22 years for her role in knif

Melinda Wison pleads

to 2nd-degree murder

in August oflast year
The girlfriend of a man sent off to pris-
on for life last month for the brutal stab-
bing of a Cuyler man at his trailer home
in August, 2006 entered a plea of her own
in circuit court this week and was given a
22-year sentence.
Melinda Wilson, 49, will have to serve
at least 85 percent of the sentence for her
role in the murder of 68-year-old Dorsey
Bennett, who was stabbed more than 30
times and left to die on his kitchen floor.
Her boyfriend and co-defendant, former
Glen St. Mary volunteer fireman Stephen
V. Arnold, admitted to inflicting the stab
wounds. He is 52 and not eligible for pa-
Though the couple gave often con-
flicting statements following their arrests
several days after the body of Mr. Ben-
nett was discovered by a son on August
12, assistant state attorney Ralph Yazdiya
said this week the state was prepared to
prove they went to Mr. Bennett's home
to borrow several items, including a gun
they intended to use to intimidate some
unnamed Jacksonville residents.
Ms. Wilson was acquainted with the

victim and had been a frequent visitor
to his trailer. On the day of the murder,
their visit quickly turned confrontational
and what began as a skirmish with knives
escalated to a bloody slashing of Mr. Ben-
nett. whose extensive wounds were on

several parts of his body.
Ms. Wilson, represented by Starke at-
torney Dan Sikes at taxpayer expense, an-
swered questions in a low and sometimes
hesitating voice during a brief pre-sen-
tence interrogatory.


Mr. Sikes several times mentioned that
his client passed a polygraph examination
during which she affirmed that she did
not stab Mr. Bennett.
She was thus allowed to plead to sec-
ond degree murder and the sentence
agreed upon before Monday's court ses-
sion was at the bottom end of state guide-
Judge Phyllis Rosier, who passed sen-
tence March 19 on Mr. Arnold, initially
said she was not sure what to say to Ms.
Wilson on sentencing because of the
senselessness and brutality of the crime.
"You'll just have to do your time and
live with it," the judge declared.

at Mr. Arnold's sentencing. The defen-
dants "played God" when they took the
victim's life and deprived the family of
his company during special occasions in
coming years. The family vowed never to
forgive the couple for what they did.
Judge Rosier quizzed Ms. Wilson
pointedly on whether she was reluctant to
enter the plea or was her hesitancy because
she was upset. The defendant replied she
was upset, then apologized to the Bennett
family, to her family and her son.
She and Mr. Sikes left the courtroom

Head-on collision

critically in ures

driver on R229

Tuesday morning
The driver of this 1989 Dodge pickup was
flown to Shands Jacksonville in critical
condition after it collided head-on with an-
other vehicle on CR 229 south of Interstate
10 the morning of April 3. Trooper DL.
Myers of the Florida Highway Patrol said
the southbound pickup driven by Jeremiah
Colvin, 23, of Macclenny crossed the cen-
ter line before slamming into a northbound
2001 Ford SUV driven by Lora Lewis, 34,
of Starke. A 2005 Hyundai driven by Stan-
ley Rogaski, 22, of Alachua was following
the Lewis vehicle and veered onto the east
shoulder to avoid the collision that de-
stroyed both other vehicles. Ms. Lewis sus-
tained serious injuries and was also taken
to Shands from the scene. Mr. Rogaski was
not injured. Trooper Myers said neither of
the two injured drivers was wearing a seat
belt. The accident occurred about 7:30.

