cop abuse

BCSO is awaiting
investigation by FBI

BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
The Baker County Sheriff's Of-
fice has backed off a promise to re-
lease results of an internal investi-
gation into whether two deputies
used excessive force during an ar-
rest in March.
Instead, Sheriff Joey Dobson
will wait for the FBI to complete its
criminal investigation of deputies
Charles Ross and Darrin Whitaker
before making public his findings.
"We've never had one where
criminal charges arepending,"
Sheriff Dobson said. "When we
told you [we'd release the internal
results]-we-knew.about it, but had-
n't really thought it through."
FBI spokesman Jeff Westcott
said in Jacksonville there is no way
to, predict how long the agency's
investigation will take.
"I can't discuss the progress of
an investigation," he said. "There's
no 'typical' time frame. It's howev- -
er long it takes to conduct a thor-
ough investigation, to review evi-
dence, conduct interviews. Some
take a few days, some a few
months; I've known them to take
up to a year.
"Some agencies wait for our in-
vestigation, some don't."
Chief Gerald Gonzalez conduct-
ed the internal investigation, which
began March 23. It will determine
whether the deputies violated de-
partment policy during the arrest.
Neither has been suspended.
"Everything is pretty much done,
but in speaking with the sheriff we
have elected not to complete the in-
ternal," he said. "We're waiting for
the FBI; it's really the way you're
supposed to do it."
He emphasized the investiga-
tions are independent, and noted
that that the officers are required to
answer questions for the internal
investigation while in criminal cas-
es defendants have the right to re-
main silent.
"We don't want to risk violating
the deputies' rights," he said. "Any-
thing they say to us could be con-
sidered coerced statements in the
criminal case."
On the other hand, he said, "I
can use anything they find in their
investigation."
The FBI is trying to determine
whether the deputies violated the
civil rights of the Macclenny man
who claims they used police brutal-
ity during a March 19 arrest.
FBI investigators will look at the
circumstances of the arrest to deter-
mine whether the officers used "un-
reasonable" or "excessive" force
against Michael Harvey.
Investigators will then forward
their findings to the U.S. Attorney
and the Department of Justice,
where prosecutors would decide
whether to bring charges against
the officers.
According to the arrest report
written by Deputy Ross, he went to
Mac's Liquors to arrest Mr. Harviey
on two outstanding felony warrants
one for possession of cocaine, the
other for dealing in stolen property

Baker Beauties softball team's 'shear' talent extends to coaches
Baker Beauties player Kaylie Holton takes the hair trimmers to the head of Clay Adkins, one of the coaches of her Pitching Machine girls softball league. The coaches, including Joe
Albino (far right) and Jason Knabb (far left), promised to let the girls shave their heads if the team went undefeated. The team, however, lost to the Saints earlier in the season, so the
coaches amended their promise to let the girls shear them if the Beauties won the rematch between the two teams, which they'did May 9. The team has one game left in the season, but has
clinched first place in the league, which is for girls from 8-10 years old.


Clay soil delaying the start of YMCA pool


BY JIM McGAULEY
Press Publisher
Where's the pool?
Following months of lobbying
back in 2003 and subsequent com-
mitments by local governments, the
Baker Family YMCA pulled to-
gether support to construct and
manage a competition-size swim-
ming pool.
The facility, equipped to handle
events from sanctioned competition
all the way down to beginner les-
sons, would be ready to go by this
summer.
It's nearly summer and the Y has


yet to turn a shovel of dirt on the
tract of land donated by Macclenny
just west of the Lowder St. head-
quarters.
Patience, advises Shawn East-
man, the YMCA executive direc-
tor. Construction is just around the
corner.
"We had every intention of open-
ing up the summer with the new
pool, but we ran into trouble with
unsuitable soil material there's
too much clay at the site," explain-
ed Mr. Eastman, who led the lobby-
ing effort two years ago to get the
project off the ground.


Chief/mayor feud

A long-running feud between Baldwin's mayor and police de-
partment has spilled over into Baker County as a local mechanic is

The plans are complete, the Y
has made arrangements with its
parent organization to fund the
price gap resulting from the glitch
and, pending the speed of a permit
from the water district, plans to be-
gin construction in July.
That pushes an opening date
back to late summer or early fall,
so it's a stretch to say the new pool
will be available for public use to
any great extent before the weather
changes.
"We will be able to swim in it
this year, if it's only to begin train-
ing our staff in the off-season," said


the director.
The organization learned in
February via soil sampling on the
five acre tract that it is unsuitable
for compaction around a concrete
pool.
A heavy clay concentration re-
sults in excessive expansion with
heat and contraction in the cold,
'which heightens the likelihood of
cracks in the lining.
The solution: excavate and re-
move the clay, then replace it with
suitable soil.

in part due to overlapping and confusing city laws.

Into funds missing
from animal control

BY JIM McGAULEY
Press Publisher
As the state attorney's office in
Gainesville entered its second week
of investigation into the apparent
disappearance of an estimated
$10,000 in cash from the county's
animal control operations, the sec-
retary to the County Commission
was suspended without pay on
Monday.
Suzanne Rhoden of Sanderson,
who has worked in county adminis-
tration since 1998, was sent a sec-
ond letter by County Manager Ja-
son Griffis the following day in-
forming her she has 14 days to re-
spond to the Commission.
The earlier letter, according to
Mr. Griffis, was also sent certified
and put Ms. Rhoden on notice of a
"pre-termination" conference next
week with himself and County At-
torney Terry Brown of Starke.
The letter makes reference to the
investigation into the missing
funds.
Ms. Rhoden, who has a history
of heart problems, was hospitalized
two weeks ago shortly after it be-
came known at the courthouse that
a state investigator was looking in-
to the allegations.
As reported last week in The
Press, Investigator Mark Islar of
Gainesville had completed inter-
views with all employees in the ad-
ministrative annex and several in
the clerk's office except one. That
one was Ms. Rhoden.
She was released from the hos-
pital two weekends ago and re-
mained away from the office on
sick leave last week. She sought
additional leave this week, and in
the meantime retained a Jackson-
ville attorney, who advised the
county and investigator that all
communication go through him.
Due to the late hour Tuesday, no
attempt was made to contact the at-
torney, nor Mr. Brown, for com-
ment.
Spencer Mann, spokesman for
the state attorney's office, refused
direct comment on whether Ms.
Rhoden was a suspect, and whether
she was the sole target of the probe.
He did confirm, however, that
the state has and is subpoenaing "a
plethora of records" and those
could include bank accounts.
Like others including county of-
ficials, Mr. Mann said the office
will be holding off on more specif-
ic comment until the investigation
is complete.
Mr. Griffis and'other officials at
the county office have likewise
been advised by the prosecutor's
office and Mr. Brown to refrain
from public comment.
It is believed the missing funds
were originally collected.at the
county animal shelter off Steel
Bridge Road from a number of
sources: adoption and re-claiming
fees, veterinarian charges and oth-
ers collected.
The request for an investigation
resulted from a discrepancy in the
amount receipted at the shelter ver-

