The club has set its sights on
236 acres in north Sanderson

bordered on two sides by the

price tag is more than $1 mil-

"I'm going to push things as
fast as I can, but there's finan-

said when asked when the club
might move to Sanderson.
He said Gateway hopes to
maintain the new facility for
about $1oo,ooo a year. Today
the 45-year-old club has about
3000 members.

opted by commissioners, local

One dies in interstate inferno


hits semi
A Nashville, Tennessee man
died the morning of August 17
when his westbound pickup
truck veered into the opposite
lanes of Interstate 10 west of
Glen St. Mary and slammed
into a semi-truck that then
burst into flames.
The wreckage and debris
strewn along both eastbound
lanes closed that section of the
interstate until about 5:30 that
afternoon. Police detoured
thousands of vehicles at the
Sanderson exit, creating a traf-
fic snarl on US 90 through Glen
St. Mary and Macclenny. The
accident happened about 10:40
Johnny Lockett, 62, died at
the scene from the impact his
2000 Ford pickup absorbed
when it struck the 2006 Pe-
terbilt tractor hauling a large
front-end loader. The driver of
the semi, Michael Antaya, 59, of
St. Petersburg, was not injured
and got out of the cab before
fuel-fed flames engulfed the
truck and trailer. Thick black
smoke from the inferno could
be seen for several miles, and
it took nearly a half hour before
firefighters from several county
units and the City of Macclenny

BCI designated 're-entry' prison

Pioneer plan to prepare inmates for release

This year Baker Correctional
Institution between Sanderson
and Olustee became the second
prison in the state participating
in a new initiative designed to
reduce the state's 32 percent
recidivism rate by better pre-
paring inmates to re-enter the
BCI was dedicated a "re-entry
facility" that prepares offenders
for release with academic, vo-
cational and substance abuse
training during a ceremony
held the morning of August 13
and attended by more than 200
corrections officials and a group
of inmates now in the program.
"We will conquer this giant,"
Florida Department of Correc-
tions Secretary Walter McNeil
said of re-incarceration, ad-
dressing the inmates under a
large tent at the BCI campus off
US 90. "But it will require you
making the right choices ... At
the end of the day, it's the deci-
sions you make that will make
re-entry succeed or fail."
Florida's first re-entry facil-
ity was established at the De-
milly Correctional Institute in
Polk County and four more are
planned to serve northwest,
central and south Florida.
The re-entry initiative marks

who then steered into the grass

$2000 from a scraped right side.
Damage to the semi-truck and
trailer was placed at $150,000,

ID, credit card fraud


happening to more of us

By now, everyone knows what
identity theft is.
Baker County residents are
finding out on a near weekly
basis. Few weeks go by, in fact,
without someone reporting to the
sheriffs department that their
bank account has been raided,
their Social Security number
was used to set up a phantom ac-
count, or their credit card num-
ber somehow found its way into
another part of the world.
Just this week, a Macclenny
man learned his debit card was
used in Mexico and Somalia to
the tune of $1400-plus. (I don't
want to sound callous here or
politically incorrect but $1400
could probably buy you the na-
tion of Somalia, if "nation" is
what you call that miserable out-
post of civilization).
No matter. These kinds of
things are happening with great-
er frequency. I recall reading a
while back that if you are over 25
and live to be 85, you've got more
than an even chance of becoming
a victim of identity theft in your
I was in a check-out line sev-
eral months ago with about to
people behind me and no other
register open and the clerk was
having trouble swiping my credit
She called a supervisor (others
in line getting edgy), who in turn
was directed to someone from the
credit card company, who then
wanted to speak to me (other
customers getting cranky).

Jim McGauley
"Have you been in India lately,
like the last four days?" queried
the voice on the other end.
"Not that I know of."
"Well, we've flagged your card
because it was used five times
there the past few days."
"How interesting," was my
"We've cancelled the number
and will be re-issuing another
card within a week."
'Thank you."
(Customers behind me now
fidgety convinced I'm an iden-
tity thief about to get busted.)
I used another card, and felt
the need to tell the remaining
people in line what just hap-
"In case you are wondering,"
I addressed them all, "they just
told me my card has been used in
"The same thing happened
to me!" retorted one of the line
So there.
I was lucky; I signed an af-
fidavit e-mailed from the credit
card company and they took the
charges off my account (several
hundred dollars as I recall). No
effect on credit rating, no police
report to file, no chance the same
card could be used again. The
only risk, and it's a real one, is my

new card is just as vulnerable as
the old one. They did it before;
they can do it again.
In the recent case of the Mac-
clenny man, his bank theorized
that someone jimmied an ATM
machine to corral his PIN num-
ber when he swiped his card into
what he believed was a secure
system. Makes you wonder about
And let's not forget there's
an entire industry of computer
savvy people out there whose full
time job it is to figure out ways
to learn critical information and
obtain electronic access to your
money. It's what these people
There are some things you
can do. Many are buying iden-
tity theft insurance and a zillion
companies have sprung up of-
fering you that protection. Pure
logic plays a key role: never give
our your Social Security number
until you are convinced someone
needs it for legitimate purposes
- and never over the phone.
I can't say I felt "violated" by
the card fraud, like people do
when learning someone's been in
their home stealing their stuff.
I've never been to India and
probably will never go. My card
was there, though, used in two
liquor stores, a boutique and de-
partment stores.
I share their buying habits, at
least in two instances.

Jesus driving a Pontiac?

