rating on


jailbonds

BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
The prestige rating for the
$45 million bond issue intend-
ed to fund the construction of
Baker County's future jail will
go down to the wire.
The person chosen by the
Baker Correctional Develop-
ment Corporation to manage
the issue, Jim Swan of New
Jersey-based Bergen Capital,
said in a telephone interview
Monday that he wasn't sure if
the bonds would be "rated" -
labelled investment-worthy by
Moody's, the underwriter who
will make that decision.
Mr. Swan is running against
an unforgiving calendar. The
Bonds must be sold by Febru-
ary 15, and he said he hoped to
have the final word oh the bond
rating by later this week. Once
Mr. Swan knows for sure, he
can begin selling them to in-
vestors, an action he expects
to begin sometime within the
next two weeks.
If the bonds are rated "in-
vestment grade," it will en-
able the BCDC to sell them at
a much lower interest rate. If
Moody's, a premier investment
rating service, decides that the
bonds will be unrated, the cor-
poration, founded in December
of 2006 to build the new jail,
will have to offer higher inter-
est rates to entice investors.
Generally speaking, the
higher the risk the higher the
interest that investors want on
the bond yield.
Mr. Swan said the bond is-
sue was "on the bubble" and
wouldn't make a prediction.
He did, however, say that be-
cause the issue was not backed
by Baker County tax money, it
didn't lend itself to an invest-
ment grade rating and could
end up classified as "junk."
"It could be junk, but that
doesn't mean it's not a worth-
while investment," Mr. Swan
said.
While junk generally means
"worthless" in everyday lan-
guage, a bond issue labelled as
such is far from doomed. Mr.
Swan said Monday he thought
the bond issue would end up
rated investment grade or, at
the very least, on the highest
rung on the junk bond ladder.
After months of negotiations
between the BCDC, land own-
ers and local government, the
fate of Baker County's future'
jail will likely be decided on
the bond market. If Mr. Swan
is unable to sell the $45 million
issue, every deal made by the
corporation, from the purchase
of 90 acres of land at the cor-
ner of SR-121 and SR-228 to
re-zoning changes approved
by the county, will go by the

1:00 pm and 11:00 pm.
But while Mayor Gary Dopson said
the choice one of the "hardest decisions
to ever come before me," his colleagues
on the commission did not appear to have
similar reservations. An overflow crowd
that spilled out of the commission cham-
bers and into Manager Dopson's adjoining
office gave Commissioner Vernon Bennett
a standing ovation when the long-tenured
member of the board said he would vote
against the proposal.
"I feel like I've been,to a sermon," Mr.
Bennett said. "Thank God for that. We
live in God's acre right here, ya'll."
He was referring to
the decidedly religious
nature of the arguments
o I presented that evening
by those opposed to the
change. Six local pas-
tors spoke against the
proposal, all in explicitly
religious terms. While
Manager Dopson said the

said.
Another pastor, Shannon Conner, said
that God would bless Baker County with
profitable businesses if the commission
voted to uphold the ban. Several speakers
Monday night described Baker County as
"blessed." It was a view echoed by Mr.
Bennett, who implied that the county had
been spared by God from the recent Buga-
boo wildfire and other natural disasters.
Manager Dopson, for his part, por-
trayed the amendment as crucial for the
importation of restaurants.
"We're inundated with calls asking
when we're going to get a variety of food
establishments in our community," Mr.
Dopson said.
Mayor Dopson stressed he was a born-
again Christian who found himself torn by
the decision. But when he asked if anyone
in the crowd supported the proposal, no
one stepped forward. Commissioner Phil-
lip Rhoden was blunt in his assessment.

