With completion of the new
county jail and sheriff's office
complex less than a year away,
some may be wondering what's
going to happen to the exist-
ing facility next to the Baker
County courthouse?
County officials have asked
themselves that question, and
the answer likely involves a
bulldozer; it's just unclear when
that may happen.
County Manager Joe Cone
said eventually the plan is to
eventually raze the building -
along with the existing county
administration buildings next,
door to make room for
parking at a future judicial
complex.
"That's the long-range plan,
but in the short term we haven't
had any discussions on what
will happen when the sheriff's
office moves out," he said.
Demolition is essentially the
only option.
"The offices are okay, but
it's not a functional building
for anything other than a jail,"
Mr. Cone said.
Much of the sheriff's office
furniture and office equipment
will be moved to the new facil-
ity off CR 228 (6th.Street)just,
north of Macclenny. However,
there may be some other items
of value left for the county.
Mr. Cone said he hopes to
work out a deal with the sher-
iff's office to reuse a few sur-
veillance cameras from the jail
at the animal shelter.
There have been instances

Two local women accused of torturing a
seven-year-old boy in a trailer east of Mac-
clenny for about a year pleaded guilty to
child abuse and neglect charges September
15 and were sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier also sen-
tenced Jamie Lynn Martin, 27, and Suzette
Stevenson, 46, of the Trailridge trailer park
to another five years on an unrelated fraud
case.. That sentence is set to run consecutive-
ly with the 15-year term.
Had the cases gone to trial, assistant state
attorney Ralph Yazdiya said he was prepared
to prove the abuse occurred from August
2006 through November 2007, when the sus-
pects were arrested after the boy was found
begging for food in Central Florida.
Mr. Yazdiya said during that time the boy
had been suspended on a wall by his wrists
in the trailer for long periods using nails and
shoe laces. He also said the boy had been
beaten, starved, his bones broken, and forced


to drink shampoo as a punishment. Osceola County lea

'God forbid' terror drill at BCHS


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Baker County High School was the stage for a carefully orches-
trated school shooting exercise September 13 one that officials
hope never actually happens.
It was designed to test the response from law enforcement, school
faculty, the fire department and rescue, should students or others ever
. pen fire during the school day.
The mock scenario began when two teenagers, armed with an as-
sault rifle and pistols, emerged from the main office and fired on the
school's student resource officer and students from the courtyard op-
posite the media center and cafeteria.
The response included patrol deputies, a special response team that
was called in after one of the gunmen took hostages in the cafeteria,
and medical personnel who treated the wounded.
"You can talk about it all day long, but being there and doing it is
a very different level of preparedness and awareness," Superintendent
Paula Barton said shortly before the drill began. "It's as close to the
real thing without it actually happening, God forbid."
The exercise was managed by Emergency Operations Center Di-


rector Adam Faircloth with assistance from a division of URS,' Inc.
that offers emergency preparedness 'planning services to communi-
ties across the country. It was funded through grants from the US
Department of Homeland Security.
Saturday afternoon's event was a "full-scale" exercise involving
all functions of emergency response from management to dispatch to
everything in between.
Mr. Faircloth explained it was the most comprehensive exercise
available. Others can involve only management'(department heads) or
just a specific department. For instance, Mr. Faircloth said the health
department had previously staged a vaccine distribution event.
Another full-scale exercise is planned for September 20 at the high
school as an opportunity for first responders on duty last weekend to
participate.
"The script for our actors will change a little bit from one week-'
end to the next," said Mr. Faircloth. "For anybody that may partici-
pate both weekends, like SRT (Special Response Team) folks, even
though the event is similar, it's not identical."

United Christian Academy forms prayer circle at courthouse to recall 9/11...
Last Thursday marked the seventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and Pentagon in Washington. Students and teachers from
United Christian Academy in Macclenny formed a prayer circle in front of the Baker County courthouse to remember the event. The group walked to the courthouse on US
90from the intersection at South 6th that morning, many carrying flags and posters asking for prayers and remembrance. Others paid homage to America's most trying day
in modern times with silent reflection, and at Northeast Florida Telephone Company in Macclenny, an observance was held outside the main office.

ride draws


180 bikers
BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The 5th annual Baker Fam-
ily YMCA-sponsored Swamp-
man Bicycle Ride took place
September 14.
Riders started assembling
and gearing up at 6:00 am at the
starting point at Baker County
High School. At 7:30 am, after
a prayer for a safe, successful
ride by Baker County Sheriff's
Office chaplain Mitch Rhoden,
180 riders took off, pedaling
through early morning fog.
Proceeds from registration
fees for the ide go toward the
YMCA's annual fund-raising
campaign and benefit such pro-
grams as YMCA Strong Kids.
The event this year garnered
about $4000.
A group of Baker County
cyclists who frequently rode
together organized the first
Swampman ride in 2004. Sixty
cyclists participated in that ini-
tial event.
"It's grown each year since
then," said Chris Staggers, one
of the organizers. "The second

180, the next 300."
The 2008 ride would probably haye seen its reg-
istration grow past 300, but another event scheduled
the same weekend drew away some participants.
Local cyclists and teams from all over Florida
completed their choice of four different routes of
15, 33, 47, 70 and 100 mile distances.
Just prior to the event in 2004, according to Mr.
Staggers, the Division of Forestry secured a grant
which allowed it to donate 10 bicycles to the Baker
YMCA to help promote interest in riding. They
also sponsored a bike riding event, the Time Trials,
in the Osceola Forest. Those bike routes took rid-
ers through swampy areas and that's how the cur-
rent Swampman ride got its name.
"Because of the resources it takes to put on a
ride such as this, we couldn't pull it off without
community support and folks like Chris," said Jim
Bouldin, Baker YMCA director, "All the support
and donated services allow the cyclists to partici-
pate at minimal personal expense."
Those services include traffic control by the
sheriff's department for the entire 100-mile ride.
There is also major participation by some bicycle
stores such as Open Road and American in Jack-
sonville.
S"The folks from the bike shops will come out
and monitor the rides. They pump up tires and re-
pair the bikes should they break down," said Mr.
Staggers.
There are four rest stops along the routes so that
riders can catch their breath and get hydrated if
necessary, important last weekend when late morn-
ing temperatures were in the high 80s.
Mr. Staggers always takes a passenger along on
his rides. Popeye, a black and white Boston Terrier,
happily rides in a box strapped onto the back of his
master's bike.
According to Mr. Staggers, the Swampman Bike
Ride is considered by some to be the best-kept se-
cret in North Florida, at least among biking enthu-

The cars, traffic and potholes so prevalent on otl
routes aren't much of an issue in this area. It's pr

clists use the event to train for the MS 150 Ri
later.

