City wants $3000


impact fee, cools


to one for schools


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
Macclenny officials gave pre-
liminary approval to a $3000 im-
pact fee for new residential con-
struction Tuesday night, then asked
the city attorney to determine
whether they could legally refuse
to enact a fee for the Baker County
School Board.
Through informal discussions,
school district representatives have
asked the city to assess and collect
an impact fee for education.
County commissioners have al-
ready tentatively agreed to do so,
although the school board has yet
to propose an amount.
"We have never been involved in
their funding process and I don't
want to be involved now unless it's
mandated," said Mayor Gary Dop-
son.
"What statute prevents the
school board from assessing arid
collecting its own fees? I'd 'like to
have more details on that."
City attorney Frank Maloney
said he'll issue an opinion letter be-
fore the commission's next meet-
ing, which is November 8.
Commissioner Vernon Bennett
said he will vote against imple-
menting a fee for the school board
"unless someone can show me dif-
ferent."
He also railed against the district
for not sending someone to the city
meeting. Earlier in the week, a
school board representative indicat-
ed someone would be there.
City manager Gerald Dopson
said he was told they all had con-
flicts, to which Commissioner Ben-
nett replied incredulously, '...they
have an assistant superintendent,
principals and administrators...
somebody can be here to represent
the school board."
The commission's reluctance to
enact an education impact.fee was
apparently fueled by the belief the
city would have to lower its fee.
"I'm not in favor of cutting this
back just to add the school board,"
Mr. Dopson said. "Our responsibil-
ity is here, to the people of Mac-
clenny."


Impact fees, levied on new con-
struction, are intended to help pay
for the additional roads, schools,
police and fire services needed to
accommodate growth.
There are rules governing when,
where and how much can be spent,
and the fees must be justifiable.
Consultant Frank Darabi of
Gainesville recommended an iden-
tical amount of $2777 for the city,
county and Glen St. Mary.
County commissioners, howev-
er, decided to forego his sugges-
tion, and tentatively approved a fee
of $1500. The Town of Glen is in-
cluded in the county's ordinance.
The school board's consultant
said the district could justify a fee
of up to $5068, but in informal dis-
cussions members have contem-
plated $1000.
While the city's impact fee will
be apportioned among transporta-
tion, law enforcement, emergency
services, fire servicesanid' recre-
ation, the county's $1500 fee is all
for transportation, and the school
board's would be of course for edu-
cation, such as new schools and
buses.
Mr. Maloney will draft an ordi-
nance incorporating the $3000 im-
pact fee approved Tuesday night,
then forward it to Mr. Darabi for
vetting. The city must hold two
readings of the proposed ordinance
at least ten days apart.
Officials will likely schedule a
special meeting in order to pass the
fee as quickly as possible.
The $3000 fee is about 10 per-
cent higher than Mr. Darabi's rec-
ommendation, the difference being
an increased amount for emergency
services, from $300 to $464, and a
$59 administrative fee.
In addition to the residential fee,
the commission set prices for other
types of development. Hotels and
motels will be assessed $588 per
room, hospitals and nursing homes
$735 per bed, and office buildings,
commercial and industrial will be
$1.18 per square'foot.
Commissioners are seeking a
:way to prevent a run on building
permits to beat enactment of the or-
dinance.

J.dodi will not reduce bond for


physician on molestation count


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
A Macclenny physician was ar-
rested October 21 on three counts,
of sexual battery, one day after a
female patient secretly videotaped
him molesting her inside his exam
room.
Adel Hassan Regaila, 36, is be-
ing held in Baker County jail in
lieu of $1 million bail on the felony
charges.
At Dr. Regaila's first court ap-
pearance Friday afternoon, assis-
tant state attorney J. Melton Bes-
singer Jr. asked for high bail be-
cause the Egyptian physician was a
potential flight risk.
"I'm concerned he is not a U.S.
citizen... and he presumably has
some financial resources," the pro-
secutor told County Judge Joey
Williams.
Dr. Regaila, a board-certified in-
ternist, is in this country legally on
a work visa. He told the judge he's
been in Florida for three months,
but that his wife lives in New Jer-
sey. :


County's 'haunted' old jail may


be target of 'paranormal' probe

This Halloween thousands of
people will stuff themselves into,
costumes of all makes and models,
consume vast quantities of candy,
and purposely go out of their way
to be frightened.
Baker County is no exception to
this rule, as evidenced by the
numerous events taking place this
week. One such annual event is the
haunted jail sponsored by the
Baker County Historical Society. It

High School will have a dazzling
array of the bizarre and the fright-
ening, but that is nothing compared
to the reality of the hauntings that
continue to add color and interest
to Baker County.
One such haunting includes the
old jail and the former courthouse,
now the current library, which sit
side-by-side on Mclver St in the
core area of Macclenny.
Reports of doors slamming,
creaking floorboards and mysteri-
ous footsteps are only some of the
reported incidents at the old jail
and the former courthouse.
The phenomenon has attracted
the attention of several national
ghost-hunting groups, who have
been considering an investigation
of the old jail.

Jason Beasley lives in Macclenny,
did a preliminary investigation of
the old jail on Friday October 14.
The three-member team set up
still and video cameras in the dark-
ened two-story former cellblock
and recorded for six hours.
Their initial findings did not
yield any significant phenomenon,
but that has not deterred other
groups from their interest in Baker
County and its haunted population.
"The sheer fact that the jail has
remained virtually untouched in
some areas makes this a good place
to investigate," says Matt Ferrell, a
lead investigator for the North
Florida Paranormal Research
group.

