Popeyethe cyclingpooch goes ev
Chris Staggers, an avid cyclist who lives
and works in Macclenny, has come to the
conclusion that without his dog, fiobody
would know who he was.
"Everyope recognizes Popeye,'' he says
of his four-year-old
black and white
Boston terrier. By
"Nobody seems K
to see me anymore. Kelley
I can walk into a
place now and if the Lannigan
dog isn't with me, Pres
immediately it's
'Where is Popeye?'
They don't even say hello to me."
Mr. Staggers laughs and takes it in
stride. He finds the whole Popeye phe-
nomenon amusing.
He acquired the dog as a pup about the
same time he took up bike riding. His first
bike was a recumbent model which he
chose to ride because he was recovering ..
from a back injury. '
The pup was too small to be left alone
for long periods of time and also not yet .,Inr-f
house trained. The easiest thing was to -
take him along. ,
Mr. Staggers rigged up a place on the
"f bike for Popeye and off they went. When ....
his back healed enough, he got a racing
bike. They are designed for speed and not
for carrying any excess weightlike bag- -
gage. Mr. Staggers located a custom-made
rack which could be bolted to the rear of
the bike and attached a box on top. '.
This box was considerably higher off Y.-
Sthe ground than what Popeye had been
used to on the recumbent bike. The first '
time Mr. Staggers took him for a ride, he Vi-
jumped out after just a few moments. On
the second try, he stayed in a little longer,
but again jumped out.
Undaunted, Mr. Staggers put him right

Administration building re-sited

tion building was re-
cently moved from the southern P ess Staff
portion of the Baker Correctional Development
SCorporation's (BCDC) property to the northern portion of the 90-plus-acre site just
north of Macclenny.
The county originally planned to place the. building just inside the city limits on six
acres north of North Boulevard, west of Timberlane Drive and south of a drainage ditch
that dissects the larger parcel.
Being inside the municipal boundaries though, the county needed to go before the city
commission to rezone the six acres from residential use to government use last month.
At the rezoning hearings, a number of residents in the area, fearing a possible entrance
to the site off North Boulevard and thus increased traffic in their neighborhood, spoke
against the project.
That opposition, and the availability of land elsewhere on the BCDC property, led the
county to relocate the administration building farther north. The new site will share ac-
cess-with the sheriff's complex from CR 228.
"Overall the north site is a better location," said County Manager Joe Cone. "People
were worried about traffic and this will put the traffic on 228."
The BCDC had previously committed to giving the county six acres of its choos-
ing in return for $200,000 in seed money used to start the corporation, which is a non-

Teachers, non-instructional


employees to get'bonus raises

BY ERIN PETRIE
Press Staff .. ,
Baker County school district employees renegotiated their contracts this year and
will receive bonuses instead of raises, as a result of budget shortfalls.
The district had negotiated a three-year contract with the Baker County Education
Association and Baker County Related Personnel Association employee union sthat
would have ended at the close of this school year. But the contracts included a provi-
sion that if the district had a shortfall or windfall, the contracts would be renegoti-
ated.
Assistant Superintendent Glenn McKendree said the district was unable to meet
the negotiated terms of the former contracts' third year because of a $1.2 million cut
last year.
"By coming back to table, they understood we did have a shortfall," Mr.
McKendree said.
The resulting one-year contract produced a salary schedule that is "within the
financial constraints" of this year's budget, he said.
The salary schedules, approved unanimously by (See page 4)

profit group formed to construct
t~ie new jail and sheriff's office
complex.
The administration building's
new location has a number of
advantages over the old site, said -
Mr. Cone.
A bridge and culvert would've
been needed to cross a drainage
ditch held by the Florida De-
partment of Transportation if
the building was located on the
southern end of the 90-plus acres.
Mr. Cone said that would've cost
about $100,000.
Also, water and sewer con-
nections would be easier at the


new site because it's ,loser to,
utility lines, that run along CR.
228. The old site would've also
required a sewer lift station.
"Another advantage is obvi-
ously security," he said, refer-
ring to the new location's closer
proximity to the sheriff's office
now under construction.
The sheriff's office park-
ing lot could also be used for
overflow parking when county
commission hearings or other
gatherings at the administration
building draw large crowds.
"All of their employees will
go home at five o'clock, which
is when are meetings usually
start," Mr. Cone said.


S. The ,administration building's
new location was included in a
master plan for theentire 90-
plus-acre site recently completed
for the BCDC by CRA Archi-
tects of Tallahassee.
The plan shows various fea-
tures of the property like the
new jail and sheriff's office,
new county buildings, the access
road, drainage ponds, wetlands
and other land planned for sale
to private developers.
The BCDC intends to sell
about 13 acres, some with CR
228 frontage, to help pay off the
$45 million it bonded to con-
struct the new jail and sheriff's
office.


