A circuit judge sentenced a
27-year-old defendant to a five-
year term in state prison this
week after he agreed to a plea
deal just prior to being tried
on three
charges.

Dwayne

guilty to

his part
of the deal and the state in turn
dropped charges of lewd and
lascivious molestation and bat-
tery.
Mr. Combs entered the plea
through counsel Darla Chris-
topher of Macclenny just prior
to jury selection on Monday,
and Judge Phyllis Rosier im-
posed the sentence shortly af-
ter. He gets credit for 243 days
in county jail since his arrest on
October 10 of last year.
That is when he was accused
of entering a Northwood Apart-

The City of Macclenny and Baker County Commission are both
in the process of tightening temporary busi-
1 ness regulations affecting roadside vendors, By

Macclenny commissioners took the first step Joel

Most of Baker County's younger students made
gains, according to the Florida Department of Edu-
cation's last round of FCAT scores released this past
week but high school juniors and those seniors
retaking the test to graduate had a less stellar perfor-
mance. ,
The number of eleventh graders with passing sci-
ence test scores dropped 6 percent. And while the
science test scores for eighth graders rose by one per-
cent, fifth graders dropped three percent. Only ju-
niors, eighth and fifth graders take the science test.
On math tests, the largest increase in passing stu-
dents came from fifth graders at Keller Intermediate.
Fifth graders posted a 17 percent gain in math this
year over last year's 45 percent of student's passing.
Fourth graders posted a 3 percent gain.
Ninth graders garnered an 11 percent jump in
math and six percent in reading.
Other grades made only slight gains or losses

eighth graders increased their passing scores by five
percent in math. Seven percent more eighth graders
passed the reading portion this year, while 63 per-
cent of seventh graders passed this year's reading, the
same as last year.
A comparison to statewide scores show the Bak-
er County district scores are comparable to those
around the state. In reading, 39 percent of Baker's
ninth graders passed up from 33 percent last year
- while their state counterparts posted 46 percent. In
math, however, Baker County beat the state's scores
by three percentage points.
Results were also released for seniors who retook
'the reading and math FCAT tests, which all students
must pass to graduate.
Of the 55 students retaking the reading portion,
only six, or 11 percent, passed. On the math re-test,
only five of 21 students passed.

during a hearing June 16. The
measure was first adopted in
2002.
County Manager Joe Cone
saidthe new ordinance will raise
permit fees and add language to
make the regulations more con-
sistent with city standards.
"It leads to less confusion
among residents and business-
es," he said.
Just as in the city, no transient
businesses can operate on pub-
lic land, however; yard sales and
produce sales are allowed on
private property with the own-
er's permission.
Mr. Cone said the county's
new regulations would increase
fees and include a long and de-
tailed list of permit require-
ments, for instance, public liabil-
ity insurance coverage of no less
than $1 million for bodily injury
and $50,000 for property.
The new ordinance also
doesn't.allow operation of tem-
porary businesses anywhere in
the county without first obtain-
ing a permit, which could cost
$300 per day.
A less expensive temporary
peddler permit, costing $50 for
three days, would also be avail-
able.

The unemployed suspect was

Calculated into the sentence

record for offenses ranging from
purchase of cocaine, battery,
worthless checks and driving

IMPRESSIONS
JIMMcGAULEY

I'll admit its a bit simplistic
and dismissive as far as opinions
go, but I've always believed a
person would have to be nuts to
want to be president.
Now I believe a person would
have to be nuts to just run for
president.
The strain long campaigns
place on a person, and his or her
family, are stupendous and
that's if the candidate strives
as many do to keep his (or her)
closest family members as insu-
lated as possible.
You're out there, you're a
target .for a media hungry for
conflict and manned by hun-
dreds of people looking for the
next award broadcast, print
or whatever.
Schedules are grueling, your
every movement is staged,
Every minute of your waking
day is taken up by advisors,
speechwriters, persons seeking
favors, special interest groups
and requests for appearances.
And that's before you're
subjected to the never-ending
quest for campaign funds. That
means begging for money from
people who expect something in
return.
It's crazy.
I had the pleasure of meet-
ing John McCain last week just
before he spoke to the Florida
Press Association annual meet-
ing in Orlando.
He seemed very pleasant, at
ease and comfortable in his skin
(I had to use that cliche!). My
guess is he's the only presiden-
tial candidate who knows where
Baker County is (he was sta-


tioned at Cecil Field before and
after his captivity as a POW in
North Vietnam and lived for a
time in Orange Park).
Even a brief encounter with a
candidate drives home how sur-
real their lives must be.
The Secret Service wants to
know everything: your name,
where you'll be standing, the
order in which you will great the
candidate. It's their "you-know-
whats" on the line if an over-
looked security detail results in
tragedy.
The handlers, well they
don't want any miscues, either.
Campaign. workers are profes-
sional worriers, it appeared to
me, and they paced nervously


for thejob

until and during Mr.'McCain's
arrival (candidates generally run
late).
When he got close, the agents
were all eyes and that wasn't
because we were such a good
looking group. No quick moves,
just an easy handshake and
pleasantries.
It was a great experience and
I'd vote for Mr. McCain even if
he'd stomped on my foot and
yelled "Gotcha!"
But I don't envy him or any
other candidate. It's often said
that every little boy (girl?) wants
to grow up to be president.
Maybe true until he (she)
gets a few years on him (her).