Judge Williams found $1 million
bail to be "reasonable at this time."
He also granted the state's re-
quest that the doctor surrender his
passport, remain in Florida, refrain
from practicing medicine and have
no contact with the victim.
Circuit Judge David Giant on
Monday denied Mr. Regaila's mo-
tion to lower the bail.
The judge assigned a public de-
fender to represent the doctor, who
said he had no money to hire a pri-
vate attorney.
Spencer Mann, a spokesman for
the state attorney's office, said Mr.
Regaila's citizenship is not a factor
in his prosecution.
"Upon conviction, he would be'
jailed here. We would notify'the
[U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services], then after his release the
federal government would decide
whether to deport him,"
Sheriff's investigators arrested.
Mr. Regaila around 3:00 pm in the
parking lot behind his office on
South Fifth Street.
He had been in Jacksonville, but'
investigators reportedly asked an-


other doctor in his office to call
him to Macclenny under the pretext
that he was needed at the local of-
fice.
Dr. Regaila lives on Hodges
Boulevard and has staff privileges
at St. Vincent's Medical Center in
Jacksonville.
Investigators were parked near-
by when he pulled into the lot,
which faces Railroad Ave.
Even before the physician exited
his car, Sheriff Joey Dobson and
about half a dozen officers had
converged on him.
He offered no resistance as they
arrested him and took him to jail.
The case began October 4 when
the 48-year-old Sanderson woman
went to the home of sheriff's inves-
tigator Gerald Ray Rhoden to re-
port that her doctor had improperly
touched her during an exam.
The Press is not identifying the
woman because of the nature of the
crime.

10 yearprobation
to couple who spent
FEMA'money

BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
The Macclenny woman who
spent more than half of $66,000 ac-
cidentally transferred from a credit
union into her checking account
was sentenced to ten years proba-
tion Monday.
Monica Stegall, who told inves-
tigators she thought the money was
from FEMA, the federal emer-
gency aid agency, pled no contest
to grand theft.
Circuit Judge David Giant also
sentenced her to 50 hours of com-
munity. service and ordered her to
write a leer of apology to' Vystar
Credit Union.
Dontrell Wright, Ms. Stegall's sig-
nificant other, was given an identi-
cal sentence.
Together they must repay the
credit union $37,367. They made a
$10,000 payment Monday and
must pay $350 monthly, according
to court records.
The pair were arrested October
28 last year, then released on their
own recognizance.
Five weeks earlier, an accoun-
tant at Vystar's corporate office in
Jacksonville misdirected a wire
transfer into Ms. Stegall's checking
account on September 22.
Her balance immediately went
from $6.30 to $66,265.
By that afternoon, Ms. Stegall
and Mr. Wright began a spending
spree that didn't end until Vystar of-
ficials discovered the mistake and
froze her account September 29.
Ms. Stegall, 25, told credit union
collectors that "the money was
from FEMA because I applied on-
line."
Asked what she did with the
large amounts of cash she with-
drew, she replied, "It was God-sent,
so I gave most of it to charity."
Finally, she told them that she is
a poor black woman and God
would not let anything happen to
her because she had no way to pay
the money back.
KevinOwens, Vystar security
manager, reported the incident to
police October 6.
Ms. Stegall began drawing the
money from her account at 2:57
'pm September 22 when she got
$400 from an automated teller ma-
chine, then $10,000 from a teller,
credit union officials told police.
Later, she used her ATM card to
make a $408 purchase at Goldfin-
ger Jewelry in Jacksonville, then
$60 at Normandy Beauty.
The next day, it was $1224 at
Big Chief Tire and another $10,000
from a teller.
The following day, Ms. Stegall
withdrew cash to purchase two
cashier's checks for $1100 and
$6820 inside the credit union,
which is located on South Sixth
Street in front of Wal-Mart.
Security cameras recorded her
making the transactions.

Meanwhile, cameras at ATMs
photographed Mr. Wright, 29, with-
drawing money from Ms. Stegall's

Doctor

in jail for

molesting

a patient..

(From page one)
Rhoden turned the case over to fel-
low investigator Mike Combs.
Both visited the woman at her
home October 6.
The woman, who was visibly up-
set when she spoke with Investiga-
tor Rhoden, said she v. as prompted
to report the incident by her phar-
macist.
She'd gone to Wihn Dixie to fill
prescriptions Dr. Regaila had giv-
en her.'Without going into detail,
she told the pharmacist what had
happened.
The pharmacist confirmed the
story when contacted by Investiga-
tor Combs.
The victim said Dr. Regaila has
been treating 'her about four
months for nerve and knee prob-
lems as well as fibromyalgia syn-
drome, a disorder that causes pain
and fatigue in muscles, ligaments
and tendons.
Neither the cause nor the cure is
known.
The woman told investigators
the doctor would hug her and kiss
her on the cheek when she went in
for her twice-a-month appoint-
ments, but that it wasn't of a sexti-
al nature. She did say, however,
that she'd joked with her sister and
mother that he had a crush on her.
That changed during her Octo-
ber 4 visit.
He had her lean across an exam
table so he could check her back,
then asked if he could undo her
bra in order to check more thor-
oughly.
She agreed, then pulled down
her pants slightly when he asked.
However, he pulled them farther,
down to her thighs.
As he was rubbing her back,
she heard him unzip his pants then
press against her, apparently trying
to penetrate her.
She stood up and heard him zip
his pants.
Dr. Regaila left the room to get
sleeping pills the woman had re-
quested. She also asked him to
double her pain medication, which
he did. He prescribed Valium, an
anti-anxiety drug and Lortab, a
pain reliever similar to codeine,
but did not write her a prescription

for methadone, which she had
asked for.
When he came back to the ex-
am room, he sat in' a chair facing
her and took her hands in his, but
then placed them on his crotch.
She quickly pulled away, and he
asked it he could-give her a quick
"anal exam."
When she said no, he asked if
he could do a "vaginal exam." She
declined.
He then asked if he could give
her an "oral exam." Again, no.
Finally, he squeezed her breast
and told her she had a good heart.
Upon leaving the,office, she
was so upset she was unable to tell
her sister what had happened until
they were nearly to Winn Dixie.
For her next scheduled visit on
October 17, investigators equipped
her with audio and visual record-
ing devices.
'Dr. Regaila said and did nearly
the identical things as the previous
visit.
Investigators were listening out-
side the office in a vehicle as it
happened, but the recording equip-
ment failed.
The woman insisted on going
again, telling police she didn't
want it to happen to other women.
She went back three days later.
The videotape shows him doing
a vaginal exam by pulling her un-
derwear to the side. He was not
wearing gloves, and in none of the
incidents was a nurse or assistant
present in the examination room,
as is accepted practice.
Afterward, he told her to bend