You've probably heard about
the woman who walked into Cog-
gin Pontiac dealership on Blanding
Boulevard in Jacksonville last week
claiming to be the wife of Jesus PO
She sought to purchase a Kelley
$70,000 vehicle and the check she
wrote was signed "Mr. and Mrs. Jesus and Emma
The suspicious dealership quickly determined
the woman's bank account was bad. As it turned
out, the 25-year-old Mrs. Jesus Christ, aka Emma
Kim-Tashis Harrison, wasn't employed and never
had a driver's license. She did have credit cards in
her possession issued to Emma Harrison and Emma
The so-called wife of Jesus was arrested, taken to
jail and charged with organized fraud, among other
It seems Ms. Harrison is a bit deluded and/or
suffering from a mental illness. Her claim to have
a direct connection to the son of God, however, is
more common than you might think.
I've heard about the so-called "Jesus complex" for
years. Some people come to the conclusion in their
minds that they are the Messiah.
I once spoke to a psychiatrist who had recently
gone to work on the ward of one of the mental health
facilities in South Carolina. He had "Jesus" as a pa-
When not in full Jesus mode, this patient spent



much of his time trying to con ev-

seriously and paid him little atten-

Insulted that his divinity was be-
ing taken for granted, "Jesus" confronted the doctor
in the hall one day, and quickly became agitated. He
shouted accusations at the doctor.
"You think I'm nuts, don't you?" yelled "Jesus."
"You might say that," the doctor quietly replied.
"Well, I'm not nuts! I'm not! Do you hear me! I-
"Okay, so you aren't nuts," said the doctor, not
looking up from the chart he was filling out.

I've tried, in vain I might add, to imagine the
mental landscape of persons who suddenly wake up
one day believing they are God or the Angel Gabriel.

She even tried to wrap up her vehicle shopping
spree by divulging to the dealership that piece of
coveted information which has titillated and in-
trigued Christians for centuries the time and place
of Jesus' second coming.
He would return, she told the dealership, the fol-
lowing week to pick up their $70,000 vehicle.

Mud bog controversy

spurs new regulation
Recent fervor over Troy McCullough's attempt to bring a mud bog-
ging venue to Baker County prompted the Baker County Commission
this week to begin the process of putting regulations in place to govern
the activity.
Despite objections from Mr. McCullough, the board instructed
county planning staff the evening of August 17 to draft a proposed or-
dinance based on laws already in place in Taylor and Putnam counties
for the Land Planning Agency to review.
The agency will hold a public hearing on the new legislation before
forwarding a recommendation to commissioners, who will decide on
final adoption.
The agency's denial in June of Mr. McCullough's application for a
temporary permit to operate a mud bogging pit off Mud Lake Road for
one year has been appealed to the commission.
That hearing is set for August 25 at 6:oo pm in the school board's
chambers on South Boulevard in Macclenny.
But since a new ordinance could take months to finalize, Mr. Mc-
Cullough's appeal should not be impacted. However, he's searching for
an alternate location for the mud bog due to resistance from neighbor-
ing residents and a new application could be considered under the new
"That's exactly why this was put in place," Mr. McCullough said. "It's
going to affect me down the road. I think it was put in there unfairly...
You'd think we would've been notified of this meeting."
Baker County has no rules governing mud bogging, which is de-
scribed in Putnam County's ordinance as using a vehicle to travel
across terrain that is chosen for such travel because of its wet or muddy
"It's not precluded right now," said planning director Ed Preston.
"The term mud bog doesn't appear in our regulations."
The Putnam County ordinance also makes exceptions for govern-
ment, farming and the use of up to eight vehicles on such property by
the property owner, his family or guests.
Taylor County's mud bog regulations require an applicant have a $1
million insurance policy as well as signed approvals from all property
owners within 660 feet of the activity.
Other rules in the ordinances cover waste disposal, security, park-
ing, alcohol possession as well as a host of other factors.
"It's no reflection on you, I promise," Commissioner Alex Robin-
son told Mr. McCullough. "It's something the other counties wanted to
share with us."
Because another party may someday want to start a mud bogging
operation in the area, Commissioner Mike Griffis said the county needs
some guidelines.
But depending on how soon Mr. McCullough can secure approval
for his plans either via the appeal later this month or a new applica-
tion for a different site he could be subject to the new restrictions.
County Manager Joe Cone said it could be two or three months be-
fore a mud bog ordinance is adopted.
"I'm trying to look for the right location and I don't want it to be
pulled out from under me," Mr. McCullough said.

Road swap snag

A road swap approved be-
tween Glen Nurseries and the
county six years ago this month
could soon be completed once
the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District grants a permit
for work already finished.
County commissioners ap-
proved paying for roughly
$12,000 worth of engineering
services from Prosser Hallock of
Jacksonville to obtain the permit
at the request of Glen Nurseries
owner Lin Taber August 14.
Mr. Taber donated 1.75 miles
of 6o-foot wide right-of-way ad-
jacent to the interstate in 2003 in
exchange for closing the county-
maintained Glen Nursery Road
to through traffic.
He agreed to clear the 13 acres
of right-of-way and the county
assisted with placement and siz-
ing of culverts, and by stabilizing
the dirt road with a lime rock al-
ternative known as EZ Base.
Mr. Taber was recently noti-
fied by the water district that
a permit was required for the
completed road work due to the
presence of about a quarter-acre
of wetlands.
That led him to solicit propos-
als from three engineering firms
to secure the permit and Prosser
Hallock offered the lowest esti-
mate by more than $10,ooo.
Mr. Taber called the proposal
a personal favor and said the dis-
trict also waived a $10o,ooo fine
for not getting a permit in the
first place.
"It's a win-win situation for
everybody," Mr. Taber told the
board. He explained the new
road would eliminate safety con-
cerns from Glen Nursery Road's

winding alignment and helped
preserve the nursery, which has
been designated a historic site.
The new road is also less flood
prone than Glen Nursery Road,
which will reduce the county's
maintenance costs. During re-
cent heavy rains, Mr. Taber said
drivers were tearing down the
barricades blocking access to the
new road because Glen Nursery
Road was flooded in a number of
"That was the best road that
didn't have asphalt on it," com-
mented Commissioner Michael
Crews, who said he drove it re-
After the exchange, Glen
Nursery Road will remain open
for access to the nursery and
the Mathis House, but not for
through traffic, said Mr. Taber.

