Seeks to


'fine tune


family lot


re-zoning
The county's planning and
zoning department is recom-
mending a further "fine tuning"
of the provision in the land de-
velopment regulations allow-
ing families to transfer prop-
erty to relatives, even though
the newly established tracts are
technically non-complying.
Planning director Ed Pres-
ton broached the subject dur-
ing the April 26 meeting of the
Local Planning Agency, the.
volunteer board that screens
zoning change requests.
County commissioners say
they would like to streamline
the "family lot" section of the
code beyond its present lan-
guage that addresses areas like
the one-acre minimum and re-
strictions on the "parent" par-
cel to be subdivided.
"This provision and section
of the Code needs to be re-
fined," reads a memo by coun-
ty manager Joe Cone passed
on to the planning board by
Mr. Preston last week. "The
present 'family lot' language,
although well intentioned, has
created a great deal of frus-
tration for the public and the
staff. The process often results
in time and consuming comp
plan amendments, rezpring
and variance hearings, and
considerable time and expense
for the applicant."
The memo was also present-
ed to the county board during
its regular meeting on Tuesday
of this week.
The county several years
ago tightened the rules on such
transactions to prevent family
members who had been grant-
ed exceptions from re-selling
property to non-related, third
parties. The effect of "flipping"
property in 'that manner was
often an illegal subdivision.
The county staff will be rec-
ommending these changes:
VAdd parcels zoned RCMH
2.5 to those allowed for "fam-
ily lot" consideration. Cur-
rently they are allowed only in
AG-10 and AG 7.5 zones.
VLift the restriction that the
"parent lot" must have been a
legal lot and recorded before
1991 when the code was ad-
opted.
V Lengthen the time a fam-
ily member must reside on the
newly carved parcel from one
to three years.
VRecord the "family lot" so
future title searches will reveal
it was created with the multiple
conditions.
The county already re-
quires myriad elements to be
in place before the exceptions
are granted, things like a one-
acre minimum and only one

A sea o0lVC'washes over I-10 shoulder as semi-truck loses load..
It was a mess tha took a while to clean up on the south shoulder of Interstate 10 the afternoon of March 27 as thousands of small-gauge plastic pipes fell off the overturn-
ing trailer of an eastbound semi-truck. Trooper DL. Myers said the rig drifted off the south shoulder about 3:30, causing the load to shift and pull both the trailer and 2007
Mack tractor to overturn. Driver Daniel Davis, 49, of Lake City received minor injuries. The vehicles initially blocked only the outside lane, but both lanes shut down when
the wrecker trucks moved them out of the roadway.


Trialunderway in double 'burial' deaths


A trial began in Jacksonville
on Tuesday of this week of one
of four persons accused of kill-
ing an infirm Jacksonville cou-
ple in the summer of 2005 by
burying them alive in a remote
area of Charlton County, Ga.
just north of the state line.


One of the defendants,
Bruce Nixbn, 19, of Macclen-
ny, entered a plea March 12 to
twin counts of second-degree
manslaughter in the deaths of
Reggie and Carol Sumner, both.
61, who were kidnapped from
their home in the St, Nicholas


. section of Jacksonville's south-
side.
Mr. Nixon, a Baker High
dropout with a prior arrest re-
cord, is set for sentencing in
June and is expected to testify
against Michqel J. Jackson, 24,
who went on trial this week,'

Mr. Nixon also pled to twin

armed kidnapping.

BY ANDREW BARE
Press Staff
The Baker County Commis-
sion gave Clerk of Courts Al
Fraser permission to pursue a
$386,000 loan with Mercantile
Bank for purchase of several
pieces of equipment.
The county will use approx-
imately $42,000 of the money
to buy a vibratory roller, a piece
of road equipment used to
compact rocks and soil. Road
superintendent Robert Fletch-
er diverted approximately
$30,000 of his budget toward
the purchase of the $72,000
vehicle. The county made up
the rest of the cost in the pur-
chase from Ring Power.
The remaining $344,000
of the loan will be used to
buy two new fire trucks plus
assorted fire equipment like
walkie-talkies and tools. The
trucks are scheduled to arrive
on May 22.
The commission empow-
ered Mr. Fraser to negotiate
with Mercantile to lower the
bank's proposed interest rate
of 4.5 percent. Mr. Fraser will
also try to get Mercantile to
Waive potential closing fees,
though he said Tuesday he
wasn't optimistic about that ef-
fort.
In other business before
the commission Tuesday eve-
ning, the board gave the Baker

About the time this photo was taken on Tuesday afternoon, the Baker County Commission passed an emergency resolution
banning all outdoor burning (except attended cooking equipment) pending further notice. Here, assistant county fire chief Keith
Thrift surveys the remains of a wildfire off Cowpen Rd. northwest of Glen St. Mary that sent state and local crews scurrying to
prevent a start-up in tinder-dry woodlands the result of a long drought over northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Several
hundred square miles of woodlands similar to the one Tuesday have been scorched by a two-week-old fire in Ware County, Ga. that
has drawn national attention. The ban will be lifted when conditions permit.


Ex-Glen councilmember dies in wreck


A veteran truck driver and former two-term
member of the Glen St. Mary Town
Council died the morning of April 27
when his tractor-trailer overturned in
Bradford County after colliding with
another eastbound vehicle that was
making a left-hand turn.
Alfred W. Godwin, 62, was taken
from the scene after the 10:00 am ac-
cident and pronounced dead at UF '
and Shands Starke hospital. The driv- .
er of the turning pickup truck and a
passenger received minor injuries.
Trooper D.R. Bazinet said Mr.
Godwin, a 14-year veteran driver for
Pritchett Trucking of Lake Butler, i '
was behind a 2004 Ford pickup driv- Mr.

vehicle slowed to make the turn into a
private driveway.
The semi driven by Mr. Godwin
hauling wood chips struck the left
side of the pickup, sending it into the
south shoulder where it came to rest.
The semi overturned onto its left side,
blocking both travel lanes of SR 100
east of Starke.
The pickup passenger was identi-

'Ride with Fire' raises $7000+
A motorcycle rider with a shirt adorned with the name ofa Tallahassee riding club
was among an estimated 150 drivers and riders who hopped on their bikes the
morning of April 28 in Glen St. Mary for the fourth annual benefit to raise money for
the Baker County fire departments. She listens to a pre-ride briefing by John End,
one of the organizers (center, standing atop truck). Flanking Mr. End are county chief
Richard Dolan (left) and chaplain Doug Allen. The 84-mile course west through the
Osceola National Forest was traversed by 113 bikes; the event was followed by a
bike rodeo.

