Most of a nearly three hour Mac-
clenny Commission meeting Tues-
day evening was devoted to growth
issues, ranging from how to control
it to how to pay for it.
Among control actions are major
revisions to the tree and landscape
ordinance. More stringent require-
'ments include at least two trees -
one shade and one flowering per
6000 square foot lot.
The ordinance even stipulates
where trees will be placed, one
each in the front and back yards. In
the past, contractors have oiftn left
two trees together in a corner of the
lot to satisfy the code, allowing
more freedom to move heavy
equipment around during construc-
Some trees will be prohibited,
others encouraged. Pines remain on
the latter list, although homeowners
sometimes dislike the accumulation
of needles and cones, and they are
not true shade or flowering trees.
There are rules if a homeowner
wants to take down a tree: a permit
must be issued, and mitigation with
replacement trees is required.
The tree and landscape commit-
tee will continue to rule on such
permit applications, and may also
hold hearings on violators. Mem-
bers are chairman Gary Fraser, a
plant nursery owner, plant store
owner Gina Gatlin, irrigation con-
tractor Mike Anderson, heating and
air conditioning contractor Oscar
Gray, teacher Veda Dopson. Non-
voting committee members are City

For many people, Alan "Pete" Harvey was
Baker County. Pete Harvey extolled all the
virtues that many have come to expect in a
true son of Baker County. He was hard work-
ing, he laughed easily,.he was a man of his
word, he was a man to whom honor and trust-
worthiness was like a second skin.
When he died April 6 at age 77, Mr. Harvey
had accomplished as much, if not more, than
any man should expect at his age. But that was
not the kind of person he was. Pete Harvey
was a man who always rose above expecta-
He was an educator, a political figure who
helped lead Baker County during a very diffi-
cult time, and a family man. He was one of the
most influential mern in this county's educa-
tional history.
Mr. Harvey was born into a Baker County
that looked much different than it does today.
It was a rural area that expected its sons and
daughters to grow up, get a job, work hard,
and start a family. Mr. Harvey was willing to
do all that, but also wanted more.

Dwayne Adam Mitchell came
home Monday evening around
6:30 to find a news photographer
walking down his drive-
With a slightly puz-
zled look, he greeted
the stranger with a cor-
dial "How ya doin?"
He continued to the
top of his driveway and
parked next to his neat,
well-kept white double-

pered up to welcome
him home.
Also there to greet

Sexual predator,



sion is not needed.
In addition to Mr. Mitchell,
there are 40 sexual offenders liv-
ing in Baker County. (See page
six for their names and addr`Ess-
es.) .
An offender is someone who
has been convicted of a sexual
crime, such as committing lewd/-
lascivious acts, procuring a per-
son under 18 for prostitution or

Unlike the photographer's
presence, he knew why the law
enforcement people were there.
Mr. Mitchell is Baker County's
only registered sexual predator.
Because he is un-
der supervision by the
DOC he is subject to
random, unannounced
visits, and must allow
officers unfettered ac-
cess to his Sanderson
home whenever they
show up.
SMr. Mitchell de-
clined a request by
The Press to photo-
graph or interview
him as he:spoke to the
officers at his home

The only thing he
said was, "I'm not bothering any-
one... no one is bothering me."

cities were still radioactive
and the Army didn't know a
lot about what effects the new
weapons had on people. All
the soldiers going into the hot
zone knew was that they were
risking their lives to give the
people who still lived in the
cities some hope for a better
and more normal life.
That Pete Harvey would be
doing this kind of work is not
surprising. He believed in ser-
vice to his community and his
fellow man, and if one looks
back at his life, it flowered Alan
with public service.
After his Army service, he went on to the
University of Florida to study agriculture. His
time in Gainesville cemented him as a lifelong
Gator. With his degree in hand, he came back to

property. Because the road is a

to 1964. It was a time when an advanced de-
gree was a rarity in the' county,
and Mr. Harvey went back to
UF at nights and during the
Summer months to get a Mas-
ter's of Arts in 1956.
For his lifelong service to
the educational community,
Pete Harvey was inducted into
the Baker County Education
Wall of Fame, an honor that
has few recipients.
He joined the Macclenny
Lions Club in 1956 and was
active in the service organiza-
tion for the rest of his life. It
was a responsibility he took
very seriously. ,
In 1964, Mr. Harvey re-
signed from his teaching posi-
tion to run for superintendent
SHarvey of schools. He served for eight
years and served during what was a particu-
larly difficult time, the transition from segre-
gated to integrated schools. But the county was