over the exam table, then lifted her
dress and pulled down her under-
wear. He is seen unzipping his
pants and apparently exposing his
penis, which he pressed against
her from behind and began simu-
lating sexual intercourse., He
grabbed her breasts while doing it.
Later, he could de seen expos-
ing himself again, then asking the
woman, "What do you think? Do
you want to touch it?"
Dr. Regaila, who has been prac-
ticing medicine for nearly five
years, received his MD in 1994
from Ain Shams Uni\ersit) in
Cairo. Eg\pt.
From December 2000 to June
2005, he worked as a resident at
hospitals in Pennsylvania, New
Jersey and Ohio.
In addition to Florida, he is li-
censed to practice medicine in
Ohio and is board certified in in-
ternal .medicine.
According to the Florida De-
partment of Health website, the
suspect has no criminal history, no
disciplinary actions, has never
been asked to resign from any
medical staff, and has no reported
liability action exceeding $100,-
000.
All but the final item are self-
reported.

Stupid jur acted


faster than the FBI


on cop abuse case


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Commentary
So which is it?
Do we have a couple of sadistic
rogue cops who dispense their owr
form of justice, beating innocent
defenseless Baker Countians?
Or do. we have two law enforce
ment officers who put themselves
on the line protecting us against
drug-and-alcohol-fueled scum-
bags?
We know what a Baker County
jury thought.
We're still waiting for an FBI in-
vestigator to tell us what she thinks.
I'll get to those folks in a min-
ute, but first a little background.
Sheriff's deputies Charles Ross
and Darrin Whitaker went to Mac's
Liquors in March to arrest Michael
Earl Harvey on a couple of felony
warrants.
Mr. Harvey has an extensive
criminal history and is not the type
of guy you'd want your daughter to
marry.
And Mac's Liquors is not the
place you'd want to hold the recep-
tion.
In an admitted attempt to escape,
Mr. Harvey unloaded on the offi-
cers.
It became a struggle that Deputy
Ross said was the most violent he'd
ever been involved in.
Eventually they got Mr. Harvey
.under control, but in the process
whacked him on the head several
times with flashlights they were
carrying in their hands. He needed
20 staples to-close the cuts on his
scalp.
Mr. Harvey testified in court that
he did nothing to provoke the offi-
cers, that they just started wailing
on him for no reason.
As a result of the scuffle, Mr.
Harvey was charged with two
counts of battery on a law enforce-
ment officer and resisting arrest
'with violence.
In turn, he filed a civil rights
complaint with the FBI, claiming
police brutality.
As slow as the criminal justice
system can be sometimes, this was
not one of those times.
His trial was held October 15,
about seven months after the inci-
dent.,
And that brings us to the three
men and three women who sat in
judgment of Mr. Harvey, and in a,
sense, of the deputies as well.
It was an opportunity to send a
message saying we stand behind
our police officers and recognize
they have perhaps the most difficult
job in a civilized society.
Most of us are appalled, and
sometimes frightened, if we even
occasionally cross paths with the
dirtbags, lowlifes and losers of this
world.
That's what police officers face
every time they go to work.
That's not to say they should have
free reign. In fact, they should be
held to a higher standard of con-
duct, because if the lawmen are
lawless, then our civilized society
is in trouble.
The key distinction is the con-
text of their actions.

If a cop abuses his power, takes
bribes or hurts people, etc., in a de-
liberate and calculated way, I say
c punish him worse than you would a
n typical criminal.
However, in the heat of the mo-
ment, when an officer has to react
quickly, and does so in a way that
s may not be exactly by the book,
t give him the benefit of the doubt.
Don't sit back and second guess
his split-second actions from the
comfort of your home or office br
bar.
Orjury box.
I'm not sure what those six ju-
rors were thinking if they were
Thinking at all when they acquit-
led Mr. Harvey on the two counts
of battery on an officer.
However, they found him guilty
of resisting arrest with violence.
On the face of it. that's a ridicu-
lous and indefensible verdict.
Reasonable people can examine
the same evidence and reach differ-
ent conclusions, but these six peo-
ple reached a decision that just
doesn't make sense.
How can Mr. Harvey have re-
sisted the officers "with \ violence "
and yet not have committed battery
on them. Battery is simply "un-
wanted touching."
What kind of "- violence" did he
do without touching them?
Did he yell at them? Flip them
the bird? Stick out his tongue?
-I have two theories.
First, the jurors were dumb. (Re-
minds me of that old joke about not
wanting to be judged by people too
stupid not to get out of jury duty.)
Second, they wanted to get out
of the courthouse. It was approach-
ing 5:00 pm, and maybe they had
Sto get home to cook dinner. Or eat
dinner. Or maybe they wanted to
make happy hour at Pop's Place.
Whatever the reason, they
screwed up.
Which brings us to the FBI.
The criminal case has come and
gone as has the sheriff's internal
investigation but the feds are'still
dithering.
What's taking so long?
At trial, there were only two wit-
nesses called other than the
deputies and Mr. Harvey.
So it's taken seven months -and
still counting to interview five
people, review the medical records
whichh were given to the FBI in-
vestigator within a few days of the
incident, and ... and ... :hat else?
Analyze the Zapruder Tape for pos-
sible clues?
An FBI spokesman said Tuesday
that the investigation is still a prior-
ity.
That's comforting. Imagine how
long it would take if it wasn't a pri-
ority.
By then, Mr. Haryvy will have
served his 10 years in prison, got-
ten out, and been back at Mac's
,drinking a beer.
The deputies probably will be
retired.
And the jurors would be senile
instead of stupid.

The 'real scop' on Miers and DeLay.