lifetirie: Those are in addition to
requirements of the application
process. itself (evidence of rela-
tionship, proof of homestead on
the parent tract, etc.).
In other business April 26,
the planning board:
Agreed once more to send
up a recommendation for re-.
zoning by Robert Gray so he
can construct a home on a half-
acre parcel adjoining his cur-
rent residence on Larimer Rd.
of Woodlawn Rd. The county
commission earlier turned down
the request when neighbors ob-
jected.
Mr. Gray argued then and
again last week the parcel was
clearly twin lots when he pur-
chased it, as are several others
in the area. He has met other re-
quirements for the application,
including capping off an exist-
ing well.
The matter will once again be
scheduled for a hearing before
the county board, which acts as
its own zoning board.
Requests for variances to
Baker County's sign ordinance
will be sent up to the commis-
sion with a recommendation for
approval. All are on tracts slated
for development and 4X8 foot
surface areas are requested, ex-
ceeding the maximum 2X3 foot
allowed by the code.
The signs are soughtby Baker
900, LLC (Enterprise Business
Park) between US 90 and In-
terstate 10 near Arnold Rhoden
Rd.; for the Osceola Reserve de-
velopment for placement on CR
125 and Noah Raulerson Rd.;
For Navona Creek for place-
ment on CR 125 and Claude
Harvey Rd.
Barry Weber, who lives near.
the proposed business park, told
the panel he was "in shock" that
the tract was being considered
for that use. He was reminded
the planning board was consid-
ering only the sign request, and
requisite re-zoning for commer-
cial use will require future hear-
ings..
The planning staff approved
administratively a request by
Kristina Sondrini for a "family
lot" designation on 2.7 acres on
Shirley Rd. off SR 121 south
even though it did not fall in the
minimum AG 10 zoning desig-
nation.


Recommended a compro-
mise that will allow Calvin
Raulersoni a culvert off Odis
Yarbrough Road 120 feet from
a teeder road into St. Marys
Shoals Park instead of the mini-
mum 140 feet. Mr. Raulerson
told the planning board he was
given the impression by the
county road department that the
culvert would be allowed on the
west portion of his lot, and po-
sitioned the garage of his home
on that side.

County Health Department the
go-ahead to start laying con-
crete for its proposed skate park,
perhaps as' soonr as-Thursday.
However, members: expressed
concern over the modified plan
presented by 'planning director
Ed Preston, namely, the inclu-
sion of a private vendor's kiosk
on the park's property.
"I'm concerned about this
vendor's kiosk," Commissioner
Julie Combs said. "... (with-
out) seeing if any other similar
businesses in the county (is in-
terested). I want to make sure
the county can't be held liable
if someone else is in control of
the property and they don't go
through proper procedures."
Commissioner Combs and
the other board members were
concerned with the bidding pro-
cedures for the kiosk's vendor.
The county has leased the land
to the health department, and
state regulations say govern-
ment entities must submit these
kind of proposals to an open
bidding process. The question
the commissioners asked was
whether the health department
would be required to meet those
procedures, and, if they did not,
whether the county would be
held liable for that failure.
County'Manager Joe Cone
vowed to look into the matter, as
well as to draw up. a more de-
tailed county-department lease

sult in Baker getting $200,000
to improve the general camping
and boating facilities near the
river. However, it would require
the county to pony up match-
ing tunds, and Commissioner
Gordon Crews admitted that the
county didn't have $200,000.
The commission decided, how-
ever, to go ahead with the grant
application and deal with the
matching funds if the applica-
tion is accepted.
County Manager Cone told
the board that inspections of the
air handling system at the county
courthouse came up negative for
mold. IAQ, an air quality com-
pany in Jacksonville, did tell
Mr. Cone that loose insulation
was a problem in several vents.
The company speculated that
the insulation, which would be
carried by the air stream to offic-
es around the courthouse, might
be the cause of complaints from
courthouse staff.
Mr. Cone was authorized* to
see if there's any company in


for the land.
Board members also decided
this week to discuss at a public
hearing the state's recent deci-
sion to amend upward the low-
\inconme" homestead exemption
courities can offer fioin '25,000
to $50,000. Under previous state
law, counties had the option to
raise the standard $25,000 home-
stead exemption to $50,000 for
people 65 or older making less
than $24,214 a year. The modi-
fications to the law would al-
low Baker County to raise that
exemption to the $75,000 level.
The commission's next meeting
and public hearing is scheduled
for May 21.
Supervisor of Elections Nita
Crawford informed the, board
of a special election to replace
state senator Nancy Argenziano,
who will take a position on the
Florida Public Service Commis-
sion. The primary election will
be held on June 5; the general
election on June 26. The costs
will be paid by the county, but
the state will reimburse in Sep-
tember.
The commission decided
unanimously to send off two,
related grant applications for
the St. Marys Shoals Park to
the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection. The first
grant, if accepted, would give
Baker County $65,000 to build

The county's planning direc-

most in passing last week during
a meeting of the Local Planning
Agency that he believes the
current sign ordinance adopted
three years ago could use some
updating.


Mr. Preston offered the opin-
ion that violations of the coun-
ty's sign code are numerous
but have been allowed to slide.
They certainly don't fall within
the definition of common cases
brought before the county's
Code Enforcement Board.