The tellers described the rob-
bers as black males around six
feet in height. Their faces were
obscured by either bandannas or
dark shirts. Both brandished what
appeared to be steel-plated or sil-
ver automatic pistols.
"They said they heard a noise
that sounded like thundering
horses as the men ran up a handi-
capped ramp in front of the trail-
er, and the first one in damaged a
half-door or gate jumping over it
to get behind the counter," said
Lt. Chuck Brannan, chief investi-
gator for the sheriff's department.
The intruder grabbed one of
the tellers who was attempting to
exit a rear door and pushed her
back inside, ordering all three to
the floor.

to live and see their kids again,
they'd cooperate and give them

Citizens in Baker County and
around Florida have become
more focused on the issue of
sexual offenders in their com-
munities in wake of the recent
abduction and murder of a 9-
, year-old girl by a convicted sex-

they left behind, and it, too, was
sent away for analysis.
While some deputies raced
toward Interstate 10 to the south to
cover both east and west of Glen,
others were dispatched to the
Country Federal main branch on
South 6th in Macclenny, and to
nearby SouthTrust, Mercantile
Bank and Vystar Credit Union.
An abandoned vehicle on the
eastbound on ramp to 1-10 at Glen
was scrutinized until authorities
learned it had been there some
time, and a canine team from
Baker Correctional scoured the
area around the credit union and
where the clothing was found.
No scents indicated fleeing per-
sons were detected.
One of the tellers described the
getaway vehicle as a "box-type
car" charcoal grey in color. She
caught only a glimpse of the vehi-
cle's hood area through the blinds
at the credit union.
Lt. Brannen said Jacksonville
robbery detectives were unable to
match-up the partial description of
the suspects and their method of
entering and robbing the location
with any recent incidents.
By 11:00 am, all area counties
were advised with the sketchy
description of suspects and vehi-
cles, and came up empty. Auth-
orities are near-certain the pair fled
on the interstate shortly after they
were spotted by the nursery work-
men who were planting trees.
Country Federal is housed in a
trailer as temporary quarters on the
south side of 90 at the east Glen
limits. The locally owned credit
union plans eventually to construct
its main branch and an office com-
plex directly south of the trailer.

Staid golf


need a bit

of pizzazz



I think it's fascinating the media
is making so much of the suppos-
ed rift among three of the top four
pro golfers. It is yet another attempt
to make something out of nothing.
The rift reportedly started when
Vijah Singh commented that Phil
Mickelson's metal cleats were
chewing up the golf course at Au-
gusta during last weekend's Mas-
ters. Mickelson and Singh suppos-
edly had heated words about the
Mickelson has also had words
in the past with Tiger Woods, who
last weekend tied Arnold Palmer's
record four Masters wins. Mickel-,
son claimed Woods was playing
with inferior Nike products. The
jab is ironic, since Woods' win to-
tal far outstrips fMickelson's.
Only Ernie Els remains above
the controversy. The South African
seems to be friends with everyone
on the tour.
What fun is that? Els needs to
get with the program. Think of
how the ratings for the PGA wouldd
shoot through the ceiling if these
guys would only milk this rivalry
thing. 1 can see it now.
"This is Pat Summerall wel-
coming you to the Battle of the,
SPGA Stars. Golf's FantasticFour,
Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Vi-
jah Singh and Ernie Els battle in
an all new golfing format. To in-
troduce this new. format, here is
commentator Jim Nantz."
"Thanks. Pat. As you know, the
Fantastic Four might also be called
the Feuding Four, and CBS has
taken their natural animosity and
tailored a whole new tournament
"Not only will the golfers play
18 holes on the treacherous Pebble
Beach course, but each golfer has
installed his own special hazards
on selected holes. None of the oth-
er.golfers knowt about these spe-
cial hazards.'"
"That's exciting, Jim. Especial-
ly since Vijah Singh is approach-
ing the third hole hazard that was
installed by Tiger Woods. Singh
approaches the ball, He gets read\
to swing. Oh my, Woods sneezed
just as Singh took the shot. He
shanked it toward,the water haz-
ard. That's playing right into Ti-
ger's hands."
'"Yes, Pat, the ball has rolled just
this side of the water hazard. Singh
approaches the ball. I can't see
what kind of club he's using, per-
haps a pitching wedge wait. Oh
no, what is that! Something has
wrapped tentacles around Singh
and is pulling him into the water!
It's a giant.squid! That must-have
been why Woods was out-on three
most of last night. He was putting
a giant squid in the water in hopes
Singh would shank the ball.
"Singh is fighting back with his
pitching wedge, but he really
needs a metal driver if he is to take

