Privatization revisited

Legislature may make another run atNEFSH


BY JOEL ADDINGTON
reporter@bakercountypress. corn
For the second time this year, the roughly 1200
local jobs at Northeast Florida State Hospital are
being threatened by a push in the state legislature
to privatize management of the facility, a move
that many here fear could lead to job cuts or the
facility's relocation.
Last week a proposed bill in the senate Health
and Human Services Appropriations Committee
calling for the state to contract out management
of NEFSH beginning in January 2010 caught the
attention of the local legislators and officials.
The committee's chairman, Sen. Durell Peaden
(R-Crestview), described the measure as a way
to partially fund the state's adoption program,
according to report from the Florida Times-Union
over the weekend.
A senatorial aide familiar with the matter told
local officials during a conference call March 30
that originally the committee bill didn't include


the contracting language and zero-funded the
adoption program.
Within a day though, he said, the $2.4 million in
predicted savings from outsourcing hospital man-
agement was split up, sending $1.8 million to the
adoption program and allocating the remainder for
children's health services.
The aide, who asked not to be identified,
was speaking to members of the Baker County
Legislative Coalition, which includes officials
from the Baker County Commission, Chamber of
Commerce, City of Macclenny, Town of Glen St.
Mary and the school district.
The coalition convened at the Chamber's office
in downtown Macclenny to plan a response to the
latest privatization effort.
Lobbying the capitol
A group of eight city and county officials went
to Tallahassee the next day at the behest of Rep.

Janet Adkins (R-Femandina Beach), whose dis-
trict includes Baker County.
She wanted them on hand to voice their con-
cerns to members of the house Human Services
Appropriations Committee, said county commis-
sioner Mike Griffis.
Mr. Griffis was joined by city manager Gerald
Dopson, Chamber director Darryl Register, county


manager Joe Cone, county commissioners Gordon
Crews and Alex Robinson, Macclenny assistant
city manager Roger Yarborough and Macclenny
mayor Dr. Gary Dopson, a physician at NEFSH.
"We'll come back as many times as they need
us," said Mr. Griffis.

Pot in the

backpack


of student

at Pre-K
A zip-lock bag of marijuana
was found in the backpack of
a disabled three-year-old at the
pre-K center in Macclenny last
week, but no arrests had been
made as of late Tuesday.
A teacher made the discov-
ery March 25 about noon and
immediately reported it to the
school's principal and police.
Deputy Jerald Peterson con-
tacted the boy's mother, Britta-
ny Blodgett, 20, of Miltondale
Lane in Macclenny the follow-
ing day.
According to his report, Ms.
Blodgett denied any knowledge
of the marijuana, saying she re-
cently bought the Sponge Bob
backpack from a yard sale in
Jacksonville and didn't exam-
ine it before using it.
"We've spoken to her and
interviewed her, but she doesn't
want to be cooperative," said
Sheriff Joey Dobson late on
March 31. "She's definitely
got a history that fits into what
happened here."
Ms. Blodgett has a criminal
record, including multiple drug
possession charges, dating back
to 2005.
The case is still under ac-
tive investigation, Mr. Dobson
said.
The incident was reported
to the Department of Children
and Families due to the juve-
nile's involvement. The boy has

Cedar Creek:


New


edge outAdrian, say
BY JOEL ADDINGTON
reporter@bakercountypress. corn
The massive Cedar Creek project planned
north of US 90 between Macclenny and Glen St.
Mary has a new manager.
County officials said the New York investment
group that former manager Adrian Development
had a partnership with has taken over the project
and hired Minerva USA, an Atlanta-based real
estate development consultant, to figure out how
to proceed.
The Baker County Commission approved
Adrian Development's plans for the 6000-unit,
55-and-older residential community and golf
course last summer and both parties signed a de-
velopment agreement calling for millions in im-
pact mitigation payments over 15 years.
Adrian has defaulted on that agreement by fail-
ing to make initial payments due in mid-Febru-
ary, said County Manager Joe Cone.
The change in management on the Cedar Creek


York


investors


they wil proceed
project comes as the result of a dispute resolution
agreement soon to be finalized between Adrian
and the investors.
A court-appointed mediator in that deal, Mar-
garet Smith of the Atlanta-based financial ser-
vices firm GlassRatner, told county officials the
investment group "very seriously," wants to con-
tinue the project, said county planner Carolyn
Bissonnette.
Mr. Cone said that's not surprising since they've
likely invested millions in the project thus far and
want to make their money back or better.
Minerva USA recently contacted the county
to request documents related to the Cedar Creek
project, namely the development agreement. Ms.
Bissonnette said Minerva intends to review the
documents and set up a meeting with the county
sometime within the next few weeks.
Because the agreement between Adrian and
the investors had not been finalized, Ms. Smith
of GlassRatner said March 27 that she could not
provide any information about the deal yet.

While most people go to
lengths to clean their windows,
a Macclenny artist has been
busy covering his up.
For the last two years, Jer-
emy Lunn, known to many as
"Germ," has used paint, paper,
permanent markers and any
other medium that strikes his
fancy to create unique works
of art on window panes.
Germ recalled how his win-
dow decorating adventure be-
gan.
"My mom came home one
day from a yard sale with
five old windows and told
me, 'Here, do something with
these,'" he said.
Already involved in pho-
tography, Germ decided to use
some of his existing photos of
farm animals as the inspiration
for his first window painting.
From the photos, he fash-
ioned stencils which he used to


form outlines of goats, chick-
ens, horses and dogs on the
glass. He filled the areas with
acrylics, then used applica-
tions of spray paint to lay in the
background.
Germ took the farm theme
a step further by attaching a
section of barbed wire around
the window's wooden frame.
He called the painting "Hard
Life."
"Living on a farm with so
many animals, you see births
and deaths often," he said. "The
weak or sick ones struggle and
some just don't make it. It can
be a hard life."
His reflections
Since that first painting,
Germ has used windows al-
most exclusively as his can-
vas, producing a body of work
that often reflects his perspec-
tives on contemporary society.

