90 near Nursery Boulevard.
He had been arguing with his
father, who would not let him drive
his truck because he was intoxicat-
ed.
In similar cases:
Melissa Ortagus, 33, of Mac-
clenny was arrested March 4 for

at family members.
She refused police orders to
calm down, and continued to try to
start a fight.

rested March 4 for disturbing the
peace at Baker County High
School.
He was in assistant principal

BY MICHAEL RINKER
Sport Editor
After dropping a game to West
Nassau March 1, the Baker County
High School softball team rebound-
ed to blitz Union County and Bald-
win, improving their record to 4-3.
The Lady Cats jumped on the
Indians early and often Monday in
Baldwin, racing to a 12-0 lead by
the third inning on their way to a
13-1 win.
Jessi Nunn, Sarah Bradley,
Shannon Nickels and Kassie
Crews each had two hits, while
Ashley Norman shut out the Indi-
ans until surrendering a run in the
last inning.
Crews drove in three runs;
Canaday two.
For the season, Norman has
given up just five earned runs in
46 innings for a ERA of .76. She
has 48 strikeouts as well.
The Cats put up single runs in
the first and second innings, then
exploded for 10 in the third.
The key hit was, Crews' one-
out, two-run single to score the
first runs of the inning.
Bradley singled and walked,
scoring both times.
Coach Cheryl Nunn began sub-
stituting freely after the third.
For the game, the Cats had 13
hits, all singles. The Indians
helped out with five errors.
On March 4, the Cats hosted
Union County, whom they'd beaten
in Lake Butler two weeks before.
As she did in the first game,
Norman blew away the Tigers,


striking out 10, allowing one hit
and no earned runs in her team's 5-
1 win.
In the earlier game, she punched
out 11 Tigers while giving up no
earned runs.
At the Baker High field, the Cats
broke open a 1-1 game with three

Tennis teams

struggle to

find rhythm

BY LAURA BETH HARVEY
Press Sports
Twenty minutes before Baker
County High School's tennis match
March 8, coach Karla Amburgey
has a very important task getting
her team into their new uniforms.
"When the people came and
modeled them, they were like skin
suits so everybody ordered big,"
she said. "I'm going to be returning
some shirts."
Despite the occasional baggy
shirt, the team looked sharp in its
new red tops and black bottoms.
The boys' and girls' tennis team
matched up against Fernandina
Beach for a second time this season
during the blustery afternoon of
March 8. They were defeated by the
Pirates yet again.
The girls lost 8-0..
At press time, the boys were still
playing, but had mathematically
lost the match.
The losses drop the girls' record
to 2-6 and the boys' to 1-5.
"The season has been fair so far,"
Coach Amburgey said. "They're
young and can improve."
One unavoidable problem is that
many members of the team share
time with other sports and activities.
With 17 players on the team,
however, she is pleased with the
level of the interest in the sport
Unfortunately, competition is
tough against schools such as
Paxon whose players have per-
sonal coaches.


the seventh to give Linster some
breathing room.
Adam Lewis' RBI double was
the key hit.
For the game, Matt Wilson had
two hits; Kelly Davis and Linster
each had a single.
The next day, the Cats lost a
heartbreaker to Union County.
Behind a sterling effort by pitch-
er John Barrett, they took a 2-0 lead
into the seventh, but the Tigers ral-
lied against the bullpen to score
four to take the victory.
Brandon Willey took the loss.
Garrett Milton had a pair of hits
for the Cats, who outhit the visitors
6-5 and had just one error to the
Tigers' 3.


Against Ridgeview, the Wildcats
scored three runs in the bottom of
the second to take a 3-1 lead, but
the Panthers answered with three
consecutive three-run innings.
The Cats got single runs in the
fifth and seventh to make the final
score 10-5.
Davis, Wilson and Sharp each
had two hits.
Willey was tagged with the loss,
dropping his record to 0-2.
On Monday, the Cats fell 5-2 to
Episcopal, giving the Eagles their
first win of the season.
After hosting Bradford County
March 9 at 6:00 pm, the Cats are
off until they travel to Clay County
March 14.

