ers wonder if she was going to
be investigated by law enforce-
ment officials over somepossible
wrongdoing.
Since I had some time on my
hands and was naturally a little
curious, I did some digging of
my own and came up with the
real reason that the governorre
signed her post.
Sources close to the governor
have reported that while out on
the campaign trail that the can
didate blew off steam by visiting
karaoke bars around the country.
She discovered a hitherto un
known talent for signing country
music.
That's right, the governor re-
signed her post to start her own
contemporary country band -
Sarah Palm and the Mavericks.
She already has recorded several
potential hits such as "Snowmo-
bile to Hell," "Bailout my Heart,"
and "On the Road to Washington
Again."
Insiders claim the band
sounds like across between Mar-
tina McBride and Rascal Flats,
and though the governor's voice
is still developing, they'll be ready
to debut at this year's Calgary
Stampede.
The only concern that Gov.
Palmn seems to have is that for-

SEX CRIMES


Says she was raped
The sheriffs department is looking into a second allegation of rape, this one dunng the
late hours of July 9 or early the next day and involving an estranged couple.
The alleged victim, 22, and from the St. George, Ga. area, told police her 34 year-old ex-
boyfnend and two others had sex with her mn a vehicle parked on a dirt road. The woman
told Deputy Patrick McGauley that the boyfriend drove her back to her mother's in Jack-
sonville after the attacks and threatened her if she reported the incident.
The alleged victim said she and the accused, with whom she has a child, went together
toMac's Liquors in Macclennyand after two dnnks that puther "out of it" shewent outside
to her vehicle to sleep. She awakened when assaulted by the boyfriend, and also submitted
to forcible sex by two other males.
The woman also said she recalls the boyfriend smoking crack during the incident.
The boyfriend then drove the other suspects to the Club 229 north of Sanderson. She
described them as black men one wearing dreadlocks, about 6'1" wearing a plaid shirt
and the other heavy set at 5'9" and wearing a shirt with a "shiny" design.
The men took her clothing and a cellphone, the victim says, and she noted the voice on
the other end when she later called her number said, "Ha Ha," and called her a derogatory
name.
Deputy McGauley said a review of surveillance tapes at Mac's that evening appears to
show the couple arriving and leaving the premises twice before 9:30.
An employee at Mac's said he believes he spotted the victim dancing on a pool table that
evening.
The woman was taken to the Rape Crisis Center in Jacksonville by her mother. Initial
attempts to contact the boyfriend or learn the identity of the other alleged assailants were
unsuccessful.

JSO officer fights

decision to fire him
A Jacksonville policeman who lives in Macclenny vows he'll fight
Sheriff John Rutherford's decision last week to fire him over the
wounding of an unarmed man who fled from a westside residence in
the direction of the officer's partner.
The use of force investigation has been ongoing since late October,
2oo8 when Officer Ryan Fraser shot and wounded Jerrick Hall, 20,
after going to the residence on a burglary call. Mr. Hall was initially
charged in the incident but the complamt was dropped after the renter,
who was injail at the time, said he knew that several people were at the
residence and didn't mind.
Police had been called there by the property owner, who was con-
cerned the residence was being used as a crack house.
Officer Fraser, 48, and a six year member of the force, can still keep
his job if he survives a mediation board inquiry and another by a civil
service board. In the meantime, he has been on desk duty.
The officer saidMr. Hall climbed through a window at the rear of the
residence and first lunged toward him, changing directions when the
officer, with his service revolver drawn, ordered him to stop.
He says the suspect's hands were in a waistband as if he had a pistol,
and he fired twice at him feanng Mr. Hall would run toward his female
partner at the front of the house. Bullets struck him twice in the back
and he has since recovered.
Officer Fraser has received several commendations during his ten
ure at JSO, including one for savang a person's hlife
Prior to joinmg the Jacksonville force, he was a Baker County deputy
forfouryears.

