Heavy damage at feed store


A short is

suspected

as cause
A fire believed started by an
electrical short did extensive smoke
and heat damage to the interior of
Bennett's Feed, Farm and Pet Cen-
ter on US 90 in west Macclenny the
evening of August 3.
Most of the store's inventory of
animals including parrots, rabbits,
hamsters and parakeets perished
amid the smothering smoke and
heat that resulted from the fire that
likely smouldered inside the store
before firemen from both Macclen-
ny and the county started arriving
about 9:14. The initial alarm went
out about three minutes
earlier.
"We estimate the
temperature inside was
around 800 degrees,
and up near the roof
about 1000 degrees,"
said Macclenny Chief
Daniel Dugger. "They'll
be checking it this week
for structural damage
that often occurs when
it gets that hot."
The hardware and
feed store on the south
side of 90 near the west
city limits is metal in
structure.
Chief Dugger said a
state fire marshal believes a short in one of the large fish tanks that
lined the west wall of the building may be the cause. Heat and fire
damage along that wall was intense, and flames were shooting out the
exterior on that side when fire and rescue crews arrived.
Tropical and other fish in the tanks directly south of the flash point
survived the heat. A cage with cockatiel birds was situated on the front
porch, and firemen carried it and several birds to safety.
As of midday Tuesday, the sheriffs department was looking into a
claim by an individual earlier that day that he set the fire because he

The fire chief estimated smoke and heat daiimage to the

by the intense heat.
Shortly after the first of several dozen firefighters arrived and as-
sessed the situation, the county's chief Richard Dolan issued an all-
county call for assistance. In addition to the city's two ladder trucks,
the county sent two more pumper engines and two tanker trucks.

Despite dwindling revenue

no layoffs are included in the
budget and most salary totals
remain largely unchanged.
Other cuts, however, like
the elimination of a more than
$1oo,ooo donation to the
Council on Aging, could impact
local community groups con-

"It's the difference between

The council receives most of
its $1.1 million annual budget
from state and federal agen-
cies that require local match-

$109,227 allocation this year
helped to cover, she said.

Prefers 'market-oriented' reform


JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
About a dozen local business
owners voiced largely unani-
mous opposition to health care
reforms proposed by House
Democrats during a roundtable
discussion with Congressman
Ander Crenshaw the morning
of August 4.
The Jacksonville Republican
said he recognizes the need for
changes to increase access to
health care, reduce its cost and
maintain high-quality care; but
he favors more "market-orient-
ed" reforms over a government-
run health insurance program.

population has no health in-
surance, according to the lat-
est statistics from the Health
Planning Council of Northeast
Florida, and Mr. Crenshaw said
those who truly can't afford it
and earn too much to qualify for
Medicaid or Medicare should
receive a tax credit to purchase


coverage from a private insur-
er.
"We don't want to blow up
the whole system," he told the
group, which met at the Cham-
ber of Commerce in downtown
Macclenny for about an hour
and a half.
Mr. Crenshaw fears the


Democrats' proposal for a gov-
ernment-sponsored insurance
plan could also drive private in-
surers out of business in as little
as five years, leaving everyone
with only one option for health
insurance.
"It's just a matter of time,"
agreed Jack Baker Jr., a local
agent with Farm Bureau Insur-
ance Services.
He added that legislators
should find a way to use billions
of taxpayer dollars that indi-
rectly fund indigent care now,
to cover the uninsured.
"The money's already out
there, you just need to move it
around," said Mr. Baker.
Though Mr. Crenshaw advo-
cated more regulation of insur-
ers, like state laws prohibiting
them from denying coverage for
pre-existing conditions, he said
the Democratic plan could ad-
versely affect small businesses
by taxing them if they don't of-
fer employees coverage.
"Since when did it become
an employer's responsibility
to provide insurance?" asked

budgets
< Macclenny hadn't released its
proposed budget as of early this
week.
Last year the county also gave
the Council on Aging $750,000
to help build a new senior center,
but as Ms. Yarbrough stressed
this week, "That was not opera-
tions money."
The council used about
$255,000 of that sum to pur-
chase five acres at the corner of
Buck Starling and Willis Hodges
roads behind on the Winn Dixie
in June.
Another local organization,
the Community Action Agency,
saw a $2600 reduction in rev-
enue from the county, which
amounts to a little more than one
percent of the agency's budget
for the Baker County branch on
Lowder Street.
The drop will impact how
many people the agency assists
with its education, employment,
housing and youth programs,
said Alterial Baker, the agency's
manager locally.
She said instead of having 10
children in its Youth in Action
program which consists of af-
ter-school activities, homework
assistance and crime prevention
training the agency may have
to limit enrollment to seven or
eight kids, for instance.
"[The reduction] does matter,
even if its one percent or two per-
cent," said Ms. Baker.
Nonetheless, those were just
two of many cuts made to help
balance this year's spending pri-
orities with expected revenues.
Others included $5ooo less
for repairs and maintenance at
the health department and senior
center, and $22,000 eliminated
for vehicles and equipment in the
building department.
Maintenance for the Ag Cen-
ter is down $35,ooo and the
county's $350,000 contingency
was dropped to $300,000.
"I went through that line-by-
line," Mr. Cone said of the pro-
posed budget, which if approved
in September will take effect Oc-
tober 1. "I've gone through these
departments and cut them wher-
ever I could."
He did so with the help of
Finance Director Debbie Perry-
man and Clerk of Courts Al Fra-
ser, though the final budget will
be adopted by the five-member
Baker County Commission.

