" cancer hoaxter accused of theft from ill relative
BY JIM McGAULEY
Guess who's in the news again?
Vicki Spivey, 37, on probation for faking a case of
leukemia and stealing $12,000 donated for her treat-
ment, was named January 6 in a criminal complaint for
stealing money from an ill cousin.
The complaint made by Ottis McDaniel, 54, of Mac-
clenny, alleges Ms. Spivey overdrew the amount she
was authorized to spend while staying with the com-
plainant at his west city address for two weeks.
While Mr. McDaniel, who has liver cancer, was hos-
pitalized he alleges Ms. Spivey failed to deposit anoth-
er $173 into his account. She told him the money was
taken from Mr. McDaniel's Ford Explorer pickup dur-
ing a burglary, a claim he disputes. He says both the
window and door lock Ms. Spivey said were damaged
in the alleged breaking have been broken since he
bought the truck several years ago.
Ms. Spivey, a former case worker at Northeast
Florida State Hospital, was sentenced in August, 2000
to six months in county jail and four and a half years on
probation after pleading guilty to the cancer fraud.
Her own family turned her in to police the previous
fall after becoming suspicious about her spending
habits. It was soon discovered she faked her illness,
and concocted a scheme to transfer foundation dona-
tions and other cash to a bogus clinic and bank account,
then back to herself.
She spent a considerable amount of the funds pur-
chasing collector dolls, earning her the name Beanie
Baby Scammer. She tearfully pleaded guilty to the
crime in early 2000.
The sheriff's department sought to question Ms.
Spivey following Mr. McDaniel's complaint, but soon
learned she had been arrested in Jacksonville on a
Nassau County warrant for dealing in stolen property.
Ms. Spivey has a Fernandina Beach address, and a
spokeswoman for the Nassau County department was
unable to give details of the warrant late Tuesday. A
computer check of inmates in the Duval County system
did not produce her name.
Mr. McDaniel, who has no insurance and is on the
list for a liver transplant, had been soliciting funds in
recent weeks, though it is not immediately known if
any of the missing money was from donations.
Mr. McDaniel told Deputy Darrin Whitaker after he
asked Ms. Spivey to leave his Magnolia St. address, he
found his savings account ledger in a garbage can. He
also said he believes his cousin attempted to poison
him while she was living at his residence.
Among those who have been helping Mr. McDaniel,
an out-of-work meat cutter who worked at several local
stores, was Ms. Spivey's mother Gail of Macclenny,
who is also a nurse.

to lower ISO rating
Some insurance savings on new home
The Baker County Building and
Zoning office got a bit of good
news recently, as did. homeowners
who plan to build in 2006, when
the county's ISO (Insurance Ser-
vices Office) rating for new con-
struction dropped from 5 to 3.
The lower rating generally trans-
lates to correspondingly lower
property insurance rates, similar to
the effect lower ISO fire ratings
have on fire insurance.
A review was conducted in the
last quarter of 2005 based on the
ISO's Building Code Effectiveness
Grading Schedule, and the
county scored high enough in
several key areas to earn the
"3" rating for single and two-
family structures, and for com-
"What this means is we've
been able to show the national
rating service we've come up
to snuff in several key areas,
and as a result they can say
construction is more durable
and able to withstand things
like hurricanes," said Robert
Hathcox, for six years now the
county's chief building official.
Just how much those savings
will add up to is a bit elusive,
since it depends on the size of
the structure and type of cover-
age. But overall, the lower ISO
translates into lower rates.
Unfortunately, the new rat-
ing on the 1-10 scale will not
help anyone who built prior to