ing wedge and it let loose of his
leg. I'll tell you, Pat, that's vhvy Vi-

fifth hole and Lanimie Wadkins."
"Thank you. Jim. Etnie Els has

landed in the bunker approximarte-
ly 65 yards off the green. It \ ill be

really is a sand trap; The sand has

ere are only loser in the 'drug game
C. C ..' '

Dear Editor:
Have you e~ er played a game
where there are no rules or win-.
ners-only losers?
There's a game a lot of people
are pla ing without anv knowl-
edge of the consequences of their
involvement. and the outcome is
prison or death, or for the lucky
ones, the ability to quit.
The "drug game" is built to
destroy family lives, communities
and anything that gets in the way.
The risk of getting involved isn't
worth the outcome for either the
dealers 6r the users. The dealers
make money, but it's never worth
having to always look over. your
shoulder for the police.:
Someone may try to rob you,
you.get caught and you go to jail
(which you will if you play the
game). Then you're sent away
from your family and loved ones.
You start missing all the small
things you took for granted.
Ho'e-\ er, going to jail makes
you feel lucky compared to anoth-
er outcome of becoming involved
Axith drugs: death.
People kill to get drugs, or take
the money from a drug dealer.
Dealers kill each other over mon-

ey, drugs or turf. Users die from
overdosing, or get killed for not
pa. ing money\ they owe. In the
end, lies are always destroyed b.
family members going to jail,
dying or using drugs.
I know first-hand the outcome
of dealing with drugs. I saw man\
families destroyed: parents taking
from their o\\ n family selling pos-.
sessions and bodies for drugs;
children going hungr3 and running
the street \while parents are out get-
ling high.
Most of the time dealers like me
Share selling to people the\ know,
people they grew. up with, or
someone in their own family .
I sit here in prison due to my.
involvement in dealing drugs. I
have friends and people who w ere
'robbed, beaten and shot: We w ere
blessed; :we're in prison, but none
of us were killed.
I pray that if you're playing the
"drug. game" to stop. If you're,
using drugs, seek help, for I would
hate to see you in jail, or read
about you in the obituaries.
The road you are on is only
leading to your doom. Change
your ways, let the small children
see there is a better way..

Glen Saint Mary: Because of
its situation at a major .crossroads
for the area, it can be presumed
that the site of Glen Saint Mary,
more commonly referred to by to-
day's residents as Glen and by past
years' old timers as "Glen Saint
Marys" and "The Glen," had some
semblance of settlement during the
pioneering decades of the 1830s-
In the 1870s, the site began to
attract Northern settlers, doubtless
due to the glowing reports sent to
his friends by newcomer Charles
Turner of New York and New
By 1880, residents of and
around the present city were al-
most all former citizens of the up-
per Midwest and Border States,
plus a few from Nebraska and
George L. Taber, now a legend
in the horticulture industry, arrived
in 1881 for his health. About the
same time Miss Teresa Tilton open-
ed a small hotel to cater to North-
ern visitors.
Both she and Mr. Taber have
been given credit for naming the
town, but 'most believe the honor
belongs to Mr. Taber. He named
what would become his world-fa-
mous horticultural nursery Glen
Saint Mar\ in 1881, and the label
was then most likely applied to the
train stop a few miles north of his
home. :
The name Gleri Saint Mary can
be considered to have become of-'
ficial when the post office was es-
tablished there in 183.
Al\ erdo A. Geitge\ of Ohio %as
a land speculator \. ho took up resi-
dence in Glen in the earl\ \ears of
the 20th century. He platted out the
to\nn suur n after. His Jcsiln for his
adopted community\ \\as based on
the charming arrangement around
a town square he \\as familiar \\ith
in the North. The Great Depres-
sion ended his dream, and Glen
was left to grow like Topsy until
greater.control and imagination
were exercised by a forward think-
ing toi\ n council in the latter years
of the 20th century.
Glen Saint Mary was incorpo-
rated in 1957.
Macclenny: The site of Mac-
clenn\ has long been a place of
habitation. Evidences of aboriginal
peoples ha\ e been found in two ar-'
eas w within the present city limits.
The earliest documented Anglo-
American settlement was in 1833
near today's Pineview Golf Course
and was known'for several dec-
ades as Barber's or Barber's Sta-
tion. This settlement, named for its
primary resident Moses Edward
Barber, remained on most maps
until 1870.
There was either a fort or camp
in the north% est of the present city
during the Second Seminole War,
Verified by digs and metal detector
searches, but the names Fort #18
or Camp Brown are debated.
Co-existent with Barber's in the
late 1850s until the end of the War
Between the States was Williams-
burg on the'west side of the pres-
ent city. Named for andby its
founder Samuel N. Williatms, its
situation on the steep slope of the
Little St. Marys' River proved to be
an impossible stop for trails and
eventually was abandoned.
About a half mile east of Wil-
liamsburg was a sawmill,operated
by a Mr. Jackson in the late 1860s,
and he lent, his name to the site for
a short period.

