humans.
Though
no humans have come down
with the disease in Florida since
2006, health officials here and
in other counties where it has
been detected in horses, birds,
chickens and even an emu are
advising citizens to take com-
mon sense steps to reduce the
mosquito population and avoid
them while outdoors.
Terry Graham, the envi-
ronmental health director for
Baker County, said 36 horses
have died in Florida from the
disease recently; that means
Baker County accounts for just
under 10 percent of the state's
statistics.
"We don't want to cause any
kind of panic out there, but the
public should take precautions
nonetheless," said Mr. Graham.
"Horse owners would be wise
to contact their veterinarians to
have the animals tested."
Two of the horses here were

sued for


jail death

The mother of a Glen St.
Mary man who died of a drug
overdose in the Baker County
jail in the fall of 2005 filed a
lawsuit in US District Court
this week, alleging the sheriff's
department was negligent and
did not tend to his well-being
during the five hours leading
up to his death.
The suit was filed by Joanne
Thornton, mother of Paul Car-
roll, 33, who was arrested the
night of October 7 after police
were called to his residence
on Timberland Rd. by Ms.
Thornton. Her son had become
disruptive, according to an in-
cident report, and told an ar-
resting officer he had been tak-
ing drugs all day.
Mr. Carroll was booked into
county jail about 11:00, and a
news story published in Oc-
tober 13 edition of The Press
noted that jail personnel said
they checked on him in the iso-

2 ATV wrecks- 9-year old dies
AT* k. s J' '1--


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Two separate ATV acci-
dents in close proximity to one
another, occurring only a few
hours apart, on June 22 left one
passenger dead and another
rider with critical injuries.
The first occurred when
Matthew Williams' 2005 Artic
ATV landed on top of the 18-
year-old Jacksonville resident


about 2:45 pm. Mr. Williams
was thrown from the ATV af-
ter riding over a large mound
of dirt on private property off
Cow Pen Road. He was flown
to Shands Hospital in Jackson-
ville in critical condition.
About two hours later, a
Glen St. Mary man and his
nine-year-old passenger from
Starke were ejected from a
2006 Honda ATV after the
vehicle struck a tree off Crews


Road.
The 26-year-old driver, Na-
thaniel David Ryan, lost con-
trol of the vehicle about 5:00
pm while attempting to nego-
tiate a right curve. The ATV
traveled into ruts on the dirt
road, which redirected the rid-
ers into the tree, states Florida
Highway Patrol's accident re-
port.
The nine-year-old passenger,
William Blane Coburn, was


taken to Fraser Memorial in
critical condition before weath-
er conditions allowed transport
of the boy by helicopter to
Shands, where he later died.
Mr. Ryan suffered only mi-
nor injuries.
None of the riders in either
accident were wearing hel-,
mets and FHP is investigating
whether the accident off Crews
Road is alcohol-related.


Land and resource stud complete

Statepromptedstudy to ensure protect ofagriculturalland


As development in Baker Coun-
ty begins to change the landscape,
Planning Director Ed Preston said
the state wants to be sure that agri-
cultural land and natural resources P
are protected
during the
transition. By
So much Joel
so, the coun- Agr
ty received Addington
a $100,000
grant from Press Staff
grant from
the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs to
perform a study of the county's ag-
ricultural land, resource protection
and transportation.
"We studied agricultural land,
the St. Mary's River and all other
natural resources," Mr. 'Preston
said. "It was designed to look at Nati
what's out there, quantify it and
decide how to protect it."
So what's there?
About 374,000 acres, of which 40 per-
cent is covered by state and national forest
lands, for Baker County's roughly 25,000
people. There's also a workforce of 10,000,
but only enough jobs for about half of that
workforce.
That fact has led to this working vision
statement: A collection of small towns sur-
rounded by forests and farms and supported
by major local employers.
The study also revealed that while the
number of farms and croplands have declined
in recent years, the size of individual farms

has grown, as has the total acreage used for
farming. In 1997, there were 15,221 acres in
farm.uses compared with 21,430 in 2007.
However, the average sales per farm has
declined during that period, from $126,997
in 1997 to $122,315 in 2007..
Mr. Preston will present these and the
rest of the study's results at this week's Land
Planning Agency (LPA) meeting June 26.
And while the study was funded by the
state, it was also prompted by the state's con-
cern over Baker County's plans for conver-
sion of agricultural land for residential and
commercial developments, like Cedar Creek

for instance.
"Tallahassee's worried we'll run out of
agricultural land and also that we may not
be taking care of our natural resources. They
want to see how we're going to protect the
St. Mary's, agricultural land and other natu-
ral resources," said Mr. Preston.
The study's findings will be used by a
consultant to draft policy changes in the
county's comprehensive plan.
Also on the LPA's June 26 agenda are
some changes to the county's development
agreement for the Greystone subdivision,

10 years


in prison


for theft


anddrugs
A chronic offender whose
prosecution was delayed sev-
eral years because he was con-
fined to a state mental hospital
was sent to prison for ten years
on Monday on theft and drug
charges spanning the years
2003 through 2006.
Once Funston Clifford
(Scooter) Mann, 36, of Sander-
son is released from prison, he