Press Staff
Documents given to the The
Baker County Press by former
Fraser Hospital physician Dr.
Alison Lex spell out in great
detail her fears regarding "the
pattern of illnesses and the high
cancer rate in Baker County."
Those words come from a
cover letter Dr. Lex attached
to several a
pages of
data she
sent to the
ment of
the EPA,
the Flori -
da Depart- i "
ment of Dr. Alison Lex
the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention in.Atlanta
and the Florida Times-Union.
Included in the documents
is an e-mail from Dr. David
Johnson, the medical execu-
tive director at the Division of
Environmental Health in Tal-
lahassee. In it, he reveals that
arsenic levels in urine samples
submitted earlier by Dr. Lex
are not dangerous. Dr. Johnson
states that, "The inorganic ar-
senic for both is well below the
level of arsenic that is likely to
cause health effects."
The urinalysis results do
not conclusively disprove the'
idea that several local patients
were negatively affected by
unhealthy levels of arsenic.
The nature of arsenic, which
is a naturally occurring ele-
ment but is most famous as a
poison, makes it possible that
dangerous levels' could remain
in the body after a urinalysis
indicates otherwise.
The data compiled by Dr.
Lex details illnesses and vari-
ous symptoms suffered by the
48 patients, all of whom she
had seen during her brief tenure
at the Fraser Hospital clinic. Of
those patients, 34 were female,
14 male. It was an older group;
the average age was 65, with
the oldest coming in at 83.
Sixty-five percent of the
patients in Dr. Lex's study suf-
fered from high blood pres-
sure. 58 percent had a glucose
intolerance. Perhaps most seri-
ously, 37 percent had skin can-
cer or lesions, 37 percent had
colon polyps or colon cancer
while 35 percent had either -
kidney cancer or kidney cysts.
23 percent had lung nodules,
or small masses of tissue in the
lung that" could represent the
early stages of cancer. And 29
percent of Dr. Lex's patients
suffered some kind of thyroid
dysfunction. According to the
physician, all of these symp-
tons are consistent with the ob-
served effects of heavy metal
"As a physician," Dr. Lex
wrote in her cover letter, "I am
aggressively pursuing answers
on behalf of my patients; how-
ever, as a resident and parent I

So there'smore, tq it than po-
sitioning Winn-Dixie to compete
with the new Wal-Mart,which put
a dent in its sales when it opened
[the company declines to release
figures, but claims its Macclenny
traffic is starting to come back
after the initial slump].
For years the grocery indus-
try's leading player in the South,
Winn-Dixie emerged from bank-
ruptcy recently a reorganized
company with new management
and directors. It closed dozens
of poorly performing stores and
now says it is launching an ag-
gressive re-run at competitors
like Publix and now Wal-Mart
and Target.
How important is the Mac-
clerny re-design?
According to store man-'
ager Tom Debruhl, it's impor-
tant enough to bring CEO Peter
Lynch to Macclenny frequently.
His most recent visit was Mon-
* day of this week. Mr. Debruhl
joked recently he probably has
the distinction of being the "most
visited by the brass" among the
chain's local managers.
Mr. Carrado said the remodel-
ing corporate-wide is on an ag-
gressive schedule; 40 stores are
in line by the end of June and
next fiscal year [starting July 1]
the company will do 75 stores
and stay on that annual schedule
until all Winn-Dixie's 521 stores
in five Southeastern states are re-
And it's all starting in Mac-
The final design is a mix of
what seems to be working for
other chains, feedback from the
shopping public collected by con-
sultants, color experts, customer
comments and observations by
individual store managers.
"This is not just shooting from
the hip. It's the result of a lot of
factors and customer feedback

is the most important," observes
Mr. Carrado.
The Macclenny project, for
instance. included a revamped
produce section designed to jump
out at customers as they enter the
store. Subtleties like color codes
and a light flooring scheme are
supposed to direct shoppers to
products, and Mr. Carrado in-
corporated curved shelving into
"compartment" sections of space
displaying cooking, baking prod-
ucts, health care and other mer-
Customers over the past few
months may have noticed the
exterior color scheme changed
several times before officials de-
cided they got it right. The colors
are earth-tone and soft like the
interior designed to give off an
overall "comfortable" feeling.

how it turned out. Everything

Baker County's health statis-

are worse than the state aver-
age. The death rates for heart

In on-record comments since
her dismissal, Dr. Lex said Mr.
Markos warned her before her
firing that she was hired to prac-
tice medicine, not turn Fraser
Hospital into a research clinic.
He also accused her of not
being a "team player" and play-
ing "Joan of Arc" by expressing

still suspects are caused by envi-
ronmentally-related toxins.

physician who resigned from the
Fraser clinic named after him to
take a job at Northeast Florida

Advancing summer calls to mind summers

spent long ago


Going to the beach for our
annual family vacation was the
ultimate experience of my young
life. Through the winter months,
when temperatures plunged into
the 30s at night and wind and
sometimes sleet rattled outside
the windows, I would think of
the beach house at Pawleys Is-
land where we vacationed for a
week each summer.
The house, which rose above
the street on stilts, afforded us a
wonderful view of the ocean be-
yond the sea oat- covered dunes.
The house's porch stretched its
entire width and was filled with
comfortable, old worn chairs
and sofas and a hammock where
the family hung out lazily after
a large meal. For us kids, it was
hard to wait those two manda-
tory hours after eating, which
ensured we wouldn't develop
stomach cramps and drown -
at least that's what the grown-
ups had us believe. They prob-
ably just needed a break from
the noise and chaos of watching
excited kids who couldn't get
enough of the sun and surf and
would never have come back in-
side of their own accord.
I loved the way the waves
crashed past the pilings under
the pier, creating shallow de-
pressions which sucked at your
feet when the water receded.
The view from the end of the
pier afforded an exciting glimpse
of schools of sting rays as they
darted past, on their way to some
mysterious destination, far away
under the murky depths.
On the marsh side of Pawleys
Island were scores of small pri-
vately owned piers with roofs,
wonderful for lazy fishing or
bird watching. In those days,
they were open to anyone to use.
We made a trip the day before to
get chicken necks from the gro-
cery store which we left out in

rial 'Transformerbased movie
it .__.