Correction:

Figures from Baker County
staff to the The Baker County
Press showing the amount the
county's general fund subsidizes
fire, solid waste and emergency
medical services (EMS) were in
error in the front page story of
the June 5 edition.
The solid waste services bud-
get has not been subsidized by
the general fund since the 2002-
2003 fiscal year, when the New
River landfill started refunding
the county's $175,000 annual
payment, stated Finance Direc-
tor Debbie Perryman by e-mail.

that will be subsidized through
the general fund. However, that
figure has not been verified by
the finance department yet.
The general fund's subsidy of
the EMS budget, estimated to be
$474,000 this year, was correct.
Therefore, the total general
fund subsidy for all three depart-
ments is estimated to be more
than $537,000, not $700,000 as
reported.

Baker County Press incorrectly

and don't have to drive to work.
Number two: I don't need to do
massive amounts of driving to
gather information for my job
or deliver papers to our regular
local advertisers on Wednesday
after the newspaper is delivered
from the printer.
Number three, I don't have
children to transport to and from
school or to a dozen extra-cur-
ricular activities. Number four: I
can't afford to go anywhere any-
way, so I don't do much travel-
ing for pleasure.
What I save at the pump is
eroded away by the steady flow
of itemized statements from
the health insurance company
about, the portion of expenses
they don't cover followed by
the bills for the balance. Or by
such "kick-in-the-wallet" events
as having the transmission go
out in my truck or the ongoing,
seemingly never-ending expense
of having dental work done.
If you count every penny at
this point like I do, it makes the
prospect of travel, especially for
recreation, seem remote. By the
time I pay for the gas to travel to
and return from a desired desti-
nation of any considerable dis-
tance, there won't be much left
to paying for lodging.
Forget eating out and shop-
ping, even moderately, which
pretty much negates the whole'
notion of vacation, especially
for a single person without the
benefit of sharing expenses. So
why not charge it? Not when
I'm already paying off the dental
work and the transmission. So
I'm left with little prospect for
travel, something I had hoped to
do more of as I got older.
Which makes the travel
experiences I have had very pre-
cious. I've been to Italy several
times. The first time, I met an
Italian man on the plane from
London to Rome, who subse-
quently became my boyfriend. I
had a transcontinental romance
for several years and spent time
with his family. I will always be
grateful for that part of my life.
And I have gorgeous photos to
help me remember.
I snorkled off of Sand Key
near Key West and experienced
a living coral reef and the crea-
tures that inhabit it. It was like
stepping into a 3D National
Geographic photo expedition.
I've stood at the edge of the
Cliffs of Moher in Ireland and
looked down into a chasm near-
ly unfathomable to the imagina-
tion.
The prospect of travelingnow
seems pretty remote. I assumed,
once I moved to Florida, that I
would be seeing lots of Florida,
but even that out of the question
now. It's a good thing I'm used
to staying home. It would make
some people nuts to be around
the house so much.
I recently came across an
Internet video about a man who
has invented a car engine that
runs off of water, and baby,
it can't get on the market fast
enough for me! Yet, I doubt if
I'll spe it happen in time to ben-
efit me.
I've been reading for years
that all the energy we would ever
need exists in the oceans locked
up in hydrogen molecules.
Legislators speak of the need to
colonize the moon and mars, but
our country can't seem to devel-
op clean, economical sources of
energy for the world where we
already live.

concerns involving federal programs. The Republican senator is up for re-election in 2010.

Mormons host genealogical center


(from page 1)
the desire."
Mr. Purdie is quick to dispel
a concern some people may have
about using the facility.
"We love sharing the gospel
doctrine of our beliefs, of course,
but unless a patron specifically
asks questions about our faith,
that does not happen. We are
not in the center to proselytize
about our faith. The purpose is
the conducting of genealogical
research," he said."
Faith is what fuels the Lat-
-ter-day Saint's devotion to ge-
neglogical research and stems
directly from their belief system.
Because the family unit is so fun-
'damental to their theology, great
emphasis is placed on research-
ing and identifying their ances-
tors. Latter-day Saints believe
that the spirit is eternal and is
not predicated on physical birth
for the beginning of its existence
and that the spirit also continues
beyond ph) sical death.
Latter-day Saints recognize
that many people from previ-
ous generations, for numerous
reasons, may not have had the
opportunity to be baptized. The
church holds a sacred temple
ceremony known as "Baptism
for the Dead," in which a living
member, may, by proxy, under-
go a baptism on behalf of a de-
ceased relative or ancestor.
In the spirit realm, these indi-
viduals are then free to accept or
reject the baptism. For members
of the church, this vicarious work,
considered sacred, is viewed as a
labor of love on the part of the
living in behalf of the dead.
On a typical day the Mac-
clenny Family History Center
is open, volunteers like Valerie
Swartz of Glen St. Mary may
be busy at one of the computers
using a program developed by
the church called FamilySearch.
She inserts a tiny flash drive,
about the size of a pack of gum,
into the A drive. The flash drive
contains the vast amount of in-
formation making up her family
tree.
Computer technology has
revolutionized genealogical re-
search and Ms. Swartz can attest
to this all too well.
"Before, everything was done
by hand on paper records. I used
to have a large suitcase filled
with records and documents that
I had to haul around to librar-
ies and archives to perform re-
search on my family," she says.
"It weighed about 50 pounds."
She also holds up a three-
inch thick spiral bound book of
genealogical history belonging
to another member who is busy
conducting research. The flash
drive eliminates the need to
carry such unwieldy documents
from place to place.
"I conduct an introduction to
research methods to Boy Scout
troops who use it to complete
requirements for earning some
of their badges," she said. "I ask
them, what would you rather
carry around, a suitcase, this
heavy book or this little flash
drive?"
The user-friendly FamilySe-
arch software is perfect for the
novice as well as the seasoned
researcher. A research guidance
category explains the six basic