John Darby, a native of Ireland,
Confederate veteran, and late of
North Carolina, moved his turpen-
tine distillery into what is now east
Macclenny in 1868, and thus Dar-
byville was born. Many Macclen-
ny old-timers continued to refer to
their home town as Darbyville into
the 1940s.
Concurrent with Mr. Darby's
interests in the area were the naval
stores and timber operations of
Confederate veteran Carr Bowers
McClenny of Virginia. Mr. Mc-
Clenny and Northern backers, in-
cluding U.S. Grant, Jr., engaged
Coloney and Talbott of Chicago,
Illinois, to plan the City of Mac-
clenny in the early 1880s.
Until Macclenny was chartered
in 1887, Darbyville continued to
exist within the present city limits.
Incidentally, Coloney and Talbott
were the initial planners for the
.once exclusive Edgewood section
of Jacksonville.
The county seat was moved from
Sanderson to Macclenny in 1888.
Baxter: Baxter is in the north-
east corer of the county and can
be considered the consolidation of
a few earlier nearby settlements.
Named for the owner of a naval
stores and timber milling business
there, Baxter has a long history but
under different names. The earliest
known appellation was Pine Log
Crossing. This name was shown
on maps of the early 19th century,
and according to oral history this
was the name used by Indians and
military in the late decades of the
SNearby was Raulerson's Ferry
(named for William "Ferry Bill"
SRaulerson), the Canada "Fort,"
and Fort Moniac (Moniac, Geor-
gia, is across the St. Mary's River
from the fort's site). In 1904, Bax-
ter \uas the scene ot.a t loodN 're-
Sbellion." After that, the communi-
ty, once relatively busy and popu-
.lated, lost its industries and most
of its residents.
Cuyler: Originally a cluster of
families and a commissary around
a sawmill, this scattered residential
area was named for Cuyler Hil-
liard, scion of a prominent Ware
County, Georgia, family. Cuyler
has beei in existence since the be-
ginning of the 20th century. Mr.
Hilliard's father Col. Thomas Hil-
liard and his Ware County Militia
saw action in the area during the'
Second Seminole War.
It should be noted that the artist
for the cover of the 1961 Baker
County Centennial Celebration
booklet mis-located Cuyler by sev-
eral miles from its true site near
the intersection of CRs 125 and
127. Incidentall\. the artist and
your. columnist are the same (even
,brilliant people make mistakes
now and then).
Hickstown: Named for the
families and relatives of Noah and
Wiley Hicks, Hickstown was situ-
ated a few miles west of Glen Saint
Mary on what was once the main
Jacksonville-Lake City Road. Wi-
ley Hicks' general store served a
wide area.
Johnsville: This community
abutting Sanderson on the north is
what remains of Sanderson's origi-
nal name Johnsville Station. The
residents are of African descent,
and Johnsville 'is the county's sec-
ond largest black community.
Some of the older folks call the
area "Jonesville."