Daytona Beach and back. Riders usually take t

In return for the cameras, the

defendant's alco-
hol level exceeded

In accordance
with Circuit Judge Mark Mose-
ley's order, Mr. Baker is prohib-
ited from drinking or possessing
alcohol or entering a business
that primarily serves alcohol
during his probation. i
Other conditions placed oh his
probation included random drug
and alcohol screenings, suspen-
sion of his driver's license for
three years, completion of DUI
school, 250 hours of community
service and a letter of apology to


the victim.
Judge,Moseley warned Mr.
Baker that if he violates any pro-
vision of the probation, he could
face between two and five years
in prison.
And although the judge ap-
proved the plea agreement, he
called the
sentence an
injustice.
"I hope
you appreci-
ate that the

Moseley told
"That can't be

is."
Shortly be-
fore the plea

was approved,
the court's Victim Advocate
Ann Haynes read a statement
from Ms. Michaud, who was too
emotional to deliver it herself.
The statement spoke of all the
things she could no longer do -
work, dance, swim and how
degrading it felt not to be able to
feed herself.
"It really doesn't matter what
happens to Mr. Baker," she said.
"My sentence started the day of
the accident."


'God forbid' drill at BCHS...

(from page 1)
Following the full-scale exercises, local officials will be receiving
an evaluation report from URS reviewing the response. The report
will be used to enhance the local government's ability to deal with
emergency situations and will be incorporated into five-year emer-
gency response plans.
"We can identify areas that our performance is high, or if there's
any areas that we see where there may be a specialized piece of equip-
ment that would've been helpful, we can pursue grants for that," said
Mr. Faircloth.
More than 50 people in all took part in the drill that cost roughly
$20,000, including personnel from the school district, city and county
fire departments, sheriff's office, EMS, dispatch and the health de-
partment. Child participants playing the part of victims were recruit-
ed from youth groups.
"This gave us the opportunity to tie everyone in and do it in an
environment that's already there," Mr. Faircloth said.
It took more than three months and a half-dozen meetings among
local officials and URS employees to plan the exercise.

Shameless NFL promos, other


pet peeve events' on television


This column is about stuff on television that gets
on my nerves. Usually, I don't use this space to rant
and rave, but this is an exception. So, here are a few
things that get my goat.
SI am a big football fan. I watch the Jaguars
every weekend and at least two or three other pro
games if'I can find the time. For some reason, com-
mentators are obsessed with saying NFL doing
so 20 or 30 times a game.
"He's one of the best line-
backers in the National Football M Y S]
League."
S "That's the way it's done in the -
NFL." IV.THEM
"You won't find another quar- *D
terback in the NFL who can throw ROBERT


the ball like Tom Brady."
"In the NFL ..."
Why do they think they have to do that? Is there
another professional football league that I'm miss-
ing? There hasn't been another professional league
to challenge the NFL since 1970 when the AFL
and NFL merged.
Next time you watch the Jaguars, Colts or any
pro team, amuse yourself by counting the number
of times they say NFL. You have my permission to
stop after 20.
They also call the-New York Giants the world
champions. The Super Bowl winners might be na-
tional champions, but when the game is only played
in the USA it's difficult to be a world champion.
SI firmly believe the word "event" should be
banned from use in television commercials. The
Olympics is an event. The Oscars is an event.
A mattress sale is not an event.
"The Lexus sales event is running through Sep-
tember..." So? What are they going to do, make
one of their cars jump the Grand Canyon? That's
an event I'd like to see.
So many things claim to be an event I'm not sure
which is and which isn't. I don't know how the new
program The Fringe can claim to be the televi-
sion event of the fall when the last season of ER is
claiming the same thing.
"'The McRib is back and it is a limited time event
at McDonalds." What kind of event might that be?
The "unidentifiable processed meat" event?
The Video Music Awards also announced that
Brittany Spears' return would be an event. Would
that be the "former big music star turned episode of
Jerry Springer" event?


I

I


Speaking of Brittany, our national obsession
with celebrity also irks me. Andy Warhol claimed
that eventually everyone would have 15 minutes of
fame. But some people seem to be masters ofturn-
ing their 15 minutes of fame into careers.
Look at the contestants on Dancing with the
Stars. What makes these people stars? I haven't
heard of half of them, including Kim Kardashian.
What is Kim Kardashian's
claim to fame? I believe she was
tE OF a friend of Paris Hilton and that
alone won her a reality television
ATT R show, Keeping up with the Kar-
LATTER 1 Jdashians. Does being someone's
A friend constitute star power?.
tGERA1D How about Jeffery Ross? A
Star? Or Cody Linley and Rocco
Dispirito? Anybody? They are all
stars on Dancing with the Stars.
Reality television shows seem to be turning out
a lot of these "celebrities." Some seem to move
from one reality show to another. I noticed that the
new reality show on Bravo Win a Date with my
Ex (yes, that's really the name), starred two con-
testants from Big Brother or some similar reality
program.
I guess being a "celebrity" or at least related to a
celebrity gives one carte blanche to be weird. Mat-
thew McConaughy's brother named-his son wait
now, this is worth it Miller Lite McConaughy.
I have to think naming your child after a watery,
tasteless beer constitutes child abuse. Now, if he
were Guinness Stout McConaughy or Heineken
McConaughy or even Michelob McConaughy, that
would be different.
You know who would scare the wits out of me
if I were a little kid? The Burger King. In fact, if I
saw the Burger King staring in my bedroom win-
dow I'd scream like a girl.
You know who I mean. In those Burger King
commercials he's seen running for touchdowns and
stuff. He's got a big plastic head with a gigantic
psychotic grin. He carries a large scepter that looks
a lot like-a medieval mace.
One of my nieces used to run and hide when
She saw people in costumes like the Easter Bunny
and Mickey Mouse. I guarantee you that we'd be
neck-and-neck if the Burger King was in the neigh-
borhood.
Thought you'd like to know.