A-Train stops in Baker County
Basketball legendArtisGilmore, who led Jacksonville University to the finals of the
NCAA tournament in 1971, battles former Wildcats star Chris Lamb for a rebound in
a Baker County YMCA game March 3 at First Baptist Church of Macclenny. Below,
Gilmore and Baker County SheriffJoey Dobson rest their 50-something bones on the
bench darling the game, which pitted the sheriff's department against Lamb's Y team.
Despite the presence of the
7'2" former six-time NBA all-
star, the cops lost. Sheriff
Dobson said his team hadn't
won a game all season, so
they good-naturedly asked .
Gilmore to drop by for the
game. Gilmore, who works for
WW Gay in Jacksonville, has
come to the area before to
speak to local groups.
After leaving JU and be-
fore going- to the NBA, Gil-
more went to the oldAmerican
Basketball Association where
he was rookie of the year and
most valuable player in 1971-
72. He is a member of the
ABA's 30-man All-Time team.

Un' te at Lady S' 6ng
OBSERATIOS BYBOB ERAR


If you're a basketball fan, it's the
time of year when.your mouth is
watering and you're reserving a
spot on the couch in front of the big
screen television.
This Sunday, the brackets will be
filled with the 65 teams that will
participate in the Big Dance.
The NCAA basketball tourna-
ment is, to paraphrase Tom Arnold,
the best darned sports show around.
March Madness has already be-
gun, with several great regular sea-
son finales and small conference
championship games this past
weekend.
The Ivy League's University of
Pennsylvania was the first of sever-
al teams to have reserved their
spots in the dance.
Jacksonville University lost by a
point in the semifinals of the At-
lantic Sun tournament. Central
Florida won the tournament to se-
cure its invitation to the NCAA.
This past weekend was a shocker
to some of the big teams.
The Kentucky Wildcats, who
over the years have had the mojo
working against Florida, found
their mojo sadly lacking as the
Gators won a thriller in Gainesville
Sunday.
Undefeated Illinois, the top-
ranked team in the country, got


whacked over the weekend by Ohio
'State and Kansas lost to a middling
Missouri squad.
The loss didn't really hurt the
Illini, which is still ranked number
one and a lock for one of the four
top tournament seeds.
North Carolina, which came
back to. defeat Duke Sunday, also
will get a top seed.
It's likely Wake Forest, which
won a buzzer-beater against North
Carolina State, will get the third
number one seed.
The fourth top seed is anybody's
guess, but candidates include Duke,
Kentucky, Boston College and
Louisville.
Among the next tier are Arizona,
Michigan State, Oklahoma, Okla-
homa State, Gonzaga and defend-
ing champion Connecticut, which
lately is playing as well as any team
in the country.
Holding their breath will be big
names like NC State, Maryland,
New Mexico and West Virginia.
Personally, I love to root for the
little guys, With its recent history of
success, Gonzaga can't really be
considered a little guy any more,
but it would be great to see the Zags
take it all.
The possibilities are what make
March Madness such a great show.


Identified flying oect at Ed White Relays
Baker County High School'sBo Clayton reaches to catch a discus March 4 at Ed White High Schoo 16-school invitational track meet.
An unidentified teammate tossed the discus to Clayton after he retrieved his own throw during the competition. Sharhonda Dinkens was
the only Wildcat to place, taking a second in both the discus and shot put. Coached by Charles Ruise, the track team next competes March
10 at West Nassau. All but one of the team's eight meets this season are away, with the only home date April 11 against the Warriors.


HONORABLE MENTIONS
The Baker County High School
boys' weightlifting team had three
lifters take first place and two take
second in their respective weight
classes in a tri-county matchup in
Union County.
A lifter's score is equal to the
combined weight of two lifts the
bench press and clean-and-jerk
First place finishers were Kevin
Stone (total weight lifted of 390) in
the 139 class, Bo Clayton (485) in
the 183 class and Chris Miller (575)
in the 199 class.
Matt Craig (450) in the 154 class
and Jonathan Trippett (480) in the
183 class each took second place.


