78th Year, Vol. 19 Thursday, September 6, 2007 Macclenny, Florida 50S
BY ANDREW BARE
City manager Gerald Dop-
son unveiled at the city of
Macclenny's first budget
workshop Tuesday a tentative
2008 budget that comes in at
$6.3 million, down more than
$500,000 from last year. The
city projects a total budget sur-
plus of about $205,000.
The department seeing the
largest increase is projected to
be information services, not
surprising as it didn't receive
any money in 2007. The depart-
ment will get $168,977,, which
will help fund new credit card
terminals at city hall, several
small computers which code
enforcement officer Joy Chap-
man can use to print out cita-
tions in the field and several
software programs. A second
server will also be purchased.
The sheriff's department
is asking for $717,407 from
Macclenny, up $52,409 from
last year's contribution. Much
of that comes in salaries and
wages, as well as in the cost of
And the fire department
is also asking for an increase
of more than $18,000 from
last year's $513,850 figure.
Roughly half of that increase
will come in life and health
insurance for the department's
employees. Another $8000 is
counted in a category listed
only as "insurance."
The road department, on
the other hand, will see a loss
of more than $355,000 in next
year's budget. Some $25,000
of those cuts will come from
which is not budgeted any cash
for 2008. But by far the largest
decrease will come in street re-
surfacing. That area was given
$550,000 last year, but will
have to make do with $10,000
The city projects, its utili-
ties, water and sewer, to drain
$257,000 less than they did the
previous year, when utilities
cost Macclenny $2,388,974.

in the territory of repairs and
maintenance, as well as in pay-

had bloodshot eyes while seated
in the rear of a rescue ambulance

can't prove he was legally drunk
at the time.

how all of this could be," said
Ms. Michaud, who was comatose

she spent at Shands'Jacksonville,
waking up in time tomake a Fa-
ther's Day call to an ailing dad
in Akron, Ohio [she was well

"This kid by all rights should
have been charged with DUI and
spent time in jail. It's not a mat-
ter of me being vengeful or not
wanting to let this drop. It's a
matter of what's right."
At the same meeting, Ms. Mi-
chaud was told that because Mr.
Baker was 20 at the time of the
accident, a blood alcohol level
lower than .08 that applies to ju-
venile drunk drivers cannot be
applied to him. The sole charge
against him so far is a ticket for
improper change of lane. It car-
ries a $118.50 fine. He was never
charged with underage drinking
though the blood alcohol test
clearly indicates he consumed it
Phil Pena, a Jacksonville attor-
ney representing Ms. Michaud in
a recently-filed civil suit, argues
the .06 three hours after the ac-
cident is damning in itself.
"The level at the crash site
[SR 125 at the curve near Bob
Burnsed Rd.] must have been
over .08," asserted Mr. Pena.
"There is no doubt in my mind
that he was intoxicated. He obvi-
ously was drunk when he left the
The party Mr. Pena refers to
was a 30th birthday celebration
'for Mitch Canaday at the north
county residence of Dale Har-
vey, described by attendees as a

affair. Mr. Pena obtained a dozen
affidavits from revelers,
"Everyone remembers he was
there, but curiously no one saw
him drinking," notes the attor-
ney, adding he is looking into a
lawsuit against the party hosts on
the basis they should have pre-
vented underage drinking.
The proof burden in civil law-
suits is less than that in criminal
cases, and though the plaintiff's
attorney said normally cases like
this involve damages "in the sev-
en figures" he doubts Mr. Baker
has any significant assets or in-
surance limits anywhere near
that. The defendant is employed
as a corrections officer at BCI.
"Part of the point of going
through with it is to get Julie
some answers. The civil claim is
really her only way to hold any-
one responsible at all," said Mr.
The case is on the civil docket
for trial next spring, and Judge
Mark Mosley recently referred it
for a mediated settlement nor-
mal in cases like this. Mr. Baker
is represented by Bruce Robin-
son of Lake City, a former law
partner of his grandmother Jan-
ice Bessinger. Mr. Robinson did
not return a telephoned request
for comment this week.
Ironically, the seriousness of
Ms. Michaud's injuries and the
time it took to extricate her from
the wreckage may be the reason
that blood was not taken from