Letters to the Editor..,


RoyalMagesticsnot aimed

towardat-risk as insinuated
Dear Editor:
I would like to clarify the purpose of a local young men's or-
ganization known as The Royal Majestics, of whom I am one of
the leaders. This group's photo was published on page one of your
newspaper last week in conjunction with an article regarding an
outreach ministry program which does work with at-risk youth in
the community.
The Royal Majestics is not a group that targets or'labels any of
its participants to be at-risk. We are not a satellite outreach program
for.any other organization. We are a Baker County-based organiza-
tion dedicated to transforming our next generation of youths. We
believe this concept is a yital part in making positive differences in
our community's future.:
Our purpose is to create an environment by which our yoiithcan
develop traits and characteristics necessary to do well in life, which
is why we chose for our motto: "We are shining through." We are
teaching our young men that regardless of the adversities faced in
life, they can succeed and shine through any circumstance.
Our mission is to promote teamwork, discipline, self-esteem and
responsibility through spiritual living, positive.thinking, educa-
tion and community service. On a recent trip to the Clara White
Mission; our youth helped serve nearly 400 breakfast meals to the
homeless.
Royal Majestic's founders Calvin Hawkins and myself are par-
ticularly proud that the organization can provide this opportunity
for our men of tomorrow.

Joel Addintons column

S '. "R '. *
ill-disguised Obamaplug
Dear Editor:
You really should consider taking away young Joel's Blackberry
until he learns to be objective and responsible. Last week's op-ed
was fraught with innuendo, fallacy and half-truths, so it's time for
another trip to the woodshed.
Young Joel (an Obama cheerleader) attempts to defend his candi-
date's wasteful spending by stating earmarks or pork barrel spending
is "not such a bad thing." Obama attached $98 million in earmarks
just last year.
SJoel misleads by stating John McCain didn't have any earmarks
last \ear. inferring that McCain has in the past attached wasteful
spending just like Obama. but not last Near. Either Joel hasn't done
his homework or he's relying too much on his sources from the Mi-
ami Herald and the Daily Kos. .
Another half-truth was his not-so-covert attempt to smear.Gov.
Sarah Palin by stating she supported Alaska's infamous "bridge to
nowhere." The truth is that prudence and good judgement (qualities
Obama lacks) won out and she said "thanks but no thanks."
Joel made one final attempt to defend his candidate's tax and
spend policies. He states, "If your congressman isn't doing it (mean-
ing adding pork-barrel spending), your district will be left out of
what amounts to free money." That was spoken like a quintessential
Democrat.
Maybe he can enlighten his readers as to where all that free mon-
ey is coming from, and if there's so much of it why am I still having
to pay taxes?

Arrest forprowling at

r r

scene of 2005 shooting

A Port St. Lucie man was arrested north of Macclenny on burglary,
prowling and trespassing charges after a couple saw a suspicious per-
son on their property at 13011 N. Sawmill Rd. and called police in the
early morning hours of September 9.
The residence is the scene of a December 29, 2005 armed home
invasion during which Mr. Thrift shot and killed one of the two sus-
pects, who were brothers. The other was sentenced to prison.
Jody Paul Thrift reported seeing a white male standing in front of
his carport staring at his house. He said the man walked toward his
vehicles when he lost sight of the, suspect.
His wife Sabrina was the first to be alerted to the man's presence
when a security sensor went off and she looked out the window to
see the white male coming towards the residence along the property's
fence line.
K-9 units were dispatched to the area to canvass for the suspect.
The scent led back to a bicycle that responding Deputy Curtis Ruise
discovered when he arrived about 2:30 am.
However, after relieving the night shift deputies, Deputy William
Starling joined the search and positioned his vehicle out-of-sight to
observe the abandoned bicycle.
It wasn't long before the deputy saw the suspect, later identified as
35-year-old Adrian Willis, exit the wooded area on the west side of
SR 121 and retrieve the bike, which was concealed in tall grass on the
east side of the road next to fence surrounding the Thrift's property.
The suspect headed south toward the deputy when the officer
pulled out onto the right-of-way, exited his vehicle and ordered Mr.
Willis to stop.
When the man attempted to speed up and ride past, Deputy Star-
ling pushed the suspect, causing him to fall on the ground where he
was handcuffed.
Sgt. Thomas Dyal joined Deputy Starling, matching the suspect's
shoe prints to those found at the Thrift property.
Mr. Willis told deputies that he left Mac's Liquors on his bike and
climbed Mr. Thrift's fence to urinate, states Deputy Starling's report.
The suspect also said he was intoxicated and could not remember all
he did that night.
Mr. Thrift identified Mr. Willis as the man he observed on his
property and a criminal history check of the suspect revealed several
burglaries and a home invasion with a deadly weapon.
In another burglary case, Melissa Rhoden named her ex-boyfriend
as the person possibly responsible for ransacking her Glen-St. Mary
home and smashing the window of a friend's vehicle in the driveway.
The victim told police she returned to her residence at 7529 Her-
bert Harris Rd. aboit 2:45 pm on September 13 to find her television
thrown from her dresser and broken, holes punched in a wall and her
washing machine pushed over.
She also said several items were missing.
Ms. Rhoden's friend, Kristen Hilliard, said someone had broken
the windshield and rear driver's side window of her 2001 Chevrolet
sedan.
When deputies questioned the ex-boyfriend, Larry Carter, 28, of
6762 Woodlawn Rd., he admitted ransacking the home.
Deputy Starling's report states the suspect went to the residence to
retrieve personal property but became upset once he entered through
an unlocked front door. Mr. Carter also said he accidentally fell into
Ms. Hilliards vehicle and broke the rear window, according to the;
report.
He was arreste-dfor criminal miischief, a misdemeanor.
SRachel Jones also reported that between August 18 and Septem-
ber 11, someone burglarized her home at 403 Jerry Circle in Mac-
clenny. The house was damaged by a fire six months before.
The victim said several items were missing from the residence and
Deputy Christopher Walker noted someone had entered the house
through a rear window and ransacked it.