for something known as Alpha 1
anti-trypson Deficiency.
Neither are affected by the
disorder and did not know they
possessed the trait when they
married just over three years
ago. But the problem showed up
when their daughter Allison was
born in December 2007.
Not all children born to par-
ents with the trait develop prob-
lems or require transplants, but
baby Allison was unlucky.
"Children with such a defi-
ciency develop liver failure in the
first three years of life," said Ms.
Surrency. "For Allison, it was cir-
rhosis."
Baby Allison's troubles were
becoming apparent even before
birth. Fetal weight gain wasn't
where it should be. The Surren-
cys both work in the medical field
and the baby's weight problem
was a red flag that something
wasn't right.
Mr. Surrency, a paramedic in
Clay County, remembers hoping
nothing was really wrong, that it
was something simple that could
easily be taken care of.
The baby didn't gain weight or
thrive. Because her liver function
declined steadily during her first
five months, she wasn't receiv-
ing adequate nourishment. Then
jaundice set in.
Allison was admitted to
Nemours in Jacksonville for
tests such as ultrasounds, blood
work and a HIDA (Hepatobiliary
Imino-Diacetic Acid) scan.
The HIDA scan revealed prob-
lems with the liver and a condi-
tion known as billiary atresia, a
rare disorder affecting thousands
of babies each year.
The Surrencys understood Al-
lison would need a transplant.
They started a week of Internet
research, finally identifying Jack-
son Memorial Hospital in Miami
as the best facility for the opera-
tion.
"A lot of praying went into that
decision," said Ms. Surrency.
Then began the task of navi-
gating the insurance landscape
and awaiting approval for their
choice of Jackson Memorial Hos-
pital. When it came, the Surren-
cys drove to Miami for Allison's
pre-transplant evaluation. That
visit, which should have taken
only two days, turned into two
and a half months. Allison's con-
dition was so poor the surgeon
made the decision to keep the
baby in the hospital until a liver
donor could be found.
Allison was so small because
she had not been able to tolerate


regular food. At Jackson, she was
placed on a feeding tube and giv-
en a special predigested formula
in the hope of her gaining enough
weight to withstand the surgery.
Soon, however, the formula
didn't work either. The baby's
ammonia levels began to soar.
Her own body was poisoning
her.
"We were running out of
time," said Ms. Surrency.
In the two months since Al-
lison had been admitted, no ap-
propriate donor had been found
and the little girl was dying.
A liver from an adult cannot be
transplanted into a child because
it is too big. The Surrencys were
then faced with the only other
option. A partial donation.
It is possible to remove a por-
tion of an adult liver and place it
into a child and Ms. Surrency be-
gan to undergo tests to see if she
would be a compatible donor.
Then suddenly, everything
changed. The grieving parents
got the word that a donor was
available. Surgery was immedi-
ate.
"I was relieved, but scared to
death," said Mr. Surrency.
For Allison's parents, it was
an extraordinary relief, but both
admit it was bittersweet.
"We had hoped for a live do-
nor. We didn't want another
child to lose its life for a liver to
be available to our daughter,"
said Mr. Surrency.
"I had been distraught for my
own child, but I also grieved for
the parents of that other child,
too," Ms. Surrency said. "I have
some idea what they must have
been feeling."
Baby Allison entered surgery
on New Years Eve, 2007. She en-
tered the ICU with her new liver
on News Years Day, 2008.
The surgery was challenging.
Allison had heavy blood loss. She
wasn't clotting well. She was very
swollen from steroids adminis-
tered before surgery and the flu-
ids she was now receiving. To her
mother, the baby's head looked
as big a basketball.
Almost immediately, there
was dramatic improvement. The
yellow pallor of her skin and eyes
disappeared.
"Her eyes were crystal clear,"
said Ms. Surrency. "Even her
hair, which had become sparse
because so much of it had fallen
out, seemed thicker."
Six weeks later, the family re-
turned home.
Today, Allison is thriving -
happy, healthy and with a great
appetite. She loves to dress up


in pretty dresses, put on lots of
bracelets and carry a handbag.
She is also a fan of Dora the Ex-
plorer, which plays almost con-
stantly on the TV in the family
room. She also loves to meet new
people.
"She doesn't know a stranger,"
says her mother.
For the young family, their


harrowing stay in Miami is now
only a memory.
"You know," said Mr. Sur-
rency, "it all just seems like a bad
dream now."
He admits to being a little un-
easy when they first arrived in
Miami.
"Jackson wasn't in the best
neighborhood and the hospital


LENDER


building itself seemed sort of old
and a little run down looking.
But the doctors and the care our
daughter received were superior.
"Even the custodial staff in
that hospital is outstanding. I
cannot say enough about how
amazing they are."

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


COURT

15 years for vehicle homicide


A Starke, FL woman was
sentenced August 3 to 15
years in prison for vehicu-
lar homicide in the death of
a passenger in her vehicle
that was fleeing at high
speed from police nearly
three years ago.
Stacey Bailey, 27, will
have to serve a minimum of
three years under terms of
the plea agreement accept-
ed by Circuit Judge James
Nilon. In addition to the ho-
micide count, she pleaded
to felony fleeing and driving
with no valid license in an
accident resulting in death.
She will be on probation 10
years following release.
Ms. Bailey, who has an exten-
sive criminal record dating back
to juvenile age and has twice
before been sentenced to prison,
was at the wheel of a 2002 Mit-
subishi belonging to a Bradford
County woman when it slammed
into the rear of a parked gasoline
tanker on SR 121 about 2.5 miles
south of Macclenny the morning
of August 21, 2006.
The impact killed passenger
Belvin McNeil of Lawtey.
At the time, Ms. Bailey was
leading police from three coun-
ties and Florida Highway Patrol
troopers on a high-speed pursuit
that began when she was clocked
speeding on SR 100 just west of
Starke.
Trooper Dan Myers measured
her speed at 124 mph just before
Ms. Bailey reversed direction on
SR 121 and headed back south
to where the collision occurred.
There was no resulting explosion
when the right front of the Mit-
subishi struck and left rear of the
tanker, and the truck driver was
not injured.
Ms. Bailey was hospitalized
with serious injuries, and told
police she had been on cocaine
the three days before the acci-
dent. She also said she ran from
Bradford and Union county dep-
uties because she did not have a
license.