Baldwin feud spills into county Abuse investigation resul deae..
/-... ... .. hb hitting him on the le~ft arm with in his scaln


(from page one)
In fact, a lawsuit filed three
years ago by former police chief
Harvey Branch against the town
and Mayor Marvin Godbold is,still
making its way through the courts.
At issue is the relationship be-
tween the elected offices of mayor
and chief, and who has jurisdiction
over which matters.
Complicating the relationship is
the fact that the mayor is also the
police commissioner.
Several months ago, the depart-
ment barely survived a council vote
to disband it.
Although Branch is no longer
chief, Guy Turcotte, who currently
holds the position, is likewise at
odds with Mayor Godbold.
The point is illustrated by the
unpaid repair bill.
The mayor said he told the po-
lice department.not to have the
work done on the patrol car be-
cause the town council had to de-
cide whether it would move for-
ward on the chief's request for new
cars to replenish his aging fleet.
The council voted to deny pay-
ing the bill until it received addi-
tional information, according to the
mayor.
"So I sent [the police depart-
ment] a memo telling them not to
fix it, and 'not' was in big letters,"
the mayor said during an interview
May 10 at the Press office.
"We're a small town with a
small budget, we can't continue to
let .people make their own rules....
Suppose all departments did that?
"I'm not one to keep shoveling
money at someone."
Captain Greg Burr, a spokes-
man for the police department, al-
so came to the newspaper Tuesday
to talk about the issue, saying the'
chief does not report to the mayor.
"We can't be micromanaged,"
he said. "The mayor won't dictate
how our fleet runs."
Captain Burr produced a copy of
a court order that says the chief has
the right to "... act on behalf of the
town, subject only to budgetary
constraints imposed by the town
through its council and subject to
state law."
That order, from the Fourth Cir-
cuit Court in Jacksonville, is part of
former chief Branch's lawsuit, but
is being appealed.
In essence, police officials con-
tend the order means they have the
autonomy to spend the money bud-
geted to them without seeking per-
mission for each expenditure.


Yet, the town charter.gives the;
police commissioner power to set:
policy, according to town attorney.
Jeb Branham.
"There is overlap," he said. "It's
a tough situation."
He said the Branch litigation
might clear it up.
Meanwhile, Burr argued that the
police department did nothing
wrong in getting the car fixed.
"We got a purchase order num-
ber from city hall. The bill comes
to the police department, we for-
ward it to city hall. The mayor re-,
fused to pay."
In tact, me purchase order num-
ber was issued in December, but
the work was not done until March.
Both the city attorney and mayor
said Mr. Johnson should have ques-
tioned whether it was a valid pur-
chase order.
Captain Burr defended using the
number by saying it was issued for
the repairs that were in fact done.
"We followed procedure's, -got
estimates, went with the cheapest,"
he said. "It was a longer time
frame, but the same problem from
the beginning."
Attorney Branham said the key
issue for the council to consider is
whether Mr. Johnson did the re-
pairs under a "good faith" belief
the work was authorized.
Mr. Johnson said he had no rea-
son to believe otherwise because
he'd done so much work for the
police in the past.
"I've even fixed the mayor's
car," he said. "How can city coun-
cil deny paying my bill'when I
worked on a city-owned vehicle?"
Amid the back and forth, the
mayor suggested to Mr. Johnson he
get a lien on the car, which is in


possession of the police depart-
ment, then'take it to town hall.
There, he could pick up a check for
the amount owed him. The town
would then sell the car to recoup
the money.
Mr. Johnson said that if he gets
his money, any future work he does
with the town will be cash up-front.
"They will never owe me
again," he said, adding that he will
tell others about what has happened
to him. "If the city's doing this to
one small business, what makes
you think they won't do it to oth-
ers?"

Puffing chimpanzee, teaching of


evolution theory are connected


MY SIDE OF
. m -i i __ ,_ _


Two stories in the news stuck in
my head this week, and when that
happens, I have to write about
them. or my head will explode like
a melon falling off the back of a
pickup truck. These stories just
seemed so connected to me that
they begged to be written about.
In Kansas,. the state legislature
is debating whether to pull the
teaching of evolution from the
public schools.
In Johannesburg, South Africa,
zoo officials are trying to get a
chimp to quit smoking.
These stories are linked.
First, the Kansas story. The de-
bate over the teaching of evolution
has been a tough one since the
1920s when the original Scopes
Monkey Trials came to national
prominence. It has been a hot but-
ton issue ever since, but this is the
S first time in recent memory it has
gotten this far. Who knows how it
will end?
As for the monkey, you may
have seen this primate puffing
away on some butts. The smoking
chimp was featured on most of the
major news outlets last week.
It seems that chimps are tre-
mendous mimics and he would
watch people smoking. When
somebody flipped a cigarette butt
over the fence, the chimp picked it
up and smoked it. Zoo. visitors
thought it was funny and kept
throwing him cigarettes until he
was hooked. Now he's up to a
couple of packs a day.
He's a quite a smoker. He in-
hales and blows the smoke out his
nose. He seems to enjoy his ciga-
rettes, but zoo officials are con-
cerned. Smoking is just as bad for
a chimp as a human, and so they
are trying to make Cheetah go cold
turkey. The chimp likes it about as
much as a human would. He's
grumpy, is gaining weight and go-
ing through nicotine fits. A good
time is not had by all.
So, how does this fit in with the
evolution debates in Kansas? Sup-
porters of evolution would claim
this is just another example of the