steps involved in getting started:
Remember your ancestors
Use sources in your home
Ask relatives
Choose a family or ancestor
to research
Identify existing research
records
Search records for your an-
cestor
The program is set up in Ge-
nealogical Exchange Data for-
mat which enables it to accept
various formats of information
and easily convert the data to the
template files.
Searchers can access such
resources as the International
Genealogical Index data base
which contains over 600 mil-
lion names of deceased persons.
Most of the records in the main
library date from 1500-1930 and
cover the United States, Latin
America, Asia, Africa, Europe,
Canada and the British Isles.
The site also links users to ge-
nealogical conferences, seminars,
home-study courses, family his-
tory publications and a wealth of
other resources. A free download
of the FamilySearch program is
also available from the website.
"Many of our researchers
now work from their homes,"
said. Mr. Duncan. "Otherwise,
this center would be stuffed to
the gills."
In addition to researching
their own familial lines, volun-
teers and church members also
carry on the continuous work of
extraction locating and copy-
ing information from existing
sources such as birth; marriage,
death, census and news releases.
The information is entered into
the main library's data base on
an on-going basis.
A great repository known as
the Granite Mountain Records
Vault, which was literally bored
out of a mountain near Salt Lake
City, is also maintained by the
Family Research Library and
is where master copies of more
than 2.4 million microfilm rolls
are kept.
Patrons can request copies of
records from the main library for
which the center places an order.
A microfilm copy is then sent to


the center. The record does not
leave the center, but patrons can
make their own copies.
The Macclenny center is lo-
cated on S. 5th Street across
from the Macclenny post office.
Center hours are Tuesday,
12:00-2:00 and 6:00-8:00;
Wednesday, 10:00-12:00 and
6:30-8:00.

A violent


inmate hit


withfelony

An intoxicated woman ar-
rested the evening of June 3 for
a probation violation ended up
with an additional charge of fel-
ony resisting after she violently
resisted being processed at coun-
ty jail.
Krissy Starling, 28, of Mac-
clenny was arrested at a residence
off Keith Griffis Rd. about 7:45,
according to the report by Dep-
uty John Hardin. He described
her as "combative" on the trip to
county jail. Once there, she con-
tinued to curse at jail Sgt. Jody
Dyal and had to be placed in a
holding cell to detoxify.
She continued to rant loudly
there, and jail deputy Jason Bar-
nett administered a spray of pep-
per gas to calm her.
Ms. Starling continued to be
abusive both to jail staff and oth-
er inmates of the female H Dorm
when escorted there to shower
off the pepper spray. Deputies
Barnett and Jeffrey Davis were
called in to assist Sgt. Dyal after
Ms. Starling pushed her away
and attempted to strike her. The
report notes that Ms. Starling
broke a front tooth when she fell
against a shower wall.
Eight other inmates in the
dorm witnessed the melee.


Boyfriend


stole, cashed


two checks
A Macclenny man was ar-
rested June 4 after he allegedly
admitted to stealing and cash-
.ing two checks on the account
of Brandie Young, also of Mac-
clenny.
Ms. Young told Deputy Chris
Walker Jr. she suspected that Da-
vid Brannen, 39, took the checks
when he borrowed her vehicle
May 31 to get both of them
something to eat. She noticed
on June 4 that six blank checks
had been taken from her book,
and later that day learned two
of them were cashed at Vystiar
Credit Union and CVS Pharma-
cy for a total of $87.61.
Deputy Walker said Mr. Bran-
nen admitted the allegations
when questioned. Both forgeries
are third-dpgree felonies.
In other cases, Marcus Ellig,
49, of Lafayette, La. was arrested
for attempting to leave the Wal-
Mart Supercenter the afternoon
of June 3 with $157.45 in stolen
merchandise.
An employee from the store's
loss prevention department said
she observed Mr. Ellig take
clothing, beer and ice from the
inventory, put them in Wal-Mart
bags already in his possession,
and attempt to leave the store.
Geneva McCollum, 59, of
Glen St. Mary faces a similar
charge after she was spotted by
the same employee attempting to
steal a swimming suit and other
small items valued at $46 the af-
ternoon of June 4.