al years
based
on the
agree-




defense
prose-
cution. Mr. Mann
Cir-
cuit Judge Phyllis Rosier im-
posed the sentence during a
regular docket session this
week.
The charges against Mr.
Mann stem from trafficking in
stolen vehicle parts and dealing
in stolen property back in 2003
to sale and possession of pre-
scription medication two sum-,
mers ago.
The defendant, who sus-
tained some brain damage years
ago from a gunshot wound, was
confined for a period follow-
.ing the first series of cases to
Florida State Hospital at Chat-
tahoochee.' Eventually he was
declared competent to stand
trial.
Several other defendants
scored state prison terms this
week, including Tonya Sue Go-
odrich of Macclenny, who will
serve five years for trafficking
in controlled medication and
obtaining it via forged prescrip-
tion pads stolen from a Jack-
sonville physician.
Ms. Goodrich, 24, will be
on drug-offender probation ten
years following release, and
must serve a minimum three
years. She was also assessed a
$50,000 fine.
The charges stem from a No-
vember, 2007 case in which the
defendant obtained drugs from
a local pharmacy after an ac-
complice presented the bogus
prescription. She will get credit
for 209 days in county jail since
the arrest.
Michael Valarinos, 28,
of Jacksonville pleaded to 20
theft, criminal mischief and
burglary charges and drew a
four-year sentence, minus 215
days since his arrest in Febru-
ary of last year.
Mr. Valarinos went on a one-
man crime spree in the parking
lot of the Wal Mart Supercent-
er, breaking into seven vehicles
and fleeing into a wooded area
off Spence Rd. where he was
caught, along with pilfered
property.
Sean Johnson, 31, of Mac-
clenny was given 24 months in
prison plus two years on drug-
offender probation after ad-
mitting to bringing drugs into
county jail. Mr. Johnson was
convicted by a jury earlier this
month of trespass and battery
of his girlfriend.

own. Mr. Graham indicated the
disease is always fatal in horses.
Birds are also known to get it, or
one of several strains of it like
the West Nile or St. Louis virus-
es, and anyone who finds a dead
bird should call the health office
at 259-3569.
A Department of Health ad-
visory indicated the number of
EEE cases reported by veteri-
narians across Florida exceeded
the normal levels for both May
and June.
Two similar horse deaths
were reported in nearby Brad-
ford County.

which was first approved several
years ago but never built.
"All the things they propose
are scale backs," said Mr. Pres-
ton.
He added that Greystone's
developers want to.reduce the
minimum square footage re-
quired from 1200-square-feet
to 1000-square-feet per unit, go
from two-car to one-car garages,
and replace plans for a pool and
clubhouse with a picnic pavilion,
among other changes.
Greystone is located off .US
90 just east of the Baker County
High School campus. Streets
and other infrastructure are in
place, but no homes have been
constructed on the tract abutting
the Little St. Mary's River.
The LPA meeting begins at

sion building, 55 N. 3rd St. in

Avoiding bug-borneviruses...
Baker County residents can lessen the chances of being infected
with mosquito-borne viruses by well, reducing their potential
numbers and eliminating breeding sites, usually places with standing
water.
The health department recommends taking these steps:
V Avoid being outdoors at dusk or dawn, when mosquitoes are hun-
gry for a blood meal. Wear clothing that covers the skin.
SUse repellents containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyp-
tus and IR3535. Check labels.
V-Get rid of standing water near your home and yards. Common
receptacles for breeding include clogged eaves and gutters, plastic
pots tarps and other covers and blocked drainage ditches.
/Replace water in birdbaths and pet feeding dishes at least week-
ly.
These steps are particularly important because Baker and most
other non-urban counties do not have mosquito control agencies.

three bags of marijuana and one
Hydrocodone pill were found on
Mr. Johnson during a strip search
at the jail on February 27 of this
year.
Police received a tip that the
defendant would be bringing the
drugs back from a court appear-
ance. The contraband and pre-
scription medication charges are
third-degree felonies; the mari-
juana charge a misdemeanor.
Christina Harvey will be
on house arrest two years after
pleading no contest to leaving
the scene of an injury accident in
September, 2007 and driving on
a suspended license.
Sekou Olugbala got an ad-
ditional seven months in county
jail in return for a no contest plea

Dear Editor: ers to make this go away? One
What is going on with "Mount of the weird things about this is
Macclenny," aka the contami- the work stopped on the old golf
nated soil from the old Pineview course, yet the pile kept grow-
golf course that is piled up aside ing:
several residential areas. I've done a lot of soil remedia-
It's a shame that this is per- tion in my career, and I've never
mitted; there is seen it done this
no barrier way. I guess
under, it's all in
who


around
or over
this contami-
nated soil! There are
numerous run-off areas onto
other people's property, and on
windy days the dust is just un-
bearable.
I hope people don't start get-
ting sick from this material,
though it might take a few years
for the symptoms to appear. I
see children playing on it all the
time.
Will it take a class-action law-
suit from abutting property own-


you
know.
If any-
one has any in-
sight to this problem, please let
me know. I would hate to see
anyone get ill from this situa-
tion, and at that point I suppose
it would be too late.

Thiefstolefrom a hard worker
Dear Editor:
This letter is addressed to the thief who decided to steal what didn't
belong to him.
For many years, my Dad has worked hard to collect scrap metals,
aluminum cans, scrap wire and other materials. It gives him extra in-
come.
Last week while Dad was hospitalized and in his weakest hour, a
thief decided to cross the line and steal the large amount of scrap he
had spent months collecting. What took my Dad many hours of hard
work to accumulate, it took the thief only a few to steal.
Was it a drug addict needing cash for the next fix, or the alcoholic
needing the next drink? Or was it simply a thug who gets his kicks
from stealing. You may get away with it here, but you won't in the final
days. Judgement day is coming!
Like the Bible says, "Every tongue shall confess," and you're no
exception.
The next time you see my Dad, be man enough to look him in the
eye and thank him for what you took.