How they look is a reflection

Forgetting what you've ridden


MY SIDE OF

THE MATTER
ROBERT GERARD
Yawn.
Big Yawn.
Heavy drooping eyelids.
Two weekends ago, I was up
all night partying with the se-
niors. No, I'm not talking about
the Council on Aging, though
they're a pretty fun bunch, I'm
talking about the Class of 2007
at Baker County High School.
Before you call your school
board member to report that
Gerard was at some wild high
school party, I was at Grad Bash
at Universal Studios in Orlando.
Grad Bash, for the uninformed, is
Universal's answer to Grad Nite
at Disney World. High schools
from all over the state come to
Orlando to ride rides, and dance
the night away with big name
and medium-name bands.
The big name band for this
party was My Chemical Ro-
mance. If you don't know who
they are, it shows you have been
gapped. My son and his buddies
were in the front row of the con-
cert and were pretty impressed. I
was not. As a long time grad par-
ty-goer, I know that when the top
bands are playing is the best time
to ride the popular attractions.
Actually, by the time the concert
rolled around at midnight, I think
my feet hurt and I was looking
for someplace to sit down.
I'm not as young as I used
to be. Ten or fifteen years ago I
could ride as many attractions as
the high schoolers and not bat an
eye. Now my eyes aren't just bat-
ting they're drooping as the
clock passes midnight. Over the
years I've traveled with chaper-
ones like Betty Sands, Carmean
Johnson and Fay Sinclair. who
knew all the best places to put
up one's feet and relax while the
party raged on.
I've noticed also that I don't
remember things quite as clearly
as I did.
I was getting ready to ride the
Mummy Returns, one of the hot
ticket rides at Universal. Mark
Hartley and Johnnie Jacobs and
I were standing in line. My wife
doesn't do fast rides and neither
does Mark's wife Ronda.
"I don't think I've been on this


ride before," I said as we pre-
pared to leave the chicken-heart-
ed women and.join the throng.
"Yes you have," said Kelley.
"We were just here in the fall and
you and the boys rode it."
"Nah. I don't remember."
Sure enough, as soon as I got
on the ride, it all came back and
I remembered how much I loved
it. The remainder of the night,
the same thing happened over
and over.
"I don't think I've-been on the
Spiderman ride."
"Yes you have and you loved
it." She was right again.
We rode Men in Black and it
happened again. I swore up and
down I hadn't ridden on the Su-
percoaster, The Hulk. Wrong
again.
"You know, Bob," said Mark
Hartley, "this is a sure sign of ag-
ing. Ronda claims I forget things
all the time."
"He does," said Ronda. "Par-
ticularly things I tell him."
Brother, do I wish that she
hadn't said that. That triggered
Kelley, who claims I haven't re-
membered a single thing she has
told me in five years.
"I'll tell him something and
he will swear up and down that I
haven't said it."
"I don't believe that you actu-
ally have. I think that you're us-
ing my diminishing mental fac-
ulties as an excuse because you
forgot to tell me something in the
first place."
"See what I have to*live with?"
Kelley shrugged.
"Mark does the same thing,"
said Ronda. "I think that's true of
all men."
"How about it, Johnnie?"
"Don't get me in on this,"


waved off Jacobs.
"He pleads the Fifth," I said.
"In the defense of men, let me
say this one thing."
"Here it comes," said Kelley.
"I believe we men are geneti-
cally stamped with much smaller
memories than women. We can
only remember a tiny percentage
of all the things our wives tell us.
We can't help it. It's just the way
we are."
I believe that and I can prove
it.
All you men, just think about
the last time that your wife did
something to offend you. You
might have been miffed, maybe
even a few heated words passed
your lips. But I guarantee with-
in a couple of days you forgot
the whole thing. In fact, if she
brought it up, you'd have to be
reminded of what she was talk-
ing about.
Now think of the last time
you did something to offend
your wife. Heated words, sleep
on the couch, all that. In a few
days it might have blown over.
But don't be misled. Somewhere
in the vast computer-like mem-
ory banks that are a woman's
brain,,that slight is still lurking
there, ready to be recalled at a-
moment's notice if the occasion
arises.
That occasion might not arise
until years later at a family re-
union when she'll trot out the
time in .1985 when you forgot
her anniversary.
I'm not saying it's happened
to me. I'm only speaking hypo-
thetically, of course. So if I for-
get riding the Mummy Returns
or Men in Black, cut me a little
slack.
I'm just a guy.

and that's the key. Both city and

keep them close to the ground
- eye level when practical.
Signs and billboards along
the interstate are a bit different,
but they also should be kept to
minimum size and height.
Take the new Wal-Mart, for
instance. A towering sign an-
nounces its location to inter-
state traffic, and another tower-
ing sign greets motorists on SR
228 at the main entrance as
if people on 228 don't know
where it is.
Macclenny and Glen St.
Mary are going to face the same
challenge on US 90. If tight con-
trols are not put into place now,
that stretch will soon blossom


Reminiscing


real cowboys"
My family never raised cows,
but many of our neighbors did.
Each spring their cows always
managed to get through the fence
that bordered
our creek, cross TH
over and graze 1TH
happily all day
in my father's PO R
lower pasture.
As evening de- KELLEYLA
scendedd they
made their way slowly up the
trail and meandered through
the woods that surrounded our
house.
By late evening, when we
were all asleep, they arrived in
the yard to spend the rest of the
night milling around the house.
The next morning they had van-
ished, but the yard would be
full of hoof prints, flowers and
shrubs would be trampled and
there would be cow poop as far
as the eye could see.
We got used to jumping the
piles as we made our way across
the yard to walk to the bus stop.
It aggravated the daylights out
of my mother, who would turn
on the garden hose and angrily
blast the offending objects into
oblivion while complaining
loudly.
Coming home from visiting
friends this past Easter Sunday,
I encountered a herd of about 20
longhorn steers, a bull, several
heifers and some calves who de-
cided to hang out in the middle
of SR 125 a few miles north of
Glen St. Mary. Just when they
seemed to be moving clear of
the road, they'd suddenly turn
and dart back in the opposite
direction. This went on for 25
minutes, causing cars to slam
on brakes and traffic to back up.
A deputy showed up and sev-
eral motorists pulled over, got
out and began shooing the herd
away. They found an opening in
a fence and off they went, finally
clearing the road.
Ed Wilkinson tells me he re-
members when there were no
fence laws and cows ranged free
all over the woods in the Clay
Hill community near Maxville
where he has lived for decades.
In those days, a man branded his
cows so he could identify and

landscape. They, too, need to be
phased out to create a more uni-
form commercial district.
The county, Glen St. Mary
and Macclenny should establish
a joint committee of volunteers,
people with both expertise and
good taste, to advise them on
matters like signs, landscap-
ing and other aesthetics that jell
together to make a community
look good.
With commercialization yet
to take take on key arteries like
SR 228, CR 125 in south Glen
and the US 90 corridor, there
couldn't be a better time to
merge ordinances into a uniform
code.
The county administration
should take the lead in this ef-
fort and make something