Young suspect in jail



for whirlwind ofthefts


during a 4-day period


A Sanderson man with a
lengthy juvenile record for thefts
and other offenses is back in jail
this week, charged with a string
of thefts during a four-day period
last week.
Joshua Baldenegro, 18, was
taken into custody after the car
he was riding in was stopped for
speeding on CR 229
south of Sanderson
about 1:30 am on
June 6. Deputy Ran-
dy Davis said the sus-
pect was in posses-
sion of two shotguns
with altered identifi-
cation, a third-degree
felony. He was also
booked for larceny
and later for posses-
sion of firearms by a
convicted felon due
to a 2007 conviction
for grand theft. Joshua
Deputy Davis'
report indicates the
suspect said he purchased the
shotguns in Jacksonville for $50
each and that he admitted at-
tempting to sell them for cash or
drugs.
Sheriff's investigators said
Mr. Baldenegro is responsible
for three theft crimes in the
Sanderson area starting on June
3 when Brenda Mattox opened
her tavern on US 90 and found
that someone entered through a
window and stole more than two
cases of beer.
Pickled eggs and sausage
bottles were also taken, and a
sink damaged when the intruder
stood on it to get access to the
window.
The suspect first drew police
suspicion amid reports he was
bragging to friends about stealing
the beer, and Investigator David
Morgan noted that empty cans
of the missing brand were found
outside the residence of William
and Linda Davis, who live across
from Brenda's Place on US 90.
Mr. Baldenegro, who had been
staying with the Davis couple
three days, denied involvement.
Mr. and Mrs. Davis reported
on June 5 that someone took
$240 from a purse and pants


Bal


pocket during the night, and
named Mr. Baldenegro as the
chief suspect. Warned by a rela-
tive of the suspect who lives in
the same neighborhood that she
had kicked him out of her house
for smoking crack, the Davises
had driven him to an address off
Richardson Rd.
They believe Mr.
Baldenegro, who
they had taken in be-
cause-he had nowhere
else to stay, took the
money after return-
ing to their residence
in the early morning
hours.
Just before mid-
night on June 4,
deputies were called
via an alarm to the
residence of Eddy
Bishara off US 90
east of Sanderson,
ldenegro where a male sub-
ject was seen fleeing
into a nearby wooded area after
exiting a west side door. A Baker
Correctional K-9 track team was
summoned, and followed a scent
from the scene through nearby
woods to near the intersection of
US 90 and CR 127.
Police and investigators found
some of the property taken from
the residence near a pond on the
southwest corer of the property.
One laptop and a Rolex watch
the owner valued at $17,000 plus
other items were returned.
Later, Mr. Bishara said a
$15,000 diamond ring, $2500
guitar and a men's bracelet val-
ued at $2500 were taken. He
put the value of all the property,
including the returned items, at
$36,200.
It was not immediately clear
how the sheriff's department is
linking Mr. Baldenegro to the
Bishara burglary. ,
Chief investigator Chuck
Brannan said the suspect has a-
string of thefts on his criminal
record, and had been staying for
brief periods at the home of his
grandmother in Jacksonville and
at other locations.

Code board gives defendant



time to clear mountain oftires


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Norris Coleman has a tire
problem.
He said he bought his proper-
ty on Clayton Road in 1987 and
has been finding tires ever since
- about 10,000 of them.
"I've been moving tires ever
since," he told the Code En-
forcement Board June 9, which
cited the property for a lack of
skirting on the mobile home
he placed on the property after
clearing the land.
That violation has been rem-
edied.
But the junk and debris viola-
tion for the tires has been ongo-
ing for years.
Little by little, Mr. Coleman
said he's been removing the gar-
bage left to him when he bought
the property from the late T.J.
Raulerson.
"It's been costing me a lot of


money to get rid of them," he
said. "It was a good deal, but
that's probably because it had
tires on it."
Code Officer Mr. Thomas
examined the property more re-
cently and said a considerable
amount of clean-up had taken
place, "but a number of tires still
'need to be removed and it does
show some considerable im-
provement."
When asked how many tires
are left, Mr. Coleman estimated
about 600 stacked into a 10-foot
tall pile and that it would take
him six months to complete re-
moval and come into compli-
ance. "I can only afford what I
can afford."
Code board members gave
Mr. Coleman six months to
come into compliance and after
that time, decide what fines, if
any, they would levy against the
property.
Another case considered by


the code board this week was
that of Annie May Parker's
property at 10127 CR 127 N.
in Sanderson, the subject of a
mobile home skirting violation
caused by a vehicle crashing
into the trailer, which Ms. Park-
er rents out.
Board attorney John Broling
has been in contact with the in-
surance company responsible
for covering the damage, and
said Tuesday afternoon repair of
the structure has been delayed
by a death in the Parker family
and injury to the contractor. The
insurance company liable for the
damage issued a check in late
May.
No action was taken in that
case.
In other business, the board
seated new member Brian
Griffis, who replaced Sam An-
ger, a long-time code enforce-
ment officer and board member
in Baker County.