His record also reflects a fail-
ure to register in 2006.
In a recent case, a 30-year-
old woman from the Sanderson
area was arrested August 17 for
having sex with a 15-year-old
male four times during a two-
week period.
The boy's father reported the
alleged crime to Deputy Jerald
Peterson on August 11, and indi-
cated the woman had been stay-
ing at his residence off CR 122.
The officer found suspect
Sanita Mobley at a Macclenny
address and she denied the al-
legations during questioning on
August 14.
Ms. Mobley was booked for
lewd and lascivious battery of a
person between 12-15.

Prosecutor leaves for ICE...
Assistant State Attorney Patrick McClintock left his post two weeks ago
to become an assistant chief counsel at the Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) regional office in San Antonio. He accepted the posi-
tion recently and his responsibilities will include both deportation and
removal proceedings in southeast Texas. Mr. McClintock has been divi-
sion chief here since October, and for 20 years was a prosecutor in the
Seventh Circuit located in Daytona Beach. State Attorney Bill Cervone of
Gainesville will replace Mr. McClintock temporarily with veteran assis-
tant Geoff Fleck of Gainesville, who recently tried the Meloney Jackson
murder case. Ralph Yazdiya, a longtime assistant in the Macclenny of-

Stimulus cash arriving

More than 13 percent of the
funds in the 2009 American
Recovery and Reinvestment
Act have been paid out so far,
according to, and
close to $3 million of that has
gone to schools, road work and
housing in Baker County. Here's
what it's meant so far.
The school district has spent
about 76 percent of the roughly
$2.3 million its received in
recovery act funds, though an-
other $2.4 million is expected
through 2011.
The largest portion is $1.6
million that's paying for about
30 teaching positions, said dis-
trict finance manager Marcelle
That's about 10 percent of all
instructional staff.
Other district expenditures
funded by the recovery act in-
clude $90,ooo for a handicap
bus, $40,000 in cafeteria equip-
ment, $13,000 worth of teacher
training and $10,ooo in com-

puter software.
"We're not using any of the
money to build with, but it is
stimulating the economy," Ms.
Richardson said.
The Macclenny Housing
Authority received $156,375
for capital and management ac-
tivities, according to Propublica.
org, an independent, non-profit
investigative journalism orga-
nization that tracks stimulus
package spending.
Calls to authority director
David Manning to verify receipt
of the money and how its been
used were not returned.
The county is also working
to hand out about $350,000 in
$8000 increments for first-time
home buyer loans. The funds
must be paid back, presumably
using federal tax refunds after
filing for the first-time buyer
credit of the same amount.
Housing grants administra-
tor Arlene Griffis said five appli-
cations have been mailed out to
potential buyers, two of which
are being processed for eligibil-
No money has been awarded

The Florida Department of
Transportation is now in the
design and engineering phase
for repaving a stretch of CR 125
from US 90 north to Park Street
in Glen St. Mary. The close

funded solely through federal
stimulus dollars.

The county, with coopera-
tion from the sheriff's depart-
ment, is applying for more than
$400,000 in recovery act fund-
ing to rehabilitate the old jail on
2nd Street to once again house
local inmates.
Macclenny Fire Chief Buddy
Dugger said his department has
also submitted two stimulus
funding applications, one to
pay for about $90,ooo in new
equipment and another to cover
a $3 million fire station. Those
applications will be scored in
January 2010 and September
2010, respectively.

Land buy for dirt mining

Much of the acreage is wetlands

The New River landfill is
contracting to buy a neighbor-
ing property from Plum Creek
Timber Company for use in
borrowing daily cover dirt;
however, more than 60 percent
of the 13o acres is wetlands.
The landfill's board of direc-
tors approved the move during
its regular meeting August 13,
and its Gainesville attorney Jon
Wershowis finalizing the agree-

agement District (SRWMD)
and Union County, and a title
The survey and water per-
mitting will be done by the
landfill's engineering firm Jones
Edmunds for an amount not to
exceed $10,ooo.
"It had the least amount of
wetlands you could get in a 130-
acre tract," landfill Director
Darrell O'Neal responded when
asked about the possibility of
purchasing only the 50 acres of
usable property.
The dry acreage is not con-
tiguous and setbacks from
wetlands and property edges
further reduce where borrow-
ing can take place.
"When SRWMD permitting
is complete, we are hoping to
get closer to 65 percent of the
land for borrowing," said Mr.
The site's close proximity
to the landfill, only three miles
away, and the expectation it
could offer at least 15 years
worth of daily cover material,

for completion in March 2010.

The engineer's survey will

Buy a Bundle...