In the past, making the two-hour"
drive to partake of this gustatory
delight was a small price to pay for
such pleasure. Sure, seeing all the
kinfolk is important and it's fun to
see new babies and how much the
older kids have grown in the past
year. But I'm there for the food.
Never one to be shy about eating
as soon as the blessing is over. I
grab a plate and belly up to the
trough. In addition to the succulent
pig, the tables groan with side dishes
brought by all the families. I always
taste everything. Even if three peo-
ple make potato salad and cole slaw,
I taste it all.
The best part, of course, is the to-
go plate that everyone gets to take
home so that this experience can be
repeated a second or even third time.
Barbecue cooking techniques and
sauces vary from region to region
and sometimes within a state, from
county to county. That's the beauty
of this culinary delight. Whether
your preference is for chicken, pork,
beef or turkey that's grilled, baked;
boiled or smoked; plain or basted
with ketchup, mustard or vinegar-
based sauce there is something to
suit everyone's taste and variety is
the spice of life.
I was delighted to see multiple'
sources of my favorite food within a
few miles of my office when I first
moved to Macclenny. And it's been
fun exploring the barbecue traditions
of Florida vs. my hometown in
South Carolina. I was also pleased

inmy mind on September 11, 2001
when they prevented a second air-
plane from striking Washington.
But, please! Do we have to have
them attached to our ears during all'
waking hours? ,
This Christmas a hot item was
the phone attachments that fit into
the ear. Not like a hearing aid
(though that's coming) but like an
ornament stretching across the e&ar
so the mouthpiece is somewhat for-
ward on the face.
I thought phone attachments to

I supposed they're gobs safer
when one is driving, but they beg
the question: what did these people
do with their time before we had
If I spied someone on the phone
in the old days, in an airport or at
the house or office, I never won-
dered who they were talking to.
Back then before cell phones, it
seems we spent only the time we
needed to on the phone.
We all know that wasn't any
more true then than it is now, but
now when I see someone in line at
Wendy's on the phone and barking
alternately to the person behind the
counter and the person at the other
end, I ask myself: who are they
talking to and why is it important
enough to act so rudely?
On another, somewhat related
front, the debate goes on about e-,
mails and instant messaging.
Do people say things they
wouldn't say if the, were talking to
you in person? So they say those
things more often? Do we have a.
better grasp of communicative
skills as a result?
Or is the lack of face-to-face
carving us into a yet more imper-
sonal society? My bet is with the

When the telephone was first
mass produced and made afford-
able for an average household, a lot
of old-timers refused to get one.
It would be the ruination of

(The following is written bv tie th e of
Richard Mlunoz, who tas slhot to death in a
home burglary north of Macclennv early
on December. 9)
Both for those who knew.
Richard and those who did not, it's
a hard thing to understand. He had
S whole lifetime ahead at 23~and
now he's gone. And his % ife, a
daughter and a son are left behind.
Everyone who knew him also
knew this wasn't the Richard we all
loved. He was a funny, loving and
very outgoing person. He loved
being the center of attention and
loved to see others smile.
From time to time, everyone
makes mistakes. We've all done
something, both mundane 'and
large, that we wish we could
change. Does that make us bad per-
sons at heart?
For Richard, his was a grave
He served in the Air Force, he
graduated with honors from the
Decker trade school for electrical
science. He loved his children and
his wife beyond words..
For us, and for the people who
knew him, the truth will come out.
For those who think drugs are
cool and drugs are the thing to do,
this is the ultimate outcome -
death. Death and loved ones left
behind with no answers.
There is one good outcome in all
of this. Bad as the situation was,
two lives were saved due to
Richard's last wishes in donating
Richard was loved very much in
the short time he lived, and he will
continue to be loved forever.