separate them from others when
necessary.
Ed once got wind that a fella
named Griner had a cow that
had jumped
SA / the fence and
ICK 1. was eating up
people's yards.
CH A $50 reward
was offered
NNIGAN for anyone
who could pen
the cow. Since $50 was a lot of
money in those times, the road
became filled with folks in cars
and trucks cruising up and down
hoping to spot the cow and col-
lect the reward.
Ed and his friend JC Nolan
loaded up their horses and drove
them to the edge of the woods
where the cow was last seen.
They rode into the woods and
soon stumbled upon the outlaw
cow. They found an aggravat-
ing section of barbed wire fence,
too. Every time they got near
the cow she jumped the fence.
Finally, the cow got tangled and
down she went. They got a rope
around her and off JC went to
bring the truck down into the
woods.
He never came back. It seemed
hours went by and Ed was practi-
cally sitting on the cow's head to
keep hold of her. Just as Ed gave
out, JC suddenly reappeared.
The truck had gotten stuck and
he was covered from head to toe
in mud. Finally, they delivered
the cow and collected the much
deserved reward.
JC and Ed were friends for
nearly 60 years and Ed has vivid
memories of working with JC,
whose family raised cattle for a
living.
"I called him the last cow-
boy," says Ed.
These men did their "cow
boying" during the 1940s and
50s when screw flies and ticks
would eat nearly half a cow's
head off. Wounds were treated
with turpentine.
JC is now deceased, but the
last cowboy is always present in
Ed's heart.
"I respected him. In all those
years, we never exchanged one
cross word," says Ed.

Reducing SIDS risk


with donated bassinets


Sudden Infant Death Sym-
drome (SID) touched Baker
County late last year when 3-
month-old Bryce Finley of Mac-
clenny died in his sleep. He was
a well cared-for and loved baby.
. Kathy Mankinen, past presi-
dent of the Northeast Florida
Healthy Start Coaltion, knew
the Finley family personally and
wanted to do something in mem-
ory of that beautiful baby boy.
From that desire emerged
"Hold Out the Lifeline's Project
Moses," an initiative of the AME
Ministerial Alliance that makes
beautiful bassinets given to fami-
lies in need. They will be distrib-
uted locally through the Healthy

24-hour a day lane closures for
the duration of the project from
Monday at 6:00 am until Friday
at 6:00 am, according to the
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation.
There will be no work allowed
during weekends due to heavier
traffic.
The nine-mile long segment
begins at the Columbia-Baker
county line and ends at the U.S.

son. The entire segment is within
the Osceola National Forest
and there are no exits along the
stretch.

closures. The speed limit will be
reduced to 60 mph when lanes
are closed and workers are pres-
ent, and law enforcement will be

fines are doubled in construction
zones.
The entrance and. exit ramps
to the rest areas will be impacted
during the resurfacing project,
however the rest areas west of
Sanderson will remain open.

pleted on moving the motorist

been completed.
The $8.3 million project
should be completed by fall. The
contractor is Anderson Columbia
Company Inc., of Lake City.


The sheriff's department spe-
cial response team arrested two
occupants of a residence off CR
130 (Mud Lake Road) late on
March 28 while serving a search
warrant that resulted in seizure
of an undisclosed amount of co-
caine.
Booked for possession with
intent to distribute were John D.
(Rocky) Blanton, 43, who oc-
cupied the residence, and Jason
Oralls, 32, who was there when
the team stormed the mobile
home about 10:30. Mr. Oralls
faces an additional count of bat-
tery of an officer and resisting
arrest with violence.
Lt. Gerald Gonzalez, chief of
patrol operations, said the added
charge against Mr. Oralls result-
ed from a struggle with Deputy
Ben Anderson during which he
allegedly shoved the officer,
then attempted to escape from
the trailer.
Mr. Blanton was driving a
vehicle two days earlier when it
was stopped by Deputy Ander-
son on CR 229 south for weav-
ing on the roadway.
Passenger Larry (Bubba)
Harvey, 39, of Sanderson was
arrested for having three pack-
ets of crack cocaine in his right


boot. The officer said he first
observed a "shiny object" on the
suspect's ankle when Mr. Har-
vey exited the vehicle.
Mr. Blanton was given a
warning ticket.
Lt. Gonzalez said he could
not comment further on wheth-
er the traffic stop and warrant
served two days later were re-
lated, because the case is being
referred to federal jurisdiction
and thus may be part of a larger
investigation.
All three suspects have ar-
rest records for drug-related and
other offenses.
In another case, this one
stemming from an arrest in the
early morning hours of April
29, Jeremy Jenkins was charged
with misdemeanor marijuana
possession.
Deputy John Hardin said he
stopped a 2007 Chevrolet pick-
up on Lowder and US 90 about
3:00 after he observed it swerve
out of its northbound lane.
Mr. Jenkins denied using
drugs or alcohol, and consented
to a vehicle search that turned up
a small jar of pot behind an arm
rest. He *vas also ticketed for
driving with a license restricted
to work use.

from their homes.
The two ladies have formed
a non-profit corporation called
The Baker Bunch, which is in
the first stages of fund-raising
to establish just such a facility in
the county.
Foster homes aren't'available,
the ladies contend, and state-run
group homes are not meeting
fundamental needs of teenagers.
Guardians ad Litem represent
the voice of childicri in the court
system and make recommenda-
tions with the children's best in-
terest in mind.
These children come from
some very challenging situa-
tions. Parents may be caught in
a cycle of poverty, alcoholism or
drug use. There may be only one
parent in the household. As a
result of such unstable environ-'
ments children can be subject
to violence, physical, verbal or
sexual abuse or neglect.
Infants and young children
can often be placed with rela-
tives. For those who don't have
that option, there are foster
homes. But for teenagers, the
situation is very different. They
end up housed in group homes
maintained by the state of Flor-
ida and are in locations outside
of Baker County such as Yulee,
Orlando and St. Augustine.
"Foster homes don't want
te-ena[--r." says Ms. White.
"BeCL :iie of their volatile home
experiences, teenagers are often
angry, distrustful and exhibit
behavior problems. Medication
may be used to control the be-
havior. Foster homes turn them
out quickly if they are problem-
atic and they endi up in the state-
run group homes."