It's 7:55 am and teacher
Kirsty West is in her Mac-
clenny Elementary classroom
busy preparing report cards.
A stack of blue, red and purple
ribbons lie next to the pile of
paper work and envelopes on
her desk.
"If the students got an A in
every subject they receive a
blue ribbon with their report
cards. A and B marks get a red
ribbon and good behavior gets
a purple," she explains.
Ms. West was recently
named Baker County's 2009

Another run on state hospital...


(from page 1)
The officials planned to remain
in the capitol for the April 1
meeting of the senate Health and
Human Services Appropriations
Committee and they will likely
return six days later for a sen-
ate Ways and Means Committee
meeting, the bill's next stop.
"The fight will be there," the
aide said of the latter committee
meeting, adding that even if the
privatizing provision survives
beyond that point, it will go to
the senate floor a week before
Easter and then be in conference
for two more weeks near the end
of the session.
"We have a long way left to
fix this," he told them during the
conference call.
After the call concluded, the
discussion turned to strategies
coalition members could use
while in Tallahassee to ensure
budget-conscious legislators
understand the negative impacts
privatization could have.
"That's part of our job to
educate them," said Mr. Register,
commenting that one of the best
meetings he's ever had at the
capitol took place in an elevator.
"If you can get them one on
one and look them in the eye so
they can feel the pain you feel,
that helps," he said.
Fiscal impacts
Highlighting how much 1200
jobs means to a small county of
25,000 people as opposed
to a community of 100,000 or
more is critical, Macclenny
Commissioner Phil Rhoden
said during the gathering at the
Chamber.
"The impact may be smaller in
South Florida, but it's not here,"
he said.
City manager Gerald Dopson
cautioned the group not to ignore


the legislature's need to balance
the budget when they make their
case.
Mr. Griffis agreed.
While on his way to the capi-
tol, he said the best argument
they could make is that privati-
zation will be more expensive in
the long term.
"We're going to try and con-
vince them it's not a cost savings,
but that privatization will cost us
more," said Mr. Griffis.
The logic is that a profit-driven
company may discharge patients
early to keep costs down, which
could lead under-treated patients
into the criminal justice system
at a greater cost to the state and
taxpayers.
"The only way privatization
can save money is by cutting
staff and quality of care," Mayor
Gary Dopson had said the previ-
ous day.
The group also plans to cite
a study from the Department of
Children and Families (DCF),
which oversees state hospi-
tals, demonstrating that priva-
tization of other state facilities
hasn't saved the department any
money.
Although Mr. Griffis called
this latest effort to privatize
NEFSH a legitimate threat, he
was also confident that Rep.
Adkins and Sen. Charlie Dean,
who represents Baker County
as well, could get the language
removed.
"I don't know of anyone bet-
ter that can handle this for us,"
he said.
Here we go again
In January, Ms. Adkins suc-
cessfully defeated a provision in a
house appropriations bill requir-
ing DCF to launch an investiga-
tion into privatizing manage-
ment of NEFSH to secure a five

percent budget savings.
Ms. Adkins' amendment
eliminating that provision was
her first piece of legislation as a
state representative.
Sen. Dean also voiced oppo-
sition to any similar measures in
the senate at that time; however,
those calls were apparently not
heeded.
His aide, Kevin Sweeny,
said March 31 that Mr. Dean
would continue to lobby senate
president Jeff Atwater as well
as house appropriations chair
Marcelo Llorente and other leg-
islators to nix the latest privatiza-
tion language.
"He's working both sides,"
Mr. Sweeney said in reference
to the house and senate. "At this
point, the senator is fired up and
emotional about how much this
upset him, that it was still put in
the budget and that they were
doing this to his hospital."

Windows: creative medium of localartist...


(from page 1)
The paintings are made using
"found" materials, something
that appeals to Germ's belief in
recycling.
"I have my own renovation
business, so I salvage a lot of the
left-over paint from job sites," he
said. "I get some of the windows
that way and people bring them
to me also."
One painting, which portrays
the plight of a homeless alcohol-
ic, won a blue ribbon in the 2008
Baker County Fair. One side of
the image represents day, the
other night. There's a full beer
bottle on one side and an empty
one on the other. Between is the
repeating image of a man.
"It's about those guys you see
on the street, the one's who yell
'Hey buddy!' as you walk by,
hoping for some spare change
to buy more booze," Germ ex-
plained. "You pass them in the
morning when you go to work
and they're still there that eve-
ning passed out on a bench."
The painting "TV Dinners
and Technicolor Nightmares" is
Germ's take on the way televi-
sion steals away people's time
and how their minds symboli-
cally melt away under its influ-
ence.
One of the most complex
paintings in concept and ex-
ecution is the visually stunning
"Progression of Self-Destruc-
tion."
Twin window panels depict
the simple way of life in the
country slowly being engulfed
by the technological develop-
ments of the city and the nega-
tive results progress can bring
such as over development, crime
and pollution. Images of Baker
County and Jacksonville were
used to convey this idea.


Germ's lifestyle


Not all of Germ's subject
matter is so serious. Fun, leisure
and humor are themes that show
up in his work also. "Colorful
Language" is a symbolic self-
portrait. The repeating images
of cell phones surrounded by
bursts of bright color represent a
particular moment in the artist's
life.
"I was on the phone with
someone once and I was re-
ally, really angry," he said. "The
name of the painting says it all."
Surfing is the subject of sev-
eral paintings.
"Surfing has been a big part
of my life since I was 15," says
Germ. "The moment I got my
driver's license I was headed to
the beach."
"Wasting Time" is playfully
named because Germ says some
of his former girlfriends often
accused him of wasting time
when he'd pass an afternoon in
the surf. On the sea floor be-
neath the surfer is the image of
a watch face.
"$23.89" is a mixed media
work and is the artist's visual
commentary on the spiking gas
prices of the last two years. A
collage was created by scan-
ning dollar bills and coins and
attaching the images directly
to the glass. The rest of the de-
sign, which includes gas pumps
and an American flag, is over-
painted across the collage. A


billboard sign in the background
says "History Repeats Itself,"
which makes a reference to the
Great Depression of 1929.
"I was buying gas when I got
the inspiration for this paint-
ing and $23.89 was the exact
amount I had in my pocket," he
explained.
The process
Germ mostly has fun with
his hobby. He gets a window
pane and waits for inspiration to
take hold for a painting. He even
works around the glass if it is
broken, incorporating that into
the design as well.
He paints other objects, too.
The artist was emotionally
moved when a friend told him
about the loss of her son's be-
loved guitar. The boy's girlfriend
had been angry and broke the
instrument out of spite. Germ
painstakingly stitched the pieces
back together with ripcord, then
adorned the guitar with colorful
designs and a hand printed in-
spirational message.
The guitar hangs suspended,
along with a painted keyboard
from the ceiling of his bungalow
on his parents' farm. The walls
are lined with his many painted
windows.
"I live surrounded by art," he
says, laughing. "This place is
stuffed with it!"