The opportunity came early this
year for the Baker County Com-
mission to tell the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation what proj-
ects it wants on the five year state
assistance plan.
But the April 5 discussion, about
a month early, does not mean Bak-
er County projects will get done
any quicker. FDOT representative
Jordan Green explained the speed
at which projects are completed
depends on when money is avail-
able and can also be affected by
how quickly the planning, land ac-
quisition, permitting and actual
construction progresses.
Some projects, despite being on
the list, may never make it to com-

west of Glen St. Mary. It was last
seen on April 3.

pletion because conditions change
in the interim. Also, local projects
especially may not get done if "en-
hancement" funds are used up.
"We use an equity formula bas-
ed on population and fuel sales tax.
Duval gets half the money because
of that formula, and the rural areas
don't get much," Mr. Green ac-
"But our interstate plans do af-
fect you because so many in your
community commute to Jackson-
ville," he pointed out.
Similarly, Baker County is com-
peting statewide for bridge repair
money. Two local bridge replace-
ments, on CRs 125 and 229, are in
the preliminary engineering and
land acquisition stages with no
construction dates shown.
The list presented by Mr. Green
is in sections depending on type of

ed for construction next year along

another in 2008 in Margaretta .866

ry engineering until 2009 and is
not yet showing a construction time.
CR 228 will be repaved in 2008
from the Duval County line north

$4000 from the $16.25 per case
assessment on court filings.
Ms. Thompson also promised to

Trio receive leadership scholarships from Republicans...
Gail Spivey, Karen McCollum and San Beckum, all of Macclenny, were among nine North Florida women awarded year-long political
leadership training scholarships during the March 23 Republican Party's Lincoln Day celebration in Jacksonville. Florida's program is
named for the late Rep. Tillie Fowler, and curriculum includes eight days of training plus a three day summit in Washington, DC. Topics
will include a history of the Republican Party, formulation of public policy and ethics in government, understanding various levels of gov-
ernment, running a successful election campaign, public speaking, media role in politics, national security and the military. Program par-
ticipants are encouraged to develop their own political philosophy to use in serving their communities. Since the program's inception in
1990, 85% of participants increase their involvement in their local political process. Ms. McCollum is a Baker County School Board mem-
ber, elected in 2004 to fill the remaining term of the late Jeanine Harvey. Ms. Spivey and Ms. Beckum are active in the local GOP.

Armed threats against his girlfriend

A convicted felon who had
been living with a girlfriend south
of Sanderson is charged with mul-
tiple felonies following alleged
threats he made, some while
armed, the afternoon of April 5.
Tipped off by an alarmed rela-
tive, several officers converged at
the residence occupied by Heather
S. Franks, 24, off Lex Jones Road
that evening about 10:50.
Inside, they found the boy-
friend, 20-year-old Steve M.
Clark, and his acquaintance, 19-
year-old Brandon M. Carter, no
address listed.
While he was being questioned
about the alleged threats against
Ms. Franks, auxiliary deputy De-
bora Bailey noticed an object un-
der a carpet that turned out to be a

.25 caliber pistol.
Its serial number had been al-
tered and it is allegedly the one in
Mr. Clark's possession when he
made the threats. The suspect is a
convicted felon.
In the room'occupied by Mr.
Carter, police found a small
amount of marijuana and a smok-
ing pipe.
Ms. Franks, interviewed that
evening at county jail, said the
threats were made while she drove
her boyfriend to pick up Mr. Car-
ter. Mr. Clark allegedly threatened
her life if she informed police of
the abuse and other unspecified
criminal activity. .
The latter is charged with ag-
gravated assault, simple assault,
possession of a weapon by a con-
victed felon and altering the serial

Charged withanimal cruelty

A tenant who. apparentlN had
not been living at his residence
after receiving an eviction notice
faces a charge of animal cruelty
after several malnourished dogs
and a cat were found on the prop-
erty April 4.
A neighbor told police and the
county's animal control officer she
became alarmed when she heard a
puppy crying while hanging half-
way out of a window.
A search of the house rented by
William Lee Jackson, 24, turned

up two other dogs and a cat that
had been deprived of food and wa-
ter. The residence is located on
Debbie Lane in Macclenny.
Deputy Brad Dougherty said
animal waste littered the interior of
the house, and no containers for
food or water were left behind.
Mr. Jackson, contacted later,
said he had tied open a rear door
so the animals could get in and
out. Landlord Debbie Crews told
police she had not seen her renter
in the five days since she served
an eviction notice.

number of a firearm. Mr. Carter
faces misdemeanor charges of pot
possession and having the smok-
ing pipe.
In another domestic violence
case, Christopher A. Bellflower,
32, is accused of punching and
pulling hair during a fight with his
girlfriend over lost cigarettes.
Deputy James Stalnaker was
called to their residence on East
Ohio in Macclenny the afternoon
of April 4. Alicia Johns, 19, of
Lake Butler, also accused the
boyfriend of flushing her necklace
down a toilet.