Some daffodils
are still up for sale
The Baker County Extension
Service recently held a daffodil
program at the Agricultural Cen-
ter with Linda Van Beck from
the Florida Daffodil Society.
The program was a success
and the extension office still has
several daffodils available for
sale. There are 14 different va-
rieties to choose from, ranging
from $2.50 to $5.00 per bag.
All proceeds will be used to
fund future community projects
sponsored by the Baker County
Master Gardeners.

experiencing increasing use as patrons

playground equipment. P
Access to the park's
new bathrooms certainly KELLEY I
enhances the entire rec-
reational experience. The
bright blue tarp structure adds some es-
thetic appeal as well.
Overall, the abundant litter, so preva-

lent prior to the upgrades, has subsided,
no doubt in part to a renewed sense of
civic pride by patrons.
Well, most of them.
jACK I visited the park this
past Monday at mid-day
and learned there are

ll defies the understand-
kNNIGAN ing of anyone with two
brain cells to rub to-
gether who dispose
of their considerable refuse by tossing it
on the ground, often at the foot of trash
receptacles.


One family" -
did place their.
copious amount -
of picnic trash
in a cardboard '.Vr -^r"Hl
box which I *."
will give them
credit for, but
the effort was
pointless as
they left the
box sitting
by the picnic
table.
Q u i t e '
probably

animals
turned it
over and rifled through the unsightly con-
tents which spread haphazardly over the
ground. It was a sight to put off anyone
who might have the intention of enjoying
a picnic at the park.
I have a feeling that if confronted,
these litterbugs would claim there wasn't
enough room in the trash can right next to
the table: Trash cans are located through-
out the park and are not that far away from
each other. Being too lazy to walk to one
just doesn't cut it.
Unfortunately, litter is also still preva-
lent around the duck pond and can be
seen along the outside of the park's fence
and in the drainage canal along the walk-..
ing trail.
On the positive side, it's encouraging to
see the park being used and appreciated
the way it should be. I saw some moth-
ers basking in the late afternoon sunshine
while a group of children repeatedly slid
down the slides, squealing and shouting
with wild abandonment. A gentleman
was quietly sitting in his parked vehicle
just outside the park fence, reading a mag-
azine and munching on a sandwich, probi-
ably glad for a few tnitnutes of privacy"
away from the office. -' .
A group of people including city of-
ficials and citizens sat on the committee
that administered a grant which allowed
the recent park upgrades. Additional im-
provements are being considered as'well.

Beating a dadhorse: Vote for Bb'
Be ti deadho


The presidential election is
just three weeks away and even
though I'm really busy right
now, in lieu of the recent events
on Wall Street and around the
world its time for me to re-up my
candidacy. After all, like Mitt
Romney did before the Republi-
can Convention, I just suspended
my campaign While I did impor-
tant stuff like scrape paint on my
living room windows and unclog
the bathroom shower.
After watching the endless at-
tack ads with charges and coun-
ter charges that both campaigns
have been hurling at each other
and the voters, it seems clear to
me that my candidacy is needed.
Like my slogan says: Vote Bob
- It Could Be Worse.
So now I'm back, re-energized
and ready to take on the issues
the problems facing our country
now and in the four years that I
will be in office.
Why vote for Bob? It's easy.
My ridiculously padded resume
contains many of same qualifi-
cations as the other candidates.
Let's look at some of those qual-
ifications.
John McCain is a war hero.
Though I have never been to war
I have tried to buy the new Play-
Station at an after Thanksgiv-
ing sale at Wal-Mart when only
five were left on the shelf. If that
doesn't constitute a pitched bat-
tle against overwhelming odds, I
don't know what does.
Senator McCain is 72 years
of age. Hey, compared to him I
would be considered young-ish,
a spring chicken, a whipper-
snapper. Besides, I am much less
likely to sic the Secret Service
on teenagers cutting across the
White House lawn or request the
4:00 pm Early Bird Special in
the White House dining room.
Oh, and while 1 may not be a
maverick, I've watched Maver-


ick and Senator McCain looks
nothing like James Garner or
Mel Gibson in the movie ver-
sion.
Senator Obama says that he
is an agent of
change and
will bring M Y S
change to the
country. What ,
would be a THE M
bigger change
than me? Af- ROBERI
ter all, I am
grossly inex-
perienced at politics, just a regu-
lar guy from a small rural town
who brings nothing but humor
and silly catch phrases to the of-
fice. Wait a minute isn't that
Sarah Palin's resume?
Speaking of Governor Palin,
while I have never hunted moose
or driven a snowmobile I did
briefly live in Canada as a child
where they have moose and drive
snowmobiles. We have other
similarities as well. When faced
with difficult questions from my
wife like, "Did you really spill
house paint on the dining room
tablecloth?" I have been known
to babble incoherently and say,
"I'll get back to you on that."
Senator Joe Biden and I have.
a lot in common. He is known to
be long-winded and go on and on
and on and on about seemingly
insignificant details while ignor-
ing the big picture. Ask my fam-


ily or anyone who really knows
me. Heck, any of you who've
read my columns for years will
be quick to point out that's me in
a nutshell.