City imposes building moratorium


With little discussion, the
Macclenny City Commission
placed a moratorium on any


the lack of sidewalks within the
neighborhood.
The partially built subdivision
is owned by Kendale Land Devel-
opment of Jacksonville, which


compounded flooding in the m-
mediate area for more than a
year.
The developer has also been
slow to add sidewalks to the
subdivision and residents have
expressed concern for the safety
of school children walking to and
from the school bus stop at the


East and North boulevards.
The resolution passed to in-
stitute the moratorium on new
building permits was approved
unanimously under emergency
business and was not advertised
publiclybeforehand.
Nobody from Kendale Devel-
opment was present dunng the
commission's meeting the eve
rang of July 14
Assistant City Manager Roger
Yarborough said the developer
has cited financial hardships as
the reason why the improve-
ments haven't been completed.
He added that a plan for im-
proving the drainage system
was developed earlier this year
through cooperation with Kend-
ale and the St. Johns River Water
Management District, but it was
never Implemented.
Only about 6o percent of the

cant. In the last year, only o10
permits have been issued for the
subdivision.
The city commission also ad
opted a tentative property tax
rate dunng its monthly meeting
that would increase revenues by
roughly $100ooooo for the coming
fiscalyear.
The rate, $3.85 per $1000 of
taxable property value, would
meanahomewithataxablevalue
of $1oo,ooo would pay $385 in
cityproperty taxes.
Though the tentative rate rep-
resents a tax increase, commis-


sioners said they hope to lower
it dunng budget hearings set to
begin next month.
The states requires the board
adopt a budget for the 2009-10
fiscal year and accompanying
property tax rate by September
30.
City Manager Gerald Dopson
recommended a slightly lower
tax rate at $3.50 per $1oo00,000
of taxable property value, which
would generate about $795,oo000,
or $20,000 more than the 2008-
09 fiscal year.
"Why don't we go with the big
one and then drop back," said
Commissioner Vernon Bennett.
According to city staff, the
board can lower the tentative
property tax rate when adopting
the final budget but it cannot
raise it.

"This leaves us some room to
work with," added Commissioner
Phil Rhoden.

proved on first reading an or

The new rules are identical to
those being used by Baker Coun-

The ordinance outlines a pro-
cedurefor declanng animals dan-
gerous, a decision that's made
minitiallyby city animal control.
Code enforcement officer Joy
Chapman said animals are deter
mined dangerous if they injure
a person or two pets while away
from their owners property.
Animal owners can request a

rehte declaration, however;
requires owners meet a long list
of demands that include keep
ming the animal secure, registered
with animal control and tagged
as a dangerous animal.
If the requirements aren't met,
the city can confiscate the animal
and kill it within 10 days of noti
flying the owner.
If a violent attack takes place,


the animal can also be immedi-
ately confiscated.

Prepping for national Angus show


It's all about grooming, training hefty animals


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES

When Katelyn Lankford
got involved in FFA her fresh-
man year at Baker County High


would enter a Black Angus cow,
born and raised on her parent's
farm, in the National Junior An
gus Show.
Ms. Lankford, who graduated
from Baker County High School
last May, is about to achieve that
goal.
The 2009 National Junior An-
gus Show takes place July_19-25


can Angus Association, ill be
there before the judges, showing
a bull and a heifer that she has
raised.
The National Junior Angus
Show is the largest single-breed
registered beef cattle show in
the world with a membership of
more than 7000 in the United
States and Canada. Ms. Lankford
will be one of 557 young Angus
breeders from 31 states.
For the last six months, Ms.
Lankford has worked to halter
tram her cows so theywill handle
well in the ring. For the three
months pnor to the show, extra
care and attention have gone into
their feeding and grooming.
In the early morning hours
of July 13, Ms. Lankford is out
at the barns behind her parent's
home north of Maclenny just
off SR 121. With less than a week
before the nationals, attention to
her show cows has stepped up.
Nine month old Elrod, a
magnificently handsome bull
stands on a cement platform, his
considerable bulk temporarily
restrained in a grooming chute.
The chute's metal frame keeps
the animal stationary while he
is given a bath. For the last three

stance for the judges by using
a show stick to maneuver his
hooves into position.
A show stick is a long, slender
metal rod with a hook at one end.
The hooked end is placed be
tween the cloven part of the hoof
and gentle nudges encourage the
bull to step into the proper posi
tion.
Ms. Lankford moved to Mac-