Quitting


now can


help us all


ONPOINT

IN PRINT
JOELADDINGTON

All you smokers out there,
this is your wake up call quit
now and don't look back.
The new 62-cent federal ciga-
rette tax just boosted a pack of
Marlboro to almost five dollars
and state legislators have floated
the idea of another hike to plug a
multi-billion-dollar hole in Flor-
ida's budget.
It's only going to get worse
the down the road.
Think of it like this. A year
from now you could be spending
as much as a quarter every time
you light up. That's about $1800
each year for the pack-a-day
smoker. That's a nice vacation
to the Bahamas, folks. And take
it from a former smoker, you'll
feel much better, too.
I jogged about three miles and
over two bridges this past week-
end. There's no way I could've
done that if I was still smoking.
But taxing cigarette smok-
ers is a double-edged sword.
Eventually, you might run out of
smokers to tax and your revenue
stream begins to dwindle.
The logic is that the higher
you raise the tax, the more peo-
ple will probably quit (although
I'm sure some die-hard puffers
would pay $10 a pack if it came
to that).
And with fewer smokers,
there's fewer people to pay the
exorbitant taxes, which means
less money for the programs
cigarette taxes help to fund. In
the case of the federal cigarette
tax, that program is the State
Children's Health Insurance
Program (SCHIP).
President Obama recently
signed a bill reauthorizing fund-
ing for SCHIP, which in Florida
is known as Florida Kidcare.
The program offers low-cost
health insurance coverage for
children in families that earn too
much to qualify for free health
insurance under Medicaid, but
not enough too afford private
health insurance premiums.
In theory though, the ciga-
rette tax revenues should fall
over time and that means less
money for making sure all chil-
dren have access to affordable
health care insurance.
And that's unfortunate. I be-
lieve SCHIP is a good program

and don't buy the argument that
it's the first step in socializing
health care in the United States.
We're talking about making
health insurance affordable, not
turning doctors' offices into the
DMV.
The reality is that healthy
children grow up to be healthy
adults.
The more access to regular
checkups and basic health care
they can get, generally speaking,
the healthier the population will
become as a whole.
I'm not discounting the role
of personal responsibility here.
Everyone should practice pre-
ventative medicine exercise,
eating a good diet and getting
regular checkups.
But if childhood diabetes
goes undiagnosed into adult-
hood, the cost of treatment is
much higher.
However, if we can lead the
next generation into healthy
adulthood, that will save us all
on our astronomical health in-
surance premiums.
Take disaster insurance, for
instance. If hurricanes never
hit the coast of Florida, insur-
ing beachfront property would
be really cheap. If you live in a
flood zone and build your house
on stilts, again, your insurance
cost should decrease because
the risk you pose to the insurer
is reduced.
The same relationship exists
with health insurance. The fewer
health problems insurance com-
panies have to cover, the cheap-
er the insurance should cost, at
least in theory.
But, society by and large has
to become healthier before large

insurance companies can feel
the impact.
So by increasing access to af-
fordable health care for children
and pregnant mothers, which
Florida Kidcare does, and teach-
ing youths how live healthy life-
styles, overtime we can lower
the cost of everyone's health in-
surance.
Fewer smokers would have
the same effect on our health
insurance premiums, hopefully
enough to offset the loss in tax
revenue for subsidized children's
health insurance coverage.
Unfortunately, no matter how
much I run, how many leafy veg-
etables I eat or how many physi-
cals I pass with flying colors, my
insurance premiums won't be
going down anytime soon.
So give us all a break, you
walking chimneys, and put out
that cigarette.


I recently checked out the con-
struction site of the new addition to TH E
the Emily Taber Library currently
in progress and saw something that PO I
amused me. At this stage, the ad-
dition foundation is underway and KELLEY
sections of steel rebar are sticking
up all over the place.
I've seen this before at numerous construction
sites and never paid much attention. What I had not
seen before however, were the many plastic drink-
ing bottles perched decoratively on the exposed
ends of the rebar rods.
I thought at first it was someone's idea of a joke.
Perhaps
some kids
had tres-
passed on
the site and
gotten cre-
ative with
the litter.
Then
I thought
the con-
struction
workers
them-

had been
consci-
entious

n o t .. ,
throw- .
ing lit-
ter on the ground and
had chosen instead to take the time to meticulously
place the upturned bottles on the rods themselves.
That didn't really make sense either. A construc-
tion site of all places likely has a bin for trash.
Then I let my imagination run to the fanciful
and concluded that someone on the site had con-
structed their personal version of a bottle tree to
keep evil spirits from causing mischief when they
were away. I liked this idea most of all.
I photographed the site and shared the image
with my co-worker Joel. He immediately came
to what sounded like the most logical conclusion
- the bottles were a safety measure.
An upright rebar rod could potentially present

I walked down to the library to have a construc-

I thought that was interesting too, because Flor-

It hasn't been so long ago that the library clock and

Adding more fiber optics for Internet


Recently-inkedNEFCOM deal designed to expand high-speed access
BY JOEL ADDINGTON COM's capacity limitless, Mr. Crews said
reporter(@bakercountypress.com it will be enough to accommodate growth


When the real estate market rebounds
and demand for Internet service starts
growing again in Baker County, local com-
munications entity NEFCOM intends to be
ready.
It recently finalized a deal with Dedi-
cated Fiber Systems (DFS), a Jacksonville-
based fiber-optic communications com-
pany, that will boost NEFCOM's ability
to offer high-speed Internet access to more
people during the coming years.
The local phone and Internet access pro-
vider signed a five-year contract with DFS
worth more than $600,000 on March 12.
It will allow NEFCOM to lease the use
of fiber-optic facilities being installed by
DFS from western Jacksonville to Baker
County.
NEFCOM currently buys bandwidth on
an AT&T-owned fiber-optic line to connect
its local fiber network to Jacksonville, but
capacity on it is limited, said the company's
Mike Crews.