IDE OF

lATTER
'GERARD


There it is.
" I am the only
candidate who
combines the
qualifications
of bath the
presidential
and vice presi-
dential candi-
dates in- one


package. Now for the issues.
The Wall Street bailout.
Though I know nothing about
stocks and bonds I have had to
bail out a boat when my crazy
Uncle Dick shot a hole in it try-
ing to kill a Northern Pike that
he'd pulled into the boat. I think
that's pretty darned similar to
what's going on in the stock ex-
change.
The equivalent of the coun-
, try's crazy Uncle Dick has shot a
hole in the bottom of the national
boat and now the taxpayers have
to bail out the country before it
sinks. I can-understand that.
National security. That
means anything and anybody
that messes around with our
freedom as individuals and as
a country. That could be ter-
rorists who hate us because we
are different than they are or
anyone who tries to circumvent


the Constitution no matter what
their aims.
I've actually read the Consti-
tution. I wonder what percent-
age of the people running for
national office can say that? It's
not the easiest reading but when
you get past the fact that it's not
as fast-paced as a Harry Potter
novel, you discover that there
is whole lot going on in there.
I am constantly amazed by the
Founding Fathers and the truly
revolutionary government they
put together over 225 years ago
Washington and Jefferson
and Madison like boring guys in
powdered wigs. They were revo-
lutionaries in every sense of the
word and probably the least bor-
ing guys we've ever produced.
We need some Washingtons and
Jeffersons and Madisons today.
There you have it, just a few
of the reasons for casting your
ballot for me. I don't have any
yard signs or bumper stickers
or inflammatory television ads,
so I'll just have to rely on word
of mouth and a grass roots cam-
paign.
Vote Bob It Could Be
Worse,


of
Macclenny and the county an
attractive and safe outdoor recreational
site to enjoy, away from the traffic and
noise of Hwy 90. For those without prop-
erty or a yard, the park can be a blessing.
A park is also a privilege and-that point
should not become lost. It belongs to ev-
eryone and it takes everyone to do their
part to help maintain it. Putting trash in
a trash can seems such a small trade off
for the privilege of enjoying a beautiful,
peaceful outdoor setting.
Pick up your garbage and dispose of
it properly. Otherwise maybe you should
just stay home. If you want to throw your
garbage in your yard and sit in it, go ahead,
but spare the rest of the community who
doesn't do that.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS, Thursday, October 16, 2008 Page 4


Inspector

Code board rec

BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
SA partially constructed home
north of Glen St. Mary has been
accruing code enforcement fines
since mid-August, now totaling
about $3600, which may qua-
druple before topping out in
February.
The Baker County Code En-
forcement Board received an
update on the property owned
by Vicki Bisquera and located at
7493 W. Smooth Bore Ave. dur-
ing its October 13 meeting be-
fore handling more typical vio-
lations for junk, yard debris and
unregistered vehicles at other
properties.
Ms. Bisquera's case was any-
thing but typical, though.
The Jacksonville resident has
been building a two-story home
in the Cannon Heights subdivi-
sion since 2004, and both neigh-
bors and county officials have
called it unsightly, unsafe and
structurally unsound.
"This wall," building depart-
ment director Bob Hathcox told
the board during a slide show of
the home's condition, "you can
walk up to it and shake it, and it
will move."
The property first came to the
board's attention two months ago
for building permit violations
that had caused a number of Ms.
Bisquera's permits to be voided
during the last few years.
At that meeting, the board
gave Ms. Bisquera 10 days to
either submit a complete set of
plans to fix the property or tear
down the structure. That didn't
happen, and per the board's or-
der, daily $75 fines began run-
ning to encourage compliance.
Last month Mr. Hathcox had
the structure inspected both
by a licensed contractor and
the county's fire marshal, John
Motherwell.
Mr. Hathcox said the contrac-
tor, R.W. Tobias, recommended
demolishing the building, due a
number of problems including
dry rot, missing shingles that
led to water intrusion and mold,'
d ftiiorated and warped sheath-
ing, and damaged and illegally
modified trusses.


