Saving time

with new

process may

not work

Efforts to streamline Baker
County Commission meetings
may work in one area and
backfire in another.
A new "consent agenda" is
supposed to discourage extended
discussion of items that don't
need debate. For the March 21
meeting, that might have worked
for seven of 26 items: setting a
public hearing for the April 5
meeting, closing a road that has
never been used, hiring new
workers at the road department,
approving advertisement for a
new recreation employee, ap-
pointment of a citizen to a vol-
unteer board, donation of a small
sum to another agency.
Any board member will be
able to ask for an item on the
consent section to be moved to
the regular agenda for discussion.
And it is likely that Will happen
regularly, at least until the board
gets used to the batch approval
process.
But the other innovation
March 21 is apt to take up any
time saved by a consent agenda.
This is a check register a list of
payments made the two weeks
previous to the meeting. It
brought about 15 minutes worth
of questions, most of them from
Commissioner Alex Robinson.
Among the questions:
The $390 license renewal for
Dr. K.M. Hughes to oversee nar-
cotics for rescue.
Two new cell phones, show-
ing they were purchased for
building official Bob Hathcox
and planning director Cathy Rho-
den. No-one questioned if this
was a replacement phone for Mr.
Hathcox, but Commissioner
Robinson asked why Ms. Rho-
den needs one.
"She's out in the field a lot,"
explained County Manager Jason
Griffis.
Telephone use in general,
and cell phones in particular, will
likely get more scrutiny. Long
distance bills indicate county em-
ployees are not using the special
number that eliminates separate
charges for each call. For in-
stance, one new employee .did
not realize the prefix should be
used for calls to Jacksonville and
Lake City, both of which are 25o
per call resulting in $55 worth
of charges in one month. Also,
some employees are exceeding
the monthly minutes on cell
phones, some with excessive per-
sonal calls.
Screwdrivers. "If they can't
keep up with them, get a tool
belt. We must have bought $300-
400 worth of screwdrivers and
sockets," Mr. Robinson said.
A $24.51 gas purchase by
"unknown."
A $291.99 stove for the agri-
culture center, which Manager
Griffis said is for the rental area.
$2231 to a, contractor for as-
phalt repairs in the building and
zoning department parking lot af-
ter an emergency sewer line re-
pair. No-one asked why this was
not done by the road department.
$200 a month for floor mats,
about which Commissioner
Robinson asked, "Can't anyone

FBI probes alleged police brutality

Two Baker deputies may have violated suspect's civil rights during arrest


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
The FBI is investigating two
Baker County Sheriff's deputies
for possible civil rights violations
against a Macclenny man who
claims they used excessive force
on him.
It is the only time such an in-
vestigation has targeted local law
enforcement officers, said Sheriff
Joey Dobson, who as of Tuesday
morning had yet to receive offi-
cial notification from the FBI.
Meanwhile, the sheriff's office
is conducting an internal investi-
gation into the March 19 arrest of


Michael Earl Harvey.
The deputies involved -
Charles Ross and Darrin Whitak-
er have not been suspended, al-
though Deputy Ross has been
transferred to courthouse duty, a
move that was in the works be-
fore the incident occurred.
The internal investigation,
which began March 23 and is ex-
pected to take two to three weeks,
will determine if the officers vio-
lated department policy.
Chief Gerald Gonzalez is lead-
ing the investigation.
The FBI will conduct a crimi-
nal investigation into whether the
officers violated Mr. Harvev's


civil rights.
The sheriff said the two probes
will not conflict despite the fact
That the officers are required to
answer questions for the internal
investigation.
In criminal cases, of course,
defendants have the right to re-
main silent.
The sheriff said it's his under-
standing that the FBI can't use
statements made by the officers
in the internal investigation
against them in a criminal prose-
cution.
FBI investigators will look at
the circumstances of the arrest to
determine whether the officers

One business owner


is still unwilling to


annex into Macdenny


The Baker County Commis-
sion may vote April 5 to ratify
Macclenny's plan to annex 15
properties in four enclaves creat-
ed as city limits enclosed their
land.
All but one owner has been
coaxed into dropping protest of
the annexation, after the Mac-
clenny Commission agreed to ex-
empt them from city property
taxes for five years, and a similar
time to connect to water and sew-

'Miss Fay'brought a lifetime of smiles,


teaching and music
BY BOB GERARD
Press Features


Talk to almost anyone who has lived in Baker County for more than a
decade and drop the name "Miss Fay" and the reaction will be the same -
a smile. Who could ask for a better legacy than their name causes people
to smile. Or grin. Or laugh.
"Miss Fay" Milton was gifted with producing just that response in the
people who knew her. Miss Fay, who passed away March 25 at Wells
Nursing Home after a long illness, was one of those rare people who had
the gift of touching lives.
How appropriate that Miss Fay was
born on Easter Sunday and died on
Good Friday. In between, her life was
lived with gusto and infectious energy
Fay Matthews came to Baker Coun-
ty to take a position teaching first grad-
ers. In a sense she gained as much as
she gave, because early on she met
Harold Milton. He was the superinten-
dent of schools at 24, the youngest
ever elected in Florida. Mr. Milton was
charmed by her gentleness, her wit and :.
a certain aura that have caused so many '
Baker Countians to fall under her spell.
He also discovered she was a wo-
man who knew what she wanted and
had the quiet determination to get it. It /
was a heady mixture; the two fell in
love and after a three year courtship,
were married.
Miss Fay taught youngsters to read
for 23 years in the Baker County school
system, and influenced their lives in
many other ways. She started the coun-
ty's first Girl Scout Chapter.
She retired from teaching in 1956.
Of course, that is a misleading state-
ment, because Miss Fay never stopped ,-, itv,;,,tr l, ,a,,,n