Save a Bundle

A onetime worker in a tree service business was
arrested for theft of three chain saws he allegedly
took from a storage shed off Crews Rd. on August
14. The shed was on the property of his former
James Jackson, 43, with an Ohio address, was
arrested about 10:00 that evening after he returned
to the neighborhood of victim Ira Wall, who earlier
reported the theft of saws valued at $1220.
The sheriffs department was looking for Mr.
Jackson after a neighbor reported to Mr. Wall
that he went with the suspect to pawn the saws in
Jacksonville, then dropped him off at the corner of
Edgewood and Old Kings Rd. on the city's north-
west side.
The neighbor, Johnny Rowland, told police he
was not aware that the saws had been stolen from
Mr. Wall.
Police were called after Mr. Jackson showed up
at the Rowland residence that evening, and shortly
after stopped him. According to Deputy Matt Rie-

gel, the suspect initially gave a false name and at-
tempted to swallow several pills that later turned
out to be narcotics for which he did not have a pre-
In addition to grand theft, Mr. Jackson is charged
with obstructing and resisting police, possession of
crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia, and felony
possession of marijuana.
Police learned that the suspect has a lengthy
criminal history.
Mr. Jackson also admitted he pawned the saws
for $180.
In a second case involving drugs and theft, a
criminal complaint was filed alleging Jarred Carter,
21, of Macclenny entered the residence of ex-girl-
friend Pamela Taylor on North Boulevard.
Ms. Taylor told police the suspect showed up
about 11:30 pm on August 15 and took $20 and a
pill bottle from her purse before driving off west-
bound on North Boulevard. The bottle contained a
half dozen Lortab prescription pills.

Thefts of three A/C units linked?

Police are looking into the
thefts of three air conditioning
units, two of them from vacant
houses in the same neighbor-
hood west of Glen St. Mary.
The latest theft occurred at
the residence of Linda Clifford
off Crews Rd. during the day
on August 14. She told Deputy
Chris Walker she returned
about 5:30 that afternoon and
found that the central unit was
disconnected from her house
and carted off.
The officer found tire tracks
at the scene, and a neighbor
recalled seeing a small black
Chevrolet pickup in the area
about 1:oo that afternoon.
Deputy Walker's report not-

Estates two weeks ago. He
returned to that location and
determined an air conditioner
had been removed from it and
from another nearby address at

attempting to locate the owners
of the other properties.
Ms. Clifford placed the value
of her unit at $2000.
In other theft cases:

and found a window had been
broken in an apparent burglary
The window was at a former
walk-up station, and an object
had been forced through it,
knocking over a display case.

Owner Manubhai Patel, who
had closed the store about a
half hour earlier, said nothing
appeared to be missing from
the inventory.

Matt Sigers that Sandra Mobley
put her Nissan in reverse that
afternoon and nearly knocked
her down while leaving the lat-
ter's residence off CR 122 near
Sanderson. Both sisters are 29.
Witness Dana Phillips, who
was at the residence about 3:00
when the incident occurred,
backed up Ms. Frazer's version
of events.
Deputy Sigers said initial at-
tempts to question Ms. Mobley
were unsuccessful. The report
does not indicate whether the
sister sustained injuries.
In other cases:
Russell Tittle, 52, of Mac-
clenny was arrested for do-
mestic battery on wife Gabriel
Benedek, 34, at their residence
off SR 121 north on August lo0.
The wife reported the in-
cident at county jail the next
morning, telling Deputy Kevin
Jenkins that Mr. Tittle punched
her in the face and threatened
to kill her if she left him. The of-
ficer said Ms. Benedek's left eye
was swollen and bruised.
The complainant also alleged
that on August 6 her husband
threatened her with a shotgun.
Mr. Tittle during questioning

Mistrial of BCI inmate

Jury mistakenly got access to report

The state will seek to re-try
Baker Correctional inmate
Barry Alvelo on contraband
charges following a mistrial
declared on August 11 because
the six-member jury had inad-
vertently been given access to
statements made by the defen-
dant to prison officials.
Circuit Judges James Nilon
declared the mistrial after the
jury had been in deliberation
that evening only a matter of
minutes. The panel sought
clarification on the report by
investigators who interviewed
Mr. Alvelo last March shortly
after he was allegedly found in
possession of a cell phone and a
small amount of marijuana.
The defendant, 35, was at the
time serving a 15-year sentence
for trafficking in heroin in south
Florida. He was tried on two
counts of introducing contra-
band into a state prison.
The case has been placed on
the pre-trial docket and could
be heard as early as this fall.
In court this week, a number
of defendants were sentenced
after pleading no contest, in-
cluding three women charged
with either child abuse or ne-
Judge Nilon withheld adjudi-
cation in the case of Keri White
of Jacksonville for child neglect
and sentenced her to two years

on administrative probation.
She was charged in May with
leaving her children in a vehicle
in the Walmart parking lot.
The judge can reduce the
sentence if the defendant suc-
cessfully completes parenting
classes and after she is on pro-
bation one year.
Probation was re-instated
in the case of Stacey Harvey,
who admitted to violating it
when she was arrested for
smoking marijuana in the early
morning hours of January 26 in
a Macclenny parking lot. Her
children were in the car at the
Judge Nilon ordered Ms.
Harvey to undergo drug treat-
ment and pay $250. She was
in court for child neglect, con-
tributing to the delinquency
of a minor, misdemeanor pos-
session and possession of drug
The judge ordered Jennifer
Franck to have no contact with a
step-daughter she was accused
of slapping, an act that resulted
in her arrest for child abuse last
May. She pleaded no contest
and will be on probation three
years. The judge withheld adju-
dication and ordered 50o hours
of community service.
Mikell Lucas will be on
probation 18 months and the
court ordered him not to drive

after he pleaded no contest to
habitual driving on a suspended
or revoked license.
Roberta Mills was ordered
onto administrative probation
for 18 months [because she
lives in Georgia] after entering
a similar plea to grand theft.
Nine months in county jail
followed by a two-year proba-
tion were ordered for Antonio
Shapiro for burglary, grand
theft and criminal mischief.
Daryl Tyson admitted to
violating probation and was
ordered to county jail for 364
days. He was on probation for
sale and possession of con-
trolled drugs in 2007 and intro-
ducing contraband into county
jail in 2008.
Judge Nilon ordered Ste-
ven Guthrie into in-patient
treatment for drug abuse after
he admitted to probation viola-
tion for obtaining prescription
medicine by fraud. He will re-
main on probation.