Crenshaw

((From page 1
tor who said he's opted to pay his
workers a little more instead of
offering coverage.
Chamber executive direc-
tor Darryl Register, also a dairy
farmer, was interested in hearing
about the impacts on small busi-
nesses.
He asked the representative
what the maximum number of
employees a small business could
have and still be exempted from
the proposed federal coverage
mandates that, if not followed,
could mean a tax increase.
"That's a moving target," Mr.
Crenshaw said, explaining that
the number of employees needed
to qualify for the exemption var-
ied between different versions of
the bill.
Mr. Register also relayed frus-
tration with rising premiums.
He said he's been offering
health insurance to employees
for the last 15 years, but has had
to increase the deductible to keep
the premiums reasonable, and
still has only one worker that can
afford family coverage.
To address the rising cost of
insurance, the congressman rec-
ommends opening up competi-
tion between insurers in different
states, encouraging small busi-
nesses and individuals to pur-
chase health association insur-
ance plans, which pool customers
to spread around insurance risk,
and tort reform to lower the cost
of medical malpractice insurance
for doctors.
Glen St. Mary Nurseries owner
Lin Taber suggested a more di-
rect route to control cost forc-
ing insurance companies to keep
their rates competitive.
"Rates have progressively
gone up and up," he said. "At
$400 to $600 a month, it gets to
where you can't carry insurance
for your employees."
Other business owners, like
accountant Greg Lyons, opposed
further government involvement


The defendant's prior record
includes arrests for theft, forg-
ery, battery and robbery with a
firearm. She was on probation at
the time of the accident.
In other sentencing during
Monday's motion and docket
day:
Cody Guernsey, 28, of Mac-
clenny will serve a two-year pris-
on term following his no contest
plea to grand theft and felony
petty theft. The prison sentence
will be followed by a two-year
probation.
Mr. Guernsey was charged
with stealing jewelry from Mary
Burnsed in April of this year and
$100 from the purse of Mag-


in the health care industry.
"It's not in the Constitution,"
said Mr. Lyons.
With a Democratic majority in
Congress, though, Mr. Crenshaw
is confident health care reform
will be passed and it will change
the way insurance works.
But, he predicted, "I don't
think they'll have a government
plan."

Woman


in bed is


attacked


bypair
Two women were arrested for
burglary and battery for allegedly
barging into the residence of Me-
linda Duncan, 35, off Moccasin
Circle in north Baker County and
beating her as she lay in bed with
her boyfriend.
The incident took place about
midnight on August 1, accord-
ing to the report by Deputy Earl
Lord. He arrested Leslie Perry-
man, 27, of Glen St. Mary and
Ciara Stokes, 22, of Sanderson,
who were still at the residence
when the officer arrived.
Both suspects admitted to
striking Ms. Duncan multiple
times, but denied entering the
residence. Their versions were
contradicted by the victim, her
boyfriend Billy Burnham and by
Shawn Breeden, who drove the
accused to the location.
Ms. Duncan said the assailants
announced they were coming in
to attack her, then jumped on her
and began doing so.
In other cases:
Three persons were named
in complaints for battery follow-
ing related confrontations at two
Sanderson locations the after-
noon of July 29.
Stephanie Davis, 25, and
Sarah Parish, 24, are accused of
attacking Jessica Cannon, 31, of
Macclenny at an address off Co-
lumbia St. north of Sanderson.
Both the suspects reside off Ber-
tie Davis Circle in north Sander-
son.
Elmus Davis, 25, of Sanderson
is named in a similar complaint
for allegedly poking a 15-year-
old female in the head with a gas
pump nozzle earlier.
The report by Cpl. Ben Ander-
son did not say what the argu-
ment was over.
Steven Smith, 30, of Mac-
clenny was treated at Fraser
Hospital emergency room then
transferred to Shands Jackson-
ville for head injuries received
the evening of July 30, probably
in the south city.
Deputy Trent Page said wit-
ness Shirley Ruise of Macclenny
found Mr. Smith sitting on the
side of South Boulevard near
Grissholm St. about 11:00. He
was bleeding heavily from head
injuries and told the officer he
had been struck by a car.
Deputy Page said the injuries
did not appear consistent to a
collision with a car. A physician
at Fraser told the officer Mr.
Smith sustained numerous facial
fractures and possibly a concus-
sion.

of Macclenny, told Deputy Earl Lord they were approached by four
black males with handguns about 1o:3o. The four demanded they
empty their pockets of all contents.
Mr. Magnan said he gave them $2; Mr. Meister told them he had no
money. One of the robbers then asked Mr. Magnan if he had speakers
in his car. He did not.
The four then walked back to the southeast, the direction from which
they came.
A sheriffs investigator was assigned to the case.



MIKE GREEN PLUMBING


Rams his pickup into tree on Hillcrest Dr.
Police say the driver of this 2000 Chevrolet pickup rammed it through a metal wire fence and into a large oak
tree the afternoon of July 28. Randall Johns, 35, of Maxville was apparently upset after an argument with his es-
tranged wife, who was at a nearby residence on Hillcrest Dr. off of Woodlawn Rd. He was alone in the vehicle and
was flown from the Emergency Operations Center in Macclenny to Shands Jacksonville. Investigating Trooper
D.L. Myers of the Florida Highway Patrol said Mr. Johns had serious injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt, and
Trooper Myers charged him with careless driving.


Traffic stop drug arrests


County deputies arrested sev-
eral persons the past week for
drug offenses, both felony and
misdemeanor. All the arrests
were the result of traffic stops.
Richard Smith, 29, of Mac-
clenny and Willis Hudson, 33, of
Sanderson were booked for felo-
ny possession of powder cocaine
after the 1998 GMC pickup in
which they were passengers was
stopped about 3:50 the morning
of August 1.
Deputy Chris Walker said he
stopped the vehicle registered
to Mr. Smith on Smokey Rd.
for having no tag light, and saw
him place something in the glove
box. A subsequent vehicle search
turned up the cocaine in a folded
one dollar bill.
Mr. Hudson produced a simi-
larly-wrapped amount of cocaine
from a pants pocket.
The driver of the truck was not
charged.
Two men from Olustee were
taken to jail the evening of July
29 after they were stopped in a
2002 Buick on US 90 near CR
250 in the west county.
Deputy Brad Dougherty said
the westbound Buick was swerv-