to Baker County

teaching. If teaching children to read was a first love, music was a close
second, and she discovered she could combine the two.
Soon after retiring from the school system, she opened a studio and
taught piano to generations of Baker County young people.
If you lived in Baker County between the 1950s and 1980s and learned
to play the piano, chances are you sat at the piano with Miss Fay while she
taught you the scales.
When you had learned enough to perform a few songs, you went
through her recitals. They were a first class affair. Young ladies wore long
gowns and the boys were dressed in white dinner jackets and black tie.
In those years, Miss Fay was the leading figure in Baker County in pro-
moting the arts and culture. Her stu-
dents not only learned to play the pi-
ano, but learned to love music, and to
love her. To her students, music and
Miss Fay were inseparable.
Her energy was boundless. When
she discovered that residents of local
nursing homes had little to occupy
their time, she formed "Down Memo-
ry Lane." For two decades, she en-
couraged volunteers to entertain pa-
tients with music, poetry readings,
and more importantly give time and
love to the elderly. The group would
come in each week to entertain and
raise the spirits of the residents. For
Miss Fay it was as natural as breath-
ing.
Though music made up a large
portion of her life, her interests were
broad. She was a charter member of
the Eastern Star, helped organize the
Junior Women's Club, and was a
member of the Macclenny Women's
Club for over 50 years. So respected
was she in the Women's Club, in
1999 she was chosen as the Federa-
mrsin hame for 'DownMemoryLane. (Page four please)


will also be a burden, he said, es-
pecially since he has recently im-
proved the property.
Mr. Bennett's son James ex-
plained, "We have chickens,
roosters, and the guineas squawk.
It could create complaints. Also,
we just got a new septic system,
but if we sold the business or I
take it over we'd have to con-
nect to the water and sewer."
The five year exemption laps-
es if the property is sold or if
the owner's well or septic system
fails.
The potential utility donnec-
tion would be less burden if the
city was offering an exemption to
the tap-in fee, James Bennett sug-
gested. However, the agency that
financed system improvements
does not allow that.
"This is no benefit to us, just
to the city. We feel you should
target just the problem residential
areas," he added.
The city began investigating
the enclave problem late last
summe" after neither city or
county officials could cope with
complaints of noise and loose
dogs coming from Anthony
Gray's home in the Owens Acres
subdivision. His mother, Roma
Starling, owns the home and had
never agreed to annex, so city
regulations were deemed not to
apply. But there were no county
rules that applied to the problems
cited by neighbors.
The city already knew of sev-
eral other unannexed parcels on
Golf Course Rd. off North Low-

der, and discovered another par-
cel just west of the city limits
along US 90. A fifth section bor-
dered by North Lowder and CR
23B was later found not to be a
true enclave because it had other

Macclenny officials chose to
seek joint approval from the coun-
ty for the annexation. Other alter-
natives would be voluntary annex-
ation from the affected landowners
- not likely, since none were inter-
ested and would not have agreed
without the five year concession
on taxes and utility connections;
and an involuntary process that
would have required a referendum
election.
Mayor Gary Dopson asked the
county commission to plan its vote
on the entire request rather than in-
dividual parcels. "Normally we'd
require immediate utility connec-
tions, but we made a concession
because it's a group. So we won't
do this as individual properties be-
cause we believe it would open up
trouble with the next people to an-


nex," he said.

commission:
Gave Road Superintendent
Robert Fletcher permission to ne-

will be compared to bids received

Received from Al Sandrick of
the National Weather Service a
certificate as a "Storm Ready
Community." Only 14 counties na-
tionwide have been so honored,
Mr. Sandrick said, and the desig-
nation is based on plans that have
the sheriff, rescue, fire and emer-
gency operations departments pre-
pared to work together.
Received a plaque for partici-
pation since 1989 in the Florida
Association of Counties Trust, a

$675 in towing charges for the
road department dozer truck.
"Why is that necessary with all
that equipment at the road depart-
ment?" Mr. Robinson asked. He
noted there appear to be three
charges, and asked for Manager
Griffis to check if there were three
incidents or if the county was bill-
ed triple.
"I'm glad I implemented this,
since it appears there are ques-
tions," Manager Griffis said.
Commissioners have previously
had access to the twice monthly
check register lists, but generally
have asked questions outside board
meetings.


In a final innovation, there will
be a Wednesday cutoff for items
for the following week's agenda.
The agendas then will go in the
mail by Thursday afternoon to
board members, with the full in-
formation packet still to be picked
up at the county administration
building.
Despite the cutoff, the board
will still allow citizens to speak
even if they have not asked for
agenda time. However, that likely
will remain at the end of the meet-
ing and the commission may de-
cide not to take any action until the
following meeting, so citizens are
urged to call ahead for placement
on the agenda.


