BCSO sting on underage alcohol selling nets 13

Press Publisher
The sheriff's depadfment doesn't want to say it was
"easy," but when a sting team made the rounds two
nights last week trying to catch store clerks selling
alcohol to minors, it didn't take long to pile on the
Chief Gerald Gonzalez, who lead the team the
nights of January 17 and 18 in Macclenny and Glen St.
Mary, said about 20 stores were visited.
The result? *
Thirteen arrests, four of them at the same two stores
with different clerks on successive nights..
"We decided it was time to crack down. Deputies
are stopping kids under 21 who are drunk or nearly
drunk and it's getting worse," observed the chief.
"The kids won't tell us where they're getting it, so
the best way we can attack this is show up at the stores

and try to buy alcohol using someone underage.
That someone last week was 20-year-old Amanda
Hauge, who works in the communications (dispatch)
office of the sheriff's department. According to the
chief, she looks her age and 'willingly agreed to play
the key role in the stings.
Her method was the same everytime: she entered
the store, went to a cooler and brought a six pack of
beer back to the counter. If the clerk accepts money for
it, he or she gets busted.
The sole exception was the Country Club Lounge
on South 6th, where the minor actually entered the
building, sat at the bar and ordered a beer.
If the clerk followed the law and carded Ms. Hauge,
the team went on to the next store. Chief Gonzalez
estimates that happened at six locations.
The squad delayed arresting violators until the
evening's circuit was complete, then went back to
offenders and wrote them a summons to appear in

court. Conviction on the second degree misdemeanor
could result in a fine of $500 or 60 days in jail, or both.
Several of the surprised clerks denied selling to the
minor, a fruitless exercise since Ms. Hauge was visual-
ly observed from outside buying beer.
And she was wearing a bug.
"If they said it wasn't them or they didn't sell her
the beer, we'd offer to play the tape," said the chief.
Ironically, the team was making its rounds the first
evening about the time a fatal accident occurred on CR
23A northwest of Macclenny (see article, this page).
The Florida Highway Patrol says alcohol may have
been a contributing factor. The victim and the driver of
his car are both 20.
"It (underage purchasing) is obviously a problem
and this proves it," Chief Gonzalez asserts. "We won't
stop with this and because this seems to be more of a
problem we want to get the point across. We want

these people (clerks and store owners) to help us in
Clerks and store owners arrested include: Brenda
Eckert, 37, of Macclenny (January 18) and Dorothy
Marrow, 45, of Macclenny (January 17) at the Amoco

on 23-A

The force of the colliding vehi-
cles was so crushing it left plastic
and metal parts strewn on and near
the roadway the night of January
17 when Baker County counted its
second traffic fatality of 2006.-
The two-vehicle accident on CR
23-A took the life of Philip C.
Middleton, 20, of Macclenny, a
passenger in a 1996 Saturn driven
by Caleb Kaeck. The driver is also
20 and from Macclenny.
Trooper David Myers ofthe
Florida Highway Patrol said the
Saturn was northbound about 9:00
pm when it attempted to pass slow-
er traffic and veered into the path

of a southbound 1997 GMC pickup
driven by Richard Smith, 25, of
Macclenny. The right front of the
passenger car struck the right front
of the pickup, and the impact spun
both vehicles around and into the
west ditch and shoulder.
Mr. Middleton, a native of Cal-
ifornia whose nickname was
"Petey," died at the scene. Trooper
Myers said he was not wearing a
seat belt, nor were the driver or. Mr.

Smith .
Charges are pending analysis of
blood alcohol tests on both drivers.
Mr. Kaeck \\as flown that eve-
ning to Shands Jacksonville with
incapacitating injuries.
The county's first fatality of
2006 occurred just five days into
the new year when a Georgia
woman's car went out of control
east of Sanderson on Interstate 10
and struck a tree.