I just saw a trailer for a new
summer movie. Transformers
is based on the toy that took the
1970s by storm.
You've seen transformers. In
fact, you might have owned one.
Or two. Or a dozen. By the time
they came out, I was too old to
buy transformers. Come to think
of it, I never even wanted one.
Transformers were cars, but
not just any cars. They revolved
and turned and snapped to form
battling robot machines. There
were good-transformers and
there were bad transformers.
Now there's a bad transformer
Of course, transformers aren't
the first toy that has had a movie
named after them. There were
Care Bears and Smurfs and
He-Man and even Hot Wheels.
In my mind, last year's Cars is
based on Hot Wheels.
But this is, as far as I can tell,
the first big budget, live action
movie based on a toy. And I hope
the last.
I can't quite imagine what
the premise for this movie could
be, and I hope I never find out.
I certainly don't intend to buy a
movie ticket.
Hmm. If this movie is a hit,
I wonder what other toys might
be made into movies? Let's see,
let me project ahead a few years
ahead after Transformers the
movie is a huge hit.
Naturally, the pundits and
moguls will jump on board and
create dozens of spinoffs. Here's
just a few that I forsee.

with jointed arms and legs.
However, the mission goes
awry when Joe encounters a ra-

School district asked to

name stadium for ex-coach

Press Staff
A former Baker County
school superintendent this week
asked the school board to name
Memorial Stadium in Macclen-
ny after Tom Covington, a re-
tired teacher and revered Baker
High football coach during the
Tim Starling, who stated
during the April 2 meeting at
the Taylor Church that he was
speaking on behalf of "hundreds
of young men who have played
football over the years," request-
ed the board to consider naming
the football stadium the Tom
Covington Stadium.
Mr. Starling acknowledged
that the stadium is currently
called Memorial Field and is
called such to honor the commu-
nity's veterans. He also pointed
out that in many situations ath-
letic fields have one name and
the stadiums located on them are
dedicated to a different entity.
'I've spoken to many who
played football under Coach
Covington ... and they are all
very enthusiastic," said Mr. Star-
ling. "At this point, I don't think
there is anyone who would re-
gret having the stadium named
for the coach."
According to the former
school chief, Mr. Covington,

who is aware of the request, has
stated "the greatest blessing and
reward is being considered for
this honor."
The board will consider the
request and take action at a fu-
ture date.

board meeting, leaking roofs at

Dies after

diving mishap
(from page 1)
Witnesses including the sister
of Pender L. Raulerson of Taylor
said he dove off a sand embank-
ment while swimming with a
group of friends about 4:30 pm
on March 24. The victim ap-
peared to flip over when his body
hit the shallow river bottom, then
floated on the surface for about
two minutes before the others re-
alized he was in distress.
Lt. Glen Gnann quoted ac-
quaintance Matthew Ross, 18, of
Macclenny as saying he thought
the victim was "kidding around"
immediately after the ill-fated
dive, and he was unresponsive:
\\hen Mr. Ross retrieved him
and brought him back to the river'
bank. Others at the popular rec-
reation and swimming area per-
formed CPR on Mr. Raulerson
before rescue workers arrived.
Mr. Raulerson was first taken
to Fraser Hospital, then flown to
Shands Jacksonville where he
The river water is tainted a
dark brown and as a result the
river bed and obstructions under
the surface are often difficult to
discern. The Boy Scout landing
off Steel Bridge Road, owned
and maintained by the county,
has been the scene of similar ac-
cidents, as have other stretches
of the river.
The 10th grade student was
the son of Pender and Ida Raul-
erson Sr. and his funeral was held
on March 31.

Deputy Starling, James Rhoden,
50, believes that an object was
likely thrown at his window.
Lorrena Whitehead, 40, of
Glen St. Mary said the license
plate was stolen off her 1997
Chevrolet. Ms. Whitehead told
Deputy Michael Lagle on March
29 she brought her car to Rus-
sell's Automotive to be repaired.
When she came back the next
day to pick it up, she noticed the
license plate missing. Garage
employees told Deputy Lagle
the license plate was still on the
car when they test drove it.