Man arrested FBI investigation

in hit-and-run, .i


gets DUI, too

A Baldwin man was arrested
March 23 for driving under the in-
fluence and leaving the scene of an
accident after rear-ending a car on
US 90.
George Carter, 70, ran his truck
into the back of a truck driven by
Brian Crawford of Glen St. Mary
around 6:00 pm near Fourth Street.
At first, Mr. Crawford saw no
damage and told Mr. Carter not to
worry about it.
But then he noticed more dam-
age and tried unsuccessfully to
stop Mr. Carter from leaving.
A witness told police she saw
him even reach inside Mr. Carter's
truck and tap him on the shoulder.
Two witnesses followed Mr.
Carter to his home in Baldwin,
where a local officer met them and
drove Mr. Carter back to Baker
County.
He admitted being involved in
an accident in which nobody was
hurt.
When Deputy David Morgan
was talking to him, he noticed the
smell of alcohol and had Mr. Cart-
er perform sobriety tests, which he
failed.
Breath tests showed his blood
alcohol content to be .149 and
.146, above the legal limit of .08.


(from page one).
At one point, Mr. Harvey said,
"I'll kill you [guys]."
The deputies were able to hand-
cuff him, and he was taken to
Fraser Hospital for treatment.
At the emergency room, he con-
tinued to threaten Deputy Ross,
saying that if he couldn't get to the
officer directly, he'd go through
his kids to kill him.
Mr. Harvey, 27, was charged
with battery on a police officer, ag-
gravated assault on a police officer
and resisting arrest with violence.
All three are felonies.
FBI officials wouldn't say how
they were made aware of the inci-
dent, but Mr. Westcott said that
typically the victim or a represen-
tative reports it, or investigators
may read about it in a newspaper
article.
In fact, The Press was contacted
by an FBI investigator seeking a
copy of the article describing Mr.
Harvey's arrest.
Mr. Wcstcott would not confirm
whether that's how the agency
found out.


The sheriff's office has for-
warded a copy of the arrest report
to the FBI and, as part of its inter-
nal investigation, has subpoenaed
Mr. Harvey's medical records
from Fraser Memorial Hospital.
They have spoken to a witness
identified by Mr. Harvey, but he
apparently said he did not see the
incident once it moved outside the
bar.
Mr. Harvey, who had his first
appearance in court last week, has
cuts in his scalp that have been
closed by 20 staples, according to
Macclenny attorney Frank Mal-
oney Jr.
Mr. Maloney is representing
Mr. Harvey on the prior charges,
the ones that led to arrest warrants.
He may or may not represent
him on the latest ones.

Pea-brain muses on


big-breasted hens,


statehood for Iraq


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
!Ost1.L GERARD .,

I'm on spring break from work-
ing at the high school, which has
given me more time to focus my
pea-sized brain on larger issues,
and I believe I've come upon an
ingenious solution to the troubles
in Iraq. I think we could solve
many of the problems in Iraq if we
were to make it the 51st state.
I know what you're saying 50
is such a clean number, why dis-
turb it? Our flags would look fun-
ny with 51 stars; nothing would
match up right on that field of
blue. Besides, we don't really
know anything about Iraq. They
have a different religion, different
customs and a different language.
Really, is that any different than
say ..'. South Dakota? Do we real-
ly know anything about the land
and people of South Dakota? For
all I know, they sacrifice goats to
the graven images on Mt. Rush-
more? I've never met anyone from
Baghdad, but come to think of it,
I've never met anyone from Pierre,
South Dakota, either. I know peo-
ple who have' been to Baghdad,
but I don't know a soul who has
ever been to Pierre.
I think it's a good idea, frankly.
It all fits in with what is inscribed
on the Statue of Liberty: Give us
your tired, your poor; your hungry
longing for a Starbucks on every
comer.
I believe that is all the insurgents
are waiting for to throw down their
arms and embrace Vice President
Dick Cheney. They'just want as-
surances they can really have it
their way at the Baghdad Burger
King..,
Come on, really. What self-re-
specting Iraqi wouldn't trade the
rubble of Kirkuk for a nice, clean
outlet mall selling Adidas and
Coach luggage? In a few years,
we'll see Gap burkahs and Izod
head pieces just like in Dubai, Ku-
wait and Saudi Arabia.
I bet Bono of U2 could even be
persuaded to be at the opening of
the Hard Rock Caf6 Fallujah. It's a
win-win situation. We get peace
and stability, they get Arab-Ameri-
can Idol.
Granted, there is a downside.
Puerto Rico, which has been lob-
bying for statehood for forty years,
is bound to be a little ticked off.
But I'm sure Secretary of State
Rice will be able to reason with
them and assure them that when
oil is discovered outside of San
Juan, they will be the next ones to
get a star.
True, it might send, a negative
message to other under-developed
countries wanting to achieve state-
hood: if you detonate some car
bombs, you might be on the fast
track to statehood. But realistically,
places like Albania and Chad are
in the same boat as Puerto Rico.
Don't think I.spend my free time
dwelling on just foreign policy
matters. Oh, no, I also am con-
cerned with the more mundane.
Ever since reading an article in the
National Geographic, my thoughts