The 'cow girl' started off with
commercial steers, later choos
ing to work with Black Angus,
a breed not seen much in Baker
County at that time. Since join


ing FFA four years ago, she has
shown her Angus cows at least
three times a year and almost al
ways at the Baker County fair and
the Jacksonville fair.
"I love the fairs," she said.
"People watching is as entertain
ing as dealing with the animals.
You meet people who have never
even seen a real cowbefore. hey
ask you questions like 'how can
you tell if a cow is male or fe
male?' and they're senous."
Ms. Lankford will be starting
school this fall at the Art Institute
of Jacksonville. There, she plans
to pursue her other love, televi-
sion production. Her ultimate
goal is to combine her interests in
a way that will intertwine televi-
sion with Angus production and
benefit another generation of
young cattle breeders. She hopes
to produce shows thatwill appear
on RFD TV Channel 345, the 24-
hour station with programming

Dunringthe summer months when
it can get very hot, their appetite
can become suppressed. Fans in
their stalls keep them comfort
able and when they are cooler
they tend to eat more. Along
with hay, Bull Test feed, a special
formula containing everything
needed for optimuml health, is
given in controlled amounts.


"Show bulls are judged for
breeding. You don't want them
tolook sunken in. Their physique
needs to look as full, healthy and
masculine as possible. Controlled
feeding helps attain that," she
said.
How bulls handle in the nng,
their stance and posture are also
important. Just a gentle tug from
the lead attached to the brass nng

Workshop August 6 on native plants


ALICIA LAMBORN
HORTICULTURE AGENT


Plants that are easy to grow
and maintain are highly desired
for any landscape, and native
plants can be both practical and
attractive choices to hliven up any
outdoor space. Because native
plants are adapted to the climate
and soil conditions of a given
area, their use in landscaping
can (but not always) decrease
maintenance. Some plants have
specific growth requirements
while others thnve under a van-
ety of environmental conditions.
Consider the native habitat of a
plant before planting to be sure
that you can provide a similar
environment.
When searching for native
plants, remember that under
Florida's Plant Protection Law,
it is unlawful to destroy, injure,
harvest, collect, pick or remove
any plants covered by the law
without pnor written permission
from the landowner or legal oc-
cupant of the land. Check with
local nurseries and nurseries
throughout the state that special-
ize in native plants.
While some native species
maybe hardto find, there are still
plenty of under -utilized plants
that are accessible to gardeners.
Someexamples: American Beau-
tyberry (Callicarpa amencana) is
a small to medium-sized decidu-
ous shrub that's great for shadier
areas It bears small pinkish or
purphlish flowers in spring and
beautiful amethyst-purple ber-
nes in fall. Butterflies are drawn
to the flowers, and the bernes
make this shrub one of the best
attractants for birds.
Cherokee Bean (Erythrina
herbacea), also called Coralbean,


is another attractive deciduous orwetareas, butwillgrowfinein

also withstand harsh conditions
and severe insect attacks by go

Cinnamon Fern (Osmunda

long, somewhat spreading fronds
that form a symmetrical clump.
There are separate fertile fronds

eaten by deer and other animals
and although not many people
eat them, they can be boiled and
eaten.
River Birch (Betula mgra) is
a fast growing, multi stemmed
deciduous tree. This tree grows
naturally along the banks of nv
ers and streams tolerating moist


such light shade that grass will
continue to thrive beneath.
You may already know and
appreciate some native plants,
but there are many native plants
that are unknown and under uti
lihzed in our landscapes. If you are
new to the area, having trouble
deciding what to plant or just
want to learn more about Florda
native, Flonda-fnendly, and un-
der-utilized plants that thnve in
Baker County, plan to attend the
workshop on Florida-Fnendly
Landscape Plants next month on
Thursday, August 6 at 3 :oo pm.
The class will be held at the
extension office on US 90 west
in Macclenny and is free. Please
register for the class no later
than Wednesday, August 5th by

after 16-

Longtime Army reservist and
now retired National Guards-

a Meritorious Service Medal is
a bit tardy but appreciated
nonetheless.
"They put in for it about 16
years ago and say the paperwork
got lost you know how the
Army is," he says with a chuckle,
explaining that a fellow master
sergeant who he had served with
pushed the Army to re-open the
request a full three years ago.
The medal the second high
est attainable during peacetime
-was presented to Mr. Morgan
by Congressman Ander Cren
shaw during a USO luncheon at
Jacksonville NAS on June 30.
Master Sgt. Jim Penmngton, who
along with Mr. Crenshaw was
pivotal in securing the honor,
was also on hand.
Mr. Morgan, 71, qualified for
the medal because of the years he
spent as a senior chief instructor
inthe areas of transporting mate
nel, chemicals and field medical
supplies.
"I guess I taught on just about
every Army base in the country