Mr. Parmeley was stopped
on Interstate 10 by Deuty Dar-

of July 7, 2007 and found to be
in possession of three controlled
drugs for which he did not have
a prescription. He also was
driving on a suspended license,
and was ticketed for reckless
driving after he sped away from
the officer at the Citgo station at
CR 125 near Glen.
All offenses constituted pro-

Images of nursery and con-
struction workers in Baker
County graced the front page
of the Florida Times-Union
on Wednesday and Thursday
last week when temperatures
dropped into the mid-20 de-
gree range. The 20 mph wind-
chill factor made it seem much
colder still.
Many people made efforts
to protect vulnerable plants and
trees by erecting cloth barriers,
bringing potted plants inside
out of the elements and in some
instances, setting up sprinklers
to provide a protective coating
of ice.
Using ice to negate the
freezing effects of wind may
seem something of a contra-
diction but the method, if done
properly, can be effective.
Lin Taber, who with wife
Magi runs the Glen St. Mary
Nurseries Company, used the
same method to protect the cit-

ding the sale of alcohol
on Sundays. City man-
ager Gerald Dopson
had presented a pro-
posal that would have
allowed restaurants to
sell alcohol on Sundays
between the hours of


rus trees near his home. '
According to Mr. Taber,
prolonged exposure to ex-
tremely cold wind can cause
plants to become dehydrated.
A sprinkler running during the
night will effectively create an
insulating coating of ice on the
tree. Keeping the water run-
ning is the key. Running water
is above freezing and transfers
heat to the tree. Water pumped
through the ground has the
same effect.
"It's the northwest wind
that causes the most dehydra-
tion damage," said Mr. Taber.
Workers at the nursery spent
most of Wednesday prepar-
ing for that night's predicted
freeze.
Ice isn't practical for all
plants, however. The nursery's
most vulnerable plants, young
potted palms whose buds are
easily damaged by severe cold,
were laid flat on the ground
facing the southeast. Since the
ground usually remains above

Holton stiljailed; All-Star slot in doubt


Wildcat football star Carlos Holton re-
mains in jail on a $25,000 bond for his al-
leged involvement in a home invasion at the
end of December. Though his legal woes are
Holton's chief concerns, hisAincarceration
presents head football coach Bobby Johns
with some real headaches/
Holton is scheduled to lead Johns' East
squad on the gridiron Jan. 19 against a very
formidable West squad in the East/West
game at Lake City's Columbia High. Johns


designed most of the offense around the
BCHS model which Holton ran with obvi-
ous ease. With Holton in jail, Johns is with-
out a versatile quarterback.
On the field, Holton is a standout. He
was named to the Times-Union Super 24
team and was the third leading rusher in the
area from his quarterback position. Holton
also started for the basketball team after the
football season but left to reportedly con-
centrate on academics. Holton has yet to get


his NCAA qualifying scores to allow him to
play college ball.
The situation puts Coach Johns in a dif-
ficult position and one he has never faced.
Holton is innocent until proven guilty but
Johns is very aware of the appearance.play-
ing him might send.
"I'm in uncharted waters here," said the
coach. "He's not one of my players any

ture traris 'to thie plants sindi
helps pr~ n ree'ng. 'i
A special frost-protection
cloth is used for coverage. Mois-
ture and light can penetrate, but
the cloth protects plants from
wind.
This year, Mr. Taber was gen-
erally pleased with the result of
the protective measures. He re-
members 1983 and 1985 when
the temperature plunged to sin-
gle digit readings.
"A reading of six degrees is
something you don't forget," he
said. "The bottom line is we
didn't have much damage this
time and we were grateful for
that."
The Glen Nursery office daily
receives weather transmissions
from the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Association.
"I even get the channel in my
car, to keep abreast of sudden
developments," said Mr. Taber.
According to Baker Coun-
ty horticulture agent Barbara
Smith, the NOAA website also
lists the last predicted freeze
dates of the season for the dif-
ferent regions of the country.
"That's very significant for
many folks who want to know
when they can safely plant the
more tender vegetables such as
tomatoes, squash, green peppers
and peas," said Ms. Smith.
The projected last freeze date
for the region from south Geor-
gia down to the north Florida
border is March 20th.
Since the temperature could
take another dive between now
and then, Ms. Smith has a couple
more tips to weatherize plants
against frost damage:
V Monitor weather reports
and if possible, water plants 2-3
days before a freeze occurs. The
sun warms the water and can
rapidly heat up the soil and off-