Dedicated Fiber Systems (DFS) president Chuck
Nichols ki ', and NEFCOMI's Mike Crews inked
a five-year lease contract March 12 for the lo-
cal telecommunications company to use fiber-
optic infrastructure being installed by DFS and
its partner, Jacksonville Teleport, from western
Jacksonville into Macclenny.
PHOTO COURTESY OF CHUCK NICHOLS
"With this we'll be able to turn up band-
width as needed," he said.
That's because NEFCOM is leasing the
fiber line itself, not simply bandwidth on
someone else's line.
"We are the only company in the area
that offers this service," said DFS president
and Macclenny resident Chuck Nichols.
Although the project won't make NEF-


in the near term and for the foreseeable fu-
ture.
DFS and its partner, Jacksonville Tele-
port, which is also locally owned by Nich-
ols and others, plans to install the new fi-
ber-optic line during the next six months.
Fiber-optic lines essentially glass
strands about the size of a human air that
transmit light can carry much more
digital information than electric cable, tele-
phone lines or wireless service, and moves
it at much higher speeds.
"The new fiber optic facilities bring phe-
nomenal capacity and speed to this area's
communications," Mr. Nichols said. "It's a
huge technological step forward."
NEFCOM has built a local fiber-optic
network during the last few years. It cov-
ers four newly-constructed subdivisions
- Sands Pointe, Rolling Meadows, Heri-
tage Oaks and Cypress Pointe all in the
Macclenny area.


Man arrested for knife assault


An estranged boyfriend faces
multiple charges for allegedly
going to the residence of his
ex-girlfriend about midday on
March 26 and holding a pocket
knife to her neck before friends
urged him to leave the premises.
The girlfriend, Angela Ben-
nett, 18, reported the incident


Arrest after

2nd phoned

bomb threat
A male patient at the state
mental hospital in Macclenny
was hauled to jail on March 25
after telephoning a second bomb
threat to the Walmart Supercent-
er in less than 24 hours.
Andrew Pearce, 20, admitted
to both employees in Ward 34
at Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital and local deputies that he
made the calls that evacuated the
county's largest retail store late
the morning of March 24 and
then again the following mom-
ing about 6:30.
In both cases, employees and
customers were ushered out of
the building until fire and police
sounded the all-clear. In the first
instance, the evacuation lasted an
hour and a half, the second about
an hour.
Store employee Erin Whit-
ley said the person on the other
end of the phone line the second
morning yelled for everyone to
get out of the store.
Deputy Jerald Peterson said
Mr. Pearce, who had discussed
the threats with fellow patients
and workers on the ward, con-
fessed to both crimes second-
degree felonies. Hospital security
produced telephone records that
confirmed the calls were made
from the area where the suspect
is housed.
After the first incident, police
found pieces of paper with sev-
eral phone numbers, including
that of Walmart. Mr. Pearce said
he also called a lawyers' office
and a bank.
The patient was named in a
criminal complaint March 23
for allegedly throwing a radio
at employee Jalisa McDuffie of
Starke.
The victim told Deputy
Claude Hurley the incident was
unprovoked, and Mr. Pearce has
made similar attacks in the past,
saying "he is going to keep doing
it because he does not get into
trouble."
Ms. McDuffie was struck in
the back of thehe ad and sought
treatment at Fraser Hospital.


and said Kenneth Gainey, 21, of
Sanderson had been at her par-
ents' home off Sunshine Lane
south of Sanderson to pick up
a bed that belonged to him. She
said he accosted her with the
knife following an argument dur-
ing which he was told to leave,
then drove off eastbound on Mud
Lake Rd. in his Dodge pickup.
The vehicle was stopped
shortly after by Deputy Mike
Lagle, and Mr. Gainey admitted
being at the Bennett residence
but denied pulling the knife.
Cpl. Lagle noted he did not
find a knife on the suspect, and
three occupants of the pickup
claimed they did not see Mr.
Gainey accost Ms. Bennett with
it.
Frances Combs, 22, who lives
at the girlfriend's residence,
backed up her version of events.
Mr. Gainey was booked for
violating a domestic violence or-
der to stay away from Ms. Ben-
nett, and for aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon, a third-
degree felony.
In another case involving vio-
lation of a court order, Joshua
Geiger, 19, of Macclenny was
arrested after a deputy on patrol
spotted his vehicle parked next
to another in the darkened park-
ing lot of the former Macclenny
Products complex off South 6th
St.
Deputy Matt Sigers noticed
the vehicles about 8:45 pm on
March 26, and learned the sec-
ond one was occupied by Tiffany
Canaday, 18, also of Macclenny.


A judge had ordered Mr. Geiger
to stay away from her due to past
domestic violence.
The suspect told Deputy
Sigers he merely wanted to see
his child. Ms. Canaday said she
sought the order mostly to keep
the boyfriend's mother away
from her.
Sheila Zajkowski, 45, of
Macclenny was arrested late on
March 28 following an attack on
live-in boyfriend William Hub-
bard, 51, at their residence off
Brent Lane.
Deputy Sigers charged her
with domestic violence for strik-
ing the boyfriend with a large
stick, blows that resulted in a lac-
eration and bruising to his arm.
She is also charged with crimi-
nal mischief for using the stick
to break both a windshield and
door glass.
The boyfriend said Ms. Za-
jkowski had been drinking heav-
ily before the incident.
A daughter, 16, was arrested
the evening of March 24 follow-
ing an attack on her 41-year-old
father at their home on Stoddard
St. in Glen St. Mary.
Deputy Erik Deloach said the


two argued after the daughter
returned home late, and that she
began ransacking their residence
after slapping the father. She is
charged with domestic battery.
A 15-year-old Macclenny
youth faces a similar charge after
he allegedly attacked his sister,
age 13, in their vehicle the mom-
ing of March 27. The mother,
who was also in the vehicle, said
the incident occurred in a park-
ing lot off South 6th St.
Preston Baker, 18, of Taylor
was arrested for domestic vio-
lence battery on his father Ben-
nie, 60, the afternoon of March
27. The father told Deputy Jef-
frey Dawson his son struck and
kicked him following an argu-
ment over the son's alleged steal-
ing and use of the father's credit
cards.
The accused said he was de-
fending himself.