Congratulations to the award
winners recognized at the girls' bas-
ketball banquet held Saturday at the
high school cafeteria.
The varsity's most valuable play-
er was Kylee Canaday. For the ju-
nior varsity, Kara Dupree and Jessi
Nunn were co-MVPs.
Offensive player of the year was
Brittany Hinson and defensive play-
er of the year was Sharhonda Din-
kens
Rookie of the year was Deanna
McKenzie.
Sarah Kingbird was most im-
proved player

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission still has
room for women who want to
spend the weekend of April 8
through 10 learning a variety of
outdoor skills and enjoying a few
recreational activities at the
FWC's "Becoming an Outdoors
Woman" camp.
In four, four-hour sessions,
women 18 and older will learn
skills associated with hunting,
fishing and other outdoor recre-
ation at all levels of physical activ-
ity.
The program offers a fun and
supportive atmosphere to experi-
ment and enjoy the camaraderie of
others who want to learn about
Florida's great outdoors.
Although it is designed for
women, the camp is open to any-
one who wants to learn in a com-
fortable, non-threatening, non-
competitive, hands-on atmosphere.
The camp's instructors strive to
make participants feel at ease.
"Patience is the secret to the
success of our Becoming an Out-
doors Woman program," said
Lynne Hawk, director of the pro-
gram. "Our instructors are here to
guide people through the activi-
ties. There is no intimidation."
The workshop will take place at
Camp Wallwood on Lake Talquin
near Tallahassee. Sessions will be-
gin Friday morning and end Sun-
day afternoon.
The cost is $175, however, a
limited number of partial scholar-
ships are available for low-income
participants, single parents and
college students. The workshop is
limited to 100 participants on a
first-come, first-served basis.
Among the session topics are
introductions to bass fishing,
handgun shooting, archery, fly
fishing, outdoor photography and
wilderness survival skills.
Information about the workshop
and registration can be found on
MyFWC.com or by phone at
(850) 413-0085.


County decides to apply

for tax deeds on 13 tracts


Even though it will involve
three homestead properties, the
Baker County Commission voted
March 1 to apply for tax deeds on
13 parcels from 1998.
Tax Collector Gene Harvey ex-
plained the delinquencies are most-
ly for unpaid garbage disposal and
fire protection special assessments,
but some are for regular ad valor-
em taxes.
Mr. Harvey credited his staff for
keeping the number so low. "We
notify these people at least three
times a year: there's a notation on
their new tax bills, we send a re-
minder in July or August, then an-
other later in the year. It is the
same people year after year," he
explained.
That is true of the three home-
steaded properties: Ora and Pansy
Ruise for 1998, 1999 and 2001;
Barbara Akridge for 1998 through
2002; Lynwood and Latryll Griffis
for 1998-2002.
Each tax bill starts at a base val-
ue of $75 for the combined special
assessments. But by the time it be-
came a delinquent certificate, the
tally, comes to $82-84.
By now, however, the redemp-
tion cost to the property owner is
$187.95 with interest and other
costs.
The county will pay $150 per
parcel for title search and related
court expenses. The properties will
then be advertised for sale-and
Clerk of Courts Al Fraser said
there is growing interest.
"Used to be nobody was inter-
ested, but I get inquiries for these
type properties all the time now,"
he said.
There was some concern about
filing for deeds on the homestead
properties. However, Mr. Harvey
explained taking no action was the
same as forgiving the taxes; there
is a seven year deadline for collec-
tion, and the 1998 certificates will
expire in May.
In a sidelight, he noted five cer-
tificates are in the name of the late