set damage.
SsCovering plants at a
g d idea. Just abo tn h
A*I1l do anfdold bed' nd
s'"sheets, which people often use,
are fine. Cover plants early in
the day and make sure the cover
reaches to the ground around
the entire plant. This traps heat
and creates a small mini-green-
house.
V Plastic is not the best mate-
rial to use, but is better than no
cover at all. Make sure plastic is
propped up on a frame and does
not touch leaves as this actually
transfers cold directly to the foli-
age.
For Lauri Butcher, purpose-
fully forming ice on her trees
was definitely not from a desire
to protect them from last week's
bitterly cold temperatures.
"I have a brown thumb,"
laughs Ms. Butcher. "I wasn't
trying to protect anything."
Growing up in Macclenny,
Ms. Butcher recalls how on the
rare occasions the temperature
was predicted to plunge to the
freezing mark, her father would
run multiple sprinklers on their
one-acre property off Louder St.
during the night. In the morning
the kids woke up to a mini-win-
ter wonderland.
"This is Florida, we don't
have the kind of winter here they
do in other parts of the country.
Dad just wanted us to experience
it as close as possible," she said.
Ms. Butcher enjoyed giving
her sons the same experience.
The sprinkler ran during the
night in their front yard and in
the morning, the porch was sur-
rounded by a virtual cave of ice.
"I loved it when dad froze our
yard and thought my boys' would
get a kick out of it, too," said Ms.
Butcher. "I just leave it to God to
bring the trees and shrubs back
in the spring."

den said.
In other business handled
Tuesday, the commission de-
cided over the strong dissent of
Mayor Dopson to allow the city
manager and the downtown re-
vitalization committee to nego-
tiate with CSX Transportation
on the closing of the crossing at
College St.
Manager Dopson and Jim
McGauley, who publishes The
Press and heads the downtown
committee, are attempting to
convince the railroad to expand
the city's right-of-way on both
sides of Railroad Ave. to 28 feet
from the current 20 feet pro-
posed by CSX in a lease. The
extra eight feet would allow for
angled parking for downtown
'business patrons, which Mr.
McGauley and Manager Dop-
son believe is crucial to the re-
vitalization effort.
In return, CSX wants the Col-
lege St. crossing closed to reduce


its liability. Four of the five com-
missioners had no problem giv-
ing Mr. McGauley and manager
Dopson the authority to present
the proposal to the railroad.
Mayor Dopson, however, said
he was upset by the railroad's
unwillingness to budge from its
"three-for-one" rule that the rail-
road won't open another cross-
ing unless three nearby cross-
ings are closed. The mayor has
also consistently stated he feels
CSX has been arrogant and im-
perious in its dealings with Mac-
clenny.
"I just simply have problems
with the railroad telling us what
to do," he said.
The commission also passed
on final reading an ordinance
declaring that the city considers
the use of reclaimed water to be
a matter of public policy. The
ordinance, championed by En-
gineer Frank Darabi, is part of
an effort by the city to show the
state that it's serious about con-

Since it is an All-Star game
it's not really about winning and
losing but about giving the play-
ers a chance to be seen by col-
lege scouts.
"On the other hand I'd like to
give the kid an opportunity to be
seen if that's in the best interests
of him."
Luckily, the decision isn't


only Coach Johns' to make.
"We'll meet as a group with the
organizers of the game and dis-

If the bond issue is success-
ful, however, and Mr. Swan is
able to raise $45 million by Feb-
ruary 15, construction of the jail
will begin immediately. Mid-
way, Fl.-based firm Ajax Con-
struction is on a strict schedule
and would likely start the proj-
ect February 16.
The entire BCDC arrange-
ment, including'the bond issue,
is based off a similar, success-
ful situation in Glades County.
There, the bond issue was un-
rated, but Glades had no prob-
lem raising money. Mr. Swan
pointed to Glades as cause for
optimism.
The BCDC plans to pay off
the bonds with money raised
from housing federal prisoners,
mainly illegal immigrants ar-
rested by the Immigrations and
Customs Enforcement Agency.
But while ICE officials have re-
peatedly assured Baker County
that it can expect a steady stream
of prisoners (and revenue), they
have been unwilling to issue any
written guarantees.