Complaint afier threats,


attack by grieving mother

A woman who initially declined to seek criminal charges against
the grieving mother of her dead boyfriend changed her mind after the
mother allegedly threatened to kill her.
Janell Perry, 32, told police that Nancy Moore, 44, of Jacksonville
telephoned her in Macclenny on March 28 and made the threats. She
then called the sheriff's department and filed a criminal complaint
against Ms. Moore for physically attacking her the previous day.
Late in the evening of March 27, Ms. Perry said Ms. Moore and a
man she identified as Thomas Slatery, 50, of Glen St. Mary came to
her residence on Linda St. and the accused threw a glass picture frame
at her, causing several glass cuts on her chest.
The victim told Deputy Claude Hurley that Ms. Moore then punched
her while she lay on the ground, yelling that the girlfriend killed her
son Gary Haggard, who died in a traffic accident in Lake County, FL
the previous night.
In other complaints involving battery, the state attorney's office will
decide whether charges are merited following an incident at the BP
station in downtown Macclenny the afternoon of March 29.
Store clerk William Collins, 30, of Glen called police after he was
allegedly attacked by customer Dillard Pettway, 27, of Macclenny.
The clerk told Deputy John Hardin that Mr. Pettway became irate
when his credit card was declined. The officer noted facial bruises,
which Mr. Collins said he received when attacked by Mr. Pettway after
the clerk went outside the store for a cigarette.
The accused then followed him back inside and struck him several
times. A surveillance tape will be reviewed.
Conflicting versions resulted in complaints against both parties
involved in a fracas in the parking lot of the Macclenny McDonald's
late on March 25. They were identified as Quentin Griffis, 27, of Mac-
clenny and Jeremy Lauramore, 26, of Glen St. Mary.

Subdued with pe]

Distraught woman was search


A distraught and overmedi-
cated Glen St. Mary woman was
hit with a two-second dose of
pepper spray when she became
a potential harm to herself in the
rear seat of a deputy's patrol car
the evening of March 25.
Kimberly McQuien, 41, had
earlier created a disturbance at
the Raiford Rd. Church on south
SR 121, and told Deputy Patrick
McGauley she was searching for
her child.
Ms. McQuien earlier that day
had been warned by police to
remain at her residence and not
leave to find the child.
The officer said she appeared
to be high on prescription medi-
cation and continued to be loud
and disruptive on the church
grounds before she was taken to
county jail. She admitted only to
taking Prozac.
Once at county jail, Ms. Mc-
Quien's behavior continued to
be erratic, and a small baggie of
Xanax pills was found in a room
where she was being processed
for booking. A jail nurse then ad-
vised she be checked out at the
Fraser Hospital emergency room,
where she broke free of physical
restraints and had to be subdued
while she was being examined.
Deputy McGauley said he
administered the spray when his
prisoner continued to resist and
would not exit his patrol car back
at the jail. She was charged with
disorderly conduct.
Several other persons were ar-
rested this past week for alcohol-
related offenses.


Deputy Claude Hurley said
Dustin Rhoden, 22, of Sanderson
was one of three males occupy-
ing a 1995 Pontiac parked in the
lot next to the Kangaroo conve-
nience store in downtown Mac-
clenny about 2:20 am on March
28.
The officer noted a liquor bot-
tle on the front floorboard, and
that Mr. Rhoden and the other
two appeared to be intoxicated.
Two small children were in the
rear seat, and the men said they
were awaiting their mother.
Mr. Rhoden resisted being
handcuffed and searched, and
cursed at the officer and others
on the scene.
He was booked for disorderly
intoxication, resisting without
violence in the parking lot, and
resisting with violence when he
got to county jail.
Tommy Phillips, 29, was
charged with disorderly intoxi-
cation after he drove recklessly
on North 8th St. near the Mac-
clenny ballfields the afternoon of
March 28.
Neighbors and parents at the
fields where Little League games
were in progress complained that
Mr. Phillips was speeding and
spinning the tires of his Mustang
on the pavement. Deputy Tony
Norman said he detected a strong
odor of alcohol when question-
ing the suspect, who then became
belligerent.
The deputy learned Mr. Phil-
lips' license has twice been sus-
pended for failure to pay fines.
The incident report, however,


er spray

for her child
does not indicate he was charged
with an offense related to that or
the fact that he had been driving.
Deputy Matt Riegel arrested
Brian Hasty, 22, of Jacksonville
for drunk driving shortly after
midnight on March 29.
The officer said he first ob-
served the driver in a 1994 Ford
Ranger exceeding the speed limit
on US 90 in east Macclenny. The
westbound truck turned abruptly
onto South 5th St. and acceler-
ated until the driver heeded the
officer's emergency lights near
the intersection with American
Way.
Mr. Hasty failed field sobriety
tests and his blood alcohol level
measured .132 at county jail.
He was also ticketed for going
60 in a 30 mph zone on South
5th.
Gary Markham, 50, of Mac-
clenny was jailed for disorderly
intoxication after he was found
staggering on W. Boulevard
about 2:20 am on March 29.
Deputy Hurley said he had
to swerve his patrol car to avoid
striking Mr. Markham near the
intersection with US 90. He also
noted the suspect had been in-
volved in a hit and run accident
about an hour earlier.