Digital age replaces

But what about the excitement


As I write this, I am sitting in
a hotel room in Naples, Florida
thinking about digital cameras.
I'm here to do teacher cadet
training. It'sis a
program I run at
the high school M Y S
that takes stu-
dents interested THE
in becoming
teachers and be- ROBERT
gins their train-
ing before they
enter college. I'm down here get-
ting the program started in three
more schools.
But that really has nothing to
do with my column. It's about
good intentions and how they
manage to get thwarted again
and again by real life.
Now that I've written that
sentence and taken a look at
it, I'm forced to think, "Hmm.
That's a pretty deep, philosophi-
cal thought for 7:00 am on a
Tuesday morning. It also doesn't
sound very funny."
I'll have to see what I can do
about that.
Anyway, digital cameras are
one of the few things in life that
actually help my good intentions
become reality.
Unlike most technology, I am
all for digital cameras because
they make life easier to handle.
Most technology claims to do

different set of issues and prob-
lems.
Not so, digital cameras. They

graphs so easy

card and keep in
TT R a handy, easy-
to-use format.
JERARD The other day
I was rummag-
ing through my
home office looking for some-
thing. If you saw my "home
office" you would laugh at the
notion that I could actually find
something in there. That's be-
cause it is our personal landfill.
Admit it, every home has a
personal landfill. Even those
perverse people whose houses
we visit and everything looks
perfect not a knick knack
out of place, must have places
like that. You know the places
I mean. Homes that don't re-
ally even look as if anyone lives
there; they resemble the model
homes that builders show off to
perspective buyers.
So, I was rummaging through
one of the layers of our personal
landfill the other day looking
for something that I never did
find and I came upon one of our
picture boxes. It's a cardboard
box completely full of pictures.


Library programs are passports


to cultural experiences for kids


THE BACK

PORCH
KELLEY LANNIGAN

The hardest thing was get-
ting the kids to stay on their side
of the boundary. The boundary
was a straight line of masking
tape laid on the floor to divide
the audience from the perform-
er. Sitting on the floor, the kids
really connected with the musi-
cian storyteller who played tra-
ditional instruments from differ-
ent African countries and shared
wonderful tales, often softly ac-
companied by that music.
Other times, the kids got to
stand up and rock out to the en-
ergetic rhythms of the Djembe.
It's hard for your feet to stay still
when these drums are played,
much less stay on your side of
the line.
I've dropped by the summer
reading programs at the Mac-
clenny Women's Club which are
sponsored by the Emily Taber
Library on many occasions over
the last two years, but this day's


program was exceptional.
Adjamu Mutima, a master sto-
ryteller, poet and musician, who
lives and works out of the Nep-
tune Beach area, brought a re-
markably cool cultural program
to share with Baker County kids.
Many parents attending were
equally smitten by the captivat-
ing performer as he strummed
the strings of a Kora. Both chil-
dren and parents attempted hand
gestures while singing the 'ch-
rus to Healing Hands, a song
Mr. Mutima wrote:
Hold out your. hands, child
Open up your heart, child
Watch the sparkling light,
As it dances on the water ...
I, perhaps more than anyone
present, was having a hard time
keeping my feet still, because in
a former life, I was a member
of a multi-cultural dance troupe
and often performed to music
from such exotic locals as Tur-
key, Morocco, Bulgaria and the
Berber regions of Africa.
In addition to dancing, I sat in
on drumming circles and played
a variety of percussion instru-
ments at other events such as art
and community festivals. Drum-

Thank goodness for libraries.
These repositories of knowledge
have become highly instrumen-
tal in providing hands-on learn-
ing programs about the broad
patchwork of cultural influences
that make up the human expe-
rience. And they do it without
charging the huge ticket prices
most contemporary entertain-
ment venues demand.
Many libraries today have
art galleries, host literary, the-
atre and dance performances for
adults and support a healthy dose
of programing for kids. Sadly, a
large percentage of the popula-
tion never avail themselves of
the resources and services our
libraries provide.
I once read that libraries
should be considered national
treasures. Where else can you
hear great stories, watch a dance
troupe from India, learn to quilt,
learn another language and lis-

Man suffers broken jaw from attackers


A 29-year-old Macclenny
man suffered a broken jaw af-
ter being hit by another man on
Grissholm Street June 17.
Deputy John Hardin was
called to Fraser Memorial's
emergency room and found
Jaleel Ruise of MLK Drive, who
said Alex Wilcox Jr., 22, of S.
1st St. attacked him. That was
about all Deputy Hardin could
understand due to the victim's
extremely swollen and bleeding
jaw.
When the deputy canvassed
the area, he made contact with a
witness on S. 9th St. who didn't
want to be identified or sign a
statement. The witness advised
Mr. Ruise and another man were
in a physical confrontation and
intoxicated. When that fight
ended, the witness said Mr. Wil-
cox struck Mr. Ruise in the jaw
from behind and knocked him
unconscious.
Mr. Ruise underwent surgery
in Jacksonville for a broken jaw
and the battery case is still under
investigation.
Another Macclenny man was
booked at county jail for domes-
tic violence after a fight with his
live-in girlfriend of six months
and her mother in Sanderson on
Jack Dowling Circle June 21.
Jason Craig Waters of Leon-
ard Norman Dr. was taken into
custody after Deputy Hardin
found the 31-year-old suspect
on the front porch just after 8:00
pm. When the deputy asked
what happened, Mr. Waters re-
sponded, "I guess I just flipped


figure into

Baker County deputies made
three felony drug arrests, all in-
volving prescription medication,
during a two-day period last
week.
The arrests, plus another fel-
ony, earlier last 'Week and tvy w
misdemeanors, were made fol-
lowiig traffic stops.
The morning of June 21, an
intoxicated patron at the CVS
Pharmacy in downtown Mac-
clenny was arrested when Dep-
uty William Hilliard later found
the incorrect medication in a pill
bottle inside her purse.
Brenda Kirkland, 41, of Mac-
clenny gave the officer permis-
sion to search both her vehicle in
the parking lot and the purse in-
side following the 10:00 am call
to the store.
Assistant store manager Mike
Rogers called police because
Ms. Kirkland appeared intoxi-
cated and said also that he saw
her exchange pills with another
patron. Deputy Hilliard said the
pill bottle contained Methadone
properly prescribed to Ms. Kirk-
land, but also three Hydrocodone
pills for which she did not have a
prescription.
*April Combs, 30, of Glen St.
Mary was booked at county jail
on a similar charge after the same
deputy found six Soma pills in a
plastic cigarette container inside
the Isuzu pickup in which she
was riding.
He stopped the vehicle at US
90 and Owens Acres Dr. the af-
ternoon of June 21 for having an
unreadable license plate. Deputy
Hilliard quizzed Ms. Combs fur-
ther because she appeared ner-
vous, and during the vehicle and
purse search also found a mari-
juana cigarette and a pipe com-
monly used for smoking crack.
In addition to the felony,
charge, Ms. Combs was also
booked for possession of drug
paraphernalia and misdemeanor
possession of marijuana.