Even though things were re-
allybad at his house, Tommywas
terrified when people took him
away. They told him he needed
to be in a safe place but they
separated him from his siblings,
took him to strange house in a
neighborhood he didn't know,
and said he would be going to a
new school.
Through no fault of their own,
some children are separated
from their families and all they
are familiar with because of ne-
glect and abuse. It's a nightmare
for them, and they should not
have to be alone in this process.
The overburdened child welfare
system cannot always give thor-
ough, detailed attention to each
child who comes before them.
Enter the Guardian ad Litemn
Program. The court appoints a
Guardian ad Litemn to represent
the best interest of neglected and


abused children while they are in
the court system. The guardian
helps them understand what is
going on and assures the chil-
dren don't get lost in the system.
The program depends heavily on
volunteers. In Baker, Bradford
and Union counties alone, there
are over 90 children in the court
system.
Guardians serve as fact find-
ers for judge, make recommen-
dations and speak for the child
in court, and act as a "watchdog"
for the cluhild throughout the case,
ensuring it is brought to a swift
and appropriate conclusion.
They monitor and investigate not
only how the children are doing
but what progress the parents are
making.
Guardians follow their chil-
dren through the dependency
process until the case is closed
and they go back to their fami

I' ve got to think that when
you judge athletes and try
to choose who are among
the best overall in the world,
Lance Armstrong's name has
to be near the top.
The 37-year-old cyclist
took time off from the sport
then came back and suffered
a broken collar bone, but still
has managed to be in conten-
tion in the Tour de France, the
premier event in cycling.
For three weeks cyclists tour

the south to the mountains of

Armstrong wasn't given
much of a chance in this year's
tour. But with a week left, the
American is in third place,
just minutes off the lead. With
a tough week to go, however,
the event is playing into Arm-
strong's hands.
Armstrong is a machine.
His work rate is incredible


and he is one of the few rac-
ers on the tour who is just as
good in the mountains as on
the flats.

Marcin Gortat is a very

Who the heck is Marcin
Gortat, you ask? No he's not

ever heard of.
He's some Polish NBA
player that nobody ever heard
of that the Orlando Magic just


gave a $34 million contract
to on Monday. Gortat backs
up Dwight Howard and plays
only about 12 minutes a game.
He averages just 3.8 points
and 4.5 rebounds a game.

Summer

busy for

Staples'

Wildcats
It may be the All Star break
for the major leaguers, but for
the BCHS Wildcat baseball team
there hasn't been much of a break
this summer. John Staples' Cats
have been hard at work all sum-
mer long, playing in a tourna
ment that will finish up later this
week and trying to fill some big
holes left by graduation.
The Cats are 10-1-2 so far in
the tournament and Staples has
seen a lot of improvement in his
squad.
"Though the rain has inter-
fered with us a lot we've got a
chance to get a look at kids and
some of them have really stepped
up," said Staples.
He's particularly encouraged
with the play of Scooter Gross
at first base and Josh Griffis at
pitcher.
"Josh has the potential of be-
ing a front-line pitcher," said
Staples. Chns Waddell, who per
formed so well on the mound as
freshman, is playing elite travel
ball with a team from Tampa Bay
and hasn't been available this
summer. Staples is philosophical
about the absence of one of his
top hurlers. "Sometimes it's good
for them to get away and play for
somebody else for a while."
There are presently four posi-
tions that are unsettled because

chance that some of these guys
might even unseat some of the
veterans. It's all about getting
kids in the right spots."
After the tournament ends
this weekend, the baseball team
will take some time off and won't
come back together until October
1st.