Arrests for


Two motorists with multiple
driver's license suspensions were
arrested in separate incidents the
past week, the first when a county
deputy recognized the driver and
knew him to be unlicensed.
Deputy James Marker initiated
a traffic stop on a 2001 Oldsmo-
bile on CR 229 near Sanderson
early the afternoon of April 6.
He was aware previously that
driver Chad E. Mallory, 26, of
Sanderson did not have a license
and that it had been suspended
seven times.
Shortly after Deputy Brad
Dougherty clocked Joseph E.
Pryor, 24, of Boca Raton speeding
on Interstate 10 the morning of
April 9, he learned the driver's li-
cense had been suspended 20
times. Most of the suspensions
were for failure to pay fines or
failure to appear in-court.
Mr. Pryor's 2005 Chrysler was
exceeding 90 mph in the east-
bound lane about 10:00 am.

Staggering man
arrested on 90
A Lake City man staggering in
and out of the westbound lane of
US 90 on foot the afternoon of
April 5 was arrested for disorderly
Deputy Brad Dougherty re-
sponded to several telephoned re-
ports about 4:00 pm and found
Randall Harrington, 45, apparently
drunk and walking on and off the
pavement near Enterprise Drive
east of Macclenny.
He told the officer he was walk-
ing home and offered to sit by the
roadside until sober. He was ar-
rested and brought to county jail
for his own safety.

Failure to comply is a third-de-

Many sexual offenders in Baker
County do not fit the stereotype,
Mr. Rhoden and Ms. Gillingham
A lot of times a man may have
been dating an underage girl, but
the family didn't have a problem
with it until the relationship
soured. Then they call in police.
"Those types of offenders sel-
dom repeat," Mr. Rhoden said.
He and experts in the field cau-
tion about lumping those types
with pathological offenders or
those who use violence.
"Some of these guys are able to
go on with their lives and have no
more problems," he said. "But
some never fit in socially."

Common offender myths...

Reconviction data suggest that this is not the case. Further,
reoffense rates vary among different types of sex offenders and
are related to specific characteristics of the offender and the
Children who are sexually assaulted will sexually assault others
when they grow up.
Most sex offenders were not sexually assaulted as children and
most children who are sexually assaulted do not sexually
assault others.
Treatment for sex offenders is ineffective.
Treatment programs can contribute to community safety
because those who attend and cooperate with program condi-

The cost of treating and managing sex offenders in the commu-
nity is too high-they belong behind bars.
One year of intensive supervision and treatment in the communi-
ty can range in cost between $5,000 and $15,000 per offender,
depending on treatment modality. The average cost for incarcer-
ating an offender is significantly higher, approximately $22,000
per year, excluding treatment costs.

6th annual
Iris Show

held Saturday
Iris lovers and the curious turned
out by the dozens at the "
Macclenny Women's Club the
morning ofApril 9for the 6th
annual FLA-GA Iris Show and
Sale. In photo at top, some of the
shoppers looking at plants from
several north Florida iris deal-
ers, all displayed under a tent. At
right, judges Junita Brooks and
Cheryll Pierce of Woodbine, Ga.
move down the entry table inside
the clubhouse, marking off com-
ments on hybrid plants in the

'Rollicking' atmosphere at Patty's...

Entertainment Editor
If you would like fun, great
food and ai interesting location
and don't mind a short drive down
1-95, then Hurricane Patty's at the
Oyster Creek Marina in St. Augus-
tine is the place for you. Hurricane
Patty's (not-to be mistaken-fdor
Panama Hattie's) is a great place if
you like a rollicking atmosphere
and wonderful seafood.
My buddy Denny Wells and I
stumbled across Hurricane Patty's
after a fishing trip to St. Augus-
tine. Denny, who regularly goes to
St. Augustine, wanted to try some-
place new. We asked the guide
about a good seafood restaurant a
little off the beaten path, some-
where tourists didn't know. He
said Hurricane Patty's. We decided
to search it out, and am I ever glad.
It doesn't look like much when
you pull off US 1 and drive up to
the restaurant, more like an old
fish camp and has the same sort of
atmosphere. I think of it.as Pirate
Chic. The waitresses wear skull
and crossbones t-shirts, and so do
a lot of the clientele.
It seems to be a local watering
hole, but with great food and a
fun, loud, raucous atmosphere.
The atmosphere is fun and contin-
ues the pirate theme. There are pi-
rates climbing the posts and a big
shark with a leg in its mouth.
I'suppose the food has a New
Orleans flair to it. You can order
Jambalaya, gumbo, the fresh sea-
food can be served blackened, and
on Thursday night, Cajun Dave