Entersplea,

(from page 1)
30 days to appeal this week's
sentencing. He can also choose
to file a motion to withdraw
his plea agreement, something
a judge, would have.to rule on
before it could happen.
"We'll be ready to try him if
we need to," said.assistant state
attorney Geoffery Fleck, adding
that it was very unusual for a
defendant to attempt to verbally
rescind a plea agreement at the
last minute.
Mr. Chadwick was heading
westbound on SR 228. south-
east of Macclenny June 2, 2007
when his vehicle crossed the
center line and collided with a
car driven by then 18-year-old
Angelica Nobles of Glen. She
was seriously injured along
with passenger and Glen iresi-
dent Summer Heirs, who was
17 years old at the time of the
accident. Jessalyn Combs, 19,
of Macclenny was killed.
Mr. Chadwick's blood alco-
hol level at the time of the acci-
dent was .13, far above the legal
limit of .08. The defendant had
three previous DUIs in Duval
County, and because of those
offenses, was driving on a sus-
pended license that night.
He was sentenced on four
DUI-related felony counts:
DUI, DUI manslaughter and
twin counts of DUI with serious


bodily injury.
Ms. Combs' mother, Melissa
Tucker, was emotionally shaken
as she addressed the court prior
to the sentencing.
"My heart aches everyday,"
she said. "She was not only my
daughter. She was my best friend
and confidant... Jessalyn was
not a perfect angel. But what I
do know is she's in heaven and
she's an angel now."
Before being led out of the
courtroom, Mr. Chadwick apol-
ogized to the victims' families.
"If I could take my own life to
bring her back, believe me, I
would," he said.

Protest to proposed Cedar Creek


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
Press Staff
Baker County Medical Services Inc. the non-
profit charged with managing operations at Ed Fra-
ser Memorial has dropped its opposition to the
1300-acre Cedar Creek development planned north
of US 90 between Glen and Macclenny.
BCMS earlier filed a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing to overturn the state Department of
Community Affairs' approval of the project.
Cedar Creek includes thousands of age-restrict-
ed units for residents 55 years or older that BCMS
argued would bankrupt the organization by sad-
dling it with an unsustainable amount of Medicare
patients.
But that was two months ago.
During its September meeting, BCMS's board
of directors voted unanimously to withdraw the
petition for the administrative hearing. The vote
came after DCA'asked for further information and
clarification on financial information contained in
the hospital's petition.
' "We voted to not go any further into the legal
process," said BCMS board member Dr. Gary Dop-


son, a physician at Northeast Florida State Hospi-
tal. "The board still feels the project is not good for
the hospital, but it appeared to us that at the local
and state level that it was pretty much a cut-and-dry
thing as far as something that was going to be ap-
proved. But we do still feel it's not the best in terms
of the long-term future of the hospital."
BCMS has operated here for the last 17 years
and built new medical facilities in 1998, financ-
ing construction through bond funds that are be-
ing paid back through the non-profit corporation's
revenues through 2023.
The petition claimed that in 2006, 40 percent of
the hospital's services went to Medicare patients
and 19 percent of charges were "written-off" as
charity care to the indigent. Furthermore, it stated,
charges for 20 percent of all services provided to
the residents of Baker County in 2005 were non-
collectable.
BCMS feared that with Cedar Creek's 5500
units of age-restricted housing, the hospital will be
inundated with Medicare patients whose bills
are only partially covered by the federal program
- and put the hospital out of business.


School employees get'bonus' raises...


(from page 1)
the school board October 6, are
based on steps, or years spent
working in the school district.
SThe Baker County Education
''ASsociation, which represents
instructional staff, has 26 steps
[0 to 25].
As employees move up to
a new step, they receive a 1.4
percent raise. Mr. McKendree
said that rather than negotiating
higher salaries for each step for
the 2008-09 school year, bonus-
es were negotiated instead.
Instructional staff in their first
year will receive a $100 bonus.
The average bonus for staff in
steps 1 through 9 is approxi-
mately $700.
Staff in steps 10 through 25
will receive an average bonus of
$350.
Instructional staff at step 25
and above will receive either a


$670 or $1170 one-time supple-
ment split over the remaining
checks of the school year, to
"help with the best five years for
retirement purposes," according
to the contract.
When state employees retire,
they receive their retirement
based on their best five yearly
salaries.
Per the salary schedule of the
Baker County Related Personnel
Association [non-instructional]
full-time staff at steps 0 through
10 will receive $250. Steps 11 to
17 will receive $300 and step 18
will receive $750.
Since Governor Charlie
Crist requested that all agencies
receiving state funds hold back
2 percent, both unions included
memorandums of understand-
ing that say they and the school
board will reconvene in March
2009 to determine if any funds
are available for redistribution

Cervone. As division
chief, Mr. McClintock
will oversee day-to-day

docket with the new appointee, and Gregory Ed-
wards represents the state in misdemeanor cases.

to seek the truth and seek justice," said the new ap-
pointee. "Our job is both to protect the public and
make sure a defendant's rights are not violated in
that quest for justice."
Mr. McClintock replaces Mel Bessinger, who
left recently to become general counsel at North-
east Florida State Hospital. He had been division
chief here for 13 years, coming from the Live Oak-
Lake City circuit.