Run over by own van


A Sanderson woman was re-
leased from Shands Jacksonville
and is recovering after she was.
run over on the right side by her
own van during an arrest the af-
ternoon of September 14.
Mary Davis, 63, will be
charged with aggravated as-
sault for nearly striking Deputy
Bill Starling with the driver side
door of her 2001 Nissan as she
attempted to back out of a drive-
way at her residence off Mallie
Davis Rd.
Police said she then backed
into a nearby riding lawn mow-
er before turning the van sharply
to the right and falling out the
door.
The van then struck a nearby
police cruiser.
Cpl. Starling and Deputy
William- Hilliard responded to
the address early that afternoon
to arrest Mrs. Davis' son Wil-
liam (Clay) Davis, 38, follow-
ing another domestic incident
at the home of his sister Louann
Crews, 45, off Nutty Buddy
Lane. That residence is located
off Reid Stafford Rd. north and
west of the Davis home.
Mr. Davis had gone to the
Crews residence to see his chil-
dren, who had been taken there
following a domestic violence
arrest two days earlier. In that
case; Mrs. Davis' husband
Mallie, 70, was charged with
battery after he allegedly' beat
her on the arm with a telephone
and twisted her arm.
The elderly Davis couple
had been keeping Clay Davis'
children, and his father Mallie
had turned belligerent when
Mrs. Davis sought to take one
of them to a medical clinic that
afternoon.
Ms. Crews, who is Clay Da-
vis' sister, said her brother ap-
peared at her residence about
12:30 and began cursing and
threatening her when she re-
fused to let him take the chil-
dren. Mallie Davis had asked


her to care for the children fol-
lowing his.arrest on September
12.
Ms. Crews' husband Randy
told Deputy Hilliard that Clay
Davis threatened to kill his wife,
and on that basis the officer
went to the parents' residence to
arrest him.
Clay Davis also faces crimi-
nal charges for allegedly threat-
ening to kill Joseph Harvey
earlier that day. He made five
telephone calls to the Harvey
residence starting at 2:30 am.
Mr. Harvey is dating Mr. Davis'
ex-wife..
Mary Davis became en-
raged when the officers arrived,
and she also threatened to kill
Louann Crews, and headed for
her van saying if her son was
going to jail, she was too.
Cpl. Starling then attempted'
to stop Mrs. Davis from leav-
ing, and she shifted the van into
reverse and accelerated rapidly,
narrowly missing the officer.
As of September 16, Mrs.
Davis had yet to be arrested.
The sheriff's department filed
a direct information against her
for the aggravated assault, how-

Thefts include vehicle, fuse box parts How to plan


A number of items were reported stolen this
week including porch furniture, clothes, fuses and
circuit breakers, and a catalytic converter.
The converter was reported stolen by a 17-year-
old male student at Baker County High School Sep-
tember 8. He pointed to a 15-year-old male suspect
that he said he'd had problems with because he was
friends with the suspect's girlfriend.
The suspect later denied the accusation, saying
he wasn't at school that day. His mother also said
he had been home.
A clerk at Cato Fashions at 1172 S. 6th St. re-
ported a shoplifting incident the same day about
6:30 pm.
Jeaneva Allen said an unknown female stole an
outfit from the store by taking it into the dressing
room, removing anti-theft device and concealing it
before leaving. The clerk said the woman was ac-
companied by two other females, all of whom left
in a gold Ford Taurus.
Three days later a loss prevention officer at
the Macclenny Wal-Mart observed 18-year-old Lu-


cious Jackson, no known address, remove a Blue
Tooth headset from its packaging and place it in his
pocket September 11 about 6:00 pm.
The headset, valued at $37, was recovered from
Mr. Jackson after the officer confronted him about
the theft. A misdemeanor theft charge was filed
with the state attorney's office against the suspect.
Sometime between 8:00 pm the previous eve-
ning and 7:00 am on September 11, Amy Craw-
ford of 3673 Penelope Ln. said someone stole two
wicker rocking chairs and a planter from her front
porch:
.* Karen Lipnick reported the theft of all the fuses
and circuit breakers from the fuse box at her rental
property at 5838 Tim Crews Rd. on September 12.
She implicated former tenant Carolyn Gnann, who
moved out that day. A complaint for misdemeanor
theft was filed.
Cornelius Ruise of 500 MLK Dr. reported
the theft of the tag on his boat trailer. It occurred
sometime between September 2-7 at his residence
in Macclenny.


Drugs, suicide likely causes in two deaths


The body of a Glen St. Mary
man found dead in his bed the
afternoon of September 11 was
sent to the medical examiner's
office in Gainesville for an au-
topsy.
SGirlfriend Sarah Sheffield,'
20, said she and acquaintance
Summer Hiers, 18, both also of
Glen, realized that James Wig-
gins, 23, was dead when they
went to awaken him .in the mas-
ter bedroom of his residence off
Andrew Raulerson Rd.
Ms. Sheffield told Deputy
Mike Lagle she and Mr. Wiggins
had gone to bed about 3:00 that
morning, and he was still sleep-
ing when she awoke about 11:00.
She said Mr. Wiggins' lips were
blue and his body cold to the


touch when she and Ms. Hiers
tried to shake him awake about
6:00.
After police and rescue re-
sponded to the address, Ms.
Sheffield revealed she had hid-
den both marijuana and a bottle
of pills she found in Mr. Wig-
gins' pocket. She directed Dep-
uty Lagle to a closet where she
had placed them.
She explained she concealed
the drugs "because she didn't
want anybody to think bad of
him," according to the deputy's
report.
The pills were'sent to Gaines-
ville with the body, and a toxi-
cology analysis will determine if
the death was drug-related.
A Glen St. Mary man was


Aids in temporary escape

A Jacksonville man was charged September 10 with attempting to
stall a county deputy serving a warrant on a fugitive at a residence
south of Sanderson.
Deputy Chris Walker said Adam Clemons, 18, answered the front
door at the Boyce Ave. address just after noon and attempted to distract
the officer's attention from the rear of the residence by continuing to
converse with him.