have turned to the lowly chicken
and its connection to former Play-
boy model Pamela Sue Anderson.
The latest Geographic, which it
is my habit to peruse while in my
porcelain reading room, contained
an article on the development of
the chicken as a staple of the Amer-
ican diet. There are some smart
folks down at the National Geo.
The article claims it is only
since World War II that the chick-
en has become the number one
meat on the world's table. Before
the war, chicken was pretty expen-
sive. When Cal Cooledge called
for a "chicken in every pot," it
would have been the equivalent of
today calling for a sirloin on every
stove pretty pricey.
After the war; scientists found a
way to create cheap hybrid corn,
and the number of chickens in-
creased 100 fold. That surprised
me. So did another interesting
item. Americans, it seems, like
chickens with big breasts. Who
knew?
In the 1980s, only 10% of a
chicken's body weight was breast
meat. In the '90s, that rose to 21%
and is still climbing. By the end of
the decade, it could be 30%. What
has caused this drastic increase in
the size of chicken breasts? I think
I know.
Baywatch.
That's right. The popular '90s
beach show that featured buxom
babes like Pamela Sue Anderson
and Gena Lee Nolan cavorting
around in bikinis had a direct in-
fluence on hens. I'm convinced of
it.
Some chicken farmer watching
Anderson and Nolan running
down the beach to give mouth-to-
mouth to some lucky swimmer
caught in an undertow suddenly
got the bright idea. "Hey Vern,
what if our chickens had more
breast meat?"
So next time you batter up a big
old chicken breast and throw it in-
to the deep fryer, say a silent thank
you to Pamela and Gena and the
Baywatch girls. Without them,
you'd be gnawing on some scraw-
ny chicken leg and wondering
what might have been.
Excuse me. I have to go con-
template the relationship between
a Nehi peach soft drink and rocket
fuel.

Another dirty deal on dirt road


leaves family trapped in yard


ON THE

RECORD
NANCY SZANTO
A ban on new dirt roads will be
approved by the Baker County
Commission next week but it
will be too late to protect a woman
who called The Press this week.
Wendy Simmons hoped we
could tell her who to call to get her
road graded. Instead, she learned
she was a victim of an old ploy a
lot seller's claim the road would
be maintained by the county.
Actually, Ms. Simmons said, lot
seller Bill Dyer told her the "city"
would take care of grading and
other repairs to Remington Road -
which is.ab6ut thre'e"itles west of
Glen St. Mary.
"I'm hopping mad that he would
tell us that. It was the second or
third question we asked when we
were looking at the property. We
absolutely would not have bought
if we'd known the road was not
going to be maintained. We knew
we couldn't take care of a dirt
road," Ms. Simmons said.
Now she's surrounded by signs
indicating plans by Mr. Dyer and
relatives to rezone four 2'/2 acre
lots. The public hearings are sched-
uled for the April 5 meeting of the
Baker County Commission.
Ms. Simmons is undecided
whether the rezonings would be
good or bad.
On the one hand, marketing of
the lots likely means the Dyers
will have to improve the road just
to get prospective buyers in, much
less impress them to buy. And ev-.
en if she is still the victim of a
"homeowner association road,"
there would then be neighbors
with whom to share the cost of hir-
ing a private grader operator.
But she is also angry enough
not to want to see the Dyers profit
from any more people like her.
"If it weren't for this, I'd be
very happy. I like the property, I
like the people, I like Baker Coun-
ty. -I wish he'd just do the right'
thing for people who Want to make
a home out here," Ms. Simmons
laments.

True to a mid 1980s decision
not to accept any more dirt roads,
the county will never put a road
grader on the road, even if it wash-
es out completely.
That is very nearly the case
right now, Ms. Simmons said. Her
daughter has missed six days from
school because the family was
trapped on its five acre lot. Her car
sits in her yard, unable to traverse
the dips and mud even on a for-
merly chained service road that
has replaced Remington as their
only access.
She had to borrow an SUV
from her sister even to use that
road, which also needs grading
and repairs. Ms. Simmons is un-
sure if the service'road belongs to
the county.
"There's a washout, a big huge
'dip at the end of Remington, just
totally washed out. The electric
company people can't even get in
to read the meter they sent me an
estimated bill this month.
"The fire department couldn't
get in here at all if we had a fire,

and that scares me," she said.
The new ban on any new dirt
roads came because homeowner
associations don't work. Although
the wording is likely buried in
their deeds, many buyers don't re-
alize the road will be their respon-
sibility until the developer gets rid
of most of the lots and disap-
pears.
If someone doesn't step forward
to collect "dues" and arrange for
grading, sometimes ditch cleaning
and other maintenance, the road
falls into disrepair and the com-
plaints start: to the road depart-
ment, to the commission. To no
avail, because doing for one road
would open the county to doing
for all.
Meanwhile, Ms. Simmons may
have to file a civil lawsuit if she
wants any relief from Mr. Dyer -
something she doesn't want to do.
"I just wish he'd do the right thing,"
she said again.
His and other developers failure
to "do the right thing" is the reason
the county has to enact the new
law.

Concerned

about area's

growth rate
Dear Editor:
Am I the only resident of Baker
County concerned over the explo-
sive growth rate and excessive
building going on? It seems if
there is a quarter acre of undevel-
oped land anywhere, someone
tries to build a subdivision on it.
Is it just greed or has any
thought been put to'this? An exam-
ple is Lowder St. just south of US
90. What used to be a pasture and
driving range has been cleared and
someone is getting ready to jam
houses in an area the road obvi-
ously can't support.
Some people move here to get
away from the hustle and bustle of
city life. But once there are build-
ings on every lot, those people will
be right back in the middle of what
they were trying to escape.
Where does that leave life-long
residents of Macclenny? We will
be stuck in the mess a group of de-
velopers call "progress."
Is progress going to fix roads,
put in sidewalks, take care of the
extra burden on city facilities?
Anyone who enjoys the local
golf course can kiss it goodbye al-
so. A subdivision is set to build
there instead.
Perhaps a moratorium on build-
ing should be put in place and a
little more thought given to the
way of life we have grown up
with. I'm not saying no-one should
be able to build in Macclenny -
but how about having city plan-
nets sit down and actually do some
planning?