$1OKin boguspurchases!

A Glen St. Mary woman notified the sheriff's department after
learning that her credit card had been used to make $10,000 in unau-
thorized purchases from J.C. Penney stores in the Miami area.
Sarah Taylor told police she learned of the fraud via GE Money
Bank when it informed her it was cancelling her credit line because
of non-payment.
Sheriff's investigator Steve Harvey contacted the Penney's organi-
zation on October 7 and learned that someone requested an address
change on the card over the Internet in July. The new address was in
Miami, and the purchases were soon after made using Ms. Taylor's
identity.
The investigator was told the security breach likely occurred in the
Penney credit system, and not because Ms. Taylor's personal informa-
tion was.compromised.
The company said it would remove the delinquent charges and cor-
rect the information errors.

ening notes and letters for his wife in vio-
lation of a judge's domestic violence injunc-
tion.
Police were unable to locate Daniel Edge,
44, after friends of the suspect contacted au-
thorities to make a well-being check on the
man September 30.
At the suspect's Crews Road residence,
police found photographs of the victim, Tina
Edge, 37,.that had been taken off the walls
and placed on furniture in the living room
with handwritten notes to attached to them.
"Some were apology notes, others were
threatening towards Tina Edge, and others
were notes that Daniel Edge intended to or
already had taken his own life," states the re-
port from Investigator Steve Harvey.
The rest of the house'had similar notes in
other rooms and a briefcase discovered in the
couple's car had an "ominous" note stating
that no one should open the case except Tina
Edge.

was located in Duval County with the keys.
inside, the doors unlocked and a note asking
that Mr. Edge's sister be called to pick up the
vehicle.
A search for the suspect on foot and by
helicopter was unsuccessful.
Since that time, Ms. Edge continued to
receive mail addressed to her in Mr. Edge's
handwriting. She also said that previously


addressed to her to her friends and family..
Ms. Edge said she feared for her life as
well has her daughter's and that Mr. Edge
had not turned in all of his firearms since
being ordered to do so as part of the domes-
tic violence injunction.
Mr. Edge is being sought on charges for
aggravated stalking and violation of a do-
mestic violence injunction.
In another domestic violence related case,
David Johnson, 44, of S. 9th St. in Mac-
clenny was arrested October 5 for allegedly
hitting his ex-girlfriend at her home on Pine
Oaks Circle about 6:30 that morning and
then fleeing.
About 30 minutes after victim, Patricia
Stephens, 39, reported the battery, Deputy
Randy Davis was advised by dispatch that
Mr. Johnson had returned to the Pine View
residence and was causing a disturbance.
The officer's report states that Mr. John-
son admitted to slapping the victim several
times in the head because he "lost it." Deputy
Davis also spoke with a witness to the inci-
dent who confirmed Mr. Johnson struck Ms.
Stephens several times in the head.
Mr. Johnson faces a misdemeanor charge
for domestic battery.
A felony battery charged was filed with
the. state attorney against a Macclenny wom-
an October 7 after she allegedly cut her boy-
friend with a knife.


was attacked by two men while walking
north on MLK Blvd. He made that statement
to Deputy Claude Hurley while getting the
three-inch cut sutured at the Fraser Hospital
emergency room October 6.
The next day, Investigator Brad Dougherty
spoke with Mr. Smith and his girlfriend, 52-
year-old Brenda Bones of the same address.
The victim said he lied to Deputy Hurley be-
cause he feared Ms. Bones may go to jail. He
was charged with filing a false report.
Ms. Bones told the investigator that she
was trying to fix a door with a knife when
Mr. Smith approached her from behind and
began "playing" with her. She said she told
him to stop playing and slapped him with the
knife blade, but didn't mean to cut him.
She was charged with aggravated battery.
In other violent incidents this past week:
Jerry Wilkerson, 32, and James Wilker-
son, 35, were arrested October 9 for alleg-
edly hitting George Codahead, 24, in the
face at Mac's Liquors on W. Macclenny Ave.
about 12:30 am. The altercation was caught
on the bar's security camera and both face a
misdemeanor battery charge.
Misdemeanor battery charges were fil6d
with the state attorney against Daniel Ruise,
27, and Wilford Ruise, age unknown, for
allegedly striking Aubrey Ruise, 49, in the
head and face several times in the parking lot
of the 229 Club the evening of October 8.