tax village

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
The Baker County. Commis-
sion plowed through a number of
topics September 16, most nota-
bly a decision not to raise prop-
erty taxes.
The. board approved keep-
ing the same property tax rate
as last year $7.43 per $1000
of taxable property value but
the rate also means a roughly
$482,000 reduction in property
tax revenues for the county in the
fiscal year starting October 1.
The. rate will not generate the
same amount of tax revenue as
last year because the total tax-
able value of all the land in the
county, as determined by the
property appraiser's office, has
decreased.
The tentative tax rate amounts
to more than 11 percent below
the rolled-back rate of $8.39 per
$1000 of taxable value, which
would bring in the same amount
of revenue as last year.
At the tentative tax rate, the
Owner of a property with a tax-
able value of $100,000 would
pay about $743 in county taxes.
County commissioners also
approved a tentative $31.9-mil-
lion budget'for the 2008-2009
fiscal year, more than $5 million
than the current budget.
During a workshop that pre-
ceded the budget and tax rate
adoptions, the board adopted
changes to two school concur-
rency documents that were ta-
bled last month.
School concurrency is a meth-
od by which school districts can
ensure that developers, and then
ultimately new residents, pay for
additional classrooms, not the
existing taxpayers.
The changes give developers
of 11 existing residential proj-'
ects with, more than 1350 units,
the ability to be exempt from
making school concurrency pay-
ments until 2010, but also gives
an opportunity for developers
to request an extension on the
exemption if their projects run
into delays relating to permitting
from outside agencies. like the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District.
The states Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) has
mandated adoption of the docu-
ments by the county, the City of
Macclenny, the Town of Glen
and the school district by De-
cember 1 to establish school
concurrency.
Now that the commission
has adopted the changes, the
same must be done by the other'
municipalities and the school
board. Then DCA must approve
the documents before school.
concurrency becomes effective.
In other business, the board
approved the following:
An annual contract with
Baker Community Behavioral
Healthcare Services, a division
of Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital (NEFSH). that furnishes
out-patient mental health ser-
vices to county residents.
A annual contract with
NEFSH for the forensic mental
health services program that
conducts court-ordered mental
health evaluations or treatment.
A $61,137 contract with the
county health department.
Annexation of the county
fairgrounds property into Mac-
clenny to save on utility costs.
A $17,000 offer to repair
gutters at the Taber Library that
may be causing leaks in the roof.
County Manager Joe Cone said
the job was bid three times and
the $17,000 bid was the only one
received by the county. Other
repairs to fix the leaking roof
could be added to an existing
contract for the library's ex-


pension, which is being funded
through state grant money.
The gutter repairs will also
be paid for through state aid, Mr.
Cone said.
A $57,000 amendment to
the sheriff's budget for higher-
than-expected fuel costs,


for array ofc

A convicted felon from Mac-
clenny was sent to state prison
for 12i years after entering
guilty pleas on September 15 to
an array of felony charges, most
of them drug-related.
Marcus R. Wilcox, 24, was
one of a eight defendants who
drew prison terms during the
regular docket session of circuit
court this week.
Judge Phylis Rosier ordered
concurrent 12 and five-year
sentences in seven separate
cases, many of them controlled
buys of cocaine orchestrated
by sheriff's investigators. The
charges range from sale and
possession of prescription drugs
- three cases where the location
was near a school, thus bringing
a stiffer penalty to possession
of a firearm by a convicted felon
and attempting to bring contra-
band into county jail. He also
pled to misdemeanor marijuana
possession.
Mr. Wilcox had prior corivic-
tions for possession of controlled
substances with intent to sell and
resisting police without violence.
He was on a two-year probation
from late last year when re-ar-
rested in February, 2008.
In other cases, Judge Rosier
gave Judy L. Bailey, 27, of Glen
St. Mary a mandatory three years
in prison in return for her guilty
plea to two counts of selling of
prescription drugs.
She also pleaded to one count
of unlawful use of a two-way
device in setting up drug sales
in November, 2007 and June of
this year with a confidential in-
formant.
Todd M. Winfred drew a
term of 2 years after he pleaded
no contest to multiple counts of
sale and possession of cocaine
and controlled drugs. Mr. Win-
fred, 24, will. be on drug-offend-
er probation four years following
release from prison. The state
dropped three counts of posses-
sion with intent to sell.
James Lee Strickland, 33, of


Glen St. Mary pleaded guilty to
torching his 2003 Dodge pickup
in February of this year and got
-a 25-month sentence. He also
pleaded to making false reports
to both police and an insurance
company.
Case records show that Mr.
Strickland had missed two pay-
ments when he took the truck to
a wooded area off CR 125 and
set it afire. He was ordered to
make restitution of $13,528.
Two years in prison was or-
dered for James L. Tolliver, 24,
of Sanderson after he entered a
no contest plea to twin counts
of selling cocaine. The state
dropped two charges of posses-
sion of prescription drugs with
intent to sell.
Melvin Thomas Mann, 19,
pleaded guilty to grand theft auto
and drew a 15-month sentence
followed by five years on proba-
tion.
Thomas W. Cobb got a 365-
day term in county jail followed
by two years on probation in
return for his plea to lewd and
lascivious assault on a child less
than 16 years old.
Judge Rosier withheld ad-
judication of guilt in the case
of Timothy B. Carter after he
pleaded to obtaining prescription
drugs by fraud. He will serve six
months in county jail, followed
by a three-year term on drug-of-
fender probation.
Amita D. Hughes pleaded
guilty, to felony driving on a
suspended license and having a
license tag not assigned to her
vehicle. She drew an 18-month
probation, and was given credit
for time already served in county
jail.
Judge Rosier withheld ad-
judication of guilt in the case of
Brenda Sue Kirkland for sale and
possession of prescription drugs.
She will be on drug-offefider
probation two years and serve a
month in jail.