Baker County a richer place

because of Miss Fay's legacy


(from page one)
tion of Women's Club Woman of
Achievement in honor of her years
of service in Baker County.
That should have been enough
for anyone, but not Miss Fay. She
was instrumental in lobbying the
legislature for a Retired Educators'
Day. Not even the governor could
say no to Miss Fay, and in 1981 he
proclaimed Retired Educator's
Day for the third Sunday in No-
vember.
She wrote newspaper columns,
composed songs, and started a Ce-
lebrity Book Shelf in the library
where state and national leaders
sent autographed books. Reuben
Askew, Leroy Collins and Spes-
sard Holland were among many
state and national leaders who do-
nated books.
She impacted the lives of count-
less Baker Countians who remem-
ber her with a smile and story.
Lucy Dinkins recalls that she
was only 13 when she met Miss
Fay. "I was in the eighth grade
when she started teaching. We
gathered in an assembly and she
started singing, and I loved her
from then on.
"She was the reason I started
teaching," Dinkins continues.
"When someone asked me what I
wanted to do, I said 'I want to be a
first grade teacher like Miss Fay.'"
She got her wish.
Later, when the pair were teach-
ing together, Miss Fay finished out
one-half of the year while Mrs.
Dinkins had a baby then Mrs.
Dinkins finished the second half
for Miss Fay so she could -have a
baby.
Mrs. Dinkins wasn't the only
person who saw Miss Fay as a role
model.
"She was always so organized
and could get people to do any-
thing," says Fay Davis. "In a way I
patterned the way I try to organize
things on her."
As a sidelight, she noted, "Miss
Fay was my husband Dickie's first
grade teacher."
Ms. Davis recalls what a won-
derful couple the Miltons were, and
how 'utterly happy they were to-
gether.
"They were the ideal Christian
couple. They always had a smile
on their faces."
The Miltons helped found the
Church of Christ, and church song
leader Denny Wells credits her
with much of his love of music.
She taught him piano at her home,
and even arranged odd practice
hours to fit into his schedule.
"My grandmother told me I
couldn't play on the basketball
team because I had to take my pi-
ano lessons. When Miss Fay heard
that, she arranged for me to take
piano at 6:30 in' the morning so I
could be on the team. She would
even have breakfast for me on
most mornings."
Mr. Wells got to play on the
team. As a matter of fact he was
on the 1966 state championship
'team. His love of music later took
him to a music degree at,the Uni-
versity of Florida and a job as BC-
HS band director.
Even in her last few years, she
loved to play the piano. Gedone
Prachar tells of how each year the
Raulerson family gets together for
Christmas caroling.
"The year before last, we went
to Miss Fay's house and started
caroling, and she came to the door
and had us all come in. She sat at
the piano and led us in carols. She
loved a party."
She certainly did. My personal

favorite Miss Fay story was ring-
ing in the millennium with her
daughter Fay Sinclair and the
whole family. We had a pleasant
dinner and conversation.
Over in the corer stood a piano
and Miss Fay kept cutting a glance
at it. After dinner, she could stand
it no longer. She sat down at the
piano and instructed all of us to
form a line. You have to under-
stand there were forty people there
of all ages.
"It's time for the grand march,"
she informed us. For the next fif-
teen minutes, we all conga-lined
throughout the Sinclair house
while Miss Fay played the piano
and sang. After that she led us in
AuldLang Syne.
Not a soul refused. It was un-
thinkable to say no to Miss Fay. Of
all the stories people have told me
about Miss Fay, that is a recurring
theme. You didn't say no to Miss
,Fay.
That's why my favorite tidbit
comes from her granddaughter
Mandy. Mandy told me exactly
why she can smile even though
Miss Fay has passed on.
"When she got to Heaven, she
went to whoever was playing the
piano and said, 'Thank you, honey,
for keeping the seat warm, but I'm
here now."
You can bet they didn't say no.


Police arrested a man who
punched his ex-girlfriend in the
face, then spit on her and pulled
her hair during an argument March
24 on Spence Road in Macclenny.
Mark Cutsinger, 33, who did

charged with battery.
Deputy Darrin Whitaker arrived
at 1:47 am to find the woman with
cuts and swelling on her face.
Mr. Cutsinger had disabled her
car and run away, saying he would
be back to get her.

Man, student arrested in

separate marijuana busts


Police checking on a suspicious
vehicle March 25 arrested a Mac-
clenny man for misdemeanor pos-
session of marijuana.
Deputy Erik Deloach approach-
ed the car around 10:20 pm after
iob'ticing it parked at the dead end
of Largo Lane in Macclenny.
He smelled the odor of marijua-
na as he got near the car.
When asked if he had any
drugs, Mr. Mitchell pulled a bag-
gie out of his jacket pocket and
handed it to the officer.
In other marijuana cases, police
arrested 15-year-old Sanderson
boy and filed charges with the
state attorney against a 14-year-old
Glen St. Mary boy for misdemean-
or possession.
Deputy Alison Tomlinson was
called to Baker County Alternative

Throughout her 10 month term
as Council on Aging director, Ton-
nie Blakely has been creating a list
of needs at the Senior Center on
West Macclenny Avenue.
But it is only now, as she leaves
that position to become volunteer
coordinator, that she expects to to
see some of her dreams come true.
It has been much more than a
full time job just to keep the doors
open since she took over last June.
Ms. Blakely had to deal with a
mushrooming financial crisis.