pletive) out of me, so 1 punched
them."
In his report the deputy noted
the odor of alcohol on the sus-
pect, who said he was referring
to Nicole Kholbus, 23, and her
mother, Christina Fuller, 40.
Ms. Fuller said Mr. Waters
had been drinking all day and
that when she asked for him to
get an item out of the closet for
her, he "snapped" and began hit-
ting her in the face with a closed
fist.
When Ms. Kholbus tried to
intervene, Ms. Fuller said Mr.
Waters turned on his girlfriend,
hitting her with a closed fist, be-
fore jumping on top of Ms. Full-
er and hitting her once more.
Ms. Kholbus confirmed her
mother's version of events.
Mr. Waters was also bitten in
the leg by a dog during the alter-
cation, and the animal also inad-
vertently bit Ms. Kholbus.
After being medically cleared
by rescue, Mr. Waters was ar-
rested for domestic violence bat-
tery and photographs were taken
of Ms. Kholbus' injuries before
she was taken to Fraser Memo-
rial for treatment.
Ms. Fuller's injuries included
a black eye, two cuts to her leg
and a laceration on her finger.
In another domestic violence
case last week, Jason Lee Parish,
21, of N. Lowder St. was named
in a complaint made by his girl-
friend, Angela Pitts, 20, of Sand-
erson on June 19. Deputies were
dispatched to a disturbance at a

been written for Kerril Breaux,
18, three days earlier. Two other
pills in the bottle were higher
dosage.
Both Mir. Breaux and dri er
KristinaffAlleman, 23, were from
Thibodoux, La. She was arrested
for driving on-a suspended li-
cense.
Deputy Satterwhite said he
clocked the Ford at 93 mph and
observed it swerving in its lane
before stopping Ms. Alleman.
The evening of June 17,
Brittany Blodgett, 19, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for felony
possession after a county deputy
found a pill bottle with another
person's name on it.
Deputy John Harden said Ms.
Blodgett appeared nervous after
he pulled over her 2007 Hyundi
for failure to stop at the intersec-
tion of W. Minnesota and Lowder
in Macclenny about 10:00.
The driver directed the officer
to the pill bottle in the glove box,
and it contained 29 Hydrocodone
pills authorized for Lonnie Re-
wis, who she said was her uncle.
Ms. Blodgett gave several dif-
ferent versions of why she came
into possession of the pills.
Reginald McCray, 32, of
Sanderson was arrested the eve-
ning of June 19 for misdemeanor
marijuana possession after Inves-
tigator Scotty Rhoden found a
small baggie in his pants pocket.
. The investigator said he spot-
ted the suspect about 8:00 pm
near the Club 229, and knew Mr.
McCray was wanted on war-
rants.
A similar possession charge
was filed against Forest Klate
Jesseman, 22, of Macclenny, a
passenger in a vehicle stopped
by the Florida Highway Patrol
about 4:30 am on June 21.
Deputy Curtis Ruise arrived
as backup to the trooper, and said
he found a baggie with a small
amount of marijuana in the pas-
senger door as Mr. Jesseman ex-
ited the 1997 GMC truck on US
90 west in Macclenny.


home on Lyons Lane in Mac-
clenny where it was discovered
Mr. Parish had an outstanding
warrant in Baker County.
He was booked at the county
jail without incident and Ms.
Pitts was taken to the sheriff's
annex to meet a ride.
There Deputy Faith Mizell
received the domestic violence
complaint from Ms. Pitts, who
said her boyfriend, Mr. Parish,
grabbed her by the ankles and
attempted to drag her into the
living room. She also said Mr.
Parish hit her in the head and
that she was eight weeks preg-
nant.
Ms. Pitts was taken to Hub-
bard House in Jacksonville after
authorities determined she had
no place to go.
In other violent incidents this
past week:
Fredrick Williams, 40,
of Glen St. Mary said he was
jumped by two unidentified
black males and a juvenile black
male June 22 while walking on
Ruise Lane about midnight. Mr.
Williams said one of the males
came up and began hitting him,
which caused him to fall to the
ground where the three suspects
continued hitting and kicking
him.
Deputy Tony Norman noted


small cuts to Mr. Williams'
stomach and hands.
A battery complaint was
filed against a Northeast Florida
State Hospital patient by another
patient. A 47-year-old female
patient said a 30-year-old fellow
patient started verbal argument
with her June 19 before striking
her in the forehead with a closed
fist. She said a similar incident
occurred the previous morning
when she was struck in the eye
by Ms. Morris.
Kathy Lea Parish, 26, of
Lauramore Rd. in Macclenny
was arrested for aggravated bat-
tery after allegedly attempting
to run over her husband with his
truck on June 20. Christopher
Parish, 24, also of Macclenny,
told Deputy Mizell his wife be-
came upset after he refused to
take pain killers and went out-
side and sat on the tailgate of his
truck.
Ms. Parish continued the ar-
gument outside before driving
the truck fast in circles in the
driveway and throwing her hus-
band from the back of the truck,
he said. When his wife wouldn't
stop the vehicle, Mr. Parish said
he used a knife to cut a tire in
an attempt to disable the vehicle
and went inside.