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
Chris Thomas is CEO and drug court co-
ordinator for Baker Community Counseling,
Inc., a substance abuse treatment and coun-
seling center located on East Macclenny Av-
enue.
"We are licensed by the state of
Florida to do four things," Mr. Thomas
points out. "Outpatient treatment, inter-
vention, after care treatment and pre-
vention.
.Referrals come from various sourc-
es including Tri-county Probation, the
courts and the Partnership for Strong
Families.
Some clients become involved in
the counseling as a direct result of the
Marchman Act, which enables parents
to use the court system to get their chil-
dren into counseling. Also, if a person
is declared by any three responsible
adults to be a detriment to themselves
or society because of substance abuse, a
judge can have them ordered into treat-
ment.
Many clients are generic or self-re-
ferred, showing up and getting involved
in the counseling program of their own
free will.
According to Mr. Thomas, self-re-
ferred clients typically tell staff such
things as: "I'm tired of alcohol ruling
my life" or "I've smoked crack for the
last time, help me get off of it," or "I.
just want to get the court system off my
back help me, monitor me, help me get
clean, I'll do what I have to do, but just
help me get this charge off my record."
SServices are charged according to a
sliding:scale based on a client's income.
The center operates through a state
contract, city and county funds and the
self-pay fees from clients. BCCS

tion/assessment and urine analysis to
determine the substance being used.
Irug testing is performed routinely through-
out the period of a client's counseling.
Baker Community Counseling oper-
ates on much the same system as Alcohol-
ics Anonymous and other similar groups. In
other words, the program works for the client
if the client works the. program.
"There is no magic.bullet or cure you
get back what you put into'it," said Mr.
N Thomas. "Some people get nothing because .
they come through the front door expecting
nothing."
Programs are set up one-on-one, client to
counselor. Counselors are educated listeners
who help clients open up and recognize how
they got in the situation they are struggling
with.
According to Mr. Thomas, it is often nec-
essary to point out the obvious. People who

Sorry PS3.
SSo long Xbox 360.
With youth sports getting into full swing around Baker County,
these gaming systems won't be seeing much action from a lot of local
boys and girls.
Youth are participating in YMCA soccer, club football and Little
League travel baseball, to name a few.
The soccer teams played their first games two weeks ago on the
fields next to the YMCA pool in south Macclenny. The YMCA league
has over 160 boys and girls on 16 teams in five age brackets.
Each of the teams play eight games and end the season with a tro-
phy presentation on October 25. Games are held on Saturday from
9:00 am to 1:00 pm with the younger teams playing first. Head to the
fields on Saturday mornings to see some great soccer.
-VSign ups for YMCA flag football starts October 1. There will be
youth teams for ages 4'-17 and adult teams for 18 and over. Games will
run through early December.
V Weekly games of the Baker County Touchdown Club contin-
ue every Saturday and Monday night (senior division games only)
through November 8.
The club league then hosts a middle division championship game
and pee wee and middle division all-star games. The senior division
all-stars will travel to Georgia to represent Baker County in a youth
league tournament.
V Although there is no fall baseball league due to re-conditioning
of the fields, Baker County is fielding some travel teams.
SThese teams are usually comprised of the most advanced youth
players at their level.
Coaches Bruce Sapp and assistant Johnny Tyson have hand-picked
22 of the best 11-12 year old prospects to make up two teams, Baker
Boyz 1 and 2. Coaches Doug Parker, Robbie Taylor, Ronnie Kiper
and Rock Rhoden have assem-
,I To our Granddaughter I- bled the 11-year-old team called
Gabby Shae the Wildcats. They have already
ou .ire our prec'..u;' (G-riddiughtcr
L h o-irn r,, ad- : I qualified for the National USSSA
fill our N' .. ih Ih agilc. mi Tournament in St. Augustine, Oc-
-,ur Ic;. ,nth lots .:!. ..tober 24-26.
Happy Isr Birthday All three teams participated in
the Triple Crown Tournament in
Jacksonville last weekend at San
Succi baseball park off Beach
SBlvd. that hosted more than 30
teams. The oldest team finished
third while the Baker Boyz 2 fin-
ished fourth. The young Wildcats
had a tough time getting started
and dropped three straight.
t-,.F. LWhile the Coaches were dis-
| i.'"".".; &,", njj'nj i I ... . tl r, f r


appointed with the finish, they felt the tournament provided good ex-
perience for larger tournaments in the future.
The teams will participate in the USSA Baseball Blast tournament
in Lake City this weekend. All the boys and coaches are focused on
amassing enough points during the season to qualify for the Triple
Crown Tournament at Disney World November 27.
Both Mr. Parker and Mr. Sapp try to keep games within northeast:
and central Florida, but are planning to travel to other states next
summer.
The 11-12 year old teams are planning a trip to play a tournament
in Cooperstown, NY, which includes touring the Youth Hall of Fame.
The 13-year-old team will head to Myrtle Beach, SC for the Cal Rip-
kin Experience, a one-week tournament.
Coach Sapp has one son on the older team, but plans to continue
the program even after these players move on to school ball.
"It's very time-consuming, but I like it," said Mr. Sapp. "We look
forward to starting more teams in the future."
Coach Parker, who has one son on the Wildcat team, said, "The
more these kids get to play, the better they become. Improving in
baseball is based on repetition." Since June his Wildcats have played
29 games.
V Not to be outdone, the girls of Baker County are swinging the
bats, too.
The girls softball 10-under team coached by Jackie Smith, Blake
Griffis and Wesley Lewis is practicing hard to begin its tournament
run in the next few weeks.
Coach Smith is the father of Tiffany Smith, who recently led the
Baker County High School Wildcats to their most successful season.
He began coaching his daughter at the 10-under level. Tiffany was,,
recently offered multiple college scholarships to play softball.
Thanks to all the volunteer coaches and their families for their
selfless dedication to the youth of Baker County and good luck to all
the young athletes.

Vote DR. VINNIE FERREIRA
For Superintendent Of Schools

As your Superintendent, I will work to reconfigure
the Pre K-5th grade undergone roof instead of
three different ones.
This reconfiguration would result in:
1. Transportation cost savings for the district.
2. Valuable travel time savings for parents. Drop
off & pick up of students at one school.
3. More parent involvement in student activities.
4. Mdre volunteering by parents. (PTA)
5. More consistent daily starting/ending times.
6. More consistency from grade level to grade
level promoting a fluid curriculum.
A first-rate progressive plan with Pre K-5th grade
under one roof would consolidate the Baker
County Educational Community as a whole.