Burglar


loot adds


to$11K
The value of stolen jewelry,
a computer, television and other
items from the residence of Eu-
gene and Donna Richardson off
Mud Lake Road on April 26 ex-
ceeds $11,000.
Ms. Richardson called po-
lice when she returned just after
noon and noticed a television
and jewelry box missing from
her bedroom. When the couple
completed an initial inventory
of missing property, the total
came to $11,030. Deputy Garrett
Bennett said there was no sign
of forced entry to the residence
south of Sanderson, and no foot-
prints or tire tracks discernible
on the gravel driveway.
The burglary occurred some-
time after 8:30 that morning,
and a canvas of the neighbors in
the mostly rural area turned up
no concrete leads.
Storage tenant Mary Barrios
said two suitcases and collect-
ibles were taken from her garage
space at Dixie Mini-Storage off
Willis Hodges Rd. in south Mac-
clenny between April 23-26.
Deputy Gavin Sweat noted
a chisel-like device appears to
have been used to force open the
locks at the Barrios garage and
at least ten others. She attached
no monetary value to her miss-
ing property.
Owner Brent Whitney said he
had no intention of notifying po-
lice of the incidents, adding he
would handle an investigation
himself.

Ms. Cabral and Ms. White


re-establish contact with family
as parents lose interest and stop
bothering with their teens.
Ms. White argues that group
homes provide no nurturing or
direction. Teens run away often
and many don't finish school or


up working as prostitutes to
survive. Baker County is losing
many of its teens in this way and
it's tragic."
Ms. White and Ms. Cabral
strongly believe that establishing
a facility like The Baker Bunch


empower teens with skills that
would increase their chances of
ultimately becoming self-sus-
taining and capable of making
good decisions and handling re-
sponsibility.
"We hope to.have a visitor's
center, too," says Ms. Cabral. "A
place where parents or relatives
could visit with the child and
have quality one-on-one time,
even go out and play a game of
basketball if they want."
At present the only place such
visitation takes place is in the
Guardian ad Litem office and is
not adequate, according to the
ladies, to meet the needs of chil-
dren and parents.
The Baker Bunch is apply-
ing for grants and funding from
family friendly foundations to
help make the Baker County
homes a reality. Ms. White and
Ms. Cabral hope to find two
houses one for females, one.

Food bank is feeding



2000 needy a month


or Nancy Foss, Tuesday mornings mean
one thing: helping at Samaritan Center,
a Christian-based food bank operated
by the Baker County Minister's Association lo-
cated on Hwy,90 near Glen St. Mary.

"Everyone here loves God and BY KELLE
so we love fulfilling God's com- Pre.
mandment which is to love one
another," Ms. Foss says.
Inside the clean, well-lit, one room facility the
walls are lined with shelves and freezers hum soft-
ly in the back-
ground. Tabitha -
Smith of St. .,.
George, Ga.,
Jean Hines and
director Denise

of Macclenny
and Ms. Foss, a
Baxter resident,

a delivery of
food items.
About 40
volunteers serve
the organization
,which operates
six days a week
and is funded by
food and mon-
etary donations
from corpora-
tions, churches
and individuals. .-"-
Currently, Sa-

visit. The other
volunteers then
get to work collecting items to fill a "standard food
box" from the resources currently in stock.
According to Ms. Foss, numerous causes .con-
tribute to a person needing food assistance. Clients'
are often referred by churches and are predomi-
nately senior citizens. Many are families struggling
with devastating illness or lost jobs. Many are un-
wed mothers. Some simply do not have adequate
income to meet basic needs.
-She cites a typical example: An elderly couple,
one of whom has a serious health problem, live
on $400 Social Security per month. If their house
were not already paid for, they would be homeless.
Their utility bill alone may be over $200, some-
times more depending on the season. They have to
save all year to pay their taxes.
There isn't much left for groceries.
According to Ms. Melton, Samaritan evaluates
the people they serve on the basis of monthly in-
come, size of family and other services they cur-
rently receive such as food stamps, Medicaid, tem-
porary and public housing assistance. A record is
established on each client and the evaluation infor-
mation forms are the same used by the Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Services' Bureau of
Food Distribution.
Repeat clients are given food once per month
and visits are recorded. A standard food box will
contain bread, pasta, canned goods and coffee
and is prepared according to weight based on how
many people it will serve. A single person typi-
cally receives 13-15 lbs. of food; a family of four or
more receives up to 30 lbs. When perishable items
such as yogurt are in abundance, they are given out
freely. When the center is well stocked with baby
formula, it is given out by the case.
When Samaritan receives food in bulk such as
dried beans or frozen dinner rolls, it is divided into
portions and placed in plastic bags. The workers
wear disposable, plastic gloves when handling food
to insure cleanliness.

Although the typical Samaritan client is a repeat
visitor who is registered with the facility, visitors
who may be passing through and are in need are
also accommodated.
"We will feed anyone once, regardless of level of
need. No one is ever turned away,"
says Ms. Melton.
LANNIGAN Ms. Foss feels lucky to be work-
Staff ing as a volunteer at Samaritan.
S"The organization once helped
my husband and I when we both fell ill at the same
time and were in need. That was a tough time, but
Samaritan really helped us get through it. I wanted
to give back that
.'-Y- same blessing,
S so I became a
volunteer."
Ms. Foss be-
lieves that hav-

helps her truly

S... ents that Samar-
itan serves.
According
to Ms. Foss,
many people
are forced into
asking for help.
They may be
embarrassed
and angry about
S. their situation.
Accepting char-
ity is difficult
and they' don't
always behave
with civility
when they come
to the food
bank.
"But, when
you've walked
in their shoes
S .and I have, it's
dTit ., ith ,,it,,h a standard foo much easier to


PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGAN understand and
deal with their
sometimes brusque attitude," she says.
Samaritan also caters to the spiritual needs of
clients, often before the physical needs. Prayer is a
big part of Samaritan's service if it is needed.
"Everything stops for prayer," the volunteers
say. "Sometimes people are in immediate need of
prayer and the hungry heart takes precedence over
the hungry bod ." . ... ''.
Samaritan receives a lot of support and coopera-
tion from members of the community. Macclenny
citizens or representatives from local organizations
regularly make trips to food distribution centers,
some a good distance away, to pick up donated sur-
plus food. Many farmers donate overage of produce
and eggs. Schools, churches and businesses con-
duct food drives. Organizations like Baker County
sheriff's department routinely helps out with trans-
porting food supplies.
Supporters help out in other ways, too.
Ms. Foss praises her employer Dean Griffis at
The Glen Cash Store, who makes sure her Tuesday
mornings are free so she can volunteer at Samari-
tan. "Mr. Griffis has been great," she says. "He be-
lieves strongly in what we do."
According to volunteers, the only downside of
working at Samaritan is when food supplies dwin-
dle. Since the food bank is stocked by donations,
sometimes there is abundance and variety; other
times the shelves become pretty bare. On occasion
there is no food and the center will not be open
during those times. Yet, that's when the miracles
occur, at least in the eyes of the volunteers.
The shelves will be almost entirely empty and
just when they get ready to close, someone appears
with a large donation.
"Its happened that way so much, it just can't be
coincidence," the volunteers agree. "Its like the
Lord looks down and sees the need and provides."
Samaritan is open Monday through Thursday,
9:00 1:00; Friday and Saturday 11:00 1:00.