Health department


program focusing


on asthma disorder


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Promoting an awareness
about the disorder of asthma and
providing the public with fac-
tual, helpful information are the
goals of a new program from the
Baker County Health Depart-
ment education division.
The program is now actively
being used to help inform stu-
dents in the Baker County school
system and other entities in the
community.
"The most important over-
all message that the program
communicates is that asthma is
generally manageable with the
proper use of medication. In do-
ing so, most people who suffer
from it can live fairly normal,
healthy, active lives," says Rob-
ert Woods, BCHD health educa-
tion supervisor.
Asthma is a chronic disease
in which the bronchial airways
in the lungs become
narrowed and swol-

from anyone else and they fear
being thought of as defective
in some way. An example is a
student with exercise-induced
asthma who plays on a school
soccer team. That student is em-
barrassed to use an inhaler in
public, even if he or she is hav-
ing an asthma attack.
It is the hope of the BCHD that
presenting the asthma awareness
programs in the schools and oth-
er venues in the community will
help parents and students de-
velop a better understanding of
asthma and become more dedi-
cated to following the prescribed
use of medications.
Proper use of medication is
the key to managing asthma and
allows a person to lead as nor-
mal a lifestyle as possible.
Typical medications must be
taken daily for the opti-
mum manage-
ment
and
fast
act-
Sing


Symptoms include wheezing,
spasmodic coughing, painful
tightness in the chest, shortness
of breath, and rapid breathing.
There are varying underlying.
causes for asthma, but it most
often occurs in conjunction with
allergies and can lead to extreme
sensitivity to environmental trig-
gets such as perfume, cigarette
sihoke, fumesffrtom hoiisehold
cleaning products, animal dan-
Sder, dust and mold, exercise and
even cold temperatures.
Early diagnosis is key to ef-
fective treatment and asthma in
children is usually easy to pin-
point. Asthma in adults is often
more difficult to diagnose prop-
erly as symptoms can mimic
other respiratory disorders.
Over 4 million children in
the United States have asthma,
many of them infants. Because
of this, the BCHD is actively ap-
proaching day care centers as
places where it can conduct the
awareness program.
An important aspect of the
program is to dispel some com-
mon misconceptions about asth-
ma.
"Asthma is not contagious,"
says health educator Thuhoa
Tran, who has been taking the
asthma awareness program into
Baker County schools for the
past four months.
During an education ses-
sion, Ms. Tran first determines
what students may already know,
about asthma, then presents a
fuller explanation.
Ms. Tran uses visual aids to
help students identify common
asthma "triggers" such as dogs,
cats and cigarette smoke. She
also uses a medical diagram that
clearly demonstrates the swell-
ing and mucus production that
occurs in the bronchial airways
during an asthma attack.
Most students already know
that asthma causes difficulty in
breathing as some have family
members with the disorder," said
Ms. Tran. "However they don't
really comprehend what is hap-
pening or why. The visual aids
help them to understand."
The need to properly take and
use prescribed medications is
stressed. Ms. Tran also tries to
enlighten students to the impor-
tance of being kind and patient
with students who have asthma.
"There is a real problem
with kids being mean to kids
who have asthma," she said.
"They make fun of them, which
makes those students hesitant to
use their medications properly.
They become embarrassed and
ashamed, hiding in the school
bathroom or not using their
medication at all."
According to Mr. Wood, stu-
dents don't want to be different