Warrantforfleeing man

A Macclenny man already wanted on warrants for selling drugs and
failure to appear in court is now also sought for assault on a county
deputy who attempted to arrest him the morning of March 29.
Willie Dempsey, 19, allegedly swung at Deputy John Hardin with
a closed fist as the officer attempted to prevent him from escaping
through a gap in a chain link fence behind a residence on South 9th
St.
The officer was on patrol about 8:40 when he spotted Mr. Dempsey,
who then took off running in the residential neighborhood. Deputy
Hardin was aware of the outstanding warrants, and said the suspect
twice spun away from him, the first time causing both of them to fall
on a large tree stump.
Mr. Dempsey spun away the second time and ran through the fence
toward Quail Lane. He dropped his cell phone in the process.
Deputy Hardin sustained scrapes on the forearm and wrist, and the
sheriff's department issued a warrant for resisting arrest with violence,
a third-degree felony, and assault on an officer.
In another arrest where the deputy was aware of the suspect's past
record, Cody Guernsey, 27, of Macclenny was stopped on Interstate
10 near Glen St. Mary late on March 25 and arrested for driving on a
suspended license.
Deputy Chris Walker said he knew of Mr. Guernsey's license status
when he spotted the suspect at the Citgo station near I-10 and CR 125
about 11:00. Mr. Guernsey then drove off in a 1994 Buick heading
westbound on the interstate.
The suspensions are for failure to pay fines.
Two men already in county jail were re-arrested on outstanding
warrants recently.
Terry Jones, 24, of Macclenny will be held for Clay County on
warrants for burglary and petty theft.
Tommy Allbright, 45, of Macclenny is wanted in Duval County
for a DUI accident with property damage.

Hooded, masked man arrested at store


Alarmed Walmart employees


call police; shotgun, pot seized


A Jacksonville man who en-
tered the Macclenny Walmart
wearing a hooded sweatshirt that
concealed his face was arrested
late on March 27, along with two
juvenile males who were in his
company.
Responding officers located
Caleb Poole, 18, leaving the store
about 10:30, and he initially de-
nied entering the building with
the hood up and front zipped
closed to conceal everything but
his eyes. Mr. Poole said he and
a 14-year-old male juvenile were
in the store to purchase items for
a camping trip, but neither had
any money.
Deputies Matt Riegel and Erik
Deloach, along with Lt. Billy
Miller, then went to the suspects'
car parked in the lot outside, and
ordered three more juveniles to


exit it when the officers spotted
a .12 gauge shotgun in the vehi-
cle's interior.
One of the youths, a 16-year
old male, appeared to be chew-
ing on a substance and spit out
a small amount of marijuana. He
also had the drug in a wadded
up piece of paper, and he was
booked for misdemeanor posses-
sion.
All the juveniles were also
from Jacksonville.
The youth who was with
Mr. Poole when they exited the
store via the north entrance was
charged with resisting police
by initially giving them a false

teacher training for the Baker
County School District and was
visiting all the schools to intro-
duce myself. Then, on impulse,
I asked if there were any jobs
available."
Lou Ann Williams, princi-
pal of Macclenny Elementary,
thought she recognized some-
thing special in the would-be
substitute and decided to act on
her instinct. Other teachers and
administrators were called in to
meet and talk with the young
woman. Ms. West was offered a
job as a teacher that same day.
"I was amazed at how it all
happened. I believe that God tru-
ly does lead people to the place
where they should be at the right
time they should be there," she
said.
Ms. West was hired under
full time substitute status and
went into on-the-job training in
the classroom. She laughs about
it now, but says it was hard.
"I was overwhelmed the first
two weeks, but my husband Josh
was extremely supportive," she
said. "He told me if I could man-
age a bunch of male construction
workers then I should be able to
handle a classroom of kids just
fine."
Soon, everything began to
fall into place. She was paired
with an experienced peer teacher
and had other teachers, includ-
ing 2008 District Teacher of the
Year Tami Harvey, as mentors.
She also worked on earning her
teaching certification that first
year.
"Teachers in this district share
a lot with each other ideas,
techniques, methods. Everyone
is so willing to help and the ad-
ministrators sincerely want to
see us succeed," she said.
The new teacher tackled her
subjects head on and quickly
mastered the rudiments of in-
structing her first graders in


reading/language arts, math, sci-
ence and social studies. Her ex-
perience has shown her that all
children in a classroom are ca-
pable of learning even if they're
at different levels. Part of her job
is recognizing and providing les-
sons appropriate to their level of
performance while stimulating
them to strive to achieve even
further.
The science instruction is her
favorite and she admits it's chal-
lenging.
"Teaching a subject like sci-
ence to first graders who are
still learning to read and write
involves a different approach
than what was used in the past,"
she said.
At the end of her second year,
Ms. West learned that she would
be having an autistic child in her
class the next fall. The young
teacher took it upon herself to
make inroads with the child and
family before that time.
"I felt that it would help the
child make an easier transition
if I was already a familiar face,"
she said.
She contacted the family and
began to visit them. Her initia-
tive paid off and today her spe-
cial student is thriving in the
classroom.
"That child is making As and
Bs and I couldn't be happier,"
she said.
The first-hand experience
with this student introduced
and enlightened Ms. West to the
realm of autism. She has since
become a passionate advocate
for autism awareness.
Ms. West's main goal for the
future is to earn her master's
degree in education. She counts
teaching as her hobby as well as
her career. She spends her free
time just doing simple, relaxing
things like reading for pleasure.
"I love to read. Josh and I
are a bit old-fashioned. We love
just spending time at home. We
hang out, play cards simple

Title insurance a cents could lose

Already dealing with slow business from an
abysmal real estate market, local title insurance
agents are facing another challenge, too a pro-
posal in the state legislature to
eliminate their share of insurance c
premiums. The system

like title searches, closings and cou- much mor

coverage itself, which is typically
a portion of the one-time premium
paid to the company underwriting the policy.
For instance, Baker Title and Escrow in Mac-
clenny retains 30 percent of the premiums it col-
lects, said Tina Smith, one of the agency's brokers.
When asked if the proposed legislation could
put Baker Title out of business, she said, "It could,
if they were to push it."