ing and had crossed the center
line on 90 three times before he
stopped it about 9:25.
Lt. Scotty Rhoden, who was
following the deputy's cruiser,
said he noticed driver Dontay
Johnson, 22, place an object in
the front console of the vehicle.
The officers in a subsequent
search found a plastic bag with
four rocks of crack.
Mr. Johnson also had $739 in
cash, money he claims he won
gambling.
Passenger Damon Maxwell,
23, had two small baggies of
marijuana and $400 on his per-
son. He was charged with misde-
meanor possession, Mr. Johnson
with a felony.
Michael Alderson, 47, of
Ponte Vedra was at the wheel of a
2005 Chevrolet eastbound on In-
terstate 10 near Sanderson when
it was pulled over by Deputy Matt
Sigers just before 4:00 the after-
noon of July 29.
The vehicle matched the de-
scription of one reported driving
carelessly on US 90.
Deputy Sigers said he stopped
the Chevrolet for having an ex-
pired registration sticker, and he


summoned Cpl. Ben Anderson
and his drug-sniffing canine after
Mr. Alderson admitted to having
prescription medication in the
car.
The officer became suspicious
examining the hand-lettered
name of the driver on a bottle
containing 152 Methodone pills,
and learned from River Region
Human Services that no such
prescription was issued to Mr.
Alderson, and if it was it would
have been in liquid form.
He was booked for felony pos-
session of a controlled drug.
Jason Burnette, 19, no ad-
dress indicated, was arrested the
evening of July 28 for possession
of four Hydrocodone pills found
in an ashtray.
Investigator Erik Deloach said
he stopped the vehicle driven by
Mr. Burnette after seeing it drift
over the center line of Lowder St.
in west Macclenny.
Mr. Burnette said the pills be-
long to his father.

Teens shoplifting

Criminal complaints for petty theft were filed against two juvenile
age females caught shoplifting in separate incidents at the Walmart
Supercenter in Macclenny the past week.
A store security worker said she spotted the first suspect, a 17-year-
old from Glen St. Mary, placing wallets and shirts in a purse about 6:40
the evening of August 1. The employee confronted the girl as she at-
tempted to leave the store and recovered the merchandise.
Two days earlier about 5:00 pm, the same employee saw a 15-year-
old from Sanderson place 10 items of clothing in a bag before she tried
to leave the store. When she was confronted at the front door, the teen
at first attempted to flee but was detained.
The bag contained clothing valued at $102.
In another report involving a retail store, a white male passed a fake
$1o bill at the west Macclenny Exxon on US 90 the evening of July 27.
Clerk Aaron Maines said the man used the bill to pay for gasoline.
His image may have been captured on a surveillance camera.
Several counterfeit bills have been passed in the Macclenny area in
recent weeks.

Captain Kirk.
Like most people I like choco-
late sometimes too much. This
substance is so ubiquitous in our
society that we never consider a
time when it wasn't readily acces-
sible.
I happened to read a history
of chocolate recently and was
surprised to learn some of the
unusual facts associated with
one of America's favorite con-
fections. First and foremost, it's
been used by humans for about
4000 years.
For most of its recorded his-
tory, chocolate was consumed as
a drink. It wasn't sweetened ei-
ther, as people didn't have sugar.
Anyone who has ever tasted un-
sweetened cocoa or nibbled on a
baker's square of chocolate will
understand the gustatory forti-
tude it must have taken to eat it
this way. It's absolutely horrid.
But eat it they did, often cutting
the taste with spices and chili
peppers.
In the Sixth Century, the Ma-
yans, who cultivated the first co-
coa plantations, consumed cocao
as a health elixir.
Xocoatl, the Maya word for
chocolate, translates to "bitter
water." In their culture, choco-
late was believed to be the food
of the gods and a cocoa tree was
brought from paradise into the
world by a great bird worshiped
in their religion.
Seeing as how the church
has always been good at making
money, cocoa seeds were used as
currency.


mixture on the


course toward
developing into
the much loved
and celebrated
substance we en-
joytoday.
In Europe,
there were


chocolate houses before anyone
thought to serve coffee in such
establishments. When chocolate
developed a reputation as an
aphrodisiac, its appeal escalated
even more. Alas, the recent re-
search refutes that reputation.
The same ingredient in choco-
late thought to provoke amorous
qualities is actually found in
higher levels in cheddar cheese
and pickled herring but, of
course, that's not as sexy as the
dark sweet stuff.
When I was a little kid, you
could buy a Hershey bar as big
as a brick for a dime. You could
also get a Coke in the little bottle
for fifteen cents. Those were my
preferred purchases when I went
to the Red and White Grocery
Store with my dad on Saturday
morning.
I had feet that were bigger than
most little girls my age and was
able to wear my mother's shoes
by the time I was nine. I distinctly
remember going to the Red and
White wearing shorts and a pair
of her black, high heeled pumps.
I went in, got my Hershey Bar
and Coke and strutted around the
store behind my dad as he pushed
the grocery cart. I thought I was
hot stuff.
The ancient Mayans would no
doubt be dumbfounded if they
could see the chocolate of today.
But as many incarnations as the
"bitter water" of their culture has
evolved into, there is still nothing
better than a plain old Hershey
bar.