Dayibhtrobberiesat two


city homes; other thefs


Two homes in the Macclenny
area were entered during daylight
hours on the same day and loot-
ed of computers, cash and other
valuables. The front doors were
forced open in both incidents.
Kathryn Perdue-Smith re-
turned to her residence on West
Boulevard around noon to find
several rooms ransacked and
two televisions, a laptop com-
puter, keys, a cable box and oth-
er items missing. Deputy Patrick
McGauley noted that other valu-
ables including jewelry were left
behind. He did not give an esti-
mate of the loss.
An estimated $1103 in valu-
ables were taken from the Florida
Ave. address of Devon Burnsed
between 7:15 am-noon, includ-
ing a laptop, $100 cash from a
coin jar and keys. Ms. Burnsed
told Deputy Chris Walker a bur-
glary alarm was not activated be-
cause she leaves a cat indoors.
Issac Dixon reported the
theft of a .22 caliber rifle from
his residence off Thompson Rd.
in Glen St. Mary on June 7.
He suspects his son Jermaine,
32, may be responsible for the
theft and disarray of his bedroom,
and told Deputy Bill Starling
the son, who lives in a camper
nearby, had taken the rifle once
before. It was returned to Mr,
Dixon after the son attempted to
sell it.
The deputy said the younger
Dixon was not located for ques-
tioning.
Bonnie Jankowski found
that someone entered her resi-
dence off US 90 west in Sander-
son when she went to it May 29
to retrieve property. A rear door
was open, and the inventory of

process of moving belongings to
another residence on the same
lot.


Beer used


as weapon


in batteries
' A patron atV MacIs Liquors, in
downtown Macclenny was ar-
rested for battery the evening of
June 4 after he allegedly tossed
a beer in the face of a female pa-
tron and slapped her in the face.
Christina Latham, 38, of Glen
St. Mary told Deputy Nicky
Mizell she was accosted by Rich-
ard Ellis, 37, of Glen St. Mary
about 11:00 am. She also said
she saw him urinating on her car
in the parking lot earlier.
In other cases, a criminal
complaint for battery will be
filed with the state attorney's of-
fice accusing Eddie Fields, 34, of
Macclenny of throwing a canned
beer in the face of Hidies Akins,
46, also of Macclenny.
The incident occurred off
MLK Dr. about 9:30 the evening
of June 6, according to Deputy
Curtis Ruise, and was the result
of an ongoing feud between the
two. Mr. Akins said a second
attack took place about 30 min-
utes later at the BP station down-
town.
Heather Smith, 20, of Glen
accused Porsche Mahan, 18, of
attacking her during an argument
at the latter's address off Tom
Norman Rd. the evening of June
8.
The alleged victim said Ms.
Mahan pulled her head by the
hair and struck her several times.
She denied the allegations in a
subsequent interview with Dep-
uty John Hardin.


Domestic battery


A husband who allegedly
grabbed his wife and threw her
onto a couch during an argument
the afternoon of June 4 was ar-
rested for domestic violence.
Beverly Lauramore, 36, came
to the county sheriff's annex in
Macclenny after collecting four
guns at her residence off Aza-
lea Dr. and accused her husband
Joel, 36, of accosting her during
an argument over an incident
the previous evening. She had
redness on both of her arms, ac-
cording to the report by Deputy
Jeffrey Dawson, and said the
couple's 10-year-old daughter
was present at the time.
Mr. Dawson, interviewed by
Deputy Chris Walker, said the
wife grabbed and pushed him
when he attempted to leave their
house with the daughter. He had
a scratch mark on his neck which
he said was inflicted by Mrs.
Lauramore.
In other cases, Tarus Wilson,
20, was charged with violating
an earlier domestic violence in-
junction by showing up at the
residence of estranged wife Alli-
son, 25, on E. Olhio in Macclenny
the afternoon of June 30.
Mrs. Wilson told police her
husband has not been living
there since last November, and
forced himself inside from the
front door. He told Deputy Erik
Deloach he went there to get
clothing.
Numerous criminal com-
plaints were filed recently in oth-
er domestic-related incidents:
Against Kyle Duncan, 20, of
Macclenny for violating an in-
junction keeping him away from
his 16-year-old girlfriend. The


girl was found walking with her
infant child along US 90 about
2:00 am on June 2, according

Transients, youth face


disorderly into charges


Two transient males ended
up in county jail the morning
of June 7 after they were found
at the Macclenny'park off West
Boulevard.
Deputy Erik Deloach said he
approached Kurt Schuepbach,
53, of Hickory, N.C. as he stood
beside a parked white GEO
Tracker that had a variety of per-
sonal belongings stacked inside
as if it was being lived in.
Mr. Scheupback was intoxi-
cated and described himself as a
"hobo." The officer also noted a
second male, identified as Larry
Gonzalez, 49, of Uvalde, Texas
walking toward him shirtless and
wet from bathing in the nearby
pond.
Mr. Gonzolez repeatedly in-
terrupted the officer while he at-
tempted to question Mr. Schuep-
bach and said he was calling his
lawyer. When again told to calm
himself, Deputy Deloach quotes
Mr. Gonzalez as saying, "The
last officer that messed with me
in Texas, I was forced to defend
myself."
He was arrested and placed in
a patrol car.
Mr. Gonzalez was charged
with disorderly conduct and re-
sisting arrest without violence;
Mr. Scheupback with disorderly
intoxcation.