rider is sought


A warrant was issued June 21 for a Baldwin man who fled a county
deputy who had stopped him that evening for illegally driving a Honda
ATV on a Macclenny street.
Deputy Curtis Ruise said he pulled over the driver identified as Er-
nest Tyrone Smith, 23, near the intersection of South Boulevard and
5th St. about 6:45. The man said he did not have a license, but gave the
officer his name then sped off eastbound on South Boulevard while
Deputy Ruise was running a computer check on his identity.
The deputy chased the speeding ATV east, then north on East Bou-
levard to US 90, where Mr. Smith veered east once again and, accord-
ing to the officer's report, sped down the center of the pavement and
running several vehicles off the road.
The ATV reached Trail Ridge where the driver abruptly turned onto
a tram road and jumped a deep ditch, jettisoning a rear seat and tire
guard. Deputy Ruise then lost sight of the vehicle and driver.
The computer check revealed Mr. Smith's license has been twice
suspended for failure to pay fines. The warrant also charges him with
high speed fleeing, reckless driving and resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
The afternoon of June 18, Mark McGlashan, 39, of White Springs,
Fla. was charged with driving on a license suspended three times for
failure to pay fines.
Deputy Chris Walker stopped the suspect on CR 229 north in Sand-
erson after noticing a broken tail light lens on his 1992 Toyota pick-
up.
Kenneth Barron, 18, of Macclenny was arrested the same after-
noon west of Sanderson on US 90 near the interstate after Deputy
Chris Walker learned he was wanted in Clay County for not having a
valid driver's license.
The officer stopped to question Mr. Barron, who had pulled to the
roadside with a disabled vehicle.

Little patch of heaven


is a dream come true for the Davises


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
"I look out my front door ev-
eryday and 1 can't believe what 1
see," said Faye Davis, speaking
of her .75-acre vegetable garden
'in Taylor. "To me, it's like living
in heaven."
The spiritual reference is ac-
curate for this gifted grower
,of vegetables and flowers who
believes God had a hand in the
events that led her family to their
country haven.
A native of Jacksonville who
lived in the city most of her life,
'Ms. Davis had relatives in Baker
County. Her grandmother Porti-
er, who also lived in Jacksonville,
'was a Garrett whose people lived
near the Garrett settlement off
north Lowder Street. Growing
up, Ms. Davis attended family
.reunions at Macedonia Church
and swam in the St. Mary's Riv-
er. But she learned the basics of
growing vegetables in grandma
,Portier's garden.
.She remembers, at age four,
being handed a basket and told
to help pick. She stood looking
down the seemingly never-end-
ing row and thinking, "How will
I ever get to the end?"
When she did, she had a bas-
ket full of bounty to bring back
to the house. It was like the pot
Sbf gold at the end of the rainbow.
She was hooked.
,: Married and living in Jack-
Ssonville, Ms. Davis gardened the
best she could on limited space.
'She started out with a 10 X 10-
-foot plot. Later she had a little
,more space to work with, up to
40 X 40.
"I used to sit and look at
,my little plot of vegetables and
dream of what it would be like to
-'have enough land to have a huge
:garden," said Ms. Davis. "To me
qit was just about the most won-
derful thing there could be."
, She finally got her wish.
"About four years ago, Ms. Davis
;and husband Bob began looking
'in Baker County for some land.
,They put a binder on a tract near
ithe future Cedar Creek devel-
:opment, but the owner couldn't
.get an egress into the area. Time
,passed and the problem wasn't
:being resolved. Then, out of
:he blue, the 10 acres on Turner
Cemetery Road came to their at-
tention and they snatched it up.
; That's how Spoil'm Farm was
,established.
S"About the name it's our
:hope that when someone vis-
its, they feel like they're being
;spoiled," said Ms. Davis.
SShe recalls being admonished
for going into the strawberry
patch in her grandmother's gar-
'den and established her own
,garden with the exact opposite
;thing in mind. She grows a very
irare white strawberry that tastes
'like pineapple, but wants her
grandchildren out there among
the plants because few kids to-
fday have the experience learning
-about a garden first hand.
,, "I've had a young woman ask
,ine if corn grows above or under
'the ground. It's amazing what
'people don't know today," she
Said.
As one approaches Spoil'm
,Farm, the dominant garden is
seen before the house. It's what
,folks see as they approach and

as they leave. Ms. Davis believes
the vegetable garden is as beau-
tiful as any flower garden and
designed it that way.
"It was never my idea to hide
my garden away behind my
house," she says. "I look out on
it each morning and think it's
the most beautiful thing in the


ern Magda squashes and the
comical looking Italian Zuccino
Rampicantes.
Long and skinny, Rampican-
tes will curl as they grow to an
average of 15 inches, sometimes

selves.

There are Ali Baba watermelons,

French Charentais cantelope and
Tigger fruits.
"The Tigger is spectacular to
look at, with its bright red and
yellow stripes," said Ms. Davis.
"The meat of the melon is actu-
ally white and when you cut it
open oh, the fragrance!"
Ms. Davis says heirloom veg-
etables are hardier than more
common varieties and have some
interesting characteristics. Many
of them, like some of the tomato
varieties, produce "volunteers"
that reseed themselves. As they
come back year after year they
adapt more and more to the soil
and climate.
Flowers are important in the
garden, too. A "cutting row" is
brimming with zinnias in every
color. Passion Flower vines are
interspersed at intervals along
the row of Health Kick tomatoes


and Swallow Tail
and Fritillary butterflies flit
everywhere.
"We've planted with attract-
ing butterflies in mind. The
Passion Flower vine tendrils are
actually where the Swallow Tail
lays its eggs," said Ms. Davis.
Most days, Ms. Davis is in the
garden by 6:00 am. Her husband
wanders out at a more civilized
hour, maybe around 11:00. The
garden is irrigated with a 4-inch
well on a timer so there isn't
much worry about watering.
When grandchildren visit, they
typically follow their grandpar-
ents into the garden or ride the
family four-wheeler through the
trails on the rest of the property.
Ms. Davis says access to the
fresh, heirloom vegetables has
transformed any picky eating
habits among her children and
grandchildren.
"I have one four-year-old
grandchild who picks tomatoes
off the vine or corn off the stalk
and eats it raw," she says. "And a
son that hates to eat out at buf-
fets because he says that after
Momma's vegetables nothing
else is much good."
The Davises feel spoiled by
the beauty and bounty of their
special garden. And they've no-
ticed an interesting phenomena.
If they try to sell their vegeta-
bles, the garden doesn't produce
very much. If they freely give
produce away, the garden virtu-
ally overflows with food.
"Sometimes, I can't believe
how the Lord has blessed us,"
said Ms. Davis.