Ms. Benton, who has been
involved in organizations such
as Students Against Destruc-
tive Behavior, Buckle Up and
Don't Drink and Drive, became
involved in helping produce the
DUI program as a service to the
community. It is traditionally
held just prior to prom weekend.
"Young folks mistakenly be-
lieve they are invincible and
nothing bad can happen to them,
but that isn't reality," says Dep-
uty Benton. "Hopefully, some-
thing like this shocks them into
thinking 'Hey, all this drinking

departments as well as Florida
Highway Patrol respond to the
911 call. Some victims are pro-
nounced dead and the funeral
home removes the bodies. Those
who can be saved are taken away
to hospitals. If the situation had
been authentic, Trauma One or
Life Flight helicopters would
be on the scene. The survivors
without life-threatening injuries
are administered sobriety tests
and, if necessary, arrested.
The deputies visit the homes
of victims to deliver the sad
news about their loved ones.
"We're not doing this to scare
you unnecessarily," Sheriff
Dobson told the crowd of 1300
teenagers. "But we want you to
survive, to become our future
leaders, to enjoy all the good
things life has in store for you."
Ms. Benton reported that fol-
lowing past mock DUI events,
she has had requests from stu-

dents wanting the Sheriff's de-
partment to escort them to the
prom to make sure they get there
and back home safely. She also
confesses that she still gets a lit-
tle choked up when she hears the
Kenny Chesney song at the end
of the program.
Similar programs are staged
routinely throughout Florida.
Fire Inspector David Mogen of
the Miami Beach Fire Rescue
sums up the program's hoped-
for results:
"If experience is the best
teacher, then the goal is to sub-
stitute an actual experience with
a realistic educational experi-
ence that can be used as a refer-
ence for good judgment."

Relayfor Life held at the Baker Countyfairgrounds
Rex Hollo'wav and Sus Austill, both cancer survivors, show off their signature purple T-shirts during the Relay For Life
find raiser March 31. Chairman Geneva Rhoden presented the Courage Award to Nancy Parker who moved to Mac-
clenny two years ago and has survived numerous cancer episodes. The day-long Relay for Life events take place across the
country and help raise cancer awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society. Dr. Kyle Brown, who conducted the
prayer prior to the mid-day meal for participating cancer survivors said "We thank God for each day and each breath."
During the meal, members of the Southern Joy singing group sang an acapella medley of hymns and the 4-H Clover-
leaf Cloggers performed. Two new events this year were a breakfast which earned $280 and an indoor yard sale. Jessica
Hope Davis (left in photo below) donated 22 inches of her hair to the "Locks of Love" program that makes wigs for can-
cer patients. She is shown with local cosmetologist Carol Maley, a longtime ACS volunteer. Also, the Macclenny Women's
Club raffled off a purse to Eddie Moore of Macclenny, cooler and chair to Tamia Ellwood and Easter basket to Alan Tillis.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday April 5, 2007 Page 12

It was an up and down week
for the Lady Wildcat softball
team. They defeated Baldwin in
a squeaker on Tuesday at home
and then fell to a tough Alachua
team on the road Thursday. The
Lady Cats continue to search for
consistency as the season wraps
The girls got off to a good
start with their 9-7 home victory
over the Indians that saw Caitlin
Griffis crack two home runs. It
was a back and forth affair, with
the Lady Cats relying on a six-
run sixth inning to clinch the
The Cats got off to a slim one-
run lead when Tiffany Smith
cracked a solo home run in the
first inning. It certainly was the
night of the long ball. The Wild-
cats got their second run in the
second inning with a towering
homer from'Griffis.'-
-But Baldt in- 'came clawing
back in the third inning, taking
the lead with a three-run third.
They added a single run in the
fourth inning to pad the lead.
Brittany Hansen tied the
score in the fourth, doubling and
stretching it to third base. A Kris-
ten Smith ground-out brought
her in to knot the score at 4-4.
But Baldwin looked as if it
snatched the win in the sixth in-
ning with a three runs. The way
the game had been going, the
three runs might have been the
distance. But at that point the