Warrant issued for patron

of bar for attack with bottle


A warrant was issued for the
arrest of Brittany Paige, 20, of
Macclenny for repeatedly strik-
ing Ashley Copeland, 22, of
Macclenny with a beer bottle
during an attack outside the
Club 229 north of Sanderson
about 1:00 am on April 28.
Ms. Copeland, who was treat-
ed at the Fraser Hospital emer-
gency room for a large head
laceration, told Deputy John
Hardin Ms. Paige struck her for
"an unknown reason" while the
two talked outside the bar. She
continued to strike her after Ms.
Copeland fell to the ground and
several patrons pulled Ms. Paige
off her, according to the victim
and two witnesses.
The warrant was to be ob-
tained on Monday of this week.
In other reports, sworn com-
plaints resulted from other al-
leged attacks and threats, in-
cluding one at Northeast Florida
State Hospital on April 16 that
was not reported until April 23.
On the earlier date, employ-
ee Adrium Jefferson, 38, of
Sanderson said she had to lock
herself in a nursing station to

who threatened her with a but-

"a killer deal" that got the defen-
d4nt off the hook and deflected a
possible death penalty.
* The four allegedly bound the
couple with duct tape and brought
them to Charlton County in the
trunk of their own vehicle as
part of a robbery scheme. They
buried the Sumners in a shallow
gra% e that had been excavated
thr:e days before the murder.
SIn other court activity in
Jacksonville involving a Baker
County resident, 47-year-old
Theresa Field of Glen St. Mary
was sentenced to three years in
prison for DUI manslaughter in
the death of a woman on Inter-
state 10 inApril, 2005.
:Ms. Field, who had no prior
criminal past and a clean driving
record, was at the wheel of a ve-
hicle that plowed into the rear of
one parked in the emergency lane
just west of Baldwin. The impact
killed Shane M. Schmidt, 32, a
Navy non-commissioned officer
recently returned from Iraq.
Ms. Schmidt was on a cell
phone at the time with her hus-
band, an inmate in a Panama
City prison.
An investigation pegged Ms.
Field's blood alcohol level at
.16, twice that allowed in Flori-
da. The Florida Highway Patrol
estimated she was going 70 mph
when she struck the rear of Ms.
Schmidt's car.
Following the prison sen-
tence, she will be on probation
five years and perform 250 hours
community service. Ms. Field's
driver's license was taken away
for life.

ter knife. Ms. Jefferson said
the patient became angry and
threatened the knife attack after
she broke up an earlier verbal
confrontation between him and
another patient.
Ms. Jefferson said she hid in
the locked office after a fellow
employee overheard Mr. Diaz
say he was going to kill her. Be-
fore hospital security arrived,
she said Mr. Diaz approached
the nursing station waving a
knife in the air.
She told Deputy Bill Starling
that Mr. Diaz obtained a stain-
less steel knife from a dining
area. The report does not address
the delay in the complaint.
SA second criminal complaint
resulted from a confrontation
between two women in Glen St.
Mary late on April 27.
Leigh Boyer-Radzin, 34, of
Glen said she was knocked to
the ground and beaten by Laura
Lockwood, 40, of Jacksonville
after the victim went to an ad-
dress on Andrews St. to retrieve
her infant.
She had earlier left that ad-
dress with the baby following a
confrontation with her boyfriend
and the child's father, Chris-
topher Anderson, 34, of Glen.
The boyfriend and his brother,
31-year-old Charles Pipkins,
followed her and took the baby
back:
The confrontation between
the two women resulted from an
attempt by Ms. Lockwood to get
Ms. Radzin to leave the proper-
ty. Deputy Curtis Ruise said he
noted facial bruises and swell-
ing consistent with the victim's
version of events.
Deputy Ruise contacted the
Department of Children and
Families, after Mr. Anderson
said Ms. Radzin left their five-
month old daughter unattended
in the gazebo at Friendship Park
in Glen, then rushed off with her
to a nearby residence where he
claimed drugs were being used.
The boyfriend and other
witnesses said the mother was
drunk when the confrontation
occurred, and th~Ashe attempted
to pick a fight with Mr. Ander-
son by pulling his hair.

Woman stung with taser


Police tasered a woman in the
parking lot of Lyman Green's
BBQ in Macclenny on April 24.
Deputy Curtis Ruise said he
was called to the US 90 restau-
rant in response to a car alarm
going off in the parking lot.
He found Judy McAndrew, 49,
sleeping in her 2003 Nissan
Maxima, and the officer noted
that Ms. McAndrew smelled
strongly of alcohol.
Police say Ms. McAndrew
told them she was at a bar ear-
lier that night and a man drove
her around Jacksonville. He
later brought her back to Mac-
clenny and left her in the car at
Lyman Green's. Ms. McAndrew
told police she let her dog oit to
urinate and then locked herself
in the car. The dog remained
outside.
Deputy Ruise said in his re-
port that Ms. McAndrew "start-
ed getting verbally aggressive at
us." After being unable to calm
her down, Deputy Ruise tried to
arrest her. He says she resisted.
It was then that Deputy John
Hardin, who was on the scene
as back-up, tasered Ms. McAn-
drew. She was taken to the Bak-
er County jail.
In other reports, a Glen St.
Mary man was forced to replace
five tires on two trucks when
someone placed roofing nails on
his driveway.
William Roy, 51, told police
on April 25 that someone had
put the nails on the driveway
of his Blue Jay Lane home be-
tween April 16 and April 20.