"I'd prefer to get those recommendations back

Savings, thrift stressed to kids


at First Federal's weekend event


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The bank is one place most
people would never expect to
find a large group of kids on a
Saturday morning.
Yet, that was just the place
some enterprising and thrifty
Baker County children spent
their favorite morning of the
week.
First Federal Bank held a
Student Savers Account event
March 28 to help promote the
habit of saving money and intro-
duce youth under the age of 18
to the practice of banking.
"The bank wants to help
young people develop good sav-
ing habits and put a program in
place for them. They earn inter-
est and get their own bank state-
ment each month," said Pam
Dennis, a First Federal employ-
ee from Clay County who came
out to help with the event.
Fun activities were part of
the program, including a bounce
house, magnet dart game and
go-fish pond. The Baker County
sheriff's department delivered
coloring books and printed ma-
terials that helped kids under-
stand the role their organization
plays in the community.
The Macclenny Fire Depart-
ment gave tours of one of its fire
trucks.
Snacks and treats, including


popcorn, were in abundance.
Kids received stuffed animals
and signed up to win iPod Shuf-
fles with iTunes gift cards and a
digital camera.
The practice of saving money
was the primary focus, however,
and nearly 30 youths from in-
fants to high school age opened
accounts. The Student Saver ac-
counts usually require a $5 min-
imum to open, but during the
event coupons were available that
waived that requirement. The
coupon could also be redeemed
for a bag of goodies. There are
no monthly service charges and
interest can be earned on bal-
ances as low as $5.
Some of the attendees, how-
ever, certainly did have their
own money. Three-year-old Jus-
tin Broome sat across the desk
from finance specialist Becky
Brown as she prepared his ap-
plication. When the time came,
he proudly handed over his big
bucks. Another employee, Lora
Baglin, spent a good 15 minutes
fishing additional money out of
Justin's bank, which he had also
brought in.
"He had a ton of coins," she
said, laughing.
"We've helped Justin save all
his money from birthdays and
Christmas holidays for three
years," said the boy's mother,
Melissa Thompson. 'And he has


Color erupts in Fowler's Yard ofMonth...
When arriving at Sam and Jackie Fowler's home on Shelly Lane, you enjoy the front
fence graced with white wisteria and a turn into the gate reveals azaleas spilling
over into the driveway. The color doesn't stop there -just to the left is a small "or-
chard" of Bradford pears in full bloom. Color is the theme of the Fowler's yard
with something blooming all year round. Rows of large crepe myrtles border the
property line and perennials and annuals too abundant to name are everywhere in
the yard. Plus, in summertime there's
always a few fresh vegetables from the
cottage garden in back. For more in-
formation on Yard of the Month, or the

Sisters Emily and Susan Re-

said.

Maci and Megan on either side.
She asked them questions as she

money for a while, especially

Baker County Chamber of
Commerce members were treat-
ed to some inside marketing tips
by Dr. Sheri Carder at the orga-
nization's quarterly Lunch and
Learn meeting March 25.
Ms. Carder is a professor of
marketing and management at
Lake City Community College
and the author of 25 WOW! Tips
for mnarkeling on a shoestring.
Attendees viewed a Pow-
erpoint presentation showing
clever and effective advertising
ideas and publicity events from
different companies and organi-
zations.
Referring to her subject as
"Gorilla Marketing" (as in go-
rilla warfare), Ms. Carder shared
established and less utilized ways
for small businesses to promote
themselves, their services and
products.
A main point she drove home
is the importance of a Web site.
"Even if it's just a site for in-
formation such as address, oper-
ating hours, etc., it is important
for a business to have a Web
presence," she said.
She urged business owners to
practice "due diligence" when
registering and purchasing their
domain names for a Web site and
made several recommendations.
V Make sure the name is not
being used by someone else or
is too similar to another. Not do-
ing so can result in lawsuits or
being put in the position of hav-
ing to buy an already established
name. It can also create an un-
desirable listing position when
potential clients search the web
for your business.
V Small businesses should
make a point of getting them-
selves listed on other company
Web sites, especially those pro-
viding business information for
their local area such as news-
papers, city and county offices,
chamber of commerce, indus-
trial development, etc.
V To counter the negative ef-
fects of SPAM, a business should
build an e-mail advertising list
from its in-store customers so
it can reach them all with a few
keystrokes.

Dr. Carder speaks al
site address on all advertising,
and consider using it as part of
your logo.
Ms. Carder recommended
the viability of cable advertis-
ing because it is generally af-
fordable and targeted at specific
audiences. Cable is usually the
only TV advertising affordable
enough for small businesses.
Radio should not be discounted
either.
She also talked about not
overlooking the effectiveness of
old standbys such as calendars
or T-shirts and hats featuring
emblems, slogans and logos.
"I think calendars are a great
way to get your name out in front
of the public. If someone is using
your calendar, your company's
name is in front of them for an
entire year."
She also suggested giveaway
items as promoting tools. These
advertising specialities should
be useful and relevant to a busi-
ness. Ms. Carder especially likes
pens. In addition to making them
available at events and to walk-
up customers, business persons

"Sissy's Song"
So young I just don't know
why, ;h/,g, happen half the time
without reason, without rhyme.
Lovely, sweet young woman,
daughter, wife and mother.
Makes no sense to me, I just
have to believe. Loved ones she
left behind, just trying to survive
and understand the why. Feel-
ing so lost inside, anger shot
straight at God. Then asking for
His love. Empty with disbelief,
just hoping that maybe... It's
hard to say goodbye, her picture
in my mind will always be of
times I'll cherish and I won't cry
'cause she flew up to Heaven on
the wings of angels by the clouds
and stars and passed where no
one sees. And she walks with Je-
sus and her loved ones -i ,,I/I//
and I know she 's smiling saying,
"Don't worry 'bout me ".

Ethan Munson attempts his clean and jerk.