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER


Your intrepid investigative jour-
nalist has once again dipped deep
into the waters of the news head-
lines to pull stories and look at
them in my slightly skewed way. I
don't guarantee it's the whole truth
and nothing but the truth, but this is
politics and journalism we're talk-
ing about.
Embattled Congressman Tom
DeLay, who has been indicted by
the state of Texas for money laun-
dering and collecting illegal cam-
paign contributions, wants to
change the venue of his trial
At present, the congressman is
set to begin trial soon in Austin,
Texas. The Republican congress-
man doesn't like Austin, which is a
Democratic stronghold, and doesn't
like the judge who is also a Demo-
crat.
He wants to change the trial to a'
Republican part of the state and get
a judge who is a Republican.


There's no telling whether he'll be
successful.
But of course, this is America,
land of equal justice under the law.
I'm sure some guy who had broken
into a convenience store and stole
$40 and a case of Pabst Blue Rib-
bon could get the venue and the
judge changed because they didn't
share his political viewpoints:
I've heard the Congressman
would like to move the trial to the
president's hometown of Crawford,
Texas and have judge Eddie
"Hang-em high" Bush IV presid-
ing.
Great idea! Bush IV, who's most
high profile case involved prose-
cuting a male building inspector
who liked to work in a sun dress
and a red wig and call himself Lo-
la, says he's ready for the job.
"I'll give Tommy the fairest
judging I know how," said Bush IV.
Sadaam Hussein, emboldened
by Tom DeLay's move to change
venues and judges, plans to attempt
to move his trial from Baghdad.to
Paradise Island, Grand Bahamas.
"I like the climate and that reg-
gae music," Sadaam is quoted as
saying. He's also trying to delay the

trial until Harriet Miers is con-
firmed to the Supreme Court. Hus-
sein wants her as his judge. He
thinks someone with Miers' experi-
ence would be "perfect" for his
case.
There may be a glitch in the
madman dictator's plan, however.
The president is considering
pulling his nomination of Ms.
Miers to the US Supreme Court to
replace Justice Sandra Day O'Con-
nor.
Miers has no legal experience
and has been boning up for her job
on the Supreme Court by reading
Supreme Court Judging for Dum-
mies and Cliff's Notes on being a
Supreme Court justice.
The president wants to make
sure he nominates a woman for the
highest court in the land, but also
wants someone who follows his
forward-thinking judicial policies.
At first he was quoted as consider-
ing "that guy from that show, Texas
Justice," but he was "a guy," so the
president is instead planning to
name Judge Judy.
"Judge Judy has lots of experi-
ence and is a hard-nosed judge,"
said the president. She's not from

Texas, but you can't have every-
thing."
When asked about the possibili-
ty of naming his cousin, Eddie
"Hang-em high" Bush IV to the
post, he stated, "He's probably
gonna be busy with this Tom De-
Lay business."
Despite claims to the contrary,
President Bush does not, in fact,
plan to name Dr. Ben Bernanke to
replace Alan Greenspan to head up
the Federal Reserve. The president
plans to pull Bernanke's name.
He has decided to stay much
closer to home in naming the head
of.this crucial post that decides in-
terest rates and such to be absolute-
ly sure he has someone in place
who will follow his forward-think-
ing economic plans.
The president plans to name his
cousin Ludlow "Bubba" Bush III
of Crawford, Texas, to the post.
Bush III is a used-car salesman
and part-time tax preparer at Bub-
ba's Auto Sales and Income Tax
Mart. When reached for comment
about his promotion to head of the
Federal Reserve, Bubba was quot-
ed as saying, "Cool. Does this
mean I get to count the money?"
Bubba's first plan as Fed chief is
to push for placing the picture of
George Bush, Sr. on the $50 bill
and George, Jr. on the $20.
"Who remembers US Grant and
Andrew Jackson anyhow?" said
Bush III.
Finally, indictments are expected
any day in the case of the White
House leak that revealed the identi-
ty of secret CIA agent Judith
Miller.,
Opponents of the president
claim his chief of staff Carl Rove
ma\ have had a hand in leaking her
name to journalist Tom Novak (al-

though why they didn't leak the
name to me, I'll never know). It is
illegal to identify a CIA agent, be-
cause it could endanger their life
and the lives of the people they
work with in foreign countries.
Another prominent name inthe
case is Lewis Libby, chief of staff
to the vice president. Some people
claim Vice President Cheney
leaked the name to Libby, who dis-
cussgdt wii,.~..R9 eaand it subse-
quently was leaked to the press.
in my role as investigative jour-
nalist, I have utterly poked holes in
that theory and saved the president
and vice president's top aides from
indictment.
For that to have happened, the
vice president would have had,to
have been in his office in Washing-
ton, D. C. Think about it, folks.
Nobody.has seen' hide nor hair Of
the vice president in over four
years.
He's been hidden in his secure
location in a bunker under a bowl-
ing alley in Jackson Hole, Wyo-
ming since the Sept; 11, 2001
tragedy. There's no way he could
have leaked anything to anybody
except the delivery boy from
Boston Market who brings him
baked chicken and stuffed potatoes.
There you have it, all the news
that's fit to print. You've heard it
here first.

similar types of settings have
yielded good results over a period
,of time."
,These results usually include
EVP (electronic voice phenome-
non) where the actual voices of the
departed are captured on tape.
Ferrell stated that genuine EVP
would be enough to warrant an
ongoing investigation in the
future.
Most paranormal authorities
Agree that traumatic events can
'anchor' a spirit to a place, causing
a recurring or residual haunting to
occur. In these instances, the spirit
continues to replay certain events
from their lifetime.
Experts believe that spirits who
have not had traumatic circum-
stances surrounding their deaths
often choose to remain in the
places where they were the happi-
est and around the people theN
loved the most.
Other haunted areas in Mac-
clenny include many of the his-
tdric downtown buildings, all
sporting their own creepy tales of
the unexplained, of missing
objects, of "hair on the back of the
neck" moments.
The Baker County Press office
is not exempt from this link to its
ghostly past. Reportedly, the build-.
ing's former tenant was the owner
of the building when it \\as a gro-
cery store back in the 1900's.
SLegend has it a man was shot
dead during a card game. and lies
buried under the concrete floor.
Visitors to the building's second
floor have reported feeling eerie or
a "presence" but none of the of-
fice's current occupants has ever
seen an apparition or heard susp-
cious sounds.
The staff says it doesn't mind
the presence of a ghost, as long as,
he doesn't interfere with the dead-
line.
Other events taking place this
week are of less spooky fare w ith
festivities kicking off on Saturdax
the 29th beginning at 10:00 am at.
Baker County Middle School.
The Macclenny Fire Depart-
ment is also sponsoring a haunted


affair October 27-31 beginning at
3:00 pm. Proceeds will go toward
the Toys for Tots campaign.
The Old Jail Haunted House
has an entry fee of $5.00 per per-
son. Proceeds will go the restora-
- tion effort and to support the
SHistory Club.
Historical Society volunteers
are urging everyone to come early,
as this is a popular event.