world. I feel so lucky to have this
view."
Although a vegetable garden
is not in itself unusual, the gar-
den at Spoil'um Farm is differ-
ent in what it yields.
Ms. Davis began research-
ing vegetable seed before she
started her garden 'and learned
about heirloom varieties. They
cost more and are sometimes
harder to find, but the result is
a world away in taste and nutri-
ents from what's typically found
on the supermarket produce
aisle. Many of the seeds used by
Ms. Davis come from the Baker
Creek Heirloom Seed Company
in Missouri.
Out in the vegetable rows,
each 100 feet long, the squash is
the belle of the ball. Five vari-
eties are in bloom and produc-
ing, among them, Middle East-


reached 25 inches in length,"
said Mr. Davis.
It's the sweet little Lemon
Squashes that are significant this
year. Seeds were not available
last season and after repeated
phone calls hoping to get some,
the owner of Baker Creek sent
Ms. Davis some from plants in
his personal garden.
She saved the seed from her
Lemon Squash and this year got
a call from the seed company
wanting to know if she had any
she would sell.
"They actually bought them
from me because none were
available anywhere else," says
Ms. Davis with a laugh.
Lots of varieties of beans and
peas thrive at Spoil'm Farm.
The Davis' freezers are stuffed
to the brim with bags of Zippers,
Pink Eyes, Christmas Limas,

Wallen, 58, were at the state hos-
pital to visit the wife's brother,
who is a patient. She apparently
became upset when the brother
refused to visit with her, and dur-
ing an ensuing fracas was asked
to leave the premises by hospital
staff, including a security offi-
cer.
Deputy Bill Starling was
called to NEFSH after Mrs. Wal-
len initially agreed to leave the
visiting quarters, but returned
and refused to do so. The deputy
advised her she would be ar-
rested if she didn't comply, and
she screamed obscenities at him,
according to Deputy Starling's
report.
She then allegedly struck the
officer in the chest as he attempt-
ed to handcuff her, and Mr. Wal-
len shoved Deputy Starling from
behind. During the second strug-
gle, both the officer and Mr. Wal-
len fell onto a nearby bed and the
husband struck Deputy Starling
in the throat with his elbow.
With the help of Officer Les-
ter Clark of the security staff, the
couple was subdued and taken to
jail. Deputy Starling noted that
he found a pocket knife in Mr.
Wallen's right pants pocket, the
same area he appeared to reach
for during their struggle.
He was charged with battery
on an officer; the wife with re-
sisting with violence. Both are
third-degree felonies.

Weekly crafts help keep seniors'


minds, bodies healthy and active


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Every Thursday morning, se-
niors at the Baker County Coun-
cil on Aging are seated at tables
and busy as bees as they engage
in a variety of craft projects.
Activities director Darlene
Rockefeller started the weekly
craft session recently and par-
ticipants are utilizing the time
for personal enrichment as well
as getting a jump on produc-
ing :items for their up-coming
Christmas Bizarre.
On this morning Clarancy
Jackson has created two framed
"paintings." She did it by match-
ing two pieces of wallpaper with
complimentary designs with two
gold frames. From a distance,
they look like the real thing and
will add a nice touch to the room
where they are hung.
David Kurtz and Shirley
Mackley are busy collaborating
on the decoupage details they
are adding to a variety of items

file boxes and clock faces. Piles
of trim, some in the shape of
rick-rack and sheets of colored
papers, are stacked up in the
middle of the table along with
glue bottles, scissors and brush-
es. Hands fly and conversation
is lively. Ms. Mackley suggests a
border for the box top Mr. Kurtz
is finishing. He smooths the bor-
der detail down with a sponge
tipped brush and holds it up for
inspection.
"There," says Ms. Mackley.
"Doesn't that look good?"
Lois Terrell is busy with sev-
eral boxes using the rick-rack
paper trims.
"I 'worked at the Westrick
Paper Factory in Jacksonville
running an envelope folding ma-
chine for 24 years," she says. "I
have to be busy and.doing some-
thing with my hands all the time.
Drives my children crazy."
At another table, Helen Lind-
ley is working on squares that
will soon-.be made-intoa- full
quilt. Each is decorated with a


design called Dresden Plate. She
has collected scraps for years
from family clothing. She even
has scraps of cloth from dresses
worn by her great aunt in the late
1940s.
"There are a bunch of talent-
ed folks down here at the COA,"
said Mary Walker, who heads
up the Neighborly Seniors group
and is at the center nearly every-
day. "You should see the humon-
gous American flag that Mr.
Kurtz crocheted. You wouldn't
believe it."
According to Ms. Rockefeller,
the greatest satisfaction in par-
ticipating in the craft sessions
comes from feeling productive.
The mental stimulation from
such a creative outlet is an added
benefit as well.
As Ms. Mackley put it: "The
body might be a little slow, but
my mind is perfectly fine!"
-"The fact that they love the
social aspect is obvious, too,"
Ms. Rockefeller added.


Vehicles stolen, i burnedin Clay


Three vehicles took a beat-
ing one even set on fire in
grand theft auto cases reported
this past week.
Wendy Daniels of Macclen-
ny was contacted by the Clay
County Sheriff's Office June
22 that her 2003 Toyota Corolla
had been found abandoned and
set ablaze. The next day she re-
ported the car stolen to the Bak-
er County Sheriff's Office. She
told the responding deputy she
last saw her vehicle at 6:15 pm
the previous evening.
Kenneth Barron's 1994 Ford
Mustang was also found aban-
doned June 21 in the Fraser Me-
morial Hospital parking lot.
The Macclenny resident re-
ported the car stolen from his


carport on Deerwood Circle
sometime overnight. About six
hours later, the vehicle was dis-
covered at the hospital with four
flat tires. Mr. Barronadvised
that someone had put roofing
nails on the right-of-way at the
rear of his property several days
before and its likely the thief
parked the vehicle after the tires
lost too much air.