Deputies arrested Michael
Jackson, 25, on Klein Road and
Honeysuckle in Glen St. Mary
on April 28 when they allegedly
found him shouting obscenities
and being restrained by friends

The friends told police that
Mr. Jackson was involved in a
verbal argument with the two

him before the argument got vi-

According to Deputy Dyal, Mr.
Everett admitted to having other

Complaint names boyfriend

for making threats with a knife


A Glen St. Mary woman told
police on April 29 her live-in
boyfriend held a knife to her
throat and threatened to kill her.
Deputy Darrin Whitaker
found Connie Clark, 42, cry-
ing in her East Riverside Drive
home when he arrived on the
scene. Ms. Clark told police
she woke up that night to find
her boyfriend Bryan Staltz, 41,
standing over her. She alleged
that Mr. Staltz grabbed her by
her hair, held a black-handled
knife to her throat and loudly
threatened to kill her if she tried
to get a restraining order.
Ms. Clark told Deputy Whita-
ker that Mr. Staltz hit her on the
back of her head and placed his
hands around her neck, adding
that her boyfriend threatened
again to kill her, this time if she
called police. Mr. Staltz alleged-
ly threw both Ms. Clark's house
and cell phones into the yard.
Deputy Whitaker says Ms.
Clark had red marks on her neck
and a bruise on her hand. He also


states that a lock of Ms. Clark's
hair was found in her bed. Police
were unable to find Mr. Staltz.
In other incidents, Macclen-
ny resident Grace Church, 38,
told police on April 24 that three
women threatened her, violating
an existing restraining order.
Ms. Church accused Alicia
Moore, Chazatee Moore and
Avadon Carter of coming to
her Grisholm Street home and
threatening her with large sticks.
Deputy William Hilliard says
the three women were out of
the area when he arrived at the
scene and couldn't be located.
Charges were filed through the
state attorney's office.
And Heather Norman, 20, of
Macclenny, told police her ex-
boyfriend, Dominick Capelli III,
called her cell phone in violation
of a restraining order. Police say
that both individuals have filed
restraining orders against the
other. Charges were filed against
Mr. Capelli.

BY ANDREW BARE


The Glen St. Mary Town
Council stayed in session all
of three minutes the evening of
May 1 for a public hearing and
adoption of a bid to close three
platted roads inside a tract north
of US 90 slated for commercial
development.
The vote was delayed last
month due to an advertising error
that misnamed Highland Ave.,
one of the proposed closures re-
quested by land owners Ray and
Gerra Gatlin of Macclenny. The
other roads are North Orange
Ave. and East Washington St.
The undeveloped wooded tract
lies between US 90 and Madison
St.
No one showed up at either
public hearing to comment on
the closure, which attorney Hugh
Fish of Macclenny, representing
the Gatlins, requested earlier as


a key step preparing the land for
re-sale. He said the owners had
no immediate plans to do so.
The property lies inside the
east Glen town limits, with the
exception of a slice abutting
Wildcat Dr. leading to Baker
County High School.
The council, with the excep-
tion of Dickie Foster who was
absent, voted unanimously for
closure. Mr. Fish will.prepare the
deed reflecting the alteration. A
survey of the tract has been com-
pleted and will be submitted as
part of the record.

Alex Gotay and Sarah Herrington with instructor Marilyn Harrell, Mrs. Ander
Crenshaw and the president of UPS at the Congressional Art Show.

Art students wield easels


with ease in
It's been a good week for
Baker High School art students.
They had a very successful stu-
dent art show in the school's
media center; one of the students
received an award in the Con-
gressional art contest and BCHS
was the top ranked high school at
the Savannah College of Art and
Design's Sidewalk Art Festival.
BCHS art instructor Marilyn
Harrell couldn't be happier. "I
have a great bunch of talented,
loving students who enjoy cre-
ating art. It's wonderful having
students who love what I am pas-
sionate about. I have the best job
in the world."
Sarah Herrington took an hon-
orable mention in the Congres-
sional Art Contest. Herrington's
art was displayed at Congress-
man Ander Crenshaw's office
and she received high praise from
the congressman and his wife.
This past weekend, Harrell
took nine students to compete at
the Sidewalk Art Festival spon-
sored by SCAD. There were 78
entries from seven states and


competitionn
BCHS won more awards than
any other school.
Alex Gotay took a third place
in the student category and Ra-
chel Magnan and Jessica Cohen
took honorable mentions. Art-
ists draw original designs on the
sidewalks of Savannah, and they
often get very ornate and elabo-
rate.
Thousands of spectators are
traditionally on hand to watch
the artists chalk their designs on
the sidewalks. It has become a
big drawing card for the Savan-
nah area.
Other than the three winners
Justin McCabe, Herrington,
Jeremy Beasley, Jessica Alford
Sarah Nichols and Andrew
Thompson also competed.
Ms. Harrell is also very en-
couraged by the increase in the
number of students requesting
art as part of their schedule. She
has also been very pleased by the
number declaring art as a high
school major, and sees the pro-
gram continuing to improve.


Ms. Crews and Ms. Kreiger
Ms. Crews awarded
a Krieger Scholarship
Caytlin Crews, daughter of
Joey and Kathy Crews of Mac-
clenny, was awarded the 1st An-
nual Kreiger Scholarship Award
on March 31 at the All Star Clas-
sic Twirling Competition held at
Santa Fe Community College.
This scholarship is awarded
to the freshman with the highest
score at the University of Flor-
ida Gatorette tryouts. This is
Caytlin's first year twirling with
the Gatorettes.
Presenting the award was
Miss Florida, Allison Kreiger, a
former Gatorette for which the
scholarship is named.

BCMS has

successful

1st weekend

After a very successful first
week, the BCMS/YMCA drama
group will continue its run of
This Is Your Life, Charlie Brown
this weekend. Charlie Brown
played to very enthusiastic audi-
ences over the weekend.
The production, directed by
Sara Beth Gerard, is the first at
BCMS for over decade. Gerard,
who runs the Teen Center at the
YMCA, studied theatre at FSU
and is a senior English and phi-
losophy major at UNF.
Gerard wanted to do drama
with the YMCA, and since most
of her Teen Center students were
middle schoolers, it seemed an
obvious partnership. The part-
nership has worked very well,
with support for the program
coming from both the school
and the Y. With the success of
Charlie Brown, Gerard plans
to continue doing productions
through both the YMCA and the
middle school.
This Is Your Life, Charlie
Brown is a compilation of many
favorite Peanuts cartoons, in-
cluding Snoopy versus the Red
Baron, Charlie Brown's inability
to win a baseball game, and the
mysterious Red Headed Girl.
The production continues
with shows Friday and Saturday
at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:00
pm.