Ten days after a Baker County
jury found him guilty of violently
resisting arrest, Michael Earl Har-
vey was sentenced to ten years in
prison by Circuit Judge David
Giant.
He must serve at least five years
of the sentence because he is a
prison release re-offender. The
judge also found him to be a habit-
ual felony offender.
Mr. Harvey, of Macclenny, has
a dozen felony convictions.
On October 15, a three-woman,
three-man jury spent less than an
hour deliberating before finding
him guilty of resisting an officer
with violence, but acquitted him
on two counts of battery on a law.

Mr. Harvey,who was wanted
on two felony arrest warrants. \was
drinking at Mac's Liquors on
March 19 when deputies Charles


told he was in the bar.
Deputy Ross went inside while
Deputy Whitaker waited outside-
the door.
Mr. Harvey. complied as he was
arrested and the officer led him out
of the bar. ., .
When they stepped through the
door, however, Mr; Harvey hit
Deputy Whitaker in the chest and
tried to run, according to the offi-
cers.
Deputy Ross, who was holding
Mr. Harvey's wrist with one hand
and carrying a flashlight in the
other, said he instinctively swung
at Mr. Harvey as he lunged toward
Deputy W\hitaker.
Deputy Ross hit him on the
back of the head with the flash-
light.
He then grabbed Mr. Harke\.

him slightly off the ground.

At that point, Deputy Whitaker
regained his balance and rushed
Mr. Harvey.
He tried to hit him with a dis-
abling blow to the neck that would
have rendered his arm momentari-
ly useless.
Deputy Whitaker also was car-
rying a flashlight.
'Due to Mr. Harvey thrashing
around trying to get free, the offi-
cer said he accidentally hit him on
the head instead the neck.
All three men tumbled onto the
hood of a car, then to the ground,
and eventually the officers were
able to subdue him.
Mr. Harvey testified he didn't
hit anyone, but that he was the vic-
tim of an unprovoked attack by the
police.
It took 20 staples to close sever-
al lacerations on his head.
The only independent witness
to the incident generally confirmed
the officers' version and said they
did not use excessive force.


Authorities say a male suspect
dressed in a work uniform made off
with a $2800 floor buffer from the
MacclennyV Winn-Dixie store dur-
ing daylight hours on October 19.
The missing buffer was report-
ed by a California company that
contracts with the supermarket
chain for floor maintenance.
Assistant store manager Ralana
Long told police a male suspect
who appeared to have on a compa-
ny uniform took the buffer to a
rear dock, then transported: it off
the premises.
Store employees assumed he
was taking it away for repairs.
In other thefts, an ex-husband is
suspected in the disappearance of
$10,000 in jewelry and other
household items from the resi-
dence of Deborah Clements on
Birch St. in Macclenny II.
Someone apparently entered
through a locked door between
October 13-16. also disconnecting
a deep freeze and damaging an air
conditioner, the owner said.

Children

differ on

abuse story
A criminal complaint alleging
child abuse was lodged against a
26-year-old Sanderson man for
striking his son, despite statements
by the man and three children that
marks on the boy's face came
from horseplay.
The 3-year-old victim's mother,
who lives in Glen St. Mary, told
police her son returned October 23
from an extended visit with the
father and had suspicious scratches
and bruises on the left side of his
face.
The boy initially told his moth-
er he had been slapped.
When police later questioned
the father, he said the boy had
been sent to his room to take a
nap, and the father at first went
there to spank him because he was
yelling and drying.
Instead, he said he began tick-
ling and wrestling with his, son to
calm him, and was joined by three
children of his girlfriend who also
live at the residence off Wiremil
Road.
The oldest of the other children
told police he may have struck the
boy attempting to get him off his
back during the tussling.
The Department of Children-
and Families was notified and the
state attorney's office will decide
whether a criminal charge against.
the father is merited.

Arrested for

wife abuse
Police arrested Gary Huckeby,
S55, at his north Macclenny resi-
Sdence about dawn on October 20
after his wife telephoned from a
Convenience store about a violent
Episode earlier that morning over
their daughter's pet.
Nancy Huckeby, 52, told Sgt.
Michael Crews her husband curs-
ed at her while pushing her down,
then ransacked their North 6th St.
residence during the argument. He
also yanked out telephone wiring
when sheattempted to,,call the
i shcrif f', department.
The wife said Mr. Huckeby has-
a history of domestic violence and
she feared retribution for reporting
the incident, so police then confis-
cated four firearms and ammuni-
tion from the residence.
The next evening, two alleged
assailants were jailed in east Mac-
6~enny following an attack on
Ashley Amerson, 19, who is preg-
nant.
The victim and several witness-
es told police Ramona Robertson,
17, of Macclenny, several times
brandished a knife arid threatened
to cut Ms. Amerson.
Another 17-year-old female,
also of Macclenny, is charged w ith
dragging the victim from her First
St. residence by her hair. She is
charged with battery; Ms. Rob-
ertson with aggravated battery, a
second degree felony.