The incident occurred just af-
ter 9:00.
In other cases, two drunk and
underage males found stagger-
ing in the middle of CR 125 just
north of Mud Lake Rd. just after
midnight on June 7 were booked
for disorderly intoxication.
Deputy Tony Crawford said
Elick Griffis, 20, of Glen St.
Mary and Jerry Johns, 19, of
Macclenny were nearly struck
by a motorist on 125 as he ap-
proached them. Earlier, he han-
dled a complaint by Jeromy Lau-
uramore-that Mr. Griffis made
harassing phone calls to his resi-
dence off Mallie Davis Rd.
Mr. Griffis in subsequent
questioning admitted to making
the calls and said he did so be-
cause the complainant was dat-
ing his ex-girlfriend. The two had
scuffled the previous evening.
Robert Nelson, 44, of Mac-
clenny was booked on a similar
charge after he was found stag-
gering in the middle of West
Boulevard near Shuey about
10:00 the evening of June 5.
Deputy Mike Hauge described
Mr. Nelson as "extremely intoxi-
cated" and at the time was re-
sponding to a call from nearby
Mac's Liquors where the subject
had been disruptive.

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The Baker County Council
on Aging sponsored its third an-
nual Information and Resource
Extravaganza June 10 at the
First Baptist Church of Glen St.
Mary. The theme of the event
was "Help Yourself to a Better
Life."
The motto of the COA is
"Helping People Help Them-
selves" which they do through a
multitude of vital services to the
area's senior population. The ex-
travaganza was originally devel-
oped as an opportunity to pro-
mote the availability of services
for all age groups.
S"Part of the COA's overall
mission is evolving toward help-
ing people take advantage of
services early in life that will
benefit them during the entirety
of life, not just during their se-
nior years," said COA director
MarN Baxla.
Having seen similar events at
other organizations, Ms. Baxla
felt it a good project to imple-
ment for Baker County. The five
major benefits of attending the
extravaganza can be summed up
in the acronym ILFCD:
Identify tools and resources
available in our community.
* Learn to cope with or avoid
major challenges to healthy ag-
ing.
Find help with advance
planing.
Connect with other current
and potential caregivers.
SDiscover resources you need
to "help yourself" live your best
life.
"We make plans for so many
other things during out lives.
We make plans to graduate, to
marry, to have children. Yet we
typically don't plan on getting
older," Ms. Baxla pointed out.
The aim of education through
such events is to encourage the
goal of growing older in the
healthiest way possible. They
can help people become aware
of resources and opportunities
before they are actually needed.
"Getting folks to take a pro-


aganza brings out


old at COA event


active approach, to be as inde-
pendent as possible for as long
as possible is the mindset we
are trying to promote with this
event," said Ms. Baxla.
As attendees moved along the
booths they became informed
on everything from the proper
way to install an infant car seat
to tips on wise financial invest-
ing and the advantages of taking
a Tai Chi class to improve bal-
ance and stamina.
They were also educated on
avoiding falls and severe head
injuries, healthy cooking and
prevention of identity theft.
Information was available on
health insurance claims, filing
for Social Security and learn-
ing how to protect yourself from
home repair fraud. There was
even a booth on local counsel-
ing services to address medica-


tion, alcohol and mental health
problems.
Door prizes and great re-
freshments were also some of
the perks to be had by attending
the extravaganza.
A heavy downpour didn't de-
ter the turnout and attendance
was steady throughout the eve-
ning. Ms. Baxla recalls how the
participating vendors braved
rough weather to put on the ex-
travaganza several years ago.
"The first year we held the
event, a hurricane decided to hit
the area," she said. "That didn't
stop the vendors from coming to
educate people about their ser-
vices."
"We want people to under-
stand that this is a service to the
entire community, not just the
senior population we already
serve," Ms. Baxla said.


Complaints field in track thefi

vandalizing of2 semi-trailers


A criminal complaint for vehi-
cle theft was filed June 8 against
a Sanderson boyfriend who al-
legedly took a 1998 Dodge Du-
rango from a residence off Sand-
erson Circle and failed to return
it.
Owner Leslie Starling said she
and Anthony Moore, 37, argued
late the previous evening and the
boyfriend was intoxicated when
he drove off. He returned twice
the next morningto cause a dis-
turbance, and the second time
was on foot. He refused to reveal
the location of the vehicle.
Deputy Claude Hurley said
a computer check revealed the
suspect was driving the Dodge
with a suspended license.
In other cases, two parked
tractor trailers were the subject
of theft reports, one of them after
an estimated 28 gallons of diesel
fuel was siphoned from its cool-
ing unit tank. The fuel was val-
ued at $130.
Driver Christopher Thomas of
Macclenny discovered the theft


when he went to the semi parked
in a lot east of the county court-
house the morning of June 4. He
had left it there June 2, and the
truck belongs to Davis Express
of Starke.
Someone forced open
the rear trailer door of a semi
parked in the lot adjacent to the
Econolodge motel in south Mac-
clenny overnight June 8, result-
ing in $2500 damage. Driver
Paul Schwanz of Wisconsin
parked it the previous afternoon,
and said two bottles of fruit juice
were taken.
The trailer belongs to Kiko
Foods of Jefferson, La.
An ex-wife was, named a
suspect in vandalism to a parked
pickup truck June 3 belonging to
Casey Combs of Macclenny.
Mr. Combs was working at the
Wal-Mart Supercenter between
11:00 am 8:00 pm when a left
front tire was punctured and the
right side of the truck keyed.