The 'adventures' of childhood


My bible of weekly news mag-
azines is The Week, a review of
all the important news and com-
mentary from both sides of the
political spectrum.
I'm not alone casting off
the old standbys like Time and
Newsweek. If you're going to be
biased, state your bias and get on
with it. Don't pretend you aren't.
One of my favorite features in
The Week is the essay. The edi-
tors publish work from a variety
of writers on sometimes every-
day topics and present them in a
way that leaves you saying, "Huh,
I never looked at it that way."
The subject recently was how
parents today are removing the
adventure from their children's
lives.
You've heard the term "he-
licopter parents." They are the
ones "hovering" over their kids,
supervising every moment they
are not in school or day care,
making play dates with "safe"

Parents today, for many rea-

like they have that freedom.
All too often, the result is that
kids find themselves confined

LAND PLANNING AGENCY



LPA tables kennel



for further study


JOELADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com

The Baker County Land Plan-
ning Agency tabled its consider-
ation July 23 of a 60-dog breed-
ing kennel in the north county so
state environmental officials can
make a determination about any
hazards that animal waste may
pose to groundwater or local riv-
ers.
The kennel's owners, Nora
Herrmann and her husband,
applied for a special exception
to operate the facility in the ag-
ricultural zoning district, which
doesn't permit such use.
However, the couple's two,
three-acre lots north of O.C.
Home Road on Frenda Road
west of Benny Joe Bennett Road
also don't conform with land
regulations because they're too
small, even when combined, for
the existing 7.5-acre agricultural
zoning, said county planning di-
rector Ed Preston.
Building department director
Bob Hathcox added that because
a barn on the property is not be-
ing used for agricultural purpos-
es, it required a building permit,
which was never obtained.
The couple lives in a motor
home on the property, which is
also not allowed.
"The waste from the animals
is a concern," said Mr. Preston,
who had asked the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection for guidance.
"We didn't intend to cause any
problems by building our kennel
here," Ms. Herrmann told LPA
board members. "We didn't want
any problems. We want peace
like everybody else."
She and her husband moved
to Baker County from norther
Georgia and purchased the prop-
erty from Iona Fish.
"We didn't follow the proce-
dures in your county because
we didn't know," said Ms. Her-
rmann, adding that she took out
a mortgage on the land with the
understanding it was unrestrict-
ed.
Three neighboring residents
voiced opposition to the request
citing nuisance concerns and
fears of environmental contami-
nation.
"That's what I'm concerned
about, all the waste of the ani-
mals," said Forest Durance.
Scott Booth was interested in
any potential impacts to a nearby
river he often uses for boating
and fishing.
"My total quality of life will be
ruined if this business is allowed
to continue," said Elizabeth Bar-
ber.
The board decided to defer
judgement on the case until next
month in hopes of hearing from
FDEP about any potential haz-


ards from animal waste.
"We'll comply with whatever
DEP recommends to dispose of
animal waste ... We want to do
it the right way," said Ms. Her-
mann.
However, Mr. Preston said
early this week a review of the
situation is underway by Terry
Graham, the county's environ-
mental services director.
In another special excep-
tion request involving animals,
the LPA allowed Fred Sanford to
keep a pet donkey on his George
Hodges Road property north of
I-lo and west of SR 121 as long as
two turkeys are removed and two
goats are placed in an encloser as
regulations require.
"He's a smaller donkey," Mr.
Sanford's wife told the board.
"He's just like a dog. He follows
you around. He doesn't stink."
Board Chairman C.J. Thomp-
son visited the property on two
occasions and said it appeared
clean and without offensive odor,
the main complaint of neighbors
who attended a previous hearing
on the matter.
"[There was] nothing I felt was
a nuisance," he said.
LPA board members were
also unanimous in their deci-
sion to amend the county's firing
range regulations to allow for
guns of higher caliber than .45
and change permitted hours of
operation.
Mr. Hathcox, the building de-
partment director and a nation-
ally recognized champion target
shooter, said removing the cali-
ber restriction would be neces-
sary to attract a private shooting
range to Baker County.
County planners conducted a
survey last year while developing
a recreation master plan and the
results showed shooting ranges
to be one of the most desirable
facilities not already present in
Baker County.
The other change would re-
strict operating hours from a
half-hour after sunrise to a half-
hour before sunset, instead of
9:oo am to 7:00 pm.
'That would give a prospective
range if they wanted to come to
Baker County the opportunity of
starting early," said Mr. Hath-
cox.
He said there has been no
applications made for poten-
tial firing ranges and that rules
forbidding facilities that cause
nuisances or hazards remain in
place.
Linnie Wilkerson's rezon-
ing request for a vacant half-acre
lot on the south side of CR 23B
was also granted. The new half-
acre zoning was a change from
one-acre zoning and makes the
lot conforming and eligible for
building permits.
There are a number of half-
acre lots in the immediate area.

THE BAKER COUNTY PRESS


COUNTY COMMISSION


Admin. building plan shelved


Board agrees;

$715K is not

enough cash
JOEL ADDINGTON
NEWS EDITOR
reporter@bakercountypress.com
Plans for building new county adminis-
tration offices next to the Sheriffs Complex
on CR 228 were scrapped the evening of
August 4 after the Baker County Commis-
sion discovered there wasn't enough money
to complete the job.
County Manager Joe Cone said the
$715,000 that's left from a one-time
$8oo,ooo state grant for increasing space
at the courthouse likely won't cover the es-
timated $740,000 construction cost, plus
the accompanying paving and utility im-
provements.
"The bottom line is we'd have to add to
the $715,000 ... But there isn't any money,"
he said.
The commission is already expected to
sweep more than a million dollars from re-
serve accounts to balance the budget in the
coming year.
The new administration building was
part of a plan to alleviate crowding at the
courthouse by moving the state attorney's
office into the existing county offices on
North 3rd Street.
The 98oo-square-foot structure was to


be located on five acres previously trans-
ferred to the county from the Baker Correc-
tional Development Corporation as repay-
ment for $200,000 in start-up costs for the
nonprofit.
"Sooner or later, the county's going to
need that land," said Mr. Cone, who then
suggested an alternate plan for the leftover
cash.
He recommended and commissioners
agreed to move county staff including the
building department, grants department,
environmental services and planning and
zoning into the former sheriffs administra-
tion offices and annex building.
The remaining funds will be used for
renovations at the annex, which has only
one bathroom that's not handicap acces-
sible, and existing county offices to accom-
modate state attorney personnel.
In other business, the commission:
Decided to continue its discussions on
the proposed 2009-10o budget August 10 at
5:30 pm in the commission chambers, 55
N. 3rd St. "We know we're in trouble," ad-
mitted Commissioner Alex Robinson, "but
we need to take away as much of the trouble
as we can."
Adopted a resolution needed to estab-
lish the North Florida Broadband Author-
ity, an new governmental entity charged
with managing development of infrastruc-
ture needed to bring high-speed wireless
Internet service to 14 rural counties in the
region.
Funding for the authority is expected
through about $7.2 billion allocated in the
federal stimulus package to expand broad-
band service, with grant and grant loan ap-
plications due by August 14.