Smokers who

drink sought
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic.
in Jacksonville are looking for stu-.
dent smokers ages 18-25 who
drink alcohol regularly for a smok-
ing cessation study. :
Participants must want to stop
smoking..
"\We know the use of alcohol -
makes quitting difficult, says Ste\'en
Ames. PhD. the study's principal
investigator. "Drinking puts those
who quit or want to quit more at
risk of relapsing or not doing well
at their attempts to quit. The study
\ ill help students with that as-
pect."
One group of participants.will
use "best practice" smoking cessa-
tion therapy including doses of
nicotine through skin patches, plus


behavioral counseling.
The other group will receive the
Snatches and a novel behavioral
intervention designed for the
young adult smoker-drinker.
Participants will receive one of
the two 12-week interventions and
later follow-up to determine how
successful they've been.

Neighbor

- A neighbor on Blair St. in west

suspect's mother was at her resi-
dence and found the pill bottle in a

the more you read, the better it gets That's because our rate is not a teaser rate just
to get you in the door and it doesn't go up based on your credit. There are no hidden
costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties that change the true cost of the loan to you.
In fact, we'll even pay your closing costs on lines of $10,000 to $125,000. We adjust our
best rate monthly to keep it a half a percent below the prime rate as reported by the Wall
Street Journal's Money Rate section and is current as of October 7, 2005. Of course, there
are always limitations and restrictions, such as basic credit approval, the appraised value of
your home and the amount of money you want to borrow. But in the end, you'll find that our
low rates just keep getting better, the more you know. For example, you can get our best rate
on up to 80% of the value of your home, less the first mortgage balance, if it's your primary
residence. Other loan to value rates are equally attractive and again, aren't encumbered by
hidden charges and early payoff fees. Visit a branch or call us for details and learn why we are
the leader in home equity loans and lines of credit.

Lack of signal halts freight; ties up Macclenny traffic...
North-south traffic flow on busy 5th and 6th Sts. in downtown Macclenny came to a halt and backed up on both sides of the CSX tracks for
a half hour the afternoon of October 14 when this eastbound freight stopped just east of town. The signal just east of the city limits
remained on red, and by law the engineer cannot proceed until it turns green. Some of the traffic found alternate routes at two west city
crossings. The county has a ten minute limit on the amount of time trains can block tracks, an event that rarely happens in either Glen St.
Mary or Macclenny, but was more common in downtown Sanderson. On several occasions it impeded emergency vehicles. There is, how-
ever, some question whether the local ordinance could be enforced if it conflicted with safety and other rules applying to train engineers.


Co-defendant gets 15 years after

conviction for pawn shop robbery


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
One of the two men accused in
the foiled robbery of a Macclenny
pawn shop in February was sen-
tenced this week to 15 years in
prison.by Circuit Judge David
Giant.
A Baker County jury on Octo-
ber 19 found Glen Schofield of
Jacksonville guilty of attempted
armed robbery.
Mr. Schofield has an extensive
criminal record, including a con-
viction for homicide.
His alleged accomplice in the
failed robbery attempt, Samuel
Williams, is scheduled for trial
next \eek.
Mr. Schofield walked into Du-
val Gun & Pawn on West Mac-
clenny Avenue around 1:30 pm
February 23.
He pulled a .22 caliber magnum
revolver on owner Bruce Sale,
who grabbed for the gun.
As they struggled for the gun, it
went off, firing a bullet intothe
ceiling and startling the men, \who
each recoiled.
- Mr. Sale grabbed his Glock .40
caliber pistol and fired three shots
at.Mr. Schofield as he fled the
store and headed west on Mac-
clenny Ave.
The pawn shop owner briefly
gave chase, but fired no more
shots.
Police called in tracking dogs,
but lost the trail in the YMCA
parking lot several blocks south of
the robbery scene.,
Meanwhile, Mr. Williams was
walking toward the pawn shop.
He'd called earlier about picking
up some items he'd pawned.
After speaking with police, he
went to his car, which was parked.
a couple blocks away at a gas sta-
tion.

He later returned, confronting
officers about allegedly taking
money from him when they inter-
viewed him. He then left the
scene.
He was picked up later and
charged as an accessory.
Around 9:30 pm, an anony-
mous call about a suspicious man
loitering near the NAPA store on
Macclenny Ave. led police to Mr.
Schofield.
He was apprehended after a
brief chase, still holding the hand-
gun.
At first he denied trying to rob
the pawn shop, but faced with a
positive identification by Mr. Sale,
he admitted involvement.
. He further said Mlr. \\illiiims
had picked him up in Jacksonville
and talked him into the robbery by
positioning it as an insurance scam
in which Mr. Sale was a willing
participant.
In another trial, last week, Josh-
ua Davis was sentenced'to 18
months' probation by Judge David
Reiman after a jury found him
guilty October 20 of trying to
elude police in a high speed chase.
.Mr. Davis, of Sanderson, re-
fused to stop when police tried to
pull him over for spinning his


wheels turning south on Sixth
Street from Macclenny Ave.
Deputy Randy Davis chased
him at speeds of up to 85 miles per
hour as the fleeing driver weaved
in and out of the middle turn lane
to pass other cars.
After starting to turn onto the
ramhp to westbound 1-10, he swerv-
ed back onto Sixth Street and drove
to the Country Club Lounge, where
police blocked him in.
When he was arrested, he told
the deputy he'd been trying to get
to the bar before it closed.


Child abuse,

contempt
A north county man was charg-
Sed with child abuse and contempt
of court for allegedly beating his
9-year-old son with a belt on Oc-
tober 18.
- The boy, a student at Westside
Elementary in Glen St. Mary, re-
ported the incident to school offi-
Scials the next day. He alleged his
father, Wesley Bennett, 34, who
lives on the Baxter Grade, struck
him about 20 times for hitting his
stepsister.
An investigator with the De-
partment of Family and Children
photographed bruises on the boy's
buttocks, lower back, thighs and
sides. The marks are consistent
with the boy's statement that his
father alternated the location of the
blows.
The investigator took the boy
into protective custody and police
interviewed the father, who admit-
ted striking him with a belt. The
accused said he did it because his
son struck a young girl on the
school bus."
The contempt charge is rooted
in an order signed by Circuit Judge
Elzie Sanders in April, 2004 for-
bidding Mr. Bennett to use corpo-
ral punishment on the youngster.