Katherine Hall, who has been
involved with the YMCA's Teen
Sisterhood program since its
inception in October of 2005, is
easily mistaken for one of the
young girls she helps to counsel.
The youthfull appearance of this
slender, petite mother of a baby
.11jiJghter is decei\ ing. Katie, as
she is known by her friends. is
mature for her 21 years and her
determination to help guide young
women toward 'making smart
chliiccs about their life's direction'
-Iouild typically come from some-
one much older.
"We moved around a lot when I
was growing up," says Katie, who
has only lived in Macclenny a
short while. "So-metines the
neighborhoods were really tough.
We lived in places that weren't
very quiet, with a lot of loud
planes always flying overhead.
There was a lot of crime, At a l ery
young age I had already seen a
dead body and had had a gun
pulled on me. Those were things a
child shouldn't have to see."
Katie is one of a family of
many children, but she and her
mother lived apart from the family.
ShL. has never met her father adid
until recently, didn't know much
about her other siblings. Growing
up in those circumstances taught
her the \ alue of positive rqle mod-
els and the negati e impact of not
"I learned the hard'way," says
the diminutive Katie. "I. didn't
really have anyone to guide me or
help me understanJ my options.
It's so important fi..r young women
to hai.c someone to talk to, to have
the freedom to ask questions about
the issues they don't understand
and to see. more than one way to
solve problems. Just having some-
one to talk to is vital."
And that's where the Teen Sis-
terhood Program comes into play.
Whn the program was started,
Director Anna Lewis, along with
0o!, r members of the Baker,
Family YMCA ,taifft. thought
K:time would be a perfect fit as one
of the leaders.
"I was so flattered when they
approached me about it," remem-
bers Ktie, who was x\orkini with
the YMCA Child Watch program,
a position she still holds. "They all
knew my background and how my
determination to learn from my
mistakes and turn my less-than-
wonderful childhood toward a
paiili' e direction for my future.
And I just like to help people, too,
especially young girls."
The goal of the Teen Sisterhood
Program is to providestructured,
fun, 'lllicational and self-ex.\plorin _'
sessions for female teens. It pro-
motes character development, self-
determination, -social development
and positive life choices. Strong,
positive female role models are
chli.en to lead the sessions with

The girls will soon be given
journals to write in about the top-
ics they discuss and what 'they

Katie thinks an open torum for
discussion is very important and
tries to make time for each girl's.

talk about whatever is on their
minds. The\ -,ometimes don't feel
comfortable talking with their par-,

S" WE MISS YOU,
& -' DAD
Thanks so much
We would like to take this
opportunity to give a sincere thank
you to everyone who extended
ihemsieles to us so graciously in
our time of sorrow. It is good to
knot that there are so many com-
passioniate people in our community.
\Xe would like to give an extra
special thank.you to the rescue
staff and ER staff at Ed Fraser
Hospital that was working on
Thanksgi'. ing night in 2005. These
people went above and beyond
their call of duty in every effort to
try to help prolong our mother's
life, but to no avail and in that .situ-
ation, did everything possible to
try to comfort our family in such a
tragic time. We offer a very heart-
felt appreciation to them in return.
We would also like to thank V.
Todd Ferreira Funeral Services
and staff for all of the support they
gave us in planning and making
preparations for the memorial ser-
vice. They did an excellent job and
showed great professionalism.
Also, thanks to all the family,
friends and organizations that sent
food, flowers, cards, etc. Most of
all, thanks for your love and sup-
,port and for keeping us in your
prayers. We would all like to thank
our employers for being so under-
standing and supportive of us
throughout this ordeal, we appreci-
ate everything greatly. I, Tina,
would like to send a personal
thank you to my place of employ-
ment, Frank Wells Nursing Home.
I appreciate everything that you
have done for me. I love each and
every one of you, and it has truly
been a blessing working with you
all in this time of despair for me
and my family. Thanks again.

three games in the past week
against familiar opposition. ..
"We're getting into the second
half of the season, and we've seen
most of the teams before," said
Shawn Mahon, head coach of the
boys' team. ....
The girls won. two of three
games while the boys dropped
each of theirs.
Their records now stand at 4-6
and 0-10 respectively.