"There's really not a more compelling
storyin the state of Florida for economic de-
velopment purposes," said Pat Lien, a con-
sultant for the 14-county coalition known
as the North Central Florida Rural Area of
Critical Economic Concern or RACEC. It's
one of three such areas in the state.
Mr. Lien said the authority would be a
wholesale provider of wireless Internet ser-
vice capacity, selling to any and all Internet
Service Providers (ISPs) willing to purchase
such capacity.
"The feds are helping to build a network
no one else would build otherwise," he
said.
The authority's first meeting is August
7 at 2:00 pm at Lake City Community Col-
lege. Baker County will be represented by
Darryl Register, director of both the coun-
ty's Economic Development Commission
and Chamber of Commerce.
Approved the First-time Homebuyer
Opportunity Program, which is replacing
the SHIP (State Housing Initiative Part-
nership) program and offering $8000 in
down-payment assistance to first-time buy-
ers, or those that haven't owned a home in
at least three years. The assistance must be
paid back to the county through the federal
government's first-time buyer tax credit or
a lien will be placed on the house.
The county has $350,000 available for
the program, which is set to expire in De-
cember, unless reauthorized by Congress.
County administrator Ann Yarbrough said
the county has already received several ap-
plications for the program.
Approved a contract with the medical
examiner's office in Gainesville.


Strikes wife, threatens daughter, flees


Man accuses his


step-son in theft of


26 prescription pills
A Glen St. Mary man filed a criminal complaint accusing his step-
son for stealing 26 Loritab prescription pills from their residence off
Mud Lake Rd.
The alleged theft occurred July 23 before a verbal argument prompt-
ed Elton Stone, 49, to call police the afternoon of July 29. Mr. Stone
also accused step-son James Newmans, 23, of damaging a front door
window when he left the residence on foot.
The complainant told Deputy Patrick McGauley that Mr. Newmans
earlier stole the medication to sell for money to pay his probation of-
ficer.
The argument on July 29 began when Mr. Stone told his step-son he
could no longer curse inside the home.
In a bizarre complaint alleging theft, a South Carolina man claimed
his homemade trailer containing $1oo,ooo in property belonging to a
now estranged fianc6 was taken off the road shoulder on Interstate 10
near Sanderson.
Marvin Jackson of Moore, S.C. told Deputy William Hilliard he left
the trailer after his truck broke down July 31 and was towed to a local
garage.
He later returned to find the trailer, which he said contained $50,000
in horse riding equipment and an art collection valued at $50,000, was
gone. He said he was moving the unnamed woman from Tampa to his
home so they could marry.
Mr. Jackson said the fianc6 did not stop in her vehicle when his truck
broke down, and later told him she did not want to marry him. Deputy
Hilliard said he made unsuccessful attempts to contact the woman, and
noted that Mr. Jackson several times changed the value of the missing
property.
In other cases:
Kyle Williams reported two firearms valued at $1200 were taken
from their cases at his residence off Crews Rd. late on July 31 while he
was at his sister's nearby residence.
Mr. Williams told Deputy Chris Walker he saw someone leave his
house on a four-wheeler and found the gun cases on a living room floor
when he entered the residence. He was unable to give a description of
the suspect or vehicle.
Mark Crews told police a brief case containing legal papers and
clipboard were removed from his camper trailer off CR 23C between
3:30 am-6:30 pm on August 2. Deputy Tony Norman noted there was
no sign of forced entry, nor that anyone had been inside.


A Sanderson man was arrested
on US 90 the evening of July 31
shortly after fleeing a residence
on Richardson Rd. following a
physical confrontation with his
estranged wife and her daughter.
Christopher Combs, 37, was
booked at county jail for do-
mestic violence and violating an
injunction. He is accused of strik-
ing Tammy Combs, 36, after she
returned to her residence about


Driving,

no license
Police continue to jail drivers
they stop at the wheel of vehicles
and without benefit of driver's
licenses, in many instances sus-
pended multiple times.
In many cases, deputies stop
vehicles because they know the
drivers and are aware of the sus-
pensions.
Among the recent arrests:
Jesse Hayes, 25, no listed
address, was stopped in a 1995
Dodge just before 10:00 pm
on August 1 after Deputy Chris
Walker said he ran a stop sign at
Lowder and Quail in south Mac-
clenny.
The officer said he was aware
Mr. Hayes' license was under
indefinite suspension. He also
charged him with misdemeanor
possession of marijuana.
Deputy Randy Davis said
he was familiar with the license
status of Woodrow Joyner, 39,
of Macclenny when he stopped
him in a 1990 Toyota on George
Hodges Rd. about 1:45 the morn-
ing of July 30.
Mr. Joyner has six prior sus-
pensions for failure to pay fines
and appear in court, and was also
wanted on a warrant from Charl-
ton County, GA.
James Newmans, 33, of Glen
St. Mary failed to stop for a red
signal about 4:oo am on July
29, and Deputy Tony Norman
learned of three prior suspen-
sions for failure to pay child sup-
port.
He stopped the 1999 Chevro-
let pickup at the intersection of
US 90 and CR 125 in Glen.
Deputy Walker recognized
driver Joseph Hollings, 41, of
Macclenny at the wheel of a 1999
Acura just after midnight on July
29. He stopped the car at US 90
and Duval Lane and arrested Mr.
Hollings for four prior suspen-
sions.
The same officer stopped
Christopher Starling, 24, of Mac-
clenny at US 90 and W. Bou-
levard just before 6:00 pm on
July 27. Mr. Starling's license
has four suspensions for failure
to pay fines, and Deputy Walker
made the traffic stop on US 90 in
Macclenny because he knew the
driver of the 2000 Hyundai had
an outstanding warrant.