A third vehicle was reported
stolen by John Pearce of Sand-
erson. It had belonged to the
victim's mother and was sitting
in the yard for several years
with no current registration. The
1999 Cadillac Deville was taken
sometime in the last few weeks
from his residence on Thannie
Harvey Rd., Mr. Pearce said.


is charged

A Macclenny woman landed in
county jail for grand theft June
18 after failing a voice-stress
test when investigators asked her
about a jewelry theft.
Peggy M. Guiden, 22, of East
Barber Rd. admitted to being at
the home of victim Doris Griffis,
but denied taking her jewelry.
Ms. Griffis reported the theft
of about $3000 in jewelry after
returning from a week's vaca-
tion in St. Augustine, during
which time her son was house-
sitting. Her son told her he had
several people over to the Pine
Avenue residence and named
Ms. Guiden as a possible sus-
pect.
When investigators spoke
with the accused at the sheriff's
annex, she said she hadn't been
wearing any jewelry 6ther than
earrings and a silver necklace.
However, witnesses at.Rhoden's
Trailer Park said a few days ear-
lier, Ms. Guiden had been. wear-
ing a pearl ring, similar to one of
the items reported stolen.
Upon discovering the con-
flicting statements, Investigator
David Morgan requested Ms.
Guiden be interviewed with a
voice-stress analyzer. "The sus-
pect indicated deception when
asked if she took the jewelry and
if she knew who took the jew-
elry," states the investigator's
report.
The suspect was arrested, but
would not disclose what hap-
pened to the pearl ring or any of
the other jewelry.
A number of other items were
reported stolen the past week,
including six guns in two sepa-
rate thefts.
The first firearm theft oc-
curred sometime between June
3-5 but wasn't reported by vic-
tim Mary Burnsed until June 19
because she needed to obtain in-
formation for a report from Du-


with stealing1

val Pawn in Macclenny.
Ms. Burnsed said hei .38-cal-
iber handgun worth $325 went
missing sometime after June 3,
the last time she saw the weapon.
She said several relatives were
the only people at the residence
and all knew where she kept her
gun hidden.
The case is still under inves-
tigation.
A second theft involved five
missing firearms, including two
shotguns, two rifles and a hand-
gun, from the Glen St. Mary
home of Gerald Rhoden.
Mr. Rhoden reported the theft
from his Pine Loop residence
June 22 and said it took place
sometime between the previ-
ous evening and that afternoon
while he and his wife were at
another home.
When the couple arrived
about 3:30 pm they noticed their
back door had been forced open
and the guns were missing. In-
vestigators processed the scene
for evidence and a canvass of the
neighborhood was conducted to
no avail.
That case is still under inves-
tigation as well.
In other thefts this past week:
Mario Melton reported an
MP3 player stolen from his car
on W. South Blvd. June 19 about
2:15 am. Mr,'Melton said he-
locked his car doors but left his
windows cracked three or four
inches after finishing listening
to music, turning off the MP3
player and going inside. The vic-
tim gave the names of two pos-
sible suspects that were nearby
when the $145 device went miss-
ing.
Joshua Foremann reported
his bike stolen from the back of
Subway on South 6th St. where
he works. Mr. Foreman said he
rode the $150 bike to work June
17 and it was gone when he went

A canvass of the area turned
up a tip from a resident that
three juveniles were seen rid-
ing bikes through a trail that
leads to Anna Bell Place. When
Deputy John Hardin located the
three juveniles he also noticed
only two bikes in plain view. All
three boys, however, said they'd
ridden through the trail on their
bikes. One of the juveniles, a 15-
year-old from Macclenny, even-
tually admitted to taking the
bike and returned it from behind
the house on Anna Bell Place.
Charges of petty theft were filed
with the state attorney's Office.
Jason Johnson reported the
theft of two. chain saws valued at
more than $2500 from the back
of his truck while parked at his
residence on Baxter Grade Rd.

register at The Dollar Tree on
South 6th St. where she works.
She said the theft occurred be-
tween 6:30 pm-9:30 pm June 19.

Officer Kim Teston found him
unresponsive about 4:00 am.
Rescue workers were sum-
moned to the jail and shortly af-
ter pronounced him dead.
Ms. Thornton's lawsuit faults
the department for failure to do
a drug analysis before locking
up the inmate, for putting him in
non-visible isolation and failure
to initiate well-being checks ev-
ery 15 minutes.
These and other factors "re-
sulted in deliberate indifference
to Mr. Carroll's serious medical
needs," the suit alleges.
The pleading notes that a
medical examiner in Gainesville
ruled Mr. Carroll died of "mul-
tiple drug ingestion" and names
five specific substances found
in his body, including Xaiax
which he admitted to officers he
had taken.
Sheriff Joey Dobson, a co-de-
fendant along with Baker County,
said he was aware a lawsuit was
in the works when Clive Morgan
of Jacksonville, the plaintiff's
attorney, gave notice as required
about six months ago.


"We knew about it, and ex-
pected it but it wouldn't be wise
for me to make any specific
comment on it now," remarked
the sheriff late Tuesday.
He indicated the department's
insurance carrier will assign
counsel to defend the suit.

Preventive screenings alert clients to warningsigns...
LifeLine Screening was in Macclenny June 24 conducting preventive health screenings targeted toward identifying some of the
major conditions that often precede strokes. Screenings took place all day at the Woman's Club. Afour-test package was offered
to detect plaque buildup in carotid arteries, irregular heartbeat, existence of aneurysm and peripheral arterial disease. Other
screens were available also. Results are then forwarded to a client's primary care physician within three weeks. Clients also re-
ceived health-related literature on the benefits of such subjects as weight loss, good diet, physical activity and diabetes control.