Ms. Blakely could breathe a bit
easier as the Baker County and
Macclenny commissions agreed to
add more money to their usual
contributions to carry the aging
council through the remainder of
the fiscal year. She has also repair-
ed relationships with the Area
Agency on Aging and the Florida
Department of Transportation.
The hiring two weeks ago of
new CoA director Mary Baxla, a
former Area Agency on Aging ad-
ministrator who will require little
training, frees Ms. Blakely to
move quickly into activating her
list of volunteer services. Here are
the ones she had as of March 22:
More volunteer drivers to de-
liver meals.
Donated carpet and installa-
tion.to recover the stairs.

Donated fabric and labor to re-

suspected students when they
found a baggie containing marijua-
na in the 15-year-old's shoe.
Further investigation, however,
revealed that it was the 14-year-
old who'd been showing off his
drugs to other students.
He said he was holding the
drugs, which included marijuana
and prescription pills, for someone
else, but would not identify the
other person.
Police filed an aggravated bat-
tery complaint March 24 against a
Macclenny woman who they say
beat her daughter with a portable
radio and an iron.
Deputy Jeffrey Dawson met the
girl at the emergency room around
11:30 pm.
A woman who lives with the
mother and daughter on South
Ninth Street took the girl to the
hospital.
The girl said her mother came
into her bedroom and began yell-
ing at her, saying at one point, "So
you think you can whoop me?"
The woman grabbed her by the
arms and began pushing her back
onto the bed, but the girl was able
to get free.
Her mother, however, picked up

Sibling rivalry ends in arrest


A Glen St. Mary woman was
arrested for disorderly intoxication
March 22 after causing a distur-
bance and cursing police officers
outside Mac's Liquors.
Shauna Calloway, 36, was argu-
ing with a woman she said was her
sister outside the bar on US 90
around 5:30 pm.
Deputy James Nickles pulled
into the parking lot after seeing
traffic slowing in reaction to the
disturbance near the highway.
He asked Ms. Calloway if they
were fighting, to which she replied
she could talk to her sister "any-
way that I [freakin'] want to."
Patrons of the bar began com-
ing outside to check out the com-
motion.
Ms. Calloway continued to
shout profanity, then turned toward
the officer and grabbed him by the
arm, apparently to steady herself.
When Dep. Nickles told her to
let go, she replied, "You're an
[buttocks]hole."
Ms. Calloway was arrested after
refusing to calm down.
While being driven to jail by
Deputy Jimmy Stalnaker, she said
police officers were "pieces of
[defecation]," and then suggested
repeatedly and belligerently that the
deputy perform a sex act on her.
Elsewhere on the Mac's Liq-
uors scene, Randall Warner, 20, of
Glen St. Mary, was arrested for
trespassing when he went back in-


to the bar after Dep. Nickles told
him not to.
The officer, while speaking with
a pedestrian, noticed Mr. Warner
re-entering the bar just a few min-
utes after being warned.
As Dep. Nickles was handcuff-
ing him, he tried to pull away, but
the officer "grasped Warner around
the upper torso and relocated him
onto the pool table where he was
handcuffed without further inci-
dent."

Instead, the USDA's new Tobacco Transition Payment Program will provide,
money toeligible tobacco quota holders and producers to help in this transi-
tion that ends the old system. But sign up now or you will not get a 2005 payment.


) Did you own a farm as of October 22, 2004, with a 2004 basic
marketing quota?

) Are you an owner, operator, landlord, tenant, or sharecropper who
shared in the risk of producing tobacco anytime between 2002 and
2004?

) Do you grow Flue-cured, Burley, Fire-cured, Dark air-cured, Virginia
sun-cured, or Cigar filler/binder tobacco?


Please sign up between March 14, 2005, and June 17, 2005,

Courthouse flooding

solved by special caulk?


A special caulking along the
edges of the courthouse basement
floor along with extra exterior
drains seem to have remedied
flooding that was a chronic prob-
lem for more than a year after the
building was occupied.
"The basement seems to be at
least temporarily okay as of last
week. It's been mostly dry except
a little bit during Hurricane Jeanne,"
Clerk of Courts Al Fraser told the
county's Building and Facilities
Committee March 17.
Mr. Fraser said he had been,
skeptical about the basement even
as the new half of the building was
built.
"You know they laid some
bricks on the outside, then they put
in three foot sheets of plastic be-
fore they poured the floor. I ques-
tioned that even then," he said.
Several earlier remedies for the
flooding had included drilling holes
along the west edges of the floor,
refilling them with a caulk materi-
al. Still, the basement flooded with
even light rain.
Last August and September -
just ahead of the series of hurri-
canes the floor was scraped out
all along the edges at the walls,
down about an inch and refilled
with caulk.
Mr. Fraser noted an underdrain
installed by the county road de-
partment in a flower bed may also
have helped. As County Manager
Jason Griffis noted, there is little
natural drainage on the west side
of the courthouse.
"There is gumbo clay under that
parking lot, and that stuff doesn't
percolate. They should have un-
dercut it three feet and filled," Mr.
Griffis explained. There are cracks
in the driveway pavement through
which water bubbles to the sur-
face.
One remedy may, be to install
underdrains there as well whenev-
er the county decides to repave the
parking lot and driveway.
A third problem area has been
air conditioners, with a series of
malfunctions: 'imptlopertly- installed
condensers that made the .units:,
freeze, then flood as they defrost-
ed; a possible miscalculation on
the size unit needed for some spac-
es; no training on how to set the
controls.
Weather may not cooperate to
test the latest remedies in time for
the two year deadline to seek cor-
rections from contract manager
Auchter Company of Jacksonville,
Mr. Fraser noted.
"The heat cycle works good,
and we only have problems with
the air conditioning in the summer.
It worked on and off toward the
end of last summer. So we may
not know for sure until July or Au-
gust," he explained.
However, committee member
Bobby Hancock noted consultant
Bill Bishop informed, him the
county can identify a problem and
notify Auchter before the time lim-
it. "He said tell them, 'We hope
you get it fixed (before the dead-
line), but if not....'"
Manager Griffis said it has been
difficult to pinpoint the cause of
condenser freezing.
"Trane [the manufacturer]
blames the contractor and vice
versa," he said. Trane also has a
maintenance contract on the units.