cations such as Albuteral inhal-
ants need to be used promptly
for sudden onset of symptoms
for the best results.
According to Mr. Woods, par-
ents often don't fully understand
the importance of this, even
though they have been advised
by their family physicians.
When'children start to im-
provie p'anfifs'thiiy not ma~6'1
them take the medication on a
regular basis. A common reason
parents give: My child seems to
be doing well, why do I need to
give it to them when they aren't
having symptoms?
Another reason can be eco-
nomical. Families without
health insurance must pay the
often hefty price for the medica-
tion. Sometimes, they simply let
it go, hoping the child will grow
out of it.
"Although people can usually
live normal lives by using the
medication, the fact that asthma
is a dangerous disease remains.
"You can die from it," said
Mr. Woods. "That is why it is
so important to manage it prop-
erly."
Both Mr. Woods and Ms. Tran
are pleased with the response to
the asthma awareness programs
so far. A recent program offered
specifically for adults was at-
tended by 24 people. The par-
ticipants were pleased to have a
forum to share their personal ex-
periences regarding living with
asthma. The health department
plans to soon take the program
into local churches.
Since smoking and exposure
to second-hand smoke is a lead-
ing cause of respiratory irrita-
tion which can lead to asthma,
the BCHD is also working to
promote a smoke-free environ-
ment in the workplace and of-
fers a tobacco cessation program
to employees in businesses in
Baker and Clay counties.
Employees who want to quit
smoking can participate in edu-
cation, guided imagery, relax-
ation and stress management.
The program is free.
For more information on asth-
ma awareness and/or a smoke-
free workplace, call the Baker
County Health Department at

Attacks mother-in-law holding a baby


A Glen St. Mary woman was
arrested for aggravated battery on
January 2 after she allegedly beat
and kicked her ex-mother-in-law
while the victim was clutching
the assailant's 1-year-old child.
Patricia Cooper, 54, bore
physical signs of the attack, in-
cluding facial bruises and miss-
ing tufts of hair, according to the
county deputy who arrested 21-
year-old Alva Cooper early that
afternoon.
The elder Ms. Cooper told
Deputy Patrick McGauley the
daughter-in-law went to her resi-
dence off Hassie Johns Circle
about 11:30 for an arranged visit
with the baby. Patricia Cooper
and her son, the child's father,
had earlier been given temporary
custody of the child because of
the wife's suspected drug abuse.
The complainant said Alva
Cooper took the child to her car
on the premise of getting a pres-
ent, then attempted to place the
baby in a rear seat. Patricia Coo-
per then took the car keys and
the child, who she continued to
hold as the daughter-in-law pum-
melled her to the ground.
The victim then said she ran
to the house without the child,
locked the door and called po-
lice. The accused then walked to
the neighboring residence of Jes-
sica Christmas, where she admit-
ted to the attack.
Interviewed before her arrest,
Alva Cooper said the mother-in-
law struck her first, and she was
defending herself. She was also
charged with child neglect be-
cause the baby was in the grand-
mother's arms during the attack.
The child was not injured.
Police investigated a number
of other domestic violence cases
the past week, including one on
New Year's Eve afternoon dur-
ing which a north county man re-
peatedly struck his girlfriend on
the back with a fishing pole.
Leslie Starling, 25, said long-
time boyfriend Anthony Moore,
37, became angry because she
could not find a vehicle title.
Deputy Sgt.Thomas Dyal said.,
gdsStarlta nd's k backbore eight
red-welts and two black marks.


The victim went to the fire
station at Cuyler to summon po-
lice, and later Mr. Moore denied
the accusation when Sgt. Dyal
interviewed him at the couple's
residence off CR 127.
Two of their children and a
third belonging to Ms. Starling
were at home during the inci-
dent.

Deputy Erik Deloach the un-
locked vehicle was in the drive-
way when she left for work about
9:00 the previous evening. She
noticed it was gone when she re-
turned about 7:30 that morning.
Two other vehicles, both re-

recently.
The first, a burned and dam-
aged 2006 Chevrolet pickup,
was found parked near L'il Dixie

in the north county on January
14. It had been removed to a lot
by AA&R Towing, and an em-
ployee submitted the vehicle ID
number to police.
Deputy Deloach said he was
on routine patrol December 31
when he located a Buick parked
on Friendship Place north of
Sanderson. A subsequent com-