ties between apes and men. I look
at it a little differently.
I think the folks in Kansas have
it all wrong.
Men did not evolve from mon-
keys. There. I've said it.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm
not saying I don't believe in evolu-
tion, I'm saying that Darwin didn't
get his facts straight.
Monkeys evolved from men. We
aren't the top of the food chain.
They are.
Let's think about it a second.
Humans are supposed to be such
big bugs, right? Certainly we think
we are. As Shakespeare put it -
"What a piece of work is man,
how noble in reason, how infinite
in faculties in form and movement
how like the angels. In apprehen-
sion, how like the gods."
Yeah right. Shakespeare missed
out, too. He should have been talk-
ing about apes.
The reason the smoking chimp
brought this reverse theory of evo-
lution to my mind was because it
was so unusual. It,was the first
smoking monkey I'd ever heard
of. People laughed at the smoking
chimp because he looked so hu-
man puffing on a butt.
Hmm. A chimp involved in de-
structive behavior. Usually that
takes a human.
If we're so smart, why do we
do such stupid stuff? Monkeys
don't.
Only humans would cut down
the entire Amazon for farm land
when it's the world's largest pro-
ducer of oxygen.
Monkeys don't go to war over
oil and religion. Monkeys don't
combine transmission fluid and
over the counter cold tablets to
make drugs.'
Monkeys could care less what
Paris Hilton and Madonna are up
to or who Ben Afleck is going to
marry.
A chimp probably could drive
an SUV, but if he did, he'd sure
enough take it off-road where it
belongs.
I doubt a chimp would pay $150
for a. pair of tennis shoes that cost
$7 to make.
There you have it. As far as I'm
concerned, monkeys have more
going for them than humans. Peo-
ple love to watch chimps laugh
their chimpish heads off. But I


know why they're laughing.
They're just biding their time until
we kill ourselves off and they can
take over.
Planet of the Apes was right.
I mean really, take a look at hu-
man/chimp combinations. The
chimps always seem to come off
looking like the smartest of the
two. I'll show you what I mean.
Michael Jackson or his chimp,
Bubbles. No question about it.
Tarzan or Cheetah. Ungawah.
BJ or the Bear.
Ronald Reagan or Bonzo.
The chimps have it flat out. I rest
my case.
The Kansas legal system can
throw this business out and go
back to deciding important stuff,
like whether the ball of twine in
Lawrence, Kansas, actually is the
world's largest.

Every spring comes the urge to


stare at the graduates, and wonder


IMPRESSIONS
JIM McGAULEY.


Every year about this time I
have the same sensation.
Another class graduates from
Baker High. It's usually a pleasant
spring evening over at Memorial
Stadium, though we've had our
share of downpours over the years,
notably the Hurricane of 1987.
You may not have heard about
it had you been living elsewhere,
but that was the night we got our
own hurricane. No one else in
Florida got it, and .it sure wrecked
graduation night for a lot of fami-
lies.
It also taught us all how to run
from lightning, which that night
rained down on us like mortar fire.
But I digress.
The "sensation" referenced
above has nothing to do with
weather. It overtakes me when I
look at all the handsome graduates
lining up, hugging and taking pho-
-tos of one another. Many have
anxious expressions as if they
know their lives will change dras-
tically after this night. Some for


the better; some will never have it
as good as they did "back in high
school."
Pardon me for bringing this up,
but I always stare at the class as it
assembles on the football field in
neat rows.
And I wonder how many of
them can actually read and write
on a level commensurate with high
school graduates.
It's a gripping thought because
one doesn't really know the
answer. What intrigues me is why
do I keep wondering the same
thing each year?
The famous FCAT test results
suggest to us that most of the stu-
dents are reading at grade level,
and one has to believe the percent-
age at or above surely is rising
with the emphasis put on basic
skills and the pressure to bring stu-
dents and schools up to at least the
"C" level.
In the newspaper business, of
course, we deal in words. We are
much more attuned to literacy
skills both in the office and on the
street. It is, after all, essential that
the public can read, or our news-
papers stay on the racks unsold.
So we have more of a vested in-
terest than, say the nursery
business or fast food or even retail
services.
But then we see the level of


skills displayed by job applicants -
yes, many of them the product of
local schools. Or we see what
passes for writing skills in the
form of documents brought into
the newspaper office.
It's a real mixed bag.
I'm skeptical at times because
young people can get by in
secondary school with skill levels
far below what they'll need in the
outside world to get good jobs.
You can, if you are adaptable
enough, slide along under the
radar through the 12 grade and,
though you may have dexterity
and mental sharpness from playing
video games, you end up not
knowing anything worth knowing.
And because you can get by
without being challenged, you
probably are unaware you don't
know anything until you get out in
the real world. If you're smart,
that's when you do your growing
up and catching up.
So the skepticism remains.
Each graduating class has its suc-
cess stories kids who are
equipped to go most anywhere and
make it. Trouble is, on graduation
night everybody looks about the
same. You can't tell the prepared
from the unprepared.
And that's why I'll probably
keep staring at the classes,
wondering which is which.


'Preserve it now that I'm here...