Ms. Michaud was also return-
ing that morning from a party,
this one for her boyfriend's son
held at Jacksonville Beach. No
alcohol was served, and Trooper
Lee's report notes she was not
impaired by either drugs or al-
cohol, though her blood was not
analyzed by FDLE.
Debbie Jones, executive direc-
tor of the Jacksonville chapter of
MADD (Mothers Against Drunk
Driving), agrees that the delay in
drawing blood from Mr. Baker,
and the lack of a timely prosecu-
tion combined to heighten the
frustration of the victim, who is
now looking at a life of physical
ills brought on by the accident.
"This is one of several cases
still open around the state, but
I've never seen one drag out this

Zachary Hendrix, 19 was
taken to Ed Fraser Hospital and
Brandi Sellers, 18, was taken to
Shands Jacksonville after they
attempted to swim across the
river. Michele Harding, 19, who

Ms. Harding was issued a cita-

Deputy John Hardin arrested
Jacksonville resident Dedrick
Arnold, 26, on charges of co-

scene of an accident August 31.
Police initially received a call
about a hit-and-run crash involv-
ing a gray car. Deputy Hardin
found the car, and Mr. Arnold, at
the intersection of SR-121 and
Lowder St. According to the of-
ficer, Mr. Arnold admitted to be-
ing involved in a crash and run-
ning away because he lacked a
driver's license. His license had
been suspended 14 times.
Deputy Hardin said in his re-
port that he noticed a needle and
a small crack rock on the pas-
senger seat of Mr. Arnold's car.
The man was arrested and taken
to the Baker County jail.
And Deputy Hardin also ar-
rested Jacksonville resident
Kevin Millington, 43, after a
computer check revealed that
his license had been suspended
for failure to pay child support.
According to the officer, he
stopped Mr. Millington on South
Blvd. September 1 for failing to
stop at a stop sign. Mr. Milling-
ton initially claimed his car was
over-heating and desperately re-
quired water, but Deputy Hardin
said the car's temperature gauge

Neighbors react to
sex offenderin midst
Rights and fears clashed
Thursday as the Gilford Davis
Rd. Neighborhood Watch group
met with representatives of the
sheriff's department to discuss
the presence of sex offenders in
According to the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement's
website, Baker County is home
to 47 convicted sex offenders
and six "sexual predators." Two
of those offenders, one of them
a predator, live near the Gilford
Davis community in Margaretta.
Residents were concerned that
one of them, a recently released
76-year-old, was violating his
probation by not maintaining
signs on his lawn that revealed
he was a predator.
Gerald Gonzalez, who is the
Sheriff's Office's patrol chief,
explained that while Baker
County requires signs to be
posted on the property of con-
victed sex offenders, there is no
requirement that the offender
maintain the signs or even keep
them standing. According to Lt.
Gonzalez, each county in Florida
is empowered to devise its own
notification system. The state
simply decrees that counties
must have some sort of system.
It's the job of the sheriff's de-
partment to maintain the signs.
The 76-year-old, identified as
Samuel Roach, had been con-
victed of lewd and lascivious
molestation of a person under
the age of 12 in February, 2005.
He was released earlier this year,
reportedly because of ill health,
and lives in a travel trailer off

one of the attendees at last week's
meeting, objected to Mr. Roach
living near her home because
she has a 16-year-old daughter
who she says is not allowed now
to ride her 4-wheeler.
"If it hadn't been for a friend,
I wouldn't have been notified
about this at all," Ms. Simmons
said during, a telephone inter-
view last week. She has lived
in the neighborhood south of
US 90 four years and described
relationships as "strained" be-
cause of Mr. Roach is on prop-
erty belonging to a third party.
"My husband has been driv-
ing a truck for ten years, and
he's considering quitting be-
cause he's afraid something bad
will happen while he's on the
road," said Ms. Simmons.
"[Police] share the same frus-
trations with the system you
do," Lt. Gonzalez said. "We can
make the best arrest we can and
send them to the system."
Brad Dougherty, who heads
the office's sexual investigations
unit, said Thursday that the term
"sexual predator" does not mean
an offender committed a par-