8:00. When the victim's 12-
year-old daughter attempted to
intervene, Mr. Combs allegedly
grabbed her about the throat then
threatened her before leaving.
Deputy Chris Walker located
the suspect later that evening af-
ter talking to neighbors who saw
him running from the residence.
In other cases:
A criminal complaint names
Jimmy Lauramore, 30, of Mac-
clenny for cruelty to children for
allegedly leaving his vehicle in
gear with his two children inside
during an argument with Rachel
Lyons, 27, the evening of July
31. Ms. Lyons is the children's
mother.
The couple argued, accord-


ing to the report by Deputy
Trent Page, after Mr. Lauramore
showed up at Ms. Lyons' Deer-
wood Circle address in Mac-
clenny to pick up their children
for the weekend. The mother ob-
jected because she suspected Mr.
Lauramore had been drinking,
and the argument ensued.
Ms. Lyons was able to secure
her children and run into her
house after the accused put the
vehicle back in gear. Police were
unable to locate him, and the
complainant said Mr. Laura-
more continued to threaten her
via voice message and text after
he left.
Danny Bender, 49, filed a
criminal complaint against ex-


wife Vanessa, 32, for allegedly
violating a court order banning
her from contacting him. The
complainant told Sgt. Thomas
Dyal on July 28 that Ms. Bender
had been calling him at home
and at work, and made three at-
tempts that day.
A complaint alleging battery
following an argument over care
of a child was filed July 28 against
Jacqualine Solitro, 30, by Crystal
Cole, 23, both of the same Mac-
clenny address on Hickory St.
Deputy Matt Hilliard said Ms.
Cole bore signs of being struck
about the mouth. The argument
took place around 11:oo am.

AMP FEST

Nearly 200 show up


KELLEY LANNIGAN
FEATURES
features@bakercountypress.com
When Jeremy Lunn decided to
put together a community event
to showcase the work of local art-
ists and musicians, he wondered
what he should call the event.
He decided on AMPFEST.
AMP stands for art, music
and photography, all of which
featured prominently in the dis-
plays and on stage at the Mac-
clenny Woman's Club Saturday,
August 1. The event was free to
the public.
"There are lots of artist groups
in Jacksonville, but none in Mac-
clenny," said Mr. Lunn. "This
was a way to bring artists in this
area together and give the public
a chance to meet them and enjoy
their work."
Photographer and AMPFEST
Co-organizer Melissa Pellum
reported that attendance to the
event was steady throughout
the day.
"We had nearly 200 people
attend and we were so pleased
at the turnout and the re-
sponse of the community,"
she said. "People were asking
all day long how they could get
involved. We are already start-
ing to plan for the next AMP-
FEST which, hopefully, will
take place this October."
An art festival is a good op-
portunity for creative folks to
talk about themselves and how
they got started. The whimsi-
cally decorated dinner plates
of one artist, Alexis Wright
of Glen St. Mary, drew a lot of
reaction from visiting patrons.
Ms. Wright gives her mom, Jo
McCart, a lot of credit.
"Mom would be the one who
helped us make mermaid tails
out of old pillow cases for cos-
tumes," said Ms. Wright. "She
was always handing her kids
leftover materials like paper and
paint and saying "Here, do some-
thing creative with this."'
Today, Ms. Wright markets
her original art through her free-
lance company Ink Monkey Art.
The artist is planning to start do-
ing murals for clients in the near
future.
"Storefront windows, espe-
cially holiday themes, that's what
I want to tackle next," she said.
Chuck Utter of Macclenny
spent his professional career as a
graphic designer for an architec-
tural firm. He sat behind a table
covered with loose sketches and
sketchbooks filled with studies
for his finished works, many also
on display.
Rendered in subtle but rich
watercolor, his abstract compo-
sitions featured lots of multi-col-
ored geometric shapes that flow
together in visually arresting
harmonies.
He pulled a napkin from a
sketchbook. On one side was a
quick study of an idea made dur-
ing dinner one night.
"I save everything," he said.
"This idea may eventually be-
come a finished piece."
Two local fabric artists, quilter
Diane Davis and counted cross
stitcher Bobby Smith, were on
hand to talk about their work.
"I've been stitching since the
196o's and used to do alterations
in a bridal shop in New York,"
said Ms. Davis. "I started quilting
in 2000."
Her quilt entitled Butterflies
are free featured an unusual
technique not often seen. The
beautiful butterflies in each
square were hand colored with
crayons, then outlined with em-
broidery.
Another quilt in multiple
shades of purple and lavender
featured a sawtoothh" edge bor-
der. The quilt was entitled The
Color Purple.
'You can probably tell, I love
to name things after movies," she
said.

TOWN OF GLEN ST. MARY
FIRST PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
The Town of Glen St. Mary is considering applying to the Florida De-
partment of Community Affairs (DCA) for a Small Cities Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG) of up to $600,000. These funds must
be used for one of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate income persons; or
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
3. To meet other community development needs of recent origin having
a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and
immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and where
other financial resources are not available to meet such needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in the
areas of housing, neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization,
or economic development and include such improvement activities as ac-
quisition of real property, loans to private-for-profit business, purchase of
machinery and equipment, construction of infrastructure, rehabilitation
of houses and commercial buildings, and energy conservation. Addition-
al information regarding the range of activities that may be undertaken
will be provided at the public hearing.
For each activity that is proposed, at least 51% of the funds must benefit
low and moderate income persons.
In developing an application for submission to DCA, the Town of Glen
St. Mary must plan to minimize displacement of persons as a result of
planned CDBG activities. In addition, the Town of Glen St. Mary is re-
quired to develop a plan to assist displaced persons.
The public hearing to receive citizen views concerning the communi-
ty's economic and community development needs will be held at Town
Hall, 10046 N. Glen Avenue, Glen St. Mary, FL, on Tuesday, August 18,
2009 at 7:00 p.m. For information concerning the public hearing contact