ON THE

RECORD
.i ,

For some reason,' people seemm-
to feel once they move someplace;
it should remain just that way for
the rest of time.
They say, they moved to Mac-
clenny or Baker County to get
away from the fast-paced, big-city
life to be among the trees and
sparse traffic and now they don't
want anyone else to come and
spoil it.
Never mind that they perhaps
spoiled an even easier-going life
for others all the way back to the
Native Americans, some of whom
were probably as "greedy" to sell
as their modern counterparts.
The big problem is that you on-
ly own and control to the borders
of your own land. This was most
intriguingly pointed out years ago
as a group of residents along the
North Boulevard corridor filled the
Macclenny Commission room, to
protest a proposed development.
One after the other, these folks
stood up to complain how the de-
velopment would "ruin our way of
life."
Finally, the prospective devel-
oper demanded, "Just what is it
you want?"
"We want our woods!" thunder-
ed a man from the back of the
room.
"But that's the point they are-
n't your woods. They're my woods.
If you want them to be your
woods, you need to buy them," the
developer responded.
For some reason, that proposal
never went through at least not
then. Now, of course, the northeast
quadrant of Macclenny is one of
the faster developing areas of the
city, right up there with the north-
west, southeast and southwest.
The southeast was the center of
contention during the May 10
board meeting. Developer Jimmy
Yarborough wants to put in a small
office complex adjacent to a 24
unit townhouse community he al-
ready plans south of Mariner Nurs-
ing and Rehab along SR 228.
The neighbors turned out, al-
though apparently there were only
two households represented. Carl
Victor indicated he may try to
bring more opponents for the sec-
ond public hearing of Mr. Yarbor-
ough's rezoning request at the June
14 meeting.
Rezoning issues take two public
hearings, and this week was the
first.
Among the more amusing com-
ments included complaints over


the proposed Wal-Mart Super-
Center going in farther south on
SR 228 at Interstate 10.
"Did anyone ask the citizens if
they wanted this development, like
Wal-Mart?," demanded Dorothy
Felts. "It's all about money."
People do want to shop at plac-
es like Wal-iMari, City Manager
Gerald Dopson pointed out.
But someone at the back of the
room noted they "don't want to
shop at that little one we have."
"Just because growth wants to
come in doesn't mean you have to


let it," said Lori Dugan.
The city does keep in mind the
need for transitional buffers be-
tween residential and commercial,
explained Manager Dopson.
The area already has a church,
nursing home, furniture store and
post office, he pointed out, s. an of-
fice complex, which may already
have American Enterprise Bank as
a tenant, will be compatible.
As the commission prepared to
vote unanimously for the rezoning,
Manager Dopson noted there are
no legal grounds to deny it.

Federal ovenment releases list of 26 others

as un*incted co-conspirators in'Sawmill' case


The federal government has
named 26 unindicted co-conspira-
tors in the case against nine area
residents arrested February 28 in
Operation Sawmill, a major meth-
amphetamine and marijuana bust.
An unidentified co-conspirator
is someone who the government
believes had knowledge of a
criminal enterprise, either through
participation or interaction with
those arrested.

Clay soil is

delaying start

on new Y pool

(from page one)
has had to scramble to procure the
dirt and find a way to finance the
added $186,000 cost resulting
from the soil glitch.
That pushes the price of the
pool, bath house and parking area
up to $986,000. The original esti-
mate in 2003 when first proposed
ran from $550,000-$700,000.
"We were lucky in one way; we
were able to get the new dirt do-
nated, and we convinced Metro
(the First Coast YMCA headquar-
ters in Jacksonville) to come
through with the extra cash so we
could get started," explained Mr.
Eastman.
The dirt donor lives in Baker
County and wants to remain anon-
ymous.
Talk of a new pool to replace
the one razed in 1988 on the site of
the new Macclenny post office
was frequent during mid-2003 as
local governments lined up in sup-
port of the effort with some dis-
sent.
Macclenny agreed to donate the
land valued at $200,000 near its
sewer plant. Glen St. Mary fol-
lowed suit with a cash commit-
ment of $50,000 over ten years;
Wal-Mart Distribution Center
kicked in $20,000 over.ten years.,...
The Baker County Commis-.;,
sion, by a vote of 3-2, pledged
$150,000 in the fall of 2003 over
ten years. The county board re-
quired as a condition the Y allow
public access to the pool at least
half the time it is open daily, or
four hours daily.
The YMCA plans several pool-
related activities including open
swims for non-members at a nomi-
nal fee.
Macclenny, in addition to its
land donation, agreed to stand in
as the sponsor for a $200,000 state
recreation grant, the largest single
portion so far of the construction
cost.
The grant funds have to be
spent during this calendar year,
another incentive to get the project
underway soon.
"The delay is regrettable," said
Mr. Eastman. "We were on track
with the money and commitments
from everybody and then this
came up with the clay and con-
crete.
"We were fortunate to get the
soil donation and pledge-from
Metro. We khow we're doing this
right and in the end it'll be worth
it. It's just taking longer than we
planned."


They have not been charged
with a crime.
Prosecutors may use them as
witnesses or may charge them at a
later date. They may use the
threat of charges to compel testi-
mony.
Steve Cole, a spokesman for
the U.S. Attorney's Office, ac-
knowledged the court filing, but
declined to comment on the gov-
ernment's plans for the co-con-
spirators.
The court filing, which is re-
quired, does not list addresses or
hometowns, but many are from
the Baker County area.

Operation Sawmill, a multi-
agency investigation that lasted
more than a year, targeted a drug
ring that imported and sold meth-
amphetamine and marijuana in
the Baker County area.
A federal grand jury indicted
13 people in all. Of those, nine
live in here.
Officers of the task force
dubbed the investigation "Opera-
tion Sawmill" because two of the
alleged ringleaders, brothers
James and John Merrett, run a
sawmill on their property on the
Georgia side of the St. Mary's
River.
The ring sold more than 1000
pounds of marijuana and six
pounds of methamphetamine dur-
ing a four-year period, according
to the government, although US
Attorney Paul Perez said those
amounts are just what the feds can
prove, not what was likely distrib-
uted.
Both drugs were imported via
tractor trailers to Baker and Polk
counties from southern California.
Another pipeline shipped Mex-
ican marijuana through Texas and
Georgia to Baker.
Sheriff Joey Dobson said the
investigation had its roots in sev-
eral drug-related arrests that took
Space several years ago in and
around Macclenny.
In addition to the Merrett
brothers, the following suspects
were arrested February 28:
Charity Merrett, of St.
George, who is married to James.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS Thursday, May 12 2005 Page Five