it only says that the offender

The rules by which a sex of-
fender must live vary according
to the terms of their probation.
Usually, however, they all in-
clude some basic features. Aside
from the state-ordered notifica-
tion, they're also prohibited
from living within 1000 feet of
public areas where children are
usually present. This includes
schools, playgrounds and school
What it does not include,how-
ever, are homes. A sex offender
is allowed to live near homes
where children are present. Po-
lice are also limited in how they
can punish alleged probation
violations. Accusations from
neighbors usually aren't enough,
unless the neighbors have video
evidence of the violations. Gen-
erally, police have to observe
the violations themselves to ar-
rest the offender.
Residents concerned about
potential sex offenders in their

the BCDC agreed to purchase at
its appraised $3,000,000 value,

Much of that belief is fueled
by the way the BCDC went
about buying the land. The cor-

announcing at its May 23 meet-

And Deputy Taylor also re-
sponded to a fight at the Baker
County jail when Rasheed Sil-
vera, 29, an inmate, allegedly
punched inmate Willis Hudson
in the supply room.
According to Mr. Hudson,
he was eating breakfast when
the other inmate kicked him in
the mouth and started punching
him. A correctional officer told
Deputy Taylor he pulled Mr. Sil-
vera off Mr. Hudson.
The deputy said charges
would be filed against Mr. Sil-

questions about the incident.
The preliminary ruling from
the medical examiner's office in
Gainesville is that the death of
18-year-old Daniel Luke Nor-
man, 18, of Macclenny last week
was from a self-inflicted gunshot
wound to the head.
The body of Mr. Norman was
found by a brother in an out-
door shed near a family vacation
house on the St. Marys River
off Steel Bridge Rd. about 9:15
on August 29. Family members
had been searching for him that
evening after he didn't show up
for work. He was last seen by the
brother and his father the previ-
ous evening. The victim was up-
set over the recent breakup with
his 17-year-old girlfriend.

tire length of the restaurant. The
manager walked up and down
the aisles asking customers for
-their attention. Conversation qui-
eted and in a couple of minutes
the entire restaurant was silent.
The manager then addressed the
crowd of curious people.
"Ladies and gentleman, the

When the song ended, peo-

In the fall of 1938, war was
threatening Europe. Musician
Irving Berlin, Jewish immigrant
and great patriot of his beloved
United States, rewrote some old
lyrics into a peace song for the
country. Popular singer Kate
Smith introduced God Bless
America during a radio show
broadcast on Armistice Day. It
became one of the most recog-
nized songs in the country.
After the terrorist attacks of
9/11, it was sung by members
of Congress on the steps of the
United States Capitol.

House size minimum badidea
If I read the article correctly,
the town of Glen St. Mary is con-
sidering making 1400 sq. ft. the
minimum size for all new hous-
es. This seems somewhat foolish
to me. What of those people who
do not need or want houses that
large? My own home has two
bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry
room, kitchen, dining room, liv-
ing room and a large front porch
- all in less than 1400 sq ft.
Thankfully, I do not live in a
location where I am required to
have a home larger than what I
need or desire. Is there a particu-
lar reason that Glen is moving
to make single people, childless
couples and senior citizens have
homes large enough to accom-
modate families with children?
I can understand the restrictions
on mobile homes, even if just
for safety reasons, but restricting
the minimum size for a home to
1400 sq. ft. has no safety value
- it is elitism pure and simple.
Those people who would
rather not have large homes are
being told that they are no longer
welcome in Glen. St: Mary. Ac-