Aging pets..,

They're living longer, too;

some things you should

know about dogs and cats

Press Staff
People love their pets. They are a
source of affection, loyalty and enter-
tainment. For decades, dbgs held the
title of most popular pet in America.
Cats have steadily closed that gap and
recently surpassed their canine counterparts
to hold the title of most popular pet in the
United States.
Cats and dogs can live to a very ripe old
age and that average age is increasing all

the time. It's not unusual for
a family pet to live for two
decades or more. There are
reports of cats and dogs liv-
ing into their late twenties
and, with rare exceptions, Stanley
beyond that.
An Australian cattle dog named Bluey is
documented as being the oldest dog in the
world, passing away at the age of 29 -
approximately 189 in corresponding human
years. There are undocumented reports of
older dogs.

While there is great appeal in raising a

be some advantages to adopting an older
The energy level of kittens and puppies
can be overwhelming. Older animals usual-
ly have already had some behavior training
and are housebroken. In general, they are
calmer and more settled. This is good for an
older person adopting a pet who may not
have the desire or patience to raise a young
animal. Older pets often are a better choice
in households with very young, often ram-
bunctious children who tend to be too rough
or careless with baby animals.
The older dog or cat already understands
what 'no' means and is socialized to be

Not true!
You definitely. can teach an old,
dog new tricks. They are never too
old to learn or be trained. An
example is Autumn,. a 10-year-old
mixed breed considered unexcep-
tional by her disinterested owners
who finally put her up for adop-
tion. The fimil\ 's nickname for
Autumn was "stupid."
Autumn was adopted by: a new,
caring owner who decided the dog
minihlit benefit from some training.
Now 14, Autumn routinely wins
awards in obedience competitions.
Senior dogs who go through
training often thrive on the extra a-
ttention and social interaction.
Dr. Robert Engle, owner of
Baldwin Animal Clinic, has some
advice for the care of an older pet.
"One of the most troubling
aspects for older animals that con-
cerns me is undue strc~" said Dr.
"Animals are so much like peo-
ple; they establish routines that are
familiar and comfortable for them
and they get set in their ways. If
something suddenly disrupts that
routine the animal may develop
anxiety, which can accelerate all
sorts of health ailmiert."
An example of the type of stress
that concerns Dr. Baldwin would
be the acquisition of a new pet
with pcrsin.lit) traits very differ-
ent from the older pet. If the new
pet is aggressive or loud or terri-
torial, this will frighten and intimi-
date the older pet, e',peciall) if that
older pet has tr.iadljon.tll been the
only one in the household.
Another example is boarding a

pet. that isn't used to it, which can
be confusing and sometimes terri-
fying. The animal feels like it's in
jail. It feels abandoned and can't
understand why,
"'Separation anxiety is bad too,"
Dr. Engle continues. "I've seen sit-
uations in which two dogs or cats
were together for years and one
suddenly dies. The other animal
can go into mourning, refusing to
eat or drink and wastes j a'.i."
Because of the variety of ail-
ments that 1tpicall\ affect pets as
they age, such as kidney disfunc-
tion in cats and hip displasia and
heart problems in dogs, Dr. Engle
recommends a yearly blood work
exam. In a pet's later years, vacci-
nation is not so important. The
CBC test (complete blood count)
Many of the problems that
affect pets are "slow smoldering,"
says Dr. Engle.
"Th,) may take years to de-
velop and when the symptoms
finally show up, it's already too
late to help very much. A yearly
blood test shows indications of
these ailments long before the pet.
gets sick. At that point, preventive
measures can be taken."
Good oral hygiene is crucial to
the general N1ell-being of senior
animals and is one of the more
neglected pet care areas. Most
people never consider the impor-
tance of keeping their pet's teeth
clean. Inl-.tion from decaying

good or bad the performance of
these kids might be, the support of
family and friends was tremendous.
It surely must have bolstered the
confidence of even the shyest and
most unsure band student.

every part of this section that we
have heard from.
J.W. Rowe was at home at the
time and says the rumble seemed
to come from the Maxville section.
Wm. Knabb reports the people at
Woodstock saying it sounded
north, while in Macclenny it was
hard to locate the direction. C. E.
Wilkerson was at Maxville at the
time and tells us that it seemed to
be a heavy explosion coming from
the east of that place.
We have read of no unusual ex-
plosion any where in this part of
the State, and for this reason we
believe that it was an earth tremor
or the explosion of a falling mete-
or. We hope to have further infor-
mation to report next week, as we
are making inquires in every direc-
tion and hope to locate the exact
nature of this unusual occurence.