Fall elections bring new ballots


Voters in the Macclenny and
Glen St. Mary elections September
6 will have a new ballot format,
and the hearing, vision and mobili-
ty impaired will be able to vote on
their own.
Elections Supervisor Nita Craw-
ford explained to the Baker Coun-
ty Commission May 3 that she al-
ready has $75,064 in state funds as
the down payment on the system.
S The remaining $94,822 will be due
over two years and supplier Die-
bold is not charging interest.
Diebold is an Ohio-based firm
with offices worldwide dealing
with elections systems as well as
security, banking, card entry and
currency processing. So far, it is
the only company to win Florida's
certification for elections hardware
and software; two other companies
are also seeking Florida's business.
The state set a July 1 deadline
to have the new system in place,
mostly because of problems in the
2000 national election.
Baker County was not using the
punch machines of the infamous
"hanging chads" fame, or incom-
plete punch-throughs that led to
weeks of uncertainty over the out-
come of the presidential ballot that
year.
SIronically, other states do not
have the same mandates to change
voting machinery, so may be a rea-
dy market for Baker County's cast-
offs. In making the motion to ap-
prove the purchase, Commissioner
Gordon Crews asked that the old
machines be sold and the income
used toward paying the debt.
Most voters here will see little
difference in the machines. The
ballots will be a bit different: a fill-
in-the-oval format similar to most
tests, where on the old form voters
connected two sections of an ar-
row.
However, there will now be one
touch screen at each precinct to
meet Americans with Disabilities
Act requirements. The print size
can be increased for the vision im-
paired, there will be headphones
for the hearing impaired, and the
touch screen can be activated with
a mouth-held stylus.
This means those with disabili-
ties can vote alone. Previously,


Ordered to

move trailer
A discarded mobile home twist-
ed by last year's hurricane must be
removed by June 21, or owners
Roger and Sharon Robinson will
begin to accrue daily fines.
The couple also face the same
deadline to put skirting around
S their current trailer home next to
the first one on CR 229 South.
S Mr. Robinson told the county's
i zoning Code Enforcement Board
S May 9 that he is disabled with a
heart condition and his wife has
been unable to work since her ve-
hicle was destroyed several months
ago.
"We're way behind on our bills
and don't have the money to do
what needs to be done," he said.
Chairman Jim McGauley noted
the Robinsons were first notified
of the violations last September,
before Mrs. Robinson's accident.
Although the couple asked for a
three month grace period, code
board member Scott Anderson's
motion called for a June 21 dead-
line.
"That's the one year anniver-
sary of when the complaint was
made," he explained.
A group signing itself "South
Sanderson citizens" has been com-
plaining about Mr. Robinson and
others in that neighborhood far
longer. The letters dating back to
July 2000 cite a number of vi-
olations, which building and zon-
ing officials say the owners tempo-
rarily clean up when contacted.
The Robinson property was first
noted in a July 2002 letter, citing a
S "junk pool and deck that hasn't
been used for years," and suggest-
ing the "trailer could use a good
cleaning too."
[ Another letter last October notes
S the old trailer had been moved to a


:! pasture, where the hurricane blew
the roof off and twisted the frame.
In the only other case scheduled
that evening, Henry Harris had
completed skirting and cleanup
around his trailer on Clifford Dug-
ger Road.
S Mr. McGauley was re-elected
S chairman, Danny Burger vice-
chairman. The regular meetings
remain the second Tuesday of the
month.


many have voted absentee or taken
someone into the booth with them
The machines can be taken to a
car a service that has always been
available locally, usually via ab-
sentee ballots.
In Macclenny, the commission
has the option to fill a seat vacated
April 27 by B.J. Cannon, or to
hold a special election. Chances
are the board will appoint some-
one, who can then run for the Sep-
tember 6 election.
The seats held by Dr. Richard
Johnson and Tommy Johns were
already scheduled to be on the bal-
lot.
In Glen, the positions currently


held by Woody Crews, Jack Re-
neau and Perry Hays will be on the
ballot.
In other business from the May
3 meeting, the commission ap-
proved a contract with BellSouth
for enhanced 911 service to about
200 west county customers on the
Lake City exchange. The instal-
lation cost is $2370, then $185 per
month.
The therapist at the Mental
Health Services clinic will work 10
hour days Monday through Thurs-
day to assist clients who can't
come during regular office hours.
Three case managers will stay on
the regular five day schedule.

Deputy eyes pot


on a coffee table


Responding to a report of a dis-
turbance May 4, police arrested a
Macclenny man on drug charges
after seeing marijuana on his cof-
fee table.
Joshua Going, 20, was charged
with felony possession of prescrip-
tion pills, misdemeanor possession
of marijuana and narcotic para-
phernalia.
Deputy Michael Lagle arrived
at the home on Mitch Lane at 8:45
pm.
When Mr. Going opened the


Man says

attacker

wore mask

of 'Freddy'
A Macclenny man told police
that two men beat him with a
board May 6 at a home he was re-
novating on Quail Lane.
The 36-year-old man said he
went to the house around 10:40
pm but forgot to lock the door.
While he was replacing a door
knob in the bedroom he looked up
to see two black men standing near
him. One was wearing a "Freddy
Krueger" mask while the other had
a toboggan cap pulled over his
face.
One of the men.pull a pistol and
demanded his money.
When he said he had only a few
dollars, they began yelling at him,
telling him he was about to die.
The man in the toboggan cap
hit him the stomach with the board
and when he fell to the floor, the
man hit him on the right side of his
head.
The pair then took the man's
cell phone and house keys from
his pockets, and.his belt, then left.
The man then drove himself to .
the emergenc~room.
In other battery cases:
A scuffle in the Baker County
jail May 5 left one woman inmate
with a dislocated shoulder and an-
other facing a charge of felony
battery.
The victim said that Dejaune
Anderson pulled her off the top
bunk, causing her to land on her
should and neck.
The woman said Ms. Anderson
then began kicking her in the side.
Ms. Anderson, 32, of Macclen-
ny, told jail officers, "The [female
dog] started running her mouth so
I snatched her [buttocks] off the
bunk!"
Police filed a sworn complaint
against Ethelene Church, 39, of
Macclenny.
Another woman said Ms.
Church hit her in the face. Ms.
Church denied the allegation.