Fire-scarred flag- God' picture
preserved; did it stop scoo fire?
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Workers replacing the 35-
year-old roof air conditioning
chiller units at Westside Ele-
mentary July 27 never suspected
that sparks from their welding
torches would result in a fire.
Sparks filtered down through
the attic and ignited a section of
The blaze began to creep-
down into the walls. When the
workers discovered the build-
ing was burning, they grabbed
fire extinguishers to prevent the
blaze from spreading as a call
was made to 911.
County and city fire depart-
ments were in a training class off
Lowder Street, and two trucks
raced from there to the school
just east of Glen St. Mary. Heavy
black smoke was pouring from
the building when they arrived.
The fire was quickly con-
trolled and fire fighters took
down the remains of an inside
wall to snuff out any embers
Later, fire chiefs Richard
Dolan from the county and Bud-
dy Dugger from Macclenny con-
ducted a routine walk-through of
the sight to access the damage.
They made their way through a
teacher's scorched office, noting
a television set which had melted
in the severe heat. They moved
down an adjacent hallway, not-
ing damage to tiles, walls, car-
pet and lighting fixtures. At the
end of the hall the fire damage
"I wonder why the fire didn't
move into this area," remarked
Chief Dugger, gesturing toward
the open door at the end of the
hall beyond which the structure
After further study, the chiefs
concluded that the fire had not
been forcefully contained by fire
fighters at that spot; rather, it ap-
peared to have suddenly stopped
on its own.
"That's just odd," said Chief
Dugger. "Ordinarily, it should
have blown right through."
That's when Chief Dolan no-
ticed something that left both
men a bit awestruck.
Above the door was a framed
picture of an American flag.
Across the image of the flag was
the phrase In God We Trust. The
picture's glass was singed with
soot, but it was intact.
"Well, that might be your rea-
son right up there," remarked
The framed American flag
picture was carefully removed
and presented by the fire fight-
ers to school superintendent
Paula Barton who brought it to a
recent school board meeting.
'We were very lucky with
this fire incident," Ms. Barton
said. "It could have been much
worse. This picture will be per-
manently installed in the district
office to always remind us."
Chief Dugger concedes that
not everyone will see divine in-
tervention in the incident, but he
can't help but feel that God was
in some way present.
"I've lost track of the house
fires I've been to over the years
and I've seen some unusual
things, particularly regarding
Bibles," he says. "If there is a
Bible at the scene of the fire, it
survives, often when all other
books burn up. The cover might
be charred but the contents re-
main intact. You can pick it up
and read it."
Chief Dugger admits there
may be a scientific explanation.
Parts of newspapers sometimes
survive fires. The lack of oxygen
in the tightly folded pages may
prevent flames from being able
to ignite easily.
"Yet, it makes you stop and
think, when we keep finding
them over and over," the chief
said. "It just sometimes seems
like more than coincidence and
your mind can't help but imag-
ine that a higher power may be

of you that helped us so much
during the loss of our mother
and grandmother. We will not
even try to name, each and every
one of you, there were so many,
she had so many friends. To all
those who officiated and hosted
our family, thank you for your
words, prayers and songs, they
comforted us. To the individuals
who prepared the food and all
others that helped, thank you,
the meals we enjoyed during our
time of loss were greatly appre-
ciated. To the pallbearers, thank
you for the respect you showed
to her. To those who brought
food, flowers, cards, calls and
prayers and for just being there,
Please know that all of you are
in our hearts and that thank you
feels so inadequate, but there are
no words to express how much
you helped and showed a true
testimony of her life here on
earth. Knowing she had so many
people that loved her has helped
carry us through. We will miss
her deeply until we meet again.

Thanks to supportive members
We would like to thank our church for a wonderful Pastor's Ap-
preciation Week. In our opinion, nobody does it better! It is a great
blessing to be a part of such a loving and supportive church family.
Our family has been with you for 8 years. Through these past
years, we've rejoiced together many times over the glorious bless-
ings of God and we've wept together over loss and sorrow. We have
stood like a family in testing times and become stronger.
We have learned by faith and experience that "they that wait upon
the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and
Even now God is pouring His spirit out upon us. We've been
amazed in recent months as we've watched God prove Himself time
and again saving souls, sanctifying hearts, healing sick bodies, bap-
tizing new believers in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking
in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.
We've seen new families come in almost every service hungry for
old time Pentecost and they've not been disappointed. Many of them
have been added to the church just this year.and are now a part of
our wondrous family. God is blessing us and the church is strong. We
are very thankful to serve as your pastor for such a time as this. We
believe our best days are just ahead of us.
To all the elders, we want to say thank you. Thank you for stand-
ing firm in what you believe we love it. Thank you for showing us
the way! Thank you for standing by your church through the years in
good times and bad. Thank you for standing by your pastor and his
To all of our youth, young adults and families, thank you for your
friendship and fellowship over the past years! May god richly bless
each of you and may you always know that we love and appreciate