Two suspects from the north county, one of them a 17-year-old
male, were jailed for shoplifting and other more serious charges early
the morning of October 12.
Police were called to the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Macclenny
about 12:30 after several employees watched Daniel Brown, 19, of
Sanderson and the juvenile from Taylor putting on several layers of
clothing. One of the suspects put on a new pair of shoes and left his
in the store.
Deputy Matt Riegel said he stopped the younger man outside the
store after getting a description, and at first the suspect cooperated,
then resisted and had to be pushed uncuffed into the officer's patrol
car where he later attempted to kick out a rear window.
,Tipped by employees, Deputy Riegel then located Mr. Brown in
the parking lot, and he resisted being taken into custody until the of!
ficer shot him with a taser gun. The second suspect resisted efforts by
a rescue team at the scene to check him before he was booked, so both
were taken to Fraser Hospital's emergency room.
There police found several articles of clothing on the two, as well as
a crack pipe and marijuana pipe on Mr. Brown. A bottle of prescrip-
tion medication was found on the juvenile, and it was later learned the
medicine had been stolen from a north county residence.
Deputy Riegel said the juveniletook off on foot while being es-
corted from the hospital to a waiting patrol car. He made it about 200
yards before he was again subdued.
In addition to stealing merchandise like shirts, a hat, shoes and
sunglasses, the older suspect was charged with felony resisting police,
resisting store employees and possession of the drug pipes. Other sto-
len items were located in the rear of the officer's patrol car.
His younger accomplice faces felony charges of escape and posses-
sion of controlled drugs, petty theft and resisting without violence.
In addition, police learned Mr. Brown is wanted on a Baker County
warrant for violation of probation.

Home looted ofjewelry


A residence, on Fox Ridge
Circle in north Macclenny was
entered through a rear door the
afternoon or evening of October
7 and nearly $3000 in property,
mostly jewelry, was stolen.
Cristin Ellis told Deputy
Erik Deloach her husband left
the property about 4:30 and
she returned about 9:00 to find
the jewelry, seven rings and a
necklace, and a camcorder had
been taken from a bedroom and
a closet. Deputy Deloach said
other closets at the address were
ransacked also, but nothing else
appeared missing initially.
Entry was through a door off
the garage that had been forced
open.


Stole firearms

from grandad

SA warrant was sought earlier
in October for the arrest of Ste-
ven Croft, 26, of Sanderson for
stealing and re-selling two fire-
arms belonging to his grandfa-
ther.
The victim, Willie Griffis,
also of Sanderson, reported to
police on September 28 that a
.9 mm pistol and a Remington
rifle were missing from his resi-
dence.
.i Investigator Steve Harvey of
the sheriff's department learned
that the serial number from the
pistol matched one that had
turned up in a drug investiga-
tion. Officers also questioned
Randell Benton of Sanderson,
who is the father of the suspect's
girlfriend.
Mr. Benton said he purchased
the pistol from Mr. Croft about
a month ago for $100, and the
suspect came back the following
day and retrieved it because he
said his grandfather changed his
mind about selling it. Mr. Croft
later returned and offered to sell
Mr. Benton the rifle for $200. It
was recovered and returned to
Mr. Griffis.
The victim told the investiga-
tor his grandson is working out
of state and due back here in a
few weeks.
In another case, James Dan-
iels, 32, of Macclenny agreed to
re-pay $530 he allegedly took in
receipts from the Subway sand-
wich shop on South CR 228 dur-
ing a period of several weeks.
Manager Jeffrey Ward re-
ported on October 10 that Mr.
Daniels was voiding purchases
and pocketing the money. When
quizzed by Investigator Harvey,
he denied stealing the cash but
refused to take a truth verifica-
tion test. Mr. Ward agreed not
to prosecute if the ex-employee
paid back the money.


In other reports, vandals
ripped out sheetrock and elec-
trical wiring from two houses
on Cove St. north of Sanderson
sometime between the last day
of September and October 5.
Owner Roy Clark said he
returned to the property about
midday and found the interior in
disarray. There was no damage
estimate, but several items were
isolated that likely contained
fingerprints.
Someone took a purse and
contents from an unlocked 2004
Nissan parked on South 4th St.
in Macclenny the. afternoon of
October 5.
Patricia Wells said she was
away from the vehicle from
3:00-4:30. A neighbor told Dep-
uty Patrick McGauley he saw a
suspicious person in the neigh-
borhood about that time. He was
a tall white male with brown
hair and wearing a blue shirt.

the Macclenny area.
Mr. Davis told the investi-

cause it didn't cost any taxpayer
dollars," he said in front of City
Hall October 14, just before ded-

of City Manager Gerald Dop-

next weekend
The Old Jail at West 42 Mclver
Street in Macclenny is the place
to be on October 23, 24 and 25
for one of the scariest nights of
the year. The Baker County High
School History Club and the
Baker County Historical Society
are again teaming up to present
a night of horror in the old cell
block.
Each year the members of
the History Club create an eerie
theme to carry out as they portray
spirits of the unknown. There
will also be candlelight tours of
the old sheriff's quarters and up-
stairs jail cells where you'll learn
some interesting history about
the Old Jail.
Proceeds from the event and
refreshment sales are used for the
History Club's annual trip and to
preserve and restore the Old Jail.
Come join in the fun each
night starting at 7:00 pm and en-
joy a good scare!