Intoxicated...
A St. George, Ga. mail ended
up charged with disorderly intoxi-
cation after he became involved in
a verbal confrontation with an ex-
girlfriend at the Exxon Store in
west Macclenny.
Deputy Randy Davis responded
to a complaint about 11:00 pm on
October 22 and found Josh Peters,
19, yelling loudly at the woman.
He refused to calm himself and
leave the premises.
Micah Morrison, 22, of Glen St.
Mary was arrested at the same
store on a similar charge early the
morning of October 21.
Deputy Sgt. Thomas Dyal said
he found Mr. Morrison passed out
on a table outside the store, which
had closed earlier.
Early last week, a truck driver
in trainingJouind herself charged
with battery of a co-worker for al-
legedly striking him several times
during an argument on Interstate
10 near Sanderson.
STracyBlack, 24, and her driver-
trainer Robert Walker, 46, are both
from Walterboro, S.C. and were
passing through the area when an
argument flared over an unspeci-
fied incident the previous day.

Tips for fun,

worry-free

Halloween

Halloween is a tirime of great fun
for children, but can get a little
scary for parents and drivers.
Children are out after dark, cross-
ing busy streets and going to un-
familiar homes.
Here are some simple tips to
keep the festivities festive:
With Halloween falling on a
school day, trick-or-treating is
more likely to take place at dusk
or later. If children are out at night,
drivers need to be particularly
careful at dusk and when'driving
either over a hill or around a
curve, where visibility is limited.
Use high beams to see and be
seen.
Trick-or-treaters should al-
ways be accompanied by an adult
or travel in a group. Children
should not eat any unwrapped can-
dy or treats until they return home
where parents cansee them.
Making sure kids have eaten be-
fore going out should.help.
SParents should incorporate re-
flective tape'in costumes or add
bright colors to increase visibility.
Make-up rather than masks should
be worn to help ensure that child-
ren have an unobstructed view of
their surroundings.
Trick-or-treaters may be
caught up in the excitement of the
day and not be as careful as they
should be. They should always
cross at corners and look both
ways before crossing. Drivers
need to keep a careful eye on the
road and sidewalk in case anyone
darts out from between parked
cars.
Children should stay on the
sidewalk or, if none is available,
walk facing the lane of traffic.
They should carry a flashlight.
Homeowners should clear
their yards of anything that can be
tripped over and be sure to have a
front door or walkway light on.
Refrain from decorations using an
open flame that could ignite a
child's costume.

Many years ago I was torn and raised in Baker County. Many change; have
taken place since that day. I have made many mistakes in my life and am not
proud of some of the things I have done in my past When I was younger you
could read about my mistakes in this newspaper, Dut because of being intro-
duced to a man called Jesus, in the county jail 16 years ago, I am a new
creature. I moved away, got married and was called to pastor and have.pas-
tored many churches, but when I was called home to pastor the Baxter
Church of God it was a honor to come here and place back in the community
what was given to me as.a young man. A word of encouragement- don't for-
get where you come from, you can't appreciate where your headed. Thanks to
all who did not give up on me and I promise I won't give up on you. Looking
for a fresh start? Come see me at the Baxter Church of God.

Coach Griffis


pleased with


team's season


BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Staff
It may be a cliche, but it's true
that the Wildcats junior varsity
football team was better than its
3-3 record this season.
"We should have won a couple
of more games, but we didn't
come up with key plays against
Bradford County and Fernandina
Beach," said Cats coach Franklin
Griffis.
He said the only game his team
wasn't in was on the road against
Middleburg.
"Overall, I'm very pleased
with the season. I'm pleased with
the guys' effort and their enthusi-
asm for the game."
The Cats won games the old-
school way, with a tough defense
and punishing ground game.


Long TDs

in Vikes'

win over


Cowboys

BY LAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
The Youth League Vikings
saved a horse Saturday, riding
the Cowboys to a 26-13-victory
behind an extraordinary perfor-
mance by Kesjaun Jefferson.
Jefferson gained 227 yards on
just 13 carries, reeling off louch-
down runs of 65, 30 and 17
yards. He also scored an extra
point.
It.was the Cowboys' first loss
of the season.
Both teams are 3-1.
After the Vikings opened the
scoring, the Cowboys answered
with a 65-yard touchdown gallop
by Jason Franklin, who later,
added a 75-yard score.
In addition to Jefferson's
work, the Vikings got 70 yards
on eight carries, a touchdown
and extra point from Kolby
Wilcox
Ridge Home ran for 43 yards
on five carries from Ridge Home
Kolby Wilcox and Jarett Rauler-
son had 10 \ards on two carries.-
On the defensive side, Home
led the way with seven tackles.
Wilcox had six, in addition to a
fumble recovery.
Brandon Harvey had 3 tack-
les, Stewart and Raulerson each
had a pair of throw downs. Ray-
mond Crews, Justis Paige, Jordan
Kiper and A.;Crews Orender


As a team, they averaged 4.5'
yards per carry for the season.
Josh Trippett led the way with
403 yards on 73 carries, an aver-
age of 5.5 yards per carry.
Jarvis Farmer wasn't too far
behind, averaging 5.4 yards. He
gained 353 yards on 65 carries.
He led the team in scoring with
32, points on five touchdowns and
a safety. Trippett scored four
toUchdowns and a pair of two-
point conversions.
"I figured we'd be a strong run-
ning team," Griffis said. "We had
good backs, but I wasn't sure
about the line, which had some
young guys. But they responded
well."
He credited the defense with
key goal line stands and making
plays when the team needed them.
David Corona was the leading

Stacker with 46.5, while Jarod
Sharman added 31.
The passing game was not as
strong, as B.J. Rowe and Bryson
Johnson alternated time under
center.
Combined, they completed
nine passes in 35 attempts for 146
yards.
In a way, that's to be expected
in an offense geared for the run.
It's the same system the varsity
runs, which is an advantage,
Griffis said.


"It's the same plays, the same
blocking schemes, the same drills.
The thought is that by the time
they're juniors or seniors, they've
-spent three or four years learning
it."
He said the success of a junior
varsity team can translate to the
varsity level although there are
some variables you can't account
for, such as opponents who pro-
mote young players straight to
varsity.