: The BCHS Wildcats got three quick scores be-
fore halftime and then survived a lackadaisical
second half and determined Tornado comeback to
defeat Bradford County 34-15 on Friday. The Cats
will hostArlington Country Day this coming Friday
at 7:30 pm.
SThe Cats capitalized on a Tornado miscue to get
their first score of the evening. After their own start-
ing drive stalled, a determined Wildcat defensive
effort forced a Bradford punt deep in Tornado terri-
tory. The snap was high and the ball rolled around
ii the end zone before it was snapped up by the
Wildcats for the opening score. The PAT was good
for a 7-0 start.
, The Wildcats ran the ball well all night and
Darvin Ruise looked almost back to full speed after'
sitting out the Union County game with an. ankle
injury. Ruise and Greg Williams both came away
from the game with 101 yards rushing.
SThe Wildcat defense started the game fired up
ajd again siiuffed an\ Bradford offense. Hank
umer, Dekimby .Hogan, Ethan NMunson and
company closed off the line of scrimmage and the
Wildcats got the ball back at midfield. From there,
sophomore fullback Rueben Jackson took over and
dove the ball down the field for the score. A bad
snap caused Brendan Donovan to miss the PAT and
the Wildcats led 13-0.
' The Wildcats seemed poised to score again af-
ter Trek McCullough blocked a Tornado punt at the
two, but a bizarre bit of officiating awarded Brad-
ford a "do over" and this time they got the punt
away.
The Cats scored again near the end of the half.
Ruise hit Harold Moore on a short pass that he
turned into a 30-yard gainer. The drive culminated
with a 30-yard score from Greg Williams. Ruise ran
in the conversion attempt to give the Cats a 21-0
edge at the half.
; BCHS looked poised to roll over the Tornados
when they scored on a 12-yard Ruise run to start the

S The Baker County Touchdown Club (BCTC)
held opening day ceremonies this past Saturday,
September 13, when hundreds of young football
players and cheerleaders brushed the morning dew
from the Memorial Stadium field to begin a new
season.
, While parents cheered from the stands the
young players and cheerleaders were introduced.
All stood as a prayer was offered by Pastor Timmy
Thomas of Christian Fellowship Temple, remem-
bering those in harms way from Hurricane Ike
hd receiving blessings for the children and adults
involved in the league this year. League president
Richie Tharpe then declared that the season was
officially open and the Jamboree games began.
; Mr. Tharpe's son Richie has come up through
the BCTC league and is now one of the young play-
ers on the high school junior varsity squad. Many
of the young athlete's on the field that day will fol-
low in his footsteps.
The jamboree allows teams to get ready for
the regular season by playing one half of a regu-
lhr football game against another team. Jamboree
games are used as tiebreakers if needed at the end
of the season.
S The pee wee division (ages 7-8) got things start-
ed with four games displaying the talent of all sev-
en teams in the division.
SFirst up were the Packers overcoming the young
Jaguars squad. Then the Giants toppled the Eagles
and the Cowboys roped the Vikings. Finally the
Packers won against the Bucs.
SIn the middle division (age 9-10) the Panthers
pounced on the Raiders while the Lions feasted
on the Titans. The middle division's Chargers
grounded the Jets. The senior division (age 11-13)
saw the Falcons over the Patriots, the 49ers rusting
the Steelers and the Redskins toasting the Patriots,
who were playing their second game of the day.

third quarter, but then the air seemed to come out of
the balloon. The game just went flat as both.teams
traded possession.
Bradford fans got something to cheer about when
quarterback Trey Winkler hit Tramaine Harris for a
16-yard touchdown after a sustained drive. It was
the first touchdown of the season for the Tornadoes
and seemed to re-energize them and their fans.
The Wildcats got another TD in the fourth period
from Jackson and the Tornadoes finished off the
scoring with an exciting 73-yard halfback option
from Rodney Mosely to 'Seth Upthegrv. Mosely
was the Tornadoes' starting quarterback last year
before moving to tailback this season.
There were.both positives and negatives for the
Wildcats to take from this game.
They ran the ball well, with Williams and Ruise.
cracking 100 yards. Moore and Jackson also had
50-yard plus games.
The defense looked very good in patches. Mun-
son, Fanner, McCullough and Hogan all had stand-
out games, and Donovan continued to kick the ball
consistently.
The most troubling aspect of the game was the
loss of focus early in the third quarter. Though the
defense did a pretty good job of holding the Torna-
does in check, the two scoring drives will irritate
Coach Bobby Johns, who will undoubtedly feel that
the Wildcats should have left the game with a shut-
out.
The Wildcat maxim of "finish the game" has
been in place since Johns came to Baker County,
and if that third period lull had happened against a
team with a more potent offense, the Wildcats could
have been troubled with a legitimate comeback.
The Cats will host the Apaches of Arlington
Country Day on Friday. The Apaches are 0-2 with a
loss to Baldwin in their first game and a 54-0 past-
ing at the hands of Madison County last Friday.




season opens

season were played on Monday night, September
15. All senior games arelheld Under the lights on
Monday nights at 6:00 and 7:30.
The 6:00 game featured the Falconsand the
Steelers. The Falcons were strong early taking a
6-0 lead into halftime, but the Steelers responded
in the second half with 12 unanswered points for
the win, 12-6.
Coach Mitch Mitchell credited the boys for their
conditioning and patience.
"I was happy to see the boys not hanging their
heads when they got behirid. They kept working
hard and wore the Falcons down," he said.
Mitchell's son Landon plays on the team and em-
braced his first win in four seasons in the League.
"When I first came here, I took winning for
granted," said the young athlete. Landon had played
on some very successful Pop Warner teams before
coming to Baker County. "After 24 losses, this one
sure feels good," said the younger Mitchell.
At 7:30 the Redskins hosted the 49'ers. The
Niners were impressive throughout, though the
Redskins threatened to make it close in the third.
quarter.
The power of Carl "CeCe" Jefferson and the
speed of Joseph "Tuck" MacCray were too much
for the Redskin Defense. The Redskins countered
with big Jeffrey Holland who had an impressive
night running the ball. But it wasn't enough as the
49er's took the game 30-6.
The BCTC League provides the opportunity
to play organized football to over 250 young boys
and girls each year! The league also organizes the
Cheerleading squads that accommodate over 100
young Cheerleaders.
All of this is accomplished through the efforts
of volunteers in the Baker County area. Our thanks
to all of those who provide such a positive program
and such great memories for the youth of Baker
SCounty. Good Luck this season.