By the numbers...
Holton flattens Union County,
scores 3 TDs in 40-6 Tiger rout
That's pretty much the only word to de-
scribe the Baker High Wildcats' 40-6 victory
over the Union County Tigers on the road in
Lake Butler Friday night. The Wildcats domi-
nated the entire game in front of a capacity
crowd on the visitor side at Tiger Stadium.
Quarterback Carlos Holton ran up, around,
over and through the opposition as 'Coach
Bobby Johns turned his senior signal caller
loose. Holton scored three touchdowns and
combined on three of five two-point conver-
sions to lead BCHS to the win.
Leading rusher Luscious "Pooh" Lee saw
limited action as the coaching staff tried
to nurse an injured hamstring. Much of the
game he was used as a backfield decoy for
Holton to set off on a long run.
As effective as the offense was in the game,
the defense was even more so. They limited
a potentially potent Tiger offense to just six
points and forced error after error.
Coach Andrew Zow's Tigers will likely
improve as the season progresses, but their
overall youth and inexperience hindered them
against the much more physical Wildcats.
The Cats controlled both sides of the line of
scrimmage, with the offensive line blowing
open big holes for the running backs and the
defense pushing back the runners and swarm-
ing to the ball.
The Cats got the ball first but could do
nothing with it. After the punt, the Tigers had
decent field position and mounted a drive into
Cat territory.,The drive stalled on the 23-yard
line as Tommy and Harold Moore stopped
the Tiger runner for a loss and Haik.Farmer
snuffed a fourth down attempt to give the ball
It didn't take long for the Cats to strike.
Holton kept the ball, shot through a hole and
raced 83 yards for the score. To cap it off, he
hadn't even caught his breath before he ran
in the two-point conversion to give BCHS an
Union County looked as if it might drive
on the Cats again as quarterback Chris Al-
exander hit his most dangerous receiver, the
diminutive Jordan Clyatt, to cross midfield.
But Ethan Munson,-last week's Press Man of
the Match, forced a fumble to stop the drive.
Darvin Ruise scooped up the ball and ran 51
yards for the score, but it was negated by a
Undeterred, the Wildcats drove down the
field. Two Lee runs planted the ball at the
Union 14 yard line. Holton faked a hand-
off, kept the ball and ran it in for a score. He
found Tommy Moore in the end zone for the
The visiting Cats were up 14-0 but were
far from through. On their next possession,
Lee demonstrated to the coaching staff that
he is not far off 100%. He carried would-
be tacklers a good 8 yards to the 30. Holton
found Chris Robinson at the 44. Hank Farmer
and Harold Moore took over, running the ball
to the 19-yard line. Lee took it to the 4 and
Holton did the rest. He connected with Lee
Battles for the conversion to put BCHS up
24-0 as the half ran to a close.
Union County's only score came after
a fumble recover deep in Wildcat territory.
Zeke Schaff recovered the ball and Alexander
struck with a 16-yard touchdown pass. The
conversion was no good.
One of the old sports cliches is that teams
show their character by how they react after
being scored upon. It may be a cliche, but it
is also a fact. The Cats demonstrated their de-
termination to win by taking the next kickoff
and driving 55 yards for a score.
Harold Moore got things, started with
a good run back to the 45. From there, the
Cats used four running backs Lee, Moore,
Battles and Farmer to drive to the 26 yard
line. From there, Holton picked out Battles on
a short pass and Greg Williams was the power
back who plunged across for the score. Farm-
er converted the two pointer to give BCHS a
The final score came on a 50-yard drive
that saw Ruise, Farmer, Moore and Battles
touch the ball. Battles capped off the drive
with a 1-yard plunge. The Wildcats were
feeling pretty good about themselves and the
BCHS sideline got pumped up even more
when offensive lineman Lee Taylor was in-
serted at fullback and powered across for the
Though the lack of a kicker might come
back to haunt the Wildcats at some point in
the season, on Friday night they didn't need
one, as they were perfect on their two-point
The Cats will continue to be road warriors
this Friday as they travel to Starke to take on
traditional rivals Bradford County. Though
Bradford has struggled offensively (see re-
lated article), this is a game when the records
can be thrown out of the bus window.
The Cats will need to take the momentum
they gained in the victory over Union County
with them to Starke if they want to prevail
against their longtime rivals.
The Lady Wildcats opened
their regular season on Tues-
day August 28 with a home win
over First Coast High School.
The Cats swept the Bucca-
neers in three straight games by
scores of 27-25, 25-19 and 25-
18. It wasn't an easy start for
Baker High, trailing in all three
games before coming back to
win. However it was definitely
a learning experience for coach
Chris Armoreda's girls.
"In our first match, the team
was nervous and tentative,"
said Armoreda. "We missed
eight straight serves and found
:ourselves in a 15-7 hole. We fi-
nally settled down and started to
mount a comeback. I am really
impressed on how the team ral-
Slied from being down the whole