Cartons of smokes

a shoplifter favorite

With the price of cigarettes at an all-time high with imposition of a
new tax recently, they are becoming a prime commodity for shoplift-
ers. Two such incidents involving cartons of cigarettes were reported
the past week.
Jerame Barton, 33, of Sanderson was arrested for petty theft out-
side the Macclenny CVS store just after 4:oo the morning of August
Mr. Barton was questioned by Deputy Earl Lord shortly after he
arrived and Deputy Chris Walker, who is familiar with the suspect,
identified him from a surveillance video. The officer found Mr. Barton
on the CVS property and in the possession of six cartons of Marlboros
valued at $280.
The video showed Mr. Barton walk in the store's front door and
take three cartons before leaving.
An employee at the Murphy gas and convenience store on SR 228
south in Macclenny identified Stevie Gibson, 30, of Macclenny as the
person who lifted a carton of Newports from behind a counter before
walking out about noon of August 15.
A companion identified as Cash O'Neill, 36, also of Macclenny, fol-
lowed the woman out and they drove off. Mr. O'Neill was identified via
a driver's license left in the store.
The carton was valued at $45.
He told Deputy Matt Hilliard he was unaware Ms. Gibson had not
paid for the carton.
Joshua Foerman, 20, and his 17-year-old girlfriend, both of Mac-
clenny, were caught attempting to leave the Walmart Supercenter
the afternoon of August 13 with $65 in merchandise. A store security
worker said she observed them removing price tags and placing the
items in the girl's purse.
Mr. Foerman was arrested and a criminal complaint was filed
against the teen.
Columbia County police arrested Eric Manning, 48, of Jackson-
ville the morning of August 12 not long after he pumped $67 worth of
gas into his Toyota pickup truck and drove off from the Citgo station
on US 90 at Interstate 10.
Mr. Manning, identified by a store clerk as a regular customer, was
arrested on traffic charges. A complaint will be filed for the gas theft.

Re-appointed to

LCCC board
Marcelle Richardson of Glen
St. Mary was recently re-ap-
pointed to another four-year
term on the trustee board at
Lake City Community College.
The term began August 17
and runs through May, 2013.
All board positions are appoint-
ed by the governor and require
assent by the Florida Senate.
The other Baker County rep-
resentative on the LCCC board
is Chuck Brannan, who will

Two felony arrests

County deputies made two
arrests for felony drug posses-
sion the past week, one of them
after the suspect allegedly ap-
proached an unmarked patrol
car soliciting a drug sale.
Investigator John Hardin
said he, Deputy Matt Riegel and
two probation officers were in
the area of the Club 229 north
of Sanderson about 11:30o the
night of August 13.
They drove into the park-
ing lot of the bar a location
known for frequent drug activ-
ity and Deputy Hardin said
Dwayne Robinson, 45, of Sand-
erson approached the vehicle.
"What y'all want?" he asked
the occupants, adding "You
ain't the man, are ya?"
The investigator exited his
vehicle to handcuff Mr. Robin-
son, and said he found a crack
pipe in the suspect's front pock-
et and a baggie with crack rocks
in a rear pocket.
Colby Sigers, 38, of Mac-
clenny was booked for posses-
sion of controlled prescription
drugs and drug paraphernalia
after the 1996 Isuzu he was
driving was stopped about 11:16
pm on August 15.
Deputy Chris Walker said
the vehicle had one headlight,
and that Mr. Sigers, who has a
record of drug-related arrests,
acted nervous when questioned.
He consented to a vehicle search
that yielded both Xanax and
Amphetamine pills, along with
a crack pipe.
Deputy Walker said he

saw Mr. Sigers reach under a
passenger seat when he ap-
proached the Isuzu, and oc-
cupants Jason Eddins, 32, and
Gregory Robins, 45, told the
officer Mr. Sigers said, "Take
this, hide this" after the vehicle
stopped near 8th St. and South
Boulevard in Macclenny.
It also is a neighborhood
known for heightened drug ac-
Deputy Earl Lord said no
drug-related charges resulted
from a traffic stop in the same
neighborhood about 1:20 am on
August 12.
He ticketed driver Adam
Swisher, 24, of Macclenny for
driving on a suspended license,
and said the vehicle smelled
of marijuana smoke when he
approached it. He also found
a marijuana cigarette, a crack
pipe and mesh during a subse-
quent search.
The driver and three other
occupants denied knowing any-
thing about the items.
Thomas Thompson, 25,
of Macclenny was jailed early
on August 15 for disorderly in-
toxication and resisting Deputy
Jeff Shouse after he and other
officers answered a complaint
about loud music.
Deputy Shouse said Mr.
Thompson exclaimed, "Kill that
cracker" as police approached
an address on South Boulevard
about 3:30. He resisted being
pulled from a vehicle, then at-
tempted to hug Deputy Earl

Businesses should tighten up

Increased security of credit information urged

JC Walton speaking to employees at FSI Mortgage identity theft prevention training.