Cats close their season

with loss to Bradford

BYLAURA BETH BRINER
Press Sports
The Wildcats varsity volleyball team lost in the first round of post-
season play October 18, ending their season at 9-12.
The Lady Cats fell to the Bradford County Tornadoes in four close
sets.
The Cats lost the first two sets 25-22 and 25-18, but rallied to take
the next one 25-22. For the last set, the ladies fought hard but lost 26-
24.
Mindy Roberts had 18 serves to lead in that category. Tiffany Nor-
man had an excellent 18 aces. Laura Richardson had 24 assists.
"That was a great match, our girls never gave up. I am proud of them
and look forward to continuing our success next year," said head coach
Karla Amburgey.
The ladies will have a banquet to hand out awards November 1 to
end their season.


Wildcats coach returns

to college alma mater

BY MICHAEL RINKER
Press Sports
Carl West's alma materwon its football game this weekend.
Furthermore, his alma mater didn't play football this weekend.
The Baker County High School graduate and head football coach didn't
have a game last Friday because the Wildcats had a bye week, a welcome
respite from a disappointing season.
Instead, West took his son Sterling, who plays for the Cats, to the Uni-
versity of South Carolina for the Gamecocks' homecoming game against
Vanderbilt.
West, a star running back for the Wildcats, played for South Carolina
after graduating from BCHS in 1977.
His running mate at USC was George Rogers, who won the Heisman
Trophy in 1980.
West said he enjoyed his trip to Columbia
"I had a great time... saw some friends, some guys I played with.
"It was nice to take Sterling, let him look around, see the facilities."
They also got a chance to hear the Gamecocks' first-year coach speak.
A relative unknown by the name of Steve Spurrier.
Did West offer any football insights to the upstart coach?
"No, he was speaking to an audience, I couldn't get up there to give
him any advice," West said with a laugh.
It wasn't the first time West encountered the 01' Ball Coach; he took
part in a coaching clinic Spurrier conducted.
Earlier this season, he talked about the excitement generated by the hir-
ing of Spurrier.
"He was the best choice."
Asked if he had any input in the selection, West laughed and said,
"They don't consult the peons. That's a decision the school and the big
boosters make."
In September, he predicted the Gamecocks would be competitive, and
said by next year they would challenge for the Southeast Conference title.
South Carolina beat Vanderbilt 35-28 in last week's homecoming game,
improving its record to 4-3, 2-3 in the tough SEC.
"It was an exciting game," West said.
The Gamecocks scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:41 left in the
game, then stopped the Commodores' final drive at the 30-yard line.
This Friday West takes the Wildcats to Bishop Kenny to try to break the
team's season-long losing streak. The game begins at 7:30 pm.
The following week is Baker County's homecoming game against Fer-
nandina Beach.




SPORTS



Volleyball coaches


review their' seasons


With the end of high school
and middle school volleyball,
Press sports reporter Laura Beth
Briner asked the coaches to look
back and comment on their sea-
sons.

Karla Amburgey
BCHS varsity coach
Did the season live up to your
expectations?
Yes and no.
No because I did expect us to
win more matches. Our girls are
great athletes but they have trou-
ble getting their mental game to-
gether. They need to learn what it
takes to win a game on sources
other than their athletic ability.
Yes as far as enjoying the girls
,on the team. We have great ladies
that come from wonderful fami-,
lies. We had a couple of bumps
in the road hut nothing we could
not smooth out. This has been the
most enjoyable season I have had
since I came from Kentucky.
Is there anything:you would
have done differently?
I would have worked more on
mental toughness, and continued
our conditioning. We need better
service receiving and blocking.
The game is fast paced and if
you are not willing to step up to
the challenge you will be left be-
hind.
Middleburg is a good example
of a team that lost a lot of impor-
tant seniors, putting them in a re-
building year, but they stepped
up.the the challenge.
Do you have a sense of what
to expect next year?
I can't wait until next year.
Each year we will get better and
better. The girls that are coming
back really love the sport and are
willing to do whatever it takes to
improve. Keep an eye on Baker
County volleyball over the next
few years. I promise we will
make this county proud.

SChris Armoreda
BCHS junior varsity coach
Did the season live up to your
expectations?
The JV squad finished with a
record of 7- wins and 9 losses.
Don't let the record fool you. Our
team improved by leaps and
bounds.-
It was a tight-knit group and
worked hard every day. The sea-
son did live up to expectations
because the potential we saw as a
coaching staff at the beginning of


the season blossomed in the end.I
Every girl on the JV squad con-
tributed to the effort and their at-
titudes were great.
Is there anything you would
have done differently?
No. This JV team always gave
their best effort. In the sixteen
games we had this season, seven
of those matches went to the
third and deciding game. We sur-
prised many teams we played. I
remember the Orange Park JV
coach telling me we have a
"scrappy team." The girls always
found ways to get back into
games through their serving, hus-
tle and passing and spiking exe-
cution.
Do you have a sense of what
to expect next year?
The future looks promising
with the arrival of the incoming
freshman class of 2006. We will
continue to work hard and pro-
vide Baker County fans with
quality volleyball.

Allen Murphy
BCMS coach
Did the season live up to your
expectations?
A 7-7 record is nothing to be
ashamed about, but I know the
girls had the potential to do bet-
ter. We worked hard on the fun-
damentals of skills, but it all
came down to how they per-
formed on the court as a team.
Is there anything you would
have done differently?
There was not a team in the
conference that we could not
have beaten and sometimes this
sticks in your craw.
The mental.aspect of the game
was one aspect that the girls were
sometimes lacking. Sometimes
it's hard to get middle school
kids focused and mentally alert
for competition.
Do you have a sense of whatto
expect next year?
This is a great group of kids to
work with and I never had any
discipline problems. The return-
ees have been challenged to play
throughoutthe off season in club
ball or through church groups to
keep and hone their skills.
The high school will have
many assets coming through
their doors next August, not only
in volleyball but in many other
sports that these athletes com-
pete.