'and his band entertain.
Luckily, Denny and I went on a
Thursday night and were we hap-
py about it. Cajun Dave's band is
terrific, playing Cajun, Creole, Zy-
deco and all different styles.of mu-
sic. They also have a tremendous
rapport with the audience. To keep
with the genre, the waitresses hand
ourt Mardi CG ras beads: f6the cli-
Of course, if you're like me, the
food is what's the most important
thing. I flat-out loved my meal at
Hurricane Patty's. I started off
with a couple of appetizers an ar-
tichoke dip served in a bread bowl
and a cup of she-crab soup: The
artichoke dip was served with
bread and crackers and was very
good. The she-crab soup was out of
this world. It was in a crnme sauce
with just a little paprika.
For the entree, I had a ziti pasta
in an garlic alfredo sauce and top-
ped with blackened shrimp and
scallops. It was served in a big
bowl and there was enough for two
people. The scallops were fresh
and succulent, and the shrimp were

Agricultural Center employees
will have to continue setting buck-
ets under roof leaks and mopping
up a while longer maybe a lot
longer, even if the county gets
"toad strangler" rains.
That is the term used by Baker
County Commission Chairman Ju-
lie Combs during an emergency
meeting April 12, as the board dis-
cussed a number of county build-
ings with roof leak problems.
The Ag Center is the worst, said
Building Official Bob Hathcox,
who recommended installing met-
al panels on the sloped portions
immediately. The flat parts are ap-
parently not the source of the leaks
and could wait until the next fiscal
year starts in October, Mr. Hath-
cox said.
But he does want a licensed roof-
ing contractor to approve that se-
quence of work, since the metal
sheets might have to be disturbed
on the flat sections. *
The commission opted to wait
for a firm price on materials, which
County Manager Jason Griffis said
could be available for the next reg-
ular meeting on April 18. He gave
a tentative quote of $6000; labor is
mostly free with maintenance as-
sistant Wendell Ray Combs super-
vising an inmate crew.
That crew recently completed
reroofing the building and zoning
office and the Taylor.voting house.
Those were the two buildings the
commission decided last fall should
be done first. Both suffered some
damage during the series of hurri-
canes last year.
Two buildings were to be
scheduled for roof replacement an-
nually until all are repaired.
Commissioner Alex Robinson
appeared to be the only board
member wanting to hold to the
original quota of two buildings per

very good.
I was so full at the end of my
entr6e that I didn't have dessert,
though there were lots to choose
from. All'in all, it was a very good
meal in a nice place.
After the meal, it's fun to walk
on the marina and look at the boats
moored there. Hurricane Patty's is
"ell";.'. orh the drive'a-nd a good
place to eat for dinner, and particu-
larly at lunch where the prices are
much cheaper.
Though it's a little off the beat-
en path, don't let that deter you.
After a day exploring in St. Au-
gustine, it's the perfect place to top
off a fine day.

"I appreciate the concern, but if
we don't have the money, I don't
favor borrowing money. We have
five months to go and I'm not vot-
ing to deplete contingency. They'll
just have to keep mopping and set-
ting out buckets."
However, the county's hurri-
cane damage reimbursement from
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency was three times the
actual $2051 it cost to repair the
Taylor voting house.
"They paid us based on the esti-
mate of roof repairs, and they
don't care how we spend the reim-
bursement," said Emergency Ser-
vices Director Rick Clark.
"That means we only need an-
other $2000," suggested Commis-
sioner Fred Raulerson, who noted
the eventual expense might be far
more if intruding water damages

causes mold.