Protecting customer credit card in-
formation is simply good for business,
but not doing so could lead to fines from
the federal government, warned a pair of
identity theft experts conducting a train-
ing session for employees at Macclenny's
FSI Mortgage August 14.
Baker County native JC Walton and his
partner Bill Hamilton are certified identity
theft specialists with Best Protection Ben-
efits of Jacksonville.
They said for the last year and a half
the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has
been requiring many businesses to imple-
ment a written identity theft prevention
Having such programs in place can help
employees detect early warning signs of
identity theft in a businesses' day-to-day
operation and set in motion the proper
protocol for dealing with such an occur-
So far, having a plan has been volun-
tary, but it will ultimately be mandatory.
Not doing so can result in fines, which the
FTC began enforcing May 1, 2009.
"It's an unfortunate fact, but today the
burden of proof of innocence has shifted
entirely to the victim, whether its an in-
dividual or a company," said Mr. Walton.
"You need a plan of action in place to help
mitigate such circumstances."
Best Protection Benefits recently part-
nered with the Baker County Chamber of
Commerce to advise local businesses, par-
ticularly small ones, on preventing loss or
theft of personal information.
The team has conducted hundreds of
the free, hour-long training sessions in the

last few years.
"The major area of identitytheft activity
used to be a person's credit information,"
said Mr. Walton. "But that's not the case
any more."
Identify theft now involves three other
main areas: Social Security, medical re-
cords and committing a crime using some-
one else's identification.
"It's positively scary how accessible
everyone's information is," Mr. Walton
said. "There is actually a Web site where
you can buy a copy of someone's Social Se-
curity number for $49."
FSI Mortgage participants were under-
standably shocked to learn this fact.
"It's true," Mr. Walton assured them.
"There is no law against having possession
of another person's SS number, only a law
against using it."
The consultants also talked about what
the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
views as red flags for suspicious activities
employees should look for. FTC recom-
mends businesses have a policy in place
that will address identification of red flags,
prevention and a program of mitigation
when necessary.
For businesses, having a policy in place
to safeguard against and effectively deal
with identity theft will become manda-
"Having such a policy in place typically
won't be as critical for small businesses
that aren't large credit lending opera-
tions," said Mr. Walton.
Regardless of business size, however,
he and Mr. Hamilton say having a plan in
place is a good practice. It proves helpful
to demonstrate accountability when busi-
ness audits are conducted.
"Many of the things the FTC is recom-
mending involve small changes in day-to-

day operating policy," said Mr. Hamilton.
Some of those recommendations in-
volve using password protected files on
desktop and laptop computers and mak-
ing sure information in hard files is kept
in locked storage cabinets behind locked
doors when not in use.
Mr. Hamilton suggested the "clean desk
policy" as one of the ways employees can
help prevent information from being ac-
cessed by non-authorized personnel.
Something as simple as clearing pa-
pers and files from a desk before going
home and putting information in a locked
drawer can go a long way in helping make
a businesses' identity theft prevention
policy more effective.
"The fact of the matter is we no longer
live in a world where we can leave our
doors unlocked and trust people just walk-
ing by not to steal our information," said
Mr. Walton.
According to the consultants, there are
50,000 identity theft victims in the United
States every day.
"That's up from 27,000 victims since
2007," said Mr. Walton, "quite a signifi-
cant increase in only two years."
Although both men are passionate
about educating the public on the impor-
tance of protection against identity theft,
for Mr. Walton, it's a personal mission.
As someone whose been hit by identity
theft, he is determined to educate people
about the risk and show them how to pro-
tect themselves and their businesses.
"After living through the frustrations
of trying to correct the personal damage it
caused, I decided to become an advocate
for others who fall prey to identity thieves,"
he said. "I especially don't want the folks in
my own county to go through what I did."

Practical advice for ridding plants, trees

of bothersome aphids, clusters of mold

Extension office horticulture agent

I've gotten quite a few ques-
tions lately from homeowners
asking: what's eating my plant?
Surely they are worth sharing
since many of us are probably
having the same problems in
our yards.
Question: There are small,
round orange insects on my
milkweed plants. At first, the
plants didn't seem affected by
them, but now they aren't look-
ing very nice. What are they
and how can I get rid of them?
Answer: These insects are
called aphids. They have soft
pear-shaped bodies with pierc-
ing mouthparts used to suck the
juices from plants. Aphids can
infest almost any plant and can
also be green, black, brown, yel-
low, red or white in color. They
are different from most other
insects in that almost all are
female that rapidly reproduce
without mating and they give
birth to living young instead of
laying eggs. You may be able
to mechanically control these
insects when they are found in
small numbers just by spraying
them off forcefully with the gar-
den hose.
However, aphid populations
seem to be particularly bad this
year and therefore, spraying
them with an insecticidal soap
or lightweight horticultural
oil, such as neem oil, is prob-
ably justified. You can also try
a homemade solution of soapy
water by adding two table-
spoons of dish washing liquid
(do not use those containing a
degreaser or an automatic dish
washing soap or detergent) per
gallon of water. Just be sure to
treat all parts of the plant, in-
cluding the undersides of the
leaves, and retreat at weekly
intervals as necessary or as the
product label directs.
Q: I have black mold cover-