Trucker is

found dead

at rest area
A truck driver was found dead
in his cab parked at an 1-10 rest
area May 7 after trucking compa-
ny officials noticed a GPS system
hadn't showed any movement of
his truck for two days.
Leonel Castillo, 61, of Chicago'
was found lying on the floor be-
tween the seat and sleeper area of
his truck. The engine was running
and the doors unlocked.
Gene Fielder of Paschall Truck
Lines told police that the tractor
trailer activated its brakes .and
went into "lock down" on May 5
at 7:00 pm.
The company asked one of. its.
representatives to check Mr.
Castillo. He called police after
finding the driver.
Investigators found cash and
credit cards on Mr. Castillo.
Officers parked their patrol cars
around the truck to shield removal
of the body from passing motorists
and those at the rest area, which is
located of the eastbound lane of
Interstate '10 near the western
county line.


The medical examiner in Gaines-
ville was to perform an autopsy.

door, the officer smelled the strong
odor of marijuana and saw the pot
inside a clear plastic bag lying on
the table.
Mr. Going's girlfriend Teressa
Forman tried to block the officer's
view, but he told her he'd already
seen the drugs.
Further investigation turned up
13 alprazolam and three hy-
drocodone pills.
In another drug case, police is-
sued a notice to appear to Daniel
Dinkins for misdemeanor posses-
sion of marijuana.
Deputy Brad Dougherty noticed
a car pulled off CR 125 near Keith
Griffis Road at 2:45 am.
The driver, Robert Vaughn, said
he'd pulled over to let the engine
cool.
The officer noticed an open
beer sitting between the two men,
which they said belonged to Mr.
Dinkins, 21, of Macclenny.
When the men got out of the
car, the deputy saw Mr. Dinkins
shove something into his pocket. It
turned out to be a plastic bag con-
taining marijuana.
Instead of arresting Mr. Dink-
ins, the officer issued the notice to
appear because it was such a small
amount of marijuana and the men
were cooperative.


Illegal pills are

found in car

parked off road
Police arrested a Macclenny
man May 4 for felony possession
of prescription pills after his wife
had run off the road and the couple
fell asleep in their car.
James Wolfe, 54, had 97 pills in
the two bottles police found on
him.
Deputy James Parham III ar-
rived around 11:30 pm on Railroad
Street between Fifth and Sixth
streets.
He woke Mr. Wolfe and his
wife Kathryne Wolfe, who was be-
hind the wheel. The car was not
running but the headlights were
on.
While he questioned her, Dep-
uty Michael Lagle spoke with Mr.
Wolfe. She said and her husband'
were returning from Little Cae-
sar's Pizza when the car ran into
the grass and would not restart.
Mrs. Wolfe was unable to speak
clearly or pay attention to the offi-
cer, saying she'd taken some pain
pills prescribed for a broken wrist.
Deputy Lagle asked Mr. Wolfe
if he used any drugs.
"No sir, I don't drink or use
drugs because I am a retired cor-
rectional officer."
When the officer searched Mr.
Wolfe, however, he found two bot-
tles without prescription labels
containing 85 methadone pills, 11
Xanax and one dimenhydrinate.

Rain dampens
police memorial;
Thrift is added...
Circuit Judge David Glant (top photo) speaks at
the rain-dampened Police Memorial Day Service
held May 5 by the Baker County Sheriff's Office.
Filling the front rows of the audience are families
of fallen officers who worked or lived in Baker
County. Another officer's name was added to the
granite memorial in front of the Sheriff's Office
(right photo). A recent article in The Press by the
late Gene Barber told of Deputy Rufus Thrift, who
was killed during the Baxter Rebellion in 1904.
Previously, the only name on the memorial was
Morris Fish, who was killed in 1966. Cpl. James
Marker was selected Deputy of the Year (The
Morris Fish Award), and Investigator Randy
Crews and Deputy Brad Dougherty won the Joey
Burtner Award. Corrections Officer of the Year
was Jodi Dyal, and Officer of the Year in commu-
nications was Lauren Crews.


Claims girlfriend beat herself up


A Glen St. Mary man was ar-
rested May 4 for domestic vio-
lence despite his claim that his
girlfriend beat her own head and
pulled her own hair.
Randy Michaels, 30, was charg-
ed with felony aggravated battery
because the woman is pregnant.
Deputy David Morgan arrived
at the couple's home on Ivey
Hodges Road around 2:30 pm.
The woman, six months preg-
nant, said she and Mr. Michaels
were arguing when he punched her
in the left eye and dragged her


across the bedroom floor.
He then left with his brother.
S The officer noted swelling and
bruising around the woman's eye.
Mr. Michaels told Deputy Mor-
gan that he did not touch his girl-
friend, that she went crazy and
started beating her head and
pulling her hair. He said she threw
a lamp at him.
The officer did rot find his
statements to be credible, especial-
ly because there was no broken
lamp in the home.
He also dismissed the brother's


claim that Mr. Michaels "did not
touch her."
In another domestic violence
case, police filed'a battery charge
against Jame Thompson for grab-
bing a woman by the hair and
punching her in the face.
Mr. Thompson, 19, has a child
with the woman.
The incident occurred on Low-
der Street at 4:22 pm. Police were
unable to locate him, so filed the
charge with the state attorney.

A Macclenny man arrested on
an outstanding warrant May 3 also
was charged with possession of
marijuana after trying to take it in-
to the jail.
Charles Bailey, 43, was wanted
for violation of probation when
Deputy Sgt. James Nickles went to
his home on Deerwood Circle
around 10:53 am.
Mr. Bailey asked if he could
take clothing and toiletries with
him to jail.
The officer saw him pack an or-
ange prescription bottle, assuming
it was medication.
It was, but during a search at
the jail, it turned out there was a
partially smoked marijuana ciga-
rette, stems and shake in the bottle
along with anti-depressant medica-
tion.
In addition to possession, he
was charged with smuggling con-
traband into a detention facility.