Donate $6,000 to Relay For Life
Janet Harvin of the Republican Women of Baker County presents a check for $6,000
to Relay For Life chairperson Geneva Rhoden. The money was raised during the
Republican women's Heart to Heart Banquet held last February. Relay for Life is
the American Cancer Society's main fundraising event and helps support cancer
survivors and raise cancer awareness. "We're really happy about this," said RW
member Doris Griffis. "This is $2,000 more than we raised at the 2005 banquet."

Candidate speaks at family night...
Janet Adkins of Fernandina Beach (left), a candidate for the Florida House seat
soon to be vacated by Aaron Bean, spoke at Macclenny Nursing and Rehab Center
during the May 1 family night dinner. Ms. Adkins, whose husband's family owns and
operates a long-term care facility in Hilliard, is an advocate for the health care needs
of the elderly. She is pictured with Johnie Strickland, a resident counselor who has
lived at the center four years, and administrator John Simmons. The administrator
has worked in long-term health care since the late 1960s and recently reinstated the
quarterly family night dinners to give friends and family a chance to socialize over a
meal with relatives. PHOTO BY KELLEY LANNIGAN

The host Baker High Wild-
cats' drive for another district
baseball championship came up
short last Thursday when they
fell 11-3 to the Santa Fe Raiders
in the championship game. Bak-
er County now prepares for a re-
match with Bishop Kenny High
School in the regional tourna-
ment quarterfinals scheduled for
Tuesday night; Kenny defeated
BCHS 9-8 earlier in the spring
season.
The Wildcats were stymied
Thursday by a combination of
sloppy defense, solid Raider
pitching and controversial calls
that all seemed to go against
Baker County.
The decisive turn of events,
oddly enough, came in the bot-
tom of the second inning. Down
2-0, the Wildcats led off with
consecutive ,doubles from se-
niors Kelly Davis and Kirk High
to cut the deficit in half. But
that's when things went awry
for Baker County.
The first base umpire ruled
that High missed first base on
his double and he was called out.
The Wildcats went from having
a runner on second with no outs
to a bases empty, one-out situ-
ation. The Baker County dug-
out was livid;. head coach John
Staples pleaded to the umpires
that High tripped on the .bag as
he rounded first, but to no avail.
"That was big for us, because
we either make it 2-2 or 3-2 in
that inning," Staples said. "Usu-
ally what you can do is go to
the other umpire and see 'did he
see anything?' In this case, they
were both saying [High] missed
it which, you know, I'm watch-
ing it and the 're saying...I.saw..
the kid trip over the bag. That's .
why he stumbled."
But for all the questions over
umpiring, it was Baker County's
inability to hold off the Raid-
ers' attack that doomed its title
dreams. Santa Fe scored four


times in the fourth inning off
senior starter Tyler Thomas and
his replacement, senior Dustin
Rowe, to blow a 3-1 game into
a 7-1 affair. The Wildcats com-
mitted two errors in the frame.
Senior Adam Lewis led off the
bottom of the inning with a walk,
and Davis drove him off with a
two-run home run to left-center
field. But that would be the final
time the Wildcats pushed across
a run in the game.
Their last real threat came
in the bottom of the fifth when,
with the Wildcats still down 7-31
sophomore Travis Tyson drew a
two-out walk. He advanced to
third when senior Curtis Lowery
reached on an error. But Davis,
whose bat has been so huge for
the Wildcats all year, struck out
to end the threat. The Raiders
pushed across four more runs
in the top of the sixth to finish
the scoring and ice the game.
Baker County finished the night
by,grounding into a controver-
sial double play in the seventh
inning.
"A few things happened early
that kind of took the wind out
of our sails," Staples said. "But
when you get beat 11-3, it's hard
to blame officiating."
Staples said he emphasized
to his players the importance of
moving on from the loss, how-
ever painful. The coach says his
team is looking forward to its
rematch with a talented Kenny
Crusader squad.
"We're all about winning
championships," he said. "We
would have liked to gone in as
district champions. We're not
going to deny that. That was a
heartbreaking loss, and a tough
one to overcome.
"But the Qreiat thing is. \\e get,,,
to go back and plia j teani tmhai
beat us 9-8 earlier in the year
that we thought we should have
won the game. So we get anoth-
er shot at them at their place.
We're excited again."

Jaguars make severalsolid


picks in recentNFL draft


FAT LADY

ROBERT GERARD

The NFL draft is now a mem-
ory and it provided a few sur-
prises. The Jacksonville Jaguars
fared pretty well, snatching one
of the best players on the table
and using some very shrewd
trades to fill holes in their ros-
ter.
The Jaguars made what most
draft insiders claim was one of
the two or three best picks of the
draft when they grabbed Florida
Gator safety Reggie Nelson as
the 17th overall pick.
The fact that Nelson was still
available was a shock to Jaguar
Vice-president James Harris,
and Harris immediately moved
to select him. It is expected that
he will bookend strong safety
Donovan Darius.
The pick of Nelson actually
overruled Coach Jack Del Rio,
who was surprised that quar-
terback Brady Quinn of Notre
Dame was still available and
would have liked to have picked
him. But in the' end, Harris felt
Nelson was the best player
available.
Nelson is a class act as well,
and his enthusiasm and love of
the game is infectious. He is ex-
pected to become an immediate


fan favorite and if he plays as
well in the pros as he did as a
Gator, should be a valuable ad-
dition to the team.
The Jaguars made some other
shrewd picks as well. They were
able to make some trades and
move up in the second round
that allowed them to grab some
good players. Interestingly
enough, the Jaguars focused on
the defense in the draft.
Their defense, already one of
the best in the NFL, is aging and
they would like to shore up some
positions. Their second overall
pick was fast, tough linebacker
Josh Durant of Hampton Col-
lege. Their third pick was Central
Florida receiver Mike Walker,
who has speed and great hands.
They also snagged receiver John
Broussard from San Jose State.
Broussard is a long, lanky speed
burner who will heed to put on
some weight and muscle to play
with the big boys.
The most interesting pick
for Jacksonville was Maryland
punter Adam Podlesh. The Jag-
uars already have one of the
league's top punters in Chris
Hanson and pundits are wonder-
ing whether this could signal a
trade. Podlesh is an athlete who
punts. He runs a 4.5 40 yards
and could play any number of
positions.
All in all, it looks as if the
draft was kind to Jacksonville.