Gary is one of the unsung he-

"Gary's an old hand at this,"
said director Bob Gerard. "He's
been in shows I directed at Baker

love the attention."
Gary was in Snow White and

first things that audiences see in
the show as Curly comes riding

attention doesn't really faze him.
He's had attention all his life."

Early on, Gary was a race-
horse. He won over a quarter of
a million dollars in prize money
when he was owned by the late
Bobby Dugger of Macclenny.
Mr. Dugger's quarter horses were
successful at racetracks around
the country, including Pimlico
and Gulfstream Park.
Hooper got Gary after Mr.
Dugger passed away and he has
been happily grazing and taking
kids for rides ever since.
But being a "star" has never
quite gotten out of Gary's sys-
tem and he continues to enjoy
his opportunities to "trod the

In Loving Memory

6/12/30 4/21/08
If roses grow in Heaven., Lord
please pick a bunch for me,
place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and
hold her for a while.
Because remembering her
is easy, I do it everyday, but
there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

Barbara Ann Rhoden
June 08, 2007
The angels led you safely home,
but you left some things behind.
Treasured gifts beyond compare,
those of a special kind. You left
behind your gift of love you gave
sofaithfidly. You left behind the
ones you loved, many cherished
memories. And from early dawn
till setting sun each day our whole
life through, our hearts will hold a
special place for memories of you.
A year has passed and it still feels
as if it's a bad dream. Didn't know
how painfid this would be. Your
smiling face I'll always see. You
will always be in our memories!
You were honest, kind and had a
wonderfid sense of humor so
thoughtfid in every way. You are
gone but not forgotten, in our
hearts youl will always be. I has
been the worst year of' our te
since \ou have not beeie p rt of
it. But you made a difference in
everyone's life that you touched.
We know God had a special place
for such a beautifid, special an-
gel! God needed you in Heaven,
because your love was not to be
compared. God only gave me one
Momma, I have missed you so
dearly! To my beautifid mother;
wife, and friend, Mrs. Barbara
"Honey" Ann Rhoden. We love you
forever!

Of all the people in my life from beginning to the end I was blessed
to have two dear and faithful friends. They've both shared laughter,
joy and tears, they've both stood by me through the years when I
needed someone to listen. I knew they would always be there, while
I weathered the storms of life they were both the ones who cared. In
this circle we call life from beginning to end I was blessed to have you
both as my dear and faithful friends.

A horse with no horsepower and


old rivals NBA back on the court


I was really hoping Big Brown
would win the Triple Crown. He
reminded me
of my favorite
horse, Seattle F
Slew, who won
the .Crown in Bob
1977. Slew and
Big Brown would get out in front
and run away from the competi-
tion just overpowering them.
From the looks of things, the
big horse seemed set to do what
he did in the first two legs, take
the lead in the second half of the
race and leave the competition in
the dust. He was calm, composed
and seemingly in good shape,
despite a cracked hoof.
It was not to be, however. Not
only did he not win, he finished
dead last.
He came out of the gate well
and avoided too much bumping
on his way to the outside. Ly-
ing in third position, he seemed
poised to turn it on.
Instead, he turned it off. Ac-
cording to the jockey, the thor-
oughbredjust didn't have a race
in him. 'I didn't have a horse
under me," the jockey quipped at
the end of the race.
To save Brown possible in-
jury to the horse, jockey Kent
Desormeaux pulled him up and
didn't push him the rest of the


Ge7


way. Trainer Rick Dutrow, who
loudly predicted the horse would
win, couldn't
A D find any words
after the race.
No one seems
rard to know what
the problem was,
but the horse wasn't ready to run.
Such things happen. That's why
they run the race and play the
game. Favorites sometimes blow
up and the long shots win. That's
what happened with 38-1 long-
shot Da'Tara.
I watched the first game of
the NBA playoffs on Thursday
night and was delighted the Celt-
ics defeated their old rivals the
LA Lakers. It was like the days
of old when Bird and Magic
squared off in the Garden or the
Forum, or even older days when
Bill Russell posted up against
Wilt Chamberlin.
Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce


and Ray Allen looked like Bird,
Kevin McHale and Robert Par-
ish, and Kobe was not Magic
Johnson in Game 1. How the
Lakers will respond in the rest
of the tournament is hard to say.
We'll soon see.
*.Being the huge soccer fan
that I ari, I am glued to the Euro
2008 tournament on ESPN. I'm
probably one of only a handful
of people in the county watching
the championship of Europe. So
far it's been fun. Give it a gan-
der if you have any interest in the
sport.