Glen plants palms on center island
Glen St. Mary began this week a landscaping project at the center island of CR 125 in front
of town hall and Celebration Park first planting six cabbage palm trees. The project by
Ron Morgan and Scott Davis of Davey Tree Company in Jacksonville was supervised by
Dr. Kyle Brown (right) of Glen, a retired professor of horticulture at Lake City Community
College, one of several volunteers who offered their services to the town. Dr. Brown said in
coming weeks additional plantings will be added, all designed for low maintenance and
drought resistance.


City taking applications

for vacated board seat


Wanting to avoid two elections
this summer, the Macclenny Com-
mission decided May 10 to take
applications to temporarily fill the
seat left vacant by the resignation
of Commissioner B.J. Cannon.
The city charter states the com-
mission can make an appointment
or hold an election, but the seat
can not remain \ vacant more than
120 days. The next regular elec-
tion is September 6, 132 days from
the April 27 resignation date.
The appointee will hold office a
couple of months, then will h: e
to run on the September ballot,
and again in two years.
Steve Jones, who with Tommn
Rollins has been attending recent
meetings, indicated he will pick up
an application. City Manager Ger-
ald Dopson said the documents
will be available Thursday morn-
ing.
The deadline for submission of
an application and resume will be
May 28. Applicants should specify
qualifications, a statement of why
they want to be a commissioner,
and what goals they have for the
city.
Hoping to avoid the coin toss
that gave Mr. Cannon the position
over Linda Williams, Mayor Gary
Dopson said he would like a fifth
person to help vote on the appli-
cants. In January 2002, both Mr.
Cannon and Ms. Williams got two
votes apiece after board members
reviewed the applications.
Mayor Gary Dopson said he
was "shocked" at news accounts
of Mr. Cannon's criticism of build-
ing inspector Claude Bagwell.
"I feel he's the best thing that's
happened to this city. Nothing
about this shakes my confidence in
him. I've not had a single com-
plaint about him before this."
Mr. Cannon said he listened on
his back porch and surmised that
too few nails were being put in
shingles at the Forest Park subdi-
vision across SR 121 North from
his Eloise Street home.
But his claim of finding at least
half a dozen during an on-roof in-
spection was countered by Mr.
Bagwell's recollection of finding
only two and Maronda Homes
construction 'supervisor Jeff Bain
recalled only one.
Others also took the opportunity
to voice support for Mr. Bagwell:
Engineer Frank Darabi, who
said he recommended Mr. Bagwell
for the job. "You can't go count
every nail, on shingles or anything
else. You have to rely on the integ-
rity of the builder, and substandard
construction will show itself very
quickly."
Commissioner Vernon Ben-
nett, who said he will remain
friends with his 20-year neighbor
Mr. Cannon.
"I hate what happened, but


9


there are ways to get things done
and ways not to. You can use hon-
ey to get bees or vinegar to run
them off. I support Mr. Bagwell
100%."
Maronda Homes division man-
ager for sales Paul Stern lamented
the "bad publicity that will call in-
to question our integrity.

money until next March. So you
have two budget years to save up
the gas tax money," explained Jo-
seph Wells of the Jordan and
Associates grant administration
firm.
Mr. Wells' spending prediction
takes the commission into the 2006-
07 fiscal year. The county is set to
pay off a paving bond this year,
and had been considering a new
ten year loan.
But as County Attorney Terry
Brown pointed out, "This way, you
get more than a million dollars
worth of paving for $350,000. Do
the math the cash less labor costs
including salaries and benefits."
Road Superintendent Robert
Fletcher asked the board to pledge
cash on the application.
"It's hard to commit the labor,
not knowing what the weather will
be then," he reasoned.
If the Florida Department of
Community Affairs later refuses to
approve a change order to use in-
kind labor, Mr. Fletcher said, "It
just means we'll be able to do more
paving."
A cost estimate list from the
county's engineering consultant
Darabi and Associates of Gaines-
ville indicates the most likely roads

to be paved if the grant is approv-
ed:
Deerfield Circle, .8 mile
Southwood Road, .4 mile
Clayton Avenue, .25 mile
Camphor Road, .45 mile
Deerwood Circle, .6 mile
Rufus Powers Road, .4 mile
Materials would run $424,452
for those six segments, with engi-
neering, labor and equipment to be
added. The estimate dated May 7
advises that construction cost and
asphalt prices in general are in-
creasing at an alarming rate. It also
recommends at least 10% contin-
gencies on the price and advises
against over-promising on pro-
jects.
The listed roads have all been
determined eligible under CDBG's
requirement that at least 51% of
the residents be low to moderate
income.
Several other roads could be
substituted if problems develop -
for instance, adjacent owners un-
willing to donate needed right of
way: Hid Dugger, Tom Wilkerson,
Eddy Grade; Aspen, Blue Hole,
Hassie Johns and Pine Top roads
are still on the list, but may not be
income eligible.
Deemed ineligible were Chest-
nut, Chestnut, Harley Thrift, Tim
Crews, East Confederate and South-
ern States Nursery roads.

Marriage is anything

but old fashioned


PENSEE
CHERYL PINGEL

Simon Cowell has become quite
well known in America. He is the
opinionated, often rude judge on
American Idol.
Recently, TV Guide published an
interview during which he was ask-
ed by Mary Murphy to describe
his relationship with girlfriend Ter-
ri Seymour, and whether there were
any marriage plans.
He responded, "Marriage is old
fashioned unless you have kids.
You have to take the view that if
you are having a great time you
stay together, and when you are
not it is time to end it."
He doesn't seem alone in that
philosophy. Many Americans,
from the famous like Oprah Win-
frey to what seems like at least
half the younger generation, have
opted to live together rather than
marry. Some use the rationaliza-
tion they are making a trial run be-
fore "tying the knot." But others
have no intention of walking down
the aisle.
I suppose you could call mar-
riage "old-fashioned" if the con-
cept of commitment is no longer
significant, if making and keeping
promises no longer has value, and
if becoming truly intimate with an-
other could actually be achieved
with "great times" alone. In reality,
none of these is true.
Commitment is still a very val-
ued idea in our culture. The legal
system revolves around it. We want
commitment so badly, little is ac-
complished in most business ar-
rangements without some type of
written contract. We want to know
the person from whom we pur-
chase an item or service has a
commitment to our satisfaction,
safety and privacy. We demand
those who violate their commit-
ments be held accountable. There.
is definitely nothing old-fashioned
about commitment.
We learn early the concept of