from new homes and businesses
built in the city.
The new unit is equipped with
a 1000-gallon water tank and
1500 gallon per minute pump. It
also has a 30-gallon foam tank,
15-kilowatt hydraulic generator
and 3500 feet of supply and at-
tack hose.
The unit, which seats five
firefighters, will be placed at
Station One in downtown Mac-
clenny and the existing unit
there will be moved to Station
Two on South Lowder Street.
"This gives the department two
engines that can handle calls on
both sides of the railroad," said
Mr. Dugger.
A number of features on the
new truck will reduce safety
hazards like moving attack
hoses from the top of the engine
to the side and also cut down
on maintenance costs like the
$200 to $300 spent each year on
replacing window cranks. The
engine has electric windows.
Mr. Dugger also said roll-up
doors on equipment compart-
ments will save on the cost of re-
placing doors that open out and
often get broken off during the
course of rescues.
"That's a problem for every
fire department," he said. *
We've come a long way,"
added Mr. Dopson.
City commissioners held their
regular meeting after the dedi-
cation and approved condemn-
ing two dilapidated houses, one
for demolition and another for
rehabilitation. Both have been

violations.
The small vacant house at 148
E. Mclver St. will be demolished
by the city at a cost of $1890 and
a lien will be placed on the prop-
erty for that amount.
The other structure, an inhab-
ited home at 247 S. 2nd St. was
condemned as well, but Code
Enforcement Officer Joy Chap-
man said the city would work
with the owner to repair bad wir-
ing and a leaking roof. She said
a rotted porch was already being
removed and the city would in-
spect the progress of repairs on
a monthly basis.
Ms. Chapman said the con-
demnation allows the city move
forward with demolition if the
homeowners don't make consis-
tent progress to bring the struc-
ture up to code.
The board also approved pur-
chasing three East Bouleva'td
properties for retention ponds to
ease flooding in the area. The
cost will be about $229,000 for
two vacant lots and a third with
a house on it.

Cat miscues open the way for


Jackson offensive punch, 21-8


Going into Friday night's
game with the Jackson Tigers,
the Baker High Wildcats knew
that they would have their hands
full. Both teams were unde-
feated, and like the 10th ranked
Wildcats the Tigers were in state
polls at the number seven spot
- and had manhandled teams
with a potent offense and intimi-
dating defense.
In fact, the two teams were
so evenly matched that it was
clear from the early going the
team that blinked first would
lose this contest. Unfortunately,
Baker High blinked. A series of
miscues, three turnovers; and
missed opportunities would
prove their downfall and give
the Tigers a 21-8 victory.
Both teams took the field at
Memorial Stadium psyched and
ready. The Cats had new black
jerseys for the occasion and both
the home stand and the away
stands were packed to capac-
ity. The home fans were louder
than they have been all season
and were "seeing red," as Coach
Bobby Johns wanted the Wild-
cat faithful all in red as a show
of support in the biggest game of
the season.
From the opening snap it was
a brutal game, with players on
both sides of the ball throwing
themselves around on the field
for the sake of the team.
Neither team managed much
offense in the opening stanza.
The defense held sway on both
sides of the field. The Wildcat
defense wouldn't allow quarter-
back Corey Addison to control
the tempo of the game, and the
Tiger defense shut down the in-
side of the line and wouldn't al-
low the Cat runners to find the
corner.
The Cats like to pound the
ball in the early going with full-
back Reuben Jackson getting the
brunt of the carries. That has
been their M. 0. for much of the
season, but Tiger coach Kevin
Sullivan had seen the films and
plugged the middle on the tough
fullback.
And so it went for most of the
first quarter. But as the second
period neared, the error that
Coach Bobby Johns had been
dreading and preaching against
finally struck. After Jackson had
snuffed a Wildcat drive around