This installment of Time Out(doors) is inspired by a fishing trip that, as these first words were
written, hasn't even happened yet. Right now it's 4:15 am on Thursday, June 12. I've been awake
since the late two o'clock. I really don't believe that the anticipation of this weekend's offshore
jaunt in quest of king mackerel is keeping me awake. I think it has more to do with the fact that
LI'll soon be closer to 60 than I am to 55 years old. It's not that I lay there worrying about getting
older; I rarely think about that. I'm told that it's normal for sleep patterns to change as years go by.
It wasn't my darling companion and cherished bride of 35 honeymoons. Other than a brief somnambulistic dissertation on the price
of gas and a five minute snore jag, she's been relatively quiet tonight.
This is happening more often lately. I'll wake up after only a few hours of sleep and the proverbial snowball begins its augmentative
roll downhill. The more vexed I become about being awake and the harder I try to get back to sleep, the less likely I am to return to
slumber. It usually becomes'the classic vicious cycle.
But tonight it's different. The whole time I've been awake, I've been filled with warm and fuzzy feelings about the men I'll be
fishing with this weekend and all of the people that have come into my life via my outdoor pursuits. So I decided to get up and write
about it. It occurs to me that the bonds we form with fel- low sportsmen are unique. They're not necessarily stronger than
other bonds, though often they are. Shared memories are always fond. even
the memories of hardships endured together.
Sometimes our lives go in different directions and
before we know it, it's been years since we shared fel-i
lowship. But when that bond is real and circumstance, or
a phone call, brings us'back together, we pick right back
up as if those years were only days. The jerks, jacklegs
and other incompatible come and go. Our true brothers %
make a permanent place for themselves in our lives.
The fishing trip is now a fond memory. It has taken
its place in the archives of recollections of the adven-
tures and misadventures that I've shared with the peo-
ple that occupied my thoughts on that sleepless night.
There were six of us:
Al Romeu owns the boat. Al loves to touch a trigger
or set a hook more than anyone else I know. Most of my w ti P i.)Ai, Dan, James, Joey, Neil and Matt
outdoor exploits over the last twenty years have involved AI
in one way or another. We've watched each other's children grow into adulthood. We've
shared all of our personal triumphs and tragedies.
Matt Moore of Jacksonville and Neil Cooper of Jacksonville Beach are my and Al's sons-in-law, respectively. Ironically (or provi-
dentially?) my daughter Amanda and Al's daughter Christina, along with Matt and Neil, are expecting our first grandsons the first week
in July.
James Haley of Canadian, Texas was the guest of honor. He is about to begin his senior year at the United States Naval Academy.
He can already fly several types of naval aircraft and his goal is to be a fighter pilot and to apply to be a Blue Angel. James' parents,
Jim and Lauren Haley, own a ranch near Canadian. His uncle and aunt, Jeff and Molly Haley, own one near Lefors, Texas. Most of my
spring turkey hunting in Texas is done on these two ranches. Given the overwhelming hospitality shown to me when I'm out there, it
was only natural to want to facilitate a special fishing trip for James when I learned that he would be at NAS Jax this summer.
Dan Thompson of Jacksonville rounded out our group. Dan graciously agreed to come along to drive the boat. Had it not been for
his skillful accomplishment of that task, we would have lost several of the fish we caught that day.
We shoved off from Al's dock at 8:00 am and,'once outside of the Mayport jetties, headed north. We started trolling about five miles
from the jetties and a mile offshore from Nassau Sound. The first bite came at a little after 9:00. James took the rod and, after a five-
minute fight, the suspected kingfish got off. The next bite came within minutes. James took this one as well, and in short order had a
10-12 pound barracuda alongside the boat for Neil to gaff. It wasn't a king mackerel, but we had broken the ice.
At 9:40 the drag on another reel sang out and it was Matt's turn. The 15-minute battle was highlighted by several long runs by the
fish during which Matt could only hold on. When he finally got the fish in, it turned out to be another barracuda, this one in the 20-25
pound range.
Less than ten minutes after Matt's 'cuda was photographed and released, another fish got on. I took this one.After less than a min-
ute he seemed to Just stop fighting. At first I thought that he had gotten off, but I was Still reeling in something with mass and weight. It
just wasn't fighting. When I got it to the boat, a 25-pound kingfish with no tail was gaffed and brought aboard. A barracuda had bitten
its tail off and took less than an inch of meat with the tail. That made our first kingfish of the day the easiest to bring in.
We moved further offshore to an area called Nassau Bottom and soon had another good bite. It took less than ten minutes for
James to bring in the second king of the day. This one was about the same size as the first, but it was intact.
James, Neil and Matt were given the rotation for the rest of the day. Dan drove the boat, Al coached and I documented with camera
and tape recorder. A couple more barracuda had been caught when Matt took a bite at 10:50. This was a very good fish. It made runs
that took almost all of the line from the reel. It made a few. impressive jumps. After an exhausting 25-minute fight, Neil gaffed a 35-
pound king that put Matt firmly atop the leader board.
He was to hold that honor for over two hours and when he lost it. It was given up in a spectacular manner. At 1:15, almost simul-
taneously, both rigs being trolled on downriggers,got fish on. James and Neil took the r.:d,- Aer a surprsingly briefi4minute fight,
James had a huge wahoo alongside the boat. Al gaffed him and lugged him aboard. He measured 62 inches in length with a 22-inch
girth. A wahoo with those numbers weighs 60 pounds or more. Unfortunately, after James' wahoo had been put in the well and 15
more minutes of intense battle, Neil's fish got off. It had to be another wahoo, probably bigger than James'. The photo above is of
James struggling to display his trophy and Neil fighting his fish.
We celebrated and fished the rest of the day. When we called it a day, everyone that had fished had caught at least one kingfish
over 25 pounds. We had long lost count of the barracuda. Our.guest of honor had a trophy wahoo.
And some of the bonds that I had been dwelling on that sleepless night had been reaffirmed, and for some of our group, new bonds
had been created.
It just doesn't get any better than that.