LOCAL HUNTER JUMPSTARTS VIDEO VENTURE WITH HARVEST
OF TROPHY MANITOBA BLACK BEAR
Clint Cooper of Macclenny is starting a new business called "Goin' Outdoors Video
productions."
It started with a common camcorder and a desire to record his hunts. As time passed he got better and better at camera
placement and knowing when and when not to shoot. But the aspect that did not improve much was video quality. Off-the-
shelf camcorders have inherent limitations, and Clint was obsessed with the desire to make professional quality videos.
Twenty thousand dollars worth of recording and editing equipment later, Goin' Outdoors Video Productions was in
business. The initial concept was to offer a video recording service to, for example, a parent or grandparent who'wanted a
record of a youth's first hunt (and hopefully harvest) on DVD.
Reaction to Clint's first professional efforts was overwhelmingly positive. The consensus was that his work was as good
or better than the average hunting program on television. His venture developed momentum and soon he was in contact
with Comcast, The Sunshine Network, The Outdoor Channel and The Men's Channel
in California, all offering him contracts for the rights to his work. He
now has sponsors that want to be part of it. He has a library of hunts
from Butler Bay Hunting Club locally to as far away as Canada and
Argentina.
"I think that what we're going to do is start out on Comcast cable.
They have a spot they said they'd give me on Thursday nights. They
can put me on at 7:30 on Thursday nights. I think I'll do a few of those
and see where it goes."
Clint's first broadcast will most likely be a recent bow hunt for black
bear in Manitoba, Canada.
On the first day of the hunt, a Monday, he sat a stand and didn't
see a single bear. "It doesn't get dark up there [this time of year] ll :
almost 11:00. At 10:00 it starts getting kind of sunset ... so you sit B
from about 4:00 or 4:30 till' after 10:00 because that's when the
bears are on the move" he said. When he got back to the lodge where he was staying, all the other hunters
reported seeing between four and six bears each.
"So I went back to that same spot the second day. I had probably a 250 pound sow come in and she was acting kind
of funny. I knew it wasn't because of me. Come to find out, she had a yearling with her last year's cub. He was almost
as big as she was. I got some really good footage of them. After they ate, they played with each other for an hour. That's
all I saw the second day.
"And then that third day, that's when it happened. The guide that I was hunting with from Rossman Lake Outfitters in
Rossburn, Manitoba wanted to move me and I was all for it. But when I got up in the stand, the bait's in front of me and the
wind is blowing straight on my back! But what do you do? I had my scent blocker suit on and felt pretty comfortable about
that. I knew I had to sit there till he came to get me."
After only an hour into the hunt, Clint was looking at a spot about 200 yards away. "And I saw this big boy walk out and
I was like 'Oh my goodness!'" he said. It's difficultto judge the size of a two to three hundred pound bear with a healthy-
coat at that range. But a bear weighing nearly 500 pounds walks with a distinct waddle caused by its massive weight. This
bear had so much of a waddle that Clint knew that he had to be a near record trophy specimen.
"He worked his way to within 60 yards of me and that's when all the fun began." Clint looked at the counter on his
camera and realized that the cassette was running low on tape. The bear was too close, besides being downwind, to risk
replacing the tape. He hastily pressed the rewind button, hoping that he could estimate how far to go before he would be
recording over the sow and her yearling from the previous day. If he guessed right, he would only record over footage of
the lodge and that could be shot again. If he guessed short, he might not have enough tape to record his anticipated shot
at this behemoth.
The bear continued to approach until he was within 25 yards, but did not present a good shot. Then he began to.act
cautious and eventually ran off. Another bear, a smaller sow, was coming in and the big boy retreated to let her eat, He
went to a point well beyond bow range and sat on his haunches and watched the sow eat for nearly half an hour. Then he
decided it was his turn. He returned to the bait buckets and ran the sow off.
But between bushes in the way and his angle to the stand, he still didn't present an opportunity, even when he was
as close as 10 yards. After about 15 more minutes of high anxiety, the sow returned and she and the big boar took turns
running each other off. Clint said "This had been going on for an hour. I'd gotten some great video, but I still couldn't take
a shot. I've got this trophy at 10-15 yards for all this time and I still can't get a shot! I knew by now that this was a record
bear. I mean he was a monster!"
Finally, with the setting sun in his eyes, he was given a broadside angle and made a perfect double lung shot on this
magnificent 492-pound cinnamon colored black bear.
That video should go a long way in helping him get his production venture up and running.

In the last Time Out(doors) column I was examining the contrast between city life and country life. Due to a self-
inflicted computer glitch, a poignant example of that contrast was omitted from the finished column submitted to The
Press. (Tip: Never allow magnetized business cards to be near external hard drives.) I had noted.the contra-positional
reactions to hearing gunfire in the country as opposed to hearing it in the city. My observation on the diverse respons-
es to a siren was overlooked when the column was hastily reconstructed and retyped with a deadline looming.
If city people notice a siren at all, it's probably only because they have to get out of the way. The sound of a siren
on Mud Lake Road will initiate numerous phone calls to find out if a neighbor needs help.