CARE


Henry Young, who acquired the
properties by buying certificates on
other delinquent owners.
"Now his heirs don't care about
the properties- some are underwa-
ter and not worth anything, so they
aren't paying the taxes," Mr. Har-
vey said.
The board may decide not to file
deeds on some parcels, but Com-
mission Chairman Julie Combs
noted even swampy lots or very
small parcels in 1920s era subdivi-
sions have value.
"The next conservation sweep
will want the swamp, and in those
old subdivisions of 200 lots only
one or two may have sold-and
some developer will eventually
want them," she reasoned.
The other delinquent owners are
Laviolette Kingsley for 1999; Gris-
son Fulmore for 1998-99; Jacob
Horn for 1998-99; John Erhard for
1998-2002; H.E. Turk for 1998-
2002; Dr. A.L. Lewis for 1998-
2001; Carrie Lester for 1998-99;
Eugene Kesler for 1998-99; Greg-
ory Starling for 1998 and 2001.


Save on the

5-year license

Now's a good time for Florida
residents to buy a five-year fresh-
water fishing license.
The first 3,000 anglers to buy
the $61.50 license will save up to
$20 in fees over the five years, and
will automatically get $80 worth
of free hooks, lures, fishing line,
magazines and other goodies like
t-shirts and fishing towels via mail
within a few weeks.
If you plan on buying a boat
and pick the right make, you can
save $250 on gear to outfit the
vessel using one of the included
coupons.
Licenses are available at county
tax collectors' offices, license
agents, online at MyFWC.com or
over the phone at 1-888-FISH
FLORIDA. License sellers collect
fees of $2 $4.83 in addition to
the cost of the license.

Incredible

photos take

the right

photographer



PENSEE



I have a friend who takes incred-
ible pictures of nature. He seems
to have a gift for finding just the
right moment in the beauty of
God's creation to snap a shot that
takes your breath away.
Sunsets, landscapes, flowers,
animals stir the spirit within me. I
see beauty all around me, especial-
ly in the spring. I look at the red-
bud tree blooming in my yard with
its delicate purple-red flowers con-
trasted against the blue sky or
against the dark bark of the oak
behind it and long to be able to
capture it on film.
I have tried many times, but the
picture never captures the wonder
and the awe. It is an ordinary shot
inadequate to express even a por-
tion of the beauty I saw around
me. The composition is wrong, the
lighting isn't the same, and that
special "something" just isn't
there.
The secret is in the gift the abil-
ity to see the special moment and
know how to make the camera see
it too. It is the gift God uses when
He looks at us. You and I walk
around seeing people everyday.
Some of them we find intriguing
enough to photograph, but we rarely
see them in their awesome beauty.
We see the outside the earth
moments, but God sees the inside
and snaps the eternal moments of
the soul. He sees the mystery of
the creature before Him. He sees
the wonder of the shading, the
mixture of light and dark, joy and
sorrow. He views them in the per-
fect light of His Son and captures
the exact moment when the won-
der is at its fullness.
Realizing this truth could make
a difference in so many ways. It
would give a greater recognition of
God's love for us and a greater un-
derstanding of our neighbor. It
would make it possible to compre-
hend that people around us have a
special breathtaking beauty inside
even if we can't see it. It would
change the way we relate to one
another.
It takes faith to see this reality,
but no greater faith than it does to
realize people like my friend can
capture the perfect awesome beau-
ty of nature on film even if I can't.
I would be an arrogant fool to think
it doesn't exist just because I can't
portray the miracle of the redbud
tree in a photo.
The people around, including
you and I, are often waiting with-
out knowing it for someone to tru-
ly see the unique beauty inside; for.
someone who can show us what
we often can't dare to believe ex-
ists. We long for the expert photo-
grapher who can capture our mys-
terious moment and portray a
beauty that takes the breath away.
God has you in his viewfinder -
step into the light of His love and
let Him complete His miracle.

of

7/9/1944 3/14/2004
He only takes the best!
God saw that he was getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
So He put His arm around him and
whispered, "Come with Me."
With tear-filled eyes we watched
him suffer and fade away:
Although we loved him deeply, we
could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