Storm water plan nearly finished


BY ANDREW BARE
Press staff
An engineering consultant
hired by Baker County said
Monday that he was "99 per-
cent" finished with the first
phase of the county's new storm
water master plan.
Bill Moriarty of King Engi-
neers gave the county commis-
sion a presentation Monday that
was similar to one he gave to the
St. John's Water Management
District January 3. Commission-
er Alex Robinson and county
manager Joe Cone attended that
session.
Mr. Moriarty said Monday
night that phase one was mainly
information gathering. The con-
sultant pored over old records,
newspaper stories and various
statistics to determine what ar-
eas of Baker County were most
susceptible to flooding.
A map provided by Mr. Mo-
riarty indicated that an area
north of Macclenny, relatively
near the border with Georgia,


was prone to flooding. He also
sketched out territory near the
southern border of the county as
being susceptible.
When phase one is complete,
the board hopes to get about
$175,000 from the St. John's
district to go ahead with phase
two; namely, engineering analy-
sis of the flood-prone areas and
even more sophisticated data
analysis.
Long term, the commission is
looking at a three-phase master
plan. The final phase includes
the actual act of implementing
plans to improve the condi-
tions of the flood-prone areas
in Baker County. There was no
indication Monday of when the
master plan would be complete,
or when the commission would
find out whether it received the
funding.
In other business before the
board in its first meeting of
the new year, the commission
unanimously agreed to a request
from the Florida Department of
Transportation to join the North-


east Regional Planning Model
with Duval, St. Johns Nassau
and Clay counties.
The model is a method FDOT
uses to plan out future road im-
provement projects, and the de-
partment was anxious for Baker
County to join. The county will
have to pay a $25,000 matching
fee, but Mr. Cone said Monday
FDOT was allowing it to hold
off on the payment until Octo-
ber 1, when the new budget year
begins.
Mr. Cone told the commis-
sion that he had filed the paper-
work necessary to claim half the
life insurance policy of Eugene
Harter, a Macclenny resident
who died March 16 and left 50
percent of his policy to the Em-
ily Taber Library.
The total value of the policy is
$17,613.93, which means the li-
brary will receive approximately
$8,800 from RiverSource Life
Insurance Co. of New York.
Monday's meeting lasted just
over a half hour and was sparse-
ly attended by the public.

Driver ofweaving van gets aDUI


A Baldwin man was jailed
the evening of January 3 after
a county deputy responding to
a report of careless driving saw
a van driving southbound in the
center of two-lane North 6th St.
in Macclenny.
Elvin Williamson, 68, told
Deputy Mike Lagle he'd had but
two beers, but the officer noted
the driver had trouble keeping
his balance after he exited the
1994 Ford van. Mr. Williamson
also failed several field sobriety
tests before taking a breathalyzer
at county jail. He registered .213,
far above the .08 Florida limit.
A witness told Deputy Lagle
she followed the weaving van
earlier and feared the driver
would kill himself or someone
else.
A number of other arrests for
alcohol-related offenses were
made in the opening days of
2008, all resulting in charges of


disorderly intoxication.
Late on January 5, Deputy
Harold Taylor took David Ev-
ans, 25, of Macclenny into cus-
tody after he refused to leave the
home of his mother Kathy off
Doyle Williams Rd. near Sand-
erson.
Ms. Evans called police be-
cause her son was agitated and
threatened to harm her unless she
went to bed. The officer found
Mr. Evans seated in the living
room drinking beer. He refused
to leave and at one point stood
up in a threatening pose.
The morning of January 2
about 2:30, Kenneth Akins, 50,
of Macclenny was booked on
a similar charge for refusing to
leave the residence of Cynthia
Surrency on Joan St. in Mac-
clenny.
Ryan Giordano, 22, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for being
&iink. a~db 65s insid~


Macclenny Wal-Mart about
12:30 am on New Year's morn-
ing. A store manager told Deputy
John Hardin that Mr. Giordano
was knocking merchandise off
shelves and alarming customers.
He cursed loudly at the officer
when questioned, and Deputy
Hardin said he had to apply a
pressure-point technique to sub-
due the suspect after he repeat-
edly slammed his head into the
plexiglass divider.