The Cats used momentum
:from the first match to sweep
through the next two, but it was
never easy. BCHS struggled
at the service line and then got
their rhythm. Once they had a
few service points under their
belt the matches became very
"After the game, the team felt
that even though this was a win,
:they were not satisfied with their
;play," said Armoreda. "They felt
;that they could have played bet-

They felt that they tried to do

"This was an exciting match
and we gave our home fans a
display of what we can do on the
volleyball court. Everything was
working for us on this night. We
got key hits, blocks and serves
at key moments of the game. We
were able to control the front-
line. Our blockers did a great job
as they forced Bradford's hitters
to hit over the blocks, which en-
abled our back row to get a good
pass off to the setter."

There's no doubt about the

play at quarterback
on Friday night.

in question. Holton,

The Cats will face
a tough test this Friday on the
road in Starke as they take on
the Bradford County Tornadoes.
But if the Union County game is
any indication, the quarterback
should be up for it.
Tornadoes lack offense,
make up with defense
If the last two weeks are any'indication, the Bradford County Tor-
nadoes will be leaning heavily on their defense to defeat the Wildcats
this Friday in Starke. The Tornadoes defense helped eke out a 7-3 win
over Fort White. The week before, they shut out Matanzas 7-0 in their
The Tornado defense forced four turnovers in the Matanzas game
and it proved the deciding factor. If they are to defeat the Cats, who
scored 40 points against Union County in their regular season opener,
they will need a similar effort.
The Tornadoes have not generated a lot of offense in their first two
games. Chucky Covington led the way with 98 yards against the Ft.
White Indians, and a Covington interception against the Matanzas Pi-
rates set up the only score in that game.
That doesn't mean the Tornado offense has no teeth. Their bite just
hasn't been too deadly in the first two outings. Quarterback Rodney
Mosely can run or throw, and Covington is quick and elusive. Rob
Harris and Deon Sewell will also see the ball.
If the Tornadoes come away with a win against Baker County,
Coach Steve Hoard's team will have to eliminate mistakes. The Indi-
ans recovered three fumbles in Friday's game, but were unable to turn
any into scores.
Matanzas also had plenty of chances, but couldn't convert. They
were driving deep in Tornado territory on two occasions during the
Classic, but were turned away with an interception and fumble.
Of course, this is one of those games where records go out the win-
dow. The Starke game is the longest running and most intense rivalry
the Wildcats have, and though it has lost some of its luster in recent
years, it is a game both teams would dearly love to win.
This Friday at 7:30 pm in Starke will tell the tale.
BCHS opponents kick off

with his feet and another on a
pass play. The only other score
was a safety on a blocked punt.