Closing of local Ford dealership
seen imminent
The prospect of the county re-
taining two new car dealerships
dimmed considerably last week
when it was learned that the Feder-
al Small Business Administration
rejected the latest loan request from
Regal Ford of Macclenny.
Bernie Haddock, president of
the firm, laid off five remaining
full time employees last Friday,
and said this week that he will
probably have to close down in the
near future. Haddock had been at
the helm of Regal Ford since Labor
Day, 1976.
Regal Ford is just the latest
name carried by Ford in Baker
County. Starting with Knabb Mo-
tors in the 1930's. It was purchased
and owned for years by D.R. Dink-

Efforts of


Dear Editor:
I write this letter to acknowl-
edge the enormous contribution
Rev. Tim Patterson has made to this
community, to the Baker County
Sheriff's Office and to me person-
nally. Brother Tim has been an in-
tegral part of Baker County since
his arrival 15 years ago.
He was instrumental founding a
ministry for law enforcement de-
puties, which enabled the First
Baptist Church of Glen to "Adopt-
A-Cop." The program has been a
huge success, showing men and
women in law enforcement opera-
tions they are encouraged and
prayed for daily.
Brother Tim also established a
law enforcement banquet each
Christmas to honor deputies and'
their families.
He has been available day and
night to pray and counsel with
members of the Baker County
Sheriff's Office, especially with
Sgts. Buck Dyal and Michael
Crews when they were wounded
during a shooting.
Brother Tim has been a source
of encouragement to me on many
occasions, praying with me before
bypass surgery and during difficult
and stressful times during my
terms in office..
While we will miss him and
feel his absence in our lives and
community, we wish for him the
very best God has to offer as he
begins a new endeavor to serve his
Sheriff-Baker County

Recognizes Glen's 'academic achievers'

Houses from city's flooded area are moved last week..
Two of the three houses purchased by the City of Macclenny from a flood-prone block in the northeast city began their journey to Green
Cove Springs on January 16, shown here as they head south from the Interstate 10 bridge over SR 121, escorted by police vehicles. The
homes were parked temporarily over the holidays near the courthouse due to a ban on moving during that busy traffic time and because
the city has already begun work on.a large retention pond to hold water runoff during heavy rains. A third structure was already moved.

'Enraged' man gets one year

Press Staff
A Macclenny man described by
police as being in an -'enraged
trance" as he faced off with them
armed with a rifle was sentenced
to a year in jail after being found
guilty by a Baker County jury.
John Binion had been charged
with two counts of aggr'. ated as-
sault on a law enforcement officer,
but jurors opted for the lesser of-
fense of improper exhibition of a
Circuit Judge David Glant sen-
tenced him to 364 days in county
jail with credit for 151 days
served. On January 23, the judge
denied Mr. Binion's motion for a
new trial.
Prior to the January 18 trial, Mr.
Binion pleaded no contest to a
charge of batters
Police had gone to his home last
summer after he beat his wife.
Public defender John Maguire
argued that the jury should not
have been shown photographs of
the victim because they weren't
relevant to the aggravated assault

Sgt. Michael Crews responded
to the Mr. Binion's home on Bird
Pond Road in the early morning
hours of August 21 last year.
He found the wife bleeding pro-
fusely from her face.
She told him that her husband
was supposed to pick her up at
work at 11:00 pm but never show-
ed up.
She got a ride home from her
sister-in-law, then fell asleep on
the couch, but was awakened
around 3:30 am when her husband
came home and began groping her.
She told him to leave her alone
and asked where he'd been.
Mr. Binion then began beating
her in the head and face and re-
peatIedl\ biting her on her upper
body. She briefly broke away, but
he tackled her and stomped on her
She eventually escaped and
called police from a neighbor's.
Sgt. Crews tried unsuccessfully
to get Mr. Binion to come out of
the house. Instead he began pacing
inside and trashing the place.
Then he kicked the back door,


which came open. The officer saw
him standing there with a rifle.
He described Mr. Binion as be-
ing in an "enraged trance," and
"pale... with blood splattered .on
his face." z '-
Mr. Binion refused to put down
the weapon, but at one point he
lowered it.
Deputy Darrin Whitaker, who'd
arrived in the meantime, released
his police dog, who diverted Mr.
Binion's attention.
The officers then subdued him.
In other cases:
Ho ward Hartley was sen-
tenced to 14.55 months in prison
after he pleaded no contest to three
counts of sale or possession of a
controlled substance. He received
credit for 221 days already served.
Mitchell Buchanan had his
probation revoked and sentenced
to six months in jail with credit for
35 days served. He, pleaded no
contest to sale or possession of a
controlled substance.