In 1974, Sanderson resident
Curtis Williams, who played
football for Baker County High
School, was selected as a mem-
ber of the All American Football
Team.
"Curtis Williams Day" was
held August 1 at Jonesville Park
in Sanderson and marked the
35th anniversary of Mr. Williams'
selection as an All American.
The event was organized bythe
Baker County Community De-
velopment Center and included
recreation for the children such
as bounce and splash houses,
lots of good food and a give-away
of backpacks of supplies for stu-
dents who will soon be starting
the 2009-10 school year.
Ernest Folston Jr., pastor of
Kingdom Christian Fellowship
International in Sanderson pre-
sented Mr. Williams with a scrap-
book containing memorabilia of
his athletic career. He also read
aloud a letter to Mr. Williams
written by one of his former high
school coaches which stated:
For such a small county as
Baker County to have produced
an All American athlete is a
powerful achievement.
Friends and colleagues took
turns telling stories about Mr.
Williams and then Pastor Folston
presented him with an apprecia-
tion plaque to commemorate the
occasion.
When Mr. Williams took the
microphone, it wasn't to talk
about his past victories on the
football field.
Instead, he made an impas-
sioned plea to all adults present
to "get behind their children" and
do their duty as parents.
Mr. Williams made the follow-


Hooked on books

nations for children's books are
appreciated. Donations of non-
children books are also being

Family says thanks
The family of David Gibson
thanks its friends of Macclenny
for their continuous support.
The prayers, words of encourage-
ment, food and cards were greatly
appreciated. Thanks also to the
Baker County bus garage, NEF-
COM Telephone Company and
Cross Creek Restaurant for the
meals and paper goods. A special
thank you to brothers David and
Timmy Thomas for always being
there and having the right words
to say. A thank you to Christian
Fellowship Temple for preparing
food for us, We know we were not
the only ones they had to prepare
for that week.
Why God is calling so many
people home is so hard to under-
stand, but with the people in the
"small in number but big in heart"
town, it truly helps families to get
through tough times such as this.
Our David was special in his love
for people he didn't care if they
were rich or poor and never saw
color. If they needed, he gave and
never asked for anything in re-
turn. If you knew him, you loved
him. God bless all of you and
please keep our family in your
prayers.

All was well in Heaven as Dad-

with sorrow, but now they are
together. I know my Daddy's
happy; he finally found his
way. When God's grace set him
free, his tomorrow came today.

she'll never let him go. They're

Restaurants boosting schools
Baker County School Superintendent Sherri Raulerson and Fred Rhoden,
owner of both Woody's BBQ and the Swamp Sports Grill in south Mac-
clenny, shake hands on a proposal to have both restaurants serve as a
drop-off point for donations of school supplies for Baker County students.
Starting this week and running through September, people are encour-
aged to drop off paper, pencils, markers, backpacks, notebooks and other
materials. The restaurants also will stage "Spirit Nights" as fund raisers
for different grade levels during the coming school year. Students and
their families will be encouraged to eat at the restaurants, and Mr. Rho-
den pledged 10 percent of proceeds will be donated to the classes for
computers, books and other learning aides. During the two weeks before
school starts August 23, the restaurants will offer 20 percent discounts to
all school district employees as an appreciation gesture.

Cat drilling on the

basics and passing

Against Orange Park
As the summer
wears on, the Baker
High Wildcats con-
tinue to refine their
preparations for ...
the start of a new
football season. ... ..
Conditioning drills .
continue on a daily
basis as well as work
on fundamentals. -
Another wrinkle ,
has been the pass-
ing league. The Cats
compete against .
Orange Park High
and other top area
schools in a passing
league during the
week, and though
rain has put a
damper on some of
play, they have got-
ten some good prac-
tice sharpening up
the short and longer
game.
Though the Cats
aren't a team that
relies much on pass-
ing, it is an essential
part of the play- PHOTO BY JOEL ADDINGTO
book, particularly Tymechee Givens catches a pass against a Paxon


in games where they
may have to come
from behind. Coach Bobby Johns
wants to be ready in the eventu-
ality when he has to rely on his
quarterback's arm rather than
his running backs.
The coaching staff eyes a more
balanced offense than in the past,
and the passing league gives a lot
of valuable practice to the quar-
terback, wide receivers and also
the line who have to learn the
skills of pass blocking.
"We can win in the regular
season without passing a lot and
relying on our running game, but
not in the playoffs," said Johns.
"The deeper you get in the play-
offs, people will have to respect
both."

The Fat Lady- 'good' news on Phelps


Michael Phelps hasn't been in
the news in a good way since
last year's Olympics. He was in
the news for a while in ways that
he would rather avoid when he
was caught smoking dope at a
college frat party, but he's taken
a break from swimming until this
past weekend.
He competed in his first ma-
jor championship since Beijing
and was startled early on when
he was defeated by German Paul
Biedermann in the 200 freestyle.
It was world news.
Undeterred and angry at his
first major loss in four years,


Phelps came back to defeat his
chief rival, Czech Miloard Cavic,
in the loo-meter butterfly in
world record time. Cavic was
the swimmer Phelps beat by a
fingernail in the Olympics and
Cavic has loudly proclaimed that
he won that race.
As the meet progressed Phelps
got stronger and stronger. He
raced his way to five new world
records, proving to everyone that
his Olympic layoff hasn't really
hurt his competitiveness.
Tiger Woods is back in the
winners' column, taking the
Buick Open by three stokes.


Woods had a terrible opening
round, but came charging back
to take the lead on Saturday and
then cruised to the victory.
It's been a rough year of re-
habilitation for Tiger. He hasn't
been nearly as dominating since
knee surgery and has shown
signs of fatigue. But with the vic-
tory in the Buick, it could be that
the world's top golfer is back in
the groove. If he is, I wouldn't
want to be one of his major com-
petitors.
At least the Minnesota Vi-
kings have one piece of good


news going into the new NFL
season. They inked a five-year
deal with top pick Percy Harvin
this weekend. It's been a tumul-
tuous off-season for the Vikes,
who were caught up in the weekly
soap opera with Brett Favre. The
on again, off again talks to sign
the former Packers and Jets
quarterback is off for good. Favre
intends to remain retired.
At least for this week.
Now that the Vikings have
Harvin they can decide exactly
who will get him the ball. Then sit
back and watch him do his thing.