"I believe it's in the controls,
because one time we came in and
it was 60 in there so the capaci-
ty is there. I just wish there was a
thermostat on the wall like be-
fore," Clerk Fraser said.
The controls are in a large array
in the basement.
Another chronic issue being re-
addressed is the two flat roofs over
the east and west entrances. They
are being re-tarred after water leaks
damaged walls and equipment in
downstairs offices.
As for future courthouse issues,
the committee was told it will
mostly be a space issue as increas-
ing crime boosts the need for addi-
tional prosecutors and public de-
fenders. Both offices now have
three attorneys, where only a few
years ago each had only one.
New felony cases are up about
30% from last year's 300, Clerk
Fraser said. He expects his large
room covering most of the new
half of the downstairs will suffice
for additional deputy clerks for
some time, but that other offices
may have to be housed in satellite
buildings.
He would like to begin scanning
archived documents into computer
files, but does not have the time or
salary money for the indexing pro-
cess that would make the data ac-
cessible. So storage remains a prob-
lem especially since this can not
be in the basement because of the
possible flooding.
The committee will continue to
work toward a preliminary report
on building and facility needs to
the Baker County Commission in
mid April. A report is expected at
the next committee meeting from
Sheriff Joey Dobson on how
Glades County is handling board-
ing for federal and immigration
.prisoners.

Dealer nabbed P,,n nrh tn Iir


in drug sting
A Jacksonville drug dealer who
made deliveries to clients in Baker
County was arrested March 23 dur-.
ing a drug deal pet up by police.
Ricardo "Dread" Higgins, 35,
was charged with possession and
sale of cocaine.
A confidential source told po-
lice that he/she had purchased
coke from Mr. Higgins in the past,
and he would deliver the drugs.
Police had the source call Mr.
Higgins and ask for a "yard,"
which is street language for $100
worth of powder cocaine. Mr. Hig-
gins also charged $20 for delivery.
They arranged to meet at a loca-
tion, but when Mr. Higgins arriv-
ed, he said he didn't like the spot,
so they met at the Country Federal
Credit Union across from a conve-
nience store.
After they did the deal, police ar-
rested Mr. Higgins while the confi-
dential source turned over the co-
caine and front money to Investi-
gator Scotty Rhoden.

God called you home to a land far

As you march with all the others

We thank You, dear Lord, for mak-
ing this choice.
Ted, you always had a sweet smile

A friend to all, no matter what race.
You did those favors that could
mean so much.
To the old and young, it was a kind,
gentle touch.
We miss you so much and will love
you forever,

The Christians' most important
week has just passed. Known as
Holy Week, it is the commemora-
tion of Jesus' last days as a man on
earth.
The story is recorded in detail
in the Bible and includes betrayal,
denial, loneliness, agonizing grief,
fear, deep darkness, evil, politics,
injustice, torture, and death; but it
also includes forgiveness, commu-
nion with the Almighty, comfort,
peace, sunrise, a new kingdom, ec-
static joy and abundant life. In
short, the essence of our human
emotion is wrapped up in the final
days of Jesus' earthly life and His
resurrection.
There is absolute power in the
words detailing this week. Every
gospel writer recorded it, and the
accounts can be found in Matthew
21-28, Mark 11-16, Luke 19:28-
24:53, and John 12-21. Though
this was one week in the three year
ministry of Jesus, almost all of the
respective accounts were devoted
to it. It is such an incredible mes-
sage.
The last days of Jesus' earthly
life clearly show life overcoming
death even in incredibly evil and
cruel circumstances. In our culture
where the concept of life is debat-
ed and stories like Jessica Luns-
ford, Terri Schiavo, Minnesota In-
dian Reservation children and Is-
lamic beheadings claim the head-
lines, we need to realize evil is
daily overcome by God and death

is only a doorway to the greatest
form of life. The Holy Week-East-
er message makes this clear.
There is also the message of
forgiveness. At the heart and soul
of the Christian faith is the. recon-
ciliation of the human being to Al-
mighty Creator through the death
of Jesus on the cross.
It is an indescribable miracle that
every past, present and future sin
you and I have or will commit was
placed upon Jesus, and the penalty
paid by him in our stead. Jesus'
agony in those last hours of his life
shows the seriousness with which
God views sin.
Our world has trivialized the
whole concept and become blind-
ed to the heartbreak and destruction
caused by breaking the Ten Com-
mandments. God has not, and from
the very beginning pronounced the
death sentence for those choosing
to disobey them.
Jesus took our place, and while
in the middle of horrendous suffer-
ing, prayed God to forgive even
those inflicting the horror upon
him. The tremendous love of God
is graphically displayed in a few
short words: "Father forgive them
for they know not what they do."
(Luke 23:34) Forgiveness is the
one thing that sets us free. We are
forever bound to the sins we have
committed until forgiveness unties
the knots.
The end of the story isn't death
and suffering-it is instead a mes-
sage of abundant life. Life so free-
ing, time and space are no longer
obstacles. Life so energized, there
is no longer need for food.
The Bible shouts to the world:
death has lost its power through
Jesus, and life such as we have
never known is available through
acceptance of this reality.