Wildcat bats woke up and ex-
ploded for six runs of their own.
Heather High singled and
Griffis brought her in with her
second home run of the game.
Hansen singled and advanced to
second on an error. A Bridgett
Williams single brought her
Williams made second, then
Jessi Nunn walked and advanced
on an error. Tiffany Smith walked
and Ashley Holton single scored
Williams and Nunn. Heather
High loaded the bases when she
was hit by a pitch and a Griffis
walk scored Smith for the win.
Griffis' pair of home runs was
the highlight of the game. Han-
sen doubled and Smith had'a
home run. Hansen was 3-4 and
Williams 2-4. Griffis and Holton
were 2-3.
The Cats had trouble defen-
sively orn Thursday, giving up
nine hits as Alachua Santa Fe de-
feated Baker High for the second
time in as many weeks 1-3. The
Raiders went up to a two-run
lead with single runs in the first
and second innings.
The Wildcats' lone run came
in the third on a solo home run
by Ashley Holton. The Raiders
sealed the game with a run in the
fifth inning. Kristen Smith was
2-2 to lead BCHS.
The Cats will host West Nas-
sau on April 9 and Yulee on April
10 at 6 pm.

Merritt Island proves to be

too much in

The Wildcat varsity baseball
team knew the deck was stacked
against it when it took on Mer-
ritt Island on Friday of last week.
They were facing a very good
team a very long way from
But that didn't dampen the en-
thusiasm of Coach John Staples'
team. As Staples said in the past,
"if you can't bring yourselves up
to play a terrific opponent then
you don't need to wear the red
and white uniform."
In the end, Meritt Island would
leave Baker County on the win-
ning end of a 5-2 score. But they
were impressive and scrappy.
Merritt Island started the game
at 15-2 and put their top hurler
on the mound. Staples countered
with the number-two man in his
rotation, Dustin Rowe. Neither
pitcher came away from the first
inning untouched.
Baker scored first with two
runs off the 6-0 Merritt Island
pitcher and looking very danger-
ous. But the Meritt Island was
not particularly hospitable, com-
ing back to score two runs of
their own in the first inning.
.With the score at 2-2, both
pitchers settled down and the
defense took over. Last week,
Coach Staples called his defense
one of the best in the state and
they looked that way for the next
seven innings. They didn't give
up a run to Merritt Island. But
they aren't 16-2 without a strong
defense of their own, and they

extra innings

kept the Wildcats scoreless into
extra innings.
The game went to the ninth in-
ning when Merritt Island finally
cracked open the tough nut that
was BCHS. They scored three
runs in the ninth to take the win.
Kirk High blasted a triple to
lead BCHS. Merritt Island an-
swered with a pair of doubles in
the win.
The Wildcat season record
stands at 13-6.

Best teams went head to head...again



Even in the world of sports,the
idea that two teams would face
off the same year for the national
championship in football and
basketball is, to say the least, an
almost impossible coincidence.
But it has happened and at this
writing on Sunday afternoon, the
outcome is still in doubt.
Three months after Ohio State
and Florida squared off for the
NCAA football title, they once
again are playing for all the mar-
bles-this time on the basketball
court: Monday night, the Buck-
eyes and the Gators will take the

court for the national title.
For the Gators it is the second
improbabe reunion. Saturday
night, the Gators met the UCLA
Bruins in the semi-finals. Last
year, the Gators beat the Bruins
handily in the finals to capture
the NCAA crown.
They beat the Bruins this time
by 10 points in a game that was
not nearly that close. The Ga-
tors almost immediately put the
Bruins into foul trouble, and the
Californians struggled all night
long to dig themselves out of the
hole they had dug.
The Gators didn't play partic-
ularly well. Taurean Green had a
hard time holding on to the drib-
ble. Time and again they threw
the ball away. But with their big
guns on the bench much of the
night, UCLA couldn't capitalize

on a less than effective Gator of-

Florida played as well as it
had to, and at tinies in the second
half, brilliantly. They will need
all that brilliance on Monday
against the Buckeyes.
Ohio State is bent on revenge
for the loss in football. But they
are even more bent on revenge
for a 26-point drubbing earlier
this season at the hands of UF.
Don't be mistaken, this Buckeye
team is much better than the one
that lost to Florida earlier in the
They have a dominant center
in Greg Oden, but they are not a
one man team. If anyone can stay
with the Gators, it is Ohio State.
Or not. If Florida comes to
play and shakes off the case of
nerves they had against UCLA,
it could be a long night for the
red, white and silver. Florida has
all the guns. They can kill you on
the inside, they shoot the lights
out from the outside. They. can
bring in guys off the bench who
can do the same. They're just
I.am-anxious to see this game.
The sports channels will be exer-
cising all the hype that they can,
but the game will be won or lost
on the court.
One thing's for sure, it will
decide the best team in the coun-