Wildcats baseball loses

two games, finds starter

BY MICHAEL RINKER the first week of May.
Press Sports Next up on the schedule is

The Wildcats baseball team
dropped a pair of tough games last
week, but Coach Sherman Reed
was able to see the silver lining.
"I've been looking for a third.
starter, and I think I've found
him," Reed said, referring to ju-
nior Dusty Combs, who gave up
just one run in Baker High's 1-0
home loss to Paxon April 6.
Unfortunately for Combs and
the Cats, Paxon's Matt Boyd threw
a no-hitter, striking out 13 to get
the win.
The loss, coupled with a defeat
at West Nassau the day before,
dropped the Cats' record to 7-8.
Reed called Combs a "pleasant
"He spots the ball well, changes
speeds and has a good breaking
ball," he said.
Earlier in tie season, Comb'
came on in relief in the fourth in-
ning against Hilliard and held it
hitless for the rest of the game, en-
abling the Cats to rally from a 5-0
deficit to win 14-5.
Kris Linster and John Barrett
are the number one and two
Against West Nassau, the Wild-
cats were up 4-1 going into the
bottom of the sixth when the War-
riors scored six to take control of
the game and earn a 7-1'victory.
"We just imploded," Reed said.
He's been trying to get the team
to consistently put together the
three facets of the game: hitting,
pitching and defense.
t "We usually get two of the
three," he said.
Against West Nassau, they got
good pitching and hitting, but they
had five errors in the game. Errors
played a key part in the one bad
inning they had.
Against Paxon, the Cats com-
mitted just one error and got a
strong pitching effort from Combs,
but obviously lacked the hitting.
Reed said the team is in pretty
good shape as far as positioning it-
self for the district tournament,
where the strategy is to avoid pow-
erhouse Bolles until the final.
The team has several more
games until the tournament starts

BCSO deputy throws out first pitch
Baker County Sheriff's Deputy Ben Anderson prepares to throw out the first pitch as the
Jacksonivlle Suns game April 9. He was named the first recipient of the Coca Cola Baker
County's Finest, a quarterly award recognizing deputies for job performance, community
work or good deeds. Anderson came to the aid of two out-of-state women whose car broke
down one night on 1-10. He took them to Baldwin when they couldn't find a motel room in
Baker County, then after working all night went out the next day, bought them an alternator
and installed it with the help of Brad Harvey. Anderson was nominated by his supervisor,
Sgt. Jimmy Nickles. Beginning next May, the four winners each year will be finalists for the
annual Coca Cola Morris FishAward. In addition to-throwing out the first pitch of the game,
Anderson and his family, along with others from the sheriff's office were guests in the Coca
Cola suite at the Baseball Grounds at Jacksonville. He also received a plaque and a cer-
tificate for a steak dinner for him and his family.

ber Dolby all won their singles
Canady and Gotay won their
doubles match as did Novaton and
"Overall, the girls really shone,"
Coach Karla Amburgey said.
There were several stand out
performances in the girls matches.
Canady was down 6-3 at one
point, but she fought back to win
her match 8-6.
"I was really proud of the way
she dug in. It was the hardest game
I've ever seen her play," Ms. Am-
burgey said.
Novaton also showed that she
had game by winning 9-8.
"It was a real good game for a
freshman. I was really impressed."
The boys almost got a free pass
because only two Trojans showed
up to compete. As a result, Isaac
Cranford, Dylan Gerard, Jay No-
vaton and John Mobley won by
In the only two contested
matches, Paul Talbert won 8-2,
Randall Vonk 8-4.
The boys doubles team of Cran-
ford and Novaton won 8-3 while
Talbert and Mobley won by for-
"I'm really looking forward to
the next few years of tennis be-
cause of the freshmen girls," Am-
burgey said."The girls are real go-
getters... they have a lot of poten-
tial... and I'm very excited."
Speaking of the future, Mrs.
Amburgey will be losing four to
five guys to graduation and only
two girls.
"I'm looking forward to work-
ing with the girls,"
The tennis teams were slated to
play Keystone Heights April 7,
but the matches were canceled due
to rain. It will not be made up due
to the season coming to an end.
With an optimistic eye towards
upcoming seasons, the tennis team
will hang up their racquets after
districts on April 18-19.
The teams will leave April 17
for the district tournament, which
runs April 18 and 19 in Femandina
"The team raised enough mon-
ey to ride to Fernandina on Sun-
day, so they will be rested for
Monday. They'll get some practice
time in on the courts they'll play
on for districts."
With two games left on their
schedule, the girls stand, at 3-5
while the boys are 3-7.
They play at Lake City April 13
and at home against West Nassau
April 14.