Pitcher Ashley Norman fields a bunt and throws to shortstop Brooke Arzie covering third, but the baserunner gets in ahead of the tag.


Lady Cats lose closely fought


game to Clay in instant classic'


In a taut, playoff-caliber game,
the Lady Wildcats lost 2-1 to dis-
trict power Clay County March 24
at the Baker High field.
Although the Cats outhit and
outpitched the visitors, they fell
victim to their own mistakes, in-
cluding seven errors, two wild
pitches and a hit batter.
,Pitcher Ashley Norman regain-
ed her dominating form after a cou-
ple of mediocre games following
her return from a back injury.
She allowed just two singles,
both in the second inning, and
struck out seven while walking
none.
However, she hit the game's
leadoff batter, which led to Clay's
first run. An error and a fielder's
;l choice loaded the bases with no
outs, but Norman struck out the
next two batters.
She then got Clay''s pitcher to.
hit a dribbler to the right side of
the infield, but the second base-
man was unable to field it cleanly,
allowing an unearned run to score.
Norman struck out the next bat-
ter to end the inning.
The Cats squandered Norman's
lead-off single in the bottom of the
first, eventually leaving a runner
stranded at second.
In the top of the second, the Blue
Devils got two hits, but it was a
pair of wild pitches that set up their
run.
After the lead-off hitter singled,
Norman uncorked a couple of wild
ones past. catcher Jessica Jenkins,
moving the runner to third. She
then scored on a on'e-out hit.
Clay threatened only once after
the second, getting a runner to third
with one out in the sixth.
The Cats tallied their lone run
in the bottom of the third.
Brooke Arzie singled with one
out and was sacrificed td second by
Norman.
Bradley followed with an RBI
single.
The Cats got single baserunners
in the sixth a two-out single by
Shannon Nickels and in the sev-
enth, Ashley Steele was hit by a
pitch with one out but were un-
able to take advantage of the op-


portunities.
The loss dropped the team's rec-
ord to 6-7 overall, 0-4 in district.
The game was the first of four
straight against district opponents,
with the tournament less than a
month away.
Throughout the season, the
Wildcats have hovered around the
.500 mark, never going more than
one game above or below.
Heading into the home stretch
of its schedule, the team has gotten
good pitching from Norman, who
has an ERA of 1.32 and has 63
strikeouts in 69 innings. She has
held opposing hitters to an on-base
average of .188. By comparison,


Cats hitters are at .307.
Nickels leads the Cats in hitting
with a .375 average. Bradley, at
.359, is the only other player bat-
ting over .300. She also leads the
team with six RBIs.
The team is batting .221 collec-
tively, and has scored 56 runs,
about 4.3 per game.
They've. also committed 56 er-
rors.

copal, April 7 at Clay, and April 9

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD


I'm having a hard time catching
my breath after last weekend's
cliffhanging Elite Eight edition of
the NCAA basketball tournament.
I can't remember there ever being
four more exciting games in a sin-
gle tournament weekend.
I pity anyone who missed last
weekend's action comebacks,
collapses, overtimes, outstanding
individual and team performances,
and gut-wrenching finishes to de-
cide who would take the trip to St.
Louis for next weekend's deciding
matches.
The NCAA basketball tourna-
ment is said to be the ultimate re-
port card of how good a team, or
even a conference, actually is.
Judging the teams that make it into
the Elite Eight, and especially the
Final Four, is a way of determin-
ing strength.
To a degree, I think that is true.
But there are other factors as well.
Luck and seeding play into suc-
cess, as does how well the team is
prepared fundamentally.


A team like Louisville is in the
Final Four because coach Rick Pi-
tino has them so drilled in the fun-
damentals, they have developed a
winning attitude and the technique
that pulls them through in close
games.
Certainly that was the case with
the team they beat, West Virginia.
The Mountaineers came through
by being well-coached and having
a tremendous determination. They
met more talented teams and pre-
vailed. Unfortunately for them,
they ran into an equally disciplined
team in Louisville.
If the conventional wisdom says
that success in the tournament
shows the strength of the confer-
ence, the most dominating confer-
ence has been the much-maligned
Big Ten, which has Illinois and
Michigan State in the Final Four
and had Wisconsin in the Elite
Eight. Iowa and Minnesota were
eliminated in the first round.
The losers among the top con-
ferences would be the Big East


and Big 12, which each sent six
teams to the tournament and the
SEC, which had five.
West Virginia was the only Big
East team to make it to the Elite
Eight, while Syracuse and Pitts-
burgh fell in the first round. De-
fending champion Connecticut
made it only to the second round,
as did Boston College. Villanova
made the Sweet Sixteen.
From the Big 12, only Texas
Tech made it to the Sweet Sixteen,
.while Kansas was shocked by
Bucknell in the first round. Texas
also fell in the first. Oklahoma,
Oklahoma State and Iowa State
were eliminated in the second.
Kentucky was the only SEC
team to reach the Elite Eight. Ala-
bama and LSU failed to make it
past the first round, while Florida
and Mississippi State were beaten
in the second.