Nine lifters to state qualifier


This past Friday the BCHS
gym was a beehive of activity
as Coach Bobby Johns hosted
a weight lifting state qualifier.
Over 20 schools brought lifters,
all vying for a spot at the state
championships.
Nine Wildcat lifters earned au-
tomatic qualification to the final
qualifier on Saturday, April 11 at
the BCHS gym. Though Coach
Johns was happy the nine made
it through to the state finals, it
was nowhere near the number of
qualifiers he had hoped for.
Ryan Young, Greg Williams,
Darvin Ruise, Thomas Braddy
and Ethan Munson placed first in
their respective weight classes.
"Some of their totals were not
their best," said Johns, "yet they
did what was necessary to make
the finals."
Coach Johns was particularly
encouraged by Ruise and Mun-
son. Ruise had his best day ever
as a lifter with a solid 590 pound
total and Munson had a solid 775
total. Greg Williams, coming off
a chest injury, battled to his best
day ever with a 645-pound total.
Brandon Tuten, Mardreakus


Ford, William Wheeler and Har-
old Moore all placed second
in their weight classes and had
some solid lifts. Tuten, a fresh-
man in the 119-pound weight
class, posted a 195-pound clean
and jerk. Moore and Williams
had an outstanding day in the
183 class with two easy 315-
pound clean and jerks.
"Most teams would kill
to have one 600-plus lifter in
the 183 class and we are fortu-
nate enough to have two," said
Coach Johns. "We are missing
the leadership of senior Hank
Farmer, who has missed almost
three weeks with a minor back
injury. We are optimistic that
Hank will be back for the quali-
fier, but time is running short."
The remainder of the Wildcat
lifters failed to earn an automatic
berth in the finals and will have
to try again at the next qualifier
on Monday, April 1 at 2:00.
"These young men will have
a chance to redeem themselves
at that meet and earn that place
in the finals we are looking for. If
we do not get all 15 of our lifters
in the finals I will be very disap-


Denzel Mack begins his lift.
pointed," said the coach.
This Thursday, the Wild-
cats will host Trinity Christian
and Union County at BCHS. The
meet begins at 3:00.
"This is a big meet for us since
it will be the final regular sea-
son meet for the Cats as we will
spend the next month preparing
for the state meet. Thanks to all
of the great fans who came out
last Friday and supported us as
we tried to continue our journey
to another state championship."


Tennis falls

to Suwance,

rebounds

vs. Hilliard
The BCHS boys' and girls'
tennis teams were swept by a
strong Suwannee High School
squad in Live Oak on March 23
as the Bulldogs' baseline prow-
ess made the players run after the
tennis ball, setting up the victors
for winning shots.
"We gave too many points
away with hitting the ball into
the net," said Coach Chris Ar-
moreda. "We have to work at be-
ing more consistent with our hit-
ting. It seems like the players try
to hit a winning shot every time.
We do not want to give points
away with unforced errors; we
want the opposing team to earn
their points."
The Wildcats had a much
more successful effort against
the Hilliard Flashes on Thursday
in Hilliard. The Cats rebounded
from the Suwannee loss with a
4-3 win for the boys and a 5-2
victory for the girls.
The results:
Boys' first seed, Lew Boyette
(Win) 8-6; second seed, Spen-
cer Norman-Gerard (Loss) 8-6;
third seed, Corey Cavannaugh
(loss) 3-8; fourth seed, Spencer
Brunnette (Win) 8-0; fifth seed,
Thomas Swartz (Win) 8-6.

Clay halts Cats' unbeaten streak


The Wildcat baseball team
lost its first game of the season
March 24 in a 6-5 shocker to
Clay County. The Cats defense
got the best of them as they com-
mitted more errors in one game
than they do in a couple weeks
of play.
Cats traveled to Bradford on
March 23 and beat the Tornadoes
10-4, pounding out six doubles
in the game. Travis Tyson, Chase
Bennett, Chad Schroeer, Cory
Elasik, Klate Duval and Chris
Waddell all had doubles to spark
the offense.
Chris Waddell got the win on
the mound in relief of Cameron
Crews.
"It was raining and not ideal
conditions but we did what we
had to do to take care of that
other team," said Coach John
Staples.
The Cats then traveled to Clay
and came home with their first
loss of the season. Baker High
committed an uncharacteristic
five errors in the 6-5 loss. Cory
Elasik got his first home run of
the season.
You can't beat anybody
making five errors," observed
Coach Staples. "I was amazed
they only beat us by one run. We

have to have nine guys focused
on baseball to be successful."
The Cats have a week off be-
fore traveling to the Fernandina
tournament Wednesday and a
return district match-up at home


against Clay, Thursday, April 9.
"We are going to use this
week to rest some arms, battle
for some jobs, and condition like
we are training for an Olympic
marathon," said the coach.

Close loss to Lake City


The Lady Wildcat softball
team split this week in diamond
action, losing a stunner to Co-
lumbia High by one run and re-
bounding by pounding district
foe Bradford County by seven
runs.
The Cats traveled to Lake
City on March 24 and lost a 4-
3 thriller to the Tigers in extra
innings. Both teams were very
evenly matched on the night with
the Tigers giving up 11 hits and
the Wildcats' 10.
The Wildcats opened scoring
with an exciting and rare play.
Ashley Holton singled and was
batted forward to third. She then
caught the pitcher napping and
stole home to put the Wildcats
on the scoreboard.
The Tigers answered with
a run in the first and one in the
second. BCHS tied the game in
the top of the third with another
run from Holton, but Columbia
added two more in the third to
regain the lead.
Holton continued to thwart


the Tigers with a solo home run
in the fifth. Kristen Wilkinson
doubled and Haley Crews ran for
her and scored to tie the game.
The game remained tied until
the 10th inning, when CHS man-
aged a single run for the win.
The Wildcats took their re-
venge on district rivals Bradford
County in Starke on Friday, al-
lowing just three hits and win-
ning 8-1.
The Wildcats got on the score-
board first with a first inning run
by Ashley Curry. They went up
by five in the third when Ashley
Tracy, Holton, Wilkinson and
Cami Craig scored.
Bradford got one back in the
fourth, but BCHS put the game
out of reach with three runs in
the top of the sixth. Krista Smith,
Curry and Holton scored.
The Cats travel to a tourna-
ment at Brooksville Central High
this weekend before returning to
host Clay County on Tuesday at
6:00 pm.