ing my crape myrtles. I have
sprayed them with a fungicide
product but it hasn't helped the
problem. What can I do to get
rid of it?
A: The mold you are seeing
is called sooty mold. It grows on
a substance called honeydew,
which is excreted from certain
insects like whiteflies, aphids,
and mealybugs. These insects
are commonly found feeding on
crape myrtles, typically on the
undersides of the leaves. Once
you eradicate the insects feed-
ing on your plants, the sooty
mold will start to disappear.
One thing to keep in mind
with crape myrtles is that even
light applications of fertilizer
can stimulate lots of succulent
new growth, which is par-
ticularly appetizing for these
insects. Established plants
shouldn't need much, if any,
supplemental fertilizer or wa-
ter. This may help keep insect
populations lower and more
manageable during the summer
months when this is a common
To rid your plants of these in-
sects, you can spray them with
an insecticidal soap or light-
weight horticultural oil such
as neem oil. Be sure to spray
all parts of the plant, including
the undersides of the leaves,
and follow the label directions,
repeating the treatment as di-
rected or as necessary. Scout
your landscape often and spot
treat for these insects as soon as
you see them. This will prevent
heavy infestations and save you
the headache of having to treat
large areas.
Q: Some of the leaves on my
azalea bush are starting to turn
whitish in color. What could be
the cause?
A: It sounds like you may be
seeing lace bug damage, which
appears as white dots or stip-
pling on the upper surface of
the leaf. The culprit, however,

is usually found on the under-
sides of the leaves (young lace
bug pictured) where it uses its
piercing mouthpart to suck out
plant fluids. Sometimes these
creatures are easier to identify
after shaking the foliage over a
piece of
tions can
leaves to
die and
from the
the plant's growth.
To avoid lace bug damage,
keep plants healthy and well-
watered. Also avoid planting
azaleas in full sun as these
plants tolerate less damage
from these insects. If more than
15 percent of the foliage is dam-
aged, an insecticide application
is suggested. Insecticidal soaps
are often a first line of defense
but if the fullness of the plant
makes it difficult to spray then
a systemic insecticide can be
applied to the soil.
Soil treatments are slower in
action, but usually effective for
several weeks. Just be sure to
read the label directions care-
fully as you may need to work
the product into the soil and
water for it to be absorbed more
rapidly. Also make sure that
you identify the insect before
re-treating since the spots and
stippling may remain on leaves
even after pest populations have
been reduced.
If you need assistance identi-
fying insects in your landscape,
contact Alicia Lamborn, Envi-
ronmental Horticulture Agent,
at the Baker County Extension
Office at the ag center on US 90,
or send a picture to alamborn@
A free pest management

Credit card fraud

A Macclenny man may be
the victim of fraud via a PIN
number recorder hacked into
an ATM machine in the Jack-
sonville area.
Allen Dunn reported Au-
gust 11 that his debit card from
American Heritage Bank in
Jacksonville was used to make
$1445 worth of purchases in
Mexico and Somalia. The 18
transactions were debited to his
account between July 31-Au-
gust 10.
The bank notified Mr.
Dunn's wife Amy that it froze
the couple's account after not-
ing the suspicious transactions,
and a representative of the bank
told Deputy David Murray that
scammers may have made use
of a device that records both
a card number and personal
identification number, thus al-
lowing access to the account.
Two other cases of account
fraud were reported the past

Douglas Ahrens of Glen St.
Mary told police his Vystar ac-
count was debited $165 by Unit-
ed Auto Credit Corp. on August
1. He contacted the company
and was told the transaction had
the name Mary Hill attached to
it, and when he reported it to
the sheriffs department August
12, Mr. Ahrens said he knows
no such person.
Jessica Rullan-Kirt of Bald-
win learned her stolen credit
card was used between 11:oo
am-noon at State Line Grocer-
ies north of Macclenny on Au-
gust 13.
Her purse and other cards
were stolen in Baldwin the pre-
vious evening. A clerk at the
store gave police a surveillance
tape covering that time period,
and Deputy Shawn Bishara
noted in his report the clerk
may know the suspect.

Gloria N. Canaday
"Hold our Hand, Lord"

When a loved-one is called up
to Heaven there's an emptiness
hard to explain. We want one
more chance to say, "Hi there."
We'd love to hear their voice
That won't happen for they're
gone forever; they left memo-
ries to carry us through. But
memories can't fill every mo-
ment and memories can't chase
all the blues.
The healing is slow and it's
painful, that's the way you must
have it all planned. It is said
time will heal if we're patient,
so please Lord... continue to
hold our hand until we see our
precious sister again.

Garlon Webb retires

Dr. Garlon Webb officially retired May
19th from the Baker County School District
after nearly four decades.
A retirement ceremony and reception for
Ms. Webb were held at The Mathis House in
Glen St. Mary.
Ms. Webb, a native of Baker County,
earned her undergraduate degree in educa-
tion from Florida State University. She began
her career as a teacher in the early 1970's,
eventually becoming director of vocational
and adult education for the district.
During those years she earned additional
degrees in educational leadership from the
University of Florida and the University of
North Florida.
During her tenure as director, she was in-
strumental in the establishment of the Baker
County High School Career Academy, which
today includes programs in business, culi-
nary arts and health sciences. Last year saw
the establishment of the academy's most re-
cent program in forensic science for students
who plan to pursue a career in crime scene
Ms. Webb was part of the team that
helped secure the original grant for the first
academy program in business.
"I consider that to be one of the most
meaningful points of my career because it
made me see what was possible for educa-
tion in our community," she said. "From
there, we just kept moving forward."
Participation in an academy program
allows a student to earn a credential and
receive hands-on experience that directly
correlates with expectations of today's em-
"It was important to me and the team of
administrators I worked with that our school
district be able to offer students that type of
opportunity," she said.
She has also been involved in establish-
ing a distance learning lab at the high school,
which is highly utilized by dual-enrollment
students. The lab has made it possible for