promises. As children we construct
elaborate ways to make promises
more binding. Rituals like "pinky
swears" or "cross my heart and
hope to die" provided added assur-
ance a promise made would be
kept. If you think promises are old
fashioned, do a word search on the
web. Mine yielded 260,732,306
selections.
Think the desire for intimacy is
old-fashioned? The same type of
web search yielded 244,930,913
selections containing that concept.
Intimacy is more than sexual. It is
knowing another individual com-
pletely, the good and the bad, and
continuing to love him or her,
wrinkles, warts and quirks. Intima-
cy can't be achieved without com-
mitment, because it involves work,
dedication and exclusivity.
I've been privileged to know
couples who've been married over
50 years and one who had been
married over 60 years before being
parted by death. They are a delight
to watch as they know each other
so well. They would be the first to
tell you they didn't get that way by
taking the view "if you are having
a great, time you stay together, and
when you are not it is time to end
it." They will tell you the difficul-
ties and the times they thought
about leaving one another. They
will tell you what it means to find
true intimacy by becoming part of
one another.
Is marriage old-fashioned? If it
is, maybe it is like old-fashioned
ice cream: richer, sweeter, and de-
sired because the ingredients are
pure, and the slow lengthy churn-
ing blends them so completely.

Until the Fat Lady Sings
OBSERVATIONS BY BOB GERARD


Unless you had money on a
horse at the Kentucky Derby,
you've got to be shaking your
head in glee that Giacomo won the
run for the roses.
We Americans love long shots,
and there is nothing more heart-
warming for us than a 50-1 long-
shot winning it all. Add the fact
that a 72-1 shot was second, and
you have a Kentucky Derby insid-
ers call the most bizarre of all.
This is not Seabiscuit we're talk-
ing about here. This is a horse that
probably shouldn't have even been
in the field. He won only one race
leading up to the Derby, and on the
rare occasions his owners were
asked about him by the media,
they said things like, "He has
-room -to- provee"
Room to improve. Sounds about
right. He chose probably the best
time ever to decide to show he had
quality.
Not only are his owners now
millionaires who are turning up on
talk shows, they have a Derby
winner in their stable. That's like a
Super Bowl win or an NBA cham-
pionship. Not too shabby for a
horse with room to improve.
What is surprising, besides the
fact that a 50-1 horse won and a
72-1 horse was second, was the fa-
vorites, all self-destructed.
pne of the favorites was sev-
enth and another was 19th in a 20-


horse field. It was as if some giant
reverse button was hit somewhere
and the field flipped' from front to
back and back to front.
Nick Zito, \\ho trained five of
the favorites. was flabbergasted,
but isn't all that worried about Gi-
acomo's chances in the Preakness.
Instead of looking at the horses~,
it might be a better idea to look to
the heavens and see how all the
stars and planets are aligned.
The stars and planets were cer-
tainly aligned for Steve Nash, the
Phoenix Suns point guard who de-
feated Shaquille O'Neal for the
NBA's most valuable player in one
of the closest voting ever.
It was the first time in 20 years
a point guard has won the award.
It was also a very surprising
vote in that Nash is not one of the


FOR STRUCTURED SETTLEMENTS,
ANNUITIERPEMSan~d INSUAC PAYUT


flashier point guards. His specialty
is not scoring as.,much as playmak-
ing.
The Canadian was born into a
family of professional soccer play-
ers and is as athome bouncing a
ball off his knees or head, as he is
knocking down a 20-foot jumper.
Nash credits his soccer skills with
his wide variety of unusual passes..
Nash has helped lead the Suns
into the semifinals of the Western
Conference playoffs.
It would be a nice capper if he
could add an NBA championship
ring to his repertoire.

Dear Brandi Crews,
It is my first

that looks just like me.
A son my name to carry on
a part of me, when I'm gone.
Someone to share a fishing trip,
make a kit or toy ship.
Our President he just might be
a hero for all to see.
The nurse has brought
the babe to me.
The blanket's pink, it cannot be.
I told myself she's erred, I'm
sure.
Then I saw my daughter,
sweet & pure.
I fell in love with her that day
& thoughts of a boyjust went
away.
There's nothing in this whole
wide world to take the place
of Daddy's girl.
I love you, Daddy

YMCA's spring soccer league winds up Saturday...
This game between the Tomcats and Lizards two weekends ago was among the final contests in the Baker Family Y's eight-game spring
soccer season that ended a six week season May 7 with a cookout and awards. The teams do not keep score, and all participants get into
the games. League coordinator James Thomas said registration for the fall season begins at the end of July. Games are played at the Y
fields offLowder St. in south Macclenny on Saturdays and Tuesdays. Watch for fall sign-up times in the YMCA bulletin board published on
the sports pages of The Press.



'Re-ff not worth it, says engineer


The proposed saving of $6000
per year is not enough to justify re-
financing the remaining 20 years
of a bond issue and a loan, espe-
cially if it antagonizes the US De-
partment of Agriculture, the Mac-
clenny Commission decided May
10.
The point was made by engi-
neer Frank Darabi, whose remarks
came in counterpoint to those of
Bill Spivey of Kirkpatrick, Pettis,
an investment banking firm.
Mr: Darabi fretted as Mr. Spi-
vey made his pitch for a "letter of
engagement" to study the proposal
further. "No, no, no," Mr. Darabi
kept saying, waiting his turn to re-
but the idea.
Mr. Spivey said his original re-
search indicated up to $150,000


savings over the 20 years until the -
1996 bond issue and 1997 USDA
loan are paid off. He said the inter-
est market has dipped, so current
savings are projected at only
$117,000.
"Absolutely no. USDA has giv-
en us grants in the past, up to 50-
60%, and we want to be in posi-


tion to get them m the future," Mr.
Darabi argued.
"I don't want to spend $1500
for the study to find out if this will
work. We've got a lot of irons in
the fire right now, and don't have
the time or personnel to work on
this," concluded Commissioner
Vernon Bennett.