Couple is

named in

complaint

for fighting
Criminal complaints for bat-
tery and criminal mischief were
filed against a Glen St. Mary
couple following an alleged fight
at a west Macclenny car wash
early on New Year's Day.
Matthew Green, 20, and Aar-
on Salts, 22, both of Macclenny,
said they were waiting for a
friend at the Splish-Splash on
US 90 when a vehicle containing
Robert Foster, 31, and Stephanie.
Foster, 26, blocked Mr. Green's
2007 Chevrolet truck.
STh^ coup econmpaniedj ji; '

Akridge, who was not named
in the.complaint, then accosted
Mr. Green and Mr. Salts. They
accused Ms. Foster of breaking
a windshield with a belt buckle,
which she also allegedly used
on Mr. Salts during the ensuing
fight.
Both complainants received
unspecified injuries during the
incident that occurred about 2:00
am.
Interviewed later by Deputy
Jeffrey Dawson, Mr. Foster de-
nied being at the car wash but
admitted to being in "an alterca-
tion" at a party earlier that eve-
ning. Ms. Foster said she had no
part in the car wash fight.
Another complaint alleg-
ing battery stems from an early
morning scuffle with an inmate
at county jail on January 3.
Sgt. Clinton Thrift said inmate
Donald Howard, 38, of Glen
struggled with him and two other
officers, Thomas Dyal and John
Holton, when they removed him
from A-dorm about 1:20.
Mr. Howard also allegedly spit
repeatedly at nurse Lisa Norman

him following the incident.

Brother is suspected in


theft ofcharm bracelets


A Macclenny woman named
her brother as the person who
took two gold charm necklaces
valued at $400 from her resi-
dence off Grissholm St. on Janu-
ary 5.
In a complaint filed the next
day, Darlene Dixon said she was
tipped off that her brother Jer-
maine Dixon, 32, had attempted
to sell the necklaces for $20 to
purchase drugs. When she then
checked ajewelry box at her res-
idence, they were gone.
Deputy Claude Hurley said
he attempted without success to
contact the suspect at the home
of his parents near Glen St.
Mary. A criminal complaint al-
leging was to be filed against Mr.
Dixon with the state attorney's
office this week.
In other recent thefts from
residences, Linda Kuerzie said
someone removed jewelry val-
ued at $1300 while she was away


New Year's Eve and part of the
following day.
Deputy Mike Hauge said it
appeared someone entered the
home off Odis Yarbrough Rd.
through a rear window and shoe
prints were found nearby. The
property consisted of rings, a
bracelet, necklace and earrings
valued at $300.
An unlocked door was the
likely point of entry at the resi-
dence of Robert Colbert off San-
dra St. in Macclenny overnight
December 31 when tools valued
at $1500 were taken.
Some of them belonged to a
sheet metal firm in Palatka, said
the victim, who is an employee.
Others belonged to Robert Der-
osier, who gave the residence
as his address also. The loot in-
cluded a tool kit valued at $600
and sheet metal shears and radio
valued at $300 each.


Caution on those outdoorfires


With the cooler temperatures
a lot of people are heading out-
doors. From burning their yard
trash to staying warm by the
campfire, many are making use
of outdoor fires.
The Florida Division of For-
estry would like to remind peo-
ple to exercise caution when en-
joying these activities. Here are
some helpful tips to keep in mind
when burning outdoors:
V Before you begin burning
yard debris, check with your lo-
cal Division of Forestry office to
make sure it is legal to bur in
your area.
V Position your pile in an area
that meets the required setbacks.
Be sure to only bum yard waste,
no household garbage (includes
paper products and newspapers).
V Whether you are burning
yard debris or enjoying a camp-
fire, do not bum on windy days.
-VKeep a water hose or shovel

handy in case the fire escapes. Be
sure the smoke is not obstructing
visibility on nearby roads.
V Never leave the fire unat-
tended and be sure that it is com-
pletely extinguished before leav-
ing.
Most of the area's vegetation
is really dry, making it very flam-
mable. By taking some steps of
precaution the risk of the fire es-
caping is considerably reduced.