the BCHS 30, the center snap
sailed over the head of shocked
punter Harold Moore. Moore
chased the ball and was able to
get it back before the Tigers sur-
rounded him.
With the ball turned over to
Jackson at the BCHS 17, the
Wildcat defense put on an im-
pressive show of determination.
It made Jackson fight for every
inch of yardage and it took Ad-
dison and company seven plays
before the quarterback was fi-
nally able to punch it in from
one yard out on a quarterback
sneak. The PAT was good and
the Tigers led 7-0.
Through the second quarter
BCHS had opportunities, but
penalties or a tenacious Tiger
defense kept them off the score-
board. For its part, the Wildcat
defense continued to impress,
and it was clear that without the
special team error, the game
would have gone into intermis-
sion tied at zero.
-The game opened up a little
in the second half as both teams
began to move the ball with more
success. Moore was particularly
determined and had some excel-
lent returns. Greg Williams had
some good runs in the second
half and Darvin Ruise was able
to break containment on occa-
sion.
But the breaks continued to
fall for the Tigers.
Jackson moved the ball and
some dicey penalty decisions
went its way. With the game still
very much in doubt, Sullivan
went with Nigel Mitchell, who
has the better arm of the two Ti-
ger quarterbacks, and Mitchell
lofted a wobbly pass in the di-
rection of receiver Dorian Guy.
Darvin Ruise had perfect posi-
tion on the ball but it sailed right
between his outstretched hands
into Guy's arms and the receiver
dashed unchallenged into the
end zone. It was a jaw-dropping
play that could have sparked
BCHS the other way for a tying
score. Instead, the Tigers were
up 14-0.
Moore's woes continued at
the start of the fourth quarter.
He lost the handle on the ball
and before he knew it Marquel
Wade was headed in the oppo-
site direction. Wade made it all
the way to the Cat 38 before he


was stopped. Jeremiah Rackley
took it the rest of the way for the
score.
With time running down,
Coach Johns replaced Ruise
with Kendrick Sampson, but the
reality of playing from behind
put BCHS in uncharted territo-
ry. They had trouble getting the
plays in on time and had to burn
time outs. Nonetheless. the Cats
got on the scoreboard thanks to
a fine defensive effort by Greg
Williams. He picked off Mitch-
ell and showed why he is one of
the area's best running backs,
bringing the ball to the Tiger 11
yard line. Rueben Jackson took
it in and the Cats got the conver-
sion.
It was a disappointing night
for Baker High. They played the
Tigers even with the exception
of three turnovers and costly
penalties. The win puts Jackson
in the driver's seat, and marks
its fourth straight victory over
BCHS.
However, the Tigers were in
a similar situation last year and
were defeated 15-0 by the Raines
Vikings to hand BCHS the dis-
trict title. The Cats will need
some help from the Vikings or
the Suwannee Bulldogs if they
are to repeat this season.
BCHS will take on the win-
less Ocala Vanguard Knights for
homecoming on Friday at 7:30
in Memorial Stadium.


season undefeated teams was
held October 6 when the Forty-
Niners were faced off against
the Steelers.
But the real story of this game
began when one Steeler player
ran on the field 15 minutes late
for warm ups. The young Steeler .
team stopped their exercises and
began to clap as Kaleb Newmans
jogged onto the playing field.
If the last name seems fa-
miliar, it should, as The Press
reported last week about the
tragic accident that took the life
of his older brother, 18-year-old
Kyle Newmans. The accident
occurred the night before the
game.
The Steeler players had -al-
ready explained the situation to
their coach and there were no
expectations to see Kaleb that
night. Yet here he was with his
father, Eugene, less than 24
hours after realizing that their
lives would be changed forever.
That act of showing up displayed
more courage than the sum of
courage shown on the field of
play that night, and there was
much.
It might be considered poetic
justice that the Steelers won 20
to 19, but in the final analysis, it
was just a game. The real story
was the courage of a young man

Hope to



rebound



vs. Ocala
The Wildcats are hoping to
rebound this week with a home-
coming win over Ocala Van-
guard. There's a good chance
BCHS will come into the game
with a chip on it shoulders, still
smarting over the loss to the Ti-
gers and the chants of "Du-val,
Du-val" than rang from the away
stands.
The winless Knights 'could be
in for a long night. They haven't
managed a lot of offense this
season and are coming off a 42-0
trouncing at the hands of a good
Leesburg team.
The Knights scrapped Coach
Phil Yancy just four games into
the season and replaced him with
interim coach Scott Borth. The
administration hoped that the
change, and the addition of dif-
ferent offensive package, would
shake up Vanguard.
It didn't. Leesburg controlled
every aspect of the game and the
Knights played confused. They
want to hone their offense over
the course of the week, but the
Wildcat defense that put up an-
other strong effort in the Jackson
game will be licking their chops
after watching the films.
The Knights abandoned the
Wing T and took to the air versus
the Yellow Jackets. But Leesburg
harassed quarterback Quentin
Hitchcock, sacking him six times
and intercepting him once. The
pass attack just didn't work, with
Hitchcock going 6-20 for just 30
yards.
As ineffective as the pass-
ing game might have been, the
running game hasn't served the
Knights well this season and
Borth seems ready to rely on
Hitchcock's arm.
He needs to get a better ef-
fort out of his defense as well.
The Yellow Jackets ran for 266
yards that game and the Wildcats
have a better one/two punch than
Leesburg.
The Cats come into the
game with some wounds from
the Jackson game, but nothing
particularly serious. They are
banged up from a very physical
battle with the Tigers and it will
take a couple of days to get over
that. It will also take a strong per-
formance against the Knights to
help put the pain of the loss to
their district rivals behind them.