O'Shay Milton Johnson, the Wildcat football
player hospitalized with a serious neck injury, got
quite a well-known visitor in his hospital room at
Shands Jacksonville last week. Heisman Trophy-
winning Gator quarterback Tim Tebow stopped by
to talk to Johnson and his family.
Tebow spent time talking football
with Milton, signing autographs and FAT
generally offering the young player
a message of hope and encourage- ROBER'
ment.
The young player is now able to
speak and has some limited mobility. He is due to
be transferred to a rehab hospital in Atlanta.
As for Tim Tebow, his visit was a surprise, and
he reportedly took it upon himself to go there. He
likely became aware of O'Shay's plight via news
reports.
V There were plenty of teams that needed some
encouragement after Saturday's football games and
others that were rolling along like steamrollers.
After watching USC smash Ohio State, I have to
agree with pundits that the Trojans are the real meal
deal. They are fast, strong and physical. Granted,
Ohio State was without its finest weapon, Beanie
Wells, but still they were dominated by. USC.
V\FSU continued to toll along, routing Chatta-
nooga and looking very good offensively. But they
haven't faced a powerful oppo-
nent and we'll see what they re-
ally have when they take on #18
Wake Forest this weekend. Wake
has a steady offense and defense Rent;
and will be a real test. 7163 E. Mt. Verr
Granted it's hard to judge
what FSU has and doesn't have. C
after its first two games, but one 259-8,
thing is abundantly clear. Chris- for an

could be an offensive weapon.
One real question mark is the kicking game. Zach
Hobby was very shaky. The kicking game has cost
FSU two national titles in the past, so you would
think that would be a roster slot that they'd cement
before moving on' to others.
V Georgia squeaked by South
ADY Carolina 14-7. Does that mean that
the Bulldogs aren't as good as adver-
GERARD tised? Hard to say. The Gamecocks
are always a problemfor UGA. They
play the hard and close just about ev-
ery year.
V East Carolina didn't upset another top ten team
this week, but avoided getting upset itself by pesky
Tulane. V South Florida cemented its position in the
top 20 with a squeaker over #13 Kansas. It took a
little English on the ball to nudge a last-second kick
back around through the uprights.
/ One team that needs a lot of encouragement
and probably some help on the offensive line is the
Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars, who many peo-
ple considered Super Bowl contenders, have started
the season 0-2 with the Colts waiting in the wings.
It's not an easy start of the season for Jackson-
ville, who will face Houston after Indy and then the
SteelerS. It's perfectly conceivable that Jacksonville
is 1-4 after five games. There's a scary thought.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, September 18, 2008 Page 14


Coach sees


wins for rest


ofschedule

BY CHUCK NICHOLS
Press Staff
Although the junior varsity
Wildcats are 1-1 so far this sea-
son, Head Coach Lee expects
his team to go undefeated for the
remainder of the season.
The JV Wildcats lost a hard-
fought battle to Gainesville High
by only a touchdown, 18-12,
September 2.
The score was knotted at
12 in the fourth quarter and
the Wildcats had Gainesville
backed up in its own territory,
but on fourth down and long, the
Gainesville squad hit a long pass
to the Wildcat 3-yard line. The
resulting touchdown was the dif-
ference in the game.
Coach Lee said that while the
team made some "big improve-
ments" and fought hard during
the entire game, turnovers are
what lost it.
"The whole coaching staff
was very proud of the effort,"
said the coach. He praised the
play of linebacker Richie Thar-
pe and middle linebacker Jered
Lee.
Clearly, the loss to Gaines-
ville taught the young Cats a
lot as they punished Suwannee
County the next week, 38-6.
Coach Lee indicated the win
was a true team effort.
"If I had to choose outstand-
ing players, I'd pick the start-
ing offense and defense and the
backups," he said.
He was particularly pleased
that every player got a chance to
play. Standouts included quar-
terback and linebacker Thomas
Sirk and running back Johacius
Green, who had two touchdowns
for 44 and 25 yards.
Marcus Driecus "Dreek"
Ford had four rushes for 124
yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Coach Lee praised the efforts
of his JV offensive coordinator
Chaz Johns.
"Chaz called a great game,"
said Mr. Lee. "He kept the Su-
wannee defense off balance the
whole game."
Coach Lee says he doesn't
want to overlook anyone and is
focused on the next game against
Union County, but he can't help
but see the last game of the sea-
son against Nease on October 9,
as the team's biggest challenge
this season.
"Nease will be a big game,
but I like our chances."
Head varsity coach Bobby
Johns.is excited about this group
of ninth graders, too. "The hard
part isn't developing the boys,
it's keeping the boys together to
develop," he said. "I've been told
we have great players, but just
not enough of them."
If this young group works on
academics in high school, con-
tinues to play hard and sticks to-
gether, there is no question they
will make a very special Wildcat
team in the years to come.
Next up for JV is the home
game against Union- County
September 18 at 7:00 pm in Me-
morial Stadium.

First Coast


The Lady Wildcat volleyball
team opened the week up with an
impressive win over First Coast
High School Sept. 8 in three
Straight games by the scores of
25-20, 25-21 and 25-21.
Ashley Holton and Mea-
gan Osteen led the Wildcat
attack. Holton ended two of the
three matches with a thunderous
kill from the sets of Kari Harris.
The Lady Cats traveled to
Keystone Heights Sept. 9 and,
played a strong match but came
up short losing in five games by
the scores of 28-26, 17-25, 18-
S25, 25-19 and 11-15.
"I think we surprised the
Keystone squad by winning the
.first game," said Coach Chris
:Armoreda. "We had built some
Momentum going into the second
game but we find ways to squan-
der our great play and become
*very passive. Armoreda is criti-
:cal of the team's inconsistency,
.more specifically its inability to
-hold on to the lead. On the oth-
er hand, he was complimentary
:about how the team rallied back
,from being down two games to
:one and forced a fifth game. ,
The Cats started the final
:.game slow and spotted Keystone
,a 7-0 lead. But the team battled
back to tie the game at 9 before
,Keystone rallied for the win.
On Sept. 11, BCHS host-
ed Clay High School in its
.first district match of the fall
,season. Coming' off two solid
games earlier in the week, the
SWildcats hoped to come out of
,the gates strong at home, but
*they were swept by Clay in three
games by the scores of 15-25,
;26-28 and 18-25.

Sing Hilliard on Sept. 22. JV plays