Deep appreciation
We would like to take this
opportunity to sincerely thank all
of those who have shown their
love and support at our time of
loss. Your prayers, acts of kindness:
and words of encouragement have
given us much comfort during this
difficult period. Our dad was a
strong man and he put lip a hard
fight, but it seems he just had too
many serious things concerning
his health to win this last battle.
We would especially like to
thank V. Todd Ferreira Funeral
Services for their sensitive and
caring manner, as well as their
professional attention to every
detail. We would also like to thank
the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Sjints-for their 'oviYng..i
care and gracious hospitality.
Walter Davis was a wonderful
husband and father who took care
of his family all his life and spent
his latter years seeing to the needs
of the elderly and less fortunate.
Our dad truly believed that a
father's role was to provide and
protect his loved ones and he lived
his life in such a manner. We love
him very much and he will be
greatly missed, but will continue
to live on in our memories and in
our hearts. Thank you, again, and
may our Heavenly Father bless

Thanks so much
The family of Robert L. Ak-
ridge would like to extend its grat-
itude and appreciation for all the
prayers, food, visits and calls dur-
ing the loss of our dad.
I We would like to extend a very
special thank you to Bro. Jim Cox
and Bro. David Clark for their
long hours and comfort of the fam-
ily when we needed them.
Also to the Taylor Church con-
gregation, the Baker County
Transportation Dept., Charlotte's
Web, Todd Ferreira for a great job,
the Baker County Fire and Rescue
Department for all their efforts, the
Baker County Sheriff's Office and
a special thanks to Robbie and
Stephanie Foster for a quick re-
sponse. Thank each and everyone
of you for everything and God
bless you all,

vices. Potential providers should submit three (3)

Cats rebound from loss

Nine-game win streak ends, but boys bounce back to beat Broncos

After a blazing three-week-
stretch that turned around' a sea-'
son headed nowhere, the Wild-
cats finally tasted defeat after
nine straight wins.
Bradford County visited the
Baker High gym January 21,
and took home a 72-70 victory.,.
In front of a large, loud and
crazy crowd, the Cats led most
of the game, but each time they
seemed poised to pull away, the
visitors hung in.
'Up 24-17 at the end of the
first quarter, the Cats increased
their lead to ten points with four,

Both teams finished the quar-

Tornadoes took the. lead for
,good early in the fourth quarter.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the
Carolina Panthers took similar
paths to reach the Super Bowl XL
February 5 in Detroit.
The Steelers used a strong de-
fense and resilient offense to dis-
mantle the Denter Broncos 34-17
before a shocked Mile High Sta-
dium crowd.
Seattle was at home in the
loudest stadium in the NFL, and
also relied on a stick\, underrated
defense, quarterback Matt Hassel-
beck and the league's Most Valu-
able Plauer, running back Shaun
Alexander to defeat the Carolina
Panthers 34-14.
It's an appealing matchup.
Pittsburgh came in as the low-
est seed. The number 6 seed then
proceeded to defeat seeds 1,2, and

not ask for more than that.
"Of course our record could
have been better, but it is impor-
tant to understand that these play-
ers are in middle school, and
learning the game is more impor-
tant than wins."
As far as game strategy, Ma-
hon also felt he did not prepare
for the press effectively.
"If I had it to do over again I
would have prepared for the press
earlier. Just after Christmas we
were much better prepared to han-
dle the press than we were earlier
in the year. We could have stayed
in some of those games early in
the year if I had expected it."
The team is losing five out of
12 players to the ninth grade.
Among the basketball hopefuls
next year will be eight experi-
enced players.
"Next year we should im-