students to receive real time
instruction from locations
such as Lake City Community
The implementation of new
technology is one of the major
areas of change Ms. Webb has
witnessed during her years in
vocational training.
"When I started, typewrit-
ers were the standard in busi-
ness classes. Today, of course, *
computers are everywhere," 'i
she said.
According to Ms. Webb, '
educational philosophy has
evolved quite a bit as well dur-
ing her career. Accountabil-
ity used to simply mean that
teachers taught the required
curriculum. &.
Today, accountability is I
directly related to student per- .-
formance and requires that
students be prepared for post-
secondary training as well as
for the work force.
Over the years, Ms. Webb says that she
has heard people discouraging others from
entering the teaching profession, and that
saddens her.
"There is also a saying that bothers me
when I hear it," she says.
People who can, do. People who can't,
"That perspective is inaccurate. The ad-
ministrators and teachers I had the privilege
of serving with are among the brightest,
most capable people I have known.
"They could have done anything and ex-
celled at it, but they chose to do the most
important work of all education."
When asked about her personal secret to
success, she laughed.
"I knew I was working with the most high-
ly skilled folks in the district, but I wasn't in-
timidated. I appreciated that.
"I was never afraid of people I knew to be
smarter than myself. I knew that we were all
ultimately working for the same goals and

Although retirement will still be a busy
time for Ms. Webb, she admits some of the
professional pressure of her former career is
now gone.
"I put pressure on myself because I didn't
want our district to miss any opportunities,"
she said.
She obtained a real estate license last year
and will now be focusing some of her energy
in that area. She plans to keep indulging her
passion for collecting fine art, too, particu-

There is one pastime she couldn't indulge
very much while working full time. Now, she
can read fiction at her leisure and she's find-
ing that a most pleasant prospect.
Retirement has given her a lot to reflect
on because she is proud of the work she was
involved in during her career with the Baker
County School District.
"I will always be grateful that I was able to
do my life's work in my home district," she

Saturday's first 2B Youth event at the Bobbie Wil-

Cats prep for West Nassau classic

The Wildcat football team
is down to the home stretch
before the Kickoff Classic on
Aug. 28 at West Nassau.
Coach Bobby Johns and
his staff are trying to put the
finishing touches on the team
in preparation for the new
The Wildcats have been in
pads the past week and have
been getting ready with some
hard hitting drills and an in-
tensive camp held last week at
"We had them from 6:30 in
the morning until about 9:oo
at night. We fed them break-
fast, lunch and dinner," said
Coach Johns.
Johns is encouraged by
the progress of the defense,
which is looking very good at
this point. The offense is still
settling in. There are some
changes at running back and
additions to the offensive
At quarterback, Mardrekus
Ford and Kendrick Sampson
are battling for the starting
job. The battle probably won't

be decided until after the clas-
The Cats had a couple of
potentially serious injuries
that came out of camp. Thom-
as Sirk broke his scapula and
Trenton Harvey possibly sus-
tained an ACL injury to his
knee. Ironically both were
non-contact injuries.
Look for a more balanced
offense from the Cats this
year. They will continue to
primarily run the ball, but
fans will see a lot more pass-
ing this year.
"We've got kids that can
pitch and catch, so we'll be a
much more complete offense
than we've seen since I've
been here," said Johns, now in
his third year as head coach.
The Wildcat Pride pep rally
will be this Friday night, Au-
gust 21, in the BCHS gym be-
ginning at 7:oo pm.
The 2009 Wildcat varsity
and junior varsity football
players and cheerleaders will
be introduced along with

The Baker County School Board announces its policy for Free and Reduced Price meals available for children unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National
School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The district's administrative office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.
Any interested person may review a copy of the policy by contacting Cathy B. Golon, Director of Nutrition Services, 392 South Boulevard East, Macclenny, Florida 32063,
telephone number (904) 259-4330.
Household size and income criteria will be used to determine eligibility. These criteria can be found on the second page of this document. Children from families whose income
is at or below the levels shown may be eligible for Free or Reduced Price Meals. An application can not be approved unless it contains complete eligibility information. Once
approved, meal benefits are good for an entire year. You need not notify the organization of changes in income and household size.
Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for Free or Reduced Price Meals, households must complete the application and
return it to the school. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of deter-
mining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.
Households that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP) orTANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) are required to list on the application only the child's name,
Food Stamp /TANF case number, and signature of adult household member. FLORIDA INCOME ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES

household member;
* Names of all household members;
* Signature of an adult household member certifying the information provided is
correct; and
* Social security number of the adult signing the application or the word "NONE"

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the
school should be contacted. Children of parents or guardians who become unem-
ployed should also contact the school. Such changes may make the student eligible
for reduced price or free meals if the household income falls at or below the levels
shown below.
Under the provisions of the Free and Reduced Price meal policy Cathy B. Golon,
Director of Nutrition Services, will review applications and determine eligibility. If a
parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the ruling of the official, he or she may wish
to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. If the
parent wishes to make a formal appeal, he or she may make a request either orally
or in writing to Sherrie Raulerson, Superintendent of Schools, Baker County School
Board, 392 South Boulevard East, Macclenny, Florida 32063, or by telephone at
(904) 259-6251.
Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the Free and Re-
duced Price Meal application may be used by the school system in determining
eligibility for other educational programs.

* If you receive the income every two weeks, multiply the total gross income by 26.
* If you receive the income twice a month, multiply the total gross income by 24.
* If you receive the income monthly, multiply the total gross income by 12.