Leading scorers for the Cats
were Destin) de la Pena with 12;
Amber Antoine with eight,
Chelsey Ruise with six and both,
Mcagan Osteen and Kierra Lee,
with two each.
The boys lost 45-14 \with only
three players scoring. DeontaN
Farmer had 11, Cason Lowery
had two and Will Miller one.
"I his was the-first game back
after Chiistinas break. We had not
had a good week of practice and it
showed," Mahon said.
The Cats traveled January 6 to
Fernandina Beach to face the Pi-
rates for a second time this sea-
son. The results were much the
same as the first meeting with
Baker coming away with losses.
The girls lost 53-10 with three
ladies scoring. Antoine led with
line barking non-stop instructions
to his players.

The Cats had four players in

Strachan had 17, Gaskins 11
and Dontay Johnson 10.
It's a wonder the Cats had the
energy to take it to the Flashes be-
cause the previous night they
went to overtime at Ridgeview
before prevailing 88-85.
The game was tight through-
out, with the Cats up by one at the
half, but down by four entering
the fourth quarter.,
Tied at 78 at the end of regula-

through three quarters January 9,
but .were unable to answer a
fourth quarter run by the host
Still, the game along with a
January 3 loss at Santa Fe -
serves as an indication of how far
the young Cats have come be-
cause earlier in the season, they
lost big to both schools in games
.played at BCHS.
Coach Franklin Griffis said the
Union County game offered a
glimpse of how good his team can
Junior Brittany Hinson hit five
three-pointers on the way to 23
points. Freshman Brittany Ruise
Griffis said the pair also played
tight defense, getting steals up top
and turning them into fast-break
Caitlin Griffis. a sophomore,
pulled down 15 rebounds despite
sitting out most of the second
quarter because of foul trouble.
The Cats jumped out to a 19-
10 first quarter lead, then led by
two entering the fourth quarter.
Union County, 'however,
outscored Baker by ten to take a
60-52 win. In November the Cats
lost by 15 at home to the Tigers.
"We'd been about a second
slow [reacting to loose balls, re-
bounds, openings in the defense]
but we played pretty good all
around last night," coach Griffis
"Our two weaknesses have
been rebounding and turnovers,"
the coach said. "We've about dou-
bled our rebounds and cut the,.
turnovers in half... but there are
still too many."
Sandwiched between the Santa
Fe and Union County losses, the
Cats beat Middleburg 53-26 but
lost to Fernandina Beach 49-33.
Even that loss, however, had a sil-
ver lining as the Cats were down

Now, Griffis said, "They're go--

guing to win tonight.'"
That bodes well for the rest of
this season as well as the next,

one junior. The rest are sopho-

The Baker County High School
softball team began tryouts Janu-
ary 9, with Coach Cheryl Nunn
anticipating a young but potential-
ly good squad.
"I'm excited, I saw some good
things," she said. "We're young
and we have some things to work
on, but'this team has the heart to
put in the work."
About 20 girls showed up the
first day, with about five more
coming the second, when basket-
ball players had the day off prac-
If the number of girls stays at

wise it's just varsity. The squad
will have 14 players and two alter-'
To determine who those 16 are,
or if there are two teams -
which girls make varsity, Nunn
uses a mathein.tic.l rating system
Dale Joh nson and David Crum-
mey joined Nunn in grading the
first day of tryouts, which was fo-
cused on defense.
Without discussing their opin-
ions with each other, they grade
all the girls on a variety of defen-
sive skills-, including fielding
ground balls, fly balls and throw-
ing. They consider mechanics,
quickness, ball reaction and accu-

on how fast they throw the ball.

On the second day, Nunn will
put the candidates through offen-
sive drills, judging them on the
mechanics of hitting and bunting,
and how well they make contact.
Coaches Chris Armoreda and
Franklin Griffis also rate the girls'

add points based on their speed,
although on offense they do it
with their legs not their arms -

Finally, the girls get points

Despite the number of judges,
the scores are remarkably consis-
tent, Nunn said.
"It always happens that the
coaches come up with almost ex-
actly the same scores."
Although the scores determine
who makes the team, they do nol
decide who starts or who plays
where. Those are coaching deci-
sicns that can change often
throughout the season,
Players are allowed to see their
own scores, but no one else's.
